Interview with Dr. Tim Persons, Chief Scientist at Government Accountability Office
"Our guest today is dr tim persons. Who is the chief scientist. Managing director of the science technology assessment and analytics team at the us government accountability office also known as the gao. So hi tim. Thanks so much for joining us today. I kathleen Me on it's great to be with you. And ron once again. Yeah we are so excited to have you with us today for folks that have been following us. Tim was also are september. Twenty twenty speaker at our ai in government event and he was one of the keynotes at machine learning life cycle conference so we will link to both of those in the show notes in case you would like to watch them in more detail. But i wanna start this podcast today in case folks don't know you To help you spend some time introducing yourself to our lists and tell them a little bit about your background in. Yes so happy to do that. So as you said in your introduction. I am the chief scientist of the gao. Where the largest of the congressional or the legislative branch agencies in the us government and we have a staff about Thirty two hundred Maybe a little bit more in terms of Full time equivalents there but our main role is to to be the oversight or also called the congressional watchdogs by the way For the us congress. So we're Known as the auditors. We have a lot of access the federal information and so on across a wide array of departments and agencies and so on an issues which actually makes it ideal the tien have conversations about a i And so that's what i've been doing with. Gao since two thousand eight but also recently. We stood up a new team. It's geos newest. Team is called the science technology assessment in analytics team and that's significant because Especially for ai. Because the second a and that's as analytics and a is really a statistical analytics and decision sciences with respect to a machine so i work across the whole. Federal government supporting. Gao and lead a team. That does a lot of oversight insight and foresight work in the science and technology area. Especially so that's a little bit of the background For today thank you you know. I think that's really interesting. Because people the average person here in the united states but probably worldwide does not really understand the mechanism by which large governments or even small governments work and these levels of oversight and trying to understand if the dollars that they're spending taxpayers or getting applied and appropriated properly and used to the value that that they're supposed to so. It's a really interesting place to be. And of course this is an ai. Podcast we're going to talk about how. Ai connects to all of that right. And i think that's one of the the interesting questions we have for you. Maybe i just looking at more broadly. I know we'll a little bit more deeper into a. Is it relates specifically to oversight but i think just certain at a at a broad brush from where you said looking across the government may be looking seeing how other agencies are using technology and using tax dollars. You know how do you what do you see as some of these interesting opportunities interesting. Applications unique opportunities that the public sector maybe in general not even just in the us has around using artificial intelligence. Yeah great question ron. We could spend now until the rest of the year talking about that one. That's that's a broad Very good question of course Happy to be too brief on that. But i think Really what a is bringing here is Really just the framework of thinking about The future of government. I think the future is in one sense the now and they're still part of the public sector of the not yet and i really do think that what is is bringing out particularly especially as we sit in the middle still of our pandemic that we hope will end soon. But really i think about the government roles of enhancing both capabilities and services. So i think those are the two key things to start a conversation with. Ai about capabilities and services and the reason. I say that because there's so much of the government that has changed over the last century When you think about it It really so much of the mission now is really a service or thing We also think about. Of course the what. I'll call the more tactile government that we we can see kinda we could feel we it's You know this is ranging from law enforcement to the military to One of the most beloved institutions are The us park service. Like whenever we go to one of america's many great parks you know we see the government in that way and yet in this day and age especially in the digital age us so much is about doing services. How do we get those Stimulus checks out in a time of economic distress. And how do we do that reliably so that. It's not wasting taxpayer dollars. It's not a fraudulent That were wise with the. You know the national fisk and things like that and so i think Really the way to think about a is starting with those sort of two things The services in that that That ladder sense of what i was talking about in this sort of their capabilities. Which is really where you wanna be with respect to law enforcement or military or other things and you want our capabilities to be more resilient. More robust into out compete Any potential Challenging nation state say to national security so those That's that's just the the the way i strongly advise doing that If only to ground the conversation. I and what does it return to do and accomplish. How do we best express our national values and And not start initially technology which i fear often begins with sort of a fear narrative right the idea of has been around for over a century. Here you know robots and things like that and it runs and jumps To the loss of control fear that we have the fear of the unknown fear the robots gonna take over our lives etc. That kind of thing. Which i i. Don't think at the end of things with a clear. Eyed look in with a cautious optimism. I think is is much more of the order of the day for this technology.
Magnets, The Hidden Objects Powering Your Life
"Okay jeff brumfield. Where does our journey into the world of magnetism begin. It begins with a call to carlos. And a guy named tim murphy. They both work at the national high magnetic field laboratory in tallahassee florida. Normally you know. I do research and i learn about things but this time i just i just brought some bar magnets thought i would let you. That's all we do here so they just you know they're bigger and they give us money for it so expensive too. Yeah and they're painted. We paint them. They're so ready for this interview. They were born ready for this interview. These folks work with magnets all day long. Carlos heads the k. Twelve education programs for the lab. Tim is a physicist there. And like carlos was saying earlier they really feel like magnets need respect. I guarantee you that whatever direction you're looking right now unless you're in the wilderness. Right now there's probably a magnet in your line of sight and you just don't know it well and if you're you're in the wilderness you're standing on the biggest magnet that we have which is the earth the earth is a giant magnet with a pole and the south pole and where that magnetism comes from kind of complicated so for today. We're just going to stick to smaller baghdad's like the ones we use in our daily lives. Jeff i'll be honest. I don't really know what makes a magnetic field magnetic field. So how would you describe that which is kind of fascinating. Because you've turned yourself. Into the shortwave fisk there's gaps in my knowledge the only god what is a magnetic field exactly well so magnetic fields like i just said you know based on the field. Actually they're often said to north and the south pole and right opposite poles attract and light poles repel. So magnets can pull each other together. Push each other part in actually magnetism itself is half of fundamental force a called electromagnetism which also includes electric fields. But what i think is really fascinating is aside from gravity. Magnets are really the only fundamental force that we can just experience an encounter on a regular basis right and we can kind of see this magnetism action when we're playing around with magnets and they stick to certain metals right. Yeah yeah i mean the whole metal magnet thing is kinda complicated carlos. Tell you that everybody comes up. I see on. Tv shows all the time even the education tv shows. They say magnets metal. And i'm like no you got it wrong again. There's only three medals of her naturally magnetic iron nickel and cobalt. And what carlos means there is that there are only three medals that be permanent magnets that hold their magnetism forever and never other metals can stick to magnets but then there are a lot of medals. They can't so we just moved to. A new house has a stainless steel fridge. And guess what like all our fridge. Magnets don't work on this fridge anymore. so what makes them materials magnetic and others not so much well it actually all has to do with electrons. Oh our friends the electrons. Of course these are. The negatively charged particles in adams and when they flow they create electricity. That's right and whenever electrons move in in particular when they spin around something they generate a magnetic field as well as an electric field so magnetic fields have to do with spinning electrons exactly so the electrons are spinning around the atom and that makes like a little magnetic field but then in a permanent magnet. What happens is all. The atoms are facing the same direction. Imagine all these atoms lined up in a row and they kinda wanna do what their next neighbor is doing. So if their neighbor is pointed up right there magnetic moment is up than the one next to him says. Hey up is the the direction so they go up as well. So now you end up with a macroscopic magnetic field because all of these atoms are kind of lined up with their magnetic moments so all of these atoms facing the same direction is what creates one. Big magnet exactly. That's how permanent magnets work like the magnet. Cystic to your fridge. All the atoms in that baghdad are lined up in the same way and they make this big magnetic field that polls the magnet against your fridge and keeps it there. But then there's another kind of magnet and tim the guy you just heard there he actually works with this one. It's called an electromagnet for electro magnets. We actually don't care about the spin of the electron what we care about is the

U.S. Unemployment Claims Fell Last Week
"The number of americans filing jobless claims fell slightly last week. World's kristen flavin reports the labor department says new filings. Two seven hundred ninety three thousand down from eight hundred twelve thousand the week before but thursday's government report also showed an increase in the total number of americans who are receiving unemployment aid including through extended benefit programs all told more than twenty million people were receiving benefits in the week that ended january twenty third. That's the most recent data available and that reflected a sharp rise from just under eighteen million the week before part of that increase likely reflects a rush of claims that came after washington extended to federal aid programs just after

"Have gone for robert fisk too. I got much criticized saying that. Including by a close associate of israel in support of israel should never have done. But you you covered it quite well by just showing the picture and say this is what you might go through but mostly i have not been badly hurt. That was the worst over been hurt and compared to that kind of thing and the dangers. You do see and you'll film shows a dangerous very well. I don't care what words people chuck at me. I have no interest. And i went into it having learned of the of the vitriol and even amongst your fellow foreign correspondents the things that people say you have a lot of rumors around you obviously and about who you are and i think i've been accused of just about every secret service in the middle east and the united states includes israel by the way. But you just have to say forget it. I'm not interested. You like everything on social media you pour it into the waste bin from your carry on working. That's it exactly. And i didn't know whether the most other films i've been involved in wouldn't touch that element the fact that people for political reasons will claim that you're looking for dictators that you'll save money by the by mossad egyptian security services why they would collaborate hiring me. I don't know but there's no point in trying to reply to it and so my just chuck it out and you went has not even al jazeera so the response to that vitriol was theft. Is the eyewitness filmmaker making a film about you was. That was all bullshit. Actually a lot of that all of it. Because i was seeing somebody who is really guided by this this journalistic integrity your definition of journalism. You know on the side of those who suffer. Well it's actually not so much my definition. It's mirror haas course marya fine. Israeli journalist had mud for many years was a personal friend of mine. And i went to talk to her and she was happy food or come along and i wanted to see what the so worst bit of the west bank where the israeli is and she was the first person many years before you came along with your camera rectal and said to me that i said look with journalists in the middle east other first witnesses to history and she said no. They're not robert. Our job is to monitor the centers of power especially when they go to war. And especially when it's on the basis of ally. I also look with which she mind meeting yamane to raid and then we would just chat normany and you do your usual following on violence and i think that her account of her own wife daughter of holocaust survivors and a very brave holocaust mother who gave herself up to the guest arpaio to prevent the massacring all villages and bosnia boston again and she speaks very powerfully in front of the wall. And i think that's one of the most moving parts of film. And i think she she will be the person who most people remember not bob or anyone else who fought in the film. There's another quote. I wrote down from the film. You can correct me if i've taken this out of context but you you're talking about the the act of journalism and you say mostly it doesn't make the slightest bit of difference in what. The newspaper publishes in terms of. Its is as skating. Expose gonna get the government to yet. The prison door doesn't as whatever you right. Well this early there are times when you could point to your reporting making a small difference or maybe a big difference. I can think of one but it is at least twenty years ago. When i was able to prove the videotape that an israeli drone aircraft was filming the scene of a massacre at possibly change the results of the israeli election. That followed brought a more right-wing prime minister to power so it wasn't a victory for me but i think we're your film sort of almost promotes. This problem is when we go in the film and it was. this is seen. What good filmmaking works. I had found some documents in the basement of a bombed out building in aleppo which had been used by the nostra al qaeda group. These were effectively terrorists in the west of course and there's a lot of other people and they showed they by chance left there and there were documents connected to a mortar shipment which had left the factory in bosnia. Now they didn't go from bosnia to the middle that they must have been sent to the islamist groups and it had on the name of the guy who signed it off in in central bosnia. So let me just pause here if anyone's gotten lost in the all the names here. Essentially this is tracking weaponry yes. I'm fascinated by. Who sends weapons to kill people so then off we go to bosnia them an amazingly without disturbing the finding i found the man and degrade young just walked gently behind me and you actually see him knowing the cameras saying. That's my signature. It was the saudis. We sent them to an the great thing. The film is you see the discovery of how weapons reach the middle east through a third party in this case the saudis deny it of course and i thought well nato must take an interest in this. Nato wouldn't comment the saudis scholley admit. Now we've got the documents they said it was rubbish. Nothing happened. I went privately to nato office and i said look better deal with this. This factory sent there's off and the private reply was yeah we know about. That's my point you see here was exclusive story. What you see is me writing for the independent. Not working him and you got it all on film and it's all hail and it didn't make a damn bit of difference. That's what i mean after decade after decade of feeling putting your work in heart and intellect into these things and and filling. It doesn't make a difference. How do you reckon with that. So in your look. One of the things i thought when i first saw the film in beirut a week ago little tiny screen and i always ask myself. What did they think of it. I don't know what he thinks. My first reaction was got. How irritating fiscus he walked on and on and on. But i did realize it water. What a great job. It is to do because i saw my own enthusiasm right back in the days. When i was in belfast. Which i wouldn't your phone would do what you do. And you see me saying and thinking the same things so two years ago i what a lucky i happened to have this job. That's what the phone settlement..

"The film. There's a clip where he's in the bookshop six hundred something and now. You're fast forward today. You're on page one thousand five hundred. Sixty two very readable books. I have talked about the film. So you've covered a lot of tragedy and the and the film is covering tragedies that it's still ongoing one thing that struck me in the film. You say you can't report tragedy if you're having a mental breakdown meaning you've had to professionally protect yourself. Maybe keep a distance. But i wanted to dig into that because because also i think to person doesn't get to choose when they have a mental breakdown when you take on board so much death in horror. I wonder how you feel like you've been able to manage that. Well i think first of all. I think that covering the story. The middle east is a bit like being historian. But you see it with your own eyes. You don't have to go through the archives. But i think possibly slightly misread what i meant when i was talking like that. What i meant was that some journalists i knew very tragically. One of them is committed suicide. Some years ago have been so overwhelmed by what they see what they've witnessed and this guy was a very strong character that i think that if a journalist feels he can't take anymore well he should leave. I mean you can become. The poetry correspondent become the political editor. But don't think the something manly about staying on in wars. I have to admit and maybe this sounds bad. I am not a very emotional person. I get very angry with people who are responsible and we include quite a number of western leaders as well as the ones in the middle east. I get angry when i see lies told about the millions which are which clearly lies. Because i see what's happening with my own but that's the only emotion i really allow myself. I've got the privileged privilege watching history. Cursed that may be and my job is not to start weeping for the dead is to tell you about them and say who might be responsible. So i don't have nightmares. I can go out to dinner after seeing something terrible. Because it's i'm a professional journalist. Do you think you can decode anything more about your personality that allows the protects you from every nightmares looking back and watching his film. Shortly i realized how important my dad was. My father was much older than my mother. He was born in eighteen ninety nine and he was a soldier. In the first world war he was in the third battle of the psalm. And at the end of that war he wanted to be a professional soldier in the british empire. He wanted to join the workers and he was ordered to shoot an australian soldier who joined a british regiment and had drunkenly shot dead british motion policeman in paris and he said to me he refused the order. He wouldn't shoot fellow. Soldier didn't save the guy by the way he was shot. And when i look back at it now. I think and i say in the film. We're when you see him in the film. And i said you know that was the best thing he ever did in his life. He refused the orders. He didn't go along with what he was told to do. Or say or report. If you see what. I mean i think that probably has a lot to do with me. I think you should In a way. I didn't realize until i saw the film. I want to ask about the the balance between professional and personal in the film. There's a moment where roure mentions that. He's married to a journalist. But that's all we ever hear about about that and I wonder what you were hoping to achieve. Even what robert wanted to lead to inter out. Sure i mean. I can speak on that and i'm sure you can. You can add to it. I think the point was. I think going into making the movie that it was going to be similar. I think one. I took some inspiration from a film. A few years ago manufacturing consent by about the film. Chomsky by mark akbar and peterman tonic. Great peterman tonic past. Who died not too long and and that film. There's a little bit of background biography about gnome. Chomsky but to be honest you know. That wasn't the intention of the movie. The movie was a film essay. And what i wanna do is make an essay about about journalism and see it through the eyes of someone. Like robert fisk. Who's been around. Who's sort of a part of this lost generation of reporters in this new world of how we engage with the media. And let's let's let's let's listen and and and we can criticize. We can listen. we can we can. We can consider what robert thinks about. Journalism. and that way you know that was sort of the intention of the movie not to get so held up into the world of roberts private life which i can tell you to be honest if i can be honest with quite boring. You read books. I go to concerts. you go to concerts. You don't really eat a lot. So i don't know what that is you know. We had a scene where he's gaas occasion. We had a we had a scene. Where he's you know. He's a balcony on the cornish in his apartment. In beirut and often you like to lie down and read the book and there's fun to film for a few minutes but it's kind of boring after a while but you know as a journalist you guard you have to protect your privacy. It isn't just that when i'm working as a reporter in the middle east. Even back in. Belfast i might ask someone if you're married if they had kids. But i always thought private life is this it was not me to drive an invading invading tank into it and to make part of something. If you're interested in journalist. It's the work that you're interested. So i never in my professional career of asked about anyone's private life and i don't let them ask me. I'll add that we did get a shot of you and your pajamas and dance and that is hard to do down and i did it and it works. I don't hate me for a young. You talked about a theme in the film of how journalism is changing. And one of the things that we've seen especially in the middle east is a rise of citizen journalism. I think about conflict like syria. Where syrians themselves. In the absence of journalists being there might take cell phone video posted. I think about the group rock is being slaughtered silently. There was featured in the film city of ghosts and an robert in the film you make some observations about this changing worlds of how we receive news and and my perception of citizen journalism of look. We're getting these videos straight from the heart of a conflict. I've often tried to see the positive side developed is like. Isn't it good that we've got this. We're we're journalists. Wasn't able to to bear witness but but i feel in the film that you have a different concern about that and i wonder if you could elaborate. Well i think. I think the technology's fascinating if only we'd had some pictures film movie film of sub russia taylor and eighty two weeks. Learn a lot more about it with a seen the dead when they were still alive. And i like after looking at you with spectacles made by someone with a lens right but my concern about it is when the journalist accepts with only a slight hesitation. We can't fully confirm this film. A constant stream of images harrowing as they are and must be without trying to go the other side and saying is something. We're not saying one of.

"Robert fisk died in october at age. Seventy four after decades of reporting on the middle east filmaker young chang profiles fisk documentary. This is not a movie. And i'm tom powers and this is pure nonfiction. One year before robert fisk died. I interviewed him in young chang at the toronto international film festival for this is not a movie had its world premiere. The film follows fisk from his home base. Beirut as he takes reporting trips to syria in the west bank fisk had an incomparable knowledge of the region that he poured into newspaper columns and books like Pity the nation and the great war for civilization in the film fisk describes. His approach are very fortunate position in journalism in both street reporter. I'm on the frontline of wars. I see the war. But i'm also a columnist. Most columnists live in new york. London paris most reporters can be columnists what. I've had the great good fortune being both at the same time so when i grab a series of articles about say syria i've just come from the syrian. Frontline i'm not recording. What someone said or reporting what. I saw on youtube when i went up. Italy province all my colleagues saying italy battle about to begin but in that whole trap. I didn't see another journalist. See russian journalist. If you don't go to the scene and sniff it and taught to the people and see with your own eyes you cannot get nia what the truth is. Young chain is a chinese canadian filmmaker best known for his films up the yangtze and china heavyweight. Those topics wouldn't lead you to guess that he'd make a film about a middle east correspondent. I started by asking young. What led him to robert fisk. I don't even know what i'm gonna make necks. Usually it's driven by curiosity and this one came about because well a couple of things one of them was. I had been working on an anthology documentary about the. Us elections in twenty sixteen called eleven eight. Sixteen and i was in vermont filming a story about a guy named boots. Were dinky leftist socialist and off the grid type character and it was. It was around nine pm. Boots said this election's over close the shut down the grid and everyone went to sleep and the next morning. I woke up with the flurry of messages from my partner american and she was eight months pregnant and she was. Just you know uncontrollably upset. I had no idea what was going on. Felt like i think for a lot of people. The the election results with trump winning was was devastating for many people and for me it was drove right to the point of what the hell happened. And so fast. Forward to a the national film board of canada or the co producers of the film anita lee the producer alison lou. Check ingmar tross from germany. You know they got in touch and and presented this idea about robert fisk and i knew of his work at followed some of his work back in post september eleventh time and and said wow this this collides with with you know what is happening. Now let's make a film about journalism and this is what this movie is about. So robert p people come to. You asked to make a film about you. Did you have apprehensions about a film. Be no. I don't think that pretensions. I mean i've i've done films before you know i'll jazirah and other people at quite some length three hours with channel four discovery. I was interested to see to see young really and see. What kind of guy was i knew. Obviously he was unfamiliar with the region. And i thought it would be very interesting to see what someone who doesn't know the region would actually make of it and i thought it might be a distinct advantage as opposed to being a disadvantage and the first time he came to lebanon hit. Obviously done a lot of reading. He'd got it pretty right and the best thing and this sounds bad to some of your colleagues is we didn't come to tell me and people in lebanon for example. What he thought was going on. Listen and it was great to find someone who actually serious questions after few minutes. Listen and i listened to people all the time. And i thought this guy fevers countermands. The same grade. Raiders is an arby's iraqi. And i thank god for that. This could be very interesting. What concern me was the last big film i made. I had very bad relationship with director. Great guy but terrible relationship dominating guy i thought i could take a second shift and then i realized after we had dinner together in beirut because fund if we could make it enjoyable and fun to do as opposed to a work has to have deep philosophical background just and he said you know we want to follow you in your work. We won't interfere with them. I let sounds good if i can add. It speaks to roberts character. When i first came to meet you. I it'd be good about is fair. This fair i mean you know the his mammoth kind of credentials. The only western journalist of interviewed osama bin laden three times. I came in and also just knowing what people online kind of the world that circles you. And so i went into this wondering a little nervous. Who's this guy. And and yeah. That was good. And you know actually. He's you quite humorous person. You're quite fun to be around then. I was like oh this could work. We could spend a couple of years making a movie together and that's what it was. That was the experience for me. I may have to imagine daunting thing about. This is just the amount of history that robert has covered the amount of different vents the complexity of any one country that that he's coverages book. Great war for civilization is about that thick and the next one. Even soccer is even thicker. Then that's not a joke in the film. There's a clip where he's in the bookshop six hundred something and now. You're fast.

Politicians, Constance Baker Motley
"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Britannica. Today's politicians but most of her life fighting for civil rights, she put her life at risk to change the course of American history, but she's often left out of history books. Let's talk about Constance Baker Motley. Constance Baker Motley was born on September fourteenth nineteen, forty one in new haven connecticut she was one of twelve children born to working class immigrant parents from the West indies. Constance. Was a bright child who grew up attending integrated schools and quickly fell in love with reading. She didn't learn much about black history in school. But what she did learn about civil rights leaders inspired her she decided she wanted to become a lawyer, but constance couldn't afford higher education. She took a job as a maid for a while before moving on to work for the National Youth Administration an organization focused on providing work an educational opportunities for young adults. Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics. Then in nineteen, forty, four constance became the first black woman to be accepted to Columbia law school. After graduating from Columbia in nineteen, forty, six constants worked for the NWC peas legal staff under Thurgood. Marshall who later became a court justice over the course of her work at the N. double ACP constance assisted with almost sixty cases that ended up reaching the Supreme Court. She also personally argued ten supreme court cases and one nine.

Sportswear Brands Race to Build the Best Athletic Mask
"I'm Elaine Appleton Grant, and this is business wars daily on this Thursday August Thirteenth David Brown is on vacation. Mask mandates are on the rise as of production time more than thirty states had issued some form of mask mandate to curb the spread of covid nineteen most of the mandates are limited to indoor public spaces like doctors, offices, and supermarkets but some states require masks outdoors as well, and that's been more than a little challenging for one group in particular fitness means that's right joggers cyclists and hikers have complained that conventional masks tend to stop their sweat and restrict their breathing during workouts. They demanded a mask built for physical performance and sports where companies delivered under. Armour released their first batch of sports masks in mid June and they sold out their entire stock in under an hour. The company's second allotment also sold like hotcakes. So what exactly does the sports mask offer that conventional paper or cloth masks don't under armour CEO Patrick Fisk claims it's got the airflow you need a coalfield and the best fit for running training. The company got into the mask making business way back in April as a stopgap to help with P.. P. E. shortages facing healthcare workers. Then the
Journalists covering protests face assault and arrest
"We have to talk first about what we've seen in the past forty eight hours. The appalling targeting of reporters who are trying to tell America's story there is so much that so wrong about this situation first and foremost the video seem around the world, the video of George Floyd's final minutes alive. It's so wrong that it's hard to see, but it is right that we look. It is right that we bear witness. And it is right to see protesters taking action as a result, but it is wrong to see reporters and photographers and news crews, being assaulted and arrested at these protests, police firing rubber bullets at reporters. When their pores are holding up press badges. That doesn't belong in America authorities handcuffed reporters is wrong. That's what happens in authoritarian regimes, not in America, but yet it happened again last night in Minneapolis and in New York. These threats against the press, not just coming from police. In recent days, protesters have ganged up on the press in trouble cities. We've seen a photo journalist attacked. We've seen on TV. News crew chased out of a park. That is wrong. Rioters destroying TV. News vehicles and stealing cameras is wrong. Almost everybody knows this, and it's right to call it out and say that America is better than this. Reporters don't want to be the story. They just WanNa, tell the stories of the protesters and the police and the residents of these communities that want to be able to feel safe. Some of the examples of what we see in in terms of reporters, seemingly being targeted this for example was on Friday and Louisville. is a local CBS reporter and her cameraman in Louisville, Kentucky apparently shot with pepper balls while live on the air Later, the police apologized to the station, but we've seen other reporters that here's Dallas for his other reporters being being hit by rubber bullets. Tear gas there. These situations we've seen in a number of different cities I'll read some other examples to you. A reporter in Columbia South Carolina was hit by a rock and had to be taken to the hospital. Here's a freelance photographer in Minneapolis. who was shot in the left eye while covering the protests? He says she's been blinded in. One of her is as a result in Chicago Chicago. Tribune, photographer. Photographer said looters shoved and stole her cameras in DC. This is in Washington and Lafayette Park a Fox. News crew was harassed and then chased out of the park by protesters who were cursing and screaming at Fox News and criticizing right wing media. This is deplorable behaviour by protesters. We've also seen in LAS. Vegas. The arrests of two photographers police took these photographers into custody. That is completely inappropriate Out The next morning, you know we need to follow up on these cases and make sure that people are held accountable when these incidents happen, reporters should not be the story in these cases, but it's happened again in the past few hours overnight here in New York City. A reporter for Huffpost was arrested while wearing police badge and covering the protests in Brooklyn in Minneapolis Angeles, Time staff writer had police firing tear-gas remember bullets at point, blank blank range at her into a crowd of protesters and journalists. We're going to talk to her and just a moment. Reuters cameraman also said He. He was hit by rubber bullets. Some reporters have had to seek medical attention. A news crew KCRW says. The LAPD shouted her rubber bullets as she was holding her press badge above her head, and at least one case as I mentioned. We've seen protesters being the aggressors. This is a photographer for K. D. K. in Pittsburgh. He says he was attacked by protesters downtown on Saturday quote they stomped and kicked me. He said in a tweet from the back of the ambulance I'm bruised and bloodied but alive. My camera was destroyed. Another group of protestors pulled me out and saved my life. Thank you. This is what's happening. Members of the media in cities across the country this weekend. It feels like targeting. It feels like an escalation. It is deeply disturbing. And, we're waiting for statements about it from the president and from other national leaders when about a dozen reporters were arrested in Ferguson in two thousand fourteen. President Obama spoke about that defended the rights of the press. We will see who defends the rights of the press this weekend and in the days to come. Let's talk to the reporters, so we're in the middle of this. I just showed you. One of them molly. Hennessy Fisk reporter for the Los Angeles Times, who's got some wounds on her leg. We'll talk to her in a moment and Omar Jimenez here from CNN of course, famously iconic arrested live on CNN on Friday morning I. Don't think we're ever GonNa forget that image Omar of you being taken into custody your hands behind your back There's been a lot of news sense. Then tell me about last night and what it was like when. The police officers were were moving toward your crew and you had to seek shelter on Saturday night. Well. I think Brian we expect some of that. When you come out to a protest like this, because part of trying to cover the clashes between law enforcement, and those that are coming out, is you you expect in some ways for for things to escalate just based on how previous stories like these have gone so our team actually had a plan to sort of watch. How this law enforcement team is advancing. Go back to our first safe spot. Then continue to retreat to our next safe spot, but that didn't stop. That stop us even though our camera was rolling from getting shot at Berlitz wise, my producer got hit in the back with Some rubber bullets. My talk got hitting his leg with bullets. Actually he says that he had a cellphone in his in his pocket there and he didn't get any bruising on his leg, and when he realized, or he realized the reason was because he put out his phone, he was completely shattered, and he still has that piece of that rubber. Bullet is well so so in some ways. It was the normal aspect of covering protests, but in many ways. This one felt just a little bit different. Sort of looks different same question to you, Molly. What happened to you last night? Is it right that your colleague? Photographer had to go to the hospital. That's that's correct. My colleague Caroline coal photographer. We were both standing right

Babies Want Fair Leaders
"This scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Christine Herman. Anyone who's ever been with a toddler can tell you if they're upset about something. They will let you know. Scientists interest had been aware of this behavior what they did not know until now is that if babies as young as a year and a half old see someone else being treated unfairly they expect the leader the parent or the caregiver in that situation to step in and do something about it. Babies evaluate others constantly rene by. Arizona's a psychologist at the University of Illinois. She led the research on baby's expecting fairness when these transgressions occur babies evaluate me wait parents and other leaders and say well. You saw this transgression. You know this is not fair. Are you going to do something about it. If you don't then you are shirking your responsibilities and it makes you less leader less of a parent. That's right babies. <music> are judging you by our own says it seems babies are born with these expectations of what a leader is and how they should behave the work is in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The researchers used bear puppets to perform skits for seventeen month old babies who sat comfortably on a parent's lap in one scenario the puppet. Puppet leader intervenes when one of the other puppets hogs all the toys in another the leader does nothing to address the injustice by our Jones says such inaction that allows an unfair situation to persist bothers the babies and they stare longer at that leader as if waiting for him to act in puppet scenarios when there was no clear leader babies did not have this expectation of an intervention patrols of they expect a leader to not just use power for his or her own self interest to use their authority to regulate the morality of their followers. Aaron Fisk is an anthropologist who studies human relationships at the. A University of California in Los Angeles he was not involved in this study. He says many people underestimate what babies are capable of understanding and figuring out about the world world since they're just barely learning how to walk and talk and so you might think they didn't understand the world because you know they don't seem to be very competent at doing things in the world but oh you know amazing things are happening there and they understand an enormous about buyers zone says the study supports the idea that babies have an innate understanding understanding about power dynamics that then get shaped by the culture they grow up in.

The History of Cyber Monday
"Welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host Jonathan Strickland, an executive producer, and that love all things tech today thought change things up a bit and talk about the history and evolution of cyber Monday. So where did this come from? And are the deals on cyber Monday. Really great. And I guess the answer to that. Second question is essentially it depends. But first, let's talk about some history. So before there was cyber Monday. There was black Friday both in the sense that black Friday is a thing is older than cyber Monday. And also cyber Monday is the Monday that follows black Friday. So technically, it's true in two different senses. All right. So what does black Friday one of the United States? Black Friday is the Friday following thanksgiving. Thanksgiving in the United States falls on the fourth Thursday of November. At least it has ever since. Eighteen thirty nine when Franklin Delano Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week from the final Thursday of November. Now since November two thousand eighteen started on a Thursday November. I was Thursday that means that two thousand eighteen will see thanksgiving fall as early as it can which means November twenty second the latest. It can fall in the month is November twenty eighth. Anyway, black Friday is the day after thanksgiving in the United States. Now, there is an apocryphal story that says the origins of black Friday are deeply racist and tied to the United States history with slavery. According to that story slave traders would sell slaves at a discount on the day after thanksgiving to help plantation owners who are going to want to purchase more slaves to do work leading up to the winter. That's a horrible horrible thing. But the story isn't true at all. And honestly, I find it hard to believe that slave traders would respond to an increase in demand by lowering their prices, they already seen like terrible terrible human beings. I don't think of them as being particularly altruistic. However, we can put that whole explanation aside. Anyway, if anyone tells you black Friday is based in slavery that is not true. The term black Friday in relation to the day after thanksgiving did not appear in print until the nineteen fifties. As far as we can determine there was however an earlier version of black Friday, though, that was not the day after thanksgiving that black Friday wasn't associated with a holiday at all. But rather with a stock market crash that happened on Friday September twenty fourth eighteen sixty nine the cause of that crash was that there were two speculators named Jay Gould and James Fisk and together they were able to drive up. The gold prices way way up while they were trying to corner the market on gold on the New York gold exchange. They had even planted a story to convince US president Ulysses s grant to stop gold sales. They had this report that it was going to hurt farmers out west. Meanwhile, they bought up as much gold as they could. And that raised gold prices as a result. So they thought they were going to be rich. They're going to buy up the golden than they could sell it off at these elevated prices, however, president grant found out about it any ordered the release of millions of dollars of gold to be made available on the market and that caused prices to crash suddenly there was way more supply and this crash ended up affecting the stock market as well. However, this was a moment of acute pain. It was a sharp debt in the stock market, thus the name black Friday, but in the long term. Meant that the nation was actually able to avoid a more persistent depression. So it ended up turning out better than it. Otherwise would have the earliest known reference to the day after thanksgiving being black Friday dates to nineteen fifty one from periodical titled factory management and maintenance that it was a real page Turner..

He just captures Felix manning, and then gets all this info. And it's all wrapping gifts right episode. Pretty quickly rush. Like, yeah. That's all it took just capture Felix, man. If you knew this was the guy to capture the info. Why wasn't he the first guy? And like if Felix manning is that important. Yeah. I would've liked to have seen how dare devil captured him because I can't it's hard for me to believe that Fisk being the smartest motherfucker ever and having his hands and everything wouldn't have Felix manning on lockdown every fucking step of his life. You know, there's other big criticize installed. It was too. Convenient plot. Also another criticism kind of on the same bait.

You never see that anymore Thomas? No, I mean, but it's very widely used in the enterprise. And this is one of those use cases where you're like, wow, that actually makes a lot of sense. However. Ever especially when you're dealing with if glass is going to tell a person who is maybe not reading motions, the way that their peers are. You certainly hope the AI is giving you the right emotion. Yeah, exactly, right. Yeah, I was just going to say, so I actually have a younger brother who is autistic in the first thing I thought of was you gotta make sure this is right because he does have trouble reading tubes too. So so I wanna make sure that if you know if you're doing this, this is great, but don't have me thinking that, you know he's going somebody who looks like they're happy in wanna hug in. They're having the worst day ever. You need to get the the queuing right in this in and you need to get that test group just to make sure it's actually do know exactly. I'm, I think machine learning is good enough now that you can get a high enough percentage of this to be correct that if you tune it right, it just won't respond if it's unsure. Lonely responded a high enough confidence level. It shouldn't have that issue. But yeah, whether it's actually having an effect or not is still yet to be determined. But I think it's promising. Let's move onto Google maps, which is upsetting people, but because they don't know where they're going where than sixty three percent of people who access to map or a smartphone or tablet in may of this year used Google maps versus nine nineteen point four percent for Elliot Baba's maps, five point, five percent for apple maps. This is according to calm score, apple maps or Google maps. You know, runaway hit right. Google says it creates. It's maps through lots of things. Third party data, public sources, satellites and user feedback. However, the New York Times has a story that implies at least in some cities. There's motivation behind some name changing of neighborhoods and sometimes unpopular ones. For example, in San Francisco neighborhood recently renamed the east cut. I just have to laugh because I used to live there is tied to a nonprofit group that paid sixty eight thousand dollars to a brand experience design company to rebrand the district. So there's some motivation there. One of the east. Cut nonprofits board members happens to be a Google employee. So some people are saying, why are we reading in our neighborhoods and not just an Francisco. There was a person in in Los Angeles who started jokingly referring to his house on a hill in Silverlake neighborhood in Los Angeles as Silverlake heights. And suddenly someone had submitted it to Google maps, and now his neighbor discounts over like heights. There was another map maker in New York who was just making a reference guide and had some Typos and made some mistakes and use some reference materials that he no longer has. And suddenly that got used a source material for renaming neighborhoods and he's like, well, that that isn't the way it should work. There is a neighborhood in Detroit that is now called fish corn instead of Fisk horn because of type on Google maps. So, yeah, I mean, it's crazy. How people look what like, oh, it's a map that is the name, even if there are decades of experience of calling it something else. And then mean going back to San Francisco, there is a neighborhood that was the western addition that became Nope. And it was sort of a real estate thing because they were trying, you know, it's, it's, it's always sort of smoke and mirrors. This is this is not new. I think what a lot of folks are. Crying foul on is so many people use Google maps. If you're in an employer plays and you don't know where you are and you see something called the east cut. You're like, okay, that's where I am.

"Two fifteen program or fisk opinions had stayed in the united states so you're gonna have to face judgement you know he would probably be out of jail by now and and be making millions of dollars a year sort of on the speaking circuit and so i don't know what the sort of appropriate punishment is at this point but in some sense sort of his self imposed exile in russia strikes me as far worse than than what the united states justice system would have done to him so you know i i don't know how you think about that in terms of general karma but but i do think that's probably descriptively accurate do you think what he disclosed the importance of that to the public should be taken into account and how we evaluate his actions is this is sort of the core debate around the espionage act whether or not there should essentially be public interest defense so you just close information and you do it for a really good reason and therefore it's mitigating the the problem with that is that we can't have individual people substituting their their personal judgment for sort of the larger classification system and unlike i i'm not going to say that the entire classification system is is infallible certainly we have a problem of sort of over classified information but but ultimately it reduces down to sort of the reality that one person doesn't have the full context they don't understand that information as it relates to other agencies as it relates to other forms of sources and methods collection right no one person is really able to even appreciate the gravity of disclosure and so you know if we create a situation in which you know any individual with the clearance is allowed to two four themselves decide whether or not this is something the public needs to know that is not just a sort of a problematic situation it's it's potentially dangerous one and so you know look i there are tradeoffs seyran and there are people who have disclosed classified information that is you know is within the public interest and has prompted important debates but i think at the end of the day sort of the the higher value of protecting the united states is ability to conduct intelligence for genuine national security purposes i tend to believe that that is the higher order value to protect here no i know law fair has specific rules in terms of disclosure and clearances for contributors so there's a little bit of an apples and oranges question but if you were the intercept would you have published reality winners revelations you know like i can't begin to speak for for the intercept i'm so far removed from that particular mindset you know what i will say is that if i was a publication that had made the decision to publish classified information i would have done it really differently and i think this case is an example of a publication that was extraordinarily careless and was so sort of anxious and eager to publish any classified information of any kind of just for the sake of of of the headline and for publishing the information you know they they could have done all of this reporting in a way that actually didn't identify their source and while i'm someone who thinks that it's a good thing that the person who who released cost guide information was identified and prosecuted for for other individuals that thank you know.
