"In my reaction as well. Yeah, absolutely, because at the end of the day, this is a really tough situation. We don't know if Giovanni Rena was actually the one who asked for his parents to do what we already know happened or exactly. So we don't know the behind the scenes. What we do know now is that, yeah, I agree. It's an important reaction from Hudson, but my question to you is how in jeopardy is now joanie reyna's career. With the U.S. international team and in general, you're not worried. No, no, not at all. Listen, the U.S. miss national team doesn't have the luxury of turning away quality players. Certainly not. The player with the highest ceiling, probably of any player. And it's him in March for the U.S.. Absolutely. You bring him in, you see what he's like with the players and with all due respect to Anthony Hudson? You're a caretaker and you're doing a very good job of doing these things, but it doesn't matter what Anthony Hudson gives the federation in responsive what he sees because ultimately whether Giovanni stays or not is not up to Anthony Hudson. That's a reality. Whoever the next coach may be or the next sporting director, that's going to be on them. Anthony Hudson right now is just following suit doing his job. If so, I mean, it's a very obvious job from my perspective. Somebody should have checked on him. Obviously it's not going to be Greg berhalter. It's not going to be Ernie Stewart or Brian McBride, who's next in line. It's Anthony Hudson so it makes sense. But at the club level, are they checking on him? Just in a personal level. Because they could pick up the phone and ask the club what's going on. But there's nothing like going straight and getting the answer from the horse's mouth. Gio, what's going on, my man. Why aren't you playing? What's on your mind? What do you think? What do you feel? Because geo can very easily say, well, you know what? Mentally I'm not there with my injury. If that was the case, or it could just say, man, I'm not getting on the field because have you seen us play? We're winning. They don't need me on the field. I scored three straight goals and three straight games, and then the next games, we don't get scored on. I'm not on the field. We keep winning. I don't have arguments to get on the field right now. That could be another thing. And honestly, if his hands are tied his hands are tight, but you talk to the player. Yeah, what I'm thinking now is that maybe Anthony Hudson if he doesn't call giorno up can use this as an excuse. If he's not playing. He's not call up Jill Reina. There are some questions to be asked about Anthony Hudson. That's very simple. What are you doing? One of the most talented players, the camp of the U.S. men's national team, the setup, the pool does not have the luxury of turning quality players away. This is one bad string of results away from being a disaster. You're a laughingstock and an embarrassment for how things went down in the landscape with Greg berhalter with the Reina's. With Ernie Stewart and the federation, Brian McBride and his exit, all you need now is a string of battery results while you have this interim and something happens like you don't qualify or something happens. You don't even make it to the finals of the nation's league or the gold cup for this to go sideways. You don't start by trying to force her hand or make a name for yourself by not calling it in Giovanni reign after Anthony Hudson. I just hope that this drama doesn't get in the way of a talented player, like you said. That's what I'm worried about. From, yeah, from Giovanni Rena. You can't forget that he's because. He's still a kid. Yeah. And I don't care how good he is as a footballer. He's still forming himself as a person. And it's a lot of pressure, especially in today's social media world to turn on that phone and see everything that's burning about you. Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. That's where we saw everything kind of just unravel.

We still suffer because hell. Yeah that's for sure that tell you that if you care and you're really trying to do that extra good job you get so caught up in all that and you carry out. I remember thinking after. I got away from even what i did because we did a lot of hanging out in bars taina bar to bar time. Because that's where you see people coming and going as very trying to figure out who people are. Maybe can even start talking. Maybe make a friend in the bartender. That barmaid and eventually start debrief them a little bit. They don't really know they're telling you something but they are in spend all that time.

I was doing some other things. Along the way with some mafia guys from the old world from italy that came over here and i was doing some stuff locally in new york and new jersey. So give me a story out of your book that one of those early cases where you start getting in when somebody. When i first got into a quick one that i explained when i i i made my bones bureau and became a certified undercover fbi and one of my cases now on a big stage like playing ball minor leads as opposed to the major leagues.

You can't intimidate these guys. Gotta let them be the beg us. That's where my persona was born chichi long ago. That's interesting about setting back.

"This is probably one of the most common questions that we get high charlie. I've been listening to you for almost two years in infos amazing This is from giovanni by the way. I have a question. Are there any options to deny the vaccine. They are requiring it at work. My husband is a deputy sheriff in. We'll just say in california.

Even according to the cdc so i do believe natural. Immunity should be taken into account but even according to the cdc this idiot would have is not flying for three months so it makes no sense. It's complete collectivism. And all of these people the same people who who did in holland and said trump is leading us to authoritarianism.

Thrilling Action Makes up for Flat Sci-Fi Story in Outriders Game
"Tim. This this is one of those fun ones because over the weekend outriders has been has been blowing up. There's so much talk about when it comes out writers and so i pretty much condensed most of the outriders news into and outriders early impressions round up because a lot of sites don't have their final reviews out but so many sites do have they're either reviews progress. A few sites do have final reviews. And then there's also other things to talk about when it comes to outriders instill so story number. One is the outright review in progress roundup. Of course the game came out on. Was it thursday thursday friday. At the end of last week he came out a. I'm going to start off with ever hearing cova at screen.

All the game has areas that needs to improve the core ideas and game player. Still incredibly strong making it easy to overlook whatever flaws are present. It's also an easy game to recommend for both solo players in groups of friends looking for a shooter dive into together and because of the world here mechanic anyone with any skill level can jump into outriders and have a great time with a handful of hours left to go in the main campaign. That doesn't appear likely to change then. We have giovanni cohen tonio at digital trends. Put an article titled out rhetoric review colon. Thrilling action makes up for a flat. Scifi story people can fly isn't being deceptive when it distances outriders from other games. But it's hard to blame anyone for drawing comparisons with needless life service. Dna baked into it. The game is won quite short of being a duck justice his protagonist torn between torn between a human and altered state. Outriders occupies a strange middle ground between old and new game design. Isn't they dented. Crisis that weakens the current experience.
The Impact of Australian High Performance Computing in the Coming decade
"Joining us in the podcast. Today we have professor shawn smith that director of national computational infrastructure and see i and he's also a professor or computation of nanno matera science and technology at australian national university. Professor smith is also a fellow of the royal australian chemical institute a fellow american is association for the advancement of science a fellow of the institute of chemical engineers and he will be sharing with us the highlights of high performance computing at nci. Thank you professor for joining us in the podcast. Today i thought we kick off by taking a look at the evolution and development in australia. Research backed by high performance computing and data infrastructure which plays a pivotal role in national research. But also have wide ranging economic and social impacts. I'm so for example as you pointed out in your presentation at supercomputing asia Looking at the year two thousand twenty the events challenging for many with the pandemic but particularly so for australia with the bushfire which i thought i very salient. Examples of where policymakers and help provide as neat fayza reliable information to get a sense of what is yet to come to better manage the situation but beyond these examples is also cancer research. Physics et cetera. So for our listeners. Can you tell us more about you know audi australia. Research are backed. By high performance. Computing infrastructure have evolved over the decades. You certainly are one constructive way to approach that question. Jain may be. If if i summarize the way in which australia to tijuana one phones compute facilities have evolved over the past decade which gives a flavor of how that the sick to hebron australia has developed in the major demise signs that have been really key in driving it forwards so we have to tier one facilities in australia One is the australian at the australian national university campus. Here in canberra the other one is the posey supercomputing center in person west australia. So both of these centers were set up in their initial in the current model as it were nearly a decade ago and when nci was stood up in its current form. The australian national university has long long history of computing. But the carrots. Nci was put in place around about twenty eleven two thousand twelve and we build a new data center on campus and put in the previous supercomputing facility which was called ryan now when i was set up with financial input from the federal government. They then we're really looking for a degree of leverage of their investment And so the federal contributions to were helped to facilitate the standing up of the big facility and the big shane And the new data center per se and they contribute a certain amount of our national expenses. But i asked us dan to negotiate the larger part of operating expenses. With am i just stike holders. And in the case of nci. This was done by substantial collaboration with four major organizations. I was the australian national university. Which is our organizational host. It was the csi. Giovanni australia and the bureau of meteorology so the one university into three big government agencies collaborated in a way that allowed to build out and develop and the common thread across those three. Big agencies was really climate weather simulation and geospatial science earth sciences and so for example the the great majority of large-scale climate modeling research is done at nci. And it's done. In collaboration between the bureau of meteorology the csi and the university sector which has some substantial activity also in that mind so nci became if you will the collaborative sandpit that these organizations could actually work together on very large common data sets in degenerate very large data. It's through the simulation work and the the other component of that was with geoscience australia. They are the secretaries for the international agreements which bring labs scout satellite imaging data four alpine out of the globe down to australia and nci was tasked to work with Jason social strata. To figure out how to host is enormous data sets and make them there in available findable so forth and accessible and utilize -able

"Of the most striking things that just jumped out at me all the way through your writing and and writing about you and all the way to the latest volume of poetry published in two thousand thirteen is how from the very beginning you were held and cherished and taught by courageous loving women <hes>. Your mother you were named your first name as yulon right yeah. It used to be when when mommy passed i <hes>. I had it legally changed the nikki. Just because that's what everybody knows me. I would have never done when mommy was here. I wouldn't. I wouldn't want her to think i didn't want to carry her name. I'm rhonda junior. So how old were were you when you change your name legally ben mommy's been dead ten years so sixty two something like that sixty three years old. And how do you say your grandmother's name. Lavinia lavinia lavinia lavinia. Emma lou watson. Also that you were all sounds like foodies before the the word had been invented. Oh grandmother was a foodie and grandmothers. Friends were foodi. And of course i ended up. Living with grandma not ended up but <hes>. Was was fortunate to live with grandmother. so <hes> mommy was a good cook because she was grandmothers daughter and <hes>. My on an was a good cook <hes>. Living with grandmother <hes>. And i learned all of their tricks. My favorite was of course greens. And i'm still still still working on that because working making greens is one of life's difficulties. Just clean them and stuff. Well mommy mom and grandmother to you pull than to tie the stems and you put the leaves in and he uses stems to flavor and then you pull it out and so she was very good at that but the other thing. I was laughing and laughing about this. You didn't ask him about this. But in grandmother's day you know used to go the market and you bought a live chicken. Actually grandpa did the the marketing and he would bring it home and they put it in the backyard and then grandmother would go out saturday morning and we its neck but you learn to learn to do that and i guess i have learned to. It's something that i'm dealing with on another kind of level but for something to live something else usually dies. There's there's a transition is not something. I would have been able to even to say to you at <hes>. Even fifty years ago my twenties. I wouldn't have it it's really <hes>. It's been interesting <hes>. You reported in nineteen forty. Three's that right <hes>. And yes and you so you grew up in a i like this. You talk a lot about what we call the sixties what is called the sixties which which you really date from about nineteen fifty four to nineteen sixty eight <hes>. Which was such a dramatic moment. I mean a lot of transition. I mean you've just been using that word one question. I ask people whoever been talking to you as you know how. Would you describe the religious and spiritual background of your childhood. And i wonder how you would start to talk about that. And i really mean the fullness of that you know that that your family but also that world do you came into <hes>. I i grew up of course <hes>. Baptist baptist mount zion baptist church but when when mommy married <hes>. My father married we call them gusts because daddy gus. When mommy may gust they moved to cincinnati. Because he couldn't get a job he was college graduate. He couldn't get a job in knoxville and so they moved to cincinnati where he could get a job and mommy joined the <hes>. Ame church but if we're just going to just kinda breeze on religion without getting into anybody's business you know. I recently have been fascinated with. Wyatt is that we don't actually look into the manger more. We always look at the cross. And i think that one of the problems with the manger is that we have to mary credit for bringing god to earth and <hes>. The book that i'm working on right now actress called a good cry and it's just because <hes>. Realize women keep a lot of things in them. I do know this for married. I'm gonna give credit having a baby hurts. I don't care who it is. A weird came from having a baby hurts. So i wanna give mary her. Craps and i also want to deal with the fact that as we are giving this birth part of the christian religion is supposed to do is give birth to a new human being you. Ask one kind of question. I don't know if i'm answering it. Strangely no but great. I think this question lands wherever in us. It wants to begin voice. I mean you you also want said you you said jos. Think it must have been a woman who developed the spiritual. Oh gosh when we look at savored which actually slavery is only going to be the end result. We have to look at the kidnapping in africa. We have to look at no matter. What the country. We have to look at the fact that somebody's sold and somebody purchased an and that just cannot be denied. We we're upset of course with the europeans because we say oh they create a slavery they might have but they didn't create the buying and selling of human beings that that had been going on for quite some time all over so we had the people coming across that ocean not knowing where they were going but knowing whatever it was they were not going to go back to where they used to be so somehow another. They had to make a decision. How do we go forward. But it had to be a woman because we're back to the manger we back to marry. We're back to this when women do it had to be a woman who said i need to settle my people down and when you consider there were a lot of languages. Going on yeah. She didn't speak english at that point. They didn't speak. Why healy at that point. They were in many languages. The only common language is going to be <hes>.

He couldn't get a job in knoxville and so they moved to cincinnati where he could get a job and mommy joined the Ame church but if we're just going to just kinda breeze on religion without getting into anybody's business you know. I recently have been fascinated with. Wyatt is that we don't actually look into the manger more. We always look at the cross. And i think that one of the problems with the manger is that we have to mary credit for bringing god to earth and The book that i'm working on right now actress called a good cry and it's just because Realize women keep a lot of things in them. I do know this for married. I'm gonna give credit having a baby hurts. I don't care who it is. A weird came from having a baby hurts. So i wanna give mary her. Craps and i also want to deal with the fact that as we are giving this birth part of the christian religion is supposed to do is give birth to a new human being you. Ask one kind of question. I don't know if i'm answering it. Strangely no but great. I think this question lands wherever in us. It wants to begin voice. I mean you you also want said you you said jos. Think it must have been a woman who developed the spiritual. Oh gosh when we look at savored which actually slavery is only going to be the end result. We have to look at the kidnapping in africa. We have to look at no matter. What the country. We have to look at the fact that somebody's sold and somebody purchased an and that just cannot be denied. We we're upset of course with the europeans because we say oh they create a slavery they might have but they didn't create the buying and selling of human beings that that had been going on for quite some time all over so we had the people coming across that ocean not knowing where they were going but knowing whatever it was they were not going to go back to where they used to be so somehow another. They had to make a decision. How do we go forward. But it had to be a woman because we're back to the manger we back to marry. We're back to this when women do it had to be a woman who said i need to settle my people down and when you consider there were a lot of languages. Going on yeah. She didn't speak english at that point. They didn't speak. Why healy at that point. They were in many languages. The only common language is going to be So when we get to going to ultimately become the united states these people had created a way to speak to themselves to each other through the language to spare chose. Yeah so when you were twenty five you road. I'm twenty five years old. A revolutionary poet. I- love seth. I want to ask you about the. The i love tacked on at the end of the sentence but i also want to ask you about what you meant at twenty five when you said you'll revolutionary poet and how you hey you look at that now as nikki. Giovanni quite a few years later i think twenty five was good but i always thought twenty five was one fourth of my life

The History of Lorenzo de' Medici
"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy v wilson and it's january first happy new year. Lorenzo de medici was born on the stay in fourteen forty nine. The medici family of florence was rich and powerful. They had come to florence sometime in the twelfth century although they had started out as just simple tuscan peasants but over a couple of hundred years they became incredibly wealthy and powerful by the middle of the fourteenth century. There were one of florence's leading families and they also had a reputation for being extremely adept at negotiating in the worlds of politics and money and this was through. Legitimate means as well as through things like bribery. Lorenzo domenici was described as the most medici of the medici. He was nicknamed lorenzo. The magnificent he's been described as the most powerful the most famous the most brilliant the most influential in the world of art thanks to his patronage and the most ruthless came to power in florence along with his brother in fourteen sixty nine after the death of their father and the two of them were ruling together and nine years later. There was a conspiracy to assassinate both of them and to take control of the republic of florence away from the medici. This was called the pazzi. Conspiracy the potsy and the medici were basically rival families within florence. One of the things that had led to this whole rivalry in the conspiracy was that the potsy family had taken over the financial affairs of the papacy and that was taking business away from the medici which the medici did not appreciate the ringleader in. This conspiracy was francesco. Potsy and he wasn't the patriarch of the pazzi family. But he was the one that was driving all of this. The fascination was finally set to take place during easter mass. in fourteen. seventy eight and lorenzo's brother giuliano was killed but lorenzo escaped afterward though. Lorenzo sought retro bution against olive his conspirators. There was a lot of hanging people throwing them out windows. A lot of dismemberments overall it was very gruesome and there were more than seventy executions of purported co-conspirators this whole incident though really shaped lorenzo's that his brother was dead so he was on his own in terms of his leadership at the republic and it had also gotten rid of a lot of actors and demonstrated the links that he would go to so after this whole conspiracy and the war that followed food. He had the support of a lot of the people of florence. He ruled almost as a monarch. Although lorenzo really liked to describe himself as just a highly respectable citizen anything special he and others in the family also acted as patrons to writers and artists and architects including people like botticelli and leonardo davinci among many others there was also of course michelangelo. Who was brought up partially in the medici household lorenzo domenici was also a collector of antiquities and of artwork. Basically what they were doing. They couldn't really afford to pay for the most extravagant biggest name artwork so they would find lesser known undiscovered talent of sort of cultivate them by their work for cheap. It's not however totally accurate to say that the medici family single paid for the renaissance. Sometimes they are described that way. Lorenzo was also a poet himself in addition to his patronage of other artists by the fourteen ninety s though lorenzo's health was declining the city of florence. Also becoming less and less enamored with the lifestyle that he had enabled and encouraged. This is a lifestyle that was just full of lavish festivals. in extravagance. He died at the age of only forty three. His son giovanni later became pope. Leo the tenth.
Best games of 2020: Among Us
"Another unexpected breakout success. Definitely not cyberpunk twenty seventy seven but a little old game called among us. it's an online multiplayer. Game centered around you and your friends. Essentially completing a lot of different tasks to keep your spaceship running while one or several of your teammates are actually trying to kill you. This cultural phenomenon is an indie game created by just three developers. its way of helping. People feel connected. Became a big deal with influencers. But what really sealed the deal is when leading up to the election congresswoman alexandria ocasio. Cortez played the game live on the streaming platform twitch as part of an effort to get people out to vote over. Four hundred thousand joined the livestream raising two hundred thousand dollars but among us wasn't a twenty twenty release. You've seen so many interesting success stories this year in really surprising places. One of the biggest stories of the year was among us among us was a game that came out in two thousand eighteen. It it was a tiny tiny tiny indie game made by a couple of people. Truly just a handful of people that nobody paid attention to in two thousand eighteen and this was the game like it was good in two thousand eighteen. Just nobody knew about it. Even though among us was an unlikely success giovanni worries that most indie games which rely on building up industry buzz at trade shows could be in trouble. The thing that actually is the most troubling thing that comes out of all of this is actually as it pertains to indie games from my perspective. The way that indie games make their money and the way that they get notoriety and become known is they go and they do the work in person they go to conventions like e. three which is the big video game convention which got cancelled this year and they put their names on the show floor and that gets word of mouth out about them but at the same time it also gets them in front of the eyes of investors and publishers. Who are actually gonna give them the money to release these games like with independent movies. It's indie games with small teams and small budgets that could be hit the hardest by the pandemic though if there is one industry that's gaining new followers and could probably thrive in a virtual business environment. It's probably video games. In general games. Were really prepared for this moment in some way because if you look at the last couple of years of how the industry has developed it's been really cleared that games have been moving towards the sort of like. Hey we're all going to have to be digital at some point you know whether it's whether it's through being away from one another long distances or or something like this games have been preparing for this really really well you know. Multi-player games of the last year have only gotten bigger and bigger so all of those pieces kind of came together this year where it was like. Hey we know all of this is rough and we know that a lot of industries film and sports are going to have a really hard time figuring out how to deal with this. We've got this.
