John has been making the rounds on the talk shows this week. He‘s put on some weight and looks considerably older than he did on his last episode.
Actually there are a number of solutions to email spoofing that don't have to do with the SMTP servers authenticating everything.CAN you verify phone #s aren't spoofed, using the existing technology (from the consumer end, that is), also without having to replace MAJOR MAJOR parts of the telephone infrastructure (whether hardware or software)?
In other words, this ALMOST sounds like the "stop email spam by making SMTP servers authenticate everything", which basically breaks all existing email. (I didn't go google it, but there's a common email spam "solution" reply form like that, that has selections for replacing the entire infrastructure, etc..)
IOW, regular phone calls use Caller ID, which as we know is spoofable. 800(and other toll free) calls use ANI, which is a different technology and un-spoofable, presumably because the recipient of the call is paying for it.
I'm not saying I'm against it (either of them), but it's probably a way more complex problem than we think.
If I recall correctly the world wildlife fund and the world wrestling federation originally had a deal where the later could use the WWF logo, but had to say their full name when they used it. Instead they pretty much always said WWF. It was at that point that the world wildlife fund sued.I think wrestling is stupid (though I'm now interested in hearing if a few of the Giant Bomb podcast members who are/were into wrestling comment on this), but I also think it's really stupid that that world wildlife fund sued to make them change their name. Yes I know it happened a long time ago now, but last night's episode mentioned it.
I got an email yesterday that it was new. Not sure how I got on the email list. Since it was already in the guide data I didn't bother mentioning it.Apparently Samantha Bee was new last night. I canceled my recording earlier in the day, since there had been no announcement that I saw.
They don't need a studio for that. One person on a laptop or iPad could do all that. Maybe not as quickly, but it's not hard to superimpose a graphic on an image. Cutaways are just video and that can be spliced in.Anyway, I thought it was great. What I wonder is how they handle doing graphics and cutaways? I guess they send the SB portion to the studios in Atlanta or wherever and they mix that stuff in?
Restrictions in the region just got tighter this week. For example Philadelphia just banned all indoor gatherings and NJ banned gatherings of over 10 people. NYC is contemplating more severe restrictions.I don't know. We've seen Bill Maher and Sam Bee start to do their shows back in the studio.
I disagree about the subject matter as it was all about why the number of new diseases have been increasing lately and what can be done about it.Glad that he's back even though the subject matter for this week wasn't anything that interesting. (Since it's been 24-7 pandemic coverage for the last year.)
One good reason to talk about Tucker is that he is floating the idea of running for President.The Tucker Carlson story became more and more interesting to me as it went (although I have to admit, I knew very little about Tucker Carlson; going forward, I'm going to understand the stories about him that appear in the news a lot better). My first reaction was "Why on Earth is he wasting a segment on this human cesspool?!?" (a question he even asked himself early on), but it became worthwhile, I think.
If you want to tie things together...(It still tickles me that the general John Oliver thread has what has evolved into such a random title...it just seems so...so John Oliver.)
Bill says the main reason Covid is killing people is poor diet and constantly rails at doctors like Fauci for not going on TV and telling people to eat better. Basically a holistic approach to Covid, which probably wouldn't do much.Well, he goes on and on about obesity just about every show nowadays.
