"Firefighters, police nurses etcetera, and they could do that with the teachers also going on Tuesday if their hybrid and not in person on Wednesday if they feel bad this after effects that would be appropriate. They could do that fast enough. But there's also a lot of teachers who I think just as the rift within the population at large, who were just not convinced. At this point. I talked about that last night. Now I got my vaccination last week. I hope you've had or you will have your soon But what do you do Know I'm 71. I'm on my second round of cancer. I can't find one.

Well, I wish you the best of luck. Anyone who's dealing with with with cancer. I My heart goes out to you. And I mean that Frank. Frankly, you know, I'm probably at risk if if if I ever exposed, But I'm not. I spend my day at home. No, I just know, I know. But you above all amongst others. Anyone who's dealing at your age with one something like that. And you know you well. Over the age of 65. No, no. I mean, what I'm saying is, you're now you now are in play for the for the shot. Irrespective of what else you're dealing with. So the point that Basically trying to make my point. I don't mind if you just get it ahead of me, and that may be happening because there were bigger. Better respond me to say where to go into a building. Political question is first of all, it takes a couple of weeks for The shot's too really, Yes. Full protection is I understand it, And there are some teachers who have Physical conditions, asthma and others. People who are allergic s. So it's not as if every T shirt wants the vaccination, which is another complication, which is another reason why I think that maybe it's not a bad idea to say Hey, look, we'll reach herd immunity, maybe sometime this summer. And it's miss started new in September, But that's that's a story for another day. Look, representative Thank you for your service, Both as a teacher on now is a member of the Legislature.

Medtech Goes Virtual at Osso VR
"Welcome to the tech talk pond caps. This is your host farro. And i'm very excited to have justin. Ceo of also be with us today. The role of virtual reality is pushing past traditional gaming into industrial applications. And also vr. Julie front of this forging a fascinating tap into the world of medical training and education. Jackson brings a particularly unique background as a gamer. A physician and now melting various interests as an entrepreneur justin. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for having me well great. This is such a fascinating topic like probably many people listening you know. I've been a part of many training laps from cadavers to bone models and beyond and and you kind of feel delimitations when you've been in those settings it can be wildly inefficient and face serious limitations in terms of how scalable measurable of the training is so it just feels you know incredibly relevant and timely Particularly today is we Enter situations that are ever more remote That osa vr's really aiming to change a lot of that so so maybe to get started here you can give listeners an overview of really how you're bringing virtual reality into surgical training and assessment and we'll jump into it from their great. It really starts with my personal career journey and the problems that i experienced firsthand so like you said i originally started out in the world of gaming i was studying computer science and had the opportunity to work at activision and i got interested in healthcare because of a sick family member and i started to wonder if there was way to software and technology to help people instead of just entertainment So pivoted to medical engineering with the golden ben healthcare technology. But i didn't really know how to get started with invention and i was discussing this with a mentor when he told me. If you wanna invent something you need to understand the problem you're trying to i. And he felt that the best way to understand. Medical problems was to be a doctor and be on the front lines taking care of patients and seeing what works. And what doesn't so. I took his advice very literally. He helped me get into medical school. Ucla and then i stayed there to do my surgery training which is really where i started noticing a big problem which is how we train and assess our healthcare professionals with their technical skills like surgery and i would be in procedure after procedure at these top hospitals. Where sometimes people would say. Hey just scrub out. And google what to do or stock. We need to find an instruction manual or youtube video and to me. It kind of raised an eyebrow or two and what i noticed that was going on was really three core three dynamics. The first is that there's too much to learn so we're victims of our own success in a way. Accelerating science and technology the work that you and i do massively expanding. The library of procedures that healthcare professionals are expected to know how to do in a moment's notice as sort of an extreme example. I always tell the story how one day i was called to the zoo to operate on a guerilla not knowing anything about girl anatomy or girl as and that was a really interesting experience but just highlights how on any given day. You really don't know what you're going to deal with as a doctor or healthcare professional for that matter. The second part of the problem is that surgery is getting more complicated. Newer devices like robotics navigation minimally invasive techniques have longer learning curve so instead of ten to twenty cases. You're looking more like fifty to a hundred so of magnitude and then the final thing and most people don't know this outside of healthcare but there's little to no assessment of technical skills that takes place for surgeons and in health care. This is starting to change. But in general there's minimal also in my career as a surgeon. I still practice on weekends. I've only been assessed. One time i was interviewing for residency spot. Now's asked to play the board game. Operation and to remove a plastic piece without buzzing so it was basically seeing all of this firsthand and also having background and game development that i got introduced a virtual reality very early in its development and immediately recognized its ability to solve this problem. You can use it anytime and anywhere. You can train on any procedure. You can use your hands in a realistic way. You can train remotely train as a team and then you can get objective assessment. And so that's really how the concept for vr was born and win. Oh severe got started. Which october two thousand sixteen. We were really in a state where the practices that we were doing. In terms of training and assessment were unsustainable so the american association of medical colleges estimated. We're going to be over. One hundred thousand. Healthcare providers short within a decade thirty one percent of graduating residents after fourteen years of education could not operate without supervision and required additional years of training and lower skilled surgeons had five times higher mortality rates than higher skilled counterparts as reported by the new england journal of medicine and so we are already were on sort of a pretty bad path and then you throw covert in the mix as you mentioned and everything just got accelerated and so the main way especially after. We're done with our formal training and residency and fellowship as surgeons that we practice are as you mentioned at in-person events courses and conferences often sometimes with hundreds of thousands of people. So that's something that is very difficult to impossible to do right now. And we don't really know what the future is gonna look like the so called new normal. So that's where we've seen. Interest really skyrocket in the ability to train remotely without needing to be physically present with others on these new emerging medical technologies and procedures
Latest jobless numbers and the state of the economy facing the Biden administration
"Reported that another 709,000 Americans applied for first time unemployment benefits last week. That's a lower number than many economists had expected. But eight months into the pandemic, it's still huge. And it didn't to that. Nearly 300,000 people applied last week for special Cares. Act benefits that, for instance, Help the self employed. The jobless numbers come his corner virus case numbers continue to hit record levels and as one of President elect Joe Biden's covert advisors is is floating floating the the idea idea of of a a 4 4 to to 6 6 week week shutdown shutdown to to ultimately ultimately help help the the economy economy with with money money to to help help individuals individuals and and government. government. Let's Let's bring bring in in NPR NPR chief chief economics economics correspondent correspondent Scott Horsley. Hi Scott could be with you, Robin and let's listen to a little of Biden Covert divisor Dr Michael Osa home who spoke with Yahoo finance last night and spoke about the shutdown. Let's listen. We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages lost wages for individual workers for losses to small companies to medium sized companies. Or city States County governments. We could do all of that. If we did that. Then we could lock down for 4 to 6 weeks, and if we did, that we could drive the numbers down. Scott does that surprise you to hear that coming from a Biden advisor just a week after the election, which President Trump accused bind of wanting to shut down the economy? Well, you know, Biden did say back in August that he would follow the advice of scientific experts if they recommended stricter limits on economic activity. That's in contrast to President Trump, who has often ignored scientific advice and his push to rapidly reopened businesses and schools, a Napro church that the president has stuck with even after he and his wife and a lot of key White House staffers contracted the virus. But it's not clear that AH lot of Biden Advisors feel that way. Anthony Fauci was on television this morning, saying he's not leaning towards a shut down, He says there's no appetite for it. He thinks there's more targeted measures that could be taken. Another Biden advisor has said. It's It's like a dimmer switch. It's not on off, you know, binary thing. Keep in mind. We we've got. You know, more than two months before President elect Biden will be in control of this, and in the meantime, we are in a world of hurt when it comes to this. This spread. I mean, the numbers are are really frightening. Yeah, we'll also meantime there's a lot of different definitions of what a shutdown is in some states. Stores. Restaurants were ordered closed. Clothes and others. You know, people are told, you know, stay at home, only go out if it's essential for you to do that. But even putting that aside, can bite and get this relief that Astra home was talking about without the Senate. Uh, hard to do hard to do something of that magnitude without Senate help. Now there is certainly in a room within within the credit markets for the federal government to borrow that kind of money we're talking about. Mitch McConnell has been talking about at least ah limited relief package. But certainly the kind of aid that would that would be associated with. That sort of shutdown would would require Senate buy in Yeah. No, we have around a million people looking for jobless benefits last week. But also last week we heard the national unemployment rate dropped last month to 6.9% Square that for us Yeah, it's it's a little hard to square that. It's encouraging certainly that the unemployment rate fell as low as it did in October and it and it felt for the right reasons or it fell even as more people were coming into the job market. Sometimes we see the unemployment rate dropped because people are leaving the job market. That's not what happened last month, so that's certainly encouraging. But we also know that we're only about 54% of the way towards recovering the 22 million jobs that were lost in the spring time. And at the same time with this new spike in Corona virus infections, we're going to see probably more businesses closing their doors, at least temporarily, more people being laid off as you mentioned a million or so People applied for new unemployment benefits. Just last week, we've got 21 million people receiving some form of unemployment relief as of late October. Importantly, about 13.5 million of those are getting benefits under that cares act that are set to expire at the end of December. So at a minimum, Congress is going to have to do something to extend those emergency benefits that were passed back in the springtime. You're gonna have millions of Americans suddenly having their lifeline cut off at the end of the year real briefly. Any

"osa" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"J. Just when you think a story can't get weirder, it does now What is going on in in Wauwatosa has been an absolute in my opinion travesty for the last couple months, and it's happened with the blessing of the mayor. It's happened with the tacit support of the fire and police commission out there. And it's happened with the overt support members of the Common Council. We all know the story. There's AH, There's a Wauwatosa Police officer's name is Joseph MENSA. He's black, and I always just mention that because it takes the racial element of the story. In the last five years, he has been involved in three separate shootings. The first to have been thoroughly investigated by locals and federal authorities, and they found to be justified. 1st 1 was a guy who was attacking officer MENSA with a sort that the 2nd 1 with somebody who was in like a parking lot wall with Kosa had a loaded hand gun next to him, apparently reached for the gun officer MENSA shot. The third situation happened in February. Security guards had lost control of the situation in Mayfair. They called the police There's a 17 year old who apparently was according to the police in possession of a stolen handgun, and he fired it at the police, including Officer MENSA. Officer MENSA returned fire Killed Kit Unfortunate story, but The family. Of the 17 year old maintains that didn't have a gun didn't shoot. Okay, Wallet, Cosa Police have said. They are very confident that officer mince is going to be clear, All right, But the matter has been under investigation for months and months. I don't know why the district attorney is dragging his feet, but that's another story here. But regardless even though There is no basis at least this time for finding any wrongdoing. You've had the mop, and it's a small number of people who have demanded that officer Mintz would be charged. They've demanded that he be fired. They've made numerous attempts to close down Mayfair and have succeeded. They've been allowed to do that, because the police department's essentially been ordered to stand down. And they've been conducting these loud, violent these loud protests demanding all this action against Officer mints that that is the backdrop of this So what happens over the weekend is the mop and we're not talking about hundreds or thousands of people were talking about the usual suspects and in it's like 50 or 60 people who were doing some of these tactics in Milwaukee, and we're allowed to get away with them. So they decide they're going to go out to that. The place where officer mental lives with his His girlfriend in Wallich Osa. Now beforehand, there's all these fit. There's Facebook stuff with some of the protest organizers there at this target store, and they're buying tons of toilet paper. So the idea is, we're going to go out to this house. And we're going to. We're going toe toilet paper that house and if you watch videos of this, it's it's just It's just amazing because there's videos of this yellow is people with these rolls of toilet paper. They're throwing toilet paper into the trees and things like that. It's it's like I don't know a cheerleader initiation in for a freshman cheerleader who's made the team in high school, But these air supposedly adults who are out there in their screaming and they're trespassing on the property, etcetera, etcetera. A couple of these people come armed to this. You do not come armed to a peaceful protest. I'm sorry, but but they're just they. What's happened is you have these protesters that were allowed to do this outside of former Chief morale is his house. They've been allowed to just do this. They've been allowed to close down Mayfair Mall in the wallet. Toast. Authorities have not done anything about them. So they're more and more emboldened. So the story that the police Tel Is that what happens is you've got all these people that are running onto the his property there. Throw in the toilet paper. They're screaming. They're chanting, etcetera. He goes out to engage them and try to calm them down at which point in time, he says. Officer MENSA says he's attacked and somebody Somebody ends up firing a shotgun blast through his back door. All right, brings us to state representative David Bowie, who has been on the scene and a lot of these thieves different protests. Rohan, who admits he was there. But he didn't see the shooting. He goes on TV. And he says, Well, I'm looking at this story in today's, T and J for that officer ments that came out with a level of aggression that did not match any of the actions of the folks that were there. By the way, there are videos. You could see all these people running in there throwing stuff and they're screaming and they're yelling. People were there to advocate for changes What Bowen says the same way they've done it. For the last 70 days, Police say about 60 people surrounded the property and vandalized it and his men to try to talk to the crowd. He was physically assaulted before someone fired a shot at the back door. Um Bowen, who says it was Joseph MENSA that decided to pull the trigger on somebody else's firearm. According to Bowen, who acknowledges he was there but says he didn't see this. MENSA took somebody else's shotgun, released the safety and pulled the trigger and shot him still shut the door himself. You just You can't make this stuff up. Bowen says he didn't see the actual shooting, but claims to know people. He who who did, he said. What he did see was this before men trying to sic his dog on the protesters and him used pepper spray on them all in response to the protesters throwing toilet paper. All right now, First of all, the Wauwatosa place is going to be coming out with a statement. But they've essentially said that that what with the state representatives saying really doesn't hold water. They're going to go into all the details. If you watch the video of this, it's very apparent that you have a group that is completely And totally out of control, and I don't know. I mean, I started off as a federal prosecutor. The idea that somebody goes out right? Somebody's brought a shotgun to a peaceful protest, and the target of the protest is going to I don't know removed, take off the safety and pulled the trigger on that other person. Shotgun seems to be a bit of a stretch, but that's that's not really the aspect of this, that that kind of caught my attention. At some point in time. You would hope that elected officials Would act with a degree of maturity. You would expect that people who are elected to office would I don't know, have more impulse control than that of a fruit fly. You would expect that people who are elected to office, which would at least try to pretend to be the grown ups in the room. So if you watch some of the Facebook stuff that was out there, and this is again it's fueled by social media. You have some of these activists there at the target. We're buying toilet paper. We wait, Wait till you see what's next. We're gonna convict boy over here. All right, so they're going out and I think everybody would agree. That whether the intention Wass to beat up Officer MENSA and blow a shotgun round through his back door that the intention was we're going to go out to this private residential house and we're going to take silly string and retake toilet paper and we're going to. We're going to tp the house and we're going to just run all over the property that that's what we're going to do in the name of peaceful protest. All right. So everybody acknowledged, is that they were out there to vandalize the house, right. Everybody acknowledges that and this state representative David Bowen. He's out there with him. Okay, let's let's put aside that the shooting and all that sort of stuff. I mean violence or not. What is a state representative? Do it be doing there in the first place? I mean, most people Even state representatives learned to stop toilet papering houses after their junior year in high school, And yet that that's what's going on out there and get a I think I think once the whole details of.
20 Minutes With The Founder of Hyperice
"Any athlete understands recovery is essential an arguably just as important as the workload itself to achieve peak performance in recent years even among amateur athletes, we've seen a growth and acceptance to what's the necessity of taking the time to really focus on recovery. But what has actually entail for one year muscles require time rest and particularly plenty of sleet repair and grow, but taking the time for active recovery such as stretching. And Foam Rolling Yoga also play a large role in keeping the blood flowing and helping rebuild from intense physical activity. You're listening to twenty minutes fitness and I'm your host Martin caster twenty minutes fit is partly powered by shape scaled up and three d body scan that visualizes your body composition photo realistic three in recent years technology has rudy started to supercharge the fear of active recovery there methods such as icing cryotherapy. Percussion therapy also commonly referred to as massage guns, compression therapy. All the way to infrared sauna have been long used by various. Bro Athletes for recovery for today's show, we've invited highs founder and CEO. Anthony, cats hi FIS has been one of the leaders in the field is known for its iconic products such as the hype vote massage gone the Viper vibrating foam roller as well as the compression sleeves their products have. been used early on by NBA stop there such as Lebron James and the late Kobe. Bryant and today there aren't they use by pros and all the major us. Leaks the English premier league as well as Olympic athletes. We chat more about how he first got started with icebox neoprene and also take a deeper dive into the science and also some of the best practices behind some of these recovery methods and devices. Hi Anthony I'm excited to have you on the show today. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself to kick things off? Yeah. So my name's anthony cats on founder pipe price. I founded the company about ten years ago it started out really just as an arm project like I was before this I worked in education was a high school teacher I was married to professional. Athletes and I was still really active and I still play sports and was sort of looking for ways to improve my body and sort of slow the aging process and I started my by started kinda get more soar after do things and you kind of start to see like the wear and tear you know grown up in the in the Dark Ages fitness in the ninety S. People used to basically do bodybuilding it wasn't very functional and that control my body in in. So I start looking at like, what would it winter pro athletes doing? You know because obviously they put the biggest premium on. Their bodies and sort of the new kind of things if there was anything new that they were doing that I can adopt and when I did sort of the research on, it was funny like the word recovery didn't really even a quiet sports like that. We use it now and there's a category now but they're back then. You know recovery meant like alcohol recovery or something you know. It didn't mean the same and so the industry was really dominated by like sort of these like medical device companies that would make products that would live in athletic training room for in professional sports and mostly what guys were doing for like you know just. To recover faster faster was was ice was ice tubs. Getting, getting a cold tubs and then, and then they were icing their joints and then if you getting a massage in athletes paper massage and stuff, and that was kind of that was kind of what the recovery will look like in two, thousand ten and so I figured okay well, you know if you can't really market a cold tub but athletes are icing their joints every day and they were doing it with plastic bags and ace route or Fight in every single day. Yeah. It's really wasteful and just like you know it's just not really convenient leaks in you know Dallas is kind of what they were doing. So it Kinda struck me and around this time two, thousand ten. So beats by DRE was relatively new. You know they debuted at the two thousand, eight Olympics and the Osa basketball guys were wearing them kind of adopted this idea that you if someone wearing something right and you know if I could make something that was good enough for like pro athletes to wear that people would see it on them and because it's on their body because it would be like wearing potentially like wearing them, you know on the sidelines or Photos, in your starting, it was Kinda before instagram. So it wasn't really the access to like the behind the scenes of what these guys do is not really the same level of now because I feel now we have a much better window into what what sort of the athletes are famous people do in their you know when the camera's not on. This kind of struck me. If there was a documentary called the last dance about Michael Jordan and it was showing how different famous then where he was the most famous person in the world and he'd get off the team bus and they would just be like a thousand people waiting at the hotel just like watch him walk in the door and we don't need to do that anymore because now everyone has we see what people do in the cameras. And we have twitter, right? Yeah and so people and and then there's way more content right? So there's just way more content of like, okay. What is sort of what is an athlete? Do? They're not court in got used to be pretty mysterious people in an intriguing so I figured that if I could make an icing product because athletes have to is every day people see maybe what sort of kind of catch on A in obviously not a school would beat because it's music that's universal but I still felt like young athletes might adopt it. So I had the idea to make like a really cool looking is compression device, and so I started researching therapy. The. Compression was import element of it and I had. A friend of mine who's a college basketball coach was regularly working out with Kobe Bryant and in Kobe was known as the biggest like that. He he is more than anybody and there was articles well-documented about how he really took care of his body. So I thought if I could make a prototype and I could show it to him and maybe you know maybe get into weirder sort of my thinking and I showed it to them I. so I literally was cutting up wetsuits and going into like wetsuit factory's GonNa live in a beach community southern California. So like there's some of the old Lexi factories that are still around back then so I was kinda compression sleeves and then taking ice bags from like you know from like rite aid or whatever, and and and just kind of like putting them together these compression sleeves. Trying to make something and you know he was really receptive to the idea that there could be a product that would make more efficient and it would actually look not just be so wasteful. So I a couple times in he kind of gave me some really good criticism that was constructive and what I realized like this can't be an art project like this is not how businesses have to like if I'm. GonNa do what I gotta do it. Right. So I gotta go get like. So I was calling manufacturing companies and it was during the recession and people weren't really interested in talking about no experience at all and just sort of this but one company believed like, okay. I kind of had proved that I was like interacting with Koby in the disciplinary doing for him and they kind of just took a flyer on. Maybe we'll try helping sort of developed sort of come the extra separable and so took about a year I. Got I, finally convinced him to do it. We took about a year to kind of develop the product properly I had the idea to put an air release valve at is bag because when ice melts, it creates like air pocket in compression doesn't work because it blocks a compression. So if You have a button that releases the air. The compression always makes contact with the ice and then you get your eyes compression therapy and that's that's the whole idea behind it was that I would watch guys ice and then I would see these like there's a big air bubbles forum.

Interview with Coach of WTA Top 20 Maria Sakkari
"Welcome to a milestone episode fifty of the Functional Tennis podcast. I'm Fabio Molly your host and this week we are speaking to one of the youngest coaches. The youngest coach on the professional tour Tom Hale. Tom Is the current coach of the Greek Maria, Sakari who is currently twenty in the world. Tom Tells all about his early days of tennis with his family relocated to IMG in Florida from the UK about training at IMG, and then onto his college scholarship pepperdine on eventually moving into the coach. Coach and world and how he got into coaching world. It's a fascinating fun story, and it's great to get inside the head of pro. Tour coaches before we get started especial thanks to our PODCAST, sponsors head who make our favorite rackets here at functional tennis okay. Here we go. Let's hear Tom. Story Hi Tom. Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Thank you for having me. Great Avenue Board couch to speak to learn a bit of orbit. You have your such a young coach working with some. Some great players so tell before we get started. How has locked and being for you? Do you work with Maria carry has stopped being the communication on what she's working on. And all that side tanks. Yes, so I've honestly lost track of the days of what exactly I actually went into lockdown. As soon as I flew back from Indian wealth. That was a little bit before the official down in the UK. so I've been in lockdown for a while from Maria I think Greece. Greece Osa went into lockdown at around the same time as the UK it was only around two weeks ago where she actually started practicing again so I'd say kind of the way I was. It was more just kind of motivation for the last eight weeks and I know everyone's kind of going through the same Maria like. Let's just kind of take it one day at a time. We don't know when the toll is GONNA be returning Trans Focus on fitness home workouts. Do some sort of. The strategic videos things like that, but it's also. It's very difficult. I think at the same time mostly. Just having rest is good. I think players can get burnt out in the season so I honestly feel like the rest is perfectly fine. Marie actually started training again a couple of weeks ago. So now I'm not able to more of a tennis coach. You know planning the practices. In the UK I get out degrees to to help the. We have a hitting. You just kind of running through the program that I'm setting hone I. Think the a soon as she's been able to get back on court. Motivation is obviously increasing. It's still difficult because I. Don't think anybody has any idea of when tournaments are going to return. It's a tough tough times. Everyone the I think the fact that she's on call is is definitely helping as the, neither it's I've just been doing some homework outs some fitness trying to work on like a few little side projects that to be honest. I'm enjoying the timing because. Because my family because I'm on the road last last year on the road for forty two weeks in the year, so just to be able to spend more than two weeks in a row. My family I'm really trying to like make the most of that. Twelve forty two weeks is a lot and plus we're going to just talk a bit about your younger days. How you got into tennis moves to states. You've been away from your family for a long time. Now he has an factually I was I went to Orange Jakarta me when I was ten Ashleigh my family moved out with me, so I was within to. My family sacrificed lots in a even, though has kind of been all around the world. They have been with me. Notice the time. It's only really kind of skin since university when I went to tech when I kind of been a little bit more on my own. So the kind of it's kind of been kind the last I'd say seven years when I kind of maybe had a week with my parents here two weeks task three weeks like three weeks is like Tracy's, and that's like. The off season period. That's the most I get. That I'd say when I was like a junior and playing. I was lucky that my parents sacrificed law and Wherever I was training they. Relocated stop plays the that of makes it a lot easier when you relocate halfway across the world. What was it like moved? ten-year-old of IMG was like you just like I just WanNa be a pro tennis player and I need to be here. Was that decision you made? You told your parents I need to get over there or was that something that they came to you with the kind of good question. Because I remember when I was younger, I was always debating between a full tennis, I was very good. And I I remember having a fight with my my code because I like to play up front score. The goals kind of be like you know the one everybody loves. To strike exactly, and and then he we had some some problem in defense and I had play one game as a defender. Although it's a crew school position in football. US to to a ten year old. I'm just kind of just the back. Just waging I had I was playing on a very good team so I actually didn't have to do too much and I wanted to be kind of Indiaction, so that kind of slowly lost my. With the football, the sport I was playing at the time was also tennis and. I remember I would have problems of my school. They wouldn't allow me enough time to to go out to school to practice my tennis play football and I got kind of a stage I was dying to take. My parents actually really enjoy tennis I. I would love to try and become a professional, and I think my parents they. I, mean they. They battled with the schools to try and see if they could get me an extra hour alto, instead of doing he at school I could go, and do you know get some tennis lessons and it just? It proved to be too difficult. At the club that I was training at. K., Salahuddin at the time I'd actually been on a few camps to I N G Academy in Florida with the Celada and kind of junior program about ten fifteen years ago, there was some you know great. Junior junior players in the Birmingham area and I I just kind of under that kind of saints. My parents would be amazing if I could go train. IMG tennis would be so much better. and you know my parents took massive sacrifice, and and you know they let me. They gave me an opportunity to go and do it, and honestly it was the best decision. I made some tennis around that age at ten years old.
Causality 101 with Robert Ness
"I am on the line with Robert Osa Zoa Ness Robert is a machine learning research engineer at Gammel on and an instructor at northeastern North Eastern University Robert and I met at the last nerves conference where he had an accepted poster session around his paper integrating hitting Markov processes with structural. Causal Modeling Enables counterfactual inference in complex systems which he also presented at the black doc in a in a workshop This kicked off a bunch of great conversations between the two of US leading ultimately to collaboration. That we'll talk a little bit about in this conversation. Robert thanks so much for joining me on the Tuomo. Ai podcast thanks for having me Sam. You're injured us. It makes me think I should've. It came up with more clever name for that paper. You know what a lot of papers we talk about on. This show are quite the mouthful so yours is no exception exception Maybe someone will build a model. You know that. seeks to determine a inverse correlation or correlation between the lengthiness papers the title and It's number of citations or something like that. Let's set that aside for now and have you spent a few minutes introducing yourself. How did you get started in machine learning what piqued your interest You know ultimately will be spending a lot of time here talking about causality. How did you come to Become interested in that you know my path to machine learning was a bit. I'd say unconventional I started off working In Asia Tanna specifically I was the degree at Hopkins in International Studies and was planning adding to pursue a degree in economic In economics focusing on economic development I got involved with some Internet companies out in Beijing That got me into coding. And database is in data in general and I decided I was interested in in debt in that and went to apply for programs in statistics. Particularly with a focus on computational statistics I back to the states came back to the states went to Purdue University to do my PhD in stats My PhD work was on causal. Inference graphical models Basically how to learn causal models from data particularly in the context of systems systems biology and from then after I graduated I went to trade industry. Got It now. We hear very frequently folks refer to their path into machine learning as unconventional are indirect In your case you came into an interesting gaming net leads you to apply live for Or into Grad School for statistic. What was that particular connection really? It's when you're on the back end of an APP and you're looking at the data and you're realizing that there's a lot of insights to be had if only we could model this data and turn it into some service on the front end Um I realized I mean this was you know people had were just kinda starting to talk about data science and then Hell Varian had just recently came out and said I said that's the districts is the new sexiest will. I can't remember the exact quote was pick your Metaphor Metaphor New Black statistics is the new. I don't know Rockstar and so And Yeah that's that's kind of why pivoted to do the two stats in machine. Learning I guess through stats view. May people might argue whether or not stats machine. Learning Are same thing. Might the problems that I was working on my PhD or using Publicity graphical models so which has strong roots in artificial intelligence. So that was my introduction machine learning. Yeah one of the things that's come up in our conversations about causality and The work that you're doing with your courses is the idea that it historically talking about causality has been the you know the domain of statisticians and in Yeah folks like economists And that a lot of that conversation is inaccessible or isn't really tailored to do the needs of developers and data scientists machine learning engineers. I didn't realize all the time we were talking about that. That your background wasn't economics. You you have some of the exposure to the way that causality is has been traditionally kind of us and talked about. Maybe I guess I'll just use this as a segue to Kind of opening up the floor to to ask you. What how do you define causality? The interesting thing about causality may be part of why maybe is a challenging thing to deal with particularly for statisticians I would say is that. It's very difficult to talk about it without finding yourself having a philosophical conversation and you know so going you know this is something that fill in. What is the causality? These in that philosophers have been wrestling with through the ages. Right hume had has counterfactual definition initial possibility. That's you know a follows from being had a not happy would not have happened But you know philosophers going back to the Buddha all kind of take their stab at what is caused -ality so there's a different philosophical arguments for causality and what it means I think from a practical standpoint. What most people mean when they say? causal inference is. They mean the estimation of Causal Effects. So if you're safer example at a tech company and you want to run some kind of experiment about the about whether a feature will drive a click or some other key performance indicator or metric. You're asking you. Your experiment is essentially trying to get at the question of what is the causal effect of this feature on this outcome and you'll be using the assumptions and methods from Statistics to estimate assuming Air Assumptions are valid those causal effects. But when we've talked in machine learning where now hearing you know. So I hadn Europe's like you said This talk about having agents that can understand that. Causal Structure of the world and and that causes allergies essential from moving from system one system to cognition day Pearl was very preeminent. Causal inference researcher talks about causal reasoning in in terms of free will and the ability to understand Dan intention and so there are definitely definitely a lot of angles to tackle this question from the perspective of artificial intelligence is that you know people who are running experiments in facebook. Netflix are not really thinking about
The Legend of Pokou
"Are stories today highlights leader whose life was surrounded by legend magic. She overcame significant. Hardship stood up to an army and eventually established a new homeland. Let's let's talk about Queen. Pokou Poku was born around seventeen hundred likely in what's now Ghana to a noble family of the Ashanti People. They were a centuries old African tribe with roots dating back as far as the year thirteen hundred poku was the niece of. Oh say two known as has the greatest Ashanti King because the Ashanti monarchy was matrilineal Poku was included in the line of succession during his rule. Oh say to united in many smaller kingdoms into the larger Ashanti Empire when in seventeen eighteen he was ambushed and killed Howard passed onto poku brother their day. Calm during day Khan's rule who selected a husband an attempt to produce an heir. It didn't get pregnant. Who was quite brave? Leave one day when day Khan and the army were away from the Ashanti. Capital enemy troops ambushed the town and killed all the royal princesses except Recoup Kuku arranged for others to escape but decided to stay behind and defend the town however she cut the enemy. Warriors took her hostage. d-conn soon returned from war furious to discover the besieged capital. He appointed a warrior named Tano to lead Loku's rescue party. They successfully successfully defeated the enemy group and got poku back Tano and Poku then got married. The new couple had a baby boy together. The heir to the Ashanti anti thrown Dakin fell ill when Poku son was still only a baby so we attempted to appoint an older air but day. Cons choice was murdered by his rival. Who who hoped to seize the throne himself after killing the chosen heir? The rival tried to gain favor with Poku to secure his place on the throne but she refused to endorse him. He was determined to seize power regardless so poku left the shontae capital altogether to establish her own kingdom. She invited anyone anyone in the Ashanti Empire to come with her and many of the smaller kingdoms previously united by her uncle Osa to to decided to follow her to a new land. The story of Baku's peril filled adventure to a new land has been passed down in legend. For centuries in many ways echoes the story of Moses and the Hebrews escaped from Egypt and Pokou and her followers fled the capital city with the soldiers of the guy who wanted to be king on their trail. They had to navigate a treacherous jungle filled with snakes panthers and giant elephants many of them also fought illness through the hazardous journey coup and the fleeing subjects reached an impasse. Thank thank Komo River which was to deep and violent across. According to legend the group decided they had to make a sacrifice to the river gods in order to make the crossing crossing possible Poku that she would have to sacrifice something hugely important to her in order to save for people in anguish. She sacrificed her son to the river. Ever different versions of the legend claim. A variety of magical means helped Pokou and her people cross the river including an enormous tree bridge and the help of crocodiles and hippos regardless the refugees cross. The river narrowly escaping pursuit. When Poku Oku safe she cried Bali which means the child is dead because of this new group of settlers came to be called the bow? The the exodus from the Ashanti capital occurred sometime between seventeen thirty and seventeen fifty. Migration took the ballot into what's now Cote d'Ivoire their err poku conquered territory established a new homeland for her people. She was known as a leader and an expert mediator not long after establishing doing this new settlement around seventeen sixty folk who died per legacy lived on and in the years following her death. Ola Influence continued to grow
What is the Microbiome?
"Let's back up a little bit and talk about this whole thing of the microbiome because we we started with functional medicine. There wasn't the word microbiome but we still focus on normalizing the gut function. We talked about the four our program which is a restoration program for the gut and how that can help so many different diseases. But the microbiome is the sum total of all the organisms that we have in care around inside of us in that also can include Viruses can also include fungi. You know the ecosystem of the microbiome inside the body is like a rainforest and at some point. Some people's ecosystems are so disturbed. So messed up. This like napalm is hit your rainforest that's like a corn mono-crop. Yes so you've got this whole ecosystem bacteria it's been disturbed by all these new talked about C.. Sections anybody anybody accused lack of breastfeeding and so on and our diet also Plays a huge role in the growth of good or bad bacteria and you can feed it certain things and it makes it worse than other things and it makes it better so talk about that. Yeah so so. I always tell patients that when you're eating food you WANNA be choosing your food not just for you what you like. Your you know the things that are pleasurable for you but you also want be feeding the good bacteria and we talked earlier about the Ackerman Ms Sinophilia. That's a specific bacteria that is in the body and that you want to have on high levels and when we do the testing we can actually determine. Do you have high levels of it or do you have low levels or we have no levels are very low levels and there are certain foods which you can incorporate into your diet. Things like pomegranate and Baca and A case the case Uvira cranberries and things like that these are foods which are basically pre pre a prebiotics. And when you incorporate them into your diet you it's like praying miracle-gro grow and a garden they start to flourish. They start to take over and they help balance out the whole ecosystem. Yeah I think is one of the biggest advances in our thinking about God. We get probiotics and that'll fix it but you know you're giving like fifty billion is a lot right but you have it hundred trillion bacteria so it's like a drop in the ocean he's athlete and one of the big insights I had was actually from an experience I had last year where I develop colitis so long story but I had been sick for mold and I've told that story and I had had a recurrence of my gut because I had the C. Diff and that was kind of really messed me up and I check my stool and had really low levels of this ackerman SIA which has been linked linked to autoimmune disease linked to poor response to immunotherapy for cancer. It's billing two Cardi metabolic disease and diabetes. And I'm like WHOA. Oh this is not good so I started to research it and created this cocktail of cranberry Pomegranate Green Tea Keisha fiber products other products. And I took it and it literally. Within three weeks I went from full blown clients to completely normal perfect. Yeah and it was sort of a wakeup call for me. In which was you can't just get products you've got to feed the whole inner garden and what it likes is certain foods and likes all the polyphenols yes in the polyphenyls colorful dark rainbow color chemicals that are in plan foods certain plant whose have more of the berries and so forth. Absolutely your microbiome is depending on what you feed it. How you grow your inner garden depends hands on what you're eating and you can create a nasty garden with weeds and toxins and bad stuff and poisonous plants or you can create a really flourishing rich garden it it actually takes care of you and also the other thing that a lot of even physicians are not even aware of is that most of your immune system is got? Yeah yes so I mean I had one patient in particular particular who I saw. Who came in? It was a great story. She came in And she was Having a MS as their diagnosis she also have community autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis and she also had infertility and I did a a complete workup on her. She had Despite osas had had bacterial overgrowth also had sensitivity to gluten and had also some not a heavy now big level but some level of of Mercury in the body. So so I worked on a diet worked on You know both prebiotics and probiotics to clean up the gut got her completely of gluten and Lo and behold I guess what her multiple sclerosis went away. Amazing disappeared are not not to say that you all her medals out to not to say that all cases of multiple sclerosis this are due to that but there are many pathways to multiples. Close the door. Many pathways to Alzheimer's disease or any disease Aaron disease exactly because the body hit will manifest it in and only certain inflammatory pathways but and then ultimately she got off of her medications her. Ms To this day is in complete remission. She has no symptoms on nomads. And as the side effects you've got pregnant. The personalization of medicine is what functional. Medicine is all about. and that's really what's different here about. How are we practice medicine at the ultra wellness? Because we're looking at each person as an individual or creating personalized medicine and personalized health which is radically new way of thinking and we we just lump everybody with the same symptoms in the same categories. But it doesn't tell you anything about the cause and I always say just because you know the name of your disease. I mean you know what's wrong with you all right. And that's what we do too very detailed histories here through very advanced diagnostic testing. Look some of these things so the microbiomes ecosystem of bugs and our God. It's trillions of bacteria area. It outnumbers ourselves by ten to one outnumbers. DNA my one hundred one and it has been linked to everything from disease to cancer. Heart Disease Diabetes Obesity to autism to Alzheimer's. I mean the list goes on and
Jane's Hoya Tour
"I'll have gathered the Hoyas from all around my house and brought the here to take a look at the mall and to give you a guided tour just because most of them are up quite high to look at and talk about the same time so here we are with the hoyas choice and I have. I thought I had thirteen but I think actually two four six eight ten twelve. I actually think less forgotten one which is entirely possible that I have a dozen of these things. Let's Talk I the one that I've had the longest and that is my variegated Julia Canosa which well let's be fair. It's a shadow of its former self. If you listen to the Hoyer episode with Doc Chamberlain you will remember my Hoya. Canosa suffered a terrible fate. which was that a load? Some white completely white leaves to grow. There was a stem. The head completely white leaves on nothing else rather than judiciously. Cutting those off. I decided to leave them to grow. And it suddenly said the plot into a tailspin and I just about about one. She save a single cutting which I then replanted a poll. And this is what I've got now east. Not Dating Site Body's already flowered award and the single cutting has branched into two different stem cells looking reasonably good. Let's just describe this heuer. It's probably the most common hoyer that you see out there. What most people would call the wax clouds or wax flower? Eight Scott the standard luther. Relief that you'll be familiar with in the royal family. I don't exactly what variegation this Kovar is actually cooled by but it's the one with cream edges basically creamy white edges and a kind of a slight silvery splash in the center. The leaves are I would say fairly standard thickness. And they're tiny bit thought furry and it's a very attractive plant and I'm glad to say score really really well if I see any of those white leaves though the first thing I'm GonNa do is get rid of them because as I said before it was bad knees when this happened so this is doing pretty well now now. I think what I'm probably going to do with. This plant is taking cutting come spring because I would like it to push out a bit more have a bit more growth going on the part east during the classic thing. People worry about this but it really is totally normal for Hoyas and in fact many posit scramble and climb about which is putting hanging out completely bare stems with no leaves on them. I and you start to panic and think whereby leaves but what the parts doing really. Well I think it's what he's doing i. I think I've read this somewhere. But pops botanist can confirm this for me. They put out feelers to see whether it's a good place for them to grow and then once bats confirmed that they're happy that little extra ground they've colonized then they start putting up leave so they don't really waste any energy before expanding into new areas. What you'll also notice along the stem of the Hoyer this particular where on many others bumpy bits? which again can be a bit alarming? You might I think you've got scale but he's actually just adventitious roots which Tabu popout and then really sought to grow if they come across anything. That's route that's they can route into so this one's hanging so there's nothing to reach into. Those adventitious roots tend to say quite small. But they're not a problem just just waiting for the opportunity to route into something. So that's my hair. Canossa the flowers on this sort of Shell pink furry the thing that got me into Hoyas in the first place because just are so unusual gorgeous and they fly quite easily as I've already said so. Yep The flowers are great is the the foliage is great. It's a really lovely plant and if you have only one then on also is a good choice. It's easy to get hold of two which is not true of all who the WHO is. We're GONNA talk about today okay from the sublime to the ridiculous we're gonNA look at Hoya. Linear ours now. Now if you remember this specimen of mine mine came from James Wall as cutting when I visited his place. And it's done really well I'm going to take a lot of cuttings off this plot and yet it's still quite big and lush now. Relatively speaking given how long have had it. It is very very dry right now. I think I need to give this good water because it's starting to get that kind of very dull. Look that plants get when they are in need of some drinking and it's also quite like to pick up so I know that it is I plant and and this will be reported in the spring because I can see lots of routes coming through the bottom of the pulse. What I love about hoyle any are as well as suggests? The leaves are really unusual there about four centimeters long couple of inches long. I'd say and they look like run a beans or you don't call them Wanna beans in the. US been like a what you call runner beans in the US. I've forgotten green beans that look at me like green beans jeans and they're they're actually rolled in on themselves and you get a little grooved on the center and there were other softly. Furry they come out outs either side of the note and you get these long strings hanging down and they really do look very different from any other horror that you'll come across I guess stat. That adaptation is so that they can preserve water and this horrid doesn't like to be kept on the dry side we'll find with the stems on this one is that it does produce juice leave straight away unlike the con- Osa but it tends to grow stems until they get heavy enough to start trailing down so you end up with this effect. We've got kind of arms reaching up and then gradually they will drop down as the plant matures and they get long enough that they start to hang the flowers on this one. They tend to flower for me any way towards the end of the summer during autumn time and the flowers on this lovely scent which is comes into its own about seven o'clock in the evening this smell Eleni buttery mini smell really delicious and the flowers a really horrible. They are pure white and they tend to be visible among the clusters of leaves again. This is reason to have this plot hanging because it does look really great when viewed from below. I'm now this one in places like India and Nepal and it's not the easiest of course. I've never had any problems with it. But if you have a feeling that you and the person who gives the plant too much water you made strong with this one so just take care of the water inside and make sure it's really well drained but yeah. This is one of my absolute absolute favorites and would be without that particular one more talk about and that is where Matilda now. This is actually a hybrid. It's across between Serb hanes and we're con Osa and this one came to cutting. I can't remember who gave this to me. I think it was us on a UK. HOUSEPLANTS facebook group. But again if you are going to grow start off with and he wants in court easy to get going with I think Matilda Sabrina good choice. This plot has small roundish oval leaves with silver splashing on them. I mean it's hard degeneracy toys because the league shake dust change. I find that sometimes the leaf leaves can be quite elongated and then the ones quite oval and that changes us the leaf as a stem matures. This will hasn't flowered yet but I just love the look of it. It's it's actually desperately in need this. One of being trained around the hoops of I can really enjoy the foliage up close. The flight was on this. One looks very much like Canosa except the flowers are white and fuzzy rather than Pale pink and fuzzy according to winstrom unstained this flows early and often so on still waiting by flowers gonNA hoping that they will come fairly soon but even if it never flowered I think I would still be in love with this planet. Really really beautiful. I- propagated cutting of this using the hottest tub technique. Thanks to Sully Williams or for highlighting that brilliant technique for me. And it won't really well for this plant. The only thing is you end up with roots coming from every node. So what I would do. What is rooted is late on some compost and allow it to route? But it's really easy. Plant ICAGO wrong with this and apparently the scent is quite like Hokkaido. Sir I have never got any sense to all of my work so that's not very informative but I'm not worried about the scent. I think it is beautiful flowers. And that's quite enough for
Discussing Leading up to Breeder's Cup 2019 (With Scott Hazleton, Nick Luck, Gina Bryce, Frank Mirahmadi)
"Tasers plus i'm working came about ten years ago now i think it was wins and jato is still running goodyear to come i think she won the this stuff yeah and so i missed her agonizing defeat but yeah great to be back we mortar place kind of standing here thinking why do i live why do i live in the UK suv amen code and i i try to live here as much as i possibly can and you've been you've been stateside a ton the last several months skull and comparing notes as to how many days spent away from home this year i was beaten by you you will have someone nearly two hundred i think about one hundred twenty six months for me my very long suffering wife is just that if you need to pass assistant i'm happy to come along make the coffee whatever i'd say it's a pretty good gig you got going on out here on a day like today looking over the mountains perfect temperature top class horses cantering i you all is well with the world now and ideally from from here on in the next seventy two hours through saturday tonight get them all around safe and make this make this the the idyllic session that it should be the from from art lips god's ears as we say i wanted also to to the dubai experience right the last the last several years the the international i scott i mean lucky enough to where it we've got a royal ascot gina as well jeanine scott on the same royal ascot show now skull comes over and does a great job for fatigue as well then dubai and dubai together on on that show so yeah trips have been right i mean you can't get rid of me and to be honest with you our our our first encounter we always have we have this connection our first encounter which bad pinch is not here for this story because we're all together was the two thousand seven breeders cup at monmouth park it was my first big remote for HR TV it was was your first go second chauffeur ESPN yeah and it was lafitte lafitte was during the winter cycle presentations i show and we somehow not surprisingly found each other and managed to hang out more than a few times it was of course that week it was often oblique experience that we well saturday and sunday uh about friday and saturday but we're not talking about the weather though you're you guys were well the rain was what i call crying baby rain you think naturally has to stop but it never does danger this week that was is that was as frustrating a scenario as you'll ever going to have around racetrack it was gorgeous every single day that i got i got to meet scott hazelton think either third how i was blessed and we've not looked back since twelve years later here we are that was i i was there broadcasting for for me that was actually my first that was the first season of the show when i was alone was two thousand seven and broadcasting from from the from john heinz office that compound here and the show was four o'clock at that time four to seven so i was there all day and i basically ended up answering phones and helping people tickets and and really i was always met the days i that's one of my fondest memories let's get some let's get some thoughts and nick i always rely on you for international purposes however you've been covering all the lead ups so you know your opinions can go far beyond the the euro's but from an introductory stand point some of the horses this year that that are are kind of new and of course we had not a bayton switch but magical and up disappearing at the last minute and it was frustrating because she was ready to the sun aim she'd have been the marquee name as she'd been here given i welsh around last year and the season she's hiding she went on champions are champions weekend but she's not so on we go there isn't not substan- aim if you'd like to to hang the european challenge on but it scott some debt and there are plenty of hoses who legitimate i think probably the most interesting pair of horses is old persian and anthony van dyck see whether they can whether they can let down to bricks and mortar on the on the turf in the mile and a half race and whether they can expose any shortcomings in in bricks and mortar stamina i don't if you saw the clip on on twitter of me accosting chad yesterday it was a good natured exchange i said to my overcomplicating it he said you always complicate everything i think the the influence i was supposed to draw was that breaks it was just a good horse and i i think he'd be impervious to distance but i i think there's a dealer confidence in the ballydoyle camper van dyken can step up i think you'll have to step up a bit even though he's won a dobby and finish that in an irish champion stakes i think he needs another little step foot but they seem to think he's had the perfect preparation and he's by no means an afterthought they've had this race lined up for him since the summer and that always when we get to this juncture very often we've talked about horses that at the last set again they said oh let's go and and those horses invariably don't run well exactly so it's it's great that he's he ain't going great record in the race he's probably comparable to one one or two of his winners atn equivalent stage of their career he's he's legitimate and i can't seem finishing out of the out of the front path really i said to michelle when i was chatting to a yesterday on on the TV gee breakfast show and i'll say it again if old persian doesn't get any love from the batter's he's probably worth passing because on his full from your last year and his form for made on earlier this year a mile and a half on firm turf he's a he's a very good host but he does need to take a leap forward from the canadian run which was just okay even though he won the triple digit bar though did he not a one can rier you can run fast but just there wasn't much depth to the race fair enough for the work that i want to bring up to is a lou neck the ville de mar hicks runner because if desert encounter doesn't make that spectacular run at woodbine doesn't doesn't he show up here with a little bit of a little i'm chad i'm chairman of the desert encounter fan club only only a really ardent admirer of his exploits think he would have any kind of a show in anna breeders cup too so i think he's a show plan alaniz maybe he's honest horse who has proven that he's effective in north america but i think that's about us boulder cases i can make fair enough at an eugene you sort of perked up at the mention of his name all right yeah i actually agree with nick on the on the breeders cup turf but i just saw time christmas go past this morning on friday i think that's pretty amend as a bit of a lottery that race and they're coming down the hill and you want to get a good break and be drawn well and and get on with proceedings but the europeans quite well drawn in that race seems to be quite a few in with chances is one that's really so stamped his authority on the five furlongs sprint division at home it's a nice little horse his knee and actually when you see him go past he's not going to take the i really but i think he could be quite interesting and he's in a good spot there archie watson does really well with his juvenile he's bringing over a runner and band practice i think it's been joined in two so you'd expect him to had to be sharp and out and and another one with a with a chance but i think the juvenile houses some sometimes the race is that europeans can can occasionally pinch on the turf and there's a few interesting ones this year lucky though that with it being it's a different this year because this is only the second year of the juvenile turf sprint they had but they didn't it wasn't consecrated until she was able to race on the on the go a bit but having it around the band i think that the wesley horses have the advantage of their speed they out of the gate they get that position on the turn and then while you know it's it's game over it's not what you know the european i used to i think camario win if she breaks she's i know that's the that's the if i honestly think she's she couldn't it took a role of keeneland didn't that it took a rule of the stretch kaitlyn and then they're not gonna come back here i don't think we saw last year pledges hose just came out and blasted a multiple that was a different type of course it was it was i guess but i i don't know i think she wins if she breaks success good chances we'll drive drive yeah it's interesting they've taken a ali to wolverhampton to try and chain around the bend and get used to that because you know they you say they all going to encounter different different conditions today sir friday and they've only been running on the straight it's tough five gallons they've had to practice changing awesome getting out quickly and coming around a bend if you were there's there's one thing that unites ceos like a ali in the juvenile turf sprint and a host like anthony van dyke in turf is that this fixture has been on the top of their agenda since the summer so you're talking about hostess who are being specifically targeted at the breeders cup there's to die yet would be another one in the long race for fillies on the turf the to your own race on the tough and raja verion before she even one and finish second on an island in the moya he was saying i want to go to california with an east had some success with osa finishing placed in breeders cup races before they they have three hoses who have been typically targeted at this fixture right from the word go this year

Now, you know they've been working on that for a little while they're also making a crew capsule. And in jeopardy's those regarding Mars show this coming up this conference, he talks about some things, it's not only about space, some of the stuff that they talk about is about artificial intelligence machine. Learning robotics automation. And since Jeff owns Amazon, all of these things are super important to him what not only to him, but his businesses Amazon makes ungodly amounts of money. And they have to find ways to streamline that process. So Jeff will be speaking and other speakers will also be speaking about the importance of machine learning in the way that it will be optimizing businesses in the future. Now, Jeff said in a statement, we're at the beginning of a golden age of AI. Recent advancements have already led to invention that previously lived in the realm of science fiction.

So be ready for a lot of AI talk at this conference, and there will also be special guest in that special guest will be iron man, Robert Downey junior. I have no idea what he's going to be doing there. But he'll be there too. Probably talk about the I, maybe he'll talk about iron man, and how he became a hero to millions of people worldwide. And Amazon does a lot of AI stuff already. So this shouldn't be news to anybody. They have AWS, which is their servers Amazon, web services, they can host websites. They do a lot of things for apps. They host some of the biggest websites and apps in the world. So they're competing with Microsoft, and Google IBM in others who provide similar services, and they're going to be talking about innovation and interactive workshops, they'll be doing robotic demos.

Trump sticks with his threat to impose tariffs on Mexico
"Now donald trump is sticking with his threat of imposing a five percent time on mexico next week and tweet the u._s. president haitao to senate my not leader chuck schumer fisa jesting he's bluffing at the same time the mexican leader andress manuel lopez overdue has been more optimistic expressing hope that a compromise can be found well famo- own the booth trade story pretty bags u._s. politics editor kathleen hunter joins us this morning when he gets to speak to you kathleen the the mexican saying that hopeful the president note say much and the pay set down three tenths of one percent this morning i think maybe part of the optimism on mexico side comes from what we're seeing on capitol hill there's been a very strong push from republican lawmakers on capitol hill to try to essentially use legislative legislative vehicle to thwart trump's plans to impose these tariffs on mexico given that this is coming from the republican controlled senate obviously from trump's own party i think that indicates that you know whether or not whether trump likes it or not there could be the u._s. can be putting the brakes on these tariffs yeah but at the same time the president dismissing of the grand grondahl policy descend over mexico tariffs as food so how do you see this vulva catholic well i think you know trump is not necessarily known for his nose counting skills when it comes to you know figuring out where the votes are in capitol hill's yeah that's not i mean it's not as strong suit and so i think that somebody's i'm not surprised that he is pushing back on that but i don't know that that necessarily means if the votes aren't there we're seeing pretty widespread republicans support and i would imagine number of democrats if not all of them would side with the republicans they wouldn't even need that many republicans okay osa of course many fronts in the trade when it comes to china they've hit a small fine own foods joint venture in china and also move about iran us exports as the u._s. oversee concerned about this the more issues now between china and the u._s. definitely and i think one sort of upcoming event to watch over the weekend whether steven mnuchin in japan at the at the twenty with the whether he sits down with his chinese scattered counterpart and if there is any kind of official or you know on the sideline sort of meeting that could lay the groundwork for a broader deal when trump and g are expected to sit down later this month at the g twenty leaders summit and so i think that's what to watch next certainly it's getting more and more dicey as base go by it's surprising to see elizabeth warren in agreement with president trump on the donor kathleen is i think this is one of these instances where we almost kind of see the left the far the fringes of the left in the fringes of the right those extremes kind of kind of mean in the middle meeting around the other side or something and so that is a bit unusual but i think it's one of these issues where they're both kind of being consistent with their their framework and they're you know kind of prism of looking at monetary policy and so i think that that's in somebody's not surprising but a bit unusual yes yeah indeed says she's talked about calling for the dollah to be actively managed basically and she is she is a democrat candidate soy candidate for the democratic party but she is one of she's one of a big failed although this is quite an eye catching policies an absolutely and i think what we're seeing from folks like elizabeth warren who are in the democratic field but now consists of closest dozen candidate is really an attempt to distinguish themselves from the other candidates on so i think that that could be part of what's going on here in terms of at least the timing of this
Green, Warriors beat Blazers for 3-0 lead in West finals
"Curry. Pulls up three. Their largest lead of the series, trailblazers would lead by thirteen at half, but a huge third-quarter for Golden State. They kept poor get onto the fourth quarter lead by sets older brother. Hurry weaves into the front court circles back to the right wing against his brother clear. It out looney comes out high to set the screen goes the other way in for the tunnel ram lay today Steph Tori with thirty four three Golden State up a dozen their largest lead of the game. Steph curry would finish with the game. I thirty six the warriors rally again to beat the blazers this time a one ten ninety nine final. Golden State of three nothing series lead now for a post game extra and Amine, PJ Carlesimo called the game on ESPN radio one to ninety nine Golden State over Portland in comeback fashion once again in game three they come back from eighteen down in the second quarter. They were down thirteen at half time. And just like in game two they come all the way back in other warriors have a commanding three OSA. His lead in the conference final. I mean, there's so many players playing well for this team. I really believe at Golden State doesn't get credit for how good a defensive team. They are what they didn't third quarter. They just refused to let Damian Lillard C, J McCollum get a good look at the basket. They double team. They trapped him. They harassed him. And then when they turn them over came up with the defensive rebound, Draymond green was leading the fast break as he did all night and just ran right back down to blazers throats seventeen eighteen point lead doesn't matter consecutive games. When you defend the way they defended in the second half. And when you share the ball the way they do and get the contributions. They got from their bench to good. Let's talk about two things. Let's start with dream on green. And then let's talk about that bench. Draymond green had a triple double with two minutes to go in the third quarter. That's what Golden State ended up taking its first lead of this game after trailing by eighteen dream on green is playing his best basketball of the season right now. And he continues to do it in the biggest game. Averaging double double in points, and rebounds becomes close in cysts every night tonight he got twelve assists on top of that, but four steals A-block shot, and he sets the tone for this team when they were struggling in the first half to stay in the game him, pushing the ball created all the fast break opportunities in the second half he got a lot of help at one point. It was twenty two eight bench points in favor of Portland wrote Golden State spent just in the second half just jumped all over them and it wasn't just with the offense combined looney was excellent McKay defensively Shaun Livingston as always Jordan bell Quinn. Cook Jonas Gerardo. I mean, Steve Kerr's keeps throwing fresh bodies at them and one after the other. They all contribute, there just weren't enough players even come close to matching that for the Portland trailblazers and for a fourth consecutive playoff game. Steph curry has thirty plus points head that huge performance in the second half against Houston in game six, and he's been rock solid. And beyond in this series. All part of a one ten to ninety nine Golden State victory in game
An Economist in Caracas: Day In The Life
"Mahood Venezuela, which is an internationally funded think-tank, that's affiliated with the Venezuelan opposition party that would be positioned to President Nicolas Maduro. He's been the country's president since two thousand thirteen and under his presidency. The country's economy has the Szekely fallen apart yesterday. We talked to Gabriella about the economic data in Venezuela. But also Gabriella is not just looking at numbers on a page. She lives in Gattaca. She grew up there. The country's economy is collapsing all around or and it's something that she sees every single day. She sees it in the closed up storefronts the shrinking number of people on the streets. And how skinny everyone is getting. And we wanted to get that experience from Gabriele to this is the indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith, and I'm Garcia today on the show day in the life of an economist in. Doc. This message comes from NPR sponsor gained bridge game bridge offers annuities designed for the digital age simplify products with guaranteed returns that you can buy direct.

A new podcast from Lincoln's aditorial team about the changing nature of work and how to get the most from Monday and your career fine. Hello Monday on apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. Gabriella Saadi says she's incredibly lucky she loves her work and her job pays her in US dollars three hundred dollars a month that actually she says a decent wage in Venezuela in spite of her relative privilege living in Caracas is not easy the city and country are crumbling around her and her family, and she sees this every day as soon as she gets up. One of the first things I do is attack. If I have. You know, running water used to see I can. Yeah. To see five we'll be able to take her shower or not Gabriela says, she has water about half the time, but shower or no shower Gabriella has to go to work, but she doesn't take her car not anymore. I need this piece to get aches. And we cannot find it and you were in Venezuela. So I have to take Pollock transportation. But sees I bring my laptop with me to work. I cannot do that. Because I could get robbed. This is Scott us. Okay. One of the most dangerous cities in the world. These days Gabriella takes taxi to work, of course, the taxes can't get parts either. So Gabriel says the ride can be pretty hair-raising once Gabrielle is in her office. She analyzes data with the team of communists, and researchers and tries to come up with economic solutions for Venezuela. She says it's basically black office anywhere, desks. Computers. Water cooler talk power outages that lasts for hours. We are. So used to having them we even have an alum here in the office. Never we got a blackout. So we can you know, plug out everything. So our repayment of one get damage OSA? There's not like a power surge or something exactly around the middle of the day. Gabriel says she tries to go to the grocery store to shop for her family. But before she can do that she has to get Venezuelan boulevards Gabriella and her colleagues get paid in dollars. Gabriel says she's very grateful for that. But a lot of times by Staples. Or really anything you? You need boulevards. Of course, the Bulevar is having a terrible time. Hyperinflation has gripped the country. It is now running at ten million percent. That's what inflation is right now in Venezuela. Ten million percent in order to deal with all this Gabriel and all of our colleagues the system she converts a little bit of US dollars, two boulevard every day through a currency trader ten dollars a day or twenty dollars a day, depending on my expenses. So I will talk to that trader and that person would get me a buyer, and then I will sell sell them dollars is on the phone like a. Yeah. Over what's up over? What has a guy? The guy converts Gabrielle is ten or twenty US dollars into boulevard and transfers at tiny amount into her Venezuelan Bank account the rest of the money. She keeps in a Bank account in the US, or it's protected from the inflation, and even the ten or twenty bucks that the guy transfers into Gabriel's Venezuelan Bank account is not immune to. Inflation. I cannot postpone my shopping. I have to do it right away. Because what happens if you postpone? The prices will rise. If Gabriela waits too long to do her shopping. She says her money could lose enough value that she would not have enough to get what she needs in. It's on her way to the supermarket that Gabriella sees just how much things have changed in her country. The worst Florida is whenever I have to go to the supermarket to buy something because on my way to the supermarket. I see all these families trying to look food on the trash families even with with like, I don't know five kits. They don't ask you for money. The ask you for food. So I will carry that with me to give them like some. So mean. Yeah. And I have never seen like it'll class feeble looking for food on the trash. But now you do because for example, a teacher that used to be in the middle class. Now is now in poverty to real says that when she gets to the grocery store, it is always packed with a huge line snaking around the corner because the cash is worthless. Everyone has to pay by debit card, and because the internet and the power spotty getting a payment through configure really long time sometimes to store will disclose its doors because it can't take any payments and says Gabriella the grocery store has become this kind of grab bag the shelves are often empty and the items are random things have in grocery list is pointless. You know, whenever you see a good that you haven't seen in monce. Even if you don't need it. You just get crazy. And you buy it like, for example up today some meal, and I hadn't seen it for a while. So I got like six liters of male. And I didn't even need that. But that's like the effect of the hyper inflation and everything what were the prices like. Oh. Indeed dollars. It would be more than one dollar the litter. Most people in Venezuela. Make the equivalent of around six dollars a month that milk would be incredibly expensive out of reach for them. Part of this is because of hyper inflation and part of it is because Venezuela's economy has collapsed and still have all of its institutions like the farms, so a country full of starving. People is not really making that much of its own food. It is importing that food. And it's not just food any kind of necessity can be hard to get when Gabriel is ninety five year old grandfather got sick. She ran into the same problem. He was in the hospital three months ago. And we couldn't find a medicine that he needed it. We had to go to like ten places. But then I walked the medicine with people that that had it, and I gave that person the medicine that they need it. Oh, you traded. You like bartered exactly afterward Gubbio says she likes to go for. A run outside. There is so park in Caracas for most runners go it's safe. There are military there and everything Gabriel says there are some rich military government types who liked this park so protected otherwise she says the city's gotten so dangerous, especially for a woman alone. When she gets home says the first thing she does is check her computer and especially Twitter for news. Most of the TV and radio stations are owned by the government. So it's all about fake news for them will leave in the best country in the world, the classic manual cater. So we have three ter-, and we say informed there. It's through Twitter and through texting Gabriela realized that the blackouts were happening across the whole country and not just in the city of dacas. It's Twitter that warns her when more blackouts are coming or reports that eighty newborn babies died in the hospital during the last blackout when news broke yesterday that opposition leader. One guy does car had been attacked in Caracas. Gabriela sent me a photo of hundreds of cars pulled over to the side of the highway full of people desperately trying to get reception on their phones to get some kind of news update. It turned out. He was fine. Of course, Gabriela is an exceptionally lucky person in Venezuela. Her father is a US citizen, and she has some money saved up in a Bank account in the US because you could leave if you wanted. Yeah. I could I could do you stay like, well, I don't know maybe this will sound very millennial. But I feel like I have a purpose here. I know that I can make a difference. And it's like, I'm very very committed to to the people of an that's well, that's I'm here at the end of day. Gabriela goes to bed cetera Larne for six AM after all she has to get up early to her daily water. Check.

We're excited for in two thousand eighteen and granted there's a lot of them. That are very exciting known about them for very very long time. Nintendo's twenty nineteen right now, we got. Royal coming out next week or something that we don't really have any release dates. We got a couple of big games that we know are waiting to be talked about. But like, we don't have anything that's twenty nineteen really when you look at PlayStation. It's like again same thing. We got these big games. But where do they land? Is there other stuff? We don't know. That's the new look at XBox. And you just like they are have been working on stuff for a long time. You gotta imagine that this e-3 if not sometime around that is going to have some some real bombs dropped. It's exciting time. Do you stand by Mr. OSA here in say that twenty nineteen looks underwhelming as of right now in paper? If you're just looking at fischel release dates sure compared to the last two years, that's probably the last two years. Yeah. I feel like that's not g so let's this is don't even try to fucking you're wrong twenty nineteen. Now, we just finished twenty eighteen just finished twenty seventeen both those years. Holy shit twenty seventeen zero like this is the best year for game. Right. It must have been twenty sixteen. Then where I was like there's been a good year. It's been nine for me as a hardcore Nintendo fan going into last year fell. Extremely underwhelming. Like, I was like oh shit looking at we end it with my odyssey. We had breath a wild earlier in the year the previous year and looking down the pipe. It was like oh shit. You're gonna talk about Pokemon at some point in announced it smash was not even a possibility at that point. Yeah. So fuck fuck. Now, you see everything. All right, cool. So what do you think they'll be sudden big games? I mean, I think I think Nintendo direct is imminent. There was questions about that. There's rumors about that. Is that? Okay. Here's the thing. Nintendo from rive. I'm sorry tomorrow pronounce thoughts on the rumored intendo direct happening on the tenth for the past..

"So what you're about to hear is a Ahmir OSA. On the phone with Laura Trump was married to Eric Trump, and Laura Trump is essentially offering this position to her. Take a listen. Platelet by that. On. It was the New York Times article. Don't want the. Down a little. Clearly getting you come up with the campaign like we can't nodding. Kind of know everybody hot that, right. The only thing that we have to consider or dowry. Part of the campaign is concerned as you know, everything outlook. And all the money being rating paying dowry is directly from donor tall dollar per car, go, I know you were making them nine the white out, and I think we could work something out where would he gave me you right along those lines. The only thing happening an added up. The numbers were talking about like The month. one that adds up twelve hundred down definitely up there deal for you. And your vision is typically, I really feel like you're pedestrian. What require you know you to be able to be flexible in terms of where you are sometimes you know, come here for general meeting, but I would love you. Could you know go looking engagement, that sort of thing. I think you'd be off doing that. And though it doesn't really matter wearing aren't you're comfortable thing in then you then you're were more than happy to have you. So she would essentially get this weird bag job working for the campaign Trump's reelection campaign. They pay her fifteen thousand dollars a month, but it's very clear what this job is really about. It's Laura Trump's starts off that conversation with, hey, you know, this New York Times Maggie Haberman article makes it seem like you've got some dirt in your back pocket, and you know if you work with our campaign, we can't have not in this job. Super flexible. You know, it's it's clear what was going on there. I mean, look, if you're Trumpers so you don't believe in reality so, but for everyone else, that's the clearest thing you've ever heard in your life. It's one hundred eighty thousand dollars a year to shut up. It's you've got something in your back pocket and we and obviously we can't have that. And that's why we're paying by the way this this three parts of the story. One that I think some people are focusing on that big a deal. The other two I think are big. So they're like, oh, it's a deal to get her to stay. Quiet in washed. Unfortunately they make those deals all the time. Okay. And I don't think that's just particularly Trump. I think a lot of both parties do it. I know that the mainstream press will be outraged by that charge, but but I think that that is fairly regular course of business. Now, on the other hand, that does confirm that morosi does have something on them because they're not going to offer that money on speculation like on. So bluffing exactly. Trump has to authorize that Trump has to tell Laura, hey, your trusted family. Go talk to on Rosa, offer the hundred eighty thousand dollars because he's got something you'd our back pocket, and it's true. So all that talk about like, oh, no, no, no, no. I didn't say anything bad around. I'm gonna have to Trump's comment in a second. So that's part two in response to this. And then par-three is if you're donating to Donald Trump or you're one of those small donors, oh, they were talking about they're using your money for hush money, and they told her you barely have anything. Couple of speaking agents come to New York every once in a while, and that's it. Eighty thousand dollars a year to do almost nothing..
