capital one bank usa n eight welcome to brain stuff the production of i heart radio hey brain stuff lauren vogel bomb here the test is legendary in the field of artificial intelligence first proposed by these visionary british mathematician alan turing a landmark nineteen fifty paper the test provides a practical pretty fun way determined if computer has achieved human levels of intelligence turning called it the imitation game it's a computer through eight text only chat convince a human but it's a real person than it passes the test simple in theory nearly impossible in practice turning came up with imitation imitation game in response to colleagues and critics in the late nineteen forties who insisted the machine could never be truly intelligent but turning had more faith in these primitive new machines he called digital computers and that's because touring with the very first to envision something we take for granted today a single machine the can be programmed to do almost anything odds are you're listening to this podcast on just such a machine in brief alan turing with eight british mathematician who came up with the idea of modern computing and breaking played a major role in the ally victory of the nazis in world war two also here's a world class cross country runner who may have qualified the nineteen forty eight olympics if not for an injury but his life would also tragic due to prejudices of the time he was prosecuted in nineteen fifty two for having a fair with another man homosexual acts being illegal in britain until nineteen sixty seven in he accepted a form of chemicals castration condition of probation in order to avoid jail time his security clearance revoked act ending his work for the british government she was found dead assign i'd poisoning in nineteen fifty four though it's still unclear whether his death was a suicide or an accident in twenty thirteen he was pardoned of his conviction by queen elizabeth the second carrying was writing about computers well before any such thing existed back in nineteen thirty six he introduced the concept of universal computing machine and a dense mathematical paper called on commutable numbers and application to the insurance problem this with a decade decade before the first electronic computer would be bumped turn wrote according to my definition a number is computer bowl if it's decimal can be written down by a machine it is possible to invent a single machine which can be used compute any computer bull sequence turns definition of computer bility up something that a computer kundu is what's known today as an algorithm turning was the first to lay out the design framework of the machine the could be programmed to run a series of discreet algorithms in order to achieve desire task mathematicians and engineers had toyed with calculating machines most famously charles babich is nineteenth century analytical engine buttering envision device it wasn't limited to solving one kind of problem we spoke with andrew hodges mathematics professor at oxford university and author of alan turing be 'nigma v inspiration forty after winning twenty fourteen filmed imitation game i just explained anything you could describe as an algorithm can be done by one machine seen the universal machine is essentially what we mean by a computer now something on which you can store instructions end it curious about no one else had formalized that idea from start turning universal machine was conceived as they very simplified simplified form of artificial intelligence even though that term wouldn't be coined until nineteen fifty six i just says the design of universal machine which meant to imitate the inner workings of the human mind subject fascinated turning almost as much as mathematics in fact when describing how his universal machine would work time used the term state of mind to label the different reid and right functions of the machine interns conceptual machine a link the tape is run through eight reid right skinner the tapes inscribed with bits of information information represented by symbols the scanner head can either reid the symbols or right new ones according to its state of mind turning out in his nineteen thirty six paper the operation actually performed is determined by the state of mind of computer anthony observed symbols in particular they determined the state of mind computer after the operation is carried out a decade later when touring with leading the stalled british effort to build wannabe first electronic computers in nineteen forty six he also studied neurology in human physiology on the side the result wasn't internal paper published forty national physical laboratory the model computer could be programmed to learn on its own just sees it as one of the earliest proposals of what are now called neural networks a type of deep machine learning the bleeding edge of artificial intelligence wasn't the only person intrigued by the similarities between human machine intelligence a surge of new technologies develops during world war two including early computers space satellites a nuclear power and captured the intellectual in public imagination i just said as soon as computers are mentioned at all people are talking about electronic brains the possibility of the computer rattling the brain the nineteen forty eight book cybernetics by norbert wiener coined the prefix cyber and wondered whether it would be possible to quote construct a chess playing machine and whether this or disability represents the central difference between the potential realities of the machine in the mind we concluded that's such a machine might very well be as good a player as the vast majority of the human race it was during this era of excitement in nervous speculation about super intelligent machines the turn wrote computing machinery end intelligence what hodges calls one of the most cited papers and philosophical of literature turning begins i proposed consider the question can machines think then since the definitions a machine and things are big you as turning narrow the scope of the question for his purposes the machine must be eight digital computer and the test of whether or not it can think would be answered by imitation game the game now known as the turing test is only mentioned briefly in the paper and hodges says the turning didn't take the details of the test to seriously publishing different versions in other papers buttering did like the playful simplicity of it i just said in a way he was making a drama out of it it presented this idea of the possibility of advanced artificial intelligence in a way that engages people ordinary people would make the decision like a jury in a trial when the tank tests but first published in nineteen fifty turned himself with confidence that intelligent machinery as he called it would be able to win imitation game within fifty to a hundred years so we'll his predictions come true we already have super intelligent computers capable of winning the smartest players in other types of games in nineteen ninety seven i bm's deep blue defeated the reigning champion gary kasparov end watson bp recordbreaking jeopardy champion ken jennings in two thousand eleven but imitation game raises the bar high on artificial intelligence no

Hello my friends. Welcome back as we continue our discussion on green carnation again this week. Let's begin with the question. Do you believe in reincarnation and if so does it's just matter according to two thousand eighteen pew research survey thirty three percent of americans say they believe in reincarnation incarnation yet it is beyond the range of ordinary polling to ask why disbelief exists so then. I have a question for you <hes> what is reincarnation ooh. I'd like to suggest that the simplicity of thinking about reincarnation is to think of the universe as gone instantly recycling itself marta recycles energy recycles inflammation recycles and since our consciousness it is that which gives rise to these contracts matter energy and information since our consciousness business is what is modifying itself as the experience of matter energy and information. It only makes sense that aw to self consciousness is also recycling and is on a journey of evolution russian recycles itself and evolves just like everything else. Evolution is a fact but what is evolving here his a speck of consciousness in a matrix of consciousness so to truly understand what our who recycles you must understand that we have to discard our identity has has body mind and push them because that <unk> person is a constantly changing process in our own consciousness. I would say once you shift your identity from your personality -ality to the silent witnessing awareness in which the personalities not only recycling but evolving then and you realize that the <unk> truly knowing the answer to the question who am i you will realize that you never lose <unk> entity identity shifts identity remains but it shifts from that being a person to the awareness ernest in which the person is changing and evolving phenomenon once you totally understand this that you are not got a body mind universal experience but in awareness in which the body mind universe experiences constantly recycling and it was being then you will understand but intellectually and exponentially what reincarnation really is before we can to.

The market is a fun place to be <hes> trading is avak but it can also play tricks on your mind now for those who have been following me for those of you that i <hes>. There's a few things than just technical analysis that we need to understand. I've been trying for twelve years now and i can tell you right now that <hes> never have more wight in the psychology and the it seems to be that the the longer you've been trading full the more you put this the more the more more you actually understand how important your mindset is and <hes> it's such an important part to your success that goes across any walk of life. It really doesn't doesn't matter whether or not you're you know. It doesn't matter whether or not you're in business whether you're sport play like an athlete with your trading what it might but obviously i'm trying so i'm gonna <hes> discuss it around training mindset the psychology of trading how things work and how your head can be ultimately you undoing all what create success i can tell you from my point of view when i started trading off kennedy trading with an entrepreneurial background and mont. I'd run a little business where i was was from. I was twenty two when i started trying <hes> and basically i was in a position where i was like. I can't do things can make things happen. I can make things work done heison money not a huge amount of money <hes> it was a huge amount of money to me then but i had enough money could <hes> back it myself now because i was also working this house in london. I'm moved to london. This is when i was working. I decided i was going to get into trading. I was going to what my day job and i was going to try to the side until trading actually was able to bomb out of my work. Now that journey began will twelve years ago like i said and what i did was i went wouldn't without entrepreneurial spirit thinking i'll just work out. I'll spend so much time learning about technical analysis you all about technical analysis and that's why you'll fall into my calls. It's not just about technical analysis. I'm looking to take you about how an ascending trying to works on looking at a double bottom because it's a waste of time you don't need to know these things it really complete and utter waste of your time. Simul slipping trend lines. You're not going to learn how to use them because you're not going to be using them. If you tried strategies because i want you to make money and that doesn't help i focused on what works based on my experience scars sign that there's other ways to do it but i'm telling you right now. <hes> for years i tried was slipping chat lines and the second. I got rid of him. My results did change and i got better so it's a psychology. That really pushes you along creates good or bad. Now's really really interesting because from our point of view you know when you're looking at the market. You're always you never take a try. You think is go to lose you. Always take trades. You believe will win. But why is it that when you come back if you're doing the right thing you come back and you look at your screen shot so doing the the right thing in taking screen shots and you look at his screen man. What was i thinking that didn't fit my roles at uh-huh my written checklist. I'm now going and i can totally say that. I was wrong. My mindset was wrong. It was it wasn't the right thing to be doing. It's just that mode that you're in at that time and i say consistency and trading is absolutely a must and that's not consistent senior execution of these specific trite. A following rules does this. It's also the execution from a position of <hes> the same mental maasai mindset position so if you look at one this is why fulfiling really crap. I'll try it if i walked down feeling terrible. I'm not trying to be shop. I'll probably read the markets differently if i was feeling really good so that's psychology comes is into it. It's really really important for you to understand that. The psychology of trading is going to wrap your day up or down. What are they going to feel good. You're gonna feel bad but you've got to get yourself into position where you're in the middle now if you can't do that. Is you know you wake up feeling very good. You got you got it sad or oh. You feel sick or whatever it might be then. Your best bet is just too. I don't feel good if i don't feel good. I'm not going to try because i need to be in the position where i could off feelings aside and focus and trade objectively now something that's getting in the way of you focusing and being objective and that's one of the biggest elements to successful trading wahdat now if you're going to watch that like a thirty three point three three three recurring part of your training i a you've got trend you've got strategy and you've got yourself so as one third of the puzzle to being good china if you cannot get it into the objective mindset if you don't feel up to it then you walk away because you're decreasing your so you're you're increasing your risk of value by thirty thirty three percent. If your head is not in the game so i say to people in the courses i site a guy in my market view. I saw a guy on all the free content eyesight gyn nine and again and again if you're not up for walkaway because this is your money. You're working with on supplying with because it's not a game. You'll trading with your money. It's up to you. You can't blame anyone else so stop yourself from getting into that position of being mediocre of being being average. If you feel good if your head is not in the right spot walkaway because you psychology as i say can make you all break you guys. I cannot stress that enough. The same goes for if you look at the market and the market is down and your poor father. Let's say portfolio aw heavily down. Is that a good time if you're feeling really seco of the sort of freaked out. Is that a good time to be trading. No it doesn't mean you can't try. The whole diet means you. You know you need to have some sort of routine to get you into that month. So that's why i've got routines for everything. It might just be going for a walk for half an hour an hour. Whatever may be going for serve jeff. Whatever go play go play guitar. Listen to music meditate whatever that might be to get you back to that point.

"Hello. My name is Jesse can MRS podcast number four, hundred, thirty, nine for wine abner we teach for rules to help us stop even picked paycheck get out of debt and save more money today I, WanNa talk about covert conquerors. So twenty twenty. What do you say? I just wanted to share a cup we get. We. Get people right in and this is a this is a brag. We get people that write in and tell us how wine Abbas changed their life. They actually will say it's a life changer. and. In light of all of the garbage that we've experienced with covid nineteen, I wanted to share just two stories that users written and shared. So. Here's one now I'm sharing this. Fully aware that everyone's situation is unique. I'm Sharon this also. So that, you can see how powerful the four rules are. I want you to see that if you work these rules, your situation will always be better than if you did not work the rules. So we're all in different spots. Infinitely, different spots. And we all. been the cards are dealt the way they're dealt and you. You can't change that. All I'm saying here is if you work the rules. You will make. A. It will be better for you than if you did not. Budgeting makes things better. It's not the end all be all solution to all things. But if you say all else equal this person budgeted, this person did not budget the person that's budgeting. is going to come out better. So I say that because I don't want someone listening saying well, Gosh. I. Wish this. I, wish that listen follow the four rules. Whether you make ten thousand dollars a year or two hundred, thousand dollars a year follow the four rules. Both those people with wildly different resources will be better off if they're budgeting. So here's a quote. Thanks to COVID. Nineteen Sarcastically I should add thanks to over nineteen. My husband took a thirty three percent pay-cut. We didn't know how we're going to survive. Let alone make it if he lost his job altogether. I've always been in charge of the budget. He's never cared much. We discussed we would really need to stick to the budget air quotes from then on his request was I find a budgeting software that told him when he couldn't spend money? It took me thirty minutes to find why not watch videos that explained it and decide that. Why was the way to go I showed him we set it up and eight weeks down the track not only do we have money lasting in the account for the first time ever? We have a small savings account and haven't really even noticed the huge remember that was thirty three percent pay-cut. We cannot think why enough for sorting us out now obviously, this woman and her husband, they did all the work. But I love reading it. Essentially took a huge pay cut didn't know what they could do. She'd always been running the money. He said, well, find something that will help me to not spend when we can't spend their work in the four rules. With. Thirty three percent pay-cut, they're making progress that they didn't make before when they were making that additional money. So. In spite of covert and the thirty three percent pay-cut, they're making progress. It actually spurred them. Think of the things they're learning that. The things they've learned because they were spurred to take action be proactive find the intention, put the money behind the intention and go. That is that is so powerful. Here you have someone's like, how can you possibly be better off after having had your income blocked off by thirty three percent now I don't know what she earns maybe Sheeran's ninety percent of the money, and so I'm just kidding she wouldn't have written if that were the case but. Maybe Sharon's nothing and it was a true thirty percent. I don't know but she didn't share those details what I'm saying is this. You go from Manda. Situation is horrible you in sort of budget into that situation and now the situation is better. Than before better, you know pre covid everything's pre covet everyone about pre vid always our pretty covered. It was this you know. It's insane. So, here we go. Wind up allowed my now spouse and combine our finances when we started living together instead of joint budget for the common areas. Cool are big was to de before getting engaged and having joined budget. How does accountable to each other? Then when we got engaged and married at set the foundation for us to make financial decisions together awesome the decision making together as the key this is Jessie are talking back to the quote we always consoled enlarge purchases stick to our spending money. It confuses people around us, but we're financially set for emergencies like now with covid where I lost my job and we're suddenly on a single income instead of two. We dropped all the discretionary spending still even a little bit of money to have fun with our son like a weekend ice cream and make decisions on what to cut and how much to say with my husband's salary. It's a tool that allows us have a guided visual conversation on our budget, and we both always know where each line item stands. They went from two income to one. And they're still making it in spite of I mean that's that's a crazy lop off of income and they're still they've still been able to make progress. So sometimes the shocks to the system sometimes these events that just are. No one wishes it on anyone, but sometimes, these various events are what push you to a new place? Maybe they've four scarcity to the tune of thirty, three percent less money or One side of the income dropping off maybe it's forced that. and that scarcely has been thrust upon you has taught you something. So it's not always bad. Sometimes, there really is a silver lining. The key here is that both of these couples were pushing for. The four rules they were pushing that direction. They didn't compromise that in sale budget doesn't work now because we're making less budgeting always works. And I love the fact that in spite of the Lousy Lousy situation that covert is created for millions and millions and millions of people. That we can say, well, when you budget even during a pandemic things are better until next time following APPS for rules and you will win financially you've never budgeted like this.
A New Treatment for Sleep-Eating [60 Sec Psych]
"And today on sixty seconds signed a new treatment for sleep aiding. Toe Pyramid or Topamax may have failed as an anti manic treatment, but it does have small positive trials in impulse, control disorders like Bulimia, gambling, cocaine and amphetamine abuse OCD and aired ability. This study tested it out in sleep related eating disorder. This is a problem where people partially wake up. Eat compulsively and then don't remember what they did the next day that separates it from night eating syndrome where people were conscious and remember the eating. I, the strengths, it was a randomized controlled trial that tested to pyramid three months, weaknesses, small sample size of thirty four patients and a high dropout rate of thirty three percent, although only one patient discontinued topamax due to its side effects. They did however use an intent to treat analysis in other words. They included the last rating for everyone dropped out. The result toe pure mate cut the rate of sleep related eating in half they also lost weight a difference of nine and a half pounds in those three months. Toe Pure. Mate was started at twenty five milligrams a day and raised by twenty five milligrams a week with the maximum dose of hundred milligrams a day, and a mean of one hundred twenty five milligrams a day.
Episode 133 - What is the Real divorce rate in the US
"Welcome to the warrior marriage and Family PODCAST FAMOUS DOCTOR. Corey Gilbert and I believe your marriage and your family are worth fighting for. My goal is to empower you to fight for what matters. Most this podcast is about you. Your family your marriage and children it will include interviews and teaching on a biblical ethic sexuality and gender. I want you to know that you're not alone. That others have walked down the same road and there is victory. Let's get into today's episode. What is the divorce rate in the United States? Have you heard the fifty percent one? It's not true this is really really important. I really believe that a lot of us are have a negative view of marriage. Because we've been duped into believing that one in two of US Linda divorce. It is not true again researcher. Santi Feldon an amazing researcher who decided asked a question and start looking into it. Why where did this come from where to go again? This is weird. I one point. I remember hearing that up to sixty five percents of Christians stamp marriages in divorce. Where do they get these numbers? Their guesses are projections. They actually have no foundation in reality. Based off the research at the highest point it might have been around thirty to thirty three percent of of couples that have been married at all ended up in divorce now the anomalies. You have to think through to kind of take pictures is widows so those have a spouse died and the fact that we have a higher rate of couples not getting married at all and just living together which the data shows is a guaranteed recipe for Disaster Multiple Times over. Because it tends to not just one. It's basically like you're going to multiple divorces even though they think they're being smart in breaks my heart to see that but what are the things that actually decrease the divorce rate from thirty three percent? If that's the highest down into the teens if not less. It's things like attending church. Being active in your church reading the Bible Regularly Prang together. Here's another weird one having a college education yes a college. Education drastically reduces divorce rate. You're someone who thinks deeply and actually analyzes more deeply on things sees the world in a different way there's something powerful about a liberal arts education that impacts someone who thinks in different way and can problem solve and it impacts marriages in impacts families so fifty percent divorce rate. No not true never been true. Maybe in the thirties marriage is actually one of the healthiest place. You can be your healthier as a male and as a female in your body your physical health emotional health your spiritual health. The whole of who you are. It tends to better person if you're married in one of the statements. I saved a lot of couples is please Mary. Well because it can be hard can still be good. Even when it's hard but man. If you marry that person that can become your best friend it is stellar is beautiful and I hope that for you. I hope if you don't have it you'll fight to get it. You'll fight to build what you have into something that you're proud of that. You have a strong healthy marriage. Thank you for tuning in to the warrior marriage and family.

Are Canadians Polite to their Voice Assistants?
"Hello, it's Terry Fisher here. It's Monday hope you're doing well. I've got an interesting little news story today, and this comes out of that was reported in Canada's Internet factbook, basically comprehensive look at Katie Internet usage habits during the era of covid nineteen, so get ready for this. They looked at how people Canadians were interacting with their voice, activated assistant, whether they were polite or not, and so let me ask you questions and see if you can guess these numbers and I'll tell you the answers. What percentage of Canadians say please and thank you to? Their Voice activated assistance. And what percentage of Canadians have sworn at? They're voice activated assistant. What do you think? All right well here. The numbers and I'm pleased to report that seven in ten Canadians so seventy percent of Canadians say, please and thank you to their voice activated assistant and. One third so three in ten or thirty three percent of Canadians have sworn at. They're voice activated assistant, so I'm quite happy to hear that we are living through reputation, and even if it's Lexi that we are speaking with, we are still being polite and Most of us are saying. Please and thank you. I generally do say that actually and. A minority of quite surprised in some ways at three hundred percent of us are swearing. Anyway there's a little bit of information for today. Hope that you find that interesting and have a wonderful day. We'll talk again, call. BRIEF CAST DOT FM.

It's not happening. It is not happen. Ne- but I am extremely happy. I am extremely extremely happy. Yes yes it is true it is true the spirit animal is back spirit. Animal is back and I don't know what it is anymore. I'm still trying to figure it out because the spirit animal came back recently and we're trying to work out the terms that agreement we're trying to work out. The terms of the agreement into spirit. Animal allows me to continue to see in dance in a g ride because there's been a been a few. There's been a few weeks pads. Bot where there's been nothing happening. Nothing popping up nothing going on within the jeep ride for a singing dancing. It wasn't even discovery motives. Just get in two point. Eight won't be point eight to point B. and just go ahead and trying to get going we're trying to give them going in and remain extremely focused on net remain extremely focused on that still working on or improving densification game. Because you know you know you don't like the turn signal you know you like dry slow in the fast lane. You know you like to do things where it makes other people stretched ahead not I because I am prepared. I've seen it all in. I haven't seen it all over. It hasn't taken place yet. I just haven't imagined it and I pretty much imagine everything imaginary peeps imaginary peeps back singing dancing in a Jhirad not the discovery music but to music diet. No songs that I know so you deep deep into the song deep deep into the motion of se nets. Think about this. That is the thing about. This is not about me per se. It's not about the dancy. No and it's definitely definitely not about to sing. It's about what the artist is allowing me to do. It's what the artist is allowing me to channel that energy and I definitely want to continue to keep that same energy and with this new spirit animal coming around and with this new spirit animal being here for me year is it is all to the good. I am happy. And that's what a capital H S with a capital H. I'm happy and I've been singing dancing energy ride in. I haven't had the opportunity to work on anticipation game as of late because Low to route or highway or highway. There hasn't really been any other people on their spent a few vehicles here there before the most part it's like I'm in my own world. Yes it's like I'm the only one out there. It's always sort of like that because when I'm pressing my I believe but I'm doing my I happy. Dance along with making chess pop however however that is very very dangerous in. I am going to adjust that you don't try to ETA home. You do. Not Trotted home. Lead that the professional leave the making chess pop and during the happy dance at the same time lead that the professionals the rest. Please don't try please. Don't try because it's dangerous. It is dangerous. And especially if the conditions don't allow you to be able to maneuver and when I mean maneuver. It's like when you when you when you when you do a little role do row which chest that maneuver because once you do that maneuver you gotta go directly into the happy dance if you can't do that properly if you can't do it properly you might lose control and if you lose control trust me. Albie very very sad. I'll be so said please but I have been having this opportunity to do all of this and it's been real real meaning that there hasn't been that many people on the highway a few here there and so I don't have to press the either leave but I don't have to imagine it is. It is happening. It is happening in real time. It is happening for real for real and so I tried it out. I tried it out. You know went from A to B to C and back to aid not not all in one swoop though not all in one swoop in there. There's some there's some of the letters to involve but for the SAKE OF ARGUMENT. Let's say round trip round trip and getting in with nobody else. It's a little different. It was a little different. If felt like by world and everybody else's living in it it felt like it was just me and that is it. Wow I didn't know I didn't I? This would be something that I would enjoy. I thought this would be something that I would want to do. More often than not it was not the case. It was not the case in just didn't feel right. It just didn't sit well granite. A Noah got the new spirit animal. And we're trying to get used to each other back. I don't even know what it is right now. I don't know what it is right now. Still trying to get used to that but even with me trying to get used to that. They're still certain things. That should still should be a standard. It's still certain things that should be consistent enough. Come on. Let's keep that same energy. Let's keep that same energy. Now if this continues on this is a prolong event if something is going to go on for months and months and months and months and months and maybe a few years I dunno my handle it. I don't handle it but I'll pull it together because being the leader of the Mount Breeders disciplines in a job that I accept it. This was a job that was rushed upon me amongst you the being that I have to continue to do what it takes to do. The right thing at the continue to do what it takes to be correct now. Perfect because the I. I don't like perfect. I don't like perfection. No it's it's not good at it is more is more negative that comes with it than positive and I already have way too much negative energy denim just trying to knock away trying to fend off. Don't need the negative energy that perfection is going to bring so go go away driving with no one else no one else. They're singing dancing. Happy dance just popping and going from all of that and just who of course? I really didn't have anything to focus on. I really didn't have anything to take my mind away. I really have anything to anticipate. I really have anything else to make. This seems like it was real. And that's that's the real rule. I just don't know if this is something. That like granite. It's only been it's been so long it's only been so long. GonNa give it a chance not gonNA make any promises to myself definitely. GonNa make any rain checks because the debris in check being the rain check business which is not the one reaching out to go out when maybe when I'm no longer leader malpractice. Maybe when I'm no longer no longer have all of these responsibilities Dan. I'll think about it but as of now I just can't call it as a now. I just I just can't it's different. It's odd it's peculiar. I'M NOT GONNA say we're definitely not going to say awkward. Even though even though there was an awkward moment I have to say singing dancing in a g ride when there's no one else around. Are you really singing and dancing in Jira? If there's no one else that you know what's there but no one else does so. Can't you just do that anyway? Isn't that the definition? Hey I'm just happy. That spirit animal is back. I don't WanNa think I just want to hope and wish hope and wish in wishing hope that intuition and gut feelings come back but I just going to be happy with one out of three thirty three percent depending on what game we're playing. That might be good depending on what Kane? We're playing at might be bad but right now we're just going to say that's amazing is my favorite word.

Hello the internet and welcome to one. Fifty eight episodes six of dirt. I heart radio This is a podcast where we take a deep dive into america shared consciousness. It's thursday november fifth twenty. Twenty five names jack. O'brien aka jacko biden. Yeah people jack. Oh hell yea oriented. Here's the deal. Jack o'brien here's the deal jack. O'brien thank you for the live punch-up we go Well i'm thrilled to be joined by my co host mr miles. That's another vote for blue to looks like trump's term is through three the gop my mind allows this presidency and pull another vote for a close to seventy trump as we can stop by like shutout at waffle house that possible premature football spike aka. We will not know until the cary's results have fully come in But i think it might be called by people here this to the yes. There's one thing of where it's called and then another if trump's completely just fires up the base to be like bridge yeah shall be true. Yeah i can be true. And also we can have a little fun with brian. Mcknight's everybody's being very careful with their calls Because they don't want to be accused by the right of being like in the bag but then by being very careful with their calls. They're going to give trump more time to start. Start some shit anyways. We're thrilled to be joined in our third seat by the hilarious the talented francesca. If you're intini well as that was the sexiest. This elections ever been miles. Oh man yeah. Liz jenkins viral tweet. I have a feeling inspired that one. Teaching like what what is it. Was it nevada counting down in nevada. Very slow but very slow sensual. Would it can eat focus. Boys demand doing it right. You see the clip brian. Mcdonagh's brian mcknight. The clippers. hope is wild. Like i couldn't tell are the people are the women who were sitting around singing to the song just part of the audience or they like backup singers. 'cause all for the official video where it's like when it's the live performance. Yeah the live performance that he's making like very sensual and loving eye contact with the camera as he sings to me. Yeah i don't know we'll just he's like i feel like have these videos or just You like a circle poof. In the middle of a of age rotating hot women with their backs to one another. And then there's just spins and more. Brian mcknight in front. No this is very much more traditional like it feels like. Vh one live tv performance. Gotta gotta get it. Felt like a like a. He was performing it on oprah or something to me. I don't know why it felt like that to me anyway. Francesca what have you been up to these past days. How of you spent the election. I mean fitting just mostly angry. I think you know there's no other way around it. I know it calm. And then anger just sheer anger. I've had less anxiety than i think. A lot of people But i'm just like just like twenty sixteen. I feel like this. We re living twenty sixteen but but actually democrats might pull through but the anger at kind of everyone in the not just the gop but the establishment is very much still alive. Like nate silver needs to go away forever. Ever ever and ever and still mostly right you understand the algorithm like just. He's no no pollsters. We all knew this. Yeah and so. I'm just kind of angry. I'm angry at the democratic party. Of course for like this squeaker angry about the squeaker but other than that like kind of zen. Because i feel like you know. We knew that we were going to have to wait. So what did you think though based on like all the messaging now is having. Because i feel like most you know leftist progressives. Were watching me. Like what the fuck is this message bro. Like your guys are fucking by that. Yeah like about like if you're trying to energize a large intersectional base of people to like have a huge. I guess turn out. It just didn't seem like the messaging was there was just very look. Y'all get man like shitty all right. Come on yeah come on. That was enough to get the most turn out In the history of america in terms of the raw number which i kind of dismissed as a stat because our population is bigger. Every time there's an election but also the biggest sin seventy two in terms of percentage of the population. Which if you just take a percent of eligible voters times the percent of the population that was registered to vote. It's thirty three percent of the population. Which is more than like reagan when he had a landslide eighty four so make it obligatory man lotus up on vans bias off with a sandwich. The way they do in south america it's obligatory but What happens when voting is obligatory as politicians have to talk about poverty. So like the democrats would actually have to do that. So that's good but yeah yeah. Thirty three percent is awesome and sad at the same time. Nobody francesca if you like your private health insurance you can keep that. Are those people you know when you're hanging around the fireside coil trump fire yeah around your oil drum fire and you see the light in your friends is and he's like you know what even though i don't have a place to live like i just love the billing system of kaiser. Yeah i got from the library. And i got the knife. That's pretty sharp. So i'm gonna ask you take out appendix for me But yeah i i was gonna say. Trump is also like trump had more a bigger percentage of the population. Vote for him than reagan did in the eighty four Landslide election so there were a massive number of people motivated on both sides. It's just they're both motivated by trump. I think right. And if georgia ends up getting going blue blue I'm curious to know what the agenda going to be for. This administration were yet again. Black and brown votes. You know hyper pull up in force to try and tip this thing because again The upholders of you know defacto. Racism also came out in full force. But yeah i'll curious to see what those priorities end up looking like for somebody who's like We don't have to really look at police reform Revoked for me. Those are going to be the story of arizona and georgia poll for pull out for biden. Those that's just the story that's the whole story and the fact. That trumpism is not going anywhere anytime soon. Yeah there's a mandate from black and brown people to get done if anything if you wanna look at. I mean that's how they should be looking at it but for sure we'll see who does seem like biden's response has been like well. I got a govern four. These people on the right as well so have to take weight supremacy into account. His wasn't his like sort of soft victory speech. Like i'm the president has to be forever buddy. Both sides right jack. So if you want a public option and Get price gouged on the private side to whatever you look. This is they go with with Those speeches like yeah. I mean they're good enough in terms of where we think we're gonna get pull through in pennsylvania. We think we're going to pull through zona and we keep counting the ballots. And that's good enough for now. But you're absolutely right. Miles like as soon as mega supporters come out and real force and as soon as the president actually realizes he's lost and is like no no no. It was all fraudulent than that. Like middling mealy mouth like let's just we're gonna win like you know. You need to ratchet that up hard core and we'll see if even has it in him or if it's going to just kind of like you know you. Can't it got the election. We got it like there needs to be some manner of systemic change Asked by yes. Big structural chain an owner of child. It's got i've and francesca. What's something from your search history that is revealing about what you're up to all that good stuff. Oh god this is. This is pretty good. Because i did Like punditry and coverage for a really big argentine youtube channel. That does like comedy and news together every day and the guys are like they're so smart. They're fast. They speak really fast and i lived there for many years for five years but man. My spanish is so out. It's just rusty a shit and so like here. I am my iguana. Joe santa okay owning. Meanwhile this guy like this argentine. Explain the entire american system. Better than i could. And i was like. Why do you need me. But in one word bus suda. Ea app but the real thing is like If you're semi bilingual and you want to read more in spanish and it's so hard to just be like oh let me attempt to read. Cnn us soledad. Like one hundred years of solitude again for the twelfth time. After i fucking have no idea what's going on because magical realism and like being an english language speaker. Do not work. It's very difficult to understand. So i'm like. I was looking up young adult spanish language books because i can't read hardship so i've read all the Hunger games in spanish so fun and super on my like level of reading reading level. And so now i think i'm going to read the fault their stars or something. I might even do harry potter in spanish. Because i've never read it in english but trying to get if anyone has suggestions for like a good way Even in spanish. I don't know if they've got their you know i don't know if there's a famous latin american y a writer but as what. I need just like sixth grade. Shit talk about crushes in like you know. I don't know getting your period for the first time Love remind phoenicia. I think might be good. Infinite jest book. Dude i read. Okay get this. Sorry not to go on. But i read haruki murakami the wind up bird chronicles in spanish. And actually it made total sense. Because i didn't understand a word. I read the whole thing same thing. What is something. You think is underrated. underrated. This is hard for me. open racism. like it's kinda more into it. Y'all russian like yeah you can sorta get away with it now. And i think can totally get a somehow. We're missing that open. Racism actually wins. elections is incredibly effective and mobilizes. A bunch of people i think there were gop understanding. I'm never ceases to amaze me. Obviously i'm being facetious. We shouldn't get into open racism. Holy shit how it's worked wonders. Yes how how powerful. It is in the united states for sure. Yeah more than like the mismanagement of like candidates or you know a direction of election or campaign like the pain that 'cause i think just that confirmation of just how you know pro white supremacy. A lot of people are whether they fully understand the nuances of their support trump or not but just to see like on a binary yeah. I like that better. That was probably like the hardest thing to just sort of re be confronted with again. But aren't like i was saying i think yesterday to i don't know in a way like sort of helped validate my sort of cynicism about the about the country to without being like i'm just like a doom and gloom america hater more than like no. No no this is where this is where we're at y'all like this is this is what it is. Yeah and i think the ways that michael. Harriet of the route had a good tweet thread. This is the tweet i like. But just explaining the ways that yeah if he grew in percentage points trump grew in percentage points with a black voters and latino voters. It's because racism you can be racist and be any race and everyone pretty much lives in a system of white supremacy and we are racist whether we know it consciously or unconsciously and it's always been a meal ticket for model minorities or people who wanna throw their communities under the bus to supposedly get ahead economically and socially and he tracks like italians and irish catholic italians were the most racists because they were the the on the receiving end of so much racism themselves. They then turned around. And we're like will word gusting distinguish ourselves from black americans by being extra races. So it's like it's worked in the past and so it doesn't doesn't boggle my mind to see latino and especially white latino voters going for trump. I mean have you. If you've seen the sammy sosa pictures of like him with the extra like kind of terrifying skin white and shit like that bad. that's great it's just like extra getting way more like white supremacy And yeah internalized quits. Yeah and i think that's that speaks to a lot like a survival mechanism which is like i just maybe need to cozy up to my oppressors to a less turbulent time And sometimes people really feel that that is the easier path for perceived comfort or cause not liberation. While they've definitely group you were like no. That's not that any liberation that ain't it cozying up to my professors not liberation. Where does something you think is overrated. Francesca propositions propositions in measures on fucking alike on these ballots. Like we're in california and so much is being thrown to ballots. That shouldn't be. We just passed prop twenty two giving an exemption to uber and lift and like baking in some impossible like impossibility away to basically never send it has to be overturned by seven eighths of the state legislature. So much is put on these on our ballots that we shouldn't opine not look. I don't even know if we should opine on. I don't even know if we should all vote for president. Even though i just said maybe we should it should be obligatory. Democracy might be overall overrated. That's what i've learned. Just maybe we shouldn't have an opinion and that's the thing with these propositions it's like you get a glossy flyer you don't know you kinda like it's definitely one of those you know if you don't know the answer on the scantron test just like fill in any bubble plan leader. Drank like leave him. Yeah but then we've got like california made all almost zero progress. I know there is a little bit but almost your progress on statewide level when it comes to our ballots and propositions why are we. Why are we weighing on dialysis. Why are we weighing in on random. Shit that should be left to legislators. I think it's like having any kind of industry be able to get into these ballot. Initiatives is just. It's the though darkest shit that we have especially like in our voting systems. Because you'd look at how much money they spent. I saw some stat like they put more money and then bernie's fucking presidential campaign raised into like over two hundred million dollars. Went into this shit when you think of like again we talk. We've been talking about this proposition. We're like spend the fucking money to treat these people like employees not fucking automatons. I just need like like. Oh we'll give them a little bit of oil and fuel and water and they'll be okay like these are human beings who are putting in their labor to fucking kick the money up to these fuck anyway. So it's just it's it is really disheartening. And i think a lot of people a lot of the times. I whenever i like a lot of people have like what what what about. This one doesn't always just look at the fine print. I when you get these mailers 'cause you paid for something and sometimes it'll be euphemistic like the alliance of concerned rideshare provider. They're always concerned the average time. Someone's concern you're like are you though. Yeah i feel like that's a dead giveaway that you're dismantling what we're talking about. Oh no this is a this is from. The coalition of concerned capitalists and profiteers the ccc p. And you should really check it out. But even with like the dialysis one it was like paid for by the co. Like the fucking dialysis industry. And you like of course. I'm allison's kleenex. Yeah if they want it. Say fuck you anytime. These people come and they're backing. Something always say absolutely. I don't need to back. Fuck fucking pacific gas and electric or whatever. I just wanted to say that if and when The rich figure out how to turn poor people into fuel goober and lift drivers will absolutely be like putting their little pinkie toe into their fuel into the gas tank. And just last part of it and you'll be like hey if you give up three of your toes you get a thousand dollars this week. All right i'm reading. It does well. do you have a kid. Yeah how old. How old is your kid fourteen. Okay yeah we can work with that. They got all their number is thrilled to partner with kroger brands. To give out like money coupons for groceries for a thousand miles driven for people who aren't in a state you know that does ballot initiatives. It's basically like they do a yes or no vote on some legislation. Right and mike. Question is like on the dialysis right. So that became a question where somebody wanted to regulate more strictly dialysis clinics and basically have a doctor make it mandatory to have a doctor on the premises of dialysis clinics For the health of the people who are receiving dialysis and that becomes a ballot initiative in california in a state where there aren't ballot initiatives that would presumably just like go to the desk of one of the politicians like what. What is the difference. There like does the ballot initiatives to be a work around. I think it's a round of the legislation to end. You can easily manipulate manipulate. The legislature of the fossil fuel industry has been doing that here in california for years We can't get the most minimal Regulations when it comes sued the environment. Here but i think it's an easy way to sidestep the legislature and just kind of do people by putting thing that sounds like government outreach overreach or sounds like free whatever it sounds like sounds like freedom. It's like getting people to participate in their own oppression by convincing them with a bunch of advertising dollars of something i i guess my question is just like is the alternative that they're just using that money to pay off the politician to like do the same thing probably and like where i just wanna know like. There are some legislators in oregon high as fuck on cilla sivan for the suicide in ledge illegally pass and like good on them like i know like big shrooms lobby came through. Yeah i mean nydia who has now officially like it's been announced. She won her election against shitty s. David ru One of the things that somebody was pointing out when they were a writing about that is that one of the things that was new. This time is that it happened in an election year. So you had like more people paying attention to it. More people voting whereas that election usually happens in an off year and so it's much easier for people just to like people who are like moneyed interests to get elected because they just sort of manipulate the boat but that was something that was determined by a ballot initiative lake in two thousand sixteen. I think that it would be an on. Yearns had an off year. So i guess i'm just wondering w our toward like times it. You can get like a populist thing through that otherwise wouldn't have gotten through like silla side or something like voting when people are actually voting In red states. it's actually really great. Because they for example of pass medicaid expansion in places that don't wanna pay in span medicaid They've passed minimum wage laws. That they pass reinforcing former felons in florida. What happens there. of course. Then they're republican. Legislators are like nancy cpap will not into the popular will and then return it so it just depends on what state you're in. Yeah yeah but yeah it if a both because again i. I remember when i was working more on campaigns like when i worked on was four to get higher clean energy standards in the state by twenty thirty and then it was a small group of people who were just like. This is something good. This is like what we need to do. This is two thousand seven and then you get inevitably like brace yourselves for every utility company to just obscure the entire message which wasn't even like about getting to renewable energy standards that were like going to help with the state on a path towards like you know doing a good job offsetting carbon emissions. It was like they are trying to raise your electrical prices with a fatally flawed argument. Like they love that term to fatally flawed. But yeah it's it all. It sucks like with uber. One it's exactly it's the win. It cuts the other way reflecting the state department. They're like man. Fuck that the courts decided you have to see. These are employees man. You've start treating them like that and like. Oh yeah will now. We're just gonna fucking hypnotize people with you know mid roll ads on like streaming services in glossy mailers california's a blue state. We can't have any finance like campaign finance laws that allows that to be illegal for a corporation to put that much money behind something or front shadow groups. Then do that lake camman the next our federal elections and then i mean that's a first amendment shit. Come on got you gotta give corporations the ability to spend billions myers to express themselves. They are citizens. Corporations are people than they should die at. Some point only lived leg of an american should also be able to go to prison for life. I believe j. p. morgan chase is a mutant. How long they've been around.

So the people who i've seen saying about as basically callable are people who haven't called arizona yet so like we were talking about up top. I feel like people are scared to call the election to be the first to call the election because There is no the deal that's going to unleash from cunanan and The president and But yeah so there's people who say nevada's callable there's people who say callable if you put those together you have Biden at two hundred seventy electoral votes. But nobody is saying both those things at the same time. Because i think they're scared. Oh yeah it's it's led to this really interesting thing because when aren't in michigan the guy who Controls fox decision desk. You know it was like very firmly was like no. I'm not calling for the. I'm calling it for biden. There's this whole story that are yeah. Arizona was for biden. And there's all this pushback. Apparently like jared kushner was like desperate and like calling people at fox news channel. Don't where you're trying to do that. But i think that was also. It seems like a lot of you were saying. That was a decision from fox to not allow the president to begin gaining momentum. Awesome like fuck ary based narrative of like what happened here. I was headed on like nope. We're not doing that. And that's why they were. Maybe a little more aggressive with that call. Yeah i have. They said that. Or that's just a theory as to like why eerie been aggressive war. I think that. I mean because if you look if they did capitulate and we're like oh yeah trump one or maybe just didn't even call it that would make the at least the numbers that a lot of Like channels were putting up in the electoral college score so to speak. Look a little bit closer. And then you'll be like what's going on. But i think by having arizona so solidly saying oh we're saying that's for biden already sort of changes the narrative in the sense of like. Oh victories imminent for the biden campaign. Most likely if arizona just went what also makes it so that he can't have a unified message of stop. The counts right because arizona gives by the white house and so if he stopped the count. Their biden's ahead so now you have to. Trump has to do this thing where he's like stopped the count in these states in particular and then keep counting in this other state in particular and just sounds transparently like bullshit i well. There's no other way you can probably a coincidence and not like fox news as grand plan to undermine the trump administration just because they've actually done this before their decision desk has like called states before anybody else and oftentimes. It's for the democratic candidate. And i feel like they have the licensed to do that because ed have really good like a polling department like they actually are very independent from the opinion section but also they don't like their the one place that's not worried about being said to have a liberal slant so they can just do what they want because they don't. They're not worried. That fox news is going to call them liberal on now they're all their followers hate them. Yeah this is why fox news sucks right. that's why we're seeing streaming is screaming it. I mean but but it's like the rubber is really hitting the road here when it comes to is the moon made of cheese because the president said so or is it not and this is but it's just numbers it's like do we have. This is the moment of alternative facts. Right we haven't really had to steer it down so starkly because it's been four years of a trump presidency and so he can just make it up and fox news will go along because that's the propaganda but this is a test of loyalty and you risk putting your entire network. I mean god. They've already completely ruined themselves. But when it comes to factor fiction numbers are not numbers. Two seventy electors are not to seventy electors. Because the truth is he. They wanna stop counting. But no one's gotten a to seventy so you kinda have to start count. Continue to count. And if you stop right now biden wins by all by all measures. Except no one's gotten to seventy yet so it's like it's do you put your entire network like at the behest of the trump administration or not. Do you burn your credibility or not and whatever credibility. You have what's left. Yeah so the surprising move though. I'm actually proud. Yeah even reading. Like how desperate apparently all these reports of desperate jared kushner was like trying to get rupert murdoch on the phone like i feel like in a movie. You wear like if you're doing the going to drink maga- tears dramatization of this like cookies. Running down a hallway. Banging and mr murdoch mr duck. And he's like armed. Sorry jared we help you today right. And then it's their reach bass is always win. Like i don't know what that dynamic is like but that's what i see in my head and you realize too. Is these lawsuits and all these other things. Keep failing and they're flailing is getting more intense. You hate mlive to see it. Murdoch's going to be fine. I'm just thinking of his money. Making enterprise like he was going to be fine. He doesn't need trump to keep making bogus bullshit. Right wing propaganda content. It will actually be kind of a great tool if they are part of the so-called resistance and opposition. They can because they'll finally be the victims that they've always said they are right. Yeah that's what i'm saying. They can never terrible being empowered. They're only good at being the out of power group because that's all they have like all this. It doesn't make sense to cry like unfair foul. Play when you're at the wheel of everything. It just doesn't work like that. It's like well then fucking do it. You had every fucking chamber locked up and the one time one thing. They're good at as they get to spend as much money as they want to and not tax anybody because they're not criticizing themselves to get to like spend responsibly like they accused democrats of doing and that's like they're one superpower when they're they're in power. I'm glad to hear that. You think rupert murdoch's going to be okay. I was a little for. The trump apparently called him on election. I there was like a call from the president. Donald trump to rupert murdoch. With the fuck you do with this call and rupert murdoch. Like i'm not i'm not pulling it back. Homie like it is what it this election. Night tuesday yeah when they called their zone thing. He allegedly called him on that and complained that he had called it a too early. And also i do want to say that arizona has now also been called by a the ap which are notoriously pretty conservative about calling things so it's not like rights right so i mean like you got p. calling arizona. You got our favorite guy nate silver. Who has been saying that. Like he didn't even think arizona should have been called but he's like nevada should have been caught like nevada as far enough so now it seems like we're there and it's just a matter of lake the single announcement also like georgia to georgia and georgia. Because we're looking at now is they're saying there's forty seven thousand votes over forty seven thousand outstanding votes left and that's more than most people thought was. Yeah even case biden has to. He can win those by an even lower margin. Yeah they're saying that. That one might end up being like as like florida in two thousand clothing. Mood that jack. Well but it won't. It won't be the it won't be the deciding state because get him there. And then they say pennsylvania's ninety rain particularly close widens because biden in terms of the mail in vote biden only to win sixty percent of outstanding mail in vote when they're the mainland votes there county. He's winning at a rate of seventy eight percent in georgia are all over in pennsylvania. Got like where they're pulling from are not Republican strongholds like there are trump votes out there. But the what's what's left on. The plate is like The grid to me there is. I'm very very calming map. And an important one to look at which is looking at the vote by population and not by giant red swats fruits and Just everyone needs to look at that map and just remember that. doesn't vote Cows can't vote. they should be able to. I'm not saying livestock shouldn't have the vote that's slogan in two thousand twenty four for the gop but all the stuff can probably be safely forgotten about by the time you listen to this assuming somebody has Called called the election by the trump campaign. Let's let's move over to the shadow realms where they are it's wild. I was watching cnn this morning. And they were broadcasting from las vegas and the dude who was like targeting. About how like they're dead. People voting in nevada was like the angriest kid from like pickup basketball court. That i played at in college like this dude who i was like always like that. There's something off about that man like he grew up to be one of these trump. This guy right crabby foul everything. How man no not yet. This entire election though i mean because it really is a game that has rules that you know there is a. There's cheating or not cheating everyone's using the same analogy of like playing sports with a sore loser. I e the kid used to babysit. Who like let's score on you a million times and then you'd score one thing. We like nah on timeout. Except this an analogy. It was actually. That guy was the guy who is making the speech by friends. Were like all text. And they're like holy shit. Wait no you're oh later literally literally the guy. Yeah yeah no no. No no no no. When i was an undergrad he was in law school. And just the biggest asshole at the court. Let's let's go. Let's go play with him on this show. Yeah like. I don't think i exchanged a word with him. He was just such an angry asshole that he was like notorious among our friends. As being like the guy who there's always no matter what unlike as mayor play any sport at park. There's always that person no matter what the sport is. There was when i go out and play soccer at the park. There's a guy we call full. Kit wanker Or old messy because you aware entire head to toe. Barcelona messy uniform a balding detail. He would do all these fuck he would always act like you fouled him shit and yeah so like past it and he would like you just awful to play with because he fucked the flow that game up and like made it all about him so yeah. I'm glad to see that you see you can actually watch that evolution of park asshole to fucking screaming politico or whatever my friend research on him and apparently like his. He had a relative who was a politician. There's like some His dad not acknowledging him because he was an out of wedlock child thing going on. It's also made me feel sorry for no no. No no no jon snow of pickup basketball. The john exactly. Except instead of funneling it into stoicism he funneled into just being angry and full of shit which as bannon put it they are utilizing the steve bannon method of and this is a quote flooding zone with shit. That's how steve bannon describes what what what they did with trump administration with the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen It does seem like they are really itching to do something that we brought up from the year. Two thousand the brooks brothers riot. Where a bunch of preppy republicans in a blue blazers like broke into the miami dade Courthouse where they were accounting doing the recount and basically got it suspended by being cure. This voter fraud. What you guys are doing. And that actually was the end of the vote because then the supreme court froze the recount process. So they're trying to do something similar to that. But they don't seem to have the wherewithal at least not as of yet and they also don't like i was saying earlier like florida was a recount that was on like literally a knife. Sandra was like depending on. If you counted the votes that had been pushed in too much or were like pushed the wrong way gore or bush. One like it was just like that close whereas now it's like across four states that by and they're trying to wear what would they fuck in that was for a recount wasn't revolt wasn't over stopping. The vote counts rake the sequences all fucked up but everything and i mean everything in two thousand was so shady like an immediately jump to the supreme court right that had to go through. I mean did it have to go through the through the florida supreme court or was it federal court that was an appointee and then so just like the gears were absolutely greased upwards toward lake Handed over to the supreme court. Jeb bush of course as the governor And i want twenty years of my life back. I've said this time and time again but give me my years back. Please thank god please. Thank god this. Motherfucker is not good at the stuff that he will also people have. He's not coming from a dynastic political family either. Where like you know. The homes are all working in spots trump. My dad's been but like with this. You know what i mean like. You'll be like jack if you're trying to get into basketball like you have familial connections where like you probably find a way to maybe end up in some back room team not as a coach or whatever. Because you're you're familiar in that industry. So trump you know could be the starting point guard for the miami trump. Everyone's like fucked just like there's not the same. He's not coming the same place in already. He's fucking up already like the table that a lot of these republicans had set tacky about it. This is the thing that the supreme court has told them multiple times. they're like. Oh yeah you could ban asylum but like don't be so flagrant you know. Give us another case will totally say yes to it but you know like a pass it through some lawyers that actually know what the fuck they're doing and then we'll be all good and they're like nam board. I'm tired of that already like you know. They've been told multiple. Times are just bad at being fascists and now what's so scary 'cause it's like a blueprint for the for the next on how to be a better one like how to not be a fascist and avoid all these things a little more slick de-racialized all your language and then you can get a little more momentum going lay. I feel like most court like with like anything a court or judge season. The trump like any apparatus at all in terms of lawsuits. Like going through like okay. Let me just go through this. Most of these sheets are blink that you've got just has swastika on it and black and brown bad. Yeah i don't know yes. We gotta stop the vote your honor. We have to stop the vote. Yeah jesus christ. You're just being dismissed immediately. Like they're like you know what we'll look at it. you know. Obviously this is timely. Let's look at it. Yeah none of this is anything the you don't even have an argument here. Have you talked about yesterday. I don't know if you've talked about but you know. They sent eric. Trump and giuliani to pennsylvania for crickets. Press conference. I forgot who eric trump was this morning. That's that's my first sign that my brain is broken but also that we're moving in the right direction. I was always name. Eric trump. The that's when you know he's he's in it to win it and all they got just just still lowest energy scammers. Yeah i mean like they even like i. You know a good scam when you see when you're like oh shit okay. I can see how you can sneak that one by these people are like they only have the first thing they wanna say out loud. That's like incendiary and have not done any thinking about what follow up questions could occur and how to navigate that because it is in jail dude if cohen cohen. We're on the case. I feel like i'd be more scared. Red scare mucci. I feel like you do a better job right now. But pam pam bondi bondi bondi toys. She was on fox and again coming on saying that they're like she was at this point. There are fake ballots in pennsylvania. Okay and she says it's on fox. And you know steve doocy asks a follow up question because you know that's a pretty like if true then huge saying there are fake ballots and we would love to see some receipts and the way she just pivot. Just listen to this really low energy scam that discounts on november fourth. That discount every legal vote that came in so that means all the relevant good residents who are all supporting us in pennsylvania their votes. Don't count by these fake ballots. That are coming in late one observation. They're not letting us watch the process. Did you say fake ballot. There could be. That's the problem. I fuck pay nine one one this. This man is breaking into my house. I'm sorry you're breaking someone's breaking into your house. There could be you. Just you just call nine one one ma'am so i need to know somebody but i don't know that's why we've to figure that out you guys are supposed to find out right even that even that makes more sense. This is like you know. Oh we'll some people tried to use a coupon at target a day late air. Go everyone who got a coupon before. All invalid nano. They owe us money and is like and again. We're we know what she's saying. She saying any mail in ballots that were received after the. The date of the election are fraudulent. Somehow which is by the way like hundreds. It's not that many like it's not. It's not enough to swing things one way or another. Like i'm so spoiled in california because in san francisco i was voting. And like i remember. I was like so excited about this election. Do you think. I voted early. Hell no i voted by mail. Put my ballot day of in the mailbox and we'll elect. They'll count it so gagi and because they will and they did and so. Many lay ballots were actually way more progressive and whatever still didn't get the candidate i wanted but the point is is yes day of mail-in happens. Yeah yeah. I mean in in a just world. It's very easy to vote in a democracy. Well they're they're like fucking scam. Show continued even today where they were in nevada and rick grenell who used to be the fucking acting. Dna the director of national intelligence. Mind you this. Man was the ambassador to germany before. This and the germans were like you'll. This dude has the energy of like the viceroy of like a colonizing power. Like this dude is non ambassador. He's on some weird shit. Stephen miller shit right. Yeah he was. He was out here in on in nevada. Being like there's there's more fraud out here because that's part of their angle and shout out to jacob soboroff at msnbc walking with him and ask the most basic questions right. You're out here holding a press conference with match slap. Who don't forget was also part of the brooks brothers revolt Yeah he was basically out here making all these accusations and like journal says okay. Hold on sir. I have i have a question for you. Pay rick grenell. We're live on. Msnbc right now. Can you talk about the evidence. Your claiming thousands of illegitimate votes here in nevada essence. You should go in and ask the question of which is just a click. No in fact you also said there's no election observers democratic and republican election observers inside grenell former grenell acting and the fraud you haven't presented any evidence of presented no evidence of fraud craig. So he fucks off into a van what he says you should ask them. And he's referring to a case. This woman said that she went to go vote day of but then they said her mail in ballot had been returned. And she's like well that wasn't me and they're like okay so you're saying for someone filled out your shit for us like yeah okay. Would you like to make a statement then and we can start this. We can start a proper investigation. She's like nah not really and then when the secretary of state looked at the the signatures and things like that they matched and she was like she kinda sorta gave up the argument right there and very narrowly a lot of republicans have been using that example to you. See the guy. Joe gloria. Who's running the clark county Count over there. He i said there was nothing but then when someone followed up and mentioned her. He said that they had already investigated. So what is it and you know that it sounds like he didn't mention it because it sounded like somebody who's making a stink and then when they pressed it they're like oh nermine nerve pain so it's all just really rely on my wallet. Yeah i found it. And rick grenell shout to somebody who has no business working in any kind of office. Just one look at his instagram account. I just had to go in there. Because there's something about him he just he's the most basic man of all time like he's got his like i'm in the mediterranean with my ice cream And he's got this his whole. There's like another photo i met. Suzanne somers estate. He's like with a like a hot spring tub in a mountain. The weather's fantastic here. Quick break about this asshole when we come back. Let's imagine a world where no one ever cuts corners. Potato chip bags are filled to the top of car in front of you at the stop like notices when it turns green will a place like this exists where script pizzas are placed in the square boxes and wings come in jumbo sides.

Learn more and we're back and yeah there there's all sorts of interesting people coming out of the woodwork on the trump side of things. It's like a you know. Third act where they're bringing all the cameos back from the just wildest people we've also got his his pastor his spiritual adviser. Oh god but our enough the prayer groups. Yeah that is wild. She's speaking in tongues She's got one shoulder stylishly. Exposed but For christ yeah. It's paula white and for my trip is is pretty an incredible figure right. She believes in something called. I think prosperity christianity. Basically like if you're already rich. That's because god wants you to be rich. She's got a couple of churches that went bankrupt. She owed five hundred million dollars She's really perfect for trump. there's no one more fitting to be speaking in tongues for him. Grizz just attracting the drifters and when you look at like comparatively. I mean you know not to make light of like people situations but like you know when you compare her. Like capitalists tongue show whatever that was to like people like asylum seekers around the world like singing and praying together that trump is ousted or like villages in india were comma harris's families from like you know make like all dedicating energy to sending good vibrations and like i don't know in the vibe wars. I think i think biden might be within the vyborg too. But it's fucking it's really all unsettling that version of like prosperity gospel. The it there's a high stakes for an election because like god is determining like who who wins and loses like. That's what that's what happens in that version of of the world in that theology is like god is like you know you win this one and is a overseeing the recount. Were count. sorry. I shouldn't say jesus feeding and helping the poor and the lepers ill. It's like the mean girls of christianity like four l. That's actually not what he did. Is jesus actually went there and was actually. Just shooting jumpers with paper towels. That's what he was it like there. There were some calls to ban trump from twitter yesterday. That i feel like that should maybe be more of a thing that people are calling for. Because what like what's happening. Right now is is pretty scary. Right like the the cunanan. Call the the people who have been we've already had people who are trump supporters sending bombs to obama and hillary clinton and We've had people who are trump supporters driving to walmart and shooting Over a dozen people to death. We've had you know. Trump supporters are already activated. Yes already violent mob and exhaustible. It just feels like the only reason we're not making a bigger deal about this. And the danger that they pose that the president poses because of white supremacy like were boarding up error city buildings ahead of the election. Because we're like. Wow black lives matter. Protesters they're gonna come and like break into fucking tender greens. But where i would by the way right way too expensive. Yeah yeah yeah for how. How little piece of salmon you get. That's useful. I might as well just hit the seas myself but i. I don't know i just feel like this should may be as soon as somebody calls the election. We should just this motherfucker off i media platforms because there's need to incite violence. Yeah and we've seen social media platforms used to incite wild like massive nationwide violence and other countries when the person inciting them wasn't even the president or the president was just allowing it to happen. So like but the thing you understand is in the fine print of facebook ads. If you spend three billion dollars with us we'll give you at least four genocide starting misinformation towards or rights. And then we'll pull the plug after that we'll give you seven thousand radicalized dad's and yeah i haven't been on facebook so i'm very curious and i'm like maybe i should just create like a shadow account where i you know. I'm just like you know. Sally makes sally and sally loves all right. Wing stuff of just wanna see like What they're being fed because that is so what we have to look forward to. I mean jack you're right. I think that part of the reason. We don't admit i think from from even from an fbi level from law enforcement level from Just everyday people level of that like white supremacy and extremism is actually incredibly scary. That we're actually cared like that. We don't there is no plan to really deal with the extremists and like people should be afraid and nobody wants to admit that they've like let this is the cat out of the bag longtime ago. It's been out since obama. And p there's actually no real plan to rain back in it's also family secret of the country. Where yeah to let people know that the entire thing is white supremacy over here because also successful black people and like that helps sort of create the mirage that this place isn't as violently white. Supremacist as it actually is. But that's the thing. And i think every time those reports come out you would just look and be like i think this is the actually the biggest issue in this country and most people do say that but like the meat like a lot. There's a certain class of people who just cannot embrace that truth that simple fucking fact and it's difficult so it's treated like this like you know like i don't know who the father of that child is when everybody's like i. It's pretty clear you're not the father whatever. We'll pretend that it's not a big deal. And i think it also is like the reverse of those things they The tests they do where they like. Show people different faces and like white people inherently fear of brown face like before they like they automatically like preliminary associate a brown face with like a threat. Like they've done that test to argue as to why like police shouldn't be armed because they are irrationally racist like racist at a pre cognitive level. I think we see the opposite of that. In like the you know mitt media industrial complexes inability to see white supremacy as the threat that it actually is this. How could people you know you look at these newsrooms. The makeup graphically what are they gonna say We might have a problem in our own community you know. But they can't that's not that's the those are the write ups. You're seeing from publications. That are a little more sober. I'd or from coming from minority journalists. Were like there needs to be a reckoning internally and white america about what is going on here like his you instead of normalizing the richard spencer white not white supremacists who are still just nazis. And it's almost like people are treating you know Like a militia groups as if they're Like tacky like corny. Like oh i wet so like Timothy mcveigh you know early. Two thousands like no no no or or nine thousand nine hundred. It's still around. They're still here and they're still crazy. Stop trying to pick the one not see. That knows how to form a sentence and like is like the fucking captain of the debate team like. That's not that's not your job your job and that's the thing with media generally and you guys know this but i just wanna say someone who's worked. He works in media. Journalists are really bad at talking about trends and structural problems. They are really good about like. Hey look at this one black woman. Who's the head of the k. k. k. in idaho. They want the anomaly. They want the story in the headline so of course they're not going to talk about the avalanche of militias. They want like the one. Blm organi organization. That's like yes we are. We are armed. Like we are just like the white militia. So you're seeing a skewed. This is why the mainstream media not from the right wing but from from a progressive point of view from the left wing from a reality point of view. The media's always going to be skewed because a story is in a story that persists over decades. That's just a fact and so. How do you report on that day by day And it takes and you. You know it's hard not hard. It's a decision from that organization to do that. Yeah but i mean they. They did manage to spend a decade and a half after september eleventh reporting on any Extremist group that had ties to islam. Yes indeed all right one last thing i want to talk about is just how underpaid poll workers are. Because like. they're getting. They're getting shit for being slow. Which like for like if we had just let them when they got the votes in like the none of this would be happening. We know who the next president was Reminder most of these rules were set by republicans in these states shows these complaints. Yeah you fucking idiot. Set him up and knock them down. That's what they do prove that the government is ineffective by gouging it from the inside out and being like c. She corporations should run everything bread. Yeah yeah same with the same with the usps but it's also a task that has a lot of steps even and like is complex even when you don't have to people outside of your ballot collecting Station like banging on the doors and shouting at you to stop counting It's actually a pretty awful job. They have to check that. The voters registered a hasn't bowed already that their signature matches And then they have to make sure there are no tears. Blood or semen on the ballot. They don't mention semen but they they mentioned tears on blood Or any quote sticky stuff. So i'm assuming maybe that sticky icky how can you imagine. Louis dejoy is Finding a lot of self dejoy just trying to like thwart that just like he's in the back somewhere. Just you know knit is what. I'm trying to say all the ballots ballots. It's going to ban on the ballots. That's my producer drop tube and on. The ballots been ballot. It's good though. I just want to say that it's good like just like everything with the trump administration in this moment is that we're finally like understanding the value of certain systems and structures Instead of just kind of out of ignorance saying we don't care about them. You know like we all know what the attorney general does now and how important that role is you know we all know. There's a head of the usps now. They probably shouldn't be a donor of the. You know the same administration that they're serving and now we know about poll workers and election boards. And how they kind of are strapped for resources and needs support. Rather than just. Kind of like yeah. I don't know like i've been seeing this time like. I don't know what happens to my ballot. I guess fairies take it but it's like they're poll workers in their election boards and they do a lot of work arizona filleting offer despite like just very long hours they offer a daily stipend with minimum amount of less than one hundred dollars a day. Eleven states offer poll workers hourly minimum wage. So it's terrible. It paid nearly enough. Madani are like the node at which our democracy wrestling. But that's america you know like competitive deemphasize. You know wages for things that are so massively important to the country running you know the essential workers. It's like a again. It's like the same pattern. Give them as little as you can't like we would be fucked if these people stopped working and putting in hours and dedication that they do to their jobs and then even this poll workers the fucking people who were entrusting with this like so-called sanctity of our elections. It's still like yeah. I don't know man i guess well it's crazy. These people like we love it. These people are so dedicated to this this process. We can pay them fucking dog shit and they're still treat their job seriously. Fantastic man. yeah and then you think of all the money that gets spent during the course of an election just and they won't pay the workers who actually do the work of counting the votes that give us the end results Yeah and now in this election cycle like we mentioned like maricopa county workers in arizona had to be escorted to their cars by the police last night because there were you know cunanan protesters chanting and rallying for hours outside so shout out the poll workers.

What is Postmodern Sitcom?
"Sir Generation X. Those are those of US fortunate enough to be born between the mid sixties and the early eighties and then other generations influence our perceptions the lessons that Gen xers absorbed from their childhood was that you can't trust anybody it's all up to you what Gilligan's island and the Partridge family and Hogan's heroes we were the first generation was also handed the cable box like five channels is amazing was to see if there was a connection between TV viewership and realized perceptions and that's when a communication theory called cultivation theory came out of that connection ended up being me but he without parents around XS never really alone there was no internet there was no texting I were kind of caught between perceptions that sitcoms created for us you know kind of like painting that picture of the American dream but now as adults were realized hi there was a connection between past content and like current confusion so in the sixties came out a bunch of studies the explain why this was the way it was the least nurtured least parented generation in American history we were watching television and latchkey kids coming home to TV as our Babysitter we ended up with like a very unique relationship with the medium and the content there seeing that those ideas aren't our reality I mean we're the first generation in history where basically a majority of us won't be better off than our parents where often miss maybe both our parents were working or the eighty s were when divorce really became prevalent for whatever reason a lot of us were latchkey kids and we had I think the main entertainment for children was the television admit to being raised by television. It's not a healthy thing I twenty so much to consume that does that creates challenges and some intergenerational communication issues Jan Gen-x were Kinda societies middle child you know where the Jan Brady's of the world today because we're caught between boomers and millennials so we feel a little bit ignored program research at Gonzaga University so I'm GonNa talk a lot about cultivation theory asks another lying framework for all the podcasts because Gen-x was the first group of series also but I've been seeing a lot of Gen xers talk more about this lately on TV I actually caught a new episode of the real housewives of Orange County don't off and that's because we spent so much of our time growing up in front of the television the eighties were the first time an entire generation was kind of on our own for a bunch of different reasons understood or maybe dismissed in the workplace and that's where we also have a really hard time navigating communication styles of younger generations like millennials so I'm hoping to look at in somebody had to remember to take out the trash sign the report cards buy the milk so on that the as are babysitter and that was a really really big influence on us here I'll let a National Geographic Docu series called generation x. sum this up sum this up end eating ramen noodles and racing ourselves Wolf Pack Style and Malls Genetics wonders are we just excess baggage on our Parents Vision Quest Gen xer that TV viewing has affects bureau behaviors oh and but since okay so just money back up a little bit postmodern Sitcom this entire series it's a product of my masters judge and one of the new housewives this year her name is Bronwyn she's forty one years old and they spent a good chunk of one of the episodes where she talks to her mom about this very thing and about how growing up taking care of herself in the eighties has affected her now here just listen my mom wasn't around much when I was little I was four I'd take the bus home I want my house came with a little necklace around my neck and I let myself into the house by myself at four I didn't have the you know hear myself to to self reliance protect myself being her earlier this year I also conducted kind of an informal survey and on survey monkey will the typical you know stable two-parent house I didn't have out typical I learned he very young too eighty one thirty nine percent said that as children they watch TV five or more nights a week thirty three percent said that they watched three to four nights a week so that that means basically seventy two percent of Gen xer surveyed were regular sponges soaking up TV messaging if tm eighties was our babysitter and our teacher and yet it it does support the Gen xers did watch a lot of television growing up in fact out of one hundred self identify Gen xers born between nineteen sixty one and nineteen kind of significant social identity groups that an author named Brenda J. Allen talked about in her book different matters and those themes are age gender it come to understand that influence of TV on Gen xers and how it formed us and how the content produced unrealistic expectations. Sometimes maybe sitcoms so I'm looking at growing pains Gimme a break punky brewster the golden girls facts of life silver spoons and I watched all of these influenced my generation and then how other generations might better understand Gen xers and how Gen xers may better hand cultivation theory says that subordinate groups so younger folks are more influenced by media then gen-x was created by television and and I'm just hoping this facilitates them better interpersonal connections between different generations so in each episode of Post Modern Sitcom I haven't aligning to one of those six that has significantly impacted personalities viewpoints and interactions today the big brain on Brad so I create a postmodern unlimited viewpoints for us today and look at specifically why eighties TV was so meaningful to us and whether or not that content really did.

It's so important that your story be told especially now. You don't wanna be taken in the arrests on this. So the detached prices in the nine zero five are up. Nineteen point two percent to an average of one point one two percent only basically almost one point one three percent. That's pretty oss. So you guys with those properties out there you realize now that a lot of people are making the move outside of the city. They're looking for more space selling the condo hotel in the city home and moving out to the nine zero five so you can't take the risk of just having a A merely local exposure. You want something that's really really big and that's the one good thing about me. Is that when you're connected with me. What were wherever you are in the nine five. You are going to be first and foremost right on my podcast. First of all and you're going to be getting all the state of the art marketing.

I wanna make sure that when you talk to me you'll see how that works and how that translates and how that ends up becoming such a great soul story as was one of the many soul stories. I've helped people in the nine five with over the last twenty years so now let's go to the semi detached home so semi's were up thirty six percent so that's not bad. That's not too bad either. Nothing two four one. Six area semi's in the nine zero five up thirty two point seven percent in terms of sales price. Wise eight point seven percent is the is the four one six so up to one point one six and in the semi detached nine zero five those are also sixteen percent so those are up to eight hundred and sixteen thousand three sixty seven so those are some really really good numbers there and the last two are townhouses and condo apartment so count. The townhouses did pretty good. They were up twenty four percent in four one. Six up thirty three percent nine. Zero five prices are up seven point three percents and in the four one six to eight nineteen seventy five to and prices are up nine zero five area up. Fourteen point nine percent to seven twenty nine five five seven that's townhouses. The last category is condo apartments. So this is the only area. Condo apartments include lofts as well so condo. Apartments are down approximately point eight percent in terms of sales that have been done In terms of four one six in terms of sales in the nine five they are up twenty three point three percent and that's condo. Apartments and average prices are down three percent so they're actually from down three percent at six forty two eight nine zero five condos are actually up. Four point eight percents. So they're up to five thirty three nine eighty four. so there's lots of numbers here to review An obviously again. As i always said to all my clients when i'm reviewing these numbers with you guys Is want you to be on the inside. Track of everything. That's going on in terms of property sales and in terms of how they affect you directly because really the bottom line is they. They have to affect they. You have to know how they affect you specifically in your area in your type of property. Some of you are doing phenomenally. Well some of you in the nine five have no idea.

You know in in in just a little while. Nobody knows so if you want to take advantage of this right now. Let's let's let's get together. Let's talk and let's figure out a strategy that's going to work for you. I really think it's important. And if those of you with homes and detached homes and semi's and condos lofts in toronto are are looking to make that change. There's a specific order that you should be using to do this. Don't just go by the standard of finding something and then selling doesn't quite work that way anymore.

None of my clients this year suffered any Delays or or or or issues in terms of their closing so. I wanna make sure that you guys are in that same positions. Well thanks for tuning in as always.
A Little Thinking On Big Podcast Stats [S3E22]
"As a general rule, don't stress out over your podcast stats. Your podcast will probably get the audience it deserves, and when you start looking closely, your numbers start making a lot less sense. Hello. And welcome to another podcast quantifications with me Yvo Tara. Which podcast listening APP is responsible for most of your downloads none on a don't go check you should be able to answer. You should be able to answer this question easily like all of us can answer this question. because. With very few exceptions. The answer's always apple podcasts apple podcast reign supreme. It's the number one downloaded thing that we have. Want to examine that today, but I also want to say this one of the things that I lament the most about podcasting. Is Our lack of a common language around stats and performance so I will be returning to this the him. Periodically, periodically. But for now. A. Little thinking on some really big podcasts stats and that big podcast at once again is who's the biggest APP responsible for all of the downloads that we get, and with few exceptions, the answers apple never been shrinking over the years but it still apple podcast in fact, according to my numbers since I came back and started season three back in July, the sixth I believe it was. Apple podcast is responsible for my show, which is a little different than most other shows. Apple PODCASTS is responsible for thirty three point three percent exactly one third. A third of my audience is apple podcast now. Some people say, well at gas accounts like sixty percent and sometimes true. But let's not worry about it for. Malamute. Just give you my numbers and I'll show you what what sounds Wonky and weird afterwards. If I, also look at all episode download since July six, I see that my number to his overcast. Wow with twenty one percent and that kind of makes sense overcast as a power user tool and sends my show podcast pontificators is aimed at working podcasters of working podcasters appreciate the power tool that is overcast. So I'm not surprised that that number is roughly two to three times larger than the average member of people for overcast other podcasts. My third. spotify. To ten point three percent right about on par with what spotify. Is Overall. When you look at all the podcasts and yet all those numbers that begin around sixty five percent, which means thirty five percent of my listeners have other ways they listen look I i. sit in this out as a newsletter people like to read there's a link to just download the file directly. So I see a lot of activity from browsers. There are tons of other podcast listening, APPs lots of ways to get the show. So these numbers all make sense to me. Except they don't when they start drilling down. See when I start looking at individual episodes things change. Look very, very different. I got a bunch of numbers I wrote that I noticed this yesterday and it wouldn't leave me alone life. I didn't sleep very I kept thinking about this. So I thought well, WE'RE GONNA. Talk about it on the program and see. Where it goes. Because I have the ability with my hosting company, captivate Com and captivate DOT FM of which I am an advisory board member. Captivate will give me the number of downloads for an individual episode. So I can just look at the episodes an episode and see what man, most podcasts hosting companies do this or at least they should do this. So we can hone in on a single podcast episode ignored downloads everything else, and let's just look at that one episode. Well, I did that and I've got a sheet here in front of me to talk about this with and I went back and looked at my most might ten most recent episodes. So this goes from yesterday's episode all the way back to the twenty six July think. And what I see when I look at individual episodes. Is Not Apple podcast being on Tom. In fact in every case. It's overture of overture. It's overcast. Overcast last yesterday show when I checked this morning yesterday's episode almost forty percent of my downloads from yesterday's program came from overcast. Only, twenty, three percent. came. From Apple. And if I look back at the before the same. Almost thirty three percent overcast then apple the day before that. Different. Now, what I see over time as I see the numbers, the gap shifting to instead of from thirty seven percent to twenty, three percent, it goes down to. Thirty three percent to twenty, five percent, and then the next one goes down to thirty two percent to twenty six percents. So the gap continues to narrow less percentage of. Overcast usage actually wrote over my notes. That's why I said at that way. So the number shrinks over time but when we're looking at what's happening automatically or not automatically, but you know immediately. Immediately. My listens come from over cat overcast not. Apple podcasts and here's what's really weird. Remember when I said spot of my responsible for ten point three percent of all of my download since I came back from break on July the sixth. Looking at those ten episodes that I examined. spotify not even on the list. It's not even showing single digit. Downloads forget percentages somebody even in the single digit downloads from it. At, least not from the top five. So. That's really strange. Or is it I'm not sure exactly if it's strange not what I? What it does lead me to believe is that and at the risk of offending my friends, Steve, Ted Josh and others that work at. Apple. I wonder. If we are treating stats the same. For different. APPs is there something inherent about the way that the apple podcast APP accesses information as opposed to the way that overcast and the way the spotify accesses files for download that trip up our stats program? We have. A B, two point Oh stats. But once again, if you look a little closer at those stats. They leave a lot of room for interpretation and they probably. Shouldn't but they do. So I don't know what the real takeaway is here other than this is. Weirdness it's not like I'm focusing my attentions and creating custom content for one APP or the other. But it? Kinda tells me that this assumed everybody uses APP. A or B is probably not necessarily true. They may show up the most in our data, but they may not really represent. Reality. or at least anything that we can actually work on. Other than the idea that. If you've been sharing out links, the US what you think is the dominant APP most people use and when you look at your overall staff and you see That's the APP that is hitting your stats package most frequently. So let share links from that APP Maybe. You shouldn't do that. Maybe Not. This obviously is ready for a longer conversations, which is why I left the door open earlier and I went returned to this idea about thinking about podcasts, which I've done previously, and I will do again and again maybe you know someone in your podcasting group, you're podcasting cohorts, who is either stats Phillip or stats phobic that they would get a kick out of this please send them this episode and a personal note saying that you're listening to it and you think it's something for them. Listen personal recommendations. When you tell someone who is also a podcast about podcast, advocation really helps the show grow and the more or listeners more readers that come into the program makes me happier obviously and it gives me more people to talk with and have more crazy ideas coming out. So pretty please do that for me and please also buy me a coffee dot com slash Ebo Tara is where you can go to show your support for the program buying me while I lean off a virtual coffee. That's it for today. No episodes on Friday. Yeah. For the Four Day Week wink week work week work week man. That was a little Freudian. Yeah no episodes on Friday, but I shall be back on. Monday with yet another podcast quantifications. Cheers.

I hope this finds you wherever you are and whatever time of day i get a chance to listen to this. Thanks for spending some time with me. Today i have for you another. One of the podcast that we have moved from back in the archive re recorded cleaned up so does a better version that you can use today today. The conversation is about what happens when we create goals and how that can be a positive but also how can create an emotional drag and by simply naming a goal can actually slow us down. I've also included some tapping in here so you can tap along to it. If you are listening to this in the website down below the player i have included the written out scripts. You can go back and tap along to it again again and again if you haven't downloaded the tapping cuny app which is available for both android and apple devices in addition to having access to the audio. I also have a text session. That's t e x t where i have written out the tap alongs that we use in these podcasts so one of the benefits of moving this out of the archive is we also have the tapping script written out you have access to it enjoyed this conversation about how goals can be useful and how we can tap when resistance is created by them. One of the things that i have noticed i recently with my clients is a number of them have been bumping into situations where the goals that they're setting you and the expectations they have for themselves are actually causing them problems in the reason why they're causing them. Problems is once we have expectations then we have the opportunity to let ourselves down once we have expectations then we introduce reduce the ability to feel overwhelmed and when we're overwhelmed we take worse action. We spend more emotional energy. It makes it more difficult for us to be successful successful and to move forward because overwhelm is nothing more than expectations that feel like they can't be met that and the reason that this happens in most cases is because of the way we approach our goals and the way we approach our expectations expectations now. If you have been a listener to any of my stuff for any period of time you know i am a huge fan of setting goals. You know i know that i love having expectation of what is possible because when we have something that we're shooting for it helps us to create a plan and it it gives us the ability to measure how close we are getting to where we want to go to. I have an entire membership site through center that is built around around this idea of having clear goals and then tapping daily to help us to move toward those goals to clear out her issues that are stopping us from moving forward so so the problem isn't the goal and the problem isn't the expectation of what i think is possible for me. The problem comes when we we start to look at these goals in our sense of success as an all or nothing proposition you know i need to lose twenty five pounds announce and if i haven't lost twenty five pounds therefore i failed or war. My business needs to grow by thirty five percent and if my business hasn't grown. I'm by thirty five percent than i failed in. It's good to have these goals in. It's good to keep ourselves accountable because there is a natural tendency to go. I'll we'll get there and i'm making progress and that's good but if we make those goals and those expectations this all or nothing proposition asian anything short of that is a failing in so if i have over the course of six weeks because of exercise and diet you you know i've been able to lose twelve of those twenty five pounds. If it's an all or nothing proposition i failed because i haven't lost twenty five pounds. Even though i've matter made better choices exercising regularly i have more energy. I've lost weight. I've lost fat. I gained muscle. I'm on this positive trajectory victory but since i haven't reached my quote unquote goal i failed and because a fail there becomes an emotional baggage that goes along with that let in almost every single goal that we have along the way there are markers and there are degrees of success even for something like getting a degree you know they're sixty classes along the way and if i don't have the degree i haven't failed assuming i'm passing the classes in the order that i want to be passing them and so it's not something that we set up intentionally. It's not something where i think think in these digital terms being all or nothing but emotionally. It's really easy to fall into that place and i wanted to just tap a little a bit for that today. Only because the number of clients i've talked to in the last three weeks where this is something that has been an unspoken issue and the instantly tapped happed on it. It created a lot of space so what i want you to do. Is i want you to think about something that you were working toward a goal of some sort that you feel dissatisfied ride the you haven't reached or you feel overwhelmed because there's so much work associated with that and so what i want you to do is just tap on the side in your hand. Take a nice big deep breath for me. I just want you to tune in specifically to the feeling of overwhelm or disappointment the sense of failure or the sense of getting there fast enough around that goal and what i want you to do is i just want you to start at the tippy top of your head head and just moved from tapping pointed tapping point in the order that makes sense to you using the tapping points that makes sense to you just repeat after me. There is a part part of me that wants me to be successful that once so much better for me mm-hmm that wants me to move forward that wants to achieve my goals roles and i am so happy here that there is a part of me you that wants to be successful that once better that knows i am capable of more i can appreciate where i am and i can appreciate the blessings of my life and still recognize the fact that moore is possible bowl that growth is possible that progress is possible and there are times in which i look at my goals and i feel disappointed. I feel sad. I feel overwhelmed and i feel angry agree because i haven't reached those goals. I know how much better better my life will be when i achieved this but i'm not there and that is disappointing but i give myself permission to recognize the fact success is not an all or nothing proposition. It doesn't come down to simply success or simply failure as i take steps as i worked towards my goal i am positioning myself to achieve what i want and there is success along the way. I am already getting better. I am already making progress in when i don't take the time to acknowledge and appreciate that progress. Yes i do myself a disservice. I ended up demotivating myself. I make it harder for me to keep taking action and so i give myself permission to recognize the fact i am making progress. I am having success and it is making a difference. Success is not an all or nothing proposition as i move forward and as i get closer success comes with me. Success grows as those degrees of success increased yeah so does my enjoyment so does my enrichment so does the quality of my life. I give myself permission to keep striving for better to work towards my well-crafted goals into appreciate the progress. I'm making in the moment and do appreciate how that progress is helping me to have a better life right now. Big breath for me. Hopefully you're in a circumstance right. Now feels a little easier and it feels a little gentler with yourself. It's so important horton to have goals but it's also important to recognize the fact that they're not all or nothing and we're not incomplete unless we achieve those goals progress is a process and it adds to us along the way so i hope you find that tap along useful the hope you if there's still something hanging around there just go back re tap along to it.

148|Cognitive Science for Data Visualization with Lace Padilla
"I think with some guidance on Sunday principles of how the mind functions anyone can really integrate some cognitive science into the visualizations that they're making Interesting and it's traditionally a lot of data visualization researchers focused on low level perception like how well can be estimated area sizes or how good cognitive science and and what we could learn from it as useful for visualization sure so cognitive sciences the study of the mind and there is a mind involved with data visualization there's always user hopeful ideally yes some of the types of applications I've looked at our natural disaster forecasting like hurricanes and also uncertainty cognition I have an MFA design and I- fuse cognitive science with a little bit of art so what I'm interested in slash leader stories that's right and we always happy about any contributions if you can't afford any monetary nations just send us a nice tweet or in your current position sure I'm a cognitive scientist at the University of California said and I have a background in art it's how the brain processes visual information and the way I like to do that is to look at data visualization how do data visualizations before we start just a quick note our podcast these listener supported so there's No ads if you enjoy the show please consider supporting us with recurring pain change how we think or feel or act in the world how can we make data visualizations better what are some techniques out there that currently need to be tested and more broadly how can we help people make high impact decisions with data visualizations is there training that we need to do is there ways to improve them and of course we also talk about hurricanes mental models but in all to learn what all this is about you'll have to listen to the full episode I'm afraid Yes for example making decisions about say procedure you might undergo something like that that's my broad broad background Super Minson Peyton dot com slash data stories or if you prefer to send a one time donation that's also an option just gone paypal dot me what we study in cognitive science is how people go about utilizing that type of information to help them with whatever it is they're doing welcome hi thank you for having me so can you briefly introduce yourself tell us a little bit about what is your background your interest the show and this time around we have lace Padilla on the show and we discussed with her about the relationship of cognitive science and data visualization and also look nice review that's always great to anyways let's get started with the show as we said the topic today is cognitive signs data visualization and the way that cognitive science can help visualization researchers is a goose researchers a understanding of some any time that you create a data visualization our goal is to provide to someone to help them due to some type of task or with some type of job so cognitive science can do for a profession we also talk about why besides Asia research focus so much on low level perception and the role of decision making in data visualization the underlying processes that are work which could help you develop new visualizations it can help you iterating more quickly through your design process taking some usability questions in visualization and pulling some science from different fields to give you a foundation how people's attention is attracted to different elements of official information and we have a good sense of how people learn information how they I've been doing this for roughly a hundred years and we have a pretty good sense of how perception works I works and have a good sense of how those are all really hard big questions that come science has been studying four hundred years really so it's a nice way of got psychology hasn't folded historically as it started with low level perception just trying to identify what's going on with the eye with our senses with those steps individually contribute to help people use visualizations seem like a daunting task to visuals when you don't have to re study was topics that have been labored over for a long time that's really the benefit of of cognitive sciences you imagine decision-making process it is a very Effective scientific approach to start with step one both of Germany and on this podcast we talk about data resides -ation analysis and more generally the role data plays in our lives and usually we do that together with a guest we invited Asian researchers to figure all of that out but I think with some guidance on some of the principles of how the mind functions any way or should we make these visualizations and and I think that my approach does can help with testing as well to make sure that what you think people are doing with your visualizations is actually what they're doing and how they're interpreting it colors to encode certain types of information and the whole cognitive science angry I think is so interesting invaluable so can you tell us a bit information for long term memory and on and these are all topics I mentioned briefly but there's thousands of researchers who've studied those in depth and all and I started doing that because I think it's more interesting I wanna know what people do I want to help people make better decisions reasoning how can we figure out now that we know that there's an air where that air occurred in the process sort of like reverse engineering the whole the whole process of it take time to figure them out so I think what has happened is there's just not a lot of cognitive scientists in working the this such a big gap between designers artists but then when you go to the science of it it's always this very very Kazeem area right Oh yeah yeah because if you have a longer process uncertainty can occur throughout the entire they are that cognitive scientists have been studying and we we are not really aware of that and that that's one reason why I really like so when we start applying what we learned cognitive science in psychology to new fields it's very reasonable reasonable place to start with the beginning of the process this today and so I start with decisions in work backwards but that was a a choice that I think other researchers may make different choices it's so hard to count insides or to to say this decision was twice as big as the other one told laboratory experiments you're you get so far away from the real types of decisions that people make it's not entirely informative but yes and I'm GonNa and I'm an independent design of data visualizations in fact ever as a self employed truth beauty operator out of my office here in the countryside and level and I don't WanNa say that it's not important relevant is is extremely useful but I always I always felt that there is something missing there if you're looking at a low level phenomenon near looking at the neuronal level it's a little easier to identify what's making changes and we have to do experiments where we we're not up making big claims where we've solved the problem of uncertainty visualization what we do is many experiments where we simply provide evidence that this theory might on visualization and doing the level research if there were I think it would advance a little bit more quickly I think what happens is the more interesting the way people are understanding this information and death it's GonNa take you know many many experiments to build up lots of evidence incision making yeah I think what is interesting now that you're mentioning you've been mentioning decision making a few times in that's one of the things that he controlled laboratory experiments to try to reduce some of that noise where possible and it's and it's not always possible it sometimes when you do a little backwards so I started the end with how we make decisions and then kind of backtrack and say if this is what people actually do that is why you see the studies that do we have like three hundred participants in they do the exact same task hundred times where all we do is is change this decision is produced by officials in this decision as produced by another visualization so the key to my research is that I do king right but at the work you do in the work you do decision making seems to be as you just mentioned the main thing right so I'm the type of work that you are doing because to me looks like it's one out on a somewhat different level and over the years I always had these as I said this nagging feeling the if you can comment a little bit more on what is decision making why is it so relevant for virtualization maybe even why we decision making different from things like memory and attention and perception is that you can have one can really integrate some cognitive science into the visualizations that they're making I think my sense is that related to what Mark was saying is that I always had this nagging everyone welcome to your new episode of Data Stories My name is Brittany and I am a professor at Nyu in New York City where I teach and do research data visualization feeling that we have we for many years we've been focusing on on low level perception but there is a whole world out with this information how does that inform our theory about how they got here so if they had some air in there process than propagate through the system so few starting at the very end another soul much variability that might have happened it's hard to say strategies that we use and biases which are kind of ways in which were inclined to make ineffective decisions that can a relatively perfect memory maybe you remember the information individualization exactly and maybe you understood it exactly my favorite workout of decision making behavioral economics demonstrates that we often take strategies which are totally understandable I think one part of the challenge is it becomes intensity more quality attempt the type of research do probably making process we're trying to eliminate some of that ended that scare researchers away as well because pretension in all of those things to even figure out what happens at the decision making stab at things can go haywire and some we don't we don't seem to have focused that much on this length so far which looks a really relevant to me okay so what makes take all of that good information produce an ineffective decision so that hasn't been studied as much in visualization because it's a very common Asian or visualization research more specifically for some reason we don't really framing under the we look at it under the Lens of decision decision every time we're interacting with new information just takes too much time if every time you had to decide what shoes to put on in the morning you had to do a I really like about your approach and eat to me looks like surprisingly New Angle for visualization because I don't know why when we talk about this it is true and frankly it's not a fault of anyone that's kind of the natural progression of science so the way automating the process that we actually need to compute and that's where decision making comes in and it's it's neak because you you have to have some exposure to some of the work that's done in behavioral economics which is absolutely fast to feel like we have right simply because you know it's a fuzzy process all the way at the end of of all those different processes in Canadian Encourage everyone to take a look at some of that Lee search it so so interesting to me that you know the way that information is framed can and maybe it was visualized perfectly but when you get to that final step there's all these heuristic six which are rules of thumb instead the balloon we move to step two and so on the issue is that it's all those steps are not easy to takes but they're based on a rational process in the rational processes that we can't compute every new from other contexts to interpret new information and when we do that we can come to ineffective conclusions that might seem irrational sation because they're some new elements associated with visualization that have been studied tradition we make decisions and it's unclear what we've discovered in behavioral economics extends to the visual system. I what I argue is that where we show people a visualization therre misunderstanding and we figure out exactly what the biases and then we give them lots and lots of training too it cost benefit analysis in your head that would take too long break so we automate some of those processes effectively the problem happens when we the thing to do is to create fancy nations rather than you know study though though why do people understand information into one teeny tiny part of the visualization and that we test what happens Mitchell for that reason it's it can be really fuzzy at the end of the decision way but they still make decisions with the bias and you know we found that other researchers found it as well lex step in and of itself and in visualization you really have to account for all of the downstream processes like memory and you know next month and when you add visualization in there it is unclear what happens visual information is is has a profound influence on how silence what we think about it or the way that information presented can influence how we how we make decisions with it so it's it's a unique step and it's very important for visual the biases that we find probably going to be more profound harder to overcome visual system has stronghold on we think about information and I've found this in my research in a variety of other researchers have found this as well to give you a concrete example I've done work data that if you are then taught a little bit about decision making you can come to effective choices about how to visualize the Holte to overcome visualization via sees is stronger so it is I think that unexplored area that that we really need to enough faith individualization designers and how deeply they think about these processes that I believe that if you know your user and you know the data and by simply giving people rules or strategies that's really undercutting the expertise of visualizations finally in decision making decision making cognitive science in behavioral economics is generally done with risks like sort of betting scenarios with Do you have any like practical hints in terms of how you can actually design a data presentation so that it's more suited for for good ooh and my my failing was it has a lot to do with not just how you so things but especially starting from what you show it all is Neko you said it's not discussed much but in a business context for corporate clients these that better action this question one caution I would say twos that when you're thinking about decision making its is a rare case where you know what type of decision you want someone sitter and like your point now not very many people have looked at it from a practical view super interested in the topic because researchers out there who are trying to make guidelines and rules of thumb in those sorts of things I take a different approach which is I because it's a personal choice and I would imagine in a business setting it's similar where you know I mean I don't want to empower people to walk in so it's it is a little tricky when you're reverse engineering because sometimes you WANNA start with saying here's what we want people to and the data that they're using that we should really be leveraging that rather than automating huckstep again would mean to really I asked the question what types of physicians do you need to make and only then think about what data do you need them and then think about how to present the data's seiners and I think that the power what visualization designers really to is they have such an intricate knowledge of of who they're communicating too sure yeah so that's why you should not from the data availability or cut things which happens often and I mean again their best possible decision to have the information we present them to be clear on effective to help them reason to their best best of their ability Annan show a visualization that has everyone taking sound finger yeah exactly I don't I don't think that that's Michael you too know what the bias is had overcome it and then at the end of the experiment they can say they can tell us what the Bible says they should they tell us that they shouldn't make their decisions the decision making or for being actionable in some way right so this is a question I get quite a bit and I do know that there's I think so I do a lot of visualization of hurricane forecasting and I don't want everyone to evacuate and I don't want everyone to stay but what do want is people to make Asian better char so one of the things that we've found many reach researchers find as well is that when the would probably also mean like applying your reverse froth right yeah yeah so that's that is why I really liked the reverse process yes Lee's I'm wondering so I think you know briefly mention the fact that you're working with whether data few experiments on whether data and also I think there are also a really good example of the Kennel visualizations that can be used for decision making right so the well and it is hard to overcome heuristic decision making research but what we found is the the magnitude of the Shaw and a lot of visualizations that is not actionable is considered like pointless and certain very very applied context have complex especially probabilistic data that does help some people to have that information visualized 'cause we haven't citing whether you should evacuate evacuate an area for an Eric Amy's is a major decision that people have to make so I'm wondering I do and I think you need to take one step back from that and say here are the important relationships that we need them to understand can describe would you like to describe a little bit in more in detail what kind of decisions have been there in the how solid session may actually make this I know the question of well you're showing me all this things but what can do with this and what's the type of decision can make now supercrew temporal order of things is or what the importance Ordos things is like what the whole food chain is like maybe who knows yeah I definitely agree as you know evolved in any way to understand probabilities in there's a big body of research that demonstrates how poor we at I think that again talking about biases that sort of more maybe also cognitive models you know then that can sort of create all these ideas how what also the it's the classic this is how all the pipelines are presented right data than it's encoded they showed a and then there's an inside or decision and we are at reasoning with probabilistic information so that's a perfect candidate for trying to US officials ations when there's data that are the too complex for the average person to figure out can visualize data help them with that process in somewhere so that's step one we're trying to visualize that information listening to their stories so we we really wanted to find the kind of baseline evaluation that anyone could do and they couldn't do it that would give us some indication of work is extremely error-prone so what we try to do is to try to identify ways that are less effort full certainty where there's not as much translation in the context of Hurricane forecasts what we've started with was the cone of uncertainty which is all the recent confusion about hurricane forecasts and the issue is that uncertainty data visualized there's and the the issue is that anytime visualize uncertain information you're making it concrete when we visualize something we how they're interpreting different visualizations so that was that was the task then we compare the cone uncertainty to four other visualization techniques and that's an interesting question because it avoids people having to do a probabilistic judgment which people are very bad at you know I would never s we thought okay we'll we'll compare this currently technique to some updated versions based on modern visualization research in just see which one comes out on top our users to take a concrete thing in their mind translate into something abstract not process of making them do that type there was a lot of different tasks that people can do but we essentially show them a location on the map and say can you estimate the damage that would incur to this particular location currently used by the National Hurricane Center and what it is is a model that predicts the path of the storm and the cone edges decide what's what's better right so in this context what we're doing is we developed a task where we have people estimate damage wchs am including a new one created by collaborators which we calling on somboon display probably here called Spaghetti plot oh good solutions at this point for how to do that we've done numerous studies looking at that other researchers as well I'm actually writing a book chapter right now on that very topic that process what's an easier transformation that people have to do in their minds are there some visualizations that naturally communicate the voted in pixels on a page on screen but uncertainties abstract so we inherently have to require the cone represent a sixty six percent confidence envelope around their mean predicted path of the storm and when we were first studied I mean if you know people make different damage ratings when they look at these official stations and part of the question is you know maybe they don't maybe the ashes what's the probability that the storm would hit Louisiana rose king yeah yes so it's kind of tricky the way you have to be very among other things we cooked on estimates something numerically and you know sometimes when you do that all you're really testing is their experience with statistics ristic's or rules of thumb it's reasonable that people are coming to that conclusion because we are showing them a map and they'd learned rules of thumb for Matt Spaghetti mixed up together but that's where we started you know quite a few years ago was that was another technique available so we went about they're the main path of different predictive models so you have to take a look to see there's a legend that indicates which does Asian doesn't matter and so that would be pretty good to know what actually influences people's decisions and you know so we can get a sense of what is important what is it what we found out is that people come to a lot of misconceptions about the cone of uncertainty people think that represents the size yeah and it's generally derogatorily called Spaghetti clench because when they're made poorly they can look like a mess of of lines kind of all the edge of it are the sort of the furthest extent of it is bigger than where it is start and if you know if you remember back to me talking about obscures sticks for maps and it suggests that size on a map can be equated to physical size in the real world you learn in school right get the plot is actually every single line represents one potential path right well to the way that we so there's take the storm growing over time it doesn't represent any information about size but they physically see the growing the cone essentially this this is what you see with the laws stop you for a moment when you say what comes out on top what do you mean what is how do you from ones so the ones that you see on the news for Hurricane Doreen for example not all when each of those lines are marked model in our associated with each one of his lines the ones that we tested what we wanted to do is to take multiple that is the thing yeah yeah so I mean that's a case where some of the decision making research is in are not how we intended people to interpret it but that's not to say it's not entirely reasonable to to come to those conclusions in the one that you called the yeah but so what you just said was the exact miscommunication that people come to if they're not told how these are made and we have been to other studies and then if you take that line away our scoot over you think your significant less significantly less danger so there's this on the line off the line awesome we're showing them this column and it has a size element to it and in order to interpret it correctly they would have to not imagine it as size but remained if we just showed ten instead delay ten percent chance and that's just an arbitrary choice of how many paths to show and all the sudden you can really album because if you are shown three paths and one of them hits your town you think oh there's a thirty three percent chance to storm's GonNa hit my town wound are in the danger zone an areas outside a relatively safe which again is reasonable these are Air Caesar I've been onto something abstract like uncertain team right so that is the size of the possibility space but that's not something knowing this where people believe every line in an ensemble no matter what ensemble is a predicted path which can be it doesn't actually represent a predicted path it's sampling from the probability space of Armada make sense yes it does get the APPS so you're touching on one of the large problems that I see which is that especially with weather but for me some of the results that we've found what other things that we found was that people tend to believe the areas inside the cone the same model we use to generate the cone of uncertainty and each of the lines in the spaghetti plot or just one run of that model so each of the lines so you know in a perfect world I see us being able to get some information about user and make customize visualizations based on their task information news Internet they have almost no access to information what they do have is they have a hurricane flag a flag that has raised fact that is actually coming out in a couple of days in the paper that we've we've recently published I see what's interesting too is now now think about the silence the type of risks that people think that they're under a note that if you have some amount of lines and one of them hits your home strategic and hi test questions and we have to make it concrete basically in a sense of pecan actually yeah yeah and with interactive tools. It's much easier to provide actually Taylor visuals I think maybe we're just so as you say focus on this idea that there should be one areas and are not in the US For example I did work with feeding where tried to help them the Haitian also in many other to Mainz oftentimes one visualization is created for every type of decision on every type of user so the same hurricane visualizations do some type of interactive tool what we found is that on the areas on that western coast of Haiti they don't have phones. TV's radio evacuate or not you wouldn't have to show the full map but you could just provide people tool where they can look up their hometown and you get the probability right can explain more about those are but essentially a mental model is the way that you internally hurricanes approaching and it is really hard to get someone to drive out on a motorcycle race that flag so these are the people that are have most impact from hurricanes you know we're we can't expect them to use an interactive tool we have to optimize his flag groups of people that don't have access to them so we just make sure that we're trying to cover this multiple different angles and don't only focus on some events technological solution but I think what you're saying that even in those situations there is space for specific designs that may were represent information so what we tried to do in Haiti for example is to identify what types of mental models that they had for hurricanes and here's what really thinks should be done is that we take all approaches yes we make interactive tools but also we do not forget about of access to So I think again I don't think it's a simple solution for different categories of storms and you know what the difference between a category two and three hurricanes if we start talking about interactive tools there's going to be a big technology gap the reality is that the people who need this information the most generally came flag that is raised if anything tropical storm is approaching so that's one way we tried to optimize what they are working with but Kabuga tropical storm is approaching so one of the recommendations that we made is to get rid of this five flags system and have a single her and what we found is because their their infrastructure so decimated they don't need to know the difference between four five they need to know and provide them support for for their particular model and what that meant is their current flag system had five different colored flags mint working with the Red Cross tried to help the Haitian government improve their early warning systems and basically we identified this area on the Western into that but we've we've developed some cognitive models that lay those down in sort of a framework so futures wanted to study one component of it chance is to formalize some of these very complex processes so in terms of mental models like you're saying there's so much that goes ways to formalize these complex problems and to control all other variables and just test one small have lots of different attitudes and these are really really big effect on the way the actually consume this information right so again mental models and we could record the whole new episode just a couple of episodes on mental models but I just want to say that's another area where salinisation is if people are just this blank slate right looking resides Asian and they're all interpreted the same way it's either bad or good right host a payday that is decimated by storms so we thought okay we'll we'll go and figure out what information they have will try to optimize that in maybe decision again people want to make already picking up on your training and I think it's all about individual decisions if translating information in your mind different groups of people have different ability to do that and ensuring that you're not requiring Undo uh-huh how they're using this information and how to help them given their particular circumstance so much I think now you just mentioned a complex place so we'll have to close up sooner but from in person might steady cognitive models but maybe someone studies how cognitive models ferry across different people may provide education or different different things or exactly language background risk level that they're interested also accessibility how is uncertain official station because it is an interesting scenario where concern tire career studying individual differences for example which is the the cognitive science term for how people are different so one mental effort is a whole area of expiration cognitive science but you know that we just need more people doing this type of work it's other areas of exploration but I think beyond that there's a couple big unexplored component of a frankly it is complex and usually what happens is one researcher now of course you don't neither do the people of Haiti so they're provided with information that they don't know how to use at a relatively meaningless to them title to to catch all potential use cases maybe that's that's a really the floor run will the the other issue that that I like to point out is that uh-huh which is so exciting so I think you're gonna see some really impressive stuff come out of uncertainty visualization in the in the coming future that is going to open up right in in besides ation solid session research does so much more to do because we have these naive I think we have these nice way of you could again it's it is very complex but that's the business that cognitive science is what about for the last hundred years or more is trying to find I don't WanNa put you on the spot there was a huge topic right but what I will say is that the Nice thing that we've done in cognitive science relation making sure we're testing with in protesting an thinking about things like conflict of interest so for again that's not a perfect solution and there's lots of design constraints but it was based on service thinking about some of the cognitive science of issues to think about too in terms of individual differences some of the work that I was talking about that you have to do in your mind sort of trade and I don't know if I have a good solution for that other than it does help to at least collaborate with cognitive scientists that it doesn't have it is such a fascinating problem and the people that are doing uncertainty work are I think really thinking deeply about all these problems exactly exactly so I think that that's something that visualization research is really going to have to to deal with in some way all of these topics come to a head because you have complex data you have a complex decision and you have all sorts of different a bit to do with a valuation so we've developed such a wealth of ideas about visualization and there's a either effective or not effective but actually people are very different in the approach providence in very different ways a lot of background knowledge that no growing amounts of evaluation that are happening but I think there is definitely some work to be done terms of experimental controls in it was I was teamed up as a cognitive scientist with other visualization researchers and uncle was to test the visualizations that they developed a perspective what's the way forward what are the things
Why do people leave the hospital against the advice of their doctor?
"Why would somebody choose to leave the hospital when the doctor recommended they stay this is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion each day in hospitals across America, adults of sound mind. Sign out of the hospital against their doctors. Strong advice in medicine, we call this process, leaving A M A against medical advice. The reasons people leave very they can be worried. There's no one at home to feed or walk their dog. Perhaps they can't afford the co payments that will be forced upon them or more often. They just don't like or agree with their doctor in this. Latter category are doctors that ignore patients or fail to communicate with them. There are also doctors who are biased or racist. And doctors who think that they know more than the patients, while certainly many doctors, no more facts in science than their patients at the end of the day. The patient is the boss and. They certainly are experts on themselves their values their preferences and their finances. We know a bit about those most likely to sign out AMA, they are more likely to be from lower socioeconomic groups to have other psychiatric disorders and to have substance abuse problems. But despite all those categories most just don't agree with their doctors. A study published in the mayo clinic proceedings looked at people with one illness heart failure, these people often spend large amounts of time in the hospital as doctors adjust and readjust their medications one out of every nine deaths in the US are result of heart failure, and it is the leading cause of hospitalization in America. So researchers wanted to know what happened to those people who signed out AMA did they do more poorly will one marker of success? Yes is thirty day hospital readmission rates. In other words, in the first thirty days to people who leave the hospital early get sicker at home and return to the hospital in a poor state. So they compared to groups of very similar, but not identical people with heart failure same sex same age same serious of disease, and the like, well, it turns out that people who signed out AMA against medical advice were admitted to the hospital slightly more often than those who stayed in the hospital until their doctors discharged them. But not hugely different. Thirty three percent of those who signed out AMA were readmitted in the first thirty days compared to twenty one percent who waited until the doctors finally sent them home. Interestingly when those who signed out AMA were readmitted, they often went to a different hospital, not the one they signed out of well readmit. In thirty days suggests a failure all around. Nobody wants to be in the hospital and those with heart failure need home care and primary support to keep them living at home, but we also need to work hard to educate doctors on ways to accommodate people's real needs to help them feed the dog if you will medicine is a team sport. And the patient is after all the team owner. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion this podcast was made by public radio station.
