Can One Deal Change Your Life?
"Hey happy friday last a little bit different in front of a studio audience today. Well we never have a studio audience but it is definitely different. It is different vibe here. We were out of the studio today. Where your house. Where at my house was a little bit different vibe. We got baby sleeping in one room getting ready in another room and do feel like Watch my volume. Because we're like right next to his his room his room. Yeah he's got a white noise machine so it's keeping him down and keeping quiet. We won't hear that good and my office is just too loud for us to work on ancient computer that you gotta have like an actual fan outside the computer to blow on it. Keep it keep it cool. Yeah that's just because i'm running so many gigabytes and terabytes her two bites the hurts and you gotta keep the actual caveman inside their cool. He's given away on his tablet. Today's topic can one deal. Or if one deal really changes your life and we kind of talked about this beforehand and i felt like it was obvious but gave me the impression that you thought different. I don't think so. Here's my thought process behind. This topic is so many people are looking for that one deal. That's going to change your life in typically. It's when their brand new. Like i just need to work as one time and you know life's going to be so much better so they chased this this this thought process of. I can only do it. If i'd make a hundred thousand dollars i'm gonna make a million dollars make this fifty thousand lives. She's gonna be too much better but reality yet might make life a little bit easier. I don't know if it changes your whole life. Yeah i don't know. I guess it depends on the size of the deal because i think it could and it can free up somewhat. I mean let's just say. I don't know say you're very much living paycheck to paycheck and trying to get this business off the ground and you nail one. Let's just even say it's twenty thousand nonprofit now you got twenty grand in your pocket. That is life changing. You're no longer has stressed at that number. Goes up four hundred thousand dollar profit or like you know. Josh cleared a million dollars now. Technically that was subdivided into more deals but it was just one deal he bought. Yeah that changes things dramatically. Yeah i get that but should you be focusing on the one deal to change your life or should be focusing on consistent profitable deals. That's a different question. I am i. Maybe that's the way it should be in my mind. That's where that secondary question comes in. And where you should be thinking about this like this. I i see a see so many people get stuck in this guy to get one deal so it changes my life. But they put so much pressure on it and it doesn't work quite the way they want to. Then they're they're bummed out and they're not happy they're not they're just they're stuck in this mindset of it didn't work you know khuda made this other. Those are definitely the people that are hoping for that pie in the sky. I hate my job. i hate my life. I have to have that one make hundred grand on those are the thing that they should be focused on. It's my opinion is that they should be more focused on building a successful business. Whether you're making five thousand ten thousand one hundred thousand prophet right. The hard part. Everybody's been at that have been in that situation as like focusing one year out where the company could be the i. I'm with you. i agree with that. I have seen in the five years. We've been in this industry. I have seen countless guys nail homerun. Just knock it out. The park make six figures may close to six figures on a deal and think that they've got it figured out quit their job they. They're they go take a bunch of vacations. They're doing all this. Because man if i did it once i can do it again. And then their business goes to shit and they'd never focused on how to have that core business of what's always gonna turn deals for them and what's gonna make money you're right i mean but that's totally different question. I think here. Here's how. I responded that can change the trajectory of your life. One hundred percent because plum got started off one deal and got started off the the apartment building together. So did that change projector for us. Yeah did did it. Change my life will. It gave me more opportunity to do more deals. But it didn't fix it for the rest of ever but you didn't. You wouldn't say that there was more comfort does not even take that deal. But just take a deal. You make one hundred grand on. Are you all of a sudden more comfortable. Because if you don't have to reinvest that if you don't have to live on that it's just an extra hundred grand to made that you're argue like okay. Life's life got less pressure right but does that does that. Change like change your whole being. I think it changes directory. It makes you ramp up a little faster. It gives you a little breathing room so it makes life easier. But i guess i'm thinking does it. Does it change living in mansions and flan private jets and things like that. So far the reach for most people. I mean the one percents get that. Yeah maybe yeah maybe and we actually we. Just look that up the other day okay. I don't know if we talked about that on the show to be a one percenter in texas you have to make over five hundred sixty five thousand a year. Yeah

Board, last year and part of this year. So this is a a wide ranging conversation with a crew tennis. Insider we talk a bit about tennis in twenty twenty the we talk about this more stories from. Welders career in also been about how to get into tennis There are roles into score even if. You do not hit a ball at a professional level and weller someone who spent his whole career in tennis and only a few of those as a player. So here's a wide ranging conversation with a true tennis insider. Here's Willer Evans first of all Weller Evans thank you for. Thank you for doing this I appreciate this. Model John It's It's a pleasure. I have to congratulate you in that You know it's to be quite Khuda get both Jerry. Seinfeld, and Weller Evans. As interviews within a month of one another. Low Bar just make a few jokes in Yiddish and everyone everyone goes home. Happy. No but we passed up no opportunity to talk tennis and I was saying in the Intro I feel like you are. You're the perfect person to help make some sense of these strange times because you are someone, it's always understood the mechanics and have the insider perspective. and. Our Voice of reason and I figured I wanNA hear a bit about your backstory in some sort of historic progressives. But but help us make sense of tennis in Twenty Twenty How How are you sensing? This is going and what's your take on sort of gray tennis in this work around year? Well I think we're fortunate to be playing tennis at all and to actually have had. Three of the four slams played. This year I think is a remarkable accomplishment. Don't you? Yep Absolutely. especially. Given the challenges of of tennis compared to other sports You know it's it's not it's not as simple as. You, you've got thirty teens in everyone's GonNa, lock themselves in a bubble together. To, two hundred and fifty six players from all over the world is is a big challenge. What do you make about the rest of it? I? Mean we have. Cologne one in Cologne to this week, which sounds like Competing. Hugo boss. Fragrance collection we have carry over points we have. To joke of, it's not playing Paris because he's disincentivize because of the point structure what's your take on? Tennis outside of outside of the three majors we were able to play. Well just. To sort of focus for a second on the ranking system. And and what we had to do and I apologize in advance for referring. To. The ATP as we but when you work for an Organization for twenty five years and you stay so closely connected to it it's inevitable that you end up referring to what they do as as we but. You know. The ranking system has to be addressed. Once we took such a long off from tournaments. and. You enter. That challenge you know with the premise that there's not going to be a perfect system. Heck. Probably, our current ranking system is not perfect. But realizing that there's probably not even an optimum way to accomplish all that needs to be accomplished. So is it? It really was a challenge for sure but You know I think the ATP's priority was always to. Try to continue to have a fair and accurate evaluation of. Player on court performance, which also has credibility with our fans and I think if you look at the rankings as they currently stand I, think the ADP has accomplished. You know accomplish that goal. With Roger. Not Be fit enough to play the world tour finals I would. Like to think that a a guy who's been really hot since we return to the court Andrei Rubel who actually was was. INFLA-. Go even before the suspension is going to make the world tour finals I'm sure there are people who? Are. Going ask. Why Medvedev? is going to be in there when he hasn't really. You. Duplicated. The success that he had last year an-and. CARNOT boost has. Left back into everybody's consciousness and. He may or may not make it to London. So I'm sure they'll be people who. You might question that but I think on the whole the ranking system and the rankings that we have currently even given the the cogut accommodations that were made. With with our fats.
Revenge, Best Served Loud
"With, arguably one of the greatest opening riffs and Classic Rock Barracuda was written by Anna Nancy Wilson together with Guitarist Roger Fisher and Drummer Michael Derosier. It was written at a time when there was friction between the band and their label to put things mildly. The song appears on the album little queen their first album with CBS. Portrait. Records. They'd left their old label mushroom records after a contract dispute and mushroom was none too happy. Because according to mushroom heart owed them a second album. They not only sued the band for breach of contract and try to block the release of the CBS album but released magazine an album made up of songs that Hart had recorded but didn't think we're good enough to release as well as some live recordings needed to get it up to album length. The dispute dragged on and eventually the court decided that heart was free to sign with a new label but mushroom was indeed a second album. So. Heart went back to the studio to rerecord remix edit and re sequence the magazine recordings in a marathon session over four days. A court ordered guard actually stood nearby to make sure the master tapes weren't being erased. Heart eventually came out on top. As not only did the album little queen outsell magazine by a wide margin. The debacle gave the band the distinction of having all three of their albums on the charts at the same time. The court case wasn't the only reason. The Wilson Sisters in company were mad at mushroom records. After the first album became a million seller mushroom took out a full page ad in rolling stone touting the band's success using the headline million to one shot sells a million. No problem so far. The AD looks like the front page of a tabloid newspaper and included a photo from the Dream Boat Anne album cover shoot. The caption read. Hearts Wilson Sisters confess it was only our first time. Implying the sisters had an incestuous lesbian affair. Shortly. After this ad appeared a Detroit radio promoter asked an Wilson where her was. She assumed he meant her then boyfriend band manager Michael Fisher. But when the reporter clarified, he was referring to her sister Nancy and was understandably outraged and retreated to her hotel room to write. When she related the incident to Nancy to was outraged and join an in the writing session, contributing a melody and bridge. Nancy puts suitably angry music to the word to complete the song comparing the sleazy side of the Music Biz to a dangerous ill like fish. The song became an enduring classic and Barracuda remains one of the band's signature songs. Vera Khuda was test to another incident of severe irritation for the Wilson Sisters at. Against in two thousand eight. During that year's presidential campaign the song was used as the unofficial theme song for Republican Vice President Nominee Sarah Palin. The ALASKAN governor had apparently earned the nickname, Sarah? Barracuda as a high school basketball player for her competitive nature. The day after the song was played at the National Convention Anna. Nancy Wilson issued a statement reading. The. Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song nor would they have been granted that permission? We have asked the Republican campaign publicly not to use our music. We hope our wishes will be honored. Their wishes were not honored. As the Republican campaign pointed out, they had obtained the proper performance rights to the song from the record label and were under no obligation to get any further permission to use it. The Bar for performance rights being somewhat lower than the bar for commercial or video rights. With no legal recourse. The Wilson Sisters retaliated in the media telling entertainment weekly. Sarah Palin views and values in no way represent us as American women. We. Ask that our Song Barracuda no longer be used to promote her image. The Song Barracuda was written in the late seventy s as a scathing rant against the soloist corporate nature of the music business particularly for women. While, heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song the RNC. There's irony Republican strategists choice to make use of it. They're. The. Songs Co writer Roger Fisher was also anti Palin but he saw things differently telling Reuters. He was thrilled that the song was being used as it was a win win situation. He explained that while heart gets publicity and royalties the Republicans benefit from the ingenious placement of a kick ass. Song. He added that he would use some of the proceeds in a donation to the Obama campaign and thus the Republicans are now supporting Obama. See Kids. There's always a silver lining if we look for it.
Direct Connections With Jonny Mopar
"Did we talk about your road runner on the first episode, we did together of the show I. Don't want why don't you tell us the story? Yes. Aside from chargers and burnt up Khuda. Johnny and a whole host of other MO- pars. Johnny has also had a really awesome dude. You're roadrunners bad, ass. Tell us about your road.

Absolutely that okay. Man That card if I could find that exact car right now, I'd be a very happy man but. Tell us tell us the whole story about the road. All right. So Up in the high desert, which is I think it's like Apple Valley area out here. Not You know not that you would know where this is but anyway, it's it's it's a little bit of a stretch to get there from where I lived but I think it was in the recycler craigslist or something? I'm not even sure craigslist was around back then but I found this seventy roadrunner right And it was pretty sketchy description and stuff and I call the guy and he's like ads. Pretty. Roach Dow. But it does run. It's a three car I'm like all right has tiktok tack in it unlike. Allen go check this thing out so I was just dating my wife back. Then you know so I I I cook stir into going for a drive. You know a road trip up to go check out this car. And get there and it's like this. Lavender primer color in somebody rattled canned stripe on the hood. Had the Bulge Hood. And but Iran. And I was like, Oh, by had, we'll flares in the back which I didn't And I think I think I paid. I want to say was like Fifteen hundred bucks to two thousand dollars somewhere in there. Drug at home. And then I didn't like the color. So I black primaried the whole thing and then I drove it around a little bit but I didn't have it long and then I was starting to chip out the crap and you know the flares and the wheel wells the hated it, and then it's like, oh. God. Why did I opened this up just nasty like they just they just got in there with like sheet metal cutters and just like peeled the medal up and then just mud it you know. Was Nasty and then the right rear corner that car. It had been hit and then so somebody cut a clip off of another car I'm thinking a four door. And like grafted it into the car, they did a terrible job of doing it. So I I was just like this way too much for me. I'm I'm not gonNA take on the project like this so I think it was probably the recycler. Anyway this guy from same area Apple Valley calls me up. He's a tow truck driver and he's like a he was yeah a I I know that car seen that car up here stopped trying to buy that car that guy wouldn't sell it for years and years, and he's like, how did you get a hold of it and I'm like it was in the recycler He's I can't believe I. missed it.

Come back up on the weekend and all I had was like a really sketchy picture. Of the Blue Road runner, the sixty nine.
The Rise of the Ratty Muscle Cars
"Hello my friends and welcome back to another episode of talking Mo- part before we kick things off, I just wanted to announce that. In case you have not heard the build Mo- par project car has been chosen and we. The people have decided that the modern Hemi will be going into a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART superstock tribute car, so now Hemi pages is on the hunt for nineteen sixty eight dodge DART hardtop to use as the platform for the built. So if you or anyone you know is selling a nineteen sixty eight dodge DART. Please reach out to my friends over a Hemi pages. You can go to Henry Pages. Dot. Dot Com or even build. Mo-. Par Dot com and reach out to those guys and let him know what you got. This is going to be a really exciting build, and if you didn't get a chance to vote on the first round, be sure to vote in on the next rounds and also tell all your friends about this project. We need to blow this thing up. We need to get thousands. Hundreds of thousands hopefully, millions of people involved in this and just see what we can come up with as a community I'm sure we can cook up something crazy, so that should be really fun. Maybe you've got a moped project. Project you're building or maybe you just went out and bought yourself your I. Mo par. Maybe it's not a show car. Maybe it's a little ratty. That's what we're talking about here today. I WanNa talk about the rise of the ratty muscle cars, because it seems to me that in the past few years, these ratty muscle cars and radio trucks have blown up. They are huge right now and I think I have the answer as to why this is occurring, but you know. I think it's multifaceted, but I really liked the movement I think it's an awesome movement. I think. It opened some doors for people that would otherwise not be able. Able to get into a muscle car. I think it lowers the barrier for entry for people like myself that don't have a lot of money can't buy show winning car that can't buy a fully restored Khuda or something crazy like that, but maybe you found a ratty mo par in your local classifieds for a couple of grand that needed a little bit of work, but you could tow it home and get running and driving lickety-split and get it on the road. That is Iraqi muscle car, and that's what I like to see. I love to see these cars on the road and not rotting into the ground. I think it's awesome. So now that we're warmed up, let's get this show on the road. This week project car the week is actually a truck that was posted on Wednesday July twenty, second at three PM, and going with the theme of ratty muscle cars and ratty trucks I thought this was a perfect fit, and it also happens to be really cool and has a ton of potential and would make an excellent project vehicle for anybody that wants to get in the Mo- par game and doesn't have a lot of coin in their pocket, so let's get into the at. Nineteen Seventy Dodge D. One hundred short box, five, thousand, six, hundred ninety five dollars Columbia Falls Montana lowered six inches the right way twenty inch wheels out back in eighteen inch up front wheels and tires, brand, new three eighteen auto, call or text titles. Status is clean. All right folks what we have here is what appears to be a running driving nineteen seventy truck. And it's got a cool Patina on it. It is not a show truck by any means if you think you're going to get. Show quality paint, and no dense dings or bumps bruises. You are wrong now. In case you're new to the show. I am a huge fan of mope par trucks and especially the nineteen seventy two to nineteen eighty, because I do have seventy six myself but I really love the early swept lines, and they have a ton of potential, but the good thing about trucks. For some reason they look amazing when their team it out. Maybe it's just me and now don't get me wrong I. Do love a beautiful. Beautiful Show Truck I. Love Him. I think they're gorgeous. There's something about an old. You know for lack of a better term farm truck that I really like especially ones that are slightly customized. You know little lowered with some nice wheels. They just have a personality and its personality that I really liked the nice thing about this one is that runs drives so like many of the other project cars? We've talked about the past. You can go out and enjoy this thing while you work on it this. This thing is good to go scout brand, new wheels and tires on it, and you know what it runs and drives. It's got a three eighteen in it, so you can keep three eighteen, or you can upgrade. Get a modern. Hemi, you know five thousand this. You could probably get this trump for five grand,
Facial Recognition Leads To False Arrest Of Black Man
"Now there's a technology out there that I bet would have benefited from having ethics built into it from the beginning, rather than putting it into the hands of people and finding out. Oh, wait, there are problems with it, and that technology is facial recognition In fact, Boston has joined cities like San, Francisco Oakland California and Cambridge Massachusetts in prohibiting the use of facial recognition technology for most municipal uses. They made exceptions for unlocking your phone or using facial recognition to preserve privacy in in which case the facial recognition software is just removing faces. It doesn't have to tell you who they are basically if it's not identifying you or just looking for faces, you can't use it. Cities are banning facial recognition over the fears of its misuse. All they shall recognition della technology has some rate of false identification, and that's a higher rate among people with darker skin. Since machine learning is often trained on data sets of predominantly lighter skinned people. In fact, we now have an example of that in the real world, the ACLU of Michigan has lodged a complaint in Detroit Wednesday alleging that a black man spent thirty hours in custody after facial recognition software mistakenly matched him with a shoplifting suspect. He is no longer suspected of being the shoplifter, but he had this be under arrest for thirty hours before they realized they had the wrong person. The match was made in facial recognition from the Michigan. State polices digital image analysis section, which uses software from rank, one computing, not using Microsoft not using Amazon, not using any of the big ones like IBM. Who are all saying well? We're going to hold off using somebody else. Michigan police rank one guidelines do say that arrests should not be made on the basis of facial recognition, and it's unclear at this point. If the police had other evidence again other evidence, that was wrong, but other evidence that may of pointed and giving them to reason to suspect this man but the ACLU says it doesn't matter. You shouldn't have been using facial recognition in this arrest because it wasn't him. The worry I would have always had about this sort of thing is if they make it too much of a factor in the arrest too much of the reason why you're arresting them or too much of the burden of proof is on his on the match that they got from facial recognition. Them what would happen is I. Don't know I'd end up. Some actor who looks like me would get in trouble for doing a terrible thing, and then I would suddenly be a database because I kind of looked like that guy. They got a false positive because I look like him. was gonNA use an exact example, but I'm not going to want to get myself in trouble, but look there's an actor I look like because all I'm saying anyway, the point is. Yeah I. Don't want I. Don't want that to be i. mean it makes these things these things they get developed and make sense as like supporting arguments right like if if you've got other evidence that points to the thing, and you say well, and also there's the facial recognition. It's not the. But it's this other thing. We gotta figure out where that is yeah I. Mean that's I mean at the very least. Yes, supporting something else the fact that the police in Michigan and also ranked one which makes the software have guidelines saying well, this should happen based on facial recognition. There may be other you know parameters here, and like you said Tom that that's not necessarily known, but it was just facial recognition. I mean you can't just have a guideline. Sane probably shouldn't do that. It's not enough information it should be. You legally cannot do that and if you do that, you're in trouble. Yeah, I mean. If if the case is, they just use facial recognition to bring the guy in. Then it becomes a question of. Why didn't you follow the guidelines? Should the guidelines be law That is one aspect of this conversation. If they say look facial recognition just pointed us to the guy. And then we found out he was in the store that day he was driving a car that fit the description of. Of the shoplifter, you know it was just a case of mistaken identity because he fit, the description could have happened to anybody. That's still a problem because my guess is. If it weren't for facial recognition, they wouldn't have bothered this person. They would have gone. They wouldn't have made him stay in a jail cell for thirty hours. They wouldn't have arrested him in front of his wife and two little daughters. You can say well okay, but how often does that happen? I think we're all very clear that for black people and happens all too often, and having another instance of it certainly isn't helping. Yeah, to be to be to have been somewhere. You know at a at A. Coincidental time yeah, and maybe driving a similar car, and that sort of thing it's like okay. Well suspects. Get questioned all the time and you know if they're not the right person or it's. It's deemed that they they aren't guilty. After all, that's something that were used to. That happens all the time, but yeah, the whole facial recognition thing is like if that's sort of the the nail in the coffin of like well, we got these three things you know. Where were you at three PM? That Dan? Oh, you just happened to. To look a lot like this. Other person must be i. mean that's that's. That's a real problem. Well, that's where the guidelines are not being violated right, but the fact that you had the facial recognition like you said Dow becomes the the Khuda gross at to say like we might have let the guy go to say well. Don't leave town. You're a person of interest, but instead we had the facial recognition that may have given them the confidence to like. Let's just arrest. Him could be other things to of course, yeah.
Adam Greenwood and Dr. Arlene Astell discuss alleviating loneliness in care homes
"So we'll get started here The audience wants to know what we're talking about today so I'm going to give each of your chance to describe the product and say this is what we're doing. This is the advent of it and this is why it matters so adam go ahead started for us last year when I watched a tedtalk. Khuda what makes a good life by Robert Loading and he said a Hob- professor and he was talking about the Harvard Study of Adult Development I'm sure you guys are aware of it. Seventy five years seven hundred plus men and then about two thousand that children where they were looking at the work the hung life and the health people from lots of different socio economic backgrounds For for an unprecedented length of time and the. I suppose what the amazing results were that it wasn't about upbringing. It wasn't about health or money. It's good relationships. Good relationships keep us happier and healthier Social connections all good for us and ultimately loneliness kills and I was doing some research And I came across a piece by a UK charity Kool aid UK and they said that around half a million older people. So that's sixty five plus you can go as long as a week without speaking to another person We as an agency is digital digital agency have been looking at ways that we could use voice. Tech- Lots of different Scenarios over the last two years and this is something that I felt really stormy about And so we wanted to find out if we could use voice tech- to help to tackle the problem of loneliness. In order people excellent Arlene so my interest in this has come from working with older people and trying to get technology into their hands to make lives better The this many existing off the shelf devices and APPs we can download really have functions that can benefit people but often the pros has tried to connect people with the technology trying to find the people who will benefit has being challenging particularly came to us with some work. A few years ago is set to pay 'em a network of Ph D. students who are looking at Health and wellbeing in later life. And how technology could help and one of them was very interested to work with the the people who are really hard to reach people who are lonely. The people who are isolated who may be not having contact with services but sitting in their own homes with Shrinking social network shrinking an ability to to make contact to make new contacts. And how could we stop to to look at where they emerging technologies could could assist them and particularly things like Anything would make new social connections so I was up to see delighted to To be connected with with Adam and Greenwood Campbell when they wanted to start looking at putting boys technology to to tackle loneliness excellent. So what is the product do? And how do you deploy it? And what's been the response what we wanted to do with this study. First of all was just find out if the if the acts of talking to voice assistance would help in in tackling learning us so what we did is So we've been working with an organization called Abbey Failed. I'm here in the UK they They have a bow About four hundred retirement living homes around you can't about seven thousand residents so We all stem if we'd introduce Alexis Google assistance into some of the residents rooms so that we could start to do some qualities studies about the Their effects on loneliness. And that's that's when we start to work with Arlene to help us to try and understand initially how to gauge loneliness in order to people And then often the study we could find out if it made any Tackled it in any way

I am woman our author. Kirsten Alexander was only a young girl at the time. But I do welcome you back to publish to not. I'm so glad to be here. Thank you second book. Fantastic being older than you at this time. I also remember Queensland being a bit of a backwater job. Joke Peterson disallowed gatherings. There was censorship and real stories about police corruption. And this is why. I'm going to get cursed and to start off by reading a bit from page. Two hundred and seventy seven. The book of the back of the book were starting at the ending. This part is spoken by Abbey. Who's one of the two narrators abby? And her brother. Charlie tell the story and riptides and Abbey's at Queensland University on campus and she says the students want change. They're hungry for it in other parts of Australia. People struggling to keep up with change. Feel like the hurtling into the future without helmets but out premier has dug his heels in and is resisting every attempt by the federal government to civilize. Queensland Peterson makes it clear. He loads students feminist darkies homos and communists he laughs at the media while sales estate over seas developers every bit of beach front and any land that can be mined and looks away as heritage listed buildings bulldozed in the dead of night. It doesn't seem to matter that he's barely able to string a sentence together. He rules with iron fisted resolve. Ooh This is a little bit like now. You mentioned abby husband. Mark is one of your characters. What's his job marks a TV journalist. And he's he's very political in nature and at that time. I think it mattered. I wouldn't say more than ever or certainly not more than now but it was very important. Queensland have an alternative voice There was an alternative voice in the radio. That was footer. No actually for troubles. Ed didn't exist at. This point. Came later but it was very important for the media to offer an alternative to what was being told to the people by the government. Yes so marks. A bit of a celebrity seen on the news of filing reports. He's also the husband and father but has the mate. Jim Tell us a bit about the dinner party. The party was when Abby and her husband go to Jim and his wife's place for dinner and I again. I'm I'm not sure that things that happened in the past. Don't don't just keep happening forever so this is probably something that could have happened last week. But Jim admires mark because mock santelli mocks famous. And he's got an audience and the women have to just play not groupies but they just have to sit and listen while the minute mile. One another and it's it it gets Abbey's Gart because she. She loves her husband. She admires his work but she knows that. There are a lot of people out there doing important things in hospitals and schools and making roads and cleaning up our garbage and they don't get this kind of education and of course you know Jim. Thanks his wife by giving her pet on the bottom for making a Nice Pavlova Louisville's leader attitude to women going back to union to finish her law degree. What does the Father Think about this? Well I think we can get accustomed to read from page one hundred one as the father said it was enough your mother nothing to scoff at. Its dignified work to take care of you. Home husband and raise a family and this he goes on so the father talking to his daughter says well. Why do you want to be a lawyer? Then what are you trying to prove? Martin's a good salary. You'll make life harder by being at university now. You have kids to look after who are doing that. I suppose you expect him to as well as his job. So you can go off and do what you want. Which by the way he flicks his hand angrily in my direction. Plenty of lawyers in the world without you. You don't need to show off now. Her father has also very distinct views of what son Charley is doing. What is he doing? I'm Charlie leaving his best live. He finished Uni and then he mocked around bit and took off to Bali where he serves and he Works in a restaurant. There aren't very many around that time a he and a couple of nights. I've been to cafe and Khuda near the beach pen. Just hasn't a good time. Sorry you know his his comeback and he knows he has to talk with his father but he feels that he's really grown away. Well let's let's get his point of view from page fifty six. Oh God I hit my reading drawing people mental Okay so Challenge wondering about if he went and had a beer with his dad. Would that be like what would we talk about how incredible it is to surf the endless breaker Illawarra to mind altering after mushrooms would he fades as chickens? We've reached the age where he wants my approval more than I want his. Which makes me feel kind of bad for him and makes him boring company? Every says he's worried about me being directionless but I reckon when I talk about my life in Bali his out of his depth maybe even jealous makes me tired to think about it so he has no this this mutual disrespect. I think between this the Connection Between Wartime Charlie surfing and abby very comfortable in knowing her skills in water currents the title is riptide. What's retired? I think a part of growing up in Queensland Brisbane is not on. The coast is a familiarity with water. We have to learn to swim very young. I grew up in Brisbane. I'm not sure if that was the same down here but we had to learn to swim very young. We spent a lot of time at the beach and going to various off the coast. Islands stride broken bribery. And so we all know about rips which are dangerous because it's the water pushing and pulling at the same time and you lose control of of where you WANNA go. So water is very important in Queensland Life I think and the idea of different forces pulling your round seemed to make sense to me as well as the memory of the father is a teacher and he teaches them about physics and Abby remembers learning about every action has having a reaction and Charlie talks about Karma so how these two lean. I'm I'm not enough of a philosopher to explain the difference between Action and reaction and and Action IN CONSEQUENCE. I guess calmer and the laws of motion but I do feel that. The idea of motion having consequence is yeah so on Australia. Day Nineteen seventy four. Ed Behead to cancel the neighbors neighborhood gathering. What can I be doing stand? There's there's a flood so they need to go rescue the neighbor. Louis Abbey's best friend and Louis envious of Abbey ability to be supermom or is she. You have happy thinking about the flood from page twenty eight right. This is This is after the flood is gone and flood slave a lot of Damage in their wake. The flood wasn't part of my plan. Not Part of any once. These few days will derail us for months. I know now that I should have recognized the flood as a warning accordion. Everything I thought I could control was uncontrollable life. Insistent persistent was about to take on new shapes Shimmery and unpredictable as petrol on a wave with giving you back story about all of this but the book actually starts on Friday the sixth of December Eddie has picked up Charlie from Brisbane where he's flown in from Bali and they drive into the file this farm. It's number of hours away and now Costa Alexandra's going to read the first paragraph of her book. Riptides Charlie is speaking. I wake when shots she reaches across man grabs the Steering Wheel. A cow honed. Braise white beams flare at us then pitched to the right for an instant? A rump of blue metal shines into the headlights. I elbow my sister out of the way and take the wheel leaning back hard so don't Slam my head into it. Abby flattens her hands against the dashboard as I break and strain to control our sideways skid. She screams my name. We sling to one side of the narrow dirt road and the other cast links the opposite way like wrong ends of a magnet made to meet we swelled to an angled stop pointing into scrappy land. So what happened This isn't giving away. Don't WANNA rate 'cause this all happens in the first paragraph right into it they. They've caused an accident as I say because there are two people in the car but obviously there was only one driver and they were both asleep. Both the driver and the passenger were sleep in. The car forced another driver off the road. Who was pregnant and she does her. There are police involved and Sergeant Roberts certainly wants to solve the mystery because they is a mystery. What's the mystery of the car accident? AGAIN. I I worry about giving away too much. But the the mystery is who was the woman and she what. She didn't just die in the car. She was outside the car she she was when the police found her she was lying on the ground in a way that makes no sense to them. She couldn't possibly have fallen that way and her window was down and there was a storm afterwards so none of it makes a lot of sense to them and they figure out fairly quickly that someone took her out of the car and Leho very carefully on the ground so there is the mystery and pick up the father bring back to Brisbane but he becomes the suspect lots of tension in the house and I wonder how the book will hold this because we know about this everything that's happened in the first paragraph and sort of you know. Mark is job as a journalist. He picks up this tension and then he's called away. Why Christmas Day? Why why not cold away. So he's moved out of the out of the household so we have a release of a little bit of tension for a little while. What happened seventy four Christmas Day? Oh I'm I'm Which which were we hitting. Sorry just cyclone Tracy sorry. Okay Yeah just to yes. There is a cyclone up north and our so he off to that and these. Epi feels leave with the self and her dilemma. It will make my life worst and possibly destroy the lives of everyone around me if I tell the truth. Better to hold it in and manage the pain now. This is Kirsten Alexander's great rotting that she can move the plot and still carry the tension oil very
Iridium's Pivotal Role In Our Past And ... Maybe Our Future?
"We're talking about iridium as show. What does this element tell us about dinosaurs? and how they went extinct. We're going to go back. Tens of millions of years ago to start. Yeah well we start and say like nineteen eighty. That's what I said Richard. I said one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty okay. Well that's actually. When an academic paper gets published by a group led by a father and son team from the a University of California at Berkeley Louis Alvarez the father of physicist and by the way Nobel Prize winner and his son Walter Alvarez? WHO's a geologist and they? We're interested in a specific period of time. In Earth's history it was a transition between two geologic periods the Cretaceous period and the Paleocene good ones too good period. Yeah so dinosaurs still roamed the earth during the Cretaceous period. But after that you don't find any of these dino bones except in our current dinosaurs birds. You're you know what I mean. I I do know what you mean. Yeah thinking of dinosaurs. Birds Birds Dinosaurs. Same thing it's sad. It's true so at any rate but the Alvarez's weren't actually trying to answer that big. Why did the dinosaurs go extinct? Mystery that point Walter and Louis Alvarez. We're trying to answer. Just one part of that riddle which is how quickly that transition between the two periods took place so walter trump off to Italy where there are rock outcrops that were laid down his sediment back at the time of that transition. Okay seems like a good idea. Why look at those rocks knocks well to get the back story? I talked to another Berkeley scientists. My name is Paul Renae. And I'm the director of the Berkeley Ju- Chronology Center any said the secret to figuring Out How fast. That transition happened involved measuring dust from outer space. That's constantly raining down on earth. Tiny amounts Louis Alvarez Walter's father her biggest physicist thought. Well you know we can determine that we can. We can make some reasonable assumptions about how much dust is coming in from from extraterrestrial sources. Okay extraterrestrial we're talking stuff from outside Earth or the atmosphere in Richard. Can I just say the fact that somebody thought thought about measuring cosmic dust to figure out the passage of time sixty million years ago is objectively awesome. It is and when you think about the dust coming from asteroids colliding with each other. It's even cooler and they were looking for particular stuff and In particular if we look at an element. That's rare on on earth but common in meteors in an element. That's rare on earth but common in asteroids Guess what we're talking about Matty I'm going to take out style and I'm GonNa say radium. Guess Excellent guests. Thank you are we. But what's the role of the dust here right well. Louis was operating unreasonable unreasonable assumption. which is that? This dust from meteors rains down on the earth. More or less constant rate. It's dust of course enriched with iridium. So I figured if they could measure is your how much iridium had built up in. This transitional layer. They would be able to tell. How long taken to accumulate? So I'm thinking sort of figuring out how much snow fell over a period of the time. If you know the rate at falls and how much is on the ground except this is tens of millions of years ago Roger Dodger tens of millions of years ago and the iridium doesn't Milton the sunlight so it sticks sticks around you can still see at sixty five or sixty six years later so so it didn't rate when they ran those calculations with the Alvarez's found was stunning. The results were so so extreme. That just just a the passage of a long time would not really explain this. It was many times greater than the amount amount of radium in this layer than expected just from this gradual accumulation so the conclusion they drew was that there had been some huge pulse of extraterrestrial Oriole's Joe Matter and the obvious conclusion that they quickly came to was that it was a large impact a large impact. We're talking to you asteroid did we are an asteroid They think the asteroid smashes into the earth destroying so much of life on earth and throwing up an enormous muscle mass of dust into the atmosphere. The dust itself caused mass extinctions but it also had iridium in it and it spread around the Earth so they realized this collision is a big one and and the conditions that resulted you know reasonably enough they thought they theorized killed off. These won't bring dinosaurs. You know what you're nobody ever thinks about that other life. I feel like it's always dinosaurs. Dinosaurs dinosaurs. I know you don't get little plastic models of marine for him. And if we're talking to you as I mentioned in this paper was published back in one thousand nine hundred eighty and back then. A catastrophic end seemed to mini scientists pretty far fetched because evolution takes place over millions of years so so a lot of scientists were expecting to see gradual changes. and and Paul Rennie says when the Alvarez has proposed this meteor theory created quite a stir in the community it did. Yeah I mean. It was originally not widely accepted but acceptance sort of came in waves and the biggest confirmation team win in the early nineties. There was the discovery of the crater on the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. A study published in. Today's issue of Science magazine appears to add weight to a theory that a giant media or struck the earth. Sixty five million years ago and what is now Mexico many scientists. This is the Intro to my story that aired in NPR back in Nineteen ninety-two. Some scientists. See this as evidence that helps prove their theory that the dinosaurs were wiped out by a giant asteroid or comet but as NPR NPR science correspondent Richard Harris reports the theories baby Richard Harris Science reporter even covering this story for a bit. I have indeed actually packs into the early nineteen eighties but that no dinosaur drug please and a really big asteroid could scatter iridium dust. Globally the question was. Where's the crater that a huge asteroid like that would make take a look and listen to all that? Join Your Voice you know I know well what what can be more fun than dead dinosaurs. Really Okay So. This study found the point of impact for the giant asteroid. Yes it was a crater one hundred ten miles across called Jiffy Lube and it was created by this asteroid that had a tremendous amount of explosive power. As you can. Well imagine sure so. When these geologist tested the age of the materials from the crater it turned out to date very closely to the mass extinction by the way? Dating methods. have been recalibrated calibrated since that paper. So scientists now say that catastrophe happened. Sixty six million years ago. Not Sixty five million. What's a million years among friends? Yeah yeah yeah absolutely so Joe. Yeah but the point is of course the impact and the dinosaurs demise lineup perfectly and for that nineteen ninety-two story. I talked to Carl Swisher at the Institute of Human Origins which at the time was in Berkeley Berkeley Berkeley Berkeley no even much larger when we went across the street to the UC. Berkeley and told Walter Alvarez the ages we're getting I think he was quite excited because he spent What the last Ten fifteen years trying to find a crater of each throughout the World Team Alvarez for the win absolutely yes for the most part. There's a lot of evidence but there will always be some skeptics in the scientific community. And you know it's also important maybe to mention that at the same time about the same time there was a whole lot of volcanic activity we also on the earth. So there's always people thinking one two punch. Maybe you're saying definitely came. But was it the absolute Khuda Gra for all these dinosaurs. That's still that's still debated. Yeah astroid touch volcanoes low bit of mix maybe so okay Richard Radium helped us figure out our dinosaur extinction mystery. You mentioned earlier that it could also help us potentially prevent the next global catastrophe. We're not talking another asteroid here. No we have Bruce Willis For Asteroids if you remember the action movie Armageddon No no no actually. We're talking about climate change climate change. How does a radium help? Well what we really need to do to. Combat climate change is to have clean fuel. That's cheaper than fossil fuels. If we could get such a thing in other words would quickly switch to the cheaper fuel and we'd stop dumping all that carbon dioxide said in the atmosphere. I don't know about quickly but sure. That's the dream. Richard Yeah Fair enough. So what's the link between clean fuels radium. Well we really liked to capture energy. She from sunlight and turn that into liquid fuels now. Plants figured this out long before the dinosaurs were even around. Tho- sent this says that's right and the first step in this process is to split a water molecule. And the problem is this is not so easy to do in the lab what chemist need is a catalyst so the chemicals that that speed up chemical reactions out there getting stuff done. You got it and I'm guessing you can see where I'm going with this. A radium is a good catalyst. It is a great catalyst for this purpose and imagine turning sunlight into hydrogen fuel or liquid fuel. You could put into an airplane. Of course there's one eighty problem with the scenario. Iridium you will recall. Aw is one of the rarest elements on Earth's crust because of his scarcity's one of the most expensive metals as well. So he does complicate our Laura Research so is the Mother Nature through that us. That's Guanghui Wing. He's a chemistry professor at Boston College. And he's trying to develop an iridium catalyst to make fuel out of sunlight and he's trying to get around this issue of how little of it. We have our ideas that we wanted to utilize this catheters to his maximum. That is we wanted Khimik every atom conce and since iridium is so rare he wants to make sure every single atom in a catalyst is actually at work speeding up reactions even so oh it's probably a stretch to think about building industry around iridium right so he and his colleagues are also hoping that once they understand how iridium does this magic they can find something else that will work as a catalyst as well or nearly as well and ideally something. That's abundant on the earth. So iridium or something like it could potentially help save the day. That's
What envoy's downfall tells us about UK-US relations
"We're looking at the crisis. In Anglo American relations following the resignation of Britain's ambassador to Washington Kim Derek who'd been denounced by the the American President Donald Trump as a pompous fool amongst other things joining me on the line from Washington D._C.. Is Our U._S.. National Editor Edward Loose and here in the studio is Jeff Dyer who was Washington correspondent for many years ed first of all. I was just reading an article which would say this is a low point in U._S. U._k.. Relations one of the lowest ready in the postwar period. We're in the midst of the events but do you think that sounds like a feathered. Yeah I mean I wouldn't put it on this guy that suicide nineteen fifty six and of course one or as Johnson comes prime minister seeming he does become prime minister will at least band sort of temporary revival of warm legs between from Britain's prime minister because he's a backer of jokes has been openly scathing Theresa May yes. It's unprecedented to have a president chase a British ambassador out of town like this. It's caused the shots here and I think the fact that the rest of Washington other than the president and some of the henchman around and is shocked you know as everybody else shows there is probably still quite a deep underlying strength of a bias there and we'll to feeding towards Britain yeah just give us a sense of that that unto recap for those who haven't followed. The story what happened was that succumbs diplomatic cables private diplomatic cables were leaked. They said some fanny unflattering things about the trump administration but then the president went ballistic when you say there is <hes> shock in Washington. There is a census there the president trump has overstepped him up because he oversteps all day doesn't he he does I think most people in Washington have been entertained the British residence many times that a web because they see who else is there at the parties and receptions and so forth but the the trump administration senior officials including jared Ivanka John Bolton during the station's defending off at enforce as well and that the idea that for that can dr is some kind of each state anti-trump A._M.. He's not being a neutral diplomat is seen as complete nonsense and have been sort of multi by most people in Washington so I think there's a great deal of sympathy bath. They know that Matt Trump many times when trump tweets out but he's never have a matching that that's false. I think they feel it's a different scale when it's done to a close allies when trump is knifing domestic plan. There's there's a sort of level of embarrassed but in a way quite reassuring well just but of course it comes at a time mm-hmm of great uncertainty British politics and some might think that the Khuda grass for Kim Derek came when in a leadership debate Boris Johnson who's likely to be the next prime minister quite noticeably refused to back him exactly I think rather than a crisis anglo-american relationship this demonstrates that just had diminished politics in both of our countries are at the moment I mean the overwhelming impression of this is the crushing smallness of Donald Trump as president. Here's the man who's the most powerful politician in the world old and chargers powerful military in the world these unable to see his office except through the prism of personal slights and through his bruised ego the revelations in these leaked cables was Kim dire talking about the insecurity of the trump administration and there's no greater demonstration. Demonstration that insecurity in the way the president this week but also British poltics comes out of this episode look incredibly small and diminished and Boris Johnson's behavioral that debate was the biggest example of that where by not defending the British ambassador who did nothing other than what his job is supposed to do. He has let himself and let the country be pushed around be bullied and have its foreign policy shaped by another country striking example of just how or strengthen brexit ears think this is about standing up for Britain taking control how the force of events events is actually giving his ever less control over what is trying to do and in a sense. This is not an isolated incident. It's particularly shocking because it's the United States but in past year and a bit you've had the Russians murdering people on the streets of Britain. You've had the Chinese he's telling the British to get back in their box Hong Kong and over hallway. You have very poor relations with the E._U.. Because of Brexit it does feel as if somehow the rest of the world is sensing that now's the time you can push Britain around that is the impression that ah that's a a very bad situation for post brexit. The new governor Boris Johnson if he does manage to leave the Tober thirty-first as first thing he wants to do is to revive the anglo-american relationship provide the special relationship of the call it and push for a very strong free trade deal between the U._K.. And the U._S. but the dynamic we've seen here is that actually the use is quite happy. President trump is quite happy to slap burden around. He has no particular attachment to any of these old relationships these old alliances and Britain enters. There's into these negotiations and a very very weak position where it's desperate to have a free trade deal with America and we have a very protectionist America first president who's very keen to drive the hardest possible bargain they can and to squeeze and is that that's exactly what you expect will occur if when these much-vaunted trade talks start gather Liam Fox the Brits Trade Secretary was actually in Washington this week yes and came you know decided not to accompany already Ma'am this invited to a steak dinner for the America. Her and getting accompanied them folks to see if I could trump the president's daughter this new columnist or even I'm serious. I'm not that I know who thinks that a trade deal between the U._K.. And the U._S. is a practical aspect of the next couple of years the the MOMS that the trump administration would happen the these are being fairly well fleshed out already would just be politically unpalatable any British prime minister whoever that may be would be unsuitable to the British and that is even presupposing it could to get through Congress. If there's no deal brexit on October thirty first and Democrats kind of representatives would lock any trade deal that resulted from it on the grounds that it would wreck the Irish Good Friday Agreement and you've got a lot of prominent Irish Americans in Congress Shooting Ritchie Neil Chairman of the ways and Means Committee which is the key one for trade deal who said if Good Friday goes up there will be no trade deal so the prospects by medically and economically for U._S. U._K.. tracheal of very very snip and just reverting briefly to this question of the behavior of ambassadors. It's quite striking isn't that actually a lot of Mr. Trump's ambassadors have been much more openly in violation of normal diplomatic norms than Kim dark it was the ambassador in in Germany has more or less openly quartered far-right forces in Europe. Yeah I mean that's the great irony of this woody Johnson in London Rick Grenell Gordon Something Brussels. These people have been agitating against the host governments with the one great exception. If David Cone Beam in Hungary it was blatantly over the pro or back Kim different actually breach any rules these lose that were breached with to leak confidential classified cables to the Daily Mail what he said in those cables with pretty mild in comparison to what American ambassadors didn't cables whatever the well about their government when the wikileaks Chelsea Manning dump my cut several years ago so Kim down actually. Actually hasn't broken any rules or even at anything particularly strong in confidence as you say. There's a great irony and Jeff. I mean presumably we can take on trust the idea that it's going to be slow going on a U._S. U._K.. Trade deal but Boris Johnson and will seek to align himself much more closely with trump administration what areas might he do that in China's and obvious one the trump administration is trying to push much more aggressive posture against China particularly technology so that's one in particular area but I mean ultimately if bortles not become prime minister will all come down to the first few months and whether he can get some sort of breaks deal everything is going to be focused around these first few weeks or months and the brexit negotiations. I think a lot of stuff will be secondary and so the question Asian is can he somehow go to Brussels and come back with some sort of compromise not withdrawal agreement but maybe in the political declaration that attached to the Dole agreement that he can sell as a compromise from Brussels and push a deal through parliament so so while he will make some gestures and some areas I think towards the U._S.. Really everything will be dominated around the the brexit deal and how he tries to push through parliament and ED. I mean this pops to begin to wind up in striking isn't it however the trump administration in some senses has made itself player in the brexit talks trump's stream of abusive tweets included criticism of Theresa May for not delivering Brexit ignoring trump's advice on how to handle the negotiations and one gets the sense is that the trump administration would see quite relish kind of violent rupture between the U._k. and the E._U.. I think that's absolutely right. It's not just trump you see e you as a geopolitical rival as before is John Bolton John Bolton Overseas Germany is the e U and he's being very openly scathing about Germany so it's across the trump administration might compare sectors stay gave a really sort of markedly anti e._U.. Speech in Brussels late last year. There is an undisguised as to see the E._U.. break-up fail for many reasons both and has his own reasons to do with week international organizations and spend much on defense trump thinks that this sort of towel to rip the Pulse America in terms of trade and of course all kinds of people around him who are strong ideological supporters of the likes of Dick to Obam Montana Salvini and Nigel for <hes> so I think this is over time into the trump administration hates the E._U.. And last point than you mentioned Nigel Garage Alec Task Both of you were speculating but it will now as as matter a great deal who Britain appoints as the next ambassador to Washington will it be a standard issue diplomat or will Boris Johnson insist on putting in a political appointee who can suck up to the trump administration more effectively. Somebody like Nigel Ferraz de think it's possible that figure like for our Gopher Jeff I mean publicly Boris Johnson campaign have ruled out some unlike garage but you can can imagine them having conversations amongst themselves whereby the Conservative Party actually faces a very very strong threat from the brakes of Party ferocious party which is essentially a one man band all revolves around the personality and character of Nigel Farage as you can imagine some of his advisers may be tossing around the idea of what we sent him to Washington that actually just spikes the bricks at party that really leaves the way open for Boris Johnson government to dominate the right of British politics but having said that if you weren't actually that he would really because so much ill will among civil service amongst the bureaucracy amongst other people in the Conservative Party. He'll be seemed to be selling out in such a way to more far-right position that I don't think even he would go that far ED. What's your view and I think that's probably right Farraj of course for the same reason I would be to send for charities from my statistical getting rid of her rival point of view Farraj will be dumb to accept it but Farraj loves being in this town? He loves frequenting the trump international. He loves himself.

The blue devils did in fact escape UCF seeking its first sweet succeed instead Zion. Williamson it's RJ Baird. It's camp rightish coach K and with with that call from Brandon doubted on the Westwood One radio Network, My heart rate, still spikes the end of that game was stressful. But this is why we love it. All right moving forward into the Sweet Sixteen we are pleased to welcome from draft kings, Ataman Khuda who is an analyst and is looking Sweet Sixteen with a different way that we are of course, because we're just mooring old fans who are guessing what happens now, Adam thanks so much for joining us. Now that we've gotten the field trim to sixteen what stands out to you about the teams that remain. So yeah, I think that as a kind of getting through the team, obviously, everyone loves the the Cinderella story. The oils Kaga dagger from years back. But to me what stands out with fourteen of the top sixteen teams remaining in the tournament. You're can get a lot of great games over the next four days starting Thursday, obviously through the weekend. You got your heavyweight title hopefuls, obviously. But you got a bunch of great matchup leaper all the spreads right now are under eight points or so so I think Thursday Friday, you're gonna give you some great matches. And if you go into a regional final weekend, Duke, Michigan state, Virginia, Tennessee type matchups UNC Kentucky. Doc in Michigan of the that you're really looking for a powerhouse weekend. I think you could see upsets near as well not too many of these spreads that they mentioned were to ours. And I think you could see the teams like the Houston weak- Oregon off those upset because we kind of go through the next year. The ornaments does it really affect betting and how much people participate in March madness. If it's teams that they know names that they know blue bloods, absolutely. I think that obviously there's that interest air with John Moran. Restate were to happen to know win that game against Florida state, and they were going up against gives. Sure, you'll have those people that are betting for the infants wants to root for a guy like John Moran. But when you got the dukes, and you've got the Kentucky Michigan state, and you got all these teams are there. People like betting against those people betting with those with John Williamson it again. And I think that they're even like Virginia with a very polarizing teams a lot of people think they're extremely boring. I happen to be one of those one of those people that work. But it's very successful. And again, they're going to be a wo- scoring game against a team like Oregon, which hold their opponents over the last month or soda under fifty five points, a game seems Virginia. So there's plenty of bet that are gonna be made each way there. A team like Virginia can kinda pull that out. But with plenty of big named programs. A lot of those extra eyes are going to be on those big name teams to make that next step and get to the final four. I love that. You mentioned the the polarizing effect that the big name schools. Have is I frequently point that out. Familiarity, breeds contempt. And so whether you love a team, you may maybe part of their fan base like the blue devils have an extensive fan base UNC does as well. But there's the opposite. Which is you literally show up just to root against them. And seems to be the case that you're talking about when it comes to betting to. Yeah. Absolutely. It's the case anywhere. I think you know, from everywhere for my six year old son who picked Duke bracket and was very upset for most of the second half. He was elated come the final game. And I'm sitting there on the couch is someone that he'll be doing X to root against you trying to weigh both those options, right? I think that your teams and people have their routing preferences in their interest. I think people are gonna bet against teams. Michigan National, obviously notoriety, but you know, people like the uptempo offense is Texas tax pros that they're going to have on that team with some of those UNC an Auburn. I think that game's gonna be tracking Bruce Pearl already set bet the over, you know, when the head coach these comes out and says that like that'll be interesting points research, again, I think the more is on the the better for obviously the MTA, and obviously the fans that are out there in route for and against these teams. Traff. King's College hoops analyst adamant Khuda with us here after hours on CBS sports radio. There are obviously names and schools that people are familiar with. But as you see the teams that survived the Sweet Sixteen who's one maybe sleeper school that you think could make some noise now as we go into the second weekend. Yeah. I think that one of the two that really stick out to me in the first ones Oregon Gluck they came into this twenty one of the hottest team in the country. They were a five hundred widow about five hundred team midway through the season and got really hot. Obviously, you know, get a lot of damage. In the Pac twelve this year. They blew out Wisconsin, which was a five c they blew out you Irvine which at upset Kansas state. They as I mentioned earlier kind of play the same tempo is Virginia. They had a couple of pros on this team. I think they match up well with Virginia. It wouldn't shock me. If he pulled off the upset on Virginia, we Gardner Webb did in the first after Virginia, and we also know Virginia's tournament history, if you don't my alma mater, Syracuse them out about eight minutes left. They were down huge games came back and won that game. We all know what happened last year. So Oregon the team that I think is gonna make some noise here. I'm hopefully or potentially fan you didn't even regional final the other team that really jumps out of me the team that not a lot of people know about Houston. The reason I say that they're thirty three and three on the season. They are just being a strong team. They'll probably have the best player on the floor gets Kentucky with David. The other thing to mention Houston this way, Peter west shot with Taliban Samson, you know, Alabama and Arkansas both Becker their coaches over. Over the last few days. There's rumors out there stance gonna head to one of those schools, potentially. So this is the last shot Kentucky's most likely going to be without one of their best players. I think the Houston off that upset too. And a lot of people aren't talking about that. Because of how impressive can puppy was, obviously, I guess Abilene Christian how shut down the Wofford shooters around too. So that's another one dependent look at their that Kentucky, then they're probably facing an Auburn or you obviously over UNC a winner to get to the final four. It's interesting that you mentioned pro prospects because I think this time of the year. March madness is the perfect event for people who literally no nothing about the sport. It's almost a Super Bowl of college basketball in everybody can get involved, even when they don't have any name recognition whatsoever. So you have is nine Williamson you talked about John rant. What other names out there? Do you feel like people can connect with? Yeah. Absolutely. And it's really funny when you kind of working NBA really to plug for them. They do a really great job about, you know, stacking up where the guys are going to go win the lottery and things like that. When you look at it. I was going to see those things Barrett. Williamson Moran using hundred from a couple of other names that kind of pop out up their yard Cobra, Texas, Texas sophomore, a very solid program. Excellent coaching crispier. He he's going down eleven Landau. Obviously the team to win the lottery kinda chic up obviously after the lottery is pick. But he's like that. But the guy that's gonna jump out to you. And a lot of the people out there really hot Shimura who's a big guy. He can play us in June come out early between Hitler random Clark. Those two guys up front. Frigging Zog are truly special. Why I think they're gonna make the final four was an incredible steady heard on grand in cork, the big I forget, I think he has more blocked shots. This season been missed field goals from the field. When you think about that he has well over one hundred blocks miss under a hundred shop, I think he's thirty plus in their game last the last weekend against Baylor shooting about seventy percent from the field. Those two guys are really, you know, household names that you can see in your kind of off the board here especially hundred Moro's projected in top four or five right now by many experts, Dr King's College hoops, analysts Ataman Khuda getting a set for the Sweet Sixteen steps off on Thursday and Friday, it's after hours and. CBS sports radio. It's obviously the first round of March madness I NCAA tournament in which sports betting has been legal outside of Las Vegas and a variety of states. How is that affecting the landscape now with? Half dozen states now where you can you can place legal sports bets. But with more states waiting in the wings almost watching to see what happens. Yeah. I mean, I think it's amazing and obviously draft teams and getting involved there. You know, they've done nationwide. Contest for the first time ever really went watching brackets nationwide to all the players on their apps and their sites. You know, they've done this nationwide. Contest sixty four thousand dollars for free entry. He's done the first ever cash bracket in New Jersey with up to a hundred thousand dollars in terms of cash prizes and obviously contests throughout the higher tournament. You know, you can sign up with your friends and play for free rein rights and things like that. And obviously throughout the tournament certainly go to the hub for marksman. Do you think that, you know, just kind of gets more regulated around the country is only going to provide more outlets for people to safely and with a trustworthy brand like a trap kings and go out there and make the best get involved in more attention to the games were in the past. You know, if your brackets kind of blown up and you have nowhere else to go. You know, Jackie's an amazing re re friends of get a new bracket going, and obviously, you know, play the games in the last couple of rounds with format. And have you seen the impact with draft king specifically? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, the the usage on on the app is outrageous. I mean, I have friends in groups that have constantly, you know, signed up for new brackets and hard this year with the brackets being imploded because as I mentioned earlier fourteen of the fifteen pop season tournament are still alive. So you went chocolate a lot of your picks. Like, you're probably still involved in your office ball. But at the same time, you want to get more involved in this constantly more emails coming out more people trying to promote on kings, and obviously throughout the the, you know, the internet and things further ways to kind of get involved with your friends. I have groups of friends that are constantly sending up to do another week. And I think this is leading nationally nationally. Impact in the numbers nationally. And I think you're going to grow from here. You can follow atom on Twitter at a man Khuda A M A N K U T A draft. King's College hoops analyst, giving us a whole different perspective on this March madness landscape. Great so much are great. Sorry. Great to talk to you for a couple of minutes. Thank you so much. You got it. Of course, have a great one enjoy the rest of the tournament. I mean, even when I'm talking about college basketball. I still say dumb stuff because it is the show. I so we survived. I got his name. Right. That's all good. And I think it is interesting to recognize the impact and to see grow the more states. Legalize sports betting the more. You're going to have people involved because it's convenient. And let's be honest. What do we love in the United States of America? We love easy access. We love all access. We love convenience. We love to have the ability to do whatever we want whenever we want on our device. On our phones. And so to have the ability to open up an app and place. A bet just makes it at at our fingertips. And so we don't have to jump through hoops to get there. You can find us on Twitter after our CBS. That's not my Twitter. If you want to send your questions for asking me, anything don't send them to my Twitter because I might veto them. If I see them I get veto power. Just you need to keep them away from me, if they're especially scintillating, of course, Chris return for asking me anything, and we were joking about that..

"khuda" Discussed on Data Engineering Podcast
"The kind of like, I use case attached to that is slowly changing dimensions. So those are kind of like the least quick updates. I would say so they come in, you know, daily or even monthly and you know, alternately wrote it requires that we update some data in h s and there's a bunch of tricks on how or S three HDFS three is your Bob storage, whatever it is much tricks to handle those, but those tricks lead to complexity and that complexity. Inhibits the number of users that can actually use the platform. And so that was really kind of you know, one of the motivating factors for coup. And then another one is that you have all these IOT use cases or not like uses where data starting to become starting to come in as a a slow trickle or a stream of data as opposed to you know, in micro batches or even large batches in dealing with that kind of data. Ultimately, if you stick it in Ezra Serie or bomb storage, you have to compact that kind of data if you trickle it in in those compaction jobs are again, like just really boring to write first of all and result in complexity that limits, the use case limits availability of the platform until like, those two use cases, I think are really motivating factors for the platform. I'll jump in. Just kind of reinforced that kinda original reason why I got involved the project, and why my company at the time state farm was was very interested. In Khuda was was for that reason alone is the the level of complexity that are ingested any tail locations had grown too was just unmanageable. You know? We were having a hard time for one getting, you know, our existing data and ETL resources to to convert over to the skill set for one because the applications were complex, but it was just a huge shift. But then just the amount of development hours, we were spending trying to to make all these complex architectures work. When when something like who completely eliminates that problem, and you mentioned the Dubica system few times in the fact that KU was built to finish that the other components weren't quite able to achieve at least in a single tool. So I'm wondering if you can talk a bit more about how it fits into the Dubica system overall and some of. The other technologies that it's more commonly used with. Yeah. Absolutely. So ultimately coup is a storage system within the within the general do ecosystem in. So I mean that pretty broadly. There's a whole bunch of different components that are you know in the quote to do ecosystem in quote in. This is a storage system. So take columnist storage system that complements HDFS so on top of HDFS or S three or durable storage..

"With my partner, and my brother, great Khuda were talking about financial circumstances when you divorced, and how this very important issues you have to consider their lot of divorced people out there. And that's why we thought this would be an important information to bring to you. Long term care insurance is something you've got to consider also. And I, and that's that's a great point because as a married couple, you can kind of pool assets and coverage others cost a little bit. But now that you're single you're on your own, and you had a loving spouse who you probably figured would take care of you to some extent in your later years because what happens when you start getting ill. Well, there's usually eighty percent of the time someone in the family steps up to be the caregiver, right? And they're the number one, and they have most of the burden on their hands. And maybe the brothers and sisters help out to give her money or were spell her her him or her and give her a break every once in a while. And then it just becomes too much for that person to handle, and then they get into maybe assisted living or then you end up last few moments of your life into the nursing home. So those nursing home are drained quickly as you in your experience have seen. Yes. Yes. And where it's important. I don't want folks to think of this as insurance to pay for your long term care facility or your care. What I want you to think about it is as a way to protect the assets that you may want to leave in your estate. Yes, if you don't care about who gets your estate, then you don't have to worry about it. But if you want the kids to get something, then it's important that you have insurance those assets can drain very quickly. If you're gonna hear that a lot.

"Help heal your heart and the most important thing. I think is I get loads of Email. All saying listen to these podcasts twenty four seven, and it got me through in the hours after my staff, and I really think that's what we want to help you do. And we appreciate you telling us how these shows have affected your heart. So now, we're answering questions because you can text from anywhere. And here's the first one Khuda cardinal be a son of a visiting you. Yup. Animals in nature are used by living energy on the other side. I e pets who have vacated their first suit to let you know, mom. I'm okay, I had a dog the other day named Julie. And you'll see the center Amazon review of the book after death signs from pets afterlife and animals in heaven. That's a great book because we have the techniques. So you'll know how to ask signs to get your pit respond. And so far we've had everybody just raving about the fact that you can learn to connect to your pet, even if you can't communicate with you can connect with it animal communication animal connection is two different. Things. So when this person asked she said, you know, we don't have any cardinals around haven't seen any in a year and her dog was this precious, we'd interior and she said, Julie if you're alive, and well, would you give me a sign as a cardinal because that's my favorite burger in the next three days and lo and behold, she was walking down the steps in the middle of winter and their sat this big old red cardinal, and she said, she just stopped on the steps and gasp, and she said this stuff is real. I wanted it to be real. But wow. This this stuff is really real. And there's a cardinal and she said it made her smile and her heart just saying because for the first time since Julie's death was she was a precious wheaten terrier. She was able to sense does the other side was real listening and connected to her. So if you'd like to see this story is so my Amazon review, and you can see her whole story there. But yes cardinals are signs from the other side. We had a girl here named Christine and her dog Winnie always set cardinals at her windows looking at her and she knew it was winning. So in her book after death signs from pet afterlife and animals and having there's a whole section about cardinals and nature being a vehicle for pets who vacated their first suit to send you a sign on the other side. So very much for this question. I certainly appreciate all right now. We'll move onto the next one. Okay. Here's a question from Nello. And the question is what is. The reason for removing.
Did Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy deserve to get fired?
"Is not to say that Mike McCarthy didn't deserve to be a head. Coach is not to say that he did a terrible job because he did it. He's proven to be a good coach. And it may very well be that he deserves to be someplace else. I'm certainly not gonna sit up here and say that Mike McCarthy doesn't deserve to be a head coach in the league as long as Jason Garrett, and Marvin Lewis is still head coaches in the league, I'm not gonna do that. I'm not gonna do that. Especially Marvin Lewis. These Jason gave wanna play off game is more than I can say for Marvin Lewis hasn't wanna play off game sixteen years, Mike McCarthy's a Super Bowl champion. I think that ultimately the indictment against Mike McCarthy is very very simple, ladies and gentlemen. When you are coaching. Arguably the greatest talent we have ever seen at the quarterback position in NFL history. You gotta have more than one Super Bowl championship in more than one Super Bowl appearance to show for it. You have to have that Mike because he didn't have that. You can't have Arron Rogers questioning the play calling. You can't have him chagrined over the personnel. That surrounding him ask why that's the biggest defense that I have for Mike McCarthy. He he isn't the only one that needs to needed to go. I think I don't have any problem with Mark Murphy, the presidency yo for the Green Bay Packers going. I mean, you don't wanna had Ted Thompson up in there as a GM before you put. We assign them to consultants position. Brian Khuda Kint good a cancer. We don't know what he's capable of. He clearly wants to move into different direction and have his own guy. That's fair enough. But under Mike are under under a Murphy, you had a regime that did not respect ariza's enough. Didn't show him the courtesy and respect you deserve. You got rid of the quarterbacks. Coach alexan- pelt. You didn't even consult with Andrew with Rogers. How do you have a quarterback coach and not consult with Amer Rogers before letting him go? How do you do that? How do you do that? I remember one time I was told Aaron Rodgers walked into their office. They told him to get the hell out shut up. You play. We run organization. That's how this works really, really. I want to walk around here and act like you know, what Aaron Rodgers listen. He's not having a greatest year. Yeah. Absolutely. Right. He's not in that. Absolutely. Right. Eras is not having the greatest year. Nobody's gonna make that defense. He's not gonna make that defensible himself. He ain't blind. He could see understands, but we're talking about eras who will who will saunter who will cruise into the hall of fame first ballot without question. And gentlemen, Aaron Rodgers has twenty one touchdowns and just one interception on this season. And that's a down year for him. That's how lethal he is. That's how great he is. We are talking about a man with a career ninety eight and fifty five and one record. We are talking about a man, then it's completed sixty four point eight percent of his passes. First career. We are talking about a man that has done this at the frozen tundra lamb Lambeau Field for his career, and he is still passing over forty two thousand yards. We are talking about a man that's exceeded. What some would label top-five quarterback in NFL history who's passed over seventy thousand yards and Brett farve. And nobody would tell you that bradfo was better than that Rogers. That's how great Aaron Rodgers is. That's how great Aaron Rogers has been. And so guess what? If he's not feeling a coach, if he's not happy, or whatever the case may be you better pay attention.

We can get an opening we already have someone online. Let's talk to Frank in Annapolis. Frank. Talk to you, could you please say a few words that General Electric what is happening there. I mean the last time I looked at prices below seven dollars. That's where it is. And it was down today. Big upmarket. What happened is General Electric is basically borrowed too much money, and they made many giant investments at exactly the wrong time. Like when they bought Baker Hughes, the oil service company, so this has been going from as you and I both remember Frank is the preeminent industrial company in America. To one that slightly above junk bond status. The problem is too much debt. Two simple as that. And it's hard to work that what will happen here. What do you think the company will vote again, I think it's going to be a slow death because they do have serious assets. And they do make things that we need like, locomotives and jet engines things like that. But when you put it all together. The debt is pretty difficult to overcome. Okay. I heard also recently. I am this. I understood at the different was be cut to a penny. Exactly. Right. Famous shopping that that's an obvious sign of finger not going well for them. Do you own the stock? Yeah. Is it in your IRA? Is it in your IRA? No, no, okay. Frank show if you sold it, and I'm sure like everyone else you bought it at a much higher price. Yeah. All right. You could use the tax loss against any gains. You have. And if you don't have any gains you can use up to three thousand dollars of paper tax losses per year to reduce your gross income. So won't be a total wipeout. If you want to get out of the stock, you don't see any way of the company turning around. I'm not saying something magical can happen. But I Don I I wouldn't I wouldn't put a lot of confidence in and recommendation on General Electric right now, it's it's it's a it's a gamble right now. Well, thanks for the explanation.

"That that happens in Thailand to, but I don't have a special place in Thailand that I love as much as I do in Bali. Yeah, and I would say that for me, the reason that Thailand takes the cake over Bali. I like the food a little more. I like the beaches more and I've spent more time there. So that's. Again, you know, that plays into it and as go back to the vibe that I appreciate an enjoy it. Again, a little more everything is to me a little better is that backpacker vibe versus the more as we said, eat, pray, love through free e. EAP stick stuff saying or crew for listen, you can still backpack in Bali. I'm going to throw that out there on that. The reason the my like Bali more is because it's more artistic. It's more creative. I like the food scene, even though I will attest the Thai food is better and I like it more. But I liked the variety of food in Bali and I do like the beaches. I mean the beach. Some of the beaches in Thailand are the most beautiful beaches in the world. So I'm not gonna. Beaches are beach better, but I like the proximity to the beach to boot and everything that encapsulates Bali and I guess, yes, I'm a little more fruit fruit a little or not glam and TRAN, not showing it in a derogatory way. When I say leaper eleven for, I'm just trying to explain that. It's. Thailand seems a little grittier and a little more backpacker not that you can't backpacker through Bali and you certainly can. And you know it gets ski down in Khuda area, but as a whole, the experience we had there was this nice. A little bit more artistic a little bit more upscale vibe, and I prefer the kind of gritty, hey, let's go do this pretty much sums up our two personality, or you go, there you go. So so if you're more like trav- and you can only choose one go to talent, if you're more like me, choose Bali and let us neither one, we'll disappoint..

"So it would be properly documented what he says, and we still don't know. The tape, and apparently that's reversed in the sense that some people have a suggestion that the payment Donald Trump was. The one who was at the payments should be in cash, not check. I am also Rudy Giuliani. God bless Rudy Giuliani will inadvertently help America because he's such a bad lawyer. He waived privilege by talking about this conversation. So privileged conversation is now waved by the attorney representing Donald Trump, which means is probably admissible, and now we're all talking about it, and I would love to see what's on that tape and there you better believe there are more tapes. So this is so juicy Khuda thought that Michael Cohen and stormy Daniels could end up being the people who bring down Donald Trump is exactly what he deserved. There's this. Okay. When I read the Giuliani said that there's no suggestion of wrongdoing. We're talking about the president paying off a mistress. Okay. It reminded me of an article I read earlier this week, Washington Post article about evangelical support for Trump and how eat all these hard core. Really, you know, really observant Christians, how they reconcile supporting somebody who they admit, they completely admit, they accept the fact that he's a complete sinner. He does things that are terrible. He is immoral unethical holiday still support that. And so for me, when I read that, I'm like, this is usually bring him down, but we're, there's a poll that was taken like a week or ten days ago by Wall Street Journal. Eight percent of Republicans still favor Trump and his numbers are going up with Republicans. I wanna play audio right now of the pastor raging racist robber Jeff. Who was on Fox News..
