Furniture Finishing Q&A with Mike Mascelli Finishing
"This questions from chips. Stoltzfus and chip. If you have anything to do with. Stoltzfus is restaurant in lancaster. Pencil or no bird in hand pennsylvania. Oh country i miss that place dearly. All right i have been a professional woodworker for almost twenty five years. I started out in a large making church furniture and have since worked mostly in smaller cabinet shops. In that time every finisher. I've ever worked with said that you shouldn't san to sand higher than one. Twenty or one fifty grit. They claimed once you get higher than fifty polish is the would not let stain it here. Like it is designed yet. I often hear you talking about standing to three twenty or higher before finishing all of the shops. I've worked with have had have used wiping saints with some type of lacquer. Topcoat is the difference in sanding due to different finishes. I've started using rubio. monaco. And i've noticed that it gives a smoother finish if the piece of sand to the higher grits. Thank you for your time and great work with the pun. So well i've heard this many times Thank you for asking a couple of things that i think we should just sorta get On the table it matters a lot. What kind of would you're working with More so even than the than the finished. So if you're working in oak or mahogany and really open. Grain pours wood particularly oak. You can get away with a lot of stuff on on course grit sandy because you have such deep pours and lines in the in the in the grain of the as it is if you're in maple or you're in cherry It's a very different game. So you have You're talking about church furniture. A lot of that furniture's oak. Yeah in a production shop setting you're gonna send this stuff with a production machine may be a big stir machine dual pad sander And you're going to get this stuff out the door because you're in a commercial setting so sanding to a one twenty or one fifty you're leaving fairly significant scratches so in in oak if you see a neatly along the grain those scratches won't be as objectionable if you're using wedding stained product. I'm holding this up for the folks that can't see this. This is a mohawk wiping stain product. That's pretty typical you. You'd see in a commercial shop and this is mostly a die product. That doesn't have a lot of pigment in it again. I did a a article which we coming out and find woodworking here soon about diane pigment but die think about the like a strong food coloring or t it's going to penetrate into the would as much as it can whatever the would will absorb and that's what you get. A pigment is nicely ground fine particles of nice dirt so the pigment if you had it in a wiping stained product or know a commercial setting if you're gonna put die on it's going to absorb what it's going to absorb and that heart and twenty grit sanded. Surface is going to absorb guy and the grooves of the santa scratches are going to absorb a little bit more die because you have the sides of the of the valley if you will open if you have a pigment in your in your stand mix if you have deep scratches like one twenty scratches the pigment is gonna lodge in those scratches so what we always say in. The shops are if you sat at one twenty and uses a pigment stain and you see and at a higher grit. The one twenty grit is going to appear darker because more pigment is gonna stay behind when you if you do a white walker if you leave it there because you there's more places for the pigment the lodge there's there's more surface area right. There's there's a valleys of the sand scratches the pigments going to go in there and it's going to stay so if you take the exact same piece of lumber and sanded at one twenty and seeing like to and stain it. It's going to look darker at one. Twenty okay is that to twenty. So that's one aspect of the of the the higher grit sitting as far as this business about polishing the. Would if you see end up high enough if you take a piece of maple cherry and you sanded up to four five six hundred you'll create a surface. That's almost like this piece of plexiglass. It's very very resistant to anything. Even the dies so it really is true. If you stand up too far you will. You will resist the action of the die penetrating and of course there's no place for the pigment to lodge so it's going to look very very light so to to well. I always say as a rule of thumb is that the middle ground here is to twenty okay and there's two reasons for the to twenty one for the color and once for the fish on the collar side if you're sanding at you know eighty and one twenty and one fifty whatever it is if you don't sand perfectly each grit progressively you're gonna leave one hundred grit scratch someplace so if santa to twenty neatly it even if you leave one hundred grade or one hundred fifty grit. Scratch somewhere in that pattern. It won't be noticeable because the to twenty will help smooth that over the other reason for the one on the finnish. Side is if you leave to twenty grid scratches most finishes at two applications. You know a couple of dry mills of finish most finishes will bridge to twenty scratches at one twenty. You gotta put a whole lot of finish on there to get it to bridge the the valleys and in the case of church furniture. It didn't matter you know if it's oak. You're not going for a full pour piano by finish so it's okay you can leave him at one. Twenty it doesn't make the finish. Grab any better I mean you need a little bit of tooth for like the modern era things and stuff even this rubio other than lacquers which melt into each other. You need a little bit of tooth and usually in between the coats is when we would send three twenty okay so the bare would prep would be bringing up through the grit. Says you need to Up to about two twenty as a rule of thumb in most woods an inbetween your coats of finish. If you're going to scuff in between that would be at say three twenty at the most if you go too much then it's true you're finish isn't gonna would here so Also if you do test boards now sanding at two twenty the you're you're you're staining will look differently if you finish at one eighty or one hundred question Particularly again if the if the caller i will call it. Disdain is sort of or ginger. If the color delivery system includes some pigment those pigment particles that powder dirt is gonna lodge in those poor in the pores of the wood and in your scratches and the other thing is if you're going to sand rough if you're gonna leave it at one twenty or one fifty you'd better stand really really neatly with the grain. Is any them cross grade. He's gonna show up like a scar. A so special pigtail swirls from iran. A morbid sander and again give you some some advice on that if you're standing up to two twenty with a random orbit i'm gonna really good ones. There's air powered ones in. There's there's an electric ones even really good to twenty random orbit. You're gonna get little swirly marks. You can handsome those out but you got back up to one eighty. Okay get those swirly marks at back up to one eighty on a hand block get the swirlies out and then hand block at two twenty so use your random orbit to get most of the work done in and try to minimize the swirly marks but if you get those little squirrels you've got to send him out yet. Backup one grip. I've i've recently started doing christian beck's method of. I think come one fifty or so. He pulls the pat off the ran more but does a hand pass them one. Eighty four but paul's pat off does a hand pass is is even. If you're trying to clear the swirlies out okay. The other thing that can help is a lot of these. Random orbits now the new ones. The lyrics are adjustable. Speed variable-speed ara. Are you supposed to change that speed. I've never touch that knob. Where do you run at high on. Fast or slow. Whatever it's i have no idea. I've never thought about that. Phnom well if you put it now all the way fast you're going to remove a lot more material and you're gonna leave more swirly marks if you put it all away. Slow was gonna go. Roy moore and you're not gonna get good standing action. So somewhere in the middle is better and slower is better so i would say sand at the slowest speed. That's effective for what you're trying to do. Okay you will minimize the squirrelly marks if you said at full number ten You're not only gonna not gonna have as much control of what you're seeing but you're gonna leave more swirlies
Q And A With Alex Potter And Rob Maurer
"Everybody robbing our here today, we are joined live by Alex Potter off Piper Sandler Alex Cover Tesla for a long time, we've had him on the podcast a couple of times. So today we're just going to go through. You know everything that has changed in the last few months with Tesla. Alex. is on a lot of research autonomy on energy and then we're also gonNA talk a little bit about Battery Day We are GONNA be doing Q. and A.. So on Alex's side, they have their investors pepper sandler investors are going to be asking some questions and on my end If you WANNA, ask questions on Youtube feel free to do that. We're going to select a few of those to you also go through So thanks for joining Alexander Smith, and you want to add to that Andrew. I don't think so very much looking forward to it. As Rob mentioned I'm analyst at Piper Sandler. I cover Tesla and for our institutional clients were dowd right now you can. I know there's a Q. A. Function. So Jessen corporate access watching that, and if you have any questions, you would like test me or or rob. You can either use that function or you can send me an email I've got my emails up here. as well. So maybe I don't know what do you want to I'll ask you to do an intro. You introduce yourself I my audience understands who you are and then all of the same. Sure. Yes. Oh. My Name's Roy Moore. I have been a retail investor in Tesla since two thousand, thirteen I started doing the Tesla daily sort of. podcast back in August twenty seventeen the reason I did that was just because I saw a lot of misinformation out there in the media and I thought a lot of investors were having trouble getting good accurate information in a timely manner I felt like I can help with that just because I was doing so much research on the company every single day. So just on a whim, sorta started Tesla daily as podcast, and since then it's grown, I took a fulltime last year on Youtube and over the last year of we've gained about one, hundred, thousand subscribers. So a lot of people definitely interested in Tusla and interested in it from an investment perspective. and I'm lucky to be joined by people like Alex Lincoln, help us understand that. And also has more or less has a monopoly on the question asking. Comes to the quarterly earnings calls as well. I might add so if Obviously the test approach during these earnings calls is is atypical, but for institutional investors and another sell CIDERS You know when we started seeing this say dot com stuff it was sort of Sort of jarring a little bit odd. But for those who are unaware. that works by vote process. So people like rob and others they submit questions on behalf of retail investors and then they get up voted and rob because of the quality of his questions and get basically. Five out of five or something. Questions while you're limited so only. I've cut myself down to two because it's you know everyone should have an opportunity and not everybody else audience. So. That's generous. All right. Okay. So how do you want to do this route I? This is this is going to be the third time that Robin I've had discussion. That's been sort of a an interview. Interviewer interviewee sort of a a a setup but I think this time and we can do it that way as well. I know that we've got some topics we want to get through but then after after that, we can open up to Q. and A., and if nobody has been accused or as than Robin Top, we'll ask her own questions. Yes I think I want to start off with just your last couple of notes since we last talked again as did the the big updates deep dives on both the energy business and the economy business, and that's something that particularly retail investors have been frustrated with. I don't know if it's you know institutions or Wall Street or analyst in general, just not really modeling for those things and so I just like to you know go through what your models are sort of showing and the thought process that you approach them with I don't know that's a broad question. So I guess we're GONNA Kinda start wherever without. So I think it's. It's not just retail investors that are frustrated with it. I mean I think that investors in general are frustrated with IT A. Topics in particular software autonomy, self-driving row taxis. But then also the. Stationary storage business energies are or the. Batteries. Gigantic Mega Pack, Grid scale type batteries a lot of people they approach these topics without really knowing what to do with it like how'd you build a model? in the first place, it's not like the auto business where we're getting tons of data from lots of different regions market share pricing you know people are tracking these things on a daily basis and you can. You can track Tesla's progress. You have a much harder time doing something similar in the stationary storage business like if I was to ask you. How many megawatt hours of stationary storage were installed last month and what Tesla's market share within that in Europe was. People would be like I have no I don't I don't have any of the Ammo to answer that question, but they answer those questions daily for the auto business. Right so partially, it's a question of you know data availability partially, it's also a question of PNL contribution like these topics aren't a big enough needle mover today in terms of what Tesla's going to do in any given quarter. So people just don't devote as much bandwith to it. but that being the case. Especially, the bigger the market cap gets hired valuation goes the more you have to consider. Pieces of the business like this that you know at least if you're GonNa believe, you must take him at his word that these parts of the business. Core right and potentially at one point going to be as large or larger than the automotive business. If that's even the right zip code, then you can't just continue ignoring them. So you know we firstly published a big sort of deep dive on. On autonomy and The soffer opportunity. Then we did a note that wouldn't know that I would call it a deep dive on the energy business because we're still sort of getting our feet wet there But. Yeah. I. I don't know if you had an opportunity to read them that. They get a little bit detailed But. It was educational, one way or another, and at least now we have a framework for thinking through You know how big these businesses could potentially be, and

WHO's professor of Law and society at Griffith University in Brisbane Australia. He's also adjunct professor of law at Queensland University of Technology and Research Associated University College Under Center for Blockchain Technologies, he who suggests on the Bloomberg professional globalization of law and the technology in law. But come John. Hello. Thank you. Sure. Yeah. So I want to start with one of your recent people, professions and expertise hog machine learning, and blockchain redesigning the landscape of professional knowledge and organization. In invite you say machine learning has entered the world of the professions. The different impacts automation will have huge impacts on the nature of work and society. Engineering architecture and medicine or early and enthusiastic adopters. Other professions especially law at late you say at in some cases with leptons adopters. could you talk about you know sort of the landscape all? Of Law, profession and. They today in terms of opting these technologies. Certainly Louis interesting because it's a very old profession is. Often considered one of the. Original traditional professions along with medicine and the church. And in a sense law has used different kinds of technology might say I mean does it? Based around writing. And then the printing press and So on yet that. It's always being based on a craft. A skill which the individual person is that enables them to do, whatever is quote if you like and. said, there's never been a lot of room for any kind of automation. Certainly, the has been space for using. A people who are not fully qualified as low as about as paralegals, people like that, who will do a lot of repetitive work document checking and things like that and so on. But what will get into now is the situation where automation through machine learning. There's other kinds of artificial intelligence. is able to start constructing documents example contracts. Check dollop a documents for particular clauses and things like that mature they're up to date and this incense is. Replacing now, the kind of work that noise will do. So I think in some ways more more of of the profession of law is gonNA be subject to automation, but distinction I would many because I think it's quite important here is that A lot of what lawyers do. Is actually quite. Active that that that that the drafting contracts overtime or or they're reviewing documents to some sort or another or they're getting through particular. Negotiation. And so you know a lot of it is the same, but they build up the expertise through doing these same kinds of were over and over again and What we're now finding is that instead of having young lawyers coming in and doing what you might call the grunt work of checking documents and going through discovery applications where he goes through the size boxes of evidence to decide. which are the appropriate documents you want the emails, the invoices order, this sort of stuff that is the kind of work which is lending itself to automation. And, and so that his taking away a lot of the work which is used for trading purposes with young lawyers and is just doing it much quicker. will quickly I mean More efficiently in many ways and probably expensive much much expensive a Lotta. This work is being outsourced to you know legal process outsourcing India or Philippines South Africa places like that. So yeah, that's that's right and so in some ways, the group of lawyers who do the work which requires the skill, the judgment. Is Reducing in some ways. That pool is getting smaller. Yeah Yeah it's it's interesting. The the distinction that you make between automation. And in my job and let's call it decision making right which is you know a lot of work in the business side of this. So for example. in the nineties in large pharmaceutical company So you think about you know rnd. People might think it has really complex selection of programs that design of them, portfolio management, risk management, all those decisions. Genuine companies be say well, senior managers with lots of experience and intuition make those decisions really well right and so that's statement would automatically implied that machines can really do much there. But what we find in the mid nineties says that is systematic analysis of data make those decisions. Don't better. Actually, I've Tom to humans humans. Always seem to make decisions. These are typically bonding the decision. So if you go back and look at it, alternative experiment has not been wrong. So we have no date to say it was a good decision at typically. So human scaffold, fifty percents of making good decisions So do you know just throwing a coin or letting monkey make those decisions so? Yup We found that even complex decision making that humans hold. you know close to their you know kind of domain I'm not necessarily. So we have machines That could do that much better than I. Don't know there's an analog of that in in law I I. Think The may be actually I mean Two three years ago the royal. Society in England decided to arrange a working party on machine learning. One of the things that they put together a a roundtable on machine learning professions resolved to talk about that night and I talked about the history of professions in technology and. and. I think one of the peculiar things that came out to in relation to law is that law. Has always been a sort of on its own. If you think about medicine, for example, medicines always had the teacher hospital institution that sort of straddles the academic quilt and the practice walls and brings those people together and as a result. INCORPORATES loss of, scientific, work. Engineering work as well computing work and things like that. And that's been the first teaching hospital king into existence in in the French revolution in Seventeen eighty-nine. A long history of that. If you look at law, there was nothing equivalent to that whatsoever and there is in fact, actually a big gap between what academy does on what the practitioners in your do so that As a result as before law has come to this a quite late but what we are. Finding I think is that Certainly the management consultancy finding is that because of the nature of a lot of what goes on in legal office a remarkable amount of it can be automated. So what we are getting now is companies setting themselves up to do this automated work. So. We have companies which do nothing but contract our instruction formation sort of company. The typical lawyer would would say to a client Do you WANNA contract classes. Yes I want this for this. And loyal galway draft contract back with it, and then in the con- comes back against as I need another contract, you go through the same process. which is good for the lawyer but not necessarily good kind. What we're finding now is the company's not can think of a few of them that will, in fact, go into the company's show order contracts. Let's see the entire. Corpus of contracts you've got there and they will analyze them. And basically say, all right. We can create a new contract in automated way fairly easily it may need some modification according to special circumstances but on the whole, it's fairly standard and and they can do that INNOVA systematic world meaning the contracts are reviewed that checked. If they're going to expire marketing, you want an unable just the system will cope with that if you're. Yeah. So yeah. No No. No so I was just going to say yes. So that the distinction you make, you know in terms education sort of systematic graduate level education that because as you say, it is low in one sense of soft proficient. You say in called professions like made it to text reengineering this team has a strong concern ensuring that expertise applied in the public interest when as low little bit different from from bad and economics in some sense sort of in the same same vein we have now made economics at really odd. of mathematics you know north of analytics there. Whether they are actually useful from policy making perspective is left to debate but at least it has been an attempt to make this make economic video hard. So so I don't know A. Fascination has been in in law I very much that will happen in law. Oh there things are beginning to happen I mean let me just boob. At. One example I learned in that workshop that I mentioned the Royal Society held. With somebody from the engineering profession talking about. The difference in skills between people who above forty I'm below forty he said. If he he was about Forty Years Austin design an aeroplane, takeout pen and paper Pencil, and paper and. I don't know anyone under forty could do that would know how to do that go onto a computer program undecided there. So you can see that the incorporation of technology into the academy through to the actual. Occupation. Than phones and things is is already a standard and they're in law. It isn't law. As you said, it's still very much a soft skill although I will argue that there is a difference between the way nor is viewed in different parts of the world. So in the United States A law is I think more tilted towards the sciences. So low in economics is one of the big things in the. US. So you got a lot of people working in the of lower economics who might go onto antitrust work no competition work and things like that which across a lot of economics, mathematics and Statistics and so on. In, say a Europe Australia and so on. Law is more allied towards the humanities. And the classics. So it doesn't have that kind of scientific underpinning in that way. So anything that's going to change in these parts if you like is going to be something that's going to be imported from outside. And is going to have a very dramatic impact when whether it does An and I think that's yet to happen. I don't think there's been sort of Cambrian explosion. If you like in in law, the will be one I'm sure but but law has an advantage over engineering economics or the other areas you might. That's With the nature of the rule of law and absent justice is since law as a a way of ordering society is absolutely crucial to everything else. Then, Law and lawyers will say will look you know we have a special status here is different amid leave engineer. We certainly want to make sure bridges stay up. We don't want down but we can design different kinds of bridges. We can design different kinds of legal bills, but they're also the fundamental rules If you want to you know if you're an engineering company and you want to build a bridge in a different country, you're going to have to do it on the basis of the legal rules, which will be just vise by the lawyers according to the country's there in so on. So in in that was what? I might put in a special category if you live. Yea. Yea. Let me let me push NBA John. So. The. The conference that you mentioned you know the Internet is under forty and engineers at. So so one could argue you know from an engineering perspective could argue e- It sexually dangerous. To not use machines to build aircraft the goes you know all the technology that cap today actually help us make the trap lot safer. granted. If you sit down with a blank sheet of paper and Pencil, you might get the principal right. But, but the technology has advanced so much that you really have to use. Technology to do so in some sense, engineering is pushed back. that. I argue this myself then they were naive engineering school. I had a V exposed at my daughter bent to school. She used the same physics book. Twenty, five. meter. I argue that that is sort of backward because data speed no need for an engineer to really learn Newtonian physics anymore because it is prescriptive, it's deterministic can make machines, learn it very quickly and so why spend all? Right. So so then you know if you think about the the law field. I wonder if there is a senior argument that is to say Dan and tape really good lawyer casts lot of intuitions dot expedients to crap something Contract or a discourse, but then maybe the machine scan actually do it even better We haven't really tested that hypothesis yet. Right be almost have this idea that humans are always dominant. Or machines but that the not be true as technology lancers. So what do you think about that in the in the? It's a very important point actually because the. American bosses. being modifying its ethical rules recently to say that lawyers have a duty and obligation to keep up to date with technology. So we already know the technology is now a an important part and I have to say when when I say the word technology, I mean this at all kinds of levels from what you can do with Microsoft word for example, it strays plug ins all the way up to artificial intelligence IBM, Watson, or something like that So that if if lawyers become. A. Uses of technology whether this small firms or big firms or what have you a under the Aba now they they actually have an obligation to make sure that they are up to date. They can't just say we didn't know what we were doing. So I think in that respect, there is a there was a move. The other move that is taking place is actually the push from from the clients. Now, this you have to look into ways one is with corporate clients. The corporation seen US lawyers have to use noise if you'd like want their work done. PHILOS- money on Chiba they wanted to more efficiently They don't want the best piece of work every time they want something that works and they want officiant. UTA A and so on. So it was interesting I think a few years ago. The General Counsel Cisco. Actually made a speech. Saying that he expected his. Lawyers Law firms who worked for the company to be reducing their fees year on year. Now, that's the opposite of what lawyers normally do, which is to raise them year on year. So say that that's one push which is. Very profound push now, coming from the client himselves who are using the beginning to use their procurement departments in in the companies and things like that to help purchase legal services the other aspects which is just as important in this is if you look at the role of lawyers and individuals. So if you is what access to to legal services, it's expensive lawyers are not cheap they charge our money We don't know how to judge the quality of their work and so on. because. There was a credence which we just know that So. On this is where technology can begin to step in and provide services which are. Efficient and often quite. what very well for the individual saying that this. Technology can be seen to be improving access to justice a Lotta people. Yeah. Yeah yes. I want to come back to this. John. I think this is a very important point. So bent on put has a lot of uncertainty. Uncertainty maybe not not the right term, but it's called deterministic. It shows beatty ability and so the determination of quality it's not as easy as hard media India nearing or. Right business economics legal all sorts of well foreign that category and the application of technology sort of a different different meaning there but I want to touch on one of the things that you say in the paper, and that is you mentioned this before and that's about training training the next generation. So you savior regulating bodies professions are involved in the collection and reproduction of knowledge intended to be used by the entire body professionals, and so there was an expectation here that you know seeing it professionals. Is Providing the wisdom that knowledge mission to train the next generation now in a technology driven. regime. discuss vacations right. Our expert is going to be a computer engineer in the future. And so so how does that work from from cleaning and knowledge Asian will I think this is This is a crucial issue in it's one which the profession hasn't. Really. Got To grips with yet I think because you think of technology in terms of Predictive analytics a document review and things like this most law schools are not preparing students for this they may be a a a a causal to on some aspect of technology, but it's not something which lawyers themselves are learning. So I think what is going to happen is we're going to find a blending of skills occurring. So law firms will be sense having to bring in a range of technologists who perhaps have. A scales a straddle, both sides of the lines, the lawyers like this too I think I think we're going to find an avangard Who will begin to develop skills that allow them to talk to both sides of the line, the tech people and? Below people if you likes and there will be people who will acquire develop these skills as well but that's that's still some way down the line I didn't think we're anywhere near there yet, and part of the reason for that I think is that you know law is still a very highly regulated profession and and the regulators themselves are in the same situation they are unsure about what is going to happen and they also feel they have an obligation to. Not only ensure that. Customers clients and consumers are protected but in some ways, the profession is protected to if you like so. You know it's it's a it's a fine balancing. There I. Think. It's a fight balancing act and you'd say if the changing changing things. So going back, you know you care as an individual eighteen status of expert. Some form of encapsulation of knowledge and analysis occurs enabling professional experts, derived diagnoses, decisions, and conclusion wrapped late. and you make some distinctions. Type of learning that. Human? Beings. That the distinction between doing drive and become a gift and laster Yes yes. Yes I think that's important. So the the the the principle behind this is that Individuals can acquire a lot of knowledge in in various areas. So as I say learning how to drive a car, you learn how to change gear you though with the speeds. Braking different rates, conditions, and things like that. So. If you WANNA take that further and become a formula one drive or something like that. Then you have to undergo a very different kind of training and that kind of thing becomes a lot more collective rather than individual because you start to you're you're going to be in a group that is gonna be doing a particular kind of our driving. If you like everybody in the group has to understand what each other is doing that group, you can't have people going right a racetrack at two hundred miles an hour or thinking individually feel like they have to have a collective consciousness. About. How to drive in that situation? That's nothing like how? You and I might drive. I'm not saying we bad drivers just saying spreading very different. So I think professional work is not. That different from this in a way. So once you you can go through school and you can do your law degree and you can learn your low. We can learn you engineering's this applies to or professions really. But in order to become a professional in order to become somebody who can operate function within that. Group if you like you then have yourself have to develop collective consciousness and and one way of thinking about it is that we we can kind of tacit knowledge. This assorted knowledge you learn on the job from people, which is not always articulated in a precise formulate kind way but it's something you pick up from the way. Somebody does something you just recognize aw that that's how they've done that might not be. Written down anywhere or anything like that. But you know that's different from now exiting differently from the way that wise doing I think X.'s doing it better I and you and you just, and you can absorb that. That's what I mean by this kind of tacit knowledge and that comes about from the professional context. As how the professional context develops becomes absolutely crucial to how you introduce new ways of doing things new my daddy's new skills new outlooks if you like and I. Think this is where we're on the cost of of this beginning to develop I mean we we know it's got to be done quite how it's going to be done. is yet to be. So. So let me make a statement John and I want I want your reaction to it so eat in hard sciences eight years against again medicine. Expertise has about a consistent happy of remorse. Whereas enor- economics and business in general, let's say expertise is not about the ability to apply rules but to deal with. and at and if that is true, it has lot of implications rate. It has implications as to how we might divide work. Between. And machine in the future. And the skills that universities need to impart on on on new graduates are also quite different. So I always argued in the business. engineering contexts that universities having changed the dog they get mentioned before they're using the same. Using the same. Out Thirty four years without asking the question are those skills relevant, anymore or more importantly watch. Really relevant for a human being in the future rate. do you agree with that that expertise assert more about dealing exceptions apply? Putting it actually. I. I can see the logic behind what you. Saying I think what distinguishes? A good professional whether it's a good engineer good architect or good lawyer or doctor is is somebody who has a certain? This may sound strange but it's the. Imagination. Creativity. about. Kind of flare that allows them to function on the nausea they they've got and developed over the years and the experience. Gathered from Nova pitching what they'd be doing over the years and so on, and it allows them to see around things in ways which they perhaps would. I can give you an example if you like a law. So I'm in in Germany and some other countries. For example, there's a particular way of bundling together mortgage securities I I won't go to detail about this, but this statute that enables you do it. And then you can sell these securities and get money. In certain countries, the UK, the US, and so on. This, NICI. So in a sense to put this kind of a a deal together it. Couldn't be done if you live. So a bank came to one of the large English law firms and said, look we wanted we want to replicate this in in the UK, want to set a market this we're not the statues off there. What can you do and what was interesting was that the law firm then went back to first principles lawyers who were looking at this went back I suppose they looked at some vape basic areas of law matter your trust. And contract from what have you? I'm from that they constructed elite supplement that looked very much like the one in Germany, but without stat sheet and they tested it and it worked. Out To be credibly successful. So much so that the German government started German legal profession started to complain because they said. You can only do this by statute and these we find a way of doing it three. I suppose using law and there it is an they were vowed shops by but that was a particular example if you like of of what you were talking about, they took the exceptions they went back to first principles and said you know or How would we get? This is where we gotta get to, and this is a way right at the beginning what are the steps we need to take and and? And that's what a good loyal will do if you. Right right? Yeah. So that's very important point. So you in your paper dawn as the DREYFUSS and rice note that the proficient performer immersed in the world of skillful activities sees what needs to be done. But decides how to do it. So as we move into a and other technologies, I think it's important point it is. Right from Dad benefactor culture we have been using humans as you mentioned before in lots of with meted activities big not designed for humans I would I would contend enjoy doing things over and over again, and if you had thought of doing that, yeah, because they have to do it for living right and so so we should be moving to word It would where anything that is with pita on delegated to the machine at automation in the bottom of that and Appealed autonation you can have intelligent automation you can have you know reinforcement learning those types of things you have some aspects of intelligence into the into the two. And deploy humans Don't Miss. They're really good at in some case. I'm. So you know we've been studying the green for ages be our no close. It feels to understand mother. Heck it does You know it's not neat learning it. Oh, BBC of. thirty years ago as see that person again, you could see you could you could have a feeling. Then you've seen that before and and what the brain has done actually not only as he that pattern but also age that matter intuitively for thirty years and say, yes, that face I, guess before. and. So there are some superpowers the brain has reaped have been applying the all all. So for a technology might allow. Look I. Think Technology will allow us to incredibly complex things without having to think about too much I. Mean if you look at the way a port functions, for example, any major port these days they've got millions of containers and ships going through them all the time. So there's a lot of paper going through the you those charter parties, bills of lading guarantees. So the lot of legal work that's being done it, it's all quite standard stuff. I mean everybody. KNOWS, what needs to be done and so on. Now, some people are beginning to think while the best way to handle a port if you like I for everybody should know is to put everything that's going on in the poor into a blockchain so that you can see the whole supply chain. You see when something comes in, you can determine when the goods are being offloaded. When they're being shipped, you can stop making the payments as a result of the. Operation of the smart contracts if you like, and the whole thing would be just one quite seamless. In some ways without that much human intervention really just need oversight Some bits of coordination so on. But at the moment is still a a lot of humans are vote in that shipping people, law people, all sorts of things which is. I think insane. That's a waste of resources. We know that there are people who have all kinds of problems that require that creative flair she like as so why waste money on the routine stuff when you could develop skills to the the real need if you like in that way? Yeah Yeah. So I, want that some that bit that John Blockchain, for example, as you mentioned. So so one reason especially in the professions like law and business humans have an advantage justice dimension of trust. and you know at least our generation we don't really. At eighty level, right. So so having that. Human human touch is still extremely important for us. Now, technologies like Blockchain, for example, actually allows that trust to be tensely decoupled, right? Yeah, and I think I think you're right. Look I. Think I mean one of the reasons we make contracts is because We, don't trust each other. So we we devised these documents with all the conditions in them. Something goes wrong. This is what will happen things like that and so on. What are the interesting things? You know people really rely on contracts are met you. You draw up a contract. And the to business people stick him in the drawer I never look at again less something really really fundamental goes wrong but they know sumit doesn't that never look at that again. So you say value of the contract, what did it actually do if you look at some of the Asian countries say like Taiwan or parts of China, you have a assistant coach Guanxi, which is where people developed effective relationships by knowing each other over a period of time around business that allows them to develop trust it. So You know there are different ways of of handling trust, but we we seem to spend a lot of time on trying to minimize something You know which we don't really do a lot of if you like. So I think one of the advantages of of blockchain is that it just it removes a lot of this from from the equation if there's certain things you know that can happen. as a result off if this thing that systems. Lead happened And you know. As, long as you've got oversight and you can see what's going on than. You don't need to be too concerned about it. It will just do what it needs to do in that way and So. Again. That's still very much in the early stages, but we are seeing situations where supply chains A shipping goods from one country to another can actually be done under smart contracts through a blockchain. Technology if you live. That that is now happening I associate goodful dealing with things like gum counterfeiting if you're. Producing. Particular high-quality could site move our phones or particular pharmaceutical products and so on you know it's one way of guaranteeing the quality of the product is you couldn't I say look you can examine the whole supply chain or the data is there. And you know his Eq- code look at it and you get the whole thing going all the way back The. Again, issues around that if you're dealing with the digital. Is Much easier once you start dealing with physical products then you have. A question of how do you get that first initial digitization of the physical if you'd like to goes on so though some people I know here in Australia who? Run A company called Beef Ledger, which is trying to export beef straight beef to China using the blockchain supply chain, which will. Guarantee the security, and the quality of the goods to the Chinese consumer APP because having problems with this before. But I will tell you now do doing something like that does require that the people you are dealing with. You're going to set this up with You have to have a trusting relationship with you before you can set up a technology that will do away with the So we're still in that. That's really early days. I think another a lot of time way to go right Yeah, but the technology works it. Clean potential one could argue contracts exist because they probably known performance if you have a technology that drives that probably the of non-performance zero, then you can actually get rid of for contract. Yeah limit. It is. Not. Goes back to that earlier point I made that. Most most contracts are fairly standard. You know a routine things they're there to. Record a series of transactions payments that have gone on between people without the to do much. If you like you know once you you're you're doing the business, the contract just kind of records that in perpetuity. So the small contract just takes that into a different area and an an actually does the whole implementation and execution without people to be involved in that too much and there's something goes wrong. But if it if it all goes right then back it is done you need to you don't you think about it Right. Yeah. Hasn't been jumping to another are forthcoming people globalization law at. A time of crisis in the? Global Lawyer and so in the say Nikolai Condom Nieve a Russian economists in the nineteen thirties believed the worst economy operates long sixty year cycles Then he called K. Braves. And you safeguarding coronavirus analysis, the fifth psycho young's from nineteen eighty to twenty thirty. It's you save twenty, nineteen forthcoming John You might have. I think so I think say because I, tell you off the what's happening this year I thought my good I couldn't My God. I was just. Owners because you know a contract device these waves up into into what he calls four seasons spring summer or winter at, and we're in the winter off this fifth cycle if you like this is. All the bad stuff happens and he's news war. Famine Disease I think wait a minute that sounds Yes yes. That's exactly right. A. But one of the interesting things about contractors was that you know he he a because he's A. Solid economists are installing a dip executed. By the way you know he he got fed up ninety that was the end of Nikolai unfortunately but he. He said instead of know if you like the ownership of the means of production are being the determinate for changeover from system system, he said it's it's technology and and that the technology will drive you out of the downswing of the last cycle into the upswing of the new cycle, and and the way that works is the win. You're in this kind of winter period because of the kind of economic. Gloom pervades if you like people tend to hold back in subsurface vestment in terms of technological innovation of what have you and so a lot of energy resources, resources, money capital if you like builds up to a second point when people say we're GONNA go for this is this is it? And that's when if you like technology comes to the fall on, really drives it forward. So from that perspective, what he's saying is that you know come right about twenty thirty. If. Things are going slowly now regarding technology they're going to speed up. In. This period and that's when it will. You know really also take take off and people have looked back over our preceding cycles and they've you know it works if you like not just their. Fantasy theory there are also the people who do Cleo dynamics in history these the quantitative historians and they've done a similar kind of analysis of historical periods and said, yeah, you know there are all these citrical. Processes that take place even revolutions occur and big upset occurs and what have you and and. One of their Perspectives which I find quite interesting is that they say one of the reasons for revolutions come about is caused a lease beginning to compete with each other and and an an I look at say trump in in America and I look at the Democrats and I I I would say Modine, India I look she in China and different groups of elites who are engaged really profound struggle for the future of their countries if you live. Out which again is leading to this kind of potential eruption of activity and a new ways of doing things. Yeah. It makes a lot of intuitive sense gone. So one way to think about this also. There are a lot of excesses. So innovating go good their excesses in the system people to believe that invincible they changed assumptions about. because they don't see any. and. Financial markets to right. So these cycles and real real mass that uniquely talking about you can see the. Happening in the financial markets more clearly. But what he's saying is that he happens mortgage and you ask in this paper in two thousand, nineteen for in many ways go. Crystallization off the settling ketone economic forces lost throat ear Kublai doomed as populous. Separates nationalism and lead clients and I think they have that we have probably the answer to that. But you see I think. One of the points I was trying to make an in in this paper walls that Global Law. If you like is is, is the a kind of synthesis off chaos? How do we bring some kind of order to chaos now once you start seeing the undermining? Of his global institutions, you see trump was withdrawn from the W. H. O.. He's he's are criticized NATO he he won't have the do with the International, Criminal Court and so we've got this kind of real life tension now between a an international legal order that's being built up since the Second World War both Ekit economic and legal order is Global And so we can't just a radical globalization I mean even even with covert, we can't eradicate mobilize ation we've got to. Handle covert the Kobe pandemic on a global basis. Otherwise, we'll. We're lost it retreats to a national. Approach is not gonNA. Work? We'll be defeated in that race is going to be global. Might. Be One of my questions in in paper was will who are the people who are going to be doing this? Kind of bringing the the order to chaos if you like and that made argument that it's got to be the global lawyer. And this is a person who not only understand their national legal system but also able to communicate with lawyers and officials. From around the world if you like. To be able to develop a kind of common. Language common discourse that enables them to stop putting these things together are, and it's not just a simple massa of saying mathematically, it works this way or not. It requires the kind of pulling together of people, but it requires that sort of common understanding which. Comes out of what I was saying about this idea of testing knowledge you know as you got this kind of professional consciousness you know how people ought to behave and how they will interact with you, and then that enables you to be out of bizarre to predict how you can do things and so on and so on. That basis I think we can operate kind of global order. It had a a below the institutional level if you're not kind of private. As opposed to the public according and that will put three. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah you know I the limit John I don't know if you think this way I limit one could as. Want to stay need for. Countries what does the need for legal system differentials? We set this up with the premise that it's easier to manage small chunks. one could also argue with Edmund Affect. -nology that you don't need to segment this debate that we have done. which might make these types of issues you know. See where you're coming from and I'm going to say yes or no? Yes, I think the home range of of questions that can be handled by the technology the ones we got pay I don't chain, etc. I don't I didn't see any issues there but there are a lot of decisions that needs to be made a book in terms of putting things together and resolve disputes that can only function at a human level because it's not. These are not decisions that are simple binary decisions. If you'd like, it's yes or no it's it's often a lot more nuance than complex about I mean, one of the resources in the World Kiva Zero System, the world amendment which is being fought over if you like is water, a water is probably one of the most valuable resources anywhere and it's you often find that rivers and things like that sort of flow between countries, they form borders. And and you are you know people if you look at the Nile, ESL start stopping in Sudan throwaway down to the Mediterranean. So he goes to countries all three countries, east European and then into Egypt's and so unwell well, who has the right to put it dime at a particular place and things like that all of that has to be cooled in act. You see a not going to be done at a human level that that's what caused the skills in negotiation judgment interpretation understanding if you like of the other people, no machine can do that I got. Yes before we conclude, I want to touch on one other thing So in the paper, you say as technology and culture intersect more and more. Ethical conundrums will intensify these raising questions about the rights and obligations of robots. And go beyond as moves. Three laws of robotics in two issues of rights of all moon. Algorithm, stem serves. So this is this is an area that be Kevin babies even even really form some notions allowed rights of all modes at rights of a are. Sai, gets more sophisticated. Yes. Yes. I do. I, mean I think this is one of the issues we already know some of the problems with algorithms and and you know can we can be are they transplanted from you see what's going on the ethical issues around the construction and implementation of algorithms and things like that. But I I I think looking into the future we all going to rely on things like robots. And various kinds of machines so much more so that if you look at a country like Japan, which is a a an aging population such that it doesn't have sufficient younger people to look after the people who need looking often. So machines, I'll be part of that, and that means people will stop forming real relationships with machines and and so that's when I would say. Okay. So let's think about how we View a potential rights of machine that we give. We give rise to humans. Yes. We know that we give rights to animals. Now we've also given rights to viz in forest in some countries as well as so machines I think our. Next logical step you know do we do we treat them with respect Let me give you one. Very classic example yet the production of. Robots for sex if you like is a major industry at the moment, some manufacturers say they want to program them say that people can act out rape fantasies will do we want that I? Mean you know should we be at first of all? You know? We should be having people behave in this particular kind of way, but even an uncertain if you do it against another human being, you'll be punished for it and you say we'll a machine is a piece of property you should be you should be doing that but I'm getting to think that maybe a machines should be treated with dignity say that we are treat ourselves with. Dixie. This a kind of reflexive situation here what we? Do to machines we do to each other, and they may again due to US depending on how they evolve and and move forward in that way is a very contentious issue. A lot of people would reject that right out of hand I agree I think we've got to stop thinking about stop dining forward because I. think we're going to at some point again. I. Don't know when. But at some point we will be having to deal with that. It's a it's a very important point. Joan. So if I understand you correctly, you know that the rights to animals the rights to inanimate. INANIMATE things like Lubers The recent those exist is because of its effects on humans and can see video a clear link in the future we would see a very clear link between a algorithms and robots ended affects on human. So this is not me You know each not fantasy in the sense that yeah, robots should have rights, but rather it's a more conceptual question. Any fraud did not have rights each going to cabin negative I I think that's absolutely true. I mean just to highlight that if you like this firm called Boston Dynamics that produces. Robots and they produced these videos of these. Now, these robots are resistant being pushed over and things like that, and it was quite interesting because a lot of people say all you can't treat them in this way. This is awful and so what I mean that that's the answer for more fighting to to the extreme extent. But it I think you know on the basis what you're saying, you know how we Oakland. Hold human beings accountable to each other in an increasingly complex world machines have become part of that. We can't just have them all sitting on the edge as though they're not part of who we are, what we are and how we do things. Right. So. Incursion Johnny fuel sort of look forward five years. At. The intersection of law and technology. But you think people see sort of the biggest. I. Think you'll see it two wins. On the you know for the individual The individual, you're going to see a lot of them just interacting. With artificial Tennessee, say lost questions about what my rights for this how do I deal with a tendency agreement? How do I complain against a producer company or something like that or that's going to be automated? is fairly straightforward to do and and it will only need A. Minimal. Amount of human inside of. An intervention if you like. At the other end at the. In I think we're GONNA see more and more technology coming in because as those basic functions that are. Being, carried out by junior people or or paralegals or things like that are the ones which are going to be increasing, automating creasing. I'm. We will replace the humans and just let machines do that because there's no point in wasting human resources on that whether that means we need fuel or more lawyers That's an open question I think it will that we need different kinds of lawyers We will need Roy Moore to logically aware much more sophisticated. They don't it's be programmers or odors or anything like that, but they need to have a quite a a a a strong understanding and gross what's going on in technology in that way if you like so. Yeah. We can definitely see an. Yeah, so I, think you mentioned the so from a structure perspective in all forum DC law firm sprucing to word. It a group of equity partners. Around it by machine so to speak well, I. Think. I was in that paper or another one I. I'm S-. Forecast. Law. Firms. Being. Distributed decentralized we'll tournaments organizations running on a blockchain with with the various people. into setting when they will no I. Think the law firm is still a very strong and powerful is Shutian, that's not gonNA disappear straight away. But certainly the numbers of partners who control things will shrink. They'll that will get smarter as proportion and yes, they will be surrounded by machines and they surrounded by people who are servicing those machines. Your excellent. Yeah. Thanks for doing this weekend. John really enjoyed the conversation. Thank you very much. It's been great fun and very
It's The End Of The World! (Again
"In the village of Giddy Shem Devon England in the eighteenth century lived a woman named Joanna. South caught southpaw became convinced that she had supernatural powers and began selling seals of the Lord essentially tickets to get into heaven which people bought. She declared that she was the woman of the apocalypse as foretold in the Bible and that she would give birth to the new Messiah on October nineteenth eighteen forty one despite the fact that she was sixty four years old. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We are living through a more uncertain than usual time right now. I wouldn't say it's the end of the world but others might and half history is rife with people who claim to have been told or to worked out when the end of days is coming. The list on Wikipedia is twenty four page downs. And that's really only focusing on Judeo Christian. Prophecies everyone from peasant girls two months to the mathematician who popularized the use of the decimal point. How Theory Cotton Mather? The influential Puritan Minister who played a decisive role in the Salem witch trials proclaimed in sixteen ninety one that Doomsday would occur in sixteen ninety seven basing the date on events that were current to him that he interpreted as fulfillment of Biblical prophecy when sixteen. Ninety-seven passed uneventfully. Mother changed his forecast. First to seventeen o six than seventeen sixteen and finally seventeen seventeen. Mother didn't make any more between seventeen seventeen and his death in seventeen twenty eight but he was still certain that the end was near Jonas Wendell along with other adventist preachers predicted. The Second Coming of Christ would occur between eighteen. Seventy three and eighteen seventy four after the prediction didn't bear out Nelson Bar. You're of follower of Wendell reinterpreted prediction to mean that. Jesus had returned in eighteen. Seventy four but he was invisible that does make it harder to disprove all grant you then. There was mother. Shipton the witch of York a fascinating blend of historical figure and embellished character. Born Ursula South the older and a thunderstorm in a cave in fourteen eighty eight to a teenage mother who refused to name. The father mother Shipton looked every bit like the iconic which would he skin hunched posture. Hooked nose the works. She made a number of predictions all of them in verse like Shakespeare's Weird Sisters in Macbeth. She said to have predicted Henry. The eighths disillusion of the monasteries the great fire of London the reign of Elizabeth I and even possibly the invention of airplanes on the telephone but the first written version of her predictions didn't come out until eighty years after her death and some of the authors have admitted to adding to what she supposedly said. So we're not one hundred percent certain if mother Shipton really said the world to an end shall come in eighteen hundred and eighty one but we can be fairly certain that it didn't the cave in which she was born is now a tourist attraction along with the nearby petrifying well items placed in the well are said to turn to stone. And that's more of a loose interpretation than an outright fable. The water in the well has a very high mineral content and those minerals will attach themselves to anything in the water making. It look like the object is turning to stone. Bona snacked the witches in Macbeth referred to usually as the weird sisters but were originally called the wayward sisters meaning. Good women who lost their way and been seduced by the allure of Magic Doomsday Predictions. Could come from the highest offices in the land. But that didn't make them anymore. True Pope Sylvester the second game pope in nine ninety nine seat with the auspicious-sounding date of the year one thousand looming so Vesta in a number of other Christian leaders foretold the coming of Jesus at the turn of the Millennium and many people believed it like really believed there were riots in the streets. Thousands of Christians fled to the holy city of Jerusalem and many attended what was expected to be particularly interesting midnight. Mass at Saint Peter's Basilica on New Year's Eve when the morning of January first on and it was clear the world had not ended semester and the other Christian leaders revised their predictions. Have you picked up on that trend yet? If Judgment Day hadn't kicked off on the anniversary of Jesus's Birth. It must do on the anniversary of his death. So so Lester. The second declared the world would end in ten thirty three but he was already fifty four years old and sure enough. Didn't have to hear any gainsaying when the apocalypse didn't come the second time because he'd been dead for thirty years a century later pope innocent. The third had a less obvious and markedly less nice reason for his end. Time Prophecy innocent blamed the Muslims Christians and Muslims have had kind of assorted past and innocent viewed Muslims as agents of Satan to his mind. The apocalypse would occur six hundred and sixty six years after the founding of Islam. Which would put it in the year. Twelve eighty four. He too died well before he could see how wrong he was predicting. The end of the world requires perseverance. If at first you don't succeed try try again. You've got to stick with it. Like the founder of the Worldwide Church of God Herbert Armstrong along with his sons Richard and Garner Armstrong picked up quite a following even before claiming that the world would end in nineteen thirty. Six and only members of his church would be saved the Great Depression and the dust bowl probably made it easy for people to believe that our collective ticket was about to get punched Armstrong then turned his sights to nineteen forty-three where the second war to end all wars lent credence to his doomsday claims when life settled into the post war normal Armstrong amended his prediction to Nineteen seventy-two a significant margin of error. People sold all of their possessions to pay for travel to Petra in Jordan. Which most of us know as the Resting Place of the holy grail from the third and Final Indiana Jones. Movie where they would be safe from Roy Moore three which Armstrong said would be all of Europe led by Germany against the US and the UK. World War three did not in fact begin. Nineteen seventy-two or the next mandate of Nineteen seventy-five in December nineteen fifty four Chicago Tribune headline read Dr Warrens of disasters in World Tuesday worst to come in one thousand nine fifty five. He declares the doctor was just passing along the predictions made by Dorothy Martin a fifty four year old housewife from Oak Park Illinois. Martin believed that aliens from the Planet Clarion had beamed messages into her brain informing her that a. Masoud flood would soon destroy the planet. Her prophecies attracted a small group of followers including the doctor who called themselves seekers. Many of the seekers quit. Their jobs. Sold their belongings and removed any medal from their bodies which Martin said would be essential for boarding the alien ship. That would take them away. They gathered at Martin's home on Christmas. Eve Nineteen fifty five sing carols while they waited to be beamed to safety. This wasn't the first time the group had gathered for their exodus. The aliens were supposed to come on December seventeenth but didn't then the eighteenth twenty first and finally the twenty fourth. As the night of Christmas Eve wore on Martin's followers became understandably inpatient finally at four forty five in the morning on Christmas Day Martin announced that God had been so impressed by their actions. He was no longer going to destroy the earth. Nice recovery. Though Martin had few followers their experience has left a lasting legacy. The group had been infiltrated if you will by a small group of psychologists and students from the University of Minnesota led by social psychologist. Leon festinger festinger wrote about the whole experience in when prophecies fail a social and psychological study of a modern group that predicted the destruction of the world. Kind of a lengthy title. But we'll go with it. It was in this book that he began to explore something. You've probably heard of cognitive dissonance. That's when two disparate ideas exist in your head at the same time and you feel uncomfortable until you can find a way to make them fit somehow. Festinger observed cognitive dissonance in the seekers. Who had to repeatedly convince themselves that Martin was right even after seeing with their own is that she wasn't
Chryl Laird, "Steadfast Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior"
"I'm Jen Taylor skinner. And this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with Cheryl Laird. Shirl laird is a professor and political analyst who specializes in race and ethnic politics and political psychology and she joins me to discuss new book titled Steadfast Democrats. How SOCIAL FORCES SHAPE BLACK POLITICAL BEHAVIOR? She Co authored the book along with Ishmael White and if they analyze historical data to better understand why black Americans by far the most unified racial group in American politics and our conversations share laird and I draw parallels to the historical examples from the book and we correlate them to more recent political events. Like of course the Democratic primaries instance. This is a book that I personally will have to read more than once. It's that important. So without further ado here is my conversation with Cheryl. Layered sure leered welcome. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you for having me you know. I just have to say when I was reading this book as a black woman. It was really interesting because I was basically reading an analysis of my own political behavior. And I've never actually read it examined in this way. It was really strange for me to read this. And because I don't think that much about my own political motivations right like I think about policy but I don't think you know why Democrat. Why have I always been a democrat? Why do I never question right and that was really interesting for me yet? No I think That's literally what are trying to do with this book and we also are african-american and I'm trying to speak from experience of understanding politics in a particular way And often I think the literature thus far in some of the fields of political science sociology and other areas where they examine behavior and even in this case political behavior. We haven't really seen something that takes on this kind of question And particularly like wire wiser people doing this thing The way that they're doing it and we're able to really tackle it in a political science sort of way but a lot of it is based off of our own lived experience as African Americans and understanding that politics works differently. Yeah and so. The thing is the open. The Book Win Alabama Senate Race Between Doug Jones Roy Moore. We all remember that race for some really terrible reasons because of the allegations around. Roy Moore but what? I think what keeps happening elections like this. Is that people try to analyze and predict a black voter behavior. Right they have all. These assumptions aren't right. And then what happens? Is that black voters in surprising them like they did in this election. I think ninety eight percent of black women voted for Doug Jones then it was following that when Tom Perez made this statement online that Blackman backbone of the Party and I think that was the first time that someone at that level of leadership the head of the DNC made a declaration like that and acknowledged that publicly. I think that that's that's right. It's like it is. It is clear that the partisan norm is very strong. The loyalty to the Party is incredibly significant. And in this defining to the Party itself and its success in numerous elections and I think the Alabama election would just put that into high relief. A you're just able to really see that at work and black women being like the people at the front lines of it not only in the voter box but also on the ground like they were the ones shepherding. The grassroot efforts on the ground they were the ones behind a lot of the the poll souls to the polls or gathering people up to get them to go vote informing people about what was going on And so they are. They're they're doing that work for the Party and often just getting knowledge for it. So what actually happened in that race? Why wasn't it as predictive as people? Thought? Alabama is typically. A red state was at the mobilization on the ground that happen in the context of the election right so we have two individuals Roy Moore and Doug Jones and Roy Moore has especially this incident that comes up about Some sexual impropriety. Right like this situation of pedophilia as part of the conversation. But I also think part of the reason why people didn't see it coming is that the speaks a lot to the data that gets collected that goes into the predictive models of elections. Which is the sample sizes often in those data are very small when it comes to the African American sample And so if you do not have very good. Data data that is large in terms of the size of the black sample. That's in it. Additionally that is broad in that it's not just focused in any one location but is spread across sets of black communities the predictive nature than of what you're going to get from that data is not going to be right. Like a selection bias can create a problem with that Additionally I think people also don't know of some of the resources that African Americans are often dealing with in this case if we look at in political science the way that African Americans participate in politics all of the indicators that we typically use things like education level income on all typically are things that would say what is likely for someone to participate. African Americans have to make up for all of that because they're very resource deprived especially in a place like Alabama. And so what you then have to rely. On our black institutions black churches black colleges like organizations became the frontline for trying to mobilize people and again most types of tapping of that information through polling or through other forms of assessment. If you don't know about that you wouldn't know where to go. Look for it and so people did it. They did it not go look there. They didn't know that people would be energized. In this election. With these circumstances that play to get themselves out to vote and at the partisan role of that vote would matter so much right. Did you think that's true? Nationally that black people are underrepresented in polling. Generally I think they are. I think that's how you get often. Polls for instance. I remember not too long ago. The president had cited to a poll where he said he thought he had a whole bunch of black people who are supportive of Ham radio or something like thirty percent of black people saying they were okay with Donald Trump. The mmediately my thought was I need to see the data because I want to know where the poll was taken. Is this a random? Sample poll is a poll that is targeted to black communities. Are you targeting? This poll to black people at a certain location like what's his taken at a convention of some sort like all of that would matter because it's going to skew the data and if you're not attentive to this in the sampling that you're doing and waiting the sampling and the size of it so often times really. It has to do with the size of the sample often in a poll of maybe a thousand or thirteen hundred people in terms of African Americans that are in that sample. You'll be lucky if you see a hundred people in it well enough when you're talking about about black political ideology and I think another thing that's misunderstood about. The black voting block is just how conservative they are like socially conservative in a lot of ways and I think it's because there's this confusion around. We are generally in allegiance to a non Conservative Party. No I think that's right. I think because we think of ideology and political science typically the conservative Liberal ideology spectrum that we have is used heavily to predict partisanship and in most literature which is often used basically assessing white Americans. What we find is that people's ideology very predictive of their partisanship especially in a polarized environment for African Americans. It's different right and I think part of that has to do with how ideology works for African Americans. Black people are very politically diverse in their views. Say That again why he very click over to the partisan behavior needs to be thought about much more from a strategic advantage at the group is trying to do to be able to minority group in majority system and having a voice but people have varying opinions and a lot of people are very conservative. Especially on things like social conservatism fiscal conservatives on religiosity often as a driving force and we know from data especially from Pew Research Center. They find the African Americans as a racial group are some of the most strongest actors when it comes to their role engagement of religious institutions and those religious institutions are also African American. Right like this is like Martin Luther King talking about the most segregated day of the week is Sunday right. Like that is where they are. And it still is true. So conservatism manifests differently. For Blacks and ideologically. It also is very shaped by race. Where the goals of what people are leaning into in terms of their ideology could have a lot more to do with what they believe is important for trying to improve the status of the group even if they are varying in how they believe one would try to approach that but at the end of the day the partisanship though is done. In a manner that is trying to elevate the voice of the black community And political power in a space where we are a majority based system the one of the things. That's really interesting about that is that it's almost subconscious right. We don't necessarily like myself. I don't think necessarily my role in this larger picture of what we're trying to do collectively but we just we just do it. We just do it. I mean it's interesting because when we presented on this before we like to use this episode of black ish again. I think it's like elephants in the room. Or something to that effect about their son Junior Andrea. Both junior decided that he wants to join the young. Black Republicans Club at school. Or something and Andre is stunned and he's trying to explain it as family members and they all can't understand see China explaining to bow Chinese to his mother And they're both like what do you mean? He wants to join a republic. He wants to be like he wants to be a the Republicans like the League. Keep he wants to go to Banana Republic and buy clothes like they can't even process it because you're right it is become such a partly to be black is to Democrats and people who seem to be different from that are seen as strange right But I think it speaks so heavily to how long this norm of collective group race behavior has been informing black political behavior over
Top Day Trip Destinations from Tokyo
"We spoke we were talking about getting in and out of Tokyo some of the things to do and Tokyo and we kinda hinted at other areas that we could explore the which are either day-trips outside of Tokyo or areas. That are arranged getaways. Exactly exactly so usually Tokyo is a good hub to start from. It's accessible you can get in and out of IT EASY. Great hotels lots of stuff to do. But if you're adventurous and you WANNA head on outside of Tokyo. There's some really cool places at Tokyo when you go to Japan right well. Yeah I mean there's there's plenty to do and to do in Tokyo but if time allows exactly so we wanted to share with your couple of short trips that you can easily take you in and out of a Tokyo and we're GonNa hit you know several of those cities so last we talked we were talking about getting around via Jr. the Japanese rail and within Tokyo even from all the major airports you can get into Tokyo central really really easily. And when you hit stations like Tokyo station or even Shinjuku or Yokohama. There are Shinkon San or the the bullet trains that can take you to all other parts of Japan. And so we're gonNA talk about you. Know How you cruise around from Tokyo to other places using the railroad jerry. Easy probably the most convenient way to do it. Is Well well. I've always taken a car over my grandpa drove or my dad. Or however you remember Susan when we've traveled as family that we've always kind of jumped on. We have a car as well but Wisconsin took the Shinkansen to bigger family right so anyway so the first one that we WANNA hit. This is the city call. Hakuna I'm sure a lot of people have seen this word on a guidebooks more from friends or people who's been there. It's a very popular destination. It's an easy weekend getaway in Japan when we talk about Hakuna. Japanese people have to hit hot spring over very well known area. It's a it's a hot spring resort area it right and then you can see a beautiful Mount Fuji. Oh my gosh now. In good reason why. That's the center. Excuse me hot. Spring areas because Mount Fuji is there and IT'S A. It's still a dorm but it's an active volcano if you will. It's the tallest in Japan that is correct. Fuji IS THE HIGHEST VOLCANO IN JAPAN. At over three thousand seven hundred meters or twelve thousand feet and is the second highest volcano in an oven island in all of Asia. I'm an international treasury. Yes absolutely in. It is one of the more prominent symbols of Japan. Yes Yup it's so pretty and it's worth going. Who's the Hukou on Easel National Park Now? I sound very Japanese. It's west of Tokyo. If you look at the map of Japan right right and it takes about eighty five minutes an hour and a half or two hours if you take a probably the easiest way you WanNa take a train is by Docu or Docu. Od A K Y you railway docu railway operates. It runs between Tokyo Shinjuku Station to GonNa Yumoto station. Okay and one way journey. I think there are a couple of different types of nanny. It's a limited express right right and then the other one is a little bit slower Express trains coupon right. But I think it's like a little bit over my two thousand. Three hundred men check the rate. You know the latest one but It's it's a very reasonable and you can also take a bus in like I said I when I was younger. We always just drove. Takes a while on the traffic begins. We always travel during the holiday seasons. Four hours you know five hours Roy Moore. I know so. We highly recommend that. It's this whole amount area. The Hukou owner area in capacity hakuna shrine. Which is a Shinto shrine. And it's just a there are tons of hot springs. The food is great is easy access from Tokyo. I really really highly recommended such a pretty area to visit and there's such a variety of things to do over there as well. I mean not only do you have this magnificent view of famous Mount Fuji? I mean on a clear day. Perhaps you can see Mount Fuji and the distance from Tokyo. It is southwest of Tokyo. Roughly about one hundred kilometers southwest to Tokyo and again it dominates the western Side of the prefecture there. But when you get up towards it and you can see it in all its majestic beauty. It's quite breathtaking. Very lovely so just a few things. You know that I can point out the fun things to do the top attractions in Hukou Hukou hot springs. Oh my gosh is there are a lot of them so you like hot springs. I think it's like a must do and in from our talks about The shoe were big fans of average super clean. It's the scenery that surrounds hot springs and the hospitality. And it's multi course. Meal comes within. It's nothing like you know our Western style. Spa It's a very different immersive experiences. Definitely some you should check out. Troy experienced one hundred percent and other attractions. The other one is a good unease very very famous e you can also smell the so far though soul. I but it's the it's a crater created by the last major eruption of Mount Hakuna and one of the interesting thing is they sell these eggs as you see them everywhere throw in. It's called healthy eggs and and they believe it adds seven years to your life if you eat eggs about if you want to give a shot. Hey who can? Who can't use another seven years right? Come on yeah but but Walker done is actually quite a site. The big crater. It's interesting yeah. It's really quite something and when the weather is nice spring summertime fall is beautiful with leaves changing color one about lake. Ashi no go A. S. H. I. N. O. K. O. R. She no-go it's a lake. It's it's a Caldera Lake. It's just a picturesque. You get a beautiful view of Mount Fuji. You when you go there. There are a lot of like a boat trips that you can take. That's another run on. Luger attraction there that if you go to coney area I I really recommend that as one of the attractions you can go and check it out. Oh I haven't mentioned the the very famous Hakone Shrine Omega. Gosh Yes oh my God. This is so famous you need to go check it out right. It's it said it's located at the end of the lake. Ashi NOCCO that I just talked about It's in a forested area. You see lanterns and Tori literally you gauge. The regular dance right. Yeah it marks the entrance to the shrine And it's pretty impressive. That's really pretty absolutely and just to see those those gates as you know because I don't know something about that. It just reminds me of Japan. We've seen them in different shrines and stuff like that. Oh my God. Spectacular blends in with the scenery in a bill. Leads you to the entrance of the shrines. And it's just it's absolutely spectacular to
Has Canada reached Peak Craft Beer?
"Do you know how far away from you your nearest brewery is. I have no idea where you live of course but I'm willing to bet. The answer is a lot closer than it used to be. No matter where you live in Canada and this goes I. Small towns of like three hundred people in cities of more than three million there is a craft brewery around the corner over the past decade. The rise of craft beer has actually been one of Canada's biggest entrepreneurial success stories but how long can that really last as an example? There are four cool little India Breweries within walking distance from my house. And I love it but I would have to be stupid to expect them all still be thriving and five here. Wouldn't I I mean there has to be a limit to how much Canadians love their beer. Right Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story Stephanie. Marotta rights for Global Males Report on business. Hey Stephanie thanks for having me no problem. We're talking about one of my favorite topics. We had to do something. That's when I picked up the phone and said I'm calling you to talk about beer. Nolan's hung up on me amazing So start by putting into perspective. I guess because we're GonNa talk about this whole industry just how fast and big the rise of craft beer in Canada has been. It's been incredible. I think one of the reasons the story is resonating. So much with people is because no matter where you are in the country. It seems like there's a new craft brewery opening every month. Almost it's just skyrocketed so the number of breweries over the last five years has more than doubled so in two thousand fifteen. We had three hundred and eighty breweries across the country. That is now almost a thousand. It's crazy it's been astronomical and really that growth looks very different depending on where you are in the country so in Ontario British Columbia and Quebec. Those have the most mature. Craft Brew Industries at the moment and the between those three provinces they make up more than seventy five percent of all the craft breweries in the country but that growth has really caught up in other regions as well so last year. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia saw some of the fastest rates of newbury openings in the country but really Alberta led the charge on they saw sixty percent increase from seventy breweries. Two hundred and twelve breweries. Year-over-year year over here. So it's been an incredible amount of growth and when you have so many players coming into the market over just half a decade. The growth is just astounding. So how does that happen? A part of that a small part of it may be is the cool factor. No no that episode of high met your mother when Ted and Barney say that they want to open up a bar. It seems like a really fun place to be. But what's really interesting? Is that when you actually get to speak with these brewers? They have the most incredible stories. These are lawyers and engineers nurses and former Labor workers who are leaving their careers to come into this burgeoning industry and they're starting off by brewing in their garages before they scale to larger brick and mortar institutions. And they're starting off in these communities. That are really hungry for some economic development. So they're creating jobs and they're bringing money into the area. That's an attracted a ton of investment so from government investment arms like the BBC to private equity investors. A ton of money has been flowing into this because everyone wants a piece of this pie of on one end the success story of of creating jobs in an economy. That looks like what we're in right now and then on the other side have being able to say that Own a piece of a brewery. That's something really fun to say right. Answer the government gets into it then because these are popping up in neighborhoods that could use sources of jobs and economic development and so they will give them start up money essentially. Yeah through a couple of different methods. So we've seen a lot of investment from from governments into the sector so last year we saw the federal government and the government of Ontario Invest One Million Dollars Into Twenty craft breweries in Ontario. And that's in addition to a one point six million dollar investment from two thousand sixteen now while that sounds like small amounts in isolation. We're seeing a number of provincial governments across the country. Do exactly the same thing and further that we're seeing economic development arms like the BBC and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency investing in in Craft Breweries and providing them with start up loans. When you put all of that together with a national scope that's a ton of money going into opening new breweries and then on the flip side. We've seen a lot of private equity go into this as well so often times when breweries can no longer access government funding for whatever reason it seems like a pretty easy thing to go out and find an angel investor venture capitalist. Who who wants to throw a million dollars into into a berry so this growth is still happening this year as we're talking. Yeah so the growth is expected to continue to climb. I was chatting with the Canadian. Craft brewers association and they expect another two hundred craft breweries to open up this year alone. That's a twenty percent increase year over year compared to the thousand that we currently have so. It's it's just going to continue to rise but there's gotta be a tipping point right like how much beer can Canadians reasonably consume. And I mean that seems like a funny question but it's not like at some point we're going to saturate the market right. I don't doubt the Canadians can drink their fair share of beer. Sure at all But I've seen a number of industry watchers trying predict this tipping point. And this moment where we're going to hit peak craft beer and I've had a lot of conversations with Roy Moore is the people who fund And Brewery Associations and from what? I'm hearing across. The board is that we are at this tipping point so we're seeing a number of craft breweries closed. Get put up for sale or diversify away from craft beer altogether and a large part of that is because Canadians are drinking less beer really. We're seeing it in the numbers so fifteen years ago. Canadians drank so much beer. That beer sales made up for fifty percent of all alcohol sales in the country. Now it's at a point that's only nine percent and that gradual decline is quickening now. It's not all doom and gloom. Canadians are still drinking beer. Just in different ways so one bright spot is that comedians do seem to be drinking more craft beer even though beer sales are declining overall. So if we look at the L. C. B. O. Just to is late that as an example last year craft beer sales increased twenty seven percent year-over-year now that is slower than the forty percent increase in. They saw the year before in twenty teen while. They're still seeing a spike. It's beginning to slow down and despite that big surge in people buying craft beer. It's still only accounts for ten percent of total beer sales at the L. CBO. It certainly accounts for more than ten percent of the shelf space. It does luckily for grab brewers. It does a lot of liquor. Boards have been increasing. Their shelf. Space Craft Breweries little bits every year. Like Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation. They've increase their craft beer shelf space from twenty-seven percent last year to thirty two percent this year so we are seeing marginal increases and even at the L. C. B. O. I think is about eight years ago. They they listed thirty three different craft breweries and now that's increased to one hundred and eighty. The issue is that that falls far short from the three hundred breweries. That are in Ontario alone. There are one hundred twenty breweries that can't get listed and even if you are listed that doesn't mean that you're in every store across Ontario depending on how much beer you produce. You might only be able to get listed in two or three Elsie. B O's within a certain distance from your store so that speaks to something that I wanted to get out because you talk about. How startups for Craft Breweries are exploding? And everybody wants to get into it. And it's not that hard to get funding and get going. How difficult is it to sustain a craft brewery as as a business you know how many of these Newbury's actually break even Make money statistics. Canada says that only fifty percent of the small to medium size breweries in the country are profitable and from speaking. With brewers. It takes about five to seven years to start turning a profit now. We're at an point in candidates beer industry because craft beer really started to grow about five years ago. So we're just now hitting that point where craft brewers are starting to figure out whether they're able to make ends meet and what. I'm seeing a lot of something that I'm hearing. That crafters trying to do is they're trying to get in on different segments. That are growing faster than craft beer so at a point where consumers are moving away from beer and drinking more wine. They're drinking more spirits more ready to drink products. So I'm hearing. The brewers are getting into distilling. They're getting into some of. Those funds Seltzer products. That are more low calorie and speak to a healthier lifestyle. So you're starting to see little tweaks and you're also seeing some brewers start to realize that maybe they can't make this work after all this podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? Well you need a plan and we'll be back after this episode to you how. Rbc's my advisor can help you get started even if you only have a little you can visit our BBC Dot Com slash advisor to find out more right now or enjoy the rest of this podcast and we'll be there at the end to tell you more.
Why Trinity Audio is sticking with mechanical voices over human
"Do you think that For Your company I was utilizing in your stuff on your website. That right now you have a lot of you know where it's kind of voice coming from like a computer sounding voice. Do you think that you will eventually eventually US real human voices or voiceovers or what kind of your thought or that going in the future. Great question and I contemplate about a lot I I think no first of all I think. No Ano- explain why when I started this journey about two and a half years ago the quality of text to speech solution and was nowhere near where we are today any just getting approved on a quarterly basis new releases new features. It is based on a I in no so we as we say union office we feed the machine with Roy Moore dead. I need getting improving. Will it be like human voice. Well no probably not but I think it's already good enough. It's only GonNa get better and I think that's another thing that is growing as well. The parallel channel Uman are interacting with machine on a daily basis more and more so the human years starting to be more tolerant from Canada. Voices so I flew the fast. I wouldn't say to Mitt Buddy to get definitely get close enough that the majority of the people will have tolerance. I gotta get used to end. They don't think about all that mechanical for me that would be fine and that stuck again about the benefits that they have communicating any kind the content.

Dave Grening, Rick Hammerle, Gabby Gaudet
"McGee Jay Brennan and Dave Greg Good Morning the hard act to follow right there well. I think you're up to it and much like we did with Jay. Hey we didn't get a chance to talk last week. Day I saw some of your thoughts on paper and on twitter but quick hit from last weekend the Jockey Club Gold Cup Diku and everything that came with it didn't agree with the call but that's par par for the course for me and the stewarts here good rates by both horses of Abu kind of the call takes away from the performance of both you know Roseville in sort of honor. I thought it was Kinda. Overshadowed what how well they ran I thought it was in solid effort. You know Roy Moore your skin and people give them credit for so he's tactical enough that you're going to go back to the race. In California that he won he was four why but right up on the pace so he can be he can play from the start and still finish finish which is a good thing for him to have going into the classic and Code of honor you know stepped up against a couple of quality older horses and and still continues to show improvement as Shug shoveling transfer your kid and I'm glad they didn't go into stuff. it'll it'll spice it up a bit very much and we talked to show yesterday what turned into a was supposed to be a you know. Tell us about the decision ten minutes turned into forty because because show and you can talk about the current horses and then you can talk about his Breeders Cup record you know he's he's run horses in the Classic Eight Times. He's got two seconds and third and I asked him if he thought you know this was as good or the best one of the best chances that he's had in a classic and he kind of feels it is I think so in part because he's got a quality improving horse and in part because I don't see a real stand out in the division there you know I I was even if Mackenzie had one last week is still affected him at a mile and a quarter. I think come back with a pack a little bit and now I think he's you know emit commit pack there. I you know he he he was not impressive last week and and right now he doesn't have a jockey so that could be a hindrance so I I think the the you know I I think the visual the classic is releasing. My is right now pretty wide open well it it certainly enhances the classic and we got some. Jay's thoughts will also wait for some other news in decisions. Tacitus you know who I could send as many as three with a late and Yoshida. We'll see what the tacitus call is but have you talk to Jimmy later in the week about preservationists. I don't think the preservation and the clock berry good yeah. I kind of. They were Iffy iffy. Even before we got through the jockey there pretty traditional people. You Know Oh you go to the classic going for a good race. You don't go you don't travel cross country now. It's in your own backyard. Maybe maybe say okay. I'm hearing but the put him on. A plane ain't off that race. just doesn't make any sense to me and. I'm not sure what it was tales right now. I wouldn't be surprised if maybe they they just you know. Have you know conclude are dealing. Just say thank you. Thank you for the memories. They were well some other thoughts thoughts about the weekend the the two year old swept by Chad Brown and not necessarily by Chad Brown surfers Dave that were all that highly regarded regarded coming into the early fall. It looks selflessly ran a decent race when she got in her debut. She was a bit why she was just what about a half length behind her stablemate and you know. She got a very nice trip. The other day and you know you beat a field that I didn't necessarily I think was seller but that didn't necessarily like her either so I can't you know I'm not saying that I choose my choice but look it's very you know. Handicapping is hard art. When it comes to the Grillo it's simple to spend on Chad Brown. It just just do it. Does it seven and eight. I've never seen I've Nev- I don't know of any race that he may be bad for our security security and and and dumb or something that just a guy dominates the race like Chad Brown at least in New York dominates the race Jeff Brown dominates the Mus Grill and just you know next year when it comes. I'm just circle the Chad. He's got more the ones at about boxing and you'll walk out with a little more money so any payment structure solid rates you know. I I liked about structure that he showed you different dimension in the first race. It was a slow pace. He was up on it and then he finished and then they got a bit of a faster pace and close close so you like versatility show. I need to know more about what else is in that race before. I say an annoying Kim and enter a the you know a victory in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turpin juvenile fillies served interesting I said they were aware of it at the time but selflessly not nominated to the Breeders Cup now looks set clemens got that money hidden in his closet somewhere so he can easily put up the supplementary see but it it was a weird kind of a strange thing maybe just crack but be supplemented for the raiders stuff to run and I'm sure she will do well. beyond the two year old stakes stakes midnight zoo in the Belle Dame and got you got you got her legs stretched and did what was necessary. The race as that ended up surprising to some degree aside from everything that went on in the Gold Cup four Horsfield in that Vosper that ended up being really exciting and forensic fire and imperial put on some show down the stretch cool horses you know he's still still Harvard have trouble taking that race threatens fire and last year the parts race horse averaged one the rate just a cool towards I mean that's a super cool horse right there in so small but he's got such big hardy so fast and you know I think they call it a little bit adviser prize when Friends Fire Collared Him and he still had something more to offer and he gave it to him and you know maybe maybe hard race before the Breeders Cup will help him in the Breeders Cup opposed to a couple of cakewalks that he had especially last year Vosper. You just walked around there and now last year Frears Cup. Chances may have been compromised the fact that he just doesn't run it and go to Churchill downs I mean I think he's on there three times. The probably three worst races throughout the worst rates is I thought he may well enough to del Mar a few years ago when he was in the Mitch Breeders Cup and second. I believe but maybe there's hard rates will help him. battle tough because it's a tough rate expensive very very competitor's. Maybe one or better rates on the car to the totally and chance a lot on you know. I guess you have to see what Omaha beach that rates for tomorrow how he runs. A and B what they use it for work. the the the sprint has potential to come up here one of the best races on the card and I think that race will have imperial head registered. Well turn our attention attention to tomorrow and there's a lot there's a lot of intriguing match-ups paper going into Saturday at and there's actually a nice set races on Sunday with the thirty the flower bowl in the present. We gotta start with Champagne and a green light. Go Ah to forego the hopeful. After the track was a a a slop. I don't blame Jimmy Jerkins at all for taking that route however he comes into the champagne now having to go a mile and there are at least is three others that are are major players here not the least of which is Barkley tag and Saka Toga the last time they had a two year old like like this. They kept funny side against New York breads until going to Florida for the holy bull this time they're going to go for an early open company opportunity the and it's at the highest level the first thing. I want to say that this race is there is a major scratching the race three technique. Jeremiah texted me this morning and I put it up on twitter a little while although has a lung infection and we'll come out of the race and I thought he was a significant player in the field so it's down to six source field going at that. Tis The law law you know of course is very impressive. Beating New York reds first time out had shin issue that Barkley took care of list about three weeks total of training but it's gotten back in I saw I saw at least two if not all three of his three of his works here and they're very solid workout you just wonder if the layoff going a mile with the one rate is going to happen ready to do it now. The layoff is very similar to green like oh the day difference so it's not that sort of balances out but green go with tested in stakes company and also has races opposed to one and I just like I just really liked it. I I don't know what he's going to become. I don't know how far is GONNA WANNA run but I just like the way both starts getting solid well built for uh-huh hardy type of horse who just has a great hind end you know where the power generated from and I think like the mile and beyond and I think this has a moment for Jimmy. Sake that the horses say how down and continue on the campaign Jimmy. He says out born whatever that might be but I think it'd be awful strongest training like that rate.
Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Preview & Best Bets for Paris Longchamp
"The dulcet tones of John Hunter who will be joining us on the final broadcast in the near future one of a number of new voices who will be appearing on the show in the coming months we're also gearing up for national hunt podcasts as well by the way of jumps fans. You can get excited about that but you can't not get excited about the ARC. It'll be live on sky sports racing at five past three assuming the French actually the out of the race to the correct time it's her second time running para longchamp and she bids to make history as John said in that fantastic Promo but become the first horse to win three in a row rick see. She is the queen of the turf. If she wins this race the publicity alone will be invaluable but in your mind as we look at this from from a pure punting perspective. What's your thoughts on the Ark currently look. I think the the market is near. The TAUPE is pretty accurate. We're able enabled his concern. Look she's odds-on she. She deserves to be outs on she. She is the these the the most likely winner but look I think in terms of a bash what I'd be doing in this race is probably taking her out of the equation and I'm playing a horse in the without Marcus at the moment which were recording on Thursday at the ground is soft at Longchamp and Dan. I don't think it's GonNa get too much quicker. I'd say the quickest it's GonNa get as is good ground for me that means. I'm just just tended to stay away from south staff. He would it be in the bed. I think for me without enable if the ground was good too farmer that but I just I'm not sure your he's going to be as good on this kind of ground. The price differential between Japan and the two to three older horses magical Michael Guy Eighth and wild is is colossal in my eyes vile cost in terms of pure ability alone. I think he can get eighty into one. They're about what is his chance. This is a proper made one twenty s horses east coming here on the back of lobby prepped eh before that were common here in the back of a career-best bind enabling the King George. I just worry about the ground for him. So we're concerned. I'm wondering the belt him balancing which I think peace can tell us more but I think the balances is a real American term. Suggest is a horse comes comes back after a long lay-off through injury or a setback and then runs a massive race and has a career based and that's exactly what gifted Abadan Badin Adin when he won the race out there a few weeks ago I just wonder will he be at the same level again and after all that then the more solid horse for me and at the prices is magical and I think magical is the best without without enable look she. We know in four star start against the neighbors. She hasn't beaten are but to collect the bet here. We can finish second to her again so that that's that's where I'm GONNA go. I think magical without is the is the date the most solid play in this race as a former ballydoyle employees all this talk on social media but how magical is not going to run in the ARC. She's she's. She's not going to run their because look at bet fair. Look at the prices. She is the not going to run. The exchange prices for ballydoyle horses are completely and totally totally useless. It's about as useful as a MARZIPAN DILDO. It's no guide wants so ever as to whether or not a horse is actually going to line up in erase the lads make decisions at the last minute but also Aidan O'Brien had state categorically that after she won the champagne stakes yet the planning planning the arc unless something changes exactly so I don't get it. I'm not trying to be a smart ass here by the way but like you could take advantage of of a massive price about her. During the week you still can to a certain extent it. Just it's beer baffles me. You need to put that in perspective as well. It's a win only market and and she's being beaten four times by the favorite so you know and people on bed fair whatever you know have a lot of money they can have strong opinions and put those kind of racism altern. That's probably what they were doing what they were doing Bush. The first mistake you may day or Kennedy is listening to people on social media and thank you you to all of our listeners who interact with us and say very kinds of Roy. Moore's not the number one writer about Eliezer. Don't you know so according to social media. I thought yeah look she's being. She's being declared for the race. I don't think unless you suggest they are less went wrong. She had a setback. She was always going to run here that would that was. I think aiden has been saying that since the start of the season the main the main goal at the second part of their campaign was the act can talk now she's here and they wanted an awesome campaign for that's what she was always being aimed for and and here she goes he says having b-actor at a big price price selfishly and then was being made to panic with all this talk on twitter about the fact that she wasn't. GonNa run screw you people. You had me panicking. She's going to get possibly ably thrashed by enable but Vanessa before we started recording this podcast you were doing in-depth analysis by yourself with no help from anybody else about the he drove bias at Longchamp so take us through that because the draw has come through enable is entrapped nine. Japan comes out of ten so tests comes out of one. There's a lot of talk from various different pundits and experts about the positives and negatives about this so your view on the draw for the leading leading contenders in the ARC. Yeah we'll just this sort of before we so tipoff any horse or anything just to really paint a picture of how this race is likely to unfold obviously chaos plays a huge huge pot and whether enable wins a third arc because what does will directly affect what Frankie has to do the neighbor and has had the worst possible. Essentially he is drawn on the wide outside. Install twelve and sought Saas is is drawn on the inside install one which is also the worst case possible for him so for both of those two leading challenges to enable they have the worst case draw immune while enable frankie perfectly happy android nine magical. Giovanni the side. That'll be absolutely fine salsas. Obviously we'll watch him. Draw aw back and he'll be called on the rail. We've seen him be stuck in traffic issues before that's going to be a huge problem for him. A meanwhile gear is going to have to use up a whole load of energy. Komo stole twelve gets the front and get across to lead which is what we know. He's GonNa try and do so that is a massive negative for him because he's used up valuable petrol and the tank just get to the front and soft light. Hughes who saw sausage pace bank has a much better drawer said he'll also be going into the front gate has overcome all these hurdles that's even before the races properly properly got going meanwhile enable will be dropped him probably a couple of off the rail hacking along with Frank. Here's we know and sought SAS is probably GonNa be dropped out and like I say have to come the traffic issues now one of the things just this also of note here is that Sea of claws last year essentially teed up what we are going to witness on Sunday which is of the CNA Guca because last year we all night with a little bit last traffic problems and having got rocking rolling a little earlier sea of claws house could easily have beaten enable. Now we know all the facts we know that enables eight seven eight five cents fit comes here this year much but a form Yada Yada Yada fought without and outside of class last year meeting that traffic and having to overcome many at the hurdles that sought size is going to have to come she. She essentially set the blueprint trip for how you beat enable yes. She didn't but she sat how you do it. If that makes sense because she with another stride she would've got there as we all know. There's no denying line not so. C- classes now laid down the blueprint about how to be enabled. We look salt. SAS who takes loads of the boxes but see of class loss yeah. He's a progressive three year old. He comes here off. The back of impressive wins. All season 'cause recco times. Yes that Glen I tait. You'll know about the ground that is touch concerning but essentially he's got a very similar profile. Obviously gets the way to allowance from enable as well. Now's how's cools. He's GonNa have to step up massively and he's going to have to overcome that draw the traffic problems but sought sizes connections will be looking at last year's his race and we'll be looking at cf class and we'll be learning from that and we'll be taking from that and working out a way to not get in the soda trouble Chic and because because that following that blueprint is going to be the best way to beat Santa Claus assaults us me while I think yet in a worst case scenario draw for both I mean what what connections of gas and salt sauce with due to swap the drawer they give a million for that because it would it be an ideal the other way around but they have like gauze played around and they've had an absolute shocker both of them gas is I'm with you. Declan worried a bit about about the bounce also obviously the former that German race you couldn't take away by how visually impressive it is it will aw and as they turn into the straight I imagine gas to be about four lengths in front enabled to be heading up the leading pack. Franchi will be sat is cool waiting to press the button gas will start coming back to them and frankie will press go butter and with a furlong to go the stands will erupt will -rupt it'll be wonderful for all of about six seconds and then the petrol gains will start to flicker enable. Hey Bill will suddenly not like winning quite such impressive fashion and out the back. Salt Saas will come with Ratto accuracy of cross but he went eh this time.
Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.
"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our

What to make of the ISIS bride
"A an ISIS bride has been married as many times as I have her name is holding isn't she? The hostess on the today show copy completely different same first name. Right. Yes. But I mean, so your name is Curtis. I if there was a serial killer named Curtis. Nobody's gonna confuse just wanted to clarify Hoda Muthana. She's twenty four years old. Did you say Putina Newton Mouton actually left Alabama four years ago? So she was a little Alabama girl when she was twenty years old. To go to an ISIS enclave in rock, Syria, and she got married, and then she that guy died says fighter and then she got married again in that guy died she got married again. Sweet. And she's got one child issue resulted those from the second husband quick, marriages curse, you know. What happens when you join ISIS, right? Yeah. Whether it is American aircraft rushing aircraft Syria craft. Yeah. Him away. They end up strafing you with that napalm and weapons of mass destruction you go right to Allah and the seventy two. Hoda, and you you I mean what happens? Well, the courage took her captive as they have the remaining women and children of the ISIS fighters, as you know, our allies share of home to this day. I still don't know who they are. Because there's so many of them, but we're prepared to get out, depression, and has shed we get not Assyria. I actually disagree with him on most issues, I'm in support of him on this. But he said to every country that had foreign fighters who came to sharia. And now, the Kurds are keeping them safe and secure. They can't do it anymore. You're going to have to take your own ISIS fighters back, or at least the remaining women and children. And I understand that and Muthana wants to come home. She wants to come back to the United States, despite the fact that she called for the spilling of all the blood. She calls for terror attacks to be launched at Memorial Day events you wanted people to be run over. She wanted people to be. Slaughtered. Their necks slashed here in the United States. She was calling for a wedge Jiangyin spokespersons for her family that would like her to come home to sweet home, Alabama to the state of judge ROY Moore made their plea to all of us through their family spokesperson, recruiters were basically, grooming. Her for this the cut off from her friends from her family from her Moscow. And that does happen. I mean that that does happen. But the fact is that she was a teenager when I was a teenager. I know the difference between right and wrong. And so they're they're trying to say that. Oh, she was brainwashed. I figure out. Well, she deserves to come back and what live her life. Okay. What? No, no, no, no. You don't go. You don't go. Nineteen at the time. Okay. Let's see if we can listen to the young lady herself described to a British media outlet. Why it is she wants to come home? And why it is. She wants all of you out there listening to forgive her. And to give her a second chance. I don't know. I thought I was doing things correctly for the sake of God. And when I came here, and I saw everything with my own eyes. I realize that. Mistake and. My teacher deeply deeply her son's future. So she'd she says it she when she got there. She didn't realize so she didn't know anything about the beheadings the mass beheadings with the guys that were down on their knees and the orange jumpsuits and all that she she just didn't know anything about that. I beg to differ. He's a liar. Hold on. Would you give her an opportunity to make her plea because she's also making a plea not just on behalf of herself. But her eighteen month old Johnny the child's child's fault been planning literally planning to go from once. I got hurt twice money. And I was so scared. I broke my phone from what I heard if they if they were to read my messages, I would have been capable. She she she says towards the end I've as we're moving in she tried to escape to grips of ISIS after her husband's kept on getting blown into pieces. I'm sure that she was probably thinking, maybe not the best place to be Alabama's not looking so bad. Now. What would you do? Ladies and gentlemen, we have to take her back, president has shed. We're out of there. And he's told all of our allies from Europe. Hey, you're gonna have to take your ISIS fighters back their wives their children and figure out what to do with them. What would you do with this young lady young lady who has an eighteen month old, Sean she wants to come to Alabama? What do we do with her? What are we going to do with people here who have husbands that go on these horrible, you know, shooting sprees and murder sprees and they're involved with it. I mean, you boy she's part of that. She's an accomplished to this. She's an accomplished having people, tortured and beheaded. I mean, she she's not innocent. Wait, wait, wait. She said can I quote, what she is shed. And she is released this to the world, not just the United States. She has said, please, please forgive me for having been so ignorant. Hey, I was really young ignorant, and I was nineteen when I decided to leave nineteen is not young nineteen is drinking age nineteen year going to college. I believe that America give second chances. I wanna return on never go back to the Middle East. America can take my passport, and I wouldn't mind in the bit. My god. If I cannot imagine anybody who thinks that it's okay for this girl to come back and just go on like she lived before that. That's outrageous. All right. Well, we'll leave it up to a vast audience. One eight hundred eighty eight four eight WABC that's one eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two this Andrew in queens. Welcome the Kurdish and Juliette Honey he on WABC. Why think hedgerow was there? Let's go to Chris. Who's actually calling from New Jersey? Welcome the WABC, Chris. Hey, guys. So I think what they should do it. There's one pick that child away from her. Of course, put it up for adoption and have her give her testimony with the noose around her neck and her dangling feet in the air. No, no, no, hold on. Chris no-one said she killed anyone. Went over there to court ISIS. We have. It was a guy would we say? That's okay. Well, we we have them in Gitmo. We haven't we haven't put in front of a firing line. People are animal we have in killed anyone responsible for nine eleven. We haven't killed anyone that we battled in Afghanistan. We caught him. And we put him in Gitmo doesn't mean they don't deserve it. I know, but you're suggesting that she be put in front of the firing squad. Well, kill anybody. She anybody. Fear coast big tingling for life. That's what I was gonna let me let me tell you. This is what she said in in two thousand fifteen she went on her little social media posts. And she said you have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy enough of your sleeping, go on drive bys spill all of their blood or rent a big truck, you know, appealing to her ISIS supporters potentially here in the United States renovate truck and drive over them. Veterans patriots Memorial Day parade go on drive bys and spill all of their blood in the next two years Curtis. You know, what happened in December twenty fifteen fourteen people were killed twenty wounded when a guy attacked a holiday party out in California. Then in two thousand sixteen Omar Mateen, shot forty nine people in their Orlando night. You suggest somehow they will listening to this nineteen year old. I think that's the whole point of. That's the whole point of these people from the United States and other European countries going over and joining ISIS, that's the whole point there. Whatever price to pay, but we haven't killed any of the males who actually killed Americans and others. As far as we know. She didn't kill anybody. And this guy is suggesting should be putting firing squad but adopted kid naturally. Adopt. Take the kid we take the kids fault. Let's go. If we can the Mike was calling from queens walk the Kurdish and Juliet Huddy here on WABC, Mikey. Mike. We're having a bit of a problem here. Let's go to Larry in Brooklyn. Welcome the WABC. First of all Kurdish. She never heard of a firing squad for treason, but second of all what I would do is. I would take a back and give it a title recreation counselor. Okay. Let let a lay down to every convict doing lights in Florence max. And Colorado, if she laid down for ISIS, you could lay down for them to oh man for El Chapo, Pablo shorty goose mine who will be going in foreign this. Well, why would we want to reward them? Why would I want this? I think they're overly cooped up. That's why I don't think twenty three hours a day. And a shell is humane. I think it's more you made the put this woman in front of a firing squad. Wow. Keep it L shop in in in a in a hole for twenty three hours. I don't have a problem with not being humane, El Chapo in this girl. You realize we haven't done anything to any of the males who actually killed people plotted planned organized. She came back here that we should put her into supermax because I do I want to say why not. You wouldn't put them in supermax thinks she's a danger to society leads. Are you joking? She sought there rented telling people telling her followers here or anybody that she could try to entice with the wonderful life ISIS out there. She told him to spill their blood in the name of ISIS and kill Americans patriots veterans. So what are you gonna do Senate Gitmo? I don't believe they have any females on Gitmo stand to be correct. Bring her over to supermax Florence Colorado. That. It'll sell for twenty three hours a day. The problem with that. Let's go to E. Welcome to Curtis said, Juliet Huddy he on WABC in high. I just like to say that she can't come back here. If the military handle it that's one thing, but we have politicians, and we got lawyers that a lawyer Harrap in an instant, and what should happen to these ISIS people's one or two things hand them over to Assad number one. And I don't care what from Britain the British UK America wherever they're from. If they if they did that or the next best better. She just bring him back. Let's use a boat you keep them on the boat. And with us, the most shocks and yo-. Right. Well, Ian, you can't hand them over the Assad. You know that and. Like, I said we only have to date one person we're taking back the rest of the world is taking back multiple fighters who left their country. So they have a bigger problem. So far, it's just this one woman, and you're acting as if she's coming. There's tens of thousands of women who joined the breathing and no more. I don't need tax dollars going towards funding heart when she comes back here. I don't need a jail cell Fredin three hawks and a cot every day. She didn't kill anybody. You realize that? With the terrorists. What curtis? I'm hearing we we have serial killers. We have women who have been serial killer who are not put to death eventually killed people. And we feed them. We take care of all they were meant we had a previous caller, and he's treason, treason, you're fighting for the enemy, it's treason. So what do you do then use?

"Senate seat in Mississippi the special election, pitting Republican Cindy, Hyde Smith against democrat Mike Espy the race was a slam dunk for Hyde. Smith until video surfaced of her joking about attending quote, a public hanging. Trump who plans to hold a rally for her the night before the election came to her defense today. She made a statement, which I know that she feels very badly about it. And it was just sort of said in jest. I she said she's a tremendous woman. And suddenly a democrat is a fighting chance to win a deep and deep web, Mississippi, Martin savage is out front. You know? Thanks deep red Mississippi Republican city Hyde Smith should be cruising to a runoff victory. Instead, she's run into a problem.

At Mississippi State university. She jokes about voter suppression saying. The remarks it's well in the state with a history of lynchings and voters oppression and when her democratic opponent, Mike Espy is African American. We do not need to reinforce those stereotypes that have continued the hot out state and Schaaf high has refused to apologize repeatedly deflected questions about her public hanging remark during a news conference with the state's governor. Statement yesterday. And it's vailable where we stand for. And that's all I'm going to say about it embarrassed, the latest Advil, the campaign uses Hines miss words against her better than this Mississippi, and that's joke. Just how much of an impact controversy is. Having voters depends on who you talk to. If people really truly are understanding what she's all about. I don't think that will check them. Made it very clear both to me and a lot of black mississippians that. The Republican candidates. Do not really have our best interests at heart. The SP campaign is counting energize black electorate who made up thirty three percent of the voters in the initial round the voting earlier this month as well as possible crossover voters now reconsidering their support for height.

Where To Now?
"The mid terms have come and gone for most of the country. A few races are considered to close to even call even though at least one candidate for governor is claimed victory in Georgia. My home state Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate for governor. And the sitting secretary of state is claiming victory against his democratic rival Stacey Abrams. No news organizations have called the race as of this recording which is five nineteen pm on the eighth of November. An brahams camp has taken legal action endorsed county claiming mail in ballots weren't talented the democratic candidate isn't giving up without a fight insisting that all votes haven't been counted. And with the number so close at fifty point three percent for Kim and forty eight point seven percent for Abrahams. She's hoping to force a runoff at the very least. Now, that's a sixty two thousand seven hundred twenty two vote difference and with the three hundred thousand plus voter purge surrounding Kim that narrow margin is significant improving out all votes have been properly counted while Kipp has moved on to put his transition team together and resigning as secretary of state Abrahams refuses to accept Kemp's on office declaring him the winner. When ninety nine percent of the precincts have reported in camps camp is convinced. The math is on their side. And that no matter the number of potentially uncounted ballots. It won't be enough to trigger a runoff as an Abram supporter. I have mixed feelings with the outcome of the election. And what's transpiring right now on the one hand, it potentially makes Abrahams look petty in shallow and a stark reminder of the twenty sixteen election when Trump made statements about his potential loss, and how he might not concede conceding isn't a legal requirement. But we don't need another ROY Moore scenario. On the flip side is the mistrust surrounding camp and his role in voter suppression. The voter roll purge was dubious at best and clearly was targeted at African Americans in this regard. I believe Stacey Abrams has every right to fight and seek transparent verification of the results. I'm concerned. However at what cost. At what point do we acquiesce? To fight another day or or do we for Georgia as with other states that had gubernatorial races? There's more at stake than whether a Republican or a democrat occupies the governor's office. The twenty twenty cents is is very important and lands will be drawn influenced by which party sits in the governor's mansion that's huge in very important as it will have an effect until the next census comes around in twenty thirty. Much like supreme court Justice choices the impact is long and lasting. For me. I think this is a fight for the heart and soul of Georgia. A new heart and soul, Kip ran attack ads accusing Abrahams of being too radical and wanting to turn Georgia in the California. California not entirely without problems is either the sixth or seventh largest economy in the world. California is a leader in environmental conservation, a leader in basic human rights in regards to the LGBTQ community a technology later. I mean, what's wrong for wanting those things for Georgia? I mean, we're already considered the Hollywood of the south because of the number of movies and television shows made right here in Georgia. What's a few more steps in the right direction? It is time. For the old white men to stand down step back and let the future in. We can either start efforting change now or we can keep fighting for another chance in another day. It's it's either now or sometime in the future in change is coming to Georgia. Wouldn't it be great? If we could start working on that right
