All evidence points to the Big Ten being the best league in America for a second straight season
"Today, turn our attention to the big ten where I have Iowa winning the regular season title while Norlander has pegged Illinois as the. Favourite and Wisconsin to finish second. So let's start there. Norrland explain to me why you're being totally disrespectful the frame McCaffrey to Luca Garza to this public research university that was founded in eighteen forty seven at CBS sports me Jerry Paul David all have Iowa in the top two but you and strong JAL cow bone have Iowa third in the big ten. Explain Yourself. This is gene wilders Al-Matar we're talking about for crying out loud. Oh, there we go. Something tells them you've been snooping around the Iowa wikipedia page. That's where I get all my goodland ACM forty, seven trivia gets on. What's the oldest institution in the Big Ten? Let's let's what do we think it is big ten rules. What's two oldest one founded first? What's our guest founded? I I'm running through right now I'm going to say it's Penn State Penn. State's your guests I'm going to go. I'M GONNA go man is a tough one I'm going to say. That's a good one. I'M GONNA say Michigan I'M GONNA Michigan sealed list no idea by the way no idea someone chips someone pleads tweet us and let us know I don't know when the oldest we could. Actually we could go and look through all the wikipedia pages in real time here. But let's let's make a fun quick podcast here you want to know why I have. Iowa. Third I'll let you WanNa know what that's what I want. That's what you want to I'll let you know that I talked with Sam visine yesterday good old Sam. Who May who may appear on this podcast remember never know it's always out there. He actually asked me where I have Iowa in my one, two, three, fifty seven and I said, well, I'm GonNa have them in the top ten but I'm actually going to have them behind. Illinois in Wisconsin. He goes. You're absolutely right and I don't know how many people are gonNA. Agree with you. But I'm with you hundred percent and the reason why is this this team has the preseason national player of the year and Luca Garza it's got a great talent and Joe Camp. Jordan bohannon terrific Khanna McCaffrey. Great. But defensively, there's enough there that are not there that I'm going to. Just sell a bit on a twenty eleven team from last season ninety, seven defensive efficiency at Ken Palm. I like Wisconsin's overall team just a smidge better smidge and I do like Illinois I think he's GonNa be the best team in the big ten. So I love that we have we need some more genuine disagreement on the podcast here I've got Illinois definitely as the as the best team in the big ten and then Wisconsin and then Iowa. But in the Grand Scheme of the sport, I, think those are three of the ten best teams in college basketball. We agree on that have Iowa fifth in the top twenty five in one. Illinois six and Wisconsin Tint So. You know. We're all in the same ballpark and I do think you can reasonably despite. My anger at the top of the podcast I do think you can reasonably have those three teams in. Any order as for Iowa. Five players last season start at least twenty games all five or back plus they get Jordan Bohannon Beck, they finish twenty third at. Kim. Tom. But they were 97th in defense of efficiency and quite clearly if you're trying to look for a reason why Iowa isn't actually going to break through and make the final four for the first time since nineteen eighty. Where you start is on the defensive side of the ball ninety seven defensive efficiency. It's hard to be great when you are that bad on the defensive end of the court,
Breaking Down the Busiest Day of Earnings, and Whats Next for the Markets
"Well the alphabet bouncing back in the third quarter among big tech. Of course, it has been the underperformed the pandemic. Now, seeing outperforming the after hours core advertising revenue returning to growth after its first revenue decline in more than two decade history that was last quarter key is what the company sees going forward. On this point they didn't really give us much CFO port telling me that they did see a broad recovery and advertising this past quarter, and that was in line with the economic recovery. But she said they're still uncertainty on the call. She said that there are signs that user behavior is beginning to return to normalize levels everything else guys was strong from Youtube revenue to play to cloud which revenue forty, five percent going forward. Co. Sender. said that they will further breakout cloud as a reporting segment so that investors can track aggressive investment and progress. Of course that reflects clouds growing importance to alphabets, overall business, and perhaps the competition their lost the guys I would just note that there have been at least two questions on the DOJ lawsuit and increased antitrust scrutiny which has been building around the world back over to Melissa Deidre. Thank you. Depot with alphabets results, Tim Seymour. This as Deirdre had mentioned had been the laggard going in among the big tech science for the year, a laggard versus its peers laggard, versus the Nasdaq are we setting up here for? Dairy. Say a Golden Age for alphabet. Well, the profitability I look at the the the massive beat here on the bottom line is very encouraging for Google shareholders who've been a little frustrated and yes. If I had to sum up earnings of the big four here, there's no question that the response to the share prices is is a function of really where these stocks have come from not come from. I I love the fact that Youtube is now five billion dollar business. I think that's going a lot higher the fact that the cloud is three point four billion to me breaking out, and if you look at all these separate businesses in addition to the core search Juggernaut, which is showing no signs of weakness at growth backup close to ten percent. So yes, Google is way too cheap at a time when the three other copies were. Talking about and even facebook which struggles on the low end evaluation scale have re rated and Google has not and Google really I think took a major step here, but it's about breaking it out too bad transparency and I think that's part of what we're getting there I mean the saying that it will from this point on breakout cloud gene seems to be a very good sign a sign of confidence in the growth of that business. It is I think it speaks to a bigger opportunity with the stock. We talk a lot about search. We talked a lot about cloud breaking out. Cloud is an indication. You know they WANNA get more at illuminating other parts of business, and of course, there are other beds. This is not above the fold and the. Today but I think any investor who is buying Google right now should pay close attention. They've got some gems in there. Other pets around longevity around the future transportation sensitive in flight, and so I think about this the numbers it's nice to see the swing back in the growth rate snap back to a normal level for Google, but I think it sets up A. Very. Simple. A narrative around Google, which is stable core business and other beds which could provide some upside of the multiple years to come Karen I, want I want your take on Alphabet I'm wondering if this confirms, we already believed about the company and its valuation or if this makes you feel like it deserves an even higher valuation than you. Thought Twenty four hours ago. Feel like Mike Pence. There was just a fly there I think that it does deserve a higher valuation remember Google has one of the biggest cash hoards ever and so we saw a little bit of by back here. I think about maybe about eight billion I'd like to see them do more but this is really a validation and remember Google has much more exposure to the travel business obviously travel. Is. This is not where you want to be right now, and so I think that they're going to continue to see improvement it should be higher. It's actually been surprisingly weak. So if I didn't own any, I would probably buy some even up. It's hard to buy something up this much but I would want to own it because this is an extraordinary business and there's a lot to like remember this. Is An. Evolution when Ruth pour out, got their sort of grown up and then she started to show broke up the two businesses. We started the at more clarity will get some more on cloud. So I really like this
Transforming Clinical Trials with Digital Technology
"First. Let me congratulate you on the publication of your new book. The patient equation. Thank you like it was pretty exciting to see it in print. We're GONNA talk about clinical trials, your company Meta data, and the opportunities to capture data differently and reshape the way clinical trials are conducted. We're in this time where virtually everything we do is generating data. There's a proliferation of new means of capturing data in real time from a healthcare perspective. What's the opportunity before us to improve health and particularly the diagnosis and treatment of disease So I think that we've and somebody's Kobe nineteen is putting a magnifying glass on top of this but we've we practiced medicine pretty much since its inception by looking at data in very short little staccato timeframes. So you go to your doctor and you have your blood drawn on that particular day at that particular time You tell somebody how you were feeling that particular day at that particular time or at least try to recall how you were feeling for a period of time. But certainly wasn't something it was proactively measured. We we we get our gene sequenced and we find out what what actually happened at the moment of conception in terms of setting up our genetic future. Yes. Yes. In some diseases, obviously cancers is a perfect example, your genes. Do Mutate individual cells, but we're we're pretty much dealing with the same genes that we had over all our forty eight, forty, eight years ago. I've got today. So that is the context of thinking about what ails me, what is the right treatment for me and it's these little moments in time and I think your point about data Zuri will put its discount streaming around us everywhere, and whether it's the technology that's in our pocket or on a wrist or. Maybe things that are biologically more feasible to do not just from my know iphone perspective but can we start to monitor with medical grade sensors overtime or even just expand the dialogue with our doctors? So those conversations can happen anytime I think the big difference is that we're gonNA start to see these continuous where we actually see rate of change not just these single moments as part of how we think about diagnosing disease managing disease making sure people are getting the right treatments. That's a giant paradigm shift. That again, we've probably been waiting for literal millennia to have happened but I think we're about to to really live through that scales pretty exciting. You speak broadly in the book about the potential for data to transform healthcare I wanted to focus on clinical trials specifically. But before we do that, perhaps you can explain what metadata solutions does and as a way for listeners to understand your visibility into this world short I actually got extremely lucky in my career. If you go back twenty five years ago I thought I'd be researching one kind of cancer probably looking at maybe one gene in it. For the rest of my life and actually frustrated by the infrastructure that was available to run the research that I was doing. So how I would connect what we were doing in the laboratory with the records for patients who were volunteering to be in studies that we're working on a how he took that and turn it into something that we could publish from an academic perspective all that was very slow and cumbersome, and so with a few friends. Gins. Now, twenty five years goes when I was doing research about. Twenty years ago, twenty one years ago with friends we started what is now data and it really had the the mission of trying to help us get things from that laboratory stage into the hands of patients who are waiting for them by trying to connect all the people and all that data in a much more seamless way in a way that would allow us to accelerate the biological the medical revolutions that we were trying to power and terms of something that would really generate patient you simply put. We started connecting everybody over the Internet and we we started by connecting the professional. So people who were working scientists physicians. Statisticians that people in the life sciences, world and medical centers. Professionals Online. And this was back in the day when the only thing you could buy on Amazon Dot Com was a book. So kinda dates us a little bit but really if we can buy a book online, why can't we run our clinical trials online and and basically that's what we did fast forward twenty years and we realized a of course over the course of time that not only could be connected professionals, but we could connect the patients, and now I could we connect the patients who were volunteering to being these research projects, but we can actually connect the research projects. To each other as well. So everywhere there was a time barrier everywhere there was a systems barrier. We realized we could overcome that and create this kind of. Continuum, of data across everybody who had the same mission of getting new therapies into the marketplace, and that really has resulted instead of me being in the lab. Looking at one gene one cancer for the rest of my life. As I said getting very lucky and now I get to look at what's happening
The secret to happiness during a miserable 2020 lies in science
"All right. So just gave me the short answer. How does happiness work? So there are a lot of misconceptions about happiness. We tend to think that if we find the perfect job a relationship or make a lot of money that's going to be what makes us happy. But really the science shows that are circumstances like how healthy we are what job. We have actually don't matter all that much when it comes to our happiness and real happiness doesn't mean that you never feel a negative emotion because of course, you're going to face problems in loss in your life but really happiness means accepting negative emotions and having skills to manage and cope with them and use them to make better decisions. Later, riots, there's no the idea that there's a silver bullet that guarantees happiness. That is just a complete fallacy, right? Exactly. All. Right. So you looked into this and There are a couple of things that you you brought up. There's this term that you have in your store that the the malleability of happiness if you sort of dig into that a little bit more, what does that mean? Yes Oh, there's another misconception that we tend to have about happiness, which is this idea that it's just built into our personality in you can't control how happy are but researchers have found that this really isn't true. Either and there's one popular theory that says that about fifty percent of our happiness is determined by genes, ten percent life circumstances, and then forty percent by our daily activities. So that might not be the actual breakdown there some controversy there but it does get into this idea that's pretty widely accepted, which is that at least some of your happiness is within your control and you can do things each day to change how happy you are. That's that is good to know especially after this year. It's very interesting this breakdown and then you had a couple of references to. Things like. The be able to measure you know five being five percents happier from a scientific perspective. How do you measure happiness cause? It feels so subjective, right? They're definitely different ways. The different researchers do it. There was one class at the University of California Berkeley called the science of happiness and they were measuring students, self reported levels of things like sadness, stress, loneliness anger but then also things like amusement enthusiasm, affection, sense of community and kind of taking all of those together to form why happiness based on all different facets. Got It so. Talk about the guidelines for chiefly happiness because you've got a breakdown of some. You know some really relatively easy to follow tips to to chief more happiness especially this year definitely, the biggest factor affecting happiness this year any year, all the time across multiple studies is social connection. One big study called Harvard Study of adult development found that close relationships with spouses family friends community members was the biggest thing keeping people happy throughout their lives and also physically mentally healthier at makes sense since you know we've we've largely been disconnected from most of our friends and founders share like how do you in the in the midst of in the context of this global pandemic in? Fact that we really can't each other how how do how does someone? Achieve that happiness. In, this kind of altered reality that we live in, it's a question, but it's definitely still possible. The researchers told me it's more about being intentional about reaching out to people and spending time with them. In the way you can, which might be a zoom call or phone call or taking a socially distanced walk but it's about knowing that those people are in your life and the quality of those relationships, which is something that you can keep up over long distances and I think that's really good advice because too often were were kind of stuck in our own world. I know I'm. Mike Media family are stuck in this apartment and there's almost a bunker mentality given all the things happened this year. So it's a it's a good reminder go out there and actually engage with people three of which what are some of the other. Tips or things we should be doing to spy or happiness. Another thing you can do on a daily basis is random acts of kindness, and that could be for people in your home in your family or stranger on the street or coworker on a video chat. Just doing something that will make someone else's Day a little bit brighter ends up giving you a psychological benefit in return knowing that you helped make someone happier and the biggest thing there is to kind of vary what you do. So maybe you make your roommate coffee one day maybe you compliment someone's NASC at the grocery store the next day too small things like that. Actually have big benefits for us to one of the other big things is learning to express gratitude, which as you say, can't feel Kinda hard to do in these times but just the simple act of writing down three things at the end of every day and reflecting on them that made. You happier that you're proud of that day, which can be something really small like had a good chat with my friend or Finished project that has been shown to have a lot of psychological benefits and just making you remember that there are good things in your life. A couple of the other things are practicing mindfulness, which I know you hear about a lot meditation apps and all of those things but they really do have a benefit for helping you kind of recognize emotions in. Let them go finally. The biggest thing is just really learning how to practice self compassion as well. One of the researchers told me that especially in the US. In the West we kind of very part on ourselves in self critical and when we do face a setback, we kind of beat ourselves up about it but one way to do that when you do face a hard time to kind of think about yourself as if you were talking to a friend if your friend lost their job, he wouldn't say, wow, you really suck and. Better luck next time. You'd be like, Oh, well, you know that was just one time and things are going to get better for you and just thinking of things more that way have some compassion for yourself.

Music from Russian Operas
"Hello I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics, for? Kids That's the pollen is from Modesto oxy's Opera Boris, Godunov, today music from operas by some other Russian composers. They call me Kyle Glinka, the father of Russian classical music. You hardly ever see Glinka opera Muslim and Ludmilla, but you hear the overture all the time. Well at least loosely, Ludmila has been performed. That's more than you can say for some operas. Lada flopped twice the first time a Russian theatre s four different composers to collaborate writing a combination opera ballet that Malaysia was never performed. Then rimsky-korsakov who was one of the four composers recycled the music he'd written into a Milonga of his own that Lada lasted all of six performances. If you've been Mada is a funny title. Sergei Prokofiev opera called the love for three oranges. The love for three oranges is about a prince who finds the princess he loves inside an orange one of three oranges. Love is a big problem for the title character in an opera by Tchaikovsky called Eugene on Yagan. A girl named Tatyana in love with you gene on Yagan but he doesn't fall in love with her until it's too late and she's married to someone else the two of them always seemed to be meeting up at a ball. So Tchaikovsky put plenty of dance music including this waltz into his author. Part of Modesto Resorts Skis Opera Boris good enough takes place in a Polish court where they do a Polish dance, the pullen his. Another Russian opera with famous dances in it is by Alexander Barra Dean Borodino was a professor of chemistry who only got to write music in his spare time. His only opera was prince eager in which the prince eager gets captured while fighting the pile-up Ziems. The best known part of the opera is when the Pelosi enslaves entertain prince e core by singing. Dancing. Ardine died before he could finish prints eager. But two of his friends who knew how he wanted it to sound finished it for him. One of those friends was Nikolai rimsky-korsakov whose flight of the Bumblebee is far more famous than the tale of Czar Sultan, the opera for which he wrote it. You can definitely hear a flying insect in the flight of the Bumblebee. From flying bees to dancing pelotons, I hope you've enjoyed this week's music from Russian operas.
Where does the US economy stand right now?
"Big Picture where does this economy stand right now? The economy is recovering, but it is absolutely not through the wilderness yet We've seen unemployment come down really sharply it's it's down to seven point nine percent as of September, which is you know it was at nearly fifteen percent back in April. So that's pretty solid and rapid recovery but that said seven point nine percent is so very high unemployment, we've. Still got millions and millions of people out of work who had jobs as recently as February, and there's still a lot of progress left to be made getting those people back to work helping them make up for the income that they've lost over this period and making sure that they can this get back to two regular economic life to the extent. Possible. We're going to get a report next Thursday the I look at third quarter Gross Domestic Product. It's going to be a big bounce off a really bad bottom and there will be much made of it frame that for me would you in terms of where this economy spent? Well Republicans you know will be very excited. They'll be talking about You know how positive this report is how it's demonstrates that the economy is really bouncing back. As you said, though it's coming off of this of this low it's going to be important will hear a lot of economists saying you need to look at the level, not the rate. So we'll. We'll see this this percentage increase as gene mentioned the level. Of GDP is still way below where we were before the pandemic there are still millions of people out of work. So it's important to think about it in that context and I think it's also important to remember that we have more recent signs that some of that momentum that we had over the summer has stalled you know getting the initial. Waves of people back to to the jobs you know the employment gains we've seen so far the way to think about those are sort of the easy pickings. If you will. You know they're there wh- sort of an easy big bounce when businesses that had been completely shut down. To reopen but I think it will take much longer from here on out to to see more improvement.
Walmart sues government in pre-emptive move ahead of expected opioid lawsuit

Willy Woo on Why It's 'an Extremely Great Time to Buy Bitcoin'
"This was quite weak for Bitcoin and crypto in general with pave announcing that it will allow it's three hundred and forty-six million customers to hold bitcoin ether and other cryptocurrencies as well as use them to pay pay. Pals Twenty six million merchants. Avenues the price of Bitcoin shot up briefly flirting with thirteen thousand dollars. What do you make of PAYPAL's news? yeah. Well. It's very much significant if you were to look it on chain, exactly how many people actually holding the coins in the Wallet? Well it currently is only twenty three point four million holds on shade and if you count the exchanges, these one, hundred and one million. Active unique accounts so if you look at cal, it's all mice five times it's four, hundred, eighty million. So you know this the absolute unlock to the mainstream Mac here to excess bitcoin. Way In excess of what we currently have in numbers. Before that news broke, you had been tweeting a bit about how bitcoins price behaviors have been changing. One of your tweets showed a chart of coin dormancy against the bitcoin price and you tweeted dormancy is a measure of old hands selling out as interesting to see old hands reliably sold tops. Until this present cycle, they sold the bitcoin bottom at three, three, thousand, four, thousand dollars they are selling right now. So when you say this this present cycle, what time period are you talking about and why do you think the Behavioral Behavior Fall Chances. Changing. This this is the current cycle of the coin cycles. Every four years because the happening that's kind of impulse of. Of supply reduction, and so we get into these four year macro cycles in this particular cycle is interesting in the we had the fist. Through of exchanges with the lights, of bit mix. Introduced in the telling twenty seventeen and with the crazy leverage is these guys can do on these exchanges they. They have dominated the volume on. Against you know the the organic sputnik people would normally come in and by the coins move muffins the wallets. So when you've got this out live, Oh, you on derivative markets where traders cabin and trade against each other. They play a whole lot of strategic games. You Know Defensive Lines I. It to playing a game of gridiron where you going yards and you're trying to push the other side over the they back trace in. So we're in this era of derivative dominance where it's trade a game. So you see if you look at the chat of Bitcoin, we had this very nice organic. Movements and price. It was very effective fundamentals of visas coming in, and since twenty seventeen, the telling twenty seen really coming into twenty eighteen and into now we've had a crazy whip sore in the price action. It's like you can see the six thousand sort of band that we head and twenty. Eighteen in it plummeted down to three thousand. That was all trade against. On. Exchanges and so what I think's happening is that the old hand Wales, the Oggi's that voted to Bitcoin, wipe win, and the obviously highly capitalize in the boys being out of cell tops the not currently equipped to play the very sophisticated trade games that helped him unto exchanges. So that not selling the top selling the bottoms right now. and. So I don't fully understand. You know when you talk about this kind of game. What is it? You know just from? hodler perspective, it should be. You know something straightforward. You buy low you sell when it's high. So what is going on? Exactly that's keeping them from being able to do that. You know this obviously is a hotly you'll going to organically by and hold for long term sort of held that if you these terrific of exchanges. All you're doing is making bids long shore the prices, go one way or the other, and if I'm correct I make a lot of money in. So what actually happens is there if you see, for example, the gene rural market, the general traders which of unsophisticated traders they may be going long. So if your though the winner. you'll the whale onto exchanges and the winners team to be one to the Mac out according to picnics ninety nine seat lose. you're the guy with. Tens of millions of dollars of what we call Ammo. To bad to push the MAC at one way. So for example, if you've one's going long. And I'm the one percent. Well, I'm going to choice it and I'm going to sell and I'm going to sell in the NFL I may even sell on spot exchanges to to push the price down and I'm trying to push the price down below the defensive line of people going long because if you going long you bidding on a going out, but you do have this. Line in the sand where if you're wrong, you're either liquidated will you have a stop loss where you can a sell out both both cases you're going to sell out? So what the whales do is they they counted trade you they pushed the price below your offensive line, and at that point you have to sell in and then suddenly the price plummets and then thou- group at the bottom and they win and so you know that happens with your long assured the the ninety nine percent lose, and this is a derivative. Casino game. With with they're very smart sophisticated players. That have now entered bitcoin is completely breaking headache

Hot-button words trigger conservatives and liberals differently
"From UC Berkeley, Stanford and Johns Hopkins University's scanned the brains of more than three dozen politically left and right leaning adults is they viewed short videos involving hot bottom hot button immigration policies. And for more on their findings, we turn to the KCBS Ring Central News Line and talked with Yin Chong Leon Post doctorate fellow at U. C. Berkeley's Neuroscience department and the study's lead author. Well, thanks so much for being with us. If I understand this correctly, you are suggesting through this research that there was a neural basis to partisan bias and vocabulary is part of that. Yes. Well, first of all, thanks for having me Jeff Patty? Yes. So we can conservative and liberal meaning participants. They watch these videos, and we saw that neuro responses to watching the same videos with different Suggesting that these parties are suggesting ah Nero basis for these partisan biases, and we were interested in on the words and that tend to trigger these different instruments contest. And what we found was that words related to threat to risk to morality and emotions tend to drive these different simply speaking. What do you mean by a neural response? So what were well, the thing is that, um we basically the participants respond differently to the same video. So in the sense that when you when you see that when you When you watch a video, your brain responds to the particular way while we see if they consider this response similarly to other conservatives, liberals respond similarly to other liberals. But the difference is between the groups have different. So if I'm understanding things correctly, you're not suggesting that there is an inherent liberal or conservative genes, so to speak in the way we process there. It's once we have sort of formed our opinions. Our brains react accordingly. So in our study, we can't really speak to the genetic genetic basis of these differences because we scan a doubt and we've only scanned them once. But, you know, I do want to emphasize that the differences that we see that we found in the study could very much be deal, too. So that we're having been exposed to different media sources having different beliefs, and it doesn't necessarily have a genetic basis. Yes. I find it very interesting that you thought the key the trigger was vocabulary right and not images. I mean, part of the part of the Ah, that part of that might be, because that's the sort of analyzing the video that we use. A lot of them were news reports that contain basically people talking about issues and not just showing images of those issues. So I think that might be one reason why linguistic content state such a strong role in the study. But if we want the show videos of, for example, a protest things might be a little bit different, So we don't we don't really know if that would be the case by at least in this study with the videos that we use what we saw what that the difference is really more just a result of the words that we're using in the video. I'm so curious. Is there a way to turn this around and say, Can we use neuroscience to the benefit of trying to bring people together? I think there is there is such a possibility. I think what we have now, if in the study is a potential in your old Marka off when conservative and liberal leaning people process the same content differently, so we can try to do is use it.

The iPhones 12
"Mike, yes Lauren Mike, are you going to upgrade your iphone? Well have an iphone. But it has five gene. Yeah, who cares? Let's see if we can answer that on this week's show. Hi Everyone. Welcome to gadget lab. I'm lauren good. I'm a senior writer at wired and I'm joined remotely by my Co host wired senior editor Michael Cholerae. He who does not have an iphone hello from Pixel land. And we're also joined by wired senior associate editor. Julian Chicago to who has like seventeen different phones on him right now. Hey Julie in below my desk has like six phones on right now so. So today we are talking about yet another apple event this week apple announced a new iphone twelve, actually four of them and a tiny smart speaker, and these are the first iphones with five G. which matters doesn't matter doesn't matter yet. We're GONNA talk about five G. later on in the show what you need to know about it the challenges and rolling it out across the US and whether you'll even be able to connect to five G. With the new IPHONE are calling. We'll night is going to join us later on for that but first, let's talk about the phones themselves. Jillian. Phone has championed edges. Let's get that out of the way. That's probably the most important thing here, right? Okay. But obviously, there's more than that what stood out to you most about the new iphones twelve as someone who takes a lot of photos and tests the cameras on phones a lot. A. Lot of their camera upgrades. We're the most exciting thing for me and and I really like how a lot of those camera upgrades are kind of for the most part. All across the entire lineup from the 699 iphone twelve mini, you're getting the same main camera that they improve the aperture on as the iphone twelve pro. But for the most part that iphone twelve pro, you get these new features like pro raw, which gives you the ability to edit. Raw photos and also get the benefits of apples, computational photography, and that is just someone something that's really exciting for someone who takes a lot of raw photos with my camera just gives you more granular control over photo editing and also the other thing is they're bringing night mode to every single lens that's on this phone. So finally, you can take a Selfie, at night and not have to worry about it being too terrible, looking or grainy. So overall I think the entire suite of camera features on the entire range is pretty exciting and pretty dramatically better than what you had last year on the iphone eleven. And tell us about some of the video improvements to yes. For the improvements, they added the ability to shoot HDR with Dolby Vision, which is you know apparently the only phone that can do this and basically lets you get this program cinematic looking effector or look. You could say with all of your videos at ten bits of it's like super high quality. It just looks really good. With the option to edit the colors and have really good cinematic looking video as well with the iphone twelve pro you there have this improved stabilization system that moves the sensor itself. So basically, in fact, you're getting something that feels and looks much more high quality than ever before, and again, this is somewhere where apple leads compared to every other phone manufacturer except maybe Samsung is pretty close. No one else does the ability to shoot video quality this well, and it's just every year. It just seems to be getting further and further away from other companies even like you. Google. Pixel phones that take really great photos Mike what did you make the event? You know my favorite thing that I saw this week was the mini, the small phone small phones in general are exciting to me. Our colleague Brian Barrett wrote this week that the arrival of the iphone twelve mini is a harbinger of good for the small phone community I think you know fabulous when they came out what was it like eight years ago or so we started seeing these gigantic phones and then. People really liked them and they started them in huge numbers. So phones just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. We've all been waiting for phones to get small again, phones have gotten smaller, but they haven't really gotten small enough, and now this year I think phones are starting to get just about small enough to satisfy the people who are looking for small phone I was out last week two weeks ago at A. Socially distanced event and I saw a guy with a Sony experience x to compact, which is like a really tiny. It's even smaller than the iphone mini android phone and I asked him about it. I went over to him six feet away and I said, Hey, what is that and he started going on and on about it and the way that he was talking about it was so passionate and I realize that. Like okay. You know what? There is a huge market. People are really really passionate about smartphones and people are GonNa flip when they see the mini I think coming until November So I, think for people who really want it. They're going to have to resist clicking that buy button for a couple of weeks
Why is it so Hard to Lose Weight?
"It is hard to believe, but this begins our seventeenth year of broadcasting, dishing up nutrition. For seventeen years every Saturday or most Saturdays I guess I should say. We have shared up to date nutritional information. Designed specifically to make a difference in the lives of our listeners and their health. So, each week our message has been about eating real food like that's the term. Now I think that we can kind of put our stamp on his eating real. So, that our listeners our clients can have more energy. Less, than for inflammation, better health and everything in between. So it isn't a message about the latest fad diet. It's about eating a healing plan of real food. This is just kind of an interesting observation and Clint Brittany. Maybe you've noticed this in clinic here in there but I've noticed with some of my clients at it seems that many people seem to like blame or really attribute many of their health problems to their genetics. Yes. I, agree with that Yup. And they haven't quite made that connection yet that food the food that they're eating is the cause of their health problems. So as Dietitians we work one on one with clients, and so we'll hear things like my father had diabetes. So I know sooner or later I will probably have that to or maybe it's my mom had arthritis so I will have it eventually also. one. They heard I think recently in the last week or two My grandmother had Alzheimer's disease. So I really worry that I also get Alzheimer's disease. And it is important to know our family history. What is in our family history? I mean, we even have this in our health questionnaire, an area where people can kind of talk through or list out what's in their family. But, it's also an important an important concept I think to say, the family history does not have to become our destiny. And we can be like, maybe we have some predispositions in the background or tendencies one way or another, but it does not have to be our destiny. So true and I think that what oftentimes people don't think about is you know maybe your dad had something your mom had something. And now you do what? About your lifestyle? No, you probably have a similar lifestyle. You know a lot of our habits come from childhood, and so I think often times it is more lifestyle and your food choices driving. Those conditions than than genetics yup absolutely I'll say that to my clients do it's like you know we probably especially as younger children ate a lot of the same things growing up as our parents did. So how much of an impact did the foods that we were all eating together then have on the development of some of these conditions it's kind of food for thought. That A lot. and so for you listeners out there maybe you've also said to yourself, you know I must come from a family there must be an obesity gene there because my dad was overweight his mom was overweight all of my brothers and sisters are overweight and now I'm starting to gain weight so it just must be baked into our destiny must be in our jeans. Though the question, we are going to address this morning on the show is, why is it so hard for many people to lose weight they're going to go through a couple of things per pretty much two main points that will address throughout this show. And maybe maybe you is a listener of this is something that you've wondered yourself and maybe you've said yourself, well, why can all my friends lose weight just by drinking less wine or less soda or less XYZ while I can't lose weight and I never even drink wine to begin with it's just not fair. Yeah we hear that time Yup. So. So this is these are the kinds of things we want to explore in today's show, and before we dive deeper into our topic, I want to introduce myself and my co host WHO's here in studio with me. My name is Leah Klein showed I'm registered and licensed Dietitian, and here with me this morning is Brittany Vincent who is also a registered and licensed Dietitian. And today, our goal is to share some new information but also some old information about weight loss and our hope is that you will really think about the information we're going to share with you about weight loss and perhaps then be able to take some that information and start. feeling out in applying in your own life where it makes sense for you and applying this to your own body. As we all know, it's one thing to know the information, which is what our show is about a lot of times you want to give that information out and make it as widespread as possible. But then it is a whole other thing to actually apply it and to do it and. Teaching choices are hard especially like you said of these are things that have come from our childhood. These are habits that have been deeply in green, and oftentimes this is the hardest part for people.
How Chicago's Death Alley Got Its Name
"By I decided to restart my day took a shower here. We are feeling good feeling in feel like I'm in the driver's seat. Good. Good. Yeah. That's a lesson forever and restart your day whenever you choose if you're not going the way, you want it. You get to restart it whenever you want and hydrate. And hydrate I'm going to a separate now. Everyone with us. Wasn't that refreshing. So before we get into the history of the Pittsburgh playhouse. Mercedes who again today script wrote us a little introduction. So without further ado, let's get into says. Introduction. She writes I love Pittsburgh. It's my home city, and in my humble opinion, it's one of the top two best cities on the planet. It's a place full of life and culture and history, but it's so small unleash that it tends to fly beneath the radar for most I grew up loving the city and knowing that it has a lot to offer when it comes artistic expression August Wilson, famously loved the city his home city so much that he created that connick Pittsburgh cycle it's an amazing city so to me, it just makes sense that if ghosts were real, they'd want to come back to hang out in the burgh I love for a little longer guests I love that you really heartfelt starts episode Mercedes. I think I need to go to Pittsburgh have you been now? Road trip I how far far could we drive from here? Yeah. I don't think it's far I think yeah I don't know. No I think. We'll take our stark reserves. Okay. So the history of the Pittsburgh playhouse. By Mercedes okay. The historic Pittsburgh playhouse originally on craft and was not so much a theater as it was a collection of buildings that were brought and then turned into theatrical spaces. The first of these was acquired in nineteen, thirty four and was formerly a German Social Club. This building was bought as a wedding present by Richard. Row for his wife Helen Wayne their stories actually very cute. So Richard. Fell in love with Helen when he first saw her perform in New York, his family was super rich and well-known Spanish factors in Pittsburgh. So he bought the location for Helen to give her a nice space to act in Pittsburgh. He basically did this so that they could live there together and she would feel fulfilled even though she wasn't a Big New York City Act trix actress. On that's so cute. Matching someone just give. The building. Just so that you can. Live in the and like feel like you're a big time. Yeah. I get jobs. Yes. Okay. So that their names are Helen and Richard Richard and So. With that, the Pittsburgh Civic playhouse was formed not just by Richard and Helen. It was a group of artists making up the company but like the rows. Oh but like the rows were moneybags. playhouses. Next purchase was an adjacent house to act as a lobby for what was then known as the Roth eater. The first performance in this theater and lobby space was in nineteen, thirty four. The playhouse was fairly popular in the thirties and forties staging productions of Noel Coward's private lives in Thornton wilders. Then new our town during his l.. Then new. Oh. I would like to, I. would like to live in a world where. Still felt new. During this, the playhouses signature leading lady was, of course, none other than Helen Wayne row, which seems like a pretty sweet deal and I'm jealous of her whole situation getting a sugar daddy to basically launch her acting career. Mercedes. SPEAK ON A. So the stage also housed musicals and featured a little known dancer choreographer just months before he would get his big break on Broadway you WanNa. Take a guess Fred Astaire. Close. Close. Oh Who Does skin I don't another dig her come on. It's obvious. Gene, Kelly. of. Yeah. Gosh. Okay. But I've heard he's like Not Nice well, did he like demand rehearsals like over and over again tell people bleeding? Yeah something wacko on in singing in the rain like I've brought up seeing in the rain on this podcast before which is funny. Okay. So that's NEAT I didn't know Gene Kelly was from. Pittsburgh neither that means Jim Kelly Okay Mall from the Burgh. What a gorgeous dancer what? Does little tap into. All right. Moving on. The third building that was additives Hodgepodge of theaters was formerly the tree of life synagogue the congregation moved to Squirrel Hill. I have to stop. I have to stop Squirrel Hill. Sounds like that sounds like a horrifying like like scary movie of chipmunks and squirrels like like. or or Blake dream. Yes my partner like squirrels. Okay. the congregation moved to Scroll Hill in nineteen fifty, one in this space was acquired by the playhouse making up their largest theater space. The Rock wealthier underneath the theater was a restaurant known as the playhouse restaurant. A former ballroom turned ice cream parlor. Cute. Wow. They're out here like setting up a small town. Lot of they got a restaurant. So there's three theaters. All connecting. So like spaces. Yeah. It was the playhouse restaurant, which is a ballroom to ice cream parlor. Got It. So you want got it another local Pittsburgh or to get their star at the playhouse before becoming a household name was one Shirley. Jones. I don't know that is. Listeners You do but I hope you do if you don't Google it we will. Profess, she performed in the playoffs. Many times Okay. Walmer says love that fact but. I feel like we're GONNA waking up in like feel stupid or something. Yeah. Well, another Pittsburgh native who has a history at the playhouse, oh? My Gosh is Jeff. Goldblum. We love chuckles literally Jeff. Goldblum pits. Pittsburgh playhouse butter boop. Out by I love. Jeff. Jacob Blue, that's the best I can I gotta wash him. Once when I go on benders watching Jeff Videos I can get that I can get that down pat? I can do really well that was impression to have like just in your back pocket it is it is when parties come back in twenty thirty I'll be sure to have perfected that party trick. Apparently, his first acting was done with the children's Cedar through playhouse junior an educational opportunities where children received professional training on a professional stage. Mercedes wrote feel free to have Goldblum here I would like to but I don't know why I love You love yes. We've why sorry I just I we did watch this show. But I'm just saying like outside of like that show on Disney plastic everyone by the way if you're busy plus stream Jeff. Goldblum show it's incredible but. I Love Jeff Goldblum I want his his interviews on Graham Norton also highly recommend every interview on. Yeah. True. True. Just pivoting entirely too grim noreen. My favorite episode did US maybe we are together. So don't get mad at me but did you watch that episode of Jeff. Goldblum the world according to Jeff Goldblum by the way is the full title did you watch the episode where he goes to Jeff Goldblum Day and gets like a tattoo like he'll give some tattoo people are getting Jeff. Goldblum. FLASH TATTOOS DID YOU. Know I didn't. But I've seen I've seen him Like. In an interview talking about people getting tattoos of him. And it's so funny. It's like I feel like we should be our next to you remember when we had just left London and somewhat some artists like installed this giant Jeff Goldblum statue on like Phil Lot on the lawn outside the the bridge theater setting somewhere around there and they had this like Gorgeous Gold Statue of Jeff Goldblum laying down like he doesn't Dross Park Oh. Yeah and he's like young his shirtless Yeah Walnut list but tank top or whatever no just a button down but it was like not buttoned half a Oh Anyway so you shouldn't. Superstar. He is he's got to love him. Okay. We're going to move on because this isn't his show but if he's listening it can be your show, Jeff. He's just sweet. Just send us an email. Go slight see the me calm your show. Can take over. So. The theater began to struggle financially and was acquired by point bark. Point Park University in nineteen sixty eight the playhouse continued to operate now mostly for students for many years this way this wasn't a perfect fit though the buildings of the playhouse were old and not originally intended for theater. They were also much farther from Point Park's main downtown campus making the playhouse more trouble for the school than it was worth in late two, thousand, eighteen, the old Pittsburgh playhouse buildings crafts avenue were demolished as the spirit of the playhouse was moved to a new home. Oh, that's a bummer. It's like cool history. The new Pittsburgh playhouse complex is located on Forbes and fourth, and while it may not have as many ghosts lingering as the old buildings had it is at the very least a space that was designed and intended to be used for theatre. Sad. Sad. Okay. Well, moving on things the hunting section of the Pittsburgh playhouse. We gotta get my my spooky vocal but We also Halloween town reference. Have you sir. Familiar. Halloween town. Longtime ago. I know. Collectively, Judge Lino, she was not raised on D. Calms and it shows in times like this. There's a wonderful line that Debbie Reynolds has when she corrects her grandson on how to make a ghost noise like make it like this out of a ghost sign it was one of the daughters anyway she's like she's like she says something about it being like like lower and more melancholic
