Because i'm like fuck. I've been been sitting on my bid that way. That's exactly why it is and so but anyone else with would go to an elbow specialist and so you go to an elbow species. All this is the problem with the elbow. Never look any further than that. And that's the way. Our medical system has worked for all of our problems. If you if you go if you have epilepsy you go to an epilepsy specialist. When it's actually the dietitian that could fix it for you. Yeah you know you go. You go to a psychologist when it's actually a fuck in a fitness trainer. That could fix step part of it for you or a life. Coach could fix that path for you or relationship coach. It could fix that part for you. Know it's to start looking at the human experience from a far more listrik view and people don't like the tomb holistic just it just means by looking at all all angles the whole of not not that you have to sniff some essential oils. That seems to be all the rage. Now that's fixes everything. Apparently but hey. I think has its place does not exactly. That's so you don't really help me with my 'cause i i had a traumatic brain injury from a head on car collision my fault and i had impulsive rage like it really changed my personality. I would go around and beat anybody. Who did anything means anybody else. Like suddenly became the watchdog and would like try to fight people on the street. And not so good. When you're five foot two female. And but i had this massive tantrum. I was a hairdresser at the time. And i saw the salon owner. Like really picking on this other quite like junior staff member. And i was like ooh. Fuck it and pick on somebody. I put my scissors down. And let's go motherfucker and you just like what. And i said you are gone. And i'm chasing. I myself like a bad limp. At this point i chase him in the back room and i'm banging on the door i'm like come out like a man. And then so. He locked himself in. There wouldn't come out so then i'm like okay. Well maybe i should go back and finish cutting this guy's hair cutting the grass saturday's like you had a bad accident and i'm like. Oh yeah can you tell by my limp. And he's like no. I can tell by your behavior. And he's like i'm a cranial osteopath. I could really help you. Here's my card. And so it gives me and my his card. And i'm like oh fuck why not and so i go along and literally two sessions of him just like putting his hands on my head and my impulse rage completely went away. Well maybe not completely. But it was amazed that's brilliant. It helped with the epilepsy. And all of that and my limp was gone after. Like four sessions with him. It was amazing. But yeah they're so you tell mike. My grandfather was a doctor. And i told him. That's what fixed me. And he just about had an aneurysm. When i said that because he was like osteopaths do not know what they're talking about and you just mainstream medicine really doesn't want to acknowledge that type of stuff. Yeah well. I went to a cranial sacred therapist recently. Who did nothing for me except except changed my life. Oh and and so what was interesting was that it was a passing comment as i was leaving and so here. Here's the view is like okay. This is fucking weird. Odd gone from militant atheist to right at the other end of the spectrum. And so i've had. I've had a voice speaking to me for about seven or eight years and started yelling at me and i'm like this is fucking. We'd like i'm schizophrenic. This fucking Strange i don't understand it and and it was just angry with me forever. And i couldn't figure out why and it just seemed bored with me. It seemed angry with me. And it just trying to talk to me. And i just didn't quite understand it and then as i'm leaving this cranial saco station. She says to me. Have you ever done automatic writing. And i was like no basically you just by i kind of know what as you just you. Just grab a pen and paper and just write stream-of-consciousness it doesn't need to make scenes. He just just right and she's yeah she said i just. I have a feeling that you should try that. Okay so it home. And i got a diary opinion. I just this is automatic writing on just writing a hope and then this voice started talking to me perfectly and he'd just been waiting for the hindi way it'd be waiting for me. I needed to figure out the right way to actually be able to talk to her and apparently it was through automatic writing not listening. Not meditating not any of these things but the automatic writing and so now him and i can sit down and have these conversations and he tells me stuff and helps me stuff and points to me in the right direction and gives me advice in luck in. I have a. I've a relationship with this fucking weird voice that you like this may am i just talking to myself or is this coming through from somewhere else. Who the fuck knows. So you don't pray. Do you know who the voices i know. I know we're yahu voices who is it. What's interesting is that. I'm as i said earlier.

Did joya talk belic where it has or hasn't changed over yahoo since the deal was announced back in by yeah so obviously a fairly new announcement. She couldn't really get into too much of it because the deal hasn't been finalized and all that but at the end she did talk about some of the. I guess prospects for this change and how she anticipates it to be a positive For the company so she'll get into a little bit on it but yeah ultimately unfortunately not too much could be said about the actual Deal and who obviously one of the original internet portals been around since the ninety s.

Changes In The Marketing Media Landscape With Former HAVAS Media CEO Colin Kinsella
"Before the internet era when you're thinking of media you know you're talking about tv print billboards radio to me. It sounds like there is someone who's creating the content and you're buying advertising that's placed in it or not really because as an ad agency you're creating the content so give me an example of creating the content. You're not creating a tv show as an ad agency out a tv show you're creating a levi's jeans s- and they have incredible story line. They've got richness and dutch and if there's another company trying to go against them say the gap you can see big differences between who's going to buy levi's induced by the captured so understanding which target you're going after and what media you think that target is going to absorb more quickly or more in alignment with that ran all of a sudden you start to make a much tighter connection with that person. So the pre internet era media on the integration of is really an advertising play. Eventually you get into the digital age. Now you mentioned google and yahoo already but it seems like a big portion of media's actually starting to create your own media or at least your own web assets as the rise of the internet happened how does the definition of meta change a gap water for sure. There were more opportunities for you to put an advertisement in front of somebody so instead of just having the four main vehicles you now had another typical digital but it was message and it could be incredibly focused. Also be incredibly broad and that was kind of a rare one two punch. It's kind of the classic problem that we have right now. The internet's so big and even from the early days. It felt like you could reach anyone which is a great way to spend a lot lot of money. Maybe not necessarily a great way to efficiently. Spend something that. Hopefully we've got better at in the early days. You're getting brands to build their own websites. They're also marketing themselves on what used to be called portals. But you had the all yahu. Google came along pre social media. What were the effective digital channels. And when did you start making the shift from relying on television radio print and out of home to digital. It happened relatively quickly. Because for yahoo specially in the early days google there was no kind of advertising play with google but with the author who they weren't to advertising much quicker and it was like a rocket
The Story of Musician Zohra El Fassia
"Was actually born zara hamou to a jewish family likely around the year. Nineteen o five in the city of steph ru which is in fez region in morocco in fez of courses the city that would eventually give her regional stage name alpha zia which means the woman from she was born to her mother naomi and father yahu and we don't know much about officias early life but we do know that her father was a butcher trade and a hudson or a cantor in his off time so we can guess that she would have been hearing in may be singing eden literature music from a pretty young age. We also know that she likely went to school for a little bit as a young girl. Zora was wed at a very very young age to a man from fez named don and she had her first daughter masa likely when she was around thirteen years old and she had two more children sam in a net and at the same time she also began to kind of scope out the music scene in fez going to hear to musicians who would hear her sing and encourage her to sing more which she began to do at private celebrations and weddings and even small venues. We know that likely around the age of eighteen she actually got divorced and eventually made her way to casablanca so her kids. Her first three kids mostly grew up with their father and his new wife in their family and in blanca. She starts a new relationship with one.

Yahoo's Ugly Death
"The name is synonymous with a time when all of our lives were simpler when facebook was an actual books full of students faces computers made weird sounds when the connected to the Internet and downloading a one minute long video can take all night. Eddie tight yet who was one of the four or five most popular websites in the world with billions of views, every month and evaluation well, over one hundred, billion dollars. But as the two thousands turned into twenty tens, the web changed massively and your who was faced with the difficult task of changing with it. Their web portal service model was going out of fashion. We all moved to g mail and Google Search, McCain the front page of the Internet. Despite the fact that ask Jeeves was obviously way better. Many of Yahoo's services remained relatively popular, but they were no longer trendsetting no longer growing and the company's market capitalization dropped to a fraction of what it once was any remnant of the mindshare or what we might refer to as v Cultural. Capital they once held fell off. So to those of us on the outside yeah, who's fall seemed utterly quiet gradual and most of all inevitable but was it really Forget what you think. You know at least for a moment and consider this from the peak of the DOT COM bubble. Some say the beginning of the end for Yahoo to two thousand, eight, their revenue increased tenfold that success was no fluke either as print publishers struggled with the incoming revolution of online advertising, Yahu was very much on top of it. They were positioned Willie enough that when Microsoft attempted to buy the company for forty, five, billion dollars in. Two Thousand and eight CO founder and CEO Jerry Yang swiftly rejected the offer it was over the following few years that things would start to ten at the company transitioned through five different CEOS in just four years, and in the meantime Google took over the Internet. This would seem like the end of the story except in two thousand and twelve yen made arguably the most significant tire in its history and new CEO who could finally get things going again. Marissa Mayer. was distant for such a role from the beginning. Some college students have hard time in the job market, but after completing her degree at Stanford, Marissa was offered fourteen different jobs including teaching Gig at Carnegie Mellon One of America's leading engineering schools and consulting role at Mackenzie. Arguably, the world's premier consulting for the Young Maria turned down both those offers to become the twentieth employees at a fledgling startup called Google. At Google, she was star in fact, there's hundred percent chance you've run into her work. She oversaw the design of Google's homepage. You know the one you use probably ten times a day she was also one of the three people behind Google Edwards. It's difficult to overstate the importance of Edwards to the Internet as a whole and to the company itself to give you some sense of it. Though, at one point Edwards provided ninety six percent of Google's entire revenue. In fact, you could argue that Edwards and by proxy Melissa Samaya was at least partly responsible for the fall of. yahoos revenue multiplied tenfold between two thousand and two thousand and eight in no small part because of their online advertising. But he declined even faster when Google they're smaller competitor designed a better wage, you connect advertisers with users based on search results. Edwards. So, by the principle that if you can't beat him, you should join him Yahoo in two thousand and twelve hired Marissa Mayer. It was bald and popular choice. The company's stock rose two percent. The day of the announcement Meyer instantly became an icon for women in an industry dominated by men. Then, she got to work changing the company culture. She opened an online portal for employee complaints a system whereby any office problem given sufficient votes by employees would be automatically investigated by management. She oversaw a personnel shift which brought remote employees back into the company's offices Fortune magazine put her in their forty under forty list and ranked her as the sixteenth most powerful businesswoman on the planet. In short things were finally looking up for Ya. At least from the outside on the inside, however, the really really inside a very different story was about to be reading.
Florida's Complete Phase 1 Reopening Happens As COVID-19 Cases Rise
"Restaurants and retail stores can reopen today in Florida's largest counties Miami Dade County and Broward County. Those two counties waited longer than the rest of Florida but now they move ahead allowing non essential businesses to operate. Npr's Greg Allen can do a little bit of shopping if he feels like in Miami Either Greg I steve. How're you doing? Okay what's open? What's not well know in Florida here two weeks ago. The governor allowed non-essential businesses statewide reopen. But as you say Miami Dade in Broward County's waited a little longer while they worked on detailed guidelines in Miami Dade the guidelines are one hundred and seventy five pages of information that tell businesses what they can and where they can't do. The businesses re opening day include things like restaurants retail stores malls and personal services. Things like barbershops beauty salons I believe. Tattoo Parlors also will be open today. Okay gyms remained closed for now in Miami Dade and Broward County. Although the governor said they can't open elsewhere in the state also nightclubs movie theaters and hotels will be closed and beaches will be shut down for for the time being here in Miami Dade and Broward counties elsewhere in Florida. The rules are little looser. In most other counties gyms beaches will be open again and in Orlando Disney is beginning to reopen. Its shopping district there. Disney springs today. no word though and when the. Shah theme parks sells might consider reopening. Okay so yes to shopping yesterday. Tattoos to a day at the beach Little Bit of change here but the state at the same time has been seeing an increase in cases. How does that match up with the idea of reopening rights? Really still not really exactly clear. What's going on Florida's a very big state with many rural counties where there are still fewer few cases at all but over the last several days. There's been an increase in cases in several metropolitan areas in Florida Central Florida and South Florida. The in Orlando for example for example. There's generally not been a lot of cases there but about a week. After the county opened nonessential businesses. The number of infections there has climbed back to where it was a month ago. And just you're talking about a few dozen a day but still that's concerning we've seen a rise of cases in some counties even before they opened up again and that was that was the case in Palm Beach County over the weekend we saw. Yahu News reported that the Department of Homeland Security Identified Palm Beach County as a hot spot for one nineteen with a seventy one percent increase in new cases compared with the previous week and the numbers are are higher than what the states reporting. But it's clear the case Syrup and it began before the county there reopened on May Eleventh. Okay so maybe the reopening is not the cause of the increase but is the increased causing people to rethink the reopening right. What all along that officials have said they're going to watch the cases very closely and I think they think they can isolate them through contact tracing and testing you know at this point but they say they will react as necessary. State local officials say the decision. To begin reopening is data driven and cases had been trending downward until this recent upswing. And we're not seeing every part of the state. Mostly you're seeing in places like Miami Palm Beach County Jacksonville. Few other areas officials say that they've increased testing. That's one reason for the new cases but the confident hospitals have plenty of capacity. You know the beds and ventilators available to handle any new cases as the state reopens. Here's the mayor of miami-dade County Carlos Jimenez but if we follow the rules that are established that are laid out in this plan. Then we shouldn't see a spike or any increases in infection because following these rules will keep us saying and the rules. You're in all the ones that requires social distancing and employees and customers and all these businesses will all be wearing masks. Okay Greg thanks very much. You're welcome that's NPR's Greg Allen in Miami.
I Fear My Spouse Will Abandon Me
"Here with my co host Gabe. And of course I'm here with my co host. Jackie and we were talking this morning about something. That's been weighing pretty heavily on your mind and I thought let's make this into an episode because that's our lives so you've been talking a lot about anxiety around the idea of your wife leaving you it. It's true I don't know why she's giving me no reason to think this. I just I wish and another kind of a messed up thing to say but I wish that she gave me a reason to feel this way because then I wouldn't feel so crazy we've been married almost eight years. There's no problems were not in the middle of fight. I just have this gut got visceral strong feeling that the woman's GonNa leave me. Have you had this feeling in your marriage with Kendall or at any past relationships before well? I'm having this feeling in my marriage with Kendall right now no but like previously like. Has this ever happened before no no? It's never happened before with Kendall. It has happened. You know what no no? This is the first time I ever been jealous or had these feelings ever in my life. You know now that I think about it. No when all of my other relationships ended I was completely blindsided. I have always been the dumped. Never the dumpy. Because yeah yeah well. My first marriage it just turns out women don't like to be married to untreated by polars in my my second marriage. We're still friends which is weird but it was messed up Okay another thing yeah. It's like memory lane. Thanks thanks. You'RE WELCOME. That's what we're here for you miserable but your talking about this in therapy which like. Yahu for therapy we know I love it. What is your therapists? Say My therapist lakes through this thing called chain analysis where we know that I have this feeling so now. Let's back up to why I have the feeling so and then when you connect those things you can work on it. The problem is backwards. Doesn't lead anywhere. I have this feeling. Okay what's the one step back? Well I don't want my wife to leave me because I love her. Okay what's the one step back from that? Has She giving you any reason? No the best that I can come up with is my wife. She's beautiful she's intelligent and this is one of the burdens of marrying somebody way younger than you either. She was like twenty six when we got married. And now she's not she's she's just achieved so much in the last eight years and she's not the same person and this person is so incredible that it would be lunacy for her to stay with me. What do you bring to your marriage? I bring bipolar disorder to our marriage a panic disorder and anxiety disorder. I mean those are those are some some pretty nifty things to to bring into a marriage. Okay right but what else do you bring to your marriage smart ass? Obviously I do bring things to the marriage I I do all the cooking. I do all the cleaning. I handle like the household or tasks like you know. The the minutia of life is all handled by me. I do bring that to the marriage. Okay but I'm going to ask you again. What else do you bring to the miracle? Basely like I'm her personal assistant through all of those things. What else makes your marriage uniquely yours. Because you're in it. I just told you I was her personal assistant. I am her personal assistant. I I handle all of that stuff for her. Which is why it wouldn't be so big of a loss to lose me. The other day I said to Kendall if I left you would have all the same things that you have now except the dog. I'm taking the dog. And she said no right. Yeah yeah she said no you sweet loving hug me kissed me told me. I was wonderful but come on which is supposed to say. You can't tell the dude that you're married to that you're living with. Yeah that's a good point. I could hire all of the things that you do for me and not have to tolerate your dumb ass okay. You're looking at all literally the physical things that you bring to your marriage right you are there you do all of these things that are like. I am physically exist in the same room as my wife. What you're not remembering or not seeing or not acknowledging is that you bring more to your marriage and just like the acts you perform and the reason why this is really important to me personally is because I live with two chronic illnesses one of which could make me completely physically unable to take care of myself at any moment literally at any minute. Ms could be like you can't walk anymore. You can't feed yourself. This is Real Fun Party. So you bring more to your merits and just like the AX. You perform for her. You offer her companionship. You offer her comedic relief. You offer her emotional support in everything. I'm sure and while I'm sure you're gonNA tell me it doesn't matter because you're bipolar. Because you detract a as much as you give Blah Blah Blah. You're failing to see that. The root of your marriage is the relationship you have formed with Kendall and all those other things are like a bonus. I'm not a stupid person. I agree with you and if the tables were turned if you were calling me up and you were saying Gabe Adams GonNa leave me. I would say all of the things to you that you are now saying to me and I get it. I get the idea that Kendall is a grown woman and if she is chosen to be married to me she obviously wants to be married to me and she is getting something out of it. I I don't know maybe I make the best spaghetti. I listen. I honestly don't know what it is and I have asked her. I have like why would you be married to me? And she's like well. My life is never boring. Why is this a priority? What do you mean your life is never boring one have you looked around? We live in suburbia all the houses. Look the same. Our life is boring as fuck. I just I can't find that thing I just. I can't find that thing in lieu of turning this into full blown therapy because as we know I love therapy. I'm not good at giving it to other people. Are you saying that you're not a licensed therapist? I am not. I also don't know how to therapies other people so I'm just taking what I've learned here. I would encourage you to go to Kendall and ask her to work to elaborate and maybe she's good in writing. Maybe she's good at talking like speak to her strengths of helping her. Understand what you bring to your marriage because I assume that it's never boring. Is a umbrella statement for a lot of tiny things that are great about you and what you bring to your marriage but a therapy session over what is really happening. Here is a lot of unwarranted anxiety. And you're trying to navigate it right. I'm just scared that she's going to leave. And I feel that I need a backup plan for when it happens and the keyword there. Being when I've been through two divorces I had a significant relationship where we live together and my biological father took one look at me when I was born. I was like yeah. No I've suffered a lot of loss of people who are alive and I haven't even gotten into the loss I've suffered from people who have passed away and I've lost a lot of people relationships jobs social status from living with bipolar disorder. So loss is just ingrained. It's just ingrained into me. In fact I firmly believe that I have lost more people than I have gained. And what happens when Kendall is one of them? I don't want to be caught with my pants down. That's not a double entendre. Just I sincerely mean I just. I don't WanNa be alone. I don't WanNa call my mom and dad and tell them that I blew another marriage. I don't WanNA reach over in the middle of the night and have nobody be there and I want to know how to protect myself from that happening. Because if she goes away. That's going to happen to me. That's going to happen to me again and I don't know that I can get through it for a fifteenth time. Oh I have so many things I wanNA say and most of them are encouraging first and foremost like you know that you will get through it because evidence of your life has shown that you have gotten through it every time you survived right. It may not have been pretty but you did it. You're still here. All those other losses did not destroy to the point of no return. I know you're GonNa want like say well but you know I did get admitted. Bal right like all those other things but like you're saying I'm here. I'm very resilient at being dumped. You're a functioning human being. You'RE ON THE PLANET. You have survived everything so far greater Sure but come on. There's people that have had their limbs hacked off that survived. I don't subscribe to this notion that whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. Oh I don't either. There's lots of things that don't kill you. That make you really fucking weak agree but at the root of it all you have gotten through all of it right. It wasn't fun you didn't want to but you did you got through all of it. I did. And you currently lead a life. That is good and happy and sustainable. And let's talk about that for a moment. You're right. This is the best I've ever been and sincerely that's part of the problem. This is the best my life has ever been. I am forty three years old. This is the most stable. This is the happiest this is the healthiest. This is the wealthiest. This is the most in love. This is the everything I mean even if we want to like turn it into you know. Money Equals Happiness. Well I've got the biggest house. I've got the nicest car and I've got the least amount of debt if you WANNA turn it into. Oh it's the people you know. I Know Kendall kindles amazing. I know you Jackie your amazing. I have like two best friends. I'm not saying I don't want more friends. I'm just we all want more but if I just take base look at what I have. It's the most I ever had and all I can think of and all that goes through my mind is this is the most I will lose so when you talk about will I get through it. I don't know I've never fallen from this

"yahu" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"A little later. We'll good evening everybody. I want to start the first segment with a bit of good news. Ooh Good News. I didn't see this covered in any of the previous episodes recently. I know we talk a lot about this type of thing on free. Talk live through. The variety of hosts and guest hosts that we have. And it's one of the things that has sort of been a pet peeve of mine for a long long time and that is well in the states where marijuana is legal recreationally before they even passed a law. Saying that okay now you can buy it and use it and sell it recreationally The first thing they should've have done of course was opened up the prison cells of all of the non violent people that have been convicted of having the SP- recreational plant in their pocket when they've done no harm to any you know physical person or anybody's property as a result of it and restore the right to keep and bear arms because being one of those people that you're talking about that's the thing that still I mean that impacts my everyday life You know not just and it puts you at risk for some really funky things like getting arrested for having garden tools right which happened to you. It's true yeah and we know that the right to defend yourself is there regardless of what laws say if you were in a house and somebody had some guns out on the table and somebody broke in you picked up one of those guys that were not yours and shot the intruder. That would still be legal. Yeah I can tell I I actually have that case or similar similar it would have been on point in in an appeal where I was. There were a couple of people locals and they're out chocking in the square and just drying on things in shock and one of our local haters was harassing them and to make a long story. Short there was a minor riot on on On the king common over Chock which is hard to believe and drama in a small town and during that period I was on probation and I picked up an iron bar and I used it in a menacingly way to cause three of the attackers to change directions. I never actually hit them but I convince them that they should be some place cell and so anyway they called that again being a felon in possession of a of a deadly weapon and I I went in. I said well after it became a weapon the moment I had I had the intent to use it as a weapon. Yes but by that point that was overridden by my right to self defense and you're right Although I did get convicted of smoking weed dismissed the The rioting and the felony possession charge. So you'll be Particularly happy I know. You're an advocate for marijuana law reform As well as are many hosts of free talk live. This article from Yahu was right around Valentine's Day. Nearly sixty six thousand we'd convictions dating back to Nineteen sixty-one dismissed in Los Angeles County. Nice Nice that is that that is truly wonderful.

How Tech Has Changed Over the Past 10 Years
"Listeners already. So hey it's that time of the year when we look back. Get some of the great things that happened. But Hey it's twenty nine thousand nine hundred twenty twenties right around the corner. Let's look back at the decade at Beg from USA has just written a great piece. About how tech has changed in the last ten years. And he's here with US ed. Hi I'm doing fine. So when you compiled old ten years into one little article what jumped out at you. Well it's Funny Jeff. The very first word of my articles what jumped in my in my head when I look back at twenty ten Dan Alexa in twenty ten beginning of the year. If I said you Alexa you'd go. WHO's that some female name right? Well of course we know Alexa became through the decade. The Voice of the Amazon Echo and numerous other products Alexa helped Echo in some of the other voices. We've gotten familiar with like the Google assistant so on so that was not not around at the start of the decade. How about Uber? Had anyone taken a an uber ride in two thousand ten. nope not yet. That was still a ways off and even facebook which was starting to get really popular around the start of the decade. You know that's when he started notice. Wow everybody I know is starting to show up here. You know kid kid I went to elementary. School is here in person. I went to summer camp with his ear. That started to become a big deal at the start of the decade of course later on on facebook Not only got really big but started having all these privacy and data scandals and and all of that so those are some of the things that immediately leapt to mind and we we can talk about particular products. The IPAD hadn't even launched in twenty ten in early two thousand ten it. It was introduced by Steve Jobs in January that year and then came out in the spring and of course instagram. The other big up that a lot of people use yeah instagram. I mean you can go down the list of things that were not there in two thousand ten and certainly and you know we're something of a big deal by the end of the decade chrome Os and Chromebooks for example Warren around yet And think also about some of the companies that were dominant at the start of the decade. No longer the case obviously blackberry. Nokia nose or to to that immediately leapt to mind. I'll give you two more Yahu. AOL I mean they're still around but their shells of their former self.

Netanyahu says fraud allegations are an attempted coup
"President trump is called the impeachment process. A lot of things well recently. Another world leader is found himself under criminal investigation. And he's actually. I used similar language to fend himself yesterday. Benjamin Netanyahu the Israeli Prime Minister the close ally of president trump trump was indicted by prosecutors in Israel. These bribery and corruption allegations had been hanging over his head for months. But now you've got a prime minister officially charged and don't Oh forget he's still kind of running for another term. ABC's Jonah Miller with us. She was reporting from Netanyahu's residents yesterday as this was unfolding. So I mean Jonah. How significant what is this for? Netanyahu this is very significant. I mean it's now really unclear if he's going to be able to even stay in office office run again possibly have the mandate for a new government. And that's because of the charges. Brad I mean. The prime minister now is charged. Bribery fraud and breach of trust and that bribery charge is the one that may really do him in. Yahoo was accused of accepting luxury goods in exchange for political liberal favors at of helping media companies in exchange for positive news stories. Netanyahu denies the charges. Tonight calling it quote an attempted coup. He's look at the evidence. Is that the attorney general. Put out there the time Yahu through his intermediaries really controlled headlines. The placement of stories who could be hired and fired even Asian negative stories about his opponents. The question is can even stay in power. You know run the country while under these charges. Legally he doesn't have to step down but he's already already coming under a lot of pressure. Israel is reading this possibility it could be yet another election the third this year. We'll yet you're done. I I remember because Netanyahu who was in this election with his opponent either them quite got enough votes that they needed. They've been trying to like form. This coalition government has been happening so at this point would they have another election. What happens next? It's a lot of kind of uncertainty right now. First of all the mandate now To form the next government has been turned over to the parliament right where each lawmaker has three weeks to maybe try to rally sixty one snow members behind him informed government now. No one really thinks that's going to happen but the question question. Now is Netanyahu a now that he's under criminal charges including bribery. Can he received the mandate for new government. It's unclear and I'll tell you already. Brad Netanyahu's rivals are drafting petitions for the Supreme Court Seeking clarification whether Netanyahu Oh can receive the mandate right 'cause since he's the caretaker prime minister he doesn't legally have to step down. But where can you go from here. You know the next government has to be formed and he just may not be a part of it just a crucial moment for Israel and the US is the US changed its stance on exactly what we think is okay for Israel to do in the West Bank Jonah Miller other fascinating moment will let you get back to thank you.

The Rookie Pilot Who Was Ready to Give Her Life on September 11th
"Eleventh two thousand one Lieutenant Heather Penney waits on a runway at Maryland's Andrews Air Force Base. He's ready to fly that morning to commercial airliners crashed into the World Trade Center towers in New York. A third flew into into the Pentagon. A fourth hijacked airliner seemed to be hurtling toward Washington. Penny had a simple mission. Stop Stop It. She didn't have ammunition missiles though she didn't have anything to attack the plane with except her own plane so that was the plan penny and her commanding officer would fly their fighter jets straight into the hijacked jacked. Boeing seven fifty seven penny was one of the first generations of female combat pilots in the country. Her nickname was lucky she grew up smelling jet fuel. Her father other flew in Vietnam. Though she earned her pilot's license in college at purdue she had no plans to join the military. She majored in literature. She wanted to become a teacher but something else was also holding back a career in the air. Combat Aviation wasn't open to women aw in graduate school that changed and so did everything for Penny. She signed up immediately. She would would become a fighter pilot just like her dead in the fall of two thousand one penny was just a rookie the first female F sixteen pilot ever at one hundred and twenty first fighter squadron of the DC National Air Guard on September eleventh they had just returned from two weeks of air combat training in Nevada.

They assumed it was just some. Yahu in assessment when when it happened to the second tower they knew the situation was different much different it was but in the monumental confusion of those moments it was impossible to get clear orders. Nothing was ready. The jets were still equipped with dummy bullets from the training mission after the plane hit the Pentagon word came almost immediately of a fourth plane taken over by terrorists. It was clear that someone I had to fly weapons or no weapons Colonel Mark Sasseville Barca Penny lucky. You are coming with me. She climbed in and rushed to power up the engines. She didn't have time to go through the routine checks on the plane nor did she. You have time to think about the fact that her father now a captain that United Airlines could have been on one of the hijack flights the the crew chiefs still had his headphones plugged into the fuselage as penny nudged the throttle forward he ran along safety pins from the jet as it moved ahead soaring into the air. They strategized how to hit their target and survive. They hadn't of course ever trained to bring down on airliners but their chances at ejecting just before impact were slim. Penny believed that if they were successful in their mission this would be the last time she ever took off penny and Sasseville never had to complete that mission after flying for hours the two learned learned that United Ninety three had already gone down not in DC but in a field in Pennsylvania the passengers on that flight who learn from loved ones on the ground about the other hijacked planes were willing to do what penny in Southville were going to do anything they fought the terrorist Orissa forcing them straight into the ground penny and Sasseville flew the rest of the day clearing the airspace in escorting the president looking down on the country changed forever.

I feel like people don't just wake up and become masters. Analytics? Analytics? Yahu. Yes. So what did you do before? But it's metrics and then take back to the beginning of your stories. We can figure out how you became the person that you are today. You read over three thousand four thousand four thousand now the library, did I didn't speak English. So that's how I learn represented California that spelling bee in nineteen eighty six. I didn't speak English. I was so antisocial. I'm so shy. I lot of select this. They feel like they have to go out and talk Bill fast and shake, everybody's hands. And I wasn't like that. And I liked to build the measure things and I knew I was good at math invasion. And but when I was in third grade, I saw that this action only had two to three kinds of snacks. So I would go down to the local pharmacy, or drugstore, whatever that I would buy lots of stuff, and I would sell now laters, it was like the great now nat- flavored now laters, and I would buy them at five cents and sell them at seven. And so I did arbitrage and I grew that larger larger, and then I had to use little database in back then it was loaded one-two-three because there wasn't windows and excel. And people would start to take loans from me because the all dollar centennial pay when I get announced, that's Tommy economics topnotch finish. That's taught me it wasn't how much you get paid per hour, but much value can generate inside took that. And I went to the lens of economics, I went to. SMU. I had some mentors. And the magic you're me, you're just some kid. You're selling things from dormitory. You're selling five hundred dollars day or stuff, which the kids pissed off. And then you thinking how do I scale my business, I got to be able to teach other people have got to be able to expand the amount of shopping that I can do. And I realized that mentorship was Ashley king, because I knew how to get the grades on full scholarship. I ran track filthy, one that kind of thing. But the thing that I was missing which I think, entre preneurs need to realize, you're so busy in the execution. Day-to-day optimize business, the traffic, PPC, whatever it is that you forget the people side, and it wasn't until I got out, Casey, who is a CEO of American Airlines, he took me, aside said this, let me open some opportunities for you. Let me introduce you to the CEO of Morgan Stanley. Let me get you a job at my first job is actually American Airlines, that's how I got this thing pissed off a lot of people because I always went to the CEO north. Get mad at me, but it was a combination of that mentorship against the man that really made things happen for me. And actually, if it wasn't for the fact that people open doors for me, then I wouldn't have gotten it to work at Yahoo, Yahoo thing, wouldn't have been escalated into doing with Facebook ads and all this digital stuff like working with you guys. So I have so many questions for you. We're friends could ask those on the interview, but from four thousand books read from, you know, running analytics yahu and, you know, having experience at American Airlines, and now working with billion dollar clients. What do you feel like is maybe a couple, I'd rather not just one? But a couple of some of the best lessons that use learn on your journey that you feel like other people benefit from number one anything that, you know, documented is people believe in the congress is someone believes that they know how to do something I want to see a checklist on how they execute it because I know I wanna know that it can be repeated. So if I'm building a business, you can take any. Break down into the DNA of the checkless on how they in McDonald's, French fries what no matter what McDonald's go to, you know, it's delicious. Asia. I'll, I'll ask, you know month and I went to McDonald's in different countries. Right. Think about your business processes broken into that, because that is how you ensure consistency with the brand, and more importantly, it's how you attract and train for top people. So everything that we do everything that I do. I've made sure I've documented. And when I read all these autobiographies, I love auto back, not by these automatic these, I'm thinking, what are the chocolates that these people did, so Ray Kroc when he built McDonald? Sam Walton was what were the checklist that they went through? And how can I use those checklists in my business? I don't care about the stories. I want to pull out those particular checklist. Number one, number two, is I've got actively mentor at the same time. So we as entrepreneurs, we're so busy trying to get stuff done, and meetings. And whatever that we forget that we have to invest in people. But if we've got these checklists in place, we can at the same time be training and mentoring other people because you Mark lack as much energy in whatever is you have you can only do so much one person. I can only do so much on prison flip the client base that we have. There's no way the Dennis you even with five minutes, you could do all the things I have. In fact, I don't even do anything you don't have even done at the last few years. Because we built in check what are the things that you suffer in all the time, where you have to repeat, the same stuff over and over again, to clients investors to cut, you know, whoever it is take those things that automated by automation is going to be the savior of entrepreneurs. Because then wasting time doing the same thing over and over again. They complain how busy there and that's what I love is used sort of reverse engineered how to become successful by learning about other people's processes and so excited diamond with your business. We can share kind of how you think..
Internet pioneer: Education, smart regulation needed for digital future
"This is Matt wells, the US news. Well, senior Google executive and internet pioneer Vint CERF has called for the introduction of smart regulation, guardrails, and improved Gillette, Eucation, protect professionals and the general public as the UN published. A landmark report on Monday towards creating a safer more inclusive digital future for a soul. Mr. surf is recognized as one of the internet's founding fathers, and in his role as chief internet evangelist at the web giant he continues to play a high profile role as a thought leader in the tech sector. He's also a member of the UN, High Level Panel on digital cooperation, and was present at the launch of the panels. I report the age of digital interdependence. Exclusive interview with you a news. He spoke to Connor Lennon shortly after the launch even headquarters in New York. In spite of the fact that we see headlines repeatedly where people's privacies in violated because someone broke into an accounting got ahold of all kinds of information about them in spite of all those headlines. I can't but believe that the internet and the World Wide Web, which sits on top of it has induced and enormous sharing of information. Some people imagine that the internet than the worldwide web have introduced a new demand for critical thinking, in fact information overload has been with us for quite a long time. Let me take you back to pre internet days. Let's say is the nineteen fifties, you probably did not read every magazine that was published watcher removing Wasser Retela vision show. So we were already filtering the information that we chose to get access to. I can remember whenever I had questions I had to either turn to my personal library or go to the library, downtown to get answers today. I find myself turning to Google not surprisingly in doing the search hoping to get some information. However, I've also very. Aware of the fact that the information I get back comes from abroad range of sources, and no matter how hard Google might try to organize the response with what it hopes is the best value information. I still find myself, always asking questions like where did this come from SIMEONI corroborating evidence all the things you normally do to think critically about information that you're being offered. And so I hope everybody gets trained to do that. As a matter, of course, bought a you most afraid of the L. Well, first of all, the general brittleness of the online environment really, really worries me it's all made out of software, and as former programmer, I know how easy it is right software. That has bugs in it and the problem with those bugs is mistakes is if they are discovered they can sometimes be exploited. And so we find it all kinds of hacking going onto taking. Vantage of bugs that had become visible. There's also the possibility the software is simply won't work, right? And here the big worry is this so-called internet of things. These are devices that have software in them that makes the device function, animates, the device in also allows advice to communicate on the internet. So think of household appliances. But I used to think it was funny, Joe to say the thing I worry about is one hundred thousand refrigerators attacking Bank of America. Well, I don't say that. That's not a joke anymore because in fact, five hundred thousand webcams did attack on incorporation. Of course, they didn't make this up the webcams didn't decide one day to self organize someone a bought net herder found that the webcams didn't have any access control on them or alternatively. They had well-known user names and passwords and organized a net. And then used it to do agent service attack against the comes. Any on the net which had consequences because that company going Inc was doing demanding resolution for a lot of other companies, which meant they disappeared off the net in consequence of the denial of service attack against encore. But you don't seem to have any fears about technology, your fears more about the capabilities of the people using it, and the people who are writing software so to what extent is education. A part of the report that you've written. Oh, education turns out to show up as the solution to everything I mean will report doesn't come down to this one point saying, everybody should be educated. But there's no doubt that solving a lot of the problems that these technologies of introduced a dozen Paul education. Whether it's education, the technological people educating ordinary users to hazards that they should be aware of all you up to mystic about the future. I am very optimistic about the future. I always have been, I wouldn't gotten into this business forty five years ago. If I did. And feel optimistic. I watched this system penetrate from my point of view, slowly, we're only fifty percent in from my point of view is forty five years in counting on the other hand for most of the world, it's more like nineteen Ninety-three in county, because that's when the web show, I have seen plenty of opportunity for infrastructure to be used and abused them. What we're seeing here is exactly what Shakespeare teaches us, which is why we still we'd the place for hundred years later. People have motivations that are quite diverse. Some of them do not have your best interests at heart that, unfortunately, is the human weakness in. So once the general public got access to the internet in the World Wide Web. We were confronted with exactly that set of negative incentives that people have, and we can't, we can't undo that simply with technology. We literally have to decide. Either to prevent abuse using technical means or to tell people, some of these behaviors are unacceptable in our society. And if we catch you there will be consequences post talk enforcement, and there's a third thing we can do we can tell people don't do that. It's wrong doesn't solve all problems. But I would say we have all three of those mechanisms technical means post talk enforcement and moral suasion to try to shape the way in which people behave the sex general today at the launch during the web chat. With Jack Ma Melinda gates, he mentioned power, and, and with great power Co's, a great potential for abuse of power, and we now are starting to see. I think that the incident, the worldwide web is essentially a public utility started oil was broken up at the beginning of the twentieth century, because it was felt that you couldn't have one company, which had such a central strangle. Hold on, on oil. We know have sensually digits, loyal. We all need to use the World Wide Web will fifty percent so fo-, but we all sang in the report that everyone should be online. So when do you think regulators will have the requisite knowledge and education to be able to? In a smart way. Regulate the internet and the very small number of large companies that are county dominating it. Well, that's fairly loaded question. First of all is still consider the internet space to be very, very open to competition. I oh why you need to remember that companies that appeared to have been at their peak. If sometimes gone, I l for end yahu, and so on. And so I will be very careful about breaking things up just because somebody's appears to be on top at the moment. The internet's the platform itself is extraordinarily open at Google at least speaking for myself. I always imagine that there might be two guys just like Larry and Sergei in some, dorm room somewhere who've just figured out, how to do things a lot better than we do. And so we're roaming, like crazy to try to keep ahead logically speaking. You ask though about thoughtful guard Wales, which I thought was really useful term that shows up in the report shown up in some of the dialogue, the idea that we have this powerful technology. But that we since we know it can be abused. The question is what kinds of guard rails, should we put in place? And I to be quite honest with you. Some of the abuses come from individuals, some of the abuses, come from institutions, whether it's, you know, private sector corporations, or, or other public sector institutions, I think you can make a number of examples of this question of power in abusive power. What's interesting and what might not have come to your fought when you mentioned tower think about the power that the internet has given an individual. Think about abuse of that power for a moment. Think of what some people have chosen to do with the network, whether it's to send out spam or descendant fishing emails, telling you that it's a friend of yours who's trapped in the London and their passports been stolen, please send money. There are. It's amazing. What kind of capability the internet has given to individuals let alone by situations. I'm sorry to behave badly out. Exactly. So, so we, we have power tools that we've created now you have to ask ourselves, what rules should we apply to the power tools for all those who wield them, whether it's an individual or an institution of corporation, but that's my point. He will be so amongst a bug A paper full, congress is clear from some of the questions he was being out that they was perhaps a low level of understanding of what of what his product even was. And how could you then expect people, I got to Bill to effectively? Legislate. That's very, very reasonable question to ask the prep several answers to that one of them courses to hope that the elected officials will turn to experts try to get educated. The second suggestion is may be people who were familiar with his technology should consider becoming elected officials in order to make policy. There has been an effort to try to get more scientists to agree to undertake such a role. The third one might be generational have his say that his people become more and more familiar in use this technology and do choose to go into political life, that over a period of time the people who don't have that background. We'll have gone onto, you know, they're great reward and we will have elected a more knowledgeable collection of legislators. How long do you think this will take when we have a global environment in which there is sufficient collaboration to be able to make affected regulation because this is this is transnational now this is not limited to wonder a sectional one country. Well, that much is true. But I would also argue that there are from the business point of view. There are rules that every business is asked to fouling in every country in which he does business. The fact that you're multinational as a corporation, does not exonerate, you or what's the right word yet, in it doesn't give you the freedom to break the law in each country, which you. It. It'd be crazy business model. The wagon is hi my business model is to break your laws. We have an example with a company that kind of did that. I'm not sure I should mention the name of the company, but it had something to do with transportation and the gig economy, as and so we can guess. Yeah, you can guess who that might have been and that didn't work out, too. Well, so I think it's very important, not to discount the importance of the legal frameworks in which each company has to operate as it as it functions in each country in Google, for example, if I've understood correctly remember, just an engineer, but I expect that we have incorporated entities in each country, and in the course of incorporating that entity is signed up to follow all the laws of that country. So I don't think that, that nations are nearly as impotent is, as your question might imply the mere fact of, of. Multinational operation of a corporation, does not diminish a country's ability to establish ground rules.

I would say they, they, they generally, they do make a comment here that consumers still spend their money in similar ways over generations says changes in how I wish I had all the money, I spent on cassette, tapes car all alcohol, and everything else that I've spent money on between the ages of eighteen and thirty five young people are less likely to make smart financial decisions. Right. And so. Not millennials. It's those darn kids, you know whatever it is. And they have different priorities. I think is another thing that's worth pointing maybe changing over the over the years is their priorities on spending. But what do you mean? Well, there's an article from Charles Schwab on social media. So again, the, the light study said that generally speaking, there have not been dramatic changes in how consumers spend their money. However, according to finance writer over at yahu finance simply red at other study came to an entirely different conclusions. Social media is spoiling millennial jen's e finances, social media encourages bad financial habits among the lineal 's engines ears. So, so yes, you're pointing out young people have always had bad financial habits. They're saying that might be even worse now because of social media. I remember my dad having a conversation with me when I was probably sixteen fifteen fourteen something like that. And saying, basically. My job and I could have done has he said, and I can't remember what the numbers are have them here in front of you, folks. Please I wasn't prepared for this. But something like put away a hundred dollars every week until your twenty five years old. But advice, and then, you'll be a millionaire when you retire, and I'm like, oh, you kidding me carry anything about this advice. I did nothing like that made. No attempts to do that. I saved up to get a motor scooter. I saved up to get a car and then you know, I would put money away to do things like pay my insurance and stuff. But that was that was as far as we're safer. Yeah..
US technology sector hit by trade dispute
"Home. Stocks have outpour performed tech stocks so far this year. But that the home builder's section is giving the text sector a run for its money. Yahu finance reporter, Scott GAM. Here he is. Yeah. Isn't that incredible homebuilder stocks up about twenty one? Twenty two percent so far this year. The technology sector is up about nineteen percent so far this year and over the past month, given the latest escalation of trade tensions tech stocks are down over five percent homebuilder stocks are down about three percent. So clearly the trade tensions are affecting the tech sector more than the home builder's sector. It's always good to hear the homebuilding sector, doing well, because that means plumbers electricians, roofers framers. You know, everybody that builds home as probably doing good to Home Depot.

"We all know that from New York City. What is so odious here is this group of people not of them are known for being supporters of Israel or being supportive of the Jewish people. I've never heard of them as being somehow specially supportive of the Jewish people. So this coming out at the same time. The New York Times comes out with a international edition with these anti-semitic cartoons to them now. Unbelievable. And we've got this spectacular cartoon spectacularly discussing cartoon that ran in in the so-called paper records international edition of Trump as a blind man with yarmulke on being let let along by a seeing eye dog, which is being yahu a dog collar may made up of a star of David. I mean, this would have sit in Germany back in thirty five thirty six thirty seven unbelievably anti semitic and disgusting and yet Trump's supposedly anti Semite. I it makes no sense and Trump in particular picked up the phone to the rabbi right away. He actually sued him. This is different rabbi. So let's pivot if we can do twenty twenty the United States is either very concerned or is trying to boost up Joe, Biden one way or another. He's not leading one speech and went into go by Maggie Haberman of the New York Times thinks she knows the reason cut twenty six. The President Donald Trump believes that he can brand anyone. He's watching the coverage. He's getting frustrated. He thinks that what this race really needs. Right now is him shaping it what he's doing is elevating show by then basically turning this into a one on one race between himself and Joe Biden, eighteen months ahead of time. This is the kind of thing you would see a presidential candidate for reelection do in the summer of the election year. Typically, this is now taking place right now, it might not end up mattering. But this is not the way veteran political operatives handle this so touch them to nothing typical. What do you think of this strategy think she's onto something? What do you think it is different? I guess usually what people will do let the other party chair themselves to pieces, and then once they have a nominee attack that nominee. I guess he's trying to knock him down early and make this contrast. I don't that's gonna help them with primary voters who will rally around him perhaps or they may see him as additionally suppose flawed somehow rally around Bernie Sanders, one of the others. But the the idea that oh. This is the way it's typically done very little that Trump does is the way things are typically done as well know when you see Joe Biden, go out with that message of the Konami is not helping everybody cut. I want you to hear this. Cut fifteen. What would you say to the Trump voter Trump supporter who looks at the economy and sees very strong numbers here in Pennsylvania where the unemployment is at a record low of three point nine percent, what I'd say is getting benefits from the tax cut and your wages really gone up towards deserved your employers. Treat you with any more respected dignity. They did before the story as folks as the folks in the state and other states pretty well. And the fact that the matter is that they're not getting their fair share American people the people built this country or ordinary America's coordinator things from they come from. And this president does not show great tour continues to divide the country. But in for example, ask them how hard it is kid to college six ten jobs right now require something in high school to ask them how before. Why do we give tax break to a Wall Street, but we don't give a tax break for texture for daycare for child cat to take. Why don't we do that? So let's take apart there. There is a lot. But look eat as he says asked the typical Pennsylvania know, what he thinks typical Pennsylvanians are enjoying being in a country with a three point two percent GDP growth rate, which is fantastic. Three point eight percent unemployment there. The there's so many jobs seeking employees in Pennsylvania that employers now are going to prisons and seeing people are leaving prison to come work for them.

I Am Not A Robot: The Story of CAPTCHA
"Year two thousand everybody was signing up for Yahoo Email addresses. This was back before g mail and Yahoo mail was great. It was free. You could check your Email anywhere. But there was this one problem and a computer science grad student at Carnegie Mellon University became fixated on this problem. His name is Louis von on the problem was that there were people who in order to send spam from Yahoo accounts. They would obtain millions of Email accounts, literally, millions not not hundreds or thousands. But millions of fake Email accounts. Literally millions of fakey mill council this spammers who were signing up for millions of spam. Accounts weren't going to the yahu male page and just signing up for these accounts. One at a time. It wasn't like they were like the real Jacob Goldstein at Yahoo dot com. Jacob Goldstein ninety nine at Yahoo dot com. Jacob the barefoot dancer at Yahoo dot com. No spammers were writing simple, computer programs little bots that just kept filling out the Yahoo Email sign up form again and again and again day. Day and night and that would generate an army of Email accounts that could be used to sell fake Viagra or steal your Bank account information. Whatever Dow didn't know what to do about this. But Louis finan had an idea. So the idea was can we make test that distinguish between humans and computers, but also a test that is graded by the computer, if you've basically ever signed up for anything on the internet. You probably know the idea that Luis von Ahn came up with a picture of distorted letters and numbers, and then a little field below that picture where you type in the characters that you see, and we actually showed it to the the guy who was the chief scientists at Yahoo. Are he loved it? And within a few weeks. It was actually, you know in the registration flow of Email accounts at Yahoo. It was it was being used there. And we were super happy that they were just using it Lewis gave his little tested name was a long ridiculous name that made a short genius acronym. The long name was completely automated public turing test to tell computers and humans. Apart a train test is a famous old idea in computer science. It's a test where you try to tell if you're chatting with a computer or with a human being if a computer can consistently make you think it's a human being that is artificial intelligence, and this sort of turing test that Louis came up with it became huge. You may even know the acronym for this test capture capture capture has very compelling have show is a good name. Yeah. Because it's like capture them or Gotcha. Or something like that. Yeah. It was it was a good name, you know capture. Maybe you do not like capture and yet the twenty year history of capture is this window into a lot into artificial intelligence into digitizing millions of books also into a little cyber. Hello and welcome to planet money. I'm Jacob Goldstein. And I'm no L king. And I am not a robot. I'm not not not a robot. But if you were that's exactly what. Today on the show, a global decades-long work an internet that people actually use versus a spammy wasteland. It is computer versus computer.

I should say that Luis von Ahn was one of several people working on capture of like tests around the same time. So he's not the only person who came up with the idea that people develop their own captures. But Lewis and his colleagues are the ones who came up with the name and their version was the one that really took off when you bought tickets online when you signed up for your mice basic count pretty soon people were taking Louise's little test two hundred million times a day. It was protecting the world from scalpers and spammers and bots and the world, of course, responded with gratitude every time that I talked to somebody about about capture, you know, the first thing they would tell me is how annoying they are. So I started feeling fair fair. I started feeling partly responsible for these, you know, two hundred million times a day. And each time you type one of these you wasted about ten seconds of your time. So, you know, I started just thinking is there any way in which we can make good use of this these ten seconds. This was in the mid two thousand and at this moment, there is this push. Bush going on to digitize old books and all documents. And at the time it was easy enough to scan old pages old pieces of paper and put them online. But computers were still bad at turning those scanned pages into useful online documents if not searchable you cannot change the font size. You cannot. I mean, it's just a bunch of kind of somewhat crappy pictures. Yeah. So it occurred to me that you could take all of the words that the computer could not recognize and we get people to read them for us while they were typing captures on the internet up to this point Lewis has been giving capture away for free. But now he thinks people might pay to have their print archives digitized one capture at a time, and he is sitting on over half a million hours of free human Labor Day. So he starts a company called recapture, and he goes out looking for customers. And what happened was I was actually giving a talk somewhere. And I was fortunate that the at the time the guy who was the chief information officer for the New York Times was sitting in the audience. Okay. And he said, oh, you know, what we have this huge one hundred and thirty year old archive of old additions of the New York Times. So maybe we can maybe you can help us the New York Times ended up being recaptured first client now when you solve the caption next to a few random letters and numbers there. Was also a picture of a word from an old issue of the times the computers couldn't read when you typed in that word, you weren't just protecting the internet from spam? You're also helping to turn a hundred years of old newspapers into a searchable digital archive, and I have to say, I just love this sort of while you're doing one thing. You're also doing something else like deficiency of this. Like, it just it delights me, you know, it's like the old dream of writing your exercise bike to power the lights in your house or something which by the way Lewis told me when he was like eleven he had that dream, and then he like looked into it and realize oh, actually like a person, right? An exercise bike as a terrible way to generate power. As Lewis was getting recaptured going Google came out and announced they were starting to digitize every book like every single book in the world or something they sold. Lewis was doing for the times and in two thousand and nine Google bought recap show and started using it to help digitize books and then a few. Later. Google started using captured tests that showed pictures of addresses on the sides of buildings when we saw those captures we were making Google maps work better doing a little more work for Google, unpaid. So that is the end of Louise's capture story, but a little digression. He started a language company where people did online translation while they were learning the length which same like doing one thing actually doing other thing idea. This company became super popular it's called dual lingo, in fact, it got so popular that they got rid of the translation part. Now, it's just this app that millions of people use to learn languages. Okay. End of Louis end of digression. So now, it is the 'oughts and for a while capture is working the spammers are held at bay. And then someone figures out a work around. Shady businesses started showing up online and offering to break capture for anybody willing to pay. Chris Canaan is a computer scientist who started looking into these businesses around two thousand eight and it's one of. Those things like until you actually think oh, actually let's go seek this up. See how hard it is to find. You might think. Oh, this is some shady cybercriminals underground thing. But Nope, you can just Google for it, you could find a dozen of these services. Very competitively priced with all that stuff. Chris wanted to know like what's going on here? Like is it for real do these services work? So he and his colleagues decided to act like spammers. I mean, they didn't do the spam part. But they did more or less everything else. They built a bought. And this bought went around the web bumping into captures. And automatically every time the bought hit a capture test. It would send it off to one of these services that offers to solve captures for money, and what do those services do exactly they pay human beings to sit in front of computers all day long and solve one capture after another. So some person sitting in front of a computer gets a capture from Chris's bought solves the test in a couple of seconds sends it back to Chris's Bhatt, which enters the solution into a web page and boo. Yes, that is the plain vanilla version just to see like. Does this work? How long does it take? But Chris and his colleagues also had some other questions they wanted to answer. So they did something else they made up their own captured tests to send out to the solvers. Some of those tests are said what time is it and the answer to those tests told them what time zone the people salting the test lived in. They'll wanted to know what languages the solver spoke. So they made captures with weird instructions in lots of different languages Chinese Spanish Italian Tagalog Portuguese Russian, Tamil Dutch, Hindi German Malay Vietnamese Korean Greek Arabic Bengali Canada Klingon in Farsi. I'm sorry. What was the one before? I see Klingon Klingon the made up language from Star Trek maiden. Of course, not. But they did it because they wanted to just like sort of push these services like how far will these capture solvers go. There's no way they're going to be able to answer this. But the answers we saw showed us. I think we got something like a one percent accuracy rate. But it. Was on something that was so incredibly long of a question that it couldn't have been right by chance. So presumably one of these capture solvers recognized that this was Klingon either new Klingon just because at the no or looked it up online. When was actually able to successfully solve this capture. That was written in Klingon you found the greatest capture solver on earth. Yes. Based on this part of the study, not the Klingon part put the languages and the time zones. They figure out that a lot of people seem to be doing this work in Russia, China and India, and they realize this is a huge industry. People have started calling it capture farming, and it is basically human beings opening the capture gates for an army of bots and capture farms work, usually they were right, usually they were very fast. So that so the services were legit. I mean, they were potentially illegal. But they did the thing that they said they were doing correct. Yeah. One of the most interesting things about cybercrime as a marketplace. Is that it works like any other like business to business type marketplace, your reputation is really important there. You're not gonna keep your capture solving business in business, unless you're actually solving those captures and how much did it cost one US dollar per thousand captures solved so incredibly incredibly inexpensive. But this is a task that takes a typical human, you know, about fifteen twenty seconds. Yes. But God, I mean, you really. Feel for the people doing the work. Yes. So if you are spam or these workers will solve captures for you around the clock for a tenth of a penny per thousand that price is obviously like mind breaking low, but it is still not zero. And it is still enough to weed out a lot of people it weeds out people who are just trolls making spam. Accounts for fun and people who are just posting garbage comments on million garbage websites hoping to sell a few extra dollars worth of garbage products. So even with the capture farms catches still are working to block a lot of people. But what would happen if you could teach a computer to solve the captures then you wouldn't need the farms and the farmers anymore. The price would go to zero and the spammers could go wild.

I love the loyalist story last year. But I will say that I expect the games to be really good. You know, and a lot of times you get to this level and Cinderella gets stomped right out of there. I don't think we're going to have that. I think we're gonna have a bunch of very competitive games. I think the spreads on all of them are single digits. And I think we're gonna have good basketball Thursday and Friday looking at you, call them today in grew on this too. It's interesting because these are all brand name programs. They all have small numbers next to their name. They're very good. But everybody's hauling some baggage into distinct. I mean, I mean, whether it happened this year, whether it happened just in recent years, all of these brand names come with a little bit of an attic, though, do not they do certainly. Yeah. There's been some, you know, a lot of controversy the federal investigation caused fastballs drag four of the Sweet Sixteen teams into that. You've got John Calipari with his too. Vacated final fours you have Kelvin Sampson who did a five year show. 'cause they've you know, there's been a lot of stuff out there for sure there's there's a few programs that are not implicated.

We actually partnered closely with with Google, and then later yahu and other ISP's inbox providers to create something we call the F B L the feedback loop. And we literally said we all in this ecosystem have a aligned incentive to want to keep the bad actors out. Nobody wants the spear phishing Email, you know, grandma's being taken vantage of, you know, spam, flooding our inbox. You can't actually get to the the right one. So. We have a lot of data about who's who's looks like about actor. You all have a lot of data on who looks like a bad, actor, let's create a feedback Lim both ways. And so we started that.

What's important in that growth face because that's a serious. You know, it's one thing to get a copy of ten twenty million a whole 'nother thing to get to nine figures. Yeah. Scaling scaling is hard. That growth stages is an interesting time. And I I would say we did think about it over. Okay, for the next three to five years where do we want to be and then back walk yourself backwards from there, and I believed then and thankfully, we proved true. I was like I believe this has the ability to be a Bill to last company one proxy for that is can we be a public company withstand the scrutiny of the public eye be so disciplined in our operations that we can execute as a public entity if we can do that. And we have this grand vision that that that we have and you know, that can fuel. For decades, not just years then than we can keep going. And so we looked at that. And then backed in and said, okay. Well, if that's true, boy, we got a lot of work to do here. And one of the challenges you really like why was I brought in, you know, make us eat your change of everything's going perfectly. The primary reason was our growth rate was decelerating your year, which happens, you know, kind of law large, very large numbers. Right. Like, it's easier to double when you're tiny, and that kind of thing, but but we were decelerating to to a growth rate that was in the forties to thirties that might have been going to the twenties. And we said we've we can't have that we got to arrest the deceleration, and then reaccelerate, and that's one of the things I'm probably most proud of that we were able to accomplish in the couple of years after I joined was we we were able to flatten the curve, we call it the singer smile because the growth rate went was going down flattened it. And then we re accelerated in a looks like a small mistake that was it spending money on marketing was it the spanning the product offering was at. Reconstituting the team while you're good. You should be a CEO who's not debate. You just hit. You just hit the probably the three biggest levers that we pulled. In fact, we more than tripled our marketing spend in that year. It worked best. Most of it was I would say the principal channel was still was SEM. As a reason Google is big as they are got. So that was those big part of it. We added a new product line. So you mentioned earlier, you know, we've been known for the transaction. We met with the developers. We added a second product line for the marketer..

"Don't you? You ask me you were like, so what's the problem? And I'm really sitting there like there's no problem. I just don't want it. I mean. You know? Like, really masculine men. Little. On the toxic on his. But I also know as much as that's my quote, unquote, preference is also what I grew up around for. That's what I'm saying. How much of your preferences conditioning, and how much of it is an actual chemistry because that's all I wanted. It's all I've ever gone after you know, and and was kinda like comfortable with that being my type, and then I remember I dated someone who as so much chemistry with he everyone ask them you. He was gay. It was so fascinating in yahu and talking about. Because they were like, that's so unusual for you. 'cause he Arum had like bracelets and he had like rain. Braces rings, he had like, but true. And he's just. Bangles because if the noise and I see. Not so much. Associated philly. No bit just regular, and even when he'd sit the way he'd crosses legs. And he'll. How would it be cautiously old men like they when they just I mean, really there's no way across your legs gay like, it's. That's what's so silly. Never seen those same Matt it. Yes. It is come on, Man's. man. Head crosses. And that's killing people get you a hard time about his braces. That's better than them silver braces. You got. I'm talking about love after locker. So we let them talk about your boyfriend. He had an energy that was really. Let's just be transparent. It would be considered soft. He was a man I was soft. You know, what I mean that that somebody would say that about that energy know what I'm saying? So it was different for me. And I'll end the cool part about it was that he was so in touch with his feminine side that it allowed him to connect with me way better on an emotional level. Because he wasn't on the super toxic performance. You know, like what a man supposed to be like he played into being a man he played into being more feminine when we needed to talk about certain things like he was really fluid and kinda new went to play into whichever side of the spectrum was needed in that situation. I thought that that was mind blowing for me, California guys to know. He did it. And. And after dating him onto see it open, my mind and made me realize like you gotta stout picking certain people because of how they present as tough because they end up being literally tough to break through like emotionally as tough as the exteriors interiors just the same in our kinda was fascinated by the fact that he was you'd as soft. But it was that softness that allowed us to connect on a level at never connected before with a man. But then there was also that thing too people always ask me was gay. And I was like this is so interesting in you know, and I didn't care. I didn't care if people felt that way meet him laughed about it all the time. He was like, I've always had that stigma where people thought I was gay because they thought that the way that I present only a gay man could present like there's no way that a straight, man. Could be that in touch with his feelings. You know what I mean? So he always found that really interesting the coolest part about his he didn't care. He never played into it. He didn't get emotional. You know, he was like I'm not gay like what is it happen? He was kinda like listen Khan. Give a fuck. Okay. What they talking while baby..

"I don't think it's a lazy comparison. I think it's just accurate. Just because it's the simple one doesn't make inaccurate. Yes. He does he needs that sick hair? Actually, let me see. I'm looking at this right now is he still no he went. He went in the eighth round there. So yeah, fallen asleep. Hurt me there. I could've Davies David Chapman. Their auto drafted her and Peres in someone else in the fourth round. Right. No, no. This one was like the thirtieth round. But like I woke up, and I was like, no, it's like at least he was in my queue. It was somebody. I like. Just using my warriors and Mike Hughes to but it was like one of those things where it was like I had like kind of restocked my you in a while. Yeah. These guys that I just kind of been randomly throwing in there. So yeah, Brad feel that it was in like, oh, this is my boy, I could have gotten them like but rounds later he's really going high for the rest of the year on on Bradley Zimmer. Let's talk about the the teammate the newest teammate of match Chapman, jerks and pro far and as we're talking about position flexibility. There's nobody better to bring up seemingly in terms of like the mid runs. There's there's some superstar like bias who we talked about who have that flexibility as well. But in terms of kind of that that mid rounder who gets boosted because of it. I don't think you really are boosting bias specifically because of that, but profile you're like, I like the skills profile. But I also like that he plays three positions off the top. And he might even have the fourth with some other. Other. Outlet says you have second base do anything at second base last year. I'm looking right now. Ten games. So yahoo. Yahoo yahu? He's got it. Yeah. Considered in short though. I mean, that'd be four positions. And it's three in the NFC. You gotta love that. Now he finally had the season that we've been waiting for just a positive season. I think we will waiting for something even bigger than that. Because he's been around forever but injuries have really derailed the career of pro far. But he's only twenty is still just twenty six. Yes. Be age twenty six season twenty ten. It was homers and steals two thousand ten to fifty four average seventy seven rabies eighty two runs. That's a heck of a season. It's just like a stat stuffer. That's not particularly special in any one category. But does something everywhere and the positions jerks and pro far in Oakland. One of your thoughts. I think he's a really interesting guy, especially because he has not multi-positional eligibility. You know, I love to be able to slaughter them in in a in a bunch of different spots. Especially if you're in leagues with smaller benches is always nice. Yes. That being said like, I don't think he is got this huge upside. I think that I think the breakout last year is probably his peak, especially Oakland. Okay. I just don't see like a huge power output or huge stolen base output coming from him in Oakland. So I like him. And I think he is a nice guy who's going to contribute some in pretty much every category. Maybe not so much in average. I think the average probably should tick up a little bit. I think you've got a bit on lucky on balls in play last year. But I'm I'm looking at him as a guy who could probably be fifteen ten fifteen fifteen. Maybe with a two seventy average that plays three different position. And I mean who can't use that on their team? Exactly, I think it will continue to kind of be that stat stuff for type of guy who you bounce around everywhere. I do think a good portion of jerks and profiles value does come from that flexibility. And that's okay. But you just have to understand that. And it gives you incremental ability like I said earlier to get the top free agent of the week because you can now move him around in. Now, you it's available to you. It isn't available to somebody else because they're locked in at second short and middle or something to that effect that is valuable less likely to take him in weekly leagues as opposed to daily format where where you can really realize flexibility of him with the amount of days off there's going to be this year..

"April's. Welcome back to another episode of this week in photo, your host Frederik van Johnson on tonight's show. We're going to be talking we kind of going back to the future or back to the past and back to the future again. Because if you're like me or like most of us when you started depending on your age, but when you start it in photography and Certes sharing images online, you probably used a service called flicker from yahu. And if you predate that flicker was an independent service before it joined yahu, and now it is now part of smug mugs. So we're gonna talk about a little bit too much time talking about that transition and all this sort of roller coaster ride that flicker has gone through to end up where it is now. But I want to talk more about the state of flicker today, and should we photographers should we? Or shouldn't we be giving it another look with all the other options out there and win flicker started? There weren't many viable options. Now there are lots of options. So we're gonna talk about why it's probably time to give flicker another look and here to do that with me our to folks that use flicker one of them actually is on the team over its mug mug, the folks stat that acquired flicker first of all Hilmar Smith you are here. You've been on the show before why don't you introduce yourself? Give us a little background of Hilmar who you are in. You know, why you love flicker so much. Photographer. Footage.

I love the the new sense of community that we are excited to get back in there. And I'm looking forward used to build a bigger community. And and you know, getting back to the way west of the beginning or even better. Yeah. I agree. I think it's time to get it back to better than it was before because times are different. Right. So so star, you're you're you're over at smug mug is evidence by the gear that you're wearing right there. You are you're a smug mugger. But you're you're also you do stuff with smug MC films, and and a number of other things give us sort of your elevator pitch who is Alice stare. And you know what? Why should we be listening to you today? Yeah. Well, yeah. Alastair jolie. Smell loving flicker. I'm based in Scotland. But tonight, I'll use my based international accent.

I was European manager for smug monk and established or Brandon or operation week here in Europe for the last few years be working always global marketing manager on many global marketing initiatives, improve Jake's looking after community relations on for the last ten months that rule. His nose includes. In the end now. And now, we're here, which is which is awesome. Because like I said at the beginning, there's like my journey and flicker my journey with photography or digital photography sort of began with flicker, and it was the place where you put your photos, and this is one of the things I want to talk about is the evolution of deserve the ethos behind the images that you put online when when you're sharing because back in the day. It was. You know, I'm going to shoot a bunch of stuff. And then I'm going to upload it all and crowd source, the culling, you know, I'm just gonna put it on flicker because I can imminent let everyone else told me what the great images are. And then maybe I'll take those and put them in a portfolio somewhere that has changed a little bit with a bunch of other things, and we're going to dive into that before we do that. I wanna thank our sponsor for this episode.

"Him. Congress isn't essential. I don't think they've done much of anything for I don't know like six or eight years now. So this has been going on now for three weeks. It was Friday was day. Number twenty one is I understand it. So today is now the longest running so called government shutdown in American history. It has bested during the Clinton administration. There was one that lasted for twenty one days. I remember that hasn't really been anything that was close to that sense. And now twenty two days and counting. So Trump does have the award for longest government semi shutdown. And yes, if Darryl were here he would point out this may actually end up costing more money in the long run. I mean, they're already being sued apparently by some of these workers unions the government workers unions. If you wanna call them workers, the government employees. Sue, the the congress and the set out in the constitution. What the process is for disbursing funds. Right. That process you're going to go into a US court and sue them for following the process, that's laid out in the constitution. You don't understand how you do that. They they promised to pay and they didn't. So there's a contract violation. Even if it's not in the contract. I don't know if it's written down or not. But when you start working for somebody you presume, you're going to get paid. If you worked and did not get paid. Yeah. There's a suit now. The thing is is they're going to get paid. In all likelihood before these suits ever. See a judge. They claim judges essential. I just pulled the story up here from yahu finance aggrieved federal workers are suing the US government over the shutdown arguing that working without pay is violation of the constitution. Oh, it's because they're being forced to work without pay. Which by the way, I agree with being forced. They can go home. They can quit. They can quit. Outpa- or quit. Yeah. I've got a problem with the work without pay or quit thing. I think it should be like, look, we can't pay you. So therefore, you don't have to come into work until we can pay you calling out. So that's what I heard about this TSA worker. Call outs. Yeah. Starting last week throughout the week. One hundred and seventy workers at JFK alone. Oh, man, we're we're calling out the TSA was was planet off like it's a minimal minimal impact to security. This is no big deal, which is just proof that you didn't really need those people in the first place. It's a definitely a minimal impact to security, but it will take you a lot longer to get through..
