Fresh "Flake" from The Newsroom

"Composed this tribute to Philip on degeneration he represents. Patriarchs analogy. The weather in the window this morning is snow on seasonal singular flakes. A slow winters final shiver. On such an occasion to presume to eulogize one man is to pipe up for a whole generation that crew survival was always the stuff of mine a miracle. Became sure in orange crate Coric. ALS fought ingenious wars finagle triumphs at sea with flaming decoy boats. Inside step torpedoes. Husbands to duty. You enrolled their plans across billiard tables and vehicle bonnets. Regrouped at breakfast. What their secrets were. Was everyone's guests on Nobody's business. Great grandfather's from birth. In time, they became both in a court and outer case in a family heirloom of nesting dolls. Like everything severely, man, their boot prints.

A Prayer for Greater Confidence in God

"Confidence in god by meg bucher read by liam martin. Now when all the people were baptized. And when jesus also had been baptized and was praying the heavens were opened and the holy spirit descended on him in bodily form dove and a voice came from heaven. You are my beloved son with you. I am pleased luke. Three twenty one through twenty two soft thick flakes of snow accumulated an illuminated. The dark hours of morning. It's a marshmallow day my youngest daughter exclaimed. She bounded down the stairs online school cancellations and quarantines hadn't told her wonder and excitement for data to play in the snow. I'd overheard her praying for marshmallow day the night before my husband and i watched the weather and anticipated a snow day but her surprised joy overflowed onto me as her smile. Lit up the room that morning. The sky lit up the day. Jesus was baptized a day. Four told in scripture alongside so many prophecies fulfilled by christ's early life death and resurrection. John who had simply come to prepare the way for jesus baptized him. As the dove hovered. Over christ's heavenly had in. God spoke that he was pleased. Luke mentions the baptism of jesus almost in passing the new bible. Commentary explains he wants his readers to know that jesus was praying at the time and above all that he received a divine revelation. Prayer is powerful. An often overlooked daily. We rush about powering through difficulty and hardship without laying at the feet of our savior. We don't ask for help glance up to say thank you. We fail to get quiet enough to listen for in here. His encouraging guiding voice of wisdom comfort direction

NASA concerned about space's growing trash problem

"Is now more than 128 million pieces of trash. Left over from 128 Million, yes, left over from degrading satellites, byproducts of past flight missions and other cosmic accidents, and they just keep circling the earth. They just keep spinning around the earth. That is, um That's just the debris that we actually have the ability to detect. But here's the problem even like paint chips. Paint chips can actually be a fairly deadly if they are, you know, flying around at warp speed around the planet. And that's what that's what's happening out there and again when the astronauts get out onto the space station to try to fix stuff. I would think that you know, it could be kind of Bad situation. It was I quarter inch. Let's see. Uh oh. It was 2016 1 of the European Space Agency Astronauts took a picture of a quarter sized dent. It was in a glass window of the international space station. It turned out to be a tiny little teeny fleck of space junk. It was a paint flake. From a satellite. It was, they said few thousands of a millimeter across They said, not much bigger than a single cell of E. Coli. And it caused a quarter sized Out in a Pane of glass in one of the windows. I mean, seriously, You gotta watch out that something like that hit you in the helmet. You're not gonna have a good day. Um When it when something that small could do that much damage. Of course, the bigger stuff is going to be a really, really bad day 34,000 pieces of moderately sized debris. That's anything larger than four inches. Would just pretty much take out an astronaut. Anything bigger than that. Uh or anything bigger. I guess. Then the little tiny fleck of paint would be catastrophic. All comes down to full lot of philosophy, philosophy and velocity. Uh, Anything circling the orbit? With the space station. They're moving at 17,000 Miles an hour, 10 times faster. Than a speeding bullet. So the key is I think you wanna be rotating with the trash. Or simply tried to avoid it altogether.

Spacewalking astronauts manage possible ammonia leak

"Well, space walking astronauts are back safe inside the international space station after reading right ring their suits of any toxic ammonia. AP correspondent Ben Thomas. With more ready for me to come out, NASA's Victor Glover and Mike Hopkins had to take extra safety precautions after stepping outside Working on the space station's external cooling system. They had no trouble removing inventing a couple of old jumper cables to get rid of any ammonia still lingering in the lines. But so much spewed out of the first hose that mission control worried some of the frozen white flakes might have gotten on their suits. NASA did not want the ammonia, getting inside the space station and contaminating the cabin atmosphere. But after a nearly seven hour spacewalk, mission Control said the astronauts had spent so much time in sunlight. Any ammonia. Residue would have baked off.

How To Know When To Strip or Sand Furniture

"Let's dive into some tips. So the first category is when you get a piece a lot of times you have to strip it down or sand it. So do you know in distribute it versus sandy. Do you have any tips for that while you have to figure out if it's wood or if it's veneer and you're go from there for me. Normally the way i tell is like the weight so if it's pretty like substantial heavier is normally would versus like veneer like md. Ask fours and stuff and then like you can always stay on like maybe the back and just kinda like get a little bit in and then see what happens when you get that. I lay off and you can kind of tell if it is like because you're obviously going to hit the md board pretty quick with your sander. And then if you do then you gotta start stripping disturbs driven out if you hit past the grain into a board that looks like well like either particle board or not would not i will never yeah so in some of it's personal preference. I know even real wood pieces. Some people prefer to strip instead of sand. Cassia ending really does take off like a layer and then if you have certain things like that are more ornate strippers really better because some stuff. You can't stand like i know you're dresser or your nightstand from last season. Had that really intense like brady would kind of crazy now. A super crazy but i took so long for that piece actually ended up taking off the like actually detail of that would. He's because i couldn't strip it couldn't like sand it like there was nothing i could do to get the paint off and so then to remove that actually just like paint over that do you remember neck. turn out so good. I still have another one. That has never finished. So that's all non dance and then another thing. A lot of people wonder about sanding is kind of what grits to use all. Save the secret magic bullet for you to share with everyone you love. But just in general you kind of have to grits. You have your shaping grit so that's gonna be lower numbers like eighty hundred sixty and those are going to be kind of shape the wood and then you have your smoothing grits. So that's higher numbers like one twenty two twenty and that's going to smooth out your would before finish so usually if you have paint that you're just trying to strip you can start with eighty or a hundred you don't really need to go lower than that and then you work your way up if you wanna paint you can stop around to twenty but if you're finishing your would what is. Our magic secrets are manager. Cigaret- that we just found out about getting are amazing sander mirka sedan. Was that if you three. Twenty grit neighbor. The three twenty is like i never realized you should like go above two twenty. Three twenty is like next level against just so smooth. It flake like butter for real. I mean every time. I finish something. And it's with three twenty eyesight. I wish people can actually feel this because it's like nothing you thought before. I don't know it really is like such a game changer.

Space Junk Chronicals

"Since nineteen fifty seven. Humanity has been launching satellites into earth orbit. It's estimated in the last four years almost nine thousand satellites in total have put into orbit for the vast majority of space age. There was never a plan for what would be done with the satellites after their lifetime. They were launched without any thought as to how or if they could ever come down the nine thousand or so satellites. Five thousand are still in orbit. Two thousand our service in three thousand are dead. D satellites are usually quite large. They can vary in size from a bus to a box and they aren't the real problem when it comes to space junk the big problem is debris when you send up a rocket there's all sorts of miscellaneous parts on the upper stage of the rocket that holds the satellite. That will go into orbit with it. This can include metal panels bolts screws and even flakes of paint. You'd think that given how big spaces that space junk might not be a problem as douglas adams noted quote space is big really big. You won't believe how vastly hugely mind. Bogglingly big it is suppose you had a million pennies that would be enough to easily fit in a minivan. Now let's suppose you distributed those pennies all over the world including the ocean and antarctica. Each penny would have one hundred ninety. Seven square miles of space or a single penny would have a square which was fourteen by fourteen miles factor in that the lowest earth orbit is a sphere larger than the earth. And that there's a vertical dimension where we could put pennies at different elevations. Then it would seem that space junk was a big problem if the object just sat there. That's true it wouldn't be a problem however all that junk isn't just sitting there. It's orbiting earth at extremely high speeds. Any piece of space junk is probably travelling at at least seventeen thousand miles per hour when something is traveling that fast no matter how small it is it can cause a great deal of damage. Moreover everything is on a slightly different orbit that means over time these orbits can cross and the longer something remains in orbit the greater the odds that these past will eventually cross and that things will smash together some of the things which are floating around in space include two cameras that got away from astronauts players a screwdriver or wrench a full toolbag garbage bags a lens cap a spatula and microscopic flakes of rocket propellant and that is on top of all the rocket debris and dead satellites if a ship with astronauts were to be hit it could lead to the deaths of the crew if important satellite were to be hid it could lead to a loss of critical communications. Gps signals or observational capabilities. This isn't just a theoretical problem. There have been cases of collisions in space. The space shuttle headed many tiny impacts from debris in space on the seven space shuttle mission. In one thousand. Nine hundred three. The front windshield was hit by a fleck of paint which damaged the window. It looked very similar to what happens when a rocket. your windshield damage. To the shuttle's he tiles was so common that the eventually began flying the shuttle backwards in space so that the engines which weren't used during re entry took most of the damage. The shuttle endeavour was hit by an object so large that its radiator looked like it was hit with a bullet. The international space station has to move on average at least once a year to avoid space debris the soviet cosmos twelve. Seventy five satellite was hit by an object in one thousand nine hundred eighty one which was believed to be the first case of a satellite being destroyed by space junk. Perhaps the worst case occurred in two thousand nine when the kosmos twenty fifty one satellite which was dead smashed into the iridium thirty three satellite at a relative speed of twenty six thousand miles per hour. These collisions and there have been several more only make things worse. In the first case three hundred objects were created from the collision in the second there were suddenly thousands of new objects thrown off on different trajectories in orbit in two thousand seven. The chinese government didn't anti-satellite missile test. That blew up a satellite in space creating tens of thousands of pieces of debris this problem of junk causing collisions which then creates exponentially more junk risk. Something called the kessler syndrome. This hypothesized in nineteen seventy eight by nasa. Scientists david kessler. He proposed that collisions could start a cascade of debris which would cause more collisions and even more debris rinse and repeat.

How Can We Hydrate Our Skin?

"Hey everyone welcome to the science of beauty. a podcast from allure. I'm michelle lee. The editor in chief. And i'm jenny by executive beauty director. And on this podcast we're gonna be diving into the science behind beauty and the products that we are always talking about an testing at a lower. Today's episode is all about hydration. And because we're taking this deep dive into the world of k. Beauty hydration as possibly the most important topic. That's right michelle and in our previous episode on layering. You heard dermatologist. Marie jin talking about the importance of hydration and how layering can help lock in moisture. So how do we help. Hydrate our skin in the first place to answer that question and more with dr christine lee. A senior research and development manager with age see our partners in producing this episode. Christine can you introduce yourself and tell us a bit about your background and pristine lee on the senior. Rnd manager overseeing unilever space. care business. In north america. I received my phd in two thousand in physical chemistry from the university of florida. And then i joined. Unilever and of worked on the hd brown for about two years so christine agency is based in seoul south korea. And i know you work really closely there with researchers. What can you tell us about. What's trending beauty right now. So in asia a lotta. The skincare formulations can karan's really focused on achieving bright hydrated glowing skin in korea specifically hydrating formulas are really key to rejuvenating the skin so it looks and feels smooth and soft but in addition in asia consumers just are so familiar and comfortable with multi step routines really elaborate application techniques. Like they talk a lot about double cleansing deep massaging. They'll even talk about like rubbing product in with your knuckles. They talk a lot about slapping and patting and tapping. so they're you know they're just really familiar and comfortable with application techniques that we don't talk about in the us as much. The other thing too is really interesting. About the asian consumer is the way the words they use to describe the look and feel of their skin that they're looking for so they'll talk about or glassy or porcelain skin and that much of this is really foreign to the american woman but it just really shows kind of the level of involvement Asian women have in their skincare routine. It's like my perfect skin. Everything you're saying. I'm like yes. Yes yes more of that please. You mentioned hydration which is of course the topic of our episode today as basic as it seems. Can you just define hydration for us as it relates to skin. I mean short really. Hydration pretty much means increasing the skins water content really at the end of the day. Dry skin is more than just a lack of water. When your skin is dry or dehydrated it can start to appear flaky doll. It really starts to feel uncomfortable tight irradiated. It can start to feel like you're getting more sensitive. This really is indicating a much more fundamental breakdown in the Healthy biological processes that are intended to keep skin soft and supple and smooth skins normal renewal processes slow down in absence of sufficient hydration which then leads to further dryness than it starts to pull your skin into this downward spiral alright. I don't love where this is going. What happens in the downward spiral. Our skin's natural explanation processing slowed down which leads to an accumulation of skin cells on the surface and these kind of accumulated or aggregates of skin cells. Start to form flakes which are another indicator of dryness and drier skin surfaces also lead to increase surface texture roughness which traps light which causes the skin to lose translucence and appeared dull and lifeless whereas hydrogen scan on the other hand is smooth radiant feel softer more elastic. More comfortable touchable. So it's not religious the dry or white hydrated it's really kind of biologically related. Wait supposed to versus comfortable. Soft smith hydrogen.

Yeast tastes like a mouth full of gravel. That is according to one wall street journal report but whether you eat them with milk or sprinkled over ice or yogurt these tough little nuggets have softened enough to keep the brand going for more than one hundred years but like so many products during the pandemic a combination of supply chain and manufacturing issues have made them tough to come by. Since late last year they're manufactured using proprietary process. That is tough to replicate. The company said in a statement. Usa today and what happens when bran loyalists get wind of a shortage. You know what happens. They start hoarding.

Why You Need a Signature Scent and How to Find One

"So. I used to wear this perfume knows wearing. I wore it for years. But then i i kind of stopped wearing. I don't know it didn't feel as me. so is it possible to like change. Your signature scent. Is that an absolutely. Yeah for sure we all kind of grow into you. Know what we appreciate more as our paced matures. Let's just say it that way. I think i think we all were like bubble gum lip gloss stuff white. Had you know and all of our sense tend to be more sweet or Fruity and those kind of things and we just kind of grow up in. so yes. you're your even your censh- taste can definitely change over time So it's totally normal to have you know maybe a signature scent when you were younger and then you maybe find something new. I have you know so many people that. Tell me that all the time. They're don't always wear this. But i found something new and this is it and so that's cool. It's neat to be able to transform yourself in that way i mean i. I don't really know a lot of people who i think. When i was growing up in the movies you would see all of these sort of boudoir and people would have like so many different perfume. Bottles reality. People don't really mix up their sense like they would. Let's say a lipstick shade. yeah. I think that it's wants people kind of know what they like. Most people tend to stick with it. Some people might have two or three different things on the counter. And that's a good thing. You're on your bathroom counter to have something that's a little bit sweeter for maybe daytime something. That's a little bit. You know a little bit deeper for like inter Even definitely switch it up with the seasons or whether you're out for the day or out in the evening That's okay. But i think having one that is continuous goto that you kind of fall back to is is always a good idea. Well i have. I'm so glad you today. Because i feel like prior just around like last february aroma. Valentine's name like. Oh i need to find a new sent. You know i feel like. I was going khloe phase at that time and i. I don't know i i really like it but i don't know if that's what i was going to stay married to. And then covert hits and not only do it hits but i got it and i lost my sense of smell. I'll be honest for the past. Year i've been wearing anything It comes to trying to find a signature set. Like if you don't have one. Where do you even begin. I think you begin with just things that you already know and are familiar with and what you're what you gravitate towards so most references are gonna fall into one of four categories. It's going to be woody. it's gonna be floral. It's going to be fresh or it's going to be orientale and so once you have an idea of what each of those are what they smell like. It's a lot easier to then find a signature scent that because you know. I liked something for example. That's fresh those are your kind of citrusy those things it's kind of like fresh cut grass the the clean water smell those. Those sites have smells that once. You know that that's what you'd like when you are reading about perfumes and they say they have you know notes of of citrus than you know that something you gravitate towards and give it a try that way so there are ways to figure out your signature scent even if you're like shopping online like we're all doing right now because we're you know can't go out of the house budget and so we're shopping online and i get it but there are still ways if you read the description of a properly studied the notes that are there you can decorate figure out at least get close to something that you know will be you know more your style. I feel like we just went through is three said. I'm like a bright citrusy which was What was the category for. That look shot fresh go or the other categories starting with equity like. Give us some ideas of woody. So what is going to be your more Kind of deep pachulia okay. musk's those type of sense are going to be a little bit more. Are you gonna be your in your woody category Floral is going to be your typical florals. You've got a half The any kind of rose and he kind of lavender All those that those kind of bright florals that you're used to That are very common in a lot of of of female perfumes. And then oriental. We don't feel quite as much. It's a little bit warm kind of spicier. A lot of men's colognes tend to have bass notes that are that oriental women's if they have those base notes they usually top it with something a little bit floral to balance it okay. So a lot of times you can play with more than one of those categories with. That's why i always tell people figure out you know kind of lied about those or categories figure out things that fall into those categories that kind of sparked your interest and look from there. I find what. I'm seeing a lot in in the marketplace or what i was seeing. Was that a lot of these sense that would be typically more masculine. Women are now starting to wear right. Like the lualaba son tall which to me is seems to be almost a very masculine. Send out. I know a lot of women. Women who are beautifully Yeah i am a big believer in the we. Don't call our sent feminine or masculine I believe that you know anybody can wear any sense with like especially because since change a little bit with your own body chemistry so you can put it on gonna smell a little bit different on everybody. I've worn colognes. You know quote unquote what they've labeled as cologne most of my life. I love a good unisex sense. And i really tried to educate people that unisex a real thing you know you remember. Do you remember. Ck one or you too young. now remember it. I mean. I actually just as saying right now. I can smell it one to me. Always this is so weird when you first open. A box of kellogg's frosted flakes the the first initial smell. And it's not like a sugar smell. Cq on a yeah. I shit you not. I mean not. Anyways there's something in it. Has that sort of ck one sentence but that's the thing that came out now and a lot of people were like. Well it's for both guys and girls so guys didn't want to wear because they thought it was too early and girls didn't wanna wear it. 'cause i thought it was gone and then people started to realize that you know not everybody but most people are trying to attract the opposite sex wearing something that both sexes would like anyway so it it become more popular thankfully and i agree that you know sense smells so different different people you know even between the same girlfriends can all wear go out for not wearing khloe and it's gonna smell slightly different on every single one of us. You're fairmont's your body chemistry the oils on your skin already all about gonna play into it. Do what it actually smells like. Put the same exact fragrance on somebody. It can smell very fresh and bright on one person in berry suite on another person and that's just the way it happens with with a lot of things so you have to find. That's why we say your signature sent you find one that works with you that you liked within also

We Finally Know Exactly How Bad The Pandemic Has Been for Airline Pilots

"We see in plane and pilot magazine. We finally know exactly how bad the pandemic has been for. Airline pilots and the numbers here are pretty staggering and eliminating max indeed. I was really quite stunned to take a look and see. Just how bad things are. I mean we all know that the airlines have been hit disproportionately hard here during the pandemic that know some pilots have been out of work. This was a survey done by goose. Which is a pilot. Recruitment firm not for birds but for a and they found that nearly half of all pilots worldwide. Either looking for work or on furlough which was shocking to me. They said that thirty percent of the people surveyed were out of work and looking and other seventeen percents that they were furloughed awaiting further news and additional. Six percents said they were still employed with their airline. But we're doing non-flying works pretty stunning. Half half the pilots Basically out of work or looking for work in this comes from a survey of two thousand five hundred ninety eight pilots. This survey was open for four weeks just to kind of set. The timeframe in it closed october thirtieth twenty twenty and it was anonymous survey thirty questions and the survey was designed for pilots of all ranks. First officers second officers and cadets in some of the data in this is just really really fascinating and we'll have a link to the survey report which was done in conjunction with flake global. And a you just peruse some of this and find some really really interesting interesting things but By way of demographics of those almost twenty six hundred pilots forty-three percent of the respondents were in europe. Nineteen percent from the middle east and africa eighteen from asia pacific Twelve percent from north. America six percent from south america and two percent from china. So it's pretty Pretty global in the survey touches on things like pilot retention pilot job security employee engagement even Stress mental health wellbeing things like that so Some really really interesting statistics Couple of the ones that i like. Maybe if you guys saw some things that piqued your interest but one of the questions was when do you think aviation will make a full recovery to pre covid levels and not. Surprisingly only ten percent said up to one year the biggest spike was up to two years. Thirty four percent of the pilots thought up to two years but twenty eight percent up to three years and longer than that twelve percent four years. Ten percent five years and six percent said they thought it would never never be the same So that's the pilot's perspective. No one was. Do you think your mental health has been affected by the pandemic and here there is a direct correlation between the age of the pilot and the pursuit pilots that group in In how many of them thought that their mental health had been a acted for those pilots. Fifty five to sixty four years old thirty. Two percent thought their mental health had been affected for pilots forty five to fifty four years old but younger thirty six percent when we go down to thirty five to forty four year olds forty four percent of them thought. Their mental health has affected in the twenty five to thirty four year old group forty-nine percent and pilots under twenty four years old fifty eight percent of them thought their mental health had been affected by the pandemic so. I thought that was a really interesting result. I wasn't totally surprised by the The differences once. You mentioned the difference. I thought okay but it's the younger folks are having a tougher time. Think about someone who's twenty four years old this may be the first In a bad thing that's happened to them in their in their career folks are in their mid fifty s have probably gone through multiple things in the past and probably a better able to to ride through a downturn whereas you know young folks just not have that cushion of You know savings built up to right through. Its doesn't surprise me but still it's a large large number folks nearly six percent under a twenty-four saying mental health. Been impacted the the demographics of the respondents in terms of gender. Was you know the numbers are kind like the same numbers we've seen for a long time. Almost all male four percent female in one percent preferred not to say. I'm not sure why they would prefer not to say in. An anonymous survey but four percent identified themselves as female Which really kind of hope that that number would be coming up. Ron wouldn't when you're looking at programs With youth today. do you see more. young girls. Becoming interested involve is that number higher than four percent. I hope well Here were making a concerted effort to make sure it's higher than four percent Right now we're preparing for Air venture and we've got A program within the air venture program called girl venture We've also got One for adults named Women's sore And between those two we really want to invite women to get more involved and engaged in aviation and so We see a higher than i would say. Four percent level here

Automatic Summarization

"My name is martin luther before and i'm a vc student at the university from saddam. Main research is focused on natural language processing and information retrieval. And i'm especially interested in how we can learn from humans and human cognition to improve our ai models before that. I did my master's degree in artificial intelligence at my bachelor's degree in mystic so liked to take the knowledge i also have from the back roads and the light microbes research everything. I've done related to natural language processing carries with it a sort of computer science bias towards it. I don't have your background in linguistics. What advantages does that give you in your approaches to natural language processing. It's quite interesting. We've seen the developments. From the early days. I would say wehrley Quite prominence when we wanted to model language greedy looks into specific linguistic structures. And at least things then we went into an era. Our people throw that away basically no linguistics of war Data only we only want to learn patterns from data and always see a bit of shift back again so people try to incorporate knowledge from linguistics into models with the idea that they come maybe learn everything from data per se or if we have named with knowledge that might gives an advantage if we decide like these are models that could work well for this task for example is a pretty exciting thing to see that we go back in the knowledge of marie slogan definitely there have been a couple of people who have taken a pretty provocative ver- extreme point of view on this and is ibm. Has this famous quote. Yes i believe Frederick djelic said every time i fire a linguist the performance of the speech recognizer goes up so i imagine that was a deliberately provocative statement to make in your experience. How have these communities actually overlapped in the community or p. community specifically we want to model language and that's basically what you also want to do linguistics. You want to model language and you want to understand language. You may not want to light produce than which so much linguists rather observe whereas from nlp perspective you might as well to produce but also understand that right. So i think as linguist. You have certain intuitions about language with everyone might have. That seem very obvious to you as linguists that other people might not find so obvious such as negation can be a hard province so for me seems very obvious because this is a trend See gwyn stakes but like from computer science perspective. Never thought about this. You might wonder like why does my mom before well these types of includes or questions or whatever you might not realize that it was about negation or something. That is yet wasn't really that long ago when people still seriously considered that we could solve negation with just a couple of handcrafted rules Exactly like there's more to that right. I think in order to understand what would work well or licensing doesn't work well yet. List acknowledged really comes in handy. Will your paper the caught. My attention is titled what makes a good summary reconsidering the focus of automatic. Summer ization now automatic. Summer is kind of interesting that by hearing it. Even if you've never heard of this fuel before. You kind of intuitively know what it's all about yet. There's still some open questions practically speaking you know. What does it mean to do some reservation. Could you perhaps give us a survey or overview of the various techniques is a great question. Maybe not so clear which is one of the reasons why we started to write this paper. But that said i can give an overview first of what is often perceived as the way to do it in the community. so i'm talking about texts. Summarize -ation right because Of video summer ization for example with for decoration. You often do. thank you. Take any input documents. Texts article for example news article or a bunch of news articles media articles. And you want to kind of get the gist out of this input and right leg few sentence summary about it. That is the majority of work that is done now. How is this done with anything. We've seen a little progress. They're so it started off with a unsupervised Graph based model such as text. Frank relax wrangler. Basically people make a graph of the input documents and then kind of see. What are the most important sentences Extract those now with the rise of neuro models. We see that there is much To sequence approaches. That people used first night with our anez. We see transformers. And bird and bird dyke auto spoken up in a community. And then you also asked about the evaluation. So how often do it is served few forms of evaluation so you have flake the firm and often people use a roche with basically check for lexical. So have your label. Summary like the one you know. It should be any kind of check out. Many words are in common with summary. I produced there. How many acronyms to make it more precise and then there's also some new metrics such as like bird scores in one that doesn't measure lexical similarity with router semantics clarity right because in this lexical similarity approach. If you have a word is kind of the same word as in the summary. That was the label. But it's not the same word out and you don't want that so you run our to measure semantic similarity so that's another type of scoring functions people use and then another way is with human evaluation though you would ask. People questions like which of these summaries is more fluent or which one more informative or which one has the best coverage these questions

It's Ole Gone Wrong: Manchester United lose to Sheffield United

"United losing at home missing the chance to go top of the table defeated by bottom of the table. Sheffield united registering. Just second win of the season craig. I wanted to this happen. Possession but but really never trouble chef united gold out many times. Keep with enough to make that. Many saves chef united defended brilliantly. I mean phil. Jackie ohka failty. I think as robot the years bedtime and recent games is gone back to the tried and trusted in midfield which was from flake and norwood. Those guys have been up to save for parts of the season and that was the fulcrum of of their team last year. And in fact. I said i go back to basics here. This was the chef united. We saw last year scrapping and fighting and defend in trying to feed off scraps the other side and united was sloppy. I mean you look at the second goal it was. I think was go on ahead. So wasn't wasn't buck. I thank you boys was bought. Another joke guzman is so much time in the bulks on two occasions was bar and it was on the players within five yards new-look to and there were sloppy so when nine days doesn't have a sparkling game or russia doesn't have a sparkling game. This united say just lacks the guy that we saw from manchester city yesterday. How do you explain that. Defending the second goal. Steve is really weird. Well you just think in some ways when you play against a team league sheffield united. Who bottom of the league. You've pegged them back and you kind of you kind of think it's just going to happen. You're just going to go on and get the one up and so you drop certainly level of intensity because as far as quality it wasn't really there for united but the intensity was there to get equalizer and i think once they did that just a little drop. And that's what happens you know. Nobody takes the initiative. Nobody you know certainly usually when somebody has the ball at the feet in the box. You'd expect to not just one but two defenders could be gone in either thrown overboard in the line or just making a good solid challenge of get close enough. That didn't happen and that to me is just took a little bit easier after the equalizer thinking the all that to do is just see to score and we see today. Why manchester united win. The title. Worldwide tipped to win the league but craig was talking about. They had fantastic possession but mashes united. Can't handle possession and that's the probably you go. From beating liverpool liverpool keane had initiative. They went up and then scored. But i will also a respect scheffler united for their performance. I mean you could say. They deserve the window game because in the second half would it should be a pressure from manchester united at putting cavan on. There should make all kinds of efforts to get at least equalize. It didn't happen. I can't remember the chef. United goalkeeper had to make any big saves any big interceptions. Sometimes it came for crosses. So i think that that was mentioned uniting loosing on dreadful day of manchester united in the like marcial his buddy which is not even european europa league. Ins- it's down in the go. We don't championship. I can't believe how sometimes goes along on the pitch

The Biden administration is inheriting working COVID-19 hospital data

The Biden administration is inheriting working COVID-19 hospital data

"The biden administration is inheriting at least one thing around covid nineteen. That's working hospital data from american public media. This is marketplace tech. Molly would on the first full day of his administration. President biden signed an executive order designed to ensure a data driven response to covid nineteen and future public health threats. Now the administration already faces a big choice around cova data in july. The trump administration directed hospitals to stop sending data to the centers for disease control. And instead send it to the department of health and human services and hhs asked the data analysis company pollen tear to harmonize this whole massive information at first hot mess but by the fall the system was really working and now is tracking relations at least really really well. Alexis matter goal runs the kobe tracking project at the atlantic. He says the biden administration should try to ignore the messy politics in favor of the good data. You know part of it is. Cdc is seen as less political organization versus hhs in which you know it's seen as more a part of the administration did not have standing apart. You know one of the things. I really learned this reporting is that description is not totally accurate. In all cases you know the people who built this new hospital data system. They're all career civil servants. And so it really takes getting pretty deep inside these agencies to really understand the dynamics within these very complex organizations so what choices does the biden administration face around this data collection right. They could try to push the data collection for hospitalizations back into cdc into this sort of less flexible and older system or they could keep it inside. Hhs and to one of the things that i've been really worried about. Is that sort of to do this. Sort of abstract good of having the data collection be you know in the place where it belongs that you actually take away the system that working really well right now and that's incredibly transparent for the public. Do you have any sense from the one week by administration has existed of which way they might go. You know. I think the real thing is that the vaccine data is on right you saw. Cdc director will lemke saying you know she wasn't sure about the vaccine data right now and i just got to say i mean that was a system that was designed and built inside the cdc. I mean this is arguably the first major pandemic to exist in the big data age right like it. Sounds like you're saying there's just a skill set there that might not have been developed. Yeah it's not. As if the cdc doesn't collect of course cdc collects tons of data bud for different purposes. It's one thing to need rough and ready data to make decisions today. It's another thing to collect data for research projects over time in which you really want like precise answers but you have a lot of time to develop. Those data sets the questions. Do you ask the process that you build in the pandemic response. I would say by primary criticism of the cdc on a bunch of different levels is they've just moved too slowly. It hasn't seemed enough flake crisis. I mean the early example of that for me was in the very early days when the cdc had put up there cova tracking apparatus. They just didn't update it on the weekends. At a time when cases were like doubling like they stop updating on friday. They'd updated on monday. And there'd be twice as many cases as when they stopped you know. And i just thought to myself like guys. Everyone is working the weekend right now. Like we need to know what happening. The public needs to understand what's happening. You can't just take the weekend off. And i'm happy to say that the vaccine tracking the cdc is doing. They're updating it over the weekend you know. It's like right so so maybe this is a good. Maybe this is a good sign. You know that the administration cdc maybe as reinvigorated and has some renewed sense of purpose and are treating this like the crisis that it really is. Talk to me a little bit about palin tear and its role in this data collection because pailin tier is a name that inspires some dread either in the book or with respect to privacy and transparency. Like what do we know about. Its role in this data collection and how much transparency there is in in what they can. Use this data for to pailin here. It was co founded by peter thiel Who i think for a lot of democrats become sort of a republican supervillain and peter thiel and pailin tier have a lot of government contracts. People are rightfully worried about the extent of their reach into the federal government. But here's the thing people used the fact that. Hhs is data system which is called. Hhs protect was built by pollen tear as a reason to move data out of hhs. The problem is that. Hhs protect actually grew out of a cdc system also built by pailin tier also nih. They also use talent here so we have a system in which pailin tier is pretty thoroughly threaded throughout our public health surveillance infrastructure. Which in my mind. The way that i would set it up if i were doing this. Probably not on the other hand. It's not really an issue of hhs versus cdc. They both used talent here. Right pal to your says that they don't use that data that's that's flowing into system. They built for anything else that they basically just built the database in their hands are off it for what it's worth. Do you think we have that in writing somewhere in federal contract that may over tax.

"Those two moments are moments in the show that really blow the whole Operation Wide Open. You know. It's not about the animals. It's not about the animals. It's about the money that the animals are provide access to and the personal gain the currency right the courage that these people have by being in proximity to them and I also feel like it just makes me call bs on everything about Joe Exotic tremendous with you because I don't know how you're in possession of primates and not know how intelligent they are how sensitive they are how social they are. There's also the fact that Joe seems so blinded by his narcissism that the needs of people around him frequently just he doesn't notice what people need. There's this Oh my God gut wrenching scene in which one of Joe's employees has been attacked by tiger and they're doing tree again footage for their doing triage in front of the cage and Joe Rushes into the gift shop makes the announcement everybody there. I don't know why you know but the first thing he says is I am never gonNA financially recover from this and it's just I mean. Really Joe that's your first response. Not Is he okay. Is he going to be okay? What's the status? I mean that might have happened that we didn't see it on screen. I mean Joe is really just worried about this. Financial prospects that incident happens. I believe in the second episode and it's possible to see that happening. Just be mad at the practices of the Gw Zoo but in some ways. I feel like those like any anger that have about. This show is a proxy or maybe a stand in our replacement for some other real things that have been happening. That don't involve virus right. Yeah I mean this sort of goes back to what we were saying before. About like the there is a kind of luxury of this show And you know they're actual people in cages right now and I'd be very interested to see a filmmaker tried to get away with something like undocumented labor k. right or like with ice exotic. Oh my God. What about the package? King starring Jeff Bezos like. What's going on with Amazon right now? All this two day delivery and workers being pushed beyond their limits and not having protective gear. I mean that is a show that we need to really dive into so we can be implicated in this. 'cause with the tiger king like you and I are zero. Now you and I aren't holding baby cubs like our hands are cleaning but I think it would be much more interesting to to think about what this show could look like if we did have to engage with our relationship to unsavory labor practices but when you substitute the Tigers for people it makes it easier to watch it some ways. I know but at the end of the day the Tigers do serve this other allegorical purpose freight this entire enterprise. Just sort of struck me is not terribly dissimilar from human enslavement. I agree that was the first thing I thought about when I watched that baby tiger being yanked away from its mother with the cord still attached essentially. I was thinking exact same thing but it isn't so much that the animals are proxies for enslavement. It's more like the hunger for ownership is really the story that's a heart of this story overlaps with the with the heart of how enslavement worked. Jo's obsession with Carol. Ray It just reminds me of all of those southern plantation owners and enslavers who just couldn't believe the nerve of northerners in the in the run up to the civil war. There was this sense among certain plantation owners. That the north really had some nerve casting aspersions on this practice when you're just as guilty of benefiting from this practice you know we make an y'all take so you need to you need to get your story straight and I feel like Joe's obsession with Carol is so much in line with that. You were guilty of every single thing that you're accusing me of doing. Except you somehow were able to get away with how is that? That's absurd your criminal to. She's got tens of thousands of people out there brainwash. The we're busy animals. I just called her plane hypocrite. In Carol's logic is I treat them better? What really sets apart and can't rescue from zoo is that we are fixing the problem. They are creating the problem but the reason that we have cats in cages to provide them a safe place to live until they die. Her corollary would be like you know we. In the north have freed blacks and move. We hire them for work. We pay them. It's not much. But we pay them without acknowledging that there's still complicit in the same systematic disenfranchisement and that is the thing that kind of brings me back to this idea that this is an only in America rate Property ownership ownership of other creatures the refusal to acknowledge that. There's there might have to be a limit to how much you can have in land and what you can do on that land because it's yours. It just feels like the show could call itself American tiger and nobody would about an eyelash. Truly the most uncomfortable thing for me about the show is the realization that there's no version of freedom that exist as a standalone entity or way of life. It rests on another being's subjugation. It rests on profit. It rests on imprisonment and cruelty. And those are the things about this show that make it feel uniquely American and those are the things that we need to interrogate and then I think the show actually does help us interrogate. It's just deeply uncomfortable because it is still all framed as entertainment and I think there's just so many parallels in this framework that that were hard to digest but it's maybe too deep of a read on tiger king but maybe it's also not deep enough. You Know Westley we just thought we were going to get our trash TV fix but we ended up somewhere really different. And I feel like we're both permanently alternate feel like you and I will never look at zoo or bb Tiger Cup for that matter the same way again right one hundred percent..

"Jonah. Yes dear I need you to know something about me. Oh Okay it's not that bad but it's just I just remembered it while we were talking about this when I was a kid I had a bunch of like all kids like lots of kids who are lucky enough to have a bedroom had posters on my wall of things that appeal to me and Had a picture of et I had a picture of Emmanuel Lewis. Oh interesting I had it my obligatory Michael Jackson poster. You know the the magic was working out in. What can I say all day at a nineteen eighty three Philadelphia Seventy sixers? Little Insert thing that the Philadelphia Daily News gave everybody after they won the championship very cute. I also had this giant poster of Gunther Gable Williams. Does that name mean anything to you? Now Gunther Gable. Williams was some kind of ringling brothers Lion Tamer. Big Cats Person And the picture that I kept on my bedroom wall from the time I was maybe seven or eight years old until I was a teenager was of him. I don't think he had any shirt on and around his neck with tiger. And I I gotTA assume that part of the appeal of that image was that it was erotic. Oh Yeah and there was something about him in those animals in the control that I young me would have assumed that he had over them. Power is sexy. Well I mean there's also something about the circus I think I mean there's something about the circus for me. Were like the thing with the animals which just seeing these live animals in person. It just really spoke to me you know. I think from a very young age. We are socialized to find that appealing and I think humans in general are obsessed with controlling the natural world. They're obsessed with asserting themselves in relationship to it and you can see it as a way to understand yourself and your purpose and your place in the order of things through dominance and control and reorientation of this creatures. Yeah I mean there's a there's a moment in the show where the guy who does all joe exotics videos this guy name Rick. Kirkum says that. There's something really addictive about the cats. I felt when I got to hold tiger in my hands when I got the cage with six eight months old tigers lines. Something Mary a big me about the feeling of power being around the annual most people are not immune to that power. And there's a whole thing about people posing with tigers in their tinder profiles. It is a thing you know. I think for most people when you're presented with the option to hold a baby tiger. You're GONNA say yes. I have to say like I've never been in that position but I'm having a hard time prior to seeing tiger king. I'm having a really hard time imagining myself. Saying now I think I would have been like. GimMe Baby Tony. Take my picture. How can you say now and both Joe and Carol make money off of that attraction people line up to pet them? We've been seeing a little bit about how these tiger cubs are being used for entertainment. How they're being used for profit. But we really haven't been forced to confront the the real brutality of what that means for these animals. You know one of the most horrific parts of the show for me and admittedly I definitely could not fully watch it. There is a scene in the show when Joe was filming and watching a tiger giving birth right and it's worth noting like we're deep deep down the rabbit hole at this point we've been we've been invested in the show for hours on so in this scene you know. They're watching tiger giving birth. But then as the Tigers giving birth joe is taking a tool and thrusting it into the cage to pool. The baby tiger away from the mother at the moment of birth and it was so it touches. Something inside me that was so painful so absolutely painful and it felt like a deep a deep maternal womb wound. You know and I'm not a parent so but I felt it. I felt it deepened. My solar plexus it was it was it was awful. We'll there's also that moment at the end where he's talking about the chimps that he'd kept in separate cages for like a decade at some point the chimps wind up in the same enclosure and he has a moment of actual regret intake as they were in a big yellow hugging on each other deprive them of that for ten years yes.

"You show me the show about some black zookeeper with the Flamingo. Farm fighting with so with some black women and incompetent. It's about waters versus. Yeah it just doesn't happen. Why people are the only ones who get to have fun while committing crimes. They're the only ones to document it. Make a reality show out of it and we can't get enough. We love it in the three ring. Circus Act that is JOE EXOTIC. One of the rings crime like He. It's part of the show. It is part of the spectacle it is part of the wild ride. And that is a uniquely white thing. So in addition murder-for-hire homeboys out here falsifying all kinds of records around either loans wildlife transaction. He's committing campaign fraud but you can talk about all the crimes this man is perpetuating without even getting all the abuses and violations of endanger species acts and all the other multiple things that he's doing against the animals like it's just I mean. People are fascinated with white criminality in a way that it stands out in stark contrast to what the way that this country thinks about black people who even sneeze at a crosswalk let alone cross a sideways. Well normally would you see black criminals? They come in one flavor and that is drug dealer a lot of those stories. And let's just think specifically about the wire but even a show like snowfall which is on fx. You rarely get the shows to bring these men and women to life. I mean so the difference I guess is that black people are drug dealers trapped in a plot rate and with Wayne Criminals. In general. It's more about like who the criminal is like you get to know them. It's a character study before. It's procedural rate smoltz. It's also humanizing. They get to be people like Walter. White is a schoolteacher within operable lung cancer. Who Winds up at his lowest moment turning into the greatest drug lord in the history of America and you know Tony. Soprano another agency. I mean we accept the idea that as part of our entertainment that there's a lot of rope for white criminals in entertainment to hang themselves if they even get hung rate. But the idea that like when you do get black versions of this in the that really good movie about the the DC shooter the DC sniper loop Capris or you get something like OJ made in America or you know. I mentioned the wire but none of these. None of those works is a comedy and Tiger King is essentially like it can join a long list of funny flake. Front relief facing comedies about white criminal. a show like Fargo is a perfect example of. There's this whole zone of funny white criminals where you're basically watching a movie full of nincompoops trying to commit crimes and the movie is laughing at them too. But the only comparable thing I can think of. It's even remotely in that universe when it comes to black. People in criminals is a show like empire which is about a crime family that winds up running a huge record label. And it's not afraid to make terrible people interesting. It's tough right like you would never. I don't WanNa see it. Also it's worth noting but they would never be even a two part series about what Michael Vick was up to his origin story. And whatever happened on the other side of that with his dog fighting ring you know and I think that's the part that just sours all this for me which is just it's frustrating to think about how we laugh at someone like Joe Exotic and then how we demonize someone like Michael Vick but it's just more about the way the system is set up to allow all of this leeway four person leg Joe Exotic to enjoy himself. Is it worth making the point that would imprison too by the way I mean? I don't think they're any white people who are watching this show feeling like embarrassed on behalf of an entire genre of people right but when Michael Vick was was in the news and being prosecuted I mean it was it. Felt like if you were a black person and you were somehow also responsible for the crimes committed by Michael Vick which is also a distillation of how we think about race in this country. We know we actually do have a black tiger king. It's Michael Jackson Neverland. It wasn't an official public zoo but there wasn't zoo. Yeah and you know it was predicated upon this fantasy of. I don't know childhood for Michael Jackson Allow Delight. Yeah I mean. It was essentially part of the lower for kids and adults and their parents. Yeah it was there. Were these animals there. And you got this tandem of the biggest music star in the world and these adorable animals. You could like maybe pet. I don't know if you remember this. But the but the gate fold for the thriller. Lp was Michael Jackson sprawled on his side with a tiger cub on his knee. Right I do remember that. My sister had a pinned up on her wall. It is imprinted into my childhood brain for sure. Michael Jackson is not joe exotic but with Tiger King. The only reason to bring it up at all is just to say that when it comes to popular culture black criminal is black criminal. I and if that person is lucky then maybe maybe he gets to be a character second. But that's what makes this show. So insidious Wesley like. We shouldn't be sitting here trying to find some compassion from Michael Jackson for OJ. Simpson for Michael Vick. Like the show is putting us into a position where we'd feel defensive over people who've done horrible things why why and what we're really talking about is behaviors that are deemed acceptable by society. What behaviors are worthy of prosecution? And what becomes a sideshow attraction? Right when you've really watched the show and you parse out Joe's actions like I cannot stop thinking about a young man named Travis Maldonado who you meet on the show and he becomes Joe's next love and trust and eventually his husband. Although I don't know how legal these marriages were but the way they introduced this young man who's nineteen by the way nineteen Joe's fifty one A. Rod God news six foot. Six Dark complected gentlemen with the most God awful hands. You've ever seen the nealon. Joe Immediately as wild stroke this so we're taking the trash trailer down. When they John's driving the truck me Joe and Travis are in the back of the trailer and Joe Says Straight on and he goes straight and I said you watch porn. Yeah I said. What do you enjoy the Gallic win-win doing her early enjoy watching the guy with the big win? Doing and he said well obviously one watched the guy with the big one. I simply ain't that straight edge. Travis seems to be very unhappy and deeply miserable. This is someone who was under the spell of addiction. This is somebody who apparently does not have a lot of economic resources. This is someone who isn't a lot of trouble as a young person who gets totally swept into Joe Exotics. Big NARCISSISTIC EGOTISTIC plan. And the show scores this. I guess seduction if you WANNA call it that with romantic music as if it's a love story but it's it's really a dark tragedy and Travis is not the only young person who comes under Joe's manipulation and appears to be held there by means beyond their control. It doesn't seem to be able to leave. I mean not to keep doing this but sounds like our Kelly bill cosby. I'm I'm I'm I'm so mad at you. Bring that up. I can't I can't sorry but I'm just saying that like just in terms of what we do in don't permit to be entertainment. A- show surviving R Kelly that Docu series around lifetime. Last year the stakes were too high for it to be anything other than a legal document right that has the power to at least get R to be get near courtroom and the R Kelly series didn't have the luxury of entertaining you. Do you know what I mean Yeah Yeah you know it. These issues were to urgent. Dimap Hugh or wink and the point of surviving R. Kelly was to actually put some bars around this man and and in actually try to prosecute him. It was a public service. The series was an act relic service. Yeah right and this other show tiger king gets to be free. Has the luxury of letting joe kind of tell his own story in some ways? I mean he obviously doesn't have all the controls. These people do the filmmakers. Do and they definitely have a point of view. But they're so generous. In how much of these people get to be people before they become sort of criminal justice items? But if you were GonNa make a documentary by R Kelly. You better be using it. As a tool of social justice and criminal justice there other things about tiger king with respect to power that are worth talking about and I don't know I think maybe we should try to talk about those two. I'm here for Babes. Let's take a quick break and when we come back we will get into it.

"A few weeks ago. All my social feeds were completely colonized by these memes of a really sunburn looking white guy with a situation ship on top of his head like I still don't understand what is going on with his hair but bleach blond hair okay. Shaved dark on the sides piercings tattoos and a Faira. L- look in his eyes and in an animal cage or next tiger and every third person in my life. Have you seen Tiger King? Are you watching Tiger again? I was like I don't need more things to keep me awake at night. I was assured over and over again. No it's not stressful. It's very it's very absorbing and they were right about that. I mean I put this show on and I did not think about anything else. I was just not in America in two thousand twenty anymore. Tiger king murder mayhem and madness. This documentary that runs in seven parts on Netflix. Its popularity makes all the sense in the world. It's got disappearances. There was an attempted murder for hire accusations of actual murder lawsuits. Arson guns explosions addiction. Sex Chidi o'malley emory my sex go on and lots of big dangerous animals. My Name's Joe Exotic and this is thunder and lightning. The only difference between my pet. Your pet is mine. Have Three ads teeth and they way four hundred. Does it feel good to stand on stage with five hundred pound tires and everybody envy you absolutely? Okay I would be the biggest liar if I said no also also also it is true. Crime story with a lot of cats so its popularity is just laid during these. Times is a no-brainer. So let's back up for a second and talk about who the tiger king actually is. He is. He's got a lot of Tigers. He's got a lot of names. His wikipedia entry name would be Joseph Allen Schraivogel Maldonado passage mile and his nom. Zoo is Joe Exotic when the DOCU series starts. He's the owner and operator of the GW zoo which is in the middle of Oklahoma in a place called Winnie would and their scores of blind tigers but also alligators and bears and wolves and all kinds of monkeys for people willing to pay money to come see these animals. They can plunked down some go in and see them all see all like at some point he had one hundred eighty seven cats. And you could go in and see. Joe's animals get at the Gel to welcome you to the grade one. What Exotic Animal Park? I gotta get closer to the Tigers and lions here the world as a matter of fact so plunged almost promise you some of you will be urinated on if that happens. Way Of t-shirts at the gift shop says I got beat them by tiger. He is physically a character. He is personality wise. One of the most interesting people I've ever watched a movie or television show wins the last time you saw someone living at the intersection of all of these identities on television before he's a proudly proclaimed a gun toting gay poly-amorous Redneck etc etc. Like he's just. It's hard to believe that people like him exist and so for me. That's the first thing that drew me. It was like who is this guy. And why the hell does the these cats match. Poking good-looking loved the Party and have fun. Hello let's go blow some bullshit up anybody. Joe's nemesis is a self-styled animal rights activists who is in Florida and her name is Carol Baskin. How they go from being so sweet to just wanting to tear your face off and they can do it like that and it's like Oh that's amazing to have that kind of range in that speed. Now when you meet Carol she also looks like someone who could be famous or wants to be famous so much going on with her. She has a so cow. Beechy vibes huge. Is She runs an animal. Sanctuary called big cat rescue and she would like all of us the things. She's an animal rights activists so from her perspective. Joe is a bad guy. He mistreats his animals. He's not taking care of them. She wants to shut him down. People like Joe Exotic. What they are doing is breeding cats for life. Engages Tiger needs four hundred square miles of territory in the wild. So there's no cage that's going to be sufficient. And yet she herself also trots out these animals for display people pay to come visit her refuge and look at the cats as well. I mean it's just it's you know by any other name tomato tomato open to the public doing bone tours not to daters kid tres. Kid Cams weddings naming. If you're taking photos and stuff to be great if you use the Hashtag big cat rescue so go ahead and open the season cats. It's moneymaker for them. Tickets sold out really fast. And so we're so happy to see you all you guys. If you not sucking each bullet nine hit that point. What's a handwriting? But essentially this dynamic between the two of them gets whipped up into a frenzy and the culminating question of the show is whether or not joe eventually did what he said he's GonNa do throughout the whole show and hire someone to kill her. At the more time you spend with Carol the more you start to understand there is something else. Happening below all those layers. She is a master chess player and she is playing the game to win. It was like the Hatfield McCoy. Each Other you've been listening. I got I got. It's just a. It's a crazy little comedy between exotic animal owners for both characters. The animals are the beginning of a turning point in both their lives. They completely transform them into entirely people. They start to revolve all of their lives. All of their businesses all of their motivation around big cats age of thirteen. I knew I was gay and I had a bad time struggling with it. When my father found out he made me shake his hand from my mom and promised onto come to shoot so. I had a real issue dealing with that and one night. I drove my car off a bridge too. I broke my back. I am spent five years embraces. I went to Florida to do my therapy hand. My neighbor was the manager of Lang countries far and he brought home belives. Maybe monkeys and stuff at night to battlefield. And that's where my attraction to exotic animals really started at a I know that they have a heart and soul and mind. I've learned from them and they do. Their people may be you royds. Yeah I mean they started out loving these animals right they they legitimately. I don't disbelieve the origin stories of all the participants who get an origin story in this series. I've never been a person that had friends and so my friends were to imaginary white cats. I've always had cats in my life and I've always felt a certain affinity toward them. Carol is leaning into her into her thing and she's got like cat print luggage cat print close joe he's got a gift shop at the GW Zoom and in the gift shop. They're selling Joe Exotic. Honey they're still enjoy exotic lube joe exotic underwear and so you get this sense that like the animals okay. They might love the animals. This might have gone from a place of pure animal.

I spoke to former Senator Jeff Flake as the impeachment news in Washington was boiling over the director of National Intelligence had just testified in Congress and earlier that morning the whistle blowers complaint had been released to the public so I have to tell you before this week I had a whole other set of questions for you understood but here we are Dr and so I feel like we have to start with impeachment knowing what we know today and frankly. I'm not sure everything we know today. It's coming out so quickly. Are you. In favor of the impeachment process moving forward. I've been on record for the longest time to step back. I'm not not a fan of the president. You're not going to say yes or no. She's good I would. I don't want to see the president impeached aged. I really don't because I don't want to get in a cycle of disqualifying public officials rather than beating at the polls. I've lived in countries where they do that whether they get in that cycle and it's tough to get out we may have already entered it so. I hope there's not but I I understand end and can appreciate what's facing the house right now saying we need to fill our constitutional duty and obviously not all the information in his in but what is in is extremely troubling and I can't imagine and I still look at some of my colleagues folks who are passing it off as nothing and say what are you looking at. What would you do if the previous president had done this so this is extremely serious. They need to take their job seriously. There's a lot more information. That will come out. I think in the coming days and I hope it doesn't go there. I really do you because I think that we don't WanNa get in that cycle. Okay well. Let me let me a pin you down here because impeachment inquiry because it seemed to me the second that Nancy Pelosi said those words out loud all of a sudden. It was like you pushed a little bit and all of a sudden documents are coming out and transcripts are coming out. You know we've been asking for those things in the court for a long long time but well a I mean there's nothing in the constitution that defines what an inquiry is as opposed to due period or or whatever else so that's just kind of manufactured nextstep but whatever gets more information out in and finally really pushes the White House to respond because they aren't responding. They haven't responded to subpoenas. I think it's going to be even more difficult to because the whistleblowers identifying individuals in the White House who the whistle blower ledges helped try to cover this up and so we're are likely going to face some real confrontation here going forward. It's hold onto your hats. It's going to be a turbulent ride. I think in the next couple of months down for Yes for inquiry. I didn't say that there is no way to look at that transcript partial transcript I mean it's not a full transcript and not say oh my goodness what is this and and even long before this you'd say with the Mullahs report. It may not say that the president should be impeached but it certainly says he shouldn't be reelected and that's what I wanted my colleagues to realize well so you have friends in Washington. All the attention now is on your former colleagues in the Senate because they would be the jury if there was an improvement the preceding so when you call your friends in DC I mean what are they saying about these new allegations are somebody mentioned yesterday yesterday that if there were a private vote that there'd be thirty. Republican votes. That's not true there'd be at least thirty five talk are maybe maybe more private vote but that's not possible and so they have to come out and many of them are up for reelection in tough seats and I know without feeling and I hope that even if my colleagues aren't willing to devote for impeachment I think this is not worth it and look at the long-term long term good of the Republican Party because that's what I think we ought to be concerned about. We've given ourselves for whatever reason to political parties in this country and we need to sane functioning parties to make this work and I think we're kind of moving away from that. So what was your question again now. Did you ever think about a third party like you. Don't have to stand there. All all the president said stuff. You have a voice third party. I don't think we're there were third parties. He's GonNa come about anytime soon but I do think particularly if the president were to win a second term if the president is defeated next year I think than Joe Biden has talked about and I've talked about for a long time this. This can be viewed as an aberration. You know our sojourn into unfamiliar territory. We'd get right back and say we that wasn't good if he is elected again reelected that becomes much more difficult but I think the manifestation of it is more likely to be that in certain states. It's probably like Arizona. You're like to see more independent candidates not aligning with a third party but in just about every state now you have a good chunk of the electorate in Arizona. It's about a third third third. Republican Democrat independent independence don't vote.

"Have leaders in the conservative movement, essentially say and this goes back to your Jeff flake question. We're not willing to put up with anything to get our judges. We're not willing to put up with all things because but Gorsuch, what can they really do though? I mean, I get it that they have a voice, but how can they actually have an impact? I think that we are very quick to say, it's all just words words, words words, right words, mean nothing and blood Jeff flake like you in your mouth. But I think that it's really important that one of the things that the George Conway team are doing are. They are making this argument this like sane lucid argument about why checks and balances matter and why the rule of law matters. And why this Nick Sonian view that if the president takes your press credentials away, it's never unconstitutional. That's not nothing. That's not just words. So I feel like you're making this argument. Which is really interesting, which is basically to have these folks standing up, it changes the environment where it's like right now, we're sort of Trump is setting the environment. We're in his jungle that he's created. And they're saying no actually were in this room over here. We all need to see it. Clearly there sort of turning the lights on for us, which is great. But is sort of wonder. This squidgy face when his face. It's just my face. Like are we all in the same environment? Like, they're making these arguments. But are they making the arguments to the right people like we just had this election, right? Where it was really clear that the bulk of Americans are rejecting Trump ISM. But there are these geographic locations where that's not happening. And I don't know if the people in those geographic locations are listening to George Conway are listening to Jeff flake, even and Jeff lakes about to be out of there. This is a great question. And I think it raises something that's more than an ember for me, and that is the courts in the rule of law. So I think a lot of folks when you look at the exit polling when they rejected Trump and Trump is a lot of it is about this in a phobia, the misogyny and Brett Kevin on whatever that's come to represent a lot of it. Is that people just think there needs to be a check they think there needs to be checking, they don't maybe can't parse. You know, what that looks like? But these certainly I think overwhelmingly said. We need some entity that is going to rein him in. And this goes to why like I love the law, and it's more than just an ember for me, I mean, we are looking at a Trump judge who was appointed in twenty seventeen who just reinstated. Jim Costa's press credential just today just today before we sat into the studio, and you can say like, oh, blah, blah. Maybe it doesn't mean anything, you know, it's a due process argument. It's gonna come back, but it's not nothing. It's not nothing that the White House. Didn't have the temerity to go into that court and make the Sarah Sanders. He put his hands on her argument. It matters that they abandoned that argument and win the judge press them on it. They were like, oh, it's not in our pleadings that he put his hands on the girl because. Head been. But I think that for right now, let's have this conversation about whether it matters that we have an independent probe. And if if George Conway wants to be in the trenches with us, I will welcome him with open wick, bringing the hope. Thank you. Thank you for having me. Ooh.

"Next feedback all one word that is where we are collecting all of your words of wisdom about the show. What you loved what you loved a little less. We need your ideas. So get in touch and thanks. All right. So Dolly lipoic. She is watching Jeff flake. And she admits it's not the first time flake is given liberals hope that he's gonna stand up to the Trump administration. Remember, the Cavanaugh confirmation process. So I asked Dalia how do we know flakes? Latest move is real well, you know, he gave his speech. He said, I'm not gonna let a single judge threw he found Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell's that's the spot. Right. That's the thing. If you wanna hurt not clearing tens of judges who are either stuck in committee or stuck before the full Senate that hurts. And so I think in a sense he has gone from sort of monitoring. Discursive like it shouldn't be like this to. I'm a lame duck. Senator I've got two months left to affect you. Wait, something a month left. Here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to block all the judges. And I realize I like, I'm like, Patty Hearst syndrome like. But I think if this were just words after he said, what he said McConnell would have done a deal some kind of deal to mollify him, which is happened before, you know. Can we take second? Explain why the judges are so important because this administration has put through a lot of judges, right? Yeah. No. I mean, it's it's extraordinary. The the number of NPR had this Carrie Johnson had a piece yesterday that was just mind boggling in terms of lifetime appointments on the appeals court twenty nine judges fifty three district court judges and two supreme court justices. Obama couldn't get judges threw it all in his last year. He was almost completely stymied the reason it's important. I mean, there's sort of obvious reason it's important, which is that these are article three judges they serve for life. The NPR report really broke down. How many of them are white men as compared to you know, Obama who had done so much in Clinton who had done so much and Bush, by the way who had. Really made efforts to have a bench that looked like America. And they're young right young. They're extremely conservative. I mean, I can't say it strongly enough. These are not Bush judges. These are judges who many of whom have no judicial experience, many of whom have very little litigation experience. Some of them have just been bloggers for far right conservative enterprises. And they're all getting you know, there are mechanisms in the Senate even pre filibuster. You know, there was a blue slip this arcane way that home state senators could block judges they didn't like all of those are gone every check is gone. And so these judges get stacked in hearings will you to get to three appeals court. Judges five district. Never has it happened that way they've done away with the ABA use to rate them. That's gone. So every rubber-stamp while they control. Yep. To quality control gone to just to your question. The reason it matters is. Because this is the fulfillment of a decades long pledge that Republicans and the conservative legal movement had to overtake the federal courts. Right, right. But here's. You have so much hope for flake. No, I have very little hope for. But it's a burning ember that you're like fanning of a members, but I feel like he's like a really good example of the issue here. He likes these judges as much as the next guy. Right. Like he would love to get these judges through they're going to make kind of decisions that he agrees with fundamentally as a real conservative. But he started drying this line. And what happens next really depends on where these very fuzzy lines are for people, and that's why I look at Jeff flake. And I'm like is this really going to hold on? I guess we'll know in the next what week or two whether he's actually going to get in the way, and to be perfectly fair here here, I will squelch your ember or I will I will pour freezing water over your ember. It almost doesn't matter because in January when they're even more Republicans on the judiciary committee and more Republicans in the Senate. It's not gonna matter. So it is entirely. Possible that even if Jeff flake prevails for a few weeks, he will still in aggregate have lost because these judges are going to get on the bench..

"Earlier this week Republican Senator Jeff flake held a press conference. Thank you for being here. We've just ask for unanimous consent on the floor of the Senate to bring the special counsel independence integrity act to the floor this legislation that passage additionally committee on April twenty six he was trying to revive a Bill that the Senate I considered back in the spring. It would protect special counsel Robert Muller from political interference. So this is a legislation. That would have codified Justice department rules saying that you can only fire the special counsel for good cause dully with wick covers the courts for sleep. She was watching this moment closely. It was voted on in committee last April, and it's just been sort of mouldering on the shelves since then. But when the president fired is attorney general last week and replaced him with hardline loyalist, many Washington insiders started to worry about Muller's future. So here's flake saying. Being comes forward with Chris coons and says, dammit, no now, we're gonna vote on this. And Mitch McConnell's like, I don't think we needed. I trust Trump. He's not going to hire Muller. And this moment Dalia thinks of it as a kind of conservative gut check for some what happened to the Justice department last week crossed the line, others didn't think so. So what's interesting is the folks for whom it was a red line who have just negotiated that away. And then in tandem with that people like Senator Jeff flake who seemingly say, no actually this remains a red line. And in fact, the firing of sessions is not beyond a red line. It's a flashing red light. Like, this means, you know, Trump has Muller in his crosshairs. And so for me, what's interesting is that split. Here's Jeff flake, who you know, writes, this book conscience of a conservative who has been out on the hustings for two years saying all the right things and doing nothing. He's the one. I'm watching now arise today. The speak in defense of the special counsel of special counsel, Robert Muller. Dial almost doesn't want to say this. But she thinks Jeff flake is taking a stand because after that Muller Bill shutdown Senator flake stood on the floor of the Senate, and he made this threat, one further note on this unanimous consent request that has just failed today Senator coons, and I are prepared to make it again..

"Senators and flake. We invited you to this event about a month ago. Thank you so much for precipitating, a constitutional crisis to justify our conversation this morning for precipitating and of winning it. And we are here to discuss gravely serious questions and that is the future of the Senate as an institution, and that is the future of the supreme court as an institution and how as you so eloquently said, Senator flake to prevent the country from tearing itself apart at a time when the legitimacy of both of those institutions is under siege, I'm required though by my editor, Jeff, Goldberg Senator just ask them easy question just to start us off. So this is from Goldberg. The question is, what is the state of play today? And what would it take for the FBI investigation to reveal to get you to consider voting against up. Chris. No, no. It almost works. State of play today is the investigations ongoing. The interviewed, I four that we're named and have branched off from there my understanding and are interviewing additional individuals and as it should be, and I hope that they follow leads that come from those first interviews, the what the agreement that we struck, the compromise that we struck that we'd have something that was limited by time as Chris outlined it in the speech. Before we, we went outside to one week and then we would limit the scope, the scope being limited to to current credible allegations. We didn't want to throw something open for allegations to come out like the Rhode Island boat thing that was out and then retracted or or some of the more outlandish ones out there. And we checked with DOJ. They assured us that this was in within what the timeframe that they can do it. We both hope and have been pushing the White House to to make sure it's Folsom investigation, and it's not unduly limited, and I hope they're doing it to find fact. We have not seen any of the reporting yet. We were told that might come back or in real time. And we might have some decisions to make in terms of where they go. My hope is that they as a interview these individuals than immediately follow up on other leads at they might they might have. So we don't know exactly where it is in terms of what it will take. I. I just hope that we find fact, and I have an open mind just like I had in the hearings and we'll see what they come back with. Don't want to prejudge it. Thank you for that. Chris. Some Democrats have taken the position that regardless of what emerges from the investigation, the nominees temperamental conduct in the hearings is disqualifying could anything from the investigation make you favor of capital. What I think is important. Jeffrey about the moment we have here is that as we ground towards the end of Friday's committee deliberations they got sharper and hotter and more partisan and more personal to the point where I think Senator flake correctly perceived that the nine hour hearing the day before which had presented to compelling forceful testimonies to completely opposite sets of facts and conclusions was really having an impact in a lasting way on the credibility of the institution of the Senate. And if the nomination was forced forward with no more further investigation would have a lasting impact on the credibility of the court. You asked a direct question. I'll give you a direct answer. I had announced a conclusion in my view about judge Cavanaugh based on his jurisprudence before we got to this point and and that's. Is not an opinion that is shared by many Republican colleagues, and I understand that. But what I think Senator flake did that was exceptional and praiseworthy is to say, we have to come closer in terms of our understanding of facts. Even though Democrats Republicans will almost certainly continue to have very different opinions about judge Cav enough from a policy perspective, Jeff's are real conservative. He would like not to speak for you. But my strong impression is he'd really like a conservative Justice on the supreme court. I'm not. I really don't want someone with judge Kavanagh's views of presidential power or views of substantive due process or likely jurisprudence around privacy and around the most recent significant decisions by Justice Kennedy. So I'm not going to change my views on judge Kavanagh's nomination based on that. But I think..

"I hope you want two thousand dollars four winners already. So w I ascend Putin putting points on the board already because that's how we are. Okay. So here's here's where it stands, folks. After yesterday. When Brett Cavanaugh? Opened with his opening statement when he began his opening statement that that went on for about fifty minutes and after Brett Cavanaugh. Stored firm and fought wounded though, he was a righteous and glorious fight. And I would argue as well independent of what in a craven politician like like Jeff flake. Would would say or conclude? What he did was he paved a path for defense for men and Republicans and just good decent people to fight. Against the ritual defamation. The left has decided is their primary political tactic. That's what he did. I don't know if he intended to do that. But the the the righteousness the pure righteous dignity. Shown by judge Cavanaugh in his opening statement. And in his answers to the idiocy of having to define a teenage term for farting. We were talking about farting. Farting N quarters and f. And I couldn't believe the clowning that took place yesterday by supposedly these austere, vaunted members of the US Senate talking about farting farting, Sheldon Whitehouse spent considerable time on farting, and he actually continued his analysis of farting in the news today. But. Cavenaugh? By just standing and fighting a righteous fight on behalf of man himself, his family, but men and decent people in America yesterday, which inspired Lindsey Graham Lindsey Graham, how many of you have had some critical things to say about Lindsey Graham in the past inspiring, Lindsey Graham to get up and give one of the most memorable possibly historical speeches seized for us. The ability to fight back against defamation. That is what we've been experiencing you in me all by extension. It's defamation. It's a specific kind. It's a tactical defamation. It is a defamation that is used by tyrants to achieve their political ends without having to fight very much. It just requires a commitment to lodging. And to have Jeff flake either because he is just an attention seeking soloist jerk. Or because he is so swayed by the effects of ritual deformation that he's that he's become a properly trained seal to to to to throw your body in front of in on this path. It is just beginning to be paid by two courageous patriots for the rest of America to to wrestle back our nation from the clutches of madness is just almost too much to take. But that's where we are today. Jeff flake who's not even running for reelection through his body on the path paved by Cavanaugh and Graham. And more more paving, more bricks were laid in the road by people like Cornyn and Tillis and cruise. And there's Jeff flake, no.

"Kevin what about some of the other uh republican senate primaries percolating around the map i mean are we seeing kind of the same apart from arizona in tennessee are we seeing the same dynamics of where the and it certainly it was true in some of the special elections earlier this year if you if if there is one thing the republican base was not interested in it was candidate who speaking out against trump at that point in our are there any republican primary candidates out there who are kind of following jeff flake lead at this point no to be to be blood i mean what you're seeing is if you are an establishment candidate your sort of trying to blur the lines little bit at the very least you're not you know i mean jeff flake really stuck his head out wrote a whole book attack literate wrote a book literally wrote entire book checking the president but you know you're not even seen people saying like oh you know maybe trump should stop tweeting last and focus more on tax reform which is the kind of thing you can get sort of republican senators will still say stuff like that right you don't even see candidates saying that because it's all popular one thing a few republicans brought up to me in the case of arizona for instance martha mcsally was another person who said you know after the access hollywood tape said you know this was bad trump shouldn't have done that people worried trump would use that against her in another time she got caught on tape talking about how trump was causing political problems rows republicans and people are worried that just those comments which were pretty tame would get used against her in a primary and so i think there's just a lot of evidence indicating that any criticism of trump is going to be weaponized.

"Hi ryan hey how are you i'm well how are you good let's start by talking about senator flake who has served in congress since two thousand but this is only his first term a senator back when he was elected he was seen by both parties his as standardbearer of conservatism he recently published that book attacking trumpism essentially uh and all the forces that the party seems to be succumbing to now so he's a good way of looking at how the party got to the point where we are now where he couldn't win a republican primary he could win a republican primary and and as you point out he was considered really on the on the far right the air to barry goldwater conservatism and when he was a member of the house was part of a younger generation of bomb thrower so you sort of remarkable that he's ending his career in congress as the voice of of the establishment and more traditional conservatism and i i thought the really interesting thing about both his speech and then the interviews he did afterwards was how little it had to do with ideology what he would he basically said if he could win the primary unless he pandered to trump himself and he he pointed out that it wasn't so much that he has a difference of opinion with trump on immigration or or whatever issues they differ on but that republican voters see criticism of trump himself.
