"And flop Zilla pro. But I definitely want to talk about the easy way to learn hand reading. And there is such a simple way that most people are not doing, but it's something very small that you can incorporate into your studies and into your play. So first, the easiest way to learn hand reading, when you're studying hands, is you simply assign a range with every single hand that you review or that you see. Of course, you can use a program like flop Zillow pro and full on assign a range, narrow through the streets, like I show you in the YouTube videos, the handwriting videos, right? But the other thing that you could do is simply assign a range with poker stove with equal lab with an iPhone app range builder, right? Anything at all. Every time you see a hand, whether it's out of your poker tracker for a database, you're reviewing losing hands this week. You want to see the biggest winning hands you want to work on that trouble spot of calling sea bets. Whatever it is, when you review a hand, you assign your opponent arrange. You basically ask yourself, what are they doing this with? And then figure out what hands can actually make these plays, right? If you're in a Discord server like in the poker forge, we have a Discord server specifically for poker forge members when somebody posts a hand, go through the hand, read the information that the person posts, whip out flop Zilla, whip out a free program like and assign them a range based on what you think the opponent is actually making their play with. If you continually do this over and over again through your studies, you're gonna naturally train yourself to think about your opponent's range with every hand that you review and every hand you play. Another place when you watch a video. So in these hand reading videos on YouTube, you're gonna see me assigning a range over and over again. But the range I assign them, that might not be the range that you actually think your opponents would play. Awesome, pause the video, open up flubs of the pro. Open up and assign the range that you think if this was your opponent on your table, what would they play this way? Well, build that range for yourself, train yourself with every ham that you see. And that's gonna really develop this as a very good habit for while you're playing as well. So that's the first thing in your studies. The next thing in game Azure playing. It's something that's gonna take a long time to train yourself to develop a habit of thinking about ranges, asking yourself what they do this with.
Will the PGA Become the Golfing 'B' League?
"Do you think? Do you think that the PGA Tour in 2023? Will be the B leagues? No. There's still a more player. Just because of sheer amounts of players, like not everybody's going to go to the live tour, right? I mean, if everybody went to the live tour, yes. Yes, but I mean, I know Tiger is not in his prime anymore, but he's still going to play some tourneys. I would guess, right? That's massive radius. He probably will. Like it was a disappointing. It started off amazing. He made his first two cuts in those first two majors. I mean, absolutely incredible, but you know, we're going to see Tiger play with Charlie in December again or whenever that father something is and it's going to freaking it's such a tease. What's that? It's such a tease. Isn't it? Yeah, but I'm just saying. It's going to be like it's going to be like the highest rated event in all of the, you know, except for the majors, probably in golf again, because people want to watch it. I'm just saying that dude, that dude, single handed, he is the needle, like exclusively is still. And then you're going to have the Rory's and more call was. All these guys, whatever, all the guys that said no way in hell I'm not going. So there's always going to be enough of those guys. And then not every young guy can go to live, right? They're going to try to this eugenio. I don't know how to save his last name, but the kid from Oklahoma state, right? Sure, Kara. Yeah, whatever. He still had eligibility Oklahoma state and he took the cash and left. I mean, they're going to sprinkle in some dudes like that, but the young, young, young guys. Now with court ferry tour having more money and they go to Q school for access. It's because of sheer volume to answer your question, right? They're just going to have more players, period. In general, and they'll develop the players in their get better and then maybe you'll see those guys go over there, which I'm sure will happen. So do I see it as the B tour? I mean, not in the next 20 years or something. It's different though. It's totally different product. It's just totally different product, man.

Julie Kelly on the Government's Humiliation in the Whitmer Case
"And she's Julie Kelly, senior contributor for American greatness dot com and greatness dot com, Julie. Welcome back to our new America first studio. Well deserved fancy digs there, Seb. Well, thank you. I don't know about that. We've been working in the salt mines for three years now. So this is our reward, I guess. So you, on the other hand, have been working like a single handed news agency when it comes to January the 6th. We'll put up on the screen right now. The two books that you've already written, this loyal opposition on the never Trump movement, and then now most recently, January 6th, let's show that book, Eric, how Democrats use the capital protest to launch a war on terror against the political right. For those people who outrageously missed our discussion on newsmax just yesterday, let me start with the question I asked you there with the collapse of the whitler quote unquote fed mapping trial, which you introduced me to that phrase. And with an acquittal of Matthew Martin from the January 6th quote unquote, insurrection or fed direction, I don't want to count our chickens before they're hatched, but are we potentially seeing a chink in the armor of the political exploitation and weaponization of the federal law enforcement and Department of Justice Julie? Well, let's hope so. I mean, the verdict's in the Whitmer fed napping trial were stunning. I mean, you really can't overstate what a huge defeat this was for the Justice Department and certainly for the FBI. You had a three week trial, most of the witnesses for the government were FBI agents undercover agents, experts, the lead informant. And this whole case was built around the idea that these men got together plotted to kidnap and kill Gretchen Whitmer in the fall of 2020. But what the defense put together over a series of months in numerous court motions was a very compelling and ultimately convincing case of FBI entrapment. That was their argument that was their defense solely rested on the fact that the FBI attempted to induce these men who otherwise would not have tried to commit any of these crimes, induce them into this plot. That is what the jury concluded. They equated two men outright and the other two men, including the alleged ring leader, the jury could not come to any conclusion was hung jury, the judge declared a mistrial. And the Justice Department learning nothing apparently is planning to retrial retry Adam Fox and Barry cross

"The one drop almost 4000 players mentally how different was that because it's just a different animal altogether. Obviously not only different games, 6 max and full ring. But so many more people to get through, et cetera, et cetera. How different was that and were you able to take advantage of anything along the way because of it or when it came down to the end? It was pretty much similar. 100%. The little one drop final table, I drew a great seat. The only person I knew was sorel Nazi. And I had immediately it was obviously immediate left. Yeah, yeah. And everyone else's results at that phone table were like pretty minimal leading up to that event. So it put me in a situation that having just won the 5 K, I was probably the most experienced player at the table at that time. I cared about the money, probably the least. And I was able to just apply a lot of pressure. And honestly get pretty out of line. I remember one hand specifically that I got really out of line. Knowing a guy had a monster, which is knowing the 8th to 7th. It was actually 9 to 8. So it was like literally like if you're out now you don't make the official final table, you unofficial fan table and you bubbled it. And I just knew like you just never calling. So I just went and at the 5 K like if I try to do this to Jonathan jaffe or Galen hall, they just don't anyways. And just take the bubble. Right. So put me in a position where I was able to really get on the gas and also pump the brakes versus some people because when you're like quote unquote, the most experienced or best player at a table. And their common mistake, I think people make is they just proceed to try to play when every single hand. When they kind of beat themselves up, real bad. Because they're post flop edges real. So you're better off..
There Is a Dearth of Courage in America Unlike Ever Before
"All of you are can play a part and will play a part in what is missing most in this country and so obviously were missing lots of things right now in our country or missing president. You know we're missing integrity truth but the thing that is missing all of you are playing a role in fixing every single day is courage. Courage is lacking in our country. Unlike any other time that i personally have seen an honestly in the last sixty years and the reason why courage is lacking is because so many people are afraid to do. What they know is the right thing. Because they're afraid of the downside georgia's patton who is one of the greatest men ever to live said. Moral courage is the most necessary yet.

We'll be graded differently because you are a conservative in class. Yeah every single hand goes up and so what. You're willing to pay that price. You're willing to do the right thing.

When to Pass Up an Edge
"Strategy question comes to us from e. n. and i'm actually going to paraphrase a little bit because he asked about it in the context of a specific hand but i think that the specific hand is is not terribly important but question was just kind of about when to pass up an edge in tournaments You know the idea. If this is a soft field you can come. Continue to accumulate shifts. Maybe without getting all in or without taking a big risk of elimination. And how should you make these decisions of Essentially valuing your tournament life to say even though this might be plus chippy play How should i think about. Maybe it's not worth the risk. And i can find better plus. Tbb plays by folding now and trying to continue to play later so basically we said is. Is there a way to gauge your edge to justify folding in spy where you're tournament life is on the line i would say the short answer is yes. I have a video series on tournament poker edge which gets to this a little bit. It's called getting off on the right foot. It's about thinking in terms of ev when you're playing tournaments as opposed to Thinking in terms of dislike you know winning the tournament or something like that get into the topic of a little bit there but you know basically you can measure your win rate in a tournament the same way that you can in a cash game. We're trying to estimate it the same way. So i think most people are familiar with this idea of big blinds per hundred a win rate and cash game players certainly are familiar with it in tournaments big blinds. One hundred is not the only thing we care about because you know there are things like icm and stuff like that. But essentially big blinds per hundred is a measure of like for every hundred hands that you play. How many big blinds do you win on average. And that's a more than useful studying cash games because the situations are more similar to each other. Like you know if you play. Fifty thousand hands of online cash. No limit holdem. Those fifty thousand hands are like. There fairly often played with similar stack sizes. They played with similar number players at the table. they're not usually played with Aunties often they played against a field of of many he might play with the same person thousands of times over the course of those fifty thousand hands so they are a little bit more comparable to each other even so like if you have a big enough sample size of tournaments you can start to get a sense of. What is your win rate. Look like in tournaments. I will say. I mean you can at least get a sense of like what are the. What are the bounds. Like what kinds of win rates are are reasonable. And i think this is where this is really what we're interested in anyway. I think one thing that happens a lot in tournaments is people get into spots and rather than trying to figure out the actual. Ev of leeann like they're facing they raise and then somebody jams on them and like rather than trying to actually figure out the call. They'll i think it's frankly it's kind of a lazy approach. They'll just kind of shrug and be like well. I don't want to risk it. I can accumulate chips more. Like i have an edge. I don't wanna risking eliminate. I'm just gonna fold this. I i think it's i it's worth figuring out like. How much would it be worth to you to call. You should know how to do that. And i definitely. I talked about how to do that in that getting off on the right foot series but basically it's just a matter of looking at your pods compared to how much you need to call and assessing your equity versus the opponents range so i think i you need to put a number on. What is it worse to me to call and something to understand. Is that even calls. That might not seem like they're worth very much like maybe you're facing twenty five big blind shove and calling only has an ebay of like plus half a big blind. So why am. I going to risk twenty-five big blinds to try to win half the big blind winning half a big blind in a single hand translates to fifty big blinds per one hundred hands played a win rate of fifty big blinds per hundred dutton astronomical enraged. If you could actually win half a big blind every single hand that you played you would be the greatest poker player in the

"The performance is a great very lucky with costing people who really boy into it. I saw recently with matt. Damon and ed norton when they went to the world series and obviously they're not gonna poker but they say that they interviewed him and they said it's like if someone tried to act someone at that table tried to act in hollywood movie. It wouldn't work and and they're not that good at the table because they don't do any things apoka pro has to do to make a profit at a very difficult game to do so they were very honest about it and i think knowing that you can see. They sort of had that in their head when they were making the movie. And the scripting compliment scripts and production second-to-none in my opinion absolutely well as it did mark the start of poker being depicted onscreen closer to the way it release it. Also maybe marked the end of to you. You rent a poker in the movies in time. Look you smart money. Ocean's eleven lock stock into smoking barrels and that awful stinker runner runner having seen the template of how. It's done better do they get it around in those movies. I mean runner runner is woefully bad. You know the the premise is quite good. You can understand. Why it was commissioned a movie if you into a hollywood producer now and that movie not been made they would probably make that movie pretty quickly because it sounds like a good idea but they just blow it. I mean ben. Affleck is shocking. Justin timberlake his terrible. It's really not a great movie for anyone. Involved and in time is awful. There are some old school poker movies. They're fun to watch the poco moment in there and say off those films. The worst is to minute scene in lock stock where they're just flinging cards each other very serious since she just throwing cards around a table and if that was your family it would be. You know that wasn't poker. No one thinks he's poke other than the four actors involved clearly been told be playing instead straight last.

"It's like what are you. Whose sales are you trying to protect from cannibalizing from new. It's it's like. It's like watching a hockey game right. And at the end of the game they all take off their jerseys and they're all playing for the same team anyway. Glad shoe it's a whole. It's all to enrich. Gary bettman just kidding. It's not by the way jarod tech. Love your videos I can't believe how many others youtubers watching this right now. Kraft computing's in there to jerry. We actually did a video. That was inspired. We ended up doing our own investigation into some other stuff but by your video on the amdi advantage laptop. We had a lot of fun with that one. Alex spent most of this week on it and was yeah. It was definitely we massive. Kudos to you. We start you out in the video. You're awesome man all right anyway. Let's let's keep going because we're not quite done yet here. Ladies and gentlemen so. Lg provided guidelines for testing. And what appear to be an effort to ensure the monitor's reviewed an ideal slash specific modes in order to get a favourable results. Now that wouldn't always be my read of situation like this. In a lot of cases review the reviewers guide or the guidelines given to reviewers are in order for us to have a baseline for what we should expect. Now i think the issue here is one of maybe language barrier or culture barrier. Because there's nothing necessarily wrong with a manufacturer saying like let's say in video. Were to say okay. We measured these power consumption numbers and we measured them in these games and the reason they provide that information is not to tie our hands and say that we are not allowed to test and other games or at other settings or whatever it's to give a reference point so that if we run it the same way in the same game and we get a different result we can go back and be like hey there might be a problem with our card or maybe a problem with our tests so that they can help us. That's what they have. They have actual media engineer people for they are trained on both the engineering side and how to interact with the press so that they can walk you through these processes and help you make sure that not that. The product is being seen in the best possible light. Obviously that's very intention. It's but in some cases they've even helped us well at least troubleshoot through bad things that we have ultimately presented as bad things about the product. They're just. They're just there to help themselves get a fighting chance and make sure it's chigney evaluated fairly. There's also like if there's some form of software features say like to the invidia example so you get graphics card from either team and it has a new software feature. That set shows up really well on a few games. I can tell you kinda like what games those are. Maybe wear in the game. It happens so that you can show kind of both sides of the story because you're not hopefully stupider and are only going to show that game and only that specific scenario but you can show okay. Yeah it doesn't work in all these scenarios but when it does work it looks cool here and that just it just helps them. Fight whole geyser fosters in the case of a monitor there are ways to test contrast ratio incorrectly. For example. like if you were to for example turned the back backlight all the way down on your monitor before you tested the contrast ratio you end up with an abominable result that just that just. It's going to throw off. What your brightest rates will be and it might not have exactly the same positive impact on your darkest hours. That's just the way it is. There's nothing inherently wrong with that the problem is that whether it's because they're used to dealing with from my experience Typically eastern press is a little bit more Play ball when it comes to these kinds of arrangements whether it's because they're used to dealing with Oppress where culturally. There are different norms or whether it's a language barrier or whether they just outright. We're trying to bribe hardware box. I'm not going to be the one to make the judge. 'cause there's clearly a lot of things that are english is not the first language of the person who wrote this email. Okay let's just get that out of the way So i'm not going to make a judgment as to what their intention was but it's very clear from the way they'd come across that they were trying to tie tim's arms they wanted to only is opposed to guiding for how to get the best result and to be clear with with some cultural differences or not. This does absolutely happened. Six in the western world as well. We've we have seen it with other creators It has happened. I doesn't seem very common. And i'm not sure how common it is outside of that. But yeah all right. Let's move on because we're not done yet. The passive aggressive bid. If the review doesn't match the guidelines few edits would be necessary. I understand that. I think that's at least forty percent sort of language barrier there And then if you provide them with draft blah additional compensation okay so timber applied the specified guidelines presented go against our review policies. We do not allow any manufacturer dictate. How we review products do not provide drafts of reviews for companies to view. We also do not accept any compensation for reviews. We do not pay reviews. This is something. sorry. I'll finish reading his email. Ask such. We'll be progressing with our view normal. I'd appreciate a response within twenty four hours so we can finalise this. Okay so let me get this straight. There are companies and agencies that we have told multiple times like like like more than i can count on a single hand times that a review cannot be paid review. There is no such thing as a paid review. it's paid it's not a review review and it's not paid. You can have a paid video and you can have a review and those are completely different things and they will never be the same and anyone who does say that they do paid. Reviews does not do reviews they do product showcases which is what we call them and that's what they are.

So here's my four part poker development plan part. One is to live for bread and butter so brennan butter. It's seeing the flop in position as the pre flop razor versus one or two other players. It's a concept that i initially learned from tommy angelo in his book elements of poker my own poker game and what i teach. My students is all about bread and butter. Now when you live for bread and butter it ingrains the most important aspects for profitable poking your skillset namely those two aspects that you need for profitable poker our understanding and and utilizing the value of position and the value of having the pre flop range. So when you live for bread and butter you strive for positional advantage with every single hand that you play and if you can't have post flop position you're giving that advantage to someone else and it makes poker less profitable obviously less fun. You hate playing out of position right and you love being in position yeah live for brennan butter. Strive for that positional advantage. Also when you live for bread and butter you strive to be the last razor pre flop that means you have the best hands in your pocket. Queens puckett kings aces right and your opponent who called you pre flop. They don't have those in their range. They've got a weaker range. Which gives you that. Mathematical pre flop advantage. Now you might be holding jack nine suited. But they don't know that right. You came in for the race of. They called for all day. No you have ace. King ace's queens tens in your age all that good stuff right now when you have bread and butter you have that range advantage with that mathematical advantage and the positional advantage against him.

Stocks Fall as Investors Brace for Earnings Season
"Are about ready to inter what we used to call earning season. I will say used to. Because it's doubtful that a backward-looking indicator going back three months is going to matter a whole lot given that the last month of that quarter pretty much saw the greatest single-handed slowdown in the history of the American economy. However we have to pay more attention. Perhaps I would imagine Nathan to companies like the banks are seeing right now and saying about the future. What are you looking for? I mean listen. I think the other panelists are going to have a lot more constructive things to say about the banks. Their earnings power. How they're into this crisis. This is not a banking crisis like the financial crisis from twelve years ago. But I think it's worth noting that last year the last time. There's about a volatility in the bank stocks. Who when the ten year Treasury yield curve inverted last summer and you know that obviously portend so difficult times the economy. We know that that is preceded almost every recession prior. We're going to be in a recession now. Just make the one point though when you go back to the financial crisis that yield curve inverted in two thousand and six and it started going up pretty steadily in o-9 just as bank stocks were crashing bank stocks. Now in this crisis right right here are some of the hardest hit stocks. And what are we seeing? We're starting to see that yield curve after inverted last summer. It's kind of widening out again so to me. That does not that should not mean that bank stocks are out of the woods and a lot of their businesses are very very exposed to some of the industries that are very impaired and I would just say that we are very early on in these economic crisis so the color that we get from banks I suspect is GONNA be somewhat disappointing and it's not going to be. We're not going to see a tunnel visibility on the earnings front either.

S. most of our revenues from the US our sales teams are in LA San Francisco New York so you know I don't think could be afforded sure for that much longer talk about the talk about the sales function of what you guys too because this is becoming more than just a community the other several business models and in the community so let's kick out of the business side for second talk about yeah sales function in such so I mean what we originally did was build scale first and then my tie second but we're already into that you know it's a monetization stage of this where we build you know over two hundred million gamers across the internet sixty five million of which are in the US which makes us the number one gaming network and reach according to comscore the third party verified in the United States and the United Kingdom while so that's websites that social media that you two are and that's where we're getting you know the eyeballs and attention engagements of all these users are all these gamers through there's different mediums however we've also got into more recently is we launched a gaming expo here in Toronto and immediately within a year our first year we had twelve thousand people now we have over thirty thousand people were the largest gaming expo in Canada we're now expanding into the US as well so we have the experience of portion so these gamers who are kind of out there in a basement or wherever they are are not coming out in real life to meet other gamers like them so I I think that that social aspect really has a human in real life component to it as well which is something that gamers are creating the the question for me is if you if you consider that one of the biggest turning point your business one of them was a luminosity merger correct I have to believe that was that was a human capital as well as asset more to talk about a little bit yeah so if there are several components to ideal of what how would be stuck stop so number one is a gaming celebrities and professionals that you sports professionals is becoming the fastest growing part of this whole business and through this acquisition we acquired or we merged with one of the top three you sports brands an entire world and we now have seventy or so players for celebrities or under contract with us our roster and they are reaching you know some of them our like Connie or drink you know they're just massive in terms of the region the younger audience looking up to them and they now represent us similar to how you might have is in San Diego or you know the Lakers roster yeah yeah I'd like to be a play by so it was a process we had forty thousand followers on yeah until I met Menasha and I feel like I mean we're talking yeah drone races count because I've seen some of those on TV droned raise that's gonna be a vertical free at some point right maybe at some point Hey we're looking at here today what what we think and is this place you look like in the next eighteen months obviously a nasdaq type thing more acquisitions more people more games yeah well I I I think the biggest thing is right now we have over a billion page views I'm not I'm not and we we got a my ties that you know we we monetize it as a start up at eight dollars CPM that's you know the at the the metric that people using at world the comparative companies that have been built up their sales organizations are sung S. thirty dollars CPM so we need to take all that inventory that we the mast all that supply and now go you know build up the sales organizations in each different regions and and monetize this properly so I also one of my songs is.

go ahead please it also have to testify if there's some sort of deal cut would you be willing to do so has nothing to do they should be testifying because they have been asked to testify by Congress it isn't a deal it's about a system of checks and balances can we not have any more questions about a patient can we not have any more questions about impeachment bill o'reilly it was the day that she said we're putting impeachment articles together can we not have any more questions about impeachment bill are you there still I can hear me yeah okay I can hear what are your thoughts there yeah do you get a sense of entitlement from a Mrs closely all you have to maintain she is not really a regular person look at a background well see father in politics Maryland raisin which out to the most liberal district in the country runs around just one of the S. any difficult questions she just wants to spout propaganda I said before the break that she is a fanatic a fanatic is a person who is in capable of evaluating an opposing point of view not going but even a value waiting saying well how does the Republican party think well why did they want certain things forget it forget it it's a far left person she has a vision and that's it and if you don't have the vision he's going to try to hurt you well she seems what was incredible they asked her about do you hate Donald Trump and she went off and said you know how dare you don't you ever questioned me like that again and I thought yeah I thought to myself Gee wouldn't it be nice if I could have said that after the ten thousandth question about how much I hate people I mean all right it's insane mark follow up today if I had been there my follow up would have been after she said that if I had been rose and I would have said you know you sound a lot like Vladimir Putin ward interest that would have been the what I that she does okay and she doesn't want opposing points of view so let me take you one more place on the impeachment yeah yesterday I was with an audience of about forty fifty people here in the studio and I asked them what do you think are we at least going to get a fair trial in the Senate and actually find out if Donald Trump is guilty or innocent in a fair way in the Senate not a single hand went up not one when I write and I expected you know are we actually gonna find out what happened you know with this this whole impeachment trial in who's involved in all of that I expected there to be feel bands but when I asked are we actually going to find out what's true no one raised their hands on the simple thing of what was the the you know phone call and the actual charges of the articles of impeachment are there are there any the basis to that they didn't even think that they would get a fair trial in the Senate thanks guys and they're smart because the Republican senators want to embarrass the Democratic Party so they're not going to lose their not looking for the truth and for my perspective and I study this pretty hard Jonathan Trumbull was indiscreet and how he approached the Ukraine but is that a shock to anybody no okay that's what he is that's what he does he's a stream of consciousness speaker he reacts emotionally he felt that there was corruption in the Ukraine on a number of different fronts including Joe Biden Anne ask the president to investigate it that's it okay now the Republican Party they don't want they they said that time and time again what they want to do is bring in hunter Biden and Joe Biden and she of and embarrass the hell out of them yeah but I think bringing I I honestly think we have spent four years now on impeachment we have spent millions of dollars on investigation and we found out that Donald Trump really didn't do anything in collusion with Russia we found out was something we already know that Russia is trying to infiltrate our country and disturb our elections they don't care who the winner is quite honestly right they just are trying to pit us against each other but they haven't spent any time on looking really into that then as soon as he makes this phone call they rush to impeachment somebody has to be held responsible for the I what I think is an abuse of the American pocket book if not abuse of power never going to happen I mean it's just not going to happen everybody is looking for an Avenue to victory and next November and you know it's not just the president hurts other Republicans guy take back the house yeah I mean if they can control the house and the Senate and trump wins what is the best but isn't the best way out in the best way to do that to show that he threw a fair process show that the that Adam Schiff was cooking the books and college that will never acknowledge it in a million years no matter what this comes to the fore Monday's big day with the horror which report I was just gonna ask you about that it comes out what do you ready already The Washington Post taking the lease has nothing no big deal no no no no there are many things so that's what you're going to get what they did in the Senate the press would spin it like I don't come out so bad no big deal but you know look so when we went what he's good at what he is going to happen with the horror its report do you have any inkling of what we're gonna find somebody in the justice department and but I hate to use anonymous sources you know that it's like I can't tell your audience that this is true but this is what the person said to make out of ten ten being the most helpful to the trump administration and zero being port and zero being just neutral or help hurtful okay can help full zero hurtful this is an eight it's an eight out of ten that will help truck that's what the guy said to me and I don't know if it's true I had no idea the spinning he's obviously in the administration so what we have for what it's worth what would those things be better in the hour if Harwich who is not Eliot ness all right he's not a crusader for justice always the inspector general of the justice department he is your crowd see why a village people die okay if he says I'm referring two door who is a criminal investigator means names that he might want to consider indicting home run for trump impeachment goes off the rails the American people are an uproar cable news ratings go through the roof if that is the case if these million now and says well worn really abuse of power by the owners really did mean and really well then it said nothing to nothing right so they'll be on a Monday and will play talk about next week on it but the over arch here is this the nothing really matters except the election next November because the American people have east door decision to make start do you want an imperfect man Donald Trump and an imperfect is a charitable work if you read the United States to drop by lay the man out for you okay you want and in perfect manners actually helping the country's policies are helping the country and they are okay or do you want at progressive left that's gonna change every fundamental thing that we have everything what do you want and that's the vote and it's not just for president is set so the house the Senate because whoever gets power if the Republican Party gets power in that both houses and the presidency next November the far left progressive movement is get finished in the history of this country at least for the foreseeable future if the opposite happens we enter into an age of anarchy well all of our traditions are offended what everything changes where the government becomes so powerful that the state and the local officials have nothing to say everything will be run out of Washington from a progressive perspective that is what Nancy Pelosi Adam ship all of these people want they want more power to tell you what to do and how to live on every issue this is what is at stake why do you say that the progressive era if you will or the progressive movement towards that will be gone for the foreseeable future because I'm rom and McCarthy and Graham will come in with other engines all engines and they will attack every progressive saying or or issue and destroy it what makes you say that way because they're mad is particularly the president now I'm gonna tell your audience something that I haven't really made public but I had dinner with trump last week in the residence we can't with camera with him okay I'm John Hill you should have let you were invited okay all right okay all right so and and I put troubles can

And I was looking down here had it and the next Maha Har- era goes all right guys and see this Apple Update for user privacy fuels questions and criticism that Seattle title time so interesting what their view is going to be. The latest flare-up comes after apple made changes to its new mobile operating system that advertised as improving moving privacy but that also gives the company an edge over other makers and using the location tracking features of the device. What in his first comments on the matter? The top Democrat cutters Democrat in charge of Apple. What the hell in charge of a sprawling antitrust investigation into Silicon Valley juggernauts sites that changes as one of a number of factors? His committee will be exploring as part of an antitrust probe. I'm increasingly concerned about the use of privacy as a shield for anti competitive conduct. Oh okay so apple's is going at private proprietary. You're not allowed and kind of you know well a lot of people go.

"single hand" Discussed on The Kindle Chronicles
"Alexa reheat one cup of coffee. Starting coffee one minute. Fifteen seconds. Well that's a little bit of convenience that has been added to my den here in Cambridge. This is linearly with the kindle. Chronicles on Thanksgiving. I have the Alexis Microwave set up next my desk and I can have her reheat a cup of coffee so that I'll be ready caffeinated to finish up the show a early this week because Darlene are going to be flying to Omaha tonight for the wedding of our nephew Stephen and his fiancee Cura Kira. And then we're off to Denver after that and then back to Cambridge but today I have a good show for you featuring Sarah Gilman who heads. What's up the Amazon team? That recently put out the best books of two thousand nineteen. We really want to choose books that we feel like customers will love or non pushy way should love. Let's first go to one news item. I want to tell you about and I heard about this from Reso- Tiriac who sent me a link that it was an article. Alexis voice can now express disappointment and excitement that it comes from j Peters in the verge what this shows is sometimes I wonder what are these. Thousands of people that Amazon has hired to work on Alexa. Actually doing and this story gave a chance to dive in and see some very impressive things that fall into the category of helping the Alexa Voice. Sound sound more natural and the way it works is There's a link in this piece to the Alexa Skills Kit blog. That's where the verge. He's got his information and it talks about these speech synthesis markup language S. s. m. l.. What this does is enable developers of Lexus skills to not only enter taxed? That Alexa is going to be responding. When a customer asked a question does something but to shape that text I in ways the some of which have already been in existence in some are new with this announcement One of the ones which they announced today is called domain. That's a tag for SM L.. And if you if you go to the post you're GONNA see if you're coder. You're GonNa see things which you understand for civilian Really diving deep into what lies beneath Alexis voice but this domain tag enables the text to speech Alexa voice to sound like a newscaster. It's only only available in English for. US in Australia at this point and another choice under domain is music and that's style speech for talking about Music Video Radio and other multimedia content. I'll play you a couple of clips that show the difference between the news voice or mode for the US versus Australia San Francisco two point two billion dollars grand central terminal open spanning three city blocks. San Francisco's two billion dollars. Transit terminal is open after nearly a decade under construction there was a news voice in the US. And here's here's what sounds in Australian full. My Brazilian President Louis Nacion Lula. Da Silva has been freed after more than eighteen months in prison. The left-wing former Lleida data nine of Lula with I know Australian isn't a language that's English has is spoken in Australian. So here what you see is there's a a mode that simulates a newscaster and is now available in these two dialects the other mode which is for talking about out music video when other multimedia content. It's it's slightly different. It's a softer kind of you. Know the way you would be talking about music as opposed to hard news and that again is available in either Australian or US dialect the other New Capability the developers have is the to add emotions and that's a separate tag which is called Amazon Colin emotion. The possible values are are excited or disappointed in each of those can be a low medium or high. Here's what that sounds like. I'm playing a single hand and what looks like a losing game game. I'm playing single hand in. What looks like a losing game? Those were the low and the high versions of the disappointed disappointed voice. Here are the low and high settings for the excited voice. I'm playing single hand in. What looks like a losing game? I'm I'm playing a single hand in what looks like a losing game now. True to form Amazon's not just putting out these capabilities for developers but they're also including On the site site best practices advice on how to use them because the purpose of all these things is of course to delight customers have customer experience be absolutely Salihi as good as it can be so under the advice to developers for using these new speaking styles. It says don't Overdo the use of Alexis speaking styles as this can create eight a poor unpleasant customer experience for example don't switch between different speaking styles extremely frequently the An example of how this can be used they they say if you have a Alexa respond in a happy. You're excited tone. You might do that if you've got a game on Alexa. And if if the customer gets a right answer trivia the response can be set to respond happily good job did great and then I love this one. You could have Alexa respond in a Disappointed or empathetic voice. When the customer asked for a sports score in their favor team lost and of course that could be programmed in depending depending on where the location and things like that? So I I love this because of the innovation that that it indicates just because I'm I like I said I'm curious about what can all of these thousands of people do to work on the Alexa Platform. Just Jeff bezos Basil's Couple of years ago. In the shareholder's letter pointed out that it was clear. Alexa was one of the experiments or innovations that has Get lots of promise. And so he said we're going all in and when he goes all in on something that means putting all kinds of resources and talent on and when you can hire really smart people to work on something this you you've come up with this level of refinement in what the Alexa Voice is able to convey on the blog posted mentioned mentioned somebody on the Alexa team. WHO's in charge of this development and I've reached out my folks at Amazon chief? Maybe I can get him on the show for or the week after next that. That'll be helpful because we're going to be traveling in Europe between December tenth the twentieth. So I'd like to record in advance a conversations to see if we can find out more about these new tags and abilities of Alexa for the tip. I want to tell you about another other innovations which I find interesting and this is something which you can use on a fire TV whether you've got a TV. That has fire TV capability or using using the fire TV stick. It's a first of its kind news reading APP DEVELOPED FOR TV. And naturally it's from the Washington Post which is owned by. Jeff bezos. Yes I tried to sell you you navigate from the home Screen on the fire TV. And you look for APPS and a little bit of hunting around but you're basically looking for an APP that says That is under the news category and it's The Washington Post. I tried this a few nights ago. it's you can scroll articles. The articles articles are curated. So that what. You're seeing as the something from the day's news very topical. It's not a fabulous way to read a newspaper and you're sitting there and you're seeing the article scroll up on your TV screen and you can control it with your clicker. But it's intriguing. And but the real payoff is that. If there's a video video which frequently there is when I read The Washington Post on my iphone There's videos and I can watch but if you pull up a video in this setting all of a sudden it's it's commanding your whole TV screen and it becomes a much more dramatic way to See a video that's embedded in a news story. One that I tried died when I was doing this. It was a fairly long video. Maybe ten or fifteen minutes and it was about the ESPIONAGE CHARGES AGAINST The Washington Post reporter Jason Roseanne that resulted in him being held an Iranian prison for eighteen months and the video simply told all the story that had how he had been charged under false pretenses for espionage and the very difficult negotiations to get him release which had to do with the Iranian nuclear deal which was a accomplished in two thousand sixteen. One thing I noticed was that of course. It's very exciting when he finally does get released safely at the time I was pleased in just sort of intrigued. Need to see that Jeff Bezos met Jason in Germany a plight private plane and flew him back to the United States. I think.

'Toy Story 4' is a Masterpiece. Is It in Pixar's Top 5?
"You. I'm Shawn fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big Pixar podcast. They conversation show about Toy Story, four and all sorts of childish things. I'm joined today by apparent at the ringer rob heart villa. Hello rub. Hello. How's it going? It's going very well. And I appreciate you being here. You know, some of my frequent co host on the show among them, amended Dobbins, and Chris Ryan are, just straight up assholes about animated movies, and I noticed that I need to have people on to talk about important animated films. And I think even before you were a parent, you would have been a thoughtful and sophisticated guest for this episode, but you are a father and so you are happenings moves to Pixar in, in deep way in recent years. Is that fair to say that's very fair to say very complicated relationship with these movies at this point? But yes, yes, so we'll talk about that a bit on this show. I think we'll start the show though by talking about the new Pixar movie, which is, of course, Toy Story four, I think, when Pixar I started about twenty or so years ago, I never would have guessed that. That there would have been a fourth installment of any of these movies, in fact when they started. They seemed like a new version of a kind of storytelling that didn't necessitate sequels if you look on the ring dot com right now you can read a really interesting column by miles Surrey about the state of Pixar and their decision to make a series of sequels over the last ten years, and what that means for their, their brand, and what it means for their business and what it means for their creativity. And in some ways, I think it's been really threatened over the last few years, you know, we were just talking before we started recording about the infamous cars, three, which I would say is not one of the more legendary. In the Pixar verse. But Toy Story four, I thought was quite wonderful. And I thought it hearkens back to what makes a lot of these films. Great and also push them forward a little bit, rob. How did you receive toys story for what did you make in the movie, I saw last night with my sons who are eight and five and sort of Iraq is sort of preview screening. And I my kids laughed more laughed, louder just more obnoxiously than at any movie. I think that I've ever taken them to know. So I by by that measure, I mean it was a huge success. And I thought it was wonderful, and I thought it push things forward, but also sort of hold back on that sort of classic Pixar idea that like the kids are delighted, and the parents are total emotional wrecks. You know what I'm saying? Like I it's sort of an impressive mass magic trick that these movies can do. And I think especially of inside out, you know, which was, my, I think I've written about this on the side a couple times now. But like my son walk. Out of inside out. He was five at the time and he thought anger was funny, and I was just crying mess, you know, because I just watched I just watch goofball island, which is like the visual manifestation of like a joyful kid becoming a sullen teenager, like depicted, on, like a giant theater screen, and it was just the most crushing experience like the way those movies these movies are designed to work on those two levels, and they sort of drive, the parents to the toy store, but also to therapy, like, I, I feel like this one was sort of uncomplicated, Katie just funny and delightful and I had it seriousness and had like themes that parents, especially it would pick up on. But like it wasn't working that dichotomy where it was sort of, like designed to upset me personally, you know what I'm saying? Like I feel like they can play with that a little bit. But they don't have to hammer at it all the time in every movie that they put out, you know, I could just enjoy my kids, enjoying this one, a lot more than I feel like the last. Several Pixar movies. Yeah. I agree with that. I do think though, there is this entire school of almost academic sought around Pixar movies. And if you want to, if you want to experience Toy Story four as an exegesis on creationism and identity and a cartesian analysis of society, you probably could do that. I absolutely. Yeah. And I think that is that, that whole divide is fascinating to me the way that you've underlying basically the pure kid enjoyment of something, and the way that adults are entertained, and even moved by some of their films. I feel like can you give me a little bit of a sense of as a parent? What it's like to see a lot of movies like this, not just Pixar movies, but animated movies or what's on TV or what streaming for your kids and what the balance is between this is secretly for parents. And this is actually just dumb entertainment for kids, so that they don't like break things in the kitchen. Yeah. I mean, I feel like I've seen every type of movie along that spectrum, you know, and I haven't hated any. Movie that I think I've taken my kids to even like down to, like rock dog or whatever, you know, like I it's the LEGO movies are trying to be adult and trying to be knowing and it feels like they are specifically pitched for the adults in a way that, like a lot of the jokes are going right over the kids heads, like I don't dislike those movies, but I think that the LEGO movies are a little too cute about that. You know, I've seen plenty of things like, you know, the emoji movie or the trolls movie or whatever. Which are, you know, have theoretically adult jokes, but aren't trying to work that duality certainly the way that Pixar movies. Are you think about four key who like the new protagonist are like the new cool character here in Toy Story, four four key spends the movie like having an identity crisis like ease? He's a new toy but he thinks he's trash. And like he wants to be trash like he's literally, a spark with pipe cleaner arms, and he spends the whole first thirty minutes of the movie is going trash trash. And like I think that's really profound. And my son just really loves the way that four key keep saying, trash trash, like he did it. My son did it all the way home whole drive home like. And it's that's a cool. Little thing, that's you know, the different levels, and you can appreciate it on without it having to be this comedy versus tragedy divide. You know, it's sort of typifies, you know, again, like inside out, or even like the last toys story movie, Toy Story, three ends, of course, with, like, the scene, where they're all heading down into the incinerator, and they all sort of somberly, join hands and they're sort of resigned to the fact that they're all gonna die like all these little toys, and it's you know, I'm sort of a crying rack, and like my sons are sort of mildly disturbed, but they figure everything is going to be okay. And it is, but, like there's a moment of like pure pesos on that level in this movie, and I was, frankly, kind of relieves like the idea that I have to walk into every Pixar movie like braced dad, this huge sort of existential breakdown, you know, as my kids, just enjoy themselves like at felt like we pulled back on that. A little bit. And I was grateful for that. I agree with you. It's it did feel bit like an episodic adventure, which wasn't a bad Yang. I think sometimes you can get a movie like that, where the stakes have been lowered from the previous film, and you're like, well nigh. You're just wasting my time. But inevitably when it's a movie about anthropomorphized toys, somehow, it's nice to just have something that is a little bit more fun. I mean you mentioned Toy Story three which, you know, sort of ends with that transition from Andy to Bonnie, and then inevitably Bonnie becomes the, the young child, who is the owner of all these toys. And so were reintroduced to a world that features some of Bonnie's toys, and then the toys from the classical Toy Story story, and then four he comes along on the first day school. I, I did feel in that sort of first day of school moment that I was getting some of those inside out vibes that you're talking about where it's sort of, like they have managed to metastasized the most vulnerable feeling that you can have in your life. That that's scary trust. They of school where like I don't know anybody and everybody hates me. And I'm afraid and I miss everything. Is comfortable around me and they zero in on it, and they show it to you through the eyes of a little kid. And you immediately feel a recognition. That is a storytelling power. That is often overstated about Pixar allow me to overstate at wants more like it's amazing how they manage to locate and isolate those feelings and show them to you on screen, and make you relate to them like I am consistently blown away by that. There's another one at the end, when there's the kid lost at the fair, you know, she's just sort of there's a little girl, and she's crammed between, you know, to food carts or whatever, and she's crying and like, yeah, it's the exact same feeling and I yeah, there's a conversation also I think it's between Woody and four key. And like I think what he says, like, you know, these kids like you watch them grow up and become a person. And then they leave, you know, they'll do things you'll never see like the whole point of these movies is that the toys realized that one day, they'll be abandoned. You know, one day, they'll fall out a favor and one day, the kids will run off without them and won't need them anymore. That's, that's not even subtexts. Like that's just that's exa-. Exactly how parents feel watching these movies, you know, I think that's always there. And it is really striking. You know, I mean, this is possibly the best movie I've ever seen with the numeral four in it. You know what I'm saying? As you as you said, like I understand sort of the dismay, or at least a concern that Pixar has become by and large, like a sequel factory, you know, but I I I didn't dislike incredible to at all. But like I felt like certainly this was a better sequel than any of the other sequels that we've had this year. Obviously, you've been talking about how terrible and how sort of lifeless, they are like this is just a one eighty from that. Yeah. They staved it off. It's, it's a pretty impressive single-handed job in a in a friend summer from hell for this movie to come along and, and gay ever. So briefly, I think I think pause things one thing, that's notable too, is, you know, we're talking about the human emotion that they're able to imbue into these films and into these characters in the movies directed by Josh Cooley, who is. Essentially a first time Pixar director, though. He's worked for the company for a while and the screenplay has two people credited, but the story has two four six eight people credited and it's a complicated list of people. I'm going to read it to you really quickly story by John Lasseter Rashida Jones will McCormack Josh Cooley. Valerie LaPointe, Martin Hines, Stephanie, fulsome, and Andrew Stanton. Now, the last two people are the official authors of the screenplay famously when this movie came together, Rashida Jones and will McCormack her writing partner were brought on board to write it, and they eventually left the project because they felt like they were not as open minded about new voices, particularly a woman of color talking about the way to tell these stories for Pixar Pixar, very famously has had some fraught history with, with John Lasseter, one of its co founders chief imagine ear for a number of years due to sexual misconduct allegations. And the company has I, I would say affectively weathered the. Storm, whatever that can mean an has moved on from Lassiter, who I believe is most recently appointed to a position on inside of sky dance, and they're animated division of paramount, but it's so strange to have an event like that happening
Israel's Netanyahu wins re-election, main challenger concedes defeat
"History is littered with great political comeback fodders. You think of Churchill Menzies do goal Nixon John Howard here in Australia by Japan Mahattaya in Malaysia well at Benjamin Netanyahu to the list region off time and again and against all the odds. He's bounceback with tremendous force to win a fifth term as Israel's prime minister now to he more about Netanyahu's triumph, and what it means for the Middle East. Let's he from one of Israel's most prominent commentators Yari is an Israel by Philo at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. He's author of among other books toward Israel Palestinian disengagement. I heard welcome to IB radio. Thank you for having. How do you account for Netanyahu's victory? Well, number one is to us. Over these comes to running election campaign and years, the manage the compaign alone single handed with a bunch of twenty five year old. Kids who were doing the social media for him. But the main polls is probably the fact that the majority if we want of the Israeli voters in that make me on Yahoo has heavies Dayton called and be charged with corruption breach of its then that team do that. And let's see what the decision of the court is. But in the meantime, according to the Israeli low lasts long before stepping Netanyahu became prime minister. He's allowed to stay in office until convicted at the last instance of the supreme court just. Oh. He's been accused of accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts in exchange for five years as well as cutting Elissa deals with media publishes now what he have to deal with these in Lockley document by this attorney general in Israel on charges of robbery and fraud. He has a there will be Irie. Which is the the is system. The lawyers Donyo will have the option to present the case of the defense to the attorney general, and then he has to make a decision on whether to press charges and exactly what charges had cases befall politicians in which the hearing change the decision of the general. So he denies wrongdoing, but he might have to step down as he fought the charges, but couldn't Yahoo push legislation grinding immunity to a sitting prime minister that's conceivable, isn't it. Oh, no. Netanyahu, according to Israel. You know, does not have to set down. And in fact, before foaming is next government the coalition government. He's going to secure the commitment of all these potential partners that the current low will be respected that means that baby can stay by means there and at the same time face trial. This is the low by the way, this low is exclusively for four prime ministers. It doesn't apply to ministers members of parliament, etc. Kinda victory some site that he's close relationship with President Trump helped. And if you think about Trump's coal for a US embassy in Jerusalem, US recognition of Israel sovereignty in the goal and hearts stash with Syria and the designation just last week of Iran's Islamic revolutionary guard corps as a terror organization to what extent to that. All of that help Netanyahu secure a fifth term. I think it does Netanyahu. That is is. His generally, including many of those who despised and we'd like to see him gone. They only create his qualities as an international statement. And I would like to point out if I may that even more than Trump, it is is close relationship with letting Putin that help begin because he's to today's early that he's in the position to have the air force start consistently against Iranian targets in Syria. And Mr Putin does not do anything to stop it. Although he has the air force. And the defense batteries underground in Syria that is intriguing because baby Netanyahu has also reached out to many of the SUNY Arabs in the Gulf states, and of course agent and clearly that move is primarily motivated by a joint fear of Iran. On. But you're saying that Netanyahu's close relationship with Putin also helps even though Putin is supporting Iran. Yes. But I think that what we see here is a balancing act played by to hidden in which you baby for over three news. Now, he has if you won't air force to go after the Iranians in Syria, hundreds and hundreds of strikes at the same time. He's using the Iranian issue theory. You know, the to the. The reverence there. So this is sort of hippie poop Putin game, which is going on. You've mentioned the relationship that BB has developed the Sunni Arab states, mainly the Gulf mainly Saudi Arabia and the United Emirates DC's for many in Israel. This is. Proof and everything that he's doctrine is working. And he's Dr knees, very simple. He says things the Palestinians are not willing to ever deal with for the foreseeable future. And that's the case this accepted by the majority of these. He says developed now relationship with the rest of the Arbor. So that later on maybe the students in soften their position and become possible. This works with Israeli public opinion. My guess is our hood Yari. He's a Middle East commentator for his Riley television, the more than four decades. And we're talking about baby Netanyahu shelled to be Israel's longest serving later back to Netanyahu. He's Wally believed to be smug and vindictive you account, the he's remarkable ability to overcome setbacks time, and again, I I know. Oh, be for many years. Politically is very very agile, very creative and innovative. He is an master of tricks, including Dietrich's, which are not in the political book of Israeli politics. He is a guy who doesn't have close friends is a guy who doesn't have people whom he really trust. But he's the guy who's trusted by many. So every everybody knows that the he's in a way a tricky BB. But people say who else do we have do we have a real alternative to be the moment the three ex-chief so fan stuff? We've new Bruin white poppy manage to beat these electorate and that they are not obsolete. And this is a good party reason why be one again. Really against all. Yes. And you say he's the master of dirty tricks babies. Also, the master of wrongfooting his opponents, if you think about the opposition live party creek me if I'm wrong, I think I've ruled Israel for most of its first three decades yet lie. I only want about five percent of the vote. How do you account for lives dramatic decline in Israel? Labor was decimated was gradually destroyed by deals local of ninety three they upset to these early public. We can have with the Palestinians. We could make peace late Prime Minister Rabin appeal by everybody and the late Chiba Perez and things early public by now could be that that was the wrong approach. So the labor party's paying the price. And what you have now a needs that even the people those ships are excerpts of stuff ran against to be now. And called a very very fine result. They were very careful not to say that they are left. It's a bed. World news any politics after flow be very careful not to say that they support a Palestinian state any foreseeable future. Your critic your critics Netanya his critics who had died side that Israel is on a trajectory to become an apartheid stidham bit. Lock the foam, South Africa Palestinians will eventually be a majority, but without the raw of citizens. This is Jonathan Freedland in the God. And he says that Netanyahu's re election heralds the further undermining of the rule of law including threats to the occupied Boyce Bank. How would you respond to those concerns? I it's not the first time that I disagree entirely with will ever Mr. three hundred writing, but Israel is not going to move to a next West Bank. And to assume that the only solution that we have inside is a one St. in which the Palestinians, do not be granted, equal rights is simply out of sync with was Israel is that same into that voted be Becky office. You'll have a it eighty five percent majority for two states Aleutian. Of course, once the Palestinians, Alrighty, finally to go for you have a solid eighty eighty five percent majority against on exertion of even parts of the west thing at cetera et cetera et cetera defect that we are not going to have tomorrow. The fact that the may not be Mr.. Now's first priority. Now does not mean that we are down leaper slope of going to watch date. That's something which is not going to happen knowing my country for what it is.
