Tuesdays with Morrisey
Finding the Intersection Between Data, Technology, and Sports

Tuesdays with Morrisey

Play Episode Listen Later Jan 10, 2023 35:22


Data science and analytics play an ever-increasing and critical role in sports creating an intersection between data and sports. From making some sports safer, to understanding the performance and tactics of opposing teams, and individual player analysis and scouting, there's hardly an area of sports today that doesn't intersect in some way with technology and data. So, how do all the puzzle pieces fit? That was the burning question on Adam Morrisey's mind. For answers, he sought out a rising sports analytics guru, John Sears. Over a relatively short period, John has made his mark in quantitative analysis, working for HBO's streaming platform, a nearly three-year stint in predictive analytics at Uber, heading quantitative strategy for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and currently serving as a Special Advisor for the Los Angeles Dodgers.Sears joined Morrisey for a lively discussion on Tuesdays with Morrisey on connecting those dots to bring today's sports into strategic view. And strategy starts with oneself; as Sears said, much thought goes into the decision process behind the positions he takes and the value he can bring to an organization. Often, those decisions went beyond salary.“You can't just straight-line every salary for the rest of your life,” Sears said. “It's the experience. There's so much more to it than my earnings over the next two years.”Morrisey and Sears discuss the intersection between data further…● The sports industry's evolving approach to the role of data● Breaking down data and looking for the proper signal to predict performance● How evaluating data is different depending on the sport● Upcoming data analytics technology“These last two or three years, there's this massive wave of what they call generative models of AI,” Sears said. “For example, I still spend a few hours daily writing and looking at code. And I'll have a text editor with a plugin called code pilot. It suggests big chunks of code by guessing what I'm trying to do based on how I start writing. It's eliminated most of the tedious aspects of writing code.”Uber, The Minnesota Timberwolves, KeepTruckin, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are a few big-name organizations John Sears has worked for since graduating Magna Cum Laude from Carleton College in 2009. Sears earned his MS from Stanford University in 2015; He is a quantitative analysis force of nature.

Ben Harnwell, International Editor of 'Bannon's War Room' and host of 'War Room: Rome' returns to Hearts of Oak to give us his analysis of the past weeks doom and gloom in the news, articles and from his social media, and there is plenty to get stuck into including... - The funeral of Pope Benedict XVI. - Vote for House Majority leader in Congress, McCarthy finally becomes speaker after 15th ballot. - Matt Gaetz voting for President Donald J. Trump is proof 2023 is going to be a year of change and standing up to the left. - Broken Britain: Paramedics told to drop patients at A&E even if no beds are available. - Critics say a new media law signed by Zelensky could restrict press freedom in Ukraine. - Biden administration announces nearly $4B in new military aid for Ukraine. - RFK Jr: "Your chance of dying of a heart attack from that vaccine, according to their own studies, is 500% greater than if you're unvaccinated" - Covid in China: Wave of celebrity deaths sparks doubt over actual toll. - Andrew Tate and his arrest as part of rape and human trafficking probe in Romania. In the two years between December 2006 and December 2008, Benjamin Harnwell was engaged in drafting the Universal Declaration of Human Dignity, consulting widely with various experts around the world. This work was drawn to a conclusion on 8 December 2008, when (with Gay Mitchell MEP) he founded the European Parliament's Working Group on Human Dignity (of which he remains Honorary Secretary); and on the same date, simultaneously established (with Nirj Deva MEP) the Dignitatis Humanae Institute (of which he is Director). The Working Group was publicly launched on 25 March 2009 by European Parliament Speaker Dr. Hans-Gert Pöttering MEP (now a Patron of the Dignitatis Humanae Institute). The DHI has since been engaged in launching parallel parliamentary working groups on human dignity in various legislatures around the world, all based on the principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Dignity. Ben was the Chief of Staff to Nirj Deva MEP until the end of 2010, since which point he is now based permanently in Rome, directing the development of the DHI. When involved in politics, he was an active member of the British Conservative Party for over 15 years. Benjamin identifies himself philosophically as an Austro-libertarian, co-founding (with Vincent de Roeck) the European Parliament's Mises Circle, which exists to promote greater recognition of the Austrian School of Economics; he also co-founded the international Right Approach Group (with Patrick Barron), to explore free-market solutions to contemporary problems. In 2002 and 2004, Ben was seconded to Colombo as Special Advisor to Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. H.E. Mons. Sánchez Sorondo, Bishop Chancellor of the Pontifical Academies of Science and Social Sciences, appointed Ben External Counsellor in 2016. Since February 2018 Harnwell, as director of the DHI, is also the director of the Abbey of Trisulti, founded in AD 1204 and National Monument of Italy since 1873. From October 2021 to date Ben serves as international editor at “Steve Bannon's War Room” and host of "War Room: Rome" on the number 1 ranked US political podcast.

At the same time, the whole world needs to drastically reduce its emissions and transition to clean energy – and that costs money, too.

This was the sixth session of the day from our Artemis London 2022 conference, held on September 6th, 2022. The event was Artemis' first insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference held in the City of London and saw more than 240 attendees enjoy a wide-range of sessions and networking opportunities. Themed largely around the catastrophe bond, attendees heard from expert speakers that have been in the sector for years, as well as newcomers with ideas of how to innovate the cat bond and ILS market going forwards. Attendees came from as far afield as New Zealand, Hawaii, Asia, North and South America, Bermuda, as well as a large European contingent, plus as you'd expect numerous London marketplace leaders in ILS and reinsurance. This sixth session from the event features a panel discussion on the subject of London as a hub for catastrophe bonds and insurance-linked securities (ILS) The panel discussion was moderated by Des Potter, Special Advisor, Lloyd's. He was joined by: Lisa Leaman, Head of Division, London Markets, Prudential Regulation Authority, Bank of England; Shireen Gammoh, Partner, Head of Strategic & Financial Analytics, Gallagher Re; and Philipp Kusche, Global Head of ILS & Capital Solutions, TigerRisk Capital Markets & Advisory. The discussion focused on what is different about London's proposition, when it comes to catastrophe bonds and insurance-linked securities (ILS). It also covered opportunities the ILS market may be able to generate through closer and more direct trading with London based cedents and the Lloyd's marketplace.

Nicola Rollock, Professor of Social Policy and Race at King's College London and an expert on racial justice, has a book out, The Racial Code: Tales of Resistance and Survival. in which she explores the hidden rules of race and racism, how they maintain the status quo, the pain and cost of navigating everyday racism and how to truly achieve racial justice. The Crown Prosecution Service has apologised unreservedly to a woman whose rape case was dropped after defence lawyers claimed she had an episode of a rare sleep walking condition called ‘sexsomnia'. In what is believed to be the first case of its kind in the UK - the CPS now says it was wrong to drop the case and it should have gone to court. The BBC followed Jade McCrossen-Nethercott's case as events unfolded over three years. Emma speaks to Jade and Emma Ailes, the producer and director of the BBC 3 documentary : SEXSOMNIA: CASE CLOSED? about why she began following Jade's case. The Home Secretary Suella Braverman has signalled that she may consider giving anonymity to criminal suspects as she feels a “media circus” jeopardises a fair trial. Speaking to an audience of Young Conservatives at the Conservative Conference in Birmingham, her comments came in answer to a question referring to the high profile cases of singer Sir Cliff Richard and Harvey Proctor, a former Conservative Member of Parliament, who were falsely accused of sexual abuse and never charged. Currently, alleged victims of sexual offences receive lifelong anonymity under UK law but there is no law against naming a suspect. So what effect would it have, particularly on women, if anonymity were given? Joining Emma is Lady Nourse who was cleared of 17 counts of historical child sex abuse involving a boy under the age of 12 in 2021, and Mark Williams-Thomas, an investigative journalist and former detective who exposed Jimmy Savile as a paedophile. When was the last time you tried something completely new? After over a decade in the music industry, 4 successful albums, and a Mercury Prize nomination under her belt, Nadine Shah has turned her hand to acting for the first time. The singer, songwriter, and musician talks to Emma Barnett about fear of failure, updating Shakespeare, and learning to act for her debut role as Titania in Matthew Dunster and Jimmy Fairhurst's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's exactly a month since Liz Truss became leader of the conservative party and today she makes her first speech in that new role to the party faithful at their conference in Birmingham later this morning. Instead of the usual honeymoon period a new leader can expect to enjoy she has been beset by adverse publicity after the unveiling of chancellor's mini budget almost two weeks ago. It led to huge market unrest with the pound plunging to record lows against the dollar. Emma speaks to Kirsty Buchanan, her former Special Advisor.

This past weekend, voters in Italy went to the polls for national parliamentary elections. As expected, the elections resulted in a victory for the alliance led by Giorgia Meloni's far-right Brothers of Italy party, which received enough votes to govern without support from the center-left.
