"Talking about and then it was just a stewardess is that that's supposed to look like that. Is that normal. And it's just like you know a little seems of pull the in the Of course you know the the pain. Lean inside the plane isn't what fucking the playing together. I'm not immediate. But i'm still fucking kinda like i dunno superstitious like. I don't need that. You basically had william shatner from like the toilet with with you like pointing out the thing on the wing. And getting everybody riled up. I had a. I had that quick on on that too when we were coming in. The only thing that was kind of a scary was. Were about to land nova sudden. We felt a school of back up and the and the it gets on. The mike can just like a Sorry about that guys like we're we're gonna we're gonna take another try at that. We went to this huge circle. And i'm thinking like what the fuck is this like a rookie. Like this guy. Couldn't even land the first time now. We're going to land. And my and i'm thinking that i have in my travel case. All these jerk socks. What did they find the wreckage. Like all this kind of stuff like embarrassing stuff left over like tracing it back to me this. This is how i'm going to end but you do. Have that thought in your mind like the. This is going to be how it goes. Why did the pilot even mitt. That i mean it was like their own. Just go about your business. Don't tell me you're a fuck up. Oh man it's funny. Mentioned that william shatner thing because we were right in the wing and those two fell asleep. And i looked out the window and a all you saw was the wing it was black and then a flashing red light and i really wanted to like film some of it so i can make where i can just kind of splice in like my face or something but added them. Yeah and then put on like a guerilla outfit. Dance on the wing. Ooh yeah that would that might need to get mud. Burgi to help me with that level of Video editing but yes what i'm saying you got connections story real. I would add twenty. That guy wakes up. And i'm leaned over him and his wife's lap trying to film the wing. You're not in hindsight. I should have gone for it. Yes instinct but Enough about the the the hard times of bucko yes i i. I had the hard times of. I didn't have any travel issues. But i didn't want to the because we are going into. This is actually the intro for roadkill interview right. yeah we want to get a little We get off on some personal issues but but yeah the koran q. Live we did. We did the live. Podcast it was a half hour. Show live there at the at the expo. That'll room setup for for live episodes. I'm not saying that well. So they had a room set up at the expo. Basically for for live podcast. Ours was at i think. three thirty. With ron keel is a guest so the three of us are are basically you know in front of this huge crowd. I was very pleased with the attendance. Yeah it ha- it seated. Maybe thirty something to say and fifty. Whatever but i didn't see People were it was standing room only. Yeah well i think. I think to me was standing. Because he didn't want to it. It was a one hundred percent capacity plus fire code issues. Yeah yeah yeah we got shut down for for too many people sure. Yeah but can i give you a little bit of Y travel things. But i just want to a little bit of behind the scenes to people because you know the shows up the this this interview show that shows also about us. Yeah oh yeah. It's all about us man. People will soon find out when they hear on c. Four going to the interview with ronco. It's all going to tie tie into this at the end of this law. Low bit. But i've been told jokes here and there that this whole Lc is just a character and he's just playing a role and just a bit and it's a morning zoo stuff. And i can tell you people. I think that i am more real on this. Show with telling telling people things than the m a lot. In real life situations cool And and with that. Said i gotta tell you Limited to tell you a little bit hind the scenes and that is that this this expo more than other expos. Which which. Maybe i should have had a little bit more anxiety for i was just full of anxiety for whatever it was i had. I'm gonna call the Coming into this And especially for this interview and you and you'll hear it with them. When i make some key points here and that is you know seventeenth nineteen. We're asking ridiculous questions. We're asking people like you know offering jerk socks and taking silly to jerks just offer right in the beginning like offering amid the beginning of an interview where were an i had questions for all the different guests including ron keel than i had again. I'm just gonna call the podcast. Or roy had self-doubt all this stuff like that. And i said you know what i'm just going to go with. What's comfortable and ask them. Their the interviews are all fine and everything like that. And you'll hear me ask questions of bronchial. That are fine. But i had things that just lost all of a sudden about these. These questions suck. And i just took a backseat and was i not kind of fool. Anxiety leading to interview where you actually tipped remember. You told me that you were getting a little nervous about it. A couple hours ahead of time. And i my advice to you. Maybe you actually should have taken my horrible advice. Which was a couple of drinks. It wouldn't helped. Yeah we're all we all approach things differently but yeah no i of course but That probably helped planted a seed in the back of my mind. You know but i. I was like whatever we've got a time and i just don't worry about it. He's just be cool. But my whole thing about that is that Is two things. One is to say that that that i knew going to the wrong that even if i had this in the head my questions that you've built a great report with him over over the years and everything obviously with all your interviews and you had great game ready to go and everything half. The show is going to be the game. We figured right. The plan was to kind of let you take the lead on the first half. Yeah so i have all these right but that that did not happen in the first half is basically an intro that that i had basically a like a starter at olympic event i had like premature or false. Start evening. I just want to get this over with the entire time. You could tell from the tone of my voice or anything like that. I have a clicking. A countdown just like this to be over and everything like that. So the point being is is this. Is that I i'm grateful to have such a great co host that can take the reins in these situations had planning and things like that in the could have been a lot worse. If it wasn't ron keel. You know what. I mean Like if that would have been the she'd interview i would have. Maybe i would have thought about it ahead of time or when you talk to me but if i would had nothing prepared like.
What Is Relaxed Awareness and How Can It Help Us Connect to Each Other?
"Is your of relaxed awareness when you're listening to someone or and that's another part of it just listening right but what is that relaxed awareness. What do you mean by that. Yeah when we talk about relaxed awareness. We're talking about the ability to be aware of what's happening in yourself your own body your feelings and what's happening around you but to stay relatively common relaxed during that and it sounds simple but it can be really hard because sometimes we don't feel good and there's all kinds of things happening in the world that can stress us out in a huge way. So how do you stay on an even keel relaxed in the midst of all that in the book we point out some remarkable examples of laxed awareness to illustrate this light great athletes who in the midst of the commotion. And the pressure of maximal stress can stay relaxed aware and just flowing through what they need to do. These are kind of remarkable examples. But i think there's the capacity for relax awareness in each of us and one of the things we do in the book actually as we trace things back to infancy. We talked about how like when each of us were infants. We had a kind of a relaxed awareness state when our parents or caretakers fed us us. We'd had all of our basic needs met for sleep and feeding on babies. Get into this kind of light alert with what's called the quiet alert state where they're calm but really really alert and it's in that state. It's in that quiet alert state where babies can actually interact the most with their parents or with other people so we really think of relaxed awareness is a fundamental state that we can get into. But there's so many things in our world like you alluded you darren. That are just like pulling away from it. Distracting us stressing us making it so difficult to do.
How to Deal With a Sudden Loss of Revenue
"I wanna start. Today's lesson by just recognizing the fact that if all the sudden you have a loss of revenue for whatever reason in your business whatever the causes that situation absolutely stinks okay. It's going to her. It's going to really be a gut punch. These are going to be the toughest days of your life as an entrepreneur. I know for sure. I can look back in those days and cringe-worthy it's hard. It's hard to even think about it because you're stressed you're tired and you're in this kind of emergency fight or flight reflex mode where you just like. I got to solve this problem. Things are hyper tense and challenging. And i want to start with that because after guys as normal. This is not supposed to be fun. Okay this is tough having said that. It's actually good to actually imagine this happening to before the happens to actually go through the emotions sort of like a rehearsal. Why am i saying. Go through all this in. Go through the emotional anguish. Well what you wanna do. As much as possible in these situations is to be calm to have an even keel to be able to problem solve because the pressure is going to be immense. You're gonna feel the sense of like. I got to solve everything immediately. Will we really need to do is start solving it step by step one hour at a time one day at a time and being stressed being angry being frustrated is not gonna help the situation on top of that. If you have a team your team members are gonna look to you to leadership in. They see you in the state. It's not going to inspire them right. It's not going to make them feel like. Hey we can do this. You need to lead by example so just keep that in mind. Even if you're not in a situation right now rehearse it in your head because one day. We are all going to face some sore of bump in the road.

Yeah sure is well. Look the win. Ten k is influencing right now at the time recording i think made sixty or so players heading into day four amongst them arm raho rows perry. There's a blessing to pass this josephy. Alex fox and harrison kimball toby lewis. Tom marci on ari angle. The winner will walk away with two million. This event is very much the main event of the summer in vegas. That's obviously because it has been moved to the autumn with the main event in november. Darren you wrote a blog. This week giving some recipe recommendations. Can you give us. Maybe your top two or three tips. Yeah a lot of people being asked me recently. They're you know People who always had it on their bucket list to go to the city but never got around to it in the pandemic sort of concentrated minds and made people just take it for granted that will always be able to do. It's a lot of people are actually planning to go to the w. asap travel restrictions allowing for the first time this this Disodium from from his part towards people are asking for specific tips usually. They're they're focused on. You know how much it's gonna cost. And what's the best case to stay in and all that stuff for that stuff. I would say just going to blog. I talk about how. It's a very personal decision in. I've actually tried all of the alternatives. You know living near the Living near or even in the real living in a house on the outskirts living in a condo on the strip living in a better hotel all of those things. They all have pluses and minuses on. It's very much personal. What you want do one thing. I always tell people. There's two things i am. I guess i'll i'll focus on the first one is just. It's important to mentally prepare for the fact that it might not go exactly the way you imagined. And it's kinda like the live equivalent of sunday. You know every player knows we start. Every sunday feeding wonderfully chipper. This is going to be. We're gonna win. At least one major may be more than we end at four.

"I could see some potential in the idea. Maybe it was just executed poorly so no squash court actual prize money. There's that's the lesson we take your. It's a i mean. I know it sounds obvious but yes. Having having a big cash prize at stake is very important. People people would not watch this event if it was like a twenty five dollar by it no matter who's playing it so do remember wonderful. Poke the poking fun at the. Gpo where he he. It was done in the form of a breakdown but every best size zero dollars because it was nothing being played for all rounds zero. Say yes well. From one. Thomas keating reduction to another the ivy and doin interviews possibly going to be part of a series of even more interviews. I don't know this is being put on by poker. King at the moment of both of these guys are ambassadors for poker king. Both are obviously huge names. In the game who are actually fairly underexposed. The interview is out already. And the doin. I know will drop any day. May even drop before this stores. Firstly thomas you have pulled joey ingram back into the podcast. Content arena for these. Why was he the right man for the job in your opinion well. There's a few things about that we previously did. Do some interviews with ibm doin. The russell very successful on youtube One was a series of conversations between ibm barry greenstein. And then there was another kind of an ask me anything kind of session. We're fans many questions for tom. Doin- and then Knicks showman sat down and sort of fire. These questions out of any kind of explored branched into other conversational topics but thousand four matt that i found to be very successful and i knew that it probably would be better than just like firing questions from behind the camera. Or with like a buttoned up interviewer type of person. Because that's what i did for a couple of years. When i worked at bluff. I was the guy who i interviewed phil before. And i had like my list of questions and i just went one by one and it's not the most effective way to go about you guys. Don't feel comfortable like that. My no that more conversational aesthetics tend to just kind of come up more real. So it's the reason. The joey i guess i asked him to do. This kind of just happened on. Its own like. I'd already invited to come out to kabo. Do some content with us. Maybe do some commentary. I i knew he was going to be all over instagram's stories and stuff like that. Just you know showing off like you're i am. This is what a cool event. And so while i was already shooting some promotional stuff for like some ads for the upcoming event. I figured might as well bring joey. And they're into a bob so it just kind of happened serendipitous..

"The tournament was a sort of hybrid players playing on devices. But also for the most part live across the table from each other so the more satellite-aided in people talk about i these presents. His intimidating stare is ability to make salaries were there moments where you could see even though he was somewhat mediated him still able to do that arguably you know most of the players that phil had to play against that tournament. We're very tough players. There were softer sections of the bracket. There were tougher. Parts of the bracket phil didn't really have any easy matches. So i think most of his opponents probably like you know experienced players who played for high stakes and high pressure situations. I i would not imagine that. Somebody like manic. Loser felt intimidated by phil could feel his aura or anything like that. But speaking of wildcards Phil was definitely doing a lot of like out of the book things that seem to have thrown people off in a worked out for him. Yes it certainly did dr. We were talking about this. During the event itself obviously took place over several days but it really feels like poker king and do pt found something that really works here. I wrote a couple of articles about the event. And i pointed to the quality of the commentary you had. Jamie angeli ingram bringing color. But you also alleviate booths gay and look cheery and nick schulman to poke doing really good analysis. What's today for you there. I think the format was a winner. It was it was quick enough that That that it was engaging but it was not it wasn't just like one of the old fashioned token crop shoots. I also think they just general coverage was really good top commentators. You didn't manage to get into the box so that kind of illustrate stash only hire the best. And no need yeah. E even if the guy's olivia came straight from their matching and jumped into comedy. I thought that sorta added also good social media presence you had. You had a sense that they were all having good fun down there as well which is something that is it is important. I think to convey that to the outside world. Poker should look like fun and this look like a really fun event and yeah i think i think it was positive. I think it is a winning. Four-match wasn't his phone behind. The scenes look comes not for me as a lot of work. Thomas wait wait. Aren't you like some burnt tan. Exactly exactly yeah. A lot of people really got baked out there like joey and olivia but the feedback that i got from people that participated work the event played in it was it was overwhelmingly positive..
Fed Will Begin Reducing Bond Purchases Before Raising Interest Rates
"The chairman of the Federal Reserve Jerome Powell, today, suggesting that the Fed would follow the same playbook and develop back in 2013 and 2014 once it decides to reverse what it calls its asset purchase program, meaning tapering off those asset purchases would come quote well before any interest rate increase was part of a virtual conversation sponsored by the Economic Club of Washington. Here's some background since last summer, the Fed has been buying about $80 billion in Treasury bonds and about $40 billion In mortgage backed securities each month is a way to boost the economy and to keep the financial market conditions on an even keel. So for now, you can expect interest rates to remain low. He offered this assessment on the U. S. Economy post Cobain 19. E. I think the first thing to realize is that the structure of the economy is always changing. So the economy that we had back in college was one where low unemployment leads a high inflation and inflation state. Hi. It's very different now. And so we have to constantly update our thinking about the way the way the economy actually worked now bringing that to the present. We're coming back to a different economy. It's not going to be the same economy is the one we left and weigh. Don't know. Exact. What that will be, But we have some ideas and we're going to be finding out. I think you're beginning now. One of them is that they'll beam or, of course, they'll beam or remote working remotely. That's one thing another is we've talked to companies and been consulting firms who have pooped surveyed companies and many, many companies have spent the last year thinking about how they can use more effective technology, perhaps at the expense of of the number of people that need it. So do that. Do Their work with fewer people. And that's a lot of the service industry companies that have been traditionally big hirers of relatively low skilled low paid people. So that's a concern because we still have many millions of people from those jobs who were working in public facing service sector jobs. They don't have a lot of other skills or wealth. And so we need to be thinking about what they're going to do and how how they gonna find their way back to the lives and the working lives that they had, and it'll be different. Other ways as well way we'll be learning about that. And we always try to try not to settle on one model of the economy and think that we really understand this because it's ever

La being two quite different people. Would you agree with that. Well yeah you're going to say do whatever it takes to to On your tax form or your job application doesn't there so that was obviously a team player until he joined the team you know but looking back i could have probably motivated him a little better. And and may maybe a team player but the bottom line is ing. They was a huge ritchie blackmore. Fan and graham bonnet was one of his all time singer subbed. If if graham bonnet it wouldn't have mattered. If then our best friends and we were totally bonded and and writing great songs together and moving forward if graham bonnet called and said i want you in my band he would quit and i had that i did the same thing with black sabbath man i just put together a band call keel and i had my own say and i had my guys recruited as my team and it was Star the perfect situation but then black sabbath called and wanted me to sing with them and I had to tell my guys. Hey look and i'm i'm going to go joined black sabbath and they understood Just like i understood when ing they quit to join alcatraz with graham bonded it was. It was one of his favorite singers. Who had done Serious time with one of his favorite his favorite guitar player ritchie blackmore. And and the band already had a record deal. And and there's no way you could Begrudge anybody that opportunity if they get an the chance to to go play with their hero and signed act. That's not to say that anyway.

Musician i've got a demo to play for guide. Really like a record deal and the secretary says hold on and she put me in touch with a guy named brad hunt and i gave him the same pitch he said. Meet me in my office. Four o'clock on thursday and this was one hundred twenty miles away. I went to his office. Seventeen years old. I've got a business suit on a demo package with a four songs that i'd written and played all the instruments on drums bass guitar vocals. The whole thing was my package Eight by ten colour photos of myself playing live. And i put all the stuff on his desk and i said i wanna record deal. And he looked at the stuff and he listened to the demo and he said. I can't help you because this is just a distribution point. We just saw. But but i know somebody who can he on the phone right that very minute called leon to sylla's at mca records. A nationalists. is leon. I got this kid in my office right now. And he's gonna be a star someday. steams names ronchi. Oh can you help them out. And leon said yes. And they sent me to nashville. I did a demo. And they passed on me. Because my music was too heavy for nashville in the seventies the late seventies but i looked around and i saw that vibrant music city energy in every building rented a house on music row and i i saw this vibrant music scene which was totally devoid of rock started going to concerts and i saw roush saxon and van halen at the municipal auditorium there in nashville and and there were ten twelve. Fifteen thousand people in the arena. Just digging the rock but there was no local seen for that. And i thought there's a chance that if i could you must take my claim in rock and roll here in nashville that i might be able to to get noticed and i did with a band called lost which won the battle of the bands competition in nineteen eighty and released my first commercial recording with an album called the homegrown al mob sponsored by katie effort radio in nashville All of a sudden. I mean we. We were on the radio. We were playing for packed. Houses with fists in the air and that gave me the inertia to form and create a bank. Call steeler and the rest is history. Wow can you speak in a less like we..

But like you'd mentioned i'm coming home and some of the comments was like i didn't know you were from nashville. And i think you said you were from like ohio or indiana. Butcher wikipedia says you're from savannah georgia. So where are you from ron. Well we're we're You know. I'm from earth actually I moved to nashville in. Nineteen seventy nine when i was Just a teenager and it is certainly one of my a hometowns where i put down some serious routes and had some great experiences and memories. So it's great to come home to nashville. I do have some other hometowns. Says many people know hollywood. I spent ten years in hollywood in the decade of decadence in the eighties. Spent a lotta time in nashville tennessee. Ten years in vegas as well as but nashville is is and always will be one of my hometown's in one of those places.

Can you describe your experience of what. What what you thought of nashville. Back in those days. And because it's really like a rock and roll mecca now but back then it was definitely straight up country music and like a rock scene was although a rock scene did really developed. Thanks to steeler and several other bands in those days but national and seventy nine it was a it was a long way off from being really rock and roll town right a long way off by the way it was country music usa. At the time. I went there and the story about my move to nashville is probably well documented. But i'd love to reiterate that briefly. Could i was in texas in mount pleasant texas one hundred and eighteen miles east of dallas in the summer of winter. Winter of seventy nine doing a construction job and back. Then we didn't have the google. You had a phone book. And i'm looking through the phone book. And that was our source for whatever you businesses that you wanted to get in contact with that.

But he yeah he called the base and said hey these dudes were just here. What the fuck and the commander i mean. If i was a commander. I deny but the commander denied it denied saying new anybody about them. Nobody was supposed to go near. Nobody was ordered to go to his house and then he The base commander said report to the local police because their import impersonating air force officers. That's a big deal. And then he for a long time after that for years after that anytime it'd be on the phone there will be weird electrical interference shit. Yup bugged he got bugged. They knew him they knew in. I don't know why let's see. Oh i like this one. This was nineteen sixty seven in west virginia. Black limousines halted in front of hill homes and deeply tanned. Census takers inquired about the number of children. Living with families always the children in several instances the occupants of the big black cars merely asked for a glass of water a blonde woman in her thirties. Well-groomed with a soft southern accent visited people in ohio and west virginia whom john keel had already interviewed. She introduced herself as john keel secretary and basically getting in immediately getting into their good graces. John the clipboards. She carried held a complicated form filled with personal questions about the witnesses health income and type of cars. They owned their general family background and some fairly sophisticated questions about their ufo sightings keel never had a secretary. No no jesus christ as weird as fuck like who would even know who john keel had interviewed. It's not like he worked for an organization. Yeah and like. He was just interviewing people whose story was interesting. Yeah it was completely independently. Like his list of interviewees was held physicals taper list that he had in a binder like That's weird. There's there's weird shit. Let's see so contact. The woodrow darren burgers. So that was the con- he was a member of the contact phenomenon. Where basically back in the day the dudes the ut ufo and it would land and these tall blonde beautiful scandinavian Dudes and ladies would show up. Come out and say hey. We're for mars or venus and You guys really shouldn't have nukes like you should definitely not have nukes. And then they would always say a bunch of good stuff about communism Or with communist undertones and so that. That's what a contact is. Basically some alien showed up in front of him and said..

"Oh because of the movie and before the movie definitely but it it's shown time and time and time again that a lot of times they do claim. Hey i'm from the department of interior. I'm from the air force from the military and they will show a badge and the person will put down the badge number and the name and they don't exist or you know or the one of them. It was just the the entire department. Didn't exist in quotation marks. So you know. Yeah my my ideas on it. They're probably in when i talk about men in black. I'm not talking about the military going around and questioning people talking about something else. Helium phenomenon in men in black. I mean you can say alien. But i kind of agree with john keel in this case in Nineteen sixty seven. He completely rejected the extraterrestrial hypothesis. Really yeah after years of studying it. He's basically said fuck it. These aren't these are not aliens from another planet. There's no way because he was able to observe an overlap of psychic and yo- phenomenon and if they were aliens why would they after dog man citing or a bigfoot sighting or after somebody sees yeah i or A lizard man or something like that. I love scripted crooked reportings. They're so ridiculous and so many people report them with nothing to lose and nothing to gain everything to lose because you lose their jobs and shit like the. What was it the leprechaun in alabama. You remember that one. How am i got some old shit. Oh yeah okay. So so what does he believed that they are. He anomalous beings it kind of bring that anomaly to them relate third surround. It's it's weird. He called them. Ultra terrestrial 's okay. That's kind of where he went with it. He claimed that it's all one thing essentially like go scripted. Xenophobes demons fairies crypto vampire all all. This weird shit is the same thing pretending to be these different things for its own reasons whether it's trying to get something from us whether it's trying to create a fear in us whether it's trying to gather our water supplies because there's a ton of stories about ufo's just draining water tanks. Whatever they're doing it's he claims an and believe that it's all the same thing it's the phenomena in general is all related together and i i kind of see that with with how much look into this kind of stuff. Yeah so the link would be that. Bigfoot.

"Yeah that's cool. Yeah it's definitely mostly sleight of hand and shit. But his his entire thing was there. Were a lot of rumors going around kind of the west on these crazy trip. tricks so i'm gonna go to where they come from and see if there's any validity to it I'm going to go to you. Know to actually try to find some of these people so he You know he did that. It was pretty pretty. Dang successful book he'd contributed to the magazine flying saucer review and a lot of different similar publications flying saucer at flying saucer review. Still pretty dang good source for just reports of. Ufo's and shit like that. His first his first article in there was probably ride alongside eldorado birds on no That fucking astle under the fiction section. Well that's the thing with flying saucer review. They don't have a fiction section. It's just all fiction now. It's all truth it is. I mean you know. There's gotta be something to it. I mean something fucking terrifying to it. Why do you question. Why do you do this to yourself not on talk about. I'm curious now. I wanna talk about it. Okay no i'm just kidding so A part of the phenomena itself is a very often when you start to look at a certain aspect of this overarching phenomenon. Like if you start looking at bigfoot or you start looking at ufo's or you start looking at mole people or whatever. It is a lot of times the deeper you get into it the more it kind of looks back at you like a lot of authors. You know even active authors today report. I think nick redfern has one. He's basically the modern day version of john keel. He's got some good shit out there It's just usually more short and more dry like research style stuff which is cool. I like it but doesn't translate well to the show. But he when he was writing his book on women in black. It was the first book to to gather up a bunch of reports of people encountering men in black but they were women. He had a bunch of weird men in black style. Events like people calling his house and when he picks it's like a metallic voice on the other side speaking gibberish or saying something weird or random power outages that only affected his home but not that his neighbors houses or you know a lot of weird shit young people sitting outside of his house and a black car just watching him all day. You know just just like little things that on their own are like easy to explain away but when you have a lot of them all at once and like at what point is it more than a coincidence. Yeah it's like when you search on google how to storm a capital or what happens if you kill a congresswoman. Yes exactly normally. I start popping up and you'll start seeing more.

He had his first story published in a magician's magazine. Yeah you he was. Here's a writer but he likes sleight of hand. Tricks are backstory sucks compared to john man right. I mean animals are tricks. Never mind we. Aj's very first public stunts. Were making balloon animals for children that he later molested. So yes he is registered. Perfect state of utah. Now i'm not. No i mean yes i am because you live too close to a school. Yeah i would get kicked our actually. The the the name of the article is a repressed sex. Fiend beautiful. I love old pulp. Shit like oppressed sex fiend yet. Are you a repressed sex fiend. Oh god has probably sometime during the fifties if that i love it forties or fifties. So that's almost as good as the book thing. We saw earlier the book thing though he how to how to stuff your bikini or whatever the fuck that's let's move on from that not explain it at all so he joined the army during the korean war and he worked with the military as a propaganda writer which is pretty cool. It was fitting. I mean he's got it set with that fucking bull riding. He knows his shit led the military and worked as a radio correspondent in paris. Berlin rome egypt so spend a lot of time out of the states. He traveled a lot. Did a lot of research during this time as a working in the military and working as a correspondent he his side hobby was exploring some addition shit exploring some anonymous anomalous. Anonymous anomalous like Phenomenon okay. i can't say that fast together anomalous phenomenon. That wasn't a bad call me slim de shady. I will not my grandmother just texted me. I'm glad she doesn't listen. Grandma guy recording quiet on set all right. So he yeah. He technically j. during recording again. I'm gonna put you in a fucking home. he yeah. So he he had this interest in magician's tricks that kinda followed him throughout his life. Which is interesting. Because normally you drop that shit when you're fourteen and you'll learn what china is. This feels a little bit too familiar. Ray j what happened with your balloon ample. Let's just say that balloon popping fetish exists. We won't get into that..
Are Probiotics Ready for Practice?
"My first faculty position was a minority turkeys was introduced a college in dublin and was a gastroenterologist. They're not keeling was a very good friend of mine. He persuaded me that. The brain got access was relevant in relation to psychiatric illness at that time. Dopey really considered microbes within the got to be relevant in relation to the brain got access. And when i came back to cork seventeen or eighty years ago. A group of micro biologist and gastrologist decided that they're going to set up a new at brain got institute which we set up so i was involved in setting it up and at that stage. People thought michael might be important in relation to the brand. It wasn't at all clear so we begun researching the area. And i've been working in that area now for the past seventeen eighteen years. I'm a psychiatrist. And i decided at the very beginning that if we were going to engage in this research that we are going to publish the best journals out there because it's an emerging discipline. There's a certain degree of skepticism. About self our initial publications would have been been john peony s to the nineteen nineties. The general sense i got was that the brain is protected from the rest of the body by a tight web called the blood brain barrier other than stroke and a crane disorders and a few infections. There wasn't much that got in their back then. Psychopharmacology was all about synoptic festivals and neurotransmitters. But things have changed one landmark that stands out to me was two thousand thirteen. That was when dr trolls raisins group at emory published. The first randomized controlled trial of a medication that treats depression without even crossing the blood brain barrier. How did it work with saudi getting into the brain. The thought was that it treated depression. By reducing inflammation in the body. The medication was to the crisis factor antagonised inflexible and worked for treatment resistant depression but only in those who had elevated markers of inflammation like crp. You're probably not going to be using inflexible matt in everyday practice because it has to be given. Iv among other things but in this journal we featured a few articles lately on how to treat depression by reducing inflammation and dr dina's work on probiotics and the mind gut connection is one of them. But first let's hear from dr dean about what the gut microbiome is. The god microbiome is essentially the collection of micro organisms within the intestine. Now the majority of them are in the large in stein and the beat assed volume is carried bacteria. Now there are obviously viruses and fungi. There there are a variety of microbes. But we've largely focused on bacteria the golden microbial over navarine adult like you are. I is at least a kilo gram and weight. So it's it's quite a large wage. It's it's pretty much the same way. As the human brain really traditionally. We've always taken the view that their commencement. They don't do anything any harm there. There we feed them because we feed these bacteria as well but it really is only one in the last fifteen years that people have begun to realize that in fact there really is a synergistic relationship between these microbes and dos and was we might feed them that they in turn produce chemicals that our brain and other organs in our body absolutely choir how these gut bacteria influence the brain when i think they influence the brand in a variety of ways that be one of our database of boll is big areas of research over. The years is trying to anything. There are lots of unknown questions but the narva security very important majority. It's a long meandering nerve. It sends signals from brain. To got it sends signals from the brain we showed in taper in peony s their own twelve years ago. That sir microbes could only communicate with the brain. Is the vegas nerve was intact. So we did a gossipy in an animal. The microbe couldn't communicate with the brain. So the vegas nerve has very important author important.
Here we go again? More problems with hotel quarantine
"I'm health reported teigen. Tayla journalists dr norman swan. It's friday the fourth of december and norman. Just as we felt like we were getting on top of the south australian outbreak and everything was coming towards what felt like it could have been an even keel in australia. We've heard that there's been another case of hotel. Quarantine being transmitted to someone who isn't in hotel quarantine this time a domestic worker at a hotel in sydney. How do we deal with these scholley. That just an inevitable part of leaving during a pandemic so how do we deal with them when they happen. So far starts new the caveat that the time of recording this corona cast. We've only got partial information. More information will know marriage but this is going to happen from time to time. Not just in new south wales but elsewhere initially. It sounded disorders persons working across two facilities. It may just actually look located facility. You'll remember in victoria. People are strictly working in one. They are going to genomics just to work out. Where exactly this person got up from. Is it hotel quarantine order. They get it from the community again by the time you just as we the answer to that question nonetheless when you test workers in quota quarantine regularly you will pick up positive cases and you might pick up positive cases that are relatively mildly symptomatic or symtomatic. The otherwise card. So it's a good thing that we are detecting them and hopefully we're getting onto very quickly and they are testing the context of this person so we just need to see what happens here. But it's going to a car and we're bringing people overseas with coronavirus. This is gonna is gonna occur in all jurisdictions and nobody can look done new south wales or victoria or anywhere else. This is now going to be part of covid life moving forward and presumably as long as we are surveilling. That really closely. There's no need to go into full lockdown mired if you're picking up those cases very close to the source that's right and you wills has had outbreaks and quite significant outbreaks managed to bring them back down to zero. So this is going to be the same thing i can't. I can't imagine that this is going to be a problem of the dimensions. Of say. The purview cluster in south australia. But who knows. We'll see that. Knock allowing the premier. Wis necessarily did say that he wouldn't hesitate to close the borders again. Norman you give up on your dream of seeing caucus no. I'm still hoping that Run a me hotel. Quarantine new south wales or not. Well the other big coronavirus news. It's that in the last thirty six hours or so is that the uk is going to roll out the final vaccine really exciting to have real life people getting real vaccine at the end of this really really long pandemic approval so it's not a proper approval obviously just on a dive to make sure there's no major safety issues and the risk versus equation given how many cases get the uk favors just using this vaccine. They reckon the risk is low but they they will not have really looked at the data from the trials in any great detail. This point so it looks as if it's safe will it prevent infection. We don't know that yet it. May it certainly will prevent covid nineteen disease which is great given. You've had so many deaths in the uk and for us. It means that we shouldn't be rushing at all. We're not in an emergency situation. We'd almost no virus in australia apart from hotel quarantine and we can wait and we can let the british to be blunt. The british and the americans make mistakes learn how to distribute it double check that it's safe when they've given it to millions of people over the next few weeks and we will will put us much better shape from when we implement so the approval for the visor vaccine. Maybe some of the others will be over the next six weeks maybe longer. And then it's that we will do it properly. We actually talked about that in a bit more detail in yesterday's episode of corona cost. So if you're interested go back and check that one out. The other thing. Norman that i could say a very popular new story yesterday about someone who'd had sips associated with covid nineteen and he seemed to have a really dramatic recovery because of a massive dose vitamin say. What do we make of this not march. We'd be my first response was fantastic for the patient. It's a one off. There's no randomize ation here. People will argue that. You don't need a randomized trial with a parachute in other words. Prove parachute works. You wouldn't do a randomized trial parachute works. You try it out. So here's somebody that they thought was gonna die. Didn't die from mega doses of vitamin c. They'll think that they know what. The mechanism is presumably. They'll say that it's because it says potent antioxidant and it's doing something for the free radicals that may not be the case. Very high doses of vitamin c are actually pro. Oxidant and i suspect that if this works they haven't got a clue why but it might be a signal that you would actually test this out in people over on a larger scale to see what's going on so

"Young. Hey thanks for having me. I really like talking about. Star Wars. Yeah, and if you haven't seen Brian every week on the site has has like A. I WANNA call it a recap because I feel he gets much more than a recap. Would you call your your column about the mandatory in every Friday? You know I, kind of call it a review in that it does what I think or it it aims to do what I hope. Good criticism does is just shine lights on aspects of the. The show that people wouldn't have noticed whether that's in the filmmaking or the cinematic references or the mythological references and star wars. So I don't know, I, just call it a review but. Maybe. It's a little bit more depth than that to in this morning's one is like what two thousand words yeah just kept coming and I feel like I still in hit everything. And it's crazy to this year or at least for the first episode. Disney is not providing screeners for press. So you know all of us are actually did you stay up till midnight or did you watch it this morning? No I definitely watch this morning because it didn't come online until midnight Pacific Time which is two am my time and I'm getting too old to do that. I was up at midnight and I watched the thing and I was like I'll just go to bed after I couldn't sleep. I was up till three am just. Checking twitter reading up on things I. I was just like amped up. So bright you saw last right? No. I mean, in my time zone, it's one am in like Brad I'm getting too old for that sort of thing. So I got up at five actually to watch it and well, and I knew if I watched it last night, I was going to sit down in half to write my my review then. Go and I knew I wouldn't sleep. So I got up early in and got it done. Got It over to. To you all as fast as I possibly could. ANYWAYS, we're all on an even keel here. No one gets information ahead of time twenty twenty has sucked. But at least we have new season of the member Orien- right Maybe. It's over lining. I feel like it's the most excited I've been in a long time last night watching that episode Okay. Before you into the heavy spoilers I mean I wouldn't listen to this podcast if you haven't seen the episode so I'd go watch that on Disney right now but before we get to that, let's give our. Thoughts brief reactions and I'll start off by. Saying. This is how you do fan service. Right like Vincent gets bad rap I think that word is kind of used as a derogatory word in in certain ways but it was cool you know to. I feel like a lot of the stuff that was being done in this episode was not references for references sake it was the further story and then like when their work like interesting fan nods and reference it, you kind of have to connect the dots wasn't like. Oh look at that Blah Blah Blah. It wasn't like very obvious about it The production budget felt much bigger than season one for me. I I I. Love that. This was fifty four minutes where most of the season one episode where much shorter I think like most of them are closer to the thirty minutes. I. Guess. So. It was just it was so epic. So Good I. Guess My only negative that I want to say is I th I. Wish I had more of a role in this. Upset he was kind of like. The site I I mean I guess he's always sidekick, but he really didn't have much to do. So but I was really impressed with Jon favreau in what he was able to accomplish here. This is the first time you know he's obviously the creator of the show. He's a writer of the show, but this is the producer, but this is the first time he directed an episode. So Brian, what what are your brief thoughts? So I really loved the cinematic feel of it and it felt very George Lucas Very Spielberg and I'm sure we'll talk about that. Later. But I I'll be honest like I. Sort of as excited I was for what I saw at the ending I was also dismayed And it Kinda left me with like a bittersweet feeling because I've really enjoyed. BOBA FETT being dead. And getting. It's kind of like the feeling that a lot of people had with thinking ray was a nobody and then. J. j.j Abrams comes along. Well I don't I mean like I there was easier for me to swallow like I. Really. You only had years of that right? Like only two years of like thinking about that was the reality. Yeah, we've had a lot longer to to feel that Boba Fett was dead, but I really am appreciative of the fact that they worked in all of the stuff that Chuck Wendy get created around the armor and Cobb Vance to meet the elephants character that really. The that that has been the story for a long time and if they are incorporating that, I'm still not I. Don't know maybe maybe people know other things that I, don't but I'm still holding hope that it's not actually Boba Fett and it's some other random clone but I know that that's a long shot. Yeah. We'll get to that later. Do you have anything else to say in your brief thoughts? Just, it was fun. It was really fun and I haven't had that fun sitting. Had that much fun sitting down and watching something like this in a long time probably since last season well, Nelson's clone wars. Yeah Brad what are your thoughts on the by the way? Are we call this like to exit one or is this chapter nine like they're calling a chapter nine? I mean we'd be calling it both. Okay. Okay. What did you think of Chapter Nine? I realized I ought to fund with I'm I feel like I, wish that maybe it wasn't quite as long because even though it was a good episode I I felt a lot better when the episodes were between like thirty in forty minutes it just makes it feel a little bit breezy. especially since you know even though this season premiere did have some interesting new details to reveal. It felt more like an episode that was from like the middle of a season as opposed to season Premiere only because I didn't feel like that. There was much advancement as far as like the over. Arching plot you know it's like it's it's just a basic. It's like. Well, guess I'm taking this kid back to where you know to his people and you know, and here's another adventure of the week scenario and granted that's. The. Like I said there are big reveals I i. always like. I feel like season premieres should have you know something a little bit bigger and granted you know the whole idea of trying to take down a crate dragon is a big thing. I mean that's that's a big impressive effect that you're not likely to get in an average middle episode even a man to Laura and you know so that was a big deal but I don't know I don't want to say that disappointed because I never bored I still have a lot of fun with it but I guess I was just expecting a little bit more of an advancement with the the serial aspect of the story. That was my main complaint about season one was it was a lot of like. You know mission adventure of the week and it wasn't a lot of like there isn't really much of a overall like cereal plot of the show yet but I'm hoping that kicks into gear the season. What are you guys yet because I don't I don't mind the adventure of the week format necessarily but I just wish that the progress on the overarching stereo part of it was a little bit more media gas in each episode especially since these are very short seasons. You know it's interesting that it kind of depends on the scale you're looking at it from to right like in terms of the mandatory and in his story with seeking out man delorean's to return the asset to its people whether those are Djeddai or other creatures of its kind. It doesn't. It doesn't move the ball forward very much at all but when you pull back and look at the star. Wars universe. What it does with Craig Dragons in Tuscan raiders tattooing and Boba Fett absolutely does move that ball forward. So it's interesting to watch them balance between both those masters that they have to. Work for. I think that's fair. But I but I also think the progress of those balls in question is like I mean, how much? How much deeper are we into star wars lower by spending some extra time with Tuscan raiders in a crate dragon like it's not necessarily hugely revealing stuff that like provides a lot more depth into the Star Wars universe. It's more interesting details of stuff that we were already familiar with. Okay guys we we've got nine minutes which serve ref- reactions. Get into this.

"Jacob. degrom the mets we all know Jacob degrom, but he was crash from his start on Friday. With a against the phillies with some next stiffness, he'll start his planning on starting against the marlins Miami and you know. I'm surprised actually pitching to be completely honest because. The season is pretty much I. Mean I guess that he would be. He would basically just be doing it so he could get paid at this point, but I mean he would get his prorated salary regardless if he was playing or not at the mets are nine and fourteen therefore games out of the. Four Games out of the East lead they've already lost one two of their best players with marcus, stroman and Noah syndergaard. Know. Why he would even play. It doesn't look like the mets are really going to be doing anything in the division. So. I mean. A. Whole I'll just come back through another game and then and then pretty much just opt out of the season if I were him but. You know he's he's out there playing and he's doing a great job this season and you know you gotta come you got you give him his props for endlessly fighting for the New York mets even then they haven't. You know they've been trying to hold onto whatever relevancy they've had since the I think it was Twenty Sixteen World Series, Twenty Fifteen, twenty, six world series when they lost to the Kansas city royals but alongside him another one in another player from the Bronx went down this weekend. Dj Lemay Hugh. Aaron Boone said the digital mayhew is going to be out for about two to three weeks. He was placed on the ten day de L. With thumbs strain. Suffered it just on a swing in the fourth innings. Nathan you've all the which is not. Not a good sign for the New York Yankees but I mean they're they brought up Miguel and do hard their defense is going to go down but their offense will stay. Will stay you know. Fairly even Keel for the most part I would say they would go down a little bit because Dj here's a four hundred hater and Miguel Angel Harz in anything like that. But I think M Miguel and do Haro. You'll love the at a little bit more power to the lineup. And? They'll lose a little bit of the base but I mean they're they're crews in right now. So I mean it's not going to hurt the Yankees a little too much.

Tesla picks Austin, Texas for $1 billion 'gigafactory'
"Get back to Tesla, the company, just announcing Austin as the location of its new gigafactory gene monsters been listening in on the earnings. Call Jane. What's new? Austin's new Melissa I mean this was largely expected, but really lays the groundwork for the company to ramp production recall that they reiterated that five hundred thousand vehicle target for twenty twenty in need to grow to fifteen million vehicles of the next ten years least on Musk, a target, so Austin is new, and they also expect to have three more factories in the next five years, which big name to six total factory, so when I think about this. Three hundred billion dollar market cap and think. How can this be a much bigger company? One is for them to scale into that news round at in Austin. The second I think really critical piece here. It's going to be largely ignored. Here is Elon. Musk's first comment was about Austin. His second was about their solar business. This nascent called five percent of their overall revenue, but the fact that he is mentioning that I believe he's starting to educate the market about Tesla being much. Much more than a car company, a pride myself on being levelheaded in even keeled adult. Want you to think that I've totally drank. The KOOLADE here but I think that this company can take its existing technology around batteries, motors, and what they're doing in full self-driving apply more to the energy market in create much more than three hundred billion dollar market cap. Undoubtedly, it will be a wild ride with the stock, but this is I. Think the start of what will be a multi year. were. Tesla educates the market above being more than a car company.
Here Are Details Of MLB's Reported Plan To Begin 2020 Season
"Start it with major league baseball. Because yesterday now we'll see it's interesting. They seem to be a little far apart on the number of games that they would like to play. We mentioned the. Game they want more. They want to say we want more money, but we're willing to play more games to go along. With hundred fourteen games be precise data gain from yesterday, hundred fourteen games deferred salaries in the event of a canceled postseason because of the weather. And the option for all players to opt out of a potential twenty twenty season, due to corona virus concerns that according to Jack Passing and others proposal I from the Union. It was the first from the Union I should say and is expected to be pretty much dismissed immediately, but they would run June thirtieth to October thirty first which I think. The owners! Want a hard stop on October first, so they threw out yesterday are. Hundred and fourteen games. Season today. There's rumors. That Major League baseball might try to play. Fifty Games Dan. Fifty that's that's my kind of baseball season. Sprint that's plan. That's where you can't say. It's a marathon, not a sprint and you just say it's a sprint can't say even Keel, either you lose three in a row your dodds over. Your out of your your mathematically eliminated, you'd better have a stopper in your rotation. That's what you're saying correct. You can't lose three in a row, so the exact number is still being considered, but the aim would be to return in July and get going so hundred and fourteen from yesterday off the original eighty, two from the owners, a long way from one hundred and fourteen to fifty bite, but a we but about the terms. The money we are we getting closer. This would be the one. The fifty gamer would fulfil the players pro rata desire the program. Martin okay. That's why it's being offered up now. Okay is that we feel like if I we could do the pro rated thing, we won't lose as much money. We could actually just prorate you and go fifty. We could pro rate you up to fifty, but we can't. It anymore expanded postseason. It's already been expanded I. Think they would still do the seven teams in easily. I've I thought they. Maybe it expanded even more for this year. If it's only a fifty game regular season, apparently, the small market teams in the NBA do want the NBA to include everybody because they want to as Mark Cuban said last week I think. Get the local TV dollars the revenue that they need from their TV deals to keep them afloat, so the NBA there people are trying to include everybody it sounds like. So who knows? What's the deadline I mean? We gotta get something by the end of this week we got two more weeks or what or in June I mean Laval told us last week. Was it last week the week before? that. It's GonNa have to be the first couple of weeks. June because if you want to start at the end of June. Or even ended July. You need to do your whatever spring training two point Oh that you're going to do right right, so I'm not sure I'm trying to queue up. A sound bite here Gimme a second.

Now here's one about Friday. Friday was the unlucky. Stay to set sail as it was the day Christ was crucified. In the day Eve tempted Adam. Grand a garden of Eden.

How do pirates retire?
"And all next week. I'm investigating the myths and mysteries of the pirates that sailed the seven seas during the golden age of piracy. Yesterday I debunked the idea that pirates never had treasure chests full of gold blooms and pieces of eight and cited the discovery of the pirate ship wide up by BERRY CLIFFORD CHESTER TREASURE. That he hold from the remains of that ship and yeah it was a treasure map that led into that site today. I'll detail how pirates were able to repair their ships despite being unable to pull in any protocol and where they ended up when they go to old from the coast of wealth leak Massachusetts where Clifford found that pirate ship. Wider will travel eight thousand miles across the Atlantic cross the continent of Africa to an island in the Indian Ocean in the seventeenth century. A thirty one mile stretch of land was called Ile Sainte Marie. Just a short sale as the seagull flies. For in the seventeen and eighteenth century was home to more than a thousand pirates but it was no mere coincidence that the colony was set up on seemingly remote island this particular stretch of land in the Indian Ocean was chosen specifically for location from here. The pirates could easily intercept and plunders ships. Traveling from the East indies laden with valuable cargo. So associated was island with piracy that gone to Madagascar for Limes. Was a message often left at pirate meeting places. It is believed that feared Brin Adam Baldrige realized that the bays and inlets of the island would provide safety for ships as well as affording about a full supply of fresh food water and women. It is also thought that the ample supplies of fruit were used for making that infamously favorite drink of these. See Ferry Marauders. Rum was the many inlets. The provided a defensible harbor for careening. This ship was pulled ashore and much of its whole. Planking was either scraped clean or replaced because this process placed ships and their crew in a vulnerable situation change were pulled across the entrance to the inland just below the surface. In the event of the pirate harbour was discovered in an English or Spanish ship attempted to enter the chain would rip out there Keel but more than a pirate harbour. I all Sainte. Marie became last stop for aging pirates. To this day you can go. To The island of find hundreds of stone markers at with names dates and the skull and crossbones on some many times entire crew would end up on the island and bury their treasure often in fear of having it taken by another pirate truth. Tunnels were dug containing all kinds of traps. Should an attempt be made to steal their booty? One of the most notorious Captain Kidd suffered at the hands of his crew burned his ship to the water that was the adventure galley and then sank after the remains of the ship were discovered so many tourists came to what was commonly called. Pirates island. This would be about nineteen eighties. They were injured when they descended into those ancient pirate tunnels so many were injured that the local government had the entrances cemented over. Well Monday.

Coronavirus conspiracy theories don't go viral by accident
"If you've gone on the Internet in the past week you've probably heard about plan DEMOC. It's viral video full of misinformation about the corona virus it features a discredited scientist who accuses people like Dr Anthony Pao Chief of the NIH and Bill Gates of using the kkob in nineteen outbreak to seize political power youtube. Facebook and twitter have been trying to chase the video off the Internet but experts. Who FOLLOW DISINFORMATION? Say It's not an accident that it got so big in the first place. It's an old playbook that's even more effective in a time of fear and uncertainty Rene dressed as the technical research manager at the Stanford Internet Observatory she studies Discourse Online in the most recent viral misleading video. That went up on facebook. You know there was a strong marketing component to it because one of the people involved had a book to sell. What you see is the same text will be used. It'll be kind of a particular core message produced almost the way that you would see from a team where the message goes out alongside the link and there's a real attempt to get it all out of right around the same time in hopes that you can kind of trick one of the algorithms that amplifies popular content on platforms into thinking that it seeing something. That's organic and I just you know. simultaneous outpouring organic interest. In person or topic. What role do other influencers play in? Getting this into the mainstream like is part of the campaign to have a list of sort of ideal. Influencers that you would love to get to re tweet your content. Yes absolutely I if you get it to. A sufficient number of blue check accounts have a million two million followers audience members. You've really ensured that you're reaching an existing mass audience. People think that those accounts are more authoritative. A trusted influence with a large audience. Really does a lot to both reach. People also create an environment in which the information is coming from. Someone that you trust. How can journalists avoid amplifying these claims like what is the right response to a coordinated misinformation strategy? And how do you even identify quickly enough? With regard to this particular video that went viral with the discredited scientists That was actually the third or fourth video that had been posted to youtube that did get significant traction and so those of us who watch be anti vaccine in health misinformation communities really this was like a train wreck and very very very slow motion. You know people had seen indications that this marketing effort was really trying to turn her into an influence or the problem was nobody wanted to write the story including including researchers. Because you don't WanNa give it oxygen if it's just gonNA stay confined to the communities. That are the natural sort of affinity places for it and then you see the debunking pieces begin to go up because it takes time for journalists to write those articles. They usually don't go up for six hours. Maybe and the challenges at that point the viral information has had a chance to release with people for a couple of days and the correction is not going to go as far as did. This is where I do think that platforms bear a little bit more responsibility in terms of when you begin to see a video or post or a repetitive content about a person began to gain traction in what looks like an authentic or coordinated way. That's where there's an opportunity to kind of temporarily throttle while you have the fact checker. Go look and see what kind of information this is and how it should be dealt with got it. Are you saying that that platforms may have the technology or just is on to be able to get to it more quickly you can begin to see when velocity of mentions is what it's called sometimes beginning to do well of Coca Cola is all of a sudden mentioned five hundred times in a minute? It'll flag for their brand monitoring people who will go and look and see what's going on so these tools for social listening and understanding that dynamic they do exist got it. Let's say the content gets taken down? In which case the conspiracy theorist becomes digital martyr like is one of the goals actually to be taken down so the then you can claim that you were censored. Well what we saw in the prior take downs this video that achieved Mass Keel was actually the third video in which they declare exactly what you've said that someone somewhere is trying to keep people from knowing the truth that's in some cases the better response rather than doing the takedown just ensuring that the accurate information is attached as quickly as possible. What are the opportunities in this time? Exactly because you know obviously there have been a lot of conversations about misinformation about manipulating platforms platforms have tried to take a handoff hands off approach. And they're now essentially saying you know. The virus is a clear and present public health danger. We can act more aggressively because the benefits are indisputable from a health perspective. Does that give us a an opportunity for research or lasting change or data or really understanding misinformation better? While some of the work that we're doing at Stanford actually looks at The initial application of those policies so the current a virus misinformation policy in extension of policies. That were put in place in two thousand nineteen related to the measles outbreaks. That were repeatedly happening When the Brooklyn Measles outbreak struck the platforms did begin to take steps to reduce the amount of reach that anti vaccine groups were getting and they did that. Some very basic ways. They stopped promoting them in the recommendation. Engine they stop accepting money to run. Ads on their behalf. The challenge the interesting thing that we've seen come out of this is that the policies were designed to amplify the CDC in the World Health Organization and their information but during the current a virus. There was the additional challenge of institutions. Trying to figure out what was going on at the same time as everybody else and so there wasn't always great information to be amplifying because with something like hydroxy floor Clinton whether it works. A scientific authority isn't gonNA come out with a strong firm judgment all Matt Prior to the research being done and so. There's this gap where people really want information but the science isn't there yet and so what fills the void is? Whatever any random person you know with a sufficiently large audience produces about hydroxy chloroquine. And so there's there's just not a whole lot of authoritative information for the platforms to be amplifying. Says it's been an interesting time with just understanding. How how you get information to the public. When there's no information Rene Studies online discourse at the Stanford Internet Observatory and now for some related links in news. You can hopefully use if you don't find yourself to enraged by the level of willful conspiracy believing from your friends and family on facebook. The Atlantic has a piece from last week on what to say to people who shared links to things like the plan. Democ video or other debunked. Disinformation it does say that. You will have the most luck with people who are curious or uncertain wondering if thing could possibly be true and it says you should try to empathize with the fear and uncertainty and quote. Don't lecture someone. Don't get exasperated. Don't insult them and don't try to refute specific falsehoods.
