35 Burst results for "Five Hundred Hours"
Content Curation Methods - AI vs Manual
"A little bit of background. Every day we take in a maximum of one hundred hours of radio content and seven hundred or so hours of podcasts content for a very rough total of ran twenty five hundred hours a day. It's a veritable ocean of content. I ran a team of fish people. We need to fish this ocean for content. And we've tried to develop and refine strategies to do that on an average weekday. The team currently produces between two to three hundred reviewed boasts with people working a combined. Total of around twenty two hours a day burst. Length differs greatly but i randomly check today last week. The combined listening duration of all two hundred eighty seven approved. Bursts was over nine hours which is way too long for one person to listen to on a daily basis. So more on that later the history of content ration- audio burst the ways we've learned to fish has always ranged across the spectrum between ai and manual curation so far we've found traction by creating a hybrid system the tries to mitch the pros of both ways using the better qualities of each method to overcome the cons of the other when we tried to focus only on manual curation scouring hours of content for needle in a haystack gyms of pithy content. We found quality pieces of content but only a few per day. We had quality but very little quantity. When gull built a system that matched bursts archive to trending headlines. We had thousands of results. Some relevant some not some cut. Well some not quantity but not quality. We needed a better way. So we developed a system based on girls prototype automated candidates that within manually reviewed the system searched for audio content that match trending headlines and we added a bunch of rules such as how back in time to search for audio which sources to use to take headlines and a few others and then we would manually review the results all the data gathered from the reviewers when a boost was cut. Well by the i when it wasn't when the headline matched when it didn't all that data would be fed back to the research team to improve the quality of the candidates generated by the i. Older reviewed boasts would be inserted into playlists and classified by topics which would create playlists full of perfectly curated content. But the system wasn't perfect. We had a global team of review is working around the clock an hour here and now there and many would end up reviewing the same or similar content as others filling the playlists with duplicate content. Short explain to hear about duplicates. Well it's official. Prince harry and meghan markle burning in megan lawrence lead with the british royal family gets repeated usually every hour or half hour sometimes. The story develops sometimes it. Doesn't we need to catch those updates but ignore the repeated stories. We already have. That's a challenge. So we built a filter to remove duplicates which worked so so also the filter just removed the old version of an item. So sometimes a really good burst of content would be removed by a fresher less compelling one. We also told the team not to use too much editorial judgement if the audio match the headline it would be approved and added to a playlist. Now there's a lot of blather on the airwaves. If we had millions of users would quickly be able to work out who likes which type of content. but we don't this is chicken and egg problem with millions of users we can vastly improve our offerings but to get millions of users. We need to i offer. Quality compelling content another challenge some headlines particularly from certain categories like tick health and science. We're very hard to match content to. Us news was pretty easy. Audio content often matched print headlines tech headlines. Not so much ed. To that. The technical difficulties in transcribing esoteric terms that is terms that are specific to a niche topic and entities that insist on spelling things incorrectly. Like almost every high tech company. Ever well you can see where things get a bit more complicated. The fact is that while you can often easily create a one to one match between national news in print and national news in audio content. When the news topic is more niche it becomes much harder. This system also found a lot of radio content because of the nature of constantly updated. Radio content means that it tends to match printed content like the headlines. We're using to generate search queries more than podcasts. To try to overcome this problem we added another feature. We inserted bursts from quality podcasts. Those we selected as being the top of their class or category which we labeled vetted and we push that content into the review process. That content doesn't have to match a trending topic. It's just a snippet of whatever that podcast episode is about. These pushed bursts at quality and diversity to the playlists and increase the ratio of podcast to radio content. There are pros and cons to this method. Podcast basket playlists work on a somewhat similar
Pokemon community divided over Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl’s graphics
"Pok mon everywhere. It's focus on the first. One is the pokemon legends. Look at all. This is legend arkadiusz. Our our kids. Yes and it's an open world. Rpg that we've been driver out for as.

How Much Money Can You Make on YouTube?
"Youtube is a media monster. It's such a huge platform and such a great search engine for information entertainment education. It's a real live monopoly. Nothing comes close to youtube. Yes there's video but the meals really not there as a source of media people maybe post videos and is very short in the film industry or in the arts but nobody comes close and believe it or not. It's still very early days in youtube. You still can get into youtube and really grow. I still find an astonishing. That youtube is still free. Meaning you can start a youtube channel. You can publish to the platform. You can store videos. You can accept comments. All this is free. And yes their business. Model relies on content. That will create. But you can easily charge a very small annual fee just a stroll. He's videos for crying out loud. But it's still open for everybody for free which is a great opportunity. There's over two billion logged in users every single month on youtube and this statistic is huge eighty-one percent of fifteen to twenty five year olds are on youtube. This means the existing and future generations in the next five to ten years that are spending. Money are on this platform over five hundred hours of video uploaded to youtube every single minute and ask business. Youtube is not going anywhere in the us alone. They made five point. Five billion dollars in revenue in just twenty twenty. So what are your options when it comes to earning an income on youtube. Well the obvious option is to become a creator being a youtuber. Were you publish content on youtube channel and youtube places ads on your video when people watch those ads. You get a bit of money now. How much money. You might be surprised about this figure. But i do research based on other youtubers. I've read forms read. It's an on average for every thousand video views. You can earn between three and five dollars. Why the range will depend on. Popular channel is how in demand. Your videos are Retention rates all that kind of stuff it also depends on the length of the video. How many ads are on that video. All that kind of stuff. But this is just general Barometer for you so if a video gets let's say ten thousand views you're probably gonna make around forty dollars on that video so just off that rough number you might be thinking. Wow that's not that much money that means if a video got a million views which is absolutely incredible. Very hard to do that. Video would earn ten four. To five thousand dollars in ad revenue. Now you can see why youtubers true publish as many videos as possible. The try to get you to subscribe So you can watch those videos reminder to watch those videos the do a lot of seo. They wanna get people searching and finding their videos and watching those it is even if subscribers because their ad revenue dollars count on the fact that people click on videos. Watch the videos watch threats now in order for you to even monetize. Your channel youtube requires you to have a thousand subscribers to your channel. This is a new rule that they place maybe a few years ago When i started on youtube this wasn't there also have to have at least four thousand watched two hours in the last twelve months so you can't just have a bunch of subscribers and Views to another rough estimate. I know noah kagan recently launched a video on youtube talking about How much money the earn on ads in washington. Ads run on his channel and they earn between three to four thousand dollars a month and they have a hundred thousand subscribers around one hundred thousand subscribers and a takes a lot of work. I mean no has been working on his youtube channel four years publishing great grey videos on a regular basis highly produced a well edited very engaging. So if you're looking to make money on youtube as a youtuber solely on ad revenue this has got to be your main game. This has got to be your Dedicated craft where you're trying your best to produce amazing content gray videos gray editing and those who make a healthy income six figures seven figures on youtube the really catering to a large large audience. They're trying to mass a huge audience and often niches that are in comedy entertainment sports tech things that will appeal to the masses. Now if your business is not one of those knee shes don't worry that's not the only way you can make money on youtube ad. Revenues only one way. And it's actually not the one way. I would recommend videos agree to build relationships. It's a good way to start the relationship to educate people to give content I would say second to blogging. Videos are incredibly powerful and it's becoming more and more a seo powerhouse. People search for certain things videos will come up so see youtube as a way for you to get in front of your audience and give them great value in exchange. They're going to check you out. Check out your work. Subscription newsletters Understand what you and take you up on it. A lot of companies have started youtube channels solely on the fact that youtube is so powerful and they can get in front of their audience. Very easily one caveat. Though you're in the video business in youtube you're basically becoming a media company in any kind of investment you're gonna make in content marketing. You need to be consistent. You need to be committed. This means consistently producing great video great content. Then it's a lot of work to create a video so whatever it is whether you decide to create a video every two weeks or every month you gotta stick to it. It's a lot of work in my recommendation is to get somebody dedicated to this on your team or you dedicate yourself if this is something you enjoy doing now. I don't recommend that because you need to run a business so hiring one person to run your youtube channel is the bare minimum in my Estimation you should really have somebody and they could be the talent that could be the person in front of camera. But they're they're the person that has to be responsible for producing these videos on a consistent basis. Very much like podcasting Your youtube subscribers are looking forward to the next release. They are expecting the next piece of content from you and you got to fulfill those expectations and utah will reward you for that consistency for the constant effort to adding to their great content on the platform. And yes you can also monetize and make some Money on the side based on your views but in this strategy your mean goal here is to build a relationship with the larger audience. that's on youtube With people that are searching for certain terms getting them to get your website get on your email lists and continue growing that relationship there so they can become a customer if you want to check out some examples of companies. Have done this really. Well checkout prophet. Well patrick campbell and his team has done incredible job with their youtube channel. Checkout podesta's youtube channel. I mentioned a noah kagan. He's done a great job with his youtube channel. Brian deane from back lincoln. Also a business. That sells seo courses advice. Coaching and he's built an incredible. Seo base channel on youtube.
Sam Bankman-Fried: What Sets FTX Cryptocurrency Derivatives Exchange Apart
"We'd like to thank Allah grant for their support of the PODCAST. And one of. The things I've heard about. That you know it's it's a platform that very well designed for traders and you know your product designed comes lock from your experiences running in active trading firm. What does that mean tangibly got? What are the sort of things that make FBI six different than other exchanges? Of things there and I'll just give a few examples although a lot of this is in the details your lot if they like a lot of just small tweaks in decisions that we made. What are some of the bigger things so? One thing is and maybe one of the bigger inserts like Moose you know sort of most visible things is how margin is handled. I don't know if you've like amateur of used. DRIFTS, exchanges before but I certainly the like the norm. Is. That every single merchant account is separate and what I mean by that is like you know. All right. So you WANNA trade. You know you WANNA trade bitcoin derivatives shot pope acquaintan- in marching your trade. US. Derivatives are put us in another merchant account. You WanNA trade you put Ethan. Third YOU WANNA. Trade spot put that Nina a fourth account yawn treat spot margin while there's a fifth account. And many of these places have like a hundred accounts or or something have way more than that, and it just quickly becomes like you know if you if you haven't spent like five hundred hours. Building out like a dedicated automated system to march to. A managing this it's like really hard to handle. You know like you know there's just sort of like Oh. God like I really. WanNa trade you know pch futures right now what do I need to do? Okay. Well, first of all, I need to remove some funds from whatever account there and now after us by spot pch for so why what the fuck like you're you're the whole point shrink futures not have you know they don't have to have h but now the first step of trading features buying. Tokens, and then you move them into account and then you can start trading and he each scalp position you have to reach everything's, and then you start thinking about your risk profile whereas a rick why go after by H in order to buy. Yeah. It's a really good question because a lot of these venues the margin for H. futures is H. The only thing you're allowed to post collateral is spot bitcoin cash and so I want. Bitcoin cash you need fiscal bitcoin cash. As you watch right US futures, you need fiscal us, and so you end up having to manage a spot book and all of these transfers all within the same exchange just to be able to trade the futures within it, which which served really shouldn't be necessary on and then it gets worse when you start thinking about your risk profile, do you think about liquidations and these are all independent margin accounts even though they're within the same exchange and they're all within your account? And it's what that means that they're separate liquidations. For, every single one and so you have to like manage like make sure that none of these fifty accounts you have with them. This one exchange are closed getting liquidated if they are you have to go in and like move funds around. and. So this is sort of like the extreme version of isolated margin as opposed to cross margining, and it's just like a huge pain to to manage and you know I mean it's a huge pain for a sophisticated trading firm with thoughts that move capital around automatically like you know it's so much bigger of a pain for I like manual traitor, you know who like What keep constantly checking all these things like logging onto you move around their capital do some trades so on f There's one account you can put anything in it Y- you dollars in other. Bitcoin cash east, whatever you want it all starts. And it all powers, all of the futures on it. and. You never need to reshuffle things, and so it's sort of like gets rid of that whole problem. Unless you want to and if you want to if you want to isolate margin so that you have like clean train records split up or so that you have margin on winced protected from a liquidation on the other than you can open up a different sub account and do that. So you can customize how you want like by default you don't have to. So. Serve like one example for thing where it's just a pain to use a lot of these platforms and tried to make it. As flexible as possible and and you another piece of that, which is different is that you know if tex will take a lot of different things quadral and so it's not like you have to store your clutter role in in. In in Bitcoin, you can do either and they'll they'll both payroll the future. So that's like one example for
The value of time.
"Are for this week's episode. I WanNa talk about time my father-in-law's one of those guys. Who'd rather do something himself? Then pay someone else. Do it for him. Some people are the pay others type and some are the do it themselves type. I'm the pay others type. But I envy my father-in-law's vast knowledge and a column for fixing things. At least monthly in his sixties. He was changing his own oil in his car. And I mean he'd drive the car up on little metal ramps in his garage. Get on a wheeled cart. Get underneath the car and do everything himself. It took them a little more than an hour and then he'd drive over to Jiffy Lube dispose of the oil I just did Jiffy Lube I and let them do the whole thing and the reason I do this is because Jiffy Lube charges me around forty bucks for the whole thing and they do it in thirty minutes and I can respond to emails while I'm waiting if I do it myself. I still have to buy twenty dollars with oil and filter and then spend an hour. Doing the oil change an hour. I'll never get back. So the trade becomes is the twenty dollars. I'd save doing it myself. Worth the hour of my time. And the answer is emphatically. No I make more than twenty dollars an hour. The average salary America's around sixty five thousand dollars a year which divides up to about thirty bucks an hour and that means the average person should not be changing their own oil. The processes have been streamlined. Commoditised enough to where it just makes sense to pay for the service just like most people don't so their own clothes or raise their own cows for milk and meat either. It was probably twenty years ago. Started doing this math on pretty much anything or had to decide whether to do it myself or pay to have it done. It puts an objective criteria on the decision and the only times I go against what the math is telling me is if I really have a burning desire to learn how to do something because I feel like that knowledge will serve me in some way in the future but the one place. I never thought about doing that. Math was in my actual job to job. I worked twenty five hundred hours a year doing because just like I'd never get back the our changing my oil also never get back. The time I spend working it's gone forever for all of us and IT Open Mon this. It's just a fact of life but it also means I don't want to trade away. Those hours for just a paycheck. Those hours are too big a chunk of my life of our lives. I know it's much easier said than done but it's really important. You love what you do or at the very least. If you don't love what you do it's important. The job you don't love is one that will open doors in the near future for careers you will love on last week's talent Tuesday episode. I spoke about getting back to the basics of what your people expect out of you and your organization and the very first thing I mentioned was the desire to get better at things that aren't related to the job. Things that will build their resume and make them more marketable. These are the things that make people believe the time they invest is worth it. I don't need to know how to change my oil so Jiffy Lube can continue doing it for me but even cheaper to pay someone to wash my car in ten minutes that it would be spending our washing at myself. The time with my son doing it together makes it worth it. The cost benefit analysis of time versus. Money says to pay somebody to wash my car every time but I remember watching my dad's car with him and how great it was spending time with him and that added element tip the scales the other way. If you're leader of people you'll never be able to pay anyone enough to make the job worth the paycheck. Your employees feel like they're getting something else out of it to or they'll get more value out of the transaction by working hard. The paycheck is extrinsic reward. So that means even if you pay somebody way more than the job even worth eventually the novelty of that paycheck lower off and the employer will disengage. It's no different than how we get excited about the idea of getting into a brand new car and driving off the lot knowing it's ours but by the twelfth payment the excitement is worn off and now the payment feels like. It's too much what we're getting in return. The first payment was totally worth it. We got a car and we got that feeling but once the feeling goes away we get a more accurate picture of the perceived value of the transaction. So how do you increase the perceived value of the job for your employees? You give them training knowledge skills and responsibilities that aren't directly related to their actual job. You stretch them. You develop their leadership skills. You help them accomplish their educational goals either with money or equally important. With flexibility of time and work life balance there are people all over who could easily change companies and make more money doing the exact same job if they can do this and they aren't. It's because they're getting something else besides their salary. Find out what those things are for each of your people and find ways of helping them get those things. I just how engaged they become. Thanks for listening. I have a great day.
Neutralizing Negative Thoughts
"How are you going to ask a question? It's a simple question. You may not know the answer right now. You might have to check might have to reference it but I'm GonNa ask it anyway already. Do you know what day it is today. I mean what day of the Week. It is because a lot of folks. Your schedule's been flipped upside down. You're working at home. These days can't quite figure out what data's that's a bad thing actually. It's the daily boost from motivation to move dot com since about two thousand but we start in two thousand and five the show starred in two thousand six simple mission get up in the morning. See with world brings you could. We don't always expected to bring a pandemic but it does sometimes and it gets in her way like it's in the way okay. Well how do we deal with it? You know if you get done with the freak out and some people are still freaking out. Some people have really bad lives right now. It's it's really tough for a lot of others are barely even touched by an kind of an odd thing. So we're finding a new place to figure it out but it happens and we just work through a day by day. But why tell you what I've heard from? People that are in their homes these days and some are saying. I can't wait to get back to the office others going. This is kind of cool. I kind of like being at home at the time years ago. I made the switch I. I decided I didn't want to work in an office anymore and I actually didn't work in too many of them because I worked in Radio Section. Walk in and go through the office and go to the studio and you morning shows and I was doing the last morning show every day in West Palm Beach. Florida and As driving about sixty miles a day to get that while one way to get there so one hundred twenty miles a day. Four o'clock in the morning him on the highway cruising sixty minutes down. The radio station was getting kind of tired of it. The drive and so I started doing some math one day and the Matthew says if I drive two hours a day five days a week fifty weeks out of the year. That's about five hundred hours of driving. And then I divided it by forty a forty hour workweek right and came up with twelve point. Five forty hour workweeks driving like a third of the year and about a week later. I couldn't get out of my mind. I quit my job. So that's not GonNa do more and I took a Home Office as I'm saving all the time and putting it in into life and I've had a lot of clients through the same thing so maybe right now. You're thinking the same if you do that math right now. Some of you are going to sit at the dinner table tonight going. You know what I heard today. Do you know how many hours it's coming right. Haze Scott Smith good to have you. Thanks for stopping by. We're going to talk about neutralising. Negative thoughts today awesome show. Because I'm feeling the need to purge them from here's all show you a simple method to To get them out here get out of your head. Couple of days ago. I started getting emails. And there's a consistent theme in those e mails it was God. Have you noticed that the economy is kind of like stopped as pandemic is stopped? And we just don't know what's going to be happening and I love your show. I want this podcast and I want my Daily Mail. Daily Click text message and I want the Fisher Passion coaching. But I'm kind of looking nineteen ninety-five gotta be smart here a CJ do so. Let me help so for the first time since two thousand six. I cut the price from nineteen ninety-five down to nine five fifty percent discount during this pandemic. That's going on right now. It's available to you. Nothing's changed just price. If you're interested. Go TO MOTIVATION WHO'VE DOT COM GET? Signed up right now okay. So are you having nightmares? Lot folks are having nightmares really bad dreams right now and I'm having some weird dreams. I wouldn't call them nightmares but weird dreams. Negative thoughts though popping up throughout the day. A lot of people are doing the right now and why not there is a lot going on. There's a lot to worry about depending on where you are in this particular Process we have going right now with a pandemic. It could be very negative for you. It's kind of hard to be positive. Isn't it yet force that so I was thinking about it? I was actually working with a couple clydes helping them. Kind of neutralize. Those thoughts and a part of my job won't kill. Let's bring it here and the more I began to think about the MOIS. Okay where do I begin to pick up this? Take that I use to neutralize those negative thoughts and when I I really began to be aware of it was when I was studying for my pilot's certificate learned a little airplanes got instant radio thing and as I was going through the process. I thought it was all about flying airplanes whether things like that but I was really surprised by the emphasis put on the health of a pilot state of mind now in the beginning I never had thought about it. But then again when you think about it. If you've ever watched movies you want the pilot to be feeling pretty good. Right if he's completely negative getting in the cockpit. That's not probably a good thing to do. Negative thoughts are hazardous to flying so they teach pilots to kind of recognize in that in themselves. And actually teach you to recognize it and crew members as well has it as thoughts. Negative thoughts man bad for life to. You might be feeling that right now so next time you're feeling negative. That thought nudging its way into your day. Here's what you do number one recognize it a lot of times. These things are flying in and out of your head. It were busy. Were caught up in the news and everything else is going on. Just survival really right and we're not taking the time to recognize what's happening. We might see it as a bad mood or just being grouchy. Just being depressed or something so I want you to stop and just if you can catch it in your brain catch it before it begins to bother you too much just recognize. It's their that is the first step toward neutralizing a hazarded negative. Thought it just recognizing and so simple sometimes when you just do that. Just by recognizing it's a thought. Sometimes it goes way. You don't have to do anything else. But what if you do while number two is got to label it? Got To call it. Something get identify why the Lousy thought is coming into your mind and Slab label on it. I do this all the time. I label everything when anything comes into my world and I just got to put. I got a call at something and if I don't know what to call it or what box it put it in. Or how file? I can't do anything with it bounces around my brain. It's like an open loop that goes on and on and on and on so label it when you know what to call it. You'll know what to do next so when you label it. Well I'M A. I'm just worried about finances. That's fine just label. I'm worried about money. That's cool. Just label it because now you can take a break. You know what it is. You've stopped that spin next. You prescribe the antidote and you make the underlying cause go away. Wash away the negative now. How do you do that? Well say it is money so you're worried about that. Do what I did doing an inventory. You go and you see exactly where you are and you start to make a bit of a plan I promise you when you recognize that label it and then begin to deal with it even the smallest amount the worry while will still be there will not be this unfettered in your face driving you crazy making his not sleep. Khanna worry it'll be more controlled. You'll feel more like you. That's all you need to do. And it all stops starts just by stopping it and recognizing what's going on. It can be incredibly easy to get caught up in negative negative. Not if you will find yourself frankly in a state of overwhelm. It's everywhere right. Now GonNa put the brakes on it. Take a few minutes. All of those steps recognize it sloppily. Bilotta and then prescribe prescribe the solution described. Don't just fiddle around with it. Literally sit down and say hey. I'm the doctor me. This is what I'm GonNa do rectify this problem. Even if you can't get all the way they're just the fact that you put it up on the table you can see where it is John to Stan would initiate where it's coming from and now you have at least somewhat of a path to head down to get get it taken care of. You will sleep so much better. I promise you by the way. Did you know that alcohol sales are up? Fifty five percent and marijuana sales are off the charts right now. I bet you didn't even have to tell you that. And you just know it right when you walk into a store and they've been armed guards standing around the beer you know. There's an issue going on so breath agee breath. I'M GONNA come back tomorrow. I can't I have no idea what I'm talking about because I'm talking to my coat my members I'm talking to my clients. I'm I'm seeing what's necessary. And then we craft the story for the next day but it'd be good one because man. My phone is ringing like crazy. Appreciate also check in industry yellow.

The Internet's Fascination with Taste-Test Videos
"Josh. Welcome to milk street. Thank you so much for having me your the food producer of the Youtube web series. Good mythical morning there to hosts Rhett McLaughlin and link. Neil so why do people people enjoy watching folks eat cod sperm dumplings one because called sperm dumplings are delicious You know I really grew up in the Youtube era. I was cloistered in my room around the family. Desktop watching epic mealtime in the guys. You know Sewing up a Turkey inside of a pig inside of a whole cow and It's a bit of a meritocracy on the Internet where you know. You don't need like a a network. Executive may never have signed off on the concept of eating cod sperm dumpling for the gross out factor. But if you put it on the Internet it's a proving ground to see what people people really do. WanNa watch kind of on their own accord and boy do they love cops berm dumplings okay so there is some you know. Would they eat that humor here but some of this is pretty straightforward. You did a taste test the popcorn you taste test of pizza crusts yes. So what is it about just tasting ordinary foods were fifty million people. WanNa Watch it on Youtube. It's really funny. I I actually started my career in digital journalism. But you see so many even legacy publications boasting top ten Greek yogurt brand taste test. And they do that because it brings in just a ton of using isn't a ton of numbers so I mean I think you could call it just a very ordinary taste tests watching guys eat food but I mean it really is service journalism. It's just on Youtube and not in a newspaper. Yeah but but you guys are in the entertainment business and having a list in the USA today or online at eater is one thing But this is about watching your two hosts do the taste test right. So what what do you think is sort of driving entertainment Formula Abiola four one to the to host of sitting there tasting popcorn. Yeah I mean For me it all starts with playing on people's curiosity you know I I think people have this sort of wish fulfillment like I know myself. I would love to sit down with all seventy four TACO bell menu items in just tastes them one by one and decide which is the best and I think. A lot of people have this kind of wish fulfillment fantasy and if they can see someone do something that they've always wanted to do themselves the watch it and then to I mean there's such a skill in I mean it's the skill of being a food critic Not to Exalt Renton link on the level of like a Jonathan golder under a Pete Wells but You know being able to describe things that are in your mouth like being able to describe the physical sensations that are happening to you. It's it's a real skill you know they're just They're good at what they do. One of the other segments I saw was turning foods like twinkies into milk Could you explain how that worked. I kind of like that segment. Yes we those one of the Willett segments a lot of this goes deep into a Cartesian metaphysics and food semantics right so when you say will it milk the we were going more with the definition of nut milk which there is a lot of current legislation on whether that can or can't be called milk but we ran with it regardless and so yeah in that we took twinkies and we just blended them with water soaked him in milk bag for a couple of days and then wrung it out and I mean it was truly truly delicious. I mean it's like you know. Milk bar created an empire based off of cereal milk flavored. Treats why not you know twinkie. Milk cheetos milk did not look delicious. Milk was less delicious but again you know that's a recipe developments about you gotta take risks and I still think if you did like a risotto with the cheeto milk and there ain't got that Or Borio rates Mason crispy and just kind of toasted up the excess oils. Listen that cheeto fat. I think it would have been nice. Yeah I would say cheeto Milka reside. Oh maybe something I'll pass on but maybe I'm just too fashioned so one of the other segments. Yes you do. Are The fancy foods you take a subway foot long and spend five hundred hours making the most expensive version of it You also did a two hundred dollar big Mac. Did you get to eat that big MAC too or just the house. I did get to eat. It actually made a really lovely tar tar out leftover steak so that was awesome But yeah that to me is like the definition of viewer wish fulfillment. Because I mean I think so. Many people have this nostalgic connection to so many different fast food items just like what if you made that as awesome as he possibly could so based on this show. Another youtube shows about food. Where's this all headed yet? Look we look at what's happening to food network right. How many standing stir cooking shows are even left? You know everything on food network is now a competition show where chefs are cooking in. FLOATY says Alton Brown. You know the yells at them and hits him with a bull whip or whatever And then you look at Youtube and look at what bone apetite is doing thing bone apetit you know these single biggest legacy print glossy food MAG is now like five million subscribers deep on youtube in putting out the most educational cooking content on any platform. Honestly I think we're just getting into an era where you're going to see more diverse voices some more just educational food content that people want to see. And it's Kinda funny because it's now like less extreme stuff than what is on network Org. TV Josh thank you very much for being on Milk
YouTube is launching educational playlists
"Offering is where youtube is trying to do something different. It's trying to curate as session with editor control. Showcasing the best of what's on Youtube unlike everything else which is automatically generated youtube gets. It's five hundred hours of new videos uploaded every minute so it's that's more than any human can never come up with. So what's Youtube doing while they're going going out and spending money to get great learning content on the service using stars like Robert Downey to discuss artificial intelligence agents. Michelle Obama to do a book club and National Geographic other producers are involved as. Well it's some pretty good stuff and what what's new in. Two thousand twenty is learning playlists that youtube creators add to their content to be totally focused on actual lesson. Plan an beginning middle and end without any this other stuff that you might WanNa Watch type of distractions. That's all over Youtube. I applaud you to for what to doing. I don't know that this is going to take away from some of the really bad stuff. That's on Youtube but I wish they would do more stuff like this to help weed that crap away.
Is YouTube doing enough to fight hate speech?
"YouTube is being forced to concentrate on cleansing the site we visited the company's headquarters in San Bruno California to meet Susan would just ski the fifty one year old CEO in charge of nurturing the sides creativity taming the hate and handling the chaos we have five hundred hours of video uploaded every single minute to you too say that again so we have five hundred hours of video uploaded every minute to do that is breathtaking it is it is we have a lot of video in a lot of influence on our lives and how we pass our time over a billion people listen to music on YouTube every month it's the planet's pop music's children's channel with over forty four billion views do you let your children watch YouTube including the young ones so I allow my younger kids to use you to kids but I limit the amount of time that they're on it I think that too much of anything is not a good thing but there's a lot you can learn on you too I think about how you two been many ways this is global library but you want to see any historical speech you could see it you want to be able to learn a language make your way you want to laugh you just want to see something funny one due to failure cooking cook is a great example who's watching people binge eat with the subject Ukraine a growing number

Hey how you doing actually I'm on eighty dresser drawers. here was by before July fourth empire that was back in old floor I don't remember but I had called in and you're listening to what everyone saying I'm I'm disappointed the president then answer the one question that was right on the mark right in the beginning that how the American public feel about a president who sought that help grow for nation against the potential close political hold it he he did not a completely he dodged heat and then and then then the reporter came back and asked again any Dodge it again he had he had to Dodge is on that one Dolly he won go directly. exactly what concerns me is that I like to look things flatly and say you know you're telling me the truth are you telling me something else for both sides Democrats the Republicans you said one thing that I think is bull you because you're typically call things as they are but you said it with regard to the mule or testimony that he had said that there was no violation of the law Mueller didn't say that with Miller said was that he his job was to investigate and and determine what the evidence showed and he said there was evidence of obstruction No Way Out of collusion but it's up to Congress to make the call whether or not there's a vial right well what I don't understand I was specifically clear yeah no no noise it's clear it if we talk about a million times but you're right it was the Russian part I was talking about that they could not prove a conspiracy is what I said and they net that they could not well on the obstruction they said yeah we saw it but it wasn't enough for us to to to do anything so bill Barr you do it so yeah I don't want to go relitigate that but no no no no well that that's not that's not actually accurate it was up to Congress to decide remember bill bar and it just throws that we will not indicted sitting president right there that's the rule right right song respectful to different things but that but that's beside the point at the end of the day here's what I think is going on there was one I was I've been listening for about an hour and a half two hours driving one person email or Twitter stuff that instead they're tired of the white noise I think the public is tired of all of the shenanigans with the president the thing is that he's doing and here is my bombshell prediction and you I will talk six months from now I think there's going to be a Republican that comes out and went against them because I think it's going to get worse for trump at every time he gets in boiled in something and noticed he has that Biden affect you start mumbling starts really starts rambling on and on and on and all of it so you. okay there's a problem with the guy because he's not answer the question and he's rambling who you know who's going to run against them the why think if you're sitting in the back and is going to jump out there who who. they'll. well all right I'll go this far with you. the Senate you know was a very close call Republicans have what three seats above the majority something like that. and and so Tom Hey yeah is from Kansas he was a congressman from Kansas and they've got this guy Kris Kobach who is radio active Republican he loses everything that he runs for and he's running the wants to run for Senate and so the Republican Party is going no no not Kris Kobach he'll lose his seat. Hey Mike Pompeii ale how about you and I said this last week Mike Pompeii will resign from being the secretary of state and will run for the U. S. Senate from Kansas and so you've got him running I got a running over there the Senate you've got I'm running to be president. why are you know why because he's in the office is watching trong is got the experience of the Ying Yang with regard to international relations you remember what he did privately they just want to be president of the United States more of this I will put your money tomorrow he will do it top of his class at west point so yes the military background military experience I think he might have been the also the top of his class at Harvard law so I mean the guys Brainiac he's really smart. I don't know if he would run against crop. but so if that doesn't happen trump verses who on the downside who do you say. dot that you know what if if if the if the show is shot in the air thank you for your in the air a warning is one in now because he's sharp he's quick I don't think Joe was going to get it at the end of the day I I just don't think he's quick enough to the event and you need to be able to pivot in these debates so I don't think it's going to be him at all I think it worn is probably gonna lead up towards the stretch resolution what the pick of Sir as a running mate but I think that's what they're going to end up going right. go ahead I'm sorry I know I'm I'm I got to run because the at past the time but all right I'll mark you down for Pompey Mike. if.
Becoming a Commercial Pilot Will Change Your Aviation Life
"GONNA be getting into a really cool subject today that I'm passionate about because I went through it myself. I feel like it's going to be very useful for you. At least those of you that are looking to fly for a living in those of you who want aviation as part of your life through the rest of your life right those who strive to fly every day so have you always wanted to learn. The fly always wanted it as a career career that you never quite found the time. You never quite found them money or maybe family life got in the way that's a really common one the family life and maybe have you still feel like you have the opportunity to do it but you don't necessarily know where to start. Now the mix of all these things it's it's a little bit scary. Maybe for you to feel this way that you know. Is it really gonNA work out too. Late is too much. Lots of different question marks. If this is going to be something that's worth it now. All Aviation isn't one of those things cheap to go in and screw up. It's not like you can go in on a semester of college like you can't aviation nation is just so so so expensive. I guess it depends on the college. You're going to but you don't want to become a commercial pilot only to then waste education. So is it going to be worth it. Is it going to be fun. Is it going to be a career that you enjoy. That's GonNa be something that we talk about. Throughout this podcast with the idea of what is it like. Where do you end up. Is it worth it that sort of thing all right so I think a lot of you. You have this story. That's kind of in the making our I you're. You're ready to be an aviation movie. Someone that you know trust through the mud and went through so much to get to where you're going and really anyone that has made it in aviation has their own amazing story of the hard work. It took to get to where they are so. I want to share a little bit about my journey but keep in mind that you are ready to write your own story about aviation. I hope that you choose to to do that. If you're on the fence about taking this leap of faith in doing this so through this you're gonNA see some of the challenges that I faced what my life is like now and maybe that Sunday the you look forward to and and maybe have a different idea of course on how that's going to A. B. Shaped for you because my life is not going to be your life. You want things differently. that's just the way it is but how getting to that point of becoming a commercial pilot doing this for a living commercial pilot means just the ability to take money for flying so you don't we're not tiny airline pilots here but how getting to that point will forever change the trajectory of your life so that's what I want to bring you through from my story and hopefully relating it to your story okay so let's go there so really quick. I WanNa go through my journey as a pilot is pretty be fun to reflect back on this but I think it's really illustrative of a lot of the things that everyday people go through so it wasn't exactly easy for me. I I didn't just do it all at once. When I was a teenager it wasn't paid for for me. Some of it was in the very beginning within it became very difficult later so feel like this is very relatable for a lot of you that have those challenges of time money and family because I felt like I went through every single one of them okay so I did catch the bug for aviation very early on I started in high school with the thought that I would become a professional pilot had the dream of becoming an airline pilot and it didn't end up going to college to become a pilot now. I only spent two semesters in college started. When I was eighteen. I got my private pilot licence at eighteen I I went to what's called a part one forty one college which is the training is very regimented and structured and and spent an okay amount of money. It was actually fairly affordable because it was a state college and really enjoyed. The process actually really liked my training there. However after that I went through several well years of of no further training other than just the remedial stuff from one airplane to the next ended up flying quite a bit in an airplane that my dad had purchased and at about five hundred hours I ended up getting my instrument rating at the age of twenty three so about five years later sure I got my instrument rating at the age twenty three whole lot of time in between a lot of cross country time a lot of great experiences that taught me a lot about aviation and I was fortunate not enough in that timeframe to to get a lot of flying for free because my my dad was paying for it so that's the place place where I come from. A bit of privilege is kind of how I started out. My private pilot wasn't that way I paid for a lot of my own private pilot licence but then some of my our building toward Lord my instrument rating was all paid for and I'm. I'm really really grateful for that. So I know what it feels like to know what it feels like kid to get that gift of having someone help you all right however just several years after that. I moved to Alaska and I was twenty five five of the time when I moved here and then a lot of things got in the way I ended up getting out of aviation for about five years life money I went through a divorce. I went through the process of healing from divorce. Now is a whole different story for another time over drinks if we ever meet up but not really something I focus on. I was just kind of rewriting my life here in Alaska and I think I think that's something that many people go through at some point is they may be disconnect from who they were as a child in the eventually becoming adult and I feel like when I came to Alaska I was emancipated. I didn't have any family here. I grew my life kind of on my own here ended up of course meeting so many great people and great friends that helped me along on the way so I started connecting with that new community. I ended up getting married to my wonderful wife Chelsea. She is my world. We started a family together. Are we grew our relationship together now my focus for quite a long time and I continued to grow my business. So Angle of attack is actually thirteen years old. I've been in in the business of training people for that. Timeframe started out in simulator. Training is some business to business with the famous or a well known aircraft manufacture that I don't WanNa name didn't have a good time doing that. It was it was soul crushing crushing that corporate life and so even though I was kind of moving back in the Va Shin in a more serious way at the time and doing these high dollar projects it taught me so much about what I didn't WanNa do aviation and I was looking forward to the fact that I had a family and I really needed a business that needed to grow oh and how some prospects there so. I thought that the business the business thing high-dollar thing would work but it wasn't for me. Never GonNa do it again and and decided that I needed to do something else and so I'm very grateful for that bad experience because it taught me what I really kind of knew all along but I was avoiding and then that was that I love to teach and I needed to become legitimate in my ability to teach which meant that I needed to get Mike commercial reading and I needed to get my flight instructor rating sure I had I had had years and years of experience doing my business and training meaning people and doing these training products but I wasn't actually a flight instructor. Even though I had a lot of flight time and I really wanted to do that so interestingly enough I decided that on the tail end of that project that I had such a horrible time in that I was going to do this that this was the way ahead. This was what I was passionate about. This is going to be my calling in aviation. That's where I'm at today and I absolutely believe it and I can't see an end end to that calling of wanting to teach people and make a difference that way I talked about that in the last podcast the one about where I've been what's ahead so long story short short continuing and finishing off kind of where I'm at now is I decided to get back into my training to get that commercial and see if I'd done at the worst possible time I started my commercial training right after my first baby was born and and then left home to focus on that when he was four months on sold so I literally left Alaska went down the California started that commercial training and it was it was gut wrenching to have to do that now. I just knew that I how do I had to do right like if I didn't do it right that second. I knew the writing on the wall. 'cause I'd been doing this. PODCAST already had been mentoring people people in aviation already and I knew that I would not be able to progress forward if more things in my family life and my career started to fall in a place that would be roadblocks prevent me from moving forward so even though I'm really blessed to have a family. I knew that like right away is only going to get busier. There's only gonNA GONNA get crazier. I also knew that as I switched the focus of my business is only to get harder and and money was gonna get tight eventually so I really wanted to start allocating funds to my own professional development and I knew that there is no better time than now and I I think in my story that there's anything you pull from is is it that is that is the key figure is that there's no better time than right. Now is never gonNA be easier than it is right. Now you know with a little bit of wiggle room to be smart about about when you start and how you start in aviation but you just gotTa do it and and I realized that kind of had this this moment that if oh I didn't do it now is probably never going to happen. I knew I was getting older. I was arrested pilot and I just had to go in and do it now because it had I've been at that time five or six years since I'd done a cheque right of any kind in any serious pushing aviation training I I struggled so hard in my commercial training. It was tough. I was very rusty. The knowledge that I thought I knew was very much is gone and I had to repeat a lot of that stuff that had just left my brain from being this spry early twenties guy to someone that was slowing down a little bit into my into my thirties and I know that sounds silly but just recognizing that those cognitive things do change. I struggled really bad and I actually documented this pretty well with a youtube series I did I think I ended up doing three or four videos on my commercial training and so you guys conceive visually what happened there it was a complete disaster but it taught me so much that the I needed to push through and I really wanted this dream in no matter what what is going to make it happen you know money was becoming an issue timeless becoming an issue whether it was an issue the entire time literally the DP DP he is someone who does the check rides who kinda passes you off from the FAA literally the DP got hospitalized and I had to reschedule my check ride like everything wrong that could have gone wrong happened to me and unlike before where it had someone helping me out say with my instrument training. This was all on my own like this is my own money any my own business my own family and and that was it now. I say that tongue in cheek because there were so many people that were good to me and helped me gave me free flight time and and friends of mine so I can't say that I did it completely alone but you know I think those things are are more common than not. What if you build a community around you in you in you. You do your part to make that community better. There's some reciprocity there so I had earned that reciprocity the city in a way from from some of those people still feel like I'm paying that back today but long story short it was a very brutal process to get through commercial license and then I immediately wanted to go into my flight instructor training now I did my commercial training in such a way worked with a CFI his name's Michael Michael that knew that was my eventual goal and so really a lot of how he was turning me through the process during my commercial was already getting me ready to do the FAI and so when I went into my cfi several months later it was it was a fantastic process. I had a great time. I'm doing it. I had the help of many great people through that process different. CFI's than Michael namely trace Clinton Dave her wig and the big one John Dorsey who helped me so much and it was just it was a smooth process and the CF. I check right for me okay because I had already been an educator because I'd prepared so well. I buckled down so much at the end here and and really just changed my mind about where I was
YouTube's machine learning can't keep up with its promises (The Daily Charge, 9/9/2019)
"Today on the daily charge getting emotionally and spiritually ready for whatever apple throws at US tomorrow more leaks surrounding the Pixel for Youtube say I failing to protect golden and the special surprise for National Teddybears Good Morning and welcome to C. Nets Daily L. E. charge. It's Monday September ninth. I'm Rigid Carrie Jones awesome. Let's kick things off with our top story today so back in February Youtube but made the promise to suspend comments on videos that featured kids aged thirteen in younger. This was following an outcry over pedophilia lurking in the comments videos with young children included comments with predatory links so youtube said it would just end comments on videos that featured miners who were thirteen and younger and even videos with older miners who could attract Iraq predatory behavior but fast forward to now six months later and Joan. You did a search on Youtube. You've found a number of videos still had comments on them videos with kids. What's going on yeah. It's still incredibly easy to find tons of comments on videos feature kids that are clearly infants toddlers lers preschoolers and then even some videos that show teenagers in this sort of predatory situations. Doing you know this whole thing kicked off because there was of log about a guy who did a search for bikini haul videos and fell tumbled into this algorithm ick like pedophilia wormhole all gross yeah very gross. If you search Teen Bikini Hall even now you can find teens wearing bikinis with comments that are inappropriate and it sounds like what Google was just using this algorithm to automatically detect if there was a kid in the video like what's what's wrong. Why are there still comments as video. I mean there's a couple of things going going on. One is that Youtube scale staggering who has five hundred MIL has five hundred hours of content uploaded every minute so from the beginning of when we started talking. There's there's already like five. Hundred hours have already uploaded. It's a lot but that being said they built themselves to the scale and whenever they have these problems they say hey. We've got machine learning. That's going to help us keep things in line and to a degree they are. We didn't find a ton like a slew of really predatory comments on most of these videos but it was still easy to find them and they made the commitment they said we're going to be disabling comments on videos that have minors younger than thirteen and even if they're at that scale machine learning just isn't catching enough for it to be. I I did one search and found over one hundred from one hundred different channels that had comments wasn't even digging deep this basic search yeah. It was a basic search for a kid focused subject. I searched pretend play and found videos. They range changed videos that had almost no views and no subscribers videos that had twenty million views there was one video that had over seventeen hundred comments and that was one after we contacted did Youtube and said here's a list one hundred videos from one hundred different channels all them by what you said is your policy should not have any comments enabled on them. That was one of the ones they disabled half the disabled comments on half of those after you contacted them yeah. They were cleaning half of them. Yeah Yeah and one of them was a video that had seventeen hundred comments already accrued on it so do they have a statement of like. Why do they any more time to get the you know the whole Algorithm writer. They didn't directly address. What why the things that we found slipped through the cracks. They said look we've taken down hundreds of millions of comments on lots and lots of videos. We're investing harden. China and they use these stats. Don't really say anything like they have a classified here that removes two times as many predatory comments okay. I don't know what that means because they won't tell us what that's off a baseline of what two times of two times three six they're not talking about that but like what do we really. We know what that means. They are not being transparent about where they actually stand on a promise. They made months ago between this and what happened last week. You definitely has to do do more in this area and that's why this matters at this point because you just promise last week that they would be going even further and relying on more machine learning to not only take away comments from videos for kids but also any personalized advertising and notifications into other things to keep watching that. There's also another Google story out today. There's there's a leaked promotional video for the Pixel for smartphone it popped up online Monday and the video appears to confirm some rumors that we've heard last week in the view you can see owners are controlling the phone with hand gestures and they're also controlling it fully with a series of voice commands like which just voice you could put photos. Send those photos to other. The people and you don't have to lift a finger. Cameras are also a big part of this video. It looks like you could take photos really well. In the dark even capture all the stars in the sky by taking a picture of the Milky Way. There's this big square cut out in the back for three cameras and an earlier leaked image. Midge does show the phone could come in a bright orange color along with black and white so a lot of leaks on the Pixel for funny timing for that Joan Down Down Shafei. It'd be funnier if all the previous leaks for picks of four have been from Google itself. This is one league. It's like an actual leak. It didn't come from Google so they didn't didn't have any control over the time. It's just one of those things where you go. Okay the Apple Events Tomorrow and we're all talking about the Pixel for so this is make it'll make things interesting discussions. I think we're GONNA be talking much about the Pixel for tomorrow. Though well it it is one of those things where people who are curious about it. They'll be hearing about it in a few weeks. Usually it's an October kind of event for Google and is the if these leaks are right. You got you know that square cut out in the back and we've seen that kind of leaked out with apple too so it's just interesting interesting. We're going to be coming to you live tomorrow. Covering that apple event a we have a pre show stream starting at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific. We're going to give commentary before the event during the event after the vent we have our team also chiming in from inside the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's campus in Cupertino so definitely stick around for that of course tomorrow for the daily charge.

You're listening to talking tech. Those are the three headlines from the weekend tack. Let's look back at them safer YouTube, the number two most visited website and apps. It would get serious about cleaning up its platform of bigoted video, something critics have been asking for years, meaning that parents could potentially get a little bit more comfortable about having their kids watching YouTube questionable. But a good place to start faster. Amazon wants to get products to your home, not in two days, not in one day, but instantly or within thirty minutes, the Taylor introduced its latest drone, which can fly vertically and is being targeted to ship out small items like toothpaste and other household goods within the next year. We'll see if the FAA agrees in opens up the skies to Amazon, less annoying. That's going to be the gist of this report today. Apple unveiled its latest operating system. Upgrade. Raid. I O S thirteen coming out in September, bringing two hundred new tweaks to how you'll be using the iphone. And if I had to sum up the highlights the key ones are about making our experience with the device less. Well, bothersome? So here, the ones, I really like send robo calls directly DeVos mail. A new setting will allow only phone numbers that are recognized the your contacts mail and messages to ring the phone, fabulous. I can't wait. And I hope it works, share on ipods pain point. You're on an airplane with your significant other in loving the movie on your laptop, which you're listening to via the air pod. Bluetooth earbud solution new share tab, which will allow both of you to watch the movie together fine photos. We take zillions of them every year and most of us have a really hard time finding the ones that we took several months ago. Where are they in favorites in an album? And what's the name of that album, anyway? So I think. People are going to really like this new, look, which is more pleasing to the eye and lets you sort photos by day month year. Additionally, apple says it will use machine. Learning to weed out the duplicates photos of receipts in parking lot signs to make for a more pleasing display. Finally, I really really, really love this last feature which didn't get talked about much at the keynote when apple demonstrated IOS thirteen we're going to have a way better reason to plug the iphone into the computer because in Iowa's thirteen it will show up as a storage device like a USB flash drive. So we'll be able to move files back and forth from the computer to phone without the pain point of having the Email files back and forth. I am dreaming photos that are shot on my camera and edited on my laptop that can finally be shown and Instagram without all the hassles of your past. Thank you. Apple now ask for YouTube the network guests over five hundred hours, new content every minute, and while it tries to keep a lid on things. Parents wouldn't want. Her kids watching, well, although submitted videos, are, frankly, more than machine learning artificial intelligence and some human oversight can handle. So now YouTube says it's got a new policy very strict. No hate videos are able to be shown on the network and their computers will pull them down. Good luck with that hope it works and Amazon at its Mars conference this week, which was all about artificial intelligence.

"five hundred hours" Discussed on Recode Media with Peter Kafka
"They might have actually been evaluated by an employee raider. This isn't been being a, a user of you're didn't see. So you guys use this that, and Susan had a similar stat at the brand front event say, you know this many videos. We're taking now even before a single view happened, and you're justifiably proud of doing it to me. It also seems like man that much garbage floating around your that people are injecting into your system that you've got to go deal with, and there's lots of other media companies that don't have to deal with us. They have their own problems. They don't have people sending eight to nine million pieces of garbage at them every quarter. Yeah. I mean a you know, this and Peter, as I said, you know, five hundred hours of content uploaded, every single minute, the corpus's large one of the things that I think does make YouTube. So special is this diversity of content that you find on the platform everything from, you know last weekend. For example, somebody tweet the door on my garage. I had to basically I looked it up on YouTube in terms of how to fix my garage door as you know. And I'm not good at that kind of stuff. But I was able to do it after a few minutes. And so there's like, like billions of those types of which are very good, lamb shoulder recipe from YouTube, so thanks. Yeah. Like that the end like, you know, it probably, you know, had a positive impact on your life is good. We'll have to grant to make your next. So we mentioned this brand cast of a couple of times says your event you do for advertisers. I noticed that Susan didn't spend a lot of time talking about, you know, the garbage on YouTube, which makes sense. You wanna you wanna celebrate what you've got there. But when you are talking advertisers, and publishers for that matter, what, what kind of response and feedback. Are you getting from them today? And how has that changed over the last couple of years? Yeah. So, you know, as you can imagine I spend a lot of my time talking to advertisers. Susan does as well. And it's been kind of a continuous conversation. I believe that they have seen the progress over the last couple of years. I think that they have seen them in a few buckets, they've seen them in this general bucket of how we approach problematic content on the platform where we remove of content as quickly as possible. We raise up a thorough Tate of voices, we reduce, you know, some of the even the borderline content from recommendations the, the change that you mentioned. And so they appreciate that. Part of it. They also appreciate the fact that we've built in more controls for them to be able to manage where their advertising campaigns run on the platform. And I don't mean you know, just Google preferred or not, or this channel versus not. But also taking into account, what is appropriate for their brands giving them that level of control..
What YouTube needs to do to clean up its kids act
"Talking tech is brought to you in part by northwestern. University offered in partnership with north Western's Feinberg school of medicine. The program prepares students for emerging opportunities across the healthcare spectrum. Details are at SPS dot northwestern dot EDU slash informatics. Jefferson Graham USA day, the weekend edition of talking tech and today were talking once again about YouTube and the giant cesspool that the world's most popular video network has become for kid videos. This is a problem that never seems to go away for YouTube. Now, what YouTube would like to be is a safe haven forever ties IRS to reach young viewers, primarily with its mix of original videos in a library with virtually everything ever recorded on video. But once again YouTube this week found itself under scrutiny for more abuses seemingly innocent videos of young girls doing. Gymnast ICs were hijacked by adult viewers commenting with with time stamps and links to child pornography videos elsewhere on the web so after being outed by youtuber expressing his rage in after YouTube lost, top advertisers, like Disney AT and T epic games in others. In response. Youtube said it would change its ways and disabled commenting on any video involving children is that enough to turn the ship around and stop the abuse. I mean, this is just the latest following years of folks who advanced conspiracy theories posting video suggesting for instance, that a Florida high school shooting never really happened which made it to the top of YouTube trending recommendation engine the last big brouhaha with kid videos was in two thousand seventeen when another blogger notice that people were we splicing videos aimed at children and inserting in sexual in violent content. Youtube response, then was that it would hire up to ten thousand human monitors to oversee and look out for videos that had no place on YouTube, but in network that receives five hundred hours of new content. Every minute seems to be playing a nonstop game of wack, a mole YouTube said this week, it'd disabled comments from tens of millions of videos that could be subject to predatory behavior. But they've got a long way to go a simple YouTube. Search Friday for girls gymnastics added in the word in automatically to the suggested search bar, which led to girls gymnastics in skirts and a link to a video called instant girl in short skirt from the erotic cloud channel in it. A preteen walks around a park egged on suggestively by the filmmaker. The video has fifty two thousand views ten comments, including this one from someone referred to as Mr. Robinson asking for. The girls contact the comments are not disabled, and there are many many more videos like this on YouTube that do not deserve to be there. So beyond clearing out videos, like this one what else does YouTube need to do to clean up its act one monitor and classify kids content kids programming is by far the most popular content on YouTube, even though you have to be over thirteen to watch. I think you tubes. Computers, should put a delay on every video this uploaded. That's directed at kids to be monitored. I either by computer or by human Haley Halvorsen who's a VP with the National Center on sexual exploitation told me that instead of waiting for users or the media to report offending videos to YouTube to get pulled down the company should look for warning signs and act, for instance, if a young girl makes a video in a swimsuit, and it has twenty views then it suddenly jumps up to two million. That is a big warning sign about online predators. She says, and it should send out alarm bells at YouTube headquarters. I'm skeptical that YouTube is gonna clean up this platform. I think this is. A problem. It's just going to go on and on and on if I can find horrible videos on YouTube that people who work at YouTube can find them too. And I wish they would start. Now, I'm Jefferson Graham with USA day. You've been listening to talking tech. What's your take on what YouTube should do at love to hear from you on Twitter where I'm at Jefferson Graham, police subscribe to talking tech wherever you listen online audio please favored the show on Stitcher, which helps more people find the show and as always thanks everyone for listening.

It wasn't like come talk to us in our copies, Irv chat room. That's right. No, you can talk to Tom in Dallas page and our chat room. It wasn't like that.

You didn't have a stack of those? I don't know what you if you didn't have a stack of five hundred if you didn't have the, you know, five hundred hours, there's nothing you can do on their except go to the help chats. So there wasn't very much to do. I experienced, you know, what's sad to that. Like, I guarantee that our listeners who have no idea what these discs are what like what we even talk about. Is they while still have a presence. They have. AOL has some sort of presence. But do people still have AOL wall? Some people have my mom like her Email address is still a oh, well, there are people who held onto the Email address. But they just go sign into the mail service through four three two one who could be who could it be? Eddie guerrero. A a not the most psychotically swale, but mid level, Eddie Guerrero. So someone just sent me an Email that reminded me of a bit that I've been doing. Did you listen to have you do you listen to Ebro in the morning today by any chance? Not today. Did you hear yesterday? When I started referring to James harden. His Jim Hardin. Did not I've been catching up though are the last one listen to was the cast one watts big. I must say if it was a work. Bravo like captivating audio and even if it wasn't still captivating audio. But even better made even better by the fact, that you you guys are able to role sometimes sometimes it's a work shoot. You know, what I mean, brother? The cast when walkout, and I love the drop that came from it that I play now cast one going y'all do what y'all go do do. Now for some reason on the Mike occas- show a few days ago out of nowhere. And I just wanted to bring this to the audience because I think everyone would find it major and start doing it in their own life and make the other people in their own life. Start questioning them out of the blue. I just started referring to James harden as Jim harden. And I think it's tremendous. I don't know why. But for some reason like he's such a James harden. And here comes Jeff hardy about to get some hardy on hardy action. The for some reason James harden is such a James that when you make it Jim it's like he's like an actor or something not the best basketball player in the world. Does what what's up with Jeff? I don't understand. But what a far cry is the hardest battle here..
"five hundred hours" Discussed on Giant Bombcast
"Only reason why it wasn't a thousand hours as opposed to the five hundred hours that I put it. Sure. Yeah. Massachusetts writes in and says, what do you think a Mario maker to would have to bring to the table in order to be a relevant product. You can't customize the experience too much because Mario games behave in a certain recognizable. Universal way I'm curious. If anyone has ideas, they could bring to the table that expand the experience character customisation. Sure. Recall. I would like the ability to create world, maybe it's set of like four levels with a castle at the end. There's something like that old or or even just like an over world map, you could customize that higher memory. Limit would be cool. I rarely hit the limit. Usually when I hit the limit is because I was doing. I could see that better ways to share and follow creators. But I'm not holding out for that. The poison mushroom from. Items more angry son from. We ever get angry son okeydokey level set. Up to US. Mario to it's such a different. Because you think you think about Mario maker like you can. That's on the fly. And to just doesn't adhere to any of those things. So I would love to do it would break that aspect of it, which I'm not married to that aspect. So it could be like if you started Mario level. It's a whole separate thing. Yeah..

"I I love it aren't that. Okay. Next. To Yuccas the games. No. Like five hundred hours of game play really double four. Yuck. An embarrassment of riches. It really is. So I did not love yakuza Komi one. And I think some of that is that the story in one plane to me again with the fuck is, okay. Komi and Kwami two are both remakes of the first two games. And how many times have had asked. The first one is using the zero engine occur to is using the Yuccas six engine with us all the spelled out for me before. And I will probably forget it. And I will say these are not just HD updates. They've added stuff to these games. They kind of rework certain sections of them. I think it's the existence of zero that makes a confused. Yes. Zero was made after one or two, right? Like, it's. Oh, yeah. Zero basic. It's a recent thing was made after one and two came out before Coombe e one another thing is that a lot of these started out as PS three games and then became PS four games. It's just a fucking. It's it's a Wild Thing. And I think they've done with the complicated. Lineage, they have done a pretty good job of trying to keep all that stuff together. Again. I did not love one because I knew the story in that one is kind of weaker. I was less involved in the stuff that was going on it. But to is a really good weird yakuza story. It goes in some directions pretty early on the the content. They have added to this one is pretty strong. They added the clan battle stuff from Jaka sex. There's a different roster of wrestlers playing gangsters in this game. But they're all old wrestlers. So there's a lot of very leathery old muscle. Japanese men. That you're fighting and that instead of reverse tower defense, it's just actual tower defense. They added the cabaret club stuff from zero into this is cure. You you can manage a cabaret club in this game. And has that whole system in it? And it's just like a really good redo of yakuza too. I mean, I the ones I've not played the originals of but I was invested in the story pretty much from the beginning. And it was way into it. And I don't know they just they put in a lot of work on these these these remakes, and I think that this is the one that I hooked into much more than the first. So it doesn't feel like a throwback doesn't necessarily feel like old game. No. I mean, they're aspects of it like not all the side stories voice acted which they are. Insects original games. Two for one into PSU games. Engine. Right, right. But I mean the game this is based on his APS two-game. Yeah. And so it's using the sixes combat system..

How to Work Fairly
"Welcome to the nightly rant. I'm Mike and I'm toria. This is the show where we talk about the awful things that have happened in our day, the awesome things that have happened in our day and all the things in between. Thanks for listening and we truly hope you enjoy. So today was. How to put it busy. I don't know. Busy is a strong enough word anymore. Since busy is our usual state of being and today was just more hectic. Yeah. I made an appearance on the bitter truth with Abe. Did you was it. Fun. We had a blast. He had a whole agenda that he wanted to go through. We didn't go through his. I here this coming back on our show next week as he will be on our show sin, you have to negotiate his agent has to contact mine agent. Nitrogen has to contact is agent, and then both of their agents has to contact your agent. And then when all three agents agree, then he'll be on our show, so he'll never be able to be on the show because I want to much money. Sorry, you wanted to much money as nothing to do with anything else. I'm never going to agree because y'all aren't paying enough. We pay you more than enough. Now you get to eat. It's good enough. What exactly do you contribute on? Why don't we talk about that for a second? What exactly do you contribute? He's trying to start a fight guys. He's trying to make me punch him in the kneecap. Again, you don't contribute though. You're even now I give you something to us to contribute and you veer back towards not contributing wise that how am I not contributing giant cock sucking asshole. That's better. Now you're engaging. Now, what are you trying to piss me off? Yes. Why? Because I want you to get a little Ranchi and go on a round. I've A read red Bobby. Bobby, but I don't want to rent a what's the topic tonight? Tell the people what we're going to talk about. So I would like to know why why people holy shit. Oh, do you? Can you think your giant face away from me right now? Why people from other countries think it's okay to tell you, they're going to charge you a lower rate for work, and then they just charge you like fifteen times the number of normal hours and end up making like twice the normal rate. We just did. We just did a little study here on what a person did for somebody that she knows. And she asked me what what I charge and list. I said an hour. My initial reaction was an hour on, here's why, because I think that you could actually do that in less than an hour, but then I opted to two hours because you know, there's always glitches like your computer reboots ones not supposed to or the internet is down at cetera. So you've got you. You have to account for that. It might take you longer. Right? So to ours was what I said. And if I were to charge sixty five dollars an hour. Our it would be one hundred and thirty dollars that I would be charging that person. And that's a pretty hefty rate. That's like a senior level rate sixty five dollars an hour. Dares came up to like two hundred and forty five at their measly like five dollar an hour rate because they well, it was the five dollars an hour. They charged him sixteen and a half hours for the same work eight times that yeah, so they were eight dollars an hour. Fifteen members, McKinney sense came two hundred and forty. Seven. That doesn't make any sense it's it does. No, it doesn't because that would only be four times as much, but they charged eight times as much. Fifteen dollars an hour. I'm sixty and a half hours. And if minus two hours than I would be eight times as much which doesn't add up to that. But you're really only four times as much he charged eight times as many hours. No, he charged four times as many hours charged. I don't. You're breaking my head. This is what the math says. Okay, don't argue with the man, the master all know what you're not calculating this correctly. So how many hours the charge sixteen and a half. Okay. Hold on. Hold on. Just told you hold on sixteen and listening sixteen and a half. No, I'm listening. I'm just confirming and I said to all right, and then year claiming that his rate is fifteen. Okay. And then I'm saying. My rate. Sixty five. Experts post pace, how spirit out. Okay. So that equals. Two hundred forty seven fifty. Two. Thirty. So this is what doesn't exist. How can I have charged. About half of what he charged yet. He had eight times the number of hours because your rate is four times what his right is. So you subtract that part out God. That's what I was missing. Math was messed up. I said, so I'm used my side of the math thousand minutes. I mean, I'm pretty sure this person crapped his pants at this guy been charging sixty five dollars an hour. Yeah, because that's. That's what I thought you were going to say to me. Well, what's interesting, what's interesting is there have been other projects, and this just seems to be the amount of time this person bills for this work. Was just really alarming. Yeah, would have been like eleven hundred dollars. Yep, which would be a nice pay day for someone like us. But anyway, it leads me to the Levy on the same path as these people like you get quotes from them sometimes and they're, they're quoting this like. Unreasonable number of hours like they're quoting you thousand hours for something you would. You know, it would take you a hundred, which means it would take a normal person, four hundred and they're quoting you thousand hours for it. Just like why? What? If you need? If you're charging me five dollars an hour, you're quitting thousand hours because you need. Normally take if it normally would've taken two hundred hours and you're charging thousand hours charging five times as much. Why didn't you just charge twenty five dollars an hour. You're still going to be cheaper than most people, but your your numbers that you give will be more reasonable yet you'll still be getting money you wanted to make and I am spending what I want to spend. Right. But that's why I insisted like this. Most recent one I insisted on flat fee bid because I don't wanna play with. Oh, it's another ex hours or you pay me this much extra asked for all three. You ask for the flat free rate and you ask for an estimate of how many hours it would take, and then you ask for what their hourly rate would be for anything out of scope. Therefore, technically asking them what their outrage. I forced them to tell me there then trick them into that when you think about it. Because if you're going to tell me that your hourly rate is ten dollars an hour, right? Right. But you're going to also tell me that the estimate is, let's say ten thousand dollars, but the number of hours at your estimating is five hundred hours while you're actually charging me twenty dollars an hour for the development part of the project, not ten dollars. So you know, it tells me a lot about what you're up to and what I can expect later. We'll because if they're screwing you at that point, then you know they're likely to. Screw with you later. But if they're charging you like if they're charging you like ten dollars an hour for the development time and fifteen dollars an hour for the scope you respect that is it's not planned for you understand. It's like when I packaged my hours well, or like the guy today, like the guy that like the guy today said. Would you if I had a longer term bigger project, would you would you be negotiable on your rates? We'll of course gonna be negotiable in my rape, right? Because I would rather get paid. I don't know, twenty percent less but be working. Have consistency. One hundred and eighty hours a month right? Three hundred dollars a month, whatever the hell works out to. But you know what I'm saying? Having that guaranteed income is worth more than trying to squeeze the rate. The rate is more for all. You only need me for four hours. This is my rate. I saw somebody in one of the groups the other day they were asking about how if their pricing seemed fair, and there they were charging like they doing like packages of hours. Okay. Okay. So they had one that was like forty hours for a month, which is perfect for like, most people would tell you hours a week, okay, whatever. And then so they're their rate for that. Let's just say it was four hundred to make an nice Easter number and then there if you go over your number of hours, hourly rate was higher, and I think that's totally fair because if they're under the number of hours, you're still getting your four hundred dollars. It's just if they go over and require more additional time. It's taking away from potential your other clients, and that's exactly it because with the package deal, you can say to yourself. This is how many man hours I can cover. I just got forty from this person right now. I can only cover that minus forty eventually get to the point where it's at or close to zero, right? We'll when they go over the when they go under the forty that doesn't affect your lay out here because you just have more time to work on other projects, right? But when they go over it, you gotta charge the more than the package deal because they didn't buy it as a package deal was under, like his family time is running away from other word. But what some places will do is if you charged like in that example, four hundred dollars for forty hours. Dell offer another ten hours for one hundred dollars, right? So they'll still allow you to get the ten dollar an hour rate, but you've got to buy a block hours and that's where the trick is. If they want only one hour if they only go forty one hours instead of forty, big new, make them by a block of ten. You just made ninety dollars on that deal with. Interesting about most of these people who do the packages. Say our thirty day packages. As in you get those forty hours for thirty days and if you don't use them, you use them. Yeah, right. Rollover hook, my guess is that the successful ones. Somehow factor in of well, couple months in a row. They used five hours less. So there's an extra ten hours. So this month they went over by two. I'm not charging them for that. I would think that that's what I would do. Like for example, if I was getting a forty hour package from somebody Meles thirty two hours this month, and then they used forty two hours the next month. They wouldn't be being built for the wound guess what guess what used me? Think of something, you know, we have our vital factor meeting coming up soon. And if you think about it, if you were to do a business line, that was all packages. That's what you'd data exactly what you would be doing is tracking the dollars that you made more and how much tiny put in. Because if if you were selling just to keep it in even number again, two hundred hours a month. Well. At your normal hourly rate. That might be four thousand dollars, right. Okay. You might only make. Three thousand dollars because you sold in packages, but you also might only work. One hundred twenty hours right with that three thousand dollars. So yeah, while you're on the hook for more hours, you hardly ever have to work that many hours. So you're you're earning in long run, you're actually earning more for our yes packages after work out that way. Because because I feel like when you end up with a client that makes you track your time diligently and I'll just gets to most people are going to be honest, and they're not going to make as much money because they're going to be honest. But then if it's the package thing, you just need to make sure you're giving them the value that they're looking for and they're happy right. If it takes you forty hours takes forty if it takes you ten then great for you as long as you're giving them the value they're looking for. Right. That's exactly true, nuts. And that's values the key, right? And really the way you get people to sign. On with the first being different differentiation don't be don't do what everybody else does. Change some of what everybody else does make it make it a little bit different. And I don't even mean do what everybody else does plus some because that makes it really easy for them to copy you. You pick and choose what you're good at out of what everybody else does and natural you focus on in you're the best at that. Right. And then guess what you're going to have clients that need someone who's organized. Go to your skill. One of your strengths is organization. They're gonna utilize you because the are not gonna wanna pay forty dollars an hour for somebody who's excellent every single skill at top level executive level assistant, right? They don't wanna pay for that, but they don't have to. They only need help in this area and this area. So they find somebody who's cheaper, who's really good at those two things. Exactly. Save money. Exactly. They go. There's a virtual assistant post for you. Listen to this episode and refresh your memory and right the post on time this time. Still haven't turned in the other. I now dangerous. She writes the content calendar, then she takes part of the content calendar responsibility on yourself, and then proceeds to not make it on time for the content calendar kind of cracks me up to all dissolves all. Well, to be fair, you were supposed to write all the blog post, and I was just trying to help. But at this point I'm just making it worse than not helping at all. So. Tuck it is makes me laugh, but. I. I get frustrated by those kind of companies that do that stuff because it gives everyone a bad name and then people like you. I always higher offshore people because I saved money and then you ask them like how much money do you really set eve, right? That's why like another thing that they used to do, they're not people are more wise to it now, but this is why used to make money managing those projects is they used to tell you, it's going to take a hundred hours and then it every step of the way they would argue what's inspect, what's not inspect all. It's going to be this much and most people, they don't mind paying two thousand three thousand four thousand five thousand for a good application. But when you tell them that it's only going to be a thousand dollars to do exactly what it is they want for an application. You don't wanna be telling them it's gonna cost extra. So what I would do, I would always come in and I would work with the Indian company to create a spec for this company. How charge them three hundred and fifty dollars right with a spec. And I tell them that if you hire me, I will charge you twenty five percent of whatever they bid. So they bid two thousand. I'll charge five hundred to manage the project flou- k. but and out of that money I guarantee you that we will finish on time. And they would pay me, you know, three, whatever, to create this back. Then they dispatched would be perfect. Then they pay me like, you know, it was two grand or whatever twenty ground, let's say. And so they would pay me another forty, seven hundred dollars. And I would manage the project and what's great about it is each of those projects took me about five hours a week to manage, so making a thousand dollars an hour, managing projects by using that methodology, it worked really super well. Now, places became a lot less honest will you now they don't nest. They don't lie about. They don't try to pull the wool over your eyes after the fact that they pull the wool over your eyes prior to the fact like that kind of stuff like billing sixteen and a half hours for two hour maximum job, right. When I heard on their three different databases, I guarantee there's something about his site that's running three different databases for whatever reason, three different times he had changed the URL. It is literally opening the file in a text editor and doing the search and replace it would take you about as long as it takes to open the file, hit control, f. type in what you're searching for, what you're placing it with and hitting enter. That's about how long it would. Take you to do that, and he and multiply that by three. So if it took an entire minute for all three total, it was a lot. And then they get away with it though. People paint that still only two hundred and fifty dollars, and then they tend people tend to get into the mindset of old American developer would have been sixty five dollars an hour time. Sixteen will know the Merican developer would have been sixty five dollars an hour times too because I wouldn't have charged do sixteen for that. Yes, right. And that's where people need to realize that they'll save money with the quote, more expensive company, right. It's a blog post for you have that on my. Content list? Yeah. I try to keep a content list because one of the things in my time engine system is based off of his lists and you're not supposed to try to keep things like that. Your head, you're supposed to get it on a list. And then when you need something from that list, you review the list and pull it off. Sense. You know, that's why today I had you picked the best of episodes for last week, and then I got because I had already picked to these. We've put out four. Now, as of this point you picked to picked to. And really you picked you picked too. I picked one. We picked one because the trash back basketball, our like my love. It makes me laugh every time I see the dumpster or the Johnny laugh every time I see that guy that looks like dirt alert here. He still lives here, looks like mister clean, but I'm surprised with all the turnover on that side. He still lives here. He lived here before we did too. He's lived here for a long time. Did he live here before we did. I didn't think so. When when I captured him in the laundry room that day, it was like right after I moved here. And he was saying that he lived here for like two years. I don't think the girlfriend had lived here for two years. I think he lived here by himself and then she moved in God. Then she had baby. Nice really lives here. Yes. Interesting. Well, I think that if you think. I think we've beat the topic to death of these people who scam shit out of other people. Yes. Okay. Then.

Life-size Lego Bugatti Chiron actually works, has over 1 million pieces
"Team at LEGO challenge themselves with building a full life size version of Bugatti Chiron and it only took them around one million LEGO pieces to do it. They started assembly in March Technic. If you didn't know is a line of LEGO. That includes things like rods gears axles Motors and other more machine like pieces that will interconnect with the traditional go pieces. It only took the team and I say only ingest thirteen thousand five hundred hours to build this replica from scratch. And there are indeed components in there that aren't actual LEGO steel frame. The batteries, there's two batteries in there, the power it some custom, three d print gears, and then they used actual body wheels, but most of the rest. Of what you see is painstakingly constructed from LEGO bricks, believe it or not. When I I saw this, I was like, there's no way at, apparently it is. They even test drove the thing. It got up to a whopping thirteen miles per hour. They say it can top out at nineteen miles per hour. I, I have to, you know question at what speed, those bricks. Just start shaking part regardless. This is insane and I love
