"Start the proverbial stream and here we are this is indeed yes yes yes as it is right now hello ladies and gentlemen boys and girls here we go welcome welcome welcome to VUX world I'm your host Kane Sims and I am with today Adam Odeski from Sensely. Adam hello. Hello Kane how are you? Good to connect. Good to connect long follower time first -time caller that's me to you not you to me I've been following you for a long time definitely definitely yeah it's I'm so glad that we can connect and definitely definitely appreciative of your of your time and we're gonna jump in in just one second but very firstly before we do that I just want to quickly give a shout out to everyone who's tuning in whether you're on the podcast whether you're on LinkedIn YouTube wherever you are we are doing webinar a on it's it's a fortnight it's probably two weeks away now depending on when you listen to this but it will be on the is it the 9th let me just double check my dates the 9th of November save the day 9th of November and what it is is we will be joined by wisdom we did a webinar with them previously we had a look at that tool we had a look at the conversational analytics components there this time we're going to be taking you through a framework for chatbot improvement and this is the whole kind of theme for this is patronum expecto summoning the majesty of chatbot improvement if you in fact if you're a Harry Potter fan you'll like the the theme for this one but even if you're not Harry Potter fan doesn't really matter because it's not magic it is a proven framework it's a step -by -step process and we're gonna walk through some case studies and some examples of how you can first find the things that need your attention so you're not working on the wrong things you make sure you're working on things that are moving the needle what kind of things can you do to remedy it how do you track improvements over time and how do you make sure that your chatbot is constantly delivering value to to the business so if you are interested in joining that you can go to V UX dot world forward slash events or you can go to the V UX dot world website and the events tab there and feel free to enroll and join and we will see you next Thursday alright as I said thank you Adam for for joining me well let's let's kick off let's kick off with with yourself first of all and we'll get into sense because I know since he's been around for a long time actually so tell you tell us tell us a bit about yourself and how you how you kind of got involved with essentially oh yeah sure so I've actually been in the avatar or the voice user interface world for a very long time my first job out of college was actually with the Oracle voice lab in Chicago where we were building enterprise this is back in 2001 I guess I'm trying to kind of figure out I'm getting old I feel pretty young feel like a kid still but I guess I'm pretty old now but back into back in the early 2000s I could say my first job out of college was with the Oracle voice lab and the goal of the Oracle voice lab was to build enterprise voice applications that would sit on top of the Oracle application server so things like email and calendar and files things like that sort of like what Siri does today or the Apple you know the smartphones do today we're building in voice with voice applications and the goal for establishing the Oracle voice lab and these applications was basically one executive at Oracle who wanted to listen to his email on his commute in Silicon Valley from like his his place in Santa Cruz up to Redwood City so he really wanted to like listen to his emails as he was driving he's like okay well let's let's establish this lab so we can build these voice applications like what I have to do for the day and my emails from the last night and my first sort of I guess claim to fame or one of actually the first applications that I wrote was voice access to email where it was based sort of a voice made a voicemail model and it's interesting with the voicemail model because back I guess voicemails you can just tap and listen to voicemails today but you know quite early before the way the way you would listen to voicemails is that it wouldn't go from the the latest voicemail that you have down to the earliest unread voicemail it would start at the earliest unread voicemail that you have and go up to the latest so more chronological order and so that was the pattern that we used for building voice access to email we wanted it to be just like voicemail and that was kind of a tricky algorithm to figure out which which of your emails is the most unread one you know the earliest unreading you have so I had to like build this application to sort of start with that earliest unread email and they had maybe other unread email scattered throughout your inbox but the earliest that was in chronological or in like pattern order that also follows other unread emails all the way up to the top and we use kind of a it was like a Genesis platform or the voice genie platform IVR platform at the time to to basically use voice XML right and I was a voice ex developer I started out as a voice XML developer to to build these to build these applications and besides email I built you know calendar and you can listen to like you you know the appointments so you have for the day and and you know in file so it's kind of an early version of a voice based assistant digital assistant you can you can compose new emails and you would use your voice to basically compose the email so we didn't have great speech -to -text technology back then so the the emails would come as with a voice with an audio attachment basically of your recording but we had you know a large grammar for and we had recognition to like basically say the name of the person that you're trying to email so that was kind of early experience one of the earliest they think experiences in building these kind of voice only IVR applications for enterprise right for personal information for information management that that employees could use whatever they were away from the phone so that was sort of the start of my career that's how I got into this space building these applications later on I actually worked on a real voicemail product that was based on email except the emails were actual kind of deemed as voicemails you can just listen to your voicemails that used email servers to basically be transferred around and later on I went after that I went to work for for tell me networks which was later acquired by Microsoft and there's another example of a similar thing though wasn't it an IVR based assistant that's right that's right and tell me networks had a very actually large enterprise business as well and this is where I got a chance to work with big companies building both inbound and outbound IVR applications for their customer service so we worked with you know companies like United Airlines and E trade a bunch of a bunch of these big names insurance companies like Humana etc and I always had a I had a kind of a niche for health care you know on the my family had a lot of kind of health care issues over the years my grandma especially had heart failure and it was interesting I was so experienced with these customer service IVR applications but if you look at you know the way doctors work the way hospitals work they hardly use any of these kind of technologies to communicate with their patients it was always difficult to get a hold of a doctor was difficult to book an appointment and especially people with chronic conditions you know they they hardly ever followed up and you know the way the better these conditions is for you to check like you check various vital signs like blood pressure and weight and you know other things like glucose levels if you're diabetic and I always like I wondered why is the healthcare industry so far behind you know travel and transportation for instance or insurance or you know hospitality and those are the industries I was mainly dealing at tell me and Microsoft and so that's kind of that itch became sort of a passion of mine to build something that was similar to what I was building in you know it tell me in it oracle but specifically focused on the healthcare industry to do these kind of IVR outbound follow -ups and you know conversations where somebody can report something new or report their symptoms and that's sort of the that led me to eventually start building out Sensly to focus on that part of the industry which I thought was very much underserved but at the same time the need was I thought higher than and you know both the social need and the financial need you know was it was higher than any other sort of enterprise applications I've ever worked on and that was sort of the focus that I started the path that I started going on which eventually led to creating Sensly and then here we are yeah here we are the rest is history so they say that's really interesting that the the stuff from from before they're kind of like the tell me stuff in that was that using like keyword recognition was there like it and it was that one of the first sort of like intent based NLU systems like what kind of stuff was that using and and how did that inform what you wanted to do when you started building Sensly yeah so back then tell me and a bunch of other companies in the space this is around you know 2005 2010 I would say that that period in time that was still heavily using voice XML as a language for creating these applications the way voice XML works it's very similar to HTML where you would specify these tags of prompts that you want the you know the voice bot or the IVR system to say and then you'd have these grant would call them grammars back then I haven't used that term I haven't heard that term now being used in a while but you would build grammars of the things that you wanted to recognize and now I guess these are called intense and the way you build grammars there's a bunch of these grammar specifications like GSR and and some other ones but they kind of involve both sort of specifying the kind of keywords right that you want the system the speech recognition system to to listen for and some of these can be very large you can have a very large data set of keywords and then you could also specify like slot fill so which which keywords or which words or which phrases I need to be assigned to a particular slot and that's kind of a definition of an intent right you have a bunch of these kind of phrases and patterns and there's a lot of these pattern matching type of scripting involved into figuring out like these particular patterns and these kind of patterned orders is what a person has to say in order to fill this particular slot and that's the intent definition I think is much more broad now and you can specify a lot more things you'd be able to specify before but you know the GSR and the other kind of grammar definitions that then we're pretty sophisticated the the the speech recognition systems obviously weren't as sophisticated because you didn't have this speech -to -text translation that you have now and the matching of the speech recognition system was specifically done on these grammars you have to pass it into the speech recognition system specifically what you're looking for and it'll tell you whether there's a match or not now what it does is obviously translated to text and then you can do a lot more more specific and more customized matching on that text to figure out exactly what you know what you're looking for what the intent should match to what do you think because that because voice XML not very many companies use voice XML anymore don't do they where our CTO Justin he was saying that there's a lot of functionality that voice XML had that now doesn't kind of exist like what was how is there anything from your perspective being lost in the kind of transition to that more sort of speech recognition translated to text pass it off to a to a you system and like is there yeah is there anything that you think it's been sort of lost there was any benefits to it over and above I think the specification of how you would listen for particular types of phrases or particular kinds of intentions was much kind of easier to imagine for a developer to kind of figure out like this these are the kinds of things that I'm I'm listening for but I don't think there's anything that's been lost specifically I think there's just more features that were more obvious that made people think about how to develop an application like the these grammar specifications so they'll turn out a lot like what exactly this is do I want from this and it's harder to do that now with just speech to text where you're getting like a text string the other thing that you know in text -to -speech you use SSML which is a markup language to specify like the prosody or how the language or how something is pronounced or how something is spoken and I see fewer and fewer companies and developers using the power of SSML to specify how to pronounce specific specific things they kind of rely on the text -to -speech engines to just give them what they want when they give it the text without thinking about how that text should be spoken but the SSML inside voice XML kind of provided sort of an obvious way and made the developer think or the designer think about specifically not just you know what what the text should be spoken according to design but how the text should be spoken what kind of tonality to use what kind of prosody to use where to put in the specific like excitement or emotional cues we do that quite a bit at Sensley because you know healthcare conversations by nature have to be empathetic or we want them to be as empathetic as possible to reassure patients or to reassure you know people that everything's gonna be okay and we use quite a bit of that's a smell in our work but I don't see a lot of designers well building voice applications do to these things today because I don't think a lot of them actually know that SS this even though you can and most text -to -speech engines you can embed us SSML inside the prompts but they're just not well known yeah I agree and then that's that's with a voice user interface all you have is what it sounds like so like this is ML is a crucial sort of design tool to make sure that you can create the experience in a way that people expect you know so I definitely agree yeah yeah there's such an underutilization of SSML I think the Alexa community that's when I first come across since it actually it was when I was kind of like you know really tracking the Alexa movement we were building out and designing Alexa skills and Google actions and stuff and that I think Amazon did a pretty decent enough job of kind of you know educating people about SSML but the the community now is there's people come from absolutely all over the place some people come for messaging now they're kind of doing voice some people come from the contact center kind of like getting into it that way and so I agree there's definitely a gap there in people's one maybe is understanding and to certainly usage of SSML and it doesn't make a huge difference and if you look at the rate then you know the ratings for how people have people complete conversations what people actually think of the of the you know that the voice bot those things really make a difference as far as like judgment as far as appreciation as far as empathy and connection I think those are important tools to build really high quality voice applications definitely so so so you you left what was then Microsoft then you you think you are you identified that there's a an opportunity in healthcare you had the idea for sense Lee where did that kind of begin it was 2013 so it was a while ago so what were the first kind of few years like of getting essentially going yeah so since Lee actually started in the orange voice lab or the orange the orange lab or is a large telecommunications company you may know based in France yeah in the UK as well used to be France telecom and so I worked at the local research lab here in San Francisco that's where I built the first prototype of the avatar having conversations with patients that was the original sort of goal of my project at that point in time avatars only existed on the web via Adobe Flash I remember that yeah it was important you know at that point there were no avatars for the mobile phone right down to the kind of for avatar creation tools so what I did was this is like the hack at the time I made Adobe Flash work on on the iPhone and was able to make it the avatar work on both Android and and the iPhone and the first sort of applications were kind of a symptom checking a symptom checking tool and that's when you know like I displayed this tool at like like an event one of the events here in San Francisco it was health 2 .0 and I got like a standing ovation based on this avatar that like this talking avatar nurse that that I built as a demo and orange got really excited and they allowed me to spin out the company and that's what became sense Lee and that's how since we started in 2013 he knows actually a spin -off from orange and the first application that we built was the symptom checking application that was able to essentially that we marketed it as a virtual nurse a virtual avatar nurse that you can get on your smartphone and you can tell it what your symptoms are and it would basically navigate and ask a few questions navigate you to the appropriate place for care for care and we we we started the company we joined a couple accelerators there was our initial kind of fundraising is that we got a couple hundred thousand dollars for from alchemist accelerator and a few investors and our first big client that we landed it was actually the NHS which you may be familiar with the National Health Center here in the UK oddly enough we're a u .s.

"This has to do with changing our mindset about water reinvention means that you absolutely need to think about what kind of futuristic solutions you need to have in place. That would take pressure off our existing system, she says. This reinvention could begin in our front yards. Research shows that getting rid of water guzzling moms can cut urban water use in half lawns should be banned. Every drop of water that's used to maintain that lawn can be a drop of water that can live in the reservoir. If this drought ends up being the tenure, droughts Agriculture could do the same and have a smaller economic impact than expected, says U C. Davis professor Jay Lund. That's because half of all irrigated farmland yields about 90% of the state's crops. That water largely comes from the states. 1500 reservoirs, But one says building more of them for water. Storage isn't a good option, either. We've done this 1500 times what do we have left expensive places that don't give you much water? He says the good options are conserving water, sinking water into aquifers and recycling water already in the system. My thinking is we should be doing 100% recycling. Arvind Akila directs engineering for the wastewater treatment agency. Silicon Valley clean water in Redwood City, he says. On a daily basis, the Bay Area is discharging hundreds of millions of gallons into the day. Apart from cost, Akila says the main issue around water recycling is public perception that it's dirty because it comes out of the human body. But he says recycled water is often cleaner than freshwater sources. It has gone through dinosaurs. It has gone through human bodies. That water is the same water. Whether it's recycling water or getting rid of lawns are both coming up with the right solutions is about ensuring a more resilient future as droughts worsen in a warming climate. I'm Ezra David Romero KQED news. There's about a week left to vote in a special election for state assembly in the East Bay voting ends next Tuesday. The 31st two Democrats Janani Ramachandran and Mia Bonta are vying to fill a seat last held by Brantas husband Rob, who is now the state attorney general. Joining me to discuss the final stretch of the campaign is KQED politics reporter Guy Marsa Roddy. So guy. What are the biggest differences between how these two candidates would represent the 18th Assembly district? Well, I think with Bonta you'd see the type of progressive legislators similar to her husband, Rob, who represented Oakland San Leandro Alameda, this district since 2012 and was really in line with the Democratic supermajority in Sacramento. Rama Chandran, I would say is more likely to push back against the Democratic status quo in some unorthodox way is an example of that is that she's called for significantly reforming the California Environmental Quality Act. This is a landmark environmental law but which critics say is a roadblock to development. Bonta says she opposes reforming this law and then a really fundamental difference of opinion between these two candidates is over the stadium development that the Oakland A's are proposing for Howard Terminal in Oakland. Ponta says she's for it, Rama Chandran says. It's a giveaway to a rich sports team. Let's talk about a couple controversies in the campaign. The two candidates debated live on KQED Forum last week, and things got pretty heated. Ramachandran attacked Banta about some of her supporters. What does she mean? Ramachandran really tried to make the case criticizing some of these independent expenditure groups also called super PACs. They are independent from the campaign. They have no spending limits, and they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Bata. So we've seen money from unions from medical groups, most recently from the building Industry Association. And it's led Ramachandran to make this argument that she's running really against corporate greed. And she says Barter will be beholden to groups like these developers who are spending to support your campaign. And then Bonta shot back at Ramachandran for accepting the endorsement of the Alameda Citizens Task Force. What was that about? Rights. That's an advocacy group that Bonta is criticized for being a NIMBY organization for opposing new housing. They've opposed multi family housing and battled with supporters of strong rent control laws in Alameda, and Bonta says it's really hard to reconcile Rometsch. Hundreds promised to be a pro tenant candidate when she has a group like this behind her, okay, just over a week until voting ends. How do voters cast their ballots? Well, everyone in the 18th district. All voters got a ballot in the mail for this special election. They can send it back in the mail or through a Dropbox and Alameda County is also opening a few early voting locations starting this weekend, South Shore Center in Alameda, the East Mont. Mall in Oakland and the Veterans Memorial Building in San Leandro. KQED Politics reporter Guy Marzorati. Thank you. My pleasure. I'm Markle Maria.

In my case, specifically, he's met with the victims. He has visited Walter Reed. So I think he is really dedicated to not only ensuring that CIA officers get health care but also But also find out who's responsible. But I don't think we're there yet.

President Biden on Tuesday named Lina Khan, chairwoman of the Federal Trade Commission, shortly after her Senate confirmation. The announcement has put Silicon Valley on edge more from NPR's Bobby Allyn. Not long ago, 32 year old Lina Khan was an obscure academic in 2017. While still a student at Yale Law School. She wrote a paper about Amazon that quickly change that concept. Amazon's practices are predatory, and that the company got so big because U. S competition laws are broken. Some call that view hipster antitrust she challenged and orthodoxy with others built a new community that has changed the debate. That's Bilko Vasek. He's the former chair of the FTC, he says. Having someone like Con ready to review Silicon Valley's mergers, Privacy practices and control of markets is not good news for Big tech. They never saw this coming. I would guess that the level of anxiety within that community increased dramatically over the last 24 hours. Tech industry lobbyists say Khan will be bad for innovation and consumers Con is forging ahead At her April confirmation hearing, she pointed to one area of interest, big tax reliance on our data. I worry that in some cases, some of these companies may think it's just worth the cost of business to actually violate privacy laws. Vasic says.

"And i think we're all going to come out of it much stronger in derek. What are some of the good things that can come out of all this you know. I think again for a long time. I've been part if the gentiles fan club because she articulates so much about the way. I feel about what libraries can do. What i think has been transformative about this past year. Plus is that. I think that libraries have recognized that we can make a difference in anything. That's facing our community. There are very few agencies that are equipped to deal with the effects of a racial equity reckoning a economic crisis a public health crisis all at the same time but these are all problems that we have tools to help our communities were through and these are all issues. That can be part of our purview. I think fit libraries can easily kind of put ourselves into boxes that there are specific things that we do obviously literacy and child development and school readiness. These are things. That are obvious. Nexus with the library and susan mentioned some of the work that was done in redwood city and other communities using the library as a central point for discussion of the housing crisis and how people can be brought together for solutions to address that issue that has plagued bay area for quite some time. So i mean for me. You know while i'm exhausted in some ways. I also feel energized by the realization that you know libraries don't have to just transform communities in kind of the narrow ways that we stereotypically thank god that libraries have the power to really contribute to whatever. Our communities are facing an susan. Turning to you. You've worked not only with our two wonderful subject matter experts today but libraries across the state. What are some of the good things that you could see coming out of. What looks to be darkness into the light thank you. I had high expectations for this conversation. And i love that. We've had a chance to hear. Have these leaders blend. Being accountable public agency with nimble caring people were constantly monitoring the pulse of the community. What it needs. And for me. What i hope comes out of cobras with derek. Said that we are not going to unseat the realities facing our communities. But i think libraries have a unique set of sight lines. Where these things come together not to overwhelm not to ask librarians to be superheroes that solve all but really to be those key. Collaborators that's both gender talked about what are those collaborations. What is that web of understanding who needs what end the supports in the ecosystem in the community including activating those community members. Who can be part of making things better in transformed so that people are not just a bucket of needs. They are part of the solution. So as the library helps. People grow in their own individual potential. I get so excited about the collective potential in. I think georgia series voices of community. You know let's do this positive what we just did today to reflect. Been working with libraries up and down the state on the library recovery dot org preparing to respond him recover together and we have some libraries in some public agencies. That are so busy. It's like will this be over soon. And it is the organizations that pause and reflect in figure out. Just what we were doing today. How can we leverage it. How were these disruptions positive. That is where we can accelerate that growth in that transformation so this series these leaders the whole thing to me addresses. it's not if but when that next disastrous coming but we can make the transformation happened in between his. Well thank you. That was great..

Because Tampa's leading the NFL, Stephen takeaways and over the last couple games, they're they're averaging almost 2.5 takeaways per game. And that's like the one the takeaways in the NFL. That's extra possessions and that evens the playing field. I should've factored that in Yeah, and I and I factored in Erin's mobility and Tom's immobility and thought, I know I think, in the long run his mobility and 2021 is going to be the difference. But I didn't see that goofball stuff a day and a half and the group all formal. I just didn't see those turnovers, two turnovers and 36 seconds. That literally changes champs of games. If you take those goes away. You know, it's obviously different game. What you always is when you have to see two big screw ups. Those two have here. Here's the thing E said this dead two days ago, Larry, They lost the turnover battle. Green Bay won the battle. But what he was doing it when I told you that No, but that game was basically I thought kind of over at the half, and then also Tampa's defense kind of rose up in the second half. When when, when they got green Bay was coming back and suddenly jpp and Barrett just said, You know what? Now we're gonna put more heat. They stole a couple possessions there. What, late third quarter where it looked like Green Bay had a shot. Well, think about Larry. Think about this, You know, a guy that's been through the ups and downs of champion football.

Make sure to visit their website in their covert page and really just understand what to expect before you get there, because there's a lot of changes. It's not business as usual. What type of changes are are you guys seeing? Well, there's many things from, you know, Face covering is required and appropriate physical distance scene that you would expect, especially with storm's coming and something to keep in mind is indoor access is really limited. You're gonna be able to go inside and warm up, but only for a short period before you're gonna have to go back outside. And with all these precautions, and that with the state home ordering, please. What kinds of trips? Are you guys recommending? What would a safe Tahoe trip look like? Well, we're really seeing an expected in a lot of up and back straps. Our hotel is closed.

And then you're gonna have to head back home after that. We do require that all guests buy their tickets online in advance, and we do that so that we can control how many people were in the resort at any given time. We are checking guests this They come into the parking lot, and if they don't have a confirmation they're being asked to leave and those out in back trips are in part because if people do come up to the area and stay overnight for a vacation They're violating that stay at home order, and I know Tahoe area officials wrote to Airbnb before Christmas, asking them to urge renters and vacationers to canceled overnight trips. And I'm wondering how this is impacting the resort. Sure, Well, we're seeing that absolutely, You know, we are a day resorts and generally our guests for coming up for the day and leaving Then we've had some guests that you know, are requesting a refund due to the state home order that went in place. So when we're allowing that, anybody that booked the trip prior to the tents, and then now they're looking to cancel that trip because they no longer have their hotel where accommodating that, so we're rolling with the punches up here trying to be as accommodating as we can, and we just expect our guests to adhere to the policies and when they are here Try to keep us safe and keep us open for the season and obviously was you're in a very difficult position. I mean, I've seen that some Tahoe residents are pleading for vacationers to stay home not come up at all, because No, there is possibility that regional hospitals are under equipped.

Future of Football: Readers respond
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. Future a football readers respond by Al Sarah Cevic in late October, the chronicle published a six part series examining the future of football. The premise was simple now that we know the sport can cause lasting brain damage. Driving some to suicide. What are we going to do about it a dedicated team of chronicle? Journalists spent months digging into the subject, you can read the whole thing at SF chronicle dot com slash future afoot ball in a letter to chronicle subscribers I encouraged response. What do you think should be done? What will the game look like in twenty years? Let me share a few of those voices. Thanks, your reflection is so important. I did love your projection that football would look like boxing. Why the continued ignorance with little effort to address the problem, Frederick e Hessler at San Francisco, all your main recommendations. Make logical sense. And are the right thing to do. I was lucky. I was too small for playing grade school football, my coach realized this I believe in I sat on the bench. My mother always feared I would get seriously injured with regard to parents and kids now ultimately people need to make their own decisions about what to do with regard to their children playing football. If flag football is an option that would be great. I believe sooner than later American football, as we know it won't be as popular. Instead people will migrate to lesser injury prone sports that are also rewarding for fans parents schools and students John Durham Napa. Everybody's jumping on the football is dangerous bandwagon. This story is long winded bull all major sports have physical contact soft. Wimps are ruining this country and turning our men into soft little pansies look at the average something male today. Weak wimps worrying about the. Next superhero or Star Wars movie, all this coddling and winding is pathetic name withheld. I'm sixty eight I played for four years in high school and a year of college. I never finished a season mostly knee injuries. But I broke my thumb in college in a way that required surgery. I also boxed in college. I attended a forty Niners Cam for high school students where a very aggressive game of quote unquote, touch resulted in a hit that caused me to lose vision in one eye for a few plays naturally. I stayed in the game. So far it hasn't caught up to me. Anyway, I think one partial solution is to make all the pads and helmets soft on both the inside and the outside. Also, I think many knee injuries could be eliminated. If there were no cleats Leif ODA grin Petaluma step one change, the channel the rest of it really won't matter so much Greg Tolman, Berkeley Ulta. Emmett frisbee all quarterbacks. No, linebackers, spike. Connor Redwood City. It would be interesting to know, whether rugby has the same level of problems with brain trauma as football rugby players wear. No helmets or padding. And there are strict rules about tackling. I suspect that the protective gear in football increases the incidence of brain trauma because it allows players to hit each other harder. It doesn't take a direct head impact or cause a concussion. The sudden acceleration from a hard hit can do it. Even if there's no head contact in rugby players are less inclined to use their bodies as weapons when tackling because it could cause injury to the tacklers. It's counter intuitive, but reducing the amount of protective gear in football could make it a safer sport. The culture of the sport has to change to players coaches fans broadcasters and reporters have to stop seeing a disabling hit as a good thing. Ng? Jeff Lichtman Elsa. Reto? Bravo end. This disgusting sport. There's five thousand four hundred seventy two more peaceful ways for young people to quote, unquote, build character, Chris Moffet, San Ramon great articles on the game of football. If you get a chance read some of the books or articles on John gangly Ardy, the Saint John's university division three coach whose philosophy on the game of football was so different than any coach. I've known even in the fifties and sixties no tackling in practice. No practice longer than ninety minutes. Water breaks it Sarah his philosophy worked. He one more football games. Four hundred eighty nine than any coach in NC double A history along with four national championships. I played for John in the sixties on one of his championship teams. We never had anyone hurt in practice except the occasional ankle sprain. We had a few transfers from schools like. The university of Minnesota where Murray Warmoth coached with the philosophy of making the practices tougher than the games kind of survival of the fittest code that was not unusual at that time football needs to change again. Thanks for the great articles Terry Underwood, according Madera, here's a modest proposal. Make everyone eligible why linemen are ineligible for passes. Always been a mystery to me this is somewhat more radical than the eight ten offense. I think that's what it was called that. The Piedmont high coaches developed and was voted down by the NF s but it would keep the nature of the game intact while changing dramatically if everyone is eligible the game will spread out, and there will be more of a premium on speed and agility, then raw size, power football will make less sense and just as the three point line and the warriors style has pretty much removed the power game from basketball, especially at the lower levels. There will be a shift toward more scoring. And use of the whole field. It's not a complete or perfect solution. Of course. But it moves the game away from one on one contact and towards skill and speed clay Callum, walnut creek, the late US Senator, gene. Mccarthy democrat Minnesota had a great line. He said football is like politics, you have to be smart enough to understand the game and dumb enough to think it's important Eric mills Oakland, thanks to all of our readers who responded, interestingly, we didn't get much from people defending the sport as it stands. Maybe we're preaching to the choir here in the bay area. Maybe people are starting to see the truth.

Crimes was denaturalized in two thousand three ordered deported the next year and that appeal was denied in two thousand, five but he remained in the country right so why he was ordered to be deported.
