How Many Angles are in a Circle?
"I don't quite recall what the specific question was started the conversation but at one point the question was asked do circles have zero angles or do they have an infinite amount of angles. These students were allowed to think about it and then discuss it. Following basic rules of discussion. I found this question fascinating and again. I don't remember where it came from it. Just it was brought up in the natural flow of this conversation now. I do want to specify that by angles We can also call it points as well. Of course a point would be where two lines intersect at any. You know degree. Well i think Like specifically of definitely. What you mean is like because an angled gingras between the three points or the intersection between two lines. Right cry and point is just where they intersect. So you could see every point on the circle as having an angle. Because there's a line going into and out of that now it was cool is is again. This conversation was with middle school students. And we're not grading for mathematical rigor or even necessarily correctness for just grading on pursue on participation. The discussion followed. Like so you can start off with a single point. And then you can add another point with which you can make a line between the two points. You can add a third point and you'd get a triangle. A fourth point would create a square. And you can keep adding points in this general shape and again. I realize we discussed this on previous episodes. But it's worth bringing up again you. Can you know add eight points and create an octagon essentially you can add n points and create an n cited shape that that that essentially approaches a circle. So the argument could be made that a circle has infinite angles infinite

"AM on K G O eight ten. Aaron Segers is an entertainment reporter focuses on popular culture, nerd culture, horror movies, and and the way in which the confluence of some of these topics and he noticed that d'appel gang has been one of those subjects been coming up a lot in in entertainment. And so we were talking about Doppler Gingras. Both is this idea of the the passive sort of modern diluted version of Doppler ganger is being your look alike. But it's not just looking like d'appel ganger is at its core. The concept is a much creepy for a place to start. And that isn't just that. There's another person that looks like you who's wandering the planet. But that person might actually be you. And or a part of you that has become disconnected from you, and it's wandering the planet, and that's kind of the horror of it that you're d'appel getting or might be having a lot more fun than you. You are. And and so Aaron as you mentioned, how this has been seemingly this has become sort of a theme and a lot of different under different entertainment platforms. I I have to wonder why I kind of go back to what one does that wouldn't that happens? Why does it happen? Is it just a matter of Hollywood doesn't have any really good ideas. And as soon as somebody has some success with something of what your other people rushed to duplicate it. Because we saw this with cloning in a clothing became a hot topic and clothing is totally different than than a d'appel ganger. But somehow that often gets thrown into the mix too. But I wonder whether some of this isn't just speak to the two our fractured nece as a country right now that we kind of like like people can't believe the place that they're in. Maybe that's an economic thing. Maybe there's a maybe it's a lifestyle thing. Maybe people are they really track with this notion that there has to be some other part of them has to be somewhere else, enjoying it. Because if this is what life is limited to it's not working. What do you think? I think that that's a I think that's a very fair point. And a great observation. And I definitely think that that is. I think people do feel like they're sort of out of place right now, and they do feel separated from their reality. Or from the reality that they believe that they should be existing. And I also think part of it is kind of goes back to where we get the word Dabo ganger, which is in the late seventeen hundreds. And it was where a character in in a a book by John Paul character meets it exact double and the exact double is sort of doing better than him. And I think that that kind of is relatable and a twenty nineteen cents. Because what do we do every day? We're posting on Instagram on on Facebook and Twitter. And we are we are projecting. A better version of an avatar in avatar or south, right? This is me with a Tiki cocktail. This is traveling. And you don't see the darker side. The sad moment. Or whatever we're projecting the best version of ourselves, and that's not reality. But we are creating these digital doubles. And I think that that speaks to a lot of reason why we are seeing the ganger within pop culture and within paranormal pop culture it. It speaks to this other version of us that we have essentially created and given life to. That's an interesting idea, the the digital double as d'appel gang, or we have a digital d'appel ganger, and there will be photos of us, it replicates our life, but it isn't our life because as you point out they didn't have to take out the garbage the digital d'appel ganger didn't have to show up at work in a snowstorm. The digital double ganger has much more carefree existence, and perhaps the photos are with a lot more red solo cups. The digital Doppler ganger is a little more tipsy than real person. And and that we are we're trying to reconcile these versions of ourselves that maybe we ourselves are creating and the same time. We we we can't always we get ourselves in trouble. Like like, the d'appel ganger is do when they were doing if the original notion of adopt ganger going out causing mischief perhaps is that's really what our digital d'appel ganger can do to us as well as create miss. Jeff by being included in photos that go on for eternity on on the web at this point. And the our digital d'appel ganger will live on long after we're gone. Yeah. And and I mean touching it kind of going back for a moment to something you said in the first segment, you you were speaking about the duality of of people, and I think that this kind of is related to it as well. And it was something that you saw lot in a gothic literature. It was something they tapped into even stories like the strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, this duality of good and evil in the fractured, self it. Like, even during the rise of win when Freud was emerging on the scene and psycho analysis was becoming popular they were kind of speaking about this fractured self as well. So even what you're talking about relates back to that as well. Yeah. So the the hor- the notion of d'appel ganger in. Horror and paranormal horror also goes back to the invasion of the body snatchers, which is a reference I'm hearing all the time these days. And so I I heard it just the other day on good Morning America. Again, people will often reference when somebody is doing something that's out of character. They'll say, it's the pod person version of them or am I have I in Catholic. I heard pod person reference to. To Lindsey Graham the other day when he came out in in in support us, President Trump had said after having spent years he would never support whatever that was a camera Boorda was and he said it and that people like, oh, so there's Lindsey Graham's pod person has taken over. And obviously, I think to some degree that the d'appel ganger is part of that same notion because the the pod person was developed out of the existing person in invasion of the body snatchers. Right. It took just like a little I forget what it was the original thing. But the seed that would that once it went into the pod and the other person would come out, and then even the concept and a lot of horror movies where your pod person or your d'appel ganger would have to eliminate you. So they didn't have the competition anymore, and they could they could completely subsume your life, and you know, science fiction has been science fiction and SCI fi horror has been. Been such a great territory for seeing these d'appel ganger stories like like invasion of the body snatchers. And and and it's really it's a psychological horror because as you say like, the double has to eliminate you. And. There's a movie called the man who haunted himself, and it was Roger Moore. Of course, we know him as JAMES BOND, but in the man who haunted himself, there is a guy and everybody is saying. Yeah, you did this you did that. And and he knows he didn't any eventually asked to encounter his double in it. And it drives him to the brink of madness or even vertigo which is not so much paranormal. But Alfred Hitchcock movies really is like a thriller that involves stop looking and. Yeah, it messes with your head, you know, when you encounter someone that looks like you, and they're telling you you're doing things, and you know, you're not you know, that's not your pushed to the brink of sanity. Right. No under the theme gets used to all the time. And what was what's the original German meaning of d'appel ganger? What is the what does the word exactly reference? It's kind of funny because we got it wrong. The original word d'appel ganger. It was just invented by the author John Paul, and what it actually means. He was using it just say sort of two courses of a meal being presented at the same time. Sort of like, you know, you're at the restaurant. You don't know whether you want to order the eggplant parm or the spaghetti. So you order both. And you'd get to two courses at once by the word he used for a character who encountered his exact double which he meant the name for people who see themselves with actually dot bolt ganger with a t. And then over the course of translation, we we kinda got it wrong. And and another author later on with a big fan of of the concept of Dabo gainers. And she started using not Dopp old. D'appel genners interesting. So really, it just means double serving double serving. Okay. Sounds creepy. Well, yes. And no lake that that I read that. That tweet from the woman who said that she had seen. Which like the d'appel ganger of an ex husband. But it was of him if he had let himself go, and I wonder whether that that also is kind of the same notion is that we have these dual existences or that. We we are always trying to reconcile the road not taken this interesting idea of a sort of a double entree. That that we could go this way or that way. But we we're gonna take a both and see what happens. But only only, you know, it's like Highlander, you know, they can only be one. So what's the where else you, you know, about you you track these things and d'appel ganger? I agree completely has just been one of these steamatic things which I've been seeing a lot more of which sort of surprised me made me wonder about it. The movie us wasn't a big hit though. So what why why do you think it didn't catch like get out get well, actually, I have not been released yet? I thought it was out. Yeah. I it's not coming out yet. It's oh never mind that sorry. I thought it was out in kind of bombed because I'd seen all these ads for it. And I thought it was I thought he'd come and gone. Oh, it hasn't come out yet. So I I actually think that this when this movie is released it's it's going to connect with a lot of people because of the popularity of out. Of course, Jordan Peele brings his own name. Recognition to it. But I think that people will will really relate to this concept. And and I think it's going to be a successful movie. Well, I hope you're right. I mean because I like his stuff, and he does have a lot of fans, I think this is this speaks to the fact that I've seen trailers for this movie going back now like three months, and so I've been seeing the trailers for so long. I thought about it came out at Christmas or something it kind of just didn't go anywhere. It's well, maybe maybe there was a w ganger. Yes, it's possible. Well, I've I've already sort of going this way. So I gotta tell people we'll go to the phones probably a little bit early because I'll be curious to see whether you've had d'appel ganger experience of your own and you want to share it with us. So we'll do that probably like halfway through next hour. So a little earlier than we usually do. But I wanted to ask you because I saw that when you had. When you had tweeted out on the show, you'd mentioned haunting of hill house, which was the the net flicks version, I'm assuming you're talking about. Yes. Well, I mean, I love. Yeah. I love the book, and I love the original movie. But which original movie, isn't it? There's like four versions of that movie. Some of which have been called haunting of hill house and others just ripped off the book without actually calling it that. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. The, but it is a it is a great story. I mean, and and really a great piece of the original novel. Shirley Jackson it heavily revolved around a paranormal investigation. It was a piece of paranormal pop culture, right? Yeah. I thought the Netflix series was awesome. I thought it was really I thought they reinvented it. Reimagined it in a in a way that didn't..

"The episode so what is the role of google in supporting subscription businesses because i know you said before the the google didn't necessarily point publishers in the direction of relying completely on advertising but with policies like first click free google certainly in view of subscription pope publishers penalize them for having subscription it's but that to that actually isn't too if i can take you through what happened there was just not an accurate characterization i would say look your average executive at google does not understand the news business any more than your average news executive understand algorithms at tech companies they just don't right there are people like me and obviously i think there are more folks there now who understand that nature of that beast so it's not like they were saying ten fifteen years ago oh subscribe suck well it's an open environment get enough reach advertising dollars maybe it'll all work they just didn't ever think any further from that first click free he was the origin of first free by the way at the time it was created there were probably fewer than a dozen paywall properties right but they were struggling with a policy that we haven't searched it continues to be a policy called anticlogging which basically says if you want to search engine to index or content you have to show the search engine the same material that the user will see right for the obvious reason you know i can put up of green vegetables and sell you powder to make you live to one hundred and fifty well a paywall technically is cloaking in the sense that it showing the user a snippet of the article in not the full article and what they preferred is for us to index the full article and so what we said as a work around was give i click free and we'll take an index everything right now over time that changed and certainly we got further wisdom in the last several years of studying this and again thanks to more collaboration with publishers in this case the new york times in the financial times we did a bunch of analysis we did a bunch of experiments because what we were concerned with i was very comfortable saying let's go to flexible sampling whether it was very uncomfortable with is is publishers not fully understanding the dynamics in getting themselves into trouble because if you very quickly went to a hard paywall which happened in some cases the wall street journal flip to a hard paywall they said we don't like your first click for you we're going to a hard paywall well they harvested some immediate gain circulation uptick but that a longterm significant drop they're still trying to correct for because guess what they taught their users they taught the users of google anyways to look at wsjcom url as pay walls in didn't click it's a learned behavior so i was very concerned as well as the team we were very concerned about how do we go with flexible sampling in give appropriate guidance to publish it says they can experiment and find the right level the right level is typically not zero you know maybe if you're a very niche publication that has very high value content but if you're doing general interest news coverage you have to provide sampling here as was always the case right it's just that you samples happened in different way in the world of print you put you put free copies on the seats of airline planes you know and you made it easy for people to pick up a copy for twenty five cents before you try to get them to a full subscription same thing today so just to build off that so google has long been involved in the monetization for publishers thanks to doubleclick thanks to add sense and so on and so forth most of it on the advertising side now more publishing is going towards a multi revenue model that involves subscriptions of.

"The head of the page for adds at the bottom of the page that might not ever be seen there are smarter ways to do this so it is again classic tragedy of the comments in that individual participants whether they recognize it or not or damaging the commons and i think that's basically what's happened with the ad in bonn so what mistakes you think were made at the beginning of the web publishing industry that were sort of feeling the effects of right now are publishers are feeling the effects of right now when i think of that in particularly in the context of news publishers i two chains of thought on that one is which i think is absolutely case is that many publishers and i don't say this is a criticism i was there and i can go into the details on that with publishers did not recognize the internet was an entirely new marketplace of ideas and information for too many years twenty they thought of the internet as simply an additional means of distribution for the content products and business models they already had and that was a devastatingly bad lack of assumption on their part understandable see craigslist yes and i say that understandably because put yourself in the shoes of a major say newspaper ceo in nineteen ninety seven or eight when his cash cow or her cash cow is classified advertising coming out and reporting to the analysts on the street for your quarterly call and saying oh by the way we're going to give away eight out of the ten categories of classifieds because this guy out in san francisco named craig newmark with this really ugly site that's basically going to destroy our model how could they do that you couldn't do that so i think it's understandable big my second thought on that is it's not clear to me how much it would have mattered because in introducing the internet in putting the printing press in everyone's hand we did create this vast marketplace of services and information in what's really changed for the news business model is human behavior in if you step back simple example if you subscribe to a newspaper in one thousand nine hundred five us subscribing to the internet of your community it was not interactive but it was the interview community was everything you needed to live your life and i don't mean the city council coverage if i wanted to you know when my dad wanted to buy me a used car when i turned sixteen he went to the classifieds of the providence journal when i graduated college and moved to dc i found my first job in the classifieds of the washington post my mom fung recipes for sunday dinner in the food section of the paper right we all looked for movies to go to on a saturday night based on the reviews and ads we looked at in the newspaper all those behaviors don't happen that way now right and if you just unbundle it all good unbundle right and i just asked people those questions i don't try to explain it in terms of economic analysis anymore just say no tell me your kid just turned sixteen where you going to buy us car for them and no one's going to say the newspaper they're going to say i'm going to craigslist or i'm going to what oh scalp twenty four in europe or wherever that might be perfectly understandable right in fact interestingly so the behavior's changed in the model obviously deteriorated because the model was largely based on those behaviors of soft content access wasn't about hard news was about the soft content and that generally has operated in fact classifieds i find it interesting when people make comparisons today when people say oh the platforms google destroyed the news model industries it is so it is so deeply incorrect does it just didn't happen that way behavior's changed in specifically if you look at classifieds which by the way with thirty to forty percent of the revenue of the typical newspaper in the united states in pretty similar outside the united states that's not even considered advertising anymore it goes to the marketplaces you know if you do an analysis no one says oh money spent on craigslist is advertising it's not it's a marketplace but what about the one thing that publishers didn't stay true to which is charging people for access i mean they charged people to get the.
