And you know weed out what to do and what not to do. And i think it's probably a lot of the misinformation is also probably why people aren't getting the vaccine and this is becoming such a much bigger problem so what's the to feel to feel not.

Some got to some got a high dose. Some aloe does. Although the participants were roughly evenly split between men and women, nearly all the participants were white. As they report in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers found that most adverse reactions to the vaccine were mild and dissipated. Within 24 hours. One participant had a high fever, but it only lasted 12 hours. Younger subjects tended to have more negative reactions to the vaccine. That older ones. Laboratory results showed that most subjects had the kind of immune response that should protect them from disease. 29 days after the first shot, and virtually all showed that response after 57 days But these air just laboratory studies months have slowly with the government's operation warp speed. He said in a press teleconference yesterday that the results from a study involving 45,000 volunteers will be needed to show whether the vaccine actually protects people from disease. That study completed enrollment in mid December. We are very clear that analysis will be completed before the end of the month, the month of January. So, he said. If that analysis shows the vaccine is working as hoped, the Food and Drug Administration could issue an emergency use authorization for the vaccine as soon as February. In its initial projections, Johansson plan to have 12 million doses by the end of February. That's how he said based on the latest estimates he was only expecting doses numbering in the single digit of millions were trying to make that number get as close to a double digit number as possible. And then a larger number in March and a much larger number in April. The good news is theon send vaccine should be rolled out as a single dose vaccine so people won't need to go back for a booster shot as they do with the Moderna and Fizer by on tech vaccines.

I received a gift of having Loofa appear and they've grown has been very happy, and some of them are now 14 inches long. But after those 1st 4 Started coming on the vine. I started dropping blossoms every morning, noon and night, and they all have about a 3/8 of an inch stem. When they look like somebody slipped him off with Paris sisters. What? It's what it's doing. So is this. Actually, I'm not familiar with this plant's was this actually in the cucumber family family. Wash family. A cucumber family. I've heard that they're Lusa is also called Chinese cucumber, and they just get really, really big. Leave him on the vine terror.

But no, I I have an elevated bed about three cinder blocks high off the ground. I have a lot of other vegetables in it, and then I added Some rebar in the ground and put 1/2 inch PVC and a hoop shape over it, so that deliberately to keep him up in a way from the ground and the blossoms that are being Attacked our our four feet by five feet off the ground doesn't think it matters that under this netting, it's gotta be a critter of swirl.

Nobody listens at. Yeah, I felt people all the time. That as far as when, when they have a basement A lot of the times. They don't want to get a price to do based a lot of food because they think it's going to be too expensive that when Michelle does it, it's not. So I tell him get a price yet as you can, and then you can have it done because you need then do it while you're living there. Because when you move more unlikely you're gonna have to do it anyway. So enjoy it while you can. So whatever one of you seen Ah, last couple weeks. Anything weird that we need to know about. No, not really weird. I mean, it's just all normal. I mean, you know, Miss Alice. We have tried to help Realtors get to the closing table in their clients. I mean, I could say as always, we're trying to educate people go out there. I like to take pictures and videos, and then I sent the video to the whoever we're working for. If it's the buyer, that's fine. If it's the cellar, that's fine. But if I'm in a crawlspace, you know in like eight or nine videos to the client. By the time I get out of the cross base, they have already seen everything. And they feel like they're on the tour with me. Chemical That is kind of cool. Well, del, You're a good dude man, so And you know we've had enough water and different areas. So I guess you're probably still seeing it's kind of weird this summer because some some areas have gotten so much rain and some people are listening on. We could use some rain over here. But I'm agin. You're seeing some wet crawl spaces and basements. Exactly, But I mean, no, it could be. Wept as far you know, have crawl spaces are there out of sight out of mind? Sure, a buyer and save buyer seller. Somebody get down there to do working goes, what the heck's going on? But you know if you got standing water and across space Over the years, It's going to evaporate upward and it will go into the wood metal create mold. So we always say what happens in the crawl space doesn't stay in the crawlspace DEL. Thanks for spending a little time with us, you go ahead. Give out Absolutely Don't I appreciate it and fire the big fat out to Richard, Miss Alice and Bill Veronica. I mean, you know they were different times where everybody knows that.

Interpretable AI in Healthcare
"One of the important areas in which model interpret ability should have an impact. I guess somewhat argue the most important areas in healthcare after all. What good is some black box It's worth something if it's reliable but yeah better than a black box would be a transparent box and while that makes a great pool quote easier said than done. There's also an interesting aside here about interpreting. For whom patient or doctor and my concern is doctor because the last thing I want to patient self diagnosing and getting access to AI tools to essentially make the sort of inferences that you need a guided trained died. Make so in my mind. Successive applied machine learning and healthcare is really about helping the doctors the clinicians the radiologist the people that are operating the machines in interpreting the evidence in doing that sort of thing so surely there's some interesting work specifically on model interpret ability in the context of healthcare right off this week on the show. I speak with Jay theon garage about his recent paper. Calibrating healthcare AI. Towards reliable and interpreted deep. Predictive models. I am I'm a computer scientist at Lawrence livermore national labs and I will descend lights computing division. They're doing research much learning in occupations and I'd asked you on today most notably to discuss your recent paper calibrating healthcare a I told reliability and interpreted deep predictive models. This is right at the intersection of the things we like to get into here. It's interpret ability and M. L. I'm not an expert in healthcare and I know it does take some expertise. Can you tell me a little bit about your background? And how you've learned these two fields and whatever their overlap is so mind. Bagnall might be Watson Mustang. Running on sitting processing may apply Problems in consideration however when. I started working on applying to Real. What problems little more being a fine slob? Vdb typically focus on a bit of scientific applications in which data modeling could be potentially used. And that's where I started. What Lawn Jimbo? Space by medicine Pot and I've been fortunate enough to work with. Us decently stuff while I watch TV in the trade beyond my basic by classes school so I started learning as starbuck along these projects and my awesome does including the ones by the research on other places that I work with there. Being helping me get on top of some of the challenges that he insists and how we could potentially report with some of the tools of your building. General ambition problems to I see a lot of headlines that Bragg for certain problems like maybe it's a radiologist and things like that that algorithms are now achieving these human level performance although when you look a little deeper maybe that's perhaps a stretch. What's your perspective on the current state of the art in Computer Vision? How close are we to that? Human level goal were all seemingly after. I think that's a philosophical question on some level if you actually talked to a doctor down definitely testing which is using human performance. Okay but if you deep down to go to the doctors and house them on both the costs that you really want to help you with many times down to this new the kind of problems back the actual doctors and people who are treating radiated difficult infections business they are looking for is solid really really challenging problems which often cutting the benchmarking statistics typically build the vision community. So this is what happens even though be producing a lot of promise. Infanta building diagnostic tools. They might not be directly. Impacting healthcare has the way of humidity expected. However this conversation study lot of more practitioners of getting volume conversations issues with us. It's not anymore like taken. Automated Published inaudible computer vision and machine learning manuals on doctors. Look at it. So that is changed. So it's means what does happen is defined realistic. Problem actually agreed to have an impact on which is not very easy to do you. Have these awesome cameras. We are looking at on for names but Hollywood. This needs a more fundamental rethinking as to what helped get problems need to be solved which is the actual big challenge for example. The flight me something like a Cobra.

A Conversation with IOTA founder, David Sonstebo
"Personally I from a I would say futuristic view like when I was a sixteen years old of his very much into the futurist movement on the Internet. At the time this was like two thousand five six seven when Bitcoin didn't even exist yet and we had something called the extra populists where you discuss everything from quantum physics foundations of physics to the danger of artificial intelligence. So if you've heard of nick booster which has become quite a household name analysts. Yeah I WANNA say. Last seven years I think is like the simulation Disease that he created cetera gained a lot of momentum particular due to alone must he was posting on these forums. And ask His collaborators as was the creator of quantum computation. His name's David Deutsch. He was the father of quantum computation. Also one of the strongest proponents of Theon many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics which has also become quite popular in the last few years. So this was kind of the environment that my formative years were spent in online and in one of these forums which was gold. Ls wrong by Allies Gulf skit will also is very focused on their life extension artificial general intelligence these kind of research topics Heuristic stuff on those forums. Of course this is were held. Fini Way die in all of these kind of book chains. Cypher legends hung around so I was exposed at quite alone. I think the white paper I owed is. Bitcoin story came up around two dozen ten eleven in the beginning. I wasn't particularly interested because it was like Internet money. And it had this very strong towards a particular political leaning and I didn't like Join Movement based on a political ideology. I don't care for that like I prefer rational and critical thinking so I didn't necessarily like it into beginning. Look because of the technology but just because of the overall movement around but then as I like as the years or a couple years past Of course used Bitcoin a couple. Times was interesting. And then the dove into the White Paper in depth and I realized that Holy Shit. This technology is really transformative. At least it could potentially be a paradigm shifts in the digital around. So from there on I would say early two thousand twelve. It was full time. Twenty four seven just distributed. Ledger Technology. How can we use it for payments? Have degree used for data Degradate boating all of these other kind of extremists So I got into that and then I met my am co-founders Sergei bunch low dominic in there and Sergei Popo. All of them were also early adopters of drip though and we got together in this project called exceed in two thousand thirteen. This was the first proof of stake. Implementation was kind of the first of I I would say INEX- T for those historians out there listening and Exte- was the first project that truly brought the blockchain to other applications older than just transactional back and forth payments because we had a completely decentralized assets exchange which you can now of course compared to Theorems Your C. Twenty token kind of ICO. Hyper happen and we all sat boating. That all of these interesting stuff. Identity Cetera on the distributed ledger. Jen so all of us met there. Erin coalesced around this idea but then personally. I was much more interested in the futuristic aspects. Has That was my background? So I tried to contemplate what role can distribute electric play in the future and for me. There was two very definite role that it can play number. One is the data integrity or data insurance or whatever term. You want to use it. Depends on what the paper rate rise is that like paper or like proving that data hasn't been tampered with and that you know people who okay interesting exactly so the way I think about like the future whether hundreds of billions of sensors and a lot of this edge computational devices which at the time was even called edge computational because it didn't exist at the time but for us it was very obvious that you will have computation have sensors sending day to these gates at the edge. Should they will computer that? They will send it back in. You will have real time actionable Kind of items. That you can Not just measuring analyzed but you can also act on them but in that case like in that futuristic scenario where the entire world is just completely autonomous. You are one hundred percent dependent on the date of being accurate and that's where this debate electric. It's immutable and censorship resistant. So that's kind of the angle that isolated from from point one and point to was what is the incentive. Because you can think of it today. You have Just from a human's centric experience point of view. You fit bit than you have with things rabble these different e health companies. Just a very simple example. How do they interact in? What is the incentive for them to interact? There has to be a mechanism for them to actually data an open up their data silos so it kind of becomes disfluent data lake which kind of been promised for the best twenty years and from my perspective the distributed ledger provides a payment mechanism. This value transferred guaranteed value transfer. So those are the two things that are really Really prompted me to initiate the IOTA Project and since then just just wrap it up very quickly. This introduction became quite long so since two thousand fourteen. We started the project and we went forward with it. Developed the initial prototype Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and then in two thousand and sixteen restarted the incorporation of thieves Which was the first non partitioning Europe at the time that was confronted with cryptocurrency and it was in Germany so as you can imagine it wasn't the easiest process like Germany isn't known for its Super Liberal policies. We have to go through a lot of the doors to get that accepted the witted and that also paints kind of the backdrop of what I oughta is versus a of these other projects in the sense that we chose to take the hardest route possible from the beginning. Because we knew if this is going to become something if this if this is going to become the next TCP IP protocol we have to get the legislation on our side we have to get the regulators on our side. So let's just go through it in the beginning. So that's what we did. Got It setup. Now we hundred twenty people in thirty different countries around the growth as the foundation. Of course have a huge community as well. So that's yeah that's why introduction

Parking Lot Landing With Jeff King
"This was in two thousand are at that point in time. I would my Turkey six at that point. I had about four hundred dollars on that particular aircraft and I used it for business and personal travel so at that point it was in September. I was during the visit. My sister and we flew from Holland to troy. Michigan and troy is a kind of an urban airport little bit north of Detroit Michigan and it was an uneventful flight. We you know the Cheer King. Six has four fuel tanks. We burn down the first two fuel tanks and landed in the left hip tank. No issues there. We rode my bike to my sisters and then came back and decided to go back home. We were GONNA stop at Hillsdale to get fuel. That's another airport that I was based out of at that point in time. And when you say we jeff who was in the airplane with you oh. I'm sorry I'm a HAM radio operator. We use that word we sometimes so no. I okay got it. You were so low and flying over to see your sister who I know you shared with us was sick. And you're flying over to visit her and then your plan was to visit her for a bit and then turn around and depart for home. That same evening is that right. That's correct come home that evening. So we wrote our bike back to the airport and Dinner run up and everything seemed fine. I had been doing short field takeoffs to says as a habit even though this was not really a short field and that was about a thousand pounds under gross so we didn't take off the twenty degrees flaps What up pretty fast. We pitched over from V. Ecstasy Y and immediately after that with the answer starts to stumble and then we lost power. It was of course it was nighttime. At that point we were on the eastbound runway runway nine and two seven at that particular report and started a turn it back to the field and then all of a sudden Stalin came on. And we're at roughly three hundred feet at that point. In time at that point you would your engine fails or I head engine stumble with Cherokee six four take aircraft and if you're going to get any kind of range out of it you would run out of fuel at altitude and the engine would star. Bill. Would I talk about that? You're eight ten thousand feet up. Always have something picked out ahead of time so your your heart would always flutter. I Dunno if anyone's ever not changed a tank purpose or not in for your heart flutters. Well this time. It wasn't on purpose this time. I wasn't ten thousand feet. This time. I was up three hundred feet. So you got that moment where you. Oh my gosh. A couple seconds elapses. It seems like a couple of minutes. So short field takeoffs techniques who knows is relatively high you're climbing out at Vx SPEED. You're just beginning to push over to capture V. Y. and your engine stumbles and then very shortly thereafter. You see the stall light right so at the airport when Stalin came on thankfully might training. At least I feel like my training kicked in at that point. My instructor be if our instructor. Jason Dyson from years past always messed around with me. I guess this lack of a better where we would fail the engine on me and he'd always tell me if you lose your engine on takeoff. The Insurance Company owns the airplane. What he meant by that was that you worry about yourself. You don't worry about your airplane. You worry about yourself so when that stall I came on I just pushed the forward. I didn't see what was outside. I didn't I didn't even look outside of this. Pushing forward was at a fairly aggressive. Push Jeff relatively hard or Takasu. Assume that that push. Yeah you have to understand. This whole series of events probably was fifteen to twenty seconds for the time I rotated to the time the engine baby ten fifteen seconds so there. There was a lot going on in a very short period of time so I would say the push was relatively hardware pushed it forward. Yeah where I was pitching over the top. I dropped flaps out as well. I took a twenty degrees. I dropped in ten when I went to wide and then I immediately pulled some flaps in his well once I was pitched down because I knew there was there was not a lot of space in front of me and I was correct. There wasn't so I'm I'm pitch down. I'm seeing portion of the Walmart parking lot in front of me and then a feel beyond their. I just pushed it down. I think one of the witnesses said he went into a dive and I did because I did not have a lot a lot of space to land the point. Jeff how is the visibility here? So you said you're up about three hundred feet when it stumbles. You're pushing over so now you can see over the knows. I mean you only had a couple seconds to make a decision here on where to go was visibility. An issue for you at all. Visibility was on an issue. The only thing with this particular field was I. My in-laws lived in the area. My sister lived in the area side using air for quite a bit so I knew there wasn't a lot a lot of choices to go if she had a problem. Yeah that looking at where you were in. That era means basically the Detroit Metro area. It's pretty crowded around that airport for sure. It's a industrial a mixed industrial commercial retail area. Yeah any Cherokee. Six has a relatively long nose. So when you're pissed up like that in a short field takeoff you pitch over visibility over the nose for at least a little bit can be an issue but you pitch over to start capturing glider really. You weren't interested in capturing a glide you're religious interested in preventing the stall at that point at that point it was just it was just muscle memory. I guess for lack of a better word. Where then you're training kicks in and you're doing things you're supposed to be doing and not thinking about it. So I I just I saw that stall icon and I thought about departure stalls. I mean again. It was such a limited period of time. I remember on the way down. The properties rotating slowly probably from the wind are not sure that the NTSB thought possibly the engine starting to catch again. And there's always coming down but at that point I stopped doing any of the checks doing and I just committed to the landing in trying to retain control the aircraft and was the Walmart parking lot straight ahead. Did you have to make a slight turn to get there? Where was it in relation to the attitude of your airplane while it was laughed and I started to do a turn when the ancient stumbled to try to come back to the field so call them turn right when that style came on. I I gave up. I know I've got to save myself fly. The airplane fly the airplane. Fly that Europe Lane. What I saw my windshield again was pretty surreal. I saw a white van. There was a very narrow strip of the parking lot that was free of cars. I saw white van ahead of me. Turning the left it turned out it was a white car but from that altitude looked like a white van and I just basically all my gosh. I hope he turns. I hope he turns. Because that's the only option. I have a whole bunch of parked cars and to the right of me. It was dark. I really couldn't see to the right of me. I had to go where I could see. Thankfully he turned. It probably wouldn't have been an issue for him anyway. She was so far away. But still if you saw the photographs that I sent there was like an alley behind a row of buildings and I was kind of aiming for the alley. That alley was behind a strip mall behind. The store is a Walmart. I was passing over. Then there was a parking lot. Anyth- me then a strip mall that had a alley behind it. I was trying to turn to edge between there and the feel Birla's again that turn was roughly from the time your engine sputtered. You start turning you. Were turning back with a sputtering engine then Pretty Soon. You realize the engines had quit. You're about to stall you push over and so that was About a ninety degree. Turn away from runway heading to head towards this parking lot. Is that about right arm? Say about sixty to seventy degrees but yeah right okay so laughing more or less north okay and you really have limited options. You pushed down to prevent the stall you seeing the only real open spaces parking lot. So you're pushing to keep flying airspeed into get into this parking lot. Did you have any ability as you came down for lateral control to miss? You know lighting or cars or anything like that or you pretty much really minimally guiding the airplane at this point I had enough control to put a heart slip in also to try to get down Got It okay. Yeah you can see the parking lot for quite well but as far as being able to see what's around you you really couldn't like I hook theon right main landing gear on a shopping cart corral when I was flaring and I didn't even see that yeah. I saw that in the video. You sent by the way for our listeners. We'll have the pictures that Jefferson and the short video clip from the parking lot that shows a portion of a crash up on our website. So That is interesting so you turn it. You see the parking lot but you're too high so now you're into a pretty good slip to try to lose that altitude to get down to the parking lot and then you come in and take it from there so I'm pushing down hard starting to flare and I didn't see the shopping cart crowd but it hooked my right main as I said. Toilet the right main often it went shopping. Carts went flying in the air. I guess the at this point it starts to become I mean the whole thing was surreal but then it becomes extremely surreal at this point. I guess the first impression layer craft landed pretty hard Cherki sixes glide like a brick and of course I lost my right man. I didn't know it but I lost my right main. Sorry hit down pretty hard. I was a little bit stunned for a moment. When I hit the ground then became really surreal. Like I said I imagine yourself on the expressway. Drive your card about maybe seventy miles an hour and you go through a bunch of shopping carts. I mean they're flying up all around the airplane That was pretty bizarre. Then I'm sliding across the parking lot in this aircraft you know. I don't have any control. I mean there's no steering control all I mean I don't my right man I I. I was hoping to go between the Strip mall and the right side of the parking lot but the plane started to go to the right because there was no right it was dragging thankfully to the right was there was nothing to the right other than the embankment. Another parking lot about a five foot drop roughly so I'm sliding along okay. I think I'm going to live at this point. I'm shook it up but you know all my body parts are attached the cabins and tech which I got to say about Piper Cabin was was stayed intact through the whole accident so all of a sudden I'd see this bright white lights on my right side I go by. What is this all about? You know that lasted for about a second. And I'll get back to the moment. And then I shout over the parking lot over the embankment which is about a five foot drop that was on their big bump and then finally came to stop at the edge of the second part right the field or back to that white light as they say. I'm not really a religious person but apparently that was the tip tank getting sheared off on the The curb of the of the first part is that went over the embankment the Cherokee six has a fiberglass tank on it so it totally open it I at seventeen gallons in the right tank and totally open the tank up before an accident. And there's a number of things you're supposed to. Todd opened the door up. Turn the electrical off well. I didn't turn electoral off. I had incandescent lightbulb on the right tip. But as soon as the tip take opened up and of course Saddam flight broken immediately caused a fireball. Well thankfully the fireball and the gasoline got left behind and I kept going so I I come to a stop I look out my right window and the right. There's a small fire in the right wing. I didn't know I'd lost all my fuel. It was what was left so I- scramble out of the airplane I literally You can see one of the pictures where the right. Meanwhile sitting next to the right wing I literally had to dodge the right. The right wheels bouncing across the parking lot heady get the airplane. I had to either dodge it when I got on the airplane. As you're playing was a small fire the right wing. I didn't know the fuel situation there was you know. And of course I saw a huge fire behind me. I just got away from the airplane at that point so you survived the crash. You step out dodge. The right landing gear still bouncing down the pavement towards you and then what was your next action from there you're standing there looking at this Wreck of an airplane and thankful that you survived it. Thankful that the airplane protected you and then would you do jeff. Well at that point I ran up the embankment back onto the main Walmart. Parking Lot and there was a few people there. I I guess one of them did you. They asked me if the pilots okay and I said well I was the pilot. I'm okay everything's trying to register at that point and I asked to call nine one one. They already had called nine one one and we just waited for the police to get there and so forth. What an interesting deal. That happens so quickly. From your estimation from the time you release breaks till I don't know maybe thirty seconds forty five seconds later you're standing up on that embankment looking at your
Secrets of a Kaggle Grandmaster with David Odaibo
"All right everyone. I am on the line with David. Dipoto David is co founder and CTO of Analytical Ai as well as a Kengo Grandmaster David. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you SAM. Happy to be here what? I'm really looking forward to this chat. I think this is the first Time I've had a sibling on the show. I interviewed your brother. Stephen Dipoto back in July of last year where we were talking about retinal image generation and he was up on twitter recently. Talking you up in your conquest on capital and I thought man. I've got to get this conversation as well. So congratulations for being the first sibling. At least to my knowledge on the PODCASTS. Ed Thank you. Why don't we start by having you share a little bit about your background? How did you come to work on machine learning when I started my PhD? I was interested in machine learning. I wasn't quite sure where to go back then. Those a lot of literature review a lot of digging around and back. Then you know I read a lot of papers. I I kind of tried to get a sense of where to go to get useful information and a K go kept creeping up and coming up in various in various things I read and so I finally join cable and the kind of a kind of put it gave me an opportunity to put some of that Theoretical background into practice and it made a lot of things made a lot more sense when you actually practice. So what were you studying for European? I was looking to investigate. Deep learning medical imaging and how the advances in deep learning at the time could be applied to various medically mission problems. And that sounds like an interesting runs in the family. Yeah yeah he does you know besides from any kind of genetic contribution what sparked your interest in that I wanted actually the first Niro network I have. I wanted to see if I could build something to recognize facing an image and this was actually before I started my I might these topic and so that was really how I got really interested in machine learning. Because we're something that was kind of blindly doing and you know as you're digging around. I wrote my first neural network in in C. SHARP. Which was it worked horribly. And this was in twenty twelve and you know That kind of made me realize that you read about how neural networks you work and all these things but you never really. I never really knew at the time. What the appropriate frameworks to us. And and and how you go about it basically so So wh why C. Sharp Microsoft developed a Microsoft. I was at Microsoft Enterprise. Divall bright had the Microsoft certifications and stuff so I was pretty good that C. Sharp at the time so I think. Let me let me try to do this. Sharp annual is just the absolute wrong idea. Wrong approach to us at the time. But you know if you have a hammer you know. He tried to so. If I'm putting the pieces together correctly you were the Microsoft enterprise developer before you went back. What prompted you to go back for your date. Well it's something I always wanted to do. You know after I got my masters I worked in industry a little bit and I always knew I needed to kind of pivot back and and complete being she so I was kind of it was something I was in the plans before a by one or two after being in school for so long Oregon gained some experience. Yeah Nice and so. He started working on neural networks. In C- Sharpen Hanegev. Banged Away with that hammer that you you had and it was. It was absolutely wrong today. I just didn't know where to go where to start back. Then you kind of were pursuing this formal research and education with the PAC but then you realize that there was can have a practical complement to that in Cagle How did you with you know once you can create an account and join cagle quote unquote like? How did you actually start? Did you just jump in and do a competition so I actually created my account for the first time I think it was two thousand fourteen? Two Thousand Fifteen And I think actually I I looked around I read. I didn't actually start competing too. You're later okay. So I I joined and then I just poked around and then later on I kept working on my stuff and I got better at it. I kind of identified. The right frameworks to us. I got a little bit more comfortable and then I think I did my first competition in in two thousand sixteen. And and that was that data sizable at the time that one was for trying to detect the volume of of of education in In heart cardiograms are so that was my first competition and that competition. I did okay. You know but I didn't do really well but it was good experience kind of got my feet but Yeah and were you. We had you partnered up with folks for that one or were you working independently. Yeah those are the other guy that we're a Jason Zinc where both in the same program and we're both doing kind of Medically mentioned so. We went into that competition together. Okay Cool and so that was twenty. Sixteen fast forward to twenty twenty and you've seen quite a bit of success in competitions. Can you talk about some of the your Maurice Results or the results that you're most proud of yeah so Shortly after that competition there's another one that was For also medical imaging related competition. It was for segmenting ultrasound images in the neck and there was Fortunately for me That competition is actually becomes bested. So there was a there was a new architecture. New Paper that was written on this thing called. An encoder Dakota network is called a unit and it hadn't really been used on cable before met architecture and had read the paper about the architecture and when I read the paper because I thought about this too you know like how do you say maintenance something I've been thinking about. But when I read that favor the ideas and the in the paper made a lot of sense and it almost seems so obvious that that was what you're supposed to do to segment images volition neural networks way. Try to preserve You try to preserve the localization information from the images and things so that paper really sparked my interest. I I read it. I was I was a fan of that. And this competition came up and somebody mentioned it and Back there knows a framework called LASAGNA and Theon oh and those frameworks are deprecated now but back. Then those actually what? I did what I used and I I. I said okay. I'M GONNA give it a shot. I'm try I'M GONNA try to implement this unit architecture and I did and I had no hope of actually doing well in that competition but I said let me give it a shot I implemented. I trained the network and to my surprise it worked and I was so I was just so happy that it worked. I had no idea I was going to finish second place in the competition so so that's probably the one most proud of because I had to hack a lot of things back. Then you know there was two thousand. Sixteen there was there was no there are not a lot of best practices and how you do segmentation even back there so there was this. A lot of the frameworks out. There had not specified how date augmentation mention. You know for imaging masks because when you train when you train segmentation networks to avoid over fit in you have to manage the image and the mask together and you have to find the right kind of maintain strategies and things like that so I have those. I created a good argumentation strategy. Good argumentation framework. And you know. I saw a lot of people in challenge struggling with this idea. You know and they were probably implementing two right augmentation strategies because Like I said this was the first time to use his unit in this competition. But I was kind of a little bit ahead of the game back then and So yeah so I finished in second place annuals. It was probably the proudest challenge.

Visiting Virunga National Park in the DRC
"I'd like to welcome to the show. Neil from Ireland. WHO's come to talk to us not about Ireland but about Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo meal meal? Welcome to the show thanks. It's great to be here now. We're talking to an Irishman about an African country. What is your connection with Virunga National Park Mark with DRC? I came across Franca. Maybe like a lot of people scrolling through next lakes and came across to Verona documentary was Oscar nominated donated a couple years back Across and when I watch this and I saw the conservation work being done there. I kind of felt a nose and the theon says well ever since we've been kind of keeping tabs on the park keeping tabs on to charity in the work. They're doing kind of daydreaming about coming here someday. Someday and fortunately a couple of months ago we got to choose and spent eight days in the park. And if we I wanted to put it on a map we're in the DC. So were in the western half of the southern part of Africa and where we within the Democratic Republic of Congo Virago. National Park is Roy's on the eastern edge of the DRC. And if you were to put on a map you're pretty much in in debt. Exact heart of Africa. So there's a very large cece Ghouma which is about a million people and the park ruins north from there along the border with Rwanda and Uganda excellent. And why should someone go to for National Park. Okay so I just Kinda tree. Main reasons people generally go to vulgar. I I swear I is the picture postcard. It's near Dongo Volcano. So for those of you don't know it's one of the only active laugh lakes Exon art so it's very very unique thing. I think there's only seven in the whole globe so that's a really big attraction the second power to to this is melting guerrillas. So again there's only three places on earth you can see mountain. Gross National Park is one of those and then finally when I'd say as Virunga is one of the oldest and degrades national parks on earth and wounded world's gray conservation projects and you can visit it with almost no other tourists so it's really a chance to see a great African National Park pretty much share says and when you say there are only a couple of other places you I can see mountain gorillas. You happen to be a stone's throw from them when you're in a national park absolutely so not grits. Basically the only live in the mountains and those mountains straddle the Rwandan Ugandan and DRC barter so within an hour urine in basically it's the same guerrillas and they actually do pass back and forth across the border and thrown guys just worn out those treat locations but there's some differences in in terms of price ace and the size of the group. You'd be with so can talk a bit about this when we talk about grits Deidra okay but really that areas why. I wanted to make sure that people understood is where we're win. We're all the way over there to the east. That means we're really just across the border from Uganda. What kind of are you going to recommend for US earth too? So I know gingerly generally on your podcast for kind of a week. Itinerary and Veronica some flexibility when we're going as far as Africa absolutely and I guess a lot of guests if they go to Africa. They're likely to maybe tag. This onto a maybe a wider trip or wider safari. Sorry so Veronica is actually very flexible so anything between kind of two days to eight days. You're going to see quite a lot. And there's kind the four main sites within the park and depending on your interests and preferences you can mix and match them so if you really only want to see the volcano you can be in forty not eight hours if you want to do everything about eight days and what we did was we. We spent quite a lot of time. There we dare nineteen days so we did everything quite a bit of detail and we can talk data entry but you can abs- dookie slice and dice it to fit your time-scale excellent and where should we start anyone. Visiting Virunga is going to be coming through the lower city of Goma. Now Goma is kind of an interesting place For want of a better. That's word so it's it's a city of a million people would huge number of those being UN peacekeepers and NGOs. It's always been in the power of the word. That's a little bit chaotic. And I found when I was looking at open. Your your listeners. Might find interesting is if you go on Google alert. There's two the twin cities. Most people will come in from Rwanda your fly into Kigali which is only about two to three hour drive into the border crossing and there's a town Cassini and Rwanda which is more twin the goal Matt Iran Roy's teacher. There's no real clear bar between the except if you look look on Google alert you can. Even if there was no barter on the map you could absolutely tell the difference between Rwandan D. R. C. On one side of the dimap map. There's these beautiful houses. Lovely Straight Roads Gardens Greenery and on the other side during his chaos absent whose that notre chaos and to be clear. You're you're side absolutely but chaos in isis going. So is an unusual place. I think the feeding on got there. It was kind of POMPEII in waiting. So the first thing that would really strike you when you get into Goma is developing near Dongo frames your the entire view so you look out over the city and in the very near distance is an Uruguayan. Go at eight. Tenths give out a a lot of clouds of smoke pretty much all day round and that's not a fake sewing. Volcano is very much active and erupted in two thousand and two was the most recent and and Flow True City caused quite go to visit damage. You'll still see when you drive through to see see places where say there was a two story house house and now the entrance is on the first floor because the whole ground floor is now basically solidified lava. It's an unusual usual spot. It's not one that I suspect. Most visitors spend any great toy man so like false wego barter and we a mess our guide who took US pretty much true Goma without stopping so we drove through the city. It's perfectly safe during the day but you kind of I think the most interesting power to the city is just to see I think for anyone who's experience either hasn't been in. Africa are as experience maybe more to safari lodges and that client side. It is a good introduction to maybe some of the more real day to day experiences underground it would awake in your senses for better or worse. But it's very interesting place to pass through and you mentioned meeting your guide. How did you find a guide for this trip? Spoiled it being quite a complicated power to the world. This was probably one of the easiest trips. I've ever taken so to go to the National Park because of the security region the organize everything centrally. So your point of contact would always be the national park and they have a specific tourist department that looks after all logistics. Ice was wanted under things that concern me day. One was a land border that I have to cross in Africa and does not always a reassuring thing to be doing so actually when I was underground founded wonderful laws when you cross the border into the DRC. There's actually a very very modern building thing that was actually funded by Howard. Both I think is one of he wanted years. He does a lot of charitable work so he actually Biz modern. Warren Buffett. Aso's Sorry Actually Warren Both its broader or other. Okay yes so. I think he's actually a partner in the business and he's also equally successful at he's actually hugely involved in Goma and national packets of and as has done amazing work. And actually when you go around here you'll see lots of signs bearing these names where he's foundation has done. Great work to actually Barda. Crossing itself is fantastic. It's like a modern kind of airport tight building and wanted conditions. Wins all of this very fancy building being used was that for the National Park. Were actually given an office inside in the Border Patrol area. So when you go in you don't meet Garrett's you don't meet people checking your passport. You actually meet your tourist. God who will take her passport. Kgo Eight eight-point scenes and organize everything for you while you sit comfortably in their tourist office so for anyone who's nervous about crossing borders navigating like that this is absolutely nucle- The easiest thing in the world it's not something to be concerned
Why are smart women falling for pseudoscience health gimmicks?
"Strange beliefs around. Women's bodies have a long history and every every day we have bombarded by new wellness claims from restoring the balance of our hormones to the self healing properties of salary juice and unsurprisingly thinly. The wellness industry is now worth a two point eight trillion worldwide. It has never been so difficult to distinguish fact from Fahd leaving many of us feeling extremely confused including myself joining me today to help uncover only the truth is personal trainer. bestselling selling author and women's Health magazine columnist. Alice Living Heller Alice. Hi Hello I think when they're all so many small women out left falling for harmful and pseudoscientific claims. Let's just our Ryan. Why do you think this is happening? I think it's a pretty interesting. It definitely been in the position where I've fallen for some stuff myself to I think it comes from a genuine place of us all wanting to live healthier live longer. I think we've suddenly the nego access to all of this information which he didn't necessarily have before where we're able to read about all of these things like on our health or wellbeing wellness wellness. Become a thing that was never a thing ten. You know ten years ago And he's become very difficult to decide for from fiction because I think many any many people enter. And I'M GONNA use even though I I use in brackets but the wellness industry with the best intentions of wanting to help people to achieve that elusive thing. That as ultimate health and happiness if it so exists And I think it's difficult because I think the people that we are listening to ball all people like yourself who oversee qualified experts You know anyone can enter and this is the dangerous thing is anyone in Canada onto social media call themselves whatever they one give themselves whatever kind of title they deem to be appropriate and then saw spouting of information in a very authoritative way which for the average person seems seems legit so it's really difficult for the average consumer of social media to know what is fact and what is fiction completely. I think you hit the nail on the head when you said said it comes from potentially a very warm loving place they can end up with a little trouble in some recent trends. I think have been. They've been a bit city but interesting thing. So one study suggested one in five women have have washed inside their vagina in the past year. And apparently it's called douching douching if it was a French word douche shower cooled yet latouche I mean. Do you know anything about this. Have you seen as we know that the vaginal tissues the my son's tissue the body. So I think it's a really interesting and I actually think it's a wide issue. That doesn't just stem from that particular piece of research. I think if we look brands we've seen how consumerism has driven us to create that we don't actually necessarily need and then make us believe that we ultimately do really need them and I think that's the really difficult Area where it's not just feminine hygiene products. It's loads the things within the industry that we don't need we've lived without for years and years and years and suddenly we're being told that the we we absolutely need this to live like I said live healthier and live longer And there's a price tag attached to it. Am I just think it's a very elitist worrying kind of trend that seems to be in Increasing yeah I think the thing with these kind of Feminine Hygiene Products is the research has shown time and time again this gynecologist. Who say this is not necessary? The Ph of your China will maintain itself and you do not need to wash yourself with any luxury products you will. You will naturally do that yourselves and and I think like unfortunately it goes back to what you're talking about in the first conversation. Which is the the the marketing pitching around? This stuff has been so good but people believe that the unfortunately they're gonNA trust something that they see in the shelving boots over gynecologist. He's saying you don't need this completely. I mean some of even said it's a contraceptive to which is worrying. And I read as well that it cannot be throw off the balance of the good bacteria in the Vaginas like Alice said. I think it's a bit of a money making to Ooh head but you have to be careful because the Internet can sail a lot of things in different societal norms. Tell us one thing different cultures but at the end of the day if you are looking for contraceptive I'm just begging anyone. Listening go to see who jeep but also it kind of taps into a deeper issue of the fact that we we should be in some in some way ashamed of of a joiner and ashamed of you know. There's lots of stigma attached to our The area things like Oh you know if it smells or well you know all of these things and we made to feel ashamed. Thought which can handle things like your sexual relationships your self confidence. It goes much much deeper than just it being about it. Not being necessary and interesting when I was reading up about it About you know these Feminine Hygiene Dogs. The gynecologist on their website says you know if if a woman should choose to wash her for China with something. It should be this and it's like no like you can't very gray tom in a very gray statement to make in that he's not necessarily saying you have to have it. But if you should choose to and I just think we really need to be a lot clearer in what we need and what we don't need for our bodies and making it a lot simpler for people because as you know in the nutrition walled things have just so overcomplicated and we. We're being made to feel as though we have to spend and lot of money on achieving elusive thing called like optimal health. And just not knowing the nutritional is just not the case. Narin you correctly said that I praise on the vulnerable and also what I call the worried. Well as well as something. That happens a lot that I see that it preys on one of our insecurities as females as well. It's you're right. It's much deeper rooted. This is definitely not my fail but deep-rooted psychology that perhaps would definitely not good enough or inferior striving for perfection which which is which is worrying but else. Have you seen that dangerous recently that we should be aware of. I think something that I've seen online. which actually a couple of people I've seen call out which is great and people in authority in position? You have to do so which is even better but One of them is whom I in balancing now. I think this is a really really interesting area because I think it particularly played preys on women and vulnerable women who feel as though in George George case like seeing who feels like they've almost done everything to try and lose weight and nothing's he's walking and then this person comes along and says but I can dance your hormones and suddenly. It's like the the cured and they are so much better and they're able to lose weight and I think this this idea of home and balancing from people that are not under control adjusts on not doctor is unwell. People with any qualification bought. Maybe being a personal trainer is quite concerning completely. I think especially with the whole my balancing. It's also linked to Ah for instance you yourself a very open about having polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and I think for women out there the large majority of them indefinitely listeners. Go about the episode we recorded with Anita the Gyna- Geek so many people software endometriosis and different female related problems. And this is all my saying I can help help you fix that balance this out by taking these supplements and I mean I was. Why do you think that it's it's the products? Now targeting women and especially those under the age of eighteen seen as well as seems to be everywhere I think because there's money there I think it's because we have become Like I said earlier. We've we've we've come to to believe that we need to spend money on our health and the more money we spend on the battery it must be and I think big big brands have caught onto the fact that people. Aw Aw all willing to spend money on their wellbeing and their health and so every. Brian going is trying to make themselves a wellness brand in some way. If you look at campaigns from from you know all all sorts of onto the sun they'll always try and have like a wellness line goal because they realize that it's a great marketing style US Brandon. You'll be healthier theon happy. I just think everyone yeah. And particularly when you mentioned the under eighteen like it's really concerning A lot of this stuff is targeted at girls. That are not You know they're not even out of puberty. That bodies are still changing the cylinder that are still deciding who they are and who they want to be and to come in and already make thank them conscious and aware of things that they don't need to be made aware of that age structure Such tricky like time anyway It's no wonder that we have the issues that we do and I think there is completely multifactoral and when it comes down to. I think social media doesn't help the media doesn't help but I also think marketing foxing products particularly that focused on things like weight loss or health to a certain degree. Goals are goes on boys that are under eighteen is this is really
Evo Morales and Bolivia: What We Know About the President’s Resignation
"We turn out to the deepening political crisis in Bolivia on Sunday. Libyan President Morales resigned in what he described as a coup shortly after the Bolivian military took to the airwaves to call for his departure. On Tuesday. Morales flew to Mexico where he has received the silent on Tuesday night. Right wing. Senator Janine on yes declared herself Bolivia's new president despite a lack of a quorum in the congress gris to approve her ascension to that post I can't they suffered in theon preceding or not. We are facing here. A presidential succession Shen originating from the vacancy of the presidency of the state you to the definitive absence of the president vice president which means that according to the text and and meaning of the Constitution President of the Chamber of Senators. I immediately assumed the presidency of the state as foreseen in the constitutional order comprehend. I commit myself to accept responsibility for all necessary measures to pacify. The country held a Bible when announcing her claim to the presidency declaring the Bible returns to the Presidential Palace Modalities Movement Toward Socialism. Party is refusing to recognize the new president calling her claim. Legal and decrying Motorola's resignation as a military coup last month. President Morales was re elected for fourth term term. Racist opponents claimed was marred by fraud. He ran for a fourth term after contesting referendum upholding term limits Morales step down soon after accepting the Organization of American can states call for new elections on Tuesday. Morales spoke in Mexico Amigo. I also want to tell you. Brothers and sisters. As long as I am alive we will stay in politics as long as I am alive. The fight will continue and we're sure that the people of the world have all the rights to free themselves. Departure has sparked mark demonstrations and clashes across Bolivia in La Paz to stay his supporters. took to the streets. Did it was being Paul. Remember the opposition will never be able to govern as Evermore Dallas has done hurts us. Our neater bb will be missing love. You left orphaned for more. We host a debate on the political crisis in Bolivia and Lopez were joined the democracy now video stream by Pablo Salon former ambassador to the United Nations under president into Evo Morales until two thousand eleven. He's former chief negotiator on climate change for Bolivia and in Amherst Massachusetts. We're joined by Kevin Young Assistant Professor of History Street University of Massachusetts Amherst. He's the author of blood of the Earth Resource. Nationalism Revolution and Empire in Bolivia Young is also the editor of making the Revolution Histories Histories of the Latin American left. We welcome the both to democracy. Now let's begin in Bolivia with Pablo Salon can do you describe what happened as a coup. I think it's very complicated to say. It's cool because I think there was a popular valium because this issue stuck in two thousand sixteen whenever Morales didn't recognize the result of a referendum. That said that he couldn't run for a new reelection election. If he would have respected that referendum he would have finished his third term as probably the best present in Bolivia but he didn't do that. He forced that the Constitutional Tribunal Did a statement saying that it was a human right to to run for new elections and then we have the elections of the twenty eighth of October Stober. Were they were. There was definitely frog you have we have so many evidences here ear so many reports from different institutions not only are saying that of course the population went to the street it was massive and it has lasted for twenty days so to say this is a coup. d'etat plan by The towels the right-wing forces fascist forces. I think it's it's to make a caricature of what is really happening. Now who's going to take advantage of. The situation are going to be right-wing forces is going to be the imperialist North America but who created this crisis I think was this his addiction to power that ever moralist and his party began to have during the last years. I'd like to ask S. A. Kevin Young to Deal with the same issue of whether this was a coup or not and also to deal with the reality that the majority in the Congress. It's still of the is the political party of Emma Morale's so to what degree can Whoever becomes president be able to To to move forward with the political agenda given the enormous strength still love the oven without his forces in the country a coup has has a simple and straightforward definition. It's the unconstitutional removal. A sitting President before that President's term in office is up in the case of Bolivia Evo Morales is elected president. His term isn't do up until January. Twenty first of twenty twenty and in this case on Sunday. Oh you had the lead commander of the belief armed forces directly intervening in ordering evo out of office. So that's a coup and I think that's that's pretty straightforward forward. That shouldn't be controversial. What makes this coup particularly dangerous is that it is being supported by the most racist and reactionary elements hits in Bolivian society? Now as well as by the United States now all of that being said the overall political situation in Bolivia is complex complex. All of the opposition is not the same. The opposition is not monolithic. There are opposition protesters who are much more progressive Many indigenous groups working class Bolivians have become very disillusioned with the government and turned against it. So those voices are important and to recognize. We shouldn't be painting the entire opposition with the same. Brush or insinuating that it's all some conspiracy by the United States. But at the same meantime it is important to recognize as well that almost half of the Bolivian population voted for Edelmira October twentieth. And whether you think that's forty seven seven percent as the government said or maybe it's only forty six or forty five percent. The fact remains that almost half of Bolivia's still supported Avo on October Twentieth Twentieth. And those voices also need to be counted and recognized they may have criticisms of the government many of them do and I know some of them but they're they're not supporting the coup because they fear that a right wing government is really going to roll back some of the progressive gains that have been made in the last thirteen years in in an immediate sense. They're they're fearful of right wing violence in the streets which is happening in which is targeting particularly indigenous Bolivians. Now what's going to happened with the Congress because despite the fact that many moss legislators and officials have resigned sometimes under threat of violence from the right it is still true that a majority of the congress is controlled by the Maas Party. They have signaled they have said that they are interested in finding finding a constitutional resolution to the crisis. Now what exactly that's going to look like is still very unclear. It's not clear what new elections are going to look like or under what conditions they're going to be held. The Maas Party is somewhat in disarray. The last several days so we really don't know what's going to happen at this point the song I wanted to ask you about this This issue of Motorola's had agreed as a result of the protests industries and the the recommendation of the Organization of American States to hold new elections. So should the opposition have at least waited until his term was was up until new elections were held Be before attempting to remove him completely and also the issue of the military the military On on the one hand said that we're not going to intercede when the police officers began rebelling against the government but then has interceded To join the police police in now attempting to quell protests of Morales supporters. Okay so the first thing ever morales call to new elections when he said he was going to call new elections and he said he was going to change the electoral court which meant that. He agreed that the electoral court was involved in some cases of fraud in the the elections of the twentieth of October. Because a ever morale is didn't say I called with elections and I respect this electoral court. I will change it because the evidence were to to a there was fraud and of course you have in the population relation. Let them writing forces. The population said what's out. You're saying that new elections with a new electoral court means means that there was fraud and fraud. It's something that you cannot except it's a crime so you cannot. Let's say okay. Well there was no. I'm going to call for new elections. Nothing happened in Bolivia. Now I guarantee you that everything is going to be okay. It's impossible what happened there. The Danilovich coup and went out to the streets that day and force morale is no. They said we're not going to go out to the street. The situation is terrible so people don't accept new elections after you are recognizing that there was wrong. That is what they said. And and we suggest that you sign and they didn't went out to the streets and why did he resign my point of view. He resigned because he was not able to sustain. The is this idea that the elections of the twentieth of October were were clean and if they weren't clean he was involved. Because you cannot do that frog without the involvement of the government
Antisocial: Online Extremists, Techno-Utopians and the High-Jacking of the American Conversation
"Andrew Marantz joins us now from Chicago. He is a staff writer at the New Yorker occur and the author of a new book called Antisocial Online Extremists Techno Utopians and the hijacking of the American conversation enter. Thanks thanks for being here. Thanks for having me these pretty not nice people that you research for this book. I don't want to bum people out too much with the subject matter and I and I don't think of it as purely just trying to dunk people's heads in the scary toilet bowl of the Internet. You know my goal is not to just sort of tore people through who the badness and show it and say hey look at all these bad people. There is an element of that and I was spending three years hanging out in person primarily and also online with some pretty odious people. But it's really a kind of test case for what the Internet can do to us and kind of how we can understand it well enough to to pull ourselves out of it so so it's not merely just gawking. Seal injected teeny bit of hope. Perhaps into this world some hope some some diagnosis of where we're at and also I thought of it to use a kind of nerdy philosophical term. I thought of the whole thing as a kind of reductio AD absurdum that if we had a functional informational landscape this is not where we would have ended up so it's really sort of about how information in in technology and media have led us to the place where we're at now and how we got here all right before we get into the topic which is very serious on a lighter note. Perhaps I couldn't help. But I don't know if you've seen this movie on an airplane Longshot. With Seth Rogan. And Charlie's Theon have you heard about this or seen it. I haven't seen it okay. So it opens up with a journalist is sort of Gonzo journalist embedding himself with Neo Nazis and white nationalists and that whole world to write about them so I couldn't help it but picture that but in all seriousness. What was it like meeting people in person? And how hard was it to break into this world. The people I was going to as a whole range that we it wasn't doesn't purely neo Nazis. There were some Neo Nazis. who were very not thrilled about me? Being Jewish and that really became an issue with them way more than I expected. I didn't expect the antisemitism to be so front and center with some people that the Jews are really kind of at the center of their dark cosmology and with them that was really an issue issue. I mean there were people who would talk to me for hours and hours and then sort of halt in the middle of an interview and go wait. You're not a Jew are you and it'd be like come on man if you're your professional antisemites for a living and you can't figure me out your your job so that became awkward. What happened when you said yes? They would kind of get flustered and one guy in particular he had a podcast called the daily show which was his very funny. About the Holocaust he was a real true dyed-in-the-wool Anti Semite right and he would brag to his followers about how he had such good Jew Dr as he called it because they're obsessed with how Jews can pass as white even though by their lights. They're not really early white so he would constantly warn his listeners. You know you guys don't get it but I do. Because I grew up in the northeast. He actually was from this. Very very multicultural. Bucolic Golic New Jersey suburb where his father taught Beowulf at college. I mean he was really like Kinda. The Progressive Dream turned progressive nightmare and his parents ended up disowning in him. And I it was a whole thing and he actually as a sidebar was married to a Jewish woman which was complicated for him so he was his own kind of little Phillip Roth novel all of a person this is just sort of like one chapter of the book but when I start going down that rabbit hole with him and then he finally finds out that I'm Jewish in the middle of an interview. He he gets very flustered. He says you had red hair so that really threw me off. You know and I'm like again. You should have had that on your list of things to watch out for happens. Yeah yeah it does happen but then we kept talking for hours. I suggested that we meet up in person. And he picked a German beer hall for us to meet at and you know they they were constantly trying to throw thrown me off my game and sometimes it worked. I mean I I have to say sometimes. They're they're trolling was effective. Even at the level of kind of unnerving me other times they really didn't and I found it kind of clownish and silly like when I showed up at a German beer hall I was like okay. You know I'm just GonNa sit here and let you do your thing and try to you. Know he tried to have an argument with me about Israel which I did not indulge him in but for the most part the earlier parts of the book I really Kinda turned to the deeper Nazi. Not Stuff after Charlottesville. When it became clear that that was a national issue that I couldn't look away from the earlier stuff was more about what they call the light? As opposed is to the outright people who are misogynist people who are Islam phobic but they fall on the correct side of what they call the J Q which is the Jewish question and these are people who were fine with my being Jewish and they really are more motivated I would say by Sajjan xenophobia and other things and when I was in those spaces I never felt unsafe. I just had to hold my tongue you know and not object to everything I found objectionable or I would never. I wouldn't have been able to fly on the wall for three years. I would have left after five minutes and I just sort of Said Okay my job here as a New Yorker style reporter is to see people up close really get a feel for who they are when they're on their own when they're mask starts to slip and I can't do my the job if I am constantly showing my hands knowing that felt weird and conflict but I felt like I would get better I better servicing the reader by putting putting it in the book than by just doing it in the moment. We're not there to Gawk because you said it just merely to do a late cecile logical observation of these people. So what was your goal with the questions that were driving you and exploring the subject. I was worried about the purely ethnographic. I mean I like a lot of books that are pretty purely ethnographic and just sort of showing what a subculture is or does as you say that the more Gonzo thing. I wanted to stay away from that particularly in our charged moment. I wanted to do something that had a little bit. More Synthesis and analysis in it and so the questions will really one of the basic questions was just okay. The reason techno utopianism is in the subtitle of the book is we had this moment in the early twenty first century when a bunch of young guys. He's like a handful of young men uprooted everything we knew about how information was was disseminated in our society. -ociety they disrupted they innovated. They moved fast and broke things they had no plan for. What would supplant those thing? Even when they were asked they didn't have a clear vision of what this Utopian future would be like. They just assumed will topple. Everything will clear out all the cobwebs of traditional hierarchical means of communication in and then something better will automatically take its place and that to me was the underlying question of the book that the this this tacit and even sometimes explicit faith in American exceptionalism in the arc of history always Kinda automatically inevitably bending toward justice that leads people to have really dangerously naive politics and dangerously naive plans for their technological future. You know I mean. We don't think of things like facebook and twitter and read it as being inherently political. But you know I spent a lot of time reconstructing how those things came into being and I spent a Lotta time physically immersing myself in the offices of read it in particular and watching how they do have a test. Ideology that motivates them and the ideology was the marketplace of ideas will sort it all out and this book was really trying trying to prove demonstratively. That is not the case. The marketplace of ideas has failed to sort it out libertarian approach to the Internet yeah. They were proudly techno libertarian. They were very into you know Liz affair above all and you know it sounds really nice to say as twitter always said we're the free speech wing of the Free Speech Party that obviously obviously in a vacuum all things being equal being pro. Free speech is Great. It's just when you don't hold that intention with other things and when you don't imagine in your mind's eye hi how dark and weird and bad things can get not that they will automatically. I mean I don't WanNa replace the arc of history bending toward justice with an equally sure. Sure faith at the arc of history will bend toward terror. And I mean I'm not that much of a pessimist I'm just trying to replace our faith in inevitability with one of what I call them. The book contingency where lots of different things can happen. You kind of have to have guardrails in place. In case something weird happened and who would have thought given that motto for twitter they would have put a ban on political advertising. Yeah I mean we've come so far away farther than even when I was shopping. This book proposal around things have changed so much in terms of you know to use another kind of stock phrase the the way the overton window on these issues has moved. It has been really surprising to me and look. It's not naturally you can't expect people to anticipate everything but you know one of the analogies. I drive to hosting a party when you start a social media company any. They like to think of themselves as a town square. Or you know public criers or

And I am super excited as excited as one can be as game of thrones fan and just as a pop culture van in general. That's right. We'll be talking a lot about pop culture and the law. And how it relates to things like harassment and discrimination, and the courtroom itself. Now you recovered from the game of thrones. Finale a little bit. I'm so in shock. But at the same time pretty relieved that it's done. There are highs and lows with the season, and I think you probably share the same feelings that I have I mean, there were some epic, epic moments up there like Brienne getting knighted of all things, but that was great. It, it definitely was. You know, they packed ten episodes into six episodes. So if felt pretty rush for everybody, but the resolution I was okay with I, I agree, I agree. I think that was the problem with the season. But at the same time, we got to see the end points that we all thought maybe would come to fruition. And of course, spoiler alert for some of those out there who maybe have not seen it yet. But the what happened with deniers this story arc while I think that was expected, did seem a little bit rushed. But it does pose the interesting question as far as those fans of generes and those individuals who maybe were such big fans of hers that they might. Name their kids. A lot of people have named their children after characters from the show. The weirdest one is there's a pop up in theon. What there's, there's going around really. Naming kid theon, you know at the end. He was a good man. Yes. Redemptive, arc. But when kids grow up to find out who that was that they're named after the biggest one this year has been aria, there's been like six thousand Arias board. And luckily that turned out great down a dark path. There have been a lot of people that have named their children generis, or Kelly C, you know, and that's interesting, especially the thing because I just wanna make sure that everyone understands that her name is not collegiate, that's a title and a series of titles that deniers has, which, of course, is deniro storm born of how star Garin Queen of the and does rowing are of the first man, protector of the realm Queen marine asked the poor and unify breaker of chains mother of dragons, Kalisa, the great grassy.

That's just what's going to happen. No matter what his body is going to be an artifact for for. What comes after him? Now that the leader is dead because there's going to be a power struggle. Right.
