"Entertainment staff like i go to that trouble to looking at prices and saying if it's on special in a store and if it is generally gonna get it from the store rather than get it posted that's interesting well. I think you raise really point about the prices because one of the other things that department was used to have his Ah malls and general expertise. Say you wouldn't really know how to price the washing machine. You could have gone in men and someone to be explained to you well. This one's to enjoy more because this function and this function index and while yes absolutely there certainly do that very hopefully these days. You can get a lot of information online. You know. that's something that has been completely commodity. Ican said she can look at reviews from all sorts of independent people. Say that nate's bay. That service needs to be so extraordinary enabled to that be selling factor to drag someone out of their home to to go in and but you do make a really good point about about your children. Because and that's what malls. I think need today because i have a chopping. I've got a two year old niece. And i know that. I adore her that even after half an hour. I'm really struggling to think of activities to do with this. I completely sympathize with with needing to fill some time. So if you take them somewhere and there were activities with the kids in china actually. I was there two years ago and looking at various moles and they were brilliant. They all had effectively a childcare. Centers if you wanted to drop your child off and you can do that and go and have like a lovely lunch your friends. They have crept nice restaurants. There you go and get a makeover. All sorts of incredible like tech gadgets to try say they. This was a couple of years ago. And there's a lot of technology they were showing which i hadn't actually seen yet so they were way hidden thames of the supermarkets where you described something and walk out and it's it's already paid for and oh you pick up an apple and a computer pops up in front tells you where it came from. Its way to its calories all the rest of it but the point is that there was stuff i could do there but i couldn't say i was trying as cool tech gadgets and i didn't have a child obviously but if i had i could've left it if i'd wanted to and then picked it up and gone into one of the sort of kids toys enter things so it's less about the function of buying and more about the function having an experience. So you mentioned that in china but the other examples of that there around the world of wising which they've kind of being able to curb the death of the mall by changing the whole thing up yes. I think it's places where they've tried to make it. You know almos- theme park s silage in dubai for a while as well and that was just a decade or two thousand nine am and they had shopping most famously. The one way. There's an indoor scape center so even if you don't intend to shop your go there and you you're gay and then you might walk. Possibly and by the way in any given that population that loves to spend has has a pretty high disposable income on average they do actually sell all of stuff through attracting people through you get similar ones in the us. You know ones that have rollercoasters in the middle of them and aquariums and and again it's it's it's it's stepping away from the binds of the binds almost incidental the bindel mistake a casual. Pick up on the way out Roth than the k. Attraction that's really interesting i was just thinking about. So we're i leave. I've got a number of Smaller shopping centers around but also some big ones. Most of them that i know built with apartments put on top right and it makes me think they couldn't put a rollercoaster in because they couldn't extend up and i wonder if that could be problematic for a number of shopping centers in in capital cities at least here in australia. That's a great point because it probably is not a really smart idea. At the time she got a captive audience but equally. If you're living room there's apartments above. I just said is worse below you. Are you really going to make hiked down and and do the shop yourself if someone can drop it up for free pretty soon timing. It depends on how busy you are. And and how to hear about choosing your mortgage. But i really do feel that as time goes on the the systems about how online shopping happens going to become much more attractive that i actually quite enjoy going to the supermarket. I once we cried android going around looking at what. We want to muslim special. The rest of bit. They'll come a point probably where he just becomes really silly not the jewelry times. We'll get shorter. The quality's great allies get busy. So i think that that could be prevented if you do want to change the shape of the structure or what. You're doing the moly mutations you have including lots of tenants above you could could could certainly be the problem. I have loved this conversation jimmy. It's been so good to think about the shopping center you know. And and the mind boggles as to where. It's going to be even in ten years here in australia hype that it continues to be a place that we can go can shop making enjoy and that people were employed. Because you know the economy's in trouble at the moment and we need to be spending our money locally so what i guess before we asked the question. What should we do shopping centers. What would you encourage them beta consumers about their relationship with the shopping center. Yes i i think i could paint a really positive going to because i Ross greenwood who. Who does my job my job for a long time at channel nine said that if your finance business to because he just too many things that you just have to get cape bait and we choose which is what i do but i think there's a really positive future i think besley there are many some will shot. Yes but an experience. You'll place implies that you're going to need more people working neck to give you a really special experience right like you want something special to happen when you disneyland. And you'll special every seconds because you bump into minnie mouse and then you push a geological and the same shopping. Today we can walk in someone. Says what are you looking today. Here's some things you can do. Hey can i do your makeup for you a hey would you want your child to come and look at this balloon twisting fair. I think its potential to have a lot of people making it service. Heavy and which i think would be very positive for jobs and it in terms of creating. It requires a lot of brainwork to companies creative ideas to to attract people in. You can't just keep offering the same thing day after day after day. Which is another problem moles. Know the heavily change westfield doncaster looks to be honest more or less the same as now then. So that actually. That's actually a big effort to to create an experiential place that that really cases and to provide an incredible experiences. And to that that i think is different from a from a job perspective. The other thing. I mentioned quickly as i had a really interesting conversation with the chief executive of zip code which is by pay later and businesses like after an. He said what they're working towards in general is making shopping seamless. So you don't even notice the a shopping it'd be like when you order neighb- up it comes you go do your trip and you you don't need to get out your wallet. I look for change to them or anything. It's just don so if you could walk into a mall. Anything you pay for is just automatically ordered editor account. That's pretty attractive. as well. like what one of those have pain points the lazier and lazier. We get is going our wallets and getting out the kaden figure out which card and johnny cash or do that sort of thing if you could just walk in. The whole experience is automatically charged oversea central to spend a bit too much. If you're capital it. That that i think something else as well as if they can make these just a great fun day out rather than sort of hassle experience of having to go and buy something. Go through the logistics of purchasing lugging out to your car execture. Then that something else. They could work towards excellent. I love those ideas. What shall we do about shopping. Centers jemma okay. I don't think there's any use in propping up model that doesn't exist. I think if we don't feel inclined to go to shopping centers because they aren't offering what we need. That's a good wakeup call for them. To innovate and i think that's what they should be doing. you have a chance to give fe. Backer tell them. Tell them what you want. You know we we. What would you get out of bed for thinking about like what would you go to a more for. You know. i'd go to meet friends. I would go to be helped if i needed..

"And then. If you're not attracting footfall it's all about for ora. Like how much foot traffic can the molik attract leads the department store. You can lose a lot of football. And then he sought losing a couple of other retailers. and then it's just a death. Spiral so is absolutely critical for these moles to cape a really attractive healthy and strong anchor tenant. Which has the ability to to attract footfall in and and this. I'm sure we'll get around this topic later but it really prompts. A racing of pricing like east. Be the case that a mole or really had to do a melena with say okay. We're going to have adjoins here. Therefore we know there's going to be footfall so therefore we can charge you this right nowadays. It's getting harder and harder to prove that a department store has that star power to drag in two dragging customers. And i often think about the fact that so my local shopping center is not a huge one. But it's kohl's it's worse and it's going to be w now i don't know if it's one of those big w's it's going to close down but i think about the amount of floorspace that that that shop is it's i don't know how like even if that disappeared. What are you going to fill that hole with. Well exactly and i agree. W near us as well and and i always this. I spread out. I stand there. And i don't know where to find the cushioning said look at all the space around me. Think oh good lord like into starting. It's not it's not crammed shop and well. I think this is the big question right. Like what what can malls. Everyone's been talking for years about making shopping experience. So how do you make an experience rather than just you know the boring prices of going in buying something going again because as we all know we can do that from the comfort of life. So i think what most need to do is awesome selves. What would you leave your house for. You know what would make you get off your cypher. Sitting in traffic go out there And i was thinking about it myself. What would make meager to a mall. And the first thing that makes me go when i grow to be ws for instance when i i know roughly what i want but i don't know precisely cushions. That's actually a bad example. Because i need forty centimeters equities. I can or that online. So that's some online. If i want something. Like maybe a blanket and i wanted to feel the quality of it. You know. he's going to be soft. Is it going to be working machine with loss long. I probably get off my cypher. Go into to test it to feel impasse. An and say how gerbil i felt it was and so i think that that's one way they can attract people is just to have items that are not commodities that actually donate a bit of tactility in a bit of hands on experience but intensive other things. I was thinking i believe for. I'd love to go and make friends for a coffee. Good food good experience. A quite a cool thing. I was thinking is about two weeks ago to into the chief executive of channel seven where iraq and we did a little theater at at the head office so is maybe five or six rows of tens eights across the big comfy chairs screen. I thought this would be a really cool thing to rent a i to sleep it. If you could rent out a little theater get together with twenty of your friends and watch a film your loved and bringing a couple of lines something like that. I would make my say four. So i think they just need to get to be creative in terms of thinking ak what can we do to bring people in to a store and a couple of things. I think he night if that was a great personal shabbat. If i tend up and i knew would walk around with me and say oh actually you know. That color really doesn't work for you. Or i know you've always let your that size with decides actually pitchy better and that. I think it would be worthwhile. So i think there are a few things they can do. So i want to get to more about models around the world that that that have done well Soon but i wanna ask first about the said all these announcements already happening before. Covid nineteen struck. You know and and obviously that's made things worse. Can you explain. Is he's covid. Nineteen gonna write the death of the shopping center as we know it. And what's that look like at the moment absolutely like oh we've talked about. Oh yet is an online shopping. And how they being. Bateman what people say that pandemics generalises way back to the play and and other nineteen thirties. The chicken flu have been attempts to accelerate trends rather than completely throw. You know history off of its course and we've absolutely saying that now. I think a lot of people didn't online shop bits of nervous about the internet. Or what if the seeing arrives. And it's not exactly what i thought it was. What if i buy my groceries online and actually it tends up to be they. Give me the worst banana. So i think people were very reluctant. But if you're full steam two ish you just do it. You like a fine if i get a. Maybe you've been on. Or if i don't eight for a week of course i'm going to just take the risk of the intended absolutely fine and so next time you actually do feel more comfortable doing it. So without a doubt online shopping has become much more widely accepted and once you start online shopping stuff know sam. How much online shopping you do. You buy much online. I'd well not really a do a little bit. So i do my groceries in store and i'd love because i do enjoy two young girls and i like being able to take them as an outing as well during five. It was a bit more. Want to take them out. But now it's easy to do so but as far as i do like to look at prices online especially if i'm buying books or home entertainment staff like i go to that trouble to looking at prices and saying if it's on special in a store and if it is generally gonna get it from the store rather than get it posted that's.

"A cool place to do but i think though is is is probably from the early nineties on woods as something of a decline in the shopping center. I was thinking about the fact that the the most recent season of stranger things and on as a very obscure netflix show but They took an abandoned mole in the states. Because it said in the eighties and ray designed it to be in eighties mall and papal does loved the nostalgia and i think i think it's interesting looking at the way things have gone in the united states. Thinking heyday of the eighties and the seventies at the mall paper go of the mole as much anymore. But we still love the idea of going to the mall. The the memories of it. Yes i think that actually probably struck two chords for people fastly yes the nostalgia of one thousand nine hundred small because you remember that from paradise in the nine hundred ninety s when in some ways life seem to be it's implement does now and that also the whole concept of dead moles is a thing in its own right you have groups dedicated to dead malls. You have photographers dedicated. To dead moles way. It's it's a real crazy people to say an this abandoned architecture you see just. These gigantic spaces of old as shop fronts effectively abandoned cinemas. What would have been a department store. And it's incredibly eerie to look at these type of places but quite powerful. Because you can we the power from education visualize how it would have been thriving thirty years ago so i think stranger things did a very clever thing man by By incorporating those two too hot tugging teams. I found myself a while ago. Going into a deep dive on abandoned moles on the incident. Because you know you go on. The youtube is who go in behind bhatt up doors and windows and a filming through these graffitied and smashed glass everywhere in trees growing in the weeds places. Why is it such a phenomenon. D think for did defined such popularity and. I think it's the air of mystery so if you are someone who can imagine you can think. Gosh what happened to you. You know someone's date here disowned someone by their prom dress. He can just imagine happening. It's also a little off limits. I in many ways our lives so catholic controlled and overregulated these days. And if you can get in and you're kind of on watched and you kind of know you probably probably shouldn't be there. Something might drop in your head or you know. The oldest glacier might give way also and there's probably that that air of excitement. As well said i can certainly say how people like that incidentally completely unrelated but he didn't want interest and that sort of thing that's great instagram account quote. It's abandoned. i'm not sure who is behind. I think somebody in the us but they go around looking at not. Just old malls. Old hari tells old castles. And it's it same thing to sort of voyeuristic look at church. What could have happened there. And just the potential and the mystery. It's it's a really fascinating account to look at. You've already used. the term did moles. It's an official term and it's happened so much so all live at the united states and i feel like it hasn't been such a trained of that here in australia at least not yet. Can you explain why these being such a big change in the united states as far as did moles. Yeah i i think to be honest and without wants to be negative hands horribly coming here and festival of the. Us is just completely over over capacity when it comes to mold so if what they count as as a giant mole is one that has set in amount of what they call gross legible area and and the way they measure how much how how much space there is in any given country is dividing the gross livable area by the number of people and on that basis. The us has far and away the most mall space in the entire world australia. I was actually surprised to find out. He's actually the fed on that basis. Wow head of almost the second. one is candidates. I often with america. it's it's us and even though we have the third worst amount of gross legible area peppis. It's still only half of what they have in the us. So the us is just miles ahead that of any other country in comes to shia space in malls effectively. It's just pure orbit capacity. And secondly you can understand partly as we just discussed like why they were so attractive in the fifties look a convenient. You could drive your car. They could pretty much pop for free. You got range in choice. You couldn't get elsewhere You know you could bump into people you. You aren't going to sail where it was new and exciting and and had an energy about it. How many of these factors still exist. Convenient you can do it from your life enough. Jonah by ingram yourselfer. If you wanna say a friend there's so many other options in their cafes every way you can facetime them It it just doesn't have that pool in many ways. The mole really now needs to be doing stuff. You cannot just get elsewhere. So i think as time goes on. It's getting hotter and hotter as we can replicate so much from the palm of a hand with are fine hotter and hotter for the mole to prove it can entice people in with a very different offering to what you can get in other ways here necessarily. There's been a lot of announcements over the last year's about Big department store chains making changes. And a big w has started closing some stores. And there's still many more to close target has closed some stores. And i believe that there's not to of those stores fit china to become kmart stores as well mar katmandu closing a number of schools. I mean they use a big real estate take is in shopping centers so i think the ones that are closing like those department stores. What what impact is that going to have on the shopping center. That's it sitting devastating diplomacy wax. You're an anchor tenant door copeland contami- if you're a good one and that is generally good big malls a department store so and that's what attracts everyone else in and that's how you can price you know if you have a david jones. Myer price really high. Will you could back in the day. And so the way the landlord is able to attract tenants and such competitive lease rates for tenants is by proving that they're so attractive that they've got one of these anchor tenant so if you lose a department store if you lose a discount department store it it absolutely crushing and You you inevitably say a drain of other retailers. Go and then. If you're not attracting footfall it's all about for ora. Like how much foot traffic can the molik.

"Many target stores being rebranded as climate. And i've read the state's shopping malls at closing down at a rapid right. So what shall we do about shopping centers. And what can they do to not only survive but thrive. Jim acton is finance editor for the seven network and has plenty of insights into the challenges facing shopping centers around the world especially he in australia. Jim thanks for joining me on the podcast. My pleasure it's great to be now. Look you a finance and business editor for seven news busts. Are you also a fan of shopping. Sometimes i think i hate shopping. You know we all say oh. I hate wandering around the shops. I hate searching. But it's always a bit of a trait to get something new something that you really want something. You've had your eye on for a while. So i think the end of the day. I'd have to say 'cause you're not you finance very well but have you always been someone who's careful with money or savior of money. No not at all. I wish i could say that. I was actually said to be embarrassing. Any bought my first house A couple of months ago. After working for twenty two years. Because i was busy traveling around the world Having fun thinking i'll save sense things later on and say i contacted i am and day. I got a nice wardrobe and a lot of experienced it to show for it in my in my mind and lots of nice memories but i honestly sakon over. Haven't always been that pragmatic when it came to mention my own personal finances. That's fair enough. That's fair enough. So talking shopping centers today and Shopping moles is probably why milwaukee nine around the world. What are your favorite memories of shopping centers growing up. Well i think i thinking about this and it's true even though i said i don't really like shopping. I have lots of really fond memories of shopping as a child. And i was trying to work out why that was. I think it's partly because you're young and you had a happy childhood often childhood memories of happy anyway. So you'd time spent with family time spent some of your earliest friends and it's also again a real treat when you're young to get something new. I remember i went to a. I lived in melbourne carpet. Melvin and doncaster. Westfield was on nearest shopping mole for anybody who is listening victoria. And and i remember. I got my fist taped about seven. It was the the kylie minogue tape white cover with her wearing a hat with piled on pylon which was obviously extremely cool in the late. Nineteen eighty s but the three literally remember going into rashes remembers fresh and getting these with money saved up from washing the cough weeks and weeks in a row and just that thrill is is so exciting and then when you get older. I remember as well as time. I sort of rebelled. I told my parents woking taw a local set of shops which is very boring of bakery. That's the thing quote. A bus went to doncaster. Westfield which was about fifteen minutes away and met some friends there and it was extremely rebellious at the time you know. It's the first time. I should have done something like that. Probably seven also and so. Yeah look to really formative experiences from from child which i'm sure many people have as well our time at the shopping center and this is before had a mobile phone because kids in fines but go to the pay phone and like when you needed to be picked up by parents. He you'd prank comb so you have to put money in. I wish i known that chicken sounds right. I'm interested in the history of shopping centers. And now you've done some research into this but what you say. The shopping center had its heyday or the shopping mall. As we know it yet. This is a good question. I i would actually pinpoint to heydays and one i would say was when they really got going. Which was the nineteen fifties fest mall. was launched in the us in minnesota role places in one thousand. Nine fifty. Six and australia was not far behind a door in brisbane. A year later had its first more and that was the first one in australia and the reason they really took off. They were building them of n- aggressive rate wants the fest you got going was because it really and fitted in with the way that the post war society community was developing suburbs was starting to grow people. Moving out of the city's getting more space. People are buying a white goods for the first time fridges and didn't dish washing machines things that we've always taken for granted a lot more people not to mention 'cause so when you have a car and you can move around a lot more and a shopping center really fitted what people were looking for. They're looking for convenience are they will heap somewhere where they could talk. That caused these enormous. Generally free cop hawks with really attractive choice because if you could go on by your washing machine how exciting to go and have the option of multiple different models and also community. You know you have suburbs when a suburb grows for the first time. He doesn't naturally have all of that. Community infrastructure built into a ready made people. Where do you catch up with friends when he bumped into people whether you get a bit of know thrill of of the crowd so i think in the nineteen fifties when they first started you can say how incredibly exciting it would have been as a place to be. I would say the second heyday and was sort of my westfield doncaster era of the nineteen eighties When you had that movie mole rats super. Cool the coolest thing you could do. If you were a teenager was hang out with a bunch of your friends and pretty aimlessly so just wondering around window. Shopping may be food court. If you're lucky you go to the cinema. But i think in those days it was also saying that somewhere quite exciting too often. I don't know how much they do this anymore. I must have been go after shopping. Centers anymore that have a celebrity voice signing something or on stage talking for ten minutes or so and so there were quite a few reasons Then.

You can walk people down that and they can be like yes. Yes. Yes and I've had it with parents, walk them down like Yes yes. Yes. Great. Awesome. Cool. My kids here and then their kids there and their kids making money and their kids making friends and they're like they're more responsible at home and they're like but. Their math level is slipping and it's like Holy Shit like what are you You know it's that it's that emotional attachment to that. And then we have all these parents were like, okay, cool. I can't do your homework. Like I full on don't understand mark. I feel I. Don't want to home school you because I won't know what to do. So you're saying I went through this whole system right here that then left me feeling ill equipped to help my own child. I mean there's so many logical issues with all that kind of stuff and again kid gets past fifth grade. It's impossible to help them it is. Absolutely for me to as a career educator with graduate degrees. Right it is. It's impossible and you know going back to that concept of alternative this this whole way of doing it is only about one hundred. So one, hundred, hundred plus years right before that and all of humanity you did stuff mark is the demand town who is the welder and I'm going to be his apprentice and I'm going to go in and start welding with him and eventually just by doing and being with somebody who knows what they're doing. I'm going to be a welder. It's pretty easy and that's essentially what we're doing. Now to like look start doing start building your business. We're also going to have a team with other people who owned businesses or people that are in your field. You're interested in start doing this. And go by the way weldings really fucking complicated. Is. Really hard. It's really hard. It's amazing that like anything gets done. It's unbelievable. Holy. Totally you don't have to know the science of it to be able to do it. You don't have to know the temperatures. You don't have to know. You know you have the coolest thing down or you just learn those things and you burn yourself. Yeah. That's exactly accurate. Study the history of who is the first welder and who like what date did he start welding and what like none of that matters doesn't matter start welding, right? You know. Give us a little bit of background on the school like a the name of the school, and then how did how did it get started and it was modeled after anything? Yeah. So we are we're actually part of a global network, and so it's called Acton Academy. So Act o n and that's named after Lord Acton. He's the guy that said power corrupts absolute power corrupts absolutely a lot of people car that quote. And so actually started as an MBA program, there's a Master's program and it started in Texas and then the founders of that program said, you know what we WANNA do they had kids, and so they said we want to kind of do a k. through twelve and let's let's figure out how we can do this in kind of a K. through twelve setting. So they set that up in Austin primarily for their kids in their two of my heroes man, they're brilliant human being. So they they're running this in one of the families had to leave. And actually moved to, California they moved to southern. California and then they call Jeff and Laura or the names of the founders and they called them and they said, Hey, you know we don't WanNa do this here to would you mind? Helping us like we'd love to start something up. So they're like, okay well, yeah, sure. You want to do that. Let's let's help and so that kind of slowly became it's not a franchise. It's like it's more like a cross fit kind of thing right where you got all the boxes that have similar language, similar beliefs, similar type workouts but the owners are the ones that are that are really putting their DNA into and say, no, we're going to focus more on. This we're going to do this. They all try to help each other they collaborate around things. Everybody's doing their their you know different things to right. So it kind of grew into this network. So there's there's almost two hundred of us right now globally, we're in like thirty some odd different countries in a really as a network of people who have come some of us from education background some from business I'm like myself from both and we just decided look we want. Plane by building something better. So as model started popping up and doing things, I was actually getting ready to do a Ted talk in two thousand, fifteen on alternative education models, and so I started looking into who's actually doing this well, because I was always the pariah in you know as in public schools and private schools and I'm like, Hey, guys, everybody over here like all all the stuff we're doing is worship like we should be doing something different so. been speaking out about that forever. So getting ready to do this tedtalk. So I started looking into organizations that I thought were doing things the right way, and so that's how I I found acting went out to. Texas watched it watched a group of middle schoolers run a two hour meeting more efficiently than most fortune five, hundred companies, and the adult in the room said nothing the entire time I was there. And I'm like this is what I'm talking about. You know. So gave the Ted talk and then started connecting with them and said look I'd like to become a part of this network I WanNa do this where you know where where I am in and start building out. So that was was about five years ago and took a year to build a community while still travelling around doing fifty sixty keynotes. And and took a year to build that up man and really was like, Hey, we can get ten kids. I'd be great. We start out with fifty five and now we've got a full campus with a huge weightless and just purchased our second campus and sack and we're going to do seven eight nine campuses out here in this general. Area. A school now because of covid stuff..
Xbox Series S and X preview
"All Right Tom. You have just like dummy xbox at your house, but what is going on? You just plastic shells. He's just making videos with like should I tell you the story of week? So. They arrived on. Monday morning and like like I'm grumpy wouldn't say old berm like it and I knew phone and we get new laptop and he does know me I, know that sounds like. And and I'm like I mean a really fortunate position. But like once you've seen so much stuff once visited location. So many times he just doesn't. It's not exciting, right? So He's very me to get sight about technology but like Jane genuinely when opened up the series was like, wow, this is. Not. Excited by a brand new laptop with the latest graphics card a super fast processor and a ton of Ram Beautiful Four K. screed but you were excited by a plastic dummy box of the xbox series. And I don't know why. But it was late is is a deny it sounds really like fan boil some. It sounds like he was like Christmas I was like Oh this is so. Because I haven't seen it before. And I knew other people hadn't seen before. So is an element of that but it was also just like Michael being so small like how did how did they do this? That was my immediate thing was like how like will? It right. They haven't told me anything about it at this point. So they just sent me these damn dummy units and I was just like. BSO The dummy units arrived they respond to be I mean there was supposed to be announcing this thing next week. So there's going to be a bunch of like. Honey. Technical. In Belgrade, sessions where briefings for the press, so they give us the full information so that we'd have our goals like informative for people to read. That's great involved because like it just means that I can explain things better. readers get better pitcher and but then it leaked. So I woke up I can't even remember which day it leaked because it's just been such a week. But it leads at some point. Jews Wednesday. Up, and I was like Oh God like zoo happen, and then like that will C- kick Mike soft intellect panic mode we need to announce everything because everything's leaked. So they like just dumped the whole thing. The experts pricing everything. This is a trend because Google does this now and the thing leaks that just like Oh. Yeah. Okay. That's Just did it with the wing? Yeah. Well, I mean L. L G announces every single practice makes fifty times so. Count. But it's a pattern. We might as well, just announce it. We're done I think I think with Marxist cases that I've been. Flight. Will to years. Alongside bunch of reposes will. But like I think for them, it was like they needed to explain his fingers like the thing suspending. Well, this is the experts series S. His basically a smaller more budget friendly and and let's say less performance. Experts console than the bigger experts series X, which I'm sure most people listening to this probably familiar with Bono and it's basically designed for fourteen Philippi gaming. So like that's I, mean I'd say the vast majority of Mona's out there today that people gaming on the moment. East acton on the TV's and stuff but like this is a pretty good. Sweets book fully Philippi right now, spy from the PC side and. It's like a good talk. And they basically promising a symbol of architecture and all of the next gen premiums from the series. Excellent. CPU cloud under two hundred megahertz. The thing I care about is, does it have the the fast d at the series extras? Yeah. It does but it's five hundred, twelve storage instead of one terabyte. So there are no right. There's no Dr. Discloses all digital. Is Two hundred, ninety nine buffs, which is, which is good. I think it's like that's a pretty impressive for us but this is obviously the the the drawbacks to it. No disks will do diesel prices. If Games are typically higher yields, he can't use use games I think a lot to see Sonia my soul. In some way I'd love to just say my district sorted signing just digitize as well. I think we spoke about that on the way I look at like this series s is I think he's great life. If you kid you place fort like twenty, four, seven in bed, remove ten ADP TV because you haven't spent. Two Thousand Bucks on the Keio lead for them. Surprisingly. Like. I think I. Think it's great for that sold market like having. By that for Free Hundred Bucks and they get the new CPU the new ESA stays below times and the performance overall will be like way better than expos one. Like it just depends how it compares to the to the series x I. Think like they're doing some upscaling stuff for four K. if you really want to touch, it's a four K.. By Donna, how good that's going to be. That misses the point like. Different market. But what is the market for fourteen forty game I mean When you say monitors get it but most people with fourteen forty P monitors plugging PC's into them not consoles I is fourteen forty pm out. So I think the market is really ten API. which which is the TV's. Still turn EP like I would probably imagine the forty percent Stilton apr there at the moment. And I think that goes wildly up when you look at bedrooms and like kids rooms like where you're buying a typically smaller TV and you're not gonNA get e can't even by like a smaller lighter the twenty. Shit Four. K. TV. It's just they just don't exist. Although maybe they do but like. Just don't sell volume and I think that that's the market. That's the market ICS. Definitely. Going for like the MOMS and the POPs the shopping around at Christmas and they want to get their gear console they want to get something this noon and stuff, and these things only gonNA come down in price. So to me the market for the series S is. Why definitely have to buy a playstation because I want to get those games and if Playstation maybe I'll get the best one because I don't know what's going on the cheaper one about they're going to do there. And so if I've done that I still kind of want an xbox because I'm thinking about getting this Xbox game pass thing because he all these games on it. But I don't want to have to big ass consuls my living room saw the the cheaper xbox. I'll get the cheaper xbox to play Xbox Game Pass Games, and then I'll get the more expensive PSI to be like my main console that I get like my kick ass four K. stuff on it is. So blindingly clear which one of you has a child in which one doesn't. Just putting. Very obvious. How your perspectives shifted. Like I would say game passes Tom to your point you the game passes the thing here right? Like, yeah. If this is a Fox for your second TV or your kids TV, then what you need is a cloud gaming service. They can address all the xboxes right. And if you don't have a disk, doesn't matter because all the Games on the cloud anyway and you're just moving licenses around and maybe you're going to get to to streaming games in this thing, will be able to stream the games right like. You kinda see where they're going is these are just sort of client units for an xbox service with different GPS. Yeah. Exactly. It's different. Slight different economic you a bunch of specs and people who've been tweet me thousand times a minute this week. But you can argue a bunch of stuff to the essential differences between the two is the once targeting Larry's Lucien Melissa's and TV's and the EVA's talkative. Okay. Like that. That's that's basically the basic gist of the if you were really simplifier. And I think the cheap one is really gonNA appealed to the experts getting pulse market. Like that. Is Probably the best for you and gave me right now like I. Think it's very. Apple, arcade. Lately, just added a play or that it didn't add it to base expos game policies to the almost see have to you have to pay the all of the xbox names are bad and confusing. And then there's the P. C. There's the version that you can also play it on PC, which now costs more, right yes. Let's give me ten bucks a month by feel like that's I mean if you experts came all that covers you on anyway. So feel like you just. Denies. People go for the old anyway I think. So you've got the the series as the that will call the ten ADP model because I think it's functionally what it is even yeah basically forty nine. To Ninety nine, the series x, which is the four K. high refresh rate. Refrigerator refrigerator model. Model model is four ninety nine, which is actually still very aggressive and my mind and just based on what can do and then experts expensive. The Ninja xbox Game Pass Ultimate Yep is twenty five bucks a month in. Fifteen a month. But if you pay more and then you get a box out of it to write for twenty four months, you you you pay the subsidize. It's like a phone plan. Basically you get you pay a little bit more and then you a paying down your hardware and installments and it's basic. Tech Industry only has one business model which is. And T. in two, thousand and four. Yeah. But right. But that's a killer deal right that she ended up paying less over the twenty four months than you would. If you bought them separately right when you can get either right for the Yup can get the X. which I think is four, nine, nine a month I think. Five month or twenty five, the S. I I see that I'm like I'm just GonNa. I'm just GONNA, X.. Whatever like I am going to do the dumb starbucks, which is it's three coffees Erlich whatever. AM. And that is just a brilliant move for Microsoft, right? Yeah. Basically make an expensive thing seemed cheap even as maybe in the end, it's only slightly cheaper than buying everything out right?
"acton" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Our song Row Row Row. Your Emperor's And my Latin teachers just there. And she's like, Hey, we're all gonna have fun, and I was like, Yeah, Winning would be fun, and we finally arrive at Yale and Every competition starts off. With a lecture where they bring in one of the classics faculty to like, Give us a talk about Roman pottery to get us into the competition mood. That's like the start of the day. And then they ask you questions about Roman history, mythology, Latin vocabulary, grammar literature, basically like everything. Um And so we go to the lecture, and after the lecture, they tell us that they have pioneered this fun new system, a bracket system, where for each division novice, intermediate and advanced. There will be two brackets in a bracket for people who have been to occur Toman before and to be bracket for people who had no idea what they were doing. And we clearly belonged in the B bracket because we've never done it before, and we were like off we go to the B bracket. But the bee bracket would only send one team to semifinals while the A bracket would send eight teams two semifinals. Yeah, you can all do math. After the lecture, they say, hold on a minute. One of the teams from the A bracket isn't here. One of the teams from the B bracket like to join the a bracket. And we looked at each other and we were like eight is greater than one. So we were like we will join the A bracket, please. So we switch and were like high five and ourselves about this decision that we've made, and we skip along off to our first round where we meet our first challengers. Acton, Boxborough. Acton. Boxborough is the name of their school. Just think about that. Five syllables. So many syllables. You know, it has to be pretentious. And they were there team was comprised of a junior and a senior in the novice division, and we're in eighth grade. And the senior is flirting with the moderator, because the moderators just like a sophomore at Yale, so yeah. So he's like, who's your favorite Roman poet, and she's like I like, and he's like all the I love off.
‘Sesame Street,’ CNN Teach Kids About Coronavirus in Second Town Hall
"Former Ohio state health director Dr in the acting was on this morning's CNN town hall for children of October nineteen in the program take before her resignation Dr Acton told children about how superheroes wear capes and masks so every time you put on this map you're being a superhero and you know when kids do that they really keep everyone safe she also told children they should always be honest and if they don't feel well tell an adult doctor wrapped in is also being sued by the organizers of Ohio music festival officials with the bellwether music festival in the country fast filed that suit on Friday saying Dr rocked and stay at home ordering orders banning mass gatherings are constitutional and force festivals to be
Masks have become a partisan issue
"Earlier today. The vice president united. States Mike Pence stopped by diner in Pennsylvania typical campaign, fair and video that event was shown on TV and their other than a secret service guide appears in the back and later a waitress. Almost nobody is wearing masks as far as I can tell no one, certainly not these supposed head of the corona virus taskforce. You remember that. That and that might seem like a small thing especially to anyone who managed to convince themselves, and you'll want to really have to worry about the virus. The reality is that the virus is still here. It's still killing people every day and the more we learn, the more we know, that close sustained indoor proximity without masks like what they're doing in. The diner brings with it a high risk of transmission. Seems the more we learn, the more we learn, that masks matter a lot in many of the countries that are managed to control the virus like Taiwan pretty much. Everyone wears masks. In fact just this week. A British study found that widespread mask-wearing could prevent covid nineteen second waves, not that we're even to the point where we're trying to prevent a second wave here in America. Sadly, we are still squarely in the first wave. We basically plateaued. Twenty thousand cases a day, just under a thousand deaths a day. That is our new devastating normal. We've already lost more than a hundred and fifteen thousand Americans right now. Hospitalizations are surging number of states including Arizona, Tennessee Arkansas South Carolina and Alabama. Two States Oregon Utah have paused their reopening efforts amid spikes. In cases in fact, I'm going to talk the governor of Oregon Kate Brown in just a moment about that to other states with large populations Florida and Texas just reported records for daily highs in new cases, which is particularly striking given that Republicans announced yesterday that Jacksonville Florida is the new alternatively location for the Republican National Convention after officials in Charlotte North, Carolina declared. The event would not be safe there. The safety does not seem to be much of a concern for the President United States amidst the pandemic that is seen one hundred and fifteen thousand people die. Next Week Donald. Trump is as you may have heard holding his first campaign rally since lockdown in where Tulsa Oklahoma, where covid nineteen cases just record daily high. That's right. Officials said the increase has been identified as an outbreak linked to indoor gatherings, okay. The president will be holding his rally at. An indoor arena at the Bank of Oklahoma Center, which just over nineteen thousand people packed in there. As far as we can tell, he's telling his supporters that if they get the corona virus at his rally, it's not his problem in order to attend. They have to agree not to sue Donald Trump if they come to the rally and they catch the coronavirus. At least those people have choice, the president has forced graduating cadets at west point who have been sent home to return to campus, so he can deliver a commencement address tomorrow, which we think will be outdoors, so that's good and can have a photo op with them. At least fifteen of those cadets have already tested positive for the virus. The science here as tentative and unformed as sort of dynamic as it is, suggests our best hope to fight the virus right now. If we want to not have locked down, right, be some version of normal our best hope right now. He's wearing masks, washing hands social, but wearing masks, wearing masks wearing masks. And yet the president and the vice president who extensively want to get the economy back on track and get back to normal, not only refuse to wear them. They have effectively turned wearing masks into a culture where issue and they have stoked this political backlash against those who dare tell us how to stay safe. Here's an example in Orange County California the chief health officer Dr Nicole quick resigned amid backlash and a death threat death threat over in order to wear masks, residents, comparing her to a Nazi and holding protests at her home. This was a scene at Tuesday's Orange County Board of supervisors meeting. I have been discriminated five times in the last two days I have been actually turned away. I cannot go in these businesses without a mask. You're telling me that I have to breathe in c. o two when God gave this body, the ability to extract that from my body, and now you want me to put it back in my body. I have natural rights as a sovereign citizen of the United States by continuing to keep people in masks separated out of work with no legitimate cause. You are kneeling on the next of the people, and you are continuing to act in a thuggish manner. Guys over like really like. You know I mean. Are we talking about this? Kneeling on the next, she compared wearing a mask to killing. George Floyd and it's over. Are we still talking about this? Yeah, we're still talking about it. People are still dying from it, but that's the view of the White House that women's view. It's not just happening in Orange County Ohio Ohio state. There's been a relative success story and containing the virus Republican. Governor Mike DeWine. Has Been a leader on the issue. He credited Dr Acton, who's health rector, the state as a hero for her role, and that included advising government wind lockdown early very early left the state in much better position to reopen. Dr Acton has now resigned amid lawsuits the push by Republicans. And protests at her home where some people conspicuously carried God's. The Guardian reports some demonstrations at the State House featured signs bearing antisemitic messages. That's comparing her Nazi again. Acting as Jewish and one lawmaker referenced her with an anti-semitic Slur. Dr? Amy Acton died her estate through a pandemic and for that she target for Reactionary Idiots. Look it's a complicated world we live in. Complicated time it's not like the experts are all in unison about everything they're not. It's not like this isn't complicated. There have been mixed messages about the virus and transmission about mask-wearing. When they told us not to wear mass February, they were wrong about that and we're still processing data, and they're still all sorts of countervailing balances between different kinds of risks. What we're doing. But we have seen what happens. If there's one thing we know, we've seen what happens across the world. And in this country when leaders just shove their fingers and say I can't hear you corona virus. There's a real danger of politics and political forces overwhelm public health entirely. And we sure as heck should not be punishing health, experts and leaders were crying to help us help ourselves to stay safe and healthy.
Ohio state health director resigns
"Wyatt governor Mike DeWine announced today that Dr Amy Acton will be stepping down as director of the Ohio department of health five as lance Himes who served as past out of interim director to assume that role again as interim director and he has agreed to do that the governor says she will now become his chief health advisor as we enter another phase of the corona virus
How to Overcome your Fear of Sales Calls with Nina Cooke
"What is holding us back? Nina from having more powerful and authentic sales conversations well, the one thing that I found held me back and has held back all my mind is their mindset. They seemed like is all the scary stuff out there? It's getting on the phone and having to talk about your price in your great product, and having to convince someone that they should be spending money with you and this affair about the prospect, saying no than all interested too expensive, or they need to think about it until we think is all coming from the outside, and that's what's scaring us, but actually are thinking thinking. We're creating moment by moment about. What we believe is going to happen on. That sells coal which fills us with fear. And up. What about biggest enemies that we makeup through our thinking is anticipation. We're anticipating house go. At. Such a big gap between US having been warring. How things actually are. When we buy into this big scary worry about how it's going to pan out. That's what makes us feel so scared is all coming from inside of us? Now I do have a question for you Nina de you have Karaoke and Scotland's I'm not prompt Scotland. I live near London Scottish dancing school, but we do have carried okay here. You Have Karaoke in England as well. Good because for me, this is always two quick things to is people across the board? They're scared to make those initial sales calls because like you said they have this anticipation. About how is GONNA go and They're filled with dread so I always tell people hey. Just do one call. Just do one call this week. That's it and what happens is they make that call? Because it's just one it's not like. Oh do one hundred calls today, which is very daunting. They do one like that was actually kind of easy and like to bring it around to like the actual conversation that have with people around Karaoke with this is. If you've ever been Karaoke Bar, you always see. There's like that one person that gets like pushed on stage by their friends. They don't WanNa, do it. They're terrified. They don't WanNa, do Karaoke and then they sing that song and like by the third bar? They are just like you. You, Know Adele? They're out there and they're singing there. Hardaway, then you literally can't get them off the stage and it's just sometimes breaking that ice. Realizing that is not nearly as scary as you're anticipating that it was so for me. That kind of comes back to mindset. So why is having the right mindset? Absolutely crucial for successful sales calls because we can think our way into being okay about having sales cools and taking away the fair, because everything is you know that we're seeing in the world where making up through thoughts and everyone has a unique perspective on the world, because there are seven billion or more unique thinkers in the world. Because! We are able to create thinking because we're the crates. Is Thinking bothered than the some possible thoughts? We are able to change our thinking and it's it's amazing. We have this. Incredible Gift of free thought that we can use to Crato reality and most located. We don't pay any attention because a busy. Reacting furiously to was on outside of US and eat a big sky, and anxious and overwhelmed, and yet we forget we have this amazing palace superpower. When we can change our thinking about anything. It changes our feelings, and it can just bring up so much. Courage and resilience and you'll. Writer is about taking action. I helped my clients to overcome. They block so they can take action in their business because we don't take action obviousness. No can't get kinds simplisafe. Semi. People scared. They're so scared off having conversation because they pay rejection. They worried about getting because when they get no. Those people are selling the services products, and when they get the take it, Brady Pass, nate and they feel that being passed rejected who they are is being rejected by the prospect, and that could fill a berry berry painful. We'll do anything become to avoid that pain. At. That's why we're muddling up. The the failed to sales compensation will make you all up in ahead, and we think he is waded through with buying into the story, but if we would strip that story away at just say okay. What I'm going to do now is have a conversation with this person for good together. That's all that can happen and what we take away. All the meanings that were attached to this means again. No too terrible, they may think. They may think I'm too expensive. I believe with my value, and they believe my value either won't be stocked crazy with these stories around taking a acton. Than, we can easy took US outfit, but we see justice neutral action, which is a compensation. That's all. That's GONNA happen the. Pus might say yes. They may say nerve it fun and they. We're GONNA have another compensation off that. There are plenty more competition going to have when we strip away and just. Look at the neutrality if you lie. Then it will stop making us feel scared because this the meanings for attaching. To the action, thus causing the fan or the actual

Ohio Lawmaker Comes up With Unique Reason Not to Wear a Mask
"I I need to talk about something. Okay okay There is a Gop that's a Republican Yes Ohio state representative by the name of Nino vitale or trying to figure out how you save tally. Batali there. We go If not the correct right way He is Against wearing face masks surprise surprise. He's a Cova Denier And that to actually denies the existence of the virus. Wow I think he's one of those. Yeah I'm I'M PRETTY SURE. This is the guy Anyway he said that these the the stay at home orders during the pandemic and the requiring of wearing masks to slow the spread of disease would violate his Judeo Christian principles. leans heavily on one or the other of me. Judeo Slash Christian. But I can tell you what you want to. I don't to be honest with this one. I don't know which one he's leaning down because it doesn't make very much says one of This is the greatest nation on Earth. Founded on Judeo Christian principles. One of those principles is that we are all created in the image and likeness of God that that's that's in the constitution right it is and he's and he says this image is seen The most by our face I will not wear a mask k. uh-huh because he's covering the likeness of God. Oh I see yeah. He's he's encouraged his followers to defy the recommendations of Ohio's health director Acton He's says it is time to ignore the unelected Dr Atkins orders. Open your counties now before it's too late. This is not based on GIC. This is based on fear and propaganda and every statistical data driven studied done in the last two weeks says Hell. Death counts are low and the models on. This is more like the flu. Saying it's funny. Because I have been just puzzling over. Why of fucking virus could be a political football like how does this? How does the disease where a Republican or Democrat mass going? How is that and what I what I and I read a really interesting article. That actually helped me understand it a lot. Okay which was which basically talked about the fact that if we say yes. Government should be should have the right to and should be taking dramatic action here and and and they're the ones they're the right people to collate the data and make a make not only recommendations but orders based on the best information that we have. Then you're admitting the government has a certain has a certain set of roles and part of that is public health and somehow that's so unbearable to the political right of this country that they would rather just deny everything and just and turn it into this political thing. I hear your own people. You're only like these. Are Your voters if you you want them dead. I guess that's I know I. It's madness I if if it weren't if it legitimately truly was just their voters like if it wasn't going to spread beyond that like if it was just stupid and following them you're right I mean but but it's it's it's everyone else. It's all the vulnerable. It's the people were seriously and also the left right if nothing else. It's like everybody else's like no that's ridiculous and seems like at least in parts of the country. They're getting their way. But then it's GonNa be a fucking disaster and then what the does the system then see the light of day and go. No okay. We can't we can't listen to you. Yahoos right now. The world has turned into like it's not Democrat and Republican anymore it's conspiracy theorists add slash like cult member trump cult members. And the rest of US number them right.

"acton" Discussed on Columbus Concerns
"This is Columbus concerns a public affairs presentation of North American Broadcasting. Here's your host Mark News at. Thanks so much for joining us this morning. Of course everyone is talking about Kovic. Nineteen or the corona virus. We still haven't had any cases reported here in Ohio no confirmed cases as of today however we have had confirmed cases as close as Kentucky and Indiana as the virus continues to spread across the US. Well this week Dr Amy Acton. The head of the Ohio Department of Health was a guest on our low power and Randy morning show on ninety nine seven the blitz here in Columbus and she gave some good advice on Kovic. Nineteen Dr Acton. Thanks so much for spending some time here on the show with us and taking a second how you done this morning good. It's good to be here this morning. Thank you as someone who's really into fitness and health and wellness. I was a little bit you know. Obviously it was a gut blow yesterday as we saw you and Mike. Dewine talking about The spectator aspect of the Arnold being canceled. What exactly went into that in the thought behind it. Well I can tell you know that. That was a very big decision. One that took a lot of thought and I have to really commend first of all the governor. The mayor and the organizers Anybody saw Arnold Schwarzenegger himself spoke This is a hard decision. But as you know they're taking preventative measure It is an unusual and unique situation that many athletes from over eighty countries. There are over twenty thousand athletes. Twenty five two hundred fifty thousand spectators. So you know it is. It is something that the. Cdc came out with new guidance and it has to do with. You know the local capacity to put preventive measures in place. And I can tell you. Columbus public health is one of the best health department in this country and they feel they can do a very very good job protecting the athlete but This is a preventative measure to stop the spread of disease talking about the spread of the disease. Are there any other events that are coming up in the near future that will be cancelled? That are large gatherings Games Blue Jackets Games breasts. The Crew Yeah. I think at this point you know. I think we're GONNA see evolving cancellations around the world you're seeing just to you. Know just athletes without spectator. Large conferences businesses. Not Sending in workers and again. This is something that can help. Slow US passing very catchy infectious disease to each other and I suspect we'll see more of it at this point. You know something like a two hour your kids back while game or something like that is still something where you can take precautions. Wash your hands. Avoid being very close to someone. Who's crossing our sneezing. But when you're talking something. So big as a arnold where people are there for days and very close quarter. That's different but I think you'll see this evolving thoughtfulness as as we see community spread Here soon I'm sure we'll see it in. Ohio is seeing it around the country so in New York City they are already disinfecting the public transit. Are we going to be doing things like that with the code buses and stuff like that? Yes absolutely you know. There's so much that goes on behind the scenes in has been going on for weeks and we work with businesses and hospitals and schools. Getting them tips on how to get ready. How to do cleaning and I WANNA say to people at home regular cleaners work so they can be doing that as well. Okay and so. Let's just go through it step by step so if people are listening to this for the first time how is the best way that people here in Columbus Ohio can protect ourselves against the Cova? Nineteen buyers want folks to take it seriously but not be afraid. This violence is a lot like the flu in. I don't think people take the fluid seriously. They started. We actually have a vaccine for that and people should get that vaccine if they haven't yet but it is like a bad flu experience factious people who are outerly immuno-compromised healthcare workers are little more susceptible to it than the average person. It looks a lot like server. Coughing potentially difficulty breathing but for most people. Most people will get it stay home. Stay home if you're sick and and they'll get through it Some folks that will need to be hospitalized. What you can do. We recommend recommendations. I would make right now. Are you know stock up in case you have to stay home from work On some food for about two weeks. Have your medicine supply of your regular medicine for thirty days. Think things like cold medicines and things. So if you're staying home you don't have to go out to the drugstore and potentially exposed more people think about your elderly parents think about neighbors who alone and don't have how as much as people are afraid. This is a time we can also help each other and that is a message. I really want to get out there. We have more checks On our website Corona Virus Dot Ohio Dot. Gov Washing your hands as boring as that sounds can stop the spread back fifty percent laughing all things. It's boring the coughing and your sleeve. The things were saying actually worked the proven to work so And then just kicking some distance if somebody is coughing sneezing around with lots of tips on how you can prepare the mostly. How can we help each other? Because a lot of people will be more you'll be told to stay at home and rasp potentially if you have the disease for up to fourteen days At this point I'm dreaming of a Quarantine. Wasn't that flex but you know so you know retired. Try to see the positive side of things and and but that's what it will look like for. Most people be like a foolish deadly thirty. Five thousand people died in this country last year from flu and we've had a third A child die in Ohio from the flu. So it is polluted colts in all of these things. Work On all of these diseases so I'm kind of nervous because all the reports I'm reading it attacks the lungs that's what it wants wants to attack the lungs and so it wasn't necessarily do that right. It does the flu actually a lot of times when hostile. I will be for things like pneumonia so it does go to the lungs and difficulty breathing. Assign to look for when you know. That will be a sign that your your disease is worth name should definitely be talking to your healthcare provider. I have asthma so it gives me anxiety. I'm like I can't even I don't want to catch it all because I already have terrible. Longs until you know definitely talked your healthcare provider on that do all these preventive measures. That really will help and again. The flu could do this to you too. If you haven't had a vaccine go get that because again the hardest thing about this new diseases. It'll be a while before we have a vaccine and we're not immune to it so so again you know. I want people to take the right precautions. Corona Virus Dot Ohio Dot Gov and then but but those things will help and and you know your doctor and provider will be there with you to walk through it as our local health departments. The great resources of information on the. I'm so sorry I had to let people know that. Amy Acting is on the phone with us right now. The director of the Ohio Department of Health. So I wake up this morning. And we have one strain of corona virus and now reading reports that there are two strains of corona virus in her spreading around the world. Seventy percent of infected patients have caught the more aggressive contagious. And so maybe that's why people were getting it again. Rumor Kelly. We were reading reports that once a had the coronavirus it was all said and done. They caught it again. Like both the strains here in the United States so there's a whole family of corona viruses. Some of them caused the common cold. And I think that's where that misunderstanding could be coming from. There's a technical corona virus that is a common cold this new type. The Beta class is zoonotic disease. Meaning that from animal to human. And that's what happened in China that happens occasionally with fires as we probably give them to our pets too and talks about that but this virus is a particular strain that again is particularly infectious and and does have you know that Fatality rate of up to three percent again. Our knowledge of it is evolving daily. So you know that's why I know. It's confusing the people that adds to fear because we learn a little bit more every day. That's quite so important to go to good trusted. Sources of information I think that that that people probably aren't being reinfected with it. Actually I think the testing or Swat not being done right or it's not. There's more to that CA. I I think we'll learn more about that. I'm thinking people had it all along. Not Being reinfected in your opinion. How far out is some sort of vaccine? Well you know I don't feel slow but it's actually with each one of these like the viruses that we go through like this eve outbreaks things get faster and faster. It's practically a miracle that they are going to be testing and less than three months. I talked. Science has evolving on this. That we can even test for it will be passing here in Ohio. That is a miracle but the actual vaccine is about a year to year and a half away. There is some hope there are some anti viral sort of like Tamiflu is if you already have the flu. There are some that are already on the market that are being tested against this virus will know in about forty forty five days if it's effective and that would be a great boon to us in this fight against this virus and there's the latest on. Cova nineteen from the head of the Department of Health. Dr Amy Acton who appeared this morning on our ninety nine seven the blitz radio station here in Columbus.

A series of stories from classic Elba, Sundays and studio. Three. Sixty classic album. Sundays is a program of community listening events, founded by Coline, Cosmo Murphy, where fans listened to essential albums uninterrupted on state of the art sound systems for this woman's work were highlighting classic albums by female artists women who have made a lasting impact on music and pop culture. This time lady sings the blues by jazz singer, Billie holiday. It was released in nineteen fifty six to coincide with her autobiography of the same name by this point in her career when she was just in her early forties. Holiday's voice was sounding fragile and warn the toll of a life marked by hardship and addiction. Although the more energetic sound of her earlier records is muted here, holiday still delivers wise and moving performances in this collection of emotional, jazz tunes, many of the songs here became synonymous with her unique sound and persona. Here's colleen. Billie holiday remains one of the greatest jazz, voices of all time and is still easily recognizable to music fans from all generations. She's got them. The musicians and clubs of New York City were integral to the development of jazz in the nineteen forties. Bebop was born in the Big Apple with artists like Charlie Parker bologna, smoke and Dizzy, Gillespie. The nineteen fifties saw the development of hard bop with Sonny Rollins and our Blakey the cool jazz of miles Davis and later, the free jazz of Ornette Coleman, and later John Coltrane explored in downtown, Manhattan venues, like the five spot. But vocal innovator and world-famous Billie holiday with unable to perform these notable. Jaaz clubs in the nineteen fifties as her cabaret card had been revoked due to narcotics charges. So instead, she brought jazz to the mainstream by performing it a major concert venue Carnegie Hall in nineteen fifty six. Nothing. On nothing. She wants said of her style. If I'm going to sing like someone else, then I don't need to sing at all in nineteen fifty eight Frank Sinatra told ebony magazine with few exceptions, every major pop singer in the US during her generation has been touched in some way by her genius. It is Billie holiday who was and still remains the greatest single musical influence on me. She also had a profound impact on contemporary artists, including Jose James, a singer, who is beautifully bridge, the world of jazz, and hip hop for over a decade since the release of his debut album, the dreamer. Ver- dream. Series. In two thousand fifteen chamber quarter tribute album to Billie holiday covering his favorite songs on the album yesterday. I had the blues the music of Billie holiday for the legendary blue note records. When I phoned Billie holiday, it really matched. My teenage angst in a deep way, not in a superficial way. You know, not in like, I'm a loner and against the world. But she showed me that there was a way to feel pain and to transform it into art. You don't have to know anything about our life to feel the kind of pain and tragedy that embodies her music. Holy likewise, British singer. Actress and former cabaret act. Paloma faith rates lady day as one of the most influential artists in her own upbringing on always dry bridge, and this will work out, but lately Acton, just no go. Maybe we'll Noel. Maybe we're not. We got us to relate. How Billy was a unifying force at one of my classic album. Sunday's events might mother and father is taste was always really convicting just the hell relationship, but. But. But this is the one person I listen to in both households. I would say that for me that she was the holy grail of how I wanted to be able to sing.

Strong cannabis linked to psychosis
"International study linking the use of strong cannabis to psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia has raised concerns about moves in the US announce where to decriminalize drug Katie Martin discusses the findings with Clive Cookson, our science editor and Robin Murray professor of psychiatric research at King's College in London. He led the research. So Clive the link between cannabis and psychosis has been suspected for some time is this the first study that proves a link as you say scientists have been gathering evidence for at least fifteen years that kind of this does cause psychosis. The evidence has been gathering strength. I think this study Robin can tell us more about it. This certainly almost nails. It doesn't quite nail it. And there have been people who say that. We're still not absolutely sure I think it certain from this study that use of cannabis typically what they call high potency cannabis such as skunk on the streets of London that causes psychosis. What's less certain? I think and again, Robin will be able to tell us about this is whether that psychosis definitely turns into long-term mental health problems like SC. Sophy Nya, professor Maury. Tell tells a little bit about your study. When was it carried out? How many people were involved in it? This was a study across sixteen sites in Europe and one site in Brazil, we organized things so that all people who developed a psychotic illness for the first time went to mental health services in the seventeen eighty s were seen. So we maybe didn't get one hundred percent of all the people were psychotic. But we're up in the ninety five percent. So it's an epidemiological based study on from that we can work out. The incidence proportion of the population are going to develop are developing psychosis in these different places, and one of the most interesting things was not initially about kind of us was that Britain does not lead the world in many idiots. But certainly leads Europe in psychosis. The rates of psychosis. In south London are at least five times higher than they are in. Southern Italy and in southern Spain. So then, of course, when wants to know, what are the reasons for this? And the second part of the study was to compare are people with psychosis with healthy controls. And so what one does is an interviews them a great lengths and finds out who they differ and the differed in two ways that the people who become psychotic firstly are more likely to be migrants. And this is very well known that if you migrate to an unfamiliar country. You're more likely to be suspicious set of paranoid. And what he did. I'm even me having been in England for many decades, if things are going badly as on the buddy English it wouldn't happen in Scotland. And of course, the other thing is that the host population made treat you badly. So at the keep treating you badly you eventually become suspicious and paranoid about them. So they rates in south London come down from sixty one per one hundred thousand. To forty five per hundred thousand if you take migrants, but they're still much higher than in Italy and Spain and the big reason for this is that consumption of cannabis is much more frequent in the UK and in Holland and the potency of the kindest is much higher. Here. Do you know all suspect that that potent has been rising over the past decade, or so we know it has been rising since about nineteen Ninety-six so old fashioned motto on type of kind of hippies Tuke would have three or four percent of THC tetrahydrocannabinol in it. And nowadays it's running about fourteen percent here we call the high potency cannabis, but that is pretty dilute compared with what you can get in Holland. You can get forty percent or sixty percent you go to Colorado, you can get eighty percent or ninety percent. So it's a bit like when people discovered how to distill alcohol there's a race too high. Higher potency. And in Europe. The highest potency is in Holland, and we are next and in southern Italy. It's almost impossible to get high potency cannabis. So for example, we studied Palermo which is a big city over a million people in southern Italy poor city with lots of crime, but the rates of psychosis. You might have expected in a city like preliminary would be hi there were one fifth of what they are here. And the only people who had ever smoked hypertensive cannabis were healthy controls who'd gone on a weekend to I'm certain right, Clive. It certainly sounds like this particular ingredients in the kind of an extremely important element hair. What he tell us about how the increases or decreases the risk of psychosis. In those who take the drug the key ingredient, which Robin has mentioned is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. And that a neuroscientist would tell you into. Fears with important systems in the brain. And certainly there are good scientific reasons for seeing why high THC might induce. Psychosis is not of course, the only compound the walnut one hundred by chemical substances in cannabis. It's the one that people focus on because it's the mind-blowing one the other one that people focus on is CBD kinda by dial that the right pronunciation, Robin. Anyway, CBD is the benign ingredient, and some people think that it might even have effect of reducing psychosis. It certainly doesn't increase it. And if you look at the low ball promotion of cannabis products, there's really almost a tension between the two I've not seen it put by that before this high CBD products like hemp oil, which permitted as medicinal. And then there's the THC which is promoted as recreational pufus Murray was the scale of the psychosis. How prevalent is in London. And to what extent you think we can pin the blame on strong cannabis? We shouldn't run away with thinking that psychosis is frequent as anxiety or depression in general about one percent of the population will develop a severe psychosis sometime in their life. And if you're taking daily high potency cannabis skunk. It would be five percent. It's a bit like alcohol. Lots of people drink amazingly ten pints of beer a day or a bottle and a half of wine a day and don't seem to come to any harm, but they're still at greater risk of the livered packing up. So it increases your risk. And what we found was that in south London. If nobody smoked high potency cannabis that would be thirty percent less people with psychosis. Which for somebody like me, that's a big deal. Would mean I would lose thirty percent of my workload. Which would be fantastic. Because in the NHS, you don't get paid more for seeing more people that just makes life more difficult. So it would mean we could treat remaining patients very much better in Holland. It reached fifty percent in Amsterdam. Whether it's the most potent cannabis the proportion of people with psychosis, which was done to high potency kind of was fifty percent. One thing that really struck me about the findings was that looking at it from an individual's point of view rodent population point of view, you were five times more likely to develop psychosis. If you're a daily user of hype Acton say cannabis than if you went is that correct? Was it seems an extraordinarily large increase in
