Why Does Jane Fonda Want to Murder Pro-Lifers?
"So Jane Fonda was a really big deal for years and she's obviously lesser now. Not exactly as well known to the younger generation, but an attempt to try to make herself seem relevant again, Jane Fonda went on the view. And said some things that were so extraordinary, so over the top, it really makes you it really makes you just kind of look twice at it. Now mind you, she's been an activist her whole life. She's been involved. She said she was in support of the civil rights movement, but she most famously visited Hanoi in 1972 and sat inside of a North Vietnamese double-A gun, gun used to shoot at American jets. Who is it? It's an anti air gun. Thank you, because I was like, how do you sit inside of a gun? It was an anti air weapon. During that visit, she accused the United States of systematically targeting Vietnam's Dyke system to cause flooding and cause massive civilian casualties. This was not true. That is, that's Jane Fonda, and you could be considered a traitor for that. She's been at the center of so much political activism and controversy and it's interesting. She considers herself a big feminist. Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem and all these people were considered to be really big feminists yet she's very quiet on the fact that men are now able to continue their quote unquote terror campaign against women. She said that oil executives and politicians who don't support climate change agenda should be treated like Nancy war criminals. But she's really trying to outdo herself here. Let's play cut one 18 of Jane Fonda on the view, like cut one 18. Many decades now of having agency over our body of being able to determine when and how many children to have. We know what that feels like. We know what that's done for our lives. We're not going back. I don't care what the laws are. Besides besides marking and protesting, what else do you suggest? It's not a miraculous or did you say? Murder. She's kidding. Wait a second. She's just. Don't say that. You don't know. They'll pick up on that and just kidding. Well, let me talk to you about that. What's most troubling about that clip is how the audience laughs. When she says they should kill us. And she looks like she's not kidding. Jane Fonda's a very angry person. So let's take this apart. So Jane Fonda says we know what having agency over our bodies has given us. What has it given you, Jane Fonda? You're a very angry and bitter person.

CNN Bans On-Air Drinking During New Year's Eve Broadcasts
"Again, one of those shows that not exactly what you signed up for, but it's Monday and that's the way it is. Also on CNN, I watched the history of sitcoms. The other night oh, by the way, big news. The head of CNN. Chris licked, my told you is going to do great things at that network. He's still making sweeping changes. You know, he got rid of Brian stelter as we know, the guy who also the guy who was jerking off during the Zoom call, Jeffrey too, but he's gone. He took Don lemon's prime time shell away, and now he's really changing things. It was announced that there will be no more drinking alcohol during CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast. Doesn't Chris lick no, that was the only reason why any of us tuned in to see Andy Collin lit up with Anderson Cooper who could barely handle a shot. We used to have a drunk Kathy Griffin with a lot of fun people, Don Lennon was loaded, dancing, it's fun. Give him one day a year to be assholes. Well, seen in their assholes, all year long. But you know, one day is not that big. But no, he cut it out. No more alcohol. So I'm watching this show, the sitcom story, you know, no show ever, ever says anything nice about rosemary. You guys know rosemary. I don't think all of you do. You might act like you do, but you don't. Those of you under 40, 45, probably have no clue. Rosemary was great on the Dick Van Dyke show. She was married to Maury Amsterdam on the show. Van Dyke was something you always want. And he'd walk in and trip over the sofa, a little cushion, and it got home and had his Martine. It was one of those shows, whatever. It was easy viewing, you hear the dogs? just as loud. But rosemary at 5 years old, she was offered a 7 year contract and became a radio star at NBC radio network. And then she made a bunch of films. At 5. Could you imagine what her me too stories were about? I mean, she's dead now, but could you imagine the stories she could tell you about running around desks and who was trying to nail her? This is back when women were secretaries and housewives on librarians. I also saw a bunch of stuff how great to watch Ed Asner as Lou grant on the Mary Tyler Moore show, saw a clip where he got all hot and bothered by Mary's friend, wrote a morgen star, remember Valerie Harper house I loved rhoda. Rona was like before Laverne on Laverne and Shirley. Before Laverne defazio, rona Morgan stern was the first girl on a sitcom that, as an Italian kid, or as a city kid, you'd go, I mean, I grew up a Long Island, but I still had a little bit of Brooklyn in me. You see that girl and you go, oh yeah, that's my cousins. That's our Friends. I know wrote a Morgan stern. Jewish or Italian same thing. Laverne de fazio, same thing. I didn't grow up with Cindy's. I grew up with Laverne's. And I grew up with rhoda's not Mary Tyler Moore's. And it was wonderful to see her because then you said, oh my God, there's a chance for all of us to get work. It's a lot similar, it's very similar to what black people felt when suddenly they thought to appear. There are people began to appear in sitcoms. You know, build caused by was huge and I spy and it made them go, oh my God, we can do this. One of our own is there. So I get that. But there's one part where Lou, Lou grant walks around rhoda as she walks into the newsroom. And he goes, you, you're different. I like you. Then he goes behind it, and he says, I like it from back here too. An old Valerie Harper can say is, I think he's about to kick my tie is what a different world. Thinking back when I was a kid, I had no idea that kind of talk bothered women. Because I saw my mother and my sisters laugh at those comments. So how could any of us think that what they were saying was improper? You know what I mean? And then Betty White, they showed Betty White. I know Betty White way older than me, but I can't explain it. I had a crush on him. I remember being a teenager. And thinking, you know what? When I never married, it would be great to be married to a woman like Betty White. Look at that dimple on her left cheek, you can hold a couple water in that dimple. She's so funny. She loves her men. I just felt like Betty's the best. And that was a kid. I was right.

"Back and we're glad you're with us here on the program. I don't know why I'm laughing. It's Friday. John is in Louisville. Hello, John. Hey, Paul. Thanks for coming in this Friday. Well, you know, this is almost an entire month in a row. You realize that, John? I know. I think Randy has had a good influence on you. Randy showed up today. I haven't seen Randy all week since Monday or Tuesday. Marie, where are you? Sounds like an open bar. Randy's claiming he's working somewhere else in the building. Yeah. It's on my no forensic evidence to support that. We know any stair we can hear him chirping in the background. Great interview opening interview, by the way. And I was really impressed the way he paid homage to Gary Peterson, who left under unfortunate circumstances. Yeah, that's where you always used to say, so and so left our company under unfortunate circumstances. He was fired. All your name wasn't up on the work schedule at McDonald's, right? You have to bring that up from 50 years ago. I mean, do you have to, one of the great one of the great horrors of my entire life and you had to write. I had just met. I had just about made everyone forget that I had been fired at McDonald's. Okay, my bad. Anyways, I think path went through some I think that went through some sticker shack when you went over those numbers, but keep in mind as well, Paul, that the Big Ten will renew their agreement contract with the big media companies before, SEC concept for renewal. A lot of people are crediting Jim Delaney today for making a short term deal. The last time around, and that's what Kevin Warren has done. And listen, it's fair, everyone is going to talk about the SEC's previous deal with 15 years. This is ten. I think we can all very gently agree the 15 year deal was a big mistake. Yes. I've got from 24/7 sports, I know you don't want to go over the preseason polls, but they've got a list of overrated and underrated teams. I'll just read them off to you and you give me a yay or nay. Be happy to. Michigan state, which is average at 14 rate ranking is overrated. I disagree. I think they're about where they belong. Okay, this one you'll like. Arkansas, which is average ranking is 21. It's underrated. I agree. Yeah. Oregon, averaging about a 12 ranking is overrated. I agree. I think they're going to strike. And Iowa hawkeyes and of course, they've got Kirk fair and coaches with more with less. Is averaging a 28 ranking they're underrated. So far I'm in totally agreement. Yeah. Here's the challenge. Texas a and M averaging about a 7 ranking is overrated. Correct. Yeah, particularly in Jimbo's mind. And then this one I think you'll find interesting Penn State James Franklin never never achieving much. It's been averaging 27 ranking is underrated. I think they'll do a little better than that, although I do think auburn is going to beat them week three. Yeah, not to mention Michigan Michigan state in Ohio State. But you finish 18 four today and you can still finish in the top 25. That's how cluttered the middle class is in college football. And hired Jimmy Sexton to get you a ten year contract. Notre-Dame, I think you'll agree with this rated an average of 5 is overrated. Yes, unfortunately, I'm on the record of having said that this week, yes. Here comes a challenge. Michigan, which is averaging a 7 ranking that's underrated. Keep in mind you're wrong last year. I'll be right this year. They are overrated. Okay. This one is stunning to me because he's in a second year Texas average ranking of 23 is overrated. I think they're going to have a bounce back here. We hope. So our disagreement. Yeah. And finally, Tennessee averaging 26 ranking is underrated. Vastly underrated. Yes, great. Paul have a great weekend. Thank you very much. By the way, it was announced today officially this has been in the news for a couple of weeks unofficially. That Dan Mullen, the former Florida coach. Has been hired by ESPN as a in studio analyst for Thursday, Friday and Saturday football. I know all of you have been waiting for that announcement. How about that Dan Mullen? Also official urban Meyer fired in disgrace last year after one of the worst first seasons in NFL head coaching history has been hired by Fox. Imagine that. Still hire anybody at Fox. Larry is up next. Hello, Larry. Good afternoon. Paul, thanks for taking my call. I appreciate this very much. I would like to say that I have a great deal of respect for you and there's not many people in the industry that I have. 40 years retired a play style. And you want a very few. You're such a professional. Thank you. I want to say this to you up front. I'm a Dan wool UK fan. I always have been. And I go back to the days that the man in the brown suit, but you know who I'm talking about. The baron hate off her up. Okay, he was a personal friend. Really, anyway, he's still getting over there when we work from back in the day. Now, a couple of months, I called you and told you about, they don't use the truth or Kentucky anymore. They put all variants since I found out they don't use basketball games. And the best I've been able to find out after I've cut out all the clutter about three years ago, there was a little dust depth between the chief of police the UK campus, place and someone with a KSP, I presume a supervisor anyway, they kind of got into disagreement. He kicked Kentucky state police off the campus everywhere. He won't let them come in. Oh my goodness. Yeah. I don't know why this is going on for three years. Why would you blame all the troops if you had a disagreement with one person? That is absurd. I don't think that's just really being here on the social media. Who made this final call? The information I got was from the chief of police, campus police at UK and kicked him out. And that's it. I don't need to tell you, but that's been a part of college sports and it's just to me it's good for both. I'm really sorry to hear that. Tell me, tell me this before you go. Because I have always been fascinated by coach rub. I met him as a young person, didn't just hello and but he's such an intriguing figure. What was he like to know as a friend? Oh, he was a character. I can remember going to the basketball games, and I remember one time he said, oh, look at him fine looking boys and I'm great uniforms. That's been great. So glad to see you all. Never get to see two of you one time. You know how it is if you see two at one time, there's no badge really happened. But when I see two of you at the game, he said it really makes my heart do it. That's where it was. But anyway, I'll finish as I can. The I don't know why this is when all. And I have no dog in the fight. I don't, you know, that's where I started my career in Kentucky state police. And while they treated him like that, Kentucky is the only school in the SEC does not use groupers. My two friends from Tennessee have her throw down the all the time. Well, if you want to see the truth is going to be. That is just part of the culture of southern football. Hey, hey, by the way, here's the official announcement from Fox, big noon kick-off returns, which it's original cast, urban Meyer, Matt,

"A fine wine. Let's get some headlines. The NCAA let me try to read this with a straight face. The NBA, the NCAA, NBA, all the same professional. Ask member institutions to help turn in help them with NIL violations. Why don't you do your own job NCAA because you can't. Ah, the SEC versus big Tim. This is a well, it's not a war, is it? It's worse. For the supremacy of who can beat your chest, the loudest. It's all about money. And does it mean more? Let's get to the calls and pat starts it off from Georgia. Hey pat. Hey, Paul, thanks. I thought I heard today. There's a Big Ten, 7 years, 7 to $8 billion. Is that right? That is correct. Do you know if you see LA and southern Cal or baked into that number? I would assume they are, yes. Okay. Now, talking about the SEC for a minute. When is their contract? How do they even start? Well, no, but we have a contract with ESPN, right? Yeah, it runs until I believe 2034. So the SEC not the ACC, right? No, I know exactly what you said. Listen to me. Okay. The SEC contract has begun, but the football part of it does not, the new football part of it, which means taking over the three 30 window does not begin until 2024. Or 25. Let me think. 24, yeah. Okay. Well, and may I assume that Texas and Oklahoma are not baked into the contract. What they mean, I believe, is $80 million, they are worth an approximate $80 million per school. All right. So listen to this for a second. I just grabbed this. This is the annual national media revenue according to multiple reports. When all this goes into effect, the NFL will get ten point will get 10 billion per year. The NBA gets two two and a half Major League Baseball writer under two, the Big Ten when all this goes into effect will be about 1.1 billion in the SEC is at 588 million. And that will be adjusted. Well, you said when everything goes into effect. This is adjusted for when it goes into effect in 2024. Okay. So we're about half a half a $1 billion behind the Big Ten right now and that won't be corrected until 2034. Is that a safe conclusion? Yeah, I mean, listen, you understand you were in the world of finance. I mean, there are all kinds of look ins. There are elevators, there are clauses. As I told somebody yesterday, the problem was the CBS deal was, there was not a clause in there for expansion. There is a cause in all of these new contracts for expansion. You can be assured of that. And it's significant clauses, by the way. So I don't think, I mean, at some point, you do have to go back to the table. You understand that. And I'm getting into an area that is really not my domain, but at some point I'm sure the SEC and ESPN, when more schools show up, they go in there and adjust these numbers. Okay. Well, and there are three different networks. For the $1.1 billion. That's why it was easier to get that number as high as it was. Okay. What Kevin Warren did is the same thing that Roger Goodell has always done. And he has done it even more in recent years as he has Roger Goodell has four networks, a party to his NBC was Sunday Night. He's got ESPN on Monday night. He has CBS and Fox on Sunday afternoon. And that's exactly what Warren did. The SEC has its entire deal with ESPN. And that's not necessarily a bad thing and I would certainly hope that we would ride the coattails of the Big Ten to more money sooner than 20, 34. My other observation is NBC's night game is probably going to be your West Coast. Right. And your noon games and the three 30 game probably going to be the east coast in the Midwest. Yeah, and then that's where when you start trying to evaluate, okay, Texas, Oklahoma versus USC and UCLA. That southern Cal deal meant a great deal to the Big Ten because now they have a window that is more suitable for the West Coast. And a lot of times you have a three 30 Eastern Time West Coast game. It's starting at 1230 in LA or an evening game 7 30 starting at four 30 there. I mean, I don't want to speak for you, but they're on that many West Coast games. I'm staying up until two 30 in the morning to watch the end of. Well, there aren't any West Coast games I'm going to start looking at at 10 o'clock at night. I mean, I just turn on SportsCenter and SEC channel in the morning, find out what happens. That's a good idea. So anyway, we firmly, we do recommend. And by the way, when we talk about ESPN, we're not just talking about one channel here. We're talking about ESPN, ESPN2, and the SEC network, which has three games on an ABC, excuse me. So yeah, I mean, that's a big deal. I mean, yes. No, it is. ESPN is a lot more than, well, I was about to say it's a lot more than Stephen a Smith. It's not, that he is he is ESPN. You like Stephen a Smith. Steve, you do. Yeah, you know, I don't know how many friends he has, but I am proud to count myself among the very few. And I listened to him because of what you just said. So what attracts you to Steven a? What attracts me to Stephen is his life story. He grew up poor kid in the queen and queens. And he fought at it. He fought his way out of there. He played basketball. In college in North Carolina at an HBCU and he was a sports writer, a good part of his life and somehow he gets hired by ESPN and he gets fired. And then he does it all over again. I mean, I really like his story. And one day, I talked to him the other day. He is going to be where we are in a couple of weeks, and we're going to try to get him in studio. We did this once when we were in New York. I don't know if you remember the show. And when people hear his story and hear him talk, and I'm not talking about screaming and hollering about who's better, Michael or LeBron, stuff that matters, not one bit to anyone. He's a fascinating person. He's not for everyone. But I genuinely like him and consider him a close friend. We'll take a break. More to come. More of your phone calls right after this.

A Dire 2022 Election Warning With Phill Kline
"Phil, are you optimistic or pessimistic that coming into November? We are not going to have a repeat. What is to prevent Zuckerberg or Bezos or any one of these kleptocrats to come in with $400 million and do what they did in 2020 in the 2022 midterms? I'm pessimistic right now, Charlie. The laws that have been passed are putting the finger in the dike and that engaged in the fundamental structural reform we need to make sure we have transparent inclusive and accountable elections. Just one example. Georgia claims they banned private money in elections. They did not. What they did is say, you can't use private money and lets it appropriately a city account or the state. Well, that's exactly what Zuckerberg and the left field with the nonprofit money. They gave it to city, who don't even have the responsibility of managing the election, but were left this and in Democrat stronghold. And those cities appropriate the money. So a lot of people are taking credit for changing things. Things have not been changed. There's a lot of work to do. And the American voters alliance, which is affiliated with us and it's the amistad project, Charlie, and American voters alliance, which is engaged in this. And we've got policy proposals, the best practices that we hope will be adopted. And so I'd encourage your listeners and viewers to go to the American voters alliance dot org and sign up and get involved and we're going to be announcing the reform package you're pretty soon. But right now we're not ready. And it's not just Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg was only a funder. And he wasn't even the largest wonder of the effort. There's we've tracked over $1.7 billion of services in money that were moved through leftist nonprofits that dictated the way the election would be run to benefit it came with it. And they're geared up again. They're getting ready to do it again.

Today's episode is about the different paths to mitigation and adaptation that we might see in the future as the damage caused by climate change becomes too great to ignore. Wait and hope for a super genius is certainly the path some individuals and probably some politicians will continue to take the myth of the billionaire inventor and the personality cults around men like along. Musk and their own. Little green projects has made this a popular school of thought over the last decade. The good news is that we've already reached a point of calamity. Great enough that support for this sort of solution is probably passed. Its peak on the day. I write this chapter july twenty fourth. The guardian has just published an article warning that yet. Another heat dome set to settle over the entire continental united states the article quoted. Michael verner a senior scientist at the lawrence. Berkeley national laboratory quote you expect hotter heatwaves with climate change but the estimates may have been overly conservative with the pacific northwest heatwave. You conclude the event would almost be impossible without climate change but in a straightforward statistical analysis. From before this summer also include it would be impossible with climate. Change to that is problematic because the event happened for years. Climate scientists have been attacked as alarmist yet. The growing consensus is that they were actually too conservative. With their warnings. The situation was more severe than most reports portrayed before we go further. It's worth looking at why this was. I found a good scientific american article from two thousand nineteen by the authors of a book called discerning experts which analyzed the methods by which experts had assessed environmental damage in order to provide policy recommendations. They found a consistent tendency by scientists to underestimate the severity of threats and the repeatedly with which they might unfold quote among the factors that appear to contribute to underestimation is the perceived need for consensus. Or what we might label universality the felt need to speak in a single voice many scientists. Worry that if disagreement has publicly aired government officials will complete differences of opinion with ignorance and use this as justification for an action others. Worry that even if policy want to act they will find it difficult to do so if scientists fail to send an unambiguous message therefore they will actively seek to find their common ground and focus on areas of agreement in some cases that will only put forward conclusions on which they can all agree. How does this lead to underestimation. Consider case in which most scientists think that the correct answer to a question is in the range of one to ten but some belief that it could be as high as one hundred in such a case. Everyone will agree that it is at least one to ten but not everyone will agree that it could be as high as one hundred therefore the area of agreement is one to ten and this is reported as the consensus view wherever there is a range of possible outcomes that includes a long high end tale of probability. The area of overlap will necessarily lie at or near the low end. The other causes problems. They include a common mental model practiced by the media as well as by scientists which tends to unconsciously consider facts to be something which all reasonable people should be able to agree upon if there is a mass disagreement over the conclusions of a report. Then it must be because those conclusions are based on opinion rather than facts and the third reason for underestimation involves very simple worry of a reputation in good science. Being wrong. shouldn't be bad for your career. As a large part of the discipline is making hypotheses which are either proven or disproven by testing. But when we're talking about a field as politicized as climate science going too far in a prediction gets you labeled an alarmist by media talking heads. This leads to an understandable trend to conservatism in climate predictions. All these factors have already caused huge problems for our society and as we move forward towards trying to adapt these trends will if not disrupted caused further calamity in the nineteen fifties fighter pilot. Colonel john boyd. Coined the term oda loop to describe the cycle by which human beings and organizations make decisions at the operational level during military campaigns. Oda stands for observe orient. Decide act in colonel. Boyd's terminology has been applied in a dizzying variety of situations. Since from training troops for combat to trading corporations for cyber security the odor loop helps explain. How an agile and creative opponent can disrupted defeat a seemingly much more powerful enemy. The basic idea is that you can break any part of your enemies ota loop. You can stop them from properly reacting in a given situation and eventually defeat them. Stop the enemy from observing you. And they can't orient themselves to your attacked decide how to respond to you or take action disrupt the enemy's ability to make decisions and even if they see the problem they won't be able to act on it for years. Our ability to properly observe orient ourselves to the problem of climate change has been hampered by all the things we just discussed as i type. This wildfires are burning across the width of canada. Subways in multiple major world cities have become watery tunes. The scope of the issue is finally beyond a reasonable doubt. Almost everyone's mind yet. We still find ourselves disrupted when we reach the there will come a time when the governments of the world will decide and then act with much more of a concerted plan than we've seen before when it comes to protecting what that decision or more realistically those decisions might be the best book i found is climate leviathan by joel wainwright and joff man. The term leviathan comes from a book by hobbs the philosopher not the tiger which argues that peace and unity can only be achieved by the creation of a sovereign power responsible for protecting the commonwealth given absolute authority to do so. It's essentially an argument for a big all powerful state or sovereign to keep everything nice wainwright and man's books stems from the premise. That most people out of fear or desperation will probably back some sort of leviathan as an answer to climate change quote we contend that the drive defend capitalist social relations will push the world towards climate leviathan namely adapation projects to allow capitalist elites to stabilize their position amidst planetary crises. This scenario we posit implies shift in the character and form of sovereignty the likely emergence of planetary sovereignty defined by an exception proclaimed in the name of preserving life on earth. We're not suggesting that sovereignty will be characterized by the quasi monarchical rule of a single person but we recognize suggests hobbs himself and even karl schmidt at least after nineteen. Thirty two also recognized that it is almost certainly be exercised by collection of powers coordinated to save the planet and to determine what measures are necessary. And what and who must be sacrificed in the interests of life on earth wainwright and man envisioned a few different types of possible leviathan. One elucidated above is a neoliberal capitalist leviathan think of it as an extension of the western states and the attitudes we've seen so far the smiling face of someone like joe biden talking about the importance of using paper bags. We'll giving exxon tax break so they can invest in cloud seeding technology one of the most frightening things about this possibility. Is that the very same corporate actors responsible for fighting any action on climate change until now will surely find a key space for themselves. Partaking in state-funded mitigation efforts. Think of jeff bezos suggesting polluting industrial buildings moved into space or imagine chevron using some of their vast fortune to invent snow peer style technology to blanket the atmosphere in reduce warming. These possibilities are frightening because any solutions dreamed up under this regime are likely to be as selfish and ill-considered as the long campaign to deny the reality of climate change in this future. The architects of our present misery enshrined themselves for referees are protectors wainwright right and man also envisioned what they somewhat cheekily call climate mao an anti capitalist state centered leviathan possibly based around china or a block of southeast east asian nations well climate leviathan would-be. An attempt to maintain the present capitalist world order while stabilizing the environment. Climate mao is a quasi revolutionary attempt to replace it with a system justice centralized but not based around the moneyed interests. That got us here from the book. Climate leviathan even today when an increasingly non malice chinese state invokes. Its full regulatory authority. It can achieve political feats unimaginable in liberal democracy. Perhaps the most notable instance of state coordinated climate authority is the matter in wits. Beijing's air quality was re-engineered during the two thousand olympics. Flowers potted all over the city. Traffic barred trees planted in the desert and factories and power. Plants closed all to successfully blue the skies for the games. Another effect of this power is the way in which the chinese state effectively killed. General motors gas hummer in early. Two thousand ten. When it blocked the divisions sale to john john heavy industrial machinery due to the vehicle's emissions levels one might also point to the great green wall against desertification which if successfully completed will cross four thousand four hundred eighty kilometers of northern china in various tree-planting programs that will reportedly give the country forty-two percent forest cover by twenty fifty and since vowing in the summer of two thousand ten to apply an iron hand to the task of reducing emissions. The communist party closed more than two thousand steel bills. Another carbon-emitting factories by march two thousand eleven in mid two thousand sixteen th the government announced new dietary guidelines encouraging people to consume no more than seventy five grams of meat per day reducing meat. Consumption was justified on health and environmental grounds and hailed as by climate activists such policies for tell the possibility of a climate.

The situation is well and truly fucked.

It's only children will be endless. Resource wars now. These are fairly broad categories. And we're likely to see variations of each of these archetypes attempted. You may note my lack of enthusiasm for any of the possibilities. This is a result of my own bias. I am not a statist. And while behemoth is obviously nightmare solution i am not excited by the neoliberal. Climate leviathan or climate mao. Top down solutions to big problems can work clearly but they have a nasty tendency to crush people in order to fit them into a system an example of why fear climate leviathan in particular came on june thirtieth twenty twenty one when the los angeles police department raided the home of a man with a significant quantity of illegal fireworks in the midst of the deadliest fire season in living memory. The boys at the top decided that cops would need to crack down on fireworks vendors. It seems logical enough from a high vantage point and elected leaders. Always like to send police into see shit because then they can say x. Pounds of substance. Why was confiscated and that makes for an easy sound bite but on this occasion the lapd fucked up their technicians loaded. What they thought were sixteen. Point five pounds of explosives into an armored truck in order to safely detonate it. They set off forty two pounds which started a chain reaction that turned the entire armored truck into a massive i e the the resulting explosion destroyed multiple homes and led to the deaths of two people plus numerous injuries. These are the sort of decisions we can expect from climate leviathan and the sort of consequences to their book. Wainwright and man list of the least likely but best case scenario is something they call climate x. This would be a decentralized ground up adaptation to the realities of climate change a reorganization of society not around the lines forced on it by some leviathan but by regular people rejecting both the consumptive destructive patterns of old in the need for a strong dictatorial power to envision. A future for them. This is the least likely scenario for a number of reasons for one thing. Clement x requires getting a large number of people to embrace a future radically different in fundamental organization from the world. They've known climate now has to do this too. But within the sort of strong state framework that is at least much more familiar and thus more comfortable to billions of people. We can't envision the state taking charge and instituting radical change much more easily than we can imagine hundreds of millions of people making the decision to alter their lives for the betterment of billions of strangers. Climate leviathan offers a very plausible set of predictions for the different paths. That are most likely but of course it is still not guaranteed that our nation or other large blocks of nations will ever complete their climate. Ooh loop mike. Davis is a historian antisocial critic with an enviable reputation for predicting the future in nineteen ninety. He published city of quartz analysis of los angeles. That many saw is predicting the epic riots that convulsed the city nineteen ninety-two his work was respected enough within los angeles that the crypts and the bloods brought him on as an advisor to help negotiate peacemaking deals in nineteen ninety. Eight davis wrote cataclysm of fear which predicted the next twenty. Plus years of life in southern california with the line cataclysm has become virtually routine in two thousand five. He published a book on the avian. Flu plague of capitalism titled the monster enters davis quoted. The influence a researcher robert webster saying if a pandemic happened today hospital facilities would be overwhelmed and understaffed because many medical personnel would-be afflicted with the disease vaccine production would be slow. Critical community services would be mobilized reserves of existing vaccines and medical equipment would be quickly depleted leaving. Most vulnerable to infection sounds familiar. Permanent bio protection against new plagues davis added would require more than vaccines. It would need the suppression of these structures of disease. Emergence the revolutionary performs in agriculture and urban living that no capitalist or state capitalist country would ever willingly undertake also by the way. Mike davis predicted the two thousand eight economic crash in an article for the los angeles times. The point is he's the kind of guy you should listen to when he makes predictions in two thousand ten. Mike looked at the utter failure of international efforts to mitigate climate change in imagined a not improbable scenario in which mitigation would be quietly abandoned in favor of accelerated investment selective adaptation for earth's first class passengers. And it's here. It might bring us briefly back to the subject of jeff visas flight to space. An analysis by media matters found that the nbc abc and cbs morning shows devoted. Two hundred twelve minutes to bazo says flight. By contrast those same shows spent two hundred sixty seven minutes covering climate in all twenty twenty now rich people flee to space. Isn't the likely solution. The elites will shoot for. It's more probable that they'd continue what they've been doing for decades. Diverting more resources towards creating permanent safe zones shielded from the worst of climate change in isolated enough from population centers that their security forces can protect them from interlopers. There will be token efforts carbon taxes and famine relief but on the whole the world's poor and much of the middle class will be abandoned to misery in-depth the public field the will invest in his law enforcement. We've seen shades of this already last spring when the corona virus started it's deadly rampage through their western democracies the internet filled with a flurry of near identical articles from bloomberg corona virus. Escape rich americans head to new zealand. The new yorker doomsday prep for the super-rich vanity fair inside the survivalist bunker where some wealthy people hope to write out corona virus and from the guardian super-rich jet off to disaster bunkers amid corona virus outbreak. The gist of all these articles is that the ultra wealthy have built a global system of safe houses and bunkers in places they deemed secure in the event of a wide variety of catastrophes. What i find interesting about this is that their preparations are not particularly focused in what we know does not suggest any sort of collapsed. The wealthy seat coming. Due to the special knowledge they have as members of the elite. rather the evidence suggests they've simply fallen into the same assumption is millions of regular people. Something terrible is on the horizon in two thousand seventeen lincoln. Co-founder reid hoffman. Told the new yorker that he estimated fifty percent of silicon valley billionaires had already purchased some sort of apocalypse escape plan. And honestly if you had that kind of money why wouldn't you. This is bleakest. Hell of course the individuals most responsible for encouraging and profiting from the reckless consumption that has endangered assault abandoning society via the most literal application of. Fuck you money in history but when you dig into the whole story here it's actually somewhat optimistic. Because the thing is these people are clearly justice terrified as the rest of us. That's why they do things like spend one point five million dollars a piece for nine hundred twenty square foot room in a survival condo built into an underground missile silo in kansas. The best thing many of them can think to do is build isolated miniatures of the outside world staff it with former navy seals and hope for the best. These are not people who have a plan. This was really driven home to me in a two thousand eighteen article by douglas. Rush cov a media theorist and writer whose work has been extremely influential among tech elites in two thousand seventeen. He was invited to what he described as a super deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech on the future of technology quote. After i arrived. I was ushered into what i thought was the green room but instead of being wired microphone are taken to a stage. I sat around playing roundtable as my audience was brought to me. Five superwealthy guys. Yes all men from the upper echelon of the hedge fund world. After a bit of small talk. I realized they had no interest in the information. I had prepared about the future of technology. The hid come with questions of their own. Those questions quickly led to the climate crisis and they wanted to know if new zealand alaska was a safer escape. Bet one of these. Ceo's had just finished building his own underground bunker system and wanted to know. How do i maintain authority over my security force. After the event quote the event that was their euphemism for the environmental collapse social unrest nuclear. Explosion unstoppable virus or mister robot. Hack that takes everything down. The single question occupied us for the rest of the hour. They knew armed guards would be required to protect their compounds from the angry. Mobs but how would they pay. The guards wants money was worthless. What would stop the guards from choosing their own leader. The billionaires considered using special combination locks on the food supply that only they knew or making guards where disciplinary collars of some kind in return for their survival or maybe building robots to serve as guards workers if that technology could be developed in time. That's when it hit me at least as far as these gentlemen were concerned. This was a talk about the future of technology. Taking their cue from elon. Musk colonizing mars. Peter thiel reversing the aging process. Or sam oltman rakers file uploading their minds into supercomputers they were preparing for a digital future. That a whole lot less to do with making the world a better place than it did. With transcending the human condition altogether in insulating themselves from a very real and present danger of climate change rising sea levels mass migrations global pandemics nativist panic in resource. Depletion for them. The future of technology is really about just one thing escape. Et one point rush cough suggested that if these billionaires were really concerned about the loyalty of their hired security long-term their best bet would be to start treating. Those people like family now. Money loses value after the event. Love does not he also noted that if they were to use their power and influence to extend this ethos of inclusivity more broadly in their business practices in might make such an event less likely to occur quote. They were amused by my optimism but they didn't really buy it. They were not interested in how to avoid a calamity. there convinced we are too far. Gone for all their wealth and power. They don't believe they can affect the future and that right there has why i am actually optimistic. Because these people are the enemy we are at present engaged in a battle to determine how the future of our species and life on earth will look we and by we i mean people who want a better freer healthier future for all have a few different enemies but our most powerful foes are the people currently standing atop the pyramid fighting tooth and nail against any change to society that reduces their privilege and power. These men and women will go to their graves to preserve the present power structure as long as the rest of us go first for decades. The enemy has had the upper hand using disinformation propaganda. The violence of the state in an arsenal of lesser weapons. They disrupted every attempt to build a less extractive more sustainable society but now that the fires are at everyone's back door. They have no plan beyond locking themselves away from the consequences of the world. They insisted on building reality can no longer be denied. And that's disrupted their ota loop. This.

"Four thumbs and the dike. We have had too much anarchy in our city. The mayor says and with the county sheriff and city police chief behind him he lays out the city's aggressive plan to sweep the encampments and strike back it criminals hiding in the guise of a social justice movement. He's talking about you tom. Aaron and a growing group of friends and allies who spent most of october and november doing addiction resistance it all started with the right-wing vigilantes who carried out a series of drive-by attacks on the camps. At first they just lobbed firecrackers but that soon evolved into emptying handguns in tents in response. The camps organized roving defensive teams. There were a couple of gun fights and one death. Although you weren't around for any of those by the time the attacks stopped. You had a large organized. Group of people used taking direct action. From that point. Making the jump to proactively stopping addictions wasn't such a big deal. Half the landlords in your part of town had jumped ship for other cities with less intense climates. Many of their properties were sold to banks or large rental companies. Unemployment in your city hit his highest thirty percent by some counts and more people nationwide are out on the street than there have ever been at any point in your life at least where you live. Though people have options there are now five camps hosting more than five thousand people. Two of them are based out of large apartment. Complexes to were in city parks in the fifth is made from several square blocks up the city that had an addiction rate topping. Eighty percent some of the people joining collectives are asking for help. Our folks who months ago shirley supported the cops cracking down on encampments. Now they're on your side driven by desperation. You try not to let that piss you off. What matters is that you're in this together. Now and aggressive eviction defense has kept hundreds of your neighbors in their homes and helped the population in the camps. Stay manageable but of course. Landlords aren't happy with that and local. Business owners keep blaming the camps for graffiti. And hampering the recovery. You spend enough time online to know. This shit is happening all around the country and eviction defense action in portland turned into a gunbattle activists in a. Responded to the teargassing of an encampment by bombing and lapd van and worst of all the nypd killed three activists while clearing out a squat in brooklyn. Every day to different digital collectives allied with the encampments gather not just news of different protests around the country but tactical information and after action reports. You tom and all of the other. Hundreds of people in the defensive committee have been taking notes. You've welded together couch trips and built vehicle barricades rigged up paint cannons to coat police car windshields and experimented with a dozen other tactics to protect the main camps. This is bigger than your hometown. And your little movement. The federal government has responded to the absolute societal freefall of the last year by blaming anarchist's antigovernment extremists and an addiction to government entitlements. Disaster funding keeps being slashed. Which is where a lot of this started anyway. But the president just announced a raft of emergency police funding using money the last administration the earmarked for climate resiliency projects. You've spent the last few days going about your duties with the sense of doom hanging over your head. it's not just the imminent government. Crackdown the food situation has gotten increasingly tenuous wheat crop saw less than half their normal harvest. Even potatoes dropped significantly. Separate of the camps have started permaculture projects in greenhouses but no one is growing. Anything like what you need to feed all these people. Donations helped for a while. But everyone's tapped for the last few weeks. You've been able to close the gap by sending out dumpster diving teams into the neighborhoods with stock to grocery stores and functioning restaurants. One of your neighbors works in an amazon warehouse and he provided tom with information on how to break in and where to find the dry goods all this helped but the police have grown increasingly aware of your efforts people in the rich neighborhoods have been using community defense app to warn the police about criminals. Stealing food mark guy. You sorta knew from a few past eviction. Defenses was shot dead outside of a safeway two nights back. We can't keep going on like this. Tom says and he tells you he's been reaching out to an old marine buddy of his who lives on a farm a couple of hours out of town. They've got food but they're grid is still fucked from the summer and half the small farms out there have lost so much production that they're on the edge of addiction themselves. We've electrician's we can get equipment. And we've got manpower people who will help harvest and stand up against the sheriff's department if there's an addiction you'd be lying if you said tom suggestion didn't scare you a little bit by bit. The daily grind of survival building resiliency in protecting your community has grown to feel more seditious. That seems a bit strong. But now you're talking about treating fighters for food to defend a farming town against the police. That's nuts fuck it. You tell tom let's get the others together and talk about it. Seems like a good idea to me in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight climate scientist james hansen testified to the senate and claimed for the first time that human influence on warning was discernible in separate from natural variability. James was not the first expert to warn about what we now call climate change but he was the first one to get up in front of the country and give a warning and such a clear and unequivocal way at a time when many of his fellows would him in haw about natural variability at the time there was tremendous debate fueled by donations from the fossil fuel industry and politicians eager for a culture war about whether or not hanson was a doomsayer or a profit. We now know that he was if anything too optimistic. The warming trends we have seen put us roughly thirty years ahead of his most dire predictions. It's worth digging into exactly how this happened. Part of the story you already know. Companies like exxon spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the last forty years funding think tanks and propaganda campaigns designed to sow doubt over the reality of climate change or global warming as a child growing up in the bible belt. Nearly everything i learned about climate change was filtered through this lynn's the picture painted by media pundits and bestselling authors. Like michael. crichton was that scientists were at worst corrupt chills pushing an environmentalist agenda and at best alarmists. Jenning up panic over minor fluctuations in climate paul. Erlich came up quite often. In this context in the late nineteen sixties he was an entomologist at stanford university who released a book called the population bomb. Its first sentence. Was the battle to feed. All of humanity is over. Paul predicted that in the nineteen seventies. hundreds of millions of people. Were going to starve to death due to overpopulation. And there was nothing anyone could do to prevent it. The population bomb sparked a global panic and an anti population growth movement that led to repressive laws around the world. It also didn't come true. Thanks in large. Part to the green revolution sparked by agronomist to norman. Borlaug work there was no mass. Starvation borlaug has been rightfully lauded for creating a new hybrid seeds that vastly increased the amount of calories farmers in places like india. Were able to produce. His work is credited with saving. As many as a billion lives. I i learned about him on. Pin and teller's bullshit owned libertarian. Themed scienc- show that was popular in the early offs. For the same reason as south park both shows managed to be anti liberal without being right wing in the traditional sense for kids raised conservative but disillusioned with the republican party. Due to the iraq war these shows provided seemingly clever arguments for why both sides were dumb and the smartest thing to do was make fun of them. This is not a bad thing. Under all circumstances if reflexively dislike both the republican and democratic parties you will be right more often than you were wrong but in the early ought some prominent democrats most significantly. Al gore did try to warn people about climate. Change these folks were framed as alarmists like paul. Erlich penn and teller one of a number of popular voices that specifically used bore logs. Example to attack environmentalists.

Oh gee he's our friend brody stevens his actors about dying on stage work with me very funny guy and oh you told another funny story you said when you carl and mel brooks have been friends for years and one time during one of the visits to sid. Caesar you and mel were walking out. Oh yeah it was always All of his friends said you know wasn't you couldn't really communicate. It was in a wheelchair but we go all keep him company. So i think my wife and i were the only gentiles. They're leaving nelson. You seem to like the company of jews. Everybody will have to tell a joke. And i i would be doing. I would tell gentile the only guy now and you were. You were saying your brother jerry. Who now he. He did a show. That was one of those strange ish shows the car.

He i was telling y'all he has a funny bone. He's funny inside. He can't help but he doesn't need material he's just funny loved him on the van dyke show as the sleep walker. Yeah that was. Yeah yeah he was a real sleepwalk he was a kid he hit leaves the house and wander down almost got out of the army but he finally got over it. But i- anything. You mentioned the carl that happened in your life. He would make a script off the show based on two stories. And i heard one time you had to stop him. He was gonna leave the house naked sleep. He had my dad's golf club on his shoulder. Start i said. We're going to play golf. But he got the place the he knew he was sleepwalking. And he could tell you he's he was clear across town one. It is pajamas. Knock on somebody's door and just said i'm sleepwalking. Could you call my parents to come and get me. Isn't that odd. That's why does your brain like that.

And she kind of at that time. katherine hepburn kind of a mid atlantic action. But boyd about three shows. She picked it up and was off to the races. Well all the more impressive. Because she'd never done comedy before really never had done comedy. And you you train yourself to duprat. Fold while i watched buster keaton through my entire childhood. Well all these guys. Bust your keaton stan loro charlie chaplin lot of good follower. You know who didn't know how to fall always chevy chase. He heard himself a lot here. Chevy number tucked a road right. He would just throw himself and for you saw. I mean you knew cert- they were certain things you had to do right to do a brand. Yeah i would practice in the backyard. That's why carl let me do all the physical stuff i wanted. He would just say five minutes here would be now. Didn't you call saturday night live. I think someone said you call to warn them to tell someone that champing about chevy. Yes i don't think. I ever call. But i did try to get in touch with him and he did. He hurt himself by his. He's got a bad back to this day. He does general when he would fall off ladders. He'd fall down stairs. Yes roll down speaker. That tim conway oh yes. He did.

Fake done okay. So are you equipped to do anything in the business. That's right my heart in my mouth. I go for a job. They can you do it you say. Of course i can do it.

Gil i want to ask dick about that painting behind him of buster keaton. Is that a painting. I'm looking at idea. There's a buster. Keaton and a stan. Lor and stan laurel the a friend of mine painted. I had a little a polaroid of stand sitting backstage in birmingham england. We and all he. What on tour there and friend of mine took it and made that great painting you know. I have the the blow bow tied to stanley me. I was going to get the derby and derby disappeared after the funeral. We haven't seen since somebody's got it. Now tell us the story about how you got in touch with stan laurel. I was looking up a phone number one day and i just came across. It said stan. Laurel that i can't be and i call them up and it was seen our show and i went to visit him last sunday and a win over there a lot and you know a lot of comedians made that pilgrimage to his house. Danny kaye jerry. Lewis all of us. When and the talker. Stan wonderful i think you said to him That you admitted you stole the lot from him. I said that on the phone. Yeah i said you. I still a lot of your said. Yes i know imitations the sensors now david guard. Did he ever give you any kind of advice. Is far as comedy and performing. No he didn't ask him a million questions you know at one point on the dick van dyke show. We did Lauren hardy sketch. And i asked him to come down and you'll be technical advisor and he had a slight stroke which nobody noticed but he wouldn't come down so after the show was on there. I call them. So what did you think. He gave me like. Forty five minutes of notes. Oh gee now you're telling me. He had covering of paper clips he. He had taken the heels off his shoes to give him that stance in that walk and a whole onto things that he coulda told me before the show. And how did he. You know you always hear about these teams like abbott and costello martin and lewis. Who sounded like they hated each. How did he and ali get along a harley absolutely great. He thought he was the funniest man he had ever seen he. They got a long way standard all the writing. All the directing and ali like to play golf and he liked to be out by four so whatever they stand one would do that slow. Burn with a camera. You know them. He waited until then and told them. You can't play golf for awhile. And then they all the clothes but it was really pissed. Yeah that's like real method acting. Or yes he got an you know he's still had a little portable typewriter. You sat and wrote sketches for he and ali every day. He had boxes full of sketches. He wrote for for snl. I said oh but nobody ever found them. What i love to have those all the third guest. We've had dick that that. Look stan laurel up in the phone book. Tomlin at rice tom. Leopold is a comedy writer that we had on the show and your friend chuck mccann. I think looked stand up in the phone. Book chug mccann does the best stan laurel impression of anybody. Yeah volume in and it also does only. Yeah yeah yeah. I mean i think you're i don't know guess maybe five or six. Who knew buster keaton. Yes i got to meet. But he lived out in thousand oaks in a like a quarter of an acre. Oh he was very shy very shy.

He's also a member of the television hall of fame and his been recognized as a disney legend. I'm so excited to be with here. I may pee on myself please. Welcome dick van. Dyke impressed with what a resume. Now now i had some stuff prepared to ask you but then we started. We got into a conversation and you are friends with the actor and comedian. Orson bean yes. Now please please or you want for and i go back to the fifties when both of us were hanging around new york kind of out of work and we would go to the modern museum and down the basement. They ran silent films and we go to central park. Will we go to the central park zoo every day. Though as a chimp in there who had to weigh one hundred and fifty pounds a big old gray cham- who laid on a on a kind of a book up there smoking a big black cigar and masturbated. I mean he would have you had an audience he would do. I kind of envy them. We must have passed it on that. Jim but wasn't remember. We will every day every day with us being. Yeah just. I can't imagine anything. I'd rather walk every day brought. Here's my i. Couldn't i work with a champion of movie. Who was about the same size of very talented guy. Dinky so i'm champs that was the the robin crusoe movie dick. That's right. dinky was his name. He was weighed about one hundred and thirty pounds ten years old and remember like ten things in a row in a scene. He would remember everything he could play cards and if he went up and forgot his lines. You saw going. Who and p p. His pants dedicate actually so basically had more talented. Now you use told the story in your book keep moving. Yeah that years ago. I guess you doing chitty chitty bang bang. Maybe you hurt yourself emotionally. Yeah and then you went to a doctor and he gave you this horrible. that's right. He looked at my xrays. He said you know that you riddled with arthritis from head to foot. I didn't know it. i was forty. What was i forty two or three so. Apparently i had been all those years. But i didn't know it and that's what got me moving and i've still riddled with deb. The thing is i keep moving and keep stretching and tonight and i heard a you said in the doctor's office because you a hit with this shocking horrible. He said you're in five or seven years. You'll be at least on a walker if not wheelchair five or seven years and you said you got up and danced in his office you. That was fifty years ago. And i'm still dancing. Oh wow have to take you down. Yeah 'cause i mean all over the internet there is like this footage of you like tensing and clothing stores my my wife dot grab sears and roebuck ralph. Smart wherever they're playing. It looks like it's special effects the way you dance now. How how did you start out in show business. I was doing what they call karaoke here. Now we were a record act. There were all over los angeles. Nineteen forty seven. My buddy and i drove out here. And there's no chevy had a boxer seventy eight records and we played clubs all over town. Was this the mary the the merry mutes. Yeah mary that was what her name. Yeah yeah we. We had quite a following around town. It was a very popular thing to jerry lewis started. Oh yeah jerry pantomime. Yeah and that's how i got show. It was going to be a like we were going to go home and do something serious but one thing led to another. I never got into the business. Thank god and then you've got further into show business after you were in the army. Yeah a kind of cowardice is if i was in pilot training and the war was almost over so they've just cancelled the pilot training program and the hold us. All in some of you will be overseas as tail gunners on twenty five the rest of you will be assigned according to your abilities and i went right into don singing dance and i got special services saved my life go ahead. Oh no you never were. Ever had formal training know nothing. I tell kids. I was in my thirties before. I got a job singing and dancing and my god. I loved it. If i'd had any sense then i would have well. I better study dancing and takes him. I didn't do anything. I just did it for the fun of it and i never worked on it. That's not a good way to do it. Although i watching you sing and dance like an untrained singer and dancer it's kind of like like jimmy durante. Jimmy durante by no means is a great singer. But you love listening to. That's right. yeah and you're like one of those people like you know maybe there are better dancers and singers. But when you watch you you know it's it's a guy having a great time it looks esi. That's the secret. If i'm having fun if fairly entertaining if i'm not i stink if i if i don't think it's funny. I can't make it funny if it's not funny.

"Taking one week off just a week for the fourth of july holiday after all this is a nostalgia show and summer reruns or something. We all grew up with so but we are running a very very special encore presentation this week. And that's a show from way back in two thousand sixteen which was kind of a turning point. Show certainly a turning point booking. We've talked a lot about how the show was how it began as a large really for gilbert and for me at. We did the early shows at his kitchen table. Mostly phone interviews. We had no idea what we were doing. Of course but when we booked this guest which was a dream booking it suddenly became apparent to us what we had on our hands and that was a an oral history of show business in the twentieth century. That guest was the legendary dick van dyke and with dick being recently honored just a few weeks ago by the kennedy center. We thought this was the perfect time to revisit this classic episode so i also have to head. I don't think i've ever seen gilbert more excited about meeting guests. He was actually starstruck which he admits. Gilbert was at dick's house in la. I was on the skype back in new york. Luckily for me. I had met dick before. And the guy is a total charmer. So we will thank dick's wife arlene. Who helped make this show possible as well as our friends. Scott and lisa land who also played a role in it. And we'll thank dick himself. Who is ninety five and going strong. Bless his heart. So enjoy.
Learning Machines 101
How to Guarantee Your Batch Learning Algorithm Converges
"Most machine learning algorithms including unsupervised supervised and reinforcement learning algorithms work by perturbing the parameters of learning machine based upon information in the set of training. Data the magnitude of this perturbation governs the rate of learning and is typically specified by number which is called the step size or learning rate. The particular pattern of perturbations called the search direction. After each such perturbation to the parameters we obtain a revised set parameters values which we will call parameter estimates. Ideally we would like to algorithm to generate a sequence of parameter estimates which would converse to some parameter values in order to minimize the learning machines prediction. Our note that if the learning rate is too slow that is we just changed the parameter values of the learning machine just by a very small amount at each learning trial it takes forever to learn however if we try to increase the speed of learning by making large changes to the parameter values using large learning rate then a large change to the parameter values might damage the learning machines knowledge of its environment. Thus the first question is how do we choose a learning rate which is not too slow and not too fast in addition we need to some constraints on the search direction. Basically we want the pattern perturbations to be designed at each duration of the learning algorithm. So that the prediction error of learning machine becomes progressively smaller. The method of grading descent provides one. Answer which is to choose the pattern of perturbations so that it is proportional to the negative derivative of the prediction error evaluated at the current parameter values. This approach identifies the pattern of perturbations which decreases the prediction. Error most rapidly in the late nineteen sixties philip wolf zoot dyke and other researchers developed simple mathematical constraints. Which would ensure that batch learning algorithms of the type typically encountered in modern unsupervised supervised and reinforcement machine learning algorithms would generate sequences of parameter estimates which would convert to some desired solution.

Inside Frick Madison in New York
"Now on the eighteenth of march. The frick collection will launch frick madison. It's temporary new home on madison avenue in new york until now the collection of our master paintings and sculptures and decorative arts as in the gilded age mansion on central park bequeath to the public. By the industrialist henry clay frick when he died in one thousand nine hundred nineteen and it's more than doubled in size since then mentioned is now closed for renovation and expansion to accommodate collection and special exhibitions so the collection has moved a few blocks but in tune entirely different.

The home of the met bria so had to bellini and titian van. Dyke rembrandt mir fragonard gainsbourg. Look in these alien surroundings. I spoke to the deputy director and chief curator xavier salomon. Who's overseeing the concept and installation to find out xavier. I wonder if you could cast your mind back to moment the e. I knew you were going to get the boy a building. Full the frick collection. Tell us what he felt at that moment. It was a combination of relief and absolute terror. I think You know relief because you know the plan was to really put the entire collection in storage be closed for a couple of years while we were renovating the building at the frick and then reopened so the idea that we had a place where we could display. The arts was a huge sense of relief and we had talked to a number of museums about getting a few rooms or a floor. And so did they have having an entire building. We could move. The offices and the entire election was absolutely exciting but terrifying. Because you know. Imagine moving the wallace collection to barbican. Oh the jack ready to this on pompidou. I mean it's just the idea of taking something out of its natural context. Let's say as we as we see it and bring it into something that's totally alien so as soon as we made that decision. That was a lot of thinking and a lot of backwards info about what to do with the building. Did you try out in your mind and on paper all sorts of different alternatives in other words. That wasn't a just a preconceived idea. We're going to do it in the way that you've ended up doing it now. Absolutely and the first phase was a lot of thinking a lot of backwards and forwards on various ideas. You know you have a blank canvas and the bank canvas is exciting but at the same time it's also terrifying because you have so many ways you could go and i still think there are other solutions. We could've used. I mean what we did is by no means the only the only option And i'm sure you know people will like it. People will criticize it. People will think it could have been done a different way but out of all the choices together with my team we filled. This was the most logical one for us and the one we wanted to pursue the one. We thought was most interesting but we definitely did play with all sorts of options on at the beginning. We didn't really exclude anything. I mean we started with even the idea of recreating the rooms in a building. The broil yet so just sort of replicating the rooms of the spirit of the rooms and then of course. We went in the opposite direction. And that's sort of why we got to

Dynamic swiftly and those conversations were incredibly frustrating because that would be a win in the room but it would be a lack of action to follow them So as a result of that we kept on having lots of conversations with barre barre slow progress but what happens in the summer it the game to store to reflect an actually as a community. We'll stood together and said no this is this is not going to continue anymore We cannot sell people treated this way. And we're not going to have this going to stand for. I think the fact that we're ruled on lockdown at the time meant that people were very very focused on this issue and as a result of that It feels like with with moving forward in a in a much more positive direction. in terms of the actions. And i'm you know privy to With the chief executives of lee seung susceptible associations etc and it lonely be judged on the actions. Of course bofill am. I do say this with some kind of kool shen because of twenty years of working on this. But i feel like we're in a place where we can get some real progress made leon as as transformative as twenty twenty has been i. I wanna talk a little bit about the start of couponing of the blacklist. What was you spock. And why kind of given the social challenges of the The last two years you felt the need to do that email as as as you already mentioned it was in and i'm sure you recognize would have been in such a frustrating atmosphere to not. Yeah i mean th th the black this was was born out of you know wanting to do something when type response. I had control over so looking for the kick out. Racism out full. It was a campaign was fantastic. Transitioning into a journalist with the bbc where it was working as a presents when report was great for me as an individual also had freedom to kind of put some actions in place. So i could control and drive myself alongside with my community. So i was as a campaigner meetings with various black people but black people that my friends and family from the black community would never know so when they're talking to me about How did you get get a job in football. And leon how why. Why do we never see any black representation. I said well the dead as many but they are there. So i thought well how do we shine a light on these people to celebrate contribution but also show the next generation of young black men and women. Listen you wanna be a lawyer in football. You can do it because this person has done it. And they're working at this. You want to be working in a major department. You wanna be a doctor. You wanna do all these kinds of jobs. You can't do it because these people have come before you. They all the pioneers that we should be celebrating in a similar way to how we celebrate a pioneering back players in every single position. We should celebrate these people as a way of opening the due to the next generation. Now of course that only works if that comes together with opportunity. Because i can go into community show about look you gamble Look here baltimat- live people arrive adult. It doesn't open Then they'll just turn around and disappearance of industries and just kind of have a relationship with football They will you on the tv or go to gags. So that's the bit. I think we need to work on you. Know in terms of where are the opportunities you know how much what the game is doing to attract retain and develop people bring a different diversity to the game and also not to see as as a charitable act.
Can Liverpool Snap Their Slump?
"Liverpool coming off a result midweek in the champions league thought when we focus on their league form not so great. They've lost three straight for merely outscored eight to two in those matches. Stevie the league form not good but can we throw it out the window based on what you saw. Mid week. Leipzig to be honest. I'm gonna base on scene from evan. Rather than what. I've seen from liverpool. I think we know liverpool. Golden played good football. Hopefully they're going to create. The question is what we take chances. And kinda and that's been their mantra. I think this is over. Evan up until i go a bed the smaller and looked and looked to see what had been said for months. You'll autobahn and use a kind of changed my opinion because i was very comfortable when i went to bed. Before the fact that culvert loons black. You've got allenbach. You got hamas who. I think we'll play as well. So they've kind of a as well as liverpool getting a little bit of a kick from winning against light shake evans going to get a little spot as well for most three at the same time. I don't think is going to be an awful thing. Liverpool will take it a business. You mentioned what carlo ancelotti said. You're in club downplayed this earlier but the reverse fixture of this is where virgil van. Dyke got hurt. We'll liverpool's players be thinking about that. Is that at all a factor in this absolutely not liverpool of other things to worry about right now with those vendettas. And when you stop doing that that affects your game when you start worrying about getting a kick it somebody or gone around and tried to get one on the that's going to affect you as you said liverpool too many other problems where they can. They can do things so i i don't think will have any whatsoever correct. Speaking those other liverpool problems basically been a coin flip over the last couple of months which liverpool we get and it's not really between good and bad. it's between feast and famine and look. There's a clear fight for the top four here between a few teams what one of which up until a couple of games ago look it might be able to make still be but clearly live for sure. I'm not going to catch. Set has been questioned whether anybody will catch them but settling from where pearl are so. There's a clear fight for the top. Four and i think they'll be buoyed by their performance and mid week but i'm with stevia. Initially islanders probably going combat but he's lacking much shoppers. Rodriguez is a talent. But he's not particularly away from home. A place like lever put and going to get the ball here because everton do that home in a way. They often the lawyers for as what liver poke can do with an ev. You know the such a hard team to read it. Belet lasted in a sense. Have lost some crazy games as she are still up there. Everyone had i think the three games in hand up until a week or ten days ago and then they lost home to fill them the loss home to set these kind of expected. The hong end then brushed aside. But i could see lever. Pull getting a result here purely going to dominate the game. And i think eventually it will break down. Of course they're gonna watch learn these pace and behind running the johnson. That's a weak point for liverpool at the moment. But i just feel with us. Top four limited as real. Fight that lever pill get the job done here and could run together to get themselves in their shock. Everton haven't beaten liverpool since two thousand ten have one at anfield since one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. This feels like as good a chance chances. They're going to get ride. No all records falling as far as liverpool is concerned in particular over recent weeks. That format downfield. Now i'm different from the voice. I'm sitting around the fence but leaning everton. I just feel as good. A result was against rb leipzig. Maybe a little bit expected especially given i felt. I thought i'd be like coming into this. A little bit light up front and maybe not threatening liverpool anywhere near as much as you would thought but with covid louis coming back. In particular that make centre-half paramount liverpool will be relying on on henderson. I just feel about their goals for forever time here and as a see i'm sitting on the inside but leading everton i just don't see a liverpool win.
Dutch court orders government to scrap coronavirus curfew
"Dutch courts, ordering the government to lift a nationwide coronavirus curfew and to do so immediately. The government implemented the curfew based on a little, which states that the Cabinet can introduce rules in an emergency without consulting parliament and the Senate. But according to the court, the curfew was brought in in response to something that didn't constitute an emergency. Like for example, if a dyke was breached. On the evidence for this finding was that the 9 P.m. curfew was discussed before it was introduced, so the court rules it didn't meet the necessary legal criteria on therefore must be scrapped with immediate effect.

Transformations: Three 'Coming Outs' with Max Appenroth
"It could be interesting to tell you about my life with three coming out. That i had so far his like offended. People look at me when i tell them like. Yeah what three coming out like. What's going on with you. And i like to tell the story about my mom and my wedding day like Married to a wonderful man and on my wedding day my mom said to one of my friends like there's nothing that can shock her anymore because like after having dealt with three coming out of her child there is nothing you could throw her off the wrecks anymore than i think i would just like to start a little bit chronologically because like when i was thirteen i came out as lesbian like to delegate about myself i was female assigned at birth and lifts for twenty something years an identity as a woman or at least i thought i was that because when i was younger being seen as female like it didn't work for me to didn't work with boys like i was interested in them played with them but like in everything else goes beyond players. I that's something that's like something something's wrong. Something's off. And i thought okay. If i'm not into poison i must be a lesbian. And they. This is what. I what i told my parents when i was thirteen. And my mom first reaction was a bit weird like she wanted to sue my first girlfriend because she was like nineteen. Which was like this is like fooling fooling around with a minor loud. I was it was it was a reaction then of course like distinctive like i would never have grandchildren but anyway she overcame that and accepted me and they accepted me for. I am because my dad. He was really cool. It was like yeah i understand. Why like women so sorry so it was actually that was. That was what i thought. Who i am and i have wonderful relationships with women in my teens and my early early twenties and but then there was something that can all along the way like time that i was dead. I felt like i was searching for something if restless all the time and i was always really hyperactive and just like not knowing what was going on because of couldn't sell it couldn't there was something there was something more and i remembered that when i was eighteen like i went to this women's festival and there was a drag king workshop in it was like okay. What's never heard of his. Like i'm just gonna go up just going to try it out and see what's going to happen. There was like these to renew gorgeous drag kings. That helped other people for the first time you know to to dress up like was always i was always like this bush type which dyke person and i was already looking a bit more what people stereotypically describe as masculine like short hair in jeans and like you know the just a typical typical butch dyke And so they helped as you know like to to put a beard on your phase night to to find your chest to get a flat chest with a Just bandages trying to to make us laugh. As possible and stuff like that. And i back then. I remember the moment when i walked into the bathroom and look at myself in the mirror just in complete shock that i was so shocked in that moment that i just immediately my immediate response was like washing everything off like washing washington beard of taking the advantages off because i was like so overwhelmed with a feeling in that in that particular moment from that moment on i really tried hard to pass as like a feminine appearing woman like i bought bras extended. I never will be four. Because i felt like i got something. I need to counter in a way and obviously that failed because back then i was still living in the southern part of germany. Like if people haven't heard like. I'm not a native english speaker. I live in germany at the moment based in berlin. When i finished school i moved to berlin immediately and started my life here and obviously because it's much more diverse city than than where i came from and where he grew up like a rapid the countryside in a very small town and all of sudden it was like all these possibilities like all these people that i met in amongst them was also trans guy and i was like i i was witted out by this idea but then eventually you know there was there was a time. I was in my early twenties when i quit smoking. And because of quitting smoking also changed my diet. Radically lost twenty kilos in like six months. Something like that night was a pretty big person. And because of that often i comb. My body has changed. My physique has changed. I got very slim and definitely less curves my boobs small and everything and i felt like there was a a strong change in my body happening. What also happened was that i dreamt multiple times that my friends were calling me. Max like in my dreams. My friends were calling me maximum. I woke up in the mornings. I was like what the fuck is going on like. What what what is happening. Like what is what is this thing you know and that was for me. Some sort of like a women comes from now. There was a day in june two thousand nine. That was at party like in the middle of the dance. Larger started crying in the fairmont. Came up to what what is going on. What's happening with what's wrong with you. Why you crying. Did someone do something that to just like. I'm i'm not a woman in. This was the only thing that i that i brought out. And then she was like what do you mean. Like what are you and i'm like i don't know i just know i'm not a woman you know. And i started on the birth birth night of macs more or less and for me back then. It was really wade today. Describe myself as masculine. Someone masculine spectrum. But i'm not a man. This is something that is a concept that does that. i don't understand. I don't know who men are like this concept in society that would which also comes with a lot of stereotypes in a lot of expectations and things how people should be. I might look like someone that people would describe as a man like. I have masculine the parents i can. I'm having a beer. Showed his body type. That stereotypically fits with people describe as man but like it doesn't it's not my
Analysis: Liverpool's Latest Loss
"Craig. It was just six minutes of madness. Wasn't it yeah and sort of madness. I think exemplifies season. Yes they are of the title race. Those maybe not be but they are fighting donald for the top four. I mean a couple of teams that can go within a point of them with the game and honduras botham three points behind them with thank three games in hans. They've got a real gunfight for the champions league places next year the injuries of taken toll the were way to open nicotrol. The game from most parts play some nice stuff again and scored a wonderful goal. But they've been so open at the bark and vowed a couple of opportunities in the falstaff and when the opportunity came along and the second half of course another calamity the buck. I don't think i could believe what you see it on the sidelines. But that's the reality of it. That's the have claimed. Playoff possession bring yang suzanne. And as i say after a fantastic couple years. They're fighting as shop for frank. How do you explain what happened in that second half once. Alas scored brilliant assists from amino. You thought this is good for liverpool. They should go on to win this game and then just well. It's food war. We would say. But i i i wonder if one vandyke would have been the central defense it would have been the same story and maybe the conclusion of what happened the all season long for liverpool that they lost too many main players To make sure that it could compete with the others. Nothing to do with scott back. I think i did the job. But at least on who has been absolutely perfect for liverpool add to dreadful games And cost kind of six points to two to liverpool and six very important points. he cannot football with. Sometimes you don't know what's going on you know. Even if you have very experienced players the case of anderson's than i do and some others could be enough to to win a game away from home again. The dominated putting sixty their mind and the lost game so stupidly. I will say that there is nothing else to say but while let's see next season because there's nothing to expect from the from neva put until the end of the season. I think as mentioned again another mistake from allison of course after those two big mistakes and managed to city match as well from coach's perspective. How do you deal with that. what. I'm sure that you klopp kind of sits down has a maybe a couple of coffee with him or or maybe even a beer and talk through those mistakes and that just normal is a is a human being there will be moments where you make mistakes and and obviously cost him because a malaga an because Obviously mentioned the city is is kind of just flying away on their way to the title and nobody can stop them and liverpool is going through some some difficult moments. But it's also understandable as frank said. You know it's all dykes injury. And then other injuries kind of got ended on and and for three years they played mos amazing football on the planet. They were flying. I always call him up. Two hundred mph and and it's it's it was so enjoyable or is still enjoyable to watch them but it's it's normal that it comes now a period of time where things don't work out the they're not gonna win the championship for sure not But there's still have to get into the champions league. I mean you've got to give leicester a huge compliment for the season that they play So far but but when things like that happen. Individual mistakes happen especially a goalkeeper. You just need to to be with him. You gotta gave him all the support in the world and and Have a talk with him and and make sure that he kind of refocuses and and put it out of his mind because it it always. The next game is in a few days again
