"Fight crime. This is one of those Donald Trump show motions where he's like, oh, you're biased against me, so I'm demanding that all the charges be thrown out. Did you see how well that worked in the Tisch James litigation when Trump and Ivanka and Don Junior said, oh, tish James hates us. She's biased against us. We can't sit for depositions. The judge mocked them. Mock them in his ruling, saying, no, you will sit for a deposition. John, the only remaining question is does Donald Trump break his son Eric's record for how many times you can invoke the Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination. Because Eric, when he lost the battle, trying to avoid sitting for a deposition and tish James civil fraud investigation, he invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination more than 500 times. I predict daddy will beat that record. Is Donald Trump senior going to give a deposition? Yes, he's been ordered to by the judge. The judge ordered him to sit for a deposition within 21 days of judge. And garan is the judge in the New York case that was just resolved last week. Gave him 21 days to sit for a deposition. Now, he can try to appeal that to the New York appellate court, which is the New York Court of Appeals is the highest court in the New York State system. I predict that they will refuse to hear it. And then he will have to sit for that deposition. So literally within the coming weeks, Donald Trump should be forced to sit for that deposition with tish James people and he will invoke the 5th all day long of that, I'm sure. But in typical Donald Trump hypocrisy form, he's the one who has said tons of times that by playing the 5th is admitted as an admission of guilt. Yet he's going to do the same exact only mobsters played the 5th. Yeah, well, how about that, Donald, you're about to plead the 5th. And let me say, the Fifth Amendment, it gets mocked. We make jokes about it. It gets, it's derided. Can I tell you, it's a really darn important fundamental constitutional right we have. Because if there was no Fifth Amendment against self incrimination, guess what? The police could be confessions out of people. I mean, you know, it's important. Now, yes, when you invoke it, what you're saying is, in essence, I committed a crime, more precisely, you're saying, my truthful testimony would tend to show the authorities I committed a crime. So, you know, it does mean something when you invoke it means you must have done some wrong. And if you were made to testify about it, then you would be incriminating yourself. But you know what? It's an important right, like every other right we have under the Fourth Amendment under the Fifth Amendment under the Sixth Amendment, right to a jury trial, right to counsel. I mean, you know, these are not punch lines. This, these amendments, John, the Bill of Rights, that's what puts up a damn wall between the government and the people. And that wall says, for example, you can't search my stuff. Absent a search warrant or more precisely probable cause, you know, you can't do these things. So we mock some of the amendments and some of the protections, but man, are they important?.

"Hotline. We're speaking with NASA astronaut Ron Garan about Richard Branson's first spaceflight yesterday. How big of a deal that was. I want to ask about your new book that's coming out. And I think it just came out today. But, Colonel, tell me about one more thing here. Elon Musk. He wants to go to Mars. He wants to colonize Mars responsibility. Not in the near future. It is. It's certainly a possibility, and I think we should as a species go to Mars and to have it wants to have a permanent human presence on Mars. But the way to get there is to first establish a transportation infrastructure between the earth and our closest neighbor, the moon. And by doing that we could then establish a permit Human settlement on the moon. And I think when we do that, that will open up the entire solar systems exploration. And it will also provide tremendous benefits for life here on Planet Earth. How many years are we away from that? You think I I think we're probably a few years where a few years away from going back to the, uh And this time we're going and we're going to go back to stay. We're not. We're not going there. Um, like we did in the sixties and seventies. Um, just for very brief periods of time. We're going to go there with the intention to stay. We're going to see the first woman set foot on the moon in the next few years. But having you know, having that permanent human presence on the moon No, I would say if we really it things go well, it could be in the next 10 years. Wow. Ron Garan is a NASA astronaut. And he has a new book out today called Floating in Darkness. A Journey of evolution. Tell us about the book Colonel. Yeah, I'm really excited about it. I started writing in 1981. It's been a long time coming the labor of love bearing of the soul if you will, but it should be fun. Great. It's all about dogfights and and space flights and spacewalks and C four floor living and living on solve the ocean. But it all serves as an allegory for the evolution of society. Um, not only where we've been, but where we need to go and the goal of the book and why am radio the messages that I want to get up to the World is a path to overcome our current divisiveness of polarization and to get on a path towards the future that we don't want to be a part of to be able to solve all these challenges and problems that in front of us in a in a collaborative way and the cooperative way it's hopefully I wrote it to be a unified book to bring people together. Floating in darkness dot com is where people can pick up a copy of this book out today from NASA astronaut Ron Garan are one more thing before. Let's go. Colonel, are you Maybe this personal question. I don't know. Are you a believer in God? Would it be hard Not to be once you've seen things you've seen up there in space. Is that play a part in this new book at all? Well, yeah, I guess is the same as the atheists in foxholes. I don't know if this atheist or not, but, um you know, when I saw the planet from from the vantage point of space, I was filled with just an incredible sense of gratitude. Gratitude for the opportunity to see the planet from my vantage point. And gratitude for the planet that we've been given. And I think, um, I think whatever faith I had to know, whatever beliefs I had when I launched were or amplified and grew and expanded and everything else So, yeah, I think it was a very emotional experience. It was a very spiritual experience. Um and It's one that I wanted to share with everybody. So I go very deep in the place of the book is very deeply spiritual in some cases, but it's not. It's in a It's in a way that hopefully is entertaining. Sure. Well, thank you for your service, Mr Garin and thank you for your time today. Please go pick up the book floating in darkness. A journey of evolution. The website is floating.

You're end, for example, that one and Hendricks County tomorrow morning that's actually in person. These are all Berrien County. So American is so Bob. Do let Bob so doing it via Zoom. Are you still wearing the masks and stuff in the courtroom? Um, depending on which one depends on where you are with local rules are we've got some incredible segments coming up. Guy. Relford. What do we call it? Kyle gunned a fund A close cause Monday. Gun day even know the name of our own segment Gun day Monday. Monday. Gundy. There you go Sunday Gun day. Uh, he is coming from the papa song. Yeah, That's right. That's just thinking the exact same thing. No, I wasn't background checks for gun purchases or skyrocketing here in Indy. What does that tell you? They're on record pace will discuss that. With the gun guy later, we'll talk to Rick Snyder, president of the F O P. Lodge, 86 to talk about this in the City County Council vote tonight to pass hogs its crime prevention plan. Also Abdul. Everyone is you gotta want to tune in at 5. 30 Man. We've got this. NASA astronaut Ron Garan calling in. He's a just, He's a former NASA astronaut. S 16 fighter pilot tens of millions of miles in space simply, you know, six months in space. We're gonna talk about Richard Branson's thing that he did over the weekend, his his friends growing up in outer space. It was in space for six minutes, right? Well, this guy quite frankly more interested in in current here and talking to him about his life, he's got a new book out. We'll get to that. And by the way, it's still cheaper to technically fly business class from Indianapolis to Europe than it is to get on the private space shuttle. Okay, So, um, mentioned that Rick Snyder's coming on later. Indies latest weekend violence. The stats are in Abdul 17 people shot Seven stabbed. Two murdered or killed. That's 24 shots slashed, stabbed with an average of one every three hours just over the weekend, so Uh, tonight. Thank God. The city County Council will come together and vote on the, uh, smoking legislation and state parks. Oh, wait a minute. Thank God. We've already voted on that, right? Yeah, they're also they're going to vote tonight on the the mayor's anti crime proposal. Funding and also, uh, The the building sustainability proposal. I believe they're going to vote on. That, too. Was basically has been distract their energy use. If they don't do what they have to pay a fine, So okay, so Proposal. 1 82. That was the main thing. We're talking about the $3 million for the crime prevention plan that was kind of put on the table by Hogsett. 40 days ago in two dozen murders ago. Yes, right. So they're finally getting around to to voting on getting that out there and passed. Why did they wait so long? Because, um, because it's an ordinance and because its appropriation of funding the council has to sign off funding to prove it now why they didn't have an emergency meeting and say, Hey, we're gonna have emergency meeting to get this funding to get it approved and get it out. There would be one thing exactly why they waited for so long. Um, be honest with you. I have no idea And it just adds to the perception that there is no urgency over at 200 East Washington. To get this problem addressed and solved. What? Okay, so $3 million. What's it going to do? Really? I mean, I guess every little bit helps 1.5 million ghosts. I m p d. The rest goes for like mental health and domestic violence. How much have we spent on crime prevention? Since 2016. I want to say almost $70 million. Okay, Wow. Since 2016 and the crime rate the the violence, the homicides continue. Yes, there's only one year that homicides actually went down. But that was down by like five or six and then was immediately back up again. And even without the mass shootings that we've had Want to say our murder rate is still ahead of where it was last year at this time. So if this is from your website in the politics dot org, um The you know what's the city going to do to get its murder rate under control? While this $3 million crime prevention plan, right, But the F O P has something so that that's that's on down the road, even though I mean Even though they're going to pass this tonight. That those money those funds are going to get out there right away to take to the end of the year to start implementing some of this, Yeah, that money won't get there until the end of the year. And also when I looked at how much the city has spent over the past six years, and some change Always gonna wonder, uh, with all the different groups that the money goes to Where is the Where is the accountability? The the results like, Okay, I'm just asking. I'm not asking somebody to prove a negative, like okay, Well, somebody proves somebody didn't get shot because of you. I mean that That's kind of ridiculous, but Give. Give me something. Give! Give me give me some results. You give me some data. Give me give me something to show that. Hey, the $17 million that we spent was worth it. Have you seen any evidence? Nothing. It was nothing. Nothing, nothing but very, very little. Yet. This is gonna be my by my project. When I get back from Florida here is here is my thing. And here's why I like Rick Snyder from the F O. P is that He's very vocal on social media and very outspoken about the crime increase in central Indian the homicides, But he doesn't just pound his chest. He's got solutions, right, Scott. I mean, there's four things that Could be done right away. And we'll talk to Rick Snyder later about this, um, that they could do today, As a matter of fact, right And you write about this in any politics dot and one of which is which I agree with wholeheartedly. Uh, it's our bail matrix that we use nowadays. To determine who is going to be released, and it won't be released. And when they one of the things that Rick and the.

"If you can see my youtube channel And if you're watching it look like it was done last week because it's so pregnant but it was done probably four or five years ago and you know if i if you've been following it's always this flight has always been you know eight eight months out a year out you know. It's been that way since probably two thousand and ten or before and so Yeah he was really excited about The flight and And when it would mean and the possibility that it could open up space for many many more people right now. It's really very wealthy. People that can afford pain equipment. A million dollars for feathers right. But you know where the economy is scale with Increased reusability Technical advancements you know these are the baby steps that can bring that price down to something more affordable and You know hopefully the more people that apart from that perspective the better off the road or going to be on the surface now in a very competitive billionaires boy club jeff bezos. He loaned busk obviously not to stoked. You know they presented well. They were in attendance in the new mexico desert And they took to social media to congratulate to serve richard branson but when you talk about those economies of scale that's what they're all working toward right because i think the hope is that she said to take it from two hundred fifty to five hundred thousand dollars on down to a bit of stretch for me. I work in radio after all but to a more reasonable price of forty thousand dollars. Do you think we'll see that in the not too distant future that and i think it will keep coming down Your it's a printer to make clear. There is a big difference between what on musk is doing. and what. jeff. Us and richard branson are doing. So jeff bezos. Richard are doing suburb over space tourism. Right now Musk is doing orbital flight and The difference is enormous. You know yesterday. Richard band flew To thirty five hundred miles per hour he did that. And eight seconds going straight up which is pretty impressive Thirty five hundred miles per hour is pretty fast but to get to overdose speech you have to go to seventeen thousand five hundred miles. An hour just had around that. That's five miles a second. So i think of some sort of think of something. That's five miles away from the right now in. Imagine getting in a second. That's how fast you have to go to orbit to be more of it. And that's that's what on my musk's spacex Which is which is a totally different thing. That is absolutely incredible now. What about the conditioning. That is necessary. I think to be able to survive those forces. I mean it seems to me. There might be some physical And safety considerations for the erstwhile Space tourist mean those versus the you know in most eight seconds of accelerating from not you know on three hundred miles an hour. That thirty five hundred miles an hour and eight seconds puts g for on your body So you know it makes it a little bit hard breathes for those eight seconds And you know you're being pushed back in your seat and you go from being pushed back in your seat like that To being weightless instantly when may engine shuts down. And now you're listening you're floating And then there's going to be a little bit of g force when we come back to It's it's nothing that's in the event particular flight. I don't think it's anything..

We don't think twice about getting on an airliner and flying anywhere in the world and i think We could be at the dawn of a new era where space travel becomes commonplace as air travel and that not only do it or the moon or beyond but also from point a. to point b. on the and it could be the next decade or two. Were you know take take off from new york to tokyo on a spacecraft leaves the atmosphere And gets a you know a fraction at the time. What is it like leaving the atmosphere. Well it's a.

"The budget is in good shape. Well compare and contrast because rankin makes the exact opposite case. It's an awful lot of money. Said senator bob franken of carbondale and covers the same three years when refunds are projected noting. He did that. Local governments are also receiving billions in stimulus. So why should we find. Clever ways to defeat taber when in fact we have all the federal money there until june he went on to say we did not expect this money to even exist. Obviously we were planning a budget without it. So why do we all of a sudden so desperately need it as possible. Attempt to work around. Taber of course would be the latest in a series of recent democratic efforts to aggressively counteract state tax law earlier this year. They approve that five point. Four billion dollars transportation funding scheme on the back of the very fee based strategy. They could employ to lower refunds. They passed the temporary. Two hundred million dollar property tax cut so thwarts a conservative groups. Much bigger proposed property tax cut and in the last two years. They passed laws to eliminate some tax credits. That's one thing taber still. Let's lawmakers handle by the way this in an effort to shift a few hundred million dollars from wealthier interest to needier one. So once again the all out assault on taber continues and given the fact that the democrats kinda run the table and run the show. Would it surprise you any that. When it comes to those projected billions in tax refunds. We are supposed to receive in twenty twenty three that statehouse..

"Hike to be approved by voters just a brief reminder which means city councils county commissioners and the state legislature cannot alone rewrite tax codes but the coming fight over refunds is about much more than that denver democratic senator. Chris hansen also a member of the joint budget. Committee said the problem is that people think taber is about getting to vote on taxes. Well he said it's also about twelve other things including giving taxpayer refunds at the state's growth and tax generated revenue outpaces the growth of population plus inflation. Now because colorado's economy has really. I mean all things considered bounce back rather robustly and rather quickly from a pretty profound early pandemic dip lawmakers and spring of two thousand and twenty they cut about three billion from the general fund. That's three times more than during the great recession well. The state is projected to reach the refund cap for the next three years. So you have That bevy of legislative analysts they estimate almost two billion dollars in refunds. Which would be largely spread over three checks to individual tax payers around a whopping fifty bucks a piece or more will hand something for most into the low. Hundreds for wealthier earners trigger a small income tax. cut pretty much across the board. The governor's budget staff is more optimistic projecting closer to three billion dollars in refunds. It's too late. Democratic lawmakers say to try to capture this year's refund money kevin for them but they could get the bulk of what's predict dejected. In the next two years wanted to say the bulk of what's protected in the next two years as they continue to hammer and chip away at taber. Now you may or may not agree with assessment made by alex birsh s the denver post who writes taber hamstrings governments in many ways but crucially it does not prevent lawmakers from creating new quote enterprises qlo-quote funded by fees. Charge tacked onto a purchase of gas or the renewal of license for example attacks by any other name right. Enterprise fees take from wallets the same as taxes too but the money they bring in doesn't count against the refund cap if democrats create enterprises for more fees. Well sure stands to reason. They can bring the same or more revenue. While lowering refund obligations handsome. Went on to say and we got a list of options in that category. I'm sure they do. The most tenured budget official legislature. That's republican senator. Bob rankin carbondale. He laughed when he was asked by. Mr brunetta about the democrats plans he said. Of course they wanna keep the money he argued. it would violate tabor's spirit and is poor economic policy. All that refund money said is better off in people's pockets when you agree not the legislatures. Because they'll only keep extending their hand for more. There seems to be never enough money to go around now. Democrats think three point. eight billion. The status receiving from the federal american rescue plan act won't solve long-term funding problems and thus there is no reason to get comfy. Now they point two billion dollar infrastructure backlogs and underfunding of education is problems that will outlive the stimulus. Money hansen who by the way argues that nearly thirty years of taber restrictions have created backlogs. So great that a rising state economy and federal stimulus. Money aren't enough to meet the state spending needs.

And second let's not get it twisted here. I'm a huge fan of infrastructure. But why are they stealing our tax refunds to fund infrastructure projects.

Yeah, almost everyone I know that has been the space has come back, uh, transformed transformer the little, but they they understand where and but you know, there's other people where, you know if you ask, some has has, uh, your experience in space have a transformative effect will say no. But then when I explained experiences explain why these things that have changed in there? Yeah, yeah. But so yeah, I don't know about how you could have that experience a lot of come back with a greater appreciation for fellow humans with fellow life forms on the planet and the planet and my life support systems of the planet. But we need to cherish and take care of. Wow, Ron. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you for your insight into having been in space. He's Ron Garan, astronaut and author floating in darkness. A journey of evolution. Why you can you can order it on Amazon right now learn even more, Ron. Best of luck to you. And thank you. Good morning. And, uh, that's thanks for having me. I appreciate it. Wow, That's interesting, right? I talked to an astronaut and well in the concept that you know you It becomes transformative. It becomes life changing when you see the earth, How can it not? How can you not beach? It's like you've got to changed is the line. Something moves? Yeah, last you the mental, the spiritual They would absolutely wow. Um, we know that Some sort of old normal school's gonna be back. Oh, my God. I get a month for some people like August they start going back. What will school looked like in Chicago were still giving a They were trying to work out the details, But we're learning more and more about it. We'll share it with you coming up. Next on 8 19 wls..

Rebooting AI: What's Missing and What's Next With Gary Marcus
"I am on the line with Gary. Marcus Gary is the CEO and founder at robust dot ai I also the a CEO and founder of the machine learning startup geometric intelligence which was acquired by Uber in two thousand sixteen. Gary is the author of five books including putting his latest rebooting ai which will be available on the day. This podcast is published Gary. Welcome to this week she learning and at thanks for having me I'm really excited to jump in and chat with you about this book. I had a chance to dig into it and awesome awesome booklets. Let's just jump in before we really dive into talking about the book. I'd love to explore a little bit about your background. You spent quite a bit of your career at and why you as a professor of psychology and neuroscience you tell us a little bit about your background and the perspective that this creates for you so I'm trained primarily as a cognitive scientists my research for many years and my PhD with St Thinker was all about how children learn language and and how children's start to understand the world so developmental cognitive scientist by training and at the same time I've been interested in is since I was about eight years old when I learned about programming computers and in the last seven years or so I've focused almost exclusively on answering the question what can cognitive science bring to. Ai I so a is currently dominated by certain statistical approaches that from my perspective as a cognitive scientist someone who studies how humans work seem a little weird to me so I don't think of children as giant data machines but the way that they I is kind of rolling right now. It's all about big data and I've been trying to see what I can contribute the two from the perspective of cognitive science so when you were when you create a geometric intelligence. Was that a company that really commercialized live cognitive science based approach or was there a statistical approach involved in your work their geometric intelligence which was my first company was inspired in some ways by cognitive science. It wasn't slavish to it. So there's always this tension of you know if you building airplanes you don't want to fly exactly like birds it 'cause that wouldn't make any sense who wants to flap their wings so many times a minute but you also want to understand something about the dynamics of flight in in my last company and also in this company were trying to take some lessons from biology in particular from how humans think and apply those to a problem so we're not in last company was not trying to be narrow scientifically perfectly accurate. We're not trying to be faithful to the brain. We're trying to take inspiration from the brain. The last company the broad problem that it was trying to address how do you learn from small amounts of data and that question itself in some ways comes from cognitive science. I think machine learning earning is catching up to it now in the last couple of years but it's always been clear from cognitive science especially from the field of language acquisition that learning from small data's the name of the game children can generalize from tiny amounts of examples. My dissertation was about how children learn the addy rule for forming the past tense which take sometimes use incorrectly they'll say goad or went to things like that. They learned that from a small amount of data sometimes they make mistakes over apply it but they don't have the gigabytes of data the way to save the GP tee system does now to the last company was really focused on one particular way a of solving this small data problem at our. I think most impressive results were we were beating deep learning in terms of data efficiency so we could learn things things with half as much data without having specific briars about the nature of the things. We're learning so we take 'em nist which is a benchmark. Probably a lot of your audience knows recognizing characters we could do amnesty have as much data without having to build in anything about the nature of letters or anything like that so we were working towards a general way of doing supervised learning. Maybe some other things using less data and we were inspired there by humans. We weren't necessarily doing it exactly the way humans do but I think the core intellectual property is something that is being Garan I developed and I sort of set a direction that was based on some things that made sense to me from a cognitive science perspective and Tuban been brilliant mathematician figured out how to apply it and so I think a lot of our listeners when they hear the idea of creating a unlimited data. We'll think about things like one shot. Learning zero shot learning but sounds like your approach was very different from these or was it. I mean there's some into relations and I can't say too much because Uber owns the IP and there's NDA's okay kind of stuff but I would say it. Zero shot learning in one shot learning first of all our names of problems. They're not names of techniques and people use different kinds of techniques to do them. They're often I think narrowly construed so there are lots of problems in the world where you have some data. It's not the zero data but you just don't have that much. It's something I often like to talk about is what my daughter did when she climbed through a chair so we were sitting in a whole foods about a year ago she was about four and a half years old or four years old at the time we sat in a chair that had a back in the gap between the back and the base of the chair if you can kind of visualize that and and she'd never seen the TV program the dukes of Hazzard with climb through the windows so she didn't have any data from like a model of doing wacky things sticking their bodies through an aperture inside of there so this was not a big data problem or at least there wasn't a lot of directly relevant big data. She had data about how her body worked the size of her body and she probably explored other apertures before she did what a lot of people might call at abstractly unsupervised supervised learning but he didn't use any of the techniques that we would call unsupervised learning so it was unsupervised in the sense that she didn't have training example saying this is the right you know. Torque to apply to your torso in order to spin through chair right in the way a reinforcement learning robot might try it a million sometimes and get reinforcement stuck this way it didn't get stuck that way and so forth she just did it in the space of like a minute and then the second time that she did. I I asked her to reenact it and I took pictures the second time I wish I had taken pictures the first time or taken video the second but anyway you look you look at this sequence of pictures that I took and she actually got stuck doc at one point and then she figured out how to get unstuck and so there was problem solving process there and it was also kind of leveraging modest amounts of data. She had no direct data on this problem except what she got from trying herself in that moment and then she had a bunch of background data from other kinds of problems that she had solved and she knew enough committee not consciously but unconsciously about physics and our body moved and so forth that you can integrate all of that so that doesn't fall into the paradigm of zero shot learning although you could sort sort of call it a zero shot problem but it's not like the things that people do in literature and it doesn't fall into the one shot learning and it doesn't really fit with how people think about unsupervised learning where they take take clusters of things or predict the next frames in the video. It's not really like any of those problems and yet it's kind of what little kids like. My children do all the time. They say here's some challenge that I have never confronted before. I'm going to figure it out. That's like eighty percent probably exaggerated but it's a large fraction of what my kids do is. They set new challenges right now. My son's a little older he's six and a half my daughter's five now. They like play Games all day long and they don't all play existing games. They play games that they invent until like well. Let's pretend you can't fly anymore because you broke your wing or whatever they're constantly making up assumptions and then doing problem salving relative to those reference points and that's just completely far away from what people are doing and they. I now part of the reason the Ernie Davis and I wrote this book rebooting. I I like reorient. The feel and reboot is like start over so we're doing great on all the supervised learning stuff where we have a ton of data ton of labeled data but but the reality is that's not really what the real world is like and it's certainly not like what children do as they come to understand the world and there's a gap right now between I I think memorizing doing something a little bit better than memorization and understanding so deep learning is like a better way of doing memorization you can Tripoli between examples. You've seen gene before but it's not really about comprehension. It's not really about building a model of chairs apertures and bodies and understanding how those interrelate into what earning an is trying to do is to get the field to look in different direction. That's more about comprehension and understanding and so forth did my going back to your question for second me did my last company. We do all of that. No I mean we were small startup. We were when we thought we were fifteen. People we at one very specific way of solving a supervised learning problem with less data. There's a lot that goes into human approach to less data another thing that goes into it that we didn't work on last compete at all is in eight nece so Chomsky's arguments which I think are correct is that we start with something that constrains how we learn language we don't. We're not open to any possible. I was reborn knowing certain things about language. I differ from him a little bit about what those things are but I would say we're probably born knowing that you can see candy. Symbols in order to express things is going in the right word or is it something you know as about the same conscious but I'll tell you about an experiment that I did which is probably not my best known result in psychology literature. I one of the two I taught seven kids in artificial language and I didn't tell them the rules as for the language it is give them examples two minutes and that

They will put together as of November last year in in Czech Republic to, to familiarize themselves with each other. Granted they are from, from enclosures in, in Europe. But you know, there's proof they, they re wild very well. And this is going to be a process over time. It's not going to happen overnight, and the are some cases way.

When the rises tomorrow morning with it's going to be transition. They should we've brought a lot of food from what they used to. And we'll slowly transition them onto natural browse that we have vegetation, we have here, and then in a couple of months, probably put them into lodging closures of about one hectare, and then they go into one hundred tests, and then into actually at three thousand hectares sanctuary for for the next year or two.
