Blessings and Curses of Intuition
"We're talking about intuition today but we're not just going to talk about it as a positive thing as with most things as with most powers if you wanna call it that Most skills it comes with the downside intuition does have a downside and you can probably guess. Some of that downside. If you've been listening to this show for very long at all You can. You can probably imagine that it has something to do with the way our brains work. So we're going to talk about to kind of curses to blessings of intuition. If you want to call it something different feel free. These are two good things and too bad things. So let's talk about the two curses. I the first curse is that intuition is very good but it's not perfect to we can't rely on it completely. We've experienced this especially as younger. Engineers probably younger in their careers. I mean people who have less intuition working with people who do have good intuition but they rely on it as if it is infallible. This is the problem if you're good Ninety nine percent of the time then. You can't rely on that All the way you can't just use intuition to make decisions in tuition is very good and giving you a direction. Which is the kind of piece of advice to take away from this particular curse very good at giving you a direction to go right. It's it's good. It's a pointer but sometimes our intuition is totally off right. Let's back up for a minute and talk about went. Intuition is to begin with intuition is essentially The well worn path in our brain. It's a well worn path because we've given our brains a consistent kind of pattern consistent kind of stimulus in the brain is recognizing that pattern faster and faster because That pathway is well. Warn will save some of the neuroscience for people who are more qualified to talk about it but this idea is fairly simple. Our brains recognized patterns very well. That's a very important thing that we can do is humans and when we see patterns that we've seen a lot of times before our brains are very good at taking a bunch of shortcuts right. Were no longer having to evaluate those things really thoroughly to understand them. We have very good models for those things now. We have a lot of intuition just naturally as human beings for example. Anything that you do. On essentially on autopilot. That is because you built intuition for how to do that. Thing for for perfect example of this Those of us who are able we walk. We walk using what we would. We wouldn't really call it intuition. Probably but that's the same concept right. We have Some keen sense of the patterns of walking. We can look at the ground and understand what our feet are going to feel like if we were to walk on that ground well in advance once again our pattern. Recognition is An intentional effort by our brains to try to predict some future. And so when you start recognizing a pattern. The intuition part is understanding. What plays out when that pattern Appears when we have that stimulus so the response that our brains provide when we have a well-worn path With some pattern based stimulus. That is intuition. So intuition takes time to develop. It takes experience to develop. But this i curse that we're talking about here which is that sometimes. Our intuition is wrong is a byproduct of randomness in the universe. Right we can recognize patterns. That are actually not what we think they are. We can see things happening. That are not actually happening. Our brains being very good at recognizing patterns are not very good At recognizing when something is random. Were not very good at recognizing when there's a hole in the plot to our story because we want to make things make sense. When things make sense we tend to succeed and so we try to make things make sense even when they don't so our intuition is is kind of biased towards kicking in more often than it should. Sometimes we use that intuition in situations where we should take a step back and say no. I don't have a perfect picture of how this plays out. Okay so that's number one. We're actually going to switch back and forth between curse and blessing as we are not all negative and then all positive. The first blessing of intuition. And you we're not going to go with the obvious ones right. The the obvious blessing of intuition is that you can develop skills and response times that are better than the average you can develop a An easy way of responding to certain situations intuition is good at giving you a kind of faster than normal reflexes and that gives you the ability to build a higher level of skill in a given area. Okay so that's the obvious one. We're not gonna talk about that anymore. The blessing that i want to talk about is a better time travelling device than most people do about this particular subject. Right time travelling. Something we always do. We're trying to understand what's going to happen in three days three weeks three months three years if we make particular decision if we see this pattern and we're trying to time travel based on the patterns that we see time travelling just inner minds imagining what the future will be like right In in this particular case we're not talking about traveling back in time. We're talking about traveling forward. Although you could make the exact same argument that you're very good at travelling back and identifying very similar instances because you have good intuition for how this pattern matches those right but because intuition is largely based on pattern recognition you can usually recognize it bad path before other people. Can you can time travel much faster. You can see much faster into that future in. You can have a better guest that hey you know. What if we go down that pathway. That i'm recognizing this pattern of I've done this thousand times in nine hundred ninety five of those times. Things went poorly so i think we probably shouldn't do that right. So you have a better understanding a better grasp but better way of jumping forward into the future than other people might and for what it's worth. It's not just about avoiding bad things right. you can also recognize a good path. A good signal Another really good example of this is recognizing talent in other people if you are so you are a coach and you've developed a an intuition for the kinds of athletes that Really make for good players in a particular position is a very specific thing that you've developed in in tuition for well. Now you can recognize some of the patterns of behavior that would signify. Somebody might be a qualified for that position again again. We can see the kind of interplay between that. I curse which is that. Intuition is very good but not perfect and that first blessing which you have a better time. Travelling device than most people do right It's not a perfect time travelling device. You're not predicting the future With twenty you have a a different unique perspective because of your intuition. But you don't have the perfect perspective. Because of intuition in other words you shouldn't use your intuition all right. This is a very important point to take away in the first half of this episode. You shouldn't be using your intuition as a set of credentials
The Bakery AI Being Used For Cancer Research
"There's a bakery chain in japan that offers dozens of different kinds of pastries danishes. Donuts croissants sandwiches you go down a cafeteria style line. Pick what you want. Put it on a tray and when you get to the register to pain you put your tray on top of a backlit rectangle screen shows an injury of your train with bright green lines around each item it recognizes each item from among the dozens of pastries on offer at the bakery and then correctly charges. You how does it do that. You'd imagine some kind of relatively recent developments in deep learning neural networks. But in fact it's a more grown technology that got its start. In two thousand seven led by a man named hisashi kombi the new yorker recently profiled combine work with the bakery and how the technology he developed is now being deployed in many other sectors including cancer research. So let's start with the bread problem. Japanese consumers like lots of options and bread is no exception market. Research in japan showed that a bakery that offered a hundred different options sold twice as much as a bakery that offered only thirty and that unwrapped baked goods sold better because people perceived them as fresh but without the wrapping. You don't have labels or barcodes on the pastries so then you've got employees who have to memorize hundred different pastries and this slowdown lines. Because workers would often mix things up or have to take time remembering which peachtree was which not to mention. They handled each unwrapped pastry individually. So it wasn't exactly the most sanitary so this chain wanted to automate the process somehow and they turned to comedies company. Brain to help them out. Rain had already been working for twenty years on finding ways for computers to see something that was long one of the biggest challenges of artificial intelligence. The new yorker explains it really. Well quote as i write. This can look up at my shelves. They contain books and skin of yarn and a tangled cable. All inside a cabinet whose glass enclosure is reflecting leaves in the trees outside my window. I can't help. But parse the scene about a third of the neurons and my cerebral cortex are implicated in processing visual information but to a computer. It's a mess of color and brightness in shadow. A computer has never untangled. A cable doesn't get that glasses. Reflective doesn't know that trees sway in the wind. Ai researchers used to think that without some kind of model of how the world works in that was in it. A computer might never be able to distinguish the parts of complex scenes. The field of computer vision was zoo of algorithms that may do in the meantime and quotes over the last decade this has changed as deep learning and neural networks have been applied and tweaked in real world scenarios. Siri google translate and alpha. Go all rely on deep learning with layers of simulated neurons and their honed by things like tagging people in photos on social media and picking out street lights in those prove. You're not a robot tests on website forms but especially without that kind of passively crowd sourced assistance quoting again. The drawback of deep learning is that it requires large amounts of specialized data the deep learning system for recognizing faces might have to be trained on tens of thousands of portraits. And it won't recognize address unless it's also been shown. Thousands of dresses deep learning researchers therefore have learned to collect labeled data on an industrial scale and quotes and for brain the bakery chain not only with the frequency with which the bakery chain changed their offerings. Make such data required for learning. The new pastries be untenable. They were also several years too early to even consider using deep learning so they built their own system using lots and lots of algorithms by two thousand ten. They built a system with ninety nine percent. Accuracy across fifty types of bread tackling problems like different pastries that look remarkably similar and the same pastries that look different when one is baked. More or one got squished. As developing the back light the pastries have to be placed on to keep the lighting consistent even though they did have to also build a mathematical model to account for inconsistencies in color when it comes to bake times rather than showing assistant thousands of photos of each pastry as one would with a deep learning system they manually tweaked and honed the algorithms on each doughnut and danish until they got it right but their system learns to win. The system isn't sure instead of those green lines around each item. It shows yellow or red lines and prompts the user to select from some suggestions or manually input the product quoting again show bakery scan a pastry never seen on earth and it'll recognize the next one of its kind about forty percent of the time according to brain after just five examples it is ninety percent accurate and after twenty. It's nearly perfect. Moreover whereas deep learning systems are relatively inscrutable. You can't look at a neural network and say exactly why a decision emerged from it bakery scans judgments based as they are on hand engineered system or more particularly if the system. Miss identifies something. You can figure out why these days. It's unusual to develop in the way that brain developed bakery scan. The approach requires a mastery of fine details. It is in spirit artisanal. It takes years during which parameters must be tuned. Special cases accounted for deep learning relieves. You from having to understand how the seasons affect shadows in a donut hole you merely plug enough examples and the network figures it out and with deep learning. The same brain can accomplish different tasks when you feel different. Data deep mind. The alphabet subsidiary used data sets to train a single neural network to beat humans at chess shoghi and go systems that depend on domain specific knowledge as bakery scandal need not just new data but new filters new features in new algorithms before they can be used elsewhere and quotes nonetheless. The technology behind bakery scan now housed under the umbrella. Name of ai scan has gone on to be used in applications as far flung as distinguishing pills in hospitals to counting the number of people in eighteenth century woodblock prints and even spotting incorrectly wired bolts in jet engine parts but the most impressive application came in two thousand seventeen when quoting again. Dr louis pasteur's center for medical research in kyoto saw a television segment about bakery scan. He realized that cancer cells under a microscope looked kind of like bread and quotes. I love that observation but he was right. Ai scan has now been working for a few years on fine tuning their cancer cell detector. Saito a scan now. Being tested at two hospitals is able to look at an entire microscope slide and identify potentially cancerous cells with ninety nine percent accuracy based on features like the color tone size and texture of the nucleus and all round -ness of the cell as they continue to grow and build on their original system. Brain has had to bring in deep learning once recently when covid nineteen pushed bakery owners to start wrapping their pastries and individual packaging. Brain used a deep learning to help their bakery scan system still be able to identify the pastries behind the reflective plastic
Discussing The Position Statement from The National Lymphedema Network on COVID-19 Vaccine Sites
"How did you guys come about finding your position. Who were the experts. That kinda helped guide this statement. Well you know. I need for is what we feel very strongly. Is i think you to advocate for those patients who really don't have advocates for them right in the sense that like you know this. Is this the example. That i gave in our first weapon or of the month And basically imagine that we have a million people who had no dissection in both aren't in both armpits on the right and the left and so now you know they are fortunate enough to be receiving the is saination. And let's just say. There is a ninety nine percent chance that you know. The patients will not develop dima so there's one percent left right but that one percent of a million is ten thousand people. So it's like who's going to advocate for that ten tenth out for those ten thousand people and you know and and the thing is it's just a matter of conservative course of action prudent care so there is not much more of a difference in terms of an injection in arm or the lake. So i think that one of the concerns in the healthcare community is that it's just not team to to offer an injection in the arm in the leg by in terms of you know skill a it doesn't take any more Skill really to put the injection just about two feet lower than you know we are normally given in the arm and so basically our position is it just came about from you know just knowing that there are two main things from the injection rate. We know for sure that well publicized side effect is increased squally and live not enlargement right and so we know that with increased swelling and you know known enlargement. There is a higher risk for developing email. Because you're creating such a higher lymphatic burden and so that's one thing. The second thing we know about is that there are is a big concern. In terms of mimic game You know positive mammographies and breast cancer. Scans so so really. We just want to make sure that we argued for beaches where they won't develop a higher olympic risk and where they won't necessarily have to go through the concern of thinking that potentially they have a positive can if it just so happens that their skin is within this timeframe soon after their code injections and so it's just prudent course of action really that is guiding us and we just wanna make sure that we you know do what is in the best interest of our patients
Covid vaccine: PM to have AstraZeneca jab as he urges public to do the same
"When johnson talks about the uk's world-beating response to covid nineteen vaccine pogrom passes muster. It's been an unqualified success or one of the reasons. His conservative party are so far ahead in the polls over twenty five million brits have received their job so fall but the government unexpectedly announced show fall in the number of vaccines delivered in april juice. Supply issues and the debate has a geopolitical angle. To given the you struggling with its own vaccine rollout slovan the line. The european commission president on the block might even consider export controls. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis of the century. And i'm not ruling out any anything for now because we have to make sure that europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible so sarah. Let's begin with the overall state of the uk's vaccine pogrom based on what was set out in december. It's pretty much all going to plan fairly high levels of takeover ninety four percent i believe and the government is insisting that all over fifty will have had their first job by the middle of april. So what's the problem. Well a week ago we would have said. This was indeed the most Astonishingly amyloid success and a sign of vessel. Buoyant moved around it. Was that the with some very clear briefing to a couple of the saturday newspapers suggesting that we were actually going to move to the over forty's much sooner than expected so it was a bit of a jolt to find out on wednesday that in fact. Nhs people involved in the program had been told that they must hold booking any new appointments throughout april because the been a sudden very significant reduction in the supplies available so that really has put the first serious dent in the narrative which right from december the eight. I think it was the day. That william shakespeare became one of the first two vaccine as now suddenly. The government is in the unaccustomed position of having to explain what's happening and explain why some of the public expectations that they'd raised so hard may not be met to be fair to the government. They still absolutely insisting they're on track with the two big dates that they've set for this program that all over fifty should be vaccinated by the middle of april. And all adult britons. Who wants a job will have had it at the end of july. But there's no question that it's been a difficult political management problem for them this week and very much not the position that they'd hoped to be in the club. Let's have a look at why this might be happening and seven. I spent a lot of this week speaking to people. Whitehall trying to figure out exactly what was going on behind the scenes with matt. Hancock gave us a of clarity in the house of commons and the government is pinning own production issues. The first one is this batch of one point seven million jobs that we sent back for testing and the second thing is the supply from the soham institute of india which again the governor's put down to supply issues but others are saying that actions being blocked by modi's government from shipping out to the uk. Exactly it is pretty opaque what's happening. There are two elements. Here that can hold up. Supplies one is the genuinely technical difficulties in producing a complex biological process. I mean it's not straightforward zanu vaccine and a lot of the manufacturing sites haven't made this sort of marin a vaccine before it scale factor. You could say none of them have because this is the first one. That's the fiso won. The astra zeneca at novartis vaccine is also level to a complicated process. So there are technical supply issues and then there at the political ones. You alluded to and i don't know whether the serum institute of india supply has been blocked for political reasons because india was having rather a good downturn in covert cases. But that's turning up again. Unfortunately and there are feelings. That indian government wanted to have it at home. This is so. I think if we look at the context of this a lot of it is actually not that much of a serious problem that we were crunching the numbers this week and april is a significant moment in the vaccine program for the uk. Because yes they were vaccinated all over fifty which according to people like christie chief medical officer of england which uses ninety nine percents of deaths on messages the pressure on the nhc s. But eneko you have to install the second jobs. Really the po- gum began to scale up towards the end of january and eleven week window. The nhl is set between the first and second doses. That really kicks in april and but hancock said this week that really still going to be delivering about fourteen million jobs throughout april which is low though. It's been in march but it's still a pretty high number so it's probably good to keep it in context with feels really what's gone wrong. Here is expectations that the rogue briefing about forty s really feels like delivers come off the bush tourism bush. Johnson's tried to restrain for much of twenty twenty. One yes and i think some. Nhs officials were less than delighted about that huge raising expectations last weekend. In a way. I think this was always going to be a difficult point for the program. It was absolutely predictable that at the point at which second doses to scale up there was going to be a deep in first doses. So it's perhaps unfortunate that there wasn't more subtle public preparation. You're absolutely right international standards even in april. We're still going to be doing more. Vaccinations than many of our counterparts. So it's particularly unfortunate wasn't better preparation. Because i think in the minds of a lot of britain's the will now be a sense of this program isn't doing well it's stumbled. It didn't have to be this way that it could have been very differently presented. And after all as i said the government is still on track to meet those two deadlines that it says now clive. We need to put this in the context of europe as well and we heard from s. the von d'alene at the top. That and you still really struggling with its vaccine vo loud but the most baffling things. She's seen this week. Is the story about the astra zeneca job and how effective or side effects. That may have in this concern. Over blood clots we heard from the ama from the nhra in the uk from the world health organization. All saying there are no concerns about blood. Clots and ashes annika vaccine yet at didn't stop lawson countries from halting giving out the doses. It's a very complicated picture on side effects. At least the spotlight turned away from efficacy. Before countries in continental europe were worrying that the astrazeneca vaccine wouldn't work well enough to older people. I think the efficacy questions have more or less be answered now. The spotlight is on whether they're adverse side effects and a few of those have been discovered there. These two different sorts of blood disorders do with abnormal clotting thrombosis that have been detected in people who just been vaccinated in norway in germany elsewhere on continental europe. The numbers are tiny. I would say fewer than twenty around the continent. Investigation is still continuing. There's no proven link with the vaccine. But a lot of vaccine knowledge ists the might be a link. But that is no reason to stop the vaccination program when it's saving tens of thousands of lives probably and people have said that just by halting for a few days the astrazeneca vaccination and continental europe. This week until the european medicines agency said it was okay that would have cost lives. It loves cost lives directly because people weren't getting vaccinated and it also probably unfortunately of cost lives indirectly because all the publicity about ad side effects will just undermined confidence in the vaccine
Spurs Crash Out of Europe
"Old gentlemen. We'll be starting to show a team. I was against exactly what we will start as dina's grab going through three two on aggregate to josie marino's side dawn halfway through this matchy text me going. No way they lose this in reference. The spurs absolute didn't didn't see losing it. But i would. Horrendous performance was i mean it was ridiculous it was saw by the players. Didn't even look interested. Josie after the game. He was flabbergasted. Must think he's looking at this scorning and this is not a team full of men. This the t michael manage because every now and again this team and some of these individuals go missing. How this happens tv i would. I would have to say it comes down. A lot of it comes down to two konica to be honest with you. You know. I've been in a situation away from home against a aid. The get a goal. There's a huge get behind them and you get swallowed up in the atmosphere that to me is a legitimate excuse. But they don't have excuse me. I want a sola again. This was basically mon- against mon- hoover's the the better character the strength of character to kick on is gonna win this game and a premier league sade couldn't face a team that quite frankly shocked his all by one game. Was it just complacency. Is it out simple. Shang obviously winning. The i like to know just think iraq beginning to get the job done but also scored. They're really like there was only getting we. One would vons thought the first half it was quite clearly two teams. Who who would determine not to concede the for school. And that's what you still forty-five minutes had sixty something percent. Possession couldn't concreted any meaningful opportunities and then in the second half the moselle grab just. They made the transition better. Daddy started to play on the front foot. They went looking for goals. There had to an indian win spurs needed to kind of play on the front foot. There's no they could do. And despite the changes jersey marino bringing hurricane an dome valley it was just a team that seemed more comfortable defending than attacking despite all the attacking players they had in their lineup. Maybe we're on the selling this slightly robert but this is a huge deal isn't it. It's a massive deal because he's not the first time spurs the plate in this manner this season. There's been four or five occasions where they've lacked energy. They've let the right attitude. The started game slowly and then not be not to get back into it and you have to criticize the place but you have to criticize. The manager didn't look as though they were prepared to battle today. They didn't look sent out on the pitch ready to fight for the place in the next round until the going to the opposition and again comes down to the manager as well as the players marino off. The tv said he warned the place. He warned them about complacency going of the second leg. And is it just a case that i didn't listen or he didn't set them up properly would suggest that the probably just too many of them are too comfortable. And just think that when these step on the field is going to happen. I mean looking at say that he here the majority in fact ninety nine percent say played in the champions league final two years ago. No the register get knocked over the league by by menno So i i. The was come for for big changes as far as the plan. Personnel are consumed and asked to be quickly. Otherwise josie is in trouble. Because he's supposed to be this great mon- monitor that we've been talking about for for the decade will clearly. He can't get this team going. And so you'll have the shit limo because if you don't and you can't motivate them. The normal thing that will happen is you'll isn't dead man. Walking don a theme think it seems like donna gospel great question on bt sports afterwards the question to you and you get the feeling. Do you and your players. Do you think you're going to change course in terms of you'll have to get rid of some of your players. Or is he gonna get the sock josie any waffle little bit. It didn't really want to throw him under the bus. Check get live on tv. But it would be. I think would be better off served of josie. Just turn around. And set it bluntly this team. I call manage in terms of getting sucked but the individuals. He called manage because they haven't got the backbone the and got the character you know when you go away from home. You've gotta you gotta show character. You gotta show blood sweat. And tears are your willing to die for tottenham shirt go through in europe and zagreb would all of that tenfold brilliant. You've seen the scenes after the game. They were they left. Everything on the pitch. And joey must be looking not dressing room. You must be looking at individuals and brilliant when you stick them all down on paper you put the squad down on paper and using our any manager in the world we want to manage this squad. I'm not sure you dig a little bit deeper. How motivated some of these players
Google follows Apple in cutting Play Store fees for developers
"Seen that ran the piece tuesday saying that. Google is following apple's lead and lowering the commission charges most developers selling to the google play store while the changes similar to apple's at something google's scott might be more generous according to seeing that google will only take a fifteen percent commission on sales up to one million dollars the fee will jump to the standard thirty percent wants developers make more than the one million dollars in sales for a year. According to the report sounds the same as apples offer but it isn't a piece from ars. Technica ran the matt. Saying apple applies. It's lower fifteen percent rate to a developer. Developer exceed one million dollars in revenue in a given year at which point the thirty percent number is applied to all of that developers. Earn inc's google still charges fifteen percent on that first million even if the developer makes five million so in google's model a developer who earns one point two million dollars on a nap pays fifteen percent on one million then thirty percent on two hundred thousand and novels a developer making eight hundred thousand four hundred over fifteen percent on that amount but if they make one point two million they pay thirty percent on all one point two million. Not just two hundred thousand. It's tough to know how many developers straddle that million dollar fence. There's also a bird in the hand thing going on right now. While apple's lower commission went live at the first of the year seen that says google's won't drop until the first of july quoted in the scene that piece google. vp of product management. Samir soman said with this change ninety nine percent of developers globally that sell digital goods and services with play. We'll see a fifty percent reduction in fees. I'm no mathematician but does that indicate that ninety nine percent of developers selling in the google play store make less than a million dollars a year. I mean i knew the split between the cells and the cells knots was big but golly as for what such large as costs apple and google saying the cost is manageable would be understating it a piece from. Cnbc has numbers from the app. Tracking firm center tower. According to those apple and google or giving up less than five percent of their revenue from apps with the commission changes will let cnbc and sensor tower. Do them at this. If the fifteen percent fee schedule on revenue up to one million dollars and been in place on google play in twenty twenty google would have missed out on five hundred. Eighty seven million dollars or about five percent of sensor towers estimate of eleven point. Six billion dollars in google pay fees for the year. If apple's program had been in place for twenty twenty center tower estimates that it would have missed out on five hundred and ninety five million or about two point seven percent of its estimated twenty one point seven billion dollars an app store fees in twenty twenty. I gotta say that makes apple structure look worse. Actually and i didn't have to say that. And yet i did unhappy with the changes. A guy who won't be greatly affected by these changes. Google shuffling of commissions was likely spurred by apple's commissions which the start of the year that was likely spurred by bad press generated by the coalition for up fairness which was blinked into existence by epic game. Ceo tim sweeney putting it to sink play. Cnbc's says epic games is currently suing apple and google seeking the make changes to their app stores to allow for third party payment processors as well as other changes that is like the reader's digest version of the cliffs notes of what's going on but works summon forth from the fort. Sweeney took to twitter on tuesday to say why. The changes are inadequate in his estimation. quoting sweeney. Tweet it's a self serving gamut. The far majority of developers will get this new fifteen percent rate and thus be less inclined to fight but the far majority of revenue is naps. What the thirty percent rate so. Google and apple can continue to inflate prices and flees consumers with their app taxes.
AirPop launches first smart air wearable, Active + with Halo Sensor
"We've talked about how technology can help our health in many of our latest episodes today we will talk about the introduction of the chinese brand air pop health. The world's first smart air wearable called active plus smart mask with halo sensor to active plus smart mask with halo sensor is built to help wears get a deeper understanding of the respiratory health the halo sensor bridges the gap between outside air and internal respiration. This face mask combined. Superior air filtration blacking more than ninety nine percent of particulate matter down two point three microns which includes a contaminants such as dust allergens particular matter and microbes. If you are interested in seeing more about their testing they had the results on their website which we have linked to at the product launch. Chris hosmer founder of air said we are incredibly excited to launch the active plus smart mask with halo sensor this product embodies the air pop mission to help people better understand and take control of their respiratory health through a human centered approach to design science and technology. I was inspired to start air. Pop in two thousand fifteen. Because my daughter suffered a series of acute respiratory reactions to noxious air years earlier and they experience a feeling under informed and feeling helpless stayed with me since then we have innovated a full range of adult and kids products for both high performance and day to day use alike. He finished air. Pop does make wide range of masks covering all price points. So i tried one of the less expensive models to ensure the comfortable fit prior to buying the smart version to work with my iphone prices varied from around twenty dollars. Us to one hundred and forty nine dollars. There has been an incentive code to let you try one for free when i initially signed up at their web site. The mask design. Lets you get the feel the mask at the low price point. You can see the full line of masks cases in replacement inserts at air pop health dot com and see the active plus smart mask at mac minutes dot be l. u. b. r. y. dot net. Let's now deeply into the smart mask. The smart sensors measure pollutant levels and cross-reference local pollution reports to let you know when to replace the filter as well as measure biometrics related to your breathing rate during regular activity and exercise as a means to track health and fitness which we will talk about in a few minutes. The halo sensor connects to your android or ios device through bluetooth. The data is all displayed. In an i o s and android application which will simply impress even the season technology in healthcare professional with the ability to capture breathing related data and correlate that information with real time data about air quality and location can accurately tell. Where's about the status of the filter. Which up to now has been a guessing game. Most of us make judgments on our mask based on appearance versus. Its viability the halo sensor tracks.

Framework's Nirav Patel on Reinventing the Laptop
"My guest today is europe patel. He is the ceo and founder of framework a startup that is looking to reinvent the laptop by allowing consumers to choose different components an upgrade them instead of having to throw the whole device as it gets a bit older. Thank you so much for being my guest today to chat with you so Tell me tell me what inspired you to start framework. Sure yes so you know after a decade and consumer electronics at your apple for a few years a man oculus for the last seven years i got to see. Basically the consumer electronics industry from end to add and just saw an enormous amount of waste and inefficiency just felt like an industry that was kind of broken from end to add except for the big platform owners. Like the you know the facebook. Some bugles naples of the world. It's a sort of like constant race to the bottom for companies that are in the space just out product for ultra low margins trying to make up in volume and there's for consumers is that we've got these products that are just not designed to last their affectively designed to work for some period of time and that we're out of breakdown or of date and then you cycle back through by another one and the process repeats over and over again and of course the end result of all that is just electric waste piling up everywhere and so just like for years of in thinking. That can't possibly be that industry. This important has to operate in such a broken model or must be a better way and so you came upon this erm concept of allowing purchasers to upgrade different components to offer different components really going far beyond the customized to order process that we have today from some of the leading vendors. Could you tell me a bit about the first product that your looking to bring to market and what some of the design goals were and what some of the module options are going to look like. Sure definitely so. I actually got one here. That says after reproductions is not data final version. Bits effectively act completing certainly complete enough to show off the features and functionality. Arrogancy core part of the framework laptop. Is that from five feet away. It looks and feels and behaves like a normal notebook. We sort of took that as like the core sort of table. Stakes of the product is of one half a thin light performance Half inch notebook that within those constraints is as repairable. Upgradable has cut in customizable as as can be and the idea there. It was really that we don't want it to be the slight challenging trade off or you have this great long-lasting product but it looks crazy in bulky at her stuff you know hanging off the bed we wanted. The you know the ninety nine percent of the time but using the product as a normal notebook to be that familiar. Great experience in that one percent of the time where you need to replace your battery or at an upgrade or formats for that to the not. Just possible that easy to do so you can see. Some of the differentiated functionality built in is from customization perspective. You can see that the ports instead of being sort of locked into places you typically find in a notebook. Fine but any factor. We've built our expansion card system. Where on both sides. The notebook there are few expansion court bay's at order time consumer gets to choose exactly what they want and it seemed like till the obvious thing to us that every person has a different set of needs when it comes to what devices they wanna plug into their he see. So why is that. We all have to have all donald adapters. Why not just make the no but flexible to accommodate what people actually want and so building the system. We've got usb a usb c display hdmi. Mike risky we have high speed expansion as for expansion. And we're just gonna continue to add new cards and also opened up the bring in third parties to make the wrong carts. It's funny as you talk about. Some of these options reminds me of some of the days of the pcm. Cia or and there were so many options for adding adding capabilities to pc's. That's where we saw some of the first wi fi cards and there were Ethernet storage There were there. Were all of these These options and we gave away a little bit of that. I think when that That slot a disappeared so any thoughts on the kind of a third party modules that you are expecting to see come to the platform. You've gotten a since announcing product publicly. last week we've got a ton of inbound interest from folks with You know their own applications that near the nice thing about this is that developing a card is relatively straightforward for you know a company making consumer electronics products or even a hobbyist individuals. Be able to do and so you know we. We want to see cards where someone has. Some specific need builds. You know hundreds of something in fines. The hundred people out there in the world who get super excited about that one. Have that built into their laptop. We really expect to seal a pretty massive proliferation of not. Just you know these really high running parts like that. You know like video output like an age. Gm i also really each things like microcontrollers data acquisition cards. Or you know high end audio output. That really enabled things that just haven't been available inside of a note. We're actually offering this. Not just as a pre-built system which you unbox are buying up. You get your pc like you would any other one but also has a kit. Modules you can customize switch deeper level and then actually assembly yourself and lo whatever. Osu like onto it just stop. You mentioned the diy option. Of course. it's still possible today to go out and build your own. Pc and pick your own video card and processor case and and all that but it can be a bit daunting for people who aren't comfortable getting inside of a box and hooking up all of these wires so it's cool to see that the framework computer can rekindle some of that excitement even though as you say to reach a broader audience. It's really going to have to support a lot of these more mainstream options as well definitely. So we've designed this thing to really be as easy as possible service like shut us down and actually opened enough in chase on the inside. But there's just exposed fasteners on on ship with a screwdriver. Inbox the does everything that you need to be able to place an audit of small tool and then it's a rather simple effort up know popping. Open the cover and getting inci and keyboard replacement super easy offering a range of languages. And then as you get inside actually every model miss thing is clearly labeled with what it is and that takes you into repair guide for it as well as a place. You can order a replacement part upgrade art so battery ran storage. Even the entire main board can be taken out or place and we've got a simple easy to follow guides for all these and that's fantastic so it's it's almost kind of an educational tool as well for people to learn more about what's going on inside their their laptop clearly. Sustainability is one of the goals of of the product if you do have any estimates or say if framework is able to affect this kind of change in the marketplace what the impact might be in terms of eliminating or reducing waste in the pc laptop business. Yeah definitely so in general. Our goal is to enable people to use the product for as twice twice as long as they would normally use a notebook ammon and actually that is that we want those be happy ears when someone buys note but they might get like a couple of years battery lights grade and their keyboards working perfectly Function and denison the thing and then you know after that. Battery's wearing out you. Maybe you've got like you know your w he is kind of key in your unit you gotta crack in screen or something like that and you know you suffer through it for a while. But with the framework laptop. We really want people to have happy productive years with the product in a meeting new battery or need more storage space or they want more performance that they're able to just get the piece of the product that what some get back to that good work state and keep going on that alone that extension of the longevity. You know is a substantial reduction. Environmental impact is by meeting to create less new full
The Lost Cause Myth: The Civil War and Slavery
"High school was ninety nine percent black but we had a white. Ap history teacher. i can't remember her name. I just remember that. She always had a really nice manicure like she had those long nails. In like the most beautiful chris writing but i remember when we got to lake the civil war unit in our american issue class. She was like okay first of all. They're people who we're going to tell you that the civil war had nothing to do with slavery that is a lie. It absolutely had something. Maybe they're gonna talk. They're going to blame it on states rights to blame it on heritage. That is not true absolutely had something to do with slavery. I remember to sitting there being like like like. Why is he talking about. It was decades decades but it was a wild later until i finally heard about this thing called. The loss caused the last. 'cause myth is this idea that the civil war at least from the point of view of the south had nothing to do with slavery that it was about state's rights that southerners were just trying to protect their way of life that they fought honorably and righteously. They were trying to protect their families from this war of northern aggression and that robbie lee who was the head general for the confederate army's was seamus perfect. Gentlemen he didn't even want to fight the civil war in it. Tore him up inside to be doing this. And oh by the way sleigh. Wasn't even that bad. And enslaved people in the south were treated well by their masters and there were loyal to their masters. and that they even fought alongside the confederates. It's a way of buffing and smoothing out all these ugly realities of what slavery actually is into the glossy gone with the wind myth. It's like that's easier to believe right. Yeah that's easier to believe than to think like such horrible horrible. Inhumanity happened right. And you know i've been thinking about the last 'cause lately because on january six we saw confederate flags in the capital in that was truly shocking and then a couple of weeks later i was growing on twitter and i was really struck by this video as we continue our focus on most interesting new books. Cbs navien this guy named ty sidley. He had been in the military for about thirty years. He taught history at west point and he had just retired so we can finally speak his mind in full. And he's talking about how he grew up in the south and had grown up believing in the loss kaz and how robert e lee was his hero until one day he had this revelation that robert e lee was a confederate trader. He was a cruel and someone who believed deeply firmly and really is entire life that human enslavement was the best social system for the south. The result of that work. His new book robert l. e. n. Me and how old was he when he had this revelation. Did you get a sense. He was like forty years old and had a phd in history. So why did you want to talk to so many people like talking about disinformation right now. And whether it's cunanan whether it's believing like the president really won the election you know all these like we're conspiracy theories and we talk about it in this way like it's it's a new thing but you know the loss. 'cause myth is nothing if not like a huge disinformation campaign. And so we've been here before and we also know that it's really hard to have a functioning democracy when like significant portions of the country. Like can't even agree on basic facts and like one of the most basic facts is like. Why did we fight the civil war. And so like if that's the case then like we have to get a lot of people white people to like wake up and just admit. The civil war was fought because of slavery. How did we get white people to dislike. Get on the same page and here was a white person who went through. The problem has done it. Yeah
Is it time for me to break up with my business partner?
"This is very timely question for today. Skewing a wednesday About breaking up with a business partner Just on monday we head michelin. Connie our guest teacher talk about how to find the right co founder or business partner theft emit an existing relationship is something that's not easy to manage especially when has been going on for a decade like in paul's case so before we make a big decision like breaking up or buying them out. I have a few tips a few things. I want you to do or consider before you make this decision. First of all if things have been intense for twelve months for a year between you and your business partner. I'm sure they feel the same way. I'm sure they feel like this is not working. I'm sure they're frustrated and tired. And if you approach them on the subject. They're not gonna be surprised second. No one likes to be in the situation so everybody in this equation wants relief you relief. They want relief. You just have to initiate this conversation. And that's where i want to begin. You have to have an honest and open conversation with your business partner. I suggest that you actually schedule this time. do it. maybe at the start of the day On a day that you're not busy Where you have other stresses to take care of. You wanna have a bit of time and you don't want this meeting to be rushed in fact. Maybe she step away from the office and do this Breakfast at a cafe on a walk and just block book three hours of time. You know it may not take three hours. But the point here is that you don't feel rushed and the purpose of this conversation is it just put the cards on the table and talk about. Hey this is not working. Let's figure it out what's going on. Let's try to make this work. Okay you want to try to salvage of the relationship because you invested in this relationship if you ever were to replace his business partner it's going to take some time to ram them up and to build the same amount of trust have built an incredible trust with each other and that has a lot of value in business and i would just take the initiative of framing the conversation and say hey. We've both been frustrated this past year. It's been a very rockier very stressful. We've been arguing a lot You know actually notice of arguing once a week. I wanna clear the air. I want us to have a conversation where no one is judged everybody's allowed to express themselves and say what they want to say without any judgment or without any Criticism and this is a highly emotional conversation. So that intro is going to kind of calm things down. It also helps to have some structure because when you're having conversations like this it's easier to talk over each other so even if you have to say hey Let's allow each other. Have a moment to say their piece and not interrupt each other even if you have a timer on your phone and you say hey everybody gets five minutes uninterrupted just to get started so everybody can just say how they're feeling. You'll be surprised a lot of times when you do this. The other party is like i feel exactly the same way. I agree with ninety nine percent. Of what you're saying but there is something that we do disagree on and that's where you wanna get to. Hey this is one thing that we both agree on this. What's really bothering us. And it could be various things that could be. Maybe your approach to where you're going to go in the future how you want to expand what markets want expand in who will kind of customers you want to serve If you wanna take on funding or not all that kind of stuff sometimes i it's it's a wedge between two partners because one wants to do one the other one doesn't want to there's something under there and that's what we want to get to you. Wanna ask them why. Why do not want to do this. What about that makes you feel uncomfortable. And usually that's where the truth lies. People will say. Well i don't want to take on funding or debt. Because i want to be free. I didn't start a business to grow by You know all means. I can grow at my own pace and keep my tawny and that's something i really value. But they're not just going to say that just off the bat it's hard it's really you know dug deep emotions so we gotta put pull back the layers a little bit and ask. Hey why do you disagree with us. What's stopping you from doing this or you can express. This is about stopping me. This was making me feel this way. The other thing you want to explore is maybe things have changed for either person in the relationship During this decade okay their life might have changed. They might have gotten married. They must have kids. Maybe their life might have changed and they might have gone married. Have kids might have different responsibilities. Maybe they have to take care of their parents now and the services of their in when they started the business or not the same the trying to get something else out of the business then they started with
Inside The UK’s COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout
"Sarah. Let's begin with an overview of the vaccination program and how it's going we hit that big target of fifteen million jobs to the top full most vulnerable groups and it's now rolling out to all those over sixty in an effort to seventeen million more people. What is the government's next target. The vaccination rollout in the uk is going astonishingly well particularly in contrast to some of the other be pandemic grand projects like the test and trace program where the second best performer amongst large countries. Often fail and as of last night we've vaccinated sixteen and a half million people and way getting incredibly high take-up particularly in the older age groups in one or two of the age cohorts. I think it's even reached ninety. Nine percents and i think part of the reason for that is that the nhs has been in charge of the rollout in the nhl of course in the uk's immensely trusted brand if you like. And i think it's really been an advantage for the program that it hasn't relied on the kind of outsourcing the private companies that affected people's response for example to test and trace. I think one of the reasons that compliance with isolation has not been as good as it might be been is people have been getting calls from outsourced contact centres whereas here. It's the nhs that's been inviting you in your job. And the speed at. Which it's been done is astonishingly high when you think the first job happened on december the eighth and we're only now at the nineteen th of february and as a sixteen and a half million people already covered with that protection
The Future of Computing, AI, Life, and Consciousness
"What's the value and effectiveness of theory versus engineering. This dichotomy in building. Good software or hardware systems. Well it's good designs both. I guess that's pretty obvious. By engineering dean. You know reduction to practice of known methods in sciences to pursuit of discovery. Things that people don't understand or solving problems. Definitions are interesting here. But i was thinking more in theory constructing models. The kind of generalize about how things work engineering is actually building stuff. The pragmatic like okay. We have these nice models but how do we actually get things to work. May be economics is a nice example. Like economists have all these models of the economy works and how different policies will have an effect. But then there's the actual us call it engineering of like actually deploying the policies so computer design is almost all engineering and reduction to practice message now because of the complexity of the computers. We built you know you. You could think you're well we're just go write some code and then will verify and we'll put it together and then you find out that the combination of all that stuff is complicated and then you have to be inventive to figure out how to do it right. So that's definitely has happens a lot and then every so often some big idea happens but it might be one person that ideas in what in space imaging or is it in space a lot sample so one of the limits of computer performances branch predictions. So and there's there's a whole bunch of ideas about how good you could predict a branch and people said there's a limit to it and that's matata curve and somebody came up with a better way to do branch prediction of a lot better. And he published a paper on it and every computer and world now uses it and it was one idea so the the engineer who build branch fiction and hardware. We're happy to drop the one kind of training array and put it in another one so it was. It was a real idea and branch. Prediction is as one of the key problems. Underlying all of sort of the lowest level of software bows down to branch. Prediction boils down on certain computers delimited. By single thread computers ltd two things the predictability of the the branches and predictability the locale of data. So we have predictors at now predict both those pretty well. Yeah so memories. You know a couple hundred cycles away. Local cash couple cycles away. When you're executing fast virtually all the data has to be in the low cash so simple program says you know. Add one to every element array. It's real easy to see what the stream data will be. But you might have a more complicated program. That's you know says. Get a get a element of this array. Look at something. Make a decision. Go get another element. It's kinda random and you think that's really unpredictable. And then you make this big predictor. That looks at this kind of pattern. And you realize well if you get this date in this data then you probably want that one and if you get this one this one and this one you probably want that one and is that theory. Is that engineering like the paper. Those written was that Todd kinda kinda discussion or is it more like. Here's a hack. that works. well it's a little bit of both. There's information theory. I think somewhere to actually trying to prove but once once you know the method implementing. It is an engineering problem. Now there's a flip side of this which is in a big design team. What percentage of people think. They're they're they're they're they're planner their life's work is engineering. Versus design inventing things. So lots of companies will reward you for filing patents. Some many big companies got stock because to get promoted. You have to come up with something new and what happens is everybody's trying to do some random new thing ninety nine percent of which doesn't matter and the basics get neglected and or they get. There's a dichotomy day. Think like the cell library. Baixa cad tools. You know our basic you know software validation methods that simple stuff you know they want to work on the exciting stuff and then they spend lots of time trying to figure out how to patent something and that's mostly useless but the break was on simple stuff. No no you know you have to do the simple stuff really well. If you're building a building bricks you want great brex. So you go to two places to sell brexit one guy says yeah there over there an ugly pile and the other guy is like lovingly tells you about the fifty kinds of bricks and how hard they are beautiful. They are now square. They are you know which when you buy bricks for him which is going to make a better house.
S6 E4 - How do I use my Post-9/11 GI Bill? - FULL
"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are all ready asking. Don't today show. I want to share three things with you. Just three and here they are. I won't answer the question. Hopefully definitively how do you use post nine eleven. Gi bill number two. I will share with you how to maximize post nine. Eleven bill benefits and finally. I will tell you how you can buy side eleven. Gi bill benefits with another amazing benefits. That you've earned the most notable programs if you're interested in hearing more about that which i have to assume you are stay tuned and you are going to hear every single bit. Stay with us. Who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover you. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to play. I walked through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis often crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here to earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself. So i wrote a book simply titled resolve resolve is a book that is apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com so today's question surrounds the post nine eleven. Gi bill as no doubt. You've figured out by now and specifically how you use it but the truth is if that was the only question i answered on today's show who would be a very short episode now using the post nine eleven. Gi bill is really really easy now. Of course. I want you to listen to this entire episode and if you do i have a special gift just for you toward the end of the episode. But i'll tell you right upfront. Using the post nine eleven she i bill is probably the easiest thing you will ever do when it comes to taking advantage of the benefits you've earned through your military service now before we dive in. I want to share some of my method with you kind of how we came to put this episode together posted a question on the courage to fight again facebook page. I shared that question on several veteran focused facebook groups and we got more engagement with this single question than with anything we've ever posted and the question was just this is what has been your experience with a post. Nine eleven jabil. We got over eleven hundred comments and i've read almost every single one of them and around ninety nine percent of those responses. Give or take. They were very positive in nature. Talking about how easy it was to us how it was the best benefit you can take advantage of and how to get the most out of the post nine eleven gi bill and not only did those who responded answer that question but they answered so many more as well man here. I am rolling right into the episode. And i haven't even introduced myself yet so if you were here for the first time you may be like. Who is this guy. Talking about. The post nine eleven. Gi bill well. My name is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and as you've probably already guessed on the host of this podcast so let's dive right in at the top of the show. I promise you three things. Let's tackle the first one. How do i use my post nine. Eleven gi bill. Now i'm going to assume you're already eligible for the gi bill. So i'm not going to dive into that part. But i will post a link in the show notes about your eligibility and how you can determine your eligibility in case you need to dig into that a bit more but step one is apply for the benefits on the va website. And guess what. I'll post that link in the show notes as well. You need a few things when you apply. Here's what you need your social security number your military history and that just basic military history. You don't need your full your your details of where you're stationed in when you were stationed there and all of that. He just need basically the years you serve and the date service egypt education history of the schools. You've attended other degrees. You hold things like that and finally basic information about the school or trading facility that you want to attend because you don't have to attend just a traditional community college or university or state scored like that. You can attend a variety of training facilities. Let's say you wanted to become an h vac technician. There are schools or training facilities that you can learn how to do that if you want to become a cybersecurity expert while their schools training facilities we can do that so again just some basic information about the school or the training facility that you want to attend now. You can do this by mail. Apply by mail using the va form or obviously the most preferred way is to apply online. That's going to be the fastest takes about thirty days or so for the va to verify eligibility. And that's it for step one. Step two you're just going to reach out to the school. the understanding. here's that you've already been accepted or you're well on your way to being accepted to the school. So you contact the school and request to speak to the va rep and these are your best friends in the post nine eleven gi bill business. Now i know i've heard some mixed reviews about. Va reps But they do know the school and they know the va. So they're going to be able to share some things with you. Some indepth information that you're not gonna be able to find him the va website. You're not gonna find on the school's website you're going to have to talk to them directly and step three. Follow the directions of your. Va school rep number. Four step four. Get your education. It's really that easy now. Look with nearly all things. Va there are multiple paths to get to the same destination but those steps has share with you apply online. Contact the school link with your. Va rep. That really is the simplest and most direct route to taking. Hold of your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits. So if i would have had just a single question for this episode. We'd already be done. But i promise you i would share with you and the next is really important and that is how to maximize your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits now. There are a bunch of ways to do this. And i'll mention those in passing and you can do your own homework and figure out if those are something you want or need to explore. But i want to focus on just two ways to maximize your benefit so your options. As far as maximizing your benefit goes find a yellow ribbon. School is one option tuition assistance. Top up that's another program that the va has. You may be eligible for you may need to look into There's also the option of a stem scholarship science technology engineering or math. If you're majoring in any of those categories you may be eligible for scholarship. Veteran education courses aka vet tech also tutorial assistance if you're struggling with biology or chemistry or calculus or whatever may be and you need a tutor to get tutorial assistance with the. Va actually pay you to go to a tutor. She can pass that course now here the two i want to talk about all the ones i just mentioned are in this section of the website that talks about the posting. I love jabil bill. But all the ones i mentioned in this section are in a section called additional information very simple and one of those is finding yo a yellow ribbon school. Excuse me and the second is not mentioned in that additional information but it is getting that monthly housing allowance and again. I'm going to dive into that but let's talk about the yellow ribbons school here for just a minute. So the yellow ribbon program can help you pay for hire out of state private school or graduate school tuition. That the post nine eleven. Gi bill does not cover so tuition might be higher than what the gi bill will cover or you want to attend a school as a nonresident student. Non resident of that state in other words. Another thing this is more of a side note. Not yellow ribbon schools specific. Your state may also provide additional benefits for you as a veteran. And that is something you should look into with your state. Truth be told your. Va rep at your chosen. School should be able to answer that question for you or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. All right so that is the yellow ribbon school piece. I wanted to talk about and the other piece. That's not listed in additional information. section is section one. Oh seven sounds very boring but it's very very important. And that is the location based housing allowance the location based housing allowance. Now you will get a housing allowance for using the post nine eleven gi bill and if you attend all online classes this rate that it is set at is half the national average of an e five with dependence for their basic allowance for housing. So that doesn't change unless the national average changes. I know when i was taking a few online courses. It was eight hundred dollars a month. I don't remember the exact number but we're the location based housing allowance. Really comes into play is when you were attending in person classes. Now i want to set the record straight here then. There's this common misconception that your housing allowance rate is based on where you live. This is not the case. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you're attending classes. I'm going to say that again. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you are attending classes. Let me just share a little story from my own experience. I decided to take some undergraduate courses my undergraduate degree before went into the army. But i wanted to just take advantage of the post nine. Eleven she i built a little bit wasn't ready to work on my master's degree or anything so i was like you know what. Maybe i'll just take some courses. I know i have to take at least one of those in person. So i can get that in person Housing allowance right that location based housing loans. Well right up. The road from probably ten minutes or less away was a campus of the school. I was wanting to attend. They had multiple campuses all over the city and the housing allowance. Right there was. I don't know eight nine hundred dollars. Something like that. But if i would drive an extra seven or eight minutes i could get the location. Based housing allowance ended up being like eleven. Eleven sixty seven. Ninety i don't remember now. It's been a few years but i was like. Hey i will totally drive a few extra minutes to get the extra couple hundred dollars or so a month because to three hundred dollars a month because that just makes more sense because i want to get the same education and going to get the same course the same credit for the course. Why not just drive a few extra minutes so again. The housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you were attending classes. And i just mentioned this but keep in mind. You only need to attend a single class in person. that's it you can take the rest of your classes online and still collect the housing allowance based on the zip code of where you attending that one class. Now let's talk about kovic for a minute though we're we're still in the midst of this pandemic. I don't wanna say the middle. Hopefully we're nearing the end of it. But cova has missed a lot of things up our way of life our jobs our relationships a lot of things and it has changed the way a lot of schools do business and that is i'll say inadvertently affecting those of us trying to use the post nine eleven. Gi bill and some schools. They're not even holding in person. Classes yet and and veterans are facing this never before seen challenge and in fact. This was one of the concerns. someone maybe more than one person brought up when i ask about experiences with the post nine eleven. Gi bill. so. I just mentioned that you get paid at half the national average of an e five with dependence if you attend school all align. Let's say that's eight hundred dollars but if you attend at least one class in person you'll receive your housing allowance based on zip code of the school year attending so again when i attended in person. Who's eleven dollars a month so it made sense to at least attend one school. Excuse me or one class in person and this is where co vid really comes into play some schools. Excuse me some schools or universities that were previously holding in person. Classes do not even have the option to register for in person classes. Now which means that. If he veteran was attending in person in receiving that in-person housing allowance rate that housing allowance rate has suddenly changed to the online rate. And i've done a good bit of research into this. I have not found anything in my research for my conversations with veterans or anything social media no way to really get around this so to speak. So if you found a way to continue receiving the in-person housing allowance rate while attending only online due to covid. I would love if you would share that with us by reaching out to me at podcast at courage to fight again dot com. So i can send it out to the rest of our listeners. Finally and i'm really running low on time here but i promise three things at the top of the show how to use your gi bill. We cover that outta to maximize your gi bill. We cover that and now how to combine your gi bill benefits with another benefit. You may or may not have heard of and that benefit is vocational rehabilitation or volk rehab as it's often called now technically its known as veteran readiness and employment or vr and e but no one actually calls it that or at least not yet. It just hasn't a katelyn voc rehab. Though in fact is probably a better benefit than the post nine eleven. Gi bill pays for literally everything. You need special equipment for your degree. Plan pays for that. You have to pay for parking at your school. Pays for that. You'd pay for books pays for that pays for pretty much everything and just about anything you do that has to do with getting your education and i'm saying this because i want to reiterate it vo korea will pay for that and so it does seem at least initially to be a better benefit than the post nine eleven gi bill. But here's where you can. Combine them nate. Because you can't use them both at once you can use either one or the other because if you use vocal rehab or any it will cut into the total time you can use your gi bill. So here's the hack if you will if you use all thirty days of your post nine eleven gi bill and then apply for your vote rehab benefit. Frankly i'd opt for a bit more. Forty five sixty days. Something like that just to be on the safe side. But thirty days minimum is what i found volk rehab or vr knee or whatever. You want to call. It goes through a different process than the post nine eleven. Gi bill but leveraging these two benefits together is really the best of both worlds. And here's why. I say that because let's say you use just about all of your post nine eleven gi bill to get your bachelor's degree in psychology. But you wanna be a licensed professional counselor. Will you need at least a master's degree for that and you've used almost all of your jive. Ill what are you gonna do. Well then you go to your local. Vr knee or volk rehab counselor and say. Hey here's what i need to do. And then you move into the vote rehab program now again. Your mileage may vary. Because i've heard again a lot of mixed stories mixed reviews of working with folk rehab counselor but that is your process and again i will post a link to these processes or actually there's a few links but all these processes and all these resources in the show with that we have reached the end of season six episode. So what are your questions voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast kurds. Fight again dot com. So what's on your mind. What questions are you asking. What are your family members asking or join the post. Nine eleven veterans families facebook group and post your question. There have block of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accept the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ well. I'll see you right back here. Two weeks from the day and the next veteran questions we'll be asking is this. How do i increase my va. Disability rating ohio and for the special gift. I promised every thursday evening is hosting a sous vide for justice guys who are veterans. Sorry ladies you're coming soon. The training for that. We will be walking through the resolved journey. Together get your copy of resolve for thirty percent off using the code asked and just head over to courage fight again dot com and click on.

What to do with all those disposable masks? Turn them into roads, researchers say.
"On of the many adverse effects of the pandemic on the environment has been the sheer amount of waste generated. More people are using more items like disinfectant wipes anything where you might of fudged the lines on perceived hygiene in the name of sustainability before some people of now thrown in the towel on that and picked up a paper towel instead in there are a laundry list of items that are good for sanitation or preventing virus transmission but bad for the environment and high up on that list masks surgical masks and ninety five k. And ninety five's any kind that's meant to be used. Only once or a handful of times risking it as demands say there are six point eight billion disposable mask being used around the world each day so this is a big problem. Well at our. Mit tech and design university in melbourne are experimenting with using disposable face masks to create roads in a study published in the journal science of the total environment. They looked first at the possibility of incorporating the masks into road building materials and then into their engineering benefits. Quoting are mit university. Roads are made of four layers. Sub-grade base sa- base and asphalt on top all the layers must be both strong and flexible to withstand the pressures of heavy vehicles and prevent cracking processed building rubble known as recycled concrete aggregate or rca can potentially be used its own for these three base layers but the researchers found adding shredded face masks to rca enhances the material while simultaneously addressing environmental challenges onto fronts ppe disposal and construction waste construction renovation and demolition account for about half the waste produced annually worldwide and australia. About three point one five million tonnes of rca is to stockpiles each year rather than being reused. The study identified an optimal mixture. One percent shredded face masks to ninety nine percent. Rca that delivers on strength. While maintaining good cohesion between the two materials the michener performs well when tested for stress acid and water resistance as well as strength defamation and dynamic properties meeting all the relevant civil engineering specifications and quotes the researchers say that using their recycled road material for just one kilometer of a two lane. Road would use three million masks and therefore seven ninety three million tons of waste from going to the landfill now one thing they need to further research is how the process would change when they incorporate. Sterilizing used face masks. Because so far the experiments were conducted using unused still professor g lee. Who leads the are. Mit school of engineering research team said quote if we can bring circular economy thinking to this massive waste problem. We can develop the smart and sustainable solutions. We need and quotes and until such a program comes to your local area. Don't forget to snip the year bands of your masks before you throw them away to prevent sea critters from getting stuck in
One of the Dumbest Social Media Marketing Lies Ever

So this thing that you hear all the time be everywhere on every platform there's new platforms coming up all the time we gotta get our strategy for this or strategy for that we got us putting out content content content content. You gotta be everywhere on every platform and you gotta do it a hundred to two hundred times a day all right. So there's a ninety nine percent chance that you're doing too much most of us do we get we're marketing people. We chase shiny objects. We come up with cool ideas. We wanna try shit experiment etc etc on episode ninety. We talked about the power of shaving. The dog shave that doggy down. Remember the sage. Words of bruce lee who said i fear not the man who was practiced ten thousand kicks once but i fear the man who has practiced one kick ten thousand times in one of the reasons that many of us feel like. We're constantly behind on our social media. Marketing is dumb. Fuck advice we've heard about being on every platform and puking out all this content so let me share with you counter perspective. There's a legendary copywriter named ben. Settle s. e. T. t. l. e. There'll be a link to his website and the show notes or you can just google him if you like. He sells writing services. He's copywriter. he's got some books in some courses and some newsletters and things along those lines and he's got a very well known as well known cult. Figure a niche in the Copywriting world and if you check out his site you'll see why an ben settled does not have any social media. He's got a post out about why he cut it all out and essentially he thought it was a waste of time and so he cut it all out and i don't know ben personally but it doesn't seem to have affected his business and his profile is probably bigger now than it was a couple years ago when he cut all of his social media ties and he essentially said he thought it was a waste of time so he didn't wanna do it anymore. I don't know about you but to me. There's something very appealing about this approach. Part of me wants to go full bend. Settle in. But i have it so if this is too extreme for you or your company or your brand i get it. It's too extreme for me to probably But ben is onto something. It took me a while to realize that i should not be on all social media platforms and over time i've discovered which platforms Work and which ones don't for me so for example platforms that are tuned to sound bites and silliness. Not so much for me. I suck on twitter totally suck same thing on instagram. Yeah i like to post photos of the the hands or our cat being some pretty shit at the beach or whatever but like when i tried to do marketing podcasts and books and stuff on social media on instagram. I failed completely. I'm still not sure. I understand what a real is. And what a what a fucking this is into that is so the bottom line is on twitter and instagram. I cut it out. I still have accounts on both platforms. But i stopped trying to get anything done in terms of promoting podcasts or books or any of the stuff that i do. I have the accounts. I put photos of being upper. Whatever i do tweet. Some business stuff on twitter but my expectation is zero on both instagram and twitter there just for fun and Have never been on tiktok. I find it stupid fucking stupid. So i'm not interested. Hey if you like it by all means have at it. But you're not gonna see me on tiktok anytime soon. I gave pinterest discovered. Not for me If you a regular listener talked about clubhouse recently as i said a couple of episodes ago clubhouse it's interesting. It's great but the reality is hosting a webinar hosting platform with no video. So i've tried it a little bit. I wasn't that motivated or excited by it. Maybe try a little bit more. We'll see who don't know on that one Cora and facebook are like bees for me. there okay Better than facebook or corre as you probably know is a question and answer site and so i like both reading them and responding to them. I think that's very very cool. And when you respond to somebody's question It's a more powerful thing to just sort of posting something generically out there and hoping it catches. Somebody's i Facebook is all right for us. We've a small. Facebook group not really focused on it Check it out on a fairly regular basis and engage with people But a mistake that a lot of marketers make is they promote their facebook group We don't do that member. They're facebook's customers not yours when people go to your facebook page or your facebook group. Facebook controls what they see what they don't seem so the only thing we asked people to join is Is to go to a lock dot com and join our newsletter now our newsletter category pirates because with a newsletter. We have somebody's email. There's no tech giant in between the two parties. So when i joined a newsletter it's me and the newsletter provider when you join our newsletter same thing and when we send you something you'll get it and if you don't like it you can opt out but i don't like promoting a platform facebook because they control whether or not people see our post how they participate in our group and i think that's bullshit that's just me so with a newsletter there's no tech giant inbetween creator and consumer Now from social platform perspective. What has worked for me by a mile. The best is lincoln. And it's tune to my skills and what i'm looking for in social media first of all i like to write. So linked in is more of a longer form writing platform. Brevity is not my thing so tweets have never been what i'm good at and so Linked in is more optimized for long form written content. I also like real thoughtful dialog believe it or not that happens for me on a very regular basis on linked in a way that it's impossible on something like twitter and as a side note. I will not deal with anybody online. Who's got a fake name or you know his anonymous or any of that. I like dealing with real people. And on linked in most of the profiles there are real people. Most of them are professionals. Not morons and so you can have a thoughtful conversation with people on on lincoln and i deeply enjoy that now. We also have a youtube channel. By way of example it's mostly useless for us. Became clear to me early on that to be successful on youtube. You couldn't just drop of video of two people talking for an hour on the video on youtube and hoped to be successful that you need to create purpose built content for youtube. So we don't really do much. They're either however we did tripled down on audio podcasting and we tripled down on the newsletter for the reasons. I already talked about so what what tends to work for me is longer form content Podcasting and writing. So what is what's my point. What what does all this have to do with you I think when you think about your social media marketing whether you're doing it for yourself as an individual or for your category company and brand on a as an individual pick one platform that really works for you and tripled down on that platform. I'll tell you when. I when i just stop fucking around on all the other platforms and religious focused on linked in my life. Just got a lot simpler and much more effective. Frankly now if you're thinking about social media marketing for your category your brand and your company maybe instead of picking one pick three but just three be legendary. Those three maybe have a presence on others. I get that but only pick three for your company. Brandon category be legendary at those three create purpose built content for those platforms. Really figure it out and make it
Nintendo Switch Outsells the 3DS
"Switch has sold seventy nine point eighty seven million and that is hell of a lot and the nintendo switch light has almost surpassed the sales of the we. You just the light. Why oh man. Yeah that's a it's a big number it is. It's pretty incredible. Just just like think about the the roller coaster ride that nintendo has been on with insane success of the we the we and the insane crater of the we you not that again. We have to caveat. There's every time we say this financially. I still think that system was really fun. Rain like it was a financial disaster or at least a sales disaster and now this is like they're on top of the world. it's it's insane that trajectory. It's really really yeah. I think honestly. I don't think it's hyperbole leads to say that in japan console warsaw and no. It's the what was it so far this year. Ninety nine percent of all software sold in japan was for the switch right eighty and like hardware was and what is important to note he is that intendo always dominated the handheld sector in japan and that market has turned away from consoles quite a bit right and so in a way. It's a sad story right if the. Ps five dozen succeed in japan. That's a bummer. Because we might get fewer titles for that platform from japanese deaf students. Or maybe they'll they'll be serving more kind of like the western tastes but either way something could be lost but It's obviously really good for the switch. So i looked at the data Their nintendo still expecting to sell two point. Four million units in this fiscal year. Remember that fiscal year ends in march. It's not a calendar year. Which means the entire year for the intended would be twenty six point five million so that stacks up with how the we did back in its heyday. Like the i think the fourth year for the we was like something around twenty five million so the switch will be doing better than the we however in. This is the thing that i think. A lot of people are ignoring at the same time. Nintendo back then sold thirty one million. Dss right and so. We have these The hamilton the console lines are combined into one. And so it's not exactly the same scenario and so fewer pieces of hardware being sold in japan. I'm because we have one console race now but what it means like at the end of the year you know. I mean first of all at the end of the quarter. You'll be seeing the the switch. Probably clock in at eighty two million sold worldwide which means it is ahead of the psp which was a big success in japan. It's ahead of the gpa. Which was a big success. Everywhere in is right behind the xbox three sixty so the end of the year will probably see the switch ahead of the three sixty and the ps three. And i also wanted to mention that. New horizons is reached. Thirty one point eighteen million sold so it. It's very close behind the best selling game so far. Which is mario kart. Eight deluxe which is at thirty three point. Forty one million. Which i know we've talked about before because this is a week game. We don't crazy so we might actually see a made for switch game take over the first slot sometime. This year with a wonders never cease game specifically aid for the nintendo switch. And not the we i. We talked about the blessing. And the curse of mario kart eight selling so well because it's like nintendo has less incentive of cranking out. Mario kart nine right. Yeah but but but hopefully hopefully not hopefully they think they can do those numbers again with the marcotte nine with completely different tracks and all that i feel like i would have to write. I know horse. I'm sorry to bring this up on blue. But i i saw you talking about elegies mansion three has sold more than a lot of zelda games in the past. Yeah which is. I think that's really cool. I mean you just mentioned three again if you are. One of the one of the switch owners are listening to this. Podcast does not has not played it. You make a huge mistake. There's a reason ten nintendo boy that studio the last game is a huge step up from the original. Luigi is mentioned which was developed in house by nintendo and a huge step up over the the second game. So i think that's really cool that we're seeing this sort of success on you know mario's little brother and tall brother. Whatever he is. Basically the macy of mario felt. It's true and i. I've noticed that now really really cool. I am on those swift owners. Who has not played louise three so i think it's worth it. It's

A Chat With Our Mechanic, Ray Villalba
"What's wally. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good today. we have. I believe our guests and all four guests have been very different but all help pilots who spend time behind the prop. Today we have ray the elbow with us. He owns any aviation and has done ninety nine percent of the maintenance work from my flight school and many of the people on the airport. Welcome to the show. Ray thank you. Thank you for having me. We get asked a lot of systems questions while the and i do and there's obviously a lot of maintenance that goes on and i spend a lot of time on the phone. I wish i actually talked to you. A little less ray but We spend a lot of time on the phone with each other and we wanted to have. Ray come talk to all the listeners. A little bit about what goes on in the world of maintenance maybe share some tips and tricks and some things that maybe people should be doing that. They're not doing on a regular basis So ready to get started. Tell us a little bit about you. Your background kind. Of all of your acronyms that are at the end of your name. So we understand what you're able to craft and stuff like that Well my my most of my experience comes from general aviation got about one year airline experience but mainly generally it's about twenty two years now I i have an mp in and i Which pretty much mainly mainly means. I could sign off. Annuals and three seven's does the i. I think it comes up a lot where somebody said. Hey you have to have an eye for that. And i don't think i think people just know of an acronym but what does that really mean it stands for inspection authorization okay and it's it's really not a certificate or license is just an authorization to sign off annuals and three three sevens which are major repairs and alterations Other than that you're. Emp's what you really use. Why does so. Maybe i'm wrong. But i have this perception that very few. Amp's haven't a or not what was a very few have an. I is that true and is it hard to get her. it's it's it can be a little difficult to get For starters you gotta have Three years in the field And you got. It's only a written test but the test is very difficult for me. It is right. I'm not a good test taker but it's difficult only because they just made it that way And unless you're out there doing annuals and actually doing three three seven's you really don't need it. Uranium p mostly everything. You can do If you're working out in the industry and the airline you'll never use the i In general aviation. Use it every day if you're doing annuals and major alterations and repairs Which is why a lotta. Ap's don't get it. I got it. I have to have it because we run a shop. So we gotta sign off annuals and we do. Stc's all the time required three three seven. So that's why i have it And then again you know you got to report to the fa When you have sure how more than you would with ampy sure we. We also share a lot of friends in common pilots both on the field and around the city You have a huge. I would say fan. Following lots of people speak very highly of your work and unease work. Tell people that might not be right here around us. What kind of work. You do how you help. Pilots get their planes back in the air just a little bit in case somebody wants to fly down and have you do their annual forms. Well mainly You know we stay busy with strictly. Piston aircraft We we do so many of them you know we could turn them pretty quick We know all their quirks We know pretty much where to get the parts In a timely manner right and that's that will help keep the airplane flying which is what most owners want In pretty much we have the crew at the shop to do it We have a person that does strictly she metalwork. We have one guy that does you know. It's real good at electrical so he keeps up with the electrical portions and all that combine helps. You know the shot move move a lot quicker And makes everything go a lot smoother in the long run. Saving time downtime and money for custom
