A Look At Psalm 6 - A Plea For Mercy
"We're going to look at psalm six today i'm gonna read it for you. We're going to follow the alive. Method the same way that we do each and every week so this first question is what does it say. Remember with psalms. Were looking for repetition. We're looking for imagery. We're looking for parallelism. So eliza is when one line builds on the next and that line might be two things that contrast each other it might be a line that echoes the next or it might be a thought that completes thought before it came so i'm going to read through psalm six. I want to invite you to listen closely to take some notes in what you're hearing from the psalm. Lord do not rebuke me in your anger or disciplined me in your wrath be merciful to me lord for i am faint lord. Heal me for my bones are in agony. My soul is in anguish. How long oh lord. How long turn. Oh lord and deliver me save me because of your unfailing love no one remembers you and he is dead who praises you from the grave. He i am worn out from groaning all night long. I flood my bed with weeping and drench make with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow. They fail because of all my foes away from me all who do evil for the lord has heard by weeping. The lord has heard my cry for mercy. The lord accepts my prayer. All my enemies will be ashamed and dismayed. They will turn back in sudden disgrace. So when we hear this psalm we hear the depths of the human experience and for anyone who has ever experienced a deep grief whether it's because you've lost some money someone that you love or you've lost something that has been precious to you. You've gone through a season of life. Where loss has been a part of that experience. Then you probably can relate to this line right in the middle of the saw. I'm worn out from groaning all night long. I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow this deep sense of finding that bottom of the human experience just being completely emptied out because of a deep grief because of a longing that we lost something so precious to us or something has failed so miserably or we have suffered so deeply because of enemies whether that enemy something that may attack us on the inside like cancer or an enemy is some some way that someone has turned against us or is opposing us or an enemy is even this moment that we here at the beginning of the song where the psalmist david is actually responding because of being punished for his sin that he actually is experiencing punishment for his sin. No matter whether it's something we brought upon ourselves or something that has come to us. I think what were invited into right now. Is recognizing that part of our experience in humanity is grief and suffering and difficulty. And this if this was an important if this wasn't a part of the full remember we said last week the full orb experience of godliness. If this wasn't a part of it it wouldn't be in here if we could enter into a christianity that didn't involve suffering or pain. This wouldn't be in here. And so there's a part of what we're experiencing together. That's just allowing this to be true. It says in. John sixteen thirty three in this world. You will have trouble but take heart. I have overcome the world. We don't get to not have trouble just because we are in. Christ we still exist in humanity and you know what jesus simlisafe's perfect all man. God had trouble in the earth and we are going to have trouble. We are going to have suffering. And i believe that this kind of psalm and the other psalms like it psalm. Fifty one is a som- like this one. There are several psalms that are in this category You may see it in psalm. Eight psalm twelve. Psalm forty six. There's all of these psalms that represent this Appeal some six is a som- like psalm. Fifty one you also find this kind of psalm psalm. Thirty two some thirty eight psalm. One oh to psalm. One thirty we have all of these expressions in the psalms of these times of real severe suffering of real struggle and of appealing to god for his

The transition of she was born literally right on that line between being a millennial and gen z. She's on that line and put her her. Junior and senior year of high school was two thousand twelve and a lot of people might think will would. What's the significance of two thousand twelve eight research. Is this stuff. That number is a huge number and the reason why is in two thousand twelve is the year that first of all that america cross that fifty percent mark of carrying this thing in their pocket that that's when the majority of americans really switched over to smartphones two thousand twelve.

The Yogurt Shop Murders
"Today. We're gonna be talking about another harder incredibly intriguing but again the details in this will be difficult. This is a famous austin case. A four teenage girls found dead in an incinerated yogurt shop. This is the yogurt shop. Murders and december sixth nineteen ninety-one. It was a chilly friday night. In austin texas fifteen year old. Sarah harbison and her thirteen year old friend. Amy eire's or airs again apologies. If i get names wrong. Were at north. Chris mall in downtown austin in nineteen ninety-one they were milling around shopping. Just kind of killing time until sarah's sister jennifer and her friend and coworker allies at thomas. Seventeen with their late shift which would end around eleven pm. jennifer analyzer worked at the. I can't believe it's not yogurt. Shop located in the hillside strip mall blocks away from north cross mall. I can't believe it's yogurt. Is something that i was familiar with but again it's a very it's kind of a heavier. Texas chain founded in nineteen seventy seven. It's a pretty cool job to have. I can imagine as a teenager. You know easy kind of fun. i would also imagine. Sarah was excited that iran ten pm when she went to help jennifer analiza close up that she was. You know getting ready for her weekend. It was friday night. They were all going to to a friend's for sleepover party afterwards. It's it feels like a very. And this i think is what gets me too. It feels like a very like typical nineties. That i would have absolutely been part of and i could see myself in this specific time and place just before midnight austin police department officer troy gay was patrolling the area. He noticed smoke rising up from the strip mall. Gear reported as a fire and firefighters soon arrived on the scene as they were extinguishing the blaze. They saw it wasn't just a fire. It was a murder scene jennifer. Sarah amy elisa were dead. All of the girls were naked bound gagged with their own clothing jennifer. Sarah eliza were found deep in the store and a kind of supply closet clustered into one corner allies. And sarah were stacked on top of each other while jennifer lay close by legs were spread wide open. One body had an ice cream scoop placed on it. They were all shot in the back of the head. Execution style with a twenty two lead bullet. Sarah's hands have been tied behind her with a pair of underwear that she had also been gagged with and she was raped. Jennifer was not bound but her hands behind her back. Elisa have been gagged in her hands were also tied behind her their bodies were burned almost beyond recognition with napkins and other flammable items from around the shop on top of them clearly used to help burn their bodies. They also doused and lighter fluid. The fire was so bad in the room. Austin reporter. Dick ellis recounts the melted. The top rungs of a heavy aluminum ladder in the back of the store. Amy's body was discovered alone in a room closer to the main dining area. She was not as hard as friends but she received second and third degree burns on twenty five to thirty percent of her body. She was found with a sock like cloth around her neck. She had been raped shot similarly to the others but the bullet had missed her brain. She had a second bullet which did go through her brain hitting her cheek and exiting through her jaw based on the patterns in the rooms. Killer may have stacked all four bodies on top of each other but amy had pulled herself off and managed to crawl out to a different part of the store. There was five hundred and forty dollars missing from the store itself. Police also deduced. The two guns had been used to commit the murder suggesting there were multiple killers in the days. After i mean everyone was obviously incredibly upset but of course a lot of cases that we talk about lots of mistakes were made and lots of people were suspects. The police department had over three hundred suspects initially and lots of false confessions right out the gate. The i suspect was a fifteen year old maurice pierce who was caught with a twenty two handgun in north crest mall the same night as the murderers. The same gun used to kill at least one of them. Eight days later he was brought in although he initially promising information after tough questioning detectives decided maurice was trying to get himself out of a gun charge and eliminated him and his three friends that he had implicated. Michael scott roberts springsteen forrest wellborn. All of them were under seventeen. When pierce's gun was tested. The ballistic showed it didn't match the murder weapon. Also fingerprints and hair collected from the crime. Seed didn't match any of the four teens. Eventually the investigators just moved on still austin looked feverishly around for the person or people who could have done such a terrible thing
REMAP CAP | COVID-19 Clinical Research
"In california's los angeles county. The hardest hit area of the country. Many hospitals have no more room in their intensive care units so even as vaccines are developed and deployed to prevent covid nineteen cases. The remains an urgent need for drugs to help treat those. Who have it on seventh. A study called re map cap which is conducted in england and other countries report results from clinical trials of hugh drax which are currently used to treat. A chunk of is our healthcare correspondent. Do you results which have not yet been period but will be soon are very promising. They show that these drugs can reduce the death rate among styles to barely. Ill covid nineteen patients by around a quarter. And why is it. That drugs normally administered for arthritis would be a help in covid. Nineteen so these tracks tau cillizza mab and surreal. Ma'am there normally used to reduce inflammation in patients with arthritis and inflammation is a big problem with covid nineteen. It's actually one of the ways that actually kills severely. Ill patients and what happens. Is that the body's immune system calls information. It's usually helpful. That's how it fights off an infection but with covid nineteen in some patients. Information just goes overboard so it has been surge going on for over year for drugs that can prevent a hyper inflammation and so far we've had on the one drug. A steroid called exa medicine which was proven to reduce dramatically death rates. And how did these two drugs emerge as good candidates them. So dixon mechanism dampens the immune system across the bharat was and surreal. Map are a little bit more targeted. They are both made the antibodies that block they affect of a specific protein called interleukin. Six that is known to stock. They mean response and has been particularly prominent in patients with covid nineteen so they're really targeting proteins. Which is a big problem material patients. And so how did we come to know that these two drugs are so good. At reducing inflammation the clinical trial enrolled eight hundred patients. Who are customized for covid nineteen. Who are all ill enough to require. Transfer this carry units in. The results are really striking in the group of patients who received the standard treatment. Which already includes dixon on a standard of care. Nearly three six percent died in the group that receives the standard treatment and then on top of it one of these two and inflammatory drags only twenty seven percent of patients died. So that's a mass effect and another very important. Finding from the trial was the patients who received these tracks recover faster. They were discharged from hospitals seven to ten days earlier which also is a mass effect because normally covid nineteen patients in hospitals for a very long time and so with that knowledge in hand. Then how soon might we see it. Sort of put to use and wear. So does eliza map. One of the tracks is already being used here in the uk. There already suffice. In hospitals guidelines for treating covid nineteen patients already been changed and it will be attracted will be used in other countries soon. I'm sure but unlike some medicine which is a very cheap drag. It costs a couple of dollars for a course of treatment. The cost of these hugh anti inflammatory drugs is an issue in britain of course of treatment. Which is intravenous. Infusion costs around one thousand pounds. So that's really expensive for developing countries and although in britain it's probably very cost effective because a day intensive care in hospital costs the national health service here around thousand pounds per patients so compared to one thousand pounds for the drag. It's a good deal to say nothing of the lives. say so. It seems that we are finding more more treatments. more drugs. more things that are already clinically approved. Is there more in the pipeline like this that can give us a bit more hope about treating covid nineteen yes absolutely many more drags which are being tested around the world sam in very large clinical trials here in the uk where probably around the corner of covid nineteen patients in hospitals are enrolled in one trial another. Some of these trials have shown that some drugs are not effective which is also useful knowledge because they are rigorously. Conducted randomized trials with very large patient samples. So you can be very confident in the results but there are several other drugs. That are still being tested than we may. Well find more drugs. We can add to the treatment protocols. Thanks very much for joining us
FDA panel approves Covid vaccine in US
"Good evening we start with that breaking news from an independent. Fda advisory panel of experts late today giving its endorsement for emergency. Use a pfizer as covid vaccine here in the united states their recommendation. Now in the hands of the fda itself which could give its go-ahead any day now that would allow the start of an ambitious mass vaccination effort just as the country reels from loss of over three thousand people in a single day from the virus. Let's begin tonight with tom castillo. The virtual vote came after eight hours so back and forth on efficacy and safety and outside advisory panel of experts charged with giving the fda unbiased and unfiltered analysis of pfizer's covid vaccine the american public demand and deserve comprehensive and independent review of the data. Now the fda will decide whether to follow the uk and canada. In green-lighting the vaccine for emergency use. That decision could come within days or even hours. Fda commissioner hahn on we've shrunk in a process that normally takes months into one. That's taken weeks. And i have a one hundred percents confidence in them. And i believe the american people should as well wants. The fda approves operation warp speed will move into high gear thousands of ups and fedex trucks and planes mobilized nationwide the faa giving priority clearance to air cargo shipments. In the first week visor plans to ship. Roughly two point nine million doses each state's allocation based on his population with bigger states. Getting the most california receiving three hundred twenty seven. Thousand initial doses. Medium-size states like maryland. Minnesota about fifty thousand small estates and wyoming about five thousand initially across the country. Frontline medical workers will go first at the university of wisconsin mid center in madison. Their training to vaccinate the first two thousand staffers in the er icu and kobe. Units identified as group. One a you're talking about. Physicians advanced practice providers nurse practitioners and physician assistants respiratory therapists. Nursing assistants are registered nurses. That population has the highest touch points with the kobe. Positive patients already shipping one hundred fifty million kits that include syringes and p for starting the injection process all right. Tom joins us now. Tom some members of this advisory committee did raise issues some concern about those people on the uk who had some sort of an allergic reaction concern about that and some members want more research into the effect on sixteen and seventeen year olds also pregnant women that want to see how they fare with the vaccine. All right tom as you heard those frontline healthcare workers will be among the first to receive the vaccine once it gets final approval and an unprecedented distribution effort kicks in gabe. Beauty ariza's with some of them in michigan tonight in kalamazoo michigan just a few miles from this visor. Plant this staff at w. Med is preparing these ultra-cold freezers for some of the first doses of the vaccine. You're essentially one of the first parts of the supply chain yet. This is very cutting edge to be able to be one of those first people that potentially could get. That vaccine is is something extraordinary extraordinary because it feels like something out of the movies we expected vaccine rates and rollouts of vaccines and studies to take food or five years and the best of situations. This is six to nine months. This is like star trek. This is amazingly fast. Some healthcare workers have told us they feel some guilt taking vaccine i but they know they need it to better care for their patients. The medical community hoping to show anyone skeptical. The vaccine that it's safe is this the beginning of the end of the pandemic. I sure would like to hope so. Let's go ahead and take a deep breath for me. For dr eliza erskine the hardest part of treating cove is not always those infected. It's their families. I had one patient. I took care of icu that her son came to visit every day. It was glass doors there so he could come stand in the hallway and stare at her and he would come every evening in just watches. Mom for an hour. And it's heartbreaking here in michigan. This huge pfizer plant is at the ready at the. Fda approved some hospitals across the country are preparing to get their first vaccine doses. As early as monday

According to a source awesome accepted if confirmed austin. We'd be the first black secretary of defense but some dem's are taking issue with the selection because he's not he's a he's not been retired for more than seven years and would require congressional waiver. And but this isn't new. This is what they had to do for mattis when trump non nominated him for secretary of defense but it seems that Many of the deaths have said they would never support a waiver because of the importance of having civilian leadership of the military so blumenthal opposed the waiver as well Slot consists he. We shouldn't be appointing anyone that requires a waiver Biden wrote a detailed defense though of his selection. Saying because austin works well under pressure. He's clearly qualified. But you know. If they're going to i i don't know if they're holding. You know everyone else to the same standard with this waiver. But it'll be interesting to see if this pushback at all. I'm biting clearly.

The Social Dilemma and Otherness
"Just to have a smaller maybe episode just me. Thinking out loud with you and this one is about I call it the social dilemma and otherness in I. Don't know if any of you watched the Netflix documentary called the social dilemma. I watched it not too long ago and it was disturbing at it was as it was intended to be I won't pretend to be a movie reviewer that's not my thing. But I. Thought it was very good and I thought it brought a ton of points about social media In clearer view for those of us who may have. been aware of this but not to the extent that it actually was true. But to put my reviewer had on though I thought that the acting out of the personalized a algorithms were Eliza. Bit of a stretch but it did break up the talking heads which might have been boring for people after a while although I personally like talking head documentaries. But. The point of this. episode is, is about the key theme of the documentary and it's the way our minds are manipulated by social media platforms and the manipulation, and how the manipulation was intentional by the big tech players or the company's the money behind the big tech. The twist though is that the intentional manipulation was aimed at our attention. To get us to buy things but the super efficiency of the algorithms designed to do that. Was Not anticipated. They didn't think it was going to be good as it was then the negative consequences on human thinking and behavior was also nad intended. So it was sort of like creating a Frankenstein and I think one of the one of the people who reviewed on that one of the tech players who were reviewed actually said it was like creating a Frankenstein. The buying in quote unquote into distorted ideas about the world ourselves and each other that have become nearly ubiquitous sense. The pandemic Allah the rise of Cunanan and stand startling panoply of conspiracy theory and times been great awakening groups that have grown to amazing proportions to the point of moving beyond their virtual groups and into the world to act out demonstrations, hate speech and even violence.

After watching this documentary I continued to reflect about how it really does feel like the world is going crazy.

Let's first talk about the University of Michigan graduate students there. Another employees are striking over Coben, 19 precautions and the reopening of campus. Tell us what they're protesting, or what the advocating for So the graduate employee organization orgy EO represents about 2000 grad student instructors They've been striking since last week. Their demands include, among other things, the universal right to work remotely. They also want more testing for Corona virus on campus. I talked with a mere Fleischman He's a graduate student who teaches political theory. He was out on the picket lines this morning at 5 A.m., he said. They felt like they tried everything to get the attention of the university and it didn't work. We've held protests we held it died. We've had car caravan. It's been an impact bargaining for months. This has gotten us nowhere. We felt that we had no other option but to engage in strike. And Eliza. What do university Michigan officials have to say about all this? We'll yesterday the U of M President Mark Schlissel, ask the courts to intervene and send the grad students backto work. It's illegal in the state of Michigan for education workers to strike and that ruling is expected by the end of the week. Student workers say. Until then, they'll continue to be on the picket lines. All right, So the University of Michigan has thousands of students living in dorms and taking in person classes. But just north of there is Michigan State in East Lansing, which is all online.

There's been a big jump in cases since some students returned to the town last month, and that's despite the fact that they're not taking any classes in person this weekend, the university as students living in town to quarantine for two weeks to help curb the spread. I've been keeping in touch with an MSU freshman named Sidney Harakah Veena. She's living in an off campus apartment with her roommates. I called yesterday to ask her about the lock down, and instead she told me that she herself had just tested positive for Corona virus. I was trying to be safe. My roommates were trying to be safe like we kind of avoided like the bigger scenes like I wouldn't want to go somewhere where I could get it. But like even my remains friends, they don't abide by that. And now it really just like, bit them and us in the butt because we hung out with them, and then they had it. So it really was a chain effect. All of her roommates are also positive, though none of them have symptoms, and the three of them are isolating in their apartment. She told me she's already feeling a little restless eye, but they are so how do these two schools fit into what you're hearing across the country in your reporting? Well what colleges air. Finding all over the country is that all it takes is a small all group of students going to parties for the virus to really start making its way through social circles and into the surrounding community. You know, The other thing is the high positive cases in East Lansing show us that colleges don't actually have that much control over this as they might like right because classes are already online there, So I think it's an important lesson for schools that have in person classes because it shows there really aren't that many good options. For shutting the semester down. That's NPR's Listen that morning. She covers higher and thanks for following this, we look forward to hearing more of your report says You continue throughout the fall of school continues. Thanks so much, Sasha.

The Labor Department says, adding in claims from programmes like the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Program puts the total number of Americans receiving jobless benefits. At 29 million.

Rose McGowan Claims Alyssa Milano Made the Charmed Set Toxic AF
"There's is daily top. We have so many feuds to talk about today starting with rose McGowan claim that a listen the Llano. made the charm set toxic A. Okay this whole thing started as a political view, but then it got very personal rose accused of throwing fits in front of the crew on the set of charmed rose even says she cried every ten shows renewed because a listen made the set. So toxic in a statement to news listen. Milano said hurt people hurt people commenting any further doesn't align with my wellness plan we have not yet heard back from rose or or Warner, brothers, which produced charm. So a lot to unpack here. Again, it started off very political was a Democrat argument but then rose went there why he thinks she went there to bring charm to behavior. Look, hold. One hundred percent and if we're fighting and I'm holding a grudge against somebody I'm pulling out every receipt I don't care it. One Thousand Nine, hundred, ninety, nine, hundred. This is an audit. We're going to have this fight whether you like it or not. I guess that's true and also she's trying to discredit a list right? That's her way of saying like you shouldn't. You can listen to. Elissa because she's not as relatable as you think because listen to this she may two hundred thousand dollars a week on charm and was still throwing right she didn't get paid enough. It's like a way to discredit. I don't know. That is also. To your argument, sometimes, people will buy into that and be like absolutely. You know what? She's right rose you. If she's FELICIA's really as bad as you say that I'm listed work she says, but then other people can see right through that to say like obviously you have a grudge obviously, you don't like her you've made that very clear. You said it in an interview you do not like or. Do we really trust your opinion because it's obviously very biased. I just feel like this has become somewhat sticky with rose like we can just expect her to just go off and sort of sale of these things and quite frankly does anybody really care twenty years later if the listen. Milano through set like threw a fit onset of charms like I just don't think that's relevant to the conversation like none of us were there. None of us really really cared that much about how she behaved obviously, you want to be respectful to the crew and people that work really hard. To put on a production as we all know but we've all had bad days on this show I just feel like if in fifteen years, one of us were to be like well, she was impossible to deal with. It's like, okay. Then you should have said something then I feel like it's just so kind of in line with WHO rose is trying to be now and I'm not saying that she likes her and I'm not saying that she feels like she's credible or that she believes in anything she says. Every time someone says something that has nothing to do with you. That doesn't mean you need to go and jump in on it. And I, I hate to say this because I'm not away from everybody's experiences and I always say this you gotTa pick struggle and you've got to stick with that struggle and pick up a fight and fight as hard as you can. If you're fighting in the me too movement because it happened to you I totally get it. You're also writing because somebody was in a toxic work environment made something toxic fighting another break, and then what's next if something else comes up and you're fighting about that as well take you just take it away and makes it seem like you're only saying those things because. Of the week, right right and it's also like she made two, hundred, fifty, thousand dollars a week like made that much money. It was a hit show like I don't I also don't see how that's relevant. You know what I mean like you don't need to also bring up how much somebody made I. Don't think that that's her pleasure bill, but I will say. It rose McGowan felt leg she made. made the workplace toxic that are that's her feelings. That's her way of engaging and listened with tolerance to her. She don't have to do it over the air. She can do on the phone and just throw rose a my dad if I if you thought that way and I did that to you but I, don't think. Anymore. I don't think. I'm. Giving that apology I'm sorry I. Think we know a lot of different people not everybody has a good day I. Think People think just because you're on television or you're part of ensemble cast like your life is so easy. It's a lot of hard work that goes into this. So maybe she maybe she had a bad week or month or whatever. But there's a lot of people that we've experienced that can be toxic or disruptive or difficult to deal with. But that's just sort of this part of this dysfunctional family you keep that within yourself. You don't need to go and spread around and the and the truth is like the whole point rose trying to make was was again a political argument and so politics you know just keep arguing your facts and I think that's a fair argument to have. We argue politics stop in this country. So if you want to argue that with Eliza and you guys want to go back and forth about what who vote for do that. But I say again as you guys said, keep the history out of it because honestly just makes your arguments. Lesson weaker. We aren't just there's no right word. Thank point.
Britney Spears' Ex-Husband Wants Her Back
"Events daily pop. Hey remember when Britney Spears married Jason Alexander for just fifty five hours. Well, he wants her back now. Yes. They're right. Jason was spotted at a free privy protests at the courthouse yesterday he told us weekly. He still has love for Britney and he'd quote definitely the open rekindling their romance quote if they would give us an honest chance. Is he serious right now old what is furious? Is this heat in? Los. Angeles put that photo backup with the orange shirts. I can see that under boop sweat real quick. You know how hot it is in this Place look at. That alone. Look better though. Her he looks good. But I just like what is this guy I mean he clearly has nothing going on like the fact that he's GonNa show up even just give us weekly any sort of exclusively come on. This was how many years ago twelve thirty claims that two thousand four was when this fifty five, our wedding are. happened. They were childhood friends they got married very briefly. Now they've been I think in touch a little bit throughout the years I doubt recently my goodness. So the things he had to say about Sam you guys San has to be so livid right now. Right. So he said I got to see this code and he said I don't know him. He looks like he's in good shape but I'm in good shape. So Bravo to him she's got some type of feelings for him I. Guess I'm like Oh, my Gosh San if he ever sees you, he's going to punch you in the face. He's never gonNA. See Him this guy ever not a factor in her life, and this is the problem. What happens is even though he went there with good intentions quote unquote this just makes everything that Brittany's fighting for a spectacle and it makes it joke and if he really loved her and really wanted to be a part of her life and really wanted to help her, he would have stayed away from that camera and not became this headline. One hundred percent, and also for him to be like if they gave us an honest chance, she doesn't want you like I. Don't know who they. Does not she has no interest in rekindling your relationship I. Promise you that I don't know where he gets off thinking. Oh, if they just would just believe in our love like she's not petitioning for you bro at all, she's not looking for you in any day. Ever Gosh tell it like it is mortgage. Ed I love the. If a man sit outside like that for me I would feel some type of way about it in the. Sweat It's always flattering, right? It's always flattering to see. Talk about how he wants you back I. Mean it's Nice to hear whether you care or not of. The protest was held at the courthouse because there was a hearing about getting Brittany's data removed as conservative as we told, you yesterday according to court documents I'm really wants her care manager Jody Montgomery to step in permanently. So Jason has thoughts on that to telling US weekly Britney doesn't want to be under the conservative ship and he wants her to get what she rightly deserves. So how does he? Oh, how does he know he has not been in contact with her is will be. Governed from ghost talking to this man talent him where Britney saying he has no idea and Britney has said exactly what she wants and this for him. This was kind of a bold move because this hearing wasn't about changing anything this hearing was about let's check in. Let's see what's happening. The real hearing will come once they file papers and once she puts in court writings that she wants this change. This guy's making it worse for her get off her bag they offer not it's just. Weird. Do you think the intention because he wants Brittany back or he wants his own fame or he just was truly going there out of love for Brittany, and truly feels that she feels trapped and was trying to be a voice for her? What do you think I can't believe this I can't believe this is our Abe. Block. Are you kidding he therapy for fifteen minutes and it's going to be four because this is the last time we're talking about this. This is insane person. We have not heard one word about this person in sixteen years six I'm too hot over this. Crazy. You'll get the fifty. He'll get the fifty because what will happen is Cara Delevingne will see him on the news noticing that he's getting airtime. So then she'll date him to make Ashley Benson Jealous, and then he'll get twenty minutes. Oh my God. We're bringing car delving into this way. Okay. Well, let's move onto a couple that we've also talked about a couple of times before. New Year. So Tomorrow Laurie Lachlan and her husband Massimo are scheduled to be sitting for their roles in the college admissions gets scandal at the same time. The government's recently filed sentencing memo raises questions about what their daughter Olivia Jade may have known. So here's the new stuff. You guys. So Libya is never mentioned by name in the document, but they're quote. Younger. Daughter is referred to specifically prosecutors say in one incident Laurie Mossy Ma and they're quote younger daughter discussed how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme. So the family has not spoken out, but a source close to the family says their daughters had nothing to do with this. So if what the prosecutors are saying is true. That Olivia Jay did know about this do you feel she should be punished as well as her parents? Here She did no I just hello even if she knew or did not know she is a child and was a minor at this point in her life. That age you do as your parents tell you to do you follow suit you. You'd even realize the difference between right and wrong I could barely drive through MC. At that point by myself, give me a break. There's no reason that this young girl should be punished for anything like I understand her parents made a mistake we've been talking about it when I was reading the research is warning I was like for over a year literally been talking about this now for over a year and it's dwindled down to two or three months and five months number one. The she was seventeen. Leave her out of it. It's not relevant for her to be involved with the fact that their names are mentioned I get it. They need to be to kind of paint a full picture you do what your parents, how you to do. This is how we're getting into college. Sweetie you go. Okay. Mom just let me know where I need to be et Cetera not true Morgan you do what your parents tell you to do but let's say let's say you've got some awful parents right? Like I'm not saying these people are saying you got some awful parents and they say honey were broke I want you to go steal some milk and some candy bars and some cereal, and you know what? Go ahead and grab that xbox to they won't even suspect you. You're a teenager just go do it. Okay. If they get caught that could go to Juvie or get some sort of legal. Question. So Matt Your question. Your mother. Makes you sign your name on legal documents that puts you as a as the lender on alone and your mother then defaults on it ten years later should be. Held Liable Harris of thousand dollar loan that your mother made you sign for when you're seventeen or would you fight it? Well that's different because you would never have hypothetical situation that happened in. Dollar Loan. Drill, trust. It happens on sweet bitter. I just saw show where it happened. So where do you bring up that example? I agree with Morgan when you're seventeen years old if my mother would have told me sign the papers for this D to my kidney I wouldn't have asked two questions about it because my mother told me. But my problem is. This is the problem my judicial system we're sitting here worried about what a seventeen year old may or may not have known meanwhile Brianna Taylor's killers walking around free and the people who accosted Eliza McLean have not been nothing has been done to them. We know exactly what happened. We've seen the camera footage we've gone through everything. Why are we focusing on this and not focusing on what we do know?
The Impact of Voice Tech on Human Communication
"What do you think about? Do you have an opinion on the use of human voices with these devices and things like that. In general when you hear a device, should you know it's a device talking to you? Should it be differentiated from human voice are in your mind is the ideal for it to be indistinguishable from human I. think There's two elements I mean there's the the naturalness of the humanist of the voice, and then as knowing it wasn't a human who actually made the. Response. So I think having a human voice is beneficial and I understand the studies have shown that people respond better to human voices that more motive etcetera but I think people should know that they're not talking to a human. They're always talking to something that was designed by human. It still contains human bias. You know these questions not came from somewhere but I don't think people like to be tracked and at this stage in this kind of early stages talented. Build the trust in the TAC. I agree with that and there's no way when you're looking at that device on your countertop that you're like, oh my gosh, I thought there was a person in there there isn't like. To me, I think it's a very interesting question about. Because you can see that like Amazon gave their device a human name Alexa. Supposed to hearken back to the. It's got the hard x so it's easy for it to pick it up and it hearkens back to the library at Alexandria as I understand learn. A. personification and and what's interesting to You got like RTD to see three Po. Those characters would have a different feel to them if they were named Fred and George. Right because. I wonder about the act of naming something and embodying giving. An actual human voice I wonder and again, this is probably one of those things that I'll probably be revealed to be quite provincial. If that is not going to long-term corrosive to the notion of human rights in general. There's anybody thinks so yeah, just. Send a movement against the name Alexa in itself. There's obviously a movement against all these voices having female sounding voices, and now that people are generating these non binary voices. To give it the kind of sound of a robot, but still with those human element so it still sounds personable, but it doesn't necessarily sound like it's emulating. or account to the find real life someone childlike was submissive or any of these characteristics that you might not want to replicate in a robot. Right? You know when Alexa starts to say something and she ramble on something I just tell her to stop just like tell her shut up basically right do you think that affects human interactions more inclined to cut other people off if that just becomes the norm or do you not think that's really an issue. I reckon does to some extent especially, if you have kids who learned from an early age that cater to to have those kind of conversations, the more practice you get with these kinds of woods, the more likely you're going to let them slip into normal conversation with real humans. It does kind of reminded me a little bit of the Duval. Video Games caused people to be violent kind of question that we've been going. Around on and I tend to err on the side of no for that, you can tell the difference between fake onscreen violence and what real violence actually looks like. But when it comes to compensation given, our aim is to make these conversations as life as possible. I'm not sure whether the boundary there is as visible as is noticeable I would be hesitant and if I had kids and they were being extra retail voice assistant. Cut Out. Yeah. You know and it's interesting because we've had to claw early as a species to get to hiding this notion. Of Human Rights this that there are things you do not do to another person no matter what. Entertainment doesn't matter who they are, how bad they are, whatever you just don't do it because being a human nobles view and you wonder what happens if someday you build a device that looks basically ninety percent like a human and talks ninety percent like human and all the rest, and then one day when it's not working and you just throw it in the trash heap, and by Newin, is that corrosive to this very fragile thing we've made that there's something uniquely special about being human, right? You know. I was GONNA. Say I weighed by before she is read the heart of the machine is wonderful book talks about a motive machines, emotional machines, and after reading that book it was it was a good summary of all the different affective computing technologies that are out there at the moment and paint some examples of how they could be used and it did make me think at the end that if you do create these machines are more personable, more natural to interact with the number of fantastic use cases that you can. Use Machines fall well, really open up but at the same time, maybe make appreciate each other as humans because they won't be exact human they'll be nearly human and maybe it's in our interest to make them nearly human but not exactly human. You don't want to cross that threshold and I thought it might be similar to US discovering extraterrestrial life another planet that suddenly win alone sending we've got this other forced to contend with and we appreciate each other a little bit more because maybe that's naive you but that's why. Well I shouldn't familiar with wise and bomb and Eliza. Like the setup for this story is in the sixties, there was just fella named Weisbaum at early computer science guy and he made a chat Bot called Elisa and is a very simple chat bot because the computing power they had and you would say to allies on your touch about it. You would say I'm having a bad day in the program and say, why are you having a bad day and use having a bad day because of my mom is your mom making you had a bad day. And so on and Weissenbach bomb. Everybody knew it was a program but why isn't bomb saw? People pouring their heart out to it. And it disturbed him so much that he unplugged it and raced it said no because he said when Elisa says I understand. It's a lie because there's no. And there's nothing that understands anything and. oftentimes, the answers that they put in these systems. Where the devices purport to have preferences or things they like or don't like. I find it creepy and again, maybe that's just my I'm kind of Weissenbach. Of person there. There was this twilight zone episode back in the sixties where. Sky Stranded on some penal planet all by himself in solitary and they bring him a robot to keep him company, and then he gets a pardon because he turns out he didn't do it and they send to spaceship to get him picking up and they only have enough wait for him. You can't take his robot with him and so he says I'm not going I'm staying until I don't know that it's a great time to have those conversations because all of these are still open questions. I hope the technology develops in a thoughtful way and. You know not just like, Hey, we can make sound exactly like a person and give it a person's name and have it purport to have feelings let's do it because people want that
Mail Delivery In Swing States Falls Short, Worrying Elections Officials
"You're planning to vote by mail this election, there are troubling signs that on time mail delivery is not meeting the standards set by the Postal Service. A PM reports the investigations unit of American Public Media analysed first class mail delivery data, and it found that mail service in critical swing states is worse than a year ago. Elections officials worry that late ballots may never be counted. Tom shek has the story. The Corona virus pandemic has prompted tens of millions of people across the country to consider something different this November voting by mail, Wisconsin resident Eliza Werner is one of them. In June. She and her husband requested absentee ballots for the August primary. But she started worrying after not getting her ballot after waiting a month as people started talking more and more about the upcoming election. I just thought, you know I really should have received that by now. It's been a couple of weeks, she says. She was told other voters in the Milwaukee suburb reported similar problems. The clerk canceled Warner's initial ballot and re sent new ones. Elections officials say Nearly 700 ballots were not delivered to Milwaukee area voters for this week's primary. And that comes just months after thousands of ballots didn't reach Wisconsin voters in the April primary. And analysis of mail delivery confirms voter complaints. The Postal District serving eastern and southern Wisconsin repeatedly failed to meet on time delivery goal since 2016 putting it in the bottom quarter of districts across the country. Wisconsin isn't the only swing state Postal district failing to meet delivery standards. Detroit's on time delivery for two day male plunged nearly 22% since last year. None of this surprises. Tina Barton, She's an election's manager in Michigan and says some primary voters there complained about never even getting ballots in the mail. So even a couple weeks prior to that I had a City council member tell me that they had gone four days and had not received any mail and so about a couple weeks prior to the election, I was really starting to sound the alarm to people and I had important, says she started telling voters who requested ballots in the run up to the primary to return them in person. Timely mail delivery is important because Michigan, like more than half the states requires ballots to be returned by election Day. Postal officials are urging voters to mail their ballots at least a week before Election Day. They also say they're working with elections officials to educate them about election male standards. Speaking before the Postal Services Board of governors last week, Postmaster General Lewis to Joy said election male will be delivered in a timely manner. We have delivery standards that have been in place for many years. The standards have not changed, and despite any associations to the contrary. We're not slowing down Election mail or any other male. We are dealing with a directive under the new postmaster general that is not seeking to improve the delivery performance. Timmy Patrick is an election male expert for the Democracy fund. She says to Joy's recent changes to how the postal services run will make mail delivery slower at a time when it needs to speed up When you eliminate over time when you change the work ethos of an entire organization that is get the mail through To leave it behind. It's going to cause problems to joy made his changes after the on time delivery data was collected for the last quarter, leading Patrick to suspect It's even worse now. Individual postal carriers and a union leader representing postal workers also say the changes, air leading toe upheaval and significant delays across the country. Elections officials are urging voters to hand deliver their balance to a drop box or elections office if it's close to election Day. Still, some voting rights advocates say that doesn't go far enough. Allison Riggs leads the voting rights program at the Southern Coalition for Social Justice in North Carolina. She says. North Carolina doesn't have a lot of experience handling mail ballots. Couple that with mail delivery worries and rig says it's better to vote in person were suddenly talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of new things to be in the mail. Back in Wisconsin, ELISA Werner says she'll again request a ballot be mailed to her for the November election. But she won't return it by mail.

So I'm back in the studio with Delaney Hall and you've got more to tell us about some interesting stuff that's happened with natural language processing in just about a year. Yeah a lot of interesting stuff has happened just recently So as I was interviewing people for the story I was talking with computer scientists US and historians and we're talking about wisn bauman his legacy and these fears he had about chat bots fooling people And totally unprompted. A couple of people brought up this one recent development in natural language processing. It's something that's called. GP T to so GP T to a stands for generalized Pre trained transformer. I can't remember what it stands for so Melanie Mitchell one of the computer. Scientists I spoke with is is close. it stands for generative pray train transformer to and it's this relatively new neural network that generates incredibly convincing text ext somebody described it as a mouth without a brain which is a good statement and the way that ubt not too works is that you can input a word or a sentence or a paragraph in the program then generates text based on that input basically basically conjures up a whole coherent piece of writing based on just a few words that you get this giant neural network that is trained on a huge corpus of text to predict the next word in a sentence or a paragraph given the preceding text. Here's Brian Christian. Who who who we also heard from in this story you get what appear to be plausible if very slightly weird screenplays and you know news? Bulletins is and chat message histories and all sorts of things. Okay so I'm having a hard time pay train that so like what are some examples of the type of texts. Degenerates like like how why. Why and how is it so convincing? So the example. That kind of broke the Internet when all of this first came out. Was this fake news story about UNICORNS in the the Andes was the missed that one. What's notable yeah? Yeah I know so this will help you understand and a little bit better kind of how it works. I think so the prompt that GP who was given and so this was a couple of sentences that were written by a human and and given to the machine and I guess should be cleared. This was written in the style of a new story. That was that was intentional. So the prompt was quote it. In a shocking finding scientists discovered a herd of unicorns living in a remote previously unexplored valley in the Andes Mountains. Even more surprising to the researchers was the fact that the UNICORNS spoke perfect English. Okay so a human a human of those sentences and then fed them to the machine. The machine spit back out so totally independently based on those sentences this is what. GPT To generate it and it actually goes on for quite a while but are Redo the first few lines just because they're amazing it goes the scientists named the population after their distinctive horn. Born ovid's Unicorn. These four horned silver white UNICORNS were previously unknown to science now. After almost two centuries the mystery st of what sparked this odd phenomenon is finally solved Dr Hor Hey Perez and evolutionary biologist from the University of La Paz and several other companions canyons. Were exploring the Andes mountains. When they found a small valley with no humans or animals Peres? Notice that the valley had what appeared to be Natural Fountain to surrounded by two peaks of rock and silver snow and so it goes on for a few more paragraphs but Roman machine. A machine wrote that a machine Added all the detail about Dr Perez University Pause and everything. That's just from the machine I know and there's a couple things that really stand out to me when I'm reading it and the first of course is that you know the sentences are coherent like if you told me a human wrote them I I would not doubt you neither neither. That's that's incredible. And then it has those details like the names and the location of the university which lineup pray with the pro and then the other thing it does is that it it. Does this pretty convincing job of mimicking the format of a news article so it starts parts with like lead sentences they give you the most crucial information and only then does it begin to tell the story of how. The discovery unfolded well. It's so cool. I almost can't make sense of how. How real that feels? I mean this is pretty silly with UNICORNS towards the end but I I mean I imagine you know this is making people nervous. A computer can generate this convincing of texted. That is if it came from a human. Yeah absolutely so the company that created the program called open. Ai Released this paper and it had various examples of text generated narrated by this narrow neck and it caused a huge stir online partly because it did such a good job and partly because it made people immediately nervous like the idea that this text is so convincing. Gets back to that idea that we talked about in the episode which is like will people know this was written by a machine and because it generated a very convincing and totally fake news article people are worrying that the tool could supercharge the spread of misinformation on the Internet. Right I mean what do you do like once you make a thing like that. How do you make sure it doesn't do that? How do you make sure it doesn't is used for nefarious ends? So the way that open approached it was when they when they first released leased news about it. They said we've made this thing. Here are some examples of the text it generates it is extremely convincing and and because of that. We're not going to actually release the code. It's too dangerous. WHOA yeah the only problem with that is it's like the streisand effect? Like if you say you can't use it and don't recreate it. It just means that more people are going to try to create an use. That sort of thing. I mean just calls more attention to do it so yeah it did. It did call a lot of attention to it. Here is Melanie Mitchell again. A bunch of people just like jumped on them they were saying this is just a publicity city stunt and there were of course the Popular Press Doomsday headlines about you know open a creates an AI. That so powerful. It's too dangerous to release so so basically open A. I got a lot of pushback but the whole situation also inspired this interesting interesting conversation in the community about these really tough questions that they're facing now now that they can generate water known as deep deep fakes. Not just in text but in audio and video to these are these are really convincing. Computer generated pieces of of media. So so here's Melanie. How should people think about publishing results in? Ai Is it better to publish these things and get them out there so that people can do research each on how to protect or defend against them or should they not be published at all so there is a big conversation about that. I mean I guess I wonder like you know this obviously has a problem with fooling people. But you couldn't a human just write an entire fake news article or a bunch of them and post online how does gpt to make things really all that different. That was something I asked Melanie. And she said that the issue is released scale like sure she could sit down and write a story about UNICORNS herself and posted online and tweeted out and try to make it go. I roll But it would take time it would take effort and instead gpt to could generate literally millions of these stories very quickly. And here you can just do it automatically generate as many of these as you want you could put them online and somebody's going to believe them. It just makes it easy to to create these nice things and publish them. And it's hard to fight back you know and the tough thing is that you know were already living in an online information environment where it can be hard to sort the real from the fake. Here's an account that says. They're the Tennessee Republican Party or are they you know. Here's this thing that says it's the trump fan club of MISSOULA. Is it like. Here's this person who claims they're retired. Navy seal are they. We're we're increasingly moving into this world in which it's just really hard to make sense out of discourse on the web without being extremely scrupulous and vigilant I mean seems like this generation from now on. We're going to have major media literacy training. I mean it's just he to to be able to spot the fakes from the real thing is going.

"When Joseph Wise inbound was still alive he liked to tell the story about a computer program created back in the nineteen sixties as a professor at Mit? It was a simple chat. Bot named Eliza that could interact with the users in a conversation wise inbound as his secretary to try it out. I asked her to my office and sat down at the keyboard and then she began to type. Of course I looked virtual to to make sure that everything is waiting properly. Wise inbound watched as the secretary type a message to allies and then as the program responded to our after two or three interchanges with with the machine she turned to me and she said would you mind leaving the room plays. The secretary was so entranced by this Chat Bot not that she didn't want to stop exchanging messages. Weissenbach secretary fat under the spell of the machine. Why bounds this happening over and over again? People would reveal very intimate details about their lives to the program. It was like they've just been waiting for someone for something to to ask. Elisa was a simple computer program producer Delaney Hall. The way it worked was it would recognize a keyword in the user statement and then reflect it back in the form of a simple phrase or question when Elisa got confused or couldn't parse a statement it would fall back on set phrases like. Please go John or tell me. More wasn't bomb had programmed Elisa to interact in the style of a psychotherapist and it was pretty convincing. It gave the illusion of empathy. The even though it was just simple code. Here's an exchange. Dramatized documentary segment begins with the human men all alike and then the computer program answers in what way they're always talking about something or other. Can you think of a specific example. Pull well my boyfriend made me come here. Boyfriend made you come here. He says I'm depressed much time. I'm I'm sorry to hear that you're depressed. It's true I am unhappy. Coming here will help you not to be unhappy. Elisa was one of the very first computer programs. That could convincingly simulate human conversation and wasn't bone got weirded out by the way that people reacted to it didn't expect them to be so captivated. He feared that they were being fooled. That they didn't really understand. It was just a bunch of circuits on the other end and he wondered if it was so easy to mimic a sense of human understanding. Then what does that say about human understanding. Why isn't bom started raising these big difficult questions? At a time. When the field of artificial intelligence was still relatively new and mostly filled with optimism many researchers dreamed of creating a world ruled where humans and technology merged in new ways? They wanted to create computers. That could talk with us and respond to our needs and desires but Wisenberg isn't bound would take a different path. He would begin to speak out against what he saw as the eroding boundary between humans and machines and he eventually a break from the artificial intelligence Zia becoming one of the first and loudest critics of the technology he helped to build people have long been fascinated with mechanical devices that imitate humans. Ancient Egyptians built statues of divinities from wood and stone consulted them for advice early. Buddhist scholars described precious metal people that would recite sacred texts and weep. Oh the Greeks accepted wonderful attitude toward robots and machines. They welcomed them. This is Pamela McCormick. And she wrote machines who think one of the first modern histories of artificial intelligence and she says that in Greek mythology the God who festus who is the god of blacksmith him loved to make robots he created created all kinds of robots and one to help him out in the forge and all kinds of party. Help you know things would roll into the parties of the gods with trays and whatnot nod. And there's a wonderful description homer they are like lovely young women and there is intelligence in their hearts flash forward nearly twenty five hundred years to the nineteen forties in the Mid Nineteen and the twentieth century and different kind of tool with invented tool for extending certain. Certain of the powerless to my this tool is the electronic computer. As modern computers became more powerful Foale and widely available people begin to believe that this fantasy of intelligent machines that could think and communicate might actually be within grasp. The Abo was most famously articulated by the British mathematician Alan Turing and he wrote this very famous paper in nineteen fifty called Computing Machinery Rian intelligence which begins with this famous line. Can Machines think. This is Brian Christian. He wrote the most human human. What talking with computers? There's teaches us about what it means to be alive during his already. Sort of seeing head into the twenty first century and imagining. What if someday we do manage to build a machine that can actually quote unquote think? How would we know that we had built such a machine? This is a hard task because it's difficult to even define what it means to think. Let alone prove that a computer is doing it but turing approach the question like the engineer sneer. He was proposing a simple test. He said that if a computer could regularly fool people into thinking it was in fact a human it would pass during predicted addicted that this would eventually happen so consistently that as a result we would just as a society he says. Come to this point where we would speak of machines as being intelligent without expecting to be contradicted. The turing test brought up really profound questions ones. We've been thinking about since the days of Greek robots and precious metal people. What does does it mean to have a mind? How do you bridge that gap from one? Mind to another is language kind of the best or only means that we have for doing that. How does empathy you work? What are the limits of empathy? They're not fundamentally technological questions. Fundamental human questions and they're questions that would come to occupy Joseph wise inbound the Creator Elisa before turning against artificial intelligence wise inbound helped develop it he was part of an early generation of AI. Researchers back back in the fifties they started exploring how to give computers new human like powers. They programmed computers to reason plan and perceive. They created programs grams. That could play checkers. Solve word problems improved logical theorems. The press at the time described their work as stoning. Herb Simon one of the most prominent. Ai I research at the time predicted that within twenty years on the nineteen eighties machines would be capable of doing any work. A person could do just like today. These advances made people pretty anxious for Millennia. Humans had defined themselves as rational creatures. He was ability to reason and use logic. And you play chess. That made a special. It is exactly those things that the computer came in and within a handful of years was better than any human could ever hope to be and so it really pulled that rug out from under US but despite all the big leaps forward there was one realm in particular Taylor where computers remained quite dumb. They struggled to master human language which is known. Ai As natural language natural language inge processing or understanding if you will is probably the hardest problem for a melanie. Mitchell is a computer scientist and researcher. When we we communicate in language we're using all of our thought processes were using our vast knowledge of the way the world works about other people and their goals and motivations were descend big? You waiting words. It's really almost equivalent to cognition itself. So as an example of this Mitchell says think about this sentence a steel ball fell on a glass table and it shattered. If you ask what does it refer to. Humans will understand immediately. Of course we know that if a steal balls on a class table the glass table shatters. But but that's because we know about what glasses steel is we know about things falling on other things and and we know a lot about the way the world works but computers don't don't know that stuff unless their program to they don't actually know about glass and steel and gravity and actually programming all that information into a computer. Shooter is really labor intensive and difficult because that knowledge is mostly subconscious for us. It's so intuitive as to be almost invisible and this is something that comes up again and again in natural language processing systems is that they don't have the kind of knowledge about the world that we humans humans have and so they make mistakes. This clumsiness with human language meant that early chat bots built in the nineteen fifties and sixties were tightly highly constrained they could converse about some very specific topic. Like say baseball. So you could ask about Joe Dimaggio's batting average in nineteen forty nine and the computer. We'll tell you. And by limiting the world of possible questions and answers. Researchers could build machines that passed as intelligent but talking with them was. It's like having a conversation with wikipedia. Not a real.

If when i'm out with anka or burt and i know that i have family friends in the audience. I like to see them because i'm excited but if i'm playing you know if i'm doing like a classical solo hello and i have any amount of nervousness.

I'm thinking of doing it because i'm sick and tired of going online every night right and seeing you know the stone to plan thursday wake up friday morning.
