Heres Why Tesla Is so Important
"Everybody raum our here and today we're gonna be talking about a couple of really important reports. First tesla's most recent impact report which has a ton of fascinating details and it won't go through the highlights. There that release also coincided with a huge new report on climate change by the will spend some time on that as well and then we've got a few other quick hits of news which will run through at the beginning. Quick look at tesla stock another relatively low volume day to day to start the week off just under fifteen million shares traded but tussles up two point one percent on the day to seven hundred and thirteen dollars. Seventy six cents that compared to the nasdaq up about two tenths of a percent. Cosstalk did see an upgrade today from jeffries and almost philippa who schwa- upgrading from neutral to buy which as we've talked about upgrades like that where they're actually rewriting. The stock those are more significant to analysts than press targeted adjustments. But that being said he did increase his price. Target from seven hundred dollars per share up to eight hundred fifty. From the note quote valuing tesla is as challenging as ever we raise our discounted cash flow base price target from seven hundred dollars to eight hundred fifty dollars on higher profitability and accelerated growth. While at thirty five percent five year compound annual growth rate. we remain below tessa. Guidance of fifty percent as trend growth desa currently trades on nine times revenue and sixty two times earnings before interest and tax a level disconnected with auto multiples but in our view more consistent with net growth lack of legacy issues and wider addressable markets including energy generation and storage and one. Quick little note here. Just because i do see these inflated allot tesla has guided for greater than fifty percent growth compounded annually for vehicle deliveries. That doesn't necessarily mean revenue would grow at fifty percent. Plus obviously it very well could but that's not what tesla has specified so to me. It's not super clear but it does look like in this case. Jefferies is comparing their revenue forecasts tesla's vehicle delivery guidance and tennessee that a lot so just wanted to point that out next year. We've got an update on giga texas. From joe tag mayer. He does drawn flyovers there and remember last week. We had talked about him here. He that tussle was going to be doing a test. Production run for the mentawai next week. Which would not be this week

"Away. Great. Yeah, That's a great question. Yes. One last question. Um, controversy on covering an A C unit in the winter to keep the snow and ice and stuff out. Generally, What I've done is I've taken a small type. I've covered the top only to the edges. And then I put bungee cords around it. So it's nice and snug and the winter winds and snow doesn't blow it off the top, But I've always left the sides open because I've historically learned had been told you should let the air circulate around it. Is that a good idea to cover the top only or nothing at all. Or what are your last thoughts on that place? You have not done a thing wrong there either, Okay? One lot of a lot of people cover the top. And you're right. It needs air circulating throughout that central that condensing unit because when you cover it, and you cover the sides The sun beating down in the winter time will cause condensation inside the unit and you'll have corrosion on the copper joints. Boy, You're good, so you could create harm that way, but everything you've done Is according and I'm just one quick comment. Those people who make the covers you know that in case the whole thing. Sure have. They sure have made a lot of money making those covers all these years, haven't they?.

Express them over what's factual what's real and not be irrational and not be out of control By all means imo. Show people your emotions be able to feel your emotions yourself but have try to feel them after you have the facts and by when you're doing that it's a much clearer much more a exact way to live life and what you're emoting over now becomes healthy. Yeah you know what i think. That's one you could almost Focus a host show around the riding in time around because a lot of us. Just go straight off our emotions. I mean we you start with domestic violence or any type of violence. It's just straight out of emotion. Not even thinking just. I felt a lot of emotion. And this is what i did. Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh that one is a big one. That one is the big one and i. It really hamstrings a lot of people. Why why is it important talked about this earlier. And i just hope that the people who listen to this show live now and in the archives. I just really really hope it reaches the right people but why is it important. You mentioned this earlier in the show. Why is it important to actually slow down to enjoy life. Why is that so important. Well you know what if you just look at that. Just even on the surface level Everything we do goes real fast. So i in this culture but what happens is you know we go from. We're so concerned about getting from point. A to point b but life does not exist from at point on only at a and point b that span of time between them. That's where all the living occurs and you know we've become destination. People keep writing about that but life is not about destinations. It's a journey day journey and the stuff of life. All of life is lived in those particular places every day moment by moment. When you slow down you get to experience all those moments. That's what life is all about. You know the old take your time and smell the coffee or the roses or whatever it may be. It's all that that ability to experience all the seconds of your life and if you're willing to do that and then work with the although seconds of your life you can create a beautiful wonderful journey. But we can't do it going fast because going fast has us going from one quick destination to another and we're not satisfied when we get to that destination and unfortunately by the time we get to the destination at most of the time isn't what we thought it was going to be anyway so we get disappointed a lot. Oh my god. I actually heard. I've heard i heard somebody say that. The the funny thing about him is. We never like where we are. I don't care where we are is always.

Sharpen Your Trust Edge
"Everytime trust went up costs problems skepticism went down. Let's just talk about the simply for your for your listeners. So think about this tech someone you trust. How long does that take your done right now. Try to tech someone. You don't trust a long. does that take are. How are they gonna take this. That tip forevermore so we'll send you have this cost of time or we think of cost of. I talk about where i grew up. I don't know if you've ever seen one of these Mr olsen out in the middle of nowhere minnesota had this veggie stand where yet as beautiful End of his long quarter-mile driveway. He's a beautiful vegetables but even though is a quarter mile from his house get a bucket of cash and yet nobody stood at the stand. So what you're supposed to do as you make your change and pay what you owe any. Take your veggies right so the whole stand is built on trust. Somebody will call it. The honor system trust system right. What's what's the efficiency in this case. He saves money because he doesn't have to pay anybody to be there. Save time in essence because people can just take and go they can grab it. They want just go and interestingly he had incredibly loyal customers not just because they loved his veggies but they they love this experience. So you know in this case trust just gave him time and money and so when i say expensive and it's it's everything but it always is a cost. There's always an expense to a lack of trust. Seager said well a lack of their caused me innovation because that team doesn't trust each other so creativity went down and ovation down. They won't share ideas so lack of trust in that classroom. Oh well now. The the there's no psychological safety so students don't learn or whatever the if there's no trust in in the marketing message then all sudden you know you you don't sell so what i'm hearing you say is like the lack of trust or the the strength of trust. There's a lever in a relationship between trust in almost everything from productivity to profitability to even the depth of the relationships that we can grow. So i guess when. I when i hear you talk about that. It seems kind of like the lead domino for everything else is that when trust is strong and intact so much more becomes possible. Can you share a little bit about that. That's that's exactly what i would argue. And i would even say maybe the leading indicator. So you know in business roy. He's looking at what are the leading indicators lagging indicators and i would argue trust is always the leading indicator people think they have a different This is the big problem and this was the big finding in the original research. That first half of it at least was it. We think we have a leadership problem. We don't the only reason. I follow leader not is trust getting sales problem. No the only reason i buy or not unless it's a commodity something to do with trust. I said it before the only way to amplify marketing messages. Increase trust the only way to increase innovations increase. Trust team so y- this is the leading domino's perfect way of saying it because it's be leading indicator to efficiency and that was a big binding by the way at the time. When i started that first half of the research i was just looking at what's unique about the most successful leaders organizations of all time and i define success as impact and a financial component. So success wasn't just financial but it was success and this positive impact and it kept coming back to trust. So you know that. That the success in a attrition or retention. It's a trust issue engagement. It's a trust issue. I often say this is never a communication issue. You know at the core. It's the type of communication because communications happening all the time. And that's where we get to the pillars of trust and how we actually create the kind of communication high trust medication. They're talking about well. And i love even your example of text because if i receive an email from someone that i do not trust. I read it very differently than someone that i do. So on. elite ends. Jack's or you just questioning like is not what they really meant or and they're the rationalization and it's just such a like wrestling with. What is the reality with match up there. It's hard to see through people's intentions because there's a barrier to where i am and were they are. So how do i bridge that gap. Like if i know. There's someone in my in my world that i don't have a lot of trust what's one thing i can do. Well first of all over all my work it really is about. What can i do to be trusted or bill. So people will say to me. I want to trust that person. More like that guided that terrible thing to me. And i want to trust them. You know you trust them for what they do. So as an example if this person is late all the time. I should trust them to be on time. I trust them to be late. That's healthy. That's why that's good so i like what you said about bringing back to me. So what can i do. And that's where we get to the bills of trust. It's it could be any mix of them. But i have to do what i can do to build dresser maybe this is a little bit To the example at least where some people say because we're all imperfect how do i rebuild trust rebuild. It once have lost it right so i can give one quick idea there in that comes under the commitment color. Here's what we know. The apology never rebuild trust. I'll give an example people. Think that you know. I'm sorry. i'm why i apologized right. I said i was sorry A friend of mine's the from the netherlands came to america ebony. A few weeks. I said what's the first thing you notice in america and he said one of the three days i said yeah he said i i noticed. She got a bunch of lying apologizes. They all say they're sorry and they don't mean it and he said what do you mean he said. Yeah my team is. I'm sorry i'm late but they're late every time. And so this this one little takeaway here but it is important that even our research showed that this year the number one component retention is keeping promises. And that's the same with rebuilding. Trust the only way to rebuild. Trust is to make an keep a new commitment. Wait save out again. Because i think especially with trust is lost. There's the sense of urgency to rebuild it as quickly as possible. There's something broken. I wanna fix it. So that's generally where for me. At least that policy comes in and just quick to respond like. Oh lemme just patch this up with a quick apology. I'll make it sincere and move on so tell like unpack that a little bit. Yeah okay so first of all. Let me say this. The apology opens the door. I am not saying. don't apologize. we show humility. We apologize back cracks. The door it invites the bad actually to heal the relationship. These people don't trust again unless you make and keep a new commitment so if you because there are people i'm sorry and that that okay you get it i understand your relationship but that doesn't mean i trust them again to do this thing or to accomplish this or to finish that or to whatever it is unless they are willing to make an keep a new commitment. Trust is rebuilt by making a commitment in the you know in the book. I did chapter this for companies loss Step process and. And you know there's a lot you can do as a company wants them. Case studies of of companies that have actually rebuild trust but even the big companies. Why can't individual it finally comes down to making an keeping nuke amendment if you want to rebuild. Trust sir apology though. Good to know. Starting in the right place and i think what you said is really powerful because words. They opened the door. They're in a crack and that by giving that apology and then making that commitment it really does reinforce that my word is worth it and that what i say i'm gonna do. I'm gonna follow through on. Because i am trustworthy and because i care about that relationship

Breaking the Sugar Habit | Dishing Up Nutrition Podcast
"Good morning everybody. i am brittany vincent. I'm also a registered dietitian. I work individually with clients. Teach many of our different nutrition classes but one of my favorite classes to teach is breaking the sugar habit so if eating sugar is a difficult habit for you to break i really recommend taking this online class for only twenty five dollars you can go to weight and wellness dot com. Click on nutrition classes at the top of our website. And i really think the most important reason nowadays to kick the sugar habit is because controlling your blood. Sugar plays a key role in the risk. You may have contracting and then the outcome if you get the cove it or if you get krona virus infection because studies have found that the way people eat in the. Us often result in a weakened immune system because sugar process. Carbs will actually slow down How your white blood cells work and that's a serious problem. Yeah and it makes it so important for us to kick that sugar habit. Research has found that sixteen teaspoons of sugar a day reduces the ability of a special kind of white blood cell. Called neutral fills to help your body fight off infections particularly those caused by certain bacteria and viruses to. I know you listeners. Are saying i never eat. Sixteen of sugar is an obscene amount. Well let's take a look at where you might be getting all the hidden sugar and you're gonna find out it's pretty darn easy to get sixteen teaspoons to. Here's a pretty common scenario. You make your daily drive throughout your favorite for your morning. Vanilla lock and then a muffin. Just sons delicious especially with the lot tastes. You grab one of those. while you're vanilla. Lattakia has seven teaspoons of sugar and the muffin contains eight and a half teaspoons. So you're starting your day off with fifteen and a half teaspoons of sugar with just one quick trip through the drive thru. You're already at your sugar limit for the entire day in starting your day like that i can almost guarantee you're gonna eat more sugar right because as we know the more sugar you eat the more sugar as i was introducing myself Earlier i mentioned that i am trying to prevent my children from developing a sugar habit. So here's some interesting news from food business newsletter. In the fall. Pumpkin spice latte as are very popular but they typically do not attract new customers but rather they appeal to the former and existing customers who purchase them more frequently. Pumpkin spice latte today. Lovers tend to be women who are forty five years or older. So what does that say that. Sounds like my demographic will not quite but it says that basically once you have that pumpkin spice latte those are the people that are going to continue to buy that particular item. And they're going to keep coming back for more so i don't want my kids to even taste pumpkin. Spice latte day or a peppermint flavor or the chocolate mocha or any of those types of sweet drinks with fifty grams of carbs or more per per cup. I mean shoot. My kids have enough energy. I certainly don't need to give him that much. Sugar much less a caffeinated burger. I drink so remember. Just sixteen teaspoons of sugar a day. That can slow your immune function. If you have one pumpkin spice latte with twelve and a half teaspoons of sugar and then say like brittany was saying it. Sounds really good to have something with it. Say you decided by a slice of coffee house. Banana nut bread which has thirteen teaspoons of sugar. You have taken in twenty five and a half teaspoons of sugar all before ten. Am in the morning and like we said once you start the day that way it's gonna keep on that's right. The american heart association recommends limiting your sugar intake to only six teaspoons of sugar per day. Just six that is not much at all no and today. We know that over. A third of all calories come from sugar and white flour and our bodies do have great resilience but frankly i bodies are not able to cope with that amount of sugar and flour on a regular basis. And i do think you know most of you know the story about sugar and what it does to us but sometimes you have to hear it many many times for it to actually sink in. So i'm going to repeat what you may have heard before but shit just reminds me just because they've been talking about my kids. You know we as adults were just like kids right. We have to hear the same things over and over and over again before they start trade especially if you love sugar because you don't want to accept the truth now we do what we do we like it. Yeah yeah so but we know sugar gives you that initial high then you crash. Then you crave you want that high again and again over and over happens you're on that roller coaster and sugar stresses your adrenal glands get more anxious moody fatigue sets in your brain. Your body just start to not function as well however. The long term side effects are really the real trouble troublemakers. That recap vic on your health and often times. People don't even know that that's happening inside their body So before you grab one of those sugary treats that you received from a friend during the holidays. Truce and i want to share some of the health problems. You're inviting to come into the first. One is decreased immunity. Which makes you more susceptible to infectious. Bacteria and viral infections. Right and research suggests that that susceptibility happens. Because that sugar will it inhibits vitamin c entering into your white blood cells. So the more sugar you eat the less productive. Your white blood cells are and the more likely you are to get sick. Sugar also directly affects your chocolates ride number it's sugar and processed carbs not fat that stimulate your liver liver's production of triglycerides. So many people really don't realize the triglycerides are linked to stroke two heart disease and of course obesity a usually suggest to my clients. Say look at their checklists number on their blood chemistry panel. Don't just silk the total cholesterol number. Look that that whole breakdown. You'll find the glass rides and your triglycerides level is the fat in your bloodstream. And many experts believe that your triglycerides number is really the best predictor of heart disease and stroke so the number we recommend the optimal number is seventy five or less in. We've had clients with numbers over two thousand bright It's crazy but at the same time i've had clients in a matter of a couple of months drastically reduces so. That's possible we. I just read an email from a listener. Who eats a weight and wellness way and she also exercises daily. She just received her blood chemistry panel and her reckless rides. Were twenty three. Well yeah that is. That's number to strive for as you've just heard and as we all know we have these intellectual reasons in our head based on science for why we should eliminate sugar and carbs from our diet. But it's hard because sugar is sneaky and it finds its way into foods that we wouldn't even consider to be high in sugar for example pizza. Would you consider to be a high sugar food absolutely no because it's savory right it's not sweet. The stock prices of domino's pizza have risen ninety nine percent in the last three years. My gosh and i wonder how much of that was in twenty twenty. Yes but we will talk a little bit more about that when we come back. You are listening to dishing up nutrition. The holidays are over. So perhaps it's time to break your sugar habit because eating excess sugar is certainly worse for you. While we are all experiencing the ongoing cova nineteenth stress the center for disease control and prevention reports that people with underlying health conditions such as type two diabetes heart disease high blood sugar and obesity are at an increased risk for complications. If you become infected with covid nineteen we will share ways that we help clients reduce their sugar consumption with the hope that it will reduce their risk of serious health complications.

"Love the heat. My leftovers too long and get tomato sauce on offer. Walls of my negro ave dell is obviously being very creative here with us pronunciation any words that you personally pronounce not normally. This is nothing on this scale. Unfortunately or fortunately for me i do. I feel like sapporo. Even i said at tentatively as a brought it up now. I'm the beer. Yes yes. I order it wrong every time and then i psych myself out while i'm doing it and i try to correct mid sentence and there's just like sort of an awkward silence. I think the i say the way that just said i think sapporo. Yeah but i think some sometimes i say sapparo but still as we're talking right now i'm myself that one is right and the other isn't have you been corrected in public like how. How do you even know. Because i feel like a lot of times people just let you say it however you want to say it. I get corrected. The second that the waiter leaves the table somebody else at the table is like what is wrong with you. Know that's fair. That's safe the right way. Like dopey weird. That's been me before for sure. So that's i mean that's that's a bad example because it's like a it's not a household item. It's like a very specific name. So you know maybe more of an inherent challenge than having to say like to- oster for toaster so i don't even know how you would mess refrigerator but it would be very kid. It's po- it's it's more syllables than meco ave so What does this word for you. What are what are your your trouble-spots here. Well okay. so. I guess that we have to define like i don't have any creative different ways to say things but I i feel like i say on. Say on like it's two syllables. Instead of ion a lot of people say that was an accent. But you know. I think i have come to accept it. An honor that pronunciation and the second one that you did was very like. I just came from long island. I don't see. I don't even hear it when i say the word but i've been the person judging a lot of people when they say words wrong which i am trying to be better about. It's just you know we were raised in society. That wanted you to feel superior for any reason and that was one of the reasons i had but i used to date this guy. We were at a restaurant and he ordered a keen wa salad but he said quinoa the lady like you know. Send it back to him. And she's like a keen salad in the and this was satisfying was because we had blake had a very small sort of couples quarrel about the pronunciation before she came over. Because i was like it's definitely qinhua. He didn't believe me and then he said it that way and i will always laugh. At the time. I was rate also growing up in kentucky. I worked out of his only shout out zoli. We're eating a limited breadsticks. I guess but people income through the drive through in the ass for pini pasta all the time and every time i would like laugh and they would get more and more indignity like. What's wrong with wanting pini. Did you do something to it. I'm like no. That's just not what it is that the truth isn't you didn't do anything to pini. Because you're so. That's that's worse that we went from meco ave which i thought was bad to quinoa probably worse. I think pini is number one top list. Yeah yeah it's pretty terrible. We'll just like that. We've checked our temps stay safe. Try to say the words the way they were meant to be pronounced. But if not make it very entertaining. That's all i.

"Police should be reopened in fatal instance. Yeah this is a big one. The police really aren't happy about and go and has already said that there are at least four cases involving the lapd long beach. Police gardena police and torrance. Police that he will be reopening and one final thing on gas cohn who is an honorary wad squad member even if he doesn't wanna be. He's aiming to use a diversion program for first time offenders of small crimes associated with mental illness or poverty so diversion programs basically give the offenders probation volunteer work in exchange for the crime being expunged from the record. This should go a long way towards keeping people out of a system. That's difficult to escape once inside so we'll have to keep an eye on how implemetation of all goes but it's really good to see that gascoyne is already working to make good on his campaign promises. Yeah that it is and as we mentioned. This is part of a larger wave of newly elected. Da's that are ready to make big changes in other places as well. Yeah in austin.

"It's wednesday december ninth. I'm kelly hughes. And i'm getting resonated and this is what a day where we are sad that we've had fewer opportunities to hear christmas music in big box stores. This year just says christmas. A bunch like christmas christmas christmas rate. I feel like. I haven't heard anybody say christmas that many times it succession. And it's actually hurting my holiday spirit. This is the war on christmas. That has been talked about for years and years. And it's it's finally here. And i don't like it. They really brought their army. Say show a blue wave of progressive. Da's getting sworn in then some headlines. But i the latest. I should go during the vaccination is this and then there's been times asking me questions about this net. Nobody interesting i- cbs news new and they said we'll come true because couldn't damn the repub michael savage leads. I'm here now. And i got inside. And they duly put me list image from has rather than us to lunch and came back and they really didn't tour. I didn't know the need lou guardian. Come out that was ninety one year. Old martin kenyan talking about his fairly mundane day including difficulty finding parking a nasty lunch and oh of course being among the first people in the uk to receive the pfizer bio intech corona virus vaccine. Yesterday was filled with a lot of these hopeful anecdotes including a guy. Legitimately named william shakespeare being among the first people to get the vaccine and it comes at a dark moment in the pandemic specifically for the us the uk and europe. Yes so this is the slow start of us. Getting out of this one william shakespeare at a time for this particular vaccine. The uk has enough at the moment for an estimated four hundred thousand people. Their population is around sixty seven million. So it's going to take quite some time to pull this off. But one of the other things that kenyan show during his interview. The caught some attention. Was this small vaccination card. That's meant to indicate that he had received the first dose while they are not. Id cards per se. The new york times reported there some preemptive questions about whether they could be used to essentially divide society up between people who have and haven't been vaccinated. Granting the former access at the ladder might not get so health officials in the uk have said that they are just for reminding people when they should actually go back in after three weeks for the second shot but as another challenge that the uk in every country will face in maintaining these records for the entire vaccination process and also the idea of some sort of immunity. passport has been questioned by scientists as well. Yeah and that's because we don't know how long immunity will last or just how all these vaccines might prevent the spread. That is right. All the pfizer and madonna have measured so far is good. Their vaccines are at preventing people from becoming sick with covid nineteen and the good news is the appear to be very very effective at protecting against symptoms particularly the worst ones but it remains possible for now that could still occur. Which is why some epidemiologists are saying that mass would still be needed after you get vaccinated but there was other news yesterday for the approval process of the pfizer vaccine in the us. The fda put out a bunch of documents ahead of a meeting later this week and one of the key findings was that the vaccine appears to protection within ten days of getting. Just the first dose. That's not to say you don't need the second one. The efficacy goes way up after that it would be like stopping short at the fifty yard line but it could help. If we're looking at a situation where our medical systems are still overloaded in the next few months also. According to these documents the vaccine worked well for participants of different ages body weights and race. So we're going to find out more in the next few days but one other thing. I should mention that is important to note from the reporting. That's out on the so far. A lot of the volunteers felt somewhat sick. After the second dose of some experts wanted to raise that and ensure the doctors tell their patients so they don't freak out am glad that they said so. Because i've been you know hypochondriac. And ever since i found out about that have been waiting to happen so if i started to feel sick i would have thought. It was me Yup well that's pfizer. Which seems like it's going to get approved here based on everything we've seen and read but as we talked about yesterday. The trump administration reportedly passed up the chance to lockdown more doses of it. So where does that leave us with everything else. That's in the works. Yes indeed Just remind us again that that well the advisory committee that's gonna meet this week on. Pfizer is expected to meet during next so those are two very promising ends. There than there is astra zeneca which we haven't talked about in a while and there's a lot going on so according to the new york times the united had made a deal with the company for about three hundred million doses of their potential vaccine. But there have been a lot of problems along the way and one of the issues. According to this report is the astrazeneca was to be the company that was supplying the us with a big portion of our overall supply so the uncertainty with him combined with the fis of decision from the trump administration has made the timeline of having the whole population of the us vaccinated by the summer. A little bit murkier. All right so you mentioned issues with astrazeneca. Let's explain those issues. Okay so here are some. Apparently astrazeneca didn't disclose that. They had to pause their trials for safety. Reasons during a conversation with the fda in september seems like a thing that should have come up so while it is less expensive and easier to store that led to some obvious trust issues here and also has slowed the company down overall at this point. They haven't finished unrolling people in their trial and this week published full data from their trials in the scientific journal. The lancet revealing that the vaccine is about seventy percent effective overall a solid result but less than dern advisor have shown so far. But there's still tons of questions about it namely how effective it is for older populations a big question and confusing finding about some greater success among participants. Who got a half dose. And then a full dose. Anyway there is a lot more to impact your so include too good links to all of that in our show notes on more of the backstory but in other news. Let's talk about what's going on. With district attorney's voters have swept a group of progressive. Da's into officer and they're are already starting to make some pretty big changes. Yeah so let's start in la which is the biggest prosecutor's office in the country and has the biggest jail system to this week. The new da. George gas officially took office was backed by black. Lives matter to oust the now former. Da jackie lacey. Who was backed by the police. Union immediately upon swearing in guests going announced a list of progressive policy changes including an indication. Bail ceasing prosecution of juveniles as adults inning. The three strikes law which basically means that if you have three petty convictions you can't be given a punishment as harsh as a murderer or rapist. He also wants to review thousands of old cases to see if his office should ask the courts to reduce passes or overturn past convictions. Yes surrogate to work. So let's focus on cash bail for a moment. Why is this. Change such a big deal. Oh it's a huge deal for a lot of reasons. Guests going himself said quote. We know that our system of money bail is unsafe as it is unjust. The rich can be dangerous while the poor can pose zero threat to society which is true. The amount of money in your bank account should not impact whether you stay in jail or not in statistically cash bail has been disproportionately imposed on black and latinx next people but in the immediate it also has implications for who will survive the covid nineteen pandemic study from the university of texas found that eighty percent of cova deaths in texas. Jails where people who weren't even convicted of a crime so that's not to say that you should be forced to get covid if he were convicted of a crime. But it just goes to show you that these systems have real impacts in also goes to show just how quickly change can be made when we elect people who give a shit. Technically a judge can still impose bail. Since it's still legal under state law but judges usually defer to the prosecutor and guess cones prosecutors will no longer recommend it except in the case of a homicide or other violent crime prosecutors will ask to have defendants kept in custody. Got it okay. And another big announcement out of la is that gasco and wants to create a use of force review board that is tasked with citing if a case against the.
Union of Concerned Scientists' Dr. Rachel Cleetus Discusses What the Biden Administration Needs to Do to Address the Climate Catastrophe
"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David intra cosso during this podcast discussed with the union of concerned. Scientists climate energy programs policy director. Dr rachel cletus. What the biden administration needs to address mitigate the effects of the worsening climate crisis. dr cletus. welcome to the program. Hello david thank you so much for having me. dr cletus. bile is of course posted on the podcast website. This is my fifteenth climate crisis related interview on background. The climate catastrophe continues to accelerate hemispheric carbon concentrations are now measured at four hundred seventeen parts per million the greatest concentration of carbon in our species existence. Not surprisingly there's a ninety nine percent chance. Twenty twenty will be among the top five warmest years. Two thirds chance for sixty six percent chance that will be the warmest year on record. This year is also experiencing a record-breaking atlantic hurricane and with thirty named storms to date and record breaking wildfires in the arctic that is warming at upwards of three times the rate of the rest of the planet the albedo effect from the loss of summarized will be equal to the release of one tree tons of carbon equivalents in the atmosphere. This amount approximates forty percent of all human caused ghg emissions. Since seventeen fifty in addition northern permafrost that holds almost twice as much carbon dioxide is currently in the atmosphere his thawing seventy years earlier than previously predicted the plan is also experiencing unprecedented biological violation. Vector-borne diseases including covid nineteen continued to proliferate and the trump administration in denying scientific reality has rescinded approximately one hundred environmental regulations that i discussed with sabin centers. Michael burger last may and finally listeners are where he federal court ruled earlier. This year. that americans do not have a constitutional right to survivable climate. So with that welcome. Dr cletus again were here discuss climate policy under the vitamin station. So before diving into that. A doctor cletus Regarding my brief assessment. Is there anything. You'd like to add or alternative. I can i alternatively i can ask the question. The union put out a document a few years ago called the title the world scientists warning to humanity. so if you prefer to answer The ladder what was in that warning. I think you've just made out a very thorough set of reality that were tainted with respect to the climate crisis. Things that climatize this morning house project are now actually happening around a severe climate crisis. If you're now it's no longer about some distant problem and it's affecting us here in the united states and around the world you mentioned the record breaking hurricane season we've seen the cocaine season moby seem pretty extraordinary type wounds on the other side of her world with the teams being. Hit back to back. In the last few weeks we've seen extraordinary heatwaves around the world in europe in asia flooding And see living wage which is inexhaustible continuing slow moving disaster that many low-lying things around the world are facing Including as in the us Especially in on that. He's been go goes. We're at a point. Now where we are rapidly running out of time to address very new classes and as you pointed out as well we actually earn a moment for our nation is facing colliding. Place the covid nineteen pandemic as you mentioned but we also have a rapidly worsening economic crisis. We have a crisis democrats in our country. That is being made there In this moment so all of these colliding to creative patrician where underlying social economic disparities than discrimination being exacerbated and a climate crisis is holding a very inequitable way Around the world and here in the us so what we do now what the biden administration does and what future us administration to is very very important. The most significant difference. We're going to see is that we now have an administration that recognizes the fines will be guided by the signs and how they respond to the climate crisis instead of an administration that basically lied relentless me about the existence of Munchies the climate crisis that even the reality the cova christ who actually worked to make them more worse. So now we have a president who actually five instead of sidelining them and silence them yes. thank goodness. I will say As had been speculated trump's legacy will probably be moreover his Calling the crisis a hoax and of course Rescinding these operas of hundred epa mostly epa regulations. Let's get into What we might expect from the biden administration. We could start with. I did intend or ask you What did the biden campaign pledge to address the climate crisis. But let's let's pass on. That says now he's been elected you wrote In a union of concerned scientists blog post. I believe it was dated november seventh What the by presi means Relative to the climate crisis you identified Various aspects are measures that the biden ministrations should take under the title wet. President biden's should do on climate. You could note a few of these relative to what you think would be most productive coming from a biden administration. What's most important for the vitamin that administration to extend a very clear strong and early signal. They're going to take this challenge seriously. They wanna aggressive with all of that. They have so. I know that maybe have pointed out that In our democratic took them eighty the actions that the president together with the action congress that will really allow for full Aggressing of problems like climate crisis. And no doubt congress. Must say it's hard if we're going to get your They should have and comprehensive action. But there's a loss at the biden expiration can and should do on its own and much of that can be done fairly quickly Within the first hundred days of the administration taking power one quick forward and simple thing that everyone has been talking about is of course are getting back in the remount of the trump administration on november. four The final the us from the of women that is an action that puts us on the sidelines and uniquely isolated on the world stage where the only country that has actually stepped away from the therapy. We need to get back An after the responsible major nation of the world i together with other nations to raise invasion around a dozen the global climate crisis. And i miss fans there's no different the covid nineteen pandemic. we can solve the global complex challenges only when the app in concerts that other nations. So that's pretty straightforward It's not enough to just get back. In paris agreement we have to borrow A with domestic action. That shows that you are gonna take this seriously. We have to set signs and gone goals cutting He in mission here in the us. The ipc record and twenty eighteen all down some pretty cure now. Metrics are the growth of the global community would have to meet to stay below two degrees here. Aiming for one point five degrees celsius about pre industrial levels the temperature increase so. She do contribute. Its fair share to that. The us must be on a bad day to get to net zero emissions. No later than twenty for before. I'm have to be well on that. By twenty thirty having our mission show By twenty thirty to do that we're going to need action across the economy. Has inspector the biden administration should be directing every federal agency To make sure that they're incorporating climate science and their actions that they're looking for opportunities to go cut emissions as the bill climate billions to the climate impacts that are unfortunately already locked in Their action that the administration can take to the deputy voters and regulatory action to cut heat trapping emissions cosby economy. They should do so There are a number of very aggressive. Compensation decorative voter that Should be giving both back and one thing that is the has not recognize the now taking these kinds of ambitious actions requires leadership not just from the president but from his gatherer competitive agency. You'll be watching me. What appointments look like we need to have people in charge of these agencies and appointed to cabinet positions that recognize how climate change touch with every aspect of our economy and our lives and there needs to be david into their world view.
That Time I Broke The Law
"I'm answering my question. I right yeah. Yeah so this. This happened years ago. And i don't know that i even really understand what happened. But i tell this story to my audience in various places on instagram and the podcast. And it's the story of where. I made a mistake on multiple levels. I mean i made a mistake in decision making stake in potentially violating regulations. Which maybe you can help. Straighten me out on a real quickly. The the story was. I was doing a charity flight for my daughter's school in which i had rented a very fancy airplane and a couple that was wealthier than i had been money for me to go. Take them on a sunset flight and run over the san francisco bay and doing my thing and i do it once a year so i have the route pretty much down. I know exactly where i can fly. It'll be one hour on the hobbs. It's not gonna break my wallet and they're all they're going to be very happy and here. I was coming around the east side of the bay. I had to transition the oakland class. Charlie so i arranged flight following with nor cal approach and i had flown through the charlie so i was no longer in the charlie. I'm flying echo. Airspace pointed essentially southeast. And i want. I wanted to turn to the west because that was where i needed to go to get back to the home base and have this be one hour and air traffic control. Says you know turn left which is not the way i want to turn left heading zero zero so i understand why they have arrival traffic. I can see a lot of that traffic. I'm situationally aware. I'm listening to the radio. But i'm headed now in the entirely. You know the opposite i to be going and they're taking me pretty far out and i fly this way just keeping my mouth shut for a little while until finally i say you know what i'm just going to terminate radar service because i know what they need. I'm gonna get low. I'm going to go back in your class. Echo airspace go straight to the delta tower. And i said to him you know. We'd like to request the termination of radar service to which they said unable and i've never heard that before ever and we can come back to it but one question is are they. Are they legally able to say that. I can't terminate radar service which is an optional service. And so i. I fly that way a bit longer. And then here's a probably the first real mistake. I made this hazardous attitude in these sort of flares. Up this anti authority attitude and against what i would say his better judgment. I just said you know what. I'm going to turn off the radio squad. Twelve hundred and go straight to the tower. So i switched the frequency. I squad one zero zero and maneuver at a low altitude back to the class delta tower and on landing i leave the runway taxi clear the runway and the tower says we have a possible pilot. I have a phone number. Advise ready to copy you get that sinking feeling in your stomach at that point right. Yeah i think the sinking feeling started before that. But yeah this was definitely Because flying back. I realized this is not the way to behave and not the way to fly anyway. I i pull off the runway. I write down the phone number and And i tell my students this as story so for anybody is listening. Hasn't heard that story. I use an example of how those hazardous rivoli live inside of us. It's not like you meet somebody who there's the macho guy. Ooh there's the anti-authority guy You know under the right pressure in the right circumstance we all should be aware of these possible hazardous attitudes that have known to show themselves as patterns in the industry and things that can really affect all of us including me. I'm not immune. And i'm thinking this through as i tie up the airplane in the couple goes home and i'm cool myself down. I remember the new compliance philosophy which is another thing that i teach my students that the faa has a has a compliance philosophy. That's no longer a subjective thing. It's written down its policy. They are going to work to offer remediation before they slap a penalty on you in theory. So after i calm down i call the air. Traffic control centre. I dialed the number the The trae kind facility there. And i asked for the control. Hey this is the pilot of whatever my end number was. I'd like to talk to the controller. I got advised of a possible deviation and they said oh yeah oh hang on and this guy you know gets on the phone and just start reading the riot act you know really really cutting loose. Do you know how dangerous that was. And the planes and you could have been all these things. I could've done and i just quietly listened to him and let him get all that stuff out and at the end of it all. I just said you know what you're right. And i'm wrong and i thank you for that remediation and i promise this will never happen again in you know i apologize essentially no. I didn't talk them. I didn't tell them how many years i've been flying in the area and tell them that. I thought i knew what he wanted or any of that. I just took it on the chin and apologized and that diffused the situation and he said okay. You know that's okay. And he hung up the phone. And i suppose you never escalated. Because i never heard from a physio or anything like that and you know i guess my i guess my real question is can he do that. Can you tell me that. I can't terminate radar service. Yeah and there. There's a lot to unpack there. So i'm i'm going to help you peel the onion on it First of all that was a great synopsis of what happened to avoid burying the lead. Yes the short answer is yes. Class echo is controlled. Airspace and a t. Ken give you you know headings instructions and they can tell you what to do and what not to do and of course as pilot in command. You're the ultimate responsible responsible party for the flight and needed to to meet the needs of emergency. You can deviate from any regulation in part ninety one including for atc instruction but again the short answer is yes even though you didn't have to be talking to him at all When you chose to enter the system and beyond flight following in controlled airspace and class echo in this case you are subject to following those instructions and so he was within his rights to do it. He did just as as the bait. That's the starting point the baseline for this analysis all right. I've never was the first time i've ever ever heard a controller. Say that but it's good to know that it wasn't no he wasn't you know he wasn't outside of his lane. I will say it is rare. It is not well known. I mean you've been instructing for a long time. And i think there's a lot of pilots who are very experienced who might not know this in a in a way. It's a bit counter intuitive. Because you could have said. I'm just going to squawk twelve hundred this whole time and be you know cruise fat dumb and happy and get back before that you know hob sticks to the our But you know. And i'm i'm a big proponent of flight following flying afar myself I'm i'm requesting flight following you know if atc you can offer at work load permitting But it can put you in that situation and you could unexpectedly get an atc. Instruction that you didn't you didn't know that they could or or would give you. Yeah it's interesting interesting and sorry. What one quick thing. I don't want to forget. There is actually a legal interpretation about this from. Faa's
Whats Next for the Biden-Harris Team?
"Today we are joined by another round. Were all. I have so much respect and admiration for a team of graves. The president and ceo of the national women's law center a team. How are you today. I'm feeling good and so glad to be me today. I'm so glad you were able to make it. I have so much. I wanna talk to you about glad that we get to talk about good things in my opinion because he has a new president. We have a new vice-president our first woman of color to serve in that role are woman to serve in that role so we gotta start off with the personal before we dive into the amazing work that you do to make sure minin women of color are centered in all of these policies. That how're you feeling. Where were you when you saw. The breaking news had to celebrate. So i was a big old bag of tears on saturday. I you know some of it. I will just say was The relief. I don't think my body knew that the last four years it had been clinched in holding so much as some of it was like a release can. Can we talk it out for a minute. So many people. I have been talking to any one moment in cracked me up. She said i felt like. I took off my weighted blanket. My bra and my extensions. So that's how. I felt for sure. But i also was just in awe of that we will have a madam vice president. We've never said that before amit. She's a black woman that she's a south asian women in what it says about our leadership and what it says to a coming generation of black and brown girls who will be okay being ambitious. Because they've seen it. I just i'm still choked up thinking about wet now feels possible and i'll just tell you one quick story. My i have two sons and they are twelve and eight and my eight year. Old grew has grown up casually talking about. When i become president you know. He just sorta We'll drop it incidences as like well. Maybe one day when i'm president and he's able to do that because he saw it in president barack obama who he would call he calls president bronco and and so president bronco was out there in just being there provided a whole new opportunity for people and so i am really excited that we will have that for free black Young people to know that leadership can look like a vice president elect comma harris. It's amazing i i don't have kids have nieces and nephews and i think about my niece in particular that she only knows. Hillary clinton are miss hillary as she hall alter who ran for president and now he knows kamala so for her. This is just so normal that it's gonna be weird for them if they see a presidential ticket without a woman they're gonna be lightweight with. I think we're done with the idea of all white male tickets. I actually think people will people will think what what is that. And how did we get their that. It is a new day in many ways. Because of that and i think this country will be grappling with that going forward absolutely and we know that we have our new president lagged or vice president elect and i was telling so many people when they were saying. Oh he's up in the polls. This is going to be a blow out as i know this this racist high. I talked about it on the last episode by there are still people who were fine with the direction the country was going in in. Its because those are people that no matter who is in office in what they're doing they're going to be fine or they're okay. If the bad things are happening to people not Horsely bad is just a reality. I i will tell you. I believe in celebrating deeply. And so i was in a celebrate tori spirit beacon with me. I brought it into our team this morning. And i said guys we got to do that. I know what is brewing next. And what comes next the diagnosis of like what. What led to the electoral outcomes that we have so step to celebrate and i the parties around the world. I felt like i did that. Pretty effectively step two is having a data fueled standing of how we got there and that you know the two of the matter is when all of the votes are finally counted. You know it's likely somewhere. North of five million. More people voted for the biden harris ticket than not but it is also the case that we have to grapple with the more than million people who supported donald trump. And why

Prom at the Polls - Young Voters Taking Charge
"Thanks for being here. So so be tell us about promised the polls, what it's all about and what promised polls doing in the weeks leading up to the elect show prometheus polls is a youth led civic engagement event meant to take back twenty twenty, and we're doing this through a series of social media challenges and different fund ways for young people and adults to get involved and make the voting process. Exciting. We lost our promise graduation. We lost so many things due to the pandemic and we're GONNA, take that back with prompt the polls we are creating excitement around voting through the challenge. Hashtag proposals and Hashtag address up to vote. Those are the two main things that we're working on now and all the way up until the election. So the first one we're using the HASHTAG proposals is challenging someone to go to the polls if you or to vote by mail with you, and we're doing this to create a big wave of youth voters and to get so many more people engaged to wouldn't have before. So if I challenged my friend to vote and they vote with made than they challenged someone else I'm reaching so many more people than if I just voted alone so. You may ask what is a puzzle so a proposal similarly to proposals in highschool for problems or forms it is asking someone to go out with you. So in our case, we're asking people to come with us to the polls or to just vote with us from the comfort of our own home. The other aspect of this is dressing up to vote. So we're using the HASHTAG dress up to vote, and if you participate in any of these challenges, which we really encourage you all to do make sure to use the Hashtag online. So we can spread the word and share the. Content that you're creating but dress up to vote is exactly what it sounds like. It's putting on prom or formal attire and either going to the polling place or walking to your mailbox or going to a dropbox to cast your ballot. But making sure that you're voting in style and just making voting fun and exciting for everyone and up until the election will be participating and we have some really interesting people and Super Cool influencers who are participating, but it really comes down to the youth and the population participating everyday people getting out getting excited about voting and participating in these different challenges. Tell us a bit about how promised the poll started promised. The polls began when you actually introduced the five of us and put us in kind of a think tank room and we all are really passionate about getting out the youth vote and making sure that every young person in this country knows that their vote matters and that their voice matters and we wanted to come up with a fun and creative way to inspire young people to go to the polls to vote and make their voice heard on election day. Nicole Brown celebrities are really stepping forward. So just one quick word of encouragement. Please encourage other folks to get involved in their platforms the way you are. I WANNA say that first of all is not lost there is still time there's eighteen days as a young man named Jerome, Foster, the second who created prompt the polls. That's the thing we joked about at the beginning he's trying to encourage young people to enjoy their senior year at the polls. So find somebody you WANNA, take to the polls and and shout them out and shoot your shot, and then just encourage people to find different interesting Korean of ways to go and make a different voice matters use it out of the first meeting after you connected us we came up with this idea and ever since then have been meeting daily to pull it off and make it happen. Where can people find out more information? We have a website promised the polls, dot com but most of our information at all of our content is on all of our social media platform. So twitter instagram tech, pock facebook you can go there and we'll be posting some super cool content from now until election day on the various platforms and you can find more ways to get involved. They're amazing. And Matthew. What do you think is the goal for promised the polls what do you hope that promised the polls will accomplish I. Think we succeeded if we have even just one person vote in planning on voting before obviously the goal is a lot bigger than that. But at the end of the day when we sit out to start the prompted the Bulls project, you said to results what do We want to accomplish how do we WANNA help and how do we think the country needs to change and one of the big things that we talked about that the vote isn't being considered enough is being cared about enough and there's people in the country in our generation that are voting. So we thought let's take that opportunity. Let's take that situation and make it something fun. Make it something. that. They can enjoy but also make it something that they're going to participate in for the next. However many years they want to see you know really at the end of the day the goal is if we get as many people voting as possible that haven't voted before as many people involved in the political process that weren't involved before and there's many people interested that weren't interested before we've succeeded.
Python at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
"Angles especially around some of the remote stuff. A lot of things you guys do work with like Rovers. You talked about spirit just to have a conversation with those things is like we complain about late and senior website was slow or I was playing this game and it was hard because there was. Two hundred milliseconds of latency. There's different kinds of latency out in space. Right? Wouldn't the speed light is not enough. So he can some of the smart and putting it on rovers and other stuff. Some of this ai work that you're doing. It sounds like it might have some lakes Ai I. Hope. So and we think it does too. So Michael, basically the work that. We're doing for your listeners. We have a project that we've been investigating now. So let's fast forward the clock rovers nowadays the last one that landed on the planet. I won't say that we shipped because we just shipped one, which we'll talk about called does a couple of weeks. The right we did pandemic shipping and launching of rockets, Rovers, new fad but yes, for pre. That pre pandemic in two thousand, twelve, we ship the the Mars Science Laboratory or the Curiosity Rover, and that one is about. So spirited opportunity just the size them ver- you know your listeners it's about the size if you have kids of one of those cars that you push maybe or something like that or maybe like a power wheel big wheel type of thing that size. Of Spirit and opportunity the MSL rover is about the size of a small car like Volkswagen bug and if you came to jpl and it was open to have these some day and things like that, you could walk into our building agency a full scale model of to really get the feel of it but that's the size rover over that we're talking about now that's. Sort of the modern class at them and so twenty, twenty s the perseverance, the launched it's the same size. So we've got MSL still operating spirit and opportunity arts anymore because they were solar-powered MSL is powered basically by nuclear fission uses an rtd power source and things like that. So it doesn't have to worry about solar panels so it can go for quite a while and. Has Been. So it's a great test basically as long as it mechanically is still functioning right? Absolutely and so challenges with mechanical functioning are like, Hey, we learned a lot about the wheels for a car sized thing as we drove over walks in it toward the wheels up, you know and things, and so we did we learned a lot about them if you look at one. Quick Update and twenty twenty as the wheels have little homer simpson speed holes are not speed old but holes to prevent having just track and tread that dies catching on everything and that's just one thing we learned amongst other things. We've got smart engineers JPL. MSL's agree platform to test stuff out on. However let's talk about AIML L. I'm going to dispel some missing rumor so. MSL and space assets and others they all need right we gotta do computing we need a processor and A. And things like that they are running off of an old the what is that the latest? GP probably like a Invidia like twenty eighty something like that. Yeah. Everybody thinks that and I know you're being facetious and I liked the snark it's awesome. But yes, no, and that's the challenge. Everybody thinks that and it's not it's running off of a rats fifty, which is a be a h that's as bad as powerful as a POWERPC chip and process or in so and why real quick y right when we crash something in the government, we've got a congressional inquiry that we have to respond to. This virtual companies do it and we love the commercial companies where partner with them. Now, they don't right they I mean not to say that it doesn't ruin their value stream or their reputation or things like that. But they've got a little bit more flexibility to do testing and stuff like that than we do and so we are risk averse by profile definition, and so because of that, we were only use things that are what we. Call radiation hardened, which means that when it gets up there in space, a space does and cosmic radiation do weird things to your hardware they flip the bids amongst that's the easy stuff they do. They do a lot of other nasty stuff and so you gotta make sure that the hardware works in space and so because of that the technology, the Gartner life cycle for what we could use for that is real behind and so this big. Smart this big. Potentially smart you know and it is smart. They did great things on MSL and they're going to do even greater on twenty twenty is writing off of an old processor. So the I is human in the loop even more. So coupled with the fact that you alluded to, Hey, you know bandwidth latency you think that's an issue the lifetime from Earth to Mars eight minutes round trip. So anything you send to Mars you, gotTa. Weigh eight minutes to figure out what the heck happened or even what happened for your report back. Then you know that's not it doesn't all have to be synchronised. They're asynchronous ways. There are ways to kind of achieved some advantages and key things up, but it's still it's eight minutes basically, and so because of that, there's a video on youtube by the way for your listeners. If you haven't seen it, it's called the seven minutes of terror. Closer to eight. Yeah. Yeah. That's a great one. Yeah. Yeah. That's for the entry descent and landing. When they landed MSL curiosity, they had to use a big sky crane instead of the typical big balloon rap the rover to balloon it let it balance which was the way they did it before it was so big they had to have this elaborate sky crane thing and in that seven minutes when you go into entry descent and landing there seven minutes before you knew, Hey, what the heck happened and all this stuff had to happen autonomously and things like that, which is great. But yeah, normally eight minutes and so if I told you today that the Mars surface operations people use about two. Hundred images a day that are taken from the rover from its NAVC cans, which are camps by the wheels, and it's Mass Cam, which is the big head that take selfies and other things that you see what it's arm. If I told you that today, they only use two hundred images to plan what to do for rover operations. The next day you'd understand why we're bandwidth limited or Ltd what we can process on the reverse sucking them down to the ground and making decisions. What if I told you tomorrow? We'll get close to that nvidia chip maybe not exactly but there's efforts called high-performance space like computing to build a multi-core. GP. Like chip that is radiation hardened. It's a big government project. That has an emulator already that they're making and that we also today have Mars helicopter I'm perseverance, which is a little drone that went along with it that if successful is running a qualcomm snapdragon, which is gp like chip and why are we not fully radiation hardened and all this? It does we've tested in whatever but it's not like has the years and years of testing. Why are we doing that? Because it's a technology demonstration and we have a bigger like the mission is still successful even if Mars Halley you know is not successful with that what you call ingenuity right and I. Suspect that the risk to a little drone helicopter thing
A Conversation With Erin Vilardi, Founder And CEO Of Vote Run Lead
"Into the podcast thanks for having me. So I saw talk where you showing the ranking of presentation by women at the highest levels rate, and there was a ranking of countries by countries and the US came in rather slow. And I just have one quick clarifying question for that was that at the government level or all executive leadership that I think is the inter-parliamentary Union I you which keeps the records around parliaments. So that's the most. Equitable body across various governments and so that's actually what they're comparing. So our Congress to say like the British Parliament, the UK parliament I don't know what year you talk but where are we now in comparison to that year and how we rank with other countries? So. It changes frequently. As elections happened across the globe, but I can actually pull that up and tell you that it's not good. We are tied at seventy six according to the inter-parliamentary union with Afghanistan, and that is from March twenty nineteen. So it looks like and now we are eighty three. So actually we've gone down we have our ranking has lowered in the last couple of years, which often means because even though we had quite a wave of women, right the two thousand eighteen election is often called the wave of women. Especially when it comes to Congress, we didn't see that large of a dramatic increase in moved to about twenty eight percent and you know that was fantastic because it actually ushered in A. Wave of women of color it ushered in a wave of young women, but it wasn't that kind of exponential growth or getting us anywhere near you know parody or reflective, which would be the majority we should be closer to fifty one, hundred, fifty, two percent to be fully reflective of women's representation in this country. So and you see other countries making different kinds of progress ahead of us as we remain pretty stuck pro because I think one of the points he made in that talk that we were at twenty percent and we've been at twenty percent in in terms of representation for twenty years. Try. So that is statistically around the state legislatures and same thing twenty eighteen we saw state legislative wave happen very much mirrored what we saw at the congressional level. So predominantly, democratic women rising through the ranks for the state legislatures I think there we are also. So the Congress has something like twenty four percent and I think actually the state houses around twenty eight percent. And, a fantastic resource is actually something called the Center for American, women and politics tracks all of these numbers really closely as either people retire or things change. They're doing a really great job of keeping those numbers up to date but again, it's pretty stagnant, right? It's not enough to make significant change you end up having to have women who are taking really really deep risks. An order for policy change to occur rather than the change where you see a more equitable government or more equitable legislature and allowed you mentioned the center of American women and politics because I interviewed them at least once or twice and I remember Kelly Dittmar from there, you know saying something that really stuck with me was before the two thousand, eighteen midterms before the election happened and their historic number of women running for office and everyone was really excited about the fact we had so many women running for office right and then you pointed out the fact that like all of these women. Won't win right so we have you know this is a multilayered issue we have you know getting them to run for office, we having them winning their elections, and then you know there's something that you mentioned in your talk that really stuck with me. You said something about term limits right? We forget that the fact that these women once they actually when they actually have to stay in office and then you know sometimes they aren't reelected. So we have all these these multilayered issues that keep women out of office in keep these percentages low well, and you also have pretty weak party infrastructure. There's. A great article outright now, I will find it and share it with your audience about you know really questioning. Is there a real? Paul, within the Republican Party to actually elect women now I think some Republican. Women will tell you. Yes including some younger republican congressman who are doing things outside of the party leadership but there isn't the same kind of concerted effort that you see on the left. But let's also remember that the Democrats effort towards recruiting women is pretty new and they still do things that actually for example, they after the win of Alexandra Customer Cortez. Long term incumbent, the D. triple, which is the Democratic congressional campaign arm said any vendors, any people who do business any consultants such sort of Konami around political campaigns you can't do business with these insurgent candidates like an see in the future also be blacklisted from doing business with the triple endorse candidates, and that was basically a slap in the face to nontraditional candidates, which primarily are winning overwhelmingly women of Color. So there's While we do have one party sort of doing better than the other around recruiting and activating uplifting as part of the leadership pipeline. It's really a reckoning we have to have with ourselves as a country with all of our political parties to do
Episode 11- A Converstation with a Generation X - burst 01
"This. Say. Sanity get off. Mardi grass. Welcome welcome to the old man's podcast podcast. It's for everybody not just then on this episode episode eleven, we're GONNA finish up our conversation with the genetics that was started on a previous episode and frankly just ran too long. We're going to get that wrapped up today I think you're going to enjoy the conversation very interesting with a very interesting person. After that I do have one quick story I wanNa tell you about something that I saw the kids do it really looks Not Fun but looks practical it looked like a smart idea. Being young at heart being well thinking that I'm a kid I decided I was going to try this trick myself. Well, it did not work. It went bad. It went horribly ably bad and I'm GonNa tell you the story, which is basically me trying to be a kid. So all that on episode eleven of the old man's podcast. Please stay tuned I'm sure you're. GonNa love it.
How Trump and Biden are making their pitches in battleground states
"If you look at a lot of these swing state polls is you look at them understand that the trump still is polling. Below the number he got twenty sixteen right he he's not pitching in to the support that he was getting in most of these polls. If not, all of them Joe Biden is polling ahead of where Hillary Clinton was. Right. A lot of these states are are states trump won that he's not leading in now. So I would say it's not a it's not as bad as you think it is. But B The pilot is almost certainly going to tell you buckle up your seat belt because. It's GonNa get closer. It's why we call them swing states or battleground states. So my my my thing on Florida's we get into this one quick thing in the last six presidential elections forty, five, million votes have been cast in Florida and the difference between Democrats and Republicans in that total of forty five million votes is a little more than eighty five, thousand death-ray Florida's Florida, I mean, it's GonNa be tight. It is going to be a very tight race all the way there. It's going to be a one point to point race. It's always has been, and if it's two points that's big in Florida, a Roberts set so. It doesn't surprise I. I agree with my thought I don't I kind of questioned the tide all in terms of the the strength of trump with Latinos over Biden air. I'm little asking that as well but even then you look at those numbers that finds doing much better with seniors than Hillary did in two thousand, sixteen in Florida I mean it's sort of offset the different race. It's not the same but it's going to be very tight.
Rep. John Lewis Makes Final Stop in Atlanta
"Rights activist and icon who became a moral force in the United States. Congress will be laid to rest. Today. He's been celebrated in a series of memorials this week and this past Sunday, he received a hero's sendoff in his native state of Alabama. And on Monday, Congressman Lewis was honored in Washington, DC It was an emotional Ceremony with lawmakers. His colleagues Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, played a portion of a speech that Lewis gave to graduates at Emory University in 2014. As young people. You must understand that there are forces that would take us back to another period. But you must know that would mark warned by way made too much progress and we're going to make you some step back. Some delays some disappointment, but you must never give up. I give in. You must keep the faith and keep so eyes on the prize. That is so calling. That is your mission That is tomorrow. Obligation that is oh, man. They get out there and do it getting away. Lewis lay in state in the Capitol Rotunda following the ceremony, making him the first black lawmaker to receive that honor. And today, Congressman Lewis comes home to Atlanta, Georgia. The funeral service is being held at the historic Ebeneezer Baptist Church, where the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr was once co pastor and joining us Now is Emma Hurt. She's a reporter with our member station W. A. B in Atlanta, and she joins us live from outside of Ebeneezer Baptist and Emma describe what it's like there where you are right now. Hi, Emma. Can you hear me? Emma will be joining us shortly. She is outside of Ebenezer Baptist Church. Now let's go to Debbie Elliot. We'll check back in with Emma. And just a few moments. Hi, Debbie. How are you? I am good. I know that you spent a lot of time in Alabama over the weekend. There were several memorials and services. It was quite a scene. Right. You know, I think the thing that stands out the most was was when he was in Selma and his casket was on this horse drawn carriage. And it crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge, of course, that iconic place where he was met with state troopers and sheriff's deputies who beat him up in a peaceful march for voting rights. Back in 1965 and people had come to sort of witness him make that Symbolic final crossing. Yeah, you've been You've known the congressman for for many years. You spoke with him back in 2015 at that. Edmund Pettus Bridge. Tell us about that. Yes. So this was in advance of 50th anniversary celebrations marking You know, 50 years since the Voting Rights Act passed because of that horrible incident on that bridge. The nation in the world really became aware of the brutality against African Americans who were pushing for equality in the American South. And so I met him there. We stood at the foot of the bridge, and we had a conversation about what it was like back then. And let's listen to a little bit, and he describes what happened on that came before. Beating us. Shrimping with horses. Releasing the tick and I was getting here. A state trooper with the night stick. My legs went from under me. I thought I was going to die. I thought I saw death. He thought he saw death, You know, and this was a moment where he had been that the the sheriff's deputy in the state troopers told them you have to turn back. We're not going to let you march to Montgomery. And they asked to kneel in prayer and as they went to kneel in prayer before they were going to turn back and go back to their churches. They were told. The meeting started. Tell me what's so powerful about that moment in history is that it was it was. It was a time where people were able to see for the first time the brutality. Those images were so powerful. It was labeled bloody Sunday and it sped up the passages you said of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Debbie will will come back to you a little later to talk more about that. That's NPR's Debbie Elliot. We now have with us in the hurt. She is a reporter with our member station W. Abe in Atlanta, and she's outside of Ebeneezer Baptist Church where services will be held today. And Emma describe for us what it's like for you out there right now what you're seeing. Okay. Hi, Emma. This is Tanya. Can you hear me? Hi. Yeah. Can you hear me? I can I know that. It's It's quite a crowd. Okay? Can you tell us a bit about what you're seeing out there? I'm seeing I'd say about 200 people out here and we've kind of got to groups. We've got the people that are starting to gather at the Jumbotron, which has been set up right outside the church. I'm waiting to watch the service live there. And then we've got a crowd of people who are who are welcoming people as they arrive, welcoming the VIPs on presidential watch. Right now, I would say, waiting waiting for the three former presidents who are going to attend today and speak and the mood here is is really. I mean, it's it's serious, but it's also so joyful. It's about singing, and the stories that people have been telling me are just really powerful stories of how much Congressman Lewis meant to them. How much his message means to them in this time. And how much they want their Children and their grandchildren to make sure to remember him and what he stood for. What's really powerful, a swell about his home state of of his home state of Georgia and the city of Atlanta. Is that so many people felt like they knew him because they met him. You're hearing all of those stories from folks, I'm sure their interactions with him. Ebeneezer Baptist has so much history is I mentioned earlier, Martin looking Junior was a co pastor their share with us the significance of that church. Well, this was this was more Luther King Juniors from church. He grew up in it and was pastor as you said. It was also John Lewis's Home Church, where his wife's funeral was held in 2013. And it's really special. I think for these two figures overlap in this In this part of Atlanta to on Auburn Avenue, which is really the centre of Black Atlanta life, and some would argue the center of the Civil Rights movement and the two figures. I mean yesterday what was so powerful about Congressman Lewis lying in state in the Capitol in Georgia was that this was an honor denied to Dr King when he died. So I spoke to people who said I'm here because of all the people like Dr King who were denied that honor. And here we are giving Congressman Lewis most them may be the most honor. That we can right now. Sure, Let's listen to some of those folks that you spoke with you. It was amazing. It was amazing. All people on the young people. A lot of my friends has passed away. But I remember him from there. So that's why you mentioned This church being in the Hart. I just want to tell you that was Patricia Spicer, who's here, and she was talking about seeing Congressman Lewis speak at the 1963 march on Washington and that that's why his words were so powerful then and grabbed her then and she had to come today. The body of John Lewis was brought to Atlanta yesterday, and as you mentioned, it passed a number of important landmarks in the city. Walk us through. Some of those final landmarks that this journey to finally to Ebeneezer Baptist Church. There were there were quite a few stops because, as you said, Congressman Lewis has been such a presence in his district for, you know, 30 plus years. There was a pause at the Rainbow Crosswalk in Midtown, which you know, celebrates LGBT Q. The LGBTQ community here they passed by his downtown congressional office and a major street here that was renamed after him in the John Lewis Freedom Parkway on DH. It was there was also a big stop at a mural that you, Khun see driving down the interstate that runs through Atlanta. It has a picture of John Lewis and the words hero and, you know, it was really powerful. Tio. Watch him land for the last time in Atlanta and to watch him, you know, make his his final journey around the city. That's Emma hurt. She's a reporter with our member station. W. A. B in Atlanta. Thank you so much. Thank you. We're going to bring in another voice to our conversation. Remembering today the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis Bishop Leah Daughtry is with us. Now. She's a political organizer and strategist. She ran. The Democratic National Convention is in 2008 in 2016 and she is the presiding prelate of the House of the Lord Churches. And there is perhaps no one better to talk about the intersection of faith in politics in this moment, which is what's so much of John Lewis's life really represents Bishop. Doctor. Thank you for being here. Good morning to you. And thank you very much from including this conversation. I guess I would just start by asking where your thoughts are this morning. Oh, you know, in the it's Ah, it's a powerful day. In the African American tradition. We call this the services home going And so they are mix of sorrow and sadness, but also great joy, particularly when it's someone like Mr Lewis, who has lived his life in such an exemplary way and in keeping with the principles of his faith that we know that he And our tradition. He's going home to be with the creator. And so we rejoice in bed and in the deeply held idea that we will see him again. So the mix of emotions on and I'm looking forward to the servants and being able to worship with those who have gathered To celebrate his life. The the word and his faith came before politics, did it. Not that was with what guided him first? Yes, yes, And I think that's so instructive for all of us who are people of faith. He was deeply guided by the principles of the face that he held so deeply and so closely and though that is what informed him and informed his action. Informed his decision to get involved in the civil rights movement on then to pursue a career in electoral politics. It's because of the ideals of of of our faith of our share faith that God intends for all of us. To live a full and abundant life. It holds us equally ah, in God's eyes and ah, divinely created and therefore in endowed with these Possibilities of being hole and equal. And then we have an obligation to pursue of society that sees us as God. And so for John Lewis that meant getting involved in the civil rights movement. That meant going on the bus boycotts being part of the leadership because it was he was pursuing the principal's off his face. And then in his later life, Of course, he came to Congress again, seeking ways to create a just society, a beloved community that treats all of its citizens equally. That has got had intended them to be he. It was almost a joke near the end of his life. How often he was asked to talk about preaching to chickens as a child on how readily he wanted to share that story, right? It was, he just he reveled in it of the idea of Off the joy he had as a very young man. I mean, eight years old, even sharing what he believed to be the most important important message there, Wass and and it helped him. Negotiate through through Washington. It helped him find ways to communicate with people with whom he disagreed. This's a very important part of his legacy is enough. It is it is, you know it and it tells you how deeply held his faith was. You know in these days, particularly when people are chasing followers, and ah likes and so forth on social Media network to think of this young man who who so loved his face. It was so impassioned by that any audience any Opportunity. He had to share his fate. Even with the chickens, Wass and was a chance to home his craft was a chance to get his ideas out was a chance. The tests, cadences and rhythms of words was a chance to share was the chickens and with those around the pick of the air, the grass the field how passionate he was about things that he believed and then bringing those ideals to Congress and understanding again. The people I help The idea of our faith that God has created a so equal And so if this idea that you don't have to be just like me to be just like me, there's something we have in common with each other. And if we can just talk if we can just be in conversation, we can see each other perhaps here because we may not still agree, but at least The tendency to demonize the unknown goes away lesson diminishes in the conversation. And who could refuse the conversation with Mr Lewis, who could refuse to just sit and talk and listen, and he was as good a listener. As he Waas a conversationalist. So you know, I think the Congress was richer for having him there on the Congress was Richard that his colleagues were Richard for just being able to be in conversation with someone who has deeply held ideal of deeply held conviction and experience. We should point out. Three former presidents are expected to get the memorial today. Bill Clinton. Barack Obama and and George W. Bush. I mean, just exemplifying the way that he he was very firm about what he believed and believed in his party, but he would work with Republicans if it meant Getting getting through the legislation he thought was most important. That's right. I mean, red and blue. These sorts of lines. These artificial divisions that we create among ourselves to categorize each other didn't really existed. Mr Lewis's lexicon. It was all about the humanity of people, and so has admit moving communities forward if admits Getting everybody the rights they deserve. Then he was willing to have the conversation. He was willing to be engaged and involved. And we see that in the folks that are going to speak today that are going to be present today at the tone and the tenor of the service, which he himself Designed. He spoke to his his closest staff. A. Stephen knew his time was shortening and said, who he wanted to be there. And what's the one of the elements of the club is to be what we see. Today is of Mr Lewis's own crafted bishop. Doctor, Can I ask one quick question if you were involved in the ceremony today, Realism putting you on the spot. But is there scripture that you think represents this moment, something you can point to that that carries the weight of history with it, but also Is about hope is about the future. You know, The thing that comes to mind for me is the passage and Hebrews. There's a chapter the faith chapter. We call it. Chapter 11 that talks about all the icons of our faith. Abraham and Sarah and getting and so forth on a long litany and in the middle of verse 13 says these all died in the faith, not having received the promises. But having seen them afar off, and for me that speaks of the hope. That was Mr Lewis's life. He stood on the shoulders of those who went before who didn't see freedom who didn't think the achievement of our civil rights. He followed them and he lived his life in such a way that he advanced the faith. He advance the causes, but he didn't see all of the achievement. And now we come behind him on continue his legacy. So he believed he held these convictions didn't scenes didn't see everything he fought for comes repair, But he still believed he still continue fighting. And henceforth Scripture goes on to say there was laid up for me A crown of righteousness was the Lord. That right? Justo shall give me on that day. And not to me only bought to all those who love disappearing. And so we look forward to seeing the two of us again in the future. Bishop Leah Daughtry. Thank you so much for sharing your reflections with us on this day. Thank you. Yes, very powerful. Let's go now to NPR. Congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell and NPR's senior editor and correspondent on the Washington desk. Ron Elving. Hey, guys. Kelsey. Good morning. We've heard so many powerful tributes from people throughout the country and the world. But But Louis is home state of Georgia. His presence and work had an especially profound. Meaning for his home state of Georgia for his district. Tell us a little bit more about his time there. You know, I am reminded of a couple of really, really standout moments of. I think one of the things that I think about a lot right now is the tribute that that they delivered for Johnny Isakson, who was a Republican senator. Of from Georgia, who retired last year, and in 2019 it was in November. So just just so a bit ago, Johnny Isakson was being was being honored and John Lewis Delivered this speech explaining how they could work together and and how there was an opportunity for anybody to find spaces where they agreed. And then, at the end of his speech, he walked across the Isaacson, who was in bad health and who had had trouble with his spine and said I will come to you brother and walked over and gave him a hug. That was really very much representative of the way. That John Lewis approached, you know, working on problems was what he wanted there to be bipartisanship. He wanted to be the person who came across, walked across and shake somebody's hand gave them a hug and said We can get something done here. He was also the kind of person who, whenever you saw him in the capital. There would be some person some tourist or a constituent who wanted to come and talk to him, and there was always had the time he had the time to tell his story had the time to talk to people about their story. He was extremely generous with his time and his constituents were known to come up to the capital and spent time directly with him. There was never a moment when it team like he was bigger than anybody else. Yeah, it's been Ah, so enriching and so fun over the last week to hear how so many people that I personally no have have met John Lewis, whether it's in Washington whether it's in Atlanta. New York Across the country. People have had a chance to meet him, but also have these intimate one on one conversations with him A CZ. We've learned he never turned anyone away. He was always willing to stop and have those conversations. One of the things that jumps out to me was a story about Congressman Lewis. When Hey, was in his district and he would spend a day doing a job in the district so even way back in the seventies, he would do things like drive a ups truck for a day to get a sense of what his constituents were up against. That is something that so many people feel is that he was of the people. Absolutely, and a lot of members of Congress that I speak to say they learned from that approach. They learned from John Lewis not just from the work that he did in civil rights, but the way he had a relationship with his constituents the way that he continued to speak about issues that meant something to him and then became active in them. I am reminded of the sit in on the House floor. On gun violence. He led House Democrats in a sit in and following. I believe the pulse shooting and they said that this was not a time when they could leave, and then he wanted to be the person who, you know who did the good trouble that he always talks about. He did not want to just be a person talking about it. He wanted to be a person involved in it. And you know so many members of Congress on Democrats and Republicans who felt inspired by that personal connection to his beliefs. The service eyes expected to begin shortly, and about 10 5 or 10 minutes. Ron, I'd love to go through with you what we can expect for today's service. But I want to talk first about Lewis's time as a civil rights activist, part of the movement back in the sixties. We expect to hear a lot about that today during the service, right? Yes, indeed, his life traced if you will, the trajectory of the African American experience over the last 70 80 years in American history. He was one of the group sometimes referred to as the Big Six, of course, beginning with Martin Luther King, whose name will be invoked. Many times today, but also Whitney Young of the National Urban League. Roy Wilkins of the CP. James Farmer of the Congress of regular Racial Equality and a Philip Randolph from the Pullman Porters Union. They were in many respects the Giants. Of the civil rights movement, as it took shape after World War two and rose in the fifties and sixties. Of course, John Lewis was there for most, all of it. He was part of the citizens at lunch counters in Nashville. He was one of the original 13 Freedom riders in 1961 integrating bus travel in the south. He was the youngest speaker on that day in 1963 when the march on Washington for jobs and justice featured Martin Luther King's I have a Dream speech. John Lewis spoke that day was the youngest speaker. He's the last person surviving from the speakers Dyas that day. And then, of course, the 1965 moment we have referenced Many times his beating on the Pettus Bridge. And, of course, his career in Congress, As Kelsey has described and then his links to the Black lives matter movement, which he paid tribute to In death as his cortege was coming to the capital earlier this week and paused on black lives matter Plaza in front of the White House to pay tribute to the movement and the people who are carrying forward his ideals today. Yes, And as we

"one quick" Discussed on Software Engineering Daily
"The advantage of this domain, is that inevitability is on your side. Eventually, these supermarkets are all going to need to refurbish themselves as software integrated shopping areas. So that's, that's great. The problem is, you are kind of by definition early because you're building the technology that they are going to adopt. So what makes it tricky is that there's so many different areas that you want to solve. And I, imagine if you if you aren't aren't super familiar with the grocery domain, these things can start to look so interconnected that it's really hard to find a specific specific problem to solve within the grocery domain. Like if you were to, if there was some specific problem that you could find, for example, like, you know, like, let's say just apples, like let's say you, you. You could just optimize win a store should order more apples. You know, if you could just simply integrate with the cash register system, it lets you just integrated with the cash register system and the inventory management system. And let's assume those things are accurate. You could simply know how many apples have been ordered. How many apples have been purchased and based on that information, and perhaps some other inputs about how fast apples spoil or maybe like recent science about how apple spoilage has gotten better or something, you could probably integrate those things together and simply say, hey, grocery store, we're going to provide you with a model that allows you to more intelligently. Order your apples, will you let us trial this? You know, they let you trial it. And then, you know, you reduce their apple apple spoilage. You make them some money. And then they like no brainer or willing to buy software from you. I just bring that up as an example, because I'm I want to know how you actually enter into. To this market because selling software to a grocery store. I imagine is really really, really hard and you have to prove to them some specific thing that you can do for them. That is advantageous. So how do you enter this market? Yeah. That's a great question. Yes. So the first quick answer is that we found that there is so much need for this tool. In is basically, the amount of money that they lose on this Kundun goes to waste is with a huge and they're willing to work with a relatively young company like ours in two highlights with us because they just see the immense potential that at the -nology like this can can can have ends. They yes basically that's kind of the short answer. Now, maybe the slightly longer answer is that I can tell you a little bit more about how we structure this process in, in how we got into this market in the first place and the story. So our initial Arner is working with them a Mehemet to co founders met Nathan when we were still students at Stanford. So I was finishing a cheap program, and they were finishing DA and we got data from a supermarket chain that was interested to work with us while we were still students in this was structured as research project where we would look at their data and try to understand their sources of ways which is interesting in itself, because of is a societal governmental problem that is interesting to me, people in India in prophets into them. This partnership was interesting because maybe we will find a better way to some, some, some good way to reduce their food waste which we did. So initially when we started this project as the students end this was research project, and then we found a way to we basically look at the thirty days that looked there, the waste understand why when it happens, we came. Him up with a system that they would automate some of these decisions around the basically focusing on ordering and then we came up with a framework for evaluating and type to predict much values deliver using simulation on their store data in. So then we gave them a presentation results, and they were very excited in we saw that there was a lot of demand among other supermarket chains in, so we yet, so basically the Senator form company and then currently the way that we sell this to suffer companies is there similar, we have a several steps initially, we get a historical data dump from them in use the store data dump to build a model in to, again run the simulation other historical data to compare their circle performance with performance. They would have had if they had used our algorithm. And we then deliver. With kind of charts and metrics in the show them when our algorithm, would have done in how the of this would have impacted lazy. We expand our model works the house relation worse than what are always options, which conservative, and then we will see this report show them, what's expected, why. And then based on this they determine whether we whether it makes sense for them to proceed. And then the next for assist to is to deploy the system in a small number of stores, usually between one to five and then was that goes, well be onto larger deployment. So you get a historical data dump from prospective, grocery store customer. Yes. What are the data sets and the machines that they are giving you in that data dump. So, basically to give us everything that they record. Turnley in their database or data warehouse. And this is mainly things like their historical sales. There is little historical orders or prices their their, their shipments between stores. Sometimes they tracked waste the other often is not always accurate. We can get a few divide the circle ads markdowns, etc. So it's one of nine series data in its everything that the user of things that are usually recorded either at the cash register or at, at various places in their supply chain. When they moved boxes when they scan them with, with a gun to our most grocery stores, this well tech doubt. Or are we talking about some specific set because this is like somewhere in between the technological sophistication of whole foods, which is very sophisticated versus your random mom and pop grocery store, or like a farmer's market. How many grocery stores are this technologically sophisticated where the tracking all this data? We were with supermarkets that are self distributed meaning that they own their warehouse. And this is the basically the chains that start to have twenty five thirty stores or more are than extends than it makes sense for them to have their own warehouse. And then they there's, there's a lot of standards tools and processes that are used when managing warehouse, which then record all of this data. So basically, these are gonna midsize who large chains that we work with. So we don't work with a small moment up. Supermarkets smallest moment, bub corner grocery stores. So in the US about half of the stores of the grocery stores in US would be are of a chain, which would have this kind of technology describe yet, actually makes a lot of sense because I think about, like Safeway or HEB. Those are the grocery chains that I'm most. Familiar with their pretty well, run operations. I'm thinking about it now, you know, earlier I kind of categorized grocery stores is a place where technology has not invaded that much. But it does feel like Safeway in HEB, if I think back ten years ago, they are much more well, run today than they were in the past. So I can imagine them, actually having a good amount of data. And again, this data depends on supermarket chain. Definitely, we've seen a lot of variance in Amish data, the store in it has never gone gone back to twenty years ago. It's always, it's always on the order of between one in ten years of data that they have, and so they definitely have been according to state of longtime. But in the last decade, or so they have gradually been adopting more and more technology in them understanding graduate the importance of data than it has become easier and cheaper than ever. Store, this data in so the last several years is when this data has become truly available end available for, for companies like us us in also something else that went to add is, I think a lot of out, so sorely Safeway definitely has little technology. But something, something that we noticed one of the key by eight years though, he observed that the reporting door business is that a lot of technology has has been developed for not Berisha's because traditionally most of the prophets of these stores have been from versions, and these technologies for not perishables. They don't work for prepare Chaba lls. Because the data meeting noisier end the decision is more difficult than needs to be more accurate. And there are some things that we don't observe in the data in need to collect your own kind of. Kind of tool that, basically the app that it was describing to insomnia, even though they do have technology. There is a big lack of technology for fresh food, and that's a really big problem that we're trying to solve. Yet. The data dump problem brings up an interesting and generalize -able question. I have for you. So when they give you this, big data dump I imagine there is a lot of data cleaning the you have to do they probably have some multiple different systems, internally, this probably some kind of data matching problems like kind of figuring out how to join one data set to another. But once you have that solved, and you do your proof of concept with them. The advantage is, you can say, look that took us a long time. But now we understand your systems, really, well, here's like five different ways you could make your systems, more efficient. We want to help you do that you could become a kind of systems integrator for these grocery stores as well. So it's a very interesting proof of concept like initial engagement with the grocery store company, and I think this maps to what. A lot of different SAS companies are doing right now like infrastructure, SAS companies, whether they're selling to banks or selling to insurance companies, or selling to oil companies, they kind of have to do this systems, integrator kind of liked consultation approach, but that consultation approach gives them a really, really good in to developing a close relationship and figuring out what like first of all, what do you need from us today? And second of all, what are the Sast tools that we should be building that will be desirable in five years? Yeah, that makes sense. And I agree with the with the data cleaning, the there's a machine learning that eighty percent of the work is about understanding of getting the right set of data and in twenty percent of it is actually a modeling part. So, in our case, basically, what we found is when we started working with, with supermarket alternate all of that is good. But again, really? Separate. Well, the good marks from the bed BART's in so off the top of when get initially data said we can often cover about fifty percent of the store without doing a lot of complicated data work, and then can really quickly by than investigating the remaining fifty percent of the really quickly gonna forgo in defy the good parts of that data and do some cleaning, only on the data that's where we need to do this work again. There are a lot of very standard ways of doing this, that are common across the different supermarket chains. So actively when the Dave is bad. It's often bad in very similar ways we can easily use our existing cleaning modules to new customers, which makes Quiring this, which makes feeding the rain pressure needed on his good relatively easy and easier with each you of each customer that we're facing in..

It's really going to be like literally your own little mini network. Yes. Where we're going to have a whole bunch of different contents. So the first thing we launched was on the road with some bad. So you'll start seeing episodes there. We just put up the second episode this week the sorry the breakfast was in that. That's the new thing where that's cool. That's where people join it with us right now. We're just using the Instagram. You lifesaving through this degree. We let people we let people come in and talk with this other technologies. I think we can use. Vista GRANDE would played better with people. But they're not really just so for social media. They have those sucky social skills. Yes. Pretty face Facebook where we can go in interactive another protocol, we can use this other services. Why gave up twenty thirty people don't drop a signal. Right. Yeah. So bad that could be. Yeah. So we're still that parcel. Yeah. Right. Yeah. As of now, you can catch it live on on your instrument that was ADHD is way out there. Yes. Saying well, we can go leagues acquiesce Nobis. So if you go to at if you follow him at sim, bad bad, yes. On Instagram, and you can see where he goes live, and we don't really have a set date. No. We have a gain. No. We haven't done because it's just it's like today, which is a good day at breakfast tell plus it makes you know, I'm trying to get you follow me. So I'm not gonna tell you just follow meal. Friday that. If you start if you gotta start showing up more often with me this man could just nail it in for one day. We'll do that right now you go without go. Right. Exactly. When. With. Exactly. Yeah. And then also our podcast blurred empire. We're also going to be putting the L E R deeply. Yes, exactly. We're gonna be putting some episodes on our channels, well at least video portion so right now, we're shooting with three sixty camera. So we're not sure how this is going to turn out. We're on a victim tour. I played per customer victim summer go. So we're gonna put some bad up. And we these cameras refreshing new book from CBS where we got them. Yeah. Yeah. We got to UCS refresh, and we grabbed them in didn't get chance to test them. You would not Royce being bold? I'm gonna tell you something about coming off. Just nothing. It would be a blurred or technology. We come off a cold like this, my mouth is dried out so much. Now, my lips start sticking. I don't want the dog meat. But I'm out he'll be raw with a taste in my mustache too low because I think eating my mustache. So I'm going through a lot going through right now. She's making, but my mouth inside has totally dried out L. Now is what you know that. So if I'm making these strange faces. Uh-huh. That's it doesn't dry out much. Yes. Got it. Well, do you have enough saliva to to talk about? Yes. One more thing. Yes. I think is probably one of the most important news went tear ducts right now to happen in two thousand nineteen maybe ever at least for the for beyond saves beehive. But the release of for doc homecoming have you have you watched it? I just yes. Yes. Yes. Okay. I grace shooting think is smart we at dead level. And you do a show like they say Miller stock. Let's shoot it that must that must be incredible. Because they did a fantastic job on the she didn't just give credit. Yeah. No. It was. I mean for me, I actually thought it was a little savage on beyond say's part because you have the first weekend of Coachella just ended. We're going into the second weekend. So, you know, her performance was so epic. That's the job to these. Having drops it again. And be like remember what I did is look at it. Look what's happening now. Right. So now, it just reminds everyone like, oh, yeah. I'm not going to see I should've gone. Exactly. So now people Inc. Ekkachart lease for for we too or it'd be like, oh, yeah. I'm here. These artists are here. At least you could have some lunch. But it's not beyond saying, we're not gonna get salonpas. So right. It's a you know, what it it deals with a lot about what she went through. I guess you go to eighteen pounds. Yeah. Exactly. The sacrifice to get back in the game. And I love low performing shows that you don't. But I also know people go through that too. I mean, we as performance go through lot sometimes to get to that place. And but also think you know, I don't I don't know. I just I was I think not to not to check it nothing. He put it because only by him saying that I just think sometimes we as in attendance to relies lot folks that audience that go through a lot to right. You know, we get the document ours. I think we get to be inspirational bright haven that went through this and went through that. Maybe this was about right? Let me let me dummy beco-. Maybe that's what is about. Look what look I did for you guys to be. It'd be able. Do this. She's working this out of the more. She done what kids are done for me. I don't have to work this hard anymore. Maybe I would man looking at her at sixty three I'm made choice a little time with though, right? I get maybe that's what it is what forty years old and her thirty at least thirty not for you not battle thirty years. I'm thirty years old you Odin hurt. And I guess when you make that choice and longtime ago, and she's my to that shows you like, you know, what you're right, right. I did have to get to that place. Right. Exactly. You forget there's like I'm not doing that. Yeah. And I think it's a it's one of those things that we we know everybody works hard to get to a certain point specially with beyond say, you you can imagine how hard she works. But it's funny when you watch it, and then, you know, especially with with certain people because like those still make the comments of like, oh, look how harsh she working. She. Well, she's really pushing herself. And also showing the struggles that you said like the fact that she had the weight. Yeah. I think all that stuff is. Is it was real sick? Right. Seven Cup of cases and kids and stuff. So I think that was good because it humanized her. But in a good way. Yes. Where it made her greatness even better being able to show her flaws because you know, I always think about like situation like with prince where it's like he his whole the whole his whole being is just like a perfection artistic Austin. Yeah. Exactly. The way died is almost killed Finland. Went drug a drug addiction. It was like not him. Right. Right. Me. I was like, no not hill. Not you this is that's a flow. That's the thing that you can control. And that's okay. That's the human this. Yeah. That's the human side. That's the man is makes you part of this earth apart guys plan. I just wish I could knock somebody out who was around him. It just step in. And the reason why I bring it up to because it had me thinking of like the. The whole idea of like perfection like artists portraying like of that idea of I'm just always great. Yes. You know, obviously, we know how hard prints worked as well. But if you think it's important for artists to show that side of them actually working and making mistakes messing up. Do you think that holds more weight than them hiding that? And just being just like presenting this aura of I'm just I'm just naturally the on time. I think arms can do. Artist can do whatever they will. I believe as a person, I think my flaws my failures, I have to show those because as part of me, I think showing failures is what makes you great. I think my failures mood at the Michael Jordan think I took you to see what it was on that big. But they use all the multi cameras, the big Macs. What was what screens screens Jordan Johnson max, Michael? There was a segment who a slow motion hit that long day. I said. That's out. That's what I want to Java. See more. They see goes. All of his martial. I can make shots because of missed thousands. Yeah. He said I'm better because I've had my shop black. He said because mean turning the ball over I know enough not the turnover right as because of my losses. It goes to the door. Right. I know how to win. Yeah. That's why people will never lost. Sometimes a terrible loses seem to lose. Yeah. Chapter one in high school one in Qasr, gopro, a may. He is a go. No, he just he's he likes to everybody likes to win. I want to hear that. So with nobody wants to lose, right? Some people don't know how to take loss to say the dignity of somebody to beat me after respect the person that beat me, even if I'm better than you. I have to respect what he did tonight. Yeah. My grandfather says to me I after game man, he saw John induce Greece. It knowing that you did the best you can do today because if you could do more you would have done it with you. As a while Senlis. You cheat us up. He says you did all you could do tonight some nights that was the best. You can do right night. Take what you did tonight and work on right at ESI. Right, man. You're right. Some nights like you asked me one time during the game. It's the first thing you walked up to me the kit credit crossed you over. And you came really I don't I don't recall that it was a it was a real. It was the first time you've ever did first time. He said dad, what's ident- would be as I crossed. The kid. That was a nice move. I said, but you know, what he does. Now. Right. Exactly you cutting. You caught him the next time. I said, yeah. You learn from got you. But he won't get you get right then. And getting got Michael Jordan got got by Alan Iverson. You off you saw Michael hit the floor. Like, oh, I know. That's that's when I switched from. Yeah. So those moments are real. So I think going back to say shown those flaws, I think important to everybody. I guess what I'm sitting here as a man women about pregnancy. And what they go through. I'm just advocating when a man says what he had to give a big like there's a new movement in the country. What a man touched about being a single father or divorced dad, even even show a bomb, although I laugh at it's like it's like being divorced, dad. Well, I was the divorce that value issues going at that divorced as still chasing young girls stuff. I get what you're saying. I'm not gonna head to white over on the bus like that. Right. 'cause I love Michelle Obama. But divorced ads weren't calling to. I've nobody's ever give him anything. And I I was so glad that women who've not been given the do and sometimes just to suffer. But me as a black man in America as us to take that hit to you know. And I'm glad that we can talk about. I'm glad she can talk about it. But as a man, I'm I'm most say, I work hard to. It's sometimes we give up things. We don't talk about. Right. You know? So I just was glad to see Bela say, no, she did show them to decide. Right. It took a little bit of the mask off. It'll cause we don't look we really don't know much about her other of greatness, right? I don't know how they remained a stay so private, but I mean. Yeah. It's a miracle. It's a miracle. They got some great security. Yep. Yep. They do a maybe that's just how they live. She's not out to I mean candidate chooses to be ways at he chooses to be seen the way saying, yeah, VISA chooses. This is how I want to be saying, I'm not gonna do this and this and this and this right? It knows it's not for your public consumption. Right. But yeah. Yeah. I was just. Yeah. I was just curious as far as that goes in her show in that part because I thought it was very other than that though. I mean, yeah, I like my main point. I just thought it was savage on her part. Just shaking his remember. She knows doing it's a Queen. Right. And you all about down exactly about damn bees. Yeah. Exactly. Well, how we doing on time to time is up. I time is six minutes over if you could talk about one what they Netflix thought it out Netflix. Oh, yes. I did want to point this out because the prices are going up people if you didn't realize it for current subscribers it's going from what ninety nine to twelve ninety nine for to stream from two devices in the if you want to from four devices it's going up to fifteen ninety-nine from I think it was at thirteen ninety nine CD eggs up little they've been slowly going up slowly going up. And then it if you like where new subscriber, I think starting January, you're already paying these prices. But people like us should be getting Greenwich. We get grandfather, actually. But I, but the thing is that's the crazy thing about it is they can they can raise the price as much as they want and we can complain. We're still going to pay for it. It's it's a right to raise the prices, especially when you have to pay symbolic twenty million dollars for his next other special. Yeah. Equal. I'm good with that. I'm good with yet. And I will give you the best quality. I can get break. So yeah, they've been shooting out the emails pretty much by may. We're all gonna be paying that. So I just wanted to stop that out there for people who don't know and then are going. So that way, you're not surprised when the Bill comes and you're like, wait. Me George net. So everybody get ready, and then probably two years from now, we're all going to be paying twenty bucks a month for it. So just save up for that. Well to give a shot out to joystick.

"one quick" Discussed on Blerd Empire
"One yet. Well, this generation of like, the the what I call it the Robert Downey junior like the ones, I know the oh Joe folks, I call it the old folks avengers, right, right? So okay. They're all phasing out. So who knows they'll probably who knows if they all die at the end of game or like do. Due to depressed above lose my job at rail. So you do that to me. I mean, I feel like it's they probably won't go. I would love it. If they just like straight up just kill them off because I feel like that'd be there's not a lot of loss in the marvel ever if they they got dust wing it exact. Save the world. They have to die knowing they saved the world. Exactly. I all. I I have a good feeling that at least Tony starts dying at least. Yeah. I feel because for me I feel like that would be like a deep space, especially if they do it. Right. If they give Tony stark like a really great epoch death. That'd be that'd be huge. That'd be powerful. And like I said, I mean marvel they need some more loss in order for us to feel anything because we already know everyone that disappeared and in the last one they're coming back like working homeless of them combined. I mean, they all got sequels. So you they have to come back. Come back to do to know that my guy. Yeah. Exactly this much. Watch the integrate military movie somebody gotta die. This bridge is other people. They coming back. Exactly because you know, you can't build this like epic. And then everyone comes out. Okay. Obviously. That's cool. That's great. You want everyone to survive? But for them to for there to be at least for me that extra weight of emotional investment in there has to be something at risk in. Okay. Especially with the villain like Thanos like those. It'd be to villain. He knew about basketball. Somebody has the beat themselves. I think those doesn't beat himself. Right. I don't think they can beat here. I think there hasn't been we just like sit again, it's like LeBrun, Jay. He has to beat himself. Well, technically Thor what which which was frustrating about the first one. Yeah. Floor could have beat him or just got cocky instead of just stabbing him in the head. You like Jack stabbed him in the chest. And was like I told John combat, blah, blah, blah. That was that was written that way. Yeah. Of course, there's real Jack. Right. Exactly. Chapter said. Oh, yeah. But with that so again now, they got all the characters. So once this phase is out then I'm sure they're going to reboot X men, which it's going to be a shame. I don't know what they're gonna do with Hugh Jackman like out of all there's only so many actors where they like cannon perfectly. Shame train. He should train delivers next. I'm just your training Jota. Like, all of a sudden, this new was shows up for you. Right. Thinking they can we who everybody is. But keep Hugh Jackman some way, shape or form because he is perfect. Yeah. He he was other than like, but was funny as the other than the height like a lot of people don't know that will green supposed to be short like five four or something like that. But so when they cast them, Hugh Jackman. That's right. It was like change everything. Like what the hell in the comics? So that was a good change. That was it works for his character. Although like, it got rid of the whole short man complex volume's always upset. But yeah. So we'll see what they do with that. And then fantastic for I don't they got. They got to do it. Right, man. They gotta do fantastic fantastic. Going back. My generation. Fantastic. Four was probably what the coolest of all of them. I mean, Ben Richards. Histoire do all of them were cool. And he's one of the few. Who else married successfully married to woman with powers it a for together. Well, this is true. I mean, it was it was the family unit because the funny is a lot of people don't know that fantastic. Four was really created for marvel to kind of combat the Justice league in DC because. Delivered the forest and play pimps because DC already established all these heroes increase Justice league marvel didn't have anything like that. So they're like staying what can we do? And that's where the fantastic four came from. So that's why you know in the cinematic universe. It's funny because DC so far behind marvel comes to the films, but in the comics they were so far ahead. Catch. What tripped up DC? Why did DC nut? See what the what this was going to be. I think it was a mix of the biggest thing was my my belief is that they got stuck on the Christopher Nolan effect, you know, because the dark Knight series was doing so well where they were like we don't need to like. All the candidates together. Okay. Because the one thing that DC had over marvel was marble, connecting all these characters. Cool. But you could always say there was always something missing about each movie. You know, they were so focused on getting all these characters together to build up to the avengers that you could say they left a lot on the tables falls as far as the individual characters went where the dark Knight really just focused on expanding one individual character, which was Batman in Christopher Nolan. My did a great job is vision. All that stuff was great. So they were like we don't need to do that. Because we're doing ninety seven batmans, right? Exactly that it had one man we had ninety sled that and especially after the dark Knight. Like that's to me. That's still the standard is far superhero movies. There's no severe movie better than the dark Knight and mainly because of the joker and just like how the villain was portrayed for that other than I played. But. Nothing that blatant glazing and hold another category right now. Right. Exactly. So once the trilogy ended, I think that's when I hit them like crap we need something else now. Yeah. So now, and then that's when they went into the Zach Snyder. Phase where they tried to reboot everything, but they tried to do it so quick they wear marble time. Marvelous patient exactly, and that's what you said. Your second. You take your time because we got and they suck up on them. And they did the right thing. Exactly. And yeah, I mean say what you want about all the marvel movies. I have my opinions as you know, about a lot of them this, but they took their time, and they built up to something amazing. That's never been done before the state. They made was when he left with destructive. This always on the cyclops side clubs now the thing about expert. The only thing was when they left class fitting. Oh, let's see that was FOX though docks. But see now they don't have to worry about that anymore. But hey, leftist glasses spin it. Yeah. Did you really leave his glasses spending that we don't talk about that? That was that they off on that way off on. Your second. You say I know right now, we don't talk about that. Can we say cyclops, whereas a couple marvel movies that you just don't mention anymore, and that is one of them? But to now say bring all that back into it the merger. They got it all back. Okay. Now, it's all housed together. And it all goes into their new streaming service Disney, plus, which literally they have huge all their contracts. Forever. All Disney movies getting rid of the vault there. Disney vault. Where movies would go in the vault, and you couldn't see him for like, however, many? So they have rented. It's like everything it's like prince all the news released. Everything's going to be available. Okay. And then they have new shows Star Wars shows that they have new special marvel shows like they they own everything. So there's so much. They can do the got the Simpsons since they still Bill the FOX. I will go live. Well, the FOX, right? We we get cancel exalt. Originally started as a member of the Disney family Sinbad show, nineteen Ninety-four was that was dizzy ABC Disney. So you know, because a lot of people don't know about so, yeah, let's show is one thousand nine hundred one season. I was so headed my we I was a video game developer I worked with internet. I had internet connections. My house at FOX like this was this this can you just be a dad, but this is the new and ethnic cancel me about six months later. Everything's just blew up. And they said, oh, I opted to kids tested, my video games. I was just using them. Right. The woman who's in charge. The caseworker made me feel so bad. I brought to brother or sister, which was raging. Yeah. They were going to so. But now just I know you've been avoiding it. I know now. Well, the Fisher were came out a funnel yesterday fish award that real has been cancelled. And I understand because first of all we lost a real friend. Kevin who's one of the producers? Would quote created the show rails friends, and we lost him a passed away to home season. Yeah. So it it I don't I don't know how real product to continue. And I I know that a lot to do with it. I know that that Disney didn't keep all the FOX Bill projects. Yeah. They also got the other shod like Dylan on on FOX with the mutants. The gifted the gifted the gift is go to miss the gift it because I wanted to see what they were going. They were hidden such a great direction. Right. I hate what show gets canceled especially as by. And I don't know. Now what's going to rate? That's what I'm glad Amazon grabbed expanse. This is true. Yes. Do some cool stuff with it. Yeah. So the show's case will be amazed. You'll bad blood. I really real. I was fun to get back on TV is got me. Aspire to go do some more things L is blowing up. He's going to do a trade in movies, right things. He's doing animation. He's producing things for other people. So is really busy Jordan. Joe is Jordan L Jones is talented kid. He's gonna do stuff out. Jessica Larry's ever knows her. She had seven billion followers stuff is good TV only took it to another level. So I think the show was good for everybody the crew. And it was great staff was getting crew awesome. Yeah. Okay. Anything you're going to miss about? It. I missed it. A what you miss going to work? I don't miss driving. Right. I was gonna say that was new for me driving away to Culver city taking almost two hours, two and a half hours. Sometimes three hours drive. It was a long time. So sad do that every day in LA. Right. And I hated it made me respect people more than that. Every everyday who live up Carita people live at. Orange County y'all I feel like you were more more busy net being home during the show than you were actually traveling everything I thought, hey, man, I'm gonna pick up new instruments. I'm gonna play piano. I doubt while doing his TV show. I'm actually going to do more. I did less right. When I was on the road. It was it takes a different kind of time. But what I would've done. I would've Senate. My just move different outta have a bass guitar down there. I would have 'em down there. So I would just live down to like I did when I was doing my show. I had everything needed. They're nice. Yeah. Okay. So with the shows, I mean, one of the things I think for those listening if you guys aren't aware yet, we actually started launching new web series like docu series in the sense called on the road with Sindbad. Yes. Which is following you. Crazy, exactly. And so we started releasing some videos, which we shot I would say probably about it was like the end of December. Yeah. And so we're put. That out, but we've been we've been shooting stuff like this year. So there's a lot of content. We're going to put I was like man, I you know, ADHD that'd be production company has ADHD. Let's do this way this voice because I still craziness. Go hit me in the get to some of us get this on about like the fact that I'm not tied to one way or another. I'm not scared of technology. But sometimes I always technology. Let's just take this. Right. And I I was good at same small cameras. Have you take even black magic sometime iphones? We found. Simpson had had the microphone that was go, right? Into the to the iphone lo said, let's use that wireless. We're all good. So you know, we're able to shoot one hundred different ways. Right. And is it time to big camera time for the small camera. And we're getting it. This is the year,

Our podcast is now we can just clip him on us. We're not to have any wires from a microphone running up and down our shirts and stuff. So this is what we're using. So this audio will be good says, we talk about it. But they are they pick up everything they picked up my wife. Welcome downstairs. I know. We we had to wait before we started the podcast. No one could speak in the house. No animals can be rolling around. No, no dog because they're they're too. Good note. No rabbit can be outside rights. It's almost this is the greatest spy, Mike.

That was that was a good God almost two hundred three hundred feet right there. Right. Exactly. What the neighbor just say? Oh. Just wondering. Now, I think you're just hearing things. The neighbor says on the cost street, man. Well, I know you have to go. So this is a rush. I don't like usually rush. But sometimes less is more. This is true.

And then by Friday, you're out on the road. The this is longer because I did Oakland. Then I went to we would. Well, I would have been two weeks. Still we went to NABC show. Right. Exactly.

Don't just a little alternate headphones down like, I'm I'm like me. But not how good it was good. Okay. I like me. But that much now that we got the levels, right? Yeah. Yes. So speaking of any d-, so we were there last week. Yeah. Last week. And so the people listening who maybe didn't listen to our second episode kinda give a breakdown of what any be is. It'd be is the national association of broadcasters local back with the history of any be it used to just be broadcast engineers, that's why he went to photo cameras, and routers, and grass valley editors and stuff that if you were not in that tech room in that back room that made all the magic happens for TV.

But as world change, it became more consumer friendly, and again came up to hide cameras and people want to shoot movies and hi eight people say. What we can also make this stuff up like movies week when they were starting to shoot digital video. That's when you saw more of the regular people. I call it going to the show still tickets still nerds. But hey, how can I be involved in this game? And you know, still there was a high tech place for people with big money.
