Out With The Old - SolarWinds Smoking Gun, Signal Influx of WhatsApp Users, Male Chastity Cage
"It's time for security now the show we cover your security online your privacy. How things work out bad. It's getting how good it's getting all that stuff with this guy right here. Live long and prosper steve gibson. I got put the thumb outright. That's the key bomb out can't do do i have a show for today. What's the topic This well the title is with the old which was inspired after i got back into spin. Right sixes source code and realized how much crap was in there to deal with that the things that we were having to deal with back in the nineteen eighties and nineties at the beginning of the pc era. And so i. It was just going to be kind of like you know. I've just mentioned it. But i just think our listeners will really find that interesting. Old-timers will be going on. I remember when dos had a thirty three and a half megabyte partition size limit. Believe it or not and and you know younger viewers are gonna be like what so anyway. We've got so much talk about. We have critical updates for fire. Fox and all of the chromium based browsers and a potentially unwelcome but reversible. Change coming to fire fox We're going to look at an another new tactic. Being employed by the ransomware gangs or at least one of them an update on ransomware profitability. A bogus seeming announcement from intel. The which was made yesterday during their cas announcement of the eleventh gen. core processors. I i well. I did dig in to see if there is anything to it and bow. Oh i gotta be left with no question about how i feel and we have the i use on this. Podcast of the term tele dildo onyx. Tell donna deal. Get it right until donald bill tell anybody knows ask that we have some residual solar wins news the formation of a security screw up crisis management group news of the inevitable attacks on zych sell users the mass exodus from what's app following their plans to force all meta data sharing for users of their platform at quick sifi note about the expanse and then as i said inspired by the amazing amount of old code. I have rediscovered inside spin right. I'm gonna take our listeners back to the roaring eighties with a look. At how far we've come from dos. Three point three. So oh and we do have a picture of the week for the ages so good it came without caption cheeto.
Creating Antimatter: Matter's "Evil Twin"
"Jeff. i have a lot of questions about antimatter. But can you just start with regular mater. What is that. Yeah so a refresher for who don't remember regular matters abroad category for everything. So you're matter i'm matter. The studios matter the microphones. Yeah i get it matter and we matter. It's a nice thought. Yeah and as matter were all made of atoms. So you're bunch of adamson the shape of an emily corn. And i'm tabatha the shape of a jeff brumfield now for antimatter. I'm actually going to let another jeffrey. Who knows a lot more. Physics denied to answer this one. His name is jeffrey hengst. And he's a researcher at our house university in denmark. And to i. I think of it as kind of an evil twin of the stuff that makes up our everyday world intriguing. Go on it is it is. It's just this kind of opposite matter. It's like this muir to everything that's around us so antimatter. It's here right now yet. I mean it's a little more complicated than that but anti matters real stuff and it exists in our universe and actually before anyone ever even detected it. They predicted it because math. The equations of physics demanded in fact it was discovered that way by coming up with an equation that predicted his existence. Nobody was really looking for it. And i am not going to attempt to describe the fundamental equations of physics on this podcast. Because i don't really understand them But hank says the closest analogy. He's got for us mortals to think about. Is this math problem. What's the square root of four two very but there's a second solution negative to allocate right because negative negative to is four so the way you just went straight to two. That's exactly kind of what happened in physics like there were these equations and there was a positive set of solutions for particles and negative said and everyone was like the negative set. What does that even mean. That's nonsense but it turned out there. Worthies negative particles. They did exist in. They're called antimatter. Oh okay so there's this theoretical idea of antimatter kicking around for awhile. Which kind of explains what it is. But what is it exactly. Here's the thing it really is like opposite matter. Protons remember protons. Yeah their positively charged subatomic particles. They are anti. Protons are negatively charged electrons their negatively charged and their anti particles are positively charged. This is kind of amazing. It is kind of amazing. And here's the best part. It actually lives up to the sci-fi analogy so just go with your sifi brain and i get it emily. You're more of like colin firth. Pride and prejudice bbc. You know no shame in it. There isn't there isn't i've seen it probably more times than you have in my life. But what do you think happens when matter and antimatter Get together when they actually meet okay. If anti matters the evil twin the fight they do will. They do like in a jane austen novel. They do. Well you're not too far off. I'm going to let the actual experts explain it to you. And i have a tendency to cancel each other out a minute. Where's this under. Certain conditions when to identify articles of matter. Antimatter meet these. Are your experts. Jeff captain kirk and is that leonard nimoy as relationship. Yes total complete absolute annihilation. Spock it is. That's right and you're right. That's star trek season. One episode twenty-seven original track the best track. But here's the thing eveline. It's actually a hundred percent accurate or pretty close so the universe won't end if antimatter and matter meat. But the two particles do disappear in a flash of light. The anti-matter can't exist in the presence of matter. The science fiction stuff comes in these things really do annihilate each other if you get together okay. So i've covered a lot of physics over the years and this is pretty much the only case where the sci-fi and the reality match although i will say annihilation is actually a lot less sexy in real life it's really Just annoying to have to deal with something that you have to make that the universe is trying to destroy and every every every turning point be an antimatter physicist it it is. I mean he's literally been doing this since the ninety s and like he does get a little frustrated. All right you said earlier that antimatter. It's here in this universe but this universe is full of matter and i don't see any antimatter lurking around. So where is it if it's existing theory but it's hard to find in reality. I don't get this you know who else doesn't get it. Every physicist on earth this is one of the fundamental questions the equation say there should be as much antimatter matter but in practice. Antimatter is actually super hard. To find and hank says nobody knows why there aren't any good ideas about this. I mean physicists. Do see little bits of antimatter here. and there. In fact anti electrons for i discovered in cosmic rays coming from deep space way back in the nineteen thirties. And actually i've got another natural source of antimatter right here in the studio emily in this room. Yes ready yes this banana. What are you talking about this real episode. This is an episode about nothing and tomfoolery. Hold the banana to make sure it's real. I'll explain yes okay so obviously. The banana is not anti matter. But here's the thing about bananas. Bananas are full of potassium. Which is really good for you. But there's also a radioactive isotope potassium into banana called potassium forty. This is a naturally occurring. isotope So some porsche. The potassium in the banana is potassium. Forty now here's the thing. Potassium forty when it decays releases an electron but very very very very rarely it releases an anti electron. So if we just hold this banana and wait for for. How long are we waiting. Okay we'd have to seventy five minutes. We're at ten minute podcast. Geoff just sit here for seventy five minute. What i'm hearing is seven part series on antimatter. Emily kwan and a meditation silence. That's right no so. On average this entire banana will spit out. One anti-electron every seventy five minutes. I think this really makes the point. Well right like antimatter exists. It's not some parallel universe but one tiny anti trump for trillions of banana adams is like even. That's a pretty rare thing to have. Happened and jeffrey wants a lot more than that. That's why he's at this giant particle accelerator cernan switzerland. Okay so tell me what. He's up to their well. Hanks wants lots of anti electrons. And in this is key anti protons. Hey so it turns out the anti electrons are kind of easy. You can find other radioactive sources Besides bananas that can make a lot more of them and then the elevator makes anti protons. And here's the thing so you have to very carefully hang us to bring the anti protons in the anti electrons together we call it s- merge it's a smooz merge merge but even after that merge they still end up with a lot of antimatter just disappearing. Thirty million anti protons. That's converted two hundred thousand or so trapped. Anti protons of those will get twenty or thirty that actually make anti hyphen that we can use well. Willow anti-hydrogen is that what i just heard. Jeff what is that. Anti-hydrogen is just one anti electron orbiting one anti protons and it's the antimatter. Equivalent of the lightest element on earth. So that's regular hydrogen willing to go to all this trouble just to get a few atoms of anti-hydrogen but why go through all the trouble you know of making andy hydrogen okay. So here's the thing. He's hoping to get some clues from anti-hydrogen about matter antimatter and the thinking goes like this. Hydrogen is the lightest element in the universe and hydrogen is probably the thing we know best. We've been studying it forever. We really understand it. So by looking very very carefully at anti-hydrogen. He's hoping that they can learn more about what's going on with antimatter. And that's basically what he's doing he's using lasers all kinds of stuff to probe this anti-hydrogen to see how it behaves. Well has shed any light on where the rest of the antimatter is. Not yet not yet. And so far. Anti-hydrogen is behaving exactly as predicted by all those fundamental physics equations. And so far with the places that we've looked and to the precision with which we've looked they're the same and that's kind of a problem because they also say there should be much matters antimatter unless they can find some sort of deviation it may not be possible to figure out you know where the antimatter went. So we don't have any clues but that's okay because he's just
"sifi" Discussed on The Michael Berry Show
"Come on come on and finally he'll just go noodle and dad's dragging them out of there. That's what. That's what the Democrats are doing. You know. I'm sure it's not true but but just I don't know Sifi with me for a moment. What if the Chinese created the Wuhan Flower? Virus. Conflict the Chinese flu what if the Chinese created? And unleashed it. I know completely crazy. But what if they did? They brought the American economy to its knees. The damn near took out the president..
What 'Arrival' Gets Right — and Wrong — About Linguistics
"Jessica con was a teenager when she first learned that linguistics is a thing. She stumbled upon story of Your Life, a science fiction novella by Ted Chiang. It's all about linguist- trying to figure out how to communicate with well aliens I. Think it was actually probably the first time I heard about the field of linguistics. And then I started college the year I saw an introduction to linguistics curson signed up for it. These days Jessica's field linguist at McGill University in particular I work on. Syntax. Basically the way words combine to make sentences in a few years ago. She got an email to be a consultant on a movie, a movie that was coincidentally based on the exact novella she read as a teenager. I'm not trying to draw any connections that aren't there, but you read about linguistics for the first time in a book that became a movie that you became the the person they consulted with. It's amazing right? It's pretty wild I mean when I first got the email that asks me to work on this film I was really ready to push spam because it sounded very strange and then at some point I saw the story of your life and I wait a minute I haven't thought about that in years and then I responded That Film Twenty Sixteen Sifi hit a rival. So real quick. In case you haven't seen it. Here's the gist. This is Davy arrived. All of a sudden twelve spaceships land all over earth trouble saying. And we don't know why they're not doing anything after landing there. Still no signs of first contact or just the sitting there are at least and so governments around the world are panicking trying to figure out why are these alien spaceship sitting here and different teams are going into try to understand why they're here what they want. And we are following one of these spaceships that I think is somewhere in Wyoming and the. Amy Adams who is a linguist? Production. And her job is to decipher the alien language and figuring out what they want. So today in the show another installment of the Shortwave Science Movie Club what the movie arrival got wrong about linguistics what it got. and. Whether or not Field Linguists Jessica coon has actually communicated with aliens. Honestly it's a tossup. I mattie Safai you're listening to shortwave NPR's Daily Science podcast. So Jessica you were the linguist who consulted on the movie arrival. So give me a big picture sense of what that means like. What did they actually have you do? Yeah. So the first thing I did was I got to read drafts of the screenplay which was really fun because it's a very common thing to do and academia we read things and we give feedback on them but usually not this fund of a scale committee meeting ever exactly yeah. It was very funds so I got to read the screenplay and they especially wanted. Feedback on how linguistics and linguists were represented in the film. So there were lots of places where I gave feedback and they incorporated it into the film. There were other places where they would say, okay just, Kinda yes. Yes. Thanks for your help but really in the end linguists are not Hollywood's primary audience and we're not going to get everything right here and now linguists just get to join like all the other fields of people who get really annoyed when science misrepresented onscreen. So welcome to the club. Sorry, we're not GONNA change that. The movie makers also put Jessica through some exercises, basically giving her a whiteboard and asking her would you do if aliens showed up and those exercises actually informed one of the most famous scenes in the movie when the main character we spanks played by Amy Adams. Schools the guy in charge of the mission about the fundamentals of linguistics. He asks her for a list of vocab words. Essentially, the keywords she was planning on teaching the aliens, that day. Cavaliers responding. Lock. help you understand. So Amy. Adams walks over to the whiteboard and scribbles what is your purpose on earth? This is where you want to get to. The question. Okay. So first, we need to make sure that they understand what a questions. The nature of A. Request for information along with the response then. We need to clarify the difference between a specific you. And a collective you because we don't want to know why Joe Alien is here we want to know why they all landed. In purpose requires an understanding of intent we need to find out. Do they make conscious choices or is their motivation? So instinctive that they don't understand a why question at all and and biggest of all, we need to have enough vocabulary with them that we understand their answer. I love that scene Yes that is one of the great triumphs of of linguistics in the film. I mean this was. So this was one of the most interesting parts of the movie for me because I'm you know this idea of building a base for understanding of a new language is like really interesting and and like the first steps in trying to communicate, which is you know like your thing right? So but it's something that I think we. Just, don't think about into see it in kind of in practice was so fascinating and I'm glad to hear it was like pretty well done your eyes question Mark Yeah I. Think I. Think it was really well done. I. Mean I think one thing that is really neat about this movie and what makes it such? You know interesting and intellectual Sifi is. They're not just typical humanoid creatures. We don't already have some kind of magical universal translator in place, and so we have to figure out how how do they even communicate and will we be able to communicate with them given how advanced they are that they've made these spaceships have arrived on earth I, think it's safe to assume that they have some advanced form of. Communication and that that form of communication should have patterns in it that we could eventually decipher. But thinking about you know, is it audible or is it written or could creatures communicate with smells or we just have no idea what could be out there if it's audible is in a sound frequency that human

The US government is considering a TikTok ban
"TIKTOK has a history in Congress now. Josh Holly has basically been the main guy out to get to talk, but okay, so for the past year year and a half Josh Holly has had some hearings. He's invited to talk to testify, and then he's done these like wrestling style like hyper wheels on twitter, where he just like shows like an empty tick tock chair and he's like. Where are they and it's like we're guitar music album. Is Our personal information being made less secure by big tech, because of their partnerships with some of these questionable receive. At least. This has happened. We've been waiting all this kind of happened when Mike pompeo like randomly one night on Fox, news. It's like yeah. We're thinking about banning TIKTOK. And that's basically all he said, and then, of course, everyone's like what is happening, so the government can't really do a want to ban tiktok addy. Our colleague here on the policy dusted a wonderful story talking about all the ways that they could kind of get around. Banning them, but the one thing the government can do is banned other people in government from using. On their devices so. This week the House of A Josh Holly Bill that would ban federal employees from using Tiktok on their devices, and then just yesterday earlier this week. It made it through the Senate committee, so all it needs now is vote on the Senate floor to be approved signature and Tiktok. His banned from Federal Devices Military Tiktok is not a small community. No, it's huge. It's huge. It's huge I watch a lot of fighter jets land on aircraft carriers. Somebody took a very bad dad. TIKTOK I'll go. Is Very different from mine, so federal employees banned from using it. Is there any further motion like? Their moves right. You could like you can say it's a Chinese company. We don't want them like. We did it to Weiwei right, but we. We basically banned companies from buying equipment. How would you? How would you do that with Tiktok? We have this problem all the time. With like what regulator deals with tech, no one has any idea or they want a piece of it, and then they fight over it, and it's a nightmare, so that's part of the problem. We don't have in federal agency that really organizes around Blake Tech Regulation at all, so it's not like you can just go knocking on the. The door. It'd be like excuse me. Chairman Simon's please ban. Tiktok you can't do that so in the same way that the FCC jeep pie can be like no money goes to while away and then here's some money to dig it up and get it out of your system like we don't have the infrastructure for that and I think that's primarily the biggest problem here I mean. There's a couple of things that you could do with like foreign, Investment Sifi's. Sifi's stuff. It's all incredibly Wonky, but it's an incredibly difficult, if not impossible to just ban an APP, and that would have to do with like talking to apple and Google and APP stores and having you know what I mean having to com- completely direct what how they operate in some way. We just got done with a huge discussion about how apple has monopoly on after being on the iphone Google doesn't on Android, but they might may as well for. For most intensive purposes, especially here in the US, so if they can strong-arm apple and Google just pulling them off the APP store. That like it's pretty close I mean they're like Donald. Trump is like one iphone tariffs right away right? I mean but like I. Don't know if anyone is gonNA. Pull it off now, Casey. One thing that strikes me is even on my extremely lame Dad Tiktok I see so many creator saying is getting banned following instagram. It's a trend all over the place, and obviously trump and sort of the republican side of the the world are like Tiktok Chinese. We hate it. trumpet is I, think particularly pissed because of the rally narrative run TIKTOK that's Russell singles last week. Also delivers a lot of information to people in young voters in particular in Opaque Algorithm feed like that. It feels like yours zone has bubbled up beyond just a bunch of noise for you. Yeah, I mean like this is a Ben Thompson. Point which is that China has been in an information war with the United States for twenty years, and Americans have just pretended. It doesn't exist right like the point makes over, and over again is China started this fight? A social networks are not allowed to operate in China, and so the fact that. Albert Mickley based feed that is totally opaque. That is operating insider. Reporters should raise at least some national security concerns right like the kind of. Threat you worry about. Is You know what if the Communist Party decides that? It just wants to push a lot of pro-trump propaganda in the run-up to the election. You know it just because it would. It would so some chaos, and it would benefit them regardless of how likely you think that is to happen. The fact is that it could happen and. Should the the country have some sort of response to that? How should think about that? And you can take different views on it but I do think the thinking about what Tiktok is and how it could be used has been unsophisticated because as with every social product when it first got started. We all look at it and we think this is fun. This is a toy. Nothing bad could ever come from teenagers doing dances. And fast forward to the two thousand sixteen election has no one ever watched footloose I mean come on yeah. Look what happened. What state will allow dancing in that town? Lot of people think happy story I. Don't think that that is a movie about how town was ruined through dancing.
The Horned Helm
"Hey welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert Lamb and Joe. McCormick and today. We're doing the horned helm. This is going to be one of our essentially one of our invention themed episodes, but I decided. You know we really need to come back to armor, and the best place to start with armor is really the helmet I think the helmet is one of these wonderful things to consider because on the one hand, there is the more sort of combat, centric and medieval. And even fantasy idea of a Hillman Sifi. Fantastic with the concept, but at a very basic level, I feel like we all have some experience wearing a helmet taking this bit of artificial exoskeleton, slipping it over our own skull, and then enjoying its protection. Do you remember the scene in cone heads? Where it? It is revealed that Dan. Ackroyd Cohen Head Bell Dr Enjoys driving a motorcycle, but he's not a fan of helmet laws. No I. Don't remember this. Does he have a? A weird helmet or he just he can't wear human humans. I would imagine that's the source of his frustration. Because seems seems like bell. Dr Is actually normally pretty much rule follower, but but yeah he doesn't like the helmets, and I think it's probably because he has to get one custom made man. I haven't seen that in forever, but I do remember it had a really fun. Stop Motion Monster towards the end. Yes, yes. Bell Dr Scott to fight one with his Gulf skills. It also has a great line that for some reason is is just used for all occasions around our house, which is your phone is too young. Well, you know I. Don't remember if they wore helmets in that at all the more like space centric cone heads, but I feel like there was some sort of a horned crown that one of the more yeah I think. That's right so one of the we're. We're going to be discussing helmets in general, but but one thing that we're also going to discuss. Here is the idea of the horned helm a helmet with horns on it. It's it's an ancient motif in human civilization, and it ties into some earliest ceremonial practices. Practices and models of imaginative thinking. There's also do something so elegant about the idea thing that may be worn upon the head, and in doing so transforms the individual from a mere human into something, symbolically different a hybrid of human embiid. He's channeling the archaic chaotic gods of the Hunt. Oh Yeah I mean it's very therapy. It's what you see in those ancient cave paintings that so exciting when you start to see the human and the animal forms join together, suggesting fantastical thinking it's clearly there in the horned helmet as well. And and and so when you see these ancient motifs, one example that I was looking at before we came in here today. Was Robert Familiar with the the Sutton? Hoo Helmet? Oh, yes, yes, the sudden new helmet I. Had Papa Picture of it, but I this is one of these that I remember from an early age seeing perhaps on the cover of National Geographic, but it was certainly featured in some sort of Historical Book that I had access to his a kid. Yeah, it's just spectacularly creepy with these hollow is the way the mustaches rendered on the the plate of the face covering. I think it also had leather component when it was actually worn, but it's this decorated Anglo. Saxon helmet from I think it was from the seventh century. was buried in this in this ship burial somewhere in east. Anglia and I've actually seen this up close. And there are replicas of it that are really cool, because they reproduce the artwork that would have been originally visible on the sides, and although it's got all these panels over it, basically, it's a helmet covered with like comic strips, and in all the little panels there are scenes depicted in. In one of them shows these figures will like human shaped figures with horns, apparently wearing some kind of horned helmet. Oh, also evidence of Hornet helmets on a helmet. Yes, wonderful, yes, but it doesn't necessarily show the the characters wearing horned helmets say going into battle it appears to have more kind of a ritual religious significance surrounding the horns. Yes, in in this seems to be basically underlying the earliest versions of of this you know horned helmets go back thousands of years as far back as a twelfth century. See we see this in Cyprus Bronze Age Europe. and. The generally the idea is that yeah, this probably has its origins in in against symbolic tinkling thinking and ritual, and the idea that you're transforming. You're becoming something else. Which of course has a role in combat as well in a row and intimidation sort of role in the basic? behavior of making yourself look larger than you are. But, but then there's also this. Imaginative. Side to it there is this ritual aspect of mill, melting, man, and beast,
Summer Movies 2020: What to Stream, What's Delayed
"Pandemic has totally thrown summer movie season for a loop. Lots of movies are going straight to streaming. Judd apoptosis and our Shirley's the roads and our welfare, but which streaming movies are really worth your time. And what will the pandemic mean for the film industry, and are we ever actually going to see tenant? The Big Budget Christopher Nolan Sci fi flick scheduled to come out in August. Will we ever see that on the big screen where it is meant to be seen? Well the answer to that question may actually be never. We just found out. That film has been delayed indefinitely, but there's still a lot more to discuss and here to talk us through it. Is Eliana Dr Men? She writes about movies and pop culture and Feminism for time Eliana. Hi, hi, how's it going good? How are you? Good holding up. So I think my first question just has to be like. Is there a summer blockbuster season this year? What happened? Yeah, I feel like saying. There's no summer blockbuster. Season is a little road to the movies that have come out on Vod vod meaning video demand, because a lot of stuff is just going straight to streaming racked. Yes, the things that are going straight to streaming which there have been some good things. But this certainly has not had the momentous feel of a usual summer where I convince my closest friends to go spend a ridiculous money to go see a movie in amax because it's summer and that's what you do. That is not happening. Hollywood has been a little circumspect about that. Keep moving movies that they insist have to count in theaters with good reason for some of 'em a movie like ten it would be much less fun to watch for the first time at home, but they keep sort of delaying it by two week increments, and delaying delaying delaying and I suspect that those delays will go into twenty twenty want, but we'll see. Yet kind of reminds me of early on in pandemic times it was probably like late maybe mid late February, when I found out that the the new James Bond movie was being delayed. Because that was supposed to come out in April. And they decided they moved it to like November. But I remember it was one of the first moment sitting at work when I saw the news where I was like. Oh. This pandemic is real. Yeah that was at the time I remember. Having discussions internally at time and just thinking personally. It's crazy that they're big to November. Why would they be November now? They look like geniuses because they sort of as this has continued to happen. All of these movies are rushing to find different dates, and I've sort of compared. You know finding the right movie release date to picking perfect wedding date. You don't want overlap with another big release that would. Not all the guests are going to come. And you also want to find a weekend when you know. A lot of people are free, so holiday weekends are always big Christmas thanksgiving Labor Day that sort of thing, so there's been just this total crush of movies. Where right now if things go the way that they are currently planned? We're just going to have a million movies released in November and December I. Don't think that that will actually happen, but they sort of James Bond beat everyone to the punch by claiming that date early. Right naming you know here. We are coming up on August. August like who knows what November's even GonNa. Look like yeah, exactly so I do think that most of those movies will probably move to twenty twenty one as well who knows, but it's sort of worst on such an ad hoc basis with all of this right now that I think the studios are also concerned and confused of course, so yeah, obviously you can't tell the future, but I do wonder like. Do you have a sense? You know you say? Probably? A million movies are gonNA drop in November December early. That's kind of the planet this point. is they're then going to be just like a huge drop off because of the stuff that should have been produced over the course of this year. That wasn't able to be because of the pandemic. I don't think we'll actually see that. Drop off until twenty twenty two because a lot of big movies that were supposed to come out this year like I remember another big kind of moment of this pandemic was real is when fast and furious nine moved from a spring of twenty, trying to spring of two thousand, twenty one, which also it doesn't the one that's taking place on Mars or something I think that the rumor is that they. I think that the actual poll of this. Is that this character Han? Who is very unjustly killed off a few movies ago, Mac so there's a whole justice for Han. A whole separate on my fast furious. Good to know. Just in case you're looking for. You on the list. So a lot of those movies have waited a full year. The top gun movie was delayed till Christmas. I think actually, but there are few other movies that have been delay pushed it back a full year. Yeah, push back a full year, so I think we will still get a crowded summer twenty twenty. One I think that we're really going to see the impact. In Twenty, twenty two where the delays in filming movies are are actually going to sort of manifest and that will be very strange. That's really interesting. So you say you don't want to do a disservice to the movies that have come out this summer that have gone straight to streaming services. What do you think are some the standouts that people shouldn't miss so I? Think that a few things have come out that have been great and entertaining, one big standout and profit by saying a lot of these movies are going to be on Netflix. Because Netflix was just more prepared for this than anybody else. WHO Like match? A four site that a pandemic was going to happen, but just by virtue of they drop a new movie every week at this point and write them have to be good. I think. The five bloods, which is Spike Lee movie that dropped on that flicks on June twelfth, and is h front runner in the very weird Oscar season. We're GONNA. Have a mom so far is definitely a standout. I think that that's one that is well worth people's time especially because there are going to be so few kind of prestige, Oscar movies that I think come out the series. Well that if you want to turn Oscar Susan that that is the way to go, okay so that one stands out I mean Hamilton. I watched as soon as dropped and APPS as. Everyone else I talked to did and I think they did a really good job of translating that to screen. Obviously, there's some reconsideration of Hamilton right now and rate. How good of a job it does! reckoning with the racism of the time. But I do think that unlike a lot of sort of problematic properties that were dealing with the summer lamelo Miranda has sort of owned up in participated in that conversations would say watch it with a grain of salt, and then go right you an internet deep dive. Researcher Slavery. And Google Hamilton slavery and just set aside a few hours for that So I think that stands out, I also really loved Palm Springs I'll too I just saw over the weekend, and I thought it was delightful. It felt like. Again try not to shade net flicks too much, but palm springs is one of the first movies released in quarantine that felt like an actual movie to me. and this came on Hulu. It came out on Hulu. It was the biggest purchase out of Sundance ever how it was supposed to be released in theaters. It was very much treated as an indie movie, but a big indie movie randy's hamburger than most people know about these days right and lonely island Andy. Sandberg's group produced it There's some Hollywood power behind it, but it felt like a fully finished movie with. With, the quirks of actual writers, directors incorporated in there and character development whereas I dunno some of the net flicks movies can feel a little bit empty to me like there was a concept and not a lot of follow through So this palm springs stood out to me. Is One a good rom com, which are hard to come by these days in to like. It felt like I would go to theater and pay money to see this movie. Yeah, totally so those are those are sort of a few that have come out so far that definitely stand out to me. As being people's time one that I've been hearing a lot about speaking of net flicks. is the old guard. I haven't watched it yet. What do you recommend it? So I do I mean? The old guard is sorta falls into that category of doesn't feel quite like a complete would be released in theaters film. And I don't. I can put my finger quite on. Why except that? I think that you know the premise of the movie is that these immortal beings are basically you know. superheroes that are constantly saving the world. I would watch that. Yeah, it's definitely entertaining, and like it's Shirley stare on shortly surrounds Great Gina Prince would who directed love and basketball won't have the greatest films of all time. Directed this and I think she does a good job. I do wish that these immortal beings were a little more interesting like if they've lived for thousands of if they had lived for thousands of years, I wish they had. More interesting quirks more things to say about the state of the world. That's a fair critique. Nothing can be perfect. It's definitely a diverted way to spend a couple of hours, and you know well worth people's time if they are looking for bad action, movies, and and kind of not even bad like. This is terrible action movie, but just like not A. Junk food. Yes, junk food. That is the perfect word for it which I mean like. Maybe the bar is really low now. Anyway. Right because it's like if I'm not leaving my house. If I got nothing to do then why not eat some junk food? You know exactly and I think that the I think that Hollywood is scared that we're going to get so used to junk food that we're not going to want to spend a little extra money on not junk food. After this is all over and that will sort of accepts. This is movies now. The netflix version of movies that feels a little bad for me and lacking in a little substance is just going to be the state of the world, and we're not going to spend the extra money to for example, see Palm Springs in theaters or see you know the Irishman in theaters vs on Netflix. To use another sort of direct networks parallel right so. What you're saying, is that essentially like if we are getting used to a lower quality than than what is our incentive to WanNa like go to the theater and spend a bunch of money. An let alone the fact that we're also like sitting. You know theoretically at least shoulder to shoulder with strangers, which is not a thing that people are super interested in doing right now during a pandemic. What do you think is sort of like the future of the movie theater industry? Like are they just doomed? Yeah, it's really hard. I mean as someone who watches a lot of movies, both in my personal life, and for work I cannot wait to get back to the movie theater. Going experience and I do think that there is that sort of feeling that once it is safe. I would happily walk several miles to go. Sit in a big theater next to some co workers or friends. Friends and watch a movie like Ted I. Wait for that to happen I am not comfortable doing right now. Though I do think that it's going to be a question of timing, and how long movie theaters can survive financially until moment where we do feel comfortable all coming back and I think that there's this fantasy that a movie like tenant or a movie like move on. It's just GonNa stuff movie theaters right off the Bat and there's going to be a moment where we all decide. Yes, this is the weekend where it's safe again. where I'm excited about going to the movies and I WANNA. Go sit next to a bunch of strangers and have them. You know spill popcorn on me. I don't think that that I. think that. That's sort of this illusive fantasy I. Don't think that that's going to be the case I. Think it's going to be a very slow trickle. I don't think people are chomping at the bit to go to the movie theaters I do think that that is why studios have been holding back the. Most expensive contents for kind of lack of a better categorization. Is because they don't want to give us Moulana streaming at home, and then have us come to expect okay I'll just wait for Milan's come onstream. I think that they want to create the incentive to go to the movie theater because it is so essential to their business. Surviving I just think that you know that means we might have many more months of not so great content. So, you're saying that it's not only like AMC theaters who need movie theaters to exist, but also Hollywood itself. Yes Hollywood definitely need movie theater to exist I mean the reason that you can make a movie like tenant for hundreds of millions of dollars is because you make. Hundreds of millions of dollars back by selling movie theater tickets. There's just no way that they can make that on Vod. It's not possible, so we'll see how they strategize it going forward, but I think sort of takeaway from this is that Netflix was already fighting it into the Hollywood. Business an Hollywood was not prepared for it, and this is just accelerating the process. So you've mentioned tenant a couple times, this is the newest is it's Sifi right from Christopher Nolan. Yes, it's a new Christopher Nolan movie. The reason I keep mentioning Tenet is because Christopher Nolan. Or Warner brothers have styled tenant as sort of the movie that is going to save the summer blockbuster season. They keep talking about is the first big movie that's going to open the movie. That's going to draw people back to theaters movie. That's GonNa save movie theaters the movie that's going to save the concept of summer blockbuster the movie that's GonNa. Make us feel better again and. I mean that sounds great i. does sound great I mean in fairness them. It's a good movie to pick to pin that on. Because Christopher Nolan is one of if not the only director left who can drop a totally original film that has nothing to do with comic book series. A book is not marble is not DC, NI, and, but this is still one of those like big loud movies. That's like perfect for a movie like a theater going experience that right, yes, yeah heart of the appeal of a movie like ten is that you see it with a big group of people rate, and then will gasp at the same reveal exactly like some of my favorite summer. Summer movie moments are the moments where you know. Something crazy happens in everybody screams. Everybody laughs I think of I. Guess is two summers ago. When the last mission impossible became out and spoiler alert for the first half hour of the mission impossible movie, there's a moment where they are jumping out of an airplane. A character gets struck by lightning and funny in this amass the lost bear market. And as well as the greatest movie memories ever had because it was just this collaborative woman just happened. And those are the best. That's amazing. That's so good well, even though we have just learned that the ten release has been delayed indefinitely, I hope cautiously optimistic that that will. That will have that again someday soon, ish. I hope so too. And in the meantime there are things to watch at home They might not be the things that we were excited about several months ago. but there are things to watch at home, and after this kind of summer movie season is over frankly studios graft figure out what to do with their Oscar contents, and I would not be surprised if a lot of them just get released straight to streaming so that they can qualify for the Oscars this year. Wow, the Oscars, which have officially been postponed right, yes, the Oscars have officially been postponed, and they've also changed their rules, so that movies that are released to streaming can qualify which is a. Huge concession on their part Isis County will change the back afterwards, but it's been a big fight in Hollywood as to whether streaming movies can count for the Oscars in hopes of saving the movie theater, going experience, and so now streaming movies will qualify and I think that's going to change the calculus for a lot of studios that aren't necessarily trying to make big money movies that they are trying to win awards.

Duchess Meghan Releases Statement Supporting Friends After British Tabloid’s “Vicious" Attempt to Expose Them
"Week. We also saw the Duchess of Sussex released a statement supporting five of her close friends. Friends after the Mayland Sundays, in her words, vicious attempts to expose them. It was an eye witness statements legal document that was filed at the High Court here in London, on July ninth have a copy of it here where the Duchess accuses the Mail on Sunday of trying to create a circus with a friends real lives now these of course are the five friends gave interviews to people magazine in early twenty nine teen in her defense after a barrage, all particularly unpleasant commentary and obstacles in says an areas of the precision press. Megan says an has said already in this case in previous statements that she had no idea that the article was happening until it actually hit newsstands. But the mail, on Sunday, half these five friends names because they have been entered into. The case confidentially by the Duchess of Sussex's is legal team by request of associated newspapers. The argument here of course is the man on Sunday saying that they should be in the public domain, and the Duchess of Sussex's legal team is saying that these are private citizens. Young mums who do not need to be part of this circus. The paper is clearly trying to create. Making writes in the statement. She accuses the publisher of trying to expose the friends in the public domain for no reason other than Click Bates and commercial gain. She goes on to warn that the action is vicious poses a threat to their emotional and mental wellbeing. Of course it will be some time before this actually goes to trial among Cadogan that releasing the name so early in the process when they could potentially act as witnesses important witnesses. In this case, is not going to do any help for either party. But of course, the argument from the Sussex side is that the male really just want to create headlines? Ounce of this other than at sort of do this for any benefits of the case for either side. Megan's already repeatedly stated and ego responses to the publisher. They're being three. That, she knew nothing. If these five friends is cooperation with people, magazine, and effectively, it doesn't affect the grounds of which cases based on which is copyright infringement, an invasion of privacy Megan goes on to say these five women not on trial, nor am I the publisher. If the Mail on Sundays, the one on trial it is the publisher that acting unlawfully, and is attempting to evade accountability to create a circus and distract from the point of this case that the Mail on Sunday unlawfully published my private latter. It's. Very powerful statement I think what's been really interesting about this case is the clearly. The Duchess is not afraid to hide anything. We've actually learned a lot of private information In case it must be quite difficult to sort of be going through these issues with her father again so publicly, and there is no doubt about it that when this does go to trial, it will be a circus whether people want to avoid. That's unfortunately. That is the sort of what we're building up to here. But you know I've spoken to sources close to the Duchess and their legal team, and they're clearly very confident in the purchase. They're taking to this and you know they. They believe they're standing on a very good case a moment as I said earlier. The Mail on Sunday does deny wanting to actually print the names of the five friends, tellingly in their statement that was obtained by C. News. It says to set the record straight and Maryland. Sunday had absolutely no intention of publishing the identities of the five friends this weekend. quite telling that it really specifies this week and. It goes on to say you know this is why. We told the Duchess's lawyer last week that the question of that confidentiality should be properly considered by the courts. Sources actually told me that it was Megan's lawyers doubt sent that they will put on notice by the Mail on Sunday's lawyers, just on Mondays. This is just a few days. Before Megan's witness statement at basically telling them that the males confidential filings should be properly reportable by the media. That's their words. They warned that if Megan's legal team did not apply to the core by July, the ninth, then they would simply assumed the names of the women were no longer confidential, so this situations actually quite contradictory to the statement released by then, and it gives an glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes in a case like this, we all sort of in somewhat unprecedented Tarik trae. with a case against the tabloid by member, the Royal Family because. Sifi! We haven't even gone to trial yet. And it's already unveiled quite a lot, and will no doubt be a difficult situation for the Sussex is to go through. They've. Already well into the next chapter. And this will of course be a heavy burden of for them to deal with a as it. Looks to continue for some months CONSI. See this going to trial until. Late in the year or early next year and
Mike Zagorsek of SoundHound
"And maybe just pin little bit of a picture for the audience who haven't known you for twenty years like I have about some of the things you've done, so you would sapient you're you're you're working and user experience and some of those things and then? A Couple you went to the agency world, you worked at apple you worked at square. Thank at one point. Before coming down so if you think about some of the things that you did before sound down. What were some of the formative pieces? Thought were really interesting that you sort when you came to sound and you're like. Oh, here's something I can apply here. Perspective skill something like that. Yeah I reflect on that a lot and. UNRELATED TO APPLE IF YOU'VE listened to Steve. Jobs is I know the jobs get of quote, but. The fact that he said it is secondary to the idea which was you can to better understand where you are today, you can only connect the dots in reverse, and you can say well. How did one decision to another lead to another in how this connecting those dots help me understand it in so doing that in the benefit of this conversation I've always been. been fascinated about how humans interact with technology, what does that relationship between tools and technology and the reciprocal nature of the world that we live it as which is the result of tools and technology so I? I Love sci-fi was always watching Star Trek Star Wars you name it good bad Sifi! Always just take it all in, and because really interested in how? A world that had technology was itself a reflection on society, and I think Especially now with something like voice, that's playing itself out so. In the early days I didn't understand that as well and I don't think the the world of of technology was was. Quite at the sci-fi level yet, just getting a website you know going back twenty years. Getting a website was cool, but it. It wasn't the most exciting thing and. But I was always interested in digital after leaving Sapien I went on the agency side, but it was always very comfortable. Helping clients build websites. And digital advertising. I made the move to Apple. In two thousand seven have the day I joined with the day the iphone launched. And that was a pretty chaotic time. A very different company than it is now, and I spent five years building APPLE DOT COM and A lot of digital communication email worldwide. And but this idea of people in technology it I mean obviously being apple. You learn a lot about that. In Steve himself talks about you know liberal, liberal arts and technology merging so it's not a new concept. After apple I wanted to get a little bit closer. How companies were built so I left to go motion. Recruited by former apple colleague. And for those sites leap motion a real following. It was It was touch lists, but it was gesture based. It was actually hand and finger tracking to really high fidelity. and I learned what it needs to be. An interesting involved will start up. That's its own. PODCAST in and of itself. square for me was an opportunity to really build. A marketing practice within a more established company from scratch although that moving away from the leap motion environment where it was human computer warrant to Fintech. Realize I distance myself. From what I was passionate about so southbound with how to fight the voice platform. Is the culmination of my experience in large companies small companies. Immersed in. A world of Scifi or being more distant from it, and so it really is a combination of a lot of things. I think that's why for me. Personally I feel like we have a lot of momentum. So you Reverend Scifi. SCIFI fancy listed the voice about bad gas, not surprising being the industry, and so, what sei fide did you like to follow? Well I describe myself as a trekkie. I mean I'll. All of it and so that's. Most people. Who are inside I will have an affinity for. It's always a very safe. Safe Choice but but then as things started to diversify, really got into battle star. GALACTICA reboot and I really loved. The expanse is fan, although not everybody follows that in but when it comes to to star Trek I'm very agnostic. I love the old stuff and the new stuff than I know some of that's been poor polarizing, but it's always really just been. How does it does it help? Facilitate A world that allows us to to be more human I mean. That's always been been what Star Trek. Spin about so you can't ignore that and and be in the
When Car Companies Help In Times of Crisis
"Welcome to car stuff folks, thanks for tuning in I am. What of Your Host Ben? Bolan and I am Kurt Gerron and like many of us in the world today a Kurt and I are recording remotely from our separate bunkers tower. Good Pal, the Walter Jesse Pink Ben. Scott Benjamin couldn't make it today, but as well and sends his regards Kurt. I want to check in before we get started. How are you doing man? How how long have you been? In this lockdown stage, I guess about three three and a half weeks now they've been well the. Just hanging in there like many people out there. How about you been I've been you know I've been doing pretty well. Ev- actually have actually taken the habit of just getting out on the road just to get out of the house. You know I'm not really I don't really have a reason to go anywhere. I don't have because I'm stocked up on everything I could need, but I've always loved road trips I. Finally got a reliable vehicle before all this stuff went down, and so for anyone familiar with the Atlanta area, our fair metropolis, usually as terrible terrible traffic and I have been driving around to eighty five, which is an interstate that encircles. Atlanta I've just been driving around it and it's A. It's a great drive. Dude, because there's never any traffic now. Is it used to be notoriously busy and choked up and now you can just zoom on by. I would say I feel like we do have to point out if you're listening and you're in an area where you have been told that you cannot take any. Non Essential trips then. Please abide by that to the best of your ability. But I haven't been stopped by anybody. You know I haven't been like hot, rotting or red lining anywhere, but it's good to get out there in nature I mean I. Don't know if if you all have been going on any hikes or anything. Oh, yeah, it's been very important for me at least for my sanity to get out there and enjoy. Some of the spring weather which I love so much. But running in my neighborhood and Going on walks and just trying to stay away from those purpose built pass because I hear that people are all over those these days for some reason, oh, yeah, yeah, it's it's real strange think I think we're learning. Just how much of a toll cabin fever can take on people? But as many folks have said not just in our country, but abroad in Australia in Europe in in Asia every country that's dealing with his current covid. Nineteen pandemic has set this at some point. We're all in this together and this guy you and I thinking about some tremendously impressive acts, both in the current day, and in the past, so Kurt a little while ago off air, you and I were were just. Kicking around ideas, just shooting the breeze and we started talking about how a believer conversation started when when we were talking about how Tesla the electric car company run by Elon Musk had pledged to start building ventilators to help with hospitals that were in short supply and to help patients who needed these medical devices so that they could get over the hump. Hump of infection, which can be, you can be quite dangerous. but of of medical ventilator is something that you wouldn't really expect a car company to build even one. That's a little bit more Sifi like Elon Musk. You know because he's known for his crazy Sifi ideas. Yeah, unless rewind several weeks ago when this thing was ramping up in the United States. Elon Musk came out on twitter and said the corona virus. Panic is dumb. That kind of rubs people the wrong way Perhaps what he was saying was that. Panic isn't necessarily a productive reaction. So what he is decided to do is to use some of the minds. He has working for him at Tesla to create ventilators. Spills can use because there's a high likelihood that has this virus progresses that there will be a need for ventilators throughout the country He has also been buying machines from other places where he. He can, he's been buying blessing truths of type than later known as the be Pat Yup machine and doctors in New York at Mount Sinai have been able to come up with a way to turn these into fully-fledged ventilators save put out a fifteen page instruction manual, and now other hospitals can use that manual took convert these types of machines over a two. Full on ventilators as well so all of this. Problem Solving and ingenuity is really exciting. In a time when there's not a lot of excitement to be had.

It's like this mirror to everything that's around us so antimatter. It's here right now. Yeah I mean it's a little more complicated than that but anti matters real stuff and it exists in our universe and actually before anyone ever even detected it. They predicted it because math. The equations of physics demanded in fact was discovered that way. You know by coming up with a an equation that predicted existence. But nobody was really looking forward and I am not going to attempt to describe the fundamental equations physics on this podcast because I don't really understand them But Hank says the closest analogy. He's got for US mortals to think about. Is this math problem. What's the square root of four two very good? But there's a second solution negative to Aoki because negative negative to four so the way you just went straight to. That's exactly kind of what happened in physics like there were these equations and there was a positive set of solutions for particles and negative side and everyone was like the negative set. What does that even mean? That's nonsense but it turned out there. Were these negative particles. They did exist and they're called antimatter. Oh okay so there's this theoretical idea of antimatter kicking around for awhile. Which kind of explains what it is. But what is it exactly? Here's the thing. It really is opposite matters. So protons do you remember protons. Yeah their positively charged subatomic particles. They are anti. Protons are negatively charged electrons their charged and their anti particles are positively charged. Hey this is kind of amazing. It is kind of amazing. And here's the best part actually lives up to the SCIFI analogy. So just go with your vestigial Sifi brain and I get it emily. You're more of like Colin Firth. Pride and prejudice. Bbc D. You know no shame in it. There isn't there isn't I've seen it probably more times than you have in my life but what do you think happens when matter? Antimatter get when they actually meet okay. If antimatter is the evil twin they fight they dual. They do lake in Jane austen novel. They do well. You're not too far off. I'm going to let the actual experts explain it to you. My her Antimatter tendency to. Cancel each other out. Where's this under certain conditions when to identify articles of matter? Antimatter meet these experts. Jeff Captain Kirk and is that Leonard Nimoy as relationship. Yes total complete absolute annihilation as stock. It is that's right and you're right that Star Trek season one episode twenty seven original track the best track. But here's the thing heavily. It's actually a hundred percent accurate or close. The Universe won't end if antimatter and matter meat. But the two particles disappear in a flash of light. The anti-matter can't exist in the presence of matter. That's where the science fiction stuff comes in. These things really do annihilate each other if you get them together okay. So I've covered a lot of physics over the years and this is pretty much the only case where the sci-fi and the reality match although I will say annihilation is actually a lot less sexy in real life. It's really just annoying to have to deal with something that you have to make and that the universe is trying to destroy and every every every turning point that's hard to be an antimatter physicist I it is. I mean he's literally been doing this since the ninety s and like he does get a little frustrated. All right you said earlier that antimatter. It's here in this universe but this universe is full of matter. I don't see any antimatter lurking around. So where is it if it's exists in theory but it's hard to find in reality. I don't get this you know who else doesn't get it. Every physicist on earth like this is one of the fundamental questions the equation say there should be as much anti matters. There's matter but in practice. Antimatter is actually super hard to find and Hank says nobody knows why there aren't any good ideas about this. I mean physicist. Ducey little. Bits of antimatter here and there. In fact anti electrons I discovered in cosmic rays coming from deep space way back in the nineteen thirties. And actually I've got another natural source of antimatter. Right here in the studio emily in this room. Yes ready yes. Data this banana. What are you talking about? Is this a real episode? This is an episode. About nothing and Tomfoolery. Mom Can I hold the banana to make sure it's real Alex Lane? Yes okay so obviously. The banana is not anti. It's it's matter but here's the thing about bananas. Bananas are full of Potassium. Which is really good for you. But there's also a radioactive isotope of potassium into banana. Call Potassium forty. This is a naturally occurring isotope So some Porsche. The potassium in the banana is potassium. Forty now here's the thing. Potassium forty when it decays eight usually releases an electron but very very very very rarely it releases and anti-electron so if we just hold this banana
"A person could easily fill hours of airtime talking about bizarre mating habits of animals from the white spotted pufferfish that draws intricate patterns in the Sandy Ocean floor to attract a mate to the spotted hyena females. WHOSE PSEUDO PENIS which is sometimes larger than the males actual penis is also their birth canal note? Today we're going to focus on the latter two thirds of the process just station or incubation and firth even limiting the topic. There's still a lot. I won't don't get to like how certain reptiles determine the sex of their offspring with the exact temperature in their nests. The station period of animals animals is a matter of scale. The larger an animal is the longer it takes to make a new one despite the resources of the mother being large as well if all the dimensions Shinzo a given animal were doubled. That animal would now have eight times the fall you owing to the square cube rule and hence eight times the wheat of before four but the thickness of the umbilical cord through which all of the growth nutrients flow will only be four times as large so all else being equal it. It would take twice as long for the necessary nutrients to go through if you WANNA get super math nerdy about it and you're welcome to the volume and therefore wait of an animal is proportionate to the cube of the scale Cisco is proportionate to the cube root of the weight of the animal. I read it but I don't understand it. We can scale back on the maths a bit by looking at examples. Humans have station period forty weeks one week short of nine months while humans best friend has the station period of two months. For small animals like rabbits. The period is about one month and for mice about three weeks. The metal for shortest shortest station of a North American mammal goes to the possum which finishes pregnancy soup to nuts in under two weeks. This may have less to do with their size than the fact that their average life span is only about three years so replacements are needed constantly. Elephants are pregnant for a long time like really really long ninety five weeks in fact almost two years. This marathon baby building is one reason that female elephants elephants usually don't have more than four cavs in their whole lifetime. Who's got the time? A giraffe needs almost fifteen months to form. It's one hundred fifty pound founder. Sixty eight kilo baby which starts life off with a bang draft skipworth standing up so it is during air for babies to fall six feet or or two meters to the ground in the process of being worn there are exceptions to are easy to follow. Big babies means long pregnancy guidelines. Of course I one hundred injured and ten pound or fifty kilo. Hippo is ready to debut and only eight months even faster than a seven pound human baby. Black bears are pregnant for thirty weeks but they're cubs only weigh about one pound or half a kilo. One thing that this list of station periods can't take into account are pregnant pauses causes by which I mean pausing pregnancies. That's right some animals have the ability to say you know what now is not a super great time for let me to have babies. Let me just hold the embryo. And Its tracks and turn my uterus into Sifi stasis chamber while I wait for conditions to improve since it was discovered discovered in the eighteen fifties more than one hundred and thirty species of mammal have been found to have this ability. The pause called Dia pause conveniently can last anywhere between a couple of days and up to a year in most species. This happens when the embryo is still a tiny ball of less than one hundred cells. Does that has yet to attached to the uterus. Pausing pregnancy isn't the sole domain of any one class or family. It's found in certain kinds of bats bears Seals rodents deers and armadillos among others. More than a third of the species that take either during the station are found from the capital of strange nature. Australia of the twenty or so species of kangaroo and Wallaby combined there are only three that can't pas a pregnancy Mitzi in fact it's the Timbre Wallaby that can put embryos on hold for up to eleven months. There were few mechanisms at work here. Some animals most made right after giving birth. It's like a backup plan in case something happens to the newborn if nothing bad happens in. The newborn is nursing the physical taxation of lactation lactation stalls the understudy fetus once the extant offspring is weaned. The fetus begins developing again. The second way is to pause every pregnancy until the time is right usually to do with the weather for example minks mate around the start of March but put the embryos on pause until after the spring spring equinoxes when the days are getting longer in the northern hemisphere this ensures that the young are born in spring when food will be more plentiful than the temperatures more mild. Some are bitterest animals will pause pregnancies in times of drought hoping that the rain will come back to get plant life growing again. The TAMRA wallaby combines these two methods to ensure that the Joey is ready to leave the pouch in spring rather than the middle of a Hot Australian Summer Dia Pause was first identified in eighteen fifty. I four after hunters in Europe. Notice that pregnancy in Rodier seem to last a lot longer than in other types of deer since then scientists have been fascinated by this process. And it's helped us understand more about basic reproductive processes in all mammals but how the process worked at the molecular level is still a mystery mystery until recently there seemed to be no connection between which speech these use it in which didn't and there didn't seem to be a unifying mechanism for how the pregnancy was caused. Even the hormones controlling dia paws are different between Mammal groups researchers in Poland were able to pause embryos in a sheep a non dipoto species by transferring them into a mouse uterus and then back into the sheep with no apparent ill effects this indicates. It's the potential for Dia. Pause could lie in mammals including humans but I would still take my birth control pill you would. Experiments would die. Applause could do you for us is to improve our understanding of how to make and select healthy embryos for in vitro fertilization as well as to create better stem cells that could be used the target cancers the first stem cells ever isolated by scientists came from a mouse embryo in diapers whether or not the pregnancy. Let's see was paused. Once the baby or babies come out they need to eat and for mammal babies. That means milk. A mother's milk contains a concoction of nutrients France fats proteins and carbohydrates that are essential for a baby's development as well as a cocktail of protective factors to effectively supply the baby with immune hyun system until it can develop its own all mammals produce milk but they don't all produce the same milk to give you a baseline for comparison before I start start throwing out numbers cow. Milk is about three and a half percent protein and five percent carbs while human milk is about one percent protein and seven percent and carbs and both are about eight percent water. You won't find much water. In the milk of the hooded seal. Their milk is more than sixty percent. Fat Thatch more like a premium milkshake than milk. This high fat milk is crucial for the seal pups born into the freezing waters of the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. It's the PUPS also only nurse for about four days having been born on floating ice an environment that is both unstable and unreliable. So the seal Momma needs to pack a lot of energy dense fat into her milk. The pups consume over sixteen pounds or seven kilograms of milk every day. Their Body weight doubles in the first week of life. Conversely in the savannahs of Africa the Black Rhino has the skim milk going only about point the two percent fat they also nursed for almost two years which is only possible within milk given how many resources lactation demands

"Today we are speaking with mcgrane span. Who's the senior analyst? I believe a got a torrent matters pleasures. Mine How's it going Great these events were always pretty full on having Malta. It's zoom in. You cannot argue with that love the people everybody doing all sorts of things told you about. Hr what you guys are doing We should push from AIDS into Australia. Goes you've been around for a long time business. So what's the draw Australia. Australia's beautiful market lots of amazing people. And I think a AW. I've always held high opinion of Australians for sure but it's a great market a lot of good people and people like to trade and that's what we're all about opening up the financial the markets for everybody to be able to trade in excess of. What took you say buddy long? Well we always. We've always been interested in the Australian market. No doubt I suppose that regulatory and budgetary concerns. But we're here in Very happy by the pleasure to have you here. We look for to say what you put into the space. So tell me about the training. I mean you know you recently reporter digital assets into the space as well So what have you got for a crypto sample. I know you've got equities bonds commodity stocks all that sort of stuff full suite of of Package of Trion a lot of great margin project so I love the Great Magic Products Because Waste Traders Lot wrought. But what are you doing. The child asset spice so eternal Toro is a social trading network And there's over two thousand different assets that you can trade on and that's anything from currencies commodities et theakston indexes stocks And of course crypto so That's the main idea. Is that just to allow everybody to have that freedom and as as you'll notice it's a very user friendly platforms as soon as you download the APP or go to dot com. It'd be able to to just see how easy it is to open an account and opened a trade and to see and copy other other people and that's really for us. That's the foundation. Well that's the interesting thing about Ataur was can I mean those are the inventors. You possibly could be that social trading writing aspects. How does it work tell us about how that social trading following copying have that system works as a ranking competition? How does a whole will follow may work? Yeah so the best way to do is just to experience it right. You go costs try it out. Is that the way to think about it is. I can facebook for finance where everybody who opens an account automatically uploaded picture you can see their portfolio. What are what are they holding obviously in percentage terms the amount and if money but you can see what are they trading on when they opened a position when they close the position and their stats? Right you can see their stats and their risk score the wrist. Everybody's risk risks you over from one to ten. You can see how risky they are And then you can see their stats. How consistent they are basically a traitor? You can just allocate money to them. Say a thousand one dollars thousand dollars whatever you like And then that money will automatically mirror whatever they're doing in their portfolio. How does that work from the tribes perspective? I mean obviously take those out there. I mean I'm sure the students and you know probably falls in wall showing her they actually are. But how does it work for the try to benefit so first level If anybody wants to amass large following tomorrow they do need to show their real name DOC. It's really good to hear. And they do need to have a significant amount of capital from their own money in order to In order to rise up the ranks the as the system is called popular investor program. Okay where anybody who wants to a massive following is going through tears so you start out at the lower tier you can have Up to a certain amount of assets under management and then once we see that they are performing okay okay and that they're hearing to the community standard Then they can rate rise up the ranks in the top. The top tier is the elite traders. At that point they're already making a percentage of of the total assets under management so two percent on an annual basis are they can make directly as reward being. How's it worth a Torah and you'll just sir BICYC- money off? The transactions of the Bronco were broker. We have the spread fees. There's no Fees for opening an account or anything like that. It's it's just when you make a trade you're paying you're paying a spread commission on the trade and When your copy trading it's the same additional fees for copying anybody? It's just the system suspense is that does it go across the Bitcoin as well as it does to stocks cause if I tried US equities and other platforms on piling in on paying Out I'm not gonNA become quite expensive when it comes to scaling out to manage you're risking your position because you've got to have two or three different positions with two or three different sets of commission Thomas to the age of your introductions how does that work because justice spread or is the phase on trading certain markets like the US equity market for different depending. On what your trading obviously trying to make it as transparent it's possible we also introduced in some region the free stocks with Zero Commissions. And we've seen that just after we did that. Charles Schwab did the same thing wrong. We're we're cutting a trend in the market here but you can always go to the agency exactly what it is and then As far as if there is any kind of rollover or something like that you'll be able to see very clearly on the opposition itself Or even dividends or you know if you're if you're getting money for holding a physician you'll see it right there on the position it's always transparent. I look when it comes to back to talk about Australia and businesses doing now. It's a it's a global business now. It's huge but how many staff have you guys go around the world. I'm not entirely sure sure I know that are Australia. Is relatively new one of our our players our Soma he's been he's been in He Toro for years already in a very good a friend of mine and We send them over there and of course the managing director Robert is an amazing guy So I'm very confident that they'll be able to that'd be able to introduce And scale the region in the proper way to help more and more people Trade how long have you been in this four. I mean I've I've seen the ADS coming up some amazing using odds by the way well done. How long have you been getting off? They they know what they're doing. Absolutely nailed it okay. How long have you been driving? And how's it going. Traction was a new player in the saint. Obviously a lot of power a very strong brand I an. Hr is a new you concept to what we have currently in Australia. It doesn't exist in that sense. The following of people in that sense right neither copy traffic. So I've I've known has been around for a long time but not in a strong trading itself is relatively new. It's something that was born inside of e Touro Justice away of us. Listening to user feedback to the first implementation of property trading was actually a chatroom. O Our our customers came to us and said Hey I wanNA talk to other traders dip and you know that was like two thousand ten. Two thousand eleven tantrums were popular back then and we just put one right inside the platform and we saw people you know. Interacting with each other the next level was obviously you have people saying hey I just bought apple stock went up and people. Hey I wanted verify that is he telling the because everyone's obviously post moves haunt tried as plenty of exactly anybody can say anything to chat room right so At the at the moment we did that we built a separate website. The open book don't use for Tracking People's Trades AIDS and then you can see exactly what their trading their portfolio and their stats and everything like that and then obviously the next step in the evolution is. Hey that guy's doing really well will be him so. This copy trading is not something that was boring boardroom. Rather it's an evolution of some of social media India which is all around us and something that is step by step by step and then obviously two thousand fourteen. We put it together the open book and the platform and we put it all into one. Mobile trading was getting really popular then and we said okay single experience of Torah dot com or download the APP on Android or Apple. You'll get that same looking feel and you can log into the same account in multiple devices just makes it easier. It's handy to monitor your position to move stops all do it for my arbitrating super. Because you're good you're fine with you all the time that's right. It's dangerous dangerous man dealing with what you're saying I mean how's how's the uptake going in Australia. Sifi there is. There is a danger of over trading. No doubt for me you know. I'M GONNA be by the computer when I'm doing my. I'm always going to be checking the market cajal phone. See what the prices are doing and see what's moving. What's not Many things that I think that for everyday person. If you're if you're endangering over trading the best way to take care of it and the deal with that is diversification. You've got hundreds of different positions. It's okay if you tweak one or two of them every okay that's fine right. The problem with over trading is if you're all in on one thing then you're paying huge commissions and others your emotional. Yeah exactly but if you've got hundreds of different trades it's okay you can take your time. Say Okay I like that position the me add to it or let me see. I don't like that one subtract from it And then you don't. You're not in in that position of over trading
Best Nintendo Switch Games Of 2019
"Let's start it off with game of the year. Okay just to get the big the big. I guess it's not really an elephant in the room. I mean we talked about running for But Tom what were the nominees for the Nintendo game of the year for Nintendo Channel Game of the year. The nominees were three houses. pokemon sorting shield Luigi mentioned three supermarine maker to and the legend of Zelda Link's awakening. What a that's that's a pretty good year I party lineup to went back and looked at our lists from last year from twenty eighteen and it was really really good year right but like the the first party titles for is basically just poke them on smash pretty much and comparatively to xbox playstation? There's really really strong showing from Nintendo killed it. The three three of those were in our overall game of the year nominees as well whereas there were no there. There were no Playstation four or xbox one exclusives in our nominees for your overall essentially the middle of the switches life cycle than. It's pretty much kicking. But that's a that's a nice center point. We're in year three if the life cycle of this machine is more like the handheld like Dsm Gameboy. It'll be way longer. Yes the mid point is like in ten years or something. Yeah towards the last seven to ten years. That's when they sent out the garbage. And the Mario and Luigi Abby abby inside bouncers or what. We're going to tell people what one we're gonNA tell. Everyone went wine so we discussed extensively on a previous show Brian. I don't think you're yeah because I think you might have had a different opinion. What but I think most of US settled on? Fire emblem three houses. Probably being pick injury tunnel and and that is the one that won so gene has crown three houses as Nintendo game of the year and also won in people's choice awards for Nintendo switch game as Adema Adamus four percent of the vote choosing fire him. Because that's totally in tune with our community. I I think I mean honestly. LOSERS MANSION LINK'S AWAKENING POK MON monuments. And they're all really good game like if I score them they for me. They're all eight point five to nine point five range game and and then we also you know a couple we saw when we put out our nominations we saw a couple of people being worse. astral chain we only do five nine knees and I think if you asked her on the office probably probably astral train would be number six in that stray right it was Nintendo. Just had a really really good exclusive year. Even you know I didn't give it had huge glowing explosive review but like even though she's crafted world was fun. Game was a game this year. I think there's something like fourteen. Switch exclusive assist man crazy. Yeah I just I just talked about it and what happens when you don't support to systems at the same time this put it that way. I think that if you you look at or listen to NBC episodes from a year ago there was probably in the same way. We're looking at twenty twenty right now. There was hopefulness but also like a little bit of maybe be paranoia or skepticism. About how the year would roll out a year without like a big flagship. Three D Zelda or Big Three D Mario Game ultimately ultimately gave a lot of room to move around in for some of the slightly smaller. Ip's in their stable. And I'm pretty happy about that Firearms like not really my thing. But I think it's absolutely deserving to win link's awakening obviously from you as my favorite Nintendo exclusive deal but that's it's impossible with a separate fee from nostalgia. I'm feeling I mean the thing for me that I love about firearm limits. That Zach was such a can of like nick. He said. I'll check it out but I'm not gonNA play it much. And then he ended up completely getting lost in that game loving it and that just shows that firearm limbs taken another a step from being what we're really used to be this niche turn based strategy game to be something much much bigger and I think we'll see at the end of the. I think the sales are going to be really really impressive for that title. And I'm hopeful that this franchise will continue and continue to kind of experiment like this was a step in the right direction. Splitting the game into multiple copies apiece. That you had to buy like Pokemon was not a step in the right direction. Arise as Nice as it was to get that many. There's just so much in in three houses so you can play it again and get a different story. Yes Yeah I think like Zach story with this game is sort of symbolic of the larger story that's happening with a lot of people would switch You have lapsed gamers whereas you have new gamers and yet people that may never would have bought one of these things before are going in and connecting with these franchises for the first time. And that's really awesome and I think that was the hope with a game like Mario in rabbits to right there. That's a turn based strategy game and I think he was hoping that more people would pick it up. With the Mario Franchise sadly you know it didn't get quite that huge mainstream success and it was a really good game to it did pretty well. Yeah that's all that's I think that's the least for a while. Was the best selling third party. Switch which game yeah. Maybe we'll get a second one next year but I still want more you. RPG in that engine also shout out to Our best platformer of two thousand nine hundred supermarine maker to go away. Yes or that also won another major league best platformer should just be sponsored by Nintendo at this point that category brought to you by Nintendo. Because they are they kind of impossible to unseat in that carry despite some really good indie games coming out now in the platform of category. Still kind of own it to Super Mario Mario Maker is just ridiculous. Yeah the amount of stuff you can do with this. It was also cool that like just as we're having these conversations that game of the year to have an excuse to revisit that game and get the Master Sword which I did over the weekend so we should mention. Though the overall winner the overall winner was control and some lake and and friends MHM remedy. And I know this is a game that Janet really like Joe Championed and but our people's Choice Award was too straining which was a very divisive title here in the Office It was one of those games that I actually haven't been able to put that much time into it. They play like three hours and I did not get into even the me of that. Game is like dig it. It's Sifi animal. We'll crossing the chores and carrying around packages. I I like it. It's it's kind of Kooky but I I will admit that I can see a lot of people being put off by the game and in how repetitive it becomes after a while but like. I think it's really cool I forgot what the final tally was. Way over fifty. Thousand people voted for their Game of the year in the in the reader's choice awards and You know like Some Years Nintendo game will win both readers choice and our editorial Toyota pick across my arms but this year. You know the While we had multiple nominees fire MLB didn't quite make it into the into the top spot. It was I mean I think we knew a few months ago at least even probably halfway through the year that this was going to be really interesting year especially for game of the year stuff because the way it Kinda shook out was that there was a couple the front runners but then a bunch of games are also immensely popular and tied with a sort of third place voting area. The resident evil remake was very very very close. Yeah Yeah it was very close runner up and on. I think it's just there weren't very many stand out what masterpiece games sear like the last year like God of war in red dead came out in saint like that liberal college like fallen order was really good but it's also rough around the edges. Yeah performance issues issues and bugs and same with things awakening. Here's a good example. And obviously reviews are an individual's opinion but last year in twenty eighteen. We gave three tens and in two thousand nineteen we we and the years not done but having any right so that's I think a really good example bat said we gave like at least half a dozen. I think more board games and nine five right like this. This was exactly what you said right. It was a really good year of just create games really good games across the board but nothing that really just blew the roof off and stood out to everyone right right. Yeah when I tweeted out my favorite games this year listen I was kind of sort of taken aback at the variety. not only in genre but Like some of these games were incredibly tiny. Little Indie Games and others were massive. Triple A.. Action platforming games and stuff like that and it's really cool to see that there and then some VR games in there too. It's really cool to see just a mix of all that stuff this year. It'll be interesting next year. You know like like the kind of game of the year award. Darlings like Nintendo's Mario Zelda team were absent as rockstar naughty dog and stuff so it's GonNa be interesting next year with the new consuls and new Halo Halo in last of us. And see what we get from Nintendo with new councils. You always see Teams are sort of like figuring stuff out and there's that sort of like those hiccups that happened around on launch but intended is going to be really in the thick of solidifying. The switch is one of the best new platforms ever made. But we're going to get like their flagship title next year for as we know right now is animal Oh crossing which has historically never really one game of the year sort of like death straining and then it's pretty divisive games a Strand Strand on it is it is the national strategy gale and I love it. Ah Love Animals crossings. All that hurt me. That hurt me to here. I do want to give one shot out to our best strategy of winter which is sleigh. The spire fire which I could tell something was up the spot and get to say one of my favorite games.
Death Stranding - From Kojima Productions
"On today's episode. We're discussing discussing the video game death stranding which is the latest title from famed game producer. Hideo Kojima and for the playstation four. It released earlier here this month and joining me now is neither who's written about. The game is played the game and he has lots of thoughts on it. Mike thank you for being here. Sure Brett It's good to see in the podcast studio radio. It's been a long time yet has all right. Let's start with The game because it looks absolutely bizarre. I think one of the images that sticks out for a lot of people when they hear the name. Death Stranding is Norman Reedus. A lot of people know from the walking dead holding a baby with no shirt on. Looks Very Weird. What is happening? Yeah it's There's been a lot of interesting thoughts about this game. Since it got teased about three and a half years ago I think it was three but it may have been at the video game awards event I forget I wasn't. I don't think I was there so I saw online anyway. So they've been working on a game. They'd wanted to do a spin. Off of the Silent Hill franchise franchise but that fell through and Kajima left Konami and started his own company. And this is the bank the project they were working working on. So it's a Sifi. I probably a little more than near future but beyond near future And it's another. What are those a post apocalyptic situations and the United States has kind of fallen into disarray? There's been some Explosions is end. There's this thing called there's these astral looking ghoulish things that cause Rainstorms that kill people and all kinds of craziness. I mean it's really hard to explain it But Norman redesigns character is Sam and Sam has some special powers that he he he can come back to life. Which of course is perfect? If you're playing a video game because all they're gonNA die constantly or at least I do and he also also can somewhat since when these Bad guys are called. Bt So I don't know if that for bad things or what so but whenever they're around and he tries to have his guard up. The baby is called B. B. and they're these. I'm not sure I have this totally figured out yet either but they're like beyond fetuses but their unborn babies that are kept in this embryonic fluid type thing you can see through them through the container so you can wave to bb and and try to console bb when you get in trouble but beebe and Sam Create a connection that help them combat the bts as they try to make their way across the. US What your goal is at least initially I'm not very far in the game. I think I may be nine or ten hours into the game and if I understand right. It's like a forty to fifty our game. Your job is to kind of connect connect the US at various outposts like turn the Internet on or whatever and with this futuristic Internet. You have these three D. printers enters. That are all around the country. You could build you know stuff for you. You know all kinds of Supplies and you can build bridges and things like that which gets to the bigger theme of what Kajima says the game is is is a response to modern society. Diety and I don't know if he started out as a political statement but with brexit and trump in the. US says you know we're building walls calls when we should be and cutting ourselves off from others when we should be connecting. So that's you know literally you're connecting the the US in this game so he's are you totally confused now. I'll I'm absolutely confused but it falls in line I think with Kojima and general. Well that's always been the thing about Kojima Jima is. He's best known for the metal gear series which started out in the original Nintendo video game console and his morphed onto other consoles has been his biggest hit but he's gotten a a lot of the same reputation as far as these stories. That are Super Complex into a lot of people very confusing and convoluted How I mean? What's the best comparison Arison for him? I'm thinking in terms of movies in other mediums. He's just a very unique different guy. Well it was a good answer for you and it's very literally Part of the game. Gemmell. Touro is in the game. The the the the Director who did of water and did PAN's labyrinth and other films Gero plays a integral non playable character. Who Helps you along and studies you and help you build your offensive capabilities capabilities. So maybe someone like that. I mean there's definitely an atmosphere created in this game and if you've seen any of del Toro's films there's definitely atmospheres. Atmospheres created In his in his films What's interesting about this game is when you aren't being attacked by the bts you have this photo realistic world you're going through and what's kind of made the game a love it or hate it Thing now it's been out a week and a half or so is your kind of just People joke that you're a Amazon delivery guy you know. Oh you're delivering things and you're running here delivering stuff and get an order and delivering stuff and along the way you fight some things and you and you deliver
Surface Duo first look: Microsoft's foldable Android phone
"Big surprise surface duo a phone. It's a phone and you can you can fold it all the way around screens and the outside and just use the phone running android two displays right now. There's a snapdragon eight fifty five in there. We all suspect the by the time this thing launches called a twenty twenty. They'll they'll go to the next generation rationing of stamps Reagan's but right now it's fifty five. We've seen companies screw that up or they like they announce it way ahead of time with a relatively processor like oh the they'll fix that by the time at launches is and they don't so. I'm not one hundred percent confident that this won't be running a stab eight eight fifty in holiday two thousand twenty more than a year from now. It's it's back and forth because penicillin us on the show yesterday the hardwares lock. This is the third generation it's locked. We're announcing it early. Developers have it in a couple of months because we want them to build absence still Sri and stuff off and then sort of like whispers around the edges the event were when it wants like we'll see that's a real question yeah but we Panos said on the show on the record Australia astray hardware slot. This is what's as like the form factor of the design and everything yeah. I said well the hardware said notices it will the chip inside change. I think openair it's beautiful. I say I held one yesterday. I actually held Panos if you listen to the show you like hands it to me and you can hear me almost like runaway links except how scroll through Android on it opened the notifications shade like I used the thing it is. I love it. I love it and I know no. It's not it's got a big team. In the middle. passes like we're leaning into the seem. The interface does cool things with the seem like window snap to it. It's like that's that part of. It's neat right. He's like the same help structure windows on the interface structure displays. If you have a window that spans across it the wind even the content inside of the window. Oh he showed me a calendar up so even like calendar events and you like drag to create a calendar event snapped the wind. It's neat. I'll try to think as someone who has done some some bad. CSS In my time what sort of CSS would accommodate that well. I guess there's not there are they're invisible pixels under the seve or the displays no it's it's just two different displays and a hinge android ten specifically is designed for multi screen devices races when they announced it had a whatever they announced it back in March and it's Q. and then I got an early look at it every time I went to talk to Google about android ten. They're like an IT works better with multi screen devices and I was like cool. You know the galaxy fold is a dumpster fire right and they're like yeah but it works. Multi screen devices work really hard and I'm like why hey there's. LG Yeah we'll we'll get to that but Google has worked not just Samsung but with Microsoft to build support for multi-screen into the logic of android itself and you can actually see a hint of that right now on the fold where you can have a thing on the outside screen open it up and the whole APP appears on the inside screen just re sized The you can also see hints of this and all the work they did to make android apps work better on chrome or you can recite them and they can have arbitrary arbitrary window sizes without having to reload All of that stuff works like folds right into full. It's right into the surface duo because you can apps are now aware that different screens exists and they should do different things depending on what screen they're on and what screen they're being sent to and so it makes perfect sense that it. Mike just figure out how to have a calendar you hit a thing on one screen and then something within the same APP happens on the other screen or another APP knows to open on the screen because they basically basically told Google and Google said cool. Let's let's try and minimize fragmentation here. Use these tools to do it and so it's a mix of custom. Microsoft stuff but also stuff that's built into android enjoyed other people might be able to take advantage of now that acts on the GTE thing you're talking about. was a dual screen phone. It folded the other way. and you know it was like it didn't it wasn't aware of the the the gap it wasn't aware of the hinge and so everything new split across it like kind of bad ways. I think the hope is that the dual avoid a lot of those problems so this is. Maybe a little weedy but okay. I've got my email on one side and my calendar on the other side right classic to APP scenario. Now I want to send an email on the left side and I clicked new email. Let's let's say opens on the left side right but a counter still open on the right side but now I turn it and I've got this big wide keyboard which looks pretty like a nice situation. Then right is all going to work automatically. Is it GonNa know which apple I want to be on the top of which one I want to become a keyboard. DVD does it remember that kind of stuff unclear unclear there are million things they could get wrong here and apple by the way got a bunch of these things wrong and IPAD so at least. I'll be interested to see if Microsoft doesn't Yeah I've been given how much to talk about about flow and putting people in their productivity flow flow just conceptually. I hope their thing in this stuff through. I mean one of the justifications does he gave us for dual screen is important was like we hooked people up to brain activity sensors and measured. How much more brain activity is when. There's two screens which which is cool. I don't want to take away from the fact that's cool. It is very Microsoft right like why does Microsoft. No this is good because they generated a bunch of data that it says it is and then at the very end of it. It's like this is crazy. Sifi right like how many screens should you have as many as the brain scans. Tell us you should have and I wonder if like more more is better like you're GonNa get a four screen device four times activity and that brain thing is I mean like I have different modes of productivity. I have like my sitting with one big window. Open concentrating on one thing and then I have my my duel window setup and like you know like a dealer. You're saying I think this last week about the IP operate system. They're sort of a mix of spatial and time. Kinda hurts you so like if if having multiple screens or multiple pains or multiple sections is inconsistent inconsistent that is more work for your brain yeah and I love the thing about we're using the two displays and we're going to structure that that implies. There's like there's spatial metaphors. He's here not chronology metaphors but having held the thing for you know the brief moments. We got to hold it and swipe through it one. It's real it works. It doesn't it's it's hot fake. It's not just like a little piece of paper. Yup which is like companies do that to us. The version of android on it appears three lightly designed so that the icons under square the navigation shape looks with different. They're they say they're working with Google closely. They would not answer our questions about Ah Google letting you do stop and Panos was like letting conversations partnering conversation which is definitely some corporate executive talk. There's a lot to unpack there. I looked at he showed me on the screen. Google searches the default on this side but a bunch of Microsoft stuff is on the home screen of the interface on this side being searches there but Google APPs get to be the default in some cases. You know what the default browser is edge

"Then there's king of the night. And the next song was called time. Yeah. And I thought it was some kind of a Sifi expedition ace Good as song. song time world because we'll see like you said, I got this record and had no idea of any of the song. Yeah. Because I didn't have any of the albums before. So it was not king of the night. And then time world it's king of the nighttime world versus structure, both great second songs of the set because do sends it goes straight. Due to for me. I'll take this one. I I love king of the night time world, it's one of my favorite kiss songs. I love it live logos straight into that feedback. Ma'am. So I'm taking king of the night and time world the medley. What do you think I'm going to go with that as well? I mean, we're not to make it sound like we're collectively. Well, so far overlooking strut because we're not, of course. But yeah, I have to go with that. Also. It's it I liked that song particularly on a live to even better than Detroit rock city. Oh, really? I do. Yeah. For me. It's got a little bit more of a rock and roll kind of thing or Detroit rock city is a little bit darker. Yeah. And this one's a little more like celebratory rock and roll e kind of thing. So he'd grabbed me more immediately. When I first heard up and then the trivia permanent. Can you imagine? What was actually a cover song? Right. It was. They've Paul added a lot to it. But it was originally written by that Kim Fowler. Yeah. There is a version. You can go find it by some other band, and you can hear the first part. And there's a lot of a lot of additional parts. But the that did come from another to it's kind of like like we did our episode on is that you from unmask. There's a whole other version. Yeah. Cover tone as well. Yeah. Exactly our buddy. And I also will go with king of the night time world all the same reasons. The transition from Detroit rock city is great. And I prefer not that we're really getting into studio cuts. But I prefer the king of the nighttime world over the alive. Two version over the studio version by by a million agree. There you go. Yeah. Yeah. I agree. Chris same for me. I mean, those two songs even if you've never heard destroyer they flow together so nicely and just what an incredible one two punch. I think that's another thing. That's important is not only opener, but what they follow shirt with. Because you don't want to let down after not that starters letdown. But also do those are the first two songs destroy, right? So that's like that's the Fossey's tradition that we got from iron maiden and Metallica where they always open with the first long on the record. And then the second song on the record every tour made Metallica do that. I love it. Okay. So now ladies room versus got to choose when I was a kid. I would have went with ladies room. I thought the lyric was you're such a jewel in the road. That's what it sounds like. Yes. Julian the road. Yeah. Make something that would make you pull over. A shiny Jew woman. Standing on the corner. Like, I'm gonna pull this thing out of the gravel and have sex. That sounds like a good idea as I get older got to choose. Wins for me. It's such a great tuna didn't realize the good was until they did it on unplugged. Great harmonies. It's a little bit more mid tempo. Which is maybe why didn't like it as much as a kid. But yeah, got that use beats ladies room for me. Do you like the stage wrap of ladies room? It's amazing. Somebody says, yeah, I say that all the time when I'm having a couple of drinking wing. Right now. What do you think? Yeah. This one's a landslide for me forgot that use while it's probably not that we have to put numerical values on our kiss songs. But it's probably number two number three for me all time, and that was cemented from when Andy. And I went to the one live kiss the one that they they made that DVD out from the liver to win tour Stanley. Yeah..

"Right. Now is really more of a business idea sanity test so it's and I've realized there are things in it that wow you know if I'm not sitting there. They're not gonNA understand <hes> and having trying to get that they're still meet a need that that I know I know that pain point exists because I hear people talk about it and that's me questions. All the time like is is this idea good idea and the answer is always it depends it's it is it is just another thing down. The Path. I mean sanity tests in the case of the game. crafter is just another thing on the path the same path against so again game crafters all about making the game you know physically copy beat making a physical copy but we can also sell the game for you but we can sell it better. We know that the game doesn't suck so therefore the sanity test it. The game doesn't doesn't suck so yeah it also mart but how did it happen like how did you. I decide to do it. When how did that? Come about was it. Was it a pain where enough people saying I need this or were you. You sing that things weren't selling because people had crappy rule books or how did it happen. Well one of the biggest pain points in any game designers. Life is getting feedback because a lot of people they only want to play the finish finished polished game that they can get at the store and find people who are willing to sit down and read your rulebook which might try boring crappy or knows what is actually a hard thing to do right <hes> and so oh insanity tests aren't the only type of tests that we have at the game after this is just you know just one of them but it is it is hard to get people to to give feedback and so we provided a mechanism that if you would like professional great feedback all of our sanity testers actual people that run these tests all of them have backgrounds in literature they all have degrees in you know some sort of <hes> English grammar or whatever and they are all professional editors like they they have done editing for a living at one point in their life or another so they're all highly skilled people and they all happen to be gamers on top of it so it's giving you all of the skills that you need in a prepackaged format you pay your forty bucks and you get your sanity test right and I've got to point out here this J._T.'s going through you. You're going through all these great examples of listening to your customer and and really seeing what their pain points are not what you want to give them but what they need and filling the need very effectively. It's so easy like I'm totally ceiling this quote of a product looking for problem because I see that all the time the people are saying. I just want to do this. Okay that's great but is that something you want to do as a hobby or is it something you're doing is part of your business so you keep coming back to your the overall mission of the game crafter is is to help people create games that they can successfully sell that people want to buy and then what are the pain points along the way. It's agree. It's a great visual. I hope that people are picking up in lesson that if you really listen to the customer you you will you will hear what they want next. They'll tell you basically and it shows. I think it shows the clear trajectory of the difference between a company and this company. You know this company. The game crafter after is is basically this path. It's the it's the entire path. <hes> you know. It's got a direction. It's got it's got a narrative. It knows where it's going but you need lots of little products along the way or you you know her train cars. If you WANNA use that analogy lots of little train cars along the way to make the train go down the track and get everybody what they need so that we can get to the end point which is success so that's the difference between a product in a company is the uh-huh products solves a problem accompany cells saw solves the whole solution. It's the whole you know. The whole narrative is is covered. I love so you can't you can't start with you know you can't start with everything obviously the game in craft started off just solving the problem of manufacturing games and then we added insanity tests and we added in component studio batted in hundreds of other little things along the way to love it. That's a great place to wrap up for today and and I'm sure everyone's enjoying this as much as me and I've managed to recruit J._t.. To come back at some point in the future so you'll get to talk to him or at least here me talk to him again but for today thank you so much coming J._T.. This is an awesome awesome discussion.
