"In today's episode. We're talking with our special guests Sarah to talk with us about civic hacking gene. Sarah can you give a brief introduction of who you are what you do. And what your favorite happier beverages. Yeah so I'm Sarah You I'm a UI engineer. At linked in I work on the economic graph team. And I also work for like a civic hacking project which we'll talk about here and my favorite beverage is gin and tonic because tend to get flushed when I drink. And it's like the safest thing for me to drink the clear booze. Yes all right. Well let's also go around the table and given reduction of today's panelists Mars. You WanNa start it off sure. I'm Mars Julian. I'm a front end. Software engineer and thoughts are my own stacy. London I'm a senior Eh. An engineer at it lasts all thoughts of mine are Mars is actually. I'm Augusta soon. I'm a software engineer. Twitch yeah just have thoughts the young senior software engineer and Netflix. Nine Ryan Burgess. I'm soffer engineering manager at Net flicks. I don't know who owns my thoughts in in each episode of the Front End. Happy our podcast. We like to choose a keyword that if it's mentioned at all in the podcast all take a drink. What did we decide? Today's keyword is volunteering being volunteering. So we say the word volunteer volunteering. We will all take a drink. Let's jump right in. I I'm curious. What is the definition nation of civic hacking? Yeah so I mean I think there's a dictionary definition and like the what it means to me and I think the dictionary definition is just like applying applying technology to issues in the civic space. Whether or not whether it be government or nonprofits or other issues for me personally really. It's means like working on a project that you genuinely believe will make things better and that's kind of how I view it because it's a little more flexible flexible that way and does it mean you're doing it without pay. This is that kind of typical. I mean that's like definitely a tricky. It's a line. I know a lot of people well who've been able to kind of turn their projects into sort of money In various ways for me. Personally I I like volunteer in my free time. I don't get paid. I get paid perfectly fine in my job so this is something that I kinda WanNa do. You know in my life free time so that makes a lot of cheers. I didn't realize it goes. I've always thought it is is being able to kind of give up basically talent that you have and being able to apply it to whether making others lives easier better but yeah to me it comes comes down to the Nice v word. I am trying to think of another word more but it your time. You're giving up my time to to help others and I think that's I. I've always kind of thought of it is on to. I think it's interesting too that it's called well a lot of people think of it a civic hacking because it seems to me that a lot of the processes that we learn at our jobs are very applicable to this work as well. I don't know if maybe that's just hacking sounds exciting But it it definitely seems the quality of the work is just as high as at some other other places at least from what I've heard. Yeah I think hacking kind of takes a bit of the pressure off. Maybe maybe that's why people use that term because I think the expectation is that like back again. You're volunteering your time and your skills and you can like put in as much effort as you can give like to the project project. What kind of like what you said to says that? You're you're working your fulltime job at linked in this is even on top of that you have projects. You're working outside of it and I think that's that is Kinda what Mars is saying is you're taking the skill set and applying it and being able to leverage it does the hacking thing kind of maybe also indicate like maybe there's an existing thing and you're just sort of incrementally improving it and doing kind of quickly but it doesn't necessarily mean it has like all the things that you would put in place for say like incredibly strong production ready software but it's still useful more beneficial because it helps. Yeah I've found like working on this project to be really freeing honestly because yeah you have more space to have things ship and not be perfect and also you can take more risks with it and I think that was like back of an unexpected sort of outlet for me that I didn't anticipate when I started which is really nice so I was like. You're on a typical project that you're working on loved kind of hear about the project but also like what kind of projects does that entail. What is civic hacking like? What are typical projects that kind of fit in the world of civic hockey? Sure so like the project that I work on personally It's related It's called web monitoring it's part of the Environmental Data Governance Initiative and basically you what it does is it basically tracks changes made to government websites We essentially showed tiffs that analysts actually review on. I'm to see if any sort of meaningful things are happening in the administration that they're not necessarily you know surfacing to the public so we've like This project is found a lot of interesting things. One is that vote the term climate change and other related terms are sort of systematically beings removed from EPA and other websites They're sort of isolating pages. They're not necessarily deleting them but they're removing references assist to these pages so essentially they're dead but when you delete something I assume. There's like more of a connotations. This is kind of a more subtle way to make sure that the people don't necessarily find this information it's not in the primary navigation anymore. It's just like an orphan. Page xactly I guess the only way you're finding finding is probably seo or like a site crawler which suming that's kind of what you're probably using for the project to. Yeah so this also partners with like the Internet archive so yeah. Yeah so like sort of works in tandem. I don't work as much on that side. I work more on building out the UI that analysts actually used to find the pages and and basically create a packet of of Findings that they give to journalists to report on to kind of show let the public know like what is happening. What else kind of fits into a civic hacking project like is there? Is there a type of project that defines out or as we mentioned volunteering. Lean cheers not just define it. I mean I think again like so. There are a lot of different projects There there are a lot of projects that partner with local government. There are a lot of projects that partner with nonprofits but I've even seen people who've developed relationships with like say local businesses or local like You know social like organizations and like built out technology for them like on a personal basis and for me that it also includes that kind kind of work so the project I'm on like is through code for America in there like a set number of projects that are basically like hosted in that space like on Wednesdays so but there's a lot of ways to find projects so I'm curious for the rest of the panelists. Have any of you actually done any outside especially outside work. I think that's a good way to look at it too. Is that where you're giving up your time and applying your skills have you. Have you done anything like that. I don't know if this qualifies a civic hacking or not So so I did a hacker thon In Gem also did this at any cannons and it was a day to Kinda help kind of push through some of the ideas that they have to help survivors of abuse. And kind of come up with a either code to solve that problem or your help. Help get those ideas more defined wind

Trump confirms he called off a military strike on Iran
"On Thursday night. President Trump made a last minute decision to call off retaliatory strikes against Iran, which were in response to the downing of navy drone that Washington said was over international airspace. All this follows recent attacks on oil tankers in the strait of Hormuz. The Iranians have denied responsibility for those is America going to war with Iran here to tell us more as Toby Harsha, a national security writer for Bloomberg opinion. So Toby does President Trump's decision to abort the? Mission and tell the world about it cause any problems, it causes problems that could also bring advantages, I think the biggest problem is that it shows potentially huge division within the White House, and that is not something, you want to have happen. And not something you want to project to the world. We know that the president's advisors are split generally in terms of how aggressive an approach we take John Bolton. The national security advisor wants it to be as tough as possible. Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state wants to peddle a little more softly. So the Iranians claim the drone strike was deliberate, but they say the drone was in Iranian airspace. If you know what is their reasoning? Why would they decide to shoot down a drone first of all the airspace thing that would only have been in Iranian airspace, if we had wanted to be there. These are actually. More accurate than manned planes in terms of carrying out missions, their mazing the message that they're sending the same message that they're sending with, you know, attaching these small minds to ships that they've done four times it is to show that they can do it. It's deflects their muscles, and it's to show that they could shut down the street of harm us, if they wanted to it's only twenty one miles across and they with their little speedboats at cetera. Could do it. So it seems clear that President Trump's maximum pressure campaign is not working. What can or should the US do next? It's not working in some senses. It's working very well in others economically, it is absolutely smashing and academy that was already not doing very well. And I think that's one of the reasons we're seeing all of that what we do next is, I would hope move very, very cautiously. We could the US could say. Say that, you know, we had the power to do this. We chose to be merciful. And so we win on both counts, the alternate side, is that we end up that the US ends up looking indecisive and weak. I would hold off on any further attacks. Let this speak for itself, and see how it plays out. I think the Iranians have made a lot of mistakes that could bring the European allies who've been wavering back on the US side. And I think if the whole world is allied against Iran, that's going to create a real problem for them, even if it's just symbolically, but we're gonna have to start escorting ships in and out of the straight in and out of possibly the entire Persian. Gulf, the US did this back during the Iran Iraq war. We could ask some of our allies to assist in that they just really don't have the navy's that we have, I think that France has about twenty ships that would be appropriate for this. None of them in the Gulf, the US coastguard alone has six times that many, so there's really just no other navy that can do this. Maybe they could make a symbolic show the way that the French our by having sent their aircraft carrier down there. But the heavy lifting all gonna go the US, what military options are being. Considered well, actually going ahead with this strike is probably the big one where Suming that the strike was simply going to hit the battery that, that missile was fired from that took down the drowned. They could do that. They could hit a series of batteries. They could go a little bit. They could ramp it up a little bit by striking other barracks. And things like that of the, the revolutionary guard corps, which was responsible for all of this after that. I don't know after that it gets very, very scary. The only upgrade from that is a low
Is 5G safe? (The 3:59, Ep. 575)
"The. Welcome to the three fifty nine or about your chain actor, five Jeep promises to radically change your lives, giving us a lightning fast connection potentially powering everything around us. But there's always been a lingering concern about five and cellular signals general. It's really the concern about whether or not, this is actually dangerous after all uses higher frequency radio airwaves five particular will require a lot more cell towers around you that's making people really nervous. So we had our own Maggie ridden breakdown this issue. And well, it's complicated. Technically, all this radiation, really any heat that we give off considered radiation, but cell signals including five G don't fall into that spectrum of harmful radiation, that would actually breakdown, your yourself something like something you'd find with an x Ray or a nuclear power plant, so no studies found a direct link between cell phones and cancer or fertility or any other kind of health issues. But there's a big but is that the World Health Organization sort of left open the? Ability that are f- signals are causing genyk critics say that. They're just haven't been enough adequate studies to prove that science. You need a lot of studies, you need to have different variables taken out of the equation. You can't be like okay, all we're going to do you're going to be subject to five waves, as opposed to WI fi, microwaves or any of those other items or even other people who are radiating heat. So there's lots of different factors on this. So it's just flat out scientists take a lot of time to figure this out, but at times, figured out, sixty will be here. Right. I think that's the big problem. I think this is an issue had with cell cell phone service generals. We don't have five note tests on by the time we do have the network to get those adequate tests were already years into five G exposure, and everyone sort of moved on. Right. And so, yeah, there really isn't sorry, say there isn't a clear. Answer is whether or not it's dangerous. We get we only know that it might be. Yeah. Maybe not I'm leaning towards probably as dangerous as four G bribing, assuming four. Gee is dangerous. That's the thing right there. No say's have really conclusively linked four G to anything. And so the World Health Organization has left open calls it a potentially carcinogenic cereal. But they also say coffee and pickled vegetables and also heard burnt ends can cause. Yeah. All kinds of different things that can be related to cancer or at least be connected to a next up YouTube may face fines from investigation by the Federal Trade Commission, according to the Washington Post YouTube is already reconsidering changing big Elms of service, including the algorithm that recommends what you watch next part of this bigger bait scrutiny over the, you know how it manages content, whether what the balance is between freedom of speech versus potentially harmful content, and this particular case is talking about the child the Coppola where it comes to collect data from children under thirteen without parental consent FTC had an issue with tick tock tick tock that musically. And they actually settled for a s- fine of five point seven million dollars, which at the time was the largest finally settled, if the FTC is looking into YouTube, and they have to figure out kind of some kind of settlement of Suming, this kind of violation of this law, this kind of settlement might be very, very, very, very large. Yes. If, if I boy, seven's a drop in the bucket for for you to take talks a small. Company, probably a bigger blow for them. But yeah, you can imagine this fine would be a lot more significant. Last-minute Mitee, study out says that it can use to figure out how pizzas made is keep breakdown, how this would work. Yes. So this, this. It's using neural networks and what it does taking this giant collection of images of pizzas from Instagram. What this tool can do it can deconstruct piece from layer to layer, two layer two layers can figure out the topping the cheese, the sauce and the way it was the cross was cooked. So that seems a little bit nuts. And I was looking at see what other applications are in the study, they mentioned this could be good for salads, hamburgers sandwiches, but other applications outside of food would be digital fashion shopping assistance shirt, under that blazer.

Amazon's Ring cameras are building out surveillance for police (The 3:59, Ep. 566)
"The. Welcome to three fifty nine. I'm Joanie Saltzman, Alford. Ing, Amazon's ring smart home doorbells are helping police departments build surveillance networks, right from your neighbors front doors police departments across the country and major cities like Houston down to smaller towns with fewer than thirty thousand people have offered free or discounted ring doorbells to citizens. Sometimes using taxpayer funds to pay for the products. Ring owners are supposed to have the choice of providing police footage. But in some cases, the giveaways come with the stipulation that you have to turn over footage to police requested Alfred talks about what's going on here. Yeah. So a lot of people by rings very popular. They think that will help them. Stop package thieves or find somebody suspicious in your neighborhood and you think, oh, well, if it's just facing up, my doorstep, it's not really anything affecting me or my neighbors, until you realize that your neighbor across the street, also has this ring, and it's facing your house, and it can. Get footage of you and just build that out to your entire neighborhood because that's what it is for a lot of for a lot of police departments. Now they've been seeing that residents have ring so they call up Amazon, and they partner with them in this program called neighbors, which is less social media app available. It's kind of like next door where, you know it's just among your neighbors, and you post footage up. They're like, hey, look look at this person stealing packages watch out for him now when police partner with Amazon, they're allowed to request for footage directly from people so they can kinda put a GIO fence around, like a block, or something like that say, hey, we've been looking for this guy. We believe he's around here, can you send us kind of footage? That's supposed to be optional. But the problem is in some giveaways. The requirements are there are strings attached. Hey, like when we asked for footage, you're giving this to us, that's because we gave you this camera for free, and essentially, that's kind of setting up like a an open surveillance network for a lot of police officers who were never able to get cameras in these places. You know, when you get a security camera, that's usually for like a city or a big area not, you know on your block, and now they have it in, you know, these residential areas that they never really had surveillance footage of before. Well is the shock as reporting, this was shocking thing I think that's the MO the biggest thing that stuck out to me was just how much money Amazon is making off of this. So when you have a ring camera, you don't have to plan for it, but it's basically you don't you can't store any footage. Otherwise, you can just see, like alive, you, but you can save that video. So it's kinda useless unless you get subscription. The cheapest one starts at three dollars a month. And so, in some cases, Amazon will give these cameras away for free or heavily subsidize it. Because it's kind of this model of, like we're going to sell the the blade not the razors. The. I don't know. So in one case where they donated about, like eighteen thousand dollars to one town in subsidies. It turns out that, you know, they gave out six hundred cameras in that town. They can make all that money back in less than ten months, and then just continue to see their profits rise from that. So, you know, it's police like Amazon is asking police and do you wanna partner with us? And then police then go to residents. Do you wanna buy this, Amazon product, right? It's weird. Yeah. And all the money just goes back to him as on. Right. We also have an interview with Sony's, PlayStation CEO are e insure interviewed the CEO, and found out that game console maker is vowing to release have shared saved games backwards. Compatibility and more on its upcoming console often referred to as the PS five unofficially. Yes. So I mean, just trajectory wise, you know, it's probably going to be the PS five, they haven't said anything about that, but yeah, the CEO Jim Ryan this first interview since he started. In April, and he talked about how, you know, cloud gaming is gonna be the big thing Google with their stadia pitch is kind of moving toward that, too. They you might be able to play more games with your friends on XBox. And we might be able to play more games with just people on your old consulate. You might not even have to get the new PS five to play with your friends on that consulate Suming. That's its name a grant feature. We don't have all to play the council.

Trump may have made it more difficult for the US to 'win' its trade war with China
"Washington. President Trump says the US would raise tariffs from ten percent to twenty five percent on more than two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese goods and increase would take affect at twelve. Oh one tomorrow morning unless. Settlement can be reached the threat following charges that Beijing has been trying to backpedal and essentially renegotiate earlier greets. But in the meeting with reporters at the White House earlier today, President Trump also indicated that he received what he described as a beautiful letter from the Chinese president Xi Jinping and would probably speak to him as negotiations continue more from the White House, the vice premiers coming here today, we were getting very close to a deal, then they started to renegotiate the deal. We can't have that. We can't have that. So our country can take one hundred twenty billion dollars a year and tariffs paid for mostly by China, by the way, not by a lot of people try and steer it in a different direction really paid out of his faith for by largely by China. I'm businesses will pour back into our country. So instead of making the product it'll be the old-fashioned way the way we used to do we made our own product. And I think things are going along pretty well. But a large group delegation headed by one of the most respected men. Highest officials of China will be coming in today. They started five o'clock, and they'll see what they can do. But our alternative is is an excellent one. It's an alternative. I've spoken about for years. We'll take in well over one hundred billion dollars a year, we never took in ten cents from China nut ten cents, and it'll be a I think it'll be a very strong day, frankly, but we'll see it was their idea to come back. Just wrote me a beautiful letter just received it and I'll probably speak to him by phone. But look we have two great alternates. Our country is doing fantastically. Well, our numbers at three point two. Don't forget three point to the first quarter is always by far the worst quarter, or at least almost always you look back over the years. First quarter is always weekend. We had three point two GDP. Our unemployment numbers of the best in the history of our country. And we're doing well companies are really doing well, even in Ohio the great state of Ohio yesterday General Motors at my verse stronger jink to put it mildly, very stronger. I wasn't even nice about it. But I appreciate what they did. They sold the the beautiful plant Lordstown they sell that beautiful plant to very very good company that's gonna make electric trucks and that work because I was the only thing they could say about our whole economy Lordstown, they kept saying Lord style Lordstown. And when you had all these great companies spending, billions and billions of dollars coming into our country. They couldn't talk about it. That only mention the one plant. That was a GM plant from a very long time ago. And now, we have a great company going and going to make electric trucks, very appropriate. Those remarks by the president earlier today at the White House and joining us on the phone here in Washington as Bob Davis. He is senior editor for the Wall Street Journal, and can you walk us through specifically the issues on the table between the United States and China? Well, you know, now there's one big issue one big issue. And that is whether the US will go ahead and raise tariffs on Chinese goods, two hundred dollars of Chinese goods. From ten percent to twenty five percent. That is the issue that is dwarfed all the substantive issues that have come before it from China's point of view. Tariffs go into effect. They'll they'll be forced to retaliate if they do that. We're down further down a rabbit hole. This could really create a trade war between the two leading economies of the world. We've been on the edge of a trade war. This is like in trade terms, like high noon, I mean, you know, this is bad as as fraud moment as you get in trade negotiations. So how did they resolve this? Well, one or two ways the Chinese come with concessions that the US considers to be significant enough to either hold off tariffs or to just put tariffs in place for a period of time while they work out work out a deal and get back to this substantive issues that divide in Asians, or you know, it doesn't work out. I mean that the tax go in and we're in for a long period of. Very. Problematic economic news and get these are tariffs that obviously American consumers would see and feel every day the president often mentions the stock market and we've seen some wild moves over the last couple of days because of the uncertainties so where does that put the president? Well, president is a guy who believes in tariffs he calls himself tariff. Man, I think that is actually the way he thinks about things. I think if the market I think the markets had Sumed has had many other people that we were on the road to a deal if it becomes if the talks fell apart and tariffs are put in place in look like me and place for for a long period of time. I would imagine Mark through react very negatively. And then we'll take a look and see how much same power. The president has the face of falling stock market. We're talking with Bob Davis senior editor for the Wall Street Journal does this potentially have any impact on inflation. Possibly probably not. I mean, you know, so we're talking about. Increasing tariffs on two hundred billion dollars of goods from ten percent to twenty five percent. The types of goods that we're talking about on for the most part aren't the sort of things you seem WalMart. I mean, they're they tend to be electron of components mechanical parts, you know, things that go into other things. So yeah, I mean go up, but it'll be hard on a machinery on a piece of machinery to tell. You know, how much of that is from a tariff on the other hand if the president the president is increases threats today, and he's said that they're starting the process of. Of imposing tariffs on three hundred and twenty five billion dollars worth of goods. That's so far haven't been subject to tariffs. And those are the things that Americans buy all the time in WalMart and other stores like iphones and cell phones and clothing there, you, you know, I don't know if it's a big enough impact to to affect the consumer price index overall, but you'll see it. I mean, if you're consumer you'll notice it if the price of an iphone goes up twenty percent because of a tariff, that's not something you're gonna miss and two key players on the US side. The Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin part of these negotiations into the evening, and Robert lighthizer who is a presence top trade negotiator. What can you tell us about these two individuals -pointment as it might be in terms of trade with China? Well, I mean, they very different outlooks and represent very different constituencies. So lighthizer trade Representative is is a longtime China Hawke who largely wanted the USC our job. So he kid finally get a chance to take on China. And try to write what he felt were the wrong that China was committing economically. He pushes his heart as he can harder. I would say the president for a tough deal that would fundamentally change Chinese economic policies. The Treasury Secretary has a different portfolio. I mean, he is portfolio is keeping the US economy humming along in the global economy, you know, few problems as it can have. So he's been pushing much more for a deal. He is kind of a dove in the, you know, in this bifurcated world while visors hawk one thing to note is that the Chinese Trayvon boy a guy named Lou her is meeting today having dinner tonight only with lighthizer not with Mnuchin, which is different than the way. It's been in the
Understanding the Needs of Low-Income Consumers in Emerging Markets
"My presence here is to launch would use Dent's. You know, our third case study together as you remember, you know, this is third case. The following the first one. On Uganda with vanilla and the second one that was mainly understanding the consumer needs in India and the key theme across the three case. Studies is mainly understanding better. The needs of low income consumers in emerging markets in order to tackle them with serious business opportunities. So my primary objective is launching this third case study that is all about, you know, the new sanitation approach the second key priority for me is to engage your students with our inclusive capitalism. Business model we believe in this inclusive capitalist business model we feel it's very relevant for the twenty first century. And that's why I will take this opportunity to promote this inclusive capitalism. Business model with your students because the way. Look at your students. Unity's will be the future CFO's of the global corporations. Your water is very well renowned for its capabilities and its lead in finance. And you know, I am Suming that, you know, most of these future leaders, you know, will end up being the CFO's of the global corporations and the third key objective for me is to showcase how businesses could leverage their knowledge and uniform at Firminy our science in all the to address key societal challenges and save lives. So these would be my three key objectives in my dress with your team this afternoon. I mean from my students perspective is really very important that we don't just analyze one case that you mentioned the three case that is because they give a continuity a better understanding of transformation. Fewer manage has been going. For a number of years and in the process, really not only just developing. Let's call the new business models or entering new markets. But creating new industries, and this what I think is very important. I appreciate your appreciation for the financial knowledge to the students will get here. But I hope the more they get exposed to this real life things that they will in the sand that traditional ways of over emphasizing the financial aspect of the operations has to be in reached by by something more that also provides the -bility for the company to engage as you said, you know, inclusive capitalism is a broader topic for discussion. You are in a unique position. I mean as a person very successful businessperson coming from publicly traded company now working. With the family owned company. What is your experience, and what are the key advantages? This kind of ownership provides four in a sense of repositioning the company in be what it is. Now, really one of the leaders in this new understanding of capitalism and marketing Konami should. Yep. You're right. You know, I think the fact that I worked for twenty one years for Republic to company that is the Jude word alcohol in the world leader in beverage alcohol. And now, I've been the CEO firm niche for almost five years it gives me a completely different perspective. Because then I have the to see the business to consumer. And now, it's the B two B business to business and at the same time the fact that, you know, working for publicly quoted companies and working for private companies. I think the advantage of Firminy is. We have the governors of a publicly quoted company while being private company. So we combine the best of both words the rigor an accountability of publicly quoted companies with a passion and medium to long-term vision of private companies. And I think this combination is very powerful, and is enabling us to stand out as leaders in our industry. I mean when we were working on the first case study in India, and how you engage low income consumers. What was very fascinating for my students was to understand that in the process, you're basically creating drops for young people in India in also with all your expertise in emerging economies. You also Bill very strong partnership with the local NGOs. So that your engagement reflect the reality. On the ground. So to what extent this issue of drop creation as an important part of your overall strategy when you engage in emerging economies. This is critical and it goes back to role of business in what is the role of business? The role of business is create jobs uncover opportunity through innovation and create new consumption occasions and at the same time pay taxes and the job creation is critical because this is how you're offering Oprah -tunities for youth in these markets and giving them springboard to a better life, especially if they are coming from emerging markets, and in the context of drop creation and leadership. I argue is also I think very important issues of woman particularly girl empowerment, what is your experience in that space, and what other companies can learn from that. Our experience on women empowerment and equality is huge would say because it touches every facet of our business. Not only internally with firm nation, but also with our suppliers, and I will take some time to share with you our inroads in this space. Now when you look at my executive comedy the team that runs furnished globally one third of my executive committee are female and three ladies on. My executive have been appointed by me since I took over I can tell you. My exac today where I have eight colleagues, you know, with having three female colleagues have is far more impactful and effective than it were done. This exact was in the past, and it's not only gender diversity because I have three out of eight female, but more. Most importantly, I have seven different nationalities on my exac. So they bring a completely different perspective, and they make the discussion far richer more inclusive and more complete and it is reflected in the impact of the business at the same time. Internally forty percent of our leadership team across the company are women and forty percent of our employee base are women, which means that our women colleagues are very well represented in the leadership of the company most importantly firmly. She was the first company in our industry and one of only seven companies in the world to receive last year in twenty eight equal gender certification globally. So and this from edge, and you have only seven companies in the world that received this equal gender certification. This is not easy. This is an equal employer gender certification globally because we are operating in one hundred countries we have sixty three feels we are thirty
"suming" Discussed on The Short Porch
"I'm gonna I was gonna say none of them like our tation if Suming that the pitching like this right now, you know, there with Paxton healthy five good starters, plus Severino. Montgomery still lasagna and was on you. Right. I don't really consider. He's not someone I trust reluctant still guy. You could start though in random guy. Yeah. But he I would take those guys over him if if John was fifth starter then. Yeah, I'd be look which he is right now. But if we have started for an extended period of time right now, definitely working for a starter like one of those guys listed. But now, I don't think they should be looking for a start line. They're like we said, they're they're going to have so many guys come back. It's going to be like those other deadline, acquisitions, I don't think tank will be that active at the trade deadline unless they are still this hurt. What whatever does done for the year. And you know, these guys are healthy. Yeah. Then maybe, but I don't wanna give up because none of those guys are, you know, ace level. I mean, Madison Bumgarner not even anymore is necessarily frontline guys. So I wanna be going crazy with what the pack them. Offering is Sanchez interesting. He does have injuries in his history. Stroman just the big game pitcher. I do like that. Why this Aaron Boone definitively says Mike talk when will not be the casualty for Clint. Frazier. Yeah. So who is? Pitcher other raid, maybe could be a pitcher..
1 in 4 Women Sexually Harassed at Tech Conferences
"New data from in. So no says that one in four women in tech have experienced sexual harassment at a tech conference. They've attended with a severe lack of female attendees at these events. Is it any surprise that? Only. Twenty five percent of speakers are ever women and Sono dove into it all get more from Linnet Klassen. She is head of public cloud product at insole. No and joins us via Skype from Chicago. Highland. Welcome. Hi. So Lynn before we get into some of these findings just from your personal experience at various tech conferences and being in the tech industry as long as you have in. What ways have you been able to notice firsthand how women fits in at these events, and in general, so my personal experience at attending these conferences that oftentimes I'm pretty along at these conferences. And so I actually started. Taking pictures of clean and Mt. Ladies rooms at these conferences, and send them to my friends back in office. It's a way to it's a way to cope with the situation and the and the reality visually. It's it speaks for itself. I'm curious how much this enters into the equation, you know, in working in tag. Do you have to attend many of these conferences is it is it something that just goes with the territory while many of us it is because we often are talking about if you want to be promoted in your career path. You definitely want to show leadership in thought leadership. And I think a lot of time. These are the opportunities for you to you know, to be able to present yourself in a public and fish away. So it is actually quite important in my view. So getting into some of these stats and what we can make of them. Just in general how likely are women to attend. These tech events are is there an average ratio in terms of their general presence. So insole conducted an audit as major conferences for the path three years and found that one in four Keno speakers were women, although this ratio is Representative of the larger tech industry. The ratio of attendees often feels much lower when you are actually in the middle of the conferences. So I think you know, you could actually find a lot of empirical evidence is by looking at pictures taken Ed exhibit halls and auditory or again in my case clean. Mt. Ladies wounds at these conferences, go, right? One thing that's very rampant in the tech community as you know is sexual harassment. There's a lot of claims about general, bro, culture Suming. This is something equally present at these tech industry events. Yes. I wish that data showed otherwise unfortu-. Exactly. Yes. According to the survey conducted by Sono one in four women have experienced sexual harassment at a tech conference because we went in the tech industry. Have started speaking up and taking actions more and more of these conferences actually, have instituted a coda contact that being said more still needs to be done through imported as thirty eight percent of women who have seen a code of conduct at a conference said they have witnessed sexual harassment steal what kinds of things specifically do women encounter at these events. And totally do you know of anything that you can point to any totally because I follow some of the tag people in the industry on Twitter in oftentimes in the we would see tweets from women who have experienced no, these unfortunate incidents at conferences. A while. They were there, for instance, an one. Wanted demands -ment or an the wanted. I guess, you know, in quote treatment of personal space, and or basically we are there to participate in professional events and oftentimes the conversation may veer towards something that's more maybe more of a personal nature. That's really not welcome only twenty five percent Ted conference. Keynote in the past three years. We'll give him by women, and we have to remember that an average number. It means that some conferences had no female keynote speakers and all in Pat three years in Sono also filed a seventy percent of women who have set on the panel was the only woman on that panel. We call that the long woman syndrome. So what does say to women who are just as dedicated and committed as their male counterpart to me it says that we don't belong when we win this. Lack of female representation, we further marginalized, and you know, I don't mean to get on the soapbox. But reprising tation does matter data confirmed that we men want to see ourselves. We have presented again Seventy-six person the women are more likely to attend a conference, featuring a female keynote speaker panelist I just want to be able to share this quote was the audience. So and I really liked this quote because implied power dynamics diversity is being invited to the party in Kuzin is being asked to dance. So having stronger female representation stage is definitely the first step towards true incursion. Also at in Sono, we also look to the future. Most of these Keno speeches live on as videos online most of us, especially younger generation consume content online as videos, so what's? Message sending girls and young women. How do we inspire them to choose a career in technology? You can't be what you can't see. And I believe this is one of the reasons why it is so important that Sonos set out to conduct this research, if we want to change the status quo we need to be able to measure it. I actually think that is a perfect note to end
"suming" Discussed on 90.3 KAZU
"NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro. Audie cornish. When President Trump announced that he was declaring a national emergency at the border with Mexico. He made clear he was expecting a fight in the courts, we will possibly get a bad ruling. And then we'll get another bad ruling, and then will end up in the supreme court, and hopefully we'll get a fair shake several lawsuits have already been filed against administration. One that many are watching for is a suit from the house of representatives one branch of government suing another for some insight into how this might play out. We called Stanley brand he was the general counsel for the house under democratic speaker tip O'Neill and the seventies and eighties. I I asked him. What argument the house could make about how it's been legal terms injured by the president's move. Well, they're injury will be that. Their legislative power has been notified that they passed the law as provided in the constitution by majorities in both houses. They sent it to the president. And he signed it. And he's ignoring it. And he's going around the limitations in law to allocate money for a purpose? They haven't denominated in the legislation. So there's the money part. Would they address the whole idea of whether or not it's an emergency? Well, the the question on whether this is an emergency is a question that goes beyond their their injury. Or they're standing to sue that gets to what we call the merits. And that is is the president's decision. The suming. Legislators have obtained standing is that unconstitutional or illegal as former attorney for the house of representatives. What's it been like for you to watch all of this play out? Well, in one sense, I've been here before when I was council, and when I worked for tip O'Neill, we had something called the War Powers resolution, which was a reaction to the imperial presidency of Richard Nixon and the debate at the time was has congress bypass in the War Powers resolution. In fact, given the president authority he didn't have beforehand which is the thirty to commit US troops to foreign action without a declaration of war or to repel a sudden attack. So this is a history that we've gone through before where congress delegates certain decision making to the president and doesn't specify the limits for that delegation. And then later on there's a fight when he applies it in a way that the congress doesn't like what are you going to be listening for going forward? The department of Justice will raise a host of what we call threshold issues. These are issues that stop you from getting into court at all like standing the other one is ripeness which is essentially the case isn't ready to be decided because no adverse action has happened until the president goes beyond the one point three billion. That was appropriated the department will be able to argue no one's been injured yet because he hasn't spent the money task the amount that the congress provided so there'd be a host of those issues, including statutory issues, like whether the appropriation which provides for military construction can be construed to include aboard fence Stanley brand. Thank you so much for speaking with us. Good to talk to you Stanley brand is the distinguished fellow. So in law and government at Penn State's Dickinson law school today. USA gymnastics named its fourth CEO in less than two years. The new leader of USA gymnastics is Lee Leong she will be leaving job as an executive with the NBA take the role. She's also a former collegiate gymnast reporter Alexandra Starr joins us to talk about her appointment. Hi there. Hi. So USA gymnastics has pretty much been in free-fall since news broke in two thousand sixteen that former team doctor Larry Nassar had molested hundreds of athletes he's now behind bars for life. So where do things stand at USA gymnastics today? Things have been bad. The organization has been leaderless for months in the fall. The US Olympic Committee started the process of decertification that basically meant that USA gymnastics would no longer be the organisation overseeing the sport and then two and a half months ago. USA gymnastics declared bankruptcy that is quite a string of events. What impact of the bankruptcy? Have it? Put the. Dozens of lawsuits that have been filed against the organization on ice. And it also put a halt to the US Olympic Committee's effort to decertify, USA gymnastics. But now the head of the US Olympic Committee says she's very hopeful Leon can turn things around. So it looks like the organization is going to get another chance you've been covering USA gymnastics in-depth, do you think she can turn things around? She certainly saying the right things. This is what she said on a press. Call today. I have glad I have sweated. I have cried alongside my teammates alongside other gentlemen. And it breaks my heart to see the state that the sport is in today. And that is why she says she wants USA gymnastics to be more athletes Centric, and she also pointed to settling lawsuits with Larry Nassar's survivors as one of her top priorities. All that set. The attorney representing most of those fivers was scathing about her appointment. So I we can expect more conflict ahead. So that's what the attorney representing the survivors said has there been much reaction from the survivors themselves. The people who were abused by Larry Nassar, some have been coming forward and saying that they were not consulted on this appointment, and they seem to be arguing at this point that. They're concerned that she is not going to be a real agent of change. Do you think she might have more success than the string of executives who have been cycling through this position? Look, I think she is better prepared for this job. Then the last two people you've seen the last CEO former congresswoman Mary Bono lasted less than a week and the job. So I think she's going to improve on those performances at the same time. The organization has been in such disarray for so long and reforming. It is going to be such a heavy lift we'll have to see if anyone can turn this around. So we'll be watching as we see how she moves forward as we move into. You know, Olympic preparation time just to ask a bigger picture question. Here there will be gymnasts in the United States competing at international levels. Whether or not USA gymnastics as an. Organization survives. Why is it so important for somebody anyone to turn this organization around? That's a good question. Ari? I mean, something that is really remarkable is how extraordinary the women's gymnastics team is. Yeah, they've just one look at them. You know, they've won gold medal after gold medal. They cleaned up at the world championships last year at the same time, this so-called national governing body these USA gymnastics plays a role in developing a pipeline and staging these tournaments and getting people together for these camps. So it's not stuff we'd necessarily see, but it is important work. And I think people who are advocates for the sport really do want.

"So I don't actually not a lot of teams that you look at cross landscape that I would say are better landing spot for his value than San Francisco Suming Jimmy Garoppolo healthy on the Suming all quarterbacks are healthy at this point. Because obviously that can dress the best I can think of is Indianapolis after that. Just because they're passing they're passing. Plus spot to be honest with you because at least they're TY Hilton in Eric Bronner mouths to feed to like, yes, it would be good with Andrew look I see that link. But like. TY homes a really good too. So anything San Francisco he is the like absolute best receiver on the team by far rather the forty Niners desperate for wide receiver. So I can see that t- way arguably atop he's definitely tough fifteen hundred c might be a top ten while You you're see all sitting. I also say the colts, and I hate to keep being a broken record. But they're Cavs pace is so large they can afford him. Plus another extra pass several lot of money to spend. Yes. And that's why I'm saying that's probably attracted spot. He wants to go to because he knows he'll get paid. Yeah. Well, he's paid he country. Yeah. I'm just saying well when the when it's out in easing extension. He knows the colts can promote. But we don't know what the colts Sarko space gonna look like they're gonna waste all of that and a two seasons. But if you go out for two seasons in a row, the your normal with everybody else. It also depends on who's in the free agent market. That's worth that kind of money too. I agree with that. It's just hard to project. What a team sarcastic slupic years, especially considering the fact that in two years Andrew looks contract will be up, and he'll be the highest paid quarterback again in the NFL already once before. And then maybe t y Hilton, and maybe you gotta pay more with MAC, and maybe you gotta pay Darius Leonard who just got all pro rookie linebacker, and then you gotta pay Quentin Nelson because his deal be up after five years the first row shown guard all pro in his own, right? So I mean, but do you really think if Tony if we're guardless it doesn't matter where he goes? Busy as Emma choice is the trade. Yeah. I don't think Ken. Okay. Let me let me ask you this who can offer more colds or the forty nine into Neo Brown. I don't think the stuarts trade him to a team. He's going to you're saying, so yeah. Because they the Steelers are still in the business of winning football games winning championships. Well, we have seen order pretty much falling behind the colts. Like, you're the code. Fortunately for them. They're in the AFC south and they're in the AFC north. Possibilities. It's it's a it's a rival. It's a playoff rival this who if it was between those two just hypothetically, what do you think who can offer more the coal to the four Niners? Well, obviously, the forty Niners can offer them more. I mean, that's not even close. But. I don't know if they will the question is what will be offered. It's not like they say what they're asking for the second pick in the NFL draft. And they have the third excuse me the fourth pick in the second round of the NFL draft the colts have elite for show-me pick and a late second round pick..
A Second Brexit Vote Could Worsen the Chaos Created by the First
"That we should also put no deal leave without a deal on the ballot paper. And so I think we will end up in that place because ultimately the British people need to have a final say they've seen the mess. This created all they show they will to do that. And of course, I will be campaigning hard for us to remain in the European Union. Now, look let me be clear about this not in the status quo the European Union to needs reform. Britain's should be there leading that there are issues in in in Europe about spending, and mommy, and how money is spent there are issues around free movement of people across Europe. Of course, these are issues that Britain can. Lead on. But it's an economic interest to remain in the European Union. The the only thing I can say for certain to you is that I do think that the clock ticking to the twenty ninth of may will not continue, and we will see the end date extended. So obstacle fifty the the the accident comes down that makes us leave your opinion. I suspect we'll get extended through to the summit. That's good. And that will give us more time to argue into fights. But I hope to legislate and create circumstances for a second referendum on whatever deal emerges from UK. Parliament, David we know it's late over there. So desk, you one last question you may have noticed that our government over here in the US is currently shutdown. You guys aren't shooting yourself as directly in the face as we are. But I imagine that the effort to deal with Brexit to manage than Goshi ations with the EU as it's been all. Suming? Can you talk about some of the things that aren't getting done some of the opportunity costs of like having to focus on Justice for two plus years? The key. Connecting thread, hit is the big question is is the Anglo American world in crisis is populism particularly on the right of the spectrum creating an atmosphere. That's toxic where there's a lot of blocks or about immigrants about building walls about shutting people out. But actually, the really she's of the day. How do we deal with automation in our economy? How do we give people jobs where jobs are no longer? How do we educate people in fix our education systems fairly with equity across across our countries. How do we deal with healthcare, and the fact that we're living longer? An and you know, we need to continue to find cures for diseases and give people access to primary healthcare. These issues. All the central issues of all time. And of course, alone site that there are still groups and on society that are discriminated against the funding sells the back of the queue. How do we address those issues with equity those of essential issues that not getting discussed, and actually I think also social media seems to be driving out further and further division, and who is gaining whilst this happens in the Anglo American world. Well, there are certain individuals in the global arena people right flat him at PT in that gaining tremendously and some suggest are behind some of the dischord in our country. And it would seem have co conspirators with them aiding and abetting this because they're making money on the side. That's the central issue. It's happening in the UK. What I would say to friends in America is Lee. East Americans are having the debates about who's pulling the strings here in the UK when not having an honest discussion about how referenda in twenty sixteen was affected who was involved who was engaged wears on. Mula inquiry looking into these issues in the United Kingdom, I'm afraid we've got some real problems, but we've got to work globally progressives to what's gather to to to to to to deal with this and face it down has to be faced down just as it was frankly in the early part of the twentieth century. Well, look, David, we really appreciate this. And I think we may need to hear for your Ken. But I will say that, you know, you're not I've talked about this and some of those people who've made common cause of Putin are in both of our countries. Notably Donald Trump and Nigel Farraj, and and I would add Boris Johnson Thad list. But those people who are looking. In for a forceful progressive voices. Should definitely check out. David who's really emerges, a leader in the labor party in pushing for a second referendum. I think I'll say David, you know, has moved the labor party more forcefully in that direction. Anyone looking for a real concise, yet robust enunciation of Theresa May's Brexit deals at checkout, the speech that David gave in parliament and opposition to that deal. So again glad we could continues confident about both Brexit, and what you just touched upon which is a need for kind of progresses to come together across borders, frankly to push back on some of these right wing, national trends, and yeah, d- we'll have you on call probably David as as Brexit drama continues. Very kind of you look at I was simply trying to replicate. Some of the best of you'll speech. That you wrote for the great badge. So I I really ordered that you set that. And of course, I'm very pleased to speak to you guys
"suming" Discussed on Villains
"Sure of a champ. Well, he'd already established. He's a great screamer when he yelled stop. He has. No, no, you'll stop when he. Stomping on his head. We reject when. Yeah. When he's watching it. That's what you talking about. I don't remember if it was stop or no now, we need to know. But I will I will counter point you here because you're saying like was that yell as good as his crazy. He also in addition to the yell does his own version of the crazy is crazy. I off I think I'm gonna call it a push. I think that they were perfectly match for each. This is a fair fight it. I agree with you on that. Push. Last category. This is my favorite category of other categories called the regrets. Who makes the biggest mistake when dealing with wrongly looking back on a now, failures and obvious. But maybe there's not let me go through them. I've got I've got five of them. Right. Number one. I'm gonna put this because I know this is the one that you're thinking about Ray for not finishing finishing them off when he had the chance and also for goading him in the first place as a big mistake mania. I you poke the bear. And then you turn your back on the bear. This is a bad bad idea. That was a bad idea. A thing that I understand about that. When when I'm watching the fight and he comes on the head, and he falls down two things number one as you mentioned one of the rules, as if you get knocked out the platform, you're out, right? Just push him ocean. That's all you need them. Book an inch away. He's done a little kick that was really bad on raise part. Also, if you watch and you're paying attention raise jumping around and celebrating and he says, he's dead. He's not he's not dead racist bleeding, a little he's not clearly dead that was a bad on. All right. So mistake number one Ray for not finishing off wrongly when he had the chance number two the guy who got killed. Forget it in the ring with them. That's a mistake. Okay. Number three, Frank for Suming that trong Lee wouldn't try to cheat. Yes. That's a good one. That's a big mistake. The council the council for inviting him back after he killed the other guy. This guy's a problem. Do we need to invite him? We've got five hundred eleven other people. Do we need Chongli to five hundred twenty five twelve right and Chongli? I'm gonna blame Chongli for changing his outfit before the championship fight because in every match before then he's got the black pants with the red sash on every single all. Wow. At the end he puts on the red shorts with the Harley bandanna, I feel like after the match. There was definitely a moment where you sit in the locker room. Like fuck, I should've kept my pants. Aac? Yeah. Shouldn't have done that. There's also the one that got well just for mistakes for messing with Chongli the guy who gets his leg broken and cut his right leg in the bone comes out that guy looks a little like take Frazier mistake by hitting him hitting Chung in the face and making him bleed. And that's when Sean Lee. Studes leg-up. And now, he's got a fucking bone sticking out of his leg. If you hadn't hit him in the face. Maybe he would have gone easy on you feel like a lot of the guys who were finished by Chung Chungli brought it on themselves. I feel like they just got to close. You gotta know how to keep your destiny. Lead in the gut. Yeah, they've really as Frank points out to Ray keeps telling them go for his gut. He softened his core. A lot of these guys didn't heed that advice, really bad. So what are we going with for what your pick for who made? The biggest mistake here. I mean, it's it's gotta be right. It's gotta be picking Ray. For me. It's right. Because not only does he tagged is wrongly and not only does he not finished Charlie off when he has a chance. He shoulda died. He definitely should've died. In fact, like I always forget until later in the movie that he doesn't die ends up drinking beer and a hospital with like a bandage on his head. I mean Ray, it's right. Should we talk about like, the Hong Kong medical system that that are just allowing you to drink? Getting these beers study supply or the nurses bring.

"suming" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"And we agreed to last night. I recommend you go and listen to it. It's it's over an hour. But it's worth a listen. I promise here's his to revolt. He sent me this today and said, I want you to talk about this on your show tonight as you got it, so Brian I'm gonna ask you I I would lands. I'm gonna make the statement. And I want you to say whether it's true or whether it's false the statement is if the Steelers beat the patriots on Sunday, they will run the table beat the saints beat the Bengals on route to the playoffs true or false. False. Okay. What do you think's gonna happen? If if they if they were now, we're we're not going into predations yet. We're Suming that they beat the patriots on Sunday. If they beat the patriots lose to the saints in beat the Bengals they're fine. I'm not completely sure about that saints game. But the saints have proven that their Beatles. Well, so they could possibly run the table. I don't you know, what let me change the my answer. True. Do you think? Yeah. I agree. I think that if they beat the patriots on Sunday, and that would be a gigantic monkey off their back, and you ride it all the time slaying the proverbial dragon. That is Tom Brady and the patriots. I think that would be a huge motivation a huge boost think they can go down to New Orleans the New Orleans Saints have not been the same saints. We saw around mid season. They look very beatable and the Pittsburgh Steelers could be getting healthy at the right time. It doesn't look like James Connors gonna play this week. He's missed the last two practices has not practiced at all not even on a limited basis. Therefore, you have to assume that he's not going to be suiting up this Sunday. I think that Mike Tomlin's comments about him earlier in the week. We're nothing, but window-dressing I think now you're looking ahead to Stephen Ridley, Jalen Samuels and a whole lot of passing from rothlisburger. But I think. They absolutely can can run the table. And we're going to talk about this matchup. Mel let's get down to the nitty gritty for those listened regularly. They know how we do it on this show. We absolutely break it down with our three. He matchups say it all the time. These matchups could be very specific player versus player. These matchups could also be very general in terms of maybe pass versus pass defense stuff like that. So don't kill us in the comments action with this that and the other is just how we wanna do it. Okay. We're the host. You're not so deal with it. So he get Jeffrey quick sh-. Sure. Go ahead. Don't add me the I don't have any, bro. Don't adding. Okay. All right. I'm gonna go first because I have one of the top of my head, and I don't want. Bryan, steal it. So I'm gonna go. I in my first matchup. This is in my opinion, possibly the most important Zo. Normally I'd say it's many specific order renting this one is it's Ben Rothlisberger versus himself. That's match of number one for me. Because I said it just a few seconds ago. A whole lot of passing is likely to happen in Heinz field this Sunday in Ben Rothlisberger cannot make those stupid brain for decisions that he has made so many times this season. And I'm kind of getting sick and tired of you know, just Jeremy Fowler today. Wrote an article about how Ben Rothlisberger is the last of the gunslinger quarterback. I don't like that. I I wish that rather St. like that he's a gunslinger I I don't like that mentality..

"Now, you have talked about in the podcast previously that the things that we are Suming right now in this conversation, don't always happen. Like Clemson winning out. Notre Dame winning out. Notre Dame still has to win some games at the end of the season. Like who knows what USC game is. Right. Yeah. So I just think that there's more to this than we think. But I don't think it's a foregone collusion, but Alabama's in if they lose. Now, I don't think they're gonna lose. And I just think we can't were cherry picking things to fit into arguments. Which is obviously that's a that's a fair point. What you're making is that is that it was the situation last year was Alabama being compared to a two loss team. Not a one loss team certainly not to an undefeated Wisconsin, which they would have been if they had one that big ten championship game. And that does change the narrative up going back to what you were saying about the odds to win the national title. I always get in conversations with people about the difference between being able to make the. Playoff and being able to actually win the thing. If you get there, there are some teams that know unquestionably can get there. But are they good enough to win two games against teams of that caliber once they do I think that's where you gotta be careful if you're taking long shots. You know, is it just this is this is not baseball. You know, where I if if you get to that point, you just, you know, have some a couple of pitchers throw well a couple of bags get hot. And you can do it. No. I mean, like, look if Alabama and Clemson are both what we think they are. And they just continue to roll people. I don't know that anybody has a chance against those teams especially not to knock off both of the auto lopsided. You can play out of your position and play the other team money line. So to speak..

"Most efforts in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence of involve trying to detect radio or laser messages that alien civilizations transplant into space. Why not send our own messages? Well done. Most researchers feel that listening for alien messages is a more efficient use of limited funds. But there have been a few small efforts to transmit signals in two thousand seventeen a message was sent by European and American scientists in collaboration with Spain's sonar music festival. There message was transmitted toward a star called lighten star or g j two seven three from a radio telescope dish in Norway. The star is located about twelve light years away and known to be circled by a potentially habitable Exo planet. Call g j two seven three b. Hukou. Scientists devise a message millions might understand would know any human languages. They're researchers devised their message by Suming that the basics of math and physics are universal. The message was encoded as a string of ones and zeros the binary code used by computers. It began with a string of prime numbers. These are numbers that can only be divided by themselves and won this kind of signal couldn't be produced by natural astrophysical processes and could only be produced by intelligent beings. Who know math? The message progress through a series of math and physics concepts culminating in an explanation of the physics of sound and then a series of musical selections from the sonar festival because of the distance the soonest, we could hear reply is twenty four years from now this moment of science comes from Indiana University.

"Maybe it was Austrian bodybuilder, but another bodybuilder on the one scene and it looked good, but they're going for a very specific thing than were they needed to have the young face. Is that like Jeff bridges and Tron legacy? I'm not exactly sure where we always talk about this. I don't know how they did that one. I don't know if they did sound some performance capture of Jeff bridges self, and then massage that look younger, which is also different than like Michael Douglas playing young, Michael Douglas in the waas more Sam Jackson, doing the same thing in upcoming captain marvel like you mentioned this before, but I think that's going to be the most interesting test case that we have the upcoming marvel movie because we're a Suming. We're gonna get like full movie aged Jackson, right? As opposed to most of these endeavors or like you know, thirty seconds minute, something like that where some of that's forgivable and the case of Sam Jackson and Michael Douglas playing their younger selves in these mobile films. I think you're right. That is the more interesting question because they do have their performance relax eight. No, they're actually like themselves and they're portraying themselves. They're not losing any of their own essence or quality. It's just extra makeup acting under a mask, but still you still? No, it's it's them. Whereas when you're talking about performance actor coming in and hired to be the body, essentially an to the audience receives it as another character. That's it feels like a whole different job for better or worse than Andy circus has a lot to say about this stuff because performance actors don't get enough credit and they are acting still. There was a lot of physicality to hear here. All right. On more in the moral universe. Sudden news that iron fist has been cancelled by marvel. Thank goodness. This is a Netflix show. Of course, two seasons. I don't think any of us in this room has watched the second season. I watched the first ten minutes of the second season of the second season, and I was like out in other reviews have been positive. That may be because they are in contrast to our fists in the first season, and also his portrayal in the defenders essential character and defenders. But apparently the second season does end on a really interesting note and fans of the show. However, many there are are a little disappointed that they won't get that story continue. Now, the statement that's come out of marvel net flicks and I'm sure they had the numbers of justify this cancellation is that every this is the end of one chapter, and there's no in so many words. This may not be the end of iron fists. And so if there gets to be a defenders to or maybe he gets rolled into a Luke cage season three for heroes. For higher like these are all potential extensions of the character. They just won't have the responsibility or the privilege of carrying the whole story in their own show, which is, I think a sad fact because the character so interesting. I'm bummed. I, I hope that marvel will just reboot. The the acting was really bad. The writing was bad, so that's just stuff you don't recover from the martial arts or bad? Yeah, those are the three things that character needs and the things that daredevil did. Well, the martial arts, the acting and the writing. Yeah. And the cinematography. Yeah. Yeah. The b squad a little bit. My pitch for iron. Fist, reboot the character. Go back to its martial arts roots. Give me a crouching tiger style movie with his character. Yeah, that's what I want. Yeah. Yeah. Black Panther too, has locked down writer, director, Ryan Kugler. Sweet. And hull reporter says that this probably was negotiated while ago. But now finally being confirmed, made public. Yeah, hope will yet pay while he wasn't paid for the first one. Well, I'm sure he wasn't paid what he generated because that movie made more money than a domestically than Infinity ward. Like it was like a way out seed expectations..

"So like a key meeting with your boss or discussion with your spouse, or if you I've had so many people that are in religious settings, whether it's a funeral or they're in a maybe a religious temple setting or they're in a congregational meeting. And then here comes this leakage. This inappropriate thought pops up and they think, oh my gosh, what is wrong with me? You know, right now what is wrong with me. And so that's the Suming that we should be able to control our thoughts perfectly. So so when that leakage happens, then then here comes this internal struggle where we feel like we should be able to control our thoughts and we should be able to control their emotions when in reality they can just they can just come. So it's basically we start getting angry about something because we're trying to tell ourselves to just put on a happy face and don't think these things suddenly that's all you can think about is that you're thinking these thoughts. And then the worry is I'm gonna unwittingly say the thing that I didn't want to say and. Now talk about drama and chaos on your hands. I've got clients that will tell me that where there to the point where they won't even say anything to someone because they are afraid what if what, if I say this thing, because I'm thinking the thing, I'm probably going to say the thing and the reality is we're all thinking the thing doesn't mean you're going to say the thing. So the tendency to use these types of voidance strategies is associated is again, a Susan David says, is associated with lower wellbeing, poor problem solving in less satisfying, interpersonal relationships. That's fascinating, right? So when we're trying to do these things jumped over to this again, that's part of the happiness. Gab are the confidence gap by the author of the happiness trap where I was going there. But then when he's saying that, okay, I'm trying to challenge dispute the thoughts for evidence to prove they're not true, replacing with more positive thoughts or distract myself, and we're trying those strategies. Then those are the things that are going to using those types of avoidance strategies is associated with lower wellbeing, poor problem solving, satisfying, interpersonal relationships. Study after study shows that it's only when we stop struggling with how we think we should. Should feel. And instead we engage with, we accept we embrace the way that we think are feel our thoughts are motions. And then when we when we brace them when we kind of look at them when we stop beating ourselves up about them when we recognize that these are just thoughts..

All these horses are going to actually race in this race. Does anybody get to choose their horse? Because I would think that the person who won the league last season when choose the horse I and you were that's logical. Of course that's not the way it was done. He randomly assigned numbers and I guess the number is what lane the horses. I don't even. I wish you could call and explain it, but I just don't wanna hear, do not wanna hear his voice, not have him call in here. I am telling you the only person more annoying. Lorenzo's the other TV producer. Well, that's, that's the thing. What is I thought I thought Charlie was the Commissioner of this league. So why is Lorenzo even doing this? I'm super confused as to who's running this league. It seems like the two of them are doing something up there in Washington that just makes everything difficult for everyone else involved. My horse's name is fireball run. Well, it's a good name that is a great name that Stu got your horses name, his warrant warriors up. Sounds like a triple crown winner. The thing about the horses. So thirteen fourteen and fifteen. They don't have a color in their number. So are they racing or are they not? I mean, war agent is twenty to one odds right now, but I can't tell if they're racing or not sounds like the agent. So it's a six thirty two race at Gulfstream..
