Dr. Sebastian Gorka: 'Rule of Law' Should Matter to Ron DeSantis
"Doctor Sebastian gorka, was talking to Eric bolling over at newsmax yesterday and incidentally, how about that big victory for newsmax back on DirecTV? Looks like looked like there was enough of a pushback that AT&T, the parent company are, yeah, AT&T, the parent company of DirecTV, saw fit to return newsmax to their big platform. Which is big news for newsmax. I'm sure they're celebrating over there. Here's Eric. Talking to our colleague, Sebastian gorka, and doctor G doesn't sound like he's much of a Ron DeSantis fan. Let's just say the governor of Florida has not shout himself in glory in the last four days. Let's remind everybody that president Trump is a resident of the state of Florida that he is governor of. He says nothing for 48 hours about the impending arrest of the 45th and potentially 47th president of the United States. And then in the press conference on Monday on another topic he's asked and he does this snarky thing twice. He has to talk about hush money for porn stars twice and get giggles from the peanut gallery. It's an NDA. I signed an NDA with president Trump in 2015 and I ain't no porn star. I was writing security papers for the presidential nominee debate and an NDA is absolutely normal. So the idea that he says this is none of our business I'm going to concentrate on Florida. You're a former jagran rule of law should matter to you in the interview with pays Morgan was a bloody embarrassment.

Yeah, it could be anything. And so they have to do all this stuff. We were literally in this place for like an hour while they were like, oh yeah, it was nothing.

Doug Sits Down With Jason Pye to Discuss the EQUAL ACT
"Equal act for those or not. And it's got to get done in some form. Some shape form or fashion, it's got to get done and I think that's going to be a key. Your hopes, I know you like me and we're going to be probably working on this some more together. But NDA thinks a great place for it or a CR would be a great place for it if we could get it in. I'm concerned that I'm very concerned that Republicans are going to block the ability to do a CR, especially if they take the house and definitely if they take the Senate, which means that for me in the military is problematic because again, military sort of at a standstill when you do a CR. It's just not there. And the normal stuff gets done. Where do we see what we're seeing right now with equal? Well, I think the play right now that we've been working on and you're right. There are two there are going to be a couple of different pieces of legislation. Maybe as many as four that come to the floor during the lame duck session. Two of those are not ideal places for this. The other two are. One of those is the omnibus, which or CR. And I really dug, I think you're right, I think it depends entirely on what the outcome of the election is. If Republicans take back the house, which is likely and they take the Senate, which is, I think it's less likely. I'm not saying it's unlikely it's less likely. I think we're looking at a CR that kicks government funding in February or March. But if we get an omnibus, yes, it's a place it's a place to put it because, you know, from your time in Congress and in the house, that they put all kinds of random stuff in the omnibus that sometimes has not even gone through regular order committee. They give Christmas trees a bad name, okay? Let's just be honest with it here.

Wesley Donehue Discusses the Safety Net of the Welfare State
"I want to go back to something before we hit the book real quick. You might have an interesting statement. We've seen this in others. I'd like for you to, as you said, unpack it a little bit. Going through the struggles of section 8, you know, government programs, the safety net version of a lot of these lives. It solidified, I think your words were your conservative thought, your conservative age. Explain that because the liberal world, and there's a lot in this world, a liberal concern, they'll say that that would just reinforce that, you know, this is the way it ought to be. You came out with a different impression. Yeah. I don't want to call myself a moderate because I'm actually very conservative, but when it comes to the welfare state, I'm actually somewhere in the middle. I'm a Republican who believes that it is necessary and that as a culture we are called even as a Christian, we are called to take care of those who can't take care of themselves. And I believe we need a safety net to catch people to help them. But that safety net has to be temporary or temporary. And we have to be able to take those people that are hurting and teach them and train them and help them get back on their feet. And I remember asking my dad one day why he never went to work and he was trying to be, I think, loving and he said, but buddy, government pays me to stay home with you all day. And I think he was trying to be nice, but as I grew up, what I realized is that because he got these checks to sit on his butt all day, I remember he would just chain smoking cigarettes, sit in a recliner, watching TV all day and then getting bored and doing drugs and becoming a drug addict and eventually selling drugs. And I saw that all around me. I saw it and when governments just paying you to sit on your butt. They're incentivizing laziness. And I think it's, I think it's a really bad place to put people. So I think America has to have a mechanism in place to help people. But that has to push them to do better and not force them into a position that they're stuck forever. I can say that. Well, moving to the book and this is one of the things with all of your life experiences and seeing how you're conservative, you know, you work in politics, you work in corporate crisis issues. Why the book? What prompted you to put down these into your book? Yeah, so, you know, we have one of the largest Republican digital agencies in the country at a few years ago. We were picked up by sea world because they realized they were in a political fight after being blackballed by PETA after that blackfish documentary went viral on Netflix. And from that, we started picking up a bunch of corporations home shopping network and Sears, Sears and K Mart. They were going through their bankruptcy home shopping network and QVC as they were going through their merger. And then a whole bunch of folks I can't even mention because we were helping them through crisis and I was under NDA. But then I ended up getting canceled for some things that I tweeted and I had a bunch and I want to brewery here in town. I'm a serial entrepreneur, not just in politics. I own two breweries. And I said something on Twitter that forced a group of people to start protesting my brewery. We were on the front page of the newspaper for three days. And I was able to overcome my quote cancellation. But then I started seeing that this cancel culture movement went from corporations and celebrities and politicians. And it started going down. It's like the normal individual, like a cop who did the wrong thing, or the teacher who said the wrong thing. So I decided to write the book so that I could give lessons to not just the people at the top, like the celebrities, but the people in the middle, like the small business folks or mid business folks that might find themselves in a position like I was in or even the individual like the copper that teacher. I wanted to give them some guidelines to help them survive because I'm telling you at someone who's gone through it. It's really emotional. It's really hard. We don't talk about what it does to the person and to their family. And I think that's really sad. But like I said earlier, we're all just humans going through a human experience. We occasionally screw up.

I can understand for me, Keith, why GM is doing what they're doing and I don't know that I have much of an issue with it considering the number. All right. So let's get into it. Okay. Apparently, GM has asked some of their Cadillac lyric reservation holders to sign a non disclosure agreement. Define some. I think it was around 20 people, yes, out of all of their reservations. And they've exchanged for that NDA. They get $5500 discount. Right. And that's it. The NBA says they can't talk to anybody outside of GM about their experience. That is correct. Okay. Yeah. Now let's go back to what you were saying. Which is you don't have a problem with this per se. I'm not trying to put words in your mouth. Just right, carry on. Right. I don't have a problem with this per se. Only in the sense and I believe that there may be some language within the NDA that here's who has the bigger problem. The NHTSA has the bigger problem because they fear that they will not be getting adequate information in regards to potential safety issues that might be going on with these vehicles. But as long as there's language within those NDAs that allows the NHTSA and I think the GM needs to think about this that allows them to basically have some oversight over the NDA, what's in the agreement and what information can and can not go out. I think GM is wise not to let their technology get out there. This is sort of like what Keith and I have been saying for the longest time, most automakers are doing live polling with these vehicles. Right.

John Zmirak Describes the Left's Desire for a Hacienda Society
"What is Starbucks, Microsoft, Google, the World Economic Forum, the Ivy League Pope Francis woke evangelicals, what are they all doing together, whether they are conscious of it or not. They are trying to unfound the United States of America as you and I know it and replace it with something that's sociologists call a hacienda society. Hacienda NDA. A hacienda is something in Latin America, especially, but in any society that's an oligarchy. The hacienda is represents the one to 2% that have all the money and all the power and all the influence, but in these societies, it also has all the real legal rights. If you're not part of that 1%, you don't even really have legal protection. You don't have free speech. You don't have gun rights to self defense. You don't have rights to assembly. You don't have religious freedom. You don't have any of the things in the Bill of Rights in the Bill of Rights, which are natural rights that God gave us. And the constitution was simply meant to guarantee. In a hacienda society, the only real false human beings are the aristocrats living in the hacienda and the guards working for them out in the guard. Okay, but if people can't remember the word hacienda, ladies and gentlemen, let's make it super clear. There are effectively two ways of seeing the universe. One of them leads to American style, self government, liberty. It is imperfect, but it can be beautiful and it has been beautiful and it can get better. And it comes out of a biblical worldview, the dignity of human beings, the respect for the idea of freedom for a real understanding of what liberty is, it's God honoring. The other view says effectively, there is no God. We can be as gods. It's all about power. We reject truth. We reject the God who claims to be truth. Both of these views lead in different directions.

"The next topic I wanted to mention was general dysfunction of the company. And this is something I've complained about quite a bit, but even this narrative is starting to get shaky because of all the change ups that have happened recently. So the one complaint I had for the companies that they pursued indications without really planning to file an NDA. And the one that stuck out for me was dedifferentiated liposarcoma. Now this wasn't a massive patient population, but the company spent millions and millions of dollars trying to get these trials together and get selling xor through the pipeline in this way. And so when they decided to not do an NDA for this, it just seems like management really has no plan and they don't really know what they're doing or what their goals are. Another complaint that I see often and is one that I also share is that management continues to sell their stock. And what you often would rather see is that management is buying on the open market, but what we see in Carrie farm are stock sales from management members, and this is actually true today. I think on fin tell I received some notifications recently of a number of insider stock sales. And now, this doesn't have to be bearish for the company, oftentimes compensation packages will include a.

"You are urging universities to sign up to this pledge. You're not forcing them. There's no element of compulsion. Why not? Well, this is in effect a moral contract. And I don't think any vice Chancellor is going to turn around looking in the eyes and not do this. This is the right thing to do. So some universities have already been doing this, but for decades, they'd never in fact used NDAs for sexual harassment and bullying. But some have. One case is one too many. And as I said, I'll be holding them to account. I am aiming to have the vast majority of university signed up to this within the year. I'll be personally calling by his chances speaking to vice chancellors and ensuring that we get action on this. And we've got a track record of using this kind of mechanism. When we look at the IHRA, definition, we started with, I think it was about 20 signed up to that definition. We now have over a hundred. So I will be ensuring that I do get action on this very topic to give students and staff that sense of reassurance when they are looking at universities, whether to study there or to work there. And that is fully transparent. And we're working with partners like can't buy my silence, who are going to be hosting the full list of universities that do sign up to this. So university that don't make it to that list, students could in effect vote with their feet and not choose to go to that university. Well, I wanted to ask you what happens if universities don't sign up? You're basically passing that on to students saying don't go there rather than actually enforcing it with universities themselves. No, that's not the case. I'm going to be working hand in hand with universities. And that's also look at the reaction this has had so far pre launch. It's had a very, very positive reaction. It's been welcomed by the sector, eager to be part of this, who understand who've listened to the likes of can't by my science have listened to the horrendous reports that came out last year from everyone's invited and decided that we need to take action on this. So we're going to work together and ensure that within a year the vast majority of universities have signed up to this to protect students and staff amongst against this really dangerous practice. The government has talked tough on NDAs for quite a while now, but it hasn't produced the legislation to back it up. Just to remind our listeners, it was back in March 2019 that the government proposed a new law restricting the use of NDAs and it was in June that year that the House of Commons instructed the women and equalities committee to research and publish a report. The outcome of that report the recommendation was that the government should act an outlaw the use of NDAs in cases of discrimination. Why hasn't the government done that? We did also consult widely on this topic in the use of NDAs can actually be the right thing to do for the intellectual property and alike. So it's not a case that NDA should just be blanket banned. So it is a little bit more nuanced and a little bit more complicated. That's why we had to consult widely. And I know that my counterpart minster Scully in the department of base is working hard on this topic. But what I'm saying is, we're not going to allow it to continue for a day longer in universities, where we need to protect our students. We need to protect our staff..

And we launch around fashion week, which is obviously a place where vogue and GQ obviously have a lot of permission to be. But for us, it's about taking franchises and formats. For example, like with vogue, beauty secrets, which has been a really successful franchise across our owned and operated on YouTube. And then taking that format to a new platform like TikTok and seeing how we could optimize it differently. And so I would say you're going to see a lot more innovation we launched some of these innovative strategies that are on the new front stage last year that played out like Met Gala live. We have the red carpet, Vanity Fair, live stream coming up for the very first time. This march. And so one of the things that we've done to really accelerate this is we've developed a tool that's actually been great for our marketers under NDA called our cultural calendar where all of 2022, we have our most innovative brand IP that allows.

We're voting on amendment after amendment Most of this is going for the nda. So this is one of those wild weeks where vote after vote Most of them are democrat amendments. Because as you know they usually don't take republican amendments and some members of the freedom caucus have said that the nda should not be voted on by republicans until we see certain other actions taken by the white house. What's the state of play is going to go through. What's the latest number. Well there's a lot of us in the freedom caucus that are taking a stand against it we are. We're against drafting our daughters strapping young women. Especially when there's seventeen million young men eighteen to twenty five already signed up the flex services and our current Active duty military forces or at one point three million. And we're not even at war so there's no need to even be talking about drafting women at sample ridiculous. Of course we know women are capable and they're equal but we're just not into drafting our daughters our our wives and and don't think that that's that's necessary.

They were at that event they were at that event And then britney song that's like that's out of all the birds my favorite decides to remember it was called by till the world ends or keep on dancing.

Get somebody <Speech_Male> to sign up to a <Speech_Male> confidentiality agreement. <Speech_Male> Because that's the legal mechanism <Speech_Male> to do it. <Speech_Male> Be question marks bone foreseeability <Speech_Male> ba- <Speech_Male> questions about whether they actually <Speech_Male> changed behavior. <Speech_Female> I think institutions <Speech_Male> need to see <Speech_Male> risk and abroad away <Speech_Male> though because yes. <Speech_Male> There's the <Speech_Male> legal risks that somebody's <Speech_Male> going to <Speech_Female> reveal to the <Speech_Male> world that they've been through a <Speech_Male> difficult case <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Female> they think the universities <Speech_Female> handled it. <Speech_Male> But <Speech_Female> i think that there's the <Speech_Female> wider risk of people <Speech_Male> just seeing as having <Speech_Male> something to hide <Speech_Male> even when you don't <Speech_Male> so. I <Silence> think as i said in <Speech_Male> the blog <Speech_Male> i wrote my feeling. <Speech_Male> Is you need to be <Speech_Male> able to explain to <Speech_Male> people <Speech_Male> what you have done <Speech_Male> to deal with <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> this really really very difficult. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Scenario <Speech_Male> set of scenarios <Speech_Male> about sexual <Speech_Male> harassment <Speech_Male> rather <Speech_Male> than relying on the ability <Speech_Female> to to hide it. <Speech_Female> I think legally <Speech_Male> that's always going <Speech_Male> to be something that's recommended <Speech_Male> but actually in practice <Speech_Male> it doesn't work. Let's <Speech_Male> find a better way <Speech_Male> of explaining <SpeakerChange> what <Speech_Male> universities are doing <Speech_Male> here. Just want to pick <Speech_Male> up.

"nda" Discussed on The Wonkhe Show - the higher education podcast
"Writes. The spotter universities minister has popped up this week writing to universities with her views on as slater. What is all this about so as you say michelle. Donilon has written to all higher education providers about the use of nondisclosure agreements specifically in sexual harassment cases which she has described as unacceptable and suggested that legislation is forthcoming to prevent their use. Now obviously the use of nda is something that has been the subject of much discussion over recent times. We know that sector agency such as the office for the independent adjudicator aren't keen on the use of nda's but we know that many universities continue to use them. I suppose for me. There are two questions that we really need to ask ourselves i is. What is the risk that we're trying to guard against by the use of confidentiality agreements. And sometimes it feels like a knee jerk reaction. Nobody's actually thought about risk in that. Context is just yes if reaching a settlement there should be an nda and then the second thing is even if even if the risk suggests that there is a threat to confidentiality. Is this agreement going to help. Are there better things we could do to actually protect the institution. And i wrote about this probably a couple of years ago now for one key. Reread it last night's until actually a lot of the still stunts good. You know if you confidence in the decisions you're making you need to be able to explain them to people. There's no point hoping they will stay quiet because very little does these days. There is one area where i think. It's quite interesting to think about confidentiality. Though and we've seen this increasingly where complaints of sexual harassment he's made an institutional processes gone through and in the end. The complaints not upheld. And then you have the person who was the subject to the complaint kind of putting pressure on the institution to say. Well how are you going to protect me from ongoing discussion and disclosure of these allegations. Now that you've been through the process and concluded they're not justified. And i think sometimes that's what institutions are trying to protect as much their own reputation but the interests of people who've been through a process and the processes concluded that the the the allegations are upheld. And i don't really know what the ministers answer to that is you know how do we give him the rights to free speech at cetera of everybody involved in this process. How do we stop continued. Allegations being repeated once the process have concluded because we need finality in some way. Don't we the the the processes to say this now over a decision has been reached. That rarely happens to be. Is something peculiar to universities gary on head. She thinking the use of da's always this sort of organizational behavior. I mean i don't know. But i can certainly in terms of schools and colleges or certainly the legislation that michelle donlan referred to in her letter. It actually applies much more broadly than university. So the intent is to reduce the use of mda's in workplace settings across across a whole range of issues that might be really be relating things like whistleblowing as sexual harassment. So i think i think what that legislation marks is a shift in kind of public attitudes and the kind of general practice. Run the da's which suggest which of course universities would be part of. I think what's interesting about. The letter is is that donilon says that. Actually there wasn't an intention to include students in that donna signal that she's going to ask for options as to as to high students might be included in that legislation which is forthcoming ngo. An hopefully will show up at some point in the course of this parliament. But there's also there's also a question about why michelle is writing to universities and i think. Oh yes definitely and whether that's because my first thought isn't it great. This means is going to be on the puck us because we can talk about the legality of ministers machine adversities and single. Here's how you should whether or not it's the law and i think that's completely that that that was my first thought when i look at what is this nonsense but then i read the letter and i thought hang on a minute. This is a female minister met with the leaders of everyone's invited and at anyone who's been on that website you have to spend five minutes on their before you're crying for your keyboard because my goodness the suffering the horror that is going on and i'm the kind of an understeer and electric suggests that universities should be it should should look at the austin review of sexual violence and harassment in schools and an adopt that kind of mentality of we have to assume. It's happening. it is so prevalent we after happening. Even if it's not being reported and take steps appropriately and that's very much in line with universities you case position. I think well although obviously cannot speak for them. And i do wonder whether this is just an example of a minister. Saying i don't have a lever available to me right now. This is the only leaf. I have so all i can do is urge and and sort of props props props in that spirit although i realize it also it is also pretty. Xm and i'm really curious but he cannot come back on that little mug so so i think that's absolutely right there'd be some my loyalty. Hackles are always raised secretaries of state minister start writing directly to two universities and in the past i suppose what would have happened was they would have written. A hefty in hefty would have produced a circular letter saying to everybody and we would have found that less less questionable in its legality and says it says something about the ongoing role of the in all this and. Why isn't the minister. Talking to the first thing. I really want you to raise these issues. And that's partly because the has sort of set stall out to say we're not going to get involved in those positive kind of change conversations that's for providers to do so it has left a bit of a bit of a gap But i think the reason that michelle donilon feels able to do. Because there's now a well established pattern over. We've had kevin williamson writing we've damian hinds writing and so even though this is that classic legal principle of hard cases make bad law absolutely in this case. You can see why minister might want to do this. But it set against the background of increasing direct correspondence from ministers which can't be ignored by which institutions field. They can't ignore process in the same way that they might the range of the guidance they get from other sources. That's the risk. It's really hard as an institution to know what to do with this. Yes you're not blige tax on but you're sort of this is sort of moral pressure when it comes from someone empire. That's actually a responsible isn't it there. Is that risk that you know we get the kind of particular interest of ministers driving institutional behavior rather than at sort of nuanced approach. That looks at all the issues that institutions have got to deal with across in a more objective. Way that's my that's my worry about it and it feels really harsh to say that when it is a subject that clearly requires attention and it's very easy to say well. It doesn't really matter but you know you've got you've got to question. Belonging term trend here certainly wouldn't have sympathy for even if and feels very very strongly of admissions. I certainly wouldn't have the same sympathy for him. If we're taking writing to universities on that basis it is because of the issue. That i kind of do feel my heartstrings. Tocqueville on emissions law actually prevents him from doing that. Although i mean definitely they stray over the boundaries of that plenty of times they do indeed and yeah as long as we. Don't allow our heartstrings. To get talked. That's often deputy but Yeah absolutely. There are topics that we've just got. This is not an appropriate way to deal with however much it needs dealing with. This is not the way to switch struck by what you're saying about these days. Come from it. Sounds like a sort of bureaucratic juggernaut or kind of matra process you go through these processes and then the nda standard at the end of it is is kind of the problem that this is sort of. This is sort of emerge out of russia over than proactive decision. Making.

"Latest. You cast data as was widely expected. Numbers are up for. You catholic this year after the thirty june deadline. About four percent overall this is testament to the continued attractiveness of higher education speaks richly the lack of other options. The young people right now and the pressure to the system already strapped for physical capacity on that we can see evidence of high tech providers becoming slightly more selective offer making number up as much as applications so offer rates are much lower than in previous years. More eighteen year olds in china have apply to uk universities eighteen-year-old from wales or northern. And there's an utterly inexplicable peak of mature student applications from nigeria. This comes along significant collapse in applications from europe expected but still disappointing to see. The summer will not bring a repeat of last year's bleeding the good news for access the numbers of syrup for the powerful quintile one but the proportion is down. We're not seeing any evidence of nineteen year olds having declined places last year. Only to apply this year. Reapplication rates are down at that age in the uk. The trend toward studying subjects lead to korea's shown their most pivotal during the pandemic continues. More people want to become mets nurses other medical health professionals at teachers. But there's also a growth in social sciences applications. Perhaps people want to know why as well as how conversely the small drop in the proportion looking to study business and language. At least the top level continues. They're painful decline. I keep coming back to the physical limitations of another pompeo. Diversities have the number of teaching rooms lamps and lecture theatres needed to educate to record breaking co pots while keeping them safe from a resurgent pandemic. the rash providers announcing more blended provision for september. May have this issue in mind is certainly a trend to watch now the scales and post sixteen education bills. Be making its way through parliament. And we've been thinking a lot about the skills agenda and universities role in debbie talks for thinks about so since the skills white paper was released back in january before that stretching back to the ogre review and twenty nine thousand nine. We've been thinking about some kind of quite key questions. Because i think the first thing to say is it skills. The skills agenda is it is really just the english version of a wider trend. That we're seeing across the uk wales and scotland scene. We see movements in both areas week and globally so across the road people thinking more more lifelong learning more focus on skills and kind of employer relevant sorts of education more technology concern about the costs of having of of developing a highly skilled population. An addressing skills gaps and different countries are preaching in different ways. This is just the english flavor. And i think that's sort of this this agendas of inextricable from that kind of broader resettling and disruption of education and the pro purpose it sort of starts and twenty four centuries. So we're looking at the skills agenda in the context of some of those bigger trends and asking us both kind of really high big. Are these changes. How much is something. That is kind of new new and different for universities that they need to prepare for. What the impacting university strategy. And and just how disruptive willett actually be. because of course you've got lots of people saying this is going to be incredibly disruptive for universities and the three year degrees we know it may make make me disappear shrink significantly and other saying this is pretty much business as usual. you know. maybe we can ramp activity here there so. Kpmg have set up some of those arguments for us in terms of the scale of disruption. And they've done some thinking internally about that. I've been talking to some university leaders eater to try and understand home nervous. They are and what sorts of changes putting in place. The other side of this of course is about some practical concerns. One is about further and higher education collaborating and places and we knew that this is such such an important agenda and trying to kind of understand what what might be materially different as a result of this agenda and we've had them on milton former schools. Minister writing without in the site and likewise. If all if any of this is going to work we're going to see people. Accessing learning throughout their lives and accumulating credit and taking different modules and different providers. We will need to sort of credit. Transfers decays written a piece of whether that's actually going to be possible and why why why why there might be any reason to believe that having looked this many many times in the past that it'll be different this time so all of that is on the site an undocumented our listeners attention you've long been a champion of further education and higher education collaborating more closely. Do do you think this is this presented to kick start that agenda. It definitely presents the opportunity whether it will actually be taken or not. I don't know they're all in the same way that debbie's just outlined all the other things that we've talked about for a long time. It hasn't happened collaborations. Clear are up there. There's a bit of me that feels however the it surely cannot be the case they in every other area of life there has been transformation and yet eight. She is going to carry on just the same as it was all. Almost the same as it was Decades ago things are going to have to change. And there's something quite exciting about some of the things that i think. Universities are already thinking about In terms of how. What could change in the flexibility on the innovation that we might start to see but i think about two point that richard made to the tail end of the conversation which is a lot of that would be much more achievable if there was a sense of trust between universities and governments and universities were seen as parts of the solution rather than where i think some parts of government than which is very much part of the problem. So i think that's the big challenge universities. How do we move from where we are where we are seen as the thing that needs fixing to actually the thing that can fix so many of all skills can conundrums. I think that's the conversation. I'd be very interested in having if i was the sort of senior leader in a university. This this is what struck me. When when i sat down with with various vice-chancellors an all from a range of different types of institutions old really quite invested in delivering the right skills for their regions and meeting the needs of students as you as you would expect but also extremely due to the school's agenda very much sort of saying you know we're here we're ready to do this already doing bunch of things in this area and it seemed to me that actually in many ways. Unical universities are economists particularly. There's great local relationships in place a very clear strategy plan to some extent. Universities will kind of continue to flourish and do that. Well in if the government really wants the agenda to land and to be impactful to achieve the transformation at seeks. It's really missing a trick. Not working with universities and i think there is this sense i think of it given the given the scale of disruption having lots of individual universities responded to their local regions is one thing but could could government officer find the energy to props muster bits of a kind of. Let's bring the further and higher education sectors together. Let's work across the piece. Let's think about this at the kind of macro level and and really get behind an agenda team supposedly. It's really frustrating. Isn't what seems to be happening. And richard the if you stay to this to go by the demand for traditional three full time. Undergraduate degrees isn't slowing down.

It's walkies editor. W w higher the week do we movement really when we were all sitting in the just watching watching the ball hit the back of the net. It was incredible okay. My highlight of the week was It took me to the park on on monday. And it briefly didn't rain for you okay. Let's start the week. With the big reopening of society and thinking had to september the government has issued guidance. About how university should proceed. It's fairly like touch. It should be said richard. What's what's happening here. Yes in fact smoke so well as wonky listeners know the government announced his plans for lifting restrictions this week and in terms of harvard. Chikatilo gavin williamson. Made a statement in parliament tuesday. The confirmed restrictions on in-person teaching and compulsively mosque wearing on university. Campuses in england will end. And this was a company as you mentioned my guidance which says that institutions and i quote should not put in place measures which limits the teaching and learning outcome for students or significantly limit. The wider activities offered by the provider. Or just want to say that of a couple of months ago casey's low and the vaccine wallet steaming ahead many of us had obviously hoped this would not be a joyous occasion. Be one which some form of certainty and clarity to our lives but given this is now happening. With rising cases due to the tulsa variant that continues to obsolete be significant amount of uncertainty and nervousness and clearly questions remain for universities on how they operate in the autumn given. Some issues double jabbed by then and. I'm sure we're gonna get into the discussion about all of this sector. Should do and so on commentary around online learning this week but for me. What really matters. And i'm sure it does to all wonky. Listeners is putting students. First terms of the mafia in terms of restrictions young people who've been impacted the most innovative absolutely amazing and putting the needs of others over their own needs and whatever we decide to do going forward. We really need to put their learning and their experiences. I i mean it seems to me like this is just the latest of extremely long line of examples of the government making all the sectors problem when it comes to to covid and how to proceed. I mean yeah you could say that the thing that The thing that the thing that i think is interesting that changes is. Is this question about what happens if you arrive. So from from july nineteenth if you have a job new longer be required to self isolate if are either under eighteen or you have had your your two nations so yeah. This is kind of pocket of students who may arrive at university. Without having had their chief explanations the thing i noticed actually was s people in that situation the four four month kind of grace period which to get that job so i think this actually quite kind goal here is obviously just to get as many many jobs in arms as possible and i think quite smart to put that pit that incentive in place in that way although maybe some here forever are unable to receive the job and then they're going to need special care and attention but yes i mean i think i think universities have learned by the government will not be rushing to the rescue other the best issuing guidance. To say you know you you you must make the make the best of this show as you possibly can become a whole thing about blended learning and tricia fees this week in the media. Isn't it because i mean long. Refrain in in some parts of the media that says of online learning is second rate to in person learning or to the where it should be. It should be cheaper somehow. Even the obviously doesn't make sense. Anyone who works university understands that is not cheaper to deliver deliver deliver it all online meter. It definitely isn't mark. And i suppose for me. The conversation this we can issuing guidance etcetera has really reinforced the rather dispiriting trends of not being able to have nuanced conversations about incredibly complex issues. And so if you take the issue around blended learning for years we've been talking about the fact that the future is almost inevitably going to involve some more elements of use of technology to to teach and learn because every other area of life has done that. Why wouldn't e and of course what happened. Last year was a real acceleration of old art and in some cases emergency reaction to to to not necessarily plan to one but underpinning was this overarching trends so to suddenly say well you know we must go about to face to face. You mustn't be limiting any face to face. Access does present blended as a kind of second rate option second rate and therefore cheaper and none of that is actually sensible or true and we should be able to have a much more nuanced conversation. But i could go on. The guidance raises all sorts of issues where we should be having nuance conversations. Which are not permissible. It seems anymore. I think the i think the really tricky thing for universities here is making that really helpful distinction if it is possible for students between the things that might be done because of covid reducing transmission and kind of in a sense of cutting your sit your cloth and the things that might be done for pedagogical reasons because it actually leads to better learning experience and rhetoric comes for students and i think we're in the worst possible world of universities have been thinking really hard carefully but what this next normal looks like what kind of new blended looks like kind of use technology to enhance learning experience. But it's coming across as if they're saying. This is our second rate offer. The students are desperate to be told. The experience will be filling enriching this year. Because they've they've really struggled in the last sixteen months. So it's it's really it's part is partly a joke but it's also partly it's partly a sequencing gel but but what can be what what you know not not saying that from september we will be ruling. This marvelous new blended learning environment. Because as much as that might be the hope students will here is we. You're getting something that is second rate because of covid.

Scooter Braun Comments on 'Confusing' Feud With Taylor Swift
"Scooter braun whose justin bieber's manager. You might not know his name. But he's a big big manager in hollywood. He's confused about his feud of taylor swift. That's how you know his name. He bore taylor swift's stors all her recordings. I think it was six of albums. Taylor went absolutely crazy. Some people say rightly so now. Scooter is to say the following quote. I regretted. it makes me sad. That taylor had this reaction. I don't know what story she was told. I asked to sit down with several times meat. She refused and he offered to sell her her back catalogue. But she's saying not quite so fast so in november when the story broke she said that brown basically did this behind her back and she wasn't allowed to buy her own music. She said the following quote. So i would have to sign a document that would silence me forever before i could even have a chance to beat on my own. Work is crazy that she didn't own her own work. Legal team at the time told her is absolutely not normal to sign an nda like that and nondisclosure agreement and said basically this is the type of document you get someone to sign after sexually assaulting them and paying them off and she said that she would never sign it. These masters were not for sale to me. I think taylor here. I'm not sure. I believe scooter. And even if cutest telling the truth this is not gonna help you. Stop. it's over you did this. You made a lot of money. He's already sold them again so he's made hundreds of millions of dollars taylor swift there sort of winning too.

Riana definitely definitely okay. Because i think she would be cool to. Can you believe it. that's my take. She's probably cool but the celebrity to like party with. I feel like yes. That's a great answer. The answer my stealing twitter medium. Now my favorite oldies artists brianna. Everything she's released is years and years old. We're here only grow in the world on easy listening Such a yacht classic now. Yes okay which one would you sign an nda. Louis oh god so hard but let me just say. I don't really find myself. Pining for celebrity men really You tied in the ada. Jane fonda for sure i excuse me i think tank founded would fucking me if i put it on our foreign. You'd be yeah yeah heard. Doubts are only getting stronger throughout. i don't know in that case. I don't really have an answer for that. I don i. Nobody is coming to mind mike. I'm that desperate for section. Feel distant. Or stranger elusive. I believe it's a social thing. You should have it naturally and without paperwork involved. Oh i don't even know what. I was saying straight edge past run for ricky martin. Okay well fabulous. Nasa by the way. Can i say there should be a word. Maybe a german word for when you hear a pop song that used to be ubiquitous. That you never hear anymore. I heard livin la vida loca recently. I'm like once upon a time. You could not obviously avoid that song and now you never hear it. I felt the same way about. Ida's heard havana by communica recently. When do you hear that song anymore. And it used to be every day all the time. Yeah but i feel like you need to create like time distance. Because i feel so so recent but i i do agree with you. It needs to have a word it needs to be like music freud or something. You know like yellow right now. Wouldn't you be surprised. Yeah yeah yeah it was shocked last night What i heard can't stop the feeling playing right exactly which which can stop the feeling justin timberlake. Now yeah because. I feel like they just stopped for a bit and then it played again. But you know what i wanna point out. He ate the girls on that song. Okay unfortunately he nibble the girl girl. The girl go rish. The girls had can't stop the feeling. Okay that was you everything. Okay girl. the girl's back to school sale at kohl's and they were hungry. I was in a car with a young man and he just he casually put unhappy around tucked enrolled out of the car. There was no way terrorists up. I would think that i was about to be taken to be murdered about that. Maybe lupita neon goes most impressive performance when she got up and danced to feroze happy. And it didn't look at all like not not a song that makes you want to dance in a way that belongs outside of a white wedding actually final answer. I would would sign an nda to hang out with and or has sex with tom cruise. I may die. I may die. But i think it'd be worth it well. The paperwork would be part of the kink in that situation. Because you know he's just within a castle within a tower within a whatever so yeah you gotta fight like ludwig von bowser to get on copa but yes yes king all right well if you're a celebrity who like any of us sign an nda chess.

"Us. They were fucked baby but an increasing number of celebrities are resorting to as for their potential lovers decide and it's constantly being talked about on like instagram accounts. I wa There was recently a buzz feed piece That dove into The world of celebrity in a is for the sexual partners written by haley lieberman. What do we think about this. Well it's to me. What's mostly weird is that it's not the information is coming out now. There's always been a standard version of this throughout the ages. You know what i mean. Every you can't talk about for instance. Tom cruise without bringing up the amount of paperwork. It takes to even know tom cruise right. They wanna party with the crews have to sign a nondisclosure right katie ashkenazi bony adia about signing some paperwork. Yeah call kidman and tell us about your marriage bitch. You think she's trying to get sued icon. You'll see her again. Yeah honestly pretty raw meat. Raw there are certain things we reference constantly. Ira me specifically and one of them is nicole. Kidman seventy three questions. So you need just had this all memorized back to keep everybody including you. All right i also am the elizabeth taylor a hd video yes That's a good one if you memorize. Victoria beckham seventy three questions. You know why. Sometimes i'll just turned to my friends and say aides yes. That's why you did that. What's the one thing was the one thing that you wish you could get rid of the world and she turns around it says aids. Yeah she says it kind of blunter than that. Like a reminder. These answers are pre written. Yes i will say that. I'm of two minds about celebrity sex in da's one. I would never sign one. That's why i feel like i. It depends who it is baby. Yeah i just wanna know if like every young timothy came trouncing around and want to do and there was paperwork involved. You're saying maybe picked the wrong person. I don't know who you are sexually attracted to. I'm actually truckers timothy shower bay in theory in theory. I actually more attracted to his fashion sets. You can't fuck his clothes which might not even be his fashion sense. Yeah yeah who's his stylus right. Okay what little nigga he got. You know crown heights. Who who's like him up on the kids pulling his all. This sweat equity car heart all day. Eight reading mr shots lead pieces timothy and a new balance but also. I'm of the mind that getting people to sign one seems fine to me because we are in a world where like been mentioned two more right like any celebrity like has any random encounter. What someone like. This person has to the internet so like right about their interaction with that person. And i think it's weird so yeah i would not want people talking about like what we do in the bedroom. I have two things about it as well. The first one being that. I don't mind if people ask friendy. As if i would sign one depending on what we're doing and who i'm with but it's the matter of when along the night you asked me to sign an nda. Are we inebriated. Have things are sexually. Has attention been highly like there's another level of power dynamic and abuse that could happen in that signing of the paperwork so that's an interesting to it. I absolutely agree with that. I think that if are signing as it should be just like the paperwork seen it fifty shades of grey exactly when it's called stoic. Callous like here's what about this provision okay. I'm not doing that etc. i think. That's oh this this anal claws take it out. Ok moving forward. That is interesting. I mean it is legal paperwork so it does sort of feel like you should have a lawyer. Therefore it like duchess. Give me an india. As i'm walking into your home like i wanna read this shit. I wanted to when i can't talk about right all right. Well this has got more difficult for me. And i'm now thinking i would go the distance for shall we say okay. Hercules okay justin long and drew barrymore also wondering now because there's a culture of nda's and that has changed like even five or six years ago. When we found out that charlie sheen was potentially giving other women and the as design before sex it was like oh gross. What are you doing. But now when beyond say has nda and she's making tiffany haddish. Sign it before they go hang out is like okay. What are y'all doing this very dependent on who has the and what. The culture of that. A person's identity includes well that stuff where it's like you find out that someone say face and that makes me think about just like the random nights where we hang out with our friends right and like someone does something that's goofy or like something like becomes like a story that we constantly reference and i guess if we're all celebrities a friend does that you don't want that story circulating so it becomes like a thing that's like impaired six or something right So that's why you signed an nda that makes me wonder like somebody who hangs out with a lot of celebrities. I mean it is a celebrity themselves like is busy phillips constantly signing nda's just based on the people she's around. I wanna know does show maker assign one. That's part of the question. Yeah drink here's an nda. I have ever been asked to sign one with anyone that i've hung out with for the record so i signed multiple india's. I've only seen them on. Have gone on game shows. Because you're you can't give away the the result of what happened. yeah mine. i'm for hanging out minor like marvel additions where i'm the secretary and they're like. Don't tell anyone that we're making a heavy. Nda to go into think about marvel without signing. I don't even think i was supposed to tell people. I wrote that black panther tag that black panthers thing that reminds me up when we head cat demings on and she talked about having having to go for her audition for i think it was mondo vision far away from building and then was like carded there by a mysterious interloper person..

Yeah because the active drinking coffee itself feels so productive because it starts slapping your brain around. I love you've taken on this advice column persona and i actually think it's very wonderful because i feel like there's a dearth of like advice comes around truly at least once for like where people right i feel like i remember advice calls from the newspaper when we were younger like the dear abby and stuff like we weren't reading that at least i wasn't right i sometimes read them and i'm like i don't know what's going on with this middle-age divorced woman in arkansas.

Reduce No-shows, Fill the Schedule, and Improve Patient Experience with Michele Perry
"Back to the outcomes rockets. All marquez here. Today i have the privilege of having michelle. Perry on the podcast. She is. The ceo of relations has sast based patient centered. Engagement company that utilizes a modern and mobile first approach to improve patient and provider communication. Michelle perry has almost thirty years of experience in software and health technology an undergraduate degree from the wharton school at the university of pennsylvania and her nda from harvard business school. Just the the important topic around how we communicate patients effectively. And how do we do that at scale. It's going to be a great talk and michelle super excited to have you join us today. Thanks for having me excited to be here absolutely and and so before we dive into the awesome way. You guys engage patients at relations. Talk to us a little bit more about you. Michelle wu spires your work and healthcare the patient. You know really. This truly has to be about the patience to have been easier way to access healthcare This pandemic has shed light on. The fact that truth helped get a truly is about the patients. And that's why you know. I joined a company named relation relating to the patient and focusing on the patient. How do we make it easier for the patient because anything related to health care is high and so why don't we make it easy. Yeah and i think the nature of kind of how healthcare works and fortunately that it's complex And the need for that expertise of simplifying and getting a message to the right person at the right time is critical so michelle talked to us about how relations is adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Exactly what you just said you still my words saw. It's all about getting the right Right message to the right person at the right time. And you know the industry's been a little too focused on patient portals and just dumping information they're figuring out the patient would find the information and it's just not working you know we need to make it easier both for the practices and health systems to make it easy for their patients to access healthcare. And we need to do it in a way. That patients are use to communicate. Say and we all carry this phone You know there are a few people in the country maybe not for the most part people have a phone kind. You know in their pants pocket or in the hand of something all day. So how can we make it very easy using that mobile device to get them just that right information and not a data dump just the right information at the right time. Yeah and so there's a flow you know. There's there's a step by step process that kind of we go through when we get care. There's a scheduling. There's there's actually going to see the clinician where you wait. I guess there's a lot of waiting and cars now with with the pandemic reminders etc. So there's a lot of touch points that potentially league we could miss and so talked a little bit about what you feel makes relations special and different than what's there today. Yeah so you know. Unfortunately healthcare has so many rules and regulations Starting with that introducing some of this technology to be patient facing can be really non thing and then you add all all the communications laws which tcp a of the can spam and. This really seems way too. Risky move forward and health care. So that's where many practice of just put it in puerto new best enough but the adoption and usage of portals. It's just really low. So what we focused on is making it just easy to get the critical information at that point in time. Whether it's about an appointment to make sure that you know it and confirm it and we have best practices where we combine own email and chat messages over the course of five three one day to get the best response rate and to get people if they can't make it you know to cancel reschedule and get them back on the calendar that you can get waitlist filled spots that they laughed and moving all of that so really combining all these with one platform that can make this really productive for the practice which would make it productive for the practice can make it easy for their patients totally.

Just What is Going on at the Esports Stadium Arlington?
"Sports stadium in Arlington is the largest Esports arena in North America this week. They laid off almost all their employees including former president. Jonathan Ogden Josh. Whose been at the Helm of the company for the past few years made it clear. There was plenty of discontent behind the scenes. He tweeted quote would love to talk about what's happened a t Sports stadium and my fears what will happen with the new Direction off all the details but need to tread lightly from a legal perspective and quote in other tweets. He makes it even more clear that the exit wasn't pretty and that the new leadership represents a drastic change from the team driving the stage over the last few years. The new president will be luke Bauer Bauer doesn't have much experience in E Sports at all. Jacob Wolfe tweeted yesterday quote Bauer is a 2020 University of North Palm. Just graduate and Linkedin shows experience running a pressure washing company power is a friend of Luke lights means and quote. Luke is the other figure involved with the company and he's a bit controversial Thousand Years. Apparently the grandson of Ray Davis a majority shareholder of the Texas Rangers who helped launch the venue according to Woolf the current CEO of Esports Arena Arlington is Neil Lyman a minority shareholder for the Rangers. And if that name doesn't ring a bell, here's a refresher Infiniti sports and entertainment. That's the company that bought optic gaming back in 2017 and made an absolute mess of it before selling it off to a mortal's about two years later. Now, it seems like Neil is taking another popular is Esports institution run by a gaming veteran and moving it in a direction of wage earner nepotism Bauer didn't interview with Kevin hit at the Esports Observer, which I will link below in it hit questions Bauer about an odd tweet from Luke leitzman lights been again appears to be Bridge between Bauer and the Texas Rangers owners who are making the decisions here lights been tweeted and then deleted e Sports Stadium Arlington will not at any time require requests or inquire about the vaccination record of anyone. I will be buried in the ground before this changes. That's just an odd statement to make from a public health perspective, especially as venues have been one of the hardest-hit industries by the covid-19. Demek Bauer claims lights been does not have the authority to make that call but his entire page was wild with feared claims. And now as I searched for it today does not exist. So weitzman's actual role at the company is not clear whatsoever. Jonathan quotes who did the article and said there is much much more to this and is in no way being transcribed fully booked. It's not a fault of hit. Of course. It's a fault of Bauer who just is not going to provide the full situation. We likely won't know the full story until Jonathan's NDA expires, but for now given meals poor history. Use words to say the least. We certainly aren't going to give him the benefit of the doubt here.

But i'm not going to sit here and lie to you about any system or at least what i consider lies just going to tell you exactly what i think of them. And what. I what i like dislike and that doesn't mean you will feel the same way. It's just exactly what i think about these things. So just wanna prepare people.

Ps four stuff to your. Ps is definitely a little bit more cumbersome than the xbox so i don't know why but they have a lot of and this is something you'll see in the overall they have a lot of nested and bouncing menus where you're like over here then you're all the way over here that kind of stuff but got it set up and i moved my stuff over. And it's like you can take your ps four hard-drive plug it into your ps five. And i'm like that's awesome. I plug it in. My aren't showing games are showing saves. Aren't showing. I realize the only way to transfer it the way i want to is to plug it back into the. Ps four sign into that use gamertag. Then plug it into the ps five then. Transfer the stuff that. Ps five then go back to the ps four then plug it in then reload the other gamertag so some some of mine which have nda's on him some of my Games i have to play on a particular gamertag. That's like you know. Just jargon right it's like not me. It's not when i share with these guys because you'll be playing an nba game. That was a little rough. I got it figured out but it was just a little bit weird and just a word of warning man. Don't throw your. Ps four hard drive on your ps five and like reformatted or something because you might reformat another profile that's got some saves on there that you might wanna try transfer over but you get it up and running you look at this and i gotta say man. We've seen this you i. We've seen the videos. It's just a you. I don't care again it's just you i but it's not it's not great it is also missing some things like themes and stuff which i thought was weird because that was a big thing for sony. Those are missing currently But it's it's overall about the same really. I mean like you go up and then it's the same thing you see on the ps four. Your tiles right. The only thing is is they've now got two lines of like they've basically got two lines of tiles. You've got your top tiles and then when you open up game you've got your bottom tiles which includes a thing called a switcher which somebody else's mentioned so i don't want to talk about because i don't there's some stuff we can't cover right now but it allows for you to switch between games not quick resume by the way there's no such thing jumping in there playing it using that. Ui stuff you've seen. It's pretty much what it is if you like that kind of stuff that's great if you don't you're not gonna be able to get away from it but i just don't see a lot of people i don't know about you guys. I don't spend a lot of people in the. Us like a lot of time in the us. It's not something that i'm gonna. I'm gonna fred over so getting this all set up and going i another thing. It's cool to the touch like it's it's pretty much like the ps or like the xbox series. I saw some people say in both were overheating or both were hot and i saw some video. Ps five possibly on a shelf store shelf somewhere where maybe they had sort of contained it on purpose to see what would happen and basically says ups was hot. Turn you know like at adequate ventilation

Dr. Joan Palmiter Bajorek CEO of Women in Voice on Linguistics and its Place in Voice
"Know that's now I. I. Kinda WanNa. Go back a little bit because you're a linguist. And I mean I don't know how you characterize yourself to characterize yourself as a linguist. Yeah. Usually when people ask me say I consider myself primarily a linguist and researcher those are the two core identities that I inhabit most of the time. Okay. Great. So What originally got you interested in linguistics Yeah, I mean I think. I. Consider Myself as being linguist when I was little I like played with code things and you know babbling around I started taking French quote unquote foreign language. In Middle School, I would have been like eleven and. I just thought an unlocked, the coolest world's travel and culture, and you know my parents have always really prioritize travel instead of like buying a big screen TV's let's run off to Thailand So that kind of interesting language culture has always been there for me. Actually, my mom found his old document of mine working career stuff for high schoolers where you like plan out potential career directions. Apparently on this document, I circled linguistics French, and photography as the three things I was interested in which ended up being my undergraduate degrees, my master's degree. Topics right there. In my teenage years, I knew. That's perfect. Yeah. Well, maybe maybe we do. I. Say there's a sense that we ask college students to make decisions about the rest of their lives. You know it's such a young age but maybe we know at least some of us know much younger. I feel like I got really lucky I feel like. I. Don't necessarily know the names of the topics but I feel like there's a light at the end of the horizon that I'm walking towards at all times sometimes running a mostly walking in just knowing that directionality and honestly the privileged to be able to pursue the things that I'm so passionate about. Now given the you've spent so much time. Going into linguistics study research have you had time to keep up with your French photography? My I I taught French previously to pay the bills in my graduate studies and I worked in France between UNDERGRAD and graduate school. So I'm was very proficient I mean, my dad hopes one day become famous photographer. You know as a retirement career but no, I have A. Busy schedule today and those things take away backburner. Got It. Okay. So you started out French in photography you moved into linguistics and why don't you share with listeners? What some of the areas of study you focused initially and then how that evolved. Yes. So I don't masters in linguistics from UC Davis. And they did a really phenomenal job of forcing you to take all the courses. In the range of things I was always really interested in phonetics and sociolinguistics, but taking morphology and Syntax and typology natural language processing was of course it was very new at that time. And really. It's when I started actually studying to a link goes interfaces from a LP phonetics standpoint that I felt like I had a moment of like wait a minute. This is a big data multi-lingual back end. Used by millions of users worldwide. Like who is deciding what good enough means for the Audio You know At that time I focused a lot on ed tech but I think the multi lingual multi modal interfaces that I was looking at Babbel Rosetta. Stone presented at Rosetta Stone really thinking about the research that space blew my mind that was back in two, thousand, fourteen, two, thousand, fifteen. Yeah. So When you think about those systems because they've been around for a while and some of them very good is that a stone has been doing this a pretty high level for a long time before we had cloud computing to new redoing this office CDs. Because I remember. At least one of my daughters maybe both of them took a couple of full programs you know through. through his stump Are there elements of that that of of the language learning process? You think that help move the industry forward or was that always just sort of a fork in on its own I think. Educational Technology has such power especially in twenty twenty. You know anyone who has kids I don't finds this stuff wonderful I think Rosetta stone you're right I think back in the day was really innovative software I haven't seen significant innovation in the last decade I can't I'm under NDA can't tell you what I told her engineering team but my research that is public I mean the. The back end with they're doing the acoustics in the visuals that they show users and most users aren't linguists. An most users aren't fun additions like me. Or mostly incomprehensible. So I felt like there was a huge mismatch between what the back end was doing in the educational pieces of it. Could you actually learn and get better at your pronunciation from these tools? Right. So that's that's a critique on the application of the technology though correct? Yeah. Is opposed to the core technology in terms of being. Listen and. and. That's what I. Mike Critique is the scaffolding or like how it's structured could be significantly rated and their companies like Elsa and blue canoe that are doing the work to make it interpreted. Because we do have back ends that should be able to do this very well.
Crime Boss, James Whitey Bulger
"In the kitchen of seven ninety, nine east. Third Street in Boston Fifty Five Year Old Boston crime boss Whitey Bolger said across from John mcintire he felt nothing but hatred. He knew that McIntyre agreed to talk to the DA and there was nothing that Whitey loathed more than a rat. A cool breeze rattled the window on that day in November nineteen eighty-four McIntyre was handcuffed and chained to a chair. Whitey set his MAC ten machine pistol on the table and told him that they needed to talk. Knew, he was doomed. There was a reason why Whitey had become the kingpin of South Boston. Lording over the neighborhoods loansharking bookmaking truck hijacking and extortion rackets, and it wasn't by showing mercy. He knew that even if he was somehow able to talk his way out of the situation that was nowhere to run. By the end of his career Whitey sanctioned hits as far away as Oklahoma McIntyre. Himself had even been involved in weapons smuggling scheme into Ireland full Whitey. No less. His boss was an international criminal. The great irony of course was Whitey got away with all of his criminal enterprises because he himself was an FBI informant. Whitey had grown up in the projects with an FBI agent named John Connolly. To him. Whitey was more than just a valuable pawn in their war against the Italian mafia, and for Bolger, Connolly became his `get-out-of-jail-free card and it was connelly who gave him the tip that one of his guys McIntyre was talking of course only those in White T.'s inner circle new of his deal between Bolger and connolly besides who would suspect Whitey of talking he was the gentleman gangster who bought Turkeys for poor South Boston families on Thanksgiving, the man who was a fitness. Nut He didn't drink or smoke the same Whitey who for all of his wealth and power still drove a Chevy Malibu and lived with his mother nearly until her death in nineteen eighty. Whitey, was a Southie boy through and through no, one would accuse him of talking to the feds so why he ran southie and that meant he had all the tools in his pocket, the power of the FBI and the power to do whatever needed to be done to anyone who crossed him. In. The kitchen John mcintire shook his head apologizing over and over again he told his boss. I'm sorry. I was week white. He wasn't interested in the apologies he needed information. He turned the conversation to ask him questions about what McIntyre told the FBI. NDA and then oddly his questions shifted back towards business McIntyre was entrenched in Boston's drug trade Whitey. He had been forcing South Boston's drug dealers to pay him rent for working his streets and he wanted to make sure he was still getting his haircut McIntyre spilled everything both what he said to the feds and about the drug industry he held back nothing by the time McIntyre was done talking Whitey was satisfied. He calmed McIntyre down in assured him that they were just going to send him away. Once the heat died down, he could return to Boston somehow whites he managed to convince McIntyre to come down to the basement with him. and. Once they were downstairs white he tried to strangle McIntyre with the rope. But the rope was too thick. All it did was make McIntyre. throw-up frustrated Whitey grabbed a gun and shot him with that bullet. Whitey used his position as an informant for the FBI to kill another enforcement and the FBI had helped him do it. People like John McIntyre. What collateral damage the cost of doing business ultimately McIntyre's death meant nothing to Whitey. In fact, he went upstairs and took a nap a ritual he kept after every kill. Meanwhile, two of his henchmen buried the body
