You're getting good shots. Take your loyal and you just have to continue to take those shots. They will fall Organ State ball out of the time out. Right over Linda out of the far sideline bouncing in the hunt between the circles, honey, Honey, we're gonna get great.

Double teams out front back to write on the West Quarter shot clock into Michael leans in fires agree that's an air ball is shot clock violation, the second already against Oregon State. That boy's out of the Beavers are having trouble just getting into any kind of offense. The emotions of Wayne tinkle on the sideline or so interesting because Previous place before the time out to previous place. He was very upset. They weren't getting the shots and turn the ball over.

Florida state right now, Markey's Kennedy back in for Loyola Tate Hall will sit Johnny Hunt with the dribble out front for Oregon State. Thompson, now left wing on Della comes after set a screen on a foul against Lucas Williams. That's the second against the Missouri Valley Defensive player of the year. That's gonna get Tate Hall right back in Lucas Williams and is gonna have to sit. They rely on Lucas Williamson. A lot front. We gets the headlines, But Williamson is a guy that quarter Moser lows. I just think it's interesting how you want to tell your players do it. You've been doing to get to this point, and you're not going to get the same officials you have during the regular season. There's an inbounds pass to Thompson Little to the right side. We're gonna get to block he'll pull up from three and that one's good. Finally, a three knocked in this one from even top that it's 96 loyal First made three of the ball game. The teams combined. Now one of 11 Kennedy will hand it off the north side of the court strike.

He lost the ball in the air, picked off by Johnny Hunt for Oregon State beavers on the move into the front. Sport, but cut off in transition dribbles left crosses right. Nearly lost control of it does lose control of it out of bounds. Johnny Hunt got a little too sped up in Oregon State gives it right back. Johnny Hunt us understand There's you're not breaking down, anyone. T get into a move. So once you hit the ball, you recover the possession done a great job defensively.

There's more athleticism contest those shots As long as you stay on the ground. I think he's struggling right now. With with Adela on it 96 loyal and 9.5 to go here in the first half, but dribbles over on the left side. Try to get it up Top. Thompson instead goes left side just silver. Now they get it. Thompson High on the way. Thompson slides the dribble over on the right wing. Looking inside.

This guy was lonely and Della didn't come with a warning label said Doctor Daryl Satorius. Allowed himself to be tangled into that web very quickly. Oh, he jumped right in both feet feet first as they say when they got married in nineteen ninety five. He had no idea none who wife really was yes, and I would think is a wealthy man. You do a background check, but he did find her a dating service. So maybe he trusted them and they let him down. But you know many people recognized that something was off about her. She was the pretty second wife of the doctor but there was obviously something really fake they're. Even, her name was a fake because Dante had been born della. She'd been married at least four times before and all of her previous relationships had ended badly, put it mildly some in some very hateful violence and a lot of property destruction. Those mother name is And she recognizes something was different about della since her early childhood. Oga had met Dallas Father Jim when he was stationed in Liverpool England, he was a soldier who's originally from Kentucky. Jim and August. Fell in love and married as soon as they got back to the United States. They moved into Jim's hometown of OCSAR.

Her house had been bombed during World War Two, and she'd been forced to live in an air raid shelter with her siblings for five years. She was sent to North Wales and as a little girl, she watched men with large canvas bags, remove arms, legs, and other body parts from the nearby homes. So she was sent to live in Liverpool and go to Catholic. School. where she was taught how to be the ideal housewife. So they basically taught her baking cleaning doing laundry cooking, her of important things because that's what she was bound to be.

WNBA Finals Game 1 Recap
"Anyone who follows man on twitter knows I'm I'm Elliott born and raised a dire laker fan there in the NBA finals right now? Tonight Lakers went up to on the Miami. Heat Lebron James Scores. Thirty three points with a double double Anthony Davis then your triple-double Anthony Davis it gets fourteen boards on route to a double breese Stewart was the best basketball player on the planet tonight wasn't even close and many NBA analysts would agree with me. This was. Honestly in your opinion, the years we've been covering the WNBA where does research performance night rank? WNBA performances you've watched. I, think, let's say in the last five years. Legitimately and this this includes. This includes all the Toronto stuff we've seen although all the game winning shots we've seen I think. The more dominant stretch from a player we've seen was about six minutes of sue bird. In the suber game. and. That was all so much that was from the perimeter and what brief Stewart does from all over the floor. She's just unstoppable in the post she's unstoppable and she's moving the ball. She's unstoppable from outside I. Think She's the Best Player we've seen blade this. I. A blanket A. Challenge anyone to come at me. If we're going by your five year window, she's doing this in the finals and that's where it matters the most and she's doing it off of an injury last year and I think every team in the league in a fantasy draft of players. If they redraft the whole league I think she's the consensus number one. I mean I believe there was a League's playoff game or Sylvia fells did the twenty, eight, twenty, nine. And that was impressive. Obviously I, think you're doing wholescale. Finals given context late, Adela done pushing her team to a championship on a non-functioning spine. Israeli something. This was a game where Seattle walked in as a two seed but was basically the odds on favourite given the strength and they were really. The biggest thing you needed was were we going to get what we had advertise from the stars you and I have been championing jewell Loyd this entire playoffs you've been consistently calling her future finals, MVP, Jewell, Loyd and. She. Is Hard to yeah. Looked at just her line in the box. Tonight you'd be like we're almost there. But like but but she definitely converted. Sue Bird breaks the single game. Finals assist record was one shy of the record at halftime. And why should we be shocked Meghan Rubino just wrote a player's Tribune column all about it. But. This was also a team up against Vegas team that definitely is is building their bulletin material. They have something to prove they going to hilarious run in the third quarter after being down seventeen at the half, they tied it up with a minute left in the third, a couple Julius free make it a two point game. It's a one basket game heading into the fourth quarter of finals, and it's at that exact point to restore. Basically said guys, why don't you go ahead and take a seat? Mama's got it taken care of she scored the first eleven points of the quarter and I don't mean the storms, I eleven points I mean the first eleven points of the quarter end you know that because espn was some real nincompoops and put up the graphic. That had fourth quarter points brief steward. Eleven. Las. Vegas. Aces zero as if anyone needed to know she categorically took over the game I mean this is the classic like great player mentality of. I have figured out the two three things I absolutely need to do and I'm just going to do them, and if you think you can stop it go ahead and try. But I know what I'm dealing with here and you brought up the context the ability to do that after. Technically. We're at this point for the storm twenty, two regular season games plus three semifinal games plus this she's twenty six games still into her WNBA. Return
Social media censorship in Egypt targets women on TikTok
"Has its sights on tick talk. It's cracking down on users arresting and charging a group of women with a range of tic tac enabled crimes from harming family values to inciting prostitution. Reporter Jod reporter Dad, Kaleel has our story. At least nine women have been arrested for their tic tac videos. But if you look through their accounts, it's hard to see why. And focus most ofit here. There's Henning has, um, talking about the story of Venus and Adonis and Adela doing what social Media influencers do Giveaway iPhones life living room doing, But mostly the accounts of the Egyptian women who's been arrested and jailed are full of dancing to Arabic pop songs in that tic tac style feet, planted emoting with your eyebrows and gesticulating. What they're doing is basically what everyone as 1000 social media, just singing and dancing and Andi thing and nothing as if you would dance. In Egyptian wedding. For example, some of Husaini is with the International Service for Human Rights based in Geneva, Switzerland. She says. What distinguishes this group of Egyptians is that they're from working class or middle class backgrounds and that their women or girls, you have social media influencers who come for a teeth, backgrounds or upper middle class or rich classes and injured who would post the same type of content. But would not be targeted because that is sort of permitted within their social class. But why these women are working class women they and they have stepped out of what is permitted for them because they were dancing and singing on tech talk. They were charged under a cyber crime law passed in 2018 Yes, Mean Omar, A researcher at the top here Institute for Middle East Policy in Washington, says that the law is vague when it comes to defining what's legal. And what isn't. It was written using very broad terms that could be very widely interpreted and criminalizing a lot of acts that are Originally considered as personal freedom. Looking at it. You would see that anything you might post on social media. Anything that you may use, the Internet could be criminalized under this very wide umbrella. Egypt cybercrime laws, part of a larger effort by the government to increase surveillance of online activities as Tic TAC became more popular during the pandemic. Prosecutors started looking there too, says Omar. The state is simply arresting whoever says anything that criticizes its policy its laws. It's practices, even if it's just joking. It's not even allowed. But this isn't just about political dissent. Yes, mean Omar points. In the case of mental Abdel Aziz, a 17 year old. One day men made a live video on Facebook. She had her face awfully bruised, and she was stating that she was raped. And she was asking for help. The police asked me to come in. When she did, Omar says they looked at her tech talk account and decided she was inciting debauchery and harming family values in Egypt. Over the summer, There was a series of rape and sexual assault accusations by Egyptian women. They got a lot of attention. One case was against a group of well connected men. Women in Egypt were shocked but not surprised by what they were seeing online, says someone who's Amy in Egypt. Sexual violence on violence in this woman is systematic is part ofthe daily life off of women and to be sexually harass women are often discouraged from reporting sexual harassment in Egypt. So when prosecutors started investigating the accused in that high profile case, it looked like a real progress. The state run National Council for Women even encourage victims and witnesses to come forward. Oh, yes mean, Omar says it did not go well. Somehow, the prosecution decided to a charge the witnesses once again. Egyptian authorities looked at women's social media accounts and then investigated the women for promoting homosexuality, drug use, inciting debauchery and publishing false news. Omar says one of the witnesses who was arrested is an American citizen. All these information were used against them and then pro state media how let's wait in. Husseini says that when they profile the women in the TIC tac case, the message was clear. You have the Egyptian me they're basically, you know, really sensational headlines, Putting the photos off the women Not not not blurred using, you know, focus that have sex it Ian, for example, while using their names, publishing the investigations that are supposed to be confidential. Social media has played an important role in Egyptian politics. In 2011 crowds toppled the regime of military dictator Hosni Mubarak. That uprising was in part organized online with Twitter and Facebook. In 2018, the former Army general and current President, Abdel Fattah el Sisi swore he would maintain stability in Egypt must You said whatever happened in 2011 is never going to happen again. Samir Shehadeh of the University of Oklahoma, says Egypt's military backed regime is wary of the implications of anything posted online, even if its just dancing I think there has been heightened paranoia as a result of hysteria, in fact, by subsequent regimes, particularly the current regime, the Sisi regime About the possible political consequences of social media. And there's a tremendous amount of policing a Facebook and other types of social media and now tic tac. Although this is not apparently an overtly political, I think that they certainly have those kinds of concerns in the back of their mind as well. Of the nine women, Four have been convicted and three have appeals in October. Menon Abdelaziz, the 17 year old, who called for help online was just released from detainment Wednesday and is being dismissed with no charges. For the world. I'm Jagga Khalil.

Already has relationships with foreign governments. We don't know which ones yet here this could evolve joins understanding is this is going to be formally announced later this year, of course, we know in that cloud infrastructure intrastructure market Amazon. Go head to head in two thousand, nine, hundred Amazon control about fifty percent of that market and Microsoft and told about fifteen percent of it. Microsoft shares no ticket high here in the after hours Brian Back to you. Right up one point, four percent just thank you very much. All right. By the way for more than Microsoft's cloud feelings, you can head over to CBC Dot Com read more about that story that Joshua's talked about from our crack team. They're more yet another stock not as not not as superlative as apple, but certainly has been a monster of a moneymaker. Well. If you look at a five year charter Microsoft. Better chart so. The turnaround there that started a few years ago under such Adela has been all about the cloud has been all about enterprise like Microsoft teams is going to be taking market share. There's there's a major argument that you. You'd be buying that selling zoom as you look to to even just where I think some of the big tech giants will probably push around companies like zoom. So Microsoft is is as far as I'm concerned. They are the other company to be talking about in in this world of of Mega Cap Tech. This is the multiple that is you know depending on what you think you should be paying. Thirty two to thirty five times is that cheap? Well, they are taking market share in the cloud. There's no question that they are beginning to to really dominate but as your. Gaming is a billion dollar business and Microsoft clearly is is navigated the the regulatory environment. The irony is, of course you know. Back, in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, they were the ones that really started this. I think this focus on big cap tech and they're the ones that seem to be navigating best right now. Care Certainly. So be cared quickly go back to you talked about Apple Peter Lynch model like I love my phone. So I'm GonNa Buy Apple you don't hear a lot of people say man I really love that outlook. Oh, I couldn't live without excel. Zoom player I'm kidding on that one there an enterprise everybody deserve. The same kind of a French in that a consumer is going to or maybe more. Well, I. Think your point's well taken that in this environment where a lot is driven by narrative and. Just getting that attention of the so-called robinhood traders Microsoft isn't necessarily that exciting, right but look at the business that had has it's got great contracts coming up in contrast to Amazon. It appears that it's got kind of the tap on the shoulder from the government to go out there and get these contracts. I mean the government talked about them buying TIKTOK. That's a that's an acknowledgement that Microsoft has got a bit of a regulatory governmental tailwind to it. I agree ten listen it's it's over maybe it's over valued it. It was my pick few weeks ago when I did the fast pitch or whatever that thing is we did and I one and I'm still riding high from that and I would still apply Microsoft.
Interview with Rough Translation host Gregory Warner
"Hi and welcome to the PODCAST Brench Club podcast. My name is Adela and I'm the founder of PBC today. I'm so happy to be joined by Gregory Warner host of NPR's report translation a podcast about the things that we're talking about in the United States are being talked about in some other parts of the World Hi Gregory thank you so much for joining us today. So rough translation is a favourite among many podcast ranch club listeners, and we've actually included episode in a listening less. We did last year called looking for love but for those who aren't familiar with their show, can you just give us a little bit of an overview? Sure sure. We'll. Our tagline is. Stories from far of places that hit close to home. Our original tagline and season one folks have listened back that far was things we're talking about how they're being talked about in other places but both those ideas are. Sort of around the the idea of we're going to tell stories that. Take place in some other. Maybe, some other countries, some other culture that's but but it's GonNa feel close to home. It's GonNa. It's GonNa hit you in some way it's it's not that we're specifically telling non-american stories or it's them and us but just we're gonNA take you places but it's going to feel that it's GonNa hit you personally got it. Yeah. It feels familiar but it's a from like maybe a different perspective. Yeah. So I'm curious about your background and how the idea for the show came about. Sure. So well, let's see so. Terms of my radio background. So I went to Salt Salt Institute for Documentary. Studies that was my. First taste of radio I worked in some local worked at a local station called North country public radio. Up in very northern New York and then after that, I went to Afghanistan So which was not as much of a leap as you think because I went from one very rural area to another very rural area and the stories of actually quite similar in terms of the story of the economy as well as the story of. Loneliness and and and all that. So I spent I ended up spending about two years on and off in Afghanistan. Let's see that was from. Two thousand. Six to two thousand eight. And then I left for a number of reasons. But also because that period two dozen sixty, thousand eight was was you could do a lot of reporting then. That that you just couldn't that was a lot harder to do after two, thousand, eight kidnappings it started in a massive way and then I was based after that in in Rwanda, and also some in Kenya, an eastern Congo. So we spent some time in in Africa again as freelancer and then came back to the US started working for marketplace as a staff reporter kind of learned. Later the art of grabbing tape and making a same day story, which is when I ended up getting the job at NPR's the international correspondent in in Nairobi. Sort of it is a you have to use fast twitch muscles but. What's Nice about that job is that there was also a lot of potential for storytelling feature work. and so he was in in Nairobi actually actually in Ethiopia that I came up with the idea for this podcast country that you've lived in. And it. It came about I mean came up through a number. Probably the simplest story is that I had done a story for for radio lab on their on their episode call translation and it was it was an episode about an incident that I watched that I I was I was actually following the secretary of state then John Kerry he gave a speech and this Ethiopian reporter in the room stood up and asked the question. I remember that episode yeah and Yeah it was. It was like this very brief I mean honestly the whole incident really the question and the answer which was at the end of this conference which I mean in the story we talk about how this there were all vetted questions until this one guy got up because carry decided to be generous in this one moment anyway. So this guy asked this question but. It was it was such a mistranslation around this one word and because of this one word. Secretary Kerry seemingly. Totally. Misunderstood the question answered it. In this way that was very unsatisfying and the guy ended up taking a quite a great risk to to ask this question on Ethiopian state TV. For nothing but it was this opportunity to learn about this one word serious, which has such a different meaning in east Africa.
Bytes and Pieces: Americas Chinese-Tech Attack
"As the heads of Amazon Alphabet facebook and apple were being berated in Congress, last month how many competitors did facebook ended up copying we called it Amazon heroin. Why does bny steel content from honest businesses tiktok the goofy funny video sharing app was having an altogether better time of it. Golden. Do. Not, so much anymore we're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. Thursday the trump. Issued a deadline of September twentieth for ending all American transactions bite dense to talks parent company as well as with. China's second most valuable, Tech Company ten cent with Para companies based in China apps like Tiktok we chat and others are significant threats to personal data of American citizens not to mention tools for CCP content censorship. China's government called the executive orders a nakedly hegemonic? act. By dense is looking for a fire sale buyer for some of its international Tiktok operations and it seems Microsoft is checking pockets. But the administration's zeal is likely to harm America's interests as well as the Chinese tech champions. We knew a band was in the offing at is still everyone by surprise Thompson booth is the economists technology and business editor I. Think most people were expecting president trump to wait until a a TIKTOK deal had gone through to reach a resolution on whether there would be a ban on not and it's also quite surprised that he's gone after we chat and tencent. And the reaction from the two companies has been quite strong. Bite dance has said that it's GonNa fight the executive orders in court. Well, as you say, there had been some expectations around Tiktok by dense. Why? Why was ten cents included in the end? Well there isn't a certain unfortunate logic to this. If you're going to say that you're concerned about Tiktok on national security and espionage grounds, you sort of have to be consistent and we chat has about nine hundred, million daily users in the US and the executive order basically bans people from making transactions on we chat which it's a sort of super APP. That is really widely used in in China and Chinese diaspora what is the trump administration's rationale for these orders? Do you think so the stated reason from the administration is the Chinese government is spying on Americans and hear the evidence is Circumstantial. So the worry is that Chinese spy agencies have stolen massive consumer data sets from various companies over the past ten years. So from Mariot Equifax anthem health insurance TIKTOK has been downloaded two billion times. It's the mother of data sets. There is no hard evidence that bite dance would ever cooperate in such an endeavor but the idea is that if you've got engineers with access to Tiktok by Don, service than the government could lean on them to get the information out. So that's the stated reason from the trump administration. Think that's enough for the American government to threaten to ban the APP. I gather from investors case to buy dance at the real reason is a level playing field issue as much as the spying concern. So one gathered that in particular. Mark, Zuckerberg of facebook has been outlining pointing out to trump that take talk is wildly successful in the US and yet facebook google than allowed into China. It's sort of the idea of why should tech top able to come to compete with us when we can't do so in the other direction? And as things stand now, Microsoft is the evidence suitor for for Tiktok operations at least in a in a few countries what's in it for them? I think for Microsoft is really stunning opportunity on their part. So bite dance reckons that the TIKTOK US asset is worth in the realm of two hundred billion dollars oversee the pudding, very generous estimate on that. So the price being talked about now that Microsoft might pay and that it's on the block for more life fifteen, forty billion. So it's just a real steel in terms of the price. I'm talking to the hottest social media property out there right now it's uses incredibly highly engaged and Microsoft you out of stroke gets into territory of the social, the digital media giants, and it gets a massive data set on teenagers daters the new oil. Attack, there is lots of sketches in the Microsoft just is kind of getting out of its core competence that it won't really know how to get and keep the teenagers. The other risk for Microsoft is just kind getting dragged into the Mile Strom of content moderation and hate speech and all this kind of stuff that attracts more political scrutiny and then regulatory scrutiny having said that Microsoft is regarded as a really high quality acquirer of businesses it generally tends to do it quite well. Microsoft. CEO Sachin Adela notably is currently probably regarded as the best big taxi. Oh so now we've got this deadline of September twentieth what happens between now and then Firstly, Microsoft going to carry on negotiating to try and buy Tiktok we're seeing more suitors for Tiktok on the scene over the weekend the reports that twitter is definitely interested I know that Netflix's on the coolest the venture capital backers of Bite Don's possibly even Disney I do think the likeliest thing is still the Microsoft probably strikes a deal just because it's got the deepest pockets will also be really interesting to see whether Microsoft manages to get more markets at. The moment, it's only going for the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. It's not buying the UK having the actual executive order from trump will create more uncertainty around Tiktok and there's no doubt that it is already harming the asset. It's no joke said, the clock really is taking on that deal and what about ten cents? It's unclear. What ten cents is going to do it's unlikely to try and sell international we chat as by dance is doing with Tiktok. It's possible that it could come up with some kind of structure to address. US concerns. It's a complete unknown how tencent now is going to react but I guess the question is, is the right way for America to get its concerns addressed with a problem with. It so far as that feels completely sort of ad hoc on his whim. Really undermines investor confidence in the US is the place of the rule of law. And there are alternatives and I think there's three main steps that we would advocate versus to strengthen the vetting procedure that's already in place. So the Committee on foreign investment in the US surface that probes should stop properly and quickly. So in the case of Tiktok and musically the US APP that bike dance bought therefore triggering this whole situation, they took two years to start looking at it and then did it in a rush which guarantees Robert chaotic ad, hoc situation. And overwhelmingly, the US needs to tighten up its own data privacy regime. So the reason that tiktok is such. A worry in terms of spying theoretically is that US firms, your facebook's Google's and so on her normalized that the slurping just masses of personal data from Americans. So what's required is a strong federal data privacy law. The third element is displayed to you can do in. Terms of requiring transparency into the Algorithms being used auditing code that's coming in from overseas for now, the question for those two billion or so people who've downloaded tiktok whether their favourite platforms going to survive or whether the current chaotic procedure that has affected, the company will mean it. It's rivals take it over and teens leave. Thanks very much for your time Tamsin it's been a pleasure.
Open Source NLU - Alan Nichol, Rasa
"I mean what we're trying to build with Raza is the standard infrastructure for conversationally I. So the same way that you have these. have no brainer technology choices, right? If you're adding. Search to your stack, you're gonNA use elastic search. If you're working with containers used docker similarly, if you're building conversationally, I use Raza. That's where we're headed. That's what we're aiming for, and of course, if you want to be that level of standard, you'd better be open source, right? So that's in a nutshell, the way it started was that my co founder, Alex and I. Were, building a few assistance ourselves. We had the first couple on the slack platform. We had some people bang for them. And just realize that the developer tools were lacking in. So many different ways, right. So we were using the tools that everyone was the time with a I was big than dial. was called API. Time the review others. And? While we kind of came with his controversial statement, right? So two thousand, Sixteen Fiscal Messenger Platform was opening up. And there's all this high. You know such an Adela, saying the new APPS and I go all this kind of. Rhetoric. And the day before that announcement from facebook, we wrote a posting. We don't know how to build conversationally I yet. Right? Like nobody knows the tools aren't there and this isn't GonNa go very well. And I think that has sort of played out kind of as we predicted, which was that the push came from people wanting to users through messenger APPs right because APP downloads or difficult to get. Wasn't because all of a sudden. We'd stumbled into a great new piece of technology and we're like, wow, look at all the new things we can build. Right. It was very much coming from people wanting to talk to people in Messaging APPs. And so we said, well, look, let's start for principals and think what tools do. We actually need to build great compensation I and what developers need. And we were working with some of these cod products realize that they're great for getting started quickly, but you very quickly also pain yourself into a corner, right? And the other thing as a developer, right? If you're. If, you're building an ailing startup. You're doing something right and every single message that goes in to your application has to go through a third party to get interpreted. It's pretty precarious situation to be as a developer right, and so we built a few things and we decided to hack together own. System, and then we were running this meet up in Berlin chat bots, balls, Berlin meet up. And everyone was saying Oh we're going to do. We're GONNA. Do our own NLP. You know. We don't have time now, but maybe next month something like that. Right, and always you know what he did, and so we said, well, why don't we just open source hours? And then everybody can contribute rather than rebuilding. Thanks. Very. Innocent insight by this was sort of six or eight months after message from opened up and everyone who is still seriously in the space have the same thought which was. I'm really dependent on the service which might shutdown might so being freedom is charging for it. It's not a great position to be in as a developer, and so when we said look, here's an open source drop in replacement for the clouds will the using. Now, it was just kind of the right product at the right time and instantly got a big community farming around it. So that's was kind of where we started, but we'd been working already for. Six months on a better way to build dialogue, and that wasn't ready for Primetime yet, but we'd already been working on that problem which was okay. It's nice to have this system right and you bring in message and you get back and intended some entities. bought. What do you do with that information and you just layer more if statements on one another all the time that be we're going to get anywhere, and so we've been thinking about that problem very hard and. because. Of the success of Razzano you which was the name of the library, I punched it. We decided to go all in on open sourced look. Everything has to be open source. And that kind of set us down that path burn interesting. Very interesting. So came from chat bots that came from a real need in the developed community using these cloud services I, you had wall stability tools, yourself, you open them up, and the rest is history of the community call onset communities been a real real key to success. Right? Right. From the very beginning, the community has built this company with you
Why Microsoft wants TikTok
"We start off with the deal that has got wall. Street. Washington, and the World Talking Microsoft dying and acquisition of Tiktok in this comes after president trump threatened to ban the video sharing APP here in the US over security concerns the president then made an about face and gave Microsoft the go ahead to proceed with the deal shares of Microsoft rallying today. Let's get to Josh. Lipton with the very latest Josh. So Melissa President trump also weighing in here. Take a listen to what he had to say today. Would have closed down on September fifteenth unless Microsoft or somebody else's able to buy it and work out a deal inappropriate deal. So the Treasury of the. Really, the Treasury I guess you say of the United, states, gets a lot of money. So, why is Microsoft interested in Tiktok? Well, it's a wildly popular APP with one hundred, million users already here in the US engagement trends are strong and stuff that users already spent over an hour a day on the APP Tales. Patrick at emphasizes too broad reasons why he says this could make strategic sense argues Microsoft is relatively weak in consumer services with the exception of xbox live gaming service. So Co a delicate immediately become a much bigger player in consumer technology second this is a potential moneymaker in delicate monetize that big pool of fans to advertising business that the company well understands but they are. Real risks to Microsoft's history and consumer focused acquisitions is mixed from Nokia's handset business to mixture. It's live streaming service. There's also the question of focus here and Adela has concentrated on the enterprise market analysts say that has served his company very well and kept him out of that Regulatory Spotlight Melissa back to you Josh. Thank you. Josh with the latest on Microsoft tiktok cloud plowed his business that got Microsoft to where it is today. Guy Me. So if you Microsoft goes down this road of buying this business while it seems like it's the hottest property around in social media does that do Microsoft shareholders? Well? Probably Yeah I mean the market today told you absolutely yes and a lot of people say it style drift and could lead them down a bad road but you know what are we talking about in terms of price tag your I haven't seen anywhere from forty to fifty billion dollars. You probably know better than I and it's it's it's basically rounding. For Microsoft Number One and number two, the move into stock more than paid for the deal. So it's hard not to like. This Mike Real question is clearly I missed that day in college when the US Treasury gets investment banking fees on deals that are done between two companies I don't know how I missed it, but clearly, I did what? What? Exactly? How does the US Treasury come into this equation? I guess it's somewhat of rhetorical question but you know this whole thing is fascinating to me on a number of levels. But the answer, your original question I don't think it's negative Microsoft and the market today told you it's positive. I mean the order to divest is one interesting aspect of this whole affair. Then there's I mean when I read it, I immediately thought like brokers fee Harkening to Donald Trump's real estate days I don't know if he thinks he gets twenty per treasury excuse me gets twenty percent or what exactly the Treasury is GonNa get out of this whole thing Karen on one can only imagine. I have no idea. Maybe one has got. To be in this situation. It really is crazy I don't love the precedent at all. I feel like we're just sort of taunting. China to. have some sort of reciprocal response that I would imagine. We really won't like very much. So I I'm. Kind of perplexed by the whole thing and I mean I don't know what the right Fi is a. The whole thing is. That part is so crazy he did. Trump say either to Microsoft or someone else I don't know I mean. Microsoft can compete with anyone in terms of price. I don't know if there is a possibility of someone else, but I get also Microsoft which sort of want to give it a try why not money is free to them practically, I mean they have cash but if they wanted to do with dad, it's practically free to them. So I know the woman Tiktok doesn't make money, but I still think it's interesting for them to do and clearly guy pointed out the stock market or the Microsoft holders. It. bakes. Well there's two things here on the big kind of geopolitical. If you don't think that the global economy is fracturing at least into pieces than you're not paying attention because that's what the deal the precedents of this deal is number two on the Microsoft Front. I personally. Don't understand why Microsoft would want this the only thing that makes sense if they can get it at a discount because bike dances forced to divest it but I'm not sure I mean again Josh. They don't have a great history on the consumer side. I mean I'm sure guy still remembers the Zun I still have one of those that was an abject failure. Don't know what this does for them. I do it. You know you you lose focus. So for me I don't really like it but you know what? I'm not the stock market and the stock market like ten. This is exactly Brian San Love Brandon Guy. This is exactly why Microsoft wants it because they're not here because because everyone else first of all, that could be a buyer of this is is in Washington under the scrutiny of the government in terms of their social platforms or too big. This totally makes sense I mean think about the business that they just told you about in gaming an xbox and even azure and the fact that ninety percent of the market. Cap Probably is enterprise. That's the whole point. That's why you'd be going after this year to me. This is this makes a ton of sense because they're probably the only guys can step in and buy it at least with this type of ability to navigate both Washington navigate the financials and yes, they are getting it at a beaten down valuation. If you're getting this anywhere from I, don't know seven eight to ten times. Where these guys are in terms of revenue, that's Eba dos gives me e extraordinary and I think it's actually been proven to be. We've talked about on this show why facebook is running scared of TIKTOK. So why wouldn't Microsoft running towards talk? It makes a lot of sense I like it. All right. Let's get more on what this deal could mean for. Microsoft let's bring in is jared Weiss fell jared great to speak with you. You also think this deal makes a whole lot of sense. In terms of the synergies across the consumer business think this deal could enhance for Microsoft. I think at the end of the day, the biggest takeaway should be from Microsoft perspective when you have the ability to go ahead and integrate a lot of the capabilities that tic TAC. TIKTOK has you think about the technology stack that TIKTOK has and it's incredibly sophisticated. So you can then leverage that and marry that with some of the internal capabilities that Microsoft already has on Azure with the second largest cloud service provider the on the planet I think the the capabilities are dramatic. Tiktok knows what you. Want before you even know that. So when you the leverage that with the capabilities of absorb, I think it makes a lot of sense and then to the earlier point that was brought up I think that's actually key. If you then have the ability to leverage that and bring it into gaming, bring that into Cortina the digital search engine, bring that into being I think the the possibilities are significant. So it it certainly makes a lot of sense obviously, the stock market rewarded Microsoft today and you've added more than. The top valuation in Microsoft's Market Kaplan. Is. There a risk though that that tiktok is the next snap in that snap has run into user growth issues and monetization issues or is finding a home in Microsoft good to going to sorta bypass that possibility is outcome. It's a fair point, but you almost have a free call option if you're searching. You have the ability to go ahead and acquire the asset potentially on the cheap, and if you think about it, you've got one party Microsoft, which is potentially the only party that's available to acquire something of this size with with with regulatory concerns, and if you've got tiktok on the other side there, obviously desperate from a seller perspective. So valuation short plays part of it, and then strategically if you think about the ability to go ahead and integrate. Integrate technology into the Microsoft Stack statues getting a free look at not only can potentially accelerate growth drivers of his existing business. He then has a free call option on expanding the total addressable market to go ahead and think about competition versus facebook getting snap. It's ever

"adela" Discussed on Amanpour
"Now. Congress is working to forge a multi billion dollar spending package to fund the US Corona Virus Response and the crisis is hitting it a busy time for house. Democrats who preparing for the massive Super Tuesday primary that will see fourteen states go to the polls on Tuesday. The Democratic presidential race may be shaping up into a battleground between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. The former vice president rocketed to first place offer an extraordinary showing in South Carolina. This weekend a victory. That does a lot if not all to the endorsement of my next guest. South Carolina Congressman and House Majority Whip. Jim Clyburn Congressman. Welcome to the program or thank you very much for having so listen. I just want to ask you first. Are You satisfied with the package that you preparing to deal with this outbreak? You just heard Dr Offit who put it in quite I think. Sort of comforting context but you. Are you confident that the government in all its aspects is rising to the occasion right now? I'm not sure about that. We are in negotiations on the house. Side we're hopeful That we can get something a terms of money to agree on this this week. and We saw dissatisfied A little bit within the Gaucher's since The White House as asked with something in the name of one point two billion dollars. We don't think that's near enough. We would like very much to reach agreement with our Republican colleagues this week and get something in the order of six to eight billion dollars out the door directly on this. Let's move onto to the presidential race. Are you sort of your modest man? But are you accepting the plaudits that your endorsement and your passion you know for for this case really as Joe Biden says basically brought him back from the brink of oblivion well appreciate vice president and all of the Think I had something to do with it. I tried very hard to do what I think is in the best interest of the conference. The country you know a sophomore the issues that we discussed house in Healthcare Energy Whatever it is overarching in this discussion. As far as I'm concerned is what I like to call the goodness of this great country. I do believe that that is something. We take a hard look at not just as it relates to each other inside the country but as we as a country relate to the rest of the world the bombastic kind of attitudes that people bring to the political process is something that. I don't think is doing us in a real good vice-president Biden has history of getting along with people on both sides of the aisle people irrespective of what their stations in life may be. I worked very closely with him For a couple of dozen years I know him very well. He has what I think is necessary to set our country back. On course bring people back together. This country is too divided and is divided along ritualized gender lines class lines. This to me is idiotic. We need somebody in. The White House withdrew step outside of these without call nause alice and onto a stage a bringing people together all right. And that's why I've gone as far as I have with the job. I okay but you've also said I mean he's your friend you you're bagging him that actually his campaign needs to be seriously retooled. You're not going to sit idly by and you've said this and watch mismanagement of the campaign and five Biden sort of you know agreed with you and admitted as much When he was talking on Sunday Programs. Listen He's right about the fundraising but for example just last night we raise five million dollars on line. We've raised about eighteen million dollars so far just this month. Things are beginning to change. And he's right and I to his council and I think he and I listen this council relatives of how I can get better as well. So how'd you think he's got to get better to compete properly on Super Tuesday and do think that you know? South Carolina was maybe a flash in the PAN and it might not re materialize on Super Tuesday. What is your prediction very well on Super Tuesday? I was up in North Carolina last night. I maybe in Virginia later today. I think he's going to do well in North Carolina in Virginia Alabama Mississippi Texas. And I think we want supplies and people in California as well so I don't think South Carolina was a flashing the Pan. I think a lot of people were waiting to see whether or not he would come to life in South Carolina and he did Ah Come to great life in South Carolina and I think That was the LACI PAT. I said in the outset the what I was trying to do is to create a surge to go into fourteen states and I think one of the territories as well so let me. Just move a little bit away from this particular. It's relevant. Obviously Joe Biden was in Selma over the weekend for the bloody Sunday Commemorative March of fifty five years ago. Your great friend and congressman and colleague. John Lewis had his skull broken fifty five years ago when he was actually at that March across the bridge and here is what he said he went there. Despite the fact that he's battling stage four pancreatic crisis and he went there and gave an impassioned speech. Let's just remind of you what he said this weekend down bridge somehow and someway God Almighty we cannot give up. Now can I give in keep? The faith is on the prize squad and vote like we never voter before always the civil rights leader and really going out there to use this as a political to two people to vote. What how did you feel emotionally and politically watching him? Make that effort given his his illness. John Lewis and Have been friends for over fifty years. We first met in October. Nineteen sixty when we were working together forming what became known as the student. Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Snick John and I back then never ever word or feel fearful about the country. We'll always apprehensive about whether or not we were doing the right thing so I understand why he says we never should give up. We got to vote as he said like we never had before because he like I fear for today I'll talk to John. A Lot We sit on the floor sometimes and reminisce. We talk about how we went out to challenge the system wondering whether or not we were doing the right but never fearing that. The country would respond in In the proper way today he is faithful. I'm fearful I talk to people all over my congressional district. They are absolutely frighten. Wonder whether or not this democracy will survive and we are get an active in this campaign because we think that there are some ominous signs developing in the political process. That we've gotta get engaged. We gotta make sure that people go out and vote. Bhagat to restore dignity to the White House. We got the floor the respect around the nation that this country has lost in recent reason days. And we've got the restore hope and faith in the American people congressman. Obviously John Lewis. Just explain what you're saying. People must come out and vote like they've never voted before but that requires is inspiration and as we've seen this democratic race the most inspirational candidate has been on the democratic side Bernie Sanders. He's the one who's drawing the massive rallies on the young people huge Latino and Latina votes. What do you think do you think no matter who wins on Tuesday that it should become a two person race? Do you think the others if they don't get at least a certain ratio should follow. What may Buddha judges down and pulled out and pull out of the Super Tuesday I think after Super Tuesday everybody I'll take stock. Everybody will look at for their stand. What needs to be done with? Our Party. Needs to leave Go into this cap then and how we other reactive each other. I don't know that we should run the risk of staying divided all the way up to the convention go to the Convention and have a real knock down drag out fight. I've been to those. I remember nineteen seventy two. I was on the convention floor when we had that kind of a fight and George McGovern was nominated and a lot of people felt very energized After that process but we lost all but one state. What we've got to do is think about what is trying to do. A respective of where you are on the spectrum what would be as John said In his speech cheap your eyes on the prize and the prize is the White House. So let's not lose sight of that right. I think people are looked at the results in South Carolina. Joe Biden won all across the board. The stuff about he cannot get the youth vote he got the youth vote in South Carolina. People are inspired by him. He may not be the most inspired speaker. But here's the record. That's the most inspired and that to me is what really matters. Okay I have to ask you one last brief question if it ends up a two person race and then if it ends up Bernie Sanders. Who is kind of the McGovern that you're talking about and raising that Specter? Will you support him? And Will you get people out to vote like? They've never voted before if he's the nominee absolutely is head and shoulders above the current occupant of sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue. I don't believe that we are in dire need of any better candidates. I just believe that when it comes to who is best suited to take on the current president. I just think as Joe Biden all right. I think there are other people who suited as well. But if I got a guy who I think two or three points better than the rest I'm going with the best. Okay that's all right congressman. Thank you so much for joining US tonight. Burnt you forever now. On Saturday. The United States signed a deal with the Taliban that it hopes will finally end America's longest war in Afghanistan this the president trump. We are going to be leaving and we're going to be bringing our soldiers back home. We've been there for almost twenty years long time. We've done a great job in terms of getting rid of terrorists.

Haunted Places Rewind: Island of the Dolls
"The grandmother told us to stay away. We snuck down to the canal again. It's our favorite place to play. I like to tease the little fish. That swim in the Muddy Shallows. Adela likes to weave reads to make a crown and pretend that she's a princess. Sometimes we wrote to the island. Adela always stares down into the water like she's looking for something. Grandmother does not like the river. It's curse. She says evil then she scolds me for leading my little sister. Danger Grandmother tells stories. While we make tortillas sometimes she talks about her ancestors who built a huge city on lake hundreds of years ago other times she tries to frighten us with sales of spirits who live in the water. These stories don't scare me. They aren't true that Adela believes every single word. She likes grandmother's stories about mermaids. The best grim says that sometimes the mermaids choose a special person someone with the blood of the ancient Aztecs to join them. Adele asks if we have Aztec blood running through our veins but grandmother does not answer she hugs us makes us promise to never go near the river at night sometimes available sit on the shore and stare out at the water. What I asked her what she's doing. She says that she's listening. She can hear our ancestors whispering in the wind. It's a secret. She makes me promise not to. Tell Grandmother. I listen. I hear nothing odd little sister. Yesterday Papa came home from the city. He worked there and we had not seen him in a long time. He brought presence. I got a soccer ball.

I hugged her promising that we would sneak out early in the morning to go look for her dog. It was still dark when we tiptoed out of the house.

Microsoft plans to erase its entire carbon footprint since 1975
"Microsoft announced that they plan to fight climate change with the gold becoming better than carbon neutral by two thousand thirty and they WANNA retroactively offset all the countries emissions from its entire history by twenty fifty. You know how I've been telling you. Wall Street subway cares about sustainability. Well I think that's part of the reason why mcso Stock Rally Free Bucks today. The Times they are changing cubs great track records investors a fortune in recent years so they now have the leeway to take a stand so a few moments ago. I sat down with great Sachin Adela. He's the bankable CEO of Microsoft in his first ever appearance on the show. Take a look so real reminding okay and we gotta talk about because this is a day where you basically redefined this company and became what I think is the capitalist leader doing something. That's maybe more important than than just earning per share. You're doing impact per share. Why I what thank you for being so awesome to have you here on campus? You're absolutely right. It's a big day. A in fact it's I would say a big decade in front of all of us and today's start. What is I think about our mission to empower every person in every every organization on the planet to achieve more the fundamental thing is? Let's put more depth to what achieve more looks like for the world to who us. It means we need of course as a company we need to be able to drive brought economic growth but it's just on economic growth. But it's about really having that core inclusive growth trust in technology and all that we do should lead to a more sustainable work and so today's announcements were that last part which is commitments rear making by twenty thirty to become become carbon negative. Do we in fact go back in history all the way to our founding in nineteen seventy five look at all of our energy consumption from electricity and other sources and and make sure that we recapture that and of course. We're also know that it's not just about what we do. It's the ecosystem and the innovation. We need breakthrough so even putting a billion dollars in an innovation fund. So we're very excited. We know it's a small part quite frankly. All of us remember to do to achieve more but unless assured small out twenty fifty. If you don't do these things what does it mean for both the planet and of course for Microsoft I mean the signs that think at this point is very clear if the the temperatures rise I think the impact. It's going to have unless talk about the economy. The economy all enjoy or the capitalist system that we all arleen joy. I think we'll fundamentally jeopardy if the planet which is the resource the factor of production that has fueled all of our capital else capitalist. Society will be dangerous to me. That's the existential priority. And for us as a company for now it is all about making sure the commitments is the start off then ensuring that we are living up to those commitments. So I think it's really twenty thirty twenty fifty that we're looking forward to doing part your rigorous stanton. Your company is rigorous about numbers. This is the first time I've heard anybody lay out an actual let's say yardstick. That's hard and it's not just for your company but your suppliers and even for the users of your technology. How can you enforce it? And what does it mean when someone says you know what the we're not playing ball look. This is not the first time we've done these things first of all. You're absolutely right. We have to be rigorous and it's not about making commitments or making claims. It's about fall through so for example when be changed some of the benefit policies Just say that anybody who works at Microsoft even if they are a vendor will get yet the parental leave or sick leave. We had to pay for it from piano because we fully expected that the companies that are employing these these people are probably not going to be able to increase wages. So in some sense we have account. We've done our homework. We know what our emissions are in both on all the scope scope one one two and three and we feel that. We've had a bottoms up plan on how we go about it. We were one of the things that has really helped us is the carbon tax which we introduced multiple years physicals has built an internal rigor sort of speak on. What does it mean hard to actually have a way to think about an accounting for carbon and then go after it go a little bit bigger than carbon you care about other values including carbon artificial intelligence? Many of us are worried that it can be he used for harm. Not just for good. You're thinking about what technology will mean. I've been talking about tech intensity city ice here that and I say I'm concerned the text too intense and powerful you walk but largest coming and use the things you're thinking about first of well let's I'm an optimist. Technology can make a huge difference. I mean think about it. It's the most malleable resource that we as humans. I've ever found a software right and to think about. This is a factor of production that changes in a precision medicine. Precision agriculture feed every body body right or connected cars connected factories. I think that this is amazing. If the technology in terms of computing is getting embedded in the real world artificial intelligence for example. I mean think about what the state of the art of whether it's reinforcement learning or this what we call multi modal large scale model training. It's essentially helping US discover new knowledge. That is not possible even before. And I'll take somebody with disabilities today with breakthroughs in computer vision for someone with visual impairment. They can interpret the world. Someone with dyslexia can read because of what I can provide. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't be clear eyed about the unintended consequences of let's say technologically driven unemployment or bias in any algorithm and so we have to counter onto that so take bias first of all we as a software company a building tools. Just like how we build tools in order to ensure that people don't have security bugs in software. We should say if anybody what he believe in the model how can they D- by the model and by the way the team we've learned the best reader debiasi modest have a diverse team building it in the first place. He's suzy so smart. And you won't be able to track the diversity unless you do some things we're talking about at the same time that you're doing all these things. You are a competitor. Now you have different styles from your predecessor. Who was oh golden? Good friend of mine from college. You are a cerebral lead by example person. But you're also competitive and when and watch your National Retail Federation piece. You mentioned it's Walgreens. You mentioned Walmart starbucks. Those are three gigantic retailers. You're still you're in a titanic battle against another company to get those customers and you also offer value position that aws. Doesn't I care about that. Tell people I mean first of all. I think what's happening in retail. It's pretty exciting. I mean if you think about it everyone. Twenty nine thousand nine has sort of realized that. What retail is it's about Omni channel retail? So you need the physical stores you need the online presence but most importantly you got to connect the two things seamlessly one of the things that I talked about was what how Walmart is completely changed. The game came around. How they're doing delivery so you can order my groceries? I can start going to the store. It given the geofencing features their I o t Essentially inside the store wakes up. Make sure that things get back fresh and is really for delivery. So it's the best example Walmart taking their physical assets that digital digital capability and we're partnering with them. Same thing with Walgreens what they WANNA do. Even for chronic care management like diabetes or what marks and Spencers is done by essentially taking the store and making it a computer embedded computing. So this is one of the fascinating thing is people places and things are increasingly having digital twins this and since a digital infrastructure is more malleable. You can predict things. Automate things gain insights are like unprecedented raised. How'd you Guinea's Guinea's Azure when I saw you last? You made bold claims. I said at the time of how much money you could make with Azure. You've vastly exceeded them. Even as some of us were pleased. Who is this man? How did you see it? How did you know and how much of the future will be quite frankly? It's sort of the guy who gave me permission to do all this. Well Steve Bomber. If you think about it he wanted us to be bold and go at the cloud very aggressively. And that's what we did and one of the key things Jimmy did was. We didn't even think about azure separate from Microsoft three six five or dynamics three six five or now even xbox live or ex Ex Club we had a vision AFL Europe computing infrastructure structure and platform company. What is that next generation? We and by the way I was always grounded on the fact that it will be distributed computing infrastructure. It's the cloud doc and the edge for example. One of the fascinating. Things is is to talk about the edge. In fact I even started talking about the cloud and the edge probably four years ago and people say. What's he talking about except for now? It is conventional wisdom. That's what it takes. I think you have to have conviction on where the world is going. Make sure you bet long before anybody gives you credit credit for it and then of course execute and that's what we've done in every layer of the stack the infrastructure level platforms of service SAS layer. And that's that's what we're doing. Do you think that the marketplace will continue to pay as much as it does for your perfect execution for instance stop four hundred and ten percent return since as you start one point. Four trillion dollars will be some executives at major foreign firms funds. That say you know what I'm not going to buy that stock tears too much much about these things war will. The world changed so much that if you don't care about these mandates you're stock's GONNA go down. It's a great question. I mean you know you and I were talking before we got on the air which is You know there's this great book by Colin Mayor Called Prosperity and he talks about what is a corporation ration- and the corporations purpose is to find profitable solutions to the problems of people and planet. Okay profitable is the key would but problems is the other keyword for people and planet I so I think what happens is if you're creating a lot of profit and cree end creating more problems for for planet or people. I think it'll catch up with you so in some sense the way I look at it and say. Hey let's go after the core of what we're doing it's not about carrying about a funeral. Well things are shareholders. I always saying our shareholders are the ones who are giving US permission to be able to think about whether it is the affordable liberal housing order. That it's the carbon it's our shareholders who care as much about this as anyone else and they permission and therefore we are accountable to them to execute execute on these commitments. We make and that's good for business. It's interesting look twenty. Eight times earnings one of the highest both sort of the highest multiple for any of the plus one one hundred hundred billion companies because they want you to have that permission other issues in tech that use spoken about that are. Let's say on a hot griddle right now. Privacy Apple versus the Justice Department corporations upholding things. That aren't necessarily the constitution. There's nothing about privacy. Obviously the constitution sadly I think versus a government that is intrusive once again. We've got situation. Government wants coal you know. Coal government wants intrusion. Corporations corporations want privacy. Where do you come down these first of all? We're clear that both things matter here. The two things being privacy as a citizen as a user. I care deeply about privacy and as a citizen I also care about public safety right so both of these have been balanced and I think we have to come up with legislative mechanisms for that things like back doors and so on just bad ideas but like the cloud act which is a completely different carell. Today is actually a good first step in terms of having the legal framework for how we can in fact protect the privacy of anybody anybody who has data in the cloud and yet have the ability for any law enforcement agency to issue legal warrants. So we now have to have a technical technical and a legislative breakthrough around what is considered personal information. That's not in the cloud and so. I think that this is something that we will have to work out.
Larry Page steps down as CEO of Alphabet, Sundar Pichai to take over
"Eight. Melissa Larry Page stepping down as alphabet. CEO Sundar Pichai become CEO of both Google and alphabet in terms of the day to day. Unlikely to see major changes. Which is why you may not be seeing a lot of change in alphabet so that stock after hours now under the Google umbrella remember Pichai ran the establish businesses advertising cloud android software devices and he has been NCO since August of two thousand fifteen and since then alphabet sock has certainly sword relative to the broader markets but it has underperformed? It's big cap tech peers. Here's now since the company's financial restructuring remember split from into alphabet and Google alphabet became the place where the company's moon shop projects objects have lived. That includes waymo driving cars to drones Internet balloons and it's healthcare projects so perhaps guys the question now is what happens to those. Money losing initiatives will we see more financial disciplined under Chai and CFO. Ruth poor at who comes from Wall Street and has been known for more financial disciplined as page steps down. And does he also step away from those moon shots as well. That division again loses a lot of money and those traditional businesses like advertising pay for them. Melissa our ideas your thank you your Bosa been treating over this news up when it broke. I don't know half an hour ago or so. Karen what do you what do you make of this. I well I think it. It shouldn't be a huge change. I mean this is a very big my largest position actually. I've not really concerned about this. I do think due to talked about maybe more financial all of discipline I think we started to see this when they brought in report which already goes back for years and then we wanted to see more clarity and so they they they split into two and then we actually wanted to see a little movement on the balance sheet and they addressed it they could have done a lot more but they start to address it so I think they're doing all the right things just shows how important having a good succession plan is. There's still get to something like Tesla you think What is the succession plan? But I think they've done a very good job as investor. I feel like this is going to be not very much of a change. I think five years ago seven years ago. I think this is a much bigger deal. I think it's actually on the margin positive thing I think. Sometimes you need need a fresh set of eyes to current point report came in this stock. Thirteen fourteen fifteen stock meandered for long time. She came in. I think the stock was either side of six hundred dollars ars. It's never looked back for all. The reasons cited financial fiscal responsibility. And I think a new set of eyes is probably good thing them walking away. I don't think it's negative. I think of anything that's positive. Seventeen percent EPS growth traits twenty three times. Forward earnings seeming. Listen I know. It's not a blockbuster overstock but you look at it. Slow and steady wins the race for Google and I think we were with a whisper of all time highs. We actually might be making all time highs. We speak caresource. You're a couple of great points on twitter as she normally does on that Pichai was already in charge of Google Youtube for some time That page and brain have been sort of a wall with their own interests and they also still control the company. I mean to factor through through their stock. It's a dual class structure. So they still have control effectively. The company great points and it makes you wonder whether some of this has evolved out of the politics that the companies facing certainly there are headwinds on the regulatory side. There's enormous I tell. went to their core business and talked about that. I mean the control of costs whether it's through the tack costs or the cat backs. These are things that in. The last quarter of investors have become quite quite comfortable with what the company's been doing if anything that the secular businesses alive and well Google cloud is growing is going to be a major business. You worry about the regulatory maybe this is the guy you know. Maybe this guy to take them out of the limelight because they are the founders. They are the icons they are are. They are major major players in the politics of Silicon Valley. And what goes on beyond there and I think maybe this changes the tax a little bit and maybe this as the CEO position this opens up the opportunity to really go into a whole focus of where they really are because they are spending money in certain places. They're not everybody's always all that excited about so the reality is are they going to be spending more and putting more into you cloud. I think that is where they need to go. And I think they're moving in that direction I think they got the right. CEO and when you talk about financially fiscally their spending habits and everything. That's something. I think that much ruth might be able to step up now and really put in more dividend. Well Yeah it all this talk about free cash flow with just about every big company that we talk about on this desk all the time. And what are they doing with that and obviously a lot of acquisitions over time I'm all that type of thing but yes something like that Mel which I think would make a lot of sense. Look at how well that's worked for the apples of the world Microsoft's of the world forever. I mean that's something they should do. I have a question Russian now that are we going to many questions at many points in time. One particular question at this moment in time and that would be are we gonNA look back at this change angel leadership and think this was to alphabet what Saltine Adela was to Microsoft. I I don't think so why I I don't think Google needs to do what Microsoft needed to do and again there was already some momentum behind that change it Microsoft but Microsoft move to the public cloud everything that they've done to compete but maybe wrestles some of this away from Amazon and Google. I think has been well On. Its Way as we've all talked about towards this transformation it seems like it but I don't think it's the same thing I don't don't think so either because of the fact where has he come from versus where Saatchi and Adela was at Microsoft. And let's not forget. Google is a fine company alphabet to find company. Microsoft soft was not and they needed somebody that's going to transform from where they were to where they are now they hired the right guy. I think this gentleman now can step in there. He and report together can build this into a much bigger company and a lot of ways focused on cloud but that won't be the only focus they still have all these other areas all these other verticals that they bring in money Thinking the regulatory weight off the back of the company. I mean really unleash some bill that would be great. I don't think you're GONNA get for a while. I think to your point that those those two could potentially Them stepping back could ease things a little bit. Every they didn't show up. They chose not to go to Congress. I see if you know now. Now that it's up to them whether or not they would send someone but I mean. Just look at the France you know what started our tariff tax write was the digital digital tax here. So it's not a lot of clarity for a while. That's why the stock isn't higher. It's a piece point I wanNA say. It was flattering Microsoft. There wasn't doing particularly early. Well I mean it was sorta treading water with the broader market. He walks into stock. Is probably you know better than I. The stock is probably more than doubled under his leadership which is pretty significant if we have a conversation about. IBM Six months. We're GONNA have that same conversation if this is a watershed moment but with that said Piper Jaffray just in the shade today. Fifteen hundred dollars price target as did city city. Fifteen hundred dollars price target. You know I think on the margins. This is a positive thing. The regulatory aspects these two guys stepping down I think if nothing else probably alleviates Some of the pressure. Not all of it so I think if you're looking for reason if you need one more reason to buy the stock I think this is good
