Which as you it's a game about a bunch of animals stuck on an island up. Some of you may not original named the real house. Believe sorry they laugh to sued new york city already. The punchline about to land and the country has gone through a lot you know. I mean besides the corona virus. We've had political upheaval. I mean america's now even more trillions of dollars in debt. I mean no one in government watches housewives. And if they did they'd get fifty girlfriends and force them all to give america hundred bucks on your birthday. I mean we'd still be in debt but lady liberty would have a gucci bag to show for it. You know the on a serious note. The nation was very shocked a few weeks ago when an angry mob raided the capital. And all you gave them was a pizza. Jennifer eight in and we finally got a new president this week and the nation breathes a sigh of relief. Now look i know all of you have different political opinions and that's fine. My personal opinion is thank god that the orange thing left on my. Tv's ram be read mid no but you know the thing is i mean current events were one thing but so much actually happened in the world but it seemed like so much more happened on bravo. Yeah i mean house was getting fired. So many housewives got fired a record amount. I mean it was a slaughterhouse and it was not the organic kind either. there was a lot of botulism in that meet. Okay housewives caster transforming faster than derek kinsley space. Have you seen that thing. It looks like an elbow anyo on below deck mid hannah.

LaFleur defends FG decision: Felt like right move
"Jason there's a lot of people on social media that are talking about the way. Aaron rodgers handled the post game. Press her saying that he constantly throws head coaches or his team under the bus. What are your thoughts on. That is the case. That was not the sense. I got from his post. Game and matt lafleur clearly through His defensive coordinator. Mike patton under the bus for the touchdown right before halftime. He said we're in man coverage that's the wrong coverage to be in. I put that on the coaching staff. We can't make that mistake. I look. he's throwing an interception. I was crucial right He had the third down run. The key mentioned that he didn't take so. I don't think aaron rodgers played a perfect game by any stretch. But i do think that that's the problem with the packers is that he has to play perfect for them to win more often than not. I mean tom. Brady threw three interceptions. Packers didn't turn those into enough points. But they had the margin for error that the goat can throw three interceptions and they can still win. The game i. I do think that that might be part of rogers. Frustration is that he feels like he he. He does not have any margin for error in game like this. It's a great point. Three second-half interceptions to boot and tom. Brady's off to super bowl number. Ten and is jason said for the first time in about ten years rogers at an opportunity but again it's cut short have a great show today. I'm sure the callers are actually lined up right now. Thanks to anytime guys playing great stuff. They're really good

5 Steps to Jump Start Your Diet
"Your diet or what you tend to eat every day can play a major role in how you feel and how you handle the pressures of everyday life so to get you back on track with your nutrition. Our guest today is gonna share five steps to jumpstart your diet and of course our virtual guests today is none other than registered. Dietitian debbie james. Welcome back to the show. Debbie thank you again and what a wonderful time to think about something new in this new year absolutely yes gonna jump. Start those diets for everyone. Okay we had. We just made it through the holidays. So let's get back on track here Like i mentioned a lot of us got off track last year. Probably with our diets. So as we were kinda lamenting this fact. Debbie good idea to come up with some simple steps to right the ship get back on track and create some good eating habits. So you kind of came up with these five steps What's the first step to getting back to a healthy diet. Or you said good eating habits and so i actually put them together in the acronym habit h. A. b. i. T. so the age is for healthy diet. Define what eating healthy means to you. 'cause it's not the same for everybody. It could be smaller portions to be calorie controlled. It could be more plant-based maybe it's low fat to deal with your cholesterol. Maybe it's unprocessed so whatever healthy diet means to you or healthy eating means to you frame it like it out. What does that mean for each type of food group or eating situation or meal so that you're actually defining that healthy diet that h okay so once you define what eating healthy means to you. What would be the next up that you would suggest taking. So you're a your age. Abt your ace step would be ask yourself. What's in the way of you. Achieving that healthy diet so is it. Circumstances is the situation is a bad routine. You can't say the healthy diet is this. And i want to get there. You have to say what ask yourself what is in the way. What are my obstacles. So that i can address those. You know. it's interesting with the obstacle thing. it's kind of like when we write narratives like in the film television world. You're always trying to put obstacles in your characters way so that they have to overcome them which leads to some meaningful narrative arc changing their characters. So i suppose in this way you just need to you know kind of creative writer and discover in your own life. What are those obstacles that right. Like a speed bump Sort of yeah. You need to self reflect. Basically this is your assessment. The a could also be assessment Right agree so once you've honestly assessed what your pitfalls are. What do you think you do next to avoid those. So then the b of the h. a. b. It is behaviors so rather than thinking about the individual foods. You actually have to look. Habit is behavior. it's a matter of choices of what we do. So what behaviors. What actions do you need to change. What are the ones that you're doing poorly or that you're willing to shift. And then you have to identify the alternatives of what it is you want to do. So there's a behavior change specialist. Bj fog he's a phd from stanford and he's author of tiny habits. He says that you have to identify the ones that you want to do. You can do. That are impactful to be effective because it wouldn't make sense. Let's say if i just said oh. A healthy diet means eating more fiber. And i don't get enough salad so therefore i'm going to eat more coleslaw right. Why would i choose that. If i don't like cabbage that would be that would be like making myself. Gag it down. It's not one i want to do. You have to identify the ones that you're willing to do the our chief -able that you can do and that are live as a replacement. It's not enough just to say. I need to stop doing acts. You need to identify what actions you are going to do to to implement. So what what what. What would an example of that be perhaps like in. Maybe someone that you've done this with or someone you know that's gone through this with the behavior change. What's an example of that okay so first. Let's say that someone is looking at getting more calorie control diet so a healthy diet to them energy balance and they've identified They've asked themselves what's in the way that eat too big large portion. They drink sweetened beverages. Maybe they're mindlessly eating between meals so that mindlessly eating between meals are going to address and their behavior instead of randomly grabbing something from the kitchen to snack on instead they're going to choose to drink water or chew gum if they're not really hungry so they've said this is what i'm going to do instead. This is the behavior the alternative. I'm willing to implement so. Is that like when you think when you catch yourself doing that behavior that you want to get rid of you catch yourself doing that and then you go okay. Here's what i'm going to do instead of you try and build that in your mind your mind so exactly. That's the that's the eye of the of the habit is the implementing that change. And it's deliberate choice that you consciously have to make repeatedly like practice makes perfect until it's it becomes unconscious. I was trying to explain it as a brand new drive like a brand new student driver. You have to tell them. Okay you're gonna pull into the parking space and that your foot got to be depressed on the brake pedal all the way then. You're going to shift the car into park. Then you can turn off the ignition right and so there's like this process and they have to think about it because they're not used to it and for me to do that. It's like half a second. I can do all of those and i haven't even thought about it. I've done it so so so many times. So making those alternative actions is a deliberate choice repeatedly until it becomes second nature interesting all right well before we get too much further into the final steps here we just remind people that they can subscribe.

I like our army living army. All right well great. Well welcome to the platoon. everyone Thank you for subscribing. Now let's get back to the so so we covered the ha be but now we need to find out about it. The it right so you kind of touched on the i a little bit. You said that was implementation. Is that right. Yeah implementing change so the swapping of the when. Poor behavior for the improved. Okay so real quick just to recap so we'd first of all you got to define what health healthy diet means to you because it's it's different for everyone. It probably shouldn't be ep pizza. All the time probably shouldn't be Then you gotta ask yourself. What's in your way of achieving. That kind of diet you know. What are your obstacles. Be honest about that. And then he got to address those obstacles by figuring out what behaviors you need. A change can or what actions he needed to take So you know that you've got to implement it. What are some of the most. I guess i think you mentioned. Maybe that there's with implementations you deal with triggers. But what are some of the more common triggers. You know that gives us the urge to eat Like you mentioned mindless eating for example. Like you just kind of get up and you want to the kitchen and now that you there you open the fridge and grab a snack you know. So how do we kind of some of the most common triggers that lead to that kind of stuff. Oh man we're we're so easily tempted to eat. It could be the smell of something it could be that you. You hear the little chime of the ice cream truck. It could be a sound on serious. What so true britain. Let's let's let's do a quick one brittany. What do you think is a trigger for you like do you do. Have you identified any triggers for you. I can tell you you think of one. I'll tell you what. I think i think of mine. One of mine is definitely like just watching television. Which is i assume. Maybe a big one for people but watching tv like in the evening. If i like just put on family guy or something where it's like. I don't even really have to be paying attention. I literally sometimes like turn the show on started. And i will walk. Divide kitchen to go. Get a snack while the show plays. It's like what am i doing. Not even watching it. So is it the act of watching tv and at the same time. You're by the tv. No it's not because fans guys like a snack now. I don't see something delicious. And you're like oh i wanna go eat that like no no no. I don't think it's that it's not so you've already paired those two associated them. From the moment you click the remote. Exactly it's literally. Yeah its relationship with food. i know it does. a little bit are true. They're all kind of connected. But that is one that i've discovered i'm like i need to like stay active and not watching television because it like it literally is so paired. Now that i it's hard for me to fight it. It's very sold so so. Yeah we're talking about that. That few pairing. Oh britney came up with one. Okay go ahead. No i could just think of a few like naturally. When i'm at the movie theaters popcorn i mean you smell it everywhere and instinctively when i'm there i just feel like okay. It's time treat yourself. Get some candidates and popcorn. Enjoy you know. Enjoy the show that guy taking a. That's a silver lining for me. When you're you have. Hey when you're at home. And i'm sitting on instagram. I follow a lot of food accounts. And whenever i'm looking at it long enough it always causes need to go downstairs and get a snack or makes them eat. I'm always hungry after. I mean i guess that's and looking at food. Obviously so then you'll have to pare. Pare the action that you want to do something. So in the example. I gave before of the person that's mindlessly eating between meals and they said okay instead of my Wandering into the kitchen that they're going to drink water gum instead will. They're they're triggered. wanna pair. That with is every time they change room. So if i get up from the desk and i'm leaving my home office i'm gonna grab my water bottle to take with me. It's already in my hand and easy. You know to get up to my mouth or pull the chewing gum out of my pocket or something. so that's an example of pairing it with an action so andrew. I'm gonna ask you in yours of turning the tv on and wondering to the kitchen for some people that staying on the sofa all night because you said be more active instead. So are you in your. I'll say comfy clothes kind of your house pants pajamas. Whatever when you watch tv or you wearing workout gear. I that's rapidly in lounge. Wear it's i now. I've done more. My workouts are now more in the morning so yeah probably lounge. Yes that is that is true accent. Why do you break that me. Very comfy chair lazy blades. Put your feet up. It has yeah. I know about that thing. As long as it doesn't have like a food tray. That would the food trade. That i do not have that but yeah that is interesting so i wonder i do need to figure out like i've also found like i almost like if i just don't go in my kitchen i can get over it but like if i go in my kitchen it's all over and so i'm like just don't go in my kitchen. Sometimes we need a distraction. That's actually helps get in the way so for example if this is an after dinner time that you're talking about and brush teeth. Maybe than if you did teeth whitener or you did your dental rants or you put on your retainer or any of those things that really you know your mouth has to be fresh and pure clean for all the things to work so if if you do those as an interruption before you sit down that might help you break that association. That's interesting do have a night guard. So maybe i get in bed do yeah. That's not a bad idea. Yeah that's that's bright. That's that's really interesting Yeah maybe. I will definitely have to try that. That's definitely one that stood out to me that i'm like. This is a trigger for me. That i don't even almost realize it just creates this like urge and i almost feel like you know if children sit down and eat a meal in front of the tv. They start to develop that kind of Connection you know to where it becomes like this like you said paired thing and it's you've got to really work a little bit hard to break that perisher or like or like the expectation of dessert like since when since when did we have a desert following every single meal like excuse me it's supposed to be a precious treat to enjoy not okay lunches over piece of cake. Dinners over ice cream lunch over cookies. Dinners over pot now. That was awesome. that was almost. I feel like that's like a song. That's getting ready to start to there. You go that's awesome okay. This is a little bit of a side note on dessert. But i thought about it. And i thought i now when we order food and bring it back home. We eat the desert. If we get it we eat the desert. I hear me okay. And the reason is as it's like Nutrition is probably tear body but it has ice cream so it's like a position okay. Love that so we eat a first because my thinking is look that thing's gonna it's gonna melt. It's not gonna last. You can't really save it. It's not going to be the same so eat it now and the food your main dish you can save half of it for tomorrow or the next day so like i've kind of restructured my eating hierarchy. I guess when it comes to take just totally random. I'd desert i i. We don't have a dessert after every meal. Or here's my question. Would you do that with every type of dessert. Or is it only because ice. Cream's going to melt as i was saying i was thinking about that. I think it's just all about. Will it be okay if i save it for tomorrow. If i can't right the ki won't be the same hours you put it in the freezer for an hour while you eat the cookie cookies. Not warm anymore zelina. Reheat it all of a. You're using like energy. You know you gotta like pay. Your bill. And i don't know goes into making having that desert. Yeah but this side because we need to get back to habit but as there there is some justification to At least children to have whatever we would consider the dessert item to be served with dinner. So that it's not regarded separately. It's not a reward. it's not You have to eat your vegetables in order to get axed that when i worked for head start and that's a preschool program It was it was done at the same time. So if you serve the tacos and you serve the orange slices and you serve the little sugar cookies and you had the milk out and you did it all at the same time family style. The kids didn't down all the cookies before they ate the rest of you know. They chose the tacos and they had some carrots and they really places. Yeah hi brian. I'm sorry but i'm going through. This live right now and i cannot stand by listen to this perfect world situation. I honestly that's amazing for those kids. And maybe kid is just wild but because because they they knew that it was there that it was available that it was part of the meal and they would each get one well that i think that was in no matter. What exactly they just didn't put it on either. Played a few right. I've seen my niece and nephew. Though were they know they're going to get dessert at the end but half to finished their meal too. I mean i guess that's not quite sent them all at once but but here. Here's why i think we've gone to the desert comes after you finish your meal because you put it on theoretically it makes sense to me but in practice you put everything there and the kid eats the desert right off the bat and then they don't finish the important protein on their dish. And then you're in this big battle like you need to finish all of it. I give you the option you went there. I fine because we're trying to be all good like everything's available and then but then you didn't finish and now you didn't eat which you needed to announce a big argument about it and now you don't sleep well. Something's going on here time. Did it take time for the kids to create a behavior like that or was it something that they initially did the first time that you put it all out there also key also keeping cookie end of this is this is a a small portion controlled item. It's not like an eighth of a cheesecake. That has like a whopping five hundred calories than just plays the meal. I'm talking about the size of an oriole. i'm talking right. It's something modest. I can see that over time. Okay if i eat my food. It'll still be there. So i'll do both or or not but yet battling to finish the plate. Have you ever seen the little psychology films where they put kids in room with a secret camera and they left them with a slice of chocolate cake or and they said if you don't touch it you can have twice as much after ten minutes and the patients chance right. Yes watch all the mom. And dad's go through during quarantine with can't some of these kids amazed me others them going back to the habit thing that wasn't so much an intervention that that or behavior that the children chose but that was presented to them and like we talk about getting kids to eat right role modeling presenting it to them in a very neutral way but repeated multiple times. And that's what i was talking about the the implementing. The new behavior is repeated multiple times so that it becomes that becomes the second nature. It becomes the expectation of not sitting down and stuffing your face when you watch tv but maybe popping in that that night guard right right. Yeah exactly yeah and that's where it takes. I think practice with these things. Implementation is okay. Now you have to exert some discipline in sticking to your plan of how you created the plan with hiv. Basically you're implementing the plan and that's where it takes that discipline to follow your plan and not deviate too much from that. I imagine exactly okay. So that's that's h we gotta get to the t. Step five and the last step in the process t is tailoring the plan so that means you can tweak What triggered youth parented with or the alternate behavior to overcome. Whatever obstacles might come in the and so you have to monitor and evaluate to get there. So i'm going to give an example of Another h t a whole nother scenario. So let's say the healthy diet. This person says okay. I need something high in fiber and low in saturated fat to help lower cholesterol. that's their healthy diets. There a is. Why can't i get that done. Well i'm asking myself i'm assessing. I don't have time to cook. I end up eating out and frozen meals etc. So be they say. Okay the behaviors. I'm going to do instead of fried foods and heavily cheesy items instead of ordering those a water you know salad and vegetable side dishes and things without dairy so they plan that intervention. They said okay so now. I'm trying to order those things and i find myself when i'm scanning the menu trying to get lean select us leaner selections and get more fruits and veggies I'm out of time. it's. I'm i'm actually getting to my meal so late that i'm ordering quickly can't find them blah blah blah so then they have to tweak their plan and say okay well if the menus too overwhelming alternate now they need to maybe download apps that they can save favorites on the. You know the preorder menu or identify the pdf menus for sit down restaurants of of what they're going to get once they get there and so maybe it's not at the moment of ordering but they're making their decisions ahead of time and that's their tweak is they have to be able to do something a little different but still follow the same Objectives
The 2020 wrap up
"Black lives matter what has changed in two thousand twenty cents. Black lives matter. The shooting slow. Go down the random accident and go down to the political. Care go down. Of course we're the or the people who wanted to use this platform use this slogan for something. Good for change. Did that go down. The maybe the hype of data. Because me because it's called me because covert increased. Why did smoke. it's once again. It's a topic that's just stuck. It's always gonna be touchy. I will say one thing that changed. There was a lot of police reform that did happen. I know i will say the state by state. There was a lot of change that did happen So i'm not gonna say that nothing changed. You know. there was a lot of good that came of these movements I will say one other thing. That hasn't changed my overall stance on on the organization not the movement of the organization the organization still very much disagree with i thank you know the marxist roots of it and the overall attitudes and desires and policy prescriptions of them. I very strongly disagree with. And for that reason i hate the term black lives matter had been co-opted and also used for this movement. 'cause you know hey everyone who's out there with the black lives matter sign. That's one more person that's going to see it. And then maybe donate to the marxist organization but you know the movement did lead to some good for sure right. I mean and i completely agree and this even to the point where the words are more to a lifestyle that i literally have to live. You know without any choice. I'm about black life. And i think i matter across the board no matter what slogan over that will matter what corporation organizations associated with however. I want everyone to be aware of how much how many billions with an s of dollars were going to go to black communities because of this movement and i want you to be aware one year five years ten years twenty years. Have none of that. Money will come to those communities desperately in need. Yup and i would be remiss to bring up semantic overload because that was something we talked about in numerous episodes where word or phrase has numerous meanings. I hate it. it's come up with defunding. Police black lives matter. And all this stuff and we will get into it more. I'm sure with some of our other snippets talking about some of the other episodes as well of course freedom of religion and the supreme court. We talked about a couple specific cases in our episode. But you know just kind of thoughts on freedom of religion in general and court cases since then. A lot of different cases have been heard Some going in the quote unquote pro religion direction and some going in the quote unquote. I don't wanna say anti religion. What right but the religious group Opposite their position we've seen that state and church and state. Yeah that that they really aren't entirely separate right of whether that's a good thing a bad thing depends on who you ask but clearly. There's an intersection there. And i think that it deserves a little more hashing out you know. I think that these are issues that are going to keep coming up. You know we saw a lot of cases where churches were closed or forced to impose different different restrictions. Or things around cova. And i think we're going to continue seeing these things as we as we move forward and so it's important to see you know what what we think about now about that freedom and how far it can go new on exactly what i was gonna talk talk about like even with kovin other people other religious groups have like how are you able to shutdown churches versus casinos and then that's literally a conversation church state and then gambling which i'm sure every religion denounces so i mean i think president trump pass something where there's there's a there are allowed to have the integration of religion and politics. I think just like the money or in god. We trust on the money within the united states. it's all a facade. There's definitely an impact when when politicians go to churches or stand there and speak like we don't want that we want that separation but clearly the level of influence there's churches who confidently jolo sea. Search constantly says trump is our guy or one of the televangelists. Trump is our dude or on each be rocket obama. So yeah it's across the board to say that it's not a part of american culture has to say that american pies and fattening and i think you know it's kind of inevitabilities as much as we can push to limit the intersection between church and state. It's going to be inevitable. People bring their values in their religion into things as long as it doesn't become quote unquote excessive which obviously is subjective. But you know. I think that it's also important. That state stays out of church. Which is what we're seeing with some of these restrictions and stuff like that but we'll definitely have to do another episode like we did with freedom of speech diving into the freedom of religion.

The Machine-Human Interface with Alex Newman, CEO at Human Protocol
"We were mentioning this kind of to set a marketplace and the protocol. let's say. I think it's fair to say that's infrastructure is providing infrastructure for this and. I've seen that. You guys are also working on decentralized labor market you want to expand upon that a little bit technically h gap jesuit decentralized labor market. Right like these are all It's it's a little bit interesting. But but yeah. The human protocol can describe any interaction online between a human and a computer. We try to be very careful not to talk about future applications too much. We we talk about what we're excited about And so one of the things that i'm excited in that space a lot of people talking about labelling off machine learning either reinforcement or supervise learning. But they're just a lot of actions that human beings have to take in this ritualized form. It has to be documented online on that extended throughout our whole life. Everything from how banking records were. You know. I don't want to once again. I want to get too much in future applications. But we're pretty much everything in the there are so many times where humans are interacting with robots in this ritual listrik or specific way but capture is a very interesting one So when we first started this project it was actually pre the capture. We had organized. A all of the major work was online to solve some of the largest data. Labeling problems that the that our big customers needed and so we ended up making a poor man's capture just because existing labor online they They don't they they. They don't necessarily they're not perfectly trusted. Not all of them have the same training and so what we would do is we would send the same question out to multiple labor pools and really can sense. The answer across that net interest of consensus method is one of the key parts of the capture product. But we learned while using catches dataset. It has significantly less different. Ias's then trained users. So what does that mean so one of the examples that i bring up to people He discovered the hard way. Is what happens when you ask people whether or not something is a long sleeve shirt while it turns out what country you ask them from is going to determine whether or not that sure is short medium length or long line which i find to be incredibly fascinating and it turns out that most of these questions which we believe have surefire answers really only have probabilities and probabilities are social capture. Can give you a light onto those that you really can't get from a trained staff. In addition all the stuff around Any biases they might have due to their training or previous experiences. That all goes away. It's like asking a question across the whole world in addiction. Unlike some other capture products we really are worldwide. You know we work in china. We you know we we. We work in so many of us. Complete who play puzzles across the world
Super Bowl LV: The Goat vs The Future
"Well a ref- last time. We talked to you wild card weekend with six playoff games over two days and you pretty much didn't have any time to eat or sleep this weekend. We only had two games both on sunday. So is your home. Look by comparison on a weekend like this much cleaner. I can say that and not only do i have time to eat. I have time to cook. I'm very excited. That's awesome well. Let's start with the early game. The bucks beat the packers. Thirty one to twenty six tampa bay went up twenty eight to ten in this game. What was the key for them building on this big lead. I think a lot of it's just the pressure they were able to produce the packers reduced to having lucas patrick and billy turner on their offensive line and it gets shaquille barrett and jason paul. There really isn't enough. I mean they're used to having a top three offensive line in the nfl. In fact both of those teams are and without that aaron rodgers is under pressure much more often that affected a lot of throws and of a lot more often than we typically see second and eight jerseys. Jason pierre paul. I think that was a big part of it. But also i mean as many times as tampa bay receivers willing to drop the ball. I mean they are better receivers than the packers have in that secondary in that easy pretty good secondary. A huge storyline throughout this game was also the bucks on third down conversions. What did you see from them. So well under pressure a lot of it is just the packers third down defense was just not very well designed and this has been a typical problem for mike patton and his defenses. And i think the that the buccaneers kind of organised out of their game plan around what they would expect to see on third down and so you ended up seeing like for a brief period of time. They had one hundred percent success rate on third down and like a ten percent success rate on first and second down it was kind of nuts. But yeah i think for the most part. They anticipated some blitzes. This saw man coverage they decided. Hey you know i. I think that chris godwin. Or mike evans can beat this guy and this guy was usually kevin king but they were able to win a variety of throughout the game especially on third down where i think things were just a little bit more predictable for them in the second half. Tom brady three interceptions on three consecutive possessions. Third down to brady throws it under pressure. The packers failed to convert the last two of those into any kind of points. How we're the bucks able to hold that lead after three turnovers. Some of it is the individual talent of the players that they've gotten a secondary thing. Carlton davis is really put a stamp on the nfl especially in the postseason. But he's going to be one of those rising players to watch next season that will be identifying and he's played very well but i think some of it is just to have an enormously fast defense and i think was the kind of got a feel for what the packers were attempted to do offensively. They just had a better understanding of what needed to be done. We're the players needed to be in how to hit those landmarks because they weren't really being ton of their defense. From a schematic perspective. They were just kinda getting to their landmarks. a lot. faster. Whether against the runner of the pass the defining play this game was packers coach. Matt leflore making the call to kick a field goal on fourth and goal from the eight yard. Line down by eight points with just over two minutes. Left and tom brady on the other side of that ball. Instead of going forward here on fourth and goal makes this a five point game again really surprised by that decision joe. I thought that they would go for it on fourth down a reef where you land on this decision by matt leflore not to go forward on fourth down. I think it was a really bad decision. And i think you know based off of what my twitter timeline is saying. That's fairly universal agreement. Interestingly wasn't as strong analytical decision to necessarily go for it on fourth down versus kick. And i think you take a look at some of the calculators that are out there and you know it was better to go for it than to kick it. But given the fact that they had three timeouts plus they were ahead of the two minute warning. There's a little bit more time than you. Typically anticipate so from an analytical perspective. It doesn't seem like as bad of a decision. But honestly i think that you take into account some of these situational factors like the fact that the packers have the best red zone offense. Nfl history as far back as her. Dagoes which i think goes all the way back to like. Thank you ninety. I think that plays a role. I think the fact that tom brady is on the other side of the ball with a bevy of weapons and a healthy offensive line. I think that plays a role. And i think kind of every additional bit of context that we add to this decision makes those analytical models a little bit more often favor of going for it instead of kicking that field goal because they needed to have those two scores. It just doesn't really make a lot of sense of the was
The Story of How TSMC Came To Dominate the World
"So obviously tracy. We've been talking a lot about chips lately. But for all the episodes we've done we haven't hit like what is sort of a. I guess i would say the elephant in the room or the gorilla in the room that keeps coming up over and over again. We've been going at a. I would say from a us perspective. Very focused on the trouble at intel. But we haven't really talked about the success story. That is taiwan. Semiconductor manufacturing company better known as t s emcee. Yeah exactly right so every episode that we do it sort of comes back to them. What a juggernaut. They've become and of course you know. The sort of basic story is that manufacturing chips is extremely hard It's extremely expensive. And it's very difficult to scale until Is one of the rare companies that designs and manufactures. Its own chips. But that for a lot of these companies that are sort of exploding ri- gaining market share there Having taiwan semi manufacture them and taiwan semi is getting extremely good or is extremely good at a manufacturing and maybe Pulling away from intel some extent in terms of its manufacturing capabilities. Right and i think they actually invented the foundry model which you know this idea of just manufacturing chips which keeps coming up over and over and over again in all of our conversations as one reason the entire semiconductor industry has changed and one reason why intel is struggling but the thing i find kind of amazing like in twenty twenty one. We all take it for granted. That tsmc is this massive player in the semiconductor industry in the world. Really but i find it really really noteworthy and you know somewhat surprising. In retrospect that what is a single company on an island has emerged to really dominate chips. That are now vital to all sorts of things so computers smartphones cars. Everything i think. Tsmc manufacturers little over half of the world's chips so it's not quite a monopoly but again like they are the juggernaut in the room as he put it absolutely. And it's such a. I mean it's such a pivotal company for a lot of reasons. I mean you mentioned cars. It was just a story this week recording this january twelfth by the way there was just a story this week about how car manufacturers around the world are actually running into supply constraints because they can't get chips because of the chip manufacturers decided to reduce their production of automotive chips during the crisis in the spring on the expectation that demand wasn't going to be there and now they haven't ramped up taiwan semi They're to actually reporting earnings. This week expected to be very strong. Earnings are soaring. stock is soaring. And then of course. Because it's in the strategic position end because taiwan itself is in this Uh strategic position obviously between the us and china and the roll over its status. It's just an incredibly central player and sort of necessary to understand the story right a big player in tech big player across multiple supply chains in a bunch of different industries. Uncertainly player geopolitics as well. So we really talk more time on semi and we have the perfect guest to do that. Someone who knows all about the company who's been covering them for a long time since long before they were the dominant player They are today. We're going to be speaking to copen. He is a tech columnist at bloomberg. Opinion has been with us a bloomberg for fifteen years and he's actually been covering The tech industry from taipei specifically for the last twenty one years Everything about Taiwan semiconductor where it came from this important player so tim thank you very much for joining us. Hey thanks time guys to talk to you tim. How would you describe the importance of taiwan semiconductor in the world right now well as you assess just saying they are so huge. Tracy pointed out the creates. Such a large share of the world saw chips. There's probably not a single device in the world that doesn't have. Tsmc somewhere but whether it's a car die. Fine of course famously. But even some really unimportant boring things like temperature sense. A hiya or some led lights array there. They do serve much of the waltz products. They're they're basically everywhere and so if that would've stopped production. Tomorrow i think the global technology industry would grind to a halt very very
Is This The AOL Moment?
"Right in. The moment has never been a good thing. So much as in inevitable thing is this. It are we there and if this isn't it then what do we think it'll look like when it does arrive. Yes we are definitely there. I think maybe we were even there before this at the last major run up in what was two thousand. Seventeen up to twenty thousand. We saw a huge unprecedented spike in new user. Adoption point awareness of bitcoin and crypto currencies spiked as well as the guidelines. The regulatory space became more kind of fleshed out. And you know sure. There were still plenty of half baked projects some of which turned out to be scams but i think a lot of people learn about crypto was the scams included in how to protect themselves from it and people are still learning about it so i think we've already sort of reached at least the first milestone. Aol moment. but i've been on this journey for a while. And i remember a lot of moments like this. You know that were exciting for example. I don't know if anyone remembers this. But remember when bitcoin got like this first article on slash dot twenty ten or something like that and i remember hearing about it on a talk radio show back in twenty eleven or twenty twelve i think from gavin andresen going on the show. So you know. I've seen a lot of exciting moments with quite disappointing moments too. But this does feel like a special moment that we haven't yet seen so far and i think it counts as the aol moment humbug. When do we go from banking the on banked and it's all about the other six billion to simpson for investment banking billionaires. I mean you know. I'm a bit disappointed. I think that happened the same time. Block streaming integrated tether probably. I know i know listen. I'm really happy that bitcoin is getting the attention. It's getting positive negative. And i'm really happy for a lot of people who waited very patiently and are seeing agree return on investment but at the same time like applauding j. p. morgan for finally finding in the pits of the dark saw the opportunity to praise an acknowledge bitcoin. Because it might make the money really. That's what we're doing a year ago or a little bit more than that the ceo. There was saying something really negative about big code but Bitcoin do you guys remember that. Yeah bitcoin is dead says j. p. morgan before saying it reaches one hundred thirty thousand sometime in the near future. How here's the thing as much as i'm excited about the excitement that everybody's excited about. This is really the kind of fickle attention that is going to go away as fast as they came.
Creating 5 Star Special Events in the Virtual Age
"Let me introduce you to our two guests. Today i was page in nineteen ninety-four. Liz established liz page associates and combined her theatrical talent with a passion for the arts and human services under her leadership. Lp has built a reputation for producing special events for nonprofits and corporations that not only meet but exceed significant financial marketing and engagement goals. Engagement goals liz and her team signature experiences with unforgettable power and style tell their next level of success and visibility. It is always nice to talk to liz page liz. Welcome so nice to be here with you. John and having to talk about this fascinating new world refined ourselves so liz is also joined by her colleague. Amanda harmless since joining liz page associates. In two thousand one that would be nineteen years ago if my math is right. Amanda has specialized in turning big ideas into detailed roadmaps. that take clients from their vision to reality. she guides event design and fundraising strategy by partnering with corporate and nonprofit clients. She began her career in development and external affairs at the ywca in boston helping to produce the annual women's event women's leadership event a showcase of top female leaders in greater boston. Amanda it is a pleasure to have you. Thanks so much john. It's great to be here with you today. So liz let's start with you. The challenge of nonprofits being overly reliant on special events. This challenge for nonprofits is actually been your meat and potatoes for twenty five years. And so i'm mostly interested in as a firm that's in the business of special events This must have been a challenging year. For you. And i wondered how you and amanda navigated twenty twenty from a business perspective. Well it was. It has been assassinating journey. I will tell you it started in february when we were producing a conference in lake. Tahoe and amanda said you know. Have you guys heard about co vid. Do we think we need a covert protocol of. What if something happens while we're all gathered In this big Resort in tahoe and ferry. That doesn't serve ury. okay. So amanda put together. What is the scenario of what if thought through but not as detailed as we would find out it would need to be then. We got back to boston and really had an oh shit moment when life stopped and i saw my staff walk out on a friday afternoon never to return until they're still not bad right. You know i feel like. There's a cigarette smoking in an ashtray at a at a desktop. Or there's ice cubes melting in a tumbler. It's just life stopped and Blessing for us. And i have to say. Kudos to amanda. The blessing for us is that within a week she had found a certification course from the event leadership institute where we sent two of our event producers and they became certified virtual meeting and event planners and they learned about this new world and we were able to quickly take to our clients. Who on the precipice. I'll tell you that was the game changer for us and then i have to give kudos the ppp. We got we were one of the first. I worked with a great bank that we had already established a relationship with which was really important. We got p p p funding. And i wanna say it is part of why we are still here today and you are on a very long line of people who are very much saved by that so i know that from my perspective and i also deal with nonprofit clients. Obviously that i've learned a lot about nonprofit leaders this year and before we dig into the details of special events. In what you. I wanna learn sort of big takeaways from your certification to amanda But you know liz. You've been a part of the boston nonprofit community for long time and know a lot of nonprofit leaders. I'd really like to know what you earned about nonprofit leaders this year what did what did you learn about them you know. I learned that they kind of fall into three groups. There's the adventurous and the desperate and they're in one group and they were the ones who clearly saw all my god my special event that is truly we. We work with many nonprofits that it is not half of their budget. Not not after their income. Joan it is like ninety five percent of their income right. which means these events. Are you know for these small organizations. They're mega blasters. You know there are million plus but some of those executive director said. We're going ahead. we're gonna do it virtual. I don't care if it's all on zoom we are going to do something on may twenty first so that was great. There were others who were more cautious. They said i don't know about this world. I don't know how my my sponsors are going to react or how audiences going gonna react. And i am lucky enough. That i have a reserve. I have saved for this rainy day. So we are going to let go of this annual event and we're going to not do it period and there were other brave ones. Who said you know what we're going to be creative. We're going to make this work working to postpone for a few months but then we are going to do something. And let's do it as
SportQuake CEO on Launching EsportQuake, Getting Cristiano Ronaldo into Garena Free Fire
"Fire at freeflyer is actually one of my favorite games to focus out of the Esports gaming world right now due to its massive success primarily in Brazil, which also makes it a natural choice for football partnership home considering Brazil's love of football going back decades and this partnership centered around operation quota, which debuted in December and allowed players of free fire to play em as Cristiano Ronaldo the which is pretty cool deal Matt. How did that deal come about? What was the process like to bring one of the biggest names in the world? It's Sports in other entertainment and so like Liberty into a mobile Battle Royale greater freefire. Yeah, it was it was a really exciting project to work with the guys on Thursday from the whole kind of ideation and blueprint of the idea through to the the integration and Page the final execution both in terms of the in-game integration and and the marketing around the partnership I think life to start at the beginning. I set up sport Quake fifteen years ago, and I had a background in media and Thursdays soccer or football a depending on what we're calling it today, and I'd worked at a number of large advertising agencies and then moved into sport media page. With Sky Sports is the Premier League host broadcaster and then spent four years as commercial director at Tottenham Hotspur, which is one of the big three London football franchises wage. And when I set up sport quake in that time over the. I view is very much that we're in a world where they, you know Sports Media Tech and gaming increasingly are coming more and more together and we're seeing lots of really really interesting collaborations as a result of that and primarily right. It's about bringing these two different audiences together to create more impact and awareness. And so as you and and your listeners, no doubt will be aware or if not, you know free fire, which is owned. No, Karina which is part of the C group. We've worked with the c group to some time and we've worked with an e-commerce business they have which is very strong in Southeast Asia that offers a service similar to Amazon in those markets and see is actually the best performing Chef globally over the last twelve months. I think it's kind of five EXT over the last twelve months and is within that organization as the e-commerce business Sharpie. It has to read free flight and we're done some work with with Sharpie with Ronaldo in the fall of 2018 and it performed extraordinarily well and through that and then relationships with out throughout the group the guys that Greener thoughts. It could be something here to do something with him as well. But with their own sort of twist and that was really where the kind of Genesis of the idea came from to bring his audience and IP together with With Their audience and they obviously are the the number one game. If not, the number one guy one of the the very top games in the world. I mean, I think they have something like two hundred and fifty million downloads and a hundred million daily sneezes and and Ronaldo himself in terms of his social media following putting aside what he delivers through the TV platform around baseball games. He his social media follow me is is the biggest in the world or anyone right? So he's got over for bigger than the cardassians bigger than J Lo and a dog Oh force and he's got something like four hundred and fifty million plus followers. And so the idea was to bring these two giants together in Partnership. Absolutely. I pulled up the list of the most played mobile games by player count and you said four hundred fifty billion. That's exactly what grade at last reported. According wage is article it August 2019, but they were one of the most downloaded mobile games in the world in 2019 to your point and have driven just a pretty insane bout of viewership at my favorite example of just sort of how big Great a free-fire is is the Esports organization loud gave a down in Brazil. They launched in I think mid June 2018 and have crossed their one point seven billion views on their YouTube channel for comparison the FaZe Clan account, which has been running for ten years now and has numerous viral videos is that just over what billion views so two years loud gaming which focuses almost entirely a great a free fire has completely surpassed FaZe Clan's called Dead output. Yeah, really quickly that just kind of gives you an idea of hey, this is how popular this game is. And and I think really where their their their view was listen, and as the market leader, we really want to lead and and and set the agenda and you know clearly we have as you just said large choice, you know of of of of gamers in terms of you know, everything from Hardcore to get real Gamers, but there's something really exciting here that we think we could do to Delight. Both are are cool gaming fans while also bringing in even more mainstream players to the game and also just kind of Setting the agenda for the industry in terms of you know, this is how you do these collaborations. Absolutely, that's really crucial to and let's talk a little bit about that collaboration. We you mentioned how everything is coming together and free fire it off is actually representation of just how far Tech has advanced recently. What do you think about what mobile games were even four or five years ago to the point that there now seems reals which is the most server intensive Gabe that you could a badge it with 100. I'm not sure how many people actually drop into free-fire but you know, the typical number is 100 people dropping in at the same time as to do that auto mobile photo, but will technology and something that old he became possible in the last few years. And now you also see at the same time the ability to bring Cristiano Ronaldo into the game and that's something that you know, we've seen with games like FIFA in the past where they model people they model real athletes in those situations, but there's something different to bring home. Into a battle royale, I'd have the play a character this case kro. Do what had to happen on the back end to make this a reality. Was there any hesitation for any of the parties about potential free Christian although into a game like free fire? Yeah, so so obviously we've worked with Ronaldo and his people a number of times before the great relationship with them. And as I say, he had worked with us before with their e-commerce business shopping and so there was a relationship with the group home and we obviously talked him through the the opportunity. We Karina and very much felt that the worst some things to be aware of around the table game it was but that if we executed it in in the right way that it could be really amazing. And so, you know and and back to your point about the the quality of of tech and delivery nowadays, you know and and huge shout-out to to Garena, you know, they they they pull together this amazing kind of personality and character both conceptually and also graphically off and it was developed in conjunction with Cristiano and his team as well in terms of the various things that he could do and so forth and so, you know the exit the idea Asian execution that have been phenomenal when as you say that, you know, we wouldn't be able to do that if if take wasn't where it where it is where is today off? But yes, it's it's really it's really amazing and the thing that's so you

We're going to be sharing advice and tips about how to maintain your sanity stay productive and stay healthy while we all stick this out. Maybe you even have some new year's resolutions along these lines that we can help you realize later in the show. We're going to have some recommendations for specific gear. That can help you find peace of mind. But first let's talk about some practical lifestyle tweaks that can get you there. So alan you have this interesting title of service editor and here it wired that means that you edit oliver coverage that we tag as reader service which is usually like stories that you help people navigate their lives in the digital era. So you are our expert in this Topic so please tell us what are some of the ways that you found that you can pass along to help people focus. So you're in trouble. If i am your expert but that said one of the best tips. One of the first tips. That i give to anybody. When they're trying to get things done is to find the best time of day for you to be productive. Find your best working hours. So there are a lot of people who get up early by nature of their job and they're really not a morning person. They're more productive in the afternoon so they're just kind of muddling along and struggling in the morning. Don't force yourself to do that. Like give it a good try right to try and get up early and get stuff done. But like i work best in the middle of the night when the sun is down i am just power through work so in the morning i will just work on emails. And i'll drink a lotta coffee and just kinda struggle through until the sun starts to wane closer to the horizon and then suddenly get a burst of energy and i start getting things done. So if you're one of those kinds of people definitely try to find a way to make the time of day. That's best for you the time that you do the most work I would also tell people to set little rituals for yourself little things kind of get your brain in the head space that okay. Now is the time that i'm going to transition from doing something or something else to getting stuff done. I have a book that i am supposed to be writing. And it's going. It's not a surly going well but it's going and i like to brew a cup of tea before my writing sessions because there's there's something about the steam rising from the cop and it's all pretty and it's floating through the air and everything it just kind of chills me out and puts me in the head space of okay now. It's time to right now. It's time to be creative now. It's time to float like steam off of the water like it's time to get busy so those little rituals help out a lot alan before we go onto your next steps. Tell us what your book is about. The book is a productivity book about productivity. It's a book. Productivity advice for people for whom traditional productivity advise Doesn't always work so. Yeah the story. I like to tell is. There are a lot of people for whom. I used to work with a guy who would block off every tuesday as no meeting tuesdays. And if somebody including his boss or our boss's boss would try to schedule him for a meeting on tuesdays he'd reply and say no tuesday's is my no meeting day. I'm focusing on work. He could get away with that I don't think i could have gotten away with that. And i think there are a lot of people they would hear that tip and be like. I can't do that. My boss would have my head if i did that. If that's you then. Hopefully this book will help you. I'm not going to tell you how to get away with no meeting day of just going to tell you how to work around it so you can still get stuff done right right. That's a great point. A lot of the tips. We here make the assumption that you have ultimate control of your schedule when in reality and a lot of work places You don't have as much control over things you have to go with the flow and respond to your bosses needs. Okay so what are some of your other say breaks. What are some of the other tips. Alex breaks take breaks. It seems counterintuitive. Right because i i have given given. I gave a seminar about this at the times where i used to work and people were like. What do you mean taking breaks makes you more productive. And i'm gonna listen if you have ever struggled to work for hours. Upon hours upon hours straight you'll understand that at the start like when you really find your flow and you're really into it. You really productive but by the end of that work session. You're tired you're dragging your barely progressing if you had taken a break to recharge earlier before you feel like you would rather do anything but what you're doing now. You could come back recharged and ready to go back to that. Highpoint so by all means take breaks. It actually does help you be more productive in the long run and also i just tell people take naps like. I'm a huge advocate of the workday nap if i vanish on slack guys probably should assume i'm napping and and i mean but then the thing is i. I'll take an app. i'll just like does offer like an hour or something and then come back. And i'll power through and people be like alan. You're working really late. And that's exactly what i want you to think but really i just took a nap for two hours. I'm working late and that's also be my book by the way. So i wish i had the i wish i had that superpower and the ability to just fall asleep in the middle of the day. I just i can't do it. Yeah it's it's tough. it is so lauren. I know that. I know that you have a pretty good tip that relates to calendering and sleep hours. Why don't you tell us about it. Okay so i really hate to be this person and every so often you'll see a cacophony of voices on twitter who are actively fighting against this tip saying you don't need to wake up early to be productive but my my thing is i. I liked wake up early early in the morning has been a great time for me to take care of personal administrative stuff or talk to people. I need to talk to you in different time zones or try to get exercise out of the way or even maybe to journal little bit or just. Write down some stuff that i've been thinking about. That's not related to being technology journalist. i like that because then it's not hanging over my head. The rest of the day is i have to focus on other other work tasks i was going to say more onerous work tasks working for wired is not onerous caveat to data to point is that just may not work for some people so for example. If you have small kids you may have childcare responsibilities in the mornings that make this impossible but then my advice would be just to carve out that time night. Carve out an hour for yourself to do this Something that just gets you sort of out of the flow in such way that when you do have to be in the workflow you can focus more fully on

IMG's Max Eisenbud on 2021 Tennis
"Everyone john wartime here hoop everyone well into this week. Sports illustrated ten podcast. Welcome back to this week's guest max eisenberg. He's the head of m tennis one of the real power players in tennis. We spoke to max earlier this year when there was so much swirling uncertainty Can a little less uncertainty recently up. A number of you wrote in then about how much you liked perspective. You were surprised. By how unfiltered he was figuring. We would check back in with max on this day. In early december we learned that yes there will be a twenty twenty one australian open To go it's been pushed back three weeks. There's a quarantine. it is still unclear. What will happen to the events that preceded and The events that are now being superseded in the calendar and february but the australian open looks like it is on. I can redo an email that Craig tyler descent to players that that made. It tweeted me Quote we know. It hasn't been easy for anyone in tennis. We will also pay for charter. Flights player and entourage. Quarantine cops meals and accommodations player. Combination will be covered for their entire. Stay will pay the full. Seventy one million dollars in prizemoney were working with tours on a redistribution with large increases in early rounds likely first-round parts of one hundred thousand dollars. Obviously tennis. australia can't do that without considerable financial paint. It won't be easy cove. Nineteen is hurt us financially this year similar to everyone else's experience but we think it's critical for global tennis the player group in the fans at the ao proceeds to help stave off any atrophy in our sport So that That some good news coming out of melbourne And i'm sure there will be a lot of Happy players fans coaches everyone else in the tennis infrastructure So mac tonight talk about that. That been a breaking news. At happy to breaking news what can players expect We talk about how. Kenneth has held up in this strange ear. Why he doesn't like the t. As china policy wide ranging conversation about tennis in twenty twenty and looking forward to next year this strange Rotation around the sun So here from his home. Office in florida maximum. All right thanks for. Thanks for stopping by how you doing. Good i think is good as you can be in this world. We speaking of good. We are a few hours removed from this. I don't know if it's an official announcement but a quasi-official announcement. There will be an australian open. Looks like it's going to start every eighth three weeks of pushback from your perspective. Good thing bad thing. When did you hear what do you make of this announcement. I mean i think it's whenever you can play. You know it's a good thing. And i think the tennis world Has done a pretty good job of trying to play and keep the players safe I think the us open the catalyst. And i think or probably appreciating more. Now what the. Us open did seeing how difficult it has been with the australian open. So i think i think the. Us open really started. Everything engage some confidence players. and then You know and then you know what's happening with. The australian open is is pretty incredible minutes many every day. Something new You're at the mercy of the government and You know players have concerns like they should And there's some pretty strict quarantine common in australia. I mean some of those That's pretty tough. I mean and you know way different than the. Us open the us open really created a bumble. A look like the players were like going to camp. You know they're playing cards and having fun and and stuff. And i don't see that way you're in australia. So what are you gonna the takeaways from all this is the it's trillion government doesn't mess around. What what. What are you telling your players. But i imagine they're calling frequently for updates telling them be ready keep training keep working You know in every day. It's something new. We're trying to keep everybody updated in real time And that's players coaches parents. Lot of anxiety. I you thought your company. You had to get ready really quick because the i was you thought you were going to need to leave on december fourteenth and that was eating up people didn't know when do i take my vacation. Especially the guys that were playing late on now all of a sudden you're not rushing. It's it's even later so you know. Tennis players are creatures of habit. I mean they have you know so this has been very a lot of anxiety for the players.
Lisa Raymond on setting her own agenda
"All right lisa. Raymond welcomed tennis dot com podcasts. It is awesome to have you. Thank you guys for having me so much. Where in the world are you. Let's let's start with that hotel room. I know that shocking to people but Actually in baton rouge louisiana right now been working for the past year with alec and My old coach Andy brandy is the head men's tennis co-chair lsu and kinda long story but We're actually bringing them on To be part of the team so we're here Doing some training with him and he he's going to be a part of our team moving forward and It's been awesome. Been here almost two weeks now. And it's going to be one of our training bases now rally which is going to be great so So yeah that's why we're in baton rouge andy brandy the andy brandy as andy brandy. Yes very familiar to me names. There's only one. Andy randy will ever be one handy brandy so you love them or hate him and i've always loved them. It's true you either have these. Andy it's either. You have this unreal relationship with andy or you. Don't you know and he'd be the first to admit that he. Andy me the iranian. You know he'd be the first to be like you know. It just isn't working or at works and andy. I hit it off from the time. I was seventeen when i went to school. Went to florida and You know if there's one person in my career that i have. I owe pretty much everything to because of that foundation he built. It's handy so yeah absolutely. Oh that's amazing. You don't really hear very often. I guess sometimes you can hear about a player that can just have a very. That's i mean that's a lifelong relationship. Lifelong yeah but yeah. I mean he Again i mean he. I coached he coach me throughout my pro career on and off the end And then like. I said i mean he's family. I mean him and his wife and his son i mean we were just over there the other night for dinner and and hadn't seen them forever haven't seen as whites and it was just like yesterday. I mean they're just near and dear and Just really really special people. Were you always gonna jump into coaching. I think he finished up in two thousand fifteen th us open with madison keys as your last partner and then she would have been your first pupil in a way is that was that. Always the plan when you're playing. No it wasn't at all. I'm just kinda just happened Very good friends with lindsay davenport. And so lindsey was coaching mass in at the time and lindsay still playing two thousand fifteen and lindsay was just like look. I just. I can't really do this fulltime. Would you be interested in of coming on You know traveling with her some weeks if it didn't interfere with your doubles. Maybe you guys could place in doubles. It'd be great for her. And and so i was like yeah sure like you know it just. I hadn't really ever really thought about it. And then i did. I did think about it. And and i loved it. I love I love coaching. And i love just kind of Being part of a team in our party why. I probably did so well in doubles because i love being out there with somebody but So for me it was like a great segue from retiring. Because i literally went from the us open finishing my last match to five days later. I was in quebec city with madison. So it was like. I never really like had to put my rackets down and sit and be like oh my god. I'm retired here so see us do. That's kind of how just kinda leads dad. And and then. I took a break from coaching. And then allie. Approach me with this opportunity and jumped out. I mean least technically. You're not retired. You played last year. This is true this is true. This is true. Technically twenty thirteen was not your last match to good point and i plan on the i. I've got a few goals out there. That i still wanna possibly achieve so i So yeah so. I just to get in better shape. Get my butt out there and hitting a little bit more and But yeah no. I'm not totally retired. I guess you could say the one thing. I do want to bring to light. You said that you wanna get in better shape You went through a phenomenal transformation last year. And you still looked incredible. So thank you. Tell us about that. Because i remember kind of last year in colorado was the first time that being you kind of really got to know each other news mean from the last time i had seen. It's a different person. Well thank you. Thank you for saying that and Know it was. Just i have to i truly i hate to say it but i so much. Unit to allie. You know what. When i got to the upper take with her just kind of really took a look in the mirror and realize that you know i was just not happy with me how i was feeling and what i was doing and And as a coach. I just felt like too. It's like i need. I wanted her to be able to look at me and be like okay. We'll look what she's doing or look how good she looks. You know as far as fitness. And she's working her butt off you know and and I basically said you know. Look my fitness. 'cause she's a man you know i mean she's a she's unreal shape and under athlete and she loves her fitness.

"The one way you can communicate. Fire Ham radio and amateur radio operators really step up when those you guys trained for this all year long I know. That's why we're treating this as a chain exercise. Even. Though there's nothing going on we don't expect anything This provides training good on you. That's great. So what can I do for you today? We'll I have been thinking about this for quite some time, and lately there's been quite a bit of publicity about flaws in consumer grade routers that are unattached and the one that I had been using for several years. They haven't updated the front where data for about three years. So I decided to build my own something more capabilities. So, what I'm to do is I've got many PC with four Internet ports and I had a switch and couple actually three ubiquity access points for life I and I'm going to build my own router. I'm thinking at this point of pf sense but perhaps something along open sense or one of the other firewall operating systems longtime Lennox Guy. So the Knicks don't bother me I'm just to not familiar with this aspect of it and I. Know. You have talked about in the past about your house, how you have set up multiple submits for Iot, and that's one of the things that I wanted to do. So two questions actually is, do you have a preference on what operating system is the best one to use and second? How would you configure the land? Considering the fact we've got four ports one for the wide area network one for the main one iota one. So the guest network. This. Is something I've wanted to do for some time you probably listen to you should listen to our security now podcast with Steve Gibson because he talks about this a lot. He's really great on this subject. He runs PF since likes it. In fact, he does it's too not too late but you've got another route he instead of using an old PC lying around I'm sure he has a few of those actually has a little appliance that he buys. From a company called net gate the S G eleven hundred that runs PF sense. So it's a, it's a little you know arm processor almost an IOT device, but it's got all the features that you need to run pf since he likes PF since a lot it's open source I don't have any strong opinion about other versions of PS sense. But I, think PF senses is kind of the way to go as for segmenting your you know your land. you can. I'm sure do that very easily with upsets you may have to put extra Ethernet cards in that box so that you can have them have different Ethernet. connectors but I don't think that's going to be a problem at all I know Steve Does that with PS. So that's that's going to be a simple thing to do. It's actually a really good idea because you'll keep it up to date and pf since is much more. I. Think Much More Secure and certainly much more powerful solution for doing your own routing I've been meaning to do this exact thing. In fact, I wanted to get the gate little net gate box, but as many of US geeks. have. PC's lying around that. We could use for this kind of thing I guess you could even probably use a raspberry pi or something like that. But you've got something more powerful, which means you get more throughput that way..

I think it's like a very complicated three steps thing that you have to run several things. I've been all over the search engines for that has been using a program from e. Cam that works beautifully. gives you a song. It's called E. Cam live software switching. It's really nice and there's a free trial take a look at that and it does show up as your as your Webcam. I know I know but does it. Does it integrate with the Stream take for example Dick? I'm trying to move Some workshops into an online form. You're using this as yes yes. That's exactly the thing I'm looking at right now. So that is just that integrates so nicely into obvious and then you can but only the only does the live streaming thing and the recording thing but not the virtual Webcam thing which so I'm using The black magic mini which is just phenomenal and that is a visual Webcam. That shows up as a Webcam and that does all of that in more I it's funny because you know we're way ahead of the game because we've been playing with this for years so we we've got the setups to do it so with the mini and a couple of Hdmi live HDMI out cameras. I can do a whole studio. That's got four. Hdmi's in one of them could be fairly new isn't a jazz brand new. They just announced many pro which has built in streaming so you can that has a streamer in it. You don't have to use the software for the streaming But that is a really great solution. It's basically like your stream deck except it's it's it's litter. It's time to be a video switcher. It's the real hardware switcher. Yeah Yeah I think the mini- is fast but it's going to be hard to get maybe not backward. Mbh when I ordered it but So took me a month or two to get it. That's a key for three hundred bucks. That's a great choice. That's the that's how much it is. Yeah it has type-c out that shows up as the Webcam on your computer so all of that switching and then it has. It has software that uses the term software. So you have a lot more capability in the computer that you can assign to it than just twenty six which is but it has picture in picture four hundred years here but that includes tax. Now it's an important taxes and so bad really a nice solution. I've been very happy with us. Looks good if you WanNa do streaming the problem with the mini pro. That's three hundred bucks more. So at seven hundred seventy year. Yeah it's expensive and that will be back ordered. Probably we black magic stream last week where they announced it was really really interesting. I love with the eight. You Probably Watch that stream and you can see what they can do. It's really amazing. It is back ordered. But it's Yeah that's definitely a potential solution yet. Basically gives you all this capabilities street. I'M GONNA BRING THIS DREAM DOT com because it's more complicated because I have to integrate one remote participants host as long as that. You need to then you need to put him on a computer with HDMI out show. He's an input but he's remote as in really remote. Nobody's saying if he's skype or does he skype. What does he used to get to We we have different ways to do that. So whatever issues you put him on a laptop with h out and now he goes in the Swisher and his audio and Video Camera. One camera two. That's okay I misunderstood. You now makes perfect sense. Yeah totally do. The only limit is for for H. Ports if not. It's plenty but I think it's plenty for ninety percent of people. Do Thank you Chris. All right thank you until next week take care. I suddenly realized. Thank you Chris for spending some time on that On some zoom tips. I realized we could probably spend a whole show or to giving you tips on participating in video conferences and having better video from your house. It's something Chris has been doing for years because he does video podcasts. From his home I normally come into studio to podcasts. We have a very nice video studio but I have all the tools and it's not. They're not expensive to do it at home product that I use that I really like comes from Black Magic. Black magic design. They call it. They have a line of video switchers called the ATM and they recently came out with the eight ten mini which is a three hundred dollar hardware. Switcher lets you have up to four. Hdmi inputs to audio inputs. And then it it itself outputs as a Webcam so you plug it in to your computer. The computer says Oh. That's a Webcam. And now you can do all the switching so you could have multiple people in your house or you could have people on skype. Come in you really can do. Quite a bit of video production and has transitions. It has green screen has a lot of the features. You know big television studios have honestly when I when I watch So funny to see you know all the network television now being done from people's houses you know somebody was saying If you watch I don't know if you watch live with Kelly which is a great show. I used to be on a regular basis as their Tech Guy. Way Back Way back when when it was with. Kellyanne reaches but now it's Kelly and You know the other Guy Ryan seacrest and apparently Ryan's doing it from his kitchen. I haven't seen it yet. And he's got his laptop propped up on books like the rest of us. Don't you think? Abc could go over at his house and set them up. You know. Just give them a camera. Maybe I really do wonder when I see some of these network productions and they're making mistakes. We used to make fifteen years ago when we first started podcasting. Well I guess they're just starting. They're just beginning aren't they? If you've got any questions glad to answer Give me a call right. It's okay Richard in grand rapids. Michigan is next. I Richard Leo LaPorte the Tech Guy. Leon Happy Easter. Oh I hung up. On Cody Cody. Call me back. Forgot we had him on. Hold all that time. Happy Easter to you Richard. That's all right we'll get we'll get cody and eleanor. Back on the line Politics Yeah what can I do for you? Well I got a Samsung S. Five cell phone and it had it for about five years. Run through two batteries. What I'm asking you for is how can I tell when it's time to replace it when it's done when you're done with it maybe more importantly so you already have replaced the batteries? That's usually the first and pretty much the only thing that's GonNa wear out on a smartphone. The battery you get about two years three years out of it and then it just doesn't hold a charge but that's already happened to you in your replaced. It makes it good as new. The next thing to worry about is when do updates stop when his Samson going to say and I believe that's happened already for the S. five when a Samsung going to say we're not going to give you the latest security patches and that's when maybe especially with android now I have to figure you're a smart Guy Richard and you probably don't download? Oh I don't know Russian wallpaper APPs right right. Yeah you're not going to hacker DOT COM to get the latest cracked version of something. No in fact if you honestly if you don't install any new software on their chances are you're fine almost always on android and this is true actually by Os to the hacks. The bad guys get in through malicious apps so as long as even though Samsung is not updating it and you're using an old version of android I don't know what are you android five android six old version of android. That's all okay because it's still works. It really the only issue security and unlike windows where the security because such a problem on windows that bag I can get stuff into your system without you. Download anything mobile operating systems are pretty much designed not to be vulnerable to that the big vulnerability there is is APPs. So I would say as long as you're happy with the five. It still works the APPS you want to use still work and you don't and you're very careful or better yet. Don't download new APPS at all. No right that's me. You're fine okay. That's the one thing to be aware of. Is the security issue. What would be the? I don't want to the latest greatest. Were being a newer well. Samsung is now up to the ten. So you're five back behind times little bit back and the S. ten Actually I apologize. They're up to the s twenty but that really should be the s eleven so I probably just released. He has twenty. I actually would not recommend that. But because he has twenty came out you could get an S. ten. Then I I knew I was never a fan of the five. I loved the S. One two three the five. I was a little disappointed within the six was great the eight so. I think that they've gotten better the only thing you might not like the size. They've also gotten bigger but take a look at the ten. That would be a more affordable because they've come out with a newer version and yet still very up-to-date and boy. The cameras have gotten really good since he has five. Okay well thank you. You're welcome Richard. Thank you happy Easter now. I have to apologize to my buddy cody and eleanor. I'm so sorry. Press the button too fast. I'm glad you got back in cody. No problem I Apologize House Eleanor. She okay good. She's sleeping in the back. Seat of the truck. Is that why you're driving around? Yeah well we're we're visiting the family through doors and windows. You know I've noticed people doing that. It's so cute. I was visiting my son. I stayed on the curb he was at his porch. And then right next door. The neighbors were doing the same thing. Think it's so sweet and they want to see her. Of course that's the new baby. Exactly exactly how fun? So what can I do for you? Well much like many of your callers. The yesterday I recently bought an epson fast. Foetal scanner isn't that funny. Y- that's good and do you like it. It awesome I bought it before you know. We're all stuck at home and had time on our hands But now I have a perfect perfect opportunity to both through some old photos. Banned you bet Along with that and obviously having a newborn taking a bunch of new photos yeah trying to figure out a process for taking some of these pictures with Meta data and things like that now the Epson you probably know by the way sponsor we talk about the fast photo a lot One of the things it does. It's really cool. As it does to side they'll get the back and it will add. What's on the back to meditate so it does some Meta data but obviously your your parents. When they took pictures of you did not read. Hashtag Cody Hashtag. Two years old. So there is additional. Meta data that you might want to add at and that's going to be done in software and really comes down to your photo organizing tool. Do you have one that you use using bridge adobe bridge okay for some of that one of the things? I'm also doing uploading all the photos to Google photos which does a facial recognition by the way that was my first recommendation for automatic doesn't just face recognition it. Will I type in Paris? And then we'll give me all my pictures of Paris. It's pretty smart so I think that's a very good starting point then. Does it automatically? You don't have to do it. Yeah that seems to work really well what I was. Kinda hoping you've arrived. Where are you now? We were picking up our Easter Dinner. Oh how fun. Oh that's one. Sorry for the noise no no I don't mind I like I'm kind of living vicariously through you. Cody and your newborn. What's your and your wife to I take with you. That's right. Yeah she's She's riding Shotgun Nice So so you're a photographer using bridge. You must be. You must have the dopey creative suite. Yeah so light room. Of course is is the tool that most photographers using has excellent. Meta data technology. If that's what you WANNA do okay I would not hesitate to use Light Room for that. We used to use Picasso remember. What a great program that was and I'm so sad. Google bought and it There's nothing you know. There's there's programs sort of like that like are you in a Mac or PC easy. Yeah Earth view their programs. Kind of like that Bridge has that capability to. I mean what is it that you're missing from those programs. Oh one of the things you know like Google photos. You can search by a person's face forget. Hang on hang on for just a second. We gotta take a break Octavia talk to you off the air as you get your Easter Dinner. Hope you all enjoying your Easter Sunday. Leo LaPorte the tech. I more calls and drabbed Matteo coming up. Sorry.

"The Galaxy s twenty twenty plus twenty and the Z flip. Which and the rest of the world they called. Zad Flip which I I don't know I like the head flip. That's a good name. I ordered one but good luck. Getting them kind of makes me mad. I don't know if Samsung provides them or these. People just know how to do it. But they're all the youtube reviewers have got. They're trying to numb waiting. I'm excited about it except that That Guy Jerry. Riggs everything got his you know about Jerry on Youtube. He destroys phones. Destroyer of phones and Yeah he took an exact knife. Just pains me. Took him to the phone like you're going to do that. Are you going to do that? What he does the tests the hardness of the screen. You know so he's he has. Samsung has had problems. As you probably know these folding funds Z. Flip is another one of them folding loans or two ways ago with folding phones fold out to make a bigger so it's like phone size. Sicker opens up. Now you gotTA tablet or and I think this is going to end up being very popular folds together to make a small little pocket square kind of phone. The you know you slip in your pocket your person then you open it up and it's normal size and that's what the Z. Flip is it's a six point seven inch from the folds in half so you could just pocket it. I think that's actually good and there's some kind of I think this is a good idea isn't kind of the hinge is Stiff enough so that you can have it all the way open but you can also have halfway open. So it's like a little smirk laptop you could put their little Barbie laptop and then there are programs can understand that. Because I guess Google's put that in android now and so if it's if it's folded a little bit it'll say oh they'll use the top for instance Google's duo which is their phone calling their video calling. You know their facetime program. If you're halfway folded they'll put the video of the person in the top half and the controls and the bottom have and you can aim at just like you would with a laptop to get the camera aimed just right. I think that's kind of cool right little Barbie Laptop. I'll put it in my Barbie funhouse. It'll be cute but don't scratch it with an exacto knife okay Jerry is famous for testing the hardness of screens and so the Samsung Galaxy. Fold was notorious for a very fragile screen. In fact reviewers broke it. The first day many reviewers did the first day and Well that wasn't so Samsung said. Well we're okay. Never mind. Forget that and they came back a couple months later they said well. We fixed the fixed it but it's still a soft because to be flexible screen like that. The screen has to bend. It's gotta be soft plastic. It's an led led screen and Which those can bend and so convened but you know it might have looked Kinkel's or cases little bubbles. Little ripples is at spending The the Moto Racer which they made they foolishly announced this two weeks ago right before Samsung and There's crinkles and say you know might have some creases crinkles normal And of course Jerry when he takes his exacto knife to the folder. The motor razors slices right through it. Because it's plastic SAMSA. Oh don't worry the Z. Flip we're going to We're GONNA make this with folding glass super thin glass it'll fold. Jerry says no no. It's not he scratches. It scratches it. He says it's still pretty soft. Okay so remind me not to use exacto knife on it. Some of the Chairman Says Yeah and Jerry. Rig Is everything has five million subscribers. Yeah they do. Find half a million views on this. There's durability tests so I guess you know he could afford to buy a fourteen hundred dollar phone. Yeah that's how much it is and destroy it break. My heart brought by Debrecen I just I you know. I'm I'm probably not going to scratch it with an exact on so jerry. It's probably not glass glass. We Jerry doesn't know. Jerry SAYS PROBABLY NOT GLASS. Glass is probably a plastic with some glass mixed in or so. I don't know I don't care I I have learned not to scratch it.

"Recover deleted files. That's a very big difference right. What you're looking for is a photo recovery coverage program that it's not that the files deleted the files damaged? You want something that will fix a damaged file well cried. Yeah now I'm not. How can I don't WanNa preach good okay because I don't want to be a preacher here but that's why you back up? It's very costly lesson. Learn I'm sorry to say all right. Well thank you so much. I'm sorry. Yeah there are you know so. There's some files that can be corrupted. That can be reconstructed. And maybe we've had this experience with your e Mail for instance. Suddenly emails all messed up. And there's a rebuild the database command and most email programs that's because the database ace's corrupted but the actual files the actual emails are still there so it can recreate that it. Just it's it's just. It's a complicated thing to do. And if for file were just like for instance if your word processor files were just a bunch of text. Well you know if you've lost the font style or or the paragraph information at least you'd get the text back right but the problem is a lot of word processor files aren't just the text Microsoft word. Heard for instance does some really weird things with the text and you can tell this there are programs out there and maybe this I don't know maybe this is worth a well. It's not gonNa work with the photography program but if you had a text file that were damaged and you wonder recover it. There are programs that call hex editors that let you are there other programs. That'll do let you just open the contents without making any substance at all about what it is as a photo. Is it a wordpress. We don't know we'll just show you. What date is on the disk? Sometimes Times that's useful and I've used heck senators to do this because you can see what the data is on the disk and certainly in a word processor you could see. The raw text is there and even even extracted by hand manually. But a photo is a little bit of a different beast. I'm sorry to say and honestly the formats that they put those in. I think you can't just rebuild the picture from b. m. p. files were like that unconfessed tiffs chiefs. Ti F- files might be might be recoverable that way but most tiffs are compressed Japex or heavily compressed and that compression means that you can't just say well here's a bit put that may that's the sky another bit another bit another bit now. Here comes the tree another another. It's not like that. It's it's it's junk. Basically basically junk sorry to say. Eighty eight eighty eight. Ask Leo speaking of photos. We're GONNA talk with our photo guy. Chris Markwort we've got a new assignment hot. He's gone onto the alphabet so we did last time we did Golden G. Now we're on H. He's looking for picture. An image that illustrates the word or concept hot hot and the way we work these. It's not a contest understand. There's no prize.

"All the time, you do a little hearing test with the phone and your preferred headphones. And from then, on, it will make sure all the sound has your particular hearing, curve built into it, which I find remarkable, and that's not an Android thing. But then they also do some weird things with the UI. The good thing about androids, you can use third party launchers? I use active launcher and it makes it exactly as I customize the heck out of it. But it allows allows you to put in SD cards. They handle hails at very well. I put my music my photos. My videos media is what I put on their audio books, and, and it's I, I agree with you. It's a nice thing to have especially because I could take it with me. Next time put in the next phone in almost always, it will be recognized because the formats the same. So I would not hesitate to recommend Samsung, if you really want an ST card, they're pricey. But I think they make the best Android phones out there. And they're the equivalent of a great flight fluffy. Biscuit. Jeff Guy Laporte the old tech guy. Yeah. I mean, there are other companies that make them but I have to say at this point Android is Google Samsung and everybody else. And use in do you think that the camera are you happy with the S ten plus camera the town or the s the Samsung camera you were with the pixel? So I, I still have a pixel three XL the only place the pixels, better is in dark dark, dark mode. And by the way Samsung has been with every update improving their phone, but in many ways the Samsung, if you get the ten plus is better because it has three lenses. It has a close up medium, and wide, very wide lens. And I actually prefer the camera on the ten. So you're not I think it's a better, you know, the, the pixel has had all sorts of trouble with memory management. The battery life on the Samsung is remarkable. I don't have any. I have no hesitation, recommending the, the galaxies to be honest with you. The note will become fairly soon. I went crazy. I bought the overpriced the top of the line terabytes to orange. Ten plus the ceramic back. Well, you know, for review purposes, we had right? You understand. You know, me so, well, rich. Purview purposes. I wish I had that in my life. Purposely. Oh man. The nicest knife, Bendel. Sometime. We'll we'll compare knives. But I rarely use it to good. I don't I just use from chop and celery. I'm not going to bring out my special knife. But I have it, but once spoils knife, you'll never go back because how it goes through an onion or how a chops agreeing, onion, or how chop something once you have that feeler sliced tomato, you can't go back. Well, you know what I did because I read board, Dane. I got a global. Wow. Wow. They're not huge. They're not horribly expensive. They're actually, but they're nice they're really sharp. And I bought a wet stone. And, you know, I mean, I and, and, you know, I, I have a nice knife, Bendel I even got a little bit. And but I just I I'm so hesitant to bring it out because it's like I have to get over that, obviously. Really beautiful. I still have my original from the seventies, my original knives, which was tough, and I have a carbon steel knife, and I it's not resistant to row. That's, that's all I buy all I will buy his okay because I want them so that. Yeah, there's so sharp. There's so exactly. Never. Nobody else can ever use them. No, there for your and I use it. You know what do you call it the, the, the stone? The what's done. It's not. No, I have a wet stuff. But also every time you use it. You stop it. Oh, you right. You. Oh, you mean like a steal? Yes.
