"Mike Son was professor chair of physics and astronomy at twice university. He's twisted focuses on the electronic magnetic adopt properties launches the conduct. Thank you happy to be here. Thanks for doing the silent still with you. Come in three in physics today. The years ago of conduct matters image. Problem you said condit's mattress largest discipline bit physics. It has enormous influential. Average person stabilized nonetheless the feed flies under the popular radar routinely upstate in the press television at popular literature but news of astrophysical exotica in the quest for new elementary particles I agree with you I used to have a h getting background in that. I think about physics generally just think about desperate physical exotic that you mentioned the politics so says a looked exactly is it. Let's start. Let's go to the physics What exactly is condensed matter physics. Condensed matter physics is what is the modern name for what people call us to call solid state physics but i think they want people wanted to include liquids as well so that's why it's sort of condensed phases distinct from gases and the whole point of condensed matter physics the whole philosophy behind condensed matter physics to use the word in a non professional way is that there are emergent properties. That happen when you bring together large numbers of constituents that may be interact via very simple rules. You can end up with emergent behaviors and emergent properties. That are not at all obvious.
Justices Defer Harvard Case on Race in College Admissions

The Migration of the Monarch Butterfly
"On the show today. Migration there are many hundreds if not thousands of species of birds that migrate. there's caribou across canada wildebeest in africa. There are migratory fish like salmon and also a lot of marine animals migrate long distances like sea turtles and whales. But right now. Let's turn our attention to the humble but tenacious monarch butterfly. I think of monarchs is the tanks of the butterfly world. so they're small they way only a half a gram but they can travel thousands of kilometers in the wild. This is sonia. All tyzzer many colleges at the university of georgia so i study the ecology of animal migration and sonya says monarch butterflies are different because their migration is multi generational so the same monarch never makes the journey twice. It's their grand offspring and great grand offspring of the migratory generation that will migrate again the following year sonya's specifically talking about a migration path east of the rocky mountains. These monarchs travel thousands of miles across international borders every year. Ecologists think they're looking for the precious milkweed clamped in arguably the most important driver for them is food and especially milkweed plants where the females can lay their eggs. Another reason why they migrate is to ride out the winter in the sierra madre mountains near mexico city
When To Ignore The Professionals
"Hey ladies i have just left my first skin consultation. And i'm a bit confused and i think i need your help. I knew that the place i was going would obviously push a skin line that they stock and sell which is fine. I was totally prepared for that. But the consultant went as far as saying that i shouldn't trust any supermarket or drugstore brand and even some products that i buy from places like a dole beauty which also stokes the same brand that they talk sir was she being a total smelled or is there any merit in what she was saying. Thanks bye put her in the bin girl. I am would tear in skip chucker in. Let's cancel her. Honestly this totem pole. Yeah this stuff really gives me the shit some allowed to say shits chia checking with so nice for checking. Just roy goal the time impor- jays probably like we have to bleep you again kelly. I know right sorry goodness. It's two thousand and twenty one. This person is so clearly operating on commission. Yes a clearly not aware of the university of live in which is to pick and choose from different brands. I mean i think almost everyone. Skincare retain is from different brands. No one really uses the brand. This just makes me angry as well because yes. She's working on commission and we all like to earn money but she's trying to earn money at the detriment to this person. Yes exactly telling her false thing. Yes just sephora and mega. Have some fantastic brand. They stuck a lot of cosmic skin care. Adult beauty stocks pretty much every brand that exists so the fact that she's saying that is just a flat-out lie. It's also very privileged to be able to say that because a lot of people can't afford to just go to these salons and body stuff price sign and chemist warehouse stock fantastic again. 'cause macedo brands affordable prices. Still some of the products out there on the eighty ninety dollar mark but they have some really affordable effective skincare. My advice is to absolutely leave. That person don't give her any money going find a new skin guru that he's going to embrace the fact that you're gonna shop everywhere that you're gonna use different products that you've got different
The 14-Day Rule on Human Embryo Research
"Story. The very very beginning. Not the big bang beginning although that could be a kind of metaphor for the moment of conception i guess couldn't it but what i mean is back to those two single cells a woman's egg a man sperm fusing together to form a fertilized cell the zygote now that might have all started in a test tube in your case but ultimately zygote then found its way to the lining of your mother's uterus buried in and got ready to rock or at least divide to sells for cells eight sixteen again and again cells starting to rearrange and organize and differentiate from each other along the way and by day. Fourteen things start to look interesting. Still massive cells but they lying and specializing at this point and die. Fourteen has long been a cutoff point in many countries which permit research using embryos including hearing australia. It's so called fourteen day role which stipulates that. After fourteen days no experiments using embryos are allowed. Hey it's natasha mitchell. With science fiction many scientists argue. The fourteen day rule is outdated and no longer fit for purpose. Recently we actually saw them culturing for the first time. Human embryos all the way up to date thirteen but stopped molecular biologist dr keystone matthews is a fellow in science and technology policy at ross university in houston texas because they wanted to respect the guidelines and the laws and the land those particular countries they were doing the research and and that was. I wasn't a that hadn't been able to be done before so innocence. The fourteen day rule was always hard physical very true. Yes before this point it was just some theoretical limit that didn actually impact the day to day research but that's changed and
What Happens When Hidden Histories Become a National Conversation?
"At the end of may. When news broke that the remains of more than two hundred children had been found at the kamloops indian residential school. It was news to many canadians. Who learning about the history of residential schools and the role. The canadian government played in the creation. It seemed to mark a new sense of awareness across the country in indigenous communities. Grief came quickly but not shock and not surprise. These types of losses are well known in our nation's and in our families and in real time we watch the rest of the country feel the depths of this history daniel heath justice is a colorado born citizen of the cherokee nation and he's an author and professor of critical indigenous studies and english at the university of british columbia. He joins me now to talk about what happens when hidden histories come to light daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We're talking about hidden histories on the show today and for me the idea of hidden histories is interesting. Because they're not hidden for everyone up until a few years ago when unreserved would would air story about residential schools. We'd get emails from people telling us that they had never heard of this before the show for sharing this information and that's a luxury indigenous people don't share. It's in our families. It's it's part of our history. How do you think so much of this. History hasn't made its way out of our communities. I struggle with that question. I think there is a sense in many ways that this is only about indigenous people rather than being very much about settler colonial canada. I think there is a sense for a lot of people that when we say school. We mean an educational facility which these were not. I mean these were re education and torture camps. I think we have to start naming them for what they were. I think non-indigenous people Just tune out because the the level of the horror if they had to face it would radically transformed their feelings about the country that they live in if they honestly address that
Ice Shelf Protecting Antarctic Glacier Is Breaking up Faster
"A new study says a critical Antarctic glacier is looking more vulnerable as satellite images show the ice shelf that blocks it from collapsing into the sea is breaking up a lot faster than before the pine island glacier's ice shelf loss xcelerated in twenty seventeen causing scientists to worry that with climate change the glacier's collapse could happen a lot sooner than the many centuries predicted the study's lead author is Ian jock in a university of Washington glaciologist who says long shore winds tend to bring more penetrating deep water into the cavity which leads to melting that spend the glacier up that cause more fracturing that because this part to break off and there's a potential feedback you know now that it's twelve percent more the ice shelf maybe have been weakened that much more according to a study in Friday science advances the ice shelf has retreated by twelve miles between twenty seventeen to twenty twenty I'm Shelley handler
Metals That Work Like Magic
"A few weeks ago. The wall street journal featured an article about a man who was mining bitcoin from a computer in his house. The computer was working so hard. It was heating up the entire room. It coin put your computer through a lot of calculations and many of us are spending most of our time at home these days so the man found a way to use all that energy coming off of his computer he siphon date to heat a greenhouse and grow basil and cherry tomato. That's how much energy has computer was wasting and it's not just the bitcoin guy. All of the devices were using. Give off excess energy. How many times have you noticed your laptop. Scorching your thighs collectively. We lose billions of dollars every year because of this so-called waste heat. It got me thinking about futuristic alternatives. That could work to reduce that waste. So i reached out to an expert. I'm marvin cohen. I'm university professor of physics at the university of california at berkeley. Dr cohen explained that this waste heat from all of our devices happens because of friction too much friction from electrons the electrons. Go down the wire and they bump into things sort of in the wire is heated so they knocked around and that gives you resistance and the wire gets hot. Cohen says that friction is called electrical resistance. And it's just what happens when you conduct electricity. it's normal. It means that some of the energy gets lost but there is a way to get around it to manipulate the electrons. So the wires don't get hot and energy doesn't get lost so if you could bring them together and keep them together you'll have a superconductor

Lynn new she identified as girl due to the limited knowledge around gender fauria in the nineteen forties and fifties. Lynn was raised as a boy. Lynn was a shy and reserved high school student. She excelled academically specifically in math and science. Her grades earned her spot at mit at the age of seventeen at mit. Lynn studied physics for two years before dropping out as a result of psychological distress with her gender identity. A few years later in nineteen sixty one linen rolled at columbia university. She earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering during this time. Lynn married a woman and the couple had two daughters together. Violet columbia limbs work caught the attention of professor who is a senior leader at ibm. He offered her a job on the ibm research team. That was covertly developing the world's fastest supercomputer. Lynn had secured her dream job. Then in nineteen sixty seven. Lind learned doctor named harry. Benjamin the leading researcher on transgender people and sex reassignment surgery after counseling and hormone treatments lynn decided to undergo gender reassignment surgery. To ease your transition at work lin planned for ibm to change her name on company records and transfer her to a different lab. No one would have to know but ibm corporate disagreed.

Haptic Intelligence With Katherine J. Kuchenbecker
"I'm really looking forward to digging into our conversation and your work. Which is at the intersection of robotics and machine learning. And i'd love to have you start us off with a little bit of background. How did you come to work in the field. Yeah i grew up in california. Actually although my name looks german. And i live in germany. I'm actually american. And i was raised by a research psychologist. My mom who said now retired professor and a surgeon and i was always fascinated by how things work and i wanted to create technology. Head helped people. I also did a lot of art. And i like riding ahead. Many many different interest and i was an athlete and athletics that led me to study at stanford university which was also enough to home but far enough away and i studied mechanical engineering. I really enjoyed understanding physics than how all had also design and build things produce functionality in the world and i was always drawn more towards like smart systems with sensors and actuators. Programming actually delayed taking programming class. Because i'd heard so difficult on the other athletes libel player. They all said oh. You know the programming class so hard. I loved it beyond words. And then i just i took more computer science punching i decided to stay for master's degree and i worked actually in as a teaching assistant a machine shop for two years helping students learn design and manufacturing like welding and casting bronze and milling aluminum and making parts sticking the shop late at night and i really fell in love with working with younger pupil helping them design and create things and i also took this amazing metrics class. There like realized. I wanted to become a professor and i that i needed a phd. And i needed a phd adviser. So i looked around and found a new professor. Was his first fish student. his name's Niemeier and he was one of the first engineers at intuitive surgical a robotic surgery company. That most of you probably know make davinci robot and we got along soup. Well was also volleyball player. And yeah the mechanical engineering computer science electrical intersection. It's really robotics Turning to do something useful whether that's in health or in consumer products or at work on so many different things now.
The Science Behind That Fresh Rain Scent
"Von. First time shortwave reporter. We're talking geos spin which we associate with the smell of fresh rain fresh oil and you said it comes from a bacteria yet it primarily comes from a big group of bacteria called tina may cds and the men in soil mostly comes from a single genus called streptomycetes streptomycetes. I love that keep going. Streptomycetes have evolved an uncommon survival strategy for bacteria. I mean you're a microbiologist. Indeed what bacteria do when conditions are good. When they're happy well it went. Bacteria are happy. They make more bacteria that's their whole vibe. So one cell splits into two. It's called binary fission right and if you're a type of bacterium that can swim sort of wiggle around before you divide you'll maybe try to situate yourself somewhere with a lot of good food for your offspring but for most of its lifetime. Streptomycetes isn't mobile. So if it's in a location with not a lot of food or if it starving it has to do something else to be sure. Its offspring have a good shot at survival. This bacterium is actually very weird. That's mahmoud abbas. He's a researcher. At university of california san diego and he worked on the same study as close as the starves to make sure that is offering will survive it start to produce doorman cells and these doorman sales can withstand dryness Lack of food and then once the environment is favorable so they have food they have water. They can grow again dormant cells. Okay that that means. We're talking bacterial spores. Which is very exciting. Basically win some. Bacteria are stressed they can produce these tough little cells called spores and those can withstand things that normal bacterial cells probably couldn't survive
The Science Behind That Fresh Rain Scent
"Your eyes Listen take a deep breath and try to smell the smell of this sound. Oh i can do this. Actually that is rain smell. Ding being your winner now bonus question. Do you know what causes that smell. Oh god no absolutely not game over so there are a few different things that contribute to the frustrating smell but the main one is a chemical compound called it's made by bacteria and our noses are incredibly good at detecting it and besides festering. You might also associate it with something else. This compound courses to form people that attractive smell soil. Who yeah i do. Love the smell of soil. So do i. And sodas class flared. He's a professor of microbiology. At lund university in sweden and he studies the materia. That mixed use men in soil. Okay okay so it's not anything about the rain. That smells that way the raindrops are churning. Up this stuff. This geofs men. That's been sitting on top of the soil and then once it's in the air we can smell it. Yes
Conversations on Integrative Medicine
"Those who might be a little bit new to the idea of what is complementary and alternative medicine. Could you kind of shed some light on that kind of what is it. How is it used. And there is evidence behind it right like i think when you hear you know complementary and alternative medicine people are like oh man. There's some some nut job from a blog talking about something right. But there's there's real evidence in researches support some of these techniques right so definitely. I'm going to go over and hopefully touch upon some of those concepts that Like evidence or practice. But i do want to mention real quickly a disclaimer. That like my views. That i'm gonna be talking about today are mine and don't necessarily reflect the views american university of health aside just got a with that so you know when we talk about You know complementary and alternative medicine you know. I think it's important that we have. An understanding of some of these terms are used a lot in the marketplace and there are sometimes used interchangeably. And we don't have some clear understanding So i think it's important sometimes to step back and learn a little bit about these terms so for example the national center of complimentary integrative house it defines alternative medicine as nonconventional medicine. That's used in place of conventional medicine. So let's win like the you know. The acupuncturist is the only practitioner. The patients seeing and they're not using any other form of medicine. in comparison. complementary medicine is when you're using non-conventional medicine along with sorry nonconventional medicine along with conventional medicine. So that's the patient is in the primary care doctor but also going to see in our blest as well
Evolving Dharma, With Vince Fakhoury Horn
"I vince thanks so much for joining me today to see again. That's a really nice opportunity to have a chance to talk. I've i've been a fan of buddhist geeks for such a long time now and It's been a real delight to connect over the years in different ways on twitter. and so on Kind of impetus so people know. Recently for this conversation was recently offered to talk to me about Transparent generosity models. You've been doing a lot of experimentation at buddhist geeks with different forms of structuring organizations nonprofit work which is something i'm fascinated with so that's what i'm really hoping to steer towards but So so we'll get plenty of time to talk about that. But i'd also like to get the bigger picture for folks of like why that work is so important to you so maybe we could start just by talking about your story and your background and kind of where you're coming from with your life and with meditation and buddhist geeks kind of. Tell me whatever you'd like to about your story and your life okay I'll i'll try to give this some nil sketch of how i got to where i am today. so i'm thirty eight now. Almost their gate in. I started doing a formal practice when i was nineteen so just about twenty years ago actually less thirteen i started and then stopped for a little while and came back with nineteen been practicing since and i was a computer engineering student at north carolina state university at the time when i started to catch the enlightenment bug and start to really kind of wonder like what's true. What's really true. And who am i and like these kind of deep existential questions which can arise. I think often for people at that age but then i think too when they arise. It's like well. I gotta get to class. I've got finished by the terms like there's all these things that we're doing and for some reason the seeking for me was so strong and so intense and so important that really overshadowed everything else that was doing
Immune Boosting, Is It a Bust?
"Can you boost your immune system. Yeah what pitting facts against fighting off infections and this idea that we can pop a pill to boost our immune system. It started exploding during the early days of the pandemic. Tim caufield professor of public health at the university of alberta canada was watching as old took off. It was in the air. You know this idea of immune boosting it was just part of the gestalt own remain so and is the pandemic got worse and worse s s idea grew and grew and it felt like products to boost the immune system was suddenly everywhere. Especially as we've seen all over social media. And tim wanted to know what exactly was the stuff that was getting touted all over the internet so he did what any self respecting academic would do and he started scrolling instagram. And i really did i. I went through hundreds and hundreds of post day for work at the lab for you is getting a coffee and scrolling instagram. And you know. I wish i could say it was it was fancier but that's what i did team and he's tame systematically trolled instagram looking for the trending posts labeled with the hashtag immune booster and there was a lot of the stuff that you'd expect so called superfoods vitamins herbs. Were in the mix too i i saw supplements remain a vitamin d to Zinc and obviously vitamin c. Ginger elderberry echinacea saw a lot of smoothies a lot of smoothies out there and of course all they came with a healthy dose of that influence holier vibe. Tim talked about it without producer. Rose ramllah let me see like the instagram post. The mother of all immune boost instagram posts voted like it would definitely be someone sitting on the beach. Our in the forest they would be in a yoga pose foreshore. They would have a smoothie by the their side asset limits in one hand and magical berries in the other
"university and" Discussed on Do By Friday
"I wanna savor and enjoy every time we have in exchange. I just because. I can't do it right now. Doesn't mean i don't care. I don't think that's kind of what we're saying. Here right you some kinds of things. Where like i don't always have the even the guts to say turn off notifications for this cause. Okay my being emotional about this. And i'm gonna be bombed that i'll miss stuff in the future but in some cases i yeah i think you're on you're on the right track. Which is like yeah i one hundred percent care about this but i also have one hundred percent agency to one hundred percent care about this and half an hour. I really wanna finish the thing that i'm doing right now before i even go and do something i would like to do with somebody that i like. That doesn't make that not important. It's just that there's a stack here. We've got work our way down. Yeah abs- yeah. I agree and and that's why i say was the wrong week because i'm in kind of a mood about that right now and so the last thing i needed was another thing going ding. While i'm watching. George floyd murderer sit there. Yeah the always that fear in his i. i know as accountability. And it's just a glimmer of hope but that was a very satisfying glimmer of hope. You really think that's true. I heard a lot of people. Say that but i think he was very well prepped. About what exactly what's going to happen. I don't them surprised. I thought i mean like. I think most of america absolutely assumed he would be acquitted on On the on the murder charge Or murder to And it looked as if he sort of expected the same thing like he'd get whatever at the what was the lowest one like an intense manslaughter. Yeah and when it was like guilty on the first count like every. I was checked into the matrix. And because you figure there's like it's almost like price anchoring. Yeah yeah the price anchoring thing of like you have three levels. You need somebody. You always get the middle one like as somebody. Who's been on juries. I what i expected. Was they find him. Guilty on one yet pro. If they found him guilty they'd find healthy of one big. Yeah yeah but like you would be something know. There's there always is that like you've read enough old testament to act like solomon You know and to be like willow be very wise and do an unexpected thing here. You know the michael scott way it we're gonna tear down the poster and you have to wear it on the shirt and all that kind of stuff win win win win but but i i was I mean i don't want to overstate it. But i agree with you. I i did not expect it to go. The way that it went and one doesn't say one is happy but I'm for all kinds of reasons. I'm glad it went the way did i. I mean the it was watching the folks outside the courthouse crying with relief and not heartbreak is something. We've literally never seen or like literally. Never seen in in minnesota at least and i it was. I don't know it was really. It was really great. A got off twitter after a things had cleared up. The after. I finished my cops. I work as you know. I can't if they basically literally i've just my spine his curling thing about that. But yeah no i. I don't Also say the word justice is so hard to define like much like forgiveness. It's or especially restorative. Justice is really hard to define. And but i mean yeah no It was yesterday was a lot better than i could have hoped except on. Twitter was terrible on twitter. Exactly logged off. I agree with that lady falls in york time. She's like well rot in hell is trending. So let's call it a day for me. Yep okay boy. There's a lot of performance going on yesterday. Oh yeah a lot of a lot of green icons yesterday. Oh yeah remember. We remember how much we still care about iran e. Yeah yeah there we go there we go. We'll talk about happy things. And that's why i say it was a bad week notion. Lemonade could find this very useful. Did you look at the central called minus minus dot up. I did and then it wouldn't open. Because i was on mac pro required. There was so much on boarding. For this i said to myself. I'm not ready to be onboard this much. But if if you're interested in things like this. I would encourage people to take a look at the look at minus thought app because it several sort of classes of destruction free environments stuff. Wait hold up real quick. Do only you run on an m one. I thought oh i. I'm not sure. I'm reading on something. Got on board and it was really a lot but one thing like. Is that like what you can do it so that whatever the thing is that you're supposed to be working on right now. Becomes like a little sticky at the top. I think it's kinda cool out like you can even had pull from different apps like this is the task that i'm working on which sounds simple but you know if if if you don't need this that won't make sense and if you do need this you realize how valuable it is that there's something in your face all the time saying this is the thing you're supposed to be working on so probably still play with this but you know at the end of the day. I don't know carpenters need distraction free environments ways it. It's like it's still so funny to me. But that's the thing but the nature of their job. No one wants to come get sought us over them and here you know the sighing in banging So no no. I mean i understand both of what. We're trying to say what i'm trying to say is like don't get a job like this if you can't handle that because that's part of the job you know what i mean if you if you can't be a minister without stealing money from the till maybe that's not for you right if you can't be a cop without needing to kill the occasional black man just because it helps you blow off steam. Maybe that's not for you. And if you find distraction so overwhelming that you can't do your fucking work on a computer that's good to know that's real good to know it's just it is interesting to me that like we. Every forgiveness in the world for our own maladies with this when there are other people doing much more difficult work who are suffering from anything similar in terms of maladies. Maybe because they're not allowed to suffer. And i believe me i understand. I'm a whole damn website about this. I'm very sympathetic to this. But i also do think there is. You can go too far. And i have gone too far with all the wackadoo back bends the you into what you think you need to be doing. All the strange the bizarre like fetishes you need to undertake in order to live right two hundred words and like what i think at least for myself more. He's i'm cynical about all this stuff is.

There is not enough stilts and strings and crutches and host files to make care about what you're doing. There's not an app that can make you do that. And if you like. And that's why. I say in my case it takes and you hear me struggle with with those notification stuff because if i turn it off. John's turkeys yells at me. Like if i. I missed the one thing. No it's not on him.

"You're doing your thing. And so he basically said the to. I mean i. I ran a pretty stock. And basically just gives you a ping every once in a while and asks you a basic question on your watch and it Hey you know. Are you focused. On the thing you want to be focused on. Yes no or dismiss And then generates like kind of like little line graph and you can figure out if you're on on ask and this. I really like this app. Is like a little starter like the idea of it. It didn't it didn't work for me as a thing. But i like the idea of a a great deal and there times when i really could've used it. When i wasn't writing a book it would have been incredibly helpful to get a periodic reminder that there is a thing above other things. I should be doing right now. Yeah and that's kind of how. I've been always using the tomato timer but this didn't work for me not just for practical reasons. It's also just the wrong week. Because i'm having a week right now. We're like i'm once again at the point of just like literally turning off notifications. That's that's. I thought that i turned off all the notifications. I'm i might watch. Band stretched out. And i keep missing notifications on. I'm like oh this is nice. Maybe i should do more rate. Why turned off. Like i mentioned before i turned off almost everything when we went to that What do you somebody in august. And they're still bunch of having turned back on But like for example like got you know castigate a little bit by siracusa last night. Because i look i opened slack probably twice a week and it's just what i need to do. Something in slack which i know is pound sign thorpe but i just But then on top of that as done this home assistance stuff. There's a ton of stuff where i've just set up I just wanted to make sure thing works. Rate so for things like presence detection Will the presence detection work. I don't know. I've done a couple of different ways okay. It the prison detection works. Let me know. Set that up a couple different ways so i have stuff now. We're like a seemingly trivial event causes like six notifications. That's already on. Top of the weird thing where i leave my office and it gives me three different notifications my ring alarm. It gives me another notification. That says your wife just was notified that you're on your way home. It's so weird. The way that works in fine my but like battling me for almost all of those. But like i swear to god i i would like to think it could help a lot if i got more control over the ding ding but all. I wish there was warmer control over the notification. In general i wish i could say hey pause all this kind of notification. I mean it's crazy to me that you could basically either have. It can be there on offer deliver quietly well. this particular app i just. I want to basically pause this for two days. I don't need to know anything about this for two days but even better. I don't know anything about this. They're smart enough about category to know that there are upset go into library in a certain folder could not just say everything under social or communication or whatever can't say don't give me notifications on this for x. Hours or days like. I really wish i could do that. I don't want to never have it again. But i want the equivalent of the south by southwest muffle. I just want the like. I love you so much but i don't want to hear anything from you for the next nine days. It doesn't mean an like you just means. I don't want to notification from you. That's we have to grow as people know. Yeah absolutely but then also give me different. Sounds gimme different. There's two kinds of dings as far as i can. Tell on. the phone is some. That's the one thing that's clearly a message or the other thing. which is everything else. That's i mean. That's how i have it set to go so rapid fire wanting gets cut off for the next one's coming up and then i have to scroll to see four notifications at a piled up and it's like i hate all of it. I hate all that so much. And it's not help. Finding to redo that i would love the ability to snooze notifications like a four. I want this later with this particular notification later. Yeah yeah just like typically. I'm not a fan of like snoozing emails. You know. Octa thorpe inbox zero. But look i don't wanna i don't wanna be reminded when i'm near arriving at my house. I want to be reminded ten minutes after i've arrived at my house. Gop up yup just goes into the junk pile. It's just all more shit than i missed And i actually now use the bedtime feature. That's baked in ohio s but Not not so much to tell me when to go to bed but the automatic turning off of notre origins. Because yeah because my short cut for broke and i was i was right. It wasn't my fault. Very pleased with that. Because i hit but the and it just turns on. Do not disturb. And i love that. You can mark people's vip like yes. Allow this to come through or allow calls. That happen twice. But i would love the wine. Why not with messages. I would love just like okay. Anything my spouse and like my immediate family sends me let it through or anything that that merlin sends me on like between wednesday and thursday. I mean obviously always want to hear from merlin. No no no. but that's a really good point. Well because i agree. I totally agree with you. But it's also that you know this is kind of old school. Merlin thing but like there's all kinds of things. It's so ironic. Were paradoxical that there are so many things that were supposed to pretend are important. But we don't treat his important like if that interruption if interrupting you're right now to have a meeting is really important. Why isn't it not worth taking the time to schedule. Your you know your your emergency does not constitute my emergency. And it's a little bit glib to say like just anything that goes. Ding has equal importance. Which sounds like a like a straw man. But it's not because that's really all. I have to go by if i a buzz. All i have is the buzzing a ding. It's still down to me to go and look at that and see what it was but think about this. If you put this in like the eisenhower matrix like you go like well. There's some things that are important there some things that are urgent and like they're being extremely important but not at all urgent right. This is what makes the matrix good and like there are other kinds of things like no no matter how urgent they already you. They're never important to me so like i it.

"university and" Discussed on Glowing Up
"Code glowing up. Gosh what else is going on in our university. We should talk about our goals for the year. Okay go ahead somber. No i i just wanna to say like an i. I've said this before. Maybe it was esther club. Maybe it was here. But like i have like a real issue where i feel this pressure to change my whole life in the new year. Everything about me has to be different in new and improved and they end up putting all this pressure on myself. That come january. Now i get. There's it's not like a coincidence that it's only january when i get these really crazy things that happen like when you're i got shingles in january which caused from extreme stress last year. I had like a total mental breakdown in january. So for me. It's all about just like every. Don't expect anything to be different. It's gonna be okay. You're in control you don't have to change. You can meet you. So that's really my approach to the new year Is just kind of keeping calm. Not getting too high not getting too low and continuing on with all the stuff i've been doing the has been really helping my mental health. You know as you know carolyn. I started lexa pro and that's been really helpful for my anxiety I i really focus on having social connection every single day. You know used to be a person that thought like oh i can just do it all on my own. I'm a stand up. comedian. I work by myself. You know but you need that. Social connection is i need it. I need it to feel happy. Happiness is not something you just get something you earn every single day. So that's kind of. I just want more of the stuff that's working for me. That worked for me in twenty twenty coping wise. I wanted us can carry it on and twenty twenty one. You know. I i really want twenty twenty one to be the year of me and like honoring. What makes me feel good. Doing what makes me feel good and like really embracing my best most luxurious self. You know my grandma passed away this year which was really sad. You know it was his time. He was ninety nine years old but he is such a big part of my life and he was like the embodiment of excess and extravagance and like living for himself living for no one else. And just like whenever you wanted to do. He would travel like by nice things just like live life to the fullest. Everyone a round of drinks. He just had such a zest joie aviv. And that's something that. I really want to cultivate in myself and like of course. I'm really blessed to have a job right now have income and i want to like one. It's okay to travel again like amid a book the first flight out of l. a. and travel for three weeks and like have the best time i wanna like by the things for myself that i want. I want like look good. Feel good and just. I'm thirty years old. I just want to be the best. Carolina can be and leave no stone unturned. I don't want to have regrets. I don't wanna don't wanna be sad. I just wanna be happy in excessive and all the right ways. Twenty twenty once a year of access. I think that's cool. Because i do. You know i've been close for like five six years. Whatever now and one thing. I do think about you as an actually in a way i look up to you which is weirdly the opposite of what you're saying is like you're really good about not wasting your money and i just want to say like that's the side of you that i really respect. Now be curious to see what accesses to you knowing you it it is the all the right things like travel and But i'm curious what else that will end up being. It's it's travel it's doing. What makes me feel good. Not being scared or concerned with anyone else thinks of me. It's like i. of course. I want to save up to buy a house but like and i know this on what it's like. I wanna by myself like beautiful things and like shoes and clothes and just like wake up every day and just feel like the fabulous self. That i am really. Yeah i wanna be more materialistic and twenty twenty one you know. Yeah i have fucking and of course know my religion and using using our means to be as generous as we can. Of course this has been such a tough year. I'm going to planning on doing some like great charity. Giving as i have been doing throughout the year i've donating a portion pretty nice portion of my sales on like masks and everything to a bunch of amazing organizations like equal justice justice initiative some like the southern law center. Whatever that like really great like trans rights organization is whatever i have listened to my website. I wanna keep giving. And i want to give myself. I really wanted new iphone when it came out and instead of buying it for myself i bought it for a family member of mine. Who's you know is not have as much as me and i honestly feel so much better about that than having like now. I look at my old iphone and unlike happy. I'm like i love that. I have this old one. Give someone else a new one shot. You don't seem impressed by like just got really excited like just for a window inside our recording in our as everyone knows who's listening i found it a fish company. We're in the early stages and like any little update. Just feel so again. Apparently this big founder. Just posted about us. And i'm just so excited. Oh my gosh. I i was listening. Esther does not with my ears or is your heart was listening. I just wasn't listening. No no no you. it's gonna be a great year. i hope. I think if i've learned anything from this year assure and i'm not waiting for life to happen to me. I'm just succeed by the balls. Like that. And i'm an anything i've learned. It's that no don't expect anything. Don't put pressure just to just stay. Just stay in them right in your middle lane. Don't get high. Don't get loved kind of chuck long focus on your work. Focus on your homework Just keep coast in. Stay right here right in the right. You're safe space. If you never rise you'll never fall. That's what i'm talking about. Esther dispute great year. Yeah it's going to be a better year. And i mean i guess i would say both those things are wrong. It's been a tough year. But i'm so happy we had each other. I'm so happy we had the glow. Me's yeah excited to get through next year with the help of the globe's no but on a more serious note like i'm proud of both of us in this year. We both founded companies. I mean yours is a little more professional unreal than mine. Mine is just clothing by. Hey don't say that that's not true but you know we're doing our thing and if people have questions especially about like starting companies like any of that stuff people should write to us because we wanna know what you want to know from us and we wanna do more episodes just the two of us this year because we know you guys have been requesting those.

Yeah i feel like a tip for today. I'm really not sit. Yeah i feel satisfied me to a good check in.
"university and" Discussed on Bitcoin Radio
"Such a degree program and it was started by Andre samples who is you know, an icon and in the Bitcoin and decentralized cryptocurrency space as being a thought leader and and some of the classes and courses are taught by other experts or or under sometimes himself. And so that's what really made it stand out as a program to me and it's great to be able to get a feel for that workload. And and what the course is about at first for free and then you can actually sign on Thursday. Commit to time and to doing that and so I definitely recommend that program but there are so many like free magnificent resources online also for learning. I think the advantage for having something like a university program not only just provides that that credibility to transition between you know, maybe traditional Industries and in the startup world or it provides that credibility but also a real networks and and maybe people that you can you know meeting in a class every week you're able to build real connections with people who have shared interests or maybe complementary skills to you and not something you can necessarily find, you know for free on a YouTube video, right? And so that's what we think we definitely offer as as a true, you know core advantage to having an actual course in class with fellow, you know people interested in this topic. Yeah I had Thought about you know, I kind of made sense to me the incentive to have like the stamp of approval from another credit of University if people are going to devote that much time. They need some skin in the game you some Investments that they've made I feel like sometimes people are more likely to take a class if it's paid for but also it when it's out of University you have that institution, right you have this thing where there's a professor. There's a mentor there's there's people that interact with so that's great. It just reminded. It reminded me to ask you about that program as I was going through kind of the blockchain education news that I've been following the last two years so dead check out that program many students watching. We have a presentation on a certificate program at Portland State University going to be part of the conference if anyone wants to check out that's for anyone not just matriculated students one can get a business of blockchain certificate and then I I've got a plug Mouse about University my program. We've got three classes. It's just eight weeks of each. I do a leadership class, which is just how to confidently in Chrome. Bentley talk about crypto Network how to throw a conference or hackathon just kind of i y blockchains important and then engineering and business class. We have the community of students from like a hundred schools and clubs or countries and there's also another great segment. I hope people will tune into called breaking in the blockchain where we interview about five Mouse about University students who have now gotten jobs in the crypto space at places like Rome briefing the block venture-capital internships things like that. So plugging all of those programs, but yeah to go back a bit. What I've been telling administrators is off there is like maybe a handful of schools that take that do crypto giving and any time a school starts to take crypto. It's a huge thing and the News because in in in crypto news, at least like you can really set yourself apart by adopting these things early and it's been well received where there's like one person who's really into it and like fighting for it, but I'm just curious if the University of Arkansas takes crypto donations or if the center does wage We've definitely looked into different things. Like how how can we diversify, you know our colleges profit maybe buy something like mining or you know, it crypto gave you know, whatever that looks like or even kind of instead of using things like our our annual hackathons our conference to do it that way with maybe like a type of coin coin reward or I I think why that gets difficult maybe a conversation in a university setting is because you do have so much responsibility to Steward money that has been given to you maybe you know by taxpayers of your state or um, you know donors for your college that have given a really generous gifts and I think because of the volatility and the uncertainty in this space, it's it's it's really difficult to have a conversation about you know, responsible stewardship in a practical way when it comes to, you know, holding cryptocurrencies. I think it's possible to build really a solid policies around. How you doing. Handle, maybe a holding cryptocurrencies or maybe even exchanging those and in a timely manner to just kind of maintain the Integrity of the gifts. But it's it's a really exciting idea to think about how you can diversify Revenue with things like cryptocurrencies and digital assets. Yeah. We've been thinking a lot about the potential to run staking pool and nodes because of you have so many students who are just like want to learn how to do blockchain and a great way to learn is to actually do it. So have them set up a node and and click, you know block rewards for four years. And this would be different kinds of cryptocurrency that are actually able to do that. But yeah all all interesting stuff. So now on the topic of the center tell me a little more about you said it was founded two years ago who who kind of thoughts about what was what was what's the mission there? Were there were you trying to do see happen. So we first kind of got the signal in in 2018 to really bring this together in a formal way off. Our our Dean is extremely Progressive and and a great leader and has really interested this space to us. Our students were overflow like spilling out like over a hundred of signing up for this hackathon that we had and the fall of 2017. That was just honestly kind of peaceful together. Like we're just going to give this a shot. Let's throw a blockchain hackathon. See see what the reaction is and what it was just overwhelmingly embraced by our student population and and they were so excited that the projects were so amazing, you know and just like a 24-hour period and off so it really solidified for us. The idea of this is something we need to pursue we had conversations with our corporate Partners in the area that were also interested in this technology. They were also practicing in it and and hiring people and and looking at researching systems and we're lucky enough to partner with, you know, the world's largest retailer Wal-Mart and and other you know, huge Fortune 500 company job. Like JB Hunt Tyson Foods that are all actually very active and leading the space. And so we had this, you know, Perfect Storm of student interest and and faculty joshin for it as well. As you know, corporate partners that also, you know wanted to hire people with these types of skills and knowledge. And so that was when it was really clear off, you know, setting up a Centre or entity within our business school within our Information Systems Department that was already very strong with with, you know, our data analytics and being able to provide just that off that caliber of you know, quality student coming from an information systems background, which is kind of this crossover between Tech and business. And so we we had just the right space need to plant this idea in the center. And so our our mission, you know, our vision is really to develop these students and to be a place where our Premier blockchain application. And Research Center for things really specific also, like maybe supply chain Innovation or retail analytics and and we want a balanced approach. We want to do things with public and private and hugged blockchains. We want to really make sure we're introducing people in a comprehensive way to the different Avenues of house. They could take in this industry. So that's that's kind of why we got started and how we thought started wage that's definitely involved in the last two years. We've we've grown our team and offer, you know, seven different courses right now and the Information Systems Department you can take you know, undergraduate as well as with all the courses we have what's been really popular as our blockchain minor because it's such a cross-disciplinary topic that we may have students from marketing or Finance or information systems are all interested in this minor or blockchain concentrations as well as certificate programs. And so we've been working really hard on building out. Content hiring some of em, The most incredible Minds that I personally think are in this space documentary lacity and doctored in Conway or two of our you know, clinical professors and and member like leaders of our blockchain sent off. And so it's just been a privilege to kind of see this even takes for it still taking form, you know over the last year and that's been really exciting. That's the excitement that our students have right? It's really fun to be part of such an emerging industry and really feel like you are shaping it with the kind of story of how the center got started you saw a big student interest and that kind of triggered the like, okay should do this. I see at most schools. It is all student interest and there's hundred percent blockchain clubs and they're teaching their own classes and like we we bought a van third UCLA's first-ever undergraduate blockchain engineering course, and they had sixty students sign up for it. Like they had they had to open registration like twice yet. You know, we still don't see a lot of the dog Action from the University and it's like there's a student demand you there your customers, you know their wedding to pay for it. You're going to charge them tuition. Like why aren't you moving some resources around to invest in this morning. So, I feel like you kind of need three things that you had pointed out right maybe even for which is to have a center an actual lab, but that's going to be an Institute part of the institution which is faculty passion. You said right student interests and corporate corporate partner right? Now, there's so few professors with any expertise that we really need industry to come in and and I thought that there's some friction with the university and Industry. Sometimes I know at least even from my position as someone who feels like a steward of of students. I am very careful to vet any corporate people that we work with and who I allow access to the students just cuz you know, you don't want them to get exploited or anything like that. So I understand it a little bit but but I think it hinders the progress a bit. So you need those three things off. Maybe the even a fourth thing which is across campus or or interdisciplinary collaboration. And and I talked to a lot of campuses that are really fragmented and there's not they're really vertical. There's not a lot of cross vertical like collaboration on on these projects and blockchain just touches so much of other industries that you need to have like the engineering department in the business office working together and I would even add to that the the legal department or the law school of wherever you're working. We that's that's kind of been unique for us, but it is difficult to you may decide on a university level where where a center lives or there has to be a natural fit and I think that is dependent upon you know, the contacts in the culture of what the university is about what their strengths are but we have you know, absolute leaders in in each college that are really there. There are part of what we call our academic faculty Network. We have our blockchain center of excellence. Staff but we also you know highly collaborate with with others and our Network at our University and that's helped us really also bring in students from from so many different areas and backgrounds and and Majors to when we host a hackathon we can say, you know build a team building a diverse team have somebody you know with with technical skills have somebody with you know passion for solving business problems and have somebody with legal knowledge and and it really gives you a product at the end of the day or like a pitch at the end of the day and the hackathon box where you see the whole picture of of you know, something that could you know gained a lot of excitement from from these corporate corporate partners, and that's what they want to see, you know, they want to see the whole idea of fleshed-out and wage. So that's what's been fun is, you know, making those connections and and bringing everybody onboard because it's it's not something that you know, one area can specifically own it's open right? It's going to be shared. It's okay. Are so that's the kind of mentality and approach we want to take from an educational perspective when we're considering, you know technology that that's that's the that's what it's about is interesting to watch non-european companies as they adopt this. We're not used to collaborating in the way that blockchain kind of necessitates and allows for so it's it's exciting to be in the blockchain and just see how much people are just willing to work together. It's not competitive. Right? So always encouraging more collaboration, we're across campus cross-departmental interdisciplinary stuff going on. So I just have like one more question and then we can share some final thoughts especially with any students watching who might be wanting to get into the blockchain space but was a pretty Global event and we're just checking in with everyone and and I'm curious a little bit more about what what you see in your school and then the region of Arkansas, you know some campuses. It's a really Tech Focus. I know a school in Australia the student mentioned to me. Yeah wage. Play a lot of law students who are interested in our campus. So it's just it's just cool to see like what are the particular interests in your region? And at your school, we live in a region that is definitely, you know, real minded definitely, you know managerial business skills are are critical, but we also, you know have an entrepreneurial spend in there. So I see, you know anything from you know, blockchain for art, you know nft startups. Do we have a student company that spins out from our engineering school from participating in our blockchain hackathons the last eight of you know, two or three years and so we we definitely have a good mix of of engineering and business. We have a lot of legal interests, but it's it's not so much in the startup space. I guess that's that's more our our traditional Enterprise route. So we there's a probably a clear, you know Enterprise path you can take or an entrepreneurial path you could take if you had those interests in dead. In Arkansas specifically, but what's neat about it is Arkansas is a relatively close, you know business Community Technology Community where you have bought a smaller degree of separation from maybe some really fascinating influential leaders in in the business area and the blockchain space and so that's what's kind of unique about working.

"Nicole I think we hear a lot about ice arresting immigrants undocumented immigrants but less about these sort of unorthodox tactics what are the other other ways isis sort of cornering people even deporting them historically ice hasn't been allowed to enter places that are deemed sensitive locations in that includes places like like schools churches courthouses. But there have been some changes in policy where we're seeing ice agents show up at places like courthouses or at US US citizenship and immigration services. Where people are going for interviews gain lawful status? So you're saying that someone might be in the process of becoming being a documented immigrant at A. UCS Office and ice might show up what while they're standing in line somewhere arrest them. Yeah they could be face to face faced with a UCS officer and be arrested in that circumstance. So for example people that I've come across usually been on authorized immigrants who may be married to a US citizen and can apply for a green card which would allow them to stay in the US permanently but in those situations they've showed up to their our interviews for their green cards at USCIS and have been arrested by ice and ultimately deported in some cases in some cases yes what are the effects of of arresting people people who are trying to do this the legit way you don't want to create a distrust and law enforcement and a lot of experts that I've talked to you say that the practice of showing up at courthouses and arresting people at their appointments with. USCIS will foster that kind of distrust. You want people to the show up when they are trying to make themselves legal immigrants. The farmington thing happened the Michigan. There was this New Jersey case that was similar from a few years ago were these. USCIS things happening that all across the country or one specific city. Or what. Yeah it's happening all across the country. I think there might be some differentiations in terms of how individual offices try to tackle this issue but for the most part it seems to be allowed nationwide. Is there a place where you're more at risk of becoming sort of duped by ice or people for example in so-called sanctuary cities safe from this kind of stuff sanctuary cities try to limit the local communities contact with ice and in some cases. They've been successful in doing that. But the problem is if ice wants to carry out an enforcement sweep where they're trying to weed out undocumented immigrants or shop courthouses. There's a limit to how much the state can do to kind of prevent those situations for example in Oakland. There was an enforcement sweep fit. The Oakland mayor had been alerted to and she consequently told everyone in the community about it that they could make sure to make the necessary preparation but due due to the reliability of my sources and the fact that I received this from multiple sources I felt that it was my duty to share the information. We will continue to dispel the ugly myth that many are perpetuating about our immigrant community. So there are these cases as of states and municipalities trying to really combat these kinds of extraordinary enforcement actions and in fact. Some states have really tried to pass laws that would enshrine that kind of protection in law so in California for example we've seen over. The last year are so that implementing a few centuries state laws. That would have prevented ice agents from accessing for example the private areas of a business that would make it more difficult but for them to arrest people in those places. But there's a limit to how much states can do and is the trump administration pushing back on that log. California passed yes so the trump administration has filed a lawsuit challenging those series of laws. But so far has been pretty much unsuccessful. I imagine some people hear about these situations with the university Farmington and say someone showing up to present their case set of. UCS office adhering during and being arrested and think that sounds like entrapment. That sounds like they were tricked. What legally counts as entrapment? These approaches roaches legal. So we would. I think have to wait for the outcome of any particular lawsuits that might be filed by students who have been implicated in the scheme to really understand whether this is legal or not but the legal definition of entrapment is basically the government has to induce someone to commit a crime I'm when they weren't previously disposed to commit a crime and the students are arguing that that's exactly what's happened to them here. What about in the case of say showing up to present present your case at a ucs office and then being arrested? Could that be deemed entrapment or some sort of trick the ACLU which has been arguing a case ace and connection to those arrests that UCS offices has classified. This is a form of entrapment. But it's not immediately clear how legally that will play out but these cases have not been decided now they have so you mentioned that both those Farmington situation in Michigan and people showing up at ucs who who are trying to attain documentation. They're both examples of ice sort of policing legal immigration. Do we have any idea how those approaches and schemes. If you will bill are affecting legal immigration yeah. This is part of a larger concerted effort to clamp down legal immigration and we. We don't have really hard numbers on the US CIS arrests but we do know that over the last two years we've seen consistent decline nine and the number of foreign students who are choosing to enroll in US universities so I think we can draw some pretty direct parallels there between policies like creating these fake universities and also others sort of roadblocks on student visas and the decline in the number of foreign students. So if the trump administration's Zhen's goal here is to deter legal immigration. It's working we're seeing some sort of systemic roadblocks to legal immigration here and all of these enforcement actions are parts of fat and that's largely informed by the the policies of Stephen Miller and some right-wing restriction EST immigration groups who have been lobbying for these kinds of systemic roadblocks for a long time time so this is really a realization of what they've been calling for for.

"Open your door it's US immigration and Customs Enforcement Ice. And you find out that the whole thing's fake. The university doesn't actually exist. It has no curriculum no classes. It's all scheme to weed out fraud. And now you might be deported Nicole. Maria Maria you cover immigration evokes. What exactly went down at the imaginary universe of Farmington in Detroit? So we've known about the scheme. Mm since last January when a series of indictments came out but the Detroit free press reported last week that there were over one hundred new arrests of students in connection with the scheme so so that brought the total up to about two hundred fifty students who have been arrested now. The university was listed on the Department of Homeland Security website as an approved accredited school school making it apparently legit but it was actually undercover ice agents who advertised the university on a now defunct website and and their objective was to weed out students who might be trying to obtain student visas fraudulently and to do so they worked with recruiters who were basically weekly paid to attract over six hundred students to the school and all these students transferred from previously accredited school so they were in legitimate programs prior to arriving at the university Farmington so that means that these students were here on legitimate visas. Everything was above board. Yes up until the point that they arrived at the University of Farmington Meden. WHO's getting caught up in the scheme? So it was primarily students from India studying at the graduate level. They were coming on F one student visas and they were coming from accredited universities previously any. US Do we know if all these students thought this was a real school. Some of the students thought that this was legitimate program or at least. That's what they're attorneys are saying right now. So they say that they've been duped by the Department of Homeland Security have admissions and for University of Burlington Career College. It's easy to see how an outsider could mistake the fake university for real one. It was listed on the Department of Homeland Security Websites. Okay so some students may not know that this was a fake school but others may have been into that idea so there's no way to tell how many fraudulent actors were actually actually a part of the scheme. Some students might have seen this as a pay to play scheme where they were essentially paying the tuition fees and the other fees that are associated with enrolling and the university in order to obtain a student visa that would allow them to go in and out of the country freely as they pleased that a popular scheme according to the Department the Homeland Security. It is but we don't have really hard numbers on how many students are abusing the system. But this is the thing that happens. Students will sign up for classes at a school. That won't actually make them come to class. Yes that's what happens. How exactly did this whole thing work? What along the way where? The signs that some students may have picked up up on and others didn't D- University didn't have any physical classrooms. No teachers no curriculum. No classes so Ice Argues that it should have been obvious to the students that they weren't actually enrolled in a university that would have allowed them to maintain legally their student visas but some of them even made attempts to verify that this was a legitimate program and the administrators told them that it was so in that sense. If you're being told that this is an accredited university the administrators are telling you that then. They have no reason to think that it shouldn't have been legitimate but to be clear here's students were signing up for university the didn't have classes presumably. Yes but maybe perhaps foreign students aren't totally clear. Clear on how American universities work how these programs should be administered. Maybe they thought they would be eventually allowed to sign up for online classes. It's unclear exactly how they thought that this could have been illegitimate university. People who worked in the buildings they students constantly asked how to talk to someone about classes. They paid for fuel says No. Some of them didn't even know. So what's GonNa Happen to the people who were sort of caught up in the scheme so at this point a lot of them have been been given the opportunity to leave the country voluntarily. All of their student visas have been revoked In connection to the scheme even if people realize amid the scheme that they they were being duped they might transferred out of the university but those people have still been arrested by ice so the ultimate fact of this could just be that they'll have have to leave the country. They may be out several thousand dollars in tuition that they made it to the University of Farmington. It's now in the Department of Homeland. Security's coffers we don't know what's happening with that money and any chance that they might have it coming back to the. US might be stymied at this point because this deportation Asian or voluntary departure as they call it. which doesn't involve necessarily being escorted on a plane by ICE agents but does involve leaving? The country would basically basically prejudice any further attempts. They would make to re enter the. US does ice to a lot of policing of people who are here on student visas. Is this like a large batch. Watch of their focus. Because these aren't the stories we typically hear about ice going after undocumented immigrants and these students aren't undocumented technically because they have student visas so in recent years about five hundred thousand students have been landing these visas annually. It's not a huge batch of the legal immigrants that are coming here annually and it hasn't historically been a population that isis deciding to go after particularly because these people are here temporarily just to go to school school but the trump administration for whatever reason has decided to make this and enforcement priority for them. So they've been trying to cram crackdown on people who might be it using the system fraudulently but in the scheme. There's really no way of telling who was an actor and who was just sort of an innocent bystander. So ice here you're has set up an entire fake university named at the University of Farmington. Got It accreditation. Through the Department of Homeland Security. Let students enroll let students pay even and is now at least in some cases deporting students for not figuring out that this was a fake a situation. That's the whole scheme here. That's how it looks Jeff. Is this the first time I tried something like this made a whole fake school school so it's actually not the first time and it's certainly not the first administration to carry out. These kinds of policies under Obama similar scheme was set up in two thousand thirteen a university. They call the University of Northern New Jersey and as part of that scheme which was set up by ice the visas over a thousand students were revoked. And there were also indictments of twenty-one other middlemen who are involved so we've seen schemes like this before but with increased attention on ice and movements like abolish ice. which has been amplified by people like Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Cossio Cortez? It's been causing a lot more outrage these these kinds of extraordinary enforcement practices on the part of ice which are also part of a larger scheme to corner immigrants and some policies eh carried out under the trump administration.
