Fallout of Texas winter blast
"Good evening. Thank you for joining us. The governor of sexist apologizing and promising answers after a deadly winter storm the deep freeze. Just the start of an ongoing nightmare for residents now. Struggling with shattered pipes in skyrocketing energy. Bill here's abc's tripled. I can't imagine what it's like for you to see it like this is terrible. I've never thinking house. This brianna bolden tells me she could smell the soap rotting wood from outside the front door of her grandmother's house before walking into this is pictures and the memories. They captured all underwater. And this is actually my big lama right here. This is all and that's the past those wife for half a century. Her grandparents filled this home with children and grandchildren home cooked meals. Tiny reminders of a family growing together is a lot of memories at this house. But now this house like so many in texas has been gutted. Helplessly flooded by first hypes last week's historic winter storm on your couch look. The damage is just a fraction of the devastation. in texas. that killed thirty. Two people will take months or years and billions of dollars to clean up. So how did it go so wrong so quickly. Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up. A forty percent drop in texas generation and the result was more than three million texas residents in the dark and cold at one point leading many to take drastic measures for running dangerously low on one. So now what we've been doing. All day is actually coming outside getting snow putting it are pods and heaving on our propane grill. Then hypes began to freeze and burst shutting down water treatment plants across the state inning. Almost fifteen million texans would have to toil their water of four. It was safe to drink daily block water. We don't even have the electric reliability council of texas or bur. Kat had long been warned. Its infrastructure was vulnerable to freezing temperatures the state legislature held hearings on this exact issue in twenty eleven. The last time the state experienced major freeze there were numerous hearings hundreds of pages of recommendations but they were all made voluntarily. Nobody actually change the incentives so that the generators would have a financial reason food to weather. Is this week. Several urquhot born members resigned in the wake of this disaster today in virtual urquhot board of directors meeting. The chairwoman acknowledged the pain and suffering of texans her resignation effective after the meeting ended. All of our hearts go out to all of you with head to go without electricity. Heat water not attending and food during frigid temperatures and continue to face the tragic consequences in some cases. The loss of a loved one state leaders have promised an investigation into urquhot handling of the crisis and members of both parties and the governor of rowing to make sure texans are on the hook for those astronomical electric bills at a time when essential services were needed. The most the system broke. You deserve answers. You will get those answers but people brianna bolden are in need of far more immediate solutions. She's facing mounting hardships. Having recently lost her father and grandfather. It sounds like your grandmother doesn't have home insurance right now. She don't she couldn't afford it anymore. Every generation been through this. Is papa really worked hard for this. I'm sorry statewide. There is so much damage from burst. Pipes plumbers can't keep up see the water. We have another one right here. Everardo omega of a plumbing. In houston says he's crews have been working around the clock just as bad. I mean there's necas mad and they're receiving more calls than they can answer this heartbreaking the tell somebody. uk make we broke down here. Twenty five hours plummer andrew mitchell in his family driving all the way from new jersey with a car full of equipment in arts in short supply here for just going to see what we can do to help out texas residents and also converging in texas to help out the cajun navy civilian volunteers known for using their big trucks. Kamal boats for rescues during major storms like hurricane harvey in twenty seventeen. We talked with a lot of people around here who've been they were impacted by hurricane harvey. I dealing with this. A lot of people think that this is worse than a hurricane's coming in we have more. We know what's going to happen with this disaster. We did not know what was coming. Community was not prepared. No one knew what was coming riley at this is marin mckim. She spent the last decade doing aid work in africa. When disaster struck home she was one of the first on the front lines. The cajun navy has gotten quite good quickly setting up distribution sites like this one but with so many people impacted. What's perhaps most useful is their platform and their connections. Cajun navy crowd sources disasters and cajun navias known so once we find the need we start using the social media platform and we put the word out there and people want to help on this day. They're delivering to katy texas home to just over twenty thousand with some areas still under a boil. Water notice

"necas" Discussed on 103.5 KISS FM
"The snowfall forecasted, but forecasted snow intimidates you, your girlfriend, maybe moving out with the pandemic result. What do you do you they started dating sort of early in a pandemic moved in together. It's been a Year. Everything according to him, has been going great. Except now she wants to move out again, not break up with them. But she wants her own space again. How would you take the Hey, Blair? Hi, guys tomorrow, Claire. Good morning. So you're going through this right now? What's the story? So my boyfriend I started dating early, independent Necas. Well, and, uh, I think we have been together for two months. When I was like, Why don't you just move in was down. You're wasting so much money for a storage unit, basically because you're never there so He moved in. It's been 10 months now, you know almost a year and I'm buying my my own house and buying a house right now, and I've got lots of animals. I've got I saw a single mom and he's He's been a bachelor for such a long time. I'm giving him the option of moving out. I'm like, Hey, I know this isn't what you expected. You're like to be like at this point, and you know if you want to move out, you can. You don't have to come with me to this new house because It wasn't expected. It's not. I don't think there's anything to be, um like police. Is this woman for? It's just an option, and it doesn't mean that there's anything wrong. It's just, you know, nobody expected that. The quarantine and the pandemic collapse. That's a good point. That's a good point. It's cool. You're opening that conversation up, because, yeah, I mean, I'm sure he's crazy about you. And I'm sure he loves your family in the dog's everything else, But, yeah, you're right. He didn't. You didn't intend to be at that phase in your relationship at that point, and so now that there's kind of a reset a reset on your living situation to go to him and say, Hey, are you sure you still want this Because it's okay if you don't. I mean, that's that's cool. And does he still want it? Yeah, He's got it. He's not like the amount of animals that I have that. Yeah, three dogs and a cat. Now I just got a cat because I'm a lunatic. Oh, my kind of girl, right? And I've got to aquarium You know, I'm I'm you threw that in there, that zem life That's where we draw the line here. So you got three dogs find a cat. Okay to look what's in the aquarium Snakes. This little fish. They're not know. According his face like money, you could put it snake in an aquarium terrarium. Okay, but it's still the same shape is an aquarium. Okay, but aquarium has this guy has water in it when I was building, Okay. What? It likes water. What.
Model-Based Offline Reinforcement Learning with Aravind Rajeswaran
"All right. everyone. I am on the line with arvin. Roger swaran arvind is a phd student in machine learning and robotics at the university of washington. Arvin welcome to the tuomo podcasts. Thanks famine federal pleasure. I'm really looking forward to our conversation. Motto based offline reinforcement learning is the topic of research papers called morrell motto based off. Find me enforcement learning. That topic has come up quite a bit over the past year or so It's getting quite popular. And i'm really looking forward to digging into your take but before we do. Tell us about your journey and how you came to work in our l. and robotics chip pretty interesting question my undergraduate background. Actually in something completely different. I was mostly doing big statistic and lucrative like chemical engineering as my formal degrees and i took a machine learning class by professor of in back in india and that kind of transformed my perspective on things that essentially had matt very similar to what is used in statistical it so i was able to pick up on it pretty quickly by the obligations. Seemed like really really cool. So i wanted to maybe fever debate and focus more on machine learning. And so that's how i moved into the bronx field of ai and when it started out i had more of a theoretical inclination ben. I started working with my adviser. Professor shawn kakabadze. Who's like an expert in machine learning theory on be discussing like what might be interesting projects topics to work on or we felt was start matz. If the research decide in machine learning deep learning was largely explanative nature so deep learning was already working really well and the gresh any hard. We understand explain. Why deep learning working enforcement learning. What was interesting is that we actually didn't have very good algorithms things. Were actually not working that ball. And there was a very interesting scope to have like an interplay between teary analogous from both develop new algorithms to break very well and also tried to explain why it is working than gain a more fundamental understanding and that sort of been might be at the joining us electric to show board they. Competitively goodra sauce ended the same time having a theoretical bench to my work. Nice nice and as the large focus of your work been on model base are l. in particular or have you explored a wide variety of topics within the space. I see interesting in model based in fort learning relatively recently the i'm i think about my research at least in the last couple of years has been the central question of. How do we make a. How do we create agents that can solve a diverse set of tasks with a modest amount of expedience but each individual dos and this is of course a very broad question that the number of different fields including multi task learning micro. Learning offline learning. And so on that constitutes space of problems that have been thinking about what you think is really cool approach algorithm to make progress on these domains model based startled so i view model based on. That's providing the mic toolkit to make progress on questions related to multitask turning meta learning offline. Learning got got so maybe the best way to go through this is to start from the beginning And have you kind of explain the. I'm curious the way you explain. Model based rl. And if it's you know the extent to which it'll be different from other explanations we've heard here on the show so let's start there. Yes so. I guess maybe i could try to merge some of from model based on offline learning on. What got me working on this project. I'm hopefully doing that. There may be an explanation for what is model based donal on. If you think about firmament a moment blake questions and computer vision are be the questions. There tend to be much more ambitious and interesting than in traditional reinforcement. Learning for example. The questions to be still asking learning are how can we solve a particular tastic pickup. A particular object with the robot solve a particular game with. Ask me more samples as possible. This is very different. From how people phrase digressions and computer vision for example offs kennedy chanukah detector with ten samples can attain got victor with twenty points. That's just not an interesting question. The questions are the how can i identify. What is the object. An image of thousand categories much more broader in scope and much more ambitious daily. Use a lot of will get to make that happen. Mine goal was to try to emulate that in reinforcement joining us. Now if he start thinking about how can an agent which flows in a very complex A kitchen for example. There are so many things that it can do the cabinets they clean bans the setup dishes and so on the dishwasher on the speed of things that the robot can do so much more diverse than what that means is we need to be able to use the data to extract as much information about the world as possible and i believe models are the we accomplish doctor just given a particular state of the wall some either league and explicit stately things that particular joined configurations of the robot throughout the different objects in the armour richard descriptions such as images and video slater scans of assets points to any potential action that the robot can take how would the world evolving change on if you are able to learn such a model it modern sculptures many of the details that want about the world on on the basis of what we learn. We can then downstream from finding and reasoning in order to accomplish necas of interest. So in my mind to go back to your question what is a model. I believe it is. How would the world respond to any changes be made potentially making the former factions
Mental Health At Work
"One and welcome into deals Metro. Meant Mental Hook podcast. Today I'm joined by Fame Guinness. She the head of what place wellbeing programs at mind, and also the lead of mental health partnership off online. I'm going to be finding out what effort line is. And how it supports people who work in healthcare and education. At same mind here to make sure that anybody with a mental health problem gets the help that they need and we have a goal of support. Your mom million people have good mental health at work twenty, twenty one. So I work in the team, the agencies over for what we do to what would. The prioritizing what place mental health. The must be really interesting at the moment in particular with the changes going on in terms of the way people working. Yeah. Absolutely. We knew that before covid there was already a crisis in terms of what place mental health we knew that the cost of mental health but web to employers was around forty five, billion every year, and we knew that around three hundred thousand people were falling out because mental health say before caved hit were ready seen an issue in relation to what pace mental health but many employees was sought into ready, prioritize it and understand actually. I over ties in what mental health was beautiful business. An when covid hey over the employers and employees see themselves facing a completely new a new situation a new ways of working in terms of people being removed, working hyme kind of losing face to face contact being out with the office environment and so many people that way of weckend has seen significant impact on the mental health. Attempt to that feeling of isolation that feeling that our not being able to kind of balance that work life. Balance Yes. We've seen a real impact on on people's mental health as a result of that Jikei in the Western world. Can we just get that says the stats wasted that because that's a really interesting but he's just through saying before the current crisis Request. What is mental health? What was causing that? So we never many factors m improvement to walk. So the right things that we hear from from employees site for for many people as kind of stigma that still exists in place. So many people feeling like they're unable to be on. The mental health and open vow. That maybe not feeling that. So we know this stigma is still massive coups and the people don't get in the rice who work that has been a huge amount of work done over the cost an. Pasta, fruit work that might have time to taint been doing as Paul that partnership with racing illness really tackle stigma typically in the workplace. So sigma has been a real issue, but we will say night many people that kind of coach environment where they may be able to get the rice of war. And meant to help with us but. Manager whether that's through kind of an HR teams or that kind of lack of trust in being able to kind of reach out. To those people in their organization where where they won't be able to turn to if they felt they could trust you all. So we see that real issue attempts at that Kinda coach apiece and that kind of lack of trust intensive reaching out. SUPPO- but also we know that there are many drivers impacting people and to helping the web play. So we hear about kind of memoir can hours organizational pressures, neca flexibility, lack of work life balance. So all of those things that we know Contri- healthy place and I think. The many years we spoke out health and safety, but the reality is that we've really spoken about the safety side of health and safety. And I always talk about the fact that you know if you're in the office and you know that was a hold on the floor and you fell down and you break your leg and your employees would absolutely make sure that that whole was covered up you can fall down and break your leg again. But we don't necessarily do that for for into health and and and we really do need to work towards creating psychology safe work environment where people feel to help his ties. Yeah. Absolutely. I couldn't agree more I'm what are your thoughts about how we can bring about genuine change the reason being of lack through different situations and it feels like it's sort of cutler ready one place he might get really supported manager who's really open minded with knowledge about to help stuff somewhere else you might get someone who's rudy knots inflexible. An what getting at the moment I, think is. A lot of businesses much of DUA. Hashtag. When it said World Mental Health Day, they might seduce pay lip service to supporting people with mental health issues. But when then when when actually comes to practically supporting people pretty much every day across the boards. It's is really not done so much. So what sort of advice can you give? Yeah, absolutely. So I think stopped by saying we have seen many organizations take some great strides, but we still have a very long way to go and so something that we launched back in. September last year actually with some equipment mental help what commitment and that commitment is assess six standards that we recommend would employees sign up to as the first steps to prioritizing placement health and so what we do with that commitment is we really look at how you tackled causes of mental health work, how you promote well-being for everybody and how you provide support for people have mental health problems. So actually you're covering the whole spectrum in terms of the early intervention prevention side things, but also making sure that you want bicycle for your employees should they need it? So we go over five hundred organizations Steph signed up back. Aw, which is really positive, but we really are encouraging more employees to sign out up to that. So you know like you say we've seen any employees for many years what we would call the low hanging fruit is an awareness raising either. Printing is a hey what we want employees to fundamentally think about is how can better design work for good mental health and that will take time that takes coach change that take some talk stations that takes into people have meant to help prominent than human about their experiences in the web ace. But actually you know you can start if they smoke stepson up to the commitment is a really good framework employers to sign up Jay
Overcoming the Impostor Syndrome
"Everyone my name is kwami. And I used to work in Mexico in product and I recently joined Verizon media about three months ago so putting you to the bay area objects just moved Jeff So the topic that brings us here. Today is a side. Just I used to be something engineering. I moved from sucking can humans product so What brings us here? Today's topic so comments up big from engineering to product overcoming the impostor syndrome Come out generally like to be a conversation on talk so I tried to prepare a few slides as possible so that it can be more conversation. input as well so going forward. This try do that. It's It's going to be a fun all right. So the agenda sell I I. I'd like to talk about next contacts about me What is product management? My jeans product Imposter Syndrome can start Just taking game looking what it is in in some fact surrounded and then some challenges I face and then five issues. I've picked up as more by on the issues that I picked out just Regards which gusset imposter syndrome and then how. I overcame IMPOSITON. Hopefully it'll who can it. It will be useful to you and then some key takeout takeaways that out like you to Renewed Aachen in Tacoma right. So start right with some fun facts about me So I'm originally from Ghana West Africa and I I actually grew up in South Africa. Small country called Swaziland. The Kingdom of size is one of the last remaining market in the world And it has about one point. Four million people so from very small tastes in Africa so I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs by parents. Aaron started off as teachers and I had the I guess I was fortunate. Watch them set up the own businesses whilst they were teachers indeed My Mom's side of the retail business. My Dad started my dad and my mom together started a consulting business in on. I was the African parents that to gifted children involved in your businesses so I I was involved in various aspects sometimes running by MOMS retail business. When shows away in my dad's business As dry vice over as Within the office realm so give me some good experiences. I was growing up so that I started my sneak of business so my mom used to as to start her business she should bring home some goods loss us as you said. Travel there on Welsh because back in she brings him good spots in for me. It was necas most of the time and I used to go to school. So Primary School in high school in I'll be walking. People become mention my sneakers and it took me a long time. Jackie free to create. That can actually make a business again. Why I'm wearing? I can actually bring to the people make some money so I sent it to source some sneakers locally inside. I got them for about twenty dollars. I got the start up capital from my mom I got them between Dawes. in-and-out seldom for about sixty dollars. So I mean some good profits in good the public money off that business I did that for a few years. And then I ventured into music so music writing music producing music. And I'm I'm doing the Polish Abang concerts and stuff like that so Figuring out how the music business works in that giving another arm armaments to learn how to build a business to learn how to make money radium. Each I moved here to the US. When I was nineteen I move for school? ooh And I studied computer science It was very interesting because I actually. I wanted to study business but I remember one time whereas Doing my assignment a friend of mine. Who Mentions me till this day your side Vm? He he told me hey. I think you'd be really good at computer. Sciences should try it out and I tried chided up and I never looked back. Site initially went there to study business and I change into computer science I studied in the smell coach. Westminster College in Fulton Missouri every small casing but again heavy time. GimMe opportunity to focus and to build myself as an engineer Either back on payments in the payments industry so I started off my sophomore year. Interim Mastercard work through software engineering in Minnie eventually a fulltime start working for them within biometric authentication. So that's been my core experience in fulltime. So that's been fun and lastly ask you Just recently moved to the bay air so the months ago I moved here actually three days ago as exactly three months. Oh still new to the area. I'm looking forward to exploring the era meeting more people right so this is just like A visual of my journey so the first one obviously a very happy mander was a struggle. School is struggling computer science met. That's what I studied in the struggle by that was the stock to Mike On right side Suicide my former company mastercard. I was basically working with the team on pitching a new product. And then on the bottom. NAFTA's about two weeks ago at my company Verizon media where I was lunching my product media commerce across Fanti company so that was finding new and in the middle was before I left mastercard. I didn't own your career panel where talking about the importance of knowing you are in making taking that risk to do exactly what you'd like to do in which for me was moving from software engineering product which is really fun. And then on the Bottom Reich. Mike is Me and Harvard. Business School with few Khalid's their house. Basically doing some diversity recruiting which something really passionate about in I still I don You're doing that for her as needed right so started. So what is product management. And so this is the industry definition. I have watched hundreds of Product School Jones and I always see this. Come up all the time if you go if you do a quick. Google search is the same as an intersection said a defining part on the intersection of US tech and business and then in the middle of magic you there. That's what they call the product management. What I agree with this Sunday by actually like using take a few aspects is a big element that's missing so this stakeholder management basically between us experience on January and business which could be marketing in sales and so forth? But there's no immensely add tate's the product manage. I feel like being being a product manager. Also it means that you need to manage yourself so I think that's using here so my a different version. I think it's missing you as a product manager. It's a big element there and you'll see wise relates to imposter syndrome and then there's some other Aspects that could doesn't actually say what you do as a product manager doesn't indicate why you do what you do and then how you GonNa do those things knock greedy evidence within the diagram so wise park management so I think I believe park management basically communists to things. So it's the why and the watts. That's what the product manager owns to the Y.. is going to be the traffic strategy. And then what is is going to be the product roadmap that you define based product strategy And then basically across this you're GonNa define what commensal wet solvent that always problems to solve in product management by product manager. It's your job to kind of define on actually decide what's important to solve in prioritize and in all this is brought together by the product. That's the bottom so this is my definition of park measuring
Intentional Leadership & Culture Building Leads to Lasting Impact with Matt Fouts
"We'll matt thanks for taking the time to visit with today welcomed the show. Thank you yeah glad to be here. You know. I'm a a big fan of Tanganyika. A season pass holders. I've taken my kids. Are you know multiple times but ah for the people that are listening in particular. Don't live in this area. What is the Tanganyika Wildlife Park working? And how did it come into existence. Yes so you know. Taking necas family owned its own by my family He started out as a breeding facility over thirty years ago. I mean my my my parents. Parents Dream was to build a world-class breeding silly for rare and endangered species. And that's kind of how we started out Until two thousand and early two thousands we start doing some private private tours in the backyard. Yeah and that just continued to grow and grow and to a point where we kind of had to make a choice. Like how do we expand this uh-huh and then just in that process we were like you know. Let's just build from the ground up and so so that's ultimately what we did but it was centered around Ah in addition to the breeding it was centered around connecting people to the natural world right. Because that's what people loved the most about those private tours we are doing. We did a tiger demo We drafting we're one of the first Susan country do draft eating right how you could feed the lemurs through the fence at that time. And through those connections we realized that we could strengthen strengthen the connection between people in the natural world. So you're a little kid when those is happening right. So you're always been around your your. Your parents were breeding these exotic animals. I mean that's all you've ever known as a kid growing up yet for the most part I mean it hasn't been So when I was real young it was definitely the primary focus for from my parents. Rents are at least my father as I got older though he he. He's an entrepreneur. He started number different businesses yet. A ELK business. He had a vitamin business for a while. He actually was a construction. He built homes in developed us. He's got some developments around town that were his at one time and so he he kind of diversify I five into other things in the animals. Were just kind of there. I don't say his hobby but he adam and we still bred them some but it wasn't his primary focus and then I at some point I mean early like once we start doing the tours and decide to grow. He started shifting his focus back into What he's always been passionate about? And that was the animals animals and so You know the great thing for him for the park Because he's not he's not overly big people person right like most of my kids grow on my my friends growing up or kids in my school growing like they never saw my dad and my mom very active my dad not as much so. He's not as much of a people person but he's definitely an animal person in the parks allowed him to really allowed us to take on a lot of new species that we wouldn't otherwise be able to support financially You know like the penguins because eat a tone efficient fishing very expensive or the rhinos. I mean they're probably the most expensive thing we have to feed and take care of but we wouldn't be able to do that without the the public support of the park. Yeah it's it's interesting to especially the the the re talk a little bit about the reach or at least some of the unique aspects of a lot of people don't realize right here in the center of the country provides all over the world right. I mean Gimme some of those examples that people may may know about maybe familiar with so as far as the encounters so yes I mean and most of what we have at the park. We're not the only ones or even the first ones to do it. There's a couple of exceptions but what we've tried to take the best ideas from around the world and so we have a lot of encounters with the draft being like I mentioned we have the the rental Lemur island where you go on the island now in enhanced enhanced. CDs lemurs and there's Lear walk-throughs all over Europe. But there were very few in the United States. And so that's kind of where he took. That idea are kangaroo walkabout again you go to Australia in every every zoo. There hasn't like we have go petting zoos and you can feed them and stuff so it was like why don't we. Let's do that here. And we worked towards that so you can go in and you can pet the KANGAROOS. Now Alan you know feeding the lorikeets you know one thing that is unique to us. Is We do penguin swims right. The only place I know of North America and the only place. I've heard of an e even in Europe up where you can actually get in and swim with African Penguins. I mean there's plenty places swim dolphins or whatever but the only place that I know of that. You can swim a penguin so we do have some some unique experiences like that. But it's all about finding different ways to connect people to the natural world Ryo animals in the wild they're losing and and especially with younger generations and just the sheer amount of information. Right of the millennials on down. Like if you can't find a way A to strengthen that connection on a more emotional level beyond just I'm GonNa go to the zoo and see animals one hundred fifty feet off or whatever it is. If you can't find a way to do that then then people are going to care. Less in animals are going to suffer even more right so so we really take that. That's the core of our mission is strengthening that connection and so those encounters are a great way. We do that. What about relationships with other zoos I mean do you do? You provide any relationships sir with them to provide animals for them. Has that happened in the past. Yes so you know I mean a lot of people. Maybe don't realize unless you're in the industry is. We have a world class collection of animals at the party. And it's even something. I took for granted because I grew up with not all the ones we have today. But a lot of the ones that we have I. I took it for granted but the more directors from different zoos and different places from around the world have come to the park. And they're like. Wow you have that animal. Wow you have that animal and and I've come to realize that we have a truly special collection especially being a family owned facility one and two we are accredited by a there's an organization called the Zoological Association America Z.. A. Were credited by them. It's different from like Asia which is like County or a lot of the bigs are credit Summer both a lot of one or the other We are accredited by Asia and Asia. I would say controls majority of the species and animals in the in the country so for us to have the collection of animals. We have is is pretty amazing and so but that's because the gym's relationships in working with other zoos your question I I mean. He's been in the industry for forty years and he knows you know so. Yeah we do stuff all the time with San Diego Zoo and We're getting ready to get an Okapi from Cincinnati. Dan we I mean we've done stuff with Denver Kansas City a little bit with such a county. I'm so so yeah. We've worked with zoos all over the country and all over the world. I mean we got stuff in from Singapore Zoo. We've got some himself come from Australia. I mean we work with zoos all over the world.

In London over Brexit, more than that, the ability of democracy, parliamentary democracies such as Great Britain to transform itself in the face of obstacles, the story. So far says that the Prime Minister Theresa may is extremely unpopular because of our inability to convince a majority of her own party to endorse her Brexit plan leaving the EU in adequate time the final vote is now delayed until the end of October of this year. But that opens up lots of maneuvering in Great Britain futures since we've all agreed. According to the economists that Theresa May will not be the. Premier in two twenty twenty Gregory very good evening to you. I know that complicating all this for American voters because after all every two years or four years we've vote for this party or that party, very fixed. But there's another election coming up an election for the European Union that introduces a wildcard into the British parliamentary system, what is the Brexit party? Where did it come from? Why is it suddenly popular? Good evening to you. Good evening. John bell. It is interesting elections was forthwith kinds of probabilities and possibilities. But the European Union the European parliament elections coming up this month and actually Britain was not due to contest those elections again because it it should have withdrawn from from the European Union by the state the fact that the the British parliament agreed with the European Union to delay the British until October amid the that the UK head to once again contest, you opinion, European parliamentary elections. So the Brexit potty, which we knew was in the wings because because it was announced in January that that it would be formed in the event that that they record it, neca. And it was it was announced Lasi at the behest. All Nigel Farraj who had established and run the potty United Kingdom into independence potty. Now. He'd lift you Kip because it's not the become a haven for all of the extremists. If you like who opposed to to the present government, but so Nigel left that once it wants, the it became clear that Britain would have a referendum on on the withdrawal from the European Union Nigel tell me a couple of years ago that if Britain didn't exit on schedule made promise to. He would get back into politics. Pullman new poppy and go to the jugular if you like against the existing British potties. So the job of the Brexit potty is to contest the the may parliamentary European parliamentary elections right now. Brexit' body looks like it's going to take about thirty percent of the British fights for those British say to that that's way ahead of presentable Leiva, which which has been looks like it will take about twenty one percent of the votes conservative. The county ruling potty take about thirteen percent of the vote the Liberal Democrats ten to the green party nine percent. And and so on so basically you've got a wreck potty which from to to now has. Closed itself to to gather a huge following on much in mind of the beginning of may, actually, the the Brexit potty launch website and invited membership within two days. Some eighty five thousand people to join the party at twenty five pounds a head. So that raised about two point eight million dollars than an anonymous data put in another hundred thousand pounds, and then one of the conservative party biggest diners cannon city would not support the conservatives anymore and gave an immediate two hundred thousand pounds about you know, close to three hundred to two hundred eighty thousand so sixty two hundred sixty thousand US dollars. So now, we've got this party which is getting a lot of fund. It's got candidates across the board. It's registered as a British political party. So it can can contest elections across the United Kingdom. This is this is very significant because when the elections take place, and if as we expect the vixen potty will take the bulk of the of the British in the European parliament, then Farraj will tell us if it's too domestic creating Brexit. So therefore, the Brexit party is not an end in itself because natural Farraj does not believe in the European Union, nor does he believe that Britain. Will Britain's future is in your opinion. He's running for parliament, he well, he just he discourages a Britain to pay attention to in future, the European Union parliament, he's and and the way to interpret then this than is that he's setting up himself as a power in the British parliament. But he's not going to have a seat there. So how did he go from doing very well in the headline? Lines for the parliamentary vote in Brussels to doing very well in the the next election for Britain. Well, obviously win the next election takes place. The Brexit potty as registered Patty cannon will field candidates that already. They polling for a forthcoming election shipping, it takes place within the next year or so which is quite likely would would put the Brexit potty as one if the most significant hottie in Westminster, and it could pull McCullough's and govern paps with the Tories the rump of the Tory potty, but we have to wait and see that makes you could continue to gain momentum. I think that stayed will have to obviously lay out a comprehensive program of a policies. It may need actually also a change its name. So that it. Doesn't look like a one note when the song. And I think that's quite within the Cavs. But right now, not you'll prize wants to galvanize the potty around the immediate objective of saving Britain from being lost into the into the European Union forever, which is basically the alternative which MRs may. And Jeremy Cohen, the leader of the labour party, maybe taking now the vote is not gonna be enough Taybeh to determine what the Britain's gonna do. It's gonna be in June. This is going to be the fourth time. This is my his taken to parliament proposal to leave the European Union with the deal, which means luck. It's a into long-term trade deals with or a customs union of a sewed with European Union. Jeremy Cohen wanted to keep Britain in the European Union as a member of a customs union, which would preclude Britain from creating trade deals with the United States, Canada, India, Australia, and the like which which is. The logical step. So what what we want to see from from Nigel Farraj is if he tackles that he would want to see Britain withdrawal without a deal. So that it's free to create trade deals with all of its great trading partners. Greg the Brexit party. I understand it's in Susie Azam that's responding to a new way forward. But do we know who it's a -tracting is it attracting Tories is it attracting the liberals is that attack attracting the breakaway labor? It's attracting people from all of those parties all of the major parties the the old left, right? I is not playing as well as it. Once did the the the labor and Britain, nor the conservatives actually seemed to stand for what they used to stand for or the reality may be that those positions within the British political spectrum on a longer balance. So so essentially, we are seeing a break up traditional politics in Britain. The same way as we we've seen it in in in France. But of course, the French have a greater tendency to move politically to create new potties lousy because of the interruption of World War Two which left them in a position where they they rebuild from scratch getting rid of the rump of the labor party, the conservative party, and the Liberal Democrats is gonna be the difficult thing. But if Brexit body comes in as a sizable force, then I think we'll see even more defections going along down the line. And maybe even a Benchley merger of whatever the new Brexit. Potty calls it self and the conservatives I'm speaking with Greg Copley way are speculating about possible turns in the road for Great Britain because of the paralysis that's Gregory that Greg uses that word in the headlines first analysis paralysis of the British parlor.

Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg And Tim Cook discussed on Daily Tech News Show
"New York Times article out today by a team sheera? Frankel nNcholas confiscatory Cecilia king. Matthew, Rosenberg, Jack Necas detailing insight meetings at Facebook, they based their reporting on interviews with more than fifty people, including government, folks, people inside of Facebook, former employees former executives at cetera, and there are many revelations in this article a lot of them have to do with the Russian election stuff. Some of that is just sort of saying a little more about who knew what when. Among the revelations that are a little more than that though. Apparently Facebook employed, a Republican opposition research firm. This is something that a lot of companies do so I know a lot of people like they did what they were digging dirt on their companies while there wouldn't be the first company to do that. But this firm was hired to discredit activist. Protesters in part by linking them to liberal financier. George Soros Justin can explain more. But if you're on the right hearing that someone's linked to George Soros is basically like saying, they're a villain. So Facebook was trying to discredit these protesters that way they were lobbying a Jewish civil rights group to cast some criticism of the company is anti semitic, including a protest poster that showed sucker Bergen Sandberg's head on an octopus in gripping the world and the one that's getting the most headline in the tech circles. Tim Cook's criticisms of Facebook infuriated, Mark Zuckerberg so much allegedly. He ordered his management. Team to use only Android phones, arguing that the operating system had far more users than Apple's. Now Facebook has posted a point by point rebuttal of a lot of the accusations. Particularly the accusations that they were knowing about the Russian election stuff before they made progress in that they drag their feet, they say, they didn't it's a little bit of a he said she said, particularly on the Tim cook stuff they say that they were ordered. They were never ordering actually what they didn't say anything particularly refuting this. They said they have always encouraged their employees to use Android phones because it is the largest market of users out there. And in a call with reporters. Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook is going to create an independent oversight committee in two thousand nineteen where people can appeal decisions for content to stay up or down on Facebook. Now Facebook will create this. But the idea is it'd be like an ombudsman they'll put impartial people or attempts to put impartial people on it. And if you if you have some content that is up that you think should have been brought down and you reported it to Facebook, and they didn't take it down or vice versa. Some content got reported and was taken down. And you don't feel like it should have you'll be able to appeal to this oversight committee who will decide little once. And for all what is allowed to be posted on Facebook,

And the idea of repeating runs over over again until you get better and can actually beat the final boss. That is, that is this game. And this is on a road game summed up perfectly and that that's why tomorrow we'd really captures the feeling of mastering video game. But I've also been playing another side, scrolling action, game salt and sanctuary. I know if I bought dark souls on this podcast before that extremely punishing very difficult series of dark fantasy RPG action games, salting sanctuary is a. It's a riff on the dark solar system. Pretty much takes everything. It's dark souls, but puts it into a side stroller. So instead of being a three game, you're moving back and forth Mario style, but a really good rip off. It's economy.

"Well, I, I hope that that you enjoy it and that you don't go into cardiac cardiac arrest anytime standards so someday, but not yet, Brad, what have you been eating. I don't have anything super special this week, but I did stumble upon to new kinds of skills that you might find while you're out in about they have some crossover flavors. One of them was is an exclusive thing that you can only get at Dollar General stores there. It's called bright side and I'm gonna read the flavors up here in the back. Just a don't remember them all. So you in this one, you have watermelon. Paradise punch, Kiwi, banana, tangerine, and pink lemonade. Which is pretty good. It's actually, but those aren't the dollar journal sluice once those are just regular ones that I found that our new the Dollar General collusive ones are summer splash skittles and those have blue raspberry watermelon, Kiwi, banana, orange, and strawberry. I like these actually more than regular skills mostly because I'm more keen on tropical kind of flavors than I am. The regular fruit flavors at skittles usually offers. I kind of feel the same way about starburst. So these are pretty good. I picked up a couple of packs just because if I ever had tasted them again, I could just have him. But yeah, so if you if you can find them the bright side ones are in a yellow package and the summer splash ones are in like a kind of like a magenta package. All right. And I appreciate the fully work. He did there the crunching bag right next to the mic adds a little extra level to the show. So. To look at the to look at the fleas. No, I know. Our podcast. By the way you gotta talk, really, you basically have to whisper the rest of your selection. So I think we only have one more category left, and that is what we've been playing Jacob. What have you been playing lately? Like everybody else with the video game system. I've been playing dead cells, say new game by developer motion twin, and it's available on Microsoft. MAC, PlayStation four, Xbox One end does which so no matter what you have. You can play this game for twenty five dollars. So it's not a full price game. It's an indie game, but it's really worth that cost. I'm obsessed with. I've been playing nonstop. It's basic gist is that it's a, it's a rogue like which is you don't know videogame terms that means that it's run base. You do a run of the game, you die, you start over. And so the goal of the game is try to beat it in one run. And when you as you play through, you can click currencies, change your character, upgrade weapons by new things change your, how you play the game, but also upgrade ability. Stay with you when you recent. So you're chasing here to within the run, which also change character in the overall game and making it easier to come back each time you play, which means that the more you die, the strong you get and the easier it is go longer than game. I saw haven't beaten it. I've magic to me the fourth or fifth level, and it's really terrific. The combat feels great. The so many different types of weapons and items caters. You trying to find combinations because the what you get each level is randomized, so you never know what you'd have to make do everything. So force you to get good with everything. And the liberals are always randomized, you play, you do not know where things are going to be. It's impossible to memorize and just has to sort of edition of being a really well playing game with mechanics. I enjoyed a lot has really kind of great Iki atmosphere set in this fantasy prison, and your character is a decapitated corpse who's been taken over by mysterious force of some kind whose. So you're playing on the the idea being that whenever you die, you go back and get a new body. It sets a really, really dark and twisted assumes very funny angled for this on which to hanging this really, really fun gang while game play. I was going to say that this reminded me of edge of tomorrow a little bit the Tom Cruise movie, but then your description of the.

"Long plane trip, I really enjoy watching movies that I would not have paid for or I just missed in theaters and it was, and they are totally fine movies. But I ended up watching rampage the Dwayne Johnson movie based on the video game that I never played, but and I also end up watching ready player one and molly's game, which I don't want to categorize as one of the bad movies I watched the l. is actually a good film. It was there direct toil debut of Aaron Sorkin. But first rampage was lot more brutal than I anticipated. I kind of wanted it to be a fun, Dwayne Johnson, rob romp, but it started off with like this horrific death. And then just like start kept adding on all these more horrific deaths that were kind of allergic how calm. Skull island could have been very B-movie movie, but ended up being quite brutal and violent. I kinda got that sort of similar vibe as well, and then ready player one which I know some people love. I'm going to say I did not. It was just kind of cacophonous mess to me. I did fall asleep a one point and which is kind of amazing to me because there's just so much happening on the screen. And I think just because there's so much happening, there's there's so much visual information that they're throwing at you. I just got overwhelmed in my eyes retires. I just kind of drifted off a couple of times. I am not. I said that I'm not a big fan of the book. I will say it's better than the book because at least it's not just, you know, a one page basically listing off Wikipedia references of like every eighties property and it feels less like is just writing on the nostalgia and is more like a almost typical why aid dystopia movie. But. It's it was. Yeah, it was fine, not great molly's game. I did enjoy. I never got around to seeing this theaters and I kind of figured it'd be fine to see on a plane. 'cause Aaron Sorkin is a flood know much about his directing style. I've always kind of I kind of assumed that he would direct much like he writes in that he's on very visually. Strong was actually quite visually stimulating movie, and I enjoyed it. Jessica Chastain is great. It does kind of suffer from Sorkin ISM in that, like goes a little over long in wanders off in the last third of the film could definitely been a little bit more tight and condensed, but I, I thought it was a good film and I enjoyed watching that one much more than the other two stuff. So let's move into the what we've been eating category, Jacob. What have you been eating? Well, I normally don't chime in on the what we've been eating section. This is easy, Brad section of choice, but with. Fantastic. That's coming up soon and people coming into Austin as returning people or as guests for the first time of the city. I won't tell you about Torchy's Taco's which I've been on a kick recently. They're a local chain. It's not Mexican food.

"Show that aired on FOX and was cancelled and launched. The career helped launch the careers of people like James, Franco, and Seth Rogan and Jason Segel, and a ton of other A-List actors now. And it was created by Paul. Again, executive produced by Judd appetite and it's it's basically like. The the best special feature that you would find on a DVD and I actually don't own freaks and geeks on DVD. I watched it and we watched it on Netflix streaming there last time I checked, so I don't know. Maybe the DVD actually does have a know the box. That's maybe they, maybe it has a bunch of great special features on it, but I've never seen any of those. So this show which is the fourth episode of the first season of culture shock on any devoted entirely to freaks and geeks and just goes through the creation of it and has tons of interviews with all of the major players. And it was really great to watch. I mean, it's just that show is so good and watching these people reminisce about making it and how it affected their careers and sort of change the cultural landscape you, even though it was basically ignored at the time and treated really, really terribly by its own network was just a heartwarming kind of thing. So I just looked this up and you can watch it on. On a unease website right now. It's available until December thirty first twenty thirty five, which is kind of Larry to me the put such a specific date on it. But yeah, if you have a cable TV provider, you can log in with your info and just watch it right now on Anne's website. So that's culture. Shock freaks and geeks. What's the fourth episode of the first season of that show? That is what I've been watching HD. What have you been watching lately, said a cap off my crazy week. I got to see crazy. Rich Asians actually went to see it with my mom. I went to an early screening last week on Tuesday, and I have been looking forward to this movie for quite a while. Now I had read the book which I admittedly was not that impressed with just because it was a various of lightweight frivolous book, very much beach read, but crazy, rich Asians was a story that I think would have suited the move the big screen so well, and it did. I enjoyed this v. so much. It was basically like. The devil wears Prada meets every Jane Austen novel, a tale of class and culture and the clash of cultures and everything like that, and it was opulent and so fun to watch and also kind of paid homage a lot of great rom com as well. But most importantly, it had Michelle Yeoh just like tearing everyone a new one. And after wash that house, like I just want her to be my mom so she can degraded me and call me trash in her designer outfits, love her and would give her my firstborn children. So yes, crazy situations is great. The cast is great, especially Michelle Yeoh, but also constants. We've, of course, playing a very kind of starry eyed, Cinderella character, and it's such a fun such a real Fisher movie that identified with so much as an Asian American even though wasn't specifically about in Asian American family. It did sort of hit a lot of those cues, and yet it's it's a great film that I highly recommend, and especially if you want, if you're Asian American in your seeking to see a movie that represents you on the big screen or you're just looking for a refreshing rom comb because it has it, it works on so many of those levels. So that's out in theaters right now issue. What did your mom think about it? She loved it. She's already planning of big family trip to see it all together. So she was very excited. She definitely wants to go visit a Singapore now and eat all the food there. There are a lot of good food scenes by the way. I think that like the food just as got. Got his just put good treatment as the fashion did Bill. Awesome. So you've also been watching some things that don't quite live up to that level of quality? No, I think I talked about this before, but whenever I go on a.

"Was surprised because Spike Lee is very hit or miss for me as a director, but this is like his most accessible and and like you can really feel the passion in his storytelling. Here. This is one of the best scripts that I think he's worked with in a long time. The acting is all really great. Adam drivers really good in this movie. Washington is really solid in the lead role and the movie. I mean, it is just it is Spike Lee, laying it out on the line and making a film that that speaks to our current moment in a way that you know, like I feel like sorry to bother you earlier this year. I'll. Also felt like a movie that was very twenty eighteen and black klansman I think blows that out of the water because it basically just, you know, in that regard because it it anchors the release of that movie to current events and very, very recent events and it. It draws this line between a an undercover cop who infiltrates the KKK in the nineteen seventies to modern events and the Trump presidency, and how far we've come as a society or in this case, how really not for we've come at all in a way that that makes those distinctions very clear and very, you know, the movies like borderline over the top when it comes to being didactic and sort of hammering, it's it's point home, but I feel like we are living in a time right now where the that point needs to be made over and over and over again about how. Like white supremacists not is not something that we should be accepting as a society. So anyway, look, I said, listen to the flash phone, cast full review of black klansman. That episode just came out. I think yesterday, so you can listen to that right now. And then the last thing that I've been watching is a culture shock freaks and geeks. So culture shock is a new show on a and e. and I didn't. I would never have known about the show if I didn't see people like Seth Rogan tweeting about it, not too long ago.

It's actually doing something really similar to what sharp objects is doing where it's about this woman and her trauma and her past with her mother and her sister and sharp objects.

This is probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen, and I'm sure they'll get me in trouble because this film is being sponsored funded by Fangoria and everyone's very excited that Fangoria is back. And so am I. But this movie is bad. It ended and I was just furious and it actually ends on a cliffhanger because I guess they want to turn this into a whole new franchise.

Littlest Reich is terrible, and I'm someone who can really get down with shitty Har Har movies that I know are bad, but I can still like, and this is just the opposite end of that where it's just it's not even like entertaining. So go to hell puppet master the lowest Reich. That is unfortunate because this was written by s. Craig's, who's the guy who wrote and directed bone Tomahawk a couple of years ago. And that was like one of my fate. I think that was my favorite movie of two thousand fifteen. When I came out, I was very taken with that film and I thought the script was fantastic, and then it Zoeller has just been like on this downward decline. In in terms of, you know, in in my opinion, in terms of writing, it's like the movie that he did with Vince Vaughn. The name of it is escaping me right now. They're all himself blocked ninety nine s? Yes, exactly what a piece of garbage that movie is. Yeah, it's not good. And then it sounds like this is also not very good. He has another one coming up called dragged across concrete with Mel Gibson coming out. I'm just like God. Nothing about that sounds appealing to me. So it's it's unfortunate to see him sort of the fall off so sharply, but Jacob, have you seen the new puppet master movie yet? Nope. I've heard. I heard Christophe reaction, and I've also heard other reactions, I know that friend of the site MK's an occasional writer for us Jacob night who loves trash. He like loves trash movies of all kinds and shapes. He adored it in wrote about it on louis's death and Jacobs got a guy who, like I said, likes movies that like really are off putting an unpleasant and likes bigoted that. But I think his opinion will be the minority one when more people get to see this because I think Chris reaction seems to be the one people are kind of quietly muttering about because they don't want to. I think some people are maybe worried about upsetting folks, Gloria, because there's a truly wonderful team working there..

"And it looks like somebody like seventh grader using Photoshop stretch out somebody's face and it never. It's not a good creative in any way whatsoever. Like the moment. You see it. I shuttered because I thought who approved this. We thought this was a good idea has had to go through so many people just like visual effects, artists director writers producers had to look into effect and say, yeah, that's fine. That'll do. But I movie just gets worse, go too long, and it's just a a nightmare to endure. And this is like studio. Blunt house at hand in releasing upgrade the site. Actually, we earlier this year which is a, it'll be probably be for similar amounts of money. That's great. So. Interesting thing if you like playing Russian roulette with them by I always, I always find something to talk about the very least anybody else suffer through his garbage, or is it just me? I feel Chris will be the only one who even has a chance of seeing this. I did not. I saw the trailer for it, and I said, boy, that looks really bad. So I have yet to see it. If you never shows up on like Netflix, I'll probably watch it as I'm doing other things. But now I have yet to see it. Okay. So that's truth or dare watch at your own peril, apparently bread. What have you been watching? We dare you watch true. They're there. You shut up. What have I been watching? What am I saying? Oh. So yesterday I went to go see eighth grade for a second time. I haven't seen it since I saw at Sundance and funnily enough. My mom mentioned that she wanted to which I was surprised by because usually it's scary. Movies are the ones that she likes to go out of our way to see. And it's not often that her attention is caught by an indie movie like that until maybe it gets nominated for an Oscar or something like that. My mom's a very, a, very general audience kind of movie goer. But apparently like a lot of moms do sometimes she was off this summer that she works at a school and she saw segment on the today show with Bo Burnham and Elsie Fisher, and that was enough to convince her to see it. So we went to see it yesterday and she absolutely loved it. I love I still loved it. A second time, the movie is just so charming and terrifying and perfect, and just it's, it's just a wonderful movie. And I hope that people still get a chance to to go see. They had those free screenings last week for people, and it's just something that I hope people can go. Apparently it's one of the highest grossing Indies of the year so far. So at least some people are seeing in. I hope that it gets a good life when it comes out on home video when people start spreading it around, I saw this movie as well, and I'll just talk about it briefly here. And I, I think I mean, we've really said almost all there is to say about the film, but I also really enjoyed it. And I feel like Brad, your mom likes horror movies. This movie kind of is a horror movie in some respects. So I feel like it's not too far afield from her. Her typical stuff. Yeah, it'll say Fisher so good in this in this movie. And I mean, just echoing what everybody says about this. It's just kind of amazing that like a guy in his Bo Burnham's like not even thirty yet. Right? Like he's late twenties? Yeah. In his late twenties was able to tap into. Making a movie that feels so specific to a whole to everyone, really. I mean, it's it's not just like the female experience, but which he captures pretty well from the women that I've talked to have been. You've seen this movie, but like there are a lot of things that that sort of transcend gender in this movie that everyone who suffered through middle school experience. So. It was a great movie and everyone should definitely see it. It's it's very, it's so good for especially for a direct debut, I think..

"So you heard it here first. So what we've been watching Chris, you've segue dust in with breaking bad, but Jacob, what have you been watching lately, I'm going up too much. It's been pretty homebody of a week. Crime spree sitting around watching ER on Hulu. But I, I did find obvious child on Netflix, watch together with my wife, and we've saw when it came out in theaters in two thousand fourteen and I wanna say it's vanished, but it's definitely we kind of fall under the radar when I think it's is really charming and wonderful deserves to be received, rediscovered on Netflix, it's Jenny slate SARS as a struggling student comedian New York City who becomes pregnant and decides to get an abortion, and it follows that decision and her relationships with their various friends and family. And it's just it's totally non judgmental, very funny, very charming film. It's directed by Jillian ropes beer, and it's eighty four minutes long. And it's in many ways, very traditional, New York Centric rom com except that it's an abortion. But at the same time, it's it's not like in your face, dark, offensive thing. It's very honest and real. And I'm curious if you guys saw this when it came out over revisited recently because they liked him more to second time around. At home that in the theater I have not seen this movie. Has anybody else on the show seeing this? Yeah, yeah. So I to play at Sundance and I've rewatching a couple times since then I, I love it. It's so good. Jenny slate is fantastic in it. It's just, yeah, it's it's such a great movie. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely seek it out. You got, I heard people several people raving about it, so I got to catch it when I saw that was on Netflix, and I really enjoyed it. It's kind of a much quieter sort of subtle movie than I just paid. But Jenny slate is so good. I think those kind of the beginning of the Jenny slate assault. So that was fun to see. Yes, I agree. It was. I actually, I think I had this in my last streaming column I mentioned or the one before it, and I was actually when it came out, I was expecting Jenny slate to get like award season love because I thought she was so good in the movie end. She got totally ignored, which I thought was really strange. Like, because I, I honestly think she gives a phenomenal performance in this, but I guess maybe the film was too controversial. I don't. I don't know, but I was expecting more attention door Ord season and it didn't get it. Yeah. So Jacob, what else have you been watching on? Obviously on the spectrum because I like to see what's going on with the harsh genre with highs and lows. I rented truth or dare on Amazon prime in hopefully truth or dare. This is a movie from house came early this year, and I don't know about what blame house. Their financial model is essentially, here's a couple million dollars. Go make what you want and we'll see what you come up with. If it's great, we'll put in theaters or spiral put in theaters or thump interview d. it's very much hands off studio, Jason bump who runs it seems it's kind of like half eighth until make your either may something great for the money or make something terrible and they can sweep on the rug would spend so little on it. That's fine. And sometimes it's produces whiplash or get out or you compare them about tippety this time you get truth or dare, which is the worst film bloom houses ever put in theaters. I have seen worst house films on the OD. I have never seen one that was released as bad as this is directed. By Jeff wad load and kick ass and it stars Lucy HALE is a college student goes into Mexico with their friends. Go soon. Abandoned church plays a game of truth or dare it starts being haunted by Beeman forces done the play truth. Dare at random points usually ending in their deaths or humiliations and it is. I don't know where to begin the premises sort of it follows in a way in that this game is infecting people come in contact with, but the moment we were in trouble was when somebody gets pulled into the game registrations around them took take on his demonic this odd to say truth or dare demand them make a choice..

"But during the occasion, we decided to just start rewatching breaking bed from the beginning because you know, better call Saul is airing now, and I'm, I'm reviewing it for the site. And my wife has actually only seen like one or two episodes a better call Saul. So she wanted to start watching it, but she also wanted to re watch breaking bad. I and I haven't really watched break breaking beds since the beginning. So we went back and said, are we watching that? And as a result, I really, I remember that Paul has his book covering entire series, so I decided to just get that and read it while they were there and it's great. It's an easier. I read it in like two days and it just see how it goes through literally the entire series. Covers casting and all that stuff. It's a really informative book and as a reward breaking bed. The first season does not hold up. I know that's gonna be sacrilege for some people who think this is like the best show ever made. The first season is a bit wonky. It's a little more off kilter than I remember. You can tell when they first started, they thought of it as more of like a comedy, like a dark comedy. And then by the time you get into season to the show really starts to become this much darker drama. And that's when I think the show becomes the great show that everyone remembers it as, but that first season is a little awkward. So. That's part of the reason why I said before, where I think better call Saul is a better show because better call Saul from the beginning, at least in my mind has been great, and it hasn't had a bad season yet, whereas breaking bad that I just doesn't quite work as well as the rest. But we're up to season four now and I'm loving, I'm loving it. I'm remembering why you know it's such a good show to begin with. Yeah, that's yet that show is so great. And I think I'm right there with you. I joined the breaking bread, the breaking bed hype, train a little bit late in the game. I think I came on board the show when it was first airing, probably sometime around season three. So I did the whole catch-up thing back then. And I remember watching the pilot and loving it. And then the first season sort of dropped off in quality a little bit. And I was like, wait, this is the show that everybody's talking about. But once you sort of get through that first season, I think you're right. I think that's when it really starts to pick up steam a little bit and just for those who don't know by the way, Alan seven wall is like a famous TV critic. I think he. Writes for Rolling Stone right now, and he has been. He wrote a episode by episode recaps of breaking bad as it was airing, and he has a a relationship business relationship with Vince Gilligan the creator. So I think he has a bunch of interviews and stuff in a breaking bad one, o one is that right? Chris interviews with the creators and all of that. Yeah. Yeah, that's he'll again is interviewed and Bryan Cranston pretty much every almost everyone involved with the show. He talked to them for the book to get their insight into like certain episodes in certain seen. So it has a lot of great just details about just the making of the show as well as recaps and reviews. Very cool. Okay. So Chris, I was wondering if you've heard about the next book that he's doing with Matt Zoller sites is going to be same thing, but the sopranos. Yes, I have heard about that. I'm very excited to get that comes out in January, so I'm really looking forward to that. Awesome. Yeah, I, I guess this is the time for me to admit that I have never seen the sopranos and like q the gasps all around for. I know I either guys. He's working to Chris can organize a site-wide rewatch sopranos podcast gonna write about it and we're going to do this sometime soon. Mark my words listeners hold me to this by two thousand nineteen every single person on the staff. We'll be watching sopranos in writing. You're talking about it. All right..

"They are the exact action figures. I always wanted as a kid because all the figures that they ever made when I was younger, that tried to look like an internal figures for the turtles from the movie. Never really quite lived up to how they looked in the movie, especially when they started changing the design a little bit towards teenage community turtles three. And they had, you know, different reptile spots. And they kind of looked like they had some kind of skin disease, but these new figures Neka are quite possibly the best movie action figures that I've ever seen. They have replicated the design of the turtles perfectly all the, they all look exactly like they should. It's a, it's an NFL package that looks like the act. Actual original VHS box. It even has like artificial wear on the boxes on it, self, all the turtles come with their weapons and slices of pizza and a canister of ooze. And they're just like the coolest, I could not be more happy that I was able to snag this this figures that so, Brad, let me ask you this, what do you do with these? Because I know you're, you're a collector. Do you get any enjoyment out of like, are you? Are you one of those kinds of people that refuses to take them out of the box or do how does that work view now? I mean, like when it comes to any pretty much any new action figures that I buy. I'm taking him out of the box because these aren't figure that I'm intending to sell at any point and I get joy from setting them up in cool poses and like kind of replicating scenes for movies in putting them on display so that you can really see how cool they are. So that's pretty much what I do with most of my figures, especially when it comes to like high, collect Star Wars, black series figures and things. That I have some old like other stuff that I haven't taken a packet from when I was a little bit younger and like within the collecting, but like most of the new stuff that I buy, like I said, take package. And so these I will. I haven't gotten them out to like set them up yet. But when I do like all the figure out something for him and let me one more question. Do you cross contaminate franchises like will you have one of these turtles, like riding on the back of the ACTA one or something or or is that all you know is everything very clearly delineated? I haven't yet, but I have been toying with the idea. No. Yeah, but yeah, I, I've been thinking about it, but I, I don't know it. It wouldn't be too difficult. Like I mean, there's there'd be some fun crossover to do between the Ghostbusters figures and industrials figures that I have since they're both in, you know, from New York and stuff. But yeah, I don't know. It's something that I think about every now and then, but haven't really executed yet. But I, I might do it at some point. Okay. So that's the the Neka teenage mutant ninja turtle action figures for me. I, my wife and I are planning a big vacation next month. We're going to Iceland and Ireland and we bought a drone. I think it was two weeks ago and we like to make travel videos when we're out, not necessarily like one of those, you know like, hey, guys, Gucci kind of travel video, but just more of like a visual scrapbook kind of thing where it's basically just for us where we can look back on a trip, you know, and see the whole two weeks play out in like a ten minute period. So we went to. Zealand in two thousand sixteen and bought a drone for that. And we had the gopro karma, which is the the brand of drone that the gopro cameras company created and that brand or that drone ended up getting recalled because they were falling out of the sky. And basically you could tell that gopro spent all their time designing and building their cameras and not enough time designing and building their drone. So this time around, I bought the DJ maverick air which is DJ has like one of the best known drone manufacturers out there. So it's very a very different experience and a whole lot better an experience in terms of like the actual flight controls and the options that you have, and it's really cool..

But let's talk about what we've been up to guys Jacob. What have you been doing lately? I've been doing lots of adult things like going to Kia, realizing that does not carry the thing I need leaving angrily. More exciting than that. I went and bought a new car or more specifically, my wife and I bought a new car. The lease on her, a Nissan rogue was up and we went out in search of new vehicle and rather than lease. Again, we had the by and to think about buying cars for us as a as my wife always puts it. We don't buy cars as much. You go to car fittings to see cars. We can fit it in because I'm six foot four. She's five hundred, eleven and cars aren't made me. Like at the Nissan dealer, I was hitting my head on doorframes constantly at even though it's not a cool car. We ended up going with the Ford flex. It was pretty much think of it as a a modern station wagon. We have kids, we have dogs. So we're for that. That is great trunk base. And most importantly, I actually have the sprawl Ben. I can actually literally sprawl in this car and I can't sprawl an end the other car ever. So, yeah, I'm sure we make news about taking like, oh, why did you buy that terrible car whose how it killed my father. But no, I'm very, I'm very happy with the Ford flex so far. I really hope we don't get an Email saying that the Ford flex killed anyone spot, but you never know if you want to send us an Email. You can do it at Peter at slash phone dot com. Okay. So Brad, what have you been up to lately I finally received my Neka teenage mutant ninja turtle action figures that were a San Diego comic con exclusive.
