Epic Games trolling their way to a win

"We were recording our podcast last week with Dan Rabin. Oh, we're talking about the surface duo. We ended the show with what's happening with the TIKTOK acquisition. Microsoft is pursuing tiktok Canada Australia, and New Zealand operations than they pivoted and said, no, we want the whole thing but as that was happening. EPIC Games had been kind of Going through some subterfuge earlier in the day, they launched it direct payments in fortnight for android and Ios it was a server side changed. So there were no updates to speak of the sudden. You pay less money for V bucks inside the game if you didn't want to go through apple and Google's own. In purchase mechanism. And then apple said nope that's not allowed and kicked the four-night APP off of the APP store a few hours later Google did the same thing then a very well coordinated media. Roll out of a an amazing video parenting apple's nineteen eighty-four. Macintosh at the most famous ad ever. Epic did the same thing they kind of? Made a shot for shot recreation of it. Basically calling out apple for its own monopolistic practices and then launched lawsuit and did the same for Google few hours. Later when Google kicked fortnight off the play store now Gul's Lawsuit Jerry is a little epochs. Lawsuit Against Google is a little different. But it does claim that Google uses the play store to suppress competition in particular because it makes side loading super super scary, and it also prevents companies like LG and one plus which were called out in particular inside the lawsuit. From making side deals with companies like epic in order to prevent. Third. Party APP stores from. Behaving like I party stores. So you know in particular, we have situations where. There's the play store preinstalled on a Samsung Phone and also the galaxy store and APP updates can happen in the background silently but for a company like one plus trying to install or pre installed the epic game store those. Silent updates are not possible because Google thinks. That they are a security risk. That's one element of a very, very long, very detailed lawsuit. So walk us through what your thoughts are about this Google lawsuit in particular first office is. I don't know it's it's epic is. Really just trying to troll its way to a win. A lot of what it saying. Takes a little bit of the truth and then stretching it out, making it worse I. Mean They they claim it takes you know dozens of clicks to side load an APP when it really only takes one. A day talk about how APPs are unable to send updates outside but facebook does it on every phone that's not a pixel. It's it's just. Stretching the truth a bit. I don't like that because it takes away from the an actual real issue that. Is thirty percent too much. I mean I think thirty percent is a bit much. I have to out and say that that Google takes too much money from developers. And we're losing sight of that simple fact because. EPIC. Is being epic and spending millions of dollars to make videos and stuff. Right but it's also not nearly as big a company and this has been this really been the the the sticking point for some people right? It's like to massive companies are battling it out and users are stuck in the middle right they can't install four night. But when you when you look at the scale of epoch, which is A. Seventeen billion dollar company not a small organization at all Tim Sweeney? Is a very wealthy man. He can fund this by himself if you wanted to But compared to apple and Google epic is a relatively company by degrees right and slaying that up a lot. They are no doubt about that. I mean there's there's absolutely no question that epic is is taking advantage of of these of big Tex size but there is also the argument that this company epic is perfectly suited to try to tackle big tech from a law perspective from A. From judicial perspective, trying to force the courts to take up the the call that these companies are too big and engage in anticompetitive practices. I just don't like the way it's being done. epic was fine with the agreements with Google and apple that it had made. Until it got enough users were it. Could you know? Cause trouble. And that's the what. In my opinion that's what happened they knew okay. We'll do it and eventually will get millions and millions of users on mobile like we have on you know consoles and PC, and once we have all those users will you know have leveraged to fight apple and Google? And all those users are being, you know they're like pawns being used as a bargaining chip and I just don't like that at all.

Breakthrough Solutions for Anxiety, Depression and PTSD With Apollo Founder Dr. David Rabin

"This particular juncture in human history. We're in a very strange time because the most powerful evolutionary way that we express safety to one another is touching it hugs and now we're self isolate and so. How do we reconcile that? It comes out as your ability to what you were mentioning earlier. So I think I'll a big part of this is I think as you said four Sabbath. It's forcing us into a day of self reflection or three months of self reflection where this is an opportunity to be grateful for what we have and to figure out how to make. Sure this never happens again talk talk more about your research with psychedelics. And where you think this is all going so my research is ongoing presently I think going back to what we're talking about earlier with Eric handles emotional learning. I think Dr Rachel Yehuda who is an incredible researcher at Mount Sinai in the Bronx. Va took things a another step further from understanding just how Neuron Neuron structures and synapses change as we grow and learn and she actually started looking at markers on the DNA That are called epigenetics. So genetics. Dna means tends to mean in DNA when we talk about it means in the act's and Jeez that are literally the same in every single cell in our entire body except in our sperm cells for the most part however if all the DNA and all the genetic code in all of ourselves the same pretty much. How does a skin cell different for brain cell and the way the skins almost different from a brain cell is there little markings on the DNA that tell the skin? Hey Skin your skin don't make rain proteins and it tells the brain that hate your brain and your the specific part of the brain. Don't make skin proteins or any other proteins. Don't make sense for where you're located in your in the in the by albeit regulation right through epigenetics on the markers on the DNA. The answer was really passing. Rachel found that others have fat had echoed in the in the scientific sphere since then is that she found that a lot of hints that Trauma Causes Changes to stress in reward response genes a pass on overtime not only pass on overtime over the course of our lives but pass on over time generations in that ancestors of people or sorry ancestors of people who were in the Holocaust their children and great grand children and Grandchildren. As far as they went in the study they expressed similar the same. Epa genetic markings at correlated with. Ptsd as their parents who were traumatized and so then the next step was hey. Let's try this. Let's explore this a causal model in mice and they traumatize mice at very young age in a red those nights and they watch the genetic The expression marking patterns and they found that without a doubt there were significant changes to stress in reward response gene expression that occurred with that first trauma at a young age that were passed on for up to four generations a safe living before they were eventually or sorry at least four generations of safe living before they were eventually eliminated from the DNA so day ever raised these the the subsequent generations with the EPA genetic markers outside of their Genetic Pool in other words because you know we we always thought about g the one of the things about intergenerational transmission of trauma. It's something about the parent is emotionally transmitted somehow transmitted through the caretaking. They do any control like that. That's a great question I have to go back and look But I but but regardless. I think it is more realistic to not do that. Because that is not representative of what we experience in our lives. Typically in our in our lives when we're traumatized and we resolved their trauma. We do traumatize our children and so I think what's interesting in mice in mice you can. Actually you can look at all these different time points because mice don't have the same rights in our society that human humans do and you can section their brains and take samples. Dna over the course of you know all these different time points in their lives and see that you know when a mouse is born a young mouse born from traumatized parent That baby mouse before has been exposed to negative behavior from the parents still has the same or similar changes and so. I think what's most important about all? This is that trauma and a lot of the symptoms that we're experiencing as a result. Louis experiences result of trauma are not permanent. What this is showing us? Is that epigenetics. If these changes are in the EPA Genetic Code. That's a really good sign because epigenetics are modifiable by things that happen in our lives if trauma which can be defined in reductionist way as you know powerful negative intense meaningful experiences one or many and that EPA genetic changes that result in clinical expression of PTSD depression anxiety. And then we see people going through one. Two three extremely intense meaningful positive experiences with psychedelics or with amazing therapists and their symptoms are within with just three doses of medicine and a bunch of psychotherapy basically gone for years afterwards. That could only be the case if it was acting on the same part of the of the genome. And so because that's the only thing that lasts in our bodies for years and years and years passed onto roster so I think it works long right now. It's very exciting with maps and folks at Yale and in USC. And Dr Huda is. We're looking we're looking at is can psychedelic medicine. Using the proper way actually reverse the EPA genetic changes that result from trauma. And can we then use that? Study to explain how the sort of the interface between science and spirituality where where is where does healing her healing occurs by allowing ourselves to feel safe enough to heal and when we feel safe enough to heal. That's when the recovery nervous is on that's where the para sympathetic system gets resources diverted to ward it to facilitate. Hopefully what we will see as EPA genetic remodeling that restores recovery.

Building Strategic Partnerships with Shelley Worrell, Founder of caribBEING

"Tell us what is being and what is your job behind his project. Sir So we actually envisioned a an interesting so when we started we the first very first program that we put up with Bob. Hope for months and really it was about. It was an extension of all of my worth in and I wouldn't say my my work but also my travels right so my undergraduates is cultural studies and with the concentration on Rabin and then in Grad School. I and that's making up with Kirby I am. I always saw content right. Tv though distributed content as being a huge gap in the Caribbean space. Why are we not seeing ourselves? Elected in media Caribbean space. Do you mean like Caribbean however like looking at me Erica programming period right. So whether it's you know programming featuring people crimen stories premium people. I saw that as a huge gas. And and the other thing I had issues with for Sorta you know the way. Tourism is package in the region. So I started Grad school studying cultural heritage tourism and I ended up making a pivot to media studies but both programs are really about addressing these problems directly either through tourism cultural heritage tourism. Which again my life has come full circle and or media or a little bit about like some of the issues that you see in cultural tourism because when okay so I spend a lotta time in like crown heights and flatbush Andy's areas and you know having affinity for like I guess like Dancehall and musical from you know the islands like Calypso Soka. It may be but that's also just because of like influences that I've got as a young person growing up in New York but was Indians like for like people are not familiar with them like they kind of a lot of people on it like a paint them in one brush shirt so I kinda like how certain South Americans are. All the guys are all Mexicans Asians or deemed as you guys are all Chinese when people think like Zinnias. They're like oh you guys are all you guys all speak. Patois guys you must love so for those of us. That are not familiar. You know like. Can you kind of describe? Tell his like what are some issues that you see and you know like how tourism is packaged when it represents you know Caribbean and like just some of the misconceptions where like if you could kind of explained there actually differences between Trinidad Haiti Jamaica Right. Yeah Yeah I mean that's like a whole I mean we do a series on average version but at a couple things that I would mention one thing is when you think about Carnival right here on. Carnival has become wildly popular. Soka is trending around the world. And I talk about this. A lot with my friends In the region as well as here meaning in the region the Caribbean region and become overly. It's like sex tourism right so when you look at Soka you just think about women whining right and and of course but from the culture are not right. It's some it's sort of like this thing that you want to engage in right but there's so in but in a very overtly sexual manner right so you know so I think like the over sexualization of the female body has become like a very prevalent issue in in Carnival Culture. And that's you know throughout the region and and that's really not what carnival is about right. It's what's becoming right. And when you think about like you know carnival now you're thinking you're thinking beads. You're thinking you know that I can go line on somebody right or you know now. It's not only wining on people. I mean you're seeing men are touching women right like without their permission and you know we can be in the talk about this two years ago at the Brooklyn Museum as part of our residency. Because you know women got shot in During Juba because she refused to dance with someone and he just shot her I wa. I heard about that I lived on Rami like Juvie. Has A for people from from those areas. Juve has a juvenile. Tends to always have some issues like recently. I mean there was a lot of news around it right but I mean I think a lot of hype too right so and just misinformation and mischaracterizing the whole event with an associated with violence. So for those of us. That are not familiar with what you say. As is the event that were like the party. I guess it's not a party is the opening of the opening of the night before a day of the car that is correct and it typically starts at three four o'clock in the morning and that's how the tradition was brought here but again because there's so many people participating in Juve and they're and they're repackaging it as something else something that it's not right and not really understanding the roots in the origins of this cultural celebration. Then that's when things start to like to the sexual violence of that point right exactly and then of course it's nighttime so it's very easy to you know for people who are going to do bad things whether to or not come out because there are large people out on the situation right and and so you know. I think that's one of the things about curbing culture that is you know. Sort of like skewing in the wrong direction. It's it's you know the way we've been describing it. It's it's feels like sex tourism almost Like people go to Thailand and different. Tally like people actually really by prostitutes over daylight whereas in right whereas not there's a there isn't like a transaction per se contacts. You know because you feel like you're going to have a transact right right elise like you know the the intention is necessarily like okay like I appreciate what is simple symbolizes is more so like you see like pretty woman and loud outfits that are you scantily clad for lack of a better term and then I can do whatever I want right You know because of course they're dancing in a particular way which may be essential or sex scene look sexual so if feels like a ripe opportunity for some that you can actually engage in this elicit behavior so I mean that was one of the things You know I think that's one of the things that I've been thinking about for for a couple of years now And just observing I am I have to SAMA masquerader. I go to the Carribean a band. I I play mass and I I played. I've played played mass and Guadalupe lightly. Explain what that means for people because you know like when my home is used to some air like I was. I didn't understand what that meant. Cathala terms like right so mass is short for masquerade and during Carnival In most countries in in fact I in every country that I can think of their different groups even Brazil right there. Different groups which Organize around a particular theme right. So let's say we're playing canal street or Chinatown Right. All the costumes in that particular band will have a Chinatown FEM- right and and and actually perform or to participate in. That band is called playing mass right and so in my experience throughout the Caribbean Going to carnival because again. I'm a masquerader whether you know I'm in the French Caribbean or the English. Speaking Caribbean I have not played mass in the Dutch or the Spanish speaking Caribbean or even in North America Because I've played here in Brooklyn as well as in Miami You know I always play mass because I'm a person who cannot just spectate. I want to participate and I've been playing since I was a teenager but now I have been spectating for couple of years and partially because I don't like what I see it and you know and I think it's a little problematic Also getting a little older. I'm not I'm not young but I'm not old so I'm also like to have the energy for that so I want to hear that physical preparation that goes involved. As do I saw the body ribons? Well so I think that kind of dove into growing up in flatbush and And travelling to Caribbean during the summers and The washer ethnic heritages sure. I usually don't talk about it. I always say I'm the Caribbean or hair politician. But both my parents are from Trinidad. So and the unique thing about my parents that's really important to know is both. My parents loved the eldest. My father is one of thirteen. My mother is one of seven. They're both number one and they both were the first to come to America and largely responsible for bringing most of their relatives. They bought their own. They bought everyone. They filed for everyone So parents will mothers because only my grandmother. My grandfather came and aunts uncles and dozens and dozens and dozens of cousins. I come very very large family so my God. Think lease into The because when people like I said earlier when he would think like. You're from Caribbean from a Caribbean nation. Like people don't Associate Jamaica's such a big brand people just automatically. Lake Brand Jamaica is like a real thing right so people just assume like you're Jamaican if you're from the islands you're probably going to eat. Beef patties not even jerk chicken. I don't even think that many people know about jerk chicken Liz. You're from New York

Ashley Blaker: Goy Friendly

"Talk about some. I'm pretty heavy issues. Israel Iran Patriot of Jews. So our next guest is a pretty big leap for us. Ashley Blaker is Jewish standup comedian. He is the first Orthodox Fox Jewish comedian to be given his own BBC. Show Ashley Blaker. GOYA's guide to Judaism which returned to the air in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. Now he's in New York for his latest off off Broadway. Show Ashley Blaker Goi friendly which premieres at the Soho playhouse. On February third and runs through February twenty third. While his previous off-broadway production strictly unorthodox was tailored for Jewish audiences. This one he says is not just for the Jews. It tells the story of how Ashley's close friendship with Muslim. Comedian Imron on. UCS completely changed his life with antisemitic incidents on the rise around the globe and even here in New York actually hopes to make the audience laugh but also understand stand a little bit more about their Jewish neighbors Ashley. Welcome to our studio. Thank you for having me so I have to ask you right out of the gate. anti-semitism is not funny. So how how do you address that topic with humor. Well the reality is I think he's anything can be funny. So I'll let you come to Louis showing judge whether I make. It isn't about antisemitism. I should say that there is actually a section is a band. Semitism thought. I think the more interesting is the fact that that when antisemitism is on the rise there are two ways of dealing with. This is a way of kind of hunkering down. Just going. We're we're now gonNA stick to ourselves and and try and protect ourselves and put up the security barriers and let's have lots of armed guards on the on the door in social ones bags and all of that stuff all you can kind of outreach. As it were and try and engage with the outside world and that's what my shows about about the latter it's about reaching out to the outside world and in a way this makes wants a comedy show. You know hopefully nonstop funny. Sound sound incredibly dry but Hopefully demystify Judaism a little bit. That's certainly one of the aims. Okay well I would say you could do both right. Do the security see the undercover getting having no security either. All kind of you know very good at that accused but I actually my playbill. I wrote a Performance note and for Bates Him. But I said something about how you know very good dividing ourselves as a as an in one of the things into I enjoy doing you mentioned my show strictly and also those I I love bringing choose together because we figured it kind of separating ourselves in so many different ways you know on the whole joke about the Jewish man who lands on a desert island and he builds two synagogues one ones that he'll go to one that he wouldn't ever be seen dead and that's like what we're like but I do think that there is it is an important time to actually reach out a little bit and we can. I think sometimes certainly not in any way suggesting that we. We are in any way a foot four and symptom of course but I sometimes think that actually being too insular. Isn't that helpful. Listen so now you are from the UK so well the Labor Party. I have to ask you about the Labor Party. I'm afraid But it's often regarded as the political liberal party of choice by many Jews in Great Britain. And I'm curious how you dealt with the last election and whether or not you felt politically homeless as I kept had reading about the Jewish community. There didn't myself but I'm sure other people did and I think that yes certainly in the post for many Jews the Labor faulty will have. I've been there home by just as much as the Conservative Party would be for many Liberal Democrat. We have quite a different political system. Should know to to to the Americans as many but yes I mean. It was incredible. What happened over the last few years and how symtas I'm just rose and seem to not be dealt with toll within the Labor Party in? Yeah it was a terrible thing we still really really been dealt with properly gone away. Yeah I know there were. There were several vile things said many vile things said ed by Labour politicians but then also Jeremy Corbyn himself was talking about the lack of irony that many British Jews seem to have. I don't know if you recall that particular. Yes it was Avia. Yeah it was a video I think from a while ago. Actually but he had yes he had said something. And there's a lot of these kind of allusions I think is because they. They caught clever then. They don't outright. This isn't the foul right then marking the street saying killed the Jews. It's a very allusive. Quite clever thing of of Hinson these particular weight alluding that Jews and Israel inflating the to and to you know the whole talking about antisemitism and anti Zionism also that that things that really came along with the Labor Party and I saw something videos of people saying no no we. We're not intimately to we like the right to choose. I think there's that thing of the good news and the bad news and I think that's a really good. Jews has ones March against Israel and kind of write letters to the Guardian saying that we support Sanctioned bedia smell that kind of thing uh-huh and then the ninety five percent of the badges. I mean that's clearly terrible things so it's been a really dark period and I didn't know it'll be interesting to see in the the next four five years. How things change? Have you tried to address it with humor. There over showed. I just did a toll in opened in in May with my friend Imran you mentioned draymond so imminent. He did a tour together called profit sharing actually breaking news in profit sharing seek clever title. And it's not address head on there are other people addressing this head on and the the truth is the way to look on twitter five minutes especially around the time the election to see that kind of Echo Chamber people. Don't WanNa hear they. You know you you tweet. Something about Labor Jeremy Corbyn and immediately comes back. This prepared list of twenty times. Jeremy Corbyn has both a motion ocean in parliament. That's been helpful to community Blah Blah Blah say. No one listens to each other anymore. People just spout the same thing. So I'm not sure engaging in that kind of way addressing head on is that helpful she because people just don't want to listen right. I'm sure it's the same here with trump and I'm sure there are people who are vehemently say one one thing you don't want to listen to the side. Yes that is. That is a problem that area. So I think that's something we've seen a lot particular around brexit and all these issues as we've had in the UK and the F. But so my show anyway. Mike show look comedy show. That's the the the main PARV. So I'll tell you briefly I mean essence shows. It's about yeah. Tell us about the show but then I also want to hear more about Enron and your friendship so the show about my friend she was Enron said. So that's the kind of I think in film in terms they call that the macguffin. He's kind of you know that you heard that term. I'm not familiar with that. So it's like using the original star wars. I think C. Three Po an onto d two of the macguffin that they're the ones like sent off into onto the desert and enter tattooing. They've got the messages item. Thank you the whole plot revolves from. Then there's no actually about them but it starts from them so in a way money's the macguffin hit because is a true story we're good friends we went untold together. And he's very interested custody my life he didn't know much about Judaism me belly of June. We spent many hours together in the call. He was always drawing because he he's Muslim. Couldn't in claiming been drinking and he's always asked me questions and I kind of wanted to teach him about Judaism. But where do you start. We've got six hundred thirteen commandments. It's too long to the call I didn't want to spend money on guests so I thought well I teach him about the Ten Commandments. And we started looking at the Ten Commandments. And I unrealized. They're not that practical you know he doesn't have an ox next all so there's no need to worry about not coveting it and I so I could. Maybe set myself challenge of coming up with my own ten commandments. That I could be a bit more practical. But they could actually explain what it's like to be an Orthodox Jew in two thousand twenty and in a way. It was my friendship with him. That made me reconsider my Judaism. Because she had I've been living as an Orthodox Jew for the best part of twenty years but it's only when an outside comes along install challenging us at you start having to think about it you start thinking about your love. So that's what the shows about and it's about me going through these ten commandments. My New Ten Commandments. antiquing this to him okay. So do you mind sharing a few of the talk commanded if you're the one of them is thou shalt develop obsessive compulsive disorder okay. She's an integral Paulsville so shoot as But we cover branch of Judy. Check that box right exactly. So we cover a lot of these areas we cover kosher food and living in a Jewish area. We talk about the curse of praying public and this covers a lot of ground really comes a lot of ground in the show and then And then the story I keep finished. The story has a continuation because of how Im- reacted and then what we went off did something together which I don't want to spoil because that's the narrative But it's a pretty funny chairman. I it really is. I'm super proud of it. So you say I did. This show could street Lennox. It was aimed at a Jewish audience. All Jews knock. He's also dogs. Reform Perform Conservative unaffiliated. But Still Jews and I think it's a really. I really wanted to do something. Everyone could cutting joy That would be in a language WIGGs. Everyone can understand but the is serious does not scrimp on the jokes atone. It's the funniest show of ever done this by miles miles because I've already but still called the serious stuff when we do discuss antisemitism and there are some real takeaways well foam it excellent zone. The show's name. Is Ashley. Blaker friendly it's at the Soho playhouse here in New York City from February third to twenty-third. Thank you for joining us. Thank

"rabin" Discussed on People of the Pod

"Hello and welcome to people of the pot brought to you by. AJC The Times of Israel each week we take you beyond the headlines and help you understand what they all mean for Israel and the Jewish people aren't Cogan and I'm on your bre share cashman in the nineteen ninety five assassination of prime minister. Yitzhak Rabin was a cataclysmic event in Israeli history it was the first nail in the coffin of the peace movement that Rabin himself had helped birth Israeli security forces had always. He's assumed that threats to the prime minister would come from Israel's foreign enemies like Iran or Syria or from Palestinians. The the idea that a Jewish person would murder. The prime minister was inconceivable. Almost until the moment that Yigal Amir pulled the trigger. I'm your was then a twenty five year old law student at Bar Ilan University and he decided to throw his promising life away in order to kill a prime minister stor who he feared was ruining Israel by contemplating giving land to Palestinians now twenty five years later Israeli filmmaker. Tehran Silberman has created a moving thrilling dramatic recreation of those awful days leading up to the assassination with his film. Incitement incitement won the twenty nineteen. Oh Fear Prize for best picture. Israel's equivalent of the Academy Awards and is now playing in limited release here in the United States. Your own joins us now to talk about the movie and share his perspective on the State of politics and extremism in Israel. You're on thank you so much for joining us my pleasure. Thank you say now before we dive in. I just want to tell you when I found out that this interview is a possibility. I decided decided I would go and see the show and I went with my best friend last week. Alex and I went. We saw the movie. It was beautiful it was haunting it was powerful and then my sister Mr. My older sister found out that I had gone and she was furious at me. I said I don't understand why you would go. You wouldn't tell me okay fine. She has a point I get it and she says don't worry about it. I'll go with a friend and so she goes to the movie on Saturday night and I get this tax from her movies about to start but look who's sitting like to rose rose up and it's a picture of President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton preparing to enjoy the film. And then I found out that Bill Clinton spoke afterwards words and so she doesn't get to be mad anymore. That's like you will your own like I said you've made a beautiful haunting powerful powerful film and I hope our listeners will seek it out in their home cities. We're not going to spoil anything about the movie because it hues very very closely to real world events but I wanted to dive deep into some of the choices that you made when you were creating and I want to start with the name of the movie which in English is incitement and in Hebrew Hebrew is Yamile Neuro team which refers to its base. And that's basically the Hebrew way of saying high holidays like Russia on Yom Kippur but literally it means those awful days and I was wondering what went into those two names of the movie. Okay so I. I met title that I gave the movie. Career Group humanoid him the reason being because yeah. It's a double play. A on those dates were really really terrible. Days for spectrums of political ideas and all sectors of the Israeli society. Such as you know you have the bombs on one hand the explosions and you have of course this nation nations which is a terrible traumatic events. So these were horrible days at the same time as you said rightfully so that it's the holidays elites which means these days. And they all four days of atonement days of soul-searching days of asking for forgiveness. And and I think the movie is also so much about that making you know for the society and all about their involved in all over the world metairie worth SOC- nation deal society under in extreme tension that the violence erupts. It's about soul-searching would do wrong. We have stopped it and does does. Of course we're involved in actual actions that led to the events. So that's why you had the other meaning. That was so important in English. Rush there is no double meaning to these words translation so anti choose and you want and I thought about you know what would be the right one and I wanted something again will encompass an important issue because I find this nation to ignite something very important discourse important conversation within society especially especially these days and all over the world and I felt incitement captured that essence of you know at the end of the day that for the film rights to show how the you know working of that and how hopefully in the future will be better citizens and now the movie follows Eagle Amir Era Rabin's assassin in the year or so leading up to the murder. Although it doesn't actually reveal the name of the character of the murder I think e Gol Amir's name is I said probably ten or twenty minutes into the film but it shows his romantic challenges. It shows the Anti Mizraki racism. That he he faced as a Yemenite Israeli. It shows his tough ideological mother in some respects. It seems to indicate that he was incited not only by politicians and by rabbis but also by his circumstances and one thing that I was wondering is whether the movie is too sympathetic toward him. Well it's got the door because at the end of the day saination and them and somebody who kills a prime minister that was pushing for peace peace between the two people that were in the whole styling Stephen Hall style relationships and therefore somebody who kills somebody and fight for peace. I think has to be a you know not somebody at the end of the day that you root for or for him at or however hey I I did want to tell a true story on his story about that person. I mean not about him. The stories about robbings summation but through the eyes of the fifth. And why. Don't you describe guessing. On a psychological level psychological thriller genre that they see. This movie belongs to then you have to tell all sides and these aside we then I discovered during the research so I want to tell the story in more rounded way so that we can look you you know into the eyes of their be as we say and get as much insight out of the story that you know that truthfulness will will bring about. So that's why I went with all the ways the first to say. Oh I'm not going to be a girlfriend that they were you know going through a journey tour getting married. You know because if I'm not telling that I'm not showing one asking. Do you know how this relationship ended. And I'M NOT GONNA say for not to sport it that there is a wave rape and and that has to do his temperament after and behavior also right. It affects him complete. I have to be both on otherwise wants to be here. So much of the drama in the movie comes from these small moments between Amir and his girlfriend between Amir and his mother or especially between when his father. How much of those quiet dialogues with his personal dialogues? Were you able to reconstruct based on interviews and research as opposed to you know. What did you kind? You have to simply imagine where leads the nation because the events themselves are oil based on research and words and auster researching for several years reading everything that he had to say that the setting Corp investigation in the national inquiry. I gotTA handles awake. Speaks speaks and logic and demeanor and I use debt extended that into these particular conversation. I was present but all these answers all the dot. Hello he's actually part of language and large so the answer is the combination rabbi's in many ways are some of the bad guys of the film and Rabbinic texts these kind of fundamental rabbinic texts. That underpins so much of Judaism today are shown as like these Arcane Arcane manuscripts that give a mere kind of pseudo moral backing my monetize the Rambam he turns to him in order to justify killing killing robbing. And it's true that extremists often find support in fundamentalist interpretations of Rabbinic tax of religious tax. Not only in Judaism and I and Islam and Christianity. I'm wondering what you think about that characterization and I'm also wondering if you think that the political left in Israel could benefit politically Kalihi from a greater fluency in those tax integrator embrace of a Jewish religion slanted more in their favor whether they could do that without compromising on those values and whether that might bolster the moral ground that they stand on okay so you you asked two questions and each one of them as you know many many answers but there are complex questions. But I'll try to address whatever it can within the time to have so first about read by you. Know I'd be definitely are already rabbis. Of course in Israel that would be a complete misleading. I'm showing rabbi. That are Meinie From the Herliman. You know The West Bank rabbis rabbis of settlements of leading settlements. And and I think that that proclaim the true story here and I'm not saying that everybody because that would be wrong of me but too many you know too many to inference nation. That was too many and yes. They use the scripture and there was a conversation about this book because Scripture Blight to robbing the nation and I think it was a huge mistake. Terrible mistake between cited for this nation. So I'm standing guided and yeah most showing Footage you know and you see what people say and it's only two single version but I wouldn't say the generalized that about all the religious population death not or read by that would be uncertain to say and wrong. So that's on that level but I do you know still still be a very very critical of many many rabbis that incited now and for your second question about whether the left should know more jails to know that many many figures the leading figures in the left on the left side of very well versed with religious scripture and everything thing religious. So it's not that they're not I I'll give you one example. She's norger like with with the booby. Shulamit Aloni name. She needs to be a prominent person and left founder of the Merits Party Foreign Minister of Education exactly and she thinks there and she says already in Austin boggles to massacre curse she goes on TV in the movie and see that the guy when she says that whoever listen carefully to the cold was poking on route shave our to the a settlement radio channel and wherever listen to you know we're rabbi said you did it was coming so she knew and she says she she referred to it because she knew that she knew and also if you stick store knowledge of religious scripture matters La La more thanks art is huge and deep. So it's not just a mess you know doesn't know they know going to help you in any way because I don't think that's viewed the argument. The argument liberal say that religious. Some tastic but that's individuals business and it should not affect the state uh-huh and also that these were is democratic Jewish state yes but democratic before everything else. That's what libro would say to you so I don't think there's an issue with the religion issue between left and religion. You're on let me just close with one final question. Incitements or habitat in. Hebrew has become a kind of buzzword in Israel today anytime any politician criticizes and other. It's hustle tides incitement. Whether they're coming from the left or the right you know you see you see the prime minister you see his opponents. Everyone is accusing everyone of inciting everyone else. What is this movie half to say about incitement extremism and the state of politics in Israel today? Well I think that the scores in many many cases you need sweat today on this level of politicians and also just leader etc crossed crossed a line where followers of the person that says that stuff. Could you know use particular words and inflict extreme violent one other person or group and I think that's where we are he's and you've seen time and again especially near elections near you know important events that happened politically. So Yeah I think we cross the line I think you see that also in the United States with Donald Trump and at the end of the day it's terrible and should be stopped but that doesn't you mean we can criticize in protest at all being critically super important for good citizenship and for society to progress and also You know again proteins. Issue's important tool of society as long as you do it without inciting to violence. That's the limit and I think that people cross the line urine. Thank you for making making this beautiful movie. Congratulations on the awards and on its run here in America and good luck on all your future endeavors. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. I appreciate this conversation patient..

Behind the Assassination of Yitzhak Rabin

"The nineteen ninety five assassination of prime minister. Yitzhak Rabin was a cataclysmic event in Israeli history it was the first nail in the coffin of the peace movement that Rabin himself had helped birth Israeli security forces had always. He's assumed that threats to the prime minister would come from Israel's foreign enemies like Iran or Syria or from Palestinians. The the idea that a Jewish person would murder. The prime minister was inconceivable. Almost until the moment that Yigal Amir pulled the trigger. I'm your was then a twenty five year old law student at Bar Ilan University and he decided to throw his promising life away in order to kill a prime minister stor who he feared was ruining Israel by contemplating giving land to Palestinians now twenty five years later Israeli filmmaker. Tehran Silberman has created a moving thrilling dramatic recreation of those awful days leading up to the assassination with his film. Incitement incitement won the twenty nineteen. Oh Fear Prize for best picture. Israel's equivalent of the Academy Awards and is now playing in limited release here in the United States. Your own joins us now to talk about the movie and share his perspective on the State of politics and extremism in Israel. You're on thank you so much for joining us my pleasure. Thank you say now before we dive in. I just want to tell you when I found out that this interview is a possibility. I decided decided I would go and see the show and I went with my best friend last week. Alex and I went. We saw the movie. It was beautiful it was haunting it was powerful and then my sister Mr. My older sister found out that I had gone and she was furious at me. I said I don't understand why you would go. You wouldn't tell me okay fine. She has a point I get it and she says don't worry about it. I'll go with a friend and so she goes to the movie on Saturday night and I get this tax from her movies about to start but look who's sitting like to rose rose up and it's a picture of President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton preparing to enjoy the film. And then I found out that Bill Clinton spoke afterwards words and so she doesn't get to be mad anymore. That's like you will your own like I said you've made a beautiful haunting powerful powerful film and I hope our listeners will seek it out in their home cities. We're not going to spoil anything about the movie because it hues very very closely to real world events but I wanted to dive deep into some of the choices that you made when you were creating and I want to start with the name of the movie which in English is incitement and in Hebrew Hebrew is Yamile Neuro team which refers to its base.

Magic Mushrooms: Mycocycle's Joanne Rodriguez

"After my honeymoon hiatus twenty twenty is going to be a huge year for innovation within the realm of sustainability. And it just made sense to to ring in the New Year with Joanne. Rodriguez founder of micro cycle. And I'll let her explain exactly what they're doing. This company is so insanely cool. And I know we're all about to learn a lot so thinking which Rabin you this morning. Oh Amy thanks for having me and I'm honored to be kicking off the year with you. So look I I tell you about micro cycle. We are using mushrooms to process. Toxins out of waste so we could divert them from landfill and that is like I mean that's at a high level and we'll break it down but before we get into all the micro cycle stuff. I mean to use mushrooms to break down toxic. Waste like you had had to had a hell of a career before that to come up with this idea so walk me through your professional crimeline a little bit. How did you get to run a company? That's using mushrooms is to clean up building. Waste what sparked your passion or sustainability goodness. I mean I think I've always had it. I've been in construction products and materials as for thirty years and for sixteen of those. I worked for a manufacturer of commercial roofing and waterproofing products and lead sustainability efforts for them but I was always involved in environmental efforts even prior to that in the idea that you know this going back to the three Rs Nimby the you know not in my backyard and reduce reuse recycle was ever present. That went back to college days so fast forward and I had the the opportunity to participate allow high level CA meanings green booze and resilient cities summits and really got a keen understanding. Being a what it meant to try to zero waste and we found with our products. We couldn't do that so fast. Forward to a few years ago I left the company. I just felt I may do more. I can have a greater impact in my life. You know how did I want to spend the rest of my life in my professional career and it took me in this direction a Wanting to find a way to tackle the industry's waste problem. The roofing and waterproofing the building construction material issue so in October twenty eighteen. I started Michael Cycle. My research led me to understanding that that fungi mushrooms are powerful are full healers of our planet and dist- took me down this road of how could we commercialize us as a technology to get it out of out of the forced I in into the economy. How could we apply this to solve a huge issue? I think everybody has some obviously familiarity with mushrooms whether it's the kind that's in your resort or the kind that like my roommate used to bring to a concert but you know what a lot of people may not know is like really the role that mushrooms play in our ecosystem. A lot of people think they're gross. A lot of people think that they belong on pizza. And I don't think that people really knows you know the mission of the mushroom. So what exactly exactly does micro cycle do in. How do you guys use the mushrooms to do it? So we have targeted toxins like like a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon. Say That three times fast. I will break you down. Ph which are universally recognized. As being carcinogen I and and really bad for the environment right for the water for the soil for the air satellites which are another stream and then heavy metals you talking arsenic zinc lead and harnessing the power than of mushrooms of fungi. Their powerful healers of our planet the resilient they've always done that they're really nature's decompose irs and so using bio mimicry. If you will mimicking their actions and putting it into control technology we apply that to waste streams to process the toxins out so we can make them nontoxic and then reuse those materials serials in the manufacturer of new products. We don't manufacture anything but we provide the service of controlling the detoxification of these materials. So they could be reused because right now they're all going to landfill and I know you guys know there's only eighteen years of landfill space left in. We need to do something we need to disrupt this industry me and we decided that mushrooms are are Trojan. Horse as how we'RE GONNA DO WE'RE GONNA change the thinking and move into a circular economy model title and really try to not just kick the can down the road but try to create a new value stream from the byproducts. How long does the detects process take typically exactly two to four weeks as we start to scale our BETA? WE'VE GOT OUR OUR LAB. Mvp We know it works in the lab. We validate a bat so for scaling. The Beta. That'll give us a great idea. To know how much inoculate it will take to work on the materials and how long mass amount of materials take to break down but but we don't believe that it would be any longer than four weeks and it could be as quickly as two weeks so company comes to you or you know like a roofing company or construction site in there talking to you and you go out and I do like an audit. Do you see what materials feels. They're using how do you know what exactly you guys are going to be able to do for the companies for sure you know we're GonNa go out and take a look at what they have and run a a little bit of environmental quality testing on the materials. Were able to then establish the protocol if you will for processing the materials us and so never trying to reinvent the wheel and it might be because of thirty years of business experience. I know if we if we don't create a process that's easy easy to apply. People won't use it so we want to deliver an engineered ecosystem that can be housed inside right so it we can do it. Coast to coast year round. We want to emulate the process of what happens in nature. So we're GONNA take that and deliver it within the engineered ecosystem and processed the toxins. Apply it and it. It's basically a train the trainer so the people that use our process will help them will guide them. We'll test materials materials on the front end will test materials invalidated on the back end and then they're pretty much off to the races in licensing the technology and applying it on wholesale on site. What kind of like? What species of mushroom are you using? Does that play a role like is there are different species at work. Some that don't work. How do you kind of get all of the resources that you need to be able to kind of? Close the loop on this solution sure. They're they're the white rot mushrooms. It's just a whole host of species if you will. We've done a lot of testing taking it from you. Know Sixteen down six strains down to three that we see to be most effective. But we've got a lot of variance in there in what we apply. Howie apply it how we use it without giving too much of the secret to a secret sauce away? But I mean you can read and see what's been effective on P. A. H. and phthalates Alex and this is open source information in our process. We've applied different techniques and different methodologies to to be able to protect protect the Ip but to be able to apply it consistently as a deliverable. So yeah it. There's an entire strain of fungi that are known to you. Use digestive enzymes to break down larger multi ring hydrocarbon chains and to hyper accumulate the heavy metals on the fruiting body. So so I do want to point out. That mushrooms are pretty fruiting bodies that we see the foods that we eat. Fungi is the entire organism. So just to make that distinction before you know you get an email. Say she doesn't know what she's talking about. It's easier just to reference mushrooms because that's what you see right. My Celia are the root structure that are delivering the network of enzyme breakdown. The chemicals so the my Celia and the mushrooms are part of the entire organism. That is the fungi

Voice Beyond Weather and Music with the Co-Founders of VoxxUp

"Now I know both of you are all about encouraging the voice tech world to think beyond whether music why do you think. The voice channel is underutilized in spite of the exploding adoption and Sunday. Start with you. I think the basic reason here is this. Particular Channel is still clearing that you glazed brands to brands ousted. Lot really last. This particular channel to engage with the customers veto to their customers in a meaningful manner which again brings gloves to the question. As to why are they not using the journal would effectively which we believe in this basically comes from interaction what action with a number of prospects and planes that have been working with right. I think it boils down to three things. One is. People are obeyed off off the exploding adoption of ways and smart speakers and You know the numbers are published regularly. But this didn't understand as to what is the use case that they can today the loss lack of education especially when the decision because as to how they can meaningfully engaged with the second Christian that the always face redoubt prospects and customers Hobie blue that skill or election exists somehow been only I believe that if they have say still have to market but some of that doesn't do for the voice skills our actions that they have still not able what do we aligned with the fact that that would also require a marketing make glove air in and there is an action awful brand with that that you can get into things and last but not least is the vision of Ottawa Everyone says okay. If you do this what is the auto identikit. And because of the spill Waverley as merely. Don't have a lot of the Matrix two pools that okay. This is what okay your customer kicks. Rabin Please Bay explicit all your amd market your brand of interest would increase planes and so on and so I think education and the understanding about marketing. His skills in action is also part of creating these things and the absence of metrics on three things instead. I believe that brands are not really placing the battalion. The Nicholas you know one more part to be added to that if you really look at that Voices relatively new. Oh and boys get be heavily utilized once you know part of our day to day life credit union. Now if you really look at that There is a slight I changing day. Track to scrape. That happens with the venue started jumping into the computer and the mobile revolution. Everything ready you know it all recurred. Some 'em I'm on the behavioral change to adopt that New China. I think over time everybody want offer all that our customers would be more comfortable to ask. Coast into this Dubai's these days. We know that we can get a lot of answers from Alexa Google home but you know how do you make it or activity that is adoption. It takes some time and but over the time you get better with that and more comfortable with that. That is a time we will have a lot of utility use cases can be easily deployed. You Oh you walk into your home and say you know what my next utility bills to pay or you ask your You know smart do is when is my how many more days for my vacation and when is my mortgage I believe do right. You know all these and be really comfortably asked it. Takes some behavioral changes for me matter of time to exploit and it is happening slowly and the the product British on. Yeah I think all the points both of you made are very true. I think that we're seeing that quite often. So what are some real use cases that brands can explore floor. That maybe they haven't thought of and can you share some of the interesting use cases you're dealing with large clients around the world. I think we have been grateful to look on pretty forward looking use cases when somebody nights claims across the blue out example Bank in Singapore and this is pretty large bank one hundred ninety billion dollars in assets under management stock use case we want to build a basic prisons on Weiss Sunderland. They prefer better weekly. You would be surprised to know even though Alexa Command sixty five percent of the market in the US in exactly clearly diverse in Southeast Asia in Southeast Asia in metrics dating attorney wasn't at the market is a group to Google the order to create a basic results me see basic prisons. It's almost like a of ABC's like information on the way center. So for example can warm and get all the information about the bankable Kabila Offerings that leadership their contact details and so on and so forth disbanding That's this doctor. And now they're talking about much. Water use is talking about the fact and they haven't glue uses the relationship. Managers can use screwing home to get a quick update. It'll be morning only media marketing the ruler so that they're really radi calls from the clients and is one of the next thing is Abo- They execute is able to get phonics.

Martini celebrates the festive season with a limited-edition Negroni chocolate collection created by Paul A. Young

"The beloved Italian Coktail Negroni is one hundred years old this year and the Shuki pull a young has been asked by Martini to concoct brand new chocolate to mark the occasion. Well Uncles Ben. Ryland sat down with Paula. littler Elliot to talk about the creative and practical processes of marrying chocolate with such such a famous drink. Plus they enjoyed a little bit of tasting along the way I have the great privilege of being approached by fantastic brands And a half to love the brand and all I have to love the product that the brand of created and for me it has to be natural. Ashby pure and ask interesting. And I've known the Martini brand for for decades. I remember adverts in the nineteen eighties with a particular on roller skates. trae Martini and the any time any place. Any were to have a Martini so so it was. It was always a happy memory for me. So when they approach and said we've got these new reserve special and brought on Rubino for Moose my East pricked up because I'm not a beer drinker. Call volume alcohol drinker. Let one night champagne and spirits. But I like Negroni old-fashioned says bitter sweet flavors because you can have them over ice on their own stop blending them and for me. Obviously I have to blend into the chocolate. So the challenge for me was taking the two commutes on brought her which is a a number color and the Rabin which is this ruby color from youth and taste them dilute pair them with chocolate. Let's try and find a combination that celebrates negroni because the centenary celebration of Negroni without the chocolate distorting the flavors and characters in the botanical in the two Moose but also the vermouth are very complex. And they've got that distinct bitter sweetness to they can easily distort the chocolate as well so it was actually an opportunity for me to work with them on getting that balance. Absolutely right Let's take quite a long time. We always think about the delicacies Kasese that can go with a glass of wine for example. What it it's fairly common knowledge that certain foods should go with a glass of wine? Don't sit down to a lovely gloss of red wine and then and and then tuck into a box of chips not good idea that we often don't think about that same sort of methodology when it comes to pairing something something we chocolate. How do you know what goes well with chocolate? It's a really good question in two parts to it. When I when I first started in chocolate a quite few years I would be guilty? If you've ever analyzing and I think it it's the way some people take chocolate which is if you're doing it professionally or academically you do have to have a process of pinpointing and finding all of us delicate compounds flavors and tastes to the point where you're deciding whether this chocolate is fine. Quality with beans have been fermented well of picked well or and so on and so you really digging in Bolt for me when it comes down to it. I have to take it back to base level when I smell it smell texture to like the taste from beginning middle and end and Roy after the after taste does it work with ingredients and now you get people who will say what wine and chocolate hard to pair. I find it very easy to pair. That's because I've tasted a lot of chocolate and a lot of wine and I can think about those flavors starting out and you taste piece of chocolate. How would you know which one to pick their hundreds if not thousands of them on the shelf to boy Oy? It's really difficult and all I say is by and tastes and eat what you like. Try It if you think it doesn't work. You're probably right because you own your tongue on your taste spots. And if it pairs well great. An I have always with all my tastings and events set to people if you prefer eating or milk white or dark chocolate with a cup of tea fantastic few think it works for you. It probably does but when it comes down to do you like if you do great no matter what anybody else says because you a half to want to eat again and again and again I'm almost runner of the cadbury cream egg at with the woman dipping hurt chips into a cream egg. Yeah well salty and sweet is massive business. The chocolate industry tree lady is not as crazy as she looked. She has no But I I do have a box of beautiful chocolates in front of me and you just pulled me a gloss of the move which was very kind of you for this time of day. A little SIP exactly Tell me tell me first. What vermouth measuring? This has gone brought us. This is the amber colored very light fresh smell wise. I've got fruit and it has to me sympathy botanical. Medicinal that's not meant to be a negative Tiv- term. I remember as a child having buttercup Syrup as a medicine and Dundee Line serapis kind of things those botanical can pass over very successfully into a Moose yes and drinks and this has that element of bitter sweet to it which if you think about bittersweet flavor dark chocolate is bittersweet already got a really good foundation and having having having a taste It's light on the tongue but the aftertaste is really really long It's beautiful sweet as well. But not over not overpowering only switch cleverly made it very sweet not overly sweet at the beginning and then this kind of botanical bitter dryness comes in the end and the chocolate made with it is the blue and gold marbled finish which represents the best colors on the buttocks. It's a beautiful bottle. Ferry Italian design obviously and sticking with Martini brand absolutely. I think if you are familiar with the Martini a line of Vermouth e you probably would be impressed by this particular RESERVA SPATULA pull. Educate me on how I should be eating the chocolates with the truth. We've had a drink of Mussa. Still got the flavor. There have a bite of one of the chocolates list. It's the blue and gold when it has a very soft center of white chocolate. We've got some Bombay Sapphire Gin. We've the VERMOUTH in there. Got Some Madagascans chocolate. which is thought delicate fruity chocolate? And very little else the predominant ingredient in that is the vermouth because I wanted that flavor to to last on the tongue. And it's it's a gorgeous balance. The dark chocolate is just bitter sweet enough like the vermouth. Once you've had the first bite and it's melted and swallowed. I have a bit more. Vermouth just passed me. A A glass of Rabin now I suppose that means that well to be polite I would have to try some of this. You would have to try that one as well this array of full of flavor for me I get kind of a smell of time leaves and herb Leary is very very very smooth. A little a bit Rich in feeling flavor and that's represented in the chocolate as well. We've got that lovely Madagascar chocolate again. But they could nash the filling inside. I just heavier more full needs a bit more impact. Bit more strength to it. So it doesn't get lost in the Renault so now that we've had some of the redeem we should be tasting some of the chocolate or I'd have made the chocolates a half dome a very smooth surface and a dark chocolate can inside Very very different indeed this one. Yeah very dock inside and a much more pungent hit it take. It took a long time to find the right chocolates to work with the to the most because Kosta so complex for example. If you choose orange which I love chocolate and orange you instantly got. I honestly know which chocolate to put with it to get that nostalgic fail. I love chocolate orange. What this it was? Try again try again try again. It's absolutely fantastic. The opportunity to have something that is quite unusual all to work with both familiar. It's funny how I haven't had either the Vermouth to start with but the familiarity and some of the botanical in. I don't know where that's from. I'm from my many years past of tasting and eating but there is something in them and all my team who tried to. There's something in recognized but I don't know what it is. I think a lot of people might say I've I've never had vermouth on its own. I've had a Martini Shaken oster Martini or I've had it as a mix of had it in an aground. Have I had it with chocolate would would I tried it if it wasn't in the chocolate maybe not so my job and my responsibility is just to inspire people to try something different. Because that's what I've had the opportunity. It's due to create the chocolates. I think you've done very well. Thank you so much. That was really

"Original. Original Johnson is low KOMO CLEM BY OFEK AVONEX FEATURING ZILLOW G and now it's time for our country segment. This is a part of the show which each of us describe something that might have surprised or amused as the lighter enchanted endorse older maybe even fluke this as we win that our way through our world over the last while Ohad. What is your country so on my way home from the university yesterday on dreaded Red Line twenty-five I decided to get off a few stops early in walk Stretch my feet get some fresh air. And and the such accept that as I walked contemplative Lee Down King King George Street my plans for a meditative stroll were foiled as they usually are in Tel Aviv. By Food I had heard rumors about Brooklyn Pizza on Dizengoff Street. It but being lazy Snob I am. I never took a twenty minute. Bus Ride North from my neighborhood in order to taste the newly famed slice. I have known for Awhile that a second branch was recently recently opened nearby but kind of repressed it as I had the feeling that once I tried their pizza. I'd probably be tempted to come way too often for my own good I was right eight. I mean come on give a guy a break I I was hungry. I was having a bad day and everybody knows it. Wednesday is is practically already the weekend so so I- succumbed to my lowly early cravings and order two slices of pizza and a small beer. It's the weekend I tell you what I received was nothing short of a miracle. I got two big big ass larger than your head must fold in the middle bubbling cheese hot greasy New York slices. I'm telling you it was as if these two triangles of pure joy had fallen through a hole in the space time continuum transcending years in miles from the neighborhood pizza parlor of my childhood in Actual Brooklyn New York Bedford Avenue represent into my lap in tel-aviv. I- munched and sipped and moaned and groaned with joy sitting alone. Just me and the two guys manning the oven and the register. We're probably giving me dirty looks. I don't know my eyes were closed when I finished I sat there for a moment. Resurfacing from my ecstasy see and notice that I was sitting in a really beautiful space. It was all block color as it was red. Green yellow and blue NYC MTA font on the sign in the front bare concrete floors and and on the wall and incredible graffiti mural the most beautiful detail of which was a large portrait of Jean Michel. Basquiat the Brooklyn born born artists in grey and black next to one of his stylized little crowns in the word King in in large red letters. So when I when I got up to leave. I asked the guy at the register for the graffiti artists. It's name it's Edgar Rafael. Look him up. And then as an afterthought I blurted why Basquiat well he's from Brooklyn. He said like Dr Pizza. Yeah I answered so am I wonderful. My that's my pizza place on these guys. It's my pizza place now as well. I ran into to your dad there just the other week. Yeah he runs there well. That's a big run. Yeah Alison. What's your other country? Anyone running then go eat pizza. It's a he was wondering okay. So here's something that's great about the country but not so good about me. The volunteer your spirit and sense of community here is really amazing. There's a feeling of cohesiveness and mutual responsibility that drives Israeli society and crosses sectorial lines. I I think you know religious not religious Arab Jewish etc thousands upon thousands of nonprofit organizations exist here to help people in need feed. Clothe them give them a helping hand and it's truly impressive. Though some say that you know it's filling holes that the government should Should take responsibility for so. Here's the part. That's not so good about me because I've been in my time here. A working mother who's strong suit is not time organization. I have really not been as good a volunteer. I would be in my fantasies in my ideal world L. D. model selflessness to my kids volunteer efforts. I don't know I would help it soup. Kitchens I would be battered women's shelter whatever but really besides things that aren't really essentially giving to others like helping my kid's schools etc supporting them. I don't really have any volunteer activities and unlike like no. I don't really attend very many protest demonstrations so I suppose I could fake it as a journalist and say well whenever I write about a worthy cause it's a way of helping it sort of let's face it. Did I get paid to do it for a living so it's not really a volunteer effort. I tried to compensate for my lack of service to the community formerly by being as good a person as possible and taking any opportunity city that falls my way to help my fellow man. I really push myself to do something when I can do something so unfortunately I had that opportunity this week. A really sweet and lovely woman who is not a close friend but who used to be my neighbor. A single mother with two school aged kids who struggles financially was diagnosed with cervical cancer and can only undergo her treatments at a hospital bullets about thirty to forty five minute drive from our town depending on traffic which is often very bad digression. Since the holidays there's been terrible traffic across the country. I don't know what's up anyway. This woman is originally from the south of the country so her entire family is far away except for one sister who really isn't to local lives in rehovot so she doesn't really have anyone to back her up and and she's struggling. Her body is wracked by these treatments. She can't drive public transportation's not an option and her condition. So friends and family set up a network of friends. All women put together on whatsapp called informally the Female Fighters Brigade for Alana and a spreadsheet was made of her four months of treatments. So it's been three and a half months so far. There's there's been a volunteer to take her to and from whatever. It is chemo radiation blood tests for every single day. She needs it. It's the silver lining. That sometimes feels like the bane of our existence instance in Israel. What's up groups? There's a what's up group for everything there's even one in many neighborhoods called the Cla die which people cook for people who recently had babies so I offered to take her twice on this. What's up group for one reason or another? It didn't happen the time change. Someone else wanted to take her whatever. Finally this week there was a last minute need for blood tests. Then I jumped in picked her up. She was so weak so thin it was so sad an awful but one of the things really carrying her through this process. Are these people you know none of them particularly really close friends who were rallying around her and helping her and let me tell you. There's nothing like going to the cancelling of hospital to get some perspective on life after spending the day with her there. I realized I have no problems At all I sat in a room full of brave warriors. Some of them older than I. Some of them younger children fighting for their lives. Heading in and out of Chemo and radiation treatments. Once again I was reminded minded that even with its flaws. How lucky to be in a country where healthcare is a right not a privilege? My friend has a lot of financial woes. This is a difficult time for her. But one thing she doesn't have to worry About is covering her healthcare costs so I did my small part over to the hospital. She had her blood test waited for results in the Sunny Garden. Full of cancer patients. I I looked around and appreciated. How precious life is? I'm praying for Alana. Hopefully the odds are with her early stage. Cervical cancer has a very high rate of successful treatment. Israel was among the ten OECD countries with the highest rate of survival for cervical cancer patients who are diagnosed early and hopefully it's a form of cancer. Our kids will be unfamiliar failure with thanks to the Gardasil vaccine. My daughter got hers in Public School. So that's going to drastically reduce cervical cancer in the country and hopefully in the world. I'm praying in pulling for Alana. I did what I could. I hope to do more. If I can but hope even harder she will be healthy soon and won't need that help which blessedly seems to be available to her. Never thought I'd I'd say it but God bless what's up groups who we sure speedy recovery so I was running circuits in independent park at sunrise as I do when the light is soft and the sound of the sea is gentle and at the southern end near. What's left of the Abid Nabi Cemetery? There were two ultra-orthodox women. Their hair covered by turbans saying their morning. Prayers shocker e facing the Mediterranean. When I circled back around to the northern end of the park just at the start of the clifftop pathway? A man yelled out to me from bench facing the sea and I jogged up to him and he said you have any chocolate. It and I said what was in any case obvious that I was running so sorry. No I didn't have any chocolate. And then I took off again and kept running along the clifftop path uphill towards that famous sculpture of the seagull. With a broken wing that commemorates those two pilots are owned of each sprint. Sak and Moti so snicker were killed in the war of independence when their plane gene was shot down by an Egypt's worship and it was glorious but I was troubled and I was troubled by the guy with the chocolate. I thought what an odd thing to ask him when he's running because no one runs with chocolate it would melt and then I thought why would anyone asks a runner for chocolate and then I thought no one would unless they were really desperate for chocolate so desperate they weren't thinking straight and then I thought well one reason why someone would be desperate for chocolate end. Not thinking straight is if they have like diabetes and their sugar's crashing or whatever diabetics I bet X.. Sugar does and then immediately as soon as I had that thought I knew that it was true. I knew this guy had the diabetes and he's having an attack and I felt bad for just saying sorry Ari and running on and I thought I don't have chocolate obviously but I live two blocks from here and I can run and get some at home and if you don't have any at home I can go to the am pm if he he needs it. So by now I was up at the -Sego and just circled back. I turned around and ran down the hill until I got to the man on the bench but as I was approaching him I realized that I didn't know exactly what to say. Should I say. Do you have diabetes. Is there a problem with your blood. Sugar those sounded like prying questions to me then just as as I reached him I had an idea and I said say why. Did you ask me if I had chocolate. Even though I'm running and people don't run with chocolate because it melts and he look me up and down and he said man because I am so high I smoke so much has sheesh and you know how good chocolate is after so much Sheesh and I pointed towards boulevard and I said there's an am pm over there just two blocks away and he said thanks brother and added as if for the first time. I am so high and I said I know brother and it was not yet six. Am I went back to my loop. When I got to the south of the Hilton the two women were there? There's chuckling still deep in prayer and that brings us the end of our show thank you. He's amazed Amir. Our kindhearted phlegmatic engineer and women of mystery and to me.

"Does told me that they recall that is Sumi by AFFEC- dunnock and now it's time for third discussion which we are calling the letter. And here's why on November number eight thousand nine hundred eighty seven and eleven year old fifth grader named Rafael Mints. Her nickname was la. La wrote a letter in her class at the school. She went went to Poland all her class wrote letters apparently and they seem to have been gathered together and send pen pal like to a school in Haifa. What Lala wrote in unlovely round clear Hebrew letters was this first of the month of Kiesler fifty six nine thousand eight dear friends? The teacher read us your letters. We receive the letters back in the summer but we did not have time to reply to you because of Alladays in our school we have a collection box. We collect money for the Jewish National Fund. We received from the John. F Bureau office in Warsaw. A letter that our school is one of the first places among schools collecting for the NF on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration. Our school had a celebration abrasion. We all gathered together and sang songs. One group presented a small play. Surely you have heard about the events in Poland. How bad people beat the Jews and there is no one to come to our aid? All of the Jews in Poland. Want to come to the land of Israel Shalom to you Rafael Mints. Just under two years after that in September nineteen thirty nine. The Nazis conquered Poland. Two years later the Jews of the worst ski were moved to a ghetto and six months after that they were sent the Auschwitz where recommends was murdered not long ago a journalist businessman NGO founder and collector of local memorabilia named duty zilbershlag bought from Haifa junk dealer atrocity of old letters. Dating back to the first days of the northern settlement of Matola searching through the letters he noticed several in round careful kids Hebrew and skimming them he saw that they all mentioned the NF so put them in a file March AF after a while. He offered these letters along with many others to a Jerusalem auction house named dynasty for public sale. The dynasty letter curator identified the letters for what they were letters from Polish kids who four years after writing them perished in Auschwitz seeking to pump up the the price of the documents that the auction he prepared a press release and sent scanned copies of a bunch of the letters to local newspapers which eagerly reported on them and reprinted them. Here's where the story took an unexpected turn door at S- mon the great nephew of Racquel means read about the letters in the paper and recognize immediately. That was his great Great Aunt Joan's family which is immense. His family acted fast and soon was on television demanding that the auction house. Cancel the auction. A niece of men's named advice via Luton explained on facebook that quote. We are trying to stop the auction of the letter so that it doesn't fall into private hands. We want to preserve and respect the memory of my aunt. The place of this letter is in an archive like Yada Sham. Or the Beta Museum and quote. The Auction House responded that it is quote fully sympathetic with the concerns expressed by the family. And we'll do you everything in its power to convey the letters to the men's family but they continue. They have no control over the owner of the letters who remain anonymous at this point refusing to be stymied. The a family took their case to a Tel Aviv District Court which issued an injunction against the sale and in the course of the Lightning Litigation Zilbershlag identity was revealed and it was revealed that he served on the board of directors of the Holocaust. Yeah so it was here that things got really sticky. The directors of yod Vashem announced that that trading and Holocaust memorabilia profit is unseemly and they asked Zilbershlag to resign Zilbershlag in a combative interview said that he had withdrawn the letter from auction but would would not hand it over to the family. He said that is a family wanted. They could have bought the letter for a couple of hundred bucks and done with it. What they think is best? He said that the letter is not really Holocaust the ANA as it predates the Holocaust he said that the family had unwittingly inflated the value of the letter many many times over making it unlikely that they would ever see it. He said that private property thirty is private property. He said also that he'd be happy to give them a high quality scan of the letter. Meanwhile the papers. The comments sections and social media went berserk. Zirk and there is a good deal of how should I put this delicately a good deal of criticism that attributed overstocks unwillingness to surrender the letter to his ultra orthodoxy. Kaik read comment one nine thousand nine on the wine that article describing out of Sam's defenestration of silver. That was a comment in its entirety psychopath. Red Comment one eleven. Kaik read comment one. Oh three zilbershlag is the inspiration for skylark. Read comment one too. I entirely understand why they hated them. In that I- ASPER ASPER said commenter number eighty three and goes on and on but is this really fair. Duty Zilbershlag lose his spot on the board of yod Vashem and be reviled in this way is the family of raccoons. Correct that by some sort of natural right vase somehow own the letter and what if there was no family. Then would it be okay to sell pre Alexey on in public auction. What do you think my two cents? If there was no family you could sell it no problem if there is a family that is clearly related into the person who wrote the letter. If you're going to say that you know artwork that belonged to a Jewish family but before the Holocaust belongs to that Jewish family and not to the person whose hands hands landed in after the Holocaust. And you have to say that the letter of a family member Written belongs to the family. I don't understand why he would be insistent on I. I don't understand why he wouldn't let the family. Have the letter. Have Control over it as we said originally it wasn't Worth so much money and You know just first of all obviously don't endorsed the slurs against him in the in the comments sections of of the Internet but I don't understand why he would lose his reputation on you know something something where there's a there's a clear moral high ground without a huge financial loss. And why not let the freak and family have the freaking letter so they can donate it to Yada Sham which he sits on the Board Dove Anyway. I listened to an interview with only green. WHO's Su political activists in all sewn secondhand bookstore in Tel Aviv? And he's also sells. Yeah exactly and he said something. That was very interesting to me. He said to duty Zilbershlag like every other memorabilia. Merchant in Israel is very very afraid of creating a precedent. Because that's what makes it because their families that pop up almost like it happens almost every time that you have one of these big pieces of memorabilia or documents where a family says. Okay listen this is not yours. This belongs to us to the family. You need to give this back and I mean but we truly have a problem here. Many of items of historic value were found by collectors and merchants zilbershlag. I mean who do this stuff for a living. This is their job and they find these things in all kinds of places sometimes literally saving them from the trash and then a family or a national institution role in and ask them to give these things away for free. I mean th this system can't work this way. The state and its official institutions can just leave this industry private and unregulated and swooping when somebody finds something of of worth and ask them to give it for free. There is a really interesting law that pertains here in Israel to documents of historical value to the country and that law stipulates that if somebody puts up for sale document that is judged to be of historic value for the country. Country for auction is auctioned and then once the price is determined. The state has the right to buy at that price. which is I think in? I agree with what you're you're dealing with. I also felt listening to the interview with Zilbershlag that one of the reasons why he did not respond is that he felt as though the family family from the beginning from the beginning in a way that he thought was condescending and unfair that they immediately intimated that here was somebody who is trying to make a profit off the blood of Jews. They didn't know who he was at the time it wasn't personal. At that time it wasn't Antiochian Orthodox at that time but I think that he was genuinely insulted partly As somebody who does this for a profession and also partly is somebody who loves these documents to have it be seen as as though he is somehow just scully ashoke and Lee profiting off of the deaths of other people I think was a big insult to him and he did not want to give them a firing back instead of just letting this thing escalate. Why couldn't the family in this guy sit down again? You know if what the family wants us to go into a historical archive and this guy. Sits on the board of a historical archives. One thinks that you know in a quiet behind closed doors meeting instead of a public. You know shit show The thing could be resolved sober slug says that they had one with it when when they went to court. The judge said I want. I'm stopping the sale. So you guys can negotiate. That was that that's the point. That's a quote that I read and Ashok said that he sat down with the family to try and negotiate and they weren't about to hear anything they didn't seem to be a matter of principle. That's why they went straight to facebook and TV. They didn't even call up the the auction house. Yeah well I don't agree with that. I don't agree with taking public before you try to resolve it understood but I mean these issues are so oh fraud that immediately we go to this place of like Jewish. Are you on this. Are you on our side or on the side of the Nazis and I understand how that happens because they really are these. These things really are fraught but it doesn't make it possible to reach like a decent solution these kind of things hoyle. Okay listen to this. Yeah Verizon this really dont neck.

"rabin" Discussed on The Promised Podcast

"Domingo new the game boy. That's wrong. Izzo Seem Tequila gone by OPEC Atlantic. And now it's time for our second discussion so hot. It's it's shocking to hear a Labor leader saying sell the company to venture capitalists baby and yet here we are shocking. But is there anything wrong with this. So let's start from the beginning beginning. Sixty six years ago in nineteen fifty three director. General of the Ministry of Defence Shimon Peres created the Israel Aerospace Industries or I by appointing a derring-do American engineer named Al Schwimmer as the company's CEO. Schwimmer was a thirty one year. Old Lockheed engineer when Israel's War of independence broke out out and he used his connections to Smuggle War World War Two surplus planes to Israel for the war effort a bit of covert arms dealing that got him arrested and convicted in America after the the war ended in two thousand and one Bill Clinton pardoned then eighty four year. Old Schwimmer who live for another decade. After that it I the I produce planes the Sukey and the nausea Russia and the field in the nineteen sixties it started producing missiles like the Gabriel then patrol boats drones rockets ground defense systems. Something called military air systems and space ace hardware like satellites and such over the past three score in six years. The I. has grown big and profitable with more than fifteen thousand employees and a revenue of about about three point. Seven billion dollars a year. Three quarters of that coming from abroad and a quarter from the idea. If these real aerospace industries are fully owned by the Israeli government government But not for long last December it was announced that in two thousand nineteen the government would hold an IPO initial public offering to sell twenty five percent of its shares is in the IRA I against the valuation of four billion dollars. This would bring a cool billion to the government coffers in amount of money that can save a lot of roads and build a some hospitals and and such although in fact the cash earmarked to go to the IDs budget. One of the goals of the sale is to reduce the oversight to which he is subject has a government company by turning the company into a public private concern for which some but not all lawyers and accounts believe the oversight requirements are less draconian. The Ministry of defence is skittish about selling to private private investors including foreigners big share of the company that makes crucial stuff like iron dome's but that's why only twenty five percent is being jettisoned maintaining ministry of Defence Control over over the aerospace industry which is why it was completely shocking when this week the head of the Ira I labor union yet. You cuts demanded in the name. The Union that the government sell at least fifty one percent of the company essentially privatizing. It you'll cut is the son of Likud. MK Heim Cots. Who started working for the Israel aerospace industry as electronics technician back in nineteen sixty eight and who? I organized a union thirty seven years ago in nineteen eighty. Two was his years in labour that paves his way into politics and he was elected to the Knesset for the first time twenty years ago back in nineteen ninety nine when his started working for the I.. Heim cuts used his influence to advance him in a year ago. In May it was elected to head the Ai Union just like his dad had in demanding that the aerospace industries be made majority Jordan. Public cut said that this is the only way to really get the company out from under the thumb of the government as long as government is a majority shareholder of the company will remain subject to state regulation including salary restrictions and salary restrictions. Cut said are bad for workers who apparently have come to prefer higher salaries to lower salary. Magin yeah I guess I think they use the money to buy goods and services really. I think that's that's really revolutionary. If an offering is held cut said I is workers should should at least derive some benefit from it. There is good reason to things that causes demand will go unheeded as a ministry of defence is opposed and the Ministry of Defence has a great deal of sway all matters batters defense related. But whether the I is privatized or not this episode seems to say something important about the state of Labor in Israel in two thousand nineteen although just what it says says is not entirely clear. A good essay is money still uses the lead quote. It sounds like man bites dog referring to a union leader fighting to the transfer the company he works for into the hands of rapacious bottom line. Obsessed venture capitalists but then maybe in two thousand nineteen rapacious bottom line obsessed venture capitalists are better employers than the government which doesn't try to compete salary wise with Silicon Valley startups and doesn't install breakfast. Cereal bars that offer both cap'n crunch and Foodie pebbles that's good the devils. And maybe as cut says his job isn't to do what's best for the country but what's best for his workers still there is Something unnerving about a union demanding that his company be set free in the swirling currents of market forces which is maybe why one of the CO directors of the vigorous young Labor Organization called the power to the workers. SQI was nonplussed by causes demand quote. We haven't seen workers advocating privatization the opposite. We work with lots of exploited contract workers whose dream it is to work directly for the government which leads us to the question is cuts right to try. Tried to get the Israel Aerospace Industries into the hands of private tech venture capitalists and out of the hands of the government which might in the short term anyway raise wages for the workers. He represents percents. Well it's not my field of expertise but I totally don't get it you know I don't understand why somebody who is supposed to be you know in it for the workers would want to Do this kind of thing when you look at sort of the the roller coaster ride that completely privatized companies go on you know waves of layoffs. And you know crazy things. In order to tighten heighten the bottom line This may have something to do with politics. I don't know if he's following in his father's footsteps not only in leading the labor union but also with aspirations to Likud Likud power in there for you know the. I'm a little baffled but maybe knowing you're more schooled on these matters you can figure it out. Well I think did I understand why somebody in good faith would come to this position. And if I speak metaphorically I think that you also are are involved in the universities there are university professors. All of us except for the Peop- folks who work where Alice's husband works at the Interdisciplinary Center all of us have ah the same salaries in Israel I mean it goes up through time and tenure and advancement whatever but we're all linked to the same scale. It doesn't matter where you teach. It doesn't matter what you teach each and a lot of people feel like we should open up this baby and then first of all the the people who work in computer science and engineering would make astronomically larger salaries because they'd be competing with a different group of people and so if it turned out that a bunch of people who teach poetry made a lot less money than that would be a small price to pay there are a lot of professors who are in favor of their incomparable aerospace. I think it is comparable in that. The union that cuts overseas includes people who sweep the floors and people who design rockets. And I have a feeling that the results would be differential if they he ended up privatizing which is to say that the people who have the fancy jobs would probably indeed make a lot more money than they make. Now and the people who have the fancy jobs would make a lot less now to privatize. What's to stop the the rapacious capitalist who own it to say why are we paying all these lopate? Let's let's go contract worker them just like everybody but he also we can save money and then the lower ranking workers basically right so they almost certainly would so. I don't know the details of this. Well enough I only know from what I read with. Would you have five or six articles and who knows how accurate they are but it could be. That cuts is saying the people I want to support most are the people who have the the biggest upside here the the people who are the professional workers and then if it ends up that the people who sweep the floors and prepare the food in the in the lunchroom get screwed. Dude that's something we can live with because overall we'll have you know. Many people have their salaries I dunno doubled or tripled and that. That's worthwhile what he would need to pay. Attention didn't do as well though. In addition to the thing that you pointed out allison is the fact. That if this company ended up being owned by Lockheed or by Boeing. Here I'm relying on. I consulted with my friend. Who is a union genius at a professor of of Labor and Union activist for many many years? The professor Gordon Safer. He said these. These jobs could easily move overseas some of them. Some of them will stay in Israel but Y- Lockheed will be concerned with their bottom line and they operate all over the world old and so it's possible that cats playing this short game and thinking immediately and that he's right in the short term but that in the long term will be screwed. What do you think? Oh I want to add to that that I think the besides being concerned with the short-term about his group cohort or professional workers at. I think that the problem on with privatization is that in the short run. You know maybe even every single worker in the company will be better off. You know maybe sign some sort of you know collective contractor or something like that but we know from privatizations in Israel in the past years like the Dead Sea works that that something that usually happens. Is You know these privatizations strategy by you know. The working force forced into two completely different classes. You have you know. Workers who are first generation. Yeah you have first generation workers who are protected by contract and then the company starts to bring in contract workers who who have no benefits. They get paid less than minimum wage. And and you know you can put you create a a very very you know divided organization which is bad and you get to treat certain workers poorly because you have other. Workers WHO's interested is to keep this so is catches constituent as the head of the Union is his constituency. See The people who he is representing today or is this constituency the workers including all the workers to come. I think that's the question here is is actually you know ideological Eddie logic. I think if your labor union head who has you know a certain vision for the way Labor needs to work and the thing that you represent is more than you know your a cohort of workers. Then you need to be thinking in the long run about workers of the future as well. I also just to get beyond the labor issues for a minute because we are talking about Equipment A to protect our national security and our national defense. You know if Someday President Elizabeth Warren decides that Israel has really stepped beyond the line and she is not going to send send. I don't know sell from American companies to Israel make some sort of law or whatever and we're dependent on our own industry if the government does not have some sort of Complete control over our defense industry than we could find ourselves short of whatever equipment we need to defend the country. The bottom line for me in this issue is is that cuts is knows that Israel would never ever ever sell. Its I two into foreign hands. I think it would never give up complete control over this company so I wanNA connect to what Alison was saying. We know powerful union heads are in. Israel tend to be political players and and I don't know what his angle is. I don't know this story well enough but I think he knows very well. Oh that Israel would never agree to sell the company would never you know agreed to his demand. I think he's trying to leverage something. I think he's trying to make some kind of move. This thing was very largely publicized. which which didn't have to happen if this was maybe a real demand possibly so we'll keep following it? I I myself think that you know Haim Katz was a pretty good head of the union and yet your cats but I'm waiting for your cats is son to. I think it's going to be the the leader Junior. Yeah now listen to this on uranium visit. Visit Listen you WanNa Blah.

Can an app make the call on baseball umpires?

"It it's like money ble for Umpires from American public media this is marketplace tack demystifying the Digital Economy. I'm gotten wrong I asked Williams what's the idea behind turning the spotlight on the Yom's umpires on average make fourteen bad calls a game so that's make those instances less frequent over the summer robot umpires helped officiate minor league game the goal is not only to improve accuracy the calls but despite on behind home plate I think there's a great opportunity here as well just for fans to learn more about how it is to be an umpire the profession itself and Technology that tells you where the strike zone is and shows you the accuracy rate but yet behind home plate these umpires have to do it the old fashioned way just by human judgement and they WANNA make it free right well baseball is a game of nights and nine innings nine people in the field and I thought ninety nine cents was roughly one point six errors per inning that can dramatically impact game so it's really interesting to say will what areas are they weakest in market inefficiencies and squeeze every last bit of productivity out of their players but another issue is when an umpire gets a call wrong and Major League Baseball is trying years and I'm sure by fans that the Jacksons are occurring in part because of disputes of calls behind home plate so there is a need to improve what's going on all that can be used by major league baseball could be used by themselves really the study they're blind spots areas where they could improve that was going to ask you about the scrutiny this year was over two hundred twenty ejections it was thirty five percent greater than it was last year so there is increased frustration by players and manager how could improve it. I was GONNA ask you you of course are a finance professor this APP is it's going to cost us a book to to download former dramatically behind home plate there is no technology at all the fans when we're watching on TV or if you're livestream and you have access it up the game to get more butts in the seats Boston University professor Mark Williams thinks there's a way to use technology to make human better at their jobs before we turn the reins over to the bots he launched an APP that serves as a kind of digital baseball card for empires it's called up scores you can see how many calls have given empire has historic right proverbial emails and letters about that aren't doing the job right well the hope here is that this APP is really going to highlight those really strong ops and also give a tool vampires and how it could change the game it sounds like you think they do need more help from technology is that fair absolutely I think human collaboration with technology will improve outright it this labor of love I I don't expect to break even at all on this but I do expect to help fans and hopefully better the game through the for example some do really well in domes others not so much scrutinized to that extent where coaches are throwing red flags and asking that A strike call be reviewed well right now the Jackson rates humans make mistakes are we worried about sort of call reviews and things like that like we see in in certainly the NFL I mean our umpires going to be range of being able to jump Mark Williams developed an APP called up score grades umps and also shows us that weather conditions affect certain empires just like it does the player now for some related links Williams a red sox fan told me that he imagines one day fans will turn his into a sort of fantasy sports game so instead you know there are certain ups for example that do very well in certain parks there's certain upset do very well with certain pitchers and certain teams so the data's there drafting a shortstop and getting points when he hits a homer you'll be drafting umpires get points for their accuracy behind the plate it sounds crazy but I also thought I'd Rabin a fantasy Gulf league and if you're not into fantasy umpiring quite yet you might be interested in a different new Athens evaluates a pitcher's performance instead in all I'm doing is really creating the analytics so is mlb going to ask you if if they should be using this app they are the are the fans going to be able to sort of called pitch greater there's a piece about it on the ringer it was developed by Wayne boil a long island engineer who spent decades designing audio equipment he only at the APP to help his kid make his high school baseball team.

Israel's Netanyahu wins re-election, main challenger concedes defeat

"History is littered with great political comeback fodders. You think of Churchill Menzies do goal Nixon John Howard here in Australia by Japan Mahattaya in Malaysia well at Benjamin Netanyahu to the list region off time and again and against all the odds. He's bounceback with tremendous force to win a fifth term as Israel's prime minister now to he more about Netanyahu's triumph, and what it means for the Middle East. Let's he from one of Israel's most prominent commentators Yari is an Israel by Philo at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. He's author of among other books toward Israel Palestinian disengagement. I heard welcome to IB radio. Thank you for having. How do you account for Netanyahu's victory? Well, number one is to us. Over these comes to running election campaign and years, the manage the compaign alone single handed with a bunch of twenty five year old. Kids who were doing the social media for him. But the main polls is probably the fact that the majority if we want of the Israeli voters in that make me on Yahoo has heavies Dayton called and be charged with corruption breach of its then that team do that. And let's see what the decision of the court is. But in the meantime, according to the Israeli low lasts long before stepping Netanyahu became prime minister. He's allowed to stay in office until convicted at the last instance of the supreme court just. Oh. He's been accused of accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts in exchange for five years as well as cutting Elissa deals with media publishes now what he have to deal with these in Lockley document by this attorney general in Israel on charges of robbery and fraud. He has a there will be Irie. Which is the the is system. The lawyers Donyo will have the option to present the case of the defense to the attorney general, and then he has to make a decision on whether to press charges and exactly what charges had cases befall politicians in which the hearing change the decision of the general. So he denies wrongdoing, but he might have to step down as he fought the charges, but couldn't Yahoo push legislation grinding immunity to a sitting prime minister that's conceivable, isn't it. Oh, no. Netanyahu, according to Israel. You know, does not have to set down. And in fact, before foaming is next government the coalition government. He's going to secure the commitment of all these potential partners that the current low will be respected that means that baby can stay by means there and at the same time face trial. This is the low by the way, this low is exclusively for four prime ministers. It doesn't apply to ministers members of parliament, etc. Kinda victory some site that he's close relationship with President Trump helped. And if you think about Trump's coal for a US embassy in Jerusalem, US recognition of Israel sovereignty in the goal and hearts stash with Syria and the designation just last week of Iran's Islamic revolutionary guard corps as a terror organization to what extent to that. All of that help Netanyahu secure a fifth term. I think it does Netanyahu. That is is. His generally, including many of those who despised and we'd like to see him gone. They only create his qualities as an international statement. And I would like to point out if I may that even more than Trump, it is is close relationship with letting Putin that help begin because he's to today's early that he's in the position to have the air force start consistently against Iranian targets in Syria. And Mr Putin does not do anything to stop it. Although he has the air force. And the defense batteries underground in Syria that is intriguing because baby Netanyahu has also reached out to many of the SUNY Arabs in the Gulf states, and of course agent and clearly that move is primarily motivated by a joint fear of Iran. On. But you're saying that Netanyahu's close relationship with Putin also helps even though Putin is supporting Iran. Yes. But I think that what we see here is a balancing act played by to hidden in which you baby for over three news. Now, he has if you won't air force to go after the Iranians in Syria, hundreds and hundreds of strikes at the same time. He's using the Iranian issue theory. You know, the to the. The reverence there. So this is sort of hippie poop Putin game, which is going on. You've mentioned the relationship that BB has developed the Sunni Arab states, mainly the Gulf mainly Saudi Arabia and the United Emirates DC's for many in Israel. This is. Proof and everything that he's doctrine is working. And he's Dr knees, very simple. He says things the Palestinians are not willing to ever deal with for the foreseeable future. And that's the case this accepted by the majority of these. He says developed now relationship with the rest of the Arbor. So that later on maybe the students in soften their position and become possible. This works with Israeli public opinion. My guess is our hood Yari. He's a Middle East commentator for his Riley television, the more than four decades. And we're talking about baby Netanyahu shelled to be Israel's longest serving later back to Netanyahu. He's Wally believed to be smug and vindictive you account, the he's remarkable ability to overcome setbacks time, and again, I I know. Oh, be for many years. Politically is very very agile, very creative and innovative. He is an master of tricks, including Dietrich's, which are not in the political book of Israeli politics. He is a guy who doesn't have close friends is a guy who doesn't have people whom he really trust. But he's the guy who's trusted by many. So every everybody knows that the he's in a way a tricky BB. But people say who else do we have do we have a real alternative to be the moment the three ex-chief so fan stuff? We've new Bruin white poppy manage to beat these electorate and that they are not obsolete. And this is a good party reason why be one again. Really against all. Yes. And you say he's the master of dirty tricks babies. Also, the master of wrongfooting his opponents, if you think about the opposition live party creek me if I'm wrong, I think I've ruled Israel for most of its first three decades yet lie. I only want about five percent of the vote. How do you account for lives dramatic decline in Israel? Labor was decimated was gradually destroyed by deals local of ninety three they upset to these early public. We can have with the Palestinians. We could make peace late Prime Minister Rabin appeal by everybody and the late Chiba Perez and things early public by now could be that that was the wrong approach. So the labor party's paying the price. And what you have now a needs that even the people those ships are excerpts of stuff ran against to be now. And called a very very fine result. They were very careful not to say that they are left. It's a bed. World news any politics after flow be very careful not to say that they support a Palestinian state any foreseeable future. Your critic your critics Netanya his critics who had died side that Israel is on a trajectory to become an apartheid stidham bit. Lock the foam, South Africa Palestinians will eventually be a majority, but without the raw of citizens. This is Jonathan Freedland in the God. And he says that Netanyahu's re election heralds the further undermining of the rule of law including threats to the occupied Boyce Bank. How would you respond to those concerns? I it's not the first time that I disagree entirely with will ever Mr. three hundred writing, but Israel is not going to move to a next West Bank. And to assume that the only solution that we have inside is a one St. in which the Palestinians, do not be granted, equal rights is simply out of sync with was Israel is that same into that voted be Becky office. You'll have a it eighty five percent majority for two states Aleutian. Of course, once the Palestinians, Alrighty, finally to go for you have a solid eighty eighty five percent majority against on exertion of even parts of the west thing at cetera et cetera et cetera defect that we are not going to have tomorrow. The fact that the may not be Mr.. Now's first priority. Now does not mean that we are down leaper slope of going to watch date. That's something which is not going to happen knowing my country for what it is.

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc

"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go

Netanyahu fights for a fifth term in office

"Today. We're looking at the Israeli election and joining me on the line from Tel Aviv is correspondent there Malhotra vast Uva and in studio Middle East editor Andrew England metal first of all were about a week away from polling. It's a lively time, isn't it? Because Benjamin Netanyahu was in Washington receiving kind of benediction from Donald Trump, and then had to return suddenly to Israel, can you summarize what's been happening in the last week or so there's been a very exciting last week or so for one looks like one of the most exciting is really election than a long time. Nothing. Yahoo is neck and neck with a brand new party to doom exist more than a month ago called the blue and white party and for him to hold onto his right-wing bays mission with an Yahoo has to emphasize his security credentials and his connection with the White House and the last three or four days we're supposed to be just that supposed to be a victory lap. He was going to go to the White House. He was going to be greeted by his friend. President Donald Trump, and he would receive a document that says Americans recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Something the right-wing here has wanted for a long time. But just as he landed in the US and just as the global victory lap as you may call it began an attack from the HAMAS-controlled on plea with Gaza through all the plans into disarray. He decided to cut his trip short and come back here. So he can lead. Whatever response is really government comes up with to the sudden esscalation from unprovoked rockets from Gaza, and so we've had a week of almost complete chaos and a lack of direction from the two leading candidates. But in a sense, obviously hard to gate how these things play. But if the prime minister Netanyahu is relying on the security card doesn't attack from HAMAs possibly help him you'd think so except Gaza has proven to be the prime minister's achilles heel for the last year or so instead of being able to push for a longer. Term ceasefire something called a food snob by HAMAs. He has been looking for the short opportunity to kick the can down the road through concessions that are granted do HAMAs in order to stop protests to stop these haphazard rocket attacks or to hold back any of these so-called terror balloons, where young men in Gaza are attaching multiple cocktails, basically, the bottom of balloons and letting them fly into Israeli territory. So it's turned into a bit of a successful blackmail on the side of HAMAs. An achilles heel for Netanyahu and a reminder two weeks right before elections that he's not able to bring the kind of calm that he promises he'll bring. He's not exactly looking really good for him. And Andrew, of course, the other background is that he goes into this election with this corruption probe and deep potential prosecution hanging over his head. Yeah. That's correct. He would be the first sitting prime minister to be indicted. If the attorney general to the it we should say, whilst the attorney general has announced his intention to indict him, the prime minister still has the right to appeal. Appeal that sort of a pay before a hearing and argue against him being indicted, but it is just quite a lot of uncertainty. The closest the race was unexpected a few months ago, the fatten that Netanyahu could be indicted. And then if he does manage to succeed and full Moco, listen off the election and retain the prime ministership, then they'll be a period of uncertainty as the legal process plays out. So I think it kind of ended period of uncharted territory for Israel in terms of the politics will be promised. You haven't seen for decayed, and my whole is it your impression that the corruption allegations have damaged him. I think that what has happened over here is that when the crops in ligations were first aired two years ago. There was a possibility that you'd see a large amount of votes shifts, simply because of the allegations that evidence that came out, but in the last two or three years, prime minister has marshalled is very loyal base into a judiciary versus a right-wing argument that has made especially in terms of voting patterns the announcement of this intention to indict him have Velu Iliffe. On how his base will vote. But it's create an opportunity for the opposition to say, well, look, it's time to change horses. This is our chance to bring in a fresh slate. And it's energized them in a way that they were not so in previous elections. So while it's impossible to say that he's lost votes. It has certainly made him vulnerable in terms of the narrative, and in terms of the messaging as he goes into the elections Netanyahu likes to project himself as a man astride Israeli politics a man above it. All instead now, he's on the defensive and no politician likes to be in that position. And Andrew I mean, what do we make of the opposition? Because the leader Benny is new to politics. He's very much a political neophyte, and we don't really have a clear idea of his policies. We know he's a former chief of staff with the Israeli defense forces, and that's in the past Rabin brek Fulmer chiefs of stars who became prime minister. So that's not unusual, but internally his policy he's kind of giving mixed messages on the one hand, he said, you know, he would never get. The golden heights the occupies Syrian territory, and he's used videos of war against HAMAs in Gaza as part of his election campaign on the other hand. He's also said that you know, there's no shame in striving for peace. He can play the whole cash hard man military figure on the one hand. But he's indicating perhaps he could take a softer stance on the peace process Netanyahu. We just really don't know. I mean, he is applicable neophytes. He said it's only in the last few weeks that he's put together this party. So he's very much an unknown quantity. In terms of what his politics would be. I think and meanwhile, my whole I guess the traditional left parties in Israel being fucking put it that way left behind them in labor is well behind in third, and I gathered the main sort of left party merits may not even make parliament. It's a motive complete decimation for labor, which is if you're the party that founded this country and had towering leaders like, you know, he's

As bitcoin trading shifts shape, big money stays away

"Of this bitcoin meltdown here. I think that bitcoin with something that you could never really touch. It wasn't tangible like gold or anything like that. So a lot of it was based on a market almost like we saw with the tulips going back to sixteen hundred. So it was a craze people got involved. They saw the ability to make big money fast and a time where nobody can make big money fast, anywhere, really low interest rates. No, good ROI. They were looking for something they got desperate and that became the craze. And I heard so many people saying no matter what they're not selling. And they still haven't sold and. It's sad to watch in life. I'm a very positive person, but comes the market some train skeptic. So this was something I said a year ago, I told people to stay away. I did it live on television cryptos of either fans as well. As skeptics skeptics include Norio, Rabin, you described the crypto currency underlying technology, even blockchain technology has overblown technology. What's your view on all these names out there? I think the technology itself blockchain technology, we'll have practical purposes, I like to the way it was explained to me in the way that you could track. Like, we've been seeing a lot of recalls for lettuce different kinds of lettuce and need for salmonella and one of the problems they have to do massive recalls because they don't know where it came from an idea of blockchain is that they'll be able to know instantly, where Val break came from technology that was an example of it. So the technology itself makes sense, but it never made sense. That you would need a different way to pay for it. And that's what I couldn't wrap myself around. I wanted to I couldn't. So I mean between light coin and ripple ripple had probably the best shop because it was being endorsed by the banks. So I saw that made you know, I looked at ADA because one of the guys that left a cerium started that and I was looking at all these things there was no way not to pay attention. But none of them. I wouldn't I don't know many of them. And I wouldn't I don't believe in. All right. So is bitcoin going zero. I guess what did they say? There's always a market somewhere. You know? I just literally was reading on Twitter the other day. I saw someone saying he's gonna buy the dips. You know, some people this is Michael. Katrina thing. But for me, if I'm gonna speculate I'm much more excited right now about the emerging marijuana industry. And when you get deregulation and has a lot of uses I've been spending a lotta time paying attention to that. So I mean, fun fact for you, not the axiom credited with inventing, the word yolo, I used to be proud of that because it was such a cool word and everyone uses it. Now, it's like an embarrassing to even mention it because it's an outdated word. I think bitcoin is not like a topic of conversation anymore. Yeah. None of my community. Members are even asking me about it.

"And there is an important distinction of would like to make indeed the settlement project often unto six seven began under labour governments and these liberal governments cooperated with and comissioned religious settlers and the supported the desire to settle but at the same time they also opposed to settlement in the densely populated mountainous region of the west bank rabin was called the settlements a cancer and he tried to stop them on multiple occasion when he did support than those for settlements along degree line either the hurried the or the secular settlements that expanded doing the host for years but the villages zaini settlers could be seen as people have be sent by others but in fact they are the only ones who willing to settle in the areas where in between palestinian villages in densely populated palestinian areas that the world more dangerous but also make the contiguity of a palestinian state impossible therefore the territory partition impossible or at least unlikely so while they haven't done this on their own without them they played wolf avangard and today they very clearly played that role in this weakness it and the end is really government so one cannot move the responsibility fully former their religious settlers to their labor movement began to project because the other avangard and they are the ones who pushed the settlement project into his that end very piece today maybe but it sounds like from what you're saying if i can try to characterize it that everybody sent somebody so even if rabin didn't send the religious settlers he was signing the ultraorthodox any maybe other in other parts of the west bank is that correct characterization yes all aspects of israeli so the society have found the niche in the west bank.
