Insider trading issues raised after Kodak's stock gets hot
"Shares of Kodak taking another leg lower today as the drama around the company Continues Swirl. The latest twist. Kodak. Significantly up to its lobbying spending before being awarded seven hundred and sixty five million dollar government loan according to Reuters Kodak Spent Eight hundred seventy thousand dollars in lobbying efforts between April and June. Compare that to less than five thousand dollars it spent in Q. One of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred now as. We've been reporting here on fast money. The rise in Kodak's years before news officially broke of that government loans, concerns of insider trading and an SEC broke the company's earnings call last night Kodak CEO said, he supports the government's decision to put the loan on hold until I'd investigation is complete. Karen you have puts in this stock. What is remarkable is that it's nowhere near the level it was trading at prior to the win the loan was announced. Right. Five hundred percent more than that. It's interesting to me that that's a great return on those lobbying dollars, right? I mean eight, hundred, thousand. Seven hundred sixty, million dollar loan or whatever. It might be I think the CEO had to say that I don't really know what else he can say like does disregard those that all that option noise give us the money anyway I think that this I think it's sort of become an embarrassment of to the trump administration and they probably should just. Speaking now someone who's long puts right that they should just let this one go and not not fun this loan it's too noisy. Ten and Every part of that option is just terrible right Tim. What it gets back to you know even if they get the loan, are they the right company to be producing the pharmaceutical? Talk. Once upon a time, try to be a blockchain company. Now back to photography company trying to be a generic drugmaker ingredient maker is right company. I mean. This is a company that has tried to reinvent itself Multiple Times since twenty twelve bankruptcy. And so I just it's hard for me to understand. We don't have enough of a show to talk about the what lobbying efforts or like and the impact and how the shouldn't happen anyway even with real companies. But I think if you look at the trading volume volume on the stock, it went from trading by appointment to trading two hundred and fifty million shares at its peak two weeks ago It's still trading about nine million shares to about eating a million dollars of turnover which tells you there's just an extraordinary backdrop still I agree with Karen, I think there's more to go here.
Geneva - Great Firewall Of China
"So this is really interesting. China's great firewall titans. A few weeks ago China added a rule. To Block one of T.. L. S.. One Point Three's new privacy enhancing features e SNI encrypted server name indication. Remember the once upon a time, a single IP address could only be bound to a single web server certificate. When any client connected. A Browser, the web server listening at that Ip's port. Would respond with a certificate for the domain that was associated with that Ip. This prevented the practice that has now very common in crucial especially for IP v four known as multiple hosting. Multiple, hosting allows multiple separate domains to all point to the same single Ip. But for that to work the client, typically a Web Browser must somehow indicate from which among multiple possible domains at that Ip it wishes to be served. So an extension was added to SSL to allow the clients. SSL Hello handshake packet to make that specification. Clear. The web server answering at that Ip would inspect the incoming SSL hello packet. If it was in possession of valid web certificate matching the domain the client was requesting in that hello packet. It would select the web server would select that certificate for the subsequent SSL negotiation and would also remember which website to serve to the client when the den made its first, you are L. request. From a privacy standpoint. The trouble with this is that the so-called Sni server name indication necessarily had to be provided to the server right up front before the SSL connections privacy encryption could be established. So that allowed any passive eavesdroppers to easily determine to which is fine. This pending SSL connection was being directed. And one could imagine if you were China running the great firewall, you would be interested in. Secure connections coming up and to which domains they are going to. But this this overt lack of privacy drove those evolving the T. L. S. standard to work out a means, which is present. Now, N. T. L. S. one point three of adding encryption to the S. and I extension to create e SNI encrypted server name indication. This is good for user privacy but of course, it's the bane for anyone having any anti privacy agenda such as presumably the Chinese State which we know has a manifest interest in controlling in censoring what is citizens are allowed to enable to access. Since adoption of new security standards is notoriously slow. This wasn't initially a problem for China, but as T. L. S. one point, three usage has continued to grow. The growing usage of ESPN I as a feature of T. L. S. one point three had been giving Chinese censors some headaches. I have a chart in the show notes, which is encouraging This shows as of the beginning of twenty eighteen. So two and a half years. where the various SSL's and T. LSS are and the the all while the where we are now the bottom two lines today SSL to an SSL three are who looks like less than and maybe ten percent S. L. Three but steadily dropping T. L. S. one point two is on the rise One point one is dropping one point Oh is dropping and one point three is also on the rise. So looks like Tijuana's almost at one hundred, percent support and. Tia last one point three is currently at nearly one third thirty, one point, seven percent. So definitely on the rise, and that means that nearly a third of connections with clients supporting. It at the client end and servers supporting out at the server end would be blinding the Chinese firewall to who they're connecting to. And as I noted at the top turns out that China has reacted. Just recently two weeks ago a bit of a heavy hand by simply blocking any T. L. S. one point, three connections which use ES I. Other. https traffic is still allowed through the great firewall. If, it uses an older version of T. L. S. or non encrypted SNI. And it's unclear what China expects to have happened One, point three and Esn, I are here to stay. But. Perhaps, not in China maybe you'll maybe browsers will. Feature turnoff encrypted es and I A and just fall back to. which would still give you the other benefits of one point three but allow China to eavesdrop. I found an entry in the. List Archive dated from just a couple of weeks ago July thirtieth it was titled in Brackets, T. L. S. and then it said possible blocking of encrypted SNI extension in China. And the posting said, the great firewall of China may have identified and blocked cloudflare's. Es Implementation. He said the poster said I have found that when using a T. L. S. client hello. With esn, I extension to connect to servers behind cloudflare's cdn, the connection will be cut off after the whole Thi ls handshake is done and then that Ip address will be blocked at TCP level for several minutes.
How Harry Styles' ‘Watermelon Sugar’ Became His First No. 1 Single on the Hot 100
"Harry styles scores his first number one on the hot one, hundred as his single. Server searches from number seven to number one out as the hot one hundred is comprised of airplay sales and streaming data. Let's take a closer look at the songs gains in those respective areas. It climbs three two on the all format radio songs chart with eight percent gain in audience. It flies nine to one on the digital song sales chart with a six hundred and fourteen percent gain to sixty three, thousand copies sold, and it rises twenty nine to eighteen on the streaming songs chart with a one percent gain to fourteen point two million streams there was a bevy of promotion last week that kicked into high gear in support of the single I think fans and probably Harry's label knew that this was their chance probably to get to the song number, one Harry released three physical. Singles and his web store each of them came with a digital download of the song and that counted towards sales for the week his single with sale price for sixty nine cents at all major retailers, and there was even a couple of new videos for the song that were released as well. A one I think was like like a tour visual, which I think people thought would be like the visual that would have been behind him if he were on tour. And there was I, think I wanNA say like a behind the scenes video to there is clearly a whole heck of a lot of promotion around the song last week. Yeah of lot going in because as you said, this was kind of the. Time to strike while the iron is hot. There's so much of the mental behind the song Harry of course, is the second member of one direction till end a number one on the hot one, hundred following Zane with pillow talk back in twenty sixteen. So Keith let's take a minute and talk about how watermelon sugar became his first number one single. Besides besides obviously, the things that we just laid out in terms of the airplay streams in in sales obviously because that was a huge driver last week, but it couldn't have got to number one without sort of hit in the first place is kind of overseeing sorry to. Interrupt. You know it's I. I was looking up this morning when this song actually came out Harry styles debuted watermelon sugar on Saturday night live on November sixteenth. Twenty. Nineteen. To give some perspective of what was going on. It it was released to the same weekend as the Charlie's angels. reboot. that. Feels like a million years ago. You look at this as an airplay hit. First of all, adore you which peaked at number six on hot one hundred still in the top twenty by the way. It seems to me that a door you really kind of opened the door for Harry at pop. Radio. Way And following a door you and success which hit number two on the radio songs chart legacy number six in the high one hundred. Sugar which had been around a while just started surging. As the latest single from fine. Line. Sugar debuted on the radio songs chart in mid June and then has jumped all the way to number two this week. And then as you know, this is the third week in a row that both watermelon sugar and adore you are in the top five at Rio songs. And I you know I think what we're saying is I think what we're saying Jason is that Harry Styles is incredibly popular on the radio this entire year which. Is Not entirely expected, but no a pleasant surprise. It's awesome. These songs have been huge on pop radio and I just anecdotally I hear them all the time and I have for months especially adore you and now more. So watermelon sugar anyway key. Yeah I've been writing a lot about song of the summer. We talked about it a lot. and. I think that's part of the reason why watermelon sugar has done so well, is that the timing really worked out they released the video in May and it's just become this big summer song by the way climbs thirteen to eight on the latest songs in the summer. Chart. It's making a last minute run for the crown. But I I mean two babies Rockstar has been number one for seven weeks. So I that seems unlikely to me seems unlikely. But yeah, it does seem like I mean especially when you pair it with the video, which is you know very bitchy and summary and it's breaking at just the right time to it's just firing on all cylinders seems like. Yeah and then meanwhile you have this artists in the middle of this storm that is you know a has. A total one, hundred percent approval rating just in terms of how adored he is no pun intended. He's obviously like has this hard to define cool factor. You know he's basically been letting the music do the talking, and now this is another huge accomplishment for
Howard Stern's surprising advice to Ellen DeGeneres amid toxic workplace allegations
"Okay. This is a wild story Howard. Stern has some surprising advice for Ellen. Degeneres. Ellen's been in a tub attorney trouble recently like. It's been going on for years, but it's just been a few months. Her reputation suddenly has been damaged I. think allegations about a toxic work culture and worse now Howard thinks eleanor should actually embrace this new persona and she should not try to be rehabilitator image no no. No she should basically just say everybody this is me and I'm a son of a you know what? Would he just go with it lead into this new image. He also goes on to say for many many years people thought he was horrible and he's actually kind of a nice guy I've got to admit the few times I've met Howard, he sort of like a good guy, and then was not as Nice went on the Ellen was more difficult than Howard. What do you think about this advice should ellen just lean into being a monster? What do you think Mr? The first is to laugh because all Howard wants to do is spend time with his gorgeous wife Bath and their dogs. I understand him giving her that advice but she spent thirteen years building brand of kindness and giving. She's not going to give that up. But let me tell you. She is going to have to act a little differently on her show day one she needs to come on camera and say, look she has to admit this has been happening all summer to ignore it and be like, Hey, we're having a dance party nobody's GonNa buy it. She has to come on and say look I know that people have talked about. The show they talked about me. They've criticize whether I'm kindness or not, and I had to take a look into myself and say have I lived up to my own standards and I am this point going to make a change to be a kinder version of myself and then she can kind of go back to the life that she had. It won't be exactly the same, but she has to own up to on it. She has to take one hundred percent responsibility for her actions and then she can move forward.
Caregiving & Employment Make It All Work
"Welcome to fading memories a supportive podcast for those caring for a loved one with memory loss. Me Day is Larry Nice Nsen actually got that right for a JJ me. and. He is with Care Jen we're GonNa talk about caregiving and employment, and some of the things we need to do. So that, we can care for our loved ones and still work and earn a living and keep our economy goings. Thanks for joining me Larry. You gotTA. Jennifer. It's my pleasure. So tell me a little bit about yourself I within we've been chatting for half an hour and I don't think I know how you got into the care end of things. Absolutely and Like like you I am a caregiver I was thrust into it. With the the typical call right? We all get the call that says. I know your life was on a path. But it's now going to go in a completely different direction and you may or may not recover on that path but here's what's happening the way it happened for me. I'm actually has a good ending to it. So I'll I'll give you the the end of the book as I give you the beginning of the book and my father I was driving down the road with my mother he was in his mid seventies and. Started to drive radically in his turned out my mother who is much smarter than medically anyway than she should be said, doesn't look right and drove my father to the hospital where they found out he had an advanced brain tumor. and. Everything was fine until it wasn't right and so he had a brain surgery. And a hundred percent recovery from the brain surgery except for one little problem. Is paralyzed from the neck down. And Yeah didn't expect that to happen either they stocked her said there's no reason it should happen but here we were planning. Just, a normal Tuesday afternoon we were planning on a normal Tuesday we're going to do whatever. We really do the rest of the week and working and see each other and that will get time and now. Instead my mother and my brother and I were trying to figure out. What do you do with somebody who is paralyzed from the neck down who can't speak WHO's basically in a coma and they don't know what the prognosis is. Now fortunately for us I told you the story ends well. My father. After about nine months of having to learn how to speak again and walk again and all that stuff. About Ninety eight percent. None of the only thing that he had as a residual was he had what they call it drop foot right? His his right foot doesn't pick up all the way and so he ends up wearing a brace on to help him keep his foot up because otherwise he'd have the second biggest problem, which is what most older folks have, which they trip and fall and hurt themselves right But. He was really fortunate because he had a long term care insurance policy. So. When I talk about caregiving. One of the first things I say to people is we were incredibly fortunate were incredibly fortunate that the outcome was positive as I said, he's now my father turned eighty five in May and he is. As cantankerous Z. was. For my whole life, and so he's everything he should be and we didn't have to worry at no point. Did we have to worry like most caregivers do on how to pay for things? He had a long term care insurance policy. So money wasn't the issue it was just a matter of emergency care and what to do and so. I broke into this industry twenty five years ago in the insurance business. And came to genuine. To. Help them build out a portfolio of products and services around caregiving and the financing of aging in so. It's something that's near and dear to my heart is near and dear to most of the folks including our CEO. And all of our senior leaders were all caregivers in one way or another, and so we bring to the idea in the solution, not just the technical or academic end. But we're all We bring the empathy of people who provide care on an ongoing basis to, and so we think we we kinda understand what the average caregiver GOSTA.
A Mother & Her Newborn Separated by COVID-19
"I scare. It's so great to talk to you after all this hard work on your film. It's it's it's really good to be here. So thank you so much for having me. Yeah, I. Mean, we're so we're so excited. I know this is your first frontline. So congratulations on making over the finish line with us together. It feels really good I to be honest I'm also a view or an an a big fan. So it's It's a real pleasure to be working with. Such a talented group of people. Thank you. So I I was hoping you could set the scene a little bit for us. This is an immigrant family from Guatemala and the Mother Zoo League. Is close to giving birth to her second child when she's hospitalized with the virus. So what happens next? So it's it's April first and was eight months pregnant and Kobe positive tool doctors determined that he had to be intimated to perform an emergency c section. Baby Mazel was born on April second baby was Kovic negative. The real problem here was that his father Marvin and his seven-year-old brother junior were also covid positive. So there was no way he could go back to that that that environment that was a real problem school. Before it being intimidated solution was able to. Ms. Luciana. Lira Luciana Lira is juniors. Schoolteacher and she said, help my son help my husband and my baby. Massad listen, Marvin I am willing to help one hundred percent I really do not know this family. Zilly just came to the United. States. I think a year ago and Marvin has been here for six years and junior is my bilingual student. And that's how I met them. When we were able to test marketing engineer, they were both Cova nine hundred positive. This baby would've not stand a chance if he went home with his father with Covid nineteen and junior. His, just a preemie baby. I think that that tells you so much about Miss Lewis character and and her her personality for you to receive a phone call like that I really need to take care of my son, my husband and my baby and she did I mean, can you imagine you received the phone call? She thought that it was a joke that that it was a prank I. Mean. What's amazing is actually that was the first footage of your documentary that we saw the really truly remarkable scene with MISL- era and the baby, and you know she's holding the baby and she's telling you this incredible story about why she took all of this on. To be honest I I'm living. Sure how? I was able to get that that access because she was not letting anyone in her house and she told me, Hey, not even my sister is allowed to be in here. And I'm like well, I'm going to try to be. Is Just GonNa be me I'm going to have a camera. Ms Lira trust me I'm going to try to be you know as cautious as I can be. I think just important that you share that story and I think she wanted to share this story otherwise wouldn't have been possible at all. I went to the hospital with Marvin. Wasn't easy because you know he saw his son for the first time. You couldn't even go him. To. US. And it really broke my heart. After going through such a big trauma not even knowing if your wife was gonna make it, do Pakatani communicated to be. A month of. On the Nights at the baby home. Right, maybe. It was amazing seeing those those early scenes that you had filmed. You know obviously, you guys didn't know how this was gonNA turn out and I remember talking to you sometime before mother's Day and you were telling us that maybe Suli we'd get her baby back. I mean you certainly didn't think it was going to go on for as long as it did was actually five and a half weeks. So tell me about the emotional journey that Suli and Marvin her husband were on you know I think that The story was so unexpected and it had so many twists that I think nobody was expecting it Ms Lear thought that she was going to keep the baby for maybe two or three days. It was very emotional to witness the lives of and Marvin all of them were were positive at that time and the pediatrician said if the baby is going to go back home. Everyone in that house need to test negative, otherwise, it can happen. So you can imagine that the minutes felt like ours you know in the our failed like days to them it was really difficult for for for Suli it was very, very difficult for her because she was going through a lot. You know she said that she had night Mertz pretty much every single night and that she she was not able to get any risk at all You know it's not easy. Imagine that that she said, I didn't have a chance to look at my son you know in I just have A. Faded picture of him and that the only thing I know they do a lot of video conferences. So to say, watts up, that was their main way of communication and missle era. You know she was sending videos every day calling them. You know just to make sure that that bond was was still there you know kind of like a virtual bond. That moment, but it's the law of mom. There was a very powerful connection and you can see it when you see in the scene when they when when she's holding the baby for the first time, I mean, it's just an electrifying moment.
Episode 11 The Train It Right Life
"It. A lot of people don't feel like they deserve this or that or they don't they haven't earned this or that or you know what I mean but like you got to change your thinking you're damn right. You deserve every frigging opportunity that you're given and that you get, you know you are good enough and who's to say you're not nobody nobody can tell you if you are good or good enough for something a prime example is me if I want something. And I'M GONNA it happen one hundred percent whether
Chaotic start to school year
"Well, we have a very odd school year. It's underway in some parts of the country. Other places won't even be underway till after Labor Day, but it is haphazard and. To call it, weird would not encompass it. Producer Joel has to school age kids and what's your kids story as far as their school. So they pushed back the start date for for two weeks of school in the first nine weeks are going to be virtual learning. And your kids are young young. So virtual learning at. Their age five, seven years old. That's right. Yeah. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa be Kinda hard to do the virtual learning thing You know we did my my five year old was in pre k. last year, and you know when they when they stopped going in person, we basically abandoned the online learning pretty quickly because for four year old to try to learn in front of a computer is is darn near impossible. Unless, it was a cartoon video, right exactly and I have a ninth grader, a high schooler who for now is going back into the classroom and they have a color coded system that I talked about a few weeks ago, which is yellow orange and red red is online. Only yellow is in the classroom four days a week in person orange two days a week in person, and they're starting off at yellow four days a week, and they are doing extreme distancing of the kids hundred percent mass compliance. And it is. Everything, they could do to try to deal with the public health side, my daughter, who is a college junior. Her school. Is Online, only all the way at least till January and I. Can tell you, she hated online march, April and May. And It was a terrible way to finish her sophomore year, and now she's got it all fall long as a college junior. They did cut the tuition though four percent. Still a crazy amount of money. But they gave a small tuition reduction. For the fact that is online. and. So this is something all of us are going to experience. It's going to keep changing. A suburb of Atlanta, that was much in the news nationally actually internationally for starting back school with no mass required no distancing required and immediately ended up with an outbreak of corona virus, and now is online only till they figure out what to do next. and. So this is hard for parents. especially, anytime, family lives in a multi generational household with grandparents living under the same rule. Roof is a school age. Grandkids is an intensely dangerous thing. If GRANDKID BRINGS CORONA virus from school and gives it to a grandparent in the house, the fatalities from Corona virus overwhelmingly had been among older Americans, and so the schools will benefit the most and the kids benefit the most from being in the classroom. But the teachers many of which may have a pre existing condition or endanger, and that's why having public health protocol for the kids is so important, but it's also important because. Preventing an outbreak in the school allows the school potentially to stay in person where it cannot otherwise. So. I. Hope that. We're able to keep our kids in school people like me who are fortunate to have at least one kid gets to go back in the classroom, but for this to work going forward. The safety protocols have to come first. So teachers staff. Administrators. Are, as safe as they can be in the school environment and that the kids coming home. Keep their. Family, members safe. That kids are not just like Joel's. Young, child, was not able to. Hang with the online thing, a lot of kids can't, and then other kids don't even have Internet access and can't do so.
Interview With Phil Penman
"When you decide to go into business for yourself, it's as much about your hustle as it is about your talent. Skilled and talented as you may be if you're hustle is not on point. You are going to struggle not only getting into the game but also staying in it. Phil Penman understands that which is why he's managed to establish himself as a celebrity street and commercial photographer. The links that he had to go to his Paparazzi could make the difference between getting the shot or not, but also more importantly the difference of thousands rather than hundreds of dollars. That kind of work is not for the faint of heart especially when it involves negotiating the streets of new. York. City on a bicycle. But as Phil understands, you've gotta do what you gotTa do this is Ebonics and welcome back to they candid frame. Jones, thanks for making time for me. I appreciate it. Thanks for your patience and finally getting round here. Thank you for inviting me I. So you're up you're up to like five, hundred, twenty, eight. So is man gets because you sent me your book months ago. I, talked to my wife who's that producer to try and make sure that we got you in somewhere but it can be quite the juggle because there's so many people that consider. Really I love the Book I love your story but one thing that's fascinating in before we get into talking to you about your photography is just like man you have held so many jobs. So many things. List as well. So it was just was just the the nature of being like a hustler that you were just like just did what you needed to do in order to get by that is that why you? or so many different at one hundred percent of house. So when I was in college I was studying photography and a box. If Alford like a hundred sheets for safe thirty pounds and that's a of money to a college student and you having to crank this week off the week. So I had I would study and I had to free jobs that I was doing waller's in college. So in the daytime, I would serve lunches to like rich preppy boy, Colt prep school kids at a nearby like boy school than a night I worked in a bar and unlike club four nights a week, and then the weekend I used to work even Lego land or Twickenham rugby Stadium. So I would literally our work all day through the night and then have like free hours sleep got a college study as. You did this casino the the bitch would be like we used to do five transparency. Not only will take was the chew to say, have to stop off and the fuck that's enough free. Way, worked in the bar and he go pay to twenty an hour. Like notes it. Hasso Hasso. When you're young. You don't need that much sleep exactly now I'm just like I'm Pasta by seven o'clock. So, when did you get the bug? When did you discover that you wanted to study photography in photographer it was my backup believe it or not i. was fifteen and I wanted to be a sports teacher. My Dad was like, well, you got to have a backup. And he was a professor I so I kind of I grew up with a darkroom and seeing prints in the bath tub being washed and stuff. So he's like, hello go for this newspaper, pick out the picture the you think and if if I agree with you then I'll let you study photography as a backup and I ended up being a terrible sports teacher so You know I virtually failed sports studies by a my photography. So I'm like that's the way man to find out that photography is your fallback. It's funny. Because most people it's like. Repeats the first choice, not the second. It's like my lap was always insistent on you always have a backup everything. So that was my backup and then. Studied like the next freeze I guess and then. Started working straightaway into. Work you started doing initially. I did a year as a local newspaper photographer where it was tree, we do a jobs today and it would be like they had us going every thirty minutes. So you're driving around hundred miles per hour from job to job walk in the room sheet the paycheck next job, and it was like a fos learning cup. So you'd be like sports, events, politicians, babies, presentations, and then I landed a job working for news agency where I was doing hard news but I'm still doing. I basically landed a GIG. She will the cool proportion shift for Microsoft and like I like twenty, one years old and boss was worked for is making so much money from that the it was great for him. So I did I did about six months with him and then I got the opportunity to work for A. Company in Los, Angeles and just jumped
The Internet Is Everything. But Is It Accessible?
"We spent some time digging into just how crucial Internet access is during the pandemic. But even if you have access to the Internet, many parts of it are still not accessible this summer, the Americans with Disabilities Act the ADA turned thirty years old and a lot of the tech that makes things convenient for everyone can be game changing for people with disabilities, screen readers that help visually impaired people read websites and software that lets us type with our voice, Nicholas? Dean, how does a Web accessibility consultant and trainer? He says that? That despite these advances, some products that claim to help actually make things worse. There is no doubt in my mind that we must include people with disabilities at every stage of any project. An example here there's a solution for web accessibility that his being pushed really hard lately, and those are overlays. So you you go, you pay for a service, they inject one line of code and your site, and they claim that it makes the site accessible. When in fact, it reduces accessibility, it is not reliable it conflicts with users. assistive technologies, and we have a solution that is really appealing to people that don't have a disability. They're appealing to people think that can get quick fix. But in fact, it's breaking things. So. When you are advising companies, what features do you tell them that they should include in their websites to make those sites more accessible while there's there's a few things to to focus on to look at making sure you can use the site with keyboard. Only you WANNA, make sure your color contrasts are sufficient something that's been very fashionable as great text on grey background That's really Really, really hard to beat for people that have low vision, and incidentally, if you try to read it on your cellphone outside in full sun chances are you're not gonna be able to read it either, and this is where I'm saying accessibility is good for everyone. Those are really good tips for companies designing their websites. But what can we do to make say our social media posts more accessible. Twitter now offers the ability to add descriptions or alternate text for images and I urge everybody to actually take a moment and described image. They're posting be careful about using emojis too much screen reader users are really going to struggle always think as to how is this? GonNa. Be perceived and how can I make sure that more people can get the message? What kind of innovations in tech are you excited about? As it pertains to the disability community? There's a lot of things happening when we're looking at tick a lot of the excitement, Ron that right now is Rhonda. Emergence and there's a lot of that that can be leveraged for for accessibility. For example, you may have heard of using a I to. Interpret. What a photo is and be able to give her a description of that fo four screen reader users or using air. I. For automating transcription for shows like the one we're having right now. So there's there's a lot of promise in in that field at the same time I. Think we have to be aware that there's there's promise, but it's not quite ready. For Primetime, a lot of the automated transcription or automated captions. You may see on, Youtube, for example, are not one hundred percent accurate. Especially if people have a bit of an accent or use a tech lingo. The accuracy is not perfect. So as a result, people who rely on captions or transcripts will not get. All the information. So they may get eighty percent or eighty, five percent and those ten or fifteen percent missing can be crucial. So. That's that's exciting. There's stuff moving. It's going to, it's going to help, but it's going to. It's not helping now because we can't rely on it and I think that's That's probably a a trap that we have to be careful not to fall into, is that while the technology is there, the technology's not perfect yet? So we can't rely on twitter can't decide well, I don't need to bother. Describing my images when I post on social media, because there's no intelligence that can do that yet while we're not quite there yet. So we have to be careful to. Not Get carried away with excitement as to what's new and shiny and make sure that we still you ju-, diligence to make sure accessibility is taken care of by humans. Nicholas?

Tips every Django developer should know
"This first tip that have this is like one of the main things that I think of is like it comes with these building block pieces that say Flask Impure Pyramid and. Bass APN. What just don't come with like Admin back ends Yup. That's where we're going to start off. So Django clearly comes at batteries included and some people actually don't like that because they've under rule their own and they think itself. I happen to like their preferences and yeah, one of those well-known building blocks as the admin interface at and it's it's pretty impressive. But a few lines of code you. You can just add your model, an avid pie file, and you have to complete crowd interface, which is probably pretty end user. But as a maintain earth, this site it's it's pretty convenient and it's also very easy to extend it. So for example, taking admin class here, you can define some search fields. which makes those field searchable. You can have even have out a complete fields which they integrated the jobless Ritz. You can override to get crazy set and. Yeah. It's a nice way of inheriting from the Admin Dots Model Admin blasts Yeah. So it comes out of the box just. Kind of think of it as like. Google sheets or something for your database, right? Right. Where each table is like a tab or a sheet and sit in the workbook or whatever the terminology of Google sheets is. But the task. The bottom writes something I mean not necessarily stimuli. But that idea that you have like a grid over top of it. But what you're telling me is I can go into rive special classes that are tied to the various. Tables the models more specifically in it lets you search different aspects of it. Lets you cool. Auto completion. You could also say like limit how many items come back in your search results per page. So you don't get a million or something like that, right? Yeah. Do a list filter, for example, and then certain columns at the right side of the page. You can filter on them by clicking. Just. With one nine of coach. So this does raise some Cole functionality and I think, maybe in the show notes, we can link to a Django adleman cookbook, I use a loss which has like the hands. On. I. Might have mentioned before actually on pie down the vice then the umbrella from that book. That's like fifty pages and. Yeah Very. Workable. Super Bowl. Another thing you can do is you can write a function called get query set and actually do things like be joyner, do a joined queries against other things. Otherwise you may it up with like the N plus one problem of Orum's were doing queer than everything that comes back. You have to do more queries per item to try to fill out the details, I will talk about that in in one of the tips. Yeah. Yeah. Awesome. That's super cool. Let's see what else you want to say about that I. You know I was it. You think it might have been you either you or damn baiter. baiter from real python talking about using this to actually trigger events as you interact with this adman was that you think that was me. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So tell us that's like I. think that's pretty related. Tell people by the pretty. Cool. Right. We spoke about that on Python Bites Yeah. Thank God. We did was in one of the at model self variety safe method, and then the object plus created, and only then do a certain action. He likes emailing people in Hindsight. That's probably better to do it a salary task by it's an example how you can override those methods and do certain things. Yeah. Pretty easily. Yeah very cool. All right remember to or magic. Yeah. Well, Dan go comes with its own orem object relational napper and it's kind of a proxy today. So you don't have to ride s all yourself although i. Am such a fan. I'm saying, well, you worked at, Oracle, didn't you? Fan of orange actually or in the nurse sequel world maybe od M.'s or or some. are might not necessarily make sense, but you know there's so many issues you can run into if you don't use parameters, queries, little bobby tables, and all those issues and just like if you get the rock queries back and you pull different values sometimes you forget to convert this thing to an integer and it's just a string that has an energy in it that sort of. All these little weird edge cases right now you're as. With. Orum's at kind of. Like a layer that just separates like how your data should be transformed I. Really Love It. I, think it's great. I know one hundred percent work all the time. Right? There's places where it doesn't. But that's not as you know like most the time it's a it's a beautiful thing and it's it's a nice obstruction and it's way easier to use and more elegant.
Getting Things Done with Senator Doug Jones
"I'm Senator Doug Jones from Alabama and here's the truth it all my work in the Senate I have your back and no one else. Sorry, not sorry first of all senator thank you so much for taking the time to do the podcast I would like to start by talking about Kobe nineteen and we're recording this in the middle of July. We knew in February and March, what needed to be done right now one hundred, thirty, eight, thousand people have died projections indicate more than two hundred, thousand people will die by November, cases are rising almost everywhere in the. Country especially in the South and the trump administration is just I don't know how else to say it, but he has just failing in every possible way in managing this pandemic. So what is your opinion? What should we be doing nationally and what should Alabama be doing to combat covert nineteen listen first of all, thanks for having me I really appreciate this opportunity to speak with you. It's good to talk to you. See you again. Let me tell you I think we have to do what I've said all along that we have to do and that is listened. To the healthcare experts listen to the healthcare experts that are the national voices like Dr, Fallacy and Dr Redfield and those that are on top of this, listen to your local healthcare professionals, listen to the statewide healthcare professionals and follow their advice. The problem that we have right now is that clearly we have a lack of leadership from the administration. We have not seen the kind of leadership that we should have from the very beginning of this administration was downplaying it, and then as I think the president realized that we had to shut the economy down which was. His Pride and joy Dan, he started to try to intimidate people too much to open the economy up. He was intimidating protesters in Michigan and elsewhere, and that had a ripple effect around the country. Then it was politicizing the wearing of masks as we learned more and more about this virus it became clear that we needed to wear masks, and then all of a sudden became a political issue. It's not as much anymore, but it's still in places a political issue, and now we're politicizing the opening schools schools. Do you think that Alabama was too quick to Rio Ben? I think we tried to accelerate. The process and I think you know From our standpoint that has had a negative impact on our progress and I think that's why we've regressed. And we've seen a three hundred percent increase. In cases month over month after going the first three weeks of this. At a forty percent club if people would listen to the healthcare professionals, follow the guidelines and understand the world had never seen this virus before like December nobody has the antibodies at that time. Nobody had the immunities and this is a work in progress. We are learning more and more and more about this virus. As we go along, we have no vaccine are therapeutics are getting better. The only way we can stop the spread of this virus is for us to do our part. We're in this together, we need to act like, do you think we need some sort of coordinated national shutdown? To try to get this under control I. think that would be very, very difficult to try to do that in there are places in this country where I think that you wouldn't need to shut down nationally right now if they take some of the precautions, we're a big country where diverse country we have seen the virus spread in different areas I think it would be very, very difficult to try to have any kind of national shutdown but you know a lot of the governors are stepping a lot of them are not and lot of them are seeing their states ravage along the governors. have been stepping up doing the right thing. Our governor in Alabama issued a statewide score. She's the only governor in the deep South that his issue that in fact, the governor of Georgia, which is raging as much as Alabama yesterday issued something banning local officials from issuing a mask order. So damnedest thing I've ever heard of and so I think that the states are stepping up individual beers have been stepping up. I mean. When you have a lack of leadership coming from the administration, you've got to have the local leaders stepping up. So I think we're doing it on a hot spot by. Hotspots state-by-state by state community, mount community basis be tough to do it on a national basis, but there's plenty of spokesman out there illicit from the national level better telling people to wear masks and suggestions and do those things. It's amazing to me how the masks were politicized and I saved a lot on this podcast. But anytime, we politicize something we dehumanize it and I think this is a perfect example. But when you look at deaths, the numbers don't lie. So even if you were the type of person to say you know what? I don't believe in science I think truth and fact is. Relative there's concrete numbers here that are undeniable and do you think that there's any chance that we get this under control while this administration is still in place or do you think that it's going to continue to rage and grow until we have leadership in there that can at least be willing to listen to science? Are we gonNA answer you with a glass half full and I'm going to say I put faith in the majority of the American people to start doing the right thing. They're seeing these numbers to their seeing the lack of leadership they're seeing the numbers in the deaths in. The virus, they're seeing the fact that the average age of someone catching this virus now has gone down fifteen years fifteen years from when we first started to. This is just not a senior's forest anymore. So I'M GONNA put more faith than I guess I have more faith these days in. Awadh. The governors of whatever political party and local leaders and mayors to lead by example, and to do those things necessary. What's interesting to me is that her so many folks in Alabama and we had a problem with folks not wearing masks we still do but the so many people aren't listening to the Reason why you wear a mask they think it is just to protect themselves. I've heard so many people say well, I don't need to wear a mask I may get it but I'm gonNA low risk category. So I'll take my chances. It's not about you. It's about the people with preexisting conditions, the diabetes heart disease that things like that puts them at risk. You could be a symptomatic and spread this disease spread this virus so easy without wearing a mask and you not even know it and putting people at risk. So I'll tell folks down here. Look this is golden rule time. Okay. This is new unto others as you would do unto yourself and so wear the mask for others where the mass for those healthcare professionals that are on the front lines that are just having mental breakdowns these days with all that they are overwhelmed about look I'm going to again go back to your question I'm going to have a glass half full I give a lot of faith in the American people to see where we are at start making these comparisons and see through the like of leadership and start doing the things necessary for themselves.
Todd White on Biohacking for Longevity and Disease Prevention
"Today on the show I, welcome my friend Todd White, who is the founder and CEO of dry farm. Wise if you drink alcohol. This is a tricky thing. I mean we we talk a lot about why he may dry farm.

I've been using their products on and off last few years in a huge fan of how they form the products their dosing in dumbest around. So Dr Greg Kelly. Their lead product formulator is actually on the podcast previously upset out but you can trust that knocker collective is always doing one hundred percent dosing backed up by research, a lot of companies where they do. They sprinkling amounts of ingredients. So that way you're not actually getting the full amount that is required to have physiological effect. He just get a little sprinkling and dosing and their their practice. So expected that Dr Kelly actually recommends taking two days a week and they're servings is is seven really huge capsules which just shows how much active ingredient actually put in their product I am personally a huge fan of the caffeine.

Y., DOT COM SLASH E G, one, five talk. Thank you for joining me today. Hey, I'm looking forward to it. It's going to be a great discussion. You're one of the first people that I met. That were sort of early Keitel Angeles. Before this whole boom happened years. It started with Christmas, you guys three or four years ago when you first were up. It's been almost odd years but yeah, we were or I should say many people on the team as well. But. We We were super early adapters before it became a thing. Kid Genyk Guy. It was starting to circulate in the biohacking community about five years ago. Maybe five miss closest six years ago when I started and and you know it was it was getting around biohacking community had not yet gone mainstream. But. Yeah, we were there early and still still big believers. Yeah I mean what was it? That got you into everything being was just the sort of request to optimize your personal health. It was an actually that would be a little bit more glamorous but it was really about vanity I had I had reached a weight loss plateau. It wasn't really overweight and in any way because I've been biohacking and sort of. been. In, and out Akita Genyk. Diet. Really since the eighties with the Atkins Diet but I had been eating a lower car diet for quite some many years. So it wasn't really overweight but I really wanted to lean out. And I I was at a weight loss plateau and low carb just wasn't doing it, and so that's I experimented with Kito that way and then the weight loss went away pretty quickly as it tends to do for most people in fact, lost a lot more weight than I had anticipated. And then sort of what I thought was a set point and a place I wanted to be but I continued the Ketogenic Diet in fact. Double down on it and really became therapeutically Ketogenic, which is different than Akita. Diet. or a modified Keto Diet, which is the way I would describe my diet today but. But I experimented with really therapeutic Ketogenic, which is super high fat and and and a lot of blood testing and a lot of kind of quantification and. You know the cognitive benefits for me. became. So extraordinary that I just stayed on the Diet, even though I didn't have any plans of further white. House.
Modern and traditional interpretations of ribbon shirts
"Today, we're going to start off in rapid city south, Dakota. We have Darla takes the knife. She is a Lakota and Dakota fashion designer, and she is enrolled in the Cheyenne River Sioux, tribe our pleasure to have her here. Darling. Welcome. Thank you. In so Darla, are you working on a shirt right now? Oh. Yes. I am tell me a little bit about it and describe exactly what a ribbon shirt is. Okay ribbon shirt is It expresses our traditional values, our culture, and It. To me, it came from the From just expressing how we dress if from the from the very beginning when we when the settlers, King? They had to You know they still had powwows, they still socialize. they weren't. It was not a contest then. But they still gathered and celebrate it, and so as the materials cain the cotton, they just they started making their own been shirt. And right now, I'm making a shirt that. That is coming from. last names Likud the names. And it's rain and lightning. And I'm putting I'm making a shirt with lightning in ring on it along with the ribbons and along with. The quote, the Su- art, the geometric designs. And the top part is is dark and the in it lightens up as it goes down. So the top part looks like a thunderstorm well and and the bottom looks like it's. It's turning into clear skies. Well. You know just seeing the story that you're hearing about. The story that you're telling through fabric is really exciting. I think when we think about these different things that we wear today, we're focusing in on ribbon shirts, but there's a lot that connects when we think about what goes into our identity, and often what we put on as clothing is a part of that, and so Darla are totally taken into that arena of expressing in celebrating identity and for you to be able to do this with the fabric, how does that? Make you feel? It makes me feel It makes me feel really good to see the end result in fact I'm. I kind of feel like. I'm a separate person, then my skills. And I look back and I are step back in I'll take a look at what I've made and I'm really an all myself. Because sewing shirts is not always an easy things especially around those callers boy, those callers Darla. For you when you get sewing or you start cutting things out and you start, you know forcing how all of this is GonNa come together? What's your favorite part? My favorite part is the creative part, which is the hardest part The style of the shirt varies from from. You know why that ordering it, what they're gonNA use it for if they're gonNA, use it for graduation our. Regalia. Or Just to have. I feel like there's or our presenter someone who's speaking and standing in front of a crowd, and so I have to take all that into consideration. And then I, a lot of times I. I I always communicate with them. I mean hundred percent. You know, what do you have in mind and I let them express their local name? Are. Their ancestors. And I in most likely, they wanNA bring that out. And so I let them know that's what I'm here for and I, get every I get. As. Much information as I can. with colors and with With their, vision. And then and then I meet them halfway and then I'll I'll come up with by my what I my knowledge. and. Then I you know, and so everything I make is so unique. And so you put that Darla flair in there Yes, I do. Very. Nice. In Darla. How many shirts do you think you've made over? Your. Life. Oh, I. Probably made about. I I guess they might have made about. Thirty. and. The reason why is because I make coats, jackets, ribbon shirt or ribbon skirts and Regalia Jingle, dress fancy shawl grass dent. So it's not all ribbon shirt. But. I've made them for some very Very well known in the native world. men. And so I don't, I. Even if I wanted to I, just don't duplicate. The shirts. I mean because it's so hard to duplicate for somebody else I. Just I put all the effort into the one shirt in there and I see them wearing them at the I. At pow-wows are at know our speaking. I've made one for our chairman in the past before you know, it's really an honor when they ask me. I have not made. A quantity. And sold them. I JUST Because I'm so I I got one order after another I, don't have time to do that. Because I'm too I'm always getting a request of some kind.

Digging for the truth
"The Welcome to kiss Miss Mystery signed your host. Kit crump night been receiving a usual amount of people wondering how I tracked down the facts refined the truth when I'm working on a story. So I'm going to run down the process I'd take when investigating and urban legend and try to give a couple of examples, I i. look for anyone that actually experienced the event if that individual doesn't want to talk to me, which is usually the case. Then, I attempt to track down a witness to the event. Often when there are someone that actually experienced a paranormal event, let's say they are often embarrassed or reluctant to speak to anyone for fear, they're going to be criticized or accused of making up the entire event in some cases that involve things political or the government I can utilize the freedom of information. Act But they usually take forty five days or more to respond if the event. Is something that was reoccurring. Then I can tap into police be I reports. However, they are often. So editor redacted with black lines disliked trying to figure out a code to best understand the process will recite a couple of examples I of flying saucer that crashed at Roswell keep in mind that I'm going to leave out a lot of detail and I'm only going to explain off the flying saucer itself no alien bodies involved in this first. Trace the image of a saucer back to nineteen forty seven in horten brothers who created both a saucer and flying wing both brothers were brought back to the United States with two hundred and fifty other scientists at the end of the war in something that was called project paper clip. You may have heard of this where in the United States could the Horton's and other scientists work well, area fifty one of course at what became area fifty one. I continue this option that they would continue work on the flying wing or flying saucer I. Now Research Project Rainbow is a program using some of Tesla's science in an effort to move a battleship from point a to point b you might know this as a Philadelphia experiment. The idea was not to make anything invisible simply to move it from one place to. Another and the military failure they had made a small battleship both vanish and move from one point to another. Now, they bring that science to the Horton saucer and it becomes up flying saucer. The problem is that they can't control the Horton's flying saucer any better than the L. Ridge which was the battleship they tried it out on initially with line saucer vanishes and. then. Reappears eight hundred miles away word crashes at Roswell New Mexico this. You'd give you a very rough idea of the thinking connecting process. Keep in mind that if I have a strange unexplained event, I don't want to go to the authorities or police wrath be I with whatever because they are not equipped for accurate reports on things that go bump in the. Night that leads me to my second example a while back I got a book did explained away dozens and dozens of urban legends is a hundred percent boss. But when I opened the book to the first one, the author said, it could possibly be happening yet. I know for a fact, kidney harvesting does happen and is going on in the United States right now. The book explained away the notion that people are having their kidneys harvest it well, here's what I know. Twenty years ago I was in a restaurant with my editor. The booking question was my book body parts a story I had written about the sale of block market body parts as I was explaining the research a waitress came over and told us how some of her friends had gone to New Orleans and one of them strayed from the group in hoax. So picking up a woman for the night, they had all been. Showing an apartment and she said he would join them in the morning. If he simply ended up closing down a few bars long story short when he didn't show up, they manage to track him down to a flop house where they found him in a bathtub filled with ice less one kidney. So they get into a local hospital at an after examination. The doctor tells them that the surgery necessary to remove that kidney without killing the patient had been carried out in a surgical unit with a team of surgeons trained to. Remove a kidney. This waitress didn't know either my editor or myself. She said her friend who lost a kidney lives in Ashland Oregon but I never tried to contact him but you could see from this second example, how many urban legends are often just dismissed out of hand. The author of that book I was mentioning dismissed the kidney harvesting only consulted police in several doctors. Of course, neither of his sources would have anything to do with kidney harvesting for a lot of different reasons not to mention that harvesting any Oregon is. A federal offense
Decentralized Storage: The Final Frontier, w/ Bluzelle CEO & founder, Pavel Bains
"Is Blue Zell and how is it different from other blockchain's? is a decentralized database. It's a delegated pufus state network and what we found was how came about was when we started a couple of years ago, we're doing projects for banks and insurers and trying to do the whole thing of enterprise blockchain and. Try to bring that in and saying, Hey, this is where the space is where it's going, and while we're doing some of those projects. We realized that okay. We do. For example, today attorney management system for three banks in Singapore. Great used know. But then all the data and certain parts of it we had to actually store in a centralized database. Then we had done in other one for insurance. Travel Insurance for one of the bigger insurance companies in Asia and that one same thing wait part of this information and what's happening store and centralised database, and we realize that you're not getting a full decentralized stack. It's only partial, and then you know you start thinking about at that time everybody's trying to figure out the decentralize web all the components we. Realized that our problem been solved if he had a decentralized database behind it. And that's where we kind of. That's where it came from. We dug in more and said, okay, that's you want to complete the entire decentralize staff and that's how he basically came together and said, this is the player. This theory we're GONNA play interesting. So it was when I think of blockchain's generally I, kind of analogize them with a decentralized database. Say That about. Bitcoin. Decentralized Database which holds ledger information. And stuff like that. So. Is it maybe the the design that makes it the design of Blue Zell makes it more just as secure as Bitcoin like first office. Is it just as secure as Bitcoin and you know that kind of thing and is it just faster or is it optimized specially to do a certain purpose that you know maybe bitcoin or a theory cannot? Yeah. So it's a different use case. So when it comes to ledger transactions, you know blockchain's are great for that. Just quick information things like that. But if throwing wheel data, let's say if you're building a financial product, can you need to store user information or building a game like profile sessions inventory management? You can't really put that on the blockchain because one it would be very slow. For all that hard data behind it, and it'd be very expensive I mean look the prices of cerium now. So what you said was who build a decentralized network database descended database with nodes at strictly are for storing data we get that security that one hundred percent up time of availability is there and you get and you can store large amounts of data edit or even. Less than half the price of centralized databases. So it's a different case. So your transactions, definitely, those things at the stadiums create at bitcoin the other blockchain's you keep doing that but the hard data lakeview application and you know, let's say you're using an APP whether it's Base Camp Mail chimp facebook. All data has to sit somewhere behind it and that's you put on. US interesting. So it's almost like Blue Zell would be a direct competitor. to any of those data centers that we would see that are be owned by Amazon web servers. Right or you know we drive past the freeway and we know that there's a big data center over there. Those are centralized and owned by certain companies right? So you're saying. If a group of people all came together to. Contribute their computing power to storing in serving files to anybody who calls it then you'll compensate them or somebody will be compensating them in Blues, L. Tokens. Right. Right. So think of it as AIRBNB. We've just discovered that, hey, there's a lot of people out there with a lot of computer space on on their laptops devices, xboxes that are sometimes most of the time not used right because everything's really run on the cloud. So what we're saying is made just give extra room in your apartment. Extra space on your computer. To, US will manage it and we'll have somebody rented. So
Mine is all gone

That's my big prediction. I also think lion. King can be the year of the live action Lion King. I think Toy Story four feels unnecessary and be as good, and I don't think it'll bomb, but I don't think it will do amazing Allen. I dunno why? Because Tim, Allen's out here like, you know, really getting pop in for like all right in middle America. So maybe they'll go see it. I will fully be pushing small children out of the way to that. Linking live action. Producers that blanking will put the smash on a lot of record box office record. I it's going to be a whole of it because it's odd. It really is energizing multiple generations in a way that is not is not like Star Wars where that was already sort of sci-fi niche kind not that it's Nisha, but like Lion King. You know, it touched everybody episode nine comes out from Star Wars. And I think it won't do as well as a episodes seven and eight I think it'll well this is gradually gone less. And less, right. Because we're like has. That's why even Lucasfilm was like, okay. I think people are getting Star Wars fatigue. Yeah. And they weren't when he sold it. But they are now. Well, yeah, they were doing a lot. They're doing a lot. But I think I'm so nine we'll be good. Yeah. I think episode of nine we'll be good. And it just won't do quite as well as the other one, right? I think twice soy four will be trash also because kids don't have toys. Like when does that? So you're telling me my life when I leave the room like they're going to have to really like updating the cowboy oh, weird like cloth body. I haven't seen a little baby with a toy car. And I don't know how many years old they're still around are. They maybe from a parent from babies, but then once you get to the age where like so right now, I just don't let my kids have screens, and that's kind of the general recommendation. So it's all toys, but once they're able to get screens just over a sound like a good dad, Jack like, I don't know if everybody's asking parenting their kids that will man I've seen people all the time who they just they got their kid with their mouth of God bay just slack jawed at a screen this baby talk, and you're just like.

"I hope it has enduring impact in a different way. Well, it certainly left liberals being interested in the courts will be fine, but I really hope this keeps people fired up about electoral politics like we can't rely on the supreme court to be the one arm of government that does are bidding whether liberal or conservative, you need vibrant electoral democracy. You need legislatures acting, and I really hope that at the state level at the local level, the city level and at the at the federal level that people are engaged about that issue and and and use those institutions to move forward. Because I think those are the institutions that were designed to respond to the popular will. The courts are very going to be very hard to move its acting in by voting and by being incredibly active citizens and pushing for for legislation that you want. That's gonna make. Biggest difference. The court is has become by bec- because the other two institutions of government, the other two arms of government have withered. So when are so so bad and how they carry out their business it, the court has become overly powerful into having Democrats pick recognize electoral politics matter and vote and vote and vote in vote. That seems to me, I hope is an outcome of this, although I think what you're saying it makes great sense. But the danger is that they ties to presidential election. We saw it with President Trump where people had all kinds of reservations about him, but said, well, he's going to name the springboard Justice now, name too, so that that is more important than any other possible issue insurance. The presidency answer, basically a job where you do one thing for certain voters, which I think it's your your point Dante democratic in terms of having a robust system with all of its component parts that respond to different speeds in different ways to the will of. I guess I just wanna add one. More dope for we leave behind the this particular narrative, which is just that it's Kevin confirm than Christine. Blocking Ford is going to have turned her life completely upside down. You know, from a lot from my sense of her today in a lot of ways like changed it revocable in a way that is not what she wanted all and it will be for not. I mean, that is not her fault. It is not her shame. It's the countries, but I, I'm gonna find that just really, really hard, but it's not for not me. I mean, she did her duty as a citizen. She did her duty as somebody who's who's victim and she will be a, she may not have wanted it, but it was, you know, sometimes responsibility falls on you and you have to act and she acted in the honorable right way. And she will be, I think, rightly praised certainly on the left for the next generation for having done that. And while that may not be the same satisfaction as having actually stock. Opt Kevin o. from becoming a Justice. If he's not stopped from becoming a Justice, it does not in any way negate or or or diminish what she did and she and nor to diminish the impact that this may have on people in the same way that Anita hill failed to stop the Clarence Thomas for being confirmed as the spring court Justice but changed America. And I think it's possible that Ford will change American ways that we can't measure yet and not in the way that she hoped to change it. But in some other way that that it's hard for us to know. But she moved to people. She was credible. She was important and she spoke truth to power, and that's all you can ask someone to do. Hope you're right and Anita hill did say the other day that she does not regret having come forward, and I hope that will be true for Blasi for it as well. I just feel like she is not a person who wanted this notoriety. She wanted to be a professional. She wanted to be she wanted to life. She had it sounds like she had a good life and now she is world famous for one terrible thing that happened her what she was fifteen, and it's going to be just really hard. I think maybe I'm over identifying with her, but I just really feel for her. So let's leave it. There were taping on Thursday evening. Looks like there's going to be a vote in the judiciary committee on Friday as as we tape. That's the plan..

"If that happens, do you guys think that that will be an electoral catastrophe for Republicans? Do you think this is a thing which would cause Democrats to come out and and be just absolutely outrageous turn out even more than they would or do you think as I think is possible that this this whole episode is going to really motivate a lot of Republicans to come out and vote who maybe weren't even planning to, regardless of whether he gets confirmed, I think even confirmed they will come out and vote or maybe it won't matter at all. I think he should firms. I think that re- that democratic women women in general, who we've been I heard from today who just broke into tears at line because of the way is connected to their own frustration in not being heard and listened to in various ways about their own sexual assaults or very close to it. I think that if this gets framed in a confirmation as Republicans not listening to women. Then this becomes a motivational motivation for the lose. If you believe politics is if people are animated by grievance, Republicans will have gotten what they wanted, which is the confirmation of of having and and a control of court. That won't be a reason to turn out, but, but he's confirmed those who didn't want to happen. We'll be we'll be angry and watch it. Now, Emily, what do you think will happen with the court? If Cavanaugh is on John Roberts is so concerned with the court's legitimacy and the the notion that Cavanaugh would be joining that court having pass through on the narrowest of margins in the most contentious. If ways with so much question about his own credibility, his truthfulness and the possibility he is actually a sex criminal. What will the court be like? It's so bizarre to me that someone who made that incredibly emotional reason tation. Well, then put on a black role. And you know March along as court Justice, but that's what will happen. I mean, we saw it happen with Clarence Thomas. Once you're in your chambers, people call you Mr Justice or whatever it is. People calls report justices. There will be complaints galore from critics of the conservative wing of the court when they make any five to four rulings, conservative versus liberals involving issues that relate to women and they will do it anyway because they will have the power to do it. That's what will happen. I can't believe that John Roberts is going to stay his hand in any significant way because you know now breath Cavanaugh has the same kind of, you know, cloud hanging over him that Clarence Thomas to join. You're really good on history on perspective. Do you feel like this cabinet episode regardless of how it turns out is going to be poisoned in the soil of American politics for generations to come. Or do you think it will be forgotten in a way that. These things you know that that once seemed Douglas Ginsburg wants him important a for just one seem important. And now no one cares aid for this was a kind of a special case because he turned out to have one, huge ethical issues. I think I think this plus Merrick, garland create this was Arlen plus trolls court creates on the liberal side kind of. Long term programmatic or in the legal community of the kind we've seen on the Republican side, you know, going back to the Warren court. I mean, if it's if you believe that Republicans have always cared more about the supreme court is voting issue and Democrats and have turned that into a systematic structural protein for trying to reverse the leftward move the port. I think that happens on the. I think that I think the same thing starts to happen more already happening, but but happens on the left. And I think because it has this gender aspect and this and it's not just gender, it's not just like women's issues. The conversations I've had here including now with my wife who was outed herself in her own here is experiencing with an assault. You cannot get any any hotter and to the core. Or of someone's identity and rage than this, and whether you personally experienced it for or come close to it. It's about the strongest feeling you can get get to. So I think it will have enduring of an enduring impact..

"Create IPE indelible, but not necessarily broad memories and then regular people in their memories. It just doesn't that may and the campus yet John to that end. I thought the most astonishing moment in Dr Ford's testimony was that description of the laughter the uproarious laughter between the two, that kind of thing, which would stick. It would just like remain in the memory was so strong because it you, you can just, you can just feel how she felt that moment in and that these this particular detail with stay with you and would be so hard to shake and so sticky in your brain. It was that that was the most powerful moment of the day for me. One of the things Deborah Ramirez said, which was that cavenaugh when he like pulled his pants down, exposed himself, laughed at her, which is, of course completely at odds with the image. He's tried to make paint himself as being this, you know, sensitive advocate of women. There's only one of the most motive for line really unless you'd think that Dr Ford has a long is a long game where she's just been waiting to bring him down. And this moment the play, which I think is preposterous only only he has a motive to lie about it. She does not really. She's not make any money, it's not gonna. It's ruined her life. It's an isolated or light. So that's one big issue. And the other thing that I thought was so telling about the afternoon is that actually the Republicans did not at all engage with Dr Blasi Ford's testimony they it was as though she hadn't even been there, they didn't press him on anything that g mentioned. They just allowed him the conversation in the afternoon from Republicans perspective. Just Kavanagh's on our protecting his honor. He. He was speaking righteously for himself and he'd been characters as needed by democratic plot. There was no sort of substantive engagement with the actual allegations that she made in her incredibly persuasive testimony to that effect. That seems that seems to me maybe because I'm totally wrong. But that seems obvious to me because if you gauge with her testimony as we've seen throughout the week, leading up to this gauge by a male set Republican Senator is very easily characterized as doubting whether this ever happens with women in general, what? What? What? What standing up for his character allows them to say she was telling I found her credible, but then shifts the nature of the question to his carry his. Characters has nation his being dragged through this process. I think if they engaged with with Dr ward too much, they risked running into for lack of a better phrase and the need a Hillbrow. Well, that's true. But of course, the character assassination is coming about because she made this accusation and so can't right. I mean, politically speaking what you said makes total sense. But logically the beginning, it doesn't make. Just dealing with the politics, not and I am not the logic. No. I mean this and. And this is why the lack of closing argument really hurts me, which is nice for the purposes of logic, someone to take everything we'd heard from both sides and tied together with a unified field theory so that this can be, you know, understood with the narrative arc based on the fact that we're. Uncovered today. I, at this point assume that he is going to be confirmed. I think it's very likely they will be a party line vote on Friday morning where they will vote for him out of committee and that it will go to the floor. And I think there will not be enough to stop Collins and Murkowski from voting for him. I just don't think they can withstand the pressure that's going to come from the base after Kavanagh's exceptionally forceful performance and the pressure that will come from Trump on this. If that is the case, Emily, you can disagree about whether you think it's going to happen. I refuse to give up on calms Murkowski. There is just like a betrayal of women that will be unfolding if they do that. I mean, maybe they can come up with them principled way to explain it, but I don't know what it could possibly be. And so I just can't. I can't accept that yet. Although I completely see why you think it's like..

"Yeah, and he was at Yale and all the drinking is totally mixed into that. Julie sweat neck. The third accusers come forward also missing. You know, the FBI investigation that did not happen that one would presumably want if this was really about finding the truth and about clearing your name. I mean, I think that was those were the questions that Cavanaugh just like danced around. It was not convincing about today, and then there's the missing Mark. Judge the the friend who would presumably back up cavenaugh, but it's so toxic because of his own drinking, which is really flagrantly on the record that he the Republicans can't let him into the room. It's only by leaving out all of those people and factors that we can narrow this down this choice. Character assassination this about character assassination that Lindsey Graham wanted to be upset. I just say one quick thing about judge that this occurred to me which is having made it sound like, well, just friend, but you know, wasn't it severally as best friend, but but. Dr forty, put them in the same room like she didn't. I mean, she obviously didn't make up one thing about testimony that was so powerful. Whatever happened. This is not who came in at the eleventh hour because she's a democratic operative. No one can create a detailed narrative that just making it up. Right? And so she put porting having on the same room like why pick those two people. I mean. Making that connection and connecting him to the guy who wrote the book about how drunk he rise, that that that isn't incredible kind of piece of information that kinda wasn't wrestled with by his response about judge in which make it all the more important to have had him there to speak for himself, right? And also the fact that that calendar, which which Cavanaugh was so indignant about an insistent about indicated there was on July first, a party at which judge and Cavanaugh, and the other people that that doctor named were had were at a party at a different place. And so there there's there's so much in her story that that speaks to truth or or or is or is kind of confirmed by other vague ancillary evidence. I mean, you know, we'll obviously never know, but but judge judges absence was extrordinary and and the way. I thought Democrats were very inefficient and ineffective at making big deal about his absence. And you know the Senate Ken force him to come testify, they chose not to because the majority wouldn't want it, but it's it's pretty amazing. The judge has been allowed to skate on this ridiculous statement that he made about the morning, David. I wonder what you think about this. I mean, I think the weakest part of Blasi Ford, not not what she presented, but just like in trying to judge this is that there isn't someone else who were members being at that party. Doesn't mean it didn't happen no reason that it would have been memorable for the other people. There was thirty six years ago, but we don't have the, you know, firsthand corroborating witness. And you know if there was like, if you're gonna try to in a principled way, say I don't think there's enough evidence here to vote against Cavanaugh. I think that's your most principles like helping hand, but didn't I assume you guys have done the same exercise. Is that I've done, which is to think back like, all right, what was I like it fifteen. I think of episodes when I was fifteen and you can think you can call to mind the things that were most amazing difficult or shocking, but almost everything else is just a mass, like it's a sort of sense memory of something that happened there. Something that happened there, but you don't. You couldn't with any accuracy CEO what happened on this date or with these people? It's only there a few very specific things that you could call to mind which were particularly traumatic or particularly exciting. And so the chances that anybody else would remember that party that event, like how anyone got there, what happened if Dr Ford never said anything about it is nil. No one would remember that. So it's not at all surprising that nobody remembers that I know about the way the brain science works, which Emily brought up, you know, a week ago, but then we had a doctor on the show explaining that, you know, when you have a moment of trauma..

"For us, didn't use that as an excuse for him. He's refused to admit that that could be a possibility. And so we're left with this picture of that. He's presented himself in which you know to me his veracity is just like it's just at odds with all these other pieces of information. Yeah, the it was very defensive in and riddle about the question of drinking, and it just seems to be clear from both his friends and also the yearbook page and and his friend judge that that he was obviously more than he's letting on. The second thing is the political attack. Bring up the Clintons I think let let your Republican questioners do all that you. I thought it went. You know, when he talked about his daughter praying for Dr Ford and he talked about what this had done, his reputation, his family. I thought that was the most emotionally powerful. Why get into all the partisan stuff. Let's let the politicians do that. They're gonna do it. Why do you? Why is that helpful to your brief. Especially because then it costs doubt on how you're possibly going to be fair and impartial judge when you get to the bench and you have liberal causes and plaintiffs than Democrats in front of you just but I think he was playing for his audience was two sets of people. One was the president who he did not want the president to yank his nomination. I think he was weak and and so he was very much playing to the president. And then I think he was playing to the men on that committee in a very canny way. I thought it was an incredibly effective performance for those two audiences for the men. He he and for Trump it was his indignation, his denial, his aggressiveness about it, his aggressiveness towards the questioning with something which which we know Trump response to in the Trump respects admires and that that kind of concede territory attitude is is very Trumpian in his very sympathetic to it. And in terms of the the. The sender's himselves. I think they also saw themselves in cabinet and saw the sense like, oh my God, I could be subject to this and look at. He's standing up for his honor in the way that I would stand up for my honor. I think they were the white male Republican senators were very, very strongly identifying with him in that is exactly why they took back. The questioning midway through is like they suddenly recognize I wanna be associated with this guy. I don't need to. I don't need to protect myself any more in the way I did in the morning, but I don't wanna be on record asking any questions about this. I don't want a computer Dr buzzy for like they suddenly they realize like, you know what this guy is going places I wanna be with him. I wanna get on the side of it, and it was the basis going to like it. I totally agree. And then of course the play is that you force doesn't constantly simmer Cousy and I guess Jeff flake if he's still in play you force there. Hands. You make them vote for you because the other forty eight centers plus President Trump are still behind you. That's the play and I was prized, but I think they're totally right about it. I think the play was most exactly articulated by Lindsey, Graham, you know, part of this when it's done is who gets to define the argument who do what the question is. It's going to be decided before the vote. And if you can define that territory, you know you frame the question you win and Lindsey, Graham basically said for any Republicans, thinking about voting against him will be vote for characters assignation. So it's trying to shift it from, do you believe Dr Ford to? Are you okay doing this to him and for cavenaugh sorry for Macau skin Collins. The extra power of that there is it doesn't matter for corker and flake. They're leaving, but base voters in their states are getting a cue from Graham and saying, this is the choice that the Senator is making. And so it's increasing the pain threshold for them from Republicans who see things the way Graham totally right about Lindsey, Graham reframing. And of course what it leaves out of the picture. We're all the people and elements that were missing today. So Deborah Ramirez wasn't there the second woman who accused him of sexual misconduct when she was?.

"Well speaking of algorithms that they have produced there's a new synthesizer vailable that you can get on get hub that is powered by a google algorithm it is called the incense and it stands for neural network synthesizer and it's interesting because what it does it creates sounds based on other sounds so they've used a neural network to learn what sounds sound like and then it will combine them in a way that's more than just blending so you can give it anything you want and give it a baby crying and flugel horn and it will then you can have a slider that goes between the two and you can get any combination that you want and apparently it's like in it was insanely difficult to do this algorithm the very proud of it so they passed on the tech to another like engineering lab within google and they made the synthesizer that you can feed four sounds into and then using touch pad you can blend any of those four sounds together in a way that creates sound so it's not it doesn't make music like there have been experiments with making musically the computer listens to pop music and says i know how to do that this is not that this is how to make an instrument does it learn also over time like does it get better no like the sounds i think are what you get maybe improving the algorithm overtime may be that will improve but the what you get when you make these sounds is what you get it's cool because they've released this synthesizer for free and it's all based on free software hardware that's what i mean hardware the hardware is free no it's not free but the plans of go and get hub you get the laser cut for the frame you get the three stl's for the for the knobs in then you get the all the schematics and the bill of materials you sounds like order all the parts there's videos of it here i can play you a little bit of what it sounds like let's see here i go to the middle.
