"I continue to sell out as soon as retailers filler shelves while the competition between the two consuls is stiff so far. The ps five is outselling. The series x international markets like japan and analysts are predicting. The new playstation will outsell the new xbox overtime like it has in the past adspend could be a large reason for why sales are falling. Sony's favor it's difficult. Of course directly link adspend with sales at this early period especially since both companies could be intentionally limiting their products in the marketplace but based on adspend alone sony's. Ps five has already soared over. Its rival. sony spent three times as much on ads. Microsoft did in the months ahead and immediately following their council launches the ps five launch november twelfth in the series accent over from october nineteenth to november fifteenth. Sony spent fifteen million dollars on ads for its. Ps five well. Microsoft spent about five million dollars. I'm sorry five million smackers on ads for the xbox series x according to a new report from advertising and sales intelligence platform media radar which analyzed adspend across print tv in digital. the report. Found that sony spend spent about seven point three million dollars up to the day of launch while microsoft's spent about three million dollars a although although competitor nintendo did not released new console. Report found that it to increase. Its adspend from november. Second to november fifteenth nintendo's adspend was one hundred thirty eight percent higher than the previous two weeks blessing. What you from this. I've a it's one of those. It's fun to read something from an ad site that doesn't understand. I think where games are right now. 'cause like these things are gonna sell it no matter what however many ads like but it is interesting. I think to extrapolate back you. And i have talked about how playstation five seems to be dominating the conversation where it is. Are we talking about playstation five. Feels like both we mean. You know obviously people in our circles. We're talking about both things but in terms of what you're seeing on your tiktok what i'm seeing from my friends. You're hitting me up asking a questions about the new consuls. It's all ps five. And i wonder how much of that is because of advertising. Yeah i do wonder what i mentioned in the article that has been could be large reason. Why sales are falling in. Sony's favor right like my immediately. My immediate inclination was to was to go. Well i think sales are falling this only because they already have the built in audience that are probably transitioning from the psi psi but then also The promise of software is. I think there were on the sony side then on the microsoft side. Sure when we talk about as we talk about conversation talk about mindshare in the uae public consciousness. Right that goes beyond us who are tuned into the video game space. Yeah i could see that like i. I could see the fact that we were talking about the playstation five as a bigger as a as an upgrade council over the xbox series x because it is a more tangible thing. I wonder i wonder if there is a specific reason why microsoft didn't have more ad spent. I wonder if that kind of goes back to the whole. We don't believe in generations thing they're treating it as a more incremental thing. I go back. I think it goes to them. Not having halo. That was the next one was gonna say yet. I wonder how much how much. I wonder how much aspen would be if they had halo as at you have that giant ad spend you know budgeted out and i think that you lose the and i'm not even talking shit. Frio you lose the launch game right. You lose the launch game for this console us back often. You wait and you do you do this crazy adspend when you have it so people have. I mean because. I think it's always soundbites right. It's always like what is the reason to go by this right now. In granted ascribe hollow was marketed. Hand in hand with it. But also that was its own ad going on where assassin's creed has ended with xbox series x right so it's already kind of happening over there. Why push it then when you can push it now. Sony spend makes sense. 'cause there's so many games are trying to promote and getting your hands. Make sure you understand what this is exactly. Yeah and halo. If i'm not i'm not been like watching tv to consistently and so. I don't know how the ads are looking as far as these consulates. But if i had to visualize xbox console edwards the playstation console like playstation. I think speaks for itself as far as oh. Yeah malls morales. Demon's souls bug stacks list goes on whereas microsoft has less that new fresh thing identity like it. Will it would be your third party games would be your assassin's creed mahala that are leading that charge as opposed to if we were living in the time line. We're halo came out this fall. I think that would be all over. The place like halo would be the thing that you see at every xbox at highlander rating like billboards and all that shit. Yeah i think it all makes sense. And i think yeah you already understand that like how. How much does mindshare really matter. How much does all of it being scarce and every talking about it right now. It's what it goes on for roof before we go to the final news item in the twitter chat ambitious casual. Just pop in says metal gear in all caps metal gear guys in all caps oscar. Isaac is snake.

What is your reaction. Casey and mark leaving. It seems like not good news for by aware for whether at as a company like this whole this last generation hasn't been great for them when you look at Mass spec in drama and you look at anthem and for what seems to be a very critical time for them you know. In with the development of dragging development of dragon age them trying to seemingly still bring back anthem. Which now that now that. We're here now that we're in december twenty twenty. I'm starting to get doubtful of. Because i would have thought we would have heard about anthem next by now but it seems like they've had they said something recently right like in terms of so working out obviously eddie. They're not being dead quiet about it. Yeah they're not dead quiet. But i think even if i remember correctly even update they give they gave wasn't a wasn't anything substantial is just a. We're still working on this thing just so you know But between that between mass effect being where it's at and i know people are excited about legendary edition but even still like they're not by worries in a place where they really really need wins and they really need vision and they really need people who are proven to guide them toward those things can live two big names leaving bauer right now. That leaves me kind of worried. it again. Like you know who knows what the circumstances are they. Both these people have been at by aware forever. I know casey hudson came left then again. I like three years ago and now is leaving again which you know what was going on. Going on but like yeah. It seems like a weird time to be leaving by where where they have.

Orbits are roadways in space: Heres why you should care
"So you have nice explainer on how orbits working and you talk to one of these professors who called orbits roadways in space. I i like that. I like that idea. How does orbiting around the earth work in. How do scientists and engineers actually ensure something like a satellite maintains a stable orbit around us orbits. I think are under appreciated. What you might not realize spaces actually pretty close. It's only about sixty miles up. Which yeah okay. That's a lot but you know if you get in your car and drive sixty miles. It's not going to some entirely new zone in the universe right but space is very different. It turns out the hard part about space is not getting up sixty miles. It's getting so that you're moving. Horizontally fast enough to stay in orbit. You come right back but if you go horizontally fast enough you stay in orbit. And that's where that roadways in space comment is germane because what it means. Basically you're going fast enough that you don't fall down and hit the earth you don't go you stay up there and it's it's pretty neat. There's some atmospheric drag but mostly if you put a satellite in orbit it just keeps whizzing around the earth. And that's pretty remarkable one of the actually. I was researching this story. What am i. The my favorite parts of it was looking at what is called newton's cannonball so isaac newton right gravity lights l. This stuff back in the sixteen hundreds he had actually a really good thought experiment that reveals a pretty clear way. How orbits work. he said. Imagine you're up at the of a very high mountain and you shoot a canon ball horizontally now if you shoot it. With a certain speed goes near flies a little ways and plops down hits. The earth fired a little harder. It goes farther and it's the earth but if you fire it at just the right speed the gravity that pulls the cannonball down exactly balances the curvature of the earth so it just keeps on going around the earth now and the real world. That's not possible because during the mountains. High enough in there's a resistance and all that kind of thing but it still shows. I think pretty elegantly. What in orbit is it's this balance of of an object spacecraft falling down because of gravity but also moving horizontally fast enough that it that it keeps on going around earth in in an orbit. Well that's an interesting trick because you talk about moving horizontally at the right speed. When i see rockets launched their. They're launching up vertically right not not horizontally. So how do you get from that. Tremendous bruce up vertically to a point where it goes horizontal and stable enough to actually maintain its orbit chirp. This is one of the tricks of rocket. Rocketry says why when people talk about rocket science. It's not easy right rockets. Actually almost immediately start turning sideways right after launch so at launch they go up and they use a lot of fuel to go up but the majority of the fuel they use is to go sideways so when you watch space shuttle or space x or any of these rockets you'll note that it starts tipping over towards the east usually and it tips over more and more and more and more. If you watch a spacex launch they actually have a very nice Three d computer view that shows the track of the rockets and you can see that very rapidly. It's going sideways more than it's going up. So the vast majority of the energy needed to put a rocket into orbit is pushing it sideways. Not up if you look at some of these rockets like new shepherd from blue origin. Jeff bezos says rockets startup. Those just go up and down. And that's actually a lot easier than going sideways. Which is what spacex does when it gets a satellite into orbit or in iss launch capsule with some astronauts in it. It's a lot harder to go sideways. Yeah you know you talk about this rocket science. This is not easy stuff calculating you know when it needs attorney or how it gets to the pre velocity. It actually maintains or like. How difficult is that to calculate. It's pretty difficult and you. It's not just the calculation it's also the execution so you have to steer the rocket and what you have to realize about a rocket is. It's you're sitting on top of a controlled explosion so you can think of something like unisom. Tnt blowing up or something. It's catastrophic huge release of energy. A rocket is the same kind of thing. It's a chemical explosion and you just control it just enough that the thrust in one direction. So it's pretty hard to get this balanced just right. It's easier these days because you have advanced. Computers have accelerometers all over the place that no just exactly how much thrust is pointing which direction and you have radar tracking stations that can give lots of details about the launch. So it's easier than it was gonna by apollo missions fifty years ago or something like that but yeah it's still hard.

"isaac" Discussed on The Front Seat with Dallin and Isaac
"That protectiveness or whatever that being hero for true love you know when when people fall for you or when you fall for somebody because they're nice you because there i don't know anyway it's not always bad not saying that i'm just saying that's what i thought this story was and it seemed a little bit too cliche annoying and not what i was looking for. You know what i mean. Okay well that was not the case. The story book was amazing. First of all gusts the main character. Dude guy was not Not just like perfect human being hero like he. He just wasn't. He seemed like a normal dude which surprised me right off the bat but what surprised me also more was. The hazel also was like a normal girl. It was not just a book about her. Feeling sad for yourself about cancer and everything. Although there was the and that's understandable lincoln normal but she was like there. It was about her life and her person. I'm just saying i if there's anybody who like me after. Seven years has not not jumped on the vulner- stars bandwagon Please jump on it because it will it it. That was life changing. That book was so good. Does characters were so good without the whole cancer story or anything that added to but that didn't it wasn't necessary to love the characters interesting. they're just good people. I loved it to sam. Wanted to Review that book real quick and it. No it is not just this book about victims and heroes and the boy who saves the girl and all that much more complicated good book now. I'll probably read that one of these days straight. You should really should win these days. So oh yes so next thing. We want to talk about so this is just something that i think is good to be reminded over a is like especially right now like winter months. Statistically are harder for people. it's just a proven thing specially in utah right. Here we go with. The light is going to be a rough winter like it was getting dark today. Early and like makes with kovin in and of itself is a recipe for disaster like mental health. Wise meant yeah mental twice and so this is just like one of those things where like just reach out somebody. You know what i mean like. It's important to reach out to people and like for me sometimes. I don't reach people. Because i'm like well if they wanted to talk to me that reject me okay but sometimes i really think my thing. Is you this sometimes. What people need to reach out. You need you to reach out to them right right sometimes. You people aren't gonna reach out to you. Like let's say i felt like i should reach isaac isaac felt like he should reach out to somebody else is my reaching out any less valid. No like it's just like different. People can feel.
"isaac" Discussed on The Front Seat with Dallin and Isaac
"So first of all. We're gonna i talk about. We're gonna play that clip bizarre sunan. And then we'll just go from there to break right now here. Is sarah telling us about strangers. How they are. Awesome isaac allan. This is sarah. This is one of my story because these messages can only be a minute long so i recently spent a month in the netherlands. I was supposed to move there. And when i first got there i was in quarantine for two weeks and is very strict so i had to ordering groceries and when the deliveryman came to the door i came out with my credit card. Because that's what i thought was going to happen. But apparently in the netherlands. You use a bank card. You're doing a bank transfer. Every time you make transaction and i didn't know that but also if i even had known that i couldn't register to bank because i couldn't register at the city because i had to be in quarantine for two weeks and so i was sort of stuck in a no win situation and we tried everything we tried different payment options like loopholes and he had to call back so he was calling back to his office in became clear that i was not going to be able to get these groceries and he looked at me and he said. Do you have any food. And i said no. I don't have any food. And by this point i was almost in tears. And he's like okay. He's like. I'll i can pay for groceries. I'm like oh my gosh like you don't have to. I like how can i pay you back in so then we tried to figure that out when we were trying to figure that out he was telling me a story he's a. He was a turkish emigrant. He came over with his father from turkey during the huge push for turks to come to the netherlands and he was saying that when he arrives. The dutch weren't very. They're very kind people he was saying but they're not exactly the most financially kind people. There's a reason there's the phrase for paying. Everyone for themselves is called going dutch so after he tells me this story of who he is and why he wants to be kind to me. Because i was an american immigrant which we discussed. This has been half an hour by now and he finally. He's like no all just pay for them. It'll be fine like you don't have to pay me back and i'm like oh my gosh like i have to pay you back. I'm like okay. I have a little bit of cash. I'm like i can. I can pay for about half of it with cash. And he's like okay. He's like he's like. That's that's fine and so i i run upstairs and get my cash. I go back out to him. I give it to him. And i said how. Can i get you the rest of this payment. And he said he's a don't worry about it said. Just pray for me. And i'm sure it'll all work out in the afterlife and that was one of the sweetest things and i needed right at that moment. So.
Measure J approved by Los Angeles County voters
"Since the official election day, but L. A county is moving ahead quickly with while the ballot measures approved by local voters measure J. It requires that at least 10% of Lake County's unrestricted general funds about $350 million a year, right now be spent on housing mental health treatment. And alternatives to incarceration, the goal to reduce recidivism and help trouble people through treatment rather than the jail system. Tomorrow, the county Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss setting up a measure J Advisory committee. Joining us now to talk about where things go from here is Isaac Brian, executive director of the Black Policy Project and co chair of the re Imagine L. A County group. Ah, coalition that supported Measure J. Good morning. Good morning. Shane is going to be so good to have you here now. Ah, lot of people whose introduction to measure J was on their sample ballot may have thought that it came out of the recent rallies. We saw the spring over issues like Racial justice. But this is not a new idea. Very briefly. How far does the concept behind measure J go back when it comes to L. A county? When did this idea sort of first start percolating? Absolutely and Albert is a combination of both. So from the last decade we have been organizing against the size and scope of our jail system, one of the largest jail system in the world. It's also the largest mental health provider on the West Coast. And instead of thinking about treatment and care, we often cycle folks who need support to our county jail system. And so here in Los Angeles County of the last two years Set up a civilian oversight commission to oversee the sheriff's department. We set up an office of diversion reentry. We cancel the contract to build two new jail facilities in the last couple of years, and instead we launched in alternatives to incarceration Work group. Explored very deeply. What a continuum of care might look like should look like in. That work group was chaired by Dr Bob Ross, the California endowment and teaching both community voices and system stakeholders. That report was submitted to the board. In February. There's a lot of groundwork that led up to this moment, but the the unrest of this year of this spring and into the summer definitely spurred this To action. I think the foundation was laid. But that was kind of like the catalyst that let us know that this is the moment we have to push. And if you saw your sample ballot, you saw Patrice Cullors as one of the signatories as well as myself. Patrice is one of the co founders of Black lives matter. And so there's a lot of overlap between the lethal encounters we saw earlier this year and and how this ultimately came to be. Under measure J. What kind of programs will be eligible for funding? And who specifically? Will those programs try to help Are you looking at, you know, say young people trying to target young people specifically before they might get into trouble with the law? Something like that. Absolutely so pending the board's approval of ah of emotion tomorrow that would establish an advisor group to really oversee this process. There are a lot of buckets of eligibility, including mental health support behavior. How support Job training and placement, affordable housing, but also used development is critical. Right now we spend $280,000 per year per young person to incarcerate them here in Los Angeles County. We cage then Children right here at home, and we do it in a very expensive, right. Part of measure J will be looking at ways that we can provide opportunity supported development for young people outside of the juvenile halls in camps and in a way that produces healthy and thriving outcomes. What I can tell you is that there are some agencies that are prohibited. I'm using Measure J funding, and that is the Sheriff's Department, the district attorney's office, the cords or the probation Department. This is CareFirst valid initiative, and it's got to be rooted in structures of opportunity. What kind of groups are going to be behind the program's applying for measure J funding? Are these going to be government programs? Are we talking about like local nonprofits saying, Hey, we got what we think is a great idea to put. I don't know a a shelter or an after school program into effect in this part of the community. I think you'll see a mixed method approach their awesome county agencies and programs that are working incredibly effectively that need to be scaled up on specifically thinking of the office of Diversion and Retentions Transitional housing model. Which has slashed recidivism rate and proven much better outcomes than anything in the sheriff's Department of the Carcel system is done. We need to scale of all of those county infrastructures and behavior, health, mental health and have the support that we know are working, but also A new way of life. The entire city of coalition and others have shown community based reentry models that are working incredibly well. There's a lot of use development models as well. So I think we need to be thinking holistically. About where these phones Khun go because it's all about producing the best outcome for our communities. And if the government has structures in place to do that, we need to support that. This community has structure in place that air doing that that we definitely would support that as well. We need to be thinking holistically about this. Who's going to decide who gets the money. And who doesn't? Is it going to be all county leaders? Or you going to see members of the community involved in making those decisions as well? And a measure called for transparency and accountability and community representation. And I think the board of Supervisors, who are ultimately tasked with drafting the implementation process for this are very aware that community representation has to be at the table. There's ballot measure was put on by the people. Up specifically people who have been most impacted by our systems of Harmon. They should also have a seat at this decision making table and it's my intention that the Board of Supervisors intention to make sure that table is inclusive and has all the stakeholders. Who have a vested interest in this process. So are we talking about like, I don't know. Mental health professionals or community leaders or people who help to provide services to young kids. Are we talking about that? that? They They could could be be serving serving on on this this advisory advisory committee committee and and saying saying to to the the soups soups no, no, none none up. up. You You gotta gotta put put money money over over here. here. This This is is where where we we really really need need it. it. They They could could I I be. be. I I would would encourage encourage everyone everyone to to look look at at the the motion motion That's That's coming tomorrow. From what I've heard. There's a 17 Person Advisory committee with Five dedicated for community representation, five dedicated for those who work in insisting with Karen opportunity within the county, Already a couple of suits for labor organizations that are going to be impacted by The movement of funds in this way and really just trying to make sure that this table as all of the voices of the folks who need to be added the only voices who won't be added of those who are ineligible for Measure J Fund. Isaac Brian is executive director of the Black Policy Project. Thanks so much for joining us this morning. Really good to have you Thank you for having me. You're listening to morning
California Voters Pass Prop 22, Exempting Uber, Lyft From Reclassifying Drivers
"When zoom in now on the most expensive ballot measure in California history, and that's prop 22. It overwhelmingly passed here in California with 58% of the voters in favor of keeping ride share drivers labeled as independent contractors. And this proposition sought to exempt companies like Lift uber and Gord Ash from a state law that would have forced them to pay for the drivers healthcare their unemployment insurance. Other benefits basically treat them like regular workers. My guy's IQ is here. Now. He's the New York Times Tech reporter and author of the book, Super Pump. The Battle for the Battle for Uber. Welcome Back, Mike. Hey, Thanks for having me great. Tohave. You okay? So what do you make of this? They spent a ton of money to get this carve out from 85. It appeared to win. What does this mean that I'm I think it's it's pretty clear that, you know, spending a ton of money in a election on a really huge issue. Ballot measure seems to work, You know, I mean, as you alluded to in the intro, this is one of the most, if not the most expensive sort of campaign into passing. Ah, proposition in California's history. Uber lift and Gord Ash had earmarked. You know, upwards of $200 million on, you know this sort of marketing blitz, essentially positioning. Prop 22 as a way to support drivers when, in fact, it's really, really print basically really supportive of uber's existing business model where you keep them sort of contractors, So I think there are a number of things that went into it, including how the proposition was crafted what the language looked like. And what the sort of campaign male around it. Look, look right. So voters were may be confused by the messaging, basically saying that this would protect drivers. What did drivers want? Do we know? Yeah, And I mean, that's a fair sort of caveat. I don't think it was unilaterally that that people think that drivers should be employees necessarily. I do think it's actually pretty split. There are a number of of drivers who do believe that being considered a full time employee is the right thing for the amount of time they spent driving on the APP on DH. That's a strong Ah, it's a smaller but strong contingent of people. And then what Uber likes to say a lot. And really a lot of these companies is the vast majority of the people who were driving on the platforms are very part time just sort of do it on their off time. And this would be sort of unfair for them if they had to reclassify, so I think it's still mixed. But you it is probably fair to say that there are a lot of people who don't do it. Super super hardcore legs. Um, like the other contingent of people who are very vocal for those, And does this do anything to the larger law? 85 does it, weaken it in any other way? Sure. Well, I think there's a few things one. This is a carve out for thes particular good companies, But I do think it's sort of sets the groundwork for if there is a later challenge if there's potential reform around 85 in general, you know, especially if this is sort of proving Teo to people that they don't you know that this sort of classification isn't wanted. I do think that The other point I'd make is that away this built this proposition was designed. It's very hard to toe roll it back. I think you need a much larger degree of consensus to roll back than you otherwise would normally and that was very intentional. So it seems like the gig Cos they're pretty safe, at least for the future. Right, And they can use this in other states, right? They can point to this as ah, warning to other states. Yeah, 100 per cent. I think that the California has been the sort of harbinger of things to come. And you know a lot of the folks that the companies were basically saying, we need to nail this down here, so it's not used as a blueprint for the rest of the country. And conversely, that's what they're there seeming to do right now, basically. Like Isaac Newyorktimes Tech reporter and author of the book Super Pumped The Battle for Uber Mike. Thank you. Hey, thanks for having me again.
Why Words Matter: How Jewish Hermeneutics Introduces Words
"Let's talk about a couple of words and how the Jewish language and this would be the final message or the final podcast. If you will in our season one or season two. Yeah. She's in one of the juice of Jesus right season 2 of the podcast, correct? And after this, I think we're going to just dive into the gospels. Oh man. I'm excited about that. Yeah the gospel. Yes Mother season 3 just as a precursor. Just thought oh this out to people will probably come, you know, early 2021. We may kick it off maybe sooner if we're feeling like it, you know gospel. That's that's pretty exciting. NY weight loss. I'm excited about that. No, I just found out interest find out where we're going there. Just get. Okay. So let's take a couple of words. For example, the way the Jewish hermeneutics of hermeneutics is a stud. Art and interpretation of the study of the Bible. Okay. So how do words work and how does God use words? Okay. So let's take let's take the rules. We call it today in modern seminaries or training the rule of first use the rule of first used. They would call it the rule of one or the rule of first. Okay. So basically what they would say is anytime Jewish rabbis would say anytime you see a word introduced in the Hebrew Bible in the Old Testament as we would call it a not a little taller but in the Hebrew Bible whenever a word was introduced first that word sets the tone for how it's used for the rest of the Bible kind of overshadows gives a picture of how this war is going to be used for the rest of the Bible out because when they realize is God in his sovereignty God in his wisdom is giving us a word at a particular point in the encounter of a person wage. Okay. Okay. So I'm going to throw out some words today. So you're going to have to get ready. I'm going to say right now. I'm going to miss every single no no and those listening you can participate as well. Okay play along and do better than me. Okay. So the range of first use we're going to ask the question. When was the word love used who the first time the word love was she in the Bible in the in the Bible Acts? Cannot just throw a book out. Was it Genesis? Yes. Okay. Okay. We're rolling we're rolling now. That was low bar. I gotta say. Okay. Yeah. Well, obviously we're going to go with the big it's a big book too. But oh man, okay in Genesis, so we're narrowing it down. What else what person did it happen in the life of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob Joseph. I like multiple choice as much easier. I'll still get it wrong, but I'm going to go I'm going to go with Josh Abraham was the choice. Maybe I'm going with Abraham. Okay. It's in the life of a party of two for 2 to 4 to now, you've narrowed it down. I get a 75 Rams life is from the 12 chapter 12 Mark wage. All the way until the twenties Sky 25ish. Gotcha. So I have to pick a chat. You gotta pick a chap. Come on a bigger chapter man. I'm going to go with chapter 15 close. It's not even close to each chapter twenty-two. Well the story it's always going to start making sense when you hear this and there's listings with Isaac. Yeah. See I knew the story. You knew this story. I see how the location Genesis 22. Okay. And this is a pivotal Story by the way, if we're talking about the the the pivotal store in the life of Abraham, maybe in the life of the entire Torah is the sacrifice or the offering of Isaac to the Lord because it foreshadows the offering of God son Jesus as the sacrifice. Once it froze powerful. There's so many connections and maybe we'll have time to do that one day but there's so many connections between the two. Okay in Genesis twenty-two the word love is introduced for the very first time and basically what Scholars are saying, is this the way the fog Abraham loved his son was a unconditional sacrificial love that he had where he would do anything for his son and yet God called him to give up the very thing he loved he says his one and only son whom he loved God calls him to give up the very son. He let the one he waited for for twenty-five years the son who stole promise of the Covenant relationship the son who's going to be the descendant for all of the Nations to follow one day this son. Hm the one son and God says that kind of love is the same kind of love I have from my one and only son John chapter 3 verse 16 for God so loved the world history and then say God love to where it says God so loved the world that we had that a lot of translations because this is a this is an amazing love. Yeah. This is a an endless love God so loved the world. He gave us only begotten son and so is dead. She's not in the Greek, but God loved the world. He gave his only begotten son. Whoever believes in him shall not perish. We know that verse. Okay. So the first occurrence of the word love is in Genesis twenty-two and it gives us a picture of or shadowing of Love. Okay, let's do another word. Are you ready for another word? Yes. Second word is going to be the word worship worship now before you think about worship and why you think there's a lot of places in the Old Testament where you can see the word worship and people are worshipping worship doesn't just mean singing. Let's just let's just get that out the way right? We're not talking about worship songs. You can worship through song but that's one of various ways. Yeah, what are some other ways we worship we worship with our time worship with our time to give our time to suffer. Yes, our attention Okay, what else our resources money money? Yeah. I mean, I'm going to go to time talent and treasure just just an easy one. Yeah, the Triple-T that's right. The Triple-T the way we sang. What is there another way we read the Bible dead. We read the Bible. That's an Hour Worship prayers and act of worship serving which already serving is a big one service is the word is the word worship used in Rome is the connection of Romans chapter 12 verse. He says this is your spiritual act of worship or service to God. So service and worship are similar. Okay, and what I mean is worship isn't just an abstract thing worship is an actual wage is something you do in action. Okay. So let's go with worship. What chapter? Well, let's start with the book again. What book is the word worship found in for the first time? I'm going to get a Genesis again. That's a web page doesn't winter a lot of them to go. Can I go with Adam and Eve on this one? Here's another sidebar question you can but hold on, okay. It's interesting that a lot of these words are found in Genesis because the very word Genesis means what in Hebrew who? That's a good question. I don't know the answer to First beginnings beginnings, I think yeah, maybe I did know the answer that I was thinking about the word the word Genesis sit indoors or beginning. I'm not suggesting its birth or beginning. Yes boss. And so basically you have the beginning of all things the beginning of the world the beginning of man the beginning of the nation everything's found in Genesis. Okay, beginning of the language. Okay. So Genesis is good. You're going to go off now. I'm going to go with I'm going to go with a Domani. I'm gonna go that mm. That's going to be wrong. Now my dearie office. Keep going. My next guess is going to be for worship. Is it going to be I guess I'm going to go with Noah long that's going to be a hard note to that's a hard one. That's that's gonna really hard strike. That's right. No, it did probably worship God but not using the word Worsham.

Troll Watch: How Tech Is Cracking Down On Election Disinformation
"Years ago, Fake news loomed large over the U. S. Presidential election troll farms linked to Russia turned out fictitious stories online and completely made up articles written Well, maybe bite. Macedonian teenagers went viral. It's impossible to know exactly what effect has had on the results, but it certainly was big news. So what is the picture looked like this time around. BBC Trending Sze Sam Jr has been investigating, starting with a chat with a struggling writer from New York State. My name is Colin Munro. Would I work as a freelance writer? I read news all day constantly. Collinwood was delighted to be writing about politics for a new website called Peace Data ahead of this year's U. S election, even though he wasn't getting paid, and the editors of the site were enthusiastic about what he was sending in. They loved it. They were very accepting of my writing who you're dealing with is it was the same person. He has an odd name, but he said he was a no assistant editor to the organization. He had his own linked and things of that nature. It looked legit. But one day recently, he found out the whole thing was a sham. Colin had been writing for a far left new site created and run by Russians. To put all of this in context. Let's roll back the clock For years. Fake news can have really world consequences. Facebook was paid at least $100,000 by Russian troll farms for advertising. The 2016 election was beset by fake news. Completely made up stories apparently produced by Russian organizations and amplified on social media. But this time US citizens have become unwitting foot soldiers in the battle. Recruited by small scale websites run the authorities and Facebook say from Russia. The legitimate looking editors behind the site weren't even really people. So, says disinformation expert Camille Francois Grafica. So if you look very closely add those faces. You realize they're not exactly symmetrical. So sometimes one of the editor would have one earring and then the other earring just didn't match. Those air old Council signs that the picture could have been generated with the technology that a century creates a new face from scratch. The peace data editors were completely made up. They're photos were computer generated constructions. Back in 2016 so called fake news ran rampant with fictional headlines like Pope Endorses Donald Trump. This time around the big social media companies thwarted this operation before it could really pick up steam. But there's a new problem coordinated disinformation campaigns that are entirely homegrown. Isaac Stanley Becker is a reporter for The Washington Post, and over the summer he got a tip off from a concerned relative. Someone got in touch and said that they're teenage nephew in Arizona had been posting really curious messages on social media messages that led them to believe that their family member might have been hacked by the Russians. In fact, the teenager along with many others, was posting on behalf of a right wing American lobby group Turning Point USA for a fee. The messages cast doubt on the severity of the Corona virus pandemic on even spread myths about voter fraud. Money was changing hands. It was nowhere disclosed that this was part of a highly organized but secret is operation. Run by a very well heeled pro charm organization, the marketing firm running the operation was banned from Facebook but turning point themselves avoided punishment. Some point to the discovery of these campaigns as a good news story. Social media firms caught sleeping in 2016 have stepped up their game. But others, including Isaac Stanley, Becca think the spread of falsehoods has become absolutely endemic in American politics. The way we campaign and the way we discussed politics, it's just infuse with disinformation. It's become normal. As one expert put it to me in 2016. We saw Macedonian teenagers being paid to coordinate and conduct. This sort of activity and now patrol farm is in Phoenix. It's right here at home. There's
"isaac" Discussed on The Front Seat with Dallin and Isaac
"Welcome back to another episode where so excited it's been two weeks we need some intro music. Do you feel that? I'm kind of that car sale. We got that car center the beginning but like while we're talking, we need like some some. Get excited Muzak some smooth jazz deputy for some smooth jazz upcoming podcasts everyone. Anyway. We'll come back to another episode the fancy. Rebelling Isaac. It's been a little while. It's certainly has, and that is definitely our fault yet we first of all, thank you everybody. We have actually gotten a lot of messages and feedback from people who have missed US the last couple of weeks asking us to. Why we're not doing an episode and saying that they miss are episodes that actually makes me really happy. Thank you for your support like also sorry for letting you down. But I've I've been surprised by the amount of people who noticed that we stopped recording podcasts and said something about it, and that actually makes me feel good. So thank you first of all, for that, reaching out to US sporting US liking us. When to be better at supporting our own podcast. I feel like you guys are much better at. Like spreading it, I don't know that's the only way podcast spreads anyway is by the word of mouth and telling your friends about it like we're not even promoting her own podcast we need to be better that, but we really appreciate all of your support. So thank you. Yeah, we got really really busy. With school and work in life and. It's it's tough. It's tough recording every week to find new things to talk about. I don't know I don't think that's true. We've got a hold John Norris list of stuff to talk about. Like we have we've got plenty to talk about we're not GONNA get through. Yeah. I. Don't know I just don't go weeks and weeks stuff to talk about. I think I think it's kind of. Me Well I don't know this is what this is. My wh I mean we tried to record last week and we had a huge list of stuff to talk about interesting topics topics that the. I mean I was excited to talk about, but it just felt fake. When was tried to record it, we tried to record a few different podcasts actually last week like multiple different episodes with multiple different topics and stuff, and it just felt forced and not authentic, and I think at least for me that's probably because of I just wasn't a good mental state to be recording podcast. It just felt fake it wasn't what I wanted to be. Talking about kind of a lot of other stuff going on in my life. And so yeah, just listening to the recordings we're making just seemed. Lame. Wasn't excited about him. Yeah. But now we're back. So hopefully, today will be a good episode. Yeah definitely. So we've decided that we are going to start quitting podcast every other Thursday for a couple reasons. First reason we could make it. I'm hoping we can have really really good episodes. Right? We can work on it a little bit more spunky. We already got good episodes. Reeling really good episode there. There's some things we want to talk about that. We don't have time during the week to research lake that we'd like more time to kind of prepare and stuff, but we feel like we can't and we just go with something that's a little bit easier because we haven't had time to to research and prepare. So yes, you're right you're right and so and to like school and work it's just really busy right now. So every other Thursday that's what we're going to switch to. And we're going to commit to that would definitely doing that. You can rely on that. So every other Thursday. Yeah. So every other Thursday and then that's going to be US talking and then every once in a while in another episode where it's like I guess that's what I'm thinking. So every every other Thursday, you're gonNA hear US talking. And randomly not very consistent. But just when we're filling guest at, yeah we've got some people who wanna come on in who WanNa talk about different things with us and we're really excited about it. But again, we need a little bit more time to kind of get that prepared just just between the two of us the this is become a lot of work that. Two weeks will help us to get better quality episodes out. So with that being said, we are now start into the topics that we want to talk about this week. GonNa get got a lot I. We're GONNA go and. Talk about procrastination. which is something we have dealt with very much. I mean I guess that's of why we didn't really have. The last two weeks. Recorded 'cause we cause of procrastination knowing how to deal with that I mean Kinda last we sat here on Wednesday night recording. We could not record. Okay. Two reasons we haven't really recorded one procrastination and then to 'cause. We were not in a mental state to record as of last week there were there were two different things, right so so that's actually are two topics that we want to talk about today is I will talk about the procrastination, which is what led us to not record two weeks ago, and then we'll move into authenticity and talking about what's been honest with yourself and all that kind of stuff, which is what led us to not record last week. Yeah. Yeah. So first of all procrastination..

A lesson from Trump's taxes: An underfunded IRS is outmatched
"And so part of the reason that president trump has been able to pace a little taxes at least according to the Times is because his businesses have lost so much money they've lost more than a billion dollars and he. Has, used the carry forward provisions among other things to reduce his tax bill for years and years. You know when you have business losses, it's like you have like money in the tax bank that you can use to pay less taxes in the future. Now, originally back in nineteen eighteen when carry-forward I started if you lost money one year, you could use that loss to reduce your taxes for next year but only for that one year and then a while later Congress said you know what you can carry over losses. For two years then Congress extended it further to fifteen years and eventually congress said you can spread your losses out. You can carry losses forward for as long as you want forever President Trump signed the bill that made that change into law in two thousand, eighteen and Isaac says there are good reasons to have this provision in the tax code it can be helpful for struggling businesses. So on the one hand, you kind of don't want your tax system to bankrupt a viable business just because it has a bad year. Right. So that's one. So it's useful but also but but depending on, you know how clever you are about your investments and how you go about booking what counts as a loss. There's lots of room to kind of gain with creative accounting. It is it is wildly open to abuse. So carry-forward is sometimes a reasonable useful thing and sometimes something that people and businesses abuse to pay less taxes than they should, and there are people at the irs whose job it is to figure out for every tax return that uses this provision you know which is this reasonable or is this abuse but as it says, the funding that pays for the IRS to enforce carry forward rules and the rest of the tax code, it has been cut for years it's been. A pretty substantial. block of the Republican Party in Congress has lined up behind the idea of really depriving the irs of teeth especially, the enforcement arm that that goes after. The rich and just like think about how expensive it can be to audit the taxes of the ultra rich fridge people do not have simple straightforward tax returns. They have a ton of paperwork fancy lawyers in. So look at the story we read The New York Times about the president's taxes right and and it was a picture that they have to assemble by looking at hundreds of different tax returns for hundreds of different entities. Now imagine having to do that for every even for one in ten rich people in the United States right Obviously, it can't be done. Except there's one congressional committee that specifically looks into the super-rich but only in some cases but but. One of those cases use the case of president trump. There was this one paragraph in the time story I mean there were a lot of paragraphs in the time story and a lot of it was interesting but there was one paragraph in particular that really I wanted to understand better. So the paragraph was related to this seventy three million dollar tax refund that Donald Trump apparently got in two thousand and ten and that he and the government are still fighting over. Okay. I'm going to read this paragraph it says quote refunds require. Blah. Blah Blah in opinion of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation Blah Blah Blah and tax law requires the committee to weigh in on all refunds larger than two. Million dollars to individuals. So what this paragraph is saying is there is a committee in Congress that has to give an opinion every single time the irs is about to send some rich person, a multimillion dollar tax refund as I read this and I thought like why you know what is going on you have questions. So I called Dave Norton he's a corporate lawyer who used to work at this committee, the Joint Committee on taxation, and he told me this is not a normal kind of congressional committee. You know it doesn't right laws. It doesn't hold hearings where lawmakers ask questions that are really more like comments and the joint committee staff is. A non-partisan expert staff of economists. Lawyers. Accountants. So it's like it's like Congress's. Team of tax nerds. That is a good way to put it. Exactly, right mostly the nurse on this committee figure out what different changes to the tax code would mean for the government and for the economy, you know how different potential tax tweaks would work. But a few of them go into work everyday and review giant tax refunds that the IRS is about to send out it's it's interesting because it's so one by one right you don't think of Congress as doing. Anything on like we'RE GONNA get every big tax refund that goes out in America. But that is what they're doing here and I agree it is It is pretty unusual. It might be unique in terms of something that the Congress would get involved with Congress got involved with this back in the nineteen twenties basically because they didn't trust the person who was overseeing the IRS, the Treasury Secretary Andrew Melon. Melon was one of the richest men in America. Also, one of the biggest tax payers in America had all these business interests that he held onto he was treasury secretary, and so congress was like wait you're the boss of the IRS and you owe all these taxes and you have investments and all these businesses that the IRS is supposed to be taxing that seems very shady. You know we want to make sure that you're not just having the irs and you and your pals massive tax refunds. So what we congress are going to do is we're going to pass a law that requires this Joint Committee to review big refunds. Congress basically said tax nerds keep an eye on these rich guys in the refunds, and so here we are almost one hundred years later and the tax nerds. They are still keeping an eye on these guys, and that's why in two thousand eleven trump's refund made its way to this committee. Apparently, the committee reviews hundreds of these refunds a year. So it's you know. Sort of, but there are a couple of things in this case in the case of Donald Trump's giant refund that are unusual. One unusual thing is typically the committee reviews the refunds before they get sent out to tax payers make sense. Yeah. It would think you would think but there is this special corner of the law and it actually applies to sort of the twin Sarah of what you were talking about earlier in the show the twin of the carry forward provision right where you can carry forward losses. The twin is Keri back. Here's how Carrie backwards if you lose money in the year, you're filing your taxes for now instead of carrying those losses forward as you do in carry forward, you can look back to. The past, you can say, look a few years ago. I was making tons of money I was on the apprentice and I paid tons of taxes, and so what I WANNA do is I want to carry my losses from the present back into the past and I want you to give me a refund for all of those taxes I paid a few years ago. Right so that is what president trump in fact was doing in this case when he got this giant seventy-three, million dollar refund and the special provision of the law that applies here is actually something they call a quickie refund and so innocent. Cute little seventy-three, million dollar tax refund and what happens with a quickie refund is the IRS. Okay. We will send you the refund before we've done a thorough evaluation of your claim and you have to promise that. If we ultimately decide that your claim for this refund, not you're going to give us back the money. So that's what happened here. That is thing number one that was unusual to quickey refined I seventy three million dollars. Yes. Okay. So thing number two that is unusual is just how long it has taken to figure out whether the refund was legit. You know whether the president in fact qualified for the refund under the law so Typically. The Joint Committee Clears Clears Refund reviews. In about three weeks maybe a little bit more than three weeks in a kind of standard run of the mill case they've says that some really complicated cases might take a few months to figure out but the president's case is still unresolved and it went to the committee nine years ago years they've says, he never saw anything take anywhere near that long when he worked at the Committee I never saw years Adam okay. So a case that went on for years would be very unusual in your experience. That's fair. Say yes and you know it makes sense that once Donald Trump becomes president trump the case would become exceptional and more complicated and take longer but this was already going on for years before that happened and so it's not entirely clear why it's taking so long. So Okay we've been through what's going on with the president's case, and also where does this weird committee review come from The one last thing I wanted to ask Dave was does it even makes sense to have a special Congressional Committee Review You know individual tax refunds you sort of worked on both sides you you were describing working for clients whose refunds are held up by the committee you've worked on the committee holding up People's refunds as you study them. Do you feel like it's useful? I do think just from a from a revenue perspective the taxpayer gets huge bang for the buck out of the C. T. Refund review process it costs almost nothing to run. It's you know as I said, just a few people and they can be counted upon to spot millions and millions and millions of dollars of potential mistakes. The spotting thing. Hey, look this is this million here million there at this shouldn't be going out for this this this reason
Man dies from eating too much black licorice
"This young man and in Boston, everybody Boston kids, all right. Was just killed by black licorice. Whoa! What What did her strangle him with one of those ropes of licorice? No, but that would seem more likely that that's how he die. He actually died from eating too much black. What? Just build up a black licorice that's poisonous. Apparently it is therea. So I like black licorice. I don't know about other people. But if I'm picking A snack food. I like it. I like a black licorice. I don't love the taste The problem with it. I get the the soft eaten kind that they sell at some of the healthier story. You can get a whole foods or new leaf. But it's also feels like so Nick. That after about three or four of them, you start to go. I don't know if my body can actually even process this. It feels so. All right. Golden's It feels country right, like you're going to gum up the works with that. That's definitely going to plug a hole somewhere. I definitely only have a couple of them when I choose that for a snack. So apparently black liquors can be dangerous. There's a 54 year old guy in Boston, who recently died because he overdosed on the stuff. His heart stopped. They say that you have a warning label. Like how much did he have to eat for this man? I'm going to tell you. He ate about a bag and a half every day For a few weeks. Black licorice is filled with something called You can do it glides arisen acid, Eliza Ristic. Glad I like lice arising. Its goal is horrific. Glaser or Isaac? Acid. Ah, and that's dangerous in high concentrations. Where's throws nutrients in your body out of whack. If you eat a little as two ounces a day for two weeks, it can kill you. And it's especially true for people over 40. So stick to candy. That's You know, solid p ece, quite frankly, like licorice had no idea in large quantities can kill you. This guy died. Jesus and I love

"Again, I'm a little bit opposed to the idea because I think you might start blocking people out. Just based on personality tests but maybe maybe. Maybe a personality trait to I have is I take things to an extreme and so I when I believe something, I apply it to the extreme really quickly, and so that's why I'm so afraid of personality tests because I'm just GonNa Start. If I let that into my life, I'm going to start applying it to an extreme categorizing everybody in shutting some people out and accepting more people more just based on test results and I, don't like that. But maybe that's just me maybe other people with different personality types don't do that right Now, this has some layers to it. S Some layers to it but point is there some actual science tobacco a lot of these tests? My apologies for. Virginia just based on. The red, yellow light blue whatever because there really is just some dude who wrote a book. Honestly. So. There is another thing that I thought about personality tests that I want to share before we end and then. You're going to share something that McKenna said we're GONNA, end with that I don't I don't get the last word in this. Yeah but. But. There is something that I thought about this week another. So when it comes to personnel has thought about Harry Potter and I thought about the houses distorted into and I thought about Harry right when he's getting the sorting hat placed on him the sorting hat is better than a personality test man it knows everything about you it can read your brain. When it's placed on your head like. Is better than science okay and sorting hat. Wants to place Harry into slithering right. But Harry goes nope. I'm going to griffin door that is how I want all to live. You know what? I mean. That's the thing about personality tests I'm like, yes they might help you might show you some things about your personality and was Harry similar to a of slithering ways absolutely. Was He super similar voldemort definitely was a big plot point. But he wanted to be griffin door. So he was griffin door that that's that's my thoughts about like I want to choose I want to be in control more. So. Yes. So that kind of leads into the last thing that I wanted to talk about. So it is one more quote from McKenna. cintas really. Good email. All the more the future from her two and it talks about how? Regarding. Personality tests It's just a quote. It's not hundred percent accurate sake. Expect that you're crazy. It's only a label if you make so. Let's the one thing boom rousted. I do. I, do completely gate with is. For me it's important not to myself or other people. Yeah. That's important for me to but. Yeah. This was hopefully get episode hopefully, you'll learn that. We were wrong. I was something to learn. That it's okay to be wrong, right? Yes. Being wrong is great. Being wrong is great because you learn more. And especially, what's especially great is having awesome people around you friends and family. Who will with you? About things that they think differently than you and that is the best thing for me when when I have conversations with friends about things that we disagree on actually love it. Yeah. So I'll put all the instructions for the discord server in the. Description. Please join I. Really do hope we hope that we can build in a good community. Yeah. It's GonNa be fun. It's an experiment for it's to be a party so so Again. Follow us on social media front-seat seat by down Lazic. Keeping Safe Watch out for the COVID have good. Week. Scenic them..

"Experiences that we can contribute to. The discussion on politics philosophy or whatever it is. So all of you are qualified to talk about something that you're passionate about and we want to have people coming on as guests. So we'll probably start doing that expect that soon. So, hopefully. The discord will work out pretty well, if you do not feel comfortable doing that or just don't want to we definitely still taking comments text comments whatever comments. Please send emails semis whatever yes, we're up for it. So sorry, the I'd do that in the took a lot longer that was good if you do have any problems getting on there though. Just shoot us an email yep yep. We're is, is GONNA be a work in progress, but we're really excited about it and any suggestions that you guys have about how you grow this community and make it what we want to be sending more way. So back to the. Back to topic now. took. or at MIT six. That was good. All right. So yeah. The reason we wanted to start having discussions is because we got so many responses about specifically about personality tests about some other stuff too but we won't really go into that right now the one that I want to start with was McKenna and Kennison Does A. Very good e mail, an excellent email, which we probably will go over more aspects of that email later. But one thing that she said in that email, she really likes personality tests. She was not digging my opinions on personality tests and one thing that she said was a while she asked me you actually taken the Myers Briggs tests like with an open mind lake. Checked it out and read through the results and I'm like well boom roasted no I haven't. To be fair no haven't. So this week I went ahead and did that I took the test and I will say. I was very surprised. A lot of what I said about personality tests before still applies about confirmation biases and letting the test to find you rather than you defining the tests and I still think that happens a lot However, there are some positive aspects of personality tests. So Jay have recently discovered at one of those being. As I took the test, some of those questions were really thought provoking and they really lead to lot of like good introspection like as I read this questions, I was like, wow, that is a very particular question like the they weren't just I. Guess my experience with personality tests has been like that red yellow, blue white whatever thing it's just like your basic questions and it's really obvious which bubble leads to which personality and you can just like whatever. But no these questions were actually pretty deep and. Made me think about myself in consider myself a lot more than we had before like. Questions that I never would have thought to ask myself but they were good to ask myself right. So I will I will give it back. Yes. So I mean I took it again, I've taken it before a couple times too I. Know I took it for class last year. And I mean. I don't know the hard thing that I have is a lot of stuff as applied. Any right. With my stuff. But a lot of it I applies to everybody. Yep. which I'm honestly I think my personal opinion..

"Welcome back to another episode, the front seat with Dylan and Isaac Today. We are going to get right into it. We're revisiting topic from last time, which is personality. It was Last week that that topic I mean, we've done some pretty interesting. Some pretty intense episodes. We get a fifteen minute episode about black lives matter but somehow. Personality tests has been our most controversial topic that we've covered so far we got some. Got Some mail, I I call it hate mail Dahlan things. It's not hate mail not he pretty sure it's hate mail it's constructive criticism your constructive criticism whatever. So anyway. Yeah we're GonNA talk about that. We we got a lot of responses back about personality tests. Starting from. Okay hold up well. I do WanNa hit on something real quick. So we've been trying to figure out a way that. All of us including US and you the listeners can all have like an online place to talk about your ideas right. We, we've been working on this and that was like. We've kind of figured it out by like the emailing right up. That was our first stop. Yeah. That's what people are doing right now what we've had so far is everybody just basically sends us a message or an email or voice recording or something about their thoughts about whatever topics, and then we just talk about it on the next episode which is worked out. Okay. But this is what led us to this is we've gotten so money so many responses from so many different people about this topic that it's Kinda got out of our hands. Yeah. So couple reasons one. People like to shy right. Everybody likes to share this absolutely even if like. They don't agree with that. So we've been like really trying to figure it out I was like maybe a website is idea I don't have a website. because. One. That's water frequent work in two I really don't think we can be what I want to be right now I don't think so. Thought of a facebook page, but then still don't really think that's what I want. We're might be going somewhere with that to where we're trying to figure this out, and if you guys have any suggestions for how we can create more of a community where people can talk to each other and not just through US please send those in a facebook group is still kind of on the table. So what we've come up with because we do have a good idea I can. So. We started discord server and for people who don't know 'cause I didn't know. It's basically just like an online chat room type deal. Yeah. Yeah it's it's a chat room kind of, but it's separated into like different categories and topics and things everybody will have like I don't know a profile on narrow lottery probably might already have discord but it functions kind of like a comment section but also kind of like a chat room at the same time. We're thinking we're GonNa have a room or a page for each of our episodes or freelance topics that we covered. Right. So if you have some opinions or some thoughts, you'd like something or you want to share something you want to critique something about our black lives matter episode you could go in there and go to the black lives matter episode page on the discord, and there will be people on there who will be talking about their ideas and sharing ideas..

"The goal the a I can then studied this person every person individually and people as a whole with all the information coming into it from facebook and decide what things. Result in a certain consequence. So the question that the program of the I ask answer is, what is our goal? What do we want this ai to try to do? You could say you want to give people the most popular videos or whatever. But that's not gonNA work either. Necessarily because if you just give popular videos You'RE NOT GONNA get any of the. Controversial ones because half the population. On any controversy is GONNA hate that video. While the other half is going to like the video. So that doesn't really work. But if you just go with wants to get the most comments or something or the ones that get the most likes or shares or whatever. And you're trying to share those as much as possible. Then you risk only getting the controversial things because people to comment and share more on things that they're angry about or have strong opinions about and you're not GonNa get anything else on social media. Things that are in we're talking we're talking facebook. This is just the Isaac understanding of the topic. Point is. What they've decided, what these programmers have decided for these algorithms is that the goal is to maximize the amount of time that you're on your device on their APP. And so. The AI looks at what links, what shares, what things it can put on your screen. That will. Do they have resulted in the past in you spending more time on the APP, and that will probably in the future result in spending more time in the APP can do that a lot better than human humans, camera guests that stuff. But Anyway, I can just take that data and use it right. So if that's what the is doing which it is. Is a couple of things. Number one a person at this point doesn't even know anymore have a is deciding what to send to people to make them spend more time. There's no no output that the I here's all these variables in. Here's what I'm using. Our decided to send Isaac a video about Dr Phil today those and it turns in like a person doesn't know that's happening the computer does, but it's too complex for a person to take that data out. So at this point, the his program itself too much for personal, you will understand it. Is. Acceptable interesting stuff. Hope. So hope you like it. So, what their results in. As the fines if you're clicking if you're hovering over. Controversial things if you're interacting with controversial things more if you're. Like an okay. Here's why not just controversial things it's controversial things that you agree with. Or things it are likely to make you mad or want to comment something but you're not getting stuff from the other side because stuff from the other side score right past it. Right you. You're. You're sick of that and you don't want that. You WanNa share the stuff that you agree with and so. facebook seeing that these people respond positively to all things that they already like and so it just keeps feeding you more stuff that you like because that's what's going to get you spending more time on the APP. And so now facebook is turned into. One giant bias affirming filter where you can get on facebook and you can come off facebook one, hundred percent believing that everybody else you know and everybody around you believes the exact same as you do and that such a dangerous way of doing the world..

"Get into some harder questions because we have this desire to just be consistent to not look like hypocrites to always come try to be the same person. When we're around other people, we answer those questions, symphony personality tests. Once once we start defining ourselves by. Some personalities some dude invented the is. Like has no actual scientific base in anything. then. We become that because we don't want to change your mind. So we become less likely to change your minds as the true with labels general once we'd label ourselves anything we are way less likely to your mind I. Think we need way. Less, that way as a society. Okay. So I was just thinking about why you're saying that. But humans always need to label things right I. think that's human nature to explain that is also human nature. We categorize everything good point so like I agree the science behind him as kind of flawed and like people change and you should identify but like. I kinda think. That people are GonNa like try to label themselves regard. Yeah, we always try to label ourselves and that's probably true human nature trail to explain these. So, maybe it's not. I'm with you. I'm defining yourself by the labels. Okay. Not being willing to change. Yeah. You can label yourself as long as you understand that those labels are fluid. Yeah I. I would not ski. Okay. Okay. That's a good point I like that. So Maybe taking your personality test every day no actually personality tests are. Now you can find other labels personnel because I'm still opposed to frontier personnel just fine. Go for the result seriously no. Just don't let them define who you are if you don't WanNa be that way. Okay that's my. That's my thought. Okay. All right. I like that that's that's less. Scorched Earth.

We've also gotten some messages in from viewers. You calm viewers calm. Listeners do their listeners from listeners. You don't watch us. We got some messages from listeners that we want to share, and we also got some new ideas less less week. We talked about burnout right and since we talked about Brennan, we've been thinking a lot more about burnout and also we've had some experiences this week that have kind of a definitely changed my mind about burnout pretend being. So we'll start with that. We're GONNA revisit that. Yes so this week we have just been like we've been saying pretty busy. Honestly it's been. It's been pretty busy week yet with with Collagen and work and stuff we've been like there's always something to be doing it. It's we're in full swing and it's a lot. And so we're trying to figure out like where's the balance right? Like what is the priorities here? And we've been out a lot with roommates we go pretty well with them which is nice. Yeah. Yeah. We got really really lucky with roommates even though we talked about this before like we don't really all of us are super different. Like really get very different ideas, very different opinions but we we'd love like we stay up to lake one in the morning just sitting talking about politics and philosophy and disagreeing with each other and also agreeing with each other but like nobody ever feels offended. I enjoy. So like this is what I live for deep talks in. Pretty much all of us like have a different opinion like it's not just like one person's just like well, I'm GonNa play the devil's advocate. There's no like all of us have our different opinions. Yes we have the reasons we back to Austin and there's no set groups either not like off the roommates are always on always GonNa take this half premature I was GonNa take the site it's like everyone which is Probably, a lot of people assume would happen. Honestly that's what is it wouldn't happen. But like us to they're going to go down or having the same idea which is not true. No I think if people know as they know that we're pretty much not going to agree but true see look at us disagreeing about whether or not we would agree. That's true. But so that that leads into this next part so. We were I mean Monday was a holiday and already burned out of this week Lemme tell you. That's a move. Monday it's already this week. This week's over Monday I was done. I mean what it was. All right but we were just like hanging out with roommates just kinda chilling. and. Then another rate read over some friends.

I think it's more that I was afraid of the idea scripting. Yeah, it took me a while to realize that did like get that in my head. But I guess I'm afraid of scripting is I think our conversations are so cool because like just go cuz they just go and off and like you were saying this conversation that we've had about this. It's not over yet. We're not done figuring this out how we're supposed to go with this podcast. But like it took us a couple days. We had to process video. I think this through right? I think that's how long conversations go. We don't agree on a lot of things but we we sit and we like think it through and we talked it through and as we bounce ideas off each other we kind of Come Away with a better understanding overall. Oh, yeah, no matter what no matter what well like we we talked about this honestly for a couple of days and I think by the end we kind of realized we were both saying the same thing. It was just my perspective. I was focusing more on the marketing on the making it seem more like accessible accessible. That's a good word more accessible where Isaac was wanting it more like a fantic and like just true to us how we really are but at the same thing we were saying the exact same thing that neither one of us wants to stray from who we really are right we clearly had the same idea. We just had different perspectives and different focus and different realities like a month. And so that was that was interesting so that kind of changed my opinion a little bit on like that really like it was interesting cuz we were talking about like what we wanted and we had that was a perfect example..

"Welcome to five minutes in churches hosted by Dr Stephen. Nicholson where we take a little break from the presence to go exploring the past travel back in time as we look the people events and even the places that have shaped the story of Christianity. This is our story. family history. Let's get started on this episode five minutes in Church history. Let's talk about a scientist Sir. Isaac Newton. He was born in sixteen forty three. He died in seventeen twenty seven he was actually born in the exact same year of the death of Galileo. He was born in originally humble circumstances. His father died three months before he was born in sixteen sixty one he went off to Cambridge. He had a grasp of Latin and a very curious mind. He would pass the time sketching clocks and windmills and other kinds of gadgets. Once he got to Cambridge he studied astronomy. This was the era of Copernicus and Kepler and of course he studied the classic Philosophers Aristotle and Plato. He kept his notebooks and in one of them. He wrote amicus Plato. Amicus Aristotle's Maga's Amici Veritas. Plato is my friend. Aristotle is my friend. Truth is my best friend. And he also let Cambridge embarked on studying mathematics. In fact he would come to the way in this field he is credited for inventing the study of Calculus as he called it the calculus of infant hassles and it was also while he was at Cambridge that he studied the motion of the moon and the planets and he recognized this force. That was acting on these planets orbit. He was discovering what would come to be called the law of gravity. He would go on to publish. His books is famous book in Seventeen. O four the book called optics and in There. He puts forth his theory of colors. A very interesting a young student in the colonies at the College of Connecticut. We know it as Yale. University would get a hold of Isaac Newton's book optics and he devoured it. This of course is Jonathan Edwards. And he wrote his own little scientific paper he called of light rays and this was all from. Reading Isaac Newton and Edwards draws this corollary from just being amazed at how the actual physical human eye processes light rays. This is what Edwards had to write hence the infinite art that was exercised in the formation of the eye that has given it such an exquisite sense that it should perceive the touch of those few rays of the least fixed stars which enter the eye which all put together won't amount to the million million million million million to part of the least moat of such an exquisite sense that it should distinctly perceive an image upon the retina that it is not above the eighty million millionth part of an inch wide. That has so nicely polished the retina that it should receive so small a picture upon it when the least pro Tuba Rinse or an evenness would utterly destroy and confound it here's Edwards amazed at the human eye but far more amazed at the God who created the human eye and the God who created the universe and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for Edwards and it was Isaac Newton who unlocked this for so many other people as Alexander Pope. The poet has it that nature and nature's laws lay hidden by night. God said let Newton be and then there was light Newton as the father of modern science. Believed that no way would science give us less room for God or somehow make less space for God and understanding of him? In fact it was the exact opposite for Isaac Newton. The more he studied God's universe the more he was led to acknowledge and worship God. Newton once said gravity may very well explained the motion of the planets for the can't explain who set the planets in motion. God governs all things and God knows all that is or all that can be known. That's the Great Isaac Newton and I'm Steve Nichols and thanks for listening to five minutes in churches for more information or to listen to past episodes please visit five minutes in church.
