Fresh update on "martina" discussed on No Challenges Remaining

"Anybody who sort of appreciates the history of tennis knows how incredibly not apples to apples eras are from when our court was playing in the 60s and 70s to now. And in ways that both both California and against various different players marks, right? So Margaret court was playing. She began her career and began racking up Grand Slam titles before the open era when only amateurs reply. And this was less of a factor on the women's side than it was on the men's side because very few women were turning professional, but it was still a factor. And more importantly, from our court, she racked up a lot of her titles at the Australian open when it was only 32 players draw and very few top international players were going there on an annual basis the way they do now. So she was playing against a pretty depleted field for many of those. Many of those women in Australia I think 11 of her 24 are Australian open titles and very few of those would have been against a full strength field. So I think those are important things to note. And I will say also in the case of two other players who are in the sort of goat conversation in Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, they won their 18, they tied at 18, they won their 18 at a time when players were not routinely playing all four grand slams in a year. When they weren't making the trip to Australia, they were not Australian, so they were not playing that tournament regularly for lots of their career. And also the French Open was a much more minor tournament at that time. And there were several years when peak Chris Evert, who was unbeatable on clay in that time, skipped the French Open to play world team tennis instead in check contracts with them. So that's just to say that you can't look at these numbers and think they're the be all end all. I think it's gotten very simplified into this being the one currency that always converts. In these discussions, but it just doesn't. For better and worse. I think you can more or less say apples to apples relatively with Serena and Steffi Graf. In terms of the grand slams having similar status in those times, although Steffi Graf had a much shorter career, she retired at 30. So, you know, in terms of density of winds and stuff, there's different things you can value and you can fudge every way you want. But yeah, it was interesting to see Serena talk about some disappointment about the court record and I got to say I don't know if you feel the same way. I feel like if everything had been the same in her career minus the court record, I kind of think Serena would have walked away when she was pregnant and had just won her 23rd. Australian up in 2017. I don't think she would have tried to come back. Do you agree? I mean, maybe I think it seems like she just for whatever reason, her career has just carried on and on and she does seem to just found motivation wherever it is. But I agree with your general points. And I guess I'll just say it beyond that growing up following tennis. It was always the open air. Peter, the records that people have always ever spoken about the open era. It had been drilled into my head that Steffi Graf was that was the benchmark and so yeah well I had to say that I don't think that the fact that she wasn't able to equal Margaret court had only takes away from my career really at any awareness. It has no, I don't know. It has more relevance to how I view her career. Obviously, it was just the final part of her career and kind of the relative mental frailty in the big moments is a big departure from her prime and it's a different, it gives a different view to the final part of our career, but I don't think, yeah, but I don't think it has any relevance to how we will see her as a tennis player, you know, as we look back on her career. Yeah, I think that's right. And I also think it's interesting what you say about latter part of her career mental side. One of the most amazing Serena stats and this is not necessarily anywhere. Not a priority for this moment, conversation. But Serena going into the 2015 U.S. open had made the semifinals of a grand Sam 28 times. And had won the title 21 of those 28 times. She was an unbelievable closer, right? And then after that, starting with da Vinci laws, she became a really shaky closer in grand slams. I believe after going 21 for 28, I believe she went to something like two for ten. In the rest of her career in semifinals, which was a huge, huge departure. And those four grandstand finals she played after coming back, she didn't win a set in any of them, and some of them were pretty lopsided routes against her, really, almost all of them, I think were arguably pretty lopsided defeats. So that's a tough note to end. But at the same time, I hate this, I hate this feeling. Even if that statistic does sort of argue for it, that Serena ended her career sort of with any sort of falling short just because she'd already come so far. And was playing with what should have been so much like house money. I've said this before on NCR, but I just sort of resent on her behalf. This great feeling that Federer had for so much of his late career because he got the men's all time slam record pretty early. Relatively in his career, he got it in 2009 when he won his 15th Grand Slam that was to pass Pete Sampras at Wimbledon 2009. And then the rest of the time he was just sort of the guy and could be relaxed and just enjoy being Roger Federer, which seems like it was a great deal in life, where Serena still played with a sort of sense of weight on her in terms of its record hanging over her. And that was frustrating that, you know, there were times where she talked about why to not worry about that and I think sometimes where she believes I would have she did and it was sort of an oscillating thing both in her own minds and in the public's mind, but I liked it in the recent years to try to frame it as her going for her open era record extending 24th Grand Slam. Not so much for the record time. I'm for market quarter ratio, honestly. Yeah. I've definitely tried to frame it like that in the past as well.

Tennis Pro Martina Navratilova Weighs in on Trans Swimmer

"Martina Navratilova was one of the who is a feminist. And a gay activist for that matter, one of the great tennis players in women's tennis. And she has railed against the cheating against women being done. So of course, LGBTQ, which is another left wing movement that hates the society and hates our mainstream values, hates Martina Navratilova. Life is devoted to gay liberation and women's liberation and she is now canceled. Because she thinks only biological women should compete against biological women.

"Love salad isn't the only quirky dish martina grew up with. Here's another family favorites. A dish that you have in one of your cookbooks. It's called the banana mayo thing. What is that does. Can you describe it. And what's its significance your family. This is something that i've had ever since i was a kid. I would always try to get my friends to try it and they would think it was so weird Grandma's kind of brought it into our family but basically what it is. Is you take a banana and slice it. Lengthways you put menes. My dad uses miracle whip. I use mayonnaise. Put managing report on top in dense. Sprinkle it with cinnamon and then you're just like that. Is that dislike after school snack. Yep well we had a for after school snacks anytime. We have a cookout mostly in the summer. Come to think of it. I think we it was mostly a summer kind of seasonal food. 'cause mayonnaise in season in the summer. I mean i haven't made it for a long time. Need to make my kids like it. People tasted they like it. It just sounds really weird. I'm going to try it because there's been a lot of people interviewed on this show who have liked weird combinations and every time i've tried something i've liked it so you never know. Let me now. Is this something just from your family or have you ever heard anybody else. Say oh i grew up that too. I have never ever met anybody else that grew up eating that. But yeah it's good martina. I hope you're listening because i need you to. You are not alone. The banana sandwich may not have been a thing in kansas. But it is a thing in the south in some places including the place where i grew up. You were more likely to be fed a banana sandwich in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. That sherry castle a food writer based in chapel hill north carolina. She says the banana sandwich can't be traced back to just one place is not big in the south are pockets. I think it's families. I think if your mom and grandmother and them eight banana sandwiches. They fed them to their children. Like you make a pb and j. and it was passed down that way. Martina mcbride grew up in kansas. So she smack dab in the middle and her family eight and they sell douse. I bet you from somewhere. Along the way there was someone in her family that lived in the south at some point that would make sense because megan thought the pimento cheese and the fluffed salad also sounded southern. Now if you follow me on instagram. Hello rachel bell b. l. e. always be plugging as friend of the show. John hodgman says you know. I am obsessed with tomato sandwiches during peak tomato season. And i learned about this north carolina obsession from past guest sam beam from iron and wine if you missed that episode. He wants a stack of them for his last meal. The north carolina tomato sandwich is squishy untested white bread mayonnaise slices of ripe heirloom tomato and salt. That's it and sherry a fellow. North carolina tomato sandwich lover says the banana sandwich is pretty similar. You need to have the squishy white bread with certain absorbent see and you need good mayonnaise and you need a tasty banana just like you can't make a good tomato sandwich with Tomato you owe it yourself to get banana. The actually smells taste like banana. To have the full effect of how wonderful combination can be when a dishes. Simple the details matter like how you cut the banana sherry prefers cut in long spears as opposed to little banana coins. Now i'm sure a lot of you heard banana and then you heard mayo and you started violently breaking your martina mcbride records over your knee because girl. How could you ever put those two things together. Why do you think mayonnaise is so controversial. But i think people automatically think uh banana with mayonnaise but all it is is oil and eggs which are two things that you would put in a cake batter that you would put bananas. Then absolutely is people realize that manny's is considered one of the mother sauces. Were the french mother sauces. Maybe they wouldn't get so hung up on manny's i don't understand people that don't like it but we all have our things that we do in. Don't like but you know. There is the interplay up tangy mayonnaise with as little hints of citrus. Several in the is indian next week banana. I guess if we call it a banana toast instead of a banana. Sandwich are just refrained at some way that may be. It wouldn't be such a barrier for people. There are also people that will not eat manny's on anything for any reason and that's fine. That's fine a lot of people like the salty and the sweet or the savory and sweet and that's kind of this is. I haven't tried this yet so i'm going to over the weekend. Try the sandwich. And i feel like i'm gonna like it because every time i try something like this like peanut butter and pickles. It's always good. Yes since she were so smitten with the tomato sandwich guarantees. I think you're well positioned to be open minded about the banana sandwich sherry says. There is no solid origin story for the banana sandwich. But she a theory on why it was created in the south. She says when bananas were first imported into the united states from tropical countries they first arrived at big southern ports and they've always been an affordable fruit. She says a southerners condiment of choice is mayonnaise and says southerners like to turn pretty much anything into a sandwich smash all three of those things together. And you've got a banana mayonnaise sandwich. Anything else about the banana sandwich or have. We squeezed this topic dry dry. I do want to say one thing about bananas because a log towards like this. The way bananas are meant to be eaten is dietrich went out and put your finger on it impressed lightly it will divide map -solutely perfect thirds. And once you know that you can never stop doing it and it will be a fact. Would you can share with people the rest of your life. Okay wait so you peel the banana and then you press in to one end impress your finger in the banana will magically separate into absolutely perfect for. You could use it for math lessons for small chill. I can't wait to do this. I can't wait to sherri thank you so much for giving me time to talk about this ridiculous topic. I enjoyed nothing. Nothing more than a ridiculous food topic in a good conversation. So thank you for your time. I'm delighted you reached out coming up after the break. How food factored into.

"For her last meal. Martina mcbride wants her. Mom's pot roast mashed potatoes and gravy porn cooked carrots roles with butter and fluff. Salad kraft cheese marshmallows. Pineapple and cool whip yes. Marshmallows and cool whip is a salad. A word midwesterners us quite loosely. They make cookie salads knickers salad and earlier this year. Food network host friend of the show and north dakota residents. Molly caused a riot online when she made popcorn salad on her show. It's white cheddar popcorn mixed with snap peas carrots and celery coated in a mayonnaise. Sour cream mustard dressing with a little bit of vinegar and sugar. What is the definition of a salad. Because you know we all know the classic green kind of garden salads and then there's tuna salad egg salad which seems totally different. And then there's this whole other category in the midwest things like cookie salad and snicker salad which seemed to completely defy. What most of us think of as a salad. So how do you define it a salad dish mixed with vegetables or fruit. It's usually served cold in has addressing. It covers all these crazy salads. You know sticker salad contains. Apples fits it works. That's megan hill executive chef and founder of culinary hill amid western recipe website. I grew up in. Wisconsin lived there for thirty years. And now i'm in santa clarita california which is just north of los angeles. So are you doing all midwestern food in california. Yes in a lot of my team from california and so they don't necessarily understand what we're doing in this way pretzels with cream cheese and jello. What meghan just described is called a pretzel jello salad. You smash pretzels and mix them with butter and sugar. Put it in the bottom of the nine by thirteen or something like cake pan and you bake that. And in the meantime you mix up a block of cream cheese with some cool whip and then when the crust is cool you spread that over the top and then you put some frozen strawberries or raspberries in the newport jello on top of the fruit and that cream cheese layer it sits on top of the cream cheese layer layer. And you chill it and you slice these nice squares of this desert once. It's all solid and usually do strawberry jello for that. I do. yeah so good. I understand the logic of a salad being a cold dish with fruits vegetables and some kind of dressing to bind it altogether. But if you have to make a crust. Is it still a salad. i don't think midwesterners are gatekeepers of salad in. That's why they accept all of these recipes as salads. Because they want to do it and so that was fine and they're not gonna get hung up on. Is it green salad or whatever all right. We'll get hung up either. Tell me a little more about these salads. So what is snicker salad. So basically snicker salad is you cut up snicker bars and you mix it with apple. Sometimes people use bananas. You could use pineapple in then you mix it with cool with and putting like a box of instant vanilla pudding that you whisked together with cool win so those are basically the salad dressings. Cool whip and pudding exactly. That's the dressing. It fits the definition. What are some other classic midwestern salads. So i think they fall into two categories. There's sweet in the savory so things like cookie salads snickers salad sometimes they have cottage cheese them those all the sweet ones and then savory can be things like waldorf salad or cucumber salad which is usually made with sour credence very creamy. There's one that i love. It's called piggly-wiggly salad. At least that's what we call it in wisconsin it's like broccoli salad with Bacon cheese and a sweet sour addressing on popcorn salad pea salad. The sweet ones are made with cool whip and maybe cream cheese and then the savory ones are usually more manny's based i want to talk about the popcorn salad because molly who has a show on the food network. She did popcorn salad on her show. A couple of months ago and just got blasted like the whole country. I think was confused. And i think they thought that she made it up but it sounds like it's a thing right thing and i. I think it could go different ways. My favorite version is similar to the broccoli solid with bacon and cheese and green onions. And it's with a manny's dressing and it's delicious. I think people in the mid west don't have boo'd snobbery about things like miracle whip and mayonnaise. They embrace it. Doesn't the popcorn get soggy. When you mix it up with the mayonnaise he does. You have to exit For serving and that's not necessarily a bad thing that it starts to soften. Have you ever heard of martina. Mcbride's fluffed salad that she grew up with. It's a jar of craft pimento cheese marshmallows pineapple. God what's the other thing. Oh cool whip of course of course so that sounds very southern with the mental cheese. I didn't grow up with that. I could totally see that happening. Because we make fluff salads in the mid west with cottage cheese or cream. Cheese makes perfect sense to me that they would use pimento cheese just as i was getting over the shock that cool whip and pudding could be salad dressing. Meghan hit me with something else. The jello pretzel salad kind of looks like a desert to an outsider. It seems like a dessert. But you serve it with your main dish. Oh you know yeah you don't serve it at dessert time all of these salads. Are they come out with you. Know the potato salad in the pasta salads. Also at the same time and you have dessert after that you're going to have your pies or your scotch. Roo bars her brownies or cookies. These are not served as desserts. There served as side dishes with the main meal. So you would have snicker salad with dinner. It's like if you look at a plate. You're gonna have your ham sandwich. You know your baked ham on a bun your pile of potato salad. You're gonna have some you know pickles in black olives in your pilot cheese crackers in your snicker saudis right there. I love this all right. We've established at mid westerners like to put marshmallows and jello into their salads. But wait until you hear what martina mcbride's family likes to put between two slices of bread when we come back. North carolina food writer sherry castle will join the show to tell us more about this mystery sandwich but first she waits in on the definition of salad salad was a combination of foods that were not cooked together. And that's the best. I've ever come up with all salad. That means everything in nothing. So what are a couple of crazy salads. From the south there is one that looks so bad it takes my breath away everytime but yet is good. You diced tomatoes and put them in a bowl in you crumble salting crackers and a little mayo and salt pepper to combine all of that as some people put a little diced boiled eggs. Some people don't but it's called cracker salad that it is absolutely delicious and looks like holy hill. We'll be right back. I've been doing this. Podcast for five years and i am shocked how people choose pizza for their last meal. Everybody loves pizza. And if you're home cooked you have to get an pizza oven. I got my pizza oven about three years ago. And it is honestly what if my prized possessions as the world's first portable pellet pizza oven it was created in two thousand twelve husband and wife team and it allows you to make restaurant quality freakishly delicious. Flame cooked pizza in. It's little as sixty seconds. Odi pizza ovens can get about twice as hot as your home of in order to get that chewy cross with the bubbles and the blistering char marks. You need that heat. There are three kinds of pizza ovens in two different sizes so i have the wood pellet pizza oven. There's also a gas powered pizza oven and a multi fuel pizza oven and as a longtime owner of a pizza oven. Message me on instagram. I can tell you the virtues of each one and help you make your decision and if you already have a new pizza oven this saturday. September eighteenth is day you can go to uni dot com slash your last meal register. How many pizzas.

"Be one martina theresa. Thank you so much for joining us on the broadcast tonight. Thanks for having us. I'm going to ask you before we jump into conversation properly For anyone who hasn't seen you to speak as double act or hasn't worked with either of you can just give us a little bit of an introduction. How did you get into product. And what are you doing. These days Martina why don't you go. I actually. I started out in the nineties looking at two. How can from design and innovation background. How we make the internet more people friendly and really karrada through to looking at. How do you create the invasion practices in organizations whether that's an integral realizations in sees and design agencies to reinvent. How do we create at a products for people. Had we solve interesting problems at viable problems. People and i found what was really interesting is the question of how do we saw the problems. Outside of those practices in the organization to actually set that teams on this practice for success. Business transformation tonight. What about you theresa so started in a slightly different place. I actually started a management consulting and can doing traditional or design operational strategy work but lived in san francisco so you you're kind of required to a startup if you lived there at that point in time so wounded several nights actually where i was introduced to product and started applying practices a moving into those roles and as i finished my time in ups i realized there was this opportunity to put the two parts of my career together and i felt like these these different practices. We're gonna have a lot of applicability with bigger companies but only if you also look at as martinez said the kind of the ecosystem that surrounded the teams. And so i have for a number of years now either led or supported different companies. Who are going through these transformations and bringing these practices into their kind of core and martina. I know you. And i have both worked either at or with some very big challenging companies although we never overlapped it any of them at the same time and When we first got to talking do something that about this approach. That really made me want to learn more. And it's this whole thing around what. I work with a lot of products people. They all have the same That same frustration times of. I can't get anything done you know. Is it me do. I suck at my job war. Is it the environment. That's the problem. So how do i know how to. What are the the common challenges. How do i recognize. If i'm not very good and wars interest imposter syndrome or is it just. This environment is set up so that nobody could really succeed question actually and working with different organizations what we often see as when we starts discovery to look at how teens working today what we seize there right Managers and their teams trying to do the right thing by. They're not quite seeing the icing. The results that they would expect from the work. They're giving our. We're often seeing as things like the organizations silage rate decisions get made before our part teams get involved in terms of wash. It be made or that. Don't have the capability to reiterate the way towards a better outcome with that often. We also see really management off outputs looking at their. I look at success by delivering on time and on budget and and not have we delivered to the customer into the organization. So you call this a kind of operating model and what encompasses that operating model that the rules by which company afraid i guess like what does that cover. Yes so that's one of those phrases that gets thrown around a lot. Glad you asked for us is how do teams come together to collaborate across functions. So there's a structural element to the operating model..

The History of Spanish Africa

"I say that there are parts of spain and africa. I'm not trying to be tricky and play with words. I'm not saying that. Spain used to have colonies in africa. Although that's true. I'm also not trying to define the canary islands. Which are part of spain off the coast of africa as being in africa. I mean in the most literal sense possible. That part of spain is in africa. There are two very small spanish cities located on the peninsula which are on the african mainland ordering morocco and malia and their very existence as you probably would expect are due to historical quirks happenstance due to geography. Spain has always had a close relationship with africa finishes based in carthage in. What is today. Tunisia established settlements on the spanish coast. The roman province of hispania was part of a greater empire that included all of north africa. Which bordered the mediterranean after the roman empire fell islamic moors from north africa conquered and controlled spain for over seven hundred years. So there's always been a back and forth between north africa in the peninsula and malia both spanish territories in africa have different yet similar histories despite being about one hundred and thirty miles apart from each other. Sita is located directly across the sea from gibraltar. So if you ever want stump someone asks them. What country lies. Directly south of gibraltar and what country lies. North of gibraltar. answer is the same. Spain is on both ends. Sierra makes the counterpart to gibraltar for the pillars of hercules which the ancient names of the two promontories which guarded the strait of gibraltar. As with most everything in the region it has an ancient history. Carthage martina and numidians all control the area. Before the romans the you me add caliphate controlled it for centuries when the caliphate of cordoba fell in ten thirty one it was then passed between various north african kingdoms with support from various kingdoms in the iberian peninsula.

"Here is the only time that we can actually create an impact on something. Cities are made a contract. They the the notion of time and we look at the past and we think about the fees that we have because things we've experienced in the past fact nothing has changed. We are in the same spot as we were. Before we've just i guess niro the neuroscience component of it we've embedded this memory of an event that may not pain fortuitous for us. Can we unwind this and hand learn these things. What are some of the mechanisms and the tools that you suggest using when people are really suffering like this. Yes so first of all i wanted to come back for a moment to catch on the self awareness because suffering for people is mostly just thinking about themselves and trying to understand why certain things are happening to them or who the are in about their interactions with other folks so on a physical intelligence level. We actually go into a self awareness where you are starting to experience yourself and we teach We would teach an approach where you start connecting with your center and this is where you're starting to really fundamentally understand who you are but that is actually diversion of you that if you will in lack of a better way of describing it is almost like void of this conditioning and all of these different patterns fears and pains and all of these things that we've accumulated as coking strategies throughout our life because of needing to avoid pain or deal with very unfortunate circumstances as you say. Go through this process of centering. We gain access to the place that allows us to first and foremost see and understand these patterns but also to gain. It's a process of gaining control in gaining access to the pants in order to change them to break them. And this is a very very powerful process. Where you're able to really address conditions like people being depressed people being in fear or anxiety of different types of of Things that are happened that are embedded in their subconscious. That sometimes don't even know where they come from a what this is all about so the whole process. And that's why call it. Also self-awareness is willing bringing that up to the surface. Let you understand what is actually impacting you and allow to to move it outside of your and really improve the quality of your life that way because you're no longer bogged down with a negative thinking with the fear with the anxiety you let all of this girl and what remains is actually a very pleasant every joyful state of being an x. y. iowa's refer to it as you're increasing your quality of your life in in ways that you can even imagine a at this point in time is even possible a couple of things that have come at for this family that i'm thinking about you know when you get the boot goosebumps on your arms and you just have a tingling and you have a sense when i think about physical intelligence. I think about intuition. What part does intuition play in physical intelligence and reading your body signals okay so is leading body signals..

What it Means to be "AI Ready" - with Matthew Mattina

"This is Daniel Magellan. You're listening to the and podcast. We speak this week on the topic of. Readiness. What is it look like to truly be ready as an enterprise if you're a consultant, you're selling into enterprises and you want to build a success wave. This client stands in what might need to be worked on or if you are an AI champion within an enterprise, you want to get an understanding of where do we stand how ready are we should be an awfully helpful episode our guest. This Week is Matthew Martina who's the head of The machine learning research lab, A. R. M. A. R. Ramsey multibillion dollar semiconductor and software development company wholly owned by Softbank Softbank One of the biggest venture funds in the world based out in. Japan, and Matthew speaks to us about his criteria and his way of thinking through with Ai Readiness looks like in an enterprise again, if you WANNA a checklist to list of features away to assess take view on your own company or that of your clients. I think at this episode should be awfully helpful. If you're just getting started with deploying a, we have a free guide called beginning with Ai. It's special guy for non technical professional. So if you do not have a technical background, but you still want to understand what is it realistically look like to deploy artificial intelligence were the key factors to understand for a adoption. If you're not the person writing code, you're more focused on the business strategy side. Of things then you'll WANNA download that free pdf brief it's an e. m. e. R. J. dot com slash B e g, and then the number one. So bg like beginning and then the number one that's RJ DOT COM slash bg one that pdf should give you some extra details to layer on top of some of the insights that Matthew provides for us here today. So further ado this is Matthew mcconaughey with arm on the and business podcast So I'll kind of dive in first here on this topic of Ai Readiness and ask you about what you consider to be sort of the core components, the core aspects of Iranian s within the enterprise obviously a lot of moving parts here what comes to mind for you? Yeah. That's a good question I think. One of the core questions is one that I think people sometimes miss with respect to a I is. Now there's the problem that you're trying to solve. Of course, understanding that from the get go is key in pretty much any scientific or engineering discipline, but then with Ai. Knowing how your machine learning or a model actually going to be deployed. So what is that model gonNA run on in the field as it can run on a some kind of a big server in a cloud data center somewhere with no terabytes of memory and an of GPS and processors, or is that model ultimately going to be deployed on some kind of you know very constrained embedded device say you know in a in a o not censor or mobile phone or a car and everything in between? So think what we sometimes see is that a model will be developed by a data scientist or or. application will be developed without a good understanding deployment and where that gets prickly as you've developed this model, it uses you know. Fifty gigabytes of memory and then Lo and behold actually want to deploy it on a constrained device that has you know two hundred and fifty six kilobytes of memory, and now you need to do some surgery. Got It. So readiness here you're talking about you know not only involving the model, but involving sort of what are we going to run it on DC? This is potentially part of the four thought process for companies obviously, not everybody's GonNa have devices. Out in the field, people have security cameras, La- run things on mobile phones you know in in cars or maybe heavy industry the have it on a boat somewhere maybe other folks are just GonNa have stuff up in the cloud but for you, it sounds like maybe that thought process should happen as we're coming up with ideas not sort of after we've developed a great model idea that those have to be married to hardware sort of at the brainstorm phases kind of what you're getting at. That's exactly right as part of the upfront? Planning. Stage of enterprise preparing for a readiness. Yes. Some consideration for. What devices is this actually gonna run on and what are the key characteristics of those devices and and the interesting about it is that like I said, you can build models you know and build ai applications that you know recognize faces and use lots and lots of memory or they can have models at recognize faces and use very little memory. And making that trade off and understanding that that trade off will need to be made between accuracy and memory upfront will save people pain down

"I'm Martina. Abraham's Linga welcome back to NATO I have to be honest with you before we started the show I rarely thought about giving birth my indifference turned to fear and anger when I started to understand more about the American medical system and when I became aware of the Blackburn in crisis specifically like most people I assumed if and when my time came to have a baby, I'd go to the hospital I began to fear for mine and my future children's safety and grew angry at the idea that had have to settle for care that's less than I desire. Deserve. I started to question whether I wanted to have children at all the beautiful thing about my journey with natal is that I learned about an entire community that centers blackburn parents and their babies. I'm now more familiar with a network of midwives, dulas, providers, and healers who affirm the dignity and beauty in black breathing and intimately value black-eyed. Due to the history of anti-black blackness in the obstetrics and gynecology field. Much of their work happens outside of hospital I'd seen photos and videos of women all white giving birth in pools and at home. I assume all hippy dippy white people ship turns out. I was very wrong. In this episode, we leave the hospital and step into the world of home. Births. We also dive into the work of Dulas, like Charlie, Louis anderly the owner of Brooklyn based practice nor shing seats Dula. To begin to understand the role dualist play in pregnancy and childbirth. Let's start first with the story of Alexis Him. Some Alexi I am a Smith AC- native where my fiance and I live currently right now I'm training to become a Hamburg worker and I'm proud to say the coast model and this is my natal story. So that was pregnant was extremely interesting is so aware because. I keep up period Alabama foul and I'm looking at it like okay. Says on today's late this is not normal like mockery combs all the time in the night before at noticed the The second day late I was drinking I was having fun. Don't think I will up just like, okay. Today's is enough women is so I went to dollar tree The dollars as at the the tests that you put a little drop singing in wait for the line changes to it. So I dropped the little year in air in the I got one lot I'll say, okay, I'm not pregnant at this point I'm convinced that there is no baby in there. I'm in the one line was just mother -cation. I'm not pregnant sats to those once I got the one line I was the instructions clearly say that you have to wait I think about three minutes once I felt they line I was like, okay. Throw it away. So two more days game. And I'm like, okay. Until my boyfriend at the time like, okay four days is enough. I'm usually on copy now something is not right whale. I couldn't say that this was like something in my body changing or anything of that nature because I knew what took place prior to me semi period but also needed took a plan B. in our secure. This was everything that was a Mama. So. On the fourth day are caught. Another just like is not here. He's like you can come to my job stopping at apprentice in you can come here to take it I'm like, okay. Cool outcome there to do this. So I went into the restroom appeared on the State Ama- body like. It almost showdown at started shaking him. So like all my guy, it says positive if this point I'm scared I'm crying he was like you know go ahead and take the second one is at the second test in it said the same thing. So once I realized that he really decide positive I'm just like, what are we going to do? What do you mean we gotta do you know we're gonNA. Have a baby like it's Okay Hook. He gave me a hug AMC that was the in Twenty Sixteen Alexis was twenty three and still figuring out what you wanted to do in life. She was young and just having fun with her friends and now Fiance Cortez babies and parenthood weren't even a real thought even though she made up her mind Alexis didn't feel ready to share the news with her family little. Did she know they were already in on the secret? The funny thing about the stories that my sister knew that I was pregnant before I'd eat in that because. She was snooping garbage game. In those tested I thought were negative were actually reading positive, but I didn't wait for them to finish position. So how long they home to retrieve the man the garbage gain in Norberto they were definitely positive days. So they had sports as total. They revealed that I was pregnant and I didn't even know I can remember going at you mom if this. Already tell. In I'm just the one at the table this like awkwardly trying to not eat the. 'CAUSE I didn't want my mom to now that I was pregnant at the moment. I want to give her time. Alexis needed time to she hadn't fully wrapped her mind around what it meant to be pregnant. She recently started working as a receptionist choices a reproductive health services clinic choices provides everything from abortion to HIV, testing services to midwifery care. Alexis had options. So yeah. I had the choice to continue on my pregnancy abortion is something that I do think that it's easy choice I'm pro-choice. So you know but I knew my situation that it wasn't GonNa be something that I wanted to do basically because my boyfriend at the time we have been together for a while in knew that he wanted to Kate I was associated but I knew as speaking about abortion wasn't any wasn't a topic for us. actually when I told him, he was like on with whatever you want and I'm just like Ricky Ready.

So I'm I'm hoping that he's Okay I haven't heard anything since January either. the bad news just kept coming as a few days after that one Martina Poacher underwent yet another knee surgery after the previous procedure was unsuccessful. Just recently stated that he's begun slowly re acclimating himself to the tennis court. Once again. This is just the last couple of weeks. Yeah. That's to hear about Walmart being but esther is an absolute lack of the sport. I don't really think she gets the the the amount than do that she should be. Layers. By like five hundred state matches without almost. Like years. Absolute legend She deserves all this lowers possibly get. and also conversely I feel like Walmart game. She he his almost underachieve like e e should he also did a lot of flowers but Injuries. Yeah every time he really starts to get on a roll and starts plans to get back into the top ten like here comes into the freak injury. So yeah, really unfortunate. It's crazy but he he always manages to find his way back into the top ten and back you know making deep runs in the slams in in in winning title. So it's kind of amazing to see him being able to bounce back similar times I mean he obviously was supported the sport because we seem people who have gone through last Mike give it up and he just keeps doing his best to come back again it's gotta be super. duper difficult frustrating. Definitely. We discussed on our pre Australian Open episode that Robert Farah had been provisionally suspended on a doping charge. Short. Time later, he saw that suspension lifted as it was determined that he bears no fault or negligence would be allowed to compete again immediately. Of, course competition ended soon after but he's been very active actively thirst trapping on instagram der Rona for which I am. Very thankful. We. All Know Cedric Cubans trying all of those instagrams Lissette, a meal blast like that Yes i. Yeah, I mean I'm sure he knows they. Let me move on? Roger Federer also had yet another knee operation. This past spring he planned to be up to the French Open, but it turns out. This might have been the best time for him to have such a procedure. So yeah. He's I. I saw some stuff where he since stated data like he doesn't really know. What's going to happen next as far as is concerned right now. Yeah I was I. was that he picked the exact right time disappear. Yeah. He did for sure you know he had not coming bed. Yeah. This is a great time. So if he does come back, it's you know it's not like you superior behind what everybody else is dying but. Get his ranking and stuff will still be pretty secure. So. Obviously. Back in his thirty ninth birthday the other day. So you know happy belated or whatever. Yeah, I guess up. Have you heard about him being like more more injured than what he lets us know. I didn't really it was. It was like some sort of a quote where he said something to the effect of he wasn't sure if he would be back like he was he just wasn't sure right now. Like. He wasn't sure if he's coming back at all that's that's what I read. I. Don't know was voted the way I would. Scream. Scream but I I mean I could buy it because you know spending all this time at home with his family and his wife and kids and everything. And to have achieved everything that he's achieved, I don't know if I'd come back either.

The next topic are at the House series. Many of us are unsure of how to turn our pain and our raid into protests. But every day we survive racism. Sexism Assad Ginny Homophobia Islamophobia trans-phobia a really never ends so this week. We're going to remind ourselves who we are in how it's done.

Whatever they are right now are valid and justified. You do not need to explain the way you do not need to defend them with stats or logic or examples. Take that energy in. Pour it into our community. Here are a few ways you can do. I find a grassroots or mutual aid organization in your local area there organizing and they're making sure that the community's needs are met every day and they can use our support whether it's financially or with our time if you feel called to protest that is great but you do not need to be in the street to be a part of the movement and do movement work making 'cause providing childcare feeding protesters fundraising doing research securing meeting locations. The list of things to be done. It's really never ending. And it takes many hands to make these networks run second. Being black does not absolve from the need to study to do the work to recognize on pack unlearn and dismantle the white supremacy in imperialism in ourselves. No one who goes up in a society like ours is free from it. Oh and it's important to study the movement before us because that will help inform our objectives and our next steps now so we really want to be about it. We have to start with us

"Me finish the first performance. I was like coming down off a high. How so nervous but I was really excited the same time but when it was done and it was over with and they started talking to me. I was like okay. I feel a lot better now. Like this is not as nerve wracking as I thought it was. GonNa be like. They're not scary. I don't know why I was freaking out so much but I do remember them. Picking up on like China change it immediately and they were picking up like a different key for Martina Soprano in like messing around the lyrics in the chorus and thinking about something more mature for the verses because Martinez wanted to be you know for something for her to sing so she wanted to make the verses more from her point of life them changing. The song was completely fine with me because as a songwriter pitching to artist. It's not gonNA be your song so you always have to think about what the artists want to do with it. So I got paired with esther to be my producer for the song and I was really excited to work with esther because you know it was a girl song so it make complete sense. Because she's a girl I'm a girl and you know we're writing about girls like me. So Esther changed the verses. She wanted to make them more mature for Martina. So originally my verses were kind of talking about like from a younger person's point of life so esther wanted to change the verses to make it something that Martina could sing and she said maybe we should make this something like a mother to daughter letter like in a way for a mother how she would write a letter to her daughter. How a mother would give advice to a daughter. Your mom give you. She's always telling me all the time like yourself like it's okay. I mean I think we need to put that in their mother's mother's letter to our daughter but it also could be for any mature woman that would want to give advice to younger girls. Come at it from a different angle and have more of a mature way of saying you know how to be useful. We'll just change them is or some news to us and we the lyric that esther put in there that I thought was really cute. Was your good as gold. That was just such esther thing saw like you know I think hugh I like it so that second performance when it finally rolled around. I was just so excited broken and a par.

"I really love teenage daughters. Because I feel like it's the most personal song that I've ever written when I sing it. I'm really telling that story of that day. And also just what? It's like to be a mom to a teenage daughter. Psych. One Minute you're everything to them and seemingly in the blink of an eye you're not cool anymore and that songs to me is always going to be very special and very personal. My experience on Song Land was amazing. New Shane a little bit from Nashville. He's a songwriter. Lives a here in Nashville. Obviously and so. It was really comforting. Have a familiar face on the show. Somebody that I knew and it spent time with. I also really good friends with Dave Stewart. One of the producers so having him there was was a comfort zone for me to and Ryan. I've just always looked up to. I mean as an artist as a producer as a songwriter. He's just always been somebody that I've looked to as an example really but esther I met for the first time and she could not be warmer or more. Generous just was really welcoming and cool. And so you walk into a situation where you're sitting with three great producers and songwriters and it can be a little bit intimidating and in no time at all. I just felt really comfortable. So I think not only esther shine and Ryan but also just everybody on that show is so generous of spirit. These make really welcome and comfortable and is a fun show to do.

"I'm Regina McBride. I am recording artist. A record producer and a songwriter. I grew up singing in a country cover band and I grew up listening to people like Linda Ronstadt and just artists. That really chirp. It'd songs more than they wrote songs. So for most of my career. I was more of an interpreter of song and for the longest time. I really just relied on these amazing songwriters that we have in Nashville and the way that I really got started. Songwriting was through. This group is actually two brothers called the Warren Brothers Brett and Brad. Warren took them out on the road with me as an opening act and they just kept bugging me right with them and I was like. I don't really care about writing songs that much. And so then. They came to me with this idea. They had for a song called anyway. 'cause I was making a record at the time and they had some of the chorus and I was like I love that. Yeah I'll definitely cut that. Just go and finish it for me and I'll cut it and they're like no no no you need to finish it with us. I don't know why they did that. Actually Looking back. It was a very generous thing for them to do. Especially since I had already said that I would cut the song but they insisted that I write it with them so we got an a locker room at some venue and knocked it out in about. I don't know maybe thirty minutes and it was really cool because I had never been enamored with songwriting until I was able to. Really contribute to a song and feel like Oh these are some of my ideas and and I was able to of shape it into a song that sounded like it was right for me so yeah that was really exciting and I went on to write a bunch of other songs with them and other riders. Every song has its own story but that was definitely the first thing that I cut. That had a hand in so I was riding with these two guys that I write with a lot Brad and Brett Warren uncle teenage daughters. We have a little writer's room here at blackbird studio and I was sitting on the couch. They had chairs and we were facing each other and and the songs started out as a totally different idea. I think we were writing about some serious subject matter. And you know we spent about three hours on it and we just couldn't really ever get anywhere with it and then. I said you know it's a real trip is having teenage daughters like my husband came in at some point and said what's going on with you and Delaney. My daughter and I said nothing. What do you mean? And he goes. Well she's all upset and thinks you hate her and and I'm like Oh my God. I probably told her she couldn't go to a party. You're stay out pastor curfew or something right. It was it to mean nothing that big of a deal but to her it was very dramatic and and so. I was telling the guys about that the Warren Brothers about that story and I was just saying it's so crazy because like one minute you come in the door. And they're running across the room to Hug. You hear the center of their universe and then in the blink of an eye it just changes you know they they become their own people and start pushing boundaries and all. The things are supposed to do teenagers and I think Brett said that's what we should write about. Let's just right about that. You're on your mind you're thinking about it. You just said to major ideas of the song so sometimes it's just like landing on the right idea that you're inspired by or something that's marrying what's going on in your real life. We had that first line. I ain't complaining but I'm tired so I'm just saying what I think. And if I'm being honest and honestly I think I need a drink. We had that line for the other song but when we came up with teenage daughters idea I was like well. That first line still works. Let's just keep that and build off that so brad is playing.

"Thank you so much for doing. This is an absolute treat to have you come and yeah in very strange circumstances obviously for everybody in the world not just the tennis world. You're joining us from California. I believe how how things over there. How has lockdown? How you coping the situation and the lack of tennis in La Lives. Well I would say over all I'm really proud of my three teenagers at a time. When teenagers want to distance themselves from their parents. They've accepted what has to be done. I feel like California in the mayor of Los Angeles I live. We live in Los Angeles. So we've had some leadership both at the state level and and at the city level that has been really strong very consistent and I think that's one of the reasons why Are Part of the United States is actually done much better than expected in pleased that the generation who the order to stay at home. It's really counterintuitive to what they want but There's been a lot of acceptance in I can tell you as a homeowner sixteen years ago bought up property with a private tennis court. Tennis court is one of the reasons why a couple of us in the family have kept better sanity. How much you missing professional tennis right now? Well you know I missed Indian. Wells would have been an easy drive. I missed that one. The most I will tell you because of the business of my home life regardless of a pandemic or even if I'm just driving my three kids around and The the level of detail that I would follow the tour from week to week is not as detailed as it would be like when I worked for ESPN at Melbourne and maybe look the weeks leading up to Melbourne. I knew what was going on in the lead up tournament so for me personally. I haven't missed it that much but we haven't yet gone past one of the tournaments. I think would impact us the most which would be say for for me. Roland. Garros Wimbledon. I mean I thought the tennis will did a great job of I mean it was tough call for Indian Wells. I remember that Sunday night when it was called It took everybody by little bit by surprise but it just started the domino effect of what this virus in the effects on the world sports It just started a series of closures around the world yet studying to look like a very pristine cooled by by that tournament. Looking at your Your social media. You look like you've taken the opportunity during lockdown to have the most neatly and cleanly arranged trophy show in all of Iraq in Pam. Yeah one of my first during lockdown one of the first things I was thinking. Well little things can I post What content would be interesting and I thought all right well. My mantle pretentious fans would be interesting to see The the major championship doubles trophies. Most support try one with Martina. There was a US Open with a net. Pashas vary of there was some Fed Cup stuff. There was recognition of our Grand Slam doubles year as well as the year. I got the finals of US. Open in singles at Sixteen. So I thought it was kind of a fun tour and I guess most of the stuff I posted that one had the most views in. I think it just shows you how much people want to see one way or another or or touch any way major tennis. He absolutely in all of these things that that you just mentioned there. I I really want to talk about. I in first and foremost your your partnership with Martina Navratilova. Seventy four doubles titles together including Twenty Grand Slams. You're you're still the most successful women's doubles partnership of all time. What what made you such a great partnership the too well. I think there are a lot of things I think when you look at how we played our singles The style of play with serve volley back in the eighties. That was kind of. That's how you play doubles back then too so it was really Our our singles games translated into being great doubles players. Naturally the lefty righty combination. If you look in tennis history whether it's nukem Roach whether it's the Brian twins whether it's McEnroe Fleming There's a lot of great Lefty righty doubles teams. I just think you know the choice of who serves the sun's tougher righty. There's just a lot of things that are beneficial to having a lefty righty Our personalities you don't have a partnership that long if your personalities don't gel well We enjoyed each other Our senses of humor clicked in. There are a lot of those matches through the years where we would play after. Martina was the featured match at night So we played and we had to wait late night tennis So if you didn't enjoy each other and our coaches got along. Well obviously we had teams. That were much smaller back then. My team was generally just one Martino. It's one of the first that brought in teams of more than one But our team's got along well and so it just led to who knew that January eighty-one with lead to what it ended up leading to it was I think ultimately nineteen eighty that Martina. Kool G to US could be your your partner partner. What do you remember about that? Phone call was at Deer Creek Country Club in Deerfield Beach Florida having a late practice and I'm a member. Lee Jackson longtime referee for the tour and She came out and You know years and years before anyone has self owner yet said Martinez on the phone and I mean whoever is practicing with the it was the practice was abandoned Iran in got it got on the phone. And W T tour office and You know she asked me. She doesn't mix her words. She didn't learn a lot of pleasantries. Just asked me if I had that commitment to doubles partner for the next year and I said no I did not. I had just the. Us Open just a month prior. I'd gotten into the finals with Betty Stove in Betty Stove his last tournament. And we lost Billie Jean King and Martinez. I think it was six six or five and five and I think that was probably the last indicator. Martina needed that. She she she was looking for. A younger partner was starting. Her career could play for a period of time and so it was obvious it. I didn't even have to break commitment. Thank God because if I'd had a commitment to somebody I mean that would have been a tough a tough one to pass on playing doubles with Martina. So I'm glad it worked out that I didn't have a commitment to a partner confessed to a tip off from for Mary Carillo but she has suggested that that I ask you about asking Martina to sign a cocktail Napkin to seal to seal team together forever. Yeah well we had already been together a long time because we we. We went through a stage at think Springtime of eighty four. We lost in the tournament of Champions in Orlando. We didn't lose again for over two years so I think it was. One hundred nine straight matches When we hit a one hundred wins and it was in Eastbourne so the tournament director George. Tendon threw a party for us that night. And we were celebrating To to the history of tennis no one can remember doubles team ever hitting one hundred wins in a row so A I decided to take that moment. I wrote a contract on a on a peeper. Napping it says I'M MARTINA NAVRATILOVA. Promise always to play doubles with Pam. Shriver and I had a witness line. The George Hendon was signed in as I stood up to give the toast and give the contract Martinez in my head ended up in a lamp shade so it was kind of like it was funny and it was. I have that I have. I still have that cocktail napkins somewhere. But it's back in Baltimore. My hometown Collecting dust but will not be thrown out. One hundred nine matches is is truly extraordinary April nine hundred ninety three to July one thousand nine hundred five did you did you feel. Invincible is a team. Well a lot of those matches we went into the matches knowing we were going to win them. But there was a handful that were incredibly dicey and I remember one in particular that was Right in the middle while it was about win number seventy five and it was in Madison Square Garden against our longtime rival. They were generally the number two team behind us. For many of those years Souckova Elena Sakaba Claudia. Coda kill and we came down to a tiebreak in the final set and I remember it was five. All it was late in the tie-break whenever I was returning and Martina just said return it low and I'm going to go and I'm like yes ma'am you know like you WanNa. That was great. It was like a plan now. Of course then you still have to execute but I remember as soon as I hit the return like that's going to be a low. It was a good return. Sheet timed or poach perfectly. Put It away and then we won the next point on serve so that was the hairiest moments that was when we came within two points of losing. But other than that. I don't remember match where we were like. Matchpoints down we. We won a lot of those matches during that streak in

Martina Castro on Bilingual Imposter Syndrome

"When you grew up speaking Spanish yet like my official first language is Spanish so three year old. Martina only spoke Spanish at home then the moment I entered preschool. My mother realized that I was struggling. Like in just to understand and she freaked out and and put me in front of the television and I learned English with Minnie and Mickey Mouse and cartoons in the morning and quickly through kindergarten became more fluent in English. And then it was my and people ask me and I feel way more fluent. My native language is English for sure. 'cause he's something else about it. Yeah which is I think is important to say I am not so emotionally fraught. Be To me too. And that's what I wanna get across because it's it sounds like okay. Let's wrap it up with a bow Martinez bilingual not true. I make these minor. Mistakes that throw people off. Wait a second. They're minor insofar as an example the subjunctive every once in a while. I'll just say it when I'm not supposed to or or or miss it when I shouldn't and Otherwise perfect right and then all of a sudden I I don't say the subjunctive right and so native speakers will be like. Oh well that's weird But it's it's so small that they don't correct me and therefore I have now fully ingrained these errors in my brain and I know that I will go out in the world and especially formal letters on email or I'll go out in the world and speak in public. I know I'm GonNa make these mistakes and I feel like an impostor you know. I'm not fully bilingual. I can I can never proof-read fully fully a script. I would prefer to have a professional translator proofread it. I'm making a living off of by being bilingual. And so it's a huge imposter syndrome contributor for me but I think it's so important to say this out loud every time I do. There's someone especially if I'm on stage speaking for an audience. There's always someone out there who feels identified with me because the language is such an a barrier but also a door to to this part of yourself and how dare we re remove that for someone. Because it's it's just not. It's just unfair that we've had to grow up with that this feeling that we don't belong if we don't speak well enough or you know somehow we can only belong if we can fake the accent or we can fake being that person you know like. I. It's been apart. It's been a theme of my entire life. It's my responsibility to go out and represent the people like us that are not fully one or fully the other that live in this middle space. This is what it is to be bilingual. Truly it means you don't always understand everything. There's always something you're missing. You're constantly code switching and you're never fully one or the other and that's awesome. That's the thing I want to get to where I'm trying to I. Want to be a proponent of that because I've suffered the other thing my entire life which is owned you better fit in one or the other you know like I was American at school I was Uruguayan at home I was. You know it's just. It was a whole congressman. Yeah constant it causes you to.

Storyteller Extraordinaire Martina Castro Has Her Own Exceptional Story

"Martina Castro is proof of what is possible. When you just start doing the thing you love. She's the CEO and founder of only media which she calls a globally minded podcast production company. Shell so co founded and produced the Ambiente. Npr's I ever spanish-language narrative journalism audio show throughout Martinez has challenged herself to grow as a storyteller and digital media leader. Earning respect from colleagues and contracts with big names like the popular dueling APP and the influential Ted Speaker series in short. She's doing what she loves doing it her way. Martina thank you so much for being here. It is a great honor a great honor. I'm like John. I was looking through your your your your roster I mean goodness you interviewed the lowest where I'm going to be on this podcast. This is this is. This is a highlight. You're a digital audio queen. You talked to a very high standard. So that signed off on that is it then. Stranger totally normal to be on someone else's podcast completely strange. I mean I still get a little like flustered and nervous but I think it's important to know what it feels like to be on the side otherwise you have zero sympathy for the people you you go out in an interview and I think it makes me more empathetic storyteller you start as an Internet. Npr That's your entree into all of this. Yeah I knew I needed to get an internship. I was over achiever in school and so I knew I had to follow the rules. And it's okay. I got to get an internship and so I applied for the internship and I didn't get it the first time I got one in another different radio journalism program and then three days after college ended. I started my internship at NPR and that just kicked everything off. It was really lucky. You realize how lucky you are in the sense that most people don't just stumble into their passion that early in in their career. It's shocking. Maybe I'm just personally envious as someone whose career has taken lots of twists and turns that you started there. But what's so interesting to me about your story. You really love audio in a way that I it took creating this podcast for me to appreciate what that even means right. Oh my goodness it was such a luxury I mean. That was my school I went to I. Everyone asked me of how I learned this and I said on the job I ask you about that because I I to. I don't have a journalism degree so I learned sitting in a newsroom. All of those things there are moments where I like. I wish I had that foundation. Do you ever have that moment? Yes all the time. I wish that I had had a little bit of that foundation. So that it can more confidently enter some rooms Especially in the beginning of my career I think in the beginning it was really really rough to be an outsider but at the same time such a a gift to be in the room looking back at my career it might look like a straight line but I wasn't even sure I wanted to stay in journalism back then and it wasn't because to go do anything else because I wasn't sure look at my internship my NPR enter chip. I mean this is months after I graduated from college I got sick or something and I suffer from migraines and I I had to call in sick and the executive producer at the time who no longer works there brought me and her office and she said look. I don't know if you have what it takes to make it in this industry because this industry is tough and it was it was hard. There were a lot of tough moments and I was starting at the quote unquote top. An impure you know it was. It was the top it was it was the best in if I was. I had to succeed and not mess up that Opportunity. And there's so much pressure that was like many. This isn't for me like I want to have fun doing what I do. I don't WanNa be so exhausted all the time I want have ideas and have them validated by the people around me. And you know there's a million reasons why I probably wasn't being validated. In that time I mean I was really young. Who knows mighty is probably good but I discovered the brand of journalism and storytelling that I wanted to do by chance and just in time meaning what I left. Npr. It was a bold move. I learned so much. I'm so grateful for that opportunity. I hate talking bad about it but I have to be honest. It wasn't the environment for me that was going to make me my best self and it was the beginning of me leaving journalism and I left and went to San Francisco and worked at KLW. And I found my bestself there. Thanks to people who really trusted me to be a leader who trust to figure things out on my own who created a culture of yes and who Inspired Fun and creativity in in a situation where we were also striving for excellence. And that was the beginning of me figuring out that I could actually make a work environment that in my image rather than having a mold myself to a work environment. That wasn't the right fit for

"So so the model actually was a model all of my phd work so it comes from three different studies that have gotten so So what actually done for my hd was created a measure of fraud vulnerability. And I you know just Kelly contest your cell phone and you know bear in mind is the first of its kind. I'd needs a group meant which I mentioned in my thesis so like the model really he is From the research done so it's talking to fraud victims and finding out what they You know kind of feel that that have contributed I was able to then create questions and taking into account certain things Already you know like other you no bodies model a model ability modal oops coming so there. There are different models that have been done. They haven't been tested so took everything into account and I did the scale. Oh and then my scale had five factors one was imple- cvt one was you know compliance was a good one and then like I had vigilance the decision time which will kind of protective factors. Yeah so like a decision time was just how long do you typically like. Do you typically rushing to your decisions or do you take take time to work things out do you envy. Djilas was more about Do you take things at face. Value will do check you know. Check facts by south. You know you you. Somebody who's aware of certain things do you check double check. And and then I had his fifth Fox's which came about through the interviews a lot the victims have told me they you know like first of all. They never thought it would happen to them. 'cause they intelligent person decorative consider themselves intelligent and then a second was that when when they get defrauded like they thought that when crimes committed against them they will be taken care of by the police so a lot of them You know the fact that a belief injustice hostas which encapsulates kind of like believe that other people full scans the stupid but also that there's the safety net choubey defrauded sought like the farewells wilt confidence of bias. It's a fat. Yeah the just will kind of thing that happens to other people and you know things like a perfect. When it happens you would be an an people? Don't always actually understand how difficult it is to prosecute online fraud. And this is something that my colleague. Cassandra Cross who is a really really good researcher in Australia Like wrote about Roy to really good piece of literature on jurisdiction and like people. Don't understand that it's not so easy like US coming in one country and a victim is another country like coup. who gets difficult on all the prejudices around as I dealt with jurisdiction problems in corporate co- Gammel an corporate investigation cases and it was so difficult you know any problems switch jurisdiction that jurisdictions biased new Sweetie Linen Asia a problem that we had to prosecute Asia that was automatically by certainly the time? I'm against Western companies. I'd say jurisdictions huge problem with this huge. Yeah so kind of disbelief like I think You know in in my You know one of my experiments. I gave people a real email from apple and a fake chemo from apple and You know I kind of odd them so like I was measuring in them on my scale but it was also asking them to tell me this is real or fake and I found it actually believe in justice you know like if you have a high belief injustice you who are less able to phishing email and I guess people are less careful. 'cause the thank you wouldn't happen to them and they think if it did the you know criminals the prosecute. It's it's a kind of like maybe he just makes you more secure so you don't need to be careful. I guess I don't know what it is So yeah that's kind of interesting so the modal really kind of notable through that to kind of all of my research that have done to three studies and Yeah so I found that there are factors that influence compliance lines we fraud and then there are facts. Protect you a little bit such as being Gillette and taking some time to decide on things rather than just kind of having impossibility towards Let's do this and then kind of being a little bit more Aware the justice not always served. I'm so the kind of makes you a little bit. Komo careful I guess. And then like I said there are the strategies that people form I found that people specific strategies up-to-date they had the frauded such as they don't on dealer Phone phone. But that doesn't protect you in any other way like it's it's more about delivery here it's not about high was done and then you have people who actually perform really good strategies you know. They are aware of what makes them a bit vulnerable. So they address those vulnerabilities such as the guy who doesn't carry any money in his first so he can lie you confidently. Because he knows he can't say no so he has to. The model was basically about all the research was was kind of trying to visualize all the research that I've found because then with the goal of because I know you've you've spoken to law enforcement and stuff about it. I mean. I think I'm right in saying that. So the goal was to kind of identify the reasons the people fall victim to this to what to try to educate to talk to me because it seems like the I mean I obviously I love used to put it. Seems like this would be more complicated for people to grasp them perhaps would make it easy to get it over. You know. It's not complicated in lots of ways. But it's detailed in its granular and how and given all the cognitive biases people have on the complexity laxity of of scams and how they change. I just wonder if it doesn't seem to be an easy way to get this over our master people you know no and it's not not to nothing I think like I'm working with stocked up in a moment at like we kind of thinking with week. Would maybe implement my be designed scout because I like just just just made it short term veteran you know whether we will get an interesting result so obviously you know I'm hoping someone's GonNa take to make better and make it better but my initial shall idea was that I personally. wasn't aware of scams that much and the reason why wasn't aware Wisconsin's because like when I get a pop up warnings things you know on my computer. I just don't read them you. So how do we make prevention. That would be a little bit more tailor-made so that you find it interesting thing. You know what I was kind of thinking like could you maybe test yourself when my scale and then just just get results in a little bit more impulsive than this could lead need this kind of fraud. Yes you apply that these could lead to this kind of fraud so giving you a little bit more context as to what your honorable to You know and you know we not vulnerable in the same way across different stages of life as well so I I do mention circumstances in my thesis a lot. There are circumstances that make you honorable leaving alone You want to be more open to meeting New People in there for being less scrutinizing award they ask you You know maybe you you breathed a Lotta Burri. People first thing they do is is is maybe go to a psychic and then getting to decisions cycle or the psyche kind of constantly instantly. You know getting in touch with them and stop so so we abominable in different ways across different circumstances and so it's not just this trade. It's not just these things in Age Yeah so but lucky gives you a little bit like my idea was that he will give you a little bit more interesting thing That you could. I mean it's just I'm interrupting because it's absolutely don't get me wrong. This is brilliant. It's just that your your brain is the size of a planet and you can probably think of a better away of over. People are musk because when i read your stuff any of you still further I look deeply into into the papers. Or whether a look at the twitter's that you that you put out the twitter's the tweets that you put. I always think this is. This is genius. Everyone needs to read this. You don't get me wrong. This is not a criticism. I'm more thinking I always get the out there so you will I interrupt. You said see your vision was we'll what mission what was really like. How do we make for permission? And this is why do these tweets As well like a try to make the fon try to kind of dissect them so people can see like you know like fake calms anemia. Fake facebook email or whatever ah I try to dissect them so that people can see on but I kind of like my vision is to make fraud prevention a little bit more sexy you know right now. It's fuck never do this. Don't click. This take time like it's all very authoritarian but I kind of feel people You know find it interesting when you explain things. These people find it interesting when it's about them so really the scale was kind of like okay. Do you want to know what makes you mobile able to throw it just you. You know you could Different from that person like find out what it is you know an end. So it's kind of like he was going from that point of view an you know maybe my vision Down the Road Rhode was that maybe fraud prevention specialist could use it as part of their You know kind of like targeting sort of different You know people that repeatedly tiddly Focus Council. Maybe if somebody repeatedly fall for scams you don't know why You could understand more compliant. Let's work on that the more positive. Let's try more combat so you get more targeted advice as to how to protect yourself so like but yeah I totally agree. It's not easy and it's it's not it's it it adds another level of it is just kind of But that's what academics do they. Don't do stop do complicated. Stop because you have to. So it's kind of like you know maybe somebody will find it interesting and maybe my vision is one day to maybe team up with a really good company. The DOC penetration testing. So maybe you know like when you kind of doing you doing work with the companies to give the scale to pull so you have the Sacramento big data and then maybe do some penetration testing than show people. Okay this is what you did and this could be why you know to kind of explain a little bit more about them because this is you know when it's about you you are more interested to actually find out how that happened. Rather than just kind of beat warnings I guess I absolutely the case and I thank you and I think and this is what I say when I'm talking to them about social engineering scams scams and cons. I about Khan's generally as I always say you should. You should know we will get very granular about this in the mall. No I know I always say things that we look at motivation and like you know. What's what's the thing that they fear? What's the thing that they that they desire? You know what's the thing. They moved towards the the last thing that they give off. And that's what we're going to look. I'M GONNA look at that and to get to that kind of really look inside the types of things that you do and I think people are fascinated by by those few lines that I say because it's like oh I need a one of the things is that and I am telling you that people giving me this feedback all the time. The impression that I got is when a scam artist on a CEO artists and again I'm not trying to be posted about it on a scam. I was talk in the sites when a social engineers talk in the sites dates. They probably studied up as parents person's mind and think about it more than the pace negative themselves and so if you could get the pace and to go someone someone seen that in May soon as you say they know. It's not a horoscope at that point. You know its sniper fire soon as you say that personally very present because they think wow that that that will that would mean something to me so to take your measures and give them that same kind of very detailed former. I think what that would do is is working to pasta weights part. That really is not the kind of horoscope broad brush type of analysis but a very personal one based on a lot of matches. That would work very well. People are fascinated. It's because they don't spend time thinking about who they really are. Not what shoot them away and maybe protect them. In my opinion you know what I found really fascinating as well when I was interviewing fraud victims a lot of them as soon as this comes they changed it traits. You know about people become less impulsive so you know being aware of that may be ahead of the time that they could You can make you vulnerable. Maybe a protective factor you know and there are so many scams when you don't know you've been scanned and do you know like if you shared something on facebook..
