"He stars on the new film, the power of the dog. Cumberbatch was named best actor for his performance in the film by the national society of film critics. You can also see cumberbatch now in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Doctor Strange, which is the biggest box office hit since the start of the pandemic. So, you know, at the same time, you're in power of the dog. You're also in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is a movie in the Marvel Universe and you played Doctor Strange. And you have your own Doctor Strange movies and this is like you're a character in the Spider-Man film. You just finished the latest or about to finish the latest. Doctor Strange film. The Marvel Universe seems so different from, say, the gen campion universe. She directed power of the dog. For example, you stayed in character when you did your roll of fill in the power of the dog. And you know, you kept your accent. Now you could keep your accent when you're doing Doctor Strange because it's a New York accent, not a British accent. But I'm thinking how funny it would be of all of the characters in a Marvel Universe movie, all the superheroes stayed in character. Their own. I mean, that would just be kind of ridiculous. That would make it officially the most exhausting job you could possibly do is that and damaging two because you don't really have superpowers. There's that as well. Yeah, exactly. That could be pretty devastating to come out of. But yeah, imagine that lunch chat. No, it's true. It would be a very bizarre situation because mainly it's such a fragmented piecemeal process, making one of those films. I've watched incredible actors use an insane amount of skills on those sets to just be able to magically turn it on, be fresh with it and be loose with what's one of the biggest sandpits in the world. And play and never forget the art of acting as playfulness. But that takes a huge amount of ability and to be able to shift it and create something connected and present when you're acting against so many elements that aren't there when you're having to use your imagination. It is like being back in the bedroom again and just playing with characters that aren't seen in our childhood. I think it's a very, very heightened skill. You come from a really interesting family, your parents were both actors in England on stage and screen. They are still active. Are both actors say, okay, good..

"Cumberbatch was named best actor for his performance in the film by the national society of film critics, and by film critics associations in New York, Boston, Chicago, Dallas Fort Worth, and the San Francisco Bay Area. You can also see cumberbatch now in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Doctor Strange, and he's just completing work on the new Doctor Strange movie. Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar for his starring role in the film the imitation game, based on the story of Alan Turing the mathematical genius who was instrumental in breaking the German enigma code in World War II. Cumberbatch has played other real people like Stephen Hawking and Julian Assange. He's famous for his role as a contemporary version of Sherlock Holmes in the British TV series Sherlock. The power of the dog was directed by Jane campion, adapted from the novel of the same name, and is set in 1925 in Montana. Cumberbatch plays Phil, who along with his brother, played by Jesse Plemons, owns a cattle ranch. Film is hyper masculine. He skilled at cutting the testicles off cattle, herding cattle and breeding leather ropes. He rarely bathes. He's also a bully. He even insults his brother and cause him fat cell. When they're taking the herd to market, they stop at an inn where they have dinner. They're served by a young man, the son of the woman who owns the inn. He has a clean white linen towel over one arm. The way you might see in a fancy restaurant, not a little inn in a tiny town. His manner and the linen make him seem effeminate to fill. While the young man is serving the table where fill his brother and the cow hands are seated, Phil picks up a paper flower from the handmade bouquet, serving as the table centerpiece, and starts examining it. Oh yeah. Well, I wonder what little lady made these. Actually, I did sir. My mother was a florist. So I made them to look like the ones in our garden. Oh, well, do pardon me. There. Justice.

"What's the fastest that some kid can run a race and junior high school? And it's like 5 minutes. And I was like, that's insane because like a hundred years ago, that was like Olympic caliber race, but that was thought to be impossible. Once somebody does something, or you ever play video games, your sister or somebody around here, you got a lot of video games. They get a high score, they kill the big boss and say, oh, that's like and then you do it literally. The thing that you couldn't do for weeks. Now you do it the next day. So things are only impossible until they're not impossible. And so the short, the human, and that's why I don't like this thing. Follow the science. Science is supposed to be about questioning authority, and now we're in this language where you have to follow authority. I think almost nothing could be less scientific than saying like, oh, because this particular person like Feynman would say something that I'm not gonna question it, of course, he has to be wrong just as Newton was wrong just as Galileo was wrong many times. By the way, Einstein was having a debate with my friend Stefan Alexander, as an author and the president national society black physicist and the professor Brown university where I went to he and I were grad students together. And I was like, you know what? I freaking Einstein. I know you love him, but he was wrong more than he was right. And he's like, what are you talking about? That guy, I was just like, here are 7 different ways that he was wrong. And he was right when it counts. And he goes, yeah, but because of relativity, he gets a pass. And I was like, all right, I gotta give it to you. And I was like, I always joke, you know, like it's too bad he made those 7 mistakes, 'cause otherwise he could have had a good career. You know, he could have been known as somebody. But in reality, he's definitely wrong about he was wrong about 7 major things. He's called as big as blunder even. And if you think about that, if you teach kids that Einstein is an infallible, omnipotent genius, no kid, Einstein himself wouldn't have said I am an Einstein. And so we shortchanged the potentiality for young people to enter into science when we say that something is solved. Everyone agrees, and there's no room for progress. So I think of that and the impossible kind of mantra as a way to inspire people to think about and maybe not possible. But you won't know until you really give it a true try and give it all you can leave it all out there on the floor. And I think that there's the thing that only curiosity can sustain. That kind of a quest. Multi decade long quest as it did for Einstein try and fail to come up with a theory of everything. But that's beautiful in a way. Look, I know you're not, I don't know. Super religious, maybe I'm like, but look at the essence of Moses, the founder of Judy. Like the key lesson is he does not get into the promised land. We all have a promised land. We all have things that we aspire to that we want to do. But he never stopped asking, God, please let me in. Even fly me over it. Let me see it from a mountain. And then we don't even know where he was buried. Because that great man, we don't want to have it as a place of worship, because he was just a man. He wasn't a God himself. And I look at that, and I say, the Nobel Prize for me became an idol. It became a promised land, even if I get into it like the characters, the real people, but I can think of those characters into the impossible. They have all won the Nobel Prize, but 7 out of the 9 tell me that they have the impostor syndrome. In these interviews, and I'm like, what are you talking about? In fact, Barry barish, who won the Nobel Prize for just a little thing of detecting two ginormous black holes colliding together near the speed of light, a billion years ago in a galaxy, we don't even know exists anymore. He discovered those with his teammates on the ligo experiment, the laser interferometric gravitational wave. Observatory. And he said, when you win a Nobel Prize, which I'll probably never know, no. You win a Nobel Prize. You go to Stockholm. You meet the king, you have a reindeer sandwich with the king, and then you bend down and he puts a gilded graven image of alford, Nobel around your neck, and then they say, oh, you win a $1 million too, or some fraction of a $1 million with the people that you want it. You have to sign this book. And the book has all the people that have ever won the Nobel Prize in physics. And he's a curious guy. So he opens it up, he turns on it last year, two years ago, 5 years. Oh, there's Feynman. There's fine. Wow. There's, oh, there's Marie Curie. There's Einstein. And he said, I'm not worthy. I'm an impostor. And I said, how do you feel that now after winning the Nobel Prize? He goes, I can't live up to what he did. I said, Barry, I have to tell you something. Albert Einstein had the impostor syndrome. He's like, what are you talking about? He said that Isaac Newton did more not only for physics, but for western civilization than any person before or since, meaning, even including Einstein himself. I remember hearing a quote, I don't know if it's apocryphal, but where somebody said to Einstein, what's it like to be the smartest men alive? And he said, I don't know, you have to ask Nikola Tesla. I always found that interesting. To your point about. The impostor syndrome, but there's also something more that you discount the thing that you're good at because..

"Hopeful Working with some amazing people who have been very very helpful and we did everything they could. But but i think it is a bit lace now I think sit department is overwhelmed. I don't know if they have a plan to get these people out. currently the evacuation in my From what i hear is over. I don't think evacuations are happening anymore. So to the best of your knowledge. There's nobody working on getting your twenty loved ones out anymore. Well there's one lady erica. Who was introduced to me by julie. She is working on it. But but all of our efforts is dependent on on negotiation between the us government on the taliban to see if they allowed allow these planes to take off out right now. From what i know it has. That's a difficult thing to do. So but they're trying but don't think the us has huffman there so when you don't have footprint and you don't have leverage you cannot rely on taliban's mercy to to tell you whether you can or can't flyway and and just so i understand the pitcher With the four million or so people who live in kabul as you said many of them have one connection or another or have a family member who had a connection or another to the us. The taliban have said publicly. They're they're going to give all those people amnesty but you don't believe it. No i do not i do. Not as i said they just before they enter kabul. The massacre hundred people in the border town can't har- there right now. Doing a massacre in panjshir province which last stronghold they're killing people and there are coming out of people who are surrendering their shooting them so in taleban that are two or three droops there is there are the moderates who have been in negotiating. And there're The hotlines are liners. Who are previsous. they you know. Killing his is not a problem for them. They have been killing people in suicide bombs for last twenty years. So they're acting but as soon as you the the national society the countries of europe. Us on others than recognize them and they are sure that you know that's not going to there's i am certain They would they would come back to their old policies because right now. They're hoping to be recognized of they're hoping to be held The money be unfrozen. That's why they're acting but they haven't changed their ideology. they're not. They don't believe that these people should walk around because all of them helped the us in one way or another and so we've heard the taliban say things like You know women are going to be safe in afghanistan. And they'll continue to be able to go to school and and live lives that they had been living For the last twenty years it sounds like you don't believe that either again. I am really hopeful that that some level.

He died on april twenty-seventh eighteen eighty two. And i didn't get into it here because this would pick a whole nother episode but all of these authors that we just talked about knew each other and spend a lot of time together and they all were part of the trump transcendental community and everything that was going on at the time. i just didn't include that in the script. Only because again that would take a whole nother episode to discuss all the happenings. That went along with that but they all were very well acquainted and shared a lot of the same philosophies and stuff so if you haven't ever studied any of their readings or writings you'll find a lot of similarities between them.

"Were able to do it. They're together in person distance from everybody else and i think they're still working out with the platform is going to look like but last year there were some really amazing virtual conversations that were happening through some like online chat room. Type things that were part of the of the conference platform so if that happens again this year i definitely encourage students to get into those rooms to have those conversations To help you feel a little bit more connected to the profession Didn't you might otherwise considering that we're all gonna be at homer or or in our offices this year attending industry see. It's interesting the question about whether like moving forward right like our first year is going to be allowed to go. We've had one or two go. But that was simply because they had a poster that they were actually presenting. Yeah so i actually Was when i was in my program. The energy see was five minutes away from it was an anaheim which was five minutes from where i was when i was the first year. So all of us actually went as the first year. And i have to say that it was so inspiring and the unfortunately that was partly probably because of the the networking opportunities and being in person but I think that it can be so beneficial so for anyone listening. That doesn't know what we're talking about. Energy see is the national society of genetic counselors. There's an annual conference that is specifically geared to genetic counselors where people come from all over the country in actually probably the world To learn about what's going on the newest latest greatest Research topics in genetic counseling. And so this year it is virtual again which has been disappointing for some people but it is. You know better safety wise. Which is why it's been changed but also it will allow. I think a lot of people who weren't able to travel for many different reasons to be able to attend And we're kind of talking. What has been mentioned. Is that in the future going forward. Instead of just being in person it will be both in person and Virtual and you can choose which one and i think that one of the big barriers to people attending is travel and is leaving your family leaving things for that amount of time. And so i think for first years for anybody who's a practicing genetic concert can be very very helpful to to attend digitally virtually So i don't know. I just wanted to give my input as someone who went as the first year it was. It was overwhelming. But i think it was also very inspirational something that i was just thinking about analysis..

"Here. Let me scroll down. There is a report out. Yeah it was by the financial times apple. I'm just reading the headline here. Apple plans to skin iphones. I cloud for child abuse imagery. And so i'm going to just paraphrase this to summarize as best. I can basically what the story was was. Apple is scanning. I cloud photos for image. Is that match. A database of of known child abuse images and then furthermore. And this is the part that really. I think caused a lot of the outrages apple according to the story was also going to be scanning your phone so regardless of whether or not you upload your photos to cloud apple was actually going to be scanning your phone according to your point and looking for child abuse image images. Now i think that was the story and then there was this guy who let me see here. What's his name. John hopkins university professor taga for matthew green who went on similar of twitter terrain about this and he said that according to people that he knew that apple was going to be scanning images. On your phone that you didn't even upload i cloud and looking for abusive pictures so what were you gonna say. Leander was a bit more complicated because apple actually came out the time to the story. They had the apple had been briefing journalists and security researchers last week in anticipation of putting out this announcement on the financial times. Got wind of it so they did a story saying apple's planned to do this but then apple came out and officially confirmed they. Now have an ethic you up and they'd be answering questions and you know they're going to be what they're going to be doing is that they're scanning your device for child abuse images for anything shade in cloud and it'll only scanner if got cloud sharing turned on but the controversial part is is that they're introducing the scanning feature that you know without anybody asking for this you know and there's no way attended off so it's going to happen as long as you if you share photos an i cloud It's gonna it's gonna scan your phone full Child abuse images and then there are a couple of other components to as well you know where they they're looking for And i messages if the kid is between thirteen and sixteen On their on their parents account the family sharing counts If they receive anything. That looks like Sexual sixty explicit imagery that parents will get a notification Through a cloud of th th th th this is the kids are looking at something potentially damaging or if they send it to And yeah you know. It's a big big big controversies the first time That apple's been doing this. The first time a couple is actually pushed down to the device level. So upon this is routine and facebook you know for facebook scans All the images that get uploaded to facebook and they found some in late twenty million Images I come over. Timeframe was i don. I think that was longer than a year. A appear to three or four years but yeah it was a lot Google fast seven hundred thousand apple found a few hundred because they're not doing it. They're not scanning but it looks like there's legislation in the uk and in the us that's going to compel to look for this kind of imagery on apple wants to introduce end to end encryption in i cloud photo backups. Which doesn't do right now. Other behest of the fbi But this might be a step towards align them to do that. Because of course. I won't be able to scan for this kind of imagery if it's aunts encrypted the cops going on the server but they can scan on the device at the device level. So you know. there's some speculation. this is why they're doing this. they're trying to head off this legislation. They're trying to get ahead of their own. Encryption plans try not like you know. find a solution for lawmakers to say look. We're doing this at the device level but of course it you know it introduces a spy tool that. No one's asked fool implicitly. it makes me You know really uncomfortable with this. I think it's a slippery slope that i don't want to say apple. Get down you know. This i think is an invasion of my privacy in apple especially with this marketing. You know saying that. The the i mean. Look a little town everywhere. You go here in san francisco. There's john billboards up with people holding their phone over their faces insane privacy. That's iphone and i think too like this is the violence tool no matter. What the you know. The the reason i know it's it's it's well intentioned and i find child abuse absolutely barns but i don't like the idea of my phone spying on me and the background without you know may have anything being able to do anything about it. It makes me uncomfortable. Yeah i think it makes people uncomfortable and then apple had this to say let us be clear quote. Let's be clear. This technology is limited to detecting see sam Stored in cloud and we will not lead to any government requests to expand. And that's like. Yeah look i recommend shine. You know like that. That's one of reasons you're putting this in place. It seems is is to head off the the upcoming requests by governments. That you do this. And what other things could they ask you to do that. You would undo. You seem like you're already a seating and so and then you have this feature that's floating out there. You're you're creating a mechanism for this kind of spying on the phone. What would prevent someone from abusing this. Now that you've created so. I mean i'm with you i i know many of us are probably in the exact same about you. Know the the. I think that child abuse especially of sexual nature is one of the most evil things that can be one of the most evil acts that can happen. You know and it really is disgusting to me. And i would. I would be supportive of any initiative to to to lessen it remove it arrest people and mixture that those people are punished for participating but also with your phone to start scanning everything on your phone. You are paying apple to keep private. And they're supposed to be the champions of privacy. I think this is a huge black for them. And i think it's eroded a lot of that that brand trust. We put it in apple that they've spent so much time championing and and building and now the sudden they're coming out of nowhere and saying oh. Hey we're gonna start scanning your photos and if we determine that there's something potentially wrong with them we're gonna send them to a team of people and those people are gonna look at your photos of your kids. I'll think that's a bad look probably not going to do that. I mean it looks like i literally say that if you'll kids they're looking for this you know they're looking looking to confirm that this is one of those images already in the database then looking for new original photos then looking for kids you know pictures of your kids in the bathtub or you know playing on the slip and slide. They're looking for Images that have already been. That are already in this database run by the national society for whatever the center for missing children. So they're looking for known exploitative imagery so i guess from my perspective though i'm like how accurate is this algorithm. That's looking for those things. This is one of the you know the right is supposed to be. This is going to apple. Annapolis on analysis hasn't been independent verify. But i think the chance of a false positive you know in the one trillion kind of range plus looking for somebody with a significant cash. If someone's got one image. I don't think it'll trigger. They're looking for people who have got multiple images and i don't think they've specified. How many but it's like if they find someone who's apparently multiple these images that have already been flagged Classified by by the The the senate missing children then. They'll get that team of humans. Actually look at images to confirm that they are you know sexual abuse so i guess that's that's a little better than i think. My first my first initial understanding of what was happening. I guess misunderstanding of what was happening. I thought they were just looking for you. Know pictures of naked. And what they're doing now. They're looking for pictures that match. A database of pictures. Those pictures hashed and then they're looking for pictures you know in your cloud photo library match. That have matching hashish. So they're looking for specific images that they know are out there..

"So so that was what would happen there and joe. Can you think of any questions or things that you'll interested in that. I haven't covered because on starting to rob we likely to find a helpful. Barrister a friendly barrister given the we've made an attempt now. Look we were offered help by barristers so this is a good point to rise giant. Because as i said there were two parts to this application one was the the rejection of the let-up by sickly signing things like the had no evidence about belief in siton ahead no evidence of an numbers of membership they the the political origins of the group irrelevant so these are all as a matter of administrative lula. Invalid reasons to mica decision. So what normally happens. Is you in that situation if feel successful if the court says yes. The decision was flawed in its reasoning. The decision guys back to the department and they told them mike this mike the decision again so obviously can't make the same mistakes but they might make some other ones but all quotas is basically send it back to the original decision maker and say we'll let didn't work try again. The other part of the application was a declaration that the news site masai religious them national society and infamy the k. Two that was his hall religious. Saudi argument tempest shot then spent a lot of tournament. So we did get some help from embarrasses. And i'm really grateful for it. But they concentrated on the the the letter and and rejecting the letter and i felt they didn't concentrate enough on the declaration and if i had just relied on this admissions i feel there wasn't nearly enough. Commentary about the declaration. They disagreed with me and said they thought they had. And and what a kind down to that. I was in terms of availability. They the particular basta could not do it to die. he's for start down south and they're in lock dam and but he's also busy so it would have required getting an agenda and then doing stuff by remote distance zoom frankel bicycling and.

And i like the viruses suggested i get an adjustment so that i could be involved. He was going to be really light in proceedings to ask for an jim. I'd receive advice from other barristers deci- if you ask for jim day that's going to be a really bad look and you might not even get it. This is a really light request. So yeah it. Won't i appreciate their advice on the digital review questions. I just wasn't in sync with them on the declaration on i feel a different opinion now a bit affronted the frontal. Jane just disagreed.

Employees still have to wear masks in the workplace, even if they are vaccinated, although there are a lot of places where people aren't paying attention to that governor Newsom had promised. That he would sign an executive order, sidestepping the usual tend a legal review before those rules take effect. Quadruplets quadruplets, man, So I mean, I don't know if it's so rare. I don't want to correct you because I don't know exactly. I'm just saying that possibly that's a and you can identify as saying quadruplets as correct if you choose. I appreciate that You're such a sensitive guy. Um, I'm sorry. Oh, my gosh. Alright. Aaron, Nick, Zack and Nigel weighed four brothers. Quadruplets. All got into Yale University together in 2017 time on before time out. I mean, before we get to this if you were to name like time on though, time on fun, Uh, If you were to name four boys, four boy quadruplets, quadruplets, Nigel kind of sticks out, doesn't he? Well, Nigel and Nick Stick out. Aaron and Zack like from. I got four boys from a to Z. That I understand. So I see. All right. Wouldn't would. I feel like you had the opportunity to either name them all one letter, which should be completely annoying and percussion. Precocious, pretentious, pretentious. Um, but, um, A and N Z. Well, I think Aaron, Nick and Zack are all kind of in line with like boy band names like White Boy Band name Right. And then Nigel is kind of like Nigeria had like a crazy uncle from Britain, and you wanted to honor him and he threw in Nigel. He's the British boy band. Right? Okay. Just to add a little flavor, a little depth, little texture. First of all, how do these kids get into Yale? I'll tell you why Yale, Yale decides Yale sees four applications come across its desk just like Harvard did When, um, you know when Elwood's applied and they saw that she was different, so let's let's mix her into Harvard law, you know? And when they saw these four boys quadruplets apply, they thought, what a great opportunity. What great publicity for Yale And these are Dummies. By the way, these kids absolute dummies, Erin wrapped up his college career with a double major in computer science and psychology. Nick got a degree in political science. A minor in Arabic. Zach double majored in chemical engineering and economics. And Nigel got a degree in molecular, cellular and developmental biology. What did you do today? It's gosh. Wow. I want to know about the parents. Well, this this picture of there's there's two pictures that were included with the story. One is the four brothers as they're graduating. I guess so. Current age there What 22 years old and then this picture of them? This has to be What 45 years old? Maybe something like that. They all look so different. I'm going to put that in my own house. That's a wonderful picture. Great pictures. Yeah, um, in the wide ranging interests. They say that the siblings they followed them to construct identities of their own on campus. In fact, in four years They all of the four of them. They only overlapped in class. One time, Erin and Nigel were together in the same 2000 Persons psychology lecture. That was just that one time Erin since we grew up in this town over where we had always existed as the quads or the wade brothers, But when we got to Yale, it was very much small fish in a big pond. Nobody really knew who we were. I feel that when we met people at Yale, they met Aaron Weight as opposed to one of the quadruplets. Now that's an interesting Uh, interesting piece of forethought on their part to be put in these different residential colleges. They all went to different dorms, the four of them, and they said that they really only saw each other once or twice a semester. Really. Even though they're on Yale's not a big campus, you'd think they'd miss each other right? I would imagine. Maybe that's that's sick of each other. They were busy, too. What if they're dudes? Dudes? Feelings are different than women's feelings. Like if you had four quadruplets sisters, would they be more like To be Um, intertwined in each other's lives. I don't and I don't or at each other's throats. It's possible and again or their first of all, they're dummies. Right? And now they have horrible hearts on them. Nick worked with refugees and immigrants. Erin got involved in the music scene is the music director of a campus acapella group. Zach served as president of the National Society of Black Engineers. God I feel like such a failure as a person, don't you? Well, No, because I would say this. I lived in Shasta Hall. Yeah. That's it. That's the end of my That's the only real I loved. Accomplish. Lived in Shasta Hall and maybe went to 30% of my classes. Maybe I was. I was pretty regular in terms of how I went to class school. I went to school. It's hard not to when you live there.

"Welcome to the kaleidoscope where every week we discuss issues, including income inequality. This week, President Biden became the first commander in chief to visit the site of the 1921 Tulsa Race massacre. A white mob destroyed Greenwood and affluent black community killing hundreds. Mr Biden is now targeting racism in the housing market. From an equity at home appraisals to redlining that has kept communities of color light green wood from realizing their economic potential. Lydia Pope heads the National Association of Real Estate Brokers and advocacy group and says This has been happening for decades in the black community. What I'm seeing as a real estate agent because I'm seeing B Low appraisals that are coming right within our own community. You know when buyers buy property in certain areas, it can be directly across the street from a suburb but because you're in a certain zip coat. They discriminate based on the appraisal value is much lower, and it's causing the buyers be able to not purchase the property and the cell is unable to sell the properties. And this has been going on for many years, and it has not stopped and we are very concerned about the appraisals right in the heart of the city and their laws against that, so why? And how is this still happening? What we're seeing within the appraisals is because their license do their own state. Is that when they're validating that they're not allowing and let me get used to wear now not allowing, but it's a challenge for us to dispute those appraisal values. So we're just hoping that the appraisal society and we have an appraisal society, National Society of real Estate appraisers as well as within the state and the federal government to change the way that the appraisals are being made. There's just so much discrimination within that, and we don't have that correct answer. But we have to do something about this or is going to affect the value of the neighborhood and we can't sell the properties. I'm going to come back to the value of the neighborhoods in a second, But let me ask you what? What are you advising sellers to do to try and get around this? Well, I'm advising the sellers to dispute the appraisals to contact you know all the national appraisal society or contact the banking institutions that are hiring the appraisals and voice their concerns. Because if we don't have that conversation and start that now it's going to continue to bleed right in the heart of the community. Is it really As bad as having to have white people stand in for you at your house and take your black books and pictures off the walls? It is you still have them still have the racial biases, you know, will still be inequality. It's still the challenges that we're having. And yes, there was. No there was a case in Indianapolis that they did have a white bar, right owner or pretend like she was an older in the property, And when he came by the property, he had praised of property for higher when the black person has the property and was in there. It was lower. So yeah, it's still based on race. What does this mean for black families and Latino families, frankly, who are trying to sell their homes? What does that mean for the level of equity they are able to bring when they are refinancing or selling when an owner can't sell their property in the black community. And the values are at the lowest values Number one. They can't move to their stagnant so they can't grow. Secondly, they make decisions. That may hinder in the future they may decide to they can't refinance. The value is not there. So what do they do? They may try to sell the property, and if they sell the property, they'll sell it for lower than what the value is worth, and it may be to an investor taken away the community. Area where you know we're trying to build families and community. Those that are moving into the community doesn't have that opportunity to be able to to to be a part of the housing community and and then the gap the racial gap. It still persists the same because you can't move them into the community. You can't move the folks in there that want to maybe go to an apartment or different living style. They can't leave out because the properties want to phrase it. So you still have no community being built right within the old city, and we can't build communities unless we can get the higher appraisals that we so deserved. The property properties are up to date. They're beautiful properties. But the appraisers won't value it at that price because you're living in a black community, and it's just not stop you still bleeding. Let me also ask you about redlining. It's 2021 red lining is still a thing that you're running into. Yes. What we're finding out with red lining is the act. And for those who understand, I want to make sure they understand when institutions refused to make loss of people with low incomes, Black Americans specifically that's rare lining, and that is cause a major major problem. What we're finding is dealing with the inequitable and the racial Fraser practices, he goes back to the appraisal. There are so many articles published over the last several years of highlighted the biases and the plagues in regards to the appraisal industry. What we're doing at Nierob. Just so, you know, we're addressing this issue by creating a more diverse appraisal workforce is we have an appraisal society and challenging the policies that are the root cause of this discrepancy. You know what we find again is with the with the red lining. This has been going on. You know, before the Fair Housing Act, you know the practice that is prohibited by the Fair Housing Act 1968. The Fair Housing Amendment Act of 1988. You know, beans are still going on today and we're being denied alone due to the economical credit factors. That is not considering there's not being that's not considered the red lining, so we're having some challenges when it comes to that, but they wrap is really focusing on addressing this. It goes back to the appraisals. I wonder what you think about the initiatives that President Biden announced in his speech and Tulsa this week..

Dee Tuck Discuss Getting Into Software Engineer

"A D.. Tuck back and I am an engineer manager at abstract so what does being. An engineering manager entail at abstract. What's a what's a normal daylight for you? Oh man lots of meetings lots of meetings yes so I hardly run run two teams run. The I run the platform squad. God and in an enterprise admits and so at participating a lot of meetings with With product in our in our stakeholders. I'm also responsible for for running our agile methodologies so such as all our scrum meeting so I'll also act as a scrum master as well so I spend a lot of time in meetings and a lot of time in Jere. Oh and you've been in the role now for about a year so enlisted year. Yeah so I started. I started abstract January January of this year but I've been an engineering manager for about About two years nice. What attracted you to the company? So I came across abstract during a time from where my my previous company decided to outsource their engineering department. And so I was just I was just kind of looking came across abstract on linked in and I was just like I read the job description for the engineering manager role and like right there at the top. It talked about diversity inclusion and I was just like wow this this is different and so I just kind of dug into it and I really looked on linked in and I really saw that there were a lot of people did that you know look like me as I was like okay this it does. This is a little different and so so yeah I was able to reach out reach out to want to recruiters and the rest is history there now. You're you're running two squads like you said what's the biggest challenge with your role. I mean it sounds like a lot. Managing teams yes so definitely early mcalinden is booked right at definitely say time. Time is a big challenge with me. You know Kinda Kinda having having a lot of meetings things whether it's with the weather's with Martine our with our product managers. It's definitely a task to balance both but I think I'm doing pretty good job. Edit and so as the engineering manager you're also hiring for both of these teams. I'm assuming that right. Yes now how is is it when it comes to kind of recruiting and retaining talent because you just like you said you looked on linked in your Deny you saw people that looked like you and that made you interested in it. How is I guess the process and you have to go too far in the weeds on this? But how is the process for recruiting and retaining talent for you. We get a lot of applications and so definitely have to like spend time you know screen candidates but one of the things about one of the things about abstract and one of the things that I- enjoys that. Ah We are very intentional. And like in recruiting diverse talent and whether that be sponsoring lesbians and Tech Afro Tag Tag are any of the other the base tech conferences. Where we're usually there and so I usually try to jump on board with our recruiting team to kind of get out there and be candidates face to face and so I think one of the things that I that I can say When you think about like DNA and tech and you know and hire is that you have have to be intentional about it and so in a lot a lot of times that means putting money out there to actually do it like you know descended sending your employees that he's to these different different conferences to Kinda get out there and mingle with people so and I should also mention just for transparency for people that are listening abstract has sponsored provision path? Also there but I think it's it's a it's a good thing about being intentional I would say this was maybe about four so years ago I was doing consultant back when I had my studio and there will be a lot of companies big name companies that are so afraid of even when a dipping being their toe into the whole diversity and inclusion topic for fear of getting it wrong or saying the wrong thing saying I remember one client particular. I'M NOT GONNA name but one client particular. Big Media. Company was like yeah. We really want to try to recruit more you know black creative talent designers and developers. There's and I asked them if they had thought about just like going to like an Hvac job fair and it was like you could see people's minds exploding at the thought like we. We never thought of that. Yeah like go where they are like beret relationships and like you said the intentional about it. That's sort of what it takes. Yes Yep Yep it does is another thing too is is is a lot of a lot of companies will focus on hiring senior engineers. And I just honestly I honestly honestly think that there's a there's a conflict there right so if you're if you want to focus on ideas and inclusive hiring right if you only focus on hiring those who have you know ten years of experience then like it's going to be hard it's Nepalese definitely. Just going to be hard so so things like definitely opening up the gates to be able to support but those who are coming out of BOOT camp. This is definitely the way to go now. For Deny there's one company it's actually. I don't even remember. The name of the company was but what what I could tell us that it's clear they were just trying to find like black and brown versions of who their ideal employee would be and often times that a person may not exist because of a number of different circumstances socio economic circumstances education etc that they're just not going to be in that same pipeline or level of who you would really want but if you're being intentional about diversity and you know you're able to kind of determine what the base things you need what are like nice to have sorts of things right find that that probably makes the process a lot easier from recruiting standpoint. Yep Yep now I would say part of that you know is the recruitment but also oh retaining so like how diverse I say diversity and inclusion are like two sides of the same coin like it's one thing to bring diverse people land. But how do you keep them. Can you talk a little bit about sort of what the culture is like at abstracts. Yes so I definitely agree with you. Were saying like there's there's kind of like two sides of that coin right. I once read like diversity is inviting people to the party inclusive is playing music that they danced you right so yeah one. One one thing think of abstract I can definitely say. Is that like there. There are events that support you know different backgrounds. One of the things that we just did. Recently in the San Francisco office is is that we had a Latin and tech tech event and so really just making sure that like every everyone feels feels included One of the things that yeah I thought was like super cool when I got to abstract is that like is that we have a a people of Color Slack Channel Right that was like coach shock for me right. 'cause like I you know I'm usually I'm I'm usually the I'm usually the only one at my company. I'm usually the first first black or I you know. LGBT bt. Like it's I'm always. I've always been the first you know because I've moved around the south And so it's just definitely just stuff like that to just like Bill like okay. Here's a space for you. Connect with your people and like like I say abstract is very intentional. is in supporting different. You know the backgrounds in groups of people. Yeah now. Let's let's switch gears because you're talking about the south here you're located in Nashville. Is that where you grew up. No so I'm I'm originally. I'm originally from Cincinnati Ohio. Yep some born in born and raised in Cincinnati Ohio. I left Cincinnati yet at eighteen manner and went to Tuskegee Tas to study computer science and so after after graduating from Tuskegee actually kind of stayed stated Alabama. For about four years. I just moved around. Missile defense companies there so So yeah then I found my way to Nashville it was I guess tech and that sort of stuff a big part of your childhood growing up where you're exposed to an early I would say I would say I would say say yes and no right so one would be one of the things that like really like made me like fond of computers. Is that like my uncle. He used to work at a pioneer. Right Yeah the Audio Audio Company. So just he was just kind of like a super cool guy right. He always had a nice car He you know flu. He was the first person I knew that ever flew out the country. He's going to Japan all the time and so he was. He was also the first person who had a personal computer right. And all my all my weekends I would like spend my time upstairs and his he. He bought a two story house from our for my grandmother. He moved upstairs and she moved downstairs. And so I spend weekends at my grandma's India. I would spend hours upon hours just sitting at his computer. I mean I was. I was in there like changing all the settings things I mean. I don't know what I was doing. Computer head like windows ninety five on it. I mean I was I was just doing. I was doing everything like I. Just I would stay there for Hours upon hours and then one day I came down I came downstairs in my in. My grandpa was sitting on the couch and he was just like you know. What are you doing upstairs like? What are you doing up there and I was like you know? I'm on a computer. And he was just like he was just like us up. They are for like nine hours. Ten hours you know. He's he's a he's an older guy he's just kind of like so like like what are you doing. I was like look. I'm just on the computer. I have fun. He was like you know what when I retire. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa buy you a computer and so I was like cool in like an I'd never said anything about it. But soon as he retired he called me and was just like. Hey I you know I wanNA take you to circuit city in by you computer and like at that at that moment hours like static and so I think the the engineer was born in media. At that point I became like the family. tech specialist. I was going around fixing people's computers and printers ranters and Yes that that that's kind of how it started and also to like the schools that are schools at win. Two they expose US attack through through Nebbi National National Society of Black Engineers and then there was some. There was some other programs that like I stayed in contact with it so oh but even when I got to college you know I'll be. I'll be honest like I thought I was going when I when I signed up for computer science like I thought I was going to be like fixing computers installing all in word like. I didn't know anything about coding. Though that doubt thing like I didn't have any experience in my childhood that you know where I was actually like developing things so yeah when I got to college it was definitely a whole new ballgame
