If You'd 'Hate To Think'...Then Don't! Just Focus on Doing Better!
"To think how much money i would have today if i had have saved. Just five percent or ten percent of every dollar that has passed through my hand. I would also hate to think about how much money. I've lost on exchange rates in bank charges and transfer fees as a result of living working overseas for so many years and it also had to think about how much time i've spent wasted just looking at the luggage carousel waiting for my luggage to come off all because i refuse to leave out of a carry on on a week business trip i would hate to think about all of those things and so i died for most of us the idea of trying to quantify the degree to which we've lost all messed up doesn't really serve a purpose for most of us it simply enough to acknowledge the fact that we could have done better. We should have done better and we can do better and we will do better. That's usually enough so dwelling on how much you've lost or how much you missed up doesn't really serve a purpose except maybe to add to the frustration and add to the pressure. It's probably not required so you'd hate to think about all of those things and many more just dying
US Cruises Could Restart Soon With 'Passenger Voyages by Mid-July'
"We found out that cruising might restart emit july with ninety. Five percent of passengers fully vaccinated. Long story short. What happened. Was that usa today. Gunman hands on a letter that was sent from the cdc to the cruise industry late at night. I believe it was wednesday and so this was like the east coast had already gone to bed and we. We're talking after eight. Pm pacific time. This news came out so we waited to film a video until we got more facts on. I believe thursday morning and it turned out that it was completely true. And that most everyone in the cruise industry received this letter. Believe it was from amy. Truffle letty who is the head of the maritime unit for cdc's cove nineteen response team and the letter basically said five k. We'll articles on our website with videos about this. But here's the breakdown. Ships can bypass the required simulated voyages. That were supposed to carry volunteers and jump straight to sailings with paying passengers. If ninety eight percent of the crew and ninety five percent of passengers are fully vaccinated k. Well we talked about in our videos. Where does this leave children. Because we know that kids under sixteen can't get the vaccine right now. The truth is we just don't know. All of the details are pending. Next cd said they were going to respond to applications from the cruise lines for simulated voyages within five days. Which was supposed to take sixty days before. So you're probably wondering. What are you talking about it that you just said that simulated voyages weren't necessarily anymore. Well after listening to the cruise line executives throughout the week what we learned that the cdc is giving them two paths they can take the almost fully vaccinated path to get back to cruising sooner. Or if they don't wanna do that they can still do simulated forages and they'll get a faster response from the. Cdc that's my understanding
From Working on Oil Fields to Passively Investing in Real Estate with Travis Watts
"Traffic's for people that don't know what the differences between passive and active investing brigadier. What does it mean to be a passive investor. Sure i would define that as not having an active role in the actual business of what it is. You're investing in so for example. Let's say you buy a stock you buy. I dunno apple stock. you're not the ceo. You're not an engineer. At apple year in no way shape or form actually impacting the business yourself individually or having to work or exchange for money. You're a passive investor. You just owning a fractional share of that company and being hands off in the process in the sharing in the profits and success of the company. Same thing could be related to real estate. I invest in real estate syndications or real estate. Private placements were another team. Is out there finding the deal. Running the operations finding the property management finding the contractors. I'm just a passive investor in the deal giving him some money to help that be successful in sharing in the profits. Not having to do all of that on my own. Like i used to do. I think that everyone can see. That travis is not a rookie anymore. He is a pro at this. And that's why we brought him on as we want to give you guys some insight some knowledge as to where you can be where you can go with your real estate. Investing in travis's really gonna kind of break down. What he does and how he has made a passive for him so travis what was that first mindset shift. Were you decided. I don't want to be hands on. I don't wanna be active anymore. And i wanna go towards the passive side. Yeah that's kind of funny story. So at first i just thought to things i need to make as much income as i can make so that i can start investing in the number two. I thought i can do it all myself. I don't know why. I thought that that was so naive of me but i just wanted to bounce it and i just thought i can flip a house. I can run a vacation. i can manage tenants. I can do all this without really having the backing to support

Best-Practices for Discovering Valuable AI Opportunities
"So adam blad to have you back with us here on the program. I really enjoyed our last chat about these strategic advantage of data. We've got a couple of good topics to start with today. I wanted to kick us off on the theme of building executive. Ai fluency the show including your last episode to try to get smarter and be able to enable this stuff in their business when you think about you know executive teams leaders who might not be technical building a affluency wiz that involve for you. What do people have to learn to make stuff work. Yeah thanks for having me back then. A good question. I think about in terms of sort of a constellation of potential business problems that you would want to attack with ai on the one hand and then a bunch of data on the other hand and the process of assessing those business problems assessing the data and then assessing the potential bridges between the two. And that's the sort of image that i have in my head when i think about identifying a opportunities We can dig it on each of those so if you think about the sort of business needs like what are the brake problems to target with machine learning with the mostly you're looking for a well formed problems with measurable impact so i sort of negative example would be. I just wanna understand my business better. Well okay i. What are the units of understanding here and how. It actually measure. Whether or not. I've accomplished us. You can certainly slice up that problem and find good sort of a opportunities within that problem. But as a general like that's the project it's not really well formed and doesn't have measurable impact a good example would be something like i want to reduce the average time it takes a user to perform some specific task and in fact that's a great example from a class of problems that are often really good targets for machine learning inside of a product which is still look for user friction or look for dead ends basically any place where a user is asked to make a decision or perform some repetitive tasks. Those are good opportunities for automation. And i think this is maybe sort of unsexy application of ai. But it's a really good one at a lot of people on a chase after the shiny new product or the shiny new feature. Those are usually more expensive and harder to get traction for but if you look at all of the places in your product where repetitive workflows or really just unpleasant or difficult for users. those are great

I think about forty five years ever since i first started teaching yoga and nama stay hot derived from sanskrit. It's an expression of reverence and it's often translated that the the light in me bows to light in you and i love this. I often think about how in the west we have a handshake.

New Tesla Powerwall, China Protest, Volkswagen Investigation
"Year and stay. We've got some news. On tesla energy. A new energy product actually called the power while plus we'll go through the details on that then we also have an update on the situation on the protest in china and some news on volkswagen slash volkswagen. I stay for tesla stock today especially in a downmarket. Tessa finishing up almost five percent. I green day sense earnings to seven hundred nine dollars. Forty four cents that compared to the nasdaq down about nine tenths of a percent. Interestingly on the rise today this was the highest volume day for tesla of the week and sense earnings about forty million shares trading hands. Even though fridays in general tend to be about five to ten percent less volume as we learned during the s. and p. five hundred inclusion analysis period. So interesting to see that. I didn't see a whole lot of news that would have driven the stock today. But oftentimes things that are not. News-based are what's driving the stock right. So let's talk about the power wall plus this was posted yesterday on reddit by user tang. Who said that they were just finalizing their designed for tessler today in san interesting thing power while plus they have shared at the spec sheet for the power while plus and this is a different product than tesla shows online with the power while to now a lot of the specs are the same here but what it looks like tesla has done has integrated some of the components that previously would have been separated in what looks like a continued effort to increase the ease of insulation. We heard yulon talk a lot about this. On tests earnings call and of course we had heard from on the week prior on twitter that tesla solar whether the solar glass roof or rooftop solar would only be sold with an accompanying power wall on the earnings call. Ilan said that he believes this is the most important thing about the solitary of situation noting that installations would be much easier because power from solar would only ever go to the power wall then the power. Walt self would be the only thing that we need to interact as a power supply to the house. Or interact with the grit. It sounds like increasing. The power capability of the power wall was also a key component. Here so not changing the energy but allowing it to provide greater power to be able to handle peak power

How to Get Your Customers Trust Back With Margot Bloomstein
"Trust and credibility are under attack throughout our society. And this and this cynicism hurts every small business regardless of whatever industry. You're in what can we do to counter this trend here to help as margot bloom stein. One of the leading voices in the content strategy industry. She's the author a book called trustworthy. How the smartest brands beat cynicism margot. Welcome to the show. You know margaret so much hope. When the internet first came hours it got finally. There's going to be a source of truth when someone says something i'll look it up and we'll figure out whether or not the problem now is that you can find any truth. You want on the internet a lot. Whole lot of artisanal troops be answered that and not all high quality information. I think that's that's a big part of the problem. As well as the opportunity of the internet we've democratized access to publish. Everybody can have a voice in. Everyone does so now we have to ask. How do we had. We debt that information and so much of that responsibility now is in the hands of the users kind of become buyer. Beware more go eat. I think that specially consumers were so used to not trusting anything we see or read. How does a small business build any kind of trust or credibility with a new prospect or customer. Especially when there's so much cynicism out there. I think the best way that small businesses can counter cynicism and. This is really a lot of a lot by focus in the kind of work that i do is by looking at not. Just how they can focus on their own message but how can focus on the needs of their audience so the more we can do to empower our audiences the more that we could do to empower consumers to make good decisions than feel good confident about the decisions that they make the more that we will gain their trust.
"hands" Discussed on Slate's Dear Prudence
"That's pleasure over like restriction. Definitely yeah like he's he's pushing us straight into her arms. He'd the things that i mean and it was referenced right. It was the the husband was like. It's worse than if you cheated. And in a way i mean i. I'm sure that the i'm sure that the structure of the argument was you knew that this was a boundary and the unstated portion of it was in the boundary. Was supposed to come with a guarantee that we would never discuss this that this would be a verboten topic and that was the nature of the pain was that he would me so by discussing this thing that you know that i hate that. I was asking you implicitly and without words to to never talk about so yeah time to talk it out. Time to take away some of the mystery. Yeah and you know good luck. I hope that your husband does not often respond to agreements about what you're going to do together like this Because this sounds like a real potential area for growth for him the way. I'm just like going through this. Just like i'm prepared for sheltering in place to last another ten months. I'm prepared for it to last nine months. You know. I'll just count backwards. I'm just totally Ready to do whatever is required staying at home wise. So in the meantime i wanna get to these letters and our first one. I think if you don't mind reading for us is is perhaps the most topical one that we have sure the subject is. Oh now i'm essential. Dear prudence worked at a well known grocery store chain for ten years now i went to college. Graduated early and got a job teaching. I didn't like the job for many reasons. When i left added quick money landed on a grocery store job over the years. I've learned all. I could and moved up to a good position and make good money. Amazing co workers. I take pride in what i do. My family specifically my mother as always with down on my decision she will send me online applications to further my degree and offer help so i can start a career. That's more substantial with pandemic. I am now considered an essential employer praising i do social media posting that grocery store workers like her daughter are heroes. I really do appreciate this. trust me. i am scared but it truly hurts that this pandemic to happen from other to be proud of what i do. Do i try and explain this to her or just thank earn wash hands. I a loved. This is the subject line. It's like oh now. I'm essential which is not to say that this is like a fun or a funny problem. I i recognize the real humor in like the immediate pivot from like. What kind of job is this. When are you going to grow up and get a real jobs. Like oh my god. You're a hero. thank you. Excuse me everyone. My daughter works at grocery store. Like just that now that she realizes she can get a little social capital out of this one. She's so proud of you and it's just like i. I hope you give yourself at least a little permission letter writer to just fuck in socket in. Yeah i mean. I think society as a whole is going to have to you know now and as this pandemic ends revisit their conceptions of different work and the value that they play. Yeah i absolutely think that you have every right to bring this up to your mother. I think the most important thing to bear in mind will be. It's it's about clarifying with your mother. What kind of comments. You're not gonna put up within the future and letting her know how her behavior in the past affected you that i think is a reasonable and achievable goal. And then when it comes to something like i want my mom to understand and share my values. That is the sort of thing that you have to say. I don't get to control that and let them go so absolutely say mama's happy as i am that you've been Appreciative of my work. I just also remember that not that long ago you were really putting it down and that hurt and. I hope that you won't do that wants. This particular crisis has passed that you can say maybe her response to that will be a little defensive. Maybe she'll say oh my god you're right. I'll never do it again. And she won't maybe she'll say oh my god you're right i'll never do it again and then in two years she does it again and you'll have to say like hey remember when we talked about this but absolutely i think you can do it. Yeah i think that in any relationship always benefits from having more honesty and communication about. What's important. But i would encourage the letter writer to focus more on the relationship with the mother and how the comments made her feel as opposed to why she didn't value the work before and things like that. I think it should be more about the feelings emotions than anything else sure. Yeah absolutely that makes a lot of sense to me And then also. I hope you can give yourself a little time if you feel agitated about it This is definitely a conversation. You could have tomorrow. You could have in a week. You could have in a month so really. I think it's up to you to decide. Like when do i feel kind of emotionally prepared. And when does my mom see like she's relatively non agitated given your living in times of great crisis but yeah absolutely you can say something and if in the future your mom sense you career advice that you don't want you have every right to you. Know say i appreciate that. You mean well. But i don't want this anymore and i will be deleting any future career advice you send me and you know i have had a couple of like well. Meaning parents don't want to let me have this thing questions lately and i think often what it comes down to like. How do i convince my parents to let me have this space or this respect this autonomy and i think one of the hard things is. They won't ever give it to you. That's why you have to take it for yourself. And their first reaction is not going to be. What a great idea. So glad. you're taking this thing for yourself. It's gonna be you know resistance and the real struggle. The real problem is how do i go ahead with whatever i need. Whether that's setting a boundary ending a conversation declining to hear someone else's unsolicited advice. How do i force myself to do it. When i'm worried about making my parents upset with me or or risking their disapproval. And i think you're well set up to withstand a little bit of your mother's defensiveness or disapproval. I think you'll get through a beautifully. And i hope that you stay safe at work you based on this question. I wasn't sure if they already had a conversation about this or not. But i think that now maybe the lines of communication and focus on grocery workers might also help to. Maybe she could talk more about what it is. She does and why she likes it. And maybe that will lead to a change in the types of conversations. they are having. Yeah and you know he just. I know lots of people who who work in food service in grocery stores have already talked about the way that language like the language of heroism Is often offered in. Lieu of lake. a living wage or decent health insurance or adequate protections in a pandemic. And so that might also be worth.
"hands" Discussed on Hands-On Tech
"A flat area or he'll hilly area something that's going to be more comfortable for you and even with the actual pedal assist. There's those a couple of different levels of that to figure out if you want more assists or less assists and i've cranked it all the way up to the most assistance on here and it's good but you still have to keep in mind. You are going to be doing the work on this bicycle. So don't think this is going to be a moped. D software was recently updated to turn off the feature. That allowed you to override your regional speed limit settings on here here in california and particularly in the us that you do have a speed limit in california to speed limit is set to twenty miles per hour which is totally fine forest and e by it goes so if you peddling along on the trail and you wanna hit your assistance on it. It's going speed you up but it's going to cap out at twenty miles per hour With this beat assistance. You can peddle faster than that if you want. But there is a cap on the actual e assistance. So just keep that in mind. Personally i don't think you need to be going that much faster on a bike if you're just doing commuting because of your own safety because the safety of others around you but that's just me you do you. I'm not going to do that. The at twenty miles per hour cap is is fine for me for my use and more with the app it has a security feature built into it. The bike has a what's called a kit.

"This is a bit of a cruiser bike. So you don't necessarily want to be leaning over as you ride in the spike because this is a cruiser slash commuter bike. This isn't a street racer anything so you want. Those handlebars to be lifted up to give you much more comfortable ride over an extended amount of time. These suspension on this bike does not exist. Because this not that type of bicycle. So if you're gonna ride over some rough areas in your town you're going to feel the bumps and things like that but it's not terribly bad as long as we have decent pressure in your tires It it's the handling. It's totally fine but again. Don't try to make dissonant stream bite because that's not what this is designed for. This is designed for the commuter. This is designed for the person living in town trying to go from eight e and back to point a. s. about it nothing extreme here. I do like the fact that it comes with some vendors tires because that means you can ride in wet weather you can ride this e bike in the rain safely because everything is really really covered up and secured and it has defenders on to help protect you from getting splashes from the tires where it's mud and extra water and things like that s another. Mary very nice touch now. I was able to to get.

"Mile an hour or faster what having you need to make a quick stop. You hit these breaks. You are going to stop. there is no lock up. There's no sputtering in just hoping these things will grab these are really really high performance hydraulic brake systems here. Desgrippes on these handlebars feel really. Good if you wanted to ride around for a couple of hours. to cushion Quite comfortable in his not. Something that feels is not something. That's gonna make your hands fuel all slippery sweaty. Like some handlebars will do. I've i used to ride mountain. Bikes quite often back in my air quotes younger days and that was always a concern for me. I used to have to glows because to grip on. The handlebars would just get a bit too unsafe for me because they would get so slippery. That's not the case with this s three here The bike does come with the a lithium ion battery to charge it up too. So you can use to pedal assists in. That's one bit of a drawback on the s three because the battery is is tightly integrated inside of the tube in a frame which looks good. But if you need to charge the battery up you have to literally put your whole bike over to wherever your power charging station is. You can't just remove the battery charge. The battery individually. So you have to park the bike somewhere and plug it in just like you would. If you were doing say tesla. I've been watching a couple different reviews and a lot of people have said the same thing far as this is being more like. They tesla of bikes. Just because of the way this thing is designed it is so sleek it is so smooth even down to the way you charge it up. You'd literally have to put it in his own corner to charge it up this a standard. Ac power cord but it still just seems like a bit of a pain in the butt to make sure that you can plug it in with the whole unit. Sit right there. Instead of removing the battery it comes with standard pedals. It comes with a headlight in a tail light. It also comes with a couple of reflectors depending on where you live and you can attach those. I didn't attach their reflect this year. I didn't think it was necessary because it has the integrated tale like in headlights on it. That you can turn off in on of just you know. Leave it on all the time. What have you. And what the regarding the headline. I did like the fact that it's something this this attached to the actual tubing of the bike. So if my turn my handlebars the writer to the left. This -essarily mean the Headlamp was gonna turn with my handlebars turn with the body. This is good with you. Know depending on the type of at gerard and in a time of day..

"This it's just a little faster a little more responsive A little snappier and a little more incompatible. I feel like apple is going to go down an interesting road here. Because they've locked it down in new and unique ways with big sur even the intel macs gatekeeper and so forth They're really doubling down on security but by doing so they're also meeting a lot making a lot of the open source in oddball programs. Not run as well or in some cases not run at all and there and there are some interesting edge cases in a little disappointing craig. Federica the reveal was talking about how fast this starts up. It is absolutely instantaneous. It's so fast that you can't really tell is waking from sleep. You can't really tell it feels like it was on all the time you have to do it very quickly to see the screen. Come on he comes on so quickly. All of that is kind of a lifestyle improvement. But it's not like the old macs were that slow. So i don't feel like yes it snappy. I don't feel like this is like. Wow my life is going to change and in some respects. The incompatibility is is also a problem. So i one of the man you know there's a there's a phases you go through with new apple hardware. There's of course the initial reality field with the announcement where it all seem so exciting. Then reality starts to sink in a little bit but it's still very exciting the day unbox it and you say wow. I've got the new thing and then over time. Maybe some additional reality sets in. And i think i might want to amend my voice advice to people it is not worth running out to get this right now In fact if you have an in a late model intel. Mac your good for some time. It's gonna take a while for all the apps to be updated some of the edge case apps to be fixed before they really run as well. You're also much more locked down. I wonder in the long run if we're going to be able to do things like install windows in these machines are lennox. I don't think so. You're going to have emulate era. Emulation can have hyper visor and vm-ware's fusion and parallels that allow you to run operating systems in ambulation but this is really designed to be almost an appliance computer. It's a macintosh and there's not much under the hood that you can mess with. It is the way that it is if you run. Stock apple apps or well-known apps like microsoft office. I'm running the microsoft office here in the beta version the insider betas. So it's eight if yeah it's fast it's snappy let me launch Word or excel. Here you can see how fast it is.

"Well it's finally here in my hands. This is the apple. Mac book pro. This is the thirteen inch model apple. Has you know announced Just a couple of weeks ago. Three new macintosh computers a macbook air macbook pro. Thirteen inch and a mac mini. I decided to go for the macbook pro first of all because i wanted a laptop but second of all because this is the best battery life apple claiming as long as twenty hours of non-stop video watching Plus it also had even though it had the same m one chip in as the macbook air because it had active cooling and actually as a fan Promised better performance. Well you could probably clock a little bit higher now. Apple's never released information about clock speeds. They barely talked about this chip in the same terms that we talk about. Perhaps an intel computer but this is the first example of apple macintosh running chips designed by apple. And i can say without reservation. It's as amazing as everybody said. It's snappy it's fast I'm not a big fan of the touch bar but i have to say The keyboard is is everything that It should be. It's not that horrible butterfly keyboard. I mean maybe they're calling it the butterfly three but it's got decent travel has a decent field is much more like the twenty twenty macbook air. That apple released the beginning of this year. that's actually what i've been using. That is what i replace this with. Funny thing this is identical to the macbook pro thirteen with intel inside down to the parts effect. I fix it when they took the support. Said it's the same exact fan but this fan never gets fast enough to hear it. And i did a lot of challenging stuff on this including building some very complicated motion templates. I had one that ran for two and a half hours to render Never heard the fan wants. Never never heard the fan. It did on that two and a half hour render get a little bit warm to the touch Typically macbooks warmest here On the wrist rests and on the back it was warm. It was never hot never uncomfortable just kind of comfortably. Warm these chips have a lot of headroom. And they're very very fast if i launch native silicon mac apps Let's let's Let's launch the activity monitor. That's a native app At you'll see that it it runs. It launches almost instantly and runs very quickly There's no hesitation using this. Even the rosetta to apps that are running in emulation are faster than they are. On the comparable intel macintosh. These are really really fast machines. Everything seems snappy. It's not like the older machines. Felt particularly slow to me. You won't really notice the big speed improvement until you're doing something that takes minutes or even hours then then you'll notice But indeed operation really the only thing you notice is how snappy everything is how fast everything operates. Now one of the reasons. It's good to launch. this activity. monitor is because there's a column here called architecture and you can see whether the program that's running of the process. Running is an intel process or an apple process. Almost everything. I'm running is apple. Because in many cases the intel processes don't run all that. Well i am using a few things for instance our sponsor last pass..

"Hello folks I am at Pruitt in this has on here on TV hope. You're doing well unbelievable as always end today. I want to share with you. Another laptop that I got my hands on that I think might be something. You're interested in typically when I look at laptops. I'm always looking from the. Perspective of a content creator because I'm a content creator, but I do understand that everybody's not content creators. Some people just WanNa laptop dish just going to get the job done well. That's this laptop today. An is the acer spin five laptop. This thing is a very very nice low cost, but premium quality laptop. You'RE GONNA. Get displayed at his thirteen point five inches. It is a led. Led backlit Ip, s display running two K resolution so as hired, and than the regular ten eighty p dechy used to, but is not quite four K.. This is plenty of pixels in his plenty of detail. It's going to allow you to be able to get work done or if you just WanNa have some fun time with good on Netflix or Hulu enjoy it that way as well. This laptop again it. It's so small it's only thirteen and a half. Inches does not particularly something that I roll with. About fifteen inch display, and that's just what I'm comfortable with, but if give you look at this thing here, it is small, but it's not terribly small, even with my big hands as we look here at the at the actual layout of it, my hands fit comfortably on the keyboard. It does have a backlit keyboard, so it s great for using it in the evening or something like that. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner that you that works well with windows hello. This is a win those laptop. This is not a chromebook or anything, but it does have a bit of a chromebook feel to it because it is again. super-duper small, not terribly thick. It's only about maybe four millimeters on the thickness side spirit very nice when you look at it here, but the build quality on. It is where they keep the cost down to claimed that this is a metallic finish on this device. It doesn't really feel Metallica me. Sort of feels a bit plastic key in a little bit thin, if I opened a keyboard backup, open the lid back up here. You're not that you can get a little bit of flex on this device here, so it begs the question like wow, this thing is it? It could be a little bit on the cheaper side from a build quality, but. I will take that considering dash bit of horsepower that is packed into. This device is coming with the quad. Core Intel. Core, I seven running at one point six gigahertz now. No one point six GIGAHERTZ is not terribly fast, but there's a reason for that. Just just bear with me. One Point one point six. Gigahertz is going to this particular model comes with six hundred gigs of Ram. Other model that it has that set a lower price. Point comes with eight gigs of Ram. Still good value and it also allows you to have up to a terabyte of SSD storage using a in the drive, but if you want to go with the lower model. You can get a half a terabyte five twelve gigs for your storage on there, so he's really really good, and I mentioned point seven Gigahertz speed. Being something is not terribly fast or powerful. That's okay, and it makes sense because you have up to fifteen hours of battery life. As a lot now when I looked at this and I saw the the actual specs of this, I'm thinking all right I'm content created. I need this thing to be able to run room, photoshop and so on so forth to be able to get my creative projects done. But I saw chip speed, and I saw the Ram thinking not so much. I'M NOT GONNA be running premiere pro on here doing some four K. video editing, but I could possibly process some photos on here without a problem, and I could grant the device did try to get a little bit warm as I work through some large photoshop files, but it was able to take care of it and get all of those tests done with the with it without it being a big problem. Forest the actual. heat dissipation on here up will heat up if you put a lot of lot of. Compute power into it with your tasks such as again a large photoshop foul, but acer thought about that and said you know what we're going to give you this awesome three sixty hinge. Just in case she wanted not only use it as a tablet device, but if you take this this screen and push it all the way back a little bit more, it creates a little bit of lift up under the laptop, allowing the fans to really really grab a hold of some extra air in pulled in clean air and dissipate all of that extra. I thought that was a nice touch is not terribly intrusive and big when it tilts up like that every now, and then it could be a little bit weird looking at the screen, being tilted so far away, but again. That's just something you have to consider. If you're going to be doing a lot of heavy lifting with the laptop light dis. This laptop is designed more so for. For that on the go business person going through and checking out budgets, spreadsheets and things like that because it's it's perfect for that is got enough power for such a thing but again if you also want to just handle content creation, handle content consumption. It's highly capable of doing a stat. Let's talk a little bit about the inputs and outputs on this thing you have. I love this. They have to to count them to thunderbolt three ports on your USB see that actually four functional, so if you want to power thunderbolt display with this with this laptop you you can, if you want to charge up your smartphone with it, you can, and it also has the typical hdmi in USB, three point. Oh ports on here as well just in case you want to attach some Dongo's and things like that also enjoy. Enjoy the fact that it has a micro St card reader on here because again, thinking on the photographer side of things I have st cards in my cameras, and to sometimes just dump them in here and do some editing directly on a laptop instead of going over to my big workstation here in the studio I found that to be quite convenient because a lot of times. These laptops these days do not come with SD card readers. I wish this was more of the norm giving my SD card reader. Bet Okay Acer thank you for taking note in doing so on this particular device.

"All right now my actual final question is is is there? John Strategy left for Bernie Sanders. He immediately turned to kind of a unification towards showing Obama and his ads. Start to try to be feel instead of trying to destroy the party which had been kind of the message of his campaign towards more a you know. I'm all I'm part of the party. I'm well he's got kind of one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake because when he came he's been saying teaching my son to drive. He wants to do that. It's so terrifying that car but it's not good because you're also saying signal. The car that leads to go forward so what you know. He is still running against the establishment. He still arguing that everything from the corporate media to the kind of entrenched Washington Democrats lobbyists are against him And so he's pushing away a lot of the The elites in the party And then on the other hand is you say he's talking. He's talking about things that The Obama stuff in his ads is an attempt. Really to get some of those suburban voters. He's had difficulty with trying to make himself seem a little bit more Palatable but the but it's at odds with his brand which is damn and I am who I am. And that's why you like me so and I think he's I mean he's going after Biden quite hard On trade on Iraq on on Social Security and Medicare and I think that will Does devolve I think into something quite much vinegary? And then we're going to get into a question of how ugly will it get and will there be permanent damage You Know Hillary Clinton's people are still quite sore that that Sanders waited all the way till July. And so whoever the loser is on this you know they can make it They can make it pretty bloody John I need. I need breaking news. Update DID IT DID. It did it. Did it did wall? We were just taping the segment. Warren dropped out reaction. Emily Basilan you know. Now I do feel sad. We are not going to have in all likelihood of female president in twenty twenty and I guess sort of already thought that but but now it feels real and that part really does make me said. Do you think it says anything about the our politics and its ability to handle the The detailed plans of the country was talking about you. Think about governor Inslee. Who ran on pure of global warming platform? He'd got nowhere. Does this say anything larger about the ability to talk about Policy in detail. And whether that really gets you anything in a in a campaign right I think. I think it's chief values as a is signaling and the idea is not that people actually want to hear what you have to say about policy. It's like Oh wow. This is the person who's capable. But then she did get hung up on the problem when she went to detailed around. Medicare for all it really put shackles on her and It was a mixed blessing. I think the the the plan. This didn't matter as long as no one was reading. The details of the plan just signaled this is a really capable person to that would be a lot of momentum last spring right. I mean a lot of press coverage a big push. There was a moment where she was soaring in the polls and then I think it wasn't enough. And maybe that's because of her position on Medicare for all. Maybe it's these other less tangible factors. We are talking about or just the fact that Sanders supporters proved to be really really loyal to him. I'm not sure but it does signal that like. The plan is not cheap thing. Let me ask you that you both this question. Which is if you are Elizabeth Warren. And or someone who has her interests in mind. What is the route that maximizes your ability to influence the things you care about? Do you go with Bernie Sanders. Who cared about the same things his whole life but who also has a lot of his own ideas about that kind of thing might if he gets elected would would be. Maybe a competition with him to get those things done. Although might work hand in hand and go forward with that or sign up with Joe Biden. Who wouldn't mind your support right now for the promise of position acts in the key in the Administration you'd have to fight against a kind of more moderate slower Rupa people but presumably. You're in a position right now. To ask for something you might be able to lock in a position that we give you influence. What are you guys? WanNa do ladder heart. Yeah the second by obviously which is head. I'm not even sure that's her head. I don't I'm not sure. If she made her heart might be with Biden too. I don't think I don't know I don't think arts with buying at all but I do think when I imagine a Biden administration it would be much better for progressives if Elizabeth. Warren had a powerful position in it. I'm not so sure that we couldn't have a woman president twenty one because I think there's a non zero possibility that one of these candidates dies I'm just saying like trump one of the Democrats and the the woman running. Wait make the presidency. Just saying you are with the usual plots reliable prediction. Let's see slate. Plus you get bone segments on the GATT vest and other slate. Podcasts YOU GO TO SLEEP DOT com slash gap has plus to become a member today. And today we're GonNa talk about pandemic fiction pandemic fiction that we like Representations of pandemics in the culture speaking Appendix Cova Nineteen. The Corona virus threatens to be a global disruption. Unlike anything the world has seen in our lifetime I think supply chains have been disoriented. The world economy is grinding. Slow gatherings across the world or stopping travel is slowing down more than three hundred million kids out of school around the world. The pandemic is spread across continents now. Clear with I think more than ten deaths ten deaths when I wrote this that the disease has a strong foothold in United States and is spreading quietly and probably inexorably through our country so emily. We have talked about containment. That seemed to be. The strategy of the United States was pursuing prevent. The disease from getting here make much more slowly. Get here only in a controlled fashion. Stop anyone who seems to be. Showing signs of it from getting in the country contain them. Quarantine them That containment no longer seems possible. So what does that mean for us? It means that we really should have had a plan. B. and we should have been thinking about the alternative strategy of mitigation which means testing and treatment and quarantine. We should have been thinking about that all along. I hadn't really read very much corona virus coverage for about a week. I'm not someone who I was. I resist long tail risk. I'm sort of like president trump in that way. I would prefer that it. All just be minimized but that seems like a huge mistake in this case and it just seems like the combination of the president's resistance to talking about not even worst case scenarios just like poor scenarios combined with the fumbling at the CDC where they botched the original testing kits and send them out and had very narrow criteria for. Who tested like now? We are really at much greater risk than we might have been and I couldn't help connect this to a piece that George Packer wrote in the Atlantic that went online this week about the kind of crumbling of the bureaucracy and this feeling that it's taken awhile for trump to really destroy parts of the bureaucracy. Packer was writing about the Justice Department. And the State Department but I feel like it's proven to be true about health and Human Services and maybe the CDC as well where you see instead of a sort of science fact based what's best for the country response you see people trying to placate trump. Who wanted it all to go away? And you see all this incredible infighting in a way. That has made the government's response much less effective. And I find that really alarming and upsetting but Michael Lewis wrote a whole book about this called the fifth risk which is all about the the growing incapacity in government for project management because when things get politicized and when incompetent people are running things and when science and sort of logic and analytical reasoning or thrown out the window all those things lost and you know David when we have presidential campaigns we only care about the guy at the top but it turns out being president means you run an organization and we never talk about that kind of stuff. Emily available June night retailers. Near you You know the thing about Michael's Michael's book which has does exactly what you say David. And and what what what has been the case in the trump administration so far when we've talked about talked about systems breaking down or norms breaking down the the evidence or oftentimes it's theoretical With the exception of what happened at the border with separate family separation Although that in that case family separation was that was an acute policy choice. Made in the moment. What's different about this is it is. It's it's a long term thinking that is required in administration about what are the biggest most important things that can ruin my life when I interviewed Condie Rice for the book She said what you should ask. Every candidate is what surprising thing is going to hit you. And what are you going to do about it? Because that's what being president is. And if you don't think about that beforehand you have this kind of situation so what happened here is you had not only. I mean before you ever get to the actual Wayne which the administration responded to this specific. Challenge the National Security Council's Pan flu group. Where their plan for handling Pandemics was Was SHRUNK WAS. The staffing was cut and that group was set up basically in the wake of Ebola to try to deal with these kinds of global issues which basically become a national security threat. And at least have somebody ready there for this kind of thing when it happens to start all the kind of coordinating that you need to do. Between all the different very weird way to say coordinating across all the different kinds of agencies. So you have so. You're weak the structural stuff. You're supposed to take care of. When nothing bad is happening is weak. And then when the when it when it goes bad this over politicization of the response and the constant weakening of public trust in the president which is another one of those long term. Erosions that now has a problem and the Dow and what happens now is. This isn't just about some norm. That's been transgressed this is about. You know human lives and safety and the economy as well. I mean there are real things that can be counted for the decisions that were made. I want to say that I do think that the trump administration has has handled this terribly and and all the criticism there is being heaped on them for both structural bad response and the the particulars of the the bad response in the lies and the misleading all well-deserved. There's a whole other piece of this. Which is that. We have a health system which seems maximally designed to not deal with this and a strong good way so that all society people don't have sick leave to they keep showing up at work even though they don't feel well they're afraid to use their benefits because they have such high deductibles they show up at to get tested for something discover their negative for this but walked out with gigantic bill. They're not GONNA WANNA go get tested where it's the in a non centralized systems of the tests don't get distributed so that information doesn't get shared very well. I mean there's the maximum way that this could go wrong. It's going to go wrong. I mean I think it's in contrast where you look at countries that have highly nationalized top-down health systems are probably. GonNa Handle this outbreak. A lot better now. They may be other things they don't handle as well but but I think there's a reason why why we should be particularly scared in the US. It's IT'S A. It's a health system that is that doesn't have the resilience and the and the the capacity to deal with this and in fact scarce. Most people are scared to be in it. They don't WanNa be in it because it costs them so much money totally that compounds. All the weaknesses John was talking about and then on top. You have trump. You know Wednesday night going on Hannity saying that. He has a hunch that the death rate is far lower than the World Health Organization. Believe suggesting it's okay for people to with Corona virus to go to work. He like mix it up with the flu at one point. I mean come on like this is a real thing that is going to kill people and it doesn't matter whether trump turns out to be right or wrong about the lower death rate. The point is like rate now. You go with caution you go with the scientists staying with Emily Sinclair moment. David your point is exactly right. And there's a downside to thinking so much of this as a result of DONALD TRUMP. Because then what you end up doing when you assess what went wrong he'd just say oh it's CD asynchronous of the trump administration and there are systemic issues. An and if you want to self interest region reason for universal health coverage it's that if other people are in the health system in our habituated to seeing their doctor as a part of some kind of universal healthcare. It's easier for them when they feel symptoms to go through whatever. Their channel is to health care which therefore presumably mitigate some of the risk whereas. If you've got twenty seven million people that haven't gone that haven't had health insurance for a year. You've got a system. That can't very quickly manage these kinds of problems but to to Do your point emily. You know when we we have a hurricane coming. We've become used to seeing the president sitting in a room getting briefing. He's wearing a you know. A rain slicker with the presidential seal on it and the idea there is. He's getting a bunch of new information and that all information is going to help him make decisions or at the very least turn him into the best public administration officer Public Information Officer. In this case you have the president who has been briefed presumably saying three or four things that are not just factually bonkers compared to the having. I mean just if you're a regular person but also having talked this week to health experts. They're just totally wrong. And in this case it's not just wrong because the way he's wrong about tariffs and who pays for them but in this case he spreading information that is actively hurting the efforts that his entire administration and the entire world are moving in Direction A. and he is moving in directions..

I had a woman in Russia by two paintings from me that were pretty disturbing disturbing and I was kind of significant that someone in Russia bought them but and she told me a little bit of background and she said that It was because of her son that you bought two paintings and Anyway had just just having having that kind of having those kinds of things happen because the good because of the very fact that the hands resistant became such a popular Internet phenomena. Yeah you bet she was able to. You know because of that. I had a website and and met the beautiful woman that I'm married to now and G Book the website website for me and all because of all of that I had all of these. All of these connections grew from that. Well well it sounds like you're taking all of the The goodwill and and basically sucking the souls out of everyone else so you you have this wonderful exhibit come on now. Isn't that the nature of capitalism. Full Lot of everything. Why your points here? There's a lot packed into this into to this episode right now so it sounds like you do not Regret Painting Miss. No I had no regrets rush whatsoever. Good good nor should you nor should you where is it now. Where's the pain located now? In grand rapids Michigan in the perception gallery and I think came keeps it locked in a basement is out of the mand like too many people want to. She's it garlic and fixes all over. The Wall thing reeks like sage. By this point. Tim Keeps keeps it at the gallery in its own space. He gets people coming to you know wanting to see it and so he kind of takes them on. I'm to her. Oh great and he'll take it out once in a while when people ask for it. Yeah Wow or actually I think he brings them down into the basement spooky music and all that. Yeah I do it again. I have not seen the painting. Would that be like for you. We've been in the presence of my work. Are you scared news. Ninety two to nineteen seventy four. Are you saying you're terrified to see your own work again. Totally afraid will I do have an exact reproduction of it okay. The team had made Kim had made insensitive but not haunted or it as well you know. It's peripherally hunted hundred on On off Tuesday's here. That's why we that's why we're doing this on a Wednesday. Yes thank God. Yeah well I think I think Tim we're GONNA make a trip out there to grand rapids and tempt fate as we As we typically do we did discuss it but then we also said that. We don't want our plane to crash on the way home. That's why I'm walking. Yeah Yeah you don't want that. I mean just moving just moving the print from one place to the other Caused truck was in in the breakdown. You know it's kind of like Indiana Jones. And the and the Arkansas the CREPE is burning through array of the outside of the box I feel like I feel like the The mystical supernatural energy. Coming from the painting is sort Lavar wearing away because the only thing it's done so far is just a disconnected the call seven minutes so I think we're in the clear well but we don't know what's going to happen when people listen do it. That's true don't listen to this episode. If you've been that does that works against us. Sorry yeah listen to the Intel us. If something happened to you check in check in with us after. So you yourself have never experienced anything that you can directly relate to it other than The truck breaking down. Well yeah I mean the good the emails I I was constantly getting okay for querying about it was was kind of like a constant phenomena to your haunted by in Matthew Tapping on the window right embodied hands okay and And what about the other one. So you said that there was there was a one sequel. That was yeah. There's three three sequels now when we were. We already talked about which was The one for the actual prequel. Aw Transact and then The two others that were That were commissioned by the same Collector and he wanted me to do them With specifically I sequel The Han resistance at the threshold was myself at the time. So that was. I was fifty three at the time And then the third one which was a special revelation and all all three of the paintings the original and the the two sequels tasks to do with the fact that I never knew who my parents were or Whether I had siblings and in fact I did I had a sister. Why discovered While I was the painting it started painting. The third Sequel their threshold revelation. where the suddenly the doll is no longer a doll but an actual living child child? How yeah and she's holding she's holding the remnants of the doll and that and so it's the revelation that she that you know the the I actually did and she was she was alive and well and living in Massachusetts and and we met each other and it was amazing and and she I have eight? I have Eight ISA's and nephews now and You know whole whole line of folks unrelated to very cool but she was. She was put up for adoption. Just as I was right after right after being born. Wow it ran for your two years apart. And they're in Qatar too but we were two years apart. And Wow yeah so there was. That's what I mean about paying the some sometimes painting is a is a conjuring sure sure manifestation of something that did happen will happen. Yeah I love that and I think you're absolutely right when you say. Painting is a form of magic because it it has no bounds of time and space. And I think you're right. People can transform through artwork and specifically paintings and your paintings their incredible bill.

"What like you protested the war and you were arrested? Yeah Yeah it was nice to three years. I was sentenced to three years and then they suspended them and put me on probation. Jeez good Lord okay so this was passionate time. Yeah yeah definitely okay. Painting was painting was a okay Well it was I. My painting was dark and there was I was never. I was never going to get away from that. That was just part of who I was but It was like I was again. I was like the Canary in the coal mine. I was pulling in all the toxic stuff that we had in our own society. Eddie I mean there's a painter you're like that you're a barometer you can. You can feel the weather change and You know on a on an unconscious level. Oh and because of that I was feeling that darkness in in our world and pulling into my work now. Do you still have that original photo. Roy I wish no. It's it's in a landfill Mendocino. Well you're around a lot. Yeah it sounds like you have it in explicit. visit detail in your head though because you described it very eloquently. There's other photos in the album. That are up the same from the same time period so okay so you said said that you always have a lot of darkness. That's involved in your artwork and there was a lot of passion going on at the time and there was a deeper meaning to the word resist. So when you painted this. Were you intending it to be as unsettling as it turned out to be yes. Okay yes listen accomplished. Yeah yeah that was something that was you know was always there. Everything is painted. I I was influenced by what I was influenced a lot by what I read at the time. Too and one of the things I was reading at the time was You know this may be laughable now but Don Juan Carlos Casinos the teachings of Don Juan and this is his answer anthropology. The I think it was his anthropology doctorate paper at Ucla and he wrote about the Indian don warn and `bout his way of knowledge and his way of knowledge involved using things like Detroit and Suicide and that kind of thing and the ideas that Don Juan talks about and talked about That the unknown and the power of life and death is something that was so spreads them always instantaneously around us at all times. Carlos is you know kind of bumbling character from from Ucla from civilized from what he perceived his zone perception of civilized world is suddenly plunged into this world supernatural beliefs and powerful powerful loosener jets and I experienced that yeah. Spencer experienced it and when it happened for me it was uh opening is the least of it. All right. Yeah tell us you know. It was profoundly changing because it it pulls you right down into the earth and pushes you back out again through some plant somewhere. Oh I love animals where you're going with this. This is great. Where'd you go to the mall? Ah We regret nothing the mojave or Joshua tree or would you go experience. This actually mojave was one of them but I lived in the desert for a while to lived outside of a little town. Called the SPURIA alley yeah okay. Roaches in the Apple Valley area. Sorry I think is the bigger region. Anyway it's high desert and In more ways than one yeah right. Exactly Act One but Yeah the experiences. I had their listen when I was twenty Really kind of insulin salute everything visually for me for many years and still and so that you were quoted as saying the hands in the painting where all of the possibilities what. What are the possibilities smell? The possibilities are are well. It's it's because the hands have more than one meaning I mean the hands are both As was intended in in Ruins Tom rose. The possibilities of who my family might have been for who they were so they were the ghosts of those possibilities like siblings. I mean the Donald represented in a sense my missing sibling. And we we can talk about that too. Because that ends up in the sequel teaming thinks that I did that another resent story evolves with those paintings but anyway in that original in the original has resistance The hands also represented the conflict in myself between what I can create and what I can imagine in how long I can take off. And how much do I do. I really have over my own and in brush. Do you apply that method of thinking and creating creating to everything that you paint. Yeah Yeah I do. I mean it's like it's kind of a lucid dream. Yeah so painting is so so different from I mean I gave up painting for ten years when I when I worked at Lucas and was doing a digital feature film stuff on because because the computer and digital digital animation and three D. modeling. And all of that kind of thing is I'm I'm telling you it is like getting hooked on heroin. I mean it is so powerful you can create anything anything you can imagine and you can put it in a realistic setting so convincing. That you can't tell it from the real and so you know that was so compelling telling me that I decide my brushes and paints for ten years because I didn't have space in my head to be able to do both and it's because it's I simply as the act of having a mouse in my hand and looking at the screen I disconnected for money. I was no longer looking at it right now looking at the screen and and my hand is over to the side here moving and making you know doing the work on the screen but it's not connected anymore so different from folding brushing your hand I mean we're now suddenly a Beta state of mind instead of an also state of mind minded. You're when you're working in the computer you're almost in a an unconscious state because of that disconnection between hand and I damn yeah. I don't think I'm going to use the mouse on my computer. The same way again. INNOCENT MOUSE is naturally the brand new now okay. So there's a whole history and a legend with this painting can you. Can you start telling us about where it went after you painted it. And where the legend I guess guests started. Well that yeah that's interesting that was The painting were the last time I physically saw. The painting was At the Gallery Charles. Fine Art Galleries At the night of my show which was in December of nineteen seventy four. So he had a one man show for me so the gallery was filled with my work kid kid. By that point he had collected fifty four about fifty four canvases and so he had a You know he had the paintings and the hands was hanging. You know Kind of a side wall off the main area the gallery and I was I was there with I My first wife and she and walking around the gallery and looking into looking at the people looking at the work and and I noticed This guy standing in front of the painting and I recognized him immediately as an actor Turkey Iraq and it was what's his name. I I said Charlie John John Marley and I you know I recognize him from God the Godfather movie and I just want to interject here. You're John Marlee played the character in the godfather movie. The Hollywood mogul producer who up the horse's head in his bed which just adds back and and I learned later that he was a work in. I don't remember the name of the movie but he was working on one of those Roger Gorman type or movies at the time that he was looking more screening the though he Anyway I saw him looking at it and then we were. You Walk. Walked up the street to go look at another gallery. Where an old old friend of Mine Leon Salter was a relative of my stepfather and it was an amazing painter Very plastic Kind of German expressionist sionist stuff and so we went to the gallery to look at his work and And then I think I think about a week later I was in contact with with bind and garden in discovering that the only painting that had sold them the show was that one in so I assumed that have been purchased by Marley. Okay so and that was it. That was the last time I ever saw the painting and then at In in two thousand one I was contacted by Cubans Smith's who Well anyway so I get an email from I'm I'm in and Need Washington working working at scientific Which is a company that created the game Missed.

The second season was about other art crimes and Sort of significant moments in art culture and this season we're gearing more towards a little bit of the A little bit of the the`real supernatural aspect and you have this painting that Tim referenced called the the hands resist him. This is an incredible painting. This has an incredible story. Yes yes can you start with why you painted it and and the story of how it was painted well at the time I was living in well. Actually the story goes before I painted it It goes to going down to l'ancienne again Beverly Hills and walking into a gallery there with my portfolio in showing my portfolio the gallery manager and then some months later in my while painting in quonset hut up in Newbury Park and I mean corpse it it looks like half a can of peaches right on his side was willing and creating and and he comes driving up in his Mercedes uh-huh and jumps out of the car and comes up into the into the Qantas hot any buys every with the exception of maybe a couple of paintings he buys everything I have and then any signs up for a two year contract to paint for him and rip that contract. I was then Actually some other circumstances debut the opportunity to buy a house out in Ohio and Moved out there with my first wife and this place was quite Dark and had a lot of well goats. I mean the whole Canyon was filled with ancient fossil beds and and eight hundred year old oak trees and and the house was old stage. Stop between Santa Barbara and Ventura before there was a coastal road at all and so it had all of these memories and spirits. Whatever were there and as a painter I'm sort of like a canary in a coal mine? I mean I. I'm sensitive to what's going on around me in the you know in the presence of things in nature in in whatever and we would pick up this and and it would influence that I was painting. Meaning we're search. It's it's happening already. The weird things are happening. We another call came through and I panicked and hit the wrong button and hung up on us well. I guess we could keep my responses to yesterday. Now this was going great. This is going great. Sorry about that strange. That's that's that's never happened before. I usually know what button to hit when that happens but I lost my mind for a second. Well it's because it's all haunted rights. Yeah I think it's possession. Well there's a there's a you know there's like there's like a vortex over this island and Your your Connections to me is tenuous at best here really now. So you're ordering everything on gaining AH also causes a disturbance in the quantum entangled ruled in my God this. I love this going already Phil de Yeah so wait a second. So can you tell us where you're you're speaking to us now from. Yes Shawn Island. Actually actually to be accurate. It's Maury Maury island realities impute. Yes in puget sound. So it's all You know it's right near it's actually kind of between Tacoma and Seattle. Okay all right. It sounds like a beautiful place especially this time of year ear. Oh Yeah it is and you go there for inspiration or that's where we live. More we live. We live here. We we live on a beautiful tree. Dacre forest meadow piece of property coal. We'll we'll be there next week. Okay the camera operating on the ferry doctor. You know okay beautiful perfect so do you agree with proper. Welcome appreciate it so before the Before the the spirits interrupted our conversation. You were talking about how you were in a place where there was a lot of. I guess we could say supernatural baggage that you are being affected by. Yeah you continue on with that. That's super interesting well. Ohio itself is Known for its. I don't know what spiritual energy I guess is what you'd call it okay. There's the there's an an really old institution institution they're called the FIA Sokoll society and Mariah Carey there were there. Were only four copies of this book and it was conly Paul's Secret teachings of all ages and I had a copy of this book. Not I'm not one of the originals of course but I had Reprint of it. It was probably reprinted in the late sixties. And that was that was something I always had around. And and that and Throws Dictionary of symbols. He was a Spanish offer Do some intrusive work on and symbolic and so forth MHM and I had books texts like this around so between those books. And my I also did a lot of Kerov love Between all those kinds of activities these kind of metaphysical things and I was involved in. Eighteen was a Rosa Rozov form of magic. Because it was it was conjuring and it was Clinton not only conjuring but it was also creating creating meals Luger of space and time because if you look at my paintings most of my paintings are so filled with motion and more so than the hands. Resist Him Harry has resisted is actually pretty mild compared to what I paint. Okay it's it's It's a still frame in a moment in time and if you in other words if you if you become involved in it as a fewer you will begin to see what's coming next or you will imagine what's coming next or regain previously previously. I so this is what I'm trying to do in my painting and I don't necessarily always consciously think about it when I'm painting but what I want. I want the review or to fill in the spaces. I want you engaged in what you're looking at and my painting whole world's food you in and then create the rest of the story. That sounds really cool. Have you had any formal training or is this all self taught this. This is all off. You know I wouldn't say off the top of my head necessarily but Marin side but I mean I had some. I had two years years of college and and Had A you know an associate degree and in those two years. I majored in art. So I took you know basic painting courses sources and so forth so I understood principles of Holler and color Syria and that kind of thing and also our history took our history quences but beyond that no I I had no art school training I was. I couldn't afford it for one thing. Well if your goal is to allow the viewer you were to fill in the spaces and You know enjoy looking at your your work. I think you've really struck struck a chord here bill because The hands resist him is Incredibly disturbing you painted something you painted something back in Nineteen Nineteen seventy-two which is frequently called the most haunted painting in the world. Where does the story of this start for you? Roll the story the story of of my contact with this phenomenon of the painting. Yeah how did you have the painting itself. Where where did that come from because you obviously conjured evil just basic idea for the painting came from the an old photo of myself Standing in front of my grandmother's apartment in Chicago When I was five years old and scanning standing there with a neighbor girl little girl and that was it that was it was a you? Know an old black and white photograph but had stated and and I mean all decided to plead old photo my five year old self and the neighbor girl poised on the threshold to the apartment. SMUDGED and Brown with age was pinned to the canvas frame propped on the easel. Ready for paint studio located above the high water has been the stage stop between Ventura sure and Santa Barbara before the coast highways surrounded by ancient oaks rooster owls and bats my imagination conceived and my brushes delivered. No so I had this old photo from the family album and that was the initial inspiration. Well actually the other part of the inspiration because the title came from Poem That my wife had written at the time and The title of the poem. The hands resistant. Now she's referring referring to the CON conflict within me as an only child and not knowing who my parents were because I was adopted so she sees that as a connection between the real world of your of your tackles self with your hands and the world of the that is in your head you know and the connection between the head and hands you make that connection and active than allies it right and it was when you know because that was already in this dark place You know and this was. This was nineteen seventy two so there was a lot going on in world at the time looking at Phnom War and our bad involved. I mean I was a young man. I was eligible for the draft and all of that so there was a lot going coming on that brought darkness into not only my own life but lives around me. Hans resist him resistance was something else. No yeah no I mean resistance was real right and do you still have that. Don't react. I was pretty active. Actually in in that in and ended ended ended up serving some Federal probation.

They had to take that Shit. Fuck yards right. I'm taping. It should have been three seconds. I hate it from the side. Yeah I was seeing that Even with the corona virus now there was a flight that was coming in last week Wednesday. Remember it was. Lax or something in the states on the west coast and there was like a big debate on whether they should quarantine the plane. 'cause it was coming from like that Wuhan area that people were saying a lot of the first you know the first The initial people who have gotten sick were coming from that area so they do. I don't know I didn't see enough pay so it might be the ran up. The House with Lysol can sue Brian. I just up in place but I wonder if we have contingency plans for these things.

And see the baby's would have these brains effects that were like Jeez yeah. It was devastating. We kept seeing the news reports and then it made you wonder like I think you were just saying like is it that things have gotten worse or is it just that we have access to social media. So we're seeing more of it in retirement and just feels more daunting not scary just from like the pictures being shared you know especially with the Zico. The moms Shane maybes deformities was like pretty intense trying to figure out. How can we be of service? Zico sound like it hurt to Zico. Oh sounds painful sharp.

TV Pro. They also released a nvidia shield. TV The twenty nineteen edition of this is actually fifty dollars less than the pro. This is an and a little bit smaller a little bit more limited so this cost a hundred and forty nine dollars and ninety nine cents and I just got this couple of days ago. I've been using it for a couple of days just to kind of watch some content on on android TV and everything and detested out. I have the original invidia shield. TV At home And So far this is this is actually really compelling little piece of gear. It's it's got the same and video Tigra one x plus inside as has As the pro model so from processor perspective. It's the same. It's got two gigs of Ram. Instead of the three gigs in the pro it's got eight eight gigs of storage storage instead of the sixteen gigs of storage on the pro Another difference of course is the the foreign factors obviously really different right like it's the cylindrical. Approach approach I like it though. I mean when you look at when you look at the diagram of how it can go. It's meant to be like a pass through. Yes that's exactly what which is really interesting. Thank right yeah. Yeah so power down here. There's your Ethernet port To to wire into the Internet flip it over on the other side. And you've got your HDMI port that's like a little like reset slash remote finder button Underneath the issue my port is a single micro SD card slot. So basically the I O that you get here is Microsoft if you want to add storage or whatever there is no USB. The PRO has two full size USB. Three Point Oh ports. It's this does not. This has a single Mike Rusty card slot so that might limit you It might also be exactly what you need like. Maybe that's just all you need you know And Nine Pie. Same as the pro.

Then plus does support Dobie outmost dolby digital plus surround Soun- it does also have the a enhanced video upscaling a two four K.. From from seven twenty P and ten eighty p. Although I've noticed in my playing around with that feature as Interesting as it is. There's a requirement on frames per second. I think is thirty. He frames per second if your content doesn't have thirty frames per second it won't activate that mode so that's a little a little specific so you kind of have to know that you're feeding the right exactly the right kind of content in order to Benefit from the neural networks. That are upscaling in real time But it is neat and And very effective when it's when it's working properly does include the same Revised remote that triangular remote that stands up pretty nicely and has the same layout. It's a really good upgrade from the remote on the previous version of promotional TV. Yeah yeah I I like it. So I'd say the downsides of this so what do you not get if you're getting the regular and not the pro version this will not for this will not play okay HDR content from Youtube. So it's not gonNA play it in hd are anyways so that's something to keep in mind. It's missing the VP nine profile. From what I understand Dan. That's not going to be included So you know. I didn't do any reading to see if that's missing from the pros. Well but I know it is here. It also oh can't be used as a plex server and that's going to end by the way plexus the sponsor of the network full disclosure but A lot of people get the invidia shield. TV because they want to use it as a plex server or part of their plex media. Because it doesn't have that I owe it's not capable of that so if you WANNA use an invidia shield. TV As a plex server you have to get the pro version not this one so keep that in mind and also and this is kind of a bummer. It can only run thirty two bit APPS so it's is not capable of running sixty four bit APPs which is kind of becoming a standard on android so I think it's kind of strange that they left Outta here especially considering the pro can and they're both both using the same processor. It doesn't make much sense to me why they would place that limitation on it if you're using an invidia shield. TV for emulation. This could crop up for. It's great emulation device the original one and the pro. That just came out but A lot there are a decent amount of emulators. Now that are sixty four. Bit emulators like the Dolphin also emulator for example which is a Gamecube emulator. And if you WANNA run that you're GONNA you're not gonna be able to do that on this version Only thirty two bit APPs it can be run at this time so some limitations needs help you said even possible house. What possible thirty to bid the only APPs because the sea periods the same android works the same sixty sixty forbids? I mean. How is that possible? It's a really great question when I was really baffled to find that To find that out it's been reported in multiple places and you know I am to be honest like I got this. He's just a couple of days ago. I haven't been able to test it myself so I'm going on off of what I've read in like an nvidia support forum. That measure like is that like the power management issue. Maybe I have no idea. It really doesn't make much sense to me. I don't know yeah yeah I agree it was. It was kind of boggling. Two meals like wait a minute. Why that makes okay? Yeah expensive to make any sense because the CPU Yeah city teaching programs on their side. Maybe I mean this was from Nvidia support Article On the INVIDIA site. I don't have a link to you right now to take a look for that but but yeah No I would love for someone to to Eric. Reddit reddit thread. That says to anyone is confused about this seems to be running thirty two bit only Um Cursing in here. So I'M NOT GONNA share a confirmation so His a shield threat. I think it's the same thing that you found Jason the forum On NVIDIA DOT COM says. Yeah that that Thirty two bit. Yeah so to. I'd say why though that's so weird. Yeah Yeah I yeah and like a part of me wants to believe that at some point there'll be an update or maybe it's an oversight or whatever the things Out For a enough time. Now that I feel like in video would have can happen. I love about read the comments. They're like saying saying it's like maybe it's because of the ram or Blah Blah Blah and you know and and you know and and you know the the lack adobe vision whatever but then another communist because the new remote is a huge improvement though Let's see accuse supports that instruction tank. I mean do like a book somehow. I hope it's a bug because then it could be fixed and then it could could uh uh could support the sixty four bit APPs like should I completely agree Yeah I'm baffled to an happy Yubari because I didn't believe in it I But anyway so that's the invidia shield. TV IF YOU WANNA save fifty bucks off the pro you can get this. Maybe this is enough to keep in mind those asterisks and That might be worth an extra fifty bucks. I think you just get more expandability. Get more power or you know capability obviously sixty four bit versus thirty two that could That could come around and Bite Ya With this model versus the more expensive one. No matter what it's money well spent. If you get the pro this is this is probably a pretty. You know pretty good device as well in in use for a lot of people but it definitely has some limitations so worth considering and neat little form factor I like the form factor. I think that's really interesting. I he died pastor idea. Just put it behind.
"hands" Discussed on Hands-On Tech
"Google really likes to release. Its things early meaning. Google doesn't mind letting some of its users in on a product or hardware it's releasing before it's perhaps all cooked in the tech world. This is absolutely nothing new. The stadium founders edition definitely falls into that category and that's not necessarily summarily a bad thing. It's just important to note that going in so what is stadium. Well stadium is what Google game console would-be but without the actual console stadium is totally cloud based meaning. It leans on Google's cloud servers to run and store the Games in its library. Everything is streamed from those servers to players device and that device could be a TV with the chrome cast ultra that's capable of four K.. Streaming it could also be chromebook own book or a laptop running the chrome browser. It could even be a Google Pixel phone. It makes a lot of promises and it's quite intriguing. Actually actually no costly console purchase needed just to sixty nine dollar controller coupled with a nine dollars ninety nine cents monthly subscription for four K to get at the stadium service you can get ten. Eighty P for free and with that players can get triple eight games stream to their devices in full four K.. Resolution at its peak with the support for HD are sixty frames per second and five point one surround sound even better because the games are running on Google servers in the cloud. It's like you're playing. The beefy EST gaming computer with the highest quality rendering settings on and updates will be done automatically behind the scene so many of the annoying knowing asterisks associated with PC gaming is kind of removed from the equation for the player. Just fire up the APP sync up the Stadia Controller that I have right here in play Klay top Tier Games but is this the future of gaming. Let's take a look at the stadium founders edition. This is what you get in the founders edition this whole package right here cost about while one hundred thirty dollars preordered back in June. It includes the controller that you have here which I'm GonNa talk about in a second And it also has this chrome cast ultra. This is the chrome cast that streams four K.. Resolution HDMI port. And then finally this is the power for the chrome cast ultra and important to note. It does have the wired Ethernet option. So you don't have to go fully wireless with the Crown Cast Ultra. You can wire it and you're ah you're probably just going to get better stability out of your streaming With stadium when you do that the controller I will say like it's got a really nice design. It feels really good in in the hands of the buttons. Feel Nice Everything the lay out. It's all laid out really nicely. You've got your pretty standard you know controller's analog and and digital controllers as well as the four button layout Four shoulder buttons up here but then you have kind of exclusive to the Stadia Layout you had had this options button. which are the three dots? Got The menu button right here. This is a capture button for when you want to capture things and in this early preview. That's not a feature. Yeah that's live neither is this. This is the assistant to Google Assistant Button And that's not a live during this early previews well. You can kind of see as I'm moving the controller color around they're just like little scratches throughout. We're pretty We're pretty delicate with this controller. Yet it seems to pick up marks pretty easily. Some some of these marks actually came from this. This is a smartphone mount you can snap onto the top. This was included in the box. But I don't believe that this is actually actually a included in the official founders edition but in snapping at to the the controller and off. It was already leaving some marks and stuff so if you're OCD that may bother you over time But overall I mean the controller. I really liked the feel of it. Other features that you'll find here on the bottom of three point five millimeter. Headphone Jack for plugging in headphones also has a little microphone again. This is another feature that is not active during the this early preview But you can ha- you use that microphone Talk inside of games and stuff like that and then up on the top just a USB see see charging port We'll say one thing I really like about this controller. Aside from the air comic feel and and how comfortable it is enhanced it has the haptic Kind kind of rumble effect happening in each of these arms and I felt like it's a pretty strong haptic kick to it so really like it. Another unique feature of this controller or is that it connects to the Internet via Wi fi directly. Okay so this isn't like Bluetooth to the crown cast. This is actually reaching out via Wi fi lie to the internet And they do that to cut down even further on latency so that does improve things. Someone for this preview that that I did the stadium controller actually operates wireless mode only when it's connected to the crown cast ultra in order to test with the The Pixel Book and the Pixel Excel which we'll talk about it in a second. It had to be wired. So I had to plug from the SPEC- poured directly into those devices. Google does say that wireless support for all of these platforms is coming early twenty twenty. Now's for third party controllers Stadia does support third party controllers like this one the dual shock four four controller that you might have hanging around although it's mixed support right now for different platforms. TV It's not gonNA work although it will work with Google chrome and some of the Pixel phone whether it's wired or via Bluetooth so the big concern among Gamers is whether a fully cloud based top Tier Council can go toe to toe with the expensive consoles that were used used to buying and plugging directly into our home theater systems. How does the Internet affect the gaming experience when it's all streaming from the cloud? Well I fired up stadium. Stadia on my pixelbook wirelessly getting twenty two megabits per second down ninety megabits per second up and I had some. Let's say serious stuttering issues. I was was playing mortal Kombat eleven. It's a fast paced button Masher and I could keep up even when the video stopped and started but only because I was just pressing buttons like a Madman There's no way that I'd be really happy if this was my everyday experience on my pixel xl. I enjoyed. I would say a pretty seamless experience. Of course I I was getting one hundred nine megabits per second down and one hundred sixty nine megabits per second up but everything felt really smooth. I was really enjoying this. Actually the phone mound Detaches the phone to the top of the controller and. I'm not so sure this phone. Mount is included in the founders edition it was outside of the founders addition edition box but it was in the box Google sent over. And it's a nice edition so maybe look out for that but the forced portrait mode that you see in the stadium stadia APP when you're selecting games that's weird definitely not ideal and finally on the included chrome cast ultra which was a wired connection pulling ninety megabits per second down and ten megabits per second up. Things looked crystal clear on our big four K.. Samsung display most of the time when four K.. was locked in everything was beautiful and impressive. But you just never knew when suddenly out of the blue everything would just down. Res- No one wants to lose a tournament. Due to some random network worked fluctuation and that's the reality cloud based streaming game content. I suppose another factor that could make or break. Stadia is latency and in my time playing these games. I've noticed little personally. In the way of latency that negatively affected my own game play Anthony Producer of hands on tech did some tests and number crunching running shadow the tomb raider on a PS four pro. And then also on the stadia to compare the latency between the two the PS four pro averaged one hundred twenty three milliseconds stadia average. Two hundred thirty nine milliseconds almost exactly two times. The amount of latency thing is I couldn't really notice a negative effect on my game play experience but I don't play competitively not saying there isn't a difference. I'm just saying the latency worked for me but twice. The latency is worrisome. Worrisome on paper so your mileage may vary okay so the jury is totally still out for me. I'm down with the promise of stadia leading Google handle the heavy be lifting and just showing up with a dumb browser or phone along with the stadia controller is pretty sweet from convenience standpoint but the big challenge for Google is making the experience seamless. Enough will gamers forgive stadia when it begins to stutter or throughout the course of a session video quality waffles sporadically between full four K.. Resolution Lucien and any number of inferior resolutions at random. I've had to remind myself. This is early the stadium founders. Edition is only shipping out to people who preordered months months ago to be in on the ground floor of something very new and different. The rest of the public should get access to this stuff early next year. And when that happens Google Google plans to have a number of features that were disabled for this early preview active and ready for the masses. But we'll gamers forgive and forget these early issues by the time time it's out for everyone something tells me that's asking a lot. I'm Jason.
