Interview With the Rusty Pilot, Pat Brown

"What's up. Wally bobby how are you. I'm great at this week. We are all about the rusty pilot with us again on the show. Two-time guest pat brown the texas. You can fly ambassador. Welcome back to the show pat. Thanks bob appreciate over three. Pardon me this is number three visit for this is number three or visit than the live show and now rusty pilot so pats men a friend in a i would call him a co worker through through the flight school that i own and recently we had the opportunity to rusty pilot seminar together. We did and i learned a lot as a not so rusty pilot. But someone who doesn't get fly all the time and thought to be a great opportunity to put together a show. Maybe two parts depending on how long this conversation goes to talk about. How do we get a lot of aviators back into the right seat. Left seat if they have been flying in a while pat. You do this all the time. What what are some of the things that you would like to share with people that are out there that may have not flown in a year or more. Well you know. I think Obviously i worked for a oh. Pa so that's going to be the first top of mind thing and the rusty pilot program that we that we offer It we can We do a number of seminars. every month These are webinars right. Now we're back to doing live things but that would be the the primary first of all decide that you want to get back in the air and then take advantage of the rusty pilots seminar. Because that provides you the minimum that sixty one dot fifty-six which is the regu- talks about flight reviews. That's the that requires that takes care of the minimum one hour of ground school that required for For your flight review In reality if you've been out for awhile it's probably gonna take more than an hour and even even when i'm doing these rusty pilot seminars. Tell people look when you go and hire local flight instructor to fly with you. They're still want to sit down and talk to you a little bit and make sure that you remember all these cool things that we just talked about right so that that would be probably the biggest one right there but they gotta make the decision. They want to get back into it.

Why You Should Seek out Marginal Weather Days for Flight Training

"What's up wally. Bobby how are you fantastic. This week. We're taking on a topic that i've thought a lot about. I know we've talked about it more than once. But we are going to talk about why you as a student of whatever you're at and your aviation career should seek out marginal weather days with a flight instructor. Absolutely i think I i worked on my instrument. Now it's been almost three years ago Speaking of three years ago yesterday was my three year anniversary of buying this place all right. Well congratulations thanks. So about three. Years ago i finished my instrument rating or so but While i was in training the instructor that i had was really adamant that we get some extra time. And i've spoken about it. I was really an apprehensive pilot Young in my aviation career. I didn't feel real comfortable with everything. I that's just kind of scared me but i think the fact that he was so adamant that we do it and then we got it. While i was training for my instrument with some of the most valuable time i ever got. I believe when i took my check with you. I had something like eight hours of actual time which to someone listening. Who's not there yet my nothing but how many hours do you have to have wally to take your check. Ride in actual conditions zero. Wow zero actual time to qualify for an instrument rating got up forty hours of instrument. time all of which can be Simulated under the hood wearing a fogle or whatever view limiting device. You choose and some of it can be in a simulator. It's you know i. I use a little analogy of and this is not really totally accurate but You know if if you wanted to someone to play football you wouldn't teach him how to play basketball and say here's the ball. Go play football. You know you'd you'd actually show how to play football the better when there might be. You don't do all your learning playing flag football and then go play.

"You know everybody. I'm going to say Seven years in. We've never had anybody crashes the door. I'm used to coming in from that way. Yeah well it's still just a door like if it's a good point. Yeah i mean you go through one door. You should be able to get the most i. Actually i'm bummed out 'cause i when you came out. I thought we should have done that. You know sometimes when people hit their first home run they None of the players clap. Applaud. yeah. I should've told the crew don't clap when out. That would've been a little that would been fun Wally thank you so much for being here now. A lot of people think you just hold cue cards. You actually have a company and you do cards for a lot of different shows. And i wanna ask real quick. You had to come up with a name for a company that in past everything it did and it had to be A name that would immediately make people think that guy obviously knows what he's doing right. You went through hundreds of names. I remember doing it. Can you please tell everybody what you came. Up with New york city cue cards probably one hundred as part the first thing that can you remind that was like that's perfect. What about cue. Cards by. Wally other Tell everybody about cue cards by. Wally cars by wally. I started during the pandemic. When i wasn't wasn't working i was bored. I was sitting around at home. And i thought i can't cards for celebrities like yourself and other people want personalized cue cards for people at home. They can't go to birthday parties and they couldn't go to parties. It was kind of a perfect time to do it. And these are the iconic. Snl cue-card same cue cards written by written all by me. Yeah which. I was shocked to think people would want but they did and every time i sent one out and i looked at it before. I said that it was like. They're really going to be disappointed. Because it's just really marker on a piece of cardboard. Yeah but every time they got it they were like. This is the greatest thing i've ever gotten in my life and they loved it. It's really nice when someone is willing to admit that their product is just marker on a piece of card. I mean i think that's one of the things we love about you. Honesty thing. I to say is you know this is no joke. That cue-card by wally is a big deal. I my dressing room have my last. Snl i have the cue-card From good night at weekend. Update and sort of famously. A lotta cast members want a card and a lot of hosts. Take them home with them. Yeah i'll said. I'll put together a package usually for host and sometimes say hey. Do you want some souvenir. So i just sent. It was funny. I sent carrie mulligan a package of her. Cue cards and then i did elon. Musk show and i got home. And there was a note henri letter from ireland. I thought i was from somebody else. After the show and i was really tired and i was reading it and i thought still thought it was from somebody else from kerry morgan thanking me for sending cards. Because like she was like. I felt like it was a dream but having these kind of make it feel like it was reality so it was really nice. Who's the irish person you thought you were getting a letter from laugh. Wait for a letter from karen i. There was an irish guy that that i connected with me on facebook. Said he was coming to see this show and it was the week after we shut down for the pandemic so couldn't come over so i sent him an irish. You made a joke about rs. People and drinking like normally do and i sent him those cards and i thought this was a thank you note for that. Oh that's very nice. That's why i was confused. But i wasn't a joke. That was based on something in the news. Oh okay just like ad hominem attacks on our friends a cross the seas so this is i wanna talk because actually do think you know one of the questions. I get asked a lot. We used to do acuna when we'd have an audience here and Thing that people are genuinely fascinated by is. Why does our show us cue cards. Instead of a teleprompter now the puke erred shows. As i understand it. Are they all kind of come from the tree. Jimmy uses cue cards conan Use cue cards. You did him week yards. And i think it is. That's how we That's how we came up when hosts coming. Seo a lot of times. It's the first time they've used cards. Yeah so what is the first thing. And i've watched this happen but explain to people the first thing you have to do in a host and of ours acute guys i just i i asked how their eyesight is because that's the most important thing if they can see all right so i'll show them a normal size printing card then i'll show them a little bit bigger size card just so we can get get off on the right side and then i've asked work cards before and most of them haven't so it's just a basic talking about you know seeing them all right and then you know the director of snl between me and him they will talk to them about more specific things about how to play them and you know where to look at them and don't memorize anything that kind of thing and have you had. Sometimes you have a host who thinks they're not gonna need cards and then over the course of the week. Yeah matthew mcconaughey was the nicest guy but he was like. I'm not gonna was no problem. I'll be over here. You know if you know. And then by friday afternoon he was like so where are you going to be data and then i was going to be over there and he was okay just in case i need you and then on saturday he was like all right. Where are you going to be. Three sketching any thanked me. After nito pa they apologize. We don't need to apologize. He was like. I didn't understand how inclusive the cars were. How much a change. And that's the thing you can't you can't memorize on. The show is that there's no changes you just handed so much. Yeah you had a moment that i always recall fondly with charles barkley. That was a saturday rehearsal. Yeah and do you wanna tell everybody what went down. So chris cowan. The stage manager came over to me and said charles wants to play a practical joke in the cast. He's going to pretend to be mad at you. No one knows about this but you music you good with that and i was like yeah. Sure why not you know. We went out there for a sketch and right in the middle of the sketch charles breaks character and he starts yelling at me so wally. I can't hold the cards still. I can't see him. He's either and he and he stormed off and people were like. I fully bought it. People like john will forte actually yelled hit them to charles charles given took took umbrage a little. I'm know that meant that. He thought it was true. He finally always gonna finally get him get. What's coming to. So charles stopped halfway stage then saddam just busted and everybody laughed and it was great. I was beat red. Even though i knew about it. Everyone's yelling at me. And then i went over to what was what the hell will go. I was just trying to defuse the situation. I remember was like well. I think the part that. I can't believe all these years later is i'm like i can't believe charles barkley was such a good actor by the way i didn't yell hit them but at the same time like if he had started hitting you i would not done well they mostly because i love you and you do sometimes move to move the cue cards while you know one of the reasons. I want to be sincere for a second that we don't use a teleprompter is We have a deep. A friendship been been holding cards and i always say like ninety five percent of the words that i have said on television over a career. That's almost twenty years long now Our cards even holding up and And I remember that when i did the golden globes. We had you there just in case Standing in a tuxedo next to the l. a. Prompter just in case something went wrong. Never sure that succeeded. By the way you never returned in i kept. That's okay right. Well very unfair you to say it now. In front of a this is wally. You can see him most nights most nights on late night. Thank you so much for being here. action again. We do.

Checkride Turbulence And 3 Books

"What's up. Walling a bobby how are you. I'm great nother week. 'nother show we Shows grown a lot and we want to think about the listen to the show. We are back to another check right episode. This is something. We put together that we're branding or calling. Check ride turbulence taking the bumps check rides and this week. We want to talk about really something basic to help you. Prepare for the check ride That that wally sees too few people doing and that. I enforced here about some students that come to us from other schools. Don't use these books on a regular basis and as we become commercial pilot's probably think of more but a student pilots. You should have and be aware of three big things as it relates to flying. There's obviously more but these are three things for the check. Ride the p. h. The acs and the foreign name. And if you were to bring those three books to your check ride and actually know how to use them know. What's in them. I think you'd be surprised how easy that check ride. They would go would you. Would you agree. Well absolutely i. i remember my first I grew up in an aviation family. I flew with my father quite a bit as a as a very young Young little boy. But i took my. I what i call my first real flying lesson on august. Thirty first nineteen eighty-one so almost forty years ago and it was in a tomahawk piper tomahawk. Who was two five four nine alpha and member walking The the i fly. We flew for about an hour and we walk back into the flight. School the f. b. l. And i remember my instructor taking me right up to the counter and there's a little display case there and he said you need to get that book right there and you need to learn it now. I have already done private pilot. Ground school so i already had a copy of the f. a. r. a. m. and You know. I had a jepson Private pilot book and so i was Well on my way. But i remember him saying okay. You need to buy that book and you need to know everything in it. And so that night i remember going home and opening up the po h. And starting to remember it To memorize it and learn it and you know. I remember learning the menu. The propeller manufacturer was a seventy eight inch propeller fixed pitch. And i'm i'm thinking to myself. Well okay he said. I needed to learn it so you know what that meant on that day did you. Did you instantly know what all that Probably not probably not. But i did. I learned it And nowadays I i went back. And i think of my career my aviation career and how many check rides. I've taken over my career. And i i don't know how many it is but it's a lot and i don't think i have ever taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not have a personal copy of the po h whether it be in print or digitally I went to my bookshelf. The other day and i found that tomahawk manual. I still have it. it's again. It's over forty years old. I have a a beechcraft baron manual. I have a beechcraft duchess. I've bonanza manual. I have one for a a warrior and they're old but they're they're still good information and a mess still valid and of course with the airlines You know the issue you manuals and back in the day used to be paper manuals but now it's all digitally transmitted the ipad so that makes it very nice but again i have never taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not own the manual to And you know so. What are you studying the manolo. The peo- h we're talking about here So what do you study well you know obviously limitations It's more knowing where it's more knowing how to use the manual then knowing what's in it And and i tell people man you know if you're just gonna spend ten minutes getting an overview of the manual. Maybe the table of contents for each chapter might be a thing just so you know what's in there. Yeah and we'll we'll show some of my lack of pilots. When i was a student you know. And and how i got smarter as i got more proficient in probably happens everybody but i fly. Our one eighty two a lot now flat a lot with my family. I check the fuel Obviously a lot i have. A dipstick tells me how much fuels in that and recently I think i asked a rampart or somebody to check that for me before i went then i checked it again before i went in the numbers aren't the same that i had asked for and i thought that was a little bit odd But they they they want and did that with the dipstick and they they had the wrong dipstick of course but i asked him. Do you know in the ph where to look at. How many gallons are in the tank because they had a dipstick said a different number of gallons in that particular tank and this is a student pilot who wants to learn and i wanted to teach them and also teach my staff as well as saint. Thomas said where do we look. Let's go pull out the peo- h. And look at it and it was funny. They jumped towards the back and performance in the fuel system. And all these other places but as you talk about limitations there's a pretty good summary right up in the fourth or fifth page that drives about what each tank has in it and that's a quick way to verify and to your point about knowing how to use the book i don't necessarily need to know every plane and every tank size and everything at an airport but if i'm going to go fly that plane i better know where to find out how much fuel it can hold.

Where Conversational Interfaces Belong in Banking - with Shankar Narayanan

"So shankar. I wanted to start off talking about what elements of workflows within banking where we can really apply conversational interfaces today. I think there's a lot of claims about ai taking over customer service or some other functions but of course it's more nuanced than app when you take a look at where your technologies being applied and what you see in the landscape. How would you summarize wear conversational interfaces fit in in banking right. So there's a lot of hype around conversational So i would like to break that particular meant we are on the very early stages of conditionally. I am in the technologies just evolving as long so in terms of in banking. I think the key use case for conditionally is of several but let me talk about the customer engagement side am banks are looking at cutting costs on call centers and reputation calls which comes into the call center they move into some form of a flow for chat bots and chad votes has to be intelligent enough to understand that alonso's and respond appropriately the challenge. Which we've been seeing and which most of the companies thunder companies are evolving from celebre. Give you an example. This has been restarted. This company was that everything's moved conversation and unstructured data. And we just happening where you have people chatting or come on what they can ask anything. Because there's no structured work or the zone many shropshire that they can ask anything. So you'll you'll heavy lifting is done by your systems in entirely to understand. The piece has to be good enough to understand the intent and appropriate the answer Their tools at one is banks have to be pretty strict in terms of how they respond just to make sure that the brand is kept so the way. If if it's an ai which is open to training or training without any human interface. It can this phone and get trained and If based on property may give a wrong response so if we need to have a better control on that and stock has to be built in that so what we are seeing or the bureau of let me give you an example right when we started in twenty seven twenty eight when we launched our first services with a bank the workload pretty structured the opportunity impact build a lot of variations on radiance fall the the intense again the stroke of the nlp to understand how pavilions for that to respond a car in the food has to happen is let me give an example if i make a query that hey there's my checkbook i applied for it guest today so you may have multiple variants which built in and the system understands what you intend hits and response to it. We launched. We had of art. Sixty thousand interactions per day mid some of the banks on viet launched in india. Where the there are twenty million customers and the operational team was overwhelmed. Because you can't keep having team billions so we have to build a deep learning mortar so that it auto trains and the billions auto bill so this my team both so there was a lot of learning which we act do as we each rated in canonisation layer journey the customer engagement side. That's the sign the law of other use cases which is emerging will the last few years especially in a machine comprehension whether market documents which banks have and. Let's assume that you are a relationship manager and you just want to know that on. How is the apple Gonna be doing tomorrow. And what does the cio report. Amancio information office of has created and the relationship manager doesn't have time to read through it so you have a reading the document which is being fed understanding the intense and comprehending it and you can quit any queries and it will not give up particular on servile pick relevant answers and showcase whether human gan understand it and pick up the knossos. It's such plus plus right. So i see that as a segment which we are working on with some max banks so using a for internal processes you have the rpm which is basically. That's a separate were to complete version. But in terms of con- additionally is fell focus on you. See a lot of use gives us or hr all the mundane tasks which people have to communicate with. A human is being moved onto box or workflow base os and that starts the shift which is happening. And we're seeing that. I have data which shows the in fact last month a one of the banks did six million interactions in a month. Or the because it's amazing but the final. Wally masur doing now just to clarify chocolate. This is six million internal interactions. You're talking about this. hr faculty here. No no no. No your customer writ large of a lincoln howard phasing customer actions retail banking iraq jumps rea-. Now that makes sense humans out there but just imagine a call center will not be able to have that kind of scalable volume now. There are lots of unique interactions which are happening which banks looking through. So i'll give you an example while the banks had to adam. Api just tell where the credit card is going to be delivered on which day just going to be delivered because they didn't have the use case but customer Asking that i applied for credit card. Where is it. I haven't received it so bank said okay. I don't want this to go to the call center. I want to based on customers asking these questions. Why don't i give a particular times time kind of thing where i can tell where the where the credit card is share not share so what is happening with conversation is if banks can leverage and i think banks are slowly understanding the scale of it

Flying The Aircraft

"What's wally. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good this week. We're going to cover a kind of a potpourri of things that we were talking about as it relates to flying the aircraft. Maybe not letting the aircraft fly you. But maybe you flying the aircraft Try and share some of our tips and tricks or maybe your wisdom With some of the pilots that are out there listening to us Talking about a number of things so this all came about because we were brainstorming on things to talk about looking at everybody's kind of topics that they had written in to a statistic about and we stumbled across one that was talking about leveling off or tips for leveling off I remember. I remember when i was a private pilot My circle used to tell me all over and over and over again level off before you touch anything else. And i think one day click when he finally told me. We're gonna always do it in this order. We're gonna pitch power and trim. And i've heard that saying many many times since then but i think that's what made a really click for me. Why is why is leveling off in that order so important wally. And how many times do you see it down the wrong way. I see done wrong. A lot In you know we're under the airspace here in At this airport so as as flying with applicants and students. When i do some flight instructing a lot of times we just need to get out from underneath the bravo or or at least to the Under the four thousand foot shelf so we're just Just trying to get out of the way and we want to get to a place in a fairly expeditious manner and So basically You know a lot of times you know have the applicant maybe climbing and maintain two thousand fly heading of such and such. And i'll tell them i says listen. We just need to get out of the the airspace and we just need to go about twenty miles up here and Inevitably they will You know it as they're approaching two thousand feet. I'll see their hand over there on the throttle and they pull the throttle back and word about nineteen hundred and fifty feet and we've got throttle pulled back to maybe twenty two hundred twenty one hundred. Rpm something like that and the airplane. is is just struggling to climb and then when we finally do level off You know they're you know we've got a very high pitch up attitude and we're doing very very slower speed so You know all you have to do is just just get up there and as you said pitch power trim you know immediately. Just just put push the nose over and zero out the climb rate and watch the airspeed increase and then when it does increase. I'm you know and then pull your power back to your desired power setting and just keep in mind What i see with with is that most applicants is they're they're just used to flying slow and You know when we log time in her logbook were logging time. We're not logging miles All the requirements are based on flight. Time so go and slow is actually a a good thing for for the most part most of the time But when you actually get out and you're using the airplane as as a tool to get places there might be situations where you wanna go fast. You need to get there quicker. You wanna get there before the the fbi closes and you can't get fuel or or or whatever you just you just need to get there faster. You've maybe you have to use the restroom so getting there. Faster might be a good thing. So you know when you get into that phase of your flying career if you will You're going to have options. The airplanes don't have one speed much like your car. You can draw down the highway at sixty five. Seventy five eighty five Obviously faster speeds. You're going to get there quicker and you're probably gonna burn more feel Slower speeds more economical from fuel standpoint. But it's gonna take you a little bit more time. And i think as we've talked about this off the air and and as part of the show. It took years for me to start really thinking about this from the standpoint of going somewhere or whatever mission i might be on. What's going to be best for me in this mission whether it's time whether it's fuel whether it's a combination of both I probably wasn't looking at the performance charts three years ago like i do today hence private or my instrument training because it's always whether it's right or wrong. It's almost always about the training effort right. We're working on. The mission is the training task. We're going to shoot these approaches and we're gonna work. We fly to that place. We shoot that and that's probably mostly in the hundred ninety not range right but we're not worried about twenty three ended. Rpm's this level of lean this level of mixture. We're worried about just doing that. Approach right then once we get done with all the test taking all the Examiner time then. We start flying places

10 Things Student Pilots Do Wrong

"What's up wally bobby. How are you doing great another week. Another episode we love doing these shows for. Y'all hopefully. You're enjoying them are. We've got a number of new five star reviews on itunes and other platforms. If you're enjoying the show please take time to Write us a review and if we should be doing something different or better don't hesitate to reach out and let us know that as well lots of good questions and ideas for the show coming in also and someone said something about Us covering some of the top mistakes that student pilots make and lo and behold. We found an article. And we're gonna we're gonna borrow this article and talk about our thoughts on some of these things in flight magazine. Which is the texaco flight. Training magazine from the ao pa. Still the one that i get imprint. I much enjoy it. has a lot of good things in it as a relates to flight training. So if you're not a member of the go register you'll get the magazine for free either imprint of electronic but way back in january of two thousand eighteen There was an article written ten things ten mistakes. That student pilots do wrong. And we're going to talk about those while the examiner. I know you see a lot of things that go wrong. let's jump right in. We've we've done some of these topics but we'll we'll go through all ten of them. What's number ten number ten pertains to checklists and lonely appalled. We have done a An episode on the usage It is something that is required to be graded or or evaluated. Rather i should say on a check ride Pretty much on on all the landings. All all the takeoffs and everything down there in in One of the elements that i'm supposed to be looking at as proper use of checklists and You know it's pretty simple. If if you don't use a checklist you're obviously not properly using it. So i see Occasionally on on check. Rides that that applicants. Are you know especially for our landing checklist. They're just using gump's and they're going through it and they're going through their mind. But there's not a checklist anywhere close And that's that's really a bad habit pattern I and i know Maybe a cessna one seventy two especially a fuel injected one where carburetor heat is not Introduced to the the scenario. There's really not a whole lot to do As far as landing. You know as far as Checklist items But it's it's a habit pattern it something that is required and it something expected When you get a job plan a big airplane especially at an airline. Checklists are are used. They're used every time You know. I fly big airplanes and some of our checklists. Only have three items on them. And i have a memorized. But i still pull out the checklist and i look at it and i read it and i i respond to it appropriately so it is a big item. You know you're not gonna fly the same airplane all the time. You may fly. An airplane now has cal flaps. You may be flying. Fuel injected one seventy two. And you're used to that but today you're flying an end model and you've got carburetor so you got carburetor heat to be considered and that's all on the checklist Landing lights Just just everything. That's on the checklist is it's there for for a reason so you know it's something that that We we need to do better with you. And i think as a student pilot when i was training you i did get lulled into this fact that i'm flying saint planes. They don't the school when i was going here. Only had one seventy two. So i was always flying a one. Seventy two all tricycle fixed gear aircraft. You could get lulled into that. But i've flown a lot of different types of aircraft. Now and if i only thought of those items on one seventy two n p models than if i did like you said flu anything else that i could get myself in trouble or hurt pretty quick right so number. Nine on. This list is poor weather. Planning i find that to be something that I find myself chasing people down talking about on a regular basis at the flight. School people learning how to fly. They wanna go. They wanna go And they just i don't. I don't think as much as we talk about it. I still don't think students understand. The dangers of what weather can do to us. And that weather as europe pilot and you fly weather is not necessarily the same three or four miles from here. We can see here. Might not be what. What's going on three or four miles away And it's it's shocking. I think i've told the story of trying to fly to brenham to see my dad. Not that far away didn't do a weather briefing or really understand all about the weather. Pass this airport and get out there and be a wall of clouds just five or ten miles away and have to do you know quote unquote a holding pattern out there for for a thirty minute time. They would burn off but they never burned off. And i wasted a lot of gaffes in a lot of my time Trying to get somewhere. That i could have solved for that. If i would've just looked at the weather

Interview With Conversation Design Institute co-founder And CEO Hans van Dam

"Odds van damme. Welcome to the voice by podcast. Thank you so much for having me. Okay so you are. The head of the conversation design institute. Why don't you tell the listeners. A little bit more about what that is just to get them started and then we'll talk a little bit more about how that all came to be. Yeah so conversation design institute. What we do is really recognize develop and promote the role of the conversation designer. So we sort of envisioned at every enterprise in the world is going to have a department. That's going to work on a assistance whether it's chat bots voice assistance and are all going to have people designing these conversations. Deploying them and managing them So we really recognize that as a serious profession and together with the industry. Really try to figure out you know who's going to be working at department. What's the skill set that they need. And then we develop content for that so we have courses. We have a certification program And that's really how we try to position ourselves in the market as the leading training and certification institute for designing versions. Okay yeah that's great okay so for the listeners. Now they have that context. But you didn't just arrive at the conversation designed institute is like the first thing you've ever done so tell me a little bit about how you how the conversation zayn is came to be but like your career and how you move forward. You were just mentioning to me. You thought when you were younger pre university that you thought you might be a writer That's straight into economics. And and i think writing came back a little bit. Yeah that's that's that's definitely true. So for when i was in university i i went to university of amsterdam thinking that was going to be really studying economics and then i got more interested in philosophy literature and just started reading a lot and i was writing fiction short stories and i. I really thought. I want you know was going to become a writer a novelist and wrote a manuscript. Send out too much publisher Publishers stay did not agree with that vision So when it was time to actually get a job. I got interested in copywriting. So it's like what's something related writing. What does that mean so ended up as a copywriter at a startup. incubator through. Ace venture ops part of mit stanford v latte so. So i was helping out these different startups helping them with the proposition and writing copy for them but allow me to then learn about technologies. Well so got more interested in in the tech space Join a little startup. There was doing some video streaming completely failed so when that story ended it was time to get different. Jobs ended up in customer service really as a quick job doing social media for kayla dutch airliner. So fire go into airline and customer service. Exactly so that's it doesn't get better than that and the company though is involved there with see x. company which was a chat bot company Acquired by siham a couple of months ago so i joined. cx company and Day were doing still virtual assistants whereas like you and a so. You'd ask a question they probably would not answer The old school things on a website and all of a sudden like everybody wanna chat bots and got interested in that and became more conversational. Cx company at the time didn't really know what that meant for the content. Their clients had no idea what that meant. And for me is like i always wanted to write dialogues and know from fiction writing understood. The technology understood the service space for me. It became very logical to actually focus on that problem. So i started doing this freelance at a bunch of clients and then i met my co founder and they had a an agency and behavior design so they were a psychologist thinking really about how people interact with products designed design for certain behavior and made a ton of sense. Because they were already doing stuff with conversational interfaces as well and we really. We realized that if you have a conversation between an artificial brain on a human brain you know you should make psychology and technology equally important in all right and so we. We started playing around with that and we had an agency was called robo copy at the time so so we just got a bunch of clients got more experience about designing conversations Started a little academy which is really focused on chat bots and Got in touch with google. Wally brill that that reached out to us and he really took us under his wings. And explain there's a lot of the fundamentals of voice design and connected with other designers So that got us more experienced gutters to work with you know the best designers in the world and and learn from there and as we went on that journey we really saw that the education was a big part of it So we created the academy and now mission or honest. Really that you see that enterprises are looking for conversation. Designers does lots of people that are actually designing conversations. But there is no alignment job title skill sets. It's very fragmented service. Enterprises can't find designers designers can't promote themselves very well tech companies on the other hand. Don't really know who's going to be using the products and how to design freedom universities at university at the same time note that i have to train people for jobs in the future Don't really know what jobs are so. We really tried to seek alignment now in an industry of conversation design. Therefore for conversation design institute was a name more suitable for that as well. So that's really how. I went from failed novelist conversation driver

"What's wally. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good today. we have. I believe our guests and all four guests have been very different but all help pilots who spend time behind the prop. Today we have ray the elbow with us. He owns any aviation and has done ninety nine percent of the maintenance work from my flight school and many of the people on the airport. Welcome to the show. Ray thank you. Thank you for having me. We get asked a lot of systems questions while the and i do and there's obviously a lot of maintenance that goes on and i spend a lot of time on the phone. I wish i actually talked to you. A little less ray but We spend a lot of time on the phone with each other and we wanted to have. Ray come talk to all the listeners. A little bit about what goes on in the world of maintenance maybe share some tips and tricks and some things that maybe people should be doing that. They're not doing on a regular basis So ready to get started. Tell us a little bit about you. Your background kind. Of all of your acronyms that are at the end of your name. So we understand what you're able to craft and stuff like that Well my my most of my experience comes from general aviation got about one year airline experience but mainly generally it's about twenty two years now I i have an mp in and i Which pretty much mainly mainly means. I could sign off. Annuals and three seven's does the i. I think it comes up a lot where somebody said. Hey you have to have an eye for that. And i don't think i think people just know of an acronym but what does that really mean it stands for inspection authorization okay and it's it's really not a certificate or license is just an authorization to sign off annuals and three three sevens which are major repairs and alterations Other than that you're. Emp's what you really use. Why does so. Maybe i'm wrong. But i have this perception that very few. Amp's haven't a or not what was a very few have an. I is that true and is it hard to get her. it's it's it can be a little difficult to get For starters you gotta have Three years in the field And you got. It's only a written test but the test is very difficult for me. It is right. I'm not a good test taker but it's difficult only because they just made it that way And unless you're out there doing annuals and actually doing three three seven's you really don't need it. Uranium p mostly everything. You can do If you're working out in the industry and the airline you'll never use the i In general aviation. Use it every day if you're doing annuals and major alterations and repairs Which is why a lotta. Ap's don't get it. I got it. I have to have it because we run a shop. So we gotta sign off annuals and we do. Stc's all the time required three three seven. So that's why i have it And then again you know you got to report to the fa When you have sure how more than you would with ampy sure we. We also share a lot of friends in common pilots both on the field and around the city You have a huge. I would say fan. Following lots of people speak very highly of your work and unease work. Tell people that might not be right here around us. What kind of work. You do how you help. Pilots get their planes back in the air just a little bit in case somebody wants to fly down and have you do their annual forms. Well mainly You know we stay busy with strictly. Piston aircraft We we do so many of them you know we could turn them pretty quick We know all their quirks We know pretty much where to get the parts In a timely manner right and that's that will help keep the airplane flying which is what most owners want In pretty much we have the crew at the shop to do it We have a person that does strictly she metalwork. We have one guy that does you know. It's real good at electrical so he keeps up with the electrical portions and all that combine helps. You know the shot move move a lot quicker And makes everything go a lot smoother in the long run. Saving time downtime and money for custom

It's easy to connect the wrong dots associated one thing with another when maybe they shouldn't be together at all for wally. This included mistake in christianity. For christ is demanding earthly father for the heavenly father. Once he got that figured out he started making the links that really mattered. He found freedom. He can't keep to himself. He found a loving god who was his friend his counselor and his buddy and a profound and meaningful way. My hope for you today is that you can apply this to your own life. Are you missing key links connecting one thing to another. That doesn't need to be is a possible. The guide you dismissed wasn't the god of the bible at all but a perception. You got from a bad preacher. A painful experience you had with a misguided teacher the judgment you found from self spiritual leaders a church. that was more of a country club hole. Basis for church hurts and is rooted in what we've talked about today. It's easy for us to connect the church with hurt bad experiences and memories. We'd rather forget that.

In contrast to the charlatans who seemed to get the news headlines that i never coveted. Sometimes i would get the recordings of my sermons and listen to them. It was a horrifying experience. I was never able to say what i wanted to say. As clearly precisely in. Compelling as i wanted to in contrast listen to gray contemporary preachers who are communicating. The very things. I wanted to communicate. Why did they seem to be able to preach so much better than may was mistaken. In my sense of call to the ministry all my churches tended to grow in numbers and spirit and vitality. Shouldn't they be growing faster. Perhaps if i was more gifted more holy harder working in weiser strategically i would see more fruit from my labor. You know exactly what i'm talking about. Maybe he warned a preacher or a public figures submitting to the never ending commentary of critics around you. But you had the voices in your head telling you you aren't good enough smart enough talented enough or charming enough to make the grade. The let it beat you down.

Check Ride Turbulence - Preparing for the Check Ride

"Up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good. This is a show that i think might blow off our top ten charts. Hopefully this is gonna be a new series that we're going to start doing every month called. Check ride turbulence. And that's a little bit of play on the words. Check ride and turbulence but these are going to be stories from flight school owner and a dp to make the check. Ride a little less bumpier to. We're gonna help people smooth those flights out and those check rides out And this week we're going to start with preparing for the check ride. And if you have check ride stories and that is you want us to do as part of this. Check rat turbulence every month show. Let us know this month is all about preparation for the check wally. I'm sure you've seen just about everything in your first four hundred and fifty check rides but on a scale of one to ten ten being the most prepared student that you've ever had that would have been me probably on the instruments. What would you say. The average level of preparation is for a check ride. I would say Somewhere around a seven so not bad right. Just a seventy percent is normally a failing grade right ryan so seven still not really really good right or professional pilots or people who wanna do something partake in something that could be dangerous. We want to shoot for better than seven. Yeah yeah good. I you know it's it it all goes to Preparation and at least with me I have an online scheduling system. If you if you book a check ride with me you're going to get a an email confirmation along with that email. Confirmation is going to be a letter It's the letter is is just over a page long and there's a lot of information on the ladder and if you use that letter. Basically as a checklist. You're gonna be in pretty good shape. I know several of the Other examiners here in houston use the same type of system. Where you you book it online and you'll get a confirmation What what i see is is the the m- farther out in advance that we can schedule a check ride and far farther out Before the check ride the student or the applicant is actually signed off in niagara. The better i would guess that. Probably fifty percent of applicants Before we even meet. I find some sort of missing something or other on the application the iraq application itself and it usually has to do with the flight times There's a little column off her class. Totals and it's Class totals and A lot of people miss that so Maybe it's a private pilot candidate. And they've got seven point nine hours of solo time and Or actually that'd be cross country. Let's say they got twelve hours of solo time. They should have in that class. Totals they should up twelve hours of of of single engine land. Pic time and a lot of times. They they missed. That and those are really easy things to fix. Because as i'm i'm sitting at home relaxing in the evening. I'm i'm looking a week ahead of time and i'm pulling up applications. I'm taking a look at things. And i'm i'm looking at the numbers on these applications and i see that it's real simple for me to go into my scheduling system and send you a text. Say i was looking at your application. I noticed she left out a column. I'm going to send it back to you right now and It's no big deal. It's no big deal. You know. I deal with akra daily I've i've dealt with it on on hundreds of applications and As a student pilot this may be your your second time to really deal with the i. Accra the first time being when you got your student pilot certificate. Now you're working towards your private and even the cfo is Extremely familiar with i acura. So i kind of know what things to look for. I'm looking for to meet the minimum requirements. Making sure there's three hours of inch talking about private. We're talking about parts sixty one Making sure there's three hours of instrument three hours a night time You know a lot of times you will see Then putting in the application that they have pic night landings which most of the time at this point The student pilot would not have that and Unless we're talking about Simulator time solo time plus dual time should equal total time so A lot of times. I'll see You know Tenth errors You know Twelve hours a solo time Fifty hours a dual time and total time of seventy two hours. Where would be sixty two hours so you know kind of make a A mental audit or a quick audit of the times to make sure they make sense. And again i would say probably forty five percent of the applications i yet before i ever even meet the applicant. i find some errors and we're able to fix that so that's probably the first thing and you know obviously if the application is done the day before sometimes it's not as easy to see those errors and then the morning of the check ride or the afternoon of the check. We're trying to fix these things. And i see the anxiety level on the applicant raising as they're dealing with this. They're they're thinking. Oh my gosh. I've made the examiner mad. Which isn't the case at all. I mean i just wanna get it right.

New GPT-3 Models Can Generate Images From Text

"Open a has introduced two new. gpt three models. The first is called clip. Which can classify images and categories from arbitrary text. The second is more interesting. It's doll e which can generate images entirely from snippets of text coding. The it technology review for all gpt threes flair. Its output can feel untethered from reality as if it doesn't know what it's talking about that's because it doesn't by grounding text and images researchers at open a and elsewhere are trying to give language models a better grasp of the everyday concepts that humans used to make sense of things dolly and clip. Come at this problem from different directions. At first glance clip contrasted language image. Pre-training is yet another image recognition system. Except that it has learned to recognize images not from labeled examples in curated data sets most existing models do but from images and their captions from the internet. It learns what's in an image from a description rather than a one word labels such as cat or banana clip is trained by getting it to predict which caption from a random selection of thirty. Two thousand captions is the correct one for a given image to work this out. Clip learns to link a wide variety of objects with their names and the words that describe them this then let's it identify objects in images outside. It's training set. Most image recognition systems are trained to identify certain types of objects such as faces in surveillance videos or buildings in satellite images. Like gpt three clip can generalize across tasks without additional training. It is also less likely than other state of the art image recognition models to be led astray by adversarial examples which have been subtly altered in ways that typically confused algorithms even though humans might not notice a difference instead of recognizing images dolly which i'm guessing is a wally slash dolly pun draws them. This model is a smaller version of. Gpt three that has also been trained on text image pairs taken from the internet. Given a short natural language captions such as a painting of a capybaras sitting in a field at sunrise or a cross section view of a walnut dali generates lots of images that match it dozens of capybaras of all shapes and sizes in front of orange and yellow backgrounds. Row after row of walnuts though. Not all of them in cross section and quote. The results are apparently striking. Maybe not as striking as when gt. Three i got everyone's attention a few months ago in the show notes. There's a link to the open. Ai blog where they show you examples of what this ai can achieve. You can also use the tool. Apparently to generate your own images. Sam altman had it draw an illustration of baby shark in a wizard hat wielding a blue light. Saber and it did it though. Apparently the tool was neutered. Just a bit. So people couldn't produce porn with it still as daniel rack tweeted quote. People think is coming for truck drivers first boy. Do i have news for you and quote and as a laser. You'd hausky tweeted quote. Consider this your notice. If you're a manga artist you have and years left before you're out of a job. I wish that i had any grasp whatsoever of how to relate to announcements like these my initial sense is an equals to wisely adjusted upwards to actually after the end of the world and quote

"You know before Tony it was kind of a I remember. An eighty one heck was as funny year. 'cause it was strike shortened. What we made the playoffs and my dad didn't even go to Kansas City for the first round thinking. Well we're going to be in the play-offs every year well. He learned the hard way. That isn't that easy And so there was this sort of period of of fallow period after that. Where are parm system had not gotten very good yet and we weren't that good and we sort of came back down to probably not playing over our heads and so bright before. Tony we were. We weren't very good at all and so one of the your point. One of the key factors was Tony. Saying yes. One of the key factors with Jerry. Reinsdorf what he said was the worst baseball decision he ever made which was firing tawny and right and I think one of the reasons Tony did come was the fact that he knew that our farm system was about to become one of the best. And start churning out rookies of the year and I remember that winter meeting before I WANNA say. It was. Eighty seven eighty six. Where just a bunch of things worked and you know from signing a Dave Henderson and Dave. That didn't create a lot of bells and whistles but as he turned out to be one of our very you know and just everything we did from that to the we ended up. This is baseball ball carte stuff but trading for Bobby Welch Radio Griffin and a three team trade which was kind of a new thing at the time and just everything fell in place and from there it just built to then to nineteen eighty eight and we were. We were really pretty good. You might say pretty good pretty good at this. Those were such fun. Teams really must have been a to be part of them do what? What are your favorite memories are or moments from from some of those years? Well Gosh I there too many frankly but well again and speaking of things falling in place how? `Bout you know this guy who was Kinda released day Stewart coming from the scrap heap and we weren't very good and he coming to us. And then Tony. You know pitches him. In his first verse. Game as a manager at Fenway Park against Roger Clemens. He wins that and he never loses a game against Roger. Clements is in Oakland. I think and he went. I think nine and one or eight and one lifetime against clements and the only loss was I think when he was with Texas before that? So that's a memory. I'll never forget. Was that opening game at Tony. Larussa zero with Dave Stewart and And on and on and Bobby Welsh's twenty something game wins in nineteen that ninety? I think it was where and and I remember a game that day Stewart. I mean I remember some of the ones that aren't as obvious. Frankly Susan but there was a game against the red sox a home game that Dave Stewart pitched and he prided himself in. You know pitching complete games and I think that game. It was one nothing game. Somebody like Glenn Hubbard. It hit home. Run or something. And and he. He struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Boston. Red Sox I think one of the strike us with somebody like Jim Rice and I think he threw ten pitches and that and it was electric so those are kind of obscure memories but Or how Dennis Eckersley help us not get too old too fast because whatever the outcome was which was almost always something positive. It happened really fast. Strike one strike. Two one outs two outs So there's just so many it was it was. They were special teams with a really special group of guys. I mean they're you know. I know that Joan Ryan has a new book coming out about team chemistry which I can't wait to read But and they some people will say well if you win. That's you're GonNa have good team chemistry but there's more I believe there's more to that. And they were a bunch of really good guys and think Bob Melvin would tell you right now. He's got to going to. These are really bunch of good guys. Yeah big personalities on on those eighty obviously go there were. Saco and Ricky and they were you know. Here's an interesting facts. We broke the all time. Wrote Attendance Record Record in the American League during that era and eclipsing a New York Yankee team. I don't remember what year that they had the the road attendance record in the American league but we broke it. So as we ended up those guys had swagger they were Kinda rockstars if you will and In some of those games I think they're just when they they. They went on the field. They they had a better chance of winning because the other team felt like they. Didn't you know we've heard the phrase a lot where pitchers when I know this guy's pitching we we? We think we have a good chance to win. It felt that way a lot for many of those games and we have you know. We broke the bay area. I think attendance record at the time before the giants built our beautiful new stadium. Two point nine million. But that's not terrible in the old Oakland Coliseum right and it was because a credit that these these guys were you know people wanted.

Did you were you a paratrooper in the military or no? I I was all my all my career in the navy. I was in communication vigil communications. You see when the war started? We could not go to radio. And so by breaking the code. We knew where the Japanese were. And we could say a wave. I. I also read that that you were not only Pearl Harbor, but you spent the rest of the war at just about every major battle in the Pacific, right? That is correct. Well, my my discharge says, I was in six campaign Bogo within those six campaigns. There's also other landing so I actually made nine landings and the Pacific. I didn't make them the ship made him and put troops ashore. Lila, my last one was Jim. Jameh? I brought I brought. Back be you know, who. No. Dr germ Vassallo was your first medal of honor winner from Guadalcanal. He was a marine and they took him from there, and he took into the states, and he sold more bonds than any other man alive.
