Apple Mac bringing back the SD card
"Starting to look like this. Next mac book pro is gonna be the mac book. Where sorry is gonna be the mac book. We were wrong because we already talked about the fact that there maybe probably moving away from the touch bar. We already know the fact. They went to an older style keyboard design. Yesterday we talked about or maybe two days ago that they were going to go back to having a mag safe connector. Today's report we're gonna put an st card in there s the card reader so this was a long experiment for them. You know what it was. Well let me tell you what happened. They let everybody go and buy the minimalist design figured out how much they missed having features so that now in this one comes out and gives them all the features back they rush out like crazy real quick to pick those up. So it's our fault right. Yeah i blame you really do. Yeah i card reader. How nice would it be. Just having st carburetor. Maybe they do some even crazier and put an hdmi port and now just fantastic. Let's not get good type stuff. We're asking for here analyst. Ming cheek will outline his expectations for the new fourteen inch and sixteen inch macbook pro models. Coming later this year with the mag makes a charging connector the removal of the touch bar a new flat edge design and a return of more ports built into notebook for expanded connectivity.

He had wires because he needed to as the and he wanted to connect an ethernet. And i don't think we're going to eastern at jack on here but still so the next s the card Part of it comes from bloomberg's mark gurman the upcoming macbook pros and example of apple's renewed focus on mac loyalists. The company is planning to bring back in sd card slot for the next macbook pro so users can insert memory cards from digital cameras. Yeah that's what you do with an s. d. card slot. The feature was removed all the way back in two thousand sixteen hundred twenty one. Now this is kind of unlike apple but who knows you never know what they're gonna do remember when they went for the trash can mac pro for example and then they completely backed off the next time around They there were some issues. People wished that they had more ability to upgrade that device switch out. Gp's and things that they wanted a traditional design and so apple went right back to the tower the regular style tower. So i think it's the right move. I don't think. I think if you had you had a plan and things didn't really pan out then that's fine. You know you admit it and you move on this trash can was kinda cute but it just wasn't ready for prime time. We have the rumor that the next model could be a little cube but that they're probably going to keep the full-sized towers as an option. But this is about the macbook pros and the two thousand fifteen macbook pro. Not only did it have an st card reader. It also had in hdmi port. And you're be ports. Which i know. This is the kind of stuff that you're most. Pleasant drinks are filled with. Well the sweet sweet for all kinds of sports. The we'll see what happens but this is a nice little touch here. I know

Contradicting Headlines About Apple Airpods
"A tale of two headlines. One has teeth international analyst ming quo indicating apple's major product lines joy healthy demand in the fourth. Quarter but airpods shipments are muted. That is contradicted by another headline that has wedbush analyst. Daniel ives indicating. Strong holiday. Demand for airpods could continue into twenty twenty one. The funny part one of those headlines is from apple insider while the other is from apple insider in fairness apple insider not saying either rather saying that analysts are saying both starting with young. Mc that post has closing stronger-than-expected demand for iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro max. Similarly demand is beating expectations for ipad. Air apple watch series. Six apple watch as e and the m one macbooks but airpods while i was going to jokingly say airpods are sucking wind. That doesn't quite sound right. Indications are muddled quoting that part despite the strong performance for apple's core product lines airpods is exhibiting softness quote predictions to remain flat or declined by between five percent to ten percent year on year and the first half of twenty twenty one the analyst blames upstream supply constraints and an overeager market that anticipated stronger. Sales numbers after apple announced plans to stop giving away earpods muddled right. There's not enough supply and people don't want them as much as we thought. Anyway that's young. mc's take her ives. That post has the head of apple's pep squad financial division seeing bigger and better for the super stoppers. The way he sees it apple could sell as many as eighteen million pairs of airpods in december. A total of ninety million pairs and twenty twenty and as many as one hundred fifteen million pairs in twenty twenty. One quoting his note. This product category continues to speak to the unparalleled flywheel. That cook and cupertino hab with nine hundred fifty million iphones worldwide under its belt and one point four billion active devices to tap into worldwide and thus further monetize through products and services as we continue to see with apple watch as well that was also one sentence is disagree on demand.

History of the COVID vaccine
"The promise of a covid. Nineteen vaccine is immense. But don't underestimate the challenges ahead. Nine long years elapsed between the isolation of the measles virus in nineteen fifty. Four and the licensing of vaccine. The world waited for twenty years between early trials of polio vaccine and the first american license in nineteen fifty five marvel then at how the world's scientists are on course to produce a working vaccine against sars kobe to the virus that causes covid nineteen within a single year. And not just any vaccine. The data from a final stage trial unveil this week by pfizer and biontech to pharma companies suggests that vaccination cuts your chances of suffering symptoms by more than ninety percent. That is almost as good as for measles and better than the flu job with an efficacy of just forty to sixty percent. Suddenly a dark winter there is hope not surprisingly phases news on november ninth rouse the markets bulls investors dumped shares in florax peleton tech firms which have all benefited from the corona virus and instead switched into firms like disney carnival and international consolidated airline's group. Which will do well. When the sun shines again the oecd. A club of mainly rich countries reckons that global growth in twenty twenty. One with an early vaccine will be seven percent. Two percentage points higher than without there is indeed much to celebrate. Pfizer's results suggest that other vaccines were worked to over. Three hundred and twenty are in development. Several in advance trials most liked pfizer's focus on the spike protein with which sars covy to gains entry to cells. If one vaccine has used this strategy to stimulate immunity of us probably cantu pfizer's vaccine is also the first using a promising new technology many vaccines prime the immune system by introducing in fragments of viral protein. This one gets the body to make the viral protein itself by inserting genetic instructions contained. In a form of our anna. Because you can edit aren. Hey the vaccine can be tweaked should the spike protein mutate as it may have. Recently in ming this platform can be used with other viruses and diseases possibly including cancer on original focus so celebrate how far biology has come and how fruit fleet can manipulate biochemical machinery. For the good of humanity. There will be time later to worry about how that power might also be abused and celebrate the potency of sciences at global endeavor drawing on contributions from across the world. A small german firm founded by first generation. Turkish emigrants has successfully. Worked with an american multinational company headed by greek chief executive yet despite the good news too big question out about the characteristics of the vaccine and how fast it can be distributed. These are early results. Based on ninety four symptomatic cases of covid nineteen from among the forty four thousand volunteers. Further answers must wait until the trial has gathered more data. It is therefore not clear whether the vaccine stop severe cases or mild ones or whether it protects the elderly whose immune systems are weaker nor is it known whether inoculated people can still cause potentially fatal infections in those yet to receive jobs and it is too soon to be sure how long the beneficial effects will last clarity will take time in the next few weeks. The trial should be declared safe. Though further monitoring of the vaccine will be needed. The company's predict that immunity will last for at least a year. The ninety percent plus efficacy so high that this vaccine may offer at least some protection to all age groups while the world waits data it will have to grapple with distribution will be in short supply for most of next year. Although our any jobs may prove easier to make it scale than those based on proteins pfizer's requires two doses. The company has said that it will be able to produce up to fifty million doses in two thousand and twenty one point three billion next year. That sounds a lot but america alone has over. Twenty million first responders medical staff care homeworkers an active duty troops perhaps a fifth of the world's seven point eight billion people including two thirds of those over seventy risk. Severe covid nineteen. Nobody has ever tried to vaccinate an entire planet at once as the effort mounts. Ge's medical glass and stuff could run. Short worse visors shots need to be stored at temperatures of minus seventy degrees celsius or even colder far beyond the scope of your local chemist companies building an ultra cold chain but the logistics will still be hard. The vaccine comes in batches of at least nine. Hundred and seventy five doses. So you need to assemble that. Many people their first shot and the same crowd again. Twenty one days later for a booster. Nobody knows how many doses will be wasted so long as there is too little vaccine to go round. Priorities must be set by governments. A lot depends on them getting it right within countries and between them modeling suggests that if fifty rich countries were to administer two billion doses of vaccine that is eighty percent effective they would prevent a third of deaths globally if the vaccine was supplied according to rich and poor countries population. That share would almost double. The details will depend on the vaccine. Poor countries may find ultra cold chains. Too costly the domestic answer to these problems is national committees to allocate vaccine optimally. The global answer is kovacs. An initiative to encourage countries equal access to supplies ultimately though the solution will be continued work on more maxine some might survive in commercial. Refrigerators of those will work. Better on the elderly still others might confer longer protection require a single shot or stop infections as well as symptoms all those that work will help increase apply. Only when there is enough to go around. We'll anti vaccines become an obstacle early. Reports suggest the jap causes fevers and eggs which may also put some people off. The good news is that an efficacy of ninety percent makes vaccination more attractive. The next few months will be hard global recorded. Death rates of surged past their april peak. Governments will struggle with the logistics of axon nation. America is rich and it has world class medicine but it risks falling short because the virus is raging there and because the transition between administrations could lead to needless chaos and delays squandering lives. When a vaccine is at hand would be especially cruel. Science has done. Its bit to see off. the virus. Now comes the test society
The Food Fix
"I must admit to being exhausted. The last four years has taken a massive psychological and emotional toll that i'm only now just beginning to appreciate truthfully the struggle to keep hope that this day would arrive of alluded me the good news that we now have the opportunity to reignite democracy civility truth and move towards healing both our country and the earth. We've gone so far backwards that we need to move forward with deliberate tangible and bold steps one of the voices calling for such a revolution in thinking and action is dr mark. Hyman mark is a systems thinker and for dr. Hyman health is about connecting the soil with the farmer with the groza without diet and only when we connect all those dots. Can we begin to achieve planetary regeneration. As we'll hear in today's podcast what is truly staggering is the cost of today's broken food system. In which sixty percent of our calories in the us come in the form of ultra processed food. Dr mark hyman is head of strategy and innovation of the cleveland clinic center for functional medicine. He's the founder and director of the ultra wellness center and the board president of clinical affairs for the institute of functional medicine. Mark hosts one of the leading health. Podcast the doctors pharmacies spelled f. a. a. c. y. Pham esi marcus. The thirteen time. New york best seller author. His most recent book is called food. Fix how to save our health our economy our communities and our planet one bite. At a time i sought by ascii mark. How he got into medicine in the first place. Ming doctor was a total afterthought for me buddhist student in college. I studied buddhism. Asian studies chinese. I studied ecology. The environment systems thinking ancient systems of healing. Very eclectic and i decided after i graduated. But what am. I going do with a degree in buddhism so i took a long hike by myself in the shenandoah valley through my backpack brought a copy of moby dick. Because it was a very thick books. I could carry and read house before kindle and I just walked and thought and just kind of thought about what i wanted to do in the buddhist framework is really about healing. It's a it's a healing system. It's not really a religion it's really a system of healing of the mind and it's about the relief of suffering it's about compassion and love and service and and those were things that really called to me as a young man and i thought well. What could i do. That kind of fits all that. I could be a monk. That didn't sound like a lot of fun. But i decided i could be a doctor and it was a total afterthought i just i didn't have any science courses. I had to go back. And take some pre med courses and ended up loving. And i decided i would just keep doing as long as i liked it. And if i didn't like it anymore. I would stop and so far so good thirty years later. I mean that's great advice for anyone thinking about people. Ask me career advice. I say that like if you enjoy it if it fills you keep doing it and if it doesn't maybe think about stopping it exactly exactly chain. I've changed so many things i've been you know a small town country doctrine idaho and a native american reservation. Emergency room doctor started clinics in china ex patriots. I was the medical director. Kanye ranch i developed my own. Practice started writing books and teaching About functional medicine became the faculty of functional medicine institute and direct and the chairman of it started big center for functional medicine at cleveland clinic. And now i'm sort of moving into a different phase of thinking about how do we deal with the intersecting issues of food and health and agriculture environment which all may seem separate but are actually all one problem and if we want to solve one we have to solve them all to before we end that. What is functional medicine. What does that mean. That joke is the opposite of dysfunctional medicine. Which is what we have now. As essentially a system of thinking it's not a methodology or treatment or attests supplement is is essentially a way of thinking about disease based on systems. It's it's base c ecosystem medicine. You understand that that the environment is an ecosystem and that everything has to be imbalanced in nature. For to thrive and in madison we really created a reductionist model that allows us to focus on diseases and symptoms in drugs to target those symptoms and not really understand what is health. We never took the course in medical school. Creating a healthy human wanna one. You know we we basically learn how to diagnose and diseases functional. Medicine is the science creating health. And when you do that does goes away. The side effect if you create a healthy ecosystem for example on a farm or a natural ecosystem it becomes. Resilient disease doesn't occur.

Leaked documents fuel rumors around iPad Air
"We believe apple is reading the. Apple Watch series six, the IPAD for an update, and that is what was filed. There are also leaked images servicing of what supposedly is an IPAD air manual possibly confirming. Ming cheeks. Bing quos rumors of a ten point eight inch ipad update that we'd been talking about on previous episodes of the Mac cast the manual did show a device with reduced bells and no home button although it doesn't look like it has face ID, technology on it in it because the manual mentions. Touch ID technology and you might be asking well, how do we get touch ID with no home button if you remember previous rumors that we had heard from minke quo and other sources we had been hearing that apple had been looking to build touch id into the power button on their devices. So that might be what they did in this case Also, there was another report though that was supposedly of some leaks schematics for the new IPAD air and that. Did mention face ID said, the rumor seems to be a little bit inflexible at half face idea that have touch ID. Definitely it's looking like if it does have touch ID, it's going to be a new form of that, which is pretty exciting. We haven't seen it up to kind of type. E in you know I think since it came out really it's always been based on the little rain around the home button. So it'd be nice to see apple driving that technology forward. And I would imagine keeps costs down on. A device like the IPAD air
Holland Taylor: Is 77 and Busier Than Ever
"Taylor. Welcome to the show and congrats on the emmy nomination for Hollywood. Fell into a pot of honey without role yeah. I. Agree. You know I love that character she was a genuinely nice person for lack of better words. She genuinely cared about the other actors in the show and helped guide them to making good decisions in their careers in your own career. Did you have anyone like that? You know I've lived for so long I can scarcely remember being mentored but of course, I learned from everybody I encounter and I ex and I even consciously experienced myself observing someone and say Oh what an interesting way to do that I learned a lot of people and I'm particularly interested in seeing very young actress and how they. How they attack task you mentioned your age you're seventy seven. You also seem to have never been busier. I know it's actually I've had I've had an extraordinary career in that the usual plight of the actor, which is long periods of not working has not been my situation. I've really worked pretty steadily. My beginning years were hard because I was. Too Young to play the parts that I was right for because I was never nausea new but once I hit my stride I've really never had hard period is so untypical ever atypical that I feel kind of guilty about it. I've been blessed with good fortunate lately Ming One thing right after another. It's just been very, very quiet lately it's changed very changed experience and having never been busier though, are you the anomaly amongst people your age or you're seeing that across the board? Oh I I'm seeing a lot maybe because I'm in the Ryan Murphy Universe Ming Ryan Murphy has an enormous interest in women as characters on their own separate from any relationship they may have with whatever man is in their purview. Female actors are used to having roles that are connected to a man you. You can't just be a person who story is being told. You are the life of the mother, all the daughter of the friend of the sister of I think now in the Ryan Murphy World, he sees him and he sees women and their particular evolution of their life and how they realize themselves. He finds it very interesting. So. There's plenty of women an elder women in his world. One of my favorite scenes from Hollywood was between you and Joe Mondello icon Joel Montello discussing your relationship and it was a vulnerable conversation and kind of hate how much it stood out to me how rarely I've seen somebody your age onscreen talking about those things yes we were very aware how rare are. Seen it was and as such, we really wanted to do it. Well, we had a lot of sort of fluttering nervous about it because it seemed such a critical scene. You can't really fully right out a scene like that because so much is unspoken so much as difficult to say so the characters really behave with each other in ways that you hope are revealing. Such an ineffable occurrence that happens when one person reaches out to another and the reaches not grasped back I'm feeling tightness in my throat just thinking about it because it was a scene of such delicacy and we really so wanted to do it well, because people never forget moments of such delicacy and human pain human stress and human urine. I'm Kinda surprised to hear you talk about wanting to do the scene well and Justice I. Guess My assumption would be that at seventy seven you feel very comfortable and confident in your craft a lot of things in acting happen or they don't happen. and. INEFFABLE. It's hard to put your finger on it. You know what the ingredients are. You know with the character was, but the character moves through behavior not just to the spoken word when two characters are working together. There is always an element of Magic to it, and sometimes it clicks and sometimes it just doesn't. It's hard to really control. So there is a sense of. Walking on a tightrope, always enacting you and your partner have to pick up each other's infinitesimally delicate hues and it's very moving. When you are in connection with another actor. It's like being outer space. There's a little spec these tune respects each other and they come within. Communication blinking distance and they blink and then they pass on.
WeChat ban in the US could impact iPhone sales globally
"A note from analyst Ming Chico looks at the potential impact on iphone sales of the US executive order banning transactions with we chat. Now, if we were only removed in the US quo predicts, iphone shipments would fall three to six percent. If removed globally quoc's sees iphone shipments declining twenty five thirty percent with shipments of other apple products like backs and ipads, and the Apple. Watch. Declining fifteen to twenty five percents and apples. Latest earnings reports greater China accounted for roughly fifteen percent of Apple's quarterly revenue. So you know it's it's something that's very important to the company expects apple suppliers LG attack and genius electronic. Optimal. Rather also adversely affected. Yeah. We talked about on Friday that. is dominant in everyday life in. So many ways in China and quo has put a number on that of how that would impact apple if a Chinese customer and other places that use we chat, you know ex pats and tourists. Looked at it and say, well, I can't buy this. It doesn't have we chat on. Right I I don't think it's going to be blocked anywhere outside of. The US right. So the first number I. believe the predicting the iphone chips fall three to six percent if it's blocked in the US that make sense to me but as you said, like China lives in breezy. It'd be really difficult to imagine it not being on iphones that were sold and distributed inside of China and three to six percent. It's not nothing but that's a lot easier to overcome and maybe try to grow your way past than twenty five to thirty percents for sure apple will be fine. I am not too worried about minted billionaire Tim Cook. Yes. He's going to make his way out of this but yeah, I. I am curious if there's even going to be a band or if there is what what how it manifests and we'll these executive orders be challenged all of that. So we got a ways to go on all of that stuff before we haven't already but I think this analysis is important to say like, all right we don't know what really is going to happen. But if this happened, this would be our best guests on its impact at least on. That's right. Yeah.

"Members of the press curious neighbors and the garland police all had the same question on their minds. What would Chen do now? His Prophecy had failed spectacularly twenty five minutes after midnight. They got their answer. Just as the police were preparing to storm chance house he emerged unruffled and Serene Charles. Houston PREY THEIR SET. The scene in his paper God Salvation Church past present and future according to him chance spoke through his translator. Richard Loo saying even though God's image was not captured on television. I want everyone to believe that God is alive then. Chen told the press police and neighbors that they were free to consider his prior statements about God appearing on channel eighteen complete nonsense right after dismissing the validity of his March Twenty Fifth Prophecy. Chen held up pictures of airplane. Contrails and said in these months there have been so many flying crafts in the sky flying over our head. We don't have any reason to suspect they might be aircraft from the United States Air Force. I must stay here to research what we have witnessed in the pictures. The reporters were confused by this change in direction. What about his second prophecy? Did he still believe God would appear in a form identical to his own and perform miracles on March thirty? First Chen responded. It has become insignificant to discuss whether God will show up on March thirty first since the prophecy concerning today's program was not realized. The reporters refused to accept his evasive answer. They kept pressing until Chen finally said because we did not see God's message on channel eighteen tonight. My predictions of God. Arriving on March thirty first can be considered nonsense the reporters then ask channel. He considered himself a false prophet. Chen's response was unprecedented. He said I've never referred to myself as a prophet. In fact I would recommend that nobody believe what I said any more. The members of Cento stood around their spiritual leader as he spoke. They had sacrificed their jobs families and their home country all because of chance prophecies now. He blithely recommended that nobody ever take him seriously again. Despite this the cult members said nothing in the moment. Their faces remained expressionless as though remembering the presence of his followers for the first time Chen conceded that they had made significant financial sacrifices to follow him to that end he said I personally take responsibility to support them for the period. They were unemployed. Despite this promise Chen provided no elaboration about what form his supposed restitution will take instead. He absorbed himself further saying my followers have always enjoyed their individual freedom. Tomorrow they have the freedom to go wherever they want with that parting statement. Chen called the press conference to a close in contrast to the days leading up to the first prophecy the days leading up to the March thirty first prophecy. We're fairly quiet though. Chen told everyone to consider his words. Nonsense there was still a sense of anticipation in the air as the date approached especially among chance followers some members of Chen. Tau still believed that. Jesus Christ would appear in a form. Identical to Chen's they believed this Chen Christ hybrid would then duplicate himself Multiple Times. Walk through walls and speak all of the world's languages at will on March twenty seventh Chen set out a press. Release titled You Yourself. Are God in it. He wrote in truth. Human soul and conscience are homogeneous to the structure of God's character therefore seek the perfection of conscience in your soul. God will help you become God on the morning of March thirty first the police again. Coordoned-off Chen's Garland neighborhood for the second time. The press city approved credentials at the ready took their battle stations. In front of Chen's house this time even Chen's neighbors joined the fray gathering around his home to neighbors. Even when as far as to done alien costumes together they all waited for the prophesied our of ten. Am a few minutes before the clock struck ten. Chen walked out of his house through his translator. Richard Loo. He asked all the gathered to shake their own hand. Confused members of the press. The police and chance neighbors all complied each of them using one hand to shake their other. Chen then smiled Typically and told them that since they themselves were God then obviously God had duplicated himself Multiple Times. They adjust witnessed it. Each of them had shaken their own hands if they needed more proof. Chen implored them to consider the fact that each of them could speak and understand their own respective languages thus God was multi lingual God was on earth shaking hands and speaking languages so his prophecy was fulfilled. Still the press remain unconvinced so Chen decided to perform a demonstration that would prove his godly nature once and for all he decided to stare directly at the sun for a painfully awkward. Couple of minutes. Chen stared at the sky blinking rapidly. His eyes watering then. He triumphantly declared that no mere mortal could have stared at the sun like that without ill effect despite the embarrassing display when the reporters asked his followers if they would continue to dedicate their lives to Chen all of them raise their hands and shouted affirmatively in unison. Despite his failed prophecies they still trusted and believed in Chen. Their unwavering faith is not out of the ordinary and cults with. Doomsday predictions in his book. When prophecy fails social psychologist? Leon festinger called this phenomenon dissonance reduction. He explained that cult numbers will often deal with the dissonance of a failed prediction by doubling down and rededicating themselves to the cause. Chen's followers no doubt had similar feelings. They had sacrificed their jobs their relationships and the only lives they had ever known all to follow Chen. They likely felt it was too late to turn back now. Shortly after the March thirty first press conference Chen had another vision. This time God told him to go to Ole Cotton New York according to Charles Houston. Pray there's paper. Chen claimed that all caught was actually the place where God would transfer people from the third dimension to the fourth. The fact that going to all caught would also allow him to leave behind the humiliation of his failed. Prophecies was Shirley just a convenient bonus the move from garland to old cod. Cut Chen's following by two thirds. The decline was due in part to growing disillusionment among his members but the bulk of the losses were caused by visa problems. All of the members of Chen Ta were Taiwanese consequently they were unable to remain in the United States on tourist visas indefinitely so on May Thirteenth Nineteen Ninety eight when forty three year old. Chen made the move from garland all caught. He was accompanied by only thirty five members over the next year. He made two more prophecies. Both of which failed not much was heard from the group. After nineteen ninety nine the bulk of the media frenzy surrounding Chen. Tau died after the failed March. Thirty first prophecy however we do know that Chen had a falling out with a high ranking members of the group in two thousand two. It's unclear whether he's currently dead or alive as Chen is never been heard from since despite his anti-climactic end Han. Ming Chen was an atypical cult. Leader there's no evidence he financially or sexually exploited his followers instead he convinced them to search for an Abraham Lincoln. Look like and ask them to spend hours staring at the clouds perhaps more than anything. Chen was driven by desire to find a family to keep it. He was willing to do anything even promise. Miracles and create false. Hope that a wondrous world was waiting somewhere deep within the clouds..

"He gained momentum fast like Kim. The followers who flocked to his church where well paid professionals with several academics engineers and doctors among the ranks they will likely drawn to Chen because they view Tim as a similarly well educated authority on religion who was well-spoken and had done his research to grow the fledgeling movement. Chen urged his most faithful followers to travel to different cities in Taiwan and open satellite churches by nineteen ninety six four. Sla churches had been established across Taiwan that year Chen also self published his first book the practical evidence and study of the world of God and Buddha the thome outlined major beliefs including the idea that all living beings originated in central vortex after coming into existence. They passed into the material realm where they took the form of humans. Animals Angels or devils Chen preached that humans and animals possessed three souls the physical soul which dwelled in the body the conscious soul which resided in the mind and the main spiritual light according to Chen the level of spiritual light a being achieved determined. What form they'd take upon being reincarnated if a person increased their spiritual light during their time on earth they would be able to escape karmic reincarnation. This meant achieving enlightenment. A state of being Chen also called Buddha Hood but despite this absorption of some Buddhist theology chance beliefs straight away from traditional Buddhism in several key ways for example Chen preached that there were two major obstacles which prevented human beings from increasing their spiritual light. These obstacles were outside souls and devils outside. Seoul's where people who suffered of violent or unexpected death their macabre ending caused him to get lost on the way to the underworld thus dooming them to remain. Outside the reincarnation cycle forever these lost souls subsisted by draining human beings of their spiritual light. This concept of -Em Pyrrhic. Lonely ghosts is based on Taiwanese folklore. It's possible that Chen borrowed this aspect of his belief system from bedtime stories in his childhood. This law may have been especially impactful on him considering the sudden unexpected deaths of his parents. The next obstacle preventing people from achieving Buddha Hood are devils. According to Chen's book devil sought to possess beings to increase the level of evil in the world. Chen called the worst of these devils king. Satan's.

Wherever you're listening. It really does help this week in a one part episode. We're taking a deep dive into the Taiwanese. Ufo Cult founded by former college professor. Han Ming Chen. The cult went by many names. The True Way God's Salvation Church and the thoroughly descriptive moniker. The God saves the Earth Flying Saucer Foundation Peng Ming Chen followers clung to him because they believed he could save them from an imminent nuclear apocalypse instead he led them on a wild goose chase that involves searching for an Abraham Lincoln look like in Canada interpreting clouds and waiting for God to make his nationally televised debut. Han Ming Chen was born on April. Twenty second nineteen fifty five in Shah e a small town in southwestern Taiwan. His father worked as a merchant while his mother stayed at home to care for him. Unfortunately both of Chen's parents when he was young. His mother was the first to pass after suffering a stroke. His father died just a few years. Later Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note. Vanessa is not licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg. According to James Wolfson a clinical psychologist losing apparent. At a young age quote causes a person's sense of security and safety to be disrupted this disruption in one's formative years might later manifest as depression anxiety or perhaps a desire for certainty and control. What occurred between chance? Childhood and his college years is unclear but it is clear that his parents death had a profound impact on him though he was raised as a Buddhist at some point between his parents death and his enrollment in university Chen began identifying as an atheist perhaps the loss of both parents in quick succession caused him to lose faith. Chen graduated with a bachelor's degree in political science and went on to get a master's in social science. The discipline may have attracted Chan because it gave order to society. According to strict controlled parameters this type of certainty is likely what he craved after the loss of his parents Chen excelled in his studies in one thousand nine hundred three. When he was twenty-eight years old he got a job as an associate professor at Chapman Junior College. He stayed at the school for almost a decade then in nineteen ninety-two despite identifying as an atheist for the entirety of his adult life thirty seven year old Chen had his first religious revelation. While working one day he claims that he suddenly heard a voice in his head imploring him to pursue a religious life just might the vagueness of the instruction. Chen took to it eagerly. He poured over religious tax of all kinds. He devoured the Buddhist Sutras and the Dow de Ching he even read the Christian Bibles old and new testaments after all of his arduous research chain decided that the best course of action was to join a UFO cult. Though Chen claimed he sought out religion because of divine intervention. He could have been driven by something else. When Chen had his revelation at the age of thirty seven he was not only an orphan but he also had no wife or kids of his own. It's possible his search for religious community or a family was spurred by loneliness. A study conducted by social cognition expert. Nicholas Epilepsy bolsters this hypothesis. His research showed that lonely people are more likely to believe in God and seek out new social connections if social connection was which was looking for he founded in the UFO cult led by Ms Yu-chen no relation by the time. Thirty eight year old Hon. Ming Chen Join misused group in nineteen ninety-three she had a couple hundred followers means. You preached a theology that combined aspects of Buddhism with Ufology. Initially Chen responded to her teachings thriving and his new community however misused penchant for charging her disciples exorbitant fees soon agitated Chen in one thousand nine hundred five forty year old. Chen decided misuse. Fees were predatory and immoral. According to a paper written by Academic Charles Houston pray ther- Chen then concluded that issue was a heavenly devil inhuman guys after telling her as much. He broke with the group but Chan wasn't ready to quit spirituality entirely he didn't want to give up his new community so he absconded from misused group with around a dozen of her followers. Chen co-opted them as well. As several aspects of misused theology and formed his own religious movement called the Soul Light Resurgence Association or S. L. A. Two houses followers. He opened a church in Tainan.

"Just like what am I watching 'em there's a San Francisco ballet's doing extreme but it's all Mendelssohn they're just You know in. In addition to the incidental music it's It's other pieces of medicine of Australia's knocks at And some other random pieces that have been orchestrated by Yeah I mean it's funny with belly I mean there's a famous ballet of Egypt Nagin and by John Canco the choreographer and Tastic Eugene Oregon. That's nominal uses. None of the same music. One of the music and on top of that is still uses all tchaykovsky music. And you're like what happened. Bizarre eases his seasons cases when each of the seasons has been orchestrated fantastic. It's gorgeous but it's just bizarre. You know so. It's very very different very different music. But yeah task over. Yeah well Mushrooming Luke. Thank you so much for being with us. We've got two more questions if you if you have the time here. Yeah we we've discussed the Very interesting music just now But is there a piece of music that you particularly enjoy that you feel like hasn't been performed enough or ballet that you wish you could perform that maybe has been performed enough for you feel like should be performed more often You know it's funny because you have to ask it's hard because I have ballet's that I absolutely love have crap music when there's pieces that are just like other leave phenomenal music. That should be before more than the dancing tends to be the choreography as doesn't match as powerfully I feel like that oftentimes. My bucket list is Was when I was a young connector was always the PROKOFIEV's works But you know when you have Juliet Cinderella has some of the most fantastic music prodigal son in all three of them end in c major and the affect of the very end are completely different prodigal son of this wrenching son that comes back and still in C Major Cinderella this effortless in no pure release. And then you have Romeo and Juliet tragic see major than ever happened but a there's happy ending to Romeo Juliet. The original ending that has never performed that should be performed. Because that's prokofiev's original intention Which is ludicrous. Because it uses music from films winning got when Stalin basic answered it you basically said okay fine. We'll you know we'll change it. And then he repurpose the music for the Fifth Symphony. You know I think that I think that that ending is really interesting. I think people should try to use them more. But I don't know I think ballet companies oftentimes shy away from the more things you know like The like Brahms or something There's a fantastic. Work of the Brahms Minor Channel But it's been orchestrated and it's fantastic. And I think that if companies experimented more with some of the repertoire that or catcher musicians really dig into. I think it's really would be interesting. You know but that I mean I'm a sucker for for the Nineteenth Century and early twentieth century Russians in so I mean. It's it's hard to get away from you know Emmy when the clock hits midnight. I remember the first time I listened to it. I literally had no clue as high school but I literally had no clue what was making those sounds on stage. That's why you know it's the same thing when you go through to symphony at the very end where the army army comes in you can actually hear the machinery it just like. Oh my God that orchestration utterly amazing in like that's and Yeah I get A. I won't shy away from trying to do that over and over again to the you mentioned Stravinsky earlier but you didn't mention which one do the Stravinsky's get get performed with staging because I've never heard of them being performed yeah. Stravinsky unbalancing had phenomenal relationship in. It's hilarious because balance-sheet would go to Stravinsky and say hey. We need a couple more seconds here. Can you add some more music? Servants gave us the stadium. Like give me precisely exactly how many seconds over right that amount in you have to be accurate with me you know. They have a lot of a lot of this works Drum Robbins too. I mean like New York City Ballet's Stravinsky and balanchine in our the violin. Concerto is is warmer famous Balanchine's infancy You know there's there's a whole tonnage trubisky works Let alone obviously the odd prokofiev's to driven Firebird him you know like a lot of the ballet is a lot of So performed most a lot by ballet companies. Registering scholars just had a new production. I know Nash Recently fantastic when you have the entire orchestra sitting at you know it's it's Yeah it's great new and then our last question are billboard question so if you could erect a billboard that all young conductors would have to see on their way to work every morning. What would you you know? I think it's cheesy as the news. I think he's just like open. Be Open to things. He's open to people into situations. I think when connectors come to me and ask about how to advance your career. It's almost like the millennial thing right. Now it's not that you get stuck in a job in your at the job for twenty years it's more about your skill set right and people like they have eight or year like statistic nowadays. It's like eight to thirteen career changes or not coaching job. Changes in the course of life type. I think for connectors you know. It's about developing your skill. Set is being able to talk to patrons being able to hug talk to audience members being able to rehearse. Well you know marrying also didn't the swell and she practiced it. She would sit in a room in practice being efficient. Clear the point and so. That's that's something that needs to be worked on. I mean orchestras. You can tell nowadays. They seem like every single. Workers are Orchestras we'll have reviews of conductors. Have sit there and that review will follow around for the rest of your career. You know being a being open to people you know like we're talking about making personal connections. No and I think that people can take extreme where it's about networking for networking sake. But if you're genuine trying to connect people really learning from them or you know listening to them. I think that you know things. Open up a lot. More people understand that networking is a part of it. But they really just like it when you were just normal person and you want to connect to them as people you know about and I think just being open to new experiences you know not being worried about your first experience with ballet but using as experience to try to you know Just dive right in. You know. I remember a friend of mine was Talking about a colleague of his which residency for surgery and the the surgeon was rating him beyond belief. Just like how can you do? This and my friend was talking to his friend and he was just like I can't believe you not just more depressed. Him He my kids really beating up guys like you know what am learning every single second and I know that every day. I'm going to be progressing and I'm not him you know I don't have his experience and so everything that I can take from. Just drop away all the tags on him. You know it's GonNa be something learn from and I think that You know the idea is like one too good to do this type of you know work or you know putting in your dues. I think just being opened in getting your skill set to the point where you're is as valuable and useful to orchestras as possible. You know some POPs conductors. I mean I mean so some. Orchestras need have people that are efficient on the podium. You know you don't have time to talk about your approach to you know You know flame overture when his Foreign Education Concert? They wanted to be put together and they wanted to be respectable and clean. And if you have more time to expound on it great and some orchestras. They don't they want people to rehearse the hell out of them. You know y'all Vaden in New York. I mean he's a builder heaver. Horses no matter. If you're you know the biggest superstars in the world he's still GonNa sit there and like actually coach. Rehearse put together things and you know some orchestras. That doesn't work somewhere. it's absolutely amazing for and he became a director. New York because that's what they're looking for out and You know his reputation. Yeah I love that article. That article was talking about how this one player wanted. His former orchestrated was mentioning. How how they were very he was very gruff with them. And just didn't have good and you said flat out you know he didn't try to PC While they didn't practice I call them out on it. They can live with it. You know it was like well I mean like obviously. That's not for everybody. That's not for every orchestra but you know for certain orchestras. They're looking for builders Orchestras they're looking for somebody to take for musicianship. As you're like you know the phrasing a certain style of approaching music You know I think that it's just being open to as many experiences as he can. And letting yourself continually grow at every moment that idea that we can't understand bronze until like we're forty or fifty s not necessarily that specific age. The idea that we're always we're always learning more and Even when I do run Juliette if I'm like eighty I still wanna feel like if you know they're pulling things from it there's understanding blasting. I'll say I think it's just contents but my professor page in like one of the most mentor for me. He was asking if a rep rep I wanted to do brought in Strauss's four last songs and the four last songs are all about resignation from reminiscence from looking back over your life and obviously I'm the site little twenty two year olds Grad student than sitting there. And he's like. How could you possibly know what this music you know what? He was feeling when he wrote this music. And you know like me. I just love the music because it's gorgeous orchestration. The words are poignant it's very meaningful as deep and whatnot. But you know he wasn't. Meaning that to be flippant towards like. You can't understand this but it's very. It's it's being the idea that we're always growing that when I'm hopefully you know The way I approach Strauss Now is going to be different. Like you know Glenn. Gould is recording two completely different. You know that You know you get different things from some awesome. Well thanks so much for joining us today.

"Steps right or you to know the dancers and like you do singers orchestra players. You know I mean like you do that with orchestra you say. Oh you know what that guy is. You know alone doesn't have as much to make sure that they're gathering we help him out a little bit or you know how this happened. This performance were headed principal Horn player. Come in who hadn't played any of the rehearsals or concerts. And you know. Obviously you know exactly. How did that happen? You know like I don't know how that situation you find yourself by moments like yeah your function is GonNa under. The point is to make sure that they really are on top of what was to be entrances. And you know there's this thing with the ballet performance but you know so it was a little different but the principal clarinetist came in and Luckily Carrie Bell from the symphony used to be part of the ballet. But also it's nominal musician and he just didn't know anything like Bali is like opera. There could be a lot of Firmani If you're in rehearsals just navigating where you're doing. Cut off in the Levion or in a show bars with just a single beat. You know just a single down me actually conductor them all these little things like that. He just didn't break a sweat mazing but you know I think it was more the fact that a new trusted in the function of the conductor me on the podium at that point actually treating slightly as you had too much more aware of that or you know you feel like you know. Second Violence always Russia. That's one place you have to figure out how to manage that with different orchestras you know. Youth Orchestra. Rehearsals I mean a performance differently than professional orchestra. You know It's just I think all about the sort of awareness of what the possibilities are what the issues might what issues might arise and how to either you know handle them or try to To adjust and how does the? What's the rehearsal schedule for Bali like? Is it similar to opera You know you've got about maybe a month or to get on the stage at the very end. How does that different? Because I I how that is because the dancers are learning it for maybe two to three weeks or months or two months even on beforehand and in Studio Rehearsals. They are of course. Rehearsals like the quarter Valet ensembles and the principal dancers are working separately and the conductor comes in oftentimes at the beginning to make sure that the tempe or not ludicrous and then towards the end. Where you know. The Orchestra obviously only shows up for the last few rehearsals but is exactly the same setup as opera. You'll have piano tech rehearsals the first time on stage with piano you'll have the first time with Orchestra Orchestra. Tech's you'll have the ORCHESTRA DRESS. Rehearsals actual flower dress. Rehearsals with costumes sets lights and everything. And it's almost exactly the same structure the only differences that sometimes while this happens in Opportu but not as much. But sometimes they'll cut out a lot of rehearsals of its repertoire. Did they don't order this very familiar to them. You know like some orchestras like New York City. Ballet I think doesn't even have hersal with orchestra and dancers before let's go directly into performances because snap crackle for them you know whatever forty performances year but Some San Francisco Ballet is one of the most a normalized in terms of rehearsal schedules for a three hour ballet. They'll have nine hours of of hersal with the orchestra. Usually three three hours or eight or nine hours. And then they'll have their to orchestra tax to dress rehearsals. Oftentimes maybe just one dress rehearsal. And then the performances. So it's it's it's very very similar to Opera in the structure especially the way they prepare and assemble things at the end. You know I just I'm reading through John Missouri's first bucket and I had an interesting. Have you have you rented? Yeah Yeah I just read the ballet section the other day actually so I just wanted to hear your. He talks a little bit about You know when you're conducting opera you have to look much higher to get to their faces and their their breasts Their mouth and everything to get your visual information there. But it's elise you're in ballet as Are you are you spending a lot of time looking up at the stage I would? It depends you know what I mean like. There are certain points where you're literally glued to the dancer because every little step every millisecond. You know there's this thing called breezes for men and women too but mainly men where they're jumping up with their feet sort of parallel to each other doing little flaps basically They wouldn't call Gestures the field and IT's incredibly difficult. And they tend to do a whole bunch of them in a row maybe down the diagonal across the entire stage and every little moment. They're getting more and more tired. And it's one of those instances where you're really trying to help make sure that the tempo even like you know a degree from one. Twenty eight coordinate equals one twenty to one. Twenty one would be death on as other times. What you're really looking at them every single moment their time so you don't at all sleeping beauty of notorious because it is one of the most balance of scores there are so many variations are Sony Entire Third Act has nothing to do with the story. The story ended at the Second Act in the third act is literally just celebration potatoes dancing and you know. It's very different roommate. Juliet Romeo and Juliet is almost completely threw composed. And there's very few things you actually have to really just look up for you know. It's nice to if you if you want to really connects but oftentimes for coffee from Juliette. But there's not as many of them as a As before young. Juliette shut Updated it's all about the the whatever temple you guys decide on. You know it's it's it's music. It's much faster than the monthly dance. So it's it tends to be You just get to focus on the precision of the orchestra because that's obviously it's very very difficult for the orchestra articulation an unsolvable the strings but Yeah you know for me. I'm a bit short Asian stereotype that in short in so they have to raise the podium quite a bit because if you don't see the very if you can't see the very bottom of the stage all the way across it's actually very difficult because you know. Their shoes are only like four or five inches from the ground. Even if I'm point and so if you can't see when they're actually stepping when they are You know rising up onto their foot or would not. It's actually very very difficult. So some pits are easier than others some kids. I literally standing on the tips on my toes while the work is is underneath my feet in terms of how deep it is so it can be very challenging. I think sometimes well on your dancers for standing on your toes is not as maybe not the rest of us are you do you. Do you still dance at all now. I don't even play. I play piano. I it concentrates quite a bit. I think it's just amount of time. You know like You know I would love to play more but I think the amount of time to warm up in practice. It's very difficult to find nowadays and I'm not one of those Kansas that Lena like Argh rich that doesn't practice at all. What am I doing or three today? We're not just You know I actually had to practice a warm up and make sure I don't like injure myself and I think that in terms of the score study I mean it's also you know you want to you know feel like you're not just you know behind your scores of time so. I think I tend to devote more time to that now. So get physical activity on the yeah Does your does your score. Study differ depending on what type I mean. You Know Ballet Opera and symphonic choral whatever resume is kind of similar no. It's it's very different. Because Nowadays Valley companies can send you. The choreography in the is fantastic. Because you know you can get online with through the Mayo Youtube. Whatever you can get videos of their entire production so you a can idea most importantly you know what? The choreography is beforehand Be you can get an idea of what the ensemble is like who the players are like It's actually really great. You know I'm going to do in Nashville with National Ballet. I'm doing Juliet and it's great because you can hear you can see. The choreography was exactly the same as they did into thirteen. But you can hear the orchestra and you know it's National Symphony. I mean it's phenomenal. Symphony ends in other parts of it. You're just like wow that really well let's just GonNa miss that. But they did it. And you know it's really great because you can see.
"ming" Discussed on Podium Time
"Music during the same at the same time how how well can they hear it or is it? Mostly you timing with the dancers. What they're doing. It's I feel like it's exactly like opera. There is a there is there is a ale and there's certain points where we certainly just dictated music. Certain points where they are technical difficulties in technically difficult issues that they have that sort of imply a certain tempo and there are some times where you actually have to negotiate in the moment and you know so balancing the great choreographer founder of New York City ballet you know he said the music was first and foremost and you just deal with it. In fact very much like opera singers are points where the dancers are supposed to look at the conducted. Sagrado when to start in how to start you know And so there are companies nowadays are exactly the opposite where they say you know this moment. For instance I did a sleeping beauty and it caused a lot of controversy because some of the ballet dancers think. This is the most discussing this way of indulgence. Ever but there's a point where this answer is very end is balancing on one foot and she is being courted by four different suitors and it's symbolic of her independence from four sitters is need anybody to help with the chain. Basically doing it by herself. It shows that her fiercest independence etc. You're supposed to do it for a couple of seconds accepted this Valerie and it did for about. I would say twenty full seconds all right but the muse one at the same time I mean like and it's very clear at the very end with punctuation for the end and so I can't do. The punctuation is at the end and suddenly have just like standing in silence while the entire audience. The student wanted to do and so. I basically had to stop orchestra smooch for Mata and the entire orchestras looking at me. Like what in the world is going on. And it wasn't musically the most it wasn't musically disturbing because there's basically speak tiffany role and to the big core those being held as big dominant court. You know so. It's not that bad. However you know I mean for the dancers. They felt that the dancer who is dancing stage was being indulgent. Was being ridiculous and being more of a circus act than Lasco ballet and so you know at that point for those decision points where you're like or hold the music back and literally habit folds or twenty seconds of actually really long time like are really really longtime and so you know there you know. The brass numbers actually dropped out. Because you can't do that to them. They're playing six three full very adagio bars before that slow tempo bars before that and so they they basically almost dropped out. And the tiffany players. Just sitting there on a For decent role for the entire time But he was one of those moments where you know like you know realize that live. Performance has a lot of Power but you know. I think that in reality there are a lot of times where you have companies that really feel like the answer is needed to dictate certain tempe and in rehearsal just like with opera singers. It's more about trying to figure that interplay in figuring out. Hey you know this is a temple that we have to take because there was one time where I was doing. Nutcracker and there was nothing in consequence inconsequential going happening on stage. It was Clara little girl. The Little Girl Clara not in the second act but the the little girl Clara going off and having a stage changed before the mice come out and you know every started nutcracker and she was taking too long and as a result the music by for Q to come on. And she didn't come on. And so the choreographer told me you know the music fast and I'm like you know actually just changed author and you. I mean like that's the obvious thing I mean it was. You know. There's one point where the balloons are holding this very very long notes before as the basis chillers Scotto. And you can't try that longer. They literally will run out of breath and just sounds ridiculous but you know we. It was one of the negotiating. You workout But you know like we did an opera all the time I mean. We have You know Bel Canto singers saying well you know what for these four bars? I'M GONNA DO Double Time Lucia Lucia if like two years ago and you know it's as tradition. He say. Hey these two bars we're going to double time and then we're going to make this slightly faster so my matic Tastic and then I'm going to hold it from out on this note and then adds sixteen bars here. We have a lot of manipulation with music For for for opera I think ballet dancers sometimes get too often stereotype that they're trying to destroy the music but I think that this conductors is to try to cigarette how to negotiate. Both worlds is to make them look and feel great but also let the music connects to the movement. And so that we loop. Don't lose phrasing That the music has overarching shape. But it also supports the dancers same time. Yeah knowing the flexibility of musicality an expression than office the opposite of the Metro. Yeah Oh you mean like. It'd be ludicrous to say to the to the opera singer he like okay. I'M GONNA look at this temple this temple and hopefully they'll be great. You know when you're doing upper you're obviously listening Entire time what if they're having a bad night and they can't sustain a high note as as much as they can. You know you'd have to have that sort of seems woody and I think that for dancers It's the same thing that you know especially because dance world you're not dealing with one. Cast and a secondary cast a cover cast you're dealing with maybe three completely even past of principals at all have their gaze of Or different strengths. I mean the stereotypes. That obvious stereotype. Is that the taller. Dancers are going to be slightly slower because they They're not as quick as the short answer right and so each performance might actually have slightly different corners or even just flat out. Tempe now the The sleeping beauty lady standing for for twenty seconds was that was that a in a performance. How would how did that happen? many yeah. There's there's a lot of ridiculous performance juries but that wasn't a performance And she the audience was amazing. I mean obviously every second. They were getting louder ladder. cheering and she got the meaning of Do Ben but also at the show too but She had you know it's not uncommon. For what the happen One of my mentors was talking. About how the same thing happened to him. And it's just one of those things that can happen in sleeping beauty depending on So then how does the relationship work with Those decisions are you working with individual dancers like coaching an opera. Or is it mostly with choreographer director? Like when you're deciding is this hit gonna come at the beginning or the end of the jump. Who who is that decision being made with the collaboration you know the the interesting thing about Ballet is that it is structured very much like operate. You know the General Quarter Ballet. The the company does SAMBA. Numbers is sort of like the chorus master in opera right and there is a chorus master. Valley Nestor that will help lead them The principal dancers is like you have principal coach as part of the opera. And then have the choreographer him or herself was like the director at end. Artistic Director of the company is very much involved. Sometimes too like if you're at an artistic If you're getting opera company where it has though stopping instead of email this and talk to the director negotiate and so oftentimes you get competing information quarter ballet. Ballet Master wants tempo certain way but the principal wants a certain way than you hear completely opposite things from the choreographer and the director. I mean we can have that in opera. But in in general it is negotiation that happens and The director are the two people that you generally have the last. Say at the way the they have the The power to change things quite a bit and so they're the ones that you negotiating with. You know there's this There's a fantastic geographer Cathy Marston. Who's making big waves right now? And she has a lot of work in England and she was doing speech with Episode Ballet Blind which is a fantastic work but she said in this one scene. It doesn't make a difference what the tempo is. I need for the scene to show the tragedy of the situation here. And so whatever you want to do with music to bring out that It will the dance is not going to be time to it. They can do day but I also tell them. The dancers at their job is to you know the certain tragedy and resignation. And so you know. It's very interesting moment because for me. I hadn't heard that very often from Choreography for you know. And sometimes they say you know. It's actually too much on the music. It's it's actually feeling like it's a little circus like if everything is just like POW BOOM. You know exactly on the same note. I'm so those discussions are really great to have it whom I think a it makes us feel more connected to the to the repertoire. Anyway we know what the purpose of the scenes are artistic creators standpoint and also you know the way we approach worker. Stra can also have a lot of impact you know if they're doing developed a which is just an extension of the leg. If it's very quick you know you don't want the music to language and sort of Soft right you can do things to change their relation of that attack of note to accentuate what they're doing or to try to bring out some other emotion aspects.

He grew increasingly singley committed to keeping this fantasy alive after fifty three days when Mary realize that he would never release them. She waited until he left after work then removed the hinges on the closet door warming had trapped her in. Beth once she was out of the closet. Mary called the sheriff's Department and thankfully they didn't have to wait long within moments deputies arrived and spotted Mary. Beth as they searched the property.

In Saint Paul in an ill-fated coincidence Ming was led into the courthouse just as Mary and Beth or being escorted out to be taken home as he passed her. Ming screamed at Mary. Why did you go.

Marion Beth went home to irving and Stephen as dozens of neighbors seminary students and members of their Baptist congregation celebrated their return. The staffers went to stay with Mary's parents in Duluth. She said on her first night home. She was too excited to sleep for the first time in week.

During the transfer Richard took the the money when he got out of jail he cashed means check and bought himself a car but he made no efforts to help me saying no way okay. Do I want to get involved. I don't want nothing to do with him. So Ming started thinking of another way out at the jail. Prisoners were allowed to select candy from snack cart each day. Ming would take a kit Kat candy bar he would eat the candy then save the aluminum foil wrapper. He began hoarding the foil and plan to use it to disable a security alarm but a deputy caught me with the foil as well as two screws he had taken from the bottom of the cafeteria chairs and confiscated the items after that. Ming was designated a maximum some security prisoner. Ming lost the privilege of eating in the cafeteria and he was segregated from the other inmates.

"Letter to irving in this letter. Mary said she needed some time away. Okay to think before their trip when irving receives a note he immediately turned it over to the FBI. This forced investigators to consider here the possibility that Mary may have left of her own volition but it didn't fit in with what they knew about the staffers. Authorities interviewed a number of friends and relatives. All of them said that the staffers were happy family. Mary was devoted to her husband. She would never leave leave without talking it over with Irving I and she certainly wouldn't keep Beth from speaking to her father ultimately the FBI concluded that Mary's DISAPP- doctor had forced her to write the letter they did not publicize their thoughts out of fear that he might kill his hostages if he knew he was still being investigated gated once the letter was sent. Ming felt safer but he continued to keep Mary and Beth and his cramped stifling bedroom closet it. He wouldn't let them leave even to eat or drink.

Everything could change in an instant everything she took for granted could be ripped away from her but Mary wouldn't let herself fall apart or lose control. She had to hold herself together for Bet Sake. She had to protect her daughter. From this evil at all costs and perhaps with God's help they would somehow get through this. It couldn't go on forever. Perhaps their captor would grow bored with them. Perhaps he would feel remorse and see the error of his ways. Mary didn't care how it happened. As long as meaning kept his promise to set them free that Wednesday morning Mary heard meaning wake up and get dressed. She felt her hopes rise as he prepared for the day and then sink when she heard him. Leave the House for work. She realized that meeing wasn't going to keep his word.

"Type one diabetes and little kids is prolific bedding. Because the only way they can go to all the sugar that's building up in their bloodstream. But I didn't know that despite my very fancy spenc- degrees. So I was there searching and in a funny way, I'm truly not calling Google out about this. But in a funny way, Google knew or could have known, I know this for certain because I work in this space if they'd really wanted to they could have sent me a message. It says, you know, Dr Ming, you might wanna check in with your pediatrician now, you can understand why they do it because they could be wrong, and what would the liability of being wrong be and what trust to they have. But what's interesting is so many companies have punted on that. And simply said, you know, what we're not engaged with us at all. And you have to understand that is a moral decision as well. That is the decision to allow some number of kids to die from Kito acidosis from severe blood acidity accumulating from essentially them digest. Getting their own body, and you could go through and look at suicide rates and all these things on social media. These companies actually care they are genuinely running research projects internally I know because I collaborated on some of them, but turning that into public policy turning that into a genuine opportunity for them to do what they believe is right as individuals and get around their fears as a corporation is truly challenging Eric Schmidt. When he was at Google famously said that their job is to right up to the edge of creepy without overstepping. It had Google sent you that message saying you to check your son out. Would you have felt that overstep the edge of creepy nece? Well, again, I am far from normal human being I've been tainted by having spent far too much time around cyborgs and being one myself having said that that isn't the only response your child has diabetes or.

"Pointless. And yet go read any of the hundreds of policy papers put out about the future of work and tell me whether you find the word person in it it taught a talk about workers and skills about reskilling and programming, but we're off endlessly fungible widgets. And because the economy will need creativity will just magically self actualize become. Creative. And you don't have to study human beings for very long to realize what a foolish notion that is. So I kind of said on neither side. I don't think as have to destroy all the jobs and concentrate all the power in the hands of very few, nor do I think the people will just magically freed of having to pay their rent free of the burdens of the industrial economy will all become artists and doctors if you could point out to me the line trailing outside of every library all over the world. I might believe you, but we don't pay artists anything anyways. If you wanted to be when you get to be one right now, and very few people are that you heard earlier today. I programs is being expert decision-makers expertise depends on inputs, which make them experts. Is there a worry that the inputs into these expert systems are really they should be? Yeah. So there's two takes on this. And. I think the consensus view in the machine learning community and one that is really entered the public mind is we need to understand the data that we feed into this thing, you know, ten years ago. I got a call from the Wall Street Journal, and they said Dr Ming Google just labeled a couple as guerrillas a black couple is a racist. And my reflexive response was it's the same as the rest of us depends on how you raise it. And it is true. In that context that most AI systems are overwhelmingly trained on the job resumes. The images the criminal history of certain classes of people, and they become deeply biased as a result. Here's where I break with the consensus. They've described a genuine problem. My response is that if our solution to that is we need to show. Our a is a fan. Antecedent world to make them believe everything is wonderful and harmonious and black people are just as good as white people. Then our models have failed because they should have been able to figure that out from the real world because it's already true. So the problem is and forgive me, if this gets a little wonky, the vast majority of relationships to be found in data or correlations not causes. In fact, the overwhelming number in any real world data set are just a bunch of spurious correlations that have nothing to do with. What actually makes it great employees or whether someone committed a crime or not and yet modern official intelligence is dominated by those correlations. And so we're frequently misled the most famous recent case was the system Amazon tried to build for it self to improve hiring that turned out to be unfixable sexist. If you even had the word women's on. Your resume. It would downgrade the resume, and as it turns out I had the chance years ago to tell them that that approach wouldn't work, and they didn't take my advice. So we need not only more responsible publication of AI understanding that real world date is messy, and if we're looking at correlations it's going to mislead us..

"In some ways which people actually think of me as one of the nicest kind of people wanna notable that you wanna take notice certain things but i feel like i'll be the bad guy is that make sense like it's not just him like an athlete also no he's not taking pictures right now or whatever because i'd rather have someone mad at me than at those sort of people but it's i guess what i'm trying to say is are very clear about i'm not famous and and the same thing i mean sure maybe people know that i was doing a movie preview and hotel room extra with people who'd be like oh you're in hotel rooms well yeah i actually do a show called extra shirts and hotel rooms to like it was like a joke about more people saw ming in the hotel rooms doing movie previews than they did anywhere anywhere else but i think that the moment that you can use yourself with actually being one of the interview subjects where you sort of lose a little bit of your head about you and i grew up in a family that would never let me do that i think that even the last time we just podcast i was like oh my father would kill me conjunctions and then i got a live injection it and i was like oh this is definitely not and i went back i made take it out i look like an asshole i was like i said we've never going to do this and somehow i did this because i thought that it was a better and now i look like an idiot i about my girls to that which back you can dissolve that so all his writing world with there's certain things in life where you're like wait a minute this isn't who i am it was never who i was supposed to be it's never who i wanted to be so just be careful as you go down and trying to maintain you know humility like.
