Teach orange the lives of every one of us who whose work all play involved with computers. Jack copeland founder of the alan turing online archive. An eccentric englishman. Tragic figure and one of the top scientific brains of all time because he influenced so many different areas. According to the science journal nature. The scope of cheering is a chievements is extraordinary. Mathematicians will honor the man who cracked david hilbert decision problem and historians will remember him. As the man who broke.

"Question with all the popularity around snowflake how do you compete with a different solution. We actually compete really well. Against snowflake and i think there's three areas where click asus really outstanding. The first speed and by speed i mean the ability to answer a generic query in a second or less and be able to maintain that level of performance regardless of the amount of data so just simply by adding adding resources we can actually get response times down to twenty milliseconds. This is something. Snowflake just doesn't do consistent way. The second thing is very portable so if you need to run some other than the cloud we have the answer for example. We can run in kuban. Eddie's which gives us means that we can run across a wide range of environments. A third thing is accessibility. And i think in a way that this is the biggest difference because since the software is open source as a developer i can install click software in sixty seconds. It's just by running a single doctor. Command or running to commands on lenox so that ability to put this into the hands of developers worldwide is a really fundamental distinction between a database like click house and an existing proprietary database like snowflake. Let's go through some of the semantics of click house. Take me through a right and a read to click house. Sure so writing is pretty simple. You do sequel inserts. But it's a little bit different from doing an insert into my seek laura post grass or or another row store. We tend to insert relatively large blocks of data. And we do it in one of three ways we can just have files just blasted up through client software. Say fifty thousand rose. At a time we can read from s. three compatible storage and we can also read directly off kafka cues for large systems. I would say at least fifty percent of them are using cough. Cut to supply data every time. One of these blocks of data hits klaus. What we do is create. What's called a part where we sort the data we organize it into columns and right another thing. That's really important in click house is it has the ability to do materialized views which are reduced or reorganized forms of data and the materialized. Views are mmediately every time one of these blocks hits so that process means that as you ingest the data for example from kafka the as each block hits it becomes immediate first of all immediately horrible. Moreover if you're competing aggregates from it those are also media quotable. So that's the insert process. The select process is quite straightforward. You can setup click casino variety of ways but for large systems. The most common organization is to be sharded. In other words the system that the data broken up into destroy pieces and replicated so each of those pieces has multiple copies and for reads. What you'll do you'll come in through what we call a distributed table which knows where all the shards are you'll run a sequel query and the distributed table will automatically break it up into pieces distributed out to one replica. Free shard data collection on it and then arrogated at the point of entry and handed back to the calling application. How does click house. Think about reading stale data. Is that much of an issue since this isn't really thought of a transactional database like does it have particular sensitivity to like reading the data. That may be a little bit stale. Or i'm just curious about how it compares to like transactional database in terms of how sensitive. It is to the latency. Well i think that the two issues here one of the things that we are very sensitive to latency so the ability to insert something and have it immediately quarry able including in its aggregate forms and that is something that we place a very high priority on what we don't worry about. So much is transactions so the click house transaction model is not a full acid compliant model which for example has isolation and full durability across multiple tables. Even a deal. That's just not something. That's very important in data warehouse applications because we're primarily writing data in large chunks. And then we have very few updates on it so a lot of the things that the transaction model gives you are not necessary as far as staleness of data. that's really in the eye of the beholder. So what will happen is that applications can make decisions for example. How long they want to keep. Data around and click costs has the ability to for example trim datasets automatically so that old data. That's no longer interesting is just removed automatically. Meanwhile you can keep aggregates in other words down sampled copies of the data. You can keep them in your materialized as long as you need so really what we're all about is less about worrying about staleness of data than very fast access to the information that you have and the ability to keep it around in an appropriate form for as long as you need it. Can you say anything else about the eviction policies of cows. Yes absolutely so. We have article. Ttl's our time to live. This is a great feature. That i i encountered when i was using mongo. Db maybe ten years ago and the idea is that you put a time to live on for example row in a table and what click costs will do. Is you say. Hey i want this around for ninety days. Once that ninety days is up click us will at its leisure. Find that roe injured. Drop it from the table. So that's a really critical feature that was put into click very early on now. What we've done though is extended it so that it it does much more than just drop data so for example we have. Ttl's that allow you to put data into hot storage for example envious and then use a t l to move it to a different storage format such as you know network attached storage or even object storage based on the amount of time that it's been sitting in the table another way that tdl's can be used which is quite interesting is for aggregates. We can re compute the aggregates say after thirty days or three months so that we changed the granularity and don't store as much data so as a result if you go and look at the aggregates in the table the hot data as a granularity of maybe a minute but you could actually extend that two hours or days or weeks as the data becomes older. These are all ways that we deal with the aging of data which is a really really important consideration when you're dealing with large data sets where the most recent data's most interesting but you still want the ability to go back and scan the old day to answer questions there as well. What's the replication policy for quick house. It's multi master eventually consistent. So you know when you have a set of replicas there is a zookeeper that's keeping track of things. Actually that's being replaced and click house will like other products such as kafka itself. We will have our own consensus manage directly in the server but basically you can go to any copy of replicated table update the data there and then it will within a usually very small period of time be automatically replicated any other copy also really interesting feature that click haas has that in these replicated system. Sometimes you'll get failures and you'll end up having to resubmit a block of data and it may land on another copy because your load balanced cyclic. House has what's called deduplication where we keep track of the hashes of the blocks that have been added. And if you add another block or a block again by accident say because of a failure will just automatically discard.

"A data warehouse from your point of view fit into the overall emergent data architecture like today's world. How does it fit in relative to the data lake. Are you a believer in the data lake house architecture. Give me a little bit. Your point of view on the macro data infrastructure perspective. Sure that is a difficult question to answer in a general way. But i'll just give you my my take on it and it's it's done where we see you so for click house the place that that people are particularly using it is for built in app. Analytics where you need to have very fenced very consistent response and this could be something. I'll just give you a concrete example. You have somebody managing of video downloads. There's actually a company called mocks. That does this. And one of the features of their service is that they offer real time analytics so that as users are consuming these videos that they're serving up. You can actually see statistics on what's happening. Like where are they getting. Excessive buffering are there particular areas where it looks like there's not sufficient network capacity to download quickly it did. Warehouses are essential for for building kind of application. And actually as you look across. Applications is not just these corner cases like content delivery network management. But it's a whole wide variety of applications that where people want to see more or less in real time what is going on in the world and get quick answers did. Warehouses are answered this because they store the data first of all is optimized storage former. Call him storage with high levels compression and they're also able to efficiently apply large amounts of compute memory to the data so that they can answer questions quickly. I haven't actually personally built applications that use lake house. But i think in general as you read off data lakes these are interesting for applications where you have very large amounts of data but the problem is that it's very difficult to get consistent performance from them because you're basically consuming data that comes out of things like s. three so the data's not optimized necessarily for consumption so you need to go through steps to to actually crunch it and then reprocessing processing on so. I think there's definitely a you know spectrum here where the the data warehouses are the pools of data that people need quick access to things. Like data. lake are tre longer-term batch analyses where people don't care about having quick answers but want to scan very large amounts of data in and do for example by run machine learning on it or something like that. There is a pretty regularly cited paper from michael stone breaker. Awhile ago about the age of one size fits all is over. Basically being about the rise of domain specific databases. You know he talks about no sequel and sequel databases and i can't remember what other types he talks about. Maybe graph databases are the trade offs in different data warehouses. Are they different enough. They severe enough that an organization would ever want multiple data warehouse types. Yes i believe. So so first of all i think. Stone breaker is totally right. On this point that the database market in general is fragmenting and one of the fundamental reasons for this is in order to answer questions quickly. You have to have data organized in the correct way and that goes back to why for example processing on data lakes tends to be kind of slow because the data's not optimize for the questions that you're asking so first of all in order to answer open ended questions quickly. Eugene kilometer storage high compression very efficient application of of compute beyond that there are some pretty significant differences in the data warehouses themselves so for example. Click house data warehouse. We work on as the property that runs just about anywhere. So that means that you can actually run it on an android phone but you can also run it in containers you can run it on kuban at as you can run it in rack equipment. You can run it on. Vm's so what that means. Is that for people running the data warehouse. They can then just make a choice of. Where's the proper to run it. Based on economics security and requirements there are other data warehouse architectures for example snowflake the just running cloud and will most likely never run anywhere else. So what that means then is if you know win organization if you have different requirements snowflake may be appropriate for one. Click may be appropriate for another. Have you seen applications that use click house on a mobile device. It was done as a demo. It's actually a blog. Article on the click on site. It's really a proof of concept what we do see. I think actually if you know if i were developer would use duct for that that it's sort of an analytic equivalent of sequel light and looks really great. We're all kind of fascinated by what we do. See with click. Is we see a lot of embedded applications for just looking at our customer base easily. Ten or fifteen percent of the customers that we have are doing embedded applications and for example the ship appliances which have click house embedded in them. That's very popular for applications. For example that do network management an iota.
A Brief History of Data Warehousing
"I'd like to start by talking a little bit about the domain of data warehouses. So we've done a bunch of shows recently and in the past about data. Warehouses snowflake redshift and google big query. Can you just tell me about the history of the data warehouse and what role. It plays today sure. I think that's a great question. So the did warehouse. History goes pretty far back. It really began in the eighties when people began to design systems like teradata and sybase iq. So these were systems that began to address. What was turning into a new breed. Va- -plication where people needed to scan large quantities of data to answer open ended questions and by open ended. I'm meaning that you had for example sales data or customer data or some other kind of interesting information about your company and you wanted to ask strategy questions about it which would mean that you would come in. You wouldn't know exactly what you're going to need to know in order to answer your question and then you you'd like to play around with it. These are promised the traditional relational databases of the time which would be late. Eighties early nineties. For just not very well suited to solve so this new breed of application developed and has evolved over a period of decades so for example the first products like teradata introduce things like paralyzation across nodes extending to things like verdict With very efficient column storage and compression and then of course the cloud data warehouses that we see today. Which are things like redshift. Which was really the pioneer here. And then snowflake
Talent Photographing Talent. James Anthony and his Hollywood Shutter
"James anthony welcome to the show man. How's it going. Thank you look. Everything is good good good to Speak to create another shooter out here but yeah thanks to me about you and i spoke about a week ago and when we had that conversation you were right on the heels literally running in the house from the oscars right you dislike literally set down and zoom coming from an oscar party or from something oscar related less before we dive into your background. Let's start there. Let's let's do you know how the in films since you're you're in tinseltown down there in films deals often start a movie halfway through the movie and then go back to the beginning. Let's start air. What was that. Like as a photographer shooting the oscars and being having that level of access well a little bit of surreal. A little bit of lag. Yeah should be here. You know like. I put a so. It's always that dance whereas like what this is crazy. And then as i know you've been putting in blood sweat and tears over year so this is where you should be so it's twenty when those moments kind of take over but a just working with the talent that i was working with regina king on our everything is out there but posing the photos regina king in awesome talented actress in director oscar. Award-winning actress indiana. I'm shooting her in hers. Her sweet and then aldus hodge who is also equally talented actor in also one of the stars of her film.

Should Potty Training Be Child-Led? With Bedwetting Expert Dr. Steven Hodges
"You subscribe to the idea that children should lead their potty training. That children should be the ones to let parents know that they are ready. And sort of following the child method rather than the parent doing three day potty training or one of these potty training methods yeah for sure. I'm definitely a fan of child. Lead apparent lead. But with a one caveat so i found that you know three and younger tends to be a little bit too young in terms of maturity from us. Kids generally four teams to be a little too old because they're in preschool and they should know by then honestly if you can't probably four then maybe they have an issue that makes it impossible and you could get evaluated but somewhere between three and a half and four. Most kids have the physical ability in the mental ability. To kind of get it into go. And so i think introducing it gently at that. Point is fine. I i don't think that you have to force the issue. Most of them the one case kind of positive peer pressure when other kids doing it and they wanna do it as well. The one for training late And i've noticed a lot. Is that peeing in. Party is very easy for those kids. They control it well. But pooping in the potty. The more you get used to doing it in a pull up the kinda hard on toilet and so. That's a little bit of takes a little bit of help guidance. Through that because some kids as communist constipation as communist toting issues aren't kids You know delayed. Pooping on the potty. Where they just asked for pull up to go poop. Instead of doing the troll is very communist world. It's just you know. Old habits are hard to break sometimes. And you gotta work a little bit at it. The kids don't usually willfully poop on the toilet as easily as they do the pig and do you think that's just a force of habit or do you have the sense that it's also a child feeling maybe rushed or push emotionally and isn't quite ready to take that step and they feel that the parent trying to urge them ahead. Did you ever consider those aspects. yes i think. Pooping has just a hard thing for people to do is is interesting. Every kid i've been around you know has had an episode. were kinda feel good to poop. And they don't really don't know what to make of it you know. It's an uncomfortable on. They learn easily that you can Hold it in that. Kinda urge goes away so that it's so common and then since their minds involves much worse. It like a stressful situation. I think kind of hiding behavior having up do it in just seems safer that sitting on a toilet Little bit
As COVID-19 ravages the world, closing the digital divide is more critical than ever
"The digital divide continues to be. A massive problem made worse by the coronavirus. Pandemic things are especially bad in appalachia. I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge sina is once again taking a look at this problem. Our series crossing the broadband divide and story in the latest package. Takes a look at the unique problems in appalachia a region with some of these slowest access speeds and accordingly lows incomes in the country with us to talk about. This is editor. Ray hodge welcome. Ray hey roger how are you so to kick things off. He gives us a sense of how big the broadband gap problem is in this area. I loved do that if we could actually find that information out in an accurate way and see. That's the that's the core problem. Isn't it the the big core problem here is that we don't have a full and complete rendering of the map of this digital divide because for many years. Now our our mapping has focused on deployment and not speed or actual access so while we have information about what census tracts have at least one connected household in them. We don't actually know. How many houses in each one of these census tracts is connected end accessing broadband much less whether or not they're getting the speeds that we normally classified as high speed broadband right and so we are looking at numbers that are probably severely. Undercounted the sec report which came out last month said that the number of folks who don't have access to broadband when down to fourteen point five million from about eighteen million a year ago most broadband experts. I think almost all broadband experts including the federal government and folks on the fcc all agree that that number is probably dramatically low and undercounted And and there's been a lot of issues you pointed out with the data behind these broadband maps that the fcc charge of some changes coming and we'll talk about that later later in the but let's let's get back to your story because you take a look at the appalachian region specifically you grew up in kentucky. You still live near louisville this curious. What broadband access has been like for you your family and how. It's changed over the years so we were based out of eastern kentucky. My family was and we've moved away from there. So i'm i'm what you would call the gas for the appalachian diaspora but i didn't get Internet in central kentucky until the same year. We got city water. Run out to our place somewhere around nine hundred ninety eight something like that and even though of course it was it was screeching -ly slow. Pardon the the the dialup pun. But yeah it's been intermittent right so it's taken that long to get it and where i live now in louisville i've got one gig fibre pay around sixty dollars a month. Which is the national average but there are still people out in the areas. Where i used to live in where you know. It may cost him one hundred dollars a month to get dsl equivalent speeds. It's insane the disparity there but growing up with This sort of Slow crawl towards access. It's remarkable to see what progress has been made because there is some but it's incredibly frustrating to see that after decades. This is still happening. These these problems are still happening. You're still dealing with a basic infrastructure and speeds. That are nearly unusable when it comes to like that so you talked a bit about the map and faulty data behind that but what are some of the other issues that has made broadbent hard to come by in this region so we've got a constant narrative going on where it's always sort of presented as a problem with hilly terrain and were unable to run lines or the the issue is often kind of bought and sold by that narrative. And that's really that's only one small part of the equation right. It's not just about hilly terrain because we've been able to make all kinds of technological advancements in these areas all kinds of construction industries like the mining and coal industry have no problem navigating hilly terrain. So you know. Mountains are not necessarily the thing that is always stopping Companies running out there a lot of the times it has to do with the fact that When it comes to infrastructure it has to do with the fact that it's not as profitable for for companies to run lines out into rural areas right even though they may be picking up subsidies and there was some fraud that had gone on in different rural regions By companies historically who claim to have all these people connected and then didn't so that's one part of it the infrastructure politics behind that the other part of it is that there are two digital heights right. There's one which is i. Don't have the lines. I'm divided from my lines. The other one is. I'm divided from the ability to pay for it which is actually the bigger digital divide across rural and urban areas.

"It's just i'm also country music fan and it's like when you tell somebody i love country music and they're like i love country music to you know johnny cash you know. They have a little bit of an attitude about country music except for classic country music. So the the equivalent. For that. With me at bruce is when you tell somebody ham springsteen fan and they're like oh alec springsteen i like nebraska and it's like the only album that they like as nebraska and that's okay like there's no wrong way to be a famous but it's a little bit like dude and it's almost always dude. It's like dude you're missing out like nebraska of course is a fantastic album and you know have you heard. Western stars have darkness on the edge of town. Have you heard wrecking ball. Which is my favorite like. Yeah yeah well i. I don't know if i'm gonna make this happen but i the the sports station i listen to here. In dallas Does a lot of fake characters. They do fake jerry jones. They do You know they you know and they and they. They have a the pushy sales guy. Chris chris that always is listening to dave matthews and talking about i'm six feet club and you know Me and ron's hanging out. You know. And i said i wanted to fake springsteen fan that he's done nothing starkness. Everything says you know just like well if you haven't seen him a hunt if you if you haven't hit three digits you haven't seen him show in so i wanted to do this fake here that i think would be a larry is that you know. So yes so anyway. There is a small percentage of fans that are just incredibly negative. In so when bruce announced that he was going to be on broadway and they announced the ticket prices. You know resist forgotten the common man. I've always been a fan. I've gone to shows multiple times. I can't believe he forgot this. And then people can't believe people went to more than one show. And i went and i brought fact. Well i know some of you go shows five or six nights in a row and in the queue to try to get in the pit five or six times in a row different jesse. Why you're you're taking someone else a chance to be in the pit you know and i just duty but anyway so there is a lot of negativity and i said look. I'm never gonna go. i can't afford it. I live in this but the man could do whatever he wants and so a guy sent me a facebook. Dm and said. Why aren't you going. Like i just afford it. He said well. What could you afford like. Well what do you mean he said. I can get you a ticket and like well. Let me talk to linda. And he says i have one. It's the middle range like the four hundred dollars. Something you know. Seven hundred can't remember now what it was but it was. It wasn't the high end but it was a mid range and he says let me i said okay. Let me go talk to my wife and okay linda. you know. And she's well and so. We googled and we found on. Travelocity you a little pod. You know that just is basically looks like a little. It looks like a cruise a cruise ship but it was perfect but i needed round trip airline and it was like okay. You can go for this. You can ticket You know we had a little bitty savings account..

It looks in my eyes and shakes my hand. I get to say. Thank you That was five years. Go to wash my hands. Which is a challenge in the pandemic. But i had this amazing moment and it was. He literally shoved me. Shove me to make sure that. I got in place. Because he knew what bruce was about to do and he put me as you know as they say about wayne gretzky he made sure i was where the puck was going and that was amazing. So chris You know bruce. Plays saint paul when he goes to minnesota to the twin cities area and It took a few times. But i think chris did get to say hello to bruce but i have not yet been able to do that except for that moment during morocco at the end of february twenty did not make one of the book signings. No looking did not. I had a an interesting term as mayor and i was constantly Just busy though. I did get to go to broadway. So that's good I and i promise we're going to get to our agenda but because fascinating because i'm thinking of fine mayor i'm like okay. Well mr mayor. We miss mrs mayor. We don't do keys to the city. Well we're doing what now. But we know i'm just saying trust me they're like you go fa make it happen. Go find someone we are doing.

Rioters who police that had bear Mace It's not only painful, but you literally can't open your eyes and when you can open your eyes and you're in the middle of what way would call a fight?

I might die and there's nothing I can do to defend myself at this point, so I just started screaming my lungs for the under. Give me a way out.

Malcolm, who had been flown in by the soon to be Champ Asses, spiritually advisor suggested they get together afterwards for friends celebrating the man of the hour on his big night catches. Marcellus Clay is the new heavyweight champion of the World, boy, and I don't even have it on my face. He spies himself in the mirror. Oh, my goodness. Okay. Okay. What cash?

"hodges" Discussed on OnEducation
"That i'm not teaching the same way even right like so much of what i'm seeing on like we've had these conversations for for years about how it's not about being the sage on the stage it's not about standing up lecturing yet. The fall back that we went to in the fall. Was everybody joining into the zoom whether you know was this concurrent high flax synchronous situation and what is the do possess forty five minute monologues where our students are not engaged. And so what are some things that you know okay. Great hodges. that's fantastic. How what should i do right in so the thing bat That i've really been talking with people about trying to keep in mind is really thinking through the lens of asynchronous and synchronous riot but not putting it into the category of that is for online only so synchronous things that we have in the classroom. Whole group conversations. Forty five minute are in Say conversations forty five minute lecture. Like one way dialogues are synchronous. Where is the opportunity to have that. I was having this conversation again. Going back to the conversation. I had earlier with a high school teacher and she was telling me how she's not getting anyone coming in her. Her virtual students are not coming into their zooms and she was so i just stopped. Like she's like. I record my lesson. And i put it up there and they can just grab it whenever and she was saying it like out of a frustration of like these kids. Don't care enough to show up in there. But at the same time i was like if all you're doing is just talking at them for forty five minutes. It doesn't matter when they come right like so than think about. What are those a synchronous things right. And when we say a synchronous it means i still have a deadline on it. It's still valuable content. It means that the kid or the learner gets to be able to shine because they're prepared in that moment to showcase that information right so like homework is asynchronous. I could do it in the classroom while i'm eric. I'm so inspired. And i have an opportunity to do it home whenever i've had some time to rethink information and do all of that so i think that's a big part is trying to decide which is which in win is the best time to do that. We know regardless of if we're adults or if their kids like we need to chuck this information and do it and like ten minute lecture and then most of it needs to be discussion. Most of it needs to be that in that social conversation that social. Tell me what you know. let me help you out. You know having that. Collaboration all those pieces that come into it and so. That's why i kind of retracted. When i said forty five minute conversation because it's not a conversation. And i think that that's really really important to distinguish between those and then i'm gonna pause and i'm not done but i want to pause because i want to have this conversation and not just me hop on my love rewards on that but i want to jump in. I was just thinking that teachers could learn a lot from youtubers like if they actually just opened their mind to what you especially pro youtubers do which is fifteen minute videos really interesting content. Good intros good out. Tros call to actions like seriously teachers. Go watch dan. tdm on youtube. Go watch you know some of these other like especially some of these other really popular gaming youtubers that really of got this mastered. It's it's it's the art of engagement. Yes yes another is. He got the average like come on. Come through for me because it is. It's the art of engagement. Not entertainment and i think that's the part that is so so like this is why i love talking to y'all i i'm just gonna kinda bask in the glow of being around the two of you bad the it is not about putting on a show. It is not. Oh my gosh engagement. Means that i have to have like lasers in an m music intro and all that kind of stuff stickers on your face on your face he he said it. Oh my god. We're gonna get the emails now where you talking about. Let's not it's it is engagement is. Let's let's nerd out for a moment and talk about the brain in all of our brain basically has three major system reactions like the first one is about Attention right like something's gotta get our attention and then something's gotta process of Or oriented of like okay then then the third one is going to have a like a discussion or a decision around okay so like if you go to primitive mind here like you're walking through the forest and all of a sudden you step on a twig. The found is going to alert you and your hope. What was that and then you you orient. You turn to wherever you heard the sound. And then you make a decision based upon what's presented infirmity right. So like sabertooth tiger versus cuddly kitten right with. You're going to make a decision of like. What do i do next. And so bringing that into the classroom and you've got the attention you've got this interest part so teacher comes in and if you're you know i was a secondary teacher so this like whatever your your routine is to kick off instruction at the beginning of the class. So maybe it's like hey guys. Let's get started today or maybe it's you know a o'clock or some kind of something but you have your brain is alerted. Okay now give look over and see and then they have this decision time so how you bring in. The next sentence is going to decide whether or not that kid is going to pay attention to you so bits like welcome to the zoo today. We're gonna go through ordinal numbers. Jimmy turn off your lights and do all this kind of stuff like kids. What is there. What is their decision. Their decision is going to be.

"We walk them all all of that. This this baited into our our twitter. Dm chat This deepfakes. Now we've talked deepfakes before on the on the podcast i. I think that they're unbelievable. And we're getting into like very kind of uncanny valley type territory a little bit and You know one of the one of the scary things about this stuff in this is probably not to like take this podcast in a completely dark direction by by like the real the real scare of this is someone hacking like television networks as k so let me give you like the absolutely plausible. Ken you know we have a you. I should say have a president who you know scowl of anything and at the very moment willing to probably do almost anything to stay in power and that means potentially you know in like the craziest scenario starting a war. So someone Hacks you know. Cnn says this is a statement from the president and says i am launching missiles at iran. you know. We have tolerated there. Whatever long enough. We have declared a full scale attack. But it's a fake. Yea but because of the context of the situation and who it is that's not a completely unplayable scenario and so now we're in like the like the whole lake. Nona apparatus has to say. No no no no no and has to do it within seconds like we're like within minutes there has to be a whole machine that goes into work to say. This was not the president of the united states. this was a fake But like this is how scary. This kind of stuff can get into the world of real. We hope that there's frigates things in place for that to actually not happen. Let's just say that right really. Yeah we really do hope that. That's actually the case. But if you haven't seen this we're going to make sure we lincoln in the show notes and it is york times article about basically how sophisticated a i. Artificial intelligence has gotten to basically make fake people. I were showing this to my wife and my kids and it is so freaking creepy. I made the reason why it's creepy. That's what you're saying that is that it's so real. It's you can change anything about anyone and create any fake person by. They were talking about plausible scenarios. Like you can go to these companies. Mike and you can like for your websites have specific business. Well you know. There's some people out there that do a professional photography of real people in specific scenarios that fit all these business type scenarios right. but they're expensive. You have to pay them. You know whatever might be if you just had a machine. They just created all of those fake people in all of these different scenarios and they were just a mishmash of real people but they're not real people anymore and then you decide okay. I need to make sure that. I have a specific gender A specific race age etcetera. And everything else. In between. And i need him in this specific scenario computer go at it gives you a perfect looking fake person and if you go through the site it is a fantastic web article. I just was thinking. About how many great off shoots of this is for educational purposes mike on a discussion just artificial intelligence in a in a social studies class a class where the coal teaches creative writing course and where you can talk about. Okay what can we. Let's take the next step of the creative writing and and use. What is the next step. You know basically like we could make fake people you know whatever might be and now. The artificial intelligence is sophisticated enough to be able to do that and be able to tell a story. But it's crazy how amazing this is right. Now this isn't the future stuff this is it exists right now you can go onto their website. You can purchase one thousand people for one hundred dollars thousand fake people for your website or your other said video games too. I i guess i could see that. Yeah so anyway. I i loved it because of the discussion that can be had around that and it also kind of the creepy factor of its and how sophisticated it is it just at this moment. Bad crazy crazy. I don't need to go back like too far but you know there were simpler times. I remember them with. I was a kid. I feel like the nineties. Were pretty good for me in some ways so maybe go back to the nineties. A little the music. The music good looks great. So let's go. Let's go back to at least a time when we good music. Bare minimum commitments. Have that please. So so we just had a really good conversation with brienna. Hodges that you're getting here in a few minutes And and know a couple articles have come across our desks Kind of i guess related a little bit too even what we talked about with brienna Mainly because the wording gagarin is popping up popped up in this crazy. I'm going to bring it up again. The sticker conversation too but everyone. I can't can't not. I'm not talking about if i'm talking about it. Oh my god i got. I got a start by our friend who we should definitely i should. I should send them a message in get him back on jayjay guiliani he's Who is brilliant. And and absolutely a hilarious guy to hang out with But just wrote a really interesting order. Hasn't a really interesting article in this. I we're gonna link to it Learning over compliance to shift to engagement online. It seems like exactly what we were talking about. A little bit with breanna right. Yes and it's focuses around. I going to pronounce. Schlecht the sh- like these work basically about levels of engagement. And that's part of the article but really the biggest takeaways that i have about this. Are that it is really easy as educators for us to focus on compliance and he he states it. Why because we've been taught that compliance is a good thing. He bowled that right there in in in the article. And we've seen it. We rewarded for that as employees in our our lives to comply to specific norms or specific things that we should be doing and so he writes in an article that compliances easy to do. It's easy to teach and it's easy to reward and so but when we work towards that towards compliance were not ever going to get full engagement and that's really there's a great Graphic there has describing as far as what a highly engaged classroom. Looks like you know as far as the different types of of Engagement levels and what a a well managed classroom looks like and then finally the pathological what they call a pathological classroom and really what it brought to light for me. Mike is it. The the connection i made was with cameros. And we talked about it on the podcast before as far as having your camera on and and making sure that everyone who does that is more about compliance than it is about fully engaging your students. Yeah and that's really the conversation. We're trying to have with our educators Is if your class is truly engaging and we find ways to really bring in the students and and make the like want to be part of what's happening and and you really bring in student voice and you give them Great feedback and timely feedback on. Whatever they're doing then they buy into what's happening as far as in class whether it be in a distance learning environment or in face to face or something in between and it's really difficult and complex in a environment and that's for sure we know that and it's hard and and one of the ways that we find some sort of peace i think in an and maybe a win you ever call it a win a quote unquote win is that we have the students all turn their camera on and does equal though fully engage students absolutely not an many teachers will tell you that though their cameras were on. That doesn't mean that they were engaged. They were distracted by other things. Of course whatever might be just but it just like in class the other part that you know that reminds me of the other things that we've talked about in the past two though mike. Remember the obsession and they'd even happened up in canada with cell phones. It's a client's thing it's like we is. We want our kids to do these certain things but the reason why is because we feel that if they do that that this other thing happens to this equals this other thing and it's not a fact at actually doesn't mean at all that there that that's happening We talked about dress code. Who i was talking about like the dress code policies that they had for me as an educator or for the stem they do not equal engagement in in the educational process. Then of those things are equivalent to each other but they are things that are easy to look into hell whether or not you're complying or not. Is your camera on or off. I could tell that right away off the bat that so it's something i can quickly assess. I guess safety with a cell phone is not there. Take it away And dress code. These are the types of things that we tend to do an educational settings..

Since argentine forces had surrendered to the british army in the falklands agentina. Tina regarded this game as a rematch argentina. One to one and maradona scored both goals very arguably the two most famous goals of all time.

Stevie Parle Shares His Spaghetti And Clam Recipe
"I am Stevie Paul. I have a few restaurants rather than a couple of restaurants style. A pop-up could joy in west London and I wanted to tell you how to make spaghetti with clams. This is my favorite thing to we think. So so my kids type thing to. The most of the people you cook it for think you'll really some kind of genius when you make it and yet it's incredibly simple. Clemson Volaille obviously is a cool mentally have unbelievable flavor. The juice comes out of clam is just tastes out of this world. Very easy to make you need. Spaghetti doesn't need to be a fresh dried past united of standard. Supermarket blue-and-yellow packet round is fine. It really is fine. But if you see a slow a dried has to take a longer amount of time to cook I always think that's good into look at actually how long it takes cook it from the pack is says your Spaghetti takes like fourteen minutes but something bad instead of ten or eleven it's a nice big spaghetti by the Nice Hodge wieght and it takes time to cook, but it's going to be chewing delicious. Anyway you need spaghetti. Hasley, dry Chili, white wine, and unique clams. Really a peasant can he love clams but equally, if you make has to climbs with like ten clams lesson than that is absolutely delicious and the juice they create makes much wonderful sociopathic. So festival, you're GONNA have everything ready for this dish because once you making it, you gotta move kind of fast. So let's save a gonNA. Do that you people you need a couple of hundred grams of Spaghetti. You need a big hand full of Nice. Salted Wilshire associates the see. Boiling rapidly, you need to finally up to cloves garlic your time you're doing this trying shook the evenly and small, and you need a handful of parsley flatly parsley leaves pig from the studios. Again shops when I'm joking Parsley, why do is I kinda scrunch up into a bowl and then again big shove knife and so slice through scrunched up all of Parsley as finally as I can and then go through it again once at done that in judge Moore says really fine many needle clams anything from ten to betty offense they come in different sizes it kind of normal Palo plans again, this country really good. I. Tend to choose the smaller ones just because the big ones could be a little bit cheery and be not nice. And why do I washed clams under running Warta just to make sure that not gritty. Swish Moore around, and then if they open while washing them, you can throw those ones. Sometimes they it's like only salmon them in those the you get rid off, but they should just be tidy shot Monday, running water and Swish around in a single appeal something for a few minutes just to get them nice and clean 'cause it's a bit disappointing when you you're clams and you get a bit of sand I mean he's not the end of the world who have made you sick. It's just wants tweets and so you've got your big kind of woods boiling. You've got your garlic party jobs. You got some dried chili like crushed dried chili nice specific one just. Don't want it to be crazy hall. So if it's a kind of mild crush drudge chilly but we Quarter, teaspoon of something. And you got your clements watched and then you need a wide hand with a LID. If you have a big frying pan on a lead that fits on that side and my spine has it sometimes, you can use another one use a play or something that's ideal whose what you're GonNa do is you're gonNA. Steam the rams, and if you have the more piled on each other, they will open bat the juice from. The clams and the one which didn't mention you need a couplet glasses of white wine just dry white one needs to reduce. So if you've got the mobile pilot up in a small pan that juice one, Medusa wine and clam juice and oil anyway create the right kind of emotion fear. peste. Does funny because hardly any ingredients is nothing really technically but do but just got to pay attention to the details of can make. something. That is just unbelievably good. So you big votes spoiling your wide hand is now you're gonna put it on the heat and get aw- and you the pastor infest. So this recipe once you've got that stuff prepared it takes less time than takes Cook Pastor. So you can drop the spaghetti into the boiling water if your pan on some olive oil in the Pan and at the garlic and then just when that garlic. In, just a few seconds isn't good glove of olive oil by the way don't be shy it's a few titles swings and then he'd put garlic in just really starts frizzell before it's cooked too much anything you. But in a little pinch of Dr, Chilean you the clams straightway. Why normally then do is tad tossed them around said they get cut sit in this garlicky chilly thing on once clams get hot than they. Have Been. Put in the white wine, a big loss of two hundred Mil something like that, and then put the lid on straightway. A met should be lecturing around and steaming you pestis public been bullying this point for like three minutes and remember it takes ten twelve or something depending on the grand. Pasta. So you pass this boiling. You're Clemson's steaming. You'll Hasley chopped and you just wait a second. I but you just gotTa wait now in drink a bit of your white one and then when you pastor is three-quarters cooks your clams of probably open dictate the lid off the clam ham and then drain your pastor even though it's quite ready look in your clam hand, it should be nice and juicy but really cooking thing you pay attention because if you've got a massive pan and it was really really Hard and you wind might have completely reduced down by now. But if it's a small pan may not have reduced enough year, you wanted to be a good layer of Jews. But you don't want it to be ruled tree and as it reduces what happens is the olive oil, a most us in that mixture, and then you take the pastor drained it. We've just pulled out the with have tongues coming. And even though he's not quite could you into the clam on any says enough liquid that it looks juicy in statement good already that's fine. Otherwise put in a little bit of past awards. Back on so that the pastor is cooking in the CLEM. Pan Important that
Knowing What Leads to Victory
"This is Jaakko podcast number to forty five with Echo Charles in me Jaakko willink good evening Echo vide-. Also joining tonight is Dave Burke leaving dave good evening. Did you make it to the status of Honorary Co host. Yes No. As thinking, we're getting their people want to know why they call him a good deal Dave. This. The fact that we've been talking about this is why check back again tonight with more combat lessons from the. From the document called combat lessons. Document written in the throes of World War Two and what they were doing interviewing. Frontline leaders and front line troops. Fact. The subtitle is rank and file in combat what they're doing and how they're doing. We've covered to these so far, and this is the third one. And you know sometimes I, think you know, I mean, we kinda get the idea right and I'll start thumbing s I started thumbing through. This one is you know do we really need to cover another one of these? So I started coming through it and you start reading these things. And I can't put it down and I'm still learning and so. I figure if I'm learning, we can all learn. Why why try to hold back from the people? No reason. We can get right into it. So here, this combat lessons. Volume Three. and. We've done to these so far actually I forget what number podcast they are, but we've covered to these volumes is the third volume. And this is what all the volume start off with this. The paramount combat lesson learned from every operation is the vital importance of leadership. which is really an interesting thing that we say. Every single time we talk to people are equipment or supply, and above are all men and above all our men are splendid. Aggressive and determined leadership is the priceless factor which inspires a command and upon which all success in battle depends. It is responsible for success or failure. And that is. July third, nineteen, forty, four. Starts. Off just jumping right into leadership command need for leadership comments received from all active theatres continue to emphasize the need for competent and aggressive leaders. This is especially true as regards junior officers and noncommissioned officers. Who tended General Courtney Hodges who observed operations in? North Africa and Italy stated. Before, I even get to that. Why is it? So why is it just so awesome? That they're just pointing out over and over and over again in each one of these volumes that leadership is the most important thing on the battlefield. And yet. We. Work with companies. That have no leadership training for their people. Until Axel Homefront shows up and then I guess they do. But it's bizarre. that. It's bizarre that it is so hard. What makes it? What what day? What makes it so hard to see? That leadership is the most important thing. What do you think makes it so hard to say I. Stumped. Good. Yeah. There's a couple of things I. I don't think people. Realize how impactful leadership is almost convinced themselves that hey, are what we can do is. We bring people with these skills or are our software, Sweden. They get. So wrapped up in all these other components they lose sight of the fact that this thing intangible thing that you can't really track with the with the spreadsheet they lose sight of how important it is and I think the other part that we've seen a lot now is. People lose sight of how often you have to keep addressing leadership, and so they think it's sometimes eight. No I understand what a good leadership and they think they are applying it but they don't realize that. Hey, I've gotta keep addressing this over and over and over again and they lose sight of not just how important. But also how important is how hard it is to sustain it and we come work with companies. The more we work with them and the long work of them. The more they want to keep doing and they realize man had I had no idea how long this journey was going to be. But the ones that figured out. To. They. They. They elevate quickly they so good so fast when they make it a priority. The first thing that you said. You are defacto not detached when you're inside of a company your firefighting day to day, you're trying to figure out what the next quarter is going to be. You're trying to figure out what's going on with the sales team. So you're in it and so you you start to lose track of the fact that this is this is. All about leadership. Yeah. So that happens and that's why when we come in with a company. We can immediately see because we are detached.

They had twenty years ago. At least you haven't on after that I. Don't it's not a valid argument. I don't know. I I understand why cowboy fans are knowing.

Put in a draw like a lottery. I mean to see if you win the just pay for the price of the ticket. I think a lot. I mean I think I'm hearing. Fourteen. Thousand for the stadium of fans will be there. Yeah, they just announced in Philadelphia no fans for twenty, twenty or twenty twenty one obviously this year. Whatever reasons they plan on playing. Playing football, you know. They said we plan on playing football, but there's going to be Zero Fan, my brother, his season tickets and stuff same thing I guess we've had the same seats forever, but I guess it's just on pause or paint.

"The old timers like my dad. He doesn't want it to be shorter, but I do think this sixty game. This stretch is going to be amazing, but how? How great and I. I am a Fan, but not a big fan. How great the Astros Fuel Right? They were worth. Beating booths their whole life, and then this thing happened now. They're like they got a free ticket. Well, see there. There might be getting their free pass from the fans, but the players don't forget. They will be being in every single one every game. Yeah, it's interesting. Why maybe is not as frequent but boy?

This baseball sprint is nearly every team is in it if you look back at Abou, think it was fifty or sixty games for the nationals or last year. They were about ten to fifteen games under five hundred. So it all it takes is those first twenty games if you're hot if you can win. Fifteen twenty, even twelve out of twenty I mean. That number by you know. If you get hot quake, boy, you'd be in the playoffs and find for world series especially out of the gate, if one of these teams can get like you, said fifteen out of the first twenty mu, your driver's seat. It's going to be nice. It's going to be not who's your pick? My take I mean it's hard not to go dogs, isn't it? I'd open. I, I like the Yankees if they can stay healthy of course like any team I like the Yankees with Garrett Cole Signing Stanton judge coming back will be healthy. They are loaded. I like Minnesota Masonic Al.. The! Astros will be back regardless of what happens. So. Those are three picking for the division. Maybe. The angels can finally get Mark Trout in the playoffs. With them, adding rent on, and then in the National League, I gotTa go you know the dodgers have done nothing but win. maybe roll franchise braves. Maybe get back there again then, maybe the Central! Cubs cardinals yeah again. I actually think that. That was going to tell you my i. think the brewers has got a good shot. I think the break you know who the braves signed yesterday. Did you see that?

You know if you're teaching the kid. You don't WanNa to have him watch that guy because he. Doesn't have the right swings at terrible pitches and. You know, but whatever he's a be so I'm excited, but yeah. I like the braves. The brewers I do think the Astros will be there I hate the Yankees and I.

I am driving the van and the roads perfectly straight eight and I can see the group of kids including your mom maybe ten students in a group and this bolt of lightning hit right in the middle title of the students while they were biking and I said Oh shit this is not good. I saw all the kids stop so I drove up. Am I said what happened. And of course they were all very. They were very excited. It was like an adventure. They said this bolt of lightning came down. Hit the road and it didn't hit any of the students and this bolt of lightning partly hit the road and traveled on the surface. They could see the lightning affect pass underneath them and dissipate just in case. They hadn't had enough excitement for one day. Mr Hodges sped ahead in the van to prepare a special special kind of border-crossing for the kids I wanted to stage a fake inspection. The border guards would be frisking. The students inch the border guards. Were compliant Mr Hodges snap photos and chuckled. Assist students were halted and searched and then later on that day after we were camping in the United States. One of the kids came up to me and said Mister Hodges That wasn't such a good idea. One of the kids. It had something that he shouldn't have and we'll leave it at that Nothing happened but it could have gone sour. Once they crossed the border on July tenth the group pedaled into Washington. They camped outside of Bellingham biked South unjustice of Seattle sticking to lane highways and back roads. The climbed over a long pass near Mount Rainier. By that point. The kids were in such good shape that they rocketed uphill. The trouble came on the downhill and we were having water bottle. Flights there were four of us. I was the last person with water in my water. Author bottle and Song is chasing after me and who's definitely faster. And so he was reaching for my water bottle in the cage and our handlebars on the BUYSC linked and we just flew head over heels. We were going downhill not steep very casual day. No traffic nice weather and and Then I got a notice from one of the students. Hey you better go back. We had an accident. I broke my wrist and scratched up my face bad and he broke his cheekbone. They had to go to the emergency room and get treated and cleaned up. Mr Hodge's offered that Sean and Linda could stay on the trip and ride in the van or fly home so we flew home. I was very very sad. I didn't didn't want to but Hodges talked to my dad and they chose that I would fly them. So Sean in solidarity went home.

"And then of course every year that went on the kids would come back and say hey we want something even bigger so then we started looking at maps and say oh okay. What about Alaska kind of outrageous? Right GonNa let their kid go with a teacher during the summer for forty thirty days to Alaska. Yep that's Mr Hodges himself but you see by that time. The parents of the students had already already seen the proof that I had a reliable operation. Mr Hodges and twenty enthusiastic students from the Hoover Lincoln Bike Club started to pour over over maps. They plan the itinerary for twenty five hundred mile. six-week ride traversing Vancouver Island Interior British Columbia Washington Oregon and California. Yeah and then ending up back in the hoover parking lot other. Mr Hodges liked to call it the Alaska trip they would really only cross the state line of Alaska for heading south. He created a gearless te attend speed bike street clothing. A helmet of course in nineteen seventy-five helmets were flexible straps of leather. That provided minimal protection -tection but Mr Hodges had one for each student to at least conjure the image of safety. The kids did their best to avoid wearing them as it made them look like total nerds according to my mom hodges itemized cost down to the last penny for each meal the gear campsites the trip would cost each student five dollars per day or two hundred and ten dollars total which today would be about a thousand dollars. Yeah we were just pumped to be going on this trip. Everybody everybody so excited. Twenty five hundred miles is an ambitious distance covering six weeks to make it back on time. The group needed to average sixty five miles per day. Hundreds of made us do fitness tests to qualify so we had and to run a mile in a certain amount of time. I can't remember what it was. But he said there were three things that he required to go on the Alaska trip strength attitude in endurance. Oh yes qualification patient tests. Oh that's right. Yeah and we had to pass a bike maintenance tensed where we need to be able to fix our bikes one of the things that I set up near near the end was I wanted to know whether we could do a hundred miles. One day we went out to visa. They have a nice trail which does is a loop around the visa. Levy and so we bicycled around there for a hundred miles. Nearly every kid who wanted go on the Alaska trip was able to do the one. They were tired but they did it. Mr Hodges hosted a meeting for parents to go over the route out the equipment needed in the tannery a few days later on June twenty first nineteen seventy five. Mr Hodges and twenty two junior high and high school kids set off for Canada. The kids took the train from San Jose to Washington while Mr Hodges and his wife Ramona drove their van packed to the gills with gear for the trip. My Birthday Dave was the next day and I'm just so excited to be on the train to Washington. We all stayed up til midnight and I thought everybody was staying up because as we were so excited about the trip and they wanted to hear me playing my guitar and sing and actually they were just waiting till midnight to go to bed so they could wish happy birthday and then get outta either. The kids met Mr Hodges and Ramona in northern Washington where they boarded a ferry to Vancouver island during their first week. They wrote the length the Vancouver Island from south to North Ramona followed with a van full of food tennyson repair equipment and would meet the bikers at their campsite. Each night off. We had some very bad weather on Vancouver Island. I mean it was nasty rained almost every day and we only had two tenths for twenty four students students and we packed. I had my own but the students had there was a boys. Ten and a girl stint we would have to bike in the rain. Camp Out in the rain sleep in the rain yet up and then the hard part pack in the rain and then get after you pack. Get ready and bicycle from the get-go raining the whole time after three days of some good old fashioned type two fun. The the group boarded an overnight ferry from Vancouver island to Prince Rupert on the mainland of coastal BC. Then something almost magical occurred. We took the ferry boat over to the mainland and the rain stopped and the sun came out of rural almost like well. Where's the music once? They got to Prince. Rupert Committee. Hodges and the students took a short ferry ride across the bay between BCC and Alaska. But it's funny that you guys call it the Alaska trip because like weren't in Alaska was the mystique ridden from Alaska because it sounds so far up there all the way down to San Jose. Didn't we touch a list gives it took a fairy touched. Alaska see we did it court. Then they came back to Prince Rupert it clean their bikes and pointed their wheels east to begin the journey through British Columbia. The terrain was quite varied. I remember the mosquitoes were horrific and the writing was Strenuous but we you know we were young and fit and we stopped every twenty five or thirty miles for snack. Breaker rest stop. Aw from Prince. Rupert Hodges and the kids spent a week peddling four hundred and fifty miles to the inland city of Prince. George they stop to camp near gushing. Snow Snow Melt rivers and Pristine Lakes taking advantage of freshwater bathing opportunities whenever possible. During the long rides the kids would naturally divide up into groups oops and chat as they rode. But they'd stop at assign checkpoints to regroup. I created three teams of people with three different major jobs. Jobs and those jobs would rotate. Three jobs were cooking team cleanup team and camp team and you had to to you know. Load The van unload the van with all our stuff that hauled our sleeping bags and food and camping gear and hodges was just incredibly well organized and he kept us all going in line. He had our soup menu. Plan down to the last Buy So many cans of Veg all so many cans of this of that kool-aid and Tang and powdered milk. We never went hungry. We were never hungry. There was always enough that I recall but you know I was a smaller person. Maybe not eating as much as some others and even if some of the kids did run on a little hungry. Mr Hodges always had a creative solution up his sleeve a camp on one of the early days in Canada one of the Boys Greg Approach Mr Hodges before or dinner and said I'm hungry. It's not dinner time yet right so I'm thinking to myself Ha Here's a challenge. So I got this two pound jar of strawberry jam out of the truck and this is a hot day so the strawberry jam is very liquid. I said Greg if you can eat that entire two pound jar of jam in thirty minutes I will give you ten dollars dollars. So we all gather around right and he opens his Jarve Cham- and he swallows it in three minutes. It's the jam is gone and his mouth is covered with jam right and he puts it down and says I want more. Tom and I realized Oh way better than I do that. He's going to throw up and no he didn't throw up and yes. He had dinner following that not to be outdone by their science teacher. The kids quickly went to work inventing a retaliation. The worst prank that they pulled was on my wife they eight faked an accident on the road. She comes around driving the van and here. They are sprawled out on the road. Apparently at looked like maybe eight students it's lying down and they got catch-up escorted catch up on each other and my my my wife tells the story She Sheba's I scared and realize Oh my God this is terrible. What's happened? Then she pulls out the first day kit and wretches over to them and then they all get up saw a prize and my wife almost slugged every one of them.

"Back then. Of course there there were no cellphones. Parents had a vague idea of what their children were up to for the weekend. And where you were just unplugged you were unconnected connected. And there's a certain liberation to that that we had a pretty young age it was just a big adventure a big adventure the whole time. More kids boys and girls began joining the club. When the founding group graduated from Hoover in nineteen seventy three they renamed the club? The Hoover Lincoln by club so that they could still participate in. We can rides as high schoolers by Nineteen seventy-five. Mr Hodges had over forty forty middle school and high school kids in his squad we all sort of came together in this bike group and really did become kind of an auxiliary auxiliary family for many of us. It's shifted my life. You know I was sort of a quiet shy kid but come seventh grade eight eighth grade. I sorta broke out of my shell and found how strong I was. I'd never been pushed before San Jose public schools in the nineteen nineteen seventies hosted kids from an array of backgrounds. Racially Hoover was a diverse. Mix of Caucasians Latinos Asians. Many schools had recently closed does do to earthquake safety regulations. So kids from all over the city were bused to hoover of the kids who joined Mr Hodges by club about half white and half Hispanic some kids came from more affluent families others came from modest backgrounds regardless they all dug up bikes and hit the roads with their cutoffs sneakers. The kind of irreverence. You'd be hard pressed to find anywhere besides a raucous goggle of teenage kids.

"Ed Hodges or Mr Hodges Hodges or Haji Haji as his students no him wasn't your typical nineteen seventies public schoolteacher. In his classroom at Hoover. Junior high students would have to be prepared to roll up their sleeves. If they want to learn he made them take their thumbs to their poems for forty eight hours to teach a lesson about opposable digits. He said a pulley system on a tree outside to prove that one on kid could overpower ten and to demonstrate the effects of surface area. He had one student lie down with a huge flat rock on their chest while another wall up the rock with a sledgehammer just very enthusiastic and kind of eccentric. He was fun. This is one of my mom's classmates Linda Ferson. He could relate to US kids. He gets right down to our level and I don't think he ever progress pass that Mr Hodges had a unique way of engaging kids in class but it was his presence outside the classroom. That really caught doc kids attention. He rode his bike to school every day. Mr Hodges pedaled in on his schwinn continental which the students nicknamed the tank for its hefty frame and formidable command of the city streets rain or shine the tank and its rider inspired a lot of mystique over the years so so much that my mom and her girlfriends who also were their bikes to hoover every day requested that hodges sponsor a school bike club so that they could go on rides together..

"Cordelia hello and ready for a pop quiz. How God favorite teacher from going up? Go Mrs Berbie she. She was the best ever she was so spunky and every time she'd read aloud to us she just had the most incredible voices and she's the kind of teacher that pushed us really hard. But you as a student you never realized you're being pushed. If that makes sense it was always fun. I'm pretty sure I would have gone to school on the weekends. If she'd offered it I I loved her so much. But what about you or your favorite teachers Mine are Mr Greco. Miss Jones. An arm to think about it. It's comes on muscle quick. They both made me believe that. Not Not only could I be a writer but that I would probably be good at it if I worked really hard and applied myself All right next question for you. Did you like school. I mean yeah I feel like you should know. I'm kind of a nerd by now but I also struggled with that. I mean I remember being in middle school and staring out the window on the Most Immaculate Bluebird Dad ever seen in my life and just wanting to scream I feel like I learned so much from moving and the land and people and sometimes sometimes being stuck inside a classroom just felt completely wrong. But what about you I would say aspects of it I mean I was. I was good at school. I but I definitely definitely did not love it. I had this feeling that there was so much that you couldn't learn just from a book about people about relationships about community about success and ultimately really about myself Well do you feel like you lost faith in traditional school. Earning no but Funny Funny Story. I remember the first time I dropped off at school. I'm driving there. He's got his lunch box and the new backpack and he's like totally excited and I'm trying to be positive sort of but out of like nowhere. Pink Floyd's another brick in the wall comes on in my head like it just turns on and I'm like hey teacher leave those kids alone you know and I'm like walk in and take a minute like meanwhile I'm just like all in all know rick in the wall. Yeah but teachers. They are incredible. So I guess I have faith in it I just think it's one type of learning for a particular setting. I guess I don't really think it's totally reflective of what happens when you leave the walls of the school and you start exploring the world. Well today. We wanted to bring you a story about one very incredible teacher epic bike trip in the summer of nineteen seventy five and the lessons learned outside died the walls of the classroom. There are a lot of ways to learn in life. I'm fiscal hall and I'm Cordelia Czars. And you're listening to the dirtbags the.

"And you can't tell the story of your experience other people aren't going to hear that and they're not going to understand how they can change that experience for other people and so so being emily that through through the poem what was really important to me That fed kind of background on. It was what it's like to and I'm not saying that this is a unique experience to women but I'm speaking as a woman. It's definitely something that I am more familiar with that experience which which is a the the pressures that society puts around appearance the judgments that are made around appearance both For Women and for men within our society so basically what happens when people walk into a room and What are all of the assessments that are made about two based upon? And what you look like and I'm pretty tall person and have always been pretty tall and so I've had that challenge challenge of being taller than the men That I've worked with. And what does that look like. What does that mean? Especially when you add in being from in the south and the the the the drawl y'all's not the politeness and the the things like that what does that look like and so So talked a little bit about that and unfortunately I think that again. It's not necessarily something that that is limited to Women feel this way and midfield this way. I think that That we as women put just as many Eggs in that basket if you will and make a lot of harsh judgments off of what's and people look like at what women look like bank. We decide they're either going to be nicer. They're going to be cattier. They're going to be all. These different adjectives kids off of Off of that appearance in how intelligent you are in different things that come along that way and so the poem is is really kind of a conglomeration of all of that on the other side of it is. It's actually entitled It's an it's entitled show Pony and I am and part of that is a nod to what I just said that it's also I. I said that my father was a professor for twenty five years so so my dad passed away seven seven years ago. I'm the he was professor of Animal Science so you really really well known as a in the Horsfield and so we grew up with horses still race horses And and so there's a lot of of Reference and analogy to what it's like to be that person that is worked very hard By someone else and then put into a situation relation to kind of be shelved and off to the side and only let out whenever that person wants them to be out in only to be that face whenever it's appropriate and necessary for that owner to to trough that person out there. Let them do their their thing for their benefit for the for the owners benefit and then put them away and so What does that that really do for? Those people who are who are horses in those situations crazy it was it was amazing. It was absolutely amazing to be there. I'm so glad I was We this is the the second last question is is a doozy. We spring it on people but what are three pieces of media be it a book or movie movie or a TV show or a youtube video. Whatever that have shaped your thinking or influenced you or inspired you or that? You're applying right now and you could recommend to our listeners. Well I have to say this simply because Carl will just roll his is is and we'll just die but One of my one of my favorite books that I do like to talk about in addition to anything Beiber neighbor out because number one. I mean we're both from Texas. This is we both graduated from the University of Texas. And so we're basically saying person right so we're GonNa just let them be at three B. He so anything that comes in through there. But and then the the second one that I utilize a lot and I reference a lot is an creativity eke by by Ed capital and so If you haven't had the opportunity to to to read it or to listen to the audible version or whatever the case is I truly think there are so many great takeaways from that book Just from thinking thinking about thinking differently in how do we Used this world that we are truly creating every single day in in new and different ways and and inspire people to keep creating So there's some really great management and leadership techniques An insight in there and an inch truly Carl. Every other day with I would say you know if you were just because I couldn't get him to read it. So you guys are GonNa have to ask him mckinney. Seem anybody anybody who listening out there please. If you see earl hooker asking if he's got a creativity ink and and he's read it and then asking for his favorite quotes from it because I'm sure he'll just ah that that says that the big one for me. Let's see it's really. Oh that's a big doozy of a question. Didn't like you didn't even help. Help me like prepare for that. Now sister rattle these things off the top of my head I am hugely influenced by And and I know this is GonNa be really trite and I completely understand that. But I am hugely influenced by Shakespeare. Part of that is because he was A great commentator of what was happening in in his life and what he saw and You know I think that. Unfortunately we have have chat with changed how that's represented in in in our day and age. Now we took what was meant to be something that was performed in unseen. And we've made that be kids need to read this and that has distanced The experience of it. And so I think if you if you look at it and you really start to look at all of the historical. Um You're inferences and the you know the word play and and the descriptions the engagement and a lot of the political commentary that he He presented in his work is just so impressive to me and then to to take some of those pieces and apply them into our world today One of the things that I'd like to say that I believe that every single person is It's three things number one. Every single person is an educator because we're always taking information and we're trying to get other people understand it every single person is a marketer because you're taking commission you're trying to get people to like and to buy into what it is that you're doing. And then lastly every single person is a storyteller and so taking those experiences and and sharing them in a way that people remember and hold onto and I think that that That Shakespeare definitely represented all of that together together and and You know to break a big fan how we butchered we butcher the way Shakespeare's read to. That's one thing that I learned as an adult that I didn't realize I was in high school in particular is that is that if you read Shakespeare the way it's meant to be read it makes so much more sense exactly than than the way you read it when you're in class and I mean I realize your your kids and your whatever and yeah but but like when you get a professional shakespeare reader to read it it makes it makes so much more sense yes and when you add in the expressions and the you know the move mirror I mean you're not reading all the you know the stage directions or any of that kind of stuff like it's truly how this this as being representative now. I Remember Teaching Romeo and Juliet for the first time in my my kids were like rolling their eyes ahead. The majority Boys that year and they were just like this is going to be awful and I was like okay. Look you have not experienced spare the way that I'm going to do like Romeo and Juliet. This is not like some try little things like this is sex. This is drugs. This is gang activity like this is GonNa rock your world and they were like holy cow. I mean like we. You know which I'm sure you again definitely different times. Yeah Yeah we have win great to like we bill now. They're did all kinds of stuff. I mean they totally under like after that that that it's supposed to be so for sure for sure there and the last one I'll share and I'll I'll give it to you so you can put it in the show notes linked to it. It's the video that I just recently come across on founded on Youtube and it's called a like and it's an animated videos about nine minutes or so but I'm totally worth the the the the experience on it It's an amazing video about compliance. And what happens what we do as adults specifically working with kids. It's actually presented as a father and a son As a mom I can definitely relate to it of you know we spend a lot of our time telling our kids do it this way. Don't do that way and you know and and I remember I remember when my oldest was was really young and the very first time that I didn't answer his question I said I don't know I was really tired and I just snapped at him and I was like I don't I don't know and he stopped in his tracks and he like frozen. He looked at me and he was like. But you always know that answer and it was that moment when and my heart actually kinda paused. Because I realized no. I don't know the answer. And if he's just going to trust everything is say not think for things himself self like that's what I want is for him to have this imagination and him to have his own experiences and not. Just memorize the situations that I've I've given him or or you know gone off of what my experiences are and Fast forward my little boy is going to be eleven and a couple of weeks and he And so seeing this video kind of brought that home because it talks about this little boy who's going to school for the first time and he's trying to draw pictures doing all these different things and The AH the the teachers are just trying to get him to write his name in the right spot and so he brings his work back and shows his dad and his dad focuses on the corrections directions at his. His teacher is giving him rather than celebrating things like make him so happy. which is drawing this picture of him swinging with his dad? Add at the swing set that they pass every time that they walked to school and then as time goes on. He doesn't WanNa Swing with his dad anymore because his dad is. Is You know focused on that at the same time. There's a parallel story of as soon as his dad drops. The though little boy off then the dad goes to work and he's basically basically in that same situation where his work is being graded over. Is it conforming to the norms that his boss is wanting him to do rather than these creative elements and how he starts to just shut down and just goes into you know robotic movements Johnson and and responses and things like that and so it's really really powerful on. I really just really like to share that with you guys guys. How can people connect with you and learn more about you? Maybe you're websites yet so you can find online at Brianna. Hodges B. R. I. A.
