How to Dream BIG
"So dreaming big I'm a big time. Dreamer I have a lot of friends who are big time dreamers. I'm realistic dreamer but I. Just believe that. If you shoot for the stars, you end up getting a lot right even if you don't get to the store you want to go to. You'RE GONNA get a lot more? If you shoot for the stars then if you don't then if you play small, you don't fly small. You're board place mall. You're born. Play big. Let me. Ask You a question. Do you still dream? About what you're going to be when you grow up. It's funny as I've gotten older I've never stopped that I never have. I get more excited, the older I get, and I find myself years ago when I was a younger guy when I was in my twenties and stuff I would. I would talk to people in their seventies and eighties, and they would say I still feel like I'm eighteen. And I never got it, but as I got older decade after decade after decade. I get it now. But one thing I've also noticed a lot of people don't have the dreams that they used to have. They're afraid to have them. They've forgotten how to dream. I still do that I still wonder what's GonNa be when Scott grows up and I'll let you figure it out, but I'm having a good time doing what I'm doing right now. Those visions. Those type officials keep hopping around in your head. Think about it for just a minute. Do they miss a reason? They're in there. As I've said many times before. If these ideas pop into your head, you got a couple of choices you can go. Do something about it sometimes scary. You cannot do something about it sometimes scary, or you can sit there on the fence getting spinners in your ass worrying about the whole time, drive yourself crazy for the next ten fifteen twenty thirty years. I highly suggest you don't do that. I want you to take those ideas on your head. Look at them and acknowledge him as a yeah. This is Kinda cool. So. They're popping around your head I. Want You to? Think about this. One is your big awesome motivating mission. What's your big awesome motivating i? Call Them Damn too big awesome motivating mission. I have goals like that as well. What's driving you? Where do you WanNa, go think about it inside and I will tell you this. In with ninety nine I really truly is ninety nine percent. I'll get people on the phone with coaching calls. I talked to people on the phone a lot all week long. I'm talking to people on the phone all over the world. And I will tell you. Uh Question. I'll say so. What's in your head? What's going on what really want to do? What are your dreams? Which your big awesome motivating mission and the global? No. I so I know you don't know, but if you did, what would it be? And then they go POW for the next ten minutes. They told me exactly what it is, and then if they forget it gone and I said, did you hear what you just said? Did you hear all that stuff? That just came out of your mouth. Yeah. We're there come from. the, smile on their face, peers I can hear it on the phone or seat on the call. So you have asked that question these visions in your hand. These things you want to do when you grow up what's driving you? What's at big awesome motivating mission? Mine is to do what I do. The Best I could possibly do knowing full well that if I do it really really well. Other people get all excited they Scott I wanNA I. Want what you've got going on there I won't come. Hang on to you a little bit. I wouldn't suggest it because I move fast is going to be unpredictable. I can be a radic. Sometimes I like to sleep in late on Saturday stuff like that. You probably wouldn't like all that stuff, but. What drives you Bam. What Dreams Excite you? Give you a feeling a happiness. I know that Scott. I can't do it I have this idea. Somebody really excites me I. Just be so happy doing that, but I can't do it. Why not? Why not because it scares me? Bam sure it does anything bigger than you. You never done before. It's going to scare you. What excites you though? Scares excites at the same time. Have you ever noticed how close to feelings are. Somebody screaming Oh my God. They're screaming. Let me say here. I come to see the day. Underdog is here. You go there, and you find out somebody's laughing hysterically himself. I thought you were dying. Laughing Fund Yukos cracking up. He cracks me up when he says that stuff. What's cares what excites you? It's kind of the same in that. Oh my God think about that for a second. Get excited your goal and yet it feels like you're fearful Bam. What makes you smile? When you think about doing it. It's that simple. Makes, you smile, you say. If I could get myself to Bam. I know it's in their. My question is. Do you have the nerve to? Admit, what's in there? Take a few minutes and figure out which Bam is and stand up. Take a SIP repeat Yvonne going to get what you want. Because I'M GONNA. Come over to your house and Meka. That's the case. Okay, I am.
The Skeptics Guide
"Today is Wednesday June, twenty, four, th twenty twenty, and this is your host Steven Novella joining me this week or Bob Novella. Cara Santa Maria Addy Jada Villa Hey. Guys and Evan Bernstein good evening, folks. How is everyone doing? Well Steve Good question. Yeah I've realized now that I really know how well I'm doing. I'm trying to figure out like. What twenty twenty like I don't know. Should I talked to you about how? I'm feeling today or ninety eight point six? Yeah, Vega question. It is a big question because it's. Everything is so weird. You know it is yeah, it's not natural. For data, let's go over. The covert numbers is so here's the. Interesting thing because if you look at the curve for the world, we're still on the upswing. This this pandemic is is accelerating still. Yep, we haven't even crested the first wave. You know if you're looking at new daily cases worldwide that slope is still increasingly going up if Daily new cases, the greatest single number of new cases on June, nineteenth, one, hundred, eighty, two, thousand, one, hundred and eighty two cases June nineteenth. So you know that we have to keep that in mind. I think if you're on a part of the world that's past the crest of the wave. It feels like it's over, but it really isn't and the United. States is a microcosm of that right because the wave is going through the United States and the the. The northeast were four of the five of us live were passed the peak and we're on the downslope, but other than the northeast rest of the country and most states are still increasing. There's still pre crest. You know of that I believe we have like a weird thing where we were extended in California now it's like getting worse again like we thought we were on the other side of it, but then when we opened of course well, that's the other thing. Nope the opening, so it's kind of a by humped wave because we did manage to flatten up, and now it's turning, but we didn't really turn it down, but it did start in those in some states it was flat, and then they opened up cautiously, and that's good, and then some states opened up not so cautiously, and they're surging. They are spending Arizona is the worst right now, but Farda Florida. Yes, or then a bunch of other states are really spiking. You know so. We're not out of the woods yet. You know he's this again. This is the the the. This is the home stretch, but this is that part of the marathon where like you really gotta dig down and keep going? And that's challenging because. Everyone wants to be outside. We all WanNa be at the beach. We all want to be at parties and social gatherings. It's a normal time of year otherwise to do those sorts of things. But. We still have to be cautious and take all the precautions necessary so total cases worldwide nine point, five million total deaths, four, hundred and eighty, three thousand are approaching half a million in the US for a Ching one hundred twenty thousand deaths. That's what are the projection Steve? So it's really hard. Yes, we're. We're at at least one hundred nineteen thousand. They're saying in the US alone two point three million cases. This is almost certainly an underestimate underestimate. The states that are that are spiking the most South Carolina Florida, Texas Oklahoma and Idaho. Rope I've read. One model, one analysis that says that this I wave is probably gonNA, and with about two hundred thousand. That's about where we're going to land and then second waves. Anyone's guess right? It depends on what happened at that point, but given that we're at one hundred nineteen now and most states are still on the increase that seems like a reasonable estimate. But then you the farther out you go. Obviously, the more variables there are so becomes harder to predict and like there's still the big unknown of. When a vaccine is going to become available here, conflicting things so I think the experts are just making their best gas based upon where we are right now, but nobody could really say for sure, but that could be a game changer will see. This is getting a lot of variables there and don't forget. Some people estimate that or estimate that our numbers now one hundred nineteen thousand could be off by thirty fifty percent could be low by thirty. Really did yeah the. Be. Fifty one specific thing I wrote my my science based medicine blog this morning on this mess event held in Phoenix Mega Church. Because heard about this. Yeah, I was actually interviewed for inside edition which they would last night and I wrote about it today as well, and they're holding a trump rally. They're actually they did yesterday, right? But the the the owners of the Church said. We're good. We're okay because we've installed this special air ventilation air filtration system that will remove ninety nine percent ninety nine point nine percent of the covert virus within ten minutes. So everyone is saw every leasing. Why don't we have? Every plane if that works, yeah, the church is a massive complex, but it has a main auditorium that can hold several thousand people at one time, so it's it's bad. 'cause like this big kind of some somewhat circular auditorium. So you know I wrote an article basically breaking down why that claim that is total nonsense the idea that if you have an effective air filtration system. That you can mask either in side so a couple. Quick points hit. The highlights the idea that it removes ninety nine point nine percent of the virus that. Isolation is plausible because filters can do that, the question is how much time would it take to do that now? They said ten minutes, but that's based upon study of a small closed, sealed off room,
Pandemic projections suggest requiring masks could save 33,000 lives in U.S.
"There's a new projection from IHS. Emmy University of Washington which does a lot of the projections. They say that if people wear masks. Ninety five percent of the public, then thirty thousand lives in the United States could be saved just by October first. Does that suggest to you that every governor where there are? Outbreaks should be mandating masks in public. I do now that we have this guidance about how effective moss can be in the right conditions I think we need to be much clearer and telling people exactly what they need to do to protect themselves and their communities and this projection. Jake comes off the back of another projection. The estimate that seventy to ninety nine percent of Americans who died from covid nineteen that the Dow's were unethical. Unethical an unnecessary and could have been prevented if America had acted more aggressively early on and follow the steps of countries such as Germany and Singapore, so we missed the boat already. We've been late to the game. We have been getting poor communications Americans, and misguiding them I think now's the time to step that up and try to mitigate tens of thousands of Americans dying from covid nineteen. Only a little time but I want you to take a look at this video of a city councilman in Scottsdale Arizona Against Masks take a listen. I can't. I can't play. Obviously an incredibly insensitive reference to the death of George, Floyd, what we've also seen a judge in taxes assaulted after he issued a face covering order. What's your reaction? This is so such an awful exploitative co-opting of the icon brief statement, which is literally black Americans fighting for their right to live and not be killed by racist, and just speaks to what we've been talking about for the past few minutes that wearing a moth is a simple public health intervention. It protects other people. It need not be a political
Delivering Biologics Orally
"Thanks for joining us. Daniel, thank you so much for inviting them. At least to be here, we're going to talk about Ronnie. Therapeutics effort to develop biologics orally the potential for this technology and the technology underlying this. What's the range therapeutics were talking about? How big a market opportunity are we talking about? That is a great first question to start with so. The the range of biologics there is no constraint on rich biologic. We can deliver for instance we can deliver peptides, insulin, or bt, age, human growth, hormone, or or Therapeutic antibodies like humira percent. Dick's in others. And other Larger molecules that are like factor aid. For instance for there is no constrained on kind of one accuser. We can deliver so therefore. The market that we address is merely. In? Hundred fifty billion dollars overall march that we we can. you know and can get a small piece of that. That great outcome. What's the case for doing this? What problems would be addressed and what benefits would there be? So you know when I started looking at this problem of the. Daily injections and Found that the people have tried turning. Insulin into oral formats or Even inhaled. Insulin end there. Other drugs people have tried. D- owning them in rural in fact over the last fifty years. There have been more than one hundred attempts main Trying to convert a few of these peptides into oil, and the vast majority of those efforts failed on the handful that have had some success in Rene. Say some success what I mean is. bio, absorption, or bioavailability, as it's called or amount of drug that is absorbed is Less than one percent so. compared to Subcu- injection. You're you're throwing a ninety nine percent of the drug. Because the enzymes in the gastric gi track really digestion breakdown in so the the chemistry approaches approaches that are employed cannot protect the drug long enough and well enough do get better than one percent absorption. have. There been other challenges to doing this. You know the the the significant amount of effort that has gone has gone into this chemistry based approaches Tried to block the enzymes with the enzyme blockers and. IMFORMATION enhancers that essentially the new the mucosal lining so. that. those those. Attempts have worked in very small biologic molecules to my knowledge. No one has tried delivering therapeutic antibodies with this approach and right after that will work well. Ronnie has taken. A mind-bending approach to the problem it's it's really fascinating to me as an approach to to problem solving it in the TAC. You've taken in developing the Ronnie Pill. What is the Ronnie Pill? Could. Let me start with the premise that. Led to this the asked a very simple question I. Ask. Why can't we have a pill? That goes into the intestine. and delivers a pain-free injection. and that was a that was the question I started with. And that question it has taken several years to answer that question. And we have. Great data so the a premise was. Created capsule. That is a like a tiny robot. Very low cost. And arrived the stomach acid. Goes into the casten and then. Transformed seven when injection delivers an injection in intestinal war. And The intentional water doesn't have the sharp pain receptors that we have in our skin, so the injection is pain pre.
Supreme Court rules Trump administration improperly ended program for "Dreamers"
"That's the sound of people celebrating in front of the Supreme Court last Thursday after the supreme. Court ruled that the trump administration had acted unlawfully when it tried to rescind DACA, the deferred action for childhood arrivals program designed to protect people known as dreamers. From a moral standpoint, this is a tremendously gratifying decision. Dreamers about the most sympathetic people you could imagine, and the fact that the trump administration sought their deportation was again from a moral standpoint horrendous. That, said the supreme. Court's decision was itself surprising on the law. The decision was written by chief. Justice John Roberts who is ordinarily a staunch conservative. And as the fact that it was a five to four decision shows, there were grounds that a conservative justice like Roberts could have used. Had He wanted to decide that? What Barack Obama put in place namely the DACA program Donald Trump could remove indeed. Roberts typically has a rather expensive conception of executive power, and although we can know with one hundred percents certainty I would say ninety nine percent probability that several years ago Roberts was one of the justices who voted to strike down an Obama program that was similar to Dhaka aimed at parents. So what was going on here? Why did chief justice? John Roberts choose to leave his conservative. And join the Liberals to keep Daca in place. Sometimes when Roberts issues, apparently liberal decision, it's clear that what he's doing is trying to preserve the appearance of legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Voiding scenario where the public would think of the justices as basically partisan. Roberts understands that the public knows that the Supreme Court justices have different ideologies. What he doesn't want is for the public to think that the justices vote based on the party of the person who appointed that. That may explain Roberts's vote not to entirely strike down obamacare. The affordable care act some years ago. In the case. However Roberts's motivation seems to have been somewhat different. What seems to be motivating, Roberts is a kind of disrespect for the Donald Trump administration's unwillingness to cross. It's t's dots is and follow the rule of law when it comes to issuing important governmental decisions. We saw this a year ago when Roberts also provided the decisive fifth vote to reverse the trump administration's plan to put a citizenship question on the twenty twenty census. Census in that case, as in the DACA case Roberts relied on a law called the administrative precede. ACT, which is the law that gives a federal courts, the authority to oversee and review decisions of administrative bodies in order to determine whether they complied with the procedures that the law demands in particular. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that the government give clear honest and. Justify and reasons for why it's doing what it's doing. And both the census case and the DACA case. Roberts ruled that the government had failed to provide those justifications in essence. Roberts was saying taking the action in question was within the General Authority of the executive branch, but the executive branch didn't do a good enough job of explaining why it did what it did. This kind of judicial supervision of governmental action is crucial to preserving the rule of law, and it's pretty clear that John Roberts no longer trusts the trump administration to do that to be sure at the beginning of the trump administration roberts was willing to give trump the benefit of the doubt. He after all wrote the opinion in the trump against Hawaii case, the one involving the Muslim travel ban in which he upheld the presence authority to issue the version of the travel ban that was in play the time. What seems to have happened subsequently is that has Roberts has gotten a closer and closer look at trump's disrespect for the courts and his disrespect for the rule of law. He's decided to take on the role of defending judiciary defending the rule of law, and if making trump comply. And it may not be a relevant. That Roberts, also had to spend a good chunk of his January sitting in the Senate, listening to the impeachment managers condemnation of Donald, trump, precisely for his disrespect for the rule of law, so if you're wondering whether John Roberts has suddenly become a liberal. Take it from me. He has not I expect more conservative decisions from him possibly even this week or next but John. Roberts has taken up the responsibility of the judiciary to keep an eye on this president. And for that I think everybody liberal or Conservative should be profoundly grateful.

From The City To The Megalopolis
"It's amazing to think that. In the nineteenth century about three percent of humanity lived in cities and today. That number is fifty percent, and it's growing rapidly. We live in the age of the Megalopolis. We're going to talk about that now with Dr, Salvatori satis Dr set. This is an emeritus professor of the history of classical art and archaeology at the school normality superiore in Pisa in Italy. He's an archaeologist and art historian. He's the chairman of the Louvre Museum. Scientific Council his the author of several books on art. Art History and he's known as the conscience of Italy for his role in spot, leading the neglect of it all national cultural heritage. His book is if Venice dies, and it's a look, not only at in the struggles, Venison the twenty first century, but at the increasing urbanisation of civilization general doctor says thanks for joining us. Thank you for inviting me. Can you talk about if finished is? How much of it is about Venice? And how much of it is it about the changing urban landscape across the planet? Well my intention in writing. This book was to focus on Venice. In order to make people meditate about what's going on on on a global scale about what I would call the shape the form of the city Savannah's. Sample account that example, contrasting some of the most disturbing. Of Urbanization in our current world end, it is quite dramatic. What's going on in your book? You explain there are fifteen megalopolis. That have over twenty million people is the advent of these massive cities twenty million people cities people have to live somewhere is is that a good thing or a bad thing? Why does it concern you well? I'm concerned about the quality of life. Those people because although this organization may look something that happens naturally, it is also prompted by economic forces. It is a concentration of workforce. which is not necessarily living in good conditions in order to create profit for a very low number of people, so it's the usual formula ninety nine percent, the best one percent, the megalopolis is a consequence of a complication of the world, the general commodification of the world that includes to an increasing extent human beings. This is just a very efficient thing for the elites to have a concentration of workforce where people who will be able to work cheaper and produce more by being right there at the center of production. Is that what? What you're saying, produce more and also by more become consumers, because workers are simultaneously consumer, so there is a a bishop's or two, if you so wish seal between being workers and consumers and I, think that there are two your which are combined, and normally one is made. Opera is the big over-centralisation to the other one is the verticalisation of AF- architecture. May Boca Use a? It's an example Chung Ching in China which had the six hundred thousand people in the nineteen thirty s and now thirty four million people living in it. I talked to contrast this with a different. Format Orbis or shape of the city. A form of the city in which that is some sort of harmony of balance between the body of the citizen and the body of the city where the citizen doesn't feel The one thing I'm saying is that it is good that we presser diversity in urban form and preserving diversity means among other things saving and saving the other historical see also because there is in even more. More disturbing feature of urban farming cities taking shape in in our time, and that is the fact that wide ancient cities. Historical CDs had a boundary around the city in the case of Venice Lagoon, case of other cities, the walls around the city now the boundaries around the boundaries of the city are being gradually substituted by boundaries within the city which has boundaries between the gentrified areas. For. The Hey and the have nots. You can see that in Paris very well. This can impact is. Also in Rome or in Milan dimension, Italian cities, the gated communities are increasingly frequent all around the world, but the gated communities are for those who are wealthy or relatively wealthy, while the other people are condemned to live in favelas. Zeal or in in be don't be like this aim French. I'm just thinking of Paris. I was just in Paris with a group. And I was explaining how they protect the center of Paris where everything is the months heart, scale you know six or eight story tall monster building, so you can see the domes, and you can see the spires, and you can see the Eiffel Tower and then right when you get to the periphery. Periphery this big boulevard that circles the city outside of that. It's just no-holds-barred, and it's like keeping the Cadillac Bay outside of that periphery. It's forced of skyscrapers within that you've got the elegance of the classic people friendly city that is in a sense, a gated community, because it's unaffordable for lot of people, and they end up outside a town in the rougher downtrodden neighborhoods. This is what's going on. Your description is absolutely perfect I think. But this involves a separation with inside, which is socially potentially very dangerous for the future. which is not precisely what I would call democracy.
Food Fight: Is it more ethical to eat meat if you kill the animal?
"Hunting may seem like an unexpected pastime for Iowa resident Rachel Vander F-. I did not grow up. Hunting I was not at all involved in hunting world. An environmental consultant. She was Vegan for a while because of animal welfare and sustainability concerns, but vandor were missed eating meat so obtained in a way she feels as ethical. She decided to try hunting and after her first deer hunt, she was hooked. Really. That was the first time that I felt like I was part of nature and part of the food system. How she's gotten more involved, she's realized that hunting can inspire people to protect wildlife habitat. She says hunters often lead land conservation efforts interstate. Iowa has lust ninety nine percent of its native prairie and wetlands, and it's really important to conserve what we have left so today. A group called at a below doors. It offers classes on hunting, fishing and foraging. She hopes these practices helped. People feel more connected to nature. The more people are out enjoying our land the more likely that they're going to be invested in wanting it to be conserved.
Warner Music Group prices IPO at $25 a share to raise $1.925 billion
"That time now for our stock of the hour it is Warner Music Group which went public earlier today it's been held off for a day or so it's gone public and then the price is actually gone up since it started trading we are joined now by kill whites to take us through the Warner story yeah David started trading just over half an hour ago right now the stock up the better part of six percent trading around twenty eight sixty one a share that's after it priced at twenty five dollars this morning the midpoint of the marketing range raised about it one billion one point nine three billion excuse me in the listing which which I should point out I was actually up size seventy seven million shares up from just seventy million makes it one of the biggest offerings we've seen so far in twenty twenty and values the company at nearly thirteen billion dollars of course even as you alluded to this was delayed from yesterday to observe the music industry's blackout Tuesday to support the protest against police brutality in fact it was really delayed about three months because of the pandemic so the fact that the company now has come public we're seeing it being taken pretty well by the public markets sends a pretty positive signal about potentially renewed strength of the U. S. offerings after we saw those really put on pause for a while because of this pandemic David yeah exactly I wonder whether it says more about the history of the equity market which is really on its way back with that says more about the state of the music market is the music market sort of stay at home kind of business well it's a little bit of both isn't right we've seen obviously increased demand for risk on the part of investors and it's not just a big week for Warner music we're about to see six point four billion dollars in IPOs total this week some definitely revival of companies coming to the public markets but on your point about the music industry of course is really is a lot about streaming Warner music especially is very catered towards streaming about seventy percent of its revenue comes from digital sales Spotify apple for example account for about twenty seven percent of revenue be looking at the last fiscal year in fact that is everybody is home bound we can't go out to concerts etcetera to get entertainment lately is giving an added boost to Warner music here yeah let's be honest Kaylee I've downloaded more music club and stuck at home that you have to do so maybe it's Happy Days are here again for the music business which let's be honest has really gone up and down down initially string was not too good for it yeah absolutely there's been a lot of back and forth for certain and not only is this good for the music business I would point out to you that the man who really is making all the money from this IPO land blah blah Finnick excuse me I'm totally butchering that name you do a far better job job but he actually is getting eighty five percent of economic interest in this ninety nine percent of the voting right is basically all of the proceeds from this IPO are not going to Warner music they're going to
The Seven Roles of Photography
"Let's start today with an obvious given. We all have cameras. We all take pictures but the question I WANNA ask today is why and there's one simple answer that probably accounts for ninety nine percent of what we do photographic -ly we make pictures because it's fun and it's entertaining and we enjoy it and we don't need any more excuses than that and so the rest of this podcast can be forgotten except for the fact that some of us. WanNa do something more with our photography. The just have fun. Some of US WANNA do something more with our photography than just capture memories. That is to say we're interested in using photography something beyond the snapshot and when that happens now. I think it may be more interesting to ask why. What is the purpose of making our artwork? We'll part of the reason to be an artist. Is that things. Like photography gives us a way to approach the world almost an excuse to approach the world as I've said for years. A camera is a fantastic. Excuse for going out and exploring and people will give permission to go places and see things that you wouldn't have if he just said. I'm curious and I WANNA go see it but if you say I want to take picture of it. Sometimes that opens doors and so a camera can be a handy tool for us to use in life as an excuse to go out exploring okay fine but that still doesn't give us a reason why we wanNA create artwork from the photographs that we capture with our cameras. Why do we WANNA make prints in math and frame them and put them on the wall or publish them or make folios chat or whatever? What is it that motivates us? What is our purpose for creating artwork for reasons? I can't explain it other than the fact photography's my life. I find this a fascinating question and so I spent considerable time in the last no sixty days or so thinking about this more critically trying to figure out. What is the purpose for being an art photographer other than fun? And an excuse to explore the world essentially what I came up with. This is just my own little brainstorm so I'm not pretending like this inclusive or exhaustive of all possibilities. But here's what my brain thought that. There are basically seven roles of photography and by that I mean things that we do with photography not rules Phil The seven roles of photography that is to say there are seven purposes of fine art photography that I find help clarify my thinking about what it is that I'm doing once. I had sort of concluded this brainstorm I applied retrospectively and I discovered that it was pretty useful. Sometimes I could use these seven ideas to clarify a project that I wasn't quite sure what I was doing. And where it was going and what the next step was etc how to conclude it or even how to make final decisions about editing and sequencing but once I had these seven roles of photography in mind I found I could go back and use this to clarify my thinking so that was a reason to explore why we make our work. The other thing is it tells me what the limits of my thinking our because I have no doubt there are more than seven ideas. That should be on this list but for some reason. I can only think of seven roles of photography. I'll get into them in here. Just a second but I can only think of seven which tells me the limits of my thinking and as a matter of fact when I went back and looked at the well at this point I have a hundred thirty seven small projects that have been published in cocoa and all hundred and thirty seven of them fit with one of these seven definitions of the roles of photography and not a single one was outside of this. So that tells me I need to push the envelope a little bit. Because they're probably some things that I missing that I've become so entrenched in my thinking that I need to expand so with that in mind. Let me share with you. What I am characterizing. As the seven roles of photography these are things. We want our fine art photography to do the purpose for making what we make and why we make it. The first is to take me there that is to say camera as transporter through space and time the classic examples of this are probably ansel. Adams in contemporary photographer Art Wolf. I'll use him as an example and there are lots and lots of others but the essence of this kind of photography is for us as viewers to go someplace through space and time to a place that we have not been or cannot go and see the world through the eyes of the photographer no question. That's probably the dominant use of photography in terms of fine art photography or as far as that goes with snapshots snapshots take us back in time to an event that happened so that we can remember it more clearly the snapshots that we make vacation pictures can take us to a place that we're not currently at but maybe we visited on vacation and we want to remember it and reminisce about it and so take me. There is the first and most dominant role of photography and lots and lots of projects fit that

Netflix's already pre install on it or if you could buy a Roku already got netflix on their more comcast box you may or may not get it but if it does get loaded somehow. Netflix's getting on all these devices. How does that happen? What happens is there's a team at net flicks that makes the Netflix's player code and we package it up once a year and we call it the de k a software developers kit for the player and we might give it a name but every year we give it out to these partners in these partners are like Samsung L. G. Roku comcast of the world and they have to take it and make it work on their system. And so if you look at all the TV's out there and all the set top boxes you can see that you know they're different chipsets. There's different hardware. They probably have different compilers and compilers settings. They've God's maybe their own libraries that they have to do they have a different os on their TV. Every device out there. Basically a custom made device. And so how do you get those Netflix's player which looks pretty much the same once you start the APP whether it's on a Roku or a Samsung Smart TV or a cable set top box? How is it ended up at experiences? Pretty much universal. I would say in how that happens is there are other teams that work with these partners to make sure that AAA compiles and be that. It's good that doesn't crash We have a suite of tasks and Trevan helps with that that area. The part and my previous manager job was in area too. We don't let net Netflix. Go out or be sold or pre installed on and device unless we know that device is going to have good quality with it. I said it cheers. Cheers cheers cheers and how that happens. Is these partners. Have to run a whole bunch of tests and pass these tests and there's a a Cloud-based tests service that Netflix's made where they can take their device whether they're working in China or whether they're working in Japan or Korea or the US or anywhere in the world they plug it into Internet. They log into this cloud service and they can run tests and we can see these tests if they pass fail and so on so forth and was passed all these tests then it goes out into the field and people can buy them what people have them in their homes or they sign up for cable service and they get this box and they start net flakes. And if it's working great we can see the metrics remotely from here 'cause all these boxes and TV's are sending this logs all the time and if there's a problem we should be able to detect that and try to get it fixed so long story. Short Netflix's works with a whole bunch of other companies to get these apps working and what's out there are jobs not done. We have to make sure that it keeps working. And so that's where he may be a deluded to like. Qe which maybe you could explain. What the Kiwi Patrick. Is that your your teams looking at sure. So Kua we. Quality of experience cheers. Cheers kind of set. You up for that one. They are metrics that deal with how the APP appears to the user. So this would be. Things like is video smooth. Does it look like high. Bit Rate. So it looks like very high quality not just st but also hd for K. buffering a lot. Which hopefully it's not a re buffer is when you're watching in the middle of playback and there's this kind of spinner that appears on the screen where it's trying to load and it's ten percent twenty percent. Seventy five percent. Ninety nine percent starts playing again. It's probably because there's some interference on the network or there's a bug in the buffering on the device we want to keep all that buffering to a minimum so that when you start watching it smooth. There's no interruptions but it's not just limited to that if you have trouble starting the APP or if you're in the middle of the APP crashes or there's like network fluctuations where it goes high quality low quality too much on. These are all things that could be addressed usually on the device side and try to minimize those as much as possible wherever possible. Even things outside of the network that users network or the service provider's network lately. Yeah that's another one. I forgot about that one. The time it takes for you to press the button versus how long it takes to start the actual playback. Hopefully it's around four or five seconds but on some devices we see. It's as long as twenty seconds thirty seconds. That's something that could be fixed on a device. Hopefully I think that's always been something that I've actually been amazed at is just Michael. You paint the picture of the ecosystem of all the different TV devices. But when I think about it too is the Netflix. App is being built for something like a roku stick. It's a lower powered device. And then you have something lake the playstation four or Xbox at you can also play on. It has a lot bigger assessor. I think is really interesting. How you there's large ecosystem of devices that we are supporting and so I can imagine that becomes a lot more challenging in your world to to support all those different variables are those devices and especially when you think that every one of those devices basically a custom made device very few devices. Look or act exactly the same from the code perspective and so it's it's a challenge to make sure that when you start Netflix's whether on a fifteen dollars stick if you bought it on sale the way up to four hundred dollars playstation or even a three thousand dollar four K. SMART TV that the Netflix's experience is pretty universal. On all of them. You still log in the same. You still have your same catalog. He still are able to see and navigate through the you. I pretty much the same. It's pretty familiar despite that range and I think that's pretty

Y I have been doing previously so it's busy accession that regards instead of having to try to put a square peg in around how we have around. Paul Hall Ricotta Mike. It Nice and council as guess you're dealing with non technical people and sometimes the last thing they wanna do they have to learn a new system right and no matter. How Arcane their system is they probably know it is. There's right and the idea of switch into something else without that service is scary and I'm happy it was one of those ones where high chows not very happy people fear performance management.

Democracy Cant Thrive in Chaos
"Jane Fonda was arrested five times for environmental protest outside the Capitol this fall. She accepted a BAFTA film award while being taken into custody and photographs. The actor cast a striking figure in handcuffs in red will coat. It's a color fitting for the protests which are inspired by global school strikes and called Fire Drill. Fridays fresh from her arrest streak. The activists joined environmental justice campaigner and community organizer. Peggy Shepherd to record a live episode of Dare. I say in partnership with AMEX AT SAKS fifth avenue in New York City Peggy has been at the forefront of the Environmental Justice Movement in the US for a long time. She founded nonprofit organization. We Act for Environmental Justice in North Manhattan in the eighties. It helped low income New Yorkers in particular communities of color fight harmful environmental policies. It now fights for better environmental and health policies on a local and national level in the I live recorded episode of Dare. I say peggy and Jane discussed civil disobedience the green new deal resilience and why it is important for women to lead the climate conversation. How can we remedy empathy crisis? That has hurt generations of Americans. Why is the cult of rugged individualism driving climate disaster? What can older generations learned from teenagers at the decades on the frontlines? Peggy and Jane Have Not Stop Fighting. They are women who dare. Hi You know. We have a lot in common where activists arrested. But why have you decided to be arrested and to be active at this moment in time over Labor Day weekend? I felt great malaise because I drive an electric car and I do away with single use plastics and I make all those right personal lifestyle choices but I knew that they're not going to be able to scale up in time to get us where we need to be is a good place to start but it's no place to stop and so. I read a book by Klein that talked about a green new deal and talked about gratitude and it inspired me to get out of my comfort zone as Greta says we have to do and not behave business as usual as you know better than a lot of people. We have decades many decades more than forty years writing speeches and books and getting the word out about the science. What the science says. And we've marched and we've rallied and we've played nice and it hasn't worked enough and we only have eleven years left and so we have to up the stakes and I think we have to mobilize and go into the streets and put our bodies on the line and engage in civil disobedience and risk getting arrested. I don't WANNA BE ARRESTED. But you know you have to be willing to risk it so I went. I moved to DC for four months to win gaijin fired real Fridays because Fridays is the day that Greta and the student climate strikers have chosen to strike for climate so I want to support them and helpless their message teenagers today were born more than a decade after NASA scientists warned Congress about climate change in nineteen eighty eight. James Hansen told lawmakers at the time that he was ninety nine percent sure that human activity was causing temperatures to rise. Teenagers today have inherited the climate crisis. They have grown up. In a world of apocalyptic headlines and increasingly volatile weather. It's no surprise that they are extremely intelligent educated and now taking to the streets sweetest teenager. Greta Tonsberg inspired a wave of student protests across the world when she skipped school to strike outside of her country's parliament. And so how do you feel that? We really can motivate young people and youth to really be the strong activists that they need because they are going to inherit this climate this globe right now. What I'm feeling is I don't need to motivate them. They're motivating me. They're the ones because they see that we've taken their future not we. The fossil fuel industry has is robbing them of the future and we can't let them shoulder this burden by themselves. So Granny's unite. Older people have to get out there and and we have to stand along side them. This is a collective crisis that's going to require a collective solution that means all of us together because it is a stomach and we know that we can each take the issues that we need. Whether it's changing light bulbs whether it's recycling. We know that we can do all of those things. But we know that it's systemic and that we gotta come together collectively to educate our elected officials and to pressure the policymakers to really pass the kind of legislation that we all need. But we know that we can't do that with the message. Simply reducing carpet or a message. Simple energy efficiency. We've got a really embraced the values that appeal to all of our communities because Oliver Communities are not whole. They're not healthy. We know that millions of people in this country are living with bad air. They don't have clean water and they are disproportionately impacted by pollution and the Environmental Justice Movement has really for the last thirty years were to achieve environmental protection for all communities and we know also that when we talk about climate change and you hear people talk about climate justice. Climate Justice is not just a cool phrase. It's really a term that is focused on the most vulnerable communities. And how we've got to take action to ensure that the most vulnerable are protected because when that happens we're all protected and so we've got agreement deal and we know that that's been an important framework that's been proposed and it's wonderful that she was not prescriptive. Afc and the others who have talked about this framework we know that it has motivated sectors of of our country to get together and fill in the blanks. What they think is a green new deal what they need for their communities and for their lives and that's been a very important motivator. I think in this moment for a long time. There's been this rap that the environmental movement is white and elite. I think even Obama kind of felt that way but my experience is that that is not the case and then in fact people of color who live in the frontline communities have been very much at the forefront of the environmental movement and are the bravest strongest voices. It's a stereotype that people of color don't really care about the environment. Because they're really concerned with with jobs and food and of course we're all concerned with that but what? I've found predominantly above ninety sixth street when we have monthly membership meetings. It's not the more fluent Brown's donors who are coming out on these sites. It's people from public housing. We get so many calls about air pollution coming into their apartments about odors and emissions from trucks cars buses. We have worker training program for under employed young men and we invited them to come to our membership meetings to hear about issues of climate change or toxins in and chemicals cosmetics and they were able to understand the issue they were able for the probably the first time in their lives to talk to an elected official and tell them what they felt in what they needed and so it's about support. People know what they need. They just need some support to be able to advocate and to be able to. Maybe have a place to come and use computer. Have a place to come and ask some key questions. Let me just tell you that the upcoming mayoral public housing tenants are going to be a major factor in who gets elected and we're going to be organizing them and there's coalitions all over the city to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people are the ones who are going to be part of the solution and so I would simply say that the most vulnerable when we address them we lift all boats. It's not about trickle down. It's about lifting everyone up together and that's what creates an equitable and just society.
Why Do Pistachios' Color Depend on the Iran Hostage Crisis?
"Are tasty seed the grow on trees and have cream colored shells and green colored flesh a Estacio. Green is a specific queue. A soft yellowish green. That was super popular in the fall of two thousand. Nineteen in Pentagon's catalog. It's thirteen dash zero two to one but there was a time when the stash IOS that Americans eight were almost all died red cedar and Shell so vibrant read that it would stain your fingers so why were stashes died in the first place. And why aren't read pistachios around anymore? It all starts at the Syrian stash importer by the name of Sullom who supposedly died his stashes read to differentiate his product from that of his competitors and to hide any minor imperfections from harvesting. The pistachio is believed to be indigenous to the Middle East specifically Iran and has been widely cultivated from Afghanistan to the Mediterranean region and more recently in California where it was introduced in eighteen fifty four as a garden. Trie we spoke with Persian chef and writer Nashashibi up among leauge. She explained four Iranians and Turks Stash. Here's play an important role in their culture in cuisine for them stash. Here's our everyday snacks roasted salted and sometimes lime juice. There are Stachel cookies flavored with rosewater in cardamom. Mustaches lamb braised with rose water and Saffron Stachel meatballs cooked in pomegranate juice etc up until the nineteen seventies. The majority of America's mustaches came from abroad. Most hailing from Iran looms method of using his red dye to make his not standout eventually became the identifying mark of Middle Eastern Stash IOS. Then in nineteen seventy nine can the Iranian hostage crisis in which fifty two American diplomats and citizens were held hostage in Iran for four hundred and forty four days. Tensions between the two nations were extremely high during this time at deeply affecting how the United States viewed Iran and also undermining Jimmy Carter's conduct a foreign policy. Carter did what any president in a tight spot would do and imposed a number of sanctions on Iran. Just after the crisis began Carter began by cutting off sales of Iranian oil and freeing all Iranian assets on April seventh nineteen eighty frustrated by the ineffectual outcome of the sanctions. Carter announced he would be taking drastic measures by cutting off diplomatic ties with Iran and embargoing all imports from the Middle Eastern country. His embargo against Iranian imports resulted in what was essentially an embargo on the area's vibrant red pistachios. Leaving the fingers of Stachel loving Americans everywhere. Their normal hugh. So where do America's stashes come from? Now California grows about ninety eight percent of statue sold in the US using an automated process that ensures little to no colorful imperfections on the Shell California produced around four point. Five million pounds of pistachios in nineteen seventy seven. A number that grew by twenty times only twenty years later now. California is home to ninety nine percent of the nation's pistachio orchards. Making it three point. Six billion dollar industry coming in second and third are Arizona and New Mexico with an economic impact thirteen million and three point one million respectively. These nuts are all their natural green but relics of red pistachios do still exist for example in a scene in the film the naked gun in which the characters mouths are dyed red by eating nuts and in some people's nostalgic memories.
