"pedia" Discussed on Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood
"And now for some related links. First of all. I thought it was being original with the whole crying. Face thing. But you jeremy berridge for showing me how basic i am. There are one hundred twelve new emoji. We will link to them and to emoji. Pedia where you can read all about the emoji that already exist and how they're generally used like there's the upside down smiley face a personal faith and emoji pedia says it's commonly used to convey irony sarcasm joking or a sense of goofiness or silliness which pretty much we will also link to a buzzfeed story about the gen z. Version to the laughing crying face emoji. Apparently for some it's a dealbreaker like they won't even date a person who uses it and the indicator from planet money did an entire episode about ford's pushed to get a pickup truck emoji approved by the union. Code consortium apparently there is a whole world of dark money behind the emoji. You see on your keyboard like the taco appeared after some hard lobbying by taco bell. And we'll also share a story from the verge about an er doctor who's been pushing for more medical emoji things like intestines stomach a kidney. Also a cat scan and a pillbox. The argument is that these could help. Doctors communicate with their patients especially ones who don't speak the same language or communicate in the same way because you can use emoji for more than joking around. There are some new medical emoji in this latest batch. By the way like a crutch an x-ray ray machine we want to hear from you. What emoji do you want added. Where do you think should be retired. Call or text us at eight. Oh two eight seven seven tack. That's eight oh two eight. Seven seven t. e. c. h. Or you can email us at n. P. tack at marketplace dot org maryelle zegarra.

Was Lafayette Left out of the Cultural Spotlight? With Mike Duncan
"While i was preparing for our discussion today one thing that stood out to me is the sheer lack of movies or tv. Shows about or even including lafayette. If there's one thing we've pedia is good for its those lists where they show all the different cultural depictions from people and for lafayette. It has a whopping twenty four listings of movies. Tv shows or even songs that depict him. Why do you think he's been left out of the cultural spotlight. I went through the same thing that you did. Because i knew i was going to be coming on to do this. And talking about lafayette. You know in tv and movies and was like i don't actually remember him showing up that much I you know. I've i've seen him pop a few times. I think part of it is just like in the anglophone world like an english speaking world. there haven't been that many depictions even of just like the french revolution generally right and once lafayette leaves. The american revolution goes back to france. Most of his life and adventures are set in france and set against the backdrop of the french revolution. Which sure there have been some movies about that but it has never been like a recurring major source of movies and tv shows for the english. Speaking world i mean it's not like a western or even like pirate movies. And so if you're gonna if you're gonna get lafayette you're going to get him as a teenager in the american revolution and then even when you sort of like hone. In on the american revolution there are stories that are adjacent to events in the american revolutionary war of independence. But that even those are not exactly why a vibrant genre that keeps recurring. It's not like we keep going back and turning up but there's not like a movie every single year about the american revolution so he's already kind of confined to a spot that the historical imagination doesn't go back to actually give like if we were doing a show about Let's say the industrial revolution in britain. There's historical fiction set in industrial revolution britain. Every four months right there's always going to be a show about that. And so he's already kind of in a bit of a in a bit of a box and then he himself is just adjacent enough to kind of everything whether it's john adams or whether it's thomas jefferson or whether it's Ben franklin or george washington that he's always going to be just a very hillary character
"pedia" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"There were people who fought a lot practically from the beginning. It didn't really get to be bad though. I would say until about six or nine months in and then net quickly. That's that didn't take long. Yeah well as opposed so right that there was in the in the earliest days we were dominated by people who came over from from new pedia We started with a bang. There were actually a lot of people involved with recopied. Pedia right from the beginning like dozens Because we had already built the community through new pedia. That's why ricky pedia has got such a great start but then we started getting invaded essentially By waves of people from corrosion which is now defunct technology group balogh and slash dot a specially slash dot in slash dot is dominated by. Basically the libertarian. Left it was probably still is and they Those people well. Let's just say. There are a lot of anarchists there. There were a lot of people on on. I recognize now just due to this sort of Habits that i. I've come to detect you know in the intervening years that they were basically the The twenty two thousand one version of of social justice warriors and they were very difficult to work with. Let's just put it that way. And eventually they. They took over. But as i say in the very first months you know even as far as the first nine months it was actually relatively easy to work together the whole notion that we could reach. Some consensus actually made some sense But as soon as there were enough people involved in it didn't matter what the politics were of of it. Were frankly when there were enough people involved. The whole notion of of decision making by consensus went out the window. That's that's actually one of the big mistakes that we made and it's a mistake that that wikipedia still has not solved has not has not fixed. What was the last straw for you. When did that happen. In what made you throw. Open your your hands. And say i'm out.
Institutions still underweight on AAPL despite strong 2020 growth
"Institutional ownership of apple. Shares is near an all time high according to morgan stanley analyst. Katie huber d but it is nowhere near enough and harassed mation could be helpful at this point to find out what institutional ownership is according to the site investo pedia institutional ownership is the amount of the company's available stock owned by mutual or pension funds insurance companies investment firms private foundations endowments or other large entities that manage funds on behalf of others. The site goes onto. Explain that once those institutions get into a company. They tend to stay there for a while. Not only this pulling shares out of circulation raise the value of shares outstanding.

Gold Investor Peter Schiff Calls Bitcoin ‘Fool’s Gold’
"We've been talking about the The latest attack here on bitcoin by peter schiff who is just is not to change. He's decided he's going to be against crypto currency even though his own son has apparently embraced it and as recently called bitcoin. Fool's gold timing. It is quote never going to be money. It doesn't fit the very definition of money and What is the definition of my. That's what i wanted to get into here. According to invest a pedia dot com slash looked online for. You know what what was the definition of money. How do you how do you. How do you identify a thing as money. They say here that money should be a currency should be fungible durable portable recognizable and stable. So five different aspects here so they talk about fungibility they say units of the good should be relative uniform quality so they are interchangeable with one another if different units of the good have different qualities than their value for use in future transactions may not be reliable or consistent trying to use a non fungible good as money results in transaction costs of individually evaluating each unit of the good the foreign exchange can take place so is bitcoin fungible. I would say No because my even if i have one bitcoin and you have one bitcoin. We don't have necessarily the same bitcoin. No bitcoin could be tainted through criminal actions or through theft and so there's a company called chain license which they actually maintain record if she analysis or They helped the the prevent theft or now tracked down. If there's a kidnapping or a a robbery of some kind of crypto they help track it through the ecosystem. Because bitcoin is public because liberty and the blockchain can be viewed by anybody. So would that change from an narrow minero is completely private because they use a ring. Ct and stealth addresses which makes minero fungible. Wait a minute. so we're going to narrow. Zero fungible joins call that a valid money but not bitcoin all right. Let's keep going but talk a little. You know bitcoin's not fungible because certain. Bitcoins are blacklisted. If you if you actually attempt to fly certain bitcoins. They'll actually be frozen
Using Computational Discovery to Build Better Immunotherapies
"Team. Thanks for joining us dan. We're gonna talk about immunotherapy compuserve and its efforts to pursue novel targets for ahmed cancer types. Perhaps we can been gin with the idea of checkpoint inhibitors what are they. And how do they work. He'd be taurus. Are actually proteins modulating the immune system responds in the context of fay affair. Kasim yuna therapy. It was identified. There is a crosstalk between immune cells and and the cancer. This crosstalk is being done through immune checkpoint and and usually these are inhibiting the immune system response to the to the cancer to the cancer cells and and the drugs the few drugs that are out there that are dressing these same immune checkpoint skin to treat cancer. Patients are actually am inhibiting. The inhibition exerted by immune checkpoint on the cancer cells in diff- therefore allowing the immune system to be stimulated and actually fight the cancer. This has been a a real revolution in cancer. Care but these still have limited efficacy. How how effective are these therapies at treating cancer today as of today about twenty to thirty percent of the patient population of the cancer patients are responsive to these drugs. It is increasing with time. We're more proven are being done with the current in hebrew tours. But i have to say that you know. Cancer is a movie factoria disease and and it's actually a collection of many different diseases and we're not in a situation where one treatment fits all basically declined immune checkpoint a drugs are addressing only few number drug targets and they're still many mechanisms that need to be a still a explored and and identified and drugs need to be developed in order to address the various mechanisms of action by which the kansas are actually avoiding the immune system. And here's actually that were. Competent fits in and see what we do. Discover new drug targets and developer first in class drugs to address. These struck targets copy. Jen has developed a computational based drug discovery platform. What is the platform. And how does it work. So the platform is is basically based on twenty years a fan and know how that was built at computation with being a computational discovery company for many years and then after we established a critical mass of discovery capabilities. We turn to be to. We are today. Pretty discovery and development company in generale with built computer systems tucson algorithms in order to be able to address the challenge of new drug targets discovery. And you biological halfway discovery. Identify new drug targets is a is a is a very complex isn't f. fourteens. Multiday mentioned effort and for that we had to develop a multiple systems. We've built a lot of know-how in the company and we've built a Expertise in what is called multi onyx analysis. We're not limiting our platform to a specific data type or a specific technology. Actually we're very flexible. Tools and systems an algorithms are really designed to address multiple data sources multiple data technologies and. This is because this is multifactorial and complex and filled to work in. An all of these are augmented with human expertise that we have in the company in the last twenty years. How do the targets. You've discovered differ from the targets that today's checkpoint inhibitors go after and it's very good question. Actually it's not very different in terms of you know still it's checkpoint but i think that the nature of checkpoints one as compared to the others those that are known and those that we discovered these are proteins. That are very different from one. Another so yes all of them. At least those are defined as negative customer tour costing military checkpoints. They're all inhibiting the immune system response against the cancer. But they're doing it in different ways and what we discovered is as i said you know the checkpoints are now have been translated to drugs that are in the market. A really only very few. I think about three or sociology for pd one. Pedia want and what we discovered. Is you know you biological pathways debts allowed us to discover new immune. Checkpoint that are still inhibiting the immune system response against the cancer but in a different way a different mechanism and this allows us to be able to develop hopefully no new treatments solutions. That will address those cancer patients the not responsive to the current checkpoint inhibitors check on earth. What are the issues with. Existing immunotherapy is the ability of cancers to develop resistance. Where are you doing to address that issue so this is actually exactly what we're trying to do. Am that in cancer. Immunotherapy is there are two issues right there. Ease the patients that are not responsive in does that with time that are developing what is called acquired resistance. We're we're trying to do in. The company is to try and focus on those biological pathways that we believe would address those patients that are not responsive to the current checkpoint blockade. So they're in different ways with different. Mechanism does cancers data and actually deliver a different solution to the problem. And this will were trying to work on. You know the leading the leading drug that is in development at is now owning phase one studies and we have owning michel data in the clinic but the days actually am supporting designs behind. We discovered so we discovered a completely new biological pathway identified sen typically that it is addressing am in. You am a new mechanism that still this family of immune checkpoint. The preclinical data suggested that it should address
Recapping Valorant's First Strike Tournaments From Around the World
"Fowler was relieved the summer. All the competitions have been ones that e Sports organizations paid to host. And while these events have produced Some solid moments. All eyes have been on Riot for how they'll begin to craft and Esports structure around the popular town. The first step was last weekend most likely of Legends Riot would worldwide with the first set of tournaments holding Seventeen tournaments in different regions around the world almost all were brand as first strike been the region so first strike and then a first strike you first by Korea et cetera, et cetera a few others were incorporated into other existing events like the ESL Thailand championship and mine skeevy XV wage. The notable Omission was China because the game hasn't been approved by the Chinese government yet. So that left three major regions any you and Korea each of these regions had the biggest prize pool for First Strike with 100 Grand a piece. We're still in a period of time where teams are figuring out who the best players are so big orgs are not yet dominating like they will in a few years in Korea Vision Strikers took down tnl Esports. Both teams were created specifically to compete in Ballarat and have no other rosters or prior history according to League pedia in Europe. The winter is recognizable as team. Heretics grab first. Second place was summoned F250 Valerie team looking for an org and but they find one and it was too big fan favorites who competed for the title as 100 thieves btsm the entire group of first strike in a was actually really big box. It feels like the only region that had that in addition to thieves and TSM. There were also Sentinels Renegades Envy FaZe Clan T1, and Immortals viewership was good to write games allowed KO streaming down. The fans can watch individual players perspectives big names like myth and ninja commanded solid audience during first strike n a it's too early to say whether or not Valerie will be successful. But this event went well things considered anecdotally the game was fun to watch even though I'm not a huge shooter fan. Normally, it seemed a bit less hectic than OverWatch. Even if it was sometimes hard to follow the action. That's something that every game goes through during first few broadcasts. It's just really hard to figure out what they should be prioritizing on air if Valerie is successful. We can say we witnessed a crucial moment in the birth of a new sport this past weekend.
There's no vaccine for lies about the COVID-19 vaccine
"There is still not yet a vaccine for lies about the co vaccine from american public media. This is marketplace tech. I'm ali would the coronavirus pandemic has gone hand in hand with an info democ of misinformation about everything from homemade cures to weather masks. Work spoiler alert. They do now. If possible. the misinformation stakes have gotten even higher as the covid nineteen vaccine begins to roll out. Doses are set to be administered in the uk as soon as today and disinformation researchers. Say there's a whole new wave of renewed activity spreading lies about vaccine safety and the origin of the virus. Joan donovan is the research director of the shorenstein center on media politics and public policy at harvard so over the past couple of weeks. I've had several doctors as well as a hospital librarians. Asking us for help because people are showing up having junk science at their back. Asking about vaccine. Safety and doctors are wondering. Why is it these questions. Why now at this scale. We also need to do quite a bit clean up online especially around very key. Phrases related to vet the vaccine ingredients vaccine harms. Because we have you know over a decade now of vaccine misinformation. That is just littered about the internet much of which has been waiting for this moment to burst into the public consciousness. Remember what do you think about some of the tools that the platforms have employed in the primary one seems to just be this labeling and linking to some vetted resource you've been a little bit critical of that in some instances as i click through those labels. They're not immediately relevance sometimes or they're not targeted enough in terms of pointing people towards accurate information that they've almost started to become at least in the right wing media ecosystem they start to become a bit of a joke or a badge of honor to some folks. I think something that triggers and all of us when we see a label as we assume that things that are not labeled may be more true than they are in some ways feels like a little bit of a groundhog's day conversation you know the platforms are never quite doing enough in there too. Big and there is no regulation. And yet i think we would still agree though you and i that we also don't necessarily want these platforms fully in charge of deciding what we see given their scale right. What i'm interested in really understanding is how are they going to describe and define what counts as misinformation on their platform and then instead of retroactively. Really trying to band aid the situation. What is their design solution. That doesn't allow monied interests and with political reach to turn those systems against society. So you're saying there's a big delta between what they're doing now and even then becoming publishers in the sense where they're liable for what goes up. Yeah and i think that you know one of the you know. It's it's again groundhog day. But a feeling like a fool's errand to really try to care deeply about any politician you know pulling the rug out by taking section to thirty away for instance when it comes to trying to get platforms to stabilize how they serve information. That's what the struggle is here When trump is saying that we got to get rid of two thirty it's because the information ecosystem is so unstable that he can't wheeled it to his advantage. But we have to be cognizant of the fact of who's calling for this removal and under what conditions but we're going to have a struggle over large centralized communication systems are world's continuously rioted. No matter what is done now. The problem is always going to be you know when it comes to centralizing our communications. Are these platform companies being responsible to the broadest public. Good and at this stage we can. We can demonstrate. No i wonder. I wanna ask you from your perspective as a professor in a weird way it seems like social media platforms at this size or something. We also have to build immunity to like. They're also relatively new and our brains and figure society has not figured out how to handle this new type of virus should curriculum. Be a part of that like should we be designing curriculum for schools for children to teach them how to recognize truth. I think our educators. Do a fairly good job of that. What's hard is is when you go on line and you see a company like google whose tasked themselves with organizing the world's information but then they don't show you how they organize it and so it becomes a really complicated question for younger folks to say well. I have access to more information than any human being in the history of the world. And yet i have trouble finding true things or accurate things. Let's let's maybe scale it down one philosophical notch and so. I do think though that we do need curriculum for understanding it just as we would teach people the practice of citations and why that matters we do need to help. People understand what it is that there are seeing when they searched for You know information on any of these platforms and then you know. It's it's a hard problem though. I mean back in my day. Not that old but wicked pedia was considered this big enemy of the university. Right how could they possibly have so much information on wikipedia and it all be true right and so teachers would say you can't cite wikipedia but it's really where we all began our exploration even if we didn't necessarily show it and i think at this point now we do also have to wonder about the flow of timely local relevant and accurate information and so one of the things that i think. We also have to redesign as we think about and scale of these platform is is to what degree then. We also try to open knowledge and try to make sure that the world's resources information resources scientific publications are also available for people to be able to explore and understand and by and large journalists are the ones who provide that window into science popular science anyhow and and it's hard because we've seen also as we see platforms taking control we see journalists losing resources and Audience

Even if you can't meet up with face to face you still maximize opportunity to give us digitally just showing up time and time again. In an online space sparks.

It works best when you recognize and are prepared to acknowledge the differences between what is possible on and offline. And don't try to impose walk can be achieved one medium or another for such as not exported and in-person conference or exhibition wholesale into the online space. It also works far better when you create something ongoing with continuous thread running through it. Rather than a one of event to me offline touches you'd media lunch.

Now i don't believe in being zoomed out as a reason for not wanting to attend i'm be apart of online events. The reason people are often reluctant to attend. A virtual conference is normally down to the pedestrian nature of how the material ends up being delivered. No one wants to watch. A presentation is broadcast with zero energy.

StartUps And Loans
"One of my principals is. I hate spending money until i'm making money. I hate spending money until i making money because anybody can spend money right anybody you can go out and take out that loan and create a training center and expand julie business. You could spend it on a million different things. It's so easy to spend money but not everybody can make money. That's the hard part. And so i want you to be making money before you go out and spend money really depends for me on what state. You're businesses okay. You're not just the startup. you're not just hey. I have an idea. This is the mistake. Most entrepreneurs make a lot of entrepreneurs make hey have an idea. I'm going to start a jewelry business. I'm going to go out and get a store. That's the first thing. I need right to store. And then you blow through all your cash cause you make so many mistakes because you don't know what you're doing you haven't perfected your process and so your company fails shutdown and you've lost your savings. You may lose your house. You mortgage your future for this big bet. That didn't work out because you didn't keep yourself the best chance at success. That's what a lot of entrepreneurs do what you need to do. Is figure out a system that works you start small you build up you get customers you understand your product you you get traction. The reason you want to be expanding. I don't know what you're starting now if you're at home you have a little stall whatever you want to expand when you're busting at the seams when you can't handle any more business in your location that's when you want to expand and that means taking on a loan to finance something bigger fine but you gotta be busting at the seams right now if you're not there yet then don't go and expect because a lot of people think. This is a huge mistake. A lot of people think. Well if i had a store if i was in this location things it'd be bad. You can't count on that location to save you. It's not going to save you. You have to figure out your process your products. You're planning now and make it work on a small scale wherever you are until you can't handle it anymore because you're growing quickly then.

Ride-hailing, delivery giants win fight against labor law
"There was one other ballot measure. Nobody that i thought was worth talking about. And that was the much ballyhooed proposition. Twenty two out in california now. This was the uber and lift law. Had you heard at all about what was going on out there. The yeah i heard that california is trying to put the uber and lift drivers out of business there by declaring them to be employees right. Oh they're not cram and so what happened with that so what happened was proposition. Twenty two is actually written by the ride sharing companies. It was in response to a law that was passed by the state legislature that was trying to force the contractors to become employees and so the ride sharing companies made a ballot proposition and got it qualified by getting six hundred thousand signatures or whatever to put that on the ballot and proposition. Twenty two passed so that means that california's voters surprisingly actually weighed in of the contractor status la particular case. I wonder if they actually understood the issue he could questions. There was a lot of amazing. There was a lot of money was poured in because california's a huge market right. I mean if if uber and lift in whatever the smaller ones are if they were to be forced into this employee status for their contractors. They probably would have just left the state right And obviously they don't wanna do that so they were willing to spend some number of millions of dollars to promote this thing and so here's a story from cnbc. California voters decided on tuesday. That uber lift should be exempt from state labor law. That aim awhile so they left the horrible law line place and just exempted to companies. Now i think it's all the drive the ride shares have It may actually be all the gig gig economy stuff. I'm not sure to what the how wide cutting it was But according to the story day The state labor law aimed to make their drivers employees rather than contractors according to nbc news projections voters made the call on proposition. Twenty two ballot measure. That essentially became one of uber lifts last hopes in the state to continue their operations under the status quo. The proposition would allow drivers for app based transportation and delivery company. So if you're a door dasher or uber eats or postmates than this would also affect you to be classified as independent contractors. In many circumstances well that would disqualify them for benefits. Granted to employees. The measure also entitles drivers to new benefits like minimum and vehicle insurance so they did bend a little bit here on their normal set of how things work several gig economy apps back the measure including uber lift door dash instacart and postmates which uber is acquiring the support for these companies helped raise nearly two hundred and three million dollars to back the measure while opponents raise less than twenty million according to tallies compiled by ballot pedia
Tech CEOs To Testify Before Senate Panel On Platforms' Legal Shield
"Americans you, have six days left to cast their votes in this most unusual presidential election never before has an election been. So influenced by social media back in May twitter added labels to tweets at the company felt were potentially misleading and that included tweets by President, trump facebook has now banned all new political ads between now and the election though ads that have already been published are still visible, Google. Will stop all political ads from running after the polls close election day that's something facebook has pledged to do as well. So now the CEO's of twitter facebook and Google are all being made to defend those policies they're set to testify today before the Senate Commerce Committee senators are weighing whether to reconsider the legal shield that has long protected. The TECH INDUSTRY NPR's Allen is here to explain hey bobby. Good Morning. Rachel. Let's just start off with the timing of all this. Why why is this happening now? So it's happening now because the calls as you mentioned have been coming for some time from trump and from even from Democrats in Congress to do something about this law section to thirty. Now. Like you said at the top twitter for the first time, placed a label on one of trump's tweets that one. He made a false claim about mail in voting, and this is really irritated trump and it really amped his crusade to have the platforms reigned in Here's the president after twitter flag that tweet they've had unchecked power to censor, restrict, edit shape hide alter virtually any form of communication between private citizens. So trump. There was signing an executive order aimed at a law that protects the tech industry like I said, it's known as section two thirty, and that is why Senate Republicans have today called this hearing. Okay. So this is the legal shield section to thirty. Explain what this law does. Yes. So it was passed in the mid nineties during the early days of the Internet if you can recall them. Back. Yeah back then facebook and twitter we're not yet around but. Names like compuserve and prodigy were. Services people talked a lot about and back then and now the law gave tech platforms. He's shield that made their future growth possible and in basically what it says Rachel is that they cannot be sued for what posted to their sites. But now this law is in peril because for once Democrats Republicans can actually agree on something and it's that this law is no good and it's got to go I imagine they. They may come to the same conclusion but different ways, right? I mean do Democrats and Republicans agree on why section thirty so bad. So the short answer is no a Democrats, say it has let facebook. And twitter for years have a hands off approach to misinformation and hate speech Republicans on the other hand say, Hey, these platforms are hiding behind this law to suppress conservative views. Even facebook's Mark Zuckerberg says, this law should be updated but he and many other tech leaders say repealing it completely would be a disaster because that would open the floodgates to endless lawsuits and Rachel, and we're not just talking about facebook here. I mean we CA-. Pedia yelp read it and so many other corners of the Internet that relies. So heavily on this law could be subject to lots and lots of lawsuits if this law is repealed. So, really this is about are these just platforms or do they have some kind editorial influence on the content? The they allow on their platforms as part of this Republicans today are expected to air grievances about what they perceive as a liberal bias on on these platforms right? What does the data say about that, right? So Republicans point to twitter's decision to remove links on its platform of recently the New York Post story about Hunter Biden that had some very questionable sourcing facebook also reduced the the spread of. That story. So there are lots of anecdotal one offs like this, and then there's the data as you mentioned, which presents a much different story and the data says that conservative us and conservative stories actually are amplified on facebook at some of the most engaged with content and the facebook algorithm rewards engagement. So it's actually the opposite of what the some conservatives are saying that facebook and twitter are helping conservative us and helping conservative store stories reach bigger audiences than they ever could have imagined before the social networks.
"pedia" Discussed on The Drug Science Podcast
"For free to see how to become a community member. Click on the link in the show notes now, where were we let's get back to the show We'll be completely pointless with police intervene to. Say. Well that's That's kind of a common sense and the fact you're having these conversations of the season you realize that. The policemen on the beat released, sympathetic what you're doing and understand that. You can't. Convict. Out of a drug problem in the police. Do. You know it's been not all been plain sailing has it I think you've heard some some challenges? Yeah. That's eight David. The Fast Insurance Policy for divine was canceled brokers for their insurance company where actually contacted by the police authoritative the therefore give me seven dollars Pedia don't the insurance rather than win for seven days expire. What was able to do is actually cancel the insurance policy myself on that I was able to reinsure that were carbon did declare council insurance policy new black mark against you then in terms of your ability to pay your insurance. and. You found another insurance company that's been accepting ever since I have the other insurance companies specialized insurance companies who?

Things You Should Know Before Your First Loan Attempt
"Now. How about a breakdown? Of, course, I expect that you already know what alone is apparently some of of taking lungs or maybe planning on getting one son. However for the sake of this, breaking it down won't even be a bad idea. Question. What is alone? Alone isn't amount of money borrowed for a set period within an agreed repayment shuttle. The repayment amount will depend on the high end direction off the loan and the rate of interest. Old. Now even alone is easy money it can postlewait bad decisions. And you have to pay back sooner or later. Obtaining loan to start an improvement business is indeed a bad idea. But obtaining alone tat franchise location usually is a good one. Before taking alone out advice that you weigh the pros and cons before going out for it. Now here are things you should know before proceeding for your past loan application. I. Corps and credit history, a good credit score and credit history. So lenders that you pay your credit obligations on Tom. The better your credit, the better your chances of carrying alone at the most favorable terms. The best can save you thousands over the life of your own before you apply for a loan. Know your credit score and pull your credit report to check for errors could drag down your score. If your credit isn't in great shape I'll recommend holding off an application for alone if possible and the meantime walks improve your credit to save yourself potential thousands of dollars. And next is income. Your take home pay affects your ability to pay off alone. So you'll need to have a proof of income for your applications. If you are an employee, you will need pay stops. Letter from your employer. If you are a self employed on. You need task returns for the past two or more years and possibly invoices and receipts. Of course, you'd have to know just how much bringing home each month. So you'll know whether you can afford monthly loan payments and so on. Remember to think about all of your income substance, not just your primary one. This may include a south income child support on on job all freelancing income. And Monthly payments obligation is next. Your income is only one part of the equation. It's also important to know your monthly payment obligations. Eve your income is five thousand dollars. For example, the math baccio payments obligation is four, thousand, nine, hundred and fifty dollars per month you realistically be able to pay. Avenue known. Pedia, alone, application will likely require you to lists certain obligations. Typically your rent or mortgage payment and maybe existing Monte debt payment. Now, how about assets and liabilities? Another thing you'll potential lenders may look at is your net worth all your assets minus your liability. Are The things you own? That are what something? Lighter investments account and properties. Abilities are the financial obligations you have such as your student, loan, debt or mortgage. Knowing your net worth is important for personal knowledge as well.

OT and IT integration for profit-driven operation
"Operational Technology and information technology are OT nit. This integration is required for sharing information on all levels of manufacturing organizations to achieve profit-driven operation or PDO. Process Industry companies implement real time production performance improvements that are line from the management level to the plant floor. For an example, here will look at a particular pedia solution, which takes production production performance indicators traditionally monitored by plant management on a weekly monthly basis embrace these indicators down to the technical and operations level using industrial best practices to create semantic performance indicators or what will refer to as espy is. These SPIC. Displayed in real time by utilizing big data from the distributed control system or the DS. This information helps operators, engineers, and upper management stay aligned to promptly improve production by providing performance alarms guidance messages in performance balanced score by using it technologies such as the cloud consulting services. It can't be incorporated to uncover additional improvements via the analysis of historical production performance parameters. This requires the merging of expertise in ot with the industrial internet of things with it technologies along with process industry best practices to enable production performance optimization over the life cycle of a process plant. Now. When I introduced pedio, some process plant personnel may confuse it with advanced process control and optimization in reality plants should implement all three of these technologies working concer advanced process control or AP see is used to control multiple control loops for partial process optimization such as increasing throughput reducing giveaway loss optimization is used to manage multiple ABC instances for entire processes. ABC optimization are very powerful technologies, but they do not work properly if the model is not updated on a timely basis in each often turned off by operators due to a lack of deep understanding. PTO addresses these issues by helping operators understand the effectiveness of ABC optimization through the visitor visualization of relevant s p. is and trade offs. This allows operators to make the decisions required to maintain timely updates. pedia Solutions Leverage real-time an accurate plant big data from a C. S and integrate this data with domain knowledge to create S.. P. is these SPF NAP typically connected from plant operation to plant management much like the human body uses synapses to connect nerves. SPIC encompassing five main management objectives and spent four levels of process Plant Organization for reference. These management objectives include production, prophet, energy reliability, and safety, and these roles include leadership, management, technical, and operations. The high level management objectives are production, profit, energy, reliability, and safety like mention, and of course, the organizational levels of leadership management technical in operation. So spa creation requires extensive domain knowledge of the process plants operation. For example, by applying hundreds of personal years of collective experience and expertise companies have structured more than twenty eight hundred S P is for refinery operations in eight hundred espy is for ethylene operations. These espy is must be customized for each situation because each process plan is different, once S P is are created, the next step is to configure DASHBOARDS pedia software uses S P, is to configure many different types of real time SPIC dashboards. Each process units home dashboard gives an overview performance related to the five management objectives of Production Prophet Energy Reliability, and safety. This dashboard hopes users visualize SPIC balance on the five management objectives by showing what objectives are alarm or alert state and what SPIC trade offs may be required to address. Each issue cooking on a roll level leads a user to another dashboard appropriate to that users level of responsibility. These dashboards can then be used to improve operations as each provides not only an indication of current status but also advise for making improvements pedia software automatically links all of These dashboards to coordinate actions on all levels of plants organization by providing performance alarms, guidance messages, and performance balanced score pedio helps leadership management and technical and operations. Personnel stay aligned to promptly improve production performance operation and technical personnel relying ot to dashboards and take actions while management and leaderships more often employ it to view dashboards provide advice ot it. Integration is therefore crucial because it allows information to be communicated in real time across all levels of the organization. Ot I immigration is also essential for enabling consulting services from external experts located remotely from the plan cloud digital twin and other services allow plant data to be communicated globally
Nintendo delves into ‘Pikmin 3’ and ‘Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity’
"And welcome to NBC ends Nintendo podcast this week, we will be talking about Pittman Three Deluxe Higher Warriors, age of Calamity Monster Hunter of course, and the lack of Nintendo voice chat on it Nintendo switch. Would we have talked about before but you know this time we got Europeans. So look forward to that I'm your host cases in this week, I am joined by Pear strider. Day. Marks Oh and Zach Ryan top of the morning to each and every one of you. S. We are now recording on Thursdays so we never have to scramble to cover a Thursday morning announcement ever again. Even move everything to Friday it only two two plus years of intendo absolutely us. Before we decided we'd better move this stuff so. It's time this time we put our foot down. So, Great. But yeah, let's get started I guess the the biggest news is that we got to see a forty five minute long presentation on Picton Three Deluxe and a think twenty, five long minute presentation pyro Warriors Age calamity, and they were both treehouse presentations. So it was basically gameplay play with people talking about said game play Let's talk about Pittman three because that demo is available now and also Tom and pair have been plane. So did we learn anything in his treehouse presentation that you didn't already know? From play. we learned about the ultra spicy limit, the ultra spicy difficulty mode, and how it's going to limit Sixty like you can only have sixty pittman in the field at a time, which is kind of interesting like I don't know if that's the type of difficulty increase I would want because I lake having lots of Pitman following me, but it's it's an interesting thing to to hear about but yeah. Tra- spicy, not only great difficulty mode, but a wonderful flavor as well. I completely disagree with that but. Their own. But we did get to see person photo mode showing off, and we also got to see that whenever you encounter a new creature. It gets entering the PICCOLA Pedia, which is new at least for pick three, and there are new levels with Louis, which we saw the split screen. This was announced with the announcement victory deluxe, and now we just got to see it in action like I said the demos out now but I didn't mention that save from demo transfer over to the full game, and also completing also gives immediate access to the ultra spicy difficulty mode in the full game which Tom just mentioned. I'd stuff. And I'm actually going to be on the review for this one. So I've been playing I've been playing in a little bit more than what the Demo has well. And Man I still just love. This game holds up. So well, the the graphics aren't really any better here beyond like there's not lag when the juice goes into the bottles anymore like there was on we you but it was already such a good-looking game that you know it holds up in a lot of different ways are talk one of little little quality of life things that are just so so nice that aren't going to be on like the box or the store page, but are just like if you played the original, you're gonNA feel how much easier it is to control this one in little ways. Juice lag removal obviously is the top selling point. I've Hewlett back of the box to i. saw got very excited. Okay. I played it last night with my daughter. I played the demo not the full version yet but. We immediately jumped into op to see how that would work and I thought it was going to it in the demo of the final game. I. Thought it was going to lock you out until you had other characters on walked right in the picnic games picnic three everybody's scattered, and then you find each other and then you can switch back and forth. But the game actually lets you do you know laid at the same character twice from the from the very so you get this vertical split-screen arden the noise I. Think my wife is printing something on this year printer. Way Yeah, you get a vertical split screen and it is is completely de couple. So it's not a it's not keeping you together. One person can go into a cave and the other person can be outside. You can toss pigment to the one player and the other new obviously split the maximum amount of a between the two, but it worked really while it ran well, and it was just kind of fun to be doing these tax separately. Now I don't know how that impacts. The game because. Can Get way more done. I was battling a Boston. My daughter was like bringing strawberries back so We'll see how that impacts the game, but a works like a cinch and then. Play with a pro control in has two different Gyro moats. So has warned that is more like a pointer away you move around your target on the screen and the other one is more directional with like slight till to adjust. But I felt like the regular controls with the lock on feature worked just fine so. That's how a play on the we you as it was into great man. That's my biggest love that game. That's my biggest question is what the deal with the touchscreen integration was the handled that pretty well with Super Mario Galaxy with the pointer. So I figured it would be sort of a similar situation. Can. You can do joy concept shortly inside ways all of that, and the pretty smart in how the describe it, and it has reversible camera mode. So. Everybody was upset about the Mario Collection. It sounds like Nintendo is adding adding some of that feature stuff. Nice. Yeah the the funny thing about pigment to me is that. Pittman has now been on four consoles right with this. It's it's stretched across four different Nintendo systems five view count the three D. S., but we don't we don't. and. The funny thing about it is that it has never really been quite at home control. Wise on any of them. Right like the we you like the we moat is like not a much. It's a good way to play it but like it's it's got sacrifices in other ways the game pat I really liked but also then you have to like hold the game pad with one hand and right. With the other in our sometimes using buttons like like this, really as always had little control issues. So that's still sorta here but the the options they give you a lot of options and the options that they give you feel really good and the lock on feels really good and some of the the the quality of life things I was mentioning that just make things easier and quicker to control are like. Really little things like I'm getting into the nitty gritty here. But like when you disband when you do the whistle to dismiss the people or dismissed the pigment and let him out of your
Apple’s New Emoji Wants You to Know That You Don’t Have to Be Miserable When Wearing a Face Mask
"Apple is rolling out a new mask emoji. There's already one that shows one of the classic yellow faces wearing a surgical mask. It's gotten especially popular during the pandemic, but now apple is making it look happier. It's going to have friendlier eyes and eyebrows and rosy cheeks, and it'll basically look like emoji is smiling. Ask. The idea is this help normalize mask-wearing and the EMOJI will no longer imply that only sick people are wearing masks. EMOJI pedia says the new EMOJI will roll out in the next IOS update and by the way Samsung also made its mask emoji look a little happier back in mark.
Voice X Design Sprint - Maaike Coppens
"On the line with Mica coppins and independent voice you X. Strategist and designer, and also the creator of the voice acts designed sprint. Based in Paris and France, just like me at Mike has adapted Google sprint method for voice design giving you a clip process go from idea the validated case to prototype. So you'RE GONNA learn all about collection of games and interactive exercises that form the voice ex design sprint. These are things that you can use in your own voice design sprints in the office even at home when you're building cutting edge voice APPS. So Mike Walker to the show. Thank you. Thank you call. That is the most magnificent introduction I've ever heard. My pleasure. Great to have you on the on the finally I know we've we've already met in person. You see you're in. You're in Taras even presented on stage at one point at together. Yes you did. We had the chance to talk about voice together at a sloppy witches of French you ex association was really interesting. We also did a voiceprint challenged right after that which is shortens learners voice exercises to give me a taste of what they can do in a very short amount of time. started. Yeah I remember that's fantastic. So you can definitely we can talk about as well as greater to join you on stage to give a presentation to the French crowd about voice Yes it was a great experience and let's go straight into the the design San. Maybe we could maybe you could give an outline of what the the Google Sprint was the main the core concepts though that come into these and how then the voice ex designs Bryn adopt style though the the unique elements of the the the voice focused presents. Yes of course. So the design sprint is a matter that was developed by J snap. while. He was at go. and. That is now majorly adopted as row a digital industry. To make better products foster signs, the pitch of all this of designers sprint, which is different from an agile sprints at the design. Sprint is really diving deep and focused during. Short amount of time what writers like or five days out with a multidisciplinary team, and you go from just a challenge, a problem to a prototype solution that was tested with users. Okay. That's that's the main contact. The real strength of the design sprint is the fact that you have everyone in the room or a very focused worked together. A short period of time. That allows you to align teams better to make savvy unreal progress and you have user input from the very beginning of when you start bling your product. Go to, yes. Very us a century focused exactly exactly and it also helps teams within companies aligned. So it's Good for companies and for end users, which is all like was everything I feel very passionate about. So perhaps. I can tell you about how the voice actor designs sprint came to be, which were also explained how it is different from regular design sprint. Yeah. Definitely. Go ahead. So. I started out consulting employs from the very very beginning that voice became a more. More of the things that say so in Lhasa believes definitely gaining popularity although voice has existed for. A lot longer than EGO. Are? Present And I saw a few problems I started consulting with companies star Knobs, and those problems were one. No one really had a clue of how much. Artificial intelligence could do or not do for voice applications that was like one challenge I soul the second challenge I saw his because. Some people knew other people did know. Everyone had different ideas at team alignment was very, very difficult around these new projects. One of by one of my clients actually one day said, hey, here's a pedia. You can feed it to the machine and he saw that conversation with just magically start. So because of that. Difficult team alignment, revenue voice technology not everyone had the same knowledge which was really a a gap that needed bridging. Not. Enough user input because it wasn't new technology was very often about getting the technical goal prototypes right So definitely user centrists also something I was of getting worried about. And so Because I wanted to make sure that these innovation products moved at the pace that they needed to move. For them to stay in alternative and not to be an officer saw. What everything had already happened I thought. Okay. Well, I need to be looking at the methodology. Dad Does these things that team alignment and speed And so the designs sprint nationally came to mind because that's exactly that that's what it says sold. Big Problems. In just five days that's seems beach of did sign sprint say yeah. Just how to look at the Google side and. The sprint book suggests that Yeah Five Day process for answering critical business questions through design prototyping and testing ideas with customers allows you to forward into the future to see your finished product and customer reactions before making any expensive commitments. That's the key point rights before you build a product or we spend a lot of money on it, you WanNa everyone in the room you want to get those those insights as quickly as possible.
Internet Archive Book Scanning with Davide Semenzin
"Welcome to the show. Thank you. You're on the Internet Archive. What does the Internet archive do. That's a great question. Deterrent archive is the world's largest digital library, and whereas most people may know of us because of the way back machine, which is this really rather needs tool that allows you to go back in time and kind of see what web pages used to look like. We really are fully-fledged online is the library and that we have different types of media types. We hold texts and television and audio images, movies, all sorts of things and yeah, the introduce archive you can think of as this huge repository of Internet. When did you start working there? I started here in two thousand sixteen. So. We've been yeah for years. And what do you work on their today? Well, I work on the books. That's mostly what I would I have always been on. I'm spending the bits inside of this. So usually when we think about our media types, we think of in terms of bits and bits out how we procured them, and how we distribute them. My specialty is working on the book bits in saw in order to build up our collection of almost four million books we have Candan, and my job is to sort of keep running the whole pipeline that allows us to do that. So over the last four years, we've my team, I built it. And now we achieved over our objective of being able to digitize million books per year which we're doing, and it's pretty interesting challenge so far. So you work on book digitisation and I WanNa talk about that. But first, let's talk more about the Internet archive at a high level. He told me about what is being stored across the Internet archive and who pays for it, and how do people use it just share a little bit more about the Internet Archive. Yeah. That's a great question. So I'm going to start from a WHO pays for it because I think that's the result of depth and that question Internet Archive. If you think about it as a repository, it's just essentially a bunch of hard drives spinning connected to the Internet. Somebody's GONNA. Pay For both danger and connection and hard drives and the electricity and all of that largely you can think. Of of our revenues in treated front weight. So we're a nonprofit and we don't really run for profit businesses. We don't benefit in any way of the data that comes on on our servers. We do benefit from your donations and so by and large, we are a community funded effort, and so if you type slash donate, we actually just added integration with apple pay so people will not help us. That'd be great. So we receive a fair amount of money that we we need to run from patrons, Cintas like people who supported us. On the side, we do have some some small some businesses. So we have our archive it. Our arm where essentially contract alto were machine capabilities and we we are maintaining a very large amount of curated website collections. In fact, we I, think we have about seven hundred can ization that are that are partnering with us to create these collections and if you tens of billions euros that have been collected for for our partners, and so they pay us to do the service and we do it for them and same is true for books. digitisation. So as we have built up to large infrastructure that is required to do this kind of tasks, we have to an extent, the ability to contract out to third parties, and so we do get some some revenue streams that way not anything particularly substantial in terms of like our ability to to sustain ourselves. But you know every little bit helps and then obviously throughout the twenty twenty, five years of our existence, our founder Brewster Kahle has. Chipped in here in Deir a significant amount, I guess over the years to to keep us running. So we have donations we have a little bit of our non for profit business, and then we have brewster who is there so This is in terms of who pays for it, but the question would be I guess who benefits from it. Right and that's a very, very large segment of the Internet. We're not the biggest website on the Internet. They think we are. We're ranking about two hundred and something the Alexa rank. But since we've been around for a long time, the users that that lovers the Lavas like I, every day I am in contact with people who tell me their story about how they use the Internet archive for their specific need always always amazed by the depth and breadth of. The of the use cases user spring to us. So it it spans from teachers to researchers, journalists to lawyers Theresa very, very large diversity also in terms of the country's from the backgrounds from from when users from. So it's kind of hard to to to paint them with the same brush but in general I want to say they are people who have some degree of laugh for knowledge and you may know our our motto, our slogan our mission is Universal Access to all knowledge, and so I guess people who have an interest in that eventually land on on our website. Okay. Well, let's talk about book digitisation as a particular project that is under the auspices of the Internet Archive. What is book digitisation? So, books digitisation is the effort of transforming physical books into digital artifacts. So that's the definition can take it forms. You know if you are if you have a scanner in your home and your scanning document in a way, that's obviously that's digitisation if you take pictures of the book. That's a book book digitization. So the definition that needs to be applied to the use case at hand, there have been other efforts at large scale of books. This decision famously Google had one but dare. Different From Ours, for instance, where they did distractive digitisation so they would pull the spines from books and and turn dot process into a sort of sensitive. Kind of problem we do non destructive book dissertation and I think non-destructive bit. It's just a little bit as important in the Beth nation as the fact that we're these books digitizing them so that we can keep them so that we don't destroy them. So the process by which we turn books into bits and then returned books to wherever they came from or wherever they need to go. So Why would I want to digitize a book and how many books get digitized each day just tell me more about the volume that's going through this. I'm very happy to answer this. So the reason why you would want to digitize book there's multiple. So think about for instance, the first thing that comes to mind is obviously preservation if famous birtherism is that accessibility drives preservation so if you don't have something. It's almost like it doesn't exist especially in this age of information, we do have immediate access to all of all of these resources and so if we if you actually think about this, if you have to go to the library to to procure a certain book chances are you won't, and if the if the record of that book actually doesn't exist, you may never get to it and were. This is a problem is for all of this huge amount of books that were printed in the twentieth century for which there is really no digital equivalent books nowadays that are published like currently obviously, they have a book artifacts. That stuff is not to get lost. and. That stuff is searchable and it's reachable but we have. Tens of millions of books that are unaccounted for and as time progresses getting lost, and if we if somebody doesn't save them, they will be lost forever and that's that would be a pity and huge loss of human effort and so but first of all, I think important to scope the problem I think the D estimates that there is about one hundred, million books out there. Give or take unique unique books and. Scanning them we're, probably not gonNA scan all all one hundred of them first of all because. You would be able to source and that's my fire the hardest thing. So we tried to scope down the problem and trying to figure out. Okay. How can we do this in a way that is useful for people so first of all, I think we had to come up with a list of books that we wanted to get into we knew. Books that are important and we need to can these first so that? We'll. We'll get. We'll get into to people and this will be evidently immediately useful and a good place for us to start was freaky Pedia, which is collected. A long list of SPN's the where commonly cited in Wikipedia compiled the list came out to a few hundred, thousand books, and so whenever we we come upon one of those sourcing process, we make sure that we get. We can talk about the senator sourcing, Proxima, little bit later but in general, we do have a little bit of a concept of priority or at least we did this was the first million million and a half. And then the problem was that we started running out of books you would be surprised how hard it is to source books by by the half a million you know and if you if you do it by your smaller scale, it doesn't really make sense to to us in terms of maintaining our our economic scale. So the whole system works only if you scan at huge volume and time and but huge volume, we're talking about a million bucks a year, which is about three thousand books day some things some days we'll do thirty, five somedays. We'll do twenty five on a seven days week averages houses about. Between Twenty to twenty, twenty, five, thousand books. Every book is about three hundred pages so that. COMES OUT PRETTY NEAT about million million pages per day five to seven million pages per week and you know that's not a huge amount of data in total. I wouldn't be surprised I. think like last time I checked it was about between ten and fifteen terabytes of data week. So we're not talking about huge amounts but it's not a small amount eater and we can talk about the challenges of Piping data over the Internet in a reliable way later but it's a significant volume and this operation is running you know twenty, four seven. And so. In terms of why even do this? So I called for the first part, which is obviously people want to get to the books. There is a second benefit in having digitize books, and that it's a wholly new format, it allows you to interact with the body of knowledge in a way that you never have before if you have. A physical book artifact, it has some very desirable properties, for instance, very low random access time and doesn't depend on the battery. It's very, very hard to censor, and these are not properties of digital artifact but this is the active factor searchable, and in fact that we have like it's pretty amazing next search engine where you can instantly search all forty million text items that we have. So that's a million books plus all of the patents papers I'll all sorts of stuff and you can search that instantly that was just not possible with the previous format. So I don't think this is dwell ISM in any way I think books. Digital format and books their physical format will continue to coexist. They just help each other out, and in fact, if we are able to digitize them in the first place is because of the properties of. Physical artifacts that they don't just disappear. If we find one, we can scan it. Well. Those are great summary of what you do and I can tell how excited you are about it. Let's talk a little bit more about the high level, and then we'll get into the engineering. So can you describe the steps of digitisation in more detail if I have a book how am I digitized it? Yeah. So, the books that position pipeline is predecing people and it's like in a way if you're an engineer I think is kind of what to expect so I D-. A physical sorting. Step where your book is ingested into the system. It's given ID and it's it's placed in a container. So we know that the the exists. So to speak the second step is it gets to a scanner. The scanner picks it up within the in the machine loads up the data necessary whereby The books method data we can. We're going to have to talk about that. I, guess it's pretty interesting facet of it all and then proceeded to actually scan it, which means they turned the pages page by page and they take pictures of the pages, and once this process done they click upload and the book vanishes into the ether and so at this point, we have a fork the digital artifact goes into our servers divisible artifacts either goes back to the person who gave it to us in the first place or it goes into our warehouse. and. This largely depends on what kind of book it is. So obviously, the recent larger conversation to be had about copyright and like what books is it is it okay to scan and under what guys it is but suppose we are just you know scanning Yearbook Jeff and you you just wrote the book and you want to have it digitized to risk no claim on it just wanted back at the end. So after we're done scanning it, we're handing it back to you with slip inside which will tell you the Internet archive identifier and the. Or is just the name of the item on the Internet Archive. Everything is an item and you're just going go to type slash details, slash your identifier and a few hours. Later, you will find her book. Wile you wait the second part of the pipeline is GONNA kick off. So That's the digital server side stuff and it's divided essentially three phases. We have a first phase which it's a preprocessing stage where we get a look this images that came raw from the camera we'll look at them crop firm we discovered them and we just make sure that everything is is ready to go. There was a second phase of Manual Review Sa- currently all books that we upload have to be checked by a human for correctness, and so this is a step were. Reviewer just goes through the images in shorts that everything is fine and then when this is done, they kick off the third stage of the pipeline, which is A. Is the real processing stage where we take all of these files and compiled them in such a way that they are suitable for consumption by our web front end what we call book reader and from their wheel derive. We call them to rotate formats such as PDF, Abi e POB and either a text file. So CR it all happens at at this stage. This is kind of like the bird I view of the of the books that decision pipeline.
Voting Mechanisms And AI
"Steven Hi I'm professor RTP OF MATHEMATICS AT USC University of Southern California Excellent, and tell me a little bit about your general interest within mathematics. Before we get into the particular paper, I wanted to talk to you about a few different topics generally speaking probability probability generally construed its relation to computer science in particular theoretical computer science. Would we wind up somewhere near what is it Polynot mealtime? Generators. I don't know about a number. Generous. Followed meal time things more specifically clavo problem that can't be solved in polynomial time, and then you WANNA approximated solution in USA. How well can approximate? How can I prove that? This is the best. You can do things like that under the general category of hardness of approximation suppose why knowing lot of those cases you have one benefit may be many but benefiting a lot of problems. Like that is you can tell if a solution is valid or you have some function you're trying to optimize for I. Don't know if the same is true in voting. Is there a global way that we'd all agree that the outcomes are good or the processes? Good. Maybe that's a good way to get into your topic designing stable elections. Exactly. I mean there's a lot of A. Link to Wikipedia Pedia page somewhere it's a table and it has a list of desirable properties voting methods and there's at least maybe ten or twenty cents properties and it's impossible to have all the desirable properties no matter which voting method you have there's always gonna be some that has some that a dozen but the one property that myself and many other people who focus is how can the voting method be protected from corruption and that could be mostly what people in this community of worked on is looking at random vote corruption. So everybody cast their vote and then Tyson with some small probability they will randomly. Change some votes, and then the question is which method best preserves the election's outcome. So that's the quantity that you want to say maximize. You want to maximize the probability that the voting method preserves the outcome. When you compare the original outcome to the outcome after the votes have been corrupted one quantity, you can try to maximize very interesting. I definitely want to come back and talk more about corruption but you've got me intrigued with those properties and I know there's many of them may be I don't WanNA put your memory test, but could you talk about one or two and maybe discuss you know a Controversy around them or why they're important that sort of thing. Yes. There's a bunch one desirable property of voting method is that it doesn't succumb to the spoiler effect as we know, the Electoral College does. So how can we think about this spoiler effect the main let's change the names to some ancient name. So we don't have to deal with political of discussion in the moment, but let's say we ran election whatever two hundred whatever years ago, and there's George Washington running, and there's also a clone of George Washington running as candidates and I some third candidate on the. Fact factor means the fact that two of these clone George Washington running while people who originally if there just one George Washington, they'll just vote for that first one but two of them you'd imagine you know the original George Washington Supporters A. Vote First Josh Attendance on my vote for Evil George Washington or whatever you call the second one. So the fact that the original supporters of the person gets split between the two separate candidates we know an electoral college that means that it decreases the chance of either one of them winning, and for example, I think a last election cycle Bloomberg said, I'm not gonNA run as an independent because of this effect, you can steal votes away from someone in a sense and it can. Ruin the chance of say some candidate that may be you kind of support or something. So that's a desirable property of voting method that some of them have and some of them don't doesn't have the spoiler effect. That's that's what you are. There mechanisms than the can eliminate things like that. How do we build something like that into voting framework one voting method that avoids this it's become popular to certain people you know on the perfect voting with, but it's called instant runoff voting so. Different than what we're used to thinking about your vote is no longer just your favorite candidate. It's like a ranked list of candidates like for example on. Once going back two hundred years or something maybe your first choice most preferred candidates George Washington may be your second most preferred candidate is out in. Alexandria. Hamilton third most preferred candidate Harriet Tubman or something I don't know every single person makes list of preferred candidates and they all get submitted into whatever the election methods, which is song way of taking all those votes and just saying, okay, here's the winner and so one I think mentioned already one. Popular ranked choice voting method is called instant runoff voting on I believe it's used in Australia might even be used this coming election cycle in I'm not entirely sure but anyway so the important thing is this voting method does not have these spoiler effect

Ben's Red Carpet Ban
"Welcome to pop your source for nightmare weddings and Yoga. Ball sits. Big Round of applause I like get. Nina's often that you guys but hunters here has always and so is actress producer and. Legend. Viviana. A. Welcome. Back. Welcome where we are so excited to have you hundred GonNa Flirt with you. The entire show get prepared for them. Time Vivica just walked taping. That works for me baby just a little. Just a little took us. Describe my style of flirting. So this is. My God I'll. Little tickle we can get started now. All Right Ben Affleck was just banned from arm his upcoming James Bond Premiere at least that's what the tabloids are claiming. It's probably total but supposedly bond producers are afraid the couples pedia will overshadow the movie and Daniel Craig's okay. They have like a you've obviously you're a lot more famous than both hundred and I combined you too many movie premieres yet we like it. It's a big win for us tonight on nightly pop. If you going to an event and for movie you were in and producers said, listen you're man can't come how do you handle that challenge? Cry. Let's start right there. We've never look here. Work showed up gave as our how I not shining I. If this is true is totally unfair. Why does the girl not have to shot because she's in a grid we? Away from. She has died. He has done for them hunter. What do you think about if you could not bring me to a movie premiere as a standing date for you because your girl canceled? Would you be asset? That's okay with me and I think if they really don't want Ben Affleck showing up, put it in a city that doesn't have Dunkin donuts. I guarantee you. Not Going. There for some reason I mean honestly I have to say I don't know why I'm leaning towards this being true but I sort of believe it. I kind of feel like this sort of makes sense I mean I don't know if Ben Affleck is going to overshadow Daniel Craig's something about them always walking those. Dogs which I Got? Every day. Why it's always just so staged feeling for some reason I I do believe. I kind of believe that they're like listen just leave your boyfriend at home or moving on. While Shirley's there and knows what she wants when it comes to a relationship and the first rule is she's not going to live with anybody you guys. She recently told the mirror that she's not sure that she could live with somebody again and that he may have to buy the house next to her. She's just too old for this. Like it okay. I just want a new. And nobody's coming up here running thing but me so I'm all with their Charlie's let them know when it's happening to come over and do the deed. With after other than that stale ass next door right you. My God. First of all, my type of woman this is Great Vivica. I'm happy to buy any house near Your House I'm going GonNa have to save up a little bit but I can do it and then seconds I see where they're coming from but it also feels like Charlie's is coming from a place of she hasn't had healthy relationships lately maybe or she hasn't found that person you do want to live with I. Think we all kind of think that after we go to break, we're like no more of the opposite sex ever again taking that much of my personal mind and then raging you find someone. And you can grow with and maybe they start outside the house maybe eventually you're like, Hey, let's have toothbrushes in the same room. Let's try that out for a little while. Yeah, I feel like with Charlene I think that also when you are single for such a long time, you kind of get set in your ways and just having the idea of someone come in and just rearranging things becomes really daunting and just quite frankly really annoying and to be honest Shirley's does not need to settle. She doesn't need to do anything that is inconvenient for her at all. So like I. Totally under understand her mindset of like I don't. Yeah. Come over when you need to do the deed otherwise I don't need to be moving my cashmere sweaters for you to put your jeans and the next door take your time says the girl that got engaged in seven months. I was like, all right give it to me okay Brian. Austin. Green is getting defensive about dating multiple women after his split for Meghan Box Ryan was on the Hollywood raw podcast you listened to that a lot right with DAX holt an atom. Glenn where he said he isn't playing anybody but the whole point of dating is to talk to several people at once. What people normally do when they get out of something is they date they they talked to multiple people at once I'm not playing anybody like this is. My life is just is much more under a microscope. Let me ask you. So should he have to tell the woman? He's dating that he's seeing other people I'm GONNA ask Hunter Africa's I can't wait to hear the assay. I appreciate honesty to be very honest with you in their plans. Call dating onto someone says it's meeting. You is called dating I. Think the biggest problem is when it's rubbed in other people's faces

really we'll keep pedia Joe fictional creatures in the Star Wars franchise they are large quadrupedal mammals with long thick fur so far sounds like Donna and her first scene in the film of course it is not a bit long thick hair nice try for good luck and hope you have a full size a to scale replica of that and I think other puppets in my house all right does it feels like one of those inside thoughts yeah I just look when I went to Disney world and it'll be really interesting to see how they rebound and if people go in the same numbers and if they enjoy it the same because boy facemask in the Orlando heat is a little challenging but there is a Muppets three the thing that they had it what at the time was MGM studios and I was fifteen and they pulled back the curtain in there up in the balcony were Statler and Waldorf and who are you know the two wisecracking older curmudgeon to just make fun of them up yes that's everything else was in three D. you saw these images and then I saw all of them they're in puppet form and it was just one of the more magical moments of my life I just thought oh my gosh the thing that I've always watch always love the Muppets and now I'm in the theater and they are right there in it really looked like them it didn't look like a a mascot version of them that look like them all my gosh I wish that I be star struck yeah I really would that would be really exciting to see I and then I just love them I had a I had a Statler and Waldorf mug all men these guys tries because normally you don't like the crappy guys you know the crappy people yeah I don't like the real crabby people like human crappy people but puppets you know if your face was made of felt on I wouldn't mind it when you're cranky who's your favorite Krabby person I like it like for you don and I I think we both lake mark Merrin all yeah great because he's not really crabby he's just you know he sent a call and yeah persnickety and yes a dry sense of humor where you know you're you're laughing at his crappy now yeah you know I probably like I like Jerry Stiller there you go as George Costanza's dad Seinfeld laws have to be yeah that's a really good nothing ever goes right you know he's always yelling about it stay crappy people on TV you know like Leah Remini is character on yeah yeah you know yeah speaking of Jerry Stiller yeah he was on there to play her dad runs in the family yeah yeah anyway so I started baskets yesterday so I've been wanting you to watch this and I've watched a couple episodes in the past but it's been so long so I decided to go back because my roommate who happens to be a stand up comedian I spent a lot of time opening up for Louie Anderson but he never made do you know what watched it regularly either so we were trying to find a show that we can watch together and I was like baskets let's just watch baskets in using okay let's do it I'm Zach Galifianakis so he looks so different to me in this it's really really kind of hot oh my gosh which one and then we're all brothers hazardous him right okay yes two characters and then Louis Anders said net I mean at first glance of course this is just the first episode it's just kinda like okay that just looks like Louie Anderson wearing a wig that man in a way like it's doesn't really pull off the mom thing for me so I'm like I'm probably gonna suspend disbelief as it goes on you will by the end of it I gather love not even see Louie Anderson as a man okay anymore you'll just see him as because long baskets it's an incredible performance it's legendary I am so excited over it in the last year and it's not just I'm a man in drag right it's like he really brings so much to the character on the bayside is mom right right so good love Louis on an end I was so happy I don't even see the show and I was so happy when he won the Emmy because I thought wow that's pretty cool and I can't remember who he was observed at home okay you finish the whole thing and I just wish I was so sad when it was over how many seasons three or four gosh something like no no not so easy to get through because there are about twenty two minutes two minutes yeah oh my okay so that's my new show that I I'm just I'm mine's not new but I'm still working my way through dead to me season two I'm excited to learn about that yesterday just don't watch that one I keep on it see now I'm surprisingly intrigued by it and I think this has to do with expectations when somebody says the show's amazing then it always fall short there were enough critics that said you know the acting was there but the storyline felt too wonky I haven't felt that way and I've been waiting to but I haven't felt that way so I think maybe five episodes in and enjoying it okay see you probably would have felt that way to begin with yes I am I think that the reason why I'm not loving the second season is that some things were thrown at me that were a little hokey about certain characters a K. R. yeah I don't want to see anything other than that and also what is her name Linda hello Carl are you meaning yet it really annoyed me well Kerri Lee is really annoying but it was it's it just was so over the top for me and maybe it's just the place I'm in right now I don't want I don't have any room right now for being extricated in my in my entertainment I don't want to feel on edge about someone's character it just she's grating on my nerves yeah and so we just sort of abandoned it and we're watching you know the travel shows because we can't travel right now right speaking of crappy people what's her name Christina Applegate it's a great sarcastic angry person yes sounds good she left shoulder it's it I laugh out loud at some point every show yeah they just have I like how it's written I like that's my kind of dark ishe comedy okay well it's not like full of dark comedy because I don't know it just feels like they offer levity more often than a typical dark comedy would but I've been enjoying it I've been enjoying her character Linda Cardellini at such a train wreck that I feel so cringe G. all the time now I do too Steve it doesn't bother you now I've been working with someone like that for years now Hey good idea it was yeah buddy the one identify more with the Christina Applegate character I could see that yeah yeah right so the journey baskets season two of dead to me don's gonna talk a little bit about Downton abbey coming up at eleven because you're like a show with that right now from two thousand good thing yeah the hasn't been around I've long thought of getting into so when the deal like the crown though or did you I love the crown okay so I know the crowd slower I was a hater on the first episode I made a judgment about it and then I realize this is a slow satisfying burn okay okay I never even skip the intro I know it's so good Hans Zimmer nice next yeah let's shift into the world of a pizza a pizza pie here's a problem everybody has to go to reheat a piece of pizza in the microwave and it comes out soggy bottoms out floppy not anymore the hack that just came out of domino's in Australia for keeping your pizza crispy in the microwave coming up after the break of dawn and Steven my.

"Back to the zone. PODCAST I'm one of your co host. Charles skaggs back in the Phantom zone once again. Ready to talk. Some more watchmen as we get very very close to our Series or season hopefully season finale. And I'm joined of course by. Hi My wonderful co host. Longtime friend and fellow watchmen Watcher Jesse. Jackson how're you doing. Jesse I am great Charles You know I get sad every time you go away. Aw you take a little piece of be with you every time when you go in good use of songs it was so well done. I like their hall and John oates Yet Now that was that was a cover version by the way it was. I did not notice that. Yeah that is I'm trying to remember who originally sings it. I want to say Paul all Yang Yes yes yes Holland notes though. Doing it on a watchman. Yeah it was. It was hollering. Yeah that was a whole notes version Asian but I think I think that's Paul Young Song that there it is but yeah otherwise Yeah here everybody. Welcome back For Episode One seventy one. We're GONNA talk an almost religious. Aw Yes another. Great title from the watchmen. Comic Book Series. I'll talk about that more in a minute. Written written or is he's me aired on December. I twenty nine thousand nine. So we're kind of playing catch up again. Our schedules were not working out. So apologies for not then losing track again. But we're GONNA talk a little bit we're going to have the same problem with with Dr who You know Sunday Sunday nights are tough because Sunday mornings are jam. Sunday mornings were blocked off Charleston. I do are podcasting. And so when there's a show Sunday night it makes it a little bit more difficult to find time so for an APP to figure it out we'll figure it out because I'm more flexible lexical. I'm willing to use that. DVR Technology Center but This episode written by Stacey Kafor and Claire Kyko Heiko so this is the first story I episode not written by Damon Lindelof. Okay so I thought that was kind of interesting thing. But it's still a solid episode in my absolutely another great one directed by David Semel. WHO's also new to watch men? And I. I WANNA get your general thoughts on this before we get into our discussion. So so Jesse what overall what did you think of this episode seven. I really loved it. I think I think everything about this series continues to get better. It's clear there is a few things I didn't like about this episode. But they were too small for me to nitpick too much For the first time I thought the Adrian vet a plot was did not need it. But everything else was just really great I almost don't want another seasons because less for me I know but it's just you you there's something about you set. The bar are so high right. Are you going to be able to do it again. And I do get the feeling that Unless they can come up with another story that is this solid solid. I don't know if they will go for another one because I'm sure. HBO wants this. 'cause as we tweeted viewers are really high on this. Yeah apparently currently this is one of HBO's Highest rated shows in a good while. Yeah I can't remember the last show was that got this kind of initial reaction positive reaction and I won. I WANNA season two. If only to find out what happened to Dan Driver D- Yet good because they we know always imprison. Yeah but I want to know the events about how he got there why he and Laurie or separated why she decided to end up. Working for the The FBI while you Kinda know that a little bit because the PD pedia. Yeah Pedia I want to see on screen And I know Linda Office said you will not see Dan this season right so gas keywords being this season yes yeah I just. They haven't not announced the second season. I just I know now were were arguing about to greatness yes Yeah and don't get me wrong. If if they give a second season I am. I'm just saying that's how much I'm loving. This is just like this is so good and how about you. Are you happy with the episode. I was very happy with it. It was nice is to get some more background about Angela Vietnam when she was younger a child and and you know we got more. Obviously the of the modern Angela with lady true and beyond who are lady true and beyond are two very epigrammatic characters that Are are just you know one of the one of the greater mysteries of this this season and I'm I'm always looking forward to finding out a little bit more about their background. And we basically got a much greater explanation of the true villain behind this series. Yes and and what their plot is. So we'll talk about that because I have four topics four topics I want to talk about. I want to talk about young Angela. The second topic. I want to talk about the Modern Day Angela. The older Angela Lady True and Beyond and third topic Lori. Jane and Joking Okay. So so Jane Crawford Joking Lori and then four topic we have to talk cal. Because there's there's a nice little revelation at the end confirming what a lot of people were suspecting online. Yeah I had not I oh I did not see this still a couple of weeks ago. I guess. Two weeks ago where On my phone when I go to Google it tells tells me It knows what I normally Google about. So it gives us an suggested you know five theories before tonight's episode in the first theory theory was that cow was doctrine Hatton spoilers and That's the first I've heard of that and You know I think they played fair with us and it. It was great. Yeah and you said from the beginning you thought there was something going on with him. Well I remember. I was focused on like okay. What's the deal with his accident? Something's up with that. Yeah because they just kind of casually drop this information is and I figured well there has to be more the story. What's the accident? Yeah because that sounds sounds kind of important and Obviously I think we're going to get the pay off of that you know we're going to get that story in our next episode. Yes yes and we'll talk about that when we talk about. What's coming up next on the fan zone at the end of the episode? So stay all right. So let's get into our low discussion ocean. Obviously we've got a lot of the characters that were have been introduced already in this episode although we get like an older junie Abbar and we get young Angela. We get to see more of Angela's parents. Marcus Abar and lease as far as we get to the story of more of how they died which I thought was interesting Trivia. This time I want to talk about the title and an almost religious awe if you're wondering about that title it's from Dr Manhattan's own recollections describing the reaction of the Vietnamese soldiers that surrendered to him when America won on the Vietnam War. And this of course you know. Depicted in the original watchmen series back in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight six. The quotas taken directly from watchmen number. Four page twenty panel to if you're curious and where Dr Manhattan recites the line you you know describing their reaction to him and he says describes it as their terror of me balanced by an almost religious. Aw Yeah were they kinda see themselves kind of like Bowing down to him in subservience in as L. as he they view him as a as a God essentially really yes and because of his great power and then second bit of Trivia. Want to talk about When we see that Dr Manhattan Marionette Annette being controlled by puppeteer That's a reference to align said by Dr Manhattan when Laurie In in the original comic book when asked if he's just a puppet following a script in issue number nine if curious about that and he responds. We're all puppets Laurie. I'm just a puppet who can see the strings. Yes so very cool. Quote by Alan Moore. Writer of watchmen in that one and Some significance I think in this episode all right. And probably the upcoming watchmen episodes. So let's drive right it into our main topics topic number one young Angela. So let's talk about Angela as a kid in Saigon Vietnam Vietnam of course being the US's fifty first state in this alternate reality where thanks to Dr Manhattan America one Vietnam War instead of losing using it and Took it on as fifty first state. So what was your take about. seeing getting more young Angela in this episode breath of I really liked seeing young Angela. you know. I love her octopus of your growing up in Vietnam Tom. She did not see a lot of people that looked like her and so that's why she wanted to watch that. VHS Tape and It's I think it's interesting. That her dad because of his background with his Father Aka hooded justice. Yes you know you. Don't trust people with masks ask. We're not gonNA watch that And the idea that Her parents were killed in front of ver- very Batman Ish yes You know so I liked it. I liked everything about the storyline. I I thought it was interesting. The the Vietnamese lady detective or cop you know Oh giving her a badge saint come look for me and then of course how poorly she's treated in the orphanage right and you think she's going to get some hope and then her she's dashed again so yeah when her grandmother you know the older June you know who the justices wife who Who left him as we found out? comes to claim her. Yes because you know. Her son is dead so Angela is ends up in this orphanage as a result. The problem is you know after they sit down and have a nice meal or something. They often get into a taxi cab to go to the airport. Presumably and Angela's Mo- our grandmother Walks around to the other side The taxi and apparently has a heart attack. Yes because she had talked about during the meal she had had a small little stroke. Nothing to worry about right and and then obviously it was. Yeah apparently so. Yeah so I kind of curious about okay so if Angeles grandmother died How does I should get from Vietnam to America? Well And I think she grew up in Vietnam and then the story right was that her in cow. How got tired of being in Vietnam and there was an opening right at You know so. That's why she moved But obviously that doesn't that's that's not true though because especially if you check out the PDIP Pedia pedia little mini site that HBO's kind enough to provide died. 'cause we have a nice little hospital report of cow so the question is you know like That apparently they just randomly met her. That you know that she was an officer that found him. Yes so So I'm wondering obviously we'll maybe we'll get more of the story next week about how that happened and ABC curious how she got from Vietnam to America. Well and I it is America. I guess the fifty first State but yeah what what mainland has what I was wondering is why Tosa and You know was it because you know she knew her grandmother was there was was from there. You know why. What about that kind of led to it and it is GONNA be curious if they can show us why they made that choice? Yeah so Yeah we'll see what happens now. Pedia pedia does say though there was a a large population of African Americans who migrated to Vietnam. But but not the other way around. So we'll see how again. Yeah how they ended backup and tells him well. I guess it's kind of a home for because her grandmother came from there.

One of the best in the business masters bayton tackle, if you have questions comments Fisher imports bring him right here this morning because nobody can get you straightened out like Larry. Let's go to Tarpon John this morning, John. How are you buddy? Captain, mike. Good morning. What's up? I hope you had a film crew with you and key west down there filming some shows trying to wrap trying to wrap up season thirteen here thought, you're on vacation. I tell people I tell people all the time if you if you see a picture of me fighting Tarpon or you see me fighting Tarpon look for the cameras because there's a camera somewhere. Otherwise, I am not fighting. I like to jump and dump them unless we're filming we need to face touch for sure. Creature? Yeah. Exactly, I didn't need to go to the gym. I did not need to go to the gym while I was in the keys by the bite was good enough. Couple of questions for captain Larry and Mike known in as well if you'd like Ilaria was reading a captain's corner article where j mastery is your cousin or your brother? My cousin first cousin. Anyway, I I enjoy around. Has one or two good cafes? I live kinda Howard Franklin Bridgen. I've got the use of a friend's small nineteen foot flat votes on somewhat limited in the range at I'm willing to to chase Tarpon not willing to go twenty five miles to being pulling. But he had mentioned a couple of places that I think might be in my range if you knew where they are. One is called the bootleg bootlegs. Good. Bootlegs at beer, Kent island right next to MacDill there. But more towards MacDill cut in there. Okay. Deep cut and the other one is Franklin whole Franken holes a little a little more difficult. But it's basically on the Saint Pete side okay of the bridge, and it would be the south south part of the bridge. And there's actually like a dreadful in there. And it's it's reasonably close to bridge is probably I don't know three four hundred yards. I guess okay. Okay. Alone. Where that obelisk is says welcome to Saint pedia, exactly. You can actually see the whole in there. When you when you go recorder, but that's a good spot. Westinghouse another good spot. Yeah. Familiar with that? Get out there on the edge of Apollo beach on the outside edge park their lot of Fisk it out there. But those are. My next question is given that I have a limited range, and I've got you know, these four or five spot. If you were me and you pull up to one of these spots. Do you look for actual tarp actively before you start fishing? Move on. I usually look I use. She's the visual for me in the bay. I got it. Okay. I like to see him, you know, then I feel there's there's some places you blind fish. But I would I would certainly want to visualize them. I didn't try to get in an area where you see most of them and anchor up and fish that area. Fishman fish are. Okay. So if you do not see evidence that there there you then moved to another do unless you really know something unless you got a really good feel for particular area particular tied or whatnot. But most of the time I I like to visually see them. Okay, Trivet last question is not really Relator in might be for Jim Fogel. But we'd Nyland a couple of weeks ago. And I noticed they were signs that says, no, internal combustion engines. Does that mean you have an internal combustion engine on your boat? You can't go in there. You just can't use it. You can't use it. You can push pull in those areas. You control trolling motor in those areas. But you just can't use your big motor. Gotcha. Okay. Terrific. Today's the day. John STAN touch with his buddy. I know this is your season kid. Thank you. Good stuff. Good stuff. Let's get our freshwater report where we're going. We're going to go to freshwater report from Ron out a beautiful. Ron's tackle box and lake. Alfred Rodney, how are you? Good mother's day everybody. Good point almost. Yeah. Tomorrow. Good good.

Good stuff. Right there. Look at this guy. I was just wondering what was up with the mad snooker. I actually had some people barking at me on my my podcast reviews that they me to get a podcast with the mad snooker. What do you think? Let's doing. Yeah. We're going to have to try to get you in the schedule here next couple of weeks. But everybody wants me to want to talk Tarpon with Dave Marquette. They want me to talk snook tips with the mad snooker. So we're going to do that. I know it. Well, he's on my list. There is going to join me to. I haven't picked on him yet. I've only done about think I've done eight of them. Now my child again, I think we've been about up and running for about two months. So what about four thousand downloads a week? So they're going pretty good. Yeah. And actually what I've been doing is. I've been doing a lot more about the angler or the person that I'm talking to kind of a history what brought them to fishing and all that. And I haven't dove into the tips as much, but I think that's the direction we're going to go. I think we're going to try to crank up some more. Some more tips to stuff. Yeah. Maybe you know, obviously, you want to if you get a an incredible story like Larry mastery on there something like that. You know, it's I think people want to know what you know, what drove Larry to this. You know to the fish lifestyle to live this way. And you know, eat man, Tarver tarp. Exactly. Yeah. For sure right. Yeah. Using the new hummingbird site finder the one that tells you how long they are. And what it weighs? To those fact. Site finder. Honestly, without being I guess you gotta stick with his sponsors. But what what is the best site actually show you that silhouette of the fish and a residential canal. The Ray marine stuff works really well in in in. Here's the reality. And obviously, I am Ray marine sponsor guy. But I was you know, I was lorraine's for many years and had no complaints with the stuff. I was actually on some boats filming this week that had the garment stuff now, none of the boats. I was on had side imaging which was really puzzling to me because I think down there those bridges outside. Imaging would be a lot easier than running over the top of the doc. I agree that side imaging has changed the game. And here's the reality. The reality is if you go to a place that has multiple machines and multiple brands you can play with those, you know, everything has a test mode. A what's the word? I'm looking for. Anyway. Demo. Thank you. Everything can go into demo moats you can push buttons and make it do stuff in Osho you stuff demo mode. So you can kind of get a feel for what you like you can, you know, spend a little time. Because all the brands are really. I mean, it's a it's like a it's almost like cellphones. You know what I mean? -nology is changing. And and these companies are so cutting edge now that real vision three d that Ray marine came out with is spectacular. The way it maps out the bottom Jaimie Goodwin is wrecking the tarp it in Boca GRANDE pass because he can actually map out that bottom and see. Right. Where those fish are whether they're suspended whether they're on the bottom with they're all they're all hugging. The right of it or the left of it. I mean, it's it's some really neat stuff. But all the companies do really neat stuff. So you just have to get in there. Find a price point that makes you happy for your budget. And then find the machine that gives you the tools that you need to go catch. We'll say this the bigger screens Deva's an advanced bigger screen. I like the twelve. Eleven twelve. Ever marine twelve a my lower and a nine upstairs in my tower. And it's it's a really nice setup. I was on a boat. I was on a boat a forty four contender S T their new flagship boat, and he had twin twenty four inch screens on it. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. Sixty thousand dollars electrons. So those like, yeah, I'm out of that whole thing. But it was impressive to look out. I mean, it was it was something else. Sixty. Impressive like a hundred sixties brother. Laughed at me when I told you never had a GPS on my boat finder. It's crazy. You know, what I think about that? Especially when every time I pull into key Largo, one of the very first time, I was ever in the keys. I went down there to fish red fish tournament. And we were running out of key Largo because the ranger dealer was in key Largo and ranger was tied to the IFA back, then so I didn't have I was running a little action craft flats boat in nineteen and I didn't have a GPS or fish finder on it will now we had to run to the Glades. And if you ever on the keys, you know, it's all about like little woods sticks with a little pointer on top to tell you which side of the channel beyond and you're running in two and a half three foot of water. And on each side. You can see the mangrove flutes are out of the water where there's six inches of water on the side if there's a boat coming through that chute, but you can't see the other end of you're not both gonna make it through my head to run it. I had to run it all off the maps you had to you know, in your compass, which was like, what is this whole having to use the stuff we learned in captain school crap. I mean, it was terrible. But we did it. I always think about that. When we went down. I don't know how you would do it at night without a machine I. Tonight. Yeah. Yeah. Is like a vampire or now at night. But I guess the damage the daylight. Black guerrilla grass everywhere. I call it grill is not. I call gross not too. And I'm not sure what that is. There's a lot of it. Yeah. There's a lot of it this year. And it seems to be I don't know. I don't know it is. I mean, I've dealt with it. But. Beats me to come little later than this July. Does this come later because we do a lot of bottom fishes stuff on the beach. You you're you're not fishing. Many places the last three nights in a row that I couldn't because of eighty wait guerrillas not. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know what that is either. I don't know how. You're next caller. I really appreciate it. You know, I heard Larry I got a call. Appreciate knows where you're going. Here for you there. Yeah. I was gonna call you make sure you're alright. Run around out there in the dark all crazy like so I'm glad you're doing nights shoot. I wanna do. Let's schedule that that's a good idea that schedule that for the fall, and we're gonna I'm gonna touch base with you here probably next week because I need to get that podcast with you..

If you can see have you ever tried to like communicate that Tim somehow, I think I did send a note, you know, inviting him to thanksgiving, and I haven't heard, but I will say this that sometimes it works. If like a social network, it's like the new social network because Florida this book I wanted to introduce I wanted to interview George H W Bush because I figured he was the pay.

Our n I might get something that was both about Finland and possibly mostly sensible. Not at this at this point. I think that the amount of work you would have to put into this project of generating Finland paper and especially fixing the mistakes at the end. 'cause of course thing doesn't know it already told you the population of Finland so it's going to tell you the population of Finland like three or four times. And you're gonna have to go through and line at this thing in sale of the population of Finland is this I will I will lead this one up front because I, you know, you'll have to do the supply structure in edited that way, and I think by the time you do all of that you will have done as much work and understood about as much about Finland is if you'd actually the paper scratch so fair game. Like if I was a teacher and a student went that result. But ended up with a coherent paid for Finland at the end. I would have to give out have to give them credit for it. If we're right in the thing. By that everything. I mean, if you started looking at you say, oh, no, this thing was actually copying full sentences which contend to do you do have to watch for that. So that is a flip side as far as ease out. Grids are concerned. Exactly copying your input data word for word is a perfect solution to the problems they're given. So if they can possibly do that they will. And that's part of why you need so much data is to stop it from being able to memorize the whole thing. Can that's an overturned neural network? Yeah. Oh, yeah. Over fitting can be boring. It's funny that it's boring in this context. And it's terrible. In many of you know, I mean, I mean, we're we're talking low stakes here. But one of the reasons it's good to play on this because it is fairly low stakes and the end up with funny things, but you're not crashing a car. You also do images images work with an RN.

"Well, I mean, first of all most academics. If they're like me. I think most of them are Fe don't want. You to cite encyclopedia articles, no matter. Or how good they are in your work. Of course, you can use them as as references in the sense that you read the article to get a bit of background in the subject -absolutely. But you know, I would enact dynamic support ever pedia as a source of articles. Well, because while a lot of the articles on a subject in ever pedia might be a no good. According to the expert, the expert also knows that he or she and their friends have gotten together, and basically identified what the best articles are right? So if you wanna learn about the cosmological argument for the existence of God, then in the fullness of time there will be released dozens I imagined professors of philosophy. He specialized in philosophy of religion. And they will have basically identified what the best article on this subject is then they'll say, yeah. We'll just go and find the expert. Proved article on the cosmological argument. And that's what your professor might tell you got it got it. That's ever before we go into general questions is how you going to make that change that flipped to have a vast amount of resources on the site. Or you gonna hire a lot of people to do entries. Incentivize, we compete weirdos to go over there and start writing forever Bedia. Well, first of all, although we have added a million articles of our own to the initial articles that we for from Ricky pedia. Most of our articles are in fact for from we compete, we we haven't been refreshing them lately. But that's something that we're committed to doing. My prediction is that we're going to have that feature by the end of next year. So we're going to basically import the latest Wikipedia versions of articles to the blockchain pretty soon. So if you wanna look at the latest Wikipedia article, you'll be able to do it via ever pedia, but you. Will be able to do it alongside a lot of other articles as well. You know, basically the way that you get people to switch to a new system is you convince them that it's a better system. And I think we can do that not only will people be able to unlock value for themselves. The basically earn tokens by writing and editing articles in the system, which I think is going to be a pretty important motivator. But the the whole idea that ever pedia will play host to a new kind of intellectual competition, and we're going to be at the center of it. If you want to write a better article on a subject then exists in we compete you or anywhere else. We will be the place to do it. And if it really is better it will leap over the other articles quickly. And you know, you won't have to do any sort of SEO in. In order to get to the top of the rankings. It will be based on matters of merit. According to the people that you care about that. I lied about the last question. This is the last question new Newton pedia citizen diem the traditional encyclopedias. They're all gone. They're not there anymore, but why will ever pedia or this idea of of an encyclopedia in the blockchain persistence of the future, new pedia and citizen diem are both going to live on in Rick pedia and in ever pedia..
"pedia" Discussed on CRYPTO 101
"Pedia? So let me just back up to about twenty fifteen and explain this crater Wiki idea that I had so for over a decade after permanently cutting ties with Ricky pedia, I have been thinking about different ways of improving on the recopied Lia model and to make a long story short. I hit upon what I think is a superior model about twenty fifteen. The idea is imagined that we simply collect all the encyclopedia articles in the world. We put them in a database, or at least links to them in a database and allow everyone to rate the articles. So then you can imagine going to an article or a page rather about God. And seeing a half a dozen. Maybe few dozen articles about God, they're written from all different points of view, and it would be possible to. To rate them you picked race small topic. Therefore, your example. Yeah. And just imagine that we announced that we are going to be allowing the world to give their own independent reviews or ratings anyway of all of the contents of Wikipedia and all the other encyclopedia articles in the world. That would be kinda huge news. I don't think anyone has done that. And I've certainly never done that. Then the idea is what if we enable people to volunteer information about themselves their nationality, their sex, their politics or religion, their college major all kinds of different things. Right. And then imagine ranking and re ranking the articles about God, according to whether a person is a Christian versus a Jew or a Muslim or an atheist French versus. American women versus men it'd be fascinating actually to see what would come up on top. According to interestingly, different groups, right. And then, of course, one of the kinds of groups would be expert groups, right there could be professional organizations and academic organizations that could be the faculties of university departments. And it would be really fascinating to see what those different groupings of people think are the best articles about their areas of expertise. And again, this has never existed before. And if it were properly set up, then it would be I think one of those things where if you build it, they will come. You can information be decentralized like this in my first question is is you're staking your tokens to add an article and said that the community can accept it or reject it. And you lose your money. There's two things like one what if you are an expert, but you're not confident on the community. How do you know that? How do you have the confidence as an editor to stake of monetary value to make an edit not knowing the actual process of evaluation of your work? It could be likely you said, you're editing something on a Hindu God. And a Christian community voted down. This. This is one one example. And ensure sure let me clarify that we are going to have as I said are really minimal standards about what should be allowed in the repeating network. We are going to support multiple articles on different topics that means there has to be support for lots of different points of view that no there can't be a privileged point of view. And we can't have stringent editorial standards to say that is basically to commit to not being decentralized. The only way to be fully decentralized is if you're wide open to a huge array of points of view and. That means considering that most points of view for most people are points-of-view that they reject at least when it comes to the big questions when it comes to God. For example, you don't agree with most points of view can pretty much guarantee that and you would reject article written from a point of view that is foreign to you. We don't want the decisions to be made based on community sentiments at all we want this to be open to all different communities. And then we're going to do is. We're just going to have the rating data as meditated lives on the blockchain. But it doesn't run the blockchain if if you see it I'm saying, how are you going to convince academia to allow you to use this as a reference?.
"pedia" Discussed on CRYPTO 101
"Crypto wanna one now back to the show. So a big problem with week pedia is that is not accepted, by academia, we Kapadia as huge. I think it's the go-to for anything. Would you search information online, Google and Wiki Wiki and Google it who knows? But this is the place you go how can the next evolution start answering? Some of these problems that we just discussed when it comes to like the rating system we ever pedia going to include that is the structure going to be crafted in the future is Daimiel going to accept these new evolution of the online information source. How are we moving to the future? And what is every pedia going to do? Well, basically insure ever pedia is aiming to solve all of those problems. And I can explain each of the things that you mentioned how we're going to do it. So yeah, let's let's let's get down to it ever pita. Is we compete on the blockchain. Why do you need ever pedia on the blockchain the reason that Sam Kasmin and the other principals at ever pedia had in mind, what sort of got them onto the idea in the first place is they wanted to motivate people to participate and giving them ownership and giving them a way to actually work into something of monetary value by working on the unsigned Kapadia by actually sharing the value. That has created when they work on an encyclopedia is basically how it ought to be. And so there's a huge motivation factor. That's one big advantage that blockchain encyclopedias we'll have over traditional Wicky encyclopedias that we will continue to have that sort of collaboration. We can continue to be Ricky. But we're actually going to be co owners. In something. We will actually be earning tokens for the work that we do. And that's pretty huge the thing that really excites me. It all stems from the fact that the blockchain is decentralized decentralizes the writing of an encyclopedia, and that means that you don't actually have to negotiate with the Wikipedia community or even the ever pedia community. You know, have to negotiate with community at all to participate in the encyclopedia. You will be able to submit an article that you wrote on medium or that you wrote for Britannica or wherever they're publishers will be able to contribute, and we will be as I have said in the past. We'll be the super set encyclopedia the greater Wiki at that encompasses all of the encyclopedia articles. So why should it be the case that if you want to work on the biggest most important encyclopedia on earth? You should have to negotiate with that small group of kind of weird people that work on Ricky pedia. Why should you have to do that? I hope they're not listeners of Dobruna. Win the weird Wiki people. I apologize guys. That's okay. I'm weird myself. So has quite alright. So so we have it on the on the blockchain to incentivize people to take part into it and also decentralize so everybody can add into it without negotiating with the weird people in in the center, what about the quality than of every pedia? How do we bridge that gap of it is a gap? If anybody who has been in a university chair and wander write a paper and got all their information for Wiki, and then can't use it it sucks. So how do we bridge from academia to into the? Line encyclopedia. Sure, there's a couple of things to say there two the first is if you want to contribute to and use blockchain, which is what ever pedia is actually have to stake a certain amount of tokens said away. There are staking mechanism works is you actually have to put up a small amount of accu- tokens. And you lose those tokens. If you're edit is rejected by the community. So that means that although we have and I hope we'll continue to have a low bar of admission to get information into the European network. We certainly do have standards such as no copyright infringement. No liable no threats things like that. Right. Okay. So then that's a sort of baseline level of quality. That's baked into the blockchain system that isn't baked into Ricky system. Now, we get to the part that kind of gets me excited, and the reason that I got on board riff..
