David Toms Weighs Up LSU Football's Chances This Year
"LSU football and 12, no 11 days now, open Florida state. This is a tricky situation this year, I think, because we're used to having a clown as a head coach. We're used to having a guy that's always in front of the camera, doing all sorts of stuff. And it seems, for the first time since Nick Saban, that we actually have a football coach at the elm, and we're not seeing all of that extra hoopla media attention and all that. What do you think about Brian Kelly? What do you think about baby setting or align at 6 and a half games? Well, I mean, my first thought is, you know, woodwards of a friend of mine and he said to me, the biggest thing about Brian Kelly is now I do not have to babysit my football coach. And he goes, I needed a professional in there and run the program like we wanted all to be run as Tiger fans. And that's the bottom line is that, you know, the guys is a professional. You can tell by his media awareness and the way he runs the program, the way he's kind of cleaned up things. It's not like a good old boy network anymore and I look for him to do really well. I think as far as the odds go and what Vegas says, I think that they're a little bit out of touch with our improved roster.
Was Paul Newman Bi-Sexual?
"That led into my fascination with Paul Newman. I've always had a theory. The guy married Joanne Woodward who I think is plain Jane. This guy was the most beautiful man in Hollywood history, perhaps. He married plain Jane, and he was with us since they were studying acting in the city, like very young. Doesn't make any sense to me. And then the guy goes on to teach Tom Cruise how to drive race cars and I'm like, oh, this seems like a little bit of a may December romance to me. Then he makes salad dressing in popcorn. Come on. Macho men don't think of salad dressing recipes and the wrong with salad and popcorn. I just don't think most men think about their face on those products, but God bless you made millions and he gave it away. Good, good, good man. So I started looking into Paul Newman, and I always go to these gay sites because the gays know the gays know. And there's a bunch of stuff on this site. I gave to the patrons, and I'm going to talk about Paul Newman possibly being gay next week. I think it's a crazy story. I think people will be interested. But this is what I read on this gay site. During the making of cat on a hot tin roof, whole Newman, if you've seen the movie plays a repressed homosexual by the name of brick. James Dean was supposed to be lined up for that role, but he died in a car crash before production began, so it went to Newman. Now, in the film version, the direct homosexual references were taken out from the Tennessee Williams script in order to satisfy the current production codes, if you will. So the film script kind of dances around the reasons why brick and cat played by the gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor hadn't slept together in years. But the mention of the suicide of bricks close football chum skipper was kept in. Close football chump. That's the way things were mentioned back in the day if you want to talk about gay. He's my football chum. You know, oh, really? At one point, Paul Newman told Tennessee Williams. The role of brick is perfect for me. All my life I've been split into two different directions. One side of me wants to live life with my gay football buddy skipper. The other side is tempted to fuck the living shit at a Maggie the cat and be their heterosexual stud most of my fans want me to be. Um.

"They all learned how on YouTube. It is just me and ayesha today. So the origin of the last movie stars is that Paul Newman at some point commissioned a massive set of interviews with a ton of people. Everybody from Elia Kazan to Gore Vidal to his first wife from whom he'd had a painful divorce in preparation for a memoir he wanted to write. But at some point he burned the tapes, his children, however, discovered that while the tapes were gone, there were transcripts that survived and they reached out to Ethan Hawke about directing a documentary, building on them. In order to make them suitable for a film, the transcripts needed actual voices, so hawk brought in a lot of actors that he knows to essentially play the people in the interviews to read their words. So George Clooney and Laura Linney read the words of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Zoe Kazan is Newman's first wife, Jackie, and so forth. Mark Ruffalo is in it, Sam Rockwell, Karen Allen, Oscar Isaac, all kinds of people. And then he also just does a lot of zoom interviews with people like Sally Field and Martin Scorsese. And they also show a ton of clips from a ton of different movies. Sometimes just to illustrate a point that's being made about acting, sometimes to sort of align with something that's being said about their personal lives. The docu series is streaming now on HBO Max. Ayesha, you are a more adept Hollywood historian than I am. And I'm curious about how this particular Hollywood history struck you. Well, one of the things that I always hope for going into watching any documentary is regardless of how well I think I know this object or how well I do know the subject in reality, I want to come away from it feeling as though I've learned something new and boy did I learn a lot new here because I realized despite the fact that I loved Paul Newman when I was growing up and he was one of the first celebrities that I ever cried over when he died. I realized I didn't actually know that much about his personal life outside of the sort of glowing Hollywood Vanity Fair profile or whatever royalty, blah, blah. Yeah, yeah, and his storied famed relationship with Joanne Woodward, who I knew a little bit less about and I'm sure we'll get into that because that is a big, big part of their relationship and their dynamic is the fact that of the two of them, the one who is probably more well known today by younger generations is Paul Newman. I didn't realize that he was a quote unquote functioning alcoholic as some of his kids refer to him as and how that sort of played into his later career rules in movies like the verdict and the absence of malice. And I really thought that this was such an interesting way to do a documentary. And I always love a documentary that doesn't feel typical. It's not just Talking Heads.

Georgina skull is now the author of regrets of the dying, stories and wisdom that remind us of how to live, and Tania Chadwick is the author of the cure to sleep. For sleep I should say. Good morning to both of you. Welcome to the program. And Tanya I was actually going to start with you and say, what was the experience? I know we're not dwelling on this person, but of going that close to death and then how can you remember that in making a change in you? Hello, Emma. For me, because it happened so suddenly I wasn't ill, I suddenly started bleeding the very day the midwife had just signed me off. So I was in no pain and I was very aware I was dying. And it was such a shock. I experienced such pure regret at my cowardice in my first life. On paper, I looked successful. Working class Katie got university, first class degree, but I was hiding from everything. And so my real challenge was when I came back from induced coma and I'm a new mother as well. I was like, I've got to change my life. And that was a very strong feeling..

"Countries calling for humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and then last week, the decisive vote to suspend Russia from the Human Rights Council. So the whole membership now is speaking in a way that the Security Council can't because Russia holds a veto. How do you talk to your Russian counterpart? How difficult is that when you know that what they are saying doesn't tally with the reports on the ground? It's quite difficult to talk and it was quite striking the day they were suspended from the Human Rights Council. My Russian counterpart and his deputy were both absent from both the Security Council meeting and the General Assembly meeting. There is, of course, a certain level of professional conduct during our presidency month, of course, we have to carry on with other business, North Korea, Yemen, Ethiopia, Syria, and so on. So there's contact around those issues. But it is quite difficult at the moment for all of us, I think. Well, I mean, how would you do it? It must be pretty tough. When you hearing baseless and at times conspiracy theories, coming from Russia. Yes. I mean, the Russians told us right at the beginning that they weren't going to invade Ukraine. They then did. They told us that they weren't going to attack schools and hospitals. They then did that. So there's completely baseless lies and what we're trying to do is to use the Security Council and the UN more generally to expose the truth because the UN does have an unbiased and objective view of events. We're using the UN mechanisms to try and keep pressure on Russia. And I think most importantly, to proceed with accountability. So we've got the International Criminal Court now starting their investigations into what's going on in Ukraine. We suspended Russia from Human Rights Council. So we're using the levers we've got to keep the pressure on Russia to end the war. And meanwhile, you've got to be diplomatic in all of this and talk to people who are spouting, as you say, lies. Well, they're spouting lies, they're killing people in Ukraine. They are probably raping women in front of their own children. So it is very difficult. But the point of diplomacy is that you try to avoid war, and we have to keep some channels open for discussion. And on that, let's move, you've talked about the UK being the president of the Security Council this month. We, the UK, you are focusing on sexual violence in conflict. That's right. So when you're president of the Security Council for a month, you can pick a couple of themes outside the normal agenda to highlight and move work forward. So ten years on from our work on preventing sexual violence in conflict, we're going to launch tomorrow a new code of conduct to try and improve justice for survivors of conflict related sexual violence or basically sexual attack and rape in war. And we've developed that with the Nobel laureate Nadia murad, who herself as you'll know was kidnapped by ISIS in Iraq and suffered appalling gang rape beating cigarette burns when she was aged only 19 back in 2014. And she has remarkably not only survived that..

"Do and speaking, of course, as part in your position as a diplomat, but also with the United Nations. Because Russia has already been removed from the UN Human Rights Council. This was after president zelensky addressed the council about the atrocities in butcher, which again took things to another level. Have you got any? Are there any levers left to pull? There certainly are. And we were very pleased that we had president zelensky addressed the Security Council last week as part of our presidency at the Security Council and that led on to the suspension from the Human Rights Council. But the chemical weapons convention provides for sanctions and penalties. And we saw that exercise very clearly after the attack on Sergei and Yulia scruple. And we know the Russians have formed you look at what has happened in Syria. You look at what has happened to Navalny in Russia. So there are provisions under the chemical weapons convention for handling chemical weapons attacks. I suppose those provisions perhaps though haven't been enough to provide a deterrent. Well, they haven't provided a deterrent in the past for the instances that I've mentioned. But I think it is fair to say that we have largely managed to outlaw the use of chemical weapons of course until the tragic attack in 2014 in numa. Yes, and as you say, this is being investigated right now about what may or may not have gone on in Ukraine. I've supposed to be those who are far less familiar with the way the United Nations works the way diplomacy works than you, who will be thinking, why is Russia allowed to remain in the United Nations? That's a question that's being raised a great deal here and indeed president zelensky raised it last week when he addressed the Security Council. And I think the hard truth is there is no provision in the UN charter for suspending or removing a permanent member of the United Nations. So that would be one of the United States, the UK, France, Russia, or China, from the Security Council. The underlying premise, of course, in 1945, was that these were the victors of the Second World War, and they would not have any stake at all in continuing a war seeing World War three. That's by and large worked, but of course, until Russia invaded Ukraine on the 24th of February, that's now come under question. And that's quite serious question to be asked. I mean, how do you see that being resolved? Do you see that being resolved any time soon? I don't see that immediate question being resolved. But what we have seen is, I think, quite a deft interplay between the Security Council, which has got 15 United Nations members on it, and the General Assembly, which is the membership, the whole a 193 countries. And three times now in the General Assembly, where the Security Council has been unable to act. We've seen, first of all, a 141 countries condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine..
Ginni Thomas Texts Released While Husband Clarence in Hospital
"You're not going to convince probably 60% of Americans may be 70. That every vote was legitimately counted in November of 2020. So Ginny Thomas is not some lunatic fringe QAnon activist, but that's how they want to portray her because they did a big bombshell this week. A big, big reporting. Here's Bret baier over on Fox News with the reporting of The Washington Post story. That Bob Woodward of Watergate fame himself, Bob Woodward went to print yesterday and that's very important that you remember the timing of this leaked story. The text messages that Mark Meadows turned over to the January 6th witch hunt committee led by Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger on the Republican side. Here's Brett Baer's reporting on this yesterday. Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas, repeatedly pressed then White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to pursue efforts to overturn the 2020 election. That is according to text messages obtained by The Washington Post, came out tonight. The messages reveal a pipeline between Thomas and president Trump's top aide during a period when Trump the president at the time and his allies were vowing to go to the Supreme Court to negate the election results. The Washington Post is saying those text messages are among more than 2300 Meadows provided to the House select committee investigating the capitol riot on January 6th, justice Thomas, who is currently hospitalized, has not responded obviously to The Washington Post request for comment neither has his wife. Well, yeah, I'm sure he hasn't responded because he's in the hospital being treated for an undisclosed illness. He's been there nearly a week or more, sounds serious. Ginny Thomas is undoubtedly by her husband's side. Praying for his recovery. So she's a little busy, too.
Why Did Bob Woodward Pick THIS WEEK to Release Ginni Thomas' Texts?
"And when you wonder if you're on that right side of the ideological spectrum, let me share with you a couple prominent examples of something making news right now. Bob Woodward of The Washington Post decided this week, it was good timing to write a story about text messages that the wife of ailing Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas apparently wrote to Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows. Now, these text messages were turned over by Mark Meadows to the January 6th committee at the end of last year, but this was the week they decided to run with the bombshell, the Ginny Thomas was urging Mark Meadows to fight back against to urging Trump to fight back against the outcome of the election. The only thing about clarence Thomas this week, have you read about him? You know where he is? He's in the hospital, and as I understand it, it's going on a week. And anybody who knows anything about hospitals, if you're in the hospital a week, that ain't a hangnail. I don't know what's wrong with him, apparently he's got a type of infection of some kind. It's unspecified, but he sounds like he's pretty sick. Think his wife is concerned about his about her husband right now? Think her wife is frantic? I think his wife is worried, stressed, but now she's got this to deal with because that's the point. It's how cruel they are. That's how vicious and mean spirited and cruel the Adam kinzinger is in the Liz Cheney's and the bob woodwards of the world are.

"And david shoemaker. All the ringer here along with producer lonnie rinaldo. It's a big week in publishing david. Bob woodward is releasing a new cycle. I mean i'm sorry new book a new book. It's very easy to get confused when it comes to bob win. The new book written with his washington post teammate. Robert costa is peril peril No subtitle remember the press box rule of publishing the surest sign. You're a big deal in book world is if you're nonfiction books. Don't come with subtitles right. You don't have to explain just now knowing were that's it. That's enticements necessary. Now i mean there. There will be supplementary copy available online for anyone that needs it but as long as you got a couple you know. Presidents faces on their in bob. Woodward's name robert costa to boot. I think you kind of get the point across you. Get the point across now. I've been reading peril inbetween wedding speeches all weekend and on the plane. Back here to la. I got a couple notes for you about the book itself. But i i'd like to say a little bit about the woodward method of interviewing Please i was fortunate enough to speak with someone who participated in one of the interviews for apparel who had some notes about the whole experience first of all. The interview was at bob woodward's house in georgetown in washington. Dc where dinner was served on the one hand a far cry from cub reporter woodward knocking on people's doors and all the president's men. Yeah absolutely see the pull of that right for sure. Making powerful people feel ease is it a townhouse is that is that what we officially call the nice residences in dc townhouses. I believe that's correct because they're brown stones in new york but the but it's a different thing slightly different thing but down houses sort of also sure there's a bunch of high rises not high. I'm sure there's new builds in dc but it seems like once you get the townhouse you've kind of hit the aspirational peak in washington world right. You're not like sure it's not like new york. Words like there is a fifteen thousand foot pin house being constructed. At any given moment you might move into someday. It's the townhouses the goal. That's the gold standard and if you're somebody like woodward come over to my place no one's gonna over here is here was serve some wine you know. Everybody will be comfortable so as i said. Dinner was served in the participants that there was a lot of just casual shooting the shit over the salad course but then when a subject came up that woodward wanted to ask about bore the book itself woodward said something like You know that's something i wanted to ask you about. Would you mind if i take out recorder. None of this attribution. Of course it. Just i just been doing it this way for years now. I found that really funny because every journalist including me has a photo apologetic way of asking the subject if it's okay to turn on a recorder. i do that several times we. I'm sorry would you mind. If i record this for my notes are so i can transcribe it later. You just something you kinda reflectively. Say this is bob woodward bob woodward says yes. It's okay of.

"My triggers are already doing this. I can help them be more efficient. I can also gain control back into the business to understand what they should be doing versus what they're actually doing so we can hook into various. Gps telematic solutions as well as the gps telematics on the actual mobile device itself so we can give a really really nice plan on the web to say. Hey here's what the drivers should be doing. And here's what they're actually doing. So you can overlay the planned route with the actual route. That's been performed and instead of just making assumptions that everything's getting done correctly or when a customer calls up and you don't know what's happening in the field. You can actually make a decision very quickly by looking on the web in that screen just to say oh looks like they're running a little bit late and we've even built Some other things on top of that that kind of eliminate that problem so you probably get a lot of notifications if you get any kind deliveries or service done you know you always wanna know as a consumer as a customer. You know win. That's going to happen. You know if you order some new furniture you know you don't want to sit around for the four hour window that they give you so the companies that are adopting technologies. That are kind of making an uber like experience for customers to get text notification to be able to see the vehicle coming to them on the map. And that's kind of what we're doing. In order to enable you know small medium and large enterprise was to do that rapidly at scale. So it's a very exciting thing i think just for everyone involved in the whole cycle. It's something that makes their lives better cool. Yeah that makes sense. So what is the app. Experience like sosa. Someone says you. Here's my ten locations and route for me will find a route for them and then do you do then hand them off to like a their maps app of choice or do you also do all of the the navigation along the way so we want to present the user with the best experience in how they want to experience it because again they're all unique you know they're they're my snowflakes right every customer. I've worked with you know. Everything's a little bit different and you mentioned something. Okay we've got the data that's usually the first step and sometimes that's the hardest step is to make sure that we get the data in a usable format. Oftentimes you know. The first step is transitioning from cocktail napkins to using a something like a spreadsheet and getting them to a point where okay you know. Many companies are already there. Some are using different systems. The aarp's order management systems. And so. it's just a matter of getting data in the right format that's consumable in that can once we're there. It's really just a matter of upload that and get the settings that are needed for the actual route or routes and this allowing the user to make changes. That's really critically important because you know just because we say hey this is. What is the solution while you may have. That internal tribal knowledge. Says no i want to take these three stops and put them on this route so it drag and drop and from there. You can just very quickly approve. The routes and dispatch them to the mobile device so whether plan on the web gets dispatched right to the mobile device in the driver can follow it again. A very easy to use application. Go download it. Check it out. Let us now. And the drivers can perform a number of other actions from marking and addresses visited and departed to adding a note Signature capture images various other actions that they can involve and then there's feedback as well so we can automatically detect when a location is visited departed based on geo fence around a location so that we know that there on time ahead behind so it's giving that feedback to the rest of the people back at h. q. To understand hair we actually on time. Are we doing what we said we do. And so it's a very simple transition for the driver in we really focus a lot on the driver's that's that's really our main focus is if we can create a really great experience for the drivers. That's critically important because of course you know the web is very friendly but it's a very quick process of planning the routes. You know the driver's the one that's actually doing it all day so if they want to hook into so on the mobile app if there's ten stops for their route in here's the sequence of the stops. All they have to do is click on you know a little icon and they can save it as a default if they wanna use ways they can use ways. They wanna use our in-app navigation. They can use our inept vacation so we present them with choices. Because we think it's the right thing to do. Yeah totally makes sense. Only makes sense very cool. I'm and so what jumping a little bit to route for me as as a company. So you said that you've been Referees been serve remote. I almost since the beginning. And so what is that like. Do you have folks all over the world. You have like what java everytime time zone. Yes how do you navigate all of that. How do you deal with people who are on. You know you have a meeting with somebody in sweden someone in tokyo. It's kind of. How do you kinda get be productive in that kind of global environment. It's a well. I think there's flexibility and so there's a give and take to everything And there's also a i. I'd there's more silos you know in terms of within the company itself that you can't have just you know all of the product team you know necessarily on different time zones at the same time it's really you know again using other software solutions to actually product manage it so everyone can get assigned in that working get done and you know so. It's just a matter of making sure that that's being done. You know from a project management perspective. You know it's kind of interesting because you know the whole idea of time zones you know as long as the work's getting done that's really that's really what we care about our offer me like do do good work and do well and get the work done and you know just move a move on like there's no need to necessarily. Have you know a meeting about this. As long as we can clearly communicate. So i think that's probably the really big thing is communication and there are a lot of tools from slack. Slackness skype to you know hip. Jad there's i mean there's all kinds of tools for communication and to zoom as we've all found you know throughout this pandemic there's many ways to keep in touch and the time zones are one thing and we do have some folks who shifted their time zones and because they believe in what. We're doing the work that we're doing. You know it's great for them so they may be in the european time zone and working a little bit more in the eastern time zone. So it's just somehow it works people find a way i can. I can give you the exact recipe or formulas. i think it's unique to every every business and it's just what you find in. What is so amazing. About businesses and building products is that. They're all unique the way we do. It may not work.

"Yeah so i think yeah. And i mean what one thing that's always struck me is how expensive that space is right. I mean think about when. You're when you have google maps on your dashboard and you're driving someplace all those roads that you see on that map and they're all passing by you at fifty miles an hour. Maybe more than that. If you're on the highway you know in all of those. Are you know directions that you at least somewhat have to consider when you're figuring out this path. I mean there's probably a lot of rules that you can follow that help this a lot like get to the highway as quickly as possible or something like that even then. It's just the amount of computation. You know to fetch. All of these pass. Must be absolutely extraordinary. Means mind blowing. It is and you know it's interesting because you're like skimming the surface in a way to like to kind of think about it from this perspective is we're just talking about like ways a little bit like there are many many different rules of the road. For what our commercial vehicle restrictions so if you have you probably seen these on the road even through the highway you know if you said okay no no chocks you know through this certain highway or through a certain town and that's usually due to a weight restriction of potentially hazardous material restriction so certain vehicles depending on their you know cargo or capacity or vehicle constraints actually can't go on certain roads and they can't use navigation applications like ways or google maps because they might send them down the wrong road and you know it's you know maybe not the worst thing for many things if you're a little overweight it's not good for the road not good for the infrastructure at the same time you know. This happens all the time that ah vehicle runs into the bottom of a bridge. So low bridges are a major concern. So imagine imagine you're a business owner and you know you've planned this route in your driver. Get you get a call in the next thing you know like half of the truck has been kind of like a can opener and you know. That's not a fun. Call nothing fun to deal with. An.

"And now it's become this necessity and so people are using it more and more and so it's just interesting how we have to take that technology and balance between okay. Well how do we make sure that we're also not doing things like killing the environment. And so i. I really see like that being on the forefront of hey we know we need to get to renewable resources. We know that electric's coming but how do we make sure efficient and get to that point. So technology is really interesting in how we can leverage it and so many different ways for the greater good yet. It makes sense. I think there's a similar thing in robotics re say you know once. A robot is a necessity. It's called an appliance right. So it's like your dishwasher. You don't call that a robot anymore. it's now just an appliance and rubio probably becoming appliance. It's just a matter of time. So i've got a five year old and are you telling me that you know if he doesn't have to learn how to drive because there will be self driving cars were just gonna call them in appliance not a car. Yeah or yeah. At least we won't be calling it a robot right. We'll call it. Yeah we'll call it just a car. Exactly yeah i. I told my son. It's a robot car when we pass by one of those waymo self driving cars and Yeah i think that now it's gonna make sense to call it a robot. Are you that you'd have to it a car. So let's talk about like jumping into the to pivoting to tech a little bit so or even you know before we get to tech just kind of going top down so someone opens up at. I'm just going to pick something of ways right or one of these Apps and and they just a single point destination they say. I want to go to the grocery store you know. There's a whole search to find. The grocery store will leave that aside but you know we get the coordinates of the grocery store. What actually happens. That generates that single path for somebody from their house to the grocery store like what magic is actually happening to make that show up. you know. it's a really great question that i'd say that i don't necessarily even totally understand the magic myself. I'm sure if i pulled you know our co founder. Into the conversation you know he would have a pretty good answer for you and understand. The different data sets that are involved. So i'd say that one's a little bit beyond my even my own technical know-how. But you know i do know that it's a lot about just big data right and that's probably a term that's thrown around. But what actually happens is just. There's a lot of computing power. That happens to make that very simple thing. Actually come to life. I know that because if we talk about one point on the map. Now let's talk about you know. Just eight points on the map and the actual number of possible variations to build that route starts to become exponential so if we start building that the actual number of calculations starts to become mine mind-numbingly high to the point. Where my simple brain starts to not understand how it is that that all works how. Those algorithms are applied. So it's a lot happening behind the scenes that even i don't understand so maybe that gives hope to others to understand that you don't have to necessarily know you know tau to build an engine you know if you want to drive a car for example like driving a car you really just need to learn. Okay here's the gas pedal. Here's the steering wheel you know. Here's the break very important piece. You don't have to know exactly how an engine works you. just you know. Learn to drive the car in you trust it. Yeah i think it's a really good call out because you know you could. Just let's say get the data from like there's this thing called open street map so i think it's called and they have all the streets and they'll even tell us that a major road is a highway and so if you have a point like i have this grocery store at this location you could find. Let's say the nearest street which that is self could be a problem because maybe the parking lot is not actually the nearest street. But let's put that one aside and say you can find the nearest street or at least some place on a street where you need to go and then you could treat all the little streets as lions and just similar to solving a maze where you try one route and you have to do some backtracking. Maybe you you try to go close to the grocery store but you hit a dead end and so i have to back up a little bit. This is in in the planning. So you're not literally doing this with your car but but in a planning is after back up a little bit and try something else just like you at a race align in a while you're trying to solve it and so you could eventually you kind of get that path but then you it gets really complicated because you know in a maze. You're not too concerned about the path itself. Like no one's really holding like ignorance expected you to find the shortest path through the maze and the maze. Also kind of spatial so so every direction. You know just going as fast as your pencils moving. But you're in the real world you have different speed limits. Some roads have traffic lights. Some don't i know for me. Google maps always seems to take me on the highway and maybe it is faster but it is kind of a pain. Just get on the highway for two stops. When i could have just taken a straight line you know and so. That's one where it's like. Dennis not even about the fastest time. It's about the best experience for the driver. Yeah i mean if you think about ways. One of their unique advantages was being able to build that data set and that data set was user generated feedback so that user generated data where someone could go into a really easy clean interface that was easy to use and start to report things. And so you know. I still use ways myself Am i allowed to say that working at route from me. Actually yeah we could interject a little bit. What is route for me. Does route for me compliments way like do you do. It does point. Okay got it. You know we don't consider ourselves really a navigation app. Necessarily you know we're more four on the route planning for more complex high volume or high number of stops with advanced constraints. I mean you mentioned a few of them you know. There's one way streets there stoplights. There's whether there's Time you know. There's all kinds of different constraints so planning routes can get really complex really quickly and you know navigating routes once you have the sequence you know navigating is wonderful to us something if you're able to use something like ways and that user generated feedback. I love using those navigation applications and you know maybe it tells me there's police ahead or construction or tells me to take you know a path that in real time is generating that data from other users who unfortunately may be got stuck in a little traffic but are kind of helping me following behind to make sure that i don't make that traffic worse so it's a wonderful thing. You talk about technology kind of solving problems you know as they're happening. Yeah yeah makes sense. Yeah so i think yeah. And i mean what one thing that's always struck me is how expensive that space is right. I mean think about when. You're when you have google maps on your dashboard and you're driving someplace all those roads that you see on that map and they're all passing by you at fifty miles an hour. Maybe more.

"Programming throwdown episode. One hundred fifteen route planning with parker would would take it away jason. Everybody's so this is one thing that i'm sure a lot of people are wondering i've always wondered. I feel like. I'm going to learn a ton today. I'm really looking forward to it. But you know when you do something like use google maps or ways or any of these even people who remember mapquest. You generates this path and that is just really fascinating if you think about it i mean there's an unbelievable amount like enormous network of roads right and manages to figure out how to do that. It takes into account like speed limits and it just seems like there's extraordinary complexity there and we're actually going to not only cover that but even take it to the next level where in this case you know what if you were driving a ups truck or something and you have a whole host plays you have to go to or even. Maybe you have a list of aaron genie to run you know. How do we actually do that efficiently. And i think it's a fascinating fascinating. Topic rented dive deep into it. So lucky that we have parker woodward here. Who is the route expert at route for me as a ton of experience in this field so thanks for coming on show parker. Thanks jason. Don't worry people still actually use mapquest really always wondering actually so so it exists right. Well i've seen it exists. People are still using it and people are using a host of other things to plan the routes. We had a customer who actually plan the routes on cocktail napkins at happy hour. So we've had we've seen a little bit of everything. Oh nice very cool. that's awesome. So yeah how did you. I think this is going to be really interesting. Because you know route expert is a title that seems to be one that like is out of reach for a lot of people but a lot of people don't see. What is the path that i can take from. Maybe my algebra two course right now to route expert and so amazing to hear your kind of story you know. How did you kind of get to where you are. And what was that that whole pathway. Sure so i took maybe a nontraditional path and I was in the entrepreneurial world and studied in college actually something totally different and it was more about conservation in biology in animal behaviour and different types of systems. You know in comparison to route planning and it was always fascinated with energy and conservation inefficiency in happened to really stumble across this opportunity. Without for me. And at the time i was doing kind of transitioning into the fascinating world of the web and software and building software and so i just found out from me and got involved with the to co-founders they started in two thousand nine and really interesting story there as well very entrepreneurial. One of them was kind of looking for an apartment and they didn't really have an app back then. That would help them on the mobile phone to kind of build an efficient route. When you're going to see five ten fifteen twenty places. So you're spending a lot of time going around so our ceo and in founder. Dan cassius built the first web or sorry mobile app that would optimize in planner out for you so it could be efficient. So he was apartment hunting at the time and his buddy from college George struggle if he you know got involved and they took it to the next level and they started listening to customers more and more and i got involved and you know next thing you know you just start to learn about this. So it's sort of a burgeoning field. It's if someone's interesting becoming a a routing expert a lot of it is about dealing with people and product and also processes and you'll be amazed at these companies that you know they're trying to figure it out too and so you know as you get exposure to more and more about how to implement these solutions in how to really make efficiency gains. You just learn along the way so. I think that's the best best way to learn anything. It's just go out and do it. Yeah that's that's really really good advice. And it's super interesting. We have a lot of folks who have a variety of different degrees or maybe didn't go to college and have a different background. Maybe have a trade and so they feel like how do i really get started in this field. In one thing we tell out of folks is is a startup or a smaller company is a really good way to get your foot in the door because many of them will. You'll have a real person look at every resume whereas if you send your resume off to you know some giant tech company they probably some automated system your resume my literally not be seen by a human eye for but smaller companies. That are in your area. You'll get a chance to really impress them yet. They definitely have systems and software in place. I think there's even software that you can actually engage in kind of beef up your resume so it gets beyond the bots so it's an interesting world in. It's one of those things. If someone's really looking to get started in this there's nothing really holding you back to kind of say. Hey i want to go do this and don't be afraid of the nose like you might get ten knows from even a small company says. Hey we can't do that right now or anything like that but try to look to provide value you know if you wanna learn routing and route optimization which i think is a wonderful space because i really truly believe were helping to save the planet and save the world especially as more and more carbon emissions are being omitted. More and more vehicles are going on the road. Hopefully we're getting towards the electrical..

Show spring in an interview with NPR's Mary Louise Kelley Woodward comes to the conclusion that the president failed to protect the country from the virus. She's here with us now and Mary Louise This is not the first book to paint a picture of a chaotic trump administration having difficulties responding to unexpected crises. What sets it apart? Hey, Audie I mean what? What Bob Woodward say is, this is a window in to the president's mind at Woodward got extraordinary access something like nine hours cumulative of interviews, and often these were interviews that were unfolding in the evening. There were no White House aides around there was nobody to rein in the president's or say you know we're done. That's enough of that line of questioning. So what would was able to to question him at length and over months and try to gauge how the president's understanding was was evolving in on everything from from racial justice to the pandemic, which has been the thing that's made a lot of headline so far to foreign policy. And that part of this book has gotten less play. It is really interesting what some of what Woodward learned about other threats beyond the pandemic facing our country and our national security including one. Let me let you hear this where I asked about a recent threat that was a lot more urgent than many of us realised based on your reporting. How close did we come to war with? North Korea. I. Think. Given North, Korea's a rogue nation they have as I report. Probably, a couple of dozen nuclear weapons well, hidden and concealed. That I it. Scared Secretary of Defense Madness so much that he would sleep in his gym clothes there was a light in his bathroom. Is he if he was in the shower and they detected a North Korean launch, he was worried he might have to. Issue Orders for a nuclear strike yes. Exactly. What but but not just shoot down incoming missile yes. Because what if the first missile was coming toward the United States and the there was a possibility it had a nuclear weapon. President trump and president trump told me this. He authorized Secretary of Defense Mattis on his own to shoot it down. If Kim. saw that he might launch all of his other weapons. I quote mad as say, no one. Has a right to incinerate millions of people but he had to face that he was not worried that trump was going to launch against North Korea. Preemptively, he believed that the problem was Kim Jong on the North Korean leader in the Epilogue, you write about Mattis about secretary of State Rex, Tillerson about director of National Intelligence coach, the trio of original senior the now senior national security team, all of whom in your judgment. Were acting in good faith. Well, intentioned trying to answer a call public service. You'd say to the reader to slow down. Think about this for a moment, the top national security leaders thought the president of the United States was a danger to the country. In your decades reporting on Washington have you ever encountered that? Well, in the case of Nixon the. Congress and the Republican leaders in. Congress decided that Nixon was criminal and should not serve and went to him and told him that it was over and I'm talking but senior national security leaders who served this president coming out and saying not just I don't like him anymore not just. I. Disagreed with this or that policy, but he poses a threat to the security of the country. No..

Of anything why would he sit down with Bob Woodward thinking that the story is that he thought that he could win Bob Woodward over. With his charm and That to me, it should probably rank up there with certainly the top one hundred. Crazy things that trump has done in the last four years I mean the idea that you know the guy that brought down the Nixon and has had a storied. career in journalism. Holding leaders accountable with somehow be won over by trump's charm. I mean that really does show. A little bit of of tortured thinking on trump's part. The stable genius it was maybe thinks he's more charming than Richard Nixon is that. On here. Well that might be true but. That's a low bar. No. I know.

"The Woodward book, whether you stay down plays well, I think if you said in order to reduce panic, perhaps that so the fact is I'm a cheerleader for this country. I love our country and I don't want people to be frightened. I don't want to create panic as you say. And certainly I'm not going to drive this country or the world into a frenzy. We want to show confidence. We want to show strength. We want to show strength as a nation, and that's what I've done and we've done very well. We've done well from any standard. You look at our numbers compared to other countries or the parts of the world. It's been an amazing job that we've done.

The job we've done has been incredible, but we don't want to. We don't want to instill panic. We don't want to jump up and down and start shouting that we have a problem. That is tremendous. Problems scare everybody, and I'll tell you the other thing. We immediately started buying all over the world. We started buying masks and gowns and everything else, And we don't want to cause pricing to go up to a level that becomes almost unaffordable. So yeah, and that sense So in that sense, I agree with that. Yes, please. How do you reassure the American public going forward that they can trust what you're saying? Well, I think that's really a big part of trance. We have to have leadership. We have to show leadership and the last thing you want to do is Create a panic in the country. This was a horrible thing it was sent to us by China should not have happened should never have happened. This is a disgusting, terrible situation that was foisted upon us, and we have to show we just don't want to use the best word is panic. We don't want to have to show panic. We're not going to show panic, and that's exactly what I did. And I was very open. Whether it's the Woodward or anybody else. It's just another political hitch up, but whether it was Woodward or anybody else You cannot show a sense of panic or you're gonna have bigger problems than you have had before. Please.
