"I saw a nice little whitetail buck across the road, not very far from me. He probably had two and a half year old. And then a little bit later. I saw a nice, pretty decent mule deer buck, about a mile from that one. So you got this mix of mule deer and white tail right in here. Not seen any Elk right now. We'll see. I'm gonna go out hunt him a little bit and see what happens there. It is a grand time. I do love this time of year. We did go into camp. We got Brad his buck shot hit at 407 yards on the laser with his two 57 weatherby. One shot and done. That work tried to get out of camp. Ran there's some bad weather had to turn around and come back. I spent the night there 5° or so. Three sleeping bags and a heater in the tent and worked his spine. Man, am I a big fan of and oh by the way, we're using what was at the mister buddy heaters, their catalytic converter or catalytic heaters. We're running, I was running on actually two of us were running carbon monoxide detectors in the tents, and we got zero reading. None. So I was concerned about that, but that made me feel pretty good. So I just kind of a heads up for winter camping if you've got a heater in your tent to be at least aware and alert to that. That can be quite dangerous. So yeah, I like the two 57s. I like the Roberts. I got 25.6, like, you know, all those. The reality is none of it really matters. I mean, we can argue about it and it's fun to yammer. This way or that way, two 84, 7 mag 300 blah, blah, blah. Whatever. Can you shoot? Are you using good ammo? That's it. Can you shoot in are you using good ammo? Good ammo is easy. You can buy good ammo every word. Use good bullets. Can you shoot us a different deal? And I'm sorry, you can't purchase that. You have to do the work on that. And by shoot, I mean, get off the bench. I was going to add an adjective in there. Get off the bench, which side of the end, you don't ever need to shoot you on the bench again. What's the point? What are you doing? Trying to shoot a little bug shaped groups and many groups. Why? If you're talking about hunting, that is. You need to be shooting from a standing position. Yes, offhand. I don't know what your limit would be, but you should be capable of hitting a deer consistently offhand. You need to work on that. You should be able to shoot, I don't know, 200 yards plus from a seating position, shoot opportunity sticks, shoot off bypass sheet off your backpack, get your backpack, take it with you to the range, get down on the ground. Flop over. If they don't allow that there, then go somewhere else, or the very least work on dry firing. Or you know what you can do if you can't shoot your big game rifle doing that. Get your 22. Do you all your practice with that? If that's not available till you get you an adult air gun and put like a gazillion trillion rounds through your adult air gun, they have good triggers. They have the feel of a regular rifle now. And there's just no substitute for trigger time for pulling the trigger and making good shots. If you put 5000 rounds through your air gun between now and next season, you will be a considerably better shot. You will have more confidence. You're going to be able to hit that deer or Elk or antelope or whatever it is at a distance. It's beyond what you can do now. Now I'm not talking about 800,000 yard shots. I am not a fan of those. I really don't even got to say it's not my place to approve or disapprove anything, but I just don't like them. They leave chance way too much out there. But 304 105 hundred, whatever your distance is. There's just no substitute for putting in the time. Anyone can come back, I want to talk about some cool sales that are going on. Ammo, unbelievable deals right now. And gun kits we'll be talking about that. You can join us 8 6 6 talk gun. Don't talk I'll be right back.

"Oh, goodness. I can not remember the square footage, but it's pretty big. It's going to be the art. And hiring a bunch of people and getting geared up. Of course, as with all construction, we always say, you know, we're 90% there and only have 50% more to go. Exactly. It's always the one that's not the truth, though. It certainly is. People want to look at that by Norman ammunition. You can find it. You've got home defense ammo, you've got dedicated hunting ammo. You got precision competition ammo. And also, you're alluded to the components, Norma brass has always been considered right up there is the finest brass in the world for reloaders. And one of the questions is that I have is, is that going to be more available? Because it seems like all the brass ends up going into loaded ammo. Yeah, so that's always the catch 22. We are we want to balance both our reloading capabilities as well as making sure we have the brass to load finished cartridges. So as far as I know, so that isn't under technically my umbrella of expertise. But as far as I know, we will be continuing that and keeping it readily available. I think people are going to need to do is to learn more about the line. I'm looking at some of the bullets you have, names that people may not be as familiar with in the U.S. like Norma Bond strike we talk about some really some high BC bullets made for hunting, obviously a lot of good hunting ammo where you're loading like the woodley bullets, things that more well known throughout the world, but maybe less so in the U.S.. Does that sound right? That is correct. Definitely. And we have a great team that speaks on that goes out and talks to dealers all over to speak on the quality and try to spread that word a lot more of their brand awareness and getting it out there. I actually was recently out of show when I talked to a gentleman and he's like, I will literally go to ranges and see if I can find Norma brass wing around. That people aren't aware that they're shot it. And I was like, oh, that's fun. Oh yeah, yeah, that's like finding gold on the ground. Exactly. Exactly. Well, it's just, I mean, the fact that you're now part of the beretta family, that is going to be terrific in terms of marking awareness, getting the word out and also just collaborating on product development and what the market is looking for. Oh, yeah. That's what I'm the most excited about. There's so many great opportunities coming up. So we're very close online, which is the best landing site for people to go if they want to look up more about Norma. You can go to Norma, U.S., I'm sorry. Norma USA dot com. Let me just normal shooting dot com. Enormous shooting dot com. Okay. There it is, Norma shooting dot com. God, there it is. Now we can find everything that's there. Very good. I hope you get the feeling better. I appreciate you gutted it out. You did the interview because if we weren't sure we were going to be able to make it happen. And look, do me a favor if you would. I know you're going to have a lot of things happening and new things going on with Norma. As those happen and you have things to talk about, let me know, we'll get you back on an update everybody. That would be wonderful. I love that. Michelle Owens, thank you so much. Thank you. Have

"Sports. We like the honey. We like the competition. We're like, going to the range and shooting in the of course, yes, yes, yes. For a lot of us, it's part of who we are in terms of taking care of ourselves and providing safety for ourselves and for our families. We take that seriously as well, taking training classes, carrying guns for self defense, and working really hard to avoid having to ever use that to need that. And that's part of the package as well. We can talk about that. If you want to join us on the air, if you have a question, you have a comment, or you have what we often call range reports. You've been out doing little shooting, you bought a new gun, you did some hunting. You used to have a story you want to share. Oh, that's wonderful. Just give me a call 8 6 6 talk gun or call me at Tom talk gun. That's me, Tom. We can chat. A lot of things going on. Oh, oh. Remember what was a week or two ago? When I said I had recorded this interview with this professor who had done research and part of this group the 97% that says, you know, we can all can't we all just agree on guns and most gun owners really do want more gun control laws. And I said, you know, I got right up to the end of it and said, I'm not going to run that interview. Everything about it feels wrong. Well, coming up a little bit later today, I'll tell you, got confirmation on that. Talk about following your instincts. Holy cow. What a mess. Why would I did swore hunting went out and we kind of, well, everybody in our hunting party now filled their tags. I spent all day yesterday cutting up my deer. It's in the freezer now. That's a lot of fun. I always like doing that myself. So a lot of things going on, so if you want to talk honey, we can do that as well. And of course, you can't talk about hunting. You can't talk about shooting, you can't really talk about using your guns at all without talking about yes. You got to have something to feed the beast, right? And joining me to talk about some really good ammo, is Michelle Owen, she is with Norma, the ammunition company. Michelle, thank you for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. Did I interrupt your shooting? I know you didn't, not today. Normally, I would have had a class going on today, but I've been under the weather. Everything for today. So what kind of classes do you teach? What do you do? I do just basic self defense. Courses, basic firearms and defense courses in situational awareness. What have you seen in terms of any changes or increase in interest? Anything going on in that world of people warning self defense training? Oh my goodness. It is intense how many people are interested. In fact, I did teach a course last night, but that was more just the speaking course. For situational awareness and the ladies that I spoke to none of them have ever taken any firearms courses any self defense courses or really heard much about anything that's going on and they just am all were just intrigued and to learning more about taking their protection into their own hands, which I found very, very, very comforting. Just we live in a crazy world. And I know you talk to them, I'm sure you asked them why. Why are you here? What do you hear back? Yeah, so basically because of what's going on in the world right now. There's just been so many abductions occurring a lot of people just feeling uncomfortable just basically walking out of their houses. The stories that are coming out via an unfortunately, I have to say, social media on the news on a daily basis. Just so many people feeling like they can't rely on traditional means to take care of themselves. They need to really take their own protection into their hands. So I think that's probably a smart move. Whether or not the threat is real, because I know that I think you would agree. If you are paying attention to social media all the time and paying attention to the news, you kind of get a feeling that it's happening right around you when you're actually looking at a national stories that scattered all over the place, but even having said all of that, it just makes sense to say, I'm going to take care of myself. I'll be my own first responder. Exactly. Exactly. And I just really do love hearing these ladies stories and some of them have some pretty amazing stories where they have encountered some pretty bad situations. And some of them have never, they just think they live in a PT world, which I would love to live that way, but it is great to have that just that understanding that there are threats out there. And just being prepared for them is really important. Well, let's switch over it. How long have you been with Norma now? I've only been with Norma since June, so I started June 1st. And yeah, just drove right in. Yeah, I guess enormous been around since I've been looking it up here since 1902, been making ammo for a 120 years. Can you give us just a little background? Yes, so we are well known company for mostly hunting and precision ammunition. We started back here in the United States, manufacturing, and then the United States, I believe it was about 5 years ago. I want to say, I could be a little bit off on my time frame here. Again, I'm kind of new. So we were under the rug umbrella. Back in Europe and recently got purchased by the beretta holding. Company. So we are under beretta holding as of August, which has been just an amazing switchover for us. So we started manufacturing more ammunition here in the Savannah area, and we have a great facility in about to build an even nicer one. Okay, that starts to make sense. Because I've been watching in on store shelves of the last two months, three months, it just seems like there's Norma ammo everywhere and with two years ago it would have been like seeing a unicorn to see Norma ammo on the shelves. Yeah, see, we're definitely trying to get that out there as much as possible spreading the word because we are known for precision. We are known for our quality and our quality at our brass, the reloading for us, et cetera. We very well known in the world, but we need to we were trying to spread our wings a bit more here in the U.S.. It is a world brand. That's right. That's right. So okay, so you're making more ammo now and then you alluded to making a lot more and I saw a story, you're going to be building a new plant. We are, I'm very, very, very excited. We just signed the intent to build. We had Petro beretta, doctor Petro S baretta down here to find to build and that hopefully, no, I'm not don't mark my words on this, but hopefully we'll be breaking down the ground in the next at the end of Q one next year. Is that in Georgia? Where is that? Yeah, it's in Savannah. Just right outside of Savannah. Okay. How big a place are we talking?

"Absolutely. Interesting. So okay, so what are the hot lines are the things you guys are doing that you'd like to tell people about? So a couple of things that I'm really excited about. I'm an American, right? I'm a blue blooded American tried and true. And I'm really excited about the move that we've made as a business over the last two years to really start moving into self defense and personal defense handgun. And we've started to look at kind of non traditional alternative manufacturing practices and materials. So we've got two product lines right now that are new to normal new to the U.S.. One is the MHP, which is a monolithic copper and it's unique because it's not a machine's bullet or turn it will look like all the others. It's actually cold formed. So in that manufacturing process, we can kind of pre imprint the expansion we want to see in the projectile during manufacturing and then just form it back up around. So you don't have to hope for consistent performance. You can kind of ingrain it in there with the DNA, right? So that's a product line that I would tell people. That are serious about self defense. You should really look at the MHP. And that stands for monolithic hollow point, right? So you're actually building in the expansion properties when you make the bullet. Yeah, it's cold form. So it's a high pressure forming system without heat. And you're basically pressing in essentially what you want that projectile to do and look like during the manufacturing process and then closing it back up at the nose and forming it whenever you're going through final assembly. So instead of just turning a bullet and boring a hole in it and scoring it down the side like so many other copper manufactured bullets, you're still leaving a lot to chance at that point. Interesting. Okay, I got to get some of that and cheat it. All right, so what else are you working on? The other one that I'm really, really excited and I'm most excited about is the NHD. It's another self defense below this brand new. And the NHD is actually a non expanding defensive round, that's what NXT stands for and it uses to use this fluid dynamics and displacement to generate the cavitation that you need for energy transfer in a self defense round, but because it doesn't expand, you don't have to give up energy and deforming that bullet so you get a 100% energy transfer, you've got the external footprint of a full metal jacket round. So if you're going run ball ammo fine, it's going to run in XD 5. You don't have the feeding issues that can show up with traditional hollow point bullets. Right. And then you've got very light for caliber and we know energy is a matter of speed, generally speaking, right? Is everything when it comes to energy transfer. So you have very light for caliber very high velocity rounds that impact very, very hard. But to you, the shooter gives ultimate reliability and feeding and a very soft flat recoil impulse. With that light for the caliber, bullet weight also in the high velocity also help with these micro pistols with shorter barrels. 100% because you don't was it two reasons it helps. One, because typically the shorter the barrel, the more challenging it is for traditional deformation ammunition to do its job, right? It's harder for it to consistently expand because you're losing velocity or you're performing at a velocity window below what the ammunition was designed for optimally. So yes, that goes out the window because this round does not have to expand in order to impart its energy. It uses fluid dynamics in the hydrodynamic ram is one of the fluid dynamics that it uses and the others that have been curious effect. So you can research those two and see very quickly how this thing does what it's supposed to do without having to deform. So not having the risk of not expanding out of a micro pocket gun that's a huge check mark in my opinion. And then not having to deal with the brutal snappy recoil that you get in very light compact handguns. They get harder and harder to shoot the smaller and smaller they get. Just being light for caliber, lot softer. Wow. Okay. And now, what's the availability these days? Because it used to be, it was like finding a unicorn to try to find Norma ammo in the U.S.. Very, very available. We're actually manufacturing more and more ammunition in the United States now as well. We've got a manufacturing plant in lovely Savannah, Georgia that we're standing up at the moment. But we've always, for the last.

"Hey, welcome back to gun talk. I'm Tom Gresham. You want to be part of this. Give me a call, 8, 6, 6 talk gun. We're talking about, well, talk about new stuff all stuff, of course, always talking about politics seems that we can't get away from that. But we also just kind of like to talk about the stuff we use, going after the range of shooting, rifles, pistols, shotguns, dead matter, but you know, one thing that is common to all of that, none of it does us any good if we don't have ammo. And good ammo. And good news is amber was a lot more available now than it was even a year ago. I'm seeing ammo on the shelves. I mean, it used to be like a desert out there if you found a box of ammo, you were excited. Now we've got for the most part, we've got full shelves, a lot of places. And it's a good time to take a look at maybe some ammo may not be as familiar with. And that's okay. That means all it means is that maybe you're not familiar with it. We're joining me to talk about that in some other stuff. Daniel Cox is the VP of product portfolio at Norma ruah. Hey, Daniel, how are you, sir? I'm good, Tom. How are you? Well, first of all, let's explain to people people may know about Norma, but they probably don't may not know about rug or rua. Do you want to explain the connection to what that is? Sure. So roula is a global entity that currently owns a division known as ammo tech. And within that division, it's a European conglomerate, if you will, of several ammunition brands in Europe. So it's some of the brands people have probably heard of like Norma, RWS, gecko, there are several brands that significant market share in Europe. And normal is the most prominent here in the U.S.. Okay. And when you go to Europe, yeah, those are names you're going to hear in Norma, of course, is probably primary as you're shopping there. And people know Norma here. For those who don't know, norm has been around for a 120 years, made in Sweden, making famous reputation making really good ammo and among reloaders, Norma brass is considered about the best you could get. It's a really high quality, but at the same time, Daniel, it probably hasn't been as widely available as a lot of people would like. No, definitely not. So Norma's always had a presence ammo tech has always had a presence in the U.S.. The last four or 5 years though, there's been a change in approach and they've really got serious and they wanted to be a serious player in the U.S. market. So in the last four or 5 years, they've made a significant investment in infrastructure here in the U.S. as well as capacities in Europe to better serve the U.S. shooting market as well. When you are talking to people, they say, well, what does Norma make? And I'm looking at the website Norma dash ammunition dot com. I mean, you've got hunting ammo, rifle ammo. We've got sports competition. You sell components and also you've got handgun and self defense and those as well as of course you got your ballistic program. So you're kind of all across the board when it comes to metallics. Yeah, that's one of the major investments that's been made over the last few years as we knew that if we wanted to really be well-known and well respected in the U.S. market, we needed to be able to offer a shooter to share what they truly wanted and what they truly needed, right? You can't just play in specialty boutique ammunition. It's a great place for us to be because we're really good at that. But we wanted to expand our portfolio and offer, like you said, rimfire ammunition, full metal jacket range ammunition, frangible ammunition, match ammunition, tactical training, ammunition, anything, and everything hunting ammunition. We wanted to be a full assortment here in the U.S.. And I know you get this question all the time. It's like, okay, great. I've been shooting other ammo all my life and now this is available. Why should I consider it or what special or basically kind of what's the storyline for Norma ammo that people need to know? So if I had to distill the essence of Norma down into a quick elevator pitch, we'll call it. There's really no forgive the pun. There's no silver bullet. There's no single thing that makes Norma special. And it would be disingenuous and saying, oh, because of this one factor, that's why you should be shooting nor ammunition instead of anything else. But as you mentioned, you talked about the cases, for example. It's the sum of all parts, right? They make the best brass cases in the world. Genuinely. And they do that because they pay attention to every single detail in the manufacturing process. They analyze the meteorology. Of the brass whenever it's coming in in raw strip, right? And then we go through and form it multiple step process several different specifications for hardness and thickness all the way through the brass case body. Same thing with powder, right? You don't just buy off the shelf powder. We actually lock control and manage. And that's been one of the things it took a long time to actually improve for us is because we won't just put generally available powder in our cartridges. We own ownership stake in a piece of powder manufacturer in Europe that we use for normal rifle cartridges and very strictly controlled humidity temperature storage, everything because we want the lot today of match ammunition to shoot the same as the lot you've got from two years ago. We manufacture our primers in house. We make all of our own tooling so that we can form bullets and control it. We inspect dozens of times in the manufacturing process. So there's no one thing that makes normal specialists the fact that we treat every single step in the process with the utmost care and respect because we truly understand that your passion about your sport and we're passionate about it too. You know, it's interesting you say that because I was thinking about it as you talk I'm thinking, you know I hadn't really thought about that, but Norma makes the bullets the brass the primers and even the powder because I mean reloaders we know and love Norma powders, your controlling every aspect of it..

Janet Morana Tells Us the Truth About 'Jane Roe'

"Janet. As we were coming into the studio, you said you mentioned something that you both know a certain lady who for 49 years has been known as Janet Jane roe. Tell us who she really was and because a lot of misinformation about her attitude to abortion after the decision. So who is Jane roe? Norma mccorvey, who I could say is a personal friend of mine. I stated her home in Dallas. She stayed at my home in New York. Father Frank actually brought her into the Catholic Church. In fact, Norma mccorvey never had an abortion. What? No, never. In fact, she was taken advantage of basically. She was basically homeless. She already had two babies at a wedlock that her family, one was for adoption, her mother was raising one. And over a pizza lunch, she signed for Sarah waiting to know the dotted line. She got will help you take care of your pregnancy. She signs on the dotted line. Do you think she spent one day in court? Not one day. Never heard from Sarah really. And then the day, roe V wade's decided. Do you think your lawyer would pick up the phone and say we won Norma? You know how she found out when she opened her door that morning and picked up the Dallas morning paper. So I don't understand if she hadn't had an abortion, but she wasn't involved in the hearings. What was her utility to the industry of death? Why did they need her? Well, they were looking actually, you know, to find someone like her, not well educated and kind of desperate situation who just would be used like a puppet. And in fact, the companion case that day, the Doe of dovey Bolden, father Frank and I know her too. Both ladies are Sandra kino. Same thing. She was her case was coming up through Georgia, while enormous was coming up through Texas. And Sandra signed on the dotted line thinking, she never two children back out of foster care. It was her mother who wanted her to put this child. And when Sandra found out, she left Georgia to Oklahoma to give birth to that

AJ Discusses Some of His Top Movie Closing Lines

"That line got me thinking about some of the best lines that closed out movies. There's so many of them. But I just thought I'd have some fun and throw in some down. And I think we can all agree Humphrey Bogart saying, Lewis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I think we can agree that's one of them for sure. One of my personal favorites is a very eerie, scary, sad one, Gloria Swanson, playing the ex silent film star Norma Desmond, and boy, it's such a great view of some old time Hollywood actresses and what they feel about their lives and careers and their beauty. One of the greatest films ever made, but she starts to walk close to the camera and she's talking to the great director Cecil B. DeMille who she apparently worked with when she was in her youth, but she wasn't working anymore. And she's walking toward the camera and she's saying, this is my life. It always will be. There's nothing else just us and the cameras and those wonderful people out there in the dark. All right, mister DeMille, I'm ready for my close up. And by the time she delivers that last line, she's in your face. You see that in a movie theater and that image doesn't leave for a long time. And then we take the 1995, the movie 7. Morgan Freeman, he's got some great lines and Morgan Freeman got some lines. And that movie was intense, and Morgan Freeman is basically summarizing the previous two hours of grief and grimness of David Fincher's movie when he says Ernest Hemingway once wrote the world is a fine place and worth fighting for. I agree with the second part. Oof. What magic with words? I mean, why even invoke the Ernest Hemingway part if all you really want to say is. You know, the world's worth of fighting for it. It's just a very strange way to go about something, but I find it fascinating. And of course, you can't count out it's cheesy, you know, but how can you count out Hannibal lecter? I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner. Silence of the Lambs

Carvey was of the opinion that her daughter ought to be thankful that she gave her life at the daughter said you true You wanted to kill me. Whether you did, whether you were able to or not. It's different. I mean, your goal was to kill me. I'm supposed to thank you because somebody stopped you from doing it. And the other point is you got yourself, not the sheet. The daughter says this. You got yourself knocked up by a guy and you put me up for adoption to be raised by somebody else. I'm supposed to be grateful to you. No way. Now the flip side of that would be If she had gone into a back alley and gotten an illegal abortion. This woman wouldn't be alive at all, which is how a lot of abortions were performed before Roe versus Wade. It's a fascinating thing to consider, though the lives of people who are around because abortions either failed or the mother couldn't get one or it was still illegal before Roe versus Wade, and the reason I believe it's a relative. A relevant topic is the thing that liberals want to do is never considered the fact that there is another human being involved here. If an abortion occurs, it means someone Even if you don't want to make the case that someone is killed. You certainly can't deny that someone who would have lived doesn't live. I mean, there's no way that even a lefty can work themselves into that, If whether you call it an unviable fetus, tissue mass or a human being. If the abortion occurs, Whoever that baby would have been isn't out here among us, So these people are So when you consider people who in the case of botched abortions either survived an abortion attempt. Or in the case of Norma McCorvey is daughter. Someone who was born because her mother struck out in her attempt to get an abortion. It proves that this debate is actually over, not simply the rights of the mother. But the rights of the human being for whom we're making a decision as to whether or not they live or die. Some of them are alive and for the first time We now know who Rose, baby. Is She's alive, and she's a real person. All I can imagine is the people who support Roe versus Wade must regret that she's not dead. Because if Roe versus Wade ruled on earlier She wouldn't be alive.

No blame game blaming all the people in their lives and blaming their circumstances for why they're struggling but really taking a hundred percent ownership for their choices their mistakes their circumstances no matter how crappy or embarrassing it might be. I had a ton of respect for people who were honest about their drama and trauma and were actively working on becoming better humans.

That reminds wait, Wait, wait, but that reminds me of Okay? I don't know if I can do this. It reminds me of what made Don I'm is famous. Can I do this? Alright, I'll think about it while you're thinking about it. Let's bring in George Vladimir George. Vladimir's in here, but okay, Yeah, sorry. George Vladimir is the Westchester County executive. Uh, well, he's basically my second favorite executive. Because I live in Nassau County and Laura current actually texted me yesterday. I wish me a happy birthday. What did I hear from Vladimir Crickets anyway? Hey, George, what's doing in Westchester? Yeah. You want to come back on the program soon. George, Her is the answer. Then hers it Yeah. Oh, he was playing tag team trivia still holds a grudge. Alright, George, Uh, Glenn and I want to rematch with Laura on elevator music from help. Yeah, well, Oh, come on. Can we do that? Natalie, we've got to do But let's come over some hard ones. No, we'll do that. We'll do that. Okay. Hey, George On a serious note or at 69.9%, the governor says when we get to 70, I mean, were there Come on, open, open everything up and let's be done with it. Well, we're there already in Westchester word 74.8. And I think Laura's even ahead of me with the 12 counties in the state for the big cash, or she is one and we're number two. So, but 74.8 you know, we've done everything we can within our power to open it up. Obviously, the power you know, the ultimate power in the state belongs to the governor. But but we're ready and I think that people are ready and we're doing everything we can to get back to normal. George, Let me ask you something, And I want you to be candid with me on this one. We know that Cuomo is just been encircled by scandals. Covid was the best thing that ever happened to him, and now he is in the pit, and he's trying to claw back out of that. And he's now saying even if we hit 70%, we may not be there yet. This man is clinging to the one thing that brought him to the top. And that is Covid. Do you see this guy still trying to keep people shut down just so that he can keep his job so that people will still think he's in charge of Covid. And if he does that, will people in West Treasures say We're not listening to him anymore? Life is going on. Yeah, I think you know. First of all, it's a big state, and there's different elements of the state. We sit right next to the Bronx and what's happening in Westchester. That's very good isn't quite at the same level in the Bronx. So, but I do think Look, I do think that opening up the society as long as you can justify it is the best possible politics because wherever I go, Mike around my county people, you know they're concerned about the virus, and they do want people who are unvaccinated. Wear masks, but they want if they are vaccinated, and that 75% of our county adults, they want to open up things. They want to be able to have summer concerts in the park. And I think that is the best politics If you want to be popular, and also do the right thing, And I think you want to open up to society more rather than shut it down. Shutting it down doesn't get you That doesn't get you anywhere. Vaccinations get you somewhere. Norma George Lattimore, the Westchester County executive. Well, the phrase we keep hearing is well when we hit 70%. We're going to open things up for the most part. So what part is not getting opened up at 70? Well, the concerns I would have from a suburban standpoint, if you get on a B line bus and your cheek to jowl with a bunch of people that you don't know that's probably where the mask needs to be on. Certainly if you walk into a hospital or a nursing home where you know there are germs and other sick people a mask should be on. But I have to tell you, you know, in every day walking around White Plains, Yonkers Mount Vernon, which is where we have our concentrated populations. Um people are not wearing masks, and I don't treat it as a problem Now, because of the vaccination rate, the spread is minimal. We we tested yesterday three some odd 1000. 12. People tested positive out of 3000. If those numbers started to go up, then we take a different actions. But right now I think the numbers and the circumstances allow for it. And people do want it. The springtime It's almost the summertime now. And they want to have normalcy and I think we want to deliver an officer. All right. So as normalcy mean that caramel is going to be open and that right Playland is going to be open. Yes, both will be. We're opening Playland, the 25th. Friday, a week from Friday. I guess it is and we're ready to go with Playland this year was closed last year Michael Open this year. Paramore has a big opening night coming up. In fact, there's a new director of caramel. It's time to give you a call. Because I know you love the place and this new guy should talk to you and talk to him. But, yes, I think those kind of things are happening When I said before about some of the park, all our little towns and villages all have their own little series of concerts and, you know, tribute bands and you know the local the local guys who played music and the vast majority that we're going to be up this summer, and it's going to be a lot better summer that we had last year. All right, George Vladimir Westchester County Executive, come back and challenge Laura current of Nassau County to elevator music from hell Looking forward to it. Thanks, George. Take care, guys. Alright, Good. Talkative congratulations on lawyers. Exiles. Looks like things are looking up in Westchester County.

Like norma desmond brains. All of joe stuff to her house and moves them in without her consent now. Emily doesn't take any roy's things but she does create a room for her and she does ask i.

But i think what this meant was huge top. She'll give you whatever you need to be there to be comfortable. It would be lavish well. And i think i've heard people comment before that. Emily really likes to show love through money in through buying things in you know you know the way she gives money for worries chiltern the way that she gives money for rory to go to jail and when rory says i don't want your anymore i don't want your money anymore. That's a huge deal to her. Into richard but especially to emily And both she norma desmond definitely try to buy people's affections Obviously emily is not quite as terrible as normal. Do not get me wrong. She is not on the same level. She is not evil eye. She has some twisted aspects to her relationships with her family. That's also true of every single person. Ever it feels like a normal person level of family dysfunction in a lotta ways. Yeah but they both definitely try and buy things to win your affection to win your presence to keep you around.

My friend grace and i were running late to church and she barked our countdown time from the passenger seat. Five minutes dude. We're still a few miles away. She screamed god. Still hasn't given me the stop time. Talent i'm going as fast as i can. It was the july after college graduation. My college roommates and i had decided to share one less carefree summer together. We played all summer each of us working part time and in vain clinging to the last vestiges of young adulthood. They were all three weeks away from heading out for various graduate schools. I was leaving to spend a year in. Amsterdam are worry free. Summer was spent embarking on adventures playing at the beach and sleeping in until noon. We talked about church but so far had bailed every week grace and i were the only ones going. We're both lazy on sunday morning. But we'd commit it. The church was thirteen miles away from our summer house and the last service began at eleven. Am we didn't walk out the door until ten forty five am. The sky wept as i pulled into the crowded parking lot at ten fifty nine. We laughed about our mature adult like behavior and found a parking spot. In another state. I realized distance from parking space to church was easily a thousand miles. The rain was blinding. And we didn't have an umbrella between us. Let's just blow it off this week. I suggested but i knew we couldn't. We dressed up for god after all we gathered our things made makeshift head coverings out of our jackets and sprinted from the car in one hand. I clutched both my jacket. And my giant norma's keychain my bible and purse were death gripped in the other hand. Grace only carried her jacket. At least seventeen feet of rain had fallen in the time. It took me to park. Grace i mustered our courage and ran at the same time. We were about ten feet away from the swarm. Faithful and responsible umbrella owning congregants who are reaching the churches front door. We swam to join the crowd. My soaked clothes weighing an extra hundred pounds and stuck to my buddy beamed with my love for god as i faced a possible drowning. Death for him are tears of laughter mixed with the rain and i could barely see. Suddenly i noticed that my wrap around skirt felt a bit loose and then gray shrieked with a new menacing laughter. She was pointing at me and covering her mouth. A cool breeze roared my backside before i realized what had happened. My hipster rap around pencil skirt was down around my ankles. My bright pink bikini. Briefs were on display for all of god's people and we were still thirty people back from entering the church. Foyer i exclaimed oh my grace help me. Grace replied is only close. Friends can way she said. Between bursts of giggles she turned to the family behind. Me over. ear is no one should have to see this. I had nowhere to put my belongings and struggled to pull up my skirt. please help grace. I pleaded. I need to savor this moment. I wondered if she was possessed by now. Most of the people surrounding us striptease a nervous. Dad laughed a grandmother. Told me i should feel ashamed of myself. And a mother with her two young sons. Put her hands over. There is finally graced. Took my stuff allowed me to pull up my sopping dirty skirt sitting through the service friend. She smiled. I narrowed my eyes and shot lasers at her. We walked into the back of the crowded service and those in the rows ahead of us turned and stared. I heard two women behind us. Whisper to each other. What is wrong with that girl. I prayed for a dark cave to crawl into. The god doesn't always answer prayers. In the ways we desire the judgment of stranger sent ways of heat through my otherwise shivering body. You can stay. Told grace. But i'm going. We snuck out and trudged back to the car. I can't wait to tell everyone. My compassionate friend said when my mortification wore off. I only regretted that i hadn't shouted. You're welcome on my way out of the service. A few years later grace introduced me to her fiancee's hunter sarah the skirt list wonder. I've heard all about you. He laughed and clapped. My back. neat responded to this day. I still have a hard time making eye contact with hunter again. My church strip-tease barely cracks my top five embarrassing moments so whenever you dur public humiliation i hope you'll recall my pink bikini briefs and i hope you'll realize that you're not alone.

Douglas Stuart Reads Kevin Barry

"Hi douglas debra. How are you. I'm alright welcome when we talked about doing this. You had originally been inclined to choose a scottish story to read on the podcast but in the end you settled on an irish one. Do you think that the two traditions are interlocked. The certainly have a very close relationship. But even in reading the kevin body still here realized how much of the pronunciation and the expressions weren't familiar to my ear and so although the close they are quite different in terms of This story it feels a little like a fairy tale in a sense. I mean it has that sort of fable like quality to it. And i feel so it may work in a tradition of irish fables. To what you think you think it's certainly in that tradition of irish oto storytelling. It starts off with You know the narrator. Saying so. I bought an old hotel in the fjord of killary and just the way he brings you into the story. You have a sense that not only as a fable but it's the type of story we would pass around in pubs and from most both and that i think is the irish tradition and certainly the scottish tradition. Because sometimes when we don't find ourselves in literature it doesn't mean we're not natural-born storytellers and those oral stories. Don't always get written down. That is absolutely true here. And i think that's part of the charm of this is just the mixture of these canisters. When you see it almost feels quite other-worldly at times. And i chose the story because first of all it's just totally entertaining but also because it made me nostalgic for a time when we could gather and and be together without thinking about the consequences about the weight that comes with with those gatherings. Yeah yeah having scenes in a in a pub with everyone talking it feels like another world. That's true did you read the story when it first came out in two thousand ten. I didn't actually. I was led to kevin body short stories. Because norma s- fan of his novel night bhutan. Jere and i was thinking about what i wanted to read. I love kevin. Barry and i was actually surprised to see. He has published many stories in the new yorker. Yeah the first one. I believe and Do you think that this one sort of fits in with his general themes it. Does i find him always writing about masculinity especially men on the margins. But what's interesting about this is. There's an absence of hard man or criminals or Petty gangsters that he often populate has novels these other short stories. These are just people who are gathering together in a pub And there's a poet at the heart of it. We'll talk some more after the story. And now here's douglas stuart reading fjord of killary by kevin berry fjord killary so i bought an old hotel on the fjord of killary. It was set hard by the harbour wall with moody amount across the water and disgracefully gray skies above. It rained two hundred. Eighty seven days of the year and the locals were given to magnificent mood swings on the night in question. The rain was particularly violent. It came down. Like handfuls of neal's flung hard and fast by a cd asli royal sky. God i was at this point eight months in the place and about convinced that it would be the death of me. It's end to the fucking world stuff out there. I said the quotas of locals and the hotels lounge bar as always ignored me. I was a fruitful blue in by their mark and simply not cut out for tough gnarly west of ireland. Living there were listening instead to jon murphy or alcoholic funeral director. Albury anything that fucking moves. He said bastards suicides tinkers. He said i couldn't give a fuck monkeys he said. Maria is the most depressing mountain you've ever seen by the way and it's gone looming shape filled almost every view from the water's edge hotel. The loans bars included the locals drank. Mostly bushmills whiskey and guinness stout and they drank them to great excess. I wiped they're slobs from the counter. With the bar cloth i had come to hate with a passion verging on the insane.

New York Repeals 'Walking While Trans' Law

"It's 2021. There's no reason that people should still be profiled and police based on how they look or dress this week, New York State repealed all love. It's commonly been called the walking while Trans Bam! And it is a decades old law that has allowed police to stop people in the street for loitering if they were suspected of prostitution, and many advocates and legislators say enforcement of that law has disproportionately affected women and especially transgender women of color. Women have been arrested simply for walking home for standing alone. Talking with friends. W my sees Emily Lang unpacked the news of the repeal and what it means for many transgender women in today's episode of Consider this a news podcast from NPR and W N. Y C. Is that conversation with Rebecca Ibarra? Emily activists have fought for years to repeal this 1976 anti loitering law. So what was their immediate reaction? Activists are definitely relieved. For many. It's hard for them to say that they're elated or happy because they're still so many different ways that black and brown trans women can be harassed under the law or by police. And I mean this is the third time since 2017 that a repeal proposal has had Momenta Min, the state Legislature. So a lot of people are mainly thing. Finally. Um, but for someone like T s candy, who I spoke with men, she's essentially been one of the main faces of this repeal. Candy says, you know, after running up and down the halls of Albany trying to get people to listen now eating my words that she feels like she's now eating her words. We need to clarify Emily that this repeal does not mean people will stop being arrested for engaging in prostitution that's still illegal, right prostitution is still illegal. However, the fact of the matter is that 19% of all trans people and 47% of black trans women have engaged in sex work. And that's according to the U. S Transgender survey, just due to discrimination that trans folks across the board face Sex work is a way to earn an income were as an alternative to relying on homeless shelters and food banks. So while lot of lawmakers who voted for the bill do not support decriminalizing sex work The majority of trans rights activists see this repeal as leading them towards decriminalization. So what, if anything happens to people who have been previously arrested under the law? So this bill Included the ceiling of prior convictions and why that's important is because someone charged with this violation has a criminal record that isn't sealed, and so it can impact their access to housing employment on been many cases, their immigration or asylum seeking process so Norma Oh, Torrio is with make the road New York, and she's a trans right activists and immigrant before the vote. She was speaking at a rally about how being arrested under this statute impacted her ability to apply for residency in the U. S. The visa was arrested in Pacifica. Those can tango, no empathy doctor never off the narrow, which, after two years she still hasn't been able to gain So ceiling could help many people with their immigration status. Leslie what is New York's track record so far protecting the trans community and in that context How big of a change is this? Actually, So In recent years, groups have managed to secure support from Governor Cuomo and passing the Gender expression Nondiscrimination act also known as agenda, which tremendous the human rights law to prohibit discrimination based on gender, identity or expression. They've gotten him to ban conversion therapy on minors. But when the walking while Trans Coalition speaks to a new era, the majority of folks are referring to their fight to de criminalize sex work, which in Albany, there may not be the same support that there was around this repeal, so to be interesting to see how lawmakers respond. That's W and my seat producer Emily Lang talking to Rebecca Ibarra.

What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?

"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.

What you need to know about open enrollment

What you need to know about open enrollment

"I want to give you an update on open enrollment, which is beginning any day now for many private employers, most of us. Who have the good fortune of having health coverage suing employer are go through these open enrollment periods where? You can change your coverage potentially your deductibles. What your premiums are going to be possibly have access to an HSA plan and I wanted to tell you one thing. A lot of people were worried about earlier. This year is not going to happen, and that is there are not going to be big increases in premiums for employer provided coverage that you would do during employer-provided open enrollment or if you're buying an individual plan and most of the country, you're not going to see any large increases if you're buying a plan at healthcare dot Gov or your state equivalent website for an individual plant, the reason is the cost of providing care for Corona virus have not. Changed the math four insurers for particular crazy reason. You know how earlier this year I was telling you about people who were not going to their doctor visits and people were even having heart attacks and they were refusing to go to the emergency room. Well a lot of. Normal. medical that people would get people weren't doing and insurers actually have seen a significant benefit. From lower utilization of medical services, and that's why there's not going to be big increases and premiums except in odd situations but unlikely and employers really don't WanNa rock the boat much with their employees. For Twenty one in the open enrollments coming up. But if you are someone who has changed employers this year lost your job got another one. The new job doesn't have health coverage. You then become eligible. To buy coverage for yourself, and if you have family members, family members as well at the healthcare dot Gov site, and if your state has its own, they will refer you straight to it. And that starts next Sunday. For the open enrollment period that is six weeks long for buying an individual health plan. And on their, you'll have a choice of color coded plans. That are bronze silver, gold or, platinum. And the colors is you go up. The colors the premiums are higher the coverage more robust but I want you to know that if you don't qualify for subsidies. On the exchanges, the premiums you pay are frightening I mean they are very very large. The reason is the average cost of insurance for family. In the United States now from an employer. And it may not be what you're paying, but it's the overall cost of what you pay. The employer pays is now over twenty one, thousand dollars a year. So you by an individual policy, it reflects similarly and so the premiums are John Norma's. On the Individual Exchange though most people buy their qualify. Financially for some level of subsidy. That reduces the premiums a great deal, but even when you get past the premiums You got the deductibles that are pretty significant. If you. Wish you can buy what I a junk health insurance policy, which is one where you can buy it for a period of. A year up to renewing two more times for a total of three years that does typically does not cover pre existing. Does not cover serious illnesses typically like cancer heart disease, diabetes. But provides a base level of coverage with tight limits on total coverage. With very cheap premiums people argue about whether it's better than nothing or worse than nothing. But if the premiums at healthcare dot cover the state equivalent or out of sight, but you don't WanNa be completely uncovered. You can look at that. The other alternative is what's so is a faith based health insurance policy is not really insurance policy faith-based medical reimbursement plan. That are offered by many religious organizations are religiously affiliated organizations where people of like minded faith pool their money together. And Pay. Some not all of the medical expenses of people in the pool. The risk is if you got a couple of people with this very serious illness, the pool can run out of money, but the premiums are much much cheaper.

Dept. of Justice Accuses Google of Illegally Protecting Monopoly

"We we turn turn today today to to title title fifteen fifteen of of the the United United States States code code section section two, two, which which reads reads in in relevant relevant part part every every person person who who shall shall monopolize or attempt to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several states shall be deemed of a felony and unconvicted thereof shall be punished by fine not exceeding one hundred, million dollars if a corporation. So, if you don't know now, you know the corporation and question of course, is Google which found itself on the receiving end of an antitrust lawsuit today filed by the Department of Justice and eleven state of general. So as we do when technology leads the news we've gotten molly would the host marketplace tech on the phone to make a smart? Hey, molly. AK So So many questions number one is who's been around for a long time. It's been John Norma's for longtime dominant for a very long time what took so long for this to happen. Yeah, well, it's really interesting because, and in fact, the Department of Justice notes this in their filing. There is legally a difference between being really really really big and really dominant as you know and between maintaining that dominance in a way that crosses over into illegality, and so it takes a while to make that case basically that maintaining the dominance is the illegal part whereas it's fine to just be gigantic route What's The counterargument? What's Guna say? We're we're just doing our businessmen nobody here, but US chickens. I mean, yes Google counter argument is that this is a flawed lawsuit and that there are plenty of options out there for search their official blog post rebutting the filing of this lawsuit included a lot of gifts in which people use being Microsoft's having. So if you know anybody who does definitely, let me know I want to talk to them. And then they counterargument to kind of the lawsuit itself which a lot of pundits said. N Even. Legal Scholars people who worked on for example, Microsoft case in the nineties said you know this? This case could have been bigger. There were suggestions that it was being rushed even over the objection of some career lawyers and state attorneys general in order to get out before the election. And the scope of it is very limited to search the counter to all of that. Of course, as you gotta start somewhere and these cases are a big deal right an and searches is kind of the low hanging fruit. Let me just back up a minute to that to that bing thing you are, and we've talked about this on making me smarter our podcast, your devoted user of Duct Dot Gov for its privacy implications. Of course, it's more protective than usual, but also the point being. How many really good options are there if you want comprehensive search, it's got to be Google right because they've got all the data and everything. Well, there are a couple arguments around that. One is that people perceive ruled have better search results because it's filter bubble because who knows a lot about you? So it will say Oh if you the example, actually that lawyer I talked to today gave was that maybe there's a plumber in your area and a lot of people have used that plumber before and so they'll search they'll service give you that search option I. But in fact, you might not want that you might want somebody who's better vetted or something along those lines. The Art. The core of the argument that the Department of Justice is making here is that Google has paid a ton and a ton of money to device makers, including apple and using its own android platform to make sure that Google is the default so that every time I, for example, want to use duck duck. Oh, in a browser or on my apple device I have to. Find the setting that lets me change that default and most people don't write and let the whole thing was what got Microsoft in trouble right with back low these many years ago. The last time we had an antitrust thing was they were put s right, right? Yeah. This lawsuit impact is very, very similar to the Microsoft case someone on twitter referred to it as almost a cut paste. Well you know they can. They can do that at the Justice Department. We got a half a minute tops what now happens inside Google. They fight this thing because I imagine even though they can afford a lot of lawyers it's going to suck the life out of them. It's a big deal. It's a really big deal even if you quibble about the scope and whether they should have included advertising and data, the fact is that these cases have major impacts at it set Microsoft. Back a decade of innovation. It's at IBM back a decade back in starting nineteen, sixty, nine at and T.. So Google spends a lot of money a lot of time and is very, very distracted trying to fight this thing. Molly would the host of marketplace tech thanks. Thanks.

Sentiment Preserving Fake Reviews

"My Name Is David Delaney repeal today at Zaylon inversely I walk with a spoken language system who will do research on natural language understanding like some speech recognition on mostly natural language processing very cool. Definitely some exciting areas. Do you have a particular focus within that field or a special problem? You're tackling. I'm walking mostly on privacy. Preserving looks stems, but I'm working on the test. Side this guy when you're ready, do speech recognition on you? Try to remove over private information. Ice remained in his. His speech transcript, so we have focusing on out the way neutralize. Every private sensitive was in speed transcripts I see a lot of challenges in that. If you don't mind before we get to the main paper loved unpack it a little bit more. It would be natural that you could recognize someone saying okay. My pin number is one two three four, and you know to blank that out, but I imagine there's some trickier problems to. Could you give an example of a really tough situation that's. For Algorithms phase ample warn really difficult task is style the rightist time on speaking style, so dare ways you could kind of hot noise to dispatch cigna in such a way that you're not able to independent voice, or was it get to speak transcript? Everything isn't next I. You can analyze the style of the writing or the person against. The Pistons. Information and this doesn't relate to what you can automatically detect like credit card, number or four norma. Do some patent much into. So these are more difficult task. Will the main paper I asked you on to discuss is generating sentiment preserving fake online reviews using natural language models, and they're human and machine based detection so a Lotta great stuff that is right in line with what we talk about data skeptic. Maybe we can begin at a high level, fake reviews or nothing new. What's becoming more interesting? What's changing right now? It's very problem probably is one of the reasons why Amazon hard like. By and you're not from a big defense we have now is. We have very good motives that gone generate through ain't synthetic text, as it's very difficult to distinguish from humans and technology, ordinarily talk models gets bit day by day at by professor used to say like what is the new this month? So this guy like almost heaven wants you have. That's along with coming out. As assistant improves also the difficulty in disagree real awesome, the difficulties I Siam. We'll given the state of the art when you as a human being read certain reviews, does it pass the imitation game? Can you tell those that are fake in those that are real? I think this is really difficult. Phase observe in our paper is always by run on chassis, so must just get lucky spearmint where we give us as far views allows them to identify one review from four options. I think he accuracy was Sarah five percent, which means that. That is just like a game of chance I guess what. What's the point of these fake reviewers? Why are the producers of such things producing them the reason start? She could use it to in France. It was decisions. Example from by officials of customers can visit to increased profit on visit to pack your competitors, so they'd have less customers, so I think also about from Dave reviews this time. It also used the same technology of politics by on twitter. Just four. Please benefit to where you just try to drive attention of people to. Tear your organization and maybe someone who's very cynical might say oh. Who Cares about the fake reviews? Let's just assume reviews fake, and I have to take everything with a really really big grain of salt. Why do we need a systematic algorithm approach to help I think long be differences that people are not only in phrase, the content of the review, but they also influenced by the volume on much shove reviews. It's not put get so this kind of for affect decisions of able for example to buy decisions report one thousand reviews Amazon or you want to just let because you have ready to all you know when I, fake story, and this kind of affect was. On if you take some time to read that, and it's very difficult to originally views at it's difficult to really disagree what idea fake on. Charlie you will just go for this. There's a need for automatic way of removing his facing. They. Get an assistant I use a do not use just a volume of number for this decision.
