Checkride Turbulence And 3 Books
"What's up. Walling a bobby how are you. I'm great nother week. 'nother show we Shows grown a lot and we want to think about the listen to the show. We are back to another check right episode. This is something. We put together that we're branding or calling. Check ride turbulence taking the bumps check rides and this week. We want to talk about really something basic to help you. Prepare for the check ride That that wally sees too few people doing and that. I enforced here about some students that come to us from other schools. Don't use these books on a regular basis and as we become commercial pilot's probably think of more but a student pilots. You should have and be aware of three big things as it relates to flying. There's obviously more but these are three things for the check. Ride the p. h. The acs and the foreign name. And if you were to bring those three books to your check ride and actually know how to use them know. What's in them. I think you'd be surprised how easy that check ride. They would go would you. Would you agree. Well absolutely i. i remember my first I grew up in an aviation family. I flew with my father quite a bit as a as a very young Young little boy. But i took my. I what i call my first real flying lesson on august. Thirty first nineteen eighty-one so almost forty years ago and it was in a tomahawk piper tomahawk. Who was two five four nine alpha and member walking The the i fly. We flew for about an hour and we walk back into the flight. School the f. b. l. And i remember my instructor taking me right up to the counter and there's a little display case there and he said you need to get that book right there and you need to learn it now. I have already done private pilot. Ground school so i already had a copy of the f. a. r. a. m. and You know. I had a jepson Private pilot book and so i was Well on my way. But i remember him saying okay. You need to buy that book and you need to know everything in it. And so that night i remember going home and opening up the po h. And starting to remember it To memorize it and learn it and you know. I remember learning the menu. The propeller manufacturer was a seventy eight inch propeller fixed pitch. And i'm i'm thinking to myself. Well okay he said. I needed to learn it so you know what that meant on that day did you. Did you instantly know what all that Probably not probably not. But i did. I learned it And nowadays I i went back. And i think of my career my aviation career and how many check rides. I've taken over my career. And i i don't know how many it is but it's a lot and i don't think i have ever taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not have a personal copy of the po h whether it be in print or digitally I went to my bookshelf. The other day and i found that tomahawk manual. I still have it. it's again. It's over forty years old. I have a a beechcraft baron manual. I have a beechcraft duchess. I've bonanza manual. I have one for a a warrior and they're old but they're they're still good information and a mess still valid and of course with the airlines You know the issue you manuals and back in the day used to be paper manuals but now it's all digitally transmitted the ipad so that makes it very nice but again i have never taken a check ride in an airplane that i did not own the manual to And you know so. What are you studying the manolo. The peo- h we're talking about here So what do you study well you know obviously limitations It's more knowing where it's more knowing how to use the manual then knowing what's in it And and i tell people man you know if you're just gonna spend ten minutes getting an overview of the manual. Maybe the table of contents for each chapter might be a thing just so you know what's in there. Yeah and we'll we'll show some of my lack of pilots. When i was a student you know. And and how i got smarter as i got more proficient in probably happens everybody but i fly. Our one eighty two a lot now flat a lot with my family. I check the fuel Obviously a lot i have. A dipstick tells me how much fuels in that and recently I think i asked a rampart or somebody to check that for me before i went then i checked it again before i went in the numbers aren't the same that i had asked for and i thought that was a little bit odd But they they they want and did that with the dipstick and they they had the wrong dipstick of course but i asked him. Do you know in the ph where to look at. How many gallons are in the tank because they had a dipstick said a different number of gallons in that particular tank and this is a student pilot who wants to learn and i wanted to teach them and also teach my staff as well as saint. Thomas said where do we look. Let's go pull out the peo- h. And look at it and it was funny. They jumped towards the back and performance in the fuel system. And all these other places but as you talk about limitations there's a pretty good summary right up in the fourth or fifth page that drives about what each tank has in it and that's a quick way to verify and to your point about knowing how to use the book i don't necessarily need to know every plane and every tank size and everything at an airport but if i'm going to go fly that plane i better know where to find out how much fuel it can hold.
Where Conversational Interfaces Belong in Banking - with Shankar Narayanan
"So shankar. I wanted to start off talking about what elements of workflows within banking where we can really apply conversational interfaces today. I think there's a lot of claims about ai taking over customer service or some other functions but of course it's more nuanced than app when you take a look at where your technologies being applied and what you see in the landscape. How would you summarize wear conversational interfaces fit in in banking right. So there's a lot of hype around conversational So i would like to break that particular meant we are on the very early stages of conditionally. I am in the technologies just evolving as long so in terms of in banking. I think the key use case for conditionally is of several but let me talk about the customer engagement side am banks are looking at cutting costs on call centers and reputation calls which comes into the call center they move into some form of a flow for chat bots and chad votes has to be intelligent enough to understand that alonso's and respond appropriately the challenge. Which we've been seeing and which most of the companies thunder companies are evolving from celebre. Give you an example. This has been restarted. This company was that everything's moved conversation and unstructured data. And we just happening where you have people chatting or come on what they can ask anything. Because there's no structured work or the zone many shropshire that they can ask anything. So you'll you'll heavy lifting is done by your systems in entirely to understand. The piece has to be good enough to understand the intent and appropriate the answer Their tools at one is banks have to be pretty strict in terms of how they respond just to make sure that the brand is kept so the way. If if it's an ai which is open to training or training without any human interface. It can this phone and get trained and If based on property may give a wrong response so if we need to have a better control on that and stock has to be built in that so what we are seeing or the bureau of let me give you an example right when we started in twenty seven twenty eight when we launched our first services with a bank the workload pretty structured the opportunity impact build a lot of variations on radiance fall the the intense again the stroke of the nlp to understand how pavilions for that to respond a car in the food has to happen is let me give an example if i make a query that hey there's my checkbook i applied for it guest today so you may have multiple variants which built in and the system understands what you intend hits and response to it. We launched. We had of art. Sixty thousand interactions per day mid some of the banks on viet launched in india. Where the there are twenty million customers and the operational team was overwhelmed. Because you can't keep having team billions so we have to build a deep learning mortar so that it auto trains and the billions auto bill so this my team both so there was a lot of learning which we act do as we each rated in canonisation layer journey the customer engagement side. That's the sign the law of other use cases which is emerging will the last few years especially in a machine comprehension whether market documents which banks have and. Let's assume that you are a relationship manager and you just want to know that on. How is the apple Gonna be doing tomorrow. And what does the cio report. Amancio information office of has created and the relationship manager doesn't have time to read through it so you have a reading the document which is being fed understanding the intense and comprehending it and you can quit any queries and it will not give up particular on servile pick relevant answers and showcase whether human gan understand it and pick up the knossos. It's such plus plus right. So i see that as a segment which we are working on with some max banks so using a for internal processes you have the rpm which is basically. That's a separate were to complete version. But in terms of con- additionally is fell focus on you. See a lot of use gives us or hr all the mundane tasks which people have to communicate with. A human is being moved onto box or workflow base os and that starts the shift which is happening. And we're seeing that. I have data which shows the in fact last month a one of the banks did six million interactions in a month. Or the because it's amazing but the final. Wally masur doing now just to clarify chocolate. This is six million internal interactions. You're talking about this. hr faculty here. No no no. No your customer writ large of a lincoln howard phasing customer actions retail banking iraq jumps rea-. Now that makes sense humans out there but just imagine a call center will not be able to have that kind of scalable volume now. There are lots of unique interactions which are happening which banks looking through. So i'll give you an example while the banks had to adam. Api just tell where the credit card is going to be delivered on which day just going to be delivered because they didn't have the use case but customer Asking that i applied for credit card. Where is it. I haven't received it so bank said okay. I don't want this to go to the call center. I want to based on customers asking these questions. Why don't i give a particular times time kind of thing where i can tell where the where the credit card is share not share so what is happening with conversation is if banks can leverage and i think banks are slowly understanding the scale of it
Flying The Aircraft
"What's wally. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good this week. We're going to cover a kind of a potpourri of things that we were talking about as it relates to flying the aircraft. Maybe not letting the aircraft fly you. But maybe you flying the aircraft Try and share some of our tips and tricks or maybe your wisdom With some of the pilots that are out there listening to us Talking about a number of things so this all came about because we were brainstorming on things to talk about looking at everybody's kind of topics that they had written in to a statistic about and we stumbled across one that was talking about leveling off or tips for leveling off I remember. I remember when i was a private pilot My circle used to tell me all over and over and over again level off before you touch anything else. And i think one day click when he finally told me. We're gonna always do it in this order. We're gonna pitch power and trim. And i've heard that saying many many times since then but i think that's what made a really click for me. Why is why is leveling off in that order so important wally. And how many times do you see it down the wrong way. I see done wrong. A lot In you know we're under the airspace here in At this airport so as as flying with applicants and students. When i do some flight instructing a lot of times we just need to get out from underneath the bravo or or at least to the Under the four thousand foot shelf so we're just Just trying to get out of the way and we want to get to a place in a fairly expeditious manner and So basically You know a lot of times you know have the applicant maybe climbing and maintain two thousand fly heading of such and such. And i'll tell them i says listen. We just need to get out of the the airspace and we just need to go about twenty miles up here and Inevitably they will You know it as they're approaching two thousand feet. I'll see their hand over there on the throttle and they pull the throttle back and word about nineteen hundred and fifty feet and we've got throttle pulled back to maybe twenty two hundred twenty one hundred. Rpm something like that and the airplane. is is just struggling to climb and then when we finally do level off You know they're you know we've got a very high pitch up attitude and we're doing very very slower speed so You know all you have to do is just just get up there and as you said pitch power trim you know immediately. Just just put push the nose over and zero out the climb rate and watch the airspeed increase and then when it does increase. I'm you know and then pull your power back to your desired power setting and just keep in mind What i see with with is that most applicants is they're they're just used to flying slow and You know when we log time in her logbook were logging time. We're not logging miles All the requirements are based on flight. Time so go and slow is actually a a good thing for for the most part most of the time But when you actually get out and you're using the airplane as as a tool to get places there might be situations where you wanna go fast. You need to get there quicker. You wanna get there before the the fbi closes and you can't get fuel or or or whatever you just you just need to get there faster. You've maybe you have to use the restroom so getting there. Faster might be a good thing. So you know when you get into that phase of your flying career if you will You're going to have options. The airplanes don't have one speed much like your car. You can draw down the highway at sixty five. Seventy five eighty five Obviously faster speeds. You're going to get there quicker and you're probably gonna burn more feel Slower speeds more economical from fuel standpoint. But it's gonna take you a little bit more time. And i think as we've talked about this off the air and and as part of the show. It took years for me to start really thinking about this from the standpoint of going somewhere or whatever mission i might be on. What's going to be best for me in this mission whether it's time whether it's fuel whether it's a combination of both I probably wasn't looking at the performance charts three years ago like i do today hence private or my instrument training because it's always whether it's right or wrong. It's almost always about the training effort right. We're working on. The mission is the training task. We're going to shoot these approaches and we're gonna work. We fly to that place. We shoot that and that's probably mostly in the hundred ninety not range right but we're not worried about twenty three ended. Rpm's this level of lean this level of mixture. We're worried about just doing that. Approach right then once we get done with all the test taking all the Examiner time then. We start flying places
10 Things Student Pilots Do Wrong
"What's up wally bobby. How are you doing great another week. Another episode we love doing these shows for. Y'all hopefully. You're enjoying them are. We've got a number of new five star reviews on itunes and other platforms. If you're enjoying the show please take time to Write us a review and if we should be doing something different or better don't hesitate to reach out and let us know that as well lots of good questions and ideas for the show coming in also and someone said something about Us covering some of the top mistakes that student pilots make and lo and behold. We found an article. And we're gonna we're gonna borrow this article and talk about our thoughts on some of these things in flight magazine. Which is the texaco flight. Training magazine from the ao pa. Still the one that i get imprint. I much enjoy it. has a lot of good things in it as a relates to flight training. So if you're not a member of the go register you'll get the magazine for free either imprint of electronic but way back in january of two thousand eighteen There was an article written ten things ten mistakes. That student pilots do wrong. And we're going to talk about those while the examiner. I know you see a lot of things that go wrong. let's jump right in. We've we've done some of these topics but we'll we'll go through all ten of them. What's number ten number ten pertains to checklists and lonely appalled. We have done a An episode on the usage It is something that is required to be graded or or evaluated. Rather i should say on a check ride Pretty much on on all the landings. All all the takeoffs and everything down there in in One of the elements that i'm supposed to be looking at as proper use of checklists and You know it's pretty simple. If if you don't use a checklist you're obviously not properly using it. So i see Occasionally on on check. Rides that that applicants. Are you know especially for our landing checklist. They're just using gump's and they're going through it and they're going through their mind. But there's not a checklist anywhere close And that's that's really a bad habit pattern I and i know Maybe a cessna one seventy two especially a fuel injected one where carburetor heat is not Introduced to the the scenario. There's really not a whole lot to do As far as landing. You know as far as Checklist items But it's it's a habit pattern it something that is required and it something expected When you get a job plan a big airplane especially at an airline. Checklists are are used. They're used every time You know. I fly big airplanes and some of our checklists. Only have three items on them. And i have a memorized. But i still pull out the checklist and i look at it and i read it and i i respond to it appropriately so it is a big item. You know you're not gonna fly the same airplane all the time. You may fly. An airplane now has cal flaps. You may be flying. Fuel injected one seventy two. And you're used to that but today you're flying an end model and you've got carburetor so you got carburetor heat to be considered and that's all on the checklist Landing lights Just just everything. That's on the checklist is it's there for for a reason so you know it's something that that We we need to do better with you. And i think as a student pilot when i was training you i did get lulled into this fact that i'm flying saint planes. They don't the school when i was going here. Only had one seventy two. So i was always flying a one. Seventy two all tricycle fixed gear aircraft. You could get lulled into that. But i've flown a lot of different types of aircraft. Now and if i only thought of those items on one seventy two n p models than if i did like you said flu anything else that i could get myself in trouble or hurt pretty quick right so number. Nine on. This list is poor weather. Planning i find that to be something that I find myself chasing people down talking about on a regular basis at the flight. School people learning how to fly. They wanna go. They wanna go And they just i don't. I don't think as much as we talk about it. I still don't think students understand. The dangers of what weather can do to us. And that weather as europe pilot and you fly weather is not necessarily the same three or four miles from here. We can see here. Might not be what. What's going on three or four miles away And it's it's shocking. I think i've told the story of trying to fly to brenham to see my dad. Not that far away didn't do a weather briefing or really understand all about the weather. Pass this airport and get out there and be a wall of clouds just five or ten miles away and have to do you know quote unquote a holding pattern out there for for a thirty minute time. They would burn off but they never burned off. And i wasted a lot of gaffes in a lot of my time Trying to get somewhere. That i could have solved for that. If i would've just looked at the weather
Interview With Conversation Design Institute co-founder And CEO Hans van Dam
"Odds van damme. Welcome to the voice by podcast. Thank you so much for having me. Okay so you are. The head of the conversation design institute. Why don't you tell the listeners. A little bit more about what that is just to get them started and then we'll talk a little bit more about how that all came to be. Yeah so conversation design institute. What we do is really recognize develop and promote the role of the conversation designer. So we sort of envisioned at every enterprise in the world is going to have a department. That's going to work on a assistance whether it's chat bots voice assistance and are all going to have people designing these conversations. Deploying them and managing them So we really recognize that as a serious profession and together with the industry. Really try to figure out you know who's going to be working at department. What's the skill set that they need. And then we develop content for that so we have courses. We have a certification program And that's really how we try to position ourselves in the market as the leading training and certification institute for designing versions. Okay yeah that's great okay so for the listeners. Now they have that context. But you didn't just arrive at the conversation designed institute is like the first thing you've ever done so tell me a little bit about how you how the conversation zayn is came to be but like your career and how you move forward. You were just mentioning to me. You thought when you were younger pre university that you thought you might be a writer That's straight into economics. And and i think writing came back a little bit. Yeah that's that's that's definitely true. So for when i was in university i i went to university of amsterdam thinking that was going to be really studying economics and then i got more interested in philosophy literature and just started reading a lot and i was writing fiction short stories and i. I really thought. I want you know was going to become a writer a novelist and wrote a manuscript. Send out too much publisher Publishers stay did not agree with that vision So when it was time to actually get a job. I got interested in copywriting. So it's like what's something related writing. What does that mean so ended up as a copywriter at a startup. incubator through. Ace venture ops part of mit stanford v latte so. So i was helping out these different startups helping them with the proposition and writing copy for them but allow me to then learn about technologies. Well so got more interested in in the tech space Join a little startup. There was doing some video streaming completely failed so when that story ended it was time to get different. Jobs ended up in customer service really as a quick job doing social media for kayla dutch airliner. So fire go into airline and customer service. Exactly so that's it doesn't get better than that and the company though is involved there with see x. company which was a chat bot company Acquired by siham a couple of months ago so i joined. cx company and Day were doing still virtual assistants whereas like you and a so. You'd ask a question they probably would not answer The old school things on a website and all of a sudden like everybody wanna chat bots and got interested in that and became more conversational. Cx company at the time didn't really know what that meant for the content. Their clients had no idea what that meant. And for me is like i always wanted to write dialogues and know from fiction writing understood. The technology understood the service space for me. It became very logical to actually focus on that problem. So i started doing this freelance at a bunch of clients and then i met my co founder and they had a an agency and behavior design so they were a psychologist thinking really about how people interact with products designed design for certain behavior and made a ton of sense. Because they were already doing stuff with conversational interfaces as well and we really. We realized that if you have a conversation between an artificial brain on a human brain you know you should make psychology and technology equally important in all right and so we. We started playing around with that and we had an agency was called robo copy at the time so so we just got a bunch of clients got more experience about designing conversations Started a little academy which is really focused on chat bots and Got in touch with google. Wally brill that that reached out to us and he really took us under his wings. And explain there's a lot of the fundamentals of voice design and connected with other designers So that got us more experienced gutters to work with you know the best designers in the world and and learn from there and as we went on that journey we really saw that the education was a big part of it So we created the academy and now mission or honest. Really that you see that enterprises are looking for conversation. Designers does lots of people that are actually designing conversations. But there is no alignment job title skill sets. It's very fragmented service. Enterprises can't find designers designers can't promote themselves very well tech companies on the other hand. Don't really know who's going to be using the products and how to design freedom universities at university at the same time note that i have to train people for jobs in the future Don't really know what jobs are so. We really tried to seek alignment now in an industry of conversation design. Therefore for conversation design institute was a name more suitable for that as well. So that's really how. I went from failed novelist conversation driver

Ray thank you. Thank you for having me. We get asked a lot of systems questions while the and i do and there's obviously a lot of maintenance that goes on and i spend a lot of time on the phone. I wish i actually talked to you. A little less ray but We spend a lot of time on the phone with each other and we wanted to have. Ray come talk to all the listeners. A little bit about what goes on in the world of maintenance maybe share some tips and tricks and some things that maybe people should be doing that. They're not doing on a regular basis So ready to get started. Tell us a little bit about you. Your background kind. Of all of your acronyms that are at the end of your name. So we understand what you're able to craft and stuff like that Well my my most of my experience comes from general aviation got about one year airline experience but mainly generally it's about twenty two years now I i have an mp in and i Which pretty much mainly mainly means. I could sign off. Annuals and three seven's does the i. I think it comes up a lot where somebody said. Hey you have to have an eye for that. And i don't think i think people just know of an acronym but what does that really mean it stands for inspection authorization okay and it's it's really not a certificate or license is just an authorization to sign off annuals and three three sevens which are major repairs and alterations Other than that you're. Emp's what you really use. Why does so. Maybe i'm wrong. But i have this perception that very few. Amp's haven't a or not what was a very few have an. I is that true and is it hard to get her. it's it's it can be a little difficult to get For starters you gotta have Three years in the field And you got. It's only a written test but the test is very difficult for me. It is right. I'm not a good test taker but it's difficult only because they just made it that way And unless you're out there doing annuals and actually doing three three seven's you really don't need it. Uranium p mostly everything. You can do If you're working out in the industry and the airline you'll never use the i In general aviation. Use it every day if you're doing annuals and major alterations and repairs Which is why a lotta. Ap's don't get it. I got it. I have to have it because we run a shop. So we gotta sign off annuals and we do. Stc's all the time required three three seven. So that's why i have it And then again you know you got to report to the fa When you have sure how more than you would with ampy sure we. We also share a lot of friends in common pilots both on the field and around the city You have a huge. I would say fan. Following lots of people speak very highly of your work and unease work. Tell people that might not be right here around us. What kind of work. You do how you help. Pilots get their planes back in the air just a little bit in case somebody wants to fly down and have you do their annual forms. Well mainly You know we stay busy with strictly. Piston aircraft We we do so many of them you know we could turn them pretty quick We know all their quirks We know pretty much where to get the parts In a timely manner right and that's that will help keep the airplane flying which is what most owners want In pretty much we have the crew at the shop to do it We have a person that does strictly she metalwork. We have one guy that does you know. It's real good at electrical so he keeps up with the electrical portions and all that combine helps. You know the shot move move a lot quicker And makes everything go a lot smoother in the long run. Saving time downtime and money for custom

And just say a few words before i close today's show is titled making the links links courses in golf happened to be my favorite type of course engine. General has a distinct character. And sometimes there's quite a distance between one hole in the next new players on the course may even get law sp between holes going down the wrong path. Having to backtrack define the next d-box stopping long away. Embarrassed as they asked for directions making the proper lincoln. Life is a lot like that too particularly in your spiritual life. It's easy to connect the wrong dots associated one thing with another when maybe they shouldn't be together at all for wally. This included mistake in christianity. For christ is demanding earthly father for the heavenly father. Once he got that figured out he started making the links that really mattered. He found freedom. He can't keep to himself. He found a loving god who was his friend his counselor and his buddy and a profound and meaningful way. My hope for you today is that you can apply this to your own life. Are you missing key links connecting one thing to another. That doesn't need to be is a possible. The guide you dismissed wasn't the god of the bible at all but a perception. You got from a bad preacher. A painful experience you had with a misguided teacher the judgment you found from self spiritual leaders a church. that was more of a country club hole. Basis for church hurts and is rooted in what we've talked about today. It's easy for us to connect the church with hurt bad experiences and memories. We'd rather forget that. I also know that it doesn't need to be the end of the story. Ask wally ask me. Joseph's scriven was born in eighteen nineteen. I bet you've never heard of him if you heard of him. Wally.

"Years of my life. I was the pastor and preacher. I built churches preached every sunday met with hurting people and try to be the real mccoy. In contrast to the charlatans who seemed to get the news headlines that i never coveted. Sometimes i would get the recordings of my sermons and listen to them. It was a horrifying experience. I was never able to say what i wanted to say. As clearly precisely in. Compelling as i wanted to in contrast listen to gray contemporary preachers who are communicating. The very things. I wanted to communicate. Why did they seem to be able to preach so much better than may was mistaken. In my sense of call to the ministry all my churches tended to grow in numbers and spirit and vitality. Shouldn't they be growing faster. Perhaps if i was more gifted more holy harder working in weiser strategically i would see more fruit from my labor. You know exactly what i'm talking about.

Check Ride Turbulence - Preparing for the Check Ride
"Up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good. This is a show that i think might blow off our top ten charts. Hopefully this is gonna be a new series that we're going to start doing every month called. Check ride turbulence. And that's a little bit of play on the words. Check ride and turbulence but these are going to be stories from flight school owner and a dp to make the check. Ride a little less bumpier to. We're gonna help people smooth those flights out and those check rides out And this week we're going to start with preparing for the check ride. And if you have check ride stories and that is you want us to do as part of this. Check rat turbulence every month show. Let us know this month is all about preparation for the check wally. I'm sure you've seen just about everything in your first four hundred and fifty check rides but on a scale of one to ten ten being the most prepared student that you've ever had that would have been me probably on the instruments. What would you say. The average level of preparation is for a check ride. I would say Somewhere around a seven so not bad right. Just a seventy percent is normally a failing grade right ryan so seven still not really really good right or professional pilots or people who wanna do something partake in something that could be dangerous. We want to shoot for better than seven. Yeah yeah good. I you know it's it it all goes to Preparation and at least with me I have an online scheduling system. If you if you book a check ride with me you're going to get a an email confirmation along with that email. Confirmation is going to be a letter It's the letter is is just over a page long and there's a lot of information on the ladder and if you use that letter. Basically as a checklist. You're gonna be in pretty good shape. I know several of the Other examiners here in houston use the same type of system. Where you you book it online and you'll get a confirmation What what i see is is the the m- farther out in advance that we can schedule a check ride and far farther out Before the check ride the student or the applicant is actually signed off in niagara. The better i would guess that. Probably fifty percent of applicants Before we even meet. I find some sort of missing something or other on the application the iraq application itself and it usually has to do with the flight times There's a little column off her class. Totals and it's Class totals and A lot of people miss that so Maybe it's a private pilot candidate. And they've got seven point nine hours of solo time and Or actually that'd be cross country. Let's say they got twelve hours of solo time. They should have in that class. Totals they should up twelve hours of of of single engine land. Pic time and a lot of times. They they missed. That and those are really easy things to fix. Because as i'm i'm sitting at home relaxing in the evening. I'm i'm looking a week ahead of time and i'm pulling up applications. I'm taking a look at things. And i'm i'm looking at the numbers on these applications and i see that it's real simple for me to go into my scheduling system and send you a text. Say i was looking at your application. I noticed she left out a column. I'm going to send it back to you right now and It's no big deal. It's no big deal. You know. I deal with akra daily I've i've dealt with it on on hundreds of applications and As a student pilot this may be your your second time to really deal with the i. Accra the first time being when you got your student pilot certificate. Now you're working towards your private and even the cfo is Extremely familiar with i acura. So i kind of know what things to look for. I'm looking for to meet the minimum requirements. Making sure there's three hours of inch talking about private. We're talking about parts sixty one Making sure there's three hours of instrument three hours a night time You know a lot of times you will see Then putting in the application that they have pic night landings which most of the time at this point The student pilot would not have that and Unless we're talking about Simulator time solo time plus dual time should equal total time so A lot of times. I'll see You know Tenth errors You know Twelve hours a solo time Fifty hours a dual time and total time of seventy two hours. Where would be sixty two hours so you know kind of make a A mental audit or a quick audit of the times to make sure they make sense. And again i would say probably forty five percent of the applications i yet before i ever even meet the applicant. i find some errors and we're able to fix that so that's probably the first thing and you know obviously if the application is done the day before sometimes it's not as easy to see those errors and then the morning of the check ride or the afternoon of the check. We're trying to fix these things. And i see the anxiety level on the applicant raising as they're dealing with this. They're they're thinking. Oh my gosh. I've made the examiner mad. Which isn't the case at all. I mean i just wanna get it right.
New GPT-3 Models Can Generate Images From Text
"Open a has introduced two new. gpt three models. The first is called clip. Which can classify images and categories from arbitrary text. The second is more interesting. It's doll e which can generate images entirely from snippets of text coding. The it technology review for all gpt threes flair. Its output can feel untethered from reality as if it doesn't know what it's talking about that's because it doesn't by grounding text and images researchers at open a and elsewhere are trying to give language models a better grasp of the everyday concepts that humans used to make sense of things dolly and clip. Come at this problem from different directions. At first glance clip contrasted language image. Pre-training is yet another image recognition system. Except that it has learned to recognize images not from labeled examples in curated data sets most existing models do but from images and their captions from the internet. It learns what's in an image from a description rather than a one word labels such as cat or banana clip is trained by getting it to predict which caption from a random selection of thirty. Two thousand captions is the correct one for a given image to work this out. Clip learns to link a wide variety of objects with their names and the words that describe them this then let's it identify objects in images outside. It's training set. Most image recognition systems are trained to identify certain types of objects such as faces in surveillance videos or buildings in satellite images. Like gpt three clip can generalize across tasks without additional training. It is also less likely than other state of the art image recognition models to be led astray by adversarial examples which have been subtly altered in ways that typically confused algorithms even though humans might not notice a difference instead of recognizing images dolly which i'm guessing is a wally slash dolly pun draws them. This model is a smaller version of. Gpt three that has also been trained on text image pairs taken from the internet. Given a short natural language captions such as a painting of a capybaras sitting in a field at sunrise or a cross section view of a walnut dali generates lots of images that match it dozens of capybaras of all shapes and sizes in front of orange and yellow backgrounds. Row after row of walnuts though. Not all of them in cross section and quote. The results are apparently striking. Maybe not as striking as when gt. Three i got everyone's attention a few months ago in the show notes. There's a link to the open. Ai blog where they show you examples of what this ai can achieve. You can also use the tool. Apparently to generate your own images. Sam altman had it draw an illustration of baby shark in a wizard hat wielding a blue light. Saber and it did it though. Apparently the tool was neutered. Just a bit. So people couldn't produce porn with it still as daniel rack tweeted quote. People think is coming for truck drivers first boy. Do i have news for you and quote and as a laser. You'd hausky tweeted quote. Consider this your notice. If you're a manga artist you have and years left before you're out of a job. I wish that i had any grasp whatsoever of how to relate to announcements like these my initial sense is an equals to wisely adjusted upwards to actually after the end of the world and quote
Proper Radio Communications
"What's walling. Hey bobby great this week. We are going to dive into another requests from a listener Thank you very much to corey. Mclean for giving us this idea. And it's all about proper radio techniques. I'm sure during all your check rides wally. You have heard some crazy stuff but I give me an idea give the listeners. An idea like how much bad radiotechnique dc. There's there's a lot of improper radiotechnique. I think the end of the day that the reason we talk on the radio is to communicate and so we want effective communication And can can. We communicate effectively using Maybe improper techniques we can. So there's there's kind of three levels of of communicating the way i look at it The the top level the the the one that we all wanna strive for. I would think is that we use Proper terminology and we. We communicate effectively The the i'm gonna skip to the absolute the the number three Scenario which is where we don't want to be is improper technique and ineffective communication And then somewhere in the middle is maybe improper technique but still effective communication. I mean i guess if you were in a an unfortunate situation an airplane and you screamed and yelled that you're on fire Maybe the controller may understand your predicament and Provide the necessary. help where you know. Obviously there's a better way to do that. rather than screaming over the Which i've never heard by the way But as what. I see as an observer and that's what i am as an examiner at an airplane. I'm an observer i'm not a crew member i i am not really even a pilot I'm just observing the check ride and making an evaluation. I see a lot of of applicants speaking to air traffic control and As i'm sitting back. I'm thinking well. They said something. But i don't think. Atc really understood what that person is saying and And you need to you know as a pilot we need to pick up on the fact that maybe. Atc didn't really understand what i was getting at or day didn't understand my request one example. I always give to applicants from. We're talking about this. I say okay for sitting in this briefing room. And i tell you that there's a bomb on the table and it's going to explode in sixty seconds I would expect the reaction out of you would expect you to maybe get up and run out of the room and i'd be right behind you But a lot of times we will say things their atc an atc will will respond But atc maybe didn't really get it sometimes. We have to read between the lines. So the i think the most important thing is effective communication. And there's all kinds of accident cases where there was not effective communication. Where you after. The fact We had an accident here in houston a couple of years ago with airplane running very low on fuel down at Hobby airport and Again after the fact we all listen to it and later everyday saying how. How could the controller. Not here in the voice of of this pilot that they were running out of fuel while the pilot never really said they were running out of fuel so bottom line is effective communication. And that's what we're we're trying to effect here is is communicating effectively between the pilot and the controller. The and i think when we get the request online to to talk about proper radio techniques. There's there's a that that could be. It could be many many shows. But we're gonna try and take some what. Wally sees someone what i see around the fly school every day and share some techniques. That will make you better on your communications and give you some best practices to you. So we're going to kind of talk about some guidance at a high level. And then we're gonna share some best practices and then we'll wrap it up and we're not just taking this from experience that there is a very crisp. There's chris guidance on how to use the radio right so we're gonna reference a section of the aim. Which is the article information manual. If you if you if you talk about or heard of the foreign name there really two books. I think when. I was a student pilot maybe even a private pilot. Maybe even an instrument pilot. I thought the foreign was one book. While don't i guess. I just told everybody knows but i thought it was one book but it's really two books. The aim is the back and it. It's really good collection of information.
William Walley on how he started the "World of Walley" podcast
"William wiley I am Starbuck podcast world. Wally back around in january. First episode drought January twenty seventh of this year. The question most everybody either. Ask me when i first started our has asked me saying is oh says the pandemic you're looking. You have plenty of time on your hands so you want to start a podcast. Now is not the answer to that question. I actually had had the concept of starting a podcast for the last three or four years. ah just could find time either of job i had or some other obligation kept me from doing it so i had conceptualized the actual podcast theme and and to count what i wanna do for quite a while The sad thing was when i finally convinced myself to do it. let's see my in december of between the wake of christmas and new years. I had a birthday card. Fifty years old. And i thought that'd be perfect time starbuck guests with little fanfare and even less preparation which showed early in my in my efforts us for sure i started a podcast. My i i guess. It was around the fifth or sixth to january. I started looking into executive what it would take to actually start one. And then like i said january twenty seven drama first episode which was a tribute to. I'm green bay packer fan. And it actually was attributive source and an account of a i guess a revelation of a situation that i should have probably handled a little differently after i heard an interview that aaron. The starting quarterback of the green bay packers defeats with his girlfriend. Dan patrick on her gas. So i took that opportunity to craft an episode It's fond from Of national personal interaction. I had with rogers a few years back a certain job. I had a worked in phnom of them of security in staffing stuff. Like that and i was actually over a contract university of mississippi commonly referred to as ole miss. He just happened to show up on on an off week to see his brother who was Join rodgers was playing vanderbilt quarterback and he thought he was just go show up and be a regular fan and that didn't work out too well so i ended up having to make special arrangements farm. Get him away from her. By so the rest of the people could enjoy game. And he ended up on sidelining. He ended up in my office and him and his family for about an hour and a half after the hoopla game kind of died down and people started exiting the stadium. You know it's christmas for me. At depth point. I had an hour and twenty minutes. What a guy that. I've watched on television and using the word idolized in how to use. The term hero used the term hero when it comes to a sports stadium. I don't i don't wanna give him that much. Power heroes are big block Ponders and doctors and help help people and save last. That's heroes was christmas for me. I was thousand key He and i chatted. And if i would have had any idea where his mind was about some stuff that talked about podcast specifically talked about his issue With his faith and and he's got a question in his face and if i would've known that i could step in and you know maybe said something or are provided him information or are just been a good solid ear. Listen to and helped him with that but i had no idea that time. That's kind of the whole premise of that episode was reflection on. If i were null. And what. I heard him saying that podcast. Maybe i could set or done something to have been at moma. That was episode warning. It just took off from there.
How Biden's Diverse Economic Team May Impact His Policies
"President elect. Joe biden introduced today. His team tasked with rebuilding this devastated economy. Four women including janet yellen his nominee for treasury secretary and three are people of color. Wally will be yellen. Deputy near attendant is his pick for budget director and cecilia. Rouse has been chosen to chair the council of economic advisers but what does the gender and race of the picks saying about what kinds of policies they may put in place. Our next guest has some thoughts on that. She is a communist. Lisa cook and she served as an adviser under president. Obama and she is a professor at michigan state university. her work is focused on the impact. Racism has had on holding back the economy. Good morning good morning so yellen ten rows of work to increase worker earnings and reduce racial and gender discrimination. The economy for example. What does that signify about the priorities of this team. It suggests that the biden team has a really good grasp of what is happening in the economy. Not just in the pandemic konomi but the broader economy and the more long standing Me and that he is made a priority he's he is prioritized The the wellbeing of all americans so interested in the aggregate but in the distribution of income and well being in the economy. That's what it suggests to me. Well you're talking about inequality essentially yes. We mentioned the diversity in these appointments. How much does that matter. It matters a great deal. One of the things Janet yellen has said and certainly said is chair of the federal reserve. The first woman to be so that the financial crisis was actually a result of not having enough Lived experience in this diversity of lived experience of the economist who were judging the data related to the crisis so it says to me that we really need people in positions of economic policymaking who have different types of lived experience you have different backgrounds who understand the data from many different perspectives. So they're maybe trained trained some little but it's group think that can That can impede us from understanding Economic and financial crises so given that she really pushed forward on diversity efforts at the federal reserve when she was a chair and before. That seems to me that this is a really important priority for economic policy-making Let me ask you a bit more about this. You've written about this extensively. That representation matters that teams with women on them for example are more productive that having diverse leadership allows for more creative solutions to problems. But isn't there some sort of magical thinking when we've seen that simply having a black or brown person in a certain job translates automatically to more equality There needs to be systemic change. So what do you see happening there to sort of change. What we've seen so far. I bet you're exactly right. It is not a panacea. It's not a magic formula. Having more representation doesn't automatically mean that however when people have different lived experience Experiences for example. They can say something like well. I remember my aunt getting exotic mortgage for example during the two thousand eight two thousand nine crisis. And what we know is that black and brown People had many of these exotic mortgages and they were canaries in the coal mine. So if you were watching these very closely he's or more high interest and and sort of not really based on solid ground to prime. That's right exactly They would be a canarian coal. My this would be a leading indicator and this would This would give us an indication of what will happen in months or years to come in the economy so different people with different lived. Experiences may be able to say more about The economy and how it's playing out. How different people are experiencing the economy. This pandemic of course is impacted communities of color disproportionately Not only when it comes to health but also economically. What do you think i needs to happen. And just in a few seconds. The thing that i needs to happen is that there has to be greater Relief that comes to state and local governments Come aid that comes to small businesses aid that is not necessarily in the form of debt but the but in the form of Also in the form of grants And i think that for closure and forbearance relief have to happen as well. There's a lot that needs to be done to address the

"You know before Tony it was kind of a I remember. An eighty one heck was as funny year. 'cause it was strike shortened. What we made the playoffs and my dad didn't even go to Kansas City for the first round thinking. Well we're going to be in the play-offs every year well. He learned the hard way. That isn't that easy And so there was this sort of period of of fallow period after that. Where are parm system had not gotten very good yet and we weren't that good and we sort of came back down to probably not playing over our heads and so bright before. Tony we were. We weren't very good at all and so one of the your point. One of the key factors was Tony. Saying yes. One of the key factors with Jerry. Reinsdorf what he said was the worst baseball decision he ever made which was firing tawny and right and I think one of the reasons Tony did come was the fact that he knew that our farm system was about to become one of the best. And start churning out rookies of the year and I remember that winter meeting before I WANNA say. It was. Eighty seven eighty six. Where just a bunch of things worked and you know from signing a Dave Henderson and Dave. That didn't create a lot of bells and whistles but as he turned out to be one of our very you know and just everything we did from that to the we ended up. This is baseball ball carte stuff but trading for Bobby Welch Radio Griffin and a three team trade which was kind of a new thing at the time and just everything fell in place and from there it just built to then to nineteen eighty eight and we were. We were really pretty good. You might say pretty good pretty good at this. Those were such fun. Teams really must have been a to be part of them do what? What are your favorite memories are or moments from from some of those years? Well Gosh I there too many frankly but well again and speaking of things falling in place how? `Bout you know this guy who was Kinda released day Stewart coming from the scrap heap and we weren't very good and he coming to us. And then Tony. You know pitches him. In his first verse. Game as a manager at Fenway Park against Roger Clemens. He wins that and he never loses a game against Roger. Clements is in Oakland. I think and he went. I think nine and one or eight and one lifetime against clements and the only loss was I think when he was with Texas before that? So that's a memory. I'll never forget. Was that opening game at Tony. Larussa zero with Dave Stewart and And on and on and Bobby Welsh's twenty something game wins in nineteen that ninety? I think it was where and and I remember a game that day Stewart. I mean I remember some of the ones that aren't as obvious. Frankly Susan but there was a game against the red sox a home game that Dave Stewart pitched and he prided himself in. You know pitching complete games and I think that game. It was one nothing game. Somebody like Glenn Hubbard. It hit home. Run or something. And and he. He struck out the side in the ninth inning against the Boston. Red Sox I think one of the strike us with somebody like Jim Rice and I think he threw ten pitches and that and it was electric so those are kind of obscure memories but Or how Dennis Eckersley help us not get too old too fast because whatever the outcome was which was almost always something positive. It happened really fast. Strike one strike. Two one outs two outs So there's just so many it was it was. They were special teams with a really special group of guys. I mean they're you know. I know that Joan Ryan has a new book coming out about team chemistry which I can't wait to read But and they some people will say well if you win. That's you're GonNa have good team chemistry but there's more I believe there's more to that. And they were a bunch of really good guys and think Bob Melvin would tell you right now. He's got to going to. These are really bunch of good guys. Yeah big personalities on on those eighty obviously go there were. Saco and Ricky and they were you know. Here's an interesting facts. We broke the all time. Wrote Attendance Record Record in the American League during that era and eclipsing a New York Yankee team. I don't remember what year that they had the the road attendance record in the American league but we broke it. So as we ended up those guys had swagger they were Kinda rockstars if you will and In some of those games I think they're just when they they. They went on the field. They they had a better chance of winning because the other team felt like they. Didn't you know we've heard the phrase a lot where pitchers when I know this guy's pitching we we? We think we have a good chance to win. It felt that way a lot for many of those games and we have you know. We broke the bay area. I think attendance record at the time before the giants built our beautiful new stadium. Two point nine million. But that's not terrible in the old Oakland Coliseum right and it was because a credit that these these guys were you know people wanted.

But it's nice guy. Dave every every year now and my birthday just for the fun of it. And. Jumped so many times, I can't even get my adrenaline anymore. One. Did you were you a paratrooper in the military or no? I I was all my all my career in the navy. I was in communication vigil communications. You see when the war started? We could not go to radio. And so by breaking the code. We knew where the Japanese were. And we could say a wave. I. I also read that that you were not only Pearl Harbor, but you spent the rest of the war at just about every major battle in the Pacific, right? That is correct. Well, my my discharge says, I was in six campaign Bogo within those six campaigns. There's also other landing so I actually made nine landings and the Pacific. I didn't make them the ship made him and put troops ashore. Lila, my last one was Jim. Jameh? I brought I brought. Back be you know, who. No. Dr germ Vassallo was your first medal of honor winner from Guadalcanal. He was a marine and they took him from there, and he took into the states, and he sold more bonds than any other man alive. But as I was going in to Jameh we stopped at at. To put more supplies aboard. And we took him aboard. He wanted to go back to his unit though, we took him aboard. And we put him with Hewlett, and it will Jameh one and all the first two waves are all dead or dying on the on the beach, and he came in third, and he hollered to his men after he saw let the head and saw the beach was so devastating. How do as men no matter? What you do get off that beach any way you can then. So he got them off. There was over two hundred seventy in group, and he got him off the beach and then five hundred yards inside. He got killed with three more of his men boy. So he got well, why give a person a metal in her death? You know, what they gave him another metal layer? Let me ask you about about your story as well. Because I read why have this right that? You. You you you were married, but your wife is has has passed away. Is that right? Kids passed away. Oh, she passed away and not three and a minute. And just totally she did. But then I jumped in and started taking part in story and told him my story about the Pacific war because right now, I'm the only one that tells you the Pearl Harbor story and the. Well, there's an island there. I can tell you about it. I can set with any Admiral any got. And tell them what happened. They weren't even. Wasn't even alive them the ones sort of today. And so I thought. Do you worry? Do you worry Wally about people forgetting about Pearl Harbor? Yes, I do because I make so many speeches to schools and people and. Gimpo bio. What? And I ask them not to throw those bios away to your your history. Teachers in your school. And what do I do when I get done fine. Fifty. Able blouse Lima's a table. Little people were blessed. No. And I do you bring them. Do you bring them photos of of when you were eighteen nineteen years of age? All yes. Yes, I have about all right over here on my table. I got about twenty five.

He's always been an old guy. He's never they don't. They don't relate to the fact that you are a young strapping handsome young sailor. When all this was happening. That is so true. That is so true. So I don't give speeches took the high school. Now, I give give them to the graduation. They're the ones that's going down in the real world. So I give them Lewis speech. I just think that I I've done a special Pearl Harbor show every year that I've been in broadcasting because I feel like I have a responsibility to keep the message alive is well, and it's the it's the old saying about, you know, never forget never forget ever. What happens, but it's so hard. For us to imagine. Because we go to if you go to Hawaii. Now, it's like you are there. It's it's lovely. It's wonderful. It's full of tourist hotels, and by it's all it's all nice. Nobody can imagine that was a scene of of death and destruction. When people come by my table over there this morning. And I went through over seven I signed over seven hundred autographs and stuff, and I give them all a bio with what happened in ten minutes. I give them till they will know what happened in ten minutes. And if I have a big group standing there, I tell them, well, you're all dead now because it was all over in ten minutes. What do you mean? The bombs started dropping all over this place, and it all blew up, right? Face. You've seen a lot in our country's time of your time in the United States of America.

I felt like I had the flu last night when I was going about, I felt so weirdly sick right sick to my stomach just like sick and every I felt so weird. Okay. Going to bed. I woke up at five in the morning with the pain that I can only like into the exactly the same as when I had appendicitis. Not to. I was on the floor of my bathroom for a little bit that I thinking I was about to throw up. That's I almost thought I was gonna throw up. I really thought I was going to throw up. And I was like in that, like when you know when you're nauseous and sick and you're just like in that movie, you're like, oh, I was like I was doing over and over again, just laying in bed with Wally going on. Oh, through drinks into each other's mouths, like too many times because it does not seem to happen to the to. Yeah. All right, but it was bad. It was real. It was bad for me and I was, and I was like, I was like, maybe I am. Maybe I have the flu. I was like, I'm gonna wake up tomorrow sake. Woke up, felt fine. I mean felt all right. Like felt like to whenever I wake up but like I it was weirdly, I think it was a food reaction and it was, and it was strange. It was strange. I did not. I mean, we ate a lot. There was a lot of food. We ate a lot of food, right. And I will say for me, like I had not eaten that much in a while was not there to sample all of the food that was there to eat large portions of all of the food that I was probably my smallest meal that week. Right. I also heard down at the saloon that there's a case of consumption going around. Oh, Pasadena. Yellow and scarlet fever. All right, let's get right. We did get bit by Rattlers. Part of it, let's get to our ratings. But as we do this, we have our fortune cookies from last night which we did not open. So it's thinking, we'll do this Wally knocked actually Wally knocked to the floor. So I'm gonna take the one that's broken and there was. We can. We can begin our rating you want. You want the Wally, the special. Guys have rules for when you read. And when I was taught weirdly like you eat the entire cookie, and then you can read, I don't have to. You have to eat half the cookie, and then I truly well, I never told anything at all. All right. My fortune is Nick. This is just a fun fact. You'll find a hand-painted bureau in each PF changs restaurant. Each one.
