Facebook Dialogue Platform with Stephen Roller
"Stephen Roller welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. You work on dialogue research at facebook dialogue research. I. Think of as a better way of describing chat bots. So I may refer to chat bots and Dialogue Research interchangeably during this episode. Why are chat bots useful? I think it's a longstanding dream in the field of artificial intelligence and computer science. Right? We've we've always had the dream of what if I just talked to my computer like I talked to other people. In converse with them, they would know what are my intentions? Why am I asking them this? What can they do to make my life better or help me along and you know? Programming is fun I love programming, but you know it'd be nice to just communicate with. Computers as well. And what about you? Personally, why are you personally interested in chat bots? Have you pursued this line of work of of all the different kinds of computer science research you could be doing? Yeah. You know I sort of stumbled into this area join fair after my phd where I did work in natural language processing but my my work, my background work was like a little bit more linguistically oriented focused on like the meanings of words a little bit more like what can computers just about language rather than how do we teach computers to understand language? And so you know when I joined. Fair. I was looking for for projects to join projects to collaborate on. So I gave dialogue a shot and it turns out to be a really great ren for me a mix of novel research using using the greatest and latest neural networking and machine learning techniques as well as a bunch of interesting software engineering problems and opportunities for Staley and things like this. What are the domains in which conversational agents or chat bots are actually useful today? What are the places where they're useful versus the places where they're not so useful? Meaning like, what's the? What did they do major? We've actually conquered rather than the ones we're stumbling. Yeah I think you know obviously, you've seen a wave of digital assistance and I think that work is very exciting. a lot of what we focused on in dial in par lay in the dialogue research at facebook is on open domain chat bots, which are chat bots that can talk to you about like literally anything and they're usually not focused on. Accomplishing tasks for you rather like the goal is just to have a conversation with you about anything for as long as possible. So that's primarily where we work and I think we've seen a lot of exciting advances over the past couple years to where I think if you were to try some of these newer chat bots that have come out in the past year you, you'd probably be really impressed with like Oh. Wow. This was further than I. Expect. So I think you see commercially is a lot of digital assistants a lot of success in this a lot of customer service type things when I'm really excited about when I think we've you know where things have made big strides in an big strides in the past year is on these open domain chat bots can actually talk to you about anything. Really so as in I can sit down with a chap today and say, Hey, what's the weather and what is this spot on my skin and recommend me a restaurant that looks appealing. I can do I can ask all of these things of a chat bot today. Yeah. I would put those still in the category of like task oriented Tech Chat bots where there's like some goal in mind like you know answering medical questions or tell me about the. Weather when I really tend to work on and what I'm excited about is these chat bots right so rather instead you might ask what's your favorite chess move and it might go into into detail about like what's its favorite move and why that is or what's your opinion of the fall of the Roman. Empire let's let's debate that. So it's it's it's less about you know what can you do for Maine and more about like let's enjoy the experience together. So, can you give a few more descriptions of what a general purpose chat Bot would be doing? Yeah I think the end game here either. You know wear a true general purpose chapman should do both of these things right? Like if I ask it to to. But Mia, calendar and by then it should absolutely help me out with that where I focused my research is the social part. and. So I think we should see a mix of. The box that we've been developing really focused on I'm having a few different behaviors that I don't think you tend to see any sort of assistant on type chat bots they have consistent persona so they'll have like personalities like. I love basketball or I have. Friends in in the tech industry or something like this, and they can use this information like. Consistently referred to it. You know one of the other attributes that chat bots working on developing and believe Ms really important is empathy bright. So a chat Bot should understand you know as as it's talking with you, what's your mental state like how are you feeling and respond emotionally appropriately to that so no if you say something like my just ran away, you know the chat bots should restall on appropriately with something like, oh, I'm really sorry to hear that have. You say something like I just got a promotion than the Chat Bot should respond Oh. That's great to hear. Congratulations. So responding emotionally appropriately is a really important characteristic of a of an open domain chap on the last one is general knowledge. So you know I think when people talk to to chat bots, they expected to know things about the world some of that's encyclopedia some of its common commonsense reasoning but you know if I ask what's the tallest building in America? You know I sort of expected to be able to have this have this information available to it and be able to answer some questions like that or even integrate this information in in common and common dialogue just oh by the way you know what's what's interesting or you know funny story about that sort of thinks. So consistent personality empathy and a knowledge about the world. These are all things. I think are really important in general demand. You know Geno Purpose Chat Bot. Empathy you mentioned empathy s one of these things that requires some maintenance of context as to what is going on in the conversation. The Chat Bot needs to be able to acknowledge the perhaps sad state or happy state of the person. It's Inter locating with tell me about context how does a Chat Bot retain and understand context in a conversation? Yeah there's a few different ways that people go about it. So one of the more classic ways that people will do and approaches that people will take is they'll do something off dialogue state tracking. So you have like some information about the dialogue like, Oh, the users asking about a restaurant and they wanted to be on fifth street right and you'll have this as some sort of state. That you could do say like some sort of database query about and help them then like when you're doing dialogue research or billion Chapa, the task becomes a lot of like keeping track of that state and updating that state as the conversation goes on. The way that we often approach it is a much more like role neural network fashion. So we just like input all the dialogue context all history as one big stream. You know sort of same person. One said this person to says that person one said this person to said back? What do you say next? So we just treat things as as raw strings and habit. Input that in the model has to figure out Oh, what do we do with fat? How do I respond? Who said what all this has to be from scratch? I'd like to get into. A little bit more of a conversation about facebook. So if you imagined facebook in five years, what are the tasks that you envision dialogue models fulfilling for facebook? That's an excellent question I. Think you know there's all sorts of places where we're dialogue can be helpful to our users. We already have this product called portal. which is a a really excellent product lets you make video calls with people. In. One of the things you can you can do, you can already say like hey. You know call mom. And it starts dialing up on. And that super? Nice, you know some of the other things might be no. As I might have an assistant on on Messenger that that's helping me keep track of what's going what's going on with my friends. You know I might say a assistant you know where the latest updates on my friends and they could. Integrate that information. And you know look through my my news feed for me and say, Oh, Hey, your friend Jim has new photo. He got married right Oh that'd be really cool. So, I think there's a lot of places for for dialogue to be part of FACEBOOK PRODUCTS You work on par lay, which is spelled P. A. R. L. A.. I. What Is Parlay? Parlay is a platform for doing dialogue research. It's an open source platform. It's gotten over one hundred contributors and it's it's got you would need to do to dialogue research so whether that's a collect data set or I want to train a new model, and there's all these data sets out there and I just WANNA use those without without trying anything. I want to create a new new model and I need to compare two baselines compared to other other approaches of people tried before I can just sort try those those different models. It's got a model. Do you know what are the pre-trade models somebody else's released in leverage those when building minute chat? Bot and then it's got everything you will need. To also evaluate a chat, Bot. So you know once you have Chapada unlike a lot of areas in I research it's it's not always clear how to evaluated except the have people talk to it. So we've got all the tools that you need to connector Chapada, Amazon Mechanical Turk and have people chat with it and you give evaluations or give. Performance rating instincts like this. A little bit deeper into the problems that parlay solves for researchers that are using it. Yeah I think quite a few different problems especially in all those all those different spaces you know when you're you're a researcher and you want to create a new data set that you know, let's say you want to create a new data said that teaches the model how to how to have empathy. The thing you're going to do is have humans talk and exhibit empathy and annotate their their their utterances with this sort empathetic information. So we have tools so that you can like creek quickly spin up user interface where you can have that chat where you can annotate that information and sort of build what you need for that. So similarly with evaluation you know I need to connect with the Amazon Mechanical Turk and had people evaluate. You know I don't WanNa have to spend so much time focused on building the UI of this tool or dealing with the engineering of connecting Amazon Mechanical Turk impairing humans together, I. So abstract way from you and when we do that is by treating all. In the in the world as agents so whether you're a data set or Talking to it on Mechanical Turk or human talking to it at your local keyboard or a AI agent everything is agent. So we treat them all the same. This gives us really nice distractions to work with so that we can sort of plug in AI model in place of a human or plug human in place of the model really easily. Parlay makes available a wide set of data sets through its API. How does parley use these different data sets? Yeah, we have over one hundred data sets in parlay. Some of them are from our group some of them are from external groups. And so one of the things we really focus on as a first class feature in. If I want to train the AI that exhibits multiple behaviors. I'm a train, a multiple data sets at the same time. So you it's really easy to sort of say. Okay. That set a data set the set see in start training three of them at the same time and get a model that can do all three of these behaviors on. So that's sort of first class functionality within within parlay. When we were talking earlier about having a model that exhibited the consistent personality empathy in knowledge, we did this with a sort of multitask training as it's called where we train on all different data sets. So if you're a new user or new researcher who wants to come into dialogue, you can sort of take the stock wouldn't data sets out there already and just start utilizing them as needed and if you wanna mix and match behaviors? Hey, no problem. described. The workflow for training chat with parlay. Yeah. So we have a lot of it's very command line, heavy utility or command line heavy platform. So if you want to train a new model, it can be as simple as calling the train model command from the command line and you just sort of say are here the tasks I want here's the model. The model that I want what's the model architecture and things like this? And you know here's the learning rate and all the other neural network parameters and you hit go and start training. alanna researchers went to do a more sophisticated, maybe make a custom architecture or make a custom data set and it's really easy to just sort of build only the part of the data set you need or build only the what's special about your model. She might go right a little bit of custom code utilizing are sort of abstract base classes and things like this. And you'll be off on your way training, your special model, and if you don't WanNa mess with data, you don't have to mess with data you can just use the existing data sets. If you don't WanNa mess for modeling, you don't have the mess with modeling you can just just the data in and start training
"geno" Discussed on In The Dark
"Had passed already three weeks over three stakes now. The weeks seem to be stretching into infinity could you? I'm just on the subject show. Not I enjoy listening to you tomorrow. I'll try and call the court just like gas them. What's going on. I sure appreciate I can give you the tourist Kokin on the next morning. I requested. Gino's case file from the City Court clerk. And then I left a voicemail for Judge Kirk Kindle Murray. She called me a few hours later. And this is Parker. This is Perkins L. Meriva Judge in the Central County Mississippi. Hey Judge Murray how you doing? Hey I'm good I also have. I've got a conference. Call our police chief for the CD OF INDIA. Nola Edrich Hall is also on the line. Oh you're on the line right now. Yes he's on the line as well. I'm merging it either she. I'm here I fall. So can I ask a like a preliminary question 'cause okay so it's my understanding from a CD? Her out. My our Port Clark's that you had made a request for the records of Eugene McShane. Yes okay well. The police chief can. Can you give you the background of of Mr McShane if you would like? It seemed that my random inmate was not so random after all the reason just excellent here not only about the chief U. for right it for years for Tuesday and I worked here for Eight years as well as a as an investigator As a storage and shift the numerous roads Muslim. Mcshane has been a risk that several times. He has had several shop from nineteen ninety. Five through this year Twenty three shots along to hear the police chief described him. Do you know was no everyday sticky fingers. He was notorious and according to judge Murray he'd become the scourge of her little municipal court. Her docket was just filled with gene-o judge. Murray told me that she's not the type of person who thinks jails the answer for everyone when the coronavirus came along she did. What a lot of judges around the country have been doing. She released a bunch of people. Yes when the when the pandemic I began I went out to the county jail and in consultation with India Police Department and with the Sheriff we went through the jail roster and we suspended sentences judge. Murray couldn't empty the entire jail. She was only in charge of some of the inmates. But let out shoplifter like Gino. And a forger and a man brought in for disorderly conduct and a woman booked for assault and not one but two domestic abusers. Why was it important at that? Point to release those folks because for the safety of the people that work at the jail for the safety of of the people that had committed misdemeanours for their safety for the people that are released for their safety. I don't want them in a situation where they're confined to space with other people and you know they. They didn't kill anybody. They didn't like anybody. They just made a mistake they sold. They had somebody's tired of whatever is they. By the time judge. Mary had finished going through the list of all her city inmates. There was just one man who she decided didn't deserve for mercy. The only person the serving time at the city of India. Nola OR MISDEMEANORS MR McShane. Everyone else didn't release. He's the only one in jail now. I think he's the only in. May We have out there serving a misdemeanor Senate. I can't let him help. Not Not with his history. Oh what could possibly be in? This guy's history I wondered. Here's the answer. Do Record as long one hundred and forty one misdemeanor charges over the last twenty five years or so but nothing to indicate that he some sort of criminal mastermind. What kind of tenancies do the records indicate well gene has a tendency.

"You know? He's being Donna. Ready we are the most people who die now. The the picture is different now but this sunny taty crash. We're going you gotta crises but did you. Let's talk for the beginning soon by a team. We've talked testing people with eating. My ourself and quiz area would find seventy percent of the people were positive which has been alarming. Sensing happened two days after when we went to the Bronx Sixty five to seventy percent positive. And they have to come back. Those buildings apartments small crowded woody international and resources. What we've seen today but dot day so many people seek now. We got different faces knowing that through so much pain now leaving now in the position that people had no money to like food doing pro. Two thousand meals a day in different areas to seeking the congestion with Were sent to teaching Our company nightstalkers because we know now fifty percent our people how the only there are less in their pocket derived. That's gone long ago now. We're GONNA do help we all today now. Jobs people lost fifty percent does agents. Yano joins US your job to Gatien. You're gone plus you act to other people without insurance and without papers circumstance. Afraid they had a lot of the with speeding difficult to find their family member. Who die because freight something could happen today. Where was the disconnect in terms of the testing? Why did the did the city miss? I mean how when you say a month ago you were. Testing would not be expecting this given the conditions. And giving the fact that if you were in a multigenerational house if you were an essential worker if you might have more health conditions of pre existing conditions it just seems that everything that was aimed at. Latino community was happening with this so where was the disconnect they nick was already disconnection that we have to stop paying attention on the socially health or their people live in crowded buildings with Russia. You Sam by the person was sick to the building worse than that those you know within minority note and then nobody was prepared for these. Because who has bundy we said life. Nobody deporting arouse went after we know because we knew people were were crying for giving us good. We bets. You May and building anywhere with Alone Hotel Room because we knew we were sending by millions invisible killer buyers. Plus building knows why this happened. So what did you do besides testing? What what did people you. What we're we're some of the people who are getting tested where we're told me some of the stories of the last month that you heard or your fellow doctors have heard or people in your organization of her for so many ways. But let's start with my pommie. How might keep who say's Saudi got Arresting and when when he got sick he was alone leaving apartment. He was long. He bustled hole. Fifteen days buddy They went back to work do market later. Now that's privilege. Let's go in different direction. Somebody call you. We put tele-medicine from the beginning. That medicine by the end of variety was pulling in Muslims. We plus three three songs and Y to educate our people dialing low. We doctors taking ghetto. Anybody who called even. Where did you. Summer's on the Summer Spacey Betty Portent. That's we knew what was going on right now. You has started like a lady who can out after liberty combat home to hold on is dead John No way whereas it wasn't that she even how the way to have a very often favor baber commission if you find your body and you have to make a seventeen donate. He changed now. He's getting better. But at some point with seventy twenty days cremation you. How the money? So it has the city I mean so where we talk about where we are now. What how is this improved? I mean besides the situation of people with the economic situation has this. Has the health situation improved it in in the community or are there still challenges Geno? I called allergy matching POCAR. What we're sending people city to the billing. Does Ron Koch it. Because what they do every day to work beginning in today the subway on they wouldn't papa.

Ninety percent of the people going to endorse you die. I mean there is a very difficult thing game. Nobody knew well. Now we know now. We know what happened there? Now we're not to find solutions together. Find a way to test. That's what I've been saying is nine sixteen. That would best. Everybody does we do our you know. We went ahead of the game. Also when we decide to why are they meet a March Test immunological tests for whatever in the world? You these are the time this is
Attention Capital's Joe Marchese on the crisis - and opportunity - in how we measure eyeballs on the internet
"Welcome to the digital podcast Brian. Marcy this week I'm joined by Joe. Marquel JOE is the former Fox executive who is now the CEO of attention capital an investment firm and operating company. That's focused on those media. Companies THAT CAPTURE ATTENTION. Attention is required. One property girl boss. Jani discuss why he thinks the attention. Konami is in what he calls a state of subprime. And why you can still build an AD media company in two thousand twenty but just not one that's based on. Cpm DISPLAY ADS. Hope you enjoy Joe. Walk into podcasts. I thank you for having known each other so long. We have this is this is Serious throwback here so going back to social vibe you're we're GonNa talk about Social Vibe later. Gay But what you're doing. I mean you've had you've had a really fascinating career. I mean I think when we first knew each other You start up then And you went through that startup pivoted. You did the pivot and everything this you sold it. Yup He had an accent the and then instead of doing the sort of serial entrepreneur route you went in to like a large media organization. Yeah and so You saw the innards of that right and now you're back sort of on. I would say the investor side but something more explain. What attention is so? I mean attention is a company. It's an IT's an operating company It's just a company that's built to buy other companies And and kind of that fit a particular thesis okay. What's the thesis That the entire global economy runs on top of the attention. Economy of which advertising is the most visible market And that the attention economy is in a state of subprime. Okay explain The mets like subprime. Yeah yeah the the metrics that we use to measure Attention or that we used to represent attention or becoming less and less tied to what people are actually spending their time doing so. I think that there's An opportunity right now to say that there are things that have better and more attention or higher quality attention than the metrics give them credit for I mean you guys talk about this plenty and digitally as cover the industry of advertising but in the in the chase of really what we'd call vanity metrics impressions and page views an There so uncoupled from what people are actually what quality attention is and so therefore things that have quality attention are probably undervalued of put simpler We've kind of convinced the world's been convinced by by big tech for the most part that everything can be measured And if you can't measure it don't buy it then that to me makes makes me think everything that's hard to measure is probably undervalued. Yeah but you've kind of been on about this for a while you're right because I can remember talking to you about different like different metrics. Vp and whatnot. Because you saw the problems when it comes to CBC or CPM right And then I'm sure like within than Fox. He saw the limits particularly of of how. Tv is measured. Yeah and and you know it's funny People assume that you'd really hate TV. Measurement as a digital person. Yeah but to be honest like I'm kind of bullish on panel data because panel data. It's hard to fraud Like like I mean they you know. There's there can be entire phone farms. In other countries that Census data like digital data. Pick up but sit at digital guys. Were always an usually. They're all guys. I were always railing against Nielsen. And how terrible Nielsen is and you get to the other side and your leg. Actually this isn't that no no. It's not that bad I will say like look. Nielsen can be inaccurate. But there's not a warehouse full of TV's racking fake impressions right like like panel. Data is a representation of What a certain set of people are doing. And then you extrapolate like. This is how much time we have the. You know. It's all the classic things like every every four there's more ad impressions in the world and digital world. The more people are watching more ads. And Chiavari think we're just trying to shove them in there so this is all true so why in the world of all the things that you would want to invest in would media. I mean it seems like a terrible. I don't WanNa talk you out of it. It's too late to do too late. I'm here explain to me why this is an opportunity so I actually think that I think there's a couple of things that that are huge opportunities right now which is As platforms grow and as as they chased these vanity. Metrics Trust begins to erode right quality. Goes Down I mean look all platforms engineered towards volume not quality. And and what I mean by that is they are if you make something for a penny and sell it for two pennies. You've made a penny of profit if you make something for ten dollars until it for twelve dollars you've made two dollars of profit. Humans like the two dollars of profit that makes sense computers. Say That none of that. Penny one hundred percent margin. Let's do that a trillion times right and that is why you see like some of the largest advertisers in the world on on the major platforms. are selling very low cost goods right so same thing applies to products as applies to news so in this world where trust is a roading. the curator brands kind of become king. Like no one goes to the front page of Amazon negotiating. You don't you. Don't start at the front page of time to go shopping. You come there with an idea of what you're going to buy And I think the great example of this wire cutter right. I mean wire cutter which you know. curates what electronics. You should buy. has built trust with the community Obviously The New York Times acquired a while ago but these curator's in wire cutter I think is to the next evolution of of the web. I guess we're still going at the Web. Go for here. What craigslist was to the window version? and then post craigslist. There was Angie's list and that was a brand being put on top of it. I mean I have something to shock you With Angie did not meet every contractor. Angie's list those are those are television. Commercials Yeah and that's a brand that got built up and why does that matter? We'll because people would start there rather than starting out a search engine or starting an open platform. I think what's interesting is particularly. Let's stick with the wire cutter as an example. I mean people in media. I think love love the wire cutter. I think with good reason Mostly because it's an anti-scale play anything algorithm mic. It seems like is gamed. Yes I mean because when you go to Amazon and like I don't know about you but if I'm buying those like okay the bestseller best reviews whatever and then you're like you know we've written about it you know there's Yup armies of fake one hundred dollars and anything that can be gamed like that will be and that's what brands are supposed to be. So I I'm a huge fan like I am. I am anti a lot of things in the way. Advertising is kind of polluted The Internet and chasing kind of the metrics that don't matter I'm a huge fan of brands. See Brands are the things that you hold responsible for that you trust too right like Brand less like Kind of commodities. If there's you know lead in the toy or they're you know the you know the classic stories of you know Tylenol. An the the brand is the thing that consumers hold responsible when you go to a platform It's almost like you. They're extracting the margin from brands. And I think that there's a huge role to be played in. In consumers minds to be building up brands that can be cures for them for different areas of life. Okay so this was the the the thesis differentiated. Good time because trust is is you know. I think there was that article Max read wrote. It does sort of everything is fake on the Internet a couple years ago. That sort of summed up this this period that you know we were talking over the years right. It was all leading up to this this primis of online advertising See Pile of money That'd be nice right money. It's attention capital capital. So it's a great way nickname your company capital and people like you and I can only imagine So how much what is like two hundred million. I NOT NON reported non real time to to talk. I don't know so. What have you bought so far So first partnered with James Murdoch's lupus systems we bought the TRIBECA Film Festival invested in controlling stakes together and then Girl boss most recently company. Okay so explain. Each of those different types of properties. But why does this fit your thesis? Well so you look at areas of life where people are looking for curation in so tribeca in the entertainment space and girl boss kind of in employment career Lifestyle and so the way we look at it as he'd attention capital is there's two types of things there's community brands so we define a community. Brandis if they threw an event. Would someone get on an airplane and go there Do they permission to curate? Some aspect of the world's tribeca. Obviously they haven't event They literally curate films. They don't make all the films they tell you. Here's what to see with someone. Where the brand on their t shirt. They don't have to be an apparel company but people would wear tribeca shirt and is the community self sustaining without always having to make content right because if you always have to make content. That's a treadmill that you have to run on versus. Is there a community of people who people go the events The thing that gets the most exciting about TRIBECA 's ethos as a brand that was founded after nine eleven downtown. We're here in downtown. New York and And the idea of independent storytelling equality versus volume. Like you just can't see that many movies like we have to be able to curate down to select few all of those things I mean. That's a brand that were incredibly excited about and a founder and CEO. And Jane Rosenthal that we want to work with and kind of expand I. I'm struck that both of them have a quote unquote events component. They're able to turn people out Yup We we are big believers digital so I might be talking my own book cure but we think that there is something to be said about you know and I think people are coming around to about being able to turn out a community of people. Hundred percent We are huge huge believers in in a I R L digital connection real life to digital connection that it's proof that you have that type of influence in the world like versus again factory said the algorithms can be game but people showing up at a movie theater camp. Yeah I mean like you know. I always went back to the sort of game. Of Game of thrones recaps. It's like you know the the reason that there were. So many. Game of thrones recaps. Is I mean it's not just because of like passion or the brand is it's it's because that's what turned page views right exactly. It's entrepreneur right. I don't hate the player. Geno hate the game. I agree on some of the players.

Alcohol has affected your mental health mentally. I focus on your mental health. You show regrets mentally taking mental entity then then today mm-hmm so can we start with. Just how did you realize that you had a problem with alcohol. Yeah that's a really good place to start. Actually because so many mini paypal ever realized. I've got a problem. They drink daily and think everything's Okay and always one of those people. I was drinking between one and three bottles of red wine. Every day often washed down with Basil sometimes spirits and I went on for years the over two decades not realize how to problem and eventually I could see it was affecting me how I was an alcoholic in front of the most important things in my life. Lock my son and my wife my health my career and spent about five years in the place off the being away which was actually being aware I had a problem and starting to realize this was affected my diet to die life and causing causing me problems and always thinking about alcohol too much and that actually led to about five years being stuck in a really radio painful price which was where I was aware but I didn't know what the hell do about an when I coach people I help people quit alcohol-free free my facebook group and I do coaching sessions Away from that as well. I often tell them that. That is probably the toughest Paul on the journey anita to freedom from alcohol. When you're stuck in that place where you just what to do you know you've got all the way to go? How do you ton that was a difficult time for me? And it's you know it's been a long time there and I mean without going into the detail which might be we can dig into a little bit without got into that detail. The tipping point for me was one more than some computer hands were shaking shaking uncontrollably and the next day the same thing can realize that this was affected my health. They always going to end up date. Full the age of fifty. If I carry. Don't do this and that was when she moved for just just being aware.

Now if I service MEL Polls my skin from the booze the auto the night before Detroit take steps to hide it my wife Yes. She was aware of how much I was drinking and she moved from drinking bottles of wine onto wind box. As because I I kind of wanted to hide that and don't really be able to say it in the cowboy Die for what it was. An the winebox is really easy to get Radovan. It opened the recycling of the neighbors. Say when you were drinking at at your worse did you notice. Certain triggers was when he was stressed or is it just constant drinking drinking everyday. Now it was a free died and Juno will always gave myself a raisin so if we had a good diet baseness yeah we we brought on board five new clients. That's the reason they celebrate. Open the wine. If I had a bad Diana client left us a bad review. That was another escapees. He's always have a reason an otherwise. justify it to myself so that one big all it wasn't a binge drinker way EH. That was a particular trigger or a place that set it off. It was just the daily routine. My son would go to bed so not. You couldn't wait to get intimate. which is all for now so that I could get shares out the cupboard and just drink it in his volumes of as much as possible? Oh so now. That wasn't really trigger. It was just the daily routine looking back. was there anything that you are trying to kind of escape from that time. Yeah that's a Geno Soggy marches come to light since I quit his Co. story I particularly in relation to mental health. But I think think I was so suffered from really really bad anxiety is horrific and I would worry about things that never often never happened. Happened and I would walk myself are part of meltdowns about things by myself. Feel better by thinking as a wise the wine join the savage in the tykes the edge of so I think I was coined self medicating without actually realizing all these tough challenging thoughts that were going on in my head and these feelings but the the interesting dimension to this is over since I quit drink him now always being quiet. hyperactive impulsive There's a whole a whole bunch of things on a paper said to me over. The years might go. Gee must've each day and he's been like a running joke since I quit. A lot of the symptoms have been so much clearer a- a- my wife actually said to me suck me down and said no I'm really saying as I'm sayin' in Saga many things. The didn't see when you were drink him because always mosque in it with the alcohol and the quit. Drinking is almost like someone's pope the cutters on these symptoms and not hide from is not covered up now so I actually went for an assessment again long story show and and they confirmed the combined at idea each day an had. I not quit drinking. I would never have been able to sean lawyer lawyer on that or would probably just carried on living as I was an all makes much sense now. The I actually Drinkin- because I had so many things things going on with the idea. Hd as well as the ZOA. Though I just felt frustrated things would get to me. I didn't feel like people understood more House things might fail by was okay because I always had wine in. That always took the edge off and on could always look forward to so again if it was another gift from the Saga Life. The I've been able to know the of got a now understand myself yourself a bit better. Yeah we've been up a whole another angle tons of men to health and so on size not only the hangs is Adhd guy with it is well how do you cope with Adhd and anxiety now. Because obviously it's brilliant give up drinking but it's kind of like you've given up your self medication as well yet. That's so around probably three or four months after I quit drinking the the dog clouds of anxiety that had been with me for probably twenty years or more. It was almost as if they started to fight a wide and it was like the sun-star it in my life again and I was so much more engaged in prison with my son and my wife and my friends and anything that I who is doing and also it actually notice it myself smiling and laughing again. I thought I was destined to become these grumpy old. Man I just thought that was who I was Rosen. How it was gonna be and suddenly things started? Changing anxiety faded away instead of feeling like nine or ten Out of ten in terms of how bad it was it. Just fight it down to like two or three out of ten and yes things do still come up. The Coles may anxiety. Aw that's life but I've now learned to sit with emotions and sit with uncomfortable fade ins off even youtube videos about how to handle those failings Phelan's and worked through them rather than bury the old self medicate with alcohol. So I can now Have something uncomfortable happened my life and three that confounded away with complete closure on never to rear its head again kind of thing. That's that's how it
Browns Make It Official
"We will start with the official news out of Cleveland Scavenge to ban skis hired by the browns. They announce officially on Monday. He's thirty seven. Spent fourteen seasons as an assistant in Minnesota but has never been a head coach at any level level his entire. NFL coaching career. As I mentioned has been with one organization the Minnesota Vikings Stansky took over play calling duties on offense late in the two thousand eighteen season. Minnesota ran the ball. Forty seven percent of the time with Danske asked the play caller. That's the second highest rate in that span trailing only the Baltimore Ravens was introduced at a press conference just a little while ago. I the foremost success starts with people and I know we'll talk a lot about culture but it is absolutely about the people and everybody knows the Harry Truman quote. It's amazing what you can accomplish when no one cares who gets. That's the credit and that's what I believe. We have in our building. We have great people. I know we're going to add to it will hire G. G. M. here in the next week can or two and we're going to add to this culture that that we're building here and we have the right people and again. I can't stress enough. How excited I am the be? Just a part of did you know to use a basketball terms to my dad can understand this. I want to be the point guard for this organization. I want to bring the ball up then I wanNA share the basketball and let so what else get an easy bucket though smiling over there. WE'RE NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA speak anything into existence right now I can. I promise you that we're GONNA work. I've already spoken to a few of our players already. And that's what I'm about I'm about working and I'm about putting a foundation together the other. We will be methodical about it. We will not skip. Step two two and three to get to four. We're GONNA start in the foundation and then we're going to reinforce foundation Shen said we can build upon it and when I'm talking about this I'm talking about schemes and technique will be diligent about working with our players so that they can develop into the the best versions of themselves and ultimately we're building a foundation for what we hope is a championship. Effort will have a culture of accountability. We'll have structures is in place the players will understand our rules. And what we're about and we're going to demanding and we're going to hold each player accountable. Because ultimately I know this about players they they May Not come out and ask you for that. But that's what they want. Well perhaps the tenth. TIME IS THE CHARM IN CLEVELAND. Stansky is the tenth full time head coach Wjr. The browns have hired since returning to the League in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine that is the most in the league over that span of the previous nine. None have posted a winning record. Heard and not a single one has lasted more than four seasons continuity and consistency has been a real issue in Cleveland. Victor certainly something they'd like to you see changes to fanciest step in the right direction. In your opinion will I believe he is and I think that consistency where it is important. And right because you put up that list of all the coaches and the coaches that they've they've pretty much funneled through throughout the years can you provide that level of stability that they've been seeking for almost a year in and year out. Can you provide that for their now. The thing I do like about Stansky a fan ski is that he has experience with creating plays for two star receivers and I think that's something that's going to have to translate over to the Cleveland. Browns obviously with Odell Beckham junior junior and Jarvis Landry and having that experience I'm sure enticed of that for an office inside bring him in and understanding that they got to get the best out of these players in the best out of all their play makers obviously nick included In the backfield now is he going to be a leader of men and he is he going to be able to handle. The Eagles and the different personalities is that are in that locker room. Desk the biggest question that still remains to be seen. It's defense gas interviewed with the browns. Before in fact it's believed that he was the first source of politics but Desta several seasons ago and and it didn't work out. Matt you spent time with him as part of that Minnesota Vikings Organization. What can you tell us right? He he was a young quarterback coach at the time. And so when I got there was actually a little bit older than he was which is an interesting dynamic but at the same time. He's been all around that building. You know he's an administrative assistant and when he started there then. He was a quarterback coach. He's I've been with the running backs he's been with the wide receivers so he's been in all the different elements of the offensive side of the ball. He's seen the ups and downs. He's seen how free agency can impact so he's got a great feel feel. He's a great leader. He's got a presence about himself in the other thing that I think that the Cleveland browns are probably drawn to is the simple fact that this is a very quarterback friendly offensive structure that he's presented presented in for a guy like Baker Mayfield that had had his struggles last year. And maybe some confidence issues. Maybe not though. Let's see the press conference the same time. It's a quarterback friendly. There's a lot of play action. There's a lot of movement of the pockets. A Lotta easy throws to be made screen. And then there's like you said that balance forty seven percent percent of the time the run the ball. There's great balance in that offensive structure in for a young quarterback and going into his third year after some struggles. I think this is a great fit for that organization Asian and going back to when they actually made this higher People in Cleveland were telling me that it was actually his run game because we see what he was able to do with Dowling Cook and how he was able to make become a good player to really a great one and he's a central part of that offense that we now see in Minnesota and that was a big part of it but in terms of now Cleveland going forward looking for GM the way it was explained to me is they really want these to head coach and gm to work as one. This is why they moved on. From John Dorsey Percy and Freddie Kitchens. They didn't feel like this was working together. So they're looking for someone who has the same vision and the analytics department obviously is of of crucial part of Cleveland. And what they're looking for a head coach and I think that's why Stefanski became that lead candidate because he's accepting of it. He wants to be part of that and You know I think I saw some reports out there about how Cleveland is demanding that their head coach presents the game plan to ownership and really the way it was explained to me. It's not so much that they want to see the game plan. They just want everyone to be in sync to go over to make sure they're all on the same page headed into the game. Well you can't blame him and and that is something that clearly was not the case. I think you make a great point. It's poor in that somebody come in and be able to work and mold Baker Mayfield but also be able to be the CEO and run this whole organization and have everybody else be accountable. I think Freddie Kitchens might have had one of those two things that went by the wayside outside the quarterback with the hiring in Cleveland. What it does mean? Is that every chair on the head. Coaching carousel is now accounted for. The browns were the fifth and final team to hire a new head coach in the off season. Three of the hires tires Stefanski as we just discussed Joe Judge with the giants and Matt Raw and Carolina our first time. NFL head coaches the other two quite the contrary contrary Mike McCarthy in Dallas Ron Rivera in Washington they will get a second chance or in some cases third or fourth various established. NFL head coaches of of all the five. Who Intrigues you? The most in their new spot intrigues me is Matt Rule. I WanNa see what really transpires here right. He seven years sixty million dollar contract. That's a big commitment big commitment. I mean we might need to think about going into coach. That's it has everything else that they're also saying that they're making a commitment to Cam Newton with the type of style and the offensive structured. That they've set up McCaffrey's there I mean they've got the pieces of the puzzle there now. It's interesting to see how that that offensive structure from college translates to the NFL. which is I mean? There's been guys like chip Kelly in the past right John Harbaugh's price guy. That's been the most successful but that was more of a pro style offense with the most the most recent Kingsbury in Arizona so cliff Kingsbury. Excuse me it's been a mixed bag. There's no question. Let me ask you this just circling back to something you said by hiring Matt rule it you believe this means a commitment to Cam Newton. Can you explain why why I just think that The Baylor and watching their offense of structure and the RPO that takes place that's run pass options and all the different things that they're well versed in and that the Baylor offense has been historically historically very successful with in terms of that offense of structure I just think that that Fits Cam Newton's game very well and so I believe that that's a statement saying look. We wanted to bring somebody in here that you're going to be comfortable in this type of offense of structure and go out and be able to put yourself in a position to have success extent to intrigue you for me. Is Joe Judge my beloved giants. I think well I just think because going into it. Once I saw the Vacancy Happen at the head coaching position I was all right. The giants are GonNa come in here and get either like a Ron Rivera type or even McCarthy and get a guy that will come in and commanding presence. Once he walks into the building and I think with the hiring of Joe Judge just left me like okay I. It felt like the same cycle almost felt like coach mcadoo a couple years ago when you give a guy a shot and bring him in if he can transcend The coaching position or the year. After that when you bring in Pat Shurmur and you try to bring take a chance on another guy. Felt like we're taking another chance on another guy but granted. I must say I loved after the press conference I loved his mannerisms I love. He literally embodied what the New York Giants Football Organization is all about when he stepped up there on that podium Liam so I say that with a grain of salt because I love the press conference and I think he's going to bring something different than the other two coaches did in the past. But I still left me scratching my head in terms of who was out there here in the type of guys that could've came in that building and commanded a present these guys by the way Matt Rule and Gioja Geno. It's not about winning the press coverage but they did rule who was must see TV. I was just watching. He's missing time with the giants. Who so I knew all about? He's got does I think you know obviously recruiting such a big part of being a head coach in college. You don't mean to recruit You know when you're in the NFL. Which is why? I'm an agreement with you. I think that is the most enticing match COPA or at least the situation of the coaches just because you just look at history and making that jump from college the NFL. It's not easy and there just hasn't been a high success rate there. I think obviously he spent a little time with a giant. So it's not like he's

Why are we all so excited about the black hole image?
"There was so much excitement. This week around seeing the first picture of a black hole. Why was it deserving of so much excitement? Ferriol? I think part of it is that it's a new frontier, it's something we haven't seen before it's something that we didn't even think we could see and it's been so long in the making both the technological developments and the theoretical understanding to interpret the data. So I'm I'm really happy that everybody's excited to see the image. Shep you said in the press conference and even here on on our program that black holes are essentially unseasonable. So how do you explain what we're seeing that? We are seeing one now. Yeah. See there naked. If there's nothing around them, but black holes attract just everything around them because they're intense gravity, and they're trying to get into a small volume that it's like when you rub your hands together. They get hot all the fiction heats that guest hundreds of billions of degrees. So black holes are surrounded by these three D flashlights of this hot luminous plasma. And then there. Gravity warps the light from that plasma into these distinct shapes. You're really seeing Einstein's geometrical gravity laid bare. You're seeing just how light moves along space time yet, Einstein even though he came up with the theory about warping space that he not well, he wasn't really convinced that black holes might exist. Yeah. Got. He did struggle with that far awhile the theory. I mean, practically breaks down at the center of a black hole, it predicts a singularity an infinite space time curvature and energy density. So he was very unhappy with that. And he thought maybe there there's a reason why nature would not form. These objects talk a little bit Ferriol about the image itself. So we can explain to folks because it's it it's not quite wooded appears to be a lot more stuff going on there. And let's get right into the reddish ring of light. We're is that coming from? That is coming from right from the inner part of the accretion flow and the base of the jets so uh ship was saying as this plasma. That's the black hole gets from the stars around it swirls around and makes its way down to the black hole. It heats up and the emission that. We are seeing at this particular wavelength of light is coming from right outside of the point of no return. So there's the event or orison outside of that is the photon ring and outside of that is the the part that that truncates the disk and where where we think jets form. So the source of the light is right in the vicinity of that point of no return, and it is being lens than to the circular shape. Well, that's the that's the question I'll continue with that. Because if if it's a three dimensional image shouldn't that shouldn't it be surrounded by that glowing red, so we should? Not be seeing into it as we look straight. That's a very good question. And it's something that I with worked out twenty years ago. So part of the reason we are seeing it is because it's Taurus shaped, so it's not really completely spiritual. But even if it were we have to pick a wavelength of light that satisfies two things. One is we wanted it to be emitted right near the horizon. So it lights it up. We didn't want something that comes from farther away. But it's a double edged sword as you're saying if there's too much of that light too much of that guess then it will interfere with our ability to see down to the horizon by picking the one point three millimeter wavelength of flight. We're we have walking that tightrope. There is light that is lighting up the black hole. But it is not so much that it is actually obscuring our view to the black hole and ship. Actually, is it not true that that light that is heading toward. Toward the black hole will be bent around the back of it and come forward towards us. So it's still say's still face black that way. Yeah. It's a it's a good idea to try to hide behind the black hole because the light from me will always be bent around when in one thousand nine hundred when they looked at it affliction of light during a solar eclipse of stars to verify Einstein at first the deflation was one two thousand of a degree. And now we're looking at light that does loop two loops. So it's a completely different ballgame from that perspective. And and your Senate very, well, you have this flashlight this this light that's close to the event horizon. But not in the event, of course, and with that means that the latest Lynn's around this last photon orbit all the light grazes this last photon orbit. If it goes a little bit inside there is lost forever in the event horizon. And with that means is that we see a ring, which is a projection on this three dimensional flashlight. But then for example, if there were another civilization fail screwing the Milky Way. They would also see a ring or in eighty seven. They would see that ring to. So everybody gets to see a ring because of the Lenzing Einstein's gravity. Why? Then is some of the ring whitish seems brighter than red. Oh, it's a phenomenon that it goes from what very was saying the gas is moving around so quickly. It's a near light speeds. So when it defends all the way into this gravitational, well, it's really moving quickly. And when material moves that fast when it emits light the light is boosted energy in the direction, it's moving. So you're seeing some of the gas coming towards us from underneath the black hole. It seems like it orbits clockwise around. What you see that? And so it's bright on one side and on the other. So is it like a candle? It's hotter. As on that side to a glows brighter. Brighter. It's not so much hotter. Right. So so the color map that we've chosen is a good representation of how bright it is. So the the parts that you're seeing in a lighter color are actually the brighter parts, and that is the reason is the swirling plasma. So the half of it roughly the half that's approaching us is the sprite or emission. And the part receding from us is slightly damore. Chef you talked about that. There is still light inside the black hole. What happens to that light in their la-? Well, there's no light coming to us from the within the event horizon. But as very sad, you have gas always falling into the black hole at all levels. And it emits you really not seeing anything too much interior to the last orbit which that ring that UC everything that is in there tends to go through the event horizon. We don't see it anymore. It just disappears from our causal existence. But where does it go? Well, that's that's the interesting you Larry. Right. If anyone tells you they know don't believe them. This Stephen hawking spent his life trying to figure that out. Didn't he? Well, I. Yeah. I wanna see I think for many people in in our collaboration. It was. It was bittersweet. We lost even hawking just a little while before we made this discovery we had a chance to describe it to him a little bit which was great and wish he'd been alive to see it. Our number eight four four seven two four eight two five five we have so many phone calls. I'm going to get to them after I ask a couple more questions at a lot of people been asking of can you explain the difference between the event horizon, and you you touched on a bit the event horizon the black hole and black holes shadow. Sure, I can do that. So Geno, relatively not only predicts this point of nor return, which we call the event horizon. But it also predicts the existence of a few other special distances from a black hole. The first one is when matter starts plunging in we call it the innermost stable circular orbits. I know it's a mouthful, but it's basically the last points that matter can be in actual orbits around the black hole. If it's interior to that is just gonna start plunging in next up closer to the black hole is the photon ring the point where the lights does the Luke two loops and makes a really bright image that we are able to see as a as a circle in the sky and interior to that is is the event or Isan. And that's where basically the everything is moving toward the singularity. There. The space time have switched. Signs, and that's where all hell breaks loose. So if we were falling into the black hole, we would know that we're going through these places, maybe we would put ten -cially notice the innermost stable circular orbit. But after that, we're just falling in, and we wouldn't necessarily know that we've crossed the horizon it's for a distant observer like us that's these things become
Justin Trudeau engulfed in corruption scandal
"No one's leaning on the UK's attorney general to get into change his legal advice on Brexit in Canada. Though, the allegation that the equivalent figure the minister of Justice was placed under undue pressure by the prime minister's office is turning into a major political scandal this week for the first time Justin Trudeau the PM try to explain himself. He defended requests made to Jodie Wilson rebelled. The now ex Justice minister to avoid criminal trial for big Canadian company accused of corruption s NC lavender, which employs nine thousand people in Canada was accused of bribing Libyan officials to secure contracts. They're under Canadian law, a conviction would Intel potentially crippling decade-long ban or bidding for government business until now Mr. Trudeau has been a rockstar politician young personable good-looking, the neophyte you took his party from third to first place in the twenty fifteen federal election. Matthew laser in Quebec? Where essence lands based says his image has taken a real hit. If you're not at the rules, for example from this week in Las many points. The liberals were thirty nine points in January now down to thirty four and the conservative for the first time ahead with three five. The main problem here is that when he reacted on Thursday in front of the media did not apologize. It just recognized. There was an issue at he said, he was a breach of confidence between his principal secretary and former attorney general, but if you look at your sides in really things they did nothing wrong. So why would he apple joy on the the detail of this story, the allegation appears to be that this official in his office who has resigned was putting in the view of the Justice secretary, former Justice minister, putting undue pressure on her over this case of SNC level. But no one is suggesting the prime minister himself was directly involved. So what's the problem? Do you think for Justin Trudeau in these allegations in a way, the prime minister? Sorry spoke to as well he met her in September. And she told him she made our decision, and he just replied why once she reconsider everything and checks to do it. So Trudeau was involved as well in it. But the problem is is entire prime minister office spoke to her several times ten times total she's saying that she felt that was a lot of pressure. So this is why we think it tarnishes Troodos image the paradox. I suppose is that it could be quite a popular thing to be seen by many Canadians to have done because by trying to get this kind of deal arrangements that the company was keen on on which the prime minister seemed to be keen on a have potentially safeguarded thousands of jobs. That's the main argument from the liberal party. They're saying that could save nine thousand jobs at risk why. Because essence eleven just said that if they lose the trial there might just leave Montreal and Quebec itself and just go to London. And that will be a terrible blow for the country for Quebec. And why important for the revolt parties because Quebec is their main strongholds? And it's also where Justin Trudeau comes from his the MP of Patino, which is district within Montreal. What you think his prospects are of putting this behind him and actually surviving it it's mitigated because for example, next week to parliament is not seating. So the conservatives and your position, Geno? We not be able to grill the prime minister, and then you'll have the federal budget the following week. And so that might be the main news so maybe managed to put this behind him. But you have to know that the investigation from the Justice committee has not done, and there's also another investigation it's way, but the second one could take month until you have an answer to it. It could happen that this will go behind him. But that's pretty unlikely looking out what Canadians once, and that's the main thing what Canadian want is the truth on this
'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem
"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

I think is what gets lost. I think you have to measure yourself against your peers. And where are you relative to your peers? Are you are you at the top of your profession among your peers?

Was there feeling what's their what's their situation? There's there's either my way or the wrong way. I think we're seeing a lot of that.

I'm trying to teach my players that there's a lot of different ways to be successful. There isn't one way and your way is necessarily the best your wages works for you.

Rocky Marciano is fight for perfection in a crooked world about three quarters of the way through the book. I don't. I don't want to. I mean, obviously, I know the ending, but I, I want to go and take my time with it. You know, being in the talian immigrant and coming over from, you know, from Italy and growing up, you know where my mother and father spoke hardly any English throughout their their lives, and my father passed away. My mother still alive. She's eighty seven, you know, the way we ate at home and the way we dress and the way things were expected of you reading Rockies early childhood. It just brings back so many memories, and it's funny that we were talking about providence which is big part of your life. But providence played a big role in Rockies life, didn't it? It did, and that's how I got onto that. It was really buddy. CNC leading need a rocky Marciano because when buddy was a boy growing up in providence, his father was a doctor and he used to take into fights at the old, Rhode Island, auditory him on north main street. And this was an arena, the Boston Celtics and Bob Cousy played. Their icecapades came in ROY Rogers and trigger to Rhode Island reds, hockey team. And the big attraction was Monday night fight night and providence was the biggest fight city in wingless figure that Boston and in the early in the late nineteen forties rocky a headliner there because he was from Brockton about thirty five miles away. And he was just knocking people out and the local, especially with his talent heritage, loved him. They loved the night, the knockout punch. You know, they had this ritual where he would hit a guy and a guy would stand there. Poise and then collapsed and everybody in the crowd with yell timber. So, yeah, so rocky fought twenty eight times in his professional career, there of his forty nine fight, and it really launched him on the past to the title. Well, as you're doing, you're doing your background on on rocky. You know what, what struck you as. That moment where you know you're like, wow, I would have never guessed that. And people won't believe it. But this is what happened or this, you know, this is how it was there a moment when. As much already knew about rocky. Well, there were three. I mean, the one just understanding how vicious boxing was and just getting really in depth about reconstructing these fight and what it was like and what it reflected about our society at the time for working class people, and then the celebrity nature being the heavyweight champion fifty years ago, you were household name, boxing baseball, where the two big sports in America, and I really wanted to reflect that as well as you know, it's not aimed at a hardcore boxing fan audience, but you know rocky was and what struck me was I learned about his friendships with a lot of celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Jackie Gleason, Jerry Lewis, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, and I get some great stories from his nephews about encounters he had with them. But the other thing was the mafias entrenched control, boxing, and how this kinda hero immigrant on his only way out. You know, the cliche Horatio Alger story is through the ring. But he has to contend with all the corrupt forces run boxing and ultimately help do it in as a mainstream American sport. And that's why I called it..

Undefeated runs, who was I call it? If you don't want to know how do I keep the. Your mom. Hello, I gotta tell you, you know, she's still watches you on TV, but she said that she said, Charles, I like you. I like you a lot and you were, but then she said, but I love the shack. Yeah. Okay. Welcome back ladies and gentlemen to the next installment, latest and greatest installment of holding court, which you know Auriemma this is Gino Auriemma here in stores, Connecticut, basketball capital of the world. You already know that what you may not know is arguably a Goth state people in Connecticut, love their golf passionate about GOP. We have some of the finest golf courses in the world within an hour and a half, two hour drive from stores. One of the biggest events on the PGA tour is the travelers championship held TPC river highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. It has become the number one tour event as voted by the players. And it's the direct result of the work of travelers vice president. Andy beset a former uconn athlete. And Nathan group the tournament director. And I think you'll you'll you'll be interested to hear about what goes into putting PGA tour event together and the challenges from day one when they took over the tournament when it was dead in the water to today where they were voted last year, the number one tour that by the players enjoy it. Do you remember when travelers? I made a decision. To get involved with the PGA tour at at the Hartford. At the Hartford venue, yeah. Yeah. I, I've been a part of it from from beyond before day one. I mean the the Gulf it travels is really a long history back in nineteen sixty. One. We started is one of the few couple of sponsors of the masters and bleed archives. We still have those huge reels of movies compares. We used to send them out to our agents back in the sixties and seventies 'cause TV wasn't what what it is today. Obviously these huge reels. We'd always have four for every year for every masters. Then we ship them around from one agent to another agent to agent, and they would host like masters Ewing parties in the evenings and their agencies for their customers. And so we started out with a master's way back in sixty one. So then fast forward, we were part of it right up through the nineties, and then city group took it over. But but then we travelers were involved through our different companies that we've merged with and bought acquired over the years with the west coast swing. And so I was working with the PGA tour from two thousand two on word up till two thousand six when we decided to take a shot at the travelers championship. So so the PGA tour relationship is really long when here travelers, but in two thousand six, Jay Fishman, our chairman and CEO of the time, and I had a question and had had a lot of conversations around what we wanted to do and around golf. So back in five, we had a consultant work with us to go back and study about like do some research and find out which sport most aligned with insurance and insurance agents. And you can imagine the study came back for overwhelmingly golf..
