Invasive Species Meltdowns
"The invasive species that make that career. Yeah and I'm happy to heavy on to kind of couch. A lot of our previous discussions into this big umbrella that is invasive species because it's hot button issue, it conjures up a lot of opinions a lot of very strong opinions oftentimes for people that don't have any connection to. Really going on ecologically. So I think this is something that is really worth having a nice conversation about in a bigger context. Being. A Professional Brown. Of Natural Resources Management for the past like more than ten years, which is absolutely nuts right I mean but. You'll same way to I've known you for like six years now. Seeing how much the forest is changed in? Eastern Appalachian area over the past ten years with the basis species and like the ecological repercussions of them has been. Fascinating and slightly terrifying at the same time and. It's just I. Think we're right on the cost of like the tip of the iceberg where this is going to be our new climate change equivalent. In terms of. The scale of things that are happening, and that's a really important thing to kind of talk about his you know one or two invasive species can be very regional, very specific to wherever you're located. But when you think about the impact, they're having across the globe I mean this is comparable in terms of climate change to the scale of ecosystem disruption that could possibly happen and is happy. Again I'm like I'm very regionally specific being foot muster my career Mayes -cation is from Pennsylvania and West Virginia. In the mid Atlantic area and it's just been there. There's been so much change here but places all around the world are suffering from invasive species I spent some time in California not as a naturalist but enjoying nature on my off time from my corporate job. And the invasive species in California remind me a lot of the mid Atlantic region. It's just it's always seasonal new swath of ecological damage on the same scale. Yeah. An again being regionally specific it's not bad. That's how you have to kind of approach these things you have to be sort of a hometown hero because there's no way to globally say, I'm gonNA tackle the invasive species issue and even with a single invasive species how it behaves in one area isn't going to be. The same in another area you know I always hear people right in. This is an invasive in my yard. Why are you talking about I'm like well, you don't live where it's acting like an invasive. That's why. Yeah, it's been This hometown hero concept has really been like kind of hitting the nail on the head with me lately because. For so many years going to the school for forestry and. Policy Entomology. It's almost like we learned the species are in this category of invasive or exotic unlike we kind of learn this label with them. Then, we didn't do anything because it was almost like you just like doesn't masive. That's how it is unlike arms US role, and now I'm like, no, I really need to be more like a hometown hero and if I see a tree hang on like a dog walk, I need to rip it out instead of just being like. I'm not saying like everybody's guilty of this bill I'm surprised that it took me. So long to realize like I'm an invasive species specialist in I've been like on a certain level ignoring their I guess prowess. In really is going to be one of those like. Grassroots efforts to control invasive species. On a professional level because Regis label them as what they are. Let Them Go. Yeah and I. Think. There's a lot of there's a range of opinions on that in terms of where do you it's kind of like asking what he'll do you WanNa die today. But I I agree a lot of times. You just Kinda hear about this you learn sort of the theory and some of the data the to support said theory on invasions, but in terms of actionable items. Yep, it is something. That, I, think we all need to grapple with in a big way in the coming years but let's start with definitions because this is I think the shakiest ground for most people is this idea of what does it mean to be an invasive species in a lot of times? People will say it's a species from another of the world. Sometimes, it can be a native species that's just for some reason or another. Gone Haywire. So where do we land on our definition of an invasive species? I define it is it's mostly exotic, right so these exotic species are brought into a new landscape where they don't have ecological controls and want those controls could be are things like predators pathogens right? We're all volved where we are supposed to be. Stationed planted but there are native examples I can think of obviously not as common as the exotic examples, but one that comes to mind. A forester but few are out black locust in also like straight maple things like that. Like when you alter the forest soon is usually human activity. When we alter the forest, we provide an ecosystem where it's not a balance and native species can kind of take over this new real estate, which normally may be confined to just like stream banks or small openings in the forest for one tree falls. But instead only come in and do a full. You know very large shelter

How to 10x Conversions on Your Order Form
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today or go to talk about how to ten x conversions on your order form. So what do we mean by order for him first and foremost Neil order form sting bite your checkout process whether you're selling ecommerce products or even assassin description it doesn't matter what you're selling your order form isn't where someone Azam's their car or picks a plan if you're in software it's more. So they're on the page where they're putting in their credit card details that paid they're clicking charge me or start my free trial or that page when they're cooking on complete order a complete checkout whatever it may be that's. What we mean by order form. So the first recommendation I have for you, I had a guy on the podcast last week. His name is guy has is his guy. He runs a company called Intel Mayes and he was just telling me across his platform, their personalization platform. They do a lot more than that but overall forty, six percent lift in conversions and what they do. For example, let's say you're trying to buy a dress and Yulon order form. So for example, let's Neil. Nine both women. All right. Maybe I'm Chinese and they think I like red dresses or whatever I just making things up right now but the keeping this at your persona and they'll be like, hey, that. Just looks really good on you or maybe that just looks beautiful on your right little language like that I'm making it super simple right now but they can hyper optimized for each person. The key takeaway here's you need US televised. That's an extreme example where if you have a lot of money you spend on that but if you're able to personalise on the order form, you are able to lift conversions even a little bit. I'm just giving an extreme example and then the other thing you can do all the little small tweaks from testimonials to having logos to testing the copy like start my free trial or anything benefit based like if I sell a premium version uber suggests. I. May End up trying out call to actions I get started or more. So related to the product like grow my traffic or boost my rankings, things like that. So little tweaks what you'll end up finding as they can really drastically make a big difference in your conversions if you add them up and those on the free trial badges, money back guarantee badges if you add a lot of them up and you can check out just look at the big companies that have checkout pages or order forms look at some of the things that they include you get ideas from there. You can also get a lot of ideas from conversion accelerate the excel dot com as well as conversion rate experts. And one other thing you can do, you can use a tool like often monster you can put an exit pop up on the order form page. So if they're about to abandoned while you might as well try to pick that abandoned up because they're about to leave. So simple enough to do one key thing is I think with a lot of pages you start to see a lot of bloat on one sites 'cause you're listening. To this podcast, we're always talking about new tools and a lot of these tools require you to add pixels of the site but that bogs down you want to make sure your checkout page is not bogging people down as if it's really slow as bad experience for people, they are gonNA leave just because you have all the bells and whistles it's good for you but not necessarily good for conversions at the end of the day. And look at your competitor is the ones that are also begging that'll give ideas of what's working for them on their order foams. Well, yeah. Just to go a little deeper on the conversion xl recommendation for Neil. So they actually have a lot of examples of order

"The first real crack for you in the way that this was playing professionally, you were having the conflict. Sort of internally about what was going on with the Republican Party and had to find yourself in it. But where it becomes a break with your colleagues in an active way seems to be a when you voted for the extension and expansion of the climate laws in California. And America's the only country on earth really where climate is as a partisan divide as it is here. Does. It surprise you that that vote and you were one of seven Republicans who voted for it in the assembly that became such a big issue while it really was it was for a number of different reasons because one cap and trade in and of itself was a Republican idea. In fact that Reagan had done it on both bushes had done it and it was the idea of using the market versus command and control the market using free enterprise ideas of free enterprise and choice versus a government mandate and saying you must So those were supposed to be Republican principles and we had actually done that. The law that was on the books was going to tell businesses how they had to comply and what we did is we said, okay, we're GONNA go back to the system we had before I would cap and trade and say, okay businesses you get to make decisions on how you're going to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions and so when presenting that to the board of directors they didn't like that in fact, some of the conversations that they had as you know Chad. Because you did this, you took money away from the ability for us to be able to raise money into party coffers and I was just so I'm looking for the right word what ended up coming out of it with some level. There was some level of bitterness because I couldn't understand why a party that said they believed in these market principles and they believed in using those principles to try to make people's lives better that when we did that, they said Nope, we don't want you. In fact that we're going to sanction you and a we're going to suggest that you are no longer than the Assembly Republican leader. Any longer I thought we were about..

"So mookie betts last. Night Raby. Three homers Ford does in a game for the sixth time in his career Johnny. Sammy Sosa the only other players do that and movie didn't in a thousand fewer games basically in Mayes and fifteen hundred fewer than So when you look our call you red sox fan but you grew up there for goodness sakes and you see mookie bats, the red sox traded away it off to a start like this and avenue another three homer game. What do you think? Well I. Think it happens on the same day that the red sox give up seventeen runs and look at a single late in the Celtics and Bruins I think both lost and the Patriots are going to start a season without Tom Brady I think this is I think this is a reminder of the come up in Boston sports fans are are about to have to deal with and the next few years now I mean look it's It's a tough pill to swallow for red SOx nation to know that.

Whatever he does he does to a level that few others can do it. So the three six times you know that's the same guy that has four. That's the same guy that bowls three hundred games. He does those things and and there'll be no surprise. You know when he wins more world series wins MVP's that's that guy he's the guy we all grew up with he's just doing it at the highest athletic level.
Breathe Again: From Miasmatic Disease To Modern Day Misconceptions
"Hopefully, you've already heard that we lost a documentary recently, it is just taking off all over the Internet and the name of the documentary is called mask facts science in history of mask in medicine, and as you know right now we are dealing with A. Nationwide and worldwide pandemic, and we're looking for solutions and we're looking for things that have real efficacy to protect our citizens and to also maintain a level of health into to to create a system where we don't go through this again, that's what it really is at the end of the day because in truth the next viruses coming, you know Kobe twenty over. Twenty, one just like the flu virus you know these viruses mutate as we're GonNa talk about today, and we'll be dealing with more infectious diseases in the future. This is how life works, and so we went to look at what are some real clinically proven real world solutions to keep our citizens healthy and so we lost this documentary again, just skyrocket is over. Half, a million views already this week and has been a few days but something happened. Something happened I'm going to share with you a little bit later in the show but as of now, you check out the full documentary at the Model Hill show dot com for slash mask facts as I mentioned today, we're GonNa go on an adventure. We're going to go through some of the data that was in the documentary, but also ribbon dig a little deeper would expand on some things we're GonNa have a good time. And really, we want look at the beginning of this utilization of mask in medicine where the start and I think it's important to in that humans have been wearing masks for forever I for thousands of years whether it's for ritual whether it's for celebration also wore that's a time that different types of masks have been used but the specific use of masks in medicine actually started around sixteen hundreds when physician Charles de created the earliest versions of a has met suit. At this time he was looking at how can we protect the physician Dat was dealing with we're talking about this time of like the black plague, right the deal with plagues it was called a plague doctor. So a featured a waxed overcoat a lengthy Cain to examine people. Can you imagine somebody examining you am cocaine you with a cane from like six feet away? How disrespectful? So they had a cane also, there was this menacing eat mask that was part of this particular has met with this form of protection. and. The interesting thing is that this mask had very different purpose than you might suspect. Because at the time physicians all over believed in something called the Maya's matic theory of disease. And basically, the miasma theory of disease means the disease is passed from person to person or from the environment to person through the inhalation of quote. Bad Air. is coming from the environment, not necessarily prisoner person, but coming from the environment in inhaling bad air was the primary cause of disease. All right. Now, the mask was not necessarily used to prevent the physician from inhaling bad air what the beak mask was actually four was to crowd out the batter and instead hill good air and what they were doing was stuffing the mask of beat to keep it away from the person and they could even lights it light it on fire lake again Billy Madison. There's a scene where they're like the taking back the poop in lights on fire people sports. So they can actually stuff the beak with herbs and spices right shot at the KFC, and then they can inhale this good air to help crowd out the batter that was the technology that was there that was their approach and they felt that was affected. So this actually continued for quite a while with this mayes matic theory disease, you might think that this is a long time ago because it sounds strange. But the Maya's matic theory of disease did not become obsolete until the twentieth century that's actually finally became obsolete in the germ theory of disease really started to take hold. And this was around the nineteen hundreds. Physicians were now beginning to wear preliminary versions of surgical mask with a primary function of protecting the patient from contamination in surgical site infection. So kind of looking at today, it was used to protect the patient from the physician. In them not you know spraying out on them during the procedure in increasing their risk of infection. Now, visually, this became common practice for healthcare workers to wear mask and the surgical setting. Now is more hygienic practices began to be incorporated into operating rooms in hospitals. Several scientists sought out to discover whether or not the ritual of wearing a mask in surgery at a high level of effectiveness in preventing infection, which is their intent surprisingly several studies including a Meta analysis, and this means multiple studies a conglomeration of multiple studies examining this issue. This was published in Cochrane systematic review, very prestigious found that when physicians wore a mask or didn't wear a mask quote, there was no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked in unmask group in any of the trials. Could. Now, what this means is that even over one hundred years after the inception of the mask in surgery, the researchers noted that at best quote it is unclear whether wearing surgical face masks result in any harm or benefit to the patient undergoing clean surgery. In quote I want to look a little bit further because this just didn't make sense how this not be proven to be helpful at least in. So another study, this was published in the Journal of Hospital infections appropriate title. And they also concluded that the use of surgical masks surgery are obsolete and unnecessary. Researchers at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy summarises by stating quote clinical trials in the surgery theater have found no difference in wound infection rates with and without surgical mask. Despite these findings, it has been difficult for surgeons to give up a long standing practice.

And these little violent artichokes from Columbia people talk about it. It's fun to hear. Italians get into a discussion at the market in the morning. Over you know. The the poor teeny mushrooms are just fantastic right now our or as the white asparagus and so on now for thirty years you've had a a sort of a love affair with Italy but you still spend part of your time in North Carolina and part of your time in Italy. How does your eating experience Lee affect the way you appreciate food? When you're in the United States we do a lot of Italian cooking here but we also have a big garden in North Carolina. So we really into kind of the freshest you know in the most organics I think that's carries over to both countries. Yeah of all the cuisines in the United States. I happen to think that the southern is best and I grew up in the south. So it's wonderful cook in both places and my husband is a wonderful coat. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen. But I I must say we were revolutionized by moving to Italy and just realizing how simple food can be still be good and the whole key to that of course is the premo ingredients that you can find. So that's kind of revolutionized my thinking about food is that it's worth it to go search for the best bread best wine the best of whatever you can find and eat with the season. I suppose is something that we can employ here in the United States with the same. Gusto that Italians do yes. Everyone in Italy is so aware of the seasons. I won't say everyone but most everyone now this spring brings the little green almonds and It's a festive summer. Everyone's out it's artichoke time. It's fava beans. You know in the next usually being are now but it's weekly this year and can hardly wait until they say it's okay to enjoy the fava beans and local to remember asking the fruit of Dura. Are these plums local? And she said Oh no I'm sorry there from Castilian Lago by just five miles away. Right gives local a different sort of sense. Our guest fences means divide your time between her homes in Durham North Carolina and her talion villa in Cortana made famous in under the Tuscan Sun. Her book see in the Piazza takes us along on her culinary adventures in the small towns of Italy. It's now out in paperback. Now in your book you drop into tiny towns that are to me. They must be off the guidebook radar. I mean there's no information there but you always manage to find a good meal How do you decide where to eat? Do you have any personal tips? That you just can look at a place in in know if it's going to be a good experience for your meal. I keep a list going all the time when I read. Travel articles see restaurants recommended in newspapers. I keep a little running list but in these towns and see you in the Piazza. Their restaurants aren't usually going to be in most of those lists so I kind of follow my nose. I look at the menu. That's posted outside if it looks kind of old and dusty you can have don't want to go in but you can kind of tell something about a restaurant just from looking at. I think you can run the popular with the locals or is it trying to tourists. The other thing I do is go in the. If there's a wine store or a nice grocery store ask the proprietor. Where do you go for dinner on a special night in this town if you just say can you recommend a restaurant they might tell you anything but if you say where do you go on a special night? You probably not going to get directed to the tourist restaurant. You're going to get directed.
'Fight or Flight' Nerves Make Mice Go Gray
"They say that Marie Antoinette's hair turned white the night before she lost her head to the guillotine but constraints really have such a dramatic effect on hair-color a new study in mice concludes at Ken and credits overactive. Nerves with stripping the color from the animals locks and possibly hours researchers at Harvard Stem Cell Institute. Were interested in these stress and hair color issue so they decided to take a closer look at the stem cells that give rise to Milan. Ascites the cells that pump pigments into each hair follicle stem cells. Were an obvious target. Because changes in the stem cell population translates to try and justify hair color which very visible and easy to identify. Jacek sue the study senior author to start. She and her colleagues subjected mice to some rodent sized stressors like having their cage tilted their bedding dampened or their lights left on all night. So what did we find? We found stress indeed leads to premature hair grain in mice by took a long time for us to actually narrow down how occurs first they thought it could be the immune system attacking the millennia site stem cell population however mayes lack immune cells steel. Shell premature here graying under stress than they thought the key factor could be cortisol. The quintessential stress hormone the one way removed from the mice so that they cannot produce quarter so like her mows. The hairstyle turned gray under stress. That's when they turn their attention to the sympathetic nervous system which or constraints the body's overall reaction to stress including the classic fight or flight. Response those nerves reach out to our muscles organs and yes even our hair the nerve terminals wrap around each follicle like a ribbon and sooner team cut. Those connections the stem cells were spared and the animals kept their shiny black coat even in the face of minor discomfort. The findings appear in the journal Nature. It's unclear whether the same sympathetic nerves make us gray as we age but the results provide hope that we may someday be able to fight to hold onto our natural hair color and avoid that monthly flight to the hairdresser.
Voice for Car Dealerships with Ethan Richardson, Founder of CarSay
"Grow up in the UK and had a career in the chat bots base. And now you work in Boyce in Romania which is a pretty interesting mix. Can you tell us how you got into boys. And why in Romania. Yes right so I was born in the UK in Birmingham and for family reasons. I ended up in Romania so I've always loved tech for a long time since I was like seven years old and I remember my first Amstrad. PC An ember member trying to hack in CODA and it was really interested in from Nen. I've just loved learning and playing with tax cuts in tech. And it's really being a johnny from me. Touchy London Romania Amihai. So be ready to be an interesting and also yeah just being. Here's Mayes to a lot of things that are used to have in the case of C- being remain as a different environments onslow. I'll have to change that to the market. And what would you say is the voice. Landscape like in Romania and Eastern Europe. Right now yes it. That's really interesting. Actually because Romania is a place where Amazon hasn't really landed so to speak so for example to get deliveries from Amazon. You have to go to John Inside and get the United Devices. So voice hasn't really reached the point of being normal and the reason for that is because because of the language area Amazon Alexa doesn't support the Manian and also doesn't and so it's really a luxury to have wanted wanted these speakers and I did some research He recently and is such as about ten percent of people at she owned a small speak in their homes so so that is really low pets in the US and education. Imagine you know. It's not really easy to get your hands on echo dots or Google home to Feis. So that's why it's really a challenge that Jesus speak to be live out because a lot of people don't even know what an Alexa device is so when you're having these conversations with people you're actually starting from the very basics of what is this device sitting in front of you so the has been you know a challenged about the half been a few deaf shops have sprung up and more all developing skills for students outside of Romania. So I could see that changing in the near future when an exile Google start to support the local language and also these devices and locally the very difficult to get your hands on sometimes I have to get these devices imported from the US from the UK. Because you just can't get your hands on an echo and echo shows just not possible. This is really a challenge but as far as voice projects being implemented the hasn't been any no so far so it's really a case of of educate to the market and that what these devices can do more than just controlling music or searching on the light. Slow changing the light colors so you you know. Starting from that point is actually a point of trying to educate the market has been a bit of interest from the business community but as far as you know what Camis knees devices do and actually people want to know about the adoption rates some during in different market areas so there is a bit of interest respite in terms of rolling this out as a viable product for a at that can be sold is. It's at the point where people have really got that dates as behind in terms of adoption customer adoption rights. Such you know make a feasible viable option. So it's quite a neat technology and as as you can say it's it's a challenge here but at the same time it's a great opportunity because I'm on case you know there isn't any competition so for me being here. It's re- me me easy to come the subject matter expert and actually show people what these devices can do so like. I said there's only being ten percent adoption rate of these devices prices so I've had to change the way that I look at voice instead of being in home skill development. I've had JANCI look outside of the box in Siwa what can I do. What can I build is out of home? And these skills have to interact with people outside of the because people just don't have them in hung and it's really a challenge to the businesses and say these advantages that you can actually get from using these devices but I do see that the voice remaining will grow and on if the applications develops that will really fulfill the need and reduce the friction of every day. Hassles I think as a designer and a developer myself I can see voice fits and like I said before coming from the UK. I had a lot of things that I could access. But here things are very the basic and tons of bringing access you have records for example online is not available in San things like this of really behind the Times but it opens up your advised to question things and say well. Why is that like that and lies this during this? And because of that you don't accept the status quo use of question everything. And that's that's how it led to me coming up with 'cause I which is a new idea a new project that such gains traction well again. I congratulate delay you because you know voice even in the. US is still something that you know. We're trying to educate people on so I can imagine in Romania kind of feeling like this one. A person has to feel slightly lonely and intimidating but also really exciting as you kind of pioneer. This concept is that accurate. And maybe how you're feeling definitely it's a lonely space because there's not many people developing skills here. Some developers have tried to hand just to see what the technology can do. But they're all very many people who are trying to core business behind this. I think a lot of people say as a novelty and when I say to people that this is what they can do. They go is nice but they don't really see the business opportunity because of the lack of Romanian support. So I'm sure aw GEICO. Low Amazon soon will support the language and then I will be the fast long stretch be building viable businesses on the back of tests. But like you said is it's lonely place to be but you know reaching out to different people in the UK Meet U S. You know it's really good to see the voice community. Gordon Globally so. I don't think it's just a local often. Golfing people are really amazing things in the UK in Germany and also in the US so it's fun times to be voice. Yeah and you know. All businesses physicist start with solving a problem and yours specifically is within the car dealership space. Can you tell us about your journey. And what led you to creating car. Say Yes yes so The story behind this as quite financially because it all starts from me actually wanting to buy a new car and I actually went to local car dealership which was a near where I live and she just wants expecting to be great information being able to walk out ostby. We are seeing a car and I got there and the salesperson who was assigned to me didn't speak English and it was a bit strange because he looks at me and I looked at him and we were like how we going to do this. And so he ended up Calling one of his clicks. You also didn't speak English so there was a massive language barrier so I ended up walking out with a grocer which was in women so I actually went home. Sought Dan House like that. That's not a good experience. That's not a good customer experience. So I started to their some research online about CAU- dealerships and the challenges is in some of the new developments in the market and realize that it's not just me a lot of car. Dealerships are having problems with the challenges from ability platforms such Suba and also increasing options and leasing analyzed at these dealerships have really struggling to create great customer experiences. And so I did some research and found out that it was an ultra to recall estates. If dealerships experiences improved by seventy two percent then people would visit them more and also Fifty three percent of people would be more likely to buy vehicle if the customer expense improved so I saw that that was a great opportunity to actually use voice in a car dealership because of my situation I

"mayes" Discussed on Hanselminutes
"Scott Script to talk with you. I'm I'm excited to talk to you. But more importantly the little people in my house are excited that I'm talking to you because this is a a roadblocks house and My my my eleven year old and my thirteen year old are obsessed and in a world of minecraft and fortnight and the Internet itself. Roadblocks has been kind of a staple people in our house for years. Can maybe for people who aren't familiar with you can give us a little sense of what roadblocks is and why it has sustained power sure we are a community generated game site that means when you come to roadblocks you can explore lots of different games that were actually created by our community. Let's kids in high school kids in college kids some as young as middle school or elementary school. We have a ways where you can play with your friends and connect with others online and you can even built games together her so it's a lot about exploring and creating and playing together. Yeah the I thought they were playing like a game but they enter roadblocks they find games within it from the Community of games and then all think that they're doing one thing like I thought they were playing cops and robbers and another day. They were playing another game Yup We got cops and robbers various variations of that. We have Superhero Games. We have work at a pizza place as quite popularity can get a team together and run a pizza shop shop together. We have a lot of high school simulation games. You can go to high school and be a teacher or a student Have a family Be Part of a gymnastics team Qalat of cool things that you can explore really quickly in a digital space that you can also explore on real life. Maybe can do it a little bit faster. And a little bit more creatively creatively online. One of the things that I think is notable about roadblocks is at some game makers and game construction things have a kind of limitations words. It's like we're a game where you shoot people. And here's a thousand ways. You could come up with different ways to shoot people but you just expressed diversity of things at one can do from cops and Robert on the on the one side or a high school simulator other any limitations to what one could model within the application. We have found very few so it's mostly three D.. Although you can do to de Games it's mostly a multiplayer. Although you can do single player games we do have a limit on the number of players. Players can be together sort of a technological limit but we're trying to increase that as much as possible so that you can have expansive vast worlds with hundreds or someday even even thousands of people playing in the same space so that sounds like no limit to me. I mean like it for no limits. Yeah the aim is no limits which I think is really exciting. You know this is evocative of like early social gaming online like I remember second life. which was you entrace space? And then you decide what you WanNa do with that space. Yeah we take a lot of inspiration from a lot of the world's that have come before a lot of people have tried to go after this idea of the metaverse and you even see it in books like Ready Player one or snow. Crash is one of the books that inspired second life. And there's a spin this collective idea of a digital space where you have a strong real authentic but digital identity where you can explore worlds and really connect with people across space and time. Almost you can visit the pyramids. You can have a friend who's in China China and this is the same concepts. It's inspiring roadblocks and several other companies. Today but we have a very strong vision of being able to create this digital metaverse and bring people together in one of the things that was interesting about second life and world's before or it was. They really intended those things for older teens. But I see really young kids on roadblocks and I remember my my kids were were young what do you when do you think think is an appropriate time to introduce a young person to an online world in a safe way. That's a great question as a parent. I really think it's somewhat somewhat individual in terms of like how your kid can handle social relationships and you know how much attention you're willing to give them what guidance you're willing to get them on roadblocks. We definitely make a lot of effort to make our community safe for kids we do very Strict moderation of content as well as moderating reading the things that people say to each other. We have a real time text filter. That will take out bad words or anything that we deem unsafe Even things that are are kind of considered bullying or flirty content. That might be okay or playful for an older population. That really aren't okay and Nwsafe for younger kids so we do a lot of moderation on our side to make sure that our communities safe for all ages and as a parent oh I think digital citizenship is something that I want to teach my kids and that I think in an age we all should be teaching our kids. It's inevitable that they will have social interactions online mine. At some age and at some age will be independent of YOU and so we're we're quite aware of trying to teach good behavior and good habits to our population and it's a tough thing and is really an unsolved problem in the industry like you said most of the products out there and the ones that have come before are aimed at adults who are considered entered to have good judgment whether that's true or not in real life that's how software has basically been built so far so there's not a lot of State of the art help for people to have good behavior online. Yeah and it's hard to also express like what is behavior like I m my at my My thirteen eighteen year old was quite upset because someone jumped into his mind Grefe world and took some of his stuff. And that's you know that's just like going to school. People are going to be mean to. You can't act. I know a I can say hey. Knock that off. But I was impressed. If you go to roadblocks dot com and look at this section slash parents. You do everything from you know. Look get the clothing of the avatars to make sure that it's appropriate has an extensive reporting system. It feels like there's more parental controls and chat filters than in most any other other similar environment. That's right we are. We do consider ourselves to be pushing The state of the art in in terms of safety and digital civility. We also ideally get people to learn how to resolve their own conflicts so One really touching example that I found from talking into some roadblocks players and parents that came through to visit our offices was a girl. was being bullied on roadblocks by somebody that she knew and her a bomb was able to use that as a teaching experience to bring the girls together and talk about how their words impacted each other and they were actually on the tour together rebuilding their friendship. And that's the kind of thing that I would love to make happen. More often and seamlessly did you say digital digital citizenship. Yeah digital civility digital citizenship. This really excellent ways to phrase what we're trying to express here. Yeah we're in a large virtual world. We're seeing society Define itself digital society is is building on roadblocks and people have different kind of roles and different fred ways of interacting online than you do in real life and we wanna make it as healthy and support as possible. What kind of lessons? Though can you learn learn from the the world that came before you like. We talked about a talked about second life. Let's go even further like 'cause mud's or BBS multi multi user. The soon as the computers became network they became social. Yeah I think a few lessons that I look at kind of contrasting various products. That went before one is that you need something to do. I mean one of the big challenges with second life that maybe wasn't present as much mud or four or kind of traditional games. Like world of warcraft is that you showed up in second life. There's very little to do. And so on roadblocks there are games right. There's a there's monsters to kill or places to explore or levels to level up or things to craft so having something to do together is really really important. Another thing is around around Anonymity so and you can see this in a lot of the online forums as well as Places like facebook when people are anonymous sometimes it actually brings out the worst first behavior but it also can let you express sides of yourself that are really valuable and authentic and maybe you might be afraid to say in real life. So we're trying to strike that balance three you can be anonymous yet also safe. And so. That's one of the reasons. We invest a lot in forming friend connections. Where you're more likely to be anonymous positive way and also moderation systems? That really helped keep the public areas vary so it's a really good point because a lot of people believe that the anonymity online is an opportunity to be mean and not an opportunity. Because that's right one of the things that I was very impressed about because Certainly my little boys do not have high end devices by any means they you know. I think one of them has an iphone six. But your your engine for roadblocks is goes even farther to the simplest of devices but it also looks amazing on my high end. Pc Yeah we have a single platform strategy where we we want to run on all devices that goes from your xbox at all the way down to phones also tablets computers. We definitely want to be accessible well and make sure that our community is a welcoming place for everybody no matter what country you're in no matter. How fancy your hardware is? You're welcome here. And we want you to part of our community and we want the games to be good so in this case. You're bringing inclusion all the way out to device inclusion because we don't know work there on what device it's the wrong might be on an old android or an old iphone. Yeah I mean we see a lot of kids. Using maybe their parents device or a hammy down device from their parents. It's so our audience is not always on the biggest fanciest machines you know. I was looking around to see some of the most creative examples of of games on roadblocks blocks and I found one that. I'm not even sure if it's real or not but I find this hilarious. It's an article called how to pass an interview on roadblocks and it makes makes me wonder it's got this wonderful little suit person says be polite and show up on time look professional and it's got a little roadblocks person in a suit. I'm trying to understand Are People hosting actual job interviews here or is this a game. That's funny. I haven't seen that one. My guess would be. It's a game I haven't heard of people hosting actual job interviews on roadblocks blocks although our community of developers are starting to create indie studios essentially. We're seeing teams of five or even up to fifteen twenty people working together that includes artists game designers software developers and they might be recruiting people on roadblocks which just gets to the point of it could do anything right. This is a shared space and within the limits of the technology. If certainly someone had to have an interview on roadblocks. I don't see any reason that they couldn't do that for sure. Do People speak to each other. Is this are you preventing. Seems like there's a lot that my kids have tried to say in the chat. Filter has prevented them from saying. But you do. Keep people off microphones right. So that's right. We have text chat currently. We don't currently have voice. Is that a conscious thing or is it like a limit of technology like it seems to me like I was on. xbox live very very long time ago and frankly I. It's been years since I turned text chat on for anyone who's not a friend because I just don't trust the people to be kind that's a it's a priority. So far I would say something that we might consider in the future but it really hasn't been a priority our priorities helping people..

"mayes" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Should write about this BMI's, and this is like, who does Detroit because I think a lot of people don't think Detroit is at the forefront of any of this stuff, but it's not like kacie. Mayes was bad. But this is a pitch design success story there, there's more demarcation now, between Mayes is cutter, and sliders for as like vertical movement is concerned. So you. Yeah he is. It's mid-nineties plus plus cutter, plus plus splitter. The slider was closer to average rebuff in college now that's playing better because it has added vertical depth. So we are looking at four, plus better, pitches, and command. And there was some medical stuff with Mayes when he was a sophomore at Auburn, but he has his stuff has been really good for the last two years now. And he hasn't been hurt. So it seems like that is behind him as well. Yeah, I don't know when he's going to be up because obviously, Detroit doesn't care to compete and start his, his service clock but he could probably get bigly outright now. So if they promote him to AAA aggressively in maybe we'll see him in September, like look watch the pacing of his promotion, like if it looks like they're kind of doing it in a way where you know, it's it was six weeks in high six weeks in AA six weeks. Aaa the maybe we see something if it's very even maybe they're just sort of trying to plan to get him up. September for a little bit. And he seems like a very data driven tech friendly open minded, type guy, which if you take someone who has the raw talent ticket picks for silver all. And then you couple it with that aspect of things. That's pretty scary. Well think about, you know, think about where some of the hires for pitching coaches last came from, you know. Yes, college. Exactly right. Yes. Yes, he sees at the forefront of a lot of stuff like this further than a lot of for a lot of big league player dams groups. Are you can read about that in my book, which comes out during the draft? Actually, so in case people are too distracted to prepare for the draft because they're so excited about the MVP machine coming out on June fourth. Can we just do like a quick draft preview? And hopefully we'll have you end or Kylie on to recap. What happened and tell us who these players, we've never heard of our, but just like very broad general setting up the draft questions like. You mentioned Richmond. Is he the consensus best player? Is there a clear, consensus best player, what kind of draft is this is deep is it thin is pitching heavy is in position player heavy? And I guess also, like which team has the most at stake in this draft in terms of like a bunch of early picks that they really make a killing. So, yes, in my opinion, Abby, rush Mond is head and shoulders best prospect in this class because Baltimore's picking one and what Mike Elias did while he was running drafts in Houston was to kinda deal at one and spread bonuses around throughout the rest of the draft like no one is totally. Sure, if rush Mond will be pick one, although they're starting to be buzz, that, like is becoming a sure thing. Like maybe a very sure thing that is already shared Shirley. Sure. But yes, like it is against the lies is m o to, to just take the best guy and give him slot. But in this case, you kind of might have to because this guy's really good and. Then the next storyline right now, in this may not hold water over the coming weeks is like where does Andrew von go? Andrew von is the first baseman at cow that when the golden spikes as a sophomore and might do so, again as junior, although my money's on Richmond. But like statistically, he's one of the best if not the best college hitter of all time, but he plays for space. It's right handed hitting first base profile that has been successful more more. Frequently lately, Alonso Hoskins Paul Goldschmidt, s-. So like, after there had been long period where like Eric Karros was the only guy now like a bunch of Ryan hitting first base college prospects, have succeeded. So, you know von is like part of that group..

Well, the the what I think the one from the movies would have to be the cyclops in the seventies Sindbad. Ooh. That's a good one, which you'd be emoting. There is just brilliant. The design of him or them is more was like nothing before it and it was copy somewhat afterwards. But I find that to be a wonderful wonderful monster as far as monsters that may or may not exist. I just love the whole, you know, the Kelly hopkinsville events the fifties. You heard of effort this. Yeah. Well that to me. I mean is such a compelling story the whole siege on the house. I mean, the whole the imagery of it. Whatever the truth behind it. It's a phenomenal tail. And so that might be does might be my favorite monsters in real life. If I was probably understating it when I said, I heard of it. The the we did a three episode arc on. It is been one of those monsters. I've loved since I was a kid for for the same reasons. And actually, I I still have made I've got shot video of this. But I haven't put it together. Put it online yet at a need to. I did talk about this Kentucky cryptic con last year.

"Welcome to the Mayes Martin, puppy minutes. This is Sara Wilson. And in this episode. We're going to go over three tips for getting your puppy too. It is so much fun to play fetch with dogs. It is one of the universal games that both humans and dogs love. There are ways to make that game easier and here are three of them. When you're starting to teach your puppy how to play fetch starting a hallway or toss the item toward a corner. Either way you wanna make it very difficult for the puppy to run off on their own with the toy that way. Really, they have no choice, but to come back in your direction, next the minute. They pick the toy up praised them from the moment. They pick it up. It's good puppy. Good puppy, clap, your hands. Really encourage them to come back to you. Good. Good. Good. And if the puppies spits, the toy out along the way, just go silent. As if you turned off a faucet. So it's good puppy. Good, buddy. You're not angry, you just stop the positive input instantly. The more instant you can be the clearer. It will be for your puppy. What it is you like and what it is. You don't like so much if they go and pick it up again you start up again, good good puppy Atta boy. Lastly, don't focus on grabbing the toilet. When the puppy comes back to you. When the puppy comes back to you. What you want to reward is the puppy coming back to you. So the puppy comes back to you Pat him you Tiernan could that was so good what good Bobby? That was great good. Good puppy. Use your hands gently try to develop the skill of being enthusiastic with your voice and gentle and calm with your hands. It takes a little while. Because usually our hands metro voice at first, but you want to be gentle. Stroking with the dogs for when you're praising them enthusiastically. Otherwise with poppy, if your hands are excited date and to get really rambunctious, and they'll start to jump around and mouth and get crazy. So calm hands. Enthusiastic voice. You want to praise them for at least ten to twenty seconds when they returned to you. Then casually take the toy and do it again. If when the puppy comes back to you you just make a grab at the toy. That's a great way to teach the puppy to stay just out of reach because they don't want you to grab the toy. So remember play in an area where they really have to come back in your direction praise them the moment, they pick up the item until they're all the way back to you turning off that praise like a faucet if they drop it. And then when they do get back to you pet them praise them, let them know just how pleased you are the day came all the way back after that, gently take the toy and play again, do it this way and pretty soon your puffy will run out grab the toy and run back to you. With a wagging tail really happen enthusiastic. And you have a lifelong fixture on your hands. And a lot of fun for both of us through the years. If you have any questions at all, please stop by my smart, puppy dotcom..
Cleanfeed: remote recording and live broadcasting thats better than a double-ender
"Hi, I'm Ellen Tepper today and beyond podcasting, detailed conversation with Mark Bacchus of clean feed the online service that allows remote recording and live broadcasting that's even better than a double ender and includes built in virtual cards for prerecorded clips in the pro version. Thanks. What shooting into beyond putt, costing dot com way. We recognize that your online radio show is much more than just podcast. Your show can be broadcast live, which is not a podcast you'll show can be heard on a website which isn't a podcast either. Of course, you're online radio show can and shoot also be syndicated as a podcast by RSS where your listeners can subscribe using a standard pod catcher, or you'll shows own branded app, Android, and I o s beyond podcasting dot com. Kevin microphones interfaces, mixers, production, software recording techniques, based practices and mall. Now enjoy another episode of young podcasting dot com with your host, Alan Tipper. You're listening to be on podcasting. I'm Alan Seper in the studio in Miami, and I have Mark from somewhere in the United Kingdom. I believe from clean feed on the other end. Is that correct? Mark? It is. Okay. And we are apparently recording because it says red and the counter is moving forward. So we are now recording this conversation using clean feed that net, a wonderful web service, which I have already used for several other interviews both on beyond podcasting dot com. And also on a couple of my other shows, including copy Kwa, FM and also do rather global. So I've used it for a few different shows already, and now I'm for the first time experiencing the pro version. And that's why Mark is here to help discuss both the basic one and the pro one in all of the new pro features that have been added. That's right. As you've already found out the provisions. Allows you to quantum of stuff actually at at very high quality. And that was our intention from the very beginning to allow anyone to experience high quality audio over the nets. So a free package of of clean feed allows you to do just that to invite your guests, connect them up, and we even include a recording out of the box. They not free version of pain fade, which I think a lot of people have used, and I think found the the benefits of using the service which which I think is being great. Yes. And I would like to clarify, unlike some of the similar services that are out there which do an automatic or automated dual ender your service with clean feed does not do that. Correct. So that's right. So we send the audio around the incidents and as the GD receives it, the studio will record it. So vest person, cons of of of each type of system that the benefit of Al system is. That's what you hearing is. Exactly what you're recording. So I think unlike some other systems, you don't get the high quality audio live, which can be problematic if you're doing in something not needs that you know high quality audio. So you can actually get emphasis of of the puzzle of the of the Randall will even their emotions. So using it this way and recording it at live from the studio end means that you're capturing that live moment as it is an ethnic benefits hugely with production workflows, and you're not having to wait at the end for fall, stop load and the download. It's instant and it saves straight to the studio, and which is again, a huge benefits. It also makes clean feed appropriate for a live broadcast. Whereas all of the others that do the the automated dual ender do not exactly. And it's, you may as well full back to Skype if you're gonna do it that way. Because like I said, I thank think the o'day quality is obviously as clean as as Kane fee is live. So the other advantage of course is that we allow for money. Transmission of audio as well as stereo content. So if you go to mix, then you go to stereo output pluck the stereo output, straightens your stereo input of your of your sound, capturing device on your computer, and and if you go, you know, you've got a full by quality studio output of the incident. That's who have you want to send it. So again, we've seen great success of radio stations, for example, outdoing an outside broadcast and they can pretty much broke everything from the remote location back to the studio which is being I think re will receive. We've had no complaints, and it's been very stable. And again, the latency even on our stereo side of the platform is is being very low. So again, you know, great for live broadcasts.
