"My hands are moving a lot. And that's how i talk. That's how i that's how my mind processes. That's how i think that's that allows me to orient. My thoughts were other. People may not do that. And so i know. In some cultures dot can be considered considered rude and that can be considered inappropriate. So there's lots of things that one has to be aware of when they interact. So i love the fact that not only we're looking at one's personality type but the acculturation aspect of that. If how do. I connect with someone else so not we as a culture could be from a country but a culture can also be the family culture. Myfm culture may be different in your family culture or the people who live next to me. And then that can that can be my. Maybe my town's cultures different The my states cultures different my country so Moves itself out so not only. Do we have to look at how we look at the world in our culture but the of the other person's culture and be aware that their culture is just as wonderful and beautiful as mine may be different and so that is really reading the room if you will and the nuances of how to interact with people in a healthy effectively. Excellent yeah absolutely. Culture is a group group phenomenon. So whatever there is a group they will be a culture so when you compare nations the nation culture than organization culture family cultures. Yes absolutely what. I was thinking about this as we were talking. I really liked the fact that your book it comes from. Obviously you're the fact that your book comes from a place of all your research all the all the stuff that you've done and it it combines my world your world and everyone else's world together to really understand that everybody can understand this. Anybody can do this. Meaning that can learn this. Rather and so. When you learn it you'll see the efficacy of your conversations as the efficacy of your interactions and efficacy..

"So if i'm like oh well they're saying this about me. Well w reflect on that. Do i think that's true. Is that true. And so that's i think at a time of self reflection to say. I thought this is thought. I was really powerful and strong in my in who i am but if i'm allowing someone else to trigger me let me take a moment to do self-reflection say what do i really believe about myself. Because at the end the forefront of things the the periphery of the superficial aspect of it. We know who are but if there's something within us we haven't really looked at that enough to say wait a minute. That doesn't really resonate with me. So if i love someone else to trigger me. Navy that's my own inability to be as introspective not inability but my the blankets at the blind spot to be introspective as could be absolutely and the management of ego. So it's it's directly link with self esteem and confidence so if someone has triggered that try to trigger that it's my self esteem and my confidence should tell me. I know i'm better than that. I don't need to get involved in that petty conversation. So that confident yes. You can say all believe what you want. I know who i am. And i'm better than this. I don't need. You cannot drag me into where you are. So i will behave as i wants me to behave and yeah i don't get perturbed by if you are as a bad thing about me because i know i am and what i am exactly another. I think that's so important because we often. In many cases we know who we are but another thing like i said blind spots are things people can say in a rage us in so that that is something just whatever level people out in their life. Nobody could control us unless we allow them to control us. I want to transition into the myers briggs. Tell people more about that interested to hear. What your your philosophy your thoughts well. buys vix Type in as one of the tools. It's not the only several tools. And i have used that in my book as Because we had to choose one but there are several others The the before we do that if he if we were to imagine our existence in pyramid or triangle Base of eternal. It's universal every human being is bonded. Uso instinct so we all got hungry. Thirsty had emotions. We have all those things of that. Is you know as everyone has it. and then the in the middle It's cultural things so that's learnt so let so people around me practices around me. That is cultural and i learned and that can be Unlearn all learn differently so that's culture and then the are the top of the pyramid..

"Make sure that we aligned. Okay this is what i want to achieve and make sure that we stay on track the other thing. I think it's very important to add here. sometimes we have to disassociate of the behavior With us so for example. I'm not angry. That is an anger in me. So once i start feeling that way a one stop train my brain. I'm not angry. There is an uninvited anger. That has Infiltrated in me. So once i say anger is not me it just in me so i need to take it out. So i'm a neutral person i can be. Emotions comes and goes so once. We are aware of our emotions and the triggers at the that brought those emotion inside me then we are when we know how to handle and manage them. Yes i want to go back to the whole thing. When it comes to vulnerability how can you can a person. So have an ego and a demonstrate ego but also demonstrate vulnerability is there. Is there absolutely there is at everything in life has to have balance but the main thing is that we don't give impression to our counterparts that i'm anyway or shape perform better than them. Because that's that's a put the my counterpart into defensive mode and the eagle triggers at some point and once we are at level field. Then it's a rational conversation and then we can learn from each other. I'll give an example. I have covered that in my book. at that time of a few years ago my daughter was five. At that point we are sitting together and she came and she just gave a comment and she said daddy. You look fat and ugly. And i looked at her and we all smiled and i kept smiling after that and then subsequent do that comment. I start reflecting why i didn't feel Threatened why didn't feel enrage she has those words. If by anyone in the world including my life or anyone it would have triggered my ego..

"Infallible. And i don't project myself that i know it all and the prime objective of this book is that the mistakes that i had made People learn from them and then try to not make those mistakes. And so the whole idea. As i'm sure you will talk about it and people are talking about leading with wonder ability so when you when you When you show your wonderful sight to people you become relatable so people say I know i like this. Because i can see myself making the same mistake or i have made those mistakes. So the whole idea of The idea of this book and communication is be authentic. I not infallible. I don't claim that.

And then you talk about that you talk about the ego strength you talk about interpersonal effectiveness. I want to go through each of those so we have. We have probably about twenty fifty minutes to be able to talk about this thing. So i want to really focus on those. Because there's so much that your book talks about an. I don't want to minimize it because there's like so much meat in there that anyone reads. This is going to be blown away because you've done so much work of course as as auditor you've had your your homework and then some let's talk about the ego shanks..

Welcome to life allergy. Thank you for having. I looking forward to this. You reached out to my website and wanted to be on my show. So thank you for listening to my show. But i was really intrigued. Because an auditor many people don't know that. And so i really want to arm excited rather about the show because i will bring psychology together in. Bring your experience together to help. People really understand how to enact with other people. So what is an auditor ball finds. Full that oppourtunity. The auditor can be used in different. Different context primarily a lot of time. People associate auditing with financial auditing. But i personally. I'm in medical device regulation so my job as an auditor we Go to medical device manufacturer and then we assess and make sure the device that making They meet the regulations. And they're safe to use so my job intrinsically is to go and make sure the Dwi safety isn't tactful. They come in to market.

My dad told me that we judge others by their behaviors. But we judge ourselves by our intentions. Often we have great intentions. We want to help people but sometimes our behavior doesn't necessarily demonstrate that. I remember when i first started psychology every day for six months. I did a video on youtube. And i practice my craft. The funny thing was was so often. I thought that i was showing kindness or showing joy or other emotions. But when i saw myself on camera i realized i didn't really demonstrate what i was feeling so thankfully i was able to practice at over time and hopefully now people understand my emotions much better than before that. It's the same type of thing with you. I'm sure you're very effective with communicating with your words but if your body language doesn't demonstrate that he might be getting a different response than you intended one of the biggest things i do. Tell people is to look at yourself while you're talking for example. If you need to speak with your boss about something really important practice it in the mirror before you go to work or practice it. Once you've parked in the mirror of your car because more often you can be confidence that your facial expressions are equal to what your words are saying. Then you know you're communicating effectively. The thing is we communicate but often are communication isn't as effective as we think for example. If you say something and someone responds in a negative way doesn't necessarily mean you didn't convey yourself appropriately. It just simply means. There was a disconnect between what you're trying to convey with the other person understood and psychology. There are fifteen common thinking errors. The thinking here is essentially like a lens. We use that filters what was said for example. If someone always has to be right. That is considered a thinking they're psychology. We teach that whatever you perceive to be true in other words what you think about determines what you feel what you feel determines how you respond so with one of these comments thinking errors if someone uses one of them. That is where the disconnect happens..

It seems counter intuitive For any young person to be lonely. That's when you're in school that's when you're doing all kinds of things. Why do you suppose they think of themselves as lonely well. They are so connected technology with technology digitally but they have no real heart connections in. That's the problem. The grandson. We'll tell you you know. We have lots of connections but no real relationships. And i think that's the thing that's missing his relationship. I think it needs to be said over and over but this is a good place to start. There's something inherently one dimensional or at least shallow about social media. You're really communicating with much depth. And you've just said it the connection it. It's really a tenuous connection. It's tremendously superficial. It's almost designed to be superficial. But i've never really thought about how if you get a lot of that eventually.

Light at the End of the Tunnelfor Air Travel?
"While they have been quite a lot of new developments over the past fortnight in terms of international travel some bad but also some good in summary getting back to australia over the next couple of months unfortunately looks like it could be hotter than ever but this finally light at the end of the tunnel with talk now of opening up. Australia's international borders at least for some states by the end of this year. There's been a lot to take in so joining me now. To dissect it all is travel agent and regular guest on this podcast. Allan lamb from netwave. Trevor woke mellon so back in july listeners. Might remember the sterling government javier. The number of passengers allowed to arrive each week into each of the different states and so the arrival caps before july would there were three thousand spots a week into sydney melbourne and brisbane with age taking in one thousand people and perth and adelaide were taking in five hundred thirty passengers. H week bought from july when the government half those caps that reduced And the so. The number of passengers allowed to come in on commercial. Flights into sydney was leave. One thousand five hundred a week. Melbourne brisbane dropped down to five hundred passengers. Awake and perth adelaide. Down to only two hundred sixty five eighty per week. The impact of that was already quite devastating but that was only supposed to be until the end of august. Sadly last week the australian government extended those halved arrived caps until now the end of october and that in fact they didn't even have the courtesy of announcing this publicly. What they did is they just informed the airlines and the airlines have now had to stop dumping twenty seven thousand. People in total of flights. Were booked on over the next two months ellen. What does this mean overall in terms of flights to australia. Unfortunately we've seen a lot of flights get canceled. Four raza timber and in some cases. The of started cancelling fraud type as well as even that reduction kept now in places where the toyota That means that a little flat to being played cancelled and the can't cancelled innocence operating That means is. I know your passengers being carried and the cap is now low at two hundred sixty five seeing some of these carry about ten passengers and often the majority of these business plus fortunately with adelaide is not as many airlines flying in. So because it's mainly qatar airways flying they tend to be taking a hard number sir about thirty forty passes per week into add

It's not a name that came out of nowhere. There's really important history. Can you talk about that a little bit. I sure mankind comes from our founder named alfred mann and now man was a true innovator he started i think seventeen companies and everything from you know to cook lawyer. Implants to the pacemaker To insulin pumps that many of us know. Today's medtronic used to be called mini. Med and now man built on pumps over the eighties nineties and was very successful and sold that company to medtronic and then he took literally one billion dollars of his own money and invested in mankind and he had put this coming together Through three companies the on the technology to make a freezer would was was really combination of companies. And the reason he was so dedicated as he saw in the market which we now see today on c. gm was that the variability in mealtime control was so high and fluctuations. You see the influence takes about an hour and a half to kick in. And it's hard to get real time control if you can't get a fast acting insulin. And so he stood up to make a real thing. Insulin so president inhaled Monarch and that was really what the magic was in our technology making a dry powder was was if you heard different face cream. We have basically large dob machines and our our factory reverie free dry the particles to make a freezer and Under stabilized monomer form. So when you're inhaling you're inhaling informed that soon as it's in your blood active for when you inject it has its heck summer and has the breakdown about forty five minutes. And that's how you can make it stabilize in injectable form But it has to break down and then starts working. And that's why there's always dislike effect between you know we see jekyll.

The british had tried and failed to establish a protectorate over the nation. Meanwhile russia had recently vacated its stakes after their defeat in world war one. The newest foreign party to take an interest was the united states and they mainly wanted one thing oil. They pressured the iranian government into allowing oil tycoons to start drilling into the land when robert embryo was killed at the hands of an angry mob. All the foreign actors in the country started pointing fingers at each other. Tehran newspapers and russian authorities blamed the british for inciting muslims into a frenzy. Others blamed the russians who had expelled embry from moscow after he defended his anticommunist beliefs fellow american spy marguerite harrison who recently departed the near east while posing as a filmmaker claimed international intrigue was to blame but above all according to margarite. Embree was to blame for his own death. He had knowingly entered a dangerous situation marguerite also claimed embry made a serious error by fleeing the initial attack at the shrine. According to iranian custom running away proved he was guilty of sabotaging the site. If he had stayed the people would have merely punished him but not killed him.

Oldest Texas Electricity Co-Op Goes Bust After $2 Billion Bill
"11 bankruptcy protection today. Citing they said a nearly $2 billion bill from the state's electricity grid operator following the storm. Marketplaces and you'll reports. Those things can happen when you let the market dictate prices on a grid that's not connected to the rest of the country. Raza's Electric is a cooperative that pays the grid operator to get electricity to hundreds of thousands of Texans. The grid operator is called ERCOT there like a toll road for the electricity system. Costas America teaches environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon, he says in the February deep freeze, brasses Electric ran up bills many times higher than they normally be. The prices are allowed through the Texas Electricity system to rise when demand is really high, and supply is low. That's kind of the theory of all this the theory behind the largely deregulated market, a system that many are now questioning. David Spence teaches energy law of the University of Texas, he says. In fairness, I don't know that anyone ever anticipated an event like this when they were designing that system. Now, this seems like a black swan event in that sense, But a similar event did hit Texas 10 years ago, and lawmakers decided not to winterize Emily Groubert and George Attack says there's an opportunity again to rethink infrastructure more generally. I think we need to be really, really thoughtful about when it is actually logical to spend a little bit more money here to make sure that these systems actually do what we want them to do for the next several decades. Brasses Electric said before the freeze, it was financially robust. Its bankruptcy family could be an ominous sign.

It's two thousand seventeen not long after you. And i met at a conference off of union square san francisco. I cannot remember the name of the conference or the hotel. The park central hotel But you'd made a really interesting presentation there. I wish i still remember parts of it today. So that's four years later. So what about about four years. Bow for years.

Who might not be familiar with you. Why don't we start with. Why don't we start with your background a little bit. And i think probably the academic background is a start unless you want to start before that so i think it's a reasonable place to to start so i am a phd in linguistics for my for my crimes And i got into linguistics physically. Because i actually going back and reading like Application materials grad school while ago and They were specifically about how i wanted to help. People build language technology. That really worked for everybody in helped make the world. A better place idealist. I can. I had like a lot of ideas. About how hollywood technology would make the road better so which i still think i still hold another one. And at that point i was really into speech and speech perception production from a human standpoint. So how humans perceive speech how to humans understand things And i realized that. I was working on this sort of designed experiments with an eye towards informing automatic speech recognition systems that people who are working on an automatic speech recognition natural language processing automatic speech recognition. We're not going to conferences. And we're not really reading the papers. Don't resident to shift more and more and more into natural. Language processing into more computational approaches In my dissertation i had a big be role experimental component big valuation component. And then also. I built up machine.

How Lowriders Were A Protest Against White Supremacy
"The low rider movement was also political as a journalist of the nineteen seventies wrote quote. Low writing culture expresses the refusal of young chicano american to be anglicized. Never been a clear case of the automobile being used as an ethnic statement when mexican-americans drove low riders. They're both claiming their identity. And refusing to become invisible hassled by cops pigeonholed by the media and profiled by the general public. There is often a cost but the reward as it is so often in car culture was freedom. The history of low riding is as old as the history of los angeles car culture itself. If you've been to la or even if you haven't you're probably aware that it's a spread out city of wide boulevards and busy highways. You pretty much need a car to get around. And that's been the case for over a century of the city's history as early as the nineteen twenties. The city had an auto ownership rate of one car for every two point. Two five people compare that to the national average at the time which was one car for every seven people and it's because the tire companies paid to have the public transit yet. They show it in the documentary roger rabbit. It's very enticing to say that there is you know why conspiracy there probably was. There is definitely benefit for certain parties to shut it down but also people also liked having their own cars. So is a mix of things almost as soon as cars got into the hands of angelenos. Enterprising owners dissatisfied with stock sameness of cars like the ford model. A or the chrysler fifty eight quickly got into modifying them and stripping. Wait to create hot rods. Which back in the day were known as hop ups or cow jobs. I'm so glad that word has died out. What is a gal. I've idea let's bring that back. Yeah we got bring back. Dow job algi. That's so funny. My girlfriend said no more gal job. So i get the ones i have running cow job. My girlfriend says i gotta get a real job. Get rid of all my gal jobs. Cow jobs okay. So i found an an inch of blog post on jalopy journal dot com talking about the term gal job and just like hopped up or souped up right how that came from like racehorse giving racehorses like pills pills or drugs to improve their performance gal was also a nickname for like drugs as well So you're gone up your horse. The gow job got it and yeah while the initial focus was on speed some maters quickly became interested in how far they could push the envelope and other ways the great depression of the nineteen thirties was an added incentive for kearns iast to fix up and modify older cars rather than buying the latest and greatest the predominant car culture was creating hot rods. But there's a counterculture developing especially among the mexican american community that was a direct reaction to the dominant mostly white rod. Seen at first it wasn't known as low writing. It was just lowering your car. Also popular was chopping or lowering the roof of the car. Decorating vehicle's exterior with designs and replacing stock interior components with plush luxury substitutes. Still the term low rider hadn't yet been coined in the thirties. The clear predecessor of low rider history in the chicano community was a co style. A slang word that roughly translates to punk or troublemaker. But you goes were known for wearing zoot suits slipping their hair back and duck tales a distinctive pattern of slang and in association with swing in jazz. Music is so cool. I watched like archival footage of and they're just like i wish i could pull that style off. My grandpa had zoot suit back in the day. I wish that you are the same like personality. You had the same job hobbies but you just were every day. I'm like accidentally slamming the coattails of my zoot suit in my impreza. Guys look pretty cool. Still pacheco's weren't necessarily associated with a specific style of automobile wasn't until the fifties that mexican american culture started to really embrace the low rider aesthetic in the nineteen fifties. Many white hot-rodders chose to raise their car turning away from the sleek look that had been popular before the war in the words of chicano artists gabriel gibson. White drivers quote went into hot rods and fast cars. They would raise their cars. These big all motors these big trucks but the raza for the race says now i want to do the opposite on a nice and slow slow and low. The one thousand nine hundred fifty saw the true emergence of low rider culture especially in los angeles in the postwar period. Los angeles was a hub for american auto manufacturing. Second only to detroit with ford chrysler and general motors. All operating assembly plants in the area matching if that was still true. That'd be cool. Yeah bill alice. Ten cities ton is stan. Low rider culture. You have to understand. The history of los angeles and it's mexican population originally founded as a spanish mission to spread catholicism in the seventeen hundreds by the eighteen hundreds it had evolved into a forming and ranching up while the land owners were initially of spanish and mexican descent by the eighteen fifties white americans began to dominate. Los angeles is economy and governments prize surprise. Although mexican americans. And even chinese immigrants outnumbered white americans white angelenos still held most of the political power in the city while the white neighborhoods of los angeles boomed tocado in hispanic populations were increasingly regulated to urban ghettos or barrios especially in the east los angeles area away from the pacific ocean and the downtown core at first these neighborhoods were little more than shantytowns but after world war two the population of l. a. began to explode. The city had one of the largest populations of mexican people living anywhere in the world including mexico. Thousands of mexican americans who had served in the war returned or moved to los angeles and with the cash stipend provided by the gi bill. Many of these vets had the income to afford a car of course despite the improved economic times mexican american communities were still far from the luxury of beverly hills or the film set glamour of hollywood. I'd say hollywood is trying to say that convincingly knowing that hollywood is not very glamorous. Yeah i'm sure back in the day it was but the thing i find funny in interesting seeing like torres families like german tourists in like they're blonde hair and jean shorts like walking around hollywood so confused. Yeah well this is a this place full of like forty dollars suit stores and like weird pizza places. If you're coming to la don't go to hollywood. It's pretty bad. Plus all the studios are like in culver. All the studio sony's in color but most of them are in north hollywood. With their means of expression limited. Low riders became an important symbol of personal expression. Freedom and cultural independence
2021 Voice AI Predictions with Thadani, Tingiris, Stapleton, and Fields
"Welcome back to the voice about podcast. Worse okay so we're gonna get your prediction is why don't you just tell who rain agency and what you do. Short so ran is an agency that sales voice assistant experiences for large companies. We work with companies like nike nestle. Flat rock in the win and we really help them design and build conversational experiences. That are going to drive business. Value so You know some our collaborations in work have been with google on. Abc mouse and we also recently built a experience for the win hotel. Las vegas where we implemented a voice enabled concierge in their hotel rooms Slept on the work that we do. That's awesome well. I shouldn't have to talk about some of these projects you've been doing so we'll figure out an appropriate time for that. Because i'm i'm interested in what's going on with the win. They were an early adherent to voice. I know they've continued to invest. So that's a good example but today's focus is on what we should expect to the voice. Ai industry over the next year and to summarize you're looking at the rise of owned some people call them cost them some people call them branded voice assistance. Why don't you describe what that is to you and why you think that that's going to come to pass. Yes so You know. I think we've all been seeing. Rain has been very bullish on this space of own voice assistance. So these are you. Can think of america's erica or walmer. Ask sam so rather than relying on the army. Assistant landforms forms like alexa. Google assistant like some of these brands have in the past. They're building their own ranted. Ai assistance That sit on their own channels. They more control over the user experience in the data that comes out of those experiences and the reason that we've been particularly bullish on this in our twenty twenty one. Prediction is just based on a lot of the antitrust regulation conversation. That's been happening over the past year. in in our view at rain there has been unprecedented. Scrutiny of tat as a whole. It's really the first time that you know. Government leaders across both sides of the aisle are taking a vested interest in antitrust topics. Actually trying to understand them and understand that they're asking. There's a lot of reason to believe that they tech companies may not look like they do right now in twelve to eighteen months in q. Add on top of that. What's been happening just past week with twitter and amazon apple after some recent events is just more ammunition that will fuel this conversation around breaking big tech which will certainly impact voice assistance. Kind of how. How wall yeah. I think that's interesting. I was just talking to someone earlier today about this. They brought something up. And i said you know. There's a lot of companies out. There have been focused on different things over the last decade. And i think it's it it might be that a company like amazon which is really just focused customer. I you know they have their strategy customer. I you know that's been a twenty five year run of that focus. They might actually start looking more legal and regulatory focused over the next decade. And i take a lot of rash or maybe justifiably so to say we have to do that. In order to keep serving our customer. That is the way we best serve our customer. But i think that's really interesting thing but like not to go down that rabbit hole too much. Because i'm sure there's plenty of opportunities to do that. You're happy to comment on that. But this idea of assistance has been something that we've been talking about On voice for awhile. I know you've been talking about it. I think there's a sense that Doing this is too hard or that. The investment is really to significant that. If you're only only amazon or google can actually get away with this I don't think you agree with that. Yeah i think there are a lot of different ways to do this right. There are ways to do it Round up a lot of investment. Probably very hard as we've talked it out in the past like thank america did with erica and i have talked about the fact that we consider that to be successful. A lot went into that success rate but there are other companies that are doing it in very different ways. In still leveraging. I think solutions are kind of being patched together because today there are a lot of really interesting tool providers out there raza pico to fi- you could very well used pieces of these different assistance to at least start to test and understand when owned voice. Assistant would look like before. Making larger investment in rain has been kind of in the gamut of those types of experiences. So everything from you know. How do you do this from the ground up to starting to piece together. Some of those providers to It'll be solutions.

The International Reaction To Joe Biden's Win
"Farm minister who has now tweeted. Congratulations joe biden. On your spectacular. Victory joined with other nations. Latest around the world congratulating congratulate and on behalf of new zealand. Vicky nice including lights. I want to congratulate president-elect buydell and vice president-elect harris. us allies around. The world have moved quickly to congratulate president. Joe biden vice president-elect kamala harris on their win even as president trump still refuses to concede the election for countries like canada france and germany. Biden's victory could signal a return to cooperation on alliances like nato and treaties including the paris climate agreement but the prospect of a biden administration seems less promising to more authoritarian leaders with whom president trump ford strong relationships during his time in office including north korea's leader kim jong un brazilian president jair bolsonaro chinese president. Xi jinping who so far have all refrained from publicly congratulating biden and harris. Joining me now is yes means. Sirhan london base staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us again. As mean thanks for having me also with us. Clouds ladas professor of history and international affairs at the university of north carolina. chapel hill. Klaus good to have you with us. Thank you hello. How are you doing all right. We are in very interesting political moment right now. The president trump has refused to concede and yet president-elect biden is moving forward and the world is noticing clouds. How would you describe the scope. So far of the international reaction to biden's victory well on the whole thing that has been a lot of rejoicing a lot of applause for biden. I think people are hugely relieved that the trump administration will not have a second term and most people are most leaders in in europe and asia and of people in that country's overjoyed. I six they were really getting fed up for the trump administration. It was too dramatic too. Chaotic to unpredictable and people are relieved to see a new administration. I cost you said the administration was dramatic and unpredictable. And i think many americans would agree with you but it continues to be dramatic and somewhat unpredictable. Given the fact that the trump administration is now calling for recounts and investigations into what they allege voter. Inconsistencies are world leaders looking at that and saying anything about that. The fact that they're still Has not been a concession from president trump. Well del shaking their hands. Most of them are shaking the hats but the key for that sorts to themselves because it is no point to interfere in businesses seen as domestic american politics very few people at least very few democratic leaders have any understanding for what is going on in washington. It seems to be pretty obvious that the was of a free and walls not done in a fraudulent way at all and over. Four million people can vote for biden Rather than for trump's majority will lots of for millions of popular vote. He won miss. Four million people and the people have accepted. That biden is president-elect. And booby the new president but they are. You know wondering what's going on in washington but hardly anyone is actually surprised. At the trump administration would embark on such a course of action because that fits in with what is administration was like chaotic dramatic unpredictable and quite irrational to some extent mean given what klaus just laid out there in terms of the continued reaction to the world leaders at least us allies. Saying you know okay. We'll watch what's happening and see how this all plays out. How much of the reaction you think is excitement about biden himself versus relief about removing president trump from office. It's a great question. I mean it's worth noting An and i thought can of clauses overview spot on that you know for a lot of world biden is a very familiar character He certainly not new to the world stage. I think it was in. Benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime ministers congratulations that he noted that he's known biden for forty years. And i think a lot of world leaders know biden. So it's i. I think probably if i had to guess my assessment would be that it's probably the latter. I think a lot of i think a lot of the protests you are seeing in the us in the days after the result was finally announced was probably fell at least to me is an american observing from afar like a lot more relief than necessarily you know excitement. This isn't to say that you know. Folks don't like biden or unexcited to see him at the helm on his set a recognizable figure. But i think the world generally kind of just took a big sigh of relief that you know here returns a. Us option that recognizes. The us is traditional role in the world and will hopefully be kind of retaking that spot on the international stage. And yasmin. you are in london. Where prime minister. Boris johnson has had a strong relationship with president trump. How do you think this relationship between the us and the uk will evolve under a biden administration. It's a really good question. There's certainly been a lot of chatter about that very thing here kind of leading up to the us election and now after that we knew the result i think there is some conjecture that you know obviously as you just said President trump and prime minister. Johnson had a pretty good relationship. I think a lot of that stemmed from the fact that president trump was quite a big supporter of brexit. And you know. I think kind of quite appreciated the sort of comparisons between him and johnson superficial is some of the may be particularly. I think he quite liked references to johnson. As britain trump some remembering correctly and there has been some talk about some potential tensions between biden administration and johnson's downing street. I'm particularly with regard to brexit. Biden has been very clear about his support for the good friday agreement and opposing anything that would undermine it. And i think there's also some talk about how you know johnson before he was prime minister had made some comments with regard to president obama's support for britain staying in the eu. Where i think he made comments about obama's kenyan ancestry in how he had an ancestral dislike of the british empire so these are no doubt comments that administration would probably remember well. But i think it's worth noting that you know. These are things. I do not think are going to shake up the uk us relationship. In a major way. I think there's a lot more that And biden share particularly with regard to issues like climate change like the iran deal and. Yeah i mean. I think more broadly i would expect pretty good. Relations between the us and the uk going forward While it's certainly true. That trump and johnson had had a decent relationship I think you know the uk is is certainly a country that would see its relationship with the us being important irrespective of who's empower claus does not same theory hold true for other. You leaders like angela. Merkel for example and wilma call who themselves had troubled relationships with president trump. And who i can imagine so far are somewhat relieved to see this New administration elect. Yeah the But regarding johnson outside that johnson dossier a little insecure. He was the first international leader. I believe who fold up biden and congratulate him. They said i think that shows the level of insecurity and also abidance irish background. Bill make him wonder how. how how much you consult poured onto the united states in the future and the united vendor the united kingdom needs a trade. Deal the us. And i think he is for it. You know i think he would probably have seen a second trump administration as being more helpful regarding angela merkel and other european leaders. They certainly were relieved. Undiplomatic led a very bad relationship with trump or with raza. Put it the other way. Round a macro tried in various locations to make overtures to trump it was trump really rejected it who couldn't really in the end stand. Angela merkel nothing kid. He had a problem with female leaders. You had the problem as lead us. Who voted much more open to immigration and to do something about asylum people who were looking for asylum in their countries and he could understand and he also criticised the eu including germany for its huge trade deficit of us united states or rather to the united states of course had trade deficit busy you and he almost criticized the eu and it's trade policies. As much as he did china he called the eu. Actually a foe. Which is you know really surprising that you consider your most longest standing allies in the world that you suddenly regard them. As foes at least in trade relations. So underline michael and the german establishment as well as the french and other foreign policies tablets in europe are usually relieved that they see the end of the trump administration and us yes-men just that biden has a very good reputation. He is regarded to be quite honest as perhaps a little too old for the job but on the other hand is a centrist is not extreme is on the last notes of right people know him they a appreciate his his personality is a people person you some would say. Here's a backslapping sort of politician but much more extrovert much. More outgoing and much more ready to compromise than Trump was so all that shouting at nato summits or g seven summits all that Very bad atmosphere attention. The you know the almost talk about to break up of nato and talk about that trump wanted to undermine the quesion of political union of the european union all that will be a thing of the past because by and his administration can be expected to be very constructive to what nate to enter to you however having said that may the last sort biden will also insist on the european spending more money on their defense efforts so he will not be softer regarding nate and regarding the defense efforts of the europeans and here europe really needs to do something because that is an old complaint which goes back to the obama administration and before that wasn't actually unique to the trump administration. And the you know that they are very reluctant to spend more on defense. But i think a practice the president biden will actually be more successful in persuading them at. That would be the right thing to do as you mentioned. Joe biden's age. And i think that that's something that we must talk about because if something happens to joe biden we could be looking at a president kamala harris. And i'm wondering this is something that came up yesterday in our conversation about The role that black women played in american democracy in electing joe biden. We've seen kamala harris the first woman of color to ever sit in that role that i wonder how she will be received by world leaders. Yasmine your thoughts on that yet. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. Obviously that history-making of of her being elected the first female of vice president of colors obviously huge certainly noteworthy among a lot of the congratulations. that were received. I think it was prime minister. Narendra modi of india who actually dedicated an entire tweet just tacoma harris herself And i think the reason for that is is obvious. Obviously her indian heritage. He he sees that is is an opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between india and the us. but yeah. i mean. I don't know i would anticipate We as you say. Given president-elect biden's age that kamala harris could have a more hands on role than previous vice presidents that we've seen In in for that reason we may find that world leaders will quickly get to know come harris in a way that perhaps they didn't get to know vice presidents of the past and it seems just based on the comments that we've seen uncle mirko also an a made a comment about looking forward to meeting a kamala harris that we could expect that you know the world will be paying attention to both of them very much. Not just biden klaus What's been the reaction From china and president xi jinping so far there hasn't been much of a reaction. Xi jinping has kept quiet. We don't quite know why this speculation that perhaps xi jinping want antagonize the trump administration while it is still in office. The course and ten weeks you can do a lot of arm. And he knows that relations between china and the united states are difficult as they are that will continue to be difficult under the biden administration. So he's keeping a low profile on the social media in china have however been lots of comments. Some people really regretful that Trump is leaving because it made the united states weaker. It created a vacuum in international affairs which was appreciated by some observers in china as us believe you know it is much better to have a more stable more predictable government even if that government is perhaps more strategic in its relations with china. But they appreciate that proper possible predictability and international affairs so essentially. It's difficult to say what the leadership actually things and we will have to wait until eventually shipping and The foreign ministry in beijing will come out with a statement but they will do so nothing at the latest one set to mastic insecurity about the election. Outcome has been resolved than they of course will congratulate her joe biden and kabila harris now of course Clouds one country that we know has been watching the disarray In the united states or at least the tension in the united states has been russia. What have we heard if anything from vladimir putin and or his administration so far the gun russia's keeping a low profile putin hasn't congratulated i them and He is keeping quiet. Does not much coming out of russia but the they of course are disappointed. That trump did not win the second term. And there's been talk about disinformation campaigns. Not quite as much as two sixteen but russia did its bid to perhaps enable second trump victory and trump. However the to be quite. Frank hasn't been soft on russia. The administration perhaps not the president. Personally who always had such soft spot for putin and very confidential talks with him and no one really knows. What when on doing these talks but when you look at his policy his administration's policies towards a russia that wasn't soft all imposed over forty times a new sanctions on russia. So he the administration actually hasn't been soft on putin. But i believe that russia fears of fields that the unpredictability and the chaos and the. Let's say less focused way. of the trump administration than what could you can normally expect from an american administration that that in the end helped a russia that often the president Closed both ice and that influenced also of foreign policy. Make us in his administration like the state department. Yes maine another Interesting figure here is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has been a very close ally of president trump And that even translated into votes here. In the united states for the president from certain jewish orthodox communities. He congratulated joe biden and comma harris this past weekend. What do you expect to see from. Benjamin netanyahu in the near term when it comes to us. Israeli relations under a joe biden. I think this is something. That doesn't just apply to benjamin netanyahu but leeds had good relationships with president trump. I think narendra modi also falls into this category. And even figures like victor or bonham road regurgitate both of whom have also congratulated President elected biden But you know. I think he's a netanyahu in particular is a leader who obviously has a vested interest in maintaining a good. Us israel relationship irrespective of. Who's in the white house. It's no secret that obviously he benefited quite a lot. From having president trump in the white house the the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem being obviously one of those Kind of hallmark examples of a win for him That said He obviously you know. He recognizes that an admin the administration is changing. And i think he wants to shore up that relationship. But you know there's it it's been reported That the trump administration is hoping to kind of work with the israelis to sort of applies more punitive measures on tehran. Before trump leaves the white house in the form of sanctions to kind of make it more difficult for biden to return to the iran nuclear deal and try to bring that back it. This isn't to say that. Netanyahu and biden would necessarily see eye to eye on a lot of things i think we would probably see under a biden administration a return to the bit of the more traditional tone that we've known the us to take these israel Opposition to settlement expansion. That sort of thing support for a two state solution but indeed it will not be as rosy of friendship As we've seen between that and your home trump that's for sure we should also note that President trump's administration was also very close with bolsonaro of brazil. Both are considered to have really supported Populist movements and i'm wondering whether or not Desirable not who's also refrained from Congratulating harrison biden on their win and other populist movements across the world are looking at this and saying well maybe this is signals a change. Here i think it's definitely a loss for them. It's a setback. Because you know. I think particularly for leaders like bolsonaro. Who really sort of you know played on his relationship with president trump domestically I think this is a loss because you know even before particularly with populist movements even in places on like brazil where they aren't in power they could turn and look to president trump until their supporters. Look you know he's able to achieve this in the united states so we can achieve at here if know the greatest the most powerful leader in the world can do this that we can do this where we are so without question. I think it's it's a setback for them They lose that. You know that key ally in the white house But that said i think you know populous leaders like minded leaders to trump. Who could potentially take that narrative and sort of utilize it in their favor so While it is a loss for them. I don't necessarily think that it will end. Sort of their relationship trump or or will end them using trump is sort of an example to their benefit. Yes means seer. Han is a london.

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?
"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the
How Sandy Chilewich Built Chilewich
"Some of the most successful brands we've had on the show were incredibly simple ideas that didn't require much capital at all. Stacey Madison and a Sandwich Cart in downtown Boston at the end of the day, she'd cut up leftover pizza toasted in the oven and sell the chips in Baggies for a dollar eventually that became stacy's pita chips Lisa price wanted better skin cream. So she makes the shave butter and essential oils in her kitchen and pack them into baby food jars to sell at flea markets eventually that became Carol's daughter a line of Personal Care Products Kathleen, king baked chocolate chip cookies, and turn those into tate's bake. Shop. All three of these entrepreneurs used their most valuable asset, their own creativity. This was Sandy Chila, which is most valuable asset as well. Back in the late nineteen seventies in New York when the city was filled with struggling artists and squatters living in abandoned apartments, she and a neighbor decided to buy a few pairs of Chinese slippers and die them into different colors. That simple idea turned into a brand called Hugh and eventually they branched out into tights. After Sandy sold you. She launched in a second company called Chile each which is known for selling home products. Especially, place mats made from durable woven vinyl. Sandy grew up outside of New York and came from a family that had been in the leather goods business for generations. She says, she was pretty bad student. She went to Sarah Lawrence College, but ended up dropping out twice. So earn money she painted made sculptures and sold handmade jewelry. WHO's making a little bit from the jewelry one night a simple creative dewey yourself idea changed sandy's life. What happened is, is that emit I met a neighbor of mine in the loft building that I lived in in in New York City. So I'm living in Ohio it was. A factory building everybody was an artist in the building and one woman I who at that time she was an art teacher also doing some art but mostly teaching at her her name was Kathy Moscow or or. Was it Raza Moscow Moscow, Moscow and one evening we were together. We were Khalip tipsy drinking wine and I think we were in her loft and we were looking in her closet shoes and at that time all young downtown women what they would wear every day were cotton canvas shoes that we bought in Chinatown they were black and they were like really thin sole rubber back and that was cheap chic and. Like the flat shoes like flat yeah. Flat Jerry. Only Very Mary Jane's and they were three thousand, ninety, nine cents in Chinatown and we thought I don't know. How we thought this just occurred to us because we're both have our creative. We wondered like, why doesn't anybody make these colors and that night we one of us have clorox I had Ridi- and we bleached out the black it actually came out and we over died them okay and they look pretty great. You just thought we'll make them ourselves or friends or whatever. Yeah. Well, this'll be fun I. Don't know why I think sometimes, you just do it because it's fun to do it. So so we went we got more of them and we died a bunch of them and then we had building meeting in my loft or her loft.

Open Source NLU - Alan Nichol, Rasa
"I mean what we're trying to build with Raza is the standard infrastructure for conversationally I. So the same way that you have these. have no brainer technology choices, right? If you're adding. Search to your stack, you're gonNA use elastic search. If you're working with containers used docker similarly, if you're building conversationally, I use Raza. That's where we're headed. That's what we're aiming for, and of course, if you want to be that level of standard, you'd better be open source, right? So that's in a nutshell, the way it started was that my co founder, Alex and I. Were, building a few assistance ourselves. We had the first couple on the slack platform. We had some people bang for them. And just realize that the developer tools were lacking in. So many different ways, right. So we were using the tools that everyone was the time with a I was big than dial. was called API. Time the review others. And? While we kind of came with his controversial statement, right? So two thousand, Sixteen Fiscal Messenger Platform was opening up. And there's all this high. You know such an Adela, saying the new APPS and I go all this kind of. Rhetoric. And the day before that announcement from facebook, we wrote a posting. We don't know how to build conversationally I yet. Right? Like nobody knows the tools aren't there and this isn't GonNa go very well. And I think that has sort of played out kind of as we predicted, which was that the push came from people wanting to users through messenger APPs right because APP downloads or difficult to get. Wasn't because all of a sudden. We'd stumbled into a great new piece of technology and we're like, wow, look at all the new things we can build. Right. It was very much coming from people wanting to talk to people in Messaging APPs. And so we said, well, look, let's start for principals and think what tools do. We actually need to build great compensation I and what developers need. And we were working with some of these cod products realize that they're great for getting started quickly, but you very quickly also pain yourself into a corner, right? And the other thing as a developer, right? If you're. If, you're building an ailing startup. You're doing something right and every single message that goes in to your application has to go through a third party to get interpreted. It's pretty precarious situation to be as a developer right, and so we built a few things and we decided to hack together own. System, and then we were running this meet up in Berlin chat bots, balls, Berlin meet up. And everyone was saying Oh we're going to do. We're GONNA. Do our own NLP. You know. We don't have time now, but maybe next month something like that. Right, and always you know what he did, and so we said, well, why don't we just open source hours? And then everybody can contribute rather than rebuilding. Thanks. Very. Innocent insight by this was sort of six or eight months after message from opened up and everyone who is still seriously in the space have the same thought which was. I'm really dependent on the service which might shutdown might so being freedom is charging for it. It's not a great position to be in as a developer, and so when we said look, here's an open source drop in replacement for the clouds will the using. Now, it was just kind of the right product at the right time and instantly got a big community farming around it. So that's was kind of where we started, but we'd been working already for. Six months on a better way to build dialogue, and that wasn't ready for Primetime yet, but we'd already been working on that problem which was okay. It's nice to have this system right and you bring in message and you get back and intended some entities. bought. What do you do with that information and you just layer more if statements on one another all the time that be we're going to get anywhere, and so we've been thinking about that problem very hard and. because. Of the success of Razzano you which was the name of the library, I punched it. We decided to go all in on open sourced look. Everything has to be open source. And that kind of set us down that path burn interesting. Very interesting. So came from chat bots that came from a real need in the developed community using these cloud services I, you had wall stability tools, yourself, you open them up, and the rest is history of the community call onset communities been a real real key to success. Right? Right. From the very beginning, the community has built this company with you

Detecting disease earlier mean doesn't mean when it's just smaller than what we're doing now. No, even before the disease is clinically apparent, we should be able to detect and prevent it from becoming disease right right, and so in the long run I think what you're suggesting is some sort of a multi more continuous martling, so things that are you know designed to bed sheets into showers into into other things that you use on a daily basis can raise red flags, if explains If you complains inflammation, that might be useful.

When there was a measles bug going around or a flu bug going around comes seven kids. I stick with the call. Okay fine you're going to school the Mile Now. You have a virus. That apparently is almost impossible for kids to get in those same people that turned around. Not Why did kid their kids to go to school for months again? That's not Raza's where people come up and see people are stupid. Let's not the right word but if you go back to thinking about the two things that I said the heard thinking if the schools are closed that I want my kid not to go to school to everybody else's schools should be close. Let's close the school and secondly reacted to these fears dealing with the situation. If I don't want my kid to get sick see with the short-term okay. I don't I kid to get sick for this.

"You are especially the Cornerbacks the quarterbacks to have this boxer mentality, this confidence and this Wagner about him, and it does not surprise me. Listen, I play, but one of the best over the pri- the greatest quarterback of all time Dion Sanders. And he wasn't shy about his predictions about how he was going. Guys down. So it really reminds me of who was at the same time primetime and maybe there's a little peek into the future of what Jalen Ramsey's career could be if he can keep this up. Let's run through some of the quarterback. He called out starting with Matt Ryan, who he said was overrated. About two years ago at twenty. Sixteen Matt. Ryan was the MVP the league, and I'm not gonna go that direction. The same Matt Ryan over rated, but he hasn't played Jalen Raza has yet to play against Matt Ryan, just yet. But at the same time you're watching that Ryan from afar, you're always thinking you'll, he has all these weapons Julio Jones. The free about the Freemen's and all these guys are talented around him. Why hasn't he won the big one? So I see a guy like Jalen Ramsey going at Matt Ryan and questioning him being overrated according to Ramsay. Andrew luck is not good. Against each other in the last time, Andrew looks all Jalen Ramsey here at the Indianapolis Colts one that put ball game. But again, we haven't seen Andrew look and my going to call them over eight at no. But at the same time, who is Andrew luck moving forward? Who was he going to be? And this is going to be a heated rivalry. I can't wait till these two teams matchup. They see each other twice a year. We're going to find out a lot about Jalen Ramsey and we're gonna find out a lot about Andrew luck as well. How about Jalen talking about big been saying he's decent at bats. Oh, there's animosity here. True animosity here. The two big bullies in the AFC or have been the Steelers, and now it's the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are old last year against the Pittsburgh Steelers and listen. I was at the the Pro Bowl last year, and these two teams are on the same team in the AFC and they still didn't talk to each other. It was like it was. It was silent animosity towards each other. So I can see Jalen. Rams going at Big Ben because I'm sure they're going to see each other again, whether it be an AFC championship or somewhere in the playoffs. All right. There is real football being played tonight, including the jets taken on the Redskins at eight PM eastern on ESPN and Sam darnold played well in his first preseason game, Josh Norman's out here, raven about him. One more. Do you need to see from darnold to make him the week one starter consistency. He he needs to continue to grow in his role. Listen. I've heard a lot about this guy when he was in college and saw a lot of him playing Clancy Pendergast who's the defensive coordinator at UC spoke highly of Sam darnold three years ago. So this guy's going to be a superstar in the league because he's grinder because he's a student of the game and all thinks about his football. And that's what we want to see Sam. We want to see them continue to be consistent pocket. Old crossing rows away has take some shots down the field, control the huddle and understand it. He is going to be the face of this organization. I think everyone is concluding head coach, Todd Bowles is basically the raven about him. They know he's going to be the pace of this organization. All right..
