Stephen .M. Smith and the Iron Bowl

"Stephen smith welcome back from touchdown. Alabama stephen amit always good to see you and great to have you on the program. So it's the week of the iron bowl you've been high on the tide. Since the first time we talked during the summer. let's start with mag jones because you told us. He was different than that was before the public. In the heisman voters fell in love with him. Absolutely i mean. The young man has been battle tested poise and career. I remember him in the us. Freshmen in two thousand seventeen with the scout team out there throwing bombs and of course coach saban told him stop throwing the ball deep all the time. King looks at cope sabres coach. Tell your defense a check me there so you got a guy with that type about and that type of confidence even check his own coach. Nick sabin that you got yourself a quarterback that can really do some special things. So i knew from mack. Jones the freshman that he was poised to this moment but also seeing the growth that he's made targeted stephen m. smith who stephen m. seems like every every aspect of alabama has gotten better the one that has surprised when people is the is the defense. Because after the ole miss game i i wasn't sure that p golden should be buying green bananas. But what's happened on that side of the ball. The main thing is coke. Sabin and pete goading have done a great job. Simplifying things on times player stink too much. You think about my job and is my teammate. Doing his job. It's the guy in front of me. The guy behind me the guy next to me doing their job. And when you're thinking about so many things of your job is and training your is to be district where confusion comes in so nick. Saban has always been one to say. Do your job and the rest will take care of itself. So she and goading been a great june above of simplifying. The game plan players have done their job. You're seeing more pressure on defense guys stopping the run better. More turnovers created a the big thing here. Paul is essentially omits game. You've looked eleven. Shutout quarters football alabama including a complete game shutout of mississippi state and the team is getting off the theater on third down so a better job of simplifying the game plan and players. You know being concerned about doing their job correctly. It's interesting. we haven't really heard much in the aftermath of jason water when he went down some of the pundits. I remember somebody. Espn said alabama was done. They had no chance of winning the national championship. How has that been dealt with on the team. Because it doesn't seem like and i realized alabama has played a top five team Yet they will seem like they've done quite well without him. I remember a conversation. I had with john. Michie paul about you know. How do you feel. Avoid behind by waddell. He's a one type player. Barry explosive guy would. He got hurt against the volunteers. You heard coach. Sabe say you know. I hurt for college football. Not the fact that saving hearts for alabama. I'm sure he pretty much does but he hurts for college. Football due to people enjoy seeing james waddell on the field. He's fast he's a bottle he's gone. He's energetic he's explosive. He's highly entertaining. Obama has found ways to work. Around this. you've seen slade. Boden return be on kickoffs. Of course he got a twisted ankle against kentucky alabama monitoring jam all week and practice. He should be able to go this week. But we'll see what happens We have seen devante. Smith retiring ponts against kentucky patrick satanic. A second has also field in that role a little bit so save has put he and different guys and that special teams role to try to you know. Fill that void but it's worked out for the most part. It is difficult trying to find that guy that can do know what j. waddell does

At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses

"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.

"wanna waddell" Discussed on The Wellness Business Podcast

"And then number five, which I really love the workshop course I paid Webinar, and that's another great way to test your course idea. Yes for sure and don't get so hung up on. Well, am I, created a starter course or spotlight. Does it matter but it just for a course creator, it's a good place to start but let me give you an idea of what may be a spotlight course would look like. So one of my students her name is Maria and she actually had a brick and mortar workout studio. So she had this workout studio and she was very specific about who she served and I think this is something else we should talk in terms of. Getting, clear on who you want to serve, she wanted to help moms to be so pregnant women and postpartum women about a year. After they've given birth, she wanted to help women that were in that period of their life work out in Phil healthy and move their body, and so she had this brick and mortar people would come into our studio and actually even before. Cova. Did she realized a lot of pregnant women want to work. Out at home, they don't WanNa Waddell into the studio and kind of get all especially if they have kids at home, that's an added stress. So she served the MOMS and she realized this this is what they want. So she actually took her business online she started creating fitness programs for again, MOMS to be postpartum women and she said, you know, amy, this is a very unique group I needed to understand them and I being A. Mom of three could understand what they're going through. I knew their challenges I've gotten results for myself. 'cause there were certain areas that they were maybe struggling with or concerned about and she had lived it. She had gotten results in her own life. So she started to teach this online and she did multiple launches the first time she launched it thirteen thousand dollars and she's like I think I can do better. So she launched the same. Program again, fifty six, thousand dollars should not no I can do better than that and now I'm getting better at what they want in terms of the Webinar in the marketing in how to talk to them third time she launched it three, hundred, thirty, two, thousand dollars. Wow. This is a fitness program for pregnant women. Now I tell you this story because one you can always take a concept to understand your audience and turn it if it is something physical. Turn it into an online experience, but more importantly I stand by the fact that you only need one digital course to be profitable. We talk about all these different types of courses like Maria with their spotlight course it's spotlight course because it certain exercises just for pregnant women she's going deep in that one area, but she launched it over and over again, I'm a huge fan of encouraging students to take a course when you've got a little little success that. She had thirteen thousand dollars, which is great for a first time, a course creator, and then she thought, okay, I'm not going to chase the next shiny thing. I'm not going to change direction. I'm going to stay in his lane and do it over and over again that is literally how I have seen my success and how she did to one more thing John Wayne launch, of course over and over again if you use webinars to launch your course you. Will See your email list skyrocket because every time you do webinars people opt in for your webinar whether they buy or not on that. Webinar. If they're still on your list are more likely to buy the next time you launch. So I have such a engaged big email list because I launch over and over again the same thing and I attract people into my world with each of my launches. So it's a list builder as well as a money maker. Yeah, just exactly what you described as another example of how to simplify things not just simplifying your course but how much more does that simplify your entire business and we hear coaches say this all the time well. GOSH PEOPLE GONNA. Get tired of me running the same program over and over again well, no because not everybody is ready right now actually you yeah, going to continue to build your analysis and bring New People in. But when you have one program that works really really well and you rinse and repeat, it's like Hallelujah. Yes it's so true and it makes like you said it makes everything so much simpler. Oh Gosh don't we all need that? Hey Man. I know you designed a two minute quiz that based on our listeners level of expertise in all goals tell them the exact type. Of course they should create an it's called. Your personal path to creating a profitable digital course. Can you tell us a little bit about the quiz and how it helps coaches overcome that feeling of a digital course just feeling so heavy and overwhelming? Yes. Okay. So if you are a coach a consultant of any kind and you're thinking about creating digital course, this two minute quiz is g is going. To genuinely give you a personal assessment of how to get started with the digital course. Now, let me just warn you not everybody is perfect for a digital course, and if you're not quiz, we'll tell you so so just know they're you're GonNa get an honest assessment of where you're at in terms of your journey, your audience and your business and from.

Why Do People Have Dreams and Nightmares?

"When you're asleep. Sometimes strange things happen. You fly through the air like a bird but you don't have wings but then all of a sudden you do have wings and you go all the way to Antarctica and float over the ice watching Penguins Waddell over the edge into the water and seals swim up just below. Sometimes after you've gone to sleep you travel to a magical place. Sometimes scary things happen. After I stay down the hill I went into a cave near the bottom of the hill and I was super scared Saw The bay on his hind. Why and then after that. I put up my covers over my head and that helped me stop making that. Lean Jameson from Walpole Massachusetts. Sent us that dream that scared him but as he points out. Then you wake up and you're actually still in your bed. Everyone Dreams and dreams play an important role in the way our brains function. But we don't always remember our dreams today on but why we're GONNA listen back to an episode. We made about dreams. Here are some of the questions you have sent us recently about. How AND WHY WE DREAM? Hi My name is Nikki. And I'm six years old. I live with faceted California and my question is how do we get dreams? And why Hello? My name is seven years old. I'm from Turkey stumble. My question is why do we dream an have two mayors my name is listed and I will live and hair. Some Burke Virginia and I'm seven years old. Why DO WE DREAM? And can you control your dreams? My name is Anne. I'm from California and I'm seven years old. My question is why do you? Sometimes I feared trips mining this connor. I am in nine years old and I'm from Menlo Park California. My question is why. Did you sometimes have dreams? That have nothing to do with your day. My name is penny. Sure I'm ten years old. Eleven thinks burden Maryland. And my question is why when you watch things or scary things get bad. Dreams about. Halloween was real anna from Passer California and three years old and my question is at what age do keister having dreams harmonies my name is Liam. I'm eight years old. I live in New Jersey and my question is how do we wake up this? We have a nightmare today. We're going to get answers from Dr David Kahn. I'm on the Faculty of the Harvard Medical School in the Department of Psychiatry. A psychiatrist is a doctor who studies the way our brains make us feel and think and behave and a psychiatrist helps make sure your brain is keeping your mood stable and your emotions healthy. That's often called mental health. Dr Kahn got interested in medicine. Partly because like so many of you. He was really interested in dreams. I dream and I said Oh my God I dream a lot. And what is that all about? Why am I dream so different than when I think during the day? Let's see if I can learn something about it. I'm a physicist by training and so I decided that's a really good new area to investigate. And it's very personal. Sometimes physics can be impersonal. Dreaming is very personal so I decided to learn more about it. Here are a few more of your questions for Dr Com. Hi My name is Colin. I'm seven years old. I live in Phoenix Arizona. And my question is why do people have dreams and nightmares? Any is luke got MS seven year. Old Girl. And I live in New York City. My question is why do you have daas nightmares? And why do you have good thoughts? Good Dreams dreaming is thinking when we're asleep when we're awake up. Rain is actively able to think but when we go to sleep. The brain doesn't stop being active. It's just as active in sometimes more active than when we are awake. So dreaming is the way the brain thinks so if dreaming is the way the brain thinks when we're asleep why does it seem so different from the way we think when we're awake? I mean I don't know about you but even when I play pretend it's not quite the same as the magical worlds. I live in when I'm dreaming. James can be very strange because parts of the brain change compared to the way the brain is when we are thinking and awake what happens. The emotional parts of the brain are very active when we are asleep and dreaming often our dreams therefore who be scary or joyful or affectionate or even nightmarish because the emotional areas of the brain become highly active when we go to sleep and start to dream however. Why don't we say okay? This is a nightmare. I don't want to happen nightmare. I'm going to stop it. We can't because another part of the brain when we go to sleep and trim the logical part stops working. It's off line so in other words. I can't tell my brain to stop having dream whether it's bad or good because that part of my brain is shut down while I'm sleeping the part of the brain. That's logical and rational and tells you you should do this. I should do that checks out when you go to sleep. And you're dreaming so right now you're listening and you can decide. I'M GONNA listen or I'm not gonNA listen to Dr Kahn or I'm going to go and get an apple from the refrigerator or a cookie. You decide but when you go to sleep and you dream you don't decide vitrine just goes on as if you weren't there of course you are there but the part of the brain that lets you decide to do this or not to do. This is offline checks out is not working. That might sound a little frightening. A part of your brain isn't working but think back to our last episode. All about sleep sleep is an important time for your brain and body to recover from all the hard work you do. All Day while you're awake and it's also a time for your brain to reorganize itself so some parts of your brain need a little time to go offline as Dr Khan calls it to get a chance to recover and clean up but those other parts of your brain. The emotional parts are still very active. And so your dream continues and Dr Khan points out. That's actually pretty cool. Anything could happen. Which is not bad because you get experiences that you wouldn't have if you're a weight because your logical mind would say or this can't be. I can't fly sometimes. People fly in their dream costs. They don't know they can't fly when you're awake. No you can't fly so essentially when I'm dreaming if I'm flying in my dream or if I am a lion in my dream my brain actually thinks that I am that thing or can do that thing. Because there's no part of my brain that's telling me it's wrong when you're dreaming the part of the brain that knows you're not a lion or you're not a tiger or you can't fly fat part of the brain coast to sleep so to speak meaning. It's not working the way it works when you're awake when you're awake if you imagine you're a lion you can imagine that but you know that you're not a lion you can imagine you're flying like Superman but you know that you're not when you go to sleep and dreaming that part of the brain isn't working the same way and so you believe you're flying you you're superman or tiger. It's great to have all these interesting experiences when your dreams are good but if you've ever had a bad dream you know that they're not always fun. Hi Lendings Friday. I'm five years of Dover Massachusetts it island. Now why are they have scary deums? I'm Mac I four years old. I live in Michigan. I question why people have bad dreams. Wait was waiting for us. Owed I was an pence. Oh Bay Neha and I'm Wendy. While he getting night why do we have bad dreams that make us feel terrible and sometimes wake us up scared or crying? Dr Com when we were asleep and dreaming the emotional areas areas of the brain. That make us feel feel good feel bad. They're highly active. And since we can't control what the dream is going to be like. Sometimes it's very joyful and we're very happy. Sometimes it's scary. Sometimes a monster might be there or a bad person is chasing us. But we don't have the brain that tells us no. There is no bad person like we do. When we're

How Amazon's Counterfeit Products Threaten Safety

"After I started digging into this whole counterfeit issue on Amazon together with some of my colleagues leagues. We wanted to see firsthand. What was going on so Cardiff? We decided to order a car seat from Amazon. This carseat looks like a copy of the Dune. A brand the Dune Lebron's Iran. It's just kind of fancy brand kind of combination carseat and stroller and it retails for about five hundred dollars a lot of celebrities own them and it's an attractive you've target for counterfeiters. The listing on Amazon. It didn't use the brand name Duna but it showed photos of real donors including one of vodka trump with hers when the product arrived. It also looked a lot like do not including copying elements of the design. The company says it has patented. We showed the seat to this woman at least bear. She's better are known as the car seat lady. She's a car she lady. Yep She's got quite a following. She's a pediatrician. And car. Seat safety advocate all the interviews. You'll hear in this podcast caster from my piece for CNN. If you look here it says `I ways not always use seatbelt if you noticed spelling errors in the labeling of the a car seat that should be a red flag manufacturers are very diligent about the grammar and the spell checking of their labeling and instructions. She also noticed some other things that she thought were red flags like labeling in the wrong language stitching that went through the webbing of the safety harness thing. She said you wouldn't normally see in a car seat and and of course you might think that there's no way to actually tell if a car seat is safer not unless you like crash it really quickly into the wall with your kid in there and you're not GonNa do do that Pamela. Had to get around that so we crash tested it. Oh okay right not with a real kid of course with approved dumbing. I'll take your word for for it. We sent the car seat to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute they ran it through a basic thirty mile an hour crash test. This is something that all car seats that are sold in the. US are supposed to pass and it failed. They were bits of plastic flying off of it and the car seat with a toddler inside it actually slid forward and twisted a bit and Pamela. You said that bear and another pediatrician looked at this video and said that a child in this seat would have been at serious risk of head and neck injuries so really scary stuff. For comparison. We did run the same test on a real dune and it passed. The seat stayed in one piece and in place. I'm ED. Raviv Dune as commercial manager manager said that his company there flagging these fakes to Amazon regularly. We've taken down just this year more than forty pages which had infringing aging products are fake products just on the Amazon platform alone. And if you -SSUME that each one of these pages is up for you know three to seven days. Then you're talking about the good period of the year in which fake products dangerous products are being sold on Amazon. We sent the results of this crash test Amazon and after that they e mailed customers to urge them to stop abusing it immediately and they offer them a full refund all right so like service journalism. You get some results. We're happy to see that all done car seats are just one example of this problem though. We also bought a toy with magnets that didn't meet federal safety standards. I spoke to a company that made swallows for babies. They had a customer return one because his zipper pulled off a potential choking hazard and when they got this Waddell into their office they realized it was a counterfeit. Okay and Pamela. You actually did reach out to Amazon and were they. He said was. These are isolated incidents. That safety is a top priority for the company Amazon also made the point that sellers themselves are responsible for meeting Amazon's high bar for the quality of products for complying with laws and regulations. Now Amazon they are trying to tackle this counterfeit problem more than two hundred thousand brands issue. Something called the Amazon Brand Registry. This gives them tools to help them find and flag suspected counterfeits and Amazon also use automation to scan and proactively remove move suspicious listings. Yeah there's other Amazon program as well called transparency which lets companies tag each product with a unique code and that code can then be scanned to verify a five. The product is real. Although companies in that case need to buy the labels themselves in absorb the cost of adding these coach their products Amazon also starting to let some brands remove counterfeit listings on their own. The companies. I spoke to say Amazon's efforts. They have really helped especially in the last two years but they still oh complain. The responsibility and the cost of policing fakes feels like it. Falls on them. Rather than on Amazon they all describe it as an endless game of whack. A mole against counterfeits. Take one down another one pops up. Here's Ommiad Raviv again from tuna. It will be great if Amazon steps up and works with the brands and with the different advocates in the US in order to prevent these products from ever coming to the platform as opposed to removing them. Worse than what we there for. It's part Amazon on said that it invested four hundred million dollars in two thousand eighteen to build programs make sure the products that offers on its platform or safe and comply with regulations relations. So Cardiff something. I thought was really interesting. was that a couple of the people I spoke to. They mentioned they thought the current situation is only going to really change if Amazon and other ECOMMERCE platforms are held liable for safety defects trademark issues related to these goods sold by third parties. Yeah something interesting that you told me Pamela. was that right now. Courts don't see Amazon as the legal seller in these cases of third party sales so they treat Amazon kind of like a flea market. There's a problem. The liability is with the vendor. The stall at the flea market not Amazon which is like the landlord that oversees the space where the flea market stall is a lot of dates back to a ten year old case involving tiffany the jewelry brand and Ebay it set up this idea that the law treats ecommerce really differently differently from a physical store like a target or your corner grocery those physical stores. They may not make the products they sell. But they're still liable for problems with them But this could change recently. An appeals court rejected. This interpretation for the first time the judges in that case they were like look Amazon has so so much knowledge and control over it sales platform and it's so hard for the average person to try and track down and sue a third party seller. We should hold Amazon reliable. That court decision is going to be reviewed next month by the entire Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The legal community is watching really closely three different lawyers. I spoke with thought a change might be coming. It might be this case. It might be another one but they sense that something is starting to shift

This is something that all car seats that are sold in the. US are supposed to pass and it failed. They were bits of plastic flying off of it and the car seat with a toddler inside it actually slid forward and twisted a bit and Pamela. You said that bear and another pediatrician looked at this video and said that a child in this seat would have been at serious risk of head and neck injuries so really scary stuff. For comparison. We did run the same test on a real dune and it passed. The seat stayed in one piece and in place. I'm ED. Raviv Dune as commercial manager manager said that his company there flagging these fakes to Amazon regularly. We've taken down just this year more than forty pages which had infringing aging products are fake products just on the Amazon platform alone. And if you -SSUME that each one of these pages is up for you know three to seven days. Then you're talking about the good period of the year in which fake products dangerous products are being sold on Amazon. We sent the results of this crash test Amazon and after that they e mailed customers to urge them to stop abusing it immediately and they offer them a full refund all right so like service journalism. You get some results. We're happy to see that all done car seats are just one example of this problem though. We also bought a toy with magnets that didn't meet federal safety standards. I spoke to a company that made swallows for babies. They had a customer return one because his zipper pulled off a potential choking hazard and when they got this Waddell into their office they realized it was a counterfeit. Okay and Pamela. You actually did reach out to Amazon and were they. He said was. These are isolated incidents. That safety is a top priority for the company Amazon also made the point that sellers themselves are responsible for meeting Amazon's high bar for the quality of products for complying with laws and regulations. Now Amazon they are trying to tackle this counterfeit problem more than two hundred thousand brands issue. Something called the Amazon Brand Registry. This gives them tools to help them find and flag suspected counterfeits and Amazon also use automation to scan and proactively remove move suspicious listings. Yeah there's other Amazon program as well called transparency which lets companies tag each product with a unique code and that code can then be scanned to verify a five. The product is real. Although companies in that case need to buy the labels themselves in absorb the cost of adding these coach their products Amazon also starting to let some brands remove counterfeit listings on their own. The companies. I spoke to say Amazon's efforts. They have really helped especially in the last two years but they still oh complain. The responsibility and the cost of policing fakes feels like it. Falls on them. Rather than on Amazon they all describe it as an endless game of whack. A mole against counterfeits. Take one down another one pops up. Here's Ommiad Raviv again from tuna. It will be great if Amazon steps up and works with the brands and with the different advocates in the US in order to prevent these products from ever coming to the platform as opposed to removing them. Worse than what we there for. It's part Amazon on said that it invested four hundred million dollars in two thousand eighteen to build programs make sure the products that offers on its platform or safe and comply with regulations relations. So Cardiff something. I thought was really interesting. was that a couple of the people I spoke to. They mentioned they thought the current situation is only going to really change if Amazon and other ECOMMERCE platforms are held liable for safety defects trademark issues related to these goods sold by third parties. Yeah something interesting that you told me Pamela. was that right now. Courts don't see Amazon as the legal seller in these cases of third party sales so they treat Amazon kind of like a flea market. There's a problem. The liability is with the vendor. The stall at the flea market not Amazon which is like the landlord that oversees the space where the flea market stall is a lot of dates back to a ten year old case involving tiffany the jewelry brand and Ebay it set up this idea that the law treats ecommerce really differently differently from a physical store like a target or your corner grocery those physical stores. They may not make the products they sell. But they're still liable for problems with them But this could change recently. An appeals court rejected. This interpretation for the first time the judges in that case they were like look Amazon has so so much knowledge and control over it sales platform and it's so hard for the average person to try and track down and sue a third party seller. We should hold Amazon reliable. That court decision is going to be reviewed next month by the entire Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The legal community is watching really closely three different lawyers. I spoke with thought a change might be coming. It might be this case. It might be another one but they sense that something is starting to shift

"Call of duty. Modern warfares bow pass will be launching in December. Now for those of you wondering yes or the last week or two call of duty. Modern warfare has dropped. The game has done incredibly well actually Got To have a little bit of hands on with it it. It feels so good it feels like playing college duty for back in the day and it it feels like a AH fresher. B Fear Action packed feature-packed Game Not to mention a story actually watched a whole story from beginning to end. And so you can't you can't surprise me with any of the spoiler that happened with any of it.

Why Are Some Words Funny?

Why Are Some Words Funny?

"In the nineteen seventy-five movie, the sunshine boys, an aging vaudeville, comedian explains a classic truism of comedy to his nephew the case. Sound is always funny. The comedian played by Walter Matthau said fifty seven years in this business. You learn a few things, you know, what words are funny. And which words are not funny. Alka seltzer is funny. You say alka seltzer. You get a laugh, Casey Stengel. That's a funny name. Robert Taylor is not funny. Cupcake is funny tomato is not funny. Cleveland is funny. Maryland is not funny. Then there's chicken chicken is funny. Pickle is funny. And it's true. If you need a place name for a punchline, you're guaranteed to kill with Kalamazoo, connected key or Rancho Cucamonga, but why psychology professor Chris Westbury at the university of Berta has a fascinating theory. And it's based on perhaps the two unfunny est words in the English language statistical, probability Westbury. Published a paper in October of two thousand eighteen in the journal of experimental psychology with a first rate title, Wrigley, squeaky, Lennox and boobs. What makes some words funny in his research? He started with the list of the five thousand English words rated funniest by real humans and constructed a working with medical model for predicting the laugh factor of nearly every word in the dictionary. When Westbury applied his model to a data set of forty five thousand five hundred and sixteen English words, it decided that these ten words were the funniest of all up Chuck bubbly Baath wriggly. Yes, giggle. Kuch Cafa puffball and gigli runners-up included squeaky flappy and bucco and the perennial favorites of every eight year old on the planet poop, puke and boobs on the other end of the spectrum the word found to be the absolute least funny was harassment. In his paper Westbury explains that philosophers have been trying to unravel the mystery of humor for millennia Plato and Aristotle we're big fans of humor seeing it mostly as a way of denigrating and feeling superior to others Casero introduced incongruity theory, a writing that the most common kind of joke is when we expect one thing and another is said in which case our own disappointed. Expectation makes us laugh while the incongruity theory of comedy makes perfect sense of even rainy tins. Find switcheroo tricks high. Larry's Westbury says that it's not a true scientific theory in the clearly not every incongruence event is as funny as another a random coughing fit in a crowded movie theater isn't nearly as comical as a random farting fit. I mean, just try to say random farting fit without smiling. So the goal of Westbury's modeling experiments was to go beyond philosophical theorising and come up with a truly quantifiable scale of funny to do it. Westbury analyst words. In two different ways by their meaning and by their form for the first analysis. The researchers looked at semantic predictors. That group words with similar meanings. Using a free tool developed by Google that identifies words that are commonly used for one another aka co occurrence Westbury mapped out the semantic relationships between two hundred and thirty four of the human picked funniest words from this correlation plot, the researchers identified six different clusters or categories of funny words, insult sex party animal bodily function and expletive. Now. This is where things get dangerously mathematical since many of the words on the human rated funny list fell into more than one category. Other researchers needed a more precise measurement of how a words being translated into comedy using the Google tool. They came up with lists of words most closely related to each of the six categories, then they came up with the average values for each of those word categories. Using something called linear regression analysis. Those average values for each category. You know, insult expedited cetera became known as category defining vectors. When looking specifically at meaning it turns out that the funniest words don't necessarily fall cleanly into the most categories, but are the words whose mathematical values are the closest on average to those six category defining vectors. Here's how Westbury summed it up in a press. Brief the average similarity of a words meaning to these six categories is itself, the best measure, we found of a words funniness, especially at the word also has strongly positive emotional connotations. But meaning is only one type of measurement Westbury and his team looked at the form of funny words, a things like word length or the individual sounds or phonemes that make up each word in the second analysis the data fit nicely with the incongruity theory of humor. It turns out that the fewer times a word or its phonemes appear in the language. The funnier we think they are that helps explain why there are so many K and use ounds in funny word lists. There's typically improbable where it's ending in L E. Like Waddell in wriggle or another source of funds suggesting as the study, put it repetition usually with diminutive aspect. So why are we laughing? Now, this is where things get really weird the human brain seems as running all of these complex mathematical models all the time without any of us knowing it as we watch TV and read and talk to people our brains are constantly parsing language for subtle semantic, cross-connections and statistical probabilities and the result, at least on this basic one word level is what we call humor Westbury said if asked which letter is more common p or be I think the average person would have no clue consciously, but unconsciously they are sensitive to that. And we know that because they're funding this judgments are reflecting. Exactly that kind of fine tuned calculation. In other words, said Westbury people are using emotions to do math. Westbury argues that all of this makes perfect sense. Abolution airily our brains had been hardwired over millions of years to identify anything that's out of the ordinary as a potential threat and human emotions, including humor likely developed as ways of responding to improbable events and environments Westbury summed it up people laugh based on how improbable the world is. Of course, it's a long conceptual leap from predicting the funniness level of individual words to modeling the comedic mechanics of knock knock joker salty Limerick. But whispers, work points the way, maybe someday we'll finally understand why that chicken crossed the road. One thing's clear, though, a frog wouldn't have been half as
