Dog King: Burnt Bun Breakfast
"Today. We find dog king king of the dogs sitting on his throne gazing out at his kingdom out in the streets. The sun was hot and humid. As a pool of drool and the roads were scorched enough to skull the paw humans were bustling around head down headed to work and traffic clogged up all the best walking spots. That was all okay though because the kingdom the alley behind the laundromat was shady and cool as the dirt under a deck and more than that. It was a summer monday which could only mean one thing time for a burnt bun breakfast dog king called spilling too heavy trash bags into the crowd of waiting dogs from the bags. Wrinkly crinkly sides burnt hot dogs and hamburgers and stale buns spilled onto the dirty ground. It was kind of like christmas. If christmas smelled like ketchup and mustard day-old meet burnt bun. Breakfast was their summer monday tradition. Where the dogs gathered all the burnt barbecue thrown out from the weekend before and had themselves a feast. A whole mess of matz had shown up for this one. There was the usual crew of pickles and rambo. And anne plus some lounging. Labs hungry hounds. A beefy boxer boxy beaver and a group of rowdy terriers fresh from a run at the dog park pun breakfast best fist. Crooned pickles the chihuahua. He leapt from his little pink bike basket bed and shook himself awake. Nothing like a good chart burger with the extra black bits for flavor. You don't see this every day. I see these literally every day said rambo. My mom likes to grill all the time. And i get all the one. She messes up. I think sometimes she messes up on purpose. Because i'm her special handsome boy. No way said pickles yes way. I'm totally her special handsome boy. She tells me all the

"I don't think that many people would put him as the solidified closer. I think he's more of a eighth inning or still late. Inning guy eighth-inning probably inning guy. But not a not a closer adam sandler. I think deserves it. He he pitched in all three of the four games against cleveland. Three innings zero earned runs two strikeouts. Honestly i think he does deserve it. He does since coming to the blue jays. You mentioned mark. He's just been fantastic and he. I mean this doesn't really necessarily help his case but he looks like he's extremely into it and you watch those reactions after the game and it's clear that he wants the big You want those big innings for the blue jays. I think you give it to him. I think the way. I remember who i was talking about. I'm said this about somebody earlier on in the season but you give him the closer role until he proves that he can't close and got a big series against the red sox you got i mean even you look at that next homestand. You got oakland you got chicago the the white sox you know there's some good teams coming up that you desperately are going to need your best guys pitching against i mean with liam hendriks on the white sox team or not as he is he was chicago yeah easily chicago i can remember. I knew with oakland for so many years but regardless he like when you're against so many good teams you gotta have your best guys and you know we talk about you. Need your best five in euro. Tation you need your best four against the red sox as a starter you need your best relievers as well. And that's honestly..

"I mean you look at guys in their rotation in the ray. They've had in the second half since it started july. Even going back to the start of june. It's been horrible for them. So you hope the blue jays can take advantage of that you hope they can come out win two of three or excuse me two or four or three or four. Maybe or you know who knows maybe even asleep. But i'm not going to get my hopes up for that but that really changed my perspective. Because i really didn't realize how bad the red sox were doing and again you know last time the red sox the red sox were struggling as well and they came out and you know took both games. I think of that two-game set because one of them was rained out. If i remember correctly bet who knows we will see what happens. Another pitching conundrum for the blue jays is the bullpen. The bullpen has been really good lately. You know we can trash all want for the beginning of the season. But they've improved a lot with the arms they've got even though you do have two games in the series with the bullpen. Putting up some scary numbers. You know you got that brad. Hand blown save in not technically save blown opportunity in the tenth inning of game one you got that the six runs. The bullpen gives up in the second game or third game of this series despite that the bullpen has been pretty good But a lot of people have concerns about jordan romano and rightfully so. He hasn't been himself lately over his last few appearances. Last nine games eight point two innings pitched as an eight point three one era over his last nine games. That's eight earned runs over eight point..

"The season and then he just had a couple of bad outings and then a of good outings but Post the trade deadline and the all star break and so with with ross stripling. I do think that his numbers aren't necessarily a reflection of not being very good. Every start has just been. He's good sometimes. He does struggle sometimes. I mean he. He obviously had those mechanical changes early on in the season but he almost has been a completely different pitcher. Whereas with stephen matt's it's other than his first couple starts whereas era was in the ones. It was fantastic. He just has been mediocre at best. And i mean he's not a bad fifth option. But when you have six options he's probably the odd-man-out and it's a lefty option in the bullpen. I mean there's ryan rookie. And there's tim meza. That's not a bad option. Especially considering stephen ads could be stretched out could give him three two or three maybe four innings if you absolutely need it if you haven't seen an opener a couple months but if you wanted to do that then there's a guy than come out although Yes as bryson is testing. I don't think it's a good idea. I do like the traditional rotation whether it's five or six men however when you have six men. I think that it is going to be stephen acts. That is the odd man out just considering stripling. You're next season and he's shown flashes of being extremely good i. I don't think that you take that guy out of your rotation yes. It's definitely a bit of a gamble..

"Do we like mccain netted bank in a may be like jumped. Hello and welcome one. And i'm your host mark collie as always joined co-hosts person jacob our guys i'm doing good mark another series at home or the jays take it. They win the series now. The only thing. I'm going to be a little bit of a debbie downer here but i think everyone can agree with me as it could have. It should have been a sweep but we'll take three to four getting close to that second wildcard spot. Things are looking up for the blue jays. Right now yeah. They lose the first game in kind of catastrophic catastrophic fashion. They were winning or they tied it to to go into extra innings brad hand comes out of the bullpen and things go downhill from there. You gives up a home run another run and being a five two loss but they come back. They bounced back. They win the next three games of the series. And i think the you know even if the win streak is gone even if that perfect record at home has gone. I still think you've got to be happy with taking three or four. Even if it's a team by cleveland you gotta be happy with that. You can't ask for the blue jays to win. Every single game they still have won seven of the last eight. I don't know i'm pretty happy..

There are people that needs the structure. This is where they bloom in instructor when they know what is their order of the day and the no one wants to come in the know what to expect and preach different.

And when you're facing and yet christianity our new workplace snap into this workplace. Speak people speak to people who work there understand what it's like there. Would it be good for you. Would you feel alive there. And for the managers i will say big. A good manager is understanding what the motivation would be agendas of each individual. You are managing is not one-size-fits-all. The manager has his responsibility. But we mostly harrisonville himselves. Yeah that's really good advice. It's a lot of it's not soul-searching but being honest with yourself and sitting with yourself and really asking those questions. Do i need this kind of environment need that. Do i wanna be do. I work on independent. I love being independent and free. Do i like the structure. I think that's a really good point.

Not to do specific thing that i do but i'm trained on a train psychologist and i'm good and speak up and to something that i've witnessed a lot. Is the information gaps. Women are highly bugged by the fact that he have information gaps. If i don't have enough information that i can't on. I'm not good enough. Have to fill out my permission gaps. This is something that leaks you less in maine. Imen- got those. Are my thoughts like clutter. No those are totally valid interesting. Thought there's a lot you know we could do a whole episode just on that itself. There's a lot to it for sure. A reminded me just a bit with like when it comes to asking for a raise just talking with my friends who are women versus my friends. Who are men when it comes to money and worthiness. I really deserve this race. I ask for it isn't clips. Buff ask for this kind of raise and the attitude sound so very different when i'm having those conversations with my male friends female friends and i think it's all related when it comes to worth and go for it and just do it and believing in yourself and it started by saying the to your girl your baby girl at the up they route and by saying does not be careful. I'll give me careful. No no no no. This is dangerous to let them carry their own stuff and creek evolve their thoughts of their own and have an opinion on things. And your opinion matters. What do you think that's very interesting. What can you do that. Not signaling that the weren't the world is dangerous but the world is interest them. I like that a lot switching gears just a little but of course it still about you and your work at the end of the week you put your feet up. You have a glass of wine. You're feeling really good that it was a great weekend of two and for your work. What happened what does that mean. It's per week. That i feel like nine depends bench. The relationships were the founders. As much as i'm able to deepen the relationships for myself.
"An operating partner at after to venture capital the amazing and wonderful vc fund and. I'm a startup psychologist in practice. Okay so you clearly have your hands full. there's a lot going on your also startup psychologist. You're an operating partner at f- to capital. So what does it mean to be a startup psychologists while startups call. It means that this this title. I gave it to myself as as branding. It's very important to note that. Because i was not giving this. No one taught me how to call to that. That's important in terms of ethics. I'm a social psychologist and being starved psychologist. I referred to myself like that because it makes what. I do a bit clearer but the question that you asked me. What is it that you do is a question that i'm being asked. I think three or four times a day. What is it that you do so. My work is divided into today in my work to and also before i was an operating partner of to when i had my tim diligence my own operation. It was the same but today it's much clear. So i have the pre investment in the post investment on the pre president s meant investment aspect. It's more of the due. Diligence is like the psychological team due diligence. I much rather use the team due diligence frame. It says intimidating. My job is to make sure that this team has what it takes to make it. In in interpreting aerial their skills are complementary their emotional regulation is high than physics. Motivation is high that they have sufficient skills in the team in order to make it that the values in which they follow are similar to the house we as a team follow. And there is general compatibility between us and the team and between the team to themselves obviously to the market About to approach. So that's the pre. The post investment is much more exciting parts. I believe because that's the part where i truly connect with the founders. It's being their first phone call when benchmarking for a new executive in their company equity in salary up to we had a huge fight enough founding team and one of the founders are about to leave the the company so it ranges that extreme. I find myself working. Most of my day with founders. If it's one on one sessions ventilation. Intonation sessions a bit more psychological sessions up until working working on the team structure how they're gonna actual structure of the company should look like in order to support their scale. So really verifies changes and also. I'm working on our team dynamics in the fund in order for us to always be. This must still team super fascinating and for me. Personally i find it very interesting. I studied organizational behavior and development. Just the whole concept of team dynamics and working together and motivation and psychology people all that really interests me so few questions. First of all you said that you gave yourself conduct. You gave yourself the title startup psychologist and for me. And i'm sure a lot of listeners. Who might have might deal with imposter syndrome or feel like who am i. I'm curious just how the experience was for you. Because you're an expert. You're in demand you're growing and flourishing in your career in you gave yourself a name that you didn't necessarily you said i didn't see that before in. Someone taught me how to do that. But that's what i am. So what was it like for you to call yourself a startup psychologists. You're taking a very sensitive spot. Because when i speak to say specifically with social psychologists that are now in the midst of the training that i was a part of in the in the masters success social psychology. One of the questions. That i'm being asked the most is how do you know you have the expertise to do it. How do you know you have what it takes. How could you have the courage to consummate Even a some note..

John one of argentina's newspapers and in two thousand seventeen. He laughed to find rhodesian one of the most innovative examples of digital newspapers in the global south today china will talk about membership human journalism and social empathy and how to measure success of audience participation chine- welcome and thank you for being with us today. Thank you very much thirty for this invitation for having here. I'm regulatory audience of this podcast. So pleasure and a privilege to be thanks. Thank you so much. So i want to start with a personal question. What did you do. Why did you leave a good secure job at an established newspaper to lounge a small new startup. that's a person in question and to make the long story short. I would say i when i was twenty seven year. Old longtime ago any flow very particular path. Down there are a decider graphic. satoru Decided rector innovation director and finally eighteen chief and twenty one is at the company and for years eight chief. I decided to step down And i would say sort of to change the nature of of my challenges. Of course it was a big and beautiful challenge to lead that talented newsroom of almost two hundred people And we work and we do have a lot of fun and success in bringing into the twenty first century Great media brand Born in the nineteenth century But on the other hand today i feel that is also an enormous and also beautiful challenge to create a new media bencher from scratch So to bringing a small but also very talented team That by building this this new media we are trying to answer some essential questions to to our craft journalism and also to me. So how can we acknowledge the the media fatigue And media avoidance phenomenon for example. Or or how can we cover the most pressing social issues we face as society and covered in a different way and probably the most interesting question. A how does this. But equally experience of the twenty first century people's participation can affect journalism. So i would say that the coral of of We are trying to hook like the broadcast. One way or the model per line that was born with us media And he's one of the challenges. Our industry spacey facing. I'm sorry it wasn't short. The the answer but i have two more things to say. There is almost no secure job now. Our industry I think everything is at risk An acknowledging daddy. I think it's a good thing on the other hand. I believe that in the end. I guess That why i step down being there to of great media. Well i guess it has to do a lot with a very personal calling on that I read a sentence which i found very very interesting. What you said. Human journalists can rebuild social empathy. Can you explain to us what it means Yes we believe that the problems we are facing us society. The challenges are very complex and of course Demands complex many times complex solutions and we are not going to find those solutions without an open dialogue between institution politicians and citizens So pariah station. For example. it's it's it's almost the name of the social conversation today at is preventing us to find those solutions. An in-depth sense. i believe. Journalism has an important role in terms of showing Other words helping us understand other opinions For amd we'd take this very seriously advocates axiom. So we been trying sort of new full matz that help how to help us our own To have more empathy with different lives people that lives in a different way of thinking in a different way than myself So it has to do with how we build a more robust set citizenship. That helps that public dialogue to evolve and on find real solutions. Gus dose dilutes might should have at the end semaine back in personal and institutional decisions
Model-Based Offline Reinforcement Learning with Aravind Rajeswaran
"All right. everyone. I am on the line with arvin. Roger swaran arvind is a phd student in machine learning and robotics at the university of washington. Arvin welcome to the tuomo podcasts. Thanks famine federal pleasure. I'm really looking forward to our conversation. Motto based offline reinforcement learning is the topic of research papers called morrell motto based off. Find me enforcement learning. That topic has come up quite a bit over the past year or so It's getting quite popular. And i'm really looking forward to digging into your take but before we do. Tell us about your journey and how you came to work in our l. and robotics chip pretty interesting question my undergraduate background. Actually in something completely different. I was mostly doing big statistic and lucrative like chemical engineering as my formal degrees and i took a machine learning class by professor of in back in india and that kind of transformed my perspective on things that essentially had matt very similar to what is used in statistical it so i was able to pick up on it pretty quickly by the obligations. Seemed like really really cool. So i wanted to maybe fever debate and focus more on machine learning. And so that's how i moved into the bronx field of ai and when it started out i had more of a theoretical inclination ben. I started working with my adviser. Professor shawn kakabadze. Who's like an expert in machine learning theory on be discussing like what might be interesting projects topics to work on or we felt was start matz. If the research decide in machine learning deep learning was largely explanative nature so deep learning was already working really well and the gresh any hard. We understand explain. Why deep learning working enforcement learning. What was interesting is that we actually didn't have very good algorithms things. Were actually not working that ball. And there was a very interesting scope to have like an interplay between teary analogous from both develop new algorithms to break very well and also tried to explain why it is working than gain a more fundamental understanding and that sort of been might be at the joining us electric to show board they. Competitively goodra sauce ended the same time having a theoretical bench to my work. Nice nice and as the large focus of your work been on model base are l. in particular or have you explored a wide variety of topics within the space. I see interesting in model based in fort learning relatively recently the i'm i think about my research at least in the last couple of years has been the central question of. How do we make a. How do we create agents that can solve a diverse set of tasks with a modest amount of expedience but each individual dos and this is of course a very broad question that the number of different fields including multi task learning micro. Learning offline learning. And so on that constitutes space of problems that have been thinking about what you think is really cool approach algorithm to make progress on these domains model based startled so i view model based on. That's providing the mic toolkit to make progress on questions related to multitask turning meta learning offline. Learning got got so maybe the best way to go through this is to start from the beginning And have you kind of explain the. I'm curious the way you explain. Model based rl. And if it's you know the extent to which it'll be different from other explanations we've heard here on the show so let's start there. Yes so. I guess maybe i could try to merge some of from model based on offline learning on. What got me working on this project. I'm hopefully doing that. There may be an explanation for what is model based donal on. If you think about firmament a moment blake questions and computer vision are be the questions. There tend to be much more ambitious and interesting than in traditional reinforcement. Learning for example. The questions to be still asking learning are how can we solve a particular tastic pickup. A particular object with the robot solve a particular game with. Ask me more samples as possible. This is very different. From how people phrase digressions and computer vision for example offs kennedy chanukah detector with ten samples can attain got victor with twenty points. That's just not an interesting question. The questions are the how can i identify. What is the object. An image of thousand categories much more broader in scope and much more ambitious daily. Use a lot of will get to make that happen. Mine goal was to try to emulate that in reinforcement joining us. Now if he start thinking about how can an agent which flows in a very complex A kitchen for example. There are so many things that it can do the cabinets they clean bans the setup dishes and so on the dishwasher on the speed of things that the robot can do so much more diverse than what that means is we need to be able to use the data to extract as much information about the world as possible and i believe models are the we accomplish doctor just given a particular state of the wall some either league and explicit stately things that particular joined configurations of the robot throughout the different objects in the armour richard descriptions such as images and video slater scans of assets points to any potential action that the robot can take how would the world evolving change on if you are able to learn such a model it modern sculptures many of the details that want about the world on on the basis of what we learn. We can then downstream from finding and reasoning in order to accomplish necas of interest. So in my mind to go back to your question what is a model. I believe it is. How would the world respond to any changes be made potentially making the former factions

Welcome to the show. I'm doing good today. Woke up too little snow and get ready for a little arctic blast so should stick around for a while this weekend right. Yeah Yeah So. Dan is out in New Hampshire. And we working have Brent foes on but somehow we he got busy week space ghost coast to coast a shout out to space coast and BRAC and talk show land.

Do genetic ancestry tests know if youre Palestinian? A cautionary tale of race and science
"Welcome welcome to size friction on the tension ritual in. Today's episode is Genomic Science to go to striking story for you of the shocks. You can engage when you take a genetic ancestry tests and the problems are not in your Diana. They are in the science. Oh man so so I want you to make mercury eight to buy. Oh my gosh. So she's an American Palestinian cartoonist illustrator. Leaving in Brooklyn New York and when Shae Shea started to draw well I kind of helped his stop making sense of the world. When I was younger all I wanted to do withdraw from Warwick fantasy characters? who were you know exploring some fantasy world adventuring trying to figure out the meaning of war? Yeah you Matz I. She was an intense keyed. He'd sigh relate to that. I'm not even joking. That was my first comic when I was like thirteen or fourteen trying to figure out the meaning of war yes the law plot. What was really hard? Core rate was trying to figure out the world her family stories. We're helping figure out a self my family. So my my Palestinian side of the family were originally from Ramallah they came to the US in the sixties after the nineteen sixty seven war. And and. That's where my father. My mother my mother is mostly of British and Scottish ancestry and they met in DC and the register and Marguerite was born. She grew up in San Francisco but she understood whole lot about the deep heritage in history. If if family I lived with a lot of my extended family on my father's side and and the constantly I mean I think it's a very Palestinian thing to talk about loss. I'm sorry to say Palestine and talk about what was lost in talk about how it was and things like that so I heard very much about out where we were from and how it was there and everything and there is actually a book. That is a congenial logical history of Ramallah so my family needs to say his in this book. This is actually a book that was done maybe thirty years ago. There's actually a recent effort to update the books so this is kind of a big thing and it's very much a Palestinian thing to try to keep memory alive. It's a need to assure after that. Hey you know we exist who've had the we had this entire history. We're going to write it somewhere. We're going to you know. Put it somewhere. I wish I could've seen Palestine back in the day honestly because it just sounds really chill a nice. I'd like to go okay. Okay so mercury thought. She had a pretty clear idea about her ancestry but then she sped into a test tube. Well first half-brother on her father's side spat into a test tube. He decided on a whim to take a day and I taste and he got the results back in he was just blake. Yeah you might want to take a look at these results. He's her kind of weird. Well we'd in an intriguing conaway. Our understanding ending was that from my Dad's side. We were fully half Palestinian half Arab but these results they suggested something different so so we were just like what so marguerite decided to do an ancestry test to this was back in two thousand sixteen. They went through twenty three and me did the all spit in a tube and she said it off to the company twenty-three May and literally Chino. Even more surprises would be in store for her so the saliva gets to our partner lab. The DNA is extracted from that. and My name Ms Joanna Mountain and I'm senior. Director of research at twenty three and me and previously at Stanford with Joanna also did her PhD and specialized in human evolutionary evolutionary genetics. So when customers sign on with the genetic testing and Analysis Company twenty-three May which is headquartered in Silicon Valley. He's what what happens to this speech sample around a half. A million positions in the DNA are analyzed and we get the genetic variants at those half million positions genetic knitting variant. Now that just means some kind of unique variation in your genomes deny say quance so then twenty three and me use an automated computerized Haraz prices to p different stretches or windows of your day and I and then I compare those two James off a reference group made up of individuals individuals from different populations globally. Now what ethnicities are present or missing from that reference group. That's K. as you'll he'll IDA and and we look at each one of these little windows and we say to which people is this individual most genetically similar and we continue as we stroll along the genome looking and saying well at this point this genome looks very similar to people from say Iberia and then we get a little further down in. Wow it looks similar to people from commoner and even in further down. It looks similar to people from Ireland. So there's a method we have that classifies each little patch of the genome by saying. Is this more similar to people from Ireland Orland or from France and then the algorithm says okay the probability that's from Ireland and appropriately. France in whichever is highest. Is the winner there so then we patch it all together come up with percentages for each individual so it's a multi step process and that's what we present to the customer okay so back back to margarite radium waiting for the results from twenty three and May to land in her inbox and sure enough. I got I got the results back and Some of them made sense. You know I knew enough about my mother's side of the family told me that okay. HALF OF ME is British and Scottish Scottish. Okay cool makes sense what came next made very little sense to her. Other half is going on percent Italian Elian it said thirty five percent Italian and then the rest was Arab Specifically Oh what did it say. Think specifically had said western Western Asian or something they actually tried to give me a breakdown of what regions of Italy it came from but they couldn't actually detect wherein Italy. It came from at all Wade. It'll Italian come from and actually I think is sweet coincidence. Is it true that your husband is Italian. My husband is Italian and I did actually when I got the test I did ask him like do I look talion. He was just like no suddenly just like that. Migrate was possibly thirty percent Italian and only fifteen percent western Asian and north African and canete slightly saving detail that she is Palestinian heritage. We'll wait until you hear what happened. Win Twenty Twenty three and may updated her results two years later. It's fairly incredible. I though Hel genetically different we really well at the genome scale there. Her over three billion nucleotides that make up our genome. So My name is Sarah Tishkov and I may professor of genetics awesome biology at the University of Pennsylvania and she's hugely influential Sarah and colleagues published the first pipe to support the out of Africa hypothesis of human migration using analysis of the DNA inside cells Nuclei and has conducted the largest studies of genetic variation in in African populations. We differ at about. I would say less than point. One percent of the genome. So that's a relatively small mall amount of difference to give you an idea of we. Compared the human genome to a chimp genome. It differs at about one point. Five percent of the genome less than point point one percent and yet what is contained within that variation that difference the majority of variation is not functional and in fact that variation is very useful for making inferences about evolutionary history about population history demographic McGrath history tracing migration events and so on the part of the genome it actually is influencing variable traits is important for understanding how how we adapted to different environments during human evolution and also understanding why some people are more at risk for certain diseases than others
Kate Upton; Model, Actress, and Founder of Strong4Me
"Welcome to skimp from the couch. I'm so excited to be here okay. So we're going to jump in Skim your resume for us. It's been a crazy awesome journey. I started modeling when I was fifteen. I am like a real adventure heart and convinced my parents Let me travel the world at fifteen and working to get yeah. I couldn't convince them to let me stay out to Oleg. I had like my big break at eighteen when I met with. MJ Day. Ah and was a part of the sports illustrated family and went to meet with and work with some of the most iconic people in the industry you know from Ana Wind Tour Tony Goodman Steven Meisel Corinne Rafael Steven Gan. It's just been an awesome journey and made me. I understand my body like I'm losing the skin part of my resume. Um made me really understand my body starting from the place ace of just being the typical model which was like skinny skinny skinny and I wasn't enjoying my life. I didn't have energy on set and I didn't have a whole life but I didn't have enough energy. Gee to go out with friends or be the best girlfriend. I could be so asserted working with Ben Bruno and we find the best way to ultimately love your body. Love your unique differences from everyone else and find your strongest bestself Matz ultimately why I wanted to launch strong for me is bring all that information to the everyday woman. So what is something that is not on your wikipedia page. We should know about you. There's a Lotta lies on I. Look Oh my God. What's the top lie that you're how did someone even make that up that I was a violin player and he's just own that for sure just I would hate to go to a party without a violin? They'd be very disappointed. Well lucky for you. Maybe not like he found while. I know you brought your sister here today and shouldn't have told us as your disturbed. So what is something. We should know about Kate. Sister did remember one thing that was on your wikipedia pedia pages that you graduated from Indiana University. which funny enough is where brother goes now? I didn't even realize that something that we should know about her. That like like no one else does. What was she an annoying younger sister? Oh Okay I was always motivated and driven and so sweet One thank you know. She did. HAVE MOM walk into school every single day. Try Yeah I mean at least fifteen into what do you mean literally until my mom was like I refuse to. IQ It'd be fifty. Yeah she's like you're embarrassing Scott. Housley I don't care where you and Marissa your mom then had to go to school every single day and like did you walk ahead while I was in college college. Yeah so yeah I mean. She's other people thought she's like come on mom. We're going to do you. I WANNA be the emotional support. Yeah I one of the most support I love just like you know having a little chat with her it has. It is one of the things that I don't often say that I have things in common with. I'm excited remodels. But before you were you. You were a competitive horseback rider. Yes and I couldn't compete but I grew up horseback riding and and love it. Yes she compete in college. I was on. I was on my college equestrian team for half a semester. So how old were you when you started competing. I think I was ten years old. When I started competing I really feel like the foundation of being around? Horses has helped me so much in my life. which is the hard work and being ready to get dirty and really put in the effort and learning about something new and the travel at winner on with competing? It's so cool at a young age that you were a pretty accomplished competitive horseback rider and then went on to have this career. Both things are very individual sports which interesting. Obviously there's a horse may have to have a connection. But how do you feel like that. Set you up to do what you went on to do. I mean I feel like it really helped because I was constantly meeting New People while traveling I was constantly out of my comfort zone in new cities. He's and competing. And then I did the same thing in modelling and I think individual sports which I've really learned from my husband is a whole different mindset. Where were you know I really had to get used to the whole team thing can be? Would you like to tell our listeners. Who Your husband is Justin Bieber Lambert? I feel like it's just a completely different mindset that I was able to fall right into and an individual sports jobs you have to represent yourself you are. You're you're only advocate and I was very used to doing that whether it was with horse trainers or judges or anybody in the industry so my modeling agencies definitely were a little shocked that a fifteen year old had as many opinions. I did especially where my career going before you were even able able to give those opinions to the agencies. You had to convince your parents that you're fifteen. You're getting literally walk to your classroom every day by your mom or your like totally really trust me to go across the world completely fine. How did you convince them to the greatest fun fact? I presented them with a five year. Plan I was like I am going to make a career out of this or go to college so I decided if I started at fifteen eighteen I was young for my grade and I could still be in my same age group going into call it a workout. Yep We're GONNA take a break from competing eating horses because it was very stressful a lot on the economy and everything and then that's when I was like great like I'll just go make my own money. Then ah I convince them and they came on a lot of jobs. My mom him down to Miami. I started in Miami with me a lot and she refused to go into my job though which was actually really great. Those probably the right. Yeah like she knew out but she was really wanted me to learn how to represent myself. If your mom's in a room you're going to depend on her we would have prep interviews or prep castings exactly how supposed to act or what I was supposed to say a walk with me so I could handle it myself and make it a career. I did she tell you to say I mean I was fifteen so from everything like how to be professional national how to respond like got into trouble like so. You're at an age where most people are in high school all but also starting to like go out and be social and you are living in an apartment with other models and your mom is there. Sometimes WHOA I was that age like for you because here you are doing something that is GonNa be the backbone into your career and you sound very driven and at the same time you are our young and beautiful and making money and living with a bunch of other girls away from your parents. What was your life like? I worked every single day and ultimately our still proving to my parents that I wasn't moving to Miami just to party so I was paying my own bills and working constantly and I always say models roles who get the reputation of partying doing drugs or either the ones not working or so rich. They're only working a few days year because otherwise you're so exhausted working working twelve sixteen hour days every single day. I remember asking to get days off when I got my period of like. I'm so tired. Tired conversations go agencies like just let us know if you need a day off. I'm like actually I need a week. I'm really curious because it is obvious. How driven you are in Daniel? Just said like clearly from your question career and into into modeling what obviously modeling is infamous for how harsh the criticism is internally. And you know this kind of striving for perfection and these ideals of perfection and we'll talk about the public criticism that you received which is ridiculous. I'm just curious what it was like for you emotionally every day at work to be told turn this way. Look this way. Don't smile like that like what did that do to you. It puts you in a different mindset mindset because suddenly you almost have to remove yourself from your body and just blackout and do what they say and it also leads. I think angrily young models to do that in their everyday life and just do what is being told of them because you can't really especially being a young model have have an opinion on set. It's it's definitely kind of a crazy mindset that puts you in a very very vulnerable place so when the outside critics came in it was so hard on me because mentally. I wasn't strong to handle when you think about you today as now a businesswoman. How do you translate those experiences at that? Young Age. Chew the businesswoman. You are today. Did it feel you did help you. compartmentalize where do you think it laid the foundation for you today. Yeah definitely only fueled me. It made me learn that I really need to speak my mind and that my opinion does matter because of all those experiences and you know there was so how many times onset when I'd be like way more efficient if they would just do this or if they would just shoot me from this angle. 'cause I already know that lightings bad it it's GonNa take three hours by would just keep my mouth shut because no one wants to listen to the model onset and now I'm like no. My time is worth something and I'm going to say it and we're going to move on. We're going to get this done right. Did you feel like you had a support system in those early years. You weren't the household name and you had those opinions. I mean my family was a huge support system for me but ultimately nobody in my family was involved in industry previously so they could only give me advice from their personal life experiences so I felt a little bit lost becoming well known it was like how do I deal with anything. Everybody was overwhelmed. No one really knew the advice to give me and then shooting the other woman cameron and Leslie gave me like just so many life lessons. That was such a fun movie to watch. I had fun and watching it and it seems like you guys had fun filming it so much fun. Filming US shade you find mentorship from Rotary with other models that were coming up at the same time or is it pretty competitive. I feel like it's not as competitive as people think because when you're a model it's up to the client. I'm maybe the only place that it gets competitive is your agents like Oh is my agent giving me those same opportunities or I should be doing this. I never felt like I was competitive. Have with other girls and you ultimately do work with other models so you become friends. You're in the same place. I mean everybody. She has jealousy but I didn't feel like it ran friendships or
Dog King: King of the Dogs
"Today. We Find Dog King King of the dogs sitting on His throne gazing easing out at his kingdom. It was beautiful that morning shining and bright. Like a weld shooed. Bone the lovely trash and old boxes and mattresses that usually littered the alley kingdom were hidden atop at all like a layer of sweet frosting on a stale cinnamon bun from the dumpster behind behind the donut. Shop was a layer of snow it had fallen during the night laying down a few pillowy pristine inches soon own. It would be marked by paws and tales it would be stained yellow again and again and then trampled into slush for now though it was simply leap. Perfect it's so beautiful. World Dog King said climbing upon his dirty mattress thrown he had added a Grungy Green Green Garland to his cardboard crown and they both sat crooked on his shaggy head. Isn't it gorgeous buddy. uh-huh said pickles breaking through the snow like a newborn penguin. He shook himself from tip to tail wiggling and sending snowflakes flying. The A little Chihuahua was dog king's royal assistant but how much assistance he provided was up for debate. Easy for you to say Your Highness. sinus is right. You're tall and you have snow privilege. Dog Kings scratched at one year. And then the other relocating more than a a few families of fleas and what is no privilege. Well it's simple when you squat to pee. Your rile but doesn't as to the ground. If I was meant to be in the calls I'd have more for my great aunt. Norman now was a hairy dog. Looked like a wig. On a mission auto swear dog king laughed and pulled pickles out of the snow lifting him by the scruff of the neck. Like a mother would a puppy. He sat his shaking friend in his favourite flowered bike basket. It was propped up on some crates up and out of the snowy drifts. I will take curve it dog king said and then he started digging on one side of the alley. His big shaggy pause moved mounds of snow with every scoop. Hey John King said Rambo the pit bull had just walked into the alley dragging giant gnarled log in his teeth eighth. Are you digging. I love a good dig. He got room for one more. Come on in said Don King. The digging is fine. Oh boy said Rambo leaping in and out of the snow bouncing on his paws on mcgibbin ticket revving up. I'M GONNA tunnel straight to Australia over here. Snow Rambo eventually stopped fighting the snow and started helping dog king. More dogs talks began to trickle in and some help dig kicking snow wildly and taking the occasional frenzied bite. Soon there was a clear patch of ground and the short dogs were able to conduct their business without freezing their tails off. Thank Christmas said pickles. Still Shivering I thought it was going to be more and more dogs arrived and dog. King took his seat on his throne tongue. Long lulling and snow stuck all in his coat making him look like a mangy polar bear or maybe a cloud that got into the garbage. So ooh what's on the royal scheduled. Today he asked this morning work decorating the alley pickle said it's going to be so pretty perfect and then the party. Yes party lights. Pickles started to a shake with excitement his little body trembling like a snowflake in the wind and the stuff and the square. Sweet Georgia Brown. The squeakers can't wait to sink my teeth into a good Christmas squeaker center. I've been so good I've been the goodness by Don King smiled and greeted the rest of the dogs as they arrived. Some live nearby like dog king pickles and others had homes around the city but they all came for the holiday party. Everyone was especially excited because this year for the first time they were all getting together. Early to decorate rambos giant logs started the pile but it was only the beginning. Pickles Nichols and Annie dragged in a mostly Green Christmas tree. Broadway brought him minora with mismatched candles. One of which looked suspiciously like a hotdog. Other other wrecks brought candles of his own and Luke the golden doodle brought a small drum that he had chewed up only a little just around the edges on and on they came laden with holiday supplies or food or both there were down. Nations with decorations. Pekingese steeping steeping. Tease retrievers Corgis in oodles. rotties and Beagles and poodles. There were Matz as big as reindeer and Mutt so small they could could fit in a gift box. Broadway came with a Cask of hot broth tied around her neck and she was pouring it onto lapping tongues with bad accuracy but good reviews dog. King patted down the alley to where a group was talking. Garland and Crown wobbling atop his royal head. He accepted did a mouthful and apple and knows full of hot broth from Broadway and stood with his friends. So what's with that. Big Log brought sugar pie. The Saint Bernard asked Rambo. That's a yul log. Rambo replied my mom's. Take me to the woods every year and we burned in one with a bunch of their friends. Altogether I get to chew sticks and last year I almost caught a squirrel. It's my favorite holiday. The the dogs all agreed that that sounded like a pretty excellent time. We always do Christmas said pickles. My family gets altogether even even my great aunt.

You know Dan Dan stand there and Admi- shots which yeah I'm definitely guilty of that even very good until I hit the tree. Yes then you feel differently joke which is very good. Yeah I think it was one of those performances where to get such a discrepancy in the scoreline. You clearly needed one of the place to be brilliant and one of them to be wet off the game. I mean one of the more alarming stats I've ever seen about Bertini was that if you include double-faults he hit as many unforced errors. Is he one points in the match. Which is I'm not account remember really seeing stat line that before? That's really bad. Had it was really bad wasn't an he. He was so bamboozled by the experience that he forgot where the exit to the court wasn't some war on and that was again that was one of those really.

"Awards, including the Ruben for cartoonist of the year. He's written several children's books. He's involved in many environmental and animal charities. He's on the board of directors for the humane society of the United States and the fund for animals, and I am thrilled and honored to have with me today. Patrick mcdonnell. Welcome patrick. Hi, michelle. How are you? I'm fine. Humble. I found your comic strip mutts. And I know I read it a long time ago. And recently rediscovered it and I was just amazed. And I just wanna give a shout out for people that have not heard about you. You have to go too, much dot com and read all about it. Because your comic is it's not like, I don't think it's like anything else because there's things that you add to it that give it a special twist, and we'll get into that a little more. But did you come up with the idea for Matz, Matz is a combination of my two loves have always loved the comic strips the art of comic strips. I've always loved animals so it was nice to combine the two. So I wanted to be a cartoonist since I was a little boy about five years old mainly because the peanuts, and I was in love with Snoopy, and we had cats growing up, and so and then later in my life, I started doing magazine orchestrations, but all the time I kept on thinking I really wanted to a comic. And then I got my first dog Earl and he really inspired much. I think Earl and mooch and mutism tuxedo cat where they the first two in the series. Yeah. Those were the two stars. It's funny. It started out with her. I was doing a comic strip about my dog girl. And I thought it'd be funny if he met a cat next door, and I thought it would be good for media week's worth of jokes. But once I moved like most cats in my life, anyway, they come into your home and takeover so much the cat group. Immediately became to start put they made a good team. Berlin. Yeah. I love Irwin mooch together. And that's so right. All of my cats, actually, my first one Dennis literally, I opened the door. He literally walked in. Stayed and called out walked in and he just stayed in that was nine or ten years ago. So and we. I love the names that you have. And you don't just have you know, Mouton Earl you have a huge cast of characters over the years. It has grown. Yeah. I mean, you have a lot though, there's what four I think four or five cats has fish snails. You have let's see a crab, and I like how the crab talks and. And you have they're squirrels birds. There's the snail. I don't know if the seal is staying as a full-on character or not. But there's this huge cast of characters. How did you come up with the idea to add some of them like like, the crab where did that come from the credit? Come from. I live in New Jersey everybody in New Jersey goes down the shore for the summer, which I've done my whole life. I thought it would be nice early boot twin on vacation. So I had to go down the jersey shore. And it was a really nice opportunity to do a whole bunch of animals. I haven't been able to put in their backyard. So that's where the crabs fish and the whales coming. You know, it started out as a dog and cat script. I thought everyone could relate to their own talking cabin. Respond to that bond wheel. As this progressed. I I just know trying to see the world from their point of beers from the animals point of view. I think got more empathetic and more compassionate. I just branched out and started to feel why can't people feel that way about all animals that way they feel about their own dog and cat. So that's kind of the message of much that's really touching. And that's great because some people do have crabs as pets. I heard of everything and pets, you know, so squirrels and frogs, and I mean, I don't know about snails, but probably somewhere smells, a pet imagine. Okay. I also wanna know how you came up with the names like stinky pudding, which also has that cool dialect and push and chick pea chickpea, especially how did you and moods? That's an interesting. How did you come up with these names? I will roll the dog was named after my own door. I wasn't gonna name a, but when I was first doing this trip. I had the honour and pleasure to be friends with Charles Schulz of peanuts, and Charles Shulz Kobe shoe dog after my own dog. So Trump show. Go girl. Was named after like, I said we catch growing up as kids in my mom used to call. You know, when the cat comes you that little head, but your face like, a little kiss, and my mom, always Kolkata mooch a little head. But to the face she called that. Which would be a nice thing. A friend of mine had a cat named chickpea. And I just thought that was a great name for a cat. So that was the inspiration for chickpea, and what about stinky pudding? Or tools, and it's not stinky, stinky. No, that's that's actually my conversation. I had with my wife was the second cat we add. And like I said well these cats referral catch that walking tour live. So we found this little cat that really stunk to high heaven we were trying to think of a name for it. And I say, well, let's name because he pretty much staying and my wife called, stinky, we need to calm a cute name like putting. So then we call them, stinky, putting actually actually came from my life believe it or not. That's so cool. Hey, everyone. I just wanna tell you about this. Great new litter, I found Molly and Dennis and Charlotte. Love it. And what's even more? Important, mama. Loves it a lot. It's called pretty letter. And what it does that it makes it so different from any other litter I've ever used as it has a built in health monitoring system. So the letter actually changes color to let you know, if there's anything going on with your cat because cats hide their health issues. They don't really talks and tell you about it until it's almost too late. So what this does is it starts off. It's actually starts off pretty it's a white crystalline, and it will turn colors as your cat does its business. There's actually a color code on the bag and let me know if it turns this color, you know, monitoring because it might be time to see your bed and check it out. Also what I love. Is that it's eco-friendly at scooper bowl. It's absorbent has low dust it has great odor control. And probably one of the best things. One four pound bag last a month with for what each cat that is fabulous. And well, no, I love that. But I love this too..

Your Brains Binary Bias, How to Choose Charities
"Today. You'll learn about why your brain jumps to extremes. How did choose the best charitable cause. For your next donation. And why dogs really do look like their owners with satisfy some curiosity on the award winning curiosity daily. Have you ever had an argument with someone and the person acts like there are two options? And nothing in between is valid will. It turns out. There's a thing called binary bias, and it's your brains way of setting up false dichotomies for you to choose between. I feel like this bias, basically explained the entire internet. See, but whatever we talk about biases. It's always easy to talk about other people. But everyone does it. So you do it. I do it everybody if you ever tempted to leave a one-star or five star reviews somewhere, and you can't even consider leaving a tooth three or four star review. This is an example of that totally. It's either the best thing ever are the worst thing ever. I remember this happening with the legend of Zelda breath. The Wild woo. which was like one of the best Zelda games ever made. And I want metacritic right after it came out, and there's all these one star reviews, and it's like, I didn't think this one thing. So it's the worst game ever. Right. There's like, dude, what are you doing schemes genius? Anyway, according to a new study in psychological, science binary bias, distorts the way, you form beliefs. Here's an example from the study, let's say you're reading through a list of the effects of certain drug and the results you're seeing don't all agree with each other some test group save the drug makes them hungry. Four times more often than usual. Well, others don't experience any change in their hunger and others become hungry about half as often as usual. Now. It's your job to figure out how the drug effects hunger levels overall, the researchers gave participants different data for how many people would experience each affect. But the average of the data sets was always the same number. Most of the participants came up with totally different averages though. That's because they had split the difference between the extreme effects. They would. Judge the likelihood of hunger based on how many high results were compared to low results. Not what the average result was the researchers found the same thing in another experiment or this showed participants menus from two different restaurants. Both had the same average price per item. But the I mean, you had higher prices for the dishes that were lowest and highest priced. So a lot of people said that menu was more expensive. This bias is so pervasive. The researchers believe it's a cognitive shortcut that helps us process large amounts of information more efficiently. According to the authors quotes, our work suggests the bias is a basic processing mechanism, which is applied across many contexts, including health financial and public policy decisions, unquote. That's why it's easy to paint someone with different political beliefs with a broad brush in just safe there at the absolute extreme end of the spectrum. Just remember that there's almost always a lot of middle ground to cover. So just because Ashley doesn't love video game. Doesn't mean she hates them. And just because I like video games doesn't mean that. I don't do anything else. Right. Around the holidays, you might spend hours figuring out your shopping wishlist or hunting for the best sales. But how much time do you? Spend researching charities today is giving Tuesday an international movement to promote a day of charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season. And we've got some tips for how to choose the best charitable cause for your donation. That's because of the sad fact that a lot of charity programs just don't work their heart is in the right place. But the numbers aren't a twenty fifteen literature survey found that out of ninety educational interventions tested ninety percent had week or even no positive effects of employment boosting programs that figure was seventy five percent. But a little extra research can ensure you get the biggest bang for your charity buck, according to the nonprofit eighty thousand hours, the most pressing problems will have a good combination of three things scale solvability and neglected nece. So in other words, how big is the problem? How easy is it to solve? And how many resources are already devoted to it? Let's use the HIV aids epidemic. As an example, say you were considering supporting one of these five interventions to fight aids surgical treatment for an aids related illness. Anti retroviral therapy to fight the virus and people who are infected prevention of transmission during pregnancy condom distribution to prevent transmission on the whole and education for the groups at highest risk of infection. Which one do you choose without any research? You might think that they're all just as cost effective. But in fact, the best of these is a whopping fourteen hundred times more cost effective than the least surgery barely registers on the chart while education towers over the other methods, the more cost effective the intervention the more power your dollar has once you've chosen a pressing issue with a cost effective evidence. Based intervention it's time to choose your charity sites. Like guide star charity, navigator and charity watch are useful for rating charities themselves. They look at. Like accountability transparency and financial health to make sure your donations are being used effectively. And honestly, one more time those sites are guide star charity, navigator and charity watch. We'll put a Lincoln today's show notes in case you're in a giving mood. Hey, look who's back.

But this only works with purebreds that two thousand four study showed that strangers only got the right answer about thirty five percent of the time with Matz, but it's not just dogs that this works with here's with things. Get interesting. A twenty fourteen study. Had participants try to match people with the cars they owned and they guest which cars belong to which people at a rate that was greater than chance. But only when they saw the cars had on that's exists that it really is a cars quote, unquote face that matches up with its owner. The question you're probably asking right now is why is it that people are more likely to buy a car that looks like them or that the more likely to be sold? One will twenty eighteen study published in the society for consumer psychology suggests the letter in this study, researchers found that regardless of a customer's preferences sales people had a distinct tendency to pitch round shaped products to overweight customers, and there was no evidence to suggest that overweight, people prefer rounder products that suggests that at least some of the time people are picking up the products that are being pushed on them based on their looks instead of based on their preferences. Either way. This is all pretty interesting stuff. Just leaves me to one question. Actually, do you look like your cat. Oh, definitely. I do. I hope I do. She's gorgeous. How'd you pick her out? It's a cute story. Actually, I went to the shelter. I was petting all the cats. I started petting her. She's very sweet. And then I was like, okay. I got a pet the other cats now. So I put her down. And then she put her little paw on my leg to be like, oh, no keep going, please. And that was it. I was hooked. Yeah.
