Who's bill this. I'm bill curtis is going to reach a three quotations from this week's news. If he can correctly identify explain. Just two of them. You will win our prize. Any voice from our show you might use and your voice mail you ready to go. I'm all set all right. Here is your first quote. I think the democrats what they're doing. I pray the democrats know what they're doing. That was a texan quoted in the guardian talking about how democratic lawmakers in texas managed to prevent voter suppression bill from passing this week simply by doing what by leaving the state by running away. That's exactly right forty. Six democratic lawmakers fled texas to prevent the statehouse from having a quorum echoing the thousands of democrats who had previously fled texas because it was texas now to be honest. Running is just not the texas way. The texas way is to trap yourself inside a small fortune get slaughtered so that someday it can be a weirdly disappointing tourist attraction. So what you're saying is running. Away is not the solution to my problems. I feel like you guys are seeing. How good this is a worked for. Eugene yeah yeah. So far works. Great so far so far has worked for the democrats. They jumped on this charter plane. And they went to dc. That shows seriously are nobody goes to dc july and and this is all true because in a picture of them on the bus from the airport someone saw a case of miller lite. Obviously that was a plan if it was really something the democrats brought it would be like. A case of mike's soft lemonade. He's explain this to me so it the reason why they fled is because if they're not there the rest of the state house can't vote on this thing the only way the democrats could stop it because all republicans are voting for an mba outnumber the democrats in the texas state. Legislature is to leave so that there is no quorum. Now one reason they went to dc. Is that texas has no legal jurisdiction there because the governor of texas. Who very much wants to pass. This law could have sent texas state troopers to their house to grab them and bring them to the house. That's the most texas thing i ever heard you. Either come or we will bring you. We will send chuck norris he exactly so the texas legislature is is very limited in terms of its time it's part time legislature. So the the right now. They're in a special session. Called by the governor the last through august so they've to stay away through august but the governor says that as soon as they come back he will call another special session until this thing is passed so basically there in exile in the ideas. Well you can't stay away from home. I mean you know you can't live in a hotel away families. I'm a stand up. Comic began. Expect wait so they all have part. Time jobs like they. They're all like pool cleaning or yeah weirdly. They're all cleaners. i it's interesting texas democrats. There are other job. They're all outdoor piano players. In austin i think. I just have to say i'm gonna lose people here but i think austin is a really annoying city if you're gonna be in texas gopher like a real texas city like fort worth amarillo austin in the portland of the south. It really is i. One time was in a diner in austin and asked for jelly and the server literally looked at me and went. We don't have that product here. But can i offer you a tomato. Rhubarb com poked. No yes in energy like. Are you kidding me jelly. I mean meanwhile in fort worth any kind of restaurant you go into they'll just.

How to communicate complex technical topics with Anna Skoulikari
"So you didn't always have a technical background and now you literally have a job explaining very very technical things. Tell us about your journey. Where does it start for you. So i think my journey into the tech space starts off in london when i was living there and i ended up doing a u x boot camps or user experience design boot camp and that was where i learned how to design digital interfaces so mobile apps websites and that was kind of manage reduction into getting hard skills and getting into the space of tech and the ended up working as a designer in london and after a while working as designer got really curious about coding. Because i really felt like as a u x designer. You're kind of architect. You can create the blueprint of what a digital product is gonna look like so what a app. What's gonna look like what you're not the construction company. You're not the one that gets lukman and actually builds the thing. So i got really curious about. How are these things that we're designing actually built so basically after that curiosity piqued and i ended up moving to barcelona and when i moved here i decided to study coding so i went to coding bootcamp. And that's where. I really got technical skills and where i i learned to code so tell me a little bit more about the. Us tax experience. What tools do you work with with you as if you're not necessarily coating but you're still working on products. What does that role look like. What tools are using that picture for me so in you ex design. You're going to be using some sort of software or to create your digital designs or often called wire frames. At the time. I had learned sketch. Honestly it's the world of tax. So i'm sure that there's like a jillian new tools that have been created the main thing in user. Experience design is about thinking from the user's point of view and having empathy for the user and thinking about how you can design a digital experience. That's going to be smooth and user friendly and tell me more about boot camp. What was that experience like for you. That was really crazy experience. Because if somebody had asked me five years ago whether i would learn to code i would tell them like no way. Why would i learn to code. I remember actually being younger. When i was twenty one one summer i was working in a startup accelerator. And i remember at the time i would meet a lot of people that worked in startups that needed developers. And so whenever people would come up to me and say i don't know what to study. I don't know what to do. I would say studied computer. Science study coding. I just know that there's so many jobs out there for developers but whenever they would ask me like why. Aren't you studying. Coding out saying well you know. My mind doesn't work like that. I wouldn't be able to do that. So when i did move to barcelona and decided to do this. Coding bootcamp it was kind of a big personal development journey for me to make my fear of something unknown and uncertain and to just learn something new that had previously never thought you know would be something i would ever attempt. What made it so scary for you. I think it was just that. I had no idea what to expect and that i'd never attempted to learn something that technical so it was just the fear of the unknown. I think yeah. I totally appreciate that. So you have an interesting perspective because you've done both the signed the us side of things and you've actually built product and then the coding tell me about those two worlds and where they intersect. How do those jewels come together for you. And how does having know both sides of the story. How has that impacted your technical skills so go soo worlds. Come together for me in my first job working as a developer after the whitcombe so after my quitting bootcamp i ended up getting a job working as a front end developer in a company here in barcelona and while working in that job i realized that i had to really understand how to use get version control. Basically for anyone that doesn't know get is the way that coders track the versions of their project. And it's the technology that they used to collaborate with developers. And i was terrified of get. I had learnt the basics sort of at my quitting boot bootcamp. But it's when. I arrived at my job and i realized that i didn't really understand how it worked. And whenever i had to do something that i thought was complicated using it i was terrified and i thought that i was going to destroy the repository so i always had a call on the senior developers to come help me and at some point i realized okay. I want to face this fear. This fear i have get so i decided to really master it and to really learn it really well what i realized then was that the way that it was taught online was not really user friendly to people coming into tech from non technical backgrounds and that i myself could actually teach the topic in a much simpler and more human understandable way so i ended up creating this online course teaching get. It was just this creative idea that came to me and i thought okay. I should do this. Because i can help. So many other junior developers or other people that need us get that aren't extremely technical to learn it in a much easier way than than my journey had been so i created this online course. And that's where i feel like my technical background and then my communication skills just came together. What happened was i put that course on me so to me as an online course platform and it became a highest rated course on you me. And that's what. I realized that using that skill of thinking of things from the user's perspective and having empathy for people and thinking about how you can explain things in the most simple and tangible way was really helpful in explaining technical concepts. So that's kind of how those two worlds together dot experiences sort of. What led me into the next chapter of my journey where i decided to enter the space of tech communication and tech education. So tell me about what you're doing. Now you have this background. He have this developer background. You created this really incredible really popular course and today you're technical writer. Tell me a little more. About what a technical writer is. And how all those experiences impact what you do today so a technical writer honestly. It's a job title. That can vary extremely from one company to another. It's not something that is extremely while defined so in my case technical writer is writing developer documentation of documentation even support documentation like articles. But you can talk various other technical writers and they may do completely different things but for me. Technical writing is just a way for me to combine my tech background with my communication skills. And i've always been a writer. I really love writing. It's the way that i can express myself the best. I'm actually also a life long journalist. I've been journaling for the last ten years so writing is a really big part of my life. So it's really cool that now. I've found a way to merge my love of writing with my ability to communicate technical concepts into my job. So you wrote or created. I guess this course get learning journey guide to learning git version control on you to me that you mentioned earlier. So let's get into what is get and How did you make this course yes. Basically get is a version control system and it's basically a program that you download onto your computer and you use it in order to keep track of all the versions of your projects and also to collaborate with other developers and it's really important and the really cool thing about it. Is that actually almost anyone that writes code uses it so it's not just something that a back end developer or front end developer uses. Its for data. Scientists data analysts. Anybody that writes code and that needs to keep track of all the versions of their code can use it and not even just developers also technical writers use so it's something that kind of is a shared experience among a lot of people in the tech world in terms of how i got started to actually build the course in the beginning. I thought that i would have to learn this really complicated animation software in order to make videos. I'd never made of course before. I'd never even explored how people make online courses. So what i ended up doing was at the time i was working as a front end developer and as part of a new product i was working on. I had to learn view. So view is Front dan framework or fronted library that developers use. It's like react. Is another one. And i learnt reacting my boot camp but i had to learn view and i really love the online courses. That view mastery. Had so what i did. Was i contacted the people that work of you mastery. I contacted adam jar. And i asked him. What do you guys use or to make your online courses. And he told me we use keynotes. And that's when. I realized i don't need to learn some really complicated animation software in order to make my online course. I don't have any excuses for procrastinating. Start creative project. Actually all i need to do is to start using keynote and keno animations and with that i can build an online course so i started making one presentation her lesson and it was all just me hacking away working with these keynote presentations and then preparing lessons and recording. My voice teaching these lessons so it was really just knee on my own doing the bare bones version of an online course and just figuring out how it could present things on the screen in a simple way and honestly my main principles that i tried to stick with wasn't minimalism. So keep things as simple as possible and consistency
With 'Raya,' Disney has their biggest animated action hero to date — and yes, she's still a princess
"Chang says the new Disney film Riot, and the last Dragon is not just for kids. He calls it a gorgeously animated fantasy adventure with a hopeful message. For this moment, the movie began streaming on Disney plus today. Ryan and the last Dragon is the lovely moving surprise. Its big selling point is that it's the first Disney animated film to feature Southeast Asian characters. Like so many movies that break ground in terms of representation, it tells a story that's actually woven from reassuringly familiar parts. Didn't mind that in the slightest. The movie directed by the Disney veteran Don Hall and the animation newcomer Carlos Lopez. Estrada brings us into a fantasy world that's been beautifully visualized and populated with engaging characters. And it builds to an emotional climax that I'm still thinking about days later. Story is a little complicated as these stories tend to be It takes place in command Ra and enchanted realm inspired by various Southeast Asian cultures and divided into five kingdoms, named after a dragon's body parts heart Thing, spine, Talyn and tail. Before they became extinct centuries ago. Dragons once roamed the land and served as friendly guardians to humanity. Their magic lives on in a Jule called the Dragon Gym, which is kept in a cave in the heart, but the other four kingdoms covet. It's mighty powers. One day all five factions come together and try to reach a peace agreement. But tensions erupt. Ah fight breaks out, and the gem shatters into five pieces that are scattered across come, Andhra. This opens the doorway to an ancient enemy called Bedroom, a terrible plague that turns people to stone. Actually, a hero must rise and save the day. Her name is Ryan. And she's a young warrior princess from heart voiced by the excellent Kelly Marie Tran from Star Wars. The last Jedi. I Ryan manages to escape the drone, though her father, her body whose leader of heart isn't so lucky. Now Ryan must recover the pieces of the Dragon Jim, reverse the damage and banished that room for good. This is the first time we've seen a brave young character embark on a quest for magical bottles. And Ryan and the last Dragon is rooted in traditional fantasy lore with the Lord of the Rings and game of Thrones being just the most obvious influences. Movies, Intense scenes of sword play and hand to hand combat. Give it a tougher, more grown up field and most Disney animated fantasies. My own young daughter had to cover her eyes a few times. Some other recent Disney princesses, including marijuana, and Elsa Ryan has a bold, adventurous streak and isn't all that interested in romance? Unlike them, she doesn't even have time to sing a song. That said the movie still has plenty of lightness and humor. Screenwriters. Quick win and Adele Limb have provided the usual Disney array of cute critters and lively supporting characters. None of them is more colorful than see Soo Ah friendly water Dragon who is magically resurrected during riots journey. She's the last of her kind, and she has a crucial role to play in the story. She's voiced delightfully by Aquafina doing one of her signature chatterbox comedy routines and selling everyone of ceases and naturalistic wisecracks. In one scene, she touches a piece of the dragon Jim and magically Lights up. Which riots sees as a hopeful sign. You were glowing. Oh, thank you. I use Alan Rivers climb. Maintain my know this'd my little sister office magic. I got that glow in your little sister's much jack. Yet. Every dragon has a unique magic. Okay, What's yours? I am a really strong swimmer. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. You touch this gym piece, and it gave you powers. You know what this means? Right? I no longer need a night light. What? No, you're still connected to the jumps. Magic, not means you can still use it to save the world. If we can get all the other Jen pieces, you can reassemble it and, well, the drooling away. And bring my bar back and bring all of commander back Ryan and sees his journey takes them toe. All five kingdoms of command ra all of which are so vivid and transporting, I found myself wishing they really existed. More than I could have at least seen them on a proper movie screen. There's the town of talent, which is built at the edge of a river and the desert wasteland of tail where Ryan and See Soo must enter a cave of obstacles straight out of an Indiana Jones adventure. As the two of them search for more dragon Jim pieces. They, of course, pick up a few friends along the way. There's a street smart boy who cooks a mean shrimp Con ji and a toddler pickpocket, whom I found more creepy than cute. The movie's most intriguing character is no Mari arrival. Princess from Fang, who's voiced by Gemma Chan. As a side note. Chan and Aquafina both appeared in crazy rich Asians, which, like this movie was co written by Adele Limb. Mari and Roya used to be friends until the fight over the dragon Jim rip them apart. Now they're bitter enemies, and their emotional dynamic is fierce and complicated in ways that relationships are rarely allowed to be in Children's animated films, especially between women. Contrast, See, Sue is all feel good vibes. She's a dragon, after all, with little understanding of how treacherous humans can be. She doesn't get by riot and the Mari distrust each other so why they can't just set their differences aside and defeat the drone together. It's Caesar's sincerity and purity of heart. That makes the stories finale so unexpectedly stirring, especially now. Our fates are closely bound together. It reminds us as it builds a case for forgiveness, reconciliation and mutual sacrifice. The emotional power of riot and the last dragon sneaks up on you. Its lessons aren't knew exactly, but it makes you feel like you're learning them for the first time. Justin
"soo" Discussed on Entrepreneur on FIRE
"Don't trust your team or this person saying this and that about you and so they're trying to isolate you And then you know exhort a form of control over you the other thing is they will go from praising you to the eventually like putting down or making. Use the all mike. You're not enough or that. Need them and it becomes very confusing. Because you're ready emotionally hops So those are a couple of things that do happen. You know in these relationships we have to really keep our eyes open for love bombing. I had never heard that phrase before. I mean i was talking about dropping value bombs. An entrepreneur is on fire. But i had never heard of the love bombing phrase but i mean when you described it. I'm like oh my god that literally makes so much sense than the isolation. I mean man. I have seen hat. I've had friends who've been isolated and by the way. It's not just always men to women like i've seen it with one of my best friends where she was doing this to him and like it was super obvious and he just became like a different person as a result and luckily he did not end up with that person. But you know that was happening in front of my eyes and then the praising you to putting you down like that transition right there. That's something that is an absolute telltale sign. And i don't know if you've seen this Selena but kate night. Literally is of pretty timely. Actually we just last night watched. The paris hilton documentary. For the first time it came out. I think in late. Two thousand twenty. Yeah on youtube. It's a youtube original and it's crazy like a quotes that she shared some of her abusive relationships which she said she's been at least five abusive relationships but something that she said that that might resonate with you a little bit is. I thought that their anger proved how much they love me like when they were screaming and they were so mad and she actually had some bruises and some some physical issues as well with some of these guys but she was like. I literally thought that it was their anger. The proving to me. We'll of course they're mad because they love me so much. They didn't let me this much and then they wouldn't be mad and that's how she talked herself into it so another kind of thing to think about what we're talking about these telltale signs but fire nation. We're going to be really getting into details about what happened after. Selena shared the story as well as something significant happened in her life less than a week before the story was released. Which honestly like. I don't even think that i know about so. I mean we're going to really be having some very interesting conversations when we get back from thinking our sponsors in twenty twenty one.

And then he fatally stabbed a third woman. And then two hours later, a guy with a gun screaming Allah Akbar was shot and killed by cops in Avignon. So then there was a guard at the French consulate in Jeddah. Saudi Arabia. He was stabbing wound, stabbed and wounded by a knife. Then two other men were arrested. There was another guy was arrested in Leone. There was another guy's rested elsewhere in France, and this is because Emmanuel Macron defended and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I will give credit where do free speech He defended free speech when in discussing the those the cartoons. He traveled to Nis. And he said it was clear that France is under attack because of our values of freedom and our desire not to give in to terror, he says. I say with lots of clarity again today we will not give any

"Will become real. I think it's time for a dinner break as usual. Liang's cupboards were bare. So can you guess what she did? She twirled the paint brush over the table as if she were painting a bowl of noodles soup sure enough. A real bowl of soup appeared with fragrant wisps of steam, curling off the top. This is unbelievable. But I have to remember what the old woman said the brushes. Must be used carefully and wisely. And for good. Only for good Liang's sipped her soup and drummed her finger on the table. Suddenly her eyes lit up I know! The emperor's taxes have been so hard on the spillage. I'll take the paintbrush to the marketplace helped my neighbors anything they need. I'll painted for them. If. That isn't using the brushes. Powers for good I don't know what is so the next morning. Liang strolled through the crowd at the marketplace offering to paint for anyone who was down on their luck. She found a poor farmer who lost his one and only workhorse. Here you go, friend. I've painted you a strong black steed plus a harness plough. She met a little who had torn his one and only coat. How about a warm new jacket? KITTO? Plus a colorful scarf, and she came across new -sition, who was so hungry he had sold all of his instruments for food. How about if I paint you? A brand new flew closer plus a drum. And Bamboo drumsticks, word of Liang's enchanted paintbrush spread, and over the weeks that followed. She used the brush to paint for anyone in the village who was struggling. But it wasn't long before the news reached. The ears of someone definitely was not struggling. The emperor, remember him the one who always wanted more more more, my my Josh. Thank up the things I could pay with that silver paintbrush. PA, I could take over the entire world. I must ask for myself. Then he called for his guards and sent them to gangs village with orders to bring back the young woman. And her enchanted Sylvan!.
Former Congresswoman Katie Hill Does a Postmortem on a Lost Congressional Seat
"When the news is bad? I know that it is tempting for me to tune out but I also know that sometimes examining bad news and figuring out how to learn from it is a good thing so with that semester. Monaco and I are starting this week. Show with the conversation with former California Representative Katie Hill. Katie resigned from her seat last October and in a special election last week a Republican one bomber. So where do we go from here? Let's ask Katie are welcome Katie Hill. Welcome back to hysteria. We're so happy to have you back. Glad to be back. Thank you first of all. How are you doing man That's like a loaded question. I feel like I'm you know I'm I'm okay. The results the election were pretty horrible. You know in a way it was of what we were expecting. But you obviously didn't ever want and at you know it's just like one thing on top another in life in in figuring a way to get up in Russia yourself off in new forward was I was again when I was a kid. Reverses a still own a horse and the biggest thing that you were taught was being you fall off you get back up and get right back on and that's just kind of against what length is so drilling down into that trauma? A little bit last week was was the special election in California's twenty fifth for everyone listening. What happens and were you surprised when you say what happened do you mean why did we lose or yeah yeah why Jillette. Why did why did why did she was. Yeah well I think the biggest chapter honestly is just people in a special election. Democrats don't show up and you've got the rented. Republican base. That was particularly riled up because of my scandal and excited the opportunity to take a seat back. I mean that was that was literally what they were plotting. They were trying to you. Know to find something they. They found something. They exploited it. They got me to resign and this officers their opportunity to take back. The seat they felt was stolen from them in the first place remember. It hadn't been held by a Republican ever in its current form and they really did not think that it's possible for someone like me. Let alone any Democrats there So I think that they really rallied around this opportunity and from what we know they actually did some very despite the fact that you hear them complain all the time about ballot harvesting. They had some very organized efforts around ballot sting and Them for figuring it out. Because like you know that's to me it's about helping people be a but the churches were really mobilized in getting people to providing drop off centers. And saying that they're gonNA mail to use of swing by the church in you know do it in your car or whatever and we just didn't have something like baton. I think you can also partly attributed to the fact that Democrats were pretty disenchanted by things right. Like you're GONNA be really really frustrated works so barred and felt like you were. Finally I heard over a felt like you were finally represented and have all go away. So quickly is is really disenchanting. Should okay so there was a special election in California's twenty fifth special action in Wisconsin. Seventh both know that these are anecdotal elections in every district is different but you can still kind of extrapolate things on a maybe on a larger scale from this like. Do you think that Democrats should see what happened in your former seat special election as a wakeup call I do. I think that it shows that you remember mine was one of the Houghton quote safest swing seats right. Hillary Clinton when by seven. I want by nine. This isn't one of the seats that should have at risk. So what it means is that you know. Depending on what things are looking like November especially depending on the energy that's coming from rate than district's length. The ones that we flicked that were that were ones that that trump won by sixteen points are really really wants. We need to watch out for so we should give up or stop paying attention to the house just because the Senate is looking like it's within reach or obviously presidency so that to me. The biggest of all first and foremost the second is that as we are adapting to this Nalen strategy. How we doing that right? Field is what has been our strongest most important. Get out the vote effort right and that's modified I don't take. You should give up on it all together. I think they're Balkans Altogether they have they have a different base of people who they can go soo and again reliably that will reliably answer their phones that they can you get to things like drop off ballots churches. But we're GONNA have to modify field programs to to frankly make sure people know how vote by mail. When they have many many of them have never done it before especially in these lower turnout areas of to begin with which are usually the most. Democrats held Katie. Beyond even just in. How do we re engage the Democrats that helped you win by nine points when now they're also facing the pandemic childcare challenges on employment and things that are just like so catastrophic question? I think I am hopeful that the loss actually was a wakeup call for a lot of people might have thought like while the seat will be fine. Now they're like okay. I have really have to bow part of I mean honestly. I think that the the district itself is democratic leaning enough now that if we get to turn out that you know is usually expected in November election. I think she will win. And we saw we saw it happened with the ossoff special in Lucy. Macbeth one in general. I think we're GONNA see that in this case but it still. You know it's something that can't be taken for granted in terms of the support that I had the volunteers mobilized rabbit. I think that's that's going to be the same thing right is how do you figure out ways of ways of getting involved? That may not mean. Move leaving your house And how do we get people excited about it? Especially when the Senate is in play in California and the The obviously dilatory votes are going to be there for Joe Biden. No matter what so. I think I think it has to be like maybe you know maybe the Gee let's get so excited about meeting the seat back because like that. That as it's more like Oh you fuckers. Hello and stand up and what's ours okay. You said the word motherfuckers. Let's expand on that a little bit because we we chatted briefly about this About this race and how it personal it was to you and how personal it was considering the person who ended up winning the seat. Can you talk a little bit about the people who helped promote Christy Smith opponent short so the first person the first slew of images that came out was through the publicly came out was through red? Sti His enemies are images of You. That were released without your consent without taking taken without your consent. Got It and the only person that could have done. That was my accent. Spin obvious denied it. And so it's a it. So that started at Red State. The person who published those who who was the investigative reporter has been a longtime Republican operatives in the region who writes I guess on side. Honestly don't really know what I know that writing as is not a full-time thing for her and she had worked for one of my previous owners. She worked for Steve Night in the past and the day after the day. After I resigned she endorsement ARSIA There were a number of other people who were involved and again. This is information as circling through like facebook groups and drew a the random people that are on the ground in. It's not it's not like a niffer court case starting to like that bitch so many of the people who were supporting my sem from the beginning. We're the ones that need new. Had the photos and some of that is actually on logs. There's still posted out there. A Joe Messina. And things like that so I think For me that that was the biggest thing right like it was misleading. That my favorite before all of this came
Explorers & Contenders: Xue Susu
"Today we're GonNa talk about a woman who was adored by politicians strategists poets and pretty much. Anyone who met her are contender of the day was lauded for her ability to shoot targets from a moving horse an athletic feat that perhaps was more accepted at the time due to her many other skills and more typically feminine pastimes. Meet Xiujei Sue Shuhei. Sue was born near the southeast coast of China. In the fifteen seventy S it was the latter half of the Ming Dynasty. An era in China now known for its population boom as well as vast expansions an art and trade are the fifteen eighty s Shuhei.

She was an incredible Archer and horseback rider and she displayed skills publicly referring to herself as female night. Errand fellow poets were so stricken by her depicted her in their work one female contemporary wrote a flower goddess with chivalrous mind. Your spirit can be confined by no means.

How to Get Major Publicity with Selena Soo
"I was telling you in the enjoy talking all about how to get major publicity and to overcome your fears of being in the spotlight. And there's literally nobody in the world that is better prepared to draw value bombs on this topic than Salinas. Ooh I mean she is somebody who's done both of these things. She's got major publicity for herself and for others and she overcame her fear of being in the spotlight. We're going through all of those things we're going to be taking you through those three steps of getting the publicity of your dreams but I don't WanNa start there because I want to start sleeping with your personal story so break that down for us. Sure so my personal story around publicity begins when I was in my mid twenties when I had this quarter life crisis I was living in New York City. Making forty two thousand dollars a year working in a nonprofit and even though I was doing meaningful work on one level there were just things that maybe not happy at my work. I wasn't in a good relationship. Just everything I felt like it sucked in my life and I got into this deep depression and at that time I learned about a woman's Life Coaching Group and through that group. I got exposed. Always incredible experts authors entrepreneurs thought leaders. And I remember reading these books and just thinking that when people are suffering. And there's many reasons why we suffer whether it's a lack of purpose or we hate our job or we have a health issue or relationship issue. We're not just looking for information to solve our problems. We're really looking for inspiration and so I became so passionate about elevating These role models because I felt like these people these experts these authors by two bigger message of possibility where other people can see a piece of themselves and can help them get on a dark spot in their life became very passionate about getting the word out about these. Incredible people naturally started making connections favorite expert. That I admired and the media started just landing people a ton of publicity and that led to me eventually starting my own business. There's so many things I love about this story. Fire nation but one thing. I want to draw back to that similar. Selena's story in my story and so many other entrepreneurs that you hear on on fire that are now entrepreneurs on fire. What do they do they identified? They identified a struggle or an issue they saw or experienced in their own lives and they went and they created a solution for that. Because you were introverted in you overcame that. I mean you were a person that wasn't like look at me. I'm Selena sue and like loving that type extrovert personality. I mean you can do that. And I've seen you do that at events that we've co hosted together and different conferences that we've spoken at. I mean you can really play that card but you were introverted and you overcame that and you have these four essential lessons that you learn along the way that I would love for you to pass along to fire nation absolutely so early on in my business. I had this wonderful client. Who was a huge fan of mine and she said Selena other people to hear about your amazing work. I want you to also be reaching more people and so she invited me to skype video interview with her and that was extremely uncomfortable for me because I was all about putting other people in the spotlight. I wasn't about drawing attention to myself and I even had this limiting belief in my mind that I meant to be a behind the scenes person. I don't have the personality or the charisma to be out there in the public like these other entrepreneurs and but ultimately I thought you know what this person really believes the me she wants to help me and I should do this because I do understand the benefits of publicity so we did this video interview together and I was very nervous leading up to it and during the interview as well and she sent me the recording afterwards I was watching it with my interns and as I was watching it I was covering my face with my hands like I was watching a horror movie and I just noticed that you know. I wasn't smiling. I did maintain good eye contact. I was speaking so quickly. And meanwhile my insurance work counting my filler words. Because I wasn't toastmasters at the time because I sucked up public speaking and I wanted to keep track of like how I was doing. And at one point they had counted up to one hundred. Thirty seven filler. Words and I was like ladies you guys and just stop counting clearly. This is a disaster. I'm so bad at this incredibly embarrassing. There's no way could share with my audience. I look like such a full and my intern. One of them said Selena. I actually think it was a good interview. You some really great stories. Some really valuable advice. I actually think that people would like it and I was so stunned but then I thought if it's true if it's not as bad as I think in somebody sent out and stepped away from my computer for a few hours because I was you know horrified but also what you know. It's not as bad as I think. I got responses back and people were like. Wow I've never seen one video SELENA. That's so exciting. I love that story. Got a really special way of connecting with people and it just blew my mind and so I've taken away for big mindset lessons which helped me to this day and I think we'll help your listeners. So number one is that it's never as bad as you think we are our own worst critic and so we go into any kind of performance. We are looking for everything that we did wrong. And that's what I was doing. I was like fixating on all the ways they messed up and I had my interns like make list whereas other people are not focused on that. They're really focused on your message. So just know that it's usually uh spazzy think that's number one and then number two is that you know it's not fair to compare ourselves to people who are so far ahead so we may be comparing ourselves to our favorite. New York Times bestselling author or an incredible speaker. Who gracing the Ted Stage? But the truth is that those people have put many years into their craft and chances are they've hired mentor is whether they are ghostwriters. Or speechwriting coaches or a business coach or whoever it is who got them ready for those kinds of opportunities. So it's unfair to compare ourselves directly to those ahead of us and then the mindset the third mindset is to understand if you want to get to a higher level where you know you could be you have to understand that the beginning there will be a big gap and the only way to bridge that gap is to actually do the work to be willing to be imperfect and then the very last mindset shift which I think is the most important is just remembering that when you're doing this work and you're showing your message. It's not about you it's not about. How do I look on camera? Did I use any filler words? It's really about you showing up because there are people that you want serve and help and so I find that when I do that. I really takes the pressure off in a big way nauseous with interviews but whenever I'm connecting with any influential extraordinary person even when I just got starting my business. I really didn't have anything to show for myself but I wasn't afraid to approach these huge people because I knew that I was connecting with them because I wanted to contribute in their life and add value. And so when you're showing up to just contribute there's really nothing to be afraid of because you know that you know. Their life is going to be better. When you're part of
Visualizing Fairness in Machine Learning with Yongsu Ahn and Alex Cabrera
"So let's get started with the with the topic of today so today we talk about a really really relevant topic can needs It's particularly hot right now. We're GONNA talk about bias in fairness in machine learning. And if you know know what this is we're going to describe and explain what this is about in a moment and more specifically what is the role that can play in this specific domain to say mitigate problems that can arise in terms of bias and furnace in machine learning so to talk about this topic. We have not one but two guests. We have Alex Cabrera who is a PhD student from Carnegie Mellon University. I Alex is again. Thanks so much for having and then we have young. Soo on who is also Ph student at the University of Pittsburgh I- youngster. Welcome to the show. Hello Nice to talk to you so Alexander. Who can you briefly introduce yourself? Tell us a little bit about what is your background. What is your main research topic? And just give a brief introduction. Yeah so I'M ALEX. I'm a PhD. Student of the Human Computer interactions to at Carnegie Mellon so generally idea research into creating interactive systems and visualization. Systems that help people both develop better machine learning models so even more accurate more equitable and understanding these models so understanding potential issues. Or How? They work okay. Young Soo my name is sue on in I'm a dirtier peachy students at University of Pittsburgh. A my research interest lies at the intersection of visualization and fair. And explain away. I enter to machine learning so my primary research question is to build assistant to help users with making the machine learning results more fair and explainable in helped him to interact with machine so that their opinions and apex can be incorporated into the system. Okay thanks so much so I was thinking. Maybe we should start with defining a little bit this terminology to the extent that he's possible but maybe they're probably many of our listeners who've never heard of that and of fairness and bias and this is a very overloaded terminology here so I'm wondering if we can start by defining a little bit. What what we mean by fairness and maybe even bias in emission learning and also what? What kind of province exists there yet? So I'll probably I can start by talking about a little bit of background on why the problem This fairness problem has been actively discussed in especially missionaries research. So as a May have seen did. Data driven decision is kind of increasingly used in important decisions so especially Such as a job recording of colleagues dimension were predicted policy. Those kind of important decision which have kind of huge impact on Individuals muster learning as more and more used induced kind of important decisions then Some of cases have been reported that these machine turned out to be biased towards certain groups or certain individuals so here the what I mean by bias is certain. Decisions are kind of burrow favored to certain groups or individuals. Such as man over woman or a white people over african-american people. This is because on the machine. Learning model is trained from Historic Co. Data set and this historical data said could possibly include Inherited bias then. The model is kind trained by those data sets and then have kind of inherited vice. The problem of machine learning here is that whatever trained model can kind of systematically discriminate against certain individuals groups especially in Western Assistant Because many decision makers may use to system in their decision making then kind of making these mistresses. More Fair is kind of important problem so basically the type of fairness you talk about is mostly related to not being discriminatory or not using features. That have nothing to do with the essential decision. You're making more superficial like Maybe the race or gender or other features of a person right. So it's about combating discrimination. Yeah I think that's the main idea. It's actually you get to you a more complicated because even if you don't include some of these protected features so if you say you're trying to give someone alone you don't really want to decide that based off of their gender their race Those are actually. You can be almost perfectly predicted by the other features so you can actually reconstruct that so actually a lot of machine. Learning people suggest you actually add those features in because they're going to be used anyway and then you can apply some resolutions afterwards to try to address the problem. So it's very much embedded in the data that you're using to train the model this historical data that you've collected so it's not just as easy as leaving out that column with Race Agenda and not saying you talk to the research that's happening now. It's a little bit more complicated. Just the complex relationships between the variables ends up that you can actually recreate the biopsies. Even having no idea algorithm not being aware of these protected attributes. Okay but just on the Senate so the evaluation you do and fair. Evaluation is one that only takes the features into account that you're supposed to take into account so usually the way we did try to define fairness or quantify is an output. So if you're trying to give loans or a very popular example is trying to decide algorithms to decide how risk how likely someone is to recommit a crime if they're like. Oh so whether or not you should give someone bail we usually it doesn't we don't really look at what features are used that we look at. What the output is and so if for example the RECIDIVISM prediction case for African American males? You're more likely to be given a higher risk or even though you're just as likely to recommit a crime that is discrimination. That is the bias that we're trying to discover and trying to combat right So we really like black box models. It's really hard to know. What parts of the data are being used to make the decision? But we really care about whether these decisions were making. The outputs are making that really society impactful whether those are equitable and fair. Okay Yeah I'm wondering if we can can you? Maybe describe one or two specific examples. Where these kind of problems can arise. I think what is interesting? Is that right now? I mean we live in a society where where these these systems stems are already making decisions or some of some decisions for us right or providing indications for for experts that have to make decisions based on on what the AI system suggests recommends right. So I think I'm wondering if we in order to make a little bit more concrete if you can cite one one or two examples where where these these. This kind of problem can rice yes. Sadly there are quite quite a few examples. So one of the biggest one of the first investigations elected to it was in facial recognition systems so there are systems by like Had some face plus plus IBM and Microsoft that they audit and it tries to tell given a picture of someone's face whether they're male or female and when they started looking into it they found that when you start seeing how well they perform for say white men versus darker skinned women. There was almost ninety nine percent accuracy for the white males and close to seventy percent accuracy. For the darker skin females which is pretty big disparity. A lot of that is due. Hey if you look up. General data sets of faces a lot of the faces. That come up are white males that data that you're learning on is not

Crossing Borders: North Korean Food
"North Korea must be better known for its brutal regime than its feasts. Birth South Korea becoming more familiar with cuisine from northern neighbour. Thanks to escapees who brought their recipes with them across the border and that has inspired at least two one shift from Seoul to breach the peninsula's culinary divide more Nichols Jason Star the reports. The Restaurant Jinshan is located down a short flight of steps in what is known as a half basement. It's the kind of partially subterranean layer. That's meant to be a bomb shelter in case North Korea attacks. So maybe it's fitting that cuisine from above the border is what's on the menu here. Chinchillas head chef legion.

What kind of dishes would you use this in here at the restaurant reuse this spring on your for the Congress for one meal which is which is a signature dish? Which is come from This korea bottles of North Korean. Soy Sauce and Ginseng. Alcohol are on display in the restaurant and on a small table are four. North Korean cookbooks.

I don't even know what it is and I never soon someplace who sells North Korean food. Every South Korean is familiar with at least one North Korean Dish Nang me on noodle served in an icy broths.

Who have defected to the south most within the past decade We budget most Korean lady a Refugee Yup. And she's sure how to do it when you started learning about North Korean cuisine. What surprised you about it. I actually surprised because insults growing food. We don't really make spring onion oil. Which is a day. Saute the Spring on an oil or really low hit to make it like oil flavor a spring spring onion flavor oil in South Korean food. We we would never do it in that way. And in South Korea they use a lot of chilis in every dishes is very spicy in South Korea. You can easily find food which is red. But it's quite hard to find red food in.

"But the silver paintbrush was still there eager to test. It doubt Liang raced home and swept the brush through the air as if she were painting a peacock and there before her very eyes how was an actual peacock a glossy green bird with a magnificent read gold and blue tail. The bird flaps its wings then soared through the kitchen window and up into the sky that was amazing but wait wait. Liang hadn't eaten all day and her stomach was growling. If anything I paint will become real. I think it's time time for a dinner break as usual. Liang's cupboards were bare. So can you guess what she did. She twirled the pink crash over the table as as if she were painting. A bowl of noodle soup sure enough. A real bowl of soup appeared with fragrant Raker wisps of steam curling off the top. This is unbelievable but I have to remember what the old woman said. The brushes powers must be used carefully and wisely and for good only for good. Liang's sipped her soup and drums. Her fingers on the table. Suddenly her eyes lit up. I know the emperor's taxes have been so hard on this village. I'll take the paintbrush to the marketplace and helped my neighbors anything they need. I'll painted for them if that isn't using the brushes powers for good. So the next morning Liang strolled through the crowd at the marketplace offering to paint for anyone who was down on their luck she found a poor farmer who lost his one and only workhorse here. You go friend. I've painted you a strong black steed. Plus US harness and plow. She met a little boy who had torn his one and only code. How warm new jacket KITTO? Plus a colorful scarf and she came across An -sition who was so hungry. He had sold all his instruments for food. How about if I paint you a brand new flute sir? Plus a drum bamboo drumsticks word of Liang's enchanted paint brush spread and over the weeks that followed. She used the brush to paint for anyone in the village who was struggling but it wasn't long before before the news reached the ears of someone who definitely was not struggling. The emperor remember him the one who always wanted more more more. My my Josh. Thank of the things I could paint with silver paint brush. I could take over the entire world. I'm mushed havoc for myself. Then he called for his guards and sent them to gangs village with orders to bring back the young woman and her enchanted. Silver.

"He just wanted more time to stay up before bed in a moment. We'll meet a greedy man who always wants more more more until in the end he gets way more than he bargained for I'm Rebecca share and welcome to circle round where storytime happens all the time. Today they are story is called an enchanted rush versions of this tale. Come from China. mm-hmm some really great people came together to bring you our adaptation of this tale including Philip Sue and Stacy Keach Philip assu starred in the original Broadway Broadway production of Hamilton and earned a Tony Award nomination. Stacy Keach a veteran of the stage and screen stars in the CBS comedy man with a plan as well L. AS CNBC's of American greed so circle around everyone for the enchanted paintbrush Once upon a time there was a powerful emperor the mighty eighty ruler war the most luxurious clothing eight the most sumptuous food and lived a grand palace with so many rooms floors isn't always his hundreds of guards and servants often got lost so given everything the emperor had you think he was content. Went right satisfied. Nope you see. The emperor was greedy. Very greedy. In fact can you guess what his favorite word was more. I want more more more more. The Emperor Burger was always brainstorming ways to get more riches and more how one day as he lounged on his towering gold thrown in crested Christie with jade and pearls. He had an idea. I know to bring even more money to my coffers. I'll raise taxes Christians. One hundred per cent from here on out taxes will be doubled for every single person in the land. No matter how rich or how poor that meant that every farmer every Fisher every single person in all the land had to give more of their earnings to the whether they could afford to or not so as you can imagine it was a hard time for many people including a young woman named Leeann. Leeann lived on her own in a small village by the sea to support herself each morning morning. She walked along the beach and collected pieces of wood. That had drifted ashore then. She hold the wood to the marketplace to sell firewood Get your firewood here. Liang made just enough money to keep a roof over her head and food in her belly. Of course that roof if was patched together and often leaked and that food was usually nothing more than a small bowl of rice but laying wise content satisfied. Mostly you see for as long as lean could remember. She dreamed of being a painter but she couldn't scrape together the funds to buy a paintbrush of her own so every day while she was on the beach collecting would she would hunt for the straightest skinniest stick she could find and drop it in her knapsack then after work she'd run back to the shore and use her stick to draw pictures in the San Liam Andrew everything animals flowers landscapes and the more she drew the more real. Her pictures began to look at the more seem. Her fellow villagers began to notice. My goodness Liang. It's like that butterfly of yours. Could leap right off the sand and flutter into the air and that dog I su- yeah well. He's about to open his mouth and bark cascading waterfall. Can't you just hear The war and feel the spray. You thank you thank you everyone thank you. One Night Liang stayed up especially late drawing her pictures in the sand the moon was full and it's shimmering glow lit up the empty beach suddenly Liyang heard a voice. Why if I I didn't know better? I'd say that when the sun comes up that rooster you're drawing will start crowing its head off off. Leeann dropped her stick and looked up standing before her was an old woman with flowing. White Hair thank you for the kind words. Ma'am I love making art more than anything else in the world. It makes me feel so wonderful so alive. You know if if I could I'd spend the whole day painting but alas I can't even afford real paintbrush is that so just a cloud passed over the moon and everything went dark when the moon shone light again Liang saw. Aw Her straight skinny stick had vanished in its place was a sparkling silver paint. Brush this Liyang. Gang is an enchanted paintbrush. Anything you paint with it will become real just like that it but he mind words. The brushes power is must be used carefully and wisely doc and own lethal good than another cloud drifted across the moon and the sky went black. The moon reappeared. The old one was gone.
