Do Viking Cruises Lives Up To All The Hype?

"Can viking ocean cruises ever be as good as their fans would lead you to believe. Before i came on viking. I was constantly told by people who love viking ocean that it is wonderful. it's magnificent. It's unique it's different. It's the best it. Does this better that better. So i bought it my very first ocean crews here on viking venus with a little bit of trepidation and some pretty high standards what i can tell you as you see during the course of this. It didn't entirely go to plan. I was blindsided by things. I was surprised by somethings and some things. Were basically pretty much. As i expected but the thing that really stood out no one had really warning about so. Stick with me to find out what those things were if you knew here. I'm gary benbridge. Welcome aboard welcome aboard viking venus. I'm here to make it fun and easy to discover plan and enjoy unforgettable cruise vacations and is viking cruises unforgettable or not one of the things that are arrested with both before i came on cruise and during the cruise is exactly who or what is. Viking oceans like increases is an independent line it was created and is so chaired by its founder. A man called torsten haagen so viking ocean of course came from rivers they started in european rivers and then expanded to rivers around the world and then are also gains expedition. cruising delivered. Experience on viking is pretty luxury but it's not ultra luxury so probably quite comfortably competes with an fits with lines like say. Oh she anya. As amara perhaps even winstar which is pretty luxurious small ships higher level of service good quality fixtures and fittings however. It was very clear that viking has a significant difference to those lines so people who might like those lines like viking. But they'll find something very different because the experience viking is quite different though to those particular lions because at its heart has a very different philosophy. And that's because it came from riveted started with rivers not with ocean and the whole way that they approach and do cruising is pretty

The Events Leading to the Boston Molasses Disaster

"The day of tragedy. Two things happened. Which helped influence events i was that a ship arrived from cuba and transferred over six hundred thousand gallons of molasses to the tank. The molasses was heated to make it less viscous so it would be easier to transfer and the amount transferred almost completely filled the tank to the top. It was one of the few times the tank had been completely filled since it was constructed. The other thing which happened. Was that a warm front descended on boston. The temperatures went from two degrees fahrenheit or minus seventeen degrees celsius to forty degrees fahrenheit or four degrees celsius in one day. It's believed the thermal expansion of the previously cold molasses due to the increase in the temperature and the addition of warm molasses from the ship. Put enough pressure on the tank to cause it to fail catastrophically there also may have been fermentation going on inside the tank which would produce co two. Which would also create pressure at twelve thirty pm. The tank burst because of the increased temperature of the molasses and the incredible pressure. It was under in the full tank. The viscosity was quite low. When it bursts out of the tank it did so like water. It wasn't slowly pouring out like you would see molasses come out of a bottle reports. Were that the wave of molasses was twenty five feet or six meters high and traveled at thirty five miles per hour down the street. The explosion of the tank burst with the energy of eight hundred fifty sticks of dynamite rivets from the tank. Shot out like bullets lodged in buildings. The tank couldn't have burst at a worse time. Children were walking home from school for lunch and workers were out in the street. Buildings and elevated railways were hit by the flood and collapsed. Once the molasses burst forth from the tank the non newtonian nature the fluid to kick in now that it was no longer under pressure and exposed to the outside air the molasses viscosity increased and its flow. Slow dramatically once. People were caught in it. It became the fix europe that most people are accustomed to which made it very difficult to get out of the initial death. Toll was only ten people however over the next several days and weeks more bodies were found with the final body. Count reaching twenty one. The last bodies were found four months after the flood because they were swept out into the boston harbour

Several San Jose Sharks Teammates Don't Want Evander Kane Back on the Team

"Craig, if you can believe that. I feel like that. We've heard that before. Somewhere with Evander Kane surprising I don't know. I guess you know what? When? When he had left to San Jose. I You know, like, okay, so I always kind of wished the best for players. Always do you know if if a guy's got off ice issues or whatever you hope that he can figure it out and You know what I mean and grow from it right? And when he went to San Jose I thought Was good for the same as that he was gone. Um, thank Yeah. But I also thought when you know when he lands there, and Joe Thornton picks him up and brings him to his house. I think, Okay, this is going to be a a new turn for Evander Kane here because he's going to have you know a good mentor there with Jumbo and Other good leaders that they had there in San Jose. And I thought, you know what this could be beneficial for. Um, So here's to hoping that You can you can sharpen up. You know, And then here we are. And so, so Kevin Kurtz has been on our show before yesterday was reporting that Players. On San Jose. We're talking about How they don't want him back. Says the team was trying to trade Kane earlier this summer, a source says, confirming a report from the daily face off. A big part of the reason for the team to pursue a deal was canes strained relationship with many of his teammates, according to several sources, According to one source. The frustration with Kane stem from the general disrespect of team rules such as being late for practices and games. And zero consequences came, which caused ripple effect with other younger players, added the source. According to another source, it wasn't easy dealing with him this season, so We'll talk about another

Royal treatment: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry detail racism, suicidal thoughts in Oprah tell-all

"What oprah stands and the royals refuse to learn about twenty first century celebrity by judy berman. Tell me what your intention is. I'll tell you what my intention is. And let's see if we can align those. Two that oprah explained monday on cbs. This morning is what she says to everyone she interviews before the cameras start rolling in this case she was of course referring to the conversation with prince harry and meghan markle the duchess of sussex that filled a two hour primetime slot on the network the previous evening. The special drew seventeen point. One million american viewers in early ratings that as deadline pointed out adding up to a larger audience than last week's golden globes and september's emmys combined while oprah's collaborative approach to shaping interviews. Has its limitations. You wouldn't want to see an investigative reporter compare objectives with the subject of a damning expose. It proved to be a singularly effective way into the ongoing harry and meghan saga. The couple broke their dignified silence about their reasons for stepping down a senior royals and leaving the uk in an equally dignified special that riveted viewers revealed troubling new details about behind the scenes machinations at buckingham palace and supplied a powerful counter narrative to the one the firm and british tabloids had been pushing also on this morning. Tino brown called the program kryptonite to the royal family. It's like a hand. Grenade although oprah whose production company harpo produced the special and licensed it to cbs. Where a fee reported to be in these seven to nine million dollar range certainly made it look that way. Taking control of the public narrative couldn't have been easy even compared with its treatment of outsiders who've married into the royal family in the past the uk press has been brutal in its coverage of meghan and a one two punch last week a dispatch from the times of london claim that meghan had bullied and humiliated aids. Driving two of them to resign and the palace announced. It was launching an investigation into that alleged. Behavior sunday's interview cast doubt on not only that story but also just about every story that might have originated with the royals. Harry and meghan described an invisible contract between the firm and the media in which the tabloids and their reporters are wined dined and welcomed into the palace for holiday parties to encourage favourable coverage it all sounded pretty sinister. But it's worth remembering that for their part. The couple also has a cozier relationship with oprah than most subjects of the journalists whose profiling them the difference in this case and in the case of everything. That was ingenious about sunday. Special wasn't the framing as the faceless firm came off as having manipulated the media an unseen and thus noble ways and a depiction that jibes with the portrait of the house of windsor. Painted by netflix's mega popular the crown. It's exiles seemed to have nothing to hide. Oprah didn't just disclose to viewers that she knew harry and meghan personally. She opened the interview by reminiscing with the duchess about the experience of attending their wedding. The distinction isn't between tiffany bias. It's between transparency and pass in many ways what we witnessed was oprah's understanding of a shift in how credibility is established and the present versus how it was established three generations ago when the queen was a newlywed. The young elizabeth waited out bad press trusting that her refusal to enter the fray would ultimately vindicate her as the bigger person but we are in a moment when skepticism of the media is at an all time high. The public is savvier than it has ever been about. How public figures manufacture their images top tier celebrities like beyond say preferred to communicate with fans via social media channels. They can control an oprah appeared to realize the value of an open conversation on prime time broadcast. Television was in the ability to create the impression. One that for the record. I see no reason to doubt that. Meghan and harry were spinning the facts so much as they were clearing the air air that the firm would for reasons implied to sell fish if not malicious preferred to leave murky for viewers who feel entitled to know every detail about their favorite celebrities lives and for whom openness is a prerequisite for loyalty transparency. Worked that was due in large part to the power of the story. Meghan and harry had to tell as well as to their unprecedented eloquence and candor on issues of race and mental health. But you can't underestimate the importance of how that story was told that is how oprah managed to align her intentions and those her subjects along with being two of the most famous people on the planet. She and meghan were after all to women of color discussing racism. Gas lighting and other third rail topics in front of an audience of millions from the tranquil outdoor setting their socially distanced conversation to the outfits. They chose a fluey floral for the radiantly. Pregnant duchess of sussex a muted mov for the queen of all media to the calm tone all three participants adopted. Every part of the special felt intentional for a world of crown fans who we know were on. Oprah's mind because the show came up in the interview. It all contributed to a conclusion to this particular episode of the british monarchy. That couldn't have been more familiar. An institution that digs in its heels at any sign of progress or accountability see prince. Andrew doesn't slow the march of time it becomes an artifact.

Harry and Meghan detail royal struggles, from discussions of baby's skin tone to suicidal thoughts

"Oh what an interview. Harry and meghan shocked everyone last night during their explosive. Sit down with oprah winfrey and the royal family may never be the same again. I'm going to try not to yell like crazy. Because i've been screaming all morning ever since i watched this last night. There is so much to discuss. We head to begin our top royals. Melanie bromley to the show. As oh my gosh i. It's almost like we don't even know where to begin. So let's do this before we dive. And let's take a look at the top bombshells of the night who could be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark skinned might be when he's born. What here's a conversation with you. With harry about how dark your baby is going to be. Potentially and what that would mean or look like conversation. I'm never going to shy. But at the time the time it was oak ridge. I respect sharks. Can you tell us what the question was. I'm not comfortable with sharing. Is he taking your calls. Now is a lot of work through that. I feel really let down. Because he's been through something similar. I always love him. But there's a lot of the top. I just had that conversation with harry. I don't want to be alive anymore. Yeah it was like these. Are the thoughts. That i'm having in the middle of the night. That are very clear. And i'm scared because this is very real. Did you make kate cry now. So where did that come from. It was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something but she owned it and she apologize and flowers and a note apologizing. There's this invisible. What's what's what's termed or referred to as the invisible contracts behind closed doors between the institution and the tabloids if you as a family member a willing to wine dine and give access to these reporters than you will get better press. I think there's a reason that these tabloids have holiday parties at the palace. Okay now before we get into everything. We need to lease comment. That this part. The palace has not commented on the interview. Okay lots of mixed feelings about this. Where do we start. Let's do this first impressions now first impression. My impression is that this is the most damaging interview that we've ever seen about the royal family if you thought diana's interview in nineteen thousand nine hundred was bad that was just the accusation or talking about infidelity. This is way bigger. Somebody just blew up the role side. Yes who would think oprah tyler. Perry could expose the monarchy. I thought she was ready. She was ready ready. This has been a two year plus experience for them and they finally got to tell their side of the story because as we heard she was silenced. She said she was silence. My was literally. I was just screaming at least with melissa heard it. I was like screaming. I just was in shock. I i thought she was gonna take off the gloves and do a fight but no no no. She had those gloves on. She was like. I don't know this phrase phrases that she dropped every bombshell that she possibly could have and it was one after another we kept saying like. That's the biggest. I mean we were just riveting. This is going to go down in history with all the other ones. I mean we're talking race. We talking family problems. Everything i was like. This is so good. Okay back to you how to do exactly the same. It was so shocking. Every single thing that came out of her mouth and you have to bear in mind. The royal family exists on this idea of mystery. We know a little bit about what's going on behind palace who we don't know everything. What meghan and harry yesterday to people who were in the inner sack who did is that exposed the lot they said. This is no fairytale. this is not what you've ever thought it was. This was awful. It was like being in a

Biden, Dems prevail as Senate OKs $1.9T virus relief bill

"Senate. Democratic leaders have reached an agreement over unemployment benefits with moderate democratic senator joe manchin ending a nine hour. Standoff threatened to derail action on president biden's covert relief bill. The agreement would extend the existing three hundred dollar weekly unemployment benefit through september the sixth and it offers tax forgiveness and to ten thousand two hundred dollars in unemployment benefits for those who make less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year in a statement released tonight. Senator manchin said we have reached a compromise that enables the economy to rebound quickly while also protecting those receiving unemployment benefits from being hit with unexpected tax bills. Next year joining us. Now on this breaking news democratic. Senator tim kaine of virginia he is a member of the senate budget committee. And the senate armed services committee senator. Kaine good to see you this evening on one hand. I'm not quite sure what what was happening. In the senate for nine hours on the other hand we have crossed an important hurdle at this point and are moving toward the passage of this bill. Tell me what is going on malley. You're right. I mean we've got fifty democratic senators and we need every one of their votes to get this bill which will do so much good for americans to president by his desk. Senator manchin hannah concern about the way the unemployment insurance benefits were structured. And he stuck to his guns and that concern was not my concern. I i really liked the bill as it came over from the house. I think we made it. Stronger of senator manchin needed some additional adjustments to get there. But now we're there and we're gonna rocket four and they're going to be dozens. Maybe hundreds of amendments that republicans will offer tonight and tomorrow but democrats. We have linked arms with president biden said. The american public needs this relief and they needed soon. And we're gonna stay at our desks and tell sometime over the weekend. We send this bill back to a house for a quick vote so the president by to get it next week four unexpected. It's obvious why so. Many americans support this bill. It's not actually a partisan thing it's money that people need in their pockets. It is overwhelmingly popular amongst americans. It is even supported by the majority of republican voters. What's going on. what's what's the reason for. Fifty republicans not voting in favor of this and by the way. No republicans voted in favor of it in the house alley. My my gut is this. I think they've made a strategic decision and remember just replay. The tape back to the beginning of the obama biden administration. They just sort of decided no matter what. The new president offers to rescue the american economy. We're going to be against it. I will say this. This is a bill. That is just chock full of of provisions that republicans have offered in past years. It's chock full of provisions that are desired by republican governors. And mayors as you point out it's full of provisions that are popular republican voters and when it's implemented it's gonna do enormous good for republicans and independents and democrats so they made a strategic decision. That and i can't put myself in their shoes about why they don't want to be four but will be able to bring the final bill out and show you. How much bipartisan Agreement there is this bill. The democrats are just riveted upon the fact. We're still ten million jobs down from where we were laying out here. We've lost five hundred thousand people. Were not out of the woods yet. We're not gonna go slow to go fast. Climb out of this crisis.

Is The Sperm Race A Fairy Tale?

Is The Sperm Race A Fairy Tale?

"Tell me a little bit about what you learned way back when about how conception works well. They showed us this video that described conception as a kind of obstacle course where the sperm little tadpole looking things and when they enter the vagina during this hostile environment. And they've done fight their way through all these obstacles and make it to the egg and the sperm. That reaches the egg wins. Kind of how it was told. Yeah that's pretty standard. It's similar to what i was taught to. And i spoke to lisa campbell angle stein. She's a reproductive bioethicist and she pointed out that we use really gendered language to describe this biology. She calls it a fertilization tale. So the sperm is this shining knight. Who's there to save the aig damsel in distress. And the sperm has all the agency the sperm is on a mission the sperm is fighting off other sperm to be the one to conquer the egg. Where's the egg is just sort of passively floating around waiting for the night and doesn't do anything itself. How does exactly what they told us. Yeah and lisa examined tons of textbooks at all levels from middle school to medical school for this kind of bias and she found some pretty wild stuff. For example sperm had this little hat like structure called the acronym textbooks described it as a motorcycle. Mean they could have called. It did horseback riding home at a ski how they could call the any type of helmets motorcycle helmet rights and that conjures up images of masculinity islanders. Tough guy weathers well clearly once again. The patriarchy finds a way but in this case. Isn't the story. exactly what happens. Biologically how it all goes down. Actually not at all. Oh no right. I am ready to go back to school. I want this post talk. Talk ariella let's do it. Only while buckle up today on the show go back to school to revisit the sperm race narrative and look at the ways that the edge and the reproductive tract plan active role in this process. I'm ariella zabidi. And i'm emily kwong. You are listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from npr. Alright classes in session. We're going back to school shortwave. School the best kind of school yes to learn about conception yeah and just to be clear. Today we're talking about this process as it plays out internally but a lot of folks conceived through the reproductive technologies like ibf. Yeah which are very cool. Okay just to recap. When i was taught conception in school it was basically described as a survivor style. Sperm race but ariella. You're telling me that this is a lie. yes yes. There are a few really big problems with this narrative when sperm i arrive in the vagina. They can't really race. I talked to jimmy heison. She's a biology professor at smith college. They don't have enough energy to make it to the side of conception. They don't have enough directional but isn't that what the cute little tales or for like don't the sperm use them to swim yet. Details do give sperm some swimming ability. But that's not a complete picture. The sperm are getting there faster than they could all on their own. And we've seen in rats and other mammals that even dead sperm can reach the lopion tubes so it seems like sperm. Don't rely that much on their own mobility. So are they getting their. The reproductive tract is bringing them along. Oh that is amazing. Okay how is the reproductive tract. Doing that so i talked to kristen hook. She's an evolutionary biologist. And she told me it's doing this tons of ways by changing the thickness of the reproductive tract fluid. Just like if we were swimming in a swimming pool with water versus a swimming pool of honey. You're gonna move differently in these different fluids or with contractions summer to contractions in your stomach after you've had a big meal or whatnot to move your food through your intestines so it's like the sperm are on one of those moving sidewalks y-yeah they're being transported along eventually reaching the philippian tubes. Okay and what happens after that. So the sperm. Start to move their tails more intensely. Which makes those pretty useless movements. We talked about earlier. More powerful research just that fluids in the reproductive tract kind of give the spur more energy. Think of it like taking a bath in coffee one. That's dreamy to the idea that the reproductive tract literally gives the sperm. Their strike is giving me strength right now. That is fantastic. I know emily. The official name for this process is hyper activation. Though that's riveting and there's even more the reproductive tract also has to prepare the sperm for one. It eventually meets the egg right now. The sperm is a little overdressed for the occasion. It's got a layer of stuff on that prevents it from binding the egg and molecules in the reproductive tract helps strip off layer so that the sperm is ready to bind. Ooh la la naked sperm. Okay and emily remember the sperm. Don't have is they have no idea where the heck they're going so the egg provides them with a gps it releases these super attractive chemicals that show the sperm where to go. Oh so it's like leaving breadcrumbs for them to follow. Yeah and you have to realize that philippian tubes aren't this straightforward path. It's really complex and winding there. There are tons of little crevices so without those crumbs. The sperm probably wouldn't know where to go. We were taught to think of it as a racetrack. Right but kristen. We know better now if you wanna go with a racetrack idea at least recognized that it's a dynamic race track so it's not like the german audubon. It's more like You know like more like a rainbow road where you have twists and turns and places to fall off and there are checkpoints that you get ask for your license registration and proof of insurance. I'm sorry proof of insurance. What does that mean honestly. That's not too far off from reality. And this brings me to may be the coolest part of all of this. Remember that hostile environment you described earlier. Yeah but you know. I was brainwashed back then in health class and i and i regret saying that because it sounds like the reproductive tract is actually far more helpful than hostile here. You totally but it is true that there are tons of obstacles along the way that seemed to be counterproductive. Like at one point these big immune cells surround the sperm and literally. Eat them. No that's terrifying. Yeah you don't want to be the sperm in that face off so it makes sense that you and me and teachers everywhere described this as a hostile environment but now starting to realize that these obstacles the actually have a purpose. It works to separate sperm. That are dysfunctional. From those that are functional works to separate debris that enters into the reproductive track with quotas and it separates the wheat from the chaff. Shall we say and then it takes what it needs or wants to the site of

Making It RAIN With Tara Brach

"Nice to see you and you. I think this is the second time we've met. The first time we met in my memory was backstage at some meditation event. And i remember being a little hesitant because i saw you there and i thought i fun of her a little bit in my book and i didn't know how is going to go but then you gave me a big hug. So a where are we with that. Are you mad at me for who is actually a really great experience for me. Because you know everyb- it's famed disrepute and you know and you made fun of me. Some and you also appreciated the thing that most matter to me which is the practice of rain and figured you know. I can survive this. Well i've talked about this a lot on the show of my apologies to folks who've had to hear me hold forth on this too much but i got three. Do you know what a three sixty review is. If you've ever heard yeah. I got one and basically all the people in or many of the people in my life anonymously commented on my strengths and weaknesses. In one of the weaknesses was being judgmental. You i think were really an early victim of mine on the scored in the meditation world and there was a message for me too. Because i'm basically out to wake up and be able to present things in a way that are gonna reach people and i suspected for you. My way was had too much of a A kind of ui to sweet flavor. And i realize oh. There's going to be a message. People like dan that that's the way they receive it. And i think as we keep growing we just get more flexible ways. We present things so there was room for that. Yes i agree. I think yeah you have a way of talking about this that works for hundreds of thousands of people my way of talking about it or thinking about it or acting it out in the world is very different and that's the importance of having many folks out there talking about the dharma on this me too me too. It's really exciting to me actually. And it's exciting when the dialogues happened because basically we're free when we all stretch say more about the. Yeah the more first of all a teacher. The more flexibility. I have in how i present things. In the more sensitive. I am to the different ways. People receive things the more effective i can be and as a practitioner for instance this morning. I was talking to my husband about a book that right now reading for the twentieth time in. It's i am that by screener sergey data and it's a book about nonfuel reality about seeing how really constantly looking at. How am i getting identified right in this moment. Like really seeing past the coagulation of self recognizing okay. I'm not this particular personality. I'm not this body and recognizing a larger sense of being us and so we were talking about that. And i then i just said you know that is fantastic when my mind is quiet enough but if i'm caught in some anxiety for me to say oh i'm not this. Anxiety actually is a subtle way of pushing it away and what's more important as for me to feel the wave of anxiety and in some way. Okay this belongs. This is part of this is a wave in the ocean you know and to actually feel it and in opening to it and not resisting the identification actually dissolves so the pathway taught in the book that i'm riveted by right. This moment isn't the pathway. At any given moment our will at work for many people when they're stuck in a certain way so it just having that keeping the whole domain of practice fresh so in any given moment. There's a an intuitive way to respond to what arising now that actually deepens freedom and not going by road really is is actually what works in the most deep ways. So you talk about implicitly. A change that. I've seen you make in my observation of you as a teacher. Since the first time. I saw you speak until reading your most recent book so in the teaching of rain are a i n which we're going to walk through in detail. The first time. I heard you speak the n stood for non identification. Now you teach it as nurture which in your last answer. I think. I heard you say that nurturing leads to the non identification if you can be cool with whatever's coming up and you mentioned anxiety and you've talked about personally the things i'd in your own life if you're gonna be cool with anxiety if you can you know. Be warm in the face of this unwelcomed visitor in your own mind. That can ultimately i if i hearing you correctly. Correct me if i'm wrong. Lead you to seeing. Oh yeah this is just a visitor. It isn't me that's exactly right and if we bypass the nurturing and it's not like every time something comes up we have to put our hand on our hard and offer all sorts of phrases of self compassion but there are times that bringing a kindness and a warmth to watch their offense the resistance in a way that were embodied and yet more spacious and if we skip over it if we go to quickly to sing oh this isn't me. I'm not identified. It's actually a subtle kind of dissociation. We're not really embodied so the more full freedom is to be with the wave and realize your oceanus through the process of being with the wave which for most of us take some quality of kindness. Our compassion

Impeachment Managers Show New Graphic Security Footage Of Capitol Riot

"Note as the video begins. We are seeing the inside view as the mob approaches from outside and beats the windows. Endorse the images were riveting. Some senators leaned forward to get a better look identifying themselves in graphic videos of legislators sprinting down capitol hallways and members narrowly escaping out. Back doors. others looked away. One senator was so shaken that he appeared to tear up. That was the scene on wednesday as house. Impeachment managers kicked off their case against former president. Donald trump by making senators relive their worst nightmare. The january sixth insurrection at the very place they were sitting the. Us capitol waves were made when this never before seen footage was presented officer. Goodman passes senator mitt romney and direct him to turn around in order to get to safety on the first floor. Just be meet them. The mob had already started to search for the senate chamber minutes. After seeing that video mitt. Romney told reporters quote that was overwhelmingly distressing and emotional politically speaking. No one appears to be struggling more with the trial. Then bill cassidy who switched his vote. Tuesday declaring the impeachment trial as constitutional on wednesday the louisiana republican spent most of his time either furiously taking notes or pacing in the back of the room occasionally letting allowed size slip and when house impeachment managers played that video. He was seen shaking his head often and crossing his arms clearly disturbed by the footage. Later that night he told the press pool quote. I'm here to uphold the constitution. i'm upholding it. i'm doing. My job was his reaction surprising. Our own burgess everett reports. Not really he writes. That's par for the course for cassidy who's made a reputation. As an outlier. He's not a trump loyalist. Like lindsey graham or rand. Paul now cassidy is torn between what many of his constituents want critics everett notes have dumped him quote psycho bill and what he feels is his duty and the white house breaks its silence on the impeachment. Trial finally a word from camp biden until now biden and his senior advisors have avoided commenting on trial but cedric richmond. The president's senior adviser told the new york times yesterday that cassidy's vote to declare the trial. Constitutional was a quote profile in courage. Remember richmond is the same guy who famously said of cassidy. Quote dude is weird. Oh how the tables have turned because richmond is now adjusting his opinion telling the times. That cassidy has quote always been independent. A little insight into why biden is keeping his lips. Shut on you know one of the biggest stories in the nation right now. The associated press reports that white house. Aides say that behind closed doors weighing in on the trial would be a lose lose for biden that. Ap story says biden's aides think throwing his hat in the ring would just draw the focus away from trump's alleged misconduct and onto biden's own views but that strategy could change because the reports that no one is expecting biden silence to last forever especially if there is an acquittal a move that could push trump back into the spotlight and on cable interviews and inflame the country deeper.

Creativity in your Home

"I want to think about what it means to be creative. Within the walls of your home as well as using creative decision making to morph your home into a true expression of those living there and as a result a highly functional home that is aesthetically pleasing to you in an article titled the five habits of highly creative people on martha stewart dot com ashley page explores the meaning of creativity. So i wanted to read you an excerpt from it. Understanding the meaning of creativity attempting to define creativity can leave you. More than a little stumped. It's kind of mysterious. You know what it is mostly but you're likely unable to describe it if someone asks you to. It's important however to understand the essence of creativity in order to hone it. The interpretations vary but danny gregory author of art. Before breakfast a zillion ways to be more creative. No matter how busy you are defines it as creating your own order. Creativity is the act of shaping. The mush of the world around us into something he says. I'm not talking about getting compulsive with a label maker and color coded files. I'm talking about having a vision of what you want things to be like and moving toward it. We live in a natural state of chaos. Gregory says which is why your desk may be messy or your calendar filled with scribbles. Creativity is sorting through the calamity. According to todd henry author of the accidental creative. How to be brilliant at a moment's notice. Creativity boils down to a simple game of solutions. Creativity is problem solving. He says a designer sees a problem and solves it visually. A poet does so with words and an entrepreneur. does it by creating a business that meets a need. All of these are creative acts. It's a common mistake to confuse. Creativity with art. Henry explains and this may paint a damaging picture of your creative self. It's a shame because people think they're not creative simply because they can't paint or play music he says in reality. Anyone who has solved problems regularly is exhibiting creativity end quote. I love this sort because many people choose to live in a space that was created for the person before them because they don't give proactive thought to the puzzle of the home. They're living in and then they settled in and forgot to make it. There's but their home never feels good and they aren't able to put their finger on. Why maybe it's because you're living in someone else's space if you haven't touched every surface and thought about all the bits or if you look around and you can't really tell much about yourself or your personality by the walls the furniture or photos you haven't made it a priority. Either you make it a priority and make it an emotional energetic and physical space for yourself or you. Don't your space can light you up or make you feel stagnant. You live there. You make the decision. Nps by making no decision. You are actually making a decision to not pursue your most genuine life. Your most genuine expression is saying no. Thanks i m not important to me. Everyone has experienced different hardships and challenges in their lives. Some far more extreme than others and those stories of hardships and how you elbowed your way or in some cases army crawled your way through them to come out on. The other side is riveting. We can all identify with struggle and often that struggle is. What eventually leads to strength to resilience and to creativity.

Wrapping up Genesis 1-11

"Today we're recapping genesis one through eleven. So let's just start with this. Let's it'd be good you just kind of a very high level recap and summary Jt how does the story of genesis start off. Give us the first couple of chapters in the beginning. God creates heaven and the earth. So we see this god who Implicit in this story has existed. Always he is eternal he is all powerful and just by the word of his power. He speaks creation into existence. Anything that we would see. Physical and spiritual is created by god. We we walk through. How he he then forms and then he fills and how these creating this world and he's calling good this world is is is made for To to to demonstrate his goodness and beauty. the pinnacle of this creation is image bearers genesis. One twenty six one twenty six to twenty eight talks. About how adam. Adam or humanity both adam and eve are created to represent and reflect the goodness and beauty of god to all of his creation that he has just made because he says it's very good. Yeah but instead of reflecting guide they choose to rebel against god Trying to subvert his word in his authority by inverting the created order. They listen to the voice of the serpent. They eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They end up naked in a shame. They have not just eating the wrong fruit from the wrong tree. But they rebelled against the lord who created them and holds the whole earth together and in doing so they find themselves alienated from alias. A true knowledge of self alienated from one another and alienated from the natural order. And we hear that they're going to be consequences because of this rebellion but there is also hope In the light of this rebellion. That god is going to send one through the seed of the woman who would crush the head of the seed of the serpent and we end that fall account with that story of rebellion with a just a glimmer of hope. That eve is the mother of all living. And that god has covered then in a covered their nakedness and their shame But yet things continue to spiral out with the story of cain and abel where the sons of adam and eve cain and abel cain kills abel and there is an increased exile meaning kanus scattered. And he's supposed to live scattered and live in exile really as the consequence of his sinful rebellion the world continues to just become increasingly wicked increasingly evil which brings us the story of noah. Yeah so we're giving to genealogies. Show us that there's this unrighteous line and then there is this righteous line We're told that people begin to call on the lord as things get darker and then we find ourselves face to face with noah who is a man of righteousness in a time of great darkness The most famous boat and all of history at the command of the lord and he and eight family members are brought through a d. creation And a recreation narrative they're carried through the waters of death to life on the other side thus setting up one of biggest themes that we see in scripture And then on the other side of it we find that while judgment has been meted out on the human race. Unfortunately the sin problem lives within humans and has been carried in the heart of noah and in the hearts of his family and so We're we received the even in these early chapters that A great deliver will still be needed. One who is not Carrying sin in his inward being Most moses gives us the picture of noah falling into sin he then gives us the implications of this in a way that is telling his original audience. This is why you are going to meet these great enemies as you enter the land of canaan. so it's a story for them and for them but it's also a story for us in for now as we evaluate our great enemies the world the flesh and the devil and how they'd be set us every day Were then issued from that story of noah and the flood into The table of nations. Everyone's most riveting and favorite passage in scripture Which is showing us what happens. Actually after the tower of babel how humankind is spread across the face of the earth and And is now speaking in many different languages as we see At the tower of babel god frustrating their efforts to be city builders on their own terms. God will have a city built. He will have. It built according to his terms and no matter what opposition is set up by humankind seeking to do now in In in congress or with one another what was first done in the garden. He will reign and rule supreme

"For Britain from the European Union apparently being imminent. The Brexit negotiations were not top of the agenda as EU leaders met in Brussels. Difficult discussions on climate change were the number one priority on overnight wrangling did result in all members signing up to an ambitious new target. To cut greenhouse gas emissions. It means you countries plan to reduce those emissions by 55% on 1990 levels by the end of this decade. The eventual aim is to become carbon neutral by the middle of the century. Home Rivet. Connick was a chief political advisor to the U. N Paris Agreement. He's now with the climate think tank called Global Optimism. Well, look, I mean, we've made an enormous amount of progress on climate this year, and we should bear in mind where we thought we might be at this point, and we're a lot further along than we could be. All of this depends on Can we get to net zero before 2050, which is what science tells us very clearly, we need to do To avoid runaway climate change on what's been agreed here. 55% by 2030 is a big step in that direction and is consistent with that trajectory. So, like so much in climate, it is impressive and ambitious, but ultimately needs to go further. But yes, I think this is something that we should broadly celebrate so too ambitious for

And as you start doing it, she doesn't go away. She she helps and so let's go back to our friends in Shadyside. So zika and Kiernan what have you decided to do? Well, we're going to talk about that. Yes. Okay. Do you have any thoughts I think perhaps we could watch to see who enters and exits for time see if there are guards of any sort. See if anything else shady is going on. I suppose we can certainly do that. Although if this is the sort of business place that we think it is it might not be worth staking it out until later this evening that's off and evening. Yes, I can also turn into some sort of small Critter and wonder about inside. Oh, that's a wonderful idea. I suppose the question. You should be should I do that now during the day or would they be more likely to find something out in the evening as well? Perhaps you could investigate for a bit now and then we can get off. Thing that we have scheduled and then maybe come back tonight or tomorrow evening to investigate when it's dark. All right. All right, fine off be careful always took. Okay. So when you guys are going to leave Shadyside and then come back later, is that oh, no, I think I think I think I'm going to turn into like a mouse or something right now and sneak in and take a mouse. Look around. Okay. All righty here in well, she's mousing around. What are you doing? I will keep my eyes open for any faith enters who leaves if there are guards or Bodyguards of some sort and just take a look around to see if there's any Wildlife if they're like the general area who's coming and going and who's sort of lingering? Okay. Yeah. I mean as you've been hanging around here, there's a fair amount of traffic in this part of the city you get the impression that that you know, this is probably an airbag. That maybe Comes Alive a little bit more later in the day. But for right now, it seems that nobody's really coming in and out of this specific apartment in this building. Are there any animals around that's a good question. There's a couple of squirrels and the trees but that's about it. I mean some birds fly by but nothing's really Landing. Okay, I'll look for them. If there's a squirrel nest look for some rules that maybe have been here a little while and I'll I will try to speak communicate with them with my speak with animals spell them. Give me a survival. Oh, I did poorly. I guess 6 in the trees near the building. There are definitely do appear to be any squirrels nests. Okay. The occasional squirrel go by I mean there is one in a Tree near you sure I will attempt to communicate with that one. Okay, or that family family off. So you start talking to the squirrel squirrel at first is is not generally squirrel, you know, when it comes in contact with a person is going to print off bolt sure. But what do you ask I want to know if it saw the dead body or the whatever it understands dead person dead man in the part and if it's saw who took the body away, okay and a squirrel can sort of described that being okay so long this squirrel indicates to you that in the prior evening it witnessed. Someone takes something out of this cart. It was the same size as Thera thing that was taken out of the cart. Okay, the same size as me know if the thing in the car was driven. Okay, then it was just a small size of Durban. Okay. So yeah, and yep. Could it be safe? It's it's hard cuz he's a squirrel right? She doesn't know, Legends. It's like you think he means wage couldn't see face, but he kind of terms that no face. Okay, you're like, okay, if something Durban size either had no face or you couldn't see his face to face was covered. Her face was covered. Well space was probably covered because who doesn't you think to yourself you have you have seen people with no face Jake? Yes, right, but nobody else here would see people with no face, right and zika. You are a mouse and being a mouse were very small. I have probably a good hour in the shape. I have two hours, but I'd like to keep it to one hour. So I will use that to be very very cautious take any undue risk. As I wonder about presumably inside I'm assuming there's no reason I can't slip under the door frame or whatever. Yeah. Yeah, you can totally slip into the doorframe you go into the doorframe and you see thier case going up and a little like a drawing room with a kitchen, you know, you'd say a kitchenette in today's parlance table a chair a fireplace. There's a lot of like long scarves and frilly things and costume jewellery and little adornments. They're very sad looking. This is little like a area that someone might entertain a guest briefly off right about four things that would seem to be out of place in an establishment such as this. Okay. Give me a perception roll. That is 18. Okay down here. You don't really notice anything out of the ordinary doesn't look like this area has been used much lately. Sure. Then I will start to walk quietly and cautiously Scamper up the stairs. All right, you scamper up the stairs and you see a closed door at the top of the stairs home. Show me under that. Okay. Give me a stealth roll. Ooh, that's not good. I'm assuming there's no nothing. I don't really like bonus. Yeah for your size. I'll give you advantage of life. That is wow same role. So that's a 7. Okay. All right. So you shoot under the door and you start looking around. You see the woman. First of all the room is off. The walls are painted. This pink garish color. There is a covered lamp with a very very kind of mood lighting set up here. There's a perfumey smell. Yep. There's a lot the first thing that hits you when you come in if it's just perfume. It's just too much too much perfume, right there is a bed. The bed is made it has the nicest sheets that a person can afford. There's a wardrobe and then there's a little vanity table with a mirror. The lady is sitting at the vanity table and she's just staring into the mirror when you come in. It's not like she's doing makeup or anything. She's just staring into the mirror. Okay, and give me a quick perceptions to catch something. That is a 12. Okay, into the room. You see all that real quick.

Tom Rivet, Karnak and Cristiana Figueras told us that optimism stubborn optimism is the key to how we approach global warming. It is always at the moments ofthe greatest darkness that we actually need the brightest light. But Cristiana didn't always feel this way. Back in 2010. She was appointed as the executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is quite a mouthful. Stickley. What That means is that basically what that means is that she had to bring 195 countries to a consensus on how to manage climate change. It was actually an impossible task. It was a very doom and gloom mood, a sense of overwhelmed a sense of helplessness. That's because just six months earlier The negotiations for a global climate agreement had totally broken down. People had tried to come to an agreement in Copenhagen and failed and they had concluded it's too late anyway to address climate change. We're just gonna have to accept the ravages that is going to bring And so this was the mood when you gave that, I think was your first press conference on the job. Yeah, the press conference that I remember best. I've done many press conferences, but this is the one.

We are a ll facing one challenge, which is how we collectively going to deal with this moment. Now The best outcome of this is that we as humanity, remember that we can no longer afford the luxury of feeling powerless. Like the rest of the world. The Ted stages now happening remotely. So Tom Rivet. Karnik delivered his talk from those woods near his home. Right now. We are coming through one of the most challenging periods in the lives ofthe most of us. The global pandemic has been frightening whether personal tragedy has been involved or not. Also shaken our belief that we are powerless in the face of great change. In the space of a few weeks, we mobilized to the point where half of humanity took drastic action to protect the most vulnerable Friday morning. The 20th since my shift yesterday I came back in to find the emergency department full. It was like a war room in the respiratory report room. So many people trying to figure out what a summit to take entire to him. Just been running around. Unfortunately, it's not over. We're still going up. And so I'm still going backto work tomorrow. The's people are caregivers and nurses who have been helping humanity face Corona virus covert 19. Now that's interesting because it shows us that humans are capable of taking dedicated and sustained action even when they can't control the outcome. But it leaves us with another challenge The climate crisis. Make no mistake. A climate crisis will be orders of magnitude worse than the pandemic. If we do not take the action that we consistently take to avert a tragedy that we see coming towards us There's a line in your Ted talk that kind of hit me like a brick wall where you warn us that the climate crisis will be worse than the pandemic. You know, we're just so in the pandemic right now that it's hard to take the longer view on that. Make the case for why we should. Yeah, I mean, one simple answer to that question is that the climate crisis will be permanent. The pandemic is, you know a major global emergency that we are right in the throes of right now, but we will find a vaccine. We are learning about this virus all the time. We are working on social measures to reduce it spread. We're working on vaccines. Those will take months or maybe years, but we'll come to that point and will come through it. And world will return to some form of normality, although will probably look quite different in the climate emergency the climate crisis if we allow ourselves to pass these tipping points After which we begin to lose control of the climate system itself because certain things about the planet changed like when the sea ice reduces it exposes the dark water underneath that dark water absorbs more sunlight, which leads to more sea ice lost. So you get these feedback loops where it becomes runaway, so you'd lose control of the climate system. If we get to that point We can't find a cure for that. That's just the planet flipping into a different, hottest state..

"Rogers, television show host. He did a TV show for kids mister Rogers neighborhood, which you probably all remember from the late sixties until, gosh, like the mid eighties. I think it's a fantastic documentary. Fred Rogers is an enigmatic man. He's an ordain minister, and he has this very combing very gentle presence, which is very easy to make fun of. But then you kind of can't really make fun of him because he so genuine and he so genuinely nice and gentle that you kind of don't want to mess it up. You. Kinda wanna let them just be as perfect as he is. So the big question in the documentary, is it probes into his life talks about his childhood about his marriage about, you know, his inner struggles, and the big question in the documentary that keeps coming up is, is he actually like that in real life? Is he secretly just like this raving jerk? Or did he go through like a dark phase? Or is he just genuinely like a person who really wants to do good in the world? And the answer is yes, he is. He is just like that. All this friends say that about him. His wife says that about him. His co worker say that about him. It's a really amazing movie because not only is the talk about Fred Rogers. It also talks about the climate of public television when it was first starting and the fact that like the Nixon administration tried to cut funding. There was also a lot of political stuff going on in the late sixties assassinations the Vietnam war, and he managed to. Bring that into the show in a way that brought kids into the conversation. So he spends a lot of time the children, and he talks to the children about what bothers them and what their fears are and what their greatest fears are, and then manages to write skits and songs and monologues that talk about those things to kids. Oh, it's really amazing. My favorite part is that the the movie goes into all of his alter egos, which he puts if you remember the show, he shows up in his apartment and then the trolley goes through the wall, and you follow the trolley, and then you're in the land of make believe in the land of make believe is all characters on the show, and it's populated by puppets, and he does the voices for all the puppets. So all the puppets have very distinct personalities. And each one of those personalities could be mapped to somebody in his life and a few of them can be mapped to his different alter egos. Like when he's angry, he's king Friday when he's a child. He's Daniela tiger. It's really amazing. Got to see this movie.

I'm a little late to this, but my recommendation this week is Florence. It's an interactive. Mobile app tells a story about personal growth and love and loss and wired about this back in March.

"And now it's time for our recommendations for longtime listeners. This is the part of the podcast eg- no in love where we talk about the stuff in our daily lives that is really special and that we would like to share with you. And sometimes these are tech recommendations. Sometimes they have absolutely nothing to do with tech because your brain needs break. Our brain needs a break. It's lots of fun. So I'll go first this week. If you have been listening to the gadget lab podcast for a while, you may remember that. I recommended an apple while back called week Roque. It sends me a notification five times a day to remind me that I'm going to die. And that includes a quote which can either be uplifting and meaningful or sometimes they're just graphic descriptions of what happens when you die. It's great. I love that app. We started a podcast this month which is called the week podcast, and it is delightful. This is a podcast about life and death and everything in between an it's hosted by the same guy who started the week croak up. I will say one caveat is at the audio, quality is really poor. These are not like professional podcasters, but the concept I think is just really solid. They've had. Conversations with philosophers about sort of the philosophy of how to live a meaningful life so that you're prepared for death. They've had conversations with palliative care nurses about sort of conversations that you can have with people for their dying. Like it's just really good. And again, I think like part of the reason I loved the, we croak op is that it gives you this little jolt in the middle of the day. Maybe you're scrolling through Instagram or scrawl, scrolling through Twitter and you get this notification, it's like, hey, just don't forget you're going to die. And for me, that helps me live my life on my phone and off my phone more meaningfully. So.

"It's a function of being complicated, and it's a function of having powerful windows ten machine. I mean, that's not like it had always been limited to PC gaming, master race people for better for worse. And a lot of people went out and bought PC's to be able to get in to VR. But this is the thing that democratize is fully immersive VR for the very first time. Which isn't important unimportant point. I think we need to recognize so it's four hundred dollars. If I buy one, how do we get games on it and what games can I get on it? So this. So this is wonderful question right because then we get into the the real distinction in the burgeoning VR platform wars, right? Because you've got Google and they have a daydream platform which hasn't been adopted by many people, but seemed it's very open source in all the principles that make Android owners, love, Android are being applied to this particular VR content platform. Then you have the HDZ vibe, which is like, hey, if it's on steam, you can play it. It's a huge marketplace. And then you have some other things as well. But then you have Oculus which has always been a bit of a walled garden. Now you can get steam games onto an Oculus headset. If that's a piece, if it's a PC powered headset, but now that you are effectively owning a Facebook Oculus device that is completely self contained your game library that you might have on your computer and you can get game. A bunch of different ways for you can't necessarily get those onto your Oculus quest. So the walls got a little higher and a little more opaque around the garden. So you're actively from what we know now you're going to be isolated to Oculus store and it's affected kind of like a an XBox versus please Asian kind of situation where Oculus funds developers and get some platform exclusives, but there will be some things that might be exclusives, and you might not be able to play those on the Oculus quest. But because Facebook has been sinking so much money into this from the day, they bought Oculus the company in two thousand fourteen, they're making sure that they're going to have a library and content ecosystem that's vibrant as they possibly can make it so that people want to buy and use the stuff that they can get there. But there is this question of kind of exclusionary slash exclusive content access. Well, Peter Euboea waste to have you on the show and not plug your book. Oh God, I wrote a book. It's about VR, isn't it? Called? It's called huger presence. How virtual reality is changing human connection, intimacy and the limits of ordinary life. It is not about the technology. It's not the technical side of the are it. It explains things like six degrees of freedom, but it is. It is one hundred percent for the lay reader, but it takes the first two years of experimentation in VR and at extrapolates from those to investigate how presence that phenomenon of really feeling like you're there, how that changes interpersonal dynamics inside VR and what that means for the way that we are together inside and out. I will say that it is very good. Peter is both the beautiful writer and has lots of funny bits in there, so thank you. Oh, and is there a? Is there looking filial code that people can append to the end of the Amazon varies. It's it's bay. Basically anywhere you get books you, you can get it if you want links, easy links. And I think all the affiliate links somehow track did HarperCollins, which is the publisher. You can go to future presence, book dot com and do that. I'm sure that would make them happy, not.

"And then they put it on for a few minutes or maybe as long as twenty minutes. And then they say that was pretty cool and they put it off and then no one ever asked about it again, and I'm pretty sure those people don't run out and buy one in majority of them have not got out in their own. So I don't know, is this the thing that's going to be VR mainstream? It's it's four hundred dollars ninety nine yet which is essentially that's the price of. Game console the price of the rift headset, right? It's just you're essentially buying a rift and you don't need to also by eight hundred to fifteen hundred dollar PC to run it off. The question about is this the thing that is going to tip VR into a mainstream device as an interesting one because this has always been in my mind, the category of headset that is going to tip into VR into into mainstream adoption. Part of it is because we've always needed to get rid of the wires. Part of it is we've always needed to have full six degree of freedom immersion for our head and our hands because those are the only like points right now that are tracked, so it affected extrapolate from that your whole body. So you get a sense of embodiment, which is absolutely crucial to presence, which is the feeling of really being in the virtual environment that that you are being simulated into for lack of a better term. Now. And I think that this, the giving someone a headset and having them say, this is cool. We've Austrian that always ends up gathering dust on the shelf and and from me, part of the reason that is is because you're not actually up and doing stuff. The thing that made an intend to we such a phenomenon is 'cause when you play bowling tennis, you fell in some way like you were playing tennis or bowling. So now imagine rather than watching your little avatar on the screen doing it, you're actually there and you're actually doing this. This isn't a controller simulation. You're not using the metaphors of buttons and sticks to do this kind of motion, and you're not sitting there just waving your arm like a goon when I played tennis thing yesterday, I wasn't a big enough space that I could actually run back and forth across the court to return shot. That's a completely different phenomenon and what it does. It takes the the, the VR gaming and social experiences that are. All already huge hits for the PC power, VR community things like beat sabre, which is actively like Qatar, hero plus light sabers, and the fact that you don't need a PC. You don't cables. You can just pick something up, put it on, stand up in your living room or wherever you are and play, beat sabre. This game that has been an absolute phenomenon since early access earlier this year or go into a social platform like rec room and play paintball with people or just hang out with people.

"So when they were talking about insight, the Swedish computer vision, things, they said, well, we tested this and hundreds of rooms all over the world. We wanna make sure that it can map and read every environment possible. The question is what if the floors are shiny would if there's nothing on the walls would if you don't have any furniture, what if there are no distinct edges for the sensors to pick up, what is it going to think it sees and how is it going to map you within that? So everything that we saw at Oculus connect yesterday and we can talk more about this Lauren, because I'm curious about your experience. We haven't talked like with each other yet about this is I was in a bunch of different environments, all of which felt like they were not quote ideal use cases, right? They weren't like a living room. It wasn't like a wall with paintings on it and frames that these sensors could kind of pick up and extrapolate from it was a big, open air arrangement in which only some kind of real world. Obstacles, like stacks of boxes had tape along their lines? I guess with. Censors could see them, but I was also in a room with dark wood and cobwebs fisting the walls, which felt like it would be a challenge for the sensors. And I was on kind of a mock tennis court, and there were lines drawn on the court, but that nothing to do with the walls. So it was kind of all plexiglas walls around me. So that also felt like it would be a challenge for the system. And I'm sure that there was stuff that I didn't notice. It was put there to kinda help the computer vision system figure out where it was, but by and large it, it wasn't. It wasn't really stumped by any of this stuff. Handled it all really well and the tracking I had one tiny moment where the tracking of something I was holding fell off, but other than that it was flawless and it was kind of incredibly low latency, which is the other thing about this, like you wanna be able to look around if you'll just a stable and have the tracking field just as responsive as it does with tethered PC power system. This is effectively. It's ROY. Running like all the computing power, all the rendering power. Everything has to be inside the headset and you can attest to this. There's nothing on the headset that makes it feel like it's any bigger or heavier than the Oculus rift now it really didn't. It was incredibly realistic. I played a game called super hot. I'm not sure if you the chance to play that won. The super hot is the kind of existing poppy of titles that they're going to bring to TI quest. And I have not admitting not played a lot of first person shooter games in my in my day. And so to me being an virtual environment where these red figures faceless figures were coming towards me with handguns. You know, you actually, they, they slow down the the characters in the game, only move as quickly as you move and the weapons only move is quickly as you move in the real world. I mean, you know, so. So the the bullets kind of slowly coming at your face. And I was, I mean, I was in Irvine, it fell very felt really real. But I mean to your point, the positional. Tracking and the lack of Louis c. was really impressive for what was you know a wire free headset? No, we still do have a lot of questions about this were aware now. What processor is inside it. It's a snap dragging is at eight thirty five thirty five, but we still don't know a battery life is going to be like on the standalone headset. And another thing too is just how weather people are going to embrace. This mean my antidoto experience with VR is I've had a couple of standalone headsets at home. Friends or family come over, they say, cool, you have the Oculus go or the Samsung galaxy gear headset,.

"Do things like peak around corners. Oh, yeah, virtual reality. The example I always used to you always, you see, if you're if you're sitting at a table and envy are, and you lean forward to look at what's on the table. If you're wearing a three degree freedom headset like the Oculus go or the gear VR or something like that, nothing changes. You don't get any closer to the table, but in a six degree, freedom headset you do, you can lean over. You can examine what's on the table. You can crouch down, you can duck. You can look around corners. You can hide behind things and it. It opens up this feeling that you really in the place that you're supposed to be. And so three degree of freedom VR has always been a seated experience like you can sit in a swivel chair, and so you can look around and be like, cool. There's define me, which is the first kind of moment. Everyone has VR but was six off it. It just it opens up the space. You are an actor in three dimensional space. You're not just a disembodied. Like I. Talk a little about how Facebook is doing this because you touched on this earlier, but I think for someone who hasn't had as many VR experiences you have, it can be a little hard to just grasp fully. I mean, what you described earlier is with these high powered VR systems, ones that are tethered with a cable to a gaming PC you'd have that you'd be wearing a headset, you'd be to a PC and then you there would actually be sensors placed around the room around you. That's what would give you the six degrees of freedom. And this really real VR experience. Now you're seeing face because this quest headset, no cable, no sensors around the room, no positional trackers or anything like that. Just these sensors on your head. So how's Facebook making this hour Oculus I should say, how are they making this happen? This is they've been working on this for a long time and they didn't. They just had kind of a whole bunch of different computer vision projects, and they didn't have a name for it. And then they realized that if we give this thing name like we can explain. It to people a little bit better. So they started calling it insight and now they kind of announced it yesterday for the first time as this thing called insight. And that's not a product is just kind of a bunch of different technologies that create a computer vision suite that allows the quest do at does. So traditionally, like you said, Lauren, you'd have to external sensors. They'd either be mounted on the wall or they'd be on the table in front of you, and they would triangulate your position because they would read the infrared LED's that are stud the headset and that's always hidden under kind of the the rap. So you don't see them when you look at a headset, but the censor see them. So it's able to track you space. Now the difference is each. If you think of, if look at a headset from the front, if you're looking at a person wearing a headset, it basically looks like they've got a rectangle on their face and at each corner of the rectangle now there's this wide angle infrared lens that point out and it basically creates this. This kind of like the Microsoft connected creates this point cloud based map of the room. So it does that Emon it's in bull to translate your position based on the boundaries that it sees. It's much more like time of flight situation. So I'm going to trail off now because I forgot where I was going with this issue. Ask them, please do. So that means if there is a corner or furniture or shadow some type of change in the lighting, that's what it's actually going to pick up on all of that and say, okay, there's a wall there. Why? Dealy. Yes and no, right. The question that we all have and the question that every experience that we've had with the quest, whether it was as the Santa Cruz prototype or now in this kind of product, this feature complete version of it that we saw at Oculus connect. The question is, what is enough detail what is too much detail for these sensors to pick up so..

"Or follow the are as Santa Cruz. It was the Santa Cruz prototype has a long history of naming their prototypes after California features. So crystal cove was one that they had which was named after a place down in Orange County, and then Santa Cruz which became it was the first standalone headset prototype that anyone saw from Oculus standalone meaning you don't have to connect it to. You don't have to connected to a PC. You don't drop your phone in. It's not exactly mobile headset, but it also has six degrees of freedom which is kind of jargon term that just means you cannot you can. You can look around, but you can also move positionally in space. And that has something that has up until this year. Been the province only of PC and console powered headsets. So now we're starting to see standalone headsets that have six degrees of freedom earlier this year Oculus also released its very first standalone headset which was. The go. And that was much more of a casual play. It has three degrees of freedom. You can only rotate and look around, but you could move in space. So people have been waiting for the quest is as of yet as of Wednesday, we know what to be called because you get six degrees of freedom not only for head tracking, but with your hand controllers as well. So basically brings your entire body into a positionally tracked virtual environment. You can move around, it's what has long been known as room scale. But while these old systems have used these external sensors to track where you aren't space, the quest uses outward, it's inside out tracking as it's called it. It basically creates a point cloud map of the room that you're in and then let you move around because it knows the boundaries based on the inside out scan that it's done. So like the big, the big, I guess, sort of the easiest way to understand something like six degrees of freedom is that with six degrees of freedom, you can..

"So Alon under the gun, I would say if you're listening and you don't know a lot about this particular topic and you wanna learn more like please listened to that episode or or start doing some digging online because it is a delightful tale that. It ends with the SEC, but it starts with Ilan on Twitter, taking sleeping pills, Zalio banks crimes, Instagram's stories. We like there's just a lot going on in this particular tale that that leads to this bit of news this week. So I'm gonna probably go back and reread a bunch of those older stories because it's just it's just a fun one. And we can say now to that, Elon Musk has contributed to popular culture in more ways than one funding secured is now a term on urban dictionary, which actually means you have no idea when you're going to get the money that's important to run dictionary dot com. So thank you Yuan for your many contributions or. No. I mean, we can't really give credit for four twenty though. Those are nice touch though gave the whole thing sort of an air of mystery as to whether or not he was stoned. When he sent that tweet as we learned from New York Times interview, following up that tweet, he was driving when he sent that tweet. It is not clear whether he pulled the car over or was in autonomous mode or not. But he said he was driving, he thought of it and he tweeted it while he was driving. Did he say whether he was at a stop light or or stop signed moving? Not entirely certain. That was made clear, like I said, lot of layers to this story layers Ilan the onion, peel them and see. Well, another news item out of Facebook this week, the company's Oculus division formally unveiled a new VR headset. This is one that had been demo to as a prototype, code-named Santa Cruz. For the past couple years, we got to see the real thing this week. So we're wondering if this is the thing that's going to take VR mainstream, or if it's more of. Same and we're happy to have Peter. Rubin, Wired's culture editor also wrote a book about VR. Join us. Onstage show welcome to the gadget lab podcast. Peterman, thanks for having me on guys. So Peter, you and Lauren Ribaud theocracies connect lurk. This is what the fifth Oculus can act. It is the fifth Oculus connect Lauren. Was it your, how many of you been too? I think this is my first. Maybe my second. I don't know. Some of these conferences have really started to run together and they all are at the same places. They all at the The same same place. place. I, this one used to be in LA and then they moved to the San Jose convention center, I think in twenty sixteen. So it's recently like that. Facebook polish brought it closer to the to Silicon Valley as we know it. But because Oculus was originally an Orange County southern California company, they would do this in LA. So yeah, so I'm that and I have to say Lauren, if it was your, I hope it was your first because I, we also had your first Comecon together in July, which was a joy to be part of the culture team, hell broadens your experiences in tech reporting. This was totally me hanging with the tech team. So I was just to be there still Facebook is on a quest to make VR mainstream.

"Using their apps store and using their podcast platform. Twitter is just been kind of dragging its feet this whole time, and it is the company that does have the right to say, this is what we will or won't allow on our platform. So now Twitter has just you. It's ballooned you know, into this platform or people say, pretty hateful things ever them to just come in now and say, well, we're going to take this very specific role and we're gonna make it a little bit broader. I just have a hard time. Imagining it's going to be all that successful not to not to mention that at the end of the day, when companies start to do this kind of moderation, it does actually require manpower requires a workforce of either people or a combination of humans, autumn automated tools to determine what is allowed and what is not in. So I wouldn't be surprised if as we see more and more people reporting these dehumanizing statements, they're still they still might be getting rejection notices from Twitter saying, we don't think that's St. Uman ising. And so then it becomes bigger question of what that really means. Twitter still has lots tackle here. Yeah, and that's a great point about how difficult it is to. To moderate platforms that are this big. We've seen that happen on YouTube. We've seen that happen on Facebook, like having a good policy is one thing, but being able to really flex it in all kinds of nuanced situations is really, really difficult. So yeah, I'm I'm curious to see what happens on Twitter. One interesting thing about this policy changes that Twitter is actually asked for feedback on the new rules. So for the next week or so you can chime in and perhaps influence without final policy. Looks like I would love it. If many of the people who were who have been Austria is d- from Twitter, were able to contribute in a meaningful way to that conversation, or if they've just left the platform and they're never coming back and they don't care right. So our third bit of news this week is that tesla CEO Elon Musk is being sued by the securities and Exchange Commission done Don Don for making false and misleading statements as the head of a public company. This is something we've been expecting. It was I, it was first reported about a month ago, August fifteenth by the FOX business network, and then backed up by confirmed by the Wall Street Journal. In the New York Times that tesla had been subpoenaed, which was an indication that the SEC's investigation into Musk's activity on Twitter was ramping up. As you know, Alon dishes allot on Twitter and gets into it on Twitter and says, things that he probably should not say on Twitter and the SEC has been investigating it. And now the the commission has flipped its cards over Musk's being sued. The primary issue is something that Ilan tweeted in early August. He said. AMC considering taking tesla private at four hundred twenty dollars funding secured that kicked off a whole theory of speculation in handwringing over a few days which prompted must follow up a couple of days later with a blog post on Tesla's website saying that such funding was not exactly secured. So the SEC has specific rules about how financial information regarding public companies distributed. It has to be made available to all shareholders at same time, and it has to be true. The first part Twitter, he's talking on Twitter. Now, a lot of people aren't Twitter, but not every tesla shareholder is on Twitter and Twitter has allowed public companies to make statements on Twitter in the past, but they've also had to have some sort of mechanism for disseminating information in some other way, either via mail or a blog post or an Email through through regular channels that go out to all shareholders. The. Second part is the part about whether or not the information is true and after inland admitted that the information was not true, then it became apparent that the information was not true, which is what really raised all of the all the flags. So this is something that we've been following for a while as we expected this. We had Ari on Marshall on the show. Shortly after this happened a month ago, she's our transportation writer here or wired. She's written a story about this latest development this week, and she's written a bunch stories about it since started happening last month..

"With new leadership or new leadership over that particular product, we really don't know just yet doubt they break it. I don't think they'd be so bold as to make any huge changes that are going to really mess it up for people. Yeah, I'm excited to see what Kevin system and might Krieger go onto do next. I think if you're if you're walking away from Instagram at this moment, you're either just blazing into the future with a million new ideas, or you're retiring and sit pile of money, either of which are perfectly respectable as far as I'm concerned. But I definitely think they're people in Silicon Valley that we should keep our eyes on who are bound to very exciting things systems to just take a picture of himself in posted Instagram of him. Sipping bourbon and just haven't come full circle. Remember that bourbon. Instagram that it can go back to bourbon, have glass of bourbon Kevin. So. When it was announced they were leaving. I remember everybody was like immediately looking up to find out what the date was. They've gotten purchases. See if there was like some sort of stock turnover that happened like investing period just ended in. That's why they were quitting at that time, but that's very unlikely. But the other thing that happened when they were leaving is that like they announced that they were leaving and all of VC's were like, oh, best of luck to you guys in the future and everybody like clamoring to of community all the sudden. Must feel nice. Well, there's more big news in the social media landscape this week, and that comes from Twitter. Twitter, introduced this brand new policy, banning dehumanizing speech on the platform. So if you follow Twitter in the news or a few flake been on Twitter in the past year, you probably know that the companies had a pretty lousy fair approached the way it deals with hate speech and harassment, and people have been complaining about this for years. People complain about getting racist tweets, sexist tweets, tweets that are just buying large toxic and mean and hurtful. And that's really allowed people like Alex Jones thrive on Twitter, even while other platforms like YouTube and Facebook were a little quicker to boot him off for violating policies. So on Tuesday, Twitter announced that it was going to expand its policy on hateful conduct with new rules against dehumanizing speech. Which is going to go into effect later this year and that changes a couple of things. So I, it used to be the case that on Twitter, the the company only band targeted harassment. So if you wrote something like all women are scum, Twitter wouldn't make any actions unless it was targeted a specific woman. So Lauren is scum. Just like all women, not okay. But women are scum is like, well, it's pretty general. This new policy is changing that which is actually a huge deal for lots of people who've dealt with these kinds of tweets in the past. In second gives Twitter a lot more muscle to moderate this stuff on its platform. It's how to policy of being very, very hands off and now has an excuse to get a little more involved in what people are saying. The question is, will that be enough or is Twitter to talks to clean up with a new policy, especially one that wall much more robust than what Turner had before is is still pretty limited in its scope. What do you guys think. Mike, you can go, I, I think it's really, really, really tricky because languages so nuanced. It's gonna be something where like right now you can report something to Twitter and then they say, I'm sorry, this is not violate our policies even though it is clearly a breach of decency and probably against the law. It doesn't violate policy. So Twitter can't do anything about it. I think if they changed that to make it a lot more human and a lot more understanding. That's great. But still that's difficult because it's a very big platform and they've let it go for so long and they've let people get away with all kinds of crazy shit for so long that it's going to be really hard for them to the volume of hate. Speech is so much now that I think it's gonna be really hard for them to like monitor it in a more human way..

And then we're going to bring in our wired colleague Peter Rubin who is going to tell us everything you need to know about Facebook's efforts to take over the world by convincing you to wear computer on your face. No, but really Peter and I were both at the Oculus connected vent earlier this week, and we tried the new quest VR headsets. So we're gonna talk to Peter about that. Then at the very end, we're gonna give you recommendations just as always. So let's go ahead and get started. Okay. So first news topic earlier this week, Instagram co-founders Kevin system. And Mike Krieger resigned system told in your times that he in Krieger are planning on taking some time off to explorer. Curiosity and creativity. Again, building new things requires that we step back, he said, and understand what inspires us and match that with what the world needs. Now it's worth noting as our own editor in chief Nick Thompson tweeted that day that now the founders of Instagram, what's up and Oculus are all gone from Facebook and all. Those were pretty major acquisitions for the company and wall system said that he in Krieger are quote unquote grateful for the time at Instagram. It might not have been as clean of an exit as the prepared statement would lead you to believe. Recode reported that the two left amid frustration, agitated with Mark zuckerberg's increased meddling and control over Instagram. So system was widely viewed as the product visionary at Instagram, and now he's gone and there are reports of the increased interference with the absolutely vice think this means for Instagram, businesses. Usual? Yeah, I disagree. I think it's gonna be a shift. I think. I mean, I do think that this is a different kind of departure than the one we saw from Brian act in the co, founder of what's app who quit earlier this year over some disputes with Mark Zuckerberg, I think this feels a little bit different. I think it's believable that the Instagram co-founders just kind of were ready to leave, but I do think that they're leaving it an interesting time where Facebook is trying to integrate Instagram with the main. They're trying to integrate Instagram more widely with what's up there trying to connect all of their products into this more cohesive ecosystem. And I do think that's going to change the experience on Instagram. Possibly for the worse. Yeah, I think that that that shift is largely has largely already occurred. You know, we've been seeing sort of Instagram features being added to Facebook and a Facebook is Asian of some of the things that happened on Instagram. Instagram's still feels like its own little world that made not be as much. I think that that changed that may not feel it may not feel as much like Instagram is a separate part in the future, and that change has already sort of started happening. I think I agree. I think it's I'm used to feel really silo from Facebook. And now a lot of features and the ads frankly are starting to mirror the experience that a person has. And Facebook, of course, it's still pretty different from the news feed as a product, but there are increasing similarities. I think Jesse Hempel wrote this for wired and there's a PC should absolutely go right on Meyer dot com. But the way she described it as these tech visionaries, no just went to leave the party. It's not cool to be the last person. Hang out at the social media party. And I think that I in Krieger probably was the right time for them to make an exit, whether or not hate to say time will tell hate saying time whether or not we see fundamental shift and Instagram now.
