For nineteen years he was a CO founder and the CEO of site tuners, tuners dot, com and their digital marketing and optimization agency. Tim has helped create over one point, two, billion dollars in value for some amazing companies that I know. We all know Google expedia harmony facebook and American Express and cannon and Nestle there's massive list year semantic new to it and humanity Siemens anyways in countless direct to consumer brands. So exciting to have Tim today busy schedule. But please join me conversation with Tim Today. So. Tim Welcome ECOMMERCE battling. A Ha-. Very. Happy Veer Steve. So you've had quite an eventful career I might add keynote speaking around the world are writing bestselling books year you run international conferences, I guess pre cove in our doing some virtual events. So tell me a little bit about best can your entrepreneurial journey so far? Sure. Well, I've worked in a variety of high tech companies when I started university at UC San Diego my undergraduate majors were in computer engineering and cognitive science, and then I stayed there for graduate school and what would neural networks or what would now be called deep learning or machine learning or A. And this was early days We didn't have the big data sets that we do now with the Internet. So I switched Internet marketing and started my first marketing agency back in the early DOT com days and Never, let go of the Tiger's tail and twenty five years. Later I decided you know running an agency wasn't my highest and best use on the planet. So I decided to focus on what I really enjoy, which is the thought leadership in the form of as you mentioned, keynote speaking and writing my latest book and spreading knowledge out to people as opposed to working on client accounts. Right? and. So I did mention a little tiny bit of top of the show but you know you've worked with a lot of some really great ecommerce brands some of the largest brands I might add like what are some mistakes that you see kind of consistently some of these e commerce brands are making today will if we restrict people have different definitions of ECOMMERCE, I, just WanNa start there for some ecommerce anywhere. Any website that has as A. Checkout anything where you sell items directly and for others, it's more restrictive and I'd say it's a e commerce catalog and that's I think a more standard definition. If you also use a lots of different items, you have a homepage category pages, search results, pages, and product, and so on. It's not a website where there are two or three things for sale in those early incidental. Would I don't know is that a fair definition or how would you agree with that? Totally would agree with that yes. So In the case of large catalogs, I'd say the common mistakes that we I've seen in my careers one gratuitous use of motion and wasted real estate on the homepage in the form of giant sliders everybody seems to have those Sh. Yeah. That's a big known my book I talk about I have a whole e-commerce best practices section in my landing page optimization book and I devoted a page to why sliders. An evil that should be immediately removed from your site. While you know what part of it I think to is that it doesn't position the brand well, enough I think with having like motion and I think when people have a lot of different slogans, tag lines or kind of looks and things going out other different sections on the site they think they're trying to blast all of their bullets out on this highly sought after a piece of real estate versus maybe having a proper positioning statement or something. One thing that's very important. That's key to why someone should click. Through or why someone shown up on this particular website having one message and one brand image and go further than that I, would say that I'll numerate the reasons why you shouldn't have a slider on your homepage. The one that you mentioned is by far the most important our brains from an evolutionary perspective are designed to notice things moving in are visual field. It kind of has survival value. If you know what I mean here is coming to eat me I need to know what direction and how big is right So. they're they're an interrupt, their the nuclear option in the face of motion graphics won't get looked at and even in the face of graphics, text won't get read. So anything that's graphics or text on your site can't possibly compete with that atomic bomb of a slider on your homepage. And and another reason that really bad is because it's trying to pretend you have more real estate than you really do. So everybody wants a piece of the homepage and lurk. We can add another frame tour slider. Well Great. Thanks. So now have to sit through a longer commercial nobody likes to do that on broadcast TV. There's certainly don't have the attention span to sit through five three seconds sliders to make sure they saw every frame of the crap you're trying to throw them on your home page You don't really an editorial problem. You can't decide what's important. So you're trying to cram it all in there and make everybody happy except your site visitors that are trying to give you money,

The new message goes on to say the CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of the virus wants this process has been completed. The updated language will be posted Covert 19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person to person and droplets rather than aerosols. Dr. Kim Prather, director of the National Science Foundation Center for Aerosol Implants on Chemistry of the Environment at UC San Diego, says the difference between aerosol and a droplet is significant. Basically, the difference is just that the aerosols or the sort of really tiny little droplets to come out. As opposed to sort of coming out When you cough for you sneeze, they come out when you talk and when you sing, and so they're super tiny, and they're miserable. You can't really see them.

Q. neighborhood in Santa Rosa killed more than two dozen people were just not we're seeing we're seeing fires but they are not doing the same scale of damage that's not to say that they're not doing some damage the people have people have lost homes showed that heart wrenching thing to go through it but again just not on that huge scale towards and it's not because these fires are hitting the same areas and there's nothing left to burn that's not the case right no in fact in terms of the can keep fire one of the things that I was told was that in some ways the fire was filling in areas that had burned repeatedly so some of them are starting in the same general area but it's not like they're on top of the the the buyer or the campfire burned or anything like that so what are some folks point to here in terms of lessons from the past well good to start with the experience a lot of people say you know California firefighters they are constantly dealing with these wildfires they are just crawling on drawing on previous experience cute to go after these things and you can look at at a fire fighting it can be like the one in Contra Costa or the one in Vallejo where they've they've learned that you know in red flag whether the need to pre position so a red flag warning will come up and a red flag is what you have you know high winds and low humidity and essentially big fuel load up lots of things that might be able to burn a fire to be likely so don't don't yeah extra engine to add an extra ladder trucks add prepare those resources and then make sure that they have the firefighters available to you take take those recorded out when needed and so the other day one Contra Costa was under a red flag to be fought like eat fire in in a fifteen hour period and they drew heavily on those pre positioned resources while speaking with Erin L. worse disaster reporter at the Wall Street journal teacher in a piece entitled California relies on planes and lessons from the past to prevent deadly blaze as well so they point to here what do we actually kind of cool stuff happening you have been I'll call it a consortium of firefighting agencies and mark Porsche other California counties who have started to rely on the line I'm pretty advanced technology bear in the supercomputer that in house at UC San Diego and the super computer it's called wife higher it it basically is a modeling program and it will take real time weather data known fire corridors and then a bunch of other information and add two one eight by your store like say the Getty fire in LA firefighters will pop what they know about that fire into into the modeling program and why fire will essentially it out predictions about what the fire might do you thanks Erin Erin feel worse disaster reporter at the Wall
Ghost crabs 'growl' from their stomachs, scientists find
"Ghost crabs us aren't ghosts but they are ghost like partly because of their Pale coloring and partly because like a vengeful spirit trapped in your walk in closet they they want you to get out. They can't whale like actual ghosts but but when scientists studied the way that goes crabs communicate when threatened they did hear something surprising. Professor Maya degrees was part of the team at the Scripps Institution of oceanography that discovered the ghost crabs secret Britt noisy weapon. We reached her in Sea Ranch California professor degrees. What did you uncover about. These unusual sounds that the ghost crabs make right so it was really interesting in the lab. We noticed that they were making the same sounds with another. They're part of their body than their claws and a lot of crustaceans. Make these really neat. Strangulation sounds or grinding sounds that are really important for their behavior h-have yer but we heard it coming from another part of the body which was very intriguing before we find out what part of the body's doing let's hear a bit of the sound that you have recorded a growling crabs okay. That's the sound Dallas would that is great so it sounds like a scraping sound as you could tell when a two body parts scraped together and what we found is that it was actually coming from the stomach so what the animals have is a gastric mill which is basically thickly what they use to grind food in their stomachs. It's a set of teeth basically in the stomach and they can chew up food that way but we learned that they can also also make these sounds that sounds strikingly similar to the sounds that they make with their claws. Do all crabs have these grinding mills in their guts. Yes all crustaceans nations that we know of these gastric males or yeah grinding apparatus says it's pretty crazy but did you know of any that actually used the grinding mill to nor to make a sound. That's nothing to do with digesting food. nope this is the first example of really any animal making sounds communication with their stomachs. As far as we know when he first identified this sounds you could see that they weren't doing it with their claws. What did you think was going on yeah. It was really neat. The lead author of the Study Jennifer Taylor had actually brought out these animals into the lab for another study she was going to look at how they behave antagonistically to each other but then she noticed that they were making in kind of classic sound not with their claws and she got very curious and kind of brought the rest of the team to kind of figure out where the sound is coming from what what did you do in order to figure it out. I we used a laser doppler vibe Rahmatullah which is basically vibration sensing lasers to able to pinpoint where in the body the sounds coming from so that told us that the sound was coming from the body cavity probably this gastric mill but we need his see the gastric mill actually moving at the same time that the sound was being produced and that's actually really tricky to jail in bigger crowds. You can stick like an endoscope down L. Nancy the gastric mill moving but these are really small crabs kind of the size of your hand and when they make the sound they're moving around a lot so it's pretty hard to do so we actually teamed up with a group of medical doctors at Uc San Diego Medical Center and we use their radiology technology so basically weekly x Ray imaging to be able to make movies of the animals making the sound while they were moving their gastric. Mill says anyone x ray to grab before as far as you know you know not in this way certainly not with late human technology and medical technology so this is definitely the first time that they had stopped crafts into this machine before but it worked and it was really exciting they make this sound in order to when they're threatened when they're trying to ward off attacks or they're trying to antagonize agonize another another species so what what did you do in order to get them to make the sound they actually do it when they're in tag amazing other individuals from the same they're same species usually and so we actually able to use bodies of dead crabs of the same species and we actually even also so put live crabs in with them but really be able to monitor where they were going and kind of guide the animals were going to be doing these behaviors. Here's we used robotic expert toys and their remote controlled toys and so we were able to remotely control the antagonizing toy to be able to get the crabs to make the

So now we have is in the back country and all around the state that once we get a nine one, one call. We can then hunt for smoke and detect where the fires are.

So this is all part of this discussion, by the way on a clear day visibility sixty to eighty miles up to one hundred thirty miles at night. And Driscoll says that they're used to confirm for the nine one one phone calls nine one one call still beat artificial intelligence machine learning. And so the, the call comes into dispatch, they can then check and confirm the fire, so the witnesses, it makes the phone call. And it's still the most reliable, right? He says, one example was recently in the north bay a man driving a new S one spotted smoke. And he thought it was coming from pine mountain. We checked our cameras on pine mountain. There was no smoke. We jumped over to Jason cameras on geyser peak found the fire called the Coyote fire and we're able to suppress it within an hour. So he cites the deadly campfire. We all know way too much about that. The cedar fire in southern California.

"UC San Diego. Trauma surgeons has number of scooter injuries, increasing really really. Yeah. Oh, yes. I love this. And he's just seeing like just drastic rise in it. Now, the thing about the article that is great all of us are scrambling to find out how big of a public health concern. This is going to be most of the time. They say they were doing something stupid says Dr Kobayashi about fifty percent of the patients that we are testing our intoxicated on either alcohol or other illicit substances substance shocking. This is what happens when you put them in tourist areas, like Santa Monica here or mission beach. Yeah. Da people would go out to the bars. And then go ride the scooters. And then they fall down and go, boom. Yes. And they get an Ouchi. Sometimes they'll be all she so he'll be all she Meru. I know I know. Oh, you can't win on a scooter. That's the whole point of it. That's right. You got to reprogram you. Do Paris is in the news. Now, they were going to find you one hundred fifty dollars for riding a scooter on the sidewalk, and if you park your scooter like poorly, which a lot of people do of the asleep thirty five euro, fine or blessings of God to be covered in dog poop, Harris. Oh my gosh. Sidewalks like the scooters have to be disgusting. I never even thought about that. In San Francisco. They're just covered in man poop. Yeah. Ooh. Ooh, they need a need a scooter wash going around that could be a new business. You just go around, and you know, wash your scooter, sir wash your scooter wash scooter. Yeah. Because they're expecting forty thousand scooters to be in France by the end of the year. Jeez. That's a lot. That's not just Paris, France. And yeah, I was like that's just Paris. That's going to be ridiculous saying that by the end of the year, they want to create twenty five hundred dedicated parking spaces for the scooters. Yeah. The problem is you don't need just dedicated parking spaces, especially in a city like Paris. I don't know the last time you were there Jason. But the the sidewalks are packed like somewhere to ride them. There's you can't ride them on the sidewalks. And you can't ride them on the streets. That's for sure era streets are ridiculous the sidewalks ridiculous. So I don't know. I really don't again it comes back to like, my first argument when these things first appeared in Santa Monica, great idea, we don't have the infrastructure for it. And who's going to build it? And who's gonna pay for it? Yep. Yeah. Who's going to pay for these twenty five hundred dedicated spots. You know, I going with and he's going to do it. Or they'll tax are going to get screwed in down in Texas. The state Senate has filed a Bill that is going to try. And like, basically give some rights back to the cities to say that oh, you know, you have some rights to say what these scooter companies do in your towns, you know, they want to increase the age requirement decide whether a scooter can be parked or ridden like where it can be parked ridden. Penalize people who don't follow the regulations require riders to hold a driver's license and raise the age of the riders. So if you have two things that should have existed in the first place. Yeah. Yep. Not having to people on a scooter and only allow scooters on roads that don't have a bike lane. If the speed limit is under thirty miles an hour. So if if there's no no sidewalk, and you have to ride on the road. But it's a forty mile an hour speed limit. You can't ride a scooter there. They're good. So I mean, it was it.

"Prager. Sandiego union Tribune reports. Today about UC San Diego university of California starts referring to Latinos and Latinos Latino or Latina cts because we don't want to give away gender. Got me make you cave, but he doesn't make you male or female. It is not possible to overstate the damage that the universities are doing to our society because air run by the left, which means they're run, by fools. Not all liberals, were fools. But all leftists are, and they may be nice, by the way in their personal life. Kind generous all good things. Unfortunately, however, that doesn't matter when society. The new California gender recognition act. That's the new California rule. Begins take we'll take affect. January first. So listen to this terms and practices change over time. They love the work change Roddick impulse. Said Dayo f gore. What does day? Do you know? It's an increasing number of names that don't offer any gender. An advance they consider that in advance an ethnic studies. Professor UC San Diego. It doesn't mean that is zero sum game. The important thing is how do we think about the changes you understand what he just said? What does it mean? It's not as zero sum game. Okay. I'm just curious. I I don't understand that either. The important thing is how do we think about the changes? It gives us a chance to be open and speak. This is meaningless. This is this is meaningless words. The union Tribune asked Pettit Pettit is the woman. Becky pettit? I assume she's a woman she's got the name Becky, but you never know anymore. Becky Pettit UC, San Diego's vice chancellor of equity diversity and inclusion you know, how much money they wasted universities, these idiotic positions these destructive chaotic positions. Vice chancellor of equity diversity and inclusion. For those of you who think that the world if it were governed by women would be better just look at the universities as you have more and more of these deans or female, if you think the universities are getting to be more serious intellectual places, then a world governed by women is exactly what you would like. The union Tribune asked Pettit? Whether some people will view words such as Latina as inactive political correctness leading to blowback against the campus. This was her answer. I think the nature of higher education as institutions is to create spaces for resistance. Did you happen to see that? Yeah. You did. You said it got worse and worse. Space. That's the purpose of college to create a space for resistance. Will you what the resistance to what to everything that you hold? Dear. That's what it is. Resistance to western civilization. And for people to redefine themselves. So you there there were three purposes of a college institution, according to Becky Pettit. Who probably six figure income? Pay by my taxes. This is what she thinks the purpose of a university. Is you ready? Create spaces for resistance. For people to redefine themselves and for people to redefine the world. They want to live in. That's it. My friends. That's what that's what Mitch not to pursue truth. It's not to pursue excellence and beauty. It is not to elevate students to become better human beings. Nope. It is to create spaces for resistance for people to refine redefine themselves and redefine the world. They want to live in redefine that's more than fundamentally transform redefine. They are redefining. I don't understand why parents. Parents look most people they don't understand the battle. It's over their head. George H W Bush may he rest in peace didn't understand the battle. Mitt Romney doesn't understand the paddle. John McCain didn't understand the battle. I'm talking about people who were served as president or ran for president. Bob Dole didn't understand the battle. Entire world of never Trump. Republicans doesn't understand the paddle. Their battle is with with Donald Trump not with the people redefining civilization. That's not a big deal. But Trump the way he speaks. That's a big deal. Yeah. So not not not plenty of people are fighting, but not many. Can you say plenty, but not many? That mutually contradictory. Wow. The major of higher education is to create spaces for resistance. These people are bored out of their minds America's so good. They need to find a way to make a niche for themselves.

"Hi, everybody. UC San Diego starts referring to Latinos and Latinos as Latino or Latina a lot of ways of financing and L A X. Less their gender. Be implied. This is a major issue that almost nobody seems to care about. It's not on the radar. When the notion of male and female was being destroyed by the left in the United States. What did what did the media focus on collusion? Alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. See this is what the left does it focuses your attention on non issues while the changes the society radically. It's brilliant. The average the average Republican doesn't even know that this is going on. And it's not just UC San Diego in the in the UC system. That's also UC Irvine. The university of San Diego. That's not UC San Diego university of Santiago holds a Chicano Latino graduation. Why did they have their own graduation? Because dividing Americans by race gender and class is the left wing way of destroying the American identity. American identity is is in any event considered a Nazi term American identity is a dirty word. You are watching an assault on civilization take place and most Republicans, certainly the Bush family is unaware of it. These are good people. Good people and wisdom is not the same thing. They're they're decent. People all over the place. To understand what is happening to your society is not the same as being a loving a person in your private life. They're not generally related. Colleges and universities are among the first places for new words and language to appear. That precise. Let's precisely what's been happening over the past couple of years. UC San Diego. It is no longer uncommon for a person to announce their personal pronouns when they introduce themselves that a meeting, for example, a person might say my pronouns are he him his or she her hers? Or they could ask to simply be referred to as they because their gender identity doesn't neatly match that of a man or a woman. The issue of gender identity has surfaced in the way students apply for undergraduate admission to the university of California system students can now choose from heterosexual slash straight. Bisexual gay and lesbian to describe the sexuality. Why do they even describe their sexuality when they apply? Under gender. They can elect they can select gender non conforming gender. Queer transgender trans man, trans male trans woman, trans female. What is the difference between transplant and trans male? I don't know. Do they making a selection, which is voluntary can be confusing? Some of the terms aren't well known to the general public and some of multiple meanings. The UC says that gender queer refers to a person who's gender identity, and or gender expression falls outside of the dominant social norm of the assigned sex. Sex assigned by nature. Isn't it? Interesting. You hear all the time. Oh, God made me God made me gay. God did not make you mail. God made you k but not male. You see they use language relevant. If the language is true. It's what makes an emotional impact. The new California gender recognition act is likely to make all of these terms. More familiar to a wider audience the act which begins to take effect on January. First will make it easier for people who are transgender non binary or intersex to obtain state issues ID that specify their gender. When we come back. I'm going to read to you, an an ethnic studies. Professor UC San Diego said about the purpose of going to college. Then you'll understand the waste of money that you use when you send your kid to most colleges, especially the UC system. Can they get a good education? Yes, they can. There are a lot of things that are possible in life. Can they also have them the alienated from everything you cherish? Yes. That's that's even more likely. I am sitting on the X chair three one of the most remarkable things I've ever advocated in terms of sponsorship. The X chair is what I sit on. I have like most I think most Americans some back issues. Sitting is the worst thing you can do that. I happen to sit a lot the chair is therefore critically important.

Would like to change his birth certificates date of birth because he feels twenty years younger than he is. Says if you can change the sex on your birth certificate. Why can't you change date of birth on it? I have no answer for it. And that was the point of my column. Theodore dalrymple, brilliant, man. And in perhaps now, I don't think there's a more significant journal in the city journal. There's of course, the Wall Street Journal editorial and opinion pages and the and there's that and there's and there's some great websites. I'm just there are truly brilliant websites. That have great writing in them that are on the right? The thought on the right is so much deeper than the thought on the left. I get all the left stuff. I subscribe at some cost the New York review of books. And I I spoke to you. About the staggering peace. By Yale historian of the holocaust. Comparing our time to the lead up to the holocaust in Germany. That I will not be reading any of his works. Because I just assume he's a fool, and he may have a lot of facts, but I have no desire. If you declare yourself, a fool, I have no desire to review, and there's a lot of competition in holocaust studies, for example, whom I could read, but he turns out. To be a fool. To have. So disgraced his his holocaust work by comparing what is happening in America. Incidentally, I have told you many many times my motto I came up with this in the nineteen eighties. I wrote it being on the left means never having to say, you're sorry. So how exactly did the Democrats win the house of representatives? If if this country has gone through a thorough -tarian, ISM and fascism. See they understand truth is not a left-wing value. So they will say anything they can be effective. Then when attorneys out not to be the case. They don't say, oh, gee, we were wrong. Maybe the country isn't fascist. Maybe the the president has had zero authoritarian tendency. Maybe we have just as much freedom as we did under Barack Obama wouldn't it by the way? That's not true. We have more freedom. The government intervenes and fewer people's lives than the Barack Obama. So that's the irony of that. Or here's another one. This is just been published here in the San Diego union Tribune, which is not known to be conservative newspaper climate contrarian uncover scientific error up ends major ocean. Warming study. Did you hear what I just said? What? The San Diego union Tribune is reporting that one of the biggest arguments for manmade global warming turns out to be a fraud. Inconceivable play that again. Conceivable. Yeah. Oh that can't be high. I thought that the I felt the people who were contrarians with the anti science crowd. This is in yesterday's San Diego. So I guess today's physical papers yesterday today's paper. Researchers with UC San Diego's Scripps institution of oceanography and Princeton University recently walked back. Want that to sink in folks walk back? What is a one word summary for the two words walked back. Retracted. Oh. Scientific findings. Remember something? The left is always wrong. Let's put it this way. The left is always wrong where there is substantial right-wing difference with it. I mean, if a leftist says that gravity causes apples to fall from trees, the leftist is not wrong. But with there is a distinctive leftist position. It is always wrong. And it is always poisonous. But is a force of chaos. You should you should be ashamed of yourself. If you're a leftist, if you're a liberal, you shouldn't be ashamed of yourself. But you should start fighting the left because that's the threat to liberalism. Not not the right. This is I know a revelatory most liberals what the left is a bigger threat to liberalism than than the right? That's correct. That's exactly what Alan Dershowitz says. I don't think he's voted for publican president is life. All right. So researchers UC San Diego's institution of oceanography Princeton, Princeton University recently, walked back scientific findings published last month that showed oceans have been heating up dramatically faster than previously thought. Oh, the headlines on it. It was dominant. It was. Yes. Front page USA today of shores front page, New York Times. Exactly, right. Sure. Was it was a big item on ABC CBS NBC? This is this is his publishing at the San Diego trip released. It look at least it's coming out in a liberal source and not not not a conservative source alone. In a paper published like Tober thirty first in the journal, nature nature is the most prestigious of these journals, researchers found that ocean temperatures at warmed sixty percent more than outlined. This is the original paper and nature is this is the most prestigious science journal. The most prestigious medical journal is a New England Journal of medicine. All right. So just to make things clear researchers found that ocean temperatures warm sixty percent more than outlined by the United Nations had to governmental panel on time of change IPCC. However, the conclusion came under scrutiny after mathematician, Nick Lewis, a critic of the scientific consensus around human induced warming posted a critique of the paper on the blog of Judith curry, another well-known critic wasn't she Georgia. We had her on the show. She's a she's an astronomer was take a look see if I'm right if I'm right if I'm right you owe me Donut. No, you don't care. Why would you get a doughnut? She should a proctology. Climatologist? Okay. That's what I meant. I heard allergist. He was talking to me. I just immediately went to proctology for. No good. I was right. So we we had a run. So the doughnut or not. No, no, no. I don't want to I want you to only one I have no interest in a Donut. Yeah. She's terrific. She is a gutsy climatologist. Yes. Exactly. She, but she's not the university of Georgia anymore. If I'm not mistaken, they make life too tough for you. It is the scientists have been poisoned by the left almost as much as the as so-called social sciences. The conclusion came under scrutiny. Let's have this Nick Lewis on this very big deal. A critic of the folks don't know because e. You rely understandably on mainstream news for you news. You don't know how many scientists do not support the the three prong? Remember, it's three prongs to the to the global warming scenario one the earth is getting very hot too. It is caused overwhelmingly by human beings three. It will lead to an existential crisis of survival for the world, you have to buy all three if you if you differ on one, you're you're you're no longer in the camp of the of the Al Gore world, you're no longer there. Protecting and conserving the earth. The conclusion came under scrutiny after mathematician, Nick Lewis, a critic of the scientific consensus around human induced warming posted a critique of the paper on the blog of Judith curry, the findings of the paper were peer reviewed and published in the world's premier scientific journal and were given wide coverage in the English speaking media Lewis wrote despite this a quick review of the first page of the paper was sufficient to raise doubts as to the accuracy of its results, by the way, forgetting global warming, and the hysteria surrounding that the great that and the Russian collusion that too great left-wing hysteria of the of the contemporary era, and the second is patently ally is pure lie. The first is complex and it borders on lie. But it it is more complex the second is pure lie. We bathe in left wing lies. That's why they keep calling up Donald Trump liar because they throw as much modest possible to have a smokescreen for what they do. Do you? You must understand from this. How much the scientists have been perverted by.

What are you planning to study in college right now, majoring in visual arts and film at UC San Diego. I am thinking about possibly switching to like art, transferring out to NYU or USC or one of those, like more intense film schools when Tsai like finished some of my GE's and stuff. And then hopefully like my dream job is to be a little like travel around the world making like movies, TV shows, commercials, music videos. I really wanna do music videos, but yeah, so we've bonded over the years. Because of your love of film from young age, you were telling me this when I met you pretty much. So I've loved watching the shorts that you've made. What is your favorite project you've directed so far? I have two favorites one. I made my sophomore year. It was a music video was originally to Alonzo Ray song, but I really wanted to set it to festival. So I had my friend who I think assigned to capitol records now I can't tell you who it is, but she ended up making a song a day from an. Within it. Actually, she was the main character. So yeah, it was very beautifully done. My friend Ben, my mentor at the time he directed it. I like kind of helped not really and then like the graffiti and stuff, and it was just like, it's probably the most beautiful piece of thing of ever made in my entire life. So that's why it's like Jose like a special place in my heart, and it also has watt a lot of like first place awards in film festivals. And then my other second favorite is what I made for college admissions. Actually, it's called my sweet Vivian, and it's like about this girl who meets up with her internet boyfriend. And then he basically like kidnap ser and it's like there's a plot twist at the is just it's easy. Anyone can watch these. So most of my foams are in festivals. Hence they are not published anywhere because they're not allowed to be. However, some of the sometimes festivals will put them out and there. There's also like a lot of stuff on my and not a lot. There's four videos on my video including both of those I just mentioned. So if you go to video dot com, slash Ray canola should show up a half some on my YouTube, but like I don't have everything out there, but you can always Email me if you wanna see stuff I can give you like a private link. I recommend watching, especially if you're interested in films, shows growth from young person. I shared see such difference between the stuff you were doing a few years ago. The stuff totally vested interest, so you should too. Yeah. Anyway, what is your dream person to work with one day in a movie or TV show that you might make? Oh my gosh. Okay. This is like super random. This isn't even a famous person. There's this guy named Jacob. Jacob Owen sees a music video director. Mostly.

The examples you gave I cited your article with regard to now there is a -firmative action for females in the sciences because this was an amazing quote. I think you've got it from UC San Diego. But correct me if I'm wrong, they have said the right answers are not what matter did I get that. Right. Well, there's there's complaints about too many facts. And yes, the idea that science is involved in right answers is a patriarchal racist oppression. That is not how we should define scientific excellence any longer, but simply being communal, and as a Pennsylvania university of Pennsylvania medical school, Dr and oncologist was reprimanded for giving an exam in the pharmacology of of cancer drugs that was to fact-based what should watch. Should it have been if it was to fact-based? I'm not kidding. Did they give an alternative? I think I think you're probably supposed to allow people to heal to to to describe their their sense of oppression from from the the the sexist medical profession, presumably that is ignoring breast cancer. Which is of course, completely fallacious. I don't mind boggles. So the sciences I've I've been saying for decades now the universities outside of the sciences universities outside of the sciences. That's the way I generally put it, but it's not true any longer. Absolutely not. It's true. Neither in the universities, nor in the corporate world the National Science Foundation. This is what's really shocking. Trump has done a lot to deregulate and try and get the bureaucracy in check. But he has not touched yet the National Science Foundation. They're spending hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer dollars. Try to pressure academic science departments into hiring by gonads and melanin completely irrelevant to scientific achievement. They are spending millions of dollars on ridiculous studies. In intersection -ality, your your readers that are completely up-to-date on on the academy will know that this is the latest coinage to try to express the utter awfulness of what it is to be a privileged college. Student today, if you happen to be one of the ever growing number of victims and the world at large is following suit. You know, our biggest tech companies like Google like Microsoft are putting gender and race ahead of scientific competence and in hiring. There was a a lawsuit that's been filed this year against YouTube because someone in the human resources recruiting department was ordered to not interview white males for entry level engineering jobs. No matter how qualified they may be that the fact that they were white and male disqualified them from from consideration Dennis this puts our competitive edge. So at risk. Well, it puts decency at risk could put science at risk. It's the Americans are no longer individuals. We are members of races. This is unprecedented except for obviously slavery and Jim crow. Well, and the lack of of historical awareness is is stunning. But obviously the left gets around Apocrypha see with a set of even more absurd claims by definition, they say victim groups such as blacks cannot be racist. I we saw this in the response when. Web based tech writer named Sarah John was given a position on the New York Times editorial board in July and web sleuths uncovered of a long string dating back years of her Twitter posts that were very viciously anti male. She was treated as somehow an aberration. In fact, she's simply a banal completely predictable product of the American Academy everything that she thinks about sexism. And and and and the toxicity of whiteness is directly an academic import. But her defenders went on to say that don't you know that only whites can be racist. Only whites can violate the equal protection clause. This is ridiculous. I've spent a lot of time in Harlem covering the good people. They're covering the thousand. Thousands of bourgeoisie citizens who support law and order, but I have come across. The the most unbelievable anti white racism that is part of a certain part of inner city, black culture. But you're simply not allowed to notice that. Oh well. They suppress essentially covered up. The fact that Louis Farrakhan that was was two persons away from Bill Clinton. At. Theory for Franklin. Funeral. Well, you know, this is the the motivating idea in the academy right now from the moment students step on campus. They are inundated with the message that America is endemically racist, and sexist and most preposterously of all that to be a college student on on the most well endowed open, tolerant privileged resource field environments in human history, tolerant, of course, if you're not a conservative is to be the target of endless, literally, life-threatening, racism and sexism, it's it's completely fantastical.

"Complex in regulated, and you have come on patient risks and there as well. And so I turned and looked at another very data driven domain data analysis. And honestly, it's just by kind of hearsay of so many people saying, hey, have you checked out these notebooks, they're fantastic. I've been using them for for months or years now for doing analysis. We're pretty amazing. You should really look at this. And so whereas at UC San Diego, bunch of people were using these tools for very basic biology neuroscience research. So that got me into looking in l. k. how are people using these tools to track and talk about very complex data driven work? Yeah, that's awesome. So maybe that's a good place to segue into kind of what you've been doing recently. He said, you are UC San Diego, a very nice school down in San Diego, and you just finished your PHD as a human computer interaction researcher in which is a. Sub portion of say, cognitive science, and I was really surprised how much computer programming and software is involved in cognitive science more broadly. No signs is an interesting field, but it's kind of a fusion of psychology and computer science, and you go back to some of the early days looking at folks like herb Simon and others at Carnegie Mellon. I in around the world and they were playing in both fields of developing intestinal software trying to figure out, can we model how the brain works and in there's kind of the reverse transition of people will look at the brain use that to try and figure out how can we build more efficient algorithms or computer systems with neuromorphic computing. I just finished my PHD a month ago actually. So still fresh off with that. Are you just super relaxed now? I am saying that I'm almost in this academic sabbatical period where we still have funding them still continuing to do some of the research that will talk about today, but due to my wife's job, moved to a different city now up in Portland, staying on the west coast, but very different in terms of sunshine hours from San Diego lesson shine. Maureen. Maureen, which is great. Yeah. When I moved to the San Diego from Seattle when I was in Seattle really loved the less green and so that San Diego has many benefits the the surfing burritos the sunshine, but it lacks in green. So it's nice. So you still are finishing up this research a little bit that we're gonna be talking about and then Vince time to hit the real world. Are you thinking academics? Are you thinking industry where you where you headed announcing industry? At this point on China hand, something slightly different than see with that world is like gotten a good dose of after..

"And sells at the edge of a biofilm community tend to grow more robustly than the interior once because they are on the outside. They've got more access to nutrients and to keep the edge girth in check and ensure that the entire community stays healthy and the hungrier interior members. The biofilm interior Sindh electrochemical signals to members of the exterior saying, send us booed or something along those lines and these signals hall consumption on those edge bacteria and start. They start passing nutrients to the interior so that the interior does not starve. And also this also ruins back. We report about this talked about that affect in the past, Carl Zimmer New York Times. It was on the we. It was at the time we were dubbing it in. Altruistic thing where if these colonies are these biofilms are in a sort of famine state the outside edge ones will pack nutrients e to the interior even if they themselves are starving to death and dying. So he's the signals from the interior to the exterior are important enough that the cells an extra will ignore basic biological instinctual built in programming for self-preservation, and we'll feed the interior. And now we can see basically that there's a signal that is coming to them saying to do this Cody voice of just of Larkin UC San Diego. So feeding the the about the allowing nutrients to pass to the interior. This keeps the interior fed well enough. And if a chemical attack comes and takes out some of the exterior cells, then the protected interiors able to continue in the whole population can't survive. It is essential that the. Chemical signal be consistently transmitted all the way to the biofilm edge because that is the place where the growth must be stopped for the community to reap the most benefit from this signaling and approaching their new study. Researchers sought to explain how thorough communities are able to propagate these electrochemical communications signals. So it sounds very brain like right ion channels like they don't have of course neurons. There's not these pipelines of connect conductive sending ions up and down between the cells. So they have instead structures to relieve he's electric chemical signals known as acts on these are bacterial communities which that's the neurons have this. So they're trying to figure out how were they doing it. So they went through all kinds of data began collaborating with Purdue University. This is Andrew Mugler and jailing Gye who proposed the idea that her collection at theory could explain how bacterial communities may be propagating..
