So sherry boost does was the head of the triple. That's the the group in charge of winning seats in the house and her genius idea was mercilessly attacked progressives any company or organization that works with any challenger to an incumbent democrat except by the way nancy pelosi who worked with a primary challenger against incumbent democrat but who cares. Corporate democrats will just cheat and there will be no consequences. Well sure bruce was. How many of those elections did you win almost none. You got your way you got massively conservative. Democrats are running and all those elections and you lost all of them so we wanna know which election has not been called sherry boost his own election. She hasn't won reelection yet. Good doesn't and you know what their solution is going to be the share. Your she was like the third most right wing democrat. What if we went with the second most right wing democrat to run are failing operation. So because as we've said a thousand times on the young turks they're not they don't have the same objective us we look at it as well. Why don't we want pick up more democratic seats so we can get legislation passed that we all agree on. There's really no difference if these are the democrats that are in office. There really is no difference. That's not their objective at all. Their objective is how can i make my donors happy so i can keep my power and they think the only way to keep their powers money money money money money money money. Money money And so they. They have discriminating against progressives. And it's a failing losing strategy and this is pretty much the only place you'll see it everyone else. The mainstream media will still call juicy. They'll forget amnesia. They'll forget all about this. They'll call nancy pelosi massar legislator and they'll think the only thing that's a legitimate challenge. The nancy pelosi is from the right wing. That makes no logical sense. But they don't have to make sense 'cause they're doing propaganda. They're not doing the news so you know what should happen. A real serious chancellor. Nancy pelosi from the left I don't know why we wouldn't challenge from the left. And by the way i got to tell you the progressives in congress.

"Turkey's president. Erdogan has urged Turks boycott French goods and said Monsieur macron needed a mental health check. So, let's talk a little bit about air one because while he's engaged in helping us John carry out ethnic cleansing in nagorno-karabakh at the same time his feelings are very hurt about the way he was depicted in Charlie Hebdo. and. So let me give you the details on that. The cartoon depicts Turkey's president lifting the dress of a veiled woman state media say Turkish. Prosecutors have launched an official investigation into the satirical magazine. No like these are strong men, right. These are these are authoritarian strongmen Air John is exactly that. And he's crying about how he's depicted in cartoon. If, everyone had to deal with like what we deal with on a daily basis in terms of like the constant feedback, the threats the. You know in my case, incredibly degrading stuff that people put out there about me he would be. Laying in a fetal position in a corner somewhere like. What's up tough guy. I mean there are tensions flaring right now between France and Turkey over cartoons. I get the people are offended by it. But I just the world is offensive. What what what else can we do like we can't protect everybody from hurt feelings like it's Insane. This is insane. Via. I don't even care that they're offended I'll get to that in a second. Let me do this one by one, but I want to be clear about all of this. Okay. So first of all Turkey was upset with mccrone earlier and particularly about that cartoon, which is as ridiculous as ANA. Says but after this latest killing a Turkey sent a message as it a lot of Muslim countries saying that they stand with the victims and obviously condemn the horrific terrorist act. So and I don't like that Muslims have to all Muslims one and a half billion Muslims have to apologize for every attack by some radical Muslim fundamentalists idiot. If that was same standards apply to white people. You'll have to apologize for every white supremacists domestic terrorist attack in America, which is. Now in the dozens and a far greater percentage of white people in America than there are Muslim terrorists to the one and a half billion Muslims in the world. So I don't see anyone calling for an apology from all white people because that makes no sense I also don't see any reasons why any Muslim in the world should apologize for terrorists that have absolutely nothing to do with them so. On I'm just going to say it real quick nagorno-karabakh. It's also should be pointed out that Armenia did not listen. To a UN resolution saying that that is not their land. So that's the two sides of. I mean look Jank you and I can talk about this story more in depth but a UN resolution by countries that don't even recognize the Armenian genocide.

Erdogan calls on Turks to boycott French products
"Talks president recipe type Erdogan has called for a boycott on French goods as tensions between the two countries rise after President Emmanuel macron called for a French Islam. This follows the beheading of teacher in France after he showed his class caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published by the Satirical magazine. Charlie. Ever. Let's cross to Istanbul to join the journalist I login Yuck. Leeann also on the line is Philip Malia professor of French and European politics at University College London. Island let's start with you. Why is Turkey so upset? Well the magazine this week published a cover that depicts a caricature of president are due on and suggesting that he's a bit hypocritical about his religious beliefs. He's drinking a can of beer and he's lifting. The skirt of an Islamic garb. So that is Let us set off a firestorm among our close circle They're accusing them accusing the magazine of insulting and have actually sued the magazine for libel. It is a crime in Turkey publishable a punishable by up to four years in prison to insult the president. So that has been the latest twist. In this in the spat, but they've also putting a ban on French goods. That's correct that stems from President Macron's a recent pledges to. Ensure. That Islam does not affect the French way of life and French values describe that as a relaunch of the Crusades an attempt to Spread like cancer the Islamic phobia that already exists in Europe according to Don So there, but the dispute doesn't just start there between Turkey and France on they are at odds over a number of issues including the war in Libya and including the search for hydrocarbons in the eastern Mediterranean as well as the conflict in Nagorno-karabakh. Absolutely, and we'll come back to those in a moment. I just want to bring Felipe here to talk about what my chronic said. I mean he's saying that he's been misquoted. Yes I think that that's what he says and to to be fair in this Ongoing Saga Domestic Saga in France that is around the shaggy bill cartoons the latest of course, the latest terrorist attacked a couple of weeks ago. This teacher who was beheaded in France by terrorists the the trial shall you do are all taking place as we speak, but there's a lot of things going on and to be fair my call has always been has has never been the hotline in this. In this debate about the cartoons is a bit more of a solo rather than. So in a sense, it's been unsound aim to be to be branded suddenly the most Islamophobic person in fraud I don't think used to be fair but the issues for sure it's been misquoted in a sense i. think he said, yes that they were issues with Islam. which probably was a rather undiplomatic way of putting things to wealth stage. I think he's presented essentially the new bill on socal separatism, which is quite controversial in France and probably. Is, yes implicitly targets in the Muslim population in France but it's true that if French I'll probably surprised how at ten suddenly the sued relationships and and how the sort of tension has related between the two countries of late. To. Be Fair that the two men have been at loggerheads for a long time so it seems on the train side. For advil hand, it's almost protects the those at the story of the call tunes because inside the being as your guests. Until you have just said, there's been real geopolitical issues and disputes between the two countries for one now. Yes. Well, I wonder how much of this also has to do with Turkey's domestic politics I mean we know that there's a huge economic crisis is this a diversionary tactic? It certainly helps distract people from the issues surrounding the economy and our one has been accused of using any number of foreign problems to distract his voters This in particular might resonate because the fact that it's religion and this is something that people hold. So close to their hearts on think that people are filing necessarily know every twist and turn. Of the issue. But when they hear of Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine, they might recall the images of the Prophet that the magazine published previously and that. Sir. Association. So when are two one talks about insulting Islam that's what comes to mind. Not The fact that published an image of political leader on the cover and so if bob he does have an impact. You know anything to get people's minds off of the fact that the jobless rate is soaring. The currency in Turkey has lost about forty percent of value this year against the dollar There's real economic pain here. So the certainly can help can help change the debate now.
Haunted Places: Ghost Stories
"My name is Johnson and the story I'm about to tell you recounts the worst evening of my twenty six years. Ironically the few friends I have discussed it with maintain that nothing happened that night say for luggage mishap. I hope to convince you otherwise. Not Guilty. That was how it began with the verdict read aloud to the crowded courtroom on a dark after noon in December. I sprang to my feet already grinning with relief. I was very to hear it though not for the same reason as my client the accused man such a short distance down the table wearing an inscrutable expression he had pale alabaster skin caused black has great across a high forehead and dark is set to deep into his skull but far worse than the. Face of John Turk was the crimes he was accused of as the private secretary for the defense. I had been in the courtroom for every day of the proceedings I had listened for ten days as the gentlemen for the prosecution described his crimes in detail how he dismembered his poor victim with no sign of remorse and then cramped her with line into. Ironically John Turks wickedness made our jobs that much easier. It was clear to everyone that he was guilty. Is only chance of escaping the gallows was a plea of insanity. Personally I would have been happy to see him hang even though my firm was representing him. But I was far less interested in the verdict than the next words out of the chief justice's mouth. Court adjourned. In no time at all, I was hurrying across the thoroughfare toward the offices of my employer to deliver the news. There was a chill in the air and a soft snow had begun to fall. This only served to brighter my spirit's further reminding me of the holiday that awaited. This time tomorrow I would be gliding through the Alps with a set of skis beneath my feet. My employer. Mr. Wilbur was seated behind his giant barristers desk perusing the file fron next case. He didn't look up as I entered and received the verdict with little more than a nod. Under different circumstances I would have been put out by his lack of interest considering that I had just devoted many sleepless nights to his case but I attributed his lack of enthusiasm to the fact that like the rest of us he would've enjoyed seeing his clients hang. Wraps the thing up just-in-time will brim said finally putting down his quill your getting away for Christmas on through the Alps. Was it. That's right I. told him. There is one thing I wanted to ask you would you mind lending me one of your kitbags? I. Didn't have time to pick one up and I leave before the shops open doll have Henry send one over tonight he said before I could finish. Then now get out of here before I find more work for you to do. I had a quick dinner at the club and the underground bloomsbury. I been renting a floor in an old house there rather cheerless place with big drafty rooms. When I arrived, there were only a few lights on in the windows and they stead at me like is set in deep dark sockets. My Landlady Mrs Monks was waiting for me in the hallway. She was shielding candle with one hand and had clearly been enjoying nightcap. This come by a man from Mr Wilburn. Sir She said and pointed to the kit bag on the landing. It was one of those large canvas duffle bags with the brass handle and padlock I was a bit surprised at the sight of it for it was quite lumpy in threadbare for the luggage of a London barrister but it was exceptionally large and looked I would suit my purposes quite nicely. I took the bag and continued up with the floor directly beneath mine was vacant, which was nice as it allowed me to work late into the night without fear of waking any neighbors. As I passed it on the stairwell my eyes glided down the hallway. It was fair say for the shadows and a few wires for picture frames still protruding from the wall. At lost I, reached my own flaw, the landing lead directly into a short hallway with the door to my bedroom at one end and an open sitting area at the other further on there was a very small kitchen with little more than a sink and stove. It was admittedly a bit drab the floors creaked the walls were dingy shade of yellow and the electric lighting was unreliable but I had done my best to finish it tastefully and bring some feeling of life to the place i. opened the door to my bedroom without looking and tossed the kit bag onto the floor beside my bed. Then continued onto the kitchen to puts on the kettle. By this point, the snow had become a heavy rain and the wind howled and rattle the window panes

The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

People can't see this, but Kabul was doing the thing where he points his fingers at his eyes and then he's pointing them at my eyes and it's very upsetting. So. How did the story which I love so much actually come about what was I think the spring early summer of twenty sixteen, which is important because we are coming off of the two thousand, fifteen mlb playoffs where as I'm sure you will remember Joey Batista flipped his bat which feels almost like I'm understanding what he did after an home run in the Al. Ds. I was between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers, and there were much hand wringing and commentary and debate as a result of that critics called the BAP slip disrespectful not only to the opposing pitcher button. The game in general were a player. I wouldn't do that. The fact of the matter is what he did did not offend you just don't sit there and flip your bad especially in the seventh inning but throughout this time, and before that, there were these videos of backflips coming from Korea right where. Korean baseball players were flipping their bats as defiantly as Batista and with great joy and style and panache, and these videos had gone viral in social media. Turk. Looking, looking into it a little bit. There's a there was an account on twitter website called Mike Abo run by a Korean American guy named Dan Kurtz, and so he was sending them out and then they go viral. Asked him kind of how he got into it? He used to live in Korea he was huge. Fan Korean based organization. But then I asked him. Okay. So why why are they? So Common Korea is this normal there why our guys not getting drilled in the head and he didn't know and I was super intrigued by that. So I got in touch with another Korean baseball expert, a commentator for the Daniel Kim who is based in Korea, and he had so many great stories about backflips and what they meant there in how they were so common but he also didn't know why or where it started and he told me you should just come here and figure it out. So that's what I did. So, you actually go to Korea and this I. Remember I, remember it sounding like one of the great expense report boondoggles ever. But you actually go to Korea with Mickey and your story begins in in Bussan right and so what do you actually find when you travel across the ocean and get there So we went to Poussin, which is a extremely large seaside city on the southern tip of South Korea. So they have a very popular team, the low tech giants, and the first thing we do is we go to a game at stadium and. It was revelatory.
Enes Kanter: Enemy of the State
"Jeremy SCHAAP WE'RE GONNA talk to and his canter himself later in this episode. But I I wanted to talk to you specifically because you did cover kanter story really in depth for sixty last year, and by now I suppose a lot of American Mba fans are vaguely aware that cantor is deep into this long-running feud with the government of Turkey, his native country. But most fans also probably couldn't explain what that viewed is actually about. So let's start off broadly because protests of all kinds have become kind of relatively commonplace in the NBA. What about kanter situation here mixed the so unique. Well Here. We have well established NBA player. Who is one of the most famous athletes his country's ever produced? Who cannot go back to his native country because he is someone who has every reason to believe if he set foot on Turkish soil now? You'll be arrested. Or that? Physical harm would come to him. And his canter made a decision a long time ago. that he would be a vocal outspoken in highly visible opponents of the Turkish government would sees him as nothing less than its enemy. And so what are the roots of this conflict between cantor and his home country? It's very simple and also very complicated. It's simple in the sense that cantor is persona non grata because he is a supporter. Of a man named Fatullah Doolan. Who is Muslim cleric whose lived in the United States last twenty, one years, and at one time was very close ally of president of Turkey but there has been a falling out between the two men and the respective movements. Over the course of the last decade aired one has been ruling in an increasingly authoritarian way. Silencing his critics, intimidating critics locking up opponents of his government's he's believed that Fatullah NHS movement has had too much power and he believes that ghoulish followers had too much influence particularly in the judiciary civil service in the police and that they have been working to undermine him grueling and air to honor now sworn enemies nemeses of each other. In an his canter as a supporter of Fatullah doolan vocal one at that. is considered by many intricacy as kind of traitor. How does cantor even get involved in this in the first place like you just described? An extreme religious political situation how does he end up taking side in this? Well, he's someone who grew up in fact as part of Fatullah Goulding's movement. The Movement had established schools by most counts, very good schools, not just in Turkey, but around the world and his cancer is someone who was educated in the schools someone who was associated with the movement as tens of thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of Turks have been over the last several decades. Now, as an adult kanter has continued to follow the teachings of Fatullah, Golan, who has promoted a moderate form of Islam in NS is certainly one of if not his most prominent supporter. So Jeremy described a dispute between two men who knew each other well, the president of Turkey Air Lan and this cleric Fatullah Golan now struggling for control of the country. And the date July Fifteenth Two thousand sixteen is a really pivotal one in this story. So what happened on that day roughly four years ago now? The details are still now for years later. Unclear in some respects. But what we can say is that there was an attempt to seize power in Turkey. By some elements of the military, we are coming on the air with breaking news and apparent military coup. Now, unfolding in Turkey Turkish state television has been seized by the military martial law imposed across the country. After a few hours, the coup was beaten back several hundred people died. And prison air to one immediately laid the blame at the feet of Fatullah Golan and his supporters.
Facebook Dialogue Platform with Stephen Roller
"Stephen Roller welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. You work on dialogue research at facebook dialogue research. I. Think of as a better way of describing chat bots. So I may refer to chat bots and Dialogue Research interchangeably during this episode. Why are chat bots useful? I think it's a longstanding dream in the field of artificial intelligence and computer science. Right? We've we've always had the dream of what if I just talked to my computer like I talked to other people. In converse with them, they would know what are my intentions? Why am I asking them this? What can they do to make my life better or help me along and you know? Programming is fun I love programming, but you know it'd be nice to just communicate with. Computers as well. And what about you? Personally, why are you personally interested in chat bots? Have you pursued this line of work of of all the different kinds of computer science research you could be doing? Yeah. You know I sort of stumbled into this area join fair after my phd where I did work in natural language processing but my my work, my background work was like a little bit more linguistically oriented focused on like the meanings of words a little bit more like what can computers just about language rather than how do we teach computers to understand language? And so you know when I joined. Fair. I was looking for for projects to join projects to collaborate on. So I gave dialogue a shot and it turns out to be a really great ren for me a mix of novel research using using the greatest and latest neural networking and machine learning techniques as well as a bunch of interesting software engineering problems and opportunities for Staley and things like this. What are the domains in which conversational agents or chat bots are actually useful today? What are the places where they're useful versus the places where they're not so useful? Meaning like, what's the? What did they do major? We've actually conquered rather than the ones we're stumbling. Yeah I think you know obviously, you've seen a wave of digital assistance and I think that work is very exciting. a lot of what we focused on in dial in par lay in the dialogue research at facebook is on open domain chat bots, which are chat bots that can talk to you about like literally anything and they're usually not focused on. Accomplishing tasks for you rather like the goal is just to have a conversation with you about anything for as long as possible. So that's primarily where we work and I think we've seen a lot of exciting advances over the past couple years to where I think if you were to try some of these newer chat bots that have come out in the past year you, you'd probably be really impressed with like Oh. Wow. This was further than I. Expect. So I think you see commercially is a lot of digital assistants a lot of success in this a lot of customer service type things when I'm really excited about when I think we've you know where things have made big strides in an big strides in the past year is on these open domain chat bots can actually talk to you about anything. Really so as in I can sit down with a chap today and say, Hey, what's the weather and what is this spot on my skin and recommend me a restaurant that looks appealing. I can do I can ask all of these things of a chat bot today. Yeah. I would put those still in the category of like task oriented Tech Chat bots where there's like some goal in mind like you know answering medical questions or tell me about the. Weather when I really tend to work on and what I'm excited about is these chat bots right so rather instead you might ask what's your favorite chess move and it might go into into detail about like what's its favorite move and why that is or what's your opinion of the fall of the Roman. Empire let's let's debate that. So it's it's it's less about you know what can you do for Maine and more about like let's enjoy the experience together. So, can you give a few more descriptions of what a general purpose chat Bot would be doing? Yeah I think the end game here either. You know wear a true general purpose chapman should do both of these things right? Like if I ask it to to. But Mia, calendar and by then it should absolutely help me out with that where I focused my research is the social part. and. So I think we should see a mix of. The box that we've been developing really focused on I'm having a few different behaviors that I don't think you tend to see any sort of assistant on type chat bots they have consistent persona so they'll have like personalities like. I love basketball or I have. Friends in in the tech industry or something like this, and they can use this information like. Consistently referred to it. You know one of the other attributes that chat bots working on developing and believe Ms really important is empathy bright. So a chat Bot should understand you know as as it's talking with you, what's your mental state like how are you feeling and respond emotionally appropriately to that so no if you say something like my just ran away, you know the chat bots should restall on appropriately with something like, oh, I'm really sorry to hear that have. You say something like I just got a promotion than the Chat Bot should respond Oh. That's great to hear. Congratulations. So responding emotionally appropriately is a really important characteristic of a of an open domain chap on the last one is general knowledge. So you know I think when people talk to to chat bots, they expected to know things about the world some of that's encyclopedia some of its common commonsense reasoning but you know if I ask what's the tallest building in America? You know I sort of expected to be able to have this have this information available to it and be able to answer some questions like that or even integrate this information in in common and common dialogue just oh by the way you know what's what's interesting or you know funny story about that sort of thinks. So consistent personality empathy and a knowledge about the world. These are all things. I think are really important in general demand. You know Geno Purpose Chat Bot. Empathy you mentioned empathy s one of these things that requires some maintenance of context as to what is going on in the conversation. The Chat Bot needs to be able to acknowledge the perhaps sad state or happy state of the person. It's Inter locating with tell me about context how does a Chat Bot retain and understand context in a conversation? Yeah there's a few different ways that people go about it. So one of the more classic ways that people will do and approaches that people will take is they'll do something off dialogue state tracking. So you have like some information about the dialogue like, Oh, the users asking about a restaurant and they wanted to be on fifth street right and you'll have this as some sort of state. That you could do say like some sort of database query about and help them then like when you're doing dialogue research or billion Chapa, the task becomes a lot of like keeping track of that state and updating that state as the conversation goes on. The way that we often approach it is a much more like role neural network fashion. So we just like input all the dialogue context all history as one big stream. You know sort of same person. One said this person to says that person one said this person to said back? What do you say next? So we just treat things as as raw strings and habit. Input that in the model has to figure out Oh, what do we do with fat? How do I respond? Who said what all this has to be from scratch? I'd like to get into. A little bit more of a conversation about facebook. So if you imagined facebook in five years, what are the tasks that you envision dialogue models fulfilling for facebook? That's an excellent question I. Think you know there's all sorts of places where we're dialogue can be helpful to our users. We already have this product called portal. which is a a really excellent product lets you make video calls with people. In. One of the things you can you can do, you can already say like hey. You know call mom. And it starts dialing up on. And that super? Nice, you know some of the other things might be no. As I might have an assistant on on Messenger that that's helping me keep track of what's going what's going on with my friends. You know I might say a assistant you know where the latest updates on my friends and they could. Integrate that information. And you know look through my my news feed for me and say, Oh, Hey, your friend Jim has new photo. He got married right Oh that'd be really cool. So, I think there's a lot of places for for dialogue to be part of FACEBOOK PRODUCTS You work on par lay, which is spelled P. A. R. L. A.. I. What Is Parlay? Parlay is a platform for doing dialogue research. It's an open source platform. It's gotten over one hundred contributors and it's it's got you would need to do to dialogue research so whether that's a collect data set or I want to train a new model, and there's all these data sets out there and I just WANNA use those without without trying anything. I want to create a new new model and I need to compare two baselines compared to other other approaches of people tried before I can just sort try those those different models. It's got a model. Do you know what are the pre-trade models somebody else's released in leverage those when building minute chat? Bot and then it's got everything you will need. To also evaluate a chat, Bot. So you know once you have Chapada unlike a lot of areas in I research it's it's not always clear how to evaluated except the have people talk to it. So we've got all the tools that you need to connector Chapada, Amazon Mechanical Turk and have people chat with it and you give evaluations or give. Performance rating instincts like this. A little bit deeper into the problems that parlay solves for researchers that are using it. Yeah I think quite a few different problems especially in all those all those different spaces you know when you're you're a researcher and you want to create a new data set that you know, let's say you want to create a new data said that teaches the model how to how to have empathy. The thing you're going to do is have humans talk and exhibit empathy and annotate their their their utterances with this sort empathetic information. So we have tools so that you can like creek quickly spin up user interface where you can have that chat where you can annotate that information and sort of build what you need for that. So similarly with evaluation you know I need to connect with the Amazon Mechanical Turk and had people evaluate. You know I don't WanNa have to spend so much time focused on building the UI of this tool or dealing with the engineering of connecting Amazon Mechanical Turk impairing humans together, I. So abstract way from you and when we do that is by treating all. In the in the world as agents so whether you're a data set or Talking to it on Mechanical Turk or human talking to it at your local keyboard or a AI agent everything is agent. So we treat them all the same. This gives us really nice distractions to work with so that we can sort of plug in AI model in place of a human or plug human in place of the model really easily. Parlay makes available a wide set of data sets through its API. How does parley use these different data sets? Yeah, we have over one hundred data sets in parlay. Some of them are from our group some of them are from external groups. And so one of the things we really focus on as a first class feature in. If I want to train the AI that exhibits multiple behaviors. I'm a train, a multiple data sets at the same time. So you it's really easy to sort of say. Okay. That set a data set the set see in start training three of them at the same time and get a model that can do all three of these behaviors on. So that's sort of first class functionality within within parlay. When we were talking earlier about having a model that exhibited the consistent personality empathy in knowledge, we did this with a sort of multitask training as it's called where we train on all different data sets. So if you're a new user or new researcher who wants to come into dialogue, you can sort of take the stock wouldn't data sets out there already and just start utilizing them as needed and if you wanna mix and match behaviors? Hey, no problem. described. The workflow for training chat with parlay. Yeah. So we have a lot of it's very command line, heavy utility or command line heavy platform. So if you want to train a new model, it can be as simple as calling the train model command from the command line and you just sort of say are here the tasks I want here's the model. The model that I want what's the model architecture and things like this? And you know here's the learning rate and all the other neural network parameters and you hit go and start training. alanna researchers went to do a more sophisticated, maybe make a custom architecture or make a custom data set and it's really easy to just sort of build only the part of the data set you need or build only the what's special about your model. She might go right a little bit of custom code utilizing are sort of abstract base classes and things like this. And you'll be off on your way training, your special model, and if you don't WanNa mess with data, you don't have to mess with data you can just use the existing data sets. If you don't WanNa mess for modeling, you don't have the mess with modeling you can just just the data in and start training
Trump, Biden Campaigns Unveil Bold New Mouth Sounds
"There's just four months left until the twenty twenty election and both Democrats and Republicans are ramping up messaging to make their case to the American public. Before November third while many have already chosen their preferred candidate in this especially polarized political landscape, there are still millions of undecided voters waiting for more information on each side's coughs, hard swallows, Lips Max, and throat clears here to discuss the mouth sounds at the forefront of each campaign is OPR. OPR political correspondent Dirk. Mullins, good morning. Dirk I leslie it sounds like both campaigns are beginning to ramp up ahead of this month conventions. That's right this week. The Joe Biden campaign released. The first of dozens of new mouth sounds they say constitute the backbone of the former vice presidents platform based on what we know from his recent interviews Democrats as a whole are eager for fresh new teeth, clatters and Boulder Saliva swishing take a listen. These are certainly new sounds from Biden. But I'm still hearing the broad Fleming us that makes them appealing to centrist Democrats as well as moderate Republicans. What about trump? Well, we're all familiar with President, trump's lowered wet displays of Brash burps, slobber and stuff to Sinus, rasps that have made him. So popular with his base and it looks like not much has changed for twenty twenty. So while the president is firing back against Biden, he's using the same inflammatory gurgles spit ups. We've come to expect here's trump speaking at a White House luncheon just two days ago. Certainly as wet, but the real question is, will it work for that? We'll have to wait until November right now. Biden, is leading trump in some key states and trump may need to soften his position on swirling coughed up snot around in his mouth if he wants to maintain his already tenuous hold on white suburban women, many of whom say Biden's overly moist inhales better aligned with their values, right. But our democratic leaders concerned that Biden's middle of the road mouth sounds could act as a double edged sword appealing to the middle while pushing away progressives who don't want more of the same that. That is a concern while Biden has a long history of neutral centrist mouth sounds his team hopes these new swishes and swallows will entice voters farther on the left who demand dryer sticky. Your mouth sounds and do progressively agree it appears so Bernie. Sanders, drew in huge numbers of young progressives who preferred his brand of spittle flecked tongue slaps and cracked lip wheezing. But with Bernie out of the race, now Biden's team is seeking to make space for these voters by taking on some of Bernie's mouth sounds just this week. The Biden campaign added this Fleming snort from burn himself to their website. You can really hear his lips parting, the sea ever drink water. It's unclear though he's publicly announced. He would be willing to drink water and Abidin Administration. Well, all I can say is I'm so sick of all these nasty sounds playing on my TV, I can't wait till this election is over share. But then before you know it, it's already time for the first mouth sounds twenty, twenty, four. Oh, boy, you're telling me. Thanks Turk. Dirk.
Cyber Safety, How to keep your identity protected using mindfulness and practical tactics
"How you doing Sandra? Hi. How are you doing? Thank you for having been your show. So, matty here. Right absolutely. So we're talking today about identity and cyber. Theft here. So give us a little bit idea on what that's about what does identity theft what is cyber theft? What does all that stuff? Of course? Let me start why I started. Niger, any may be. Definitely will get into into whether they cybersecurity are cybercrime or identity out. That okay with you. Sure. So I was returning a many many years ago I was returning from these things. Colombian. So I mean, the plane were landing in Miami and the pound announces that Homeland Security. Were boarding the plane. I course to ask for a handed to the to the agent and at the time I, head out these. It was relocated recently to the US. Ns I had my passport to the agents. then. He's next thing I know I'm the only one that being score of the plane by the two officers. And enthroning to the room you the. Famous rooms. that. Are In airports in I, don't know what's happening. Out. I'm about to connecting fighting my husband's waiting for Chico. So ten hours later and handed back my passport and is revoked. Few weeks later I mean Venezuela my native country and I'm trying to process my. Mom to processing again, you sign I had a lot of support from Maya Turks from my former employer journey. So we are in to again and. It was interesting officials. They kept asking me about China. Why we're doing China. China who is your contact? Like I never been in China. beating know what they were talking about. Some how when? S Model China go to hold of my information and was smuggling women into the US using my identity. Yes. So humid slate, you know everything I convinced, of course, a smuggler I gave my new visa and a back home two weeks later and returning from Euro my job requirement to travel a lot. And as we are going to. Control. I. Give My passport booth. I'm right back into that room. Because I have to. The, real me over and over that for six years. Yeah. So when I going everything was Chinese I. Mean it was really crazy at nobody wanted to travel with me a united in my almost wanted to travel with me. and. Finally. made the citizenship, my aspirin I changed my. Everything Courses Okay and at the time I was working tonight not. Having in the industry for over Twenty Years Community? It non no it was identity. It was not in the news. He was not like every day right now at breach or cyber drive or this or that. Back back in that day in that time, it wasn't so I couldn't make the connection. So few years later, I changed my career and I join cybersecurity cybersecurity? Area. Industry. And I realized what happened to me, and what happened you know when someone takes your identity with Tony, personage you for their gate. and. You know eat my corporate career I did that I? was very passionate about. Training and education awareness and Allison Park job that I enjoy the most. So I wanted to Redo it at a bigger scale as I left my corporate all by did your original question about what is at Know when stolen takes something from you. And wince when they break into your life, and that can be very dramatic experience and it can be for many reasons financial reasons it could be for. Someone inside your company that has. Either made a mistake or by attention. Jober that is you and ninety. Attack you could be for like in my case, there was a vying for for that criminal to have my identity so he can use it for him. So there are many life happens. It's It goes on all the time. We don't always hear about identity theft on the news I might do commercials about it. You know when the advertising different products, but it's something that a lot of us don't even really hear about. So how does that happen? How does someone? Get your information. So you can happen. Through many different things that can happen through your social media, it can happen through your email can happen through when you give out your credit card in a restaurant. It could happen when when when you ride formation with with a doctor. Often, office I mean, there are so many ways. Jury information can be obtained. We share a lot in social media share. Many different things. That are personal and that that is one thing that can use. Of you do that. You know sometimes we don't hear the news a lot about identity issue i. think we should do a because there's a new victim, every two seconds. A new victim I mean someone right now? has just being victim of identity DOPP and there's different decrease appointed. You know sometimes we someone let's say takes your credit car. And data charges in your credit card and probably most have had situation and the bank context you. Just have to get a new credit car. Scare of it. So it's a degree of identity theft is in the financial. Hesitation of identity theft, but it is. Your credit car on and bought things on your behalf. But it wasn't as faithful as many other situations are obviously. More were personnel or or moines more invasive.
Turkey Passes Measure To Tighten Control On Social Media
"Is no stranger to restrictions on the freedom of speech. Journalists, activists, political opponents regularly served jail time for things they write or say publicly. Well. Now the country's parliament has passed a bill it would force tech companies to comply with local rules for one of the last relatively free platforms in Turkey. Social media durable scan reports. It all started with a baby. In June, Turkish President Recep type Erdogan welcomed his eighth grandchild. But when the Erdogan family's official social media accounts posted about the occasion Some Turks took the opportunity to levy criticism at the president. Erdogan vowed to prosecute those responsible and have these kinds of posts removed and controlled nation Uto. Nature to it. Do you understand why we're against social media like YouTube, Twitter and Netflix, he said. This kind of media does not suit this nation. People see these platforms to make their voice glean. Bush is the editor in chief of Tae it a social Media fact checking organization based in Turkey. She says the legislation just passed by Turkey's parliament may become a de facto type of censorship. Turkey is a really polarized country, and many people don't trust Ah news on mainstream media organisations, son So people use social media, especially like tutor or Facebook to get news. She worries it may cut off one of the last platforms for free speech in Turkey. If people are afraid of being prosecuted, they may not post at all. According to a Freedom House report. At least 500 people have been detained since May accused of spreading fake or manipulative information about covert 19 Free speech advocates, however, say many posters were simply criticising government policies were tryingto warn the public with this bill, probably people just afraid off when they say something against government, they just think that they will punish the bill itself requires social media platforms to have a representative in Turkey. And respond to requests for content removal within 48 hours. Companies could be fined have their advertising band or their band with reduced essentially blocking their use if they don't comply.
Turkish parliament to vote on controversial social media law
"This month. During a televised speech, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a message for social media companies and the millions of Turks who used them so shut may damage other than the than the astonished that He said. Platforms like Twitter, YouTube and Netflix are immoral, not fit for the Turkish nation. This was just a day or two after Erdogan son in law, announced the birth of his child on Twitter and was then allegedly insulted by social media users. In a speech at a one vowed to crack down on today, Turkey's parliament began debating legislation that would do just that.
Science News Briefs from Around the Planet
"Hi. I'm scientific. American Assistant News. Editor Sarah Lou in Frazier and here's a short piece from July twenty twenty issue of the magazine in the section called advances dispatches from the frontiers of science, technology and medicine. The article is titled Quick Hits In it's a rundown of some non corona virus stories from around the globe. From, Turks and Caicos Islands analysis of Ano- lizards collected before and after hurricanes, Irma and Maria in twenty seventeen and eighteen months later revealed that the surviving lizards and their descendants had larger and therefore grippier Topaz. The team examined Lizard photographs from natural history collections and seventy years of hurricane data to confirm the trend. From Italy sediment samples drawn from the tree and see revealed hotspots with up to one point nine million micro plastic particles per square meter, the highest concentration ever recorded on the sea floor. Most of pollution comes from wastewater and sewage systems. Researchers say. From Antarctica, paleontologists found a fossilized forty million year old frog on Seymour. Near the tip of the peninsula, The FROG is related to modern ones living in temperate humid conditions in the Chilean Andes. From Iraq researchers probing the Turkish State Archives found the earliest known record of a meteorite causing a death. The object struck a hilltop in neighboring Iraq in eighteen, eighty, eight, killing one man and paralyzing another. From Japan results gathered from the KAMIOKA. Observatory which includes an underground detector tank filled with fifty five thousand tons of water, suggested intriguing discrepancy in how neutrinos, an anti neutrinos oscillate potentially violating symmetry between matter and antimatter. From Kenya scientists identified a malaria blocking microbe in mosquitoes on the shores of Lake Victoria. Every mosquito catalog with this apparently benign fungus was free of the disease, carrying parasite and experiments showed the fungus prevented its transmission. That was quick hits.

Google's Dave Burke Talks Android 11
"Hello welcome to all about android episode, four, hundred, eighty, two, it on Tuesday July. Twenty, first twenty twenty, where your weekly source latest news hardware and APPS for the faithful I'm now. And Ron Richards. And Florence Ion. Hello, hello, three of you joined. With a fourth, actually, we have a fourth person. The Brady box squares joining us today. Return guests to the show. We've now had you on enough time, so we can say you're definitely friend of the show Dave Berg who was the VP of engineering for Google for android. APP. How you doing Dave? Thank you. L. Community back I'm, excited to be here. Absolutely we're always excited to get you on, and we feel like we've kind of like struck gold when we can have needle that works on the ANDROID team on the show, especially this close to the launch of the next big version of android. Of course, android eleven were deep in the in the waters of the Beta right now. I've been running it on my Pixel xl. Flow riding. I'm I have not installed it online, but I'm living vicariously through flow and. Flow and Jason Dave. What is the most exciting point new role out is when the Beta on for the first time you get those first early reviews, or when it's finally rolled out as the final release. The final release all already anticlimax, everything's working, and so we're not too worried about a Beta, the first. Not The first of all reviewed with the first data is the one that I most nervous, because that's when all of the things that meeting working on SORTA. Come together, the narrative comes together and subways loader at that point to make sure we actually added something that makes sense. PASA. Just good, but we all. Right for sure I mean when you're doing a public Beta. You're doing that I beta. It's really kind of a symbol from Google to say hey, we feel confident enough in this. That is not going to totally wreck your phone. You know through some weird random occurrence that happens. It's going to be pretty safe. It's going to be relatively stable. Nothing's perfect of course, but it would be. It would be kind of difficult to release that and realize Oh. Wait a minute. We actually did miss that thing and it's. It's turning your device too much, so let's reverse that so I. Imagine there's lot of nervousness around. Yeah exactly do we always going to be tested? We call it. A lot of Kugler will use the bills early on, but it's never the same as going broadly in others can wifi access points me out and seeing devices. We haven't seen the Turks are absent installed himself getting up. Water Reaches Sube reporting for US getting the feedback from the community is just as critical to to make it all work together. For sure and you've had a little bit of uncertainty obviously everybody has had some uncertainty with this work from home. A little bit might be the wrong choice of words there, but it's kind of played. A had an effect on the schedule a little bit as well. How has that like? How has that been? You had an idea for the roadmap through. Developer previews and into Beta and then he kind of had extended a little bit. Why why the extension and how? How was it navigating through that? Yeah question I think. The biggest challenge isn't the length of time working from worse at the transition from work in the office, working from home, and so you know I think as we all know. It was quite a quite are quite. Our world turned upside down routines. Mess up and it'll be. We're getting up at home to work from home as RB. A lot of work to do on our tooling so that you could use for example, high-powered desktops are on your desk in the office. devices debugging at home, and like making sure plumbing rolls out works remote add and things like that and so. There was kind of a point or lost productivity really over few weeks to get back up, we actually tracking our internal. Sales so changeless Alec the flow of changes are going through. The team probably dropped him at seven eight percent I would say in the work from home shifts. And so that you know that kind of added up And, so we decided schedule back a couple of weeks. I'm actually rivalry keeps going like I I mean I think actually I mean. Everybody TAP to this this. We're all working your own but it was nice. Especially see my team to make out. Adopt adoption and keep things moving along.

"If your legacy admission and getting into these top thirty the institutions in America right now right and we all agree that there's no way Meghan McCain would be on the view if her last name wasn't mccain all right thanks giving everybody have you had your turn duck in yet so well Someone who got schooled is Ben Shapiro. This is one of the best stories that we've ever had the opportunity to cover. He went on the BBC and the original video was twenty two minutes. Okay you give us twenty two minutes we'll give you the world No but seriously we can only show you a a small portion of it which is about ten minutes? It's just so good. Because Shapiro gets called out on something and then he goes ahead and claims that the person interviewing him has a political affiliation. That's biased okay. Take a look conservative Whiz. Kid Ben Shapiro was recently on the BBC and he was getting interviewed interviewed by a conservative host on the BBC. I think that's an important bit of information to give you context into how disastrously this went for Ben Shapiro who who is also conservative. Now without further ado let's take a look at how this interview went down some of the ideas that are popular in your side. The politics would seem to take back to the Dark Ages Georgia new abortion laws. which you are much in favor of that A woman miscarry could get thirty years. A Georgia woman who travels to another state for an abortion procedure could get ten years. These are extreme hard policies. Well okay a couple of things one. I'm not sure I mean frankly. I don't know whether you're are you an objective journalist or are in opinion journalists. That ask questions okay. So you're you're a supposedly objective journalists calling policies with which you disagree barbaric. It's only one side of the political aisle notes S. ideas so I just want to point out that we should at least be honest in your own are you are you a member in America is now so polarized on one program you you only have the left and another one you just the right. My job is to question. Those who have strong views put towns of to them. If you were an asthma am amusing. I would be putting pro abortion questions to you but you are really when you call the portraits. So why don't you let me ask you my question Christian Sir Sir. I'm happy to answer question. Please answer this one. Would you suggest. Would you suggest that a late term. Abortion is brutal. I'm not taking you Bruce Questions Sir you just suggested. The pro life position is inherently brutal and terrible. So I'm asking you as an objective journalist. Would you ask the same question to a pro choice. Advocate hit by calling their action brutal and asking us why is it that a bill banning abortions after a women's has been pregnant for six weeks is not a return to the dark ages. What's your answer? My answer is something. Called Science. Human life exists at conception it ought to be protected. It almost looks like he got triggered. They're totally throughout throughout the interview. And you're going to see more video of that in just a minute. And let's he walks out okay. So WHOA WHOA WHOA. He does he just like it's over. It's over her. Please cut like he can't walk out. I need to start a stance their way these waiting for them to and guys. Have you ever heard a Wedgie. Like speak like Ben Shapiro. Zero sounds like if a Wedgie were like anthropomorphized and came to life That's Ben Shapiro and also like like a someone one who like empathy balls having dropped it you know. Just sorta like like the high that is that's been okay. So he says I'm I answer your questions but doesn't seem happy to be answering your questions. In fact so much so that he walks out at the end but on the issue of abortion it is certainly returning earning too old times. If and a lot of people do believe that it is dark ages and and so to me the most relevant part of this first part is Shapiro crying about how you have to give an unfair advantage to my position by calling it even know he doesn't he's asking in your questions and your job in that context to answer them and so if you don't frame things in a way that is pleasing to conservatives they will definitely cry certain number one go to trick here so I read an op Ed in the Washington examiner which is a right wing outlet and the title of the OP OP. Ed was in defense of the center view right and The point of view was look. The interferes style from some of the hosts from BBC is is very different from what you would expect from American news anchors because their whole point is to stay calm and kind of get under your skin and it appears. That's exactly what happened. And and what he was asking was I think okay to ask because again. You're having someone like your job as a journalist or as as a news host isn't to just simply ask simple questions and play patty cakes with the person you're having the interview with its to ask the hard questions and so if you juxtapose the way. He interviewed Ben Shapiro to the way that he's interviewed others from the left. You would see very similar treatment. Which is why this this host? What was his name again? Yeah Andrew Neil. He's not coming from a liberal perspective. In fact if you look at his personal politics he is not liberal at all. He's just coming at it from the contrarian perspective which I think makes the interview view way more interesting yeah he. He's the publisher of conservative outlet So He's definitely conservative. Murdoch the like God King of Republican for Right wing political media in the world. He Owns News Corporation. which was the parent company of Fox? Four while he personally made Andrew Neil the editor for one of his. It's top newspapers in the ninety s at that same time when he was an editor by the way he started smearing or he at the time he was an editor he allowed. These smear saying that HIV didn't cause his aides to be printed in his magazine. He was one of the Tories conservatives in England who when Tony Blair and George W Bush for getting ready for the war in Iraq back. He said that the lead up to the war in Iraq was very well executed. It was well. Done it with masterful Andrew. Neil that sounds the guy that Ben Shapiro just called the liberal because he asks them tough question which is unacceptable bend demands that you ask them softball questions which the American media complies with and then call them you you know all sorts of positive words a New York Times? Can't stop raving about Ben Shapiro all my God. It's a right winger who talks in complete sentences the cool kids philosophers. What else? They'll say we're just getting started. We have more video from this interview. Let's take a look to my question to you. You purport to be an objective journalist. BBC purports to be an objective down the middle network. It obviously is not it never has been and you as journalists are proceeding to call one side of the political aisle ignorant barbaric and sending us back to the Dark Ages. Why why don't you just say that you're on the left so hard? Why can't you just be honest? This is serious. It's a serious question if you only knew ridiculous that statement as you said it. So let's move on. Would you from your own Louis. Really loving that vet. He tries to say I'm just repeating you exactly what she said so. Obviously you're a leftist. I just told you I just explained.

"Off North Vietnam on his. Wait a bomb a frigging lightbulb factory. Okay and then. He was there for if he was there for years cheated on his wife as soon as he got back as his handicapped wife and then literally everything I'm saying is fact. Just look it up. And then he was given an opportunity to to be senator to be a senator in Arizona for like seven hundred three years. Because apparently the only qualification you need is like okay. You're just like bad at flying planes. It's fine go ahead. You're war hero now cheated on your wife. It's school for and what did he do with that. What did he do in that time? What did he do during the time that he was he was a senator? You know what he did. One of the worst financial crimes of all time One of the gross things anyone's ever done and he he spent his other time. Vetoing stuff like Boycotting Apartheid South Africa. You know just just the Great Dude I love I love reasonable mavericks like John McCain. Also He. He's The reason why we have Sarah Sarah Palin and the tea party and some could make the argument a person like Donald Trump in a position of power in American politics so thank you John McCain true revolutionary accelerating the destruction structure of the United States of America. Your deliveries is like eats a lot for me to keep a straight face for. But I don't think I've ever seen anybody that honest breath on this subject. Yes let me just real quick go through. What hospitals alluding to upsides and downsides and then whether then what do we think about legacy right so I thought he dropped three planes not six but it might be six? Bankruptcies are trump that you're thinking about But you guys can all look it up as well and he did it keeps crashing planes. He took too much risk. And maybe didn't study enough. So and yes all the things that he's referring to voting you know against Martin Luther King Day in Arizona. It's so you can look all that stuff up to to be fair. The one part that he did do he was a hero on was when he was captured they were going to release him. because Dad was an admiral. And then we're GONNA use it for propaganda and he refused to be released and he stayed with his fellow soldiers there for years and years so that is also gave away positions -sition of like US forces he did it did give away positions under torture even though he advocated against torture but apparently was affected when the non. Look if you get tortured. I'm not going to hold you accountable for anything under torture knowing right and he did a he did what he was. The last vote of course to protect obamacare. So that's good. All get out of here was but he was also he had a he had the opportunity to make sure that never even reached a position where he would vote but on it and at that time he was like well. Let's hear this out like he did here blue. He turned around and he voted for the tax cuts. That would effectively be the the skinny repeal that they were pushing for you know why because he wanted his dumb daughter to have all of that money that all of that intergenerational wealth that he got by currying a person cheated on his handicapped wife with so John McCain his wife like the war or anything like. It's just it's I think it's important to understand the character John McCain racist awful human being I really want to talk about legacy Agassi admissions in college. Yeah this is Great Meghan McCain so much that's why I love bringing this stuff up because she literally literally banks on the fact that her father was this awful person who who skirted by and everyone respects because he was like media-friendly and now she has a job on the view exclusively for that reason now. It's kind of interesting that someone like myself is talking about this. Given the fact that I'm sitting here because I worked for my uncle's company right difference between I'm just saying this is something that I know that a bunch of people a bunch of reactionaries. An an extra are going to be like disclosed. Look at look at how hypocritical was talking about. Nepotism awesome the system that I advocate for if implemented we would no longer have issues with nepotism in that regard. You don't hate nepotism capitalism. Yeah so a couple of things. I'm not defending John McCain. I'm giving you a full record. He had a couple of good things that he did and he did all the things that house is talking about. So that's a full record and I know it makes makes a lot of people uncomfortable to hear that but that is the reality of it and my number one problem with John McCain is when we haven't even mentioned which was that he voted for every war that he's ever seen wanted go to war with Iran Iraq war disaster Ron Moore would have been even worse if we listen to John McCain bomb bomb bomb Iran that's right but he like a couple of have have decent moments where he's sort of for Obama said he's not Muslim etc.. It's it's a really low bar right but other Republicans weren't willing to do that so that's the full picture but back to the legacy admissions. It does go towards the point that we're all making here which is like missions. Don't make sense. I want my kids go to same schools. But that's not it's unfair. It's unfair advantage for them to have. When when if you're poor in West Virginia or Kentucky or the Bronx or wherever you are and you worked up a you didn't have the advantage of my kids it's had will the new earned even more not less? That makes no sense. We don't talk about it enough. Legacy admissions are the original affirmative action. They just are like when you think about like the college application process. You're talking about you know you gotta get those letters of recommendations you gotta do your your extracurriculars gotta list all of this stuff. A personal essay your scores all of that legacy Agassi admins admits they skip all of that and still account for almost thirty percents. Some of these Ivy League programs and near only original people who could go to these universities were wealthy white men and so these are their descendants. There's a it perpetuates that originally racist system by continuing to only only admit those people that had the in the spas empirical evidence on this forty percent higher chances if your legacy admission and getting into these top thirty the institutions in America right now right and we all agree that there's no way Meghan McCain would be on the view if her last name wasn't mccain all right thanks giving everybody have you had your turn duck in yet.

"Like the lean back. Ok Yeah No. My here. Part was when he said unbelievable really elites like literally the most believable there is at Fox's parenting trump talking boys if you noticed the reason why they lost it is Ed Very Subtle thing that one William said there in the beginning when he said you can tell the talking points are making the rounds if you listen here. So that's one yes us and he might reverse. You'll see it on the table. You're listening here. I see that. They're making the rounds with the talking points. So that's why Jesse waters and Greg Greg Goldfield. We're like all right all right all right. Look it's fair for gut filled waters to say no. I'm a conservative and I happen to believe what trump believes and so. I'm defending him because I'm leaving him mm-hmm but if they're pretending they're unbiased do that's crazy talk news people on Fox News Parrot. Donald Trump talking points so much that when they deviate from that script just a little. I bet just a little bit don't goes onto a what's wrong with Fox News. I I do like folks news. Maybe I need to go to Norway and and finally come on. Yeah any UPBRAIDS them and they get upset so look that's point one point two is you can have a certain Political perspective but if you are looking at it from Just said about policy point of view you just political point of view. This is my boy and I'm gonNA defend them right or wrong. Well that's being part of it and and that's hanging talking points so we've been incre. I would argue. We've been really principle here and I could make that argument. I think pretty persuasively. We've challenged Obama from the left all the time. So we were disciplined in our in being principal. Progressives right not not in being partisan and being well Obama wants to join the Gulf drilling in the Gulf is great. That's what Fox News would do all. I've always been in favor of drilling in the Gulf drill away. Maybe drill baby drill right. I know we're like that's a bad idea. We were right. He was wrong right. When Obama did signature drone strikes from not knowing who they were killing and then they want them killing an American citizen one purpose and and then his son accidentally? That was a quite a coincidence. We call them out on. And we've got a lot of heat from democratic establishment and a lot of mainstream media. We're like Oh yeah. We're killing American citizens without due process is wrong. Yeah I do. I don't care that Obama did it. I don't care that Eric holder made up a new legal principle. People say new process doesn't necessarily mean going to the courts yes it does read the Constitution. So we're we're principal in that sense we've called on Bernie Sanders on some of his positions Elizabeth Elizabeth Warren on some of our positions as Cetera whereas Fox News. The reason you guys are seen as partisan hacks who do talking points is that when trump clearly breaks the law. You don't go you don't even entertain the idea like why it's interesting. I mean it is illegal to ask for a foreign government to give you assistance. I wonder if he did that when he said. Look into Joe Biden. I don't even know what the other side is. Honestly like all they do is try to Joe Biden. Did something wrong and hundred bite. That's why we call talking boys because that was literally talking points that the trump White House accidentally sent the Democrats because they're idiots and so and then you see Greg Gut felt sad on Fox News and it has no real like he doesn't address the issue. I don't know what his defense is right. But in a he's is being partisan as almost to be fair not every hosts on Fox News. We'll get to that in a second. But as ninety percent of the hosts on Fox News. or saying that's why we think your partisan partisan hacks Redo talking points. Brad bear supposedly straight news anchor. The other days like the president didn't ask the Ukrainian Indian leader to investigate you and he said just look into it really that's your straight news anchor.

"Okay they taught about my predictions. I got a new prediction for you. John I what was the prediction plane. I'm playing okay so So first let's start with The premises for the Donald Trump will not be an office By the end of his term. Now if you're not at all surprised by that I've been saying that literally from day one and but I wanted to say On CNN and it was the context of how disastrously Donald Trump is going with this polling numbers etc.. So and as I told you from day one there's a couple of reasons reasons why made that prediction one. Donald trump is not capable of Managing himself out of a wet paper bag so he's never failed to declare bankruptcy craftsy on anything that he's ever run and it doesn't take that long and so I'm actually quite shocked that he's lasted this long And so he he's. It's going to be an epic debacle. It certainly has been in many ways But part and parcel. That prediction was at some point. The economy crashes because trump will do such maniacal things things that you can't help but crash there so we're teetering on that edge now. He his polling is anywhere from thirty six to at most most generous says forty three percent Averaging about forty percent that is terrible numbers arable. I'm already under any normal circumstance You would have no chance at reelection reelection. If you're an incumbent polling around forty percent now yes would you have. Fourteen months left now when everybody including the trump administration believes that. We're GONNA hit a recession Russian if we hit that recession which is again. We're on the precipice of nobody's routing for it but it's a reality that even the Republicans knowledge yesterday. We did a story about several Republican senators. ooh Cups a recession right then. Trump's going to dip into the twenties and is to set of things that are going to happen and again all of this. I said from the very beginning. And it's coming to fruition. I believe as we look. You've got his legal troubles to begin with and he's a crook lifelong criminal. I knew he'd continue to be a lifelong criminal and a conman but when they crashes that's when the donors run and that's one of the donors tell the Republicans. Release the hounds. This guy's not going to win anyway. He's GonNa pull down the rest of the Republican senators and House members and then there's so there's the Republicans publicans and they're driving engine being donors abandoning him when the market crashes and they already got their tax cuts and so it again gold. We're back to in the beginning. I said they're GONNA do is tax cuts and once they got the tax cuts. They don't need schlep anymore. Right schmuck anymore and then and then the last part of it is trump. Trump doesn't like being humiliated. You he wants to go and lose forty states get slaughtered in this next election so again you're going to think I'm over confident president. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I've heard of the thousand times before so and and if you remember I've been saying all along he's not going to get impeach is going to resign. I you said you're GONNA wake up. You're going to wake up one morning by trump has gone. What do you mean he's gone? Yeah this morning he resigned. What right so I ah? I'm never going to be moved to be the last thing you know Dick to. I'm glad that you I want I want you have an opportunity. ARTETA jumping. Well what do you think he make it to electricity. Does he run for reelection. Oh he runs for re-election gets wiped out and tries to stay on as long gacy possibly can two reasons one. He is addicted to being president. This is a guy who everyone his whole life has thought is a loser liar. Conman sleaze and the only and basically he only fools a few people here and there. That's his whole career and so now he's in a position of authority authority where people actually have to be nice to him So so he's never had anything like that before so that so he's addicted to being the president number. One number two is that if he leaves office early he's going to get prosecuted. And that was basically like Bob. Muller has repeatedly said that I you know I would have done some other stuff here but you know what I can't indict the president so okay so mad. Those are two reasons I would turn around on you. Okay so the the weaker cases he's being powerful president but if you get humiliated in the elections will you've lost that power remember. He often will run and then go. I would've won. I mean I would've. I would've done this. I would have done that but I mean I wanted anyway remember. He's a child while he wanted. Anyway is is such a classic move but the star cases see I was. I got frustrated when I realized that Democrats were never going to take action. I guess I'm never going to hold them accountable and that was like Jank. Are you sure I was outing myself for a second there time. Yes that's right and so and I had not calculated which I should have the depth of the weakness of the Democrats. How pathetic they are that? They wouldn't challenge them at all but now get a load. All of this. Trump might resign because he thinks well. I'm never going to be prosecuted like if he was really worried that he was going to go to prison afterwards. Then he'd want to hold on in your life as most bashes do but he thinks they're never gonNa Prosecute me Democrats and these prosecutors are losers they the with everything alright and I'm Outta here. I'll pretend I would've won. I do agree with the not prosecuting. I think that Donald Trump could chew one of Pelosi's colleagues dead and I don't think that she would do anything about it. Unfortunately but I disagree. I know it's a reference to his. I think he started it. And he's the president but I disagree with a a lot of the rest of what you guys are saying I look I can't imagine him stepping down. I think that that would be a humiliation. I have no doubt that he would spin it as I was forced. So by COU. He's going to talk about it for the rest of his life but I think he's going to run and I think it's going to be difficult for a number of different first of all. It depends on how we come out of this primary. We have a good progressive significantly easier if we have Joe Biden. Who knows what's going to happen on election day and so that definitely matters but then also we have the electoral college we have voter suppression? We have all of these things that are designed to make it more challenging and closer than it should be so. I don't think that we should get too excited about anything polls economy. I'm I'm not convinced that if the economy tanks it will hurt him at least with his base maybe Independence Chore and. Maybe that's enough for him to lose in terms of him stepping out before the election though you mentioned tick tick tick tick so. We had at one point about whether he would make it to the midterms. Guess which. I don't think I've ever paid for Do you remember do you remember at one point. Ty T. we set up a pool. The resignation impeachment pool.

Too late even for chemotherapy and still she wouldn't have gotten around? To telling him. Except that one night watching television it got so bad. She gasped and struggled up holding her. Waist do you want to hand he asked taking a step towards her I can manage she answered feeling for the stairs three times like that he tried to reach her But being so little practiced? In such gestures. Three times the hand fell back and took its place. On moving at his side After the burial, he let things take their course the neighbors watched in pity. Rolled up bales standing silent in the fields. With the after grass growing into them and wanted what he could be thinking of Which was that evening when Almost breaking with a lifetime of, taking real things for shadows He might have embraced her with a brothers arms I find Bernard of Donahue's poem immensely sad A marriage is of course a tie the binds in the Celtic traditions of Scotland touching, is very much a.

"I mean, when it's coming to like web services or they have been doing a lot of contract with military, Amazon really has the infrastructure and the insane ever expanding size to really be able to make a push into this market and they have a history of art of being interested in it and entering into it over the last couple of years I'll be, I guess, Google. I would say it would be the second Conteh. Gender of they most recently increased investment in Oscar Health? I believe there was an article in wired about that perhaps last week, but all these different tech companies are. Looking to get a slice of the healthcare technology pie. But I feel like Amazon has been the one that consistently and over the longest period of time has been making gains in both a personnel and staff sense, and that they are assembling the members of the team that would concretely be able to do this and actually forming companies and buying up other companies and spending serious capital on a moving into this market. I mean, one billion dollars for a pill delivery startup, I guess, isn't that much money to Jeff Bezos, but in comparison to the sort of money that other companies are spending to get into this niche market? It's pretty sizable. I also think it sort of sending signals of the importance of this aging popular. Action that we have just a baby boomers or beyond or even less than that. I mean, just the fact that that there's so many people that not only that there's, you know, more people getting older, but we're living longer, and so we're going to depend on probably have to depend on medicine in a greater fashion, you know?

But it was essentially to create a more forcible healthcare program for their employees and to be able to streamline many parts of the medical electronic process for their workforce, which is obviously huge. But the way I've been seeing it as at this would be the perfect testing ground for a few would want to. I don't know, create a healthier company to be able to wrangle in all of the gig economy. Workers who don't have affordable healthcare options or anybody who wasn't able to afford the healthcare options and their state. Once the ACA has crumbled and there's nothing left, or I guess. Yeah, like you said, any of the our aging population who has is going. To have increasingly costly. Healthcare needs, pharmaceutical Turk comes to mind. I could totally see branding than. And then I, I think it was back in February basic air was quietly announced, which is Amazon's kind of over the counter line of of products of like medication products and stuff. So it's not like they're not playing in this space. They're just keeping it real low key. Although I do like the sound of pharmaceutical Turk. I think they should go that. Good. Yeah, you should. You should. That domain. Now. To sell it. Interesting. I could totally see though, like in sort of seriousness I could see like a very profitable, very, very lucrative business on Amazon's part on just one aspect of this from the subscribe and save sort of angle when it comes to medication because a lot of.
