"What is it done to your help desk? And what kind of does that change? The nature of the kind of calls that you're getting. Does that mean shifting different hours to cover what people are doing. Yeah with our operations team. We had to modify they could not completely work remotely but what I've challenged them with is push as many things remote as you can think differently that you know One of the things first things we had to address was users coming down and handing off devices in person because that's the way they've always done it and it would just break this social distance saying suddenly you have come in contact with a device So we've gotten them some new tools to do better remote service on PC's and we're looking into ways that we can provide remote services on mobile devices and it's it's really that challenge of just approach it differently. Approach it with okay. We're separated. How can I still provide support? Can I walk them through? This can provide them a video. What can I do to get them through this problem without having to meet in person and then we've got one tech here and that offloads as much of their physical workload is possible so the things that can't be done remotely or done in person so that raises an interesting question? I mean you kind of alluded to this. But it's always easy to look back and say wow certain things it always becomes clear when you look behind back. What would be a couple of things that you would have done differently? Today I would have started stressing remote service and remote support Much earlier and much more strongly I think that we have the tools for it. We knew it was out there but we didn't have the need. The exigency wasn't there and I mean exigency is the mother of invention. It's when you have no other alternative and if you're boats leaking you're gonNA find a plug so for us. This obviously motivated us to start taking that much more seriously than we did before. And you know we're we're getting through it but it would've been a much easier transition if we'd been having this discussion a year ago and as we wind up this discussion what would you say is your biggest frustration at least up to now. It's tough to say because I really haven't had the luxury be frustrated You know I think it's a frustration is is an adopted mindset. If you decide that you're going to let them bury its way in just issue off your then that's going to disrupt your way of thinking moving forward so I think that You know the friction points on this have been friction points. Where if anything? It was exactly. What's talked about lack of Han hindsight lack of foresight earlier? I I got no one to kick but my cell phone that one. We've had the support and we've had the means we just didn't make it a priority. That probably should have been but I think especially as a later. You've got a really suck up the frustration factor because it's contagious and if you let your team see that that something's got you down or something's got you Frustrated then they're gonNA take that as as okay. That's a permissible attitude. And it's you know what I told him is if you got something that you need to get off your chest. Let's talk one on one and and you can say anything you want to be in any manner you want to say it and I will listen and I will not judge in. This will not be part of anything other than this conversation. But it's got to go up hill so for me. My Thunder Buddies my deputy director. If I have something that I absolutely just need to get out invent I close the door while I used to close the door. Now we do a private chat. And just say hey. I'm GonNa Download something on you and I just need you to listen and then talk me off this ledge. And that's what we do and there's just such tremendous value in having a thunder buddy and this can be a really lonely position if you don't find one so yeah definitely especially when you're so much behind the scenes to so many people but you're doing an amazing job there for those who may have just joined us.

"Deep dives into what is going on in the world of cities and counties across the United States in particular diving into what's going on what it comes to technology leadership we are going across the country holding interviews with Various people that we know that have risen to the occasion. And today. We're GONNA be talking with Sarah. Polk who is the CEO of the city Rancho Cucamonga. So Darryl first of all welcome thank you. Allan. It's going to be talking with you again. Yeah so why? Don't you tell us two things to start this up? I have a bunch of questions. Tell us a little bit more about yourself and things like how did you get to where you are? How long have you been there and also a little bit about the city? Yeah sure so. On a personal level I kinda took the long and winding road to CIO. So I started more on the operational side as a nine one one dispatcher. For Twenty years for the Police Department and kind of work my way up and took on technology within that and when the time came and the opportunity came my kind of jumped over straight into the technology side of the House and about four years ago the position opened up here in Rancho Cucamonga for their for CIO. So through my hat in the ring and against all odds. I was the guy that got call. So I've been in this job since two thousand sixteen and love. My team and I love working for the city. So that explains your professional voice dispatcher. As long as you've had I did not know that about you And one thing you left out you are graduate of PT IS CERTIFIED GOVERNMENT CIO program. So congratulations on that achievement. I'm sure you have others but I had to put a plug in for that. Tell us a little bit more about the city. If you would sure so Rancho Cucamonga about forty miles east of Los Angeles and where a mid to large community for California one hundred seventy five thousand population so were not complete. Full service Public Safety is handled by our sheriff's department and we have a fire district that we do support for it. So I'd say we're probably eighty percents full service And right now I mean. Obviously we're in kind of an extraordinary time so our cities mission right now is to provide as many of those services as safely as possible so it's been a real interesting couple of weeks leading into this conversation and we're gonNA get into that. I need to ask you also. How many do you have or that? You know I have to ask that question carefully because some will say well I have direct reports or you may have federate organized in your city. Yeah so We have the it's the Department of Innovation and technology do it and We've got twenty three full time positions as broken into four divisions. I've got my systems team. Animals network and data center at got my applications team. That handles all of our enterprise. Applications got my operations team. That's a direct user support and Endpoint devices and then I've got my team and we are very fortunate to have one of the most robust and professionally competent teams in state. Maybe in the country we were sixty. Gs Wow that is so impressive. So we're now trying to define what is going to be the new normal. This is being recorded at a time when we're kind of still figuring out the implications of Code Nineteen so. I guess my first question is what have you learned us are about how tech leadership has been put to the test regarding the pandemic. Yeah so I think I've seen it validate a lot of beliefs. That have come up last year when I was going through the CG CEO Program you know one of our conversations was you know how remote workforce is GonNa play out for government. And at that point it was more academic. It was just out of a a nice little bar conversation. About what do you think? And now it's mission critical and the role of the CIO. Made the heart with that that now my job before this was to spur innovation. But keep the lights on and now it's to crash land innovation in a responsible way And it's really trying to take all the ingredients. We've gotten the Pantry and make dishes that we never thought we could make Let's talk about the Pantry. Let's talk about some of the things that you've had to do your load. Everyone has faced change before but never this rapid and never with such a degree of uncertainty. Suddenly how a workforce is working how relating to citizens is never before And it seems somewhat seamless many people but it wasn't so when all of a sudden we got the call I guess one morning and suddenly it's like we have to do things very differently so if you would share some of the things that you had to do a very short amount of time. Yeah sure I I think it was a two-fold issue was getting our staff access remotely but also ensuring that all our services were available to the public remotely and we were fortunate in that we were already running down the road of getting more and more of our public services online and available through other than present means so we were just really ramping up closing the end. Points on a lot of those systems Whereas before we had maybe built it out forty fifty percent and said that's good enough for now and we'll do the rest in person. Nope now we gotta finish that right this second. So our permitting is online We're running our city clerk's office through Our online portals. So we've probably taken I would say better than eighty percent of our public facing processes and made them available through online or through phone or through some other means than coming in and person so that raises the question in terms of of help us. Get a feel for what you're dealing with. How many of the workers of the city are now working remotely? So we've got about five hundred full time employees And another three hundred part time of the fulltime employees. I would say we've got a third working remote a third that are in kind of an idle position because the work that they were doing has been suspended. Then another third. That's here at City Hall. And so now the mission that I'm on is taking that remaining third here at City Hall and Chipping. Away at how I can get them working remote. And it's tough. Would supply chains disrupted and vendors coming back saying that. There's a thirty sixty ninety day. Lead time on of the essentials. You know a lot of us got caught flat-footed so yeah. I don't think anybody could have foreseen some demands or the rapidness of which this came upon us. So when you talk about supply chain. I mean in particular. What I'm hearing is Difficulty in getting additional laptops. Even headsets cameras. Are those kind of things that you're dealing with now. Yeah exactly. It's the peripherals that before. Were you know Ninety dollars on Amazon and no big deal and just recently the latest Challenge that I've come up with is we're seeing knockoff. Brands coming up on some of the supply channels like Amazon that are potentially have baked in malware that they're offering them at the ridiculous prices their off brand. And so now we're having to vet these hard and we've got staff. They're kind of running rogue and trying to procure because they suddenly need these devices so Yeah so what about capacity you had issues like suddenly realized that you need to add perhaps some more VPN licenses or had increased capacity at the back end. Are those kind of issues that you've had to deal with or planning for so we've been very fortunate both in the platforms that we invested in and the vendors that were working with vm. Ware has been very gracious with us. in upping our concurrent licenses and allowing us to kind of burst through that And if we keep it then we true up at a later time but for about a sixty day window. We can kind of utilize more than we're licensed if we need to We're also looking at that same capacity with our phone vendor shorts L. where we have remote licensing this available there so lucky for us. We were already on the roadmap towards remote work so we had the tools in place. It's just working on getting the capacity with those to support way more people than we thought but knock on wood so far we've been able to do it successfully so someone was to ask you which. I am going to ask you. What would be the three things one of the three takeaways you learned through this crisis so I guess number one is have great relationships with your fellow department heads and your fellow executives before you go into a crisis that trust is like a bank account you gotta make frequent deposits because when it comes to make withdrawals you better have some credibility in there to draw from and so. I feel very fortunate that I've got a great team that we had kind of built up that trust relationship beforehand Two is make sure your voice is heard at the table that has no longer support function. It's a decision. Making function and technology became front and center in this particular event. And I suspect in future events. It's GonNa Continue to stay front and center. So if you're with the city the county make sure that you have a voice directly with your senior administrator and that they're paying attention to what you're saying And then third would be. Just make sure you've got a great team and treat your team well. What I'm trying to do is show them that. I won't make them do anything I won't do and that my ambition is protecting them during this. They feel protected they'll produce. I think that's great. I'm hearing from so many folks like you that the one thing you're not worried about getting support from above another words are looked upon for the first time as heroes although. I got the feeling you already in that capacity but I'm assuming that any capacity issue is not money right now. No I got full support from my Senior executives all the way up to the council and I really if anything. Now it's just trying to provide meaningful advice in meaningful direction understanding that. If you want the voice you gotta support the voice that you also don't have the escape hatch well. I was told to do this and I'm just doing it. If you want to sit at the table you gotTa have the responsibility of holding that seat. Yeah so you know. I'm big on professional development and ongoing training Do you see based on what you are asking your staff to do any gaps that you see in terms of skill sets so the biggest gap that I found was lack of cross train that I think that we natively allow people to kind of Pigeonhole into form their silos on their expertise and so one of the things that I'm doing is with my staff working remotely is if you are have downtime. In between tasks use remote learning look into a field that is other than your own and start gaining expertise in that you can overlap with each other and we'll see how that plays out but I think if I had known this was coming I would have put more time in developing a deeper bench. Lucky for me my deputy director Shelly Munson just completed the CGI CIO program. And so I know we both learned a lot of lessons there and so it's been a very comfortable dialogue between the two of US exchanging responsibility on this so we're running is kind of an ABC team. And I want people to look with look to her with the same confidence they would look to me. So that's worked out pretty well so far and she's been a great addition to our program you mentioned earlier about Keeping a good team and building morale has got to be part of that. During a crisis people have all sorts of problems wouldn't have had before in terms of family and work home with kids. Pets the whole thing trying to get through trying to get toilet paper Do you have any tips that you could share in terms of how you work with your staff to kind of keep morale up because it's no longer. I'll take you to lunch or let's have a drink so any tips that you might want to share on that front yeah I think what's worked for me. So far is just checking in casually but letting them know that. I'm not checking up on them. Checking in with them. Sit just hey how you holding up your family doing good everything good. I don't need to be a video. I don't need it to be an audio. Just a quick message works just fine and constantly reminding them that. Look you're working remotely. I don't need you to be a slave to your desk. I don't need you to be chained to the dining room table. I just need you to do what you're doing and be responsive and you know stay with the team and Yesterday we did our first teams lunch. we're big on communal lunches here. So I'm real big on kind of a you know. The whistle blew. Let's go out and grab some lunch and kind of decompress for bit so we're trying to replicate that using teams and it kind of allows them to kick the tires and stretch their use on that But at the same time you know just have facetime with each other just kind of have that social element that. I think we all miss a lot. Yeah I mean I'm seeing the use of video being used an awful lot when you talk about having your lunch break in. Today's modern setting. Are you talking about virtual experience where cameras are on? Yup Absolutely so. It was voluntary. And I'm not GonNa make anybody show me in their Hoagie but having the cameras there. I think the more people that turned invited people turn theirs on and it wasn't the same as eating together but it definitely add that tone to it and I thought it was a real valuable exercise. That's very cool. One of the things that I've tried to do I share. Your approach is trying to come up with fun kind of weird backgrounds to kind of live and things up you know in terms of background. I have one of just a whole garage full of toilet paper and You know things like that or my case. Shark tank you know the TV thing night logo behind me so the having all these virtual backgrounds could be a lot of fun too so throughout this whole now that you have so many more people working remotely and that may continue for a while..

Why Are Some Words Funny?
"In the nineteen seventy-five movie, the sunshine boys, an aging vaudeville, comedian explains a classic truism of comedy to his nephew the case. Sound is always funny. The comedian played by Walter Matthau said fifty seven years in this business. You learn a few things, you know, what words are funny. And which words are not funny. Alka seltzer is funny. You say alka seltzer. You get a laugh, Casey Stengel. That's a funny name. Robert Taylor is not funny. Cupcake is funny tomato is not funny. Cleveland is funny. Maryland is not funny. Then there's chicken chicken is funny. Pickle is funny. And it's true. If you need a place name for a punchline, you're guaranteed to kill with Kalamazoo, connected key or Rancho Cucamonga, but why psychology professor Chris Westbury at the university of Berta has a fascinating theory. And it's based on perhaps the two unfunny est words in the English language statistical, probability Westbury. Published a paper in October of two thousand eighteen in the journal of experimental psychology with a first rate title, Wrigley, squeaky, Lennox and boobs. What makes some words funny in his research? He started with the list of the five thousand English words rated funniest by real humans and constructed a working with medical model for predicting the laugh factor of nearly every word in the dictionary. When Westbury applied his model to a data set of forty five thousand five hundred and sixteen English words, it decided that these ten words were the funniest of all up Chuck bubbly Baath wriggly. Yes, giggle. Kuch Cafa puffball and gigli runners-up included squeaky flappy and bucco and the perennial favorites of every eight year old on the planet poop, puke and boobs on the other end of the spectrum the word found to be the absolute least funny was harassment. In his paper Westbury explains that philosophers have been trying to unravel the mystery of humor for millennia Plato and Aristotle we're big fans of humor seeing it mostly as a way of denigrating and feeling superior to others Casero introduced incongruity theory, a writing that the most common kind of joke is when we expect one thing and another is said in which case our own disappointed. Expectation makes us laugh while the incongruity theory of comedy makes perfect sense of even rainy tins. Find switcheroo tricks high. Larry's Westbury says that it's not a true scientific theory in the clearly not every incongruence event is as funny as another a random coughing fit in a crowded movie theater isn't nearly as comical as a random farting fit. I mean, just try to say random farting fit without smiling. So the goal of Westbury's modeling experiments was to go beyond philosophical theorising and come up with a truly quantifiable scale of funny to do it. Westbury analyst words. In two different ways by their meaning and by their form for the first analysis. The researchers looked at semantic predictors. That group words with similar meanings. Using a free tool developed by Google that identifies words that are commonly used for one another aka co occurrence Westbury mapped out the semantic relationships between two hundred and thirty four of the human picked funniest words from this correlation plot, the researchers identified six different clusters or categories of funny words, insult sex party animal bodily function and expletive. Now. This is where things get dangerously mathematical since many of the words on the human rated funny list fell into more than one category. Other researchers needed a more precise measurement of how a words being translated into comedy using the Google tool. They came up with lists of words most closely related to each of the six categories, then they came up with the average values for each of those word categories. Using something called linear regression analysis. Those average values for each category. You know, insult expedited cetera became known as category defining vectors. When looking specifically at meaning it turns out that the funniest words don't necessarily fall cleanly into the most categories, but are the words whose mathematical values are the closest on average to those six category defining vectors. Here's how Westbury summed it up in a press. Brief the average similarity of a words meaning to these six categories is itself, the best measure, we found of a words funniness, especially at the word also has strongly positive emotional connotations. But meaning is only one type of measurement Westbury and his team looked at the form of funny words, a things like word length or the individual sounds or phonemes that make up each word in the second analysis the data fit nicely with the incongruity theory of humor. It turns out that the fewer times a word or its phonemes appear in the language. The funnier we think they are that helps explain why there are so many K and use ounds in funny word lists. There's typically improbable where it's ending in L E. Like Waddell in wriggle or another source of funds suggesting as the study, put it repetition usually with diminutive aspect. So why are we laughing? Now, this is where things get really weird the human brain seems as running all of these complex mathematical models all the time without any of us knowing it as we watch TV and read and talk to people our brains are constantly parsing language for subtle semantic, cross-connections and statistical probabilities and the result, at least on this basic one word level is what we call humor Westbury said if asked which letter is more common p or be I think the average person would have no clue consciously, but unconsciously they are sensitive to that. And we know that because they're funding this judgments are reflecting. Exactly that kind of fine tuned calculation. In other words, said Westbury people are using emotions to do math. Westbury argues that all of this makes perfect sense. Abolution airily our brains had been hardwired over millions of years to identify anything that's out of the ordinary as a potential threat and human emotions, including humor likely developed as ways of responding to improbable events and environments Westbury summed it up people laugh based on how improbable the world is. Of course, it's a long conceptual leap from predicting the funniness level of individual words to modeling the comedic mechanics of knock knock joker salty Limerick. But whispers, work points the way, maybe someday we'll finally understand why that chicken crossed the road. One thing's clear, though, a frog wouldn't have been half as

MLB -- Clayton Kershaw in for his toughest stretch run yet
"It's Madison Bumgarner versus Clayton Kershaw than at Seattle for three. They're really good. Even playing Seattle just swept the Astros in Houston, and then home to Saint Louis, their eight games over five hundred before things get easier with the Padres in the Rangers. But this this next nine games is going to be a really critical stretch for the dodgers and they're gonna have to figure out what to do with the bullpen. I think that did putting stripling in my aid in the bullpen is smart. I think that gives you two more options there and you know, they've had seven walk off losses this year. That's brutal. That's, but I'm not. I don't know why I'm not panicking yet. I, I guess it's because. Nobody else in the division, and maybe this is lack of respect on my part.
