Guest Teacher Janel Dyan on How to Invest in Womens Leadership in Your Company
"Today. We'll be talking about why in these unprecedented times. Women in leadership are essential to your company. Short-term growth and long term survival gender and racial equality are certainly hot topics of conversation right now but there are some organizations that are ahead of the curve and like me have been focusing on the equality of women and women of color for years and these are my clients women in leadership women on the rise women entrepreneurs and women at the helm of fortune five hundred companies today such so what lincoln and ford motor company and helping them grow as leaders. What i do best over the past seven years. I've worked with females of all colors and varied backgrounds from the bay area to new york. They are not only having a huge impact today but they are paving the way for all future female leaders industries historically dominated by men. And here's what i see. The companies who have made it a part of their core tenants to support an invest in diversity programs for the leadership development of women are the companies who are now today's industry leaders and it's not only for the products and services they provide but more importantly as a brand that people want to work for by from remained loyal to the shifted their measurable for success to include strong corporate culture of innovation employed growth customer loyalty and diverse leadership team who focus on purpose. And not just on the bottom line. They understand that their greatest assets are their employees and they have dedicated their efforts to be a brand that is people focused and purpose driven during our time together. Today we will focus on three lessons. You can walk away with first because women are. Today's largest and fastest growing global consumer companies need to shift their brand strategy to recognize the powerful role that women in leadership play driving economic growth. Next we'll take a look at why the greatest leaders are master storytellers and how powerful story can be and finally will cover some tips for building a culture with equality in its foundation including ways to establish promote an invest in fema leadership. So let's get started less than one. Women are the fastest growing global consumer and it's imperative that companies adjust according to. Brigitte brennan author. Why she buys and winning her business. Women make or heavily influence. Seventy to eighty percent of all purchases across all industries which means women are every company's largest target customer to truly capitalize on this customer trend companies. Must do a better job creating products and services with female buyers in mind. Companies must create a brand that women will buy from advocate foreign remain loyal to the companies who are most equipped to connect with women are led by other women and their leadership results have a positive impact. On company performance. The profits higher margins add more returns for investors leaders such as saffir cats of oracle and mary barra of general motors. it seems like commonsense. But it's actually not common practice. Facts are that only. Eighteen percent of global firms are led by women and according to this year's forbes annual report the number of women. Ceo's running fortune five hundred companies since it just seven point four percent so clearly. There are strong logical ethical and financial reasons to put more women at the helm according to study by mackenzie if we can close the gender gap by twenty twenty five twenty. Eight trillion dollars would be added to the global economy and to put that in perspective that is the size of the economies of the united states in china combined. Right now during covid and racial injustices at the forefront we find ourselves in a global economy with the future unknown. These challenges are now calling for new leadership no longer one of command and control but one of collaboration community one of the biggest actions that any leader can do right now is be transparent and empathetic to their team members and customers because anxiety and uncertainty are heightened during this time of crisis emotional connection on a basic human level between the leader and employee has never been more important than right now a recent study done in two thousand nineteen by mit sought to determine the makeup of the most effective leadership teams and those are the teams with the most women especially women of color as they are leaders who bring a deeper understanding of resilience. Women are also more likely to have empathy for those struggling to deal with change or lack of inclusion become role models for the change that they seek and are willing to share inspirational stories to motivate to embrace change they are in general more inclusive and collaborative making in leadership style which is a combination that continues to prove to be effective in getting companies to move faster in times of change lesson to the power of story. Why greatest leaders are master storytellers. We all love stories. In fact stories are what differentiates us as human beings. It is highly forged connections among each other and they'll trust as a community each stories an emotional journey that reinforces shared beliefs values and vision that we can all relate to from drawings on the walls of cave with stories of heroism folktales. That are full of more lessons to generational family tales. That remind us of our roots. Human beings need to feel that we are part of something greater than ourselves stories. Reminders that through tough times we will come out to the other side stronger wiser and more unified than ever stories. Bring us back to the beginning and remind us of who we are and what we do in stories creek clarity in our purpose and vision to get their. The greatest leaders are master storytellers. Simon sinek author of the power of y in infinite game says beautifully leaders aren't responsible for the results. Leaders are responsible for the people who are responsible for the results. It is during these times of crisis that provide an excellent opportunity for leaders to communicate stories of incredible vision for the future showing empathy advising with humility and providing optimism. For what lies ahead. They also understand marketing at its core is simply about storytelling. and it is the stories. They choose to tell that can differentiate brand as an industry leader communicating the values of the brand with the product and services they sell. I mean who wasn't choked up watching google's tearjerking super bowl ad of a love story that began with a simple question how not to forget. So tying back to what we learn in less than one about women being the largest and fastest growing global consumer with the understanding that stories have power companies must give their products and services a story that women now can relate to and what better way to do that than with women at the helm leading the way finally lesson three building corporate culture with gender equality in its foundation companies with strong female leadership such as new york stock exchange. Pwg and google are continuing to create more equitable inclusive and fulfilling workplaces for all women and the investments are already proving to return tenfold to their bottom line.

Even Cooperative Chess is Hard
"Hi i'm josh. Brunner master student at mit right now. Science so my research is primarily about the algorithm and complexity of puzzles and games for example. I think we're talking about here. Why proved the peace based harnessed of retro chests. A form chess puzzle and obviously we'll i think we'll spend most of our time talking about chess but just more broadly. Can you comment on games. In general everyone has a sense of what it is but maybe not. An appreciation for the mathematical definitions. What's a game to you. There's many forms of it like there's simple abstract games that are like them or like graph games like geography that well known studied in computer science. And there's also your traditional board games you might play settlers catanha's one law people know and chess of courses are so well known game go and there's also card games and all of these you actually think about the complexity of like how hard it is to determine whether you can win from a given position or like what moves her legal position and what about chess in particular makes it interesting. I in chess has chosen part. Because it's a canonical well-known game and i've been playing since i was little and enjoy the game a lot. The rules are nice and simple elegant. Which makes it easy to think about. And the peace movements. There's just enough kinds of peace movements to for pretty complicated puzzles positions. Like it's known that chess is exponential time complete. So you can't solve. Who wins a chess game in less than exponential time and that to my understanding we have that firm separation that is definitely worse than polynomial so knowing the chances. Xp time seems rather hopeless or my looking at the situation with two dire of ice. That means that yes. We probably won't ever be able to fully solve chess. This is different from those things like chess engines and such like. We're really doing here. Showing the absolute worst case is that you cannot make an algorithm that runs reasonably efficiently. Show for any chest position whether or not you could win but you can certainly give very good heuristic and that doesn't prevent you from solving like reasonable cases. It might only be the case that bad hard cases are actually that long so asking these broad questions about can. This player wind from this position have obvious value to the game of chess and a chess player might like to have oracle. It could answer a question like that but it's not the only interesting question a what are some of the other things one might wanna know about a game of chess or a particular board configuration so natural question that we ask the paper whether you can reach a position. Legally this is a common type of chess puzzle known as retro chess puzzle. Or you get some crazy position you say. Could this dish ever be legally reached and these puzzles will involve some nonsense with cast lying or entente or like. You'll have to do this. really deep. calculation figurative to king could legally not moved for the entire duration of the game so far or might be like a bishop that's in an impossible location and can only have got their via parotid pawn and these are quite interesting as to sort of hobby to solve them. But i think our papers the first time and looked at them from a academic standpoint. There are some things in there. I don't know if you've used the word annoyance but that ability to capture upon and converted to another piece certainly opens up a lot of passive exploration. Let's say a simpler game like i couldn't capture pawn and convert that to the bishop as you describe. It might be easier to say. Oh obviously it could never have arrived at this position. But for that one weird case that you were describing and that one weird case that we might not even seen a lot of chess games if you wanna have a complete algorithm it certainly has to capture it and that's one that is sort of like a point of discontinuity to me right. As soon as that piece has changed. The rules have changed but the experience of the game changes quite a bit. Are there any special things you need to do. To account for the dynamics of that game or you really just looking more at simulating broad sets of possible games for our paper we looked at. We didn't need any of those weird rules actually while they're interesting for creating puzzles did like humans like solve in of complexity all we need is the basic movement pieces. We never care about promoting on passat or casting. Actually don't even use kings in the entire proof that kings are just like left at home when we say we don't need the kings to prove us

Algorithms for vaccine distribution have a weakness: the people behind them
"To deal with the massive logistical problem of distributing covid nineteen vaccines the federal government and some states are turning to private companies to create algorithms for prioritizing shipments. Some hospital systems like george washington in dc and stanford in palo alto also created their own software systems to prioritize which healthcare workers. Get vaccines i. In stanford's case we now know that process went wrong prioritizing doctors and administrators mostly working remotely residents working directly with patients every day. And we wondered is vaccine problem algorithms are meant to solve or are officials leading algorithms. Take the blame for built. In inequality karen how has reported on this for the mit technology. Review i would say that the stanford them not in fact that complex and there's actually been an argument within the hour them's research community about whether or not if we could even call it an algorithm because essentially it was just a set of rules that were codified into numbers and for many of the hospitals that i got in touch with after this story broke at stanford they used just a more simple rule set they usually just consider one factor which is the actual department of the staff what stanford was trying to do. Not just factor in one thing. They were trying to factor in. I guess. Three things age department and prevalence of exposure but the issue is. They didn't do it in a way that was craft. And so they're really kind of two lessons that we can learn from the stanford case the first is that the way that the distribution allocation was decided There were no residents at the decision making table. And then the second thing we can learn is once. The algorithm was rolled out. There was no mechanism for people to provide feedback so on top of lake. Having this thing that was somewhat flawed audit. They didn't really test it. They disorder like here. You go now shots. Exactly the issue is that they didn't have people who are impacted by this algorithm at the decision making table and they didn't have ways to then quickly itera an update the over them once they realized it was flawed is vaccine allocation of problem that algorithms are meant to solve or will it becomes something that you know leaders might get to hide behind when inequities inevitably happen. A lot of times. People believe that when an algorithm is involved it somehow is this other entity that is completely detached from human decision. Making and the algorithm is suddenly unbiased even though it was programmed by people and what i sort of try to hammer home to people when i talk about this is algorithm. The decision making is human decision making and so some of the language that stanford's leadership started using after this happened was the algorithm was really complicated. It was the algorithms fall is a misnomer. it's just. It doesn't really acknowledge the fact that they were the ones literally. Codifying these priorities into code. Karen how is a reporter for the mit technology review and now for some related links. Venturebeat has a nice piece about the federal vaccine distribution process. And how it's been contracted out to one of the trump administration's favorite private companies. The data mining company here which has other federal contracts under its belt of course pollen tear and the us department of health and human services have created a software platform that prioritizes shipments of the vaccines various states and then tracks the rollout and the vaccination process. Now look this is like obviously how you would do something this big in the computer age but since it's ultimately taxpayer money funding this process. It seems like it should be easy enough to tell us all what exact data goes into making these decisions. You know these big public health decision. It's but we don't know it sounds pretty cool on defense. Dot gov how they describe this tiberius platform using a big database of non personally identifiable information tiberius. Run some numbers every week. Determine which states should get vaccines ship it out. Lickety-split defense dot com even notes that quote tiberius can provide zip code by zip code view of priority populations including frontline workers nursing home residents which is always how computers are supposed to work like magic with pristine data. That's regularly updated in fully comprehensive except that not every zip code gets counted or track very well especially in four or black and brown neighborhoods or on reservations or places where lots of frontline workers might live and where covid nineteen is killing. More people also possibly health departments all over. The country are totally underfunded and reporting data with fax machines. If at all and again we actually don't know much about what. Data is being used to make these determinations at the federal level. But what we do know is it's not going great and lots of states are saying they're getting less vaccine and they expected to get an inequality is already showing up and people are frustrated and skeptical and it just seems like the best thing everyone can do is again be as transparent as possible about how it all works and i'm trying to start off. Twenty twenty one hopeful. So hey maybe if we keep talking about it. It'll happen

Applications and Impact of CRISPR/CAS9 in Bioprocessing
"Today. I'm joined by fanling. Wong director of cell line development and protein sciences and zane starkey wolf director of corporate development from wishy biologics. I'm excited to be speaking with both of you. Today about crisper cast nine technology and its possibilities in the discovery and development biopharmaceuticals. We will also conduct a deep dive on its potential impact on bioprocessing and bio manufacturing. Welcome fanling and zane to the podcast. Zinke randy glad to be here. Thank you brandy before we get too far and because of our audience is quite diverse with regards to their experiences in life sciences. Fenland could you please provide some background on. Crisper cast nine as molecular biology. Gene editing tool. Yeah sure so christmas. Nineteen action system is actually adapted from a natural procure arctic defense mechanism to bacteria to simplify. What could spec assistant can do is took leave the face she and i was. It has been incorporated into the bacteria routine on so that to keep the fate from reproducing. Crisper is actually akron stands for clusters servers regularly interspace. Shot had a dramatic repeats and kissed by the most well well-researched variant of the class outcasts nucleus. Which has been used within the gene editing function. So i think the research community have actually adapted this mechanism to revolutionize how we perform the genetic modifications Not only in pro arctic. But or so. You can arctic sales since the system was first published and zane i know from our previous conversations that you were saying that crisper casts has an intriguing origin. Would you be able to elaborate. Yes interesting research can be found on crisper that dates back to the late. Eighty s Other work has been conducted throughout the first decade of the two thousand however it wasn't until two thousand twelve that two pivotal research papers were published in the journal. Science one by jennifer down nov uc berkeley and manual shopping chair of the university of vienna and then another pianist by doctors cross unanimous and sickness at vilnius university. All demonstrating the use of bacterial. Crisper cast nine as simple programmable. Gene editing jewel. But i know that the story doesn't stop there does it no. It certainly does not in less than a year in two thousand thirteen. The labs of dr fung jong and will chong of the burden student. Mit dr george. Church's lab at harvard reported success in adapting. Crisper cast nine for genome editing in your area cells and both mouse and human cells. And i know that we could really spend an entire podcast. Just on the history of crisper so i wanted to stay focused on the technology here. There's been a lot of excitement since discovery about this molecular biology tool. Can you explain why. Sure the remarkable functionality of this tool is that it allows scientists to target specific locations within the genetic code of an organism to cut out or replace a segment of dna due to the high specificity and exactness of utility. The applications have far reaching potential. And it has already become a much to walks game changer. In many fields of life science because it enables efficient cost effective and precision gene. Editing that has a wide utility for development of biological therapeutics including so and gene therapy disease modeling diagnostics agriculture industrial biology and more. And this has me thinking just about alternatives to crisper casts altogether Are there other ways to edit genomes. And if so what makes a crisper cast so much better. Great question brandy many of the other gene editing systems utilize today such as zinc finger. Nicholas's talons the use of mega nick. Liaises or other by all vectors like a. Iv compared with christopher cast nine are in the end very complex and time intensive often requiring many more steps and thus are more costly as well also and this may be greatest benefit. Is that crisper chess. Nine as a low off target affects profile which again makes it an ideal gene. Editing tool justify along with that. I've read many Recent advances using crisper technologies. Could you elaborate a little bit on those. The advances are extensive and continuous. We speak one example includes crisper a crisper i which are techniques to up and down regulate gene expression using dead cast nine dead cast nine removed the nucleus capability of cast nine but still allows for the targeted binding to a double stranded. Dna sequence of interest using the highway. Specific guide are a that is one of the cornerstones of crisper genome editing. I'd like to add that another application. It's a using crisper for hamas directed repel or so called a the are so this technique in simple terms can repel a double stranded. Dna break which is very important for genus ability. But what does the crisper made. Sdr can do is that. It cannot only to repel a break. But or so crew. Eight the break and then replace it with a small mutation or as elijah sequences so this techniques have actually substantially opened ability or researchers to make gino added more quickly and more efficiently
"When it comes to computers the actual hardware and software only account for part of the full story. Now don't get me wrong here. Hardware is a really interesting and important. Part of what i cover. The same thing goes for software. As i always say harbor is actually pretty useless without some kind of code to run on it. But you can't fully explain the history of computing with just blinking lights and stacks of code. That would turn to a pretty dry story pretty quickly. You need to also look the messy part. That's the human element and for me. This is problems usually crop up. You see there's a certain kind of person that's drawn to computers enthusiasts programmers engineers and researchers all seem to have at least somewhat similar motivations. Why do they work with computers. Well computers are just neat by us. Solve problems is fun and finding inventive solutions is rewarding in itself. And how this kind of drive is really great for the discipline at large. It can also make researching the development of technologies. A little bit annoying. Why did can thomas. And dennis ritchie developed a unix. Why did text based adventure game start to show up all over the place sure. They're really good technical reasons but partly it was just for the fun of the project. Once mass produced computers introduced more people into the fold these kinds of traits and motivations they kind of become omnipresent at least to appoint those working on large shared mainframes quickly turned from teams of researchers into groups of friends and once networking starts to link of computers. These groups of friends form into a larger community. So we start to see a large group of people with shared ideals practices beliefs and a common cause at their core. Now that sounds an awful lot like a culture. This is usually called hacker culture and like any other culture. It has its own folklore. Welcome back to advocate of computing. I'm your host sean. Hannity and this is episode forty-six hacker folklore now. This is a project that i've actually had in the works for a while. So i'm especially excited to get to share it with you. All today's episode is going to be a little bit different from my normal fair. I'm not going to be talking a specific computer technology or even really a series of events. Instead we're taking a detour through some fun. And i think pretty funny territory. We're going to be looking at a section of the jargon file in the print edition. It's appendix a hacker folklore. Hopefully you'll excuse me but you're in for a bit of a long preamble here. I put together a mini episode on the jargon file way back in the archive mainly talking about the files origins and its history in short. It's a dictionary of terms used by the more computer savvy folk. The file began in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy s at mit artificial intelligence lab and it spread pretty quickly from their versions moved from coast to coast over the arpanet and nine hundred eighty three. The first print edition was published as the hacker's dictionary. This isn't really a dry treaties. On terms and technical language jar file is a lot closer to really humor. The files mixture of some pretty low brow jokes jabs at corporate employees and actually useful definitions for its creators. The jargon file was fun pastime with an actual purpose it captures a slightly filtered view of the culture around computers in the seventies eighties and the latest version. V four point four point seven up on cat be dot. Org was last updated in two thousand and three. Well it makes the jargon file so important is that it preserves something normally hard to come by. There's been endless. Amounts of ink spilled over big events in the history of computing figures. Like bill gates. Steve jobs have multiple biographies covering their life. Stories to that all the actual hardware and software lying around and it's actually somewhat easy to chronicle all the big events all these things are essentially preserved. So you don't really have to go hunting for that. One scrap of a note. The bill gates wrote in the mid eighties. Instead you can just go grab both the focuses on microsoft in that era when we get below that high level of visibility. We can run into some serious issues sourcing. Computer science as a field wasn't developed by a handful of people it took masses but those masses aren't usually chronicled in the same way as high profile figures. Most researchers donate their notebooks to university. Archives user group minutes were usually just thrown in the recycling bin and online forums and messages. Don't really start being relevant until much more recently. This means that trying to put together less well known stories can get kind of difficult and a lotta. The culture around these stories is either lost or really really difficult to find information on. That's where the jargon file sweeps into saved the day well at least somewhat. It gives a picture of the hacker subculture during a pretty wide span of time. I guess this may be a good time to actually address the terminology here. Hacker didn't originally mean some malicious actor that broke into computers although breaking and entering was sometimes part of it. The jar file has a few different definitions for the term. I think the most relevant here is quote a person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary r f c one three nine to the internet users. Glossary usefully amplifies this as a person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system

How to build a lasting brand with Kevin O'Leary
"Obviously because the dragons den and then shark tank your personal brand. How would you the human. Because you're talking obviously as you can imagine listening first minutes of this conversation. I've been spending the last eleven years building communications death star to do everything you just talked about. Because i basically believed that the internet was going to squeeze the middle everything was going to be direct to consumer whether or not so t e commerce and that the ability the storytelling run. The arbitrage distributions was actually the game. So i like those chess moves of how they played out to me. I'm curious because i'm sure a lot of people. Were watching your curious right now. What you yourself within social media have you in these nine months. 'cause i'm sure you've been busy helping mentor. I'm sure you are constantly on calls with entrepreneurs fifty plus businesses. But what about you and your own personal brand. Have you picked up a platform. Have you started us. Lincoln from a content standpoint. Have you downloaded tiktok. You the man you the shark you. Where do you sip personally right now with with social or content creation whether i party because he grabbed the phone and do it or whether you live a little bit of the game i play. I've iraq ironically cedar for the first time in seven months. Have somebody producing for you. The personal brand. What's the production around that anything you know. Gary you are the role model for guys like me. You got it right. You guessed it right. The middle did get squeezed out. No question and i really got involved in social by two. And a half years ago. I hired a team of producers editors and storytellers to work within my own production company. Larry productions and what i learned. This is the paramount. Maybe maybe i'll give you credit for this because certainly watching you. You cannot bullshit people. You can't lie to them. You have to be totally transparent whether that's good bad or ugly. You gotta tell the truth. That is what a personal brand is built. Talk the minute. It's almost like the analogy are used. I teach this stuff. Now here in boston i do. I used to do lectures in person. But now i do them. Virtually at harvard and mit and temple and notre dame and talk about this stuff primarily graduating course of business students and engineers about entrepreneurship. It's like dating. You know when you fall in love and you meet somebody. And you're just empowered by that magic moment and i draw this analogy all the time. You just so wonderful and everybody should fall in love with whoever it's going to be. But then as time passes things change and maybe a year or two later. You're thinking about cheating okay. And you do now. You have a decision to make after you've done that you tell the truth to your significant other or do keep it a secret. And here's why i bring it up for business you're going to get caught one hundred percent of the time when you cheat you're gonna get caught because you didn't tell the truth. Your significant significant other can never look at you the same again. You've lost fifty percent of the equity in that relationship forever. it may not break up. You may go on but it will never the same business. The first time you get your customers your constituencies your shareholders. You lose fifty percent of the equity forever to tell the truth and take the hit and the ownership and transparency and intent around the. I'm sorry the that's such. That's absolutely right everything out of your mouth comma. There's also the half pregnant. Sorry and there's the real sorry and i think corporations the standards in which people want from companies is completely completely impossible for most companies. They may be good at the environment but they're bad at wages they like companies are are a convoluted animal. Just like people and this thought that you don't understand how to say sorry when you're trying to fix something people would rather dance. Look over there a bird instead of owning it and to your point in that lack of apology creates more damage. sometimes than even the event itself. Yes that's exactly. And i tell all my ceo's now look do not lie to the customers. Don't lie to your employees. don't lie to me. don't lie to anybody your shareholders. Even take the pain. Take the hit. Admit the mistake you made and you will build a relationship with customers. What we're learning online is if you have a direct relationship with the customer and you're honest with them and you tell them. Hey the protestant to be delayed or sore. You got a bad product will replace. It will give your money back. Whatever it is that communication ends up being very very valuable over time. Those customers stay loyal. We've learned that one hundred fold in our companies now and now in across the portfolio where now at forty eight percent directive revenue to customer. That's magic gary. That's frigging magic that because that's one hundred percent gross margin business. One of the we run out of time. We're gonna move on. We really appreciate your time but one of the fun topics in the chess game of what you're talking about is channel conflict for the people that still rely on a lot of business from retail as retails watching them go around them and that is going to be interesting battles of the next decade in business. Let's talk about that next time. I thank you so much kevin by

Why Reddit is the unlikely to key to solving the mental health riddle
"For mit and harvard have long sought to find connection between language and mental health. So where better. Look than read it. Chang daily charge with these is an carson took a look at this topic so what exactly where researchers from mit and harvard looking at when going to read it. So you know there these researchers who have been interested in this idea that there is a link between language and mental health issues. And maybe we can do is detect issues by examining the language that people use so essentially what they did is applied machine learning algorithms to about eight hundred thousand Posts disease they detect any patterns about mental health during the beginning of the pandemic. It's a funny place. It's a funny concept to get your mind wrapped around because it's it's read it and you know it's sort of known as place for while. Am as it's known for a lot of random conversations so why why was Deemed an ideal place to look for these kinds of connections. There's a few reasons here for one. It's real time data about you know what's going on that's of concern in people's lives. The researchers were able to use it to go back into time Spar back is january in this case to get an idea of how things were progressing as the pandemic started and they were also able to look at specific sub reddit that are devoted specifically to like certain mental health issues. Whether it's depression or schizophrenia. And then also look at. It's that are more like general advice for topics like parenting your finances Is if there are any any other kind of broader trends. There were popping up along the way they made this point with me that for a lot of people read it is a place that they turn to for advice and support in community and whatnot and also it's something that for them could be relatively anonymous as they were gathering this data and it's no secret that anxiety levels in general has risen this year. Thanks to the coronavirus. Thanks to well everything. This dumpster fire for years. So what would exactly they find. That was surprising right so from one. They found over time that the language that was being used across different sub reddit including the general advice ones started to become more similar to particular sub reddit devoted to health anxiety and the folks that generally have been on the health anxiety. Separated are the ones who you know for. Example will really concerned about coronavirus is far back as january before. A lot of us were really. That concerned The also found that a lot of people were talking about. You know stress relating to substance use in alcoholics consumption and that was another trend that was kind of popping up not just in separate devoted specifically to topics like addiction or alcoholism in terms of these different sub. Reddit it's like. How did these researchers determine which wants to go to and which one's religion yet so part of part of that is kind of interesting because that this sort of ties into this decision that they had to make between using read it and doing something like using clinical survey data which in some ways the clinical survey data would be more valid. Because the folks taking those surveys would be people who were clinically diagnosed in chris with the read it. You don't know for sure that the people who are on that read it have a clinical diagnosis or should've with the with the specifics. Their their cases are but they went for very large sample size. And so they're thinking. Was that kind of balance things out. somewhat but yeah. That's an interesting concept idea that volume and just the the sheer numbers will override the concern that some folks are saying may not be legit or a relaxed sufficiently. How unusual is that approach that you know going for these law of numbers as as opposed to going for us more traditional Clinical research work. I think it depends a little bit sort of of Like a case by case basis for this group. This is a very early steppingstone. They're hoping that people are gonna use this research in pick up the baton and move forward and and for the purposes of what they wanted to do. They decided that read. It was gonna be the better fit. You know partly kinda like i mentioned there was the real time aspect if they hit us clinical survey data it would have been a lot more limited in scope because there would been questions the people would have had to answer That would not have just been like kind of a broad ranging overview of what people are living in their lives in the timeframe would have been shorter is as well. And so you know for this. They're they're pretty open about what they're possible. Research limitations were. But i think in general for them. They're hoping that this is something that's going to kind of peak interest for other researchers and Another folks we able to take this forward. Hey you there was a lot of data of asleep taken from Both that what what do you do with it. How do you take this information and use it to benefit mental health research so they relied on machine learning algorithms in. This is something. That kind of pops. Every step of the process you know. For example early on with redoing his finding posts that had language it was specifically related to the pandemic. So you know. Words like respirator. Virus lockdown all. That sort of thing they were also able to kind of view the data in different ways using algorithms so in one case They were kind of looking at all. The language used and placing it in these topic. Clusters and of removing the individual sub. Reddit is kind of a factor in how they clustered the topics so they were able to look like across the board at at things like Topics like loneliness or suicide doubled. Kind of in the time frame that they were looking at they also saw the emergence of a cluster on panic attacks allen so so partly this kind of helps than being able to look at the data in a lot of different ways in terms of that data that it's a lot that they've got just curious how or how they're tapping into the fellow this information. What are they doing with it too. I guess whether it be more proactive in terms of treatment or directed the direction of where mental health research goes. What what are they doing with. The data part of their broader hope is that this is gonna be information that will be useful to clinicians You know when you think about situation like global pandemic. This is something that is stressful for all of us. But they have this theory that for certain groups of people. they're even more vulnerable. You know stressors are exacerbating Some issues that people are already have in the best of times right in. So how do you identify those people who need the most help. Who are the most vulnerable in. Make sure that they're getting the resources that they need and partly. It's it's an awareness thing for for clinicians yet as a counter standard. Serve the idea that were this helps us recognize how severe a problem certain mental health issues are right that that this is a surreal lens into that that a traditional clinical trial wouldn't be able to give us right. Yeah i mean that that's basically the idea that maybe you could look at specific groups of people whether it's folks who are suffering from schizophrenia. Depression or you know etc etc and like. Hey the folks in this particular group seem to be having these specific issues. You know like heightened during the pandemic for example so these are people that we need to pay attention to these people that we need to to get help. So yeah that's the basic idea is sense. It's fascinating erin. Thanks for your time
Virtual eviction hearings can make horrible situations even worse
"Millions of americans remain unemployed in this pandemic and can't pay their rent so people are being evicted. All over the country eviction hearings have moved to zoom or webex or even the phone to limit the spread of covid nineteen in courtrooms but some tenants advocates say. The virtual hearings violate people's rights. There aren't procedures in place for people who don't have broadband access for example translators that would be required in court aren't required online. Eileen guo is a senior reporter on tech policy ethics and social issues at mit tech review. She's been reporting on this and she described a hearing she attended in jackson county missouri. I listened in on a hearing where the person was the victim to end being affected by phone. The lawyer for the landlord was appearing. I video and the judge was by video and her call and her hearing was interrupted three times because the call was dropped she was trying to present evidence so paper documents that no one could see and on the other hand the landlord and the judge where referring to documents that have been submitted in advance that she couldn't see the judge herself recognized that this was such an issue that when she was scheduling the hearing for another ten. That was calling in. She suggested that she appear in person. Because appearing virtually disadvantage her. It seems like it's confusing and also like this feels like it's not a good way to do work in some cases right like it's not always even a good way to do a meeting let alone and addiction like how did it come to this so in theory courts moving to video conferencing could have been a good thing it was meant to be a public health measure so the cares act allowed for courts to to think about whether or not they wanted to allow more actions and more court procedures to be virtual to prevent the spread of covid nineteen in these small courtrooms as well as in the hallways by it kind of goes against the spirit of the cdc eviction moratorium which was passed in early september which specifically was looking to prevent evictions because there are clear links between housing instability and covid nineteen right but what if anything did courts due to accommodate people who don't have reliable internet or have no internet access at all. It's not really clear what courts have done to to make this process more accessible and it's really a court by core and in some case judged by judge decision there have been courts that have said that they are making greater accommodations for people with disability. That are appearing that they are providing interpreters that if as a tenant that is appearing in these courts you have some issue you can email the court in advance and express these issues to them but all of that kind of assumes that there's the space lied access to technology which in a lot of cases just is not the case that was eileen grow a senior reporter at mit tech review many statewide eviction moratorium sephardi past and unless lawmakers extended the federal eviction. Moratorium is set to expire december. Thirty first
The History of the Internet
"To begin with we as a species. We've been trying to categorize an attain all the knowledge. We haven't to a database of sorts for a very long time right so for example in seventeen twenty. Eight ephraim champions globe maker publishes the cyclopes or a universal dictionary of arts and sciences. It is the earliest attempt to link by association all the articles in an encyclopedia or more generally all the components of human knowledge. He wrote in his preface quote this. We endeavored to attain by considering the several matters. E topics not only absolutely and independently as to what they are in themselves but also relatively or as they respect each other. So we've been thinking about like how to how to access knowledge how to obtain information and organize it in in a in a way so that more people can access it quicker classic enlightenment. Classic enlightenment am my right So in one thousand. Nine hundred belgian lawyers and bibliographer paul outlet and on revilla contain proposed a central repository for the world's knowledge organized by the universal decimal classification. It was called the mondays And it would eventually house. More than fifteen million index cards one hundred thousand files and millions of images and in nineteen thirty four outlet further advanced his vision for the radiated library in which people worldwide will place telephone calls to his quote mechanical collective brain. And we'll get back information as tv signals. So this was a theory. This is something that they thought could get off the ground then in nineteen thirty six h. g. wells first predicts what's called the world brain He wrote the whole human memory can be and probably short time. We'll be made accessible to every individual time is close at hand when any student in any part of the world will be able to sit with his projector in his own study at his or her convenience to examine any book. any document in an exact replica. Study accurate it's pretty accurate so the world brain was to be a central repository of the world's knowledge organized by complex taxonomy invented by wells. So clearly there has been a precedent for desiring this kind of thing. So the concept of data communication or transmitting data between two different places through an electromagnetic medium such as radio or an electric wire predates the introduction of the first computers right. Such communication systems were typically limited to point to point communication between two end devices. Like semaphore lines are telegraph systems and telex machines so these can be considered early precursors to this kind of communication and the telegraph in the late. Nineteenth century was the first fully digital communication system. So that's just cool trivia fact it been a deeply so up until about nineteen sixty computers were huge unwieldy and self contained. You could use them as a tool. But you couldn't necessarily make them talk to each other or transmit information across any distances using them but there were a bunch of people working towards making that happen so a man named christopher stray cheesy who became the oxford university is first professor of computation filed a patent application for time sharing in february of nineteen fifty nine in june that year. He gave a paper called time sharing enlarge fast computers at the unesco information processing conference in paris where he passed the concept onto to lick lighter of mit like lighter vice president at both derek and newman inc and they discuss a computer network in his january. Nineteen sixty paper called man computer symbiosis so a quote from that is a network of computers connected to one another by wideband communication lines which provide the functions of present day libraries together with anticipated advances in information storage. And retrieval and other symbiotic functions. So super like great reading. You know just like pull it up right. Now read it. Yeah take it to the beach. You know something really exciting. So paul baran then publishes reliable digital communications systems using unreliable network repeater nodes the first of a series of papers that proposed the designed for distributed networks using packet switching. And we'll talk about that for a second. Method used to this day to transmit information over the internet and then a little later. Donald davies the. Uk's national physical laboratory or n. P. l. independently developed the same idea. So there's a little bit of like linear here So while baron used the term message blocks for his units of communication davies. Use the term packets so i was like what the hell is packet. Switching so packet switching is essentially and i. I used the the metaphor of of charlie and the chocolate factory. Ok you know mike. Tv how said the tv you're broken up into little pieces gets reassembled on the other side. That's basically what packet switching is with. Data the pieces get sent over in smaller pieces because they can travel over greater distances being smaller and then they get reassembled on the other side so that's packet switching s perfect. I'm gonna get a lot of emails. Okay so. Jc are lick lighter so jc are lick lighter. He was known as either. Jc are like friends. Call them lick several shame. I guess it's shorter than say j. C. r. guess so or just like yourself jim anyway He became the director of the newly-established information processing techniques office. Or the ipo within the us. Defense department's advanced research projects agency or darpa. So then robert. Taylor becomes the director of the information processing techniques office. Pto in nineteen sixty six and he intended to realize lighters idea of an interconnected networking system so he proposes to his boss the arpanet so the advanced research projects agency net which is a network that would connect the different projects that arpaio was sponsoring so a way to like keep everything together and at the time each project has its own specialized terminal and unique set of user commands so in order to talk to each terminal you had to physically go to the computer terminal that only spoke to that individual one so he was like what if we just had one computer that connected to everything and that was arpanet basically bam bam so there were like great. I love this. So they awarded. Arba awarded the contract to build this network to bolt beranek and newman or bbn technologies. And they're involved in the early stages of the internet in a major way and so all mentioned them like a bunch of times so the first arpanet link was established between the university of california los angeles and the stanford research institute at twenty to thirty hours on october. Twenty ninth nineteen. Sixty-nine the first message was the word log in that's boring. I know it's super boring computer guys. I was necessary to jump. It wasn't the first text message. Merry christmas oh. I don't know maybe it was being at least that s something. Yeah or what. Does it come here. I need you. That's the one for the telephone log in. Yeah right fine. at least it's easy to remember. Yeah i message sent over. The internet is the message lock-in so sent over arpanet between the network node at ucla and a second one at sri. So leonard kline rock of ucla said at the ucla and they typed in the l. and asked sri by phone if they received it got the l. Came the voice reply. Ucla typed in the. Oh asked if they got it and received got the oh. ucla then typed in the g. And the darn system crashed boy the beginning on the second attempt. It worked fine so by the end of that year. Four host computers connected together in the initial arpanet so this was like the beginning of of the end. Basically
Confidence and Minimalism by Jennifer
"Confidence plus minimalism. Find the courage to chase your dreams. By jennifer of simply fiercely dot com. I'll be thirty five in a few months. And i'm unemployed and homeless. Last year. I gave up my full time job and my apartment to travel the world and when i returned to australia later this year. I have no intention of pursuing a career or permanent address instead. I plan to buy van. Do odd jobs and travel around australia. This is my dream. And i'm thrilled with my choice. For a few years ago. I would have struggled to admit this to anyone. Why busy goes against the status quo and my age. I should be buying a house getting promoted or having a baby or i should at least want to admitting that i don't at least for now is scary because i know a lot of people will judge me. I've being called indulgent privileged and irresponsible all at mit that i am privileged in the big scheme of the world. But i don't think there's anything indulgent about doing. What makes you happy. More people should try it and irresponsible will say you never know what goes on behind the scenes. I'll wager that. I'm more prepared for the future than many other people my age. But i digress. I'm sharing my dreams with you today. Because i now have the confidence to own who i am. Confidence or lack of it is what keeps so many people from chasing dreams is the missing link the final piece of the puzzle that we all need to finally take that leap and do what our hearts are urging us to do. And i found a giant dose of confidence minna. Surprising place my minimalist lifestyle. Consumerism is a mask every time you make a purchase. You're making a statement about who you are whether it's intentional or not. If you buy an expensive handbag you're telling the world that you're wealthy and successful. Have you buy a popular brand of yoga pants. You're telling the world that you're healthy and a yogi if you buy souvenirs overseas you're telling the world you're well traveled. Obviously the stay. Mini make is subjective. But you get the idea because of this. We often turn to shopping when we feel insecure. When i used to feel bad about my weight or my body i would always buy stilettos. Because a towering heels made me feel sexy or when. I didn't feel successful enough at work. I'd buy expensive just to show. I could afford it often. It wasn't even worried about what other people were thinking instead. I'll trying to prove something to myself. But really all i was doing was hiding. My purchases. were a mask that kept me from phasing my body issues and self doubt when. I embraced the minimalism. I no longer had a place to hide and had no choice but to face my insecurities head on which led to self acceptance and confidence. Decluttering is accepting who you really are if consumerism is a mask than decluttering is accepting who you really are. My downsized my life. I recall being really surprised by the powerful emotions. I felt when saying goodbye to my stuff. I spent hours agonizing over donating a single dress while the drama. Why was it so difficult to toss and move on because saying goodbye to my mini. Dresses meant acknowledging a. Don't go to nightclubs anymore. Selling my blender meant accepting is not this movie. Drinking green goddess. I wanted to be and donating my sewing machine. Mentos never going to design my own wardrobe much less. Finish the blouse. I've been working on for years. You get the picture when you let go of things. You're saying goodbye to the person you want to be an accepting who you really are. You also let go of a lot of negative feelings about yourself. I felt a lot of guilt and shame. Because i wasn't living up to the lifestyle. My stuff was promising. My own worn party. Dresses would taunt me from my closet. When i stayed home on saturday night and my sewing machine while she was nasty so when i said goodbye it was liberating. I started to see all the good things about myself instead of focusing on my perceived failures another big check in the self-confidence box becoming a minimalist is a challenge. Finally becoming a minimalist gave me confidence. Because it's not easy on learning a lifetime of habits going against what is normal and saying goodbye to your stuff is a challenge and it takes strength. Commitment is an accomplishment like running a marathon or writing a novel in something to be proud of. When i look back on how far i've come where i remember my overflowing closet. I pairs of shoes and my maxed out credit cards. And then i look at my life and now i'm blown away a few years ago i never ever would have thought this was possible but here i am in the pride i feel that having come so far has given me a confidence boost like i never imagined becoming a minimalist is one of the most important things i've ever done and it has one hundred percent hands down enabled me to chase my dreams and build a life. I truly love if you're considering minimalism. I strongly encourage you to take the plunge and might just be the missing link. You need to start chasing your dreams.
Computer Crime Law Scrutinized at Supreme Court
"Finally today there was an interesting tech related case that was argued before the. Us supreme court yesterday it involves a nineteen eighty-six computer crime law that has been used ever since to prosecute hackers and internet activist than the like people have been arguing strenuously that the law is outdated and indeed as justice gorsuch said in yesterday's court hearing the us government's interpretation of the law risks quote making a federal criminal of us all and quote. And yes if you're wondering this is indeed the so called. Aaron swartz law quoting politico. The supreme court on monday indicated serious reservations about the ambiguity and scope of the nation's only major cybercrime law hinting. It may narrow the law's applicability to avoid criminalising acts such as checking social media at work during arguments in a case involving a georgia police officer convicted of violating the nineteen eighty-six computer fraud and abuse act by accessing a license plate database. The justices pushed a justice department. Lawyer to explain how a ruling in the government's favour wouldn't open the door to prosecutions of innocuous behavior those could include browsing instagram on computer or performing public-spirited security research to test a system for vulnerabilities as the first see. Faa challenge to reach the high court. The van buren case generated amicus briefs from a wide range of technology privacy and cyber security experts. Most of them on van buren side a group of cybersecurity. Experts described the faa a sword hanging over the head of researchers who probe computers for weaknesses with the goal of helping their owners fix the flaws. The most controversial ever see faa case never reached a verdict. In two thousand eleven federal prosecutors indicted the prominent internet freedom activists aaron sorts on hacking charges for downloading millions of journal articles using a subscription provided by mit swertz. Then twenty four face thirty five years in prison. He by suicide in january twenty thirteen while awaiting trial. The justices sounded alarm. Monday about the broader reading of the cfe. A justice neal gorsuch suggested that the van buren case was the latest example of the government. Trying to broaden the scope of criminal laws incontestable ways several justices expressed uncertainty about the definitions of key terms in the law such as authorization and they spent a significant amount of time asking both lawyers about the meaning of the word so in one part of the statute quote. What is this statute talking about. When it speaks of information in the computer justice samuel alito asked finding in at one point. All information that somebody obtains on the web is in the computer in a sense. I have a feeling. That's not what congress was thinking about when adopted this law. I don't really understand the potential scope of the statute without having an idea about exactly what all those terms mean li added. The justices also sought more clarity about the consequences. That fisher argued would result from abroad. Reading of the faa alina. Ask fisher to explain how the would criminalize one of his example scenarios. Wait on dating website. Fisher responded that by receiving interested messages from potential romantic partners based on falsified. Wait the user would be obtaining information from a computer in violation of the websites terms of service and also thus these cf a similarly fisher told justice elena kagan checking instagram at work constituted obtaining words and pictures from ones instagram feed and if a company prohibited social media browsing on computers obtaining that information would also violate the cf a bike contravening the employers policy and quote
The Brave New Worlds of Octavia Butler
"Hello and welcome to misinformation a trivia podcast for ladies and gents who love cool trivia and sticking it to anoint teams. Have pop quiz where your hosts. I'm lauren and i'm julia hate y'all lowered. Are you full of cheese. Still i am still full of cheese. I want to tell you that the were recording on the day that the cheese up came out and my husband came home and ate an entire block of gouda because apparently he was like that. She's episode really maybe hungry for cheese so we ate a lot of our cheese in our fridge. So did its job. Did what it was supposed to do that yet. We hope you guys enjoyed that. It was something a little different than normal but Somebody else mentioned that like they're not a big fan of cheese but they would love to do another dash along episode with its point. So we'll brainstorm. We'll come back to that. Yeah maybe we'll be eating. Maybe it'll be something else. You know who. That's interesting. Mike along with juliet tandem bike. Listen to me. We get a tandem bike and a couple of layers. Listen or and we bike around rochester and talk about the of bicycling and also talk about the history of rochester. How great with did you just come up with this disraeli. I literally just came up with this first of all key. Imagine what people would they. They saw on a tandem bicycle goalie. I attached to us. Like a yeti microphone at like yup. Yup and josh is right a lot riding alongside of us and then our in car bike so i didn't mean this bird. I'm like no it's fine. He's gonna drive next very slow with the with the cords running into the car. I love this so much. Okay that's our next thing called ride along with julian lawrence as they get hit by multiple cars because the worst almost ill-advised thing but you asked for it. Everybody so get ready. It's on your hands. Our blood is on your hands. Basically is what we're saying. Get ready for that man. Speaking of blood oh man. I am very worried now so for this. I decided that i was going to cover An author that. I'm not super familiar with a genre of literature but i'm also not super familiar with. I've really learned a lot. And i hope you all will too. I hope i will. Are you ready. Lauren i'm has ever i'll ever be this week. We're entering the brave. New world of octavia butler. Oh you know what i have. Been meeting to read some octavia butler. But i have now. I have not read in a very long time. And i feel like i don't know if i'm ready. You know. I do bet that you would like it. Okay probably a little more. So than i would i. I'm willing to give it all a try great love i think maybe a lot of people have heard her name but they're not totally familiar with her work. Or unless you are like a sci fi reader maybe maybe her name is like completely foreign to you. So here's what you should know. So i was a groundbreaking american writer. She was one of the few women of color publishing an agenda dominated by white men Butler won the coveted hugo award which is considered the premier award in science fiction as well as the nebula prize which are which is given to the best works of science fiction or fantasy in the. us She won those twice each and that was loud. She all the time she was also the first science fiction writer ever to receive the macarthur fellowship. Wow wow that's interesting. I didn't know that octavia butler was born in pasadena. California in june nineteen forty seven. The only child of her mother's name was also octavia octavia margaret guy who was a housemaid and loris james butler. Who was a shoe. Shine man So octavius father died when she was seven and to support the family. Her mother worked as a maid She was extremely shy. As a child in octavia found an outlet at the library reading fantasy books and also in writing She did have a mild form of dyslexia but she didn't let this challenge deter her from developing a love of books She started creating her own stories early on and she decided to make writing her. Life's work around. The age of ten octavia wrote reams of pages in her big pink notebook and at first she was enamored with fairy tales and also horror stories but she quartz came interested in science fiction magazines. Such as amazing stories and galaxy. Science fiction so octavia did do a lot of interviews later in life. And so i've gotten some really great information right from her own words that i'm going to ask throughout this so to an mit class on the media in transition in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight butler told this anecdote. It's impossible to begin to talk about myself. And the media without going back to how i wound up writing science fiction and that is by watching a terrible movie. Movie was called devil girl from mars. And i saw it when i was about twelve years old and it changed my life. It was one of those old nineteen fifties movies in which the beautiful martian woman arrives on earth to announce that all the martian men of died off in there are a bunch of men. Hungry women up there and the earth. Men don't want to go. As i was watching this film i had a series of revelations the i was cheese. I can write a better story than that. And then i thought gee anybody can read about our story than that. And my thought was the clincher. Somebody got paid for writing. Not awful story. Yeah so often. Writing and a year later i was busy. Submitting terrible fiction to innocent magazines.
Streamlining the Hiring Process for Nurses With Dr. Iman Abuzeid of Incredible Health
"The genesis of incredible health came from my background right. So i am an md a lot of friends and family members that are doctors as well who were often complaining about understaffing at the same time. My co founder. Who's a software engineer from. Mit import. lock. His sisters are nurses and they were saying. Hey i'm experienced and qualified and still takes me two three months to get my next job. I applied a ten fifteen places. I often don't hear back. This is a very common experience for nurses by the way even today and so we just figured there just has to be an easier way to solve this problem so essentially the problem you identified. Was this kind of the process. Right of hiring. Nurses was broken. Which doesn't make sense right because you would think you know with the shortage and hospitals needing nurses they would bring him on but hospitals are also big bureaucracies with lots of different challenges. So i guess it does make sense. You identified this problem. Which was the hiring the on boarding process and and all the bureaucracy involved. You decided to figure to streamline it and that was the genesis of incredible health. That's right and it's now expanded beyond just the place where a nurse finds the job. It's the place where he or. She manages their career. I mentioned continuing education earlier. We also have free salary estimators. We have a couple more services than are launching at the end of this year as well. That's exclusively for nurses. So it's it's really become the place where you manage your entire career on incredible health. Well i'm wondering him on. How does the business model work do. Hospital subscribe pay subscription fee to the site. Or do they pay you know. Every time they hire somebody you get a fee sort of kazakh model designed as a subscription and then that the hospitals are picking are selecting different. Tiers that are based on volume of one hundred percent free for the nurses when nurses go and work at hospitals. Do they tend to stay at the same hospital for a long time. Or is there high turnover. Are they moving around to different hospitals. Yeah so for our platform specifically we only do permanent workers right. We don't do any contract. Workers now look nursing in general is known for high turnover right so usually it's seventeen percent is a national annual turnover right now and so retention is also a hot topic and a very important topic for these for these employers as well and we'll try to do whatever they can to try to keep their nurses so let's go back to the beginning of this year. At what point. Did you realize that this pandemic is going to be a major problem and that the service you offer was was potentially going to be in high demand. I figured this out. Put this altogether. Probably in january february and now is because i was on twitter on and honestly the most amount of information was coming from epidemiologists. Md's and public health experts around the world because we weren't getting real time data here in the us so twitter twitter was actually the my source for figuring this out. I know you've got a team of about thirty people. You're based in san francisco right. We are headquartered in san francisco. Our team is in different parts of the country. So when you realize that this was potentially going to be a huge issue did you see an immediate spike in demand for your services. We did a certainly by april. There was a spike in demand for specific types of nurses. If you're an icu nurse. Or e deaners the hiring for that like increased by three x on our platform like right away and we saw a drop. For some of the other specialties because surgeries were getting canceled but since then since july august the demand for every single role has dramatically increased because not only are hospitals operating at full capacity also dealing with this pandemic. So how did you start to position your your company and your business to meet that demand so there were few things that we did We a few months ago. We launched what we call the pandemic hiring sweet right and what that is is a a range of features and tools that even more dramatically accelerates the hiring and really helps. The hospitals reduce costs because they had gone through some very severe financial hardship. Right so a couple of the things that we did was we added in automated interview scheduling remote interviewing. Because that's just what you have to do. During a pandemic in-app chats enhanced are matching algorithms. All of these with the goal of accelerating the hiring even further so we got down to twelve days now and on average we save every hospital that we work with at least two million dollars because they dramatic try to reduce their travelers costs as well as our overtime in asia. Our costs so essentially last year or the year before. If you were nurse using your platform you would have done and in-person interview at least one. You've traveled to the hospital. And that of course has gone away. That's gone so that's not even a feature anymore. Now everything is happening. Virtually correct and
Ultracold Soup: Meet The 'Superfluid' States Of Matter
"Or at quang. I am ready to go back to school with you. Which honestly dreer great. We would be good lab competitive. Yeah we will be competitive but we be great together. I think and so the science concepts. We're going to unpack. Today is states of matter. You know some of those other states of matter. You didn't learn about in science class rights so the physicist i called up to explain this is martin's veer line at mit. and what. i find hilarious. How martin is he said when it comes to his own kid. He actually prefers to keep this particular science lesson. Pretty simple to assam like. Oh yeah you the gas liquid solid bam. Leave it at that you know. He's seven and states of matter is really just a way to describe how a group of particles think atoms or molecules etc move which is sort of beautiful and collective and different from what you would gifts by looking just at a single particle and changes in temperature and pressure can cause those particles to move differently and change their behavior right. We see the super easily with water. That's right in the liquid phase water molecules slip and slide past each other but we humans quickly learned that if you lower the temperature the particles slowdown bam. We see is appear and we fridges. And we're very excited about. That actually was a huge deal hundred years ago to make ice and if we go in the opposite direction heat water. The particles move faster and farther apart and eventually the h. two o. Molecules breakaway and dissipate into the air as water vapor humidity. That's right it is already a miracle in itself. Water exists in these three different states that we can see those states at temperatures that we can reach as a humans in the kitchen. But here's the thing we can only do so much in our kitchen. Speak right speakers though there. But there's a limited range of temperature and pressure that even you can achieve in your kitchen mattie and there are states of matter beyond this okay like do you remember plasma who ya. Sometimes it's called the fourth state of matter and it can happen when matter gets heated to a super high temperature like electrons rips from atoms which actually allows plasma to conduct. Electricity super cool. Lightning is plasma. Plasma is wild. It is wild. Yeah and if we were to go in the other direction to an extreme if martin son were to ask dad what can happen at a temperature much cooler than ice. Is there something else. I might start telling him about these superfluid states of matter which is exactly what martin's studies at mit these superfluids states of matter that we're long predicted but not easily observed in nature. So how many states of matter are out there. Well we don't actually know martin want to even commit to a number. When i asked him this question he actually said ouch. The is apparently no end to the series of interesting new. Twist that nature gives us to to find your states of matter. We just are digging as we speak. We're digging into this all the time and that's because in theoretical physics. You can use math to predict things that experimental physicists haven't observed yet and i say yet because in the last few decades scientists have successfully coaxed atoms under extreme laboratory conditions to enter other states of matter states that could have useful applications for future technologies awesome. Okay let's get this. Emily like how do they do. This kind of lab can had to exist for these other states of matter to emerge. I'm so glad you asked. They had to get cold. Ultra cold we work in the neno. Kelvin regime for breakfast ano- kelvin. So you might ask what so. That's actually very called. It's a billion times cold interstellar
How to Create Organizational Culture Change Using Social Media
"Ladies and gentlemen here. She is sally poge. Who's the director of social media for the university of california. Davis coincidentally located in davis. California sally welcome to social pros. My absolute pleasure to be here with you. The university of california system is very very large. A little bit about davis and what kind of campus it is. What kind of school. What you specialize in give folks who aren't familiar with uc davis maybe west coasters. Gimme little a frame up on the institution absolutely well. I think the first thing that we want to focus on his where we are. We're in northern california so East of san francisco in our sister campus uc berkeley and actually uc. Davis is. I would say we're one of the last college towns in california so we're in a small town called davis and we really specialize in research around climate change. We have a hospital and the number one vet. Med hospital in the world actually is located at uc davis agriculture. How we feed our world how we care for our world and climate change are kind of our bailiwicks at uc davis so We have a very big very active student community. We have about forty. Five thousand undergrad students on campus. And then another twenty to thirty staff faculty and grad students So we serve a really large community. We're pretty we're known for being kind of a little. I would say little wonky we're close to sacramento the capital We're northern california's there were outspoken about our values Which leads to a lot of protests social justice discussions It's a very lively community or my best friend's daughters the recent graduate of davis and also the school One of his best known programs commercially is. Is your wine education program. Many many of the best known winemakers not only in the united states but actually in the world have gone through the davis wine program.

Algorithm spots 'Covid cough' inaudible to humans
"Mit scientists have published a paper. In the i tripoli journal of engineering and medicine and biology describing an algorithm they developed the can identify whether you have covid nineteen by the sound of your cough. That's true if you're asymmetric. In other words if i mean a coffee is a symptom. But you don't have the classic symptoms of covid nineteen because a cough could be a symptom of anything. Covid changes the sound you produce. Even when you're a symptomatic intesting. The algorithm was ninety eight point five percent accuracy on patients with a positive covid nineteen tests. So they were able to use coughing to detect ninety eight point five percent of people who were definitely positive with covid nineteen and a one hundred percent accurate for those with no other symptoms. The algorithm was trained on a data set of seventy thousand audio samples with multiple coughs. Twenty five hundred of which were from confirmed covid nineteen cases. So that's how the algorithm was able to go. Okay that's somebody who doesn't have it that somebody who does and figure out the patterns that it would listen for the site just hope to get regulatory approval to use it as a way to take quick noninvasive daily screenings and for pool testing to quickly detect outbreaks in groups pulled. Meaning like a group of people a test. A bunch of people once cambridge university carnegie mellon university. Uk health startup called novo. Eric are all working on similar projects.
