"mickley" Discussed on Newsradio 1200 WOAI

"The charts again. And I was just curious as to why and now I'm beginning to understand why, Because the other day someone sent me a video of this guy with the shaved head. Rolling down the street on a skateboard drinking ocean spray cranberry juice listening to Fleetwood Mac. And I watched it. I thought, Well, I don't get it. I don't know what this is about. And I don't know what it was. I said, What about watching here? What? I shall speak picking up. I don't see anything. I know it's like I was doing interviews on T M Z and I'm thinking who is this guy is he's some unknown guy that distorts hadn't sprung up. People are going. Wow, This guy's cool. Whatever right now, the given ocean, the ocean spray company gives him a truck. Mickley Wouldn't and Stevie Nicks like. Yeah, We love this guy. They're doing their own videos, and Stevie Nicks is lacing up our skates and everything and they're happy. It's going up the charts again, and I didn't get it. 46 million views. Eight million likes. The nation's obsessed with a guy who calls himself dogface to await. I'm thinking why I don't get it. Now there's something called the Dreams Challenge where people are encouraged to make a tic tac video is similar to this guy's video. This guy just chilling. No mask, just kind of roller skating, doing his escape poor thing drinking his ocean sprayed, so people are doing that, too. And this is when I finally figured out what's going on here. It's literally this guy is literally the answer to this country's problem. It's basically that he is Trying to exercise a demon from this country. A demon of flop the demon of laziness. Basically getting out chillin looking good feeling good and being happy and singing a song Or at least lip sinking a song that talks about. Well here you go again. You say you want your freedom? Yes, we want our freedom. Isn't it odd that something this mundane Has captured the imaginations of Americans across the country watching this on video on Tic Tac. About Calling him an exorcist is kind of crazy, right? But I said in the last hour We're dealing with the brain in the mind here. We're dealing like you know what the mind is. That mind wants to be free the brain. You know, it's just It's just some tofu. Like matter. It's in your head. The brain wants to be free the brain. Is about thoughts is about feelings about memories about believes is about, you know experiences. And you know, we've been having a hard time, you know, figure out where the brain and the mind come together, and scientists are talking thing about pants like Is there anything about the experience? But when you're looking at things like Possession. When you're looking at programming, we'll go see those were things of the mind is basically taking the neurons and firing them in different directions, And it's kind of a neural plasticity in a way where you know you're just adapting to things that you don't know why you're adapting to them or you're just so depressed. You don't want to. You want to do anything. So this guy doing this doing what he wants to do being free, You know, free thinking and No Cavaliers going down the road, No mouse gun. This is what we want to be. That's what we want to attain. Some of us don't do that. Some of us do. So for those who you know You listen to my show for some time and they talked to me, they said Clyde, I believe that what's going on here is some sort of a ritual. You know. Separation in the mask. No touch torture. It's a ritual. And They say. I don't know what it's a ritual four. But they say it's new Superior Satanic and they don't know how to explain it. They're a lot of people who read their Bibles. And you know, of course. Right now. There's a cloud of apocalyptic thinking that is permeated throughout the world. And there are many who see it is that you know the trials they must endure. And they say, Well, if I endure this to the end, I get a reward. I get salvation. I'm waiting to be raptured up. Another C. It is a demon, A demon that pauses itself is a virus that enters the mind influences people into wicked things. It is a demon that pushes leaders into becoming Meg Whitman. Maniacal dictators. It's the demon that possesses the young, destroyed property and harm people. It's also the demon that breeds entropy when many of us should somehow rise to the occasion. Exercise. That demon that has has vexed is the demon of Separation is the demon even of promising that it will take care of you? And you don't have to do anything. It will give you whatever you want. I don't have any self worth. You just said back. You just take it all in because you don't have to work. You don't do anything You don't believe. Don't do anything, you know. Socialism of courses. They will give you whatever you want. Just do what we tell you follow her lead. The only problem is that many people have not identified this demon and they have not named it in while the majority of people will Fall to the default action that this is some sort of satanic panic or the witch hunts everywhere. Adrenal chrome. I don't know what you call it, but anyway Actually, there's actually a name for this demon. It's called a CDO, but actually it's it's the demon isn't called the CD but a CD. It breeds this demon. It's a condition and a name given by the early monks to describe what is known as the noonday demon. Some communities. Better now facing.

Sleep Retreat

"This. Is Episode Two, thousand, Eighty, four of the daily Meditation podcast I'm Mary Mickley and I welcome you to the next to last episode of our series were exploring this week we're exploring an important theme. This is the theme of you sleeping while you've been exploring all week long a sleep formula. We've broken down the word formula which has seven letters and each day we've. Taken a letter and applied it to? A strategy for you to sleep better. So we started off with F., and we are now today at the letter l. And Represents laughter. All Week Long, you've gone through some tense. Emotional release. As you've explored a different meditation technique. To, help you. Manage your stress. And your emotions so you could sleep better. This is often the missing piece. For different recommendations to sleep better if you google. How to sleep better? You'll come across all these different lifestyle habits which are really powerful and can help you. By regardless of. How well. You set up your room to sleep better. How well you eat that day. The kind of movement you give yourself. All these things can help you. By. The key component to sleeping well, as long as you don't have. Anything medical going on. Is often how you manage Uri motions during the day. When you're stressed and tense throughout the day it really doesn't matter how comfortable your bad is at night. You're not likely to be able to sleep while. So, throughout this week you explored. How to release emotional stress and one of the best ways to do that. Is with a laughter. I always say that. It's good to have a meditation ritual that's a little rough around the edges and what I mean by that is don't be intimidated by your own meditation ritual try not to make it so precious that you can't live up to it. So if you find yourself meditating and a messy room noisy location. You're haggard and you're just. Really filling. Flustered Just know that that is often a perfect time to meditate. It's when your emotions are high high on stressed out distracted over wound emotions. And so when you sit down and allow your mind and body to calm down. If you said for. A few minutes that's great. You're still receiving benefits. You're going to want to sit longer and longer the more consistently use set for even a minute or two on a regular basis. You don't have to sit with your legs crossed on the floor on a meditation cushion with a candlelight and soft music every time you meditate. Meditate on the go doesn't have to be so. Perfect. I remember when my children were young and it was really difficult for me to find. The time or the space. To Meditate. So what I often did, as I, meditate as I waited for them at their different events. When I would sit in the car line that was really slow, and I would have to arrive to their school about half an hour early just to get a good place in the car line. I would meditate. I also would meditate when I would drop them off at their soccer practices. I would just maybe spend ten minutes or so in the car meditating, and then I would get out and watch their practice and it's not like I. got a really deep meditation but I definitely calmed my mind and body. and. The more you do this. The more you train your brain to be able to calm yourself. When you feel frazzled. And this will help you sleep better at night. Now for today. Your laughter. I recommend that you. Take some time today. I'm recording this Friday might be a different Danish listen to this. Do something that makes you laugh. Call, someone on the phone who makes you smile or? Watch a funny movie or read a funny book or listen to a funny podcast. Smile and release tension as you laugh. Laughter is good medicine. And when you do this on a regular basis, especially if you build it into your day. You're going to find that you start looking forward to these times of release. Where you're laughing.

Big tech CEOs testify before Congress

Big tech CEOs testify before Congress

"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content. When I say utopia what comes to mind. Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the perfect social body. Every Body Matt Place. Everybody happy now while the peacock original series, brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds. Pretty good. Right. Then why can't we make it happen?

These are really difficult crazy stressful times, and if you're trying to sort of cope, it could be helpful to find something that gets beyond like doom scrolling and like obsessive worried. But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world. We've seen now more than ever like how relevant policy is to our actual lives, but so much in the news isn't focused on really understanding and explaining detail way if that sounds good to you, join us for the weeds, every Tuesday and Friday to find out what's going on why matters and what we can do about it. You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

The US government is considering a TikTok ban

"TIKTOK has a history in Congress now. Josh Holly has basically been the main guy out to get to talk, but okay, so for the past year year and a half Josh Holly has had some hearings. He's invited to talk to testify, and then he's done these like wrestling style like hyper wheels on twitter, where he just like shows like an empty tick tock chair and he's like. Where are they and it's like we're guitar music album. Is Our personal information being made less secure by big tech, because of their partnerships with some of these questionable receive. At least. This has happened. We've been waiting all this kind of happened when Mike pompeo like randomly one night on Fox, news. It's like yeah. We're thinking about banning TIKTOK. And that's basically all he said, and then, of course, everyone's like what is happening, so the government can't really do a want to ban tiktok addy. Our colleague here on the policy dusted a wonderful story talking about all the ways that they could kind of get around. Banning them, but the one thing the government can do is banned other people in government from using. On their devices so. This week the House of A Josh Holly Bill that would ban federal employees from using Tiktok on their devices, and then just yesterday earlier this week. It made it through the Senate committee, so all it needs now is vote on the Senate floor to be approved signature and Tiktok. His banned from Federal Devices Military Tiktok is not a small community. No, it's huge. It's huge. It's huge I watch a lot of fighter jets land on aircraft carriers. Somebody took a very bad dad. TIKTOK I'll go. Is Very different from mine, so federal employees banned from using it. Is there any further motion like? Their moves right. You could like you can say it's a Chinese company. We don't want them like. We did it to Weiwei right, but we. We basically banned companies from buying equipment. How would you? How would you do that with Tiktok? We have this problem all the time. With like what regulator deals with tech, no one has any idea or they want a piece of it, and then they fight over it, and it's a nightmare, so that's part of the problem. We don't have in federal agency that really organizes around Blake Tech Regulation at all, so it's not like you can just go knocking on the. The door. It'd be like excuse me. Chairman Simon's please ban. Tiktok you can't do that so in the same way that the FCC jeep pie can be like no money goes to while away and then here's some money to dig it up and get it out of your system like we don't have the infrastructure for that and I think that's primarily the biggest problem here I mean. There's a couple of things that you could do with like foreign, Investment Sifi's. Sifi's stuff. It's all incredibly Wonky, but it's an incredibly difficult, if not impossible to just ban an APP, and that would have to do with like talking to apple and Google and APP stores and having you know what I mean having to com- completely direct what how they operate in some way. We just got done with a huge discussion about how apple has monopoly on after being on the iphone Google doesn't on Android, but they might may as well for. For most intensive purposes, especially here in the US, so if they can strong-arm apple and Google just pulling them off the APP store. That like it's pretty close I mean they're like Donald. Trump is like one iphone tariffs right away right? I mean but like I. Don't know if anyone is gonNA. Pull it off now, Casey. One thing that strikes me is even on my extremely lame Dad Tiktok I see so many creator saying is getting banned following instagram. It's a trend all over the place, and obviously trump and sort of the republican side of the the world are like Tiktok Chinese. We hate it. trumpet is I, think particularly pissed because of the rally narrative run TIKTOK that's Russell singles last week. Also delivers a lot of information to people in young voters in particular in Opaque Algorithm feed like that. It feels like yours zone has bubbled up beyond just a bunch of noise for you. Yeah, I mean like this is a Ben Thompson. Point which is that China has been in an information war with the United States for twenty years, and Americans have just pretended. It doesn't exist right like the point makes over, and over again is China started this fight? A social networks are not allowed to operate in China, and so the fact that. Albert Mickley based feed that is totally opaque. That is operating insider. Reporters should raise at least some national security concerns right like the kind of. Threat you worry about. Is You know what if the Communist Party decides that? It just wants to push a lot of pro-trump propaganda in the run-up to the election. You know it just because it would. It would so some chaos, and it would benefit them regardless of how likely you think that is to happen. The fact is that it could happen and. Should the the country have some sort of response to that? How should think about that? And you can take different views on it but I do think the thinking about what Tiktok is and how it could be used has been unsophisticated because as with every social product when it first got started. We all look at it and we think this is fun. This is a toy. Nothing bad could ever come from teenagers doing dances. And fast forward to the two thousand sixteen election has no one ever watched footloose I mean come on yeah. Look what happened. What state will allow dancing in that town? Lot of people think happy story I. Don't think that that is a movie about how town was ruined through dancing.

Improve Brain Health

"I'm Mary. Mickley and I wonder how you are doing this week. I hope you are noticing. How your heart feels win, you encounter stress. When you encounter joy. When you encounter the wide range of emotions, we all experience. D Today. In today's episode, we continue with our heart rain series. Where you are discovering. How to manage the health of your heart and brain? They are so interconnected. In, fact I was doing a little research for this series and I came across an article by Harvard Health Publishing. This is an article by Dr Monique Tello. It's titled Green. Health rests on heart. Health guidelines for lifestyle changes. And she starts off the article. Talking about how? Right now the world is experiencing an epidemic. That is projected to get much much worse. When I read that I thought she was talking about the coronavirus pandemic. We are experiencing. I read further and she is actually talking about an epidemic of dementia. Of affecting fifty million people. And millions more. Of their caregivers Dr Tallow goes on to say that. These staggering numbers are projected to triple by twenty fifty. So in this pandemic. We are all experiencing. There's this epidemic of dementia which stress contributes to so what we're experiencing now. Is Not likely helping to improve our odds. To battle dementia. Dementia is a progressive heartbreaking deterioration of brain functioning. Associated with aging. And there are different causes of dementia, the most common Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia Cz. Are, now thought to be closely related to and impacted. By this same diet and lifestyle factors that you follow for your heart. So you. Heard. Physical exercise such as hundred and fifty minutes per week is one of the number one ways to combat dementia and also to protect your heart health. Eating a plant based Diet in this article. Dr Tallow explains is crucial. She says there's so much substantial research showing that eating a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, which includes some healthy fats and seafood is associated with a significantly lower risk of cognitive decline and dementia and also heart disease. So. Think about your diet and the amount of. You're getting. These are also great lifestyle changes. We can make to improve our odds if we happen to contract the corona virus. It's also recommended to quit smoking and to minimize alcohol. Use especially if you already experience cognitive concerns. So how is heart health related to cognitive health? It has to do. With conditions that clog the arteries of the heart. They also clog arteries of the rest of the body including your brain. So it all boils down to damage of the arteries. The blood vessels that are critical blood, flow and oxygen delivery to the organs. Reducing stress and making sure that you have positive relationships in your mind. In fact, there's other research that shows that. Your relationship are pivotal to your heart health and your brain health especially romantic relationships. If you're married or have a partner. These significant relationships in our lives impact our heart and brain health greatly. So take care. Of Your heart and your mind. By eating well, exercising by staying away from alcohol and smoking. And reducing stress and improving your relationships.

"I'm Mary Mickley and I welcome you. Mid Week to our series were exploring on brain health in regard to memory. And I want to ask you. How is your challenge coming along this week? Your challenge that I encourage you to do every single day throughout this week. Series is a challenge. I hope you will continue to do from here on out and that is to learn something new this week. I am learning how to play the harmonium. It's an instrument I received as a gift recently and I've been wanting to learn how to play it. Maybe I'll share with you. The results of my efforts. I'm sure it will take me some time to become proficient but when I do I will guide you through a chant. I really enjoy at least once a week to sit down and do some chanting before I meditate. So how about you? What are you learning to do? I challenged you to learn something that didn't take a whole lot of setup to begin to do right away in fact another challenge for my memory. This week is to memorize my credit card numbers. This for me would be very useful so your challenge could be pretty simple. It might be memorizing a poem or a song or a prayer that you've always wanted to remember when you use your brain regularly and challenge it you retain your memory much better. I want to share with you. A few lifestyle habits that can help your memory and these are habits that you may or may not already do. I know you do at least one of the habits and that is mindful meditation. Because here you are showing up for yourself doing one of the best things you could possibly do for yourself as you learn to do different meditation techniques to calm your mind and your body. The first lifestyle habit that can help to improve. Your memory is to stay away from sugar. In fact sugar is one of the worst things possible for your brain. It interferes with your memory and even a single instance of elevated glucose in the bloodstream can be harmful to your brain can result in slowed cognitive function and a deficit in memory and attention. In fact there is some research that suggests that a high sugar consumption can cause inflammation in your brain and this can lead to memory difficulties so your brain on sugar is not a good thing the next thing you could do to improve your lifestyle to improve your memory his to give yourself regular doses of aerobic types of physical activity it might be running or dancing or any other kind of aerobic activity and what this does is it helps to increase your oxygen capacity and this helps to improve your memory now. There are many many other lifestyle habits that I'll be sharing with you over the week but those are two that I encourage you to do today. You could stop eating sugar today even if you find it. Hard to refrain from sugar completely. At least cut back on your sugar intake. Also you could do something aerobic. Even if it's jumping jacks or just doing something simple and easy by turning on a youtube video and dancing that can be a great way to in prove your

Percy Liang: Stanford University Professor, Technologist, and Researcher in AI

"I guess today's Percy Lag. Percy's an associate professor of computer science at Stanford University also one of the top technologists that semantic machines. His research goals are to make machine learning more robust fair and equitable and to make it easier to communicate with computers through natural language. He's a graduate of MIT and received his PhD from UC Berkeley. Hey Percy welcome. Show things have happened so we always start. These shows with me asking How you first got interested in technology. Were you a little kid when you realize that you're interested in this stuff? Yeah I think it was a round maybe and of elementary school or Middle School My Dad always had a computer so it was around but he didn't let me play with it. And what you do. He was a mechanical engineer. Gotcha and I remember maybe my first memories are In after school In middle school there was a computer lab and there was There is a hypercard which is multimedia program for the Macintosh back then and it got really fascinated and building these Militantly simple applications. But they had a scripting language so you could start to code a little bit and there's animation and all that so it was kind of fun to get into that I remember hypercard as well I I believe one of when the first programs I wrote I maybe a little bit older than you are But I do remember at one point writing a hypercard program that was Like a multimedia thing that animated a laser disc like you remember laserdisc gigantic precursors to DVD's Yeah this is really such a great tool. Yeah at that time. I also tried to learn see but that was kind of a disaster. What are pointers and all this stuff? This is sort of a formidable Formidable first language to attempt to learn I mean like one of the things like given that you are Your Computer Science Educator You know I. I'd be curious to hear how you think about that. Evolution of entry into computer science on some levels now. It seems like it's a lot easier to get started than when we were kids. Maybe but in other ways it's actually more challenging because so much of the computing environment like the low level. Details are just abstracted away and like the layering is very high. It's a lot to get through Yeah so somehow. Computer Science Thrives on abstraction right from the low level machine code to to see and we have python programming languages and At some level you just have graphical interfaces so picking the right entry point into that for someone as I think. There are multiple ways you can go probably wouldn't start with see if I were teaching intro programming class but more at kind of a conceptual level of here are the kind of computations that you want to perform And then separately. I think it's different class with talked to you about how this is actually realized because I think there is some value For A computer scientists to understand how goes all the way down to to to machine code but not all at once yet? It's I am still convinced that one of the one of the most useful things I had to learn as Like a programmer. Who LEARNED TO PROGRAM? The eighties was fairly quickly. I had to learn assembly language. Like you had to know what the low level details where the machine now granted the machines were more or less complicated back than they are now but like just sort of at that atomic level knowing how the actual machine works Just made everything else that came after it. Less intimidating yeah. It's Kinda satisfying. It's kind of rounded playing with blocks. So you you started with hypercard And like where did things go from there? Yeah so for a while. I was I I think I also learned basic. I'm just kind of tinkering around There was and Like today as many resources as you can imagine for just. No kids interested in Programming so a of it was kind of on on my own I think maybe a turning point happened at the beginning of highschool where I started participating this Usa Computing Olympiad. Which is a programming contest? You can think about is the programming contest. But I really think about as kind of algorithm problem solving contest so the the problems that they give you are It's kind of like a puzzle and you have to write a program to solve it But much of the the work is actually kind of coming up with insight of how to what algorithm to do kind of efficiently so an example might be How many ways are there to make change for Two dollars museums certain set of coins and it would be kind of Rica moment when you found. That's how you can do it. And then you have to code it up so I think that competition really got me to And a value this type of Kind of rigor and attention to detail but also a kind of creative aspect of computing. Because you have to come up with on news types of solutions that's awesome and so what was What was the most interesting problem you had to solve? In one of these competitions oh That's a really good question I think it's been a while so I don't remember all the problems but one. I think One memorable maybe class of problems is Around the idea of dynamic program and so this idea that you can write a program and if you do it smartly you can make something that would otherwise run in years millennia in a matter of seconds and I remember having to it was always these problems and you have to really figure out. What was the recurrence relation to make it all all work and a lot of problems. Were centered around. Yeah was it one of the amazing things about the dynamic programming technique is it really does teach you and it might be one of those foundational things when you're getting your head wrapped around how to think. Algorithm Mickley about problem decomposition. Yeah because like I. It's one of those magical things. Where if you break the problem down in just the right way. All of a sudden A solution to the problem becomes Possible when it was intractable before. Yeah Yeah I think I liked it because it was an that you had to memorize a bunch of things or you learn if you learn these ten algorithms and ub set but it was kind of a much more open ended way to think about Problems yeah that's awesome and so You go to. Mit As a undergraduate student. How soon did you know exactly the thing inside a computer science that you wanted to do that? I think took a little bit of evolution so coming out of high school. I was much more interested in his algorithm IQ questions and got interested in computer science theory because that was kind of a natural segue So it was and I started doing research in this area and it wasn't until towards the end of my undergrad where I Sir. Transitioning INTO MACHINE. Learning or AI. When was this what year this was around? Two Thousand Four. Okay Yeah says still like machine? Learning was people didn't use the word back. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean I remember like right around that time was when I joined Google and I've been a compiler guy when I was in academic insult like I'd never done I never done at all and like I didn't know what machine learning was when I started and yet you know three months after I joined Google I was tasked with doing a machine learning thing. You know reading this giant stack of papers and formidable textbooks Trying to trying to get myself grounded but it means a very interesting time like two thousand four and like you know you sort of picked a great time to learn annoy idea that it would be the feel that it is today and why. Why was that interesting so I can sort of get? Why the theory was interesting. Love these problems and the challenge of what was interesting about machine learning. I mean I think there's definitely this Background would be kind of mystical aspect of intelligence that I think I'm not unique and can be drawn to so When there was an opportunity to connect the things that I was actually doing with a theory with some element that I took opportunity to kind of get into that and they say that Mit for my masters which was on Machine learning natural language processing So then that kind of Roy cemented kind of direction that I really started

Quality Time With Yourself

"Welcome to the daily Meditation podcast. I'm Mary Mickley. And I honor you for showing up for yourself. I know there are so many things you could be doing right now. But what you're doing as you get ready to meditate may just be the most important thing you do day in today's episode. We have reached the final episode of our seven part series. We've been exploring this week on French. The Art of cultivating and maintaining friendships throughout this series. You have discovered some tools to help you become clear about the kind of friends that would be best for you as well as what you have to offer others and feeling confident and taking unique approaches as you cultivate new friends. In today's episode you will be guided in a reflection meditation. Taking a look over your week. Now you may just be joining us in. That is fine because whether or not you are focusing on a particular theme for a Week. Which is what we do here at the daily. Meditation podcast and on the SIP and App as well. That's where you can go a little more deeply into meditation. You can try this APP for two weeks free. And it gives you free access to the full lap of over seventeen hundred guided meditations there as well as weekly journals and guides that are customized around that theme again. That is this sip and home meditation APP. If you want full half hour guided meditations two weeks for you absolutely free now here you are and when you think about building the kind of clarity that makes life so much easier to live. That's really what meditation can do for. You is to allow you to assess what your stress triggers are. And how you're doing how you're feeling so easy to numb out or to staff your feelings and so as you meditate you allow yourself to become aware of what's really going on in your life so it's important to do a reflection type of meditation where you go back through your week or even through. Your Day. The Dalai Lama is noted to do this technique daily. So you could do this daily before this episode. I'll guide you as you go back and reflect over your whole week. Now as you do this you will be noticing. Every single thing you did throughout the week you would be meditating quite a while if you did that simply notice the highlights of your week and in particular notice what was difficult for you and why something or someone or some situation was difficult for you may have triggered that experience and how you responded and maybe how you wish you would have responded. This is how you improve. Constant self improvement involves this reflection and also notice what went well for you. Your big wins for the week and notice what triggered those feelings of happiness and peace notice. What makes you tick? This is the true essence of doing a reflection? So as you settle yourself down today calm your mind and your body begin to notice your breath. Your breath will reveal to you the kind of emotional state you're in your breath and your emotional state are interconnected

How do you know when you're in a fasted state?

How do you know when you're in a fasted state?

"We have a a question from amy and the subject is physical signs when in a fasted state. Amy Says Hello. I have just started listening to your podcasts. Recently on my daily commute to and from work I've been doing it for about three weeks now so far I love it. I have a bad relationship with food and this is really helped me realize that I'm truly. He's not going to starve to death. I don't need to eat as often or as much as I thought I did. My question is how do you know when you're NFL. Did State are there any physical signs to look forward to no. I understand it usually takes about twelve hours to reach the fasted state but curious if there are any actual signs or symptoms to let me I know thanks so much have a great day. Yes so this was a really interesting question because when I was thinking about it I realized that I guess there's technically Mickley gingy thinkers technically difference between like the fasted state and being in Ketosis. Well I mean you can be in Ketosis not in the fast and state if you're like eating foods that put you you know your body's making key towns from but if you're not eating and you're in Ketosis that's from fasting but I feel like a you could be because when I was thinking about like. What is the fastest state I guess? Technically it's when you're not running off of food in your digestive track so you're running off of body fat stores key tones in. I guess you're you could be in a fasted state and not being ketosis if you're still depleting glycogen stores. Yeah Yeah so you don't. Yeah so I think you don't have to be in. Ketosis is to be the fastest. Now that when you think about it like that because I'd never really thought about it and question maybe think about it. So but as far ars like typical signs in such I mean that's why I was thinking about a tube because we often do the science of Ketosis but I was like well technically might not all all be you know completely that could be other things as well but I feel like a lot of subjective stuff that people may or may not experience and I was also thinking thinking like there's not really any way of measuring it because we can't really say. Oh you could measure blood. You can't measure like blood sugar levels you can measure keystones but like we decided you can eat producing ketones. John's and be fed. So there's not really like blood biomarker you could measure. There's no way to know if there's food still paying processed. I you know a certain part of your digestive tract so I guess it's more just objective. Signs people tend to experience a sense of mental clarity. People experience the Kito breath which can smell like acetone or different smells different people. What difference would you say Gen? Yeah I think you're right with that. That's assange that your body is fat adapted that you're you're able to run on stored fat for fuel but you know the fasted state just means that you're not running on the foods you're not the the fence state means you're running on the foods that you consumed so once you're done with all the energy from those foods consumed like right that moment like that meal that would be when you'd be in the feds. I mean in the fasted state and in the fasted state your body's GonNa Shift fuel sources to sources sir already on hand like it could be fat. It could be your glycogen stores. You could be in Ketosis. Maybe you're not there yet but yeah once you're someone one who's been intermittent fasting for a while you can feel that shift when your body switches over to Ketosis

PODCAST I marry Mickley and here you are getting ready you to give yourself a little more peace energy and clarity as you slow down and connect to the best part of who who you are. That's the part of yourself that often gets lost in day to day living distractions and especially you as you prepare to close out Another year and get ready to celebrate holidays for many of you you in today's episode. I happened to be recording. This as I'm a passenger in a car it is in in fact my birthday and I'm going to a SPA a natural spring here in Florida to celebrate and sometimes since I record this every single day I need to take you on the road with me. So that's what I'm doing as I bring to you a nother episode and today's episode. You will discover a meditation technique as you get. Get ready to settle yourself down and meditate to cultivate your inner peace with a sense of empowerment comment as we're exploring the theme of inner peace. This week you are discovering how peace is not passive pieces pieces. Active it takes energy takes focus to engage your piece and in research that I have been exploring in for this week series on how people who are very active and engaged in life. Maybe some of the busiest. PS people you may know how these people manage to maintain inner peace. Of course not all of them. You maintain any kind of peace at all by a lot of explorers. A lot of great thinkers scientists people who are making a big difference in the world have a sense of passion and peace in their lives chiefs and they are often diving into unknown territory. Not sure how. Things will turn out in regard to maybe innovative ideas and businesses or inventions. They are pursuing but nonetheless. There is something fueling their passion their drive life in a way that brings him great inner peace and when you think about people who who are experiencing even extenuating circumstances in their life..

Human biases are baked into algorithms. Now what?

Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood

09:47 min | 1 year ago

Human biases are baked into algorithms. Now what?

"Algorithms the computer programs that decide so many things about our lives. These days can only work off of the human data we feed them which can of course be biased list based on race gender and all kinds of other factors recently. Regulators began investigating the new apple card. An apples partner Goldman Sachs after several. I users reported that in married households men got higher credit limits than women even if the women had higher credit scores Scipion noble is an associate professor at Ucla. She wrote a book about biased algorithms. And she said. The Data Algorithms Use to evaluate credit reflects a long history of women having little no financial independence or freedom. See Look at that. History happening in by the hundreds of thousands of transactions a month or more and that that starts to become the so-called truth or the baseline of data that gets collected into these systems and this is one of the reasons why women still have a very difficult time and I think the apple credit card was a perfect example of the flawed. Logics the unfortunate part is this happens a lot two working class people people who aren't rich and who may or may not even know what's happening to them when you look at bias in Algorithms Rhythms. Is it bias. That is introduced by the builders or by the data it's both because there's an assumption by the builders that the baseline data that they're using to train their algorithms is reliable or that it's just the truth. That's what happened and yes. That is what happened happened but it happened because of discriminatory public policy. But it's also about the interoperable data that's moving from one system to another system behind behind the scenes the way that financial services companies and insurance companies are trading buying selling data about us and making profiles about us that quite frankly we've probably are not very reliable. It sounds like you're saying that this is a problem. That is compounded in a whole bunch of different ways that I might be a programmer working on an algorithm them but I'm working with a flawed data. Set that has maybe been passed through multiple companies and contains many errors that you know the consumer will never be able to correct because they'll they'll never see them. I mean it feels a little intractable as a problem. I think it is intractable and I think we are entering a new era of you've need for consumer protection from these kinds of scenarios that are happening again every day all over the world quite right. Frankly and it's very difficult to figure out how you're going to you reconcile and we know that people have a hard time. I'm just correcting things on a credit report. Well Time's up by potentially dozens of companies that are again making data profiles about us us that are determining whether we have access to a mortgage to you credit small business loans. We might even see in the future. College admissions Sion's high school admissions all kinds of predictive analytics being used in determining whether we will have an opportunity or not and I think this is something something. We've got to pay attention to right now. Is it possible to construct algorithms. That don't perpetuate bias like. Is this even a problem. That technology can solve this. This is not a problem that can be solved by technology because there is no perfect state of mathematics. That's going to solve these kinds of social inequalities the way that Algorithms get better as when society gets better when we don't discriminate when we have a ways for people to be restored after they've been discriminated against in when you compound that by decades or even centuries of discrimination you've got US address US those kinds of fundamental baseline issues. The technology is not going to be able to mitigate that long legacy of data and information. That's feeding it and and these are the kinds of things that I think when we hear people say we're trying to make an unbiased algorithm we might want to raise an eyebrow and say how is that even possible because because you'd sort of have to invent in some ways a history or equalize data that can never be equal. Well you would certainly have to mitigate or account for the a lot of discrimination and then figure out how. You're going to resolve making some type of predictive analytic or algorithm died. died reconciles that. Maybe there's a restorative kind of field of algorithm design that might emerge where we can truly mitigate indicate on a mass scale that kind of inequality. But you know it doesn't happen just at the level of math it happens in the real world with access to affordable housing using access to good jobs healthcare education. I mean you you have to think about all the systems in our society and simultaneously addressed those those things. To how pervasive is this technology. What are the stakes? Is this technology. Already in ways that we aren't necessarily aware of the the technology I think for people in the United States and throughout your Ab- certainly parts of South America and the continent of Africa is increasingly ubiquitous. So if you are using the Internet if you're using Internet connected devices smartphones Computers all kinds of electronics. You are kind of in this Internet of things that is trying to figure out who you are and signed aggregate you into groups that can be sold to advertisers. So there's a constant kind of twenty four by seven level of extraction that's happening from the public In order to capitalize upon our emotions upon upon our sentiments are curiosities And I think that you know we might find ourselves in a place down the line where there's a well curated life experience that happens through all the data that's been collected about us and our families we certainly see things like banking and financial services using our social networks to determine our credit worthiness that means a lot for people who are. Let's say a first generation college students people trying to aspire to the middle class whose whole community whole neighborhood whole family has been working poor an algorithm that. You'RE GONNA stay in that state so I think we're GONNA see more and more of these systems intruding upon the quality forty of our lives and we need to just take a moment and we need to really think about why this is okay. We certainly wouldn't let other industries like pharmaceutical local industry for example experiment with drugs and roll it out and CVS and Walgreens on the weekend and say let's see what happens. We need that kind lanes of oversight on these technologies. They shouldn't really just be made and rolled out to on the public. And then we find out the consequences later. I mean we are moving At full speed it seems like toward an Algorithm Mickley determined society. Like what do you think some of the solutions might look like or the protections. I think we're going to have to reconcile that we need public policy. We need kind of antidiscrimination laws that are specific specific to you. The tech sector and the way that Tak is making kind of predicting decisions or or foreclosing opportunities or opening up opportunities opportunities. We need to be able to see into those processes but it's not enough just to make the code transparent. I mean I'm not sure that it's particularly valuable for for an everyday consumer to see ten pages of computer code and now that they can see that say. Oh now I understand what's happening. It's completely transparent. said that's not the solution just the total transparency. I think people need to understand. What does it mean that the the GPS tracker that's on your phone is combined with the data that comes through your fit bit? And your biometrics is communicating with your insurance company might be available to your employer. You know all of the ways that this data gets coming golds and developed and then You know you wake up and you're not really sure what's been handed to you what's been afforded to you. What opportunities can come your way because you really? We don't know the decision making processes that are involved in all of this kind of predictive analytic work. And that's something that I think we're just in the beginning stages ziff thinking about regulating and quite frankly. It's difficult because our policymakers aren't even entirely sure how these systems work. I'm not even convinced. In in fact that all of the tech companies as they're interacting with this data know entirely what will happen it feels like a bit of a mass experimentation mutation on the Public Sufia Noble is a UCLA professor and author of the Book Algorithms of oppression how search engines reinforce racism last week Goldman Sachs axios.

How to Think About and Lead AI Projects in Business - With Bret Greenstein of Cognizant

"How and technical professionals can advance their career in the era people are worried they don't write the code they don't have a firm background in math but they wanna be compensated more they want an exciting career what is your advice your your thoughts for folks who are in that position I think the first thing to consider is that like a lot of ends or let let me back up artificial intelligence is coming it's going to be an every job in every business and every company every one of our clients on a on a journey towards offbeat eyelid business that's not going to change and I understand that he worry about what that means to them personally but when you really step back a number of people implement a I code developed models tune models feed data outlets those roles are very small there are billions begins at people doing all the other jobs and so those people need to consider this is not about learning to code it's about learning to work with and understand vacations and data into business so once you become I'll call it wear algorithm Mickley aware data where once you recognize that our business this is our lives our governments are everything is basically a giant low of data making meaning that and making better decisions is what all of us needs learn how to do not cook coatings rate that's not the point yeah so so I I'd love to dive into what that means making meaning the data you know there's so many places where the non technical expertise plays a role like you said actually building tuning constructing the models doing the the wacky hard math to innovate new models on that's that's a certain percent of the work but it's not most of it what are those other big areas what are those other big kind of clusters of kind of a I value that don't involve writing liquor coat you know how do you break those down in your mind or kind of determine him into pillars or categories or what have you I think it comes from people who recognize that one that it exists being aware that all the data that's there has value and can be applied for new insights is a new way of thinking it's people who are really very data aware and once you have that it's a bit of a wakeup then you suddenly look at problems differently I met a student recently he was working in retail store and he works looking at the camera watching people checking in and out of the store and they're looking for theft and he could continue to look at those cameras and try to catch people doing stuff and you catch a percentage of that but what he arise because he's a digital thinker is that there's a ton of other data it's useful in assessing the risk of cameras using a I came to Texas haters and motions of people who were likely you know contributing to that you can look at the data what's going on in the parking lot from a camera vision or censored or mobile data to know you know are they come to every store or do you have the same customer every store that same day it can be seen stuff there might with a pattern there so once you consider there's more data in what you see in front of you we start to look at the problem differently and you start asking new questions so this one person I talked about is asking his boss when we're kind of systems will use machines Asian and can we look at patterns and can we see what's happening under the stores suddenly asking really good questions that were Cardi B. process in in order to do that these people have to have an understanding I presume of what they I can do and also maybe even some examples of precedents of other AI use cases right he would have to know that the detection of the behavior of theft is a use case is that is valuable that is reasonable that is a accessible so there's there's sort of some contextual knowledge there right I mean if if the fellow never knew anything about it ah you might not have that idea what's that background info that somebody has to have to come up with ideas like that to think of new areas of business value to to determine those those pockets where could be applied meaningfully yep this is where awareness comes in so people more non coders but are studying business or finance or HR can't whatever whatever they're studying in school whatever the majors reminders in every profession there's an impact a that is coming in so we need people to start focus on learning about the same I was an engineer but I took psychology and philosophy classes those European I need electing cool and I learned something about plus ecology but I'm not an expert but I became aware I became aware how human motivations and behaviors shape decision making or the philosophical side heights of right and wrong and moral ethics and logic than learn from philosophies those accept applications in the technologies is that I work in now and so I think for all the consider having to learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of ai how do we build it into curriculum how do we individually studied independently if you look up education Antony online almost all of it is based learning python and R. do data scientists but we need more people educating on what the implications are so we can ask more of our technical teams to bring us to that next level of really nail it business I if somebody service taking your urine by seriously here okay they can become a aware they can find those opportunities they can you know add value to the business without being the one who writes the code but being the one who may be on helps to determine new projects or helps to manage bringing new way I project to life they don't have to write the code to be the one managing a project others a lot of different ways that they could potentially be be I loved on new training transform your team we have I'll give you an example so we have a customer service being done by call center reps all over the world you know our company but every company does when I noticed recently China that they've increased this dramatically percentage of customer support during sales especially peek sale all times towards chat bots conversationally I and if you know the day is capable of doing that and you're getting a call center you should be asking yourself can we take the top eighty eighty percents of the questions the Cuban as they come in and move them to some degree of automation whether it's chat bots or or you have to know the compensation only I exists in possible doing certain things and it's not possible doing ups yes you have to have those precedents of use in your mind you have to know where it where it's being applied where it's driving value who's using it to solve what kinds of problems what kind of data is involved you have to have

The logistical mess of trying to clean up Youtube

"On today's daily charged supercharged edition diving on youtube score problems with its creators and how unionizing may or may not really be the answer uh-huh so is actually kind of quiet today and i'm wondering if that's actually something algorithm at play. Perhaps the fact that the topic of the show joe is kind of bashing youtube youtube is somewhat burying us sure. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but <hes> well this unfair. I know this is one of the things because everything is transparent. It's opaque with with youtube. We don't know if the reason that there aren't very many people there are fewer people will the normal that would be in our livestream. We don't know if that's because people are just not interested. We don't know for getting albert. Mic lee depressed or suppress. These are the kind of things that small to medium youtube youtube channels wanna know and they aren't getting at that's why they're making these pushes. Okay bye does youtube. Oh the anything that's that's the thing they are creating a video for the platform in a lot of cases. What is it one of one of the folks that you you interviewed said that <hes> <hes> they create suffer facebook and twitter as well facebook and twitter do not send them a check youtube sends them check so beyond that does is it necessary for them to have have more of a relationship <hes>. It seems at least at this point youtube doesn't seem to think so by the union is arguing for changes <hes> you you know having a human on the other side actually explained things on its face. It seems to make a lot of sense but how many of those employees are actually going to have to exist to be able to explain things in the same time you get into a lot of nuance in a lot of nitty gritty <hes> and you might have to explain certain things about <hes> the algorithm gerrad them and how to actually operates. I can really just see how youtube would have a big problem trying to explain some of those things especially through a human operator right well this situation right now. The the question is does youtube. Oh them anything. It's both yes and no it depends on how you look. At what is the backbone phone of youtube like what's youtube would be nothing without content creators willingly uploading their content. If all of the small to medium ones disappeared and went to another platform that would mean youtube still have tons of us but it wouldn't have the diversity of community that it has house because part of the thing that makes youtube youtube is not just pudi pies there. It's that you can also watch composting educational videos which is all the the great thing about youtube and the bad thing about you. There's so much content. It's almost impossible for them to handle what they've created at the scale and i'm includes youtubers demand so what youtube saying is that it's gotten to the point where you need to address user safety. You adjust brand safety for advertisers. You've put those on the front burner but you aren't putting us on the front burner. We're gonna make thank you at least address. The address a possibility that you'll take our needs as seriously as those are certainly curious to see how things move forward the l._g._b._t._q. T. q. plus lawsuit because not having watched any of that content. I am certainly wondering why that would get demonetized just or they are. That's why they're doing. They don't know they feel like it must be something like their claim is that there's no other explanation that is just discrimination that it's a gay thing as a as they have been told by somebody at the company when they're on like a service call okay wow that is certainly unfortunate and sounds like it merits a lawsuit so we'll see what happens. Obviously i think i actually don't know what they've said what their actual statement on the suit is <hes>. I'll pull it up because in fairness. We should say how google has responded so far. They haven't had an official legal response. I haven't filed anything yet <hes> but as brian launch you give us some questions and i'll make sure that we get that up so we can give their side well update. We have been democratized. I'm shocked. I'm looking at it right now like it was because of the bleeping or do you think it's because of other other just no way that their algorithm works so fast that it caught the bleeps and besides there bleeps that's the point reyes is because because we tag the show with fair tube against whatever it's it's a new show whatever but i think that the issue here is this is the kind of thing that frustrates a lot of youtubers that are on the aren't on the scale of a p._d. Pie or your brothers or even or even to find brothers which is smaller. It's like one fifth the size of that you know right. We just don't know why it is important to mention that. Obviously we started a new channel and we have under five hundred subscribers subscribers at this point but this is not our <hes> this is this is not how we're paying the bills like were seen at employee and we don't get paid whether other youtube sends us money or not like that doesn't end up in our bank accounts which gives us the opportunity to talk about whatever the hell it is that we want to talk about whether the were demonetized for the a day or night <hes> but it is interesting how quickly i'm glad you brought that up ben <hes> but the point hand is not about the money this this is clearly headhunting on youtube part and that's a form of censorship. I didn't even know the term. Censorship is it's. It's a squishy term because censorship serbia some people would say it's a private plot for it's a privately owned company <hes>. It's not a government utility. It's not like you have a right to free speech on youtube they ah within their rights to to to algorithm mickley not recommend or or depress anything that they want <hes> what their stated stated premise is that it's here to be an open forum to the extent that that's safe you bring up a great point as far as whether people have first amendment rights on major platforms. That's an argument argument legally. They don't that's an argument. That's currently being considered at least as <hes> we start to discuss the potential break-up of big tax or talking talking about facebook google amazon and help me out here. It's not microsoft. Never mind the big guam all the big ones so it's one of the arguments especially as it relates to youtube and facebook as you know. Have they become so big that <hes> some people do have some level first amendment rights to say whatever it is that they want to say on those platforms and when they do become demonetized or deep platforms or whatever you wanna call it some sort of legal argument against that that goes back to the lawsuit that we were discussing previously i would also say though that <hes> that legal argument at least in terms of optics i think would have been stronger than make like four years ago or three years ago. I feel like since we've entered through this era where we are so much more skeptical of these gigantic platforms not in terms of save us having speech but of the fact that they allow too much free speech <hes> there's been so much backlash against you know objectionable content speech those sorts of things that didn't it wasn't part of the conversation nearly as much three years ago four years ago right. I remembered what the fourth companies it's apple but apple is treated the same way ought not only that but like a lot of the arguments related to the break-up of big tech related to apple have a lot to do with how they operate their app store where they're both a player and a coach they operate the platform perform and they also have apps on the player and a coach in a rough actually yes. They're all there every more like a player in a referee right yeah exactly they run the platform perform and they're also on the platform and therefore there are a lot of <hes> considerations as far as whether they are appropriately running things in a fair way for everybody. That's involved in that system right so but yet they're certainly from from my perspective. They seem to be getting way less heat as it relates to this than i facebook facebook seems to be the one. That's getting the most attention but i feel like youtube. There's a lot of free speech consideration there too and that's why you know this is an interesting conversation to discuss as far as what this union is hoping to get out of those and you know the fact that youtube facebook youtube the entire collection of companies is facing so much pressure on so many fronts. That's another reason why i feel like creators like those that are represented by this union. <hes> feel like they're not getting their voices heard because there there's not a backlash of people they'll be a backlash over objectional content being served the kids on youtube kids being exploited on you to be a backlash against hate speech on youtube to a certain certain extent depending on what kind of speech it is <hes>. There's not really a backlash for people that feel like they're being unfairly democratized or not getting the due conversation from the fat from that as well. That's one interesting argument that you mentioned is is that in your story it was it was kind of like a one of one of the more cynical arguments about the union was are these smaller medium sized players frustrated that they're not bigger that they aren't some of the more successful players because like hey if you were if you were good at this. Maybe you'd be bigger and you wouldn't can have to complain so much. I mean like a pretty tough thing to say to somebody but at the same time when you're talking about unionization starting to bash the platform so you can see that there could be that kind of backlash to yeah and you know i think that so hank green and i talked about this in my story about how there's just. It's a lotta things at play here. The reasons why big youtubers wouldn't be responding. They don't want to bite the hand the feeds them they have a stake in not rocking the boat and also so there is an element of not only like if you were just complaining because you're channels not big enough in the point that he made is that yeah there's a strain of that maybe in some very large youtubers thinking partly because those big youtubers notice sacrifices they've had to make in order to stay as big as they are but i think most being youtubers understand that lottery who gets to be gigantic you it's table stakes that you have to work hard for it and commit your life to it in order for you to become gigantically stratospheric successful on youtube but some of those just look and they didn't get as lucky as me also hang hang space point. Is that sorry. Sorry just didn't hit the lottery and like i. They should have picked different number. Why aren't you smarter thanks. It's true that there's that vein possibly in some large thinking but it's also important that they realized that that's not the only thing going on here that there are some legitimate concerns for these small to medium size is a great point though i really i really appreciate that argument because it's you know there are a lot of things that really involve involve luck and when you look at kind of the opacity of the youtube algorithm along with a lot of other algorithms exist online. That's an addition. You're layering on top top of that just like the life lottery of you know. know. It was your timing right did you did you hit the right audience that kind of stuff too so those those two elements can can obviously obviously bake in a lot of uncertainty as far as whether you know you're you're a huge channel or not for the guy. That's really pushing the this union. I wouldn't have expected somebody eh builds. I dunno souped-up. Slingshots have two million viewers two million subscribers so at least to me. That sounds like a lie. I don't know maybe people alive alive and even less than that is it just depends on you know if you're trying to make it your livelihood you know people who write about educational occasional topics have a lot less trouble with the monetization they can have a channel with fewer videos and fury subscribers fewer views because maybe like two thirds of what they're writing about doesn't get democratized where like if you were say a news channel that talks about controversial topics sometimes like build a franko go or if you're transgender youtube earn you're talking about sexuality on a regular basis which also has tendency to bump up against what seems to be the unclarified criteria about what is okay and what is not okay so. I'm glad you brought up filled franko because i knew something what happened with filter franko like a couple years ago speaking out about youtube right so can can you remind me a bit about this because there was a case as where a major youtuber was speaking out about concerns with the platform right so that was the hashtag youtube is over party that so philly maybe if i remember right like going back into my my files if i remember right the reason for that that was a particular it was a demo basically democratization issue and i believe what happened at that point was <hes> youtube was making what should have been a very small mall tweak. I think what they were doing is they. Were trying to be more transparent with youtube creators in that previously. I don't think that there was a easy way to see in one place which of your videos were demonetized and so they wanted to be more transparent and create a way for you to see which ones were demonetized. The effect of that was that people realize oh. All of these videos are demonetized and so some people thought that they had been like all in one fell swoop on all of a sudden <hes> and that happened to filter franko. I can't remember the specifics if he actually noticed that he obviously he and his team keep very close. Run a tight ship and keep close watch on their channel. I can't remember if they actually noticed instances of like one day. They had so many videos radio's democratizing the next day. It was a lot more or if it was a combination of like they just realized more more. I'm not sure how it actually but it goes to the point of opacity casati passing so how how large influential youtuber can get the conversation going 'cause the hash tag youtube over party was trending on twitter all day <hes> <hes> that hasn't happened with with this thing but there hasn't been like a crystallizing moments and make people feel outraged enough to rally their supporters to work for this collective unified costs

"I think that, that the critical the media you love is, is distinctly different than guilty. Pleasure media for me. One is I'm enjoying most of this, even though I recognize that there are pieces of this, that, are, you know, might reinforce particularly harmful myths, where for me a guilty. Pleasure is something that I know is just one hundred like it's just there's nothing redeeming about it in the world. And that I don't know what damage it's doing to me by taking it in and contributing to the harmful values in the world, does that make sense. So a lot. The there are shows that I'll go back to. And that I'll watch that feel like my sort of like comfort blankets that I go to that. I think people would think are embarrassing. I don't consider those guilty. Pleasure media's because I for the longest time I said, I don't have any guilty. Pleasures like I just like what I like it. I'll enjoy what I enjoy. And I'm not gonna feel guilty about it that I that's not totally true. So an example of that is something like heart of Dixie which I may have brought up on the show before. But, like I enjoy that show. I think I've watched it twice. It's like it's not like it is a show that contributes a lot to the to any kind of John Ray of television. It's not profound is just like it makes me feel warm and fuzzy, and it definitely has issues, and it has all kinds of dumb things in it. But like you know, we all have those things that make us feel good. And like I don't think we should necessarily feel guilty about that the one that I actually legitimately feel guilty about, and then he keeps coming up on the Bydgoszcz because I've just recently rewatch. It, it is suits. It is a stupid USA show. And people probably only know it because Meghan Markle was on it, and that, like it got popularity when she became the Princess or whatever the hell she is. The duchess the Princess, I don't know what she is, and like that show to me is the quintessential guilty, pleasure because there's literally nothing about it. That is redeeming and not only is it not redeeming. It's actually harmful and I consider it to be a harmful thing in the world. It is about like to their other characters but to white dudes who are pompous arrogant assholes that use their era Gance, and they're sort of bullying in their power to get what they want. And that is like the entirety of the show. Everybody is manipulating each other. It's also a very like it's not low budget, but it's definitely like network television. Right. There's nothing there's nothing like Phil Mickley. Interesting about it. And then, like the women on the show are also deceptive and manipulative. And there's like all kinds of bullshit in it. And I think the, the, the thing that really troubles me is that part of the appeal and we see this we. See this in all kinds of media, that we that I would say would not put into this category, but that like that seduction of male dominated aggressive power, I think is really a problem, and there is something and I'm going to use the word seductive again because it really is. It's part of why this sort of arrogant macho superhero thing is so appealing to us is that we I think, as a society really are taken by this image of this, like arrogant, white dude, that is sort of manipulates their way or is just sort of pompous, and there's some kind of appeal that we have to that you couple that with violence, and you get things like the fucking avengers. You know what I mean? Like you get you get this really complicated space where it feels satisfying on this sort of visceral level for us. But if you break it down yet, like iron man is a fucking problem. Like just fully a problem, even though you might you, you could argue that they tried to complicate it. I would push back on that. So I think that that's where I land with guilty. Pleasures. There's two things there, I absolutely agree with you. That that's definitely what's going on with iron man. But part of what makes it vendors work for me is the other ventures..

"Computer against, you know, whatever against the VR against a robot against anything you on whatever is Albert Mickley programmed to respond to the pitcher, but the pitcher is alive the pitcher is has agency or you could have a scenario where the number of pitches thrown randomly programmed and the fielders are programmed, but the batter Israel in the batter is hitting a baseball that is delivered to him. And you get it. Yeah. All right which game. Are you watching which are which game? Do you think you would watch the the game where there are only human pitchers? There are only human hitters. There are only human fielders or there are only. Even base runners think only human hitters, right? You think I think I think only human fielders, I think hitters might be my third pitchers would be born. I like pitchers really pouring pitchers would be boring. Unfortunately, I wanted to be pitchers because I feel like the skill that pitchers have his actually the most interesting and the one that you that in some ways you can use the most imagination and your it's the only one where you're in control. And so you actually have your plan instead of simply reacting to thing. But unfortunately, watching the same thing over and over basically, it'd be watching archery with with movement with break, and I don't watch archery. So, unfortunately, although it'd be like watching bowling too and bowling is not a nothing sport. Like, it's not clear that any of these sports would be more popular than bowling. So bowling might actually like if you could say, oh, yeah. That'd be as big as bowling that might be the winner. Yeah. I mean. I mean, I don't watch bowling. But a lot of people do would it be a satisfying bowling, even if you put some pins behind there that you were not going over, maybe. But there's no feedback like that. If you're pitching in bowling, you have the target, and you could see in a very satisfying way. Whether you hit target in pitching not released like that. Something visual there, there'd be there'd be a screen in a it'd be like you'd be pitching to like a battering bases loaded two and he'd still hit the ball. And it'd be fake. But but it would there'd be a visual there. I think it could also be somewhat like watching putts in a golf tournament, which are probably more interesting than I like what about fine. So I am now. I think the pitchers may be would be. Okay. So then hitters. Everybody likes hitting of course. Yeah. But I feel like hitting would be kinda boring to watch in the scenario. But maybe not I don't know. It's it's batting practice. Right. Adding sport well, people show up the release to what's batting practice. Yeah. I mean, they certainly show up to watch home run derbies. Yeah. Once a year, but they do show up to watch batting practice. And that's not even a challenge. That's that's just like that's easy hit if you made it hard than that. Good. But then if. You could if you had only fielding, and you could guarantee a steady stream of plays that fielders had to run after chasing. So instead of like in this scenario there be no strikeout. Having the computer the computer hitter while the human right fielder. Like, you know picks dandelions, so there'd be a play every every pitch. Well in that case. Yeah. If you're not if you don't have to simulate it realistically, and so you're just defensive highlights are my favorite highlight in baseball. And maybe in all sports, even so obviously a lot of defensive plays are routine and not interesting..

"This is episode one thousand seven hundred and eighty two welcome to the daily meditation podcast. I'm Mary Mickley. And here you are getting ready to give yourself a little more peace, energy and clarity. Whether you are seated getting ready to meditate or you may be out walking doing errands as you listen to this episode. It's all good. We all start somewhere as we begin our meditation journey honor the process and honor where you are on this journey. In today's episode. We continue with our theme forgiveness one of the most important qualities you could, cultivate, and also one of the most difficult qualities you will discover an affirmation you can do as you meditate today. And as you go about your day, I recommend you repeat the affirmation in the morning when you wake up to start your day and in the evening when you get ready to drift off to sleep. So that you carry within you. A sense of what you're focusing on this week. This piece this freedom. Your affirmation is I am free. And what? Forgiveness entails is to let go of a bird in your carrying to let go have agreed Vince, you're harboring, and you can even feel as though you are entitled to feel this anger or hatred. Or sadness because of what happened to you outside of your control. And you may even feel entitled to rant and rave to cry to pound your fists. As you process. Your pain? If you could. Instead manager pain by relying on and folly back on your best qualities those strongest qualities your highest essence that you focused on in yesterday's episode. You can go back and listen to that. If you haven't done so already if you listen to yesterday's episode as you settled yourself down to meditate your technique for the day was to focus on those qualities such as maybe you have a gift for making people laugh or smile. Maybe you're very orderly untidy. Maybe you. Our great friend or parent take these positive attributes and deepen this will help you overcome and manage the burdens you carry the grievances. You harbor. Is it easy? It's not. That's why it's a journey forgiveness is not a one time done event. It is an ongoing journey where you aspire to your highest qualities or you descend into what can feel like a pet. That you can't climb out of. And you may find yourself acting in ways you never ever thought you can act or doing things that don't represent who you really are. And you can continue in a cycle. Like this for months years. It could even become your new way of living. So when something happens to you that causes you pain, and you didn't deserve it. But when it happens, you must make a choice as to whether or not you will ascend into the far reaches of your soul, digging deeply for those qualities, you really want to be feeling you really want to be expressing that you want your life to represent. Such as kindness love gratitude, compassion. Or? You may choose to descend. To where you are in mashed and hatred, and anger, and resentment we all have all of these qualities. We are all humans experiencing life things. We can't always control bad things can happen to good people and good things can happen to people who don't seem as though they're so good. So you can set yourself free from descending that long descent and the lower you descend the harder. It is to pull yourself out of that pit. So in your meditation today, focus on your best qualities ascend to those qualities. That's your true essence, so you really are. And as you do so I'll share with you, the affirmation know that if you wanna go more deeply into this series with thirty minute guided meditations as well as a journal, customized around this week's important theme of forgiveness and a slowdown guide

"Let's get to it, Leslie whose first and Missouri's on the line, and it's helped with some speckling. What's going on? I have basically that popcorn feeling and I'd like to know an easy way. It's not so Mickley to remove it. I wanna have a flat feeling or fortunately, you can't do that without the mess. Because you're gonna be quite a messy project. There are couple of tricks of the trade that will help you though. But let me kind of walk you through this. The first thing you need to do is to tested for specis because you wanna make sure that there's no in that sort of popcorn material you can pick up in this Festus testing kit. Most home centers in major hardware stores or you could use an outside lab, it's not terribly expensive. Once we know that it's not a specis. Then your first option is kind of what we call the wet scrape. And what you do is you start with comic a one gallon garden. Sprayer Gordon pump sprayer and you spray that popcorn material very lightly. Don't want to over spray, but you want to kind of saturate and let it sit for ten or fifteen minutes, and then you should be able to take spackle nine for putty knife. And simply scrape off that ceiling co slow start a small area. Make sure that it has absorbed the water. And once you've scripted entire ceiling. You can kind of take a survey of the job because I'm sure you miss some spots. And of course, the second option is to do that. But do it dry, and it's totally doable. Meaning it's been done. But with varying levels of success, it's not tot- totally encourage because if you do, of course, have any specis, obviously can't do it. If you have lead paint. That's the problem. It's much easier for stuff to become airborne. So it's a very very dusty way to go. Now, there is a tool that's available that kind of helps with this and one is called a popcorn ceiling scraper, and it's actually a vacuum. Attachment and tattoo, your shop vac or your wet dry vac, and as you sort of pull it across that surface and the debris scrapes off. It goes right into the vacuum. And then there's another one that home ax makes that's just like a very very wide scraper kind of like think of it as like a ten or twelve inch wide spackle blades, and that can help you with the project too. But you know, if you're desire was to try to do it. In a way, that was less messy. It's just not going to happen by nature of the beast. It's going to be very messy. And then Leslie once that stuff is down, you know, she's probably not going to have a perfectly clean ceiling as much as you would have if it was Fran new, but I think you do have to prime it before you're painting. Right. Oh, absolutely. And I was gonna say when you're scraping. Try not to like gouge too deeply don't want to damage the ceiling and a further in the process to give you more stuff to repair, but a primer is going to be really imperative, you know, latex, farmers are available at once that our oil base. You can get been or is in Zor. You really want to sort of seal in that surface?

And it does have a little bit more thickness than a regular wall paint would. But after that, I think you're going to be super happy. She ate my husband's laughing at me. He's laughing because he's not going to do it. Jeff in Nebraska's working on a vegetable garden, and we help you. I wanna make a rage garden dead. And you like one walks. What kind of what the best what is to use? I'm not having you know. So it doesn't get eaten away. And I have to reuse redo it every couple of years. So when you're saying would logs you want something that looks more natural. Yeah. I mean, what I wanna do is raise the bed up, and you're kind of the border freight and got that. But you want something more decorative rather than just pressure treated lumber boards that really do serve the purpose of containing the wooden raising the debt limit a little decorative first of all you want treated wood. Because if you have untreated wood, it's going to rot in terms of your options on treated wood. The most common option would be to use a pressure treated tie ties are available in either four by four six by six and they looked pretty rustic. And when you put them down they're going to be kind of greenish, and they'll look a natural. But, you know, give it a few months it'll start to gray out and lend in dry. Dry out yet blend in with the surrounding area. That's going to be the easiest most cost effective way to go, and you can pick up those ties at home centers, and they're really not very expensive because they're designed to be decorative and sit in the ground. They're not it's not the same kind of pressure treated lumber. You might use of your building retaining wall or something of that nature. It's basically just designed to be a border surround for garden or pool or something. Like that. Would I put it down in my going to have to they've got two or three stacked up and I going to have to drill them. And spike something into the ground. Good question. Now, if if you're going to have two or three of them stacked up you're going to what you're gonna wanna do is obviously alternate the the joints. So that you have one long go across to smaller ones. You know what I mean? Yeah. And then once it's all done you can pre drill and put in some long twelve and spikes that you drill through those you get along drill bit pre drill. And then put a couple of spikes. And that will hold it all together. Nice and neat. But you also find that the weight of them the sheer weight and the strength of them is pretty sturdy by itself. But if you want to really tackle together you can do that with long spikes. Or you could toenail it on on an angle with like number twelve common nails, the base just to kind of keep everything in place. If I didn't nail them together and then have deterred up against the mission. Go anywhere. That's right. They're pretty stiff pretty sturdy. Well, that answers.

"Again after just this one last purchase while ridiculous. Let's run with it. People who saw green make the final purchase and get offended. Never come back to the site. Again. We should be tracking metrics of repeat rates, maybe not in this case because it seems implausible. But in addition to click through rate on the checkout button, we ought to be checking for repeat purchase in and number of days or some sort of survival analysis type modeling like that. I find myself frequently referencing episode on good hearts. Law, it states that once a measure is turned into a target, it ceases to be a good measure. When an ecommerce store gets people to buy more goods. That's a target only for the ecommerce store. When a social media platform provides the mechanism for users to find content and ranks it algorithm Mickley producers of content now have an incentive to manipulate the algorithm. Surely the click through rate is important. So set up about net and start clicking on your own content. Now, eventually some clever team of data scientists inside the company should start looking into that problem. Actually, you know what it should start with the software engineers because frankly, most of the tricks people play are simple stuff. You know if they're using the same IP same cookie session data tracking, stuff like that, let them do it, but quietly filter them out of the data or better yet Mark them invalid and put them through the standard data pipeline that way when some data scientists at the other end wants to filter them out, that's easy. Or if they want to analyze trends in that area, they can still do it. Don't destroy the data, just lay. Able it storage is cheap. So I've taken you listeners on a little history lesson through the decades. As we've gotten into our topics of fake news. We started with spam filtering and discussed how the naive Bayes algorithm was an early winner in that space. Why was it easy to solve the spam problem? The spam problem did persist for a long time, but was eventually algorithms solved what enabled that to happen? Why could machine learning solve that problem? Well, for the same general reason, machine learning consult any problem. It's because there's some signal or pattern in the input data that allows for a clean separation of the classes. You're interested in spam and not spam, legitimate, click and fraudulent, click real or fake news. Now as mentioned, I'm quite confident. Spam filtering today is much more sophisticated than just some simple naive Bayes. Certainly a great number of features come out of the meta data network analysis, this sort of thing. But again, the data admits that signal and don't forget the user's own behavior. People who Mark emails as spam peop-. Who don't open them or open them and delete them quickly, open them in unsubscribe, open them, Mark them spam. Then the data easily admits the signals. You just have to use them somewhere along the way. These content providers decided they needed to monetize through advertising, much to my disappointment. People typically used the word organic to describe the sort of natural results. Organic is not the same thing as natural and search results contain no carbon. So not a great word choice, but we're stuck with it..

Facebook, Apple and Developer discussed on Daily Tech News Show

"You I and developer Iowa's, twelve developer beta five shows an ipad, no home button. Then vessels. And also no not. So obviously somebody at apple doesn't draw very well or maybe there's another explanation. Maybe there's a button was not was I had pro on the horizon maybe coming up this fall idea. I've tried to come up with something else that that could mean. San Diego, federal, jury, awarded Wilander, Canadian patent holding company. One hundred forty five point. One million dollars in damages from apple for infringing its patents. The iphone was found to have infringed to wildland patent related to wireless communications apple plans to appeal that ruling. So that's not over yet. Let's talk a little more about Facebook. Let's do it. Facebook is launching its own version of playable ads across its platforms and its ups. Playable ads. Let a player try out a game before actually downloading get a sense of if it's one, if you're going to want to do it and are more likely to keep playing after installing because the Ernie note that they like it basics playable ads launch a video of the game. I and then shift to HTML five or interactively. The effort wasn't beta for more than a years if it's because been working on this for some time, the company also introduced pretension optimization, which charges more for as delivered to people more likely to keep playing a game and value optimisation which helps. Target players likely to make inept purchases. So I guess that that largely depends on your past behavior. Yeah, there's there's a bunch annex go into that. Obviously, this is where Facebook uses all that data. They collect on to make predictions. I, this idea of playable ads is not new. It's something you've seen on Android as well. So of course, Facebook real internet out across the platforms means they're, they're tying into people who sell things in the app stores. I don't ever play those ads. Do you guys. I mean, certainly, I mean, obviously Facebook's functionality just rolled out so I haven't. I haven't been able to try it out there. Yes, I have strive in on the web when I'm like on my Android tablet. Yeah. And, and in general, especially when I used to do, I don't know more apt shows regularly where I was just downloading out after up. Anything that was playable game or or equivalent. That's that's a great feature. I mean there so many times you're like, this is actually what I wanted. I wish I would have known beforehand and then either delete the apper kind of just sits there. Facebook, knowing that there was probably a fair amount of that going on and trying to figure out. Yeah, how how? How will they allow advertisers to have a better understanding of who is downloading the stuff when they see it, but like is it to sort of a fluke or is this actually a valuable customer? Who's going to be beat be using using your game or your app for some time to come? That's a, that's an important. Action. Yeah. I wonder if those playable ads will translate to them actually downloading and purchasing the game just because I feel like a lot of the playable as I've seen anywhere are the kinds of games I would probably never down. On my own volition, but they're like fun. It'll bubbled jewel clones, right? Usually, I think do you play? I think I don't even I probably like see the demo and opponent to try to play like maybe one game, but it's not a kind of thing that I would ever download just because it's thought that I would do, but I can maybe maybe maybe people with. Different tastes in I, I have my be willing to do that, but that's the implication of the story. The reason Facebook has spent so much time and energy doing this is the advertiser saying, no, this works, we're, we're using this another platforms and the people who play the game when they download it are more likely to keep playing it. So we, we're just the wrong people because we either don't play at all in my case or we or we we don't download the game. In your case.

So it's basically it's like focus music while it's not always focused music. They have like focus, meditation, relaxing. They've got a bunch of different types of moods and the music is algorithm Mickley generated and it's doing some sort of fancy brain science that I don't really care to look into too much, but I looked into it. It's a rabbit hole that goes deep. Yeah, I, I don't care because when I when I use brain FM I focus better what? Okay. I like it better. I like all the tracks and it really helps me, especially with noise cancelling headphones. It's the kind of music where like it will help me shut everything out, but I won't be distracted and I don't get distracted with pure silence. I thanks to my brain. I don't have pure silence. Oh, there are thoughts all the time. No, it's it's very hard to like shut things out unless I had recently been meditating. Okay. So with brain FM basically, if I'm already in a distracted and a bunch of things running through my head state brain FM can help get me back into a lightweight. Let's ignore everything again because I basically can't function unless I shut out all the other thoughts. Yeah, if I'm trying to do something if I need to code the only way to do it is for nothing to exist. But the code that is where the best code comes from for me is when I can't even remember that I'm breathing, just coating and brain FM helps me get there better. Okay, so they have focused tracks. But like you said, there's also meditation sleep. Oh, yeah, there is one other one is light focus. Yeah, there's a light focus. Yeah, and yeah, I like them a lot to, oh, you can also do so I have.
