This is why we're giving forward guidance. This is why we're giving up on forward guidance. It just depends on the data. We can't come up with a theory in advance. But then what is all of the discussion? Then why are so many fed officials coming out and trying to give us guidance? Yeah, because they're trying to give everyone a sense of how they're thinking about things so that as there are developments, there won't be big surprises on how they'll respond to them. But the data is all over the place. So Megan's four people to come up with it. Their job now. Is to establish clearly what their reaction function is. That's what we need to better understand and go off. If unemployment is going to start climbing at yearend and inflation is still a 6. What do they do? How high is the hurdle for a pause?

"If you want to take out a loan in this economy, you might possibly have to do a little work, put a little time to upgrade your credit score or credit scores, really, because most of us have at least a couple of them. And they can be critical to our financial fortunes. So what are you supposed to do if your credit scores need a little polishing? Should you pay off all debts or somehow get your credit limit raised or maybe spread your debts around? Maybe. It's your call, but really what you would actually be doing by doing that is that you'd be gaming the algorithms behind those credit scores. Marketplace is Kimberly Adams, explains what that might look like in real life. Credit scores can be a bit mystifying. They go up, they go down, sometimes without a clear reason. For amber Miller, a certified financial planner in Minneapolis, that mystery was a challenge. I caught up with Miller and her husband during their beach vacation, with their 11 month old baby. She keeps tabs on her credit scores, mainly just out of curiosity. At this point, it's, oh my gosh, if it's under 800, if someone went, what is going on? Because now I feel like I've tried to figure out the system worked the system to get it to be perfect. Miller had a general idea of what yields a good credit score, and yet she and her husband noticed their scores kept dropping. We always paid our credit cards off in full every single month by the due date or before. And I didn't understand why then the score would ever go down. So Miller tried an experiment. She changed how often she paid her credit card bills. So the most frequently I ever paid off the credit cards was weekly, it did absolutely jump our credit. I mean like every week it would go up ten points for each of us. Still, this is all guesswork. Credit scoring companies give broad outlines to their calculations. A certain percentage attributed to credit history, a chunk to the types of credit you have. David silberman is a senior fellow at the center for responsible lending. But precisely what credit history means and how it scored or what types of credit means and how it scored. That's all black box. Nevertheless, there's a whole industry promising easy fixes to improve credit scores. But credit scoring companies, they know all the tricks, and regularly update their models. Ethan Doran helm is a vice president in FICO scores and predictive analytics department. A practice that became pretty popular, a little over a decade ago was this notion of authorized user piggybacking, where people would basically rent out their sparkling credit card account. And for a fee, they would add people as an authorized user on their account. Thus boosting that second person's credit score. FICO ran the numbers and found that being an authorized user on an account wasn't a great predictor of creditworthiness. So, in one of the company's newer versions, FICO tweaked that algorithm. But not all changes are so obvious, and that leaves a lot of people guessing, or listening to bad credit score advice, says the center for responsible lendings, David silberman. I think some folks who try may actually misunderstand what counts as good and what counts as bad since they may actually do things which have the exact opposite effect from what they're intending. And the consequences of getting it wrong can be severe. Safiya noble, a professor at UCLA, has written extensively about the role of algorithms in our lives. She gives the example of someone who has a bad credit score and no dental insurance. Let's say you need an emergency root canal. If you don't have dental care and you have to finance that, a visit to the dentist on some type of dental credit card or credit system. Many dentists and other specialists will offer a monthly payment plans,

"Surface also warning dust from Africa's Saharan desert will drape itself across Houston and east Texas turning skies a milky gray keeping temperatures high and making allergies worse Companies 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries I'm working up This is Bloomberg David Thank you so much rittich Well we had those CPI numbers this morning and certainly the markets were surprised by how hot they were And so now we turn to someone who really is responsible for explaining them to the president of the United States She's doctor safiya rausch She's chair of the president's council of economic advisers Doctor Ross thank you so much for being with us Let me start with the most basic question here The market certainly were surprised Were you surprised by how hot these numbers were Well look we understand that inflation is a global challenge right now as we knit our economy's back together after this pandemic and given the war Russia's war against Ukraine So we expected them to be elevated you know forecasting is really difficult At this time and what we could see is in the month on month increase in headline which was about 1% about 50% of that was due to food and energy And my understanding is really difficult to forecast price increases You know changes in prices and that's really what was challenging for forecasters But look the president understands that prices are a challenge which is why he's focused on it every day So doctor Russell as you say it's really hard to forecast I certainly wouldn't want to try to do that I would be no good at it whatsoever But as you look forward as you advise the president do you see any prospect of a significant cooling of inflation before November and I picked that date perhaps at random perhaps because they're midterms So what we understand is that again as we just pointed out especially month on month the headline inflation which includes fuel and food is our biggest challenge We understand that even core inflation was broad based and some of that is actually due to energy costs which bleed into many other factors And the fact that we are coming out of a global pandemic I do see I am optimistic that we will see some cooling inflation I am not going to forecast exactly what the numbers will be and how fast but we see supply chains getting better We see the throughput getting better We see consumption patterns renormalizing which will put some pressure on services but nonetheless we see a rebalancing which I think will be healthy for price stability as well Importantly the fed is also focused on inflation That's part of their dual mandate price stability full employment the president is giving them the space to do what they need to do And we can you know part of the market's reaction is they're expecting the fed to actually take that charge seriously which will also generate some cooling We all have to have faith in the fed after all because as you suggest the president has said it's really their responsibility At the same time the fed has been off and some feather fairly substantial ways I talked earlier today with somebody you know well a former colleague Larry summers of Harvard And he had some harsh words for the fed's projections so far This is part of what he had to say I think the fed's forecast from March saying that inflation would be coming down to the twos by the end of the year was frankly delusional when issued and looks even more ridiculous today So doctor Ross is that a fair characterization and perhaps beyond what happened in the past Does it raise questions about how confident we can be going forward that the fed has their arms around this problem Look I am not going to I'm going to respect the independence of the fed and not comment on their policy making I will say that they are focused on it and I do have confidence in the team It's great that the nominees have been confirmed We need Michael Barr to get through as well But we know that they are focused on it Importantly the president is doing what he can to compliment those efforts So for example he really encourages Congress to pass the bill that would address shipping costs because we know again shipping costs raise the process of bringing goods in particular overseas or across the country And it's important that we reduce those costs of shipping He encourages Congress to work with him to reduce the cost for families for prescription drugs for child care for energy costs And importantly deficit reduction is also deflationary and helps with inflation And the president urges Congress to work with him to raise taxes for the various wealthiest Americans for our biggest corporations because again that will help to ease pressures on prices as well Doctor Ross we've heard some talk about corporate profit making driving the inflation problem And yesterday we heard the treasury secretary Janet Yellen at a New York Times event actually addressed this question although she allowed us how there might be increased profits That was not fundamentally what was driving It was supply and demand Do you agree with that I do agree that what is generating the inflationary pressure right now is a mismatch between demand and supply Again this goes back to the pandemic when we had to power down the world economy but our government supported people so they could buy food pay rent continue supporting their lifestyles but our supply could not match that So that's why we see inflation around the world And even in the U they're seeing inflation at historic levels The war in Ukraine has only exacerbated those efforts So as supply and demand starts to normalize I am optimistic We will get back to price stability and get back to an economy that is building in a more sustainable steady way I'm curious about what target The White House has for inflation We know the fed's target is 2% Some people think that might be a little unrealistic at the moment at least Do you have a target for inflation So having an inflation for target is really in the domain of monetary policy and that is squarely in the domain of the Federal Reserve which is why it's so important that they be given the independence and the latitude to do what they need to do to address inflation which has not been the case with every administration There have been presidents that have wanted to get in the way of the fed for political reasons But this president understands that that is what the fed needs to do And he wants to be pursuing fiscal policies that are complimentary to that Everyone is very concerned with inflation The president has been very explicit I think he called it the bane of our existence earlier this week No question but are there some benefits actually from some inflation We talked with doctor Paul romer you know him He's the Nobel laureate in economics yesterday And he suggested that actually there may be some benefits This is part of what he had to say Yeah this is the hidden unnoticed true success of Biden's policy because we've got wages growing faster in dollar terms for the people at the bottom end of the skill distribution One of the benefits of this period of higher inflation is going to be that we can start to close some of the wage gap and help the people at the bottom catch up And doctor Roman came complete with the chart as you expect him to the broke out of the wage increases by quartile showing that the lowest quartile is going by far the fastest of the four different quartiles Is this part of White House policy So the president has always been very clear that his economic policy making is geared towards building this economy from the bottom up and middle out And so the fact that wages are growing for those who have not seen significant wage increases for the past several decades is part of his economic plan What's important is it going forward that those wage increases are built on a growing economy that they be sustainable that they be steady and so the president understands that that involves bringing down the cost for households but it also means getting inflation out of control But absolutely the president's whole economic policy making is designed to generate greater sustainable economic growth that is more widely shared So I wonder we've heard from you and from others at The White House we want sustainable stable growth What does that look like Do you have a definition for that Do you have a target there for what that would look like A way to GP growth or job growth whatever What.

"Now today marks the beginning of the India art fair returning to New Delhi for its 13th edition. The fair will showcase 77 exhibitors and allow visitors to discover and celebrate modern and contemporary art from across South Asia. Michael safiya, Sophie monaghan's caught up with Jaya ashokan, who is director of the India art fair, ahead of today's opening. She began by telling us about the history of the fair and it's important to the South Asian contemporary art scene. So the first edition of the fair actually took place in 2008, which is more than 15 years ago. And since then, I really believe we've continued to grow from strength to strength, championing the best modern and contemporary art from the subcontinent and South Asia for a global audience. We are actually the only fair that shows Indian art specifically within the region. And it's the only commercial fan the region and also one of the largest venues in India to buy worlds, finding in South Asian artists. Could you tell me a little more about the scope of the fair? There's so many galleries are involved in it's also taking place across different regions, I believe. That's right. So the fair take place in Delhi, as I mentioned, over an expansive 15,000 m² space. And it's very much rooted in its home base. So maximum or 70% of our floor space is always going to be dedicated to Indian and South Asian participants, which is our focus. And then we also have a select number of international galleries who've demonstrated long-term commitment to engaging with local audiences by bringing names that have not been shown before. We do get some blue chips as well that come to India now because they see the viability in the market and with the audience. So within India, we have galleries, of course, from all the metros and Delhi Mumbai Chennai and Kolkata, Bangalore and Pune as well. And from the subcontinent and the region we also have calories from Dhaka, Colombo, Kathmandu. So it's quite a cross section really of art and galleries from the region. And I guess it's particularly exciting time for this to happen as we're coming out of the pandemic. And how has the Indian and the wider South Asian art market fared in the past couple of years? You know, it's actually been quite strong to be honest. On the whole, the Indian market is picking up in general at a record rate, which is primarily been driven by consumers spending and a very strong domestic demand. And I think despite the challenging pandemic here, we are continuing to grow evolve and innovate. We've seen a lot of great initiatives in the last two years. We've seen galleries come together and build online platforms. Also have physical group shows together, which in the Indian context is something that has been new. So it's been really encouraging to see that. What we've also seen is really a growing passion and interest in collecting beyond the basis of Delhi and Mumbai. So with tier two tier three cities, and so we are now actually actively another scope of a long-term vision of the fair and the team is to do programming 360 five days of the year and what we're going to try and do is take us programming to some of these cities. You know, the smallest city to build a larger audience space. And just finally, we can obviously hear in the background the hustle and bustle as you get everything ready for the fair to start. Could you spotlight a couple of the program highlights that you're particularly excited about visitors coming to experience? Sure. So we're back after two years, which is exciting in itself. And the energy we've seen so far is really been incredible, you know, we expecting not just our returning patrons and audiences, but a whole new generation and base of artists are levels, young collectors. We will continue to champion trailblazing voices alongside established household names presented by 60 plus galleries and this edition. And an unprecedented 14 institution, which is the first at the fed. So beyond the exhibition halls, we have an amazing public program of talks, performance art, workshops, led by some of our artists and residents program. There is this focus on digital art and NFTs as well in a dedicated space called the studio. We have a lot of art publishing and book launches this year, which is also been exciting, as well as quite a few large scale outdoor projects. And that was Jaya Asher can. And that's all we have time for on today's program. Thanks to our producers Reece James, Sophie monaghan coombs and Emma searle are researchers today Lillian fawcett and Samson in bogo and our studio manager was Chris a Blackwell. So after the headlines, there's more music on the way and in the next few hours, we're going to hear some exciting retail news from Seoul will get the latest from the world of design and our editor our editorial director Tyler brulee will be interviewing the CEO of Gucci. The briefing is live at midday in London and later on today on monocle reads will be listening to an interview I had all about creating language and what words really mean. The globalists will return at the same time tomorrow. I'm Georgina Godwin. Thanks for listening..

Like, is that going to serve the greatest good for all creation more so than me just kind of doing my work in a Trojan horse capacity and like yeah, I'm kind of still in this system and I'm not trying to be deplatformed and have no ability to reach people. So is the net result of that me contributing more positivity and more awakening to more people. And am I able to do so in a bigger capacity having a smartphone than if I got myself a light phone and could only text and call people and have no access to apps or whatever, you know? I may not spend a lot of time laboring over this. I'm just keeping it moving. But I'm so staunch about some of my positions. And, you know, I've never put the thing up my nose. I'm never doing any of that. I'm just trying to go somewhere that requires that. I don't go there. You know, it's just I'm not doing that. It's clear. So there's like hard lines that are just metaphysically non negotiable for me. But then there's the gray area of this stuff I'm describing. It's kind of like, yeah, I'm still in the swamp a bit, you know? It's like kind of waiting it out until there's viable alternatives there that can still serve my needs. So yeah, I don't know. Yeah, I would say that what you just described a lot of us have had that inner dialog of like, well, this and that and balancing and rationalizing, that's the inner attorney, right? Because on some level, that's whatever put you on the spot, but you want to feel right about your choice, right? So you're making sense out of it. So now you can still feel okay about it. I don't think there is an objective like sovereign lifestyle, right? I don't think there's an objective way to exit the matrix and build this new earth. I think that it is an inside job. If you feel a disturbance, which I did. Actually, it was less about track and trace and being a part of the machinery of cyborg, you know, humanity, then it was actually about the addictive elements of my smartphone. And wait, where's my phone? Exactly. And when I would find myself, it was really like one day, my youngest daughter yelled at my other daughter. I used to use this app voxer or whatever. And she yelled at her because safiya, my eldest was trying to tell me something, and my youngest lucio was like, Sophia, she's boxing. Like, defend it. She was defending my time with my phone against my other daughter's attention. She was justifying your lack of presence. Yes. She's boxing, like, don't bother mama. She's addicted to her phone and we're here to support that..

"But so it's better to own a horse and a partnership where you could reduce your costs and you get the same funny, whether your own 25% or a whole horse. That's why I think some of the groups and syndicates are a good idea for reasons to get smaller people because most people can't afford to own a horse three, $4000 a month. It's a lot of money. But if you own say 10% or 5% of that horse and you spend $200 or a 100,000 that's affordable for some of them for the average person and then you get the same trill in the same fund. No question. Is it three to $4000 a month if you have a horse in training at the track? I'll say about roughly like 3000. It varies from training to training trainers at 85 to a 105 on a day rate and that builds and that's what makes it so hard to make money because if you're spending $36,000 a year in training, you've got to make that up in purse money and sometimes especially with the cheaper horses you really have a hard time doing that. Oh, for sure. Even if you buy a tour, if you buy it, you also have 50, 60,000. It's going to take you four to 5 months to get to the races. By the time you get to the races, you end for like a 100,000. Then you run the horse and he can't even run for 25. Yeah. And then the worst thing is sometimes you get owners and the worst things to be unrealistic in this game. If you're on the realistic, you're going to end up costing you more, you know? Tell me about a horse that's surprised you, savvy. That maybe you didn't think he was going to be quite as good as he turned out to be. Well, probably, are you talking to me? My dad picked him out. I never really thought he would be like, I never really liked him. As a horse, I never he's not the best looking horse. You don't look at him, you don't see like quality. He doesn't look like anything to make you say, well, wow. And that's only after a couple of times around I first have a couple of starts and they realize, wow, this is a good horse. And then each time he went on, he gave me so much more confidence. He won the Triple Crown. And I think he was only peaking really up four years old. Before the injury, like the last before he got hurt, I had the free accent. The last two races he won. At that time, when I took him over to the pilot, I didn't think he could be. He had become so he gave me that feeling that whenever I took him over, there was no way he thought he would get beat. Then I accidentally happened, what did your dad see in him when he picked him out? What attracted your dad to the horse? That's anyone I gave him credit for. And he would have been nothing until you trained him, right? Well, not till I trained him. We kept doing good, but he would have been given to anybody. They're good. They're going to be good about anybody. I think the key to the train is keeping them keeping them going for a while. They have or you can't make a horse good. They're either good or good. I mean, either good or not good. But the key to a good trend is keeping them sung and keeping them going for a while. Keeping them at a high level. You mentioned the freak accident. What happened that day and how difficult was it on you? Well, he was, he was just jogging. And that's where we always train them at a time when the shot was quiet because he would get on his get really keen. And he was just jogging on the back side and two horses were breathing. There were only three horses in the whole track, and I don't know what happened because they happened on the backside different stories, but apparently they ran into the back of him, whether he jinxed in front of them or the horse that ran into the back end and broke his neck instantly. Then he got loose after that. And he ran around it like three quarter track and where it was. He ran there on there like three or four times, I think. Normally, you try to go in front of horse and flag it down, and they'll notice you and slow down. Are we trying to do that like two or three times? And he just kept going and going until finally he was bleeding from his nostrils and he stopped. And then he had like, after they had like 14 months off, he came back and he won. Wow, that had to be something. That was special. To see him come back after that injury and to come back and render shows you how truly a good horse he was. Yeah, I can imagine it was a pretty emotional day for you and the family too. Yeah, it was very much on his first start by an amazing. Did you believe he would get back to the races? After that, you never believe it because we just kind of retired and basically, but just kept him on the farm and then after like a year, like 6, 8, ten months, we started swimming and we just played it by Aaron until it really happened. Is he still around? Yeah, he lives at our House. He's in school. He's like a living statue. He's going to live his life. He's ready to retire. Until he's ready to battle.

"Of the team, there's been a lot of people that have helped me by my relationship with Fox Sports north and you know, just being an analyst in this league is such a brotherhood. You know, there's so many great analysts in this league and it's just so fun to be a part of it and I feel really blessed Ryan. And I really appreciate you having me on your show. You know, I've admired your work for a long time. You've hit me up a few times on asking you to be a part of your show, so I'm really grateful to be here. All right, hey, enjoy the rest of the season. And hopefully we're talking playoffs, all right? I love it. Let's do it. You want details? Bye. I drive a Ferrari. Three 55 cabriolet. What's up? I have a ridiculous house in the south fork. I have every toy you can possibly imagine. And best of all kids, I am liquid. So now you know what's possible. Let me tell you what's required. Life advice, life advice RR at Gmail dot com. This one is serious. This is serious. I love this one. So we're just going to get to it. I don't want to waste any time. All right, everybody ready? Yeah. Kyle safiya tone love today. What kind of filter we got? I had the email up. So what are you talking to me, Kyle? What do you kind of dusky right now? What's going on with this? Watching 1883, I'm into it, so here we are. All right. All right. Some of the some of the women out there on Instagram posted some of these filters. You're like, you know what you're just making your skin look super old, right? This doesn't look good. Hey, old skin. All right, here we go. All right, back to the email because this is serious. This is serious. All right, here we go. 6 two two 40. Recently taken across fit. So my most recent benchmark is a two 85 cleaner. Avid basketball fan frequently played pickup. This is relevant to my situation, as you'll see in a minute. Okay, all right. Squat 40, bench three 50. All right, we're doing a serious guy here. Okay, he said he's changing some details so that we can read it through. Thank you for doing that. On a bridge, you're right, right, here we go. For some background, I'm a married guy, mid 30s, no kids. I have one sister who's about 8 years younger than me. My wife and I live in Illinois in my sister and mother live on the east coast. About three years ago, my sister, let's start calling her Charlotte, started dating this guy, Andrew. I assume he changed these, right? Yeah, if he said he did, then he did. And if not. All right. I know. I've just double checking. Sometimes I'll change the change thing, and I didn't hear because it's just it comes up too often. All right, so his sister Charlotte started dating this guy Andrew and they are now engaged. He seems nice enough and is a reasonably successful guy who works in insurance Dallas and real estate as well. He's 5 years younger than me. What do we good school? And I was surprised to learn, he played D one hoops. I won't say the school, but it's a notable program of some lower seated NCAA tournaments in the last ten years. Nice. Okay. Like any of the sports nerd, I went and looked it up, see what I could find of his stats and he was pretty decent. Played decent minutes. Though he was not a consistent starter. Being they live in the east coast, so we're here in the Midwest, my wife and I obviously haven't spent a time with them, especially with the pandemic. We decided this year to have them out for the holidays and they stayed at our place for 5 nights over Christmas while I was excited to talk sports with my sister's fiance. Can you imagine how fired up the email address that this guy, right? So while I was excited to talk sports with my sisters, fiance, the situation got weird quickly. God, I love this fucking email so much. One night at dinner, I was asking Andrew about playing college ball and he was a bit evasive about answering basic questions. I had a million curiosities about travel for college athletes bouncing school and play. Wanting to know all about playing the big dance. I'm going to lose it. Sorry. Like any normal sports fan has played a little bit. I played some, oh no, our guy played high school in some juco. So look, if you're playing junior college basketball, like you're still ahead of like 98, 99% of everybody at some fucking pickup game, all right? So like you, the email are here. Like, you know, you probably pretty good. You played a little. All right, I was excited to talk to an actual athlete or former athlete. At the time, I thought he'd probably get these questions for people all the time when they find out where he went to school that he played basketball. My wife agreed with me that evening when we spoke about it, that I might have just come across as a little overzealous. When in my mind, I was just generally curious about the guy. Fast forward a couple days. I get up in the morning and go to the gym to meet up with a friend of mine and play some pickup. There's usually a good sized group of guys. I can't read this email. I mean, I'm just trying to guess where this is possibly going. Oh, because I knew when I read it the first time, I knew exactly where it was going. And I just love it so much. Because it happened to me too, by the way. All right, so here we go. Fast forward a couple of days, I get up in the morning. It's usually a good sized group of guys over there holiday week, so we figured it was a good time to go. I casually ask Andrew if he wants to tag along and play some pickup. He objected it first saying he didn't have his gear with him. But seeing as he wears basketball shoes daily anyway, I offered him some of my spare clothes to play and assured him these games are going to.

"Mean, I think that, you know, he's deserves to be on the list, which Dale hates, but you know he's he's a guy that, you know, a lot of people really don't know that much about. He's only been riding here in the U.S. on a regular basis since 15. And, you know, he's he's he's become a go to writer and out west. He's got a bunch of writing titles that delmar, but he's not in the household name if you will. Category like maybe Joelle and my old friend, I read, and Jose Ortiz, Louis Sia's, but, you know, yeah, I think that if you're going to have to have these polls, which Dale hates, I guess they did get it right. All right, final topic for today. Again, you can listen to I asked, they answer every single weekend here, ten 30 eastern is when we kick it off on the equine forum. If you miss them, head back to our website and check out the podcast of each of these segments. They have been really informative. All right, final segment and it involves Gulfstream's championship meet, which begins on Friday. Trainer safi Joseph junior comes into the meat with a ton of momentum having just captured the fall meat title and the spring summer meat title before that. Safi finished 8 wins behind Hall of Famer Todd pletcher at last year's championship meet, of course, pletcher recorded his 18th title for the championship meet last year. He's been unstoppable. Joseph was quoted in an article this week, guys, is saying the championship meet is Todd's meat. Last year we were pretty close, but we didn't have as many horses as we have this year. I think we can give him a run for his money. What are the chances safi Joseph junior walks away with the championship meat training title this year? He's got a solid chance he wins a lot of races, but I will say one thing, Todd pledge to walk away with the money title. So it'll be about show me the money. I don't think he was concerned about the number of wins anymore. So he just went in the big ones and he went all the big ones down there. He's powerhouse getting stronger all the time. Yeah, I mean, Todd is he's mister Gulfstream, just like he's mister Saratoga with, you know, he wins all those meat titles. It was almost shocking to some people a couple years ago when she had Brown started is running back Tod off. Can saffy Joseph do it? Yeah, why not? I mean, he had he actually started more horses than Todd during last year's winter meat. But, you know, it's also like I don't want to say like in this to the JVs trying to take on the varsity. And I'm not saying that safiya's a JV trainer, but the analogy is that he's got to step it up a little bit and he's got more horses, but Todd's got a bunch of horses and Todd's quality is usually always been more than SAP. But, you know, safiya's a good horseman and he's going to get his shera wins. Does he have enough in his barn to knock off Todd? I don't know about that. But if I was going to do a poll on this, I think I put Todd on top. What about you, Dale? Yeah, I'll put him on top anyway, but he's way on top of me. Sophie could win the title for winning the most races, but Todd went to title for winning the races. You know, that's an interesting point because so often there's press releases that are sent out after every meat at racetracks and they say, oh, so and so was the leading trainer. So and so was the leading owner. So it was the leading jockey. What do trainers covet more? Is it that leading trainer title by number of wins or would they much rather finish second or third in the standings and walk away with more money? Well, I'd speak for myself. I think earlier in my career training titles were very important. They got less and less important. And I'm sure same with Todd and more important about trying to win the right races and develop the right horses and you start thinking about your legacy a little more. And I think that more be remembered more for big races in multiple races. But isn't it more important though to also put money in your pocket too? That's the big races. Show me the money. Well, we'll see how it plays out again. That championship meet kicking off on Friday at pletcher safi Joseph, both going to be loaded and coming down there with the best horses. As will Dale Romans Dale looking forward to your horses strutting their stuff at Gulfstream, my friend. Yeah, we're gonna have a good winner. Think about a great fall and some good two year olds coming on to be three when I'm just gonna be a fun winter. All right, we'll see if gael Romans can dethrone Todd Fletcher. What do you think? I don't think so, not a number of ways. So I just wanted to be beaten his first time he ever won a race where he beat me. I seem to beat me from the very beginning. His first race I ran second. Maybe this will be the winter of Romans. Who knows? I like that. The winter of Romans. Well, Dan, we'll talk to you next week. Timmy will talk to you next week. Appreciate the time guys. I ask the answer, we'll do it all over again. Ten 30 Eastern Time next Saturday, fun stuff..

"We talk a lot on this show about the unintended consequences of using technology. And who's harmed by that technology? Another person who thinks about this a lot is safiya noble. She's an associate Professor of gender studies and African American studies at UCLA. She's also the author of the book algorithms of oppression, how search engines reinforce racism and a 2021 Macarthur fellow. Well, I started my work really looking closely at very banal everyday kinds of technologies like search engines, because I noticed that everyone was starting to use search engines as a replacement for other kinds of information resources like libraries or teachers or professors or parents. And so I thought, well, let me look closely and see what is Google doing when it comes to how it represents. Ideas about vulnerable people, and that's where I found before for many years when you did Google searches on black girls, Latina girls, Asian girls, you found pornography, hypersexualized content, really misrepresentative ideas about who girls of color were. And of course, over the years, that's really become a place where disinformation about everything from political candidates to anti vax, anti science, propaganda, circulates. You talk about restoration and repair, what would that mean for tech companies? I think that they have extracted so much from our public and they've threatened democracies around the world that they owe the public restoration. There could be cleanup funds the way Exxon or other pipeline companies have to pay for cleanup. I think we should be thinking about those kinds of models here in the tech sector too. Do you have a vision of how that might work and who might receive the money? Public awareness campaigns and education campaigns that the public needs, but also legal fees for people who are trying to go through the courts, just trying to get terrible information about themselves off the Internet. It could certainly help us fund things like new laws, one of the most important places is around voter enfranchisement because the Internet has really been used so powerfully in weaponized to disenfranchise poor people and black and Latino voters, digital Amnesty is the kind of legislation that I'd like to see where everything you've ever done on the Internet up to, I don't know, age 30, maybe the time when your brain is fully developed. Can be wiped off the Internet and it doesn't have to follow you much like we think about juvenile court records being sealed. Those are just a handful of ideas about where funds could go to help restore communities and people. And democracy. And will the Macarthur ward accelerate any of the projects you're working on? Well, the Macarthur award is just an unexpected embarrassment of riches that I am so grateful for and what I think gets done is it's really helped me it will help my family and I hope that it will help me kind of outside of the university, stand up, a nonprofit called the equity engine that will really help other women of color who, like me, I think see some harmful things and want to get involved and want to or already having impact, but don't have a lot of support. And I remember the early years of my career where I was not supported by big foundations and I didn't get a lot of attention around my work and it felt like kind of pushing a boulder up a mountain. I mean, a lot of the things that I talk about now are very mainstream. People don't even know that I was part of the early group of people who were talking about it. But I hope the equity in general will support other women of color and black women to do our work and I hope that it will attract resources from people who are interested in supporting women of color in our work. Safiya noble wrote the book algorithms of oppression, and she's a 2021 Macarthur fellow. And now for some related links, safiya used to work in advertising. She came on the show in 2018 and talked to mollywood about that. We'll share a link to that episode. And to some descriptions of her work, including a video where she stresses that we should start thinking about the companies that make search engines like Google for what they are, ad companies, and that we should scrutinize them, and not just fall into the habit of thinking, well, this is a trusted public good. Safiya has been doing this work for a long time. She went on an ACLU podcast to talk about it and said, you know, at least now, a lot more people understand algorithmic bias. Ten years ago, professors with PhDs would tell her computer code can't discriminate. It's just math. And math can't be racist or sexist, but one example after another has shown the opposite. In her book, she says that at one point, if you searched for the phrase professional hairstyles for work on Google, you'd get almost only pictures of white women. And if you searched for unprofessional hairstyles, you'd get pictures of black women with natural hair. And we've been talking mainly about search engines, but biased algorithms are everywhere. A couple years ago, Amazon scrapped a recruiting tool that was screening out female job candidates basically downvoting any resumes that included the word women's. Another example, researchers found that an algorithm used by many healthcare systems to decide when a patient should get more complex medical attention was biased against black patients. In a federal study found that facial recognition software is much more likely to misidentify people of color and women, which can result in false arrests, or lengthy interrogations of the wrong person. What's going to force change? Sometimes it's public backlash, and in the future, it could be actions by the federal government. Earlier this year, the FTC said there are laws it can use to hold companies accountable for racist or biased algorithms. Like the fair credit reporting act, if an algorithm is used to deny someone a job, housing or credit. The FTC also said that jargon about algorithms can make AI seem, quote, magical. But really it's not, and there's plenty that companies can do to watch out for bias, like starting with a solid and representative dataset and testing their algorithms to see if they discriminate. You know what else plays a role? The people who design the algorithms. Studies have shown that if you have a more diverse group of engineers, that can lead to a less biased product.

Balance sophia is all out on the outside and second and then super sensational and search results. And there's the move by beloussova to take over the lead in deep stretch a sixteenth to finish it is bella sophia with super sensational giving chase second bala sof ahah what a top notch effort. Don't win the grade. One long jeans tasks super sensational was second search results. Third and the seven furlongs one minute. Twenty one and two fifth seconds. You know watching the race live and certainly with everything. That's gone with bob. Backer like when when illumination may lead. I think me and a lot of people were like. Oh goodness he's gonna win this. It's gonna be really awkward here in the winter circle. i don't know. I don't think he was there track. Maybe was but sometimes has that feel with with racing. Just like here comes kind of happened with medina spirited the derby i remember thinking they got to lead. This is going to happen. Isn't it and then sure enough. It did but didn't happen Blowtorch era elimination. Rather couldn't sustain the the early pace and bella safiya stocked and pounced and really really looked impressive. There was a second there where she went by illumination and watching it live. I just thought man that was an insane kick and then i watched the replay. It was a good move. It was a great turn of foot. I mean this is a lightly raced philly. This was only her fourth start and you know she's been she's two or three or four now and has obviously a major grade one win under her belt now but when i watched it she kinda drifted in. And when you're watching races at saratoga anytime a horse kinda comes in. It's amazing like how much it looks like. The horse's like really gaining ground or really pulling away but it just kind of optical illusion of them you know going toward the inside i. It's it's a weird thing and that's not to say again that she she wasn't extremely impressive and wasn't kicking away because she was. I think it just i think like the powerhouse of the move was accentuated by that drifting down in because like i said that i've seen it one hundred times now with horses where it looks like. They're gaining especially in that low angle and they're just they're gaining but it's not as magnified i guess is it looks. Hope you guys understand what. I'm talking about him. I need to become a better communicator. At this kind of stuff but Great one win for rudy rodriguez. I think he's got a couple right. Oh yeah he's got plenty of one the card or twice belle dame spin. I was thinking maybe that was one of his first once. It's like fifth spin away with condo commando bell galanti in the belle dame. Dad's caps in the carter twice Bell galanti the delaware handicap. So he's got like six or seven. Oh man it's been but it's been a while for years since his last graded stakes win. That's a little surprising for rudy rod. But gets the win here and Actually his barn as a whole his is far as earnings and stuff is slugged. Him he there was a few years there. Twenty sixteen through twenty eighteen where it was like. You know he's one hundred fifty a year and you know nineteen twenty percents h. He's still sixty or seventy percents. They slow down a little bit but not Not too much but a big win here. Obviously for him louis sayas and the entire team super sensational who. I kinda liked it. A price Ran a big one. I thought Just couldn't catch a really talented horse and search results. I mean you can make case for being a little bit wide and stuff but I don't know i don't know the is the is the sprinting. Not the thing like does she want a little bit longer. I guess that's what people can. Debate in the glen falls stakes. It was worn. I got us a heavy favourite there for bill martin julian peru rallying from well off the pace from lasted fact to a you know pretty much blow by the competition and get the score in the glens falls at a very short price but pulled away it was a it was a drubbing. Big performance from warlike got us the lure stakes Flavius another favourite. There's something interesting happened. Value proposition they said had no left front. Shoes lost a shoe somewhere and they elected to have the horse run for purse money only and still run the race and ended up. Running thirds picks up fourteen thousand dollars. But at the time i believe was either co-favourite or just slightly second choice and so it kind of made it into flavius becoming a much much your favorite and of course if you had that horse in any kind of Longer sequence actually was there any pitfalls run into that race. I don't think there was there was a consolation. Pick three but no. I don't think there was a middle pick for five where you got the favorite but regardless you know if if that was the case you ended up with a Maybe because there was a middle pick five ended in race ten so but anyways Yeah so that was. That was kind of a goofy situation there. But flavius very impressive for chad and flying pratt scoring nicely. So the big races at steve aspen. One was stellar tap and again. We'll talk more about that on tomorrow's show but I i mentioned this. With johnny dooley because i interviewed john on sunday. Even though it's air wednesday. I felt like what got lost in the record. Breaker was that the source ran a monster race. Holy moly stellar tap. Looks good and so to be real interesting to see like i said i. It almost felt like and kind of deservedly. So right like it's a pretty monumental thing becoming the leading all time trainer here in our continent. I think ever i saw everybody kept saying north america. It was it the us. It was north america and so You know. I have some thoughts on that. Want to talk about steve's career and horses and all that On tomorrow show. Let's head over to del mar. Where the saturday feature the yellow ribbon stakes featured guest with the The best pow but the l. ribbon to me very very interesting race for the older fillies and mares that group is you know i i don't think by any means like super elite in that division just because i think so many times that division has gone through chad brown and you know primarily on the east coast. Chad runs at del. Mar a fair bit. So maybe i. I'm wrong in saying that it gives it just seems like in recent years. You know we we look for the older philly and mirror turf group to come through chat. But that's there's been good ones in southern california certainly charmaine's me a one of those. She was in this race. Dog tag. you know the folks at l. j. of had some very good tur- forces obviously united when it comes to mind male but You know it's if anything it's a group who has been around. I mean keep her. The stars bodey sita I've kind of been dancing. A lot of these dances over. The last couple of years lowers lights have been around for a little while she was fourteen to one in the spot. Princess grace kind of one of the newer shooters got some support. Bet down to a three to one or seventy two rather second choice in the race. Let's take a listen back to the great trevor. Edmunds call of the yellow ribbon. Feel to the yellow ribbons sent way along the inside. Ram windows secret was out well brokers going up alongside of the leader.

"And you can't really say enough good things about her. Looked like going into the last weekend. Her moffat their division. Last two weekends. I should say i don't know i'm all about beat now. Maybe that's philly can step up. She's working nicely Up at the spa appear at saratoga for this race Always community of jab around. She might appreciate the cutback from lounge sixteen to two seven along obligatory. Pick them up with the eight bells. Super sensational was really good with a clean trip. Finally last time in the victory ride a lot of ways to go here. I went to the of the speed. The number eight bill associate okay. So you mentioned this as a spread race. Let's dive a little bit into it. More and where does always carina sit in the pace a scenario of this race. She's gotten to the lead all three of her starts. And she's in between both illumination and bellsa who were drawn inside and outside respectively. So if you're flavian pratt. Writing always carina. What are you trying to do early on in this race. You're trying to find position. You gotta figure out. If illumination goes from the rental vehicles from the outside jobs a little easy right. Just gotta try and find your spot. Think after last time super sensational is going to look for an outside flow trip. I don't know what they're gonna do with jail. That was a weird race last time. Gel just kind of hung around there. Yeah actually kinda trip. She worked obligatory normally have to worry about. Be out the back. So i think it's going to be able to have his choice of wearing wants to put all these carina. She's dangerous because you know there's some blue sky as well. I think the cutbacks really going to help her. I just wonder with her. A little close to the pace. If maybe bella sofi can get away and run some of these sources off their feet okay. So we're going to go opposite ends of of how we think this is going to go. You're going to try to get bella safiya to break just go and never looked back. I'm thinking that they could hit up front. And maybe number four obligatory is the one who benefits the most. She comes from well out of it. She needs some pace help. She's proven that when she gets the pace help. She's as good. As any of these. I'm gonna try obligatory. For belmont anthony's got beleza for rudy rodriguez very very talented field of three year. Old fillies in the grade one launchings test goes race eight tomorrow at saratoga.

Lunar Water is More Abundant Than Previously Thought

"Astronomers have discovered that water maybe far more abundant on the moon than previously thought water is is already being detected on the permanently shadowed floors of craters neither Luna polls with some never reaches and signatures for hydroxy polls that he's molecules made up one hydrogen and one oxygen atom has been detected on the lunar surface now, and you study reported in the Journal. Nature Astronomy is confirmed that water molecules comprising one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms. Good outage to uh-huh has been found in lunar regular. Even sunlit areas of the Moon, the observations were made by Sophia the stratospheric observatory for infrared astronomy a converted Boeing seven, four, seven SP airliner fitted with a two point seven meter infrared reflect telescope. The observatory which is operated by Nassar and the German Aerospace Centre de la was able to detect the molecules in the Moon Southern Hemisphere Safiya Project Site Alexandra Roy from dealer says scientists have been looking for water on the moon ever since the first lunar rocks were brought back to earth in the nineteen sixties. However evidence it's been hard to come by the first confirmation of Luna, water came in two thousand and eight from this moon. Meteorology Mabuhay aboard the Indian Chan One spacecraft which detected frozen on the shaded floors of Doc. Paula. Craters Sophia was able to identify the mistake fingerprint of water molecules in the mid infrared range at a wavelength of six micrometres in the vicinity of the the crater in the moon southern fear, and that raises some interesting questions where did the water in these non polar regions come from and how come it can persist in these areas without an atmosphere surface temperatures can read something like two hundred and thirty degrees. Celsius hot enough to cause water to evaporate under the hate of the light of Sun. Now, it's possible that micrometeorites which are. Constantly falling onto the lunar surface I carrying small quantities of water which deposited the lunar rocks during collisions. In the process, the water becomes enclosed in tiny glass bead like structures in the ground. Another idea involves a two stage process in which hydrogen from the solar wind riches the lunar surface combined with hydroxyl molecules on the ground to form water molecules. The data required by Safiya indicates that most of this water being detected so far lies within the substrate covering the lunar surface. Now, we're not talking about much Roy estimates. It's about the. Equivalent of a three mealy milliliter. A can of drink spread a resurface area, the size of a football pitch in reality, it means the moon still dry than the desert's of earth, but the quantity of water that's been discovered could still prove important future missions to the moon severe. We'll now observe the moon sunlit surface during different. Luna faces to investigate this water phenomenon in greater detail sinus that this will open up a new insight into where the water on the moon comes from how it's stored and how it's distributed across the surface. Meanwhile a second study also reported in the journal Nature Astronomy modeled areas of the lunar surface cast in permanent shadow finding that these so-called cold traps contain at least twenty percent of all the water is on the moon it seems small scattered. Cold trips are scattered across the lunar polar regions and could provide accessible water resources which could be used for drinking for making oxygen for breathing and making oxygen and hydrogen for rocket fuel. One of the study's authors. No, but Shraga, offer from the Planetary Science Institute says Future Lunar Rovers may have a hard time driving into date dot craters. With extremely low temperatures but smaller cold traps would be far more accessible. He says approximately ten to twenty percent of the cold trap area for water is fantasy contained within microcode traps must witcher less that a major across the discovery changes sciences perspective of water on the Moon, which until now is focused on the largest water as was situated within the broadest deepest craters at high latitudes astronomer. Johnny Horner. From the University of southern Queensland says these latest discoveries of water on the moon will play a major role in the autumn missions returning humans to the lunar surface in twenty twenty four. Ways, you can look at of them that he's much more general and the people took much. It's what really shattering this myth, the Walter Scott in the innovest, which is something that's been a bit of bath mindset. A couple of decades since got my career Walter is everywhere. It's just it's Walter ice rather than liquid. Well, what we found over the last decade of so it's the most lessons that we look the more West finding.

However, you understand that word now where does that memory take you? Well I wouldn't have thought of anything spiritual when I was a child. Now my grandfather was a congregational minister. I never met him. We mom my sister. Came to live in this house for I. Am now with my grandmother and Moms two sisters. So was he the husband? Of Danny? Was He that other of your grandmother you call Danny as? He was the husband of Danny.

Chinese premier: 'We must be fully prepared for a tough struggle'

"My panel this week are three people who've been following events in China very closely for years in our studio in Beijing. I have Safiya Yan she's the Beijing correspondent of the telegraph newspaper. And she specializes in China's economy. I also have Ian Johnson there with her. He's a Pulitzer prize winning journalist writing out of Beijing and also down the line from Newark, New Jersey, I'm joined by Sarah, sue and communist with the state university of New York as Vincent mentioned, the National People's Congress. China's annual parliamentary meeting is in session, sometimes it can be quite celebrate Tori, a chance for communist leaders to Pat themselves on the back. But this year amid worries about the economy the mood was a bit different. Listen to some of the language from the big speech delivered by the Premier League. Gene yet. And should you engine in the past year? China has faced a complex and severe internal and external situation that has rarely been seen for years. With the economy burying the new downward pressure. But under the staunch leadership of the communist party with president Xi Jinping at the helm, the Chinese people of all ethnic groups forced to head vigorously and fulfilled. Major targets in economic and social development. It also made major progress insecure in a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. So fear, you were at the NPC, and you heard the premier speech, what was the atmosphere like there? Well, like, you would expect any other year. There's been a lot of propaganda and a lot of political theater going on as the NBC kicked off Premier Li Chong speech to take a more muted tone, and it's really marked difference from the sort of environment. We were in at this time last year in China this time last year, president Xi Jinping had scrapped term limits. He looks every bit the unstoppable strongman, but you fast forward a year to now China's really started to kind of roll back rhetoric. It's swagger what it wants to show and the tone that Premier Li had a speech on Tuesday, definitely was kind of walking things back a little bit and just trying to at least, you know, sort of point towards the fact that there are some challenges ahead on the road and trying to manage expectations a little bit more, Ian you travel widely around China. What have you been witnessing in the past year? What's the economic outlook outside of Beijing will one struck? By the fact, that a lot of the things that have driven China's growth over the past decade things like urbanization and big infrastructure projects that this really they've hit a point of diminishing returns, the country's not urbanizing as quickly as before. There aren't as many people moving from the countryside into cities and the big infrastructure projects are still being built, but they're making less and less economic sense. I was I was just in a western city. She and and they're they're building a big high speed rail out to ching high, which is this province on the Tibetan plateau. And this engineer. I was talking to such me. I don't know if this makes any sense at all to build a high-speed railway just isn't the population density is a huge amount of money, we're spending. But these things keep getting built. And I think there's a sense that it just makes less and less sense. And it's true that the government's talking a good game about this. They're trying to make the structural changes. But actually they've been saying this. Now for years, and there is scant evidence that it's really happening yet. All right, Sarah from your vantage point in the United States. What are using their concerns about economic challenges in China that could refer to in his speech. Well, I think that there are a couple of different and opposing views. One of them can be found within members of the Trump administration who view China as a threat and Trump has been pretty interested in this U S, China trade war, which has been going on and has gloated that the US has more power more economic power than China does and can out last China in a trade war. So there's that perspective that is triumphant regarding China's declining growth, and then there's another aspect for firms like apple and Starbucks that are interested in China's growing consumption. China's economic slowdown is a serious barrier to their expansion in that nation and also for people who are interested in selling real estate in certain areas of the country. They see a slowdown in China's foreign direct investment and overseas real estate investment that is very concerning for them. Okay. So we have worries mounting inside China and also Sarah, you mentioned that that bubbling U S China trade war for now. Let's take a closer look at the challenges facing the economy, and how the party is trying to deal with them. It's been said that China has a GDP fetish. And as I mentioned earlier in my conversation with Vincent neither there's a fixation on GDP growth, and what the targeted growth number is, historically. Why is this such a big deal in China in comparison to other major economies so fear? Can you take a stab at that? Well, I so long we've seen double digit growth in the Chinese economy. The slowdown. We're seeing now was always on the docket. And the big question the entire world has asked for by longtime is how fast I slowdown will occur. Because if there's a really big ramp a really fast ramp down China is the world's second largest economy. China's sneezes the rest of the world catches a cold. So that's why all eyes have been on China for so long and this idea GDP targets it's quite measurable for local governments here something that they can try to strive for. It's a number that they can go for and it's a way for a country in this state of the state of development that China is to try to track their own progress, but that's been problematic for a lot of different ways. Because these numbers don't really capture a lot of the nuances that are really happening. And so this shift there is a difference in the pace of growth that we've seen. But again, as I said, it doesn't capture certain nuances that are now starting to happen in the economy as Beijing tries to move from this old growth model of low end, cheap manufacturing, cheap exports towards something that's a little bit more advanced manufacturing towards services higher. Sump shen. Can we trust the numbers coming out of Beijing? Well, we don't have to trust the numbers. But I think we can say that there are fairly consistent and it was fast. And now it's slowing and it's about half or even less than half than it was in the gogo years in the two thousands. So you see this across the board, and this leads to all kinds of social tensions inside China because in the past there was also unequal growth, but all boats for rising, so people were willing to give the government or by because at least things were getting better. And people could always feel that at least their children's feature would be better. And now, it's not so sure a housing prices are unaffordable, it's really hard for young people to buy a place even a second tier or third tier city. It's harder and harder to find work because you have to be really well qualified for this new economy China wants to build so the challenges are really are not less than in the past. And I think that it's it's something it's it's just a series of headaches for the government. So if we look at how Chinese people are dealing with the economic challenges on a day to day basis, maybe they don't mind so much that GDP figures or GDP targets aren't completely accurate, but Sarah, what do you think of outsiders who were who are looking at China? And it's progress does it matter that they might be questioning the veracity of the numbers coming out of Beijing. Of course. So people are concerned, I'm outside of China, and even within China that a lot of the growth is created by this artificial stimulus that it's government expansion of credit as well as fiscal stimulus that is responsible for economic growth now. But I just want to go back for a moment. I noted that people in China may not be concerned with the GDP figure. I think that people are concerned about growth itself and there. Our own circumstances. And I think that some people are concerned about whether they're going to maintain their employment in the future. Now, the situation is becoming increasingly dire in terms of the job market. And I think that you know, this is something that people are really keeping an eye on.
