Georgia does not win this year. They are not going to win for a long time. And by that i mean. Get to the final four. Do you think this is the season as georgia is. Getting playoff are bus for kirby smart and his team. Yeah i've heard that the last few years in kirby keeps finding players in georgia keep finding ways to contend being a contender and actually doing. It are two different things. But what georgia's john paul. As they've stayed in the conversation or as curry says you gotta keep getting those at bats and when he finished in the top ten. Four straight years as georgia's don you recruit as well as kirby has you give yourself a chance and georgia's become known as a place that quarterbacks like to come now. The results have not always blossomed. Is much as people would like but you look at this roster now and jt daniels. Looks like one of the best quarterbacks in the country coming back. He's a former five-star they signed broadband. A grip he was a five star. Wants committed oklahoma. Now they've got gunner stockton committed a twenty twenty two five star.

He said this on on our show he said if you are a bulldog fan and you're going to sit there and stare honestly in the eye kirby has done less with more than maybe even mark. Rick how would you respond to that. Wow i guess. I'd say first of all you've got to get more right. You've got to have those recruiting classes in the top two or three. That's a good problem to apple and as far as doing more with less they're less with pernille they're getting ready. You can't if you can't finish the job though mike. That's i mean you're you're you're you're you're playing right in to what these guys are saying georgia out recruit anyone would maybe the exception of alabama But when are they going to finish the job. That's the question that georgia fans are asking. Yeah it's it's been tough when you win the sec. Three years in a row. And you lose to alabama in the sec championship. Game and twenty eight teeny get left out of the playoff for you. Come within one play of winning the national title twenty seventeen. I mean. i can't answer those questions for you. Know it's funny. You had ryan mcgee up there a few minutes ago talking about the late. Great dale earnhardt. He didn't win the daytona five hundred until his twentieth attempt. So those big game. Victories can be kind of a lucid. And i think that's happened for george. Remember paul kirby smart is only forty five years old. This is only year six for him. You look at how long it took guys. Like steve spurrier and nick sabin and they were six seven years into their careers before they got their national titles.

She claimed to be an educator, putting her to the front of the covert lines. Wow. She tried to pass herself off as herself. I should say off is an educator. Because she teaches soul cycle. Stationary bike classes. Are you kidding? And it worked. She jumped the line because being an educator qualifies you. For the vaccine. Like a lot of us would like to get the vaccine.

Redditors took on hedge funds over GameStop stock and won. So what now?
"Video game retailer. That's not doing business. Right now just toppled in value on friday. Game stop was worth forty three dollars a share and a bunch of people got together on read it on a message board called wall street bets and they just decided. Let's buy up game. Stop stock and push prices higher and higher now a sheriff game one three hundred and forty seven dollars. Those read it. Based investors made lots of money they have also up ended the entire stock market and bled dry a bunch of hedge funds so much so the white house and treasury now monitoring. What's going on erin. Griffith is also monitoring. What's going on as a reporter for the new york times and she joins me now a aaron. Can you explain. I the origin. There's so there's a reddit thread where people talk about. Trading on wall street stuff called wall street bets is that right right and has about two million users i think and it's not just unrooted. They're also lots of other places on social media where people are gathering talk about stocks. Obviously out there on twitter there on dischord channel which actually shut down today for reasons that are unrelated but the mets people getting together and talking about stocks and it's become extremely popular in the pandemic because While there's no sports the worse there's not a lot of gambling. People are bored and so robin hood which is a stock trading app that has a mission of democratising investing has become extremely popular over the last year. A lot of people are day trading. Now right to robin was. Yeah so basically that. That's where it started right so you can get other robinhood app and thousand dollars or five hundred dollars or you don't have to have some huge amount of money right. You go on this board now. The origin of this as i understand it was it was kind of a troll and it was a troll directed at a bunch of hedge funds had made what's called shorts. They were betting the game stopped. Stock would go down. because it's business looked imperil. does that. is that how it worker started. Yes yes basically A lot of red investors have some kind of vendetta against shortsellers. I'm part of this comes from elon. Musk tesla is one of the most shorted most bet against stocks. And he has. This kind of say is very anti short-selling and So there's kind of manipulation that you can do where if the stock goes way up the short seller's hedge funds that are betting against the company betting on its docks no down. They get squeezed and the higher. The stock goes the more you know. The more the more money they're losing it can become really ugly for them and so they have the the traders know this and they kind of turned it into a game. This is the first time happened before of till ray. Which is a cannabis. Had that happen to them before. But it's definitely the first time it's happened at this scale right so that's interesting. I don't think i that elon. Musk doesn't like shorts. And a lot of people that run companies don't like shorts because what shortsellers do is say we bet on. You're gonna you're doing bad and our selves can drive your stock down. So they go and they look at this stock game. Stop that a lot of wall street hedge funds and said you're in trouble. We're going to bet against you. And they were like we'll take the other side of the bet. We'll rally to rescue the day game. Stop stock and am i right that there's like multiple hedge funds that have now lost billions of dollars on this. I don't know how many have have lost and how much. But there's there's definitely. At least one hedge fund. Melvin capital that had to take a three billion dollar bailout a from a fellow fund over rumors that by the going out of business. They denied that anyone who is short on the stock shorting. A stock is extremely risky. And so anyone who had that position is is definitely hurting right now and tweeted about drawing more attention to it in now all this news coverage the fact that the stock was halted nine times yesterday. The trading was because of so much volatility is drawing more attention to it getting more people sort of rallying in this area absurd mischievous game. So here's what i don't quite get like. At a certain point. I guess this started to get momentum of its own because it doesn't seem like the number of people who've downloaded the robin hood app and are on this reddit. Thread kinnock possibly account for the volume. That is pouring into this stock. Yeah i think. That's a good point. And i think a lot of people are sort of framing like oh this is the little guys rising up against the evil hedge funds and i mean that is worth noting that the hedge funds are also in wall street. Beds there look. They're following this. They're looking at what people are doing. And there are definitely enough people who are day trading on robin to to kind of move. The market share significant are move the market cap significantly of small or thinly traded companies. So big investors are following this now too. I mean you saw a who's very prominent. Silicon valley investor. Tweet that he was following it to i. There's probably some some big money playing in this alongside the read the verdict

I've thought about it multiple times for much happier reasons but never got around to it. Thank you for the work you do. I will say this is not a completely valid criticism. I i will say. I think part of it for me. Is that any time. There is an early stage medical development story. I kind of assume humans are going to be horrible to each other Which is part of why. I didn't even occur to me So it's a really good point. I will just as a correction. He was not homeless though he was believed to be he had home. He just didn't tend to go to it Not that that makes any difference. It's just for clarity. Because i don't want more laws story to become confused Yeah i mean it's it's always tricky and i now the other thing i will say is that we get mixed reactions anytime we issue any kind of warning. Yeah there are lots of times when people say. Why did you warn us that ruins the story and it's stupid and people should just know that history is full of horrors and other people who say. I really wish you had told me this was going to happen a lot a lot of times what. I'm trying to make that call it. It's a lot of times when it seems like something that would not be expected in the course of the episode like if the title of the episode is the second such massacre probably not going to issue a warning about there being a lot of violence in the episode But if it's a story about brita flowers and there's some kind of like horrific murdering. I'm probably going to say something about the murder at the beginning. Those are.

Also i think would be a deterrent. One hundred percent and keep in mind like these are very high level powerful wealthy families in the area. So it's a little bit tricky because the messmer family of course was very very powerful and wealthy but griffith also kind of in some ways you know had had the city a little bit over a barrel lake. He had those water rights that he essentially given them. It was all a little bit weird but so they kind of put him off is like We'll think about it and then in a similar move the following year nineteen thirteen griffith offered the city fifty thousand dollars.

They were built but that did not happen until later. In one thousand nineteen griffith died after a prolonged illness which was reported as liver trouble..

"Cloud. Because you know with the thirty for thirty. Two push bruce lee showing no mercy fat five got the crew on deck. G goes deeper. That's a fact. Espn download now. Well case you haven't heard the playoff is about to begin five pm on new year's day. Sugar bowl eight forty five in the championship game on january eleventh always great to Welcome back mike griffith to the program and mike. Let's start with the georgia bulldogs. After a spectacular saturday. They were hoping for one more game. It had already been postponed and now it has been canceled in what has been the reaction there and can anything be done about well. We're not gonna probably ever have anything like this in the future but really curious about your thoughts. Yeah a lot of fury. A lotta anger at georgie. No i it's twofold one georgia's playing great football. Jt daniels i mean before jt. They convert forty two percent of the third downs with jt. They convert sixty six right. Jt daniel six touchdown passes on on third down throws three incompletions. I mean the guys night and day. It's been amazing. Some people maybe. It's the schedule actually know if you look at the third down defense is the last. Three teams actually ranked better than the first six on average. What georgia's played. This guy has made all the difference in the world. It makes a difference in recruiting. Suddenly you have players. That are migrating to georgia that. Want to be a part of the georgia offense again so this transformation is happening in the shadows. Now that's georgia's fault. They didn't take care of business when they needed to jacksonville or in tuscaloosa and so they're sitting out this week so you don't get to see it but it's been happening on saturdays in athens and this georgia outgoing class. All these guys had an opportunity to be the winningest class in georgia football history. That's quite a legacy. But because vanderbilt canceled out all they can do is tie that mark now and so the a piece of their legacy is gone understand. Covid nineteen is not controllable but in the case of vanderbilt its players that are quitting the team and in the case of vanderbilt they cancelled on december fifth rally the troops for their senior day on december twelve and then canceled on georgia again. After the fact so georgia couldn't even get an alternative game that was acceptable for the senior day. So there's a lot of of anger and frustration and disappointment and all george can do now is hope that they get a good bowl draw. I think they need notre dame to upset clemson. I think if that happens. And if chalk holds and ohio state beat the bad northwestern and alabama roles florida. You could see georgia clemson in the orange bowl and i think that could excite the georgia fan but as things currently project. You're looking maybe. Cincinnati georgia in which case. Maybe some georgia guys opt out and say you know what it's cincinnati. It's it's not a real game. I know the people in cincinnati will love that. Hey let me ask you this. And i realize this is a talk show and callers get fired up but after watching jt daniel. We had a couple calls monday. And normally i say enough already but these people really believe that things would have been different if jt had been able to to get healthier sooner d. Do you think the florida game had a different outcome will sure and you know and listen. Here's why florida had nine possessions in the first half because george went three and out on four out of five series. I mean this if you put cal. Trask back on the field. And you don't make him move. I told he's pop pop. Pop you make a move. We saw we falls apart right. Pick six three turnovers against the bad lsu but if you let that guy get a speech still and you let him play pop shop and you keep putting him back on the field. Like georgie did and give him nine possessions in the first half he'll kill you. Listen let me tell you. Alabama's game plan paul. They're going to run the ball because the first way to beat cal. Trask is to keep him off the field because if he's on the field and he gets in rhythm and he plays poppy shot and doesn't move his feet. he'll destroy. Now good defenses can make moot but to your point. Yes absolutely would have been different as i said. This is a guy who can move the ball around and throw the downfield pass now. Kirby smarter tell you. That starts in bennett. Was winning fourteen zero before he got the shoulder shot that required the the the pain shot at halftime. then he couldn't hit broadside farm. I'm not convinced that's bennett. Wooded came back in and won that game heading not injured his shoulder. I don't know what would happen. They were up fourteen zero. I don't think it's a stretch though to say that. A team of the good quarterback beach florida. I told you way back. When i thought george would win that game and the reason i thought george would win. That game is because i thought they would get to. Jt daniels coming into that game coming off the bench. That's what i really believed. I didn't think it would be doin'. Math is up next. I thought it would be. Jt and jt. Is that good of a guy. I mean paul. This guy was a five star. This guy was playing. At usc as a freshman put three hundred and forty seven yards or three seventy four notre dame when he was supposed to be a senior in high school so this guy is a very skilled passer. He's very good. he's got room to grow. He's got to get a little more building back. He's got a bit thicker. Stronger is clocks. gotta a little faster. Uni sec now dude. Don't sit back there. They'll kill ya. Missouri delivered some shots on them right. But yes. I do think that it doesn't help out to play that game and i really don't want insult florida..

Hate crime says new jersey smaller situation. are the over under was on somebody saying that because i don't know anything about it but when i hear attacked i no longer think attacked. And in this case. She does claim it got physical. But but that's all we know. i mean. see this kind of our problem with changing all the verbiage. All the time like if you were attacked in a park you were attacked in a park. Like i punches right at somebody has going to have a black guy like a split open lipin a torn blouse or whatever.

"Exactly. No you're making the accusation. Just bring you. You're you're making the accusation. I'm just bringing up the point that these i'm not only concerned what lane kiffin says to be blunt. I mean if he wants to say something said. But i'm talking to you and i do. I do think paul. I do think paul i think you and i both covered enough cases in the nc double a. And covered football long enough. I do think that there should be another level of insight. I don't think that it's too crazy to suggest that. I do think that more transparency would help this out. If it programs weren't so secretive and hiding numbers and names rosters. I mean why can't it be like the nfl. The professional they act professional in the nfl. They put out their roster. They tell you an injury report every week. There's all this gaming going on with these coaches hiding behind. No depth chart put out travel. Rosters put out and now all of a sudden you're gonna trust Everything they tell you with whether or not they could have played a game because the fifth defensive tackle in the and here's the thing. it's. I'm speculating. But i'm speculating. Because there's zero transparency. And i think we deserve transparency and totally opportunity games. Mike i you know. I agree with you on the transparency. I just got through saying. I agree with you on the transparency issue. You know that. However i speak to these athletic directors all the time and i may be the most naive guy in the world which would be something unique and unprecedented for me but i tend to believe them when when a when an athletic director dirk comes on here yesterday and tells us his situation. I believe him. I don't believe there's something i believe. I turned around your little world in your basement. I'm sorry mike. Yeah you come up with you know i missing and i think you're wrong about missouri. I really i really do. I didn't say anything. I bet you brought up missouri. i. I'm just merely stating what lane kicking my yesterday. You're not you're not hard to through. Okay i mean you took with three years. You taking some indirect shots at missouri. And all i'm saying. Is i have a hard time buying it but but again i'm sure i'm sure i think you know what i'm talking about. I think it's. I don't think you're out of touch paul. I'm saying i believe their numbers on just saying how hard are they trying to play games. I'm just saying what they consider the game that that There may there may be there may be an outlier. But but i'm just talking about missouri i believe with jim stork said here yesterday but anyway we'll take questions we don't need to settle tonight. I appreciate your time as always. It's my favorite moment of the week to be able to where you're going next. Mike griffith missions as we all religions this week. It's your apartment speaking. And i need some favors when you're seeing in the shower. Just try going up key. You're trying to be an alto when really era soprano. Oh and if you could bundle your renters and car insurance with geico it's easy to do online and we could save money and then when you read your murder mysteries at night could you read out loud.

"griffith" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Groceries listening to the paul finebaum show podcast as this great offense their opponents at run more plays than their offense has they give five and a half yards a carry on first down. That makes me think georgia can run the ball and kyle. Trask is good but he hasn't been moved yet. In a aaj jewelry leads the nation in pressure rate. Is georgia gets to trask enough. That they do find a way to beat late field goal but but again nothing was surprising. I it's not close. It's that close okay. Mock comeback and we welcome back to the program. Same place that he was a week ago. Mike griffith so mike how are you. And how's it going. I if i know. We were having throwback throwback thursday said some naked baby pictures for you paul at me come on now man you know it was looking pretty good for about three and a half minutes for georgia but Honestly just the worst exhibition of quarterback play i. I couldn't see that coming paul. I couldn't see the misthrows come in. I couldn't see the failure execute honestly. I didn't think they've scored fourteen points in the first three and a half minutes of the game i knew florida's defense with bad but i didn't think it was that bad But you know once georgia's quarterback took a shot on the shoulder and they started missing their layups. That's what kirby smarts comment was you. Gotta hit your layups. And you gotta give florida credit for shifted into a defense that tested that walk on quarterback and the backup and georgia was unable to hit the open receiver enough about last week and now that we don't have a game this week. What's the path forward for georgia in relation to the quarterback position. How many other teams are going to say that cobain's cancer. Here's the thing. I can't figure out in lane kiffin. Not a guy that that we're going to be. Quoting abraham lincoln ten years or anything like that but he did make the point that the teams that are counting That can't play. I mean do these guys not have like thirty or forty walk on the team. You know they can still move forward. I think it was saying pittman that said. Hey if arkansas can play football they're gonna play football and it's up to the individual schools. It's an honor system if you will but i'm starting to have some real questions now about what constitutes not being able to play. I mean it's almost as if the schools that have done a really good job. Managing their kobe. Protocol are being punished by this. I mean You know george for example. They've had their scheduled change twice already. They they had to play a florida team. That had played one game in three weeks this week. Missouri cancels out How close are they really. Are we talking about one or two guys. You can't pull a guy over the guy's good enough to go against the starters and practice every day is a walk on but he's not good enough to play as the is the fifth defensive tackle any game so i mean i'm starting to have questions now and i think that's fair in terms of especially where we're at politically with if they're going to recount the ballots about re we recount dacoven numbers or have some oversight. Well let's stay on that. Because i think that is a really interesting point. Jimbo was here yesterday. Jimbo fisher said he had to positives and had to shut down others. Have more others Variance variable numbers. What are you here on this Beyond what you just got three same because it's becoming A serious issue yeah. It's a really serious. She own great sankey addressed it yesterday and give the commissioner credit stayed online for an hour an answer to every question that came his way about this and the difference between college football in the. Nfl is that the college football is governed by the cdc guidelines. So it's the it's the contact tracing. It's not even the guys that test positive. It's the guys that are around the guys that test positive whereas in the nfl they can test out of that. You would think the sec with its resources would be able to do the same. But that's just not how it's drawn up and you know it's such a twenty twenty year. Paul when great sankey quoted wayne's world yesterday i said boy. This is twenty twenty. I don't know anybody more professor or distinguished or intellectual than great sankey and yet he gave the apps wayne's world quote that living in the now and that's exactly what we're all doing. I mean every week. It changes the schedule changes. And we're to appoint now with december twelve filling up with these makeup games. That may or may not be played knows where every cancelation is gonna affect the team that that wasn't even scheduled to play that game as i said already happened with georgia. Their their bye week change and they ended up playing a florida team. That only had to play one game in three weeks and then it was. It was a very good florida teams. That turned cal. Trask in the first half made some really nice throws in the second half not so much but they had a comfortable lead. In in georgia's quarterback situation was literally historically bad but to the point of contact tracing and kobe nineteen testing. I think we've got some real questions as to how many how many programs are going to be able to play the complete schedule. You take a look at ohio state. I know they've gone down another game. They're down to seven regular season games right now so i suppose it's all relative well. Let me stay on that because this is the same of the week based on what. We've lost already for saturday and what what should be done to try to make this a fair proposition. Or is there really much you can do because se sitting there trying to figure out you know who plays and who doesn't and who plays whom yeah. Well it's it's not a matter of being fair we. I think we all learned a long time ago. Life's not fair right like doesn't give you a what's fair like gives you you take and Credit to the schools. You know the that have you taken. What's there's i. I don't know what's ahead you know. This is unprecedented and listen. I'm not gonna stand here and be critical greg. Thank you. Because i think he managed the situation better than than any collegiate commissioner to the point that he should probably be made commissioner of college football. Frankly because they need it. There needs to be somebody to to level the playing field with all these conferences. But i do think there's questions at the end of the year. I know this on what commissioner banking said yesterday on that teleconference paul. There's no interest in moving back the sec championship game from the nineteen. And there's no interest at this time a move in the play offs back from the semi-final being january first and and championship game being in love. And i'm starting to rumble out of ohio state. Hey can we just moved that. No no big ten. you're spring. Football idea didn't fly okay. You fumbled on the front end..
"griffith" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"We walk in your back. Second half the show is live. Mike griffith in a couple of minutes until then we will roll along with your phone called at eight five five two four two seven two eight five and let's check in next with robert who is in south carolina. Hey robert good afternoon. Yes sir Mr fine but i don't know it's a real honor first-time caller thank you I'm following up on this georgia quarterback situation. They had to prime quarterbacks that they ran off this program jamie noon one in just fields. Why can't they just get those great quarterbacks in and say your number one. I saw justin fields in a spring gain. Completely outplayed from this is like three years ago. Why do we pay millions of dollars. These to say look at this is equal competition. This is not equal competition. You are better quarterbacks. Your number one Wins losses. go through two quarterbacks. I mean this is not rocket science. I mean i just don't understand this quarter back situation. Georgia and robbie mediocre quarterback ran. Hold on hold on new quarterbacks that could bring them ship ship. I wanted to national championship. Game back in two thousand seventeen okay. That was our last hope. I don't see any hope in the future right now under this current situations and found up in the previous caller had said and You know as you know a lifetime georgia fan. It's very frustrating. Ever okay to your show me answer. Your question will try to answer it You know came in and supplanted Another five star quarterback from the west coast and then fields comes in. I mean kirby smart cannot have tuna. It's like he cannot have to number one quarterback so if you if you decide to go with frahm which clearly he did you're running a big risk of losing the other guy it happens everywhere and alabama lost tongue of his little brother who was no better than third string. He's now starting at maryland. So you just have to make a choice and nowadays players are not going to stick around there just to there to ready to go play somewhere else. Mark is up next. Hey mark thanks good afternoon. That's an important. How are you. I'm doing well appreciate it good afternoon. Great finally talk to yacht actually. Call the cdc. And i think they've got all their lines forward it over to europe your phone. Yeah Obviously love needs to go back and start working on the vaccine. She says it football's not essential. She hasn't been in the south bay. I found out in the early days of the pandemic. When i do was considered essential. And i'm thinking okay. If if that's essential then football is more essential. So i do think it's important. I'm not trying to be i. I understand what's the most important things but college football occupies the the minds of a lot of people. And i think it's it's healthy and without it i think the The mental health of this country would be in seriously. Were shape yet delivery matter of fact the caller you had several callers ago. That was asking you when the pandemic career. And i know you said his name but found it a whole lot like dr fauci didn't mean mistake. Well a couple of questions for listening to john. Salty talking about hugh freeze. I agree and i was listening to you. A couple of weeks ago when you had the caller owned before your interview with coach freeze and he was roasting you pretty good as far as coach freezes morals and things nature. I think we all know the coach will be back in the sec. S we know that there'll be some baggage that goes on with that but I think in today's culture. We also all know that there's one thing that will make that go away. It's yeah it's and i'm not trying to say i mean by the way endorsing Coach the guy's not of a serial killer. He he's not a he's not he doesn't have he's he's not selling crack to adolescence. I mean this is a guy who made a mistake. We've already discussed it and he. He's proving that he's a great football coach at a place that i mean if you think it's easy to win at liberty and beat two. Acc schools and good luck. I don't know anyone else who could have done it absolutely. Can i ask about a couple of alabama coaches coaches so coats. Artesian would you have thought Seven years ago. Eight years ago that we would be talking about An alabama offensive juggernaut. Like we are today. No and and and i i think circuits a lot of credit for it You know he has had another guy that had a rough path. He has overcome it. And i think you're going to see his name come up for a lot of jobs. He turned down colorado. He could have been there That's a good job. Well theoretically it's a totally agree. And i think he deserves it. But as an alabama fan. I would certainly love new because it seems stay where he is because again last one. He's going to get the video. Go ahead it's your last. One is coach jones. I watched his demeanor on the sideline and he seems to be very contented He seems to be satisfied where he is. I'm not sure exactly what his role is. But just wondering if anybody is actually sniffing him as far as the head. Coaching position or kind of. What's going on with coach jones. Answer that i ran into him. I don't know sometime last season. We were staying in the hotels alabama and we went up in the elevator. It turned out Got out at about a twenty five minute conversation. We talked a few times since then. And i say that as a as a precursor to say this guy is really happy. He loves what he's doing mean pressure the burden of of what he was going through is him and i think he would like to be a head coach again and quite frankly i think he would handle it. Well you know you learn from your mistakes and you know he. He had been successful at cincinnati. He had had some moments at tennessee. It's easy to blast him but look what's going on now. That's not an easy fix and the ending was bad but He he he had a couple of good years there. Yeah really just noticing from his demeanor. In the way the conducts himself. I mean he. Just seems i i i mean for a guy. That's you know an you know theoretically Graduate assistant or an analyst. He's about his hat. He's the happiest coach i've ever seen. Great thanks paul. I think this is dr fauci. Beeping in chile. Thank you will Would anthony on here in a minute. Daniel is up next in tennessee Danial welcome to the program and good afternoon Very nice talking to you. I just wanted to interject getting there on the the covert. I'm sixty three years old and i've had two heart attacks and i had kobe Last ever last week or so baby. Worry and the first.
George Gascon Leading Jackie Lacey In Race For Los Angeles District Attorney
"Night at the zoo. Many of the contest, though, are still too close to tall and that was clearly on the minds of voters and party officials as case here, W's Benjamin Gottlieb reports. It is without a doubt, A very strange scene here at the zoo. I'm standing in the parking lot right where the 1 34 and the five intersects. You see, rows of cars pointed toward a big blowup screen watching MSNBC and the presidential results. This event put on by the way, Democrats hosted a number of the candidates they've supported, including David Room, who's running to defend his fourth City Council district seats, and George Gascon, who's challenging Jackie Lacey for district attorney as well as several other candidates. The sentiment here amongst voters and party officials is cautious optimism. While California is reliably blue. And many of the folks here are confident that their candidates will win the local races and the state balance there is concern about the presidential race, and you can see it amongst the supporters and also the Democratic staff.

And how many times you know we'll get a big chart going you UN. Sure Yeah pitchfork deaths. Lectures. I. Give an ascend. My two weeks notice to work right now because it's going to take his going to take some time with monks. We're going to be leading a little alike room together the microwave. That's all we have to just a microwave. Most popular stabbed with a pitchfork movies and TV shows. Yeah. Now, that's actually something that pulled up on. IMDB. Really yes it actually has Naive thinking that nobody had tabulated all that yet. They can you can actually on refine searches and keywords a home Mike God you can click on stab with pitchfork PITCHFORK says twenty two. but it also says bare-chested male. Yeah. Okay. Wow. They're really like there's all kinds of filters you can have applied to. Stab with a pitch for the prowler. Yeah. For sure delirium I don't remember delirium. Is that a F- lumber to Baba we're not to watch that. It's incomprehensible also the burning had like hedge clippers or something yes. So there was a excessive force I guess had a pitchfork death I don't remember that. There's a movie actually called pitch for two thousand and sixteen. At least it made the list. I. Guess we should have figured that did Otas name Michael Ian. Thomas in Griffith Thomas Ian Griffith I can't remember his whole name I wonder if
Charges not pursued after incidents involving man accused of killing Houston Police sergeant
"Killed HPD Sergeant Harold Preston Elmer Manzano, an illegal alien with a long criminal record fatally shot Sergeant Preston during a domestic violence call Tuesday. Doug Griffith with the police Officers Union told Houston's Morning news. He's not surprised the accused charges at the same, which happens a lot in this city, and I'm concerned again with the way the D A's office is running, But that's outside the scope of this Sergeant president spent four decades on the force and was just weeks away from retiring.

The Birth of a Nation & The Origins of the NAACP
"Most early films consisted of one real. Lasted around fifteen minutes and cost a few hundred dollars to produce. All of that changed in Nineteen fifteen. When a film called the birth of a nation? A three hour long saga was released by Director D, W, griffith it instantly stood out as a technological and storytelling marvel. It also stood out as a monumental piece of blatantly racist propaganda. The birth of a nation fixes, certain story of the civil war and reconstruction in the minds of the American public, and that story is that black people were too lazy and ignorant to fully master the citizenship that they were offered by reconstruction. Birth of a nation really didn't have black people it. So these white people in black face portraying congressman who are obviously not ready for self-government. Portraying the idea of. Rapist and these all the stereotypes that are believed by many many Americans. The film was met with fierce resistance from African Americans particularly from a recently founded organization focused on the advancement of the race, the end up boys EP. One of the most important early initiatives of the N. Double ACP was. Against the birth of a nation, they generated a lot of interest by protesting FM and drew in a great deal of support from African Americans. Despite its best efforts, the NWC couldn't persuade censorship boards or theaters. To limit the film's reach. But the young organization gained national prominence because of this campaign. That year membership almost doubled. And that number would continue to grow as it melted the fight against Jim Crow. Those activists descended at the time. Those dissenting voices were always there. They were there during the darkest periods of American history and remembering that tradition to me is almost more important than remembering the failures and the losses and the terrorism the black people faced.

WHO's professor of Law and society at Griffith University in Brisbane Australia. He's also adjunct professor of law at Queensland University of Technology and Research Associated University College Under Center for Blockchain Technologies, he who suggests on the Bloomberg professional globalization of law and the technology in law. But come John. Hello. Thank you. Sure. Yeah. So I want to start with one of your recent people, professions and expertise hog machine learning, and blockchain redesigning the landscape of professional knowledge and organization. In invite you say machine learning has entered the world of the professions. The different impacts automation will have huge impacts on the nature of work and society. Engineering architecture and medicine or early and enthusiastic adopters. Other professions especially law at late you say at in some cases with leptons adopters. could you talk about you know sort of the landscape all? Of Law, profession and. They today in terms of opting these technologies. Certainly Louis interesting because it's a very old profession is. Often considered one of the. Original traditional professions along with medicine and the church. And in a sense law has used different kinds of technology might say I mean does it? Based around writing. And then the printing press and So on yet that. It's always being based on a craft. A skill which the individual person is that enables them to do, whatever is quote if you like and. said, there's never been a lot of room for any kind of automation. Certainly, the has been space for using. A people who are not fully qualified as low as about as paralegals, people like that, who will do a lot of repetitive work document checking and things like that and so on. But what will get into now is the situation where automation through machine learning. There's other kinds of artificial intelligence. is able to start constructing documents example contracts. Check dollop a documents for particular clauses and things like that mature they're up to date and this incense is. Replacing now, the kind of work that noise will do. So I think in some ways more more of of the profession of law is gonNA be subject to automation, but distinction I would many because I think it's quite important here is that A lot of what lawyers do. Is actually quite. Active that that that that the drafting contracts overtime or or they're reviewing documents to some sort or another or they're getting through particular. Negotiation. And so you know a lot of it is the same, but they build up the expertise through doing these same kinds of were over and over again and What we're now finding is that instead of having young lawyers coming in and doing what you might call the grunt work of checking documents and going through discovery applications where he goes through the size boxes of evidence to decide. which are the appropriate documents you want the emails, the invoices order, this sort of stuff that is the kind of work which is lending itself to automation. And, and so that his taking away a lot of the work which is used for trading purposes with young lawyers and is just doing it much quicker. will quickly I mean More efficiently in many ways and probably expensive much much expensive a Lotta. This work is being outsourced to you know legal process outsourcing India or Philippines South Africa places like that. So yeah, that's that's right and so in some ways, the group of lawyers who do the work which requires the skill, the judgment. Is Reducing in some ways. That pool is getting smaller. Yeah Yeah it's it's interesting. The the distinction that you make between automation. And in my job and let's call it decision making right which is you know a lot of work in the business side of this. So for example. in the nineties in large pharmaceutical company So you think about you know rnd. People might think it has really complex selection of programs that design of them, portfolio management, risk management, all those decisions. Genuine companies be say well, senior managers with lots of experience and intuition make those decisions really well right and so that's statement would automatically implied that machines can really do much there. But what we find in the mid nineties says that is systematic analysis of data make those decisions. Don't better. Actually, I've Tom to humans humans. Always seem to make decisions. These are typically bonding the decision. So if you go back and look at it, alternative experiment has not been wrong. So we have no date to say it was a good decision at typically. So human scaffold, fifty percents of making good decisions So do you know just throwing a coin or letting monkey make those decisions so? Yup We found that even complex decision making that humans hold. you know close to their you know kind of domain I'm not necessarily. So we have machines That could do that much better than I. Don't know there's an analog of that in in law I I. Think The may be actually I mean Two three years ago the royal. Society in England decided to arrange a working party on machine learning. One of the things that they put together a a roundtable on machine learning professions resolved to talk about that night and I talked about the history of professions in technology and. and. I think one of the peculiar things that came out to in relation to law is that law. Has always been a sort of on its own. If you think about medicine, for example, medicines always had the teacher hospital institution that sort of straddles the academic quilt and the practice walls and brings those people together and as a result. INCORPORATES loss of, scientific, work. Engineering work as well computing work and things like that. And that's been the first teaching hospital king into existence in in the French revolution in Seventeen eighty-nine. A long history of that. If you look at law, there was nothing equivalent to that whatsoever and there is in fact, actually a big gap between what academy does on what the practitioners in your do so that As a result as before law has come to this a quite late but what we are. Finding I think is that Certainly the management consultancy finding is that because of the nature of a lot of what goes on in legal office a remarkable amount of it can be automated. So what we are getting now is companies setting themselves up to do this automated work. So. We have companies which do nothing but contract our instruction formation sort of company. The typical lawyer would would say to a client Do you WANNA contract classes. Yes I want this for this. And loyal galway draft contract back with it, and then in the con- comes back against as I need another contract, you go through the same process. which is good for the lawyer but not necessarily good kind. What we're finding now is the company's not can think of a few of them that will, in fact, go into the company's show order contracts. Let's see the entire. Corpus of contracts you've got there and they will analyze them. And basically say, all right. We can create a new contract in automated way fairly easily it may need some modification according to special circumstances but on the whole, it's fairly standard and and they can do that INNOVA systematic world meaning the contracts are reviewed that checked. If they're going to expire marketing, you want an unable just the system will cope with that if you're. Yeah. So yeah. No No. No so I was just going to say yes. So that the distinction you make, you know in terms education sort of systematic graduate level education that because as you say, it is low in one sense of soft proficient. You say in called professions like made it to text reengineering this team has a strong concern ensuring that expertise applied in the public interest when as low little bit different from from bad and economics in some sense sort of in the same same vein we have now made economics at really odd. of mathematics you know north of analytics there. Whether they are actually useful from policy making perspective is left to debate but at least it has been an attempt to make this make economic video hard. So so I don't know A. Fascination has been in in law I very much that will happen in law. Oh there things are beginning to happen I mean let me just boob. At. One example I learned in that workshop that I mentioned the Royal Society held. With somebody from the engineering profession talking about. The difference in skills between people who above forty I'm below forty he said. If he he was about Forty Years Austin design an aeroplane, takeout pen and paper Pencil, and paper and. I don't know anyone under forty could do that would know how to do that go onto a computer program undecided there. So you can see that the incorporation of technology into the academy through to the actual. Occupation. Than phones and things is is already a standard and they're in law. It isn't law. As you said, it's still very much a soft skill although I will argue that there is a difference between the way nor is viewed in different parts of the world. So in the United States A law is I think more tilted towards the sciences. So low in economics is one of the big things in the. US. So you got a lot of people working in the of lower economics who might go onto antitrust work no competition work and things like that which across a lot of economics, mathematics and Statistics and so on. In, say a Europe Australia and so on. Law is more allied towards the humanities. And the classics. So it doesn't have that kind of scientific underpinning in that way. So anything that's going to change in these parts if you like is going to be something that's going to be imported from outside. And is going to have a very dramatic impact when whether it does An and I think that's yet to happen. I don't think there's been sort of Cambrian explosion. If you like in in law, the will be one I'm sure but but law has an advantage over engineering economics or the other areas you might. That's With the nature of the rule of law and absent justice is since law as a a way of ordering society is absolutely crucial to everything else. Then, Law and lawyers will say will look you know we have a special status here is different amid leave engineer. We certainly want to make sure bridges stay up. We don't want down but we can design different kinds of bridges. We can design different kinds of legal bills, but they're also the fundamental rules If you want to you know if you're an engineering company and you want to build a bridge in a different country, you're going to have to do it on the basis of the legal rules, which will be just vise by the lawyers according to the country's there in so on. So in in that was what? I might put in a special category if you live. Yea. Yea. Let me let me push NBA John. So. The. The conference that you mentioned you know the Internet is under forty and engineers at. So so one could argue you know from an engineering perspective could argue e- It sexually dangerous. To not use machines to build aircraft the goes you know all the technology that cap today actually help us make the trap lot safer. granted. If you sit down with a blank sheet of paper and Pencil, you might get the principal right. But, but the technology has advanced so much that you really have to use. Technology to do so in some sense, engineering is pushed back. that. I argue this myself then they were naive engineering school. I had a V exposed at my daughter bent to school. She used the same physics book. Twenty, five. meter. I argue that that is sort of backward because data speed no need for an engineer to really learn Newtonian physics anymore because it is prescriptive, it's deterministic can make machines, learn it very quickly and so why spend all? Right. So so then you know if you think about the the law field. I wonder if there is a senior argument that is to say Dan and tape really good lawyer casts lot of intuitions dot expedients to crap something Contract or a discourse, but then maybe the machine scan actually do it even better We haven't really tested that hypothesis yet. Right be almost have this idea that humans are always dominant. Or machines but that the not be true as technology lancers. So what do you think about that in the in the? It's a very important point actually because the. American bosses. being modifying its ethical rules recently to say that lawyers have a duty and obligation to keep up to date with technology. So we already know the technology is now a an important part and I have to say when when I say the word technology, I mean this at all kinds of levels from what you can do with Microsoft word for example, it strays plug ins all the way up to artificial intelligence IBM, Watson, or something like that So that if if lawyers become. A. Uses of technology whether this small firms or big firms or what have you a under the Aba now they they actually have an obligation to make sure that they are up to date. They can't just say we didn't know what we were doing. So I think in that respect, there is a there was a move. The other move that is taking place is actually the push from from the clients. Now, this you have to look into ways one is with corporate clients. The corporation seen US lawyers have to use noise if you'd like want their work done. PHILOS- money on Chiba they wanted to more efficiently They don't want the best piece of work every time they want something that works and they want officiant. UTA A and so on. So it was interesting I think a few years ago. The General Counsel Cisco. Actually made a speech. Saying that he expected his. Lawyers Law firms who worked for the company to be reducing their fees year on year. Now, that's the opposite of what lawyers normally do, which is to raise them year on year. So say that that's one push which is. Very profound push now, coming from the client himselves who are using the beginning to use their procurement departments in in the companies and things like that to help purchase legal services the other aspects which is just as important in this is if you look at the role of lawyers and individuals. So if you is what access to to legal services, it's expensive lawyers are not cheap they charge our money We don't know how to judge the quality of their work and so on. because. There was a credence which we just know that So. On this is where technology can begin to step in and provide services which are. Efficient and often quite. what very well for the individual saying that this. Technology can be seen to be improving access to justice a Lotta people. Yeah. Yeah yes. I want to come back to this. John. I think this is a very important point. So bent on put has a lot of uncertainty. Uncertainty maybe not not the right term, but it's called deterministic. It shows beatty ability and so the determination of quality it's not as easy as hard media India nearing or. Right business economics legal all sorts of well foreign that category and the application of technology sort of a different different meaning there but I want to touch on one of the things that you say in the paper, and that is you mentioned this before and that's about training training the next generation. So you savior regulating bodies professions are involved in the collection and reproduction of knowledge intended to be used by the entire body professionals, and so there was an expectation here that you know seeing it professionals. Is Providing the wisdom that knowledge mission to train the next generation now in a technology driven. regime. discuss vacations right. Our expert is going to be a computer engineer in the future. And so so how does that work from from cleaning and knowledge Asian will I think this is This is a crucial issue in it's one which the profession hasn't. Really. Got To grips with yet I think because you think of technology in terms of Predictive analytics a document review and things like this most law schools are not preparing students for this they may be a a a a causal to on some aspect of technology, but it's not something which lawyers themselves are learning. So I think what is going to happen is we're going to find a blending of skills occurring. So law firms will be sense having to bring in a range of technologists who perhaps have. A scales a straddle, both sides of the lines, the lawyers like this too I think I think we're going to find an avangard Who will begin to develop skills that allow them to talk to both sides of the line, the tech people and? Below people if you likes and there will be people who will acquire develop these skills as well but that's that's still some way down the line I didn't think we're anywhere near there yet, and part of the reason for that I think is that you know law is still a very highly regulated profession and and the regulators themselves are in the same situation they are unsure about what is going to happen and they also feel they have an obligation to. Not only ensure that. Customers clients and consumers are protected but in some ways, the profession is protected to if you like so. You know it's it's a it's a fine balancing. There I. Think. It's a fight balancing act and you'd say if the changing changing things. So going back, you know you care as an individual eighteen status of expert. Some form of encapsulation of knowledge and analysis occurs enabling professional experts, derived diagnoses, decisions, and conclusion wrapped late. and you make some distinctions. Type of learning that. Human? Beings. That the distinction between doing drive and become a gift and laster Yes yes. Yes I think that's important. So the the the the principle behind this is that Individuals can acquire a lot of knowledge in in various areas. So as I say learning how to drive a car, you learn how to change gear you though with the speeds. Braking different rates, conditions, and things like that. So. If you WANNA take that further and become a formula one drive or something like that. Then you have to undergo a very different kind of training and that kind of thing becomes a lot more collective rather than individual because you start to you're you're going to be in a group that is gonna be doing a particular kind of our driving. If you like everybody in the group has to understand what each other is doing that group, you can't have people going right a racetrack at two hundred miles an hour or thinking individually feel like they have to have a collective consciousness. About. How to drive in that situation? That's nothing like how? You and I might drive. I'm not saying we bad drivers just saying spreading very different. So I think professional work is not. That different from this in a way. So once you you can go through school and you can do your law degree and you can learn your low. We can learn you engineering's this applies to or professions really. But in order to become a professional in order to become somebody who can operate function within that. Group if you like you then have yourself have to develop collective consciousness and and one way of thinking about it is that we we can kind of tacit knowledge. This assorted knowledge you learn on the job from people, which is not always articulated in a precise formulate kind way but it's something you pick up from the way. Somebody does something you just recognize aw that that's how they've done that might not be. Written down anywhere or anything like that. But you know that's different from now exiting differently from the way that wise doing I think X.'s doing it better I and you and you just, and you can absorb that. That's what I mean by this kind of tacit knowledge and that comes about from the professional context. As how the professional context develops becomes absolutely crucial to how you introduce new ways of doing things new my daddy's new skills new outlooks if you like and I. Think this is where we're on the cost of of this beginning to develop I mean we we know it's got to be done quite how it's going to be done. is yet to be. So. So let me make a statement John and I want I want your reaction to it so eat in hard sciences eight years against again medicine. Expertise has about a consistent happy of remorse. Whereas enor- economics and business in general, let's say expertise is not about the ability to apply rules but to deal with. and at and if that is true, it has lot of implications rate. It has implications as to how we might divide work. Between. And machine in the future. And the skills that universities need to impart on on on new graduates are also quite different. So I always argued in the business. engineering contexts that universities having changed the dog they get mentioned before they're using the same. Using the same. Out Thirty four years without asking the question are those skills relevant, anymore or more importantly watch. Really relevant for a human being in the future rate. do you agree with that that expertise assert more about dealing exceptions apply? Putting it actually. I. I can see the logic behind what you. Saying I think what distinguishes? A good professional whether it's a good engineer good architect or good lawyer or doctor is is somebody who has a certain? This may sound strange but it's the. Imagination. Creativity. about. Kind of flare that allows them to function on the nausea they they've got and developed over the years and the experience. Gathered from Nova pitching what they'd be doing over the years and so on, and it allows them to see around things in ways which they perhaps would. I can give you an example if you like a law. So I'm in in Germany and some other countries. For example, there's a particular way of bundling together mortgage securities I I won't go to detail about this, but this statute that enables you do it. And then you can sell these securities and get money. In certain countries, the UK, the US, and so on. This, NICI. So in a sense to put this kind of a a deal together it. Couldn't be done if you live. So a bank came to one of the large English law firms and said, look we wanted we want to replicate this in in the UK, want to set a market this we're not the statues off there. What can you do and what was interesting was that the law firm then went back to first principles lawyers who were looking at this went back I suppose they looked at some vape basic areas of law matter your trust. And contract from what have you? I'm from that they constructed elite supplement that looked very much like the one in Germany, but without stat sheet and they tested it and it worked. Out To be credibly successful. So much so that the German government started German legal profession started to complain because they said. You can only do this by statute and these we find a way of doing it three. I suppose using law and there it is an they were vowed shops by but that was a particular example if you like of of what you were talking about, they took the exceptions they went back to first principles and said you know or How would we get? This is where we gotta get to, and this is a way right at the beginning what are the steps we need to take and and? And that's what a good loyal will do if you. Right right? Yeah. So that's very important point. So you in your paper dawn as the DREYFUSS and rice note that the proficient performer immersed in the world of skillful activities sees what needs to be done. But decides how to do it. So as we move into a and other technologies, I think it's important point it is. Right from Dad benefactor culture we have been using humans as you mentioned before in lots of with meted activities big not designed for humans I would I would contend enjoy doing things over and over again, and if you had thought of doing that, yeah, because they have to do it for living right and so so we should be moving to word It would where anything that is with pita on delegated to the machine at automation in the bottom of that and Appealed autonation you can have intelligent automation you can have you know reinforcement learning those types of things you have some aspects of intelligence into the into the two. And deploy humans Don't Miss. They're really good at in some case. I'm. So you know we've been studying the green for ages be our no close. It feels to understand mother. Heck it does You know it's not neat learning it. Oh, BBC of. thirty years ago as see that person again, you could see you could you could have a feeling. Then you've seen that before and and what the brain has done actually not only as he that pattern but also age that matter intuitively for thirty years and say, yes, that face I, guess before. and. So there are some superpowers the brain has reaped have been applying the all all. So for a technology might allow. Look I. Think Technology will allow us to incredibly complex things without having to think about too much I. Mean if you look at the way a port functions, for example, any major port these days they've got millions of containers and ships going through them all the time. So there's a lot of paper going through the you those charter parties, bills of lading guarantees. So the lot of legal work that's being done it, it's all quite standard stuff. I mean everybody. KNOWS, what needs to be done and so on. Now, some people are beginning to think while the best way to handle a port if you like I for everybody should know is to put everything that's going on in the poor into a blockchain so that you can see the whole supply chain. You see when something comes in, you can determine when the goods are being offloaded. When they're being shipped, you can stop making the payments as a result of the. Operation of the smart contracts if you like, and the whole thing would be just one quite seamless. In some ways without that much human intervention really just need oversight Some bits of coordination so on. But at the moment is still a a lot of humans are vote in that shipping people, law people, all sorts of things which is. I think insane. That's a waste of resources. We know that there are people who have all kinds of problems that require that creative flair she like as so why waste money on the routine stuff when you could develop skills to the the real need if you like in that way? Yeah Yeah. So I, want that some that bit that John Blockchain, for example, as you mentioned. So so one reason especially in the professions like law and business humans have an advantage justice dimension of trust. and you know at least our generation we don't really. At eighty level, right. So so having that. Human human touch is still extremely important for us. Now, technologies like Blockchain, for example, actually allows that trust to be tensely decoupled, right? Yeah, and I think I think you're right. Look I. Think I mean one of the reasons we make contracts is because We, don't trust each other. So we we devised these documents with all the conditions in them. Something goes wrong. This is what will happen things like that and so on. What are the interesting things? You know people really rely on contracts are met you. You draw up a contract. And the to business people stick him in the drawer I never look at again less something really really fundamental goes wrong but they know sumit doesn't that never look at that again. So you say value of the contract, what did it actually do if you look at some of the Asian countries say like Taiwan or parts of China, you have a assistant coach Guanxi, which is where people developed effective relationships by knowing each other over a period of time around business that allows them to develop trust it. So You know there are different ways of of handling trust, but we we seem to spend a lot of time on trying to minimize something You know which we don't really do a lot of if you like. So I think one of the advantages of of blockchain is that it just it removes a lot of this from from the equation if there's certain things you know that can happen. as a result off if this thing that systems. Lead happened And you know. As, long as you've got oversight and you can see what's going on than. You don't need to be too concerned about it. It will just do what it needs to do in that way and So. Again. That's still very much in the early stages, but we are seeing situations where supply chains A shipping goods from one country to another can actually be done under smart contracts through a blockchain. Technology if you live. That that is now happening I associate goodful dealing with things like gum counterfeiting if you're. Producing. Particular high-quality could site move our phones or particular pharmaceutical products and so on you know it's one way of guaranteeing the quality of the product is you couldn't I say look you can examine the whole supply chain or the data is there. And you know his Eq- code look at it and you get the whole thing going all the way back The. Again, issues around that if you're dealing with the digital. Is Much easier once you start dealing with physical products then you have. A question of how do you get that first initial digitization of the physical if you'd like to goes on so though some people I know here in Australia who? Run A company called Beef Ledger, which is trying to export beef straight beef to China using the blockchain supply chain, which will. Guarantee the security, and the quality of the goods to the Chinese consumer APP because having problems with this before. But I will tell you now do doing something like that does require that the people you are dealing with. You're going to set this up with You have to have a trusting relationship with you before you can set up a technology that will do away with the So we're still in that. That's really early days. I think another a lot of time way to go right Yeah, but the technology works it. Clean potential one could argue contracts exist because they probably known performance if you have a technology that drives that probably the of non-performance zero, then you can actually get rid of for contract. Yeah limit. It is. Not. Goes back to that earlier point I made that. Most most contracts are fairly standard. You know a routine things they're there to. Record a series of transactions payments that have gone on between people without the to do much. If you like you know once you you're you're doing the business, the contract just kind of records that in perpetuity. So the small contract just takes that into a different area and an an actually does the whole implementation and execution without people to be involved in that too much and there's something goes wrong. But if it if it all goes right then back it is done you need to you don't you think about it Right. Yeah. Hasn't been jumping to another are forthcoming people globalization law at. A time of crisis in the? Global Lawyer and so in the say Nikolai Condom Nieve a Russian economists in the nineteen thirties believed the worst economy operates long sixty year cycles Then he called K. Braves. And you safeguarding coronavirus analysis, the fifth psycho young's from nineteen eighty to twenty thirty. It's you save twenty, nineteen forthcoming John You might have. I think so I think say because I, tell you off the what's happening this year I thought my good I couldn't My God. I was just. Owners because you know a contract device these waves up into into what he calls four seasons spring summer or winter at, and we're in the winter off this fifth cycle if you like this is. All the bad stuff happens and he's news war. Famine Disease I think wait a minute that sounds Yes yes. That's exactly right. A. But one of the interesting things about contractors was that you know he he a because he's A. Solid economists are installing a dip executed. By the way you know he he got fed up ninety that was the end of Nikolai unfortunately but he. He said instead of know if you like the ownership of the means of production are being the determinate for changeover from system system, he said it's it's technology and and that the technology will drive you out of the downswing of the last cycle into the upswing of the new cycle, and and the way that works is the win. You're in this kind of winter period because of the kind of economic. Gloom pervades if you like people tend to hold back in subsurface vestment in terms of technological innovation of what have you and so a lot of energy resources, resources, money capital if you like builds up to a second point when people say we're GONNA go for this is this is it? And that's when if you like technology comes to the fall on, really drives it forward. So from that perspective, what he's saying is that you know come right about twenty thirty. If. Things are going slowly now regarding technology they're going to speed up. In. This period and that's when it will. You know really also take take off and people have looked back over our preceding cycles and they've you know it works if you like not just their. Fantasy theory there are also the people who do Cleo dynamics in history these the quantitative historians and they've done a similar kind of analysis of historical periods and said, yeah, you know there are all these citrical. Processes that take place even revolutions occur and big upset occurs and what have you and and. One of their Perspectives which I find quite interesting is that they say one of the reasons for revolutions come about is caused a lease beginning to compete with each other and and an an I look at say trump in in America and I look at the Democrats and I I I would say Modine, India I look she in China and different groups of elites who are engaged really profound struggle for the future of their countries if you live. Out which again is leading to this kind of potential eruption of activity and a new ways of doing things. Yeah. It makes a lot of intuitive sense gone. So one way to think about this also. There are a lot of excesses. So innovating go good their excesses in the system people to believe that invincible they changed assumptions about. because they don't see any. and. Financial markets to right. So these cycles and real real mass that uniquely talking about you can see the. Happening in the financial markets more clearly. But what he's saying is that he happens mortgage and you ask in this paper in two thousand, nineteen for in many ways go. Crystallization off the settling ketone economic forces lost throat ear Kublai doomed as populous. Separates nationalism and lead clients and I think they have that we have probably the answer to that. But you see I think. One of the points I was trying to make an in in this paper walls that Global Law. If you like is is, is the a kind of synthesis off chaos? How do we bring some kind of order to chaos now once you start seeing the undermining? Of his global institutions, you see trump was withdrawn from the W. H. O.. He's he's are criticized NATO he he won't have the do with the International, Criminal Court and so we've got this kind of real life tension now between a an international legal order that's being built up since the Second World War both Ekit economic and legal order is Global And so we can't just a radical globalization I mean even even with covert, we can't eradicate mobilize ation we've got to. Handle covert the Kobe pandemic on a global basis. Otherwise, we'll. We're lost it retreats to a national. Approach is not gonNA. Work? We'll be defeated in that race is going to be global. Might. Be One of my questions in in paper was will who are the people who are going to be doing this? Kind of bringing the the order to chaos if you like and that made argument that it's got to be the global lawyer. And this is a person who not only understand their national legal system but also able to communicate with lawyers and officials. From around the world if you like. To be able to develop a kind of common. Language common discourse that enables them to stop putting these things together are, and it's not just a simple massa of saying mathematically, it works this way or not. It requires the kind of pulling together of people, but it requires that sort of common understanding which. Comes out of what I was saying about this idea of testing knowledge you know as you got this kind of professional consciousness you know how people ought to behave and how they will interact with you, and then that enables you to be out of bizarre to predict how you can do things and so on and so on. That basis I think we can operate kind of global order. It had a a below the institutional level if you're not kind of private. As opposed to the public according and that will put three. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah you know I the limit John I don't know if you think this way I limit one could as. Want to stay need for. Countries what does the need for legal system differentials? We set this up with the premise that it's easier to manage small chunks. one could also argue with Edmund Affect. -nology that you don't need to segment this debate that we have done. which might make these types of issues you know. See where you're coming from and I'm going to say yes or no? Yes, I think the home range of of questions that can be handled by the technology the ones we got pay I don't chain, etc. I don't I didn't see any issues there but there are a lot of decisions that needs to be made a book in terms of putting things together and resolve disputes that can only function at a human level because it's not. These are not decisions that are simple binary decisions. If you'd like, it's yes or no it's it's often a lot more nuance than complex about I mean, one of the resources in the World Kiva Zero System, the world amendment which is being fought over if you like is water, a water is probably one of the most valuable resources anywhere and it's you often find that rivers and things like that sort of flow between countries, they form borders. And and you are you know people if you look at the Nile, ESL start stopping in Sudan throwaway down to the Mediterranean. So he goes to countries all three countries, east European and then into Egypt's and so unwell well, who has the right to put it dime at a particular place and things like that all of that has to be cooled in act. You see a not going to be done at a human level that that's what caused the skills in negotiation judgment interpretation understanding if you like of the other people, no machine can do that I got. Yes before we conclude, I want to touch on one other thing So in the paper, you say as technology and culture intersect more and more. Ethical conundrums will intensify these raising questions about the rights and obligations of robots. And go beyond as moves. Three laws of robotics in two issues of rights of all moon. Algorithm, stem serves. So this is this is an area that be Kevin babies even even really form some notions allowed rights of all modes at rights of a are. Sai, gets more sophisticated. Yes. Yes. I do. I, mean I think this is one of the issues we already know some of the problems with algorithms and and you know can we can be are they transplanted from you see what's going on the ethical issues around the construction and implementation of algorithms and things like that. But I I I think looking into the future we all going to rely on things like robots. And various kinds of machines so much more so that if you look at a country like Japan, which is a a an aging population such that it doesn't have sufficient younger people to look after the people who need looking often. So machines, I'll be part of that, and that means people will stop forming real relationships with machines and and so that's when I would say. Okay. So let's think about how we View a potential rights of machine that we give. We give rise to humans. Yes. We know that we give rights to animals. Now we've also given rights to viz in forest in some countries as well as so machines I think our. Next logical step you know do we do we treat them with respect Let me give you one. Very classic example yet the production of. Robots for sex if you like is a major industry at the moment, some manufacturers say they want to program them say that people can act out rape fantasies will do we want that I? Mean you know should we be at first of all? You know? We should be having people behave in this particular kind of way, but even an uncertain if you do it against another human being, you'll be punished for it and you say we'll a machine is a piece of property you should be you should be doing that but I'm getting to think that maybe a machines should be treated with dignity say that we are treat ourselves with. Dixie. This a kind of reflexive situation here what we? Do to machines we do to each other, and they may again due to US depending on how they evolve and and move forward in that way is a very contentious issue. A lot of people would reject that right out of hand I agree I think we've got to stop thinking about stop dining forward because I. think we're going to at some point again. I. Don't know when. But at some point we will be having to deal with that. It's a it's a very important point. Joan. So if I understand you correctly, you know that the rights to animals the rights to inanimate. INANIMATE things like Lubers The recent those exist is because of its effects on humans and can see video a clear link in the future we would see a very clear link between a algorithms and robots ended affects on human. So this is not me You know each not fantasy in the sense that yeah, robots should have rights, but rather it's a more conceptual question. Any fraud did not have rights each going to cabin negative I I think that's absolutely true. I mean just to highlight that if you like this firm called Boston Dynamics that produces. Robots and they produced these videos of these. Now, these robots are resistant being pushed over and things like that, and it was quite interesting because a lot of people say all you can't treat them in this way. This is awful and so what I mean that that's the answer for more fighting to to the extreme extent. But it I think you know on the basis what you're saying, you know how we Oakland. Hold human beings accountable to each other in an increasingly complex world machines have become part of that. We can't just have them all sitting on the edge as though they're not part of who we are, what we are and how we do things. Right. So. Incursion Johnny fuel sort of look forward five years. At. The intersection of law and technology. But you think people see sort of the biggest. I. Think you'll see it two wins. On the you know for the individual The individual, you're going to see a lot of them just interacting. With artificial Tennessee, say lost questions about what my rights for this how do I deal with a tendency agreement? How do I complain against a producer company or something like that or that's going to be automated? is fairly straightforward to do and and it will only need A. Minimal. Amount of human inside of. An intervention if you like. At the other end at the. In I think we're GONNA see more and more technology coming in because as those basic functions that are. Being, carried out by junior people or or paralegals or things like that are the ones which are going to be increasing, automating creasing. I'm. We will replace the humans and just let machines do that because there's no point in wasting human resources on that whether that means we need fuel or more lawyers That's an open question I think it will that we need different kinds of lawyers We will need Roy Moore to logically aware much more sophisticated. They don't it's be programmers or odors or anything like that, but they need to have a quite a a a a strong understanding and gross what's going on in technology in that way if you like so. Yeah. We can definitely see an. Yeah, so I, think you mentioned the so from a structure perspective in all forum DC law firm sprucing to word. It a group of equity partners. Around it by machine so to speak well, I. Think. I was in that paper or another one I. I'm S-. Forecast. Law. Firms. Being. Distributed decentralized we'll tournaments organizations running on a blockchain with with the various people. into setting when they will no I. Think the law firm is still a very strong and powerful is Shutian, that's not gonNA disappear straight away. But certainly the numbers of partners who control things will shrink. They'll that will get smarter as proportion and yes, they will be surrounded by machines and they surrounded by people who are servicing those machines. Your excellent. Yeah. Thanks for doing this weekend. John really enjoyed the conversation. Thank you very much. It's been great fun and very

No trick-or-treating this Halloween in Los Angeles County due to COVID-19
"Have some news that involves Children here in Los Angeles County. Where Randy the county government, the Board of Supervisors and fake doctor Barbara Ferrer have officially canceled Halloween.

Also not permitted is something called trucker Trading where Children go from car to car instead of door to door Now, I've never heard of trunk or treating, but that sounds like some stranger danger right there. Gatherings or parties with non household members. That's not permitted, even if they're conducted outdoors, no carnivals, no festivals, no live entertainment and, of course, no haunted house attractions. In fact, the haunted hayride in Griffith Park is gonna be a drive through this year. So what is allowed You can have an online party in a contest like online zoom costume contest. You could be in. Ah, following car Parade, Khun even have Ah, dress up your car in a costume and have judges Judge it. You can have a Halloween movie night at the drive in theater. Maybe they go see earnest, scared, stupid Halloween theme meals at outdoor restaurants that that's something you can do as long as that restaurant is operating with the protocols that they operate outdoors. Even when it's windy out. Following themed art installations and outdoor museums that's going to be allowed. You're allowed to dress up your home with Halloween decorations, but you can't actually enjoy Any Halloween. Now It doesn't say anywhere that you can't eat candy. But imagine eating the amount of candy that the average person eats during Halloween, and you're not walking off those calories by trick or treating.
Sleeping Soundly and White Grapefruit
"The. Forbidden Fruit. The, smaller Schadeck. One of the Seven Wonders of Barbados. The grapefruit has been called many things in its history. And compared to the lemon or the orange. The grapefruit is a fairly recent addition to the citrus family. It was first spotted on the island of Barbados in seventeen. Fifty. By. Reverend Griffith. Hughes who documented his find in his book the Natural History of Barbados. Now, the genetic origin of the grapefruit is actually a hybrid mix. One, ancestor of the grapefruit was the Jamaican sweep orange. which is itself an ancient hybrid of Asian or inns The other was the Indonesian Pummel. One story of the fruits origin is that a certain captain attic brought Pablo seeds to Jamaica and bread the first fruit. Although it's more likely that it probably originated as a naturally occurring hybrid between the two plants sometime after they had been introduced there. The grapefruit like all citrus fruit is a Hispanic them or a large modified berry with a thick rind. And was known only as the shattuck until the nineteenth century. So, how did it come to be known as the Grapefruit As it turns out. It's a relatively new occurrence. The first etymology of the name grapefruit is from an eighteen fourteen book by John Lunen where it was said to have the name because of its resemblance in flavor to the grape. But that doesn't really make sense because anyone who's tasted a grapefruit knows that that isn't true. Most scholars think that he was just attempting to explain the origin of a name he ran across. The most popular belief for where the name comes from is that it actually refers to the shape of the fruit not the. Grapefruits grow on the tree in clusters, which often are said to appear similar to grapes. But there are only a few other languages that make the leak between grapefruits and grapes. In Romance Languages. Grapefruit usually shares the same name as its ancestor. The pomerleau. For example, pomp them Oh in Italian and pump Mussa and Spanish. In, fact Romanian is the only romance language to distinguish between the two. A. Few other languages have also adopted the American word grapefruit even though they don't have the same word for grape. Examples of these are Dutch Swedish and Turkish. But this has led some etymologists chiefly John Cardi to suspect that grapefruit is also named after the Pomerleau. The Pablo, scientific. Name. Is Citrus Maxima. which can reasonably be translated as great fruit. A reference to both the Pablo and the fruit size. After a few decades that may have gotten corrupted into grapefruit. But we may never really know for sure. Unlike other earlier citrus fruits like the orange, the lemon and the lime the grapefruit received a rather cold reception. Although already swimming and citrus at the time most fruit lovers and Florida found the grapefruit to be too sour to enjoy on a regular basis. As a result, it was not widely planted when the Florida citrus industry was rapidly expanding. In fact, the grapefruit was just considered an exotic novelty fruit until the late nineteen twenties.

You know it's one of those things that minor league baseball like everybody else. We haven't had any business as far as the though so we're always throwing out ideas. And actually we were the owner and his daughter. We were sitting in the office. Filling out ideas and randomly the hair airbnb came up and it was like well. Yes, we can run with this. And we just started running with. It happened about three weeks ago and you know with everything being on true lockdown. We were just planning for eventually. We will open up once. We opened up what you may do and this was one of the ideas that we came up with. And, it's been going well. What is the cost per night to rent the stadium? We fifteen hundred dollars for ten people to be able to sleep in the clubhouse. You abandon cage, and of course used to field as well one of the great things. We have as well as a lot of upgrades that you're able to have their. You can have a fireworks show. You could have a movie night. You can have a set up just like you know.

The people get to use the ballpark and of course for us, you know the big thing is meeting on mission to improve the quality of like not merely and and being able to let people have that ability to come there for pretty affordable price and get to being in the stadium, and and of course jobs you know that that's key and making sure that we're able to employ people, and and even have jobs at the Blue Office Jonathan. What's the response been since these nights became available? Pretty Amazing not only immediate pension. Wise. We've been literally worldwide. We were Japan. Canada. But we, we sold out our first thirty three nights within twenty four hours. And we've actually. Reservations because of the fact that we don't. We'll have based on July and August, and show then we'll be starting in the fall and then fortunately, unfortunately, we have a college football team that plays here as well University of Florida, so we're kind of working around everything to make sure that we don't have football players or baseball players dinner..
