Proposed Changes to Content Generation Methods

"To summarize the failings of the current method one technical issues bugs the 'cause mismatch between headlining content or cause audio to begin or end where it shouldn't or not at all. Well there's some other issues that come up every now and again so the war on bugs continues next you. Manera review is make mistakes. We try to combat this with training and oversight and let's call it natural selection when that doesn't help and third lack of discrimination or call it lack of editorial judgement with become an audio version of a news aggregate but we haven't applied equality filter on the content with publishing adding one is complex and i'll expand on that in a moment also doodoo al heavy reliance on automated methods to generate candidates. Were not using editorial judgement to search for content with missed which happens when we can't match audio to a headline or the system mismatches audio to a headline and the candidate. I is removed during the review process. These two issues editorial judgement when approving content and editorial judgement when searching for content are arguably the two easiest challenges we can fix by substituting floored automated methods with more manual curation aka more intensive human involvement introducing more Judgment comes at a press to increase. Quality will need to sacrifice quantity and freshness his wife for a review to make a decision about a particular item. like should. This burst bright spot in the war against covid. Nearly ninety million americans have now received at least one dose of tobacco into a playlist. They need to know a few things i like. Do we already have a burst on. This playlist is the other burst. Better a side. Note here who decides. What's better is a whole other kettle of fish if the original burst is better. It should stay if it isn't it needs to be removed. My point is the review and aids to read in before beginning their shift. They need to be familiar with the playlist before they begin reviewing candidates. Right now the. Us news playlist has fifty three bursts. And that'll easily be over an hour of audio next problem. Maybe both bursts missing something. Maybe the story has developed further. Or maybe we never even had a candidate burst or a boost in the playlist to start with our review and needs to read in to the entire topic when they start their shift to make sure. We're not missing any new news in our playlist and if we are they need to actively go search and manually curate a first to fill that hole that takes a whole lot more time than just an interface and passively reviewing burst after burst. That's offered up by an automated system so the review a needs to be familiar with all the continent playlist. Or let's say at least the first ten to fifteen bursts they need to know and understand the significance of each item. Let's call that the editorial white of each story and after they have all that knowledge can they begin actively q. Writing the playlist another complexity currently review can publish relevant content to more than one playlist for example. A health story involving a multinational pharmaceutical company might be relevant also to the business playlist but in our new curated world the review. It will need to be up to date with both playlists before they can add a burst both otherwise they might be adding a duplicate. They'll need to pack. That burst somewhere that the appropriate review of for that category will see it and be able to consider it as a candidate for the playlist. This pushes the content generation needle back towards the curation side of the spectrum in a more professional team will be required to make editorial decisions regarding the type of content will be approved and added to playlists. We can expect to significantly lower number of bursts to be approved as we emphasized quality. Instead of quantity populating the playlist will be a hybrid between using the review system and manually searching for content using asks the ms a much slower process. This new heavily curated process can be applied in two different ways method. One we leave the existing system more or less intact review continue to passively process bursts and classify them this one to us news this one to business etcetera and then an additional layer of editors already familiar with the topic and up-to-date with all bursts currently in the playlist would step in and curate a playlist from a pool of reviewed bursts at set intervals. Perhaps every two hours for newsy playlists every four hours for less time sensitive content in short we would have automated candidates reviewed candidates and finally curated playlists published. I'm doing air quotes here. At specific times method to a more professional team of curator's is scheduled to work long shifts when a curator begins working on a particular topic. They i spend time becoming familiar with the playlist content. They'll need to skim then the latest news on the topic and then they begin. Actively curing the content reviewing all candidates will need to update the burst view tool to expose all candidates at one time to a reviewer and deciding which items to review and which to manually curate viral searchable. Cms baby steps. I'm going to start by allowing reviewers to discriminate and use their editorial judgement when it comes to approving boasts there is a challenge and a slightly philosophical issue here how to stand. It is a subjective quality. That is what i think is good and whether i should standardize it. Who says that. My definition of good is the correct. One i'm sure. I'm the first person in an editorial role to consider these problems. I'm going to begin. By pointing super reviews content team members whose professional level value higher than others injuring this shifts. They will check over playlists removing unworthy content and if necessary curing missing content next. Podcast basket playlists. I've slightly neglected this area during this talk for a number of reasons one. The challenge here is actually easier to fix on the one hand. There are much fewer logistical complexities involved. Then when dealing with news on the other hand these playlists make up. The bulk of are available content. They currently get the least amount of traffic. And they're extremely time consuming to produce for starters. I'll begin appointing certain playlists curation by specific reviewers and as much as possible reviews will be working with areas. They're interested in. I think it's feasible that will need to cut back on the number of quality reviewed playlist. Where offering here at least at first until we start getting more traffic to these playlists. I don't think that should be a major concern.

Biden, Dems prevail as Senate OKs $1.9T virus relief bill

"Senate. Democratic leaders have reached an agreement over unemployment benefits with moderate democratic senator joe manchin ending a nine hour. Standoff threatened to derail action on president biden's covert relief bill. The agreement would extend the existing three hundred dollar weekly unemployment benefit through september the sixth and it offers tax forgiveness and to ten thousand two hundred dollars in unemployment benefits for those who make less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year in a statement released tonight. Senator manchin said we have reached a compromise that enables the economy to rebound quickly while also protecting those receiving unemployment benefits from being hit with unexpected tax bills. Next year joining us. Now on this breaking news democratic. Senator tim kaine of virginia he is a member of the senate budget committee. And the senate armed services committee senator. Kaine good to see you this evening on one hand. I'm not quite sure what what was happening. In the senate for nine hours on the other hand we have crossed an important hurdle at this point and are moving toward the passage of this bill. Tell me what is going on malley. You're right. I mean we've got fifty democratic senators and we need every one of their votes to get this bill which will do so much good for americans to president by his desk. Senator manchin hannah concern about the way the unemployment insurance benefits were structured. And he stuck to his guns and that concern was not my concern. I i really liked the bill as it came over from the house. I think we made it. Stronger of senator manchin needed some additional adjustments to get there. But now we're there and we're gonna rocket four and they're going to be dozens. Maybe hundreds of amendments that republicans will offer tonight and tomorrow but democrats. We have linked arms with president biden said. The american public needs this relief and they needed soon. And we're gonna stay at our desks and tell sometime over the weekend. We send this bill back to a house for a quick vote so the president by to get it next week four unexpected. It's obvious why so. Many americans support this bill. It's not actually a partisan thing it's money that people need in their pockets. It is overwhelmingly popular amongst americans. It is even supported by the majority of republican voters. What's going on. what's what's the reason for. Fifty republicans not voting in favor of this and by the way. No republicans voted in favor of it in the house alley. My my gut is this. I think they've made a strategic decision and remember just replay. The tape back to the beginning of the obama biden administration. They just sort of decided no matter what. The new president offers to rescue the american economy. We're going to be against it. I will say this. This is a bill. That is just chock full of of provisions that republicans have offered in past years. It's chock full of provisions that are desired by republican governors. And mayors as you point out it's full of provisions that are popular republican voters and when it's implemented it's gonna do enormous good for republicans and independents and democrats so they made a strategic decision. That and i can't put myself in their shoes about why they don't want to be four but will be able to bring the final bill out and show you. How much bipartisan Agreement there is this bill. The democrats are just riveted upon the fact. We're still ten million jobs down from where we were laying out here. We've lost five hundred thousand people. Were not out of the woods yet. We're not gonna go slow to go fast. Climb out of this crisis.

I am tired just thinking about that. Think about half of that. How long does that take too long. Mara hey there. It's the politics podcast. I'm wanna summers. I cover demographics and culture Susan davis i cover. Congress and i'm mara liasson national political correspondent. This is president biden's first full day in office and he's already signed a series of orders and directives that are meant to target the covid nineteen pandemic mar out. What's in these packages. What are your takeaways here. The big takeaway is that the biden administration is gonna use the federal government much more aggressively than the trump administration. Did the trump administration pretty much left all things cova to the states and then they said that they would step in to help. Unnecessary biden has signed an order to direct government agencies to use the defense production act. Trump did this to but biden's gonna use it a lot more aggressively. He wants to use it to address shortfalls in all sorts of things. Vaccines masks gowns. Gloves syringes And also he's going to try to get one hundred million doses of the vaccine not just manufactured but distributed an into people's arms in one hundred days. And it's just worth stating. I think that a number of things that we saw the president roll out between today and yesterday on that first sweep of executive orders. These are things that people had been calling on the trump administration to do for some time. That they they did not do. That's right and the according to the incoming biden administration people. They say that things are worse than they thought. There was no vaccine distribution plan. When they came in there now saying they're going to have to start from scratch sue. We also have heard that the new administration is pushing congress to pass a one point nine trillion dollar relief package. And you know any way you cut it. That is a lot of money. What's in the package. This is one point nine trillion in addition to trillions of dollars. That have already gone out the door. A lot of this package is really familiar. Things additional unemployment benefits direct aid to small businesses. The big thing that has gotten a lot of attention is the fourteen hundred dollar stimulus checks that are included in it. If you recall in the last Cova bill that congress passed included a six hundred dollar checks and then there was this big blow up because president trump then said he wanted it to be two thousand dollars. Democrats said great. Let's do that so this fourteen hundred dollar number is sort of combining those two to get to the two thousand dollars. It's kind of an arbitrary figure to begin with because of the political moment and trump saying he supported it and everybody rallying around it. Democrats are kind of stuck with this figure right now and it's not gonna be easy. You know sue. There were a small handful of republicans who were favorable to those two thousand dollar checks. He like like josh hawley. And marco rubio We know that since biden has been inaugurated all of a sudden republicans have become born again deficit hawks. They never seemed to care about the deficit when there's a republican in the white house and we know that trump increase the deficit to historic levels. Are they still going to support the two thousand dollar checks now that it's a democratic president. Who wants them you know. It's a tricky issue. Because i do think there's a lot of republicans like josh hawley. Who take away from the trump era that there is a popularity and economic populism that trump sort of championed and that they see this as a winning political issue especially because a lot of their own base again is white working class people who could really benefit from this money from the direct stimulus. But there's also some hesitancy among some democrats that this is the right thing to do and it's kind of a blunt instrument to just put money out there and argue that that money might be better spent in more targeted ways. The big question and we're going to say this so many times over the next two years is what can get through the senate right and roy blunt. Who's a top republican. He's a member. Leadership said on the whole he saw the one point. Nine trillion dollar package is a non starter but it was a package that had a lot of starters in it so i do think that they are hopeful that they can get to some kind of common middle ground. But the you know. Joe biden's not gonna get exactly what he outlined in his bill. It's going to have to kind of go through the sausage making process and maybe break it into parts. Yeah mara a lot of the incoming administration's priorities were previewed. Last night at a white house. Press briefing and i have to say that briefing. I watched it from home looked and sounded a lot different from recent white house. Press briefings well first of all. It happened right and we went for about a year without white house. Press briefings happening at all. But my reaction when i was watching it last night was so normal. That was what i was thinking There's a lot of information. There wasn't a lot of sparring with the press. The first press briefing of the trump era remember was all about crowd. size This is all about what the administration wants to do. It doesn't mean that the press and the and the administration the biden administration will always get along But it was pretty normal and the new incoming press secretary. Jen psaki said that she is committed to transmit information that's accurate and truthful and transparent and not all that information as she said we'll be easy to take it also sounded like she was committing to the return of the regular press briefing. As you noted those did not happen frequently. Yes definitely definitely all right. Let's take a quick break and when we get back we'll talk more about.

"When that was when they said more amazing. See that really seventy. Six percent of the public thinks that Michael Jordan was more amazing than Lebron James. I mean we'll say that you know. Knock on abroad. But what a by biggest takeaways obviously new great and doesn't make watching the footage and US cool because like you said it is just like the way he moves is so fluid and graceful but I had forgotten how charismatic he is. He's yeah exactly the Paul Fight. He is my sees more amazing than run. But I I was just shocked that so many people adapt poll to me even though I have the feeling based on what we're talking about here in what the dial has been around the documentary that this would sort of further polarize the people who think broadside you'll take in site. I was shocked at that. Poll said I think it was seventy six percent of people prefer Jordan and sixty five or years and they'd rather have a drink with Jordan James and sixty percent people that Jordan had a more positive impact off the court. I mean in terms of sheer basketball popularity. I guess I get that but when it comes to like visible and sociopolitical stuff. I don't know how you could possibly say that Jordan. Bigger impact backed off the court. Yeah I mean that's one of the things the fascinating about this whole thing is that charisma is king and Michael Jordan. Being someone telling his own story and being that charismatic has covered up the fact that. I don't feel that this journalism like him having control of the final product and essentially rewriting the narrative history of twenty years of NBA basketball. And you're saying his perspective is the way that it was is really unique but listening to him talk. Listening to the fact that he was able to settle grudges essentially put up. What he said he was going to do is fascinating. It's unique and it's almost like legendary. What makes Michael Michael? But that's able to cover up a lot of the flaws in the documentary and I think is shaped a lot of people's perspective. That I find interesting I agree. I mean I think the take that is. I have admittedly considered to not a ton of like like I watched alternate says but I have not consumed a tunnel like Medicare coverage about the last dance but I would assume because the same knock I sort of had originally watching it that people who are sort of old school capital J. Journalists are not super happy with this because it's not very objective right like not only about Jordan but it makes Jordan the final word on everything right like he is the arbiter adjudicator of everything that goes into the dock. And I totally get why from purely Old School Journalism of objectivity standpoint. People have a problem with that. But then I was thinking about that and like those are the most some of those compelling bits of the documentary right like handing Jordan the IPAD and having him. React to Isaiah Thomas talking about the not shaking their hands are talking Gary Payton shutting down again I get why from an object to standpoint. That is not maybe the the proper way to do it but that was like some of the best stuff right and so. I don't think this is a classic documentary but I think if you take faced I this is GonNa be from Jordan's perspective than you can kinda get past the old notions of what again a capital. J. Journals documentary to be just sort of luxury and Jordan having these incredible commentary. 'cause you haven't seen a comment on those moments in that. That part is super cool. Yeah I think it's a really good way to put it. I think that this was more of a piece about historical memory than actual journalism and Michael was so charming even when he is an asked. Scott morale and a bully and something that would now be sort of canceled in our current culture yesterday. That he doesn't is such like sort of a classic Alpha male and always resulted in a win that it was able to convince guys who would otherwise not considered because of this journalism to take as Gospel. And that's like a really interesting thing and that's like also you know something about Michael Jordan commenting on these moments because the historical memory of Michael Jordan to all of these journalists. They're like these are probably some of the most happy compelling spectacular moments of their career. I mean like the guys that you and I and a lot of people look up to in this industry are guys who were awed by Michael Jordan and then to hear him sort of corroborate all of the Legend and myth making that surrounded him and crop rate them as true from that perspective. I'm sure it was exciting. Even for that totally. Although I do think what area were they seem to have gone like? I felt like okay by episode. Six seven seventy nine. I was like they're pushing a little too hard. Was you know they made they made? It seem like I'm Jay was the cause of you know when Scott Burrell had his our rivers twenty four point game right like they made. It seem like that happen because in Jay was hard on him and like I don't really know how closely tethered those things are You know 'cause a leads to be that felt to me like they're pushing that a little too much but I don't know I mean maybe that is how I think having someone like Jordan on your team like obviously drives you to work harder and want to play better maybe rise to the moment but it just made it seem like he was sort of facilitating factor in everything. Yeah well what's unique about that? Is I think Jordan believe that. I think to his core. He believed that he had to be an ass be great and he thought he had been asked connect with these teammates. Who could in no way understand the pressure that was on him or what he was going through. And I don't think that's correct. I don't think the a legendary Sara Lee made him a great player. I think he was probably great in spite of that. A lot of ways as you've seen with the Tom Brady's the Tim Duncan's the world but it's interesting that we got to look days psychology that he believed that the most emotionally raw moment of the documentary was him sort of confirming that as he broke down in tears. That was the best part of my favorite moment of the die in and go back to what the coverage I have consumed in what I have seen his criticism like there's nothing really near Jordan personalized and that in and I get that one level it's about the nineteen ninety seven ninety eight bold but like that moment where you're actually seeing Jordan. Be Emotional especially after you know curse what we also have new to hear from his own team. It was interesting occurs like you just couldn't connect with your not emotional level to see that emotion like we definitely left you wanting more there. I mean that that to me was like that I think those that was the most compelling in the in the dock there was one other moments that really got into Jordan Psyche. That that was you know brilliant storytelling. I would have wanted more of that. Was they made reference to the point that during his NBA career? He basically was able to function with the level of mindfulness and living in the moment that made him immune from pressure because he was constantly. He said he never feared shot and he hadn't taken yet. Which in my mind is almost anti human nature. That's that's not something I can connect to it but seeing that something that's like we all strive for but that also brought up something that I've been thinking since the documentary finishes that he basically was able to live his entire life from age. Fourteen to thirty five in the moment in the present focusing on each game in demanding excellence from himself and from everyone around him because of this. Mindfulness this mentality but it almost seems like the moment he retired the moment that switch flipped and he didn't the ending that he necessarily wanted going for seven championship. He has been sort of living a meandering life. Living in the past. Since he's almost like the hyper form of Adad in Friday night lights sitting on the sideline a Miller lite with the state championship ring going. We get yourself one of the east to the players. They jog onto the field. I mean even yesterday. He couldn't resist on the last Davis Documentary. Chirping Hornets. Flair is being like yeah. Of course I could beat them one on one day. I wouldn't want to hurt their feelings. Yes yes I mean. I think it's a good point. It's like people always talk about how difficult it is not people but athletes talk about difficult transition that Second Act Ray and obviously it was difficult for Jordan. He twice once was probably. The baseball thing was different. But I think under tiring from the second bowl standing coming back to the wizards shut d like they. That just shows that obviously like any athlete. He was showing with that and to your point since he retired. It's been you know he hasn't been able to win really with the Hornets and so now it's all about how Cli- you know. Make that myth still rain in people's minds but I don't know the mindfulness thing is really interesting because yeah. I was sort of skeptical when they were talking about that. Because it's a nice thing to say. In retrospect in a lines it's constant with how he played obviously zoo so clutch. Just it didn't ring true to me. I don't move like I mean maybe I don't know I no to be MJ. And obviously it's like. He's a complete anomaly in in the human race but like it just seems so difficult and I wonder how much less mindful he would've been if he had social media right like 'cause because one thing I was going to say we were talking about earlier is like He. He's an all time team petty. Hurson right like now. We get on get on K. D. for getting on twitter and chirping at the trolls but like Jordan man. He's so petty like every little slight. He you know he talk about. That listing last night's episode. He would just he. He will motivate him to deal unbelievable things but like if us on twitter and you'd be single people who are saying. I don't know if he would have this this ability to be president or ignore the trolls What he'd be like for the twitter account I mean. He was a real life stark. He was going to every single person he could and telling them. I have this list. I'm GonNa Cross you off one by one until I get to my ultimate goal. I don't think that NJ can exist again. And that's one of the things that some interesting the discourse with him and Lebron and other athletes like the social a world that we live in. It's impossible imperfect. And part of the veneer of Michael Jordan was that he was perfect for so long and how we viewed him in that became real and then there was no imperfections in his on-court gate..

"Everybody it's Mike Ryan welcomed misery crate. Hopefully you are enjoying our new pandemic release strategy which is trying to cater to a listener base.

WanNa hear this interview right. Now with David GILMOUR OF PINK. Floyd otherwise probably would have been a South Beach Session. South each sessions a long interview series this week featuring part one of a two part podcast interview. That'll blow your mind. I'm sorry I'm in Promo Code deal with it. There is a lot going on. Even though there's a pandemic and work may be slowing down for other people. We are working so hard like suge was putting out two episodes of stupidity a week soup potty. Has Tom Brady? And Rory mcilroy in one episode. Oh my God that is worth your time. The downloads are going through the roof. He is working hard. I'm working hard. Dane is working hard. The whole team is working hard. Billy's coming the week after week with a new episode breaking down. Mtv's the challenge which is basically America's sport right now and you heard from Roy last week. We'll have another mystery create episode for you on Friday. This week's episode is of David Gilmour not to be confused with David Gilmour from pink. Floyd David Gilmour is a lobbyist for next. Gen meets now. Obviously you're sports fan. Probably if you listen our podcasts. Although I mean let's be real you know have to be when you listen to our show and as you know mystery crate is made for the die hards. Hopefully you'll find this interview. Interesting David Gilmour of next. Gen meets is a lobbyist. He is presently lobbying DC for funding for his exotic meat companies. See we view things through our sports prison being sports fans and knowing that how affected sports ours probably at the front of many of our minds that and just the peril of not knowing. If we're going to be healthy or not and the financial straights. Okay maybe sports aren't at the front of your minds but I know what's near the back and that's exotic meat. Industry and David Gilmour joins us here on the mystery create interviewed by Dan. To tell you why you should care about these people that are being displaced right now. Not Getting small business loans really enjoy hearing this interview because how many of you have met a lobbyist. This is a first for me. So especially when. That's lobbying for such a peculiar thing in the middle of a pandemic so here is David Gilmour lobbyists extraordinary joining Dan Le Batard. Hope you enjoy it all right so you know. We're bouncing outside of sports every once in a while here because there are very few precious few sports going on right now. That aren't Korean baseball. And we've been pandemic heavy in some of the things that we're talking about daily but I couldn't believe this thing that I was reading about next. Gen Meets Lobbying Congress for a bailout package and you guys have had me recently siding with billionaires even though. I'm being sarcastic about feeling bad for the Warren Buffett's and Micky Arison and the Saudis you guys have gotten on me and here is a company next. Gen meets lobbying Congress for bailout because of course bat sales have plummeted since the pandemic started so allison has gotten in touch with their head. Lobbyist David Gilmour and I guess my first question is how how in good conscience can you ask for a bailout? Given everything that the world is enduring right now as a result of what happened with that. Meet to begin with now. First of all I to correct you. We don't know That this involved at all that's conjecture it could have happened but if there was one Infected bats and someone unfortunately took a bite of it. Well let's If you took a bite of a human being right now you would maybe just as bad off right. I mean disease travels in in Mammals. And so we don't concentrate on that the The possibility that a single bat in fact that a single human Lead to catastrophe. Well we prefer to concentrate on. Is that society? Especially American society is missing out on a whole branch of nutrition and delicacy and in that is the Bat Intended to meet its sustenance. It provides and by the way we can get to this later. If you wish there there are many many other animals that could provide nutrition. They're they're completely ignored in American dining. But Yes we we it next meets. We're we're concentrating on the bat and the neglect. It's been subjected to well. I didn't know that bat meat was a culinary thing until this to be honest with you I I guess I was ignorant. I did not think of people eating bat. This is a successful industry. This who who is buying a lot of bad product. Oh it's it's a global thing it's been established for hundreds of years you know before it was available. Commercially people dined on bats. Just as a regular way of having lunch or It wasn't a. I don't know if anything was considered a delicacy. Two hundred years ago are such things delicacy but Yes we in. America live in a sort of cocoon were not We're not open to. We do believe we did chicken beef and pork. Basically all Americans live on. And we don't we have blinders on its Let me give you an example. In in in Spain for instance there is a long Established eating A restaurant called the Komo's mercy Lagos. I'm pronouncing that correctly. They've been serving bad for about one. Hundred and fifty years David Gilmour as I said here on. Espn radio next. Gen Meets Lobbying Congress for a bailout package. Can you explain to me? What exactly? You're lobbying for David. Well we're I would like to say lobbying. I prefer to consider myself an advocate. And then I do it with a clear conscience because I believe in the nutritional value of bat meat and in the meantime it's not like eating your vegetables. You know it actually is a bit of a delicacy. It's the you know the old saying is. It tastes like chicken. If one likes to say that about virtually everything and tastes like chicken. Well you know bad does taste a little bit like chicken and I I tried to say is sort of a slogan you know it tastes like chicken but with wings and then I quickly realized of course the chickens also have wings and so. That wasn't going to work so I changed it to. It tastes like chicken but with ears and so far. No one has taken me up on. Wanted to use that as a slogan. But I'm just trying to get the ball rolling. You know it's just something that obviously the bats meat suppliers are struggling right now. Because we've got a little bit of a PR crisis you know nutritional value though what is the nutritional value of Bat. Well about the same as Say a mouse it's There's this protein. There's not a lot of meat on a bat as you can imagine. It was extruded her. However you would Explain how you remove the Matt. Meat from a bat a tablespoon full of meat so you need a Unless you just a quick snack a quick burst of energy. You know like if you're taking a break from your soccer game or something. Just take a quick. Oh Quick Nibble if you WANNA make a lot of it. You're you're talking but several if not dozens of bats But the nutritional value is right up there with any other meal so like Jerky like just protein. Yes funny you say that. Bad jerky is something that would try to get moving along. It's it's been around forever. You know people would hang hang bet meat in their cabin. Or what have you in as it dries Then you can store it for a long hike or something or if you forced to leave your village or you're being stalked by some Predator among thinking you know dinosaurs tigers. I don't know how long that Admiral Bats were around back then. I'm getting a little out of my lane but Yes Bat Jerky is a thing next. Gen meet are there other meats other than bat like I again? This is foreign to me. I'm a bit ignorant here so forgive my ignorance but I did not know that bat eating was a thing and next gen meets. Is it limited to bats or are there? Is there other exotic fair? I'm glad you asked me that it. It's there are several species of animals that have been neglected in terms of being looked to for nutrition and sustenance You with a lemur. Lemur is Oh God no yes there. Door -able lemurs adorable ring tailed lemur is one is one source will adorable yes. It's sort of cross machine a monkey in a raccoon. I would say sort of a kind of a stylish raccoon if you will but they're meat is is delicious and no one. Since you're you're right. They are sort of acute or a door and so we don't You know raise them to be slaughtered and turned into meat that that seems curls. The LEMUR meat that the next Gen mean Cells are lower. Lemurs that have passed on naturally emerge that have died of old age. If you will and down I that may sound unappetizing to some people But would you rather them be slaughtered as young? Lemurs or you know or slaughtered. As old. Lemurs again David Gilmour with us on. Espn radio a lobbyist here. Lobbying Congress for a bailout package for the selling of bats as a food for. Next Gen meets David Gilmour. Can you please explain to me? How in good conscience? I believe a lot of people listening to this would be wondering how it is that you can ignore sort of the science on. It's not conjecture when it comes to the Bat. Meet and how this started. Everything is viewed as conspiracy theories beyond the science. Are you saying that it's settled fact that this Corona virus came from the ingestion of Bat. Meat that is what I am saying. Yes I believe that is settled. Fact I don't think I have that wrong Okay well they're like okay. Look let's say that I accept your a bogus theory that it came from an actual gestion of bad meat. Well that happens sometimes. It doesn't if you eat. A bad Dented can of mushroom soup. You might get sick and and you don't do to call for the you know. Eradification of mushrooms is just a single case. That went wrong. If a if a horse bucks you off you don't return with a a machine gun and kill all the horses of I've wandered field here. I didn't mean to discuss killing hundreds of horses But you know what I'm saying a okay. Let's say that a bad a- bad bat though the one one bad apple in the barrel caused this Little problem we have here. Well that's going to.

"So. I kind of have enjoyed these interviews that we have done and I kind of haven't because they've gotten a little awkward with the eccentric former Southeast Tulsa strength and conditioning coach Tim Journeys If you haven't been following his journey it's an interesting one. It began doing an interview on our show about some questionable training techniques that he was doing during the pandemic eight nine one one calls. He ended up getting fired saying that. I took him out of context. And I was guilty of Gotcha Journalism. But he is asked to come back on the show because he is saying he's now got a success. Stories got a barnstorming football team. And they he says are seven and one fourteen players who had college and pro careers derailed by what he says is fake news and Gotcha journalism so tim journeys returns with us here on ESPN radio. Frankly I'm surprised you keep coming on with us because the last interview we had. You didn't seem very happy and you blamed me for the fact that you've been fired.

"Businesses. That don't want to open but feel like they have to also businesses do open the feel like they can't make much money if they would at their normal capacity. I don't think our customers are ready to come flooding back in the doors. Let me reopen. Are we able to seat fifty or sixty or seventy people when you have to have some sort of social distancing cetera? Well the answer to all this supposed to be the paycheck protection program. Pp This is that loan program where small business supposed to be able to go to the bank get alone get their employees paid. That program ran out of money and this morning in the next few hours. It's back open for business. Abc's Liz lessees been following. How all these twists and turns affecting small businesses around the country. So Liz first off. Let's talk about the planet self. What happens today by ten thirty eastern this morning the paycheck protection program? We'll be back up and running. It ran out of money on April sixteenth and since then small businesses who have been struggling have been hoping for a chance to get more money so that they can pay their employees and keep up and running and not close down for good during this crisis. We didn't lay a single person off and that was our plan. And that's what we hope to do. Now we're going. My Gosh. I actually might have to lay people off this morning. The lenders who are part of this program will start accepting applications once again. In fact there's a backlog of applications there could be as many as a million that just didn't get in in time everything in pretty timely manner It just wasn't good enough so those will likely be at the front of the line for a lot of these banks and we're expecting a lot more applications brand new applications from small business owners. Who for one reason or another weren't able to get their applications in the first time wells. Fargo told her. The bank had reached capacity and wouldn't accept any more requests. She was told to try other banks but most banks are taking care of their own customers. I really feel the government. The banks have failed a small business so in the cares act was passed. Initially that was two trillion dollars. There was three hundred fifty billion dollars in there for small businesses. This time around three hundred. Ten billion dollars is allocated for small businesses. And they're trying to make sure that some of that money goes to the smallest of the small businesses folks who don't have relationships with banks already so that they can avoid some of the problems that they encountered the first time. Karbi didn't get US thirty five thousand dollar loan but roots hospitality. Group did the owner of Ruth. Chris Steakhouse reportedly got twenty million dollars from the P P P funding. We exit there. Was this really bad. Look early on right or small businesses. Were were struggling to get loans. They were like hey. I can't find a bank to help me out but then you had these big corporations getting millions of dollars. Is that still going to be happening with this program? So they hope not the way that the small business administration defines a small business for this program is anyone who employs five hundred or fewer employees. Now obviously that's a vast range you are mom and pop is just a couple of employees versus a huge business with four hundred ninety nine employees. You probably have a lot fewer resources at your disposal with lawyers. Accountants and one of the biggest disadvantages is we're not high receivables business and the other reason that those big businesses were able to get a piece of the action the first time around was because they could show that individual locations of their companies employed fewer than five hundred people. That's a high end steak house which you know is probably not open yet. We still are. So that's why you saw places like Ruth's Chris and shake shack huge publicly traded corporations. That can probably weather this storm better than a lot of businesses out there taking advantage of this program. How are we going to ensure that those small businesses the small restaurants cafes bars who did not get the money last time this time? Well as I said you know there are a million a million of these companies that did get it. That are very small working with the bank so this time around just before. The president signed the package into law. Small Business Administration put out new guidelines. If you pay back the loan right away you won't have liability to the SBA and treasury. They basically gave publicly traded companies until may seventh to give back any money that they were given the first time around saying that. When push comes to shove we all can agree that if you are a big enough to be a publicly traded company you just are not suffering to the same degree as the businesses that this program was intended to help. Okay so so then. Let's look at the business owners then if like really small businesses. Say I'M IN OKLAHOMA CITY? My governor said Hey. It's time to reopen. My mayor. Says I don't know it might be dangerous SUV owner. I'm thinking like Hey. I want my employees to be safe. I don't have a like a ton of guidance. Not Positive what the standards are here but knowing need the money coming in if these employees are going to have jobs anymore. So let's let's go but what do you do if you're worried about people's safety at your business there's so many unknowns out there eight we all are facing them right now. In small business owners are no different. You thought the toilet paper situation was crazy. Wait till three hundred million people WANNA haircut at the same time. There's a lot of concern out there. About what could happen if someone comes into your restaurant comes into your your retail store and ends up getting sick. Are you going to be liable? Could you be sued? The answer to that question is we're not sure and so that's a conversation that's happening right now. The top White House Economic Adviser Larry. Cudlow said on Friday. He doesn't think that small businesses should held liable if that were to happen and a lot of Republicans agree with him a lot of groups that represent these small businesses the Chamber of Commerce the National Federation of Independent Business. They're all pushing Congress to make sure that in the next round of funding and you can expect there's going to be an extra funding to keep this economy up and running that that's in the legislation and that small businesses are protected from that kind of liability in. We heard Democrats over the weekend. Sable now you're giving employers a free pass but you also heard kudlow say you know. Employees should have the right to work in a safe environment so the question will be as can you have it both ways here continuing to see how small businesses approach this. Lizard Lessee in Washington. Thank you thank.

I get interrupted by post office. Dude was the fact that there's like no risk for going after after most of these types of servers. I I love the fact that it's so as using a billion Jenkins right so Jenkins's is your you know your integration software off where no one no one how many people actually go in and actually look at the processes running on the Jenkin servers when they're spinning up and spinning down these CI service well if it's the if it's the same if it's the same people that run J. boss servers. I can tell you nobody nobody if they're already putting you. Jenkins surveys on the Internet. There aren't doing anything in. It's all your light line stuff right so Jenkins. You it will bring in your source source information cord whatever uh-huh to be born only do testing all that kind of thing on the other end spits out a package that you can know distribute to the world right. That's what Nigel I learned how how to build a Jenkins server right on aws cloud. That's why it's on the Internet. It's not my fault Yep. Yep I know I this and this is using. This is exploiting a year old. CB though right. How old is that see? I don't know whether to become out two two thousand eighteen when it's got a lot of digits towards the end of the young five yeah number. CV V numbers are no longer sequential so this one is dated. A twelve hundred two thousand eighteen will security advisor from Jenkins as data twelve five five eighteen yeah so talk on your ninety days before that is when it was you know probably reported so the the the way to avoid this guy's on your hats. Okay Guam people should patch Come on especially your Jenkins server of all God. Damn things that with don't don't put it on the Internet and then keep it up today at highway that because it's kind of important a maybe if you build something and you put a server on the Internet and there's a little the thing in the back of your mind. It's like man. I'm kind of putting this on the Internet. Look you should at least patch. It like giving yourself. Shot not make an attempt yeah. It's written in bashing. It's written in python like it's guys talking about the part where it looks for all the other miners here's and kills him off because I thought that was extra kind of fun also make sure that it gets all of the resources what other guys carving away ten percent. Deca you were relax. Your mind now seems reasonable short. Hey if you put something on the Internet don't patches puts off where to make themselves money if you're okay with that and here's the ultimate thing about this stuff there's I don't I want to say it's victimless. Put like it causes. No pain like I said in the past ransomware is the best thing that's ever happened to security because it causes immense pain and you were forced to deal with the problem. You can't just wipe the system. Reload move on with your life like you know you have to deal with this. This is the exact opposite exact opposite exact opposite. Yeah I think as long as as long as it's smart right and it Kinda keeps it just under under the radar of affecting the system too much then nobody's ever GonNa see it right but I do want to move on enjoy like what's the difference in the current sauce and they got a couple of billion spam every now and then right like it's Nikki money and the other one's cryptocurrency yeah so I want to move on to some actual a grey market way to break because I got a question go. What's the question what animal eight your package. I don't know that's what he would. It be like side. You get something got into it like quarter. The blocks is gone. I have a normal life. We're packing. Only why is it everytime we tax. There's like you can see a little teeth marks. There must have been like I never had some animal eat. My frigging Amazon packages is the armadillo is Craig is that's what it is because malene tastes res. Life is abnormal in every way everything he does. Everything he does is just just like a disaster all like hey. I got a new phone but I crashed. It is brand new. I just took it out of the box and I touched it yeah but it's up to say like an example for you. It'd be like Hey I got in the car and I started it and the engine fellow the bottom of this but the car still runs the cars nowadays don't four Oh. I'd say listen. That's an argument to tell you got did you. You guys are on Never Mind Okay the job in the opener right there I was GONNA say on key base and they have no however their own crypto currency and they're giving away free crypto currency of like key base again deller right right and you subscribe to the new bear say you get like twenty by twenty dollars a month at the moment free. I'm just saying store not deller lumine Subscription Service Takebe. No no no no if if you go so if you have keyboards bay they there's also now a cryptocurrency this associated with keyboards you subscribe right. You're not paying any money doing near you know yes I. I would like to use this trip to our currency. Drop in about twenty dollars worth of Krypton in your account every month for the next however many so you could like I say this all honesty we have smartest species on this planet built in Uttar Utter. Hell for us to limited obsolete absolutely so I do want to get back on track okay. I saw this on our Arnett sack or something week. The don't do software. Did you see this. Oh that website okay so we use as you hear a lot of people use your it's a two factor authentication solution right so you log into the thing and you get up and do ask you whether you want a phone call a push message such to the APP or a text message and you pick Wolfgang you WANNA use for two you know two factor authentication into whatever service you're trying to get access to use the APP on my watch. My phone makes it yep. Watch out me super easy and just get a little push in New York. That was me and you get into thing there's no way you can do it and that's to add a phone number. Bernal's you a text message or presumably phone call and that's where this service comes in this service and there have been others like it before I have seen they provide you a phone number voip number of some kind and you put that in as your dual authentication number and I basically automates the process you use hit call me and calls the number you provided that number automatically authentication for you like pushes the button or does the thing whatever it is on the phone call so basically defeats the purpose of having to factor on the purpose of two factor authentic does worse in that like. I hope the person that put this together gets hit by car. Wow that's it's kind of hard for this guy I would. I would fire the every employee I found using this absolutely setting your password password. Yeah I would absolutely not even hesitate the be done. GET YEP NO I. This is stupid. I was is I gotta get some water. You put two factor authentication in to secure your network and and then you're like hey automation this why don't actually have to it takes three seconds. Just click on the button but if you're a sales guy your phone dies. It's a hassle all right. I mean at least you can understand why stupid people might want to do this. In order to streamline their activity the thing is I think the people who are GONNA fall for. This are the ones who don't get that big picture picture yeah right. They don't understand why multi factor was put in place. They don't understand their password. Might have in common is an eighty five billion breach. I think the thing that they think they know better than Craig Nick Right. They think yes your security. People who are trying to protect all those resources and stuff. There's a very good reason why you two factor authentication into place and and the other thing that you do is you make sure that you've got to factor on the things that need it and I think where it gets into vical more people get tired of it is when you they he put on everything everything they do needs two factor authentication and people can get a bit tired of it that it's gone like you if you use it say to log log in using your VPN for example you have to Pfizer off on that and then you know you're in tier systems. Do you actually need to factor off after that most of the stuff that people they probably not right. It's just some things yes you're. GonNa need internally as well to do some things but not everything right so if you kind of avoid people we're just getting burnt out on US often regular Joe Blow sales guy kind of log into to on his VPN to get whatever needs doesn't probably doesn't ever need to add to all to fight on the inside right well. That's my question. I don't so their own material says this as you up to three hours per month but the service missile can cost fifty dollars by presumably a month to use a service. I guess so a is at fifty dollars. A is it really three hours. It is fifty dollars worse. Those alleged three hours to like it. Does anybody really seeing value prop here. I don't understand we now. There isn't one of course not no this stupid people who don't understand the problem. I mean this. This is why being a C. So is so hard right. You have these swarms of users who think that they get get it because they see live from their one little window but what they don't understand the ramifications of their actions right by eliminating factor from effectively. Let's assume Nigel's correct and we only put in place where we have the crown jewels locked away while they're removing that layer of security and they're basically making your most secure two pieces of your facility `security frank game right and so I think you know the thing that I would convey as an action item for people who do deploy things correctly like that is that you need to have conversations with your users and explain to them why that extra layer of security exists right obviously. Maybe you don't want to like get into like obviously you don't want it. You know an outline you were going to break in here here and here but the thing is that you you know if you're doing this using a system that basically pretends has to be you and says yea good to go right into the all silently fully ben information being able to do that if somebody has has access to that system and let's say they've also mind your data on the Internet so large and they have you're using 'em on your password now and they know what you you use it for and and they have the information in this system over here. That's doing the two factor altarpiece fall. You know. They've solved all of that. The problem that they he had once were they couldn't get in even if they had you use new password because they were unable to do the to Pfizer off part. No they have that information as well and now it's. It's is back to your hey. We're good to go right so somebody needs to take a look see. Somebody needs to take a look at this..

"So I'm at weekly fifty dot com. And it's the word fifty not the number fifty. But that's my blog. And that's where you can find the most you'll get all the text. The text right up and you'll get the the photo in the audio commentary from that there's a link to go to YouTube, my YouTube channel is just weekly fifty. So I suppose if you Google YouTube weekly fifty to find that. There's also the my all my photos are hosted on flicker, actually. And if you talk about long-term, maybe one day, if I get enough Michael is not YouTube subscribers, but if I accidentally get enough YouTube subscribers then I would like to get a flicker pro membership and use YouTube income to pay for flicker pro very so that a long that's a goal, right? I do that. I think that's an attainable goal there. And so I my photos on flicker because it's a it's a great way you actually interviewed the gentleman from smug mug to Stor. Yeah. And I've been with flicker from like for ten years. Flickers awesome. I hope they never go away. And it sounds like they're just only gonna get better. Now that smug smug my bottom. Absolutely. And my photos are on flicker as well. So anything on weekly fifty is just pulling from my flicker, and it's just using the imbed code from flicker, and that helps with bandwidth on my blog too. So I don't have to get a Bill from my my blogging provider gives me I know all about that. Flicker can pay for that. It's it's it's okay, right. It's a catch twenty two having having a large amount of traffic and then paying for that draft. Now, I got to pay for it. I mentioned one of the thing that regarding the way in which weekly fifty helped me and ultra make this quick. I on a trip to Nebraska recently. I was I was driving along on this backwards. Back roads highway. No one else was there. And I saw the sun was setting. And I thought I'm going to pull over and take a picture that sunset, and I just sat there for about fifteen twenty minutes watching the sunset and just taking it all in and my I specifically had weekly fifty mind. And I thought I'm going to get a really good photo for my blog. And as a result, I got to experience a sunset amid western winter sunset like I haven't sat through in years, probably decades. And it was so cool that I forced myself to do that. And I would have never done that if it weren't for weekly fifty and I can look back at previous sunset photos. I've taken put on the blog and. The one I took earlier in January, which I think goes live on March twenty seventh. I can I can tell you. It's the best sunset photo I've ever taken. But it's probably not the best ones that photo I will ever take because there's always more sunset photos to take. And so having the blog has allowed me to have some experiences that I would never have had otherwise just because it's in the back of my mind, and I'll think wait a second. I gotta pull my bike over and take a picture this boombox on the side of the road because I've got weekly fifty. So it's it's been really cool to have that. And I hope other people would have that as well. If they start a similar project. It gives you a reason right. A reason for your photography versus you know, we put on Instagram and get a couple of comes up. You've added a couple of layers to that where it's education, it's inspiration. And it's an ongoing it's an ongoing project. So I think it's brilliant kudos men. Congratulations on on doing the fantastic. Like, I said, I'm stealing it from you. I will credit you. I'm going to do this. I'm doing a weekly something. I don't know what it's going to be. This is great. So. Okay. So we'll Simon rings. Thank you so much for coming on. I appreciate your time. I'm inspired. And I'm excited to get started. So we'll leave it there. So you have a you have a good evening. And I'm looking forward to your next posts on the weekly.

"More can I learn about photography, and no special skills are required to do any of this. Which is why I think it's it's the type of project at anyone could really do and benefit from I agree in. But the the last question I'll throw at you is a curveball. So get rid of breaches we go. It's not really capable. But so you're you've been doing this for six years you're going to continue what what does the in game? Look like or or is the journey the destination. You know, is is Simon ring smooth going to become a professional photographer in your holy grail is to be shooting in a New York studio with any liebowitz or are using happy like continuing, and, you know, adding a brick to the wall every week. So my endgame my my long game actually is when I retire. I'm thirty. I turned thirty nine next week when I retire. I want to have built up enough photography clients and experience that I can ease into that. And I'm talking like twenty twenty five years from now that's a long game something my wife, and I seriously talk about where our kids are in elementary school. And over time we'd like to build up enough word of mouth where when they're in high school people are coming to us for their senior photos on a regular basis, and then our kids won't need as much of our attention daily. And we can we can take some of the time that we spend kind of micro managing our kids because they're so young we won't need that as much, but Lee, but we still want to be involved in their lives and photography would hopefully be a good way to do that. And the weekly having weekly fifty is a way for me to continue to sustain that interest. Sure. We'll go through dry spell's where I don't get any clients. Which is fine because that's not the point of Stevens creek photography. We don't I make like three hundred bucks a year off that but weekly fifty keeps my photography skills sharpened. And if I've been maintaining that just like the photo of the infant, then I I'm sort of ready to meet that challenge of taking on more clients and doing more actual paid work. You're keeping your keeping the blade nice and sharp. So that whenever you can you can use it. Well, we sort of buried the lead here in terms of you know, where people can go to see this body of work that you're building. So fills in on that if people if people want to see the weekly fifty where are you on where's the blog located in the name of the YouTube channel and all that stuff?.

"Like, I got a set of close up filters, which basically turn any lens into a macro lens. She can get these super cool shots of like insects, and and office supplies lips. And. Pence for your keyboard? Her. And you can you can screw these on their like thirty bucks for a set of these. They're super cheap. So I got to seize filters. And for the next like two months all I did was literally explore close up filters. And so it's an interesting story. I spent. I think some are two thousand fifteen or twenty sixteen I got these close up filters and for a long time on weekly fifty. I was using these close ups and they come in plus one plus two plus four plus ten based on how much they magnify. And so I was learning all about these close up filters and learning that if I use a plus ten I can get really close to something. But then the depth of field is super shallow. Right. And so I got to be careful, and I can't use a wide aperture. I gotta shoot at like eight otherwise the depth of field is out of control. And I started to learn more about these close up filters. And I I knew I was a lot more comfortable using these because like one hundred percent because of weekly fifty fast forward to January twenty nineteen friend of mine had a new baby. And she said, well, you take some photos. So I said sure went over to her house I because of weekly fifty and I mean this directly because weekly fifty I knew where to look for lighting. I knew where to position the baby. I knew what to do for like what gear to bring which I shot the whole thing with my fifty millimeter lend course, and I wanted to get some shots of the fingernail like the baby's little hand holding mama's finger, and you get those really close up shots. And I one hundred percent of that experience of getting those photos of the fingernails was due to the close up filters and experimenting with those on my weekly, fifty blogs. So I knew going into this shoot. I was gonna use my plus four close up filter as going to need a high ISO because I was going to have to shoot at a smaller aperture of f five point six so going into this baby shoot because I had done so much on weekly fifty with my close up filters, just like flower petals and an office supplies. I knew what to do going into this infant photo shoot. And there's a lot of instances like that over the years where I can specifically point to an experience I did on the blog. And how I and then look at later, and how that has made a demonstrable improvement in my photography it. I never see those coming. But it's so cool to have that happen where just because of my continual use of my camera, and my gear I've improved on my photography and I can demonstrate that in the photos, I take now. So it's it's really been cool to see that. I know there's a twist guest frequent Twitter gas, Don, come rich. Yeah. His niche is snowflakes, and he has like the most amazing photos in the world of snowflakes, and I thought well, there's a topic for weekly fifty if it if only I lived in a place that got snow.

"So here's the deal eventually because of marital issues or like a general lack of interest in ordinary life in despite his lack of sailing experience bona decided he should turn to piracy in the summer of seventeen seventeen here's what the smithsonian magazine has to say about it's inexplicable move to a life of crime stead bona had no knowledge of seafaring having sailed only as a passenger so he's never he's never even never even sailed he's only been a passenger moreover he had no apparent reason to rage against the establishment bono was born in the sixteen eighty s in barbados and according to the transcript of his seventeen eighteen trial had the advantage of liberal education in quote after retiring from the army with the rank of major bona bought an estate and settled in as a member of respectable society where he spent a decade raising a family until he suffered some kind of mental break he just broke bad went full walter white a contemporary account of bonus careers suggested that quote some discomforts he found in the married state in quote led to quote this humor of going pirating in quote but it seems unlikely that nagging wife alone could be enough to drive lawabiding gentleman to piracy so in summation apparently this dude with either so bored or he just snapped or his wife was such a raging pain in the ass that he said fuck it i no longer want to be a normal rich dude i'm going to become a pirate that i respect that is insane so with zero fucking knowledge of shipboard life he didn't let that stop him from contracting a local shipyard to build him a sixty ton sloop which he quipped with ten guns and he named it the revenge this was obviously a weird asked move most pirates either seized their ships by mutiny or by boarding them or by converting a privateer vessel into a pirate ship this guy just.
