"Ingram still yeah, okay. He's had like he's got 15 Targets this year eventually something good is going to happen and he was six for 65 last week Evan engram. Not that bad. Would you start Dallas Goddard burning room? Got in PPR. It's scattered. Non-ppr. Do you still have faith in the Niners DST? Yeah, cuz then I guess turn over machine Jameis Jones. You hey love that one you hate that you're going to start making t-shirts. All right, Tennessee this at minutes soda the Vikings not you might be the most exciting person to talk about this game on the planet not to be overlooked. Anthony bar is out for the year. It's big deal for the bike as big. Yep. All right, Ryan Tannehill. Let's see Ryan Tannehill or Matthew Stafford. Tannehill Fernando may change Ryan Tannehill or Ben Roethlisberger. Oh, that's close. I'm sorry. You guys had them back-to-back so she can help ya. All right. So that's that's a toss-up there Derrick Henry start Dalvin cook start Adam thielen start. So let's talk about Corey Davis and John is Smith. Corey Davis is roster and seventy 1% of leagues. I mean you look at his numbers last week three catches 36 yards and a touchdown came on five targets. Well Tannehill through what twenty five passes 24th like that twenty-four. So yeah, I guess for winter. You always have to be concerned about how many passes he's going to throw but how do you feel about Corey Davis as we've talked about a lot of you know, took a wide receivers like the Golden Tate's and the DeSean Jackson's and whatnot. Where is Corey Davis in there? He's a good number three receiver. Yeah, I'd take lamb ahead of him. I take John Brown ahead of him, but I think that correct. Have a is toward the end of that Flex range at least in PPR non-ppr maybe a little bit closer to them. I start Davis over the game Saints and Packers guys. Assuming that. Oh, yeah. Minnesota's pass rush is not very good. I won't say it's non-existent. It's just not good and any tentacles making plays when the pass rush is right in his face. Just give him even more time to throw. He should be fantastic. So super efficiency is in his favor and I could certainly see the Titans throwing a couple of touchdowns. This game opened as a pick pick them and now it's two half and half for Tennessee. So I think Minnesota which the game even as bad as being they are they're not as bad of a team as they have shown and they're at home desperation time. I think they're going to end up winning the game cousins would have to a Lights Out game for to happen. Yeah. I don't often cook the Titans run defense has been pretty bad so far south. So obvious three running backs of scored a touchdown against the Titans 5.2 yards-per-carry to running back so it could be a big Dalvin cook game jonnu Smith is a started for you guys top 8 this week, you know Allie Cox of a hundred yards on six targets hundred eleven yards against Minnesota. So some of the names you guys are starting jonnu Smith over would be correct me if I'm wrong, but Evan engram page Jared Cook Hayden Hurst Dallas Cowboys Eagles. Both Eagles Titans Okay. Okay. So yeah, John is Smith go go with jonnu Smith. And that is it in this game vs. Diaz top 8 You can go with them. Last game is Detroit at Arizona. Status here just out of the game so far George Kittle four catches for 44 yards against Arizona Logan Thomas, nine targets only 26 yards on four catches. Holy cow cow. The Cardinals are so good against tight ends as nothing to do with Isaiah Simmons. I don't think he's barely played know are you buying that because TJ Hawkinson burst onto the scene in week one last year and exposed what would become a team that was among the worst in years and years and years against tight ends. Like how do you feel about Hawkinson going into this game against, Arizona? I don't hate them. He's a low-end starter at best. That's a good way to put it targets will come down with the holiday there and so is the Cardinals deep thought George Kittle got hurt in the game. So I don't know that's a fair representation of what the Cardinals are going to do her tight ends scaring her tennis through gotta be worth just said silly the Lions need to sit TJ hogenson know but yeah, I mean it was obviously focal point of their defense, you know to get in that area and so far the two games it's been the case Okay. So, is he a starter set Hawkinson? Hawkins something as good replacement option type of guys better than the Logan Thomas is Andrew samples of the world. I'd start him over Dalton Schultz, but I'm not going to start him over, you know even higbee if the bills guys play. Okay, Stafford is like borderline top twelve. Yeah, I hope Kenny golladay gets the full practice on Friday cuz that'll make a lot of people feel better about Stafford, but they're going to be a security and garbage time. This is what Matthew Stafford was last year. Hopefully will be the case again this year. I don't think there's there should not be much hesitation. If any if Rodgers doesn't have Davante Adams of freeze doesn't have Michael Thomas you can start Stafford if he's got golladay that and we haven't we haven't even spoken about Breeze if Michael Thomas play. So let me just throw that out there real quick if Michael Thomas does somehow play. Yeah, we would freeze rank. I guess I'd move up a little bit but he's so wouldn't be top twelve and I don't know how effective Michael Thomas would be if he truly has a high ankle sprain how well can he move right if Thomas played you start breathing? It's obviously case specific but you feel a lot more comfortable with it. We got some obvious starts in this game. Kyler Murray is number one for everybody this week Kenyan Drake, you're starting him and the exact options. You're starting him Kenny. Golladay. Is he an obvious start? I think so. Okay, you can worry about the rust factor and all that stuff, but the Cardinals cornerbacks are solid.
Germany takes hard-line position against Russia amid Navalny fallout
"With the you know what has been in the headlines recently, the the whole navalny tension Germany is clearly taking a harder line position on. Russia, and the first question is does this reflect a consensus in the region that Russia's a growing menace to Europe and then the second? Talk a little bit about the poisoning of Nevada and what kind of pressure Germany is under. We've heard some hard words from Angela Merkel and what would be the real pitfalls of moving forward without sending a clear message of protest. So if we can bundle all those into into kind of a general answer that would be great well, ever since the annexation of Crimea it is very hard to pretend that the previous policy on Russia which consisted and really trying to build a partnership through economic ties with corporation that this actually worked because the annexation of Crimea from from European. But also from your perspective, of course, was a violation of international law the forceful. Changing of orders as something that scene as absolutely illegitimate illegal and also undermining the European security order. And so Gemini has taken a pretty important role. Alongside, Franz in the so called Normandy format. which consisted in building a forum for dialogue with Russia Ukraine. Germany and France. Representatives to discuss how the violent conflict also in eastern Ukraine could be reduced on how Russia could hopefully pro-european perspective withdraw at some point. The other role that Germany constructively played I think is to help create a European consensus on sanctions. This was always over the past years a transatlantic consensus. This is very important to know because of course, if you if you want to sanction and this is a transatlantic approach, this is final impressive. Now with. The Nevada case the interesting question is why why this attempted murder of an opposition politician while they have been other cases before? And and my understanding his two things one this became a German and European issue because of the decision to bring Lebanon lead to Germany into have him treated here this created a huge political and public attention to the case and on the other hand additionally that was really. This feeling of this is just the last straw that that was needed to break camel's back. It was just now of. Russian suppression of opposition of burdens or attempted murders then the. The situation. In Ukraine the feel of a Russian support for the regime and Belarus and the possible violent crackdown on the demonstrations that are going on at the same time. So so suddenly, all this cumulated to a point where not only burden but in other capitals of Europe as well there's a very serious debate ongoing which is basically a review of the previous approach towards Russia and what can be done a which leverage can be used to bring about at least a certain change in Russia's policy. or at least to deter the activities like the ones I just mentioned. One thing is important to notice with all the Europeans, the debate that is a strong coercion on the European side, not to make the conflict that is happening within Belarus geopolitical between Europe and Russia. Because the concern of course is if the Russian narrative which is trying to build up this geopolitical narrative of European intervention and an attempt of Europeans to. Topple the regime and galleries if that was actually nudged the fears that Russia would would basically I'm hit back more forcefully. So it's a very I would say cautious discussion but a very realistic one as to the question what kind of actor we've facing here and there are no illusions whatsoever now about let's say the real face of the planet MIA Putin.

"Jackson Gallup DeSean Jackson, or do a running back here? Darryl Henderson Henderson, but Jackson's better than all the receivers not named Davante Adams or Michael Thomas and that Saints Packers game. Okay, I hope so cuz he didn't really do so great last week 6 or 6 depending on you know, Foul Play action deep ball type thing. He'll get a couple of opportunities deep and which tight end you prefer for the Eagles. Still Earth but it's both. Okay, both of them are worth starting this week. Look, I took a long look at it this week and just the Bengals more often than not they also Play Zone. And so there's plenty of open space for both tight ends to do. Well, especially with rigor out there's more targets available. Now, that's for sure that they need it but they're both top twelve and PPR Eagles DST tents for Jamie page for Dave 16th for Heath. So we'll mostly call them to sit. San Francisco is at the Giants and only good news for the Niners is looks like Jason Verrett is going to play quarterback. Akela Witherspoon. Apparently it really struggled in week two and they're already down Richard Sherman. So I think that's why you heard Dave and Jamie like Darius Slayton. They like Golden Tate. I think Slayton is a really good team tournament play. He's just hasn't been a big games and I actually think I'm going to do a fun Daniel Jones lineup. I was thinking about doing the same, you know the prob Actually, I started we're going to talk about it on HQ today. I started doing a Daniel Jones line up, but on FanDuel it's just so easy to have Superstars. Like I did a Daniel Jones light up and then I had like $3,000 left. I was like, okay. Yeah. I'm not not going to pass Kyler Murray up every day Jones, but he how you win. You gotta win with a guy like that. Yeah. That's what I'm going to do a separate Daniel Jones line up and it's much different in BFS versus your just regular seasonal Daniel Jones over calamari. That's no no. I just meant in general like he's not a start you can't but he does San Francisco don't know what to expect from them. They are a shell of themselves and you guys think the Giants are going to win and they have no running game. So there's opportunities their way in eight starts with Nick Mullens in 2018. George Kittle was on Pace for almost sixteen hundred yards Dante Pettis was on Pace for 848 yards and nine touchdowns so he can wage. Get you some numbers Nick Mullens. He wasn't that bad. It's also a DFS consideration. I mean, he's cheaper than Tyrod Taylor Drew lock and unlock. Who's the other her quarterback? I'm blanking on right now. There's Garoppolo I guess yeah. Oh, yeah that guy. Yeah, he's cheaper than all three of them 5100 on DraftKings wage. I remember Grappa hasn't been ruled out yet though. So keep that in mind. That's true. But I mean even Kyle Shanahan said it's looking like Mullins is going to play well part of it is because they don't want to put anybody on that surface. Yeah, do you trust George Kittle if he plays of course, you're not you're setting him. Do you I know we talked about earlier in the show, but just give me a recap I think of the 49ers running backs and how you feel about them and who gets the most carries and whatnot between Wilson and MacKinnon, I think mostly going to get the most carriers. I think he's the one that you look at non PPR, you know, he's going to have school help you across the board. But you know, I wouldn't be surprised if he's you know, fourteen fifteen carries for 60 some-odd yards. It won't be pretty but you know if he finds the end zone now is going to be okay. So like I started over Zack Moss, for example, if you're looking at it must place last I saw he was registered in eighty-six percent of leagues. I'm not sure if that number is significantly long since I last looked and it was Wendy Wilson or Thursday. Yeah. No, no stinking of McKinnon McKinnon's 96 Wilson's 20 know Wilson's available. I said roster did not react. Not not roster than 86% of League 76. I'm you know, I'm in this league with a bunch of guys in the industry where I'd McCaffrey and Berkeley and I'm I'm forced to start fussing and I'm kind of excited about it, you know his offensive Line's healthy Kyle Shanahan's a genius Giants defense isn't great and he's got fresh legs and he's a physical guy. He could score maybe a forty or fifty yards on top of it and he's out there. So if you need a running back go get them. Yeah. I I'm starting him in in a guillotine League because my running backs are so bad. And yes, I feel bad about hyping up the Giants defense run defense. They have given up now into games 47 rushing yards in the fourth quarter to Benny Snell and 50 rushing yards in the fourth quarter to David Montgomery. So it's just been weird. They've gotten off just dashed in the fourth. Perfect for Jeff Wilson under the assumption that Forty Niners were going to have the lead in the fourth quarter. I don't think they could they were but we just moved We both think the Giants are going to win the game could be a back and forth type game that wouldn't hurt Wilson. But if the Forty Niners by themselves down 10 points in the fourth quarter, then it's not going to be good for we'll just it's just so funny that you have a the Giants are at home. They're facing a team without their best defensive player there too. Best defensive players, maybe their three best defensive players. They're starting quarterback. They're starting running back there on the road for the 2nd Samuel and maybe George Kittle Ryan and they're still not expected to win the game, right? Yeah. That's man, but giving the spread. Sorry about that. Yeah, it's San Francisco's - for right now. They open - 6 and 1/2 one thing. I'm going to make them down because I think you know once you get Garoppolo and maybe kill ruled out one thing that looks a little high to me is the total in the Packers Saints game by the way, 52 and 1/2, right? That'll come down. I don't know it went off. It was started in 51 and 1/2 if Adam gets rolled out of the come down to be under wage. Sports Insight says that the Forty Niners are getting 57% of the bets which is spread. So with thread I take the Giants with the points. I would in a heartbeat. I will walk in a heartbeat. I have Jordan Reed if George candles out would you start Jordan Reed or Evan engram?.
Mexico Records The Highest Number Of Health Care Worker Deaths From COVID-19
"Taken a heavy toll on health care workers around the world. Amnesty International reports that Mexico has recorded the highest number of health care worker deaths from the Corona virus. 1400. NPR's carry con reports on how that country came to lead the world in this grim statistic. It's a regular scene in the courtyard of the sea Glowing, you know, medical complex in Mexico City. Dozens of the public hospital staff break into applause to encourage patients struggling with covert and honor. Those who died and there are many. Mexico now ranks fourth in the world and deaths from the virus and of the nearly 700,000 infected. One in seven has worked at a hospital or clinic. Like an angel Gutierrez, a pediatric nurse, the sick element, you know, hospital. He first felt covert symptoms back in July, I I felt really bad. My whole body heard I had a terrible headache. And then I infected my wife and two girls, he says. As his two weeks of paid sick leave was running out. He was tested a second time again Positive, but five days later, he was ordered back on the job. I guess we can still infect others at that point, says Gutierrez. But he says by then his symptoms weren't that bad. Two months later, though, he still have a cough. There are many reasons why so many health professionals in Mexico are getting sick and dying. Lack of quality protective equipment long work weeks that extend exposure to high viral loads, and Mexico quickly hired tens of thousands of professionals to boost staffing. Critics say they haven't gotten proper training. Sofia Ramirez of the nonprofit Mexicans against Corruption says in the early days of the pandemic, healthcare workers were dying at rates five times higher than in the US If we don't take care of her health personnel, I'm not sure how they're going to take care of Oliver. The numbers have improved somewhat in recent weeks. But health care workers still account for nearly 16% of all infections in the country. This month, Dr Theresa at the end, head of the Pan American Health organization made an urgent plea. Countries must ensure that have workers can do their job safely. Carlos Eduardo Perez Palma, a radiologist couldn't agree more He says he spends at least $1500 on protection equipment for himself. Goggles, masks face shield every three months. He works at two of the biggest public hospitals in Mexico City. Paris also leads a group of health care workers fighting for workplace protections. Thor, it is like to call us heroes. But in practice, they sure don't eat of the heroes. Mexican authorities insist their covert protocols are up to international standards, and they dispute that the country ranks first in the world for covert deaths among health care workers. In a briefing, the government's lead epidemiologist Jose Luis Alla, Mia, said it's unfair to make this claim because, he asserted Not all countries report deaths among medical staff and fed among men whose government eat five years. Salome is a data show healthcare workers actually don't get a sick or dyas frequently from Cove. It has the general population. But his data may be misleading because of Mexico's low rate of testing. Mexicans are generally tested on Lee after their hospitalized with serious symptoms, but healthcare workers are supposed to get tested as soon as they feel sick. Mexico's Health Ministry declined to respond to NPR's questions and interview requests. Doctor

"But the secondary's not good and so this home game their favorite home, you know you need a win to get your quarterback right got people talking about him with this hat backwards. Negative going around with Carson Wentz. This is the time to improve yourself and hopefully he does. or Wentz. wets wins, but it's close. So this is going be an interesting test because when has what nine games in a row with forty or more passes than ten games with thirty or nine, thirty, nine or more passes? and. It's not like the Bengals have a great secondary, but they've seen the third or fourth wide receiver targets. Because teams just run all over them. So I wonder if whence finally gonna a break that streak, this is more of like a twenty eight to thirty pass attempt kind of game 'cause miles sanders just going nuts. would be smart for the eagles to do that because then you're limiting the mistakes that Carson Wentz can make in the hits that he can take because that's been a problem for him. So you know, this is where fantasy and reality sort of split like you'd like to see have a great fantasy game. But the eagles need him just to play a good game period and so if he if he's more of a game manager that's probably better for their team. down. Right push comes to shove I'm sure that's what they'd rather have i. know that their identity is storing the football It's GONNA come down to how their defense does and by the way I'll take buoyed over AJ green are there any muster number-one receivers done against Philli so far the sorry about that Dave are there any must start wide receivers in this game Sean Jackson's pretty appealing and then of course, the bengals guys are more appealing the must starts. In the definition of the word now or phrase no but I mean again if you're getting AJ green how targets it's hard to overlook at some point start to be some production there. Yeah. I give give the eagles credits so far. They've been pretty good against wide Receivers Cup had a decent game but maclaurin Laura would score, but it was on a rush. Yeah. maclaurin sixty one yard Sims fifty yards. Robert Woods fourteen yards cup eighty-one. But I mean last year like number one receivers basically crushed areas or they crushed Detroit I don't know how much of that was on. Sleigh but. I'm not sure it's a match up your really shy away from and then to Sean. Jackson. Like Sean Jax Michael Gallup. Jackson. Jackson. Gallup the Sean Jackson or? do a running back here. Darrell hinder in. Henderson but dachshunds better than all the receivers not name devante Adams or Michael Thomas and that saints packers. Game. Okay I hope. So because he didn't really do so great last week. Sixty counting on. Play Action Deep Ball type thing. You'll get a couple of opportunities deep and which tight end do you prefer for the Eagles? Still. Okay. Both emmer are worth starting this week look I I took a long look at it this week and just the bengals more often than not they also play zone and so there's plenty of open space for both tight ends to do well. There's more targets available. Now, that's for sure that they need. They're both top twelve and P P R eagles. The tenth for Jamie Twentieth for Dave Sixteenth for Heath. So mostly call them a sit. San Francisco is at the giants and only good news for the niners is looks like Jason Verita is going to play cornerback Akilah Witherspoon apparently really struggled in week two and they're already down Richard Sherman. So I think that's why you heard Dave and Jamie liked area slowly in the light Golden Tate I think Slayton is a really good DFS tournament play. He's just hasn't been big games. And I actually think I'M GONNA. Do a fun Daniel. Jones lineup. I was thinking about doing the same. You know the problem I actually I started. We're GONNA talk about it on on HQ, today I started doing Daniel Jones lineup but with. Will. It's just so easy to have superstars I I. Did a Daniel Jones lineup and then hit like three thousand dollars left. I was like, okay I can. I'm not going to pass. Up. Data Jones but he's Got To win guy that's what I'm. GonNa. Do a separate Daniel Jones lineup and it's much different in in DFS versus you're just regular seasonal. Owns over Carla Marine. General like he's not a start, you can't but he just Hat San Francisco I don't know what to expect from them. They are a shell of themselves and you guys think the giants are going to win and they have no running game. So there's opportunities there. By the way in eight starts with Nick mullins in two thousand, eighteen, George kibble was on pace for almost sixteen hundred yards. Dante Pettis was on pace for eight, hundred, forty, eight yards and nine touchdowns. So he can get you some numbers Nick Mullins, he wasn't that bad. And also a DFS consideration. I mean, he's he's cheaper than tyrod Taylor drew lock and. Who's the other her quarterback I'm blanking on right now? There's Garoppolo I guess. That guy. He's cheaper than all three of them. He's fifty one hundred on draftkings while remember Garoppolo hasn't been ruled out yet though so That's true. But it I mean, even college Shanahan said it's looking like mullins is gonNA play part of it is because they don't want to put anybody on that surface. Yeah. Do you trust your kindle place? Of course you're not, you're not setting him..
How to work with your SDRs
"Morning everyone out there in the sales success community this is a David Weiss coming at you with a tip of the day. So this tip is about working with in how you treat your SDR. So for all your as out there. That are lucky enough to have. SDR's I have a handful that support me. I'll tell you right now. It's probably the hardest job in sales right now is booking new meanings. So I see a lot of folks and by the way outreach does a really really good job of this. But I do see and I do hear from other organizations that a don't necessarily respect the. That they may be talked down to them that they may be not in lean into them that they maybe don't spend lots of time with them and what I'll tell you is. It's just a it's huge miss since I've been at outreach, I would say my Sdr even though I am doing a healthy amount of prospecting are setting the vast majority of my meetings and I am having a little bit more luck with my str's than maybe some others and the reason for that is I really really take time to strategize with them I see in SDR. Relationship is it's me and them against an account and we are a team working together. So that means we pick target accounts together. That means we pick the contact strategy together. I contacts they find contacts we agree on who we agree on messaging we agree on when we assign each other tasks. So when I wanNA call task done on a suite person at I've followed up a few times, they'll reach out and call them while I'm GonNa meet it if they need my help coming over the top of an email that they sent or as a follow up almost like kind of in. A little bit of an executive sponsor type play from call that they made or conversation they had they assign Mia task and I come over the top on them. Now, all of these things are really done using are really easy to do using a a solution like outreach but if you don't have it, it just requires communication. So that's one thing. The other thing is you need to celebrate the hell out of them. For me. Anytime SDR books are meeting for me. I treated as if I just closed a big deal, literally the the announcement, the jumping up and down the high fives the thank yous depreciation, all of that every time they boca meeting for me. So when they book a meeting for me, I send to my boss I, sent a note to their boss I joined a teen, their team meeting in recognize those people and I'm recognizing quite a few people often. So I do those things and then guess what they want to work harder for me because I recognize them and I work with them and I truly do care about them potentially more than some others do and. SDR's are going to spend time where they loved just like we spend time where we got love I mean it's totally natural. The last thing is if you have the ability to run contest the ability to Gamma Phi or make their job fun, they have the hardest job in sales right now, if you have a way to help them, you know they make it fun. Do those things as just a pure ratio number for you what I've seen in the marketplace and from personal experience is that it's taking essentially two hundred calls to set one meeting. So just think about that every time SDR set a meeting for you. They made two hundred phone calls thinking about all the work impressed in rejection that went into that. That's what they're doing for you while you're doing other. Thanks. So folks appreciate the hell out of them. They deserve it. They're awesome. In, you will get more for it in you will have better relationships with them for a and we all win them.

"They are enough Dalton Schultz is not in your top twelve. So stash them, you don't have to start who are some tight ends you'd start over altern, Scholtz? Really, be one of. The Thomas would be one. Okay. I. Know I actually like Salts I. Can move them up. Yeah. I. Think about how I remember the stat the where during the off season where? Dak Prescott Leans on his tight end and there's always been like. Targets the tight end. The average is around like hundred and fifteen something like that. I don't remember it off the top of my head right now and last week we saw it nobly Jar Jarwan no big deal Dalton Schultz ten targets. Here you go. So in a in a high scoring game, I would certainly expect shoots to continue to see a steady flow of targets. He's just right guy right place right time great match up that's. Right right. It's just it's probably just a solid match. That's all Adam comes into play right. So I like I like him as a volume based top fifteen fantasy tied and Australia. What I said about starting read over this is this is where I think you look at. Gallup coming into play because if they stay away from Adams and maybe there's few more shots. To Gal who was going for guy in terms of targets but he made a good point on twitch last night like are they really going to put? Jamal Adams on Dalton Schultz when. These three as in the middle of the field, you've got these three wide receivers you gotta figure he's going to be fighting on. Covering don't play man. They don't really play man to man defense and Seattle, they're they're gonNA play this cover to cover three type of defense and try and keep all these receivers in front of them and just hit them when they after they make the catch so Schultz will be open frequently. He's just not going to get a lot of yards after the catch and when they get inside the five, for example, that's when you might see Seattle play more man coverage and that's where Jamal Adams Takeaway Dalton Schultz. About week one for Seattle who was the guy that was missing from the Atlanta passing attack. I. Yeah. I. I suppose. So all right Cincinnati Philadelphia. Already. Gave Stat of the game for this one about Philadelphia being so bad against tight ends touchdown a logan. Thomas Three Touchdown Tyler higby I'd only five targets so. I'm sorry drew sample Dalton Scholtz. Schultz so okay. Joe Borough always sixteenth for Jamie Sixteenth for heath twentieth for Dave the eagles were fine against Haskins. got of torn up by Jared Goff. The quarterback play was better than the numbers I. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. were. Interesting stuff there. Yeah. So borough I people probably it's hard to really trust him but over breeze right? It's.

"Green Bay is at New Orleans. Stay out of the game. Number one, I think is actually my only stay out of the game start of the game. These are the only two teams that have allowed just one sack so far this season, so that's cool. Hopefully black quarterbacks have a lot of time to throw and Drew Brees can you know throw the ball all the way five yards downfield will get you ten or account? All right. So look ordinarily walk Green Bay at New Orleans Primetime home game would be a prime-time home game. And I mean this you would hope would be a showcase game for these two incredible quarterbacks wage high scoring Bonanza. What do you think about this game? Is it going to be that way? Not if you don't have Michael Thomas and Davante Adams to start trust it, you know these defense they'll get the credit they deserve their very good defense has the pass rush is going to be tough on both of these quarterbacks. You believe that about Packers that they're they have a very good defense. Yes, they don't have a good run defense, but they have good defense every capacity fence. So yes, you know, I mean it's going to be look trequan Smith and and Emmanuel Sanders or the shell of a email Sanders at this point. And as you just alluded to it's going to be Alvin Kamara here tomorrow there Alvin Kamara hear Alvin Kamara there. Okay, we'll take you know, a 7-yard throw to Jared Cook and walk through the ball downfield. It's it's not going to be pretty for Drew Brees if Thomas isn't there against this team because those guys are going to put pressure on him. And you know, I don't I don't want to trust them even though he's usually great and he's box and then for Rogers, he was fantastic last year without Davante Adams and Aaron Jones played a bigger role. I would feel much more comfortable with him without adding because I've seen it in him play song. Fully plus he's just on fire right now. So I would downgrade Rogers if he doesn't have Adam's but I'd still feel okay starting him. It's like the Matt Ryan thing even though Matt Ryan's weapons without his top guy or better but that's a good defense for New Orleans. I know that you know, Derek Carr picked them apart, but they just couldn't covered Darren Waller the Packers don't have that type of player. How dare you talk about Robert tonyan. Well, look if you're still going to start Aaron Rodgers if Davante Adams doesn't play Then you gotta be pretty high on at least one of their wide receivers, right? Sure, I think their number three guys, you know, they're not a must dark play. Okay, it could be Lattimore on Lazard and that would be bad for Lazard but they move them around so much that maybe he could end up just getting decent volume and I still have trust issues with other scaling even if there is no device to Adams stretching. The field is great. But you gotta be able to hold onto the football. So we probably need to do a little bit more research on who else would play. It could be equanimeous St. Brown. He had a choice you can't he is on IR he couldn't be there. So who who would be the new receiver that would step in obviously envious and Lazard are going to be the two most you have to think they'd be the two most often you guys American you never know how to turn out. I'll give you example like what we did the Todd road. So I share the podcast league with like we were going to play Preston Williams last night and I said, oh let's just hold off cuz we haven't vs. You know, so here's a must-play, you know, you're looking at your team and saying, okay what what's on my roster and who can I, you know, maybe play play those guys over. But again, it's a good secondary. The receiver is last week did not For the Raiders, right? So I'm just saying, how is you know, how was Rogers a start? Okay, it still says no question. Not a must-start. He's not a monster like I mean again, you can see Tannehill being better than him and I would have no problem playing tennis over and I'll probably rank it that way because they're closed now Stafford, I would rank over Rogers as well. Okay, he doesn't have those guys. So it's not like a good Adam Slam Dunk play Aaron Rodgers, but I don't know if I'm running to my waiver wire to pick up Justin Herbert to play over Aaron Rodgers this point that's not the case. Even though her words got a good matchup himself. All right, so same Brown is on IR. You're right about that Malik Taylor. Is there only other receiver on the active roster right now. I'd have to go through and check their practice squad to see begelton Reggie begelton. You talked about Derek Shepherd, but is faster just focus other fantasy relevant guys, right? So I'm getting to my point. Maybe it is tonyan who ends up getting some work in the Packers obviously saw with the Raiders did and leaning heavily on a big kind of fast. Oh, he is fast Waller you go home. For you if Davante Adams does not play marcedes Lewis catches a touchdown cuz he's on the field a hundred percent of the snaps. All right fair enough. Okay. So let's say Adams and Thomas are both found out who's the best wide receiver in this game might be trade Quan Smith. Who would you take strike on Smith or Lazard around vs. It would either be Smith or I would go I think guard Lazard MBS Smith. Skip a few skip a lot Sanders, but it's going to be the running backs. I mean that's where there's those guys are going to go to. Okay. Yep. Start Aaron Jones start Saints have a great run defense. Whatever start Aaron Jones start off. He's going to destroy the Packers run defense can't really have any faith in latavius Murray after his no show in Vegas and then Jared Cook is topped off and like.
The stresses of parenting in 2020
"My name is Diana Lamont. Thanks so much for listening today. So I've been a little MIA. Around the podcast I have been around in social media but I thought that I would do at check in. Because I've unveiling things and I'm sure that you're all going through things So I just wanted to share a little bit about what I've been going through about what I've been thinking about as we. Inch closer to the twenty twenty election day because I feel like we've been an election season since November nine, th two, thousand sixteen. So today is August twenty, six, twenty, twenty, sixty, nine days away from the general election of the member third twenty twenty. I haven't been recording a lot as you can imagine. With covert and the children being at home after the initial rush I think of productivity. It was really hard to work fulltime from a husband to work full time and for us to manage. Know three meals, Jay taking care of toddler taking care of nine year olds making sure remote learning was happening. and all those things. So it's been quite challenging time. As I'm sure has been for many of you. So Yes. So here we are So I just wanted to share a little bit about kind of what What I've been going through my household and kind of the things that I've been working on. As some of you may or may not know I am an organizer I work as a freelance contractor for a few organizations and While ago I was working a lot on paid leave and BEF- after leave I decided to work on child care. So I've been focusing a lot on child childcare which has been on the news because of Cova did. A lot of childcare centers have closed in the United States. Mine included a my daughter's is a toddler and her daycare closed. They announced it back in May that they were not reopening again. So that was absolutely heartbreaking. Because we were very attached to our childcare center, you know it was a childcare center that my son had gone to. My son is now nine. So we known them for about seven years. So. Yeah. That was quite a shock and. It's not going to get better. Because a lot more centers mike close because there is no funding in those support for a lot of these centers that are small businesses in our communities so. So that happened. In June, we decided. that. We would come overseas so that our family would help us with our children so that we can continue working. Because working full-time. And taking care of three meals a day and taking care of learning. And keeping the children occupied. So we were doing it but. I think we were getting appoint where our mental health and physical were really. s- you know. being affected. And we were lucky enough that we had family. Who said you know we can help with the kids. So we came. So now I am actually France. Which is where my husband's family's from. And we've been here in July and originally we were supposed to fly back in September, but we actually have extended our trip. Another month. Again just because of childcare issues I mean. We can't work if both the kids are home the way we need to work and. We have were incredibly lucky that we have the support. So we decided to take it and. We've been working I have been working. A lot on child care which is ironic considering. My childcare has closed but actually know the issue very intimately. So It's really heartbreaking to know that there are so many people. That are going to have to close their businesses and so many people that are going to have to. you know find new childcare, which is really hard to do. If you're a parent, you know there's so much that goes into finding a childcare centre. As. A parent there. So many kind of boxes you have to check off right you have to make sure that the prices right. But also you have to make sure that the location is right that the hours you're right that the that you like the teachers that when you go in, you get this by where you feel that you are. Happy to leave your child air that your child is going to be taken care of, and they're happy when you go pick them up like there's just so much. to consider when you're finding a childcare provider. So Yes. So a lot of people are going through what I went through, which is you know their childhood unders closing a lot of people out of parents especially, MOMS, they're also. Deciding or being forced to quit their jobs because they don't have child care because they don't have flexibility. Because the the, there's just no other option, right so what we're seeing is that a lot of people mostly moms are going to end up leaving the workforce in my entourage. I've already seen I think to people that have said that they have resigned because of childcare which is also really heartbreaking. I, feel like this crisis going to set women back in women's rights and equality. Gender. Equity. Back a lot and that is a really scary thing.
Facebook Dialogue Platform with Stephen Roller
"Stephen Roller welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. You work on dialogue research at facebook dialogue research. I. Think of as a better way of describing chat bots. So I may refer to chat bots and Dialogue Research interchangeably during this episode. Why are chat bots useful? I think it's a longstanding dream in the field of artificial intelligence and computer science. Right? We've we've always had the dream of what if I just talked to my computer like I talked to other people. In converse with them, they would know what are my intentions? Why am I asking them this? What can they do to make my life better or help me along and you know? Programming is fun I love programming, but you know it'd be nice to just communicate with. Computers as well. And what about you? Personally, why are you personally interested in chat bots? Have you pursued this line of work of of all the different kinds of computer science research you could be doing? Yeah. You know I sort of stumbled into this area join fair after my phd where I did work in natural language processing but my my work, my background work was like a little bit more linguistically oriented focused on like the meanings of words a little bit more like what can computers just about language rather than how do we teach computers to understand language? And so you know when I joined. Fair. I was looking for for projects to join projects to collaborate on. So I gave dialogue a shot and it turns out to be a really great ren for me a mix of novel research using using the greatest and latest neural networking and machine learning techniques as well as a bunch of interesting software engineering problems and opportunities for Staley and things like this. What are the domains in which conversational agents or chat bots are actually useful today? What are the places where they're useful versus the places where they're not so useful? Meaning like, what's the? What did they do major? We've actually conquered rather than the ones we're stumbling. Yeah I think you know obviously, you've seen a wave of digital assistance and I think that work is very exciting. a lot of what we focused on in dial in par lay in the dialogue research at facebook is on open domain chat bots, which are chat bots that can talk to you about like literally anything and they're usually not focused on. Accomplishing tasks for you rather like the goal is just to have a conversation with you about anything for as long as possible. So that's primarily where we work and I think we've seen a lot of exciting advances over the past couple years to where I think if you were to try some of these newer chat bots that have come out in the past year you, you'd probably be really impressed with like Oh. Wow. This was further than I. Expect. So I think you see commercially is a lot of digital assistants a lot of success in this a lot of customer service type things when I'm really excited about when I think we've you know where things have made big strides in an big strides in the past year is on these open domain chat bots can actually talk to you about anything. Really so as in I can sit down with a chap today and say, Hey, what's the weather and what is this spot on my skin and recommend me a restaurant that looks appealing. I can do I can ask all of these things of a chat bot today. Yeah. I would put those still in the category of like task oriented Tech Chat bots where there's like some goal in mind like you know answering medical questions or tell me about the. Weather when I really tend to work on and what I'm excited about is these chat bots right so rather instead you might ask what's your favorite chess move and it might go into into detail about like what's its favorite move and why that is or what's your opinion of the fall of the Roman. Empire let's let's debate that. So it's it's it's less about you know what can you do for Maine and more about like let's enjoy the experience together. So, can you give a few more descriptions of what a general purpose chat Bot would be doing? Yeah I think the end game here either. You know wear a true general purpose chapman should do both of these things right? Like if I ask it to to. But Mia, calendar and by then it should absolutely help me out with that where I focused my research is the social part. and. So I think we should see a mix of. The box that we've been developing really focused on I'm having a few different behaviors that I don't think you tend to see any sort of assistant on type chat bots they have consistent persona so they'll have like personalities like. I love basketball or I have. Friends in in the tech industry or something like this, and they can use this information like. Consistently referred to it. You know one of the other attributes that chat bots working on developing and believe Ms really important is empathy bright. So a chat Bot should understand you know as as it's talking with you, what's your mental state like how are you feeling and respond emotionally appropriately to that so no if you say something like my just ran away, you know the chat bots should restall on appropriately with something like, oh, I'm really sorry to hear that have. You say something like I just got a promotion than the Chat Bot should respond Oh. That's great to hear. Congratulations. So responding emotionally appropriately is a really important characteristic of a of an open domain chap on the last one is general knowledge. So you know I think when people talk to to chat bots, they expected to know things about the world some of that's encyclopedia some of its common commonsense reasoning but you know if I ask what's the tallest building in America? You know I sort of expected to be able to have this have this information available to it and be able to answer some questions like that or even integrate this information in in common and common dialogue just oh by the way you know what's what's interesting or you know funny story about that sort of thinks. So consistent personality empathy and a knowledge about the world. These are all things. I think are really important in general demand. You know Geno Purpose Chat Bot. Empathy you mentioned empathy s one of these things that requires some maintenance of context as to what is going on in the conversation. The Chat Bot needs to be able to acknowledge the perhaps sad state or happy state of the person. It's Inter locating with tell me about context how does a Chat Bot retain and understand context in a conversation? Yeah there's a few different ways that people go about it. So one of the more classic ways that people will do and approaches that people will take is they'll do something off dialogue state tracking. So you have like some information about the dialogue like, Oh, the users asking about a restaurant and they wanted to be on fifth street right and you'll have this as some sort of state. That you could do say like some sort of database query about and help them then like when you're doing dialogue research or billion Chapa, the task becomes a lot of like keeping track of that state and updating that state as the conversation goes on. The way that we often approach it is a much more like role neural network fashion. So we just like input all the dialogue context all history as one big stream. You know sort of same person. One said this person to says that person one said this person to said back? What do you say next? So we just treat things as as raw strings and habit. Input that in the model has to figure out Oh, what do we do with fat? How do I respond? Who said what all this has to be from scratch? I'd like to get into. A little bit more of a conversation about facebook. So if you imagined facebook in five years, what are the tasks that you envision dialogue models fulfilling for facebook? That's an excellent question I. Think you know there's all sorts of places where we're dialogue can be helpful to our users. We already have this product called portal. which is a a really excellent product lets you make video calls with people. In. One of the things you can you can do, you can already say like hey. You know call mom. And it starts dialing up on. And that super? Nice, you know some of the other things might be no. As I might have an assistant on on Messenger that that's helping me keep track of what's going what's going on with my friends. You know I might say a assistant you know where the latest updates on my friends and they could. Integrate that information. And you know look through my my news feed for me and say, Oh, Hey, your friend Jim has new photo. He got married right Oh that'd be really cool. So, I think there's a lot of places for for dialogue to be part of FACEBOOK PRODUCTS You work on par lay, which is spelled P. A. R. L. A.. I. What Is Parlay? Parlay is a platform for doing dialogue research. It's an open source platform. It's gotten over one hundred contributors and it's it's got you would need to do to dialogue research so whether that's a collect data set or I want to train a new model, and there's all these data sets out there and I just WANNA use those without without trying anything. I want to create a new new model and I need to compare two baselines compared to other other approaches of people tried before I can just sort try those those different models. It's got a model. Do you know what are the pre-trade models somebody else's released in leverage those when building minute chat? Bot and then it's got everything you will need. To also evaluate a chat, Bot. So you know once you have Chapada unlike a lot of areas in I research it's it's not always clear how to evaluated except the have people talk to it. So we've got all the tools that you need to connector Chapada, Amazon Mechanical Turk and have people chat with it and you give evaluations or give. Performance rating instincts like this. A little bit deeper into the problems that parlay solves for researchers that are using it. Yeah I think quite a few different problems especially in all those all those different spaces you know when you're you're a researcher and you want to create a new data set that you know, let's say you want to create a new data said that teaches the model how to how to have empathy. The thing you're going to do is have humans talk and exhibit empathy and annotate their their their utterances with this sort empathetic information. So we have tools so that you can like creek quickly spin up user interface where you can have that chat where you can annotate that information and sort of build what you need for that. So similarly with evaluation you know I need to connect with the Amazon Mechanical Turk and had people evaluate. You know I don't WanNa have to spend so much time focused on building the UI of this tool or dealing with the engineering of connecting Amazon Mechanical Turk impairing humans together, I. So abstract way from you and when we do that is by treating all. In the in the world as agents so whether you're a data set or Talking to it on Mechanical Turk or human talking to it at your local keyboard or a AI agent everything is agent. So we treat them all the same. This gives us really nice distractions to work with so that we can sort of plug in AI model in place of a human or plug human in place of the model really easily. Parlay makes available a wide set of data sets through its API. How does parley use these different data sets? Yeah, we have over one hundred data sets in parlay. Some of them are from our group some of them are from external groups. And so one of the things we really focus on as a first class feature in. If I want to train the AI that exhibits multiple behaviors. I'm a train, a multiple data sets at the same time. So you it's really easy to sort of say. Okay. That set a data set the set see in start training three of them at the same time and get a model that can do all three of these behaviors on. So that's sort of first class functionality within within parlay. When we were talking earlier about having a model that exhibited the consistent personality empathy in knowledge, we did this with a sort of multitask training as it's called where we train on all different data sets. So if you're a new user or new researcher who wants to come into dialogue, you can sort of take the stock wouldn't data sets out there already and just start utilizing them as needed and if you wanna mix and match behaviors? Hey, no problem. described. The workflow for training chat with parlay. Yeah. So we have a lot of it's very command line, heavy utility or command line heavy platform. So if you want to train a new model, it can be as simple as calling the train model command from the command line and you just sort of say are here the tasks I want here's the model. The model that I want what's the model architecture and things like this? And you know here's the learning rate and all the other neural network parameters and you hit go and start training. alanna researchers went to do a more sophisticated, maybe make a custom architecture or make a custom data set and it's really easy to just sort of build only the part of the data set you need or build only the what's special about your model. She might go right a little bit of custom code utilizing are sort of abstract base classes and things like this. And you'll be off on your way training, your special model, and if you don't WanNa mess with data, you don't have to mess with data you can just use the existing data sets. If you don't WanNa mess for modeling, you don't have the mess with modeling you can just just the data in and start training
[Unedited] Dario Robleto with Krista Tippett
"Ning and. Welcome back to winter. Someone someone wrote me today instead it's raining feathers. So welcome to the institute. I'm Liz Armstrong. Curator. Of Contemporary Art, and we are very pleased to be hosting the second live interview with Krista Tippett for her show and broadcast of on being. As. Many of you know Christa was here two months ago when she spoke with Hamilton and what was a fascinating and far-reaching conversation they covered everything from spiritual act of art making to the strange intimacy of museums where people can be alone together. The the this interview, and that one we're presented. In conjunction with the exhibition currently on view. In our target wing simply called sacred, which is a series of installations, the probe, the nature of the sacred within a secular multi-faith society. By, juxtaposing works of art from Multiple Times in places, the sacred exhibition invites visitors to explore historic and contemporary. Expressions of the divine, the spiritual, the essential in the beloved and to ponder the words meaning in their personal lives. I want to thank the MIA's affinity collectors, group contemporary art for their support of this program, and for helping us visits from artists such as Hamilton. Dario. And now let me just briefly introduce each of our guests. KRISTA Tippett Enduro. Christie needs little introduction on this stage. She's a peabody award winning broadcaster and New York Times bestselling author WHO's highly acclaim radio program on being fills a huge void in the public discussion of spirituality and faith. She's not afraid to. to discuss the big animating questions of human life from how do we want to live to what does it mean to be human? She and her guests explore meaning ethics and what is sacred miss the political cultural and technological turmoil that is first century life. Dario fo was houston-based artists who's known for his highly original repurposing of rare and archaic materials. Like a DJ sampling music and he just told me tonight, he was a DJ once Doria spins in shapes such unconventional materials as dinosaur fossils, meteorite remnants, hand bones, and hipbones, and pulverized vinyl from vintage records. He's been called materials poet. I think of him as a passionate alchemist who memorialize the past while finding new meaning in the tangled roots its history. He's a maker of extraordinary objects that are meditations on war, love death, spirituality, and healing. It's going to be really interesting to him talk about these objects without seeing them. But you can imagine and then you will see them So I'm really looking forward to this conversation. Please join me in welcoming Chris step and Dario. Thank you lose. It's great to be back at Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Feel like I'm an old timer now. So I welcome you. So, Dr. you grew up in San Antonio I grew up in Oklahoma. It did not snow in March where we came from. I've really been looking forward to this for several months as way I planned it. Thank you. Very much. So if I ask you a about the spiritual and religious background of your childhood, where would you start to think about what that means? San Antonio is maybe Catholic central. In America So it's It's hard not to be around that in San Antonio. My grandfather was a Baptist minister. I didn't grow up around ten so much but his is influence definitely. was there the Beckham ahead? And he was definitely a passionate passionate man. My mother. Religion in the home was not ever really an issue but as. I searched it out on my own. I'd asked my friends I could come to church. Catholic methodist I probably sample every every church. Afraid I had. And? I continually. Even at that early age was was very, very interested. So my childhood it I would say it was very self directed. maybe always within the background knowing that thing about my grandfather, there was still this mysterious thing that I didn't really understand. So, maybe it was fairly field that to the searching.
Debates commission denies Trump request for 4th debate
"The nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, rejected a request from the Trump campaign to either add an additional general election debate or move up the calendar for the contest. In a letter To trump private attorney Rudy Giuliani, which is the Trump campaign's Mia's onto the commission. The commission wrote that it is committed to its existing schedule of three debates between Trump And his Democratic challenger Joe Biden, saying it would consider adding 1/4 debate on Ly if both sides agree to it. Both major party nominees have agreed to participate in the three scheduled debates.
Election 2020: Biden's VP Pick
"There's plenty of general reporting out there about each of the possible women who Joe Biden might pick to be his vice president. We're here now to understand the Jewish angle for each of these impressive women to learn what American Jews should know about each of these candidates that might make them more supportive or concerned. So we're going to go one by one and get the Jewish angle from our guest Jacob Corn Blue, the national politics reporter for Jewish insider. Jacob. Thank you for joining us to be back. Let's start with Comma Harris a former candidate for the Democratic nomination a popular senator from California the State with the second largest Jewish population in the country. What's the Jewish angle on Senator Harris? First of all, she married to a Zionist of that Iraqi gets her a Jewish scientist. Yes. So that gives an upper hand in this Jewish of IPE stakes I think that Kamala Harris gives a lot. She adds up to the ticket number one just because she was a popular candidate and people. So her at the start as a rising star and somebody who can really take this to the very end unfortunately it for ourselves she didn't win the primaries should take on. Joe. Biden pretty early which gave. That rise in the polls in the only of twenty twenty. I will say that Biden. Biden comes to see who is preferred choice for Veep Kamala Harris has a big name recognition. Is Obviously arised star and her background, a label as being a black woman from California. But was so high tides in the Senate and in the Jewish community. So the pros are out. The cons are that I'm not sure Biden Israeli looking for someone on the ticket would potentially overshadow him not because Harris Donald understand that if she's on the ticket, she's number two and she's there to serve the presidential nominee and possibly the president. But Because Camera Harris ran on the same slop because she is a bishop you know she can overshadow him in media appearances and potentially as vice president of being a little more independent and vocal than let's say, Dick Cheney and pence on camera beyond the you know the happy coincidence of the Jewish husband is there anything in particular that Jews should know about Senator Harris is policy stances? What has she? Done on issues Anti Semitism, what has she done on supporting Israel, other issues of concern to the Jewish community I guess close ties with APEC obviously. She's spoken at several APEC conferences but she also appealed to the mainstream of the Democratic Party She's not seen as a controversial figure amongst progressives say as someone who is too pro Israel for them she will reflect the same policies that Biden Obama and. Anybody, else running a Democratic Party other than on the an Warren's she would you know align herself with the second policy views? So I don't think she's outstanding. She's not too long in the Senate to look back at a record by think, she has a strong provisions record and she is aligned itself with the mainstream of the Democratic Party next, let's talk about political MIA fights, Susan, rice, Susan Rice served. As US ambassador to the UN in President Obama's first term and his national security adviser in his second going even further back in time actually I think I think she was the youngest ever assistant secretary of State She was you know thirty three or something like that when President Clinton in Nineteen Ninety eight made her the system secretary of State for Africa what did you need to know about Susan? Rice. Well Susan Rice first of all is A. Mixed emotions about Susan, Rice obviously, she has good ties with prominence numbers of the Jewish community and she has a record serving as national security adviser and embassador to the UN on their Obama Democrats SAPORTA. Mostly Obama's policy when it comes to how other than the last UN Security Council. Two, three, three, four, a resolution, and just mind our listeners about two three four why that was controversial. The only time when Obama. ABSTAINED ON APRIL then. All on settlements that you know really couldn't dent on Obama's record when it comes to a majority of American Jews talking about Republican Jews, all those. In Israel who soul Obama as being the more salt when it comes to the Palestinian issue. But Susan Rice obviously had a this overlap from being a national security adviser and the to the UN. Obviously, she was a controversial figure on this front. She was criticized by Dennis. Ross by the full hug combative style. When came to the Palestinian issue on the other hand, she has very strong ties with somebody like a Fox who is very vocal in his pro Israel stats
"mia" Discussed on What Should I Do With My Life? Figuring it Out From Those Who (Seem to) Have it All Figured Out
"It's a pain in sip shop, which means you learn how to paint step-by-step a specific painting band instructor, and then there's also a bar inside. So the the name is pretty self explanatory, but I feel like that's a really good place to be during corona or quarantine like, Oh, I'm in I'm here in a bar yet it has art. Supplies in pain I feel like you could have a lot of fun with that. It's sort of like there's the basement is where all the inventory is. So when like all the shops were closed and I needed art supplies like I felt like it was my own private Michael's like I would come here and describes that's all I like beer and wine. Only got. That's everything I miss. Michael's. So I just want to let everyone know that today we're being joined by MIA shown and she's amazing and it's very funny connection but we only became friends later in life in Israel but our moms grew up together in New York and I believe that when my mom discovered facebook and discovered, she could find old friends she looked up menas mom reached out and then. She found out that we went to the same university missile under the same universities, all these great things but we really connected here in Israel Mia has an amazing story. I'm so excited to have you here. So we're just GONNA dive end. So in a sentence, can you just tell me what you do? Well, I do a lot of different things, but I'll try and sort of narrow down. I'm a visual artist. With a focus on installing public mosaic euros. So you're a bad ass basically and very talented one at that. I've seen your work in I've participated in some of your workshops and we're GonNa talk a bit more about that. So from what I understand, as you said, the paint bar is your family business that really this. Artistic Gene is very prevalent and that art and creativity in your family. So I would just love to hear a bit more about your family background because it's really awesome. Okay. So art in our family like we grew up I grew up in a family very, very focused on art and I think all the women in our family are focused on art, which is interesting and so growing up it was sort of like. I have eleven, cousins, and. If you're like you're the black sheep if you're the doctor like your. Like artists so ingrained in our family that it was never like a question that I would become an artist as my profession. So does tracing back my great grandmother was born in Massachusetts in nineteen hundred and she was a watercolour painter also she used to illustrate. Models wearing lingerie before they put photographs in magazines Oh meow like yeah. So she would paint these women wearing different. You know whatever slips or browser. So on and that was her job, and then she also aimed at a lot and then. That was on my grandfather's side, and then my grandmother is also a public sculptor who works in bronze. And then I have two of my aunts are artists. One is a textile designer. One is a A pod ceramicist and my. Texts other diner also paints like everyone does everything and then I mentioned my mom and sister have a business called the paper, which is where you paint in drink. So crazy run deep and I have my cousins are in art my other cousins like a fine artists in setting in school mike even the ones who aren't pursuing art professionally are still. I would say very creative thinkers and they could pursue art if they wanted to was just obvious for you that this is what you would be doing obviously led to do when I was a kid but I also think anyone born into my family would have been encouraged to art so like I think my mom had her eyes open to like what kind of artistic towns we had. So it wasn't. Like, there are many people friends of mine who are good at art in I would say like, okay. If you were born into my family, you would've pursued that professionally instead of it's like a hobby because. The matriarch of our family is like a practicing artists in his very successful. So it was like nobody could use the word like Oh. You don't WanNa be a struggling artist because right the Venar because like that's that's what we do an amazing role model to to it. So I was just thinking I feel like most families the stereotype would be don't be the struggling starving artists you know don't do that do that as a side project and And your family literally took that and made that happen. So I love you could just talk a bit more about what that means that you're a visual artists and some of the stuff you've done. So Yeah I, I've seen like a visual artist because I worked in a working a lot of different mediums. I do I really focused in school on painting, which is like my first focus in I'd love doing portraits. So that was like my first thing I kind of realized that would be difficult to do professionally. So I, kind of got into mosaic, which is a very unique medium that. Mosaic is a great medium for somewhere like tel-aviv because. The city is full of concrete walls which are very suitable to do mosaics on and so when I moved, there was sort of like I should.
Abby Wambach: If you're not a good leader on the bench, you cannot call yourself a good leader on the field.
"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The scam is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen. Today, we have a very special guest joining us abby Wambach is here with us on skin from the couch she is a two time Olympic gold medalist, a FIFA World Cup champion, and a member of the national soccer hall of fame. Also, she hasn't slowed down in retirement she is now a New York Times. Author and equal pay activists. We I had the pleasure of meeting abby when we spoke to her wife, Glennon Doyle on the show in March and we dragged her onto the podcast as well, and if you haven't listened to that episode, go check it out. It's a good one abby. Thank you so much for joining us today. Welcome to skin from the catch. Yeah. Thanks for having me. I'm so thrilled and honored to be with you all on three different couches. Thou-. Before. We jump into our first question I have to tell you I was looking at our prep for this and there was one bullet in here. That has really made me laugh as I have to share it, which is that you used to have a special card that got you a free Burrito a day from AAA but it stopped working when you're retired that seems passive aggressive for sure to Poli what the F.. Yeah. So when I first got this card, it was Gosh I must've been ten years ago now and you know like the gold cards portly for life like essentially my name is on it and you guys don't know how I go way back. From the early days and I mean I would get a Burrito. Day You guys we're both creatures of habits. I respect this. Yeah. It was crazy and this is before we really knew how many calories were in each burrito. Bowl that I would make or Burrito early days. and. So then yeah, of course when I retired, I was super excited to still be able to get one free Burrito a week for year, but they never really checked up on it but then I think when I got a family when I married Glenn and attained. That you know fifteen dollar meal. Turned into a sixty five dollar meal or seventy dollars meal for the whole family and pull was like I. Don't know if we're GONNA keep floating this for her so. It was a good run while it lasted I'm sorry that you've struggled with that but I did make me laugh as read. So, we're going to jump into our very first question. We'd like to ask everybody it just skim your resume skin my resume. It's so funny because when you retire, that's like that's essentially what I've had to do over the last four or five years of my life since retiring from playing on the national team, and if people don't really know I played for a long time on our women's national team. So Ski. My life I'm the youngest of seven children I grew up in Rochester New York, and I went to the University of Florida and played soccer there for four seasons where after I was drafted number two by the way just remember this folks you don't get drafted number one. You can still succeed I was drafted number two out of college to go play for a team called The Washington freedom the best player in. The world at the time. Mia. Hamm played on that team and it really changed my life because we were able to develop a connection that then transferred into me getting called into the national team and playing on the national team in scoring goals in the national team, and then I had a pretty long career representing his country won a gold medal. I want a couple of medals actually I won a fee. For Women's World Cup. World. Cup. I should say it doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl that's pretty awesome in my retirement I have kind of taken on this activism role that when I play ironically when I played I was a little bit more like just go and do my job and we were going to show our activism rather than talk about it. But when you quit playing, you gotta actually transfer that. Because I can't play anymore I can't show it in the ways that I used to. So I've transitioned into becoming a public speaker and an activist and apparent and wife, and that is my skin. Has a great skin? What is it like to be really good at something where young 'cause I have? No clue. Yeah I mean it's confidence building you know I felt like. Okay. I know that I'm good at this thing over here but I think you know all of us have our little things right? Like no matter what kind of. Place we grew up or family we grew up in or what kind of trauma we we experienced as a child because we all do some of US feel like we're unlovable my case in particular some of us were neglected. Some of us were over parented like we all have problems inside of our family dynamics that for me really allowed me to and gave me the courage to propel in this kind of an individualistic career. So when I was young I kind of was a very big risk taker. I was a free spirit is what they called me, I think that's what they call children who don't follow the rules as much as their parents want them to and I think that the other side of that coin is I was really trying to get the attention of my parents, right. So the very thing that might have felt trauma or hardship from in my childhood is the very thing that made me successful. So I have to always remember that like as much as I as young as seven children. As much as all of us wanted the attention of our parents, I do think that kind of parent team actually shaped me and and allowed me to explore this competitiveness inside. In this drive and this embiid to go after what I needed and what I wanted. So I give a lot of credit to that form of parenting into that trauma

National Collections: You could become the guardian of a major houseplant genus
"You are a regular listener to the show, you will know that I have visited various national collections of house plants for example, the pepperoni Mia Collection of Sallie Williams and Mercy Marci's spider plant collection clarify Tim Komo Zim, but what are these national collections? And what do they do I? Go to press release this week from the charity plot heritage, who runs the National Collection Scheme here in the UK, telling me that they were on the hunt for national collection holders for some missing Genera- an among those missing generate were to that we as houseplant lovers know all about, and that's Hoyer and try to scan tier so I thought I. I would give plant heritage a cool and find out a little bit more about what being national collision holder involves. My name is Vicky Cook and I'm the conservation manager here. At plot heritage I have an audience of global proportions, so lots of people pops all fully aware of what plant heritage in the UK what you do. Can you just give us a little positives through plum heritage plot heritage was founded in the nineteen seventies, and it seems damage to ensure that the incredible diversity of cultivated plot that we have in this country remain available for generations to come and I said. We've got a really strong history in the UK of. The Plant Gardens from from the plant hunters enrolled plant breeders, the Grande Estates, and just the enthusiastic which public we're a nation of. And we've huge diverse garden flora, but there's a you know a mechanism. Otherwise that was realized in the seventy s to stop as losing, and if you know any good plans and one of the delightful things about these national collections that you mentioned is that it means people who live the country who are really passionate about particular species or genus who have a taking care of. Of these plants and recording their collections, and making sure that they stay around forever, which is fantastic, but you don't have all of the different Genera- that we grow in our houses and gardens covered, and this is where we've got. This got this press release the other day from you about your missing Genera and I was very excited. Slash worried to see the two of them are. Generally very much favorites of mine. Can you tell me about what you're doing to try to sort out these missing Genera? And and the trans- county and Hoyer Genera- Jeff Genus in particular, although we've got six hundred and fifty plot collections all around the country that in no way covers all of the different plant groups that we grow in the UK. And the role of the national collections are to to collect more or less all you can of that particular Genus Plant Group documented develop conserve for the future, and and also research to and become an authority on that plot group so. Year we try and identify maybe the top ten most interesting plot groups that we would like to see somebody step forward for and become an actual connection holder for and yeah as you say to, them happened to be hoyer and try discount in tastic I cannot believe that no one has the whole national collection slightly disturbed by this spot, because the temptation to apply is great, but I don't think I've got the skills. What's involved in having a national collection or applying for one so well? The first thing really is to have a passion for your punk rock I think that probably goes. Goes without that question, but then the first thing to do would be to to get in touch ready, and we can give you. Some advice and guidance have to get stopped. It's it might be that you don't have many plans to start with them. We can give you some guidance on how to focus the scope of a connection so some groups a huge, and you might not want to own have space for all of them, but we can give advice by maybe collecting all the cultivars of a particular species within that group for everything that was intr- introduced by certain breeder or person. And then yeah, then the next thing is to start collecting and documenting and making sure that you've got good labeling. Systems and records are in order, and then yeah, you can make an application to have an extra clock election soons easy, but how how many plants are we talking about here? I? mean how many different Hoya species of you identified. That might might come under this hoyer national collection. Is it many well? It's difficult to say because there's about eighteen species and cultivars currently in the rhs plot finder, which is what we use as general. Guide to to what is currently available but I. I've no doubt there are plenty more available with specialists around the country, so it would be interesting to see for of these more tropical plant group. Currently easing cultivation in the UK and what you find out so sometimes people started thinking Oh. This is like a nice small plot report. Collect that, but the more you start digging, the more you realize how much she's out there.

Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's, Rooted in Racist Imagery, to Change
"It's a seismic shift for a more than century old brand with a controversial history today, the Pepsico unit that sells aunt Jemima products, says it's dropping the name and image that's long been used on its pancake mixes and syrups because of its origins in racist imagery of black people also today the Mars Company said it would change its uncle Ben's brand and Conagra said it's putting its Mrs Butterworth's brand under review. They're just some of the companies that are reexamining their histories, products and messaging amid nationwide calls for racial justice and Equality. Joining me now to discuss how big brands are responding or Wall Street Journal, business columnist John Stole and reporter Jennifer Maloney. So, let's start with the big decision today from Pepsico to retire. Aunt Jemima products. This is a huge change. The brand dates back to the late eighteen hundreds Jennifer. What's changed the company's opinion on using the imagery and the name here? What did you hear from Pepsi? They say that in the wake of the killing of George Floyd they recognize that and Jemima's origins are based on racial stereotype, and that while they have made changes over the years to update the brand in a manner that they said was intended to be appropriate and respectful that they now realizes that those changes aren't enough just to look back at the history of this brand. It dates back to eighteen eighty nine. It was inspired by popular song called Old Aunt. My that was typically performed in minstrel shows by a white man. Man in black face, and the creators of the pancake brand hired a former enslaved woman named Nancy Green to be the spokeswoman. She made her debut at a world's fair in Chicago in eighteen ninety three singing in telling stories and making pancakes outside booth, designed to look like giant flour barrel, and the packaging has featured an image of a black woman. Originally, she wore a head scarf the over the years. That image has evolved in thousand, nineteen, hundred nine. The company updated the imagery and replaced the headscarf with Pearl earrings analyst caller. And this isn't the only brand that's acted in recent years or even recent weeks at this point to remove offensive stereotypes, but this moment really feels like something of a sea change in the way, companies are thinking about an also responding more immediately to calls for Racial Justice John. Do you see an increase in responsiveness on the part of major companies in this particular moment? I think the era that we're in right now is kind of. Let's turn over the most obvious things that we can do it. My mind went to completely different. People grew, but you think about the Washington Redskins for instance I? I mean for years. There's been complaints about anti-obama for years. There's been complaints about the Washington redskins and it takes a moment like this for a company to say okay. We need to do the obvious thing that is right by our consumers and our employees. You know you have to remember like it's not just the the consumers and the shelves at stores that the PepsiCo executives or executives at other companies are worried about. They're worried about. Their employees are workforces their stockholders. There's a lot of constituents here that they have to think about before making a move in any other direction and I think. We learned a couple years ago when Nike took a proactive move and canceled a shoe that Colin Kaepernick said would potentially be offensive to the black community. It really was a line in the sand. Where I think the company said. Let's err on the side of caution. It is interesting to see. Not just PepsiCo, but other brands thinking about everything from the way that they advertise market to the way that they speak internally to employees to whether they're not. They're going to sell or buy facial recognition that could potentially be disadvantageous to certain racists. The Big Litmus test for me is whether or not or companies stopped doing stupid stuff. I mean it's amazing. How many companies just put their foot in it over and over again on issues that most most Americans would say that just was not a good. Add to even think about. Our ad got leaked. oops, you're like. Wait a minute. Greenlighted the idea in the first place, so you know I you've seen. Companies create chief diversity officers, the board of directors getting involved there will be an extra layer scrutiny for quite some time on every brand in existence, and then on top of that all of the initiatives going forward. Yeah and to that point, Jennifer. It seems that we are seeing an uptick in companies that are responding more immediately. We also heard from the company behind the Uncle Ben's brand today. Right Mars which makes uncle. Ben's Rice told The Wall Street Journal that it will change its ankle brand. It doesn't know exactly how or when, but they say that they're evaluating all possibilities, and they have committed to making a change. We also saw. Saw earlier this year that land lakes dropped the indigenous woman Mia. It had long featured on its packaging. The company said that that was meant to better reflect its culture. She had first appeared in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, eight, and kneeling in sort of stereotypical clothing and clutching Orlando Container, so we're seeing some of these iconic brands that sort of have drawn on racial stereotypes, really doing some soul-searching right now, I mean. When the NFL. Reverses Course on activities that for a long time it tried to stand at standard arm's length from like kneeling during the national anthem, and now has reversed course as aggressively as they have. It shows the force of the moment that we are in, and it also shows I think finally a level of recognition that a big part of the employee base in the NFL or a big part of the consumer base at Pepsi are not just black. They're also empathetic and agreeing with. The social progress that has kind of being signalled with the demonstrations with the constant drumbeat of black lives, matter or whatever other people group. Legitimately marginalized or offended by age old practices. And how big of a role is the public pressure playing here I mean not just demonstrators and. who are out in the streets, but also pressure for these companies from within from their own employees we've seen employees feel more empowered, and and far more bold to say what they feel. And to get the discussion from a discussion to actual action, I mean I think I've done interviews for twenty years about discussions. We've got to have a discussion. We've got a dialogue. We've got to get this out into the public. Square and I think people are saying. Hey, enough is enough. It's like we gotta do something. It's like when people complain. After a mass shooting about thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers are great, but they're not going to bring back my son or they're not gonna change this happening again. We need action and I think employees are starting to say. You can put the statement out. You can put the tweet out. You can change the your your your twitter profile whatever you WanNa do for a day or two, but what are going to be the steps to lasting and meaningful change. The employees are definitely starting to feel that way. Yeah, it also seems like there's a much bigger call to action. Now I mean I've spoken to co workers and friends about all the messages were getting via email from companies. You wouldn't think would normally weigh in on issues of racial justice, but. It seems like this is a time where people are saying. Need more than just words, so is what we're seeing from big brands enough. Well, this is what big companies across the United States and beyond are grappling with right now. Their own workforce's are demanding significant structural change. And so you see companies sort of racing, not just to put out statements to supporting black lives matter movement, but. To introduce new initiatives policies in terms of hiring in terms of charitable, giving in terms of you know trying to promote people of color up through the ranks of the organization diversify their boards, and I think we're going to see more as the days and weeks progress, but we already have seen a number of announcements from companies to pledging. Actions and and trying to put money where their mouth is.
Police unions dig in as calls for reform grow
"States across the US are in their second straight week of protests over the killing of George Floyd by a police officer many hope to see police reform they have reached a current though and that's often the police unions to talk about the role of police unions and the power they hold over reforms we have Booker Hodges assistant commissioner at the Minnesota department of public safety and let's bring it round the lord a police union labor negotiator former police officer and the former president of a state wide police union in Texas run thank you so much for joining us well thanks for having me we're getting a lot of comments from the moment given example one listener tweets it seems all other unions are under attack but police unions only gets stronger what accounts for this and then Richard tweets the left is finally realizing public unions make it very difficult to remove crappy employees teacher police if you suck at your job you've got to find another job these these questions Rauner kind of centered around what makes police unions different I think and could you answer that for us to can we look back to the history of police used to get the answer well sure and I think the I always call it kind of the duck billed platypus of unions they're in a union but they don't look like other unions and there's a big reason for that because of the nineteen nineteen Boston police strike it pretty much wiped out unionization in America until really into the nineteen sixties they do said paternal so ninety eighty five ninety percent of all the police United States do not belong to the AFL-CIO they have one chartered union and it's a it's a small percentage so the police were late getting into the labor firefighters had an international in nineteen eighty S. all the public employee unions construction units you know that some of those are a hundred years old so police were late to the game they were used in many times as strike breakers and picket lines and so they didn't gravitate in there tend to be conservative by nature so their unions look different but they're still just working people their blue collar working people who form the groups who have become adept at using the American political system to increase our wages and pay in for job security so I'm not ashamed to be in a policeman or representing the police they can only do in a increase their strength or get their message out it's all illegitimate nature so different than people that are anti gun and pro gun you know free speech no free speech in America everyone has a right to speak out on things so well of concern to their members we got this tweet Booker from Tracey Wheeler and she mentions what Ron just said about the fraternal order of police Tracy says the police union's name the fraternal order of police is symbolic of the fact that it operates like an old boys club officers who speak up about bad cop behavior are ostracized in this culture and I want to put this book or in the context of what we heard earlier from you lie at the the Marshall project who was saying that often times African American cops don't want to join leadership because they don't want to be part of that culture yes so yeah I think there's there are some differences between African American officers on what offices regarding union membership I mean mia love the vast majority of my career I was in the union I was a union president you know so I didn't have some of those issues but a lot of the other people I know who are in other organizations did have issues regarding how that they didn't feel that the union represented them or didn't defend them as strongly as they did white officer so I I I'm fully aware that that issue does exist within the labor unions run it sounds like you wanted to respond to that as well well that issue exist in America so you could say I'm a seventy two year old white man who grew up in the south where our view the world may be different than a black person my age who grew up different but men and women officers have different views about things Hispanic officers have different views are Asian awesome so that's in it in and of itself but you have to say policing in America is eighty five percent means there's been no woman firefighter president that I'm aware of any part of union in America ever so so we look at it and then we say yes but they appear to be older white men yes but there haven't democratic elections welcome back officers in America only about twelve percent of the police no less maybe nineteen so that's wrong but the pollution is not hurting anybody the city hires the city provides room recruitment in six cities were even worse off when it comes to female officers their lesson about twelve percent of the police which is half the number of Canada Australia and other European countries so thank you in that profession is eighty five percent median and whatever sixty seventy percent white means that white men tend to gravitate up yes but lots of officers don't become involved in the

We kind of experience When transitioning and just navigating that life with our parents so we also recorded with MIA's mother so this particular episode is going to be that recording?

"mia" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast
"And I'm sure and I haven't seen the musical, but I, I would wager guests that this would be even more agreed in the musical just because it's older that him being queer, almost like a punchline just to take him out of the running as it were for Meryl's heart. Right? But I don't know. I haven't been musical. I, I don't remember how that plays out, but I wanna see it. Yes. So would we have liked to have seen more than what we're given short is that question has real question. I would always like to see more Qurna. Right? I will not wrestle every single person, both actors and characters. Queered Move mentioned. mention, how awesome an all queer version of. Would it would be like, basically is so why not just let it be? Yes, I want some between Mrs. Weasley. Yeah, it should be like a young transportation who's like, I wanna know which like sperm donor who like only if I going to get Alzheimer's. Only. Very practical. Yeah, that should be the story. And I also wanna talk about how the reviews for this movie versus mama. Mia. Here we go again, who knows. Eight on run tomatoes. It only got a fifty, four percent fresh so audio, not critics. So critics did not especially like this movie was about half and half where they were like nuts. Okay. Other ones really do, but mama, Mia, here we go again as of this recording, has an eighty percent fresh on rotten tomatoes, dick critics. So people have been pointing that your shit. And it's it's not as though mama. Mia. Here we go again is a much better movie on me are worse based on the fact that Meryl Streep is not really in it. The only run is good in ma-ma one is because it's cheap, but mama me. Here we go again, does have Fernando in it, making it the better movie, but but I do wanna see that movie now have to. I do. Yeah. I mean, now that I've really loved the first one, I'm like doubt to better be good. You know, if you skipped Mumia to doubt to better be fucking bang. So the point is people are talking about how the sequel is any better. It's just that like the cultural landscape has shoe, isn't that Donald Trump is president. People need to feel happy. Right? And I think it's like critics are a little more tolerant of like a female driven story about a woman who humps a bunch of guys. Okay. Humps that is an attack. I can't. You just use that word on serious. I I love. love how. I will leave. Like many filmmakers are straight white men. So are many movie critics. So I know, I don't know. I just wanted to point out the disparity between the fresh and rotten ratings like in this ten year gab between the two movies coming out and it's not as though the sequel is that much better. I think it's just that we're seeing a little bit of a shift happening in our landscape. Yeah, I, I agree that like the criticism landscape is shifting and also there's more like not to toot around fucking horn, sorry. But there are more like there are other outlets to to talk about movies on that. There weren't in two thousand eight, including, like I mean, two thousand eight. That's like, oh, gee, and that's like where I lock in the gates, you know? Yeah. Well, I think this movie is the my favorite movie. I love to listen. I'm not ashamed to say I love to feel good. Yeah. Yeah, I love field movie. I like to feel good. I can't usually feel the way I feel after watching mama, Mia or mama. Mia to here we go again without a lot of drugs or Bubby or Bubby than the current right. Is that the word that we were working for whenever we have to make up or Bobby, this movie makes me very. Bobby. They did go again. This is maybe Meryl's best year. I mean, on one hand in the summer, she is mama. She's bubbly? Yeah. By winter from Windsor, she's doubting up store. She hangs mama and then fall is Julia. That's the Merrill spectrum, like on a scale of Donna to lady, what's her name? Sister Allah wishes or Allah wishes. Listen, I stand for sister Ella wishes. Don't get me wrong. Makes them go local..
