I'll Peanut Jam Your Brain
"Okay so earlier. I did this thing. That probably sounded weird to you. Emily your sentence. It didn't make any sense but you know another day. Another dollar alright. Okay well well so when someone does something unexpected like that when they're talking to you or get this even when you're reading something that doesn't follow the standard conventions of the language. Something kind of cool happens in your brain l. So they can actually measure this right so when we studied brain one of the ways that we can study. Brain activity is by measuring electrical current. That is flowing through your cortex rates so the surface of your brain for the cells to talk to each other. They released electrical current. This is sarah phillips our expert i mentioned earlier. I am a rising fourth year. Phd student in the linguistics department at new york university and also a member of the neuro linguistic slab very cool. She studies bilingualism and code switching which we will touch on in a future episode because it is objectively but for today. She's helping me out as explain. These things called n. Four hundred and p six hundred. He's are measurable responses. That happen your brain as you process language okay so little electrical signals that your brain is always giving off right but these are different from your normal brain buzzing. That would happen. If you're listening to like a quote normal sentence got it basically these phenomena are your brain saying like hey hold up something weird happening here okay so like when i peanut jam your brain that an example of one that can spark some. You know chemistry for you. Oh yeah yeah. I felt wrong and a lot of ways so as i peanut. Jam your brain. That's a good one anyways. Yes in nineteen eighty two psychologists. Marta kunas and steven hilliard published a paper showing that among these electrical signals. There was this big response about four hundred milliseconds person. Reading a sentence came across a word that was like semantic league confusing or the meaning was wrong. Okay so it's like a linguistic oddball sentences thrown your way your brain will produce a end. Four hundred response four hundred milliseconds after you heard peanut gem in that benefits. I peanut jam. Your brain your brain was like whoa. What's that doesn't make any sense. Exactly yeah and your brain. Does this kwong in less than half a second. Which is wild. So sir philip's art linguist from earlier explained. It happens in other scenarios like garden path sentences. So you start to hear a sentence and you think you know what's going to happen next but then something goes wrong okay and so when something goes wrong your brain has to go wait what. I don't think i interpreted this how it was supposed to be. I've got a restart which sarah says can happen with the sentence as simple as he spread the warm bread with socks yummy. This is fun. I like this okay. So how does this compare to. The p six hundred you were mentioning earlier is different than and four hundred the big differences just that they go in opposite directions and they happen at different points so when she says opposite directions. She's talking about how they kind of show up on these science graphs. You've them sure one one shows up in the positive and the other shows up as negative and and okay but for me the easiest thing to hang onto is that they happen at different times so the four hundred happens four hundred milliseconds after the wuxi. The p six hundred. The brain gives off slightly later. That response peaks roughly six hundred milliseconds after the woopsie. That's really it and we're trying to understand when we see this type of fact. What could this affect represent. What is this affect characterizing. What's happening in the brain in. Initially researchers thought that the answers to these questions was that the end four hundred was happening because of semantic errors so involving the meaning of words right and that the p six hundred was showing up because of grammatical errors which not to brag. But i make all this and we've met you for that. Yeah yeah sure okay but but it turns out as research into all this has gone on these effects might be more generalized kind of than researchers previously thought it might just have to do with how your brain processes complex language and this just shows that when we think about language and how we process language. They're actually a lot of steps involved. Starting from recognizing that the sound that you hear is a sound of the language that you speak and how those sounds then combined to form some parts of words.

What Music Can I Use For Live Streaming
"Have you ever wondered what music you can use for live streaming just because the music is available. Can you use it for live streaming on this episode gemini or going to answer the question. What music can i use for livestreaming including providing you with some of the free end he'd solutions so gem you know i'm going to go and just ask like just the big elephant in the room here People you know they. They want to use musical livestreaming. Can they just use like apple music or spotify or something they haven't licensed to. I'm not gonna say a flat out. No i'm going to say it really depends and what i mean by that. Is you know we can live stream to a lot of places right churches to live streams. you know there's events that do livestream on private platforms like in that was reached the purchased or purchase stream yard as an example. So there's a lot of these event closed-loop software type platforms where you're able to livestream to as when it's a case like that i would say yes. You can but also consider where is that content going to be seen after the fact because that's when sometimes of an artist finds out you're using their music for commercial gain. They may come after you so you have to be careful about that. When it comes to the social media platform you got to be extremely careful because they will take down. They will warn you like. Hey you're playing this music. You don't have a right to and even if you do you've gotta make sure because maybe your actual band and you're wanting to do a livestream playing your own music. You got to be extremely careful about making sure that you are following the rules and regulations because otherwise you're going to have a lot of headaches when it comes to putting music out there so as a we'll say probably the majority of people that are live streaming out there. Sure we all wanna have you wanna call it. The pattern interrupted one. A have music to get things going. You know maybe even your countdown timer has music going along with it. Or maybe you have an intro video sizzle reel. that's got music going to it. Well you can. But there's some specific places you want to go to get that music so that you don't get your stuffed Pull down and so christian. Why don't you will. I like to think Hear what you think about this and maybe let's get into some of these places that they can go to so yeah. This is a such an interesting topic you know and i realized people wanna make their livestreams much more engaging for example. If i'm you know doing a fitness training at home i wanna have music that people know but at the same time Play can't put a speaker next to my microphone. I can't put my apple music or spotify platform on and stream music from there as well you know and you know people need to be. You need to be really careful with the music. You choose to use because it it also doesn't like the same thing holds true for example live streaming if i'm going to have a musician perform and that musician for example is say they're just performing their own music. They don't necessarily have the rights to perform their music because they don't for the most part they don't own their music you know and i can't speak to like every artist but they have a contract. They've contract with universal music group for example and that i actually think you know jim i dunno if you pay attention to this bill like most of the time musicians only go and they perform at very specific events perform it like the grammies the oscars you know. They're performing at a concert. They're doing something for example four to promote the album but outside of that you don't find them for example you're not going on social media singing their music. They're not playing their music on social media. they're not putting on classes using their music and i think the big thing comes down to because they don't own it. I assume that's why that's happening. You know why that whites very controlled and so you know as far as Picking music for livestreaming. I mean it's it's definitely you're gonna wanna make sure that you've read up on Ascott and bmi. Because that's going to be really what dictates what you can and can't use for music for livestreams so it doesn't matter like oh you know it doesn't and also doesn't matter how big or small the event is right. I mean if like if it's a school play for example still doesn't matter you know you need to be using music that you have legally paid four. Yeah because you know because think of as an example right you sometimes have You know these these Schools maybe they're doing like a play like frozen and they wanna play the the frozen music. Well disney's not gonna like that and they will take it down. Yeah i mean doesn't even does or does he so. Churches run into this often when they want to stream like when they wanna play a movie. They wanted to a movie for their congregation for example. Same exactly it doesn't matter that you're a church. They're not gonna look ends they. Oh well you know what. You're a church We're going to like we're gonna go easy on you. It doesn't matter you still have to follow the rules. It doesn't matter as well if your business doesn't make any money that's a whole nother thing if you don't make any money but you're trying to use the free you're trying to use someone else's music if you are in the business of trying to make money and even you're not making money you still have to pay for that license so you know so what we've done is we've come up with Quite a number twenty one free and paid solutions. And we're going to do. Here's we're not going to go through all twenty one of these. What we're gonna do is we're going to pick out. Maybe a five to seven of our favorite ones and will put the rest of these in the description of the podcast And the reason we want to do this because well for the most part you know we mention hey you should go check out a sound stripe for example. Well they all pretty much. Do the same thing you pay a licensing fee and you get access to certain libraries of music. It's pretty much the way it works. And there's different some different features to some of these. Some of them are some of them have like really vast library. Some of them you know have just very select music. So we're gonna talk through there. So so jim what i want to do. Is i'm gonna start just the first couple here and you know if i'm going to pick music for livestreaming a the first place i would start would be to look at youtube library or your facebook sound collection now. These are free resources provided by youtube and facebook for you to be able to go in fine music that you can legally use now the key thing to keep in mind here. These are free options so your options are going to be limited. You know they're going to be good for background. Music or intro videos. Maybe some altro videos. If i'm going to be doing for example fitness and i want something that's like high beats per minute and once that people already know probably not gonna find it there but it'll be good for you know the standard thing that people would use for livestream
"Midnight Train to Georgia' songwriter Jim Weatherly dies
"I've been listening to your program for the last couple of days. I don't know if i miss this one. Johnny bolts best. Quarterbacks passed away on wednesday. jim weather You listen i. I i i. I saw that yesterday or last night. And i'm glad you brought it up because i never. I didn't know jim and was too young when he was starring it out at ole miss on pre national championship When he was the quarterback. If you do you remember that is correct But that was nineteen hundred nineteen sixty two right but would you want to know more about his music career than i do about his football career. He was one of the net epic songwriters of that era. He wrote One of the most famous songs in the seventies of midnight train to georgia for gladys knight. He wrote Neither one of us. And i think the best that's That's rolling stone. Had a big article on him and the latest things happen. Yeah they named Midnight train to georgia one of the five hundred best phones. It is it's in fact i. I heard i was thinking about jim this morning and i played that and it is just you know he was. He recorded his own music. Well he had he had a hit as well. I'm i'm very familiar with his music. And i'm so glad you mentioned that because this is part of what we do that sometimes we we. We really don't pay enough attention to older. Exactly art archie archie manning Said that jim weatherly was his hero. Growing goodness i know he would he would go to. The delta gem had a band in high school. okay and jim weatherly and he traveled of course through the little thousand mississippi and archie went to a concert or at Rosedale mississippi back in the well that had to be in the late fifties right and he said that he had that elvis. Look you know jet black hair. Handsome guy and he was mesmerized. Usually get archie on to talk about a. I'm i'm glad you said that because that's my fault. I knew i knew he had passed away. And i should have done a better job of but it's rare. I've always wondered about him. Because i knew he was. I knew he was a songwriter. And i and i. I would air of teenage to to growing up so i mean i knew that music very well but i i knew very little about his his football career because usually you run these guys never have. I think he spent a lotta time in nashville and hollywood. So i never saw
Should You Rent Live Streaming Gear?
"On this episode. You will learn why you should consider renting livestreaming gear before you make that final purchase decision. So gem let's talk about renting livestreaming gear. Yeah i think a lot of times. We make the assumption that we have to buy this stuff. But if you're in business especially if you're a business owner you're in the business of live streaming. You actually have some options that the the hobbyist may be necessarily doesn't and that is you can lease equipment. You can rent equipment for a short period of time. I mean i have a friend that runs a video production company. He doesn't own any of his cameras. He goes and rents them whenever he gets a job for a client. Because one thing that happens with gear is this stuff gets upgraded all the time and so sometimes trying to keep up with the latest and the greatest goes into one of your favorite phrases. Yes and it's a gas gear acquisition syndrome and basically. It's the fact that you know when we buy a piece of equipment we then wanna keep buying because we see what other people have or what kind of they're using for their live streaming setup. Now to your point jim. I mean when you buy equipment you know. It's it's an asset appreciable asset. So it's like buying a car. For example you buy it and then it's gonna depreciate over time so for example if you bought that thousand dollar camera over time you know it's going to pretty much worthless it's going to be you've got time working against it and you also have the technology as well because technology changes extremely rapidly. You know it changes so quickly that that you know to the point where you buy something in like maybe in a month it's outdated because every about every year there's always something new coming out so this might be. You know a good reason why you should rent livestreaming gear so jim. Let's talk about just the various parts about renting equipment. I mean as you know. Yes people can go out and they can you know if they have. I think keating is like let's start with budget. I mean we rent. Why should somebody rent gear. I mean they definitely show up budget right. That's part of it absolutely. And i think and so. That's where renting right gives you that ability to you know it's like it's like a car taking a test drive you can try before you buy. I mean We're going to share some links a little bit later. Some of these places. You could rent Stuff for as little as three days. So you know be focused that you're going to actually you know you know 'cause how many times do we buy a new piece of equipment and then it sits there for a little bit before we start using it and so this kind of makes you think. Hey i if i if i'm serious about using this piece a year i'm actually going to you know. Take it out use it. Make sure it's it's doing what i think it can do or wanted to do. And so sometimes you're gonna find out that that's not what it is advertised that it would do isn't always what ends up being the case and it doesn't do what you were hoping for a one great example of this you know their cameras so when you're running a livestream you may want to use. Will you want to have a camera and a lot of people to start with the first option the webcam sorry the the built in webcam. And then when they're ready they're like hey i want another will just having. The webcam is not the only piece of equipment you need when you have for example if you're using a built in webcam you need a webcam you need lighting for example to then make that webcam look good and you know those webcams they can only do. So much so might be choppy because it's basically contingent on your computer so for example. If that's not good enough in your okay. I won't improve that. Well then i'm going to go to a webcam and actual external webcam extra webcams limitations. And then you go up another notch. If you're like hey want to. I want to be able to switch different things for example different cameras or i want to have different angles will a webcam can only do so much. Then you need to move into. Dsl are mirrorless camera and those then for example require more equipment to actually run the equipment. So it's it's a slippery slope once you start using different types of equipment. They're always going to be additional costs for example if you buy diesel our camera. Hey it's oh. I can just go buy one off the shelf. But here's the thing. It's not just about buying off the shelf. You then have to buy the right lens. Some of them include lenses which is great. But hey then we'll hey. How do i put this into my computer and that gets us into unietd capture card so as you can see it can quickly spiral out of control and so this is a really really really good reason why people need to consider renting livestreaming gear There's so much out there. And depending on what. Your setup is what your budget is you can easily go and drop immune if you wanted to buy just a basic camera. Six hundred dollars a camera. Two hundred dollars on a capture card to be able to plug the camera into your computer. So we're eight hundred dollars. Roughly right there Let's see what else you need. They need probably an audio interface or microphone. Sorry audio interface or mixer. So that's what one hundred one hundred fifty dollars till like five or six hundred dollars. That's really more bare minimum. So i think we're what that's probably around fifteen hundred sixteen hundred dollars right there and then. Hey i want improve my audio. I can go by mike for one hundred dollars but you know again then. I have to have a by the mike. Well then i have to have the armed. Attach it while the arm is another hundred. So you know you're at what That's that's over two thousand dollars right there. And that doesn't include the software so easily you've reached twenty five hundred three thousand dollars so some of the benefits obviously like to renting this gears. That will if you don't have the cash then. Maybe you rent a piece of equipment that you need. You know that you need and use it temporarily and you use it to film all of your videos at once and then you return the equipment versus. I dropped three thousand dollars. And then i have to actually spend the time learning it in also making sure that it works how i needed to work. You know. there's a whole process at it right job. Oh absolutely and then the other thing you may start to find an and it was funny. I was A guy guys said this the other day it's like if you have one dollar lighting and thousand dollar camera you've basic aren't going to have a one dollar camera because you didn't take into consideration the other stuff that you need to make that camera work right. You know. I mean sometimes like we have people that wanna have green screens. And they don't have the lighting and so they're backdrop actually looks worse than if they just had a plane wall behind them. And so you know reading this stuff can really give you a feel for like. Is this really. What's going to move the needle for me. I mean you know. We've always talked about getting better one percent of the time so this is a big deal when you kind of as you're when you when you've got gas you really gotta sometimes take a step back and really say. Is this really going to help my business. What's the plan behind it. And so you know and and and you may find that your space that you're live streaming from isn't really a set up in a way to properly use that gear right if you've got you know like i'm bringing in a second camera but now when you look at the lighting it's like oh my backdrop looks horrible. My walls not you know so maybe you want to improve the status of your studio before you go one by year but then even renting the gear will let you say oh. This isn't going to work quite like. I thought you know. Cut your. it really is a way to kind of. Cut your losses temporarily until you're ready to take that next step and there are a couple of different approaches. You can take this as i mentioned earlier. If you're you know if you're a type a person you're a planner and you've got everything ready like you know for example what your videos are going to film are and you've got them scripted out. It would make sense if you don't have all the equipment go and go to a rental place and we'll share some of those here and few minutes but go to a place that you can rent equipment from and tell them. Hey you know what this is. What i'm looking to do for the most part. They're going to know their stuff inside now and they're going to be able to also sort of give you a bit of a consultation they're gonna be able to recommend what might pair well
You are not the lowest common denominator
"Warehouse members and as such every month. We get a magazine now. Several years ago this costco magazine was the only magazine. I read cover to cover. The articles were brilliant in depth filled with great information and advice and then a couple of years ago. They made an announcement that they were changing the focus of the magazine and change a lot of the staff. Unfortunately in my opinion the quality of the magazine went downhill. The articles just art that dynamic not helpful and recently there was the magazine the issue that had a couple of different articles. That really clarified for me. What i think their problem is why. I'm not drawn to this magazine into the articles. This particular issue had two different articles one on leaders which of course i'm going to be drawn to and another one on setting up your home gym which is obviously very pertinent for the times that were in sight. Read these articles. Evidently i still read the magazine almost from cover to cover. Like i used to because they still have something inside me that just says oh there's gotta be good stuff in here. There was for so many years. So i think i'm a die hard loyal fan. That just can't give it up so yes. I read these articles. What i found in both of these articles and probably some of the other ones that i didn't necessarily read thoroughly was that they are writing to the lowest common denominator. And that's what it felt like. It felt like some of the advice in some of the information they were talking about was really common sense that most people would know this and it would only be that lowest common denominator. That wouldn't some examples so in this article on leadership and how you can be successful as a leader without feeling like you have to be perfect. Some of the advice was you. Don't have to expect yourself to never make a mistake or as a leader. You don't have to expect yourself to know everything and as a leader. You don't have to try to be perfect because that must mean you're not sharp now. My work involves a lot about leadership. It's what we consult on and train on. We work with leadership teams in organizations helping them be better leaders through communication engagement feedback processes. And this just felt like. How will this article help anyone. If you are a leader in an organization any organization whether that is your company or it is your volunteer organization. It's a networking organization. It's the pta. whatever it is. How is this article actually going to help you. And the article on setting up your home. Gym fell very similar. their tips were determine. Your goals create a budget by the right equipment. I'm sorry if i'm setting up my home. Gem isn't all of that already the process. I'm going through. So is this article really for the person who is on the verge or getting ready to or is already in the middle of setting up their home gym or is it for that lowest common denominator audience of someone who might be some day in the far future. Thinking about this at o'hare some things put in your brain pan seven months down the line
Why Would the Creator of Graham Crackers Be Horrified by Them Today?
"Harebrained steph. Lauren vogel bomb. Let's face it. One of the best things about making a campfire is making s'mores. The quintessentially american treat consisting of a toasted gooey marshmallow and a square of melted chocolate pressed between two crisp graham crackers. But have you ever wondered where graham crackers came from or where they got their name. The original graham cracker was a health food developed in the eighteen thirties. From the teachings of an american food reformer and religious teacher named sylvester. Graham who by all accounts would be appalled by what's called a graham cracker today which is typically made with refined flour high fructose corn syrup ended up dab of honey for marketing purposes instead graham's original cracker called for just wheat and gram flour a form of whole wheat flour made by grinding the endo sperm winter wheat into a fine powder and mixing it with the brand and wheat jerem it has of course texture and nutty flavor the resulting cracker contained no sugar fat and often had to be softened by soaking or boiling before eating. We spoke with new york-based food historian. Sarah weisberg johnson. She said it's funny. That of all the things that he talks about with his health reform. That's the one thing that gets widely adopted and has his name. Graham flour gets adopted by people who may not even be aware of him even towards the end of the nineteenth century and persists into some of the twentieth century. You hear about graham gems and gram bread. Cookbooks up to the nineteen forties and fifties graham. Who was not a doctor. Although he sometimes went by dr graham was horrified by the over processing and enriching of wheat flour and believed that the loss of fiber and other nutrients and white flour ruined consumer health in eighteen. Thirty seven graham published a pamphlet entitled a treatise on bread and bread making in the intro. He wrote thousands in civic. Life will for years and perhaps as long as they live. Eat the most miserable trash. The kim be imagined in the form of bread. He was basically advocating for whole-wheat homemade bread and was thus hailed by the philosopher. Poet ralph waldo emerson.

Reddit Post Inspires Airbnb Cleaning Service
"For. Neil patrick the decision to start a side. Business wasn't just so he could quit his day job and travel the world while still having an income and that was part of it but it was also a decision guided by his desire to provide for his parents. You see for thirty two years. His parents owned video rental stores. Do you remember those. But of course the industry was on its way out in this was the mid two thousand. Ten's whatever you call that decade the mid two thousand ten's. I'm not sure but those doors weren't doing well around this time. Neil who was working fifty to sixty hours a week decided. He wanted to start a service to help parents as well as himself. He tried a number of paths as he tried different side. Hustles creating an ecommerce. Site blogging about pet hair vacuums and more before stumbling across a post on. Read it from someone who started cleaning company in that post the author laid out the detailed steps taken to get going after reading through the post carefully. Neil decided to give it a try himself in early two thousand thirteen. He established made this in los angeles cleaning. Service that specializes in airbnb and residential. Cleanings his first step in doing so was creating a website tall task because he had no technical background. You'll bought a template for about one hundred dollars researched how to host a website and published. What he said was initially pretty crappy looking site. Hey we've all been there. Y'all needed to determine how much to charge for cleaning services and find a cleaners themselves. He started by contacting local people with existing companies and asking them how much they charged and with their cleaning packages. Were looking at the competition. He was able to make sure there was enough margin built into his service to ensure he could operate successfully he puts it from the reddit post to the pricing scale. He essentially started made this by copying what other companies were doing at least as a way of getting things up and running although he had software to charge customers. You'll didn't know how to pay the cleaners at first. So after they got done with an appointment he would have them come to his office where he'd run downstairs. Get cash out of an atm and hand it to them eventually. He figured out a better way. Overall it took two months to get up and running to find customers. Neil focused on digital marketing. He says local marketing a gem because you're competing against local businesses only not the entire world. So it's a bit easier to manage. And it also cost less as i customer came about july twenty thirteen which he remembers because he snuck outside from his full time job and started dancing. Another advantage to local markets is that there are many third party platforms. Like angie's list or thumb tack and neil would charge a low price at first to attract initial customers. You also tried posting flyers and using social media although he says that wasn't an especially useful marketing tool for him since people don't usually by cleaning services that way. These days made this mostly generate sales from a combination of sco yelp and paid digital ads. Because he wanted to eventually quit his full time. Job and travel. You'll established made this so they could be operated by a fully remote team of employees which includes his parents. Total investment cost was around two thousand dollars which included his website. Those digital marketing ads and advertising for cleaners operated the business part time gig for two years by two thousand fifteen. The business was doing around thirty thousand dollars in monthly sales with twenty percent profit margin so six thousand dollars in monthly profit with a success. Quit his job and booked one way flight to colombia. The business doubled that year and he's since traveled to more than thirty five countries while scaling. What was once his side. Hustle looking to the future neal is aiming to be the millennial franchise disrupting the old school cleaning franchise industry.
Document What You Do
"So being a california boy. I wasn't as familiar with lafayette radio electronics. As folks who lived in new york and new jersey in on that side of the country but in their day they were a big deal. They were a big deal. They went up against the likes of radio shack in heath kit and those kind of folks in terms of mail order electronics and they had stores to boot. I became interested in them. When i saw a few there. Stereo receivers for sale on ebay thinking. Those are the kind of cool. You know what i mean. You know when you're just kind of browsing around any go. That's a nice looking piece of equipment there. So i was initially attracted to their design but as i read up on them i saw that many people like the way they sound as well. They have that nice. Sort analog warm sound that so many people like with vintage stereo receivers and amplifiers now. They did have retail stores back in the day. Lafayette mostly in new york and new jersey as i mentioned earlier but their catalog businesses really the big deal In their lifespan. And if you live somewhere where your electronic shop was maybe a mom paw that had a limited selection or limited inventory. You could get a four hundred page. Lafayette electronics catalog and deceit everything. Everything that you wanted to see you know. The pages were filled with tape. Recorders and microphones and stereo systems. Cb radios and more and more and more they began their business in nineteen thirty-one like so many businesses. At that time they started out with a different name. I don't even recall what it was. But it evolved into lafayette electronics by the sixties and seventies You're seeing their ads. In popular electron ix stereo review in all of that and they had a number of store locations to i believe at their peak. They had something like a hundred and fifty store locations again. Most of them on the east side of the united states. The twenty two hundred. I purchased sold for two hundred ninety nine dollars in nineteen seventy six. It had a walnut. Finished would case. If feature twenty-seven watts per channel it has dual tuning a source selector switch for fono f. m. f. n. mute mp xfl filter a. and auxiliary it also had advanced features such as low noise transistors and phase locked loop stereo fm circuit for improved separation and low distortion in addition to all that it looked great. It really a a handsome looking receiver. And you'll see plenty of shots of it because i documented My restoration project of it. So you'll be able to get a good look at it. So i found my working unit on ebay for forty five dollars. It was like the perfect restoration project in the sense that with a little bit of work. And i'm talking about just a couple of hours of work. You could have something that looked ten times better than what you started with and you got it for a low price because you know one of the things about how ebay works is that is. Something looks really crappy. Obviously i mean that makes total sense right however when you know how to restore things you can look at things and say that only requires an hour's worth of work or two hours worth of work or i know how to you know. Get the part for that or or whatever and then suddenly those become you know hidden gems those become treasures that you can get a low price and then bring them back to life and you know. That's definitely what i thought i could do with this. Now it's funny. It took a long time for it to come. It came from new york. Of course right because i guess that's where a lot of those electronics are even those the mail order businesses. Well it came from new york in a large huggies diapers box that was split open on two sides and then it had styrofoam popcorn leaking out the broken areas of the box. I mean this thing. This box was possibly the ugliest box at ever arrived on my front doorstep at the studio. In fact i'm pretty sure that that driver who delivered it could not get out of his truck fast enough. You know what i mean. I i think i remember hearing it land on my doorstep. I'm not even sure if he said it down all the way i just heard this plop which probably made the seems split even more

"That is there are members of the team the want to start contributing a of a package maintenance and updating packages capacity and that kind of new to that i asked for me to cover off like some of the introductory levels stuff for updating packages I did a relatively short stream on that anonymity really long hours. I did a really long stream which will get to later and Then the other stream. I date was Of got if. I may say if i may be so bold. I've got quite good. Ibs or at least i've learned a few things about aps studio and there's a bunch of people being asking me so of show. I'm formation so i did a stream where i basically demo d- like what my a studio setup looks like and how it works so we using studio to stream your studio that's Yes i so. This was the the of hidden gem. Here i was doing. Ob s inception. I was using ubs to demo ibs. And if someone wanted to know how if you wanted to live stream oh bs using oh bs and someone wanted to know how you would do that would you do livestream and asked me the that'd be asked show how you would have done the livestream that you did. I think i can do three. I think i can go many levels deep. I think i can i. What is it. Inception go like four or five levels. Deep i think i can reproduce that with with many. Ob s.'s excellent allen. Have you been up to. I have been on the popular website azkaban to oh i found myself every so often having five minutes to spare here and there and i i thought i'd have a bit of a Go back to my roots where very first started contributing turban t which was answering support questions. I thought i'd go back to azkaban and give back to people who are asking questions now and some of it was just looking for questions. Don't have answers and trying to provide an answer or leaving. Come in asking for more detail all just up voting good answers and downloading the not so get answers just the general stuff you do. A stock exchange size is quite nice way to pass time and give something back so it's been a while since you've like really focused on that right because you started your a boon to adventure during that. Have you noticed if the nature of the questions are different now to what they were when you were doing back in like i suppose what like nine years ago something like that. He had a harder. It's more than that. It was like back in two thousand and six style idea that something like that There's some weird esoteric stuff. I don't touch and so i've got no idea how to what i'm saying question. That's the wonderful world of open source. You've an abundance desktop. Run all kinds of stuff on top of it and people are asking questions not just about. How do i get my wife as working all my system. Crashes what do i do. But they're asking you know. How do i create show scripts. That does this thing. All life half created this thing. How do i finish off. Kind of stuff is fascinating. And the thing that i discovered was that you can create saved filters so it's easy to search for stuff and such photonics that questions get tagged and such unanswered questions. Because she saved as a filter so that when you come back the site you can just press one button. And i can see all of the unanswered questions and i think those are the right ones. I aim for simply because there is someone out. There has a problem and nobody has answered. That question offered any kind of help. Toolan so i feel those are the ones i always want to take a look at first. Because someone's clearly go a problem and often you go there. I mean spirits ago someone ask. The question is not something that sat there for days and days and days and has no onset. people will often common answer but it's his interesting just to highlight the popularity of into is how fast thick and fast. These questions are coming in from people needing help. So you'll you'll advocating for answering the fresh unanswered questions as opposed to providing a better answer to an already answered question. It's all good stuff. I mean if you if you if you wanna browse the ones that are currently haute and Have a bunch of contentious answers and you wanna help clarify the best one or tidy up the answers because someone's just bashed out quick answer and you want to tidy up. You could do that as well. There's so many ways in which to get involved in ottoman too. I love it it's It's quite therapeutic and like you say it's a good way to give back to people inside. You spend a little bit of time. Doing that also helps. It's got a points system. And i'm a very points driven persons. There are no prizes but you get light activated like features and stuff within oscar onto which is quite nice motivator to get you to keep coming back. It's quite good. When you say points driven. I think you mean Soccer fa instant gamification. Yes and on that note. Let's get on with the show and now it's time for the community news and i up in the community use martin. What did you find so torsten friends who has recently voted back. Our no not voted back voted onto the bantu community council decided to write a blog post reflecting on his first month serving on the c. c. Which as a previous member of the community council. I found uninteresting a little read. Yeah i think this is a fantastic idea. Having because the the community council have closed mailing. Where conversation happens. I mean i've also been on the c some years ago and a lot of the conversations happen on that closely happens. Irc is private emails. And he's a private irc channel and these back channels where things are done But there's an open meeting on irc as well so you can join the meeting in get involved and have conversations with the c. c. But i don't think anyone's ever done like reports this of going on in my first month or my first week in the cc. I i hope does and keeps up. I hope some of the other people on the cc provide their perspective as well. Because you need you need to see you know all the different angles because on the cc find people have Opposing views on things on how to deal with conflict or what strategies might be done to improve things in the community. I think is fantastic. And i was really pleased to say this. Yeah i think a little bit of retrospective is healthy If torsten is listening. I don't think he listens I spoke to his people and his people set. No but you know to people if they were to payment touch maybe not every month but periodically like a little retrospective on how it's going Would be helpful because there are some people on the cc the all coming around the second or third time and there are other people who are fresh in and i think having a little bit of perspective and reflection on how this is working is A little bit of a healthy you know critique and analysis and he included links to two of the irc meetings of taken place. I will have links to those in the show notes for anyone that wants to see what goes on in assisi meeting Any also explains timezones hard. Because obviously the cdc is composed of people from all over the world. And i think they've actually say if you'll subscribed to a up onto fridge calendar don't expect to find the community council meeting at the time that's in the fridge because i think they've had to change the times to suit this new composition of the of the community council. Yeah it's always the way working for canonical. You get you know this people all over the world and after you shift your stuff around but people cannot call a pay to do that as polish jones whereas

What next-gen consoles really mean for audio
"Up on it moving on from there. Let's discuss three d audio for second is covered this. I'll probably do a video but dax on the ps five and on the xbox they do work it's crazy. They worked very well. They're very loud dax or again digital analog converters they take a digital signal from your usb that's pipe from the console into this chip and the chip then translates it into something you can plug your headphones into some better. Some are worse. The nice thing about bow systems is they work overall. They seem to pump out the right amount of volume which was an issue with the past consoles in particularly the ps four. I was also question. Does three d audio play through those as well as the tempest. Three d audio engine. Play through your deck and give you those upgrades it absolutely does. Let's talk about three d audio just for a second three d audio slightly weird on both systems on the xbox they do have a hardware chip for three d audio. It's very very impressive chip. But they didn't name and didn't bring it forth as something to really discuss where sony called. There's the tempest in gems and it is very powerful additionally you also have software kinds of systems. Dt s. you've got at most different support for those as well and what these do what they're supposed to do is not only help you with your normal stereo separation and you're channeling but with atmos in particular and others that are full three d. It's supposed to make you feel like the audio is coming from very different points in the game world and not just discreet left indiscreet right or somewhat muddy left in somewhat muddy. Right now the past systems did have some support. Like i said for. Disd ex As well as at most on the xbox on the ps five. You can't get this through. Hdmi be aware that the only way to get the three d audio effect that they're going for is through. The headset plugged into the controller. Or a deck. Why bring it. We'll because it's not the greatest right now spiderman has some okay three audio but the best one is probably call of duty when i was playing call of duty with the three audio both on the xbox and on the ps five which i gotta admit were about identical in their quality. I didn't really actually feel like the. Ps five was much better. In fact. I've talked to multiple people who play both and i don't think anybody does the for example in the second part of the first level. There's a helicopter that flies over your head. And if you have all the three d audio setting set on if you have a nice stereo system or headphones for the xbox or if you have your headphones or adapt for the ps five. It really does sound like that helicopters above your head. There's some really nice of the three and some effects which i'll start covering more reviews but as it stands right now. The big question is is the three d audio a feature that you're missing or a feature that they missed and i would personally say at this time. It is a feature that they have missed. We have not seen a jump in the three d audio really paying off yet. I'm sure we absolutely will. As these companies come more to grips with what's going on and everybody sort of gets out of that emergency panic mode which we see right now. Where a lot of these companies are just trying to get their games out there so that people can play them. I'm a big fan of three the audio. I think it's great. I have the three d. pulse from sony. Which by the way. A lot of people were assuming. That was a special headset. You need for the sony playstation five. You don't you do not need that headset. that's a normal headset. there's not anything like magically special. That's a branded sony headset. That they've made some adjustments to nevertheless a normal headset will work as long as it's not super high power requirements is long as you plug it into the controller or the dak. You will get those. And i think you should try it. You should definitely play with those and adjust them with the xbox again h just works looking at and sort of stepping away and looking at three d audio. there's an excellent gamasutra and g. d. c. video on on youtube game developer conference where you can read about gears of war and the three d audio there. If you want to really hear how three d audio is done well in a game go check that video out. It is a longer video. It's like forty to fifty minutes. But they cover everything from clues in sound reverberates bouncing different layers discreet abilities for particular surfaces to eat up sound phenomenal job in that video. You should definitely check it out gears of war.
President Trump Continues To Deny Election Results And President-Elect Biden Plans for His Presidency
"Briefing on monocle. Twenty four and welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me. Andrew miller the white house continues to echo with the post-election tantrum of us president donald trump who spent the weekend insisting series of the kind of all capital tweets which always indicate an ordered mind at work that november thirds election was rigged which wasn't and he won which he didn't president elect joe biden however seems to have decided that he has greater priorities than worrying about any further legal challenges. Launched by rudy giuliani from garden center. Parking lots and is focusing on plans for reviving a hopefully imminently post pandemic economy on joined by suzanne lynch washington correspondent for the irish times season. Welcome as always to the briefing. We'll look at joe biden's plans shortly but first of all is donald trump's wining actually gaining any traction. Is anybody taking him seriously. And i was there at the march on saturday now wasn't a million maga- march of as he'd predicted but there were tens of thousands of americans. They're waving flags and singing hymns in some cases holding signs saying the steel and alleging that the election has been stolen so he is getting a lot of traction from supporters and on conservative media gems. Here with on fox news for example bush. Look the facts are. The joe biden has won the election and as these various states moved to sir officially certify those election results in each stage. Who's is going to be happening in the next week or so. I think that it's going to become more likely. The deriving will become clear on the wall to donald trump. That it's time to go. And unfortunately though he is digging in as you say at science no sign of him conceding jaw and of course. The question is what's doing to american democracy. We've got a lot of 'small. I want a sizable minority of this country. Who believe the dumb from did not win the election even though he did so. I think it's a sorry state of affairs here. In this country that we now have a president who is refusing to concede does president elect joe biden basically appear to be a policy of ignoring him as far as possible. Yes yes. I think you're right out of there on. It's quite a clever policy. So it's almost like a child in the coroner's having a tantrum don't give them any attention. He just get an expert system toxic of strategy been taken by joe biden. He was at questioned on this last week and he did say it was an embarrassment and it was going to damage ed donald trump legacy but he did step back from launching a full scale attack on trump at particularly there is an issue now that a federal agency here. The gsa is using to at handover resources and information. If you'd like to the incoming president like it should so joe biden would be his rights there to criticize ups in clever to be averse holding back. If you know i put the moment so that strategy described exactly what he's adopting. I think one of the reasons he's doing that is because he knows that a lot of donald trump supporters at be this way and he has said during his campaign he wants to beautify reach out to the other side. If you like so. I think he's trying to tag anais and try not to inflame further tensions at a stage trying to lower the temperature. So that's the strategy. But i do think along with this goes on. It could become more problematic for example if they really are not going to hand over these resources. Gsa people are expecting. Maybe this week they will would. If that doesn't happen with then we really could see things become more tense here and with the biden campaign that i'm saying listen hang on. We need this information on his time feud handed over. We will doubtless cross that bridge when we get to it but for the moment what do we know of what. Joe biden plans to put into action. Once he does become president on january twentieth. Well he has said that in his first few days he's going sign executive orders whereby we expect him to rejoin the paris climate accord for example. Aba expect to happen at more. Also maybe something on immigration we for example. There's been the rumbling row about daca. There are the end. The kids known as dreamers. Young people who came to america brought to america by their parents illegally and they had been given amnesty essentially under the obama administration trump reversed. It got stuck in the courts but we expect maybe by to do something on this however other plans is due to unveil economic plan of some kind or make a speech today at in delaware but a lot of that is gonna be dependent on whether he democrats have controlled and the sanish at that looks unlikely it comes to senate runoff races in georgia in early january democrats have to win vocals raises which i think very tall ask if they don't if the only way one they're not in control of the senate republicans are and that is gonna make difficult for biden to push through some of his his policy issues on tax for example even energy and he's talking about not doing in green you deal but actually quite a progressive platform in terms of energy infrastructure. So that could be stymied by the by sanish. if republicans are in control there. What do we know as well about what. President-elect biden wants to do differently in terms of handling the pandemic obviously. There is good news on the vaccine. And there's been further good news just within the last hour as a. Us vaccine is now claiming to be ninety five percent Effective or thereabouts But that's still going to take weeks and months to implement a new cases are clearing one hundred thousand today. What does he want. America to do differently until that vaccine is ready to roll when it's been quite interesting in the last few days because one of the maggie appointed a new advisory board on corona virus is one of the members of the board has been doing interviews and the words lockdown has entered the lexicon here which on a national level and a lot of people are against us at here in this country. And you know nobody has mentioned the idea that we should have national lockdown and vigers now has netted the biden campaign has pushed back on that day. No no this is. Just one of my advisers is what we're considering so that would be considered very much to nuclear option here. As joe biden has to kind of tread carefully. The issue here is at each stage has a lot of power about how they handle the krona virus. So he's going to have his highness flow trying to add. Push through suggestions to republican control states. You know the governor saif kosher for example you know is a bit in. Denial about corona virus doesn't want many restrictions like high was joe biden going to ensure a national mandate for anything. It's going to be difficult and at the moment he has been talking about mask wearing. Because there's still a lot of resistance to the us in this country. As i saw on saturday after march were few people were wearing masks. That seemed to be what he's focusing on at the moment and the other thing would be my distribution of the vaccine making that more equitable already. The governor of new york has criticized on trump's plans. That saying that you know well off people will end up getting the vaccine not poor people who are more affected by cold so we expect to see him focusing more on that more equitable distribution of acting when we get faxing point suzanne ledge. Thank you as always. That was suzanne lynch with the irish times in washington.
The Suffolk Strangler
"His tone was descending into panic in the final weeks of two thousand six but forty eight year old steep right was on top of the world. He had gotten away with murder twice. On second passer-by found the body of gem adams the second woman he killed his first victim. Canyon nickel had still not been found. What's more his devoted girlfriend. Pamela suspected nothing. The steve she knew was a shy unremarkable. Man who loved golf soap operas and her homemade shepherd's pie but without even knowing it pamela was a part of his deadly nighttime routine. Pamela night shifts at a call center every evening right came home from his own shop as a forklift driver. Ate dinner then drove pamela to work after kissing her goodbye. He drove back into town where he picked up sex workers in the red light district but more recently rights appetites took a darker turn. Now he wasn't looking for women to sleep with. He was looking for his next. he was meticulous. He used gloves to handle. The bodies then carefully vacuumed his car and washed his clothes right. After by the time. Pamela arrived home at dawn. He was in bed. Sound asleep the day. The body was found right and pamela. Were watching the news on tv. Pamela pushed her plate away unable to eat another bite with horror. I'll bet the other one's dead to without missing a beat right kept eating and said yeah. I bet you're right. Most people wouldn't be this calm watching their murders become headline news but right wasn't like most people. Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode. please note. Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks greg rights. Calm behavior during this period and his uncanny ability to lie to his loved ones could indicate antisocial personality disorder. Although as far as we know he's never been diagnosed with this or any other personality disorder. Right fits many of the criteria for apd as outlined by the dsm five a pattern of deceitfulness of failure to follow through on personal or professional obligations hostility and a lack of remorse for hurting others. Key lied to his partners about using sex workers for years. Dating all the way back to his twenty. He had a long history of bad debts and short-lived jobs and seemed free from remorse for the violent abuse of his second wife. Diane though it's not clear what was going through rights head at the moment has murders came on the news. It seems that he wasn't afraid of getting caught. In fact it's possible. The discovery made him more anxious to kill again. The day after gemma's body was found. He was back on the hunt. On the evening of december third right picked up twenty four year old. Analii alderson of feisty. Mother of one analyst struggled with drug addiction in her teenage years and was never able to shake the habit in the last months of two thousand six. She turned to sex work in order to make ends meet. She was last seen alive that night boarding a train around six. Pm on underway. Way to ipswich where she was known to work the streets few hours after she arrived in ipswich she crossed paths with steve right. It's important to note that right has never offered full accounts of his murders. So we can only piece together a possible version of events based on forensic evidence and later testimony. What's uncontested is that right. Drove emily back to his flat on london road just a few minutes away from where he picked her up and they had after they finished analee. Try to leave but wouldn't let her. He made a habit of choosing women who were physically slight and stood no chance against him. It was only too easy for him to overpower her and strangled her to death shortly before two. Am a traffic camera captured. Right driving out of it switch. He drove several miles southeast with annelies body on the floor of his car stopping in a wooded area near the village of nakdimon there he prepared to dispose of her body just as he had ten years and gemma's but this time something was different right left his first two victims in water but this evening he chose dry land at instead of simply dumping attlee in the woods. He arranged her body in a cruiser form shape on her back arms outstretched side to side like across even with this extra attention to detail. Right was back home by three. A m as always. He washed and vacuumed his car. Put all of his clothing in the washing machine and went to bed.
Donald Trump Is Still not Conceding To The Election Results
"Donald trump is still refusing to concede after losing the us election and is insisting that he won citing baseless claims of voter fraud. He's backed up by most of his republican party and together. They're ignoring the will of the people the very foundation of democracy brian classes and associate professor in global politics at ucla and a columnist for the washington post and has written extensively on these subjects. Brian is this aku. no it's not. And the reason for that is because a coup has a very specific definition. Which is a seizure of executive power by military force. And that's not likely to happen in the united states but it is potentially going to be something where the republican party and trump are attempting to seize power after. They've lost an election which is extraordinarily dangerous for democracy. And even though it's not easy to succeed in it is. I mean there joe biden. We'll get inaugurated on january twentieth. The amount of damage is doing in faith in the democratic institutions and the democratic process of the united states enormous. And so we shouldn't take lightly i mean. Can you imagine the international reaction. If this was happening elsewhere in the world. Latin america africa. There would be a huge global outcry. Why are so many colluding with the emperor's vision of his new clothes. It has happened elsewhere in the world we had an election. a couple of years ago in the gambia in west africa in which gem lost the election and then claimed that he wanted and tried to stay in power and there was a threatened military intervention To remove him and eventually forced him out. So you're you're absolutely right. It would be treated differently and very seriously the reason why people are going along with it is twofold one is on the international stage. You have hesitancy because of geopolitics. So you know. Boris johnson would condemn this. If it was happening in west africa he won't condemn it in the us because he's worried about the blowback from the trump administration the last seventy days and on the domestic stage. The republican party is going along with it because they've made a calculation unfortunately that they think that it's best to keep the base fired up and also they don't want to alienate the base by breaking with trump before. They think he's had his time to sort of run his course so they've made a very cynical strategy Part of their game plan. And it's as i say it's doing immense damage because a majority of republicans now something between seventy-five and eighty five percent of republicans. Believe this election was stolen. Despite every piece of evidence pointing to this being one of the most well managed and well executed elections in modern american history. So at what point does it. Democratically elected leader become a dictator. It's a very good question. It's a gray area. It's it's basically win. They have taken power and failed to relinquish it in accordance with the democratic process. And so this is an instance where if trump were to stay in power illegally then yes of course We would have to stop talking about the. Us has democracy. What we have now is an attempt right. I believe that the democratic institutions of the us even though they have been battered under the last four years in our very damaged are strong enough that in this instance it won't prove successful and i think if we do actually game out the idea of him somehow trying to stay in the white house after january twentieth wouldn't the. Us shut down. There would be there would be riots. There would be violence. There would be general strikes. I mean it's it's unfathomable because even though that chunk of the republican party the hards believed that trump's somehow one or that the election was manipulated. And they're wrong about that. Eighty percent of the country knows joe biden one which is depressing. It's only eighty percent because it's quite clear that he won but it still overwhelming and therefore it's impossible to imagine Trump stained power without enormous backlash to that. And i don't think the republicans would actually go along with it once you get to that stage. I think they're indulging him because they think it's a ploy but i don't think that they would let him stay in power beyond inauguration day and i'm guessing that also republicans don't want to alienate the voter base. That may well get them to senate seats in georgia on the fifth of january. Yeah it's an interesting strategy this because of just in terms of pure it's obviously extraordinarily cynical but if we're evaluating interest from the merits of strategy as effectiveness there's a potential for blowback here right if you tell people that the elections are stolen from you in places like georgia. There's a risk that people in georgia who are republicans. Don't vote right. I mean they have. They have to get their base out and so even though they might be fired up about the the narrative that the republicans are selling them the narrative selling them as saying don't matter because they get rigged anyway which is again not true but some people believe that to be true and you wonder if on january fifth which is not a normal time for people to be voting. Usually special elections have low turnout whether the democratic base which is going to be very fired up for this could have a boost from the fact that some georgia republicans will say. Forget about it. I i don't wanna vote. Because i've heard all these conspiracy theories that my vote won't be counted anyway so you mentioned the danger for democracy an and as he also said one presumes that eventually he will have to go but how much damage can inflict before he does. I mean one area would seem to be how we view democracy in the future and would perhaps appoint to a changing of the constitution. Which really only has a couple of paragraphs on the office of the president. And i guess it relies. It's soft guidelines isn't it relies on on the good nature. The good faith of the president to to behave in a presidential way. Maybe that needs to change. Yeah i mean. I think the story Of the post trump era could be one. That's very optimistic. For democracy depending on how the senate seat elections go Because as you rightly point out what he's done is exposed. How much of american politics relies on norms and the sort of good faith that people in elected office will obey those norms. And what could happen as happened. After watergate with richard nixon is an attempt to codify right into law the norms so that they can't be up for discussion and i think this would be a very positive development that being said he can do enormous damage. He's got seventy four days in office and you know he is poisoning Republicans in particular in terms of their minds thinking about democracy. And that matters. I mean you have to have both parties believe in the legitimacy of the other party when they went elections if you want to have a democracy survive and right now that is not the case. And i you know. It's the first time in at least modern american history. That's been true so we do need to pay very close attention to what he's doing in terms those soft aspects of democracy. Now he's mark espa the defense secretary since then. There's been a run of firings and resignations at the top of the pentagon. John now has his people in place. And he's ousted those whose who would defy will. What might he try and achieve here. I mean could. He bring troops home from afghanistan in time for christmas. As long said he would thereby further destabilizing the region could he provoke conflict with iran leaving biden with a huge issue to deal with. Yeah this is one of the mysteries. I mean trump. You usually can understand trump pretty well by looking at ego narcissism personal interest financial interests. The question here is whether that explains these moves. As well so one narrative of course would be espa stood up to him on various things like deploying the military to quash protests and said. I'm not going to do that. And this is payback for him to fire him but there is some other stuff going on. That makes me wonder if there's more to this story like for example. A series of arms deals that have seemed to be arms transfers. It seemed to be concluded with various middle east Dictatorships and the question is is trump trying to do something to us foreign policy or is he trying to provide favors to countries that he may have future business interest in because his financial empire is going to be under enormous when his debt gets called in after he leaves the white house and there could be some Interest for him in trying to curry favor with some foreign governments in which towers may sprout up in the coming years. I don't know but Tinkering with national security drain a already volatile. Lame duck period is extremely dangerous. And it's not just the firings it's also the fact because he refuses to accept biden's transition biden hasn't started getting the presidential daily brief so he's not up to speed on all the threats facing and all of that means that it's less likely that biden will be as ready as possible on day one and that is something that should not be a partisan issue it should be for all americans to care about and of course he's not getting the funds that are meant to be released for the transition team either and there's a deadline for the legal challenges and as you say it's unlikely any of them will stick to to the degree that they changed results. So how and. When is this going to end well. Presumably what will happen is the certification deadline which is coming up in a couple of weeks for the various states. will come and go with certifications so that you know the new times called or email. All of the secretaries of state who are in charge of elections in in all fifty states and one hundred percent of them said that there was no fraud in their states and in fact trump's lawyers are saying the same thing in court when they're pressed right. The judges are are you. Are you alleging fraud. And they're having to say no because the lawyers actually have to inhabit reality so at some point the results will be certified and once that happens. It's a legally binding certification. That trump has lost the election so i think that the delusion will increasingly become a fringe view. It will still exist. Trump may never accept that he lost but as long as he's out of the white house on january twentieth limits the amount of damage he can do because it will be the end of his time in real power. Brian thank you very much indeed.
Interview With Yahia Lababidi
"Welcome everybody sparked by muse. And today i have a guest. Yahia la vida de. I hope i didn't mess that up too badly beautiful. Who is a writer. An egyptian who's come to america as a young adult eight critically acclaimed books of poetry and prose. he's an authorised an sas and most recently he sent me revolutions of the heart literary cultural and spiritual which is just a treasure trove of little gems. Some smaller pieces some slightly larger pieces and to begin speaking about it. It's hard to know where to choose at this banquet table where to pick but you so much for joining me for the podcast. Thank you for having me over here in new to and also. I want to make sure that we tell listeners about this book being the book for january. Twenty twenty one and meeting up with you in february on the third for a book club. Discussion and fighting. That'll be really fun. What's nice is that it's recorded so anytime someone wants to come back. And listen or it can be embedded on your webpage even or or any web page. Yeah it could be revisited and enjoyed over and over you define aphorisms as what is worth quoting from the souls dialogue with itself and you also say that you hope that might serve as a form of peace offering and bomb in these troubled times and for people who are not quite aware or quite. Have a handle on what aphorisms are. Perhaps you can just explain that a little bit and then speak about what that offers us today. Well it's it's basically it has currency without being recognized for what it is so anything when people have these quotes or inspirational sayings or even what they call it. A witty wise one liners. That's an aphorism if if it doesn't have a name attached to it and it's a maximum or proverb in the assuming some great sage cited then it's an another category of instruction but but enough for them. They're certainly more people who are aware of what they are. And who use them consciously now than when. I began writing them. Let's say thirty years ago at this point as a teenager. When i don't think anyone even knew what that meant but i grew up reading. People like braun. Nietzsche and blake and kafka and pascal who tended to write in offer 'isms and they basically i mean wild has some definitional skar wild about how he had some existing a phrase. I do not presume to some olives in a frozen any of my offers. But it's this. It's this idea of trying to encapsulate a great conversation. And that's why. I define it as a competition with the souls conversation with itself really so you go off. You're thinking about something dreaming meditating possibly weeks years even and then at some point. There's one line that you can extract from all that that can stand alone by itself that will be a key or a door or window or invitation for a complete stranger to have that conversation with themselves so a good aphorism doesn't in my understanding of it at least in everyone's got their own definition is just as suggestion or you to sort of the spark your own conversation With with your with your soul so to speak. And that's why. I really appreciate reading Books of aphorisms where there's few on the page and a lot of blank space because it's understood that they are in need of diluting the way you dilute. It is by bringing in everything you know. Suspect you know we're just breathing alongside it

Recommendation and Discovery: The Big, Exciting Elephant in the Room
"This is like the big elephant in the room and potentially the big exciting being in the room recommendation and discovery. How do you then think about that side of this both in the context of spotify shows, and also beyond we open this conversation about what hasn't hasn't changed this has been a broken problem quote in podcasting it might not be as broken in music. We've talked about Tiktok we've talked about the parallels and differences between video. Let's bring it all back together around this theme and topic of. Recommendation and discovery for music. There is a commitment of than two or three seconds to figure out if you like a song, right. So the bar for who you trust as your source for who's giving you that recommendation is higher, and so you either have to have a system that builds trust showing that their algorithm has given. You enough hits Tiktok can't be wrong. Five times in a row stakes are really high. So you either have an algorithm that is so good that knows enough about your ready that the majority of the time when they give you something you like it or you have crater that also has that same kinda hit rate you realize hey, stuff that person likes I also like. Not, is also a great way to kind of get that discovery element. It's all adult giving the user this end trust that they're willing to test your recommendation because say eighty, ninety percent of the time you're GONNA be right. So I think you're completely right. That was the success with user playlists. They're literally mini billions of different cure the spotify catalog so. You have something for everyone and either they find that plane this you can use machine learning to learn from that to be able to serve us. Then you have the elements themselves and I think that's different between music and podcast music is easy in a sense because it is three minute items and you can skip through and what we see in music. As that is like the investment of how much time do you spend versus finding one gem so it is actually okay if even most of the songs theoretically are not that good if the skip through and like the seven song is like your Dream Song because I can make your entire week or maybe month right so I think I think Chris. Dickson. Sadness. A fault tolerant you I, if your machine learning is perfect, the only need to answer one item if you machine learning is one out of ten, you probably need to show ten items because then there's always one jam on the screen you heard that user interface to your kind of level of recommendation, and so these sailors formats we try to think of. As kind of a g to get things done, you quickly go through and like Yep that was perfect saying that to my library, it's like a productivity flow in the discovery moment, which is very different from consumption moment when you may be on a speaker and then it's not okay. That's you have three songs in a row but his okay if the. Fourth one is good.

"We've got some of the the earliest books that were published in mexico when publishing was first made available there and even records that show interactions between the spanish colonial government and native nations. In what is now. The united states because of course that southern border didn't always exist. That's a relatively recent phenomenon and one of the things. We really take away from some of the archive. Collections is how recent our current political borders maps truly are because the choctaw people in the american south were interacting with spanish colonial leaders and officials in the seventeen hundreds before the area was part of the present united states so there's really interesting international and global ramifications between the americas in europe that you can see from some of these archives that really should i think a a much more nuanced and much more interesting understanding of american history than than what we tend to get in that k through twelve education. And so that's i mean just really at as a someone who studies art history in and really loves history. I find that in this area. That i'm less familiar with this. Just absolutely fascinating and one of the other documents that truly wonderful from the collection we also have several archive collections at better from native american leaders from the southeast of the united states during the indian removal period during the period around the trail of tears in the eighteen thirties eighteen forties. But one of the documents we have is a is a sequoias siliguri. It's the turkey. A scholar sequoia who develops the The alphabet this for the cherokee language in the early nineteenth century and we have a copy of the cylinder that he wrote. It's in his own hands. So it's showing this at this language preservation for the cherokee people but also the way that the cherokee were adapting to all of these different cultural influences at that time period and really the ways of the church people are thriving and in some of these. This really fantastic innovation From that time. So there's just a some great ways of seeing different connections between cultures in the world that that you can see through some of these documents and archives that i think are really surprising and new light in the way we histories. Wow so many. Let's just a couple. There's so many just a couple and so important just so inspiring and so many ways and wow well. It's been a treat to talk with you. Laura this is wayne stories.

"But i could reality. Being able to create. Artwork is a hand eye. Coordination is just like throwing a baseball playing piano in some ways. Some people have a natural aptitude. But everybody can learn how to do that. If you practice. So i think there's a sort of me becoming from the renaissance in this idea of figures like angelo. Lobbying kind of the lone genius like has kind of hasn't done us a good turn in the way we think about creating artwork to anybody can be an artist and anybody can take joy in that creative impulse and We tend to like to bury it. I think as adults because we think we're not good enough for that. It's all that. That's not something i can do. And we truly. I think anybody is capable in finding joy in creating artwork or in in imbuing artwork. So i think it's really a a something. I wish we gave ourselves more permission to do. I know when you described the kids in that or shop. It's i can just picture them. And it's it's very refreshing image. And so can you teach or rather maybe une teach what you just described to teach that creativity or teach people to let go of their innovations. Is that part of art. Instruction i think so. You know i'm not. I'm not an art educator by profession. But i think encouraging people to kind of get past those inhibitions or to not to cling so tightly to them is certainly part of art instruction firfer any even for those younger children. But they're just less likely to be bothered by the first place they've got a bell disco for it but again i think really. It's anytime you learn a new skill. it's a little bit intimidating. Because you start out without you start being the worst one on in the group right you start out playing really simple one note songs on the piano and they don't sound particularly great at first so i think it's like any new skill it's kind of a willingness to stick with it or to to take it to somewhere where you're finding enjoyment with it and that's why things beautiful about artwork or or a creative impulses. It doesn't have to be for anybody else can really just be for for an individual and doesn't have to have an intended audience at i. One of the phrases us was less likely to be bothered by an i love.

"Never undone and the supreme court decision does not cause a major change for most of us living here in eastern oklahoma. Although my husband and i By the supreme court decision now are we are reaffirmed to be living on the muskogee creek nation and basically stay said that had never been undone. What it impacts is tribal citizens who commit crimes on tribal lands. So it's basically a not an enrolled tribal member so it doesn't have much impact on me or on on my husband's also not nominee enrolled tribal member but fern rolled tribal citizens. It changes some of the ways that legal processes work for them and So it doesn't it doesn't have a direct impact on most of us living here in oklahoma. But it's still incredibly important because it recognizes the legal right to exist for native american nations in the united states and to hold that nation to nation relationship with the us government so it's really an affirmation of tribal sovereignty here in oklahoma and it was really incredible to see reactions from many of my friends. Here who are. Just i think blown away and just so incredibly emotionally impacted by the symbolism of this decision and the message that sense. It's amazing. I think there was a lot of people it was reported. Probably incorrect won the popular press around the country as so like a bunch of oklahoma was going to be turned back over to the native americans. People were confused about that. But what you're saying is that it's more of a sovereignty issue over existing right and it's really. It's not as i see it. And again. I i may not be quite correctly stating this but from how i understand it. It's not so much turning land back over as acknowledging that this land was always muskogee creek and here and here in tulsa we are at a point where the muskogee creek nation the cherokee nation and the osage nation. All come together so where. My house is is muskoka. Quick recognition the gilchrist museum is on the nation but both of those places are also under the jurisdiction of the city of tulsa so there are these overlapping jurisdictions here. And i've lived in oklahoma for almost five years and i'm still trying to understand some of the the local politics in the history in how these things of all because it is fairly complicated but the supreme court decision absolutely recognized the the importance of that tribal sovereignty from the beginning. It really was a A notable decision for the nations in oklahoma and across the united states. And then so tell us about the enduring. Spirit is is an exhibit. is that what. How you one of our a permanent collection exhibitions at gilchrist museum. And it's Organized by geography and shows and has a each section section of the great plains about oklahoma the southwest the northwest and each section has a pretty wide range of time periods so we tried to include some contemporary art alongside historic material. All the way through there but this exhibition is also one that we're really looking forward to updating with the new building design. one of the things. we're aiming to change about gilchrist is again bringing more voices than we currently have presented in our galleries also aiming to combine the different areas of our collection in new ways. Right now we have. Most of the paintings and sculptures by european american artists in one area and artwork by native american artists in another area and archives are in a totally separate building so we really have been thinking about these collections in in distinct ways and one of the things we'd like to do is to really combine those and to look more. Broadly thematically across the goal crease collection. And there's a couple of different reasons for this but among other things. We.

"Welcomed the stories here podcasts. There's a creative freedom that young children possess where they aren't many of them are not held back by this concept of what artists opposed to look like younger. Children tend to ten knots. Worry about what they're creating or what other people will think about it and to just create and it's really lovely to see it can be really wonderful to see a whole classroom of children just having fun being creative using color and shape and line and different ways and i think it could help them really understand the world around them and distinct ways. It's not. I don't see art in schools as being something fluffy or the lighthearted fun time but but really helping children to see and to understand the world of different ways so hi. This is wayne parker stories here. Podcast delighted today to talk to laura fry who says senior curator and curator of art at the gilchrist museum in tulsa oklahoma and the us and so law. Thanks for being with us today. Yes thank you for the invitation. So i'm interested in in you and your background. Let's start with what you were like as a kid and then could you ever have imagined as a kid. You doing what you're doing today you know. I think i wouldn't be too surprised. I was one of those kids who was always into drying into art. I was really drawn to the idea of a career that was based in the arts in some ways from a very young age. I think at some point i thought i was going to be a potter professional potter. You know for my living and moved on from that. But i think my mom used to tell stories about when i was very little. I wouldn't really play with my dolls. I would sort of set them up in very elaborate tableaux leave them be so i think maybe i was always ready to be a museum curator and work on exhibitions. I did a my undergraduate. I've a fine arts from washington university in st louis and a master's of art history from university of denver. The path that you've taken the career path that you've taken doesn't sound like it was that much of a surprise if you look back at it. What things in the field have surprised you. That's a great question i. I don't know. I'm surprised actually by that. There aren't more curious to come from a fine arts background in some way i find that. Having the academic grounding in sort of studio art studio practice is really helpful for curated artworks and really having a tactile understanding of artistic processes. And ah i candidate had that i or that experiential understanding of how some of these processes work. Even though some of the things i created in art school weren't particularly spectacular..

That the Lakers are down guards avery Bradley has gone. and now Rondo has broken his handle. crusoes by the way Caruso and Lebron I. have some numbers here? But I got to use on the jump that that didn't end up using because this segment got cut, but I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Do you know that? You know I'm not gonNA. Sit here and tell you that. Too Man lineup data is the be all end all but the Lebron Caruso duo has outscored opponents by twenty point eight points. Per One hundred possessions this year. one hundred fifteen offense efficiency, which means parental possessions when they're on the court, they score one hundred and fifty hundred and fifteen points. Ninety four defensive efficiency, which means per one hundred possessions when they're out there together, they give ninety four point sir. How many minutes did you say They played at least three hundred, the best man light up the entire NBA. At least three hundred minutes the second best lineup by the way is. is Eric, bledsoe. jaanus okay so. You know so Caruso and Lebron like. During the season like Laker, fans like stop learner on to start playing. You know. So, okay, so he goes to Lebron and AD and here's Caruso said. This quote is gorgeous and I. Just want to commend Alex for saying this and being very delicate. They supported my decision either way. Caruso said. They also helped me realize how important I am to what we are trying to do here now. That avery did make it, and Rondo hurt his hand, and that there is some added responsibility. Can you imagine how that conversation and? Said like Hey, listen man I know. It's your sister I. Know It's only gets married once. But what are you doing? You're not going anywhere. And he did and I feel bad for him. You know I mean. He and I have talked. He has a connection to Omaha. His family is from here. He comes back every summer for the college world series not this summer. I i. just find the story amazing. Jackie, yeah, well, it's just. Just, it's getting to the nitty gritty here now you know, and now Lebron said I think I think so too, and you know. Maybe if Avery Bradley hadn't had made the decision he had may be if Rondo you know. Maybe the Lakers could feel a little different, a little more magnanimous about the nuptials, but. It's just I think and that's why I was saying when we did that. Factor fiction thing I don't know if I forget who I had to do it with, but factor fiction this Lebron's best shot or you know is the Braga dominator some question like that, and it's like. Of course he's going to because nobody in the league. Nobody understands the mental gymnastics. Gymnastics of what it takes to win better than Lebron. There's not one current player in the league that's better at it than him. I will stand by that. He has the mental temerity the mental tenacity, and knows exactly what it takes an begins with just a focus right this you've got to be almost like have tunnel vision, and so all this other stuff. I'm sure at some point, lebrons. DUDES IN ORLANDO I know everybody's fishing whatever but remember why we're here. Every team used to be having that conversation with their players. I wonder if Caruso went to a dion waiters, Jr Smith and asked her. What it would. Yeah I just I just talked about wanting to be a fly on the wall. No kidding you know I have to say. Did you guys check out what they did with the courts today by the way? The fact we've even gotten to today. No positive tests earlier credible. The bubble has been formed now whether the bubble can stay connected. That's a different question. The bubble has been formed. They've gotten the virus. You know maybe not. Everybody is thrilled with the food, but they're feeding everybody. Everybody's got everything that they need. There's been MRI is there's been xrays. There has been everybody's getting their treatment. Everybody's getting in the right places. All the equipment is there the media. Is there I mean there's complaining here and there and and not not everything's going to be perfect, but want an accomplishment just to get to this point I mean it. It's got a hold to be worthwhile, but I mean. Nobody wants to hear complaints about the food. especially from troy dangles who who even remembered? He was in the League. While he was the only guard active on the nuggets, but when he complained about food. It's like I was like Oh yeah Troy Daniels on I didn't realize you it's like. Troy Daniels shut up and Castro check dude. I I am as is I hold the NBA feet to the fire as much as anybody why I'm here to say. It, just amazing Dave Weiss who is the one of the guys who is leading this whole effort a guy in the in the you probably have never heard his name who's in the Hierarchy League office. Who's like the Kovic Czar, and everything and Byron Sprewell, who is the head of operations? the amount of work that went into. This is just amazing, but. You guys see the way the courts are set up. They. They don't want him. Have empty stands so they've. They've they've encircled the court in backdrops and for each team. That's the home team they have. Plastered their logos and they're like today. I was watching. The clippers game and they had. Like you would see the.

"Guests who else has had zero positive tests and has been together now for a month, and as he second-best closing team in basketball, say there and they have a veteran team. And they got guys on that team or unaffected. Kyle lowry doesn't give a bleep Serge Ibaka doesn't give a bleep past. com is saw. And their coach is a guy. Okay who has a long history of winning under crazy circumstances, he's he's one in like six different leagues. Mean he nick? Nurse likes to tell a story about when he was coaching in Belgium and they had two. Different divisions of Belgium and they were the top team in what you do when you played like a lower division team is, you'd have to give them points. He's talked about how they would have to go on the road like High School Gym and start the game. Down thirty points. you know, and if you lost it was it was considered a complete embarrassment. 'cause you lost to a team of two or three divisions down. Like. Nick Nurse Story is when he was coaching in England. I think it was, and he was too young to drive the team van, so starting center had to drive the van. That's my favorite. That was before he had his own logo. I'm guessing. He's got his own logo to. Out To get a book coming out, too I wanna read about all that stuff I don't know what's in that book, but I'm just GonNa, say okay. I'm not saying he's got A. who a little bit of fairy dust and throw it out there and all of a sudden number to Hawaii. Leonard is going to be back I I'm not I'm not saying that I'm just saying like. What is continuity mean we have? We have the other side here and the raptors. Look they. Had More I. Don't know if this. Typically fact, but it just seems like they dealt with more injuries than any of the you know. I'M GONNA call him an elite team. They're on a sixty wimpey's thirty defending champ. I think that qualifies as elite wise on the number to get the third best record in the League right. I mean all of their guys missed stretches some of Mike Major stretches season now they're all. They're all healthy and nick nurse. Looks Serious series game to game quarter a quarter. I think he might be the best defensive game plan. Slash Adjustment Coach in the League and he will throw look. I was I covered a game up there this season where through the full court press of the Mavericks. Down thirty late in the third quarter of the raptors came back on the game. He'll throw out trying to know. You can call it a hat. Yeah, but he'll. He's not afraid to throw. Anything asks you and we saw asked year he made, will he? His game plan along with some great defense personnel made life difficult on the honest in the playoffs. Yeah. I just. I've been talking about those two teams a lot. Watch them. Come out and bags, but I'm just. I I'm I. See how they are just operate differently, and we talked about on the last pod over the weekend. Just how the raptors have like got, they've they've bent over backwards. And that every idea possible to try to make their situation, there is home is home as possible but. I don't know what it means, but we'll see so in the first series of scrimmages you know. Some of the Games are still going on right now. We're not seeing them, but So the today play with a players. They started Boll Ball. Who is municipal son? A seven foot to he went to Oregon, but had a terrible injury. broke the navicular bone in his foot which is. One of the scariest injuries you can have for a big man. It ended careers the. Career for example, other players have had break multiple times and recovered and moved on from at Brook Lopez L. Go. Yeah I think one of the gasol brothers might have broken it well indeed and be brought in victim mult- multiple times I believe so it's something you get very worried about. And he was regarded at one time as top five or eight talent. because of the foot injury slid way in the draft all the way back. Some teams passed on him twice in the second round alone while there is other reasons for that, too. There are other reasons for that. There was attitude issues with Bobo. That's one of the reasons you slip out of the first round because of your injury, but you slip in the second round because people aren't convinced, you're serious about wanting to be a great MBA player. So the nuggets after drafting him my think at forty four They only signed him to a two way contract and he spent the whole year rehabbing. I don't even know if he played in the G. League to be honest with you. so. There's been a little bit of chatter about him from the Nuggets D-. But part of the reason there's chatter about him. Because all their players were back in Denver. for various reasons some of them have admitted why and some of them have not, but you know, do whatever you want to do with that And Mike Malone was joking like you know we may start them at small. Ford made a point guard and you're like. What are you talking about well? I, don't know if replicated it may be the. Highlight of his career. It may be the beginning. Guys. He was. Amazing today! He was always it was fun. He blocked he I don't remember how many minutes he played, but he he blocked six shots. He had sixteen points or fifteen points and ten rebounds but beyond those stats he would. There were times where he would block a shot. Run, the court and beat everybody. There was one time where he blocked his shot through an outlet pass beat everybody down the court for a dunk. Another time he blocked, his shot went on the.

"Howard ends up pawning off Garnett's ring and using that money to bet big on Garnett's performance. Now there's much more to the story in in that but I don't want to get into the details of the plot because I feel like part of the enjoyment is in not knowing exactly where things are going to go once. The wheels are set in motion. Shen now the southeast draw here on techniques that they've honed from their previous films the built about trying to keep audiences in the state of perpetual discomfort and also anticipation nation. They want us to feel the desperation for Howard at all times but also to be interested in seeing how he might get out of each particular jam the restless narrative ends up digging into to our psyche as we see misery filling up one person's life but they end up dangling happiness ever so slightly out of his reach and that makes the agony. All the more heightened and Howard here is not a particularly likable character. He earns all of the trouble. He's in due to his many many character. Flaws and yet there are just enough redeeming qualities qualities. He's kind of that. UNCUT GEM himself that he might be able to find a balance if he could find himself on the right track eventually unfortunately the ability to make a quiet decisions especially when he desperate seems illusive Sandler says during their location shoot on forty seventh street that he would observe real diamond district jewelry. Merchants both at work and in their home to try to get a better sense of his character. All of these people from the district were ecstatic to have their neighborhood. Spotlighted in the film and opened up to the cast and creative crew some of the real life jewelers actually appear in the film in small roles in his extras sandler also studied gamblers and their self destructive habits particularly particularly in regard to what keeps them injecting chaos into their lives in this obsession that they have with the next big wager and Sandler who was once told by. NYU acting acting professor that he should choose a different path. Don't bother acting. He would go on to receive quite a few accolades for his performance in uncut gems. Just as he did with Paul Thomas. Sanderson's punchdrunk love. I believe a lot of the praise coasts on the element of surprise. Hear Sandler does actually a respectable job in the performance he comes across with a sense of nuance although the characterizations of the film they're not particularly deep. This is a movie that keeps going. It's kind of like a shark so doesn't really give depth but it does keep moving and it keeps you interested in that way. I think we're sandler excels here is that he takes a thoroughly unlikable person in the ends up finding ways to make sympathize with his plight of wanting people to be happy around him but his flaws in terms of integrity and is selfish impulses. Get the better of him. The southeast do benefit from what these character actors bring to their respective affective roles and I think Sandler should get some credit for carrying the picture. Even if he doesn't really light up the screen with a powerhouse turn. I don't think that you're probably going to cast him in Shakespearean Theater performance. After this but four sandler it utilizes history books in a compelling way and I think he can actually deliver Whitewell drama. If it's in his wheelhouse and I think that uncut gems does tap into that as well. This is here. Continuing their habit of unintrusive camera. Work often shoot freely while out and about in the actual streets full of real people milling about their business. Cameras were placed in various locations. So that they're actors could walk. Can they could talk naturally without worrying about their positions in the shot or in playing toward any particular camera most often. They weren't even aware of where these cameras were located so they. He gave it much more naturalistic flow. Kevin Garnett I think also solid work. You're playing a fictionalized version of himself. Back in twenty twelve when he was still a very good player for the Boston. Austin Celtics the safeties also considered casting early on Marei STU Meyer who ended up declining. Because he didn't want to cut his hair to what he looked like. In this first year with the Nixon two thousand ten Kobe Bryant was also approached. T was actually never sent the script because the southeast ended up learning from Kobe's people that he wanted to be a director not an actor and the current Philadelphia. Seventy sixers star Joel. EMBIID was also considered to be put into this film although things did not work out schedule wise because he's still an. NBA Player was hard to find a window of opportunity to get him to be committed to the role so they ended up going with Kevin Garnett and had set the film. A few years in the past during the Eastern conference semifinals where the Celtics ended up taking on the seventy sixers the pop star known as the weekend makes his big screen debut here as well and it brief but very memorable seen. He's playing himself a version of himself performing in a club. The weekend happens to be a good friend of the Safdie sees him. He's an avid film fanatic. Kind of Sinophile in his own regard so the ended up writing into the movie playing this kind of Punky version of himself that he felt he was back in the day in the film he performed a live version of an early track of his called the morning before he ends up getting into an altercation with the Jealous Howard over his mistress. This speaking of music some viewers may either be attracted or unnerved by the oversaturated score within uncut gems. This afternoon that bringing in Daniel Lopa ten to to compose the score blending in kind of a rare sound here of the move one synthesizer and it's very dizzying in terms of work sometimes feels in Congress to the drama drama on the screen and adds an extra layer of chaos to help to unsettle audiences from the comfort of familiarity. Does keep you a little bit at a distance and not sure of what's going on very intentionally in that regard like its main character. UNCUT GEMS is going to end up becoming divisive. I think in terms of likability particularly among audiences says that will expect a tidy story with characters that they want to enjoy and building up to a crowd. Pleasing Finale as with punchdrunk love that drew in sandler their fans expecting a typical one of his zine vehicles and ended up getting something completely different. There's kind of a Bayton switch aspect here uncut gems that is going to make some viewers feel like they aren't aren't getting what they signed up for. That's the unfortunate thing about being an actor who has built a brand like Adam Sandler once you step out of what your fans are accustomed to seeing. They're probably ably not going to like it. So like Howard. Rattener Sandler finds himself wanting to break out of being boxed in with expectations. But the people around him don't like him when he does jams. I think is appropriately a bit of a diamond in the rough so to speak. Lengthy sometimes it's uneven but it has so many positive facets that hold the intention throughout even during the moments that are a bit hard to watch mostly because we see Howard make fatal mistakes just when his salvation is within reach. That's so frustrating rating and yet if you're frustrated that means you're really into the plight of Howard we're drawn to these characters and their escalating sense of stakes and that leads to a conclusion that certainly will find in many viewers squirming in their seats. It is very uniquely presented and I think it's incomparable to pretty much anything else. That's currently out there in the theaters. That isn't already directed by surfed brothers kind of intense film at times. It's not the kind of movie that I would recommend to everyone. But certainly if this sounds appeal to you to think that this is a good film and they do recommend it at three and a half stars out of four three and a half stars on my scale means that. I do think that this is a movie that is worth going out of your way to see if it at all sounds of appeal appeal to you. Give it a shot. You may end up actually loving the film in the end. It may take you a couple of times watching it maybe over the years to really cotton to it as well. So so keep your expectation of a knockout performance right off the bat at bay and you find yourself. SURPRISED BY UNCUT GEMS at three and a half stars out of four. Thanks everyone for listening.

"Tom Welcome to one hundred. PM The show where we're interviewing one hundred expert product product managers around the globe to bring you all the actionable advice. You need to succeed in product. I'm your host Susannah product coach and founder of the Development Factory. And today you're listening to how to find your product strategy and exclusive multi episode series featuring Gabe give diddle former VP of product for net flicks. Today's episode is the GEM model prioritizing growth engagement event and monetization to keep organizations align as companies grow product strategy helps teams maintain focus but misalignment especially across product marketing sales and finance organizations. Happens often. One of the biggest causes is differing opinions opinion on how to prioritize growth engagement and monetization the Gem Model Forces Cross functional teams to prioritize these factors and and helps build a metrics focused organization in two thousand five Netflix. Nearly two million members was growing thirty percent year over year and monthly cancellation the proxy for product quality and engagement was about four and a half percent each month four and a half percent of our customers would cancel the key challenge at the time was how to build a profitable business so a force rank of growth engagement and monetization along with the metrics we used used to measure each look like this. So this is the gem prioritization for Netflix. In two thousand five. The first thing that was prioritized was this monetization in monetization was measured by lifetime value in gross margin. The second most important thing was engagement. And we measured this this bimonthly retention even think of this as a proxy for your overall product quality and because of this growth fell third and we measured growth by year over year member growth rate in two thousand five that was about thirty percent based on the forced ranks prioritization above monetization first engagements second and growth third. We put some new projects at the top of our priorities list. In two thousand five. We started retesting advertising. We experimented with selling previously viewed. DVD's to members and we initiate lots of price plan testing. Our priority was monetization to answer the question. How can netflix deliver a high margin business? Eventually we figured out how to deliver a more profitable. DVD TVD rental service through the introduction of lower price plans. We maintained our twenty two dollars a month three at a time plan but added fifteen dollar and nine dollar monthly plans for two and one. DVD time both of these lower price plans generated a higher lifetime lifetime value by two thousand eight. We were confident that we could deliver profitable business and we flip the priority. As we set a goal to achieve twenty million subscribers by two thousand ten we wanted to convince investors we would have a big profitable business in a long-term. Here's how he forced rag growth engagement and monetization in two thousand eight. We did it exactly in that order. We put growth first engagement second and monetization third. It's an absolute flip flip of of what it had previously. been by this point. We had reasonable confidence that we could deliver higher margins and the priorities shifted to growth at different different times in a company's life. The priorities change. It's an excellent habit to reassess the priority of these three factors every six months or so here is product strategy exercise number eleven a companion into this essay thinking about the overall needs of your company. How do you prioritize advertised growth engagement and monetization which metric will you use to measure each now compare notes with your CEO and leaders and other parts is the company to see how they prioritize three factors if the answer is different find ways to debate the prioritization and reach agreement? Doing doing this every six months will dramatically improve cross functional alignment. I hope you enjoy the next essay. It outlines how to bring strategic thinking front and center in your product organization. Jen Gem truly outrageous gem. I have to say that I felt two ways about this because I was like Glee Glee Glee and then it's jammed Gemini. MDA trying to inspire infighting over which of if these acronyms is the best one the most inspirational worst which t h him sounds like like a shipping company the DA strategy could fix it. Okay Gem I love this stands for growth engagement money. Are you saying at the end of the day. These these are the three things and are you also saying at the end of the day that is Order in which they matter. I'm always trying to eh help. Product leaders do anticipate future challenges. If I walk into a start up the number one source of lack of alignment coming across the organization tends to be along in this area so I can ask the simple question. How do you prioritize growth engagement and Monetization Asian and I can ask it in the finance area if I get a different answer than from the marketing of product area? I know. There's a lack of alignment so this is a super simple model generally generally it's good to reevaluate every six months or so. The other thing that I appreciated about it is if you start getting into it very quickly you start start getting into a metrics conversation. What do you mean by engagement at different companies? And how do you evaluate product quality. That's really the question. And now you're having a real metrics conversation which I just find incredibly helpful and then as a leader saying grow up in product in and at some point if you become a mucketty mock like VP product. Now you have to coexist with your marketing partnering you have to coexist with your finance partner and I joked he can no longer say those those bastards in marketing right. But you start to understand. This notion of cross functional alignment and this is one of the models that I just find it the most helpful fool in teasing out whether there is lack of alignment and lack of a moment is really painful. You know imagine that you're rowing. A crucial vote was a Rowers and one side scoring at twice the speed the other side. That's a disaster. And that's what lack of alignment looks like. In one of our previous Cuny's you're talking about those fussy people that need to put everything into puzzles. And I was quiet because I think I might be one of those people and also put all all of this together because I do a lot of coaching on product management. Is You know and I think it's so valuable for people. People are hearing great ideas all the time. The Nano is getting that actionable. Your Essay. Series is incredibly actionable as we've spoken about but I'm I want to make sure I understand how it stitches together. How does jam feed back into that roadmap for those strategies and is it competing with the proxy metrics metrics is it that the proxy metrics should be lathering up to one of these three cornerstone metrics? So I think of it as like a temperature check unhealth. You know. It's everybody line. The example I gave at net flicks. We were going along growth first engagement. Second Modernisation third and then two years later for variety of reasons. We flipped the switch. We actually we need to prove that this is a say we can build a profitable business. We can deliver financial return so we put monetization first engagement Saka and then grow. Thirdly we said we'll accept slowdown in grows to prove out that we can deliver a real business model. Is that when I got my first just an FYI at prices increasing has no actually what we can come back to that. This is early because of that. We said okay. How are we going to make money? That's when we said okay. We're GONNA try advertising. Try Selling are used this. We're GONNA do lots price plan testing so to answer your question. It fundamentally said we're putting more resources against the projects around monetization. We dedicated new. Resources is to other business models. So that's how you can think about the coexistence and your point when you've started to notice that the price increases not flexible. been going up up. It's funny I've thought about this. How do I guess that Netflix prioritizes growth engagement and monetization today? Say It's tricky. Here's my challenge is like a coin flip between growth and monetization because to your point they know what folks value is original Zhol content. And they're trying to raise the prices so they can have the cash to invest more and what customers are asking for. Maybe they're modest. Listen I growth second engagement third retentions at two percent like only two percent. Or cancelling each time the product is Great K and frankly their scale. I probably accept a less clear prioritisation punk startups I will I will accept no ambiguity acuity. These are forced wrecks. or I'll kill you. Right at net flicks is playing a different game at scale. It might get away with having things almost tied. I'd this plays into a framework that I write about called the four fundamental. Tensions of product management. Is this business value customer value if you swing too far into business value too soon shareholder value customer value. Yep Yep Yep get biddle.

It's also the coaches when I was talking about the raptors ninety five. The coach on that team was Jerry. Stackhouse who then became assistant Memphis and now as a full time coach with Vanderbilt. So it's harvesting all kinds of you know. The I mentioned nick nurse and his Assistant Bjorkman was his assistant down in Iowa when they were our affiliate in Phoenix. And you're right.

This was just Kobe going because his daughter wanted to go. And then what I understand is that they were up at the Mamba Academy thousand oaks. Wintom said you want to go to the game so Kobe went to the game and sat courtside.

Unless I last week the basketball universe was a buzz with the news Portland impending signing him Carmelo Anthony endings unofficial thirteen month exile and while yes. We're all excited and happy.

Scouting evolves breaking preconceived notions of. Your player is as he's moved on from who he was when he was. I got it. Finding a draft is like buying diamonds from a mole. Jewelry store binding plan. The League is more like finding your diamond in the rough. It's a bit more work. Not a sexy trust me. You don't want the moines on a Tuesday in February but it can mean incredible resource for talent especially on a budget look around the NBA The NBA's official minor league is in just a source of practice bodies and roster flotsam but actual contributing rotation players on Saturday night right.
