So definitely connect on LinkedIn, Kenya, odor, PhD, last name is ODU OR, it is the most I would have kept my maiden name if I knew my blast name was gonna be so hard. Check out the web company website lean geeks dot net. Dot net and I think LinkedIn is the best place to start because from there, you can get to YouTube, videos, and you can get my contact information and I just like to connect with people and like I said, I'm trying to build up my network of folks, especially like us, designers and creators and researchers that look like us are important for me to connect with at this point in my career, especially those that I don't know now or yet.

I mean, my mom used to tell me when I was younger, especially early on in my career before I started becoming a designer like sometimes you have to do the things that you don't want to do so you can do the things that you want to do or something like that. I might be screwing up that whole thing, but I get it. But it's true. Sometimes you have to kind of put the time in, you have to see what you can gain from those experiences and then use those to become a better person.

So thank you so much for coming on the show. I appreciate it. Thank you so much for having me, Maurice and continued success to you as well..
Iranian Plot to Assassinate US General Foiled by Mossad
"From the post millennial side a great site Iranian plot to assassinate U.S. general in Berlin foiled by Israel's Mossad The Mossad had been operating in Iran at the time when they captured an interrogated mansoor rasuli Who admitting during an interrogation that he had been ordered to assassinate a U.S. general in Berlin A journalist in France and a worker at the Israeli consulate in Istanbul Israeli officials pointed out that the threat posed by the Islamic revolutionary guard corps applies not only to Israel but to other nations around the globe The officials also noted that this plot is part of a larger target list which includes recently foiled plots in both Kenya and Columbia Rosalie who admitted that he was ordered to establish a terror cell during drug cartels to assassinate his targets According to the Israeli defense forces the plot was organized by a member of unit 8 40 A secret operations unit that organizes infrastructure for terror groups within Western countries The Iranian government was reportedly willing to pay over $1 million for the assassination of these targets The operative who was part of Iran's quds force was reportedly paid a 150,000 to quote prepare for the assassinations According to reports from the U.S. UK and turkey Iran has been using international crime groups to carry out its agenda in countries around the world These plots include the hiring of zen dashi cartel to abduct or assassinate Iranian defectors in turkey Which has been ongoing since 2015 I wonder who the general is But it's my understanding that they had a price on Pompeo's head
How Did Dinesh Conceive the Idea for '2016: Obama's America'?
"I did mention Debbie. My name is Austin and I'm an aspiring filmmaker from Georgia. My writing partner and I bring some projects, but we're most excited about a conservative show concept. We'll finalizing this word. From a story standpoint, it compares the analogies of the famous books warnings to the current reality of the United States. Anyway, we would love to know how did you conceive the idea to make 2016 Obama's America with no filmmaking experience and how did you get those who are willing to help you make it such as funding, filmmaking, et cetera, because we're looking for that up to. Well, in my case, the idea of making the film arose out of a book that I had already published called the roots of Obama's rage. So I felt that I had a powerful new insight into Obama. And that would be intriguing as a film. Now, the conventional view of Obama was he was kind of a civil rights guy. He came out of the kind of tradition of Selma and Montgomery, the Martin Luther King tradition. And my point was no. Obama, it's not that he was born abroad, but he comes from a foreign perspective. He is absorbed, if you will, the dreams of his father. So I thought this was an interesting topic to be able to convert into a movie, although I didn't quite know how that would be done. As it turns out, a movie is a journey, and I would have to go to Hawaii and Indonesia, Kenya, and kind of track down almost physically the Obama story. But once I got the idea, I realized that, you know, I'm not on the left. I'm not like Michael Moore. I can't go marching into a studio and collect $10 million and say, okay, I'm going to make a movie now. So on our side, you've got to sort of build it out from the ground
Dinesh D'Souza Joins Charlie to Discuss His New Film '2000 Mules'
"With us right now is a great American patriot who has done so much in just the last decade for the cause for liberty, dinesh d'souza, dinesh great to see you. Charlie, it's a real pleasure. Thanks for having me. Of course, we're here at a turning point action dinner about to talk about your upcoming movie. We also both have podcasts with Salem first yours is the dinesh d'souza podcast, right? Comes out every day, is that right? Exactly. I do it, I do it audio and video, and I've been doing it now a little over a year, and so I'm relatively new podcaster, but really enjoying it. Awesome. Tell us about the movie. We've talked about it. A fair amount on this program, but no better person to talk about it than you? Well, I think it's my most important project of all the movies I've done. So this is number 6 of the documentaries. And I'm sensing around at the same kind of electricity I felt around the first movie, which was my Obama film called. Really broke the zeitgeist. Yes, the second most successful political documentary of all time after behind Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9 11. But I think this movie like that film pulls the curtain back. And the first film that was a puzzlement around Obama, Obama was doing all this stuff that seemed to undermine America and it just seemed, is this man so clueless that he keeps giving away American interests. And so there wasn't a good framework to understand Obama. So I got on the plane, I went to Hawaii, I went to Indonesia, I went to Kenya, sort of discovered the real Obama. And here, this is a movie that's not called 2000 meals. It's not about a person, but it's about a burning issue that is surrounded with a veil of censorship. It's about an issue that's on. It's almost like it's haunting the American mind. And I don't think we can really go forward as a country without learning, perhaps not all the truth, but at least some of the truth. And by truth here I mean, documentable, provable facts about the 2020

David Friedman's New Book 'Sledgehammer' Might Surprise You
"Willing. The book is sledgehammer. How breaking with the past brought peace to the Middle East? I want everybody to buy the book. It's been out now for two days. It is number one in its category on Amazon. Congratulations, mister ambassador. I want everybody to order it, but give us a little tease. Tell us about some of the things in the book that perhaps will surprise people or surprised you as you were the point person for the president in the Middle East. Well, what I tried to do consistent with the name of the book is to show some of the challenges that I faced. And I think the most important one was the challenges I had with the U.S. State Department. And I make a couple of points. There, for example, at one point, as I was helping to orchestrate president Trump's first visit to Israel and he was the first sitting president ever to visit the Western Wall, the only to this day, the only sitting president to visit the western world. And I was pushing hard on it, and I got a call from a senior member of the State Department who called me up out of the blue and said, you know what, mister ambassador, I have a word of advice for you. Don't be so Jewish. You know, what? And I said, you know what? I'm a big boy. I've been around all kinds of ethnic epithets in my life. And you're not offending me by what you're saying, but let me ask you a question. Why do the laws of political correctness apply to everyone other than Jews? I mean, why do you feel comfortable telling me that? You wouldn't go to any other ethnic group and tell them. I'm trying to imagine an African American ambassador who's been sent to South Africa or to Kenya as the American ambassador. I'm trying to imagine a State Department official getting away not being escorted out of the building, nanoseconds after saying to the president's envoy. Can you be a little less African, please?
U.S. Has World’s Highest Rate of Children Living in Single-Parent Households
"United States has world's highest rate of children living in single parent households. And there's no way it's gotten better by the way, since the virus. Almost a quarter of U.S. children live in single parent homes more than any other country on the planet. Let me say that again. More than any other country on the planet, and so the obvious explanation as to why this is, is wealth. Is in poor countries you just don't have the money or the luxury or the ability to break up a family you need a nuclear family to stay alive in Zambia. Even if you don't like your husband or don't like your wife, what keeps you together is survival. When America because of our abundance of garbage we've imported from China, and our instantaneous science scientific and technological economy that's rigged towards instant gratification, like I don't like my spouse, I'm just gonna leave. And in a perverse way, wealth has made our moral fabric weaker. When you think about that now, a libertarian one agree with that a staunch libertarian person who just defends, abstractions all day long. They say, no, no, no. It's what you do with it. That's the silliest argument I've ever heard, okay? There are externalities to conditions. Economics teaches you that. So 23% of U.S. children live in single parent homes. The next highest on the planet is the United Kingdom, 21%. That's a wealthy country. Russia, 18%, not as wealthy, but definitely previously war torn. We have a we have more children living without parents than countries that are known for orphans without two parents. Kenya, 16%. Japan only 7% India, which is one of the poorest countries on the planet 5%.
Yes, We're Calling It Hispanic Heritage Month
"So it is it's hispanic heritage month. I do have questions because and as we were going to define some of these terms in this corner. I want to talk about because words are important and it's interesting i don't know like is so let starting there. It's hispanic heritage month instead of latin x heritage month. Should it be being rebranded because look. Let's look at the term hispanic latin next like hispanic has it's been defying is pretty much folks from countries that speak spanish. This glued brazilians would and it was kind of a term that was really just designed during the census and spanish lakes being spaniards are actually not hispanic islamic actually so fun fact in the nineteen sixties mexicans and battery kenya's got together and advocated to be on the census imagine not even being on the census so the advocated and they came up with the term hispanic. Oh spongebob lantis. Yes but then. In the nineties being latino became thing and so now the us senate and this is fact. I listened to the director from the pew research center phone. Don't love looking at you know. These are all off the side. I love that were in person right now. Recognize lipstick and put on makeup for head. Because she look you get to be handed me in the night in the nineties. Let the nose became a term and so now the census just use it. Interchangeably So and then there's also this one spot on there and it's like but there's also like those like non white hispanic sucks at really sucks. I know that that's making the research all kinds of ways because it means that. Oh yeah i think. Essentially that article that means. Most latinos are now marking that. They're white and all of a sudden like ten years ago. There were latinos who identified as people of color. And now there's this gigantic drop and we see latinos identifying as white

Fighting for Food Sovereignty in Kenya and Uganda.
"Thank you susan. Leonida for being on the breaking green ceilings podcast. Today we want to talk about the implications of free trade agreements. On african women specially from food sovereignty perspective. But i will start with our standard introductory question here on the podcast. Which is what role has nature played in your life and i can start with the anita or interest wondering for that first. The iba the videos descends to nature because he document shower penalties or by the social food at of a economic committee's report i'm raised from finding community and finding for so we actually directed me when we're producing Another thing i'd like to talk for example when you're relaxing use nature of that alexa eastern To league or whatever he thought we offer meaningless. Nfl but so you're connecting with a natural acid and of course that aspects appreciation mitch Your ruin susan lesser very interesting question but just to say that we alive because later is alive and if we look after it looks to us just the same and i think in the last two years we have seen exactly what nature can do when they tell you that you need one hundred million to get about for sitting as a boxy jam when mitch as playing to you realize the narrative changes as what we are we are leaving it and it's accommodating us. I don't know if we're being kind too for that's another story but

Welcome give us a brief introduction to your background and your academic interests of originally from nairobi kenya and now bit state joins us bikes african. So i'm trained as a town planner from the university of nairobi in kenya. And then i came here to join his bug so up in here for a few years on through expanding my knowledge and research on cities. That's my background. In academic interests really have been on not just town planning this of projects of city building and especially how public sector planning and policymaking trying to achieve beto aben species for for all who live in it. So it's it's a research policy. Research on urban growth in the different dynamics that shape to development especially in africa in my focused in has been the two cities are of lived. In which is narrow be enjoyment on the topic of preparing for future cities. What is getting growth. This proactive town planning in city management. In which countries have you seen success in africa internationally from the data on african abundance which is sort of projected to drive most of the evidence in the next few decades it it. It looks like we are going to have a lot of cities and mega-cities in africa. Presently we have maybe. Three mega-cities bug is projected to grow in the next few decades but they abandoned in africa is also being driven from the smaller towns in secondary cities that have a population of say quarter million and most of ny liberal most of the discussions are about how this growth to be managed and traditionally. We have this sort of formal proactive systems. Town planning that attempt to prepare setup the rules of about how it is to grow before the city's urbanites but what you've been observing boy especially in african towns and cities more organic formal growth and development that is known necessarily planned which then creates this economy. Were to sit out for more planned a good city or ideal city and informal and planned by the to need to correct and i think what we can begin to look at his
US Special Operations Vets Carry out Daring Mission to Save Afghan Allies
"Your government has abandoned american citizens in kabul and something. I've been watching happen in real time. And i've been getting phone. Calls and emails and texts nonstop are american citizens that of stepped up and have actually started to dead. Americans freed because our own government refuses to do so. This is called pineapple express not that pineapple express. Okay a different. I don't know how did they come up with the same pineapple. Express i okay. Which is a rogue team of retired s. vets who have been rescuing people during secret missions conducted behind biden's back. This has been executed by private equity investors by veterans that are just flying across the world because our own government refuses to do this work. They're flying into turkmenistan. Tajikistan they're flying into kirghistan and just literally dead in cars from people that they know and driving into afghanistan arming themselves. They're trying to do it through force and they are successfully extracting americans and interpreters that they knew that. Help them in fact. There are stories right here that this private american citizens zack van meter to good dutch name. Private equity investor from naples florida. He phoned the government somaliland asking if it would host thousands of afghan refugees. See this guy's smart. He doesn't wanna bring the refugees to america so we just calls somaliland whereas somaliland is that near somalia. Never heard of it before somaliland. Why doesn't he llano. is that where she's from. She's from refugee camp in kenya to tell us terrible we are. The group is talking with officials from albania. Ukraine and other countries hoping to find places for them to settle the us government by the way the biden regime. The state department is trying to stop this from happening. You see the thing. That joe biden doesn't want to see happen is successful extractions of people because his government is too incompetent. Biden is too busy sending hellfire missiles at random civilians and killing children
Biden Responds to Kabul Airport Attack
"Short time ago. The president of the united states came out and spoke about the horrific bombing which happened today in kabul. We don't know of course the exact death toll at the moment. But it seems like they're already thirteen American servicemen killed and the president's speech. I thought was one of the more bizarre speeches. I've ever seen by a president and i'm saying this in the year. Twenty twenty one so i want to get quick reaction. I'm assuming everyone had the opportunity to review the president's ben. he's not since he is not capable. He is not competent. He came out. He looked like a mental patient. I mean he really did he he. He looked like he was barely awake. He stumbled his way through a bizarre seven or eight minutes speech. That contract itself about seven different times. He tried to rely very heavily on the. I'm empathetic joe. Routine the but the minute. That questions began all that went out the window. And he became combative joe He had nothing of merit to say. Yes no defense for his policies because this policy garbage and most of all if you're an american enemy watching the president of the united states on the same day that thirteen american soldiers are killed twelve marines. And you're watching. As the united states turns tail and runs leaving a thousand plus american citizens behind in kabul plus an unspecified number of thousands of american green card holders plus hundreds of thousands of people who will immediately be slaughtered by the taliban and as it turns out the united states government handed a list to the taliban of all the people we wanted to evacuate in the know precisely who to kill five just in kabul. They're americans all throughout the country. Weren't even talking. Yeah that's right if you're watching this as an enemy of the united states and then you watch this adult old feeble minded man walk out and barely make it through sentence. You're thinking you're like homer simpson with a hamburger right now. I'm bin laden said in ninety eight ninety nine after bombing kenya and tanzania the embassies there and after the mild response from a clinton administration said america's paper tiger. I don't know how if you're an enemy of the united states watching what has happened over the course of the last month. You can't look at the united states and say that is a nation. That can do anything i want to. This is a nation that is ripe for fall and this president is ready to let it
Athletic Performance Coach Erik Huddleston On Managing Squatting and Squat Training
"We could start there so someone who can't get down. Get low on the court. They have a problem with that. I know titles but on the show talking about squatting in an elevator. I think to me. That's the easiest way i just see. That is the ability to manage the pelvic floor. But i'd like to get it from the feet up to and and like the early stance amid stance. So could you maybe kick it off by sharing a little bit about just getting into low position. Level changes what that means from. I mean yes squatting but also like the the stance the phases a stance and the feet. Right yeah so from from squatting standpoint start there is like i sure that everybody almost everybody is listening to. This has has recognized or current before with the people that they work with that. You know there is this kind of forward orientation that a lot of people have so. We're being driven forward from behind Kind of like which look at when you look at gate with that is like a constant falling catching yourself as you go forward. That's necessary for certain things will get later but I think the most important thing to recognize. I is that you know if you exaggerate this. If anybody listening stands up and just like leans forward like for your tibia ghettos and so as you get handed this this more anterior translation of your tibia. Those are movements that are going to be as long as the heels on the ground. those are movements towards middle potion. so i'm as soon as the cal- kenya's breaks your into later phase of propulsion But if tibia isn't isn't vertical on starts to break forward you're moving towards the middle worship propulsion and. That's more of an ira bias general. So let's say like someone comes and they're squatting in noticing a ton of like horizontal pelvic displacement so their hips are going back there chested dumping ford. It looks very much like what she would want. If you're going to have them do a trap or dead lift if they're already biased towards that middle point ocean they're going to continue to follow this to be forward and so they're going to be unable to to have any type of vertical displacement of their elvis down in a squat That's there already in heaven i. Ira bias there. So they're going to follow that forward. Because i are doesn't allow for a lot of what we consider like. General movement qualities suid variation in movement. irs compression i are. Is you know force production. It's not necessarily not necessarily like fluidity of movement or you know. Look people would consider mobility
We Don’t Need To Resettle Refugees in Our Country
"I came out strongly against the refugees. Because i don't know who these people are second. You don't have to take them into your country. You can accommodate them in other parts of the world you can bring the german airbases for all. I can't decide they have to arizona in iowa in swing states across the country is insane and a lot of the guys. I talk to that. Need to leave for safety. Said look i don't want to stay on. I want to go back to my car. That's the whole point. Was that all of a sudden. Now we have. Mrs where i you know. The media lost her mind. And what i said which is we do not have obligation to resettle them in america navigation to help them you can bring them to any of multitude airbases. We have across the planet which is plenty in. You know the great american empire from germany to japan to south korea. But this idea we now have to give citizenship to someone who might not really share our values. They might have helped us but they might not share american values a lot of them though. Believe it or not afghan. Stir a lot of really good folks. We got our interpreter. Here on the right somalians o tuckey. All right yeah. Oh no the name. Narrative is how he aloma right. Oh yeah and that's she's so appreciative. No that's right and her family's just indebted to us forever. we agree i. I came out strong against us. Because you can go into the congressional record in the nineties. You've all the somalians are wonderful. People and mogadishu is our fault because of our helicopter. Whatever we need to go bring in d. somalia kenya next thing you know. Minneapolis is
"kenya" Discussed on Practical AI: Machine Learning & Data Science
"La welcome to another practical. This is daniel white neck. I am a data scientist with s. i. l. international and. I'm very excited today. To be joined from kenya by j patel who is technology and analytics manager jack rhonda health and southie russia secker on who is executive director in africa of jock. Rhonda health welcome. Thank you thanks for having a spaniel. yeah it's wonderful to talk to you both. We've already had a lot of great conversation even before we started recording. So i'm really excited about this. Maybe the could you give us a little bit of an introduction to jack around and some of the things you're doing and how it came about. Yeah absolutely so jock. Rhonda's a nonprofit organization networks in kenya primarily in africa and the challenge. Were trying to address is one of the fact that mothers and babies die during childbirth in this part of the world probably six or seven times more frequently than happens in more developed countries in north america in europe. We recognize that. It's not really a question of not having enough hospitals or providers or services although you know there's certainly challenges there but the quality of care so the kinds of care that are being provided really needs to improve and this has been shown you know in the literature By many many other groups as well as ours. And so jack. Rhonda works with governments with the government hospitals in country to try and improve quality of care. That's being delivered hospitals and we do that by using low cost scalable solutions that can be deployed within government hospitals to increase the number of moms who are seeking care at the right time in the right place and to improve the cure. They're receiving from providers when they actually get a hospital and that's where our digital house tools. Come in there. One of those low cost solutions that were delivering government books. Yeah that's awesome Really really appreciate your work in this area. Jay maybe you could sort of give some context. So that's a a wonderful story and and set up and context but southey you mentioned digital tools. Maybe jay you could let us know. Hey where does a and lpn. These sorts of things fit in. So why are we talking about this. On the practical. Ai podcast sure. It so what happens when a mother enrolls in our service is that she will. I go to one of these. so far. Seven hundred public health facilities that were partnering with the service and then we will start sending her messages about her health. The health of our baby but a pregnancy and messages include everything from the attrition. All the way up to dangerous signs and she can ask us any questions that she has at no charge. This is primarily run all off of s. Again it's free to the mother yet. Maybe you could. Because i think a lot of times at least in many people's context they might be thinking about chad as like a little window pop up on their customer service site or something but it sounds like you're focused primarily on sms. Is that right. that's correct. We checked with our users and more than half of them are still using feature phone so even though mobile phone penetration in kenya is in the high nineties a lot of users don't have smartphones and are still using the old nokia phones. Sure an n. how So you're having these conversations. When did you start thinking. Abou- what machine learning or lp sort of techniques could benefit you. How did that come about originally as gonna sort of tell the story from the perspective of how jay came to be part of the team. That'd be office you know. We launched a service now for years ago with two hundred malls. Yeah we're super excited. That would be two hundred bonds using the platform. It was an accident that we actually opened up two way communication for free. We didn't originally intended for that. We just thought will send mum's a bunch of messages metal improve their knowledge about pregnancy. And then i distinctly remember one of our program team members coming in saying. Hey these moms are asking questions. I've been answering them but the questions are increasing so it turned out. We had learnt of this latent demand for just a whole bunch of questions needing to be answered back to what jake was talking about. Many of these moms had teacher funds many. Don't use date on a regular basis because it's still relatively expensive here and so googling something isn't really an option the complexity of language when you google something i mean we. All know is really hard so the minute. They realized someone was sending the messages about their pregnancy. They started sending in questions. The question volume started increasing as we started to more and more moms. We're getting to hundreds of miles per months. Joe thousand mumps per month where at almost one hundred thousand per month now and we pretty early realized early on realize that we need a way to triage the questions coming in so some of the moms were asking about you. Know what can i eat for during pregnancy. is it okay to eat. Cod does for example which is surprisingly common question that we get out of. You know every thirty questions we get asked one or two of them will be really serious among may say i'm bleeding. What should i do and we recognize that if we sort of did a first in first out approach to answering questions we missed that mom or relate to answering on needed to know about bleeding so our journey to think about machine learning actually came in thinking about. How do we effectively categorize these messages. And i had this is when we had a tiny team. I had been messing about with dialogue flow to see if we put some of the conversations in an quickly you know in addition to realizing that we were on boarding more and more users recognizing that we actually needed someone with a lot more development expertise to come to the team. And which is how. Jay comes into the picture and bennett changes the way we do do business with these incoming questions. Happy to now handover today to talk about how he actually solve this child. Sure yeah just before we kick it over there. I guess so. You mentioned a dialogue flow. Southie which is offering from google to help build chat conversations. And that sort of thing when you started looking to solve this problem. Was it clear that i guess machine learning and ai even could provide a solution or was that still something that was relatively unclear. You just knew that know. Technology needed to be brought to the table. In new tech needed to be brought to the table. i was actually in the ecosystem here in nairobi. There's a number of people working on chat bots and so the original thought was okay. Maybe there's also a chat bot opportunity here where we don't even need people at the other end answering questions and we can grab conversational histories you know ten classification et cetera et cetera..
Turning Pairs Into Bluffs... Good or Bad?
"Talk about this jackson. Hand here you can. You can dive into the details. Sure so hand starts out with me. The cutoff opening jack off suit this bottom. Mrs like bottom of range is yeah. This is going to be like this is. This is the bottom of my tax all suit officer tax ranch for sure Not opening anything worse than this gets folded around to the big blind to believe is a rag who flats flop queen of spades five spades. Eight of clubs the big blind checks i think see strategy can go lots of different ways especially with the gutter like two overs to middle. I think betting third here is fine with your range. Think this hand can also go in like your big bet categories. Sometimes if you're playing a big bet and check strategy. I decided to check this one. I think i really want to get into details. I think like jackson with a spade. I would certainly Throw into the big bet. Category just the naked gutter. I decided to check back. I just realized yawned. While you were talking. The youtube audience just see sees me yawning. While you're talking about your betting strategy for what it's worth. I spent a whole day watching the braves play in the sun so i need a little bit of a nap. If you're watching me on youtube you can tell like i. Don't get in the son very much. It's pretty clear not that your commentary on your seabed. Strategy is boring on the flop precaution. I'll i'll let you have young. Have one young so you go check the attorneys at ten of diamonds. So you turn second pair now keep going on what happens here on the term big blind Goes with a pretty big thirty five dollars to fifty no way. I'm folding jackson. Here we have the best end if you don't have out to improve just lots and lots of for the big to pull from on this tour to tone on a very straight e board so Don't think i'm going to do anything else. But call with ten. Jack and i mean you need twenty nine percent equity to continue and there's just not a world where you don't have twenty nine percent with your hand against the range so pretty slam dunk easy mode call and now you river. The to pair. The final board is queen of spades five. Spades eight of clubs. Ten of diamonds. Jack of diamonds. So you're ever to pair and villain. Does this little ditty a little bit of an overbid here down light over but hundred twenty five percent about one forty eight and a one twenty one and now i guess. Tell me. tell me your line of thinking here that leads to this thing that you do okay so when i'm really tired so it's going to be a handle on this one. When the villain when villanova richer assuming his range is going to be just straits like nine x four value and a handful of bluffs like brick spades or you know six seven sorts of hands for his bluffs thought that maybe i could get him to fold nine next year. I just jammed given that. I know for fact that like he never has as king and i can certainly have as king Taking this line. The as kenya's for sure that i would check back on the slop and you know calling the bet on the turn once i have choo overs nut. Gutter is pretty reasonable as well. You know what. I'm jamming here like. I'm clearly like trying to like out nine some of the time. I don't know how often that happens. I'm like really praying. He doesn't have canine. That's like a big of a concern. Because i assume you just never ever full king nine. I just ripped it here with two pair trying to get them to fold everything
"kenya" Discussed on Talking Biotech Podcast
"An emphasis on biotechnology. And the good things we can do for people and the planet. My name's kevin full professor of podcast host and someone who cares a lot about science communication. Someone who's grateful to have a front seat at the newest innovation. I one of the things i care about. The most is getting technology to farmers especially those in emerging economies and farmers in the developing world. Have long needed the tools of biotechnology but they frequently been slow to reach today. We'll talk about a case where that barrier is now gone. We're speaking with professor. Douglas miano. he's at the university of nairobi in nairobi kenya. So welcome to the podcast. Dr miano thank you. I'm very glad you were able to join us. So you're in kenya. Kenya is a is a region of africa. That grows cassava. Could you tell us. About what cassava is and how important it is to the populations in those regions. Cassava is one of the most important crops in the in the country and region. Of course the main crop is maize. But we do have the crops at coming to feed as Deficits when the ms is not in plenty and cassava ranked high especially in eighty s. Where the lynn for is not a large amount of the in four does not go for a long period of time. 'cause i what comes in handy because it can be to even when we started was honored very high. No that's great and so it is good food staple for that reason. How important is it is. It is something that either in kenya or an africa or in a. Let's say around the world. How much is cassava consumed. Thank you has is a crop that is consumed by over six hundred million people in the majority of these are in africa. And now when you come to suffer petty john it's One of the main crops in some of the countries surrounding in kenya and surrounding The the country of kenya including uganda. Tanzania add wanda booby and those countries in some parts of this country's the people depend on the crop adduced. They have to eat casella at once in a d and therefore for the children they have to survive depending on now on the crop so when that is enough we know that the people are weapon. It's very good. I think in in the united states in west. We don't appreciate how important cassava is. You said six hundred million people so you know that's One in ten people in on the planet is dependent upon this crops. It's very very important crop. So when people eat cassava what what do they consume the leaves or do they consume the root of the stem. or how how do we consume cassava. The main pat on the crop that is consumed is the route. We the storage route. That is way. Add that most of the touch is stored so when a biscuit cutter any talk about kosova consumption in we thinking about the kosovar routes this story but we also do have some pets of the where the us as the the leaves vegetables. But of course you appreciate that s. Tens are also important in terms of the printing because the main propagation material so yes saying that roots are the most important as food that leaves cannot abuse at vegetables in some parts of the of the but he also use kazaa catching s. The remains much for propagation. Okay very good. Thank you so i guess the big problem. That are the threats but you mentioned. It's a reasonably resilient crop with respect to drought but what about disease how how subject to disease is cassava. We do have a number of diseases that affect casella but the main two main diseases is the cost are caused by viruses. One is cassava mosaic. Disease and one is cassava. Brown's cheek disease kosovo must hike disease affects more of their about growled that growing part menu. Why are there must brown stick deceased affect more of the roots and deaf damages haute is biscuit have been consumed. Yeah so the brown-streaked diseases as one. That i'm familiar with. How is that transmitted from one. Plant to another dad. Different means of transmission. The main one especially when kosovo is growing in the field is through insects. The vector that transmit the virus is a white fries so as when we especially in the tropics. We do have hypoc traditions of the height fries. And now of course we appreciate that The white fries and the passerby that throughout the that the because of the initial much conditions. So these are the victors transmit the white the last but you also do have another method of transmission and this is by cuttings when you propagate materials i from one crop to the other we are using this ticks which you have cat from the crop that is already going after after this thing sold if it was infected then you are able to transmit it to the next season and i understand that this can be difficult disease to detect at least the brown streak virus can be a difficult disease to detect early so a farmer may grow crops for a whole season and not realize that that it's not a good crop for sale is that true and that is the main main digit because that you know the extent of damage during harvesting and at that time the season is already allowed you have taken am nine months to a year or now are more to know that you don't have a crop so it's a big problem because you cannot be able to tear before the has that that the extent of damage and can you tell me more about the farmers are they small farmers maybe one to five acres or are they big industrial farms. We don't have out of fun mass. Who had been cassava for for industrial purposes. Most of it is used for consumption. So the famous avenue growing in one to two hectares of land are about maybe three to five acres of so majority are using for subsistence. Sali's minute groomed for food and muscle for the consumption at the household level. That's a really important point for us to make because sometimes people feel that technology is all for industry. But this is technology for people and we'll talk about the technology here in a second but in general food security in east. Africa in kenya are highly dependent upon cassava. So that that's pretty true right. It's too and especially that we do have two main parts of the country. We chatted produce cassava and Virat we have western patch of the of the of kenya where produce about sixty percent and consumes consumed sixty percent of the casella we do have the coastal region which consumed reduces and consumed about that japan of the crop and the rest about ten percent is a in the central region which the central part of the country so as bishop in western kenya where hamas depend on the crop for food on data bases. So it is becomes a critical crop because you know that If you.

Yeah I guess for the people who don't really know blockage. This is a new audience and you net net flicks. So it's quite understandable and it's based off his life as his sade many many many times but I think people are just unsatisfied with his answer. I guess there's a difference between being clear in your Onta and not accepting what the answer is. Yeah because I think people expect slightly more definitely things in Kiev and to me his his at least regardless of how he's sort of at least people are trying to portray him as a one trick pony. He's doing something that he's sort of an and if it's based off his life fair enough yeah. You can't really criticize. Anyone says everything. He's doing his best of his life. Because that's all he knows Kudos Fair enough. I'm going to just is you for that. Yeah so we've seen a lot of A. He's getting to not really into that because at least for me. He's one of the block creators out there doing stuff. But I think there's also a distinction that because you know we have a lovely array at some red copy. I think it was a Golden Globes. Say she's just going to root for everyone that's black right which is super cute. Which is a great sort of sentiment? But then there's also another component of yes we can. We can say how we truly feel about it if we not necessarily love it but also at the same time. I guess holding each other accountable in a way we can. I feel like this is what I think would got into this in one episode later by he speaks to this in blockade. He does call this sort of issue where you get sort of two levels of what together facade around any sort of block creation out. There and Toronto breakthrough is what a simple straightforward as you might like and there's a lot of nuances around that and it's delegates delegates object and whatever it is that you put out to the world just know there's like two layers to it because when you when he meets a. I personally as a blockbuster and not watch it out. Have my glasses and accept that I'll have is towards anything. A blockbuster thousand creates you also talk about black tax. I give blocked extra any sort of thing. Blockbuster grits because Fox aches me you made by being able to make it. You have made it well. Why false personally as was like. Oh I okay but the first few episodes I enjoyed up until I think he went up but it was good. It was sort of funny until episode six eight. That's quite a good track. How good laugh in that and a solo reminded me of what modern family if had a sort of diverse cost? Look like he's modern family. Just finished right. I if you've listened to the cost I don't watch a lot of either. I tried to keep my plate with the same sort of flavorings I like to rewatch shows instead of branching out and having more quantity But in saying that I DID WATCH MODERN FAMILY. I think at least two seasons but essentially I off an ot continuing to watch it for a lot longer than he needed to. You even dropped off somewhere To us six so with my limited knowledge and a bit more TS knowledge. We watched the last episode of modern family and literally. Nothing changed a. It could have been anywhere throughout the time. Line like literally aside from them getting older. Just nothing happened it. Just breckenridge had way more character development. Both than they did some off some development. Yeah their character was developing on each other. Not If you put thought in there can I say my mom had a heart attack when they changed the active Ridge because obviously he's in the wall when we start our earn gossip channel spilling the OT but for now. Let'S GET BLACK UP GETS. Let's get back to black Well I guess maybe go through my first impressions I actually didn't know. Can You barris co-created America's next top model unless I'm obsessed with something I don't really watch interviews read credits and that sort of thing? So I didn't really know I knew blackish was around. I think like if you'd be watching it I would be like I'll just like dip in and out but I wouldn't really watch black Domingo. Yeah call it's and then I felt like I felt like out of nowhere. It's sprouted those spin-offs shores Saint Martin's quite big. Little was cute meeting I I've never really been familiar with Kenya. Maris's sort of filmography all any any sort of his work I remember recently lane away was on instagram live. It might have been for twenty finale but she was on instagram. Live for whatever reason And she was talking about. Can you barris saying the first time that Kenya totally in a way that he was going to be acting in the lead of the show? She was confused because she knows Kenya and she couldn't see him in that sort of role so I thought that was quite interesting but yeah. I really didn't know anything about so. I know a lot of a disgruntlement. No I like Qantas go back to. Kwan's a low the qualms that people have is. It's recycling like it's the same people saying the same sort of characters the same sort of story lines. You know the same sort of family models and that sort of thing being copied and pasted right black ish like a F- Even Maris's admits does well. If we do get time later on in the episode I do want to explore the whole concept of people doing the same shit over and over and when it's okay when it's not okay but Leslie that to the side because We obviously have a lot to go through just talking about black AF. In general I fucking loved it I also love insecure. GonNa stalkers was episode. If you want to know what rated insecure but I feel like recently not just like black shirts but just shows in general not even just people have called just shows in general of very self aware. Sometimes it can it can swing to the pendulum or being super PC and super preachy And it just becomes to work for you man And sometimes it can also swing to the other side of the pendulum or some people might argue is the same side of the pendulum where it's disingenuous right and by not wanting to offend anyone. You're not necessarily saying anything all. You're not really contributing anything. That's new in the sort of dialogue right and you know in in this sort of time in these shows that we have we have a very conscious sort of penmanship in regards to these shores. Sometimes like I said sometimes it is grading in its heavy-handed SORTA managing but I don't feel like black AF was sharp. I feel like black AF. If you allow it to not to say you haven't but if you allow black af into your heart cockles. It can really resonate in many ways. I guess I think some of it are really took his tongue in cheek as well. Oh yes so. Because it's not I didn't take it is Kenya Bar is trying to portray the whole block community as this. Because that's what he was trying to do at least from my perspective. Yes the name is called a block Af. I didn't take it literally as black label will be like this or black people alike. This yeah so in many ways I think most of the qualms once he removed that sort of via away from it. Then you could truly start to understand what he's trying to do and enjoyed for what it is. I also think it's it's an interesting story because it's not it's not just that. Kenya Barris is black. It's also that he's creative. It's also that is super super mega successful. We're not talking about someone that contributes to the bake sale like these characters are fucking rich right and they they will squander it or they will thrive in it however they want to To that painting.
