"The newer version, newer functionalities available to you. So this is all built into the system. And you can do this maintenance and upgrade while your front end load is you can still take the same front end load while this happened. And that's the sort of this we have to take into account because these days there's no more maintenance windows, pager carrying people on weekends. That's gone away from that to virtual or software defined deployments and this is what this is model for. I'm assuming that nobody uses or very few people use couchbase for olap queries. Is that correct? Ever uses an analytical database? Yes, definitely most definitely use that as an olap database as well. There's a famous food delivery company which sort of does all their data science team completely depends on couch phase that are some of these aforementioned companies use cases that have talked about. They use that for the olap thing. Their main sort of what we hear back from them is that two things. One is that analytics on the JSON itself. This is not easy thing to pull off so to say. I mean, because people, what they do is, as you know, JSON is a lingua franca of the web. So all the data is sort of in a JSON format. Now I have to convert that into a star schema or a snowflake schema based on whatever sort of olap system I'm using, and there's a ETL process I have to go through. And then I have to dump it into that. Now I queried when I bring it back to my operational system for insights I had to redo this whole thing. So this entire process is convoluted and complicated. That's one part of the equation for them. The other is the fact that if my data is already sitting in operational database as a JSON, now in near real time, I can give you analytics because I just have to issue the analytics query on the same sort of JSON without me having to ever touch the JSON at all. And out comes the insight which I can feed it back into the operational side. It is not just for reporting purposes, which is, of course, where it is mainly a majority we're used for to find insights and reports. But you can sort of feed that information back to the operational system, so it can now react to the insights you are gathering near real time. So that's the fundamental benefit. An example is like an ad targeting system and ad serving system. Let's say you are now sitting in your browser and looking for, let's say, shoes. And you know how these days what happens is that you will search for shoes today for the next week you are haunted by shoe ads, any website that you go to. That's because the inside that you are looking for a shoes is something that they come to, which many cases takes, sometimes 12 hours, sometimes 24 hours, which is a vast improvement than the way it used to be, the whole app systems were two, three months behind, not too long ago, then where the OLTP systems are. So now you can do it within a day. But that is because you're taking all the data and the operational system moving it into a Hadoop or any of the analytical side, all the ETL it goes through now there it runs the compute to see what is the right a Ravi searching for shoes let me play as this Nike add over there. They are the ones who are giving me the most bang for the buck based on the keyword searches or whatever. Now you send that information back, which is again batched back to the operational system because this is the fastest ad serving system so to say. So it comes back here. By the time it comes back, you're done with your super precious. But when you use a system like couch phase, this is just another query that is sort of running while you're sitting in this thing. So even if that query takes tens of seconds, you are still in that browser page, and you can actually see the ad serve while you are actually serving as a much better probability of you clicking that is a deal there that is appealing to you or a style there that is appealing to you. It actually comes to you at your point of engagement rather than later. And that's the benefit of the whole no ETL piece. I was just talking about is that it reduces the time to insight from days to hours to seconds and milliseconds. Cool. Yeah, I didn't know that. So as we begin to wind down the conversation I'd like to talk about the more recent product, which is capella, which is a database as a service, what's the difference between using a database as a service versus just using cloud managed instances? So good question. There are so we offer you the full choice of deployment. However you wanted. You can run it on prem and manage it yourself. You can dot it on.

"So that required a modern way of thinking in so if you ask many of the enterprises will tell you in the last ten years, any new product that we have started, we have never started assuming it'll be a relational system. There was some of the workloads tilted some relational systems more and more of what people are building on based on these the newer workloads, newer types of engagement oriented applications people are building their all come from the NoSQL kind of the house. And so that's an a brief natural that a lot of details. Underneath it is where no SQL systems they solve the scale problem. Not all but some of them, but also the schema flexibility problem. And eventually by solving both these, it's also finally ends up being a cost. Which is cheaper for the engineering development teams to support such systems than the classic relational systems. What are the ways in which the couch based architecture has evolved over time? When we started about good 78 years ago, we were a simple key value store, our origins, our DNA starts with one of the best highest performing caches that is very popular, which is called memcache D so we were in memory distributed sort of a cache. And from there the evolution was to sort of write through cache. What if this cache, this is performing so well can be persistent. So then it becomes a process to cache. And from there, now can you query this? Can you analyze stuff in this? Can you search the data that is sitting in this? This is how you sort of evolved it to say how can we offer you this blazing performance that is built into our DNA. And then give you all the semantics of a database all the way from the durability guarantees the asset capabilities and yet maintain the scheme of flexibility that is inherent in these JSON document databases that we have built for the NoSQL world. So it has evolved from being a simple key value store to a full fledged database which can offer you durability guarantees.

"For those who do have investable abbots really take a hard look at your portfolio and say you know do i really want to have This component in fixed income.

Seeing effectively negative returns because patients way above that For those other holding cash that significant amounts of your Your net worth taking a very hard look at that and they cannot put us to work somewhere else. That's gonna participate in this inflation so at least not losing purchasing power that example of the one million dollar house turning into a ten million dollar house and not be worth anymore. Because it's still the same house. At least you'll protect it You're a lot happier than the guy who's out there with a million dollars cash or n. T-bills that if you can do anything like that now is the time. Everybody should be taking a look at their portfolio. Of course i'm in the gold business. That's why i started. The company had this view The way for me to make an investment in a company and be a very large shareholder of it That was kinda sculpted around my macro view. That goal is going to increase dramatically in value and would be the ultimate protection as an asset. That's totally inanimate immutable announced. The goal denounced the gold And in my beliefs Although my conviction and certainly Been challenged in recent years. And i myself become directly involved in the Cryptocurrency business ecosystem in in different ways. i still believe it's Ultimately going to reappear as primary anchor financial system Not exactly the same way that it was One hundred years ago where we're The us dollar was angered the to goal. And everyone else anger to the us dollar Immediate another level but there there is a reason why most of the world learned holders gold in the world are still countries in central central banks They didn't think it was worth anything. Why would they hold literally trillions of dollars of it. Trillion dollars goal I think goran. Sally i started selling it. If i really thought that. Wasn't we're going to be worth anything. That'd be a good way to my deficit Why have central banks been buying more and more of it. Since the financial crisis they were net sellers for years In aggregate they were selling bowl but since the financial crisis no eight they've been net buyers And if you conspicuous one. China of course while well documented but also When i focus on a lot russia and but what what do they know So let's Let's see how that play for them. But i think that that that will. We'll see a reappearance of that. As an anchor to the financial system in that narrative develops or even happens. We'll see Gold continued valued differently in us. Our terms in euro terms renminbi terms. I e higher and being coveted more and people seeing more and more of that narrative start to play out. We'll continue on this upward trajectory for gold price. Enter the entire precious metals It's not for everybody but for me as the owner slash operator I interested in being in the gold equity business another level leverage on top of just the gold price. Of course you have operating leverage your stock. He'd get the higher mobile as people. Get more interested in this actor and you basically have more torque and more leverage to that investing team so that that's my approach doesn't fit for everybody By i if i do one piece of advice to share but It would be take a hard. Look at what your or polio. Looks like with gonna come into your portfolio over the next several years. Are you down funding your house. Do you have to outside your house you know. Make sure that you're comfortable with the money that you have in fixed income investments and certainly cash and take a long hard thing about it. Is there a way. I could use something better that that the more matches kind of environment that we're going to be in the next several years that if it's not gonna meet me off the money at least it's gonna protect all the money that i have now.

"Welcome back. i've got ravi on the line. Revie how are you. I'm fantastic michael. Great to have you do some interesting work in a variety of different things Especially in monetary policy and in crypto and all kinds of other sons so once share with the audience. A little bit about you and the work you do. And then we'll dive it. Sure by background educational background. Anyways mathematician and computer scientists have not been any of my career specifically in the. He'll spend the first half in the investment business and ultimately running an investment firm based in canada And then the last twelve or thirteen years of my career. I guess they can call myself an entrepreneur and kind of If there's anything i can say with the focus of my Career it would be that I've kind of focused. On emerging markets or or even frontier markets and to human opportunities that may have existed in western europe or north america where traditional markets But i i just found More interesting or maybe even a bigger opportunity because they are in those emerging markets and so those are fields like renewable energy gold-mining and that's really ties into my views on monetary all at the dabbled also in crypto mining As well as the primary agriculture all. Those things are top of mind with a lot of government agencies especially renewable energy and of course in the us you know there is a lot of talk about infrastructure although we have really seen the legislation come about yet but it's still early in the new administration so you know that takes time But renewable energy gold. Obviously you know has been around for quite some time. And it's it's one of those foundations where I always like it. When i hear people say gold's down and all of a sudden it's like then you look as well. It's a lot higher than it was when my parents bought me a gold. Watch when for my high school graduation. So i i know it's definitely worth more now than it was then But you know all of these commodities and in different ways and the monetary policy Component of as well is so critical because before we had currency had gold. You've got you know mining and things like that but there's more things involved now and that's making monetary policy a lot more interesting in also challenging for governments across the globe said love to hear your thoughts on that absolutely and and We always try to human. It's human nature to try. And actually i think about when history. It look like this and what happened then and maybe they can give me some clues to what happened now and of course that the great thing to do and it makes sense to do that. But if you try to look back If years or one hundred years my goodness like how difference does this world look and how much more naked are re and Just give a very specific example of that The last time we saw the united states That carry a debt loads that was similar to what it is today in terms of adepts. Gdp and of course numbers keep getting bigger. And it's impressed rapper. You know what his trillion dollars being anyways But you have to put it in the context of the economy so it makes more sense to look at a percentage of gdp and we're well over one hundred percent debt to gdp at this point Over one hundred thirty percent backs and similar cases true. Different numbers different gail For europe for japan for every major economy in the world. Though i finally saw this was acting world. War two where. The united states government had federal debt. Inexcessive one hundred percent of gdp and the the number of ways in which the world is different than nineteen or six is a much longer list in the number of ways that the same and just something pedestrian ads. What what was the foreign ownership in the us. I mean that that was owned by american who had funded the war. Effort bought treasuries and funding the us government and we had this huge demographic boom boomers We had some call or give it end Or peace dividend should say coming out of world war two and all the benefits that accrued Going from catastrophe to rebuild and in a long period of For the most part peace and looking at today we're not coming out of. Yeah we're coming into kovic but we haven't weighed out how role that which we have to rebuild the building factories and roads and do everything better. The new generation of technology. We don't have a demographic boom by the opposite and backs some countries you've but not the major western economies the ones that the huge debt loads and we have interconnectedness then just didn't exist before. So now you have a us government. That's very dependent on foreign purchases of treasury bills. Our have been for many many years to fund its its deficits and that just that interested in there anymore and that was that you can't apples and oranges looking back. Post world war two. That was not the case. The very different That up in terms of who owned it who funded those deficits and so now if you're looking at not just an ambassador or somebody managing money professionally but somebody saying well you know what would happen in the over the next ten twenty years We're i think we're all waking up to arco. We can't just blindly assume that everything is how happening in our best interest Enroll go be treated equally. That's just not the case And it is really On all on all of us that sort of thinking about what does this mean for me in terms of what's happening with currencies with The value of real assets in things like monetary all. It's important. I think people need to like you said become a little bit more aware of. How does this impact me as an individual. What do i need to do to make. Sure that my financial future Is what i wanted to be. And you know we take that conversation in a thousand different directions because everyone is different. And i'll throw in the disclaimer. This is not an investment show. We are not stock advisors. We're not going to tell you to. I will say this bilo sell high other. Go all stick with that one on your by the rumor. Sell the news. You've heard that one too but other than that you were. Everything's on your own. Or but i mean i i. It's just investment. You're right at the very few of actually lives through any real amount of inflation and we hear from our parents generation or grandparents in some cases. Oh interest rates used to be acts and my mortgage was such and such Again maybe that resemble the current time treat a bit more than coming out of world war two but an apples to oranges affect there as well Benun of us You know if you're in your thirties or forties you just don't have any experience with inflation. Baynes prices have been very stable for many years. The the inflation statistics by the governments are almost everybody. Thinks agree Misleading and understanding actual inflation. But it is. It hasn't been tamed. And now trying to rewire rain. Well what does it mean for me when interest rates Move off What does that mean dream. But what does it mean for me when in real rates or hugely native where i have An and what does that mean that you have an interest rates You may be getting paid three percents on your tenure treasury and then The actual rate of inflation might be fifteen percent and so you actually have a negative real rates and that means things are getting more expensive. And if you're sitting on one hundred dollars one hundred dollars is gonna persons last year. After year. Minutes definition of inflation that hasn't been.

"A couple of questions. So i believe it was Ravi stood sanski interviewed with carplay lifestyle. You talked about your goals. Not being monetary but to help people understand what poker really is. And i can see the connection in that goal and that statement with your dad that conversation that you had with your dad so i wanted to ask you what is poker to you. It's a it's a way it's a way of life that gives me freedom where i understand that from poker. I'm connecting with other people in making everyone better. At first i didn't understand the power. The power of poker in my life. But i have become such a better person after after. I learned poker after us Booker tactics and strategy Looking at my life and in what ways fully bay the has it made you a better person. I mean in in many many many ways I i was like i was understanding that my actions were giving me back. Exactly what what. What kind of Decisional decision making in the past. I was in a situation that was like okay. You're working this bank. I can be like a really good employees. About how can. I become like director here eat. Does that really realize that. That that really Something that can be really good a really the best in maybe i do not thrive in a poker. I understood that the best decisions. I make me they were going to give me fruitful results smear talk chrissy meritocracy exactly and i and i started to use that in the bank right away right away. I g changed the way negotiated stuff with my colleagues in the bank. So i used to have. I also have a lot of difficulty to grab a report from a woman early in the day that if i don't get the report my life will be miserable. She gives me a report by noon. I will leave the bank by champion. And if she gives the report by eight. am. I will be done by by noon. So i started playing poker refer. I started playing poker for kim to her. And i said like hey this is the deal. If you don't shoot me this you sure. Don't give me this report We're gonna late and because of these. I think i can make you look good by saint to everyone while she gives me the report on time. It's sets playing poker for our ready in.

A- game you become you become goods. Et good with

Please welcome ravi roth. High ravi i- how's it going. I i love your pillow as extra. I mean it's it's just part of the brand you know. I love that some people think of extra as like a negative. And i think it's fabulous and the astrada is f- if i'm too much of people that are there not enough for me. You're so funny. So you and i both started out in musical theatre. Musical theatre did what did you. Oh my god in new york yet. Well so i was musical theater major at syracuse university. And i thought i was going to go do broadway. That was like you know where i was headed. And then i took a left turn came out to hollywood. I was working on a tv show and the rest as they say is history and i ended up doing that but i still hope to go. I hope someday. I miss being on stage. I really do. I haven't been on stage in years. And i and i definitely miss it. So what about you yeah. I moved to new york. Sydney the broadway and gotta show kind of off the bat and then things just it just kind like i did altar boys. Ga- yeah okay. I played the awkward jew. Abraham i love it and you know Listening is full time job and there's many people that have to say yes behind the table and it just gets so exhausting that you can spend years justice and i was able to yourselves here and there but i really found like my true calling when i started getting into trouble logging. And the whole influencer world. It's just like so much more of my jam. I'm my boss. And might i get to track the globe now and i don't have to have their say yes or no because like they're the ones of the money but i still get your performance from time to time. I did a show. This past year called the letter. Harvey milk during lockdown. I probably like years ago. Dislike virtual reading of it. But i love it. I'm obsessed with it. If i could do it all the time..
Will the New Supreme Court Be Brave and Overturn Roe v Wade?
"Given the new supreme court the new. The new justices that are. Do you think ravi way roe. V wade could be overturned in the next few years. Do you think it's possible you think how would that happen. It's definitely possible that roe v wade case law is so bad even pro-abortion legal experts say it's so bad it doesn't make sense. It doesn't hold together. It's constantly shifting precedent. Why abortion is so-called. Women's right it's not. It's killing a child You know that takes intellectual clarity and courage from the supreme court justices and they're typically supreme court's really Tries to be very moderate. They don't like to do anything dramatic. They definitely don't like undo pass precedent. That's only been done a handful of times in american history right to right. The wrongs dread scott and other terrible cases like that. So i think it's gonna be a hard push for them. But i think that someone like justice. Clarence thomas has it in him. The courage the clarity the intellectual clarity and with the right leadership on the court. They should undo the damage bro. They should just say this isn't invented. Human rights to kill a child doesn't exist. The state has an interest to protect these children. The fourteenth amendment ensures equal protection under the law that should be for all humans including pre-born humans. They're not you know less than a born human Do i think they're going to do that. With this case. I think that would be a long shot. Just because they're kind of timid by nature a lot of these justices and some of them are just outrageous tonight to say cowardly. That's another correct word to you. Back the fact that they were unwilling to look at the evidence in the election fraud that was a staggering thing. Because nobody says how you have to rule but would you look at the evidence. The fact that they wouldn't even look at the evidence. It's a chilling thing really that they are already playing politics. They're already abandoning their roles as arbiters of the constitution when when they do things like that so they are human beings are capable and something like that. That's a debate. There's two sides of that debate but when it comes to human life life life. There's no debate on when life begins. I mean this is just shouldn't even be a matter. You don't get to legislate away the right to live a whole group of people. But that's what the supreme court did in one thousand nine hundred eighty needs s. It needs to be

"ravi" Discussed on Cross Examined Official Podcast
"Local churches and also any publicity and now ladies gentlemen. It goes much further than this. It's not just being in the presence of someone with whom you might appear to be engaged in some inappropriate or immoral activity now. This kind of thing can come right into your iphone can come right into your computer can come right in to your personal device so this is why we have to have accountability. There we have to have filters there or we have to give other people permission at any time to look at any of our devices and to look at any of our search engines. Any of our rousers any of our computers not only for our own good but for the good of the people that we love. Now the bible as you know is filled with examples of evil followers of god there is only one exception in that exception of course is jesus the perfect god man. Christianity is true because the perfect god. Man jesus christ died in rose from the dead and we are to place our faith not in flawed sinful people but in the senlis god man who died for us so if your faith is shaken by this i think you need to think about a little bit longer because our faith is not in. Your faith is not in your pastor. Your faith is not on your favorite teacher. Your faith is not in anybody that you might admire who claims to be a christian. Your faith is in the one flawless person who will never let you down and that is jesus of nazareth. Jesus the messiah. Jesus christ jesus the anointed one. He took all of our sins upon himself. And if you're outraged by this evil as i am the only world view that deals with it properly. The only world view that even make sense of it is christianity as mentioned before the ten things that i just off the top of my head thought about from this particular scandal that become crystal clear. Is that the truth exists. not your truth. Evil exists objective. Morality exists god exists people made in the image of god invaluable and should be respected. We have free will. Consciousness is not illusion we really have consciousness. We have a fallen nature which means susceptible to sin by sex money and power which means we have to take precautions. also sex isn't just physical it's sacred because people are sacred and also in especially sex if we get involved in it. Illicitly can lead to futile thinking and a depraved mind. So we have to put precautions. We have to have accountability. we have to follow. Jesus not man. I wish i didn't have to do this. Program ladies and gentlemen but it needed to be said there are many other folks have talked about other aspects of this. I encourage you to go look at them. As i mentioned the top of the program lord will see here next week.

Scores protest in India against arrest of climate activist
"Let's turn to India now and the single issue which is dominating politics there, the now months long protests by hundreds of thousands of the country's farmers. They are against the series of agriculture laws, which the government says will modernize the sector. The farmers say the change will leave them at the mercy of corporations by taking away the safety net of guaranteed prices for certain crops. This matters because farming employs more than 50% off the country's workforce on this is the most serious political threat to the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Opponents say the threat is leading the government to frame it as an international conspiracy. The protests are getting lots of international support. The latest development is that Delhi police have issued arrest warrants for activists. Nikita Jacob And Shantanu. Two days after the arrest of a 22 year old climate change activist the shirt Ravi she volunteers for the climate change group Fridays for future and it's thought she disseminated a toolkit. Relating to climate change to the farmers. I spoke to the founder of the group, but Green Kandari. Toolkit is a very common bomb off communication that is done by most campaigners. They make this tool kids to disseminate information. You know, it's all this by media wings as well, as you know, maybe some tweets. Some kind of information about any particular topic that you're talking about is the shed. So that just simplifies situations for people who are trying to understand or any kind of Happening like this farmers protest. You know which apparently the shark she contributed to it since a very common thing. It's just like a cool large. You know, off information. Do you know what she is being charged with? Yeah, This is sedition charges that apparently we hear from the Delhi police. But more details coming out. I mean, today there is more Information about meeting on his own link with the foundation that is considered anti national. Is it your view that this tool kit that she might have contributed to and disseminated could have anything to do with sedition? No, no, I don't. I don't think so. I mean anything that we've seen on the toolkit. Whatever information was available on the social media didn't show anything that was anti national about it. And what has been the response of her arrest within your own movement. Anger. Disappointment, and the people are disheartened Children who were part of the movement. They're calling and because the parents have asked him to back off, you know if there's a lot of field, you know, apprehension. Now it's taken a toll on the movement.

This is the daily tech news for friday january. Eighth twenty twenty. One in los angeles on tom. Merit and from studio redwood on sarah lane from studio colorado. I'm shannon morris drawn the top tech stories in cleveland. I'm lynn per nine. The show's producer. Roger j we were just talking about a cas product that makes you ice cream and ninety seconds whenever you wanted and why roger never cries wider conversation join our expanded show. Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram. It's also heavier and thicker overall but it also now starts at five hundred forty nine dollars instead of one thousand dollars. That has a thirteen point. Three inch nineteen twenty by ten eight hundred sixteen nine. Lcd touchscreen with the dual core intel seller on five twenty five you upgradable to an intel core. I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers.

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency
"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

So online advertising, , we've done real estate investing real estate residential search engine optimization. . We've gone across the board, , but essentially, what , we do is we help. .

I actually scored in the top ten percent of test takers in the United States I got into my dream schools, top schools in the nation. and. Then I said you know what?

"Away we were enabling a issue in his character we did. We failed as a church as a worldwide. Global Church. International Church Ravi Zacharias. International Ministries hold them accountable to hold them accountable. That's what we did. We allowed him to get away with with no repentance. Yep, or with partial repentance I should say well but see. Repentance. Has To involve contrition. Three you'll get. You'll get what you know. David I mean not to get too bill, but. How David responded with his son, you know after Bethsheba and killing your eye and everything. In the Sun had die. An innocent person. That's on how to lose their life. And whose credit! David never did it again. But, but there was no sacrifice. That Ravi, there was no innocent son. There was nothing you know. He didn't step like you say he didn't step down. He into that so to me. That doesn't show contrition a dozen show. I need to make this right syncing with. A zaccheus right I'm going to repay, and I'm going to end I'm going to. Give back four times. That's contrition. Yup, DOTS, contrition! That's the idea of I need to make this right, and and he never. Again from what I can see. Researching looking, he never stepped down. Fact I didn't even know that any of this had happened. I was even aware of until I until I was. When he and I was like what? I wouldn't hyper aware of of his ministry, either, but I mean it's a huge mastery, and now it's like Oh. Ain't never step down, so this is the thing that. That you have to look at because the reality is. When. We. Do that. He's only human. Argument. We use it because someone we like has done something good for us, and they've been caught in this, so we feel bad and they did something good. We're biased as a result, but if someone else did that someone they disagreed with there'd be cancelled. Yeah, right, I mean we've watched. That happened right now. With all the different hashtags on when does. Your cat was potentially revealed to be at participating white supremacist forums and and video chats groups like there was a whole dosier cat over Hashtag. Same thing happened for Wendy's when it was discovered that they've been donating to. CERTAIN CAMPAIGNS IN POLITICIANS AND Like this would have been a deal. This is a deal for people that we don't like people like Ravi Zacharias He. He has that feel of. Your grandfather reading you a bedtime story telling you in at night like He. There's a comfort his voice. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah yeah, it was, and and here's here's the point. Look. We're not just talking about this because. We we want to talk about someone who isn't here to defend himself house, dad slander. This is a warning. This all serves as a warning to all of us Tony myself anyone you as a listener, the churches a whole. This is a warning to us because the way that we've responded in treated Ravi Zacharias points to a big problem. And that bigger problem is this. What is it in our hearts that makes us act so inconsistent inconsistently and show such partiality to people. because. We do this with abusers all the time. Yeah, people do this with my pastor could not couldn't have done that. There was a guy a pastor who was. Who was convicted? Of, sexually assaulted, sexually assaulting his adopted underage daughter, several times, convicted and up to the point of his conviction, he maintained his innocence. And.

"This platform I don't know if you WANNA. Get into. You have time to get into it, but I mean they're. They're serious. The only the only one that the serious one that exists is the testimony of a girl who dated. Raviolis brother Ramesh when she was fourteen and she was, she got pregnant with his with with Ramesh. His son or baby at at I, don't know if it was the sun, but baby at sixteen and when she told Ramesh Ramesh called Ravi to talk about it. and Ravi essentially demanded that that she get an abortion because it was going to look bad on the family. Family and Ravi, this man of God, and doing all of this work, and it would come down hard if it reflected baton family, then that harms rockies, reputation and businesses well, and in fact when Ramesh then went to talk to the girls to the girl's parents about this, he invoked what Ravi had encouraged him, and said as essentially to say that this man of God. Is. This man of God has given you the okay to have to take your daughter to get an abortion because she's underage and that was what convinced. The parents to relent and actually have done. and take and take their daughter to have it done. This is a man who originally I would have categorized that in unrelated, but given that it was also done to protect whatever reputation he had was building That's where I say. No, it's connected. It's connected. It's the same kind of. unethical behavior that he that. That is meant to build or maintain a platform. No I, don't. It's not even that it's not even in a brand and and to me I. Don it's this? It's not about whether or not abortion. This isn't the separate that from the the idea is. He encouraged something that was against traditionally against the platform that he held a yes. In order to maintain that platform I mean he literally crossed as far of an epithet line there as you as you can, when it comes to betraying your own platform well, and here's the you know. When I read that story it was. It was the concept that it might. Affect his platform. An effective voice. To me, that was the. I WANNA say arrogance I want us to narcissism, not going to go, but the fear. I on my reputation is never been sullied by something. My brother or sister did. I know so many people that are amazing. People have terrible siblings. Horrible Siblings and IT'S NOT I don't blame them only them I. You are not your brother's keeper in the sense that okay. If you're literally supposed to be brothers, Kieran you don't get then. That's absurd, but like near like I don't I. Don't associate that with you and yet he for him. It was this. I have to create this persona. That everything is so perfect. and. This might tarnish me not that it would. He didn't write and. WHATEVER NOT! Right, but the fact that might that is another. was enough for him to go that far and push for an abortion and. Do, you know what I mean like. It was like wow, yeah! Mostly because you had such a powerful opportunity. To do something. Thou would've been grace related that you know what I mean instead of if you if. If the bigger issue of I need to keep this. Image intact. Rather than? This is my own. This is my household. We're going to work through this. We're going to you know this is where healing you know. and different quote unquote different time. But, that's why I. Think our generation value transparency so much in in that moment. Ravi turned a innocent girl and and her unborn child into a tool for his reputation. That's I mean that's essentially what he did was this? You are a tool to manage and maintain my reputation, and if you step out of line, I'm going to make sure that this. Actually. You want the other one because I to me. That's the main one. Another other couple ones that in in my mind again point to that same deeper issue of if you do not, I will do anything to protect my reputation YEP. here's an here's. Here's the kicker to all of that because you may wonder like. What does that have to do with me? All I did was watch youtube videos. The problem is that. Does Youtube videos came from his organization? Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. Most of them did and by allowing him to keep his platform by celebrating him by keeping by by watching those videos by by upping that viewer count by giving the Ad Revenue We allowed him. We basically enabled him to keep feeding that careful exactly. Like, we enabled to him as this is why I just this is why when I discovered I just stopped interacting with his stuff. I I don't think I've brought him up on the show before, but you know I know I've talked about him before. In sermons, talks are different things, and now I'm like Oh shoot I wish I'd and there's a problem in that that there's a there's an ethical kind of gray area that I run into an even talking about stuff like this, because in in so talking about people who may not have known about any of this are now gonNa go watch. Or whatever and check this out and so there's a risk there but I in order the information is more important the net in my in my mind, but the, but the reality is us, celebrating him regardless of alive or.

"The reason why we're doing this will become clear as we as we move forward so essentially. The short of it is sixteen minutes into the episode Ravi. Zacharias has been caught repeatedly lying about his education, his academic credentials and his previous work experience as a professor or just as an academic scholar in general. Yeah, yeah, yeah, he's done so in books. He's done so in live presentations. He's done it in marketing materials, and now you can. You can counter some of that by. By saying well that was you know publishers or others who may have you know other people who are interacting with his with his work like that are that are paid to create things to represent him. You know he's not the one designing his own posters and putting de Typing in rags. Zachariah varietes or Dr. Ravi, Zacharias there's part of the problem. Is He was claiming? He was claiming that title with honorary degrees. Rather than any actual degree he was, he was making clear, and it had gone so far as he was making claims that he studied at Cambridge and in and Oxford. And Cambridge. He studied Cambridge maybe it was oxygen. Now I might be confusing. The to Cambridge was the one the our this well. He? He said that he studied in the philosophy department studied under the professors and and under a very specific professor in nine hundred ninety I. Don't remember the guy's name like a quantum physics. Yeah and he. Turns out that professor didn't even teach there in one thousand, nine hundred, and not only that Cambridge actually came out and said we don't even have record of him. Being a student here, he audited a single class. At Cambridge. That's what he did, but when you go there and say when you go up on stage and say when I was studying at Cambridge under some of the most prestigious professors in their fields. And under the prestigious philosophy department when I studied at southern. You know or I. You know I you know. I went to southern the the assumption is that southern was the school that I attended fully. I enrolled graduated from I completed my education at. He is very very much relying on that to to mislead people into thinking that he had done something that he hadn't He had also said that he worked as a professor that taught classes as a guest lecturer all as a lecturer and all of that and game was like. Yeah, we also don't have any record of him ever being an employee here. Like Yeah Cambridge. Themselves ever said that. So all the when I say the receipts are here. The receipts are here. We're not saying like. Oh, we couldn't find any like they've outright said No. And? The Ravi Zacharias has also apologized for those claims. And he admitted the truth. He admitted that he he had fabricated them or that he had misrepresented himself, and then he and he pledged to stop doing that and for many that was enough, unfortunately for the position that he holds in for the work, he was doing and specifically with the ethics of the platform that he built. Just, admitting to that apologizing for it, I don't think are enough. and. I think it's worth us. Kind of getting into. Why yeah an entire about? Why does important so the name of the I've been looking at because I know. I saw the name of it. The name the Cambridge fresher that he says he studied under withdrawn poking horn. That's what it was P.. O. L. K. I. N., G., H., O., R., N. E. and if that isn't a British name. I do not know what is. And so and it turned out that like. This guy he he liked by the time he studied under him. Like took a philosophy classroom. He, he wasn't teaching physics anymore. He was teaching theology. And then it was like one class. It was like. A Thing yes, it was like a seminar thing. It wasn't even like full-on Semester Long. You gotTA. Research Paper Etcetera, class so yeah, it's one of those. It's one of those ones that's like this. This is true. So why? Let's get into the White House the the way. Yeah, so this is a problem because this isn't a man who did bad things that were just unrelated to his ministry. And we're not talking about those things. There are those things this is a man who's transgressions were done specifically in order to build that build the platform that that we are celebrating him for. He isn't a human who made mistakes. He's a man who made knowingly unethical ethical decisions in order to build his career. And establish further credibility like that's what he did. And not only that there were no significant consequences for his actions, he didn't lose the platform that his lies and misdirection helped build. He didn't lose anything. Other than I. Guess some time writing out an apology. Well because here's the thing when you claim to have studied at Cambridge. Your and this is the point of going to a prestigious university. Your words hold gravitas now they hold way. Goes to Harvard and says when when I'm talking about. For instance why Christians shouldn't or how they should respond to homosexuals and I say oh, because science this this and that right? And I have the weight of Cambridge. Now you should still be a critical thinker, even if it's like people go to her and everything. They're still it. It's like there's still. A Tony Because Jerry Chief Idiots. Chief among idiot actually like just because somebody goes somewhere doesn't automatically mean that they are someone who should be listened to.

"I WANNA say pop Christian radio I'll say Christian radio and he's just mentioned a lot. And then on twitter I know a few people that I followed her Christian leaders. that they also you know talk about him, but I've never really. Heard him or listen to him or watch videos I went through a few of his books. I know what they're about, but I've. Yeah, he's not someone like affected me directly, versus like say had sets her a Oh It's Steve Francis Chant. Stephen Chen Francis Chan Stephen Fertig. really know that I would be able to reference but Ravi it from from what I understand is like older now I will say he actually did receive criticism to for not doing enough in the evangelism department right, but I actually believe that there's a real significance in doing work for those who already. Believers like we wouldn't exist if that wasn't the case. None of what I would exist if that wasn't the case, so. There's nothing wrong with apologists apologetic apologized. There's also nothing wrong with politics. Late to apologize. no, but like that. That's more I think we're his were his. Specialty would be and there's another I think there's a there's a value in that especially in the in the idea of discipleship and trying to be a Christian I'm not going to say a world that is against you, but. In finding your own reasons for Christianity because. There isn't a lot of evidence. I mean there is historically like you can't say that Jesus didn't exist as a person. As a real human being. He really did but to say that he's. Really God. You know you that that there's a lot of you have to have your own personal journey on that so I think there's a place for it, but yeah, he's not really. He's not really evangelist. Yeah, exactly so. With him, having recently died I decided to put off doing anything about this just to kind of let that all settle a bit. And now the world is currently focused on other things entirely so maybe too long, but here's. I'm going to be frank here and just saying this I'm not trying to deny any of the positive impact that he's had on the countless people that have watched videos read. His books interacted with his content like that's not what we're here to do. We're not denying any of the good that he did. However I think there's a there's a high risk of a lot of a lot of us letting personal feelings, regarding that positive impact cloud our judgment. In how we are remembering and receiving him. Everything that I'm that we're going to say this episode. I would've said two years ago had I realized that it was I'd known about all of this two years ago, but I didn't I didn't realize just how widespread his reach really had been in that fashion. Didn't we talk about this on one of our? I don't think so. Maybe we I'm like I don't think so. I have no idea. Honestly we've. We're over one hundred episodes. Remember every passing reference. It would've have been early. I generally don't remember, but this isn't. He's dead. He's not here to defend himself, but everything that we are everything that we're talking about today. is something that essentially he's already. He had already responded to so for the most part. There's not really this isn't. This isn't going after a man who can't defend himself This is actually more about accountability, and this is about us as as those who've been gauge with his content, those who are looking to leaders and teachers who are authority figures and people we trust. This is about how we interact with them. How we how we build them up and how we treat them, I think that. I think that in the way that we treated Ravi. We are setting a dangerous precedent regarding Christian celebrity culture, and we are demonstrating what we are willing to look past. Just because someone was good at their job after they did something terrible. And To be even more clear on this I. Don't really care in the context of this about the other non ministry related criticisms that he that he's received right I care about them in so far as they happened, and I believe that they happened and I don't like. It's a testament to character, but it's not really yes, focusing on we'll get into why. In a minute, but we are dealing with is the transgressions that Ravi committed that were specifically done to build the platform that we now revere him for. That's what we're talking about today. so there's links to this stuff There's even links to a small There's a small atheist channel that I found that did a very very short kind of super cut of all of the different times that Ravi. Zacharias lied about the following. Literally under two minutes of straight to the point. And this is stuff that is very provable. Very demonstrate like the receipts are here. Dan The receipts have always been here. So this isn't this isn't like. Oh, you're just conjecturing, or you're just speculating now. These this actually happened again likely said. This is a like. We hate his theology. Therefore, we're going to like. Neither of US really knew. About it until we found out like a response. From people when he did pass away. Three years ago or two years, but I'm saying like. We didn't really you know what I mean like. This isn't a personal. Held a grudge against him and Like there are other I'm going to be stopped. Found Frank like there are. Certain misters out there. That I have a shoulder about and if you know me I, have if you if you known me for more than a month, I've probably mentioned at least two or three of these names to at once. I'm very very loud and vocal about that so. Like this is one of those guys like it's not one of the ones that like. Yeah. Here's why it's bad like I really didn't understand the scope of this until we started researching so yeah, this isn't a personal ties. Isn't like going after like this is this is..

I mean I was literally eight hours old in ours. Am if he trusted me with that answer. Well it was a perfect answer and I pray that that young man who got that answer did pursue the truth and that acts seventeen passage. You brought up Abdou where Paul says that God has preordained where people should live so that people will reach out and find him. I think answers a lot of questions with regard to the question. What about those? Who have never heard any of those questions. Which by the way our moral questions you know. They're basically implying that God is somehow immoral if he doesn't get his gospel to every living person and I've heard Dr William Lane. Craig say well it could be that people who never hear the Gospel wouldn't have believed it anyway and that's certainly possible that God has so pre- preordained where people live that. Even those who never hear the Gospel as they had heard the gospel would they wouldn't have believed in it anyway but that was a very astute that you gave your job interview. Went exceedingly well that day and by the way I need to. I need to ask people right now. As soon as this podcast is over you need to go to ours dot org and you also need to go to their youtube channel because you will see so many videos from the college campus and from churches. Where both Ravi Abdou and Vince fatale and others are answering questions and Abdu? I remember an answer. You gave your sharing the stage. I think with Ravi with John Lennox and yourself and maybe one other person and question came. That was so difficult it was like a three prong question about. I want to say it was about women in the church the LGBTQ question. And why did God kill the Canaanites and you had like just a few minutes to answer or the question came to everybody and Robbie just turned to you and said Abdu you got this and right after the break. We'll maybe give a short answer to that because it was a brilliant answer and folks you can see the answer as I say if you go to. The Arzi am Youtube Channel. There are several videos up there that you will see. Ravi and his brilliant but by the way we're coming up to the break here one of the things that I I always tell people about Ravi one of the great insights that that I learned from him was whenever you're answering a question you need to remember that you're really answering a person if you just jump into some wrote answer and you're not trying to discover why that person is asking the question it can be a disaster in. Ravi was so good at that. Abdou she was excellent at it and that That's fence which you the open for the before she answers a question he is giving a verbal hug to the plow. Painted an amazing. We're talking to Abdu Mary. His latest book written with Ravi Zacharias find ways called seeing Jesus from the East. We're having a bit of a tribute to Ravi today.

Please such berm so by this but it's all about that is greetings and the what separates a good show from a great show and lock the episode for Thanksgiving. We had Lena who was was undertaking. A project at the time and she had told his story to some of the people executives and they're like yeah. You can just ride it. I don't need to be involuntarily ability to write this completely involved in this. Just stick. The rains already told you every pretty much everything and it's good as was like no. It has to be you that does this because this is from your point of view. There's only so much we can do with it. You take it to the extra level and our. That's what missing generally on a all of these shows where we watch and it so like one-sided and that's exactly it because as well as well meaning as it is sometimes sometimes you just need the people that telling the story is to actually have that frame of reference and have that life experience as well. Because you know you need people to be able to resume is an. And if I can digress for a second You know if if you haven't listened to the show before I knew Francois I am of talkative talkative. Necessity my parents had told him but I am the true Blue Ozzy like I was born in Australia. That's why I've got. This BARAGAN is begging accent. May May your accent just talking talking fate. Katie you know like so. I grew up in a country where you know on TV V. At least it was a lot of like white people so I was just used to watching things. I just had a low white people in but you know where I grew up in western Sydney. And if you've ever been to western Sydney it is a melting pot right like they're all different nationalities they but that was never really reflected in the TV even like even now in Australia. It's slowly becoming that and I guess it's just time as well but I what I really loved when I went to Kenya. Nia you say. Kenya can be just in commercials just in like just because you know what I mean. It's not a specific reason why can injure on the TV right and obviously that make sense. Because it's your country but like I didn't get to have that growing up like Lou Carpenter was not my daddy. We love a good look up into the oh Alf. Stewart was not my Daddy That's a herman away in a neighbor's reference. If you guys have watched it but it was I. I was just used to you and accepting that. I'm going to watch something but it's not really garner. Reflect my experience. You know what I mean. And it's nice to now be able to delve into a world where okay. So I'm I'm not Indian but I can resonate with some of the things that are being presented. So essentially the sort of a migrant perspective it like covers is a lot of ground regardless of what kind of background your it can reasonably to most of the stains especially if you come from that sort of point of view so it. Just let's make sense so let's stay with this. This was actually one of the themes but it was a bit further down the list. Let's stay with it now This is actually covered in one of the episodes. Eh Dev and his friend Ravi go for an audition for short and they both tested well and you know they were really a great And then eventually throughout the episode you have like the top man like the top man who happens to be a white man As the executive and you know there's all of that rhetoric of you know you can only have one right and it actually. The reason why I became such a controversy is because he said through the through an email web channel email email about Cari o some flavoring or something like you. Don't carry favor and that's like what the fuck you know what I mean A.. And so that became the catalyst for this particular episode but a lot of the comments that were made throughout the episode which. I'm sure it's been spun off his own experiences is you can only only have one of them because if you have to. It's going to look like for Indian people only which was quite an interesting comment to make and I like you know? We hear that that sort of rhetoric whether it's right whether it's wrong but what was frustrating. Was He's actually the head of the shooter. So yes that might be the case. Yes people might not be ready but you actually are at the helm of change you can actually if you want to not force people but offer people that new you sort of experience so things that people would hide behind. He couldn't because he could actually make that change. 'cause essentially the other puppeteers and whatever they do start incriminating regardless of whatever pushback they get that can still sort of the trend and make. It seem as if we're trying to represent also Sacha series it just monitoring or whatever there's different pilots across the board you're catering to a whole vast of people that needs to be represented it on TV. And it's only fair to do that and I thought it was quite interesting. Maybe it's just a now viewing experience. There is a lot of and our focus on representations like African Americans not to say that that's been fully achieved but there is a lot of focus on that and even just the Asians broadly like with crazy occasions. Fresh off the bird You know that sort of thing but there there isn't a lot of talk about like Indians begins in particular so I really enjoyed that particular viewpoint as well. I do take qualms with devs debt because is in one of the episodes. The religion focused sort of episode. He said there's no Indian models and I take qualms with that see Dev Patel plays he does everything how Di di you can do everything? And I'm glad that we haven't covered anything of his his work on amazing hotel. Mumbai recently knows very good But yeah so like they talk about like representation and that sort of thing so just going back to that particular episode. It's funny because you have Dev and also Ravi talking about how it just can't happen. You know the executives saying there's no way you can have you know at least two Indian people in the same and not be funny but what you had in. That scene was Dev Ravi and also the Mumbai Muscle having a friends esque tied type of exchange. So it was it was. It wasn't really subtle but it was that way of saying. Hey we can do it. We're doing it. What what more can you say right? So it was quite nice to be able to explore that Sir It's it's nice to see people being able to tell their stories and also actually actually actually also in that saying There were talking about how they will white actors even recently a social network playing Indian Indian sort of characters. I think it was was a short circuit to issues like you too and I think I think that's like the big bombshell like people just didn't realize that was a white actor so that became kind of like the running joke of the show so when he was on talking to Ravi about it rob like hang on a second is Mindy Kaeling even unreal. I it's one of the revelations that changed Rav his point of view because before that it was okay to do the oxen's that he was asked to do but after it was revealed to him. That was actually guys. I know me I'm not taking mark people back with this. You can have Indian cabdriver. Who just doesn't have the sort of de Pavia Cheson? Yeah but I also like I don't know how much you want to spend time on this but I also feel like people that do choose to do the accent..
