He'll join us at noon, and then Trent Williams at 12 20. He owns Jim So that's on Scott Miller. Dr Probation, so Rip off the knob is we often say One big NBA note that happened just about when we went on the Air. General Mori has signed a five year contract to be the head of basketball ops for the Philadelphia 70. Sixers. Which is interesting in that. Originally Everybody said, Well, they're not gonna trade Simmons. They're not gonna trade indeed. What is this, Darryl? More We want to get a bunch of guys in there 67 and under to Jack the ball up all over the place because Simmons can't shoot indeed. 7 ft. Tall. So what do you think? Well, I mean, when Daryl resigned in Houston, you knew something was curious. And he had a bad year this year. Whether or not you believe with this with his comments about Hong Kong and The tweets that were going on. I guess about a year ago when the envious season was starting And they were going to China. It costs the N B a a lot of money. And Ah, you know, I'm not going to say what he what he tweeted is not accurate, are From his heart, but it it had an impact on his relationship in the N B, A and AA I know that he makes the big move Teo to bring in Russell Westbrook the earlier summer and, you know Chris Paul was obviously aging, but you know, it puts a lot of money and do it and changes the way they play. Capella gets traded middle of the year he goes to a really excessive small ball, where They're not just turning to their chuckwagon lineup featuring Fi J. Tucker. It's center. But there, that's all they do. And Ah, you know, so they and the owner there? A Tilman Fertitta is a bit of a wild card. It's a It's a new ownership group going back. You know Leslie Alexander from years before and He's a hothead, and he wasn't happy. I think that all stamps from the Warriors beating on the year before after Andre got hurt. And the chances that they had or even after Durant got hurt. I was Jews to cop three years ago when I won a couple of years ago, when Durant got hurt, they still couldn't beat the Warriors at home without Durant. So s so I didn't know what was going on. I thought his cachet in the N B. A had fallen off a little bit, and he's kind of an interesting guy, you often said when he was in Houston. That he was going to move on. He was going to be there. So maybe it was the ownership for two to coming in. And They're both had strong guys and he left. But I and my first question is what what's going on without brand Is he just out in Philadelphia completely. And Ah, my second reaction was what they trade Ben Simmons. If he wants to have you know a team like he had a huge did and there's no, It's not like the analytics. They're any different and it's It's ironic because we're You know, analyzing everything The champion Bay Rays have done and you know the whole sabermetrics analytics, community and baseballs. On the line now with what they did last night to two giveaway Game six of the world, Siri's and in the N B, a You know what the Warriors success in the mid range shot of Durant and the Lakers or a good three point shooting chain. But that's not why they won. They made enough to reach when they had to, and I think the bubble helped him. But his mores way of just going. You know, Don Nelson would love it, but the league has caught up to it a lot. On Just not, you know, shooing the The mid range game. So what does he do with Van Simmons? Can they? I mean, Ben Simmons when he finds out this news doesn't go right in the gym and start, you know, chucking up threes. He does it anyway. But I don't know if he's ever gonna have that kind of game. He just doesn't have that. So what? They trade him. I mean, what? Daryl Morey. Trade a guy or is he you know, he went got Russell Westbrook, John, and he's a horrible three point shooter, which I couldn't understand what he wanted to play faster. He wanted to get the ball a hardened, saying it's more. He wanted the double point Guard concept and Paul At that time looked old and slow, and Paul got revitalized, Goingto Casey. I don't know. But it it I did not see this coming. I did not. Ah, kind of thought maybe he would leave Houston. But I don't know I didn't hear any rumors about it. But Where what happens down on brand And what do they do with Vance Simmons are my two main questions now than if you're the Warriors, and that's where I was going with it. Yeah. Warriors, would you want Ben Simmons? What was you? Which would you want that seven? I don't know enough. Obviously, they've done all the research on these guys. But it's such an uncertain draft at the top. It's going to depend on if the Warriors have at number two. You know whether it's Wiseman or ball or Edward's or whatever. I think they would look at it and say Okay, number one. You're getting a cheaper player..

And they have their reasons that transcend Trump it may have started with Trump. You know, but it now is going beyond Trump. And my view has always been there. If Trump had been willing to put on a mask in March. And just basically, said, America, this is something we all need to do, and we need to follow the city's guidance. And, you know, we need to keep our social distance thing if he had a kid If he had explained it as something that we ought to do for the common interest. I don't think they would have been quite a politicization around it, but now it's too late seven months later. And if the president's putting on a mask now it's too late. And in your column, the numbers. The difference between people even now wearing masks and not wearing mask the number of people affected is is really a huge number. It is so the university Washington, which does a lot of the estimating About, you know, potential death down the line. You know, they estimated that between now and the end of the year 95% of the country war math, you would save almost 100,000 lives. Which is pretty incredible. He really is. And you know, you know, the politicization of math has killed a lot of people. I mean, it just happened. Would mask stop. Every death would have stopped every case. Of course not, of course not. But it would stop a lot of them and you know, we would be in a hell of a lot better positions. If we wore masks, and then we are now. Thanks, Joe. That's Joe.

But now everybody else, miss. Not fair. You know, you wanna debate form again? Yes. Oh, What centers Weathers, who knew that he was a chemistry major kind of surprised me that in his article, he talks about the poor chemistry as students. They are not allowed. So apparently your camera c student. You have got a lot of reasons to do lab work and you can't you don't have access to a lab work in these covert times because no one's allowed on campus and he says. Why is a football player any more valuable than a chemistry student or any student who wants to use the library? And who says that this is just what it does is it exposes what we value? And he means by we, the University of Washington, the fans of university Washington football and all that, for some reason, we put them on a kind of pedestal, and I I understand his argument. I don't think I really necessarily agree with it, though, because the one thing you can say about the students that play football. They generate millions and dollars that pay for your slides and a vase for your microscope, and it pays for everything. And it pays for scholarships. And it pays for everything. So you don't want to keep your machine going. Your cash machine which of your football players? So that you can have people go to that college and not pay as much as they would, because the football players are out there getting their butts kicked around and going in for the chemistry classes. So yes, the now the thing is, I don't know that that money goes to the chemistry student because what I've understood is the basketball and football programs pay for all the other sports. Programs, so it's I don't think it's that they actually are paying for the slides using the labs, and what it does do is it raises the profile of the University of Washington, and that's a great waited. Teo do fundraising, you know for the president on, so I do think that there is AH longer game here that Danny is ignoring, But I do think it is interesting that we Seem as a society we value our entertainment or revalue our sports, maybe more than something else.

I was their Tom, Where were you? I was in Seattle, all right? On the ST Louis gun. Couple, 509 They had every right to hold guns on people that broke down their gate. What's wrong with you? And Nick from Marcus is it's interesting that none of these threats were caught on tape. Also, the huge mustard stain on her shirt was impressive. And I mean Sharon, and so Sharon wants to see the manager for that horrible Minnesota accent. John. Sorry I was on a roll. Summer camp 206 I agree with Tom. Hey, Camp Tom Bosco. Always that's place still in business letters and robs and stand with. I also went to can't Don Bosco. In the early 19 seventies, we were limited to three squares per white because the group before us at a teepee war spanning Gloria, 77 Tom, my cousin.

That's all of one thing that was one cloud became a gaucho, taming horses playing guitar and singing sea. We have good lives after we escaped from the That's travails of Don Bosco camp on Netflix, 36 Soap. The red Envelopes with DVDs in the mail aren't just a thing of the past. I still get them because they have a lot of classic films on DVD that aren't available online. That is true. That's great. In fact, I wish Tom would give out more movie recommendations on the show. My favorite commercials, the one where Tom spends nine seconds telling us about what he's watching lately and then does 38 seconds of Comcast's legal disclaimers, Hen.

well the rich are getting richer measure not spending their money absolutely George and the stock market's going up I mean the fed has all but come out and said do you know that it's targeting the stock market wants to go up I'm looking at how even the spending is bad nor is a seventeen percent jump in retail sales but it was from that number looks way better than it is because if you look at the five month total motor vehicles and parts are down ten percent furniture down eighteen percent electronics and appliances down nineteen percent guess what was up Houdin beverage stores up thirteen percent non store retailers think Amazon up sixteen point six percent food and drinking places were down twenty two point three percent that's going to rebound that's going to come back but is it going to come back very strongly if we still have twenty million people who are unemployed and my answer is this is sort of a fake rebound here we're we still have bickering in Congress George over over whether we're going to continue these unemployment insurance benefits at twenty million people who are not also going to go back to work this month George are they so we have a pretty rocky road

"The kids you've worked with aware of any of these privacy concerns only aware we work in something called kids team which is a group of children that come to the university Washington twice a week to co design with us through developed like a really strong relationship with them and I when we talk with them like they they know a lot now again there Seattle so sometimes you know they're a tough call it seems to be quite big in this case but in general so there is there is a sort of far far sort of like the they know what's going on there is that the the sometimes you can say things like companies are watching us but the other hand they also aren't aware of a lot of things and sometimes what we find is that front end of what's showing up is what they look after the kids Sir forget that there's like in the back and they don't realize that there is a back into some of these things and that's where you get Sir complicating tricky when we start setting like what we call creepy technologies are things that are a defining what creepiness means to people with regard to that Josh what we heard from of color we play just a bit ago and from some of our listeners about the kind of profit motive and having their personal data used to make money how concerned with the parents you spoke to that their information their kids information was becoming grist for a capitalistic mill yeah that that is definitely a concern that a that a lot of parents have they they assume Amazon is trying to sell us stuff and and so take that view that you know and and honestly we don't know a lot about how the information is going to be used in the long run we know that on the one hand Alexa listens in it listens and learns from the commands that we give anyone commands don't work learns from those two you know so that they can try to make a lex and more responsive we know that's part of what makes elects a better and better but on the other hand like what other you know Amazon is a big company with lots of different functions it also takes a long term view about you know these kids might be future customers someday you know that when when we are talking Josh about that you said well you know we wouldn't mind if they became because but you're not thinking about that at the very beginning and you can kind of afford to have this really long term via because Amazon is going to be around when these kids grow up I will enjoy Sherman I I would like you to respond to that but I kind of wonder if and correct me if I'm wrong I kind of wonder if that's the wrong approach I wonder if it makes more sense for Amazon to just lean in to the fact that you're using data to sell us products kind of like a Disney Disney has made no bones about the fact that is marketing to your kids you want your kids to watch it's movies watches TV shows bites merchandise and rides theme park rides but it says yes we're marketing your kids were marking your family and we will be the best steward of your children's time and attention and their sensitivities in their sensibilities of anyone else we will build our business on being the most trustworthy space for your kids why not do that with Amazon just admits yeah we need your data and we will be amazing stewards of it what again we listen to our customers and they told us they don't want us advertising to their children and so we actually set about to build a product that doesn't do that not advertising data I still I wearing data through those devices well I guess my question is is first of all children can't buy anything I'm through Amazon systems there's not able to they don't have a credit card they don't have an account we don't allow them to do those things we actually build safeguards to prevent them from doing those and if a child wants to listen to music and their parent wants and share a subscription to music we want to give that ability to the parents of the child listen to the song we would never ask the child to to buy that and I don't think that that's going to it which is serving up that request were were answering that that that need that customers had to listen to maybe Sarker maybe something a bit more engaging and that's how we approach things I think we might be talking past one another I'm I I hear you in terms of not buying products I told you that yeah but even the data about the questions that a child asks goes into a database which say that the Alexa system doesn't know how to answer it it then learns how to answer it which makes it more useful which makes it more marketable which helps you sell more echo dots which helps Amazon make money data makes you money well where the question is not a real crime in that but I I I I'm I'm not I'm not trying to dispute that we try to make our products better or trying to make sure we can answer those questions in that effort at an adult you can be able to help them find the next thing that they want to buy but if a child is asking a question about unicorns or or rainbows or you know why sky blue eyed I don't know how that comes back to it transaction at any I just don't see it personally we don't think about it we don't approach things that way at all professor yep on the flip side of this I wonder how much of that is on parents to be aware of this I understand that parents or some of some parents are very concerned about this about the nature of digital data but on one hand they'll be no point to something like Amazon echo dot because it's something they can see the see that devices collecting my data and yet they let their kids have Facebook accounts and be on Instagram which days you know you're actually right about that like you know we set out to study creepiness and like what it meant for families and children we found out like you know parents mediators between the technology and the fear is that children have and oftentimes children you know it's kind they they learn through what we call vicarious learning that they don't have to actually XP exposed to the fear they just learn from their parents and so or or or vice versa they they love the positive things from their parents as well so when we asked children like you know our smartphones creepy you know and the one of them said no and we asked why and they said look my parents use it all the time of course it can't be creepy my parents use it all the time someone sends you see that you know the same thing with these devices like voice assistance like if I'm using it all the time it can't be but then on the other hand we Austin the child the same question like your these sort of consumer devices creepy and and the one of the kids are like well yeah totally and we asked him why and he said like well it's because like my parents put like a little sticker on the front of the the laptop camera and we asked like why do you think your parents did that and then he said well it's to keep the robbers course and so you know and so in the same you know consumer device we would say you know so kids are learning they learn a lot from like how parents are using devices and that's why in our studies you know we totally encourage conversations thank you note this looking at things and one of the reasons why we did the creepy study was it's kind of an odd question to ask kids is apparently do you think are devices are creepy in rather it's a lot easier to ask more specific kinds of questions like Hey what do you think about a relationship with this device you know is it helping or hurting a relationship where do you think your date at those or where do you think what do you what do you think it's unpredictable like what's this divide like can we can we control what do you think and I think those are the kinds of questions that parents can ask their kids rather than say like with evil works good but rather nuanced questions that really gets to the heart of of what it is to be a parent and working with their children Josh will make Nichols what about the parents you talk to I can imagine that whether or not the echo dot is a convenient boogie man for the much larger data issues that we have that we still have wrap their heads around as a parent I imagine there are plenty who just feel kind of caught in the middle of this sea change that they're just getting swept the white way by and they're just trying to do their best every day to raise good kids yeah and and I think a lot of parents have a little bit of sort of a technological PTSD related to just having gone through this thing with phones where they sort of seen phones and how they've transformed how their kids act and how sometimes phones can lead us to withdraw and and sometimes parents are just placing the same fears on smart smart speaker technology when it comes along and thinking like is this going to be the same thing but there are actually a lot of differences between how we interact with phones and how we interact with with smart speakers I mean I'm there is it you can't you know you don't scroll endlessly through read it on on an Alexa device is just not something you can do here because it's in the voice round your interactions are more assertive curtailed and are more sort of in the public realm of the house you know the voice of sphere or whatever so it yeah there's there's some concern there among parents but it's we're still sort of figuring out how rational those concerns are as is this technology so now I do want to note that a lot of you have sent us stories about using these devices and they were tremendously helpful Christine emailed when my grandson was young he tried to talk with Alexa his speech still wasn't too good but his manners were great and he made sure to use the word please Alexa apologize for not being able to understand what he was asking but said she really appreciated how polite he was I just thought it was the cutest thing and it warmed my heart marta emailed I have a medically fragile child sometimes when I'm filling syringes I notice I'm running low on something I can ask Alexa to remind me to order meds later without having to stop what I'm doing I also have used it to remind me when his line needs to be flushed when nurses are coming the dates.

Amazon systems there's not able to they don't have a credit card they don't have an account we don't allow them to do those things we actually build safeguards to prevent them from doing those and if a child wants to listen to music and their parent wants to share a subscription to music we want to give that ability to the parents of the child to listen to the song we would never ask the child to to buy that and I don't think that that's going to it we're just serving up that request were were answering that that that need that customers had to listen to baby shark or maybe something a bit more engaging and that's how we approach things I think we might be talking past one another I'm I I hear you in terms of not buying products I told yet that yeah but even the data about the questions that a child asks goes into a database which say that the Alexa the system doesn't know how to answer it it then learns how to answer it which makes it more useful which makes it more marketable which helps you sell more echo dots which helps Amazon make money data makes you money well where the question is not a real crime in that but I I I trust I'm not I'm not in the room I am not trying to dispute that we try to make our products better or trying to make sure we can answer those questions in that effort at an adult you can be able to help them find the next thing that they want to buy but if a child is asking a question about unicorns or or rainbows or that you know why the sky blue eyed I don't know how that comes back to it transaction at any I just don't see it personally we don't think about it we don't approach things that way at all professor yep on the flip side of this I wonder how much of that is on parents to be aware of this I understand that parents or some up some parents are very concerned about this about the nature of digital data but on one hand they'll be no point to something like Amazon echo dot because it's something they can see the see that devices collecting my data and yet they let their kids have Facebook accounts and be on Instagram which are looking more days you know you're actually right about that like you know we set out to study creepiness in like what it meant for families and children we found that let you know parents mediators between the technology and the fears that children have and oftentimes children you know it's kind they they learn through what we call vicarious learning that they don't have to actually XP exposed to the fear they just learn from their parents and so or or or vice versa they they learn the positive things from their parents as well so when we asked children like you know our smartphones creepy you know and the one of them said no and we asked why in the select my parents use it all the time of course it can't be creepy my parents use it all the time someone sends you see that you know the same thing with these devices like voice assistance like if I'm using it all the time it can't be but then on the other hand we Aston their child the same question like your these sort of consumer devices creepy and and the when the kids are like well yeah totally and we asked him why and he said like well it's because like my parents put like a little sticker on front of the the laptop camera and we asked like why do you think your parents did that and then he said well it's to keep the robbers course and so you know and so it does seem you know consumer device we would say you know so kids are learning they learn a lot from like how parents are using devices and that's why in our studies you know we totally encourage conversations thank you note this looking at things and one of the reasons why we did the creepy study was it's kind of an odd question to ask kids is apparently do you think are devices are creepy it in rather it's a lot easier to ask more specific kinds of questions like Hey what do you think about a relationship with this device you know is it helping or hurting a relationship where do you think your data goes or where do you think what do you what do you think it's unpredictable like what system I'd like to read to me control what do you think and I think those are the kinds of questions that parents can ask their kids rather than say like what's evil or it's good but rather nuanced questions that really gets to the heart of of what it is to be a parent and working with their children Josh will make Nichols what about the parents to talk to I can imagine that whether or not the echo dot is a convenient boogie man for the much larger data issues that we have that we still at wrap their heads around as a parent I imagine there are plenty who just feel kind of caught in the middle of this sea change that they're just getting swept away by way by and they're just trying to do their best every day to raise good kids yeah and and I think a lot of parents have a little bit of sort of a technological PTSD related to just having gone through this thing with phones where they sort of seen phones and how they've transformed how their kids act and how sometimes phones can lead us to withdraw and and sometimes parents are just placing the same fears on smart smart speaker technology when it comes along and thinking like is this going to be the same thing but there are actually a lot of differences between how we interact with phones and how we interact with with smart speakers I mean there is it you can't eat you know you don't scroll endlessly through read it on on an Alexa device is just not something you can do here because it's in the voice round your interactions are more a sort of curtailed and are more sort of in the public realm of the house you know the voice of sphere or whatever so it the yeah there's there's some concern there among parents but it's we're still sort of figuring out how rational those concerns are as is this technology so now I do want to note that a lot of you have sent us stories about using these devices and they were tremendously helpful Christine emailed when my grandson was young he tried to talk with Alexa his speech still wasn't too good but his manners were great and he made sure to use the word please Alexa apologized for not being able to understand what he was asking but said she really appreciated how polite he was I just thought it was the cutest thing and it warmed my heart marta emailed I have a medically fragile child sometimes when I'm filling syringes I notice I'm running low on something I can ask Alexa to remind me to order meds later without having to stop what I'm doing I also have used it to remind me when his line needs to be flushed when nurses are coming the dates.

"university washington" Discussed on News Radio 1190 KEX

"Classes in every high school in America so people understood how small businesses work they're not printing money these people are not getting rich you often they just make on okay ways to get the bills paid until someday they sell the business than they can retire okay if their business is successful but the idea that everybody was small business just has so much money and make so much money that they can just pay whatever you think they are paid that's insane sign ninety five percent of America's small business people people don't understand that because they get pitch this bull crap by these politicians here's a guy is a CEO and executive chef of the Manhattan based Lebanese eateries William Lilly box anyway there's a bunch of says it rising wages have forced him to cut ours for is a hundred and eighty employees yank labor intensive dishes from the menu and cut back on staff education events like wind seminars that's because new regulations require that employees receive tips can no longer spend more than twenty percent of the time on work that doesn't involve interacting with customers so I can't even trainer educate my staff the way I want to anymore. the restaurant owner agrees it it's been a social injustice that wages haven't kept up with the cost of living. arm I'd like to pay my my employees a lot more than I do but I just can't he said. because he is great a. so in the liberal Washington post reporting on a study commissioned by the liberal city. also of Seattle. on their minimum wage raise boasting up to fifteen dollars an hour. are they mention the cuts in pay rolls putting off new hiring reducing hours and firing workers the cost to low wage workers in Seattle outweighed the benefits by a ratio of three to one according to the study which again was commissioned by the old liberal city council. the and the university Washington did it. I just it's troubling to me that people don't know enough about the very very basics of business and economics that they're sold these unicorn in schemes over and over again. it always has this result. you know the guy you just quoted said it's a moral and terrible that wages haven't risen it's just a function of economics and and this is been the reality through all human history and if you're on the rough end of it it's rough me in I don't deny that but you just have to figure out how to improve your life and how to make more money we're all economic beasts remember what Vincent used to yell or old producer was that he used to work at McDonald's all right yeah. right if you don't feel like making enough money yeah and and the really interesting thing and this gets back to that HL Mencken study or quote that I hit you with at the end the last hour I'm. politicians don't have any particular talent for running a government their talent is forgetting in holding office and the main way they do that is to search out a group who want something and promised to give it to them and nine times out of ten that promises worth nothing well obviously the strategy is you go to low pay workers say I'm gonna get you high pay. and it promises usually worth nothing and to the extent that they do carry it through. it impact people negatively three two one but people keep falling for the scheme out here I don't I don't know what to do about it other than pointing it out on the radio show right on the whole study estimates the average low wage worker in the city lost a hundred and twenty five dollars a month because of the hike in the minimum wage that's incredible I'm sorry I just didn't know that's incredible big fat you know your could help is if people on the other side of it Republicans or whoever make the argument did a better job of making the argument brought it up more often and do a better job of making the art right that they're bad at it too well it's like there's no group more devastated by illegal immigration and low wage workers in America particularly black low wage workers. but nobody can get their political act together to make that point effectively I guess or node I don't know if people don't believe it or you know in the case of illegal immigration both sides are actually in favor of it even as they tell you they're not so now they're not going to nail it down to carefully and ruin the scam you can't have the issue if yes solve the issue. mentioned this a little bit earlier there's an article in The Washington Post the joker discourses coming here's what you need to know the movie the joker's coming out there's a belief in a number of circles that this is going to be a lot of attention for a lot of different reasons. newsy attention not just what a great movie I laughed I cried yeah he yeah I keep hearing that people are afraid that it'll cost shoot ins or that it's glorifying that sort of thing a rebel I got some info for you on a company because I'd really like to have a really strong opinion in advance and be having not seen a really late on law yeah and the yell at people and call them bad people if they disagree. always greets angrily at them needless to say it's good to have that plan and all that other stuff on the way in the Armstrong get issue. on the first of the jingle ball my true love gave to me. performing at jingle ball on the second of the jingle ball my true love gave to me. are going to be there on the third of jingle ball my true love.
