Security operations centers: a first principle idea.
"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm
Netflix's Q3 demonstrates the dreaded 'pandemic pull-forward in demand'
"Netflix's just reported in its worst ever earnings MISS INVESTORS BANS quarterly results from the streaming giant Jillian. Boston's on the West Coast this morning joins us with what went wrong in Q. Three. Was it Netflix's or wasn't the analysts Julia? How well expectations that were certainly high and then? Netflix shares today we see them plummeting on the biggest earnings myths and snatch flicks went public those earnings falling nineteen percent short of those analysts expectations now with Netflix. Of course, always about that subscriber number, it fell short of the companies already lowered expectations the company outages two point. Two million subscribers in the quarter in guided the addition of fewer subscribers in the fourth quarter then anticipated. Now, that's not all looking ahead to next year. NETFLIX's warns of some very tough comparisons but co-ceo hastings saying he's not concerned about competition we compete. So broadly, we compete for time against you know tiktok to as well as HBO as well as I tell really, the limiter for us is you know what's the quality of our service How often how many nights you say Oh my God I want to go to Netflix and and watch the next show. In contrast to Netflix snap shares soaring after beating expectations about twenty one percent beating expectations really across the board snaps revenue growing fifty two percent more than double the growth rate than analysts projected with a surprise profit of one cent per share that's compared to the five cents per share loss than analysts anticipated. Now, Becky what's really interesting here is that snap has really benefited from Kovin pushing advertisers to try their augmented reality ad formats and also guys there was a subtle dig at facebook sounds like they may have benefited from that facebook ad boycott well. Julius stay here we want to bring in another voice to the conversation as well. Rich Greenfield joins US right now he's of course, partner and Co founder light said partners and I want to start with Netflix's first. Then we'll get back to the snap story, but but Netflix, you say the real story here is that the bear story is gone. What do you mean these are disappointing numbers, but it does come after a very strong first-half for the company for for a subscriber ads. Yeah. Look look I heard the commentary that you were just talking about in terms of like the biggest. History of Netflix. But remember this is a company where again people are very focused on the subscriber trends and the subscriber trends in the first two quarters far out seated in terms of the beat far outside at Amiss here I think the real story that people should be talking about is that not only are they generating substantial free cash flow this year, but even next year as production is in full swing again, they're talking about that they may be at break even free cash flow and so the financing the sort of the bear thesis on Netflix for years was that they. Don't have the money to finance all of this content they're going to run into capital, they won't be able to finance. They won't be able to raise capital and that was sort of the the the bear thesis that's been ongoing for years and years. They're basically self financing now. So the view that Netflix has a capital raising issue is now gone, and if you start to look out over the next few years in terms of their pricing power and you're starting to move up price in Canada recently in Australia, we think the US will happen either in or early Q. One. Pricing Power and all of a sudden you don't have any cash flow needs in terms of having to raise capital. This thing's going to generate dramatic free cash flow and you're going to see the scale to billions and billions of free cash flow a year. That's what people should be talking about look beating lieutnant missing numbers is never a good thing for stock I get why it's down today make sense that it's down at Ted a huge run this year but I think this is more about consolidating as it continues to move higher. into. The point I think the company said on the call that if there had been another forty eight hours in the quarter, they would have met their projections or even exceeded some of the projections on this. But but when you see a pullback of about five point, three percent today does that represent a buying opportunity to you given how much the stock is already run this year? Absolutely because I think the thing that you need to be thinking about Becky is when you think about what's happened over the last sort Of like six weeks, what's really become clear one, the pandemic isn't just disappearing. You're seeing it flare up again in the US you're seeing flare up across a lot of Europe it even parts of Australasia like this is not going away. So we're all going to be more homebound or in terms of you know kind of entertainment activity for a longer period of time unfortunately over the course of the next six to nine months at the same time, the movie calendar has cleared out like all of the movie studios have. Essentially delayed all of their content two, second-half twenty, twenty one if not into twenty, twenty two, and so the path for Netflix's the runway has been completely cleared. They were going to be putting out movie after movie they've got a Ron, Howard movie hillbilly comes out in a few weeks an animated feature over the moon there's just a ton of content coming and really no competition and so I think that's GonNa really well,
'Happy Days' cast reunites to support Wisconsin Democrats
"A reunion of the seventies TV hit Happy Days is now confirmed, but not everyone's on board for France's happy days. It's a pretty happy day reunion of cast members, including Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Marion Ross and more, and the whole thing will benefit the Democratic Party of Wisconsin as the show was set in Milwaukee change you have to, but not everyone's onboard.

In socialist so safe to say he won't be at the

"Eight dichotomy. Which is what the Ellen's call. The race of humans. Day are much larger than the male Winston willows brethren. Don't think it's a good idea to keep her around the evil which Queen Bath. Marta has millions including her warrior. Princess daughter named Socia and efficient skull faced warrior General Keel actively searching for this baby smuggled out from under her nose because she may be. The prophecy foretold to in her reign. She has this special mark upon her arm and willow ends up accepting the mission to return the baby. Back to the first Daikin meets with a few other. Nell wins until along the way they encounter and recruit that I die keeney that they see mad marred again played by VAL kilmer. He's a skilled the down his luck mercenary. He agrees to take the baby in exchange for his release from capture. That keen are in the midst of a war with allegiance on. Bath Mortis side and that puts Laura Danone's fate in jeopardy. Should they fall? Short however willow gets another directive from fairy to find this good witch on a remote island and with Madigan and a couple of brownies. Who are these human like races that are even smaller than the no wins? They're only nine inches in height. Willow seeks to find a way to protect the baby from bath. Mortar now most of the interior for Willow was shot in L. Street studios in London. There were exteriors shot in England and in New Zealand so it was all over the map here. Some work was also done on. Lucas's home turf in Marin county including the Muir Woods San Pablo Bay and Skywalker ranch scenic cinematography here by Adrian. Biddle is a highlight in this land of Regal Castles and lush forests and lofty mountain backdrops and visually. This is gorgeous. A fairytale as there has been on the screen up to that point and as with all of his productions Lucas receives one for work from his visual Effects Company industrial light magic although some of the effects were ally costlier than the anticipated especially this morphing the more moments involving the magical turning of one creature into another into another into another isla had invented the morphing technique for this movie. They ended up feeling to get that process patented so that they could sell that technique to others who might want to use it in their films and they kind of lost millions. Potentially there. The story ends up going off the rails and its climax. Maybe that might be a step too far for some viewers. It's really wacky. That's kind of part of the film's charm for some viewers. It combines really stunning visuals with James. Horner's rousing score. And I think willow compels as a sight and sound experience. Even when the story tends to get formulaic three foot. Four inch Tall Work Davis. He gets his first starring role at only seventeen years old during the making return of the Jedi. Lucas had ideas of making Davidson star of this long. Just dating idea. Ron Howard. Initially was skeptical about Davis. He thought that he was too young at seventeen to play a married father of two. Lucas fought hard but he ended up leaving the decision to Howard on who better could be cast as willow if you could find somebody which put Davidson competition with hundreds of others auditioning for that part. The dishes were long and they were arduous. But Howard felt that this was a good test to see if Warwick Davis was ready for the long days and nights of the eventual shoot. And what's Val Kilmer? On the opposite Davis. He realized that the chemistry was evident there and he knew that he had his willow and Matt Martin Right then and there and from there Warwick Davis would undergo a lot of training horse riding. He had a phobia of horses fencing magic tricks and a lot of baby handling training to make sure that he fit this part to a t. Davis developed an American accent for we love because Ron Howard felt that American audiences would have difficulty understanding his English dialect even though the cast was mostly British anyway. Howard had Davis study the films of Jimmy Stewart in particular because he wanted Davis to embody the same calm but very steady everyman persona kilmer. Who beat out the likes of other actors like John? Cusak Matt Moore. Who Happen to be Max headroom. At the time Kilmer is very fun to watch. He applies this juggling style to his sword. Fighting that makes it very unique. Despite a game and Comical Performance Mad Martikainen I think he falls a bit short as far as being a compelling reluctant hero kind of fails to take hold in the manner of others of this mold like Hans Solo or in the Jones but kilmer still manages to get his do here. He became interested while he was making this film. In pursuing the actress Joanne whalley they became romantically involved during the shoot. And she initially opposed seeing her co Star on the side but she eventually found him hard to resist. Their offset. Romance caused some scenes to be reshot to capitalize on their newfound chemistry and they eventually became married about three months before the release of the film the roles of the Nineties High Brownies. They went to Comedians Kevin Pollack and Rick Overton. They were shot. After principal filming had completed and they were inserted using the tech wizardry of Aylum g marsh returns to a similar role to the one that she did for return to is as the main heavy. Lucas actually had a hand in helping to get return to Oz made behind the scenes and he really liked gene marshes portrayal there so he used it here and after the largest casting call for little people for any film in history up to that point about two hundred forty of them would end up participating in willow as actors and stunt personnel extras. There's an irony here. Willow lacks many of the humanistic touches. That George Lucas had sought Ron Howard to deliver Lucas emphasized them conceptually but once production was underway. He ended up obsessing more with the visual components. And this really became the kind of visual effects film that he swore it would never be and he ended up getting a lot of the backstory to the characters that he intended in favor of extending the action in battle sequences backstory. That was put in. The original script does remain if you read the novelization and also. Marvel's Comic Book Adaptation. There was much more fleshing out of these characters before they get to their battles. I would say there are probably more emotions humanity to be found in say an Indiana Jones. Film which willow does tend to emulate in its action sequences. Even the Willow tries more deliberately to pluck at our heartstrings. Now I would say the only genuine emotional connection that does occur happens between willow and his wife. Kaya kyw's played by. Julie Peters Peters had no prior acting experience at all before taking the Cairo working as an audio typist inner day job and she still continued doing that. Even after Willow A- Laura Dannon. The baby is played by Twin Sisters Ruth and Gene Greenfield on the screen. The twins went through many hours of filming to try to ensure that the crew would have a whole host of emotional reaction shots that they could use throughout the story depending on the situation. In addition to the Greenfield's who were brought in near the end of the shoot for close ups nearly twenty other infants were borrowed from a local hospital with permission from their parents of course and they were used during the shoot at one time or another including a thirteen pound motorized standing. That Davis carried around because the age of Laura Dannon was to be only three months old but it took many more money than that six months to a year for the film to be completely shot. Lucas and company. They did have a bit of fun with some notable film critics at the time. Some of the bad guys are named. After these film critics general keells knock on the prominent critic for New Yorker magazine Pauline Keel while according to the press kits and the novelization the ugly to headed beast. That's in this film is called an Ebor. Sisk Ron Howard jokes. That the heads were modeled after his brother. Clint the Iverson is clearly poking fun at the two headed duo of film critics known as Siskel and Ebert it was originally going to be called Cisco Bird but that might have made it a little too obvious. The name of the fairy maiden of the forest sharell Andrea came from combining the names of the wives of Ron Howard and Bob Dolman Cheryl and Andrea respectively and Linda. Ronstadt was put there in the middle. That was Lucas's girlfriend at the time willow when it finally came out it debuted atop the US box office in its initial week of release but it ended up failing to catch the kind of fire that they were hoping to achieve in the end. Despite a twenty million dollar marketing campaign launched total box office returns were fifty six million dollars in the United States.

You said that you decided to build the life you want it to live. Yup You have got to dig deeper on. Yeah back in nineteen ninety six I I was going through a tough year is one of the toughest years of my life. I had gone through Through bankruptcy Went through a divorce. became a single dad of a nine and seven year old Wait over four hundred pounds and I wasn't making nearly enough money each month.

Ah to write articles on this subject so you know it's it's remarkable. What happens if you start building towards the the life that you want to? Have you know things end up falling into place. Now it's taken me twenty three years but But I'm at the point now where US every failure that I've had in my life life To help me you know truly appreciate it. Be Grateful for things are today and and I'm just I'm a mumbled I'm honored. I'm very grateful grateful. So you mentioned in your answer that you've had failures and that you've overcome challenges. What how you approach challenges to overcome them With every we'll see I you know I guess the easiest way for me to do. This is what I speak about on the road and what I wrote into my book answering why I call it the branch creek moment of life you know if you can imagine yourself going up in a tree and just climbing a tree. This happened to me when I was ten years old. I went up very high up into a tree when out on a really firm limb and while I was standing on the limb the limit or niece meet cracks. I mean if you can imagine what that feels like you know when you when you hear it underneath you and you almost feel it like pitchfork through your body as the branch starts to give way. Hey well you know at that moment of peril. There are three things that happen and this is a metaphor. I use for everything in my life and I teach this to audiences three things that happen number. One you become singularly focused doesn't matter what stresses and challenges. You had getting into the tree or not focused on the task at hand. Second thing that happens. Is you start strategic. Planning how you're going to get out of this. And how do you get back to the safety of the trunk. What are you gonNA grab where you'RE GONNA fall? Third thing that happens is you take action And all three of those things focused planning action happen literally in the blink of an and I or I you know I believe that. The branch creeks in our lives many times anytime. There is a fear of loss or a sense of urgency. The branch creeks underneath us a little bit and it forces us to focus the plan and to take action and I believe that those are the moments that make all the difference in the world. Because it's at those moments that we actually become uncomfortable and I believe that the growth in our lives happened when in fact we're uncomfortable almost never when we're comfortable so I I welcome those times and so in Nineteen ninety-six and I had the biggest branch creek in my life with all of those things that were going on and it forced me to focus the plan and to take action and that's made all the difference in my life now when I am ever you know Faced with a challenge or something in my wife isn't going according to plan today or this week or this month or whatever I always take a step back and I go. Oh this is a good thing. There's something positive here I have to focus. I have to plan. I have to take action and every time I do that. It gives me a new perspective on the challenges oranges that arise each day. Some awesome so switching is just a tad bit And I love s asking this question just because of the different answers that I get If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be and what would you say to them. Wow what a great question I would love to meet and have dinner with Ron Howard. I just I'm a big Fan. I think he's a remarkable storyteller and And he's He was born on my birthday. He's just eight years older than me but I would love to meet him and talk about some of the the remarkable stories that he's told on Film we've learned a lot about you the branch creek moments in your life. Tell us about your business. What do you do so I own a company called T. The F. S. Were a You know an international communication and strategic initiatives company. I you know I work. I do a lot of consulting with educational organizations and business organizations on how to recruit engaged retain and increase performance in the younger generations. So I'm constantly working in to try to get people to understand that you know the younger generations are the most incredible generations to come down the pike. Which is why I'm in so demand today because I have a different view than most people? We'll do In America today most people think that young people are lazy and entitled. I go completely the other way. I think anyone thirty nine younger in this country and the most incredible generations to come down the pike like. I think they're the most intelligent resourceful and pit bull like generations that we have ever seen in this country when they see a want to in their life they will move heaven and earth to get to that want to our challenge of course his parents educators employers is getting them to want something so what I work with with organizations and you know whether it's educational or or workforce development is. How do you understand what they're thinking you know? Wh Why do they think what they think what makes them tick. And then how do you best engage. Connect an answer there. Why As to why something is happening so that they can come along for the ride you know they need to see the vision. They need to see the purpose in order to be able to move forward. So that's what I do do every day. I've got twenty three roughly twenty three people now that support what I do across North America and and we are we're we're we're crushing it out there. I got an amazing. The team of people that are constantly giving one hundred percent And they they actually push me further and faster some. I'm very fortunate to have brought wonderful people on
Britain’s Unwritten Constitution Suddenly Looks Fragile
"The u._k. U._k. of wednesday's decision by her majesty the queen elizabeth the second herself to approve prime minister boris johnson's request to suspend parliament until the middle of october now a lot of people saw this as boris johnson's way to prevent his adversaries from blocking no deal brexit before the october thirty first deadline deadline and some people went a lot further than that shutting down parliament in order to force through an audio brexit which will do untold and lasting damage to the country is not democracy. It's dictatorship and if m._p.'s don't come together next week to stop boris johnson in his tracks then i i think today will go down in history. As the yuki democracy died scotland's first minister nicholas sturgeon there simon my british friend <hes> so often we we asked this of your countrymen when they come on this show what is going on. We always have the same refrain when it comes to brexit. What's the latest here. What is the significance against of what nicholas sturgeon calls the end of democracy on the island. I was thinking on the way he had told that we could spend the entire hour discussing british parliamentary procedure all the vagaries areas of operating with an unwritten constitution but it might just be easier to explain the rules of cricket to emirati. We'd get further and understand more. This is a huge huge move by boris johnson fueled by seventeen point two million voters who in that referendum three years ago now said they wanted to pull britain written out of the european union. He is essentially risking a constitutional crisis and i think even a societal crisis to try and get britain out of the european union but the problem is <hes> that he is a prime minister himself with no democratic mandate of his own replaced theresa may as a result of the votes of members visit of the british conservative party less than naught point. One percent of the british public essentially voted him in he has inherited exactly the same parliamentary array of forces parliamentary difficulties that tied to resume up in knots. We sit here and we see that shock of blond hair and we think oh. Everything's changed in the okay. Nothing's changed. The only thing that's changed is the occupant of number ten downing street and he's doing the one thing that five members of his own cabinet argued less than a month ago would be profoundly undemocratic and autocratic namely an enron an end run around parliament and he's gonna prorogue it which is a fancy name for saying suspended activities <hes> for several days i mean the number of days involved is open to debate but for five weeks parliament will not meet in what he hopes is a move that will allow him to pave the way if necessary to pull britain out out of the european union without an agreement with brussels something that he knows parliament would vote to block and there's a fundamental issue here which is sovereignty supporters of brexit have argued since the debate was first mooted that one of the reasons why britain needs to leave the european union is because we need to get our sovereignty back but britain sovereignty is enshrined in what we are all taught at grade. School is the mother of parliaments so the idea that in order to get british sovereignty back. You actually may have to suspend the activities of parliament. It's a real rhetorical problem for boris johnson and he's going to be facing. I think major protests over the next few days as a result. I cannot tell you what hugh hugh grant famous british actor tweeted about this because it would get us fined by the f._c._c. and get me thrown off the air but ron howard rank and file people reacting is this similar to what happens in the united states where there's sort of outrage on one side shrugs on another side and people sort of move onto the next outrage or is this really permeating british societies permeating me any british society because while <hes> obviously labor is is opposed to this but you also have dettori's conservatives who are posted as to you and you just saw that you know former british prime minister. John major has jumped in on on a on a lawsuit to try and stop this activity. It seems that johnson's johnson is betting that the e._u.

"So it turns out everybody has a little bit of a freak flag flying, including. Nightside who married? A woman who is his first and second cousin. So I feel a little bit better. Where I stay at such a freak flag because I do I seen those flying. Look for them Jenner. What what give us some parting thoughts? Well, this idea of genius. I think is really appealing to us as human beings. But it's fascinating to be to realize that if it hadn't been Einstein it would have been somebody. And and that's that's really important that that we remember that as much he gave us lots of special things. Besides just the discovery of relativity he gave away of thinking about it. And that is unique to him. But but I do think that there's this. Yeah. Competition between the universe and us and age match. And I think the universe has like really good odds. Universal man versus the universe. I'm taking the spread. I let me follow up on a point that you just made often we see the word art and the word science conjoined college of arts and sciences. So many universities have such a place the history of art and science there are two sides of the same coin, but there's actually a fundamental difference between the two of them. Let's take a Van Gogh's starry night the painting if he didn't pink that no one else ever would forever. Will if Beethoven didn't compose his ninth symphony. No, one else in a quadrille years, would compose the ninth symphony, but Einstein with all of the genius that he has manifested if he were never born someone or some combination of people would have come up the special theory of relativity, not as early as he did it would take a little time the general theory of relativity, which is one of the greatest achievements of the human mind. Eventually someone would do that. So for me scientific genius is not that you stand apart from everyone else. You just you arrived at the bus, stop sooner than others. And so really the discovery of the universe. Is for us. All it's just a matter of when more than it is a matter of who. And that is a cosmetic perspective you've been listening to possibly even watching this episode of star talk, featuring my interview with Ron Howard at south by southwest in Austin, Texas couple of years ago, and we were talking about Einstein. I wanna thank the organizers of that conference and Ron Howard himself for giving us his time. And let me thank my co-host. Harrison, thanks for joining me on my pleasure to come back.

"Well, I'll tell you with Apollo thirteen when I had the opportunity to make that movie that was the first story that I got involved with that was based on real events. And I was I was I was mortified by it because I thought well, I'm not going to be able to be as creative and inventive in cinematic. And so forth. I'm going to be you know, sort of locked into these facts, and at the end of the day, I found it was very very liberating because when people know it's based on real events, they really need in. It's a different kind of mindset. And so you were worried as a creative director that the facts would constrain your storytelling. Yes. And that would and and you know, I might not be able to be as dramatic or as exciting as I wanted to be. And I realized that's not the point with this kind of story. In fact, the facts are part of the entertainment value there part of what the mystery this part of the discovery. Agenda. Do you ever favorite movie about a scientist? That's an interesting question. I've actually been interested a few through a few. I have to say I got a little more interested in scientists in plays which then were turned into movies. We talked about Copenhagen. No. Marius? We argue scientists is brick and mortar. I kind of hate feeder. I'm this is one of the family jokes. Like, I almost always walk out halfway through a play. Huge fan of theater like it's really hard for me to get over the bump where I love it. So I'm sorry about that at their. No, that's bad. It just muddied. My I think I just watched a little microphone. I have to leave. That is a performing artist. Part where you paid for the. So I, but I do love books, and I love I love reading and writing and so place just naturally came more easily to me on paper. So I was reading them. So I read proof which is a fantastic play about math sorta in Brooklyn. Yeah. But it's a fictionalized story. Did you see it with Mary? Louise parker. I heard it was fantastic. Because it oh latter day friends with her about that. Yes. So a woman who is a matching. But no one knows it. And is it her father or rather father is also in matching IOUs, but then it gets adult later on. But no one knows it. But she keeps writing the theorems down. And they think it's his not hers and EV and no one believes it could ever be heard because the dad was the genius that everyone knew. And so it's. Terrific play brilliantly. And and I did get turned into a movie, and then another one that comes to mind is our Katya by Tom stoppard, which we're the characters talk about chaos and complexity and iterating in computation, and it's just it's multi-layered beautifully. Really interesting. So those are it's more about the characters I think then 'bio-pics sort of start favorite movies as she gives me the books of plays. Level is deep. I have read right? It was by offic. I wondered if Ron Howard was holding anything back something he wasn't fully letting on about his life and his personality check it out. Do you have some secret Dc on her belly? That is only your carefully letting us know about movie by movie out. In fact, you go home just a geek, man. I did this. I do look at the science times..

"And we're featuring my interview with Ron Howard. What does Ron how it has to do with Stein? He actually directed the first season of national geographics genius series. And if you're gonna start a series about the world's geniuses who better to do it with then Einstein, and I bumped into Ron Howard at south by southwest and Austin, Texas and nabbed some quality time in conversation with him about that project to talk about ice. Then I know the man, I know his work, but I don't know him as well as my friend and colleague, John eleven Janna. Welcome back to star talk. Yeah. So Jenner you are professor astrophysics at Barnard college and Columbia University and your theorist yet, and you care about complicated cosmic stuff. Yeah. What the space time continuum is doing everything I think about has something to do a space time. Excellent. So do all of us. Mike going for lunch. Example. Let's get a Cup of coffee where letter so. Yeah, we all think about space time whether or not we know it. Yeah. So thanks for your offer commentary on some of what comes out in in this interview. And we've got Harrison we mount Harrison, welcome back. Thank you. Excellent. He only has a connection to Einstein because my great grandmother's brother, Louis Louis. Enter was part of the the group that helped get him out of Germany to New York. So we have like a letter in the family family of gratitude for mind sign for helping. Well, you should ensure that his letter about religion sold for something like two million dollars recently in a few months. A couple of phone calls to make so so welcome back. Yeah. And what's your wearing a shirt with recognize the quote that the universe is under no obligation to make sense to you who who said. So you wear that on my show. I think quote by him. No, thanks. We're in the shirt. What am I more important quotes out there? Happy to spread the love of this day. But they sure it's apropos to this topic. Because so much of Einstein's work doesn't make sense to anybody. It makes sense on paper, maybe physicist who who studied it. But to the rest of everyone what the hell was he saying, so hence, the universe is under no obligation to make sense. So and just to be clear, so you're you're comedian Atta magician after that doesn't make sense to my parents. So. So so I have to have to play the obnoxious. So does that. So so is that why you're not married? Exactly. I married a musician. And we said, okay, maybe we should just tell my parents your magician. And then when you find your musicians if you so happy. Before the truth and be happy. The greater of the lower truths. Right. Exactly. Sending Marshall j Marshall joke where he talked about you. I want to grow up and be a magician. Like, you can't do both. Good. Good. Good and you're tweeting Harrison comedy. Yeah. And Jenner tweeting gentleman. Yeah. Good got your you. Don't have to say the real version of you. So why don't we go to our first clip? I clip of me in conversation with Ron Howard. We all know who Ron Howard was he's Opie from from what's that show? Gripper show, and he's a life in Hollywood. And he was in the original musical the music man as the the the kid with a lisp who sang about Gary, Indiana, the NFL. That in the middle school seems to. So let's check out my interview with Ron Howard talking about Einstein. You're handed a project of arguably the most important human being in the twentieth century. Well, and now you put now you hell, how did you where did your destiny? I got this. I heard. I'm listening. Well, I've read movie scripts about Einstein and periods of Einstein's life before. And I never felt that they were that that was the right platform for it was the right outlet for always too limiting.

Review: With the latest 'Grinch,' there's nothing much new
"So awhile ago, I wanna say number of months ago, we got shown a first teaser. Well, first of all got announced that oh, they're doing another grant of yet, another remake the Grinch for those that aren't aware. They did the original amid movie with Boris Karloff voice in the grant and narrating. And that one for a long time was the only one there was no Grinch anything in two thousand which I did Naji know this until recently that that's when it came out. It doesn't seem like it's been that long to me. But I digress. They didn't live action grant where Ron Howard. Did it directed it? Jim Carrey was the Grinch in it. In a lotta ways that it kind of expand on the story and kind of filled in gaps that we really didn't get in the book, or in the animated film that you know, we had had many many years ago, and some people were mixed about it. I personally really enjoyed it. I thought you know, Jim Carey did a great job the castle did a really great job had a good soundtrack, and it was a different fun film. And as I was watching the teasers for this new grant and the trailers, you know, where Benedict Cumberbatch this time voices. The grant turns out Keenan Thompson is in it as like a neighbor of the grant, and then then the girl from murder, she wrote her name's on the tip my tongue. It's she voices the mayor whose only for a little bit. So anyways. So this film. I was if you about it had my doubts, Mike, you know, what it could be good or it could be really bad. There's no in between. And I was able to see this movie this week. And yeah. I'm going to bring it to you everything about this film. I do warn you there may be some spoilers in here. I'm going to try to keep it as spoiler free as I can. But at the same time, I'm gonna you know, kind of this is going to be kind of a, you know, just true review. It's what's going to be so anyways. So this movie like I said has been come about just the grant it's computer animated. It's done by aluminum entertainment, the same company that's done. You know, the first three despicable me movies. It did minions which really my opinion were all actually really good movies, by the way, I had my dad's about minions to and I left going right minions. They did a very good job. So I thought you know, that going, you know, what I don't think it's going to be bad. I just didn't think. So. So anyways, I go and see this movie, which by the way is only like an hour, forty minutes long. It's not really a long movie. The live action version that Ron Howard derive. Acted was I think closer to two hours, and I'm just going to say it, the this movie is terrible. It has a really really really bad film is just man I was just like in shock. How bad it was.

"Over the internet okay we are now to our last section is what what you've been reading chris what have you been reading i recently paged through the art of solo star wars story i actually wrote a little piece about it for the site it's you know it's one of those big coffee table art books which i really love any book like that even if i don't like love the movie i find these books fascinating and i won't go into this too much because like i i wrote that piece but the big takeaway from this book that i found is that the earlier versions of solo be it you know in development or perhaps the lord and miller one looked a lot more interesting and a lot more different and unique than the final film you know i like the final film it's entertaining but the art in this book makes it look like unlike any other star wars film i've ever sees i kind of wish they had stuck with that but i guess that's the way it is it's actually interesting in your piece you note that they don't have any quotes from lord and miller or ron howard which is a big change for these books which usually quote you know the directors throughout yes that that really threw me off because i have the art of the last jet i booked to in ryan johnson is all over that book i mean he right he wrote an introduction and you know it's clear that that film is one hundred percent his vision whereas this book he doesn't mention ron howard or lord miller and my guess is an earlier version of this book had lord and miller all over it because it was technically they're film but then obviously after they got fired they didn't want to have them all over the book and perhaps ron howard just didn't have enough time to weigh in and you know ron howard you know i like ron howard but he's especially on this he's a director.
"ron howard" Discussed on /Film Daily
"Which makes me almost think that that was like an impromptu line and they decided to make that a bigger plot in the movie that might end up in there which makes me wonder if that was lord and miller because it feels like a lot of what ron howard was brought on to do was to stick to the script rather than do a lot of that improvising yeah but i it definitely seems weird in a movie where at the end she's her consciousness or hurt data or whatever you wanna say is put into the money and falcon to be stored forever and it's kind of like this black mirror isssue thing it seems we are to end you know a character that has been talking the whole movie about equal rights and and you know it just seems very very weird but let's move onto efi's nest this is a cool new group of characters introduced in this film kind of like space pirates in the end of the film they do this big reveal takes off the girl takes off her helmet out it she 'em fee or is she the daughter do you know i think she's the daughter of the original emphasis is what i think she implies but i mean her name could very well be emphasis as well if this yeah and that moment is almost played as like this huge reveal in almost every time i've seen the movie people have come up to me after midnight is that someone i should know like you know from the comics or from rebels or you know like it's played is like this big moment but i think the moment is just that she is a young kid right.
