"There. And I think I also remember your writing, maybe saying that when you were very young, you made a promise to the writing gods that you would write. Probably every day of your life going forward, whatever happened to the red in whatever success or failure came to it. And so in a part of me, the selfish part wants you to open the notebook and tell us how he's writing helped you deal with everything that life throws at you. It's my it's my portal. I've felt for most of my life that there's something that longs to be in contact with us with me certainly as much as I long for it. It's attention that goes both ways. I think the Sufi is called it a harp string. You pluck one side of it and the resonance is felt on the other. You pluck that side the resonance is felt on the other. I feel very strongly that there's an intelligence in the universe that wants to communicate with us. And I think that it tries to find us in, however, we are most that we can most find it. So I have friends who are incredibly kinesthetic. I've got a friend who's an extraordinary dancer and she feels it when she dances and writing has always been that for me. Writing was my first prayer. And now it's become the place where I pray. I pray on the page. And because I've always felt a thing calling me to do it and wanting to engage in this with me and wanting to teach me how to do it and wanting to wanting me to listen to it. And wanting me to cooperate with it rather than fight it. So yeah, writing has brought me my God. Yeah. I think writing has made me believe much more than I would, otherwise. Because things come out of me or out of the air. I would never have guessed were there. Small miracles, all the time, and they make a sense that my mind could never construct. You know, maybe I would write something about what we're talking about today. And a week later, something happens that speaks exactly to what came out of my subconscious, which is far wider than I could ever be. But one way or another, it's a way of suggesting that there are patterns that work in the world. Beyond any that we could begin to grasp or explain, which is a comfort, given that you and I have been talking about uncertainty and these challenges that putting us in place and that we never saw coming. And these beautiful intricacies too. And an order in the world that we never imagined. I mean, when I think about hope, one of my favorite phrases has always come from the sort of philosopher king baklava is an amazing thing a writer who suddenly 7 weeks after being in prison became president of his country. And I think he said something like hope is not the conviction that everything will turn out right, because it usually doesn't. It's just the notion that there is an order to things. We'll never know what it is, and we'll never know why job keeps protesting his love and gets punished for it again and again, or why children get cancer when they're two years old. All of this we can't understand or explain away. But hope is a sense that there's something else there that has a plan or has a logic that we wouldn't be able to sense. And somehow, even that can make us feel better. Whether you call it God or the intelligence, just that there's something out there. And that the world isn't left in the hands of tiny Liz and tiny pico. It's a no, we would do great at running it. Running this just do what we said. As we all think, there's a wonderful Stephen Mitchell passage where he writes about Jacob and Jacob in the Old Testament encountering a stranger in the night and realizing that it's an angel. And then wrestling with it until daylight. And Stephen Mitchell writes that this beautiful passage about what happened to Jacob as he became older. And this is sort of in Stephens envisioning of it by the end of his life. He found that he wanted nothing but what God wanted. He wanted nothing but what God in all grace had already given. If you take out God and replace it with Dow, it's a very similar idea. You know, I don't want anything but what the Dow wants. What is the Dow? If you take out Dow and replace it with reality, I don't want anything except what reality wants. You know, those are all interchangeable ideas. The way the path, the Taoist idea that wood is split more easily if you split it along. It's along its grain rather than against that doesn't mean that I can't join with people who are working to improve the lives of other people and add my energy and my voice to that because that feels like what the Dow wants. You know, that feels like what the way is that feels like what the universe is asking for. More of this less of that, more of mercy, less of condemnation. More equality, less injustice. So why wouldn't I add my energy to that field? You know? Because actually not to do that would be harmful. So that's what I go to actually have that quote on my refrigerator of he wanted nothing but what God wanted, nothing but what God in all grace had already given. I mean, that's the at what possible more serenity could you have than that? And if I hope for anything for myself personally, it's to learn how to do that. If I hope for anything for the world, it's that we learn how to do that. I also think what you were just saying is almost an explanation of what growing up is all about, which to me is about seeing that my ideas of the world are always going to be much less rich deep and surprising than the world itself. And I remember as a kid and maybe like many of us, a pandemic would arrive. And I would say this is a horror. Rather than seeing that there might be an opportunity as well as a loss contained in it. And then I would maybe dream of as you did writing a book that sold a million copies and thinking, this is wonderful. Not realizing that there are traps within success as much as in failure. As you saw it. And I think as we're talking about hope, I'm getting the sense that a large part of it is surrender, which is the surrendering of our hunger for explanation or our need for ideas or our sense that we're on top of the world. Because we're usually on the bottom of it. And also, therefore, about humility. You know, I'm always very moved every time I see Pope Francis speak. He goes right through me. I can almost feel a sense of compassion. But what completely knocks me out every time is at the end, he'll say, he look plaintively at this audience, and say, please pray for me. In other words, you know, I'm just another suffering human being at the mercy of who knows what I'm not the guy running the world, or even probably running the church. I'm just please pray for me. And I think Catholics often say that, but whoever you are, just ending with that, when you're a person that others look to as a voice of authority or wisdom is one of the most moving things, you can offer, because he's essentially extending a hand. I will pray for you, but please, please pray for me. I'm Francis and nonetheless, my life is not so easy..

"A friend. Look the only one. I'm usually interesting to hear from all i mean. I think it's it'd be very hard to judge. Yaacob son on his reaction immediately after the finish line. Because you know he's not had time to compose himself or to really arrange his thoughts properly. You know he would have been gearing up for the sprint there. He'd been better disappointed that there were these splits. And he wasn't able to hang onto his train that would have been his overriding emotion at the time and not not what came out in his first exchange semi show. I don't think. I think it's fair to i. I said that the mask slip and and you know we saw something quite revealing and we did but what we saw was. His determination to win has focused on winning which was overwhelming for him at the time. And i don't. I don't think it would be fair to judge him too harshly not particularly when you know when when he's calmed down and moved on that he he has apologized. And i i'm sure now feels very happy for senate shall i mentioned james knox as as touched on the in his. You hear that in columbus zero on monday. Clearly there was a bit of a discussion in the team. And i'm sure matters have been resolved now talked to be disappointed both with his own inability to follow the wheels. And perhaps with the you know the the stark reality of elite professional sport in the heat. The moment what we talking about. We're talking about two to three minutes of action at the end of a long hot day of racing. That's perfectly understandable. But i don't think that Van liba or sensuality. Anything wrong net job as the lead is to keep the pace as high as possible and we saw the other day when you know. Perhaps the pace wasn't quite high. Enough and f education nipah were able to take advantage of that and jump and netter state win from mechanised corps you. You can't eat off two kilometers inside the final two kilometers because your sprinter isn't holding wheel you know if finish our had behind him to always not following is not you know yeah they.

"And i've been speaking to mahomes Quite a bit here of ton and he's told me how well he still has a lot of regrets Over that day in italy in the last year because he felt he paid his fellow breakaway. is too much respect that day and he'd been slightly overawed having having ridden for years on the british domestic scene and he was in the world tour in the grand tour and he didn't really believe in himself enough and he was pretty pretty determined not to let that happen again. A car. remember whether we've already also discussed his spreadsheet At the he'll to me earlier in the vuelta there before the right. He prepared a chart which he then Meister tease out of him. That is some form. Spreadsheet and color-coded spreadsheets some of the stages cost Yellow stages summa green red and it turned out. Today was a green stage stage when he thought that he might. Well have a chance if you did go in the break. He gave it a pretty good go. And who knows without those two punctures that you mentioned in the tail of the tapa line. We could have been even better for him. But i call up off the finish on the peak of the their beer gas. Well my is what is being with some very strong rises. Not very lucky. I think you had two punctures. Just tell us when it happened. Well i started the attack in. Go away go by a minute gap. And then i go puncture and then Yeah i really didn't want to be in a situation that we were with body. Because he was going to windsor. So yeah i was desperate to get away without him. So i go across the breakaway again own. Which is a big effort and then on the climb ten k. To go onto the puncture to catch up again and then yeah just just desperately wanted to get away without basically he. Wasn't that much better so it was. You know it was doable. So i kept trying eventually thrown away. You told me days ago that you were angry yourself lost the jiro for being intimidated. When you're in a breakway by the other guys. I guess that wasn't the case today. Know exactly the opposite know. I'm going to get out in front and Stay on the front and it was definitely the way to do it. I think maybe maybe people disagree. Because i didn't win but yeah felt good doing it that way. And we've heard already about your spreadsheet where you decide which status today green bay yellow day. Yeah i think it was a green day not really checked it but i remember thinking very steep Before we turned off the big main road so yeah it was green day instead of cement climb. You went second over the top of that behind bar day. How was that climb the steep one. It wasn't so bad. We didn't go hard but i had to.

I happen to be staying on a golf course tonight. You have interviewed the you didn't the great mountains someone and someone pulled it out.

Well named one of his sons after mcgowan during well well stage. Fourteen one non starter. Richard counterparts pulled out. Didn't stop the stage today. In your screen not is lose man and while the whole race was shaped by a break of eighteen ride is a big lead ten minutes and it was still around about ten minutes. Fifty kilometers to go and in fact got went up over the last fifty kilometers of the stages Rogers at the front for the victory point. Four riders went clear. Nikola proteome no relation to christian prudhomme a variety with ag to our matt holmes of lotter pseudo and fat welter veteran danny varna. They went clear and homes had the misfortune to puncture out of the break. We're here a little bit later on. That was actually his first two punctures. Today there was another bit of drama when j join who is a bit further back in the second group of of the main break. We talked a bit about him. Being the winner of swift academy The other day he crashed when he was taking a bottle from the teen cau- and went down pretty heavily but that wasn't the end of him. Either gnawed at the end of homes because he forty back up to the front to and then set by market. Join them to make it four then. Some more drama. When nevada and bamako went down on a corner on the descent that left proteome out in front on heroin and he went into the bottom of the climb. Still clear now. There was quite headwind on the long fine climb but he did look good on the first half of the climb but perhaps Beginning to tell as they reached a second half Andrei zeitz was chasing and then came a group of vine. Who'd forty way back up and bought. I very much was the shark in the water today. The of the ride is in that break. Probably the most likely winner the most dangerous man with around seven and a half to go. Tom pitcock started to light things up a bit going off in pursuit of the lead. Then i came back together again with around six kilometers to go but that was actually the point which body bridged up as part of that group and just went straight on past and that was that was the winning move. He held on to win the stage. The next to ride over the line were heydrich harada of fish and j vine and often that came pitcock shampoo san homes zeiss.

It's january and that means one thing for the fast casual record industry. A focus on healthy eating right if you've made a new year's resolution eat fewer carbs to go vegan to start the paleo diet.

2021 Voice AI Predictions with Thadani, Tingiris, Stapleton, and Fields

"Welcome back to the voice about podcast. Worse okay so we're gonna get your prediction is why don't you just tell who rain agency and what you do. Short so ran is an agency that sales voice assistant experiences for large companies. We work with companies like nike nestle. Flat rock in the win and we really help them design and build conversational experiences. That are going to drive business. Value so You know some our collaborations in work have been with google on. Abc mouse and we also recently built a experience for the win hotel. Las vegas where we implemented a voice enabled concierge in their hotel rooms Slept on the work that we do. That's awesome well. I shouldn't have to talk about some of these projects you've been doing so we'll figure out an appropriate time for that. Because i'm i'm interested in what's going on with the win. They were an early adherent to voice. I know they've continued to invest. So that's a good example but today's focus is on what we should expect to the voice. Ai industry over the next year and to summarize you're looking at the rise of owned some people call them cost them some people call them branded voice assistance. Why don't you describe what that is to you and why you think that that's going to come to pass. Yes so You know. I think we've all been seeing. Rain has been very bullish on this space of own voice assistance. So these are you. Can think of america's erica or walmer. Ask sam so rather than relying on the army. Assistant landforms forms like alexa. Google assistant like some of these brands have in the past. They're building their own ranted. Ai assistance That sit on their own channels. They more control over the user experience in the data that comes out of those experiences and the reason that we've been particularly bullish on this in our twenty twenty one. Prediction is just based on a lot of the antitrust regulation conversation. That's been happening over the past year. in in our view at rain there has been unprecedented. Scrutiny of tat as a whole. It's really the first time that you know. Government leaders across both sides of the aisle are taking a vested interest in antitrust topics. Actually trying to understand them and understand that they're asking. There's a lot of reason to believe that they tech companies may not look like they do right now in twelve to eighteen months in q. Add on top of that. What's been happening just past week with twitter and amazon apple after some recent events is just more ammunition that will fuel this conversation around breaking big tech which will certainly impact voice assistance. Kind of how. How wall yeah. I think that's interesting. I was just talking to someone earlier today about this. They brought something up. And i said you know. There's a lot of companies out. There have been focused on different things over the last decade. And i think it's it it might be that a company like amazon which is really just focused customer. I you know they have their strategy customer. I you know that's been a twenty five year run of that focus. They might actually start looking more legal and regulatory focused over the next decade. And i take a lot of rash or maybe justifiably so to say we have to do that. In order to keep serving our customer. That is the way we best serve our customer. But i think that's really interesting thing but like not to go down that rabbit hole too much. Because i'm sure there's plenty of opportunities to do that. You're happy to comment on that. But this idea of assistance has been something that we've been talking about On voice for awhile. I know you've been talking about it. I think there's a sense that Doing this is too hard or that. The investment is really to significant that. If you're only only amazon or google can actually get away with this I don't think you agree with that. Yeah i think there are a lot of different ways to do this right. There are ways to do it Round up a lot of investment. Probably very hard as we've talked it out in the past like thank america did with erica and i have talked about the fact that we consider that to be successful. A lot went into that success rate but there are other companies that are doing it in very different ways. In still leveraging. I think solutions are kind of being patched together because today there are a lot of really interesting tool providers out there raza pico to fi- you could very well used pieces of these different assistance to at least start to test and understand when owned voice. Assistant would look like before. Making larger investment in rain has been kind of in the gamut of those types of experiences. So everything from you know. How do you do this from the ground up to starting to piece together. Some of those providers to It'll be solutions.

About a five minute drive West closer towards fancy Beverly Hills is another the Cardiff Tower drill site in the PICO Robertson neighborhood. This area became a Jewish enclave after World War two It said the tower was built to resemble a synagogue. Its exterior is still well kept painted yellow and white. There are now 40 active wells beneath it. And so I'm right here. At the entrance to this other window less tower. And there's a sign from the California health and Safety code that reads. Detectable amounts of chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm may be found in crude oil and other petroleum products and their vapors. If you really take the time, you'll even find a drill site hidden inside the Beverly Hills mall. You'll find four islands off the coast of Long Beach built to resemble a tropical world of fake waterfalls and palm trees that cover up more than 1000 oil wells. That project was courtesy of the same company that helped build Disneyland. But the reality is that not all the drill sites in Los Angeles or this aesthetically pleasing or guarded by four walls to redirect toxins away from residences.

"Marketing competition and that's where Pico comes in the week. We'll be tracking the engagement of each post made by competing school and sharing the results in real time in a digital leaderboard. This is a unique aspect of the event and why I particularly wanted Pico to come on the show, but before we get into that Focus wage, Pico has done a ton of work in the traditional Sports World. They've worked with the NBA the NFL Bundesliga and a lot more. So as you're looking into Esports anime expands into Esports, what other work as a company done in here and why were you interested in this partnership with level next in particular? These are all good questions. I think starting with exactly what Pico is doing could be very helpful to understand why Esports and so interesting for us. So people like you said is a data-driven marketing platform and the whole idea that we are helping sports teams to change the way they are thinking about digital engagement because the current problems are having that while the entire world is, you know, competing and investing a lot on getting engagement in sports the engagement off an engagement pretty much come naturally, you know Sports friends are engaged that that's what they do. They follow the team that have the team and what happens is that because there are so engaged teams have many different job. All those to support disengagement and they're investing a lot on actually spending Millions on making sure fans have wait. We're we're to engage the problem. Is that why they're very good at engagement and engagement is not the real problem. The real problem is that they don't really know who they are engaging with and that's because each of these digital channels create pretty much a silo of data the teams don't own the channel. They don't own the data that is being transitioned over there and things mostly have data about fans that are coming from tickets merchandising and newsletters subscriptions. So unless you actually bought something with the team if they've only a digital fan who maybe Pros to the website or like the post over Facebook or Instagram the team don't really know who you are and the gaps are huge. We're looking at the market that has some timezone ninety-eight percent gap between how many fans they actually have in the databases compared to how many people actually following them on the digital space. So, it's Pico. Like I said, we help them look differently the way that yep. Engaging with fans and make sure that they're high engagement. There are seeing on the digital space actually drive to data that then could be used in order to make sure we can reach back to fans with the younique offers and content based on their unique preferences..

"John bachelor, Eugene Roe. The author of the Fall of the Ottomans. The Great War in the Middle East. This the final conversation about your jeans book because we're discussing the Balfour Declaration as a piece of the canvas of the decisions made by the war committee at the clothes off the first war, 1917 1918 In order to weaken the Ottomans that's seen as a piece of the puzzle that will weaken the Germans. I understand It's very far fetched 100 years now, but I I follow the argument you make Eugene and I followed. I'm trying to think is the war committee thinks So if I understand correctly, the war committee sees the current ski government that's taken over momentarily because that's our has fallen has abdicated and Bolsheviks have not quite pushed their way into. Petersburg, which is becomes Leningrad and Moscow. But the Balfour declaration is understood to make appeals to the Jews, The Zionists To return to the Holy Land and also to give what what lobbying. That's the word we use today, lobbying in Washington and lobbying in in Lenin in Petersburg. Is that how they see it? And they believe the same will be true among influential Jews around the Wilson administration, the United States, So there was this thinking you might almost call it an anti Semitic thinking that there was this kind of global Jewish power that somehow Zionism was going to mobilize and could be used. To the benefit of the Allied war effort. But there is one of the relevant which is that I think the experience of the Sinai campaign of breaking through the lines and Gaza Beersheba. Had shown the British how important it was to hold on to Palestine in the interest of protecting the Suez Canal in their position in Egypt and Palestine. In the sights. PICO Agreement had been deemed an international territory that no one allied power would get it, but all of them would rule it together. I think the British wanted to revise that part of Sykes PICO to do so without annoying their French allies. How much better than to claim the moral high ground that they weren't doing this out of imperial self interest. To effect the historic restoration off the Jewish people to their biblical homeland is very witty to say that the war committee was without self interest. I like this because we now have a chance to talk about Sykes. PICO, we We bypassed it because we have so much history. Sykes Bego is a map drawn up by these two men. One is an adviser to kitchen of the others of the French foreign minister. It's a map that Eugene lays out very clearly as a way for the empires of Europe, which I am their ambitions are to win the first war, though it's very much in doubt in 19 sixties and 1917. To take that imperial thinking and apply it to the Ottoman Empire. The shorthand version of this is that they're cutting up the corpse, but the Ottomans they're still very alive when they drop Sykes PICO. The blue area will be French. The red area will be British and the brown area is Palestine. The in between part this many decades later, Eugene is Sykes PICO, seen as a As a dream as a vision as a talking point because today as you note at the close of your book, it's used his propaganda by the cutthroats of Isis. How is it? How is it seemed at the time. Yeah. Good point. John. I think the weight of you cite, Speak. Oh, then, and now was an exercise of imperial balance of power politics, you know? You see, the map of the Middle East looks very different from what Sykes in PICO had drawn up, and there was a lot of renegotiating the land that the different imperial powers would take in the Middle East. Every new ally that joined the war effort got drawn into the carve up when Italy or Greece declared war on the central powers. Then they, too, got their little bit of Ottoman territories. That kind of war prize. But really, it's society. A that 60 co. Represents the illegitimate imperial carve up of the Middle East of balance their own interests rather than to put the interests of the people who lived to those territories first. And give them a say in choosing their own future and choosing their own sovereign entities. Every piece of territory and Sykes PICO is now at war. Every piece it is spooky to report that. No, it's November of 1917. Russia collapses, the Bolshevik rising. It's December of 1917. The Russians are withdrawing from The Anatolian frontier. Lenin's surrenders chiefly the as You say The surrender of Lenin had a lot to do with the relieving the pressure on the Turks. The Germans take advantage of it, but the young Turks feel that they've had a miracle breast lift mosque. Of how are they going to use it? What was their best thinking in the winter spring of 1918 19 again? The young Turks who really divided and I think most of them believed that they were to take advantage of the End of the Russian threat, and this was just Unthinkable to the autumn is that the Russians would simply disappear is a threat on their frontiers and withdraw, saying We have no extra territorial ambitions. We don't want any Ottoman territory. It was beyond their wildest dreams. So many are young Turks thought and somebody like most if it came out Ataturk that you should use the opportunity to deploy all your troops to protect the territory. You still hold in Palestine because the British may have taken Jerusalem and December of 1917, but that's two left. North and Eastern Palestine and all of Syria is squarely in autumn in hands and one minor correction. The Ottomans still hold the town of Medina in the jazz. It's fed by the railway line from Damascus and has a garrison of 11,000 men in it, so there's a lot of territory still to be defended. And you could use those troops well, but in there One of the ruling triumvirate and rather rash Minister of war, saw his moment of glory and trying to pursue an old dream of hiss of taking Turkish influence into the Caucasus and beyond. He still hoped that he might be able to demonstrate to his German allies that this great vision off Islamic uprising Could threaten the British in India, and he goes galloping off of his troops. Through the caucuses towards Azerbaijan and a campaign to try and less conquer the territory for Ottoman rule that established allied governments in Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. And this becomes the kind of quixotic drain on autumn in resources just towards the end of the war, where they'd been given a last chance through the fall of Russia to try and defend what was sort of Ottoman, Turkish and Arab Heartlands. He failed in that moment. I think in that sense by diverting resources they needed. He left the Empire Open to that final British thrust that would lead to the fall of the Ottoman Empire. And that is Lloyd George's advantage. Lord George. However, he has ambitions. He orders al Alan beads now commanding a Jerusalem to advance now into Transjordan. Leave the coast and go inland. At the same time he's negotiating with Hossein Sharif is a sheriff, a saying about who would be the king of the Arabs. Saying Doesn't like Lloyd George, does he? They don't they? They're they're negotiation goes poorly Is Lord Lord George being bloody minded here after making promises to Hussein's, Is he betraying? Well, I think there's uh I mean, I did some level. Of course, there was a betrayal going on here. But as I tried to say before the British never really wanted to encourage Arab nationalism of any sort. They didn't want to see the creation of an independent Arab kingdom. They didn't believe the Arabs are capable of self rule in that sense. And so for the British. They were trying to forestall anything that would lead to Arab independence because it wasn't their interests A they already knew that they'd agreed with their European partners how to carve up these territories and then the rule of the streets and that was really quite reduced so You know, I think For the British there. Their objectives were to try and Win the war and then after the peace to secure their territorial interest in the Middle East Allenby.

Pico in Lockdown

"Start by checking in with friend of the show author Pico to hear how he's faring during this pandemic summer Pico was raised in England in southern California by parents who were both philosophers and religious scholars we caught up with him in Santa Barbara Pico welcome back travel with Rick Steves Real Delight. It's always. Highlight, to talk to you. Thank you know people used your life between California and Japan tell us how you are dealing with this crisis. Well I spent the first half of the pandemic in Japan and I'm almost embarrassed to say that things are quite beautiful and the sense that things look very much the same as normal as you know from your many trips, the people wear masks much of the time in. Japan anyway literally and figuratively to protect others. If you were in a bus in Japan in November, usually, there'll be forty percents of the people wearing masks. So that part was not different and as you also know, Japan has managed to avoid the west of the virus. So even in the middle of April I was playing Ping Pong every day with my neighbors eight year old men were diving across the hard floor of the wooden Jim to hit back at forehands and really looking around everything seems same as usual except, of course, no foreign tourists. And I think the other thing about Japan which is one reason I moved. There is as you know, they're very STOIC uncomplaining and resilient, and so they've been dealing with challenges for fourteen hundred years there, and they don't see these kind of crises is shocked sore in the south. So aberrations they think of them almost as the way life always is they used to earthquakes some Salamis forest five. So in that way to it was quite a complex to be. and. Then I flew back in the middle of the pandemic to Santa Barbara where I am now because my mother who's now eighty nine just come out of the hospital and I knew I had to have and California did look very different from usual but in certain ways, people seem thoughtful and focused and reflective kind and. In some ways. Conversations I had with people here on the telephone if I in is in the supermarket with Michio the they might be otherwise I'm lucky again in both places because I'm in. The small town of not as affected as big cities and. Towns of privileged. So everybody was most concerned about those without a roof over the heads with family nearby jobs I had a pretty lucky I. Think you know, Pico, you mentioned in Japan people are to wearing masks both literally and figuratively and I cringed at that because I don't want to have a world where we wear literal masks I would want even less to have where we all have figurative masks and maybe we'll have more literal masks in our future. But what you're saying is when you got back to California, people might have been wearing masks but they were being a little more honest and open with each other's is that right? Yes. That is right. I'm I think in Japan the FIGURATIVE MOSQUES Seen as a form of social duty I think you know as you know, the Japanese define themselves by the the whole unit, the neighborhood or the country or the company, and they feel everybody around me is suffering, and so my job is to make people feel better. I don't want to inflict my own suffering on people who already going through a lot. I want to offer them what I can in the way of help Williamson. And support, and so actually I like that quality about Japan essentially positive and and also they're not rattled by things sometimes very small things will come along and and other places. I'll see people get very shocked and caught up in the fight of the moment and Japan has much more level suffix, which makes it in some ways a calm place you're right that they're not good at facing up to some of the DACA places. The, dogs spots in history. But as a win a sort of social lubricant, I think it makes for at least a cheerful atmosphere and it's sort of related to being considered socially. Exactly, it's. It's. It's. It's a matter of thinking about the other person before yourself and then recalling if remember in the Nami two, thousand eleven, eighteen, thousand, five, hundred people died and when people watch the footage on TV they were surprised the Japanese was so quiet uncomplaining and I think that's because even though one person that loves to people right here at the house, she knew that everybody around her had losses also and so she didn't want to compound that.

There is love optimism One might related might be related to. People being at home more using Alexa more I. think Catholic early say more about this. The other is that more and more people now see the value of vices not being just like saving time for example, but then also being germ-free technology that you're like there was this one them all by. Pico. Voice thing queered they have like the voice enabled elevator of, for example, all of these different applications these. Are. Pretty exciting I mean we're still in the early days regarding this, but I definitely emcee that more and more companies are thinking about voice experiences the go beyond building. Games Alexa. For example, on that go beyond marketing Alexa skills, and think about k. what's what could the health benefits of filling filling voice and Tad's Free Interactions Look like A great point eight is thinking about that when. When you look at voice, you mentioned this idea is works experiment for a lot of businesses and it might have been coming out of their innovation budget and you see some sort of really big disruption that's hitting revenues profits, and therefore discretionary spending. We would see we would normally expect these type of special projects beside line but in fact, what we're seeing is a lot of there being accelerated. This. Very interesting to see an I thought some of that is definitely kind of a self fulfilling prophecy of the industry that you're like, Oh yeah. Alexa has been slowing down a bit at least it felt like this in the scale store Kayla look into other ways that we can build exciting experiences but it also feels like that more and more companies that haven't been in the industry in the voice in the treaty are also looking for like how to deploy was experiences now. Whether it be touch free or it just be for a really convenient way to interact. Catherine Yon just mentioned you. You're sort of background and focus on the consumer. It will bring you in here a when you think about the voice view the voice brew lands and Cova Nineteen. How do you come out on that? Yes. So there are a couple of things I. Love. I love to talk about I. You know there have been lots of reports that have indicated that there's been an uptick in voice assistant usage and that's great for the industry but I think what's even more interesting is that the data showing that people are trying more things more things they haven't done before with their voice assistance and I am definitely seeing this. You know through the Lens of voice brew the engagement with forcetruth emails has been up significantly through You know since the start of the pandemic and March and also the volume of subscriber emails that I get has exploded in recent months. So people are at home they're trying things they're running into issues and they want help solving them or they're just excited that something new work. Then they wanna tell me and they get in touch. So it's you know it's kind of anecdotal but you know I'm I'm definitely seeing more people trying more new things with their voice assistance and I think that's that's really exciting. That's really interesting to me that that you know it it doesn't surprise me that. Because people are all they're using their devices more, they're looking for more ways to do it. They've discovered voice brewed so that it's just another signal that your subscriber base has gone up Frankly because of you know it coincides with all these other things that are happening simultaneously. Yeah no that that's been great and it's also just with the existing Subscriber Base I. can see that you know people again people are at home. You know they're reading their reading their emails. They're just they're they're engaging more and I, think. Part, what's you know from my perspective also really great about this. Is that I am hopeful that this will persist beyond Kobe. So once you kind of open the can of worms of trying a lots of new things with Alexa or with Google assistant that people will now be open to continuing to do these things but trying more new things So. You know all good

How AI is Being Applied to the Stock Market

"Hello and welcome to the Today podcast I'm your House Kathleen Mulch. I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. So today we're going to spend our. podcast talking about our use case series where we look at the adoption, I in various different industries and today, we're GonNa take a look at the stock market and the training on. Amazing. Other things like the stock market commodities and futures bonds and Blah, Blah Blah. So we talk about stark record. We're talking about the trading floor in general, but basically the stock market and it is the dream. It is the long dream of anybody WHO's in the financial trading industry to find the magical algorithm magical model that can predict the future of the market because if you can do that you basically when everything in life. Right because. If I can tell you the price of Amazon or apple stock or oil, or whatever tomorrow, I can lock in my buy low sell high sell high by. Then you went and you know what? There are very smart PhD mathematicians out there right now, who are working on machine learning models to predict the markets, right? So we should talk about. I think ever since there's been a market, there's been someone trying to figure it out in one way or another. Just. Technology helps but still hasn't cracked it. So like Ron said, we wanted to spend some time today talking about a and how it's impacting the overall stock market trading floor and that whole area recently adoption of AI in financial trading has seen an uptick and more people are starting to look into this wealth managers are using ai to help serve their clients better. Freighters are using AI and also Also, augmented intelligence tools to gain insights and flight market advantages. You know anything that they can get. They really try any slight gain, is worth it to them, and also many people are starting to see some real value from using ai just in general. So we wanted to spend some time to dig deeper into this and talk about how ai is being applied in various ways. So part of getting. Getting an advantage in the stock market, of course, was called Informational advantage. If you have to know something before other people know things. Then you have an advantage just goes all the way back to you. Even Barron Rothschild in London stock markets, how he used the supposedly passenger pigeons ticket information from the battlefields. You know that was like supposedly like one of those big innovations and it kind of carries. Carries through to the high frequency trading. We're like you can engage in micro. Senate? Like not even Microsoft, by Pico Senate seconds of advantage over someone else because you have the man, you could place that trade just before the other people place the trade. Then you have an advantage, right? So having information advantage is a real thing, but you know nobody really knows the future especially machines. So really. So what you can use, you could try to just build better models. You could try to figure out, could try to fill the basically figure out a better cause and effect like when you see something happening in one place, right? What does your model tell you about what will happen somewhere else or maybe something in the same market like when I see, let's see there's oil prices are going up does your Mama. Mama predict something with some high rate of predictability about what will happen in other market, and so this idea of modeling model changes for Stock Market for finance for risk levels, the is really able to really analyze things just a much higher level. It's basically just doing things that skill we talk about that with the idea of hyper personalization is one of the patterns just in general patterns and anomalies and predictive analytics. Systems can read all the news, they can look at all the social media. Posts, you know they could check every stock, it check derivatives on stock options that could check all those things. So companies that are really using a I are using it first and foremost to just be a massive intelligence gathering tool and synthesize all that information together, and basically try to use that to inform and influence their models and use those models to basically help do things at a much faster speed, and of course, is about speed right? The speed is incredibly valuable and so someone getting something just slightly faster getting that insight. Maybe you just haven't inside that nobody else has which is great in. You can act on that and hope nobody else notices, but a lot of time. But the truth of the matter is, is that you never alone there's too many people looking at too many things. So it's really about speed right and there are many many companies that are really building these ai tools to look at the complex patterns in the market and analyze those pens so that that's one big way is hoping right now.

Chef Iliana de la Vega discusses authentic Oaxacan cuisine

"Chatting with chef. Ileana de la Vega about authentic hocken. Cuisine Ileana welcome to milk street. Thank you very much for having me here. Let me just start by saying of Ben to Your Restaurant in Toronto in Austin a couple times in the last two years and it was the best Hawkin food of had including in. Walk US terrific so you lived in Mexico City remarried there. You move to to start Eldorado restaurant but but you had trouble being accepted in some way. So explain that to me. Yeah what happened? I mean as you mentioned I was born in Mexico City and eventually ninety four actually moved to a hacker. We opened the restaurant until ninety seven. And Yeah my mom is what was Oaxacan but because I was in born in Oaxaca was not supposed to be cooking blog on food. I mean I guess that things have changed you know hook us a little bit more open now than it was there but You know for them. I wasn't outsider. So you had the restaurant there and then in two thousand six you left so what happened between ninety seven and two thousand six in terms of your restaurant and the politics and everything in the region. Well we were very successful restaurant. Join despite of like many were huggins. Consider me that it was an tighter and then on two thousand six there was turmoil in Oaxaca social unrest and so we had you know the economy collapsed in. We had to close a restaurant. And then I bet charlie we moved to Texas Allston. Imprecise you and I spoke a while back about what is moulay and your definition of it was totally different than what I thought. So could you just break it down for me? I mean you said there were three basic components to moulay. Maybe you could just take us through the concept right. They are like three groups of ingredients to make malate so one will be vegetables and by vegetables. How you also mean chillers. Okay so tomatoes tomatoes onions and garlic and such and then we have spices. So let's say black pepper cumin Cinnamon sugar sold chocolate. And then the third one very important one for these are the figures could be bread or it could be muscle for making tortillas and also not like almonds so there are the three of you take a little bit of each in each one of those categories you will make a molly molly. Negro is very complex. But I I gather that some Malays actually are much simpler than that rhyming. Talk to us about a simple mobile. Yeah okay like let's say like me. For example I think is the simplest one. You'll take a you know. Fresh Materials Green Sheila's Serrano's Jalapenos. Or one of those onion garlic and put it in the blender and then you fried mixture and then you add some herbs fresh herbs so I do up Ohio Santa Parsley and episode. That's my traditional one. And then you have the thickener. Which is the muscle that you dilute. I in a little bit of water and you added so those are the basic ingredients and you can make that. Molay in twenty minutes rather than the. Mola negative that he takes three days. I want you to describe because I've had your Molin Agro and it was divine if you taste a really well made Molin agro. Ideally what should it be like? What is important when you make him? Only non one of those stents out not on one of those flavors. So you will they said. Oh it is a little cinnamon and then the next. We'll give you a little bit of cumin for example or the next bite will give you a little bit of chocolate so each You know spoonful that you take the molly will give you a different note Let's let's talk about some common things in Oaxaca. The Mole Yetay Which I had for breakfast WanNa talk about how that's made. And maybe the tradition of that dish. Well then we get something simple that you will find all over Mexico. Norling OAXACA somewhat yet is believe traditionally like by a piece of bread like a kind of a French bread and then put a little bit of a border in it then beans and then some cheese will melt and then you put it on there. They'll win or something to get kind of. Nice melting and cross the cheese. And then you make Salsa Makina which is like Salsa Pico they get your tomatoes onion Sheila Bair the Serrano or Jalapeno see land throw and a little bit of lime juice in they knew. Serve it with it on the site. It was a terrific practice they also a Santa which is Pork Lard. Is that often used as a primary layer for lots of tacos enchiladas? Is that something that's common ingredient there. Okay largest one thing like Hitler this when you have a big piece of pork and then you take out the fat than you cook. It is slowly. And then you're renders fat right so that is large and then ASEAN thought when you're making teacher on the skin and you're buying it in large then at the bottom you will some pieces and beats over. You know the fat told and that's why it's colored it has it has color to the. You're not open a Tortilla. Like freshly made handmade of course and then you put a little bit of a layer of that and then you eat it with your meal Let's talk about the Tortilla for second in Oaxaca. According to a tee I guess in northern Mexico it's a wheat Tortilla but the tortillas in Oaxaca almost could pass for a week Tortilla. They're very fine. They're very tender. They're nothing like would you get here? So is that because you use different kinds of corn is the process differ. Why are they so much better a little bit of favorite thing? I is the the taste that they still do. Heirloom Cornyn in Mexico. Roy is one so sometimes. You taste the TORTILLAS here in United States. Then they're like sweet so that is wrong. Sorry that is like super wrong so that was one of the things that when we moved to the states and I began to as a Dorothy. Yes here like no by no means. I will be able to serve this in their restaurant every neighbor so you know thank God. We found now corn from Mexico many times from Oaxaca directly and so we proceeded in house and then we grind it. What would you like to tell me about the way you cook that? I don't understand. Well I guess you think that I have problem whether you notice plane. The people You know one is Mexican. Food is not necessarily too spicy. I mean depends on the taste of the taste. Parts of the person but general is just about the flavors The other one is it. People that have had through the years coming to restaurant. Said like this is not Mexican food. I mean for years. We didn't have a flour tortillas in the restaurant in is like oh no but this is not a not as well. How can I explain you? You know that the corner two years is the basic you know and it is your of the also very delicate flavors so those things I think is the what I would like people to understand better about Mexican Food

At Least 50 Cars In Whittier Area Shot With BB Gun

"Yesterday there was another bonkers story that came out of Whittier where there was a criminal ring that vandalize some fifty cars all over the city where they were breaking windows breaking windshields causing as much damage as humanly possible without really much explanation joining us for more on this is K. A. B. C. reporter Kevin trip Kevin thank you so much for joining us yeah anytime John and police are now calling this a quote massive vandalism spree spread over three different areas were talking about we do here as well as la Habra and Pico Rivera which are all bordering each other they believe that these are all interconnected as you said about fifty vehicles just in the span of a few minutes of smashed out windows different types of projectiles like babies are pellets shot through these windows they don't have a suspect yet but this is a big case right now where the cars are robbed or were they just vandalized there is no indication right now that they were robbed however we're still collecting information so it could turn out that the worst thing stolen but right now we know that they were definitely shooting out windows of these cars sometimes the back window sometimes the side windows sometimes both with either a pellet gun or a BB gun we've even seen on some rang it camera video from people's front doors where you can see a car drive by and then you can hear the shot are going through the window and then you can even hear the car alarms sounding after the window shot out so it's not clear where these kids are you know teenagers are going out for a night of vandalism was a somebody else with some other type of motive it's also significant to note that during this osprey which they now think is probably connected in these three areas somebody was actually shot a person was shot with one of these BB or pellet guns that of course raises the stakes are not just talking about felony vandalism you're now talking about a potential assault case the targeting park cars or were they targeting cars that were in motion with people in them it sounds like most of the all of these were parked cars there's been some neighbors interviewed and one case a woman said I came out of my house went to go check on my car it turned out my car was fine but I looked at my neighbor's car and it was all shot up so it does seem like it may be kind of a random act were somebody or some people were driving in this car shooting out window after window after window and we up possibly just kind of a luck of the draw whether your car window got shot out in la Habra or Pico Rivera I'll wait here I saw some of those cars on the news this morning it looked like a piece of Swiss cheese I thought Biggie Smalls was set and one of them yeah you know I've shot my fair share of BB guns and pellet guns and this must have been a really powerful air rifle because typically you know that's not the type of weapon you would think would shatter a car window especially modern car windows which are designed to not shatter very easily so I don't know exactly what the ballistic characteristics of this gun was but I can imagine it was something very powerful because when you look at these windows you would first think okay what was in a three fifty seven a twelve gauge it looks like something a firearm would have taken out but apparently police saying that they believe it was some sort of palette or

"Area to hang it. In which the Seeker advances upon the Hyder and says it's me which uttered quickly and breathlessly enough becomes SMI so. It's Christmas Eve there's this big old rambling Ling in this house. But one tiny problem. There's an extra player who does not number among the guests. Oh yeah a sort of moral downing the EGGNOG and playing hide and seek can make you want to pull a scrooge. It is a very creepy tail and on a the scale on a nomad took a scale of one to ten. I give it a note. Mafraq and talk is ten as a really creepy tail so my personal favorite. Yeah this one. I just read a couple of weeks ago. This one is called a strange Christmas game in its by J H Riddle and it was written in eighteen sixty three so even spook story. Enthusiast tend not to know about a good amount of Victorian ghost fiction. But you know what Victorian goes fiction was actually written by a lot of women back there so maybe the majority of it was definitely written by Mrs j h Riddell who was one of the best go story writers hours of her time period and screen. She will definitely Hashtag head. BIC In charge when it comes to the ghost store right now in a strange strange Christmas game we have that idea of play again only now it is the ghosts who are playing their hands. At the sport a brother and sister inherited gloomy old estate in Bedfordshire family. History here is not a long one except for the fact that former owners of the estate Jeremy Molester went missing on Christmas Eve and was never found for forty one years until John and Claire. Stay at the dark castle on Christmas Eve. And do you like like to visit haunted chambers. Well this one is definitely going to give you a sample of that. IT IS A. It's a thirty minute read for an old fashioned Christmas Eve Tales. There's murder murderer there's ghosts there's true crimes. Yes so I highly recommend that you guys read this I read it. It's it's a good read. It did take me three minutes. It's and it's a great short story and that's so cool A.. J. Drill was you know. He wrote a majority of these Victorian Ghost Tales home. I M Anderson now on Daca scale of one to ten. This definitely reached ten. Yes this is a really good tale guys now we ahead into your interview with Maria Wa from the Andres Pico Adobe. Hey guys welcome to Hollywood. Paranormal unfortunately I don't have price Mitchell Williams here but we do have a really really awesome treat. We have Berea Walson our did I pronounce it right Western. Our lessen our western our and RIA is now one of my new friends and she is awesome and she is also the brainchild behind behind Hollywood exhumed on instagram and facebook. If you guys are not following Hollywood exhumed and you're definitely missing out. So Hollywood exhumed in short is as pretty much a walking history tour around Los Angeles California for that matter right. Yes most definitely so if you follow her. Through through Hollywood exhumed you'll get to see really awesome historical sites and locations in and around Los Angeles and she documents them and not only does she documented breath but she's also amedure historian so Maria you WanNa say tell everyone what you do well first of all. Hey Hey there you go yeah I am the vice president of the San Fernando Valley Historical Society and a historian. Yes The San Fernando Valley Historical Society are Caretakers of the Andres Pico Adobe in Mission Hills California and we are the second oldest home in Los Angeles. Yeah we are currently recording out of the home guys. We're inside the Adobe Museum and we're in one of my favorite rooms of course the costumer wardrobe room and we're surrounded by these amazing pieces of love garments. That date back as as all the way back to the nineteenth century. You're eight for sure we have Just behind you. There's is a really old trunk that's just filled with underwear from the eighteen. Eighty S You said really old trunk. And here's Craig Owens behind me so you're clicking in the background that is our friend. The one and only Craig Owens who is also the brainchild behind desire Los Angeles and the author of haunted by history volume. One so real quickly. What we're going to do is talk about the history of the Adobe Museum Liam in who what better person to tell us? The history of course is Maria. Because she's the Hudson that and it's it's a rich history and it dates back to the Mid Eighteen hundreds right so The adobe itself was built in eighteen thirty four by X. Mission Indians Or so we believe there's a little bit of a contra controversy about that right now But it was built With the mission that is is basically just across the street from US And it was used for for lack of better words a tool shed. We'll call it Later on it was given to Andres Pico who was General and brother to PO PICO. Who was the governor of California And he gave it to his son Romolo and his wife Catalina a wedding gift They lived here through We just got rice for my wedding. So that was it. My husband and I are starving artist and so at that time it was a lot smaller than what you're what you're getting now It was just basically the Sala the living room right and later later on The area that's now our library was built on. And some flight fireplaces were put in the garage so It looked a lot different than also it was Rancho style at that time obviously And Catalina I guess very fashion forward and Wanted to come in and redecorate. She should as she should have course first this was like large she said she was Reshad. VISIT HDTV show Adalina side and so she decorated it to what was on trend then which was Victorian and some wood floors were laid upon the existing floor. Right now And so that's kind of what we've recreated. Nothing is original to on the house. Everything that we have In the house right now uh-huh are donations. Yes you guys receive a ton of donations and it's beautiful because they're really like adds so much to the allure of the house kind of gives you an example of an a feel for how people decorated and how they lived and sure I would say like is not one specific decade. That it really isn't and that kind of upsets me a little bit. Because for a tape for a a little a little while we had a mid century modern coffee table And it was also so I really wanted to take it home for my for my own living room it just it just didn't it didn't feel right and so yeah we have control And a player piano and a a couple of things that you know. Everything's kind of a different time. It's you know it gives you That you know kind of vintage e feel the other thing that we have a lot of our religious artifacts that were I don't know if we salvaged. Or what exactly you would call it. But when when the pope made a visit to Los Angeles in the eighties The San Fernando mission kind of decided to redecorate create and got rid of all their religious artifacts slash charge keys that had little knicker chip and we just took them all. They had a little bit of a like like yard sale. And then we went to the mall and so you can see him throughout the adobe so it kind of sets that kind of mission e. feel to it it it certainly certainly does and I had no idea that this mission is this museum exists date it's quite sequestered here mission hills. Were tell me or tell everyone where it's is currently located It's Actually if you know the San Fernando Valley you would probably know the bear pit which was very very very famous barbecue restaurant. I haven't paid and we're right across from the bear pit but yeah we're We're just office to pull the data You know basically just across from the San Fernando mission but we're kind of tucked away so if you make that turn onto onto onto brand You'd better turn on that blinker quick. 'CAUSE YOU'RE GONNA turn right into our lives. Yes I had that I made that mistake a couple of days ago my way here for the first time but yeah it's pretty sequestered here Tucker away in this area but I guess let's go. Oh into the stories of what else this mission also carries so. There's a lot of talk that as a paranormal association in the history. Well I wouldn't be here otherwise. Of course let's get a spooky. Please take very spooky. I'm claiming that one of the reasons why it does have some paranormal association. Because Catalina is like why do they have a modern table in the middle of my Victorian living room for sure. I think she I think she'd be very irritated at the little papers that describe. She's like what are these index cards. But but anyhow Yeah well that's something for me that I love to kind of dig and see what could actually be a fact or fiction or lore also to separating between is a haunted is location or is it. I mean you have to think we have very very very old things in this house. So are they carrying crazy energy. Is it a combination of both both. Yes that I there are so many possibilities lester or a here. Let's begin with the legend. The one thing that I can tell you that that A lot of people seem.
