"Moss but my distributor swear by atlas shingles when moss is an issue on another another no. I'm eager to read the recent issue months recent article on slate. I'm hoping guys got it right. You have to tell us the army. I'm sure you will. He'll be sure to tell us. So you've had this problem brian. Yeah and you know. Interestingly i had a roof that when i bought the house had a tremendous amount the north north facing roof which i always a lesson in in how roofs performed with different exposures. Because we had bought the house. With probably a i don't know maybe a maybe a twenty year old roof on it and the south facing pitch. They get sunlight for a good part of the day was in great shape. Pi add another twenty years left and the north facing pitch shade was covered with moss. The shingles were curled. The reflect the Look terrible look like need to be replaced immediately that that's it. I didn't replace it immediately. Has for quite a long time without doing anything about the moss and never had a leak or a problem due to the mosque. I i just didn't remove it because my intention was to replace the roof. It just didn't happen very quickly I did replace the roof with Eventually i did replace the with with new shingles and ignorantly didn't do anything about the fact that moscow on the roof and i knew that that was gonna happen. I didn't put in any zinc copper strips or anything like that. And i didn't use a you know a product with microbial protection and i had not no time instantly. I think i was. I was putting in the top course in the moss was growing up the roof. That's i tried the product. And like i said it might experience. Was that it with the mosques than i had that the died but but didn't it was gonna take some sort of you know some sort of physical efforts to remove it from the roof which points do exactly what what down he's talking about. Is that effort. Damages the shingles. It's really hard to to scrub or scrape shingle without scraping away. The grandmas granules surface. Yeah i'm pretty sure. I could get mine off with a push broom. But like when i've been up there cleaning the gutters i've poked pieces of it and you can pull it off readily but like you said it pulls off the granules and that's not right. That's the sun protection and pollution protection that for the shingle. It's the wear layer. If you will. Yeah do you have moss on your roof. Matt do you care. I don't have any on this roof. It's relatively new is put in twenty sixteen. I think the year before we bought the house. So i have noticed any yet but we. It's relatively slow low slope roof. The house faces directly south and the north side. I mean we definitely get a lot of stuff on the On the siding on the north side. And i spray that with and forget all the time but Y'all last for you. I have been doing it pretty much every year. I would say it doesn't last a year probably and you're citing is vinyl right. Yeah yeah but yeah it gets all green and funky jeff. You have a lot of tree cover on the back of your house. Do you have moss algae growing on your roof shingles Yeah i do too. I bet you're not liking it. No up do you intend to do anything about it. No not really. I mean i hopefully get another ten years out of the roof. Almost twenty years old. So would you use one of these shingle products for the reroof. I would definitely think about it. Yeah i should've asked yami if there is a big price difference between you conventional shingles and these others. That are better at this problem dealing better at dealing with this problem. I can't it can't be too much difference. I'm guessing so. What are you guys have planned for your projects. You go first. Jeff do you have anything upcoming No not really almost projects big and expensive. So they're all told. How about you. Matt still working on that project. Got back to that so bill. Most of the doors for the cabinets. I there's just one door left to build big But all small one. So i got a paint those this weekend. So are you working in your garage woodshop. Have you got that. That setup towards a functional workspace. Well i'm using it. I wouldn't say it's necessarily functional exactly because there's so much stuff. Every time i use a tool. I have to move a bunch of stuff to be able to access it. And i only put in one to forty volt receptacle. So you know. I've got three tools at need it so actually last weekend made myself To forty extension cord. So that. I can run that you can leave your in the same place but plumbing. Yeah so that was fun but it works fine. Give us up panel in there. Yeah there is. I don't know. I still got to figure out what's going on that sub panel. There's like a fifty amp breaker going to. I don't know what. So that's your table. Saw not get right. Note while i i put in another breaker for the four the table saw circuit but there was an existing fifty am. I don't know where. I don't know what it could possibly go to so i know it's not to the well there's another. There's another breaker. In the main panel for that. But well that would be an insanely huge pump. Ray fifty amps is like maybe they had a welder or something like that you know. That's that's a lot of juice. It's possible i haven't found the receptacle or whatever it goes to yet. I haven't traced it so we'll we'll find eventually. So there's drywall or some kind of Paneling and that's face the most of the garage is drywalled. So that's kind of nice that's going to make it more comfortable in there. Yeah except it's most well. The one wall that is like has the most exposure mostly isn't drywalled and there's no. There's no drywall on the ceiling. And it's a event assembly so it's pretty much as cold as it is outside. Do you have plans to cover the ceiling. Yeah it's just trying to figure out exactly how i'm going to do that because you know it's twenty six foot span and you know that's the ties that are in there. The where the ceiling joists i guess are space four foot center so i can't really attach drywall to it safely. And so you know. I gotta find some other twenty six foot. Two by sixes. That's a challenge. I love you. Get that these days so i think you buy. Lv al right. Yeah yup well bryan. You've got anything planned for the weekend. Some some rest from this from the last couple of weeks and then probably probably more work. That's that's how it goes.

"Some enterprising plumber was trying to save five minutes by the primer on. Pvc pipe is the co changing. And if you're very risk averse and one atop job should you stick to using a purple primer anyway. E- is it better good question. Doug so my understanding is the twenty fifteen irc did allow you to stop using Primer on pvc solvent welded joints for pipes that were non pressurized and smaller than four inches in diameter. And doug. if you want to read along it is provisioned p. Three zero zero three point. Nine point two and that's in the plumbing section. Obviously and that's where you'll find details about that matt didn't you dive into this with a q. And a. i don't remember that one. No matt don't you think you should dive into this for acumen. Probably should yeah. I mean. I don't know what inspectors are looking for. Lost you brian. What's going on with your sound muted. Would you say brian. I said the problem is that we usually go to doug for answers. Plumbers are still using primer. Because i think it makes for a better connection right.

Glenn Close, 'Hillbilly Elegy'
"Hi everybody. I'm peter travers. This is popcorn What's happening at the movies and my guest today. is glenn. close one of the best actors on this planet. You heard it from me and you heard from everybody else. That caesar in anything you people need to get now busy on netflix. And watch glenn. In hillbilly jay where her talent is shining on its highest being. So congratulations to you. God thank you peter. Thank you very much. And i'm looking at you and when i see you and you'll be billy algae i say who the hell is that. What about this transformation that you make to play this character. Well you know. It started. When i when i knew i was going to do memo is started with. I can't be distracted by my own face. I can't you know if i think the audience sees my face. I'll be very distracted by that though. I called matthew mongol reading. Oh genius makeup artist. Special effects makeup in mossy oak own views is done my wigs for practically my entire career and they had done also janet mcteer ni- and albert and matthew came up from texas where he's kind of semi retired when i still had a house out you know in westchester and we sat in my kitchen and he experimented with with shapes because it was really amazing. How just a very slight alteration of its shape of your nose for example can take your own face away so It was that and also mammal in life had big ears so he added you know size of my ears in my ear lobes. In the night. I curl my hair and made it all frizzy and ron came over because he just lives over the border in connecticut and he was kind of he was convinced because it i of course you know you worry about the time taken in the chair in the morning with any kind of percents but this was actually you know just slight difference of the nose and ears in it. I i was reading an hour every day But that was the beginning. And i we were given a portrait of mammoth fabulous portrait for slightly looking up with the big glasses and her hair and that was kind of what we went on. And then eventually saw videos from the family of her inaction laughing surrounded by kids pulling a wagon and then i the thing that was most valuable for me was to have one on one with bev with lindsay with a cousin with jd. And just saying okay. How did she sit. What did she wear. How did she hold her cigarette What was her voice like what. What was your energy like when she came into a room. What was her house like. So just very specific things not to pretend i was her but to somehow find the essence of this woman. Who is just. I mean loved feared feared and loved. When you get a property like this. I mean let's start by that. How did it come to you. He'll billy allergy. Who showed it to you. I said well. To tell you the truth. I read the book you know. Not long after came out because i wanted to educate myself kennedy. Was it her. She made the wonderful wonderful documentary about the hill. People that i remember vividly. But that was more like the shacks in the moonshine. And that's kind of the cliche and cliches are uninteresting. And i think cliche can lead to people being stigmatized and i think this group of people have been stigmatized. And then i heard that ron was had gotten the rights was developing the script and i wrote him a note and i said when you're thinking of memo please think of me thinking never in a million years would you. Because it's not like casting that you would necessarily leaked to. But then he got exciting for. You is the best thing about exciting new territory. And that's the essence of what we do right. I mean we were. We explore the human condition. And you don't want to go over territories spiritual emotional psychological that you've done before and so this was a great great journey for me to to learn about mammo to meet her family. I really believe i. It's just a fact that all great drama is based in family and you tell a very specific story about family and it has repercussions for everyone matter who they are and and that to me is the value of making it authentic and honest because then people can say they they almost subliminally will link it to their own lives. I heard that you met her son. Oh yes yes. He came settled. So what did he say when he's looking at you playing her and in a way reproducing this woman who's gone now he couldn't believe it. I mean the thing when the family and they came later when we were like a bunch of them came on on the day that i shooting the scene with little jd when he's I've told that he has to give his p to his mother and they came onset set. We're we're on a location. And some of them started crying. They somehow whatever we found was the mammal that they remembered and her son came came in another scene and he had to leave because he got so emotional. So that was really gratifying. I think we wanted to do justice. And we wanted to in way carry on the legacy of mammal. I women all over the world who are mammals you know. Always a yankee game sat next to a grandmother and grandfather. Taking care of their ten year old grandson. And i think he'd oh my god no retirement for them. I said their daughter was unable to take care of them so they were raising their grandson and it happens a lot in this country that know. We see every time we turn around to do that. And i say from the specific comes the universal to do that. But i think it's going to have an effect watching this movie now because all of us many of us even if we're lucky enough to live in some kind of bubble where we have. Some family members with us isn't going to be a thanksgiving where we can all get together in large kind of group. it's just impossible with this pandemic. How are you living with. Pandemic there in montana. We'll see interesting. Because i've not achieved as much creatively as i wanted. I wanted to really really right. Haven't and i'm not sure why not be. I think it's brought a kind of sometimes. I feel like. I'm spinning my tires. You know in in the mud and not getting a traction. And but i make sure my sink is clean all the time. My kitchen isn't border. You know i make i will. Do i think that every day going. After the i kind of the little things to keep my life in order that have been important but he things are building. I think i would like to think that a great great era of creativity for for all of us who are in the are artists will come out of this. Whether is you know something's just stating whether you're aware of it or not. But it's there it's going to happen
The Denisovans Expand Their Range Into China
"Like modern humans than neanderthals roamed widely throughout europe. We know this because they left behind. Extensive evidence usually bones or tools but their cousins. The denisovans our more mysterious until recently they were conclusively linked only to a single cave in southern siberia called denisova cave which lies between kazakhstan and mongolia in that cave. Scientists had found a finger bone three teeth and piece of skull which tip them off to the existence of a whole new lineage of ancient human now scientists have uncovered more of the range for the denisovans says de endo mossy lonnie of the max planck institute in germany. His team turned up evidence. The ancient humans occupied a high mountain cave on the tibetan plateau. Called by shia cave belongs to monks and -mongst things that it's a very holy place in fact among found a piece of jawbone there in nineteen eighty which has been tenuously linked to the denisovans salani and his team have now unearthed more conclusive evidence by sifting through cave sediments and sequencing the genetic evidence. The denisovans left behind. Buddy decay of people chests. Gabbing down the side like bleeding. There are coping ping could left their dna. The dna appears in layers suggesting the denisovans inhabited the cave as far back as one hundred thousand years ago as well as at sixty thousand years ago and perhaps even as recently as forty five thousand years ago meaning. The denisovans might overlapped in this region with modern humans. The results appear in the journal. Science mossy lonnie says. This method could enable more denise in detective work to this like so many caves when we have evidence of human activity but we don't have opening remain so if he can exploit to sediment can actually start to track down in segment. The denisova dini denise evans live on today in the genomes of some modern day humans from the south pacific further. Genetic work like this might give scientists more clues where early homo sapiens. I met and mixed with the elusive denisovans.
Britney Spears' Ex-Husband Wants Her Back
"Events daily pop. Hey remember when Britney Spears married Jason Alexander for just fifty five hours. Well, he wants her back now. Yes. They're right. Jason was spotted at a free privy protests at the courthouse yesterday he told us weekly. He still has love for Britney and he'd quote definitely the open rekindling their romance quote if they would give us an honest chance. Is he serious right now old what is furious? Is this heat in? Los. Angeles put that photo backup with the orange shirts. I can see that under boop sweat real quick. You know how hot it is in this Place look at. That alone. Look better though. Her he looks good. But I just like what is this guy I mean he clearly has nothing going on like the fact that he's GonNa show up even just give us weekly any sort of exclusively come on. This was how many years ago twelve thirty claims that two thousand four was when this fifty five, our wedding are. happened. They were childhood friends they got married very briefly. Now they've been I think in touch a little bit throughout the years I doubt recently my goodness. So the things he had to say about Sam you guys San has to be so livid right now. Right. So he said I got to see this code and he said I don't know him. He looks like he's in good shape but I'm in good shape. So Bravo to him she's got some type of feelings for him I. Guess I'm like Oh, my Gosh San if he ever sees you, he's going to punch you in the face. He's never gonNA. See Him this guy ever not a factor in her life, and this is the problem. What happens is even though he went there with good intentions quote unquote this just makes everything that Brittany's fighting for a spectacle and it makes it joke and if he really loved her and really wanted to be a part of her life and really wanted to help her, he would have stayed away from that camera and not became this headline. One hundred percent, and also for him to be like if they gave us an honest chance, she doesn't want you like I. Don't know who they. Does not she has no interest in rekindling your relationship I. Promise you that I don't know where he gets off thinking. Oh, if they just would just believe in our love like she's not petitioning for you bro at all, she's not looking for you in any day. Ever Gosh tell it like it is mortgage. Ed I love the. If a man sit outside like that for me I would feel some type of way about it in the. Sweat It's always flattering, right? It's always flattering to see. Talk about how he wants you back I. Mean it's Nice to hear whether you care or not of. The protest was held at the courthouse because there was a hearing about getting Brittany's data removed as conservative as we told, you yesterday according to court documents I'm really wants her care manager Jody Montgomery to step in permanently. So Jason has thoughts on that to telling US weekly Britney doesn't want to be under the conservative ship and he wants her to get what she rightly deserves. So how does he? Oh, how does he know he has not been in contact with her is will be. Governed from ghost talking to this man talent him where Britney saying he has no idea and Britney has said exactly what she wants and this for him. This was kind of a bold move because this hearing wasn't about changing anything this hearing was about let's check in. Let's see what's happening. The real hearing will come once they file papers and once she puts in court writings that she wants this change. This guy's making it worse for her get off her bag they offer not it's just. Weird. Do you think the intention because he wants Brittany back or he wants his own fame or he just was truly going there out of love for Brittany, and truly feels that she feels trapped and was trying to be a voice for her? What do you think I can't believe this I can't believe this is our Abe. Block. Are you kidding he therapy for fifteen minutes and it's going to be four because this is the last time we're talking about this. This is insane person. We have not heard one word about this person in sixteen years six I'm too hot over this. Crazy. You'll get the fifty. He'll get the fifty because what will happen is Cara Delevingne will see him on the news noticing that he's getting airtime. So then she'll date him to make Ashley Benson Jealous, and then he'll get twenty minutes. Oh my God. We're bringing car delving into this way. Okay. Well, let's move onto a couple that we've also talked about a couple of times before. New Year. So Tomorrow Laurie Lachlan and her husband Massimo are scheduled to be sitting for their roles in the college admissions gets scandal at the same time. The government's recently filed sentencing memo raises questions about what their daughter Olivia Jade may have known. So here's the new stuff. You guys. So Libya is never mentioned by name in the document, but they're quote. Younger. Daughter is referred to specifically prosecutors say in one incident Laurie Mossy Ma and they're quote younger daughter discussed how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme. So the family has not spoken out, but a source close to the family says their daughters had nothing to do with this. So if what the prosecutors are saying is true. That Olivia Jay did know about this do you feel she should be punished as well as her parents? Here She did no I just hello even if she knew or did not know she is a child and was a minor at this point in her life. That age you do as your parents tell you to do you follow suit you. You'd even realize the difference between right and wrong I could barely drive through MC. At that point by myself, give me a break. There's no reason that this young girl should be punished for anything like I understand her parents made a mistake we've been talking about it when I was reading the research is warning I was like for over a year literally been talking about this now for over a year and it's dwindled down to two or three months and five months number one. The she was seventeen. Leave her out of it. It's not relevant for her to be involved with the fact that their names are mentioned I get it. They need to be to kind of paint a full picture you do what your parents, how you to do. This is how we're getting into college. Sweetie you go. Okay. Mom just let me know where I need to be et Cetera not true Morgan you do what your parents tell you to do but let's say let's say you've got some awful parents right? Like I'm not saying these people are saying you got some awful parents and they say honey were broke I want you to go steal some milk and some candy bars and some cereal, and you know what? Go ahead and grab that xbox to they won't even suspect you. You're a teenager just go do it. Okay. If they get caught that could go to Juvie or get some sort of legal. Question. So Matt Your question. Your mother. Makes you sign your name on legal documents that puts you as a as the lender on alone and your mother then defaults on it ten years later should be. Held Liable Harris of thousand dollar loan that your mother made you sign for when you're seventeen or would you fight it? Well that's different because you would never have hypothetical situation that happened in. Dollar Loan. Drill, trust. It happens on sweet bitter. I just saw show where it happened. So where do you bring up that example? I agree with Morgan when you're seventeen years old if my mother would have told me sign the papers for this D to my kidney I wouldn't have asked two questions about it because my mother told me. But my problem is. This is the problem my judicial system we're sitting here worried about what a seventeen year old may or may not have known meanwhile Brianna Taylor's killers walking around free and the people who accosted Eliza McLean have not been nothing has been done to them. We know exactly what happened. We've seen the camera footage we've gone through everything. Why are we focusing on this and not focusing on what we do know?
"Now. You. Are Getting Ready. To embark on a journey. Because forgiveness isn't something that just happens. Instantly you decide. Okay I want to forgive so I'm going to forgive. Someone or you're going to forgive yourself. It's usually a process. But getting started as with. Just, about anything is often the hardest part. So. Make. A. Choice. At this moment. To begin that process that doesn't mean you necessarily have to forgive someone this week, but it just means that you have begun to have more compassion. And that you are no longer leading something have power and control over you the way animosity or holding a garage. Can have, it can wreak havoc on your life in fact you can become. Bound to it. So, this will be a week of setting yourself free. Now, each meditative technique, this week is customized to give you a sense of freedom and relief. So you'll start off today by visualizing and then tomorrow you will discover an affirmation the next day, a breeding techniques, and then a mood rather next day and a chalk refocus the next day you'll layer everything together. In Friday of the series that will actually be day six just depending on when you join us in this series and then you will ended with a final meditation on. Saturday. So I always begin a meditation series on Sunday although you can listen to these in any order you want. So we are at day one whatever day that is for you. So as you get ready to settle yourself down and meditate know that you also have a challenge. I always issue you a challenge at the beginning of a weekly series. Your challenge is to just as I mentioned. Began to take the first step towards forgiveness by doing something each day. To. Release yourself from harboring Atta, Mossy, holding grudges, and resentments. So you could focus maybe. On forgiving one person. Or forgiving yourself. You could even. For one day, simply focus on. Feeling compassion. For that person. Or for yourself. Another. Day. You might think about. Sending. Some gratitude for the lessons you've learned. For going through the experience of really holding onto a garage. Letting go of that. If you even focus each day on feeling compassion for this person or for yourself. You will notice. A sense of freedom. Inner, freedom the best kind. So. Sit Up straight as you get ready to do a meditation. And, closure is. Keeping them slightly elevated upward. Began to. Relax your. Body. and. Notice. Where you feel in your body. Any kind of. Animosity or Resentment towards somewhat or Torture Yourself. You might feel a sense of shame about something in your life. Notice. If you hold this feeling in your body. Now, visualize this person that you're going to choose differ gaffe. You might not really even feel like forgiving that person but you know that you should do this. It's been long enough. It's time to release. So visualize this person. Think of some aspect of compassion towards this person. Could even visualize yourself.
Peter Smith - Coach of Steve Johnson & Sam Querrey
"Hype Peter Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Well, I mean you're the man when it comes to all this stuff Bobbio, so it's my pleasure to be on and. You know excited to chat with you and to be on the PODCAST I. Don't know fun demand. Tobin winning matches I'm not sure what what help I have help and play with matches. That's where you've carved your career, so I'm really excited to have you on an ever. Since was a Brett Mossy was on here. He was like you gotta get Peter on. You GotTa get Peter on, so it's taken probably thirty episodes all probably down to me because you said, get me on any time so I'm glad to finally have yawn like I, said it's a pleasure so. Hopefully I can I can say something that helps someone or that's worth listening to. I'm sure you can't so. Let's start first of all. Which Your College tennis success. How many years were you head? COACH USC I was a head coach at USC for seventeen years. I was the head coach in college. For thirty two years. I coached at long, beach state where I played Fresno State Pepper, nine and University of Southern California so all within California's sports. And so you know was was real honor to coach at all four of those universities. Was dateable stint up to be a fresno state when you were there. No, he was after he was after but I I know Dave. Yeah, I certainly I think. He played for Oh God man. Oh, A now, Fresno! No, he's at Fresno Fresno Yep. No He's black working for. Integrate call the lucky. Yeah, no, it's too lucky and you know I mean a little bit about me that you don't know is. My Dad was born and raised in Kevin County so I'm A. I'm very much Irish. Yeah, so That's an never been airland means crazy I was born in Rome mid late and I left her nose two weeks old, and I've never been back and I'm Irish are fifty percents I was there when I was very young. Know I've traveled the world, but I've never been to those two places. You probably meant to be at Rome with Steve. This year. And maybe still happen. We don't know so. We'll see what what the future holds. I really hope the tour can start up with Washington, and they can put this the correct safety protocols in place her, and really for the most part. Just get everyone back working because it's this huge industry. That supports lot of different people, and you know not only the players, but you know the TV crews in the tournament organizers and you know so many people involved in running the kind of tournaments they play. Definitely a lot of people are on the sidelines. Waiting for things to pick up with a wasn't a plan to touch on this subject in this interview which you would. What is your thoughts on term star embark on hold procedures that are in place, player team sizes, and what's happened in Croatia, wit Novak, and now the case in the states as well with Francis Ooh. What are your general thoughts on? I think you know this. A lot of sports are starting up I. Think it can be done if you put this correct safety procedures in place, you know I'm not gonNA comment on. On what happened, you know over in in Europe but I know Atlanta. They put a lot of safety precautions in place, but you know still. They learned a lot. We learned a lot from you know what happened in. Serbia and I think they've learned even more with Atlanta. I think the mistake they made in Atlanta was. They tested all the guys? Guys, but they didn't test them the day before so obviously. Francis did not get covid from the tournament because it happened on the first day, It just doesn't happen that quickly, so he had been tested i. think a week before, and so you know they just need to test I. Don't know if it's daily, but they should definitely test everyone. When they arrived to the tournament and but other than that. You Walk Away I. Mean I think it's A. It's actually a great lesson that someone had code and we'll see, but it appears. At this point, and maybe it's too early. Say that no one else got it also so. If no one else gets covid I think that's a victory that they had some in there that had it and it didn't spread. So again, it's probably too early to save for sure, but I know. Stephen Sam have been tested repeatedly since that day last Friday and again it's too early to say for sure, but so far they've they've tested negative, and so has everybody all the participants
The Distraction of Technology & How To Live In The Moment
"Olinda by Josie Michelle Davis of Josie. Michele Davis DOT COM. Hiking through the rain forest can be a magical thing. The lush greenery all around the far off sounds of bird. You've only ever seen in a zoo chatting with one another the light ray on your face, and the deep smell of Mossy rocks. Was Not so magical is getting stuck in a downpour under a lean to with a woman named Linda who insists on calling everyone. She's ever met and loudly talking to them about how her arthritis is putting a bit of a damper on her dating life. I don't mind rain for few minutes million and stood together under the lean to watching the rainfall with only the steady beats of drops falling around us.

My husband's arms wrapped around me watching the rain until it slowed. And then Linda came I'll standing on the edge of the lean to looking down the hill, when a middle aged woman came towards me, waving frantically and yelling. I found.

Linda was not hindered by us, not budding up to her, though even though we were thousands of feet up the side of a mountain, she somehow had the teeny tiniest bit of reception on her cell phone, which made it possible for her to voice to text. Leave rambling voicemails and call everyone she's ever met. We heard all about her date that presumably had abandoned her and left her for dead in a Puerto Rican rainforest. We heard about how she was aggressively trying to get a CO worker to spend more time with her. Despite this woman spurring her advances, her words by the way, and we heard her lament about how tough dating is when you have arthritis in your hands. It was awkward to say the least after five minutes that felt more like an hour. We decided to venture into the pouring rain and hike as swiftly as we could down the mountain in fear that Linda might catch up to us, and we would be forced to listen to more phone calls and dictated text messages. I couldn't help but think how incredible it is that you would hike through the rainforest in still be unable to put your phone down and enjoy what's around you, but if I'm totally honest with myself, I do that, too sure. I don't make phone calls unless absolutely necessary. Why can't doctors just text you anyway? And I certainly am not going to voice to text in public when my hands are perfectly free. I mean come on guys. Why even bother texting at that point, but I'm sure way more often than I realize I'm standing somewhere amazing and beautiful. Too Busy scrolling through Instagram to even notice. I'm not someone who thinks technology is evil, quite the opposite in fact I have no desire to get rid of my iphone or live in some remote cabin without Internet I think all of that stuff is awesome. Actually I believe instagram has truly pushed me creatively. I love that I can check out an e book or Audio Book for my library and read it right on my phone. Heck without the Internet and aim I wouldn't have had half my boyfriend's. The real question is am I able to disconnect when real life calls am I able to put down my phone and enjoy the sound of rain in the actual rainforest when his right there in front of me. I really hope so, but maybe Linda was there to remind me to pay attention and not miss out on what's happening. So thanks Linda I really. We'll try to be more present this year, and also we'll try my best to avoid arthritis by whatever means necessary.
The Distraction of Technology & How To Live In The Moment
"Olinda by Josie Michelle Davis of Josie. Michele Davis DOT COM. Hiking through the rain forest can be a magical thing. The lush greenery all around the far off sounds of bird. You've only ever seen in a zoo chatting with one another the light ray on your face, and the deep smell of Mossy rocks. Was Not so magical is getting stuck in a downpour under a lean to with a woman named Linda who insists on calling everyone.

"And I just like all the poem and I started. I remember saying by two people the Friday before we got our official like work from poem recommendation on Tuesday. But I didn't go in on that Monday because I was like yeah guys. I don't think it's the responsible at this point and that Friday before I remember seeing Saint Pete for like a month like I care if I told you this last time as 'cause I taught my last class on the Tuesday before it was actually like it was because they told us like basically everything shutdown that evening. The latte lives like not last Tuesday but the Tuesday before and so like I taught my last class that afternoon and I just like I was like. I'm not gonNA see your for awhile so you know. I guess this is goodbye. You know like yeah. It was like it was super weird kind of sad. We're they prepare for that or where people still skeptical. I think people were more or less. They were they feel. I figured it was going to happen. It's just a question of win but nobody knew it was gonna be like that night. Only the professors knew nobody knew it was like the president said the email that night of the university. But you like anticipated it. I just figured it was coming. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That was yeah. I just had a funny feeling in my stomach that this is going to happen so that is exactly how. Yeah and I. I have a coworker. Who's like the eternal optimist? I don't think it's GonNa get that bad. I was like now it is like that's like the one thing actually. I can offer. People is like the confident expert. And again I don't actually think I've an expert but I do think I have expertise knowing who to listen to based on going to school public health and like yeah like just being like confidently people like that like. No you're wrong it's GONNA get bad like this is non doesn't irrefutable. Like with my dad too. He was like I think people were in like hurricane mentality where it's like. Oh maybe it'll hit. Maybe it will. And it's like no it's GonNa hit no. There's no scenario that doesn't happen. The only question is like how well can we handle it and how well could we space out the ER visits? But I think for most people the mental model for pandemic. Wasn't there. Well I mean to be fair like there's nothing to compare it to well. Yeah why would it be? And that's where I'd like. My training gives me the expertise. Because it's just like I was around enough epidemiologist to understand like how it looked. You know. Yeah well also I was talking to someone else about this how I think the the nature of like infectious disease. The field of infectious disease is that I feel like it's kind of like it happens somewhere else. You know And I think so. It's just like there are kind of it. Seems the topic. Seems a little distant and even with like you know the measles vaccination type stuff like like measles who gets that right. You Know Brown. Yeah they're already been outbreak looking at a little outbreaks United States. And it's like but it's like that's it seems very distant It seems like something that only happens in other countries. I think you're right that if I hadn't gone to Hopkins I would probably be in that mentality of Lake just to kind of opt in like there's only so much you can pay attention to as a human like often too and so something feels far away you might not opt into it and I don't know if I would ever die but because I had to take like epidemiology class and like you know was around epidemiologists ally because like BIOS Eddie. -nology interact more than most of the other public health fields At least in that school so it was like I like like you know already like done the equations you know. It's just like I was familiar with it and so I just opted into knowing about it because I kind of had to. Yeah but yeah. I agree at academia if you look across even just the school public health like it's not like everybody's working on infectious disease and it's like actually it's like you know what it comes down to everybody's working on chronic disease. We're trying to cure cancer and heart disease you know. And that's where a lot of the money for researches and it's like the infectious disease there's different people working on it and they're super busy right now but it's not quite at this level like cancer for example. Yeah you're right like probably even most people there like everyone's required to take bias that class at the school public health at least for most of the degrees but not epidemiology. I assume I don't know if it's a requirement but I think basically everyone takes a level one epidemiology class. Okay did you didn't you? Did I think pretty budget and I learned a lot. It's like yeah. I mean now that I think about it that problem when I say like oh I have the training like that was like the crash course so that I understood the modeling. And kinda just build the gut intuition in that for like a a small number like you'd build a gut intuition for what exponential growth looks like in that scenario and like what interventions matter like are are are not are zero or Yeah and so. It's like yeah you learn that stuff and then But then yeah I just like Nick Reich was in my office and he worked on flu type stuff and so I remember one time being like I think I got the flu or and he was like incubation teams. This like it'd be very unlikely. Have A so. It's just like I have like exposure like that from experts to lay. No what was the conversation. Sounds like when it's going right? You know what I mean so you have a quite a different reference than most the average person does. Yeah and it's I feel lucky 'cause I never I didn't go to Grad school wedding to go into public health. That just like happened and 'cause I was interested in stats and bio stats is like a big part of the stats world. And so I got into Hopkins and decided to go there. You know so. It wasn't like I had a ton of interest in this field is how I actually learned time like. I didn't even think I totally under so much public health wise. I think that's one of the struggles that we have Gerald. Yeah right yeah like in bias that or just at the school the school you know. It's like yeah I remember. I was part of a scholarship program and like everyone else was so passionate about public health and I was just like to do to do. I like math and we like we met Bloomberg like we want you ever like had really good sharp suits and was like you know I remember people we kind of went around the circle like introducing ourselves and I just wanted to like ham it up like he was pretty like Hammy like he just wanted to delay like you didn't tell he just kind of wanted to lay be politician. Rub elbows and stuff but Other people were like this is my chance for my elevator pitch you know and I just remember being like wow. I don't even know what I would pitch it. Just so out of my element are exactly the same that I would have close by where. Yeah it's that you care about public like you like. Did you always know you want to go into pollution? No no definitely not I mean so first of all like I didn't do is to six. Remember that right so I just did like st statistics which was like almost all math. Right so I just have by happenstance. Kinda came to the school to do a post doc. I don't know anything about public health either so I took. I took the epidemiology one class that you took. It was the same one. I don't know anything about that. I do feel like in our last moments of the podcast. I do think that gets a not reported on and talk about that a lot. That like you can develop passion for something like you don't have to have cared about it since childhood. Definitely not a five hundred applications interesting and the more you work on the more interested you get man you know you develop passionate doesn't come from nowhere like is this kind of time exposure. Yeah and also just for me. It's just like talking to other people who are already at that point. You know what I mean. It's like just hearing them say what's interesting and why it's interesting and whatever totally. Yeah I agree and so yeah I feel like one thing that will be interesting from this. Is that feeling in the next generations. So many more people have exposure to public health. That I feel like it's going to be transformative. In terms of who decides they want a career in it and like the reason. Why you know like like kids'll be growing up like wow like it's like just people will know about it like in a way they didn't before. Yeah I mean hopefully I mean I mean that for like Society League because I work at a school of public health but I feel confident that will happen. There's just no way of like have apple deem allergists or like little mini celebrities. Now like you know. It's just like kids we'll see people on TV and be like. I WanNa be like that person. Yeah Yeah. Maybe I'm too confident in that but I just feel yeah. We'll we'll see. I feel like the world's memory has gotten shorter in general but yeah anyway point How we'RE DOING. We're looking like an hour or so it. Yeah I feel like that's the show. Mostly just personal updates yeah okay..

"Data analysis the corona virus kind of outbreak. Which maybe I've been. I feel like I've been a little too negative about it on twitter. It's just I mean. It's just easy to be negative right now especially on twitter. Yeah but there's like there is something about Dui not that I don't love like it's almost like the psychology of doing it. I don't love where it's like. Not Trusting experts. And what are you seeking from this analysis like? Are you seeking some version of like emotional reassurance? 'cause like that's not here like you shouldn't want that right now. 'cause like there is a lot of uncertainty and this is a disaster like like. Are you looking to the data analysis to tell you that? It's not a disaster. You know what I mean. I think in this case I think the situation as difficult for many reasons I think one of those. Because it's like there's nothing there's very little active to do you know And I think that people want to feel like they're doing something you know it's like so yes I think what you're saying is right like your kind of people feel like the answer is. There's going to be something that is discovered that is like the solves the problem or something like that. Yeah yeah well and also I guess like I think as a human it would be better to like sit without discomfort you know and like like emotionally learned from it rather than spin your wheels on data analysis right. Yeah like that's that will add your suffering more like keeping yourself busy so yeah I guess backing up like the complaint I have about it in. General is but like this a like this is like a very difficult data science problem to solve because the data the missing not at random situation and lie. You know there wasn't enough testing so it's kind of like the numbers are getting are kind of useless because you can't necessarily like control for like who you won't know as a layperson and like who what is the rationale of. Who's tested and all these various data points? And like it's also like the state is changing and also there's like epidemiologists who are used to analyzing this type of data who you can look to and then also to me. The answer was never on the data analysis. The answer of like. How bad is this going to be was like looking at other countries and then looking at our response and being like Yup our response is on par with Italy not on par with South Korea. And so that's that that answers the question and like this is going to happen and prepare for it so to me. I just haven't even been looking at numbers at all. Basically neither of I I I mean that's not to say that like data is important. It's not important to us. It's like that no decision. I should be making decisions. Based on data I should be making decisions based on public health. Experts should not be making decisions based on certain government officials. But I think there is a need. Obviously there is a need for data and information about what is going on at the highest levels. Exactly Yeah for sure. And then as epidemiologists and public health experts are being consulted in some parts of the government. Yeah they're doing the best they can. They're doing the best they can. I feel like where my training is. Most helpful is knowing who to listen to you. That's I think we talked about that in the last podcast to but my brother was like boy away by the fact that I was like I told him he he like. I texted him. He was like planning on a trip in like April and I was like. That's not happening. And he's asking. Why said that and I just. I texted something like in two weeks. Things are going to look really different than today and then two weeks later he was like. Wow my sister her. Phd In biased early. She called this and I was like. I'm just saying that. Other people said on twitter like I did the analysis and figuring out. It's just that it happened. Like I also knew who was saying the right things versus who was just contributing noise. And that's huge right now yeah I think it's it's. It's huge erred. Now I think it's it's important in general it's important in general but right now. It's like like slopes tweeted out recently just like we can't keep up with a number of things that we need to be investigating. Oh No I think that was true before I mean they. Just keep it general. Now there's too many things. I mean slopes predated social media right. I mean he's a kid point so like they're just not geared up for this kind of onslaught. Yeah so it's like so sad like the people who died from the how do you even? I don't even know how to pronounce it like clerk oil or something. Yeah the people who died from chloroquine poisoning. Its own like Dodge Awful. And if you just have leaders who are. Like kind of like co pass like not exactly sociopaths. I don't think but just like able to enter a mental state where other people like like where they internally have the plausible deniability that wasn't there fall wrote and like yeah like the stuff unfolding in New York is so awful. It's just like you can't even like having a leader who's like they weren't nice to me. So yeah that's fine. It's just like Oh my God like Your Dad's sociopath but I think it is like just being able to disconnect like I do think chump leg cares a lot about what people think of him but he's disabled to like disconnect from a bunch of it. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean anyway. Yeah depressing. We can hang our hats on the whole that. Tony Good Tony Voucher. You'll be able to hang on there. I now I know I. The thing I don't get is like. How are these people not getting sick? I don't know I guess just this morning. Prince Charles the new like there's this at Prince Charles got saying. Can you imagine if the Queen Got Sick? Well I mean I've got I don't think quite ninety seven ninety ninety something though right yeah. She's in her ninety dollars. Sure I thought she was more like ninety three. Okay all right well. It's a big difference. At this point. The Queen could be anything right but yeah yeah man it. Oh yeah well that's the thing I'm just like do. These people have access to like like I mean they just must be getting like top notch healthcare. You know what I mean like the Queen. Yeah like the clean all the leaders and I think this this paper. I read about the ethics of who give care to like. There's a big part of it is like who's giving care to other people so like healthcare workers are prioritized in terms of who gets access to Vanna leaders and things like that which I think is appropriate. Because they're like well. This is a way of maximizing the life years that are saved with one like ventilation session. Because I'm that person who'd gone to and so I feel like you could put leaders into that category to some degree because it's like well like losing leadership could cause chaos that will kill people so keeping leaders healthy is like a way of extending the most number of life years of life. Years is the right way putting it. I think that's the term so but it's just like how are these like older people like Duino. Okay right now I guess Prince Charles the six. That's the exception to your. It's like it's GonNa come along eventually I I. There's a part of me. That's curious about like why? Why would you know trump receive if he got sick like there's got to be like a super special like here's how we keep the President Alive? I'm sure the I guess it's the Navy or whatever that takes care of his health care. It's protocol there but Yeah well you know you got people in the Senate now so it's not like a yeah those people Turner's Congress ucare. Now just kidding. I'm a dozen. No I mean yeah. That would be a disaster. I mean Yeah Losing Leader of Oh my God. It's terrible. It was going to say the answer to my question of whether there's any relevant data science to talk about is no only. Don't take a break for a while. I mean I think people are having such trouble focusing. Which is I mean. Been True for me although in different way I don't know in some ways not I mean not nearly as much as for people with kids at home and everything and then like I said I feel like I mean I feel like the mindfulness practice has helped a ton and then you know the fact that I don't feel immediately threatened has helped time so it's like yeah I in some ways. I'm actually still doing science at work but It is just yeah. It's a crazy time right now. I'm not reading a lot of lay person data science stuff right now. I did have one reminder that the world does move on who does that. I had a paper rejected the other day. That's foolish not everything has ground to a halt. Yeah I did. Oh my God is Michael Eisen is that his name. Some of that Berkeley was tweeting about. Like P is who are telling their like Ra's and students to still come in So like the lab and that made me think all the terrible think about academia whereas just like these narcissists professors like. It's so wrong to ask people to come into the loudly. I get that it's going to hurt your career but also kind of not because I've grown understands like I know. That's not all academics. But I also know that. A subset of academic subset of people. Are that way that professors have so much. Control like like students can be so vulnerable to their professors and that just made me so livid yeah well yeah that must have been a little while ago. You couldn't do that now. I mean I'm not sure I it was. I can't even get. They won't let you in the building. Oh really wow you the building unless you're doing Kobe. Nineteen research now. Wow yeah that's a good point so maybe like the lockdowns getting more serious. I don't think I could get into the building for a week now. Basically so wow. That's okay 'cause I was wondering when you're like I can't get the Dogle as like. Yeah can't you just go? All you need is office including but did not letting people in just take everything home you know. I thought I did but forgot. It's always the sub dog. All right. Yeah that's true. I have another thing is is that I have stuff that I can't find like still have stuff. I mean I feel like I haven't officially unpacked in seven years. You know we still have stuff from like when I moved to New York late. It's just it's not like I've ever been in a place long enough to be like I really settled play. That'll be true though it's never true. Yeah and like I feel terrible. 'cause I actually think I have a half pack of ninety five masks from the last Blast Wildfire Before I got my reusable and but I I can't find them and I'm like Oh. Did I leave them in my last play like I really thought I pack them but I I was like I need to prioritize this weekend? Just like stopping everything and looking for them so. I can donate them? You think. They're like in a box somewhere. I think a box somewhere and I don't know which one how is it that you have all this storage space for these boxes? Like where does that building? I have some in the basement. I see okay. Yeah and then I just. I'm not I'm like I'm like an all or nothing organizers folks when I knew bins with like stuff thrown in. It's not like oh kitchen stuff. It's just like chaos in those bins. So I have to like pull out literally everything in dig through and I and I don't even know for sure I have like I'm like ninety percent sure but I've also looked for them enough that I'm like do I have them like or did I leave them with someone. I don't remember so. Yeah but the dog will situation for me is like that where I know. I have a nice song bill somewhere but I'm having to make do with like worst ongole's you know but I took. Apparently I was listening to Wall Street Journal that I really liked their morning briefing an afternoon briefing. If if you have a smart speaker you can play their morning briefing and they also tech news briefing. I think it was in that where They were talking about. How places like Google? It just looks like they got ransacked like when people got the work from home saying they took lake everything snacks. They took their monitors. Like it's like people were going in at night grabbing stuff as just like it man they get it bleak. I don't think that happened yeah. I'm not sure that happened for but yeah it didn't happen citrus. Because I've been in since I work from home and like it looks okay but and they also asked us not to monitor Luca Place. Yeah exactly I did pregnant home all my plans to swiftly. We had we kind of had like a communal team plant area..

"Sorry to captivate me and there and I wanted one that was really big lake to cover basically the whole wall so I it was like weary. I was like live texting. You like this idea. Came upon me to like make it myself and then I had to do. It was like that day. It's like at the hardware store. Yeah I was getting pictures of like raw material and so I I I thought I would buy some like audio meeting material and pays like glue Preserve combined preserved moths. It's like it's like very clearly moss. That was just harvested like. They're still like twigs. Bark and stuff is hatch dirt but they kind of just like dip it in I think like glycerine or like they dip it in something that Lake preserves. I think they diet usually or do you enhance the color. And then you can buy it in like these sheets or bundles. Or whatever like packets sidebar. I found like a wholesaler on FC. I bought a bunch and then I bought. I talked to the hardware personal lot and finally decided on a very thin piece of plywood is like six feet by four feet And I and then some cork like that thin sheets of Cork so and then a hot glue gun which I never owned before the voice. You're ready to build. Yeah Yeah and then I have also this like new die. I don't like a dive at like a Finnish that I was really into a friend suggested is called Rubio Monaco is calling can oily natural finish. You can use Like anyway so I have a bunch of samples of it because I I like went nuts on it and like like refinish like my. I have kind of like this bar thing like a coffee bar so anyway I was like already going nuts with it and I was like. Ooh I could use that so I kind of like sanded down the pilot and applied this on the edges. So high looks like a frame and then like glued the Cork on top of it and then glued the Moss on the cork. And so now. I have this like ridiculous. Six foot like Moss Y.`all as my backdrop. Can you send me a good picture of that? I can make it like the art for the pod like this show art for the podcast player and some people can see her. Yes I will absolutely signed my well. I'm not done with 'cause I bought like a bunch of preserved flowers to lay. I did a lot of research. I feel like such a jerk. Who's the League went? I'd see people hate that. I liked it a lot research on about design. I decided I like the ones where I don't want like fakes. I don't plastic. But I wanted like Moss and then stuff on top of the Moslem either GonNa be like just one color moss like really uniform or like intricate side and so I decided to go with the design stuff so I have like a whole box of different flowers and I'm gonna like like taking flowers taking pictures of flowers. That like the park to see how they like. Look like like make a field of wildflowers behind me not feel like I wanna like artfully enhance anyway. So that's a very long winded. I've I have one side. That's like actually audio muting. And then behind me I have something that like also dampened sound. Oh and I also by a Japanese Ali. I don't know. Do you know what that is. It's got like a decorative belt. I had to say the market for Japanese Kimono and OBI and stuff is like really good because I think in Japan like if you Japan you can buy like a silk amount over one hundred dollars which is not how much they are. A used. One like new ones are expensive. But the ones I think. There's just a lot around. Like like the spirituality of objects refusal don't WanNa like by US Komo knows it okay and so you can actually get it for cheap. So then I also bought this like long decorative. Ob On at sea Like a use. When have that? Hey so it's like there's less soft stuff on my walls now. I have real material where it matters. Most. And then I have like decorative material that probably helps tiny amount. Every sound doesn't stand a chance in your office now is dead on arrival although it's still is better in my walk in closet. That's what I'm using the other room for and like there's part of me that was like yeah. I did all this but I could have just moved my podcast set of to like the closet and it would have been better just like face my wall of close but then you would have had no. Because they're like rearrange things every time you want to use your closet exactly closet to be like my special lake closet space. That's actually like a hybrid. Yeah like the whole point of having a tiny rooms was for them to like be specialized. So I'm a fan of like having separate spaces for separate activities. I mean it's such a luxury again. That's why I'm like. I'm so lucky because I know a lot of people are like working in these crazy situations and you know like there was some photos like a couple that live together in a studio and one woman was like at the next to her front door in a chair with a laundry bin as her desk. And it's like so I mean and it's like I don't know for some reason a couple years ago it was like let me really like you know professionalize my work at home space. I have worked at home once a week. And there's no reason like let me just make this look better. I have my late alien. Share which is very economically style. Like it's like my ergonomics. Setup cannot be better I got a little bit of like our Si- in my wrist like a last year couple of years ago so I like had like I consulted with someone and I got like the whole setup like pretty good so like for me. This is just couldn't be a better situation not and I'm not trying to brat just trying to be like my emotional tone is like I've aware of the fact that I have all this stuff going for me. That like many people don't so I don't want people to think that I'm like this is easy like it's just like no. No no I get that. This is not easy and I got like all the factors that may this easy for me. You know although it's worth mentioning again that like sound like you started doing this yesterday. Really you have been because you work from home regular thing right so exactly no. It was like a regular thing a lot of time to Italy. I guess what I meant to say. Yeah I interrupted a lot like it started with me on a laptop in the lobby of my building. Which because studio where at consciously was like. I don't WanNa desk like I don't want to work from home. Ever that has changed and because of that I spent like a couple years building out my gear wrote. This is the result of a years long process. Exactly yeah but having the separate spaces is the biggest. The biggest win by far like that's such a such a help that anyway I went along. I'm for like a lot. What's your what's your work from home. A by setup is well you know you're the irony. Is that like I tried to created this office? We have like an extra bedroom in our house so I just use kind of created it as like a little office because I was like. I'm going to work from home more often because I need to get certain things done and it's better to do it at home and then like irony. All the work from home is 'cause you do more work at home important. Yeah well I would say I do more. Just do certain kinds of work better at home now and but the irony there is never a never never actually did it. Yeah great he set it up like almost never used it so so now it's getting re Cleveland of signing up for a gym but never completely exactly. Yeah I was GONNA work out my mind that ever never went to the gym so anyway. I mean we're lucky because we do have an extra room but It's a it's an so for the most part it's it's fine but it's not. I wouldn't say it's I haven't put the years of research effort into it like you have so it's not like particularly Ergonomic. Yeah that's the lucky to me. That's the luckiest thing is like having an ergonomics data. I think a lot of people are in like physical pain right now. Oh yeah because if you just use regular house cheers or whatever like it's it's not good but one thing I do have. The critical is a microphone. Stand I don't worry about that to balance like podcast. Once I got the Home Office that was like the thing is most excited about microphone. Stand instead of. I used to have to take everything out. I had like my little box with all the podcast. Like Ethernet Cord Right. Set it up and I report in my living room or something. Yeah Yeah so the only problem I think and I can't remember if we recorded this but the network in that room in the house is not particularly fast. So I mean that's like that's like thing number one you have to solve that. You weren't serious exactly. I didn't even notice that the network was exactly. Yeah like how could you not noticed at my last? Home Office had terrible network situation. And that's that's what I bought the longer. Ethernet colored because as late. This is unacceptable. And I'M NOT GONNA figure out why can I can. I make one defense though. Sure What my defense is that? The kind of work that I would do at home would be one of two things usually. It's either writing papers or like doing some like very complicated data analysis which usually doesn't fall. It doesn't usually require any sort of network access. I figured that would be your defense. You reject it no. I think it's I think that's valid. You know you have like people who go to little cabins with no WIFI right. But usually I mean you as we know codeine is like half Google lean stack overflow. You weren't able to do that part. That's okay. There's enough internet like Google. It stack overflow. But they're downloading massive data. Says something like that. That'd be a problem. Yeah issue is just that yeah when I work from home. Everyone swallow have a video meeting and it wouldn't be good enough so that was like Ethernet cord immediately and that was actually learning from the podcast. You know yeah yeah I mean like. I try not to do that when I'm working from home so it's not. It doesn't usually come up but now that it's happening all the time. I have my bandwidth limitations of kind of smack me in the face anyway. Well we it's funny. I feel like this podcast but used to talk about like being with limitations all the time but now we've kind of moved away from that because we figured out how actually I was just thinking about the first time I ran into. This is actually 'cause I had like a long distance relationship and we are trying to video jab and it was going horribly. Ed like is salt fat and I learned so much. 'cause it was like no just in. New York the There's so many like packets bouncing around that even if you had a good route like I bought a new route and that didn't fix it and I tried everything and finally it was just like I just have to hard wire this like. I don't think anything's GONNA solve the. I remember like drilling a hole. There's like these bills him bookcases and I had to like drill a hole to get the power to the right spot. I felt Kinda Babbitt also like this is like a benefit like it never made sense to have an outlet in just like one cubby of this Bilton bouquets and so I remember. I bought a drill and like learned how to drill a hole totally. Get the Ethernet cord to the right spot. And his all worth it felt like a pro but anyway since then I was like the hardware person so yeah well I've learned from you is there. Do you think that any data size topic that's worth discussing? I know I was thinking about in our last twenty minutes. I mean I feel like I want. I'm not sure there's like that much interesting discussion here but I do want to address like people kind of doing their own..
"mossy" Discussed on Not So Standard Deviations
"What are you going to talk about today? Decides that Yeah Update. What is there to talk about? We talk about like the lay person epidemiologists situation. Well actually can we. I talk talk about the progress. You're off of your office. Sure Yeah We. We don't even know if you've talked about that now. I would like to go. I would like to yeah. I'm not sure. Do you WanNa talk. Do we want to do like a status update. I mean I guess we could take stuff from what we just talked about or we could like start over. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Let's do so. We can do some status updates for listeners. Okay do you want to start or should I start start together? My thoughts okay. Yeah I feel like I'm very lucky and I'm very aware of that right now so like I don't have kids and you know kind of like me and my cat in an apartment. I moved recently and I got an apartment with like separate rooms more separate rooms than usual. And they're like really tiny but as a result I have a separate office and I already had said of her podcasting. My job is secure and can be done remotely. I have a little back porch even so like my situation is a battle as as good as it could be not to say that. I've not having some cabin fever. Although we're joking like Grad School did actually prepare me for long stretches of time alot to my apartment would just my work so I actually that yeah. It's not actually that unusual. So you know by like yeah. I'm aware of how lucky I am. And I I just I feel so much for other people who are not in that situation. Also my family's healthy right now and my parents are taking it seriously. Which is really I think. That's like a big struggle for millennials. But I'm super lucky. Both my parents are taking it really seriously. So I go onto twitter in my life. Like feel twitter's like mainstream Sir aside from like you work with stretches the usually stress. Yeah Yeah it's not totally retailers like obviously likes heavily impacted by this situation so it's not just like work as usual. Work is definitely stressful. That twitter is definitely the biggest. Like I definitely have had moments where I'm on there all the time in another woman him just like I can't like a half stop. Yeah all the stresses that other people have with like kids or you know like big families or people their lives who are going out and risque like my experiencing that so. Don't worry about me. I always a real worry about me for the normal reasons like my sanity. No need for extra worry. No need for extra worry but yeah no I just I just so. It's I feel so awful like I was reading a paper last night. Just about like the decision making the hospitals are to go through like how ethically ration lifesaving care and it's like it's so easy to read that and not be emotionally affected when you're not at risk and then if you had someone you love who was sick I mean it would be infuriate. You couldn't even look at that paper. You know what I mean and I thought about tweeted out and then I just couldn't figure out how to phrase that without like being a jerk of lay if you're not at risk this is an interesting way of how will choose who lives and dies like but it is interested. It is interesting but you can kind of only engage with it. If you're very lucky you know right you just very distant from it or seemingly distant from it yeah like I can like intellectual. I don't I don't get like hooked. You know like it's not an emotional hook for me yet but I mean who knows right? I definitely worry I mean. I'm like super because I'm super vigilant. I just think that's my personality type like I feel like this year. I've had a few things happen this year. Where I've learned that I just go into like a very matter-of-fact survival mode where it's just like due to do. Here's what happens next and like this what you do in kind of like. Don't don't panic as like it's nice like I don't know it's I mean you know you never know until you're like on the battlefield but you'll actually do ya. Yeah Yeah. The only thing is that I have this like mid Western tendency to hoard western thing. Well okay I don't feel it's as I was thinking about this. How to phrase that? It's not due to worried about like I've actually mentally tried to like undo this where it's like listen. I have like Bodega nearby. I don't need to like buy in bulk till eggs save money. You know like I. It's just like I don't like it. My life would probably be more saying if I could just be like oh I ran out of advil. Let me get like a small new thing of advil but like I just can't. It's just like hard to undo that like so I ended up buying like big containers of things and storing them and so like I had like a huge thing of hand sanitizer already because I was unwilling to buy just like little containers of it. I was like no. I'm going to have a little container in refill with my like huge container and I had to like have a rule with myself that I can only stockpile like a year of stuff will give you an example of which you have a year. Supply like Casteel Casteel soap. Like okay something like that. I remember in Grad School. There was like a sail on it and I felt like five huge bottles to you. Is What happens whether you're talking. Yeah so it's just like I like moved with that multiple times late. Who's like you don't go? I don't go through that so very fast. And so it's like I had to make a rule of like I can only stock a year so I don't have to like move with stuff that I've stock too much of. Does that make sense of it? Yes and no yeah. That's the thing I already knew. It wasn't rational but I just like couldn't undo it and now I never will like this is 'cause like I was more ready like I had to Reusable masks lately I had one surgical mask that was reusable in one thousand. Nine mask those reusable. I didn't have to like worry about. I mean the end ninety nine whatever but like the surgical. The reasonable surgical masks will be like very useful. It's like people you know everyone slake grandparents who went through the depression. Yep Yeah like. I'm going to be that person now whereas like well it's going to be seared into your memory and decades from now you'd be like yes but do you remember that time. I know exactly like I was giving toilet paper to other people. Yeah so I I didn't participate in the hoarding food. Stuff because I already had my knock. You pre-ordered I mean not really. I have a small fridge so but like that's the only thing I've heard it since and I. It is not the right word but I just like I went to the grocery yesterday which is like going into like a rationing world. War Two thing in San Francisco is really yet to stand in line like and the line is like six six feet distance and they were letting people in like one at a time and then stuff was rationed at the grocery To some degree not like a huge amount of toilet paper was I liked anyway. Yeah that's not something. I've actually participated in. I other like I I when I was there. I got a bunch of frozen fruit like more than usual because I was just like if I have the frozen fruit. I actually don't come back for a while because I get my fresh fruit at the local Bodega Yeah so I was like okay. I got like three packets of everything. They're usually get one packet of so you're optimization algorithm kicked in. Yeah no and it's like yeah I've always I remember talking to Jeff leak about this in Grad school like I optimize the wrong things like question focusing on like you know coupons or whatever I used to be like true last like coupon cutter Like I've kind of stopped that and it's like oh great. I spent all this mental energy unlike saving twenty bucks instead of working on my dissertation and like that's the point to some degree. So Yeah I. I haven't seen any like signs of panic here. Paper Towels Toilet. Paper are in high demand. But there's tons of science panic here for sure. Although I've been to the grocery in a week so maybe now week later. It's like total panic. Yeah the last time I went I. Last time I went to the grocery was like the day that they announced shelter in place. And that was Kinda mad as Lee. Yeah but now it's better 'cause they're doing like one person at a time going in so it's not like crazy in there but the only other thing that I'm having control is like being matt people who aren't doing the social distancing and like like in the grocery they're just like standing on not getting out of the way and Nali worrying about being close to people I'd like give them a dirty look like walk if you'd like to walk away from this because you're being inconsiderate you know. Does it work? No thirty look doesn't work now because if you're doing that you already are like. Don't you're like you know your emotional state is that you're not really impacted by like other people that's true? Yeah so it's like. Yeah Extra Dirty. Look what that person problem so anyway. So that's the Hillary. It's my station so like I said I needed me more. Like space for like empathy for other people. You know like when you're not in survival mode yourself you can so I just oh my God I mean I think about people look like huge family. Early people who are in like dad home situation is just like unthinkable. You know what I mean like. Oh my God. You're like trapped at home with a spouse or something and stuff. So how are you like? We're saying there's two types people there's people kids and people without kids the threat and we have both. Yeah we have both represented. You know we're take one day at a time here. Even a mugs you know in the spectrum of people who have kids like one kid and then his plus board would kid. That's true you know. Having one kid is a category all its own. I think we've talked about that even before this. Yes yeah yeah. It's not linear growth in difficulty. No yeah this. Exponential Growth A- applies to.
After Coronavirus Outbreak, Protective Masks Are In Short Supply
"Masks are starting to sell out all over the country. As fears of a potential corona virus pandemic spread searches for masks online at local pharmacies and hardware stores. Were coming up short and many of the merchants. That still have masks. Are Jacking up. The prices planet. Money's Greg Rusedski. Has This report last month. Daniel Tomasi decided he wanted to take some extra precautions against the Kerr virus. He's got a pregnant wife and a two year old. He started searching for masks on Amazon and he found that he would have to wait a month to get them so I went to the owner stores of basically every major pharmacy. Cvs walgreens target and certain places right and they were all out of stock so Tomasi colden drove to stores around Saint Louis which is where he lives still no luck so he tried Ebay. You know when I'm buying clothes you base as good enough place but for my medical needs. I never really thought about Ebay as my bill to place so we searches for masks and they were crazy. Expensive the cheapest Massey could find on Ebay. Were four times their standard sticker price thing. I've got fifty masks fifty bucks. It's not going to break. The bank. Was like better safe than sorry to. Mossy story is now the story of millions of people around the world. They're scrambling for masks and it's hard to find them and sellers like on Ebay and Amazon. Have Been Jacking up. Prices according to the online price record keeper a thirty pack of three popular N. Ninety five mask was selling on Amazon for a hundred and ninety nine dollars and ninety five cents on Tuesday normally. It's about fifteen bucks even major. American hospitals are reportedly running out of these masks. Here's the George Mason economist Tyler Cowen while the actual practical concern here. Is that healthcare professionals in hospitals and need to get enough of the masks the US Health and Human Services Secretary Alexander as our says the government wants to buy three hundred million additional ninety five masks to protect Americans. He's urging domestic manufacturers to ramp up production and that's the point there's not enough supply and that's the reason why prices are surging all over the place and obviously that's not popular well when human life possibly is at stake. I think the intuitions about fairness become sharper and stronger. Amazon for example has a policy urging fair pricing. This week told some sellers mass on its marketplace that they could be suspended if they jacked up. The prices. Too Much Amazon doesn't want people to resent masks are a very small share of their overall business but if people get upset at Amazon the whole company could be worthless in other words. It's in Amazon's economic interest to not look too cold hearted as a reputation to protect as for Dino Tomasi. He paid fifty dollars for a box of the wrong masks. I later found out that these might not actually be super effective coronavirus the CDC says on its website the most effective mask against Krona virus is the end ninety. Five or higher respirator mask. But at this moment it's recommending them only for Health
High-Dimensional Robust Statistics with Ilias Diakonikolas
"I'm really looking forward to diving into our discussion before we do. I love to hear a little bit about your background. Your primary research interests are in algorithms and machine learning and If the paper that we're going to discuss this time around distribution independent pack learning of half spaces with mosser noise Which one they outstanding paper award at Europe's it's any Your work is quite theoretical in nature Tell us a little about your background and how you came to working on this type of work right so I grew up in Greece. So and Bis where I did my Undergrad. I moved to Columbia University. For Grad School. My Grad school was In topic cold the theoretical computer science algorithms person and something the process. I realized that the best way to cover impact in the world if you're doing theoretical algorithm research used to actually work on algorithm questions the come from. Mossy learn against that this. Why why is that? Why is that the best place I mean? Maybe yeah maybe the phrasing is not really a good place because this is where this you know our listeners would all agree but I'm curious your thoughts thoughts so I actually started doing this before. It was popular because really I could really see that maybe not all of the theoretical algorithm but one looks some of them could be used in practice and you could see the sort of practical improvements in data analysis tasks so but like in I used to like doing a theoretical griffin. Chris just for the sake of doing it but sort of like after my fingers might the I started good ovulating towards ethical questions that if solved would actually have a product. The galleon bucked described for us. Broadly your research interests and focus so that we have a little bit of the context out of which this paper comes so I come interest within the algorithms in learning so this particular nerves paper. belongs High level which is called the high dimensional Obama's. Learning the idea. Here is that historically every machine learning algorithm needs to make some assumptions assumptions about the model where the data comes from so in some sense very roughly speaking every algorithm could could be viewed as a data fitting methods. You're trying to feed the data to model now. The issues that this assumption about the data coming from a model of a given type is very crucial so and typically do not want your algorithm to overfeed to this assumption in the says that in this assumption is that exactly through but if it's approximately through you want your algorithm to still work and unfortunately entire dimensional sailings. We realized about five years ago. This actually not the case even a very tiny deviation from the assume model could make the rub the machine learning algorithm very fragile so we in decided that okay we need to rectify his developed methodology to have robust learning algorithms for high dimensional problems. And so when you talk about high dimensional problems and perturbations are you thinking about things like the adversarial examples types of problems that we are familiar with where you've got an image high dimensional and you apply some some noise to it so that's a great question I was. I was expecting this question exactly to to throw a difference so these types of recital examples also some type of robustness the question type of buses but somewhat difference. Learn the one I'd like to discuss in particular in the certain adversary robust setting. What you have is if you train you train your network on some images right and then you perturb those images. In a way that's imperceptible to humans and see how the how the model learn performs. We have learned. That's actually under Boston. We need to do something to make it. Robust so the participations in the recital bus setting take place up test time so you train with a bunch of clean data and then you want to test on a set of corrupted data so the sending over Bosnia least with respect to this line of work is something that's called tests diamox. What you actually train on corrupting data. These two are related. So these two notions of Obama's isolated but they're also quite a bit different and you said they're called test time adapts. Yeah but the data is perturbed in training. So this is a cold time. Docs got what I'm GonNa talk about the It's called trading diamondbacks. Okay right so let me give you an example like the most basic example of that. I expect anyone could could understand with just a little bit of bug so if I give you samples like ID samples from public distribution. Like Goshen. And I ask you to find the expectation that mean value offer with distribution whatever samples. Come from let's say in in one dimension than what would you do to find the main value? Yeah you'd some them and divide by the number of samples you have. Yeah that's what that's about sir. Gold sort of empirical mean and we know that it works right. Unfortunately though if one of the summers they give you is not drawn from the distribution that you are strongly it was. It's out liar. Then the average doesn't work anymore was the betrayal far from the tool mean. It's not going to convert through mean even if you take infantryman samples. So what are we doing this case so for the one dimensional saving is known for like I duNno? Essential in statistics. So he still taking the average. You're taking staffing with the skull. The median. Okay. So we know that the media is robust to outliers and it's optimally robust for one dimensional problems right. Lie merging a generalization with this problem too high dimensions so now observing one dimensional points. You're observing high dimensional points every observation that you have is high dimensional. Let's say the dimensions and you want to do the same thing. You want to actually compute the expected value of the corresponding distribution now in the case of polling data. You will do exactly the same thing that you did. In the one dimensional case you would sam all the samples and the divide by the number of the samples so this is the umbilical meaning high dimensions and in the case of clean. Data it works. Now the difficulty is actually generalizing this dimensional and be mean when you actually have. Let's say ten percent of your of your samples being arbitrary. I would liars in this case. Unfortunately there is not an easy solution as taking the media meeting because the media in a high dimensional scenario isn't wall defined or because of the number of outliers you have. Let's these are great questions. So there are many ways to define north of a medium high dimensions for example. One thing that you could do is look at their coordinate individually and calculating the median. Coordinate and giving the dancer unfortunately this is not gonNa work they gonNA work is because you have many dimensions and in some sense. The noise can accumulate across dimensions. So if you let's say even a one percent of outliers then the answer you're going to get at. The end is going to be very large. In the worst case would actually depends on. Who would actually scale with the number of dimensions? And this is something that you can avoid. We know that you can avoid that if you look at like information theoretic bounds. But we didn't know how avoided with the computational efficient algorithm with a method that you can actually ran all right so what we did for years ago with a number of great golfers is we developed the first methods that is actually robust for estimating tied immeasurable distribution to constant number of outliers. So even if you have. Let's say twenty percent about liars and no matter. How highly dimension is the algorithm around sufficiently and gives you an accurate approximation of what's the general flavor or shape of this algorithm? I see so many versions. Maybe they easiest want is about Sort of detecting and removing the consequential outlines so we are in a high dimensional setting so the most sort of knives thing to try to do is detect out liars and remove them and after you do the venue just the output V. The men of the rest I will be the ideal methodology to solve the problem. They show is that this is impossible. We can't prove that it is impossible to actually detect the outliers in dimension setting. So what do we do so the next thing to try deuce okay? Maybe I cannot detect a remove. All the outliers. Maybe I contacted. Remove the ones that If I kept the data sets then they would actually skew the appeal coming by a lot. Turns out that this is something that you can do by using spectral move
Prison Guards, Serial Bombers, and National Forest Murders
"This is a prison. Guard story Hello beautiful people. Hello let's get into it okay. My Dad he's really. My stepdad. Raised me my biological dad doesn't deserve the title suck at Dennis. You get to write in and you get to say what you want. That's right so my dad was a guard at a maximum security prison in Arkansas for several years during his twenty S. He has many stories about the job. But my favourite has to be the time he was almost murdered by an inmate. While working in general population he became good friends with a lot of the inmates in Gen pop and really enjoyed his job. However there are always some bad apples in person who wrote this under the Philippine. Ain't no one to stir up trouble on one of these. Inmates Really headed out for my dad. For some reason one day say he was the corrections off. That's why one day said inmate walked up behind my dad with a shaking. His hand made from a toothbrush just as he was about to attack. My Dad another inmate saw what was happening. Pulled out his own. Shame shanks for everyone. But no one's brushing. Their teeth came up behind the bad inmate and stabbed him in the throat. Oh my God calling him. Oh My fucking God. My Dad Remembers hearing scuttle behind him when he turned around. He saw the bad inmates body on the ground. The good inmate looked at my dad and said WHO's about to kill you. She's Christ Ama- journalists and naturally peppered my dad with questions including how the hell dealmaker shank out of a toothbrush. But he didn't know much more to the fact that is back with churn and they never found out what the inmates motive was. He was a murderer. Our Young. Let's about it it's jails jails and the place where you start critical and planning out. Good stuff that you're GONNA do. My Dad stayed employed at the prison for a while after that the good inmate ended up getting released on good behaviour not too long after he saved my dad's like well you know. I wonder if that was part of the decision making process. He saved a fucking a corrections officer and probably chances are took care of some of his own business. Amen Ra I mean you. You wouldn't do that entirely just for a corrections officer would you? Maybe not yeah good behavior including murdering people who were going to murder correction soft. Yeah it's all makes me think of is everyone should listen to ear hustle? Because it's a podcast that is made by people who are in prison day. Tell stories all about this stuff and they can speak to it right there. Probably like yeah. There's lots of critical thinking and in prison because you have to alive day your hustle one hundred percent the good. Needless to say we are all very grateful. My Dad had friends on the inside. Stay sexy always make friends in jail. Question Love Kate. Be The kind of corrections officer that people would want to say. That's true that's a good kind of life philosophy okay. If occur how about if a correction for corrections officer can make friends with prison. Inmates than you could make friends with anyone. Anyone in your dorm right. Stay positive. I'm not going to be the subject line of this because it gives away okay. Am FM crew. Great pod don't ever change. Here's my story on January twenty nine. Th One thousand nine hundred eighty eight Eric. Robert Rudolph bombed an abortion clinic in Birmingham Alabama. Roughly six months later my brother and I- ages seven and nine respectively. Were on a mission to make a hot summer day at least slightly different than all the other ones that came before it. Our childhood home in Birmingham. Suburb backed up two miles of woods where we spent most of our free ranch childhood. I saying on this particular day. We decided to take a left where we normally went right and came upon a makeshift camp ground. Oh my a single folding chair. Dozens of empty span. And even more michelob. Ultra bottles were scattered around the burnt-out firepit. Naturally our first instinct was to touch everything. He stomped on this pam tens through the bottles against trees and use the folding chair to reenact some of our favorite. Wwe move right after we had caused all the mayhem. We could and destroyed any chance of evidence collection. We ran home to tell her mom about our day. I'll never forget the FE. She made or the tone of voice as she related discovery to a nine one. One operator as it turns out. Police suspected Rudolph hit out in the woods around Birmingham for a while after the bombing after the police inspected the place they told my parents. It was probably just a local teenagers. Hang out spot but to this day. My mother swears quote. Only a psychopath would eat that much spans. Thank you Eric Eric. Robert Rudolph was finally arrested in two thousand three in North Carolina. Where he'd been hiding in the woods for years during his reign of terror. He bumped Centennial Park during the Nineteen Ninety six Olympics. Other borsch another abortion clinic and a lesbian bar all in Atlanta. After his arrest he explained he was fighting against abortion. End Quote the homosexual agenda. Fuck you real. He's currently serving life without possibility of parole in a supermax prison rate. Stay sexy and if you can't stay out of the forest at least don't disturb a serial bomber. Hang out. Jim Be as my dad made us clean up the scene after the call. Such a dad move. That is such a dad me ended up. Clean it up. We thought God Jim Amazing. That was real. That's so scary. Guys that is. That's like the that's exactly what the eighties were like. Yes destroy fucking Cobo camp that you found yeah could have belonged to a serial killer. Your Dad made you clean it up. You're the one somehow in your Brown quarter Iraq. That's getting in trouble that's right. This is witness murder trial. Hello Georgia and Karen as a longtime true crime fan and more recent listener of your podcasts. I have to share with you that last week. I had one of the most thrilling experiences of my life when was called as a witness in a murder trial. Oh my God I worked for the. Us force service in Dark Mossy sasquatch infested national forests in the eight years. I've worked for the Forest Service. I've learned that people will go to their public lands to do weird things. Yeah they do. I've encountered a cachet of stolen guns a wild west shootout between a real cowboy and some tweezers a hostage situation mysteriously exploding four wheelers and countless people that. I'm pretty sure did something illegal. I just didn't know quite what I was called. As a witness in a trial involving two young men who were very much under the influence of drugs that decided for whatever reason to steal a mini van belonging to one of their stepparents and take a trip into the national forest in the dead of winter. Two Thousand Nineteen during a week of heavy rain while. I'm not sure exactly the motive when the two men stopped at a campsite in the forest one of the men overcame and murdered the other one then set the minivan ablaze. Oh my God. My role as a witness was fairly minor. I was asked to testify when the campsite was or was not occupied that week in order to establish a timeline however it was absolutely thrilling to stand before a judge. Swear IN HELP. Put the murderer behind bars. He was found guilty. After a mere four hours of deliberation. I had to share this with you because it was just so exciting I do however feel very bad for the family of the victim who most certainly did not deserve to die that night in the forest sincerely. Cs Drugs Drugs. Drugs are a bummer Obama. The forest is Obama. Just like the idea of being a minivan high out of your mind. I have an idea. Let's go to a remote part of the forest and then all snap and lose my mind. Poor awful just not cool

The Last of Us Part II: Hands-On Impressions
"The mood a little bit about what the event that was like and which which dilapidated coffee shop you got to pretend you're and we're brought to the Hollywood modern warehouse of big big open space with like twelve. TV's in it and so we were brought in we had a brief presentation about the game with some helpful gameplay tips from game wicky expert Neil Druckman and he gives some advice on what we're about to play and then we sat down a few stands you may have seen photos online on my twitter other people's who pretended they had just like a rundown shack over here or restaurants coffee over there nothing that extravagant it was actually pretty low key as an event but they had a few of those stands and then just just a bunch of TV's and they said sit down play the last of us part two and what we played was two levels. I think both are pretty early in the game. They didn't tell US exactly specifics expert. They were not the intro to the game. They were called patrol and then there was a level called suburbs patrol was set in Jackson. Wyoming where Elliott and jeweler living post host last of US one they're living there. The this sequence took place immediately after the three twenty eighteen trailer where we I saw Elliot at the dance with DNA played by Shannon Woodward and the two of them kiss dance and then we see a next day which is basically a patrol day in their life of how they live at this encampment the second part was suburbs which was set in Seattle and Seattle has basically been turned into this militant overrun state by group WWL F. and basically basically if you're not a member of the WF or part of their regime the people that they look over the don't want you in Seattle and they will either take you prisoner or kill you as a result and Elliot's there to rescue some friend who shouldn't be there and that leads to a lot of terrible terrible interactions with terrible scavengers. Now you have an idea of before these are set sort of in the story following the trailer but you have a sense of her. They are sort of in the structure of the game. I think they were both act. One for sure I would say day so there will be some story spoilers throughout talk about I'll try to keep it as light as possible but the second chapter chapter the suburbs bit definitely split apart. They did not happen. Sequentially suburbs ended with that moment withdrawal at the end of the new release date trailer where he's there and keeps Sir safe from scavengers. Why what do you think I'd let you do this alone. That's how that demo ended and I think that's a hell of an act one to me. That felt like a great act one. Here's the end of the story okay. We're GONNA get into something totally different now because to me that implies. Joe Is Not really a big presence in the first third of the game at least you and I love how the tables will tend possibly in the second act. Where Joel is your companion. Yeah we still have this obviously the lingering bombshell from the end of the first game and does that feel like there's a mossy there does that feel like that will get addressed. It definitely does and I got to speak to kneel after as well in the way he described it was like in this game their relationship Asian chip is strained. This'll love each other but the events of the first game definitely impacted them and you know the end of the last US leave some ru open to interpretation of how Elliot took what happened and how much he actually knows. I think Elliot's a smart enough person to know what transpired but he would have figured it out by Nick and especially by now I think she knows it's tough to we'll. We'll try our best to not score that because it is a playstation plus game yes yeah I mean presumably if you're watching stuff about the last part to you played the last of us part one save on suffice to say the ending of the loss of original was very it lift Joel in a very morally gray area. Yes it it is I would say one of the best video I think yeah sure if and and for me that s probably Super Mario Brothers to where it's it's very Ming yeah which is very special and Conquers Bedford yes but yeah this actually has a lot of parallels with Congress Bedford Day but we'll get to that I once oh bed so yeah. It very much felt like these two chapters were in a pretty early on in the game. The first patrol level very much felt like here's how some of the new mechanics work. Here's the basics of combat so that that I would say is probably within the first hour or two after whatever the intro is and then patrols probably a little bit later on from there but Neil and then some of the other team members like they're all. They were very much reiterating this event. What you're seeing is a very small slice of this game like they were. They've been saying this is the the biggest game naughty dog has ever done in terms of scope on a gameplay complexity level on a world level on a story level and so which I'm a little I don't want to say like skeptical about I am a little apprehensive about because I did feel like on charter for awhile it had a ton of excellent stuff did have a little bit of bloat and oversight. Its welcome a little bit. I did appreciate that it allowed you in the story to sort of stop and smell the roses here and there but that game felt needlessly padded at times with a lot of puzzles stuff but that said this has always been a more story driven you know output from that studio so I do have faith that something cool pool come from all that I mean the my favorite seasons of TV. Shows are eight to ten hours. You know I would say that my least favorite shows are the ones that are twenty four hours a season and so so I do hope that there there is a a narrative justification for this being that long I know Gamers do ten a complaint longer with better because because it is a better value for sixty bucks but at the end of the day I do. I want them to have a very strong narrative driven reason to be here for the song that the tone of the last most of us is definitely more suited to a longer game. He does have those quiet moments. It's a sort of stealth game which encourages you to sort of like it's it's kind of it's brooding in its in its totally only much different from uncharted. which is you don't see many like popcorn action movies that are four hours long whereas dramatic prestige television goes on for you know he's take time yeah and the game play perspective? Utah show that Max like we were just chatting before the loss of us is very much it has the beating heart of us have a horror which means that you know instead of plowing through wave away the enemies like you doin'. China full which did grow and by the end like theoretically theoretically every encounter will be very considered like each combat encounter I hadn't we can get into combat and the second is very like brutal and I had to consider every every single opponent that I could run into but on the in terms of game length side. I'm definitely cautiously optimistic because right now we can only go on the eighth of what we've been told but talking to neil he very much like the thing that's the team about. The last of us is it's tension and that that never lets up you do have those quiet moments here and there but like as an overarching story it is constantly propelling you forward and he said that was the goal with this game like this is not a game where there patting out with like here's twenty fund side missions right now like he was like this is a ten game all the way through and we're keeping thing that tone in that pace in the sequel just happens to be larger because of the story necessitated that right it's like. Dina's missing and she's got to go collect ten flowers uh-huh so sorry guys just going to go through this and even said that is an example. He's like there's nothing worse than a game where you're like. Hey I need to save my best friend around but first let me find these five potions for you to go out on patrol look for survivors but also collect one hundred crickets because I want to impress a girl I mean me and Horizon Listen. I was like there's a lot to do but I should get the coffee mugs because I'm a sucker for for stuff like that. the environment speaking of which they feel like there was a little more room to swim around amount or not necessarily swim around 'cause. I couldn't swim in the first game and I saw no swimming swimming swimming. TVD I forgot to ask Neil about swimming. I've said this before she has nothing to do you and she has no school should lynn to swim swim sort it out yet environmentally. It's the approach that they're taking is that like white linear thing that everyone likes to say and as such a marketing term but essentially like it is a game that has forward momentum both on the story and your progression of the world but you'll get to areas that are larger and so kind of like you know like got a tomb raider which I was thinking that we don't actually have a a term for that. You just said why why they call it in the depth side because they hate this thing dibs when you talk to. Dave's because everyone's always angling for is it open well and they they like no. It's not open world but then they have nothing thing to kind of replace it with the finish finish. I think widely is probably I mean. I hate it but it's probably the best description we've got. I understand it. The the structure of the first last of us is very much rooted in last Chen like it. We got this you know. ps four in this generation has brought a ton of open world is almost standard and that that level of sort of of openness player freedom and we saw this with with uncharted forward. There's the big hold like deep area and you know big sprawling areas to explore but it's still a linear story. We almost have to rewind to be like how to talk about how it's how it's structured can talk about that a little bit yes so at least in the portions that I saw it was very much like a as you progressed through that level there are certain points where it closes off the back part of that level progressing through a story beat in the world and and so if you missed you know a couple of pieces of ammo back there or some medication to help like up your skills it's gone
Lawmaker accuses Justice Department of blocking whistleblower disclosure
"On August twelfth a whistle blower father a whistle blower filed a complaint with intelligence community inspector general Michael act concerned who serves as the watch dog for the US intelligence community that he named was credible and urgent within the definition of the law The Washington Post reported last night that the complaint concerning communication between trump a foreign leader in which the president made some kind of promise. acting director of national intelligence just acquire has refused to turn over the complaint to Congress as is usually required by law today actions and declined to provide lawmakers on the house intelligence committee with details of the whistle blower complaint The New York Times reported that the complaint is said to involve multiple acts by trump not just one conversation with a foreign leader the president tweeted this in response to the reports quote another fake news story out there never ends virtually any time I speak on the phone to a foreign leader I understand that there may be many people listening from various US agencies not to mention those from the other country itself no problem knowing all of this is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially heavily populated call I would only do what is right anyway and only do good for the USA joining us now to offer some insight into these reports and how all of this works is national security lawyer Brad mas he can follow on Twitter at Brad mosque he S. Q. Brad how are you. good right how you doing this evening good thank you so much for joining us so let's start with how normal intelligence community whistle blower complaint works something you've handled and no well and then we'll get to this specific situation sure so in a standard situation and what you would have is the individual which wrapped up whatever is the nature of the complaint they waited submitted to the inspector general of the intelligence community and the inspector general refuse that determinate the credible in qualifies it's what's called an urgent concerns and urgent concern being a lay great abuse of long that is not simply a public policy dispute and if the inspector general says yes this is credible he for that on to the director of national intelligence and a director of national intelligence send it to the intelligence committees that did not happen here so real quick what what generally constitutes these complaints sent to the inspector general. so could be any number of things that can be that they you know that there's a mid level manager miss using agency assets for personal use personal enrichment you can think of is systemic misuse of agency authority in terms of how an agency is managing surveillance powers and how they're submitting applications anything along those lines and how frequently do these complaints to the inspector general occur. they're not often this is not typically use thing any you're talking maybe it doesn't twenty at most of the year and most of them are not found to be credible. okay this one was found to be credible credible correct it it it got classified as urgent. yes correct it did and the more important part it apparently implicates a very senior level official if not the present United States court reporting so what makes this complaint then different from a normal complaint in terms of the steps that it would go through. so the problem here and this is what we've seen that with what happened in the subsequent Spahn it is the way the statue in the relevant statutes call the intelligence community whistleblower protection act the statute was not designed to address the situation in which the individual against whom the whistle is being blown was someone above the director of national intelligence or facing an unprecedented situation and so the problem that we are facing is how to handle it when the person is beyond the D. and icy profession okay so because everybody who's typically under the director of national intelligence once the D. and I received a complaint he would just take it to the house intelligence committee that would be the normal process be because this is somebody who's above the D. N. I. it's preventing him from doing that. that's what the justice department is apparently it by the end I could do so at the end I could have simply transmitted it but because the individual against him the whistles being blown was apparently the president he sought guidance from the justice department the justice department reviewed the complaint and said this does not fall within the mandatory obligation for you to transmit this to the intelligence committees because the president is not under your supervision and the purpose of this stature the purpose of the icy WPA with you give whistleblowers away to notify Congress and particularly the intelligence committees in particular the oversight entities yes the these oversight entities that we created in the aftermath of mixing to give them access to an understanding of the problems that are ongoing within the intelligence community not just to limit it to the executive branch itself here's the problem I have though if it stays within the executive branch whether it's at the department of justice and and the only people that know about it's the D. and IT inspector general department of justice all executive branch figures then you have no oversight. correct in that. it's about the president because the president oversees the department of justice. in the the difficulty we're facing here the struggle were facing is because the statute never envisioned that this type of factual scenario it didn't have the mechanism properly designed to address what did the and I should do and so the advice the legal advice that was given to the end I from the justice department had some legitimate basis based off a very narrow but still legitimate reading of the strict language of the statute and at that is that if it does not that the urgent concern only applies if it falls under the supervision of the D. and I and so this is this you know political no man's land facing. all past practice of the last twenty one years tells you this is how it's still possible to be done but your facing a scenario that you've never had before we're talking to national security lawyer Brad mossy can follow on Twitter at Brad mas E. S. Q. so the inspector general went before the intelligence committee today and didn't really say anything because he couldn't write that the director of national intelligence must've instructed him based on what the department of justice said not to reveal the complaint to Congress. so in a letter that came out shortly after RB inspector general's testimony included I believe was released by the house intelligence committee there was a letter from the specter general dated two days ago that outline that he had been repeatedly asking for authorization from the director of national intelligence to reveal at least some detail to the intelligence committee about what had gone on what was the nature of the disclosure even if it wasn't to be disclosing disclosing the complaint itself and at the end I had continued to refuse and until the IG has that authorization. he can't say anything and that's why you had what you had today where he could not. confirm anything he could not address any of the reporting now what power does Congress have to compel the D. and night to provide them the complaints that the whistle blower issue is there any recourse that Congress has. very little for the way Congress set up the statute no it didn't create any rate of judicial review or any private called the faction all it all they have the ability to do it actually everything. they could subpoena the director of national intelligence. I can testify in open session on next Thursday if he doesn't answer the questions they can hold them in contempt and they could refer him for transportation to the justice department which of course is not gonna do anything. they can try to use their own inherent authority you have the sergeant arms arrest him which of course they're not going to do they could sue. claiming that the year so their subpoena has been obstructed and try to compel disclosure but then becomes the legal debate in court over a very new wants to narrow piece of language in the link the statue for. they essentially try to define parts the deny as leverage which would be politically dangerous let me ask you this in terms of. god. a bread on just for a quick this is Felix Vega could the whistle blower themselves go directly to Congress. now so here is I own a copy out that under the terms of the I. T. W. P. eight it does not grant the whistle blower the authority on their own to just go to a member of Congress now there are those of us including myself who argue that they be visible or already has that authority to go to select committees like the intelligence committee get they have the necessary security clearances they have the relevant facilities that they should be allowed to go do that no one's ever been criminally charged that contact but if the whistle blower were to do that they would almost certainly be fired in the clear. is this a form is this some form of executive privilege basically that is being invoked here because it involves the president conversations that he had that apparently this was a blower was privy to that that is why the department of justice believes that it doesn't have to be turned over to Congress also at the moment it's only a classification issue that clearly been involved and that's why the I. T. W. P. A. this as a mechanism is because these are classified disclosures they're coming to Congress yes though this became a legal fight in court between the house intelligence committee and the president or the M. night there would be an issue indications of executive privilege because yeah this is something involving the president's communication we're talking a national security lawyer Brad mas here on PM Tampa Bay if the president wanted to because the president claims look there's nothing to see here if he wanted to he could immediately declassified a whistle blower complaint and make a public correct. course he cut which also course in the end says well wait a minute he's made clear he has no prom exercising that authority the with the NO a president has done yet he hasn't done that here despite all this media spectacle we've had for the last six days about what's going on here and now these reports suggesting he basically made some illicit promise to a foreign head of state why wouldn't he want to just the classified it and let the information come out well at the sixty four thousand dollar question only Donald J. trump after that year in DC you're in the middle of of the national security apparatus they're clearly somebody is leaking information now to the media about the complaint we learn that allegedly it involves now the Washington post is reporting the complaint about president trump involves Ukraine so that's a new report but we're learning that involves potentially conversation between the president and a foreign leader then we learned that it could be multiple incidents that are contained in this complaint so we'll be information do you think get out there anyway and how dangerous is that for people to leak are parts of this complaint. we'll be clear anybody who's leaking parts of that complaint at a moment after at a minimum they're risking have being fired and losing their clearances and depending on if parts of it are classified that they're leaking out they could also face criminal penalties that all being said yes it seems that the majority if not all of this complaint will eventually get leaked out. the only question is will it all be done before the actual verified details get provided the Congress or this one the situations with a whistle blower tried to do it right went through the process in the end because of obstruction from that the N. nine the White House is that gonna of actually be under cut in the very thing he or she was trying to keep quiet and properly report to Congress without leaking it to the public is gonna get leaked out anyway it's by other individuals with their own potential agenda and Brian terms of this statue just seems like it makes no sense. once again that there would not be a fail safe for anyone above the D. and I too you know there if someone did something wrong and basically blocks anyone above the D. and I from being reported to Congress and anyone finding out about this is this something Congress can change in the interim possibly or do they have to wait until you know that this is over with. all the I mean they could change it tomorrow but when applied to this situation necessarily unless the contact gently can't make it retroactive like that but I think the reason why they never contemplated applying this far higher level above that the N. nine there was some legislative debate arming Congress when they passed the original bill back in nineteen in the late nineteen nineties wise you ultimately at that higher level perfectly the president you're dealing with someone with so much discretion and so much inherent constitutional authority that it's very difficult to imagine that anything that would actually fall within the scope of a flagrant violation or abuse of law as opposed to simply dispute over public policy matter is opposed to someone who's more of a mid level manager just relying on what the delegated to them so there there there were there were been inherent constitutional Kanya tension with trying to apply this to the president I'm sure that something that would come up if they're all the litigation over this which is why it's never been applied to

Was The Lorax Really A Monkey?
"Short Orange and moustachioed he famously speaks for the trees. He's the law wrecks on of Dr Seuss's most beloved characters known for his environmental. Activism he might also have been based on a real life creature. That's the premise of one study which proposes that this sort of a man described as shortish and oldish and Brownish and Mossy could've urban inspired by the Patas monkey in one thousand nine hundred seventy Dr Seuss real name Theodor Geisel took a trip to Kenya there he likely observed some primates who are orange stand donor hind legs and yes have a mustache. Mustache these potus monkeys even have arrested call that might remind you of the Laura Axes Sawdust e sneeze the studies researchers took this comparison one step further using facial recognition software to compare the florax to possible real life inspirations though results the lurex looks an awful lot like a blue monkey or Pout US monkey was also interesting is that potus monkeys get their food from whistling thorn cases. which resemble some old trophy trees in the books illustrations in the story the trump bula trees need the law rex to protect them but maybe like the PAS monkeys living off the cases? The Laura eggs needs tributaries to so this could mean that the Laura had a symbiotic relationship with the trump bula trees the study says if so the LUREX is less and environmental activists and more a creature of a threatened habitat.

The answers on her daughters SAT's, but she was also one of the first parents to agree to plead guilty in analysts say that could work in her favor. Felicity Huffman is expected to admit to a federal judge today that she broke the law in a statement, the actress had expressed deep regret and Shane my daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, this transgression toward her and the public. I will carry for the rest of my life. Prosecutors recommended Huffman pay twenty thousand dollar fine, sir. Four to ten months behind bars, Felicity Huffman has been the model defendant in this case. The judge has every right and ability to give her less than that, including probation and community service or give her more than that another parent expected to plead guilty today is Devon Sloan prosecutors allege the Los Angeles businessmen paid the schemes mastermind Rick singer, two hundred fifty thousand dollars to get his son into USC as a water polo recruit.

Prosecutors say guidance counselor also raised red flags about the applications for Laurie Lachlan and mossy Mojo newly daughters who were admitted to USC as crew recruit. But gee, newly allegedly
Why Are Peat Bogs So Good at Preserving Human Remains?
"Are pretty awesome. As far as sweeping mud fields of dead buried plants go. They store the energy of generations of plants there mass which can be harvested as Pete they're also havens for mummies artifacts buried beneath bugs, including human bodies may be kept in astonishingly good condition for thousands and thousands of years. They've all got stories to tell and today. We'll look at the weird science that makes their preservation possible. Common in cool. Wet parts of the world bugs are waterlogged grounds. That formed when decaying plant matter known as peat accumulates in low lying areas bugs are usually found in cool climates and often in lake basins created by ice age glaciers that no longer. Get a steady flow of river or stream water overtime Mazas cover the heap, like a blanket, and in most cases. This mossy layer is primarily made of a mosque called sphagnum. Spackman moss has the power to transform an entire landscape water dirt trapped beneath sheets of it will be cut off from the normal supply of oxygen from the atmosphere. Also, spelled them soaks up calcium and magnesium, which makes the underlying soil and water mildly acidic since bacteria and fungi. Find those conditions in hospitable. The dead vegetation decomposes at phenomenally slow rate instead of breaking down right away. It lingers piling up over time masses of the botanical waste gradually turned into Pete a soggy, mud colored sub. Instance peat can be used as animal bedding, and as a fossil fuel which makes it an important commodity in places like the Irish Midlands and in Scotland where it's the traditional fuel for fires that dry out grain to make scotch whisky in parting smoke, and it's flavors along with that heat. But to archaeologists Pete is a lot less valuable than the human corpses. That sometimes come with it bogs have long fascinated humans not just for their fossil fuels the spongy soil has intrigued people as far back as the bronze age many people died in these bogs or replaced their after their deaths and these bog bodies as they're known have been found all over the world. The wetlands of north western Europe. For instance, is a bog body hub hundreds of these corpses have turned up in Germany England, the Netherlands and neighboring countries in twenty eleven Pete harvesters working in Ireland accidentally ran over. A bronze age corpse with a milling machine dubbed, the Cashel, man. The harvester found all that was left of an adult male who probably died in his twenties. His body was riddled. With injuries, including a broken arm and a nasty cut across the backside. Some of these may have been caused by the compressing weight of the bog moss above him or the blades of that milling device. Nevertheless, archaeologists have reason to suspect that the Cashel man was a ritualized sacrifice victim other European bog bodies have displayed stab wounds, slit throats and evidence of torture historians things that the local wetlands were once a hotbed for religious sacrifices carbon dating tells us the Cashel man perished about four thousand years ago, seven centuries before king Tutankhamun was born to date. He's the oldest Earp, Ian, bog body on record with intact skin. That's right. The corpse of somebody who's been dead for four millennia still has its skin attached. And this isn't a fluke. Lots of bog bodies, retain, some or all of their original skin, the talent man at twenty three hundred year old corpse recovered from Denmark peat bog in nineteen fifty has skeleton is tens but elsewhere his skin is so well preserved that little details like the wrinkles on his forehead. Are still visible, although the talent man skin didn't rot away. The medication process did change its appearance and texture like the Cashel man and lots of other bog bodies. He sports leathery dark Brown skin. Some of them also have preserved hair that was dyed red after death. This is most likely caused by a recently discovered polymer called Spackman, which seeps out of debt, Spag them moss. If you think of leather it's made through a process called tanning that strengthens the bonds between some of the natural fibers in animal hides as a tanning agent Spag man has the same effect on human skin rendering, tough and tea colored sphagnum also binds with nitrogen, which bacteria needs survive. So by removing nitrogen from the environment Spag, Dan helps prevent the spread of microorganisms that would normally be breaking down human and animal remains and Furthermore Spackman along with the acid that it turns into polls calcium right out of dead bodies bones. Get weakened in the process, although sphagnum. Does a fine job of preserving skin. It's calcium. Thievery isn't great for skeletons mummies have been found in certain Boggs with soft extra flimsy bones. That are about to studies cardboard and that have been distorted by heavy Pete. But that's assuming the decalcification process doesn't altogether eliminate bones. Lots of bog bodies have been found missing bones. And some of the monies are totally boneless. The latter are basically human shaped bags of leathery skin, wrapped around pickled organs. Not all Boggs are so hostile to bones, though, the waters acidity level varies from bogged bog, and this impacts corpse preservation archaeologists have discovered that in really acidic peat bogs. The resident mummies have lots of skin and soft tissue and weak or non-existent bones. But there are some boggy places with relatively alkaline water here the environment pretty much has the opposite effect on corpses. A take for example, the window ver- archaeological site Pete bottomed pond in Florida that became the final resting place for dozens of native Americans between. Seven and eight thousand years ago skeletal remains from one hundred sixty eight people have turned up in the Pete a large deposit of crushed up snail shells, lying under the pond supplies the water with magnesium and calcium carbonates that makes the water. More alkaline neutralizing the span into an extent instead of mummified skin bags. The bog is rife with naked bones and skeletons a bears they are on the outside the ancient bones had a big surprise in store for scientists brain tissue was found in more than ninety of the wind over pond skulls making them extra fascinating fines,
