"Two female are all painted white obfuscating the enormous contribution of trans women or people of color like johnson and rivera. Who were in the fan of the gay rights movement of all the things marsha p johnson was known for she was probably best known for being herself and fearing no judgment for dressing and living as a woman even as she struggled to survive on the streets of new york or new jersey in nineteen. Forty five as michael's marsha began dressing in girls clothes as a child which did not go over at all. Well in their conservative christian family after high school marcia moved to greenwich village and legally changed her name. If you ask her what the piece stood for she would say pay it no mind that was also what she said the people who began to pry into her personal business which by the way it is never okay to do unless you work in a doctor's office. There's really no legitimate reason to ask someone you just met about their genitalia. In new york marsha struggled to make ends meet often ending up homeless and supporting herself as a sex worker. She also had to contend with mental health issues and constant police harassment. Still she found joy a drag queen amidst the nightlife of christopher street. Marsha scoured thrift shops to make all your own costumes and quickly became a prominent fixture in the lgbtq community as a drag mother helping homeless and struggling lgbtq youth. She even toured internationally with the hot peaches drag theater company but she always came back to the village. Marsha was an eccentric known for her flamboyant hats and jewelry which ensured she stood out in public. Her sense of style and pronounced self assuredness even caught the eye of andy warhol who included her in his ladies and gentlemen photo series. It was in the drag community that johnson i met sylvia rivera born ray rivera in nineteen fifty one. Sylvia lived most of her life in or near new york city. She was abandoned by her father early. In life and became an orphan at three years old. When her mother died of suicide sylvia was then raised by her venezuelan grandmother who disapproved her effeminate behaviour. After the grandmother caught sylvia wearing makeup in fourth grade she kicked sylvia. Out of the house. I reiterate in fourth grade sylvia was eleven years old and homeless also inevitably. She had to support herself through sex work. Things began to look for her when she was taken in by the local community of drag queens who gave her the name sylvia despite all of her own hardships. Sylvia was always more concerned with the welfare of others. Her activism began during the civil rights movement and continued through vietnam war protests and second wave feminism as someone who contended with systemic poverty drug addiction and racism sylvia used her voice for unity sharing her stories pain and struggles to show people in her community that they were not alone. She amplified the voices of the most vulnerable members of the gay community homeless youth. Gay inmates in prison and transgender people. Sylvia and marsha founded the street transvestite action revolutionaries or star star was a radical political collective but also provided housing and support homeless queer youth and sex workers. Rivera and johnson were the mothers of the household star is considered by many to be a groundbreaking organization in the queer liberation movement and a model for others to come rivera. Got the idea for star during a near long sit in to protest the cancellation of dances. That had been planned by the christopher street liberation day committee the organizers of the first gay pride parade these dances were meant to be fundraisers for legal medical and housing needs in. The gay community star was for the street. Gay people the street homeless people and anybody that needed help at that time. Sylvia's said in an interview. Marsh and i'd always sneaked people into our hotel rooms. Marsh and i decided to get a building. We were trying to get away from the mafia's control at the bars. Together with the gay liberation front star hosted a fundraising dance to raise enough money to purchase the star house. A four bedroom apartment in a rundown building in the east village lacking electricity or heat. Rivera and johnson worked hard to get star house into shape and keep their kids that sheltered. They kept star house alive the same way. They kept themselves alive through sex work but they were only able to keep it open for about a year. Sex work was as it is now a dangerous profession especially in nineteen seventies new york during one encounter. Marsha was shot. The bullet was so close to her spine. She would have been paralyzed if doctors tried to remove it. She spent the rest of her life suffering from intense pain. Thanks to that. Bullet star itself would only officially continue for two more years but sylvia and marsha never gave up the fight they fought for the sexual orientation nondiscrimination act to stop discrimination in employment housing public accommodations education credit and the exercise of civil rights on the basis of sexual orientation bona smacked on the topic of credit and discrimination. I got this fact directly from a banker earlier this week. The last known incident of a woman having to get a man to cosign a bank product with her because she was a woman occurred in. I'm going to give you second. Guess what year. Nineteen eighty six. A woman trying to get a business loan had to have her seventeen year. Old son as a cosigner. Please point that out to anyone who says they. Don't need feminism. Because otherwise that stuff would still be happening. The sexual orientation nondiscrimination act was defeated in nineteen seventy one eighty three and ninety three ultimately finally passing in two thousand and two thirty one years after it was first introduced. Their next big action was to join other activists in the campaign for intro. Four seventy five. A municipal bill which gay activists alliance helped introduce and which sought protections against sexual orientation discrimination many queer and trans people criticized g. a. for ignoring protection for trans individuals which they believed was an initial move to make the bill more palatable to waspy lawmakers trans exclusion within the queer community became a major issue when the gender non conforming people and drag queens had to go to the back of the nineteen seventy-three christopher street liberation day parade as well as being excluded from speaking on stage rivera and fellow drag queen. Lee brewster storm the stage. During a feminist activists speech rivera shouted you go to bars because of what drag queens did for you and these. Ms tell us to stop being ourselves. Criticized other gay liberation activists their assimilationist agenda and led a chant of gay power. The feminists speaker took the mic again. Decrying drag as misogynistic and demeaning after the rally rivera chose to leave the movement for years. Moving upstate we died in nineteen seventy-three the fourth anniversary of stonewall she wrote in queens in exile the forgotten ones. That's when we were told. We were a threat and an embarrassment to women because lesbians felt offended.

Nicolas Flamel and the Philosopher's Stone

"If you're a harry potter fan the name nicholas fla mel is probably bringing some bells for you. Nicholas and his wife. Paranoia are mentioned in jk rollings. I harry potter and the philosopher's stone. They're both over six hundred years old. Because in the novel nicholas has discovered a magical artifact that makes him immortal in the united states. this object is known as the sorcerer's stone but for simplicity. I'm gonna stick to the british term philosopher's stone now supposedly this stone is incredibly powerful legends about it have been around for about two thousand years. They say it has the power to turn any metal into gold. And it's connected to this beverage called the of life which keeps you alive forever. It's not super clear of the philosopher's stone makes the elixir. Or if it actually is the elixir or if the recipe for the stone is close enough to the elixir. That if you can make one you can make the other either way. The central idea is consistent. If you discover the philosopher's stone you can become immortal. Ancient accounts describe the stone. Bright red and it wasn't really a stone at all. it was actually more like a powder or a fluid something you'd add to a bubbling vile to create anything. You want and i do mean anything. See alchemists just trying to get rich and achieve immortality. They were trying to unlock the fundamental secrets of the universe. Like why lead is led and knock gold or why me and not someone else and the idea was that with a for stone you could transform anything or anyone into whatever you want it. And it's not like there's just one stone because according to out chemical tradition you can actually make a philosopher's stone so researchers weren't necessarily trying to locate one. They were trying to create it. Supposedly the closest anyone ever got was this guy named nicholas flannel.

Interview with Tuvia Tenenbom

"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself. You know if you kill by the palestinians you know it doesn't mean that you don't like jews you know if you're critical officially doesn't mean that you're antisemites if you are cup only fizzle and if the only people who care about our justice palestinians because you killed by nobody else. Don't get about. Muslims in china while being tortured by million. Your don't care about syria. Don't care about libya you don't care about lebanon. You don't care about you.

Cramer calls on U.S. to build factories to address chip shortage, unemployment

"As the pandemic gradually draws to a close. We've still got to national emergencies that we had to talk about a man money. A horrendously high unemployment rate and the semiconductor shorts is causing major problems for us manufacturing and competitiveness. We need more chips and we need more jobs so why. Kill two birds with one stone. It's time for our government to invest in building the biggest and best complex of semiconductor foundries. That's the factories in the world. And we can do this now. This kind of initiative went out of style decades ago but we know it works because the government just did it with operation warp speed the co vaccine program that got us to trick vaccines in less than a year. Were on a roll. Let's keep it. I don't need to explain. Employments national emergency but what south with the massive government back semiconductor foundry pro. Okay we just heard from general motors. They have all these new indian vehicles but they simply can't make them because they're sending books shortage and modern cars require a lot of tech ford said the same thing could cost them one to two billion this year bleed. You're gonna start hearing about this shortage. Constantly dan we the us really havoc with all sorts of industries and making us less competitive and perhaps even hostage country hostage to a bigger chip customer. The pr see. We got to get ahead of this. Now some of this shortages natural thanks to cova. We've got millions of new homes. That require a lot. Har- we're eating these chips like doritos at halftime. But some of you thanks to globalization are sitting been able to outsource their manufacturing most couple of huge asian operators taiwan's semi which is now the biggest samsung. These are both incredible mazing. Well run companies but they also get so production capacity that they have they hit the entire world including demand from china that hits american companies extra hard because new of our businesses run on just in time ordering. They don't want to sit in a lot of extra components it just by the chips when they need them. That's a quick way to make money save money until it's a shortage. Now that's where we find ourselves. Our companies can't get enough chips because there's not enough. Production were wide and that lack of chips is hurting all sorts of manufacturing including the formation. Gm and ford now. There are two ways to approaches. We can throw up our hands and baked samsung taiwan semi to build more plants. That's been our strategy or anywhere for that matter or we can roll up our sleeves. Like operation warp speed. Remember today when everyone get tested raw. Got javert here can roll up our sleeves and get this job done ourselves. If we're supposed to be the most powerful country in we'd be able to manufacture semiconductors for heaven's sake it's our industry so let me tell you what needs to happen. You might not know it. But america's best tech industry the most intellectual property that is anywhere in tech is in the semiconductor capital equipment space. That's lam research. Kelly tinker applied materials. They had machines that we need to make chips meaning while building gigantic simtek foundries can put more people to work and just about any other research project much more than a much than highway than a bridge. Why stop at roads and bridges and we re establish yourself as a whole new kingpin in manufacturing industry that used to dominate. And hey biden's pick for commerce secretary gina raimondo. She was a venture. Capitals governor of rhode island. I got into politics. She'd be the perfect champion for this project. We can take advantage of low interest rates to issue fifty year semiconductor savings bonds to raise the money for this project partner up with the private sector then. These businesses can pay back. uncle sam. Production gets rolling or chips. Defense ships all sorts of internet of things. Chips should be able to make this stuff domestically in the best in the world. Honestly it's insane. We outsource our semiconductor manufacturing to taiwan south korea. When they're within spitting distance of our biggest wattle china. I love taiwan. I love south korea but we ever get into a shooting war with the chinese. For heaven's sake they'll be right in the middle of it. Hopefully it never comes to that but why would even taking that chance. How much would this cost. We know semi spending up to twenty billion to boost its output. And they're very good at what they do. Let's say let's let's borrow one hundred billion dollars in savings bonds to make the us more semiconductor independent over the next few years but we have to start immediately to alleviate the shortage people intensive national imperative blueprint ready customer for the suppliers. Ready to help so soon. To be secretary raimondo. You've been on the show. Let's get the loan just chip ongoing going and put an end to this chip.

Beijing lists grievances against Australia, giving warning to other countries with tense China relations

"Relations between beijing and canberra deteriorating. Awhile have created spectacularly in recent months. Australia has excluded while away from australia's five g network. Australia has cold for an international investigation into the origins of the covid nineteen pandemic. It's spoken up in support of hong kong and protested against china's treatment of its wiegand minority and china has bristled at all of these moves. Some of china's responses have been merely rhetorical and calls medic including crudely goading australia. You've alleged crimes committed by string. Troops in afghanistan others had more measurable effects. Devastating tariffs on australian exports to china including especially ruinous levies on australian. Wine has china decided to full out with australia. How should australia or any other country. China has a popat react or adjust. And is there any way back to cooperation with china for australia or anyone else. This is the foreign desk. My advice to punish morrison repeatedly has do more say lis- do more is in fact. A series of concrete measures enhancing national security pows enhancing now fundamental economic cow enhancing population growth and strengthening our alliances and relationships with countries around the world. Or just the united states but in southeast asia and beyond as well so this kind of patriotism and chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of covid domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its cover up and handling. I'm so getting the country tonight. This way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be spending so it's really two birds. One stone the chinese government should be totally a shined of this past. It diminishes them in the world is hello and welcome to the foreign. I'm andrew muller. China is not a nation known for its impulsively where foreign policy is concerned but using tends to act carefully and deliberately so it should be assumed that it is acting carefully and deliberately towards australia for a look at what china is doing and why china is doing. It joined first of all from beijing by sophia yan china correspondent for the daily telegraph severe festival. I think what we're trying to establish here is whether this is a specific row between china and australia or something. We might see more of in china's dealings with western democracies in general but we will start with stralia. Does it strike you. That china is going out of. Its way to pick a fight with australia. Or is this something. That's just kind of happened. Organically absolutely china's definitely targeting australia. It's been going for some time and it's obviously hit a peak. Now it's every day. There seems to be something new in the sputtered. Diplomatic spat between beijing and camera. And what beijing's really trying to do is to make australia of retail. Australia is a major. Us ally part of the five. The lions and australia matches on values with america. So hunting. Australia is a way for china to send a message to other. Us allies or the country's just thinking about siding with washington and to try to prevent them from considering policies that china dislikes bans on chinese tech firms over national security risks while we issue for instance even territorial disputes in the south china sea being public about stances over hong kong and taiwan china does not want countries to get involved with what it thinks is its own backyard so pressuring australia. This way is just one way to show. Hey this is what can happen to your country if you dare to take on. There's an upside to this too. It's certain swagger for the domestic audience to show that this all powerful country china can finally stand up to the west. You have to remember that. For the chinese government and for many chinese people there is a very painful history and memory of what's called the quit century accumulation. That was the hundred years before the communist party took power in nineteen forty nine during which many say the glorious chinese empire crumbled at the hands of foreign powers. The brits the russians japanese china at the time lost almost all the wars fought. And actually that's when hong kong was ceded to the brits so this kind of patriotism in chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of cova kovic domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its botch cover up in handling and still getting the country two nights in this way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be sending so it's really two birds. One stone does a number of things going on there but let's just focus on one of them because it is a proximate cause of china's irritation with australia and indeed china's irritation with a few other countries. Which is far away and other chinese companies being locked out of five g networks. Why does china perceive that as an argument worth starting because it's not imaginable that any of these countries are going to change their minds. Way is in a way national champion. It's a private company. It's not state owned. But of course any company that succeeds in china is in some ways states approved so to succeed here. You definitely need to have certain. Party officials Tests the quench relationships and people in high positions in your corner and so while we the company that really shows and reflects the rise of china. It's headquartered in shenzhen which just two three decades ago with a rice patty backwater. Now it's silicon valley hub of china and this company itself really does show how quickly the economy here has grown china now. The world's second largest economy in china trauma very broad level wants to be taken seriously on the world stage and so attacking hallway company. That many would consider really national. Champion is attacking the status. That china now thinks it should have on the world stage so it's ironic also that there's concern from beijing. That other nations are talking about who as a national security risk because china itself has long said that it wants to keep certain industries telecoms utilities oil and gas within its own country at state-owned enterprises. Because they themselves. Beijing is concerned about the very same issue that foreign players could come into the country. Take a big share of the market and therefore be competitive domestically. They didn't want to see control here to foreign companies over the issue of national security. So it's actually a bit ironic for china to now be upset with other nations for saying that a chinese company coming in to build critical national infrastructure. Whether that's a nuclear plant or the telecoms network but then to say hey. You can't say that this is a risk. We don't pose a risk. it's it's it's it's. It's not very fairly for china to be saying that other nations

Digital Tools to Measure Blood Sugar & Metabolic Health with Dr Casey Means

"Well, hey everybody, welcome back to the dr. Jockers functional nutrition podcast and you guys know that one of my favorite topics to talk about is blood sugar insulin and metabolic health and we had a great interview recently with Dodge van Dyckman. We went in depth on that and this is almost like a follow-up to it because we're going to talk about really the personalized approach to really looking at your blood sugar and how it's responding to the foods that you're consuming and so my guess is dr. Casey means she is the chief medical officer at levels and she is a Stanford trained physician again, chief medical officer and co-founder of the metabolic whole company levels, and she's the associate editor of the international Journal of disease reversal and prevention and he can find more information about her at levels health.com and we're going to talk about what the best food. Are for blood sugar management for metabolic health and how that could be variable depending on how your body is responding to the foods that you consume. We're talking about personalized medicine. So dr. Casey that joining us here. Thank you so much for having me. Dr. Jockers. So happy to be here. Well, yes for sure and I've heard of several of your interviews on other podcasts and you really do a great job of explaining how important blood sugar stability is and you know, this this new technology that we have now continuous blood glucose monitoring. And so what I love to do is start with your story and you know how you went from Stamford and trained in in medicine to now kind of branching out into a functional nutrition Integrative Medicine approach. Yeah. Absolutely. So like you mentioned I trained as a medical doctor conventional medicine. I trained at Stamford did my undergrad and Med medical school there and then I went on to become a head and neck surgeon. So I was deep in the surgical birth. Hold for about five years and in my role as a head and neck surgeon, which is really treating the conditions of the like your nose and throat. So an ENT surgeon something I noticed was sort of hitting me back, you know after about five years, like wow pretty much all of the conditions that I'm treating are inflammatory in nature. They're all related in some way to chronic inflammation. So some of the things you think about are like sinus infection, which is inflammation of the sinuses and chronic ear disease, which is inflammation of the eustachian tube the tube that connects the nose to the ear you get, you know inflammation in that tube and you get past building up in the ear, you've got Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which is inflammation of the thyroid you've got things like vocal cord granulomas which are inflammatory masses of the vocal chords and then lots of head and neck cancer, of course, which we know cancer has very much relationship between inflammation. So it was really interesting to me sort of step back and say wow. This is sort of a very common theme between a lot of the conditions that I'm treating and in some way it didn't make total sense wage. That we would be treating those conditions with surgery because chronic inflammation is fundamentally a issue with how our immune system is responding to perceived or real threats in in the environment in our bodies and thoughts were more were learning about how chronic inflammation is in many ways really rooted in our everyday exposures. So what we eat the toxins were exposed to in our food air and water, you know, how much sleep we get the stress in our lives how much or how little exercise were getting our microbiome all of these things have a direct relationship to chronic inflammation. So I'm treating it with this sort of very reactionary invasive more anatomic approach with surgery, you know, there was some sort of missing missing link there and certainly surgeries are really important in beautiful art but phone no other conditions really rooted in chronic inflammation. It kind of got me thinking there might be a better way to approach us. What could we be doing what sort of really personalized dietary and lifestyle interventions really foundational help to really quell bath. Chronic immune response. Well that threat the body is sensing and potentially keep Patients Out of the operating room. You're not going to prevent all surgeries, but I certainly think there's some low-hanging fruit we can do to help minimize the severity of the disease is and hopefully never have to get have them get that really end of the line where they see me in the or going under the knife, which is a really serious serious thing. So that really got me on this journey of trying to understand the root cause of disease and that led me to functional medicine and so I actually stepped away from the operating room got training with Institute for functional medicine and really started thinking of disease a lot differently. I started seeing things much more as symptoms and diseases often being the branches on a very similar true and that tree that we that that sort of route that that connects a lot of seemingly disparate diseases often comes down to things like inflammation and even deeper Inflammation metabolic dysfunction this was talked about so beautifully on your episode recently with dr. Bed big man who is talking about metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance, but was so interesting is that you know in our country. It's it's not that about 88% of Americans have met have signs of metabolic dysfunction that was shown in a study a couple of years ago from UNC that 88% of adult Americans have at least one biomarker of metabolic dysfunction and metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance, which are kind of two sides of the same coin really can directly feed into inflammation. So it's all really created and what's sort of hopeful about this is that those are things that are readily modifiable with smart choices in and how we live and what we expose ourselves to so became really interested in that and and really this system the network biology movement, which is really stepping back and saying, you know, we've we've conventionally looked at diseases in in conventional medicine. As isolated silos, you've got depression. You've got obesity. You've got diabetes. You've got prostate cancer. You've got IBS and these are all things that are different and we treat them separately with totally different with medications a totally different mechanisms. But when you step back and you use sort of more advanced research techniques, like whole genome sequencing and proteomics, how can we actually see? What are the molecular links between diseases and you create a web a network a system and that's really the root of systems and network biology. And when you start doing that you see these connections and I think the future of Iraq and its really treating conditions at that level at the connections between diseases cuz when you do that you can you know, hit a lot more birds with one stone that's sort of a negative metaphor, but you know what, I mean, it's it's it's got instead of playing whack-a-mole. You're really you can have multiple various effects with with some single interventions effect that root cause physiology. So my career really moved

Recap: Trump's NBC Town Hall And Biden's ABC Town Hall

"Town halls. Last night, ABC News George Stephanopoulos posting Joe Biden, the former vice president of the United States, now the Democrat nominee for president, Donald Trump. Meanwhile, the president of the United States was on NBC with Savannah Guthrie. Yes, There was no debate last night. Yes, it was cancelled by the debate commission. Yes, Steve Scully, the guy who was supposed to moderate the debate. It turns out, he lied about being hacked on his Twitter account. So his life isn't going too well right now, but we still got a debate. Savannah, Guthrie and President Trump were debating one another for almost the entire town hall. They were just cats and dogs all over each other the entire time. Very little time for voters toe get a chance to question the president of the United States. Although there was a funny moment. 27 listen to this woman. She's a Biden lead leaning Supporter, writes that she's leaning towards Joe Biden. Her name is Paulette Dale. And here's what she had to say the moment she had a chance to question the president of the United States question. Evening, Mr President, I have to say you have a great smile. The guy's hands. You're so handsome when you smile. Thanks. Mom was totally fan Girling. She was She was like Backstreet Boys, just like boy banding all over again, you know I don't think she's voting for Biden. I just have this hunch again. There's another producer who I think lost a jobless. There's a lot of unemployment to based on the town hall last night. It's still funny. And by the way she was being attacked, of course, like because everything is the next potential crisis. Everything's all out war. You're never allowed. Teo. You know, you give comfort to the enemy. So just You have a great smile. You should smile more. I love your smile and being destroyed for that. Well, that's a big thing on the left. You don't tell her where I'm tired of being constantly told that I should smile more because you never tell menace smile more that That's a thing for the For the women on the left. Yeah, well, maybe she was two birds. One stone She got in there last night, and it made it Was added a couple of men to the smile equation, adding President Trump to it. Oh, and last night. Also Joe Biden remember facing off against Stephanopoulos. This was a tough one cut 40. You know? Finally, Finally we get to the issue of Hunter Biden in a national setting. Here's that moment last night. That's right now it didn't come up at all. We've sighted and Garfunkel were there. How did I miss this? Nobody. Simon Garfunkel in the entire 90 minutes. 30 different question. Town Hall. Joe Biden doesn't get a single one about the newly emerging evidence that he appears tohave corrupted American foreign policy to the benefit of his family's financial interests. Not a single question about this last night, not a surprise. But ABC. Throws in with on overwhelming effort by the media and the big tech companies to suppress an important story that the New York Post has been breaking every single day for the last couple days. No, it was. It was just so amazing. And I'm glad that I watched them separately. Just because for me, I don't have the ability to just pay attention. Both. I'm afraid, miss something. So, Watson separately, I will say, though. A job in town hall. I just started playing a game on my phone because they would ask a question. And Joe Biden would start answering the question. And then he would meander through a whole bunch of different topics. Everything that was going on in his head. He would meander all over the place. I was waiting for the big giant, you know, Biden Gaff which wasn't there didn't happen. I'm just gonna float this and I could be 100% wrong. So this is just a thought that has gone through my head last night. He He was just talking so much. I thought somebody put him on Ritalin. He was just just going and go. He was taking like Barack Obama length to answer a question. Yeah, they say that he stayed for 30 minutes after the town hall and kept answering questions. He kept talking forever. ABC never heard that footage released it by the way they should. If he have cameras and a microphone on him. We should see the footage of his Q and a with the voters after that thing was done last night released Joe Biden. I do want to get to this. This. He was asked about court packing last night. Cut 45 with George Stephanopoulos. Here is here is his new answer on court packing. How about that question of expanding the court hears what you said exactly one year ago tonight at a Democratic debate, he said, I would not get into court packing. I would not packed the court. That's not what you're saying Now is the nomination of Judge Barrett Reason enough to rethink your position. What is the nomination and what I wanted to do? George? You know if I had answered the question directly, then all the focus is beyond what's Biden going to do? If he wins instead of on? Is it appropriate? What is going on now? And it should stay. This is the thing that the president loves to do always take our eye off the ball. What's his state? One of these, Peter suggested is and there's a number of constitutional scholars have suggested as well that there are at least 45 options that are available to determine whether or not you could change the way in which the court lifetime appointment takes place. Consistent, arguably. With the Constitution. I have not been a fan of court packing because I think it just generates what will happen every whoever wins. It just keeps moving in a way that is inconsistent with what is going to be manageable. So you're still not a fan, but I'm not a fan of Don't say it depends on how this turns out. Howie wins but how it's handled how it's handled. There's a hostage crisis. You don't play by my rules on packing the court how it's handled. What does that mean? We know how it's going to be handled. There's a vote on the 22nd. She's going to get confirmed me how it's going to be handled. He? That is about the clearest indication he's given yet that he intends to pack the court. Yeah, he said last night he is open to packing the United States Supreme Court. And it depends on how it's handled. He's got the gun to our heads, he says. Go ahead. You want me to pack the court approve any Cockney? Barrett put her on the Supreme Court. I'll do it. That's the answer he gave in his own marble mouth, Joe Biden Way.

One nation, under gods? Indias divisive temple

"Off. Today India's Prime Minister Narendra. Modi. Traveled to the northeastern city of yoga which was hung with saffron flags and more than one hundred, thousand jobs. He came to lay the first stone of temple to Rahm incarnation of the Hindu God vishnu with believed was born in the city. This isn't the standard fare of a politician pressing the flesh for a photo op. It fulfils a promise Mr Moody made as a young politician to return to iota only when construction on a new temple began. Key. Speech at the dedication broadcast into the whole country he said the temple would be a symbol of unity that the weight of centuries and today. Agreement nation. Idea A symbol of unity. It is not the weight of centuries as Mr Moody and his BJP party see it goes back to the founding of a mosque on the site that was razed to the ground nearly thirty years ago. When we're talking about a Yoda today, we're talking about a very specific place just a couple of acres off the center of town where there was a great big mosque built in the sixteenth century and destroyed by Hindu activists in nineteen ninety-two. Alex. TREBEK's is the economists India correspondent based in Delhi the site of that former mosque is what's under contention? It's been the most controversial. Acre. In all of India. Ever since and the question is whether or not Hindus may bill the temple to Rahm right there and so how did things progressive since nineteen ninety two when the the mosque was destroyed how does that end up as a temple concentration today? It's been a terribly. Tortuous story through the courts after decades of legal stasis and very bizarre humiliation the supreme. Court. Last November, few months after Narendra Modi Wins, wapping reelection decides that the most crucial part of the ground ought to be given to the Hindus go ahead and build the temple that you've been clamoring for these decades. The court noted that the demolition of the mosque illegal in sort of compensation that no one appreciated very much allocated several acres of idle land outside the town to Muslims. In effect, the court just gave the Hindus white they had wanted and I mean the Hindu nationalists, the very groups that had clamored for the destruction of the mosque and eighty is a ninety S. And so what precisely is happening today then so today is the last of three days of the ceremony. Put. In which people most notably the prime minister are doing various prayers, offering ritual sacrifices, and so on. Around the site itself most spectacularly in the middle of all the Prime Minister Narendra. Modi ritually lifted into place the forty kilograms silver brick, which serves as temples foundation stone. Now it's consecrated and all its left is to keep on raising money and build the actual structure itself and what's the reaction been from Muslims about this this contentious building. You know in a way Muslims and everyone cares about civil rights and the secular foundation of India knows what to say no. One's happy about it. firebrand Muslim leader in Parliament Assadi. Noisy has criticized the prime minister going to a religious event and it's indeed striking that the prime minister should be there on the temple grounds with a bunch of priests and Politicos all mixed in as if they were a single class, it's shocking if you've been sleeping under a rock as India's changed in recent years and in fact, I was Struck that there have been no mass protests by Muslim groups either after the Supreme Court's decision last November nor today it doesn't mean they're happy about it. But at this point, the thing to protest, we talked a lot about Narendra Modi's brand of Hindu nationalism I. Guess This is kind of a pinnacle. Then for his aims I mean what? What does this mean for him and his party it is a pinnacle of sorts but I think it's more important to look at this as the end of a long first stage of Hindu nationalism. Movement. In India. We're looking at something more like a capstone than a foundation stone and at the same time this date August fifth was chosen for quite obvious reason. It's the first anniversary of this government very bold move to strip the state of jump in Kashmir India's only Muslim state a year ago of its status as a state and rule it directly from Delhi that was one of the main three goals that the Hindu nationalist movement had till. Now now, the third of those goals creating a uniform civil code that would bind. Muslim family law into line with Hindu and secular family law governs most of the rest of India is a less inspiring goal and it's been half accomplished. Already what Mr Moody is going to need in future is another another series of rallying cries like build the temple and where he's GonNa find them it's just not obvious at this point. So today's ceremony is is not a cause for for great triumph. This is this is not the the the end of this long road for the Jay he's hindu-nationalist goals and therefore mission accomplished. This is a triumph. Yes. By all rights Mr, Modi a good one to be taking the victory lap for his party is ideologically movement but that's also very backwards looking Mr Moody was elected with a terrific share of the parliamentary seats in two thousand fourteen in the first place. Because of these hindu-nationalist goals which attracted the devotion of his base, but because Indians were eager for change for economic development and good technocratic governance of a sort that he seemed specially poised to offer, there are various reforms for which he and his government can claim credit over the past six years. But there are many many more disappointments and in particular over the past two years say before the covid nineteen pandemic and then much much worse since it's begun, India's facing an economic crisis, it's every indicator is worse than they've been in a generation. So there's GonNa be a very strongly felt need. A week the opposition to come up with some way of rallying the country some nationalistic theme or series of themes to distract from the sort of impasse in India finds itself had economically this Hindu. Nationalist ideology offers no guidance towards what India's trade policy ought to be say or how environmental law to be fixed or scrapped. They've got a steady ideology, but it's not tacked onto any particular policies at this point i. think that the government we have in place right now strong government but in dark turbulent times is going to be almost desperate to find something to replace the impetus with. Altogether, though these changes that have already gone through, do you think it chips away at the basis of modern India's government? The the idea that religion shouldn't be a part of it. Yeah I think that India as we know it maybe as an idea we almost to retire Mahatma? Gandhi. Still on on every currency note but this is not Ghandi's India anymore you might almost say that the the anti-secularist of one it's now very ordinary to see symbols of state power mixed with. Symbols of sectarian dominance over the hindu-majority expressing itself often revanchist terms, which is why this template a Yoda really does. Alex thanks very much for joining US Jason. Thanks very much.

Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau.

So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar.

IRS Announces Taxpayers Can Make Checks Directly Payable To Any Corporation Or Billionaire They Want This Year

"The onion and onion public radio. This is the topical I'm Leslie Price. Mother fucker and we'll be right back. Hey, does anyone know who I talk to about getting my w two? If there's one thing everyone hates. It's doing taxes. However, the Internal Revenue Service recently announced a major change that they're hoping will make it easier this year for taxpayers to file OPR's financial correspondent Marcy Hammond joins me now with more on this marcy. What can you tell us well as lead the? IRS is rolling out a new system that will cut out the middleman so to speak starting this year. Year tax payers are instructed to just make their checks payable to any billionaire they want. It certainly does get rid of a step or two, but what led to the IRS making this change well irs funding has been cut by twenty five percent in the last ten years leaving the agency understaffed and under resourced. It takes a large workforce to get all that money into the pockets of the. The wealthy so from the tax agencies point of view. This change kills two birds with one stone. I spoke with Iras agent Marcia Krieg. Who explained how it works? Sending money to us have become irrelevant wasteful step. The IRS would cash taxpayers checks only for the funds to then be transferred to billionaires in the form of corporate subsidies, tax breaks and money grants for the corporations, but having tax payers. Payers right there. Check directly to Mike Bloomberg. Bill Gates or anyone in the coke family really streamlines that process so tax payers choose which of the nation's richest CEO's. They send their money to to be honest. It doesn't matter any of the five hundred and forty billionaires in the United States will do because your cash is eventually going to end up going to them anyway. However Payments Jeff Bezos. The fastest interesting, and how has it been working out for those who have already filed their taxes this year? Well I spoke to a few taxpayers, and so far they seem to think this new rule just makes sense. It was really easy. I paid my billionaire online turbo tax offered me some suggestions to choose from Howard Schultz Jack. Dorsey I chose the Elon Musk option and with just a click I deposited the money right into one of his. His offshore accounts I went down to H. and R. Block and ended up owing two hundred dollars to mark. Zuckerberg. I thought about fudging the numbers a bit, but facebook probably House on my financial that already in I. Don't WanNa on it. That brings up an interesting point. What if you owe a lot of money and taxes and the time to pay off or to get an extension? Well Billionaires Larry. Page Jamie, Dimon and the Walton family of. Of already set up their own tax, departments offer payment plans to tax payers, but just a warning. The interest rates are very high. It might be your only choice if you can't afford to pay. Just don't try to duck out on paying unlike the IRS, these tycoons wield a lot of power, and they will ruin you. Good advice but marcy I have to ask. This information has been out for a while now and today is tax day it. It seems like all. This information would have been more helpful to our listeners a few weeks even months

Alex Halberstadt: "Young Heroes of the Soviet Union: A Memoir and a Reckoning"

"In the course of my reading. I found a recently published book by a writer who frequently appears in The New Yorker New York magazine in many of the glossies. He's a wonderful writer. His name is Alex. how number stat? He was born in the Soviet Union when it was the Soviet Union and he's written. A cross between memoir and history called Young Heroes of the Soviet Union. Since I, am myself of Russian descent and I know some little about what it was like to grow. Walk in the Soviet Union. I found the book. Fascinating. When learned. In its first stone ten pages. Than Alex Humber stance grandfather was one of Stalin's personal bodyguards. That he in this book would travel to the Soviet Union. To meet this previously, UNMET! This grandfather once combed his hair and gave him a bath. How old were you? Then I was three months old Michael. and. You had barely spent time with your biological father because he stayed in the Soviet Union while you and your mother and your mother's parents came to America. Yes, that's right, Michael? How old were you then? I was nine years old. And where did you lands? How did it go? Well we left Moscow in the fall of nineteen, seventy nine, and after about six months Austria in Italy. We ended up in Queens County New York. In addition to all the other things. I have in common with the writer of the spoke Alex. Halberstadt I grew up in Queens to not the same part of Queens and you grew up in the projects. Yes, I did I grew up in the ravens, wood houses, which were part of New York City public housing. Your family was helped to America by an agency. Whose what would you call it? Specialties central issue was helping Russian Jews to leave Russia. Yes, that's correct. It was called highest the Hebrew International Aid Society, and it's still it's still going strong and actually doing a lot of activism right now, behalf of immigrants and refugees now. Wake my audience up. What is it like for? Alex Halberstadt to wake up and find himself in America having grown up near to Moscow. was. It was wonderful. I'M NOT GONNA lie, you know as as a nine and ten year old I thought America was amazing. It was every every kid's dream. You know unlimited consumer goods based. Professional wrestling on television now it was really it was. It was a wonderland. You grew up. In Russia what did the Russian novel mean to you control? It was a huge. Influence on my life does go ski in particular but Tolstoy, so tell me about your relation to the Great Russian literature. I think my relationship was a little ambivalent I tried to read. And I think, I have read most of tolstoy industy upscale entered. In, Russia which took. Eventually started to take a lot longer than it did in English and I loved reading those books. But it kind of you know. I found that also a little confusing because it kind of. I think in some ways overlapped with my experience of having grown up in Russia and kind of taught me about kind of the version of Russia that I was that I only got to know through books. I lived there in the nineteen seventies during the heyday of Soviet Union. You know surrounded by. Socialist realism and this was kind of a rush that I was only getting to know through books innocent I? Think one the things that fascinates me about your book young.

Your mother's side was Jewish. Yes, yes, so what happens then to the Russians so? The Russian soul. Well, you know it's funny. A part of writing this book was kind of trying to reckon a I think it's subtitled reckoning because. It was an attempt to reckon with what that country means. WHOA, how Howard was formed, and it's also a nation of readers, a nation of people who? Love jokes anecdotes, and you know they are indeed a very soulful. People, but also simultaneously it is a country that has an uninterrupted history of despotism of cruelty of. Secret Police of.

"We got a letter that we're going to be reading. Get the letter realism. US Oh God. I am so. I wouldn't want to know the person. Who wrote this slumming? Horror. Some outlet and we're going to be talking about it Oh my God it involves it's it's got sex. It's got religion. It is ever. Or violence. It's got all kinds of the it's. It's guys magic. It's basically curses. A movie it would be are rated and Christians is A. It's a hell of a thing is a hell of a thing will be discussing that later on in the shield coming up later all right? I want to start with This article that I more about addressing the existence of this article right. That it brings up from the desert news. A local MARMON paper. Yeah the LDS Church owns a daily newspaper here in Salt Lake, city. And they There's their slant is obviously. Yeah. You guessed it. Pro Pro family pro faith. Mormons Pro Mormons. And, so they have I guess. Maybe this was an op Ed. Okay, but it's also just. Par for the course for the desert news sure The headline says as protests erupt. Christians ask what would Jesus do. She's still. Well again. I mean. If if he's your only moral touchdown. Then, yes, please ask what he would do. Right problem is everybody has a different answer right right? Yeah, exactly. You know in the article they actually. Reach out to Bishop. Marion Buddy the. She leads the fiscal. Episcopal Diocese of Salt Lake of Washington DC I'm GonNa tell her a little later on. Yeah, exactly so I won't ruin your story by talking about it too much, but anyway She was definitely very much in the news this last week. and they have a quote from her, and she says some people are called to be on the streets, and some people aren't. Some people are called to offer a supportive presence in one form or another, while others are just called to pray right as this is in reference to you know. Should you be out there protesting as well? Should you be out there? You know how? How. Are you being an advocate for? The African American, and generally the you know. Racial minority groups in this country right and you know like it's not like. The topic isn't an important one as far as like. Prodding. People religious people. Presumably conservative Christians right, who wouldn't necessarily be on the side of a lot of these protesters and asking them hard questions about. Where where they should be and what they should be supporting. I applaud that the article exists okay. I'm tired of this. What would Jesus still? We need guy arrest right like. seriously. Cancer because because look. There's there's one Jesus like you know someone in black lives. Matter might point out that Jesus. When he saw the money. Changers in the temple through Goddamn hissy fit turned over their tables and started smacking him started beaten our asses, so link hello. That's what Jesus might have done, and then somebody else might have said well Jesus would say that he was without sin cast the first stone. Right. So so Jesus against throwing stones apparently so. Very obviously. Can't you can't riot or whatever and. We can support all the positions fantastic. How is that useful to me right? Right, and it's just like again though there's this question of I, it's it just seems like a very morally bankrupt question to be asked first place because it just says that. A. Lake. You the person being asked this. You're supposed to just sort no right. But, but also it's that. You're having to to stop and think about this guy who two thousand years ago. Who if he? If. He lived But anybody who I don't care who they were right. Who lived two thousand years ago? They have no. Perspective. On our current situations would how big in this world they have literally. There from a completely. The time like like I'm sorry like like it's not like. Obviously. The human condition is is Doesn't change that. Right overturning like we're still dealing with a lot of. We have similar emotional lives, probably right ways and and we have the same wants and needs in those those ways right. We're still human beings. and so it's not like. Throw away any sort of. Ancient wisdom right but I. don't care what Jesus would do right? I literally fucking down I. Don't yeah, I don't care. How about what would you do and you should probably sort that out. If you were a good person, what would you do? That's the question. I think that's a really good question. If if you happened to be a decent human being if you could imagine a world in which you weren't the shithead that you are. What would you do? What do you think you'd do? That's the question. The question is. Yeah, what would you? Not Doing. Not should head version of you do. What of the letters on that? How do you get that on a bracelet? And as H. D

Google Shows off Its Work on Its Contact Tracing API

"Talked about this a couple of weeks ago. And there's been a lot of discussion around how Google is going to help in the Kobe. Nineteen kind of mess. The world is in by utilizing technology to help Contact tracing and there's a lot of speculation around if it would be something that voluntary or Out of House GonNa work While Google starting to show its work on on this on the contact tracing concept on android. Initially it's GonNa be leveraging play services which will be updated in the background automatically The first phase involves third party apps from public health agencies. That tap into androids newly integrated control. Said there's GonNa be system controls within the settings APP called quote Unquote Kobe. Nineteen exposure notifications. And you'll get the ability to turn it off and links the health the health agency APP on the device It lists the number of exposure checks that have taken place in the past fourteen days. There's an option to delete random. Id's and turn off exposure of Haitians. The future does not use device location which is fascinating. In fact APPS are prohibited from asking for location access however location settings do need to be on in order to detect nearby Bluetooth devices. Google's also released a sample APP release sample APP code to help to help. Health organizations develop their own APPs quickly. So what do we do? We think that this is going to be enough to help. Stem the the. You know the to have a positive impact on keeping people from being exposed or is this going to be. Is Google kind of saying? Hey we're doing everything. Han here Ohio. Hello exertions use it in your own apps and then just kind of washing their hands of it. I think I like what I see. I think I think they're doing it responsibly. In my opinion having it be a blue to sort of connection but per actively prohibiting the the health organization APP that is actually facilitating. You know this this sort of detection prohibiting them from having location access I think it was a long way or at least for a lot of people I think it will in Hopefully calming them down as far as like. Oh but this is tracking. A lot of people aren't going to really understand and know the difference in frankly. A lot of people also aren't GonNa care at all. They're just going to say anything. That's going to protect me from from catching this virus I'm all in whatever here. Take Take my take my permission as far as that's concerned But I I I trust Google in the sense and I think what they're showing with with this information and Definitely what we'll see in the coming weeks as the APPS start to be released and everything I think they're showing some pretty good faith As far as their intentions here which are to help out and they've already also said that this isn't going to last and after you know they're going to remove this after the the viruses thread is passed so I don't know I feel comfortable enough to use it. I'll definitely be checking it out but I also on an android show so maybe it makes me a used case than random people but do you think. Do you think it goes. I think that will work. Does it go far enough for or are they putting those limitations in that Alicia and will those limitations? Limit the effectiveness of it. Oh I don't know I think I mean honestly I think that remains to be seen right like Bluetooth as technology is a pretty near field can technology. If it was too wide then it would almost be unused Like not very useful in and of itself. Let's say if it was location data but somewhere in the range of two hundred fifty feet around you like it would be telling people you cross pass with somebody who had the virus way more that way when in essence. Maybe they didn't need to know. Maybe there was a very low chance that that person actually crossed direct paths. And then you know at the same time this person sneezing or whatever the situation would be that the transmission would happen so you don't WanNa make it too wide either and I think Bluetooth being such a near Field. Kind of communication method makes that better and also strips out the location tracking aspect so it kind of kills two birds one stone. Maybe that was a bad reference Term to use I know that you wrote about this a couple of weeks ago when this was kind of bubbling up. And you ask them questions in your article as far as what we have yet to find out about this. I feel like this kind of answers at least a little bit of what you were writing about. What do you think a little bit? I still have a lot of questions. I think it's a wonderful idea. I'm really glad Google and apple are working together and doing like you. I don't have any qualms or think anybody should realistically have any reservations based on everything. We're hearing it seems like they're approaching it thoughtfully responsibly. And making every taking every precaution possible to assure people at the same time well on a technical with the Bluetooth. I still wonder effectiveness wise. How is this? I mean? It really can't differentiate between say you passing somebody on the street. Who who's phone eventually may get flagged as having it very quickly. Both wearing masks no contact. Maybe like five feet away and somebody's standing over your shoulder without a mask and coughing for thirty seconds is there's no way it can really tell the difference so in that way it's hard to see maybe doing a little bit of either false positive false worry or or false security something you know just kind of giving you the wrong message but my bigger question is just how many people especially in the US are GonNa opt into this despite everything all the assurances everything. Google can say everything that can show about how it's working. It's just hard to imagine. Any massive number of Americans actively agreeing and going out of their way to opt into it both in in principle because they're going to have concerns and just out of kind of inertia and laziness and you know you have to do it and download the APP so without a lot of people signing up and actively participating assistant like. This can't work so I think that's my biggest question is. Is there any chance and of people especially in the US? We're going to do it for it to work with it being so optional so opt in so many steps. You have to take to make it happen. I guess we'll find out. Is there an on boarding process for this? That I'm just not seeing remain remains to be seen because the APPS themselves haven't been released yet so we don't know basically what Google and apple have done is they've said here's our baking this into the system that the API that allows for this. Here's some sample code so that those health organizations that are going to create the APPS that tap into our API so they have a general idea of what they can create and hopefully the sample code makes it easier for them. If they want to use it they don't it's up to them see Jr. I think you're right. I think the big question will be. How much awareness is around? You know people having the ability to install this APP really know what it's all about. There's got to be some sort of messaging campaign to motivate people to do this and it remains to be seen how effective that's going to be once we actually have. Apps to turn to so We will keep you posted. I'll be eager to watch where that goes from

Humans in the Loop and Outside of the Classroom

"You are listening to talk to you machines. I'm Katherine Gorman and Lawrence and our guest this week on talking machines has been with us before and I'm very glad to welcome him back Michael Whitman. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with us. It is a great pleasure. I enjoyed my previous outing. And after that point you and I actually became close. And we've been working together and so I feel very honored to be asked back because you know now what you're getting and I guess that means you think it's okay yes it is yes absolutely full disclosure to what we have. Today is a cabal of communications chairs so a meal and I were communications chairs for Europe's for awhile and Michael and I work medications shares last year. Probably helping out again this year. So yes we can talk about all of those finer points of how how we talk about talking about talking about scientific communication this week still machines. Europe's communication chose. This is actually just one of those Europe's meetings where we're going to talk about for next year. How the press conference will be is that. This is an comedic. That's I like it when you're doing something for two reasons at once. Two birds with one stone. We can get the communication so for this year's Europe's the same time it's perfect. It's perfect I love it so Michael. I know we've had you on but it's been quite a while and I think a lot has changed. Give us an update as to where you've been in sort of a little bit of run through of how you got where you are. You are at Brown now and you're the CO head of the Center for human focused. Robotics is that right. It's called the humanities centered robotics initiative at Brown and Yeah it's a. It's an organization that we tried to put together Shortly after I got to Brown with the goal of thinking about robots and in particular trying to create robots that work with people for the benefit of people and so it's not necessarily machine learning thing but of course everything now is a machine learning thing so it pretty naturally segues into that and before you were at Brown you were at rutgers. Tell us a little bit about how you how you got to where you are and what you've been doing now besides being in full commercials and trying to help meal and everybody else in the oric come talk about science and things like that so I had a had a great time records. I had a terrific group there. We focused quite a bit on reinforcement learning and in particular issues in efficient exploration in reinforcement learning so trying to systems. That could not only over time. Learn to get better and better but could get better and better fast right so with with a minimum amount of of data minimum amount of experience. That kind of wrapped up. When I transitioned to Brown and my focus. Since I've been at Brown a lot of my papers have been about human in the loop reinforcement learning so basically try and and and this comes at least in part because of the humanities centered robotics initiative the idea of what we want our system's not just to learn to get better at things quickly but also in response to what people want them to do and so one way of telling machines. What you want them to do is by writing a reward function. That's the machine the reinforcement learning way. But I think normal people don't sit around thinking about how to rate reward functions. It's easier to use the kinds of tricks that people use when they're training animals for example like good robot. Oh bad robot. No no no no no bad robot. So how can you use that kind of feedback? Sort of positive and negative evaluative feedback that reward function would give but have it come from an actual person kind of live sit. Does that mean invest reinforcement? Learning will as you have to infer. What the human is implying. The reward function is or other approaches to that right so I would say they're related but in fact the the main difference in the way that the inverse reinforcement learning is typically studied is as the inverse of the reinforcement learning problem so the the reinforcement. Learning problem says here is a reward function. Use that to generate behavior the inverse reinforcement. Learning problem is here's behavior. What's the reward function that would have generated that behavior if you were thinking about reinforcement learning so the input? Irl inverse reinforcement. Learning is behavior is examples of. Here's I was in the situation. And here's if you're in the situation to here's this sort of thing you should do and inverse reinforcement learning agent in first from that. Oh okay if that's the thing I should have done then probably what's going on is we're trying to minimize time on the beach and maximize the time you know in front of ice cream or whatever whatever kind of fits with the behavior that's observed the human in the loop reinforcement learning is humans giving rewards signals giving feedback saying good job bad job. Now you could from that in for a reward function and actually it's not a terrible idea but it's not the dominant one in the literature. The the the the main thing that people do is try to use those rewards as if they were rewards and then some version of a reinforcement learning algorithm to turn those rewards into Behavior Hall K. So this related approaches would you. Would you classify that as almost equivalent to say model free and model based I know the normally that's around the world but where the model is now generating y'all value function or misunderstood? Well so one of the first papers to work on this problem of human in the loop enforcement learning was a system out of University of Texas Peter Stone and Brad Knox and what they did is actually kind of a model based approach. They said let's from watching the human give rewards. Let's actually estimate the reward function and then plan using that reward function so they actually directly estimate the reward function from the human inputs. And so in that case it is sort of model based but it's still in verse reinforcement. Learning yeah definitely not because you know as a computer scientist. I'd see things very much from the perspective of what are the inputs. What are the outputs? So inverse reinforcement learning inputs are behavior in human in the loop reinforcement learning. The inputs are positive and negative signals. So Richard said so in some sense good and bad is whereas versus with whole behavior profile is would be the difference in the inverse reinforcement learning. And you get a lot of information because you're you're getting to see what the right action was right and just like that. It's almost more of a supervised learning problem in a sense right because you are seeing. Here's what the right answer is. Whereas in evaluative feedback systems like reinforcement learning systems. You're just told. Hey that thing you just did. That's a six and like six that good like well. It's less good than seven but it's more good than five right. So you're you're missing a tremendous amount of of richness of the information In the feedbacks so why humanity rather than human sentence. Yeah so. That was a long debate. We had when we were trying to get the thing off the ground so the idea was that human centered is already a thing and it typically means you know trying to design a system so that it interacts really well with the person that it's connected to and that's obviously a really important thing but we wanted to go beyond that to saying not only that not only do we want to act sort of nicely with respect to the person directly interacting with but we want the the repercussions of the system as a whole to benefit society as a whole so for example. You know. We're going to be skeptical of a system where yes person and a robot working together to put ten thousand people out of work right like. That's not the kind of thing that we would take to be our goal in the in the center.

Maj. John Rain Waters: F16 Deployed & Demo Pilot, USAF Instructor, and 777 Pilot

"Give us a little bit of background just like a quick elevator. Pitch on John. What what have you been known for? What are you doing now? Yeah so I started flying in high school. Got The bug hooked and I wanted to go sir. By countries so best of both worlds is able to go fly in the Air Force has been twelve years flying air force mix from being a t six instructor pilot flying that sixteen and eventually the being. F16 DEMO pilot edges recently transitioned into airlines flying. A triple seven right now. Right on very cool. So let's start at the beginning then so you started flying in highschool tells about where you got the bug and how that love for aviation started. I Group A community. That was just full of aviation a lot of Delta pilots. Round where I live in all our ex air force next navy guys and my neighbor actually took me flying in a piper cub but a day it was like seventy degrees as absolutely beautiful door open when cruising around. I think that was the first Hook I had put in me for aviation. My Dad was a big influence. He wasn't a pilot but he saw it as a great career. Opportunity to kind of push me in that direction and so I was fortunate to have someone who wanted to teach of a friend of mine. Fly His son. He wants you to send out a fly but he wanted to teach them to fly with someone so I was fortunate to be able to be that other person and me and my friend were taught how to fly. My I fly was on September tenth. Two thousand one. So the next day I was is a big moment for so many across the world little in America so when September eleventh happened that really solidified my desire to WanNa go serve and if I go serve while flying two birds with one stone and was fortunate. That's where I put all my effort in high school was to get an ROTC scholarship. Go in and get a pilot slot and then flying air force now. That's amazing I think for me. No connection to nine eleven. I think I took my first flight less than a year after that. So yeah September Eleventh. Two thousand two so wild and crazy now coming up with me. It's almost two decades ago right so there's so many people that you know in op. See Our age no it lifted everyone holderness no it and lived it but you know being the demo pilot going out and talking to kids. Now there's just we now have the first generation of Americans serving in the military who were born after September eleventh. Yeah so is just. It's such a such a big event moment in history for so many people and it's crazy to hear the different stories and then you go dig up my logbook and take a picture of an shared or something because it is kind of wild. I remember another friend of mine that has a similar store to you is working the financial sector nine eleven happened and then he became. He became an air force pilot as well. He ended up in the rapture. But you know he. He felt the call as well so Can you walk us through? What the process for you as like say in high school to get to that point where you're qualifying to be a fighter pilot. I don't know if that's like an acceptable her. But you're obviously shooting for something there. So what's that process like to actually get in a position to be able to do that so for me? I think most people the average is a very long process. They're opposites exceptions to someone who monitoring have their degree in apply saucer training school which is a shorter condensed program and they go off and become a pilot but on average most people commission become officers in the Air Force which you had to offer to be a pilot most people commission through the Air Force Academy which is a four year college military school out in Colorado Springs or through ROTC which is at most universities across the nation. So I did ROTC Georgia Tech. But you start queuing yourself up in high school because you have to be competitive in order to get into. Rotc or get into Air Force Academy so mine started really like eighth ninth grade looking to see whether requirements were in order to get a ROTC scholarship or get into the Air Force Academy which is good. Gpa's good sat be well rounded so be involved in sports or working but they also want to see in those processes of work or your club or sports that over the course of three or four years you go from. Yeah the guy who just joined the group to being the club president or being the team captain. Because they're looking for leadership ability so it really cute up early on and it was a long path just to get ROTC and get into college and then once you get into ROTC or college Air Force Academy. The process kind of starts all over again. Because you're competing with everyone who's shown up at the end of school your junior year. That's really when most people find out what they're going to do in the Air Force. Three years to develop as a leader develop as an officer. Show that you had that potential to serve at a higher level and function at a higher level and then you apply for pilot slot or navigator slaughter intelligence officer. Whatever might be but you've been racked and stacked against your peers. There's a number one. There's a number two. There's a number ten and they all comes down to the needs of the air force so if we need ten pilots great news for that group of ten people but if there's only need to pilots than the top two people get that that's a very broad brush gail but in the end it's a really long process typically in order to get to that point and it's a big investment to write without being guaranteed that you're actually. GonNa get that slot you're putting in years and years of work before you ever know that you're GonNa get pilot

Sciences leading role in the restoration of Notre Dame, and the surprising biology behind how our body develops its tough skin

"Up. This week I talked with freelance science writer Christa. La- stay Lazar about the role of scientists at the Notre Dame cathedral both in the restoration of the structure and for the investigation of its past. Then we have the researcher. Felipe make arose. He's GonNa talk about how our skin forms a tough area against the outside world and how this barriers formation depends on phase separation a very hot area of cell biology first up today. We have freelance science writer. Crystallised J. LO Sarah. She wrote a featured this week on the scientists leading. Notre Dame's restoration after the April twenty nineteen fire and their use of the fire to probe the mysteries of this Cathedral. Hi Krista for Sarah Okay. The way you describe the scientific works it's going on at the Cathedral after the fire. It can almost be broken down into these categories by material stone glass led and would each has experts. It has its own challenges in its own mysteries all the teams that are working together on the restoration on these different categories of materials are working together in the same organization. Can you tell us a little bit more about this group? They're all working out at the same laboratory. Which is part of the Ministry of Culture? A description of it in the story was pretty amazing. Oh Yeah it's it's really phenomenal. It's the front. They have a wing of a seventeenth century castle. You had these Austira Iron Gates that lead up to it and you just have no idea of the treasures that are hidden in that area. Let's take this material by material first stone obviously Notre Dame is made of Stone Wood and some other pieces and I was really surprised by how dangerous getting the stone out of the building after the fire was the researchers actually had to use robots to get the stones out they did. You've got this vault. That said teeter on collapse because they have no idea how much forces have changed. They've absorbed water but they've also been affected by heat. So there are some stones that have suffered some heat-damaged crumble. At the same time there are also some stones that are just dangling from the ceiling and they now they might just drop at any moment. Everything is really delicately balanced. And you've got a thirty meter drop. That's a hundred foot drop coming down. So many stones are actually taken back to this French chateau from his French castle. A lot of them ended up store outside the Cathedral waiting to be put back in it but they do take some back to the French castle right. Most of them are stored in these tents that are all in front of the cathedral and sorting them. It's just hit and miss about of work of of sorting these. Because they're not going to lose anything anything that's about more than five centimeters long is going to be put back into the Cathedral. The wants to take back to study what they're looking for is to see different signs of heat damage so that can be seen through for example oxidation which contains the color of the stones. But that's only guy but it's still a pretty good guide. According to helmet heated got. You can go from red to black and then kind of surprisingly than to white and when it gets to white then you know that it's really bad because it's just powder they also are doing some testing on the water. Absorption it's these stones absorbed quite a bit of water. They can gain up to thirty percent of their weight. The water came from trying to put the fire out yes. The water came from the firefighters. Hosing down the federal. And it's taking up very very long time for them to dry sue. The fire was April the fifteenth and as of today. It's still drawing. They're still losing weight to water Evaporation yes they're still losing weight. Oh that's amazing. So what can they do with this information about how the stones change color? How was it helpful to know that this color change corresponds to how much heating went on with the stones? What they really need to know is the detail of which stones are likely to be damaged enough to need to be changed. Because there's some that may may not have fallen but they may have been so damaged that they're not going to be able to hold up the structure correctly anymore and at this delicate balance of forces going to be upset they also need to know how long it's GonNa take everything to dry because there's no point in testing for example the mortar between the stones until everything's finished drying because the border is continued to be affected by the changing forces. Right another dangerous aspect of this work is led. Notre Dame had a lot of lead tons of lead in the roof and spire and it was melted by the fire was also thrown out into Aerosol particles a yellow cloud escaped and it coated everything inside the building and possibly some of the nearby neighborhoods. What do we know about the contamination and the surrounding city? We actually don't know that much about the lead contamination. In the city. There was a lot of fear at the beginning. Parisians were very worried and rightfully so because lead toxicity can be bad for children and there are a lot of children living in Paris but the scientists here at this laboratory have found out that the vast majority of that roof did not go up in to smoke or cloud. It melted the melting point. Nos three hundred degrees Celsius. The evaporation point is one thousand seven hundred degrees Celsius. We didn't get anywhere near that. After about six hundred degrees Celsius than it created these little micro nozzles that went up into the air. An Aerosol so really a small portion of the roof did go up quite a bit of it actually fell down into the cathedral itself some did go outside and it floated away. You can see it in the videos of this Yellow cloud that would along the Seine but the scientists think that probably much of it did not drop down onto the ground her into the Sun River but just kept going following the son of further downstream so it may not have ended up in Paris at all. We don't know where it is yet but the researchers are consort right. They're going to be testing different areas of the city trying to see if there's a signature of the Notre Dame leads. They're able been able to test the lead from the roof to be able to get to the isotopes. This has allowed them to have an isotopic signature so when they find lead and there's lead Oliver Paris. You can't just a sample say. Oh that Kim furniture dom you don't know but because of the isotopic signature then you can. So they're trying to test that find out if the lead ended up in those areas. What about the lead levels inside the CDL? Are they a big concern for the researchers working there now? Because of the high amounts of lead in the cathedral there is a great concern with the work agencies so they are requiring very very strict procedures on lead safety first of all access is extremely limited just the bare minimum people that are allowed to get in the only access in is to go through a shower. Cabin may have to take off all their clothes. They have to wear these paper clothing paper. Underrun paper socks. You're allowed to stay for a maximum two and a half hours in the whole time there. You have wear these masks. That are really heavy and uncomfortable and they have breathing assistance. And it's not just the people it's also any equipment they bring in anything they bring in has to be either destroyed or washed thoroughly on the way out. 'cause as they leave the Cathedral Matra two and a half hours. They take all of their clothing off and they go through the shower and anything they brought with them also has to go through the shower and wash with all this protective gear all this rigorous cleanliness routine. They have to go through. It shouldn't be surprising that most of the work that they're doing right now is to get this led out of there. The lead is not being rude yet because the initial step is finding how to get the lead off without destroying this eight hundred fifty year old monument and all of its Precious art inside and this is an extremely expensive project to begin with and they're trying to be cost efficient as possible. So cost is really an issue. They can't just go in with The most expensive kind of equipment either and they need something that is can be explained to the people that are going to be doing it because the people who are cleaning are not going to be the scientists is going to be a company. That's going to be brought in and they're gonNA be technicians. That are going to come

Whispering Sweet Nothings? (Zohar I:49a-b)

"I'm Sarah Rosner Lawrence and I'm here as usual with Arthur Marcus Clinical Director of knees women's health high. I loved these many tax. I feel like I learned so much. And I'm also here with our by Windsor. Russia Stephen President of Holiday Torah High. I love doing these men text episodes. Okay so what do you you have for us today. Rylander well few episodes ago. We did a mini text episodes from Zohar. On Kissing. And Love. That episodes I know about Chev- totally loved that And it's really great because the Zohar because as I've mentioned before Has Sex is such a central part of its understanding of God In the life of the Kaaba List in terms of effecting the different aspects of God we have we have more discussions about sex Than in many other sources So this is another text from Sohar. The exact source is Volume one page forty. Nine Eight A. B. and it's on diverse break sheet from via L. Haddam. I'm that God created eve the woman and brought her to man so here it is. I'll just read a few words in the Aramaic. And then I'll switch over to the English. The English is from the translation. flation of Daniel Matt. So they ha ho Lee from here we learn divine above EMA DECARLA that the mother and the father of the bride a require the Abu Take the time to bring the bride into the domain of the room. So far that sort of what we know the parents give the girl over. Give give the their daughter over to the groom. I'm GonNa Switch just the English as it is said. I've given my daughter to this man from this point on her husband comes to her for the House is hers as it is written. He came into her so that is actually a verse about interquest by Vo Allow. What's being read here as he comes into her domain? It's her home. He came into Rachel also again verse about Intercourse I. He brought her to the man. God brought to the man for up to this point. The father and mother should act by giving your daughter over afterward. He should come to her for the entire houses hers and he must obtain her permission. So this talking about sex is talking about you know the home. Is the women's domain A little bit of both. It sounds possibly what what consent consent. So we're going to get there. We have aroused just our awareness. Interesting word arouse but okay. We have aroused or awareness of this as written. This is now by Jakko. He approached the place and stayed there for the night. First first obtaining permission from here we learn that one who joins his wife shouldn't treat her and sweet in her with words or otherwise not spend the night with her so that the does careers their desire be as one with no coercion. Now just skip a paragraph and now we're GONNA continue with Jakko for a minute before we circle back to Adam and eve. We've he took one of the stones of the place and put it under his head here. We learn that if a king has golden beds and precious spreads in which to spend the night and his consort his wife prepares him a better rain with stones. Right because that was the bed of Jacob the stones he should leave his own and sleep in the one she prepares and is as it is written then he lay down in that place now back to Adam come and see what is written here. The man said this one at last shall be called woman behold the fragrance fragrance of words to draw love with her draw her towards his desire arouse passion together like he's praising her and this is you know look how beautiful those words are it to get her in the mood. See how sweet how full of love own of my bones flesh a flesh. Showing their one inseparable now he begins praising inker this one shall be called woman this one is unparalleled. Glory of the House all women compared to her like eight compared to humans. Certainly this this 'cause this was the only real woman this one shall be called woman. Perfection of all this one and no others at is as it is written many daughters have done virtuously precisely but you surpass them all some GonNa Pause here the last paragraph if we get a chance goes onto a different point but there's a lot to be said about this all open the floor. I don't like Oh deep sigh out. It feel I'm trying to separate out my like twenty per century injury sensibility. Hear about lake over. flowery doesn't sound real I don't know how you feel about to Sarah and I don't know I I mean like I'm kind of. I'm struggling to get to the to the lake. punchline point of this text like so far it feels a little a bit like flowery to me kind of similar to two bunch of his impression but what I'm understanding from this end. Correct me if I'm wrong. Is that basically. There is a dynamic where the the woman's parents bring her to the man's domain initially. But then after that it's sort of the man's responsibility to a kind of appease her and treat sex with her and being with her as her domain right and something that he sort of has to approach her heroic to choose the one in charge. You don't feel like it feels like he's sort of Connie her into it. That's that's sort of where I'm getting my back a little bit. I I think in a society in which men could easily coerce their wives rape right or use pressure to have them to agree to saks. Even though they really weren't into admit you know a lighter form of rape or coercion. You know but here it's like completely reversing that and saying the woman is in charge. It's her home. You know. I think it sort of doing like the round you know. She's the balanced bias. She's the one in charge of she's the one in charge of the domestic sphere and also the merging of that with to come into her. You know if you you want to have sex with her. She's the one in charge of her body and like you need her permission and she wants to sleep on the floor. Usually on the floor right soon. I love that piece. The one where you'd have the golden bed and then it gets usually one stones so that actually is quite lovely and not having the same reaction that Oh my God is all talking talking about her Making her happy and I'm trying to figure out. Is it last section. Where he's giving this flowery? Praise your the most wonderful women have no at no other woman has anything like you. I mean it saying look. Those words might not work for you right that like their power. Look I I know that there are a lot of women who dirt during before during sex you know WanNa feel desired WanNa feel ladder. Sure there's nothing on my woman on as much as feeling like she is desired right that again and again the most beautiful woman ever so this way way. It's the express. That is possible that I'm that I'm reacting to that. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's so it's it's kind of interesting because I feel like what I'm reacting to negativity is not exactly the same thing but is like this dislike. Egalitarian sensibility that contra my like twenty-first-century brain gene of like. Why should be his job to only approach her and why like dislike one directional aw energy that's bothering me too but I think that sort of becomes like well the option to that is not both of them entreating the other the option to that is enforcing right right right completely? Changed the Pierre de and say that he helped picks initiatives. We're still going to allow for that. But it's still she's in charge. You know you have to ask her permission. You have to get her in the mood. But you're right. It's speaking to them right right. So it's like it's like don't rape her get her permission in and entreat her and flatter and all these things whereas I wish it was like you approach sometimes and she approaches you. I WanNa say it's much more than don't rape her so that may be as y you know they're both equally into it. It's an equal merging of the cells to me. I right now so that is really I think thing. That's a really important point because I think what's bothering me and you're reading it differently is that it feels like look. I WANNA have sex and so I want to get you to agree to have sex and that feels different to me that I want us to see if I get you to a place where you want to have sex too and that feels very different to me and that is how you're reading it you're probably sadly right it. The text itself has maybe we should be the last pair perfect okay. Tell me if this helps hurts. Perfect therefore let him a man leaves his father and mother and cleaves to his wife and they become one flesh all to draw her into love to clear to her once he had aroused her with all these words. It's what is written. Now the serpent was slide than any creature of the field the evil impulse now. This is a tricky tax arouse to seize her binding her with bodily desire fire rousing in her other things in which evil impulse delights until eventually what is written the woman saw. The tree was good for eating delight to the eye and took of its shoot in eight receiving leaving it willingly. He gave to her husband beside her for now. She aroused desirous Lee towards him offering passionate. Love this shows human beings how the act corresponds above so this is a tricky text because it has the serpent evil desire but the end of it sounds like the fact that he had these very physical co lusts was actually a positive thing for the next paragraph in the Zohar which I did not do actually says wait a minute. If this bloke response to above how do you think that there's such a thing and as the evil desire above and basically says sort of is like the divine has the right and the left side and anyway. It's you know getting all all right. Les Is maybe a bad thing. But maybe it's a good jockey I think that's exactly is fastened

"No no longer exists. one two nine eight one seven two hundred so how about this badger. a badger back when the farmer's market was just the market people called badgers would buy produce from the farmer bring it to the market and sell it to the customer. well people still sell goods in open air markets all over the world the term badger was more popular in Britain. it was still in use in America up until around the civil war. linguists the think the phrase badger someone came from their relentless salesmanship either that or the occupation derives from Bangor. as someone who carries someone who carries a bag. a badger. that's interesting. well there's a leech collector. leach collector. back when medicine was in its. let's just bleed the patient phase people called leisure leach collectors would call leeches from the ground with animal legs and sell them to doctors. and apparently they sold some to Willem Dafoe for speed to. this practice was common in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in both Britain and America bloodletting via leeches was thought to release the patient of bad humors that made them sick. to attract leeches from swampy water leach collectors would lead old horses into the water and then pick them off pick off the fresh little fresh leeches that would fix themselves under their skin. if they didn't have any horses they would simply use their own legs oh my god. ridiculous. your horses. but then they would use their only if they didn't have arses. leach collect that sounds like a fantastic job I wonder I wonder if there's any vacation. we give the vacation time when you're a leech collector. what about insurance you're gonna have to need health insurance if you're a leech collector you're gonna be in the hospital every other week. with leeches to attach to your face. thanks that is insane that's that's insane. and sell them to doctors yeah yes Steve Martin from Saturday Night Live. the character you played Saturday let. it was all it was all about bloodletting. only Sears Robert on WGN I Robert. do you remember the knife sharpener yeah the guy would come down the street ring a bell and you would would you want being being being down the middle of the morning and like five in the morning and you did not mention it today you run down the street with a bunch of large knives in your hand yeah well the thing is it's like I remember that I remember that they are you know what there's I think there is still a few people who do that Robert I if I'm not mistaken there is still at least one guy in the Chicago land area in one of the suburbs there is still a knife sharpener like he still has the car he still rings the bell and people run outside with their knives in this guy sharpens. well my my little parks and I know she still goes once in awhile you can hear me no part. which which that stone that he uses yeah it was nice to get really nicely sure all they do no no no that's that's absolutely true it's absolutely true they do but yeah that was a real thing some guy walking through your neighborhood ringing a bell you run outside with your knife and he sharpens it for you that's. yeah. never take your body. yeah that's a real thing time I know you probably have you ever heard of the guy who walks through the neighborhood ringing the bell people weren't run outside with their knives no nice sharpener though the the closest thing I had to that was the high school should students who got shanghaied into selling cocoa knives no no no no no this guy to you or your personal knives like when you hear the bell you like all the nice guy Intergraph map you grab your favorite night. and you run outside with it give it to knife ma'am he sharpens it sharpens it beautifully and you pay a. and this is a common a common job a common practice well it sounds like it's time to bring that back well we were just saying I guess you guys a couple look I think there are a couple of guys you still do that because some people you know. really believe that that's the best way to sharpen a knife like these guys with their stones of the bed and got like a wet stone yeah who really know how to sharpen knives like Rambo I mean it's it's. by the way that new Rambo movie looks ridiculous I know it is a great no come on give me yeah I guess I guess is the only one I don't like the only one I don't like is the third one is the one in in Afghanistan is that the one where it's dedicated to the mujahideen yes yeah a little that they need I don't like that one I like the last one which was insane where he killed like eight thousand people as in Burma in the most bloody it was the most bloody of any other analog no doubt and I like that one so I guess I should be looking for this one considering I I think Rambo first blood part two is pretty awesome he's gonna take on the cartel the scale and first blood is my favorite Stallone movie I mean but the thing about like I said this before first put is like a legitimately good movie yeah the other Rambo movies are ridiculous but fun and good yeah but like first blood is good like a really really good movie. but yes the rainbow he can sharpen knives the maybe he if he needs a job after whatever he does in this movie. you start ringing bells outside you wake outs you wake up you walk outside with your favorite nice and Stallone's down there good job yeah that's right. there is a ruse shot or he can just become a leech collector. just dip in the different quite a range Rambo yeah okay so is up his own arm. man man ramble going around selling leeches I would you know what I wouldn't be surprised. if in that first Rambo movie he didn't have a few leeches stuck to the wood whether any leaks scenes in the first in the first first but I feel like the relief scenes in the sequels. they put leeches on him when he was like attached to the they put Lee the. that's right that's right I knew there were leeches involved in the ramble move. two jobs now the ramble could have you could be a leech collector and I've sharpener. he's got those skills he's a leech collecting knife sharp. that's exactly right two birds with one stone man what a resume. yeah. so if anybody knows of any knife sharpeners that you guys in your suburb.

"Repetition effects that seems to be playing a role here let's take a look at another study how about one thousand nine hundred eighty two marian schwartz repetition and raided truth value of statements from the american journal of psychology so schwartz here conducted two experiments on what psychologists were by this time calling the truth effect what we're calling the illusory truth effect so experiment one you get a group of subjects and they rate claims on a seven point truth value scale just like in the first study the star wars study the seventy seven study and a different group of subjects rated the same statements on a seven point scale of how familiar they were with the statements before the experiments started how familiar are you with this repetition increased both ratings so both pre experimental familiarity as well as the perceive truth value they both went up when people saw them more than once that's not surprising again the replication and then also the fact that you have seen something before we'll tend to make you more familiar with it then you've got another experiment here second one replicated the illusory truth effect again found that it didn't matter whether you mixed up repeated statements that people had seen before with new statements or only showed them repeated statements either way belief in repeated statements when up and this was done so that they could rule out the possibility they're thinking you know maybe it's only by contrast with new and unfamiliar statements that repeated one seem more credible that is not the case either way you do it if you've seen it before you believe it more and so this study is taken as evidence that the feeling of familiarity with an idea might be an important part or even the most important part of how we judge something is true or plausible but we should shift to asking the question of why why would increasing familiarity with the statement through repetition make it seem more true to us it makes me think about this passage from vitkin stein in his philosophical investigations about how absurd it would be to use repetition of a mental representation as evidence that the representation is correct he writes quote for example i don't know if i've remembered the time of departure of a train right and to check it i call to mind how a page of the timetable looked is it the same here no for this process has got to produce a memory which is actually correct if the mental image of the timetable could not itself be tested for correctness how could it confirm the correctness of the first memory as if someone were to buy several copies of the morning paper to assure himself that what it said was true and that's that's kind of what we're doing he's talking about mental images but the general point is a good one we're essentially buying several copies of the same newspaper to grow to increase our belief that what the newspaper says is actually accurate one possible interpretation that comes to mind is just like the idea of say walking picking out stepping stones to cross a creek right you step to one stone and it doesn't slip out from underneath you and so you use that to to make your way across the other stones and hopefully make it across the entire creek without getting your feet wet or falling in being swept downstream to the to the waterfall so to what extent are we just like trusting anything that hasn't dissolved in catastrophe thus fajar well i i would say that it would make more sense for that to be true with sort of embodied physical experimental knowledge about the world than it would for that to make sense for that to apply to semantic knowledge of things people tell us or maybe our brains just aren't good at differentiating between semantic knowledge imparted through words maybe somebody's saying all those stones will hold you up is encoded by the brain and sort of the same way as testing out at one stone at a time yeah i don't know so this is what we should explore for the rest of the episode i think why should repeatedly exposing ourselves to the same information increase our confidence in it if we didn't have good reasons to believe it.
