Harry Potter RPG Hogwarts Legacy Will Reportedly Allow for Transgender Characters
"The new harry potter game is going to allow trans characters. The next harry potter video game will allow players to customize their character's voice body type and gender placement for the school dormitories taking strive. Towards inclusivity controversies stemming from comments by series creator. Jk rowling that were seen as transphobic. Hogwarts legacy is scheduled for twenty twenty two. I'm sorry is scheduled for eight. Twenty twenty two release from publisher one interactive entertainment inc. and developer avalanche software. When players started the game will be able to create a character. That has a masculine feminine voice. No matter what their body looks like. According to people familiar with the game's development the people requested anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak to the press players will then get to select one of two options which or wizard that will determine the dorm they get placed in at the magic of hogwarts and how they are addressed by other characters in the game although this level of customization has grown more common in video games in his no longer unusual. It's no worthy for hogwarts legacy last summer rowling made several comments that were widely viewed as demeaning towards trans transgender people and denounced by many including harry potter film stars daniel radcliffe and emma watson. The comments also rattled some people working on the game. Bloomberg reported as a result some members of the hogwarts legacy development team have fought to make the game as inclusive as possible pushing for the character customisation and even a transgender character to be added. There was resistance from management. At first the people familiar with the project said but currently the character customisation is included in the game. A wonder whether spokesperson declined to comment last month. Hogwarts legacy faced more controversy after gaming journalist liam robertson revealed that tony leave it.

Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys. Let me let me let me get this up. Just we appreciate that. Yeah i mean i. i'm with you nick. Everyday is a fresh new hell when it comes to reading out some model numbers but what is not is shouting out our patrons at our master and grandmaster levels. Today they include christmas merton james and digression daniels and of course landon peralta back and illustrating the show. What have you drawn for us today. Len well you know. I'm really excited. Say that we've have the first image of the ample car the car. Which i'm that's what i'm calling it. I'm sure they're gonna take my advice. Coming around twenty twenty seven ish or so maybe You know you may. If you're a fan of richard scary busy world a you may be very familiar with the look of of the apple. Ii car I think it'll be a big hit with with fans of people who have kids So check it out. this is called meet. I car And this is available right now. My patriot on which by the way has to new levels.

Machine Learning Lifecycle 2021 Conference Preview
"In today's episode though we wanted to highlight our upcoming machine learning life cycle event. That's taking place. January twenty sixth through twenty eight. Twenty twenty one. I know that some of our podcast listeners signed up for our data for a conference that took place in september of twenty twenty and that was a really awesome event. we had hundreds of sessions. And you know lots of live sessions. Many more on demand with some incredible speakers at that event so just like with our data for a icon machine. Learning life cycle event is going to have that as well. We're going to have incredible. Keynotes incredible presenters and sessions as well really focused on that whole learning life cycle including m l. operations building models model management. So we'll have key five. He is for our sessions and our content for the upcoming machine learning life cycle event. If you like to check out that event we encourage you to go to life cycle. Comp dot com so m. l. life cycle co nf dot com. You can sign up as always. Our events are free to attend but so we wanted to spend you know a little bit of time going into the key. Main areas of focus for the sessions. And then some highlight. Some of the presenters sessions as well so the first area of focus is going to be on machine learning model development sessions in this will include and be focused on building and developing models so for supervised learning unsupervised learning reinforcement learning and then also across all different kinds of algorithms. So we talk about the three different types of learning and a lot of our podcast but just to go over that supervised learning through example unsupervised is learning through discovery and then reinforcement learning is learning through trial and error so that that area is going to focus really on model development for for that That all of that stuff. The next area of focus is going to be the machine. Learning model management so sessions in this category will focus on how companies should go about managing their models once. They're actually in production version eating life cycle management and then also aspects of that human side of management as. Well you know we don't want to forget at the end of the day. There are humans that are overseeing and managing this. So let's not forget about that aspect as well related to this idea of emo model management is this emerging space called ops mo operations which does overlap a bit and he talks about dealing with model life cycle in terms of The version being an iteration of models. And that's our of stuff but mls also keep an eye on the model as it's in production so things like model drift and data drift so these sessions on mo ops. I talk about what. Emma lops is how it relates to a related area which is taking a development code in the operational aspects of managing the development life cycle. There's a lot of things in common with that. There's a lot of different things though. Dealing with data drift a model drift and aspects of modernisation and models security and all sorts of things. So people definitely have sessions on. Emily ops quite a few and some emerging technology vendors that are expanding in the space. You're gonna wanna hear from them. Also we're to be looking at model governance so machine learning model governance. This is really focused on aspects of the the management of models in terms of access and control and decision making and who gets access to the various models and maybe differences in version in terms of. Maybe wanna keep multiple versions of a model around for different purposes. Maybe models trained in different data sets for different things you know. How do you handle. That can become very complicated. And you have to. Of course deal security and privacy and all these sorts of aspects. We're gonna be talking about that in the nfl model governance aspects. And of course we have lots of other sessions focused on adoption and development and management of machine learning models across the life cycle from people across the board who have been implemented on implementing machine learning. So just like our events we've have in the past We have three tracks. Are we have a track. That's focused on the technology side. So you can learn about how to do things and get insights on the from a from a technology perspective. We also have an industry track which is really focused on the industry applications. How are different industries applying these technologies. What are their use cases. What are the some of their lessons. Learned there's also some panels we might have from people. We do have actually throw people in different industries who are share around a similar topic and then of course we have large government and public sector contingency because governments around. The world are making use of machine learning for a lot of things. We're dealing with on our day to day basis of course dealing with things like pandemic and public health but still many other aspects of our life because the government's you know facing the same remote world that we are an ai machine learning Forms apart so we have incredible speakers and sessions and we'll we'll highlight a few of them right here in this podcast right so we have some great keynotes that we wanted to talk about. We have harrison smith. Who's the director of enterprise digitisation at the internal revenue. Service the irs. He's going to be talking about from digitisation to ai. How technology is transforming the government and in particular the irs. I know that many government agencies especially in twenty twenty digitisation and digitalization has been a big focus for that because as we shift from in person to remote work they've needed to really ramp up quickly a lot of their processes to make sure that people are able to stay functioning in their roles. So that's going to be a really incredible keynote. We also have maria wrote. Who's the deputy federal chief information officer from the office of management and budget ownby. She's going to be delivering a keynote as well about Ai in the government. We're also going to have tim persons whose chief scientists in managing director of the science technology assessment analytics team at the. Us government accountability office gao. He's going to be delivering a keynote about planning an agile government with artificial intelligence

Chadwick Boseman's 'Black Panther' character T'Challa 'will not' be recast, Marvel exec says
"On the black panther front july eighth twenty twenty two black panther to it was confirmed that they will not be recasting the role of to shala that they are. They are not going to do that. the word from kevin is that the movie will instead center on the world of kinda and the rich characters introduced in the first film. That is the official tweet from disney. So we've been wondering for a little while what what does that future look like. We have a little bit more of an answer today. Yeah you know that one. I'm it's tough to talk about that movie. It's tough to talk about a lot of reasons what's going to be happening from. Mommy did not speculate too. I'm still. I'm excited to see what that move is going to bring it to return to that. World is what i'll say. Yeah yeah. I'm good to leave it there as well

"Okay that's a six hundred dollar unit and it has four Mike Breeze it. Whereas, for instance, my channel Strip and of course, I splurged and bought something really awesome. But I bought a channel Strip it's a, it's a hardware channel strip. It's the NIEVE PORTICO to and. It has one Mike Brey. It's one channel and this unit costs more than three thousand dollars. So. Guess what the Mike Preempt in my newport to is way better than a mic pre in the road kester pro. For instance, I'm just saying for instance. Even the folk even we were talking about the focus right scarlet series, right? My Channel. Strip is way better than that because it's just a very, very high quality Mike Preempt and paid for that right and I'm gonNA use it for the rest of my life. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA sound great for the rest of my life. Right. So that's what I chose to do but anyway, I'm just giving. Details and a description of of how Mike pre-empts can be different quality. So anyway, I thought that would. I. Thought that was good to mention. The next daily goody is the Zum. Zee D M One. Dynamic microphone right I posted this on August seventh and it said that this thing was going to be available in mid September of two, thousand twenty. And it's the of October and I checked it's still not available. So. Anyway this zoom, they made a dynamic microphone. Announced everybody was going Goo Goo Gaga over this thing nowadays, of course, recording this. On October Twenty Eighth Twenty twenty, it's going to be published tomorrow twenty nine. But now now everyone's talking about the. What is it the shore? MVP seven is it called the the the the new USB Mike from shore. That's kind of like the SM seven B but cheaper and also has USB. So anyway, new Mike's come out everyone goes Gaga and it's great. But okay. So this zoom Mike that I wrote about here it's not even out yet but anyway, I'll linked to it It's a large diaphragm dynamic I. Haven't heard it obviously because it hasn't come out yet but. I assume it'll be out soon. So Click through in the show notes if you WANNA learn more about that Mike. Next daily goody. Temporary sound treatment to muffle loud people next door..
"eighth twenty twenty" Discussed on The JRPG Report
"I've still got to download and go through all those. I'd like to make a little slide show for you guys, but that's GonNa take. Take a little bit. Word to put all that together it's quite a few One of the new features that there spouting off is what's called an auto battle function, and typically when you say the words auto battle that has quite a negative connotation to it. You kind of think of some mobile trash type games but this one sounds a little bit different and his court it's not the only thing that it's going to. have to offer returning features include the dark assembly and the seemingly endless item worlds So this isn't the typical run the mill auto function they say players will be able to assign characters, attacks, and other skills characters to use in auto battle. This means that you won't need to worry about your party potentially failing missions. When you are off that, you're busy yourselves. This does sound like it's a little bit. Of course there is also now a two times speed mode. So that should speed things up. It another feature is the play again, function this well out players to clear the same selected stage multiple times in a row. Of course, both these features will come in handy when you're trying to grind to that ninety nine million. Level Cap. That is still it's Kinda hard to read and comprehend. In in full They. Said, there's two new classes, the psychic and armored. Valkyrie. The psychic is adept at using cane gun type weapons while the armored Vaccari is great at dealing. With large groups of enemies the six to five destiny will release for the playstation Nintendo switch in Japan. On January Twenty Eighth Twenty Twenty One and summer twenty, twenty, one in the West. There is. Still with my youtube videos that I put up, there is a big big split in the fan base. Over this game I would say it's at least seventy, five percent negative versus twenty, five percent positive in reaction to the three d models for the characters. But. There's a bunch of other. Issues that people brought up like I said before I've not played this series. So I don't really understand when people talk specifics about this one. So I can't really comment on that but there is some very dedicated fans with some very. Elaborately and well defined problems with this game. One of the first ones that people kinda bring up is this is a financially challenged company. And it kind of looks like this one was on some sort of strouss shoestring budget. That is something that's been brought up more than a couple of times. fans are worried. This is going to be the last this guy, a game that they say now, this one sells well, then maybe that is a remedy it, but you just you just don't know and you know you'd like to think they have time to fix some of these problems. But in reality scene comes out in three months in Japan that's not allow time. They're certainly can't go back to the drawing board unless they decide to. Completely, scrap it altogether. There was some new characters that were announced as well..

"eighth twenty twenty" Discussed on The Rubin Report
"I'll buy it for let's say they charge nine, hundred, ninety, nine or something, and if five million people do that. And Costs Twenty Bucks we'll now they've got one hundred, million bucks now I don't know how much they intend on doing that five million people. By the way it would be very low number for people to see the movie because then you know the the problem with buying the movie is that if you go to a theater with a family, you know it's Twelve bucks a ticket. You got five people. You're at sixty bucks something like that. But now if you can do it at home, you've it's one time fee of nine, thousand, nine, hundred, nine, five people there. You can invite other people over. So they're going to have to figure out I mean feel like it's a little bit of a test of the economics. Testing out. Okay. Can we release big things at home? Can they actually work? How much money are we going to make? How much money we're GONNA lose but beyond that I mean just this idea it's like going to the movies. Is is one of the prime things where we get to be people with each other like we don't have a lot of things anymore because of the way we're trapped online where we can have like a communal experience with somebody i. mean you guys know I was very frustrated with the last series of Star Wars but going to the theater and being there with the people when they're you know laughing when they're crying when they're just whatever that emotion is. Forget Star Wars when you when you go to a movie that you have some sort of reaction being in a room with people when you feel that you feel the. Silence like we're losing all of those things and we need those communal spaces which you know yesterday I talked about the NBA ratings crashing and it's like we need those things to be able to go to a basketball game to be able to go to a movie theater to escape politics to realize that you're with other human beings to look at people and see that they can smile instead of wearing a mask on their face like we're losing something the good old days are basically January and something seems very wrong about that and we gotta figure it out anyway people that is the direct message for today October Eighth Twenty Twenty. I did all the man's SPLAINE and I can do but maybe I'll do a little. And later, we have girls coming over later tonight and I'm GonNa talk to them and treat them as equals and we'll see how it goes. I think it's going to be okay. I'm GONNA do the cooking actually. So there's your man's blamed for you. Anyway thanks for watching everybody and we'll be back on Tuesday..
"eighth twenty twenty" Discussed on The Rubin Report
"All right humans of the Internet. This is the Rubin Report Direct Message for October Eighth Twenty Twenty we're going to be doing vp debate reaction and reaction to the reaction, and then you can react to that We'll also be talking about how Donald Trump has now announced that he will not take part in the next debate because they just announced basically out of nowhere that they want this thing to be virtual. So this just I saw this this morning and I have some thoughts on that and I think he's run. SORTA kinda making the right move but there's definitely some pitfalls on that. And then third I want to talk about the movie industry, which is incomplete absolutely free fall and Regal movie theaters which I'm sure you guys have all been to regal movie theaters when I was growing up we would go to the Regal triplex They are closing like five hundred locations. It sounds temporarily for now, but they're they're furloughing forty thousand employees. The movie industry obviously is absolutely imploding like many industries and and it's a sad thing and now they've delayed some major movies we'll get into some of that stuff but obviously, we have to start by talking about the debate and the media reaction to it. So first off I just want to say to you get comfortable in your chair. If. You're watching this or if you're on a couch water, you're on. I. Want you to really make sure you're like Kinda like in it I do not GonNa fall because I'm GonNa be doing some man spleen and there's GonNa be some man splaine up in here because that apparently is a thing if you are a man and apparently you react to a woman in any way you are man splitting you are somehow misogynistic and by reacting to a woman, you are automatically man's planning that is a new thing I just like to say for the record. If you're a man and you use the phrase man's planning on ironically I'm fairly certain. You're a eunuch and somebody took your testicles and you should find that person and try to get your testicles back and then I don't know who you go to to get your testicles reattached urologists or testicle expert because no man's blaming they're all saying this these pundits and blue check twitter. Ati. People. They're all saying man's blading as if it's a thing as if it's a thing. So all right. We're going to go through a little bit of the debate reaction. Let me just for those of you. That didn't watch my whiskey late recap last night. Let me just say a couple of things I predicted that basically pence going to have to. Do is not fall out of his chair because he just needs to show everybody that he can steady the ship trump seventy four. If you got sick, he just had grown if something happened to him whatever it might be that he's there to just make everybody feel like, oh, the wheels aren't going to fall off this thing we ain't going over the cliff not only did he do that I? Think he actually did a better job at that and I will say also. that. It's not as if I don't have political disagreements with Mike Pence I absolutely have political disagreements with Mike Pence Mike Pence was to read my book don't burn this book. Mike Pence would come away thinking that we have some serious political disagreements, Mike Pence and I disagree on abortion I'm begrudgingly pro-choice. That women should have a right to choose for that first trimester and I go into my explanation on that in the book Mike Pence's is absolutely pro-life. That is a massive political difference that I have with the vice president. Mike Pence. As as I know, we'll certainly personally is not for gay marriage and I suspect he wishes that it was not the law of the land..
TSLA Stock Split Analysis
"Power here and today we were talking about some breaking news on Tesla's stock investor relations team in the after our session today announced the tussle redoing a five for one split on Tesla's stock in the after hours session right now as I'm recording tesla is trading up about six percents on the news after finishing the day down three percent the statement and full from Tesla reads quote Tesla Inc announced today that the board of. Directors has approved and declared a five or one split of Tesla common stock in the form of a stock dividend to make stock ownership more accessible to employees and investors each tackler of record on August, Twenty First Twenty twenty will receive dividend of four additional shares of common stock for each then held share to be distributed after close of trading on August twenty, eighth twenty, twenty trading will begin on a stock split adjusted basis on. August thirty, first twenty, twenty and quote. So if you're not familiar with the stock split, pretty simple concept basically for every share of Tesla that someone owns they will be granted for additional shares meaning they would then own five at the same time. The stock press will then be reduced to one fifth of the press that it is trading at at that time meaning there is no change to the valuation or the Market Cap. Of the company. So for Tesla, happen after the close of trading on Friday August twenty eighth and then on Monday, the trading will start at the new lower price with the additional share count factored in. So if Tesla Trading Fifteen, hundred dollars per share at the end of the day on that Friday new of one share on Monday, you'll have five shares each at three hundred dollars a piece I'm sure people have similar questions about. Contracts as well because this is a five for one split and not something a little bit weird like a three for two or something like that I'll options contracts will be adjusted in pretty much the exact same way. So if you had one contract for buying Tesla fifteen hundred dollars per share, for example, that will just become five contracts for buying Tesla at three hundred dollars per share say meth. So let's talk about the. Pros and cons of stock split. Obviously, there's no actual change to the company in terms of valuation. This is really just an accounting thing but the biggest pro is obviously that the stock price becomes more affordable to potentially new investors or even to investors that maybe just want to add one or two shares every month and can't afford to do that. If the stock price is about a thousand dollars over time, this benefit has become. Less significant with the advent of fractional share trading a lot of different brokerages are offering that now. So before you could about a fifth of a share of Tesla for three hundred dollars that's often presented as making stock split irrelevant. But that's not a perfect solution. They're voting rights issues with that. You don't have a right to vote if you only own a fifth of a share generally obviously, that's not gonNA, make a difference and. Some services do correct for that, but it is still a problem more importantly though not all brokerages offer fractional share trading especially internationally, which means by default there are some investors that don't have access to the number of shares that they would like to buy the logic and follows that if you do a stock, split your opening up the possible investment to more investors, that is what Tesla supplies as the reason here they say to. Make stock ownership more accessible to employees and investors. That's what stock split does. Even for those brokerages that do offer fractional share trading there are often limitations on those. For example, some don't let you do limit orders only allowing market orders for fractional shares. So I think that's the biggest one and there are knock on effects to that. If someone is able to by Tesla stock, probably more likely to follow a company more closely. And perhaps eventually become a customer whether that's something as simple as merchandise eventually vehicle and I think they're also much more likely to talk to their network about the company and about their products. So I think those secondary impacts are pretty important as well and can actually help with the fundamentals of the business. There is also some research that shows that stocks that undergo stock splits then up outperforming one study that tracked the performance of. One Thousand Two hundred seventy five companies that underwent a two for one stock split between nineteen seventy five and nineteen ninety found that those stocks outperformed the control group by eight percent in the first year and sixteen percent over three years a similar study from nineteen ninety to nineteen ninety-seven using companies that did a two for one three for one or four four one stock split found similar results eight percent over performance in one. Year and twelve percent over three years obviously though does not equal causation. It seems more likely to me at least that companies that have done well, and that project continued doing well in terms of the share price performance are more likely to do a stock split than those that have not but taking that a step further that means that a stock split is essentially a sign of competence essentially management believes that the share price is. Unlikely to fall significantly or there would be no incentive to do stock split, and perhaps they continue to believe that the stock price will rise creating more of an incentive to stock split companies don't want their share prices to get too low and certainly they don't want them to be lower than they IPO tat for example, for similarly psychological reasons it then just starts to look like your stock is actually underperformed. So if you. Do a stock, split your expressing confidence that that's not going to happen and I think that adds a nice little psychological benefit to the announcements of stock splits and probably plays a pretty big role in why we see stock prices jump on the days that stock splits are announced.
New Trump Campaign ad Looks Bad For Trump
"Donald Trump is in a lot of dead, so it's very unlikely that he actually outright owns anything, but he does love to own himself, and that's the case with the latest campaign ad you put out. Let's take a look. You have reached the nine one one police emergency line due to defunding of the police department. We're sorry, but no one is here to take your call. If you're calling to report a rape, please press one to report a murder press to to report a home invasion press three for all other crimes. Leave your name and number and someone will get back to. You are estimated. Wait. Time is currently five days goodbye. Now if that adds scares, you and you wouldn't WanNa live in the type of country that would have those types of scenes of. And Destruction! You should probably vote trump out of office because all of that footage happened under trump's watch. In fact, all the footage used in that ad was from March and I'll give you. Those details I'm sorry may of this year and I'll give you those details in just a moment, but also one of trump's campaign advisers Boris. Epstein also shared a similar video. NOT THAT AD itself. But in that video you see the violence and the destruction, and he says this would be Joe Biden's America. It's a very scary place except it's happening right now, and it's in trump's America. And I want you to remember what he said during came action. Because if you say wow, I, mean look. They're protesting. The saints that have happened recently police abuse. Yeah, well, trump had four years to fix it, and he didn't. He actually loves when police abuse African American citizens. Why after George Floyd? Floyd, but let's remember to protect the real victims here the confederate flag. And military bases named after confederate heroes so. Yeah he? There's a reason why those things are happening. Even the worst of most of them are overwhelmingly peaceful protests. Of the rioters and looters are because of Donald Trump's complete and utter indifference this issue, so that is trump's America but back. Then when he was accepting the nomination, he said the crime and violence that today our nation will soon. I mean very soon come to an end beginning on. January, twenty twenty seventeen safety will be restored. Saying. Let's let's go to those images and like some screen shots of the video that was used in that campaign ad, which again were from May of this year and we can just obviously. Rebut that ridiculous statement, so that's from Minneapolis. In May of twenty twenty twenty may twenty to be specific. It's an image from the night when a Minneapolis police precinct was burnt down. Okay, let's go to the next one. Another screen shot from trump's add This is a shot of liquor store that was set ablaze on the same night. Again this is in Minneapolis. May Twenty twenty-eighth Twenty twenty when the president of the United States is Donald Trump? And then let's go to one more. It's an image of a window being smashed at a bankruptcy court in Grand Rapids Michigan. And, it was taken. This photo is from May thirtieth twenty twenty so looks like he's by way. He's a criminal himself. I mean defrauded students with trump. University used his own charitable foundation, which had to be shut down because he was utilizing the funds from that charitable foundation to enrich himself. He has violated the emoluments clause of our Constitution over and over and over again he loves crime. He bathes in crime. But he he uses law and order as a dog whistle and a lot of ways. No no way since one hundred percent right and so the slogan is no justice, no peace and that's almost exactly what's happened during the trump era, there's no justice at all the real criminals. The top Roger Stone and all the others have been released from the jails. It's like a reverse Bain. Vicious release all the white collar criminals, and all the crooks of the. And all Donald Trump's friends Michael Milkin. Blagojevich Democrat doesn't matter nothing matters. Okay except Donald Trump's France so did and then at the bottom. Did any of US get justice? No, the police abuse continued, and and what Donald Trump has to offer us more violence and violence begets violence. So that's where we are today and I'm going to go back one more time. Do speech a twenty sixteen while he was accepting the GOP nomination, he said. Nobody knows the system better than me. Which is why I alone can fix it. Okay well. You've got four years to fix it and apparently only one who could do it. So why are you waiting for? The protests are larger. Also different issue violence is on the rise. While you're not fixing it. Are you holding back? Are you holding? America hostage until your second term, and then you will magically fixing who could believe such preposterous things? He obviously is in over. His head doesn't know what he's doing and everything is done has been counterproductive and led to more violence to. What we see in that ad, which is trump's America? Want, they mentioned rate there in the beginning punched out word to scare people even more. If you're reporting a rate, we will not be responding. Who are you kidding? The reason we're a have deep on the police. Responding, anyway, only thirty percent of rape cases across the country are ever solve by our incompetent police. We WanNA defunding partly because we want to build a better police department that actually solves cases.
Alone, Together - A Covid Nurse's Story
"March twenty second twenty twenty. My heart is broken on Friday night. My worst fears were realized as I watched. My beloved patient are Evan. Take his last breath on earth.

The Ministry of Health has prepared us with instructions on how to deal with disease covid nineteen patients. We are the first hospital in Israel to implement this protocol. Similar to casualties of biological warfare, our treatment of the body needs to be done in a way that will not endanger us. Because of this there can be no purification or Tahara process.

You survived the horrors of the Holocaust immigrated to Israel. Established DEMOC deficit family, and your extraordinary journey ends here in this new word. We hoped we would never have to open. The circumstances of your hospitalization did not allow for your loving family and caretaker to be by your side for us in them. This was heartbreaking from the outside monitored you as closely as we could. We were an off as we watch the other patients care for you, keep you company and help you. However they could. They did not want you to ever feel. Are Yet, I wanna ask you for forgiveness. I'm sorry for how we were required to handle your body. We did our best to preserve your dignity and respect you based on the circumstances I know that it was done to protect us. It was a tremendous food and honor to care for you.

It's been only two weeks since my first shift and Koetter the COVID, nineteen word, and in many ways feels like an eternity. As panic and uncertainty, keep escalating around the globe for me. Personally the pressure and anxiety are quickly building up and it's nothing short of overwhelming. In the span of two weeks, the number of patients in my unit has quadrupled and keeps growing the everyday experiences in the word taking an emotional toll on me. On Friday, a daughter of a critical patient walks into our operations headquarters. Since no family member can go inside the unit. She has come to say goodbye to her L. Father through the video intercom system. She asked me to hold her phone and record their interaction. As I watched her cry and talked her father through a screen I have to physically turn my head to hold back tears. This is heart wrenching to watch I cannot even begin to imagine what it's like for them. At six thirty PM with thirty minutes left until the end of May shift. I'm rushing to finish my last tasks inside the unit. At this point, the moderate patients have all congregated in the middle of the word to do Tabet. I soon realized it's the only permissible Mignon in Jerusalem right now people from all walks of life and across the religious spectrum are singing and rejoicing together as bring in. I! I'm blessed to be witnessing the scene of unity and. I. I already know this. Coming Week is going to present more challenges physically and emotionally, but I know I'm not alone. We're in this fight together. We're going to come out of this stronger and more united as a nation than ever before to stay strong instead home God bless.
The Skeptics Guide For Wearing Masks
"Roll come to this country. The Universe today is Wednesday July eighth twenty twenty, and this is your host. Steven Novella joining me this week or Bob Novella, everybody, Cara, Santa, Maria, howdy, and Jane, Novella Hey guys I've been. Bernstein is out this week. Is Neck deep in other people's taxes. Guys Do. You know what he's. He had like a weird like mid tax break which he's never had before. Pick about it right? Yeah I, think everybody did. Last night. So like screw this finishing this crap I hate it and also I think the thing. Is Nobody really knew what was going to happen, but a lot of people got hit super hard, which is why the tax deadline was pushed back so they're like I can't afford to pay my taxes right now, but maybe come July all be in better place financially. Unfortunately, a lot of people are even worse place financially now. There's just kind of kicking. The can down the road speaking of that Steve What are the latest numbers are not good. You know especially in the United States so worldwide. We've surpassed twelve million cases with over five hundred and fifty thousand deaths. In the U, s where over three million cases and Around, one hundred thirty thousand deaths, at least that number's always because probably more. And you know it's just in the US just exactly what we warned about. We're seeing the second hump in the first wave and the greatest number of new cases per day is happening right now. This is a greater surge than we had back in March and April, and this is what we talked about. What happens when we start to open up what happens if then cases start to surge again, what will be? Do you know people have lockdown fatigue? The economy's already taken a big hit from the first lockdown. Some states opened up too quickly. They didn't do it properly with enough testing and contact tracing. And now we're seeing this really bad second wave and the sad thing is. They're having to do it kind of haphazardly like they're the states where they said. Okay we want to reopen, so they never really fully lockdown or they did, but they only stayed lockdown for like two weeks, and then they were like okay bars. We got to reopen. We got to get the economy going. And now the cases are just bananas out of Control and so they're doing this like quick quick. Quick your mask back on, and it's kind of like it's haphazard. It's not clean. It doesn't feel as controlled. And I think that's where things really do. Fall through the cracks, and then, of course we have this whole. Political Anti Mask Movement. That does seem to correlate with some of the same states where we're seeing these spikes. We definitely see in California. I mean you know in more conservative districts, but there are sort of marbled in California, so I definitely hear it even in L. A., it's not as common but. Not that Far Away San Bernardino County's very close, and you see the people. Holding angry signs and it's just. Did you guys hear that they did? A study showed that if they mandated mask you have. Made it pretty much requirement? Everyone wearing masks in public that they could save forty five thousand lives over the course of I'm not sure what the course of the period the period of time would be I think like three or four months. Five thousand I mean if that number that was that was fairly solid number. Would what else would you need but like okay, then we're. We're doing this. You have to wear a mask in public period. Almost the Vietnam War right there. Yeah, no more was fifteen thousand so imagine we could save the same number of lives lost over ten years the Vietnam War just by wearing I think it's such a profound number that we're not even equipped intellectually to really understand that that much right like I don't know forty thousand people I can't picture forty five thousand people sitting in a room I don't know what that looks like. I look like a baseball football stadium. Wouldn't that be roughly? Park, speech larger than the student body of my Alma Mater and speaking of masks. Study this week very that people might be interested in, so they just compared different types of masks, and how well they work, and of course the ones that you think should work the best do right so the ninety nine masks supposed to stop ninety nine percent of the virus were the best followed by end ninety five of course block, Ninety five percent of the virus, and their tests show that those numbers roughly accurate. And then followed by surgical masks, so they were the next, so those are the ones that healthcare workers are using, and they do work the best for the homemade ones they said was the best so actually interestingly, using vacuum cleaner filters was the best like homemade option. Just make a little pocket in your mask. You put those filters in there, and you can replace them like if they get moisture used. And that was the best using any kind of a close. We've. tight-knit cotton was good. They said what did not work is wearing. A scarf doesn't really do much to the only a slightly better than no mascot, all or a t shirt like pulling a t shirt up over. Your face doesn't work very much at all either so stick with the. multi-player cotton, and if you put a filter
The 7 Remote Work Trends That Will Impact Your Business
"Welcome to another episode, of marketing, school I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today. We're GONNA. Talk about the seven remote work trends that will impact your business, so we're still in the thick of it five twenty eight. This is may twenty eighth twenty twenty, so there's there's been a lot of chatter about remote work, and we believe it's going to continue right like so eric and. And I? Believe with them opening up more more stuff were already seeing a trend of covid spreading more in resurging backup. Sadly so Moyo working is a huge trend yard seen companies like twitter. Saying you don't have to come back to work if you don't want to. Yeah, so I guess that's that's really the the first one right there. It's I think there's GonNa be a lot more. People can't twitter. People look at facebook's people saying like Oh. They're saying you don't need a comeback for the rest of the year. Whereas companies like Microsoft are kind of waiting and seeing what develops I think what's going to happen is some people are still going to have a semblance of an office because I was looking at a twitter poll the other day I I think actually heating, put it up. He jaw and couple of thousand people responded to it. Maybe it was somebody else, but it was basically saying. Saying look how many of you are would like to come back into office. How many would like to go purely remote? And how many of you want a hybrid? The vast majority of people picked that they wanted to go. Hybrid and I think hybrid is the motto of the future sure he can socially distance, and all that but I think coming to the office, maybe two or three days a week under the other days are remote i. think that's what's going to work and before turnover to uni all. The Israeli government or Israeli scientists came up with a smart model saying hey, why don't you try a four ten model meaning you come into the office four days a week virus six fourteen days to incubate so four days. You come into office the other ten days. You don't come back and then boom. You're back again like next next. Monday so I. I see that potentially being an option as well. That's. The other big trend that I see is people are moving towards different communication channels like. I know in our office. We used to have so many meetings. The amount of time people spend on meetings at one point was just so ridiculous. Start enforcing policies on how many people could be in meetings because we don't want people wasting time in meetings versus actually getting work done and when you look at this is what we found. Is that people using zoom more slack? Mormeck soft teams more, they're actually getting more efficient and people are learning how to get work done from their home. Same Time we've also found that some people aren't good at working remotely. Some people are amazing at it. Others aren't so with your business. You're going to have to figure out how to adapt and how to help people transition and teach them how to work remotely 'cause not everyone's used to. Yup and then this is number three. Number three cut into Neil's point. I would say. There is zoom fatigue or Google meet. Fatigue is very real right now so i. just mentioned like I think. The last time recorded this the week before maybe that week. I was camping out at twelve calls. They even know how it got to that point where Mike. Allen Rogers booked up, but at the very end of the day as just. It's straight up like depression and like I feel like it's Friday every time that happened so I. Actually see less zoom meetings happening so sometimes what I do now. Instead of doing zoom calls I say hey, let's just do a phone call, and then that way. You don't have to keep looking at the screen. The whole time goes. By the end of the day you're just you're the vegetable so I see I. See changes happening totally number four. Another big thing that you're going to have to start. Taking into account is hours. So what we're seeing is businesses normally would be open from eight to five or whatever the hours may be, we're seeing. People are starting to work more sporadic hours. They still may be getting the work done, but they may stay earlier. Finish later or start later and finish earlier and just be more efficient work less. Less hours in one day, but the next day they may end up working quite a bit more hours because they're also adapting to their family life with other people being in their homes, their kids or their kids having to do zoom school calls, so they had to be there for the kids and help them through that as well so I think one thing that your business has to learn how to adapt to. Is People not working eight hours consistent and working during random hours and time and as long as. As they get the work done, you shouldn't really complain much or have much base. You
Academy postpones 2021 Oscars, will announce new diversity rules
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown Twenty Years Matt Bellamy my usual Banter Buddy on the business and Matt the Ninety Third Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed from February twenty eighth to April twenty fifth for. Obvious reasons. The eligibility period for films which normally would end on December thirty first. It's been extended to February twenty eighth twenty twenty, one. Because of you know. These films have not had opportunity to play or necessarily get the kind of attention. They would normally get. That's the argument now. The Oscars has been pushed before in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, due to La Flooding, and then in sixty eight because of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King and again in one, thousand, nine, hundred, one, because of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan so I. Think it's fair to conclude that. When they pushed the Oscar ceremony something very very bad is happening as it is now, but this was necessary. However, if you're ABC, just from a business point of view, this is bad news. Also yeah I mean there's A. A couple ramifications here one is for ABC I mean this is their super bowl. They count on a ton of AD revenues about hundred forty hundred fifty million dollars in ad revenue last year that they can usually count on in February that is now pushed out of q one into cue to if the Oscars take place as planned which are that's a big question mark. Will we have big scale events with celebrities walking a red carpet even in April of next year? We don't know the second is the impact on the film released calendar because. Because assuming at some point that movies do comeback and we start to get movies released in theaters again these big year end movies that everybody sees every year and you know come out around Christmas time and get a lot of the awards attention and go on to win Oscars that window is now going to shift into the January February march window, which is going to change a lot of strategies for these film companies because you don't now have to crowd. You're movie into that year end corridor in order to make an impact with Oscar voters. Voters, you can give it a little bit more time and that February. March time period is usually a dumping ground where you don't put your best movies now. Maybe you're going to put your best movies there because you know, you can get Oscar attention as well as some box office. Yeah, and what's really still very unclear win theaters will open theaters, clinging to to July, as is as our Warner Brothers with Christopher Nolan's ten and a couple of Disney with Milan they push tenant two weeks i. don't really get how that solves anything but. It makes us so they're not I now Milan will be I will be the Guinea pig, so to speak and then Warner. Brothers we'll have tended after that, so they won't be the Guinea Pig the other thing that is. Speaking of Guinea Pigs. The academy is going to try to do require going forward diversity as a criterion for eligibility for Oscar and they haven't specified what that means I I would certainly not argue with the goal Hollywood has been very very stuck for a very long time in terms of diversity goals, but you know it's something where they have to be very careful. You can't just mandate something like that without really choosing how it works, you know and and again. I want to stress how I totally support that goal, but you're sort of a strange territory telling creative people you must do X. and we don't know what xs yet, but you know. This is something where I think. There's a swimming Zaidi that it will end up being like the most popular picture category that ultimately just sort of went away. This should work, but the question is how yeah! It's a big question because you know for years and years, the academy has always said that the diversity problem is not the academy's problem. It is Hollywood's problem, and it's just at the Oscars are reflection of what the industry is doing, so you shouldn't blame the academy for the diversity problems of Hollywood. This is a flip of that. They're saying we are taking this on. On as an organization and saying that you will not be able to be eligible for an Oscar unless you adhere to some basic diversity principles, and they have yet to articulate what those are, so they just WanNa. See what the logistics are going to

Why drug costs are top issue for South Carolina voters
"The twenty twenty race is barreling ahead South Carolina's primaries on Saturday Super Tuesday less than a week away. There are eight. Twenty twenty presidential democratic hopefuls remaining and each of them is angling for a way to stand out fast but the front runner has come to dominate this race and his signature policy has come to dominate the national discussion on Healthcare. Medicare for all Medicare for Medicare for all Medicare for all healthcare system that guarantees healthcare to all people in a cost effective way. Which is what Medicare for all is. That's Bernie Sanders. Of course the Democratic senator from Vermont Democratic Front runner and probably know policy proposal has marked this election more than Bernie Sanders Medicare for all after a strong victory in Nevada Bernie Sanders emphasis on this trademark. Issue appears to have paid off. Democratic candidates agree on expanding health care coverage they're divided on how to ensure everyone weather to ensure everyone and of course how to pay for it. All so how are their plans similar? How are they different? And how do they all compare to any plans that might be put forward by their eventual opponent? President Donald Trump. We've been talking to the candidates one by one part of our own ongoing series foresight twenty twenty. And now we're branching out foresight twenty twenty the issues. It's a series all about where the candidates stand on. What really matters most to you the voter and today it's healthcare more specifically Medicare for all. Here helps out ratchet up predominant correspondent for Kaiser Health News. She covers healthcare all across America. Thanks for being here. Thank you know Levy is here. He's a national health care reporter for the L. A. Times. No one great to see you. Nice to be here and Dan. Diamond is here health reporter for politico and host of politicos pulse. Check podcast. Dan. Great to see you as well. Thanks for having me a Russian up before. We break down each of the candidates policies with a lot to talk about. We'll get to a lot of the details on medicare for all in what the different candidates say they favor here. Can you talk about? How significant health care is for voters as we head in this into this election. What are voters say about? The importance of healthcare to them so healthcare is definitely the top if not one of the top issues for voters regardless of party affiliation so lowering prescription drug costs very very popular among the public That has been true for years. They've been telling Congress they telling presidential candidates. We need to do something about the rising cost of drugs Please basically begging a few other things. Also there's a lot of widespread support. I think that people want to see the candidates Flush out plans on say they'll resolve So rising surprise medical bills dealing with the OPIOID crisis protecting protections for pre existing medical conditions. These are all things that voters really WANNA see. The candidates Expand upon us. They run from the. I used to be a healthcare reporter a younger man. There was a time when I could have been on your side of the table for this discussion. Healthcare was always one of the top issues. Voter said I care about healthcare. They said that in surveys but there was never any evidence that they actually voted on it that when they went into the into the ballot box in and and pulled the curtain even though they told a pollster they care about it whether that's what was driving their vote. It happened in election after election. And I think there are certain extent that's still Still the case because healthcare does mean different things to different people as an issue. Rosina's correct that that Democrats and Republicans have identified it as a top concern but to what extent or voters making their decision to vote for candidate X or candidate. Why based on healthcare. Probably not that much instead. I think probably the way to look at the healthcare issue in the Democrat. Republican divide is is it a proxy for The way that they evaluate president trump the Democratic nominee? The one exception I would say is Medicare for all which I think is playing a greater role in Democratic primary voters making a decision if you like Medicare for all sanders is probably your guy now. Medicare for all. Let's talk about it. It has important interactions with the way that most of us get our insurance right which is through work. I I WANNA say one hundred sixty one hundred and seventy million Americans get their insurance through work. It is the most common way and we got this call in our voice mail inbox. I'M KIARA FROM DENVER. I would gladly take Medicare for all over my employer sponsored insurance. They currently pay ten thousand dollars annually. When you add up premiums deductibles out of pocket expenses and that does not include vision or dental expenses whereas Medicare for all would be rolled into our taxes it would actually offset the cost already paying and then it would also expand cover dental and vision. I also feel like it's a great way to take care of your entire community and your nation as a whole which will make us all healthier and happier and I feel like it's a great way to create more freedom in the workplace where people are less afraid of beating their job. Just keep their benefits and people would have more choice in the providers. They see because they wouldn't have to choose a provider just solely based on who accepts their insurance. So Dan what is Medicare for all people have heard about Medicare? They probably know what that is. It's the government program for folks over sixty five and disabled people. Medicare's extremely popular. What does it mean when we say Medicare for all I think it depends which candidate is saying Medicare for all what does it mean to Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders would articulate a vision of Medicare for all? That's very similar to the vision. The caller just shared a program. That is universal single. Payer every American would be on this plan. As opposed to employer plan it would cover things beyond traditional Medicare. So it's not strictly speaking the Medicare that my grandparents my parents might might know in love. It would also have new power to negotiate with the private sector to lower drug prices by putting government emphasis behind that and cut out the administrative overhead and bureaucracy that helps contribute to cost going up in America at the same time. That plan is dramatic and expensive and all the things that Republicans are poised to seize on and many Americans also say they're worried about too. So there's there's give and take with Medicare for all. It would be the big elephant in the room right. It would have the ability to go to medical providers hospitals drug companies and say we are the only game in town. You'RE GONNA drive those prices down but also we've heard cost estimates in the trillions because it is a massive government entitlement Bernie Sanders himself has referenced thirty trillion dollars over a decade in paying for Medicare for all his campaign sanders himself have come out with different proposals to defray that cost. But if you actually look at what the Sanders campaign has offered. It hasn't added up to more than about half of that thirty trillion dollars. Some would say that that doesn't matter the. Us pays for all kinds of things that aren't as positive as medicare for all. His supporters are point to the Iraq war and. Us didn't necessarily look for the pay. Fors before heading off on on that misadventure. But I do think that these are the issues that Congress will have to grapple with now Rochester other candidates talk about a public option or some of them talking about not Medicare for all but may be more people can buy into Medicare be part of Medicare. Even if you're not sixty five or public option means something else right. So the public option is the approach. That is Sort of being pursued by the more moderate wing if you will of the current Democratic presidential Field so Joe Biden p Buddha Judge Mike Bloomberg. They're all amy. Klobuchar are among the candidates. That are saying we would set up a government run insurance option that people could buy into essentially but a lot of the existing programs that currently provide health insurance to people. So job is coverage as you said. the Medicaid program Medicare those would continue to exist The public option the proponents of it. Want to push that as a way to say look. We don't WanNa rip up the whole system. We don't need to start from scratch. Here's a way to build on what we have and not cause as much disruption as Medicare for all would inevitably Pursue Dan avoiding disruption is great but it also means you don't insure as many people that's the trade off that supporters of Bernie Sanders and to some extent Elizabeth. Warren say it's not worth. Do there needs to be bold action? I JUST WANNA call out. Todd how fast we have moved on this debate Russia and I used to work together at politico we worked on a story for years ago about Hillary Clinton supporting public option and at the time her campaign was not keen to call attention to that we have moved to a world where that is now the moderate choice and go a couple of years before that the debate over Obamacare the affordable care act in Congress. The public option at that time was the high watermark for Barack Obama. Trying to get it through the Senate and he couldn't even get that that's why you have no public option under the right

He was wealthy. He sold his velox paper rights to Eastman Kodak for a million dollars. Yes and at that point. He moved into his snug rock estate in Yonkers New York there. He had a home laboratory. Where he worked with his assistant Nathaniel Thurlowe? Oh in the lab bacon began experimenting with combinations of all and formaldehyde years earlier. Scientists experimenting with the Substances Senses reported that the combination formed a hard material other chemist had been working with final and Formaldehyde to create a material that that could compete commercially with Lloyd but they were unsuccessful Bake Lynn and Thurlow began working on creating a synthetic shellac since natural. Natural selleck was in short supply was used to insulate electrical cables but since it was made from a resin secreted by a bug there wasn't enough of it to meet demand hand they did create a female formaldehyde. SHELLAC called Nova lack but it flopped. They switched gears to creating a synthetic resin that could be infused in would to strengthen it. Bacon started writing in a new laboratory notebook in June of nineteen seven documenting the tests using the mixture. Sure on wood. In his June nineteenth century he wrote the following in part all these tests were conducted in concentrated horizontal digest and and the apparatus was a reasonably tight yet. The surface of the blocks of wood does not feel hard although a small part of gum that has moved out is very hard at first.

"eighth twenty twenty" Discussed on KHVH 830AM
"Morning clearly number one top of mind is of course the whistle blower story that's been developing for almost a week now your telephone calls for sees where he's gracious enough to chat with us mark out in Mililani has been waiting since Sunday afternoon to come on the air and for that we appreciate your waiting to the break mark hello how you run with Chris. boring. yeah I think sometimes really confused here none of this conversation would be happening will work with Congress to meeting her don't buy it not been eight twenty twenty. is that true. lord if you would have a better person running for office when the conversation that little intro pad would that be affecting. Chris. so if I understand the question if he wasn't running but he was over he was a retired. Bob former vice president. and with this conversation still have this resonance. yes yeah correct I don't know the. president should. asking a foreign government to investigate an American service and offer the person on the personal benefit I think at the mention your ad about about about Joe Biden and whether he was running or not and the significance I asked the question back with the president have actually spend precious time on the call with Ukraine with the Ukrainian president if it wasn't the guy who was running whose was meeting up are amongst them off the Democrats running against them and that that was. your question. part of the question of whether the primary motive here wasn't that he was doing an investigation for our political motives. thank you much. mark all good. thank you very much I thank you very much for your patience and the quality of your call thank you indeed are we go to Kailua where Lewis joins us Louis your run was he scored a good morning. good morning yeah I kind of really cool is referring thinking on the same lines as the first of all are before me you called in a political opponent and how is he an opponent he she can nomination but he doesn't have it yet so he's not a political opponent and then my second question is or did you listen to the president's phone call without his permission. all right Lewis I appreciate both questions sees where you're good. yeah good part one I'd say that no actually Joe Biden is a political opponent because right now according to everybody that you listen to Joe Biden is a lock for the nomination and the president's most competitive opponent come come twenty twenty and so the the idea of political opponent really is in the minds of the people who are running against in this case you don't have to necessarily be the nominee in order for it to be a political opponent all seventeen or whatever number of Democrats running our political opponents of the president any one of them is going to get the nomination they're going to be an opponent to him so the idea here is that whether you whether Joe Biden gets the nomination or not if this information were to be developed it would have an impact on whether Joe Biden is going to be the nominee that war would have an impact on the twenty twenty election with regard to the calls it is traditional and commonplace because the president needs to document when he says that the NSC there is a special room outside the situation room what people listen to all of his conversations they are transcribed for the record are there are transmitters involved and then those calls again distributed to all the people who need to know what is going bad between two world leaders are so it is it's very unusual almost almost not common place at all well the president to have a phone call wait a foreign head of state for foreign dignitary where there is nobody who is listening. well I think we learned a little bit of that with the Rosemary woods. day I appreciate the call very much was go to co veca out in Hawaii kai and give ECA good morning to you you're on with Chris Hey Rick yeah so my understanding is that the congratulatory call and I think Giuliani's name was brought up by the the other person in Ukraine the prime minister of Ukraine and I is this this is really odd that that day you gotta cheek by law enforcement officer meeting the president United States and he's trying to get into the bottom of the two sixteen Alexian you thousand sixteen election when the last two thousand sixteen Alexis I guess someone had a problem with Hillary Clinton meddling with her steel dossier in getting information from the Russians out of out sourcing and effect to the elections but the deep status so worried now that they can't be Donald Trump on their own they have to concoct this are in graduate Tory conversation they have with Ukraine the guy is trying to you know get the corruption out and all he was doing was saying that his Mister Barr the Attorney General is looking into the US and yet he would help and we do have that treaty that was done and I think it was nineteen eighty six that would allow Ukraine to facilitate in any investigation that we have so it's funny how we don't want to hear anything about the corruption of the left only Donald Trump because they can't be and at the ballot box and the story and thank you very much because he couldn't see square. it's almost a perfect recitation of the White House talking points are just asking because the actually read the transcript because he clearly doesn't have a I a good grasp if you read the three to five pages it's a very very easy reading and best business simply not true I mean there are points Giuliani was released first by cranium president but it was the president who went on and and and ingested more than once the Giuliani reach out directly and talk to the Ukrainian president about the bike and rooting out corruption in Ukraine is everybody's responsibility and I I love the president to the extent that official corruption in Ukraine is a reason why he wanted to do something with Ukraine five two to try to resuscitate an investigation that was was taken was done with for political purposes now. in twenty nineteen twenty twenty for any other reason it makes no sense for the president today to be talking about this on the cusp of our next national election and if it was a real issue why wasn't the president raising this issue with the Ukrainians in twenty seventeen. thank you I'm I'll make the statement again this is not just simply about official corruption is about the targets that the present identified which were the buttons and that is what makes this a corrupt act. I'm gonna take a just a one more call maybe two and then I want to turn it over to Chris because you mentioned before about Biden and how that can be a perhaps stand alone or focusing on what is in front of us let's go to Ron here in Honolulu good morning run around we'll see square. I got a question. Darbo by noon he said are the. question for his son and done doing that his dismissal of the prosecutor as far as I can see your basis the we have a real answer is just what he says during other backgrounder rebel just supports his story that it was Courtney I'm really because it corrupts. Chris I'm not I'm not sure I know so I got that maybe can be crazy for me. well you know the prosecutor was room was why you got on fire because he was corrupt is there anybody else. story other than body. yes I mean it would be it was widely known the time in fact one of the other reported stories is that he I'm the Obama administration ambassador to Ukraine at that point in time actually also called for the dismissal of the prosecutor are the IMF and European governments found that he actually wasn't investigating and doing the kinds of car corruption control that he should and that one of the companies that they said he wasn't acting appropriately with was a bursting out which was the company the hunter Biden works for us so there is it wasn't just simply a statement of the vice president made it was something that was more broadly agreed to with the European the IMF and other instead not international institutions that have economic dealings going on with you great. okay thank you thank you run a very much indeed and I appreciate all calls I'm staying out because the square is our guest and taking your calls it's a matter of fact this is going to be the final call could be could has to be short is I've got to get to the next break go ahead. all that thank you Rick thank you your mind is that right what the question I wanted to ask if the president. technically headed the judicial system. I'm an executive system now needed surgery a big hassle when the Russian investigation by him asking the question I'm not telling them through. investigate it you just asking the question will there be solving the problem for the people. so we don't have another big Russian investigation. I appreciate the VK thank you very much sees where did you did you get the gist of could because question. I think a good I mean I don't see how are there there was one the two parts the president asked the first part was about servers and cloud strife that may have indicated that there were some form of are the origination of the in the emails and Russia interference in the Ukraine that's been much more room and in fact it may be proven yet but I don't see how be an investigation and Joe Biden would do anything that would would help to head off a mother type investigation in terms of foreign influence in fact the request is the creating the same kind of problem that we had by inviting a foreign power to interfere with our elections by producing information at the request of a government official that would interfere with the election. she said very much N. Chris thanks for taking all the calls I gotta get caught up and when we come back sees coral have the floor to further expand on our conversation of this our good morning Hawaii.
