"optimus" Discussed on Bedtime Stories For Kids

"Are you ready for today's adventure? Today, we have a story for Jasper, who's living in Kamloops, Canada. Hi jesper. Now, if you want me to create a story just for you, then simply ask any grown-up to get in touch. Speaking of grown-ups, hey, grown-ups, did you know that the very best way to support this podcast is to leave a review and share these episodes with all your Friends and your family. Also, if you want to find out more about the podcast, you can visit bedtime stories for kids dot CO. Now, if you're ready for today's adventure, I'm ready, Jasper. I hope that you're ready as well. Can we raise our left hand? An erect head. It's high in tune as guys we can count down with me and 5, four, three, two, one let's go. Jasper is at home. When he notices that there's a helicopter flying over the house. He runs through the window to see if he can spot him. The helicopter keeps on flying in circles and circles, and it seems that the helicopter is looking for something, but isn't quite able to find it. Hey, mom. Jasper says, do you know why there is a helicopter flying over our House? I don't know jesper, Jasper's mom, Robin says, perhaps if you maybe turn on the TV, it'll be on the news. And Jasper walks into the living room and turns on the TV. Breaking news. It says people of Kamloops. This is your chance. Somewhere in your town, the mayor has hidden a treasure chest. Find a treasure chest and you will win a lifetime of free donuts. Wow, free donuts forever, Jasper says, I want to find the treasure chest. And just for runs outside and hops on his bike, if I was the mayor, then where would I hide a treasure chest? And after biking around for, let's say 30 minutes, Jasper still hasn't found a treasure chest. If only there was somebody there to help me. He says to himself, when at that moment, out of nowhere. Optimus prime, unicron and ratchet pair. You asked for help optimus prime says, yes, Jasper says, I need to find a treasure chest that the mayor has hidden. Then let's go fight unicron says. And with three transformers on my side, jesper says, I will for sure find their treasure chest. But where do we start Jessica says? Let's go to the mayor's house and see if he is winning to give us a clue. Prime says. And so Jasper, optimus prime, unicorn and wretched, make their way to mayor Ken's house, who's luckily is living close by. Jasper rings the doorbell, and mayor Ken opens the door. At first, he's a bit surprised to see Jasper and three Transformers. But then he says, hey, just for how can I help? Mere Ken, we're looking for the treasure chest. Can you give us a clue? A clue mayor Ken says, well, I am not so sure about that. Please just press. Okay, okay, fine. Then listen very carefully because I shall say this only ones. A treasure is hidden somewhere not too far. At a place where you can find spare parts for your car. Look for a car with the colors, red, white and blue. Then inside the trunk, a lifetime of free donuts will await you. Quick. I know where to go. Unicorn says. Yes, let's go up to this crime says. Well, thanks, mayor Ken, just for says, and Jasper and three Transformers make their way to an auto repair shop that is about ten minutes away. Once inside, they find themselves in a workshop where there are many, many people fixing different types of cars. In fact, there must be at least 500 cars there. What did the clues say again? What kind of car are we looking for? We're looking for a car that is red, white, and blue, optimus prime says. Okay, let's spread out at their or at least 500 cars inside, and all of the 500 cars are red. But we must find the one car that is marked red, white and blue. Let's spread out. Jasper, you come with me, prime says. And the group spreads out. It starts inspecting, car, after car, after car. Some cars are just red. Some cars are red and white, some other cars are red and blue, but where is the car that is red? White and blue. Car number 111, no. Okay, car 112. No. Car 113. Jasper says, as one by one, they look for the right car. When suddenly, I found it I found it I found it I found it. I found it just says car 114 is a car that has a red roof, a blue door, and it's completely wide on the inside. Quick. Look inside the trunk. And as Jasper opens a trunk of the red white and blue car, they're indeed is a small treasure chest inside . Jasper opens the treasure chest and inside he finds a letter that reads dear to her congratulations. You have found a treasure chest. I hope you like donuts because from today onward you get to eat as many donuts as you want forever for free. Signed mayor Ken. Yes, I love donuts too. So please share. This is awesome. I'm jesper says. Okay, let's get you home. Prime says. And prime ratchet and unicron bring Jasper back to his house where mom Robin can not believe her eyes. He lifetime of free donuts. My goodness. Luckily I did not cook any dinner yet because I think we will just be having donuts tonight. And with that, we're gonna end today's episode. Please do share it with all your Friends in your family. I hope you had fun. Join me in the next adventure. And if you want me to create a story does for you, then simply ask any grown-up to get in touch. So with that being said, I wish you good night. I wish you sweet dreams if you're not yet going to sleep. I wish you an amazing day. And I will see you in the next adventure..

They didn't do anything to help me but they said they felt for me. A religious man said you know the bad people fall into pitch. You must have some san in your life somewhere. A mathematician calculated how. I've fell into the pit. A news reporter wanted the exclusive story on my time in the pits. Fundamentalists that you know. You deserve that pent. A calvin has said if you were saying you'd never fall into the pit. An armenian said you were saving still fell into the pit. Charismatic said no problem. Just confess you're not in the pit. A realist is came along now. Brother that is a pit. An irs worker asked if he was paying taxes on the pitt. The county inspector wanted to know if he had a permit for his a self. Pitying person came along and said you have not seen anything to using my pet and optimus said things could be worse. A pessimist said things will get worse. But jesus seeing the man reached down took him by the hand and lifted him out of his. Hey man you know you may not have anybody to help you. You may not have anybody that understands. He may not have anybody that you think cares. Humane feel like you are totally invisible in this earth but let me tell you tonight. And don't you ever forget it. God sees you. He knows your name.

U. V.'s from twenty fourteen to twenty fifteen there have been at least eight fires involving those vehicles which were recalled last year because of the potential for brake fluid leaking onto a control computer causing an electrical short not only is kia recalling hundreds of thousands of Optimus and Sorrento's it's telling owners to park outside of a garage or away from structures because the fires can occur even when the cars not running dealers will install a new lower amp fuse inspect the computers and replace them if needed I'm Jackie Quinn

"So and pretty sure. That's everything i got this week. Cool okay one off topic thing real quick. I've been. I've been curious about buying something muscle related. I haven't bought anything like twenty years Other than some of the super seven stuff which. I don't count Vintage stuff that was ridiculously expensive for what it is like. The little trash cans have like ten muscle figures in like two hundred dollars which is ridiculous for what it is. Something's actually reasonable. Are the multi packs. I got one of those. This is number three. The mighty muller said it's twenty eight figures. We don't think things less than fifty bucks in the packaging is pretty nice and everything and it's twenty eight muscle figures The packaging on the shelf. I am very satisfied with with this as a purchase actually cost less than new stuff new muscle stuff and It scratches the which. I don't have to buy anything must in for another twenty years so that's cool So basically one really final thing that i got this is a Came is a lot of six trying to fill up my act. Action master collection These figures all. I'm not showing off accessories. Below like Various states of completion bond. A banzai tron. Yup actor is the banzai tron to go with the super seven one. You're going get yeah Scaife hall jackpot everybody's favorite devastator and snarl so said various levels of completion There's of action masters. Though i would probably well i guess maybe eventually i'll have a complete set like ten years but This more than doubles my collection of ash action master so especially pleased that banzai tron. Since that's when i've been wanting in jackpot and Yeah that's got this week. Hey there patriotic petri on dot com slash radio. We post at least two patriotic exclusive podcasts. There week so you should join up We also You know we have our discord which was a patriot on Goal t effort net slash discord. Which we don't really talk about that anymore. But we do have a little patron chanoine.

"So I think for a limited edition. They can do this and honestly the boxes they can just re skin them for whatever so they could potentially be used for you know things well into the future if they want to continue using this Design the but by the same token they could just reused the kingdom. Box shape for instance. Yeah but like but yeah but there's no there's no like super premium exclusive. Feel to that. I suppose yeah i just just the fence they would have gone to design this packaging and like you say maybe they will reuse this on another limited series in the future but Like that also then takes away from special premium. Feel of whatever next thing because the desert the recycled on shape. So i i mean there's certainly various angles to this argument it. Just all i'm is. It makes me wonder what the distribution plan is with these in the long run. Yep okay i guess i don't want to. It's it's one of talking about coming out of the Event studying the spotlight toy. Yeah hasbro's making its licensed toy but like everybody is gaga over the ribaud season Self transforming optimus prime. And you know you've already probably already encountered at this point. Viewer twitter radio. We have video of it and everything And actually people have been listening to our c. For at least a year over year will remember that. I was actually trying to acquire this over a year ago. the prototype for the t nine which was like a kickstarter actually was an optimist. Prime very similar to this and scammers took the video and photos of it and posting it to scam websites. And they're still doing this trying to sell it for fifty bucks and you would buy it and god knows what you would get. I got a really crappy Transferring movie style. Optimus prime does knockoff but Rogozin dot the license for transformers and they The town they went to town and they made a really nice looking self referring up in his prime. I thought it's a really amazing technology. Toy and i kind of wish sword of that. I was both in the financial and just like collecting state to be able to get into this the way i would need to but like it's a big ask on this for like our kind of collector. Yeah although it did verbal So i had the i. I bought the t nine after that the buckle. I sold it later on And it's amazing. It's an amazing item. I don't think it's a toy but it's more of an ad. I think it's lost on this but it's really more of an educational toy because you're supposed to learn how to like you know programmer robot and things like that which you know is actually practical skill..

Knox was the one that was all Like cool gray with black splotches on the beast mode try and then wealth cheater. Cheater looked at different from an original is just like more Red shifted the wasp meter was like a very pale purple. Maybe a lavender color almost And then the stripes on the wasp butler can metallic it was. That was a really really ugly. I don't actually know anymore. Why i wanna get Thorax echoes in those decades. Because it was actually kind of awful. As i think about it now. Sorry i'm Looking at some stuff up for also. I also am not feeling all that hot on scorpio. Knock which we saw Scorpion was previewed. Itn but we can. We can certainly rear our thoughts on that. I was to fill time while. Brian is not hosting the show. My big thing with scorpion. Knock is that looks like half. The tour goes missing in robot mode the whole bottom half of the torso should just pull out more. But obviously it doesn't but isn't that kind of how he was in the cartoon. He didn't look like he wasn't that stubby in the cartoon. Because i don't i don't mind it i can understand. Yeah it just so. I got a razor. Recently i talked about. I think on last week show and you know of the kingdom be stuff so far. It's felt the most to me like an original beast. Wars toilet has the most of that spirit to it. The other ones. I've handled so far. Like some of them are okay toys. But i don't get that feeling of them being what they're trying to be. I don't know if that makes sense to anybody else. The best way. I know how to describe the just the way it is handling them. And like you know looking at rhino scorpion. Particularly i just kind of getting that same sense about them. And especially with scorpio to the put so much into the scorpion tail and for the beasts day appreciate like they've made it where the stinger will actually reach past the head. No transformer scorpion. Actually does that but you know it's taking so much mass up. I'm afraid they're going to be actually know. Pretty small is going to make the scaling even worse than that would have been start. I wanna report right now. That the fox kids tranche was minimum sealed.

The inventor of the cellphone on whether Big Tech represents the new AT&T monopoly

"The final segment of her. Four interview with martin cooper inventor the cell phone and this is your daily charge in your book multiple. You've contrasted the the hubris of eighteen monopoly over motorola's more consumer centric approach I'm curious as we're looking at. At some of the scrutiny. That big tech is facing today if you see. Examples of that hubris in some of the giants said that are facing scrutiny. Whether it's google or apple or facebook amazon do you see more. At and t. Or more motorola because there is all of them. Talk about you know serving the Consumer meaning consumers needs. But i'm curious what your perspective is on what you think they are or how they how their analysis to while i do We do have a problem because google amazon and facebook. They start to look like monopolies in in their narrow area point out to these are all very news named. we haven't really learned how to manage. These kinds of saying good of the problem starts out with the people. People think that they're getting something for nothing though. They provide all their personal information to google or amazon or facebook or other social media and they think that they're getting value of because they get free something while. I got news for you as you get anything. Nothing some are other. We have to educate people to have them stand that their information their personal data has now you and they shouldn't be give it away sir. Nothing they should be somehow or other there has to be equity and when we start getting people to understand that they're going to be competitive offering won't steal your observations your relationship ways. You're unaware of saw the same thing that happened to us in. Nineteen eighty-three when they split of the bell system. Some are other competitive. Influences are gonna fix nap before that. I'm a dreamer. I would optimus. I think did of people change. People make these demands and say. I don't want your free snow. I i want control my own information. There will be people come along. That will say i could do that. I can charge you for by services. And i can pay you for your derision. I think that's the solution to the google facebook problem and possibly for the amazon echo. Some are other having monopolies are bad it. If we don't have competition we all suffer in our president situation of. But i'm optimistic. Look people are smarter and these things are new enough. So we're learning how to do it we are. We're going to fix the problem. But w we do have a problem. Now when i went to buy something now irael about the fact that boy. I hated it.

Yesterday's a jack boone's who's a professor in the department of ece fisa goal in planetary sciences unto colorado boulder. He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack. Benny come back to talk about the radio. Frequency of savitri on the far side of the more that you're designing you bet sounds good. This is a scientific sense.

Please reach out to in full at scientific sense dot com back Jack you're talking about upcoming missions to the moon Some of the manned mission some of some of the technology that you're sending up there there is a gateway bridges like the space station but attested propulsion its zone. Sorta are based entity source. And it's more dealer things could be attached to it. That may be subject is imploding. Creating that a launchpad so to speak to go to mars perhaps habitats that a large announced a mining for water mighty for hydrogen and other things and so he the program is called autonomous. So could be portal light program and underneath optimists. There are various things being planned right. So what are the The primary objectives all of those radius approved betas projects. I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be

"Yes, Lawrence of Arabia was highly influenced by The Iliad. Yes while he did complain that it had no strategic value. They still read it and he was an extraordinary dead. Like I said, yes this homework books have inspired the hero with a thousand faces a lot of his arguments that Joseph academics are based off of the story lines from Homer and then there's the the book Ulysses and then obviously the Indian which will probably cover at some point. Yeah, which is Aeneas getting his own book. So you'll see it everywhere. It's the stories ability to force us to analyze the the human nature and the fragile point of our entire fate we're fated to have a dog named life, but because that we are doomed we're going to take advantage of it. We're going to live it to the fullest and that's just something that you just can't bypass especially at 700 BCE. It's a huge moment. Well, we're all doomed except Achilles had a choice to be doomed doomed and he was a freak of nature. Yes. Yes. That's true. Yes, what's not be like Achilles was mother was a goddess the the job. Of the story is be like diomedes. Yes. That's what we all want to do. Diabetes is mobile and I'm going to finish off with one last thing there is There's a there's an old Maxim that was created by I think it was Leo Leo Tulsa Tulsa way, I always say his name wrong. He said that there are only two types of plot lines and choice of stories. The first one is a man walked into a man went on a journey in the second one was a stranger came to town. But then to take that someone else added both of them were created and written by Homer that is the lasting effect. All of our plot lines. All of our story lines are based off of homer. So that's that's just something that you can't escape the inventor of irony. He makes you fall in love with every character. Yes and one way or another each character sticks with you. Yep. Diomedes most. Well, yeah, I like Diet media. That's all I have right? Thanks again guys, Dustin. Do you have anything else you wanted to talk about? Before we go? I just well, I just wanted to add the you know doing the cover in The Iliad has been pretty fun. Yeah. Actually you think it would be tiring job. The same the same thing pretty much for what is the seven episodes? I think that I've read The Iliad more times in these past couple of months than.

"When he first encounters Hector before they fight. He actually tells him if I could I would kill you and just eat you raw right here. Yeah, and and with the funeral rites we talked about last episode a little bit they him sacrificing those youths. That's a huge. No. No, that was the one thing that separated the Greeks from The Barbarians, you know, they frowned upon that big gun. So yeah, he's he's not dead. Online every adjective that's used to describe Achilles is ones that are also used to describe the divinity's The Immortals. So he's definitely not the same. He's not on thier level is it's kind of a strange way that they have to do it. But then so at the end, he's the dead Earth part. This is this is a pretty big part. So when they're burying or after they burn them they take the bulb and then they bury them in the earth in this kind of goes back to the book to where Helen is talking to premium and she's talking about how she she can't see her brothers and she's sure that it's because they they couldn't show their faces in shame but then the poet go it goes on to say that her brothers were both buried beneath the life-giving Earth in Sparta. So again, we're seeing that Achilles dragging this body on the earth, which remember to the Greeks is not just dirt. This is Zeus is Grandma so dial yeah, so he is in a way he's denying her her spoils each guy gets their own. So she's supposed to be given the the the the life back. So he's denying her and not just denying her. He's just taunting her dragging it all over so it's a huge insult and this is probably one of the other reasons why Apollo is still mad. It's like the hubris of this you guys are just cool with this. Yeah. Come on, this was anybody else. This would be done and over with you know, you've got some growing up to do so, it's just a giant of front to the Divinity..

"What they do when they supplicate off. They throw themselves down at their feet and then they reached their hand up to touch their their chest and they do this for multiple reasons. So one arm is wrapped around the legs and then the other arm is wrapped on the chest wound up reaching up to the chassis two reasons. The first is this person is obviously in a very prone situation. So it's letting them know that he's throwing his own safety At His Feet he's not here for any danger. You can see my hands. I'm very vulnerable because they also they you can't see me right now, but they lift their head straight UPS. Their neck is completely exposed as they're doing this. So in one foul or like one not felt 1 a.m. Will move their he lets it Achilles know that there's nothing nothing bad going. I'm just here a man grieving for his son. Yeah, so and you know that quote we mentioned earlier it ends with you know, I've done Something that no man in this world is done in that is put my hands to the the lips of the man that flew my son. Yep. And when Priam says this to Achilles and also brings up a perison of him and kill his own father that really strikes Achilles hard cuz he's he starts thinking he's like, yeah, you know, I'm going to die here. I miss my daddy. I miss my dog and I'm going to die here. I'm going to get to see my body and say dad daddy. Yeah, that's that's yeah, right Achilles Pappy. Yeah, but you know, he's thinking he's like, that's my dad's not going to get to see my body again, you know premium has a chance to bury his on. My dad's not going to have that opportunity cuz I'm going to die here. That's what I'm just going to do. That's why I'm fading for since I chose a path of the warrior. So he agrees. He's like premium. I will give you Hector's body. But he doesn't let Priam see it. But first let me tell you a tale. I don't think it goes that far but but he won't let Priam see it. He has he has the body cleaned and washed and then Anointed with oil then he himself wraps it up in some of the robes that pre him and Broadway and achilles carries Hector's body himself and puts it in premiums cart or wagon and he'd the reason he doesn't want pre-owned to see the body because he fears that if Priam sees it, he will get angry and attack Achilles enforce Achilles to kill him which would be an insult to Zeus and he doesn't want that to happen to eliminate that as a possibility. He will not let him see the body but you know, it's pretty wise move keeps everybody.

"And it just flops of the ground. Yeah, the Divine killed there's a little unfair. Yeah, it just hits that she'll just hits the ground and then Hector's like, okay. Well, I got to focus here. He's got a spear on the throne know he's like to fobus Laxmi. the fobus looks around to focus isn't there. He's gone, and that's when Hector realizes that he was doomed by the gods and it was at this moment that Hector realized that he believed up exactly. That's exactly what it is off. Cuz that's when that's when he realizes that the fobus was never with him to focus is behind the city walls. That was one of the gods that convinced him to stay and fight and die to quote American Dad Hector picked up a whole bouquet of whoopsy-daisy. Yes. Exactly. He is he's doomed here we go head up. What's up next what he'll he is doomed but he's got one last shot in Glorietta takes it he draws his sword and leaps at Achilles. Now everyone keep in mind he's wearing Achilles armor. So who else would know more about the imperfections and where the vulnerable spots are in that armor. Probably the guy who, you know adorned it off for most of his life. So while Hector's flying through the air Achilles just kind of measures in measures them up real casually and finds he knows what that sweet spot is and just lines it up a Hector gets within Striking Distance Achilles just Spears them right through the neck right through the throat. However, the blow did not sever Hector's windpipe. So Hector was actually still able to speak and in in Hector's dying breath. He's like, okay, you got me. Please let my parents have my body love my family and my body and a killer. She's like no, I told you that happening like that. They can get in your body. You're going to be feasted on by the dogs and the birds and you ain't going to be nothing. And then Hector was like, oh I'm dead. I'm slain comes Lane and that's where Shakespeare got it. So after Hector's breezes long breath Killers jerks. I was throwing just drops on the ground like like, you know a hot mic drop. Like, there you go. He looks back at the Greeks and he's like well, I got him War's over pretty much. He's like you guys can do what you're going to do, but I got a more and patroclus. Well all the Greeks come up to Hector's dead body and they stab it and they beat it all the Greeks around around that area come up and stab Hector's dead body and beat and beat up his dead body wash for all the grief. He's calls them that seems like a really rational indeed reaction. Yep. Get your licks in I guess. Yep now that's not all it doesn't stop there droll poor Hector's dead body. Achilles then he it says he he cuts him like around the heel and ties it together with a leather strap. And then he Ties That to the back of his Chariot and just drags Hector's dead body behind his Chariot kicking up dust and you know, I'm sure it's not a pretty sight know and this is driving around walls of Troy and the side of this obviously makes King Priam and queen hecuba start.

"He doesn't stand his ground. It's like the meme, you know the from that is it that I think it's an Eric show where he's like, let me page. Let me in he's like pulling on the bars. That's what he was doing. Yes, I please let me. So like I said, he takes off running and kill he's gives chase after him now Hector runs around the city three times three times. He runs around the city. Not a good luck. Not a good look at all. That's that's going to that's going to diminish your your rep right there. What around after he ran around the city the third time Zeus looks down and he pities Hector and he actually, it's saving him and he contemplates this allowed. He's like, hey, what if I just save Hector now? Listen, what if I took away the excitement, I guess I'm kind of tired of watching this hear me. Let me let me just save Hector. Let me spin ball. Well, Athena is not down with that. She's like really I don't think that's a good idea. Cuz none of the gods are going to respect you. If you do that with Mortal his X gon give it up and Zeus tries to cover it up. He's like I was just kidding. I was going to say that's literally what it says in here. He's like, oh no, I wasn't really had to do it Mortals. Yeah. Yeah. Yep. Ever what I care for burns. So then Zeus measures out the fates on a scale of Achilles and Hector and Hector side drops straight to the floor. So he's toast wage his his his his times, noon in but unbeknownst to Achilles Hector swapped armor with his father premium know. Oh, they're not maybe in a different story may be down during Hector's fourth lap around the city Athena appears before him disguised as de fobus who was one of Nature's most loyal advisers and I think a half brother.

So he feels like he looks like an idiot if he Retreats so he's a rock and a hard place pretty much wage, but nonetheless premium is up there trying to get him to come in the walls. And this is what premium says he says. Do come Within These Walls? My son save the men and women of our city life is sweet. Do not let Achilles rob you of life in win glory for himself pity me also an old man, but not too old to know not too old to be unhappy a miserable portion indeed father Zeus will give will. Give me then to perish in my old age after I've lived to see many trouble seeing my son's destroyed and my daughter's dragged into slavery my house ransacked little children dashed on the ground and fury, my son's wives dragged Away by Greek hands and took self last of all someone shall strike me down or pierce my body and leave me dead in my door for carrying dogs to devour my own table dogs my Watch Dogs, which I have faith with my own hands will go mad and lap my blood in lies sated at the at the door where they used to watch for a young man. All his decent when he is killed in battle game. to be mangled with wounds always Honorable in his death Whatever May Come But a hoary beard and a white beard and nakedness violated by dogs when an old man is killed. There is the most pity pitiable sight that mortal eyes can see I thought that was a birth accurate quote because that you know, when a young man dies in battle, it's you know, kind of praised upon like he's glorified, but you know an old man who's lived see everything, you know everything you could imagine he's just going to died pretty much shamefully and then everyone's just going to pity him. Yeah. I thought that was a pretty accurate depiction of how that really goes. Greeting. It's really cool too is you see this across different cultures. Yeah.

"An old man like me near the end of his days. It may be that he is distressed by those who live round about him and there is no one to defend him from Peril and death but he indeed so long as he hears that you still live is glad at home in hopes every day that he will see as well. Love son returned home from Troy, but I am all unhappy since I had the best sons in the broad land of Troy and I say not one of them has been left fifty. I had when the men of Greece came nineteen born to me of one womb the others of women in my household all those many have fallen in battle and my only thoughts on who by himself was our safeguard that one You Killed the other day fighting for his country Hector for him. I come now to your Camp to redeem him from you. May I bring a rich Ransom over Kelly's fear God and Petty me remembering your own father, but I am even more to be pitied. I've endured to do what no other job. And in the world has ever done to lift my hand to the lips of the man who slew my son and that is the scene. That is the probably the most talked-about seen in the office. It is where Priam beseeches Achilles and some of you might remember from the movie Troy cuz Peter O'Toole, yes me up there. Probably one of the best actors in the movie. I mean rapid dope. Yeah, but Peter O'Toole's he's he's he's a big name his way back. Yep.

We've been requested by some of our fans too long as a just a rundown of and a reminder of what we did in our previous episode and then we're going to hit you with the the moment that you've all been waiting for. This is it the burrito is finally coming out to play. Going to kill some Hector. Yep. It's just been answered. So in our last episode we started off with menelaos defending patroclus his body off. The Trojans eventually the Trojans got Achilles armor off patroclus, but they weren't able to get his body. The Greeks were successful in defending the body and getting it back to Camp off once news reached. The killers of patroclus had died. He made a big scene wailed in the sand wailed in the sand, you know Academy Award winner seen. Yep, and then he kind of did a Battle Cry to scare the Trojans away which he did which I I think that in the previous episode, I think that my Screech was probably accurate..

"Question. How did he do? Okay. So here's the thing about Joe Brown. This is why I think you like him so much. Oh, it's a really great quarterback that just plays hockey team. So he's like your deck Prescott your a bitch. I thought you were like the light bulb in my head went off last night when I was watching it. I was like, well, he's a good little quarterback like Dak Prescott. He just plays for no wonder Jasmine likes them so much. By the way, I have you know you Optimus Prime Don the word shity so it cut out on you said shity team. That's all right. I show you going to say that we were going to like look we could be an item now. I'm just disappointed. Oh, I'm sorry. Now he's to you guys wouldn't match very well. He's back to blonde hair doughy eyed, you know, he still has his dreams and happiness. I was just that his way too innocent for you. You know, you just strip him of all of it off. I would fare. I tend to do this with all men though. Let's be real I tend to slowly take away their hopes dreams, you know their desk for Life their happiness any kind of happiness life. It's it's what I do to all the men that are in my life. Okay, so so that's your analysis which fuck off so that's no that's my analysis regards to jobber. Okay, my analysis in regards to the Browns. All right. Here's the thing about the Browns obj less. Always he had headlines Amy. Okay. This team has a boss ass offense page. There is no reason why they shouldn't be scoring touchdowns all the fucking time. I mean think about the players that they have Nick Chubb Fremont who both went off last night Jarvis Landry. I mean you couldn't get you can get that is a fantasy leagues dream right here, right? Yep. There is no reason why this team shouldn't be amazing because you know what their defense is really cool. Good to this team should be really competitive and making the playoffs and they're not understand now Grandma, who knows what's going to happen tell you what happened last night watching this game Baker Mayfield just he changed into a different person. Like when he like a human in a good way in a good way when he came off the field. He didn't go and sit down on the bench. He stood on the sidelines and watched his defense playing and then he I mean he rallied those guys. He was not going down to Joe burrow. I mean, you could totally he's like, there's no fucking way. This guy's going to show me up and there's no way I'm losing to the fucking bangles and you know what he totally carried his team. He really truly did stepped up it was offensive. Now if they can do that every single weekend this team is really like it has all the weapons that it takes to be a fantastic team which made me. Made me Ponder the fact that there's some teams that you just expect to lose and then there's some teams that you expect to win like the team's you expect to when you expect the steel real attacks right now. You expect the Cal you expect to win. You don't expect the Lions or the Bangles or the Browns. I mean the low-hanging fruit, you know, you don't expect those teams to win. So when they have when they have rosters long, the Browns have their own turning into a team that you they should be winning with what they have. So it sounds to me that the Browns are basically like if you're looking at it from a fantasy league point, it's the guy in league who basically cheese his way to get the best team because everybody else is internet either sucked or they were on auto draft or they forgot there was a draft right? That's the guy in the if you're equating it to a fantasy team roster birth. Okay. Number one. I liked it. You know I prematurely said shut up about the Cowboys cuz I thought you were going to say that you expect them to lose and I like that you're saying that you expect them to win because that's what you do you absolutely suck. Oh you that's what we do problem. That's where we are a we are an elite Lord team. Anyway, that's what you're going with I am. Well, I don't know the baker Mayfield is still a shitstain to me so good for him rallying his team. He's still a shitstain. I do love his Progressive commercials their home like the latest one. Yes. They are the latest one where he's like. Oh, it's getting ready to rain. Help me cover the furniture. And two guys like you mean the stance he's really good in those commercials. If you could only be as good a quarter as he is in those commercials. We would be set the dog pound would be set. Well, we are you a dog pound or now. I mean, I you know, I have a soft spot for the Browns just cuz they always lose. And ever since that movie came out draft day with Kevin Costner yet. Oh, I'm out. I'm done with you. done with you Amy. Your brown spot is showing. I know I know you know, I just I'm weird that way I don't understand it. Either it is I don't either try to figure you out every day and I just you know, I do too and since I'm like, oh I get myself today and then sometimes I'm like now he's nope don't understand myself today, but that's okay. That's most of us as well. Amy. So rest assured you're not in Company by yourself. I think it is twenty-twenty it is. Okay. Well that's sad because now Joe burrow Hollow be his name Falls 200 and two. Yeah, it does and but you know what this guy he's he's a good quarterback. He is is there he should be in his helmet I think time to get mr. Guys. Sometimes he tries to carry his offense which isn't great because then he gets pummeled by pencil like he got pummeled last night several times. Well, you sure. Why does LSU brain sure what he's trying to win? And I totally get it. But at the same time he needs careful because you know, oh, he's a starting quarterback in the NFL. Well getting them know and you just see a lot of what he was doing at LSU that worked and I think you know like every rookie has this learning curve right where you come out transition from college to the big leagues and it's like, oh, okay, it's funny cuz I was like really different style of football right? I said to Bruce last night. I'm like, surprised that they just threw this guy in the deep end. I mean they just started. Oh totally, I mean, they didn't granted he dangles. What else do they have? I'm. That's the problem. They don't have anything else but you know like places in my where to get backing up Fitzpatrick that makes sense. It makes sense for him to kind of, you know way into the NFL same thing with Dwayne Haskins, you know, he he was back up for a while until he kind of learned his name. Yeah, now Joe girl, man. They just threw him in the deep and they're like here you go, bro, you go bu. Yeah. Well, you know what gotta he is trying I mean, he's playing his ass off out there. No he is but he is and that's why I'm like super team Joe burrow like we gotta do this man. Like I'm telling you. It's the stogie. We'll do it get this guy that mean that you're a Bengals fan know how fucking no. No, I like. Oh bji in a Browns fan. I like Joe burrow Ina Bengals fan, you know, I will always bleed silver and blue Amy. That's the only color I would leave home. Anyway, let's move on to the Chiefs. Okay, love us and Pat Mahomes you love some Andy Reid do that cheaper mofo back, right? So Andy Reid's big old windshield mask that he had on. When was it last week? I can't remember. Yeah. We're only in week to segregated windshield wipers. Yeah, so people were like what the hell and so like it was fogging up. You couldn't see shit, but this may be a thing. This may be a thing coming to a coach near you because off on the first Sunday of the NFL season when this happened several coaches were seen either one not wearing masks or to not wearing them properly because the mask police were out and the league is not going to stand for that. It's currently vice president of football operations. Troy Vincent issued a memo this week saying protocol requires all individuals with bench area access including coaches and members of the club medical staff to wear face coverings at all times failure to adhere this requirement will result in accountability measures being imposed against offending individuals and or clubs. However, Amy, there is no word on what those accountability measures will be so that to me that phrase is what kind of sticks out to me. What does that mean? do you do find them? Probably I mean you can look dead. Here's the thing. They're coaching on the sidelines of talking into Mike's they have to be able bird they have to be able understood. It's really hard for all of the to happen on your face plus all these guys are around each other all the time. They're all you know, I practiced together around the field. They're hitting each other all in each other's faces, you know, I mean and how many people have tested positive since the start of season one? Yeah. They did a very good 2700 players so very good job with with that right off because like you said, they've been implementing measures. They've been following the rules, you know, they've been testing a lot, you know, we got into this, you know leading into this actual season. Jeez, how many coronavirus updates that we talked about on this podcast about hey, this is what the League's doing. This is what they're making them do kind of thing. So something is clearly working. It's really great to see that that's positive news that you know that they're only seeing that wage. Chat, I think I that they should I really think they should go with a handy read mask to be quite honest can still see the coaches face. The microphone can kind of be up underneath it. So they may be able to understand what the coaches saying and and you're shielded. You know, when somebody comes up to your face, you know, I mean, think that that's fine but having to wear them like when it's just, you know covering your face in your nose again, like it's hard for me to understand people when they're wearing a mask and talking to me. Yes, I mean, so imagine imagine being on the field the quarterback coaches saying the guys in booth coordinators up in the booth are trying to understand what the guys on the field coordinators on the field are trying to say, I mean, it's just it's a it's crazy. So it's a shitshow you gotta be able to walk. You gotta be able to your job. I would take that looking like I've got the windshield of a Camry in front of my face the whole time vs Lee having something on my mouth cuz that's frustrating me. Yeah. Give me the telephone number. Windshield all day long over the you know, suffocating face masks which by the way speaking of Tesla. Did you see that their reports of some them being janky like getting like parts that were like really cheap shity on some of the Tesla's that were falling apart marvelous. I know so yet twenty-twenty doesn't happen. Just wanted to put that in there for you. All right coming up next in offsides, you know fall like we said is upon us. Although you wouldn't know here in Texas. It's still like an anus outside but here's something for your home that will make it fall feel less anus e okay Mom handles some new ones that are coming out and they're actually already out and we'll explain to you with those candles our next. All right, let's get into offsides and we've got some candles to tell you about so Amy, yeah, you know football's back.

Enabling Precision Medicine through Proteomics

"Lodge again and the ability to run a test of five thousand proteins in the blood to gain new insights into health and disease. I WanNa talk about two specific areas that you're working in. But before we do that perhaps we can begin with why someone would wanNA sample five, thousand proteins once we think of looking for a specific protein that's a biomarker for z's but what's the benefit of looking at this whole realm of proteins? Sure well, and that's that's really the. The crux of of what's different about what we do here at some logic. On on this developing diagnostic side and that is that We've known for a long time that. Proteins would be the best information source for. Human biology in potentially to predict things about conditions and disease but. The problem has been measuring enough proteins at any one time to get what I would call. A full-body. Signal. If you think about the comparator here is believed that since we can measure all genes in the human body that. The doing genyk risk assessment looking at expression of all these genes may give us an information. That someone's risk for things we can come back to that later turns out that approach is not as good as we would hoped, it would be. And the reason it's not as good as we'd hoped, it would be is because jeans aren't dynamic they don't change over time that will change with age and changed with. Your your genome is the same at age twenty five is it is at age forty, five and sixty five. John doesn't change when you're sick or changing you take drugs but all of those things. Change with your were there proteome But the problem has been, you know measuring enough proteins at any one time to get sort of a full body signal. Rather than measuring one protein at a time and then trying to correlate that some disease process the second problem is been. Gosh even if we could measure thousands of proteins at a time. How would we be able to make any sense out of it? In so The thing that's just happened to occur and that some logic happens to be the. You know at the at the leading edge of is we figured out a way to measure thousands of proteins at a time rather than hundreds of what almost everybody else in the world does. In sort of clinical commercial context and then we. have been able to to use machine learning. To look at those patterns of protein expression of those thousands of proteins correlate them to. Thinks that you really WanNa know about. What exactly does your some scan platform do and and how does it work? Yeah. So To sort of back up into the technology itself what? What are found discover thirty thirty years ago is that You can actually take little pieces of nucleic acid a DNA. In, in in solution. So when they're in you know the body's liquid format. These little pieces of DNA will fold into three. D. confirmational shapes. And he knew in his research group thirty years ago that. Are, which is very similar to DNA in sales actually does this it folds into confirmational shapes and moves proteins around in cells in has important roles. So this question was, why can't we just make a library of millions of different? Little pieces of DNA and select the ones out by dentist their shape would bind to the shape of a protein people thought it was crazy and so. In in in these little pieces, of DNA, Short, they're not jeans or slow random sequences of nucleic acid. Are called OPTIMA. and. So he was the CO founder of the. Science thirty years ago. In what we do is we've developed a library of thousands of these little pieces of DNA. We've modified them to make them buying the pre-teens even more. Specifically, reliably in because of that, if you will, we sort of engineered. Of Synthetic. Antibodies that can recognize proteins, but they're not antibodies pieces denying. In the asset that we do. We expose the body fluid to these thousands of of afterwards we call ourselves immersed because they've been modified to work even better. And so we just happen to have currently five thousand different of these different uniform these by the end of the sheer will have seventy, five hundred. You're pretty own has about twenty thousand canonical when I say canonical basic protein structures. But again, until we came along, you can only measure a few hundred time. So we expose a body fluid to you know a solution full of these. Summers that they bind proteins the we throw the unbound protein away. In the unbound optimus away or the summers away. We then or left with these little pieces in click acid bound to proteins. We then throw the proteins away. And we measure the. DNA. They're. Using we use an array. where an array were, you know you've got a complementary sequence printed on the slide and If you can identify whether or not that sequence was there in your specimen that gets when it. Binds to the slide at lights up. You can also do this Sunday called next generation sequencing but what we do we turn. Protein measurement into DNA measurement, and that's sort of the magic. As far as the tests themselves that are derived from this. The magic, there is actually a what's best described as is pattern recognition. And so the way to think about the way the test works. So give me your blood sample, we run it a we we expose it to our some immerse. We should out what proteins in that sample in how much we can do both relative to one another, and they'll. So now we have this pattern of protein expression in your blood for thousands of proteins. We've run this acid several hundred thousand

Travel to Devon and Cornwall, England

"Welcome to amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Devon and Cornwall. I'd like to welcome to the show. Ryan Duffield from Devon who has come to talk to us about the city of Plymouth in southern England and also the surrounding area, including Devon and Cornwall. Ryan welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me Howie. Good well, you know and it's funny because we just talked about the English coast, but we've moved a little further to the West and talk. Talk about a different region of the coast than we did on the show recently when we talked about Suffolk and the the downs. Why should someone go to Plymouth Plymouth? Actually it's a fantastic city. It's a city that goes amazing maritime history and tradition that dates right back to the medieval times, but actress quite often overloaded when people think of cities in England. They think oh of Lunden Bama again. Manchester Liverpool perhaps. I think Plymouth is just as much. Interest is end if those cities, but it's just north of us so much, and I think particular twenty American. Listeners interested is also the city where the pilgrim father set sail on the mayflower. Sixteen twenty associated with the traditional thanksgiving. S Pre interesting point. Is also surrounded by beautiful coastline. It's right on the border of the county's of Devon and Cornwall these are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK down in the South West of England, said Scott lost offer. Willing we're looking for dividend cornwall if we go down to the English map and you go far bottom left. That's where we are, and if you go further bottom further left from there, you end up in the ocean. So we're. Right on the south coast of Devon Oklahoma so are literally facing out to the Atlantic okay well and facing out towards the south. Yes, excellent well, what? Are. You GonNa. Recommend Fourth Festival is obviously starting in the city centre, so the city is actually pretty much based around the coast and its large harbours, so I would say starting day Sutton Haba, which is the main harbor in the city and that so where the city spreads out from I'm from around the. You've all sorts of things to say side. You've got things like the mayflower steps. Steps, which is where there's the pilgrim fathers actually set sail from and this museum dedicated to that you've also got what's the Barbican? which is this old coupled street state specs, medieval periods, which is full of these is correct, slim pubs and bars, restaurants shops things like that, and it's one of the few passes cities. The city was actually bombed June. Sacramento War by the Nazis and the. The city was destroyed, and this is one of the well preserved areas of that city out, also recommend site just basically following the coastline of the city's known as Britain's Ocean City for good reason, because it will revolve around that and overlooking the area. What looks like is huge, fool trust, but what actually is actively operating? Royal Marines and Royal Navy base. That's right in the heart of. Of the city and they still have people that you can save people, training and things, and they actually do tours of that interestingly and I'm not sure how many military basis you can know many Abitur tour during the middle of the day. You can't do that well and it seems like one of the reasons they do that, too. Is You mentioned? This is not a new military base. Quite historical, so this is where the ships sailed out to fight the Spanish Armada for absolutely, and the city is very synonymous with Francis Drake. Who is the man who led the defeating of the Spanish the? He was from Plymouth. Things like the main shopping center in the city named optimus could drake circus, and you'll find lots of other places around the city named after him. You also have along. Along the Bob sell them this coupled medieval street. You have the Plymouth Gin distillery, which is actually the oldest gin distillery in the country, and of course you can go in then you can have tools that you can find out how the GIN is made. You can find out the botanic WHO's they use? Jin's at the end of that. So if you're GIN, Fan Pathak place to go we'll. Get into more detail on all these things. So in terms of the BARBICAN. For instance you mentioned the Plymouth Gin distillery. There are different pubs and things. Do you have a favorite pub? Is there someplace that we ought to check out? There is a place I feel bad commending it, but there's a web spins now Weber spins is a national chain across the country. If you live in the UK, you know about web of Spain's. They've actually got really nice bar that down on the Babacan. Babacan, which is right by the Plymouth Gin Distiller Selfish Nickel Jin from that, but they've got huge selection of our genes of a drinks there, but all the buildings there because they're all medieval style buildings that is then become ingrained within the actual itself garnered sovereignty. Highly recommend that this is places down the thyroid record. Think of any off the top of my head. Okay mix over a new kind of places and very traditional old pubs as well which great.

We've recognized that we see you but despite all of that turns out you can actually Plan for the future and save the world at the same time amazing. We have with us this week. A Beena Venkataraman. She's the author of the forthcoming book. The optimists telescope is Great Bryan actually found out that not a real telescope body was telescope. he was a little bit but he's excited again because as awesome. She really was fantastic. And I'm excited for this book and I love that. She wants to the episodes great. We used to do that. And people didn't like that. Yeah right right and I was about to again. They would say. Why did you talk about it when you're about to talk about it? We were young. We didn't know that was years ago. Okay here we go. Let's go talk to being okay. Our guest today's Beena Venkataraman and together. We're GONNA talk about planning for chaos strategies when it's basically mad Max out there be welcome. Thank you so happy to be here. We are very happy. Have you being if you don't mind? Why don't you tell anybody who you are and what you do? Sure I'm trauman. I'm the author of the optimus telescope thinking ahead in a reckless age new book and I teach in the program on science technology and society at Mit where brainwash young college students. Perfect you one of those people like a good brainwashing mill. Right right right it's different good brainwashing straight. That's what Lennon bought too but No that sounds great. We yeah we're again. We're so happy to have is going to be a great Combo then just as a reminder to everyone and so you know I don't know if we talked about it before the before reporting We're just GONNA go over some. Oh we did great. I was listening. We're going to go over some Context for our for our question Our topic today and then dig and do some Action oriented questions that get to the core of why we should all care about it and you and what we can all do to support you sound. Good it's great awesome beano. We'd like to start with one important question to set the tone for things and I know you said you listen to some episodes of one. My apologies For All that time you can never get back to. You cheated a little bit but if you could just tell us why you are vital to the survival of the species am I know I. I think I'm I'm vital. Because everyone's vital to the survival species. I think to be alive today. We're facing critical tipping points. The Melting Arctic the rising seas We're all right. If you think about us in the fabric of time if you think about the generations of people alive today we have such extraordinary power to shape the future we have such extraordinary power To do things at scale the scale of the planet and we know about what we're doing we know the half-life of our radioactive as we know How long are pollution is going to linger in the atmosphere and heat up the planet. And so I think is one among many It's it's sort of like we all have to act. It's going to take action other levels to do something about it. That said I just had a friend. Tell me she said you need to be the nightingale. Like what a did like. She was smoking something and she wasn't sure sober and what she said. Was you need to sing the song that people feel in their hearts that haven't yet brought into sound into words? Sure wasn't smoking. I'm sure but you know this idea. And she said that's how the revolution starts about was how she ended it like L. Singing to another nine going on. It's like no pressure. Just have to the song that's in people's hearts but I can think of like the ideal case of of the book I just wrote. I mean yeah I hope I am like bring two words and bringing into action by the deepest highest aspirations that we have to actually care for the feature actually be good ancestors for future generations be remembered as the people who who actually saved the planet instead of instead of cursing.

Biodiversity must move up international agenda, following Australia bush fires

"Than one hundred. Wildfires are still raging across Australia with record-breaking temperatures and drought contributing to the loss of more than six million actors of land. There is home to some of the most unique plants and animals in the world. Some estimates suggest that around half a billion animals have burned to death in the state of New South Wales alone in an interview with you and use John Scanlon special envoy for the African Parks nonprofit orgnization in former secretary general of seats the UN Becht Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species said that increasing threats to biodiversity must be lift up the international agenda The australian-born Environment and conservation expert spoke to Julia Dean from our UN Information Centre enter in Canberra. These are tragedy tragedy for people. People have lost their lives They property livestock. And it's also uh-huh tragedy for wildlife. We've seen something like eleven million hectares lost and I've figures of Iran. One billion animals have been lost through the fires. And that's an instrument and some of these animals Quite unique habitats. So it's devastating and I think ministers recently coded holded an ecological catastrophe. And I. I think I'd adopt the same terms. Straight is a negative country. It has unique wildlife fan nowhere else on the planet other than the Stra and there are a number of species that have been put at great risk through the scale and extent of these flies on a personal night. Right you are from. And what is your reaction to what specifically happened on. Kangaroo loudon inside personally heartbreaking to see what's happening there entangle die die. I grew up in Adelaide as you said I visited. Kangaroo Island as a child with the family Went on a Ymca camp to Kangaroo Island When I was in legal practice actus I spend a lot of time there and when I was chief executive of Environment Heritage and Aboriginal Affairs obviously the National Parks on the until under our I watch and it's it's devastating to see the scale of the loss on kangaroo island such a beautiful? I mean fantastic community really strong community. They eh EH. Extraordinary wildlife fantastic landscapes beautiful produce to see the scale of the FIS hitting that island. What it's done for people uh property livestock and wildlife is just devastating Koalas in particular? What do you think is the man? Do you have any idea of what the actors in general in ruin is the population of animals. that a big hit so badly. The interesting thing. Koalas is that we introduced to kangaroo island really as a as a safe haven for them and they have. The population is growing significantly in. It's fantastic. It's clemency free population of Kuala a safe zone for Koala and and we hid. They've probably lost half of the population which is terrible if you think Animals dying in the FIS and getting injured through the FIS is and that such scale and the populations taken a huge hit not just On kangaroo island but across other parts of Australia so it's really Put the much more difficult position than than it's ever been before yet. Terrible and do you think there would be any role for the UN or other multilateral institutions institutions to get involved in helping to rebalance the unique flora and fauna of Australia wants the Pfizer at the United Nations is a large organization with many. The different components is united. We have some significant meetings coming up this year there will be the meeting the conference of the parties to the Convention on Biological School Diversity in Kunming in China and at this meeting countries of looking at what sort of by Vesey framework we should have between twenty twenty and twenty thirty thirty. So how should we deal with the loss of biodiversity that we're experiencing what sort of measures should be taken and certainly climate change is a very big part ought to that compensation along with all the other threats to diversity. So I think we have a chance to to recalibrate rethink recognized that at the threats threats to biodiversity including those coming from climate. Change Asa via and you know we have according to recent UN reports million species at risk of extinction over coming decades nights if we don't change course so quickly. That conference gives us an opportunity by globally and in the context of Australia to rethink where we are with biodiversity Are we on the right track. Are we taking the right measures to ensure that we're not losing it and also be the twenty meeting of the conference of the parties to did the comic convention and we'll be looking at the Paris Agreement and nationally determined contributions. There's also an opportunity there to look at. What sort of responses are being taken to climate? I'm a change. Not just in mitigation but also inadaptation and building resilience. which is such a big issue for Australia and other countries as well? How are we going to adapt to changing climate conditions? And just done that diversity has been at the forefront of the climate change discussion. No that's unfortunate. It and biodiversity has not been well enough recognized in the contribution that biodiversity makes in terms of being able to mitigate adapt build resilience to climate change but also the contribution that it makes people's personal health and wellbeing contribution it makes to development into generating people's jobs so we really need to leaked by the up the international agenda. And that's certainly what's being attempted this year. Not only to protect bottlers in the at sign right to recognize how inextricably linked to our response to climate change and to the way in which we develop an achieve achieve the UN sustainable development goals and you travel the globe extensively in your role as special envoy for African parks. What's been the reaction to the bush fires sized from people that you speak with? Yes I'm I'm currently based in In Switzerland And I think the scale and the intensity of the intensity intensity of these fires has really shocked everyone Discount applies impact the area covered by these. These are the two and a half times the size of Switzerland the country triomphe currently living in and I am receiving messages from people right across the globe every continent concern about the FIS asking me. If my family's a I asked me about what's happening and and the response in house drill is going to deal with say there's been an overwhelming response and not just in terms of expressions concern and goodwill but people are giving their asking. How can I support Australia? How could I contribute to these? Whether it's from relation to the impact on people property or livestock but may given my my job.

Biodiversity must move up international agenda, following Australia bush fires

"Than one hundred. Wildfires are still raging across Australia with record-breaking temperatures and drought contributing to the loss of more than six million actors of land. There is home to some of the most unique plants and animals in the world. Some estimates suggest that around half a billion animals have burned to death in the state of New South Wales alone in an interview with you and use John Scanlon special envoy for the African Parks nonprofit orgnization in former secretary general of seats the UN Becht Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species said that increasing threats to biodiversity must be lift up the international agenda The australian-born Environment and conservation expert spoke to Julia Dean from our UN Information Centre enter in Canberra. These are tragedy tragedy for people. People have lost their lives They property livestock. And it's also uh-huh tragedy for wildlife. We've seen something like eleven million hectares lost and I've figures of Iran. One billion animals have been lost through the fires. And that's an instrument and some of these animals Quite unique habitats. So it's devastating and I think ministers recently coded holded an ecological catastrophe. And I. I think I'd adopt the same terms. Straight is a negative country. It has unique wildlife fan nowhere else on the planet other than the Stra and there are a number of species that have been put at great risk through the scale and extent of these flies on a personal night. Right you are from. And what is your reaction to what specifically happened on. Kangaroo loudon inside personally heartbreaking to see what's happening there entangle die die. I grew up in Adelaide as you said I visited. Kangaroo Island as a child with the family Went on a Ymca camp to Kangaroo Island When I was in legal practice actus I spend a lot of time there and when I was chief executive of Environment Heritage and Aboriginal Affairs obviously the National Parks on the until under our I watch and it's it's devastating to see the scale of the loss on kangaroo island such a beautiful? I mean fantastic community really strong community. They eh EH. Extraordinary wildlife fantastic landscapes beautiful produce to see the scale of the FIS hitting that island. What it's done for people uh property livestock and wildlife is just devastating Koalas in particular? What do you think is the man? Do you have any idea of what the actors in general in ruin is the population of animals. that a big hit so badly. The interesting thing. Koalas is that we introduced to kangaroo island really as a as a safe haven for them and they have. The population is growing significantly in. It's fantastic. It's clemency free population of Kuala a safe zone for Koala and and we hid. They've probably lost half of the population which is terrible if you think Animals dying in the FIS and getting injured through the FIS is and that such scale and the populations taken a huge hit not just On kangaroo island but across other parts of Australia so it's really Put the much more difficult position than than it's ever been before yet. Terrible and do you think there would be any role for the UN or other multilateral institutions institutions to get involved in helping to rebalance the unique flora and fauna of Australia wants the Pfizer at the United Nations is a large organization with many. The different components is united. We have some significant meetings coming up this year there will be the meeting the conference of the parties to the Convention on Biological School Diversity in Kunming in China and at this meeting countries of looking at what sort of by Vesey framework we should have between twenty twenty and twenty thirty thirty. So how should we deal with the loss of biodiversity that we're experiencing what sort of measures should be taken and certainly climate change is a very big part ought to that compensation along with all the other threats to diversity. So I think we have a chance to to recalibrate rethink recognized that at the threats threats to biodiversity including those coming from climate. Change Asa via and you know we have according to recent UN reports million species at risk of extinction over coming decades nights if we don't change course so quickly. That conference gives us an opportunity by globally and in the context of Australia to rethink where we are with biodiversity Are we on the right track. Are we taking the right measures to ensure that we're not losing it and also be the twenty meeting of the conference of the parties to did the comic convention and we'll be looking at the Paris Agreement and nationally determined contributions. There's also an opportunity there to look at. What sort of responses are being taken to climate? I'm a change. Not just in mitigation but also inadaptation and building resilience. which is such a big issue for Australia and other countries as well? How are we going to adapt to changing climate conditions? And just done that diversity has been at the forefront of the climate change discussion. No that's unfortunate. It and biodiversity has not been well enough recognized in the contribution that biodiversity makes in terms of being able to mitigate adapt build resilience to climate change but also the contribution that it makes people's personal health and wellbeing contribution it makes to development into generating people's jobs so we really need to leaked by the up the international agenda. And that's certainly what's being attempted this year. Not only to protect bottlers in the at sign right to recognize how inextricably linked to our response to climate change and to the way in which we develop an achieve achieve the UN sustainable development goals and you travel the globe extensively in your role as special envoy for African parks. What's been the reaction to the bush fires sized from people that you speak with? Yes I'm I'm currently based in In Switzerland And I think the scale and the intensity of the intensity intensity of these fires has really shocked everyone Discount applies impact the area covered by these. These are the two and a half times the size of Switzerland the country triomphe currently living in and I am receiving messages from people right across the globe every continent concern about the FIS asking me. If my family's a I asked me about what's happening and and the response in house drill is going to deal with say there's been an overwhelming response and not just in terms of expressions concern and goodwill but people are giving their asking. How can I support Australia? How could I contribute to these? Whether it's from relation to the impact on people property or livestock but may given my my job. I have a lot of people coming to me saying. How can we help the wildlife? The wildlife recover hat. Can we help injured animals news Be Treated so it's been an overwhelming response From everyone at the not being erected with across across the globe to this this crisis the destroyers being confronting through these bush fires and in your role as looking at things globally as you travel the the strategy bushfires are one part of a crosses in a particular country but there are other crises going on around the world.

What if the self driving car revolution is an office park shuttle from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm molly would everyone is very excited about autonomous honest cars but with every day they feel a little farther away waymo. Alphabet self driving car company is still testing fully autonomous cars as taxis in the phoenix area tesla is putting semi-autonomous features onto its own cars for consumers to buy and some companies like boston-based optimus ride are are thinking the immediate future is a little more contained the startup which yes is named after the transformer is betting on low speed vehicles that carry people around defined geographic areas it is not the sexiest use of autonomous driving tech but it might be more doable optimus ride. I just started a contract. Giving people free rides around the brooklyn navy yard an industrial park in new york city marketplace tech producer stephanie us went to check it out optimus ride vehicles stick out the black six passenger electric automobiles have the word self-driving in all capital letters on the back kind of like when you see a student driver and like student drivers these vehicles still have teachers that ride along to human monitors are in the front seat ready to jump in if needed they drift the passengers as well before everyone has belts meet you in the back demille ezra's tech investor. He's just coming from a meeting at a startup accelerator in the navy yard. He didn't know that self-driving shuttles would be there but he wants to know everything about them third driver. Do you know what technology are of a using in the car. It's laser scanners and cameras that the vehicle uses to sense things like pedestrians and other cars. Oh and it won't go more than fifteen miles per hour that that may be the reason passengers thing. They don't seat belts in the front seat. One of the human minders holds a laptop on the screen. There's something kind of like a heat map or obstacles appear as the the car is seeing them. You'll see on the screen that that spotted that person you see that orange object and we'll probably see that by second ryan chin chen is the c._e._o. And co founder of optimus ride he says you'll see this kind of driverless tech on the street way before you can ride any kind of distance in a fully autonomous car good for example that is if you're able to drive a thomas lii in times square in a snowstorm and drive all the way to harvard square in the boston area. There's no car company in the world world can do that today and will likely take more than ten years and chen says there's a five hundred billion dollar market for autonomous shuttles and what he calls geo fenced areas like college campuses office is parks and airports. Let's test validate. The business model developed the technology and then as we get better. Let's increase the complex. Let's make the gio fence larger. Let's increase the speed. Let's let's go to an air. That's a little bit more urban but it's going to take some time for optimus ride to get rid of their human monitors. Missy cummings is a professor of robotics at duke university. She says machines can't yet see the world the way people do once we've been taught with that red stop sign means we can approximate we can estimate we know what what it means. Even if there's only parts of the stop sign showing driverless cars on the other hand have a hard time improvising when conditions change they will follow the rules and only the rules that you tell them at the navy yard the optimists vehicles are really careful at a four way stop. There's an uncomfortably long pause before the vehicle accelerates. We'll oh stop observed. We see you can see all of the cars that are coming into this intersection and we are predicting what they're gonna do. They doing the same loop over turned over again c._e._o. Ryan says that optimus vehicles will learn the rules really well and like every good student driver. They'll eventually get more confident. That's that's marketplace. Tech producers stephanie us you can see pictures from her ride at marketplace tech dot org and now for some related links which is a little more reading about how the cold reality of self driving cars starting to sink in. It's gonna take a lot longer than we thought. The tech might not actually be the panacea for everything from traffic to the environment to safety that we have been promised all along and let's be honest. That's how technology works. It comes out and it's a little slower a little bug ear and has a lot more unintended consequences than we expect it. I've got a bunch of links to articles on our website for the past past few weeks saying basically the same thing and i'm gonna brag a little bit and say i wrote about this in january twenty eight th there's a link to that piece to on marketplace tech dot org back then. I said the tech was still a little dodgy. The talent to build that tech was really hard to find lawsuits over intellectual property would start to proliferate and the safety not was still kind of an open question. Let alone that we didn't know what driverless cars would really due to the economy or traffic or how they might interact with the millions of people driven cars on on the road and all of that is still true that actually here's some interesting dish on the intellectual property part just in the last week apple and tesla sued former employees for allegedly stealing self driving taxi grits and taking them to chinese competitors and the biggest maker of lighter technology valentine nine sued to chinese companies or allegedly stealing trade secrets as well and that's just one of dozens of lawsuits over self-driving tech you know are that saying we were promised jet packs those might still get here sooner hollywood and that's marketplace tech.

That's his people think twice before they talked to the United States because they know that what the agreed today, may not hold tomorrow. The International Atomic Energy agency said Iran is in compliance with the original nuclear deal. But the EA is also raising questions about new centrifuges in Iran, and the US has accused Iran or its proxies of sabotaging four oil tankers near the Persian Gulf charges. A reef disputes, if the United States decides to declassify some of its intelligence if they show images which some officials say system of cruise missiles being put on small Iranian boats, will you simply dismiss that enough believe it not you see this place? The Persian footed reason. It's next was, we have the right to defend. Just imagine if it on to come to California over to come to Florida coast. How do you feed? How would you treat that these ships are located very close to our voters? We have the right to put whatever missiles, we to put on you've talked about esscalation, and that there would be Dana.

Europe's changing political landscape

"Voters, go to the polls over the next three days to select members of the European parliament in Strasbourg members of our Brussels bureau, discuss why these elections matter, and how they are likely to affect the upcoming appointment of senior officials. It's does day, which means the first voters in the Netherlands, UK are heading off to the ballot boxes. And we must be having votes across the twenty eight Member States for the next three days and on Sunday, we'll get the results. Alex, jim. What are we expecting tappan on Sunday? How is this all going to work, this vast Eurovision type exercise of democracy? It is fast. It's across so many countries, so many political cultures that it will take quite a long time, actually for the results to shake out even after the results come in a lot of these political alliances that we have in Europe, the center ride the centre-left, the liberals, the greens, the conservatives to the right of that the far-left all projects emotion. So they'll keep home trying to build alliances steel parties in the weeks after the election to so we weren't necessarily get a clear snapshot, but you'll have. An idea on the night of a what's happened to the mainstream of pro. European politics, since director, elections, started in nineteen seventy nine there's roughly bean a majority for the center. Right. And center, left combined pro EU parties used to make up roughly, seventy five percents of the parliament, this time at least is that into shrink to a degree that makes it much more difficult for the center to operate in Brussels, is the first question. Secondly. Is that going to be because populist anti EU parties have done a little better could we end up in a situation where France Italy? Poland the UK have the top parties as either very euro skeptic, all all-star to the entire project. And how does the EU deal with that? Those are the two main things and. And it feeds into this massive haggle, we're going to start in the immediate aftermath to fill all top EU jobs that are becoming vacant this year. Kim, we have had weeks and weeks of projections and forecasts from national countries about polling. Do we already have a sense of who the big winners will be on the night, regardless of some of the nuances of the margins? We can tell the people who are going to be celebrating on Sunday night already, as one of the things this fascinating unique about the European elections. Is that we can see straightaway how individual parties have done on the nights? But then these unusual parties have to find a way to fit into political groups political families within the politics self, and that's going to be a convicting exercise with obese a highly going on. But we will clearly have some national winners newses unbutton includes when Europe's most prominent politicians, one of the things will discover on Sunday is, whether you're probably Kamar, political party and president of annual Macron has finished. First place or whether it's the fall Russell on us. United Marie lapenne those finished in first place. That's an issue, which has ramifications for the formation of the European parliament. And what happens in the coming years of you policy-making, but it also has really big domestic front vacations for my crime FRANZ. I mean Jared just from Boise in the polling so far. We know we're gonna have situation where we're going to have more fragmented parliament where both the main center left group associates Democrats on the made center, right? Group, you're People's Party are going to be in a weakened position compared to now. The question is how we can under who is really good to be the one who reads the benefits can maybe going to the UK, it seems like for is probably going to emerge victorious. Whatever happens given the sort of bounce storming need. He has, but they could be some smaller winners like the lib Dem's who sort of come out of nowhere an identity. And I guess, in terms of the parliament, they will help out people like I knew Macron, because they'll say in his group despite the French president's sort of reluctance to keeping the Brits in. So there's elements. Surprises here. What are the sort of blacks meant could we foresee? What if you look at the polling at the moment, it's been reasonably steady because it's a massive aggregates of lots of political battles going on the EP are ahead this, the centre-right group, but not by much. The social democrat group sent to left has benefited from the u k still taking part, they get a lot of labor MP's that making ground in countries like Spain that coming closer to the EP. It's within something like twenty seats and if they can do a little bit better. They could complex to knocking the EP off the top spot, which they've held since nine thousand nine the liberals are expanding Emmanuel Macron, the French president is planning to make some kind of a lion's with them to maybe change the name change look at the potty up put like a hundred seats and then you have a lot of snow. Smaller groups in the mid tier, the published led group of conservatives, the greens, the fall left in the forty to sixty range, and then you've got two more far right groups, which may be in the fifty range or plus now if you look at old past European elections, and what happens between the polling and the results will tends to happen is governed parties to worse-than-expected than in the polls, smaller parties do better than expected. The centre-left do worse than expected, and the populace do better, the anti EU parties do better. So feed that in and actually I think you see kind of bunching of all the groups with probably the EP still there'll thereabouts is the top party, which is the first take away from this as they move into this kind of discussion about what happens with the jobs. Why does the cultivation of the parliament matter? For the jobs for somebody on the outside. How does this get divvied up on the first one and the probably the one all looking as European Commission? President job is up person gained emerged from some of the four or five spits and candidates. We've seen already. Situation where among different political groups in the parliament has not actually any agreement of wall process should be used to appoint the president of the European Commission. We have a situation where the sense right, the European People's policy has thrown his weight behind this system called the lead candidate Spitz and conduct system where basically that group has champion candidate in this case selection. It suggestions Manfred. Vaber veiled, perspective, new cushion, president the socialists and Democrats, they've also bought into that system, there need candidate is France Timmermans, but other political groups in the parliament are much less keen on national leaders in the European Union who are the ones who coast, chiefly should go and find a candidate B commission president, that also opposed to this will all need to be reviewed in the light of the results. And what happened already on Monday when political leaders in the parliament meet and pour over this and basically, in a way mount vaber in fronts. Tunes face will be decided at the ballot box. But also at that meeting on Monday, so on keys. Okay. We have a day with will meet in the morning, and the European Council would meet in the evening. Is that the day when we actually will get some clarity or is this actually good drag on for a long, while yet, maybe we'll get a stalemate other African define that as clarity, but you could have a situation where enough of the political parties, a stand up and say, look, we're not fighting anyone put a spits in Candida. So maybe you could have the center right the center, left the greens, and that's enough over block to make sure that you couldn't nominate someone else who didn't run as a lead candidate in this election because they wouldn't be able to get a majority in the parliament's going to blocking minority simile on the European Council side, you could have eight ten twelve leaders who say enough of this within into this S and Canada idea. We don't like Manfred vaber all fronts Timmermans will have a merges in that top spot, and we're unwilling to do so you can have a situation where the two institutions. That have kind of equal Sade some degree in who, eventually emerges the leaders are supposed to nominate some on the parliament approve, but it could be in a situation that birthday look with stuck with a blocking minority that we can't bring together, and that could mean we're in for a much longer process than people think the, the hopes of getting a whole package together in June might be a little bit to Optimus tick, or you could be in a situation where they look and think, well going to block you minority in parliament, but they can't get a majority for this bits and confidante and the spits dot com. Get a majority in the cancel, so maybe we need to move on. And that's the real test of those couple of days, a lot spends on how those two main maltings before those two main political families performing the election, right? I mean, that's in a way, the simplicity of the system is really helpful particularly well even if they finish the largest group thought does automatically Herdman favors legitimacy. It makes it harder for DP as. A political lines to assert, the commission president and determine socialists, really at some say, I mean, should case, the democratic exercise while the vote is due on Sunday. Really does not coming to put you both on the spot, Jim who's your candidate? Who's your name for the European Commission? President. What's your hunch, Christine ago onyx I think marketer might make it. Okay. So two candidates nor promise permission to candidates. None of whom are running formally or informally for this job have been called by the F T in all honesty. The truth is that woman, and we barely ever had a Dutch. Gone gone. Rogue names, but the truth probably is the most people around this town, asking the same question and coming up with five or six differences. We don't really know yet.

"Hello. And welcome to the intelligence on a communist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. In the Suhel vast swath of land that stretches across the African continent. There's a worrying trend jihadists of several stripes growing in number and in influence, we tag along with an international training exercise aimed at preparing African forces contained a threat. And you might think that the public's interest in the world's changing climate has been on a steady rise you'd be wrong, a dive into data about online searches reveals that climate concern comes and goes. First up though. Over the past six months, a pessimistic picture of the world economy has been emerging speaking at the US chamber of commerce last week Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund issued a warning the global economy is at a delicate moment. Only two years ago. Seventy five percent of the global economy experienced an upswing. So it was a synchronized growth acceleration for this year. We expect not seventy five but seventy percent of the global economy to experience a slowdown in growth. Exactly the opposite of what we had. The IMF later today. We'll be publishing its forecast for the year. Simon Cox are emerging markets editor based in Hong Kong. We already know little bit about it from a speech Christine Lagarde gave she pointed out that they'll be cutting their forecast. They had expected back in January world economy to grow by about three and a half percent sheer. So it sounds like they're going to shave some off that forecast. However, she did emphasize the left is not expect a recession this year. So it's a slow down and one that should autumn out by about mid year in nephew. And why are we seeing this Loda? So the slowdowns quite broadly based the guard pointed out that a variety of countries have slowed down from last year. China has been trying to slow the growth of credit for some time. Now, there's also been of course, this trade will trade tensions between China in America have damaged sentiment. More broadly earlier in two thousand eighteen we saw the Federal Reserve raising interest rates which caused a of problems for variety of emerging economies and euro-zone to seems. Perennially weak takes very little seems to slow its momentum. So order these things happening together have added up to a slight gloomier outlook the me had props year ago, and is any one of those factors dominant in this lowdown. So the trade war has attracted most of the headlines. I think the feds raising interest rates and China's efforts to curb leverage, probably more important. Although it has to be said the trade war has inflicted greater damage on sentiment than I would have expected. It's not so much the practical concrete effect of the tariffs. It's more this notion that two of the world's biggest economists consi I and no longer working in concert to try and keep the economy going and with this downturn than in prospect, what can policymakers around the world due to to get ready to make his already taken some measures. And most importantly, the fed has signaled that it won't be raising interest rates again anytime soon, I think that pose an interest rates has been quite bawdy welcomed by financial markets. And I think it came just. In time a little bit too late. And also China has also turned attention away from curbing leverage towards shoring up growth, and in the past China's been quite effective in reviving demand when it decides to so those both measures that policymakers have already taken and then looking more broadly with always very much welcome Germany's splurging bit. Why would that be such a singularly helpful factor to mini vans, quite tight public finances? It's obviously the biggest economy in the zone surrounded by much weaker economies that would benefit greatly from the spillovers of higher German spending. So the one Konami that's really in a position to spend more refuses to and that leaves its neighbors who aren't really in a position to spend more having to do so to try and up to mind in their own conham is so euro-zone as a whole exports demand weakness to the rest of the world when it really should be pulling its weight. So you mentioned one of the big factors here is fed sort of pausing in its rate increases is their case for a cut. I think possibly one of the perennial worries about this recovery is the central banks have not yet been able to quote, unquote, normalize monetary policy that they haven't been able to raise interest rates to what historically would have been more normal levels that matters in particular if there's a downturn because impasse recessions central banks had to cut interest rates really quite severely in order to offset recessionary impulses. And they sent me don't have room to do that anymore. Now the best insurance policy against having to cut heavily is to cut a little early. And so there's perhaps a case for the fed to cut even if that results in a little bit too easy. The damage that would do is very little in comparison with the damage of cutting too late that is US might of heat a little bit might have a little bit above target inflation something that really would concern. Nobody very much at all. So there is perhaps a case for the fed to be preemptive. The only nuance is that if the fed now did that would be seen as a bit of a sign of panic. Because they seem to be while the set against doing that absolutely have to so in the the worry with growth forecast that look like this one will is that we're headed for kind of another global recession. How do you see things playing out this time give us give us cause for optimism? So there are few signs that quote has bottomed out actually undulated number from China wasn't too bad German industrial production was okay, the US labor market still looks reasonably robust, although earnings growth has been a bit disappointing. So we have a number of lax from the data just getting numbers for March. Now, the lag in the processes, right? So it'll of prepared this report using data that might now be several weeks old, and as Christina guide said in speech, economic weather is very unsettled. It's changeable, and so it's possible. That's hope that the slowdown has already finished and seeing the first signs of stabilization, perhaps even a modest uptick in growth. So as as you say things are unsettled if things are. Actually on the up, and perhaps we haven't you know, crunched the numbers yet for how much it's on the up what might threaten that other whole variety thinks that could still destabilise growth, we've never really been able to get back to a fully healthy economy that's growing at its full potential without a lot of help from monetary policy. So you can think of I don't know the disruption from Brexit would obviously be obvious danger signed seven Newell of trade tensions. It's remarkable. How Optimus dick snatcher markets are about to deal between China and Trump, and yet we've been hearing that as a deal imminent for quite long while now without it actually happening. So there are a number of risks years ago. Christine Lagarde actually coined this phrase, the new mediocre, it was her take on the more common phrase, the new normal and her point was that you global growth was not as often as it had been Patou still pretty disappointing by historical standards, looking back over ten or twenty years. And I think that's where we're at. You know, the good is never that. Good. Hopefully, the bad won't be awful. Really stuck in this new mediocre right somewhere between cautious optimism and get used to it. That's right. Simon. Thanks very much for your time. It's It's my. my pleasure.

"About six months ago, we launched a meet up called marketers non ass- and a point of marketers Optimus is for us as marketers to get other marketers together into a room to talk about marketing every single meet up is about an hour and a half long stars with networking, and then we have a lightning talk by someone from our staff, usually it's mere Kevin. And then we haven't invited feature speaker talking about something cool and interesting that they did that has to do with marketing we started that in our backyard in downtown Norfolk, and it was very successful raft about we had about fifty people show up for the first meet up and we've been doing it ever since. And we were very proud of what we had done. And we thought it was great and whatnot. But what we realized that we were catering to a small population. And population was people that were willing to drive to that. Vet location, and there's a whole nother section of our region, which is called the peninsula, which is Newport News and Hampton area, there's a body of water between where we are. And where they are. And so people don't like to go through the tunnel and over the bridges and all that crap. And so they just don't and especially now during the workday unless they have to. So what we realize is that we want to become a dominant force in this market and this market. Unfortunately, it's physically separated into two distinct regions. So we had a decision make if we want to be a dominant force. And that means getting marketers to know who we are. We could either try to get them to come out to our event and overcome this geographic barrier, or we could go where the opportunity is. And so that's exactly what we did. We decided even though it was a literally twice as much work for us. We're going to stand up a second meet up over there. All right. So now we are running to. Meet ups per month, one here, not backyard one over there on the peninsula. Right. And actually that was wrong. We were running to we decided to add a third one as well because we are doing work in Orlando. And so basically anywhere that we go we're going to bring this with us because the great marketing tool for us. It's a great way to find the people who we want to interact with and get to know them. And hopefully, they'll like us as well. And then that will lead to

"Clock two minutes to midnight. They say, well, we're gonna keep it there because of well nuclear weapons, of course, but global warming and also fake news. And I shook my head. I'm gonna you kidding me. That's the best. They can do of course, Jerry Brown's on the board. So we're gonna hear about climate change climate changes everything. And you know, it's it's social engineering and geo engineering that are a danger. But I don't know if it's enough to keep the clock in two minutes to bid there's something puts the clock. All wait, a midnight pro-life care in that is. Optimus weapons and swarm intelligence to things that, you know, once again, you know, if you're listening to this program tonight, you're way ahead of the group. You're way ahead of class. It's like, you know, if they could give a college education in ground zero you're way ahead of the class. I mean, there's been a lot of speculation. We've even speculated about the dangers of AI, but it's primarily focused on how AI we'll take what your job. We've already talked about the robot rebellion. Okay. We've talked about how robots are going to replace some of you may even maybe me, I am a robot. You're listening to ground zero. I don't know. Does he? You are a technocrat who has a clock that you want to use for your political footballing. That's great. It's about as much worth as groundhog is a groundhog Punxsutawney Phil on groundhog day, which by the way is in two days. But you always had this discussion. Amongst tech leaders. Those were you know. Really interested in how to use this tech in government and journalists talk about artificial intelligence all the time. But here we are into the very very deep dark secret of autonomous weapons systems. And what could transpire if technology falls into the hands of a rogue state, a terrorist organization or a group on social media that is being somehow manipulated by swarm intelligence or call new intelligent. There's a lot of debates going on about the moral and legal implications about Thomas weapons, there should be more debate on whether or not they could use swarming zoo intelligence to go beyond the creative field because they're saying, oh, it's so great. You put people in groups and have the collective high minded collected high mind does this and this and this and this, but what they don't talk about is how it can enable groups to also plot terrorist attacks. And then we have a number of reasons to actually kick back and say, wait a minute. Why are we ignoring? Why why is the bulletin of atomic scientists this type of technology, but they're saying that the dangers of the world now are being normalized and saying that climate change nuclear wars normalized. And so that's why they kept the clock in two minutes to midnight. And they were saying also that this is the time. We're we're probably in the darkest days some somewhat similar to the darkest days of the Cold War. And I wondered about that. I thought about that. I pondered about that. And I thought to myself. Well, okay. There are existential threats that they're not talking about that are certainly threats that may be the dangers are not going to be said about it. Because the technocrats just like they did with the bomb. They dropped the bomb on Hiroshima, and they dropped the Nagasaki. And then they created the clock to warn people. Oh, we don't wanna go there. Again. Do we? And they don't want to remind people. There are determining factors here. Whether or not we're going to be seeing autonomous robots or even people who are interfaced with robots being the ones to push the button. When the signal comes to push the button. You say, oh, we can rely on robots to think we won't have ourselves. A another doomsday close doomsday scenario like we did back on January twenty fifth of nineteen ninety-five where they almost were Russia almost fired on the United States because of some tests that was going on your the Arctic circle. So they're saying, well, I think that would be more reliable to have. I run the show. But you know, we need up the power. We need to be able to say, okay, we give up. We want five G. We give up we want you to want. You to fry our brains because our brains are going to be interfacing with computers anyway. So let's just took in. We you're talking about a doomsday clock. I think you should include a lot of things, and I think when the technocrats decide they're gonna push the issues of global warming and fake news. They ignore other things like generational cycles that influence human activity. We're in a time of excitability, we're at time of hysteria. We need to consider that there's a lack of unity amongst the bass swarm intelligence in a in a time where there's a lack of unity. We'll have a lot of people. Plotting to carry out all kinds of horrible things using swarm intelligence. History has shown that you know, when we when we sit here, and we don't look at the generational patterns. When we don't see the patterns, we end up either destroying ourselves. We ended up making friendships with the groups that become dangerous. Blowback stores. I mean, we've been exposed to mass riots against globalist tyranny. The media's ignoring it on purpose because they don't want to give us any ideas about how there's a greater enemy out there. Besides. You know ourselves. And so at a time. When the of civilization seems to be more uncertain than ever. As we're being driven towards pessimism. And even despair a turning point is is in the making a turning point John bar hinge, or whatever you wanna call it needs to be considered. We're going to be going down a road that. Is either the road lot less traveled? The point of least resistance, or at least we're going to be we could very well be on a road. We've never even seen before. Lou. We've never traveled down before. So we see the increase of technology and how we see in recent decades. It's actually shorten our time. To be social with one another even our families. We even families text one another in the same house. And we were all captivated and controlled. And we're having those seeds of doubt in those seeds of being an adversary. That's all being planted into the algorithm scale. And the Chinese have taken some of this information, and they've twisted it created self destruct algorithm. Were they push it into something called swarm intelligence, where the mind the mind or whatever you wanna call it can plot to be the ones. To carry out these these these acts of terror these acts of murder, and and not only that sometimes they're under the control of the mind control, and they can't do anything. Because if they do something that isn't what the computer wants, or what the government wants or whomever, the controller is then they ended up getting taken out by a by a drone an autonomous drone that doesn't doesn't question orders. Everything done by remote control, everything done by remote control. And this raises new concerns about who are what will be capable of pushing the button that would initiate nuclear war. The kill switch either. It'd be human. Who's interface with artificial intelligence? Or will be by artificial intelligence. It sounds something like a sky net that we see in the Terminator films where one day the robots all rise up when they say we're going to kill you. We don't want you anymore. And they basically say we need to wipe out the humans because they are a pain in our sides. So.

"Today. Liberty Media is the parent company of Sirius XM and Sirius XM today acquired Pandora, the music streaming service, which also streams podcasts for three point, five billion dollars in stock. Wow. So they that's kind of like in the media space, if direct TV were to buy who or something three point, five billion or million billion with a b.. Well, man, that's incredible. So just when you thought like satellite radio is over, you know, because of all the internet in streaming stuff like they come out like, where did they get the cash from? Well, that's why it's all stock. I don't even know. It's like a stock swap aquisition. So who knows how the deal is structured, but that's, that's their hedge, I guess, against satellite and they can be satellite or or, you know, just streaming terrestrial or I don't even. Oh, how Dora goes across, but there you go. That's a quick little hit on the news of the media space, and I think Audio's media just like anything else for sure. We're not on Pandora. I think we should get on Pandora now. Can we get them Pandora? Yeah, they have podcast. We just got on. We just got on iheartradio last week, so we need to add a little logo to our website and get that up and running there too. Well, I did put iheart on the website. Oh, you did? Yeah, I did. I win. I don't know a couple days ago. Okay. So our first movie the week is Bumblebee. Yeah, let's get into that really quick. We don't have to do a lot because we did cover the teaser back number of episodes ago. I don't remember which episode I forgot to look it up. Maybe you can find it while I sit there and chat. Okay. So I have a couple of things one. And you've been watching a lot of transform movies lately with your kids? Yes. Who's the deep sounding voice over guy that tells bub Bumblebee to protect the earth into people Optimus prime. Oh, that's Optimus prime. Okay, Optimus prime. Yeah. Got it. Okay. Number two, if Bumblebee were never purchased by the girl, would he have stayed dormant throughout this whole leg battle that everyone's looking for him now because spike would have gotten him. Okay. So he's still would've come alive? I think so. Okay. Number three. A beetle. Volkswagen bug like, say, I don't know what exact year he is, but let's say a seven in nineteen seventy Volkswagen bug. I'll even call them. The super beetle has about a sixty horsepower motor and it's not very big rate. So he's fighting like FA teens in all these old cars and all this stuff that's way bigger than he is. But like he's kicking all the other asses like could a bug really, right. Do that to like a dodge charger? No, no, to Bumblebee could. Okay. Which brings me to number four if he's a Beadle why is he then? Bumblebee is a wisely a beetle. Yeah, I don't know. Let's okay. Let's not. Let's not over think that one. Okay. Oh,
