Moderna's Covid-19 Vaccine Is 94.5% Effective in Early Results, Firm Says
"Moderna has gone public with his experimental vaccine, the biotechnology firm says early results suggest that its vaccine is nearly 95% effective. Today's news follows a similar announcement from Fizer last week, and it leaves the incoming administration with the prospect that it will have a least to Corona virus vaccines to distribute and 2021 Dr. Celine Gounder is part of the President elect's Coronavirus Task Force. She's a clinical assistant professor of medicine and infectious diseases at New York University. She's also host of the podcast epidemic, and she joins us now, Dr Gounder. Welcome to one, eh? Great to be here. So what does it mean that two potential vaccines are both showing signs of success. Well, this is quite promising. Both appear at least based on the data we've seen so far to be over 90% effective in preventing disease. We don't yet know if these vaccines will prevent transmission from one person to another. But at least we know that they're they're very likely to protect us individually from severe disease. This is really a breakthrough. But we still have a lot of work ahead in terms of getting people vaccinated. It's not just about having a vaccine, but it needs to get into people to protect them. What's the timeline from here in terms of when we could possibly either see a vaccine approved but definitely on the distribution and as well? Well, I think you're going to see in the next couple of weeks. The submission to the FDA by both Visor and Madonna for emergency use authorization. They will continue to collect data on effectiveness and side effects as they start to ramp up vaccination in advance of an approval. But I think we're still looking at Really focusing on health care workers and other high risk populations in the first wave of vaccinations in at the end of this calendar year earlier early next calendar year. And we won't really see these vaccines available to the broader general public until at least April or may of next year, And that's because it takes time to manufacture. The millions the hundreds of millions of doses that we're going to need and to gear up in terms of the distribute that distributions supply chain and with the Fizer vaccine, there's a specific type of infrastructure needed. The story that it has to be. It started very cold temperatures. So how would that impact the possible world out of that vaccine? Well, that's right. So the Fizer vaccine requires ultra cold, ultra freezing minus 70 degrees Celsius. This is not something that you have in your regular family doctor's office s so it really is going to need to be stored. In central locations, perhaps hospitals, other pharmacy distribution centers, and so that does make it much more difficult. This is not something that you could, you know, disseminate to every single family Practitioners office and makes it more difficult, especially in rural areas to really scale of vaccinations. This is something people are thinking long and hard about right now. To figure this out. We got this question from Dr Swat on Twitter who says what have the potential side effects of the vaccines. And how much will they cost? Do you know that yet? Well, we don't have all of that information. Yet In terms of the Madonna vaccine, with the results of which were just announced, the side effects that we're seeing are pretty mild pain at the injection site, headaches, muscle pain on and it's a similar sort of profile with the fire advisor vaccine and really the kind of thing you see. With many vaccines in terms of cost. The Biden Harris transition team is very much committed to making sure that people who want to get vaccinated can get vaccinated for free. That's not just with respect to the vaccine itself, but with all of the other costs associated with getting vaccinated the doctor's visit The supplies. Unfortunately, one of the things we saw earlier this year with respect to testing was that the current administration had said Yes, people can get tested for free. But then people got surprised bills. Because there was still the cost of the doctor's office visit and so on. Are how closely are you working with the Trump Administration on a Corona virus response at this point Not at all. Um you know, a major challenge here is that the G s a needs to certify that we could move forward toe hand over the keys, so to speak, so we can enter the building so we can start to have these kinds of conversations in detail and so right now, pending the General Services Administration, signing off on Theologian results. We really are in a holding pattern on or not able to have those crucial discussions. So we got this question from Alicia on Facebook. Who says Can Biden's team start work now? The end of January so far off what? We lose progress? What are you able to do right now? Well, we can be interfacing with state and local government officials, public health officials, we could be reaching out to the private sector. Um, s O. We're certainly moving forward in terms of our own planning. But, you know, if you imagine that this is a war we're waging war on the current virus. And like any other war if we were in the middle of a world war and we didn't know where our aircraft carriers and our tanks and our troops were, it would be very difficulty to plan. A response s. Oh, it's it's very challenging, not to be given sort of that critical crucial What's really frankly national security information?
Its time to talk about voting technology. No, not that kind of voting.
"The pandemic has forced lawmakers around the world to get creative about passing legislation but in the us members of congress still have to show up to vote in person or have another member cast a proxy vote on their behalf but a report out last week by the house administration committee says congress could conduct remote voting if it wanted to securely and with existing technology beth. Simone novak studies the impact of technology on governing as a professor at new york. University's tannin school of engineering. She says remote voting is already happening in other countries and in several. Us states via apple or roll. Call by phone. You know when we have our voices or our faces that's the best form of authentication of who we are. It's no different in many ways as we've seen from all of us working online that we can simply of express our opinion out loud this on zoom the same way we do in real space. It's really not the technology so much. That's the issue at the technology exists for members of congress to securely vote remotely during the ongoing coronavirus epidemic and we've already seen lots of uses of zoom and other of videoconferencing technologies to allow for example committees to me and the business of lawmaking. Go on around the world to if the house administration committee says it safe and already available. Why the pushback. So we've seen over the course of the pandemic. there were a lot of people from both sides of the political aisle who were worried about turning congress into a museum but people felt that really. This went against tradition. This went against the way the people were used to doing things. Don't forget that from legislators used to doing business in the hallways and face to face doing zoom meeting or doing a webex or getting online to have a meeting that was completely new and in fact training was needed to get people used to the idea of having a committee meeting online then part of it. Frankly is party politics and just objecting for the sake of objecting. One of the advantages of virtual committee meetings that you've had more openness. It's been more accessible to people who may not be able to fly to washington to testify for example do you see voting also potentially increasing If you don't have to be there in person. So we've seen examples from around the world of legislatures who have seen their attendance rates and participation rates. Go way up not needing to miss a vote. Because they're in their home district or need to be a need to be somewhere else. So i think we definitely have seen instances of greater rates of participation. We've also seen the ability for for example committees to bring in witnesses from all over the world. Something very difficult today to do today during covid but even pre covid would have a hearing with a few witnesses who would usually come a potentially from where it's convenient near in the beltway area or the usual suspects. We have the ability to have much more diverse participation and more participation in hearings and. I think what's really exciting. Is those legislatures that are turning to technology not simply to do what they do offline but do it online it's those who are really using technology to innovate in new ways to do what i like to call crowd law in other words to use technology to engage the public in the legislative process. So we're seeing lots of examples of this kind of crowd law innovation taking advantage of new technology to hear from more people more diverse people and to engage ordinary people in a process. That's typically been done of really far away from them and often to much behind closed doors but lawmakers could have problems connecting to the internet right. I mean we've seen some government officials lose their connections during committee meetings. Is the infrastructure ready for this. We have to take some baby steps to ensure that we have backup plans in place right. That's why in brazil they have a system that both works with an app and with the telephone. So there's a backup plan. I've been a witness in a congressional hearing and the person who testified with me had to do so frankly from her car because it was the only place that she could get reliable connectivity we have the tools and techniques and the processes in place that can allow us to develop procedures that will work including with backup plans so that people can for example is they're doing in other countries vote maybe not during the hearing but afterwards so they have a window of time in which they can actually register their participation if they can't get online then well and a reminder of the stakes here which is you know if you have people talking in the halls and having having backroom meetings that's potentially spreading covid. Do you think there will be more pressure on the house to adopt to take this step. In the coming months i think with especially with a change in administration and a posture. That will be really much more proactive. In terms of things like mask mandates social distancing requirements and public health and safety measures. I think we're also going to see some a changing culture and when you keep in mind the fact that the average age of a senator is sixty three. The average age of a member of the house is fifty eight and again. The cove is rising all over the united states. I think we're going to see both the necessity of really instituting procedures that help keep people safe but also really a change in culture in really trying to demonstrate for the american people the right ways to work safely and to act safely and that's going to create pressure. I hope for greater uses of these technologies. Frankly it's not cova today. It could be a natural disaster tomorrow. We have to be prepared to continue operations of government even the event of a disaster. We don't wanna be without the ability to legislate to provide the american people with services that they need to provide them with their stimulus checks and importantly to conduct oversight over the executive branch Especially in a crisis you know. We have the world's arguably most powerful national legislature and it deserves to have a modern and safe digital infrastructure. Beth novak directs the governance lab at.

The Conversation Between Buddhism and Science
"Was everyone gathered again? What were they trying to achieve by leaving Toledo? Yeah. Right so I grew up in. Alternative say alternative educational. Institution that was also a residential community, a on June, and this was in the nineteen seventies and it was called the Lindisfarne Association of. Lindisfarne. Is actually the name of Celtic Christian Monastery on the border between England and Scotland in the in the seventh eighth centuries in the dark ages. And the Lindisfarne Association where I grew up my father and mother were the founders of the of the organization and my father took the name Lindisfarne? Because he wanted a name that evokes the idea of learning the preservation of learning in the creation of new forms of learning in a time of crisis. In in the Dark Ages you could say, my father was a university professor. He was a professor of humanities at York University in Toronto. And he decided kind of at the height of his academic career. He had tenure he had published a number of books that he he didn't really feel that the universities were creating the kinds of learning and the kinds of individual and societal transformation that were needed for this time. This is early nineteen seventies, and so he quit his tenured position and he with. Seed funding money from a variety of different sources started the Lindisfarne Association and it started in Long Island new. York. So so we moved from Toronto to New York and then also we have center in New York City in Manhattan. And the idea was to bring together. Scholars Artists are religious scholars where teachers, spiritual teachers, philosophers, scientists, poets, activists, ecologists to bring them together into a conversation and also to create a residential community with curriculum of study in all of these different areas, and then of you could say spiritual practice at was a syncretic eclectic. That was represented by different teachers from different religious traditions in residence. For. The for the community members who were some of them were of all generations. So some of them were you know sort of drop out college students would come live there other were were older people obviously I was one of the kids who is growing up in this environment we had a we had a kind of alternative home schooling for the kids. As parts as part of the community and it was in this community in the studying that I really I was exposed to I. Guess You could say the Living Buddhism I had read about Buddhism. Kids books that my dad had given me. And so it was in that setting that I really encountered living Buddhism in the form of I. It was a teachers of Zen Buddhism. We had connections to the San Francisco's end center which at that time. was directed by the Abbot Richard Bay Karoshi he and my father knew each other and. Richard Baker she sent Zen monks, live the teachers there. And so that was kind of the environment in which I grew up as a as a kid. You mentioned that I think it was rid Anderson that came to the to the. Space. You noted how that change things for you. And so it got a little bit more or steer by the Read I. Think you are last. So you mentioned your eleven at the time. So you talk a little bit about that before and after
Time-keeping brain protein influences memory
"Air like short movies. If you fall off a bike, your brain will probably record the entire sequence of events that put you in pain that's known as an episodic memory. And now, scientists say they have identified cells in the human brain that makes this sort of memory possible. NPR's John Hamilton has more. They're known as time cells, and they were discovered in rodents years ago, but a team of researchers wanted to see if these cells also exist in humans. So they studied the brains of 27 people attempting a difficult memory task. This type of memory task is not one that like a rodent would be able to do that's Dr Brad Lega, a neurosurgeon at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Legacy's participants were asked to study sequences of words on a laptop computer. The words appear on the screen went after the other about 12 to 15 items at a clip. They're separated by a couple of seconds. Then, after a break, people were asked to remember the words. Meanwhile, scientists were measuring the activity of individual cells in the hippocampus and another brain area involved in the perception of time. This was possible because the people in the study already had electrodes in their brains as part of a treatment for severe epilepsy. Leggo says the team discovered certain cells that would fire at specific times during each sequence of words, the time cells that we found They're marking out discreet segments of time within this, like approximately 32nd window time stamps that helped people recall when they had seen each word And in what order? Legacy says The findings suggest that the brain uses the same approach. When we're reliving an experience, like falling off a bike, we remember the wind in our hair, then seeing the pebble on the road than the pain. So by having time cells create this indexing across time, you can put everything together in a way that Nixon's the time Self study appears in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Euribor, jockey of New York University, says it's important even though the result was predicted by experiments in animals. The final arbitrator is always the human brain. Jackie says The study helps explain the memory limitations found in people who have damage to the hippocampus. In one experiment, he says, scientists compared the memories of a group of people who had just Just a tour of a university, he says. The people without hippocampal damage all told, pretty much the same story first, because we have seen the fountain. And then there was a little girl who fell off the bike, Physical and so on. And these sequences are completely and absolutely gun in people Cos is probably because their brains don't have time cells to re create a sequence of events. But Jackie says time cells aren't like clocks. Their pace is constantly changing. Depending on factors like mood. You have to wait for the elections. Then every day is a long day. The same thing is gonna be asking, you know when it's covered over is very, very slow, but when you having a good time time flies, Jackie says. As a result, our perception of time isn't very reliable. John
If approved, UK to start controversial Covid vaccine challenge trial infecting patients
"Researchers are preparing for a step toward finding a corona virus vaccine a particularly terrifying step it's called a challenge trial and it means you give the vaccine to people, and then you expose them to the virus to see if the vaccine works. Channel trials are used to test vaccines for diseases like typhoid, cholera and malaria. The difference here is that if new vaccines for those. Illnesses do not work there at least ways to treat the people who've been infected for covid nineteen. Of course, there is no cure and treatments are still limited. So a challenged trial raises some real ethical concerns. Arthur Caplan is a bioethics professor at New York. University School of Medicine. We don't fully understand the Cobra virus we're going to give it to people intentionally make them sick. What if there's a death? What if there's long-term disability? What if things go really soured for the subjects? As, just GonNa look like an ethics catastrophe researchers in the United Kingdom? Still think challenge trial is worth it and they plan to try one

Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics. Then in nineteen, forty, four constance became the first black woman to be accepted to Columbia law school.

Some judges actually turned their backs on her and refused to hear her speak. But Constance didn't let others biopsies bar her from success. Her work made her a key player in the civil rights movement and she even occasionally represented Dr. Martin? Luther. King Junior. Constance was constantly in danger when she was working in the south racists threatened her life and the lives of other prominent figures in the black community constance was barred from staying in hotels.

One-fourth of New York City Transit workers caught COVID-19, NYU survey says
"Survey of New York City transit workers shows that nearly a quarter of them may have contracted covert 19 and those who became ill likely caught the virus at work. The survey was done by New York University. The results are significantly higher than an assessment from the state last May, at least 131 transit workers have died of the disease. Researchers hope to continue their study with a deeper dive into the mental health impact the pandemic has had on city transit workers.
Pottery Barn Starts Selling Used Goods
"Home goods retailer Pottery Barn has long been the mothership of quote Shabby Chic. It's Pricey. Items are often carefully designed to gently used even though their brand new that way you don't look like you're trying too hard right But now through a new partnership, the retailer is going to be offering up. It's returned bedding bath towels, table linens, and even bathrobes for sale to the masses. This stuff really has been. Gently used perhaps before you get a case of skin crawling anxiety over covid nineteen, hear me out the new initiative called Pottery Barn renewed is in collaboration with the renewal project. The company cleans and rehabs unsellable inventory including return items that would otherwise end up in landfills. Each item goes through the renewal workshops six step process to make it squeaky clean according to a pottery barn statement products are sorted, graded and thoroughly sanitized with water technology repairs are made if necessary then each item is inspected to ensure it meets quality standards only then does it get a renewal workshop tag certified items are listed for sale on the Renewal Workshop website. Pottery Barn is the first major retailer to partner with the renewal workshop. The company says, this is its first step toward becoming a quote circular business in other words is working to ensure that goods and materials are used for as long as possible. And the impact could be significant. The Renewal Projects Research found that more than eighty percent of what brands consider waste can be renewed and resold. Pottery Barn isn't the only posh retailer to try repurposing last month, modern home goods retailer West Elm got in the game it launched a sustainable line with Fashion Label Eileen Fisher using post. Consumer. Denim Waste Eileen Fisher is taken. Back more than a million garments to keep its label out of landfills the de Garments that were to damage to be worn were washed, repaired, and deconstructed. Then West Elm used them to create a line of pillow covers. Oh, and there's also a repurpose denim swivel chair that'll set you back about two grand west ELM has been working toward more sustainable products for a while. But it's not easy six years ago the company pledged that forty percent of all of its products would be fair trade certified by this year but it has only hit the twenty five percent mark according to Forbes the effort is complex. The company Says Finding, and certifying overseas factories is a difficult and stringent process especially when you're among the first to do so West Elm, does label its products is fair trade sustainably sourced organic or locally made among others. Roughly sixty percent of its product support. At least one of its sustainability initiatives dwell reports. These green business moves may be challenging, but they appear to be smart while the pandemic pummeled many brands early on New York University found that dollar volume sales of sustainable products increased by more than fifty percent and a recent report by research firm Carney found that more than half of consumers. We're more likely to purchase environmentally friendly products because of their covid nineteen experiences. So sure sells has been a Madison Avenue mantras since the Real Life Madman days but today the way to consumers hearts appears to be a little less saucy and little more sustained.

He's a New York, times bestselling author of two books including the book were diving into today irresistible the rise of addictive technology and the business of keeping US hooked his one of the most popular Ted talks. Ever with millions of US talking about this very subject. They were diving into today. He's been featured everywhere from the New York Times to the Atlantic wire popular science and Adam also has a PhD in social psychology from Princeton University where he focused on how people reach the judgments and make the decisions that shaped their lives, and now we're gonNA dive into this awesome powerful important conversation with Adam Alter Adam. Welcome to the model show. Thanks for hanging out with us today. Yeah. Thanks for having me Sean, good to be. So I've got to ask you first and foremost I want to know your superhero origin story because this topic is so palpable. So important but how in the world did you find yourself interested in this domain with tech in how it's kind of relating to our lives? I think the super the Superhero, the super power for an academic is that when we get interested in things that other people get interested in, we can actually studied them and that's what happened with me. I I. Think a lot of people were talking about tech, the encroachment of tech in their lives especially that personalized know I was sitting on the couch next to my wife, we'd spend two hours on our phones. We wouldn't be interacting with each other I remember being on a flight between New York and La, and I don't even remember the flight because I opened a video game on my phone. was an APP plated six hours landed and was like what just happened time melted away. So I think a lot of people probably millions of people who are experiencing some version of that in the roughly two, thousand, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen. But for me it, it was something that I had the capacity to actually study to investigate, and so I did I started to look into it and had a few critical questions like am I the only one experiencing this? The answer was very clearly no What what else is gripping us this way in what should we do about? It is something to be concerned about and that's how I got interested probably six or seven years ago. Yes and it through even through that time. Can you talk about first and foremost for us? Like you said is not you're not alone by a long shot but how has our investment in our time grown from? Prior, you know somebody just here in the studio, one of my guys and he wants to get a flip phone now since the flip phone to now, how is our investment time grown over time to getting on the Internet in in Tech? Yes. So we spent we spent about eighteen minutes touch to phones before the first iphone before two thousand seven. So you gave up like a stood of an hour everyday to your fun, which is not that much time some time but it's not that much time. Now today the average for an adult in the United States and it's very similar across the. Developed world is about four hours. So it's it's increased by a factor of about twelve thirteen fourteen and if you if you imagine that being expanded across the lifespan, we're talking between ten and twenty years of your life depending on whether you're alive or heavy user of the fun. So you're giving up effectively one or two decades of your life to this device. Unbelievable and the thing is even when you say that number I bet so many people like well, that's not me. How can you quantify that because a lot of people feel the same way until they get tracked, they think that they may be fifty percent of the time that they actually do. It's true in two thousand fifteen reached out to this guy who created now colt moment and Marmon was one of the first really sophisticated track is that to what you were doing on your phone how much time he was spending occasionally you get these Ping, sang a you happy with your engagement right now and he he said to me. Before you use it before you install it on your phone and tell me what do you think how long do you think spending on your phone and? He said to me most people have no idea and that was true for me too I guest and so I guess like. I thought an hour but just to be concerned about her I said, how about ninety minutes I'll say ninety minutes a day and I started using this track and was three three and a half hours a day. So I was I was under estimating by more than half and I said to him that's crazy that I have no idea how much time I'm giving up and it's such a lot of the white indict and he said it's totally typical most of us are using twice or even three times more than we think we are.
A Sustainable Startup Is Taking a Bite Out of the Toothpaste Market
"Something to chew on more than a billion toothpaste tubes or thrown away every year. That's the equivalent of fifty empire state buildings of discarded plastic tubes accumulating in landfills and oceans but wait isn't plastic recyclable. Well, that's what we thought. But earlier this month and NPR and PBS expose found that most recycling companies are only recycling milk jugs and soda. Bottles. That's Right Those Food Containers Yogurt Cups and other plastics that you painstakingly rinse out and throw into your recycling bin get buried in the landfill just like the other trash and toothpaste tubes typically have aluminum in them aren't recyclable at all. Now, one cheeky tooth care startup wants to clean up the sectors act bite toothpaste bits has one of those typical problem solving origin stories. Founder Lindsey McCormack was bothered by the toothpaste tube she threw away in her spare time she came up with a chewable tablet that foam just like her favourite paste the company rack up about fifty thousand subscribers in a year. Bite take sustainability. Seriously the tablets are vegan gluten free and packaged refillable glass jars subscribe to refills and they in sacks you can throw into a compost heap. McCormick also managed to ditch many of the chemicals found in typical household brands. She even made an appearance on his shark tank where she turned down a six-figure offer from Mark Cuban. McCormack said, she wanted to keep more control over the company Bite recently released a line of vegan plastic free dental floss. The startup will have to face down some goliath-sized competitors though toothpaste giant Colgate is making its own sustainability play overseas the brands smile for good toothpaste is nearly one hundred percent natural and certified Vegan most toothpastes can't be certified begin because the animal derived glycerin they use.

HD. p. e. actually is recyclable is the same plastic us to make milk jugs smile for goods much. anticipated. Packaging has a long time coming. It took the company five years to figure out how to make a recyclable plastic tube soft enough to squeeze. Parent company Colgate Palmolive says all of its products will have recyclable packaging within five years. Smile for good is being rolled out in Europe the company staying quiet on when or if it's coming to the US though these moves away from non recyclable plastics are good news for the environment, and if there are any silver linings to the horrors of this pandemic one may be this sustainability has more selling power consumers are more sensitive to the environmental impact of their purchases, according to progressive, Grocer magazine and July study by new. York University found that sustainability marketed products continue to grow during the pandemic even as other brands floundered. That priority is clearly not lost on companies ranging from scrappy startups, worldwide conglomerates that one a sink their teeth into a bigger space of the market share by.
NYU Freshman Dorm On Lockdown After 4 Positive COVID-19 Cases
"Rubin Hall freshman dorm. Oh as open but is on lock down after four students tested positive for covert, innit? New York University's head of covert prevention team sent out an email saying they're requiring everybody in that dorm to quarantine at least until today.

Hundreds got together for it, and many of whom were not worry mass. But no word of school officials are connecting that party to these four covert cases.

The trial was stopped and it was really by an outside group of people called the data stating monitoring board. All of them felt that it was not related to the vaccine, and therefore they could proceed with the clinical trial of the vaccine that the benefit was obviously significantly greater than any potential chance of harm.

Are Most Words Already Trademarked
"The writer of today's episode. John Perry Tano rescued two cats from a local vet back in nineteen ninety nine and named one Pandora. He says, he was reading a lot of Greek mythology back then. A couple of years later and Dora Brandon jewelry became all the rage. What if John had trademarked that name I, but he and his friend could have been swimming and cat treats. Yet even if he had thought of it according to to New York University, law professors, it probably would have been too late to cash in. It seems that many of the words we use every day are traded marked, which means it's difficult for entrepreneurs to find good names for new companies. Take Pandora for instance, search the US patent and trademark office database, and you'd find a number of companies that already use Pandora in their name avatars and logos. There's a Pandora Hair Collection Pandora radio and yes Pandora's box. The two professors looked at the six point seven, million trademark. Filed at the US patent and trademark office between two, thousand, three and two, thousand sixteen, they then studied a database of the hundred thousand most frequently used words in American English it's called the Corpus of contemporary American English according to the Oxford English dictionary. There are a bit under two hundred thousand words currently and using the English language but according to the website test your vocab dot com, the median adult native English Speaker knows only about twenty to thirty, five, thousand of them. But back to this study, the authors also reviewed a US census list of the hundred, fifty, one, thousand, six, hundred, seventy, two, most frequently occurring surnames in the United. States. What they found will knock your socks off which by the way is also trademarked they wrote in a two thousand eighteen issue of the Harvard law review the data present compelling evidence of substantial word, mark depletion, a particularly with respect to the sets of potential marks that businesses prefer most standard. English words, Short neologisms that are pronounced by speaking and common American surnames. NEOLOGISM is a term for newly coined words or expressions. NEOLOGISM is still available to be trademarked though other common words do have pending registrations including even the word the. Yes. The currently has eleven active trademark resignations. The result of so many trademarks is that new businesses have to strain their noggins and use variations of Noggin are already taken to come up with Mon. occurs that aren't already claimed or resort to what's called a parallel registration. That's when two companies use the exact same name as long as it won't confuse consumers a for example, Delta faucets versus Delta. Airlines. The authors wrote given these conditions. New applicants are increasingly resorting to sub optimal marks. The data indicate that applicants are applying less often for standard English words and common surnames and more often for complex marks as measured by character syllable and word. Count. and. All of this could likely explain why we see more company names like flicker Tumbler and lift olive which leave out letters or incorporate other misspellings of common words.

Facial Recognition Auditing
"Hi I'm. Deborah G and I'm attack fellow at the institute at New York. University will thanks so much for joining us today to kick off. Can you tell me a little bit about your background? I started off studying robotics engineering at the University of Toronto, in Canada, and then I spent a year working on the machine, learning team at clarify, which is a computer vision company in new. York and then wallet clarify sort of noticed that there was in the computer vision community especially with facial recognition in that space in particular there were glaring racial disparities in terms of our data set so data sets being used the facial recognition space in particular, was very visible that there were huge demographic disparities, huge underrepresentation of people of color for example certain demographics cues, and this was in my intuitive At the time. It's since bins empirically demonstrated, but at the time. So I started digging into it, and like exploring it more, and that led me to work with joy blend Weenie at the MIT media lab, and she was working on a project called gender shade, so the gender sheets project was really an investigation into the performance of mainstream deployed machine, learning systems by IBM face plus class and Microsoft and she looked specifically facial recognition systems for the task of gender classification. Is she said what would happen if we evaluated models, these deployed models already out there in the wild already being sold already being used by developers, you know. Know, what would happen if we evaluated these systems on not the demographically benchmarks that we all use in the computer vision community, but what if we created a new benchmark that was not demographically skewed, that was thou- for Gender Representation also skin-tight, so that's what she did. She created this benchmark and evaluated these mainstream computer vision fish recognition API's on demographically balanced benchmark, and what she found out was that there was a huge disparity between the performance on darker skin, females and lighter skinned males, and it was important revelation, especially the facial recognition community to realize that. That a lot of the data that they were using were not demographically representative Ed. There's a lot of racial bias, but also general demographic bias in the models that they were building and deploying so I worked with her that summer, and we did a lot of follow up work to gender shades, analyzing and beginning to try to understand companies didn't response to gender shades how they diversified their data sets in order to do better on the benchmark that we created how certain companies responded or did not respond in response to being targeted for specific audit, and then we. We also kind of looked at particular elements of audit designs that led to impact that led to the company's feeling. Push to change their behavior and at the same time, also I guess about low a research, not at Google I was working with colleagues there to think about documentation. How do we communicate the performance of a machine learning system? And how can we incorporate some of these ideas around auditing into the way that we present and talk about document, the performance of shoe system, and that sort of launched me on this whole dirty, which is where I. I am now like thinking about evaluation of machine learning systems especially under the language of Auditing Assessment Dinky demographic bias, but assessment other ways in other elements of the system, and then also thinking about the communication of the performance of the system. How do we document any of these things in a way that gives us a sense of how the model performs when in the real world and that's really connected to what this paper is about as well. This paper was written with some of the colleagues. It Google. I've been working with on that documentation project also other. Other colleagues from the Computer Vision Phase asking what do we learn and what can we not learn from what we call the gender shade style audit what we learned from these audits on demographic bias, and what is still missing information that we still need to figure out a way to capture document in order to really communicate it understand the full performance of a model or system or AI. System wants US deployed so yeah, that's sort of a brief overview. The whole journey of how we got here and this paper in particular is in response to the fact. Fact that following the generates project and following the subsequent sort of follow up work to under shades. We were realizing that a lot of people were just taking the benchmark from gender shades or recruiting shadow version of that benchmark and using that as a moratorium condition in policy for example or trying to use a similar method to assess the suitability of a model before deploying facial recognition model for demographic disparities and what we found. This paper goes into detail to ethics. There's a right way to do that and there's a wrong way to do that and they're. They're sort of important more nuanced ethical questions involved that need to be consider that need to be talked about when assessing official recognition system for example, but any broad system, and we need to sort of ask ourselves these more careful nuanced questions, the aware of some of these more nuanced ethical tensions before we allow the systems to be deploy,
Is history at a turning point? How can we meet the moment?
"Now is the covid nineteen pandemic continues to grow, so are the parallels being drawn between it and another deadly virus that struck the globe more than a century ago, talking about the Spanish flu. Guys. We've been taking a look at some of the video from nineteen sixty eight. There's a lot of pieces of video that look very similar to what we're seeing today. Implementing the images and emotions coming out of Minneapolis too familiar to what happened right here in Ferguson Missouri in two thousand fourteen George Floyd arrest on a Minneapolis street corner, and his frantic pleas for help have given rise to one of the most turbulent periods in recent American history. The question that I can't stop asking myself. How does this all and You may have heard. At various points this year that we are living history right now. The truth is we're always living history. It's just that some of us can afford to ignore it until it boils over. But when racism and police brutality, and the rage that comes in response to that are laid bare for the world to see. In the middle of a pandemic and martial law is threatened. And nobody gets to look away. Everyone wants to know what happens next. Do, we even have a historical precedent for what's happening in America and around the world right now. What is the larger context of how we arrived at this moment? What are we missing when we watch people discuss it on. Cable News. And what needs to happen now? But does each of US need to do? For this to be a moment that changes the world for the better. That's still possible. I'm Jordan Rawlings, and this is the big story. Andre Demise is a writer and journalist, a contributing editor at Maclean's and a Nathanson fellow in history at York University. He is one of the smartest guests. We ever have on this podcast hi Andre. How's it going toward? It's going about as well as it can more importantly, how are you? doing my best I'm trying to reduce stress as much as I can by hanging out with my children and you know. Occasionally occasionally seeing partner but we're both in school. We've both got tons of homework were both busy plus jobs and everything else so yeah, we're even busier than before. The whole lockdown happened. Figure that and now you're spending this week with white people like me, asking you to please explain the historical context of this well I mean yeah, yeah, I am spending a lot of time explaining shift away, people. I mean I all. I can say I sincerely. Thank you for it. you know I? Just I find you incredibly smart and able to help me. learn some stuff from this. Thanks for taking the time Oh. Stop stuttered. Stop your flattery. I'm about to Leeann as I can plan. Why don't you just start by telling me while you watch everything? That's been happening this past week. What's going through your head? People say things like we've been through worse or we've been here before, and I have to ask the question. When when when of we've been here before we've been here before. Quote Unquote in nine eighteen during the Spanish flu pandemic. We've been here. Nine, hundred nineteen during the May Day riots and during red summer. We've been here before in nineteen sixty eight. But. My question is when when is all this happened at the same time? This is not this is unprecedented. My. Question is what is supposed to look like when when it's all over when the dust settles. Because at some point, there's going to be a change of some kind. Throughout history what happens in the course of a popular uprising that moves to straight up volt. The two methods that the ruling class can use. To try and tamp it down. One is use of force. This is where the Jimmy breaks down. This is where the state has to reveal as violence. And come out against the people with arms, or can try placating the people you can try it for example, the Civil Rights Act. It can try the declaration of the rights. It can try any number of mechanisms. To make that, the populace still has some faith in the state, but what? This looks like I don't know that there's anything to placate like there's I. Don't know that there's any mechanism. The state can try to convince people that social contract is worth upholding. That's the thing that keeps going through my head. Is You know what kind of concession can be made universally across? You know the entire United States that would actually mollify the anger I do know some of the answers to those questions I do know. That and this is something that I've been talking about over the last few years. That capitalism depends on racism to be able to reproduce and propagate itself. It's just plain fact If you beat Donald Harassed, who is a former economist Stanford also happens to be the father of Kamla Harris the former presidential candidate. But apparently they didn't. They didn't really have much of a relationship, but throughout American history. The the use of Racist promises the promising of white rages. what's been described as racial republicanism by scholars like David. What that does is incentivize the white working class against their black peers. It has the white working class essentially the. Generates like we are the only people that deserve to have. Rights. Everybody else is a on a cast below us. And until that cycle is abolished until we move away from a system of capital that accumulates the value of people's Labor and the crews it to a few select people. And then spreads out the rewards among certain other people, and then makes promises to certain people. Until that cycle is broken. I'm afraid we're going to be seeing this for the rest of our lives. I mean you're a fellow in history what? have. We seen that even close to like this in the past that ended with concessions. You have to go back very far. I mean you can. You can look at for example I mean not. Bolivia has been taken over in ashes coup. But if you look at Bolivia for example, the the presidency of evil, Morales and the Movement for socialism in Bolivia, lifted thousands upon thousands upon thousands of people out of out of poverty. It increased literacy rates incorporated indigenous eighty into the broader society. You had the the coca farmers. The the coca does I their their practices and their agricultural methods were incorporated into the broader nation. So that you didn't have eight of. The United States rating forms and burning crops. You headed that this is this is a a plants, but this is also a way of life that is valid, and the fact that it's been twisted into a normal trade has nothing to do with the people that originated the practice, so look at Bolivia for example like that. That was up until very recently and experiments in creating a broader. Social Democracy that was more inclusive and helped marginalized people, so

"As you know, I was on Hannity Friday. Many of you like that appearance. I was discussing at some length. Some of the history of past administrations, particularly democrat administrations and the abuse of power and how the media basically gave them a pass. In fact, the media worked with them in many instances Justice, the modern American media has been working with the perpetrators of the collusion hoax. Even though they know that FBI leaks of investigative matters or felonies media been working with them they've been working with Adam Schiff. In other words, they're working with the government against this. Outsider Trump and his administration now pretty much. I don't get to listen to all of it. But pretty much what you're hearing on TV and radio is a fairly. And I don't say this to be disrespectful, but he relatively surface explanation of why this is the case. And ranting and raving about the fact that it is the case. So even though my publisher gets angry when I do this and the publisher does get angry when I do this. We're going to dig into this a little bit. You're not going to know more than anybody else. These things don't just happen, folks. It's not that all of a sudden there's liberals in the media. There's a whole training mechanism. That's taking place a whole school of thought that's taking place. They've been moving in this direction the media anyway, but there's a really strong push. And I want to inform you about it. I want to expose you to this. Then. Yes, this is all in the upcoming book. But I'm just giving you a little flavor here and there so you get a feel for how impactful I believe this is going to be. Most of you don't know who New York University. Professor Jay Rosen. Why would you? Why would you? But you do know that New York University is a hardcore left wing university. While there's a professor there is name is Jay Rosen, and he's a leading voice in the idea of so-called ready for this because the back benches will chew it up. But just this is between us. Public or civic journalism. It's called public or civic journalists that is the purpose driven community based social activism journalism movement that has been spreading throughout America's new newsrooms for the past several decades. And this fellow rose in this professor is a harsh critic of the president. And he wrote in the Washington Post not long ago. Imagine a candidate who wants to increase public confusion about where he stands on things. So that voters give up on trying to stay informed and instead vote with raw emotion. Under those conditions does asking where do you stand sir serve the goals of journalism or does it enlist the interviewer in the candidates chaotic plan? I know what you're thinking journalists. What do you want us to do? Stop covering a major party candidate for president. That would be responsible. Well, true. But this reaction short circuits intelligent debate beneath every common practice. He writes an election coverage. There are premises about. How candidates will behave? I want you to ask do these still apply. I mean, Trump is behaving like a normal candidate is he he's acting like an unbound. One. In response, he writes, journalists have to become less predictable themselves. They have to come up with novel responses, they have to do things they've never done. They may even have to shock us. This is Rosa who's one of the leading lights of this movement. These so-called public or civic journalism, meta social activism journalism movement, which has taken hold at CNN and MSNBC in the New York Times and the Washington Post. This is the first you've heard this because I didn't know anything about it until about seven eight nine ten months ago when I was doing my research Rosen ads in his Washington Post op, Ed. They need to collaborate across new brands in ways, they have never known other words media, we'll have to get together. They the journalists may have to call Trump out with a forcefulness unseen before the may after the breakdown of the in interviews and endure excruciating awkwardness. Jim Acosta, obviously is a social activist journalist hardest of all that will have to explain to the public that Trump is a special case and the normal rules. Do not apply. I want to get on with this guy this guy rose them because it's important because Jay Rosen university of New York University professors having enormous influence now one of the reasons why. I and my publisher are hesitant to do something like this because you will hear talk show hosts down the road. And listen, I'm not I just want you to know how this works by get conflicted. We're going to pick up on this wait a couple of weeks and then spirit as if it's their own. And a lot of people who listen to this show may listen to other shows, and may not know who's saying what I'm telling you that this is very very important. Very very important to understand the core. What's taking place here? Professor Jay Rosen, NYU and other like-minded social activists public and civic journalism. That's what they call social activism journalism reject the traditional standards and notions of the pre of a free press for instead a radical approach to reporting where the media become an essential instrument for what for the progressive movement. For the progressive movement. They call this. The new journalism just say, you know. The new journalism. Grew up thinking of itself as liberal and objective at the same time. It was objective in so far as it separated facts from values reporting, the facts and relegating the values to the editorial page, but to be objective or scientific or scientific and the way was it self a liberal value. But here's more Rosen. Lacking confidence in the intelligence and wisdom is fellow citizens Rosen insists on indoctrination and manipulation by media leaks. Here's what he writes. Quote, if the public is assumed to be out there, more or less intact. Then the job of the press is easy to stay to inform people about what goes on in their name, and in their midst, but suppose, the public leads a more broken existence at times it may be alert and engaged but just as often it's struggles against our pressures excuse me other pressures including itself. That can win out in the end in attention. To public matters is perhaps the simplest of these atomization of society, one of the more intricate money speaks louder than the public problems overwhelming fatigue sets in attention falters. Cynicisms wells, a public that leads. This more fragile kind of existence. Suggests a different task for the press not just to inform a public that may or may not emerge but to improve the chances that it will emerge. Well, what will emerge folks the public for what? For the progressive cause of social activists. And he even cites John Dewey who we've talked about many times before an early progressive. John doing an early hero mine he says had suggested something like this in his book in one thousand nine hundred twenty seven the public and its problems in that book is cited. Not only in this book. But this book the book of Jewish of do is also cited in rediscovering Americanism. So rosen. Seems to be referencing. Dewey's view of news has providing meaning the social consequences of the information. Some of you getting bored. I'm almost done. But I want you to know what's going on out there. I mean, I can beat the drums to, but let's just really focusing on this do we wrote quote, new signifies something which has just happened. And which is new just because it deviates from the old and regular, but its meaning depends upon relations to what it imports to what its social consequences are. So you see reporting events without a social context folks and the relationship to the past as part of a continuum isolates them from their connections. He says even if social sciences has a specialized apparatus of inquiry. We're more advanced than they are. They would be comparatively impotent in the office of directing opinion on matters of concern to the public as long as they are remote from apple occasion. What he's trying to say. Here is writing. Media press reporters. Don't chess report, the news all the news means is something new and different than the status quo. Or something quite remarkable that took place or even on remarkable for that matter. You must give it meaning. Which meaning should we give it you must give it the meaning of progressive, social activism folks, this is part of the progressive movement. It's been going on for a long time. It's being pushed very very strongly by individuals who have enormous influence on modern so-called journalists and journalism over the last several decades. That's why you're seeing it more and more radicalized. Now, there's a ton more to say about this. I'll save it for another day. But there is a reason. A reason why you have a CNN the way you have a CNN. There is a reason you have an MSNBC the way you have an MSNBC. There's a reason the New York Times news pages read like the New York Times editorial pages and same with the Washington Post. There's a reason like they all sound pretty much the same. Is they all embrace. Community slash public slash social activism journalism of the left. And they had these professors these intellectuals who are pressing the case far back is doing. And as recent as Rosa. And there's a lot more of this going on in our colleges and universities, which I explain in the book, I won't explain now. So when you say Jesus, This news coverage is really out there. It is really out there. It's idiological. It's being taught it's being trained. It's being pushed it's being indoctrinated. Our understanding of news is not their understanding of news. Our understanding a news traditional their understanding, a news perverse. It's bastardized. You cannot have pure news. You cannot have objective news. You cannot have truthful news. Now, they I mean that that's their claim and yet many of them. Don't claim it publicly some do. This is a divide among them. Some will say we're objective news sources some will say no you can't be objective. News source. You've got at least explain these things when Chuck Todd announces a meet the depressed now, he's not a particularly bright guy. He didn't finish his political science degree. You know, he's he's he's he's he's a lightweight. Let's just be honest offense. But he is most of the Mark. When Chuck Todd announced several months ago on his show, and we talked about it at length. That there is man made climate change and anyone who disagrees is a denier, whether you're physicist, whether you're meteorologist, whatever your background, you are a denier, and we will not tolerate and he's also the chief political reporter for NBC as well.

"So I think everybody has a sense that as a general rule chemicals are bad for you. You don't want a lot of chemicals in your body pesticides. For example, are things you want to keep out of your body. Perhaps you've heard that the receipts you get from gas stations or grocery stores are coated with a chemical called BPA. And if you touch it that can get in your body, and that's not good. And you've no doubt heard that you're not supposed to heat food in the microwave in a plastic container because the chemicals in the plastic can Leach into the food and get into your body. So yes, we all have a sense that chemicals are not good. But what most of us know about this is pretty vague and incomplete, and as it turns out, we need to know a lot more because the science is in and a lot of the news is not good news here to explain it is Dr Leonardo tra- Sunday.

First of all, I think it's really important when we're talking about a lot of conversation about Russian interference in the election in two thousand sixteen, we're there a couple of things that we're talking about when we mentioned that one is attacks on the election infrastructure, but there's also. Kind of political purchase, a political ads, social media, propaganda and attack on campaigns and their emails. Those are those are two separate things. I, if we're focusing on the election infrastructure itself, we saw them targeting, voter, registration databases. Again, not entirely clear what they were trying to do there. And of course, voter-registration databases are the roles that had the names of people and says whether or not they're eligible to vote where they live, where they can vote, and there were phishing attacks against. Election officials. We know that it looks like at least one election systems vendor, which manufacturers e poll books was attacked, but I think. We don't. We don't know exactly what was going on. Unclear, just that there was certainly a lot of looking around on their part. What was that is that the vendor company that was putting PC anywhere on the on the machines maintenance, but the software wasn't taken off? Is that what you're talking about and that case? Is it something different? Know what I'm talking about is there is a company the our systems, my actually I think they may still. They may still. Not have confirmed whether or not there. There certainly was an attempt to hack them. And again, they manufacture e books and and deal with registration databases. Electronic books are what you kind of what are used. They're often. Tablets or or or or computers that are used to check people in and. As I said, last, I checked, I think they have they. They may deny that they were actually successfully breached, but at least in one of the Muller indictments, there was an indication that there was some, then it sounded like them that was actually breached Chow store at the. We were talking about these kind of acts, but how else could a voting machine be compromised? Well. Well, that's actually quite a controversial question you. You mentioned. Well, so let's start off by making distinctions and malaria really helped making the distinctions among the Russians what they were doing in various ways perhaps to influence the elections ranging from affecting the campaigns to maybe affecting the infrastructures. I think if we're asking about what can be done to hack into, say machines and systems. In the first distinction we would make is between, you know, the voter registration systems, which where it was just talking a bit about, you alluded to the twenty one states. They got attacked, those are registration systems, and then there the machines themselves, which can either be electron, including machines that are used in several states or potentially the scanners that are used his scan. Skin paper ballots. And if we're thinking about the voting machines themselves, either they like traffic ones or the scanners. That's actually the answer that question is actually quite quite controversial..

"Yeah. When something terrible happens something truly terrible mass shooting or a terrorist attack. There is a man who's phone eventually will ring. My name is Kenneth Feinberg. I'm a lawyer here in Washington. DC fiber grew up near Boston in Brockton, Massachusetts, Brockton high school graduate university of Massachusetts, graduate New York University school of law. And then I was asked by the chief judge of New York state to Clark him. This was in nineteen seventy as fine. Berg's career progressed. He got to know many of the chief judge's other former clerks. One of whom was the very distinguished eminent federal district. Judge Jack b Weinstein in Brooklyn one day in one thousand nine hundred. Four Feinberg got a call from judge Weinstein by this time Feinberg had put in time as federal. Execute her and as chief of staff or Senator Ted Kennedy. Now he was in private practice. What did judge Weinstein Weinstein had assigned to him the Agent, Orange litigation, brought by Vietnam veterans against the chemical industry, Dow Monsanto. Alleging certain physical injuries and deaths attributable to inhaling or swimming in the urbicide Agent Orange while serving in Vietnam for those who don't recall or no Agent Orange was an exfoliating meant to burn the shrubs off to give American soldiers in advantage yet. That's tried so so the Viet Cong couldn't hide an ambush American soldiers while the Vietnam veterans came home with cleric, knee with soft tissue sarcomas with other cancers and judge Weinstein head that case, very complicated, very complex medical case. And on the eve of trial, he asked me, would I be willing to come to Brooklyn to mediate a settlement of that case, and then design and administer a compensation program for eligible Vietnam veterans. The judge Weinstein knew that you very much at mired him. Was that in any way, putting his thumb on the scale in that case? Yes, he put his thumb on the scale to get it settled. I don't think he put his thumb on the scale as to what the amount should be or whether the the chemical industry had a better case than the Vietnam veterans. He put his thumb on the scale only in the sense that let's try and resolve this case rather than litigated the case. And then appeals and five or six more years of uncertainty. He saw the necessity of trying to bring litigation to closure, and he also saw that legally the veterans have tough case they may not win. Were you aware of any previous programs or any previous settlements that were even close to similar to that in terms of scope and really magnitude? No, unprecedented writing on a blank slate. So I accepted the assignment at the request, of course, of the. Court. And in eight weeks, we settled that massive complex litigation once I did that. Everybody started calling me. The Agent Orange settlement didn't please? Everyone factors barely ever a settlement like this leaves everyone happy because underlying each case is a tragedy. That dollars cannot repair a tragedy, requiring a thankless and perhaps impossible calculus. But that's when Feinberg phone rings. It might be a governor Hickenlooper in Colorado after the Aurora movie shootings, it might be a mayor Menino in Boston. After the Boston marathon bombings, it might be the president of the junior university. There was one tragedy that differed from the rest on several dimensions. The nine eleven fund was fascinating because congress authorized unlimited funds. Whatever Feinberg thinks is appropriate, fine with us. We don't have value these lives today, unforgiving radio. How.
