How Scott Stallings Balances Golf and Family Life
"I have a real question. So obviously you have kids that are in school, you're pretty close age wise, like how does that affect travel now, you know, you can pick and choose your schedule, which is badass, but you guys like you it up at the start of the year. I know during school, it's totally a different ball game, but how do you guys want to Hawaii? What's going down? Yeah, I mean, it's definitely we had a little bit of a calendar meeting on Friday and had a chance to kind of figure out what we're doing with kids and my kids are old enough now where I guess one positive thing of COVID is now kids can kind of do school and not have to necessarily be there. So the school they go to is pretty good understanding when they miss that game down the tour championship for the end of the week. A couple of weeks ago and they've been pretty good to work with us so far and kind of seeing what it looks like. But I want my kids to have an opportunity to kind of see what for more or less what I do when I'm gone. And I understand that like I actually send friends don't think I actually have a job. That just go around and do that, but have a chance to kind of see what we work for and have a chance to truly play with the best players in the world. And my son's a big Scottish upper fan. So he made it abundantly clear to me that he was ready to go watch him instead of me. Which, to be honest, the way I was playing with somebody and go watch him like a cheer bomb. So, but I mean, it's definitely a unique factor to kind of bring in a lot of people don't really more or less pay attention to that and they kind of unfortunate that it involves a ton of travel, a bunch of time away and different things to kind of do all that. So when my wife's a rockstar and does all the stuff that kind of behind the scenes that people don't really see to kind of keep our traveling circus together and do together as a family as much as we possibly can.

Okay, why don't we know any given the number of Republicans we know? Sean is the only white supremacist that I know, and even he's leaving the white supremacy. He is now into Scottish supremacy.

"But long term, what lasting impacted this have? Well, exactly. And as people are welcomed and so the UK government can also open doors as well. Some extra effort there to welcome refugees. As this continues, we'll need to think about refugee people become empowered and are less vulnerable when they have choice and when they have financial independence. So thinking about livelihoods options, making sure that people are legally registered so that they have, you know, they have their rights and they can realize their rights. Is that something, for example, you know, we've seen in horrendous exploitation of Syrian refugees around the region in the Middle East, but also sometimes in Europe as well, right? When people don't have those kind of legal papers, it can put them in real danger. So it's looking at all of the different elements that make people vulnerable, make them rely on others, take away their choice and independence. And that's where we put in the protection measures. That's where we give them power. So they're not vulnerable to exploitation. Susie, thank you for your insights this morning. Pleasure. Thank you. Thanks for having me. Now the Scottish government is expected to introduce its long awaited gender reform Bill tomorrow. If passed, it would make it easier for transgender people to obtain a gender recognition certificate. The BBC's Scotland correspondent lorna Gordon joins me now, good morning to you lorna, so could you just explain what the purpose of the gender reform bill is? And what exactly is being proposed? The bill would reform the process by which transgender people gain legal record mission of the life's they lived in the gender. They lived their life in. It would amend the current law, it wouldn't abolish the previous law. And I think in fact, it would make it easier for transgender people to legally change their gender. The reason why the Scottish government thinks this is needed is because it says the current system has an adverse impact on people applying for gender recognition due to the requirement for a medical diagnosis and what they say is the level of intrusion required. It says it doesn't want to transgender people to go through procedures which are demeaning, intrusive, distressing, stressful. And it says it needs to take accounts of international developments, bring the country in line with other countries such as the Republic of Ireland, Norway Malta, Denmark, for instance. And also it says that the system as it currently is, is complex and needs to be simplified. So what the bill could propose, what we know is that there's been consultations and the proposals as published for the consultation suggested that they could reduce the time of transgender person would live in their acquired gender from 24 months. That's two years to a minimum of three months with a further period of three months of reflection. Remove the need for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria and as proposed.

"Scottish mortgage investment trust which has about $24 billion in client assets and has been around since 1907 or so So let's start with a broad question You were early to spot the potential for some really explosive growth stocks and the role very different I'm thinking about Tesla Alibaba Amazon what were the tells of each of these that led you to think hey there's really something special here I think fundamentally there are two important tracks in this Barry To discuss trying elucidate I thought process of Now I think really you're looking for the scale and this has become almost but all to say But the scale of the addressable market that is there And very often I think it's key to stress this That scale is not necessarily all that obvious at the start of it When Amazon was a bookseller when Tesla was a sporting goods company or you read about the early days of Alibaba when there were 20 of it You can't really get to that But I think that means that a critical important part of this is a management that can accept that type of open endedness And that type of time horizon And that type of business decisions that we were talking about Now if I look at this from an intellectual point of view we've had a splendid relationship with a set of academics who've tried to focus on what's really happened in the stock market From that point of view And I think the history is going right back to the Dutch East India Company That are very small number of people dominate And this was our experience ourselves that you had to have that ability of the management to think in those broad terms But we acquired ever great conviction of this When it wasn't just our own experience But from the work of Hendrick besson binder at Aristotle's state university In just stocks outperforming treasury bills they're onwards And to put this in context his data on the American market goes back to 1926 and 24,000 companies in U.S. common stocks since then Now over that time half the value of a T bills Has been created by just 90 companies Now talking to Hendrick he would agree that these companies don't just have huge markets but they have a willingness to say we don't know that it's going to take us And you mentioned there as we all often do Amazon within this Now the possibly of all the many brilliant things that Jeff Bezos has said and done I think it was one of his initial comments that there was this weirdness about his business that everything he and Amazon use got better and cheaper usually by around 50% per annum And then he paused and probably gave a characteristic laugh and said which I think is really important I don't know where this is going to take me but I think it is going to be very exciting Now we don't know and surely we didn't know about AWS and the like And I think what you're there by looking for is both that type of management ASTRO in general And something specifically individual We've been lucky to have on the board of Scottish mortgage since sadly now return Professor Sir John K who's work you probably know But a truly brilliant and thoughtful economist who really puts jobs later you've talked to him myself On our biggest test board meetings at other discussions But I think one of the best sentences that even Jon has written Is the start of one of his books where he compares great companies with fiction and he cites the first line of an accord in there which says that all unhappy marriages are different but a little happy marriage is the same And John's take is the second line is it's the reverse in companies They're all great companies are unique and all mediocre companies are the same And I think if you run through all these examples and we may well do with some of those They are unique and they have a different interpretation So my challenge to myself sticking with the Amazon example is instead of we spotted it early what took us so long Because we only became major owners of Amazon in approximately 2004 I think if you go back and read and try and ex out all the subsequent Successes But if you read what Jeff Bezos wrote in 1997 I think you and I would agree that it is a unique document And I think you can find that form of thought processes about the future of their companies in all the truly great companies Yes I think a lot of us read that initial letter to shareholders but we probably didn't see it for 15 or 20 years not a lot of us read it and really understood it back in 1997 That may be I mean I almost think we don't come back to my comments about our ownership We made it more difficult for ourselves Barry by waiting those intervening 6 or 7 years because I think one skepticism had only grown over that point I'm always amused frustrated now when people talk about the late 1990s as some sort of just simply a bubble I think there was also here for once I would find myself agreeing with Peter Thiel There was also a huge amount of clarity around that point And I think people's ability to explore those ideas was there But yet if I compare what Amazon was saying what Jeff Bezos was saying about that point of time Compared to what the average telecoms or media company equally sucked up in the whole boom was I think you could make that differentiation So I know that her parents are stressed and plainly There's another one at the beginning of this year The correlations go to one and all companies regarded as the same But I genuinely believe that the market and the articulation given by individuals and companies of their culture and ambitions does enable you to differentiate Coming up we continue our conversation with James Anderson.

"And advancing trans rights were seen purely through the lens of people who claim a transgender identity with no consideration given to the potential impact on women. So women's groups were not invited to give evidence that there has been a more recent inquiry where it was more balanced in terms of who came forward. So the concern is that this dynamic is still in play and that women's concerns are not being listened to by the minister. And just to clarify, when you talk about women's concerns that women's rights groups what do you mean by that? Well, there's an emerging set of fairly recently formed grassroots women's groups who are concerned about the principle of gender self identification and what that means for existing women's rights, particularly enshrined in the accordion act 2010. Do you consider yourself a campaigner as part of that? Well, I think the three of us two of us are former civil servants and one is a criminologist. And we're very probably our kind of uniting interest is an interest in the policy making process. But we absolutely start from a principle that we believe that sex matters in policy and law making. And your organization is based on women's sex based rights. But at the moment, I don't think we ever anticipated that we would be doing this work for years down the line. We all have other interests in different parts of public policy, higher education, criminology. But we have found ourselves in this sport. And with that interest in how policy is made and also your background as you say is a former civil servant. These groups as you define as women's rights groups, where they invite it by the minister to come in. Well, that's not very clear. I mean, the way that the response we have in Scottish government was word. It was that they had accepted any request for meetings with the minister. I mean, this is, I suppose, that's the issue of just a pause on that for a moment..

"Easy situations to be in, but I'm very much against those that argue that anyone who calls out abuse in any community must be inherently racist for doing so. But on the other hand, I'm also going to call out those who challenge who take up issues such as sports marriage or all of these violence for their own political agenda. A racist agendas were to instrumentalize these for political agendas. So I think it's being alert to those kinds of pitfalls at the same time. Pregnant. I could keep talking to you for the rest of the hour, but we do have to call our time to an end sadly. But I hope you're at least getting some kind of celebratory cake or biscuit or tea or something lovely today. It's a funny old time because we're not all together with our colleagues a lot. But I hope we can keep talking because it doesn't sound like you're anywhere near giving up any of your fights, even if you're stepping down as director of south hall black sisters pregnant Patel, thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you very much. All the best there. Message is coming in a message from Rachel. Excellent analysis of the problems with identity politics by pregnant Patel from south of black sisters and women's are this morning. Pragma Patel another one here from eve's charity cutting through the noise and nonsense and true to the fight against sexism racism and religious fundamentalisms. We owe her and sapp's blood sisters so much. Feminism and emancipatory movement, but not only women identity politics is a barrier, some messages to that effect wanted to read a bit of a flavor to our conversation there with pregnant while keeping going with campaigns and with lobbying and what's going on perhaps behind the scenes. How widely is the Scottish government consulting on its plans to allow people to legally change sex without a medical diagnosis? The SNP included reform of the gender recognition act in its 2021 election manifesto committing to work quote with trans people, women, equality groups, legal and human rights experts to identify the best and most effective way to improve and simplify the process by which a trans person can obtain legal recognition so that trauma associated with that process is reduced. But a new freedom of information request has shown that the minister with responsibility for this area a woman called shona Robinson has met with 5 groups representing trans rights since last May's election and two public bodies, but no women's rights groups according to the woman who put in the request who I'm now joined by the former civil servant Lisa McKenzie from Murray Blackburn Mackenzie, which is an Edinburgh based policy analysis collective. I should say we did ask the Scottish government for a representative to come on the program. But no one was made available. I do have a statement to which I will come. Lisa McKenzie good morning. Good morning. I wanted to start by asking why are you submitted this freedom of information request in the first place? Well, I think my colleagues and I looked at the manifesto commitments that the SNP carried in 2021. And found it quite heartening it promised a deliberative process for coming settling upon proposals for reforming the gender recognition act. You've just read out the commitment. It's very open ended. So we wanted to know what had happened in the 8 months since the election who had the minister met with. Because it's important to see that the draft legislation is due to land in the Scottish parliament any week now. So the deliberative process is closing in terms of time..

"Events from 2021. I've asked you to select one. Before we get into that, you are a bit of a Celtic fan and you were part of a Celtic podcast. Can you tell me a bit about that? Thanks for having me. Yeah, so I guess supporting Celtics something that you kind of born into, especially on this side of the world and then yeah it's a passion of mine to support the club and follow it as best I can from this time zone and there's a lucky we're lucky enough to have a lot of other mad Celtic supporters over on this part of the world. So it's easy enough to find like minded people and I met a couple of likes that were interested in doing a podcast and there was three of us that started the sport class called the Celtic Dan under podcast. Just talking all things Celtic. It's no longer a guy anymore, but yeah, it was a lot of fun while we did it. Well, I had the opportunity to listen to a lot of listening to it. You certainly have strong views on how Celtic performed. You certainly had some really good insights. So I'm hoping that you'll be able to provide some insight on this podcast about your sporting moment. Can you tell us what that is? You brought this idea up to me before my particular moment happened and I'm glad that we're recording this after the fact, but my sporting moment would be Celtic winning the League Cup just a couple weeks ago or a week ago, rather. Especially within Australian manager at the helm, it was a really monumental thing for Australian football and also my club. The getting ready to celebrate once again. They got so used to the feeling. Celtic are back in the business of delivering trophies. Previous sports Cup winners 2021 22. Kyoto the hero calin McGregor the captain. Another day they were just taking a break. The gloom of last season is in the past. This is pushed to collusion. And that promises to be decked and silver. For those who are listening who don't know much about football in Scotland can you talk us through what sort of competition there are and what Celtic actually won this month? Yeah, certainly. So you'll have in the top flight of Scottish football. You'll have three main competitions each season you'll have the Scottish League Cup. The Scottish FA Cup and then the Scottish Premier League. And so the one that was the first trophy of the season the first one up for grabs is the Scottish League Cup. And that was the one that Celtic has just won. Beating hibernian two one in the final. So the first trophy on offer was the League Cup and Celtic one at under the new manager age poster cogley, what impresses you about to post a call? You would know, as well as anyone else. The way he turned out football club in Australia around from aging minnows of an old boys boys club to back to back champions, you know, three time Australian champions. And to that rebuild that Ange did at the role was incredible, especially in a salary capped Lake. It's nearly unprecedented. And then he went on to Melbourne victory where he was there for only a short period of time to then get the international role with the soccer rose, led us to our first major trophy internationally, which was the 2015 Asian cup. And again, against some real heavy weights of evasion end world football so everywhere he goes is a serial winner went to the J league after that and when the league Yokohama marinos and then came into Celtic, which was a really, really poor state. You know, we had we had the worst season in history breaking some of the performances, you know, 5 losses in a row for the first time since the 40s. Last season. And it was just incredible. You know, we had four players for superstar players for starting 11. Plays leave at the end of last season at the start of this season when edge came in and so he had a massive rebuild no one gave him a chance that was talk it. And you'd be sacked before Christmas. But those of us who knew how he works and his methodology behind, rebuilding a football club. Just knew that if he was given enough time, he would turn things around, and he's his football brain and his philosophies just so exciting. And it's kind of remarkable how quickly he's won this first trophy, you know, within 6 months of him taking the job. He's won his first major honor at Celtic. And he's done that with a threadbare. Well, you know, so yeah, that's that's really impressive. When you first heard that ants pastor cogley was a likely candidate to be the Celtic manager. What were your thoughts? And then how did you feel when he actually was announced as a Celtic manager? Excitement, maybe a little bit of trepidation because I knew that, you know, being Australian, he would instantly be on the back foot. There'd be so much. A stigma that if you're an Australian, you know, you can't know football. You don't understand football you can't play football. And I just knew that no one would know who he is, so he would automatically be disregarded as a cheap option or yeah, a lesser option to some other names that will be linked with at the time. And I was like, sort of automatically defensive. I was defensive straight away because and just brought me some moments of just joy previously that I felt like personally attacked by people not giving him the credit that I thought he was due. So yeah it was instantly so excited that he was linked because I know how good he is to then also defensive because I know how good he is. So yeah. And I think the first thing I did was call you. And, you know, yeah, I think we had a really good discussion about it and called a couple of other family members and spoke to them about it. But yeah, it was a really odd sort of disbelief, but yeah, really excited. Good afternoon, everyone. Look, I'm absolutely equally humbled and excited and about the responsibilities being given to me is manager of the Celtic football club by from my perspective, it's something that I would have dreamt about years ago, bring over here and managing in Europe, but given the opportunity to manage one of the big clubs is fantastically for me, as I said, it's a great challenge and an exciting opportunity when I'm looking forward to and hopefully over the course of time we create some special moments here at Celtic park and rightfully.
"scottish" Discussed on AI Today Podcast: Artificial Intelligence Insights, Experts, and Opinion
"Actually start to build up a kind of corpus of knowledge around this stuff. So that's one sort of thing. The second set of things is actually about, I think, yeah, the resources that are providing for schools, you know, really important. I mentioned earlier the recognition that we have that AI presents particular challenges for children and young people. And so helping them to understand what these technologies mean for them. And the sensitivities and risks about them, we run a really great event with colleagues from across European countries a couple of weeks back. And there's a really good question I asked about just what are the particular risks for children around these technologies and I think if you think back to growing up with the Internet and data driven technologies, the kind of exhaust gas and data that you have as a young person chart your whole life course don't wish to be too forward but I suspect nobody on this call has quite grown up from birth and lived their entire lives online in quite the way that children young people are today. And what that means for them in terms of the impact that the way that data might be used for them, I think is something that we need to help them through. And yeah, the wider public commuting engagement as well that we're developing and finally our point to that story I play but right, which isn't just a resource for businesses and organizations. It's a resource for citizens that they can pick up and use. But very much the governance that we've set up around the AI alliance that we have in Scotland does have that community element as well. So there's a whole range of things. And it's really fantastic to see actually how well people are engaging with us. So it is an issue and a subject that certainly excites a lot of interest from citizens, which is brilliant. Yeah, that is great to hear. You know, and having these conversations is wonderful as well, because it helps everybody know, hey, you do have a strategy. Let's discuss it. And definitely read it, as I mentioned, we'll link to it in the show notes. And I encourage our listeners to check that out. Because there is no one central location for AI either. Lots of different regions have a lot to contribute across the world. And that's one thing that we have noticed for the past for coming on 5 years that we've had our podcast. It's really been international. And we like to talk to people from all over the world about how they're doing things. So whenever we have interviews, we always end our podcast with the same question because we love to hear the responses that we get and sometimes we have general themes, but no two responses are ever the same, and that's why we love this question so much. As a final note, what do you believe the future of AI is in general? And its application to organizations, governments, and beyond. Yeah, that is a very interesting question, isn't it? And you have to publish a compilation of the answers someday because I'm sure it would be it would be exciting listening. So I guess I think particularly in higher risk applications, I see it being very much a supportive technology. So keeping humans in the loop and essentially enhancing human agency and making our working lives more productive and more rewarding, but because I do think there are risks that we need to pay attention to and many of these are kind of well rehearsed in media misinformation. Around entrenching bias, and I think we start to see emerging deep differentiators in the world. It was interesting your comment that everybody's got something to add. But I also can see that the almost like blocks in terms of the thinking around these issues emerging globally and the different approaches that governments and supranational organizations are taking to managing those issues. So I think it's quite interesting to see that happening. And I think therefore in a free society, the potential for AI to be pervasive and help us unlock productivity in societal benefits. Does need to see us developing that trust and confidence in our communities and the potential to use approaches like synthetic data to enable new applications whilst protecting confidentiality of citizens, I think, is a really exciting opportunity. That helps to see our way through some of those sensitivities around trust and privacy and protection. So yeah, I think we can get it right. I think AI will help us to tackle some of those big challenges. I think on a mundane level, you know, it'll help us with kind of automation and greater efficiency and that kind of thing. But I think given the challenge we are facing into such as climate change, I think the potential to help us a lot better use of resources make better decisions about where to make investments and understand really complex issues, I think that's where I'd love to see some really exciting applications coming through in a pretty confident they will be. That's fantastic. I know that we are looking forward to the same application. So it's Kathleen mentioned. It's always great to hear these different perspectives on this question as to where we see the future of AI going. And I do like the focus on privacy and these issues around trustworthiness and ethics. People are becoming much more aware of their data footprint in this world. They're aware of both the positive uses of data. It's as I have mentioned on so many other podcasts, it's so interesting that the number of people that are following public health measures and data measures that you would never would think. You know, the average family is tracking things like our values and hospitalization rates and vaccination rates and we're keeping eye on these measures. Of course, it would be nice if we had learned in a much, much younger age, things were on statistics and what matters and significance. Because sometimes people use numbers and they're not so sure about the proper context of this. This is part of a data literacy, which hopefully is making its way more into the elementary school. So these are really interesting. People are becoming more aware of it, and they're aware of both the positive use. And then, of course, the negative uses things are coming out about that. And so there's more attention and awareness. And I think having that as part of the foundation for the Scottish government AI strategy and the framework and some of the things you mentioned, the NPF and this AI playbook even that you mentioned very interested in seeing these things up to the extent that we can share those if we have available, we will make sure that we link to them in our show notes. And yeah, even if you're a small business working in the retail industry in Colombia, you should still be paying attention to what the Scottish AI government is doing with its strategy because we are participating in this global environment. This global economy and this need to make mistakes or to try to reinvent the wheel. So that's where we are really thankful. So on that note, I really want to thank so much our featured guest here.

"scottish" Discussed on AI Today Podcast: Artificial Intelligence Insights, Experts, and Opinion
"That was kind of the genesis of it. And that led us into a process of developing the strategy with a really strong emphasis on engagement. So across a cross section of Scottish society, and what mattered to them, bringing a lot of expert voices together as well to advise us on that. And not just from within Scotland but from across the UK and perspectives from outside of our own ecosystem. One of things I'm always very keen to have is a bit of challenge and perspective from outside our own our own ecosystem. So that's one reason why it's great to have these kind of conversations. So yeah, the message that came through were pretty clear that there are those fears and that people citizens Scotland are looking for us to take action to address those and to make sure that the adoption of these technologies is trustworthy, ethical and inclusive and that's the vision that we have for our strategy. But also, and I think this is something that I was particularly pleased about that there was a consistent optimism as well that if we do get that right that this technology can really unlock so some real benefits for us for our society and our economy. So yeah, that led us to have that focus on trust ethics and inclusivity. And I think when we did the launch of strategies, as you say in March, 2021, and I was delighted to see how much it resonated with society, but also with those who joined us from around the world to talk to us about the strategy when we launched it from New Zealand from Europe. From the countries and indeed from the U.S. and clearly what we're saying there has resonated with people here and elsewhere, which is fantastic. Yeah, you know, it's interesting, too, because AI has been around for many decades and actually the UK has been thought leader in artificial intelligence for quite some time. I mean, Alan Turing, you know, and so those concepts back in the 1950s, 40s and 50s, you know, I mean, it's been around for quite some time. And I know that the UK in particular broadly has had a focus on ethical being a leader and ethical responsible AI. So I really enjoyed when we read the strategy that you're focusing on that as well. For our listeners that have not had a chance to look at the strategy or if they'd like to look at it a little bit deeper, we will link to it in the show notes and I definitely encourage you to check it out. But with this strategy, can you talk more about the strategies goal of motivating Scotland to become a leader in the development and use of trustworthy ethical and inclusive AI, maybe what that means and how you want to go about doing that? Yeah, absolutely. So as a thing earlier, the strategy and that focus really reflect views from across society and that reflects I think the fact that that trust ethics and inclusivity is vital to see adoption. And I just want to be clear that that's not a defensive position. Ethics being ethical trustworthy inclusive is not a defense position or indeed nice to have. It's fundamental to adoption and public services and economy. This is a necessary condition to unlock that potential. So I think that would be sort of starting point to this. And I think the key to successful be the work we're doing to move beyond the principle. So our strategy for those who are hopeful go and go and read it, we'll see that our vision will then be guided by a set of principles that we've adopted. And again, looking to be as internationally outward looking as we can with adopted the OECD's principles on trustworthy AI and UNICEF's guidance on AI for children as well, which was a particular focus actually in the strategy given that we recognize the particular challenges that AI brings for children. But going beyond those principles, which will guide us to actually provide the tangible approaches that instantiate those principles in the way that practitioners folks who are developing these technologies and deploying them actually do that and the way that citizens and public services are going to actually apply those principles and practice. And so the key thing that we're doing there is we're taking those and using to form the development of our AI playbook, which we're going to publish in spring next year. And that's going to be the thing that's going to really, what's going to be informed by the needs of our stakeholders first and foremost is going to bring that real understanding of the application of those principles to real world use cases. It's also going to be something that will continue to iterate over. Because neither the technology nor public attitudes are static in this space. And so we're really opening candid about that. But it will enable people, as you said, businesses and citizens in our economy to really understand how they can apply this technology in ways which are trustworthy ethical and inclusive. Yeah, that's incredibly important. And as you mentioned, ethics and responsible AI should not be an afterthought. I know one of the things that we do, especially in our training and certification, I know our listeners know this, that we focus a lot on doing AI rights. And doing AI is kind of an interesting two sided coin. There's the one part of running AI projects the right way because there are so many failures for AI project in a misaligned expectations, challenges around data quality and data quantity. Many issues around biting off too much honestly trying to boil the ocean. These are all these sort of ten main reasons why AI projects fail. And by the way, a little bit of foreshadowing for our podcast listeners, we will actually be doing a podcast series and include all of our listeners to stay subscribed because we will be doing a series on each one of these common failure modes for AI kind of more of an educational band for our audience. But as mentioned, you know, in our training and certification on the CPM AI methodology, which, as you know, is a best practices methodology for running AI projects. Ethics and responsibility I must be considered at the very first steps because it's an issue of trust, as you mentioned, if you can't trust the system that you're depending on for algorithmic decision making for predictive analytics for detecting anomalies or detecting patterns for recognizing people or individuals with an images for the conversations you have with them, if you can't trust the systems and you will just not use the technology or you'll resist it or you'll apply it in inappropriate ways or trust it in ways that should not be trusted. So this is very, very key and critical and for our listeners, if you are interested in learning more about that training and certification, we do encourage you to go to courses dot cognitive dot com. That's courses dot COG and ILY, TI, CA dot com. But picking up on that note, which is a really around education and knowledge and training and all that sort of stuff. How do you see this question for you? How do you see the Scottish government's AI strategy helping those who are trying to put AI into practice, the Scottish companies or the individuals, the citizens who are using or interacting with the AI technology, how are you seeing helping increase the knowledge around AI and also helping companies or organizations or government agencies build more trustworthy and ethical and responsible AI systems? So I'll answer that in a second, but just reflect on something you point you just made day riding really interesting content that you're talking about there. I think your point about ethics need to be considered rightly, so indeed actually throughout a project because the nature of these technologies means that it's not like a once and done thing. It's throughout the life cycle of a project is a great one. And actually, I was just thinking about the way we responded to the COVID crisis. A lot of which was sort of data driven, right? And new data driven technologies and actually one of the three principal elements to our data driven response. One was around the platforms and technology has around the capability in the data. And the third actually was around the ethics and making sure that even when we're having to work at pace and.
Exploring the Inner Hebrides
"In some ways. The traditions of scotland survive most vividly in its islands off the west coast. These are the hebrides we've invited to of our favorite scottish guides into the studio to share stories and tips on their favorite islands. Liz listener is from fife. Cullen mirrors is from glasgow. And they're both here with us now to share a little better understanding of scotland's inner hebrides. Thanks for joining us. Thank you he cullen when you Think about the hebrides. We hear that word a lot hebrides. These are the islands off of the west scotland. But there's inner and outer hebrides. What's the story there. So and our hebrides. They're basically the ones that are closer to mainland scotland to hebrides further out. So probably most people going to visit islands of scotland and are of to access lists when you're thinking of the inner hebrides which ones are your favorites in which one's the most popular with tourists. Well open which is on the west coast of scotland is known as the charing cross of the islands as the saying the air unto the lord belongs and all the it contains except the kyle's in the western isles for these are all mic planes mcleans caledonian mcleans of the fatty company. So people will come to open. And that's the jumping off point to go to the islands. So open is the charing cross. Charing cross would be the big train station in london. Somewhere you depart go to different places so open would be the jumping off point. It's the big port on the mainland. From where the ferries go absolutely so. Kyle's what is kyle's kyle's of the stretches of water so the leyland's eye for the straight and on the missiles ago everything the lord's except for the aisles and the waters and that could make prince how the the the metrolink and forwards to the islands they caught passengers. The coty fleet the cardi tourists. So this is the ferry system caledonian mcbrayer because every time i think of an island scene. There's a dramatic ferry coming across. It is just beautiful thing. And you have the jumping off point in the real terminal Open and so people coming from moscow will die sleek connect with the on out so an answer to your question. Probably the most popular are the ones closest mull. Iona we can come back to 'cause i owned is really accessible as d. Are right for a particular reason
Influential Educators: NYC Sunday School Founder Catherine Ferguson
"Became an anchoring force. And catherine or katie's life. Though she was never taught to read or write she became well versed in the bible as a young teenager. Katie began attending a local presbyterian church. It was a largely scottish denomination and katie soon. Made an impression on isabella. graham isabella was a scottish. Born philanthropist and the founder of a school for girls when katie was around sixteen years. Old isabella graham bought her freedom for two hundred dollars. Katie was initially given six years to work off the debt but isabella later agreed to eleven months of work for one hundred dollars. Isabella's son-in-law raised the other half of the money by the age of eighteen. Katie was free. She soon married and had two children. The both died in infancy to support herself. Katie began making cakes but she soon became increasingly concerned about the children she saw on the street. The devastation from the revolutionary war along with the huge influx of immigrants created dire levels of poverty throughout new york. That was especially true in lower manhattan. Where katie had spent much of her life in seventeen ninety. Three katie began gathering children from the streets on sundays for religious instruction. They met at her home at fifty one warren street. The reverend from her church soon heard of her classes. He offered her space in a spare room of his new congregation on murray street. That's actually the street i live on. Now it's believed that katie's was the first sunday school in new york city over the course of her katie took in forty eight children. Some she rescued from the city's poor houses others from their families. She would raise them herself or help. Get them placed in better situations. Katie never had much money herself having spent it all on her children but she had an endless supply of prayers and defeat
What Lurks Beneath: The Legend of the Loch Ness Monster
"The modern day fascination with old nasty started in nineteen thirty three when aldy mckay and her husband were driving along loch ness and we all know that lock is scottish for lake right so they were driving along the loc when less than a mile out in the water. Algae mckay reported seeing a tremendous upheaval on the lock which previously had been a calm as a proverbial mill pond. That was my scottish accent. Mckay said she saw what she thought looked like the body of some huge creature resembling awale rolling and diving churning the water into a bubbling foam. The creature was large enough that when it took its final dive under the water sent out huge waves. Mckay and her husband stayed on the road for half an hour waiting to see if they would spot whatever it was again. But in that time it never resurfaced the only paper that ran a story about the mckay. Strange encounter was the inverness. Corier other than that. No one seemed very interested less than three months later married. Couple mr and mrs spicer. We're driving south along loch mess. When they claim to see a huge prehistoric creature. Cross the road in front of them headed toward the lake according to an interview. The spicer's gave to rupert gould. Who wrote the first book about the loch ness monster. The creature had a long neck and a low thick body about four or five feet high. Mr spicer said he couldn't see legs or tail but he did see something flopping up and down which he later thought was a tail curled around toward the front of the animal. The couple said they couldn't tell if they're creature entered the water because their view was obstructed. And they couldn't hear anything over the sound of their engine. The author gould however claimed to have been watching the lake the same day. The spicer's say they witnessed this thing cross the road and he confirmed that the water was particularly choppy and noisy at roughly location. The spicer's claim they saw the animal. Gould went into the interview skeptical but based on their description and a drawing. Mr spicer made he came out. Short that the spicer's were telling the truth and had in fact seen the loch ness monster.
The History of the Electric Car
"It or not. The electric automobile is almost two hundred years old in eighteen. Twenty eight hungarian priest by the name of unused djedovic created a simple electric motor and may have created a device that converted it into motion in eighteen. Thirty two scottish inventor robert anderson created a very simple vehicle which is basically a carriage a non rechargeable electric battery into crude electric motor. It didn't go very far and it didn't go very fast. But it was a self-propelled electric vehicle. Electric vehicles were mostly novelties. And weren't something that could find practical use. There was no centralized electrical generation at the time. And there were. No wires transmitting electricity. And moreover every time you use the car you had to get a brand new battery. It isn't believed that any of these very early vehicles actually ever carried a passenger. Many people in the mid nineteenth century created electric devices which moved including prototype electric trains however the fundamental problem that electric vehicles run into for poor batteries and very inefficient motors. The first big development came in eighteen fifty nine by french physicist guest on plenty who invented the acid lead battery. This was a breakthrough in that. The battery can be recharged over and over. Even though there had been improvements over the years this is still basically the same type of battery found in most cars today in eighteen. Eighty one french inventor gustav trevi created the first thing that we would probably recognize as an automobile. It was an electrically driven vehicle. That could carry a pasture down a public street trevi. Interestingly enough also applied electric motor to a boat thus creating the world's first outboard motor in eighteen eighty two englishman. Thomas parker produced a commercial electric vehicle. It wasn't until eighteen. Five that german engineer karl benz invented the first internal combustion engine automobile and the name benz should ring a bell to anyone who's remotely familiar with cars.
Josh Hammer on How Biblical Law Makes You Free
"And so josh let me just follow up. You know so. So in in the jewish belief of the old testament. It's this belief in the law that was given by god. And so if you were to even say that on a college campus you'll be ridiculed and mocked that the divine would give you away to live your life using the best reason based you can. Can you help equip the audience here of how do they tell their friends on. Secular type college campus. No there actually is a law and if you follow it will actually make you more free. You help us walk through that. Yeah now this is a fabulous question if they saw him and i both have a lot of thoughts on this on this exact topic actually so there is this herod dot. There was this their mentality. That is really kind of creeped in in the united states and a lot of western civilization for the past half-century really more than that the past century century and a half at least a lot of it is as intellectually downstream of enlightenment of particularly bad strands of enlightenment. Saw it i would add the alignment obviously complicated the scottish light of a heck of a lot better for example than other brands. But let's simplify a lot of this kind of this intuition that we are free when we are we have maximum consumer choice that we are free when we can use whatever social media platform. We want to realize our self realization self potential me. I'm a lawyer by training. And one of the more intimate supreme court cases of the past thirty forty years the planned parenthood versus casey kasem which effectively reaffirmed roe versus wade in nineteen ninety-two.

It's everyone's junie to define his or her own existence that's kind of this mentality to with climates right all this nonsense and it explains a lot as to why western civilization has just gone totally off the rails so rab has been adamant about this probably more eloquent ballad than basically anyone in this space. I don't want to take too much of his time. But there is a different conception of freedom is a different conception of freedom. that is not just libertarian. Live and let live. There's a different conception of freedom that true freedom that true liberty can only attained and fulfilled through living virtuous lifestyle which turning constrictions parameters and barriers in
Alok Sharma: Time Running out to Stop Climate Change Catastrophe
"World is dangerously close to running out of time to stop climate change catastrophe. That's the warning from Alec Sharma, the UK government's climate chief, who is leading the cop 26 summit to be held in the Scottish city of Glasgow later this year. In an interview with The Observer newspaper today, Mr Sharma said, the effects of radical climate change We're already clear with floods, fires, heat waves He said A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change due to be published tomorrow would be the starkest warning yet about what the future might hold. Well, let's You know, from Professor Andrew Shepherd, who's a glaciologist at the University of Leeds here in the UK, Um could you first professor please explain what the remit of this PC report is and what you think it might say. So I think everyone's familiar with these reports. Now we've had them for the past 30 years. Um, what this report is going to tell us is the latest changes in the Earth's climate We expect But it's also going to say that we've changed parts of our climate system for good actually, and that's surreal. Wake up call. We're going to have to live in a different environment in the future because we're not going to be able to reverse Some of the things that have happened. And we've seen so many stories recently, pointing to the possibility that some parts of the climate system are already passed. Tipping points. Oh what? What? Which are the ones that you're most concerned about? So there are quite a few. Actually, I think, um across climate science, maybe a dozen also have been identified. But there's some really obvious ones that people will have heard about retreat of the ice in the Arctic Ocean, for instance, and rapid melting and acceleration of glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland. And they might seem a long way away from people because they're at the polls. But as soon as I entered the ocean that affects sea levels,
"scottish" Discussed on The Mindless Morning Show
"I probably would lifelock lok for some like a i. Technology to find the words for eighty cents. I say that. And i make jokes about it and everything else like where i do swear like docker acom health. It's just a darker it's just the phrase sailor. Men's bring your own names. Are you personally pilot. Or whatever right balmy new fire. That would make sense a pilot not so much. I know a pilot ayler just like hard labor type things but i car because it starts just like my upbringing where i'm from all my friends while i guess just the way it is. I will say that. For the first two or three episodes of our show. I maintain thought and i would swear constantly and i just made a conscious decision to try and stop fat during the show i mean. Don't get me wrong. The occasional fox. Okay because sometimes you just need to show emphasis like me going. Oh my gosh isn't gonna work but fuck that you know what i mean. It works but i wouldn't say that our show is like a family friendly and it's not solis with carson carson in it. It's a lot more family friendly. Some more family friendly the next fucking show. I can I don't know like me and in the idea of curse words it just doesn't hit the same as it does with most people like to me. Yeah it it's my authentic busy. It is me what i want to say in. That's that and search warrants. The are the words words. But you don't like it tough shit people that do a lot of like fall into wards again giving them power. They're not they're fucking vocal ranges told the are though there to communicate. It's nothing to do with power. And all that. So i try to be as much as i don't like it. I try to be wary about how other people would feel when as like if someone who's really interested in our show bought they don't wanna lesson because me and necker gone. Well fuck you fuck bedford. You know that you know. I don't wanna i don't wanna lose patterson because of something that we could have very easily changed if you know what i mean. Get some righteousness self-righteous this thing here. We're we're battling the beginning. Yeah yeah so i mean. People are automatically thrown off. Because i mean they here naked mitch mcconnell and they're probably like fucking gone after that you know. This is what i would be off by the trigger wars..
"scottish" Discussed on The Mindless Morning Show
"Hand the okay. I'll give you that. That's a bit more racist. I think there are things wrong. Satan but okay my point. He keeps god and business. I'm argument for satan. I've ever heard this shit man. We're going to get cancelled back. That's absolutely fine. I'll make a new podcast. Yeah sorry not sorry. But yet i i like this and i mean i like it even though The amish style like i've i've trimmed mustache. Kept kinda like the beard. And i don't mind just like nothing else either. So like the sky deion so it's it's pretty versatile and i like it too because like my mohawk is versatile like it's a long as mohawk but it goes the side it looks fancy i can split it in half make it look like a super troop Two oh that's nice. Yeah i'm glad you've got mbeki. Thanks man you know. Like i try. I definitely try. Oh it shows eight shows thanks. Thanks so i'm so happy that you brought me on your show but kevin so why like. Can you live a sleep this you when you born. Where were you born. Scott all right so i was born in glasgow so i was born in glasgow. I lived in scotland. So i was about twelve now. What waves about. Let's go glasgow well as go lasso. My you're you're stepping on the lines of insult you know so i'm glasgow as i refer to as the unofficial capital of scotland. H the the main bet. Everybody knows and edinburgh being the council but ever builds glasgow's the barrier say It's basically central as you can get in scotland by was born. There didn't levin glasgow entire life. I lived in a place. I'm not even going to bother mentioning you people because it states is so unheard of and i'm not giving them any publicity on from there. We moved to london. When i was about twelve is my parents got new jobs so we moved on there and i just never really went back. I had no reason to. I'm not the biggest fan of scotland To be honest. I've always preferred the company of english people and european people and americans in a mexican ever ever ever bought when it comes to other scottish people. I it's weird. It's like it's like a mental block. I can't think of anything interesting to talk about them with. And it's like now just doesn't interest me. So i like england because i bumped off.
"scottish" Discussed on Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red
"A really interesting team in that they are. I guess the the better better than the sum of their parts top. Romo's has really got a nice job of making them do stuff so far but i think you pointed out like they've only played two games. You know it's not like they had a bye bye week so Just because they squeak out a one one draw against dallas. We shouldn't particularly be impressed with them. fafa because got a lot of pace though. He's a guy that you need to worry up You know. I think that this is the kind of strike in transition team and with a right wing like fafa peco's gonna lineup opposite sam vines who the rapids often push high in the attack. That could be dangerous That could be very dangerous for the rapids. I also think that maxine routine is the kind of forward who is really difficult to deal with for our centrebacks in particular in the he's fast You know he's good scott really good surprisingly for a thirty year old. He's got really good flat-out seen I would not want danny wilson to be caught with him in a flat out but race in zeal. That would end up badly for us. Now what are your thoughts on eastern First of all mark live fact. Check for you Houston has played four games not to their results in chronological order. Are they a two one win on the opening night of mls. on friday. That friday by score two to one over the san jose earthquakes a surprise here folks interconference battle technically takes place on a mid week game with multiple time zone changes for the away team. That's pretty easy. Expected result especially with the san jose earthquakes eating bill fitness in the early part of the season with their man marking so. I'm not entirely surprised by that result than us to houston to portland in portland after portland was playing seattle and then one one draw against l. Afc that carlos davila still hasn't been back or in a one one draw against fc dallas. On the weekend in. I think it's like oh pizza now. Technically it's not just the it's not just the l. capi tan for the canon. Because it's now it's the three teams including austin in their. Nfl like every single time. Dallas place used in markets. Always a one one draw like nobody ever gets a clean sheet. Nobody ever wins it. It's a hard fought game. That's pretty expected Jere point mark. This is a team that presses really well. Gene weitz really. Well you know they definitely have a similar to the rapids. They have a revenge of the island of misfit toys. United energy about them and tab ramos is a really really good motivator in knows that these are a bunch of guys who you know people like me and other people who get paid way more money to know and professionally think about this game at an analytical and as a pundit level didn't pick houston to make the playoffs and most of them at or near the bottom of the western conference in that certainly been a good motivating factor for them at times. And so this team that's gonna come in there. In a triumph press the rapids. I think that there's weaknesses really outside of tim parker and then i'm not sure what their midfield look. Look like i i. I'm not sure what to make of jones there in the midfield mark. Joe corona's a bit of a rehab case in the case as you were mentioning but i think this is a midfield that certainly can be had by the midfield three of the rapids especially if it ends up being Bassett along with kellyn. Acosta and jack bryson. They've got really good just uptempo in terms of their off all movement and outside of tim park right question. How well those attacking players however that backlines going to be in terms of going forward in their service and then also moving forward so this is a team that can be had by being. This is a team that at their best is when they are pressing the opponent. So kind of just like the big thing that i had for the recap of the minnesota game how well to the rapids do in terms of when they're on the ball and houston is pressing them you. The rapids beat themselves in terms of their own execution. Does houston beat them out at times. And then what happens vis-a-vis when houston's on the ball and the rapids are trying to press them to say nothing mark about houston deals with this from a fitness standpoint given. The minnesota was able to do that for about forty minutes. They dropped off. And i still think the rapids got a little bit lucky. In terms of the game plan the agent heat had because as soon as they had a to nelly going at half time i would have expected them to switch things up probably to a four three one maybe even a four four two input renault so up top with lead and then just chase down balls in transition in ways that they were infective in the first half just because they weren't gonna last ninety minutes and they didn't last ninety. They crashed it seventy minutes. So how do the rapid start on the ball. Who's winning in terms of the pressing game and presser traps and everything that's taking place. There is a question that i have and then how long can you sustain that. If they try to go all out and attack the he weakness that we saw minnesota do very effectively that we saw oscar do very effectively. I think the answer. Those questions will decide this game. That being said mark. Zillow team. That i do not have making the playoffs in the western conference this year. This is a team that i'm not sure. Has it a facto goal scorer in the same way. That austin has zulia dominguez in the same way that minnesota had a manual. Also there one key attacking pieces that you have that we both forgot to mention. Mark is doing tarot. Who as far as i know hasn't been injured. You just hasn't fit in with the style of play because he's not a very good press for the ball and he's the kind of striker folks who will his stats really really well. But not necessarily be a horse multiplier in terms of the attack with jean. Marc played in three games and he's only played forty nine minutes. And i worked at the backlog just now when you were speaking of the soccer dot com injury report. He hasn't been on there so interpret us relief in but discontent come on twenty minutes to go and do we see the quality if we do see him. He'll probably the most effective individual attacker individual score her. Either these teams and so the answer to those questions i think will decide the result which is based on where this team is from a talent standpoint. The style of play that they have and whether or not they'll be able to maintain that for ninety minutes mark at the rapids winning this game and this is a game that i would expect a playoff team to win at home. My prediction is that the rapids come back down to earth even living dangerously They've been They got a really good result this past week at but Like i said it was a little bit of dumb luck based on how well they finished The week before that it was kind of like more of the same So we're on a hot streak. But i don't know that we've earned it. I don't think any of their games as the rapids have played this season. So far have been rate I hope vans Take that with all due. Respect that i give it which is like. I don't think this. I think the team is probably better than they've shown But there's also some weak spots that have clearly been identified. Like gino rubio's goal which kind of highlighted fact that he doesn't score as many goals as we really need to. You know the problems in the first half with formation and and and spacing And defending are the kind of thing that like. You kinda got a not. Do you really need ninety minutes. Not moving the in the first half. So somehow i don't know why but i just feel like houston are really like a very odd collection of players. Who seem to work quite well together. And i don't think that looks really good for us. I think we lose this.

"Came. Our our analyst analysts is korean so we have a mix of almost you know a wide cross section of cultures than in the club. And i think they just gives us even more ideas from different perspectives and can only benefit the club in the long term. But you know. Each club has their their own criteria. i'd imagine. And i'm just happy that i'm in a club that you know is is accepting and bring to to go outside the norm out school to look for You know to be inclusive and also to have a different perspective. And i think as we the compensation continues i think. Hopefully this'll be Something that you know more and more clubs at I can't speak for other clubs. I don't know what their coaching staff is. Like or what. Their criterias are but I'm i'm just thinking to myself that you know the more we discuss it the more we we'll be open for nine years and different perspectives and hopefully will be more emphasis. Thank you very much for that. Will the Last question on. Thank you very much for your time. You're really busy this time of year. On what does success look like for you as a coach. And what does success look like for the club in twenty twenty one. The big goal is always to get this cup than analysts cup but there are numerous milestones. You has to you know your immune response is yet to check in to get there and this is just the beginning of nosso. Success with the team would look like no one surpass where we went last year bitches playoffs and wants to get to the play offs. The you know have the mindset that we'd know the rethink year. We know that we have the talent to be here now. It's about you know focusing on on moving where we were last year But of course we have to get there right and then once you get there. We go into that space. But you know. I think emily is on everybody's mind your And internally we know we have we can deliver that haitian and growing as we go and You know we have to have a bit of luck as well So that's i guess. Success look like for us but as far as My own success. I'm just concerned as much as i can Because the roads to success you know it's a long road and if it comes up pretty quickly then you know you gotta recognize what you've got to repeat it and to stay there so for me just learn and grow every single day and You know put one foot in front of the other and One day Diligent and disciplined hopefully successful in terms of very good to hear. We'll the thank you very much for your time. Good luck with the rest of preseason looking forward to watching you coach. The team starting on april seventeenth. Thank you. I appreciate it. And we're back holding the highline with rabbi in read. My name is matt pollard. Listeners this coming saturday. At dick's sporting goods park the colorado rapids will be hosting forever orange. The houston dynamo. We are currently four thirty four through the colorado rapids. Twenty twenty one season. They find themselves in sixth in the western conference. Now they have seven points from four games. Played two wins one loss and one draw in a neutral goal differential and their record at home is one. Oh and one houston dynamo. Meanwhile are in eleventh in the western conference. They have five points from or games played. They have one win one loss and two draws and also a zero goal differential the record on the road. This season wins one loss. And one draw mark. Houston's interesting team tab ramos is still their head coach. They've gone through a little. Bit of a roster retool in a way that. I'm not sure it's actually going to be effective because houston hasn't been spending a lot of money. They are one of the teams in. Mls is partially up for sale. So who knows what that means. They made a couple really subtle moves. I don't think you are. I thought a whole lot of in terms of moving the needle and now i think maybe we need to retract certainly mark. I'm thinking that maybe they're not going to be last in the western conference this year. They're mostly playing four three right now. They still have rodriguez. Obviously there too big. Dvd's from last year have been sold to. They've rut light of memory. Gez at times tyler. Passer now eight graduate from the mls champi from the us l. Championship do mls. They have maxium routine longtime mls Veteran journeyman who scores bangers occasionally makes really really bad. he's very similar to diego. Rubio marquees a false nine. He is very very pesky. He is very very physical. You will press the heck out of you occasionally scores a fantastical and then also messes up a very very easy opportunity. And fafa is the other winger option that they have formerly of the philadelphia union. And then they're back. Backlines also been retooled mark. They have tim parker. Who's come over. From new york. Red bulls do decent outside backs in zurich valentine and lundquist than a bit of a rotating cast next to tim parker defensively minor figueroa longtime vendors boniek garcia longtime houston dynamo. Great has actually moved back. At times from the midfield into centreback martin's continues to be a scrappy team. They've got a couple impressive results. they don't have a whole lot of firepower. In terms expected goals going forward. And i'm still not quite sure. What makes this team. What i know is there not as garbage. I thought they were and they've made a couple moves. That i think makes them not a trap game but certainly They they are to be concerned about especially given what this team was able you last year against the rapids in a one. One draw that required laws boubacar snoring on a set piece in the sixth or seventh minute of second half stoppage time. Mark your thoughts on afar. What could expect from this game and whether or not the dynamo are gonna come to come to hold it down. This is This is Castaway fc. there are so many players on this team that other teens gave up on. You got joe corona who was given up on You've got derek jones who has given up on You've got maxine routinely who was given up on puppy co czar valentin. Tim parker made her figueroa. All these guys. I could listen to teams that gave up on them. But it's a long list. I mean every other team in the league basically said at the end of last year. Like your not your spare parts right at best your bench piece for me and we don't need you anymore. I think tim parker who probably start for most teams in the league even though he's a little beyond his years i don't think any of the other guys. I named start or a single team in major league soccer you've also got boniek garcia. Who still comes in at centerback. Who's one of their kind of like a final veterans and memo rodriguez who is You know one of their longstanding kind of veteran players has been with them for a few years and kind of was the big link if you went back to The era when they had a lot of attacking wide the forward power in to the tune of alberta lease and renault kyoto. So memo was kind of the guy who tied those two guys together now. Memo's ask kind of shoulder the load all by himself. If you've watched his team like i have the last couple of weeks. Maxie routinely seems a bit ageless. I mean he's been. He's been really talented. He's been playing quite well. Which is kinda surprising. I would think that for guy who's been cast off or guy on the wrong side of thirty And who has a history as striker in. Mls of being a shoot. First ask questions later. Never shared the volcanic guy. They're doing pretty well you know. That's that's i think. The bulk of them I like there's two other cast-offs on this team that didn't play last week but could come off the bench. Christiane ramirez and reo lassiter ramirez cast off by l. afc and minnesota Reo lasser galaxy player. So it's.

"In the season on the other thing that will say mark is the rain got really messy to the point where it wasn't really fun for the fans the second home game with fans back in over a year mark things. Big thing i think is that we haven minnesota fourth l. I don't feel good about that. Because i feel bad for minnesota fans. I think that might be something to reflect upon. Which is we still haven't really be any good teams. you know. we didn't play very well against dallas. And i'm not so sure. They're shaping up as a good team this year. I've watched dallas a bunch. I feel like every time. I'm tuning in and it's the right time for me to watch a saturday afternoon match dallas on tune them in and i'm really unimpressed. With them. So the way we played against that makes me kind of feel bad The only team that we've played so far that i've been really impressed with is austin. They lost the other night to sporting kansas city but they went in to the blue hill and they gave it to a mini really came at them and they were on top or a good seventy minutes until alex ring committed. What was his first red card in. Mls history so anyways. Now i'm just rambling about the rest of the league but I would like to see us vita good team Houston is a maybe surprising team. But i don't know that at the end of the season we're gonna say he's a good team. We'll we'll see But two weeks from now it's al. Afc i think that's our first real test. So i have yet to really know what the heck the rapids are this year because we haven't really played any teams. That impressed me. This is something i wrote about in a backpass. Awhile ago for the subject so many big things from you. This is still a team. I'd say going back to the vancouver game and then especially it was illustrated in the game against austin. This is a team that i think is going to live and die effort in how they deal with being pressed in possession. And how do they defeat them. Do they beat themselves in terms of how well they possess the ball or does the opponent beat them in terms of how well they rest the rapids. Because that's clearly. That's what austin came out to do and it was very effective in the second half vancouver tried to end the rapids dealt with it. Better the rapids. I'd say the whole of the ninety minutes mark dealt with it. Okay maybe not as well as against vancouver certainly better but those opening twenty minutes were almost as bad against minnesota as those twenty minutes a hell were against austin of you weeks ago and so. I think that's going to decide the team and as i wrote an article. Her last were on soccer. I think that comes down to robin frazier. Making sure that his team is set up to show who they are and exploring that article which means by that what the subtle messaging in there and what it also needs to become for the rapids to be successful and then i guess the last thing that will say mark is again. This game was streamed for the first time in the robin frazier air up of the colorado rapids all of denver. Watch the game it. All the alabama watching non nationally televised colorado rapids gain. And it was a really really exciting match. The even of just one person stream link on twitter was like okay. I'll check in and see what happens. And if they stayed through the whole of it that person is now potentially going to be a little bit more interested in the rapids than they were last week. At that makes me happy has signaled block my altitude. But we're we're not getting anywhere until until twenty twenty two that listeners. There's been an interview that we've been sitting on for a couple of weeks. Various reasons that are mostly my fault. In terms of time. Management on the podcast. You're gonna play this now. This is a reason conversation that i had with wool. The harris lucas casaus on one of the new rapids press officers. Thank you very much for setting up a. I should point out folks. This conversation happened prior to the mass shooting in boulder prior to the news that broke regarding the george floyd murder trial any of the other social justice day talking points that have taken place in the last couple months. This conversation happened to pre season. We do briefly touch on. I think racial justice or racial equality and opportunity. But we don't touch a lot of the other big social issues. I asked about his time down with colorado springs. Switchback what he's going to bring to the rapids in terms of attacking ideas and then of course mark some really really fun. Og conversations about soccer in the nineties from time. Playing with fox's and marcelo bobo so without further ado year is that conversation. Will what have been your initial impressions of the players. And no robin fraser Their good overall. Obviously you know from the us up into two different working environment workloads. A little bit different but You know everybody here is is Has helped me to acclimate to the culture. In the in the in the workflow and It's been it's been great so far As far as the team is concerned. I think the people are on the team or quality. People on everybody's bought into what we're trying to use as a team in what robbins performed as objectives and You know just to keep working on how we wanna play and And defining fine tuning things as the weeks. Stick down to the fetish food. I know you can't win malysz cup in preseason but i have to imagine your feeling very positive given the early results that you've had in the two scrimmages and then the friendly against sporting kansas city on the weekend right. I mean the first two games were you know Or good Source games courtroom and and phoenix Showed us a couple of things that we needed to work on. And then the immigrants Sporting kansas city gave us pushed us In terms of them being a high caliber teens face this year and It showed a highlight in a lot of things that we were on improve as we know most towards the Led to hear you played for the colorado foxes in addition to having two stints with the rapids as a player. Every time i hear from robin or marcelo balboa talk about their time playing for the fox's they've got some fun memories and some crazy ones given where american soccer was in the mid nineteen ninety s. What do you remember about playing for the colorado foxes track saying in the middle of a check That was interesting But the atmosphere that was created. We have a lot of fans on onuma comment. It was but he got somewhere in between two to four thousand fans. It's made for atmospheres so you know in commerce city so i just limited dot check and in the fan but a really really cool people you know on I did in the one year. I did represent the fosters after the. Fox's you spent three years with the rapids where other than one year you were in new england where some of your best years in terms of goals and assists as a striker in. Mls what made you so successful as a player here and are there any lessons from that. You'll be able to apply to the team now. As a coach. I always had a hunger for scoring goals. Always wanted to be around. You know the boxing and finished. That's what i saw in the game and I was fortunate teams. That had people that did a lot of hard work to get the service in the areas in you know in the penalty area where i had my the most fun you know and And but putting the ball in the net manipulated here chrysantus known wondering and adrian paz on the other And obviously a couple of different midfielders coming through the middle of the park which chuck defenders and took the focus off myself and as the court had other belt is and we're we're in a combined with each other and score quite a quite a number of.

"We are bad things so in the first half It's funny response. Of course i'm good at talk about the first half as the that thing. But i don't think i'm going to say what most people would expect me to say. I think most people are going to talk about the specifics of the defending on both of the two goals that the rapid succeeded in the first half. I actually wasn't appalled. The defensive efforts in those situations but a thing i noticed i watched the first half much more closely than i watched the second. The second just seemed a little bit kind of like chaos Who wants it more. You know I definitely felt you know to your point about He fight hashtag keep fighting. There was because of the statistical oddity of the of how low the chance was that the rapids actually would have won that game on the expected goals. I definitely thought of the quote of pablo mastroeni will lose to the human spirit every day of the week. Yes that'll you lose the human spirit right there was a sense of like they just wheeled themself to win you know but back of the bad thing for me. There was something. I watched very closely in the first half was how the rapids play defensive. Where they set up they play defense really strangely. And if you go back and you watch it especially in the first twenty five minutes. Which is where those i do. Goals came from. They played and this is to be on brand for the name of the podcast very highlight. They played a very very high line. So when when we talk about high line. I don't know if everyone even knows what that means. A high line typically means that the the two lines really one of them is the line of confrontation. Which is where are your or most defenders going to attack and pick up the ball and the second line That we're talking about. An island is the defensive line which means whereas the defense gonna sedan so that any any forwards on the opposing team if they stood behind them are offsides right. If you stand like halfway back in your final third. That's a low line or what is awesome referred to in soccer terms low block the rapids are playing a really really high line with their back. Four and if you go back and you look at how they played in the first twenty minutes. And i wasn't sure what the plan was. Now's the felt like. They didn't play a particular early confrontational front to or front three meaning. They were really combat like ten players. Were kind of like very tight to each other in the middle and the advantage of that is you denied the midfields in the able to do a whole lot. The downside is a ball over. The top is a disaster. And that's exactly what happened on that second goal they put a ball over. The top defense was really high up And they were absolutely shrek. Danny wilson didn't do himself any favors by stepping into the attack and putting himself and mistiming and putting himself in a terrible place. But i found that all really perplexing the only thought i had asked why robin fraser would do it. And why actually hypothetically might have worked not is if you play a high line and you confront and you attack and you press in the midfield very aggressively in the first twenty minutes. You take the opponent out of the game a little bit. You tire them out a little bit and you trade on what the rapids are good at. Which is the rapids. Historically have been a more fifteen their opponents at home at altitude. And so you try and find advantages where you can either that i could imagine. Is that frazier was pressing in the first twenty minutes and playing a high line because he wanted to run the other guys ragged early so that late in the game rapid good avenue advantage. It's possible that my read is completely spot on and if so you know the rapids. Late goals in the second half. Were all completely up plan. He you know. He said well twiddling his fingers. Right like like that. Robin frazier's crazy like a fox that he was doing that. I don't know. I think that's a very felicitous. Read of what actually happened. What i really think happened was they tactically. Got it wrong for the first twenty minutes. They played Just really bad defensive. Setup wasn't pressing appropriately in the right places that gave Minnesota too many opportunities in transition and we were lucky to get out of there with three points by matt. What's your bad thing while it start with. Unicef injury of robin frazier said after the game. That was just a bruise and something going to have to look over so you know. He injured it. He tried to play on it. Maybe re injured in the play where he turned the ball over. It led to the second goal. So i would hope that he got back into the locker room and then one of the physios immediately got that on ice to deal with the swelling. But that's potentially concern. The midfields didn't look particularly good with him mark worthwhile at some point in the next couple of weeks. If we get a few more data points of coal bassett in the midfield of having that conversation. Because you know it's been nominally bassett most commonly that number ten role when the rapids are in a four three three or four to three one and they do different things. I think it's a really. It is an over simplified and frankly lazy narrative or conclusion. Drop in this lame to say nominally in the midfield the rapids were down to nil. So he had a negative to plus minus. If i'm using a stat and then go homes in the rapids. Were plus three in our or cold. Acid is better veal is veteran. He is a force multiplier in terms of what they're doing. Different players in the team looks a little bit different with both of them in there. I think to your point mark some of the other issues. We're going we're going on. That led to the rapid beaten down. Two nil at that point. Were nominally subbed out. Were happening a little bit further back in the fields. And i find it kinda weird that you know the rapids come in. They get a two year loan designated player. I've reported in the past. He's only guy who had a guarantee compensation at the start of last year over a million dollars and the rapids get a twenty nine year old. Emily veteran not anybody who they think is super elite. Overall decent piece in michael barr house. They get him for an international roster slot which is nothing compared to what they're playing either of those players. Or what cole. Bassett with the interim transfer right now and. He's immediately on seated him at the right wing. -sition while nominally can still be useful. There i still think he's at his best or what he does. Best individually as a player is get on the ball have on him in in a very novel who who am i thinking of Ina very neymar esque way creates faced by handing around that player in the uses that space in that time going forward to create opportunities. Any can't really do that as well. In midfield given the diego rubio. Whoever's the center forward position is tracking back which inherently briggs another player. There's just more people around him where out wide he's only dealing with usually one fullback or maybe a full a wingback and a centreback. If the opponent is playing a five-man miss a five-man back. So i have some concerns. Tacticly about how he's being used. That's not necessarily a statement that he's a bad player so much as just that things are different with him in there. That may not be as efficient for him individually but better for the team at a whole relative to what ov- acid is doing. And that's something that i'm really curious. cautiously pessimistic about going forward.

"The rapids. Complete become back to get all three points in the eighty. Second minute ho bassett with a really great run runs afoul outside. Or i'd say right at the boundary for the final third and then jack price. With and danny wilson header. The scottish salmon rises up like a salmon out of the water jumping over a damn mark. Heads the ball over and the rapids get out with all three points mark. What was your good thing from. This past saturday's victory over the A remarkable finishing. I think would be an understatement of a way to look at this game. The rapids expected goals in this game. You guys know. I'm going to like breakout with the advanced. Metrics really minor artery so american soccer analysis version as we talked about in the last of show. Asa and mls use different. Uh sets of metrics for how they calculate nut goals plus which. Mls doesn't have yet but expected goals. The rapids expected goals in this game. Was one point four nine right. They scored three goals one. My phone's not bad. That really does often results than anywhere between one and three goals. But if you're going to get three goals on one point four nine expected goals. It means you are -verting you are hitting those difficult difficult shots. The shot that kellyn acosta hit to score had only goal probability of oil one out now remember. Expected goals doesn't take into account the fact that it was a volley. The expected goals only cares. About where the shot was hit from that volley the kellyn acosta hit after the corner. Kick in the head. Tennis was ridiculous fat. I mean that was just an unexpected kind of outnumber. The cole bassett goal by comparison was the highest expected goals. shot of the night But it only was highly expected because the the goalkeeper for minnesota spilled it right. If he didn't if he doesn't drop that all embassador it up You know nothing. Nothing happens there and violent. Danny wilson goal was extremely unusual in the sense that he came in from pretty far out for header and it had a probability of point. Zero five Making it a really unlikely goal to go in You know is not going to be that way. Every week In general if you play out in entire season you should regress to the mean in terms of you should be pretty close. Unexpected goals goals but the difference matt between teams in the elite of mls and teams. That are not that good Or our average or below average tends to be whether you finish at a better rate than anybody would expect it if you guys have been longtime listeners of holding the highlight podcast. You heard me on this rant. Many many time. We're still early in the season. We're still talking about kind of like you know being a little bit lucky or not being lucky like you know kellen costs a cost to take that shot a dozen times. He doesn't finish in at least half of you know he's he's just not likely to Incapacitate probably finishes that almost every time. So you know like that. Is i think really really important thing to to kind of think about this. Now is your good thing. The comeback we finally saw hashtag keep fighting under the robin fraser era. I think we've seen that certainly last year in terms of the trepidation off the field in terms of on long stretches mark. But you know we talked about this with the came against austin where you know the rapids give one goal of the second goal in quick succession and then it snowballs in their chasing the game. And they're not able to regather their composure actually address the theme was actually a problem and then go forth and actually use something this was this was a performance that pablo mastroeni would have said like. Yeah i said one or two things at halftime. The guy's really got another halftime. I knew we were gonna come out. I thought we get a draw. Happy we got win in every. That's something that honestly for me. Mark has been kind of missing from this year. I remember a few conversations. I had last year going down the stretch for this might have been prior to the cove outbreak and it was ju- jonathan lewis after. He had a good couple of running games. And i was asking him like what he thought. Like the key like one thing to focus on in terms of the team trying to make the playoffs and he looked and he said you know to be honest we just have to want it and then apply ourselves based on that zairean. Maybe i misinterpreted what he said. But it's like you mean. The team has metality problem. You mean they don't want it or they're not applying themselves in that. Maybe i misread it. Obviously than the covert outbreak happened. But we've seen this team give up game you've seen them give up. Goals in the slouch head slapped. And then they don't fight for the full ninety minutes or try to get back in it games against ourselves games against superior opposition games in which the initial game plan in the first half dozen. Go well and finally hashtag keep fighting. We arrive and i really hope that this is a this is an inflection point. This is a turning point in terms of this team. Being able to figure things out as the game goes along because it wasn't just a move that they made at halftime or something. That robin fraser said you know to give them a wakeup call or anything happened. When hilda's came in. So i'd say that my markle bassett comes in and he changed the game. We can have a new wants conversation. About how the midfield looks different. Whether it's bassett in there and the shape and everything with kosta costume with jack price verses eunice nominally and everything but clearly you know. Nominally wasn't himself. After he took that initial injury in that ultimately led to the second goal bassett comes on maybe with a little bit to prove maybe a chip on a shoulder. because he hasn't been starting hasn't really played well up to this point and the team recommit. Suppressing they work really really hard and robinson said after the game i was a little late getting into the locker room. And everything i had a conversation with the coaches and everything by the time he got into the locker room guys. Were already getting on each other. Jack price was already. You know yelling at everybody. I have to assume that william yarbrough was yelling at people like this was. This was a group that we police themselves that that re police themselves held each other accountable and then followed through on that given how the first half ended and what happened at halftime and so i'm incredibly pleased. Finally there was the game that we could point to tangible evidence of that zero point. Mark maybe about the finishing being a little more. I would argue. Danny wilson to this point prior team has had enough chances on corners. Probably should have had a goal of this. Want so you know we look at in a vacuum. Know a a single shooting opportunity and saying oh. That's only five percent chance of going in. The fact is mark. How many shots you know. How many headers. Danny wilson got on at this point and eventually those five percent six percent three percent are gonna add up to a total of one point zero x g and you would expect one of those less than seven percent opportunities to actually go in so i would say that it had been coming her danny wilson over the course of the season. I'm really glad that he got one. The scottish salmon as jack price was referring to him. And i guess the other thing that i would say mark is san vines. Looks really really good again. you know. Health great e second goal. Just like i said last week. If you told me that you know prior last game he'd be dealing with a hamstring injury. To where maybe he was ninety minutes fit. Maybe he wasn't sharp. I didn't see any of that game and after his debut. Vancouver you know robin frazier said you know. He has some decent moments a little bit of work on the fitness side. He's okay defensively. We need c. Sharp in terms of the attacking component to his game and we saw that in helping him create the goal for bassett albeit. it was across. It was supposed to go to diego rubio for a tap in on the back post. I'm not going to hold that. Against sam vines given i care about the result more than i do the performance at this point but looking forward to seeing that improve mark what.

Yeah i know but that's going to twenty five years to know. I know that's when that's when they started killing the cannibal akin killing and cannibalizing people. So they start what they were doing it. I guess for twenty five years. But i think they're robbing people start having kids and then i think that it ramped up and you know what i mean so fucking who knows but the following day all the twenty seven men. They had their limbs cut off. They had their testicles castrated. They cut off their fucking balls. Why not right like it's gotta yeah got to give him a little bit of a taste of their own medicine.

"Rest today. I just had an accent It's funny ever going to end or we just gonna keep doing dad jokes for fucking funny all right. Hopefully this is the last time we have this problem. If the audio sounds not what. We're used to strange podcast. Chromebook should all be thrown at the fucking window and set on fire and billy was supposed to be at today but miscommunication doing skype episode. Not so bad. We don't use skype fox or whatever these same thing. Yeah so this will be fun. This is a fun one. We're going to get into a fucking terry. This is about your people. You goddamn scottish assholes. Terry's got the fun fact to for later. Did he told me he gave you one. So it's on this one all right. Well this is going to be a fun. One interesting fucking weird shit. I didn't hear about this stuff until someone was of posting about it that we will get into it but this subject has to relate to why the wes craven inspired to make the movie hills have is. This is also inspired movies like wrong. Turn and stuff like that. So that's awesome s. so we'll get into it. Alexander saudi bean was said to be the head of a forty five some people say forty eight member clan in scotland th century some people say fifteenth century that mermaid people say different things. Because we'll get into it. I'm going to tell the story in. Forbade him and stuff like that. I put this could be nothing but british propaganda against scottish people so they can call them. Savages everything we talk about just propaganda half of it anyway but this one especially but there is some truth to it. Maybe so there is some truth. Maybe so this guy was the head of scottish clan and the sixteenth century that murdered and cannibalized people in the span of twenty five years. Is that the sec sec. The scottish clan where they came from five particularly gruesome. Hollywood blockbuster films have featured characters as hannibal lecter otherwise known by descriptive names as hannibal the cannibal if the legend is believed however when compare with the exploits of mr saudi beans so they are even took inspiration from fucking hannibal so this is literally led into a bunch of movies inspired a bunch of movies. Little known little is known for certain about his early life over. Saudi bean is believed to have been born in east lothian yen In the late fifteenth century. And was a tanner by trade beings. Yeah he ted hides. I'm going to mispronounce shit. So fuck off scottish people. Tanner like you're not talking about people. Are you talking about houses right. No i think that wasn't i don't know what a tanner is you might have to. Google thought tanner was like they like fucking hides animal hides. I don't talk and that's kind of cooling in a quick kick. Look it up but so this later. Latter part of his life is literally better documented following his relocation across to our air shah and his marriage so they don't really know what his beginning of his life wise they kind of just the documents or whatever because this was was it. Or you're right. The job of tanner involves making leather from the hides of animals. So animal rights. Activists need not to apply. That's funny so like there is little documentation as early light. There's a little documentation about this whole story but it was actually put into the eighteenth century. Almost cry magazine editor cry magazine. It wasn't a magazine leaflet. Some shit and they talked about this dude. And this is where the base of the information go so the newly wed mr and mrs sanni being set up their home at benin cave and i think what was her name. Names like black margaret or some shit and his wife was supposed to be a witch in shit. Yeah she was supposed to be swayed by his charismatic attitude and like black magic margaret calling her black mark. No now it's like yeah. Black magic yes. Supposedly anything to do with black means bad so so. They were newlyweds where they got married. Or even if they did they're probably he just probably took her and then said your mind now so you're stronger so they set up home at the benin cave by the bella trod in the bell entry. Whatever fuck era shy. Scotland the benin cave bannon a cave. Whatever was scary at a scary home to say the least with tunnels penetrating the solid rock and extending for more than a mile in length. In addition the accommodations featured loss of lots of sideway passages. Were the young couple could explore and convert this over the next five twenty five years to accommodate a growing family grew. Yes so fucking shit. The cave's entrance was flooded by several hundred meters twice a day at high tide. So that's why the fuck would you buy your choice if you look as long as like. We're always have a lot of buckets lying around like we're good his like those. Don't get carpet either. Brooms in that mickey mouse thing all the brooms or magical and they fucking pick up pails of water and it can't be talking about anything. That's that's joyful earful anymore. Because it's now cancelled cancel culture. I saw a clip about say this. But it's like when ben affleck jean-sal bob and he's like their fictional characters fictional characters when they talk about the internet and shaped was wrong so lacking a trade because motherfucker didn't have no job it was saudis plan. His wife on the proceeds of robbery. He wanted to rob his mother support his wife. Let's fucking garage. Well he needs the support. They need food. His wife was like the front line of that robbery. She's like are you come back or not a forty four right here. Grab a shovel like east. Supposed to be a crazy fuck but there's also theories and stuff like that that his wife is justice fucked up as he was and that's why they got along so well usually what happens. I can't imagine somebody would go out of their way to like especially if you like the other person knew about the shit you were doing like. There's no way that person can be like way not fucked up and be okay paul bernardo and karla homolka right and you got along fine. They fucking girls together. Bear on inclined to we will eventually get into that in stranger. Podcast i would love to dive into that story savitsky movies about it. But barring bonnie and clyde is dope to show just quickly check out mr highs new album bonnie and hide the guy interviewed a couple months ago but yeah he's put on a new album of his wife and it's pretty dope v. Like or horror course wraps so so. It's proved to be a simple enough matter to ambush travelers on a lonely narrow road that connects the village of the area.
