"Mcdougall and work alongside Doug Lyle and Jeff novick and Jack Dixon or our exercise trainer and just Heather mcdougall Mary mcdougall, just such an awesome team. Is unbelievable. And then, of course, not to mention just literally, as I describe it, getting a front row seat to seeing people's lives transformed. That's what we sign up for medicine. To do in the first place, but which often we become disenchanted when we find we're refilling medications and making referrals and sort of seeing the revolving door of medical care. Yeah. Well, I want to come back to that a little later. But first, I'm fascinated with your particular journey to medicine. So after Stanford, what did you do first? Did you go to law school? Did you travel to China? What did you do? Well, so my junior year of Stanford, I started thinking, you know, maybe business is what I'm really interested in. So I did an internship at a management consulting company called Bain and company. It's sort of similar to McKinsey, BCG. Basically helping large Fortune 500 companies with various business issues that they have. And I enjoyed it. And so my first gig out of Stanford was working at Bain and company originally, it was going to be in San Francisco. But when gene, my wife got into Harvard med school, we just felt like that was an opportunity not to be passed up. And so I transferred my offer out to Boston and worked at Bain and company in Boston. But before I did that, I pursued a lifelong dream of learning my mother tongue, which is Mandarin, which I didn't grow up learning, because my parents speak different dialects. So I went to Beijing and studied one year of Mandarin really intensively day in day out and by the end, I mean, I was jamming. I was traveling all around the country for weeks at a time. All my own talking with people and really getting around just based on the new language I picked up, which was incredibly fulfilling. Was it the dialect of your mother or your father? All right, I mean, it's the root. It's Mandarin. There's so many different dialects. So my mom was born in Shanghai. My dad was born in Singapore, so they speak two different dialects, but the one common language that everyone speaks in China is Mandarin. So that was what I so how cool how cool was it to be able to go home and talk to your parents? It was unbelievable. And especially my wife's mom, Mandarin was her first language. So to be able to talk with her and still, to be able to talk with her, I mean, of course, I don't have the same level of opportunity. I do now as I did then. So declined, but still would it just be able to talk with simple things with her and order food at restaurants. It's cool. So then I came back..

I really want to know how that works. And i'm gonna take it apart. While was it. Just like hey. I'm just a math. My grandfather took me to antique tractor shows in central kansas.

It's okay we just keep an eye on her. that's all right. The burning building birds. We know what happened. Okay so you. You decided to go into mechanical engineering and was it. I mean a little bit of a offhand question was did you find it hard to be a female mechanical engineer in the middle of kansas. Absolutely it was me one other girl she was from houston and that was it and it was just the two of us and a bunch of dudes and it was. It wasn't terrible but it got more and more challenging as we got further along in the coursework. Because i'm really good at math. She was really good at math. There are some people in engineering.

"Rules now it's not necessary but if you do wanna pause the episode here and try to solve the puzzle yourself go for it. Give you a hint that it can be solved in what's usually considered fourteen steps or fourteen stages. Okay so i'm not going to read out all of the steps to the solution here but you can look it up and find it online. If you're stumped. I'm sure just google it. It'll come up One reason this particular puzzle is useful for studying problem. Solving is in studying. What's known as the hill climbing heuristic. Now here Novick and basalt described the hill climbing here stick as a problem solving technique in which at each step the solver applies the operator that yields a new state that appears to be the most similar to the goal state in other words. You know what your end goal looks like and at each step you do whatever it is that appears to get you into a state that looks more similar to the goal state so if your goal is to get to the highest altitude at each step you just try going up hill hence hill climbing now studies in cognitive psychology. Show that we use the hill climbing heuristic a lot Novick basok cite the example of chronicle mcgregor and ormrod in two thousand and four who found that people naturally use the hill climbing here a stick in a task that involved sorting coins into a particular order. We probably do is just keep moving the coins in a way that makes them look closer to the final order. They're supposed to be in until you get there. In the context of the hobbits orcs game hill climbing would mean that at each stage. You just try to find whatever legal move will get the most creatures to the goal side of the river off of the starting side of the river without breaking the rules and studies have found that people do use the hill climbing heuristic to generate steps when solving the hobbits and orcs problem and for the most part it works but also to studies by thomas and green. Oh both in. Nineteen seventy four found that people hit a major roadblock around step number seven or eight in the game because as novick and basic write quote the correct. Move at this point. In fact the only non backtracking move is for one hobbit and one or two. Take the boat back to the original side of the river so essentially while it must be done in order to complete the puzzle it looks counterproductive because the only way you can finish the puzzle is to cause a temporary net migration of creatures to the wrong side of the river. It's a necessary step but it actually ends up looking less similar to your goal state than the step before it did and the studies by thomas and green. Oh both found that people really get hung up at this step. it was..

Then titus or anybody else winning a gold medal. The the coolest moment for me was a post game interview. I did with pablo korean augusta who played for bronze for spain and he was so emotional just to win a medal and to represent his country and when i interviewed him he was crying and he said. I know i didn't win. But i felt like i did. And it was such a cool moment like it was really amazing and it reminds you of how important to athletes even pro athletes. These are guys were now. We're going to go back on tour and playing the us open and a couple of weeks and you know have a chance to you know. They gave up a week's worth of making money to to play in the olympics. How important it is to them to represent their country. Well you know what else in all this controversy over simone biles dropping out and signing her mental health issues. I learned that she was the daughter of a single mother of four. Who had serious drug problems. Slum byles was in foster care for much of her childhood until she was adopted by her grandparents so she had a really difficult. go of it As as a child and a contrast between the way she's conducted herself. Someone else that you interviewed. Trying to kushner. Eric novick djokovic who had who criticized simone biles and said she had a meltdown. He of course the great tennis player. Tell us about oil spoiler. You said it. Let's play here. This is before he had his meltdown after he won a thing. Here's karenni talking to joke of it at the start of this match our analysts brad. Gilbert said he feels like you're playing better tennis at the age of thirty four which by the way is not very old than you were at the age of twenty four. What do you say to that. Thank you pretty good answer. He smiled at. You is very charming. But he is a fox news commentator. I did not know that. And i even i didn't know that. Yeah well anyway talk about his meltdown and the criticism he did not get versus all the criticism that was piled on simone biles he was i should say. He was criticized in the tennis world. When and in that sort of little bubble right would he chose. So what happened was novak djokovic for those of you don't follow sports. Closely novak djokovic has won the australian open the french open and wimbledon so he came to japan hoping to win a gold medal in tennis and then if he wins the us open he would be this only the second tennis player ever to win. What's called the golden slam. Which means you win all four tennis majors in one calendar year and a gold medal the only other to ever do it with steffi graf in nineteen eighty eight so there were huge expectations on him..

Do you know how he felt about the phone. Yes they love the film and they've gotten a ton of great responses from friends and people they know and don't know so the family as far as we know very happy with the film which i think says a lot about them because as you said. It's tough on hemingway. Well you are so exhaustive though and you're trying to be fair and the detail you're clearly you're bending over backwards trying to just tell the story and not be judgmental about it. Has there been a criticism that you have seen. That has been fair. I haven't seen much criticism because you guys you guys. I don't know. I don't wanna say that you're immune to criticism but you tackled subject matter so thoroughly that it is hard to criticize. We'll we welcome criticism. Frankly i always appreciate really thoughtful critiques of our work. Because i learned something and often a writer or critic is looking at something from a different perspective than the way we chose to look at it. I haven't seen too much criticism of hemingway and frankly i expected that there would be more because of his very nature of who he is. He's a white man of privilege who occupies or had occupied a very high position in the fall of literature. And we're in a moment where were questioning and challenging that privilege and that right to be considered a great writer given who was and given his misogyny given the racism of his work and anti semitism. I think i'm not surprised. But i'm i'm glad that we were able to present a portrait of him as nuanced and complicated and doesn't shy away from holding him accountable for these things so that criticism out there but hasn't been as much as i thought it might be. I don't know how long you have to work on something like this year's seems obvious. So how much did the story change with. Just the way. America changed over the last thirty six months. Yeah that's a really hard question because we did start working on this film six years ago and we were well into editing. You're almost done with the film last summer but the questions of me too and systemic racism and reckoning with our history have been around for a while so an hemingway. Scholarship has certainly been engaging these questions for the last generation. So it's impossible to really answer that i'm sure that the moment were and or have been in the last five years effects who interviewed what we asked them what we put him the film what questions we want to know about hemingway why he matters today or does it. We see the world as we are now through the lens of the world. We live in a possible not to. And how do you imagine for the people who have not seen the film and are just listening this with a curiosity. What will you say to them. They will probably find most problematic. Because there's a lot of ground you're covering here object matter it's all very nuance but to the people on have a familiarity with the subject matter would say they're gonna find what to be the most egregious stuff here to say. I have people watching up their own mind. I you know. He's a human being struggling to make sense of the world and he sees a lot of aspects of life. That aren't pretty as he wants to. Put it in the big and the bad and the ugly as well as what is beautiful and otherwise his work must be true. So i think the most one of the most fascinating is this whole question of nasty levy and how it became kind of a straightjacket for him We haven't talked about this. But you know as scholars have known this for a while..

"Vietnam war is that the most fulfilling project that you have done because of the terror- and because of that or would you regard something else as the most fulfilling just something that when you're done with it you were like man that was just really rewarding work and i'm a little extra proud of it for whatever your reasons. Yeah the vietnam. War was a profound experience and i think getting to know so many vietnamese people who lived through an american veterans and keep who protested the war in knowing that it was such a traumatic experience for so many people in so many different ways figure out ways for them to share that story with us and to kind of absorb it was often very painful and completely devastating but also it felt like this really matters. People need to hear this story and people are going to be grateful for the way we've told hopefully and we were grateful to be present when the people that we got to talk to. You told us their stories. And i liked to hope that it helped them to so i interviewed a woman jeanmarie crocker. Who's a gold star. Mother of the vietnam war her son moby had died in the mid sixties when the war was still kind of the beginning of the big escalations. And you know forty years later. She was still remembering the day. She got the news that he died like it was yesterday and asked her to tell. That story was well just hard. And i worried afterwards that you know. Maybe that wasn't the right thing to do to ask someone to relive a trauma like that up but after the film came out and speaking with her. She said it really helped her. Just tell the story and she found that help other people who'd been through that and she heard from people who also had lost children in vietnam and other wars and that somehow her generosity of going through that pain again. It helped her to heal. So that's not always true. And i don't wanna be overly simplistic about it. But i hope that sometimes you though we're asking people to share extremely painful experiences. It is for the greater good. Was there anything in. Hemingway not hard like that but that was a moral challenge or something. Yeah should we be doing this. Is this the right thing. Like how many of those crossroads when you're when you're exposing so much of a man's life and this is a public man but and he's gone and and you're you're trying to be fair at every turn but did you find yourself in any moral crossroads there not to the same degree i would say because hemingway's gone like you said. And he made his own bed so to speak. I was very acutely aware. And i know cannon seren jeff were shoe of just how the film land for. Let's say his family. I mean he's a real person. His son patrick is still alive. I interviewed him. I know him pretty well..

Are you going to like the person well.

We are adding a lot of voices and people and talents and expertise is that are someone and people that. I think that you're are going to really grow to admire and love their work. If you don't already and lynn novick has been someone who has been making great documentaries with. Ken burns for a long time. The latest is hemingway. It is exhaustive. It is profound. It is humanizing his complicated and i want to talk to her about that because it like much of what she makes is artful on subject matter where the degree of difficulty. I don't believe people understand how hard it is to go through archives and keep that visually stimulating when you're going through such dense and complicated subject matters so anyways i'm thrilled to have lynn. Novick doing advisory stuff and consulting stuff for metal arc. Median thrilled to have her on with us now to talk about her latest work which is as i said as all of them seem to be len and thank you for joining us exhaustive. Did you enjoy this process.

New Documentary Examines Ernest Hemingway's Complicated Life
"If you've never picked up a hemingway book in your life you probably have no trouble conjuring an image of the man himself. The fighter the lover the hunter the fishermen the living breathing punching shooting cursing drinking bundle of tropes about manhood but the myth that ernest hemingway created was both a blessing into curse. It turned him into a global celebrity. And it certainly didn't hurt his book sales but it also became an avatar of sorts. That master far more complex man and became more and more exhausting.

"To another record high Monday as the Cryptocurrency touches the $44,000 Marcus In part because of Tesla's big $1.5 billion investment, becoming the biggest company yet to back the Cryptocurrency. Mike Novick Brats of Galaxy Digital, spoke earlier on Bloomberg television. Young people are buying into the future, and they see crypto currencies, Bitcoin and other kryptos as their currencies on DSA. So Elena's a genius in that he realized listen to the people. We'll put some of my balance sheet in there because he's worried about the dollar. Okay, that's a speculative bed. But it's more the messaging of what he was doing. That's important right, allowing soon to be allowing customers to buy in crypto. You're going to see every company in America do the same thing. Well, it looks like it's not just cos that's thinking about this. You have Mayor Francis Suarez. Miami thinking about adopting Bitcoin on its balance sheet, according to a tweet he had sent out today. How realistic is something like that and are more cities likely to think about it? Listen, there's a war for talent between companies and between cities, right We've got this tax arbitrage going on where people move out of New York, T o Miami or TOE AUSTIN, Texas. You've got cities fighting for the best human capital. Now you've got the biggest, you know, the wealthiest man in the world and one of the biggest stories doing it. You gotta think other CFO's and CEO is gonna say, what should we be doing? Let's talk about value here for a second, then where should Bitcoin be in six months? Listen, I originally bought big clue it in the year of 50 or 60,000. Things were happening so much faster than I had predicted. Right. The corporate adoption rate the institutional adoption rate is accelerating beyond certainly what I thought about tonight, I think between could endure $100,000. Tony's out for Maura and a look on Tesla's dive into Bitcoin Wedbush Securities managing director Dan Ives. Dan What's your Take on Iran and Tesla backing Bitcoin to this extent? A village really speculation the market the last few weeks would test the ultimate dive into the deep end of the pool when it came to big corn, and I think this is a move that significant. Because it tests on musk and no ultimate thing. It's really two parts because this is was the transaction peace and definitely this is going to have a massive impact today across corporations. Was MicroStrategy now, Tessa. But when most talks other listen, and I think this is going to be a big move in terms of the currency from a corporate perspective and investment, and so, Tessa It's just another potential talent from a moment. Um, perspective. Well when musk talks, you're one of the people who have to try and figure out what he's trying to say what it actually means. What's your take on these? These does coin. Tweets on I think the worry is you don't want a sideshow to ruin what's happening in the golden age of TV because house despite all the issues over the last few years back in the wall right now they're in Leadership position in the market that that's gonna be in the trillions over the coming years, GM and others going after it. I think that's the one thing that it's fine to invest on Bitcoin transactions. Few leader That's who musk is. We've seen it across the board. But you don't want the sideshow and some of the tweets to overshadow the broader story that Happening right now. And I think that continue to be a balancing act from investors, especially when you look it. Musk and everything he's accomplished. Right. I do want to move on to Apple. Lots of speculation through the weekend as to whether Apple isn't talked with Hyundai and Kia about an electric self driving car. Both those companies now coming forward, saying they're not In talks with Apple. What exactly is happening here? What exactly is Apple working on? Sure, So I think there's gonna be a lot of twists in terms on cooking Cupertino evey initiatives. I think what we saw with this Hyundai news. I still don't think that that dead but it's just shoes. That Apple is going to continue to pick a partner and they're not done there, and I think there's a few partners that they potentially could look at. We thought Hyundai also the W was potentially Ford. It's not a matter of if they're going to go into evey. It's matter when and I believe this is going to be a significant initiative in terms of the Apple car. It's about a partner. We believe over the next 3 to 6 months they pick in evey partner but clearly allowed twists and turns as we've seen with this Hyundai News over the last few weeks. And what will be apples key differentiator from the main competition, which is Tesla at this point? It's in my opinion, the best brands looking sure perspective Global, the Golden brand 1.4 billion IOS devices. You bring what I believe in the labs in Cupertino Autonomous with that unparalleled installed base to the right easy partner. We're talking about potentially 5 to 10% market share but $5 trillion market. That's why I believe that is going to dive into the deep end of the pool and easy and hopefully this could add $30 plus choose the stock as they're even just what I believe, partially successful in terms of establishing themselves. Do 2024 apple cars on the road? All right, Dan, as always love your golden metaphors here. Dan Ives of Wedbush Securities. Thanks so much, much to follow. Okay, coming up.

CNBC's Fast Money
Microsoft plans cloud push with foreign governments
"Do have some news here on Microsoft's CNBC's Jordan novick report that Microsoft is signing deals with foreign governments to offer cloud packages. This would be sort of like the bundle. Remember it simple for the dod the Pentagon remember there's that Djeddai contract with up to ten billion dollars over ten years that's being contested by Amazon Microsoft. Already has relationships with foreign governments. We don't know which ones yet here this could evolve joins understanding is this is going to be formally announced later this year, of course, we know in that cloud infrastructure intrastructure market Amazon. Go head to head in two thousand, nine, hundred Amazon control about fifty percent of that market and Microsoft and told about fifteen percent of it. Microsoft shares no ticket high here in the after hours Brian Back to you. Right up one point, four percent just thank you very much. All right. By the way for more than Microsoft's cloud feelings, you can head over to CBC Dot Com read more about that story that Joshua's talked about from our crack team. They're more yet another stock not as not not as superlative as apple, but certainly has been a monster of a moneymaker. Well. If you look at a five year charter Microsoft. Better chart so. The turnaround there that started a few years ago under such Adela has been all about the cloud has been all about enterprise like Microsoft teams is going to be taking market share. There's there's a major argument that you. You'd be buying that selling zoom as you look to to even just where I think some of the big tech giants will probably push around companies like zoom. So Microsoft is is as far as I'm concerned. They are the other company to be talking about in in this world of of Mega Cap Tech. This is the multiple that is you know depending on what you think you should be paying. Thirty two to thirty five times is that cheap? Well, they are taking market share in the cloud. There's no question that they are beginning to to really dominate but as your. Gaming is a billion dollar business and Microsoft clearly is is navigated the the regulatory environment. The irony is, of course you know. Back, in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, they were the ones that really started this. I think this focus on big cap tech and they're the ones that seem to be navigating best right now. Care Certainly. So be cared quickly go back to you talked about Apple Peter Lynch model like I love my phone. So I'm GonNa Buy Apple you don't hear a lot of people say man I really love that outlook. Oh, I couldn't live without excel. Zoom player I'm kidding on that one there an enterprise everybody deserve. The same kind of a French in that a consumer is going to or maybe more. Well, I. Think your point's well taken that in this environment where a lot is driven by narrative and. Just getting that attention of the so-called robinhood traders Microsoft isn't necessarily that exciting, right but look at the business that had has it's got great contracts coming up in contrast to Amazon. It appears that it's got kind of the tap on the shoulder from the government to go out there and get these contracts. I mean the government talked about them buying TIKTOK. That's a that's an acknowledgement that Microsoft has got a bit of a regulatory governmental tailwind to it. I agree ten listen it's it's over maybe it's over valued it. It was my pick few weeks ago when I did the fast pitch or whatever that thing is we did and I one and I'm still riding high from that and I would still apply Microsoft.
Changing our formulation of AI to avoid runaway risks: Interview with Prof. Stuart Russell
"Hey everybody so instead of having myself and Ben. Your usual hosts and here with special guest professor Stuart Russell of Berkeley Who's written a really fascinating book about Ai in the future of AI? And we're GONNA talk about it Professor Russell. Thank you for joining me. It's a pleasure. You're listening to linear digressions so Professor Brussel I know your name might be familiar to a lot of folks who are listening to this podcast. But for those who don't know your work as much or they may be recognized the name but aren't quite sure how to place it. You might giving a brief introduction. Sure so I've been a Berkeley Longer than I can't remember about thirty four years and I've been doing a I actually since I was in high school. I wrote a chess program. background nine hundred. Seventy five In high school so I've been doing a along time You might know my name if you've taken. Ai Costs you possibly used a book by Russell Ovik So Peter Novick and I wrote that starting in Nineteen ninety-two. We just sent the fourth edition off to the printer last week and So my research has covered Pretty much every area of artificial intelligence reasoning learning problem solving game playing planning robotics language. Vision these days I'm concerned about the following simple question which we had actually in the First Edition Textbook What if we succeed? There's a new book that you have out now human compatible artificial intelligence in the problem of control as you mentioned this. It sounds like this is something. You've at least been aware of for a long time. WanNa ask what motivated you to write this book now? So the book Sort of has two parts. One is the part that says okay. This is how we currently think they I And this is why it's extremely wrong And if we assume the current standard model they I As I systems. Get better and better We face the prospect of losing control over them. And losing control to machines altogether Second part of the book says okay. Here's how to fix it Here's a way of doing I on a completely different kind of general theoretical foundation and conceptual framework And in this new framework it seems that At least that failure mode of losing control Two machines Seems to go away. The why now is because Sometime around twenty thirteen. Two Thousand Fourteen I figured out what the second half of the book should be namely is a way of dealing with the problem I didn't just want to write a book saying okay. We're all dude right. Alan Turing actually. Nine hundred fifty one said World Dude. So there's not I wouldn't be a new point so without asking you to cannibalize your book sales too much here. You know in in a snapshot what what is the Fundamental Way. That we've gotten it wrong for a long time and where. Where is the ray of hope that you found in that second half the book so this down model of AI? involves building machinery that optimizes a fixed known objective So if you remember if you've read the first few chapters of the book the textbook We talk about for example problem solving systems that Find a sequence of actions that's guaranteed to achieve a goal with minimum cost. So there you have to specify the goal you have to specify the cost function in Moctezuma processes you have to specify the reward function in machine learning algorithms. You have to specify the function In control theory you have to specify a cost function so in fact it's not just A. It's a good fraction of twentieth century. Technology is based on this model and the model is wrong because me do not know how to objectives correctly particularly when you have systems at start to operate in the real world is easy on the chessboard to say okay. You're supposed to win the game But in the real world you might say okay. I'd like you to restore carbon dioxide levels to Pre industrial concentration so that we can get the climate back and balance. That sounds great. What a wonderful objective. What could go wrong wrong? Well you'd get rid of all the people because they're the ones who are producing the carbon dioxide and then you might say okay well. Let's not do that. Let's Restore Carbon Dioxide and not kill anybody And then of course. The system has Subtle and complex social media campaign. That convinces everyone to have fewer and fewer children Until there are no people left and then carbon dioxide is restored. And that's much easier than trying to do all the politics of convincing people to stop consuming and producing and all that kind of stuff so So actually we've known this for a long time where we have the story of King Midas you know. He gave his is objective specification. Everything he touches asa to gold and of course it was the wrong objective died because his food and drink and his family to MD gold And the genie. You get three. Your third wish always please undo the first two issues because I messed everything up. So we know this And yet we assist with a model with the more effective the better the I the worse the outcome is going to be the human beings And if that isn't a bad engineering model I don't know what is right so I think we should abandon that. We have doing things In brief solution is to say that The machines objective is still to satisfy human preferences about the future. But the machine knows that it doesn't know what those preferences are so as explicitly uncertain Just to give you a simple analogy When you go to restaurant the restaurant doesn't know what you want to eat. They know that they don't know they. You what would you like to eat? What MENU CHOICES? And if you pick something off the menu That isn't their life. Subjected will cost to to give you that thing you know if they're out of that item they're not gonNa you know traipse all over the city trying to find more of it. They'll say well. Sorry so you know. We're out of the duck tonight or you know the chickens not so great but maybe I could recommend the polk medallions instead whatever. It might be so. This is perfectly normal and understandable human beings that we don't know what Other humans want and we asked them and or they tell us and we we have an interactive process and we can do the same thing with machines. The machine knows that it doesn't know what you want but it has to somehow act in a way that is beneficial to us so it's naturally motivated so it's trying to solve that problem. The solution to that problem is to do things like US questions off Commission before before you kill everyone the restore carbon dioxide levels you ask you know. I understand about the carbon dioxide is it okay if I kill everyone and then you can say no. That's not why we added more sure that you're not right. Yeah so that's the basic oil and We can formulate this. Mathematically if you're interested you problem in Game Theory And the solutions to those games have the property that the better the I the better the outcome the human beings
A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
Lane Selman on the Culinary Breeding Network
"Breeding network. Tell us about it sort of genesis and I think I in its creation story. There were peppers involved right. Yeah tell us about sore. Yeah so I worked for Oregon. State University Here in Oregon and I work on a project recalled novick which is the northern organic vegetable improvement collaborative and that is a project that's led by Oregon State University but also includes the organic Steve Alliance. That's up in Washington but works nationally University of Wisconsin at Madison and Cornell University so at each of those institutions there are breeders that breed at least part-time specifically for organic farmers. which have very different needs? A lot of the same needs a lot of gardeners I believe and and also and so so what we've done in this project project as Taking a lot of the breeding lines that all these different plant breeders are working on their specific organic systems and trial them on a lot. A lot of different firms all over the country to see how they perform On organic farms. And we compare them to varieties that we no are gonNA perform really well on farms. We also test out new varieties that come out. You know you open up your seats. How like right now? At this time of year we opened the seed catalogs catalogs and as farmers it's like. Oh Wow. There's always new varieties. Are They GonNa do well for me are not everyone's thinking that right So we trial all those And this one year we were trailing these sweet peppers so kind of like a roasting pepper. The ones that Corner Detoro they call them That are pointed me too. That are really nice for for have stick wall for roasting and we're trying to find a variety that would perform really well here in Oregon where we have You know we have short season. We have Also we have evenings at get really cool. Where a lot of times on the east coast like they say well but warmer so so we never really know a variety to perform really well? So we're looking for that And so we knew exactly what the farmers wanted out of a variety but And we're finding that out. We're doing all this work on the farms. But then I had the question like well. What about what they taste like grow great? They don't taste great then. That really isn't that helpful to the supermarket and gotten a really nasty. Exactly what do they really taste. Like and You know uh-huh as researchers we get stuck in this thing where we're like okay. Well let's just bite into it and give it a one two nine rating but I didn't really want to do that because mostly I didn't trust myself I know like I'm one person. And what do I know about what you know. How great a peppers when the taste or not and also to be honest? It's hard for me to be unbiased because I'm out there in the field. I'm looking at all of these and I really want to choose varieties That perform really well for farmers so I wanted to remove myself for the from the question. Right and so I asked a lot of chefs that I knew. I work at a farmers market in Portland Oregon at that time also and I asked a bunch of chefs to get together and taste them with me and they tasted them and they basically started identifying the different things that they liked about does peppers that went beyond just the flavor but actually the shape and the size right because practicalities of structure that make something in the same way that a piece of meat or fish or whatever is or isn't appropriate for a particular recipe or or you know a method of cooking that's right it's like exactly yeah. Yeah and he's thinking about waste to like hijacked and seeing the kitchen all these things that are very important and we I and I thought. Oh my gosh are the parameters that are actually creating these new varieties of tomatoes peppers of everything. Do they know. So what this was wealth of information that the shafts and other value added You know if someone's making hot sauce or something or just the end user. Do they a spend enough time interacting with them to understand what the knees are right right so you wanted to plug these these participants who were working around these same vegetables but not together yet. You plugged them together and made culinary breeding network exactly. Yeah started You know organizing these events wants to bring individual these individuals all these different stakeholders and Arthur system together which has extended into the public? Because we all are you know stakeholders orders and the food system. Yeah so so you have this interesting perspective because you're working with all these leaders. Many of whom we gardner types hypes don't necessarily hear about one of their writers who may not even know who breaded or developed it but you're you're interacting with all of these people as all the stakeholders and you have the chefs and produce managers managers and all these other approach fires and and farmers and seed growers and breeders and so forth So you get to see and hear about a lot of things that are kind of coming down the pike or or that are getting their starting to trend even before we gardner see them in a catalog may be so like from your instagram. which is at culinary breeding network? I know some of the crops that you especially love and I mentioned the Ridichio the intro so tell us about that one for instance and is that something that you all ever talked about among this group this these steak steak. Oh Yeah Yeah Yes well I could go on forever. So you're going to have to cut me off. I'll just say shush me. I I think at all well so I am Sicilian and I grew up With a lot of food and a lot of Italian food so this is something that has just been something thing that we consumed but it is not a crop or a vegetable that has consumed much in the United States but working with chefs There is an appreciation for different flavors. Other than sweet. I mean this is something that we see all the time. Plant breeding is the trend keeps going toward breeding sweeter and sweeter things but there there you know there are earthy masses in earthy nece and their bitterness and all these things that actually should be appreciated. I feel like in vegetables. So there's that kind of culture food culture kind of side that I really like about radio but additionally it is something that is very important and the Pacific northwest as well as where where you are in the North East to be Consuming for individuals. You know the public to be consuming. Because that's what we grow in these areas in the winter. We cannot grow lettuce. This is what I see a lot of times like in the farmers market setting is all these people come out and support farmers and the height of the season. When of course everything is so wonderful fola tasty why would you go to the grocery store And farmers markets and a lot of areas very plentiful. So it's convenient. You can go there but as soon as it starts here. Are you know it starts raining. And it's cold. It's not so nice to go to the farmer's market people go back to the grocery store and they're buying lettuce and cucumbers from places that are very far away. Yeah so I really want people to eat things that are grown here all year round so we have a campaign called winter vegetables. There's a website you wanNA restful dot dot com ridiculous part of that so With the Ridichio then one of the flavors that you get from it is the bitter. Not Sweet you were just talking about Sweden vegetables being something that a lot of people breed for and so forth and it's more cold tolerant so it can grow at a time when say lettuce can't even in northern areas And I would say from the pictures picture on your instagram. The even though it's the leaves of their the they look like flowers so beautiful and they're all these sort of lavender and Mauve move shades and modeled and just beautiful beautiful. Do grow it in your Home Garden. Yes I do actually Yes it's very rewarding. It's exciting exciting. It's it's kind of like I think I've always loved growing garlic because you plant. Yeah and it's like you don't see it and then all of a sudden you have this wonderful thing that you pull out the ground well ridichio you grow and you can harvest the leaves and eat the leaves but it heads up and it can get a lot of frost damage on the outside and get really slimy and you think Oh God you know. I've lost it. It's it's done and then you get out there and you start pulling off. These slimy lease and you get down to just a hidden jewel rally little head. That is beautiful and perfect. Yeah do you have any favorite variety seat one. Tell us about real quick. Oh sure Well I so one thing I wanNA wanted to mention this one of the reasons. Also that hasn't been grown a lot is that it hasn't been a lot of resources for a seed So uprising seeds does have have They have several They they love radio yeah they do have several and this year. I think it's the first time that they have released. The is so Tina we now and that is one. That is a pink until people are really drawn to the beauty salon called. Yeah roasted over Netto. And there's several varieties of those but that's a really beautiful
The Dark History of the Pill
"Nineteen sixty. The birth control pill was first approved by the f._d._a. Is a contraceptive method. In the united states within four years. Were than four million women had used what it was then marketed under the name and novick now more than a half century later. The pill is the most common birth control method used by women but before any of that the people behind birth control pills needed to prove they were effective and to do that. They needed to test them on humans. Where are they chose to conduct. Those tests marks one of the most controversial and really discuss chapters in the history of drug that has come to symbolize women's men's liberation in the mid nineteen fifties. The first large-scale human trial of the pill was launched in puerto rico in a public housing project. There are multiple theories. Why puerto rico was chosen as a testing ground despite its heavy catholic population it. It was an easy flight from the u._s. Mainland there were no laws against birth control and the locations overcrowding and poverty made it especially attractive to a biologist named gregory agree pinkus who was concerned about global population control little was known about the drug's effects human trials began it had been tested on rats and rabbits in a small sampling of women in puerto rico. It was given to as many as fifteen hundred women over several years. The trial raised controversy at the time in continues to inspire to be three women the trials die but no autopsies were conducted and it remains unclear if their deaths were linked to the drugs at the time it was given in much higher doses than it is today the the choice of testing on poor people of color race comparisons to early instances of experimentation forced upon unknowing african americans and a study that involve deliberately liberally infecting hundreds of guatemalans with sexually transmitted diseases after all the puerto rican women were being given a drug whose side effects in humans were almost completely sweetly unknown but unlike in those cases the women in the trial largely understood why they were taking the pill and descriptions of the women. I'm in the study showed that they were eager to have control over their family. Planning one woman in the study was thirty years old and had ten children another had five children and a husband who was hospitalized frequently for mental illness before the pill their main option for preventing pregnancy with sterilization in the trial deter up some side effects in the first year about about twenty five percent of the women quit because they either lost interest or didn't want to take medication dizziness nausea were frequent complaints but the drug affective among women who didn't miss the dose in that effectiveness with key to its approved demand was clear when the f._d._a. fifty eight commissioner appeared on a radio show in nineteen fifty nine to discuss a cranberry recall callers instead questions about the pill it was approved the next gear and in the ensuing debates the pill has become a symbol of women's freedom the women puerto rico meanwhile we're left grappling with what happened to them and for decades they remain part of the trial until nineteen sixty four receiving the drug. Even as women across the united states complained about side effects including including an increased risk of blood clots and lawsuits were launched against the pills manufacturer to this day. Whether these puerto rican women women will go down in history as unwitting getting pigs or pioneers of women's liberation is still unclear.

"Heavyweight, grand prix fish announced last week that he will meet Fyodor only Netco on January twenty six at the forum in Inglewood California, and be final to see who will become the Bill, our heavyweight champion. If he wins that fight, he will then become Bill tours. I ever double champion, light heavyweight champion in built or he is Ryan Darth Vader Ryan. How're you doing great. What about you? I'm doing really well. Thanks for doing this Ryan. By the way, when you had your intro before the Mitchell fight, two Fridays ago, they had a little like Star Wars thing in there. Was that the first time that you've done that before? They, they kind of like a little something gonna be account down show. I didn't get to see also getting. Yet. Remember you doing that, so you didn't. You don't even hear the music when you're about to walk out. Well, like they've always in the music. I hear the music. I like the the dog in the beginning, China children that song between the back, whatever, but other, no, they get. We shine a little something. We're in Andhra with the head kind of I dunno. TV behind me when I'm walking out at all. What's fascinating is the fact that you're like the complete antithesis of of Darth Vader rarely, just such like happy guy, you know, kind of nice guy. You know what I mean? Is that why you got the nickname to begin with. Thing. You know, it was kinda from Brooklyn breslin days on this guy called me, and I went to went to another. I went to this call mcgarth also kinda stopped on down there. So what was when you signed up for this tournament? And I hate to to use the word easy, but it does feel like it has been relatively easy for you. Did you think it would go this way like that it would be such a walk in the park for you? I fight, you know, obviously you never go into any fifteen seconds. This punch three and knocking out more than spied Novick. Yet. Heavyweight date day can't towns which putting given to turn the hat winning. The whole thing was a favorite and they're the best, you know, heck weights. And right now you don't go out there and in kicking on, grinding them out. You'll be out of the. I saw myself walk through so many different matchups in the kitchen, not in in day the different styles. Really that I was going to have to fight finish investigator hands. You can, you know, update for big heavy, you heavyweight news in the, I always thought I was going to turn in of Trinite. But yeah, I mean, nobody predicted knockout. I. I was gonna handle that differently on the ground, and that's what I did. And you know, I'm, I'm join us so far considering how well it's going for you indicate, and I'm sure not having to wait cut for the first time in a very long time is a pleasure as well. Is there any chance that you just stay at heavyweight pass the tournament? You know, I don't know. Originally. When is two bucks and drop down the same. They lie. Heavyweight and descend the heavyweight on. You know. But who knows when that actually happens? I go out there and win this. I win this fight. There might be more intriguing matchup at heavyweight or Bill tour might want me to say or miss more sense to take a heavyweight title five. So right now I I want to, I want to different bowl 'cause they fire to me is not that really difficult. At the same time. We'll see when we get there. Like, what do you walk around at. About thirty five right now. Okay. Well, so I mean probably dating back to when you were a kid like the last time you probably didn't have to cut weight, so to speak quote unquote, probably like a decade or two decades ago, right? I mean, even, you know? Yeah. I was in high speed, Tony, Jimmy page, always walking around two twenty down to one ninety. One ninety seven. Get down to the lower than that.
