You got into acting at a very young age and were in a movie at age fourteen with River Phoenix right and then. were in dead Poets Society with Robin Williams at Eighteen. I think you're only twenty four. So when you did reality bites the movie with winona Ryder which kind of made you an icon ick figure generation X. or at least that's the way it's remembered. You had a lot of success. Early, we talked a lot of actors and it can take a long time before you have an impact and I'm wondering that kind of success was celebrity a good thing for you. I can't imagine that it's actually a good thing for anybody Particularly a young person. I think that. It can. It can bring a lot of gifts celebrity the power to. Do what you WANNA do open doors and but with you're too young, you don't really know how to use it in a way that is beneficial to yourself and others, and so can be really confusing. You know in a Lotta young people struggle with. who not thinking they're good enough not thinking they're smart enough and if you're if you throw.

California wants to ban gas-powered cars, but is the auto industry ready to go all electric?
"The trump administration is not pursuing climate-friendly Policies California is Governor Gavin. NEWSOM this week pledged to ban all sales of new gasoline powered vehicles in the state by twenty thirty, five California consumes a lot of gas and would be the first state in the country to enact this kind of blanket ban. So what would it mean for the auto industry and for the state's economy marketplace's Jasmine Garcia reports remember that SNL skit the Californians, it's a spoof on how much time Californians spend behind the wheel. Take to the. Age of forty five doors and liftgate dump you onto Mohali Blah. There's something to this California is the largest consumer of motor gasoline in the nation banning the sale of gas powered cars starting twenty, thirty, five cents a message to an auto industry that's been sluggish on change says Ethan L. Kind Director of the climate program at UC Berkeley. Look if you want to do business in a major market, like California, fifteen years you better get going but industry insiders say the ban accelerate the inevitable sam for any with auto forecast solutions. Industry believes that the next big thing is vs the problem is the pricing on visas still expensive it's still takes a while to. Charge charging him structure is building, but it's still not everywhere we needed to be and even with the ban on purchases, it's going to take a long time to get all those gas powered cars off California's roads says Georgia with Sony head of the Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research cars have two three lives. You buy a new car then you sell it maybe five years later, and if it's a good car might through two or three different cycles overeat sales, right. But as the state continues to grapple with climate change, many Californians feel time is of the essence of Jasmine guards for marketplace.
What are the benefits of podcast seasons?
"This week's question comes from Ethan. Hi, I'm them one of the hosts from the young perspective podcast and my question is, what is the point of using seasons, my podcasts, and if they're really beneficial at all, thank you. Thanks for your question. He said now podcasting in seasons can make things a lot more manageable. It can relieve that pressure of constantly having to release new episode and to find time to grow your audience. Now that being said, there are some downsides to it. So let's take a look at what they are and whether podcasting seasons is the right move for you. Before we talk about the benefits and drawbacks of podcasting in seasons, let's talk about what it even is. Think of a podcast season like a television series where with the number of episodes you're telling a sustained story or talking about or exploring a theme. So types of podcasts at do really well with seasons are things like audio dramas where they have a story arc or narrative or Evergreen topics where you can explore a topic at length. Now, the number of episodes doesn't really matter as long as you are declaring, it's a podcast season and you're taking breaks like much you would with a television series. Benefit number one is that it's actually easier to produce because you're doing upfront work in planning your stories or interviews so that you have everything mapped out by the time you hit record unit exactly. What you need to do benefit number two is a gives you a break so that you can work on improving your show. Now I don't know about you but having to consistently produce an episode marketing engaging your audience all those things I know it's super overwhelming. So having that break in between seasons gives you an opportunity to do things like engage more with your audience on social media, getting listener surveys and looking at the feedback for that or even looking at some of your download data. So that he can help, you do things moving forward such as finding better ways to market your podcast or even looking at topics your audience members will really love benefit number three is it gives your listeners a chance to digest all of the information. So let's have a really meaty topic that you want to cover in your podcast season. It gives you a chance to cram in a lot more things because you don't have to assume that each episode your listeners don't really know background information or any statistics you may have covered in a previous episode. So you can build up your episodes in a sequential fashion with each one where you're assuming the list already knows something from the episode before. Here are some reasons why you might not want to podcast in seasons. So reason number one is that it can take more time to create content. Yes. Cream the upfront work and help you be more consistent but that up front work can take a lot of time. If you think about it, you have to map out an entire season. How ever many episodes that is so you got to figure out what you WANNA do from start to finish you. Have to write the scripts lineup all your interviews make sure all these things are ready, which can take a lot more time than if you were producing something like a weekly show number two is that it can be harder to grow and audience. Especially, if you're show is new if you think about it, listeners crave consistency. So doing something like producing a weekly podcast listeners know exactly when episodes drop and what they can expect now when you're podcasting and seasons. The. Actual season. Yes. You are consistently dropping episodes but between episodes if you're not around lizards might forget about you and move on to other shows. Now, one way to combat that is to make sure you're still communicating with your audience members that could be keeping active on social media, a camin still writing email newsletters consistently, or you can do something like drop bonus episodes so that people know you're still producing content and they can anticipate a new season. With the benefits and the drawbacks of podcasting seasons. The point here is just to do podcasting on your own terms, figure out what it is that works best for you and feel really good about that decision and just do it. Thanks for sending US your question Ethan.
The Limits of Filming Police Brutality
"This summer Ethan wrote a new article in it. He looked back on the optimism he felt in two thousand sixteen his faith that cameras and social media could reform the relationship between communities and the police tasked with protecting them. But now, he says increasing awareness through video is not enough as I was wrong. It appears that it was George Floyd's. Killing. That may have led you to change your mind and. You describe watching that video. And being struck by the police officers face as he looked at himself being filmed can can you tell me what it was? You saw that struck you. He makes eye contact with someone who is filming him. And he doesn't even attempt to say put the camera away. He isn't embarrassed about what he's doing. That is the image of someone who is looking at someone filming them and felt like they were not be consequences for his actions. I wanted to read back something you wrote in your piece you said the hope that pervasive cameras by themselves would counterbalance the systemic racism that leads to the over policing of communities of color and the disproportionate use of force against black men was simply a techno utopian fantasy. I think we often look for technological shortcuts to deep societal problems. Systemic racism over policing fear of black men in particular these are giant thorny difficult problems. And I think I and many people hoped that police body cameras in particular but also mobile phone cameras would tilt the playing field. For me the most disturbing and maybe dispiriting piece of this was the fact that we're starting to see very good peer reviewed large scale studies that suggest that police weren't body cameras don't have any measurable effect on use of force on police misconduct compliance, and that seems really surprising for whatever reason. This is not shaping police behavior and I think the answer is that police officers know consciously or unconsciously that there a set of protections that are going to allow them in most cases to use extreme force and and not suffer consequences for it i. think that overrides whatever psychological effects we might have from that sense of being watched. And yet it was that video that lead to water. Now, possibly, the largest protests in American history is that not proof that the the video works. Unfortunately the less. No and I have bad news on that front my lab at Mit Center for Civic Media did a very large study of media coverage of. Police violence affecting unarmed people colored. So we looked at over three hundred instances of unarmed people of color who were killed in encounters with police between twenty thirteen in two, thousand sixteen. What we were able to show was that there was a huge wave of media attention to these stories for about twelve eighteen months after the death of Michael Brown. Before Mike, Brown. These were almost always a reported as an isolated incident after Mike Brown, we were eleven times more likely to link these stories into a larger pattern of systemic police abuse violence. So for that brief period of time for about twelve to eighteen months, we paid much better attention to these stories and we told these stories in a different way we told them as part of a larger pattern. But by the end of our study, media attention was back down to where it had been before. My prediction is that we will see some sort of six twelve, eighteen month window of attention to stories like that, George Floyd. But unless something else substantial changes, I would predict that wave attention will away in much the same way the wave of attention around Michael. Brown federal way. So in light of that, let me continue reading from where I read before. In your piece you say that Techno Utopian fantasy you spoke about was a hope that police violence could be an information problem like Uber Rides or Amazon recommendations solvable by increasing the flows of data. But after years of increasingly widespread gut body CAM use an even more pervasive social media. It's clear that information can work only when it's harnessed to power. What what do you mean here? How do you harness information to power? The hope for change coming out of George Floyd's murder is that this is a moment where communities really go after the structure police departments and the structure of our associated with them. Ferguson. Where Michael Brown was killed is one of the best examples of this that was a police department that had incredible influence within local government and was functioning almost as its own revenue generating and tax generating force. That was a police force that struck Shirley had grown out of control, and one of the things that we have to realize is that we can use things like video and imagery to call attention to this. But unless we harness it to changing those broken institutions, we're GONNA find ourselves back on again.

"Become he's become an enormous star on the back of I'm about family I mean, who could I mean like? We all remember when Tiger Woods looked at the camera and said by Buick by the way I only have sex with my wife I mean I I would argue I would argue data. That's an arbitrary standard for why we did what we did the tiger. You selling US something? No that's just excusing our own buren interest in his sex life because we had an opening I, think that it was a news story initially because she swinging the golf club at that point, we can really pry into it. If, we don't get the appropriate opening if you're not on the police blotter at that point I think is media with anything sexual or family. We tend to leave it alone and I think that's really the rule. It's not about the level of transgression. It's just whether we can get an opening with a with a police story. I'm guessing at least it's super fair. What you do what you're doing you're applying journalistic standard, but I do not need to tell you that there are any number of things end up happening on only the Internet that becomes so gossipy juicy. Then get into more mainstream places but usually something like what happens with Steph when we can catch you in something that feels like hypocrisy a mistake that feels like an apocryphal we don't exhibit very much in the way of fair judgement there. Yeah. I would agree and if you're Kevin Durant, the arbitrary nature of this has to drive you insane because it is arbitrary making it all up as we go along, there's no set standard for any of this. We just make it up retroactively but I agree with you it doesn't make a lot of sense it just is it just happens. Nobody's in control of the conversation and the Internet has a proportionality problem. Nobody nobody is in charge of the scale of the story. We just all do that kind of randomly together ended off in spirals out of control and gets way bigger than a needs to be all the time but nobody's in charge of the scale of the Internet and for that reason, I think that makes the rules almost even more arbitrary. Get you out of here on this one tell the people why they should buy your book tell them what it is that they're going to find in that book that they. Need to be reading I think it's real. You know I think that you'll like the book if you like the behind the scenes, real culture of sports, not the way it's sold to US necessarily as fun and Sunshine and lollipops and emojis and everything else in a way it might even be influenced by the stuff you talk about all the time you're somebody with a deep well of empathy who also understands that sports is a cruel Darwinian hyper masculine crucible. It has sharp edges. It is hard the guys. You're are in it are swashbuckler they're confident. They're not sensitive. You're. So you're seeing these emotions play out in this world that is not necessarily like your office job. It's not necessarily like when I worked for yell you know it's a very different culture and I believe it is an insight into that particular culture that you're not always going to get, and hopefully you can even get some life lessons out Ethan.

You're going to keep interrupting, but you're GONNA run all of this. Aren't you? All right. Thank you. Might you got it man here's Ethan Strauss. Ethan concise as you can be what happened because I thought that once they got together and decided to do this that they would run the sport for ten years but they got tired of winning together what the Hell happen. I mean I think you've seen a version of it. Right? We thought that would happen with the Miami Heat and yeah. With the Miami Heat at least it was difficult. It wasn't not one not two not three not four not five but at the end of that run. If, you recall and I remember talking to Tom haberstroh about it he was in that locker room after they lost to the spurs and finally got blown out and eliminated, and it wasn't sadness in that locker room. It was relief it was giddiness. There's something about the NBA that is particularly punishing to its winners were they don't like it after a while and with the warriors I. Think we all assume that man. They would run the sport for years and they would be happy for years dominating. But. Maybe it actually a was too easy and be at least for Kevin Durant at a certain point. The warriors were getting more from him than he was getting from them. He was not getting the reputational boost from joining them they. He would've assumed he was almost in the Chris Bosh position as you've talked about of not knowing the sacrifice until you make it even while winning finals MVP two times in a row and kicking Lebron's asked. So I think that was the main dynamic of the instability it really. Revolved around K. G. along with the general atrophy that you just see with these teams play one hundred games a sees. What can you tell us about his prickly personality? What can you tell us about you know hiding in the shadows on the Internet and caring this way about how people regard you? Well, he wants to be liked I think that's fundamental. I don't think he's a bad guy there's nobody there's nobody I talked to for this and I think it's a testament to something in him. That is winning. Engaging charismatic when he when he's in his good moods, which is nobody ever told me he's a bad guy. They often prefaced their complaints with he's not a bad guy but and so I think with him, he wanted the love. He wanted the validation and he was almost a purist and thought that basketball do it for them and that by beating everybody, he would finally get the accolades and he would finally fill whatever void was there and he had seen an example Lebron. As a guiding light where he had seen Lebron get heated for his free agency decision to go down to Miami and then find redemption and wouldn't Lebron beat Kevin Durant's thunder in a series or Kevin. Durant averaged over thirty points a game and it.

"Hello I'm Dan Le Batard welcome again to South Beach sessions. We have done a great deal of societal talk recently and what I wanted to do with Ethan Strauss here one of the great basketball reporters anywhere in terms of writing and reporting, and then combining it with perspective that allows you to see a clearer picture. What I wanted to do is get into the weeds with Ethan Strauss on something really. sporty which is why did a great champion and break up a champion that would have done a lot of winning that got together to do a lot of winning why is it that that fell apart I don't believe it's actually been covered enough. I do believe that it's one of the most hated champions we've ever seen because Golden State did it that specific way I have found Ethan Strauss to be unusually thorough. With both his reporting and his perspective and he spent a lot of time with that team and wrote a book about that team until I wanted to condense that for you and give you sort of cliff notes version so that you can go and get the book because he does a lot of very good macro and micro-. When it comes to studying a team that I believe will be one of the most. Misunderstood. We have seen. So instead of doing some of the stuff that we've been doing around here with south beach sessions where it's been biographical or where it's been deep or somber or societal, we're getting deep into the weeds with sports here with a reporter who is really good at perspective. Let's get to Ethan Strauss in a second but first here's Mike Ryan to tell you about this week South Beach.

Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong
"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.
Trump administration weighs blocking TikTok in the U.S.
"TIKTOK was initially released in August twenty eighteen when the APP merged with the ever popular musically. Since then TIKTOK has grown to over one hundred sixty five million downloads in the United States alone eight year increase of three hundred and seventy five percent, according to APP Annie's report on the State of Mobile, twenty, twenty Tiktok is also popular in Southeast Asia especially in China and India until it was eventually banned in India. Tick talks. Most popular user has over seventy million followers, and most of the content on Tiktok is comprised of fifteen second videos with dancing comedy lip, synching and other activities however reports that Secretary of State Mike, Pompeo and president trump are looking into banning the APP. So why would the US want to ban TIKTOK? Well to talk is owned by a China based company called by dance and the trump administration is worried about possible influence from China more specifically that the Chinese government might have access to the data that tiktok collects from its users, but according to Sam sacks from Yale quote. The Chinese government does not necessarily have unfettered real time access to all companies data. Chinese corporate actors are not synonymous with the Chinese government or the Chinese Communist Party and have their own commercial interests to protect and this is according to CNN. In today's episode. We're bringing on to kid debaters to voice their opinions on the prompt. Should the United States. Talk and other questions relating to the popular APP although this episode was initially recorded on July thirteenth twenty twenty. This is the first time we are airing it. Let's get into the debate. Joining me. Now is Erin Santamaria Sixteen and Ethan Pie Fifteen? Are you guys doing? Doing all right. How about you? Don't pretty good real good about you. Good? As, you know TIKTOK has recently captivated. The younger generation and many of our friends are avid users of the APP. Recently however, the US government has raised some security concerns over the popular APP specifically. It's possible relation to the Chinese government. TIKTOK is currently banned in India along with many other Chinese apps in the area, and both the Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee have cautioned their campaigns against using the APP. The first question I want to ask you guys is the main question we're looking at here. Should the US Ben Tiktok. I'll I. might that question to air? Now? It's a really complex thing on whether or not. The US should ban TIKTOK because. At face value, it can seem very inane issue. It seems to be just this APP that kids enjoy, and it doesn't really have much ground as to why someone would want to ban it. However you do see the side that it is based in China and the company called Bite. Dance oversees the operations and similar countries India as well have proposed bands, and actually India did end up banning it, so there clearly is some discussion to be had there as for whether or not, it should actually be banned tiktok itself as a wide list of benefits for its younger generation. It offers activism as a as. As a platform it offers ways to express themselves such as like music or dance or art. There's a variety of tiktok. Obviously, comedy is what it drives for and take talk as a whole, creates this culture amongst young people of expressing themselves of being open to new ideas, and it's really it's really a cultural phenomenon seeing these people, the younger generation, expressing themselves through video, an showing exactly who they are as people, and it's. It's great individualistic expression, although there is the concern of the data mining on behalf of of Bite Dance now personally I do not believe that. TIKTOK should be banned in the. The US as it creates a sense of fear between the US, and China, as it furthers this narrative that the US and China are constantly at odds, and yes, they are at odds being the two largest economies in the world, but it doesn't necessarily give way for the US, to propose all these measures and instigate all these tech wars with the Chinese government, which I think. TIKTOK is another example of and as we saw with quality products us has been very adamant about keeping its its data to itself, although this does raise some concerns about what happened with facebook a few years back where they were data. Data Mining I believe that there should be a level of consistency with US government, because this is a similar issue, though competing governments can be cited as a reason for difference here I think overall the US needs to look at itself and think about the precedent it wants to set for tech violations. Does it want to continue to admonish the Chinese government for what could possibly or possibly not be these large allegations, so I personally believe that should should not because it could create that level of fear and that level of tension between the US and Chinese governments, but yeah it. It certainly is a concern.

Trump seeks to rally base with immigration full-court press
"STAY SAFE MAINSTREAM Warren village. It's the Dave Ramsey show. WD DV. The US Supreme Court last week came out with a second pretty big decision and one, which was not popular with the trump administration, having to do with the With the dreamers, the children of immigrants some of whom have grown up pretty much all in the United States and have considered themselves US residents. Maybe American citizens even although Let's talk about the particulars here. Dan Richardson. These folks are. How would you categorize them? Actually are. If you're a citizen, you're you're not. You're not in this category anymore. Is that right? People? That were brought to the United States You know without without permission. I it legally is the term. That's used although I think it's. It's important to realize that a lot of immigration law is civil as opposed to to criminal and I think we tend to when we think of things is being illegal, which is true? You know we have to be careful. And I think is important distinction. because it's a lot of what this case rests upon as well but these are people. These are individuals who brought to the country as as small children by parents that did not have permission that we're you know either overstaying their visas or entering without permission or visas, and then taking up permanent residence, so these are people who were technically born in another country did not have citizenship, but for all intents and purposes have been raised as American citizens. Their entire lives or at least akin to that. and so it was intended. This is a policy program that was created by the Obama Administration, which was intended to slice at some of the immigration issues that seem to have stymied a lot of national politics, and this is a good example of what I was talking about before. which is that one way or the other? We have not been able to come up with a good policy solution to any type of immigration issue We have not resolved the fact that there are. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of. People living in this country that do not have full citizenship status for one reason or another. And, this was an attempt to to cut off. Probably the most innocent of that bunch these people that did not cross on their own volition. They were brought These are people who do not have strong ties to the country. where they came from in many cases, they do not speak the language. They do not have Relatives or or friends or acquaintances in the country and they are for all intensive purposes, productive members of and the fact that was one of the requirements that they be productive members of society I. Mean these are people who have either served military or who? Hold essential jobs are professionals you know it was an attempt to create the best class of of immigrants that lacked any type of of legal standing and to protect them, and to say look. We'll deal with immigration in these other things, but we're. WE'RE NOT GONNA go after the best and the brightest. Will Continue to let them stay in the country In this case, it's a five four decision. Chief Justice Roberts again voting with the majority but it a very narrow decision. And it really rests upon whether or not the administration. The trump administration gave. A good reason to abandon this policy. and in some ways you know I've heard this characterized. This is basically the Supreme Court swatting down sloppy legal work on the trump trump administration's. Side others might characterize it differently but essentially what it comes down to is the fact that the trump administration on basically two one page memos tried to change this policy and eliminate it when there were you know thousands of people that had. Relied upon it had given up information that they would not otherwise be a required to give up who had made changes in plans. Change their life and made adjustments based on the promise of this government policy, and while the government can change policy when such things occur when they're such reliance by parties on it, there has to a good reason and the Supreme Court basically said. Government you haven't given us good reason. And it doesn't mean the government can't go

Somebody's Super Smart Guy but ultimately we were just having this conversation. Where here's putting of would building on the front of a steel building? And then we through discussing it? He was going to spend his entire life in the steel building. And is really Kinda bummed out about exceeds work in this great art now, but he works in the back, and so we started exploring what your options in value engineering that we could. Make the back would in see if would ever make any financial sense. When we got there, and through that process, you actually hired us where the general contractor on that which is a little less common. We do general contract projects, but I'd say we probably do. In a less than ten a year out of you know probably sixty projects here though we do because they need to be close in is as close as you can be. What is your geographic reach Ethan? How far will you guys travel travel? I. It's actually kind of funny. I don't think there's really a limit. I think the biggest challenges logistics doesn't make sense because you know one thing that we focus on very strongly as the guys need to get home, I mean the road. Guys need to have a life. They can't go out in the field for three months. Their companies occupations where that's part of the norm. The oil, field, industry and stuff like that, but like our guys all have families. They need to come back so if they're gonNA. Go out for two weeks coming home. That means of that should be the only two weeks. You can't happen over and over again. show that just ultimately results in higher costs show we're doing as we're doing a like Washington DC project coming up fairly soon, There's mother stuff we've done. We've delivered frames. Of Florida we've gone up to Michigan. We let other contractors. Put Up your frames, is that can that be done yet? That's common. Even even locally. There's there's contractors it, the cuddle, love timber frame, but the basically what was considered a kit from us? Where will fully prefabricate everything? And then they they'll tackle the installation. is you kind of a cool thing that a lot of our customers are contractors carpenters that are kind of. Of Getting on in their experience in, they're doing a personal project like we did a a cigar burn frame for a local G. C.. You know he's he's at the point where he's setting his personal property and doing the things he's always wanted to do, so we cut these great frames and his guys come in and put it up and he's part of the process. It's really rewarding. Really Cool. How many folks work at your company? And what is the breakdown between the folks who build the frames those who put them up and those who work in the office? So the there's usually about thirty people at the company. I think we're actually going to be adding. Think. We have an are adding two more right now. Gone to compensate for a little bit. The remote working slowdown that we've seen so basically. There are roughly ten people involved in the office including the owners. That doing everything from design to project management. Purchasing a the office management all that stuff we typically have roughly around eight guys in the shop itself. And then we have about twelve guys in the field. The guys in the field, actually you. As far as I know every single one of them can hand, but a timber frame, so it's not at all unusual that that you know two or three or four of those guys from the field might come into the shop to help push frames out, and then they'll go out in almost all the feel the guys in the shop. Actually you know how to go on the field as well so it's a little fungible, but if you just look at their kind of core responsibilities that that's that's what the breakdown is. We typically have about two crews out in the field, installing several projects at any given time and the the. Guys, who are going to be in the shop can actually keep those guys in know all about making sure that we have frames coming through guys to install. Have you noticed us a slowdown with the pandemic. We. I think we had a couple of projects that were postponed. One of those I know we're already talking about getting back into action on inquiry. Wise! No, I mean it's. It's actually been kinda chaos. Your I think a lot of people are home. Have time to think. On the business development in estimating side, I, think we're seeing higher amounts of inquiries that we saw last year. All in all I don't think. We've we've had a single day of layoffs. Really going on you know I know in the office I actually. Most of us are working slightly more hours because we're a little bit less efficient than we used to be kind of worse or remotely. Although that's getting easier, we're getting better at it. Do you think that things will go back to the way. They were with guys all in an office at any point I. Mean it seems to me that once you figure out. You can do this. The attractiveness of working from home speaking for myself. Hard to walk away from right, I mean it's pretty nice. I mean. I Can't speak for everybody because I haven't taken a poll Most of the guys talked to would love to be back in the office. The I. Speak for myself. I work I work from home essentially for years, I liked going to an office. I mean there's times where you don't necessarily feel as productive ought our organization also kind of focuses more on getting work done where a little bit less trajan about Come in punted.

"Encourage everyone to check it out and You know just tell a friend about it really WANNA do where We're currently operating in fifty countries. And we've graduated two point three million kids from the program though way totally so people often think about survivor as a show. That's creating fans around the world but what they don't realizes this show for me has been a springboard to a life that I would have never been able to do by starting grassroot soccer and saving lives around the world and so I think that's a really neat thing to know about the show survivor and bring that forward 'til now. Every year they auctioned off all the props you see in the show on Ebay to raise money for stand up to cancer to for Cancer Research. Which is wonderful as well. It's amazing awesome. What is Bachelor doing? I was just GonNa say I'll all I've done a soul diarrhea tea and start a podcast so they give any money. That's my excuse tips on their no. Talk to your boy Bennett. All right I'M GONNA get. Dave can introduce a bachelor currency Whereas like some sort of token of appreciation. Maybe that'll be nice because those guys don't appreciate me at all no they should more. I really You don't even get to see the bureau of me. Walk around cleaning up. I think you need a bigger role. So this is my philosophy about you. Yeah and tell me if you watch the show. Yeah of course I watch your show. Oh my wife loves the show. She loves you and we feel. I feel that Bennett and Chris Harris are just grooming you to be the next Chris. How're no no no I? I've heard that a lot. And here's the thing cause. I'm good friends with Chris. And it's the same thing with with Jeff. There can be no other highlander. There can be only one. I wouldn't want to be like Harrison point. I'll do my own thing I like making first of all. I like my Gig. 'cause they drinks and giving people bad advice. Not kind of stuff. But you're right. I do need some tokens and maybe we do need like a purgatory in paradise. Where like you get dumped? But you're still there united. How do you get back into the game? How do you get another date? If you're in the no shave his moustache. There's gotta be a way to get back in and dude empowered is is the place to be. Do you think people play the regular bachelor to get on the Paradise version. I mean I wouldn't now. It's not just now. You're like on survivor. Some people are playing to get us back. They don't care if they win or lose their first round playing to make make a statement make a big move so like they'll be asked back for returning season. Yeah I'd imagine some of the players have that in their mind when they're playing bachelor when I first went. There wasn't the show that it is now it was kind of like. I don't WanNa do that. Show it's Kinda trashy and now it's very popular so I think that now it's the worst thing in the world if you get dumped if you get to go spend a month on the beach in paradise unless you're blake and then everything looks real bad on. I don't WanNa talk about me when I talk about you so after you win the million dollars you start this amazing sharing you do other Reality TV shows. I do but also you get sick in this timeframe. Yeah so what happens. I I go in reality TV. Gives you cancers where we're saying? Yeah that was a joke like I feel like I have. I can make those jokes if I offended anyone. I'm sorry but yeah survivors. Ever all stars amazing race. Fear factor everything. I did all the the whole machine of shows that back in the day but in two thousand and nine. I was diagnosed with a rare form of blood. Cancer called CD Twenty Positive Hodgkin's lymphoma I never heard of it either. Don't worry Multiple Chemotherapy twenty two blocks of radiation and they had an autologous stem cell transplant. Which got the disease into remission which was great and I was in remission. For twenty months and then I relapsed and the cancer came back. And obviously you know getting the news that the cancer returned was deflating exponentially more difficult than the first Running out of options and Lucky. For me I start on experimental. New Therapy called smart targeted therapy. I don't really know what they put in this stuff. But it's pretty frigging smart. Because he's got the disease intermission again is able to go on to get a second stem cell transplant. This time using my brother Lee as the donor so now seven years in remission and thank you very and healthy enough to go play survivor. I know then that's craziness crazy in a weird way did survivor. I mean looks so taxing. And here's the thing so when I watch that show. I think there's so many times I would be like I'm out I've got to go. This is too hard this is. This is dangerous for me. This is stupid. Like I'm not GONNA win. I could see myself doing that and I got pulled a red flag. Whatever I'm out you know but there's people who are really mentally tough and obviously you are one of those people if you're able to win in a weird way did winning survivor. Help you win the battle with cancer in a weird way a little bit. Yeah I mean one. I'm playing for a million bucks when I'm playing for my life. Put that aside but like when I get back to our earlier this game pushes you. Further than you'll ever be able to do it in a controlled atmosphere so you're not. GonNa die but you can come as close to dying as possible in like it pushes you and then you gotta push yourself even more so I think I brought that attitude into the fight against cancer and growing up as an athlete I had a little bit of that competitive mentality and so with survivor. Knowing how far I can really push myself and skinny. I got tired and lethargic and I still could muster the strength to go do some challenge or whatnot that I think helped a lot going through cancer. Yeah definitely so you. You've been in remission for the past seven years said and at which point did you go back to survivor in this journey because this is the third time now right this is the third time so first time was two thousand one second time two thousand four and now in two thousand twenty so for me the time in between as I said before and when I I kind forgot what the question was I guess. My question was just like timeline. Did you get sick before the second season so I got sick yes okay? I'm sick in two thousand nine. Two thousand nine to two thousand thirteen. I was sick and then now this is when the second the third survivor came around. So Yeah all right. So you're you're back on now. I guess we're now in present day you're back on the show or you're bound to go back on the show. What is your. What is your wife saying about this? She like again. Go on the when I when I was sick for. The second time is actually watching survivor. Season Twenty here's versus villains in my hospital room like dreaming or praying that I'd be alive long enough or get out of this thing so I could go play again like I knew that something like this would be looming. But so ten years later. They asked me back and my wife was excited. But nervous but totally encouraged me to go CO. Try this thing like I was probably more nervous than she was like. I've lived a nice comfortable life with. I got my two cats. Got My wife. I got mounds of cannabis everywhere. Life is good. You know like here I. Am You want me to go play survivor? Like I don't have any of this stuff you know so I don't have my toolkit and for me. Cancer was okay. When a doctor tells you to do something you die. You pretty much do it. There's no choices but after cancer. That what we call a survivorship was torturous for me like I had a really tough time getting my life back together. You know dump trucks full of uncertainty invisible scars that need healing like I you know. I didn't look good. I didn't feel good. I was infertile. I didn't have a job. I didn't have health insurance. Like I'm not the guy you want to bring home to mom and say. Hey this is this is so for me getting myself to a place where I was just mentally stable huge for me so she was happy that I could go play again excited about doing it. I mean I I see where you're coming from. And those are like internal issues but on the other side of the coin. It's like this guy who beat cancer. This is a guy who won survivor. You know this is a guy who played professional soccer. You know. There's I see where you're coming from but also there's how the coin of like a bad ass. Don't forget it. You know a thank you. I appreciate that. This has been so fascinating to hear your story in. It makes me feel very bad about what I've done with my career but it's fine. I wanted to have a podcast that well you should have one and guess bartender shake. I can make you a six be very proud of accomplished. Well thank you I'll make you a stiff drink. You roll up a nice fatty and then everything will be fine. No no no fire. Instead of fire tokens its token by the fire. Hey quick break we come back. I WANNA do a rapid fire.

"A man who won I think the first like truly iconic reality TV show in survivor on season. Three Ethan's on. How are you man? I'll do a great. Yeah you so much for having me. This is a pleasure now. This was back in the day in which I was obsessed with survivor. I remember your season very very vividly And I I just remember being like I could totally do this and me and my brother like before I ever is so funny. My brother was like was contacted on the bachelor the Bachelorette and then I ended up doing it but we were like no. No no no no no we WANNA do survivor. And they're like no dude. You're not doing survivor. So you're back at it again. Yeah why I don't know what are you doing? I took a sixteen year hiatus. Yeah I hung up the survivor boots. And then I had a resurrected and get off my couch. Start Training again get ready for survivor season. Forty forty you. Were just talking about season three. Yeah we're in season forty and it's called winners at war and they brought back twenty of the most popular epic legendary survivor winners of all time to compete again. But this time it's not one million two bucks that should have been forty million. That doesn't make any sense to me. First of all survivor is not a young man's game. Now so you know it is a young man's game and you young. You're not anymore. I mean this was a long time ago that you one one more million dollars. I don't understand why you coming back for this. Well you know I I. I played twenty seven years old. Second time I played was thirty years old and then now I'm forty six and it was just an incredible opportunity. I mean this show literally changed my life back in the day and for those folks who are listening. They don't realize the history of reality television like back in two thousand one like reality shows. Weren't that prevalent. There weren't that many of them out there in survivor is one of the most popular ones. And so I was jumped at the chance back. Then jump at the chance here and I've been through some pretty significant health challenges and so for me to get back to a place in my life where I'm physically and mentally capable of taking on survivor and everything it has to offer was a huge win for me so just getting today. One was like a gift. Okay well later on the show I WANNA talk about. Some of your health scares during your issues but it seems to me that any doctor worth his salt would be like no. You're not allowed to do this. How are you able to go and play again? I got a lot of medical checkups extra time from day. Cbs CRC. I need an extra month to get all my health checked out but I wouldn't say the doctors said it was a good idea but for me it was a good idea. You know it's a it's a perfect little book and okay. This incredible life way it was. It was famous last words. It was a good idea. Play that clip where it was not a great idea..

"It's it's I'm excited for to do the show. I'm excited to be back in a radio studio have been in one in a couple of weeks but it's also sad for me because I spent the majority of my life into radio studio in Nashville Tennessee and Last night something crazy happened in music city.

"For checking in and listening along with us. I got a great one for you this week. My guest is Ethan Hawke, Ethan. I got together in his neighborhood in Brooklyn sat down in his favourite bar to talk about a film. That's getting him a lot of award season talk. It's called I reformed. He plays. A priest's struggling with his faith. A lot of critics say it's the performance of his long career and a lot of people suggesting he could win some awards for it. He's already been nominated for the Gotham award for best actor in the movie for best film, a lot of people see that as sort of a precursor and tell about what may be coming down the road at the Oscars. We also talked about a passion project of his his film blaze. He wrote it he produced it he directed about an unsung country music legend named blaze Foley, true story, real life. So we get into both of those as well as his career and the breakout role when he was just a kid. And dead poet's society. What he learned from Robin Williams on that set about acting how that role taught him that this is what he wanted to do with his life and influence the rest of his career also sort of being an artistic guy in Hollywood world. In other words, turning down some roles you'd be shocked to hear he did early in his career. He was supposed to do a move your. He was offered a movie with Jack Nicholson had to call his hero. Jack Nicholson and say I can't do the movie because I'm working on a novel a twenty something doing that. He also talks about his daughter is twenty year old daughter Maya with his ex wife Uma Thurman who will be appearing and starring in the third season of stranger things, really interesting. Really smart guy. I think you'll enjoy the conversation with Ethan Hawke right now on the Sunday, sit down podcast, thanks for doing this. Appreciate it. This pleasure. So which what's the first bourbon, we reach for when we walk into this. Great bar. Okay. The first bourbon that we'd reach for when. Go I would have to go. Well, you start with the bullet ri- shirts says to make yourself feel at home in. Then I don't wanna wait too long before you drink the expensive stuff. Right. See go up to the Ballantine's, you know, a little bit as soon as you can't. Yeah. You really drunk. He can switch to Jack, Dan, that's thing. Right. Going to be too drunk when you get to the good stuff. Yeah. Waste a month. Like, always drink, expensive wine right away early or. Yeah. Don't waste which means. It's usually lost on people. So this is your spot. Thanks for having us here. We'll thanks for meeting me on a busy time for you just nominated for a bunch of awards for first reform. Congratulations awards in a movie the actor the screenplay. What do you think people responding to in that move? We were just talking. It's not a huge budget movie with a big marketing budget, but people have really identified it as one of the movies here. I don't know that I'm the right person to talk about it because it is hard to talk about how much you like your own work and not sound like a jerk. Hope you through this. But I will say that there's something about Paul Schrader wrote taxi driver in enraging bowl back at a time period. When people really wanted cinema to be incendiary when people were expecting from the movies a grownup experience. Meaning there's something that's happened to movies where it's been because it's so oriented about making money, then they really they want to appeal to the most amount of people possible at all times in if you're doing that you can't make taxi driver because taxi drivers not really made to peel to the masses. It's made to find you at a specific moment in your life. And if you see it if you see raging bull at the right moment in your life. It'll actually change you. But it's not it's not what you do from six to eight because you have nothing else to do..

"Ethan booth mon is the cto at tender meant ethan welcome to software engineering daily thank you great to be here i think the root of what we're talking about today is consensus protocols and then we'll get into the applications that can be built with consensus protocols including crypto currencies and networks of blockchain's starting from a base level what is a consensus protocol who great question a contentious protocol is any protocol that allows a diverse set of agents to agree on something so i like to think of really any kind of shared state or kind of coordination that is successful as having achieved consensus and as implying some kind of underlying consensus protocol so you know for instance we agreed on a time for us to meet today so we had some consensus protocol that we were able to negotiate a time to come together and so human and human organizations and societies have for hundreds or thousands of years had consensus protocol running implicitly across them that allow them to have shared tradition shared cultures a shared languages allow them to understand each other and so on and in the starting around the late nineteen seventies when computers were becoming more mature and engineers decided hey you know let's use microprocessors to control aircrafts while they realized they couldn't just use one microprocessor because they needed more than one in case of some kind of fault right when you're flying an airplane it's a highly kind of adversarial environment you're processor might one of the might go down or there might be kind of arbitrary bit flips from the radiation whatever so they needed they needed multiple processors controlling the aircraft and they needed to make sure that those processors always agreed on the state of the aircraft and what to do next at all times and so that was kind of the motivation for the formal study of consensus protocols in computer science and since.
