Charlie Kirk on Responding to the Naked Aggression Against Americans

"So Charlie, you were saying that, how do we respond to this naked aggression against what is called America effectively? Two things. So number one, I want to just recognize something. I wrote last year that the conservative movement has become anti fragile. If you're unfamiliar with the term, it's a great book by NASA lab, argues that the more you attack a certain organization or people, they actually get stronger. It's different than resiliency. It's a whole different category. I believe the conservative movement has become anti fragile. Dissidents are usually anti fragile. You have to be, right? Which is the more they attack you, the deeper our resolve goes. We'll out breed you while at work you will not think you will create you. I've seen that energy now in the conservative movement. They have Soros they have Zuckerberg, they have gates. We have the people we have organizing. This only this poor is a thermonuclear weapon on top of that. Okay, that's number one. But the second thing is how do we respond, which I, people act as if we don't have power. This is what drives me nuts about what we have to wait. Look, we're going to do fine. People are so motivated. They're going to camp out like a maga rally in front of the polls. People are going to wait like a week before voting. We're never going to see turnout whether or not we can stop the fraud and all this other stuff. We'll talk about that later. But we have power now. And so here's my radical proposal Eric. And I said this on my show, I'll say it here. Raids must be met with raids. State attorney generals that are Republican have to authorize raids against Soros groups, BLM Planned Parenthood, the alphabet mafia groomers, chemical castration of children now. Here's why. A hundred facilities should be raided by rated by the next week. Find them. You're trying to tell me there's not a hundred criminal organizations that are aiding and abetting people across the southern border, la Raza, we know them. They publicized it. I'm not saying you have to arrest them, just raid them. Find out what you find. Why? That will all of a sudden make them and their internal chatters. Nice. You are so stupid. You read Trump, now they're coming after us. Good. Now you know there's a price to this.

"People will be picking no code, low code, custom, just a mix of everything, or do you see one of them is becoming ascendant? Yeah, that's a great question. So I think it's the point is still where are your organizations sets in the spectrum? Of course, it's not one dimensional, right? It's not like, hey, here's a big player, the small player is the middle, right? But I would generally say it's, you know, if you sit in the middle, your ambitions, your use cases are more complicated than a few basic, right? And your brand. It makes sense for your brand to have some flexibility to have some control over your customer system and you want to build. Of course, you need to be on top of some platforms, some more sophisticated platforms. But yeah, sound is a great example. I think the how to fire a platform, not only they have in between local node code and Raza, right? But they're kind of in between. But I think the other benefit of using how to fire would be that they have a lot of public demands that they support. They have, yeah, they have whether they have sports and stuff. Which is, I think, in U.S. English world, our voice assistant. They are probably the only one I can find in terms of public domains. That's another benefit using them. And my dear has a great relationship, a great partnership with a work sound out already. So that's why, yeah, I work with them a lot. But I think if you are not looking at general domain question answering, then the question will become if you want to if you want to do something that is slightly more complex than you want to do multi turn of if it's not like a very rigid way of filling out a form. If you want to do something more creative, I think the key point for voices is right now to be successful is really the combination of product design experience overall and the technology. Not just technology, but technology is there to serve those requirements, then you probably want to do your own code, which idea didn't have that option when it started at 2017, building all that in-house technology. But I don't think it caused a huge team to build something on Raza. I think it caused some knowledge in terms of how to use it. If it sells small team, even like smaller than ten, I would definitely see that quite feasible if you want to bring up something on top of those platforms. So yeah, I would say if you have the knowledge and if you have the desire to be more flexible, you should probably try to go this way. If it's possible at all..

"Let's say that someone has a chatbot built with something like Watson or something like this. And they're getting they're getting transcripts and logs and stuff like that and maybe they doing things manually at the moment with all of their intents and training data in a spreadsheet. In fact, many, I would say that if you're using XL, you're actually a step above the very baseline because a lot of people will just have all of their training data held within the platform. Every time they change it, or update it, they update it in the platform. And they don't really know if it's changed if it's improved or if it's got worse. And you can't roll back and you're just kind of stuck with your trainer data held in this one place. So let's say there's someone is using something like that. I don't know, Dialogflow or whatever. And they want to send their data to human first to start utilizing it. How does that kind of workflow work? So we have the direct integrations with a few of the major vendors and platforms. So including Dialogflow Watson and Raza. So you can integrate directly to your project, pull in the data. So both the label data, let's say you're intense. And you're unlabeled data. So in the case of the platform that supports that, pull in the raw conversations. And basically, our customers use human first really to do all the work around that data to evaluate to track the revisions to look at kind of the history of changes, make sure that it's clean before pushing it back into their production systems. And that can be done as a direct push. Again, through our integrations or you can export the data and this typically in most of the development workflows is what's going to happen is that there's going to be some kind of more formal process to look at the track changes before merging it into a production. So we've coming from a development background and also seeing that our customers are enterprise customers that typically are kind of more mature and have reached that state where they've invested in teams internally. We favor more flexible approach saying, if you can get the data out and kind of easily support a formats and allow that to integrate within your workflow is going to be easier for you to ensure the quality. That said, we are actually about to release a kind of emerged feature, specifically for dialog CX. So it allows you to really review every single change from your entities intense tags, things like that straight in human first to accelerate the process. Nice, nice. It's interesting. So where do people as if, for example, a company has just kind of getting started. So they don't have a chatbot or maybe they've got some live chat perhaps or they've got calls. Human to human calls in the call center and stuff like that. So they don't necessarily have an ongoing piece of automation where they can use to tweak and train and stuff like that..

"To drive a self-driving car and you're removing older lives where there's pedestrians because pedestrians are difficult and we don't owe them all to learn about pedestrians because this is the data you're asking your model in production to make predictions about. So it better have seen some data, right? Too hard to see during training, but easy enough to handle at prediction time, right? That makes your sense. I saw a really relevant question come up. Chat, which I might jump in on. It was on the podcast last week from Deutsche Telekom. Yeah. I know him very well. Thanks for asking a question. I hope. Yeah, what role does tooling play is so crucially important. And over the last few years, I've continuously underestimated how sophisticated of tooling you need to do CDD effectively at scale with multiple personas with a large amount of data, right? It's a really gnarly and interesting problem, which is you have this stream of data, which is much more than you could ever possibly look at, right? And if I'm going to invest a human hour in improving my assistant based on this data, how am I going to know where to spend it? How am I going to spend it wisely? And how am I going to get feedback that our edges spent was well spent, right? And there are so many interesting subproblems in there, right? And this is what keeps us up at night and keeps us busy over at rasa is building that tooling that enables these large teams to do this kind of thing because it's easy to explain conceptually, but to make it really efficient and work nicely in an enterprise setting, this is a journey we're on and using things coming out of it. It's a real challenge, isn't it? I mean, I've worked in the past before these tools like the AWS intent minor and genesis have got one. I'm sure Raza has probably got something similar and human first and others that are kind of like you can just pipe a bunch of conversations in and they will take that real roll it up into a bunch of kind of like high level intent and you've almost got a place to start. But even just going through live transcripts before that kind of tool and exists and going through it and trying to familiarize yourself with what people are trying to get done, the kind of language that they use and trying to pick apart, not just training data, but structures of conversations and stuff like that. But I actually recommend people do still because it gets you understanding the actual complexities of a conversation. But you can't necessarily go ahead and build a production system off the back of an individual person reading thousands of transcripts because it would just take you forever. And so there is a definite real challenge there, especially when you've got something live and it's out there in the wild and you've got a website that's got a 100,000 visitors a day or you've got a call center that gets 40,000 calls a day or something like that and it's like they did, it was just absolutely abundant and isn't that amazing on top of without the iPad two and so how does deal with that problem? You've kind of alluded to it keeping you up at night is there something that you have that makes this easier now or is it something that you're kind of working on? Yeah. I mean I think maybe quickly just to sort of agree with what you said a second ago, right? I think it's so important of course to do things at scale and to analyze and look at the numbers and everything else. But there's no better pattern matcher than the human brain and a really unique thing about conversational AI unlike.

"You know, that as much as much as it's looked great so far, it is a very small sample. You don't understand how great it's been looking, no ride. They're talking about he looks slimmer and red. They're talking about how he's just smiling. What's interesting to me about that is that I think it speaks less to James Harden and if you can believe I'm about to say this because you know how I feel about but I think it speaks less to James Harden and more to like what was going on in Brooklyn and how messy that is. You know what I mean? I really do. I feel like I feel like James Harden has kind of probably kept his mouth shut about all that he saw in Brooklyn. If that makes sense. And he was just happy to be the hell out of there. And he feels free again. And so, you know, I'm happy, I'm happy that he's playing great. I'm really, I really want to see Ben Simmons on the court. I want to see what Brooklyn looks like. But not surprised by the sixers. I'm in the camp of there are a lot of really good teams in that damn east and I got to see it in the playoffs.

"Of what the user said to our NLU system, seeing what the intent is and then making some decisions from there. Versus something like Alexa conversations, which is this newer style, or even the latest version of Raza, where we're providing these example conversations, and then allowing the intelligence of that particular platform to determine what happens next rather than the code of my own system determine what happens and what even what is said in response. And our opinion is that we're trying to remain a flexible tool. So we want to support both of those kind of means of design. So we want to be a tool that you can use regardless of your how you're going to eventually implement this. To that point, though, one of the things that we'll be adding as a plugin for our command line interface very soon is okay, I want to take this script, which as we've been talking about, it starts as this linear script, but then I can start to add that structure. Because I can logically represent any potential conversation as a tree, then take every path through that tree and turn that into training data for Alexa conversations or Raza. So being able to support that kind of probabilistic model is something really interested in. And this is still like there's a lot of unknowns here for organizations, especially enterprises, so another feature of the sort of sets as a part we're trying to do differentiate ourselves with is the voxel assistant. And so this is the part that you had kindly mentioned. That is powered by GPT-3, which is OpenAI's large language model AI. It allows us to do really interesting things. So one of the things that we do is there's a little lightning bolt button at any point you're working in a script. You can ask the voxel assistant to just suggest a message. This can be a user message, a bot message, and it will make sense, kind of, given where you are at that point in the conversation. The next step is actually using the box assistant to drive what we call conversational prototypes. And this feature is still unlimited release. We're still working with teams on this, but the idea is I can build one of these designs, interact with that design without needing to train a natural language understanding model. It's the voxel assistant that's really driving it because it's not an actual end user interaction, right? We're just we're trying to give designers the ability to actually experience this interaction and part of what it does is just respond on your behalf if maybe I ask a question that isn't part of the designs. The assistant steps in and again, just generates a potential message. And that is a step toward that because it starts to kind of give organizations a feel for what that's like will allow you to kind of point it out of knowledge base or frequently ask questions so that it's actually generating a response that's relevant to your organization, but gives you a chance to experience what.

Even the people that are a little bit late in the game, but are catching up at a speed that is in men like our record is with all the was a little bit late, but they are pushing really, really hard. After you have all the technology that have different value like Raza, Raza, open-source, great platforms. But not a simple platform. But we a lot of advantage a lot of value a lot more freedom so it's lovely because you don't have to play on me on your training data. You have also access to the full pipelines and you can pick your tokenizer and all the gizmo you want, however it's not simple for people that haven't mastered all that all that technology can be a little bit overwhelming at the same time as you don't have to go into one and infrastructure. You can say you can say you can in time. So there are also different value and cost and so on. But. The key providers are very good after you have also newcomer AI and so on. We know I'm a little bit less. So I will not talk too much about the FFO and Amazon also laxis is investing quite hard into it. I think the way behind and the caption pattern right now. Interesting. So you mentioned that there was four stages. So the first stage was identifying and producing that training data. The second sphere as you said was that testing the model initially was it? Yeah, absolutely. So testing the models. What are some of the, well, first of all, you mentioned manual testing, which I think a lot of people do. And I would say that manual testing obviously and inevitably you're building you're building your testing around the same assumptions that fed the training data. So it's obviously..

It's platforming craft sharp already hilarious wit and creates a sequel that shows off the tremendous complexity of the human brain and the thrill of unearthing. it's wonders i adored. Almost every second or second to it achieves something. I don't often seen games a continual sense of all as each of its worlds and falls. It took sixteen years.

"On july twentieth. Nineteen twenty four. Tehran authorities declared martial law after a mob killed an american consul. Major robert embry. The decision was designed to give the city a chance to regain order before an international crisis tore the nation. Apart leading up to the death. Iran had been a hotbed of foreign interest. 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.

And i don't edit it myself so i was interested to see that most of my wikipedia page is about religion and atheism. Not all of it. It does talk about my research a little bit but a lot of it is about you know my philosophical religious views The debates that i've had about religion and things like that which is interesting to me because in my self conception It's perfectly fair. You know. I am an atheist. I've talked about it a lot. No question about that but it's still a small part. Relatively speaking who. I am and what i do but it speaks to the fact that people are interested right that these are issues that matter to people. The physics is there but the religion. There's atheism that's what's really important. And it's not wrong to be interested in these issues. The nature of the universe includes the question of whether or not. It is mostly a naturalistic universe. Or some kind of theistic or spiritual or beyond naturalistic universe in some sense. So i've long wanted to have more conversations here on mindscape about those issues and we've touched on it before we had jeremy england who is a physicist. But who's also religious and we had people like mark devilliers who talked about the history of hell and extremely amusing podcast. The that i recommend that you listen to if you haven't already up and i wanted to get a religious person on to talk about religion and so today's guest raza's lawn is a great person to do exactly that now. People who are classified or self classify as religious or faithful or believers. Come in a lot of different varieties right so just saying someone is religious. Almost doesn't tell you that much about them There are people who are very hard core and also very almost anthropomorphic about it..

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.

How Lowriders Were A Protest Against White Supremacy

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.

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. I can't remember and we had all the shoes out and everybody in the building they all said Oh, my God, what did you get? These are amazing this. So. Just died Mary Jane's because it seems so simple simple thing. Well, this is a time seriously were things were not available in a lot of colors this was before or around the same time that for the first time get t shirt and twelve colors like canal genes, which was one of the forerunners of this was just a couple of blocks away from us where you would get t-shirts that people would die at home and then sell because you couldn't get it t shirt in a hail teal

"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
