I'm curious what qualifies as very dark in your book because this book is is not lighthearted that the kingdom even without whole i guess. There's less physical brutality in In this book this this less violence. But the there's nothing may be more psychological abuse and psychological violence. But i mean hates is is the flip side of the coin to to love so i think is impossible to write about hate violence. Revenge without keeping one eye on love which is the case here. It's loss story. Turn bob dates up. i was asked to come up with a sort of a tagline for the novel and it was a two brothers and one woman.

There Were 30 Hurricanes And Tropical Storms That Hit The Atlantic In 2020
"Twenty hurricane season goes off the charts. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul here. with climate. the two thousand twenty atlantic hurricane season broke several records. And it's not just the record. Thirty named storms or twelve. Us landfalls the way storms behaved. That's got climate change experts talking a record. Ten storms rapidly intensified this season hurricane ada flared from tropical depression two major category four hurricane in just thirty six hours hurricane expert jeff. Master's tracks hurricane transfer yale climate connections. Hi jeff welcome to climate cast. Hi paul what stands out to you. The most from this record atlantic hurricane season you know it was the late season activity. We had two major hurricanes november. Ada and i oughta both reached category four hurricane status. In fact i was a five. The latest category five we've ever seen in the atlantic the fact that we're able to have in november a time when the hurricane seasons normally over catastrophic hurricanes that really speaks to the unusual level of activity that the twenty twenty atlantic hurricane season had put the overall season into context for us. How does this layout compared to previous atlantic hurricane seasons. This was more than double regular season so it was like. We're seeing twenty twenty and twenty twenty one altogether in one year jeff as we watch these hurricanes rapidly intensify so quickly. Now i'm wondering what are the measurable links to climate change there. In his ernie way to quantify the climate change component to this rapid intensification. There was a paper published last year that looked at rapid intensification during the period One thousand nine hundred eighty two two thousand nine and they used a climate model to study that and they found that using the climate model could not account for the rapid intensification without using human caused climate change and that makes a lot of sense because he does energy and when you've got a lot more heat energy available to a hurricane you're gonna see more rapid intensification. You mentioned the november storms. We saw those back to back. Category four and five hurricanes hit. How can that level of human and economic destruction be a driver of climate migration the main gdp driver for the hunters economy which is the patriots hula valley with about two million people that generates sixty percent of their gdp and they basically had their economic activity destroyed their so without any economy. And with a lot of your crops by the hurricane people don't have anywhere to go. Nothing they can do to generate an income and defeat themselves so we saw the back in nineteen ninety eight. When mitch hit we had hundreds of thousands of hondurans leave and seek future elsewhere. We seem like we're in this era of climate change enhanced super hurricanes and seasons. How do these impact those of us. Who don't live on the coast. I made way all pay higher insurance rates to fund the people who do live on the coast who are subject to these flooding events. In fact the national flood insurance program is more than twenty billion dollars in debt. Thanks to all the storms. We've seen in recent years and you know here in michigan where i live.

Canary's Royal origin story
"Just aim and make that the problem that needs solving what they tell us about how you re right because you actually had a pretty interesting off between. Okay. So we've talked about the thing I'm so sorry this is turned into your life by the way. I mean, look for those of you who are listening I mean you can probably guess that her brain and I. A friends and I'm friends also Hula and I'm friends with Shell like I. Love these guys and I just think the history is is really interesting which is why I'm bothering to draw it out in podcast, but you didn't just go straight from. Straight from post into into things, canary thinks had a previous incarnation. Really. Tell us about that. So. So it's actually interesting because leaving things I knew that we wanted I wanted to try to build a product company. and. My earlier hope was actually slightly more ambitious than that of multiple products ends vision of you just buildings and then split them off and they'll go become companies on their own. And one of the things you figure out as that everything you build actually takes a whole bunch of efforts to get it to market I. didn't know the product that we wanted to build yet. So lost left sense post roll already headed huggy up version of multi go and so he went it's today did on that and made it better and better and better and when I left I had like four or five ideas. One of them was a west of believe it or not. One of them was like, how can we detect badness on this thing? One of them were solving? Remote Password resets as lame as that sounds like the Susan unsolved from a short list of them. And my plan was to find customers could pay me to solve that problem for them with understanding that I could then resell that as a product and and so instead of raising money said I'd go to a customer and say, Hey, this is a big problem for you pay me the bullet for you and after I bullet for them might sell it to other people and so we we tried a few problems and then there's a division in the because one of the first customers that actually did stuff like this fall we built aversion Ibuka version of wikileaks for Ozier, Jazirah. I'm really surprised that you actually a named that because I was prepared to ask you a question about the work you did for I broadcast because this is not something you've really spoken about publicly before is it? No I haven't. Not for a huge secret, but but just because like like generally customer names adjust not what? You did a lot of work for Aljazeera for quite a bit. And I were interfacing with very senior people in that organization. So. So what happened was it started with a friend of mine who worked there said that they needed or they were interested in wikileaks prod program, and this was way early when Wiki leaks was the darling of journalism soap. So you took this is when wikileaks was cool. It wikileaks was cool and all the journalists wanted them and already aljazeera was saying they wanted own platform where people could leak stuff to them. So I spoke to them a little bit and we actually bought a really cool thing for them like like considering when it was. Tells you. It's age it was a Java applet that loads on the client machine. Would negatively tool and natively PGP. Of with the logic that the stuff you want to leak never leaves your machine without being encrypted with a key that's never shown on the Internet. So on your machine gets encrypted and by the time, it reaches the Sava it's natively toward. So the Selva doesn't know who sent it. You can just pull that stuff off the server end up PG peaks update later on and what year was this This was twenty, ten, late twenty ten. So. So it was super cool an and advantage for but. And while I was doing it the whole of Egypt solution habit and I was looking at the at. Aljazeera. Win when Egypt cell. And Up Ultra Zito got taken off the edge and at the time what what I figured out just by accident by being there was that datebook that security meant having a file and here was all that was covering a what was becoming a Adam Spring. But literally, they had zero reveal understanding of security of like everything you can think off flat network and also it's such an interesting business model right? Like like everybody hits the John Lewis but journalists literally have. Some journalists have all the interests of a full blown spies except they publish everything end. Actually vamping up in cotton wool isn't the solution because putting stuff out there is what they do. So, ended up speaking to the general a at the time and. I proposed a bunch of products that I said we could vote for them again with the view to these would be great products A. Outside. And we agreed on a contract where we could hold a bunch of things like how would you know you owned? If you were journalists how would you know that your devices will own stuff like? And the interesting thing is he said look you can do this as long as you come over here to Doha welcome at you. And a at the time it was just my wife and I we said Okay let's let's go do a Doha holiday and see how that works. It turned out to be super interesting. Of An and when I got there, I saw the breath of their problems. And they then went through management changes like a a new data general came in who turned out to be A. Royalty and he was more interested in locking stuff down and at that point I said to them hey, listen he does these projects that we're doing for you but I'll leave. And he said look, can you build also security team and so? Essentially, what I did at that point, and at that point things was just me. So, I had the ability to and I said okay. Hired their team that team up and and something? That's that's not spoken about in the Canadian origin story is after I bought that team and left them like at still periodically. Not so much consult for them as as like give advice to some of the executives like like the head of the new media division or the head of ED Technology Division. and would canetti pitched idea to them of dropping honeypots as as a way to get insight into the new. Satellite Networks and they didn't implement normally they they used to do everything I'd say, and they didn't over two visits and that's when we started to figure the hold on these people want to do it. They just not getting around to doing. And we need to make these. Yeah. The problem that needs solving is is making this thing so easy that people who want to will do it. End. Of the time see sewing them was super interesting because it gives you an interesting view again into the. House coming off ten years of. Ridiculously convoluted hack sense post right because in the position I ended up in like just get involved when it will cool hack. So cool customers and so you end up with these really cool technical problems. And now you walk in an actually your problem is solving. You'll analysts it. Yeah. Journalists in Morocco sharing.

"Away. Klein. I have a question for you about this whole nudity thing. It sounds great, like striking client. We're going to give you tickets or you get to go to France to go to the nude beach were doing that I thought were just given drugs like I want and I submit for their size has got so much better out here. Well, it sounds great. I would get cold feet right before we're supposed to go because I wouldn't know where to look at my supposed to stare at people Do they want me to look at their breasts? How does it work? Well, that's why the mask right now is the perfect time because your ass eating grin will be your muse. You hide your shame, and at the same time you reveal your shame. I will say I didn't get the opportunity to go to France once in college, and I sat on the beach and I had in my regular bathing suit. I looked to my right and I saw mother and her child just arrive at the beach at the same time, and then she took her shirt off. No bra. Start laying out playing with her two year old and I was like a whole new look like it was a moment that I was like, Whoa, and there is that you don't know where to look for it, But I will say you get over it pretty soon. It's great. Good to know just wanted to throw in one more story for you an important news updates since you are since we're so active in the Cuban community, an 11 year old girl has just set a world record for solving 30 Rubik's cubes one handed while Hula hooping. Striker. There's your next challenge, buddy. Yeah, took her about an hour. So that's your time to beat striker And she said that it was a great record for her to set because she has limited mobility in one of her hands, And she did. How many cubes while hooping, So one handed 30 cubes in one hour while Hula hooping. I'll bet you that I could hold you. Here we go because you couldn't keep in mind. There's what you claimed on the show a few weeks ago, I could do one side of one cube in 20 seconds and you failed three different times could not do that was I got it in 30. Seconds, not 20. This girl is missing a hand or something, and she was able to do ah, out 30 cubes with a hula hoop. That's so much more impressive. Do you think I could hula Hoop? For 26 solve one side of a cube with as much time as I need. If the hoop falls, I fail zero chance. I will take that bet happily. So you know what you can have both hands on the Cuban takes much time. But you have to be who'll open the entire time that I just say this live on there. Now that I'm thinking about it. I don't think you can treat moving by, literally. Yeah, I don't think you could do either of those individually. Yeah, I can hope Aiken. Allie. I could move my hips really Well, client yes. Hula hooping while solving one side of a room. Excuse girl did 30 and she's okay. I'll bet you if you give me five tries that I can do one side of a Rubik's cube while who opened one side while who? Yes. And I get long as the hoop is going. I can keep twisting and turning. I'll take the bet. Zero chance you could do that. Zero with no time constraint whatsoever. How about next next Friday? I see. Good practice was really we're going to get a life. You need that much.
Leslie Blodgett, former CEO and founder, bareMinerals

This is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen today Leslie Logic joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is a trail blazer of the beauty industry leslie founded bare minerals, which she grew into a global empire by tapping into the power of marketing and community. And in two thousand ten, she saito acquired it for almost two billion dollars while her new best selling book. Pretty good advice. Give some pretty great advice and is available now leslie were except to have you welcomed skin from the couch. Thank you so much for having me looking forward to hanging with you guys. We have been very excited to do this. We met Leslie at a conference that we were at about almost two years ago year and a half ago we. Didn't know who it was like we knew her name, but we didn't know that she was the Leslie blodget. We just saw this like friendly looking who was wearing this very cool hat and standing outside getting coffee and she came up to us in and you're a huge fan of the scam and when we realized it was you I think we both like didn't even know what to. stadio. So I think it goes to show like you have such a friendly personality and. That makes everyone feel comfortable in talking to you and is also harshly how you are able to talk yourself into any room in in your early days of your career, which we're GONNA get into. So let's start off with our standard first question, which is Skim your resume for us our. Newspaper Out McDonnell's what did you do at McDonalds? Everything. I started with like cleaning toilets and sweeping the parking lot and then moved up to making burgers it Max then at fit. Two years of fit graduated in turned beauty companies. Always wore is shadow since I'm little kid went to work in the industry or selling makeup behind the counter spritzing fragrance bloomingdales in New York City in macy's met my husband at macy's while I was working behind. The counter is part of my resume I know it's a career thing is he's he's important. Did he keep coming back or did he like ask you on a date while you were working at the counter? All right. So I worked in macy's and part time because I was going to school and his girlfriend who's really cute. Girlfriend had the same shifts that I did like. He they lived in Brooklyn together and he would come in. So she didn't have to take the subway by herself at nights. and. That's how we met. We I I never knew the story Oh my God. So he would he would come. He was so sweet I kept asking do you have a brother friend and he did hook me up with friend once that didn't work out but it wasn't until they broke up a couple of years. Later he got a number and called me so what I didn't break any relationship. Okay. That's a good story though. Okay. So keep keep going macy's macy's then got a job at Halston Orelon you guys probably don't know a Halston, the fashion design end ud line I worked there for a little while then the big job was working at Max factor and then we were acquired by Revlon and moved to La? The company Max factor acquired by PNG and moved to Hunt Valley Maryland Maryland Baltimore had a baby in Maryland that was the best part. Of Maryland then we moved back to la because Keith wasn't digging Maryland so much whatever, and then he became the state Dad didn't have a career anymore after that I ended up being the breadwinner starting the kid was born and then were worked neutrogena. And then San Francisco in here we are what is something that people can't Google about you that we should now. Aren't. So here's the thing to that I. Don't have a Wikipedia page. My team for years wanted me to build one, but I had this issue with being. Out there. So I don't know what's out there and I'm very uncomfortable with what's out there. So what would people not know about me? That I can play the harmonica and hula-hoop at the same time. Did you do that growing up? On hula-hoop for sure the Harmonica, I learned as an adult. So I have a hula-hoop now as an adult that I use regularly. So then I just combined two gifts that I have. You write about a quote kind of stuck out at me. The quotas get desperate I wanna dig into what that means because I think you know when in reading about your story like we've gotten to know you a little bit over the last year or so and I knew the high level part of your story. But in researching for this, it don't think I really could appreciate her understood how you really got your foot in the door and so I want to understand what get desperate meant for you. Yeah I think for me. I always had to work hard to get noticed it in everything I did and I think number one is my parents were divorced when I was nine and we were left with her mom not that there was a bad vanishes that she was the the strict one the tough one. So I was always like driven to please her with I think a lot of kids have that too. She was never quite one hundred percent. Happy. So I was always trying to please her. So I was always going above and beyond to get the grades and to get on the teams and that type of thing because I wasn't. We didn't have a ton of money growing up I had to be creative. So by the time I went to two years of college and I. My first two years. It was rough because it was my first time being outside of my mother's like grip. So kind of had a little bit too much fun when I realized that I had to. GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. My mother helped me figure out what my passion was. I UNI but couldn't get in to fit I couldn't get a job behind the beauty counter, which is what I need to do to get into the cosmetic program and I had to so learned that when I'm desperate when I can't seem to find my way is when I get most creative by when I'm at the bottom feeling down instead of being depressed for long periods of time I just started thinking what would I do in little steps to get there the story I have in The book is about Bloomingdale's I. wanted to work there really did but they would not give me the time of day because I had no experience on mcadoo, you have it if you don't get it the only solution to that was to just be in their face and I thought without being too annoying I'm GonNa go to the buying office. I'm going to go there every day every morning I know when they come in because the first time I went and it was a very narrow hallway. And I would smile and they would have to brush past. We had to literally touch audience for them to get by, and they just saw me every day and I think you don't persist Internet way just. So dedicated to your personal 'cause I had no choice for sleeping on couches I didn't have a place to live. They said. Why don't you come in? We'll find something
How The Other House We Considered Came Back Around
"And it's kind of a good news bad news situation with being back a good news is that we're back. We've got a full upset for today. The bad news is that I think we might have been a little bit naive and presuming this would be the start of a normal fall podcasting season John and Jerry of the past we're like, Oh, I'm sure they'll be back in school I hope they'll be back in school that was when cases were trending different way than trending. Now I think we were hopeful probably a little bit naive that this would be start a fairly normal school semester for our kids but obviously, I'm sure a lot of you guys are going through the same thing throughout the country in the world. That like it's not, it's not going to be enormous start to school. I know some people are going in person some people are doing part time. Our kids are doing virtual learning here at home, and so the next few months are not looking the way that we expected them to I mean I guess that's just twenty twenty right? That is a sentence everyone listening I can say like I didn't picture my August. And September looking like this there is a meme. Put it in the show notes it's about cheese and it basically shows like a beautiful cheese board and bree topped and fruit, and that's January you have runs through January February march April may and it's like someone gradually looking more like chaotic just like a celebrity who's going from like their Glam, red carpet, all the way to being frazzled and just screaming into the void. Opposite of glow up. This is cheese demonstrating and it goes from like a beautiful breed topped and fruit to like someone eating a chunk of cheese right from like the Hong. Like neighbors was not slicing going on and then it ends with leg one slice of American cheese in the plastic grab the craft rap cheese. That is your August and September for sure everyone we talked to you feels like they're going through this pivots with work pits with life pivots with family. It's not just the schooling thing that's just one of the left turn that's going on right now we really don't need to detail for everyone why this year's gotten complicated you guys all get it. So we just when we Looked at everything decided that the podcast something that we probably need to put a pin in for a little while if nothing else just because of the logistics of making it while our kids are here doing their virtual learning because a quiet house has been in short order lately. Yes we don't WanNa make any promises right now about wind will be back with the podcast because if we're taking one lesson right now from this year is that you can't predict what's going to happen anyways I'm sorry for the bad news. Because you guys know we love making this podcast and it pains us to put it on sort of a question mark hiatus but we just figure. That's the best thing right now for us but we said it was a good news bad news situation I feel like the good news of this is instead of just telling you on instagram or the blog like, hey, we can't get back to the podcast. Instead we have a bunch of updates. We're going to give you a robust full episode right now to kind of. Catch you up with everything that's been happening something that happened when we were on a break that I got so many DMZ about everyone was like we need to hear about this. There's also a very exciting thing that happened in the House that we're going to talk about in fact, maybe I should segue into it like John Master segue man I wouldn't call that a masterful. SEGUE. Segue when I said Segue man it made me think of the picture of you on the SEGUE which I'll put in the show notes. John Looks what in the show notes because I feel like at this point, it's really great from probably ten years ago, and it's just John Standing on a segue. If anybody sees these show, not vacuum and gonNA wonder what this episode was about and I will say important things that I had to update people on and means lots of memes. But what we're going to talk about is a project actually just. Wrapped up here at our House I. Think if you've followed our blog the last few months over the summer, you've seen pretty much every room in this house so far I think the only thing left is the bathroom, and if we have our act together, we will have a post on it this week. So you will have officially seen every room in the house by Wednesday when you have six rooms eight goes. Really Fun. It's like much more settled feeling than we expected but something outside took forever to come together while and the funny thing is it should have been a pretty straightforward thing. The thing was a fence. We knew we were in ads fencing to our yard at some point just to give us a little bit more separation from our neighbors we learn from our time at our beach, house in Cape Charles? That when you're on these small lots a fairly dense neighborhood that it's nice to do some sort of. Like privacy fencing, just to make the yard field a little bit more like intimate in some spots. So like we wanted some fence between our neighbor directly to our side, you know the one that's the house under construction that you might be able to hear us we record. Yeah. Sometimes they pop in on the podcast and it sounds a little something like this wait I'll do a nail gun who the Hula Jerry is gunning for an outtake here I can tell that was abd core strength that came from the belly. How Neil feels well, and in addition to the one on the side between the construction were also eventually going to do something outside our bedroom to create like a little private courtyard area off of our bedroom. So we knew there were some things we're going to do at some point we weren't in a big rush, but we knew we wanted that fence between us and the construction pretty quickly. We actually got the ball rolling on that as soon as we got here like maybe the second day we were in Florida, I, feel like I needed disclaimer. To this, a lot of it has to do with the culture of Your neighborhood in Cape Charles it was very common. There was a certain height that was allowed lots of people. Did It neighbors went in on it together this neighborhood is similar. So we actually spoke with the builder who's building that House next door, and we're going in on this fence together. So I thought Ooh, we got this ball rolling right away. When we landed here, we've got the builder in on it like we're really going to roll on this fence what was supposed to But I, guess there's actually a big fence material shortage I. Don't know if it's related to the corona virus or not, but they had a lot of trouble having things in stock. So kept getting pushed back and pushed back in this thing that we thought we were going to have taken care of by like early June took like two and a half months we didn't get it until just last week. So the very beginning of August and really please this is not like tiny violin. Dog was just a surprise. It's just funny because they were like, yeah three weeks don't worry about it and

What cloud are you on? I'm trying to figure out if this one up here. It looks like a panda wearing a two. Or a looping platypus definitely a Hula hooping platypus. Check out that way, is it just me or does that look like a surfer about to take on a massive wave? I don't know I think it just looks of like A. Piece of Ham stuck to a refrigerator the.

Round of to? Scientific game show that separates the house from though what's now before we begin today's round. Let's review where we left off yesterday. We gave you three scientific statements about Eagles and challenged. You guess which one was the one true well, was it a golden eagles enjoyed covering themselves with? Or was it be the wings of Great Nicobar Serpent Eagles so big? They're often mistaken for small planes, or was it see the world's largest Eagle's nest was about twenty feet, deep or the size of five seven year olds, and to answer yesterday's question joining us by phone. It's led dory from Philadelphia Dory. What's the well I'm Andy and My name is Dorrie in I'm from Philadelphia. I am eight years old. My while in the world is that the biggest. Nonni Eagle, mass, which is in Florida, is nine feet, wide and twenty feet deep. It's really enormous. Thank you. I love your show. For dinner him there you have it wears. You guessed the answer. See that the largest eagle's nest ever was twenty feet deep. You found the winning. Wow, congratulations!

You weren't that far off. There are several species of birds that do actually like covering themselves and aunts. This process is called. Anti and scientists aren't quite sure why it happens.

Free Yourself From Conflict
"Thanks for joining today's Webinar, an optimal outcomes are host. Today is the founder and CEO. Alignment Strategies Group the near based consulting firm that advises CEOS in their executive teams on how to optimize organizational health and growth. She's the author of optimal outcomes for yourself from conflict at work at home in life, which was selected as the Financial Times Book of the month Jennifer is A. A keynote speaker at fortune, five hundred companies public institutions in innovative fast-growing startups, where she inspires audiences of all kinds including those Google Harvard in tax, and in her popular course at university, a former counter-terrorism research fellow with the US Department of Homeland Security, she is a graduate of Tufts. University and holds a PhD in social organizational psychology from Columbia. Please welcome Dr Jennifer Goldman wetzlar. These are trying times that we're in. We are in the midst right now. Two months into the global pandemic. Of Corona virus and we're facing a big tough global problem. The likes of which most of us have never seen in our lifetimes. I've spent my career studying and working with incredibly tough problems, none on this scale, but tough problems nonetheless. Typically the tougher the problem, the more likely it is to capture my interest, and the more likely I am to be helpful. This has been true for me since I was A. So I didn't want to solve just one or two sides of the Rubik's Cube I wanted to solve all six sides while Hula hooping. and. That's why today we're going to be talking about a tough problem of type of problem conflict. That comes back. No matter how many times you people have tried to resolve it. Will be talking about recurring conflicts. And what to do when your efforts to resolve those conflicts fail. So in a minute I'm going to be asking you to think of a conflict situation. You know about that. You can apply your situation well, so you can apply these practices to that situation. But I. WanNa give you an introduction to this work. In Nineteen, seventy, three one of my mentors, Dr Morton Deutsch widely considered father of conflict resolution, wrote a book called the resolution of conflict and in it he detailed research that he and his colleagues had done, which basically showed that conflict lead to more conflict and cooperation leads to more cooperation. When I learned that all I can think was well if that's true, how do we get out of this conflict loop? And how do we get on to the cooperation loop? Well I've now spent the last thirteen years trying to answer those questions and the answers are in the book that I've written optimal outcomes that we're talking about today. My research began with a fellowship from the US Department of Homeland Security in two thousand and two, and since then in my role as CEO and founder of Alignment Strategies Group I've worked with. Leaders. All kinds of different organizations from innovative fast-growing startups to Fortune five hundred companies to academic institutions to global nonprofits. And what I've done is helped them by using the optimal outcomes method to address the most challenging situations that they have faced. And I'd like to bring some of that work here for you today, so I'll be talking about a specific clans situation throughout today's Webinar. But I also want this presentation to be highly relevant to you so I'd like to take a moment now to ask you to think of a situation that you know about. It could be one from your own life, or it could be one that you're helping other people with, or it could be one that you know about simply from watching the news. And I'd like to ask you to answer two questions. What who first of all you're thinking about a conflict situation, but it may be one that you don't even necessarily think about as quote unquote conflict. It may be something that simply recurs over and over again. No matter how many times you or other people have tried to resolve, it could be the daily fight with your spouse about the dishes in the sink, or it could be how to track down that colleague. That's always been hard to reach a now that you're working remotely is even more difficult to find. Get the answers that you meet, or it could be about politics and elections in presidential elections, and how to have conversations about those without getting caught in a cycle of frustration with friends and colleagues and family.
Why Police Could Still Be Using Facial Recognition, Despite Big Exits
"We've seen. The biggest company is making changes in response to protest over the killing of George Floyd. They've announced massive donations to racial justice. Initiatives held town halls in their own companies and introduce new diversity and inclusion policies among those commitments Microsoft Amazon. IBM and others have said they're no longer selling facial recognition technology to law enforcement, and they've called on Congress to institute national regulations to govern its use. But I reporter. Jerry Council says that might not spell. The end of police use official recognition tech, and he joins us now to explain jared thanks so much for being with us. Forever Man. All right, let's from the beginning. How does law enforcement use facial recognition technology right now? Why is it so controversial so I'll start with the second part I this. This technology has been around for years, and it's not just us by law enforcement. It's used in airports and retail establishments stadiums on and so forth, but the reason it's so controversial is there's really two reasons one has to do with the accuracy of these systems you know these systems for the most part have a tougher time identifying darker skinned people and women than they do. white males. Males essentially the other reason has to do with privacy. Even if these systems are ninety nine point nine percent accurate, some people were concerned that they're being used to survey them and to uncover information about them. That otherwise may not have been known so those are those are the two reasons why this technology is so controversial I'd say in recent years a lot of law enforcement agencies have turned to this technology to help with investigations, so if someone commits a robbery or crime in public somewhere in there are cameras that got footage of the perpetrator, then they. They would use the technology to essentially take an image of person and compared with the database of suspects that they have to essentially fight crime. Right and we've obviously had that going on for a long time. We have cameras that pick people up. And then they go through databases of potential suspects people that have committed crimes in the past, and they try to match those faces. How is this technology different from that kind of eyewitness matching in the lineup? Yeah, yeah, yeah, so technology allows it that process to happen a lot quicker so if you are. are able to get a again. An image of someone you can just run it through a database of of suspects and get results in minutes. The other aspect about the technology is that it's also being used to not just search databases, but the really the entire Internet there's a there's a company out there called clearview that sees itself as a as a search engine for faces, so if the police were using this technology upload of face of it could be a suspect, or it could even be a witness to a crime, they can essentially find. Find out who that person is based on social media, posed and other upload, so that's new and different about it, the the risk of the technology and again this is one of the main reasons. It's come under such criticism in recent years is that let's say a law. Enforcement agencies is using it, and they are trying to figure out the suspect Hula suspect is a in a robbery or some other crime. They use technology and IT pulls up potential matches for that suspect if it's not accurate if it's not if it doesn't do well at making those. Those matches for for faces that are that are darker, skinned or for women. There's a chance that police go after the wrong person, and it even goes beyond that it's not just the police agencies that use it, but there are stadiums I'd use it, you know. Retailers say we don't want this person who has been accused of shoplifting before to come back into our stores. You know if these technologies send an alert that says hey, you know, look out for this person. He or she is on our watch list and ends up being a wrong person you. You know that could that could cause a lot of headache in a lot of you know undue harm for whoever the whoever that person is. Each spoke about clear view and the work that they do. We've now seeing big companies that are are household names. Amazon Microsoft IBM come out and say that they are not going to allow police forces to Hughes facial recognition technology anymore at least for a moratorium at least for a time your reporting seems indicate that might make a big difference in terms of police use of facial recognition technology. Why is that? That yeah, yeah, the big players from Amazon. Microsoft of IBM they all announced that they're pulling back from the market. The only thing about it is is that they're big names in the facial recognition market, but they're not the biggest players per se and the market is made up of other companies including a whole range of startups that focus on this technology, so with the big tech players pulling back. There are still going to be other providers out there. That are selling this technology to police departments. They have no plans to pullback. They see this as. Their bread and butter. If you will you know despite some of the concerns around the technology, they feel that their technology. Does a lot of good. They say that it helps with investigations to find suspects quicker than otherwise might be possible. They also say that their technology is is used to help. Find Missing exploited children. A lot of them do want regulations, but they don't see any reason. Pull back right now because they feel that their services are are essential, and that there is still a market for it, so Microsoft an Amazon are calling on Congress to develop clear national laws about who can use facial recognition technology and how they're using it. Is there any kind of legislation already in the pipeline? So at the federal level, not so much. Last week the House of Representatives introduced a police reform bill that provides or at least touches on a lot of aspects of policing the country, but there was a mentioned in there about facial recognition, and essentially said federal law enforcement officers think you know FBI, and so on and so forth they had. They're not allowed to use facial recognition software on body camera footage without. Without a judge's warrant again that bill was not all about facial recognition. It was just a small part of it, but that's all. That's taking place at the federal level, and there are initiatives around the country and states and municipalities. Some them have sought to ban or put a moratorium on the technology by police agencies. At least for the time being, there have been other. Bills including one in Washington. That seek to regulate the use of the technology, so there's there's really kind of efforts happening across the country in various fashions, but at the at the federal level there hasn't been anything there and just add to that I think that actually was was part of the reason why a lot of these these large companies from Microsoft and Amazon why they why they took A. A step back. They saw the recent police reform bill and say hey, y'all congress. If you're looking at doing something, we're going to wait for you to address the whole issue. You know instead back until then as we wait for legislation on facial recognition software specifically, we're also hearing calls to defend the police. Is that something that could have an impact on this market? Oh Yeah for sure. Yeah, we we. We are seeing a lot of those calls which again just to be clear about not eliminating police departments. At least that's not what everyone wants. It's more so diverting resources and funds away from policing in changing how it operates as those calls and increase obviously in the wake of the George Floyd protests. A lot of police departments may be forced to look at what they're spending their money on, and some of the most controversial elements of what they're spending. Their money on could be the first to go, so you know. I spoke to a fellow at the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard, and she mentioned that these protests are really putting a lot of public pressure on police departments, and some of them, not all of them, but some of them may say this is just not worth it right now, you know. Know where we're going to wait and step back until there are rules of the road for how to use this technology so again. This is by no means to say that police are still going to be interested in it. They're there still are a lot of them are still using it a lot of facial recognition companies still have business in the US. But some believe that that that these calls the defunding police could change that calculation. Our reporter jared. Council thanks so much for joining us right, thank you.
"hula" Discussed on Amanpour
"Me and it's about what happened in Minneapolis. It's a picture an actual news picture. And you've juxtaposed with the famous delacour painting. The showed. Liberty and it's really powerful, because it just shows the body language how you can. have these political and autistic themes that transcend centuries and transcend mediums from painting a picture, and I know that you are sitting in your studio there in front of one of one of your own paintings, and it's called late America to and I want to i. want you to describe when you painted in what it means. It's very powerful with the mother holding the child wrapped in the American flag. A painting I did a couple of months ago. Probably at the start of. News of the pandemic. Coupled with a lot of the continuing anxiety, fears etcetera that we've been facing. Both on A. Environmental level and on a political level etcetera. and. I just. Found myself wondering. What could I possibly say? To a child. At that edge of of nothingness, which is what we seem to be hurtling towards I I don't want to be over dramatic about it, but I think there's an underlying. Current that we live in a a kind of flow towards. True Dystopia and And, so you know it's like trying just trying to. Put myself in that place and. I think. A mother's embraces. Still holds or should hold any way as a powerful symbol of. Of Care of nurturing as well as vulnerability in yourself and so I, chose a mother embracing the child as opposed to a man. And then another colossal woman you painted. Your latest is American Hula and that is also I mean it's very full of energy, and it's kind of I think you've described it, or it's being described as sort of had taken on the proportions of Goya's Colossus and I just wanted you to describe it what you were thinking the energy and how you? Came to that particular figure after trying several different. A by guest, bodily forms for this work. Well I think. Your viewers are gonNA find out that. At least this artist doesn't actually know what they're doing while. They're doing what they're doing so. I I started this painting American Hula. Not as a painting of a woman with a hula-hoop, but a as another woman dancing and I started with the optimism and enthusiasm and a sense of. pleasure sense of joy. And I painted her up to a point where I began to feel that something was missing. So I, gave her a friend. I introduced the woman with a hula-hoop. I is a sketch and when the hula-hoop woman came in. The dancing woman no longer fell necessary. Y I was following an intuitive. Thread and why that would make sense to me I. Don't actually know, but I I have learned over the years to recognize in my process that if something in the painting stops talking to you, it's because it doesn't belong there. And so. Go ahead. Sorry, I it's also very big. It's almost I mean if you look at it, is it's it's? It's almost like the dominance of the human spirit and I don't know whether that motivation you because you've done it right now in the midst and at the height of this pandemic. Is Monumental I mean the paintings not gigantic. It's six feet, tall or some you. She's a good size, but she's not. Know there's no other reference to make her feel as monumental she actually. But but she. She definitely feels large, she feels. Like she's moving very slowly very much like I would imagine a giant walking through the landscape is. And and so she takes on the the mass the way the physicality of of. All of the turbulence that. was leading up to that and. But also there there's this contradiction because she's Hula Hooping, which is supposed to be a child's game. To be playful. Et CETERA and yet it doesn't feel that why. Thank God. It's the first time. I it's not the first time you've done this kind of work. In Times of trauma, one of your most I suppose. Controversial pieces was called tumbling woman, and you did it to.
Sung Kang reveals the fight to make 'Better Luck Tomorrow'
"Sung king you know him as the street racers. Hans Solo. I love that Han Solo in the fast and furious movies. And you can argue that. Seng's portrayal of Han the impossibly cool mentor of Tokyo drift. A member of the core fast and furious family made the franchise the most surprising and successful blockbuster series in Hollywood history. I would definitely make the argument so we are very lucky to have the chance to speak with Song. Today on Asian enough. Thank you for being here with us forever me we want to start off by addressing the big news. Which is you are coming back to the fast and furious franchise for the upcoming fast and furious. Nine which is huge for those of us who obsessively watched these movies because we know than Han. Your character has been gone for a couple of movies and in fact has one of the most tremendous most unpredictable. Arc's I feel like in movie history in that you know Tokyo drift. Which was the third movie in. The fast and furious franchise is the one that you originated this character. And we'd love to hear from you. What has your relationship with Han. Been like over these years. It's a love hate relationship. The hate is a strong word for it. I think it's maybe love and difficult is what it is because I'll never dismiss what the fast and furious and with the Han characters done for my career and my family and opened the Hollywood doors the first time I you know Justin and I worked on festive fears like we would just literally walk around the production office and then go into his office and start like laughing. Because can all these chairs the free snapple into the free water right those little things that we really appreciate it. Because when we're shooting tomorrow we had nothing we had a fold out table with five sticks of. Wrigley's spearmint gum spread out and a box of cold intimate donuts breakfast. That was our craft service and better luck tomorrow. Of course was the two thousand two indie film about over achieving Asian American teens who flipped the Model Minority Myth on its head when they start doing crimes so better luck. Tomorrow was Justin. Lin's first solo feature recode to feature call shopping things with Quinton leave and there were still students at Ucla. And then I heard that this young filmmaker out of UCLA was making an Asian American film. But I had already worked on a couple of Asian of American films that never finished and it was kind of a fiasco and felt like yeah. It's great to be part of this movement but we're not going to be able to compete with because you can't even finish the movie and when I came back to La. I was so disenchanted anytime I heard about another Asian American filmmaker instantly said this is probably not a good idea. That was already probably a few like maybe five six years in right. I mean I've been already a journeyman into business. You know and the auditions that I would get are the roles that would be a waiter or Yakuza and I felt like maybe the timing was rights. And this idea of being an actor in Hollywood is not GonNa Happen. Right and then I got a couple of phone calls from some aspiring producer. Asian American producers. And they said Hey. There's this guy named Justin Lin. He's a ucla and he's doing this. Asian American film. You should take a look at the script and you should like audition for it now and then two more friends call and say hey. You should really take a look at the script so Justin I actually met at. Danny's on Wilshire and western Koreatown. We met to talk about the script right and talk about the role and stuff like that and at that time. I think Hon- was written as a Filipino character. That drove a hundred civic here like a shaved head. Wow he was really perpetuating kind of like this. You know southern Kelly J. JD M. car culture kind of thug. And I'm from Georgia so I don't identify with I'm into muscle and you know my role models were like James Dean. Paul Newman John Wayne. If you will right and so this thing did not resonate so when I sat down with just and I said Hey I can I addition for Ben. The main character for best. I better tomorrow and just in being the the the patient older brother if you will and he would make a great poker player because slow played it and he's like why not. Let's see so. I went at like three times to read for Ban and knowing the whole time. I'm way too old looking. I don't fit the VIBE and I said to myself if this dude cast me it's movies gonNA suck and compromise vision. So after the third edition called me and said. Hey Man it's not gonNa work out but I would still love free to play on. I was like this is a guy that I would go to paddle with one last shot. Because if it doesn't work out I probably have to go and find a real job and it was so challenging because we had the whole budget in place but then the investors had asked Justin to change all the rules to Caucasian and Justin being. Who is now not GONNA do it? And he started putting the equipment on his credit card but as soon as the credit card companies. No you're maxing it out. They basically linked to the other companies. And then they'll hold your credit card so we're screwed and then I had worked at this restaurant in Beverley hills this cream barbecue place called Hula okay. That is no longer and we shot for a day and then justice said the money's not coming in so we probably have to shut this down and I went to work and I was so depressed right and I'm a server. They're left of a smile. I was so bummed and this is where I feel like everything happens for a reason. Like I don't necessarily subscribe to all these myths and stuff as some Guardian Angel but if if there is such thing that night she showed up and by that you mean John Wong and her husband. Jeffrey go founders of the Cherry Sky Films Production Company. They had been coming into the restaurant for a couple years and there was the first time they saw me not smiling and that kind of goofing off and she said what's wrong way so sadness explain the situation and she said can. I take a look at the script as I have in my car. She goes Why don't you in the director come by the office? Like the talk we went in there spoke for about an hour and then she wrote us a fifty thousand dollar check. Wow there's something like so mythic about this whole story but isn't that the keep a fifty thousand not enough to finish this movie right and so then we're stock and just kind of freaking out and the only person he knows that really has money. Is this guy named Mc Hammer right and how does he know MC Hammer so justin used to work at the Japanese? American museum is to be editor for the downtown Japanese-american Museum and so he was in plans of shooting tomorrow. And at that time the cannon xl one three chip consumer camera was coming out. And if you guys are aware if your techies like big deal so that was the first option of going digital post to film and suggests that went down. I think there was a convention down there to look at the new cameras coming out and Hera was there so hammer's standing next to a kid. You know anything about this camera. And he kind of helps them out and he goes. So what do you WanNa do this well? One day I hope to be a director. They Kinda you know. Talk a little bit and hammered being who is gave him his phone number and said hey you ever need anything. Give call so fast forward. The money's not happening just freaking out the credit cards frozen. I think he had the the phone number like pin to his wall. For you know for Sake right is that what the hell he calls. Hammer Hammer picks up. What's up is okay. Do you remember me Zig. Know what do you want? Here's the situation he goes. Hey it's not hammer time anymore. I can't just be funding these things. But here's ten grand. Do what you gotta do but you know I don't I don't need it back but here it is so if you go and watch. Tokyo drift anytime. There's a Tokyo City. Scene is hammer

"Always had an interesting relationship with the concept of a Church Synagogue Temple. What have you growing up? My Dad and I only attended a synagogue. Maybe once a year for young poor the holiest of Jewish holidays during which you fast and ask God for forgiveness for all your wrong-doings in the past year as a kid. I was confused. Why everyone at the temple was reciting the same prayer. I figured each would talk to. God confessed their sins and promised to do better. But everyone read the same thing from the same book in the same tone. And the next day you eat again and supposedly all is forgiven. It felt very impersonal. When I was thirteen my family and I moved from our small town in Israel where the synagogue was tiny to San Francisco where I was to have my Bar Mitzvah in the synagogue. Was this massive cathedral with Long Island. Massive Altar with pews for days by that age. I had already told my father. I don't buy into the whole organized religion concept so we made a deal that if I just do this bar Mitzvah thing for him then they'll never make me go to pull again on the day of my Bar Mitzvah. The double doors open to the temple and I saw all the men in the pews on the right side and all the women behind a dividing wall in the pews on the left side all the same prayer and I had this vision of a massive brain hanging below the tall ceilings with hundreds of tubes running from the big brain plugging into every person's head. It was a visual of the same concept. I had about three years prior. That religion lacked individuality or personal relationship with God since that was also the year we moved to the US. And I found out about all these other world religions all carrying a similar message but constantly fighting about which one is right or superior later in life I discovered unity. Church UNITARIAN universalism centers for spiritual living. And I'll never forget. Reverend Sky at unity of Hawaii explained what they believe. You know how churches have stained glass windows like massive tiffany lamps and while each religion stained glass window depict symbols relevant to their respective faith. Unity Church he explained celebrates the one light that shines behind those windows. Unity is about the light not windows or the structures onto which the light shines. And there's only one son the same light all over the world. It reminds me of the Gospel of Thomas. The Kingdom of God is inside you and all around you not in mansions of wood and stone split a piece of wood and God. Is there lift a stone and you will find God? This beautifully expresses what I had felt as a child while many people make their church the cornerstone of their faith instead of God. This almost implies the church itself is unnecessary to have a relationship with God who is apparently and everything and everyone. I understand that the church is a business and its business is to stay in business and many churches do amazing work in the world and even it serves no other purpose than space for community and congregation. It can be a beautiful thing but the same reason that draws many people to Church every Sunday the hymns music the singing is the reason. I'm not a big fan myself. Give me a sermon any day. Let me meditate on in silence is more my style but I get it heck. My best friend is in Church's choir and probably always will be so. I understand the appeal. Even if it's not for me having said that as you probably know. I am often invited to deliver the sermon at various churches. And sometimes I'm even asked what songs I want their choir to perform or sing. Some of these places go all out and have full on bands anyway. There's one song I once heard a friend saying at Reverend Skies Church in Hawaii that has always resonated with me and no. I'm not going to sing it. But here are the lyrics to it which might appeal to you as they do to me. There is one power invisible and yet you see it everywhere. And every day it's one power it's indescribable and yet you speak of it with every word you say. It's mysterious until you know the truth. It's as simple as the love inside of you. You can call it God call it. Spirit College Jesus call it lowered call it by Hula Angel's Wings or Heaven Store but whatever name you give it it's all one power. Can't you see whatever name you give it? It's the power of the love in you and me. We speak so many languages. We have different clothing. Different colors different names but different is only dangerous. If we forget that in our hearts we're all the same we will remember. Once we close our eyes to see that such distances were never meant to be so call it God call it spirit call. Jesus call it Lord call it Woulda Bajwa Husham or Heaven's door it's Muhammed. It's your mind it's
