"There's been a lot of new issues on the move. Sam to Kansas City, Christie to Gotham to play with you midge. What moves are you guys most excited about either on your own teams or opponents you're excited to face? Well, you said it, I'm excited about Christie on my team. I think she's one of the most underrated players in the end of your cell and I truly believe that. And I don't think people will really respect that take because she is rated, but even then I still think she's underrated with the skills she has. Her soccer IQ was so high, matched with her athleticism, which you often don't find in a ten in an 8 type role. She's just brilliant. And I'm so excited to play with her and connect with her even more. She's fantastic. I was watching your game and there was just this moment where your goalkeeper was under pressure and Christy ran into this kind of space in the midfield, the ball gets cleared there. One time touches it back to your sitting midfielder, and then you guys are out. And I was just like, that was so subtly brilliant, and I don't think everyone's going to appreciate it. But we do. She's a problem solver. Chrissy solves a lot of problems that I think you wouldn't really see or appreciate unless you really understand football. It's so nuanced. Johan Cruyff once said playing football is very simple, but playing simple football is the hardest thing there is. And that's what comes to mind when you both describe Christy mewes, but Becky, can you tell us one young player you think we'll be talking about at the end of the season? I think we're going to be talking about Sam coffee who is on the Portland thorns. She is playing out of position as our 6. She is the most efficient, clean, young player that I've seen in a really long time. And I think when you're first trying to establish yourself, you try to do too much, you know, you take on the dribble a lot. We feel like you always need to do the most and she's just like, no, I'm going to get the ball. I'm going to cycle it. I'm going to move it. One touch here to touch your long range passing, like she's got all the tools. And so I'm really excited about her because she's fit in perfectly with us. When I watched your first preseason game, someone zipped this ball into your 6 and she took the cleanest touch. I mean, the touch of a goddess. Out to her right and just pinged it to the other side. And I was like, oh, that was nice. But then she did it again. And I was like, oh, she's good. Yeah, I really rate her. I personally think June Endo, angel city. I like her. I thought she was really great in their home opener, obviously. And she's left footed right? Yeah. I always think that's special in our league. We don't have a ton of left footed players. I think she's gonna be good. Yeah, I was really impressed with her that game. No one cares about what road chest to say. But watching a mirror alley, the pride of Voorhees, New Jersey, going out west to San Diego. What a goal against angel city last month. I really double a is the player that I can not wait to watch this weekend. But if we were to look at the team, you believe, apart from your own Portland, the Gotham, who will be there or there about. Who do you both mark down as a true contender and why? Gotham. I heard the question correctly. Mitch first answers the assignment. Oh, well, okay, so I will play the game, Raj. Aside from Portland, I'm gonna say, I think Seattle, we've played him a bunch during the challenge cup and then in the preseason tournament and they've got a flow to them and some really special players sound defense. They're gonna give everyone a run for their money, I think. Still Gotham. Gotham all the way, baby. I will give no credit to any other team until the championship trophy is in the stadium and we are playing for.

"It's really difficult to get back into your team's vibe form. And I think it's mentally, really hard in the beginning. Mitch, do you go into the season expecting to be fiery on all cylinders, right away, or do you want to ease your way into it to try and pace yourself to say, you know what? Midge purse. I'm going to peek at the business end of the season. Never. I'm trying to pique the whole time. Peak needs to be like, what is it a parabola? I need my pre season to be just up, up, up, and then I need the season to just be a flat line. There's no peak. It's a gradual maintain. It's a gradual maintain of excellence is what we are all trying to accomplish. But you're almost a gradual maintainer of excellence. Having trained with your team and played some pre season games. You've got a sense of your team's strengths and weaknesses from the inside. You've even got data to analyze it. Do you walk into a season with some idea of how it will play out? Do you already know in your heart how your team is going to date in 2014? I was playing for Kansas City and we tied and lost our first two games. And I remember catching eyes with lacquer because he was my coach at the time. And we just were looking at each other. We're like, oh no, this is gonna be a really long season. And then we wound up winning the championship that year, and then following that in 2015, I think we lost and tied again. And we called eyes, and we were like, oh, we're gonna be fine. So you really just never know because it is such an up and down season. There are so many games, this league is just so volatile in that way. So it's really hard to expect anything from the challenge cup or from the first few games because if you catch momentum in this league, you can wrap up 1215 points and a few weeks, and that can change the complete profile of your team. You mentioned the challenge cup, we're taping this on Tuesday night and the challenge cup semifinals are actually tomorrow, the final will be this Saturday. And the knockout rounds, they've got a slightly weird overlap with the first week of the regular season, challenge cup to be like an optical illusion that appears as different things to different people for some familiar pre season tune up for others, particularly those who win. It's an epic tournament that should never be denied. Midge, your team Gotham looks so slick across the pitch on Sunday. That after looking slightly work in progress through challenge cup play, I'm genuinely fascinated from a player's perspective. It's a challenge cut form indicative of anything for the regular season ahead, or is it completely in Italy, its own performance bubble? I don't think it's indicative of anything. I mean, who won the challenge cup last year? Portland. Oh. So yeah, again, I don't think it's indicative. Mitch, were you in that game? Oh my gosh, I wasn't the final with you. We lost in the final to Portland in PK's now that I actually think about it. And that sucked. We flew across the country, lost, didn't get the bonus, and then had one less week to prepare for the actual season than everybody else. Because we were still playing. So that wasn't great when you talk about predicting teens and thinking about seasons like that. I think it's the same way you can kind of analyze life. I've never had a year go the exact way I thought it was going to go. Ever. In life in football, it's the same way with the season. You can think it's going to go one way, but I seriously doubt that anyone has had a year that went exactly the way they thought it was going to go. My whole life has just been one big challenge cup midge. So let's start. Keeps on rolling. A league of 12 teams now, two new expansion clubs of wonder West Coast best coast, angel city FC and San Diego wave have arrived and it's been remarkable to see both of these clubs revel in their wonder and newness and veiling their brands and squads and souls with joy and style, San Diego, and angel city are both big blockbuster franchises Alex Morgan at San Diego, angel city of celebrity fueled ownership, Natalie Portman, Serena Williams Mia Hammond Moore, a sellout crowd of 22,000 for their first game. They sold 15,400 plus season tickets. You saw the CBA finally signed the head of kick-off as the angel city fans and for they glorious tea for one of the largest in NWSL history, which read when nueva and essay, which literally means a new door as the pink flares fired into the LA night sky. I need to know as players, what do you both feel? Watching that. For me, it was really heartening. I thought it was remarkable. When I played at Portland in the stands would be filled. It was loud. You couldn't hear anything. And then you sing the national anthem and they say home of the thorns instead of home with a brave. It's such a cool experience that I wished that every athlete could experience, especially every female athlete, I think you deserve that, and to see a completely new roster in a completely new location, have that of their very own, specific to their culture and specific to their area. I thought was absolutely incredible. I am right there with midge, I felt so light. And I think we've all been so burdened and it's felt so heavy for a while. And to see that, I just felt like a kid at Christmas and it just felt so light in my heart was so full and it made me think about in 2009, I was a part of the opening match with the Washington freedom. We played the LA soul in the WPS league before the end of the cell. And I remember walking out and we played at the LA galaxy stadium. I don't know what it was called at the time. It was packed, and I remember thinking like, wow, this is so amazing to be a part of my dream has come.

"So season ten of the NWSL, it's happening, living, breathing, walking amongst us. It began last weekend with some epic rumbles and I'm still reeling from that delirious angel city North Carolina courage opener on Friday night. We'll talk about that in one second, but there's a fan. I love the beginning of the season. A ton went dreams are yet to collide with a cruel buzz saw of reality. But this players, what's your mentality coming in of a preseason challenge cup tournament? Is it excitement? For these first games is it in the awareness of your own team's strengths and weaknesses already? Is it a sense of setting off on the first steps of a marathon that you know is going to involve suffering and possibly glory? What's your mindset in the first week of a season Becky? I'm truly a realist bordering onto pessimist. I'm thinking, okay, we've gone through pre season. I know most of our strings, but I'm very wear of all of our weaknesses. And so I'm going in, I'm talking to the coaching staff. I'm talking to the players like, these are weaknesses. This is what we need to show up to make sure that this season is successful because it is such a marathon. It's not a sprint. And if you sprint it out at the very beginning, you're going to burn out. You're going to get injuries. The scheduling is wild, the travel is wild. Really, you got to pace yourself. For me, it's definitely entering in with let's be realistic. You never know what's going to happen every single game. It's literally you walk in and you're like, I don't know what's going to happen today. And that's what it's like the entire season. So it can be really exhausting, but it's also like, when you win a shield, are you win the championship? You earn it. I think that's why.

"Me said the same thing. They said you're laughed, as I said, yeah, look at that. Practice makes permanent. Becky is both the elite analyst slash the agent in every hype person in every regard Becky midge. We are sitting here and they remarkable moment in American sports history. Last weekend, the NWSL kicked off its record tenth season and we're going to jump into the specifics of the campaign ahead in a moment, but first, let's just take a minute to reflect on that ten years because it's not something ever to take for granted. It's predecessors lasted three years and we know no leagues rise is straight line. There's always profound complications growing pains along the way. Becky, you've been there from the very beginning, back when the minimum salary was $6000 a season. For the inside, you've seen fire, you've seen Rey. I'm sure there are moments when you thought this league would not could not make it. Where are we right now in terms of the development? I would say we have come so far from year one to year ten that it's been probably an exponential growth and there have definitely been times for those ten seasons where I was very concerned for the longevity of the league. And I can remember specifically at the end of year 5 with Boston, I believe, had just folded, so there was going to be an expansion draft for the Boston players and then Kansas City we had no ownership. And so I remember being in my apartment with nickel barnhart and literally just being on the phone trying to figure out, are we going to be joining another expansion draft? Will we have new ownership? Is someone going to swoop in at the last second? And as a member of the USW and TPA, I hear things behind the scenes as well. And so there were real concerns about other ownerships as well. And so the fact that we've made it to year ten is wonderful and it feels like it's solidifying each year as we go, which for me as a player who was a part of the WPS that it folded after the third year to have year ten really is a testament to women's soccer and interest that it's garnering in this country. Midge, you are a senior in high school back in 2013, the first season of NWSL. And when you're in college, you spend the league's early seasons playing on the same fields as those Boston breakers, May they rest in peace, who used Harvard's facilities to train. You've been in the league now. It's 6 seasons. How does a reality of the league match up to what you dreamed it would be as a college kid? Well, as a college kid, I think I actually had a very clear idea of where the league was. And I remember just hoping to get drafted to the Boston breakers so that I could finish my semester at school. And go to pre season. And I thankfully, I did, so I didn't have to leave school earlier or anything like that. Now it's just it's surpassed all of my expectations. It's really heartening to see. Becky, the league still so young. It's not even had its bat mitzvah ten seasons as one would expect there are still so many growing pains. This is a season of newness in so many ways. We've got new franchises, new CBA, new commissioner, Washington, spirit has at last new ownership, new female ownership, the mighty Michelle Kang. We also have the darkness, the continuing ongoing revelation of coaches, creating truly horrific cultures of discrimination of harassment of abuse inside. Does it feel like the best of times the worst of times? It feels a little bit of both to be perfectly honest. I think, you know, you wake up in the morning and you check social media, you check the newspaper and you're just waiting to see something about the NWSL right now because it's just been a lot of a lot of coverage for kind of the worst reasons. And then you also watch LA and that knew that opening game and all the ownership on the field and how happy everyone was and the pax stadium and you're like, wow, this is really amazing. And so it's really an emotional roller coaster in the league right now. And I think we're trying to set up the infrastructure with the CBA by getting the bad ownership, the bad agents out of the league, but that's an ongoing process. And so it's very up and down right now. I think it's a good microcosm of what the world is like right now. You have to balance a lot of challenges and a lot of potential and opportunities that you have to do great things. And I think year ten, we've come a long way and making sure that we are protecting players, making sure that we are making an avenue for players to come to the league, making it advantageous from internationals to come, making it look desirable, but we have a lot to do to still make it the best it can be. If you are both incredibly active, Becky, you are the president of the national women's soccer league Players Association. Midge, you remember the collective bargaining agreement negotiating committee. You're also on the board of the black players collective. There's so much that needs to develop and build and change. What would you both like to see happen in terms of the priority of big issues to be tackled as a league enters its next phase? I would say just right off the bat, just player safety and well-being. I think that first and foremost, you need to go to work and you need to be able to feel safe and to not have to worry about all these other things and just to be a professional athlete, which has not been the case for the ten years that we've been a part of this league. I would add in I think something that I'm always vocal about. I think that there's a culture of paternalism.

Entrepreneur, Podcaster Jannese Torres-Rodriguez on Why She Left the Corporate 9-5
"Talked a little bit before. And i believe you told me that you were working as an engineer at this time. Was that like because that is a field that i mean. I'm all for more women in stem and and you know and that must have been from all the research i've done as a personal finance reporter whenever you did a list of top earning majors in college. It was always like computer engineering things like that. So you must have had a well paying job in a field that super competitive and you must be extraordinarily smart but you said that you hated your job right so can you talk about. What was it about your career that you weren't finding fulfilling and then how did you and when did you sort of pivot into what you're doing. Now yeah yes. So as an engineer in a latina. Like i think that the career experience has definitely served me. Well in the sense that like i'm so used to being manned s- planed that now when it happens in like the personal finance fear which yes. It absolutely does kind of doesn't bother me. I'm just like midge like what you like. We are the same. So i'm not even here to like i. I don't need your explanation. Sir thank you. And because that came so much from like mike corporate experience i was usually the youngest woman in the room i was usually the only woman of color and there was a lot of like that. Just you know that girl. That girl gets like the products and nobody else wants to work on. And just gets talked down to gets told that i'm aggressive when the men are quote unquote being assertive blah blah blah. So i think from that perspective. I'm grateful for the fact that it gave me a thick skin because right i don't take any shit from anybody at this point. I think my career has a lot to do with that. But i think i followed my father's footsteps when it comes to an engineering background. Because he is an engineer as well he works on like automating production lines for manufacturing companies. And so i always like surrounded by technology and curiosity and science like that was always the vibe that was in my house i was always wanting to find out what my dad was working on. So i think you know. I saw him being financially successful. And i wanted to mimic that but then i also realized that after a while. I just don't care about this. This is not what lights me up. Yes i was making great money like i was twenty five years old making like seventy five thousand dollars. I started making six figures before. I turn thirty. And you know the monetary aspect of it is what kept me in the field for so long. Because i had all these thoughts about like. What the hell awesome. I going to do this actually going to be able to pay me this type of money but at some point i just realized like i can't go through life. Just living with the excitement of paycheck. 'cause it's not it's not worth it to

Pawpaw Fruit Facts
"Let's dig into today's topic. Paul can we start with you You heard my story about how I discovered. Papa's thanks to you How did you discover? Papa's well I stood. Discovered Papa's in the native of trees of Canada. I discovered them on a page. Not In reality. Unfortunately I grew up in a family that was in the produce business My both my grandfathers this were farmers Where we're in the Agra in the native you know in the native Place for Papa's grew or still grow but I had never tasted them mhm nor heard of them and it piqued my interest so much because we had always Prided ourselves on being the first to taste everything that came into the market and new member. One Re Pini Dini came in and went Avocados came into the market and when kiwifruit and star fruit and all. Those things first appeared here And this it was the kind of our native exotic that I had never experienced. So it was part of a schoolyard naturalization pro project and really part of more broadly of using native plants to restore habitat. And so there is there is that broader Value of these trees while of course because they are native They're co evolved with all the insects and diseases that That are here. so they're not susceptible to them and and they host Many important species as well so tell me something so you read about it in a book there. Was this naturalization project in your neighborhood or something. What did you guys do? You never heard about the train you go and you buy it and you plant. or how did that happen well. This was the early nineties so for me. The early days of the of the Internet and I did track someone down through through the interweb of that day. You know very very BA barebones in those days And found some of the Niagara and into we had just you know we were. We're lucky we had just moved into a new home. We had a front yard. That was kind of a had been lawn and of course we didn't want to have lawn anymore. We don't have any lawn and it's such a such a poor use of the small space that we had in in urban setting So we wanted to plant it with native trees stories and We also wanted to scare the view to our neighbor across the street and When I came home we came home? Not with two trees but with two sticks As my partner so kindly So kindly described them and so it took about ten years. Oh my gosh. So th the next ingredient is patients it is. It's really a slow food. Okay it's very slow so it took Tennessee. You plant these trees. Your partner is okay with it. Look like two little sticks What did they look like as they were growing up? As you're nurturing these two little sticks what are they looking. I think the first thing that I notice about them was just so how distinctive the leaves czar. They look like no other tree and I have had a number of people Just walked down the sidewalk and look at them and then the bravest among them go like what tree is that. I think I know all the trees but I've never seen something with such a long feather shaped leaf And you know my my friend. Who spent a lot of time in America around Cacao Trees Religious Jew really notes. How similar they are to cow as well in their structure so they are a very unique looking tree And the and then a when the blossoms came out the blossoms are also fascinating as well. They're very dark Maroon Maroon color I believe they're mimicking meet because they are pollinated by midges That are attracted blow flies. which are attracted to dead meat? So what do they smell like. Do they smell like dead meat. So if you don't smell like dead meat they are the the. They are a little acrid smelling rolling. They're they're certainly not fragrant like an apple blossom right okay so you plant this tree and you're hanging in there and you're waiting mm-hmm and you're waiting you're waiting did you at some point. Did you almost lose your enthusiasm for this. Great idea of planting palm tree. No I think we're there. There are many other things going on and I was very hopeful and I and it was just as I was reading more and more of the work that Lorraine Johnson was doing and other other great Authors were doing around native plants and I would start accumulating references to pop. Aw and when and the more I read about dumb and the and the more I read descriptions of of their flavor the more we just couldn't lose interest because I was just kind of salivating every year and then there is frustration because for a couple of years we got some blossoms but no fruit set and so actually getting pollination especially on isolated trees in in an area where there's really no native no no other surrounding trees that could cross pollinate with them. It took a long time so finally the day comes that you start to see fruit for me. Tell me about what year was that and what was going on for you. That was two thousand and four. I I was involved in agriculture. At that point I was working in the wine industry Saw Back and forth in Agra Lot and really felt that I was kind of telling the the the agricultural story in our urban setting and this was another part of that story And so as they foreign we got very excited. I why did you know the the small. The small mammals do like to climb up and down the trees and sometimes knocked them off before they're fully ripe so that was a little bit of a frustration. Especially when you're you know and we would count the fruits right at the end of his own fifteen this year you know. And then and then there's attrition through the whole season right and but when those first fruits did ripen and you could smell their ripe and you could feel they were right They became very highly price in our in our in jealously guarded. Oh Yeah Y.. Y within our household as well yes okay so in your household old guy. Your first ripe fruit. Is this actually the first time you taste papa. Your own fruit yes. I had never had that point. There were no I. I hadn't yet to see them at farmers markets Forbes wild foods does have some now and now there are some other farmers who are growing them in in a more more commercial quantities. But at that point not at all so what did you think I was just blown away. The the flavor is so mystifyingly defying Li exotic so tropical in its character The texture is so silky and smooth and as they get ripe they get this. Really really beautiful. Creme Brulee characters a bit of a roasted character to them that is just really satisfying and really enhance and attractive. And and then of course you want to multiply your pleasures by sharing them. So that's really what I started to do. Work through slow food and other organizations to you want to really share share the beauty of the of that
Antarctic Is Ripe for Invasive Species
"Antarctica is a lonely continent but the Antarctic Arctic peninsula. The little tale that juts out towards South America is a hub of human activity more than fifty scientific research. Stations are based there and in recent travel season forty forty. Two thousand tourists visited mostly from cruise ships. Problem is when humans go somewhere hitchhikers. Come with like a non native flightless midge and insect sex that is already taken up residence in the peninsula region and its biomass greater biomass of all the other environment in the soil. It's already kind of taking over the nutrient cycling in non bombed. Kevin Hughes is an environmental researcher with the British Antarctic survey. He and a team of experts recently reviewed a list of one hundred and three marine and terrestrial terrestrial species that might be poised to take up residence on the continent from that list. They pinpointed the thirteen. Most likely to arrive established themselves and become invasive in the next decade at the top muscles which stick to ships and could carpet shorelines and smother native species Antarctic shores and shallow. Hello waters could also fill with crabs which have existed in those habitats for millions of years so the communities are just not used to these sorts of predators coming in on the potential for crops drops to jump away at most sitting on the seabed is quite a frightening prospect on land. The scientists flagged a might a spring tail and several species of button weed plants. As potential potential invaders. The full list is in the Journal. Global Change Biology. After kind of remember the on target is really WANNA ask great wildernesses that we have on the planet. We WanNA keep this place. Please pristine frosty research because it's tool to so much about high. The world works are climate works. High Ecosystems can be together and how they function so. It's just just incredibly important that we just keep it as pristine as we possibly come but that task keeps getting more difficult because climate change is slowly dying the frozen continent making it easier for invaders to gain a foothold.

YouTube's machine learning can't keep up with its promises (The Daily Charge, 9/9/2019)
"Today on the daily charge getting emotionally and spiritually ready for whatever apple throws at US tomorrow more leaks surrounding the Pixel for Youtube say I failing to protect golden and the special surprise for National Teddybears Good Morning and welcome to C. Nets Daily L. E. charge. It's Monday September ninth. I'm Rigid Carrie Jones awesome. Let's kick things off with our top story today so back in February Youtube but made the promise to suspend comments on videos that featured kids aged thirteen in younger. This was following an outcry over pedophilia lurking in the comments videos with young children included comments with predatory links so youtube said it would just end comments on videos that featured miners who were thirteen and younger and even videos with older miners who could attract Iraq predatory behavior but fast forward to now six months later and Joan. You did a search on Youtube. You've found a number of videos still had comments on them videos with kids. What's going on yeah. It's still incredibly easy to find tons of comments on videos feature kids that are clearly infants toddlers lers preschoolers and then even some videos that show teenagers in this sort of predatory situations. Doing you know this whole thing kicked off because there was of log about a guy who did a search for bikini haul videos and fell tumbled into this algorithm ick like pedophilia wormhole all gross yeah very gross. If you search Teen Bikini Hall even now you can find teens wearing bikinis with comments that are inappropriate and it sounds like what Google was just using this algorithm to automatically detect if there was a kid in the video like what's what's wrong. Why are there still comments as video. I mean there's a couple of things going going on. One is that Youtube scale staggering who has five hundred MIL has five hundred hours of content uploaded every minute so from the beginning of when we started talking. There's there's already like five. Hundred hours have already uploaded. It's a lot but that being said they built themselves to the scale and whenever they have these problems they say hey. We've got machine learning. That's going to help us keep things in line and to a degree they are. We didn't find a ton like a slew of really predatory comments on most of these videos but it was still easy to find them and they made the commitment they said we're going to be disabling comments on videos that have minors younger than thirteen and even if they're at that scale machine learning just isn't catching enough for it to be. I I did one search and found over one hundred from one hundred different channels that had comments wasn't even digging deep this basic search yeah. It was a basic search for a kid focused subject. I searched pretend play and found videos. They range changed videos that had almost no views and no subscribers videos that had twenty million views there was one video that had over seventeen hundred comments and that was one after we contacted did Youtube and said here's a list one hundred videos from one hundred different channels all them by what you said is your policy should not have any comments enabled on them. That was one of the ones they disabled half the disabled comments on half of those after you contacted them yeah. They were cleaning half of them. Yeah Yeah and one of them was a video that had seventeen hundred comments already accrued on it so do they have a statement of like. Why do they any more time to get the you know the whole Algorithm writer. They didn't directly address. What why the things that we found slipped through the cracks. They said look we've taken down hundreds of millions of comments on lots and lots of videos. We're investing harden. China and they use these stats. Don't really say anything like they have a classified here that removes two times as many predatory comments okay. I don't know what that means because they won't tell us what that's off a baseline of what two times of two times three six they're not talking about that but like what do we really. We know what that means. They are not being transparent about where they actually stand on a promise. They made months ago between this and what happened last week. You definitely has to do do more in this area and that's why this matters at this point because you just promise last week that they would be going even further and relying on more machine learning to not only take away comments from videos for kids but also any personalized advertising and notifications into other things to keep watching that. There's also another Google story out today. There's there's a leaked promotional video for the Pixel for smartphone it popped up online Monday and the video appears to confirm some rumors that we've heard last week in the view you can see owners are controlling the phone with hand gestures and they're also controlling it fully with a series of voice commands like which just voice you could put photos. Send those photos to other. The people and you don't have to lift a finger. Cameras are also a big part of this video. It looks like you could take photos really well. In the dark even capture all the stars in the sky by taking a picture of the Milky Way. There's this big square cut out in the back for three cameras and an earlier leaked image. Midge does show the phone could come in a bright orange color along with black and white so a lot of leaks on the Pixel for funny timing for that Joan Down Down Shafei. It'd be funnier if all the previous leaks for picks of four have been from Google itself. This is one league. It's like an actual leak. It didn't come from Google so they didn't didn't have any control over the time. It's just one of those things where you go. Okay the Apple Events Tomorrow and we're all talking about the Pixel for so this is make it'll make things interesting discussions. I think we're GONNA be talking much about the Pixel for tomorrow. Though well it it is one of those things where people who are curious about it. They'll be hearing about it in a few weeks. Usually it's an October kind of event for Google and is the if these leaks are right. You got you know that square cut out in the back and we've seen that kind of leaked out with apple too so it's just interesting interesting. We're going to be coming to you live tomorrow. Covering that apple event a we have a pre show stream starting at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific. We're going to give commentary before the event during the event after the vent we have our team also chiming in from inside the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's campus in Cupertino so definitely stick around for that of course tomorrow for the daily charge. I'm Bridget Carey. I'm Joanie Salsa. Thanks for joining us.

Did you know that entomologists from North Carolina State University Renan study that phone we I share our houses with more than five hundred kinds of arthropods hundred that's crazy. I will admit it surprising. The researchers took samples from fifty houses during the summer months near Raleigh. They collected both living and dead. arthropods from each room and total that identified over five hundred different morphos species those are species so closely related that they have to be identified by scientists looking for specific physical traits. He's house had on average about one hundred more fo- species there is no way that I have one hundred species of anything living in my house they mostly collect flies spiders Beatles and send book lice most of the species. Says they found don't normally live houses there. arthropods that accidentally wondered in from doors for example they found goal midges all fifty homes midges are small flies that feed on outdoor plants and can't survive indoors believe it or not only five rooms out of five hundred fifty had no arthropods house is cleaner than that.

Peacekeepers in Cyprus push for safe and secure environment across whole divided island
"This is Matt wells you a news, establishing goodwill between Greek and took a sip rates through activities that involve children, women and the elderly blue helmets with the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus or unforeseen, a working towards a BI zonal bi-communal, federated state to ensure a future where the whole of the island can live in a safe and secure environment, says force commander, Major General, Cheryl, piss the mission was established in nineteen sixty four to prevent fighting between the two communities on the Mediterranean island. And in the absence of a political settlement continues to maintain ceasefire lines into buffer zone. Just ahead of the international day of peace. Keepers monks on Wednesday may general Pierce spoke to Julia dean from the UN information center in Australia. Well, for us in Cyprus where we made our polls just either thousand personnel will one of the smallest pacekeeping missions and all of that, just either eight hundred military for which I'm the fourth commander, I work to the special Representative of the secretary general and together we knew. Stint that I ensure the security instability in the buffer zone and tonight, will I along lasting political solution to be addenda find. And when I talk about what is the buffer zone. It's really a nuanced in complex triple bland covers one hundred ninety kilometers from west to east seven Fisher crossing points is probably know why then a straight suites in some parts, and that's in Nicosia right up to seven kilometers. You now the areas we have very much like stone predicting billion SRI protecting pace. And we do that in a number of saintly, different wise and this one amaze oppose commander and also as mission is a hall to reduction Logan engagement, which is actually my mind if it is a force command, the we're in an armed force, and we have militarized opposing forces north and south on the north. We have the Turkish mainland army, and the Turkey Ciprian security, forces and on the southern side, we have the Greeks. Pre at national God. But the Orland is actually quite a militarized islands. I have a strong engagement plan. And with the commanders of the opposing forces in way, mate Neely every six weeks, and then this is mirrored again, by commodities on the ground across the sectors. It really are to, to ensure that way deescalate the tensions that are air. And we are the only why the two signs don't communicate we check which other way facilitate all the information from north to south and south to north. So then engage plan is significant, and that depends highly on trust, doesn't it? Yes, trust. We took about that every time we might and we took about from a military really thinks when we talk about mutual respect trust. Impartiality transparency and a really fi console net for both sides, because it is what we do is military that separates it from the political, we'll very. Careful to keep the divide separate of the wines. It can be we can get caught in the political environment, which undermines the trust and impartiality on the military sign so that's sort of be the case. And that happens right down to the lowest level. And now we have a man that we have to report my license, and so that engagement, we need to really hold on. When we when we have these violations violations to talk about that could be either manning of the checkpoints that could be moved forwards into the buffer zone night could be escalation with weapons biz in number of different activities, e this on could do that would create a violation and then way report out through to New York on a daily basis and stopped to building to the secretary general's report, and we have a mandate renewal every six months. So the actions of the housing forces gets captured and reported, which. Then leads into the political dialogue and the opportunities for the sides to try and identify way going forward. What about the civilian populations does the ministry heavily as on with the, the civilians as well. Look, we do talk about protection side. I as we talked about my time security and stability in order to return to normal conditions L actual, Botha's Zayn here on the island is not ice sterile office. Sign like between north and South Korea. It's actually used for farming and some of its permitted, we do it through a payment system, but a majority is not permitted farming, which creates esscalation and ferocity to try to defuse that we got to the actual physical protection. We escort we have pilgrimages gun coming into the buffer zone. They have they seek to do these Puga midges back to the mosques and churches to hold religious services on a regular basis in for that we school. Them. We escort the mean and we provide that support to them. But when I talk about supporting civilians, we have a lot of communal and a lot of activities. Karen, the buffet Zayn unbound, establishing the goodwill between the great secrets and Turkish Cypriots in the intent of trying to work towards a, a Visayas by communal federated state and for that to occur. We have to mind time and really work towards creating bottom up swallow a bike mean like TV's and for that what actively involved in creating a sense of the side, insecure environment for which for the is to occur Anaya care in the buffer zone, quite regulate that will plan, we, it's dumb with us as force. We have the ample the place. But also, we have civilian staff, we do the facilitation with municipalities north end south to coordinate, the diplomatic community also actively gets involved sponsors, a lot of these activities, these activities with children's side. They EM's Watson children's activities fundraise for the very young and for their parents and then through to mainly through sport on all of the school. But now there's a lot to do with science and stem, and spice and an educational activities. And then we will say by Pistone. It's a focus on the next generation really trying to that younger community, working together because it curriculum by signs is actually justed to make their I narrative, and so coming together through ball community allowing them to engage provides an environment where it's not by what is said, but is by the actions and working with your position on the old Lee we do a lot with the elderly. But also, we do a lot with the women giving them a voice and trying to generate opportunities where that can be a voice for chine Jin. They do a lot through women's walks. We get together in charge them. You. UN copy lading. It's about Priscilla touching both sides to find ideas and wasteful. Would you have an example of what inspires you with the people that you weekly space Capers, but grind berry? What spies may that Ahmad force? It's here unite that trained in their own national army air force on ninety and trying to say their country, they're not been selected by the country represent the UN. And it says we come together as an international community to, to serve the UN and to support the outcomes in Cyprus to ensure that they have a future where the whole of the Arlen can leave in I in a secure environment as Cypriots is a whole, and of course the day, the peacekeeping dies Edyta reflect on those who full them. What are your professional and personal reflections on this very similar very similar to that of what Tom and spies me about my forces that you try and all of your career, to be country? And then you. Elected by your country to at the UN, which is writer than a national outcome meets it's global response to, to conflicts around the globe, where we are coming together to support the country that wearing end to represent the UN is rule privilege. And I certainly don't take lightly and the bar is that we work in and this is, you know, towards the budget of fallen environments. We work in our complex, and the is it applied the ultimate sacrifice. My heart goes out today to their families. You know, we try and for these environment, we understand the risks it's families that a left and, you know, Laura people think the UN is only as now is less than one the environment that we work in is benign. It's not it is complex. It is risky. And we continue to fight Kosonen trying to create stable environments for the for the host nation will continue to work. The UN is working in action for pacekeeping and women. Stikes missions in my focus is on the continual, nip professionalization of the force training environment, which we work in and end to lead by example with good command and that's to ensure the way, reduce the deaths where possible in missions. They'll always be environments, wherein, but might show that there are no unnecessary deaths through poor training or actions. But inherently, you know, we said country we serve the UN and the and the environments. We in our risky and complex.
"midge" Discussed on Gilmore Guys
"And then there's just too. And like the thing that drove me crazy in this one. It wasn't this episode before I think when the drama is midge going to be able to win miss Catskills eighth year in a row as the villain in any other show. Like the woman who wins it every single year and doesn't let anyone else going to shot. I have a hard time rooting for midge because she's not an underdog in any way. And I feel like like laurel lie was underdog in some ways, and you like you rooted for her. Right. And I'm like completely coming around in the Matt is what drives me crazy and Michelle is in underdog because she was working in Vegas, and she was doing the strip. I keep thinking you me and Michelle from the in yet Michelle was underdog. Show of underdog worked for. Michelle the protect. So Gilmore girls this amazing show about a dance studio. There's like a mom and daughter, but does dance and the hero is MS Patty. Yeah. Lot of drawn out week that would be the villain. That's such a good this episode. I think was the one where I realized I don't care that much about her comedy career. Which is maybe like a controversial take. He. Well, what happens for me is that what I like I care a lot about her comedy career when she's struggling doing interesting things and then in in in the realm, or at least in the in the world that they have built like I can see why she's either doing well or doing poorly, but in this past episode, she did a long set that it was like she was like say thing, and then people would laugh, and there's something totally not funny and everybody laughed and then say like my dad's here, no laugh, and it's like wait just a laugh track in this room. There's no reason people would laugh at any of this stuff. It's that was mind boggling. Yeah. But for me like when I don't care about her comedy career. I guess I'm more like don't root for it. I don't feel as she cares about it as much as she should the moment where she got that hall that. She could go first of all after Susie saying, hey, we gotta work on your comedy career. Oh, but I've badminton I have pesto class. And then when the woman says, you can work at the Revlon counter, and she's a holy shit. And she makes. Yeah. Beeline into the city, if she cares this much about Revlon and not about if she put this hurt her life seems totally full without comedy. Yep. Exactly. So many people like when you look at Lenny, Bruce. He's like, oh, this keeps me going. Do you really think you can go back to making jello, mold? You've totally feeling Mitch could and she'd be totally jazz. She says the scene, I don't know. I make a pretty good Jehlum. And there's not even if she loves Joel so much, and she's like he's like you can't quit like obviously Jovan would make it about him. How he made her quit, and it would be this whole thing because Joel's a drama Queen. But like that we stand quit just quit. Like, I know if I'm real life who is like I want to have a home life and a job and a comedy career. I'd be like totally go for it. But TV is. I know when I watch TV I kind of like being told here's what you root for and here here, here's what we're working toward. And I don't feel as if you were that that's the comedy is bang that I would is drawn fend. If it felt like all of these things were coming to a head like she was actually sort of being pulled between the world's kinda like that before where I was talking about. When you go to the when she went up to the Catskills, and she was like, yeah. Missing take two months off comedy. And then she gets up there. And she's like starting to realize you can't have it all because everybody's like, wait. Where's your husband? And she's like, we're friends, and it was like, no. And they're like, oh, you can't be in the contest anymore. And so she's starting to see maybe her world, isn't she can't keep everything together. But it didn't feel like that. Actually, the the next episode. Yeah. The rushing to the city things like oh, also when Susie called this is another thing when Susie called her and was like earn Suzy was on the phone with the book, and she's like the gigs tonight at midnight..

"Great. I also it's not my the thing is like I feel on midges behalf. The she's like you broke up with me. And now you're trying to buy me an apartment. It's like you're not giving me any time to adjust to let me get over this mother fucking break-up for you decide what was happening next. There's a power dynamic inherent in accepting a gift of that size. And then you're living in it. Yeah. I don't give a shit. If you're the father of my children to take a gift from you. Yeah. I don't take gifts from my mom. Chris. Things my mom bought the apartment. I'd be lap in months ago. Two weeks ago? Maybe do you don't wanna put that energy out in the world holiday time for I twenty nineteen on a roll. I didn't I wasn't hearing. I'm saying if she bought me an apartment. Yes, I'd be like, no, thank you, even if had pink carpet and. No, thank you. I design my own. I was surely for sure I would take that apartment like, and I would Airbnb that shit immediate. You would not live at you would just the end. Wouldn't be able to do it such a funny thing that happened. Some like there is a little strain of relationships in certain couples and the DNA of you're just kind of bound repeat stuff or inheriting that like your parents do. Right. Putting those scenes back to back with the apartment, the new apartment, confrontations. There's a weird almost like a melancholy inevitability like, yeah, you're just kind of keep doing these patterns and some this is genetic impasse down with Paris going back to your old life, and what she feels in when she's feeling really melancholy in that moment like which feels going to be right back to where it was as if Paris had never happened in. That's why delightful to see that. It isn't going to be that case. Let's talk about the club scene because midge does book a gig Suzy books gig for midge, I should say, even though midge is very scared that her pictures gonna give out or anyone's gonna find out who. She is. But she gets a gig at a club. And the men are very mean to her and they do kinda sort of harass her singer. Oh, you should say cleanup is a singer. I don't think those are just wear that dress. So one colleague to another you and let me and Lenny what what he did view. That was pretty big, you must've something pretty big firm. I write nothing respect. If you did. Hey, I'd sleep Lenny Bruce VS. The man is a guy fucking sleep with Lenny, Bruce. And even if she did that's not like he did the gig. 'cause I didn't sleep with him. I know, but my point is even if you did it doesn't yet. But I didn't I know, but if contained for bucks AAC. Wow, little ladies got a potty mouth teach that also..
"midge" Discussed on Unorthodox
"That was just a little smidge a little a little appetizer show a little midge a little midge of Leo with the unorthodox Mazel having Tel-Aviv meet up in December twenty eighteen. Dell day. One extraordinary letter this week. I think deserves our attention. Dear unorthodox, I loved the interview with the wonderful laya of forced her in talking about some of the rabbis in her community used the threat of removing the hush. Gotcha. Kosher certification from the restaurants, where she was going to perform you made the assumption that it addition to being morally reprehensible such a move would be a misapplication of caution. While I doubt that the rabbis in question. Employ such a tactic often, I actually fully support religious authorities trying to broaden our understanding of Khatri from being just about the ingredients in the kitchen to considering the broader context from the conditions of the animals being raised for slaughter as the ethical cautious movement does to the conditions of the workers in restaurants. And yes, in theory, even extending to the types of events the restaurant hosts, I suggest you take up this subject in the coming year. All the best rabbi Benjamin barrer. So he saying wait a second. Yes. It seems to bother us when when homophobic rabbis invoked cauti- route to say that that an. Establishment can't host given event. But what about the fact that that progressive forces want to invoke cautious to say, we should worry about more than just how the the neck is slashed in the animal and talk about workers rights and things. I that's an interesting point. I'm a hundred percent without by bear. In fact, I think you should be really extended to all kinds of things like I don't know why imagining the godfather to serve his in this restaurant is very there's no longer koshen. No what about like, fair coldness carpaccio. No cashew. It's for you. No, I think the idea of like conditions of the workers in restaurants. Like, that's really really interesting. If you're under paying your back of the house staff, your kitchen staff that you shouldn't. I mean, I like that idea. It does. However, I mean, I'm very torn by this because on the one hand sure I'd be I might be willing to make that trade where some like super orthodox establishments the cautious is used to keep it gay free. But then if lots of other more modern kosher establishment said we're gonna pay fifteen dollar an hour wages and ensure the animals were humanely treat like all in all you might get a net gain in goodness in the world. I could I could work with that sort of, you know, the flourishing of many different little fiefdoms. The problem is I kind of went kosher places to be a place where we all were Jews of different kinds siege. I don't want like the progressive kosher barbecue joint, and the you know, Haredi that also sort of exists based on who which certification you have who who's doing your supervision. It's already so incredibly minted in bifurcated. So maybe that will be a good way. To being together..

"But I did like as a window to give back to the point where we left off phenomenon in the season finale, and how does end up like you were saying before everyone just so bummed out. It's you know, what it's a bilingual nannette 'cause you start laughing. But by the end. I go home and think about toxic masculinity. She's like inmates. Why Mitch Mazo goes my people? People. He's my husband. Changes only. It made me feel bait. So my life L today. Didn't it? Megyn. All right. So and that's why I guess I'd like to beginning of the episode so much. It's like it needs to prep you for that. Like, you need you need to move right into this this reality because it is not reality reality. It's this world. This is the marvelous reality in which this person is marvelous person, and and they have the ability to turn a room of French. You know, also the other thing about this is like, hey, did you guys have any other acts going on tonight because right now, they're just waiting for this other person? Of course, it's ridiculous. But it was all in service of the story. And it worked for me. My one thing I'll say is that like there's a bump for me. The two ideas bump with midge being the central character that is the ASAP superhero character. Let's I feel we need to come up with a name for like the super super girl or like, you know, the old saying about that. I need to know it. Amy Sherman palladino keeps getting older fest. Talking brunettes the same. Right. Okay. So the talking brunette is able to literally be anything all the TB's all the, you know, like Mitch says it herself, I'm amazing. I can do anything. That is that is that character. And then the world has already acquiesced to that reality. And everybody knows it. And she's able to go around just charming people in its that's fine. That we tell the story that way that's fine. But at the same time, you're also watching a person a human grapple with learning something new that they have not mastered. So what how does you know, like sometimes those two things rub up against each other? Because learning how to do stand up. It's not something where you're always constantly winning everybody over, and so they have to it's a delicate balance that they have to strike, and I think they did a really good job with it pretty on the whole in season one. But you know, there's parts at which like the we're not telling the story of somebody learning about themselves through stand up when we're telling the mid story at the same time that person can't have, you know, the get doesn't exist. It star. I it's hard when one show feels like two shows. This is such a syndrome better. Call Saul were there's like all the Jimmy stuff and all the Mike and Gus stuff and even Gilmore went like season six ROY college Laura line stars hollow. And it feels like these need to have something to do with each other in the show functions at best, I think an income sations conversations between Joel and midge affect Zana p- stuff. We're that's like a direct. So that's why when we get into as fun as like rose in Abe and dogs and all this stuff. Like, I do have more of a heart in watching the show and more an interest in like, let's just see like as magical realism and as historically inaccurate may be doing the clubs in Philadelphia. Let's see your blah guy. I'm more interested in Rhode story with personal stuff as it affects that stuff that said big of Brosnahan because pig way, she handled the way she handles midges. Like, I I will now just go up on stage and start talking. She does this thing where it. Looks like she's in her head, and she's working something out aloud, and it's super it's super uncomfortable. The watch where it's like what is this person doing getting up on stage being like, wow, I'm having a thought out loud. And it's like, no don't do that don't have thought out loud. But midge is doing it. And it's because she's never stopped talking from the day. She was born. So she's doing it..
For Halloween Consider the Chocolate Midge
"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata as you unwrap a Halloween, candy or two it's worth paying your respects to the real reason for many of the treats a tiny fly who's trick is to make chocolate possible. Only in the family throughout the day. We are the only team they did family, but nor will be I those bite. How we usually do is. We will Surat's Erica mcalister is a fly. Scientist at the natural history. Museum of London in author of the secret life of flies. The Surat says she calls him related to no see'ums do a job. That's very hard to get done by hand, they crawl through long twisty cow flowers pollinating. The stubborn couch ry which produces the beans used to make chocolate. They are really really described pollinate though, you do need be losing to do it into McAllister at least the tiny midges are a beautiful sight to behold, they like a very tiny mosquitoes. But they all basically absolutely covered in have that very beautiful, very cute, Italy organisms and the males have the most they like seventy antennaes because he has to not only smell for the Email. He'd listening on his is on the Anthony, then not very robust these things that the tiny as the name of life, and they can ninth external genitalia and for the belief in a while you want me to say. Well, here's the bad news. The chocolate midges are in danger as farmers clear out shade grown rainforest plots in favor of sunnier monocultures of cow that threatens a tiny flies which need the damp rotting leaf litter of the forest floor to thrive, but some producers are taking notice obviously human demaim Jokela is going right up. So now a lot more research. She's going into fly pollinators include in these as well as for McAllister. She won't be joining you on that chocolate binge. I can't stand it voting.

What Is A Butterwort?
"This moment of silence is about one of the most widespread and stealthy carnivores in the northern hemisphere. This mercilus carnivore traps and then slowly sets the life out of its prey. Goodness, that sounds terrifying. Luckily we humans don't have much to fear mosquitoes and midges however, had best take warning. That's because I'm talking about the but award. It's certainly true that the butter ward or pink quickey LA is a fierce plant genus after all. It's eighty odd. Individual species share common carnivorous tendency, which surely strikes fear into the heart of small insects. That's right. Since plans tend to grow in areas where the soil is poor in neutral that require extra nitrogen to successfully produce seeds, and they've developed a ruthless tactic for requiring that nitrogen they, sir have a see butter words have leaves that lie flat on the ground. And function like fly paper, they secrete a sticky mucus substance, which makes the leaflet wet and inviting it lures in unsuspecting insects swing. The ruthless board begins by landing on the sticky vif, Hafiz mosquitoes. Midges unwittingly signed their own death, warrants while struggling to escape the insects trigger the release of Justice enzyme from the boat award leaf. There's enzyme slowly break down and liquefy the soft parts of the insects body wants to leave, absorbs nitrogen, rich, liquid. All this left are few indigestible remnants a bit of our skin and the wings and feet sounds like something out of a horror film. Yup. The boat award might be a small scale carnivore, but it's hunting tactics are nothing short of terrifying, at least within the insect world. This moment of science comes from Indiana University. I'm Cassandra dime, Don glass.
