Former President Trump Visits Ohio
"All right, I got a bunch of other stuff I want to talk about. I want to give a shout out to president Trump. You know, I've been very critical of president Trump lately because he had he been doing a lot of shenanigans that I think is absolutely ridiculous and it's going to cost him the presidency in 2024. However, I really respect and appreciate what he did in Ohio. He went to east Palestine, Ohio, he flew in on his plane and he brought supplies to those people while dummy McDonnell DOM half dead falling up the stairs of Air Force One. I mean, we should be ashamed I was telling my wife this last night. How dare these people install a president that's that is that bad. I want to say all the stuff that I want to cuss and do all of these things to describe how I feel about President Biden, but I'm not going to do that 'cause I'm a Christian and I don't want to represent Jesus that way. However, I'm incredibly frustrated on a day to today basis. Thinking about how they screwed us and they put a half dead man in the office as the president.

"Believed rape is the most underreported Crime in our country and continues to be unfortunately but even though you created this movement with black women and girls in mind their voices have largely been left out of this discussion. Still this movement. Still this dialogue. Still you right this you right. Sexual violence doesn't discriminate but the response to it does so true. Why haven't we made the same space in the movement for black and brown women. Do you think. I think it's the same reason we discriminate across the board. I think racism is in cities. And i think that black women's pain black women's stories women of color stories are never prioritize and in fact sexual violence is such a. Is the way people talk about it in this country and think about it in this country. Think about even the white women that we have that we heard about in the beginning. We don't even hear about them anymore. We don't even hear about the if we're not here. White women's stories. You certainly hear about black women's stories. We don't talk about indigenous women. Indigenous women have the highest rate of sexual violence country and we act like they don't exist and so i think it is the story of america. It's the same story. If around every issue that we talk about our stories aren't prioritized. And so i have to make it a priority for myself to center our stories and the magical thing about that. Is that when you sent to the stories of black women and brown women of of of people who are pushed to the margins. Everybody everybody gets covered. The trickle down theory doesn't work. We know that you have to start with the least of these. And that's how you make sure everybody gets what they need about a decade ago you saw your rapist at a community event and he when you told your mom that he didn't even recognize you She replied he didn't recognize you because you turned out to be a smart beautiful accomplished woman despite him trying to take that from you and i know your mom's here today but can you tell us about that is hard because my mom is right here. It was. It was very difficult. I had only. I didn't tell my mother what happens. Meets i wanna go and my mother has hirolas protector. And i know she probably helpless in that moment to but i don't know that she even realized how much she helped me in that moment to say this is. This is not really what's important. What's important is what was important for me was that she saw me and she recognized me and i think that that's what so many survivors need. We need to be seen not. It's not about the perpetrator. I can't control him and what he does but being seen by my mother and being an knowledged as accomplished in spite of what he tried to still was just changed everything for me and it was just an important moment. Why included in a book. You know it's as we were sitting here. I think about one of the earliest parts of the color purple with ceiling. One first thing she's told. Is you ugly. And i remember. Remember we really may ask yourself all that and is somebody says onscreen through you. Ugly put it. It makes you feel a certain way. It has a visual effect on you. It just is extraordinary. I'm so glad you wrote this book. I'm so glad you came here. Please come back again. Come back and hang with us because we need to talk to you. Yeah yeah thank you for. New memoir is available right now and everybody in the audience. You're going home with a digital copy of this book. Plus we'll be right before we.

"How you think about analytics to me. It's about adding tied together to work We at salesforce. You know surprise you slack you to help tie all of that together but it's tool such as slack where you need to be able to have one to have trust you have to have a value. Trust pressure marketing organization that allows folks to not have to be in an office. You also need to create an environment of creativity. That is different when you can't be around the warning. What does that look like. And how do you leverage Jam or virtual whiteboards and create space for folks to have this still created conversation about how to approach the particular opportunity. And you have to have technology behind you that that allows for both work to happen but also for execution This marketing technology stack really comes into play in. How are you creating automation of your campaigns of your brita. Frost tying those together so that you have this just digital psycho for lack of a better turn. That really has collectively across all stakeholders. Would you know it's so funny thinking about this idea of like slack. First marketing I i've thought about. This is funny before salesforce acquired slack i was. I'd been kind of thinking about this for a little while. About how before they rolled out the feature where you could have like external teams in. So then you're like okay. My marketing team now can have all of our vendors in different channels that can all collaborate on this stuff now. Obviously there's new multiple way more phases than i know about that. You are working on with this. The that you're marketing team can live in slack and can communicate all that stuff. Their work with external people were creative back and forth can have those conversations single source of truth. All your information's in their searchable. This isn't an ad i just like. This is like literally how a mighty markets it's how our partners market and you feel like this is just how you do it right and so it's just it's interesting. How quickly something like that could shift. And i couldn't imagine going back to another right and now think about that shit right because if if you wanna talk to global marketing leaders two years ago maybe ten fifteen percent of them would said that their teams are are hybrid or remote i. Today fifty percent of them are saying they're going to be remote or hired. I what i love about this opportunity in this evolution for the marketing armenian is that we're in we're in phase zero like we're not even phase one yet. We're still notably zero. This'll thing and it's only going to get better in a impartial unbiased to slack all you the abc commercial disney owns us. Type thing like i'm partial to the whole slack. Bang but it's it's not about slack. It's about the connective. It's creating workflow for folks to not have to be in the same together to still have a tailored and productive experience to get their work done and to do it. In ways that Have much better efficiencies in acceleration time line yet and i think you know like you mentioned at the beginning the ability to get talent for anywhere the fact that we can have two people from westchester on this podcast. Right now and a person sitting in the area and a person sitting in In florida and all that stuff. It's just like you know. This is the sort of thing that i think marketers really want the most talented people working on their team. They don't care where they're from. You know some people wanna have have people in in a geographic location totally understand that and that's valid. If that's how you wanna run your team but there's a lot of marketers that want the best talent no matter where they're from and technologies enable that sorta stuff to happen on the other side of that. It's these marketing skills. Now that it's harder to develop some of those skills when you're not sitting next to a person in real time or may not beat. Maybe it's not as hard. It's not as familiar as as us. We don't we're not used to a yet. Leaders are definitely not used to leading remote even after doing this for a year. that's nowhere close to the previous. You know however many years we had to see him on this podcast work thirty three years in person at an office every day. And then now she's joining her motif. She's not ready for that right. It's it's hard that's crazy. Heart is hard. It's it's incredible to me. That people sometimes folks. I shouldn't did this over categorize this. It's it's hard that this has been hard for. Many people like we went from full human-to-human connectivity to zoom in a matter of milliseconds and then we got zoom fatigue. It's an hour trying to figure of the hybridization fatigue. Plus human connection can be again like really hard for folks to navigate through this into into with as much grace as i think so many people have done in. I don't know that were plotting ourselves as much as we should be. Further grace that has been displayed. Kinda universally on on these shifts that we've had to make so quickly for back to your skills conversation. Is i agree with you. There's a skills gap. Yes so so clearly so new type of marketers required. You know like we talked about. You know this isn't back in the day. Were sitting there writing a bunch of things on the whiteboard to figure out the phrase and then that's all over our marketing forever notes. I'm making billboards anymore. I mean we're maybe But that's not all we're doing And that's been obvious for some time you have to have like digital fluidity that you can use a bunch of different tools so the first issue is skills are changing super quickly. Second issue is training people's now totally different because it's remote and the marketing teams. You know we don't necessarily know where we need. People skilled up at any given time. So what is what is reskilling. Look like for marketing leaders for marketing teams. To me this is again. This amazing inflection point. That's that's an opportunity for everybody. I love this shifted marketers currently in. Because it's it's not just. The technology shifts the technologies in enabler underneath a lot of it but if he kinda look across a couple of categories marketers don't lack creativity. But they now need to rethink the way a creative environment will slide. And so how are we. How are we providing skills for how to be created in a remote first world so that that there. There's a skills gap in in many ways. It technology gap behind that. I think content. Marketing has just fundamentally shifted from content library to crude to the to the connective acting created. And then the connective back to like. I said the values create value conversation. Does your contents unique to who represent as an organization. I think this just this amazing opportunity there. We spent the budget time communication in in kind of how work remotely remote first communication is and then the two that i think are really interesting that that do have a big technology flair to them the whole data analytics conversation right. So if again if you go back to the whole notion of cd Ingesting data have you harmonize it. How do you unify it. How do you analyze it. Have you activated right like there's this whole notion of what a what are those motions. Look like it's it's not hard to go. Buy a cd. P it's really hard to figure out what your strategy is for using it bit that requires some some real deep thought in some cross functional skills that don't exist in the last time we spoke. I mentioned i was early days eloquent. I remember back then. Just trying to teach people with marketing automation was like and i feel like in the same kind of early adopter window up in a customer sneak this customer data on capability but at the same time. They might not know what to do with it once they get in. How do we help them. Build up the skill sets. And then i think there's this whole aspect of digital proficiency that is we are digital. I now like the world is winning digital first and we can sit there and say at you. Know it'll go back or things will normalize blah like we're digital. I like that's not. We bet that accelerate has happened. It's here in that. The teams the marketing teams. That have figured that out in building those the skill sets are are getting way far ahead. What i think is really interesting. The whole notion of skills like those kind of these big created the these are the big themes of skills. What's interesting though is if you look around the whole trimming concepts most companies i would say less than half of companies offering a training around any of these the availability to these types of reskilling outside of mba programs. Don't really exist or Outside of continuing ed with what's even kinda if you put on top of that..

The last item I mentioned to you from the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies that should be considered hate speech to say humans are superior to animals. Goes under the heading of what I have often commented on my program. Is the single most consistent theme of all of my broadcasting. Consequences of secularism. People never think about that. This is a generalization. Some people do overwhelmingly. It is not even raised as a topic. The most important topic of the last century is ignored. What are the consequences of the death of God? Nita Nita addressed Death of God mean God does not die. But the death of belief in God shorthand. People act like it's a not people treat it as if it is a non issue. The issue. When religion died in in Europe. We got Nazism, fascism and communism. Religion is dying in the United States. You've got the 2020 chaos, the moral chaos. The riots, an intellectual class of idiots. True idiots defund the police. Is there a stupider doctrine that you have ever heard in your adult life? Defund the police. If you defund the police, more people die. Do you understand? That's what happens. It is an announcement. I want more people killed. There was no difference between defund the police and I want more dead innocent people. You are a despicable idiot. If you believe in defunding the police, you idiots who do not who vote for these idiots. You don't give a damn about people dying at the hands of criminals. That is what it means. The fund, the police Reimagine policing reimagine. The board secular come up with that idiotic term reimagined. Really reimagine policing. Wow! For all of recorded history. People were wrong in thinking that you needed police to stop criminals. What idiots? But we went to graduate school. We know better. We re imagine life because we're so bloody bored with the one we have. Because it's just secular. Uh, desert. Mhm. Right. How many religious people believe in defund the police? Not many. Is this more wisdom in a traditional Church or synagogue, and I emphasize traditional, not mainstream. Then there is at any college. Virtually any column. The fund the police That's right. Well, let's reimagine hate speech. Right as these guys right? It's all the consequences of secularism. I was in Colombia. You could see the article. I wrote it many years ago. It's on the Internet. If you write it, it stays there. How I found God at Columbia. You know, I went back to Columbia few years ago. I'm reminded of this because somebody in my speech in Utah Was a student at Columbia at the time and actually went to the speech. And I spoke about it again. How I found God here at Columbia. And Colombia banned it from being Podcast while I did it. They didn't even allow it to be recorded. Nothing. They could stop it, but they they could stop a video camera and I don't know if I still have the audio. Anyway. Found God at Columbia Because I knew then in the seventies, I was being taught nonsense. I kept wondering why. Why is this place.

"Dead. And he's like if you walk out with that and the neighbor see we will have to move to rep story very quickly so this is the big advantage of this thing. Apart from the improved bit rate is that it gets rid of the need for a bunch of things like a bunch of lodge gimbal antennas and and deployable systems on the outside of the scruff which reduces weight and obviously the less weight. You can have the less mass. You can have on the ship the better. The reduced power allows batteries to loss longer as well.

Sustain established sustained presence on the moon and eventually merged yes. Well that's the big thing is facing the move is negative staging post to get to mars. Yeah i think that that's the idea. And yeah just a stepping stone and also just like upset proof of concept that we can do more than just near earth orbit missions again. We could do more than golf. We can upgrade to highlight or something. Oh yeah i think about will the sports so they can do think ultimate frisbee even existed during the original apollo run. See how a frisbee i mean. Obviously there's no a frisbee august. No matter how you the same speed a frisbee can be coming at you. Longitudinal coming out facing you because there's no air a frisbee would probably go about the same distance. If you through a bull backhand which would be a bull would just go further because you can throw a bull in a more normal life. Or you're just throw the frisbee like you throw bull right but then again for spinning it. You're still getting the benefit of the gyroscope. Wait oh god throw. How could you throw a baseball or for the farther on the moon. I bet you could throw a frisbee. They're not because it gains any. Aerodynamic gyroscopic effect and i think maybe overall a person can whip. I don't know. I really don't know take the best. We've got to send the best of the best pitcher that's the most important. Wouldn't it be easier to train. Someone like an astronaut to be able to frisbee nasa to. Jj occurred to me when you were talking about. That was because nasa. They're always trying to get people excited. I i think this genuine might be a good idea. You mentioned in baseball and throw a frisbee like speaking of somebody who's like ganges and stuff on the internet. I know for fact. If i put a picture of my dog and anything against like i thought it was in more likes wrote. They've gotta bring a dog to the moon. A chase a frisbee gotta space. Dog to space for that would be an ally. I don't just people are going to be throwing their money at that. Everybody wants to see. The dog takes a frisbee zero governor. Doug low gravity and still everybody like he just like it would work on so many levels. We have got to get a dog on the moon. Sent the internet by the way doesn't seem to think that there's a gyroscopic effect that keeps it up in the air. The air yes. Just the the the airflow over the edge of the frisbee which is basically an airfoil is increased by the spinning of it right. I wasn't saying that i was just thinking. It might not look as strained as you suspect it would look because if you released the same way it look the same but yeah it's not gonna be held up by spinning but you could also throw it if you could just get your throat to be as hard you could throw it pancake style and it could be coming at you. You're seeing a circle coming at you and yeah would be it would it. Would it would travel about the same distance as you could throw at effectively. Whatever is easiest right but depending on which in which case something leaves your hand at the highest velocity and. i don't know if that would be for the average person. Faster with a backhand frisbee toss or an overhand baseball throw. I guess it would be overhand because otherwise baseball players. Like through the bull back backhand. I mean we. We need to wrap up this episode if any of our listeners have have tried to throw objects on the moon before police do right in and let us know the normal. That's probably sized gmail.com.

"You know ready say that we wouldn't ten ten years ago you would have trouble on the street and murdoch. Wow well no. We parked the car better book but that was the thing that happened on the way. Then we did. We went to the space center because it was like on the way remembering this rightly we were not really interested. We we just thought. Oh what's spacecraft. And we were like they do tour when you go in there they bring you through the history of the thing it is the most incredibly well done thing ever to look like to the point. Where at the end of the tour sport a thing comes back like it really gets across to you like these. Were you will beings in a tiny ship.

It was like how amazing it is that we can go into space and then the things pull across and like the space shortlists there and honestly i have never met. I never met any human being and stuff and been who god so excited when they pulled it across and it was a spatial and that was like half an hour before i was like okay. Going to look at it to this is amazing. They do a great job when it comes to selling it. Oh man. I got to go there and then yeah because i don't remember half of that from if might also note a being death two years ago when i was a kid. No it's great. As by the way around the world war. Two museum in new orleans which is genuinely. I'm not big museum guy but also that was the only thing that stood out. Nothing was incredible. Just absolutely incredible things like we all felt museums ago. You know kind of take a boring but when somebody does it right you realize how incredible it can be at like sharing knowledge and making people excite you to pretend to know sort of yep little tangent hit. But it's with for this is who always you. Ceo's well you are. You're also very whites like you are like you and your wife are like the the platonic ideal of two people who take a photograph together. Those pictures online of like a mixed race couple. Who can't be like no photography. Technology has yet walked out how to deal with you both. Oh genuinely it's amazing. When i first met her family we went for a meal and it was like mayor parents. Two nieces five. And they're all quite short short family and sort of there is a big big bloke. And i'm very white haired and like we gave camera to the waiter stanka photograph and he was not there for like two minutes or frozen smiles. Gone is that all right. You know find there you go. And he just gave up and you look at. It was amazing. All you saw in every photograph was me and it looks like the rest of them. Want to witness relocation program. They were like they've been blurred for their own protection. It was really awkward. Way get that or they're in focus and your ghost salsa blinding light that emanates from a corner three is like this is the time we met god not by the way. I have a full being white beard because they no longer need to leave the house. 'cause you know as i said i know roy in my office in the back garden.

"And it's one of those because we all know. Social media can be hell on earth in so many ways. But it's one of those things you go when the collective just sorta latches onto what idea it can become this wonderful magical thing honestly. That's kind of like basically kept me on twitter for the next year because when that happened it was just beautiful because it for for something that goes viral but really has almost no malice to it as well as just a general of sorry. I really was just every sort of ridiculous thing you've heard from your like you're a great love. The computers over and all that sorta still nyc of fat. I got knows locals and stuff like that if you were amazing care. He's an amazing man hilarious but i to made. I can't always understand what he's talking about because he has a very strong accent is a wonderful mind but i like nobody. I just met him weddings. And we get drunk together and having a laugh out before you know before i drank i was can get drunk with him. He wasn't getting drunk as a child. Flippable by of we're getting drunk and he was telling you stories stuff when you're at weddings and areo. Nobody's telling me for the story. And i met him for the first time in a funeral once. And that was genuinely really stressful. Because you didn't know if he was telling a story or something sound and at if you lost the thread you're were just floating there going. I'll give you some kind of acclaim. We're trying to figure out because one of these things that it's a weird thing with certain accents once you're in the flow if you're on the train you know we are going but if you get off the train you are lost and you just can't get back on. You can't find a back way back into the stream understand wherever you go and at that point you're not just waivers it goes by. You're going out. God i hope i figure out what's being said now. I hope my aunt make up the appropriate face at the end of the sentence. Yeah that's it you're gills trying to find a neutral facial expression and then match is belatedly we just finishing with some sort of the most neutral platitude account like well. That's quite quite the thing there. But what world. We're talking about communication Just embroiled listeners. Sent in this story from nasa about communication with the proposed awesomeness mute munition. They're hoping to have four. K communication powered by lasers for this. This this is an official press release on. Nasa's website on nasa dot gov and they have. They've got a little bit too cute for press release. As far as i'm concerned kendall murphy who wrote it for nasa gov laser communications would empower earthlings. Alright candle to employ high definition images and video when astronauts returned to the lunar region for the first time in fifty years. You don't know where kendall's from pastured centric of you to assume that he's an earthling my apologies. Yeah may maybe kendall ready view themselves as some kind of extra extraterrestrial just just extra species. Doing there was quite clever because a large part of the interest nasa get is from the kind of people who are big. Ufo's and still. I've read a lot of that stuff for stranger times on january fourteen times so i think if they do if referred to themselves earthlings and stuff like that will guarantee you. There's a so breaded somewhere going absolutely crazy of it. They know it's a clue exactly like just give him a little crumbs. Do the traffic going up on the website. So it's counts so michael bay who system mission systems engineer for michael from armageddon to the no. It's now working for nasa justice system engineer. I appreciate that by the way like starting not know studying at the top. Were working his way up through the system like he's doing it properly. But michael says. I've been with a project since the beginning. And it's an honor to work in multidisciplinary teams and create a revolutionary communication system. Together we will convert information into pulses of light the orion to optical communication system oto leverages laser communications wilson optical communications views on nasr's cutting edge orion spacecraft launching in twenty twenty three. That soon god man could get to the moon in twenty twenty three just so this i realized that i i didn't realize the time line was that close. So it's launching in twenty twenty three ultimate to will during a ten day mission bay plant. It will loop around the moon before heading back to us. It'll make the mission. I use communication technologies but crewed spaceflight which will enable live four k ultra high video from the moon as well as enhanced science data transmission and more. So we would. Just i literally two nights ago i was i was at. Andy's went to visit him out in the desert and we watched the apollo eleven documentary which uses original footage. Film thought footage from the time and seventy millimeter film footage. It looks a yeah. I didn't know that. I had seen all this grainy tv. Footage this horrible. Tv processing take horrible late sixties tv processing. But they were filming on film so it looks as good as film looks and they've cleaned up the film stock as well looks incredible but we were talking about how the mission the future missions now will have high def real time footage of the. We'll be able to see ridiculously high quality footage of the moon that would would that put the mesa history eventually. I'm trying to think of after watching that movie. Any any many denier. Like how would you watch that movie and still but it wouldn't really matter how much clearer the footage there will still be people who well. Yeah that's the state of the art of faking footage now. So that's what it is now. Yeah now they film that. They've had they've had almost fifty years to produce new film so the the idea is to have high definition video transmissions to and from the moon links says project manager. Steve horowitz. if you're cool the images from the apollo mission they will great difficult to see. We do recall that but i will allow us astronauts from ultimate to video images significantly more vivid and detailed. I may the amazing thing about that is like we recording this podcast. Now we've had to restart bones already because we lost it in the middle. We have as far as aware not loose around the move. Also it's worth pointing out that. The link wasn't even to us in manchester from from america. It wasn't even the cross ocean link fell. It was the link. That was one hundred twenty miles across california but failed between andy and me but the local mike issue you can i. That's a cable. That's that's a two foot long cable between your microphone on your computer that screwed up grasp of you've been the space kennedy space center and stuff burn. I have when i was a kid. And i'd love to go back i was. I was eight at the time. I'd love to go back now and with we. Actually i wasn't a big found that the whole space thing and stuff myself my wife. We literally drove from new orleans down to miami and it was one of the stops along the way as by the way we went to mobile alabama. Which wasn't supposed to be a stop on the way. We genuinely missed a turnoff to. I think the world's largest bowl of string of having argument in the car and then we saw mobile. Bobby's we'll go there. They're going to they're going to have a. They're going to have the museum. They've got a lot of history and the do and by the way my wife black and i'm white and that was kind of extraordinary to go to mobile alabama and the guy ended the museum talking to go and it's good to see mixed race couples..

I don't remember that. They got the rights to rolling stone. Start me up. Because i was the first introduction of the start button or maybe maybe an. They paid ridiculous money for one of those things where they almost paid as much as they could. Because that was the story then that they printed about wednesday the rolling stones and they also produced an instructional video starring a couple of cuss members from friends in a wit bad sitcom that we then talk about on that show memory hole that i write for on qube has oh by the way i think now. Everything is over to roku roku originals. So can now be seen again so memory whole lot. That isn't l. visible. That is now viewable. But there's an episode of tightly around that this bizarre at the sitcom hand which is how far was that inter friends because like those people making a million dollars an episode near wish. Like i'm used. I think it was like off to the they were like one and a half seasons in so it was early days still a big because it was put this up at the time and having that same thought it was like. Was this light right at the beginning when they were really pretty much unknown sitcom actress and i know they would definitely they were known sitcom actors on should have known better. Yeah i mean if it's in ninety five which is the year when it came out the fall ninety five. I remember in being a freshman in college and it was destination viewing in the common area. That's it was a huge fan but it was like the biggest show the biggest comedy show on tv. Yeah did go big early and then it stayed there for like a big for as long as friends. Probably as far as i can recall but they never were that big match at its peak when it finished because also was just in the area of the monoculture. It was even more so than friends. i think it was just. Everyone watched it but it was a slow build and seinfeld obviously was the massive when it finished but it took but season one was not a mega hit. Yes still so. Yeah so it was. It was a season in a bit in. It was because friends started in one thousand. Which can you remember was in it it. Can we guess was it to them. Was it two or three. Let me which. I think would have the worst judgment am kudos very. She has an engineering supplies. Degree can predict to the crew wasn't in it. They were too. I needed to double check. I'm gonna go. i'm gonna go hard on leblanc. Leblanc would be in it. I'm afraid not. Oh and now. That's what matthew perry mason could. Could i start this operating system.

It's leprechaun star jennifer aniston. I would've thought she'd have better judgment pretty. That's a whole the whole fifty. Six minute long thing is on youtube. If you're kidding me it's because it's not it's not an ad is not just an advertising feature. It's basically a tutorial is like a user guide like terrible maisy. Each thing is like a mini scene with showing. Oh by the way it also gets quite racist the point they show you how they can. You can use a feature windows. Ninety five to order chinese food delivery interesting but surprisingly not against chinese people that goes where as mexicans and no one knows what i mean at least keep it fresh. You know unexpected. Racism is the best guide of racism. Let's be clear. But wow that's amazing entire friday night now.

They've had to sit through all of those poor people but yes so. My scientific background is an adult in school. And then i went on electric engineering and university. Mainly because i wanted to be a rockstar. I was a german bands. And i wanted to be engineer. Seemed like the most logical thing to become a my mother. Just sorta round with. That went. If i mean that's the type of engineer. And then she wrangled some send engineering people and they said like what degree do you need for that. And then all of you don't you don't you degrade and she's like could if you agree what degree would be useful. And then they were mid electric engine. Lovely an basically committed convinced me to deal the electric engineering university which had very interesting. But i spent four years incredibly not famous like every year. I turned up at the start of the year. You could see people looking back and see me sitting in the room with them and they were getting visibly-angry that that idiot's got through like i didn't. I didn't do my labs and stuff remember. Point got cost myself my lab partner because we basically figured out we broke into a covert and found a laboratory people's lab books from like the week before so we copied out the next few experiments and their results and stuff and at one point we actually submitted our findings and Somebody come up and went. Neither of you have been here for two hours or a muslim. Actually got off to organize a gig for my band. And he'd gone and play a j football match and he was literally standing their trucks.

I add oh wait we we we we it already files for some inexplicable reason. I was terrible student but by the way there's one this occurred me today i'll tell you this is my all time favorite science thing in school and there was a guy in school with me called horse and the reason he was called horse was he looked like a horse like literally. Yeah it was very. I mean like he referred to himself as horse. The teachers call them horse. Am i like horus was just. He was the worst combination ever for teacher. Because god love him. He wasn't very bryce but he was also terribly king. He had questions he was asking our physical teacher. Genuinely you can see get twitchy because teachers whatever about people being the method in our class. Teachers really don't know how to deal with kids. You just keep asking questions because they want to learn. That's it scares the hell out of the horse. Police hundred wound day. Every time we did we can ask questions like every time we did build with that horse and horse daniel when he always had a question he actually police had that what he's question was brilliant. He just went on stone or newton. Who was better. And i remember the visitation. i mean. That's an incredibly complex question. I mean it depends which one was the wounds are and he's i mean there's a lot of contributions there you'd have to go through and then horse was sort of so you don't know biology and he was like joe no horse. It's very complex question and jeb. You play the end of the class. This teacher weight into his room with the back in the lab and he. He was linson because he didn't know what to say. Look these are irish schoolteachers. Couldn't that was back in those aged given it. You can't get kid.

"Of like. Oh that is an amazing way to deliver that line. Thank you have lifted my writing and then we've had this sort of what a curious. What a curious choice. You've just made up of amazing things without where i've written case. Tv as well. Which again is a great at brilliant training grabbed and stuff. And i always speak really of it but you do have the situation where those shows are recorded pretty fast and you will see the couple of actress. He just bought your aligned. And i've actually not seen most kids tv. I've written and it's not because i'm sure most of his great but just when you see somebody really killing you go oh mine. Have you ever spoken english before now that you understand the structure of that sentence but yeah so yeah exactly that and whereas crisis. I mean christmas written for loads of stuff as well. So he's been through all that stuff. Yeah i just feel. It's nice to feel like you've got shared experience with the person who's in charge your baby as it were so the stranger times though to give it. Another plug is the that is the major label book. That is currently your big thing that he has not. Yeah no it's an it's it's been cool because it's kind of a. It's a sort of paranormal thing. Set manchester where. I now live which was allowed phone to write and also the great thing is i actually did. If you're aware of this. But i did i would. I wrote short stories as well basically because there was a lock there. I was really bored. And i didn't want another novel so i wrote like a bunch of short stories and what we did was we got prince print from the stand up circuit to record them and yeah we had below the great people doing them and it's been it's been such good to here. Comedians reading the stories great. And they're all sort of set within this. Well i'm wrong but the book because the actual book is about this well the revolves around this sort of paranormal sort of fourteen times type of rag. That's produced out of this disheveled office the manchester. That's all about like we'd happenings. But then it turns out the that not just necessarily completely invented stories. And there's more to it than me. And that's the case but it's very much based on kind of like the fourteen times is low rent brother and like really sort of like the sort of for for american listeners. With the weekly world news was not gone now. It was the one with batboy and remember which were an amazing. I book of some of the highlights that are publishing and the thing is i was i was impregnated by a werewolf and all that kind of i mean it's honestly just reaches the level of art so to cope with drought the book. There are fake news stories that supposedly in this page at times articles at those are kind of as a right thing by those really tricky. Because you've got to write something 'cause basically like the articles in the forty nine times already so out there you have there actually. It's actually really hard to do. Kind of spoof if you like a vast because you know it's a when something's already so kind of out there so you have to really get into a good frame of mind to get that. There's a little sliver between absolutely insane. You know the truth will report as it were and you have to hit that kind of sweet spot but those articles like i say when those are difficult to do actually eh. jason manford the comedian. His radio show for like six weeks. And we the competition where it was hidden. In the steve edgy presents the show with them and every week i came on with three stories to rich real of one of which i made up and we were supposed to have a competition to see which one of them could spot the more made up ones and you know we won the competition. It was me because they cut so few of the ones that were made up. Compared to real that i ended up winning the competition in a way that mathematically. I've never quite figured today with my body. It should have been basically if they guessed without seeing the stories. They would've which was fake. They wouldn't have done better. That's how weird the actual news. And i mean at imagine. A lot of listeners would already know list but the golden rule with anywhere new story is. Did it happen in florida yet that everything happens in florida for that. It's it's it's quite. There's there's like a bunch of reasons. Why florida man forward news is such a specific thing like i. It's like a perfect storm of well public. Stolen for starters in the weather conditions tax break rules that rick that a bunch of like. It's a mixture of retiree as legal reasons. The just ends up being sort of general safe space for people fleeing other areas of the. Us there's also. There's there's also is reporting roles. I'd like i think i need to look up the exact reason but it something like there are no restrictions on any legal things. You can publish all everything that goes through has to be published. Whatever it is this just like a greater amounts of florida stories as well so logical reasons. Why florida is completely illogical. Very much so. I'm going to look up the specifics florida man why they've also got lost writing thinking about. Am i right in thinking that you also produced. You produced an entire version of the newspaper to help to to sell the book. Yeah we actually produced the newspaper. We just did perversion of which worked. Great is a promotional thing. we literally sent around publishers. Before we'd ever sent the minute script and it was one of those things because he did the same thing for my first amber amber show like. Oh god fifteen years ago where i did this show about predictions for the future. Future shock did open. The show was very good. Frankly a bit more than i could chew was a lot of people do with their show but i did. The newspaper and people loved it but he just didn't realize it was advertising much like it was like four pages and it was like god. Some of them were yet predictions for twenty. I think what's been. The ear was predictions for like ten years. The future and then the second is twenty years and thirty years and forty years we use. Even you still like stuart. Lee becomes the head of his own religion which is basically happened quite a few things like that but we that and then weirdly just after we thought well that was ways to talk and then when it came this came up like fifteen years later myself from the wife went. We did that newspaper that time. What actually make sense to deal with this and it worked breeding this time so my point is all of your terrible ideas from the pastor. Never truly wasted. They can actually come back and work out. Great in the end so here we go horrid has the one thousand nine hundred five sunshine law which is a public record low which means the everyday citizens can easily access almost all public records including mug shots a government agency business photos emails maps so with very few reductions except for things like names and specific addresses. So that means firstly like any crazy new any crazy crime story you can instantly published like the mug shot all the details and then also. The weather just means that a lot of people are outside a lot of the time true might merely all the time Do do crazy. Things only happen outside. I don't know if that part of the they happen when people are out and about and interacting with each other. i think that's probably the thing behind closed doors. I mean let's but also people are interacting with strangers. Moved rare as you know..

You know there's going to be other offers is like yeah you're gonna take this very probably never been terribly good money motivation. But this thing but it is. You had an impressive route. You know you started. You started self publishing these books and they kicked off and grew to the point that major publishers started to notice like jump on this thing. Yeah no it's it's they do. I mean people so excited independently. You'll never never get main. Pull the shirt and stuff and that was actually nonsense. Publishers were were fine with the road. Something different because to be honest. Like if you actually do something yourself. Independently i mean. How many people that do. But most of the time it makes no sense to then sell the rights to a publisher because they wouldn't like if you're already making money they're never gonna give you as much money as you would make just what if you're already successful. It's they wouldn't pay that kind of money. It just weird. He makes more sense. There's so many weird things in publishing that make no sense and just wanted to me as if your book is self published. And it's very successful like they used the wall and stuff which is now going to be on tv series and there's been a couple of the publishers latched onto but now they basically won't they. Yeah notes if it's already successful we're we're not gonna make it as accessible as it already won't be with all the so many on things in publishing and you find the central weird system when you go through the main one. They kind of the traditional publishers. But yeah we started doing that. And then they kind of got interest. And i think they know it was the books around and we got option for tv in america bizarrely before we started this rooms and hallways this podcast going the way this is like within a day. Oh okay and next week. it's going to be announced. There's a team visit a comedy company in britain. That's one of the biggest names that you and i know well. All's we know people who are also represented by them a it down to two. Yeah yeah yeah And one of them is signed up with actually raining replays but it's basically a comedian. Talk about the books. Can't say this. Until tuesday so this is really but he was founded the if we could put this off until tuesday if you want that otherwise. You've always been it's annoying. Put it out on tuesday under a big time constraint. Sorry listeners days now you know why. The episode came out a few days late. It was incompetence and general this organization.

Made the dove in books which is really cool. Because yeah chris addison for the felicitous. Who are sort of into reading the credits and being really fight with what christie might have known as a comedian but also he's increasingly turned his hand to first writing and directing directed a bunch of like. Amanda you nucci. Projects like there was some thickets. He was both in and then directed and then he directed episodes of veep the veep. Yeah and now. He's in the feature directing well as well. Yes he's done some of that. There's also series called breeders in the uk which has been very successful with martin freeman and think they've already been commissioned the second series on now and the commission for the third one which i think is that simon blackwell who yes him and sony black weather. I think it was the main writer. And then chris because chris has a handed. Simon is also summit in that veep weld and that the show and all of these things. Yeah an amazing see. I was really sorry. Because i've got lucky with during times. Go tv interesting stuff and all this great but the thing though is like is he know yourself. Chris addison we even though we may increase with no the very well but as somebody from the stand up circuit you kind of you know about the same people. You have the same instincts. Then yes i instantly went. He'll get like done many gigs together. You would have been drinking the same edinburgh performance baas and y- but even then you just say we have shared instincts because we both come from lawyer even stuff so it just feels like he will not like. I don't think i've ever got the situation. Where i'm going to be going chris going. I don't think that it's funny. I think the other you know yeah. I don't think you've understood what the joke is in that sense. 'cause you like inbetween your author and you stand up phase. You also went through a healthy chunk of like writing for various tv shows. No i know from personal experience as well. We've we've.
"mcdonnell" Discussed on Probably Science
"Hey welcome to property science. I'm matt cash and mandy would handy. We thinks not bad. I don't know how i if you twelve hours ago. But i i went up to visit. Andy andy lives in the desert now and this joshua tree we should interest against cause rather than just leaving him hanging on the end of the line. Our guest is. I was formerly a comedian. No longer do standard right or what. You occasionally w up's still. But i was saying now a successful author tom. Tv right to turn. Yeah no. I basically retired from standup comedy. June twelve months ago which is our mutual friend gary delaney. He says is the greatest piece of comedic timing. He's ever seen saying. I basically bailed and the whole thing the pandemic so maybe you was propping up the whole comedy. Well basically. i was in similar package for the entire thing. Yeah i mean if you look at any other external factors i mean. Let's just draw the correlation that let's just see like we've gives up this is mcdonald everyone equally. This cuiv gives up stand up and then seconds later the entire industry collapses comedy clubs closed down people just all reason to leave their house. No i was no longer gigging. Make sense temporarily makes sense correlation elite. It's gotta be the cause. I mean i think science podcast that you'd be date next question. Ask pretty much understand a lot of signs but that said it all very believable to me. So you started. You started self publishing books. I sort of crime. Comedic crime novels under macdonald. Yes you have just published under. You've gone for the slightly different name. The the cuiv k. Mcdonnell you're you're now your first major publisher properly released big label book under seek haven. That's the strange. At times. Which i just read by the way it was great is dabbling in that. I say sit j adjacent certainly in that sort of cool vibe that people be nice enough to say it's actually with it's january but i was very lucky where our books kind of took off from their own. We am so we kind of did well like kind of retarded before this came from. Stand up but yeah. They went for by the way for the almost unbelievable reason that a major publisher was terrified with the fact that nobody knew how to spell. Say or do anything with the name. Cuiv i mean it is basically i. I had i not sort of met you and hurt your name. Roughly the same at almost exactly the same time that i saw it written down. I don't think i would have even. I could have even begun to guess how might be pronounced people genuinely if you want to really enjoy yourself listeners. If you haven't see my name on on the thing just having gained the hangman with yourself now trying to spell the name you already of heard somebody say you will actually not get it dot about. It is a single letter. Jelly phonetic spelling of my name. This one hundred percent true features none of the letters. They're in my name. I used to joke with my grand. Goal is the child's name or his chemical formula. Because like i've seen people get genuinely angry when they look. Yeah no it's been quite the feature. So yeah we went. When c k which by the way is our initials because cuevas the inversion. That's like kev. Basically an irish cuisine is the full name of kevin and irish. And i've always used cueva because all at the stage name they go to what my wife calls me. At least one of the things he goes means he doesn't go together but yeah so so if people say stage no the reason we went c. k. Is like genuinely sent it to my agent. And he said the quake they might be a problem said see slash k. As in queen or as nc for cueva or caver kevin seek those are initials. he's not one hundred percent literate. Because you wanna argue that. Maybe the usual seek had a couple of years but declined genuine. The underpants weight very disappointing. I will say that. I do not like the elastic. I mean not not rather than to this question but when he got to meet somewhere for those things and is not a present opposite of a sponsorship negative yes going to track some major major lawyers and so.

WHO investigators begin looking into coronavirus origin in Wuhan, China
"By the World Health Organization into the origins of the Corona virus pandemic is now getting underway in the Chinese city of Wu Han, where the disease first came to light. Earlier today, China warned that the members of the W H o team should be allowed to work free from political interference following calls from the United States for the probe to be robust and clear. A team of experts has just completed its two week period of quarantine in Wuhan. The BBC Stephen McDonnell is in the city and he told me more Basically, we've been following this international team of scientists around today We saw his they lifted quarantine until to go toe are normal Hotel, the big, rambling complex of a place where they'll be able to have face to face meetings with their Chinese counterparts. I mean having discussions via video link, but now they can sit down and talk to one another about the possible causes of the Corona virus. I think one thing that's pretty crucial is there's been a bit of misunderstanding. I think as to what this team is going to do. They're not really going to be doing their own research. They're going to be examining what the Chinese scientists already have. And then looking at what's missing. I mean, how do we get to the bottom of what caused this virus does new research after the commission or something along those lines? I'll be then putting together a report and moving on from there. What they won't be doing is in two weeks telling us we've found out the cause of the Corona virus have stressed to us out complicated. This is It's a very difficult thing to work out. It's going to take time, maybe even years and frankly, asked us all just to wait and see what they come up with other scientists visiting the laboratories that some people say the virus might originally have escaped from in short, no They see the lab leak theory as a conspiracy theory, really? And unless they've got some solid reason, they say, scientific reason. They're one of me going down that path. What they're looking at is the zoonotic origin of the virus. In other words, the question of which animal it possibly came from, maybe a bat say into another animal, and then finally into human beings and how that could have taken place when they're even saying it could have come from about overseas or even a person, another country and that the virus entered Wuhan buy somewhere else. That's a very contentious thing for them to have said because the Chinese government has been really pushing this line that we owe. It probably came from overseas. I mean, one Foreign Ministry official even said it definitely came from overseas. So they'll be locking that the W H O is considering this, But either way, the scientists would there be from other countries or China have somehow going to get above the politics in this And really mine into the research into the doctor to see what they can find. That was the BBC Steven McDonald reporting from the Chinese city of Wu Han, and he'll be following the progress of that Wh o team there.
AI Today Podcast: Artificial Intelligence Insights, Experts, and Opinion
Data and AI in the state of North Dakota, Interview with Dorman Bazzell, CDO of North Dakota
"Today with us. Our guest is dorman basell. Who is the chief data officer for the state of north dakota so high doormen and thanks for joining us today. Kathleen ron thank you for the opportunity. Either to hang out with you guys for a little bit. Yeah we'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. And your current role as the chief data officer for the state of north dakota. Sure sure well. Good morning everyone So my my background is You know went to college. Got a degree in computer science mathematics and then when often like everyone else When i lived in saint louis you. It was kind of a requirement. You had to work for mcdonnell. Douglas which is now boeing corporation. So did that for it. But but then after a while Got got involved in consulting and worked my way up through the Consulting ranked says developer and they as a project manager is the data architect the solution architect and then finally got into a position of driving business intelligence and analytics for a couple of large international consulting firms where ran their north america. Big data and the i practice And the great ride. A thoroughly enjoyed all of the things we did. I think we added a lot of value to Our customers which was private industry And had great teams Had a strong onshore team strong offshore kimes and delivered a lot of value. But i think two years ago Over two years ago. When i applied for this position as the chief data officer At first i really didn't want position Didn't like the idea of state government state government has has a bad connotation Of kind of a nine to five job And a people people who just weren't really motivated to To move the world change the world and my boss who i interviewed my off. Now the cio. Sean reilly Who i interviewed with his his final comment to me was well. I can't pay what you make today. But are you wanna paycheck or do want to change the world. And i had never thought about life that way. Never tried to change the world and So i decided to take on this opportunity This was the first chief data officer position for the state of north dakota so there were a lot of unknowns Certainly certainly my presence Was a bit chaotic for the organization. Because i came in with a completely different agenda and completely different way of looking at the world through the eyes of the pillars that are assigned a line to me which application development and automation. And the second pillar is data analytics data science artificial intelligence and had some very different opinions about those things. And how we might move those forward So as i became involved with this role i became an. I had made an assumption that every state had a chief data officer come to find out there are only twenty seven of us out of fifty states So it's it's an interesting It's an interesting mix of of individuals who are chief data officers and getting to know them is. It has been a really amazing opportunity because they have such a very backgrounds and they bring such such different perspectives to cheap date officer role I like to joke and tell people that the last thing i focus on data which is obviously not true but but my real focus is really around cultural change within the city physician and what that means in the context of not not necessarily data. Because i have to executives are on my team who Are just are just brilliant at running the operations and managing the two pillars within my organization.
The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
Trump campaign transfers $3 million to Wisconsin for recount
"After the two thousand sixteen presidential election green party candidate. Jill stein spent three point five million dollars on a statewide recount in wisconsin which then increased donald trump's total by one hundred thirty one votes. Donald trump called that recount a scam and called on voters to accept the results of the election today. The trump campaign wired three million dollars to the wisconsin election commission to pay for a recount of ballots. In just two of the state's counties the two most democratic counties milwaukee county and dane county joe biden beat donald trump in those two counties by a total of three hundred sixty four thousand two hundred ninety eight votes and joe biden. Beat donald trump in the state of wisconsin by twenty thousand five hundred sixty five votes today. George christianson and scott mcdonnell the clerks for milwaukee and dane counties. Said this about recounts. I'm not surprised that they selected dean and counties they certainly didn't select them for a regularities they sunk to them because they're democratic strongholds. Of course a so frustrating. You know we were trained georgia and i trained for a year and a half or more for this kind of this information from the kremlin That's what we were trying to figure out. We're gonna try to mitigate that information on it out a lot of these bo- never thought it would be coming from from ourselves from from within the united states joining us. Now is wisconsin attorney general. Josh kaul general call. Can you tell us what you expect. In this recount process and whether it will lead to any possible of election litigation trying to overturn the results. Well i the recount itself is virtually certain to confirm what we know. Which is that. Joe biden scott's by about twenty thousand votes as you mentioned before we have recount for years ago and the change in net votes for the candidates about one hundred and thirty one votes. We haven't after twenty eleven states court races. Well and kind. Statewide recounts are in the hundreds. Nothing even approaching twenty thousand boats and the trump campaign does seem to be a little confused about how this process works because in re competition they raised a variety of legal claims but the time for legal claims relating to lose the election is well before the election. There's even a doctrine that says you can't our plans to close to election because you need to have certainty about rules are now bring those arguments. After voting. his happened after ballots have been cast after about twenty thousand more. Wisconsin voted for. Joe biden voted for donald trump. It's too late for those kinds of challenges. So will this delay the certification of results in wisconsin. It shouldn't recount needs to be done by december first and that's the deadline for certifying results. So absence some sort of order or something else that interferes with process moving forward certification will have to happen on december first so it sounds like the trump campaign believes that this is not just counting votes. But it's some kind of evidentiary discovery of some sort in which they might at the end of the process. End up with a legal claim. Is that even possible. If all we're doing is counting votes. That's what they're suggesting you know. But that's not how the rejoin process works as you said a recount is about recounting the votes. It's about confirming that. The numbers were accurate. They may very well. File a legal challenge as the recounts going on or at the end of it but any kind of like that is certain to fail. We've seen the trump campaign's success in court post-election and they keep losing case after case in the reason is because their claims have no merit and if they were challenging staunton I'm confident that it would be swiftly rejected courts so attorney general. Call knowing everything you know about this The vote count as it is the recount process as it will work. Wisconsin's history with recounts the likely on numerical changes as a result of recount Would you say tonight that. We know who the winner of the state of wisconsin is. Yeah there's no question about who's won the state of wisconsin. Donald trump is basically the equivalent position. Somebody who bought lottery tickets but he's Ticket after the lottery has happened. It's it's over and we know who has won this election.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner Production To Move
"Boeing move all seven eight, seven dreamliner production to South Carolina. Well, Boeing made the decision we talked about previously all assembly of the seven eight seven dreamliner will be consolidated in South Carolina this ends production of the seventy, eight seven or will in Washington. State. The Detroit? News reports that Seattle based commercial airplanes. CEO Stand Deal said the move to consolidate the work in North Charleston South. Carolina will be done by mid twenty, twenty one according to our best estimate. I guess this is a decision that's kind of not unexpected mid twenty twenty one sounds pretty quick to me Yeah I mean but I I WANNA make sure I've got this right. Was It south Charleston North Carolina or was it the other way round? Oh. So so south North North Charleston South Carolina. Okay. I think I've got that. Okay. Right now it's I don't think it was unexpected at all I mean and actually Not even just now I mean, Boeing has wanted you know since the time they open that place in South Carolina's nonunion shop I mean I think the the the people at the head shed have been looking just itching for ways to. To move as much production there as they can because they don't want to deal with the with the unions. And there's some manufacturing issues as well as we've said, the after mid few slows sections of the dreamliner assembled in North Charleston in those sections get airlifted on the dream lifter cargo plane for for Washington. State. But the seventy eight, seven, Dash Ten, mid fuselage is too long to fit inside the dream lifter. So there's no way to get it to Washington state. So you've gotTa have some. final assembly in. You. Got Me doing it. In In South Carolina. if you WANNA do the DASH ten. What happens in South Carolina? By I'm starting to know. There is that logistical issue. There's no doubt about that but of course they they've known about that for quite a long time that it was coming. I don't. Personally I. Think they just said this is a great time because WHO's going to really give us any Gulf because we're so involved with so many other things and everybody hates Boeing right now. Anyway. Well I. Think. The whole seven, three, seven. Max. debacle has has helped move it in this direction elated announced back in April that they were gonNA produce production to ten planes a month. Now, they're down to six planes a month, and you know with low production volumes just doesn't make sense to have two lines open. The the big issue is is probably will cost around one thousand jobs in Washington, which is. Really really unfortunate. So yeah, I mean the whole the whole Boeing thing just continues to you know have A. Backlash in you know different areas affecting more and more people. I. Wonder if they'll off they Boeing will offer to provide relocation assistance for the The Washington. State employees. That was my first thought. Then I started thinking well, you know maybe the volume is so low now and looks like we'll be for a that they don't need. The move may be any of the Washington workforce down to South Carolina. Yep. That's my guess in the if they do need people is probably you know very few that they they need. Maybe, a few specialists you really think they want to move union labor from Washington to South Carolina. I I was just GonNa. Say Dark and cynical. I don't think the Union House? How would that work? I? Mean you can't have. A shop that's part union in part nods when there's no contract down there now Charleston. So you have to all be nine union. So I mean, if there was a movie, if somebody did choose to move if they were offered that I would assume, they would have to give up their union membership and become non union employees like the others chur and who's going to do that I mean I, think the job I if it's a matter of keeping your job and losing it, maybe I think people are realistic but. I, don't think there's any intention of Boeing moving anybody. You know probably the and and and the other thing is it doesn't matter because the culture as far as. Issues with the systems in south. Carolina. Are just as bad. There's dreamliner issues. As well as all of the Washington issues. So it's not like Boeing's culture in that division is any better than Boeing's culture in Washington right now. They're they're screwed up across the board with the possible exception of St Louis. But that's really not bowing that's mcdonnell-douglas so.

Apocalyptic Battle for Take-Out Dollars: Uber Eats Pits Star Wars against Star Trek
"A. From wondering David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Wednesday September thirtieth. It's hardly a stretch to say that the pandemic has been delivery services, best friend, take-out meals, or so much more attractive when we're avoiding other people that's meant a surge in revenue for leaders and Hungary rivals Uber Eats and door dash in the second quarter ubereats. Gross delivery bookings totaled almost seven billion dollars a jump of well over one hundred percent from q one. Before we all started eating in as a privately held company door dashes keeping a lot of data to itself but the number of people using dash doubled from ten million last year to twenty million now according to research firm Emarketer. Possibly, to Ubereats Chagrin Jordache became so ubiquitous that it was responsible for more than half of all US meal delivery in April. Wow. That's according to market researcher. Edison Trans last week linked in named DOOR DASH number two on its list of top fifty startups based in part on exuberant hiring plans. The companies expected to go public by the end of the year Uber eats holds about thirty percent of US market share despite their rapid growth neither door dash nor ubereats has yet turned a profit chew on. Then these rivals are employing ever more creative marketing strategies in their efforts to. Become or remain top takeout dog ubereats constructed a quirky ad campaign that celebrates competition itself a sort of Meta Mezei the latest ads featuring unusual rivalry between get this star wars and star Trek. They star none other than Mark Hamill Luke skywalker in star wars and Sir. Patrick Stewart's Star Trek's Captain John Luc Picard they compete ferociously almost grimly in games of air hockey and connect for. But when an uber driver delivers a delectable dish, each breaks the foreboding mood to politely thanked the driver in this Ad. Stewart. Armed with Cricket Bat and Hamill carrying a baseball bat in a dark empty warehouse. Tonight. I'll be eating a Veggie cheeseburger. On Shibata. No tomatoes. Tonight I'll be eating four cheese. Tortellini. With extra tomorrow. Tony. Stewart so it's come to the. Thank you. Proper. Part of what makes the spot? So amusing is that the argument tomato tomato is, of course from the classic George Gershwin. Song, let's call the whole thing off. But of course, neither UBER EATS NOR DOOR DASH is planning to call the whole thing off quite the opposite if takeout became essential in March, it's remaining. So in could see even more growth this winter, a second wave of the virus causes more lockdowns. In Uber Eats case, the company says the campaign celebrating rivalries already been a huge success in Australia Taiwan Japan, where it launched last year and ad featuring Kim Kardashian and a fictional Australian character pushed uber eats brand awareness in Australia two levels quote on par with McDonnell's the company told Ad Week the new Stewart Hamill Lads bring the campaign to the US in Canada but whether the cleverness of ubereats his ad campaign can steal away
Startup Showcase with Scott Kitun
Congress releases scathing report on Boeing 737 Max
"Words, deception and basically disturbing both words used In a scathing report from Congress on their investigation into the Boeing 7 37 max development. It's re sort of its certification and maybe even it's re certification and about its relationship with the FAA. Pretty damning stuff. Right, John? By far the report that came out of the House Transportation Infrastructure Committee. Really highlights of very really damning picture of how Boeing and the FAA went about certifying the 7, 37, Max and All the missed opportunities to alter course and I think that you know, really spells, you know? Ultimately, a process breakdown about how this whole thing proceeded seemingly normally. But again going back in retrospect and looking at all these different opportunities to change course on DH account for this. The design of the 7 37 different way really is you see that over and over and over again in the house ended up collecting over it's over teaching of investigation. And it's my It's my guess that some people might actually go to prison on this because the actual behavior in my estimation was criminal. You know when you talk about criminal negligence It's written all over this, but it goes back to the basic relationship that the Federal Aviation Administration has with both manufacturers and with airlines. Two areas. They're supposed to regulate their not their clients. They're not. They're partners. I remember John being an immediate United Airlines. You may have even been there that day. I think you were When one of the operation guys, you know that stood up and said, You know, we are going to get the plane recertified. We're working with our partners at the FAA. And I stood up immediately and raised my hand and said, Excuse me. Did you just defined the Federal Aviation Administration as your partner? Isn't that the root problem here? And, uh, I didn't get a good answer. Because if you go back to the history of the FAA, we're talking decades. The people that actually certify any airplane, whether it's Boeing or in the old days, McDonnell Douglas or Lockheed or Convair. The people who certify that plane is airworthy. Or actually, on the payroll of the manufacturer. They're called FAA designated inspectors. Now, if that doesn't scream conflict of interest, I don't know what does The amazing thing is that that discussion is not new mean you like you just said that this this goes back decades. I mean, when when you hung it at you know what happened when the MacDonald does. DC 10 was ground back in the late seventies. There was all this discussion around delegated authority and how and how they're not. The FAA was able to act as an adequate regulator of Of those they were tasked with regulating And by the way, and by the way, John in that particular case, I know it so well. American Airlines maintenance guys figure out they could save four hours per engine change in maintenance by violating the maintenance manual and using a forklift truck instead of doing it with with pulleys and levers. Which violated the maintenance man, and they actually want told the FAA. They're gonna violate it. And the FAA said Okay and in the plane that crashed American flight 1 91 in Chicago, which, by the way, still ranks As the worst aviation disaster in this country in history. Up on the plane in question they were putting on a new engine. They have to fasten it with special bolts, and they had two of the bolts in two of the four bolts in when the when the lunch whistle blew So they went to lunch, and during lunch, they forklift lost pressure. Which is the reason why McDonald Douglas didn't want him to use a forklift truck. It bet one of the bolts and broke the other, but they didn't know it came back and install the other two bolts. They flew the plane empty to Chicago on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, Back in 1979 and They took out a full load of passengers for Los Angeles. We know what happened next. So this we knew this. You know you're absolutely right. This this is this is or 40 years ago, just about Yeah, and you know, And when you look at the DC 10 I mean, I've spent a lot of time in the last two years looking at the history of it because it is so similar to the 7 37. You know a lot of the new Certainly the root causes were different around the maintenance. Of the engine and how it was attached the aircraft, But there are there were definitely issues around around looking at the same core issues as your craft manufactures, which is how do humans interact with their technology? And how do How did an aircraft respond to damage and it's never just one thing

He they lived in Brooklyn together and he would come in. So she didn't have to take the subway by herself at nights. and. That's how we met. We I I never knew the story Oh my God. So he would he would come. He was so sweet I kept asking do you have a brother friend and he did hook me up with friend once that didn't work out but it wasn't until they broke up a couple of years. Later he got a number and called me so what I didn't break any relationship. Okay. That's a good story though. Okay. So keep keep going macy's macy's then got a job at Halston Orelon you guys probably don't know a Halston, the fashion design end ud line I worked there for a little while then the big job was working at Max factor and then we were acquired by Revlon and moved to La? The company Max factor acquired by PNG and moved to Hunt Valley Maryland Maryland Baltimore had a baby in Maryland that was the best part. Of Maryland then we moved back to la because Keith wasn't digging Maryland so much whatever, and then he became the state Dad didn't have a career anymore after that I ended up being the breadwinner starting the kid was born and then were worked neutrogena. And then San Francisco in here we are what is something that people can't Google about you that we should now. Aren't. So here's the thing to that I. Don't have a Wikipedia page. My team for years wanted me to build one, but I had this issue with being. Out there. So I don't know what's out there and I'm very uncomfortable with what's out there. So what would people not know about me? That I can play the harmonica and hula-hoop at the same time. Did you do that growing up? On hula-hoop for sure the Harmonica, I learned as an adult. So I have a hula-hoop now as an adult that I use regularly. So then I just combined two gifts that I have. You write about a quote kind of stuck out at me. The quotas get desperate I wanna dig into what that means because I think you know when in reading about your story like we've gotten to know you a little bit over the last year or so and I knew the high level part of your story. But in researching for this, it don't think I really could appreciate her understood how you really got your foot in the door and so I want to understand what get desperate meant for you. Yeah I think for me. I always had to work hard to get noticed it in everything I did and I think number one is my parents were divorced when I was nine and we were left with her mom not that there was a bad vanishes that she was the the strict one the tough one. So I was always like driven to please her with I think a lot of kids have that too. She was never quite one hundred percent. Happy. So I was always trying to please her. So I was always going above and beyond to get the grades and to get on the teams and that type of thing because I wasn't. We didn't have a ton of money growing up I had to be creative. So by the time I went to two years of college and I. My first two years. It was rough because it was my first time being outside of my mother's like grip. So kind of had a little bit too much fun when I realized that I had to. GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. My mother helped me figure out what my passion was. I UNI but couldn't get in to fit I couldn't get a job behind the beauty counter, which is what I need to do to get into the cosmetic program and I had to so learned that when I'm desperate when I can't seem to find my way is when I get most creative by when I'm at the bottom feeling down instead of being depressed for long periods of time I just started thinking what would I do in little steps to get there the story I have in The book is about Bloomingdale's I. wanted to work there really did but they would not give me the time of day because I had no experience on mcadoo, you have it if you don't get it the only solution to that was to just be in their face and I thought without being too annoying I'm GonNa go to the buying office. I'm going to go there every day every morning I know when they come in because the first time I went and it was a very narrow hallway. And I would smile and they would have to brush past. We had to literally touch audience for them to get by, and they just saw me every day and I think you don't persist Internet way just. So dedicated to your personal 'cause I had no choice for sleeping on couches I didn't have a place to live. They said. Why don't you come in? We'll find something
In The Thick
"Hey. What's up? Welcome to in the big this is a podcast about politics race and culture. From a POC perspective I'm mighty at Sam and I'm Julia Galleria joining us today. All of us important team separate going crazy. We'd have to return all stars from Princeton. New Jersey is Dr Eddie Claude Junior James. S Mcdonnell Distinguished University professor at Princeton University Hey Eddie welcome back rose more pleasure. excited. We are so happy to have you so happy and joining us from Boston Massachusetts County. Crossley. She's host of W. H is under the radar you're on the radar for here Kelly. Welcome back. I'm so glad to be back and we're happy to have you back so. It has been a minute since the both of you have been on the show it's the first time that you're on the show in two thousand twenty, which is honestly like, wow, I know and a lot has happened since you were on this show, the coronavirus pandemic I became a survivor of the corona virus myself the movement now to defend black lives this extraordinary reckoning that's happening all across the country young people really turning up, and now the twenty twenty presidential election officially heating up amidst all of this it's been intense so Kelly start us off just what's your temperature check? How are you doing like for reals? I'm exhausted I'm exhausted physically and emotionally, and as I wrote about recently I have outraged fatigue and I'm trying to fight it Eddie. How're you doing? I'm holding on I'm just barely holding on actually it's just exhausted like Kelly. Trying to hold on tired of looking at this damn computer screen and really just trying to figure out a way to step away from this moment. You know because I'm drowning in it it's been pretty intense. It's crazy Julia for two people who feel exhausted and kind of drowning in it, I. Mean. We turn to Kelly and two Edita to help us to give context but I appreciate and this show who that we do we do let it all hang out as we used to say back in the nineteen seventies. But the point being about exhaustion I think it's important to recognize that and. Unfortunately, I feel like this level of exhaustion is going to continue because here we go twenty twenty election. And there is now a zoo meeting called the Democratic National Convention DNC which starts this week we. The. People. We the people call the forty eighth quadrennial Democratic National Convention to order. And it goes through Thursday, all our listeners. We're recording this conversation on a Monday afternoon so that you know, but you know the DNC I actually saw this video i. don't know if you saw it on twitter from Nineteen ninety-six, the DNC is starting in everyone's doing the Macarena. Acquit. On. Putting You this big Joyce Event and I remember that actually so it's going viral on twitter. Clinton's yeah yeah claims and ninety six. Oh I saw that. So anyway so they're doing them I got and I was like I remember these conventions and it's supposed to take place in Milwaukee. Obviously because pandemic, it's turned into this entirely virtual format talking about computer screens, Eddie? I'm like, oh So. What we do know is that on Thursday Joe Biden is scheduled to officially accept the nomination from his home state in Delaware on Thursday. On Monday night, the virtual convention featured speakers from former first, lady, Michelle Obama let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is to Senator Bernie Sanders at its most basic this election is about preserving our democracy. During, this president's term, the unthinkable has become normal. He has tried to prevent people from voting undermined the US Postal Service deployed military and federal agents against peaceful protesters threatened to delay the election and suggested that he will not leave office if he loses. Is Not normal and we must never treat it like it is but you all know and we have people here who are critical of the Democratic Party like we are of the Republican Party. You've already heard the critique right that a number of the speakers like including Sanders and club HR, and Buddha judge and cory booker, all of them former candidates. So we've heard a lot from these people and one twenty twenty candidate was clearly not invited guests that was Oh let's see Mexican, who represents the largest non white voting block potential voters yes. That would be Latinos and Latinas and yes, they did not invite Julia Castro. Who is the only Latino candidate in the primaries so I mean look there are literally only a handful of Latino or Latina speakers. There are no Muslim speakers scheduled.
Coronavirus: Fact vs Fiction
Together, We Grieve
"Yesterday. The number of people who died from covid nineteen in the United States surpassed. One hundred thousand doesn't even feel like I can say that number out loud without getting a pit in my stomach. I know you've probably heard this number by now. The please let that settle in for a minute too. Often we see numbers on the screen and we forget the real stories of people who are not here today because of this virus we have known at least for the last few weeks that this tragic milestone would come but it makes it no less painful. Everyone's going to try and contextualising comparing the tragic number of deaths to pass wars terrorist. Attacks Plane Crashes Natural Disasters But one way should not be described as is inevitable. I'm Dr Sanjay Gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and this is corona virus fact versus fiction. Six months ago most of the world had never even heard of this novel Coronavirus Cove Nineteen. It was a virus that would change their whole lives. Some people would develop a cough a fever and then have a sudden decline. Some would require a breathing machine. Some never even made it to the hospital most dying alone because of the brutal contagious -ness of this virus family members of the sick and dying could not even be there so here we are left with memories and sadness and sinking feeling that we could have done better. And that's perhaps the most painful part of this whole thing so many of these deaths could have been prevented. We saw countries around the world afflicted with the same disease around the same time and yet heavy miniscule fraction of the infections in debts of the United States. Yes South Korea. It is one seventh the size of the United States but they have had fewer than three hundred people die total not three thousand not thirty thousand but fewer than three hundred. They didn't have a new magical therapy or a vaccine. They had nothing we didn't have. It was that they acted early. And we now know it made an exponential difference in lives saved about one in seven Americans. Now know someone who has died. I'm the corona virus. I am one of them. My friend Doctor. James T goodrich a truly gifted neurosurgeon. We first met when I was just a resident it would be a couple of decades before I got a chance to operate side by side with him during a groundbreaking operation separating the McDonnell twins little baby boy's conjoined at the head. Doctor Goodrich was considered the most experienced neurosurgeon in the world when it came to doing that operation when he died due to Covid we lost. Someone truly irreplaceable. The memory. I'll always hold onto about. Him is his smiling eyes peeking out from his surgical mask doing the thing that he loved more than anything else. So let's honor the memory of the more than one hundred thousand lives lost by committing ourselves to taking this virus. Seriously I will go ahead and just say it. It sucks what is happening. Right now is awful. Our country in the world had become infected and now we are dealing with an illness so different than any illness ever experienced by someone living today. It is a once in a century illness. And it sucks. We don't know exactly why we were stricken with this illness at this time in our collective human history but that doesn't mean we can't act. We must act. There are lessons to be learned not only from the past but from countries who battled against the same virus with greater success.

Malibu Creek Murder
"In August of two thousand eighteen officials from five different law enforcement agencies held a town meeting this is where they publicly acknowledged that they had no theory no suspect or no answers regarding the murder of Tristen Bo debt that same month month the Hollywood reporter stated that quote two sources with connections to the Malibu Lost Hills Sheriff's station. Tell the Hollywood reporter that detectives are working to assemble a physical composite of the tristen Bo debt shooter and are compiling a list of of persons of interest. This of course is news to everyone news that the La Sheriff's department had anything going to go on and all it seems perhaps the sheriff's department started to put some things together here. There is a weird thing a really weird thing in my opinion we have not only these strange weird shootings going on in the area area that had been going on for two years now. There's also been an uptick in burglaries on October ninth two thousand eighteen. The sheriff's department issued an official update on recent burglaries in the unincorporated calabasas Malibu areas it read on Tuesday Tuesday October ninth two thousand eighteen at approximately three a m a burglary occurred at the Gora Calabasas community center located at at the twenty seven thousand block of Malibu Hills Road in Calabasas detectives believed that the same suspect who was possibly involved in eight other burglaries glories use a rock to break the front glass door a vending machine inside the location was broken into with Iraq and numerous food food items were stolen. The suspect then walked away in an Unknown Direction Major Crimes Detectives along with other department resources are at the location today conducting a follow up investigation the most recent burglaries have occurred over a three month period. The suspect is described as a male adult slender build and wearing dark clothing. There were eight other recent burglaries that were laid out in this press release. We won't go through all of them as it's quite boring portion of the story but I'll give you the dates. There were two in October of two thousand in eighteen. There were two in September of two thousand eighteen one in July of two thousand eighteen and then we had one in March of two thousand thousand seventeen and then to an October of two thousand and sixteen none of these break ins involved residents they we're all professional buildings and commercial structures. Police stated that they felt that the burglaries were all connected but why did the police feel feel the need to issue a press release about some minor burglaries will probably because there's a bunch of shootings that they didn't tell the public about so since he got a bunch of back lash on that they probably thought we need to come clean about these break ins well yet and people were starting to wonder could the there'd be a suspected connection could law enforcement be thinking that there's a connection between the burglaries and the shootings yeah so speaking to the Media Era Sheriff Jim McDonnell said investigators weren't yet ready to link the two together he said but we won't rule anything out he said said but it would be premature to connect these cases nonetheless the media had already jumped to this conclusion that the hunt for the burglary suspect back in the hunt for the shooter were in fact one in the same articles and TV news stories appearing during the first week of October two thousand eighteen eighteen reported a massive that massive searches were being conducted by the Los Angeles Sheriff's department in Malibu County a dozen officers on ATV's and they're like decked out in tactical gear. They were riding through the park aided by helicopters and bloodhounds. They were pulling out all the stops for this vending machine robber who stole doritos yeah. It's pretty pathetic when you think about the lack of attention in the lack of effort that they gave to M- trees Richardson it emerged that indeed the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department wanted to question the armed burglar about Tristan's murder there appeared to be two reasons for law enforcement's interest in this thief one was that a surveillance footage that was found from the September thirtieth break in at Malibu Valley Farms Construction Office showed that the burglar who stole nothing but food again was dressed in tactical tactical gear was wearing a headlamp in a mask and was carrying a rifle. The burglary location was less than a quarter of a mile from from the campground where Tristan Bodak was killed. The other reason is that a park maintenance worker reported talking to a man who quote fit the description of the arm burglar. It's not clear whether this man was actually carrying a weapon when he approached the park worker but apparently apparently the man asked for a ride out of the canyon. He wanted to go to a different area a mile or so south of the camp campground and he says this is because there's so many police in the area the worker refused to drive this man anywhere and actually his report the Workers Kerr's report triggered these these big time searches that we're now seeing rain so even where we have quote we haven't linked it to bow debts killing lying but we certainly haven't ruled
