"Remember when the pandemic started, you know we're all getting used to staying at home. Some people even joked about US experiencing baby boom and nine months. Well turns out we just might be in the midst of baby boom right now, one taking shape in the waters puget sound. Yes. There is a new calf swimming around and more maybe on the way soon, joining us now to talk more about this Howard Garrett Co founder and board president of the Orca Network Howard thank you for your time. Thank you for having me. All this baby talk really got going earlier this month. That's not only when we saw the new calf swimming around but there was a super potty vent. So what happened? What is that about? It was really quite remarkable. The big news was the new baby, of course, thirty, five new baby j fifty seven born looking very healthy and robust, and having a very active day with mom and the family out there and. Given what we saw with Jay thirty five or televise. We've known her exactly two years ago carrying around her calf that had died at birth for seventeen days. A thousand miles impose called tour of grief that woke up. So many people to the fact that these Wales are having reproductive problems which result from lack of sufficient nutrition Food Chinook Salmon? And that day on September fifth. was really remarkable. It didn't get started till early afternoon. J.. POD had been up in Georgia straight for five days. They came down that day were discovered midday out in Harrow street straight onto few can north of the Olympic peninsula. And KML PODS which had not been seen or heard from since July. Came in from the West and they somehow all met up, they seem to have had a prearranged meeting time and place. And came in and had a what is called super pod where they mix and mingle and are very vocal above and below the water different pods mixed together is like a well, a greeting ceremony is also called and it was just a very exciting day for everybody to to watch from all different quarters. And then that night it went on into the night they partied into the night and then the next morning they were gone, they had left gone out west out to see. So they were not there for a they were there to socialize. Okay. On the occasion of the new baby apparently. Okay. So with that is that a natural response for these whales when there is a new baby to gathering these super proponents? It's been seen before not every time. So they seem to have some kind of communication system this hard to imagine because they were hundred miles apart in around several islands you know. So out of Acoustic Range, but somehow were able to meet in that location at that time on the day of the birth of the new baby. So it's it's quite a remarkable sequence of events. Absolutely. Everyone's just so happy about this and. I think about the whale just station period it's eighteen months I will never complain again about. Right, but it's GonNa be a little while before we know if any new pregnancies may have come from the super potty venture were just talking about. That doesn't necessarily mean another calf or two won't show up later this year what we know about other pregnancies well, that is true and there are two others that are known to be pregnant teaser from grown studies are able to look the body shape and they can detect a pregnancy. It's well along six months or so. and. You're right about how super potty vince tend to be when the pregnancies begin. That's when the pods mixed and they tend to mate across pods. Though the maximum genetic distance between them because all of the meeting has done within this community, which is now down to well seventy three with new calf. So this potential baby boom we're looking at before the end of the year, it could help the population overall specifically J. Pied or are you still kind of like you said, just we're we're we're still just holding onto to hope and optimism right now. Well, you know it's a blessed event. It is definitely a good step or Wrigley. Hope, it's a female female early. You know they bring forth new calves. So we hope that disappear male who will grow up and contribute to the population. but that's still only one this year and there were two in January two new verse in January of two, thousand nineteen. So that's three berths in two years basically, and that is not enough. There really should be two or three new births a year to begin to rebuild the population they should be about well, you know a healthy population would be one, hundred and fifty, two, hundred or so and seventy three. So they've got a long way to go. Well, how are Tele and baby faring? Well, from all the visual observations they both look very good. In fact, all of the population did look good. There were no other losses. They were all surveyed documented photo ID and they all had good buddy conditions. So it seems that they are finding something to eat out there. There must be enough Chinook, coming down the coast to the Columbia River other rivers that they're able to pick off and so don't know for sure what they're eating, but it's probably And steelhead that are out there on the coast. Just a bright spot that we all need right now given these trying times. All Right Howard, Garrett Co founder, and board president of the ORCA network.

"Hey Everyone Danielle. Here I'm excited to get into this episode with our guest and curly will be back next week today Monica royer joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the founder and CEO of Monica Andy An organic baby and children's clothing company. Monica had the idea to launch her company literally from the hospital after she gave birth. Who've with the mission of being the most thoughtful children's brand ever created and as we'll get into entrepreneurship definitely runs in her family Monica. Thank you for joining us today welcomed skin from the couch Danielle. Thank you so much for having me. I'm super excited to be here. Thank you. So I just WanNa say that like literally I think one of the days after I had told our team that I. Was Pregnant I had a call with Monica and I was like only slightly panicked about the fact that I was maybe a first time mom and really had no clue what I was doing and was like everyone keeps telling me I need a lay at and I don't even know what that is and Google that and Monica was like such a calming presence and literally knows this case inside a now. Thank you so much what we're is really excited to welcome people into Motherhood, in new, parenthood. So congratulations to you. Thank you. So let's start with an easy question scam your resume. To actually take back to what you can't see on link to in, which is that I came from a very hardworking family and so at the age of twelve, my mom was the manager, the ultrasound department at Good Samaritan. Hospital in Downers Grove and she's like you're gonNA start volunteering. So she went an air sign me up I was working at the front desk outpatient registration and that at fourteen she was like job permit time. So we went I started stocking the shelves at now very defunct retail store of which I. Can't even remember the name but work ethic with something was really important to my parents and so I spent all the time before I graduated from college with all of my summer jobs in the hospital. So physical therapy like you name it I worked all around the hospital when University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana graduated and I immediately got a job in the pharmaceutical industry. So I spent the first decade doing absolutely nothing related to what I'm currently doing but I worked at both Pfizer and Novartis for that decade which was. Very different from currently in that I launched. Monica. Nandy officially in July of twenty fourteen. So now this is my new baby and what I've been most recently working on what's something that we can't Google about you or look up on Lincoln I originally wanted to be a marine biologist. nine or ten old I would have told you wanted to be a marine biologist terrified of the ocean look at seeing but being in it. So that was sort of a non starter, the marine biology career, but I remained totally obsessed with like orcas. Great White Sharks in my very favorite place to travel as the San Juan islands outside of Seattle, marine, biologist, and pharmaceutical industry. This is all very, very interesting. So we're GONNA get into your family. And the support system that you've built around you. But I when I was talking to you a few weeks ago, you were talking about your mom and how her story had such an impact on you tell us about what it was like growing up in your house. What kind of expectations were there? Yeah. So my mom is an immigrant from India. She moved here from India's her dad was dying of Emphysema and some money home when she was nineteen. Years old as I have always a revered both of my parents Andy I always say that will never win the lottery because we did the first time by the parents that we got. So a massive amount of respect for both of them. But my mom, there was something about the family that she came from her family was very matriarchal in in a society in India that was much the opposite in. So my grandfather had nine children altogether the first. Five of which were girls as in India, like at that time most people wanted boys but my grandfather really cherish having girls in he educated each of them like they were boys and so when my mom came here, she came here on sheer well of the education that she had received and so education was of the utmost importance specifically for my mom mom was the only person in her family to marry outside of her Indian cultures or a dad is. Know his ancestors from European background and so my brother and I were so close growing up because we were so different from everybody else we were between world instead of fitting into any world in particular and so I think that unique experience really shaped the adults that we became.

"Don't think I did notice that allow these attacks are happening in the streets of Gibraltar Matt Spit on Real Gibraltar. Kick for the past few the past few weeks Yeah. There's an incident that occurred in. July of this year when one Victoria Morris was on the crew of a ship that's about forty six feet in length she was in Spain and nine killer whales nine orca surrounded the boat. The the started ramming the whole. So this almost seems like I premeditated planned thing they workers are big right so this is not like. Style like a bunch of guppies slapping and gets the whole or something when they ran this thing, they were able to spin the boat, a hundred and eighty degrees. It disabled the engine. Insane. What is the beef here? Sorry to keep harping on this movie but I found a poster that might clear this up for us. It says Orca, the killer whale, the killer whale is one of the most intelligent creatures in the universe. Incredibly he's the only animal other than man who kills for revenge. He has one mate, and if she is harmed by man, he will hunt down that person with a relentless terrible vengeance across seas across time across all obstacles, a lot of text. To be on a movie poster but how could all all of these whales have been collectively wronged by man fascinating stuff? Are there any other developments? Well, here's the thing that pod focused its attacks for more than an hour and the crew was getting the life raft ready. They were on the radio screaming ORCA attack and they were preparing to abandon the ship. They thought that the ORCAS would be able to capsize the boat and it's normal for Orcas to interact with human vessels. One person says you know sometimes they'll bite the rudder of a ship and they'll get dragged behind it as a game. Right? These are very highly intelligent highly social mammals but this ramming. The experts appears to indicate some deep form of stress.

"The sound of a super pod underwater is the most joyful noise you can imagine and they had a super pod. On on the same day. So who knows maybe they were celebrating the birth this is all such good news and. I think realistically speaking, these are challenging months though coming up for these. This is still an endangered species. Well, this is so true. You Know Seventy to Wales is not a lot of whales. Now we want to be super optimistic. We'll go ahead and count this new one and save seventy three but you know it's typically not even a fair game two counties babies for at least a year. But these whales you know let's never count them out. This is a tough animal is not some crybaby species they've been around as a species for six million years there in every single ocean of the world. They are the top Predator top Predator everywhere they live. All they need is the only thing they have ever needed, which is enough Chinook salmon to be fed the the species of salmon at this time of year is overwhelmingly Chinook. But that will change. They're going to start eating more coho as a the season changes and then lucky. Yes. They'll start coming into central puget sound in wintertime to get chum. Yeah. What does the fall and winter? Look like for these ORCA, right. So that is always the hungriest time for them. That can be a lean time in a dangerous time for the whales that that are J. pod especially but also occasionally they'll. They'll actually come all the way into central puget sound chase chum, and that's when we get to see them and I mean who else has got that right with the southern resident or? Swimming through downtown. This is this is the thing that I think really keeps a lot of people motivated to fight for this species. That is just so incredibly special. You know we all have a piece of this. We need to take care of these whales by first of all giving them space keeping the water quiet don't crowd them don't go near them and sport boats and. Mess around and make a lot of noise. So they can't find their food. They. Really need a lot of space right now especially with this youngster with the pregnancies now, Linda I think I want to end kind of where we ended the last time. We talked a little bit about the survivability of this calf and where we are in terms of our ability for hope right now. I like to think that this little calf is a sign of hope but also a lovely ambassador for Orca right now and a smart pr person might seize on this to draw attention to these creatures. You know I couldn't agree more. Let's let's think about it this way we can all be godparents to this little baby. I mean the idea that it takes a village that that works for ORCA babies to it. My thought about Pella ever since her tragic summer of two thousand eighteen is, may her next calf live? Well, here's the baby. So let's all have a stake in that. This baby will survive and thrive, and hopefully have lots more young ones to frolic with and I and I really do love the way you put that that she's an ambassador. This little calf can do big things for the survival of Orcas if we can all look to this little whale and and remember that they're counting on us. Yeah for now. Look at something. Lovely look at something. Lovely. And playful and beautiful and innocent and wild. I mean it's just such a gift.

"She wants voters who support a recall to know. They aren't breaking any rules by signing her petition later she said I'm in a cease and desist letter. And some good news out of West Seattle sort of turns out there might be affixed for that cracked bridge. After all, it would take two years but if it works Seattle, transportation managers are hoping to squeeze another fifteen years out of the bridge. Nobody is ruling out demolition and replacement yet either. Every new calf is exciting for the southern resident ORCAS, but calf j fifty seven is particularly special. The very big baby was born over Memorial Day weekend and it's mother is tele-. The. ORCA MOM who carried her dead calf over a thousand miles two years ago. Seattle Times Environment reporter Linda makes was on the breaking news desk covering fires, but took the time to talk with us. You may hear her notifications going off during our conversation. So last time we talked we knew that J thirty five was pregnant and we expected to be checking in with you about how well she was doing because we kind of left it that it was not a great shot for for a full term birth but now we have a calf. It's really just so incredible. I think we're all we're taking a little bit by surprise I mean, let's face it about two thirds of the pregnancies for the southern resident Orcas don't work out. They don't come to term at all and I'll also just brace you for the fact that really they're Taliban rate for new babies is about forty percent more? Oh so you know our our little youngster here, J. fifty-seven does face uphill odds. But nonetheless, he she we don't know yet is here the estimation is the saw the capitalist born on September fourth and it does Heaven Name J Fifty-seven isn't that just a tender? Lovely creed. I think we have to have a contest and no, I will not accept cracking. A good idea. Linda. Crack is taken anyway right now I think I just WanNa take a moment truly to recognize in this super dark time what a wonderful ray of light this is something to truly celebrate. I couldn't agree more and it's just such an innocent little burst of joy to see that baby whale, the orcas one, their brand new to the world they they really do look different takes about twenty four hours for their little thin to stand up which I can't even stand how cute that is And their coloration is different when their newborns, you know the the patches that are usually white on the adults are sort of peachy color they. They don't get that white black stark contrast going for a little while and. But they are big honestly I mean they look tiny to their six ton mother but I mean, this is a three hundred, pound six foot long calf and they about ready to rip their swimming. There is or rope been, and of course, they're mammals. So their nursing and their nursing this really really rich high-fat milk and you know it is actually a particularly sensitive time for Tele because she's gotta keep this calf fed and that means she needs a lot of fish. So, Tele is pretty busy right now raising two caps or is the second one calf is the older ones still considered a calf. The. Second One's ten years old at this point. So It's it's a youngster and they stick together. That's remarkable thing about these orca families you know they never disperse that's very unusual in the animal world they stick together for life both the males and the females stay with their mothers life long I. I find this very impressive. I mean most human families after a long holiday weekend or really ready to write. These days, relatives and fish. These guys going lifelong. It's it's really remarkable to me. I did want to talk a little bit about how the pod response to a birth because this is one of the things about that I find. So fascinating is is how incredibly familiar they are with each other familial. This is a really beautiful aspect of ORCA society, and that really is the right way to think about these these families, the really our societies of great antiquity and they pass on culture mother-to-calf generation to generation. So one of the very first things that's happening is a whole lot of learning and a lot of caretaking. There's a lot of babysitting that goes on, but the other aunties and and MOMS and the pod and lot of food sharing that's happening to make sure that the calf is provisioned in the telekomas provisions. And what are the most hopeful joyful things that I heard over the last couple of days from some of the scientists who have been out there with the southern residents is they're looking really good as a matter of fact, kind of more like the old days J. pod was. For much of the summer finally just recently came into their summer foraging grounds of the San Juan Islands and they were all there. You know the family's role there they were. socializing splashing and having fun and goofing off and fooling around, and you know that's a good sign it. It's not a good sign when they're super spread out not really together. They're working their their fins off to try to find some fish. You know that that's a sign of. Being under stress trying to find enough Chinook salmon their favorite foods eat but Ken BALCON with the Center for whale refer research. He reported the first Super Pod that's been seen in a long time in these waters. Now Super Pa that that's just a straight up carnival. That's one jake anl finally get together when they've been apart and they're different foraging areas and they just they play party they you should hear.

"We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place. So you see things like Bald Eagles nesting next to satellite dishes in busy parking lots. Big. Ravens Beg for food next to cold press coffeeshops commuters hop on ferry boats here like people in other towns take the train or the car. On these trips they can sometimes spot the southern resident orcas milling about but a lot of the time the orchestra framed by ferry boats or container ships. The area's ports are growing along with the population. In twenty eighteen Porta Vancouver ship activity reached a record high and the port is undergoing numerous expansions. Increased. Commercial ship traffic on top of recreational boat activity is one of the biggest threats facing the whales that live here. This traffic causes numerous problems ships pollute the water, and they're loud under the waves. As we're about to find out the ocean is getting crowded and noisy, and it's negatively impacting the whales. Dr Lance Barrett Lennard is the director of the Marine Mammal Research Program at the Vancouver Aquarium. There's also a lot of heavy vessel traffic that comes in some of the going to the port of Vancouver some of the going to the port of Seattle unfortunately both both major west coast ports. have their roots running through. Southern Resident Critical Habitat. But the obvious problem he says is that more boats increase the chances that Wales will get hit. especially, if the boats are going fast. Whale is far less likely to be hit by ship that's running slow, and if it's running less than ten knots, a good chance to survive even if it is hit, that's just the facts. So regulators started issuing slowdown directives, it few areas these slowdowns are mandatory, but in the Pacific northwest or the orcas live, they remain mostly voluntary. Mariner say they want to avoid the ORCAS but there are business conflicts John? Berg. Is With Pacific, Merchant Shipping Association a Trade Group that represents about thirty shipping lines that do business along the Pacific coast. For a lot of ships. Schedule Integrity. Is. Paramount. and. So they need to be at a certain port at a certain day in a certain time. And so planning is essential especially since coming in late can mean higher fees and lost revenue. Mariners go back and forth about how quiet ships they talk about things like reducing noise by finding optimum speed or by retrofitting or upgrading vessels with more efficient quieter parts. They even say that in some cases slower vessels. Moore of Iraq. Now to researchers, this is a settled question, the faster ship the louder the ship. And it's the noise that is even more detrimental to the ORCAS than ship. Strikes. The underwater cacophony is mostly generated by ship's propeller. It releases vapor filled bubbles. ORCAS like all CETACEANS rely on echo location to communicate, made and find food. For ORCAS, it's how they find salmon as the ORCAS chase salmon they make clicking sounds that they send out into the ocean. The click then bounces off of the salmon and creates an echo, and that's how they know where the salmon are underwater noise pollution specialist. Dr Lindy Wildcard is an adjunct research associate at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. CETACEANS are particularly vocal of the US sounds to find their prey actively using bio sonar. And the various noise sources that humans put into the ocean can affect. Wales and that they are masked, that is the sounds of interests are obliterated by by US adding this sort of acoustics smog of of noise so they can't hear as well. You can actually hear the masking that wildcard is talking about listen to this underwater recording of northern resident orcas who have different dialects from their neighbors, the southern resident or is this recording was provided by Orca lab a nonprofit research center based on Hanson Island near British. Columbia. Canada. Those. SQUEALS ARE ORCA calls. Here's what happens if you overlay their calls with recording of the ship underwater. It drowns out the ORCAS squeals. All you hear is ship noise. That's because the sound created by the ship is at the same high frequency ranges the ORCAS. It's kind of like being at a dinner party where people are talking over each other. But for the ORCAS, the increased sound means they'll lose their seat at the table. If the ORCAS can't hear themselves they can't hear the seminar and so they can't find food. And that can have far reaching impacts that affect the entire population. Their stress hormones can increase. with, noise with the seismic Airgun sounds they also reduce their vocalisations to the point of sometimes falling outright silent, which means they can't communicate with each other and that probably affects mating. If mayors could know where the ORCAS are. They could try to avoid that part of the ocean or at least slow down. So their engine noise doesn't drown the ORCAS OUT Ideally. They'd only have to go slow when the orcas were in the area, but it can be hard for ship captains to confirm where the whales are in fog rain or even under normal circumstances ship captains can't always see them they often miss them. So some conservationists along with the Canadian government installed underwater hydrophones in the Salish Sea along the coast of British Columbia near known ORCA HABITAT, they wanted to be able to track the ORCAS through their echo location calls. But remember how it works. Sound was drowned out by the ship's well, it's not just hard for the orchestra here. It's hard for the humans to. It can take people a long time to listen to all those recordings figuring out what is well sound, and what is this ship fish or other marine life sounds the orcas make noise at all hours of the day and night, and all of that sound even that record overnight has to be listened to by someone. Up. Next. How artificial intelligence can help speed this process up? And maybe find a solution for both the ships and the whales.

From may through October tourists flock to this region to see the southern residents revered for their social nature and strong family ties offspring remain with their mothers for all of their adult lives. But, lately, those lives are being cut short. cavs are dying before they're born or shortly afterwards. The plight of one mother Orca and her calf captured global media attention a few summers ago. Marine biologists are keeping a close eye on an endangered Orca off the waters around the southern Gulf islands. Named Talla J. Thirty five to researchers her calf lived only about thirty minutes but instead of letting it fall to the ocean floor Tala carried the dead calf pushing it around with her nose for an unprecedented amount of time and hundreds of miles researchers say the whales are known to grieve, but never for this many days Orca known as j thirty five is still carrying her baby seventeen days. Later, the mother is going through a deep grieving process, but since then the mother has been getting weaker and weaker as choice to carry, it's dead offspring above the water assigned, she may be experiencing difficult and complex emotions not so unlike our own. Scientists believe calf died of starvation. The incident was well documented by researchers like Paul Cotterell with the Department of fisheries and Oceans Canada. I was out for the whole two weeks and it was very very emotional to see. Just, that bond and hell mum was just so they're reluctant to to let go of the calf. Cattrall knows these whales well, he and other researchers have been closely documenting all three southern resident family pods known as J K and L. The DFO for twenty, three years these animals are photographed in did. All of them every year. So we know. All the animals and we also know. When calves are born and went animals die. So this population is a very well studied in very well understood. Researchers know that the ORCA food supply Chinook salmon is becoming smaller in size and there are fewer salmon being born mostly because of overfishing. And the wheels are having more trouble finding the salmon that is still around because of a dramatic increase in ship traffic in this area. Perhaps, the biggest challenge, these marine mammals face. From The Wall Street? Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Janet. Baben today on the podcast. We head to the Pacific northwest to understand the obstacles that confront these endangered orcas and how researchers are using artificial intelligence to help orcas and humans to coexist. WHAT HAPPENED TO J thirty five or Tala wasn't an anomaly the southern resident cavs have been struggling to survive for some time they've been listed as endangered in both the US and Canada since the mid arts. But their numbers continue to fall in two, thousand five there were eight. Now there are just seventy two in the wild one lives in captivity. Their home waters in the sailor, see an elaborate network of channels that span the coasts of Seattle Vancouver from Olympia Washington in the south to the middle of Vancouver Island British Columbia in the north. The see encompasses puget sound the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan De. FUCA. Much of it is rich in natural beauty and teeming with wildlife with rural shorelines backlit by tall evergreens and craggy. Hills. It's a magnet for nature lovers who crave inactive lifestyle, but the Pacific northwest has been getting crowded these paths few decades with people competing for space with the local wildlife as of two thousand twenty. Washington's population was nearly eight million and Vancouver's topped out at about two and a half million and is projected to grow. It's become a busy place.

You mentioned our podcast network we ask you to rate subscribe and Review Laboratory and friends will be expanding August seventeenth. So we ask you to please support these things rate, subscribe, and review the latest. South. Beat session is getting a lot of applause people enjoyed a conversation with will cain. So you can check that out, me Mike and. Neil and will cain ended up just talking for the first time saying hello and goodbye as his run at the network ends and August seventeenth is replaced on our. You know he's in the mid day is going to be Kellerman and a Greenberg instead of will cain who goes to Fox News but I just heard that rejoins to God's yeah and I don't think Mike sure would mind me telling this story because Mike sure has been on south beach sessions. He's really smart the good place parks and rec he did he was on the office and some of you might not know. Road, the single greatest article and some of the nicest things about me that anyone has ever written. In fact I love it so much. It's frame the wall right in front of me all of it. The entire thing just the nice parts about me it is interesting. You would love as the author of that Article Slate magazine or slate I guess the Internet is what I should say. It used to be a magazine I'm getting that way but he you love a couple of different things one I recently spoke to him and he is just beside himself indignant that your personal record book is something you still haven't done. He's convinced it would be a New York Times Bestseller or laziness stupefying. You could flash your fingers at me. It's going GonNa happen you had meetings it's never. Going to happen but STU gods his personal record book. He's just mortified that you haven't actually publish that yet because of how easy it would be for you to make your beloved money with that book. He so confident of it. Then when I call them and ask them to be a part of the book, He rejected me as you know what everyone else to do the work pay. To do the work who's not like at the top of the Hollywood food chain. To do it for you. Yeah. You want everyone to do your own book for you regardless where never going to get done and it's never gonNA. Happen because Stugatz is the worst but. He is the son-in-law or was the son in law of Regis Philbin. And Regis Philbin recently passed away but the thing that he mentioned casually that rejoined made me burst out laughing thinking of is that. At his wedding because he is the son-in-law of Regis Philbin, it was not any kind of joke Tony Bennett came out and sang fly me to the moon. And I know yes I know cody loves these owners and the idea that that is something that would happen also just on a whim Neil Sadaqa got up there and starting. Yes. These are these are the kind of old acts that cody loves yes. He's giving me a thumbs up. But Regis Philbin. We did not talk about his passing Stugotz a record amount of time on television and one of the few people based on watching them on television. You absolutely felt like you knew him because he was on television so much I. Don't know if you saw this with Damian Lillard and skip bayless Damian Lillard is now coming after skip bayless calling him a clown because it doesn't believe in dame time and he and Damian Lillard is saying that skipping it's such a great argument, WANNA ridiculous. Believe it. It's wonderful. It's wonderful. The Damian Lillard is calling skip bayless clown because Tim skip bayless has the temerity to not believe in dame time. But now he is saying Damian. Lillard is that skip bayless is someone different on and off the air, which is pretty true actually because he's not nearly that kind of obnoxious off air, you will find a lot of people meet skip bayless not will cain actually might will cain on the South Beach Session you will not find a lot of people who have such a big of Gulf of difference between how they are people have worked with skip bayless will say the nicest things about them, how they are off air. And how they are on air to different people you can't say that about Regis Philbin hope with this south session to shed a light on will cain that it's weird. We chose now to get to notable we'll cain as he departs, but it's an interesting conversation with that context in mind because there's a lot going on how we've done content has changed out from under us in a have his perspective. It's an interesting conversation I'm glad we had it. All right. South beat session rates subscribe and Review Rob Schneider's next. So, Rob Schneider has a new comedy Special Stugatz.

"Pregnancies are good news for the southern resident killer whales and right now, it looks like there are three whales including j thirty five who could give birth. But there's a long way to go today. We're GONNA talk about the lives of these orcas and our complicated relationship with them here to do that with us is Linda makes she's the environment reporter at the Seattle Times Linda. Thanks for joining us. Thank you, Trish. So give us a quick recap on J. Thirty five for people who weren't here maybe when her calf died. So J thirty five or Takuma really is the ORCA whale who changed the conversation about this very small population of whales and very sadly trish as I talked to today that population is even smaller than it was two years ago when she gave birth to a female calf and it live for only one half hour, and then she did something that scientists know these animals do as well as other, very, highly intelligent. Socially, bonded animals they grieve and she just refused to let that baby go. Now, this calf is probably six feet. Long weighs about three hundred pounds, and for seventeen days, she just refused to let it go and she had to decide to retire. She went down for breath to pick it up once again and carry it some more, and it really did touch the hearts. People around the world and even though these <hes> southern resident orcas have been listed as dangerous since two thousand and five. Suddenly people really did understand for the first time, just how fragile they are, and the fact that these aren't just random black and white wildlife. These are families with very, very close bonds. And why do you think that we feel so attached to these orca because I grew up in the Eighties and Wales were such a big deal. You know every girl had little whale necklace and why do we feel so attached I'm gonNA, make a sound for you inherit comes. That is sound of a whale breathing. They are mammals like us, and that's sound when you hear it, it's like a sound from the beginning of the world. It's It's a magnificent presence to be with these whales and you and you understand as you observe their family bond says, you see the way they take care of one another. You know they're so superior to people they. They have brilliant diplomacy. They share space in the ocean without ever warring or committing any acts of aggression against one another. They've families together for life. It's really quite remarkable and they've been around don't forget this for six million years as a species. So these are in every way our elders and mentors for how to run a successful society and don't forget this. They were doing just fine until we showed up. How do we raise up the cause of the ORCA of the environment here without doing the thing that we tend to do a lot of as humans, which is just the help that hurts, how do we walk that line? Actually, this is easier than ever I mean, let's remember how we got to know these southern resident whales. Well, it was the capture era which by the way was not that long ago. Free, willy. Oh. Yeah. Anybody could go out and catch themselves a killer whale for an aquarium or for that matter, sell it for profit anouar in the world until as recently as are you ready Nineteen, seventy six. So wow, that's really recent. Recent and the only while who've had survived that time is still alive and she's still at the Miami Seaquarium and the fiftieth anniversary of her capture and Penn cove is on August seventh. Wow. This is recent time and ironically it was through seeing these so-called killer whales up close in captivity and realizing their incredible intelligence and they're gentle personalities that people went through a whole change in their understanding about these animals and today they're not only revered but protected and I said it's easier than ever to love these animals without loving them to death God look at what you can watch the documentary footage that's out there to enjoy these animals is so much. Better than anything that has ever been available. The amount of knowledge we have about them is superb growing by the day and you know you can watch them from shore. The idea that you need to spend the money by the way and get on a boat. Go after them. You know that's not the only way to enjoy these whales and I think that it's important to. Show some restraint and also some respect for their space. So. J thirty five is pregnant. Again, this is a good sign but two thirds of pregnancies in this population are lost. I learned this lesson with birds in my backyard last year in a nest so. This is not the time for a baby shower. We have a long way to go here. That's so well said. I would think about it. This way this time to hold space for these oils to hold them in your mind and think about what you can do to help whether it's something that might feel small but adds up such as be involved in local land use decisions in your community.

But the calf lived less than an hour as the world watched its mother known as J thirty five or tele carried her caps body for seventeen days over thousands of miles. Now, J. Thirty five appears to be pregnant again in a minute Seattle, times environment reporter, Linda mates will tell us what this means for the southern resident population. But first, let's get you caught up on. Congressional hearings, just not the same over zoom surveys. You're on. Mute is to basis. I, believe you're on mute. I'm sorry. Tech Moguls. They're just like us all right. The House judiciary. Committee. Spent four hours questioning the CEO's of Amazon, apple, Google and facebook yesterday, lots of questions for bazo about how Amazon uses customer data to compete with it. Sellers House. Democrats are looking whether to pass new antitrust laws to rain in the company's. The snohomish county sheriff's office says, it's solved another cold case using genetic genealogy sixty, two year old, Alan Edward Dean was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of killing fifteen year old Melissa Lee in nineteen. ninety-three Dean was questioned by police when Louis died, but it was only this year that investigators were able to confirm that a DNA sample at the crime scene was his. They did that by uploading the sample to a public DNA database and connecting it to the DNA of deans relatives eventually leading back to him. And if you're one of the Washingtonians, you've got a package of seeds from China. Mail to you out of nowhere don't plant them.

Pregnancies are good news for the southern resident killer whales and right now, it looks like there are three whales including j thirty five who could give birth. But there's a long way to go today. We're GONNA talk about the lives of these orcas and our complicated relationship with them here to do that with us is Linda makes she's the environment reporter at the Seattle Times Linda. Thanks for joining us. Thank you, Trish. So give us a quick recap on J. Thirty five for people who weren't here maybe when her calf died. So J thirty five or Takuma really is the ORCA whale who changed the conversation about this very small population of whales and very sadly trish as I talked to today that population is even smaller than it was two years ago when she gave birth to a female calf and it live for only one half hour, and then she did something that scientists know these animals do as well as other, very, highly intelligent. Socially, bonded animals they grieve and she just refused to let that baby go. Now, this calf is probably six feet. Long weighs about three hundred pounds, and for seventeen days, she just refused to let it go and she had to decide to retire. She went down for breath to pick it up once again and carry it some more, and it really did touch the hearts. People around the world and even though these southern resident orcas have been listed as dangerous since two thousand and five. Suddenly people really did understand for the first time, just how fragile they are, and the fact that these aren't just random black and white wildlife. These are families with very, very close bonds. And why do you think that we feel so attached to these orca because I grew up in the Eighties and Wales were such a big deal. You know every girl had little whale necklace and why do we feel so attached I'm gonNA, make a sound for you inherit comes. That is sound of a whale breathing. They are mammals like us, and that's sound when you hear it, it's like a sound from the beginning of the world. It's It's a magnificent presence to be with these whales and you and you understand as you observe their family bond says, you see the way they take care of one another. You know they're so superior to people they. They have brilliant diplomacy. They share space in the ocean without ever warring or committing any acts of aggression against one another. They've families together for life. It's really quite remarkable and they've been around don't forget this for six million years as a species. So these are in every way our elders and mentors for how to run a successful society and don't forget this. They were doing just fine until we showed up. How do we raise up the cause of the ORCA of the environment here without doing the thing that we tend to do a lot of as humans, which is just the help that hurts, how do we walk that line? Actually, this is easier than ever I mean, let's remember how we got to know these southern resident whales. Well, it was the capture era which by the way was not that long ago. Free, willy. Oh. Yeah. Anybody could go out and catch themselves a killer whale for an aquarium or for that matter, sell it for profit anouar in the world until as recently as are you ready Nineteen, seventy six. So wow, that's really recent. Recent and the only while who've had survived that time is still alive and she's still at the Miami Seaquarium and the fiftieth anniversary of her capture and Penn cove is on August seventh. Wow. This is recent time and ironically it was through seeing these so-called killer whales up close in captivity and realizing their incredible intelligence and they're gentle personalities that people went through a whole change in their understanding about these animals and today they're not only revered but protected and I said it's easier than ever to love these animals without loving them to death God look at what you can watch the documentary footage that's out there to enjoy these animals is so much. Better than anything that has ever been available. The amount of knowledge we have about them is superb growing by the day and you know you can watch them from shore. The idea that you need to spend the money by the way and get on a boat. Go after them. You know that's not the only way to enjoy these whales and I think that it's important to. Show some restraint and also some respect for their space. So. J thirty five is pregnant. Again, this is a good sign but two thirds of pregnancies in this population are lost. I learned this lesson with birds in my backyard last year in a nest so. This is not the time for a baby shower. We have a long way to go here. That's so well said. I would think about it. This way this time to hold space for these oils to hold them in your mind and think about what you can do to help whether it's something that might feel small but adds up such as be involved in local land use decisions in your community..

White House or Fight House? Tevi Troy’s new book looks at tiffs and turf wars among White House staffers

"With us and we're gonna talk about that you know the fussing and fighting vet says going on in the White House and don't think for a second that that's exclusive to Donald trump's administration you know it's kind of interesting anytime it's its whatever you're closest to write in history and other things they have to be the worst you know and so Donald Trump his administration's wise it just has to be the worst all the fussing and fighting in in fighting that's going on like no other president before well before you really jump that shark and think that that is the case then you start believing you're hyperbole I once you get your hands on this new book called White House from doctor Tevye Troy bestselling author and former White House adviser okay he's been on the inside he's known as and researched and studied this and he's right about now with his book White House rivalries in the White House from Truman J. trump Dr Troy welcome to the show good to have you with us thanks bill Bradley on talk about played out hello this is this is it this is exciting you know that you know to put this out because you know this conversation has come up from time to time and you always hear from you know the hyperbolic that downhole trump is the worst ever and then you you start bringing back some of the the stories and histories and now here it is you've documented it I imagine if you wanted to go back even before Truman we we have to do episodes inch you know volumes of all the fussing happening in the White House right no absolutely and and we know that they were fighting before experiment where we are perfect I mean you look at the administration of Washington and Hamilton and Jefferson murder each other's throats but the difference is they were cabinet members and when I try to get that in my house how the dynamic change once we had the creation of a White House staff there was no real White House staff before Roosevelt and Truman the first person to enter the White House staff and make change the dynamic in that certainly you have the people who are close to the president meaning in the same building advising him on foreign policy and economic policy and then you might have a treasury secretary or spectators biggest ticked off that somebody else is inviting in his area that was one thing that changed in that that meant that I wasn't quite interesting to note that that the dynamic in the entrance of more humanity just because the more issues right yeah look and government was growing mistake became higher and then also you have this right the best celebrity White House aide the whole idea of a White House staff was supposed to be people with a passion for anonymity but that went away pretty quickly especially in the Kennedy administration when he hired people who are already famous like orcas lessons or to work in the White House is suddenly how celebrity White House they had its own reputation has long ties to the craft and they they could get their word out there if the policies were not going their way and to suddenly you have this idea of leaks and counter leaks you can make you look good in the press and that also at the White House right now make that I talk about the book in the course that is continued and become almost like a to the degree of a tender green black belt when you talk about all this and leaking and stuff going on you know but bad enough that it happens in DC but now of course with the most recent refill we understand that even ambassadors in our state department is running rampant with it as well yeah well you talk about ten degree black belt and that that was Henry Kissinger I'll tell you one great story that's been quite how's that Kissinger was dating Jill St John a very attractive bond girl actress Mandy comes out in the papers that Kissinger's dating this woman and Kissinger ghost and extending complains that his rival Christy William Rogers leaked the information about your retaining but the truth is that your lease it because a he wanted everyone to know he was dating that the truck the bond girl would be he wanted to hurt Rogers any internal wars and bribery deposit so what happened what was it what was the conclusion that well well written exam would rail about all the leaking that happened at the state department and constant complained about it but just not your fat it but at least some of the time we know the kiss your will the guy doing the leaking and then blaming the state department and of course everybody knows because your date of birth second longer up there with a win win corrective measure like you would can degrade black belt in Plato's exactly so he gets the he gets the reward and the award let's talk about president Truman we touched a little bit on that I mean he he he was I guess the modern era of the expanding the staff and and really kind of bringing this into play and of course it's just been kind of kind of a a monolith that like the blob is just been growing unto itself right yes Sir but instrument you have the right there were just unbelievable I don't I'm a presidential historian I've been putting this stuff for decades and the story behind in spite house were were things I'd never even heard of and one breaks during the ministration is that the secretary of state George Marshall as opposed to the recognition of the state of Israel which is flabbergasting to update the business interest on July especially right there at that critical time because it was true and that led the battle for inferred knowledge meant of Israel that would that would be very fight with marshals on the wrong side of it Clark Clifford a junior White House beat it on the right side of it make an argument in front of Clifford Clifford and Truman and Marshall are all arguing out in the White House Clifford wins the argument Truman recognized Israel Marshall is still mad that he never again the clippers or mentions his name for the rest of life right yeah right because so it's pretty petty but yeah such as such as you can't be the government the illusion of the Kennedy Camelot regime you said was not devoid of conflict as well of course in Kennedy do you have this notion of Camelot music wonderful people sitting around a table can you never even heard the term Camelot elections administration that comes from our interview that took place after the administration after he was dead yes but even in the administration there was fighting taking place especially between Lyndon Johnson and Robert F. Kennedy canteen was the product any would be turned general and the president brother Lynn Johnson vice president that you hated each other going back to their time in the Senate together when we can't even the lowly staffer and Johnson with the Senate Majority Leader and they had these nasty nicknames for him brought Robert if they reported Johnson is ruthless corded phone and get a canny referred to by Johnson as bunny boy really didn't like each other and they're always trying well anyway and we've known that that that tension what is it was pretty extreme there between them what else within the Kennedy at Camelot compound anything else that you discovered yeah there was a a a a rivalry between artists less intervention before they collect their prize winning historian who came to the White House when the first intellectual ever worked in the White House and then there was Ted Sorensen it was not as well known but he was closer to Kennedy and there was tension between them that continued even after the administration because the two of them we're kind of bracing to get their books out first hand stories then asked her to stop and stop writing his books but it's different in different book out first plus you're obviously would not agree and there were and the race was on and it it colored their relationship there's tension between them that went on for a long time and I got to imagine especially after the assassination these rivalries it would increase all the more would they not yeah and if there is one great story that dean Rusk with the sector state did not like that Slazenger called him brutalized in silence in meetings during the Kennedy administration implying that he wouldn't say anything that's a rough put it out there the only reason he was silent in meetings this lessons are within the facilities are respected leaker and we would talk about everything that he heard needing three wins Mr this is this is great fun Dr Chevy try I'd say it's good fun because you know the politics is just right for comedy it's it's when we take it too seriously like at times we're doing right now in this current environment then we deprive ourselves of of the little bit of humor in thank you Dr drive for presenting

"Is now a part of camp no limits team a foundation that has had and continues to have such profound impact helping empower the lives of human beings helping helping them to understand that they really have no limits. I'm excited to talk to him. Alex welcome to the Nice guys on business podcast. Doug thanks so much for having me. Hey I'm happy to have you. You hear man and I was looking at. I got through about twelve seconds of the video on your homepage and I'm already crying. You know it's like it's like whoever makes us nonprofit videos they do them specifically for especially for foundations as great as the ones that that that you're a part of Really pull at your heartstrings. So is is that. What got you interested in working with? The no limits foundation was something else I got involved because I was doing that TV show that I was hosting as you mentioned. I was reaching out to businesses Mrs Personally facebook groups diversity groups disability groups be a facebook Mary late in the owner of the elements foundation responded to to one of my messages. I asked if they could share it if they could promote it helps me out. She said Yeah. Of course. Alex congrats on on on. The show would definitely love to share hurt. Here's what we're all about. Would you be interested in coming to one of our camps yourself and seeing world. So why don't you just give me a thumbnail. Sketch of what of what camp. No no limits is is all about. I was watching again. The videos reading the about me page and doing some other research and it sounds like it has huge impact on the lives of of Of Human beings a lot of them looks like our our kids. On era in your video is it. Is it an all kids based foundation. It's all young people kids and teenagers And then but it's also their whole families are able to attend so their siblings. Their parents So they're in picked impacted by Lim losses. Well so Kanye. Limits is a camp for a young people with limb differences or limb loss and their entire families so the mission of campus to educate empower and support the campers and they started in two thousand and four with only one camp in four families and then now we have ten camps across the whole country and we serve hundreds of families each year we incorporate the variety of programs with specialized professionals within the camp including physical therapists occupational therapists processed and adult amputee role models like myself that come and work with the campers. we want our campers in their families to have tools to know what's going to work best for them outside of just just can't bring him back to their community so they'll learn how to adapt the learn the newest technology and prosthetics that they may have not ever seen or used before though they'll meet adult amputate who are thriving and successful in their own minds. And basically it's important for the campers and the kids that are to know Oh that they're not the only ones navigating the world with with limb loss so camp is a good place to see other amazing kids and adults for them and know that they're not not alone and they could just be a kid and being different is cool. I can remember and I appreciate you giving us the the background. I can remember probably about ten maybe even fifteen years ago now as a as a guy that started in the entertainment business as a mobile DJ. I can remember doing a A camp I think it was called camp super kids and it was back back on the east coast and it was a camp that was specifically dedicated to helping families that had children that were struggling with with asthma and And the and the and the self limiting beliefs that of kids you know when you go into a school and you have a thousand kids in the school and you have four or five kids that have asthma. Let's say They feel different. You know they feel like they don't fit in. There's a whole bunch and I'm sure very similar to the kids that that come to your camp. They just don't feel like they fit in and all of a sudden you put them. I'm in a group that is one hundred percent like You know I mean either like disabilities or or or like issues or whatever like challenges and now they all start to talk to each other and they realized that they're not alone and sometimes that sense of community is all one needs to kind of To help them believe and get out of those self limiting beliefs helps empower kids to To just to be feel like like they're more quote unquote more normal which which which they were to begin with a you know so is that is that kind of the approach that that The no limits camp in Kim no limit sticks. You just said it best But I think yeah the biggest takeaway that they get in being in a atmosphere with one hundred percent of others better better. That are different You know the sense of confidence that they get from and they can take back home. Is I think the biggest takeaway from from camp they come to camp rampant and kids are shy in the beginning. Yes this is life changing for the the camper But the families you know a lot of these families come from communities where where they don't know you know you mentioned that that old organization where the ORCAS with asthma. A lot of these kids come from schools where they are. The there isn't for. There's you know anybody so you know it's important for the families to be there and mingle and each other and they become closer over time too so so you deal with probably every department that a That a an entrepreneurial based business would deal with also you're dealing with marketing you're dealing with payroll and accounting you're dealing with staff and personnel I would have to assume that people don't come to work for No limits foundation or camp no limits. They're not coming to work for the foundation because of the huge paycheck that's involved. It's more of the satisfaction or maybe it is the huge paycheck. Maybe I'm making assumption that that I shouldn't be making. But what is it that you think drives people to want to come to work for the foundation. I I think it's it's a connection. I mean like you know what I like Komo personally I was connected because I was a little different myself in with one loss. So when I found this place it's a magical and I couldn't believe that it existed and I was like ah to be in a weather I'm staff on this or remain a volunteer and I think that's exactly what all the other staff and encounters that are associated with cam limits. Feel about it as well. There's there has to be a connection to feel strong about it and be on board with it and to to thrive their mission so when it comes down to it what is the. What's the goal of each camp session on? And you have these camp sessions all summer long as it just outside of the school all year as well or is it just a summer summer activity it. Most of the camps happened throughout the summer season. Like our first one for twenty twenty is in Florida by clearwater and that happens in J.. Anyway so then we have one in January a break till April and then we have about eight camps that happened in the summer from April to September in a break. And then that's it so yeah from April to September or the other nine camps. And how many how many kids attend each Each camp session might depend on the location at Tanya so all they locations Some are smaller than the other but average we have anywhere awesome hundred to three hundred people attend. Wow that's terrific and what's what is the The length of time that The child is spending or young adult is spending at your camp so the the young adult and their families attend for about three to five days. Our goal is to turn these ten camps into you know twenty camps for thirty forty camps across the country to go international because those numbers I mentioned earlier with twenty five hundred congenital birth year with with limb differences says and stressed the US alone so we want to expand Expand our staff going to expand our impact in

You one of the new things. Though for me was slots which I don't normally play play. I think subconsciously I was thinking about what Tristan Harris talked about in the first season of sleep walker former Google lower. Who told us that? Instagram is actually supposed to feel a lot like slot machine or the Tristan studied at the Stanford persuasion lab and told us about how casino architecture has influenced the development of highly addictive tape products like instagram. Interesting for me to actually see Vegas and the bright lights and the impossibility of escape firsthand not to mention the replicas of if the empire state building the canals of Venice Coliseum of Rome you know I was lucky enough to see the Seattle space needle for the first time. I didn't know that it was in Las Vegas. But doesn't we were there. We were there for C.. Es The consumer electronics show in this episode. Were actually going to talk about some of the coolest things we saw there.

Paper dispensers run of the big reasons we went is because we you were invited by wave maker which is an agency part of WPP to do an interview on stage alive. PODCAST so to speak with Matt Monahan. The HATTON who is head of product at publishing and publishing is part of the Washington Post Orcas also an interesting case of a and action because they're forward thinking in terms of increasing the visibility of content through personalization. An optimizing everything from headlines to photo selection all using machine learning and those are things that really matter for journalists and readers. Yeah and this use of. Ai stands out to me because it provides a solution to real problem. How do you get eyeballs on the right content when there's just so much that said the issue of personalization does raise questions about what happens when machine thought to know US better than we know ourselves not to mention and what are the appropriate limits of how companies use AI and data about us? Yeah I can definitely streamline processes by detecting patterns that you know human beings cannot see or it can allow you to scale like tag hundreds of thousands of articles that again human beings just cannot do so greater efficiency is on one side of the spectrum and extremely attractive to people but on the other side. You have issues of taking humans out of the loop like the blackbox problem and authenticity in a world of deep fake so a question for businesses and users of technology is sort of when does Ai. Add to our experience experience and when does it maybe hold us back or take advantage of us for example from seeing news stories that we should see but maybe the algorithm doesn't think we want want to see it or that we won't click on it right in the old days. When everyone received a print newspaper on their doorstep? Everyone had the same front page in the same headlines Nowadays holidays when you log onto a news website or on social media everybody has a different version of the world and that is obviously positive for driving engagement but may not be so positive in terms of having conversations with the same facts about the same stories equally. We have to ask. Do we want articles where the headlines been written by Algorithm. ooh Do we prefer headlines written person. And that's something we talked about with Matt because all actually tested headline writing technology. Let's talk to Matt. Lucas says let's cut to the chase are really came out of a collaboration trying to better understand what actual journalists needed it. Can you talk a little bit more at the very beginning. You know we were just trying to solve problems for ourselves. Seven or eight years ago. We knew he had to make some pretty fundamental transformation to the post and to really prepare for the digital future. We didn't have the right tools to do it. And we couldn't really find the right tools on the market either. What we did was spent a lot of the journalist and the editor is trying to figure out what it was that make their lives easier? It's trying to figure out. How do you make journalists work better publish faster? What are the little things you can do? Inside of IT products make it easier easier for them to write stories or publish from there about four years ago when we started evolving into a commercial offering. Today we're running hundreds of websites around the world breath about twenty different countries. We're running companies like BP their internal communications as well as some of the marketing. We're running large broadcasters and all their live video and beauty and of course I was still running a lot of newspapers and news publishers. Like the post and many others around the world looking in publishing you know that. Ai Artificial intelligence in headlines MHM and there was a story in the Financial Times last year. We said forty percent of startups us. No whatsoever uh-huh so I bet it's probably higher so when we talk about using a Ohio when you talk about what we actually mean so it can span the range of technologies analogies from something like machine learning which is basically a way to use algorithms to take large sets of data in either uncover patterns in it or try to model away to predict a certain outcome. The two technologies like computer vision which you can use to look at images or video and extract information about them by recognizing patterns and trying to identify objects inside of them and so a lot of those technologies than when you put them together conform. Some really interesting workflows that you know in the past. You might have had us humans to do that. You can actually do much more simple automatically. was there a the titular business challenge or challenge the Washington Post that. You couldn't have sold if you hadn't been using AI. Any story that we right on Washington Post. We're mapping to a set of I two or three hundred topics maybe an example of one of those might be like congressional policy or narcotics crime. What you're trying to do is say if I look at all this content? I'm not just pulling specific words. I'm actually trying to figure out. What is this content about? What is the fundamental concept of this so you pick a set of articles? Let's say one hundred two thousand news articles in the case this example for the post and I see us. Humans of Micro Labor to do this training set and the goal is you're building an algorithm Based on a set of real data and so the humans are going there and saying this article. Yeah this is about congressional policy. Why because I know it is I read it? That's what it's about. This one's about narcotics crime time and this one's about soccer and so you train all these articles against that algorithm until finally the algorithm is basically sufficiently advanced to predict a new article that you put into it and determine it outcome with the same high probability of success that you're able to with human training now every time. A journalist Saves Saves publishes the story we're able to Parse over all the contents inside that story then we can predict the strength at which it's likely to belong to that topic. How do you create a better user experience in your case news experience for an individual consumer with the medicine? You can do a lot of interesting things we can figure out that. Hey this is something that they're interested in reading. Perhaps they'd like to read more in. It actually serves the signal into a recommendation Algorithms from your perspective where can businesses sort of harness the power of machine learning to really hone in on who their customer is and what that customer wants. We want to deliver more content to our readers leaders. Who Want to help them? Find more content that we've created. We have about nine hundred journalists at the Washington Post we write something like three or four hundred original stories today. So there's is a Lotta content there to get readers to all different content and to have them continue moving through your constant. You spent a lot of money to produce is really challenging. And so that's a great use case for personalization Shen but where you can make it really come alive is by having more sophisticated. Meditated more sophisticated information about that content. That's more likely to bring readers to it. And so that's where these machine learning remodels really come in handy. I think part of what's fun about this conversation is there's a lot of cases out there where average users you know. They imagine they see something like that. You see the boots on instagram. And you think Oh my God he's companies. Must you know indiscernible for magic right. There must be some crazy model out there doing this. And perhaps is there is but in a lot of ways you know. Your users aren't necessarily as aware of the advertising ecosystem data ecosystem and how these things tied together between platforms incites and I think as like industry professionals. We always kind of underestimate that fact and so the net effect is that users are completely surprised by this. I think you must be doing something completely on her to achieve it. When in fact you know it could be really simple data sharing and so the reason? I think that's important than when you do. Bill Technologies that actually utilize some these more sophisticated methods to build data sets. You have to be aware that your users you know first of all your users aren't going to necessarily anticipate the outcomes you can create and if you don't do a good job on the product side of making sure that you really think through the use case and how you're leveraging technology solve it you can generate unexpected outcomes. You know there was the example of the retailer who produced advertising flyers that were able to predict folks who are pregnant right. Even if some of those folks didn't necessarily know that themselves or hadn't shared it with with their family or their spouses.

Meet Emma, The Immigration Chatbot

"Our guest today. Is Courtney wind chip who the division chief of the Digital Services Division at the office of Citizenship and applicant information services under the US citizen and immigration services. USCIS hike Ernie. Thank you so much for joining us on the podcast today. Thanks for having me. Yeah welcome Courtney and thanks for joining us. Today we'd like to start by having you introduce as yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at US CIS. Sure happy to do so. So as you mentioned. My Name's Courtney I'm with. US citizenship immigration services that we oversee the lawful immigration and naturalization in to the United States so this includes any family employment or Humanitarian Ryan benefits that an individual may apply for in order to enter remain in the United States. My current role is as a digital services division cheap and we we oversee all of the public visual tools that we have which includes very USCIS website English and Spanish as well as websites. Thanks for citizenship. Resources as well as they are five and we are awesome building out account services. This is an area of the web that is cure that it allows for online transactions and other support services that allow individuals to self service and provides a bit more precise information. So that's my permanent role. I am in an acting role as well where I oversee. Data Management in our office of chief data offers great. Well I know one of the reasons why we're having you on this podcasts. Of course because we're focused on artificial intelligence and one of the patterns that we talk a lot about is one of those seven patterns of a I is this conversational pattern and the US deployed employed. Recently one of the most widely used chat bots in the federal government called. Ask Emma and I know that website is very highly heavily traffic traffic website and of course also feels a lot of phone calls. People are definitely very enthusiastic about contact regarding immigration immigration status lettuce so for our listeners. Who may not be familiar with? Ask Emma and what you're doing on the chat bots. Can you tell us a little bit about that and how that came to be yeah. Emma started in December number twenty fifteen and is the first interactive virtual assistant to date. She has successfully responded to more than thirty five million inquiries for more than eleven million users. So we're very very excited about that. And she has a success rate of about ninety three percent in English and ninety percent in Spanish so she has become a very useful tool for many of our applicants and the general public. I give you a sense of her usage versus some of the other things things we receive about fourteen million calls from and all of our digital tools. Together you have about twenty five billion sessions for months so you can see. She is a highly traffic pool that we rely on very heavily and she has grown and expanded her knowledge over the years. So right now she has an. I don't know right that hovers between eight to ten percent English. And we're hoping to get that down even lower over coming years. And as we continue to train her and we also see her as a great tool to collaborate with our external stakeholders as well as internal stakeholders so initially she a trained with our adjudicators our case managers review cases and our contact center staff over time. We had her trained also with the public and now she has a ton of information and then in more recent years we've also integrated her with live chat services so she's continuing to the pills than where she doesn't have goals. We are now able ambition to from live help services. Yes that's a lot of inquiries every month when you said those numbers I was like. Oh my Guinness so I can see how a chap can be very useful and now that you've had 'em for a few years. I'm sure that there's a lot that you've learned and as you said you continue continued to improve and try and get her. I don't know right up. So for other agencies that are looking to deploy chat bots and industry as well for that matter. What lessons have you learned both good and bad from this experience that you can share with our listeners so we obviously learned many many lessons along the way you know? Some of the lessons that I think are important than have have been really key for us are clever. Aiding and Co creating from the outset so working as I mentioned with our internal and external stakeholders the really develop develop tour of that is all and also has allowed us to think about ways in which we can leverage technology as best we can so five years ago how we were using chat bots is very different and the investments. We're making this very different than than some of the technology available now so I think allowing us to find a lot of the tools that are available right now row for better automation and content management. And that's something that we have struggled with over the years and I would recommend the folks that if they can consider that and consider how also how transferable it'll may be based on the technologies they're trying not to lock into length solution Shen but really be able to use a variety of solutions meet their needs and also how that could integrate with other efforts that they have that they've prioritized of the years. Yeah look at Chat bots and conversational systems of all sorts kinds that are built until websites but also texting and messaging and even now the new voice assistance on Alexa and Siri Google home and all those places in Cortana and they may be thinking about the return on investment. Right a lot of folks like well. Why would use the Chat Bot well hopefully to reduce call volume maybe to improve customer support and service maybe to respond to requests? When you're not usually open right the the offices are closed and I think you know there's lots of different ways of thinking about an inmate? It'd be interesting to share from your perspective. You know where and how you know the Chat Bot in specific and maybe more generals barrels having a big impact on the way that you're serving customers and just both in terms like where are you seeing the return on investment now but also looking towards the future are you looking at its future. Roi and maybe ways that you're looking to expand the use of chat bots and AI. In general in the next few years got excellent questions. I think our biggest a school has been how to create more space for our case workers to focus on complex immigration issues news and reviews rather than some of the more basic questions like K.. Status or processing time but we receive on a day-to-day basis so allow Emma and other tools to provide that information to the public and ideally get them. It's timely accurate information as quickly as possible on their timeframe right as opposed to having to rely on when contact centers opened lower case workers to focus on the more complex cases and where needed having to have the in person interaction. So I think that's where we've seen value. I mean it's something I will say is a phrase. We thought Emma would produce call volume. We find that and I think one of the things that we are looking. We've been carefully examining over the last couple of years but particularly I I was saying last six to twelve months is how'd we most effectively use the channels that we have available to the public for inquiries are customer. I'm Craig Channel and that we may in fact start to make some really tough decisions about what channels are available for. What purpose and really start to nudge? The people into certain types of tools or resources so that they can get the best information that we have available and allow again our team. Focus on the case Orca. Though you know it's interesting that you said that Emma didn't actually reduce the call volume. I guess people use her as first line of Defense and ask her certain questions but then at the end of the day maybe they still want that human interaction so have you found that it's reduced call volumes for certain types of questions or is that a goal that you're looking to the have in the coming years that's a goal. We are looking to have in the coming year so right now. She provides some basic information about K status and processing assessing times in particular which are the areas. We get the most inquiries about gloves things like changing your address. But I think what we're trying to do is use a similar functionality. optionality that Emma has used that in a more secure environment authenticated environment

"Are united and my feelings. All of us. Who Know about that will? Oh remember exactly what we were doing at that moment and the sailor sea will never look the same again. I love that I love that. It's amazing picture. Sure and just ocean citizen just the matriarch of L. Pod. Now she's the matriarch of the entire some residents. She's we've had conversations with Ralph Munroe and he was secretary of State in nineteen seventy in Washington state. He gave the permit the capture and he said two things to us he said Turkey they took away all after wail after whale. They devastated the pot devastated curious curious though he said I think they might violated the terms of their permit because they used to get this underwater explosives took around him independent if they were supposed to use underwater explosives but they did now. That pod never backed pinch off and I think there's such a thing as ptsd for Orca that moment when they saw young ones killed taking away adults killed filled with concrete and sunk to the bottom all of that devastation for these highly intelligent. Listen animals the ones that survived when they see her come home. I'll bet show up. We can pin codes. That would be amazing. They everything that I gather about them is that they knowledge is they've they've stayed away from places they were caught all over. You know they pass on on knowledge that you know what surprises me and I I don't mean to offend but it surprises me that we're surprised these are these you know this just foster. Have you talked to Jeff Foster Nella. You should talk to Jeff Foster. He is one of the people. That's working with us on this. This other residents Santo Guitar and also he was he is he is involved. In freeing the ORCA and the BELUGAS from the jail in Russia he's directly involved in that effort he said said something. I I've been studying and working with orchestras. Nineteen seventy sixty five. Actually he said if you were to take If we had if we observe ORCA ORCA throughout all of its life and one hundred percent we have three percent observational data. Three like I said well the only have three. How do you know you have three? You might point three. They don't understand at all ORCA. What's been fascinating Charleston to people spent any time at all around this other residents is everyone is speak to has an impossible story Everyone is fictionally implausible encounter with these orcas. I filming a movie granny and she wreaking showed up and breached from us now. We we were told repeatedly that'd be lucky to see granny. This summer. She showed up. She greeted right on camera. wrenches on camera at the people of the watching these Watson sells for twenty years. We've seen granny breach five times six and seven eleven. Where would you tonight? There's a meaning in their. Oh absolutely you talk to the verse. People who spent their lives with these vessels they've all got these impossible. Missile encounters including what Cam BALCON taught the day he got lost in the water and ORCA. pod showed him the way home in a way. That hasn't happened before. So you know. I think that's a very interesting metaphor. I think the Orca the southern residents can show us all the way home. When I started my work on this because I wasn't coming coming from a science perspective I started asking? Would I thought would be an easy question. I was like give me. The scientific reason were considered more evolved as just what is it. I thought for sure I would talk. Somebody go well. There's this there's this this and there wasn't what sign also I through. So what is the moral reason we have legal rights and they don't and again on somebody to have an answer for that that's completely stopped people and ever since then I'm going okay unless so somebody can give me a sign reason other than it would be inconvenient. Winds Wales don't have rights. I don't keep fighting. These ORCA staff rights. I think it may come down to. There's a great group of New York. You probably heard of them called the Earth Law Center. It's been observed that The the sort of the capitalist enterprise. That's been around for you. Know five hundred years more or less as we understand it has been Endeavoring covering mightily for about three of that time to capture tribal communities and to inspire the capitalist modus operandi Sunday among tribal communities which of course based on extended family relations right. I mean the object of life is not to maintain family ties so much as to provide and gathering acquire virus much. You can't so that they can't quite capture tribal communities and one of the things that and they haven't one one of the things that's interesting about that is coming in train or tribal belief among trip not all tribes and not every person but collectively generally. I think it's a fair generalization that they live in an animated world and that kind of animated world was disenchanted in kind of the Euro American experience about two. I wonder years ago. Maybe three hundred years ago and the it's very interesting that some of the newest stories coming up through these marginalized host societies are saying along with what you were just saying. By what higher moral authority do you disenchant world and takeaway person who had from nature. I mean who who who gave you that right I mean where did you get that from. Well I can answer that question Camille Dirk time this. Yeah I mean He. He basically basically in nineteen. Oh three along with Coburn said. Oh animism is child's play. Get rid of it. Don't even honor it. Don't even talk about it. It's not it's not real. It's just child's play. It's what children think. Well that's probably true It's not childish. It just hasn't been taken out of them yet. You know what I'm saying animism animism tribalism and enchanted. World are all in the same bundle and all of it is that a federal to financial capitalism and the commodification to make sure you can't commodified nature when a person hood You know you can't just treat it as for example my background's in forestry my part of my background is in forestry forestry and I did an article one time based on things that I had learned in a couple of years being here called. We deal export feet on the Cedar Tree because in this article it was in the year restore sure but it was a couple of journals. Point I was making was foresters. Myself are taught that the tighter the green in a treat more decadent bent tree is dying faster than strolling second. CUT It out well here. In this part of the world the title of the grain more power for the song for ancient saw. Aw So it's revered as an elder interesting So it was called. How do you get to a place where you can? Equally honor the belief systems uh-huh and the consequences of those belief systems equally. That answer is not Tom. The questions to be asked because the answer might be inconvenient convenient inconvenient truth for people who believe we are here to own and acquire. It's just kinda problem is we. He stumbled upon an alien civilization. That did something as complicated as an orca greeting ceremony. I think pretty much take one. Look and go wow. We've we've found intelligent life not how we treat the ORCAS at all interesting isn't it. Yeah well you know. They'll say oh it used to be hippos okay. Okay come on give me a break. That doesn't matter even if it were to. It's irrelevant. They are highly sensitive. That's the word you hear used right sent and Yup but this one just real I just met Dr Blackhall in Florida goes well you know. That's really true. Oh it's also sharks by the way no one can figure out what's going on with sharks. I mean the intelligence. Well they eat everything. Well Yeah so do we. But that doesn't mean they're not unintelligent. They're not just brute brutes with teeth we keep pushing these creatures off so or won't let us push her away right title. It's too obvious I've got a picture I should send you which I shared with my colleagues here. Jeff Foster's wife Katie when they were in Kentucky Island about stock they were taken by the Russian mafia to a local See Circus where they have seen animals in big tanks and the picture you see is Katie foster whose little over seven months pregnant standing a few feet away from the edge of a tank and But a foot and a half back from the edge of the tank is a Beluga whale about halfway out of the water sitting standing there looking right at her and she said I could feel it's echo-location in my beatty was moving around. It's an amazing photograph. The Beluga was talking to her. Baby can you. What what the lumbar asking people to do what? They're replaced some yet listeners. To try and try to on this is what I would suggest. I'm I mean the most the most single most important thing that the general public in the saline she can do is to lean into the issue in every way they can possibly imagine of the tribal collective tribal efforts to increase the number of salmon in the salish. Easy hatchery. Salmon Wild Wild Salmon Hatchery. Salmon Treaty Fish. People confuse hatchery salmon with farm salmon. They're not the same thing so we need more salmon. We need more. SALMON HABITAT THE TAP. Definitely we need more fish. The tribal fishermen need more fish killer. Whales need more fish the most important thing a person can do right now. I think anyway other than stay aware of the issue. Stay aware of the issue. We have a great website that has information on it but also make it very clear to local. Oh and a statewide officials you want more. Salmon including hatchery fish in our waters. And you want it now. Six Dot Org. It's worth a look look jammed in there perfect. Then he's so much for doing this. Is that you bet my pleasure all right.

"Greg Scruggs journalists based in Seattle, who's on the line. Now tennis more about this story about what's happen to this wail. Certainly well there, there's two southern resident, orca or killer whales that ply the waters of the Salish sea, the waterway between Seattle and Vancouver who are in dire straits. One of them a mother birth decaf in late July. The calf died shortly after childbirth, and she has been carrying it around on her sin ever since which has caused her to struggle to keep up with her pod. So marine biologists or worried about her health me. Meanwhile, another female orca is was discovered a Macy, aided and currently marine biologists and local digits digits leaders are coming up with a plan to feed the orca on the fly from the open water with wild fish, and these are endangered species only seventy. Five of them are left in the Pacific Ocean are you can see why both of those stories would attract a lot of attention concern from people in the, but it's also prompted the state governor in Washington to set up a task force. That's correct the the orca is something of a symbol of the state in the region and as an endangered species. I don't think anybody wants to to a want its extinction to occur on their watch. So governor Jay Inslee possible twenty twenty presidential candidate has convened an orca recovery taskforce that's meeting at this very moment actually to come up with some possible solutions to increase the runs of wild salmon that are the staple of the orca. Diet. No you. You mentioned a possible. Twenty twenty presidential candidate is, is there a sense they're trying to Mark out some Huckabee coalition, some some sort of difference between him and other potential candidates by concentrating so much on this, you lie this? Absolutely. He, he's clearly positioning himself to run as the environmental candidate or if not for the presidency than EPA or some kind of cabinet position with an environmental focus. His signature issue in Washington state has been climate change, and I think that the orca issue fits neatly in that environmental portfolio. You mentioned this task force to report later. This year has been talk about things like trying to Ulta boat traffic. Where boats are sharing the waters with the orcas, but then marine biologists saying that, actually, you need long term solutions in that politicians usually aren't keen on long term solutions because they're complex and the didn't get them votes. That's correct. And they're expensive. The wild salmon spawn in the rivers of the Pacific northwest, and then go out to see where they live in our ultimately eaten by orcas among other animals. And those spawning grounds have been blocked repeatedly over the century by the construction of major hydroelectric dams along the Columbia River basin, as well as simple roadways Kasich, crossing small streams and Brooks where salmon might spawn. So the state of Washington is now on the hook after a recent US supreme court decision to replace every covert the tunnel that would go under roadway, where crosses a stream to allow fish passage, and that's an estimated cau-. Cost of three point, seven billion dollars. Meanwhile activists have been calling for decades to tear down several of the least performing dams on the snake river, which feeds into the Columbia and which have the most potential to provide salmon habitat. And there is some hope that the orca international phenomenon might help their cause. Now you mentioned before the in the mind of the the governor. This is a way of positioning himself, oh, for his own political ambitions at the moment, the stories attracting attention and media coverage, and that applies political pressure. But when that meteor attention fades as it inevitably will the those a chance the impetus to act could fade with it. That's absolutely true..
