Dr. Leana Wen (with Rock the Boat)

"I'm happy to join you today. I am dr lena. I'm emergency physician and public health professor george washington university. I also previously served as the health commissioner for the city of baltimore into it wouldn't be a complete introduction here without mentioning that i am a chinese american immigrant. My parents and i came to the us. Just before. i turned eight. And i'm also the you mother of two. I have a son who just turned three and a baby daughter who is five months old. My gosh congratulations. I also noticed that you are from shanghai. As am i so. I don't know if that you still speak shanghainese at all at home. I actually never did. Because i was raised primarily with my grandparents on my father's side whom did not come from shanghai and so i understand shanghainese but actually never spoke. We will not do a practice here. team that don't come late rayo he say you're gonna understand it and kerley speak it. It's always great to connect with somebody from my hometown. We always love to start with an origin story. Lena and you just have such an incredible ordinance story. And you've talked about it in your ted talks and everything but i'm kind of curious like what little was like thinking about this because i look at my son and someone told me prior to you having kids and i didn't really understand this. They said your son or your your children will have all of your best characteristics but also all of your worst characteristics whereas you as parents or adults are able to filter out to end can elise temper your worst. Tendencies your wounded just wash. Show you on your worst using so. I'm thinking about that as i'm answer your question because when i see my son i think is a lot of the same of the worst tendencies up. I think i was very opinionated. Child if you who's who as adults don't find surprising at all. I don't know if i threw a lot of tantrums by son deafening does so i. I'm not sure if it from me or my husband but you know because my parents and i came. When i was pretty young and i think like many immigrant families. We went through a lot of hardships. When we first came to the us we came to utah. Which is another kind of a strange story. Because what shanghai china has in common with. Logan utah is really not very much. Yeah but my mother had actually spoken to a professor of hers back in shanghai and she had gotten into to university so we came because like might. My mother was a graduate student. Here and got into universities one was utah state university in logan utah and the other was university of illinois in chicago and her professor said to her. Oh utah that is. The place to be your. In retrospect your leg. Chicago's way more like shanghai than utah. I think it's just a reminder of how much of our lives are determined by circumstances like that and so we ended up in utah and then we were in la and you know. My parents always worked for jobs just to make ends meet. And so i think so much of what shapes be early on. Were the struggles. Have my parents went through. I mean these things that people referred to as entitlements me. My mother depend on wake when she was pregnant with my sister here in the us we depend on food stamps stamp in. We depend on a medicaid in children's health insurance program and i went to public school all the way throughout including college. Those were not entitlements for us. Those were our lifeline. I can really relate to that so my parents moved to toledo ohio after shanghai as well and when we first arrived in ohio rolling. There's nobody here and just like snow on the ground. There's like nothing around. And i think just the impression of what america is back then is is is just so different and dissimilar to to your family. My mom worked many different jobs like she's worked as a grocer. She's worked at a karaoke bar at some point and so i can totally relate. And it's such a quintessential immigrant story for so many of us. Did your parents ever want you to be anything as you were growing up. It's a good question. It's hard to separate it at this point. Because i am one of those knowing people who always knew that i wanted to be a doctor and so i don't know whether it was something that could be influenced by my parents impossibly but they also knew that it was something that had wanted to do and so encouraged it and so it's kind of hard to tell i will say that i think a lot of immigrants may be able to relate to this too in the us we didn't have any connections. It's not as if we knew doctors right. And so i knew my pediatrician. But i wasn't exactly someone that you could just go to become a doctor in so it was actually really challenged him even in college. I didn't know how to be a doctor. I mean i just didn't have the networks of people who could tell me you need to be taking this m cap prep cores and you need to be volunteering at hospitals in how here's how you get a shadowing experience and These are the types of activities that you should be involved in an and i think that's what's made me want to be in medical education also because i think there are so many people who have that passion for medicine or for whatever other fueled before just never given the opportunity and it's one thing for us to talk about we should have programs to recruit underrepresented minorities and to encourage people who otherwise didn't know about different fields before but for so many people that there's just so much in that experience that's not at all we could imagine including the levels of loans that you have to go through in order to get educated so i think all that is an important component to.

The Bubble is Bursting for One Card

"If only i had started in two thousand eighteen. I'd be able to retire. I would have invested so much money into luke. Oh boy what. Four now luca. The silver prism the standard one. Those like those. Want from like two k and like february. Two eight k nine k. Now it's insane. What the hell. Hey how about this. I never knew cards. Went for this much money chris booker. The rookie was nine hundred. That silver prison nine hundred dollars all right. They traded for chris. Paul within two days they were selling for thirteen and fourteen hundred dollars. Wow well. la repeat that. I got to hear that again one more time. They were nine hundred bucks. When i checked nine hundred. No devon booker. Okay sorry okay. I heard desmond being in my brain out devon booker day traded for chris paul and within a couple of days those i saw him for thirteen and fourteen hundred in auctions. I mean that's how fast it really is like stocks. Now it's crazy. Yeah i mean. Stocks stocks are usually that good stocks are good but not that good but you could see people ran out there and it became supply-and-demand people. Were like book rookies. Because these are the next ones that are gonna fly up. I mean that's my understanding. I have somebody of done. Some research and have some had some conversations in recent weeks. My understanding is that if you're in the buying and selling business with cards and is very reactionary when it comes if a guy's name to an all star game or a guy. The team trades for big name player or the team. Their team gets hurt. Or whatever it's very reactionary and it's sort of i mean sometimes it's it's unpredictable from our standpoint. That's why i would say this. If you feel like you really know basketball. This is only tip. Give out daybreak. If you are thinking about getting into this. And i'm i'm not the guy as somebody that really knows about all of this stuff to to give you tips on where to look how to start all this kind of stuff because i'm not that guy Because i do get a lot of questions about that. Because we've mentioned on the show i would say this if you're gonna go into basketball and you're gonna buy basketball and you want to bank on somebody now because you think the cards are gonna go go do it. Now before this damn season start you've got about whatever two weeks because once the season starts it's exactly what you say of the night that guy drops fifty people go on there and try to start by rookie cards. Those jamal murray things went through the frigging roof at one thing. I think it's also important to have a frugal mindset when it comes to your finances earth when it comes to investing when it comes to investing in stocks or bitcoin are or even cards. I think it's important that you have enough of like disposable income like not like not like you don't need a ton necessarily like you do things that you enjoy and things that make you happy maybe start buying video games or whatever else it might be but you know you gotta have a cushion to support you in case things get real like jobs get lost especially right now during a pandemic investing a lot of money into something can be incredibly risky. Especially if it's all and one you know basket all in one player all in one stock or whatever you need to have a cushion to support yourself especially if you're somebody who you know is on the younger side and may not be living with your parents or whatever. I just think that's important to mention and what stocks as well you know sometimes being conservative and having stuff that builds long-term and grow don't for for i'm trust me i am. I am very much in the middle. But i think it's lawrence to offer conservative Advice for a lot of people who may not have A conservative mindset. But i'm by fall. I find myself in the middle.

Las Vegas Raiders face 'daunting task' with COVID-19 issues ahead of game vs. Kansas City Chiefs

"Kid city chiefs at eight point favorite leg. I said we'll get to that in a second on the road against the vegas raiders on this game. Fifty six and a half. We will have. John cheering on later. I'm sure he'll be able to explain whether slightly above the market pain. i have to believe. That's all covid related to be quite honest. The raiders defense in the contact tracing protocol. We're not quite sure. If i'm going to have to get called up to play safety and let me tell you my foot speed not enough to slow down tyreek hill and open spaces really wouldn't say i mean i might try and slew coming off the line. That'd be my only shot. so listen. I the raiders offensive game plan back in week five was good. Obviously but the halftime adjustments that. Paul guenther in the raiders. Defensively really is what i think won them the game. It's really what gave the chiefs offense trouble. You really hadn't seen that from the chiefs offense before during this. Patty mahomes like run especially against the defense of that caliber. You go back to week. Five in the second half. Kansas city was successful. Only twenty one percent of their snaps. One point to carry twenty eight percent success rate through their moms is pressured. A ton the raiders. Were able to do something in that game. They hadn't been able to do most of the season which is get pressure vegas. Twenty six on the season pass rush win rate and then obviously after a few good games. Recently where the raiders have been able to apply some pressure to quarterbacks. They've surged to an average defense in pressuring the week. Five game if you look at some of these numbers. Mahomes was pressured on forty. Seven percent of total dropbacks specifically from eleven personnel. Were kansas city. Essentially lives seventy three percent of the time moms pressured on fifty seven percent of those three wide sets. I would envision off the bye with the little extra motivation of not. Just losing to the raiders but but kansas city not being really happy about gruden and the gang taken victory laps around the the stadium there drivers using using the loudspeaker thereafter the week. Five win that Andy reid is probably gonna come with a pretty good game plan here and you know past the success that andy. Reid is hat off the bye. You mentioned this. The raiders are are probably going to be without a few key defenders but You know another handful of defensive players are going to miss practice all week due to this contact tracing. It's probably isn't the offense that you wanna face short handed in in pissed off and not having practiced to four. I would think. I also believe we'll probably see a little more play action for mandatory. You know patty mahomes in the chiefs past game will probably fair little bit. Better here with play action. Especially if if the pressure starts to barrel down. I would also think that it's worth mentioning that three chiefs offensive lineman or on the cova the list it's believed to be contact tracing but we'll have to see this certainly make this game a little bit different. If if all three of those offensive lineman are out. You also expect sammy. Watkins to return in this game us a full practice participant on wednesday so he should be a full ghost that they're gonna have their their complement of weapons out there. The number in this thing is is really interesting. But i think that this tougher makes a lot of sense. I i just don't see. Kansas city's offense not bouncing back here in a major way talk. i mean. They're playing with a chip on their shoulder. Which is always dangerous to begin with. We've seen their passing offense. That was more a work in progress. Probably the nicest way to put it early on in the season and no doubt that was by design. Get on track with mahomes during for more than eight hundred yards the last two games when you look at the way. Mahomes performed against the raiders. Fifteen total touchdowns just two interceptions one of them of course coming earlier this year the chiefs loss as a double digit home favor and i think it's pretty staggering to know what costs kansas city. That game is the fact that hey look. They finished a net negative minus sixty four in terms of rushing yards. The raiders held the ball for nearly eleven minutes longer and kansas city knows that they can hit the home runs. That are widely available. If they keep mahomes operate i think. The raiders passing defenses. You mention it may trending in the right direction. There's no doubt a lot of optimism out here around the raiders especially on the defensive side of the ball. This is a different beast that they're going to try and counter and with sammy watkins back amongst others. I just don't know where the raiders consistently find a way to get off the field. I agree with that. And i get it. You have to young corners in trayvon mullin in our net and people are thinking to themselves like. Hey we're trending in the right direction. We're starting to get some pressure. Would you look you play at the browns. The total is suppressed because of weather and wind. You're at the chargers. It's likely a a lost game. If two guys can hold onto football on the back corner fate and then the broncos last week and drew lock was clearly injured after taking a hit in the second quarter but you could have been trailing at halftime in that game so listen. I think the raiders are better than we all expected. You look at who they've lost to. It's it's the bills box and patriots. All pretty good teams obviously bucks in bills being very good patriots. You know with bill tough spot. There is well off the monday night game traveling across the country. So i get the by of the raiders. I just need to see more defensively to believe it's real and so that that's kind of where i'm out on that unit. I fully expect kansas city to do some good things here. Offensively

COVID-19 reinfection 'highly unlikely' for at least six months, Oxford study says

"New study finds that people may be protected against the virus for months even years but a warning. The study that i'm referencing here hasn't been peer reviewed just yet but it is the longest and most comprehensive done to date. It looks fairly solid to me. But you know i'm not really scientists. The study comes from the la hoya institute of immunology and took place over several months. It recruited one hundred and eighty five people ranging in age from nineteen to eighty one. These people have recovered from covid and most had mild symptoms not requiring hospitalization. Thirty eight of them donated blood samples over the time span of several months. Now before i go forward. Let's remind ourselves how our bodies fight infections. They have some immune cells. The first is a t. cell which kills other infected cells and be sounds that make more antibodies as needed. And of course the antibodies themselves. This study found that. Antibodies were fairly durable. They showed modest declines six to eight months after infection but the amount that was found in each of the volunteers was dramatically different. So it's hard to say about that. The t. cells on the other hand only showed slight decay in the be cells actually increased which researchers can't explain. And that might be if you're looking at this unbiased. Might be a reason for concern so as to keep an eye on that so big picture when people are infected again with the virus your immune system recognizes it and kills it. The good thing about covid is that it's very slow to start doing real damage so your immune system has plenty of time to catch up and produce these cells and antibodies which helps in providing long-term immunity. This potentially means that we will not have to vaccinate against this every single year. Like a flu shot. This could be a one and done scenario. Which would be amazing. Like i mentioned in another story cova dues mutating very slowly compared to the common cold which is actually another corona virus. This low mutation could be helping this theory and it could make vaccines much more. Effective story also brings up. Who had sars are still carrying immune cells and then outbreak was seventeen years ago. Sars had a death rate of ten percent pretty much across the board across all ages. Covert is still under about one percent overall depending on the country of course in the quality of medical care. Another thing from a previous show. If you'll remember a while ago. I mentioned that some south korean guy was the first confirmed reinfection of covid. Which seems like it might go against this story. Well maybe his immune system was just getting ready to kill it again when he tested positive but these researchers say that the amount of virus that people are exposed to also matters so if they didn't get a huge viral load they may not be able to produce the same amount of antibodies and immune cells however with vaccine that variables taken out. Everyone gets enough to produce the antibodies and immune cells that are required so again. This could be a game changer. And really good news especially for a

interview With Father Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries

"Hey everyone. Welcome to how. I built this resilience edition from npr on these episodes. We talk with entrepreneurs and change makers how they're meeting today's challenges with new strategies and ideas and today we're going to hear from father gregory boyle. He's the founder of homeboy industries. Father greg founded homeboy industries after years of serving as a jesuit priest and later as a pastor at dolores mission church in east. La forty saw the devastating effects of gang related violence on his community after operating for over thirty years. Homeboy industries has become one of the largest gang intervention rehabilitation and re entry programs in the world. About fifteen thousand folks year walk through our doors trying to reimagine their lives. We were begun in nineteen eight. Just end my paris. Which was the poorest in the city but had had the highest concentration of gang activity. We had eight gangs at war with each other and i started to bury kids. I buried my two hundred and eighty third last week. Not all from that community. Obviously but i know a lot of gang members. So i get asked and and so we just started. Things started to school than we started the jobs program trying to find felony friendly employers then that was not so forthcoming so we started businesses. A bakery was the first in ninety two and now we have nine social enterprises but also a program of healing you know. Sluggers tattoo removal. There's therapy case management classes. It's an amazing series of programs. And as you mentioned i mean things like tattoo removal or just helping people kind of reenter society after being gangs or being incarcerated obviously while it's changing many employers still reluctant to hire people with felony records and in response to that you create your own businesses aside from the bakery which is probably the best known because it has locations in los angeles tummy a little bit more about some of the other social enterprises that homeboy industries has launched so at our headquarters. We have homeboy bakery homegirl. Cafe and homeboy homegirl marchandise. And then we have the restaurant at the airport a city hall. We have homeboy diner. The only place to get food at city hall. We have a thing called homeboy grocery where we sell chips salsa and guacamole and a variety of grocery stores boy recycling which is recycling. You waste which quite an extensive of business and growing amboise silkscreen and embroidery. That's been around for twenty seven years. Lap boesky nine in there so That's a lot. that's a lot. I was telling you earlier before we went live that i saw you profile and sixty minutes in. I think in the late eighties early nineties and i grew up in in los angeles. You're such a legendary figure there. I'm you've been awarded the california peace prize. And i mean you're a priest at the end of the day like your priest you do. Mass obviously socially distant for people who are incarcerated. But you're also an entrepreneur. Did you consider yourself as an entrepreneur when you founded this organization. Do you think of yourself that way. Now why board would never sign on the notion that i know anything about business so i don't really see it that way but we're always responding if tattoos had become a an obstacle in gang members. One of them off. We started that even in terms of our businesses. They were kind of haphazard you. There was no business plan. There was an abandoned bakery across the street from our school. Our parochial school in a movie producer. Ray stark after the unrest in ninety two wanted to help and i said well okay. I don't know by this bakery. It has ovens they don't work. You could fix them. We could put hairnets on enemy rival gang members. Well that was the entirety of my business plan. So i think i think everything else kind of operated in the same way. There was a couple from the parish who wanted to start rodriguez silk screening. And i said well. Don't start homeboys screening in. So that's how that was born so you know it wasn't like go some big master plan and it was all kind of accidental. You know we have a thing called the global homeboy network. Which is you know. Three hundred programs in the country outside kind of modeled on methodology. You know they all want to start a social enterprise and they all want to do food. Which i always say don't but you know because food is hard. Yeah restaurants are really hard sex in us to a bakery cafe and it's hard to talk people out of this. But i was tell do silk screening. That's recession proof. Everybody wants a shirt their family reunion or they're five k. race. And they'll go with you even if it's more expensive because it's kind of the. Paul newman feel good. You know it's like yeah. It's cost more but it helps employees

RCEP: What's the Deal?

"Who has spent much time around. Soldiers will be aware that for the purposes of saving time and door baffling civilians. They communicate to a large extent in three letter acronyms. So an armored fighting vehicle is an a an improvised. Explosive device is an and a three letter. Acronym is itself a t. l. a. There are many more some formal some colloquial some veils for cheerful obscenity if journalists employed a similar vernacular one such t. La would certainly be bb. I to denote a story which is boring but important which brings us. And we think we've just about stuck the landing here to a four letter acronym asset and that seems to be the consensus on pronunciation which is going to catch up a few news. Readers or it could be are kept or chip or recap whichever way you say it. The letters stand for regional comprehensive economic partnership. Stop come back at cetera. Sip is a trade deal all seriously this will only take a few minutes also is a mighty big trade deal indeed arguably the biggest ever don. It includes japan. South korea new zealand and the ten members of asean from tiny brunei to immense indonesia at which the unwieldy asset name does make a certain amount of sense comprehensive regional asian partnership being an obvious non runner. This will seem hilarious in about ten seconds. You'll get that. There is a lot going on with all set as is to be expected from any agreement which fifteen countries many of whom don't get terrifically will have been nearly a decade negotiating but it will be significant given that the signatories of set between them account for nearly a third of global gdp. Some oftens have already estimated. That are sept. Could add two hundred billion dollars to the global economy this decade which given how much of this decade is likely to be spent catching up from this year is no small change. The economic headlines are approximately as follows. Many tariffs on imports. Among member states will be eliminated. Some immediately of his more gradually they will be new unified rules of origin which might encourage companies in asset nations to build more of their supply chains with each other and hopefully do lots of what all free trade agreements is supposed to increase production and opportunity reduced prices on bureaucracy and contribute to a climate of cooperation as opposed to competition which is where our sep looks almost as significant diplomatically. As it does economically it is the first time that china has signed up to a multilateral. Free trade deal. China's premier li ka chiang himself an economist by trade has indeed hailed it as a great victory for multi-lateralism and free trade. Fine talk it may be muttered for the second ranked member of the politburo standing committee of the central political bureau of the communist party of china. And it's at least worth wondering. Is this really where china sees the real value of asset because just as notable is who is in our set is who isn't specifically india and the united states india pulled of the talks last year for fear that eliminating tariffs would threaten indian manufacturers and producers however as the leaders have stressed that the door remains open the us flounced from a different asia pacific trade arrangement in two thousand seventeen. I'm going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the trans-pacific partnership a potential disaster for our country. The trans-pacific partnership was one of the first victims of a donald trump tantrum. So there is little doubt about which of assets members will be the dominant partner but it does appear to have been the middle powers of that drove the deal possibly recognizing that it would be preferable for all of them to have china japan and south korea coming to terms rather than blows an optimist a class of pundit who is having a testing kind of you might suggest that this also indicates that china recognizes that submitting to rules-based trade is the next step in its journey to modernity and that it cannot prosper in the long term purely by bullying and menacing a pessimist. Might that this is exactly what china proposes to use this new block for that asset is a means for to keep its friends close and its enemies closer and whether or not that quote is correctly attributable to sun.

Phoenix Suns complete trade to acquire Chris Paul from Oklahoma City Thunder

"Right welcome back. Look who's here perk with us Stephen i'm going to start with you on this one. If the nets do get hardened do they need to win the title. This season having this type of talent downright without question. And i'm gonna tell you why because the pressure is going to be immense first of all your k. d. Obviously everybody's looking at you comparing you to lebron and stuff like that Lebron goes and he assembles a big three. Then ultimately you want up to him and went to golden state and gave the ultimate big three. Lebron sits up de a d. is now in. La so you go to brooklyn you got kyri and then you get a james heart so the pressure will be immense on him. This guy read because of all the things that max has titillated throughout the years and to a lesser degree kendrick perkins when you talk about the lack of leadership there kyri urban may have shown from time to time. He elected to leave cleveland. The go to boston. The situation in boston didn't work out. He goes to brooklyn the only place. Twenty games helped was an issue and all of that stuff plus. He made some headlines. That's an issue. And then you've got james hearted remember. James harden didn't want the white how houston Ultimately he didn't want chris paul in houston and then obviously even though again and kendrick perkins knows this far better than me because he has those relationships with these guys. In particular russell westbrook russell westbrook made sure to reiterate to me. Listen his relationship. With james harden is as is big tom their brothers and they're gonna always be brothers. We did not talk about basketball. Just a relationship that he has with james harden which also articulated over social media. I by the way his relationship with james harden they are brothers and they are tight but that doesn't mean they want to play together so as a result of that rests with westbrook is planning on moving on as a result of him. Moving on james harden is moving on. And so there's going to be some pressure to bear because with all of this money that harden and k. d. and career getting paid along with the expectations. Let's bring in the last element you in brooklyn. New york utah. You're even denver. You're in the mecca the media capital. Now obviously the knicks are in new york city madison square. Got it but we should all be allergic to mentioning championship protection at a new york. Nixon brett at least at this moment atop the faith man leon roads and we'll worldwide west but the bottom line is is blasphemous sacrilegious to talk championships. And and the knicks but brooklyn fall weighs less than ten miles is less than ten miles away. It's still a part of brooklyn one of the five boroughs and there is going to be are meant pressure on manse. If the three of them larry know why go give it their. Kp might be right about this guy at five in milwaukee we might see silly. Do some things we know. Lebron is at whatever but if those three assemble no one is going to be interested in any stupendous as to why they did not win after three guys. You damn right. They need to win the chip because the world the world will be watching. First of all brooklyn is even thirstier for a championship. And i think is a bigger deal than a team winning in manhattan in the sense that brooklyn hasn't had a championship in sixty five years. Since the dodgers left brooklyn in fifty seven but they want and fifty five to go to air like that. But the knicks. You're right it's been almost forty eight years for the knicks but brooklyn is the nets or the team in new york. The knicks don't even exist compared to the nets right now and let me say this. There is immense pressure for them. To win you're right stephen while they're together i'm here saying it doesn't need to be in the first year for example if hardened goes to brooklyn and they lose in the finals and a tough series to the lakers. A team like that. It's all right but they have to win while they're together. Even this year's lakers team. I didn't pick them because it's hard to just throw a team together with guys have been played together. Get all the complimentary pieces right. Get it all right to go all the way. We saw that with lebron and his return to. Cleveland went to a game six of course they had injuries on that team. But that's part of it is coming off the catastrophic injury and we saw it again a result before that when lebron showed up miami with the big three it some it takes some times a year to get it right with guys playing together so i would say while there's enormous pressure for them to win while they're together because k. d. if he's most of themselves even is an mvp caliber player so is hardened and kyri may not be an mvp but he's more than just an all star he's all star plus you have to. Mvp caliber players an all star. And then some you're supposed to win a championship to gather. I don't think it has to be in the first year. And i wouldn't say that it's the kind of pressure for example when katie went to golden state. It's like there was more downside. Like guys you have to win it. If you don't win a championship that sorry i wouldn't. I don't think people will be looking at this team like that. Sorry if you don't wanna chip you gotta get outta the east

NBA Draft Rumor Mill

"Two thousand and twenty. Nba draft rumors whether those trade rumors talking about where we're hearing particular players going. We've talked about all the big names already. We've talked about hard and we talked about chris. Paul we've talked about dennis schroder. We've talked about russell westbrook. We talked about minnesota. We talked about golden state. We talked about charlotte. The bulls are sitting there at four. And it's been really interesting. Dinnie obvious name's been floated about. I've heard from multiple sources that that is sheer speculation because of their general manager. Who's an international guy. And what he did in. Denver has nothing to actually do connected with this pick. La bella ball could be there for chicago. Which would be very interesting in the back court that they currently have there. And i've heard a lot of therese albert. I'm here as well as a culture guy and one of the big things that chicago is focusing on his culture right. Now who do you see taking at ford. They have a guy. I applaud the bulls because they have really done a good job of not telegraphing. What they're doing you know they've been connected to a lot of these guys. They've done an above average job. Relative to when teams are leaky of keeping this close to the best And so it's who they end up with. I think if ball is there he makes tons of sense. That's a nice fit with you guys have and the need for a passer and the fact that there are other scorers on the roster where he's not gonna act like be the only guy who's creating anything that's a pretty nice fit so we'll see if he's there we dug into lamelo earlier so i'm not gonna harp on that fit but let's say he's not there and i think allah is a real option. I agree that some of it is the speculation but he does kinda fit their roster as well and i've heard again obi topping. Who's come up for them. A anthony grants Coach dayton was on billy donovan staff previously thunder. So they're obviously going to be well informed about top into. There's some thought that billy donovan can have some input on what they do here. But it's hard to know exactly what his type of player is is. In oklahoma city you had prestige san prestige Decisions with burst now. So how burton has come up another dark horse. I think for that spot. And i'm still not entirely sure what to make of this but it's patrick williams who i know there's at least some degree real interest there. Would they take him at four. It wouldn't be like totally crazy. At this point. It would be high for him. But i mean maybe that's their secret. They have their sleeve It's really tough for me to predict too but right now my guess would be that if there is no ball. I still lean audio. But i don't think it's like a foregone conclusion. I think people are trying to figure chicago right now. Let's talk about patrick williams because it seems to be a foregone conclusion that everybody thinks detroit's taking him it's of and so now the question is will even be there at seven which you know a few weeks ago probably would have been seen as madness. But i've heard talk that. Atlanta is interested in him. I've heard talk. That cleveland is now interested in him. The most of the talking. Cleveland centers around obi top in and dinnie omnia there. And now you're mentioning chicago at four with patrick williams heck widen on the warriors taking to. Is you know patrick williams is. This is the next upside guy right like after you talk about ball edwards and weisman. I think mini scouts see him the next guy he only averaged nine points a game at florida state but that he has this big big ceiling right that he could that he could fit into as a team. Just as a prospect. Is it possible. He's getting over hyped at this point. Do you really see him. As a player that has the next highest ceiling in this draft after ball edwards. In wiseman i have to admit like. I'm not all the way there with him. I have had him graded as a lottery. Guy for a long time towards the end the college season i was like that guy is gonna go ten to twelve. And that's where i had him now. Yeah i didn't expect this type of leap. I guess we might have predicted it because team sent to be a little bit predictable this time of year. You know the the upside guy always the guy. It's without quite john right now but yeah. I think he's very much an idea. And it's worth re-emphasizing that you know. His his body obviously is really promising in terms of how it will hold up defensively. He's going to be versatile. On that end he will have to get a little bit more agile laterally but his is. The value so young is really helpful. Obviously a big factor. You know being the youngest college player in this draft so between that and then you see flashes were really had a pull up jumper. He's did pretty well from the line. I think there's a pretty good chance. He's an above average three point shooter in now you're talking about well. Hey maybe this is a floor spacing combo forward. You can check out. He'll buck shots. He will play good team. Defense and be switchable. That's a pretty in this draft especially when we're like how do we find like even just like a high level player that case is pretty egypt's let's let's say we take that case for. I mean that's a pretty comparable high and dry or if not better. So i see it what i do it at four. I don't know but i understand why this is happening. And i think there teams that you might wanna come up and get him. And that's probably what the pushing them up. The board as well wants wants everybody found out. Detroit was the floor. Change the conversation. It really does. and there. Is this weird psychological dynamic in the draft. That i love it every year. You know jeremy because this thing takes hold oh you like him at seven now. Maybe we at six like there. Is this conversation that starts to happen with these with these boards. And so you know there's so much data and there's so much scouting that's put into this. But the psychology of the draft is the most fascinating fascinating

Machines as kin or the new colonisers? Indigenous tech revolutionaries rethinking A.I

"Consider the machines. We make the robots we build the artificial intelligences the way programming. They're all designed to serve us rush. We have dominion over them. Not over us will follow a woman and technologists. Angie la believes this way of thinking about machines. It's like a computer bug in the program of western civilization and it's been programmed into all manner of things when we think about the different types of some call aji or agriculture or and then when we think about humans we can also refer slavery this the million over protocol comes from this understanding that men not women or not animal but man sits on top of all things in has priority over all manner of things within our world be and so what happens then is that we've got serious problems that are evolving within west and technologies. Mike technologies much critical technologies and cyber. Come out of the wool machine and so when we think about the origins of most of western technology. It's really problematic. The bias that we're finding in these systems. It's not a bug feature right. it's a feature white supremacy right. it's a feature of a worldview that understands the world and the people in in a particular way and so it. It shouldn't be a surprise to anybody that we're running into these problems and also why we keep running into them and we're gonna keep running into them. As long as we keep designing out of the same mindset which is a nicer mindset jason lewis as director of the initiative for indigenous futures and koterec's. What's called the aboriginal territories in cyberspace research network. He's professor in design and computation arts at concordia university in montreal. He's hawaiian and samoan but grew up in california. After he was adopted at six months. Old angie abdulah is found 'em boss woman of an indigenous consultancy called old ways new and on science fiction. I join you may natasha mitchell. For nine quakes. Celebration of aboriginal and torres strait islander. Culture always was always will be is the thing this year recognizing that first nations people have occupied and cared for these straddling continent for over sixty five thousand years. But jason angie want to extend that thinking to digital continents. Dj land as well and ask. How could the future of artificial intelligence look different. If more indigenous people are in the driver's seat what happens. If we actually consciously tried to take indigenous worldviews and use that as a starting point for building the systems thinking hard about how the technology we use as they're being constructed you know come out of a very particular sort of philosophical lineage. You know that sort of like kind of post enlightenment. Scientific revolution sort of like this emphasis on parasitism post cartesian of like you know the world is dividing these two to the physical world and then the spiritual world and they don't actually really needs you know all these things actually kind of inspect our assumptions about what technology is and what it could be. So what happens when you sort of take a different worldview rice or what happens if you take saying. Indigenous worldview a hawaiian worldview mohawk view. That doesn't have that clinton's duality right. That thinks about things in terms of their relationship to each other including if not in some ways privileging the non human right because that's also part of that intellectual lineage. Ride is the no man literally man not human. Man is the heightened center accretion that everything is sort of judged a comparison to him and also. He's only person really. Were talking to. But that's not the indigenous. Fosse's that i know of you know where there's the sense of relation even not only my in relationships are all other humans around the and i need to sort of be responsible to that and be reciprocal with that. But i'm also relationship with the non humans and i've been relationship with from the from the western context. We call things. So how does that change your approach to designing technology to extend this idea. You and colleagues explored the idea of making keen with machines. This idea that we have kinship relationships with non human entities like machines like artificial intelligences like robots. I mean tell us more about that because it it's one thing to incorporate a bird or a river or a tree or like haitian into your idea of kinship. Wouldn't miss shane bay. In a different category altogether. The machines are part of the natural world right so one of inheritances from this western monotheistic way of looking at things. Is this idea that there is something that is artificial in the world right. But they're made out of minerals in things drawn from the earth. It's just that we've crafted them in a particular way but they didn't come from some other real. They're not not part of the natural environment. And so i think that for me. That inside is one of the key insights. Okay we're creating this category which is really about separating ourselves from the things that we make out of this desire to use them and use them as we will and not have to worry or think about them and harrison to be provocative. Save them if we're talking about strong artificial intelligences that idea that artificial intelligence might one die possess will be designed to have consciousness. Then right we will necessarily be enslaving them. So yeah. what do you do when you've created a conscious being and if your mindset all along has been this is a tool. This is a tool the tool. I made it. I get to control it. Then you're going to run into some real problems right and we we already know. Western science has been used over and over again to justify labeling other people as non human. That's part of how the colonization of the americas and the pacific happened right. that's part of the justification is that they're not really human so we don't really have to worry about them. It's part of how then slave limit of say. Black people in the new world was justified. Because they're not really human so we can treat them however we like so we've already laid down a template. Many templates of you know making these judgments about what is worthy of our relationship is worthy of being in some kind of conversation with and there's a danger that will replay that template again with these machines.

La Niña likely for this fall, winter season

"And now that we're just past the halfway point in the fall of 2020. We wanted to see what's behind the wild swings from stormy two beautiful from cold to hot to. Ah, hurricane season that just wouldn't stop. Wildfires, tornadoes and much, much more. And it appears the big factor is a weather pattern called La Nina. But what is Let Nina why does that determine the kind of whether we get And what will it mean to all of us up north and down south as we approach the winter of 2021. For that. Let's talk to a weather expert. Joining us now is Paul Pastor Lock, senior meteorologist and head of the Long range Forecasting department at AccuWeather. Paul. What is La Nina Nina is the cooling of the central eastern equatorial Pacific waters. It changes the overall up a little patterns across the Pacific and actually globally. But it usually initiates a stronger northern jet stream storm track, and when we see La Nina, we can get faster, moving stronger systems that effect northern areas of the United States. And the Southern areas tend to kind of ease back a little bit. So you tend to get some colder shots in the north, and it stays warmer and drier in the south. And so we're expecting a lot, Nina this fall season this fall into winter. Yes, and it's already Starting up and it's also La Nina could be very favorable for named tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin. And so that's a sign that we've already seen 20 named storms that La Nina is coming in full blast. I see and Paul what causes this? Is it just nature taking shape or what? The globe. Those three cycles, warming and cooling of the equatorial, the loss of energy out of the waters. You know, this up and down kind of balancing act goes on and you get these wings to take place from back and forth between El Nino and La Nina. So it's a cycle that goes through sometimes that we have to wonder. And there's other tell connections that can affect whether we go into La Nina or El

How Mythical Entertainment First Married Advertising and YouTube

"First real lesson that we learned beyond those That i think is sort of the operating principle that got us off the ground as a business is. We had to find the intersection or the nexus. If you wanna use a word like that of our ability and our opportunity yeah. I mean we we. We don't need to rehash how we got from point. A. to point b. to point c. from being engineers to working for crew and then working hosting a television show called online nation. We shared all of that in episode one of our lost years series. You can go back and watch that wanna know how to how we got from point. A. to point b. to point c. But if point see is we were hosting this show online nation and it got cancelled and we were flying out to la to shoot it and then we find ourselves back in our little basement where we were making videos back at square one making videos again but we had no no income anymore. We just had the money that we made off of that show and we were living of that while we figured out what it was we were going to do. We had to develop an entirely new business plan and there was no important to note. No one was making money on youtube directly. There was no youtube partner programs. So you couldn't just make a video and nc money role in so really. There was no such thing as a professional youtuber. So it's a really interesting idea that we were like we're going to have a career because we were like. Let's make this youtube thing fulltime. Thank but yet no one was making it a career but again we were like what two things exist here. We know that we can write a funny song. We can make a funny music video. We'd had success with that. The facebook song had gone really big and the second piece of the puzzle was is we knew that there were businesses out there who wanted people to know about them. So as like okay. Can we put those two things together. Can we put our ability to write a funny song with a company that wants to advertise and put that on youtube and it was really just an open question at the time and there weren't a lot of big companies that were sponsoring videos. I think there was some of that. It's not like we came up with the idea out of absolutely nothing out of thin air but they're they're definitely they're definitely weren't big companies invest a lot of money in this platform where no one understood youtube or digital video that well but it. It seemed like our best play because the thing that we wanted to make is the thing that we could also sell or at least sell ad space in and we thought we could do a good job of making it an an an integration so that it made sense that the ad was part of it. It wasn't like a lot of videos today where you could you know. You'll be blogging or doing whatever you're doing in your video and then you could insert an ad in the middle and people would understand. And here's a coupon code and nears you know here's what here's to him. Sponsor is kind of thing so we wanted to do something that was. That was thoughtful that we can be proud of but also make money and feed our kids because we already had kids at the time that if you want if you want to really be driven to succeed at business have children have children. I have children i. They tend to be hungry and demanding. And you come home to. And you're like man i gotta get after it.

"Curious how you do that because i've really made it my business to curate my circle and keep people around me who do have the same ambition. Shen and it's like taken a lot of effort to do so because like you said like the numbers don't necessarily add up and listen. The other thing i want to say is that people have different types of ambition and their ambition plays out in different ways to right so like i mean i have people who are very ambitious in a different way than people who are very greedy right hate people who are shady if it's unchecked continue into like you said being greedy or you know insensitive well. There's downs announced there is i'm bishen unhealthy ambitious. Yes is very damaging and it can come out into a toxic way and then you'll be getting advice of people that you would never take right because it's like nah. I i rock like that like i'm not i'm not going to go that route so i've had to be very clear to about like how my ambition manifests in different ways as than other people right because for instance like so i would say that like the previous manager i had they were also very ambitious and so i felt like that's where we connect to the next and we could see i hi you were actually going to make some phone calls on your behalf. Not just wait for the phone to ring. Will that is what i understood to happen.

Get into situations and it could fuck up your happiness because you don't know who's been real. Who's fake you ever listen to at least when you're working on five or some shit like i might. I'm going to say that it's like when you like when you're living a life of the family you grow up. You know what i'm saying like how you do that style of living. It's like you know who's real. Who's fake and shit. You know like you you throw yourself. The right people surround myself with the right people though yeah i mean your team does seem pretty good. That'd be great people yeah yeah.

I was questioning what i wanted to do but what really made me leave was coming up with an idea that i felt really passionate about and that became the newsworthy and what started that was hearing from so many different people that they were tuning tuning out altogether because they felt depressed or overwhelmed by there was so much going on. There's so many arguing pundits. There's seems to be no hope. Everything is tragic. <hes> and they're kind of forward that i always heard from people. It was depressing. News is depressing overwhelming time consuming and biased biased and i really felt like you know what i can create a version of news that helps fix those problems by being what i call fast fair and fun. When i got that idea i started researching it. I ran a little survey. I looked into it. I took some business classes online while still keeping my job and then as i became much more passionate about it and i got good feedback about the idea <hes> i became more excited about it to the point where i was like.

"To the the data yeah that we're working with and it's really not I mean it's a way that human beings as we've learned so much from from psychology studies. It's an it's a natural fundamental. I think comfortable way to think is to look at things <hes> kind of on a spectrum or no not on a spectrum factor Mr Look at things as if it's like either or it's hard work right it requires some neuropsychological actually also requires having the data the correct data that will be your priors because a lot of people were a biased and start with incorrect priors don't they oh yeah I mean they yeah I mean because these confirmation bias right like you as well as just narratives having -cerned believing in certain narratives that the data and then what happens is you have that narrative <hes> you've who've experienced anecdote and so you say here. I'll pick one for my own. Life creates drivers or the literal worst right I live in L._A.. I apologize drive a Prius. I have a lot of crunchy dry. Freezes pry pre pre Preah <hes> presses so but what ends up happening is you're like all prehistoric of the worst because you get cut off by a Prius driver because there's one in your neighborhood who liked drives fourteen miles an hour and you're stuck behind them every time you're trying to get to your house after a long day of work and then you just start noticing that every time you're getting pissed at a driver it happens to be a Prius and really that's confirmation bias. It's because you have a heightened interest in the practices. S.'s you notice that more often you consider the hits and not the misses you know all of those things that the movie Pie so beautifully illustrated but that's confirmation bias and and it's it's natural. It's what we all do. It actually takes a lot of work to realize we're falling victim to these two this confirmation bias it's sort of I'd say one of the dominant cognitive bias that we fall victim to and we we have to be really careful not to but it's not easy to fall into it very readily. You're saying so many really interesting things and I know that I can have a really really unique great conversation you because you're you live. Both these worlds that I also interested You're saying so many really interesting things and I know that I can have a really really unique great conversation you because you're you live. Both these worlds that I also interested in social justice well as truth and so I know we can have these open conversations so I absolutely we need to be careful what I struggle with how do we like take these priors into account and at the same time I want to reduce my own bias to discriminate like I don't WanNa treat maybe believe all men but I also don't want to like not believe all Serb. Leave all women but I don't want to knock believe all men either like I wanna like treat individuals as individuals and not like generalize an individual to maybe a stereotype or even like the prior of a group so I struggle with like wanting to have have that level of nuance. I was wondering if you if you think there's a good way of striking that balance. I think you have to strike a balance.

It's not that big of a deal truth creepy. He has interesting. There's a creepy that way super yeah. It's an interesting thing somebody asked me talking to people about love and they were asked me to define love like what do you mean. You're in love like when you say you're in love with somebody in a relationship. What does that mean? How do you define it? What does that mean? And how long is it GonNa last. If you ever try to define it. It's a tough thing to define this direction. That's deep there's possession. We are possessive over somebody because that's your Mama Bear. That's your but love is a hard thing to kind of. What's the motivation behind you in a relationship with somebody that you really love them? You guys are obsessed with each other. Love a lot of people yeah. The question is when you say you're in love with somebody. What is if you were to really dissect that? What's that really fucking mean? You know that'd be tough. It'd be tough to define sometimes. Maybe it's best not divide it right so I was thinking about this. The other day like scientists like to reduce shit. There are different ways they break it down and sometimes breaking it down takes the magic out life so let me give you a classic example. I Love Dogs. I love dogs had dogs my whole life. Somebody I heard a scientist there was this article about how dogs are saunters scavengers and pack animals and when they're really friendly with you and they wag their tail that might be how they've evolved to get you to give them food and take care of them if you look at a dog as a self serving animal. That's manipulating you that way. You're not gonNA love dogs the same way when you look at a dog that's just a fucking beautiful creature that makes you smile all that runs after a ball that kids hug and cry when it dies. That's that's that is a truth the like your deep love for your dog which I have is is just as true as what the scientist is describing as why the dog like blown. I'm not that interested in in your definition of a dog. That's not how I look at my dog. It is but that science may not be relevant to me emotionally and it doesn't make my life better actually your understanding..
