Congress releases scathing report on Boeing 737 Max
"Words, deception and basically disturbing both words used In a scathing report from Congress on their investigation into the Boeing 7 37 max development. It's re sort of its certification and maybe even it's re certification and about its relationship with the FAA. Pretty damning stuff. Right, John? By far the report that came out of the House Transportation Infrastructure Committee. Really highlights of very really damning picture of how Boeing and the FAA went about certifying the 7, 37, Max and All the missed opportunities to alter course and I think that you know, really spells, you know? Ultimately, a process breakdown about how this whole thing proceeded seemingly normally. But again going back in retrospect and looking at all these different opportunities to change course on DH account for this. The design of the 7 37 different way really is you see that over and over and over again in the house ended up collecting over it's over teaching of investigation. And it's my It's my guess that some people might actually go to prison on this because the actual behavior in my estimation was criminal. You know when you talk about criminal negligence It's written all over this, but it goes back to the basic relationship that the Federal Aviation Administration has with both manufacturers and with airlines. Two areas. They're supposed to regulate their not their clients. They're not. They're partners. I remember John being an immediate United Airlines. You may have even been there that day. I think you were When one of the operation guys, you know that stood up and said, You know, we are going to get the plane recertified. We're working with our partners at the FAA. And I stood up immediately and raised my hand and said, Excuse me. Did you just defined the Federal Aviation Administration as your partner? Isn't that the root problem here? And, uh, I didn't get a good answer. Because if you go back to the history of the FAA, we're talking decades. The people that actually certify any airplane, whether it's Boeing or in the old days, McDonnell Douglas or Lockheed or Convair. The people who certify that plane is airworthy. Or actually, on the payroll of the manufacturer. They're called FAA designated inspectors. Now, if that doesn't scream conflict of interest, I don't know what does The amazing thing is that that discussion is not new mean you like you just said that this this goes back decades. I mean, when when you hung it at you know what happened when the MacDonald does. DC 10 was ground back in the late seventies. There was all this discussion around delegated authority and how and how they're not. The FAA was able to act as an adequate regulator of Of those they were tasked with regulating And by the way, and by the way, John in that particular case, I know it so well. American Airlines maintenance guys figure out they could save four hours per engine change in maintenance by violating the maintenance manual and using a forklift truck instead of doing it with with pulleys and levers. Which violated the maintenance man, and they actually want told the FAA. They're gonna violate it. And the FAA said Okay and in the plane that crashed American flight 1 91 in Chicago, which, by the way, still ranks As the worst aviation disaster in this country in history. Up on the plane in question they were putting on a new engine. They have to fasten it with special bolts, and they had two of the bolts in two of the four bolts in when the when the lunch whistle blew So they went to lunch, and during lunch, they forklift lost pressure. Which is the reason why McDonald Douglas didn't want him to use a forklift truck. It bet one of the bolts and broke the other, but they didn't know it came back and install the other two bolts. They flew the plane empty to Chicago on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, Back in 1979 and They took out a full load of passengers for Los Angeles. We know what happened next. So this we knew this. You know you're absolutely right. This this is this is or 40 years ago, just about Yeah, and you know, And when you look at the DC 10 I mean, I've spent a lot of time in the last two years looking at the history of it because it is so similar to the 7 37. You know a lot of the new Certainly the root causes were different around the maintenance. Of the engine and how it was attached the aircraft, But there are there were definitely issues around around looking at the same core issues as your craft manufactures, which is how do humans interact with their technology? And how do How did an aircraft respond to damage and it's never just one thing

They won't be a part of the season. Regular season capacity has been reduced by four games so Now season will not be as long as the season was already like thirty two games. I believe it depends on the conference in the team, but it wasn't as long. And teams can start practicing as much as twelve hours per week starting September twenty first? So those are the things that come along with this restart. Obviously, the season was initially scheduled to begin November tenth, but obviously, it was pushed back and said, they wanted to make share. where it was where we were. Overall. So obviously you can tell the instability is definitely trying to. Get sports rebounded backup and going, and you know obviously.

In the term, it pays for for something like it produces ninety eight percent or more of the money for the NC Double A.. We need to have the tournament.

Banksy loses EU trademark fight with greeting card company
"Bad news for everyone's favorite little spray painting. Scoundrel the Bart Simpson of Street Art World Bank see lost a two year long trademark battle this week after a greeting card company co-opted one of his most famous images the flower thrower despite his representatives successfully applied to trademark the image in two, thousand, fourteen, the greeting card company won their case by claiming banks he's. Choice to hide his identity as well as his choice to paint graffiti on other people's property without permission marred his ability to be identified as the unquestionable owner of his works banks.

Inside the BLAST Restructure
"Blasts saying corona has hit our bank account a little bit. We gotTA restructure this if we want to really make it beneficial for the long haul. So what they're doing is moving forward, they will be increasing the participation fees paid two teams and reducing the prize money again. The I feel like this was kind of lost in the tweet because their initial tweet didn't really explain very well, the total sum paid by blast will remain identical. Okay. So I think that's important at the end of the day to realize that however the kicker here. Is the players aren't necessarily seeing that payout for participation. They see a lot of times in their contracts, the prize money. So you're taking away prize money to give it to direct payout to the ORG which you're like okay. Well, what's the big deal? It's all going to the same place not necessarily because pending on your contract pending on the Org again they only give you your pay right they give you what you agreed for on a payment and the prize money. So the double whammy here is that they failed to consult the counter. Strike Professional Players Association the CS. On this manner question for you why do they have to do that? That's a very good question which I'm glad you brought it up because I always every time this comes up in the world of counterstrike with. Like the CS PPA. Up We were not consulted about this we will be speaking with them behind closed doors blah blah, blah no one here heard about this at what point do they? Do you think they call an emergency meeting and say guys do people even know were around? Like do they like and I've said this before I feel like they have lost their own way whereas before it came out, it was, hey, we wanna look out what's best for the players while also working with tournament organizers and or gigs. To figure out what's best for like the system right now while then it's kind of turned into well, no, we feel like it should just be this way and we're going to create our own rankings because we don't like the way they do it You know things like that. I? Guess. You know perfect player union world. Yes. You would consult the players if you're going to change the payout. However if they didn't need you to start it, why would they consult you to change it? I'm probably GONNA take like a approach on this that if any players listening, I apologize ahead of time but like in a way what Henry g did by releasing the salary information I, say Henry Cloud Nine as the cloud nine decision right team decision to release salary? Information. Like you're not gonNA get a ton of sympathy from me at least when it comes to a little bit more money going into the owners pockets because what I see like again, this is one hundred percent my point of view I. don't even know if you agree with this what? I what I see in counterstrike right now is a game that is getting to this Odd Breaking Point doesn't mean the game's going to go away or die or nothing like that. I'm just saying it's at a point where. There's just this top end were just really top heavy in the fall off to me is is fairly massive when it comes to the landscape or the overall ecosystem of counterstrike, we're not seeing a ton of new teams invest into counterstrike. We've talked to team owners that have said it's a bad investment other than getting your name out there like if you're willing if you're willing to put in the money to be one of the top five. Great, it's good recognition by kind of beyond that. We see several team owners taking cheaper. Pats just to stay. Around in counter strike, but not necessarily the compete at the highest level because they know. To do that, it's millions of dollars in now we see a contract for the first time right now I know that includes Alex is a buyout but let's just say he's he's making around three four hundred K. annually off of this contract. Plus a buy out fee and then he's getting prize money from the six hundred events that go on throughout the year. Right? It's not like blast has. One. Event there multiple events in including one pretty much. Every weekend at this point, right weather's blast or star ladder ESL or face it. There's an event. Every single weekend at this point players are making really good money. Now I know there's a saying like, well, it's never enough right like you should be able to get whatever you're able to will. This was an opportunity for the elders in blast toward together in make making a little bit more beneficial for the ORG is. A huge problem in that. If they didn't consult with them. It's because they chose not to you know they didn't WanNa do it like we know you guys are making a ton of money. We need ours. Also a blast is still paying out the same amount, but I do feel for ownership groups right now in counterstrike because it is so outrageously expensive ended it's taken away from us a little bit in my mind because of how inflated the cost of Gone We've seen. Teams completely just wipe themselves out of counterstrike together we saw cloud nine one of the biggest stories take two year hiatus essentially from the game because they didn't want to compete at a high level. That's what it came down to. Right. They have the money the one of the most valuable orange but chose not to spend. Yeah. In put all their resources into counterstrike instead don't have two dollar and team cloud nine the just enough to stay relevant. That's it. They did the again that we've seen several teams do let's keep our name in the game refloating around right. If his top thirty we'RE STILL ON HDTV, we're still going to be in a handful of events 'cause re cloud nine a but at the end of the day, they didn't see it worthwhile to invest in the counter strike again, they're coming back now but that's after they have two dollar and teams in they're probably saying good success in other areas. Yeah. Ah Let. Me Tell you where I have a problem with because ultimately I think I leaned closer to you. My problem is not that they didn't consult with the Players Association. 'cause consulting means a conversation. Right? My problem is if there was no heads up given because it's not like this is in the off season of blast there in the middle of the event, right? They are still in the tournament mode four like the main blast that will eventually lead to like their big major, right For blast. That's where I have the issue because if you're if you're changing the prize pool mid tournament and not giving them a heads up I. Understand the reason. Obviously. We don't know all the numbers, but all we constantly hear about. How you know the tournament organizers make barely any money and the owners encounter strike especially, pretty much lose money. Right. Having a counter strike team. And yet. Always see from these players are Gucci watches you know Yeezy. Right like they're doing pretty okay. Not Every player I understand that. But for the most part, they're doing pretty okay with their salaries. Heard. From counterstrike pros saying that they won't go to events unless they're staying five star hotels for the most part like the best of the best tower tournament organizers where the. Name anything here but there's a place will say locally where I'm not even kidding you next door, there is a walkway, a covered walkway that leads from the hotel to the place where they were having the event and the players didn't want to stay at the hotel because it wasn't nice enough and this hotel is a Sheridan. It wasn't like a king to know knock on. Lucina. It's a shared. Sakes. Like. Four Star Hotel Four Seasons or anything but. Still pretty good and they wouldn't do it. So then the tournament organizers had to switch the hotel, right? The players went there and said, nope, this isn't up to our standards then switched the hotels and everything here like don't get it twisted. And it's actress counterstrike I'd say most East sports athletes. For being guys that like have very minimum requirements to get by in life like I've seen your room behind your Webcam right we know how some of these guys live they have very high standards when it comes to like pampering them. So No, I think for blast to take a conscious stand and be like we can't survive doing this. Let me ask the players this would you rather have more prize money? Or. Would you rather have? Would you rather have more prize money and blast fold after this because they can't afford To recoup or would you rather have? A reputable event. In blast payout a little less give your or more money to hopefully that will come back to you in some way and then being able to continue because right now that's the only option you have chances are that money is not going back to them in some way though right like. Chances are the orange will pocket money or use it for their expenses that even if? Up The fridge some you out. You know we upgrade the stream room for you guys our facilitation. Pull a microphone get you that private jet.

How the Gates Foundations values shape the world
"This week we've been talking with Bill Gates copy of the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is trying to eradicate polio and malaria globally gates created a billion dollar climate investment fund. He has funded multiple factories to find a vaccine for Covid nineteen and the foundation is matchmaking companies around the world to get that vaccine distributed. Gate. Doesn't the position to do all of this because he's one of the world's richest people because he co-founded Microsoft and to be honest that's a little weird. So in part three here I asked Bill Gates how his philanthropy ends up doing. So much of the work of government he said some of it is mission creep take malaria. When we started out, we mostly thought that we would just increase the arm de because. You know for malaria, the people who die which at that time was over a million children a year they don't have enough money to have a voice in the marketplace. So there was no. Science, or willingness to fund on their behalf in a capitalistic system. And there was a little bit of foreign aid but much. So we came in, is the the biggest player in Malaria Ding. At first, I thought our role would just be to create the drugs and the nats. And that we weren't mean to fund the actual delivery side. Because once we have the tools. The uptake would be there in fact, it turned out that. It was much harder to. Have things delivered than we expected. So we were CO founder the Global Fund. Goes after three diseases HIV to Berkeley similar, and we were a founder of this Kavi organization that buys vaccines for the poor countries at the very lowest prices, and so those two institutions which we did in our first two years of existence to learn about delivery so far actually they've probably been the most impactful thing we've done. The R. D. promises to give us some amazing things including the tools that will help ascent malaria and. Make incredible progress on issues but the delivery side I underestimated how hard it was and how we would have to partner up to figure out what kind of axiom would be acceptable. What kind of medical intervention you know even how do you tell people that they really need to sleep under that bed net and that feeds back to the design of the product? Because you're a partner in the delivering, you see what's not working and we thought we could get women to take a daily pill. For, HIV prevention. And the uptake on that very very low, and so now we're working on something that you'd only have to take either a shot or a pill every ninety days because it looks like that would get uptake, but you're driven by the limitations of of uptake, and so that's why we've got to be deeply involved not just in rnd, but also the delivery side at what point do your priorities, the priorities of the foundation end up becoming the priorities for the world, and you've described a sort of a series of unintended consequences that pull you in deeper and deeper to. Ultimately, the work of governments in no case should countries depend on our philanthropy or any other philanthropy to solve a basic need? We can accelerate the RND and so yes, by spending money on malaria supposed to. Some. Fancy. Vacation or something. Yes. The world's resources are going more into malaria now than they did before and those million deaths are now down four, hundred thousand and so yes our values to change what gets funded in this economy and malaria just. was in my view grossly underfunded. You said it was either like it could be either malaria or a luxury. Good. But there's like a lot in between there and do you ever think maybe I. Should Turn My Lens on disinformation or wealth inequality or racism in the United States. Well we spend. We have two big things. We do one of inequity in the US, which is lot about education, and then there's global health I do believe you really have to focus and become expert. We're basically saving a life for less than a thousand dollars per life saved. These miraculous interventions in other fields. People have brackets interventions through the giving pledge. Make sure lots of plant perceived these high impact things some problems. Government's spending way more than plant. Can haven't been able to solve. So mostly flat becomes up with pilots pilots. Of a mentoring program pilots of. How schools could organize a bit differently. So we do a Lotta that but once we've committed to Milorad occasion we're not going to abandon that. Sadly, there's very few fields where you can save millions of lives for small sums of money. Bill Gates is Co Chair of the Gates Foundation.
U.S. Agency Urges End To Below-Minimum Wage For Workers With Disabilities
"So for eighty two years American labor law has had a carve out for some workers with disabilities they paid less than minimum wage. This was meant to encourage employment of more people today a top federal civil rights watchdog says the exemption should end because it's been trapping workers in job programs they call exploitative and discriminatory NPR's Lena Seljuk reports. Jerry. Douglas Dino had a job but couldn't afford a few things he wanted to do like go out to eat sometimes. Vase Goto events. He was working alongside other people with disabilities at a center in Rhode. Island. Doing what he calls bench work road tasks like fitting rings into heating tubes packaging ice packs assembling boxes for jewellery. If I remember correctly by I by first paycheck was only twelve bucks I just cautioned myself as you know. I really don't WanNa keep doing what my whole life Doug AC- now works at a supermarket where his paycheck is a lot more than twelve dollars total but he spent years in that center which made him below minimum wage. Thanks to that carve out in the labor law centers like that are often called sheltered workshops because they keep people with disabilities a separate cluster their pay is estimated to average three dollars and thirty four cents an hour to calculate individual pay. The centers regularly time their workers comparing how fast they do tasks to inexperienced non-disabled worker half as fast half the pay. Now, the US Commission on Civil Rights says this program and the law should be phased out in short the program doesn't work and it is designed in a way that it can't work Kathryn Lehman chairs the commission she says instead of expanding opportunities, the programs limit them don't really prepare people for work in the community jobs with rights wages I was. I was ashamed of the ways that we have operated. Now over a decades, a federal assumption that people with disabilities are less capable. Full employment than people without disabilities, a lot of data are missing about sub minimum wage programs including how many people they employ estimates range from one hundred, thousand to four times that most have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Commonly, the programs run by nonprofits, they get state and federal money to support these jobs many of them have government. And their most vocal supporters are some of the workers families who won the programs to remain an option a safe environment for relatives with disabilities. One mother Linda how from Wisconsin testified before the Civil Rights Commission in November we are parents with our son's best interest at heart. And you suggestion that we would allow him to be taken. Advantage of are discriminated against is an insult families like hers helped workshops flood the commission with a record number of comments asking to lead the programs be some described workers with quote severe disabilities worried about where they go Lehman says, that is why her agency is recommending a careful gradual phase out disability rights advocates have wanted such A. Phase. Out For years the point to success stories of people thriving outside of the systems that underestimated them, and you'll Lewis fights against sheltered workshops at the National Federation of the blind testified about his past work running one thinking he was doing the right thing and because misguided compassion these individuals spend significant part of their lives wasting away in that workshop making money for our center but wasting away. And I am sitting here. Really feeling sad about what I perpetuated because there is a better alternative four states have abolished sheltered workshops to support more jobs in the community. Seven states have moved to end wages below the minimum several federal bills trying to do so on a national level have so far failed. Alina. So you NPR, news Washington.
Trends That are Changing AI Hardware and Software - with Marshall Choy of SambaNova
"So Marshall Glad to have you back on with us today, you guys have made some great headway in the last year or so since I had you back on the program and I know today, we want to talk a little bit about trends. You've seen in AI hardware. You guys obviously have finger on the pulse here you raise a lot of money got some of the sharpest focusing industry when you look at what are the trends moving dollars. Moving the smartest technical in this world of AI hardware how do you like identify those are the big ones for you. Thanks for having me on Dan requests. He again, there's a number translator going on in the space day and We've kind of narrowed down on really the three most prevalent trends were seeing to our interactions with customers now in the market and really using our view, these trends kind of inform our internal thinking in our our development processes and so first and foremost. I think you know nobody's probably better qualified to declare this. First friend is our CO founder and chief technologist Kounellis Colton. who was the father of multiple? End. His declarations been the multi processing is kind of reducing in its utility in coming to an end of life as a result of the slowdown things like Moore's Law Dennard scaling. So if you look at a lot of people in the space, they're continuing to build A. Systems processors based on a on a core base approach. As cores themselves become less and less effective, inefficient, just putting more more course together multi courtship minimal ecosystem only fields you in an even more inefficient system, and so what you need is something it's going to be more flexible and more performance than the core approach and so on. This, you know we'll. Just for a second year, Marshall I'm aware that you guys spend a lot of time in the nitty gritty hardware, a lot of our audience they're going to be you know our head of compliance at a bank or head of innovation at our ECOMMERCE. They probably understand you know coors at a very conceptual level like, oh, yeah. Intel has those you know something like that. Yeah. But even for me understanding core and multi-core at a conceptual level defining that, and then I guess contrasting it with with what could be would you mind to finding those churches? The folks at home can kind of imagine this? Yeah, I mean think of it this way right I mean in the past with with. Transactional processing computing core banking taxation like that people assembled systems with many cores were. Had fixed functions and usages for those specific software operators. With machine learning and ai the whole software development and delivery model has changed in acquired a whole different type of computational capability, and what that requires is the ability to have a much more flexible silicon infrastructure to run the applications to effectively provide the software, what it wants needs to do data flow execution operation. So that's really kind of the core difference here. Is really being driven by the software, which is mandating the needs for different types of infrastructure. Why do cores ORC with? Let's say software as it was you know, let's just think of whatever kind of software we want. We want to imagine wise a core suited for kind of traditional it traditional software I. Know You made the contrast with machine learning, but I'd be interested in yeah. Yeah I mean traditional computing is the Very predictable and in in deterministic in nature, it's all about calculating to the degree of accuracy. For example, if you're trying to calculate someone's bank account statement, want that to be you know too many many. Ratchet. As opposed to nation and so with a core approach in a traditional compute approach, you affectively hard code in these functions. Antics of these, you know well known operators that are GonNa be used the software.

How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

Voice and Podcasts with the Dynamic Duo: Kane Simms and Dustin Coates
"So background if you go back far enough used to. Say I to produce music. But the reality is I was a kid in my bedroom, filling around samples and make some Junes and writing lyrics. So they used think the funds myself as a bit of a wrapper. and. If you look back at some podcast episodes. Complete row. I think a little bit rusty other minute. Did do one for Frank Schneider of speakeasy. and. So He's Best I'LL PHILADELPHIA. So when we introduced him on the podcast did version of the fresh prince of bel-air theme tune with Franck Schneider. So they going to know So of caught a long relationship with audio and woods essentially audio together and important words into it ended up realizing the making music it is not easy to make money from. And etc. Went throughout my career ended up in marketing agencies ended up in user experience design. Consultancy Service designed eventually managing digital service transmission teams and then out freelance writing on the side as also had kept up the right and stuff, and then all of a sudden not come across. I think it was an adver around the launch of Alexa in the UK. Fiddle around with Siri, but it was reuben time in submitting bothered with it. But I see in this advert for Alexa launched in the UK and I was thinking lot seems crazy that I didn't know anything about I. Didn't know you could build for. I. Didn't know that you create anything for it. I didn't have a clue about and just thought when I see now thought wouldn't it be good if you could create something for much and if you could actually design like an old your based conversation, best experience that people could have with this thing and immediately I thought that sounds fantastic and Few monthly God device etc Pierre Around it and I thought to myself I. Think. It'd be good to try and learn really well how these things were technology is what hangs together how the build Sephora and then similar justin really start thinking about how we do that and I thought one of the best ways to learn about an audio I medium will be to create an audio I kind of piece of content, and if I'm going to learn about then a ms well share that with everyone else who might want to learn about it and so that was how the world was the podcast was born. The demand demand name in two thousand, seventeen couldn't find anybody to interview for any kind of cost couldn't come across anyone all just maybe I wasn't right using the the pro search phrases because I didn't i. Didn't quite come across y'all content that's I'm and then eventually in November of twenty seventeen. I realize that the voice book podcasters around and this week in voice podcast was around those thinking what the Hell's going on like I had this idea months ago. What's in a thought? Well, lots of evidence basically the the something that there must be something that most people are confined to speak to that was in the US, convinced that it was going to come to Europe and so that's what was not doing not like research in China in touch with trying to meet people's to flat out recorded a couple of the episodes over Christmas. The first episode might even still be on Youtube. It said, I've got my garland hanging on the the fireplace damning. And then was just about to launch I. Think Miami might have even put one episode out on immediately someone commented on twitter and said, Hey, you know that was really good. But what would be really interesting would be if there was some kind of person around the hard technical knowledge someone that could cause for me I'm astrologist in the design and always been the design of always gaping on the condor like the creative end, the Kinda strategic, figuring out what it is, we should be doing and then managing the team that kind of goes ahead and does it all during the design myself and stuff and then I. It was the on Conan I. Think he said, are you going to get into any technical content? Is that I love to I don't really have the technical background myself. Exactly. That's right. That's exactly that was young. Yeah, and then you've sent a tweet us in. You responded I think it was it was a tweet or you direct message right now I think it was on I think it was a tweet i. Very very rarely on twitter. So if you look at our different social media's canes, the Social Media Social Butterfly me, I can take it or leave it but I just happened to be there is a one day voice conference at Paris a day just happened to be on twitter following along and I saw that and I think I replied I was like Hey let's try I. do it yeah. I don't think literally within the space of. Our can probably seven days later, we recorded an episode episode four or five or something. And that was the beginning we did. We've done ever since and we've kind of as I said, the first six months foucault was doing the podcast and then we got speaking engagements and hosting conferences and events to flat now, and then twenty nineteen start getting involved in workshops training consultancy. We picked up Kanda design development projects, and still like out and then yeah, it's been more of the same of US insights Crazy. So Sir Tippety. Dustin winter. saw. Replied in a super successful podcasting percocet came out of that. People don't realize it took US two years I think two years right canes actually meet in person it wasn't until two last summer I happen to the giving a talk in London and came down. So there's the you X. Trivia for you. To Gain Dustin podcast together to. Not, each. Other. Exactly. Not just poke. We've been working together. You know it's like it's crazy how you know how I don't think we understand people don't really I. Think we take for granted the Internet basically is trying to say you don't realize the power that the house you know imagine being able to create a company with someone who you've never actually met in. Real life and work together, and you know build up that kind of relationship over two years without even an oxygen meeting is i. think is absolutely unbelievable. Crazy. It is amazing. You might think of this time of turn cove. It is all of a sudden working remotely I think more and more that's going to happen right where people are getting super comfortable. Where come outlay you were working with someone in completely different areas will be different times on different countries. All works. Great. So I see that little bit we kind of accelerated the future of work. Unfortunate events that that happened to us.
Mars in Opposition
"Wadham to astronomy, cast our weekly facts based journey through the cosmos where we help you understand not only what we know. But how we know what we know I'm Fraser Cain publisher, of Universe today and with me as always Dr Pamela Gay a senior scientist for the Planetary Science Institute and the Director of Cosmic Quest Pamela. Welcome back from Summer Hiatus I missed you. Thank you. I've missed you too although I have to say it feels like we're like experiencing march. Two. Hundred instead of September at this point time has meaning it doesn't it really has no meaning. Yeah. Yeah. It's a it's a it's a snake in a circle eating its own tail. Made of everything nothing at the same time. I don't know whether I'm coming or going. The days just blur and yet time just takes forever. When do I get my vaccination? You are you are you on I was thinking about this really want to do what I want to go places and see people. That's what I do. To to have gone from having that amazing experience in January where we were together in Hawaii for the W. S meeting. And towards the end of that meeting, we were starting to talk about the news about this strange illness in China and remember the Thursday night on. Talking with a couple of my friends at the conference about. Just want to get home before the illness makes it to Hawaii. And I had no idea that. Nine mice be earlier. Still Yeah, no I guy I had my suspicions but. In. And now I you know we do feel like we're closing in now on the final stretch that more and more vaccines are coming into into the final stage of trials, and there's going to be some kind of roll out but I really hope that that herd immunity will start to get kicked in and we can start to see the end of this hopefully during this season. So we will we will and herd immunity from. Thanks. From getting sick. So we will. Exceed the end of it during the season and. Regular life will return. This season fourteen, our show is major and I feel that having a very cranky year is consistent with going through our teenage ness. Thank you bye-bye. Now this is. All right, every two years or so Mars lines up nicely with the earth it takes only two minutes to communicate with the Rovers. You could see the polar ice caps in a small telescope and it's the best time to send your spacecraft to the Red Planet and also I. Guess. It Mars opposition. Between Your horoscope your Mars horoscope is really good that other works. Maybe, that's Mars in retrograde. That none lucky time. They can happen at the same time whereas in retrograde and an opposition. Yeah. That's true. All right. So so so we're going to talk about how Mars and opposition is a really like the best time for Mars that's Mars really takes over the night sky and shows us what it's got but. Why is Marzano Position? So technically, it is that moment in time when you have the sun, the earth and Mars precisely lined up so that at midnight on earth. Mars is at its highest possible point in our terrestrial sky and if you were to look at it from space. Walk. Would they look from above you're looking down on the solar system and you're looking at? Earth Mars and the sun what would you see? Align they're just nicely in a line. And There's some years where because Mars orbit is a lot more elliptical than earth orbit that we are noticeably closer. There's some years that were noticeably farther apart of back in two thousand and three. There's a lot of Hoopla because we were than. We'd been in hundreds of years would be for another hundred some odd year. He was fifty thousand years was the closest yet had been. Two Thousand and three. And at these closest points, we are more than twenty million miles closer than we are during opposition when Mars is at its far points. So there is a substantial difference, but in the grand scheme of things. Mars is still smaller than allows to see it as a desk without. Really good binoculars or a telescope. So but just to give just to give people a sense of perspective, I mentioned this the beginning of the show it takes two light minutes to communicate with Mars just over two minutes right now we'll win Mars you not position until you can. You know you send your beep boop commands to your over and you're over goes beep boop and sends back it's commands and it's just like you're playing a video game with. Fairly reasonable times, but when Mars is. Old Dial up modem exactly. An Internet game what it gets worse right on average the a the time to transmit to Mars is about twelve and a half minutes and at the very worst when Mars is on the opposite side of the Sun It's twenty minutes. So if you want to send some piece of information to Mars, you've got to wait twenty minutes for the message to get there and then twenty minutes to come back. So. The distances are really significant.

"Back to the first week of October. The trump administration blacklisted eight Chinese technology companies companies. whose technology which often contains parts from American suppliers? There's was technology that helped the Chinese government track and target Muslim leaguers in western China the sanctions are meant to cut the Chinese companies off from their American supply. Chain which of course force could also hurt that American supply chain but as marketplace's Scott Tong reports the sanctions don't really seem to be working at least not yet. A key to China Ernest surveillance system is facial recognition technology which I tried out. I uploaded my photo to a Chinese facial recognition website which offers a demo to showoff the technology and instantly. My face became one hundred data. Points for instance. My lower middle knows. Dimensions are three hundred and fifty nine units by three three hundred forty eight units these measurements add up to a unique face print. which in China can go into a database basically police contract you across the city eighty just based on your face Charles Rollei reports for the video surveillance website IPM? He says in western China millions of ethnic minority Muslim leaguers. I have their faces. Tracked and compared against databases is one police contract with the Chinese security camera. Company Hike Vision stands out and that contract specified defied that facial recognition cameras will be installed at almost one thousand mosques in just one county. According to human rights groups authorities use real time time facial recognition to detain leaguers deemed security threats an estimated one million acres have reportedly been put into what the government calls reeducation camps. Charles Charles Release as the police have even requested technology to pick out weaker in a crowd they explicitly mandate we ran Olympic. Saying we're going to set up a security camera system and it needs needs to be able to detect whether people are wearing sunglasses. How old they are and whether they are weavers these? Alleged practices led the. US government to blacklist eight Chinese companies including hike vision for human rights violations. The idea is to cut them off from American suppliers that make essential. Semiconductors disk drives. Says Dalia Peterson at the the center. For Strategic and emerging technology at Georgetown Chinese domestic security experts have singled out these parts suppliers so Intel Nvidia media and then Western digital seagate. She says these firms prop up the Chinese surveillance state. As to American pension funds and index funds investing sitting in these Chinese firms Western companies are investors cannot claim denial. They really must take a hard look at what they're doing seagate told marketplace it complies with global laws. Intel's that can't always control how it's chips are used and video said it could not reply in time time and Western digital did not reply but are the US sanctions hurting the targeted Chinese firms. Not really says tech analyst. Dan Wong at Gab. Cal Dragon Reaganomics in Beijing are surviving their share price. The ones that are publicly traded barely taken a dip.

"In the straight up statistical motivation for this next story was a report from the commerce. I department this morning. That consumer spending rose four tenths of one percent last month. That is good for reasons suburban About to explain. But it's also a data point on an economic continuum if you will because what's happening now has to be compared to what happened in this economy in the past and how it might affect the future that is I grant you Ted high-concept but Sabrina bail me out. If we are what we eat then our economy is what we spend. Well basically holding up our economy take a couple of years get Yaro is a consumer psychologist and author of decoding. The new consumer mind consumer spending always a massive part of the economic health of our country. RETREA consumer spending is just what it sounds like. It's what we spend on everything from toilet paper to cable food to health care in the first quarter this year it was growing at a rate of four point six percent adjusted for inflation and the second quarter went down to three point two percent and so far this quarter. It's down to two point two percent growth. That's not bad. Consumer spending is increasing at a pretty solid rate. However it's slowing down from the pace during the middle part of Twenty Nineteen James Bond is an economist with HSA AHL market? People were excited earlier. This year we were coming off a lousy end to twenty eighteen. The stock market was looking up. The employment rate was getting better and better. Those fundamentals are still in place. Where did you see that consumers at this point a year taking a little bit of a breather that does not mean that we are going to have a bad holiday spending season on the contrary things are looking Jeff? Scott Brown is chief economist at Raymond. James Yeah the overall trend here is still pretty promising We're looking consumer spending being driven by job growth and And wage growth and those trends are likely to continue into at least in the first half twenty twenty spend away fellow consumers spend away in New York. I'm Sabri Benesch. You're for marketplace gathering. I were talking about the tax law a couple of minutes ago. Here's another angle. The House voted yesterday to roll back part of it specifically the ten thousand thousand dollar cap on state and local tax deductions salt. They're called shorthand. The new bill would temporarily ditch the limits that the law imposed on the dollar amount of those payments ayments that people can deduct from their federal income taxes. And yes no. I know the chances this thing passes the Senate or slim to less than zero. But it's a window into the affect the laws had on one corner of this economy. Real Estate Marketplace's. Amy Scott is on in Affluent Montclair New Jersey. The average property tax bill is is more than nineteen thousand dollars. Almost twice the amount homeowners can now deduct I would say it's encouraged a lot of people too especially in the higher end to sell their homes that's broker June regular with the Stanton company all that selling in high tax states like New Jersey and New York and Connecticut has led lead to a glut of expensive homes says Lawrence Yun Chief Economist with the National Association of Realtors while the buyer perspective they are willing to only only make a bid at a very big discount. Union says that's one reason prices have been growing more slowly and even declined in some places at the high. The end of the market and that price competition has filtered down to the medium high end which means that it is leading to the wealth reduction for the people who may be in the middle income bracket. It's too early to know the long term effect of all this. The cap only kicked in last year and Kim Reuben with Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center says the majority of taxpayers still came out ahead even for people who are limited in their deduction. There are other things that went on with a tax law that lowered their overall burden. Realtors say State Flake Tennessee. Florida and Texas. Have come out ahead to attracting new residents residents with their lower taxes. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace.

"No I know it's not technically the end of the year yet still. We're going to take a look back from American public media this. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is Friday today the twentieth twentieth of December. Good as always have along. Everybody so look. Here is my working hypothesis. This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic. Just the two of us all right so look. Let's do. Let's do this first of all. I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing president Finally in super-quick. What do you think of my premise? That we're going to take two weeks and everybody's GonNa go away and then we're GONNA have two more weeks of impeachment and then finally Mila January people are GonNa tuned back in again. I hope you're right that we have two weeks where everyone gets to go away. That's where I think your your Prediction may be most suspect. Be some middle of the night tweets. Well Yeah Probably Catherine Bell Washington Post. Thank you Catherine. Thanks have a nice weekend on Wall Street late on a Friday and December or on a Friday in late December.

"Thank you are a so there is the fact that news is important uh there is also another fact that news is influential right so if facebook his his off the news industry do you think that let's let's pretend that everybody acts in their most cynical way possible right let's just assume that would be the way the world worked if facebook or to screw the news and issue of the news in a studio you would see an uptick in stories on i dunno antitrust regulation right you'd see a whole bunch of extra investigations into i dunno mark zuckerberg financial arrangements that had interesting things in them you would see a whole lot of stories about why facebook should may be be regulated more aggressively right so part of what facebook fears is the power of the news and if you're right this is one of the teams like one of the subthemes the story was the relationship between facebook and corp right because newscorp and rupert murdoch and robert thompson had been hitting facebook harder than anybody else in the publishing industry in a way that like they have whether it's courage craziness like they're going hard after facebook into one of the scenes that fred and i reported that had been reported before is that the summer sixteen you know murdoch an thompson basically go to villa at the her ballan conference with sandberg zuckerberg dan rose and her like you guys are destroying the industry and we're gonna come after you and what murdoch and thompson mean is that you know we're going to use our power to lobby congress not our journalist but our executive power with facebook here's is murdoch's can use his media empire against us right and facebook knows that murdoch has a lot power because they believe that in two thousand seventy basically launched a pedophilia investigation to facebook in order to help my space which is another wonderful detail that fred and i found in the course of our reporting so is under burke is scared of the power of murdoch and murdoch plays hardball and so going back to regional question why don't they just dump like why don't they just dump all of murdoch's properties i don't know what what murdoch do right so i think zachert even again most cynical possible interpretation and i'm not that cynical about face but but even if you were take that interpretation there's a good reason to.

"We needed to flip them so that we wouldn't head down the pariah path at uber was odd lose his love lovely were this and so then you're soon after zaghreb mix that comment he starts to reverse he put something on facebook's actually no fake news syria still we're going to deal with it so then they start algorithm leona fake news they're pretty quickly able to reduce it substantially right they reduce the ability of the people who create to make money off of ads and make it easier to identify it then over the next year there are bunch more algren the change is one thing i didn't put it in the story but they create one of the levers that goes into newsfeed is that if the word snow pse appears in the comments it then gets flagged as potentially fake news well super interesting right in the probably like a hundred different things that they put in to the whole super factors i didn't like i couldn't put that one thing in because i didn't have like the other ninety nine i wish i did but i don't so there's a whole bunch of factors that they put into determine whether something so that's kind of the beginning but why what they've done in recent weeks which is even more interesting is they've started to wait things more heavily to us they called trust a publishers so they asked their readers do you trust the site not trust the site the gonna start um you know wayne things based on informing this i think right they're gonna give reader surveys and ask people do you know about the news like are you educated on the news and then the look at what they've read rights if they read lots of wired and they're informed the up vote wiretowire who get like a better ranking so those of you listening to this podcast he shared things on facebook if you're ever given a survey please get the questions rights willie yeah so they're doing that and they're also i think what they're essentially trying to do is come up with different ways to push not just the fake stuff but the kinda like lame crazy partisan stuff out and click beatty stuff too and click beatty snapchat as my hope facebook has had a lot of interesting responses to what type.

"But has shifted toward doing now because your your story lays out this sort of great um transition between right after the election where zucker berg and his a cadre facebook were saying it's ridiculous that you would think face fake news on facebook contributed to the outcome in the election and then there's this sort of moment of reckoning where they're like wall me be we had something to do with it and let's investigate and then that sort of shifts into this outright war on fake news on facebook and elsewhere on the internet so like talk a little bit about what facebook has sort of shifted toward doing and what they're up to now so there's this amazing moment the election happens and i spent a lot of time drug report the exact details of the election happens facebook as you stand like you know they're all hillary supporters to repeat deal listen um and they're shocked and right knee sheryl sandberg might have been sector the treasury red like they're all their their lives it just turned upside down and so in the days afterwards you know they're all these people running back and forth between san bricks conference rooms are birch conference room you know and then somebody on the new cdm or trat emissary like does a calculation on the amount of like fake news that was on the platform and it's a small number and zuckerberg loves numbers he looks to the numbers as okay so he goes knows an interview david kirkpatrick and he says just what you said like daddy is crazy meanwhile back at facebook all the young engineers the people they really don't want to leave to go work at google their snapchat or something are you know freaking out because they think that oh my god fake news did it in a week created donald trump we elected donald trump all that stuff and so zuckerberg after that interview people facebook start to panic one executive said to me are said to me and fred.

"The questions of how danish how do you how do you separate how do you distinguished to readers of people who come to your to spend time in her sight how do you distinguish between a factual news opinion analysis bullshit you all the different things and if tech companies are forced to do those things then what happens to them well they don't grow as quickly i mean what in order day if you if a tech company if facebook where to say we have the same level of obligation to deal with the truth as wire does or some publisher does they would have the higher fifty million people right liked that all the stories like imagine how big their fact checking department would have to be everything they get foot on the platform so they can't do that so what they have to do is higher a lot more people think about the stuff a lot more in tune their algorithms right in a way after the election right after they saw all the craziness with fake news after they saw like all the macedonian teenagers putting up like just straight up malarkey on the internet saying young pope nurses donald trump facebook was kind of able to quash that right and you're able to march that algorithm you can determine that this is a fake publisher in that the story is false and you can look at the way people comment you can allow people to tag what they're a bunch of levers you compress to stop that stuff so they were able to do a good job with that and then of course there's the much messier more complicated area where it's not you know totally fake news made by somebody macedonia but it's you somewhere else on the spectrum between total bs and just kind of bs and that require humans it requires algorithms it requires much more attention yeah well let's talk a little bit about let face.
