Haka and cultural appropriation
"The Haka is a part of Mari Culture. It's a type of movement that involves the whole body invoice New Zealand's rugby team. The all blacks performed a version of it at competitions around the globe here they are performing it in Japan during a match last year's Rugby World Cup. Many team members are Maury. What you'll hear is they're stomping their hands beating on their chests entice. On how. It's impressive to watch a Haka. Traditionally, it's not for entertainment. It's ceremonial has deep roots in multiculture. Of course, some people don't understand that and mimic anyway. A handful of Brazilian companies use the Haka in their corporate retreats. The Non Murray owner of Hakka training said he learned hawk. By watching videos of the all blacks rugby team. Another company huck Brazil performed the Haka at a Ted talks event such displays. Displays are drawing criticism from Murray people, and they're calling it cultural appropriation. We'll get more and what Hawk is and represents today. We are going to start off in new.

But the also that buried deep spiritual connection in traditional values associated with the Hutto. In when you're teaching, young people or young people are taught about this in a traditional sense What are they told what is happening because you're using your breath, you're using your body. You're using your your own personal sound What is taught to young people about why you do this in what it is, you're actually giving. So I think this probably two different forms of teaching now this the form of Hakka where you taught to try and intimidate the the opposition and Chevy Hafeez. Scary became. The. The the the other way where some people are taught. For entertainment purposes for competitions against other. Maori people. but as ways. To Euro has taught.

Hello, I'm scared of... crime books!
"I think. That's one of the kind of joys and the drawbacks of crime is zone and it's one of the things that annoys me when people always read pieces in the newspapers whereas it's someone making sweeping generalizations about crime this crime that and actually crime is a huge on. R- it's as big as you know it's like saying fiction is this like of course then some parts of fiction it is but crime spans the gamut from really intensely literary right through to kind of pure page-turners an really like terrifying stuff. That is way too hot for me. I'm quite a REC- readers. I chose reader. Yeah yeah that makes for better things stops me is that I'm like kind of scattered Dr. I'm an ex Christian but for some reason I still it kind of affects like how much I really believe in ghosts which is more people and let me say that your Senate Sky Dateline kind of chills and speak. He stuff like there's quite a lot of playing about with that in my books but what I really don't. I cannot read books that are kind of sold. Like people locked in basements or sexual torture or particularly stuff happening to kids. That's just like my my line You know no shade on people who write that. It's we need to explore all areas of human experience in fiction. And that's fine but it's not what I want to spend my evenings immersing myself in you know when you're not familiar with the genre as you say. Sometimes the jackets can similar when they kind of wildly different types of six and it is a bit of a learning curve. I think finding out sort of which bit because I I also have had this stuff about crime fiction through the ages where it's like often this get letting the thing that is scary in the book as a society. We're a little bit afraid of and that can make change throughout the decades but then it also means that on a personal level of the stuff that you're like I'm quite interested in exploring fair and then other stuff that is enjoyable to explore the new stuff. That's definitely I mean. The classic thing that is always talked about is the fact that the golden age of crime was in between the wars and Agatha Christie was writing all the way through the Second World War and wrote some of her best names route. Twelve books I think during the second mobile without stopping sometimes two books a year and people who wanted to read about this and even in the midst of kind of death and bereavement and destruction and bombs and huge uncertainty. They wanted crime and it becomes. Yeah they sort of. Are they exploring phase safely They wanted to live in a world where the impossible is solved. May Right and where bodies brought to justice. I don't know if there was easy. Onces like I would publish a thesis on it and become a PhD. If it's the same with you but like I say. I think that there's probably a lot misconceptions around crime and just named one of the crime writers that I know apart from nightmare modern switched our Agatha Christie and then shallow stuff like that's the only kind of two touch points a puffer Moton wrenches. The I know like what do you come up against misconceptions at variety forgot anymore misconceptions That you have but like do you come up against those things in the book and what which ones are true and which ones are like. Not Surgery are accurate. I think one thing I sometimes maybe misconception. On the hair is that they. They're not always believable and things. Sometimes people read to escape. Some people read to understand that life or the situational things going on in the world a little bit more and I think there are a lot. I know that there are a lot like that. I think that's not necessarily something I believe. I think that sometimes a bit of misconception that it sort of by so many things can happen to someone in the morning but life I watched enough kind of true crime dramas tonight actually extraordinary things do happen to people. That's why I might see rates because I've always struggled with that exact question of I don't want to write a procedural. I don't want to write about police officer because I don't inhabit that world and it's not my area of expertise and you do run up against the question of realistically. How many bodies can an ordinary person stumble? We're not Jessica Fletcher. We don't like Pandora in Cabot Cove and have a corpse waiting there every single day. So you know something that crime writers struggle with as well but I do. I firmly believe that it is completely possible. Implausible for one terrible unlikely incident to strike people in a lifetime. I think we've all been the victims of those and we know people who've had terrible extraordinary things happen to them so I don't think in itself that's but yet when it happens again and again and again. This is an interesting one because you can say that any genre like pick Saad poetry. And how sad can Waldman really be like you know like a little life is like? That's brutal like I think. We can fly that to to cry when actually we can say that about a lot of German. You're always going to be talking about the extraordinary end of ordinary. Even when you know even when it's just a regular life you're writing about it. In some kind of heightened artificial way. No one writes about life as it really happens because it would be incredibly tedious and full of sequiturs either. That's not how fiction works. We accept that it's a kind of construct but yes how far you'll cater for peds to to follow that construct but do you so. Do you read climate. All right if you read stuff and enjoyed it or you just never really got to grips with that. As as you know I have and I remember when I was younger. My Dad my dad is a big kind of threat breeze all the big American crime office and I remember the get that again. It's I remember picking up because I was on holiday and I ran. We ran out two books and I picked up a Ro Robert Ludlum book and I absolutely loved and for years it was the Sigma Protocol and it was one of my favorite books because it had this kind of I was so gripped by the narrative but also had this kind of the end of real big moral question kind of about ethics and I just found really fascinating but then I didn't pick up another one. So it's it's. It's a bit strange so I don't really know why because the ones I have read. I have enjoyed that. I think I also haven't I work in publishing and a low of my reading is dictated by what I work on. Haven't actually worked with any modern crime. Rights is so I don't know yeah. It's not that I haven't enjoyed them. I just think it's interesting like what we bookshop. What we go towards. Because it's what we see ourselves. I'm like I didn't really see myself as a crime rate even though I've read crime is that thing of like what settles in your head and doesn't right if you were going to pick up the next crime book. Let's find one for eight. What would you be looking for in a crime free Even the book. Yeah gives you elements and we'll diagnose. Okay will somewhere with a real sense of place that I can kind of stand on this because we're not going anywhere right now that we need some vivid sensitive travel escape my falls something historical but maybe more kind of twentieth century historical and something. I do think that raises questions. It makes you think differently about something so I kind of like moral ambiguity in well. I have three suggestions for you. If people are sort of struggling to find their way into genre I sometimes think it's helpful to have sort of stepping stone books. That kind of are not necessarily crime but crime adjacent and a book which I firmly believe is part of the psychological thriller Genre and I would probably be one of the best but isn't usually shoved as that regard it is that is Rebecca by definitely Maury Which I think has the amazing sense of place that you're after Obviously it also literary classics. So it's just a really good book to have read if what is adjusted in literary fiction because it's the touchstone for a lot of kind of literary fiction as well as a lot of crime fiction Another book which again is kind of Paul of the Classic Crime Cannon and I think has the kind of moral questioning and ambiguity. That may be talking about Would be the time. Mister Ripley by Patricia Highsmith She is just wonderful writer full stop. She writes very sparsely. She's amazing at creating character. She plunged irritate and it is a crime novel. You're kind of trying to figure out what's happening whether Ripley's GonNa get caught. But she sort of puts you on the opposite side most crime because you're in Ripley skin and you're rooting for him. Even as he's doing terrible terrible things but you also kind of at the same time want justice to catch up with him but in terms of Morton book which I think takes away your boxes including the historical one. I would highly recommend Alabama cheese Series which is set in the Indian raw and has to fantastic Cactus at the center of it. There's some who's an English man who's been kind of Dropped into colonial India in sort of Typically kind of bossing the locals around and then as he's kind of second in command and sidekicks the not who's an Indian And it's just it's brilliantly done and it tackles some really big questions alongside each time. A really cracking mystery in terms of you. WanNa find out whodunit. You WanNa you the detectives to solve it. You want everyone to be bang to rights but he's really grappling with big twentieth century. Questions that estill dogging us today in terms of the fact that we don't have solutions. These are still things the Iraqi going in the news today. I'm they're just cracking a good races
Morey J. Kolber PT PhD CSCS- Covid-19 as a Physical Therapist
"So maury. I know that you've had a big change in your main job right now. Which is teaching physical therapy students at Nova southeastern and I'm curious before all this came down. How much teaching of physical therapy students Nova southeastern was done in the online environment versus what we think of as the typical face to face environment of education all our program at Nova Southeastern University in Fort. Lauderdale campus is traditional teaching. So it is a face to face program. An each faculty sort of had a different way of approaching their courses. Some faculty had a mix of online prerecorded lectures in class laboratory. Others were one hundred percent in class. I I think it was somewhat variable but prior to all of this era traditional program. We have lecture class as we have lab classes. We have testing so the landscape of what we do. Moving forward is already changed. And it's GonNa continue to change and I know we were talking a little bit before I started recording. And you said that you had some impetus essentially a month ago that there may be some changes or to be prepared for some changes. And what was your initial thoughts when you heard that? Potentially you might be teaching courses in physical therapy program entirely online. I mean my initial reaction was panic because everything I do everything I've had setup is face to face that's the part of my job that I enjoy the most I think for some people. They probably saw a great thing for me. It certainly wasn't but there were some initial panic. Probably the first thing I did is stopped. All clinical visits adapt might have for various reasons one being the the threat obviously of Kobe. But the other was knowing that I needed to begin dedicating some hard time into creating modules and a change in my course which is currently ongoing. And I know you've been teaching for a number of years although courses changes knowledge changes and you try new things. How much of an increase in workload did you see or how difficult was to take some of these classes that until a month ago you were seeing students two or three times a week and now suddenly you're like okay? This all has to be delivered online in a synchronous or a synchronous manner right. It seems that something that would take five minutes in the classroom setting. We'll take fifteen minutes on his accession. Astrom said I'm sorry and I'm curious with the students that you've communicated with so far health familiar with most Zoom in online education versus panicked similar. To what you had a couple of weeks ago I mean fortunately for us in what it seems. Our students are probably a little bit more savvy than than some of us in terms of online learning. When I went to Undergrad we didn't have online learning. I imagine most of them did to some degree. Fortunately for us our program director had began pushing us into into exam. Soft which is a means of testing getting rid of paper and it wasn't because of this. This was last semester. So fortunately we transitioned into that software program to deliver our tests so we ready to go with that. Had We had to learn that at the same time it would have been a challenge in with that and the switch to online education with the students. What is the reaction of the students that you've talked with been so far? They've been excited about it. Just happy that they continue it or kind of a little bit of panic. Because it's something new. I think there's a little bit of panic with regard to testing because now they're they're being tested in an environment that they have to create that his private secure. There's a camera watching them. So that's changed. The ability to review exams is obviously changed due to security. You don't want exposure questions whereas when you have a setting where student comes your office you hand them a written exam they take a look at it. There's no exposure of that exam so now there's different considerations that didn't exist before you know. I'm always reluctant to to approach students. Say Hey how did you like the lecture? I just did on zoom because I think when you do that you know your you know your responses are going to say why I really liked it. I don't know that it's appropriate. I'm not big on just walking up approaching the students say hey. How did you like what I just did? Because students are generally kind been. We'll we'll say they liked it but that doesn't necessarily mean they did. I feel like our students have an expectation to in classroom teaching and laboratory sessions Expectations GonNA possibly need to change. Perhaps through the whole summer and I know I've been teaching for a number years at California University of Pennsylvania. Not In a physical therapy program but in exercise science program in our classes are a synchronous in other words we do narrated lectures and things like that where the students have a time period where they have to complete it with Sudan. Switch that you've had with your teaching. Are you doing this in a synchronous manner or their specific classroom times where students that you saw month ago in the classroom you our meeting with them on Zoom? So plan is moving forward to have both a synchronous synchronous so the plan will be for the summer. We were just wrapping up our semester. So there wasn't a lot of content but it was mix tasing fairness and synchronous moving forward into the summer. The students will be given a certain amount of time to do a review of a lecture. That's a synchronous. And then when they complete that then there will be a zoom session. Which will be synchronous where it'll be more focusing on cases questions and reviewing the content that they did earlier we have a media platform called counter. And that's what we use for our courses to prerecord certain lectures and I think from an efficiency perspective for them and us that's going to be strategy provide these cal- Torah lectures for the heart lecturing. Because if you think about it these students are going to be sitting in a zoom session. Three hours in the morning three hours at the end of the day it is going to wear on providing a synchronous cultural lecture. That's prerecorded and following up with a review. Overview zoom is going to be the way to go and I'm also interested in learning As physical therapy program. I know the American Physical Therapy Association has certain requirements. That students must meet. How communicated have been with you and with your program as far as recognizing that okay. This is something that really hasn't been done before we haven't had a pandemic and almost one hundred years so this is a significant change. What is their communication been with? You will our director and share. Have sort of been on the front line in terms of communicating with captain which is our accreditation body and at first there was this fear in debt. Changing our curriculum is a substantial change. It's GONNA require an application forms paperwork but Kathy did come down with some some documents stating that. There would be some flexibility based on this situation and with both changing models of classroom teaching as well as clinical hours and I suspect the most important thing about that is that when students finish their work at Nova southeastern. They'll have the ability to sit for the certification
From Adversity to Opportunity Pt3
"Welcome back to day. Three of the former adversity to opportunity series. This is C. Kaelin intention here is to help you to be happier healthier and stronger especially doing this challenging time. Yesterday we talked about who we are is what we consume so be very cognizant about what we consume. Today I wanNA talk to you about the importance of Self Care. Now you may say. Ck This is so basic. What I want to emphasize here is especially doing uncertain. Times especially during challenging times is even more important that we focus on our sphere of influence. A SPHERE OF CONTROL. Our sphere of rituals. Because if you focus on things that you can't control then you will get even more anxious more nervous and more worry but if you actually focus on your sphere of influence things you actually have controller starting with yourself. That's when we'll get real power real strength real certainty WANNA focus on here is rituals that you have to maintain your own. Sovereignty Maintain Your own control. Maintain your sphere of influence. Starting from number one will come on nutrition. You getting number two. What kind of exercises? You're getting number three. What Kinda. You're getting in number four. What kind of gratitude rituals you have? These are all things that you have direct control over in uncertain times. It's very easy very simple. I say a Maury. I'm concerned I'm nervous therefore let me throw everything out the window. Let me just go consume all the chocolate or the ice cream. All the sugary things on alcohol of the net flakes all the news that normally consume because this is a extraordinary time. I'm just going to eat or I can eat right. It's very easy to go down. That road requires a little bit more effort now to be aware to be cognisant to continue to follow through what you know you ought to do for yourself. The second thing here I want to focus on is exercise. It's very easy to forego your exercise routine skiving. Excuse of now. Having a gym is an example. I can't go to gym anymore. Therefore I'm juice GonNa not do it. I have my regular exercise. My resistance space exercise my weight lifting rituals. My Yoga class is very easy to use. All of that thinks you stop exercising altogether for those of you. That have regular excise rituals. You know that exercising enhance your mood in enhance your cognitive capability. Enhance your energy level. You just feel so much better afterwards at the same time. Also enhances your spirituality as well because it challenges you to actually be in the present moment right now so make sure you maintain your exercise ritual. The third thing is how much rescue getting how much you're getting. It's very easy just to throw out the window and just go to bed at four in the morning and wake up at two in the afternoon. Etcetera in times of uncertainty is even more important that you maintain your rest. Rest is directly proportional to how much immunity you have if you don't have enough rest. Your immunity is proven to go down proper. Rest is the bedrock of your emotionality your immunity as well as your cognitive capability so rest is super super important. Make sure you're getting enough rest. Make sure you get consistent rest. At consistent time the fourth thing in very very important for my point of view is the ritual of gratitude. Most of us are grateful during extraordinary moments. You go to a special concert. You see a special performance you go to a special festival. You go on a special vacation. You have a Special occasions like birthdays anniversaries weddings and so forth right. Well very grateful for extraordinary moments like that at the same time. Now you being forced to stay at home through social distance. It's very easy to say. This is so ordinary diseases so boring and therefore it's easy to not have gratitude for ordinary moments the practice. I'm inviting you to take on is to deepen your gratitude for these ordinary moments each ordinary moment. It's the atomic. Unit of our days are weeks or months are years are decades in ultimately our life. The more you practice being grateful for the ordinary moments the more you'll be able to appreciate your overall life if you can actually deepen your appreciation of the ordinary moments. The collective whole of your entire life would be so much more meaningful so practice. Deepening your gratitude for ordinary moments. Just like when you go to the gym you develop your capacity to lift heavier weights at a time of limitations and restrictions right now you can actually develop more capacity for different dimensions of freedom. Let me repeat that again. At a time of limitations and restrictions you can actually develop a higher capacity for different dimensions of freedom.
How Queer Eye Star Karamo Brown Deals With Thirsty DMs
"Welcome to just SIP. I am Justin Sylvester and today we have one of the FINEST BLACK MEN ON TV. Joining us for this podcast. This conversation was it was jeep. I found out a lot about myself. I found out a lot about the queer eye. Cast I mean there were some nuggets in this interview and I'm just so happy to have one of the most enlightenment join me today. On this podcast. Please welcome Kerama Brown. Thank you for coming. I'm so glad to be here. We are at just a SIP with the one Kerama Brown. Everybody thank you. I'm calling this episode sex drugs and Maury Povich book. If you guys have not gotten this book right now get it and do yourself a favor. Do not. Just get the book the Audio Book because you can hear it in his own words. I am audio book person. I listen to them all the time. Never have I heard so much heart so much love so much pain behind one person telling a story. I appreciate that Boo at all. So all we can you texting me saying. Oh my gosh that part this part and that made me so happy you have no idea because I put a lot of people when they write memoirs they say they're going to be open transparent about everything but then they don't and I was open and transparent about every single thing for sure I was like I'm not hiding anything I don't want you were giving me. Yama for two hours on the treadmill because we're so open and transparent. Who was the one person you were scared to read this manuscript because you? Kinda just laid out there. Yeah nobody to be honest with you because before I started read everyone knows that I live my life. One hundred percent on one hundred percent open. Because that's the only way I feel like other people can grow if I'm an example of the growth and so I let everyone know completely before I was writing this book. I'm writing it and I would like to include your you being a part of my life in this and if you're okay with it let me know right now. If you're not then I'm going to have to figure out a way to still sell your story switching. Yeah and every single person was like we already figured you'd be honest about it so I wasn't worried about anyone to be honest about it and good and there was one subject in there that you decided that you needed to pull back on so I didn't talk about my mother being abused in detail because my father used to hit her because she still healing and so as I was writing. I was noticing that it was bringing up a lot of emotion that she hadn't healed from yet so I was like you know what I'm not trying to trigger my mother. I love my mother's roll back and help her with the you know the tool so that she could support herself and then when my suicide attempt I figured I don't need to go into detail about that because if someone else's reading it I don't them to say Oh this is how I can do it. Yeah I wanted to instead. Stop at a certain point. And then say if you're having these feelings or if you know some of these feelings here our resources you can use. Yeah because a lot of times people don't do that. Yeah and I'm like if you pick up this book here's a way you can get the hell yeah. Was there something that happened while you were writing where you thought you were over something and you had worked through something but then writing this book you almost had to reactivate it and re re confronted you talk about a lot of things in the book about your name and being gay all these things? Sometimes we don't take on you know we don't take it on fully. Yes we kind of brush over it. Yes they we're fine but we're not anything in this book where you were writing so yes but not really because I do the work myself. I mean like career wise. That's I think I'm so good on. Queer is because having a background in psychotherapy social work. I can do the digging and digging on myself. The one thing I would say that kind of triggered me a little bit was when I got to the color. Ism Chapter in 'cause I talked about how my skin tone my grandmother used to say to me. Don't talk it up a family anymore. Which you know. She comes from a certain time. Where you to be lighter meant that you could have attained more success and so when I was writing that it brought up these feelings again because through Social Media. I get these comments because I'm engaged to a white man. Yeah that somehow me being engaged to a white man has somehow diminished my experience as a black man in this world and it bothers me like people say. Oh You Dana White Guy so you all of a sudden have lost part of your blackness and I'm like when I walk out the world people don't see me with a White Man. They see a black man and when the police stopped me they don't say oh you're dating a white guy we'll let you we'll let you go. You're good yeah. Don't have Kiki somewhere and a drink. No they say you still black band. And that's what gets on my nerves and so when I was writing that I realized that there are still issues with my color that it's a different former Colorado but there's parts of it that still bother me because it didn't erase yeah raise yes completely you know. It's funny because when I first came out. I think people had a problem being gate but now that I've come out and in the past dated a white guy when I go home with a guy they now look at me because I'm an interracial relationship you're from Houston Texas. That probably still happens to you. Oh my gosh are you kidding me everywhere? I go like the minute we pop up. This was really gets me people. Somehow he put me on like back up back you up. My man is successful but my had no hand in giving me the career the success the money in my bank account and it bothers me when we go out and people assume my career is somehow because of something. He's that yeah I'm like have lost. Meanwhile he's like a doctor somewhere else talked about this. You know what I'm saying. DoN'T COME FROM MR. Calhoun exactly well. Let's remind people where you started? Yes because rule. Philadelphia was everything. Yeah you were the first black openly gay man on television. What was that experience reality? Reality mother ru father who was the first. Let's let's be very real but in reality television and when that title came out I didn't even know that also people's right in there and I was like what are you talking. About Ruben around forever and then I was like oh reality television got it and what was it like It's it's it's sad and it's also exciting because I was on the real world in two thousand and four two thousand five. Why in the hell has there never been an openly? Gay Black Man cast before me. Yeah that's a problem for sure because we have been around. Let me take some I go to Atlanta. I go to Chicago New York. Texas Tennessee and black gay men are around thriving doing the most amazing setting culture setting trends yet. I was the first so it kind of disappointed me because I was like there should have been twenty before me before me but then on the same rate I was like well. I'm glad that I could kick open the door so that now there could be more people and then I'm going to continue. Kick Open that door and also gonNA continue that every other brother. That is Gay I'm going to say come up with me. Let's let's do together. I let me applaud. You let me celebrate you. Let's let's do this. We don't do that very often was many. Don't but many do you do I do. And I think it's important that we encourage those who on their journey to loving themselves and to love others to know that we support them in that they'll get there. Yeah no in. Two Thousand and four people weren't living that loud. We were still kind of in the closet. You Know Oprah said. We was in the closet. Let me tell you I was out in the club. Run IN THE STREET. Oh do it in. Oversized Shala John Jeans and Timberlands and then each outfit sounds happy. I need you ought to put together like a collage when you go on TV and you live your life like that and then the reality stops and you're back in your real reality. Yes what was the? What was I guess? What was the backlash because you know with my family? It's like you can be gay. You can be you. We support you but the minute you put it out there. It's a little bit harder. Yes that and that's exactly it. I had family members who immediately were turned off from speaking to me my father and I we already had a rocky relationship because he couldn't reconcile our relationship with his religion and so because he he believed his God was teaching him that somehow I was not perfectly designed and not made in his eyes. He figured I can't talk to you but then on top of that me putting it on television embarrassed him and so he didn't WanNa talk to me. We got into physical altercations. It was bad and there was other family members. Come from Jamaica in house so it's like the Black Culture Jamaican Culture Cuban culture which unfortunately there are members subscribed to this sort of ideal of what it is to be a man. Yeah and then me being proud and well-spoken on national television somehow didn't define me as a man because of the fact that I had intimate relationships with other men and your only son and I'm the only son and so you know it was. It was hard but then on the flip side which I tried to do was focus on all the people who love me like I will just showered with so much love beginning letters and letters and letters from people saying Oh my Gosh I love you. You're amazing mice messages. Dmz ENDS. It was good. It was good but I'm not GONNA lie it. I took a dark path quickly because I felt like I lost myself because trying to battle the family and the good of here trying to be something more at Age. Twenty three was a lot. Yeah and so it got it got rough real quick she black Jamaican and Cuban. Sx is good. You better you show up with a PPO per somebody. Did it. Better be an ambulance late nights. I just can't even imagine it would add. Top passed already clear the room you were living your best life. Look my favorite line. In this whole book I found. It is when you said molly you in danger girl. Okay when your I'm not having an explainer people I'm GonNa let you explain it to them because it was one of the most profound things that I've read. What was that moment like for you when I found my drug of choice. Yes Oh my gosh. Tell me you history. Yes so I mean my father being rastafarian Jamaican Us We'd he recreationally and so it was always in my house shot. Okay I loved it. I loved trying. We'd because it made me feel social when I got it first time from him so it was a weird experience of like not having to go to a corner to get we'd just being able to say. Let Me Walk. My Dad's room and get weed and but then I realized I didn't like the feeling of it. I didn't like being lethargic. I didn't like it was down. It was a downer. I didn't like it so then I started trying to know you weren't going in your dad's closet to get some weed. He had a basketball side. Oh yeah he well he did okay he did he did. He had won by his bed but he also had like a basketball in the freezer. This yeah like big of weed in the freezer and so I'll just opened up the bag and I'd be like with my friends be like oh how much we need today and I would just take it out the bag and so it was easy for me to access it but I didn't like the Downer feeling of it and then I stopped that because I never had addictive personality towards that but though I had an addictive personality So then I started molly and ecstasy and that was cute for like the first couple of times I was like yes. I like someone rub up on me and I was like yes. We are living. Ooh And then as I would have to take three pills to have that same feeling. I was a you're sweaty.

Oh for real world yes and you start out on this dirty your sixty three you in between one hundred ninety three and two hundred and ten pounds and you get introduced to cocaine yes. What's at first feeling like
From Brady to Carr, ranking Bears' quarterback options in NFL free agency, draft
"Free agency. Starting soon as we mentioned earlier in the show March eighteenth four. Pm teams can actually out signings the signings and the wide receiver classes fascinating Jj. Because I think mostly because it sort of matches up with the draft class. This is a loaded wide receiver draft class studs and studs and studs. Nobody that's like necessary. I I like I tend to think see lamb and Jerry. Judy can be. I don't want to call them like Julio Jones. Aj Green types. Because that I think does a disservice to really any young player coming to the League to to compare them too borderline hall. Julio definitely the hall of fame. Aj Borderline Hall of fame to compare them to that type of player. But there's a great group of guys who look like they can be viable starters in the NFL out of the gate however they will have to compete with teams who resigned teams will have to decide. Do they want to ask somebody like that or do they want to size like? Aj Green should he make free agency? let's go through your top five wide receivers. Who's at number five number? Five number five. I have Randall COBB. Yes sorry I remember number five. I Have Randall. Cobb. Randall COBB. Of course coming off that season with the cowboys really difficult to see how they're going to be able to pay him And so as I was going through this and I thought to myself well thought. Where could he ended up? In fact I didn't think that's about self depot. Ask me where he could end up. I would have to tell you on your and some wanted to tell you that. I'm looking at an Indianapolis Colts a team. That was really struggling to throw the ball down the field last year. Now lot of that adds do of course which cover said. I understand that but I've never really been impressed with the wide receiving group that the colts have of course. They thought that they were going to have a few more options That did not work out with Devon punches. Who dealt with injury for most of the season. So Randall COBB. He's GONNA turn thirty before next season. He's at nine. Nfl seasons he had a eight hundred plus yards last year. I like him. What the colts and whoever their quarterback could be yes so it's interesting the question is would you rather have a guy like rental car bounced back nicely. Who Fits with the perfect slot style of of the modern? Nfl You've got three wide receiver sets etc etc. You can win outside and in some cases might be too old that now he's going to be thirty before the season starts or would you rather dabble in the shod. Perrin and sweepstakes and I might be inclined to agree with you. I like the PERSAD. Payment freaks me out like what? You're really like this Guy Ozzie. Newsome couldn't get this guy right and you're telling me that now like Jameis. Winston fixed him. I don't know if I'm buying it entirely woods. I would run away from shop Perriman. eighty might be fantastic human being but in terms of on the field play. I think that it was a flash in the pan how he sort of came on there in November and December for the bucks Certainly James with the five thousand passing yards sort of inflated his six hundred forty five receiving yards Paran- I just had issues for most of his career and I'm not willing to take a few weeks from last season. He's turned the corner. I kind of tend to agree with you. I wouldn't be opposed to like a one year not too pricey deal with precise payment but I would not want to make some big splash on that guy Given what's out there. It is interesting to this class offers. A lot of slot options like Geronimo. Alison is their Nelson Aguilar. Philip door set You can uh Devin funchess. Maybe didn't make the cut for. Jj surprise there. He's more of a tight end. Not a slot guy But then also demarcus Robinson who was very effective in Kansas City system. I think there's a lot of speed slack is out there so if I were if I were General Manager would probably at the top of the market. Do their own thing. Because I don't want to overpay for top of the market I would then sign a slack. If I got a young quarterback here I would sign a guy for agency at a lower cost and then go out and get by number one in theory in the in the draft. So that's probably why those guys didn't make the top five and I would tend to agree with you. Who's your number four on this list number four Robbie Anderson Levin love and coming off that season with the New York jets My best fit for him is the New York jets Because Gosh they really if they lose him. I don't know what they're gonNA do at the receiver position. They absolutely have to upgrade even by keeping him. They need to upgrade to upgrade that offensive line as well but seven hundred seventy nine receiving yards last season. He'll be twenty seven this upcoming year if enough teams and and if the jets WANNA mess around with this Joe. Douglas wants to mess around with us. He has been In conversations with with Robbie Anderson's representation if some teens get involved here and this is taken care of at the very started illegal tampering window or before. The price could go up on Robbie Anderson because of his age because of his speed because of what he did last season and then you can start approaching. Fourteen fifteen million dollars per year. I think the jets absolutely have to knock this out early and if they mess this up in some way if they decide not to bring him back. I'm looking at a place that he could go to looking at the Philadelphia Eagles who obviously could always use a upgrade. Their I the interesting seeing there may be some overlap there but the eagles need help it wide receiver. But I hope probably Anderson's faculty jets. I kinda liked that idea and I do think. There's a little bit of like say the Shaw Jackson to his game. That's an insult to the Sean Jackson as fast as to Sean Jackson Robbie interesting could be more of a position. He's he's more of a like he's a bigger body type of guy but who also possesses that deep speed. That might be complementary for the other pieces that eagles have so. I don't hate that idea. If I don't know how Roseman takes a deep dive a free. Hd but he's got cast a bird so maybe it happens a May I ask your number three is and then I started to say Emmanuel Sanders is your third wideout. He is my third wide out. And it's really just because age. He's GONNA turn thirty three. Where do I have him? The obviously he's not going to be in San Francisco. I initially till depot the Carolina Panthers and I said the Carolina Panthers because I'm not entirely sure the panthers are convinced. Honesty Smith is not convinced that they have a number one wide receiver they have DJ more. They have Curtis Sam. You hope that. Dj More is going to be that but what they seem to be lacking. Is that fantastic veteran presence in there and after I spent a lot of time will in the month of January with the San Francisco. Forty niners covering their postseason games. What I learned from a depot Samuel from kindred born was just how much manual sanders mentor. Those guys those young group of players coming up and how they were able to really improve their game early in their career after the trade for manual. Sanderson San Francisco did so I look at a team like the Carolina Panthers and I say. Oh those young guys could really benefit from a guy like Emmanuel Sanders however Emmanuel Sanders is kind of like Andrei Dala in in that like he elite should and probably only wants to play for a championship. Contender right. He's been with. The broncos just went to another super bowl and so we're talking about contenders we're talking about teams that need wide receivers. The New England Patriots is. They are trying to retain Tom Brady. That would be fantastic. Get sound radio. Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick said. Hey We got you Emmanuel Sanders and we got you this two or three year contract to finally finish your career in New England. What you say Tommy. Now that's great call. I think if you're the Patriots and this was the delicate line that they have to sort of walk with Tom Brady is. Can you go out into the mark like once we get to that noon at noon? It it's eleven fifty. Nine fifty nine on Monday can the Patriots manage in the span of about Let's see twelve thirty six hours. Thirty brought to us as a forty eight hours. Fifty two hours is probably right in fifty two hours. Can they manage to tamper their way into landing? Somebody like Mandal Sanders. Somebody like Hunter Henry and successfully like a- convinced Tom Brady to return if that's what they ultimately want their plan to be and if it is. I think that could be you know like. That's that's certainly a blueprint to having Tom. Brady back in New England. But I think you're going to have to get guys. Just beef up the receiving core for him if you want him to come back in my opinion all right the last two guys in this list that they're going to be the same for everybody. You could flip them if you want to Depending on your opinion of home and away splits for one guy in age for the other guy number two guy. Aj greed number. One Guy. Maury Cooper I beast I mean these are the first of all. There's a chance either. Guide makes it the free agency or Cooper could get transitioned franchise tag the transition tag depending on the CBA depending on what happens attack. Prescott's contract AJ Green. It does sound like the bengals franchise tag him but he throws a fit and says he's going to refuse to play for him then. Maybe that doesn't happen. What led you to stack these guys in this particular way. Jj Yes so I have AJ green at number two. Only because of agent injury concerns that He has missed something. Like twenty four the past twenty five games that the bengals have played due to injury So that is my issue with him. Amari Cooper last. We saw him was not getting the ball thrown as much his way as should have certainly against the Philadelphia Eagles. I felt that he still has it. Obviously he's young much younger than Aj. Green who I believe is turning thirty two this year. Amari Cooper is currently twenty five. He will be twenty six before the start of the season so If a Jake Reed were healthy he would be my number one with a bullet. No doubt about it on about his health and then So in terms of fits right We believe that. Aj agrees with the bengals eight. We'll extend the franchise tag if they do not then. I think that we can reignite the does job want to go to Cincinnati rumors and so just for the sake of argument. I through the raiders in there as a landing spot for A. J. Green. But of course I'm not putting too much effort into A. J. Green out to one of the thirty one other teams. He's going to Cincinnati. As far as Mark Cooper. I had no idea how the San Francisco Forty niners would do it in terms of contract and money but I have cooper going to the forty niners if he does not end up with the cowboys but again. They're the cowboys to do. Everything they can. To Keep Amari Cooper traded a first round pick for. It made a lot of sense. Not Not immediately when they made the trade form right.
Tear gas shot by Turkey and Greece over migrants at border
"Now for over a week Greece and Turkey have been locked in an acrimonious standoff since Ankara announced it will no longer prevent migrants crossing to the European Union Greece's vowed not to let migrants in its Coast Guard boats have forced migrant dinghies back at sea and have fired warning shots Greece's prime minister has said that Turkey has orchestrated the crisis and he's using the migrants as political pawns Turkey accuses Greece of endangering lives and violating international law on asylum at the border town of Kasur niece they have been further clashes Turkish forces fired tear gas across the border Greece security forces responded with tear gas of their own and water cannons this in a bid to stop migrants from crossing and then late last night fire ripped through a refugee shelter on the Greek island of Lesbos this was a school for refugee children located inside the same compound on the line is the Arab Israeli journalist Lucy Harish she spent some time at that school only a few weeks ago Lucy good morning welcome good morning Julian thank you for having me what are you hearing about the events of that school in the last twelve hours or so well basically what god I've heard in the last twelve hours is that the police are still investigating double deliberate to ours and that occurred in the school and we have to understand the what happened on the island on Lesvos island which has been let's say then like everybody were in one way or another looking that this is going to happen I think that clashes when I was there few few weeks ago clashes occurred between locals and between extreme right activists that came in today online and basically all the NGOs spoke had a big meeting a few weeks ago with the E. U. and they explained very delicate situation that they're in so I think that in one way or another everybody were expecting that something like that will happen just just give a bit of context about because clearly nobody's going to justify the violence that's going on here our system numbers I mean when it when you look at the numbers of people arriving compared with the number of people who live on less boss most of the time he's he's a strikingly dramatically different number that is why there is exactly this is the point this is the exact point that we need to focus on because I not in last boss and not this specific part of the island there is a refugee camp Moria refugee camp where refugee camp was built originally for three hundred three thousand four hundred people right now it contains twenty three thousand people so we're talking that the locals are that are living in Lesvos are twenty seven thousand people so basically we're talking about the same amount of refugees compared like the same amount of people were living in Greece so I think that the clashes were or something that everybody were expecting and and I understand like you know like you said we're not of course are talking or about this specific violence but we need to understand that that was something that everybody were knew that it's going to happen and that for me you know the school was a ray of light for the refugees this school basically contains two hundred and fifty students are the school operates from the morning until the evening and the morning they're giving like Moore told our people work to to study all language and in the afternoon hours are around one hundred and eighty children refugee children are coming to school and studying in their own language some of them are studying Arabic some of them studying in Farsi some of them are studying in friend told by the refugees prism yes and taught by fellow refugees this school was built originally by the youth movement official match that you're Israeli youth movements with a child the Israeli Arab youth movement out three years ago so it was originally built like into classes they went out they decided that they need to do something as rally youngsters decided that they need to do something they went out to Lesbos and they originally wanted to stay there for three months R. three months we came out a year and a year became three years now they had I think they had they had nine classes everything every single thing is totally burned down and I have to tell you that this rips my heart because I don't understand how if this was a deliberate action I don't understand how someone can actually come and hurt and burned a community center and a school for children you know and the last two years aha the the unfortunate situation is that what you're seeing that of course the Europeans are Europe and and and the international community is basically standing aside with everything that is happening with the refugee crisis I don't want to even start talking about the Arab countries and the Arab leadership because the Arab countries didn't open their doors to the refugees coming from Syria what is happening lately with us out with that the last one varmints that we saw on the news and everything that is happening in Syria will make this crisis even bigger and you seen the Arab countries and the Arab leadership standing aside for the people who are in the school it is very important for them and that's for the teachers and that the that the older daughter the people were managing the school it's very important for them to pass the message that they stand without solidarity with the people of Greece because if we are like you said this is not the problem of Greece this is not the problem of of of of Europe but at the end of the day we need to find a solution to these people worse sitting and and don't have anything and waiting for something to happen and you know saying the few years ago I think it was two years ago that the E. U. R. declared that the refugee crisis and it and it's not if you are walking in the refugee camp Maury in Lesbos you don't see human beings you see shadows of human beings you see people that don't have hope you see people that don't have anything people that are literally living in the garbage and I think yes not forgive me the passion that you feel on the subject comes through loud and clear and we were talking about the politics of it in in some detail earlier on the program I very much appreciate you coming on and telling us the story of that school and I'm sorry it's in the circumstances of these Arab Israeli journalist and Lucy a harsh on events on Lesbos as they've emerged in the last twelve hours or
Voice Technology in Healthcare Book Launch
"The book first of all is divided into four main sections. I should also mention if you want to get access to the book or get more about it. You can always go to voice. I health dot com slash book. And there I've got lots of about it. That's also where you'll be able to access Links to order the book if you decide to do so and so on so again we have designed the book to really be made up of four main sections and in doing so we wanted to think about the different main areas that would make sense really to have this type of format and section one is made up of four different chapters It is an introduction to voice technology so these chapters really form the fundamental the basis for some underlying key concepts that really are relevant to the rest of the book and so yes these introduce some of the key concepts of voice technology in healthcare. Now if we dive into that section. I can tell you a little bit about the chapters and the people that are contributing in these chapters. The first chapter. I'm I'm very honored to say was written by myself. And it really looks at an overview of voice. Why is voice such an important Concept now when it comes to healthcare technology why I feel this is going to completely transform healthcare. Why believe that voice is actually the next operating system the video s and get into different types of communication and then I lay the groundwork for different use cases which of course are explored in more detail throughout the rest of the book the second chapter is by Atlanta ear. You may have heard her speak if you've gone to the voice of Healthcare Summit over the past couple of years. She was a keynote speaker there a few years ago and she is truly one of the World foremost experts on design voice. User interface design. And how it applies to healthcare and we put this early in the book because we really wanted to keep this in mind for all the readers when they are looking at some ideas and how best to design voice applications because the user interface design is so critical and so Atlanta's chapter is here at the The outside of the book as well the next chapter which we feel also is critical to designing good a voice experience. Healthcare is one by Audrey are beanie. She is the CEO and founder of audio brain and her chapter is entitled the Science Behind. Sonic branding how audio can create better patient caregiver and healthcare provider outcomes. And I'm really pleased to actually have a clip from you're you're just describing a little bit about her chapter so here is Audrey are beanie. Hi I'm Maury are beanie. I'm the founder.

I specialize in sonic branding at my firm audio brain and one of our passions is and we advocate for the use of music and sound to promote health and wellbeing in this chapter. I discussed my twenty five years of experience in working in the healthcare industry. We talk about how the brain processes music and Sadam why. It's the perfect tool for communicating and helping to heal and promote wellness with new technologies emerging. Sound is even more important than it ever was and really has a strong influence on patient outcomes. I discussed some of the projects that we've worked on and the history of the industry and where it's headed in the future.

Thank you very much to audrey for those comments fantastic The next chapter is a really critical one as well that we thought fit really well at the outset of the book. And that of course is when we talk about voice. We also need to talk about privacy insecurity and so in this case we have nature lore From orbiter who wrote a chapter called secure voice in it is It's a great one It's all I can say. Really really critical information there. The second part of the book is another seven chapters and this is looking at voice technology and the patient experience and so here we have quite a few authors that have had experience with creating these voice applications and how seeing how it impacts patients some of these chapters include chapter five automated virtual caregiving using voice for services proactive personalized holistic. Twenty four seven and affordable. This is by Stuart Patterson from lifeblood then we have a really interesting chapter by Dave Kemp on voice and wearables and that and how that's going to affect the the Patient then we have another fascinating chapter by Rupa Patel. This is on synthetic voices for healthcare applications. Rupel is doing some amazing work looking at how you can create voices for for brands but also in the medical field. How can you create a voice for somebody that may be losing their voice? It's really really powerful. The next two chapters are edited versions of podcasts interviews. That took place here on this podcast voice I health we wanted to incorporate some of these interviews into the book as well touring to bring a real personal aspect to the To the narratives that you are reading and so as I said we have two chapters here coming up next Chapter Eight is voice. I health interview a diabetes. Care plans with an wiler. She actually won an award for her diabetes Alexa Skill and then chapter nine is entitled Voice I health interview Alexis skills for pediatrics. And we have Devon Nadar Speaking about some of her experiences with creating some skills specifically for pedes then we have a very interesting chapter by Robin Christoffersen. And it's called the rapid rise of voice technology and it's awesome power to empower. This is all about accessibility and Wonderful wonderful addition. And I do have a short clip here from Robin. Speaking about his chapter. So here is a Robin Christoffersen. My name is Robyn Christopherson. I'm head of digital inclusion at UK technology and disability charity ability net. I wrote chapter about how the Echo and voice first technologies more. Broadly represent a fantastic opportunity for people with disabilities. I've been lucky enough to be working in this area of technology and disability for the last twenty five years and health is incredibly important so read the chapter and learn about how voice first technologies are being used in so many different ways to help people live more productive healthier happier. Mo fulfilling lies. That's wonderful. And I love those comments from Robin so you can get a little taste of what that chapter is all about The next chapter is chapter eleven. And it's entitled an overview of Voice Technology and healthcare and is really by a team of authors from a Macadamia Technologies And they have been real leaders in the voice for space as well. So it's a it's wonderful to have them part of the book. The third section is next and this third section is called voice technology and the provider experience. Now go from you're describing. What the patient will experience were is experiencing with voice technology. And now we tackle what be provider is experience is experiencing and the first chapter is chapter twelve in this section and it's Mayo Clinic. Patient centered innovation driven. And this is written by a team at Mayo Clinic including a Doctor San Pruthi. Who's one of the cover authors of the book so Again a very very well written and excellent chapter chapter thirteen we get to another a voice L. Interview Voice Technology for behavioral changes. And in this chapter I speak with Dr Mattson Boesky. Who was on the PODCAST? Awhile back and he talks about his experiences about how we can use voice technology to really influence positive behavioral changes and hopefully this results in positive health outcomes. Now the next chapter chapter fourteen is called the laws of voice. This is critical to us in the healthcare. Space looking at implementing. Voice Technologies because. This is such an early early industry when it comes to voice technology healthcare that there are a lot of questions right now and we have to lawyers heather dealer and Bianca Phillips who we are very fortunate to have as a contributor to the book who outlined some of the questions. Some of the concerns in this regard and Bianca has Been Gracious enough to provide us with a clip for her as well alenquer chapter so here is Bianca Phillips Phillips I'm a lawyer with research expertise in medical law and digital helpful and they coordinate at Elektra of legal process methods and institutions in the.

Reparations In New Zealand
"We start recording okay. Still it Mavis. Mullins started her career in in sheep bond in New Zealand. Her job was degrade the quality of wool. I loved it and war was such a beautiful natural fiber. It's actually a protein. Mavis is now one of New Zealand's most powerful will magnates. Her company handles a million sheep a year. Yeah Mavis is involved with all kinds of boards and trusts and a big part of her life. Is Hotel Rooms. Taxi CABS FREQUENT FLYER LOUNGES. Although initially she was a bit shy about that. Frequent Flyer status. I don't want to expose myself. Actually you saw. Of course there's nothing hidden. I am an elite gold club member and proud of it and I just want to point out that you can hear and Mavis this fundamental paradox of being New Zealander like myself. It's basically into us that we never spice to Brag but we're also meant to always tell it like it is and I find that really hard myself may mullins on the other. Hand is unusually deft. This she has this disarming honesty that let's just cut to the chase about anything and you you will like her even more. It has made her a great negotiator. Her friends know this about her her business associates and apparently her cousin because one day Mavis was on a trip to New Zealand's capital city. Which you just happened to run into this cousin. Eliza in Wellington we passed in the street and he said to me stop. Anita have coffee with your cousin wasn't just grabs you and pulls you into a coffee shop. Yeah that's how it started. Mavis knew it was about to come and to some degree had been actively avoiding very conversation. May this is Maree an indigenous New Zealander and she knew that her tribe was scheduled to sit down with the government for one of the most important negotiations in. Its history and negotiation for reparations. The more accurate word for tribe in New Zealand is e we May Miss E. We have been working towards this reparations movement for decades and at this surprise coffee meeting may cousin essentially was saying we need you Mavis. We need you to drop some of that jet set business life and come help the tribe come help. The every politics isn't always very pleasant. I'd rather be in business with the lines are pretty well drawn. So it's it's just a whole different ballgame. Did you say I'll think about it? I said I'll talk to you later. Wise Move Below. Welcome to planet money. I'm Kenny Malone and I'm Daria Moods the story of Zealand is unfortunately familiar. The country had an indigenous population was colonized by Europeans.

Government has spent billions of dollars to build a system to address those unthinkable. Wrong and to try and actually pay for them today on the show we head to New Zealand to see how it works and to hear what it's like to put a price on history. We ask Mavis mullets.

Her Grandma was able to just collect ingredients from the forest poultices and potions things like that where you like now. I don't want to drink that. Grandma was it would you? You didn't really have too much of a choice. You sit down and have this this'll help your tummy for Mavis. Ancestors way back. The forest was everything but then the European settlers came F. I just a handful of settlers who wanted to tear down some of the forest to farm. Sheep Mavis Z. We figured great. We can charge these settlers rent. They'll tear down some trees in some small plots but the we can preserve the rest of the forest but then the New Zealand government got involved after a series of bad deals unfulfilled promises outright deception by the colonial government almost all of the ease land ended up in the hands of white settlers and within just one generation. Mavis his ancestors went from being landlords. Four the white settlers to being there laborers their farm workers and sheep shares because of their own government. Wow just happened so quick. Without regard you would not good partners. We're not sincere. You're not true Be Nice to have you say sorry. Damage Mavis ancestors had gotten everything from this vast swath of forest and almost all of that forest was chopped down when the land was sold to white settlers. In fact there's really only one big chunk remaining now. Who is all? That's really lift of the forest. This is the last real remnant. That's an one pace. Fukuhara is the last real place where Mavis can go to see and feel and hear what our ancestors would have experienced but infuriatingly it was no longer controlled by Mavis E. We Pukhov fell into government ownership and to add insult to injury for all of us as life New Zealand. Maps did not use the name Puka. Mount Price was mount. Brace Mount Bruce and nobody seems to know exactly who bruce was or why Polka got changed to mount. Bruce certainly wasn't because it sounded better Pakeha. It sounds like a booed cool doesn't polka whereas mount. Bruce. Kinda doesn't have that same that I'm beautiful flow to us. Yeah now all of the history from the renaming of Puka to the mass transfer of land. This is not necessarily something that may this new in its entirety. All of this came together during the first stage of New Zealand's reparations process effect finding tribunal mimics witnesses. Promo ploy is audio is from Davis Tribunal. And there were hundreds of hours of testimony at this from regular we members including Mavis. His Dad Kimba shop and from land surveyors and historians land has demoralizing influence on the and also from legal experts for Mavis Z. Y. Which by the way is named Danny are? After months of testimony tribunal officials pulled together a single exhaustive history of how the government betrayed. Mavis his ancestors that history is a thousand pages long and covering all? The real truth was just devastating. Just how ruthless heartless and fast it was versions of the same story happened all over New Zealand. Maury make up about sixteen percent of the country's population now and they're about one hundred Mauri tribal groupings in New Zealand. Each could have their own one thousand page. History of betrayal Mavis is Maury experienced kind of social and economic shock that gets inherited generation after generation. I wish I could say that. It wasn't but it is it. Has It has multiplied. Mahdi more likely to die. Young Mario more likely to heavily. Cg -CATION Maria more than fifty percent of the population of prisons. The homeless these people that I grew up
Algorithmic Injustices: Towards a Relational Ethics with Abeba Birhane
"Welcome to the Tuomo. Ai podcasts thank you so much for having me Sam. I'm really excited about this conversation. We had an opportunity to meet in person After a long while interacting on twitter at the most recent NRA conference in particular the black workshop. Where you not only presented your paper. Algorithm ick injustices toward a relational ethics Best Paper there and so. I'm looking forward to digging into that and some other topics but before we do that I would love to hear you kind of share a little bit about your background and I will mention for folks that are hearing the sirens in the background. While I mentioned that you are from University College Dublin. You happen to be in New York now at the ES Conference in association with AAA I and As folks might know it's hard to avoid sirens and construction in New York City so Just consider that background are mood mood. Ambience background sounds. Cosso your yes. How did you get started working in a ethics so my background is a cognitive science and particularly a part of cognitive science cord embodied cognitive science? Which is which has ruled. Seen A in cybernetics in thinking. The idea is to focus on on the on the social on the cultural on the historic In kind of view cooperation in continuity with the warrant with with historical background in that in as opposed to you know your your traditional approach to cognitive which just rates combination as something located in the brain or something formality. Something that can be computed so yet. So that's my background. Even during my master's I lean towards the AI. Ice I'd of Koebnick science the more I dave into it the more I much more attracted to the to the site to injustices to the social issues. And so the more deputy goes on the more. I find myself in the that they takes site. Was there a particular point that you realize that you're really excited about the ethics part in particular or did it just evolve for you? I think it just evolved. So when I started out at the end of my master's in at the start of the day my idea is that you know we have this new relatively new school at thing way of thinking which is imported Kokusai which I quite like very much because eighteen sizes you know ambiguous eighties in Messina and contingencies. As opposed to you know drawing create Clean Boundaries and so the idea is yes. I liked the idea of redefining competition. As something relational something inherently social and some think that is continually impacted in influenced by as our people ended the technologies. We use so the technology aspects. The technology end was my so initially. The idea is yes. Technology is constitutes aspect of aspect of article. You'll help the famous nineteen ninety eight thesis spy and Clark in the John Muir steak standard mind where they claimed in. The iphone is an extension of your mind so you can think of it that way and I was kind of advancing the same line of coats but the more identity into it the more I so yes ditch technology with its you know computing such as face recognition systems on the streets or your phone wherever yes it does. Impact in the does continually shape in reshape. Our mission in what it means to exist in the warrant. But what became more and more clear to me is that not everybody's impacted equally a the more privileged. You are the the more in control of at you are as to what can influence you end what you can avoid. So that's where I become more and more involved with the attic solve computation and its impact on cognition. The notion of privilege is something that flows throughout the work that you've presented at blackened. Ai Our make injustices paper and this idea. This construct of relational ethics what is relational ethics. And what are you getting at with it? Yeah so relational ethics is actually not a new thing. A A lot of people have terrorized about it and I have written about it but the the way I'm approaching it the way I'm using it is. It's I guess he kind of springs from at this restauration that for many folks who talk about ethics or or fairness or justice most of it comes down to constructing these needs formulation of fairness or at mathematical calculation of who should be included and Who SHOULD BE EXCLUDED? What kind of do we need that sort of stuff? So for me relational ethics is kind of. Let's let's leave that for a little bit late. Zoom out and see the bigger picture and instead of using technology to solve the problem stats emerged from Technology Self. So which which means censoring technology late instead center the people that are people `specially people that are disproportionately impacted by the limitations or the problems that arise with the development and implementation of Technology. So at there is a robust Research in economic fairness or go to speak injustice and the the pattern. Is that the more you are at the at the bottom of the intersection level. That missed further away from you are from you. Know your stereotypical White Sis. Gender made the more the bigger the negative impacts are on you ways there it's a classification or categorization or whether it's being scaled in scored for by hiring algorithms or looking for housing or anything like that at that the Maury move away from that stereotypical category status score the more. The HABE that they embarked his own use. So the idea of relational ethics is kind of to to to take from that perspective to to take that as a starting point so these are the groups are these are the individuals that are an much more likely to be acted so in order to put them at at advantage or in order to protect their welfare. What do we need to do? So the it's died is to start from there and then ask for wishing instead of saying here we have this technology or we have these Saito Algorithms constellations. How do we apply them? Or how do we then use them to to you? Know for Beta or a fair outcome and sometimes the answer you arrive at. Is that a particular technology. Shouldn't exist in a given form. Yeah right exactly exactly. So I think one of the downsides of an obsessively working on and some matrices or some equations on fairness is that you forgot. Forget to ask in the first place do we. Should we even do this in the first place and I think some people have articulated this really? Well you can think of this. In terms of that you know face recognition systems that are becoming very normalized in common spatial in the states. Do you feed at your face. Recognition Algorithms with diverse data in order. So that it recognizes everybody equally or do you stop and think do we actually need face recognition systems in the first place.
NBA championship odds: Lakers still lead pack despite quiet trade deadline; Clippers improve chances
"Did you make of the two teams? How do you feel about them currently? Wow Oh well I I I I stand by. I think the clippers have long time then the favorites. I think the way that the Lakers have played This season and how they've consistently consistently performed Dwight Howard has been a pleasant surprise. I think Kyle Kuzma with the injury to start off the season. He he hasn't really gun the things that they would like. These are very good contributor. But I think that the clippers with all the management and and Paul George Missing Time and some Injuries and you look at where they are there. Second Right now and for me. I think that the clippers are the best team right are they. Are the team that come at at the end of the day you're going to have to go through in order to try and win a championship. Even though the Lakers have the best record and it looks like the Lakers are GonNa have home court At at this point in time if it were to start today I still feel like you know the clippers. The team that you're GONNA have to be in order to win the whole thing Richard. How all surprising that? The rockets decided to go full monty. There Bison not only are we gonNA run small lineups. We won't even carry a gun on the roster who would allow us to run any sort of other type lineups. Well it's a at this point in time. If you look at Dantonio you look at Dell Maury winter. We've we've had they not gone all in on whatever they believe right. What do they have to lose? They've been criticized up and down and make pulled off some pretty impressive trade getting in Chris. Paul getting in Russell Westbrook. They've done some really really good things to pair With with James Harden James Harden continuingly improved his offense of game. But it's like I'm not surprised anymore. It's like they look at their team. And they're like the way we're structured right now. We're probably up for a first or second round loss What can we do to really shocked at? How can we try and change things up? And they made them moved. ooh They believed that adding Covington and giving up Cappella and they just WanNa go all small ball kind of like what you would see from the Golden State Warriors for for a time So I'm not surprised by it. I think that you know everyone out. There is fighting for their job. I think Daryl Morey I think I think You look at Dan Tony think these guys are low key fighting for their jobs so if they know that first or second round loss possibly could be the end to their tenure. So why not try and go all whatever you believe. Richard Jefferson hanging out with this year. Makes you check them out today. Five o'clock Indiana Toronto. ESPN mean is also in studio with us as well by the way. You're listening to Los Angeles. So Richard Let me ask you this about what Brian said yesterday specifically in regards to that game like he he kind of talked about their lack of focus on defense. Where do you think the Lakers can get better on defense? Can they do it. Internally you have again you have some talented players and I. I always proceed very cautiously when you have a game like that and everyone wants to run and talk about it and break it down like look Russell. Westbrook had a great great game. Houston shot the ball extremely well if you send shot the ball like that against anybody on any given night. They're going to win that game Even Dan Tony said in his interview. He's like hey I understand what we're doing is different It all has to do with whether or not these guys will buy in and tonight was a big step that they would have gone out and got him blasted in a D had forty five right an twenty six against them. Everybody in that Houston Rocket Locker. Room would be questioning. What's what's going on? They would be getting murdered by the media. It would be going crazy but they were fortunate to get that win in La which very hard place to play and now. Everyone's questioning the Lakers. Well look I believe this. I believe that the Lakers are great regular season team. I think that last night they should've stayed with the White Howard. You can't Anthony Davis if there's a difference between being like having your numbers be dominant and actually being dominant and physically dominant. Anthony Davis just. Wasn't that Anthony. Davis Davis is not an again. I hate to talk about. What player isn't because he is a million great in every anybody would want them on their team but he's not a guy that just going to low post blocks doc band you up and then go and shoot a five-foot Hook shot and don't because he worked position that's why he runs the floor so well so he can get that early early post up in a great position and it's harder to guard but in the postseason when it becomes half court basketball? That's what the Houston Rockets are depending on when it becomes a half half halfcourt basketball game and they can spread it out and just have Russell James go to work and kick it out to more shooters so everyone had their theory. It's just a matter of WHO's going to be able to impose their will Richard One of the things that That's happening for the Lakers. This year is that when Lebron plays the offense is is tremendous right there. They're one of the best offensive teams out there. But when he doesn't play when he's not on the floor I should say that offense becomes very anemic even when Anthony Davis was an. MVP candidate in his own right is on the floor. And it reminded me of the years in In Cleveland the three years that Love Irving and and Lebron were together. When Lebron didn't play that team wasn't just not a great team not wasn't just a below five hundred they were awful and given that you've been on the inside you've been on a Lebron James Team? Can you explain to me how that is. How talented players? Once you remove this one guy turned into a bad basketball team. I think it's it's style of play. It's continuity I think that's something that it's it's weird because Lebron James is always you typically been healthy. She's always played in seventy five or more games except for last year due to the groin injury. So it's like this is the guy that each up eighty ninety percent of like court time. So you're what what you're really referencing is like non-core time and even then comes the postseason. This is a man that's going to go from playing thirty seven minutes a night thirty eight. He's going to go up to like forty three forty four minutes a night. 'cause there's no bags and there's no practices for most of his energies just using games. So what you're really talking about is how do you play Good Basketball for eight to ten minutes in it for twelve minutes and that can be tough to find that continuity. It's tough because it's such a small sample size right and yes it's a small. It's a large sample size is when you look at how often it happens. But it's very very difficult for coaches to be like how we're GONNA play for this ten to twelve minutes when the broncos out of the game because when he's in the game everything's everything's perfect. Everything's runs great room and I think that's the challenge. The coaches have a lot of people are talking about Darren. Collison coming in and then interrogating him bats. That's the challenge and it's and it's been a long time. The bron James Challenge is how do we play that 'cause they had with Kyrie Kyrie is a great score but it's like when Bronco go out of the game game that was an opportunity for Kyrie to really explore and really play his game and get his rhythm will Kyrie's rhythm might not necessarily be the rhythm for the the other guys on the court and I thought knock on Kyrie. If just like broad had the ball handed Kyrie was basically a two guard. Then Kai Bronco Ga.. The game in Cairo would become the point guard. But this was an opportunity to get going scoring and maybe throw the ball into Kevin Love. which when you had the surrounding guys there wasn't an offense? There wasn't a continuity beauty for us to play through so there's good still Lebron and there's challenges to Lebron. I wouldn't even call that bad but I think this final stretch is going to be key but understand. He's going to play more minutes in the postseason. So you can't really say like hey we need to figure out what we're GONNA do when he's out of the game because that's just realistically he's going to be in the game Ormeau. Richard Jefferson with this year on the Sodano show on ESPN. This actually leads perfectly into my next question. This is good chemistry right here. These three guys. So Rondo they have Rondo. Problem is a net negative player. He's been that for seven seasons now but to a means point it falls off a cliff. He's usually usually the guy that has to lead that second unit. I don't think they can afford to play him anymore. To be honest with you what do you do if you do agree with me. What do you do with Ronda how do you how do you manage? Rondo at this point Well I I think there's there's two components there's an on the court and then there's a locker room right. There's a locker component and it's like a like say what you want about Rondo. He's a very dynamic guy on and off the court so you WanNa make sure that Rondo understands what your is your team goals are. I think Rondo is in a very different space. And he was years and years ago whether it was in Dallas when I played with them or leaving Boston I think Rondos one of those guys that in this moment right here they need to find. I I think that's Darren Collison being. It's so big the need to find one more guy that can compliment that second unit And so yes do but you gotta look at what can you do. He's a net negative guy adding Rondo very very rare. But no one really questions Kenney still play is he's still a contributor when you're just looking at the second unit and when I tell you that the six years prior that's one thing this year I I mentioned it early.
Ellen Bass Reads Frank X. Gaspar
"My guest today is Ellen Bass a chancellor of the Academy of American poets. She's received a lambda literary award for poetry. The Pablo Neruda Prize for poetry and fellowships from the California Arts Council and the National Endowment for the arts. Welcome Ellen thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for inviting me. I'm delighted to be here so the poem Eve decided to read for us is co hogs by frank x Gaspar. Can you tell us why this particular poll cut your attention. John as you're looking through the archives. I love this song for many reasons. One of them is it's so primal it so visceral. It brings us into one of the most basic human experiences and I feel like I'm having that experience experience when I read the poem. Then I should say just in case people aren't familiar The title is co hogs and Co hogs. If you don't know our large clams excellent Let's hear the poem this is Ellen Bass Reading Co hogs by frank x Gaspar Co Hawks. It was for the wind as much as anything. It was for the tidal flats for the miles of bars and the freezing raising runs between them. Blue and darkened in the withering gusts for the buckets for the longtime friend rakes for our skin burning and the bones beneath all their ache for the bent backs for the huddle toward warmth beneath are incapable incapable layers. How we beat ourselves with our arms the breath we blew the narrow steam that spun away? How we we searched there till drag all marks then the feel of them as we furrowed then it was surgery and forced together like Stones Stones Opel or Pearl or plain rock ugly except they were beautiful their worlds and purple stains pains the Bucket Swire cutting with their weight for the sky? Blazing it's sinking. Orange fire for the skies is black streaks with night rising winter sudden back sure word home the tide creeping like a wolf both for the little stove warming is own orange. Fire the old pot. The steam the air and savor the close room the precious butter. The blue fingers throbbing. Our bodies in all the customs of weariness the supper succulent of the freezing dark. See come up and hunger its own happiness its own domain immeasureable insurable. It was for the hunger that was co hugs by frank x gas bar which originally appeared in the January eleven in two thousand sixteen issue of the magazine. So tell me more about this wonderful poem. I I was thinking when we're reading it in a it's worthy of note that you really capture. I think the rolling quality I mean it feels like one big breath but there's something also for me about poetry in that it's both a palm of of of discovery but also at home about poetry in some way about the making of poetry and ours. POETICA I'm so glad that you said that because the more I was reading being this poem and thinking about talking here. That's exactly on my notes. I wrote down ars POETICA. It does feel exactly like like that process of writing a poem of searching of describing and describing until you come to something thing that you didn't know you're going to come to exactly like that and I love the music of the poem the sound and Frank S bar is a a master of sound and really works through sound move. sapone forward through sound and that wonderful repetition of course of if it was four which is such a strange and wonderful way to start this poem. Right Right You know it was for the wind as as much as anything. What where we're in radiantly immediately in the experience and The way that that repetition just drives the poem forward and has that force of moving through the music of the poem. I love so much and I love I love how primal this poem is. This is something people have been doing for a thousand years more. I don't know how long Colonia exactly and The maury read the poem. The more I think about how. It's a poem without judgment That there's adversity here. They're called and then they're hungry and there's a we in the poem. I'll just stop. He's not doing it alone. Hello I want to get to the we in a moment but came. Yeah so somebody else might think I love doing this. I hate doing this but he is beyond judgment in this poem. It's it's deeply rooted in the world and I think that really works with the ours. POETICA too because that's what we're trying to do in poetry is to get it more or at least what I'm trying to do. Get get more deeply rooted into the experience into the world and see then what we discover cover and it made me think of Galway canals line Whatever what is is is what I want? What and I feel that in this poem that he just wants it all that wonderful line? I love that line about the ugly about as literally what I underline here ugly except beautiful yes worlds and Purple Stains S. Oh and that to me is like so much experience. which we you know poetry were? You're talking a little bit and this poem is a little bit about poetry's four and one thing is to talk talk about that line Often the things that fascinated us sublime rides that line and poetry is able to you of course name things that we might otherwise miss or or dismiss As worthy of note. So what about this. We I mean. Obviously it's all of us but warm but what is there a specific we feel. I mean it's probably his family or he and you know his cohorts but is is a communal way and that feels so primal to you know. I can't imagine that a thousand years ago people didn't do this together So often we don't experience it because we eat alone or in our little Oh boxes or houses or places or wherever if we're fortunate enough to have such but he he's letting you know the the Labor that goes into achieving. What is this kind of brief? Gloria the end our bodies in all the customs of weariness. Yeah I mean that's a great phrase. I Know Supper are sucked out of the freezing Darcy. Come up and I love how once they get into the warm kitchen with the steam and the stove in the close room that the freezing dark see is introduced. It's it's brought into the warm warm and there's so many of these Opposites that are connected you know. There's the steam in the beginning of his breath and then in the end the steam in the room room and then he repeats. That are arranged. Fire you know I. It's the sinking orange fire of the sun going down and then it's the little stove warming its own orange fire so the outside and the inside are so connected in this poem and the part that really makes me think about poetry is when he says then it was surgery and forced together

Lawrence Weschler: And How Are You, Dr. Sacks?: A Biographical Memoir of Oliver Sacks
"Today I have a special guest his name. He's been on the show before is Lawrence Weschler. He's writing a book about someone else who's been on the show fight a few times. That's Oliver Sacks. Oliver one of my favorite guests and I had the excitement of learning that he was one of Lawrence. Weschler 's coasts Closest Friends Godfather to Lawrence. Wash lers daughter Sara. Yes yes. Of course you're going to want to read Oliver Sexes owned autobiographical writings. But you will learn something both about friendship and the interaction of two minds that in thirty years I never really parted company. They were talking constantly and at a time when we're forgetting what it's like to have friends that you don't fight with without making up within twenty hours. Think of all the people you'd stop. Stop being able to talk to Gore Vidal or Norman Mailer Susan Santen. And they're they are Lawrence Weschler my guest and end the great neuro physician. What did he call himself? He called himself a clinical oncologists. What did we? We used to go on rounds. Rounds Ed Ed We would be dry in those days. This is back in the early eighties and by the way it's with knowing that the when I I was getting hanging out with him I'm in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine hundred eighty one. He was largely unknown. AWAKENINGS had come out but nobody had read it ten years after it had been published in Nineteen in seventy three. I interviewed the publisher in England. Colin Hay craft the first edition had been fifteen hundred copies and they had not yet sold out. I mean it's it's amazing but anyway the point is we would go on on rounds and he in those days was and pretty much through his life was mainly going institutions and poor houses and so forth you will gospels. They were status poor houses. They were you know places where people are warehouse where he specialized it you know. And and he said that's where where the jewels are. You know you have all the time in the world. Nobody's expecting anything but any case So he would be driving between them and what you know I think of myself as a clinical oncologists apologist you know analogy is the philosophy of being. You know what. Why is there something rather than nothing and so forth? And he said my I am somebody for whom the diagnostic diagnostic question of the kinds of people I see is how are you. How do you be? What is it like to be you and here we are? This is the title of the book. And how are you Dr Sour you doctors and it's an autobiographical memoir memoir and my guests. Lawrence Weschler is a specialist in the creation of what he calls writer writer Louis Nonfiction. Which I think you know we've discussed on the show in the past literary nonfiction what what I call readily nonfiction is non-fiction in which the writing matters you right if the reading matter and you read the writing mattered? That's my definition. You do classes. Yes you teams this and you see I knew Ren Weschler when he was a young man in Los Angeles Los Angeles was home. There were people like Carole Eastman who wrote five easy pieces who called US invaders. Jack Potter's she felt. We were here to to rob the natives of their do I used to see Lawrence Weschler in a bookstore called intellectuals and liars tires wonderful place who was a wonderful wonderful place once upon a time and not very long ago a bookstore was a place ice. Will you hung out. You sat around may be ready chapter of something you were considering buying where you crease the pages in the poetry books will you read it out loud. Everybody so I I met Lawrence Weschler and he'd written terrific things was it mostly for the weekly I would right. I was the only person who was awry. Loud right for both the L. A. Reader and the L. A.. Weekly the Qazir writing was so good and no Alan would turn you down and it was fascinating because he went off to New York not yet thirty years old. I had unwritten. I'd spent three or four years with Robert Irwin. The artist who was who was already then probably one of the top ten artisan America but the one who was least known because he never allowed his work to be photographed. He most of the work didn't exist anymore and and I had an occasion. Why that happened? And then I wrote a book based on the conversations nations and are manuscripts forgetting seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees was the title nine thousand nine hundred eighty. I had six or seven Rave Steve Rejections from all the New York publishers. All them saying they wanted my next book. But how could they be expected to publish a book on a California artist. That's that's nineteen eighty But I said at the New Yorker and it was accepted kind of over the transient which was extremely. You know lucky on I mean. I always say that he does that.

"Book the truth about your future. You'll find it in pretty much all of my books. In fact, the truth about money that lies about money. Ordinary people extraordinary wealth the new rules of money. You'll find this in all of my books, and here it is ready. Here we go number one diversification. A lot of folks structure their investing in an effort to pick the right stock get in what's hot get outta. What's not, and they are trying to move in and out of the markets trying to figure out what market to be in it. And it just is a fool's game recognize that there are I don't know sixteen eighteen major asset, classes and market sectors. You got stocks and bonds government securities real estate oil and gas natural resources foreign securities commodities. You've got precious metals. You've got minerals you've got timber. You've got exponential technologies. You've got all these major asset classes and market sectors instead of trying to pick which one to invest in invest in all of them extensive diversification giving you access to the financial marketplaces extensively as you. Can this way you're not making a big bet this way, you don't have to worry so sort of like a horse race? Instead of anyone anyone horse bet on every horse the more extensively you want to twelve eggs in twelve baskets. You don't have to worry about making a wrong decision because you'll be so well diversified. No one thing. We'll be able to do you in diversification is a much lower risk way to invest, and of course, no, one strategy can prevent losses or no strategy is guaranteed succeed. But let's face it. Maury spread out your money. The less likely anyone will ruin the whole thing. Right. So diversification is step number one. And the good news is you can do this very easily these days with mutual funds and exchange traded funds. Particularly ETF's ETF's are much lower in cost. Generally than antiquated retail mutual funds. They make their holdings much more disclosed a much more transparent on a much more frequent basis than typical mutual funds. Do you're going to have much lower expenses associated with them. And you'll be able to obtain access across the board. That's number one number two long term you need to plan to hold this diversified portfolio for years even decades as opposed to wondering what do I do today or tomorrow the next day? This is what happened yesterday the day before forget, it you just hold it for the long term and number three most important is rebalancing because if you start out to assets fifty fifty in each one of them will do better than another at any given moment, and suddenly you're fifty fifty or sixty forty or seventy thirty eight twenty and you're no longer diversified. Like, you started rebalancing takes your sixty forty portfolio and re balances it to fifty fifty. So that you don't end up with too much money anyone as a class.
