Customer Experience in the Digital Age
"Talk a little bit about this. This idea of towards an ai. I operating model. Obviously a lot of people are familiar with it's on the minds and lips of so many different executives and certainly especially technology executives. But why this topic and why ranted around the operating model aspect of his as well. yes sure. so it's been clear for a while. Now that many organizations are at somewhat of an inflection point in the realm of digital transformation with here are our clients talking about this amongst their leadership teams and we hear captains of industry like tom. Siebel another recent guests on the podcast characterizing the last twenty years as an era of mass corporate extinction for those companies that failed acknowledged that the shifting digital landscape he says something like fifty two percent of companies in the fortune. Five hundred have fallen off the list since two thousand So at the center that's inflection. Point in the surrounding discussions are a lot of digital technologies The one that we've found to be most prominent is artificial intelligence undoubtedly a trend. We've been monitoring and witnessing for some time now however Leading up to our Digital symposium in july. We noticed the the conversation around a it was a evolving Specifically it was shifting from promising use cases in functions and business units to grander scale transformations so companies. Were rethinking as you said. The entire operating model in the name of ai redefining the seems the structure of the organization to break down data silos and standing up in a lot of cases entire Auctions dedicated to identify piloting and scaling. Those use cases that were most promising Symposium in july we survey about one hundred global cio hypothesis and found that. Two-thirds had already spun up dedicated teams or entire functions to focus on identification pilot than scaling of a i use cases and for those who more yet to do so sixty sixty percents that it was actually on the roadmap so this trend originally coined as shifting to a i i buy. Google was getting legs and we wanted to capture some characteristics of organizations that are effectively navigating the shift. You're very interesting. Talk a bit about the two executives that you you interviewed palo arbor from ten healthcare. Chris gates from all states a a leader in the in the health. Space a leader in the insurance space. Talk a bit of balance. Why them and why their stories were compelling sure. While starting in the aggregate healthcare and insurance or two of the most data heavy industries and generally where there's data there's opportunities to make products and experiences more intelligent and more automated in the case of gala the cio tenant healthcare there there's an ocean of clinical and claims data available from speaking with her in the past i know they're laser focused on synthesizing that data combining it with voice of the customer analytics to help improve the patient experience and enduring the panel. She shares some really interesting nuances on how to pursue without undermining the importance of the the human side of the patient physician interaction and then just recently under the pressures of covid nineteen.

Australia's National Cabinet pledges for all domestic borders except WA to reopen by Christmas
"Except for western australia. Committed in principle to reopening allstate borders by christmas. This would theoretically main that we could expect queensland say to make up to people from sydney or from victoria by then no data being announced yet by queensland but my money would be probably on the first week of december most australian states also committed to implementing health measures that would enable internal borders to remain open next year.

Kain Warwick of Synthetix on Where the Company is At
"We're. At and what are your kind of the biggest priority? Yes. I. Published an article today, you know one of the things about device it is so early that it's really hard to predict. You are out what your priorities are going to be right. You can take your best guess but. Startup life and I think you know early stage project is very much about being responsive to the market. You know you just go out there and wish that things were way up to actually deal with the way that they are. and so I think being aware of that we've seen over the last probably two to three months is that the demand for stable allstate acquaintance but decentralized orange as well has skyrocketed, and so we've had the supply imbalance where there's a ton of demand for US USD in up supply. And so we're working on alleviating that by introducing. The latest version of our either collateral, which will allow you to borrow s USD from eight directly. which is not something that's been available before So that's super exciting. And then always the gas prices are are huge issue right now So we've had a number of different optimizations that have been available to us for a long time, which we're just low priority things because you know there's a lot of priorities out there and in a lost. Three to four weeks. We basically just made a call to kind of. Pull some of the documentations out around transaction costs and try not. Muslim but probably, the biggest thing is the transition to. Optimistic. So the L. to solution from optimism team. which is a huge deal desma announcements coming out like really soon, correct me if I'm wrong but you are definitely one of the few projects that is actually working on and kind of you know going live with something that involves a level L. to solution. Right does a lot of solutions out there. Moment but I think this kind of three general categories that that are available right? You've got the hybrid off chain solution. So things like diversified, you wind ex are looking at stock wear. Because you know when you're. Using some state in like an chain solution in a stock wears quite quite a powerful solution APP Ck, your knowledge proofs essentially. Zero roll ups. And then you've got state channels and payment channels and things like that which are not really like generalized computation, but allow for very cheap payments right. So we've got billions of dollars with a stable coins flowing. Around. The theorem these days. And we need ways to kind of optimize that and then I think the the probably the most exciting category are the the actual generalized EDM compatible altitude solution. So optimistic theorem falls into that category where you're literally taking same contracts that you're running on one. And you're deploying them to this other. Chain sexually assaulted chain and so it will be. Other than out demo that we did in the union demo. You know one of the first kind of generalized elsia solutions but I think will will see running on tested initially, and then over sale may not eventually. So super super exotic. Why

Determining Your One Thing with Gary Keller
"Hey. If you're a small business owner by now, you have figured out that you can't just work in the business you got to work on the business you've got to get above it gotta do strategic planning and team building all the things that cause a business to actually scale to the next level. That's what it takes to achieve your dreams. But how do you do that? It's not that easy. From the Ramsey network this is the entree leadership podcast where we help business leaders, grow themselves, their teams and their profits. I'm your host Daniel. Tardy, and today we're GonNa talk about how you actually scale a business. How do you get out of that startup stage the treadmill stage you know the bootstrap thing where it's hard and just grinding whatever you WANNA call that stage you've got to break through it to get to the next level. But, it all starts with what we call humble beginnings. All businesses start, but they don't have to stay there and they should stay there had you've got dreams of this thing becoming a big deal and my guest today it's GonNa teach you exactly how that works. Gary Keller is the CO founder, chairman and CEO of keller-williams maybe you've heard of them well, in fact, they're the world's largest real estate firm by agent count he's a titan of his industry he's built a dynasty. But it didn't start that way. And a Gary's, case. He was a real estate agent. With no track, record. So I didn't have any real focus in college and my dad, my sophomore year says, Hey, you probably need to get a major. So he had me that summer spin a day with a lawyer David account a with a banker with a realtor not like the real tournament went back to college and turns out they were just a major mural state. So that's how I came to get my degree allstate was the dad said, just go shadow these people. As exercise I mean most dads don't have their sons do this. So that's that's fascinating to me. He was an educator. So my mother and father were both educated so that that made sense to him. I got to college study real estate came out attributed like a job. So one of the biggest mistakes the independent contractors make is they don't treat it like a job, right they get in there for the freedom and the flexibility and the possibility of untold wealth, and what they do is they take advantage of the freedom and flexibility and they overtake advantage of it, and then they never get the wealth. It's a job it's a job. So I came out of college come to Austin I'd been here once before my. Family I didn't know anybody at the time other than a former school friend and join US Real Estate Company and start selling real estate and all I did was treated like a job that is I got up early and I went to work. So I showed up and by the way there was nobody there and literally would pull my little Volkswagen into the office and there was nobody there and I just got to work and they said look you're gonNA have to generate because we're not going to give you any clients. And of course, I went oh my gosh and they didn't talk about that in college at all. You know they talked about real estate they never said you to generate a client, right? and. So I had to go learn to Lee generate and I read some books and two classes and I went out and I saw five houses my first thirty days in a city that actually never been to write other than once and I did it just by following the books I did what they told me I. Didn't one of the mistakes that we make. I think is that we try to be creative on the front end of doing something instead of the back end and when I mean is is that I had a college professor say Gary Pretty Smart. But if you look around, you realize that people have lived before you. And you might WanNA study them before you go and try to reinvent the wheel and that had a profound impact on me because my went. Okay. So what he's saying is I, should go find out where people who are doing this the best are and just mimic them until I internalize what they're doing. So I, understand it and then I can be creative off of that but. I shouldn't go in and just be creative on the front end because what do I know it would take me years to get smart by doing it and learning from me doing it. I could really speed that up I copy and other people in the beginning. So that's really what got me going. What I came to understand was sales is helping people make good decisions and I didn't. Care in the end I had no real vested interest if the decision was not to buy or if it was to buy because I was looking for clients for life and in the short term, you would think well, I needed everyone to buy because I or or sell with me because I need to make money now but I looked up and I realized pretty quick I wanted to. Have a great career, not just a great year in the way to have a great career was to not overly emphasize the moments income focus on doing right by people they'll do right by you. Right people don't care how much you know until they care right? Did you it these mantras that are not really just mantras they're actually golden rules in philosophies about how to look at things.

AI Opportunity in Insurance, from Process Automation to Decision Support - with Gary Hagmueller
"This week's episode is focused squarely on insurance. There's a lot to keep track of in the space from claims to underwriting to back in process automation to customer service every six months the landscape of AI vendors and known use cases in the enterprise companies changing in altering in part of our work involves staying on top of that that means speaking to heads of AI and innovation leaders at companies. You might know like Geico allstate or Axa. Some the biggest insurance players in the world as well as staying on top of the start up ecosystem this week we speak with one of the players in that. Startup ecosystem. Gary Moeller is the CEO and president of Clara Analytics Clara analytics based in the bay area. And they are focused squarely on insurance artificial intelligence applications Gary previously was the chief operating officer at a house. D One of the rare companies in Silicon Valley to raise hundred million dollars plus for an artificial intelligence company and he was before that the CFO at Zoro which is an incredibly successful subscription management payments. Firm out again in the bay area so gary has got a pretty storied past in the startup world. Clarice raised about twelve million in there. Certainly on the way up insurances ripe for disruption and there's plenty to cover so gary gives us his perspective on where is making its way into insurance where he thinks it's going to make the biggest impact in the relative near term without further ado. We're going to hop right. It says Gary Hag with Clara analytics here on the business podcast so Gary. I wanted to start us off with just your idea today as to where is making a difference in insurance what what functions. It's being adopted into where the traction is today. If we look at a in the Insurance Enterprise Great Question. Damn yeah so so. There's definitely a whole bunch of different places where we're starting to see a proliferate. I will say it's probably very early days really for a big time. So we're you know. Obviously we are very focused on the claims operation space and so we're seeing a variety of different places where this is getting applied. It's getting applied. At least we're we're we're seeing it generally in two flavors things that can kind of be automated away. You know think simple tasks that it you know today. You got a human doing that. Maybe doesn't need to be done and in the second place where we're seeing it. Generally is is occurring in places where there are very complex in weak signals. That have a pretty large bearing on the outcome of whatever the person is working on or whatever the group is working on in is really being used as an augmentation of human capability but so think about the ability to kind of see around the corner and figure out where the things that that could affect what they're working on positively or negatively are In giving them action in on so like nausea as he said. Our focus is on claims ops but yet we have it a guy on my board works in in underwriting and we seen a bunch of different places where this is starting to apply even in the actuarial space. But it's been you know it's really feels like there's a. There's a groundswell of interest activity coming. I like your break out here when you when you look at a impact and insurance. Maybe we could do this with any sector. But you're talking about two categories. One is what can be automated away. I like the term. A lot of vendors are afraid to use that phrase even because it it comes across. You know immoral. You're one of those automation. People stealing job I. I hear a lot of vendors been far too tender with being able to say that phrase Second informing decisions. So it's sounds like a short breaking things up into we look at insurance. What might be an example of each just to give people a Nice Representative Lens into space some automated stuff and then some some decision informing. So I'm GonNa give you some thoughts on both of those but I do WanNa touch on the point on the automation automation away. I feel like that's a topic. That comes up a lot in this whole a discussion on. I don't think it's as sinister as which you portrayed it as I think it's really a situation where there's a lot of tasks that are being done today that I guarantee you that people do not. I don't WanNa do. And it's part of their regular job and so if you free them from doing tasks that they don't WanNa do in focus them in on the things that they would rather be doing that. They are probably better at doing right. That actually ends up making everybody better off instead of giving you kind of an example right. There's a lot of places where you have things blow through processing right where you can get a claim you can analyze. The machine can analyze the claim. The machine can make a determination that like this routine claimed. Let's just go ahead and eight. You know issue payment or issue settlement or whatever On this particular thing so that's maybe an example of things that the kind of flow through the machine can take care of An ambitious close out without necessarily having to kick it up to somebody who is just going to you know. Look at it. Roll their eyes. It's just another one of these ones again. You know do a couple of things. Close it out and move on right. So that's kind of an example of the automation flow the other side of it. So think of it as kind of decision support or or kind of enhancements human enhancement is what I would basically think about it. Were that's where you know. This is this by the way is common across all areas of machine learning. Were what you're doing. If you're tapping into an appropriately. Large amount of data. You're going to begin to pick up weak signals right in in things that are actually deterministic. That most humans aren't going to be able to go off and do right in in. That's for two reasons number one. They may have been doing this job for ten fifteen whatever years to have a certain way of doing the job and they're just never going to look at those other sources of data right. The secondary part is that some of those sources flow in places that people generally don't even look at so if you've figured out how to tap into all these different data sources and you can then get a much more complete picture like in the case of the sorts of things that we do. We can do a much more complete sense of what's going on with an individual claiming give evidence on like exactly how to attack this problem. Right now to mitigate loss or wind up doing something that's going to wind up making the claiming happier subtle faster. That sort of thing in. Maybe there's an interesting sort of exercise that we could do so I guess one quick thing I did I certainly wouldn't call automation sinister per se. I think there are to be some cases where someone gets freed up to do something more cognitively interesting and it's a thank goodness kind of experience. There will be other times where you know. Abacha folks in India Needham Filing TPS reports anymore. You know what I mean. They'll find somebody else to work with point blank period. There's going to be that and I think everybody needs to be pretty honest about it but there will be plenty of of experiences where we'll be able to move people up in work more interesting things when you look in a business and obviously insurance is your space and you aim to sort of help. Maybe business leaders think through where I can find a fit. You look at a business and say oh here's some identifiable for our potentially automative bucket and then here's some ones that we can also identify for the decision bucket.

Ruminating on Food
"We start with an interview. Anthony Davis now guest today on the sustainable futures report you'll the CEO of big bomb which is a not for profit organization which is being trading for some twenty years. As I understand that your role is to encourage healthy eating and sustainable agriculture correct. So how do you do that? Well we when I first set up. I'm a fifth generation farmer and set up the side. Because we were growing onions in Norfolk at them. Every time we went to sell them we could get about one hundred pounds a tonne and two days later. We'd see the onions on the TESCO shelved for about eight hundred pounds a tonne Food supply chain has is giving as Dale and consumes about Dale because If anyone turned out femme Australians we'd be happy to sell them off the process signet so the big bomb is all about reconnecting. People buy that through came from at helping to sell directing consumers by right and we're hoping that process that people would find us about three day on eight health late because they buy fresh local food. You've been doing quantitative what with schools leave. That's right we say that To change people to cooking and buying food we really need to act on the influences and we say the main influences as children because if you can get children eighteen lane that parents wanting healthy fade away. It'll encourage parents to eat better food as well. So what you're doing with the children in the schools well we ran a project in Leicester where we went in every week to help the kid. Some grow seats In plant pulse and that we built some raise bets implanted fruit trees and these children lentil about growing food and when it was ready they were really enthused to taste it and Actually Cook with it and we had this added incentives that they could then take. Will they'd grown to the local shop and the local shop and sell it for them and says cool crop for the shop and it was really brilliant way of introducing children about food and growing only plans to roll it out further into other schools across the country. We absolutely love to because We Got Twenty six thousand schools in this country and we found out that fourteen thousand of them will go to veg. Patch and a m Or Garden as would actually quite easy the mold getting both but unfortunately it's not on the curriculum and at the end of the year with the School Esta. We went to the teacher. Teaching nights as the VEGGIE PATCH. We managed to get a lot of them. Academic Subjects Fetch. So are you going to do it? And she said On anything what's on the creation and unfortunately waving running petition for a long time about getting school food growing grant and cookie on the curriculum and The the government with allstate only measure scope foments on a level massive English and. That's a big mistake. So we all lobbying and we'd love to do more but we're restricted by government mind. That's a dead end for the moment. Unfortunately them while there is a new food and farming policy coming out at the moment and being worked on and we hope that with the evidence week with another number of other organizations that it will change and the government will say the opportunity. Because if you can if you can change able to eat healthy food I think at the moment. Twenty percent of energy as spend is on food related disease so we can get paid eighteen healthy food and if we get infants at school eating healthy food we could see some massive savings Indiana chess. I just told me that again. Twenty percent direction of. Nhs expenditure is on food related disease. Yeah and I think ten percent diabetes and the rest is Be St in Hop. Z's and Allah food related problems. So Yeah Yeah. That's a lot can be done. And I think the time is ripe with Brexit and with people about mole and with the The massive amounts of food aid programs on TV like Brexit. To this will start thinking about whether food comes from and We have kind of news of out sanctions and import duties on some products. Hopefully things like Kim American. None cheap food chlorinated chicken and processed pool come from low animal welfare factories in America said that they will be on. The tariffs kept type thing. Yeah okay Ob some GT but Mr Trump doesn't want much self-aware going to have to look into domestic food production. We're GONNA have to and hopefully when people see this. Trait will happening with cheat American food. They'll stop thinking about will feed they should buy and when they to seek market. They'll think about whether three comes from clear. Labelling which will be really good at. But the I need Kinda Is someone who is produced locally. And he's a he's reputations in state which is where all Lakewood food map comes in.

How Teladoc Health Approaches Clinical Quality, Meets Hospital Virtual Care Needs
"So recently I came across an article On Talladega with the title. What's not to love about being in virtual healthcare? Maybe you can comment a little bit about the experience that you hope to create for patients as well as what safety and quality measurements. Do you as a clinician hoped to focus on through tele doc solution so I do believe that just like ten or twenty years ago when folks began exploring what it meant to be Devoting one's career to hospital medicine and we had that growing growing definition of the hospitalised. Actually the physician that coined that phrase Dr Bob Wachter WHO's the current chair? Uh of the Department of Medicine that. UCSF recently joined our medical advisory board. But I do believe that There will be in the years ahead. A growing field of medicine known as virtual care and that we will have virtual lists and virtual lists will have outstanding upstanding website manner if you will that ability to connect with patients and a highly personal way and then be able to offer that that individual a whole range of services. meaning that if that person for instance needs an expert medical opinion that virtuous can achieve that or if they need a type of referral to some type of specific expertise again the virtuous can care for that individual increasingly from our clients were getting Strong interest in virtual primary care. You're so this is an area that we believe is very ripe for development right now So no longer. Does it mean that your interaction with your virtual doctor is that episodic interaction but increasingly I do believe that there's a number of individuals who have a variety of chronic conditions diabetes hypercholesterolemia hypertension that really lend themselves into a longitudinal relationship with a clinical care team. And all of this can be done. Virtually what about quality and safety. What are you looking for? What are you tracking with these teams until talk solution so we believe that At the end of the day clinical quality is really what differentiates health In the market today and so we take clinical quality. Quite quite seriously actually Dr Bill Frist is On our board of directors electors and he tears up our quality and safety subcommittee and I would say that my job is a pretty easy job because when coming to that committee and having various ideas in terms of how we can move the quality needle I feel as though the quality and safety committee at CAL is a highly receptive audience for initiatives in these areas. So what are the some of these initiatives one. Our current General Medicine Program does see a tremendous amount of individuals who are suffering from upper respiratory illnesses. As you know there's a ramp's over prescribing of antibiotics And one initiative that. We've been very very focused on is antibiotic antibiotic stewardship. We're very happy to report that. We're currently working on a ARC grant With some researchers from the University of southern in California. Just around antibiotic stewardship. We do believe that we're currently tracking a bit better than brick and mortar in terms of Not Not over prescribing antibiotics. And yet we also feel so there's always room to grow We also feel as though there's ED overuse of steroids Being utilized for individuals who have a variety of upper respiratory complaints so using I using steroids indiscriminately is obviously not good for the patient. So this is another parameter that we're very carefully monitoring and then as you might imagine we look very carefully at our providers NPS scores that member satisfaction. We look at complaint rates. We look at visit time. We look at visit volume And ultimately what we have created for. Our clinicians is a dashboard. Because we do believe getting feedback on how you doing and how you're doing relative to your peers is a very important way that we can dr clinical quality On our expert medical services. We have a whole host of parameters that were routinely ainley tracking changes in diagnosis changes in treatment again. The member satisfaction being the hallmark of We're really trying to deliver care that is meaningful to the individual at the time that they're reaching out for care from Talbot Health. I Love Love The web side Care and As you as you mentioned when you were speaking about the virtual health care physician and I've never heard that before. I believe a lot of our listeners. When they hear virtual healthcare they are going to think that? There's this additional technologies in play other than what is at the normal Brick and mortar clinicians office. If you will could you discuss with us a little little bit about the technology you all are using that help. Sure so I I. I'd say that at its simplest. We really really feel as though we want technology to be deployed in a way that enhances coulda call quality so We do have the capabilities to integrate With Taito care for instance which is a way that one can Listen to someone's chest and look at their ear But we don't want these to be GATING obstacles So if the issue of the individual can be resolved with a simple phone call. Aw We will do that If the individual requires a video consultation. Of course we do that. With a high degree of frequency We also are always looking for digital therapeutics and other ways as in which we can deploy technology to enhance clinical quality. But it's not the other way around so we're not looking to just put if if you will sizzle into our program through integrating devices and technologies. That at the in the end result are not meaningful meaningful in terms of driving meaningful clinical outcomes. That's great so we're we're not adding tech just to have more technology and play. I I think I think we can all appreciate that. You mentioned that one of the largest growing areas is primary care and chronic diseases which is so important A lot of times a diabetic doesn't necessarily need to go in to see the clinician in person every week or every month month. So when I if I'm a diabetic do I have the same doctor each time or do I simply have tele doc health physician each time when I reach out to them. Right so Again we are just beginning to dip our toe if you will into the waters of virtual primary care but I think it is all centered around an individual's care team so it would be a physician. It would be some type of advanced practice. Clinicians being a nurse practitioner or physician assistant would be a medical assistant. And this would be the care team team that would be connected with the individual Seeking care. But it wouldn't be the general network work of general medicine providers. We really feel as though that personal care team will be key In terms of the success of the program. Yeah Lou I think That's a great point. I I like to highlight care team management and personalized. Care as much as I can. I think I think The clinicians that I've worked with over the years in the literature allstate that the healing process and maintaining wellness health. I come from a community so creating that upfront. And being part of the plan is huge no matter how high tech the solution might be a little bit of if you can you had. Yeah right I mean obviously I don't think either one of you on this call would disagree with that. I'm pretty sure our listeners would applaud that as well Not I tonight one point that I did want to make. Is that what we're trying to create in terms of our virtual primary care offering is much more than Instead of seeing me in the office on Brooklyn Avenue we can have a skype call and We can resolve your issue without you needing to come in and park and go through all that inconvenience. I do believe leave. That virtual primary care can achieve a higher level of clinical outcome through the successful deployment of Data analytics so that this program can be specifically targeted to individuals that we know we'll take full advantage digital therapeutics remote patient monitoring a I a lot of other resources that that frankly are not available to the general internist practicing in the office setting so that if one can if you will not only be prescribing medications but also be prescribing digital tools. That will help drive the the individual to a greater state of wellness. I think you can begin to see. How virtual care can in some instances exceed what is traditionally unle available through your routine? Hi Mary Care in a brick and mortar setting.

DVD's yeah so so of those features and there's one big one that I want to tack onto there that we can talk a little bit because it's a bit undefined but of those hardware features like what grabs your attention. What do you what excites you about the system? What do you feel like you need to hear more about to really get the scope up? I liked the haptic feedback thing because I feel like The controllers from what we've seen through official sources on the Xbox side and leaks on the playstation side. Feel mostly iterative like they feel like the the five dual shock five. Whatever we're calling it right now just kind of looks like a like a dual four? After Christmas break like it's kind of CIANCI a little thick one of those heavy horses with short like a little Sebastian of the Thomas. The tank engine was stopped talking about horses. Horses no looks like a thick cost. Yeah we haven't releasing the back of it yet. I know you just really sat back button so those are coming out at the end of the month. Okay that comes out at the end of the month and there was a recent patent for the dual shock five that essentially implied there would be back buttons which are similar to what the xbox one elite controller has what some other pro controllers have. Yeah so if it's structurally similar to the dual talk for that Even if it's a little horse here chunkier but I do want to like dig in more the sort of bells and whistles that bells and whistles that's gimmicky that's horse. Nonsense horsing around of all these things like these are things that will matter like a higher faster. Hard drive is great Ray tracing tracing sounds cool don't understand it ultra HD. Blu Ray cool. I don't have to switch to my xbox one s three sound cool great. That's so that's so corny. That is totally like rear touchscreen. Vida stuff and I'm here for Italy. It's the kind of thing that I feel like almost like I not every game. We'll take advantage of radio but I feel like almost every game. We'll try to implement something to haptic feedback launch. Your as long as it's going to totally go away you're going to be like it'd be less the lightbulb right by media molecule release a small game three years. That is the best. Use those things you've ever had. We'll be called sky touch or it won't use the screen. It'll just be three D audio and get yourself out of the jail cell pitch black. Actually the blindfold. I'm genuinely interested in the ray tracing stuff it just because I think that that is going to be the most immediate. Oh my God this is next Gen when we when when when we see it probably taken advantage of. I've read a bunch. The pieces deep diving into what playstation five ray. Tracing could actually look like an obviously I think if they want to maintain a price point that is competitive. It is an affordable for a pissing on average salary It's not going to be as advanced to say some. PC's as can can achieve nowadays. But like I really like the idea of of of it being immediately more beautiful again being immediately mmediately beautiful then you then you could see the PS four and Li- like for me. It's just little things like Oh God you know it's like Armand decided not to the original dishonored you could see wretched odors and the vision. You couldn't see it in the council vision and I sort of like. That's the sort of thing that we can notice. And I think that's going to actually be a big selling point for me that it's just going to immediately look prettier. The technology again. The technology is like the way that the playstation and possibly implementing this kind of short circuits my brain but I. I do think that that is going to be the thing that people are going to immediately noticed right now. What was it was the first? PS Four game that you remember being like Oh it's here now because like I feel like launch stuff stuff. It's so close to pre tailend previous stuff that you're like looks nicer. But it's nothing horizon aired on. Okay okay I was going to say uncharted for before. That prop I mean there was. There was some there was some like pan over stuff in kill zone where I was like. Yeah Wow. That's that's a stunning environment Running Yup coast some of the textures in that game and being like okay. That looks really good In retrospect they they look they look good. They look fine scraping opposite. Yeah it always happens when here's sort of chasing that but yeah I'm totally with you guys on this. I think it like I would really love if there's a couple of things that just like genuinely wow out of the box. Yeah and more importantly if devs working on. Ps Four exclusives for Twenty Twenty start quietly implementing some of the stuff under the hood. That is there when we played backwards compatible games on day one and there's a giant patch with it makes immediately the last of US look even better and such. That's even that's even more interesting. If the if the leaves ghosted Sushila can look better right if that's even possible. Yeah they're very good looking leaves. You've done a great job Andrew for me personally. The ultra high-speed. SSD AGAIN A lot. All of these things are more like tech Germany. And I think when we get to the PS five reveal and the way things are going to be sold to us. We're not gonNA hear half of these things in marketing word. That's why it's hard for me to sort of explain. Yeah excited for Ray tracing because I don't really understand how it would but I know what it could potentially sue and that's the salt dry for me in the showed that in a sort of like behind closed doors demonstration and to wired and then that video leaked but essentially the the load times in the way the world will load is so dramatically. Faster her because this is a sort of custom built drive. That's going to be interacting with the Games in a different way and so that will allow they showed I think the difference from the PS four Spiderman and then spiderman running on the PS five hardware was like a six second difference from like seconds down to one point
Shock and outrage as White House says next G-7 summit will be at Trump property
"There was widespread today my Mick Mulvaney announced that Donald Trump was in fact going to force the US government and other major governments around the world to pay money by hosting the g seven corral golf resort next year is the Washington Post puts it quote that decision is without precedent in modern American history. The president used his public office to direct a massive contract himself but here's the thing Durell could really use it we're bringing someone who knows more about trump's other business interests than just about anyone he's reporting on all the best three years on a Pulitzer for his invested into the President David Farren hold is great to have you here David let's start with the significance of Durrell which unlike some other properties it's not licensed it's it's it's real directly part of the presence main business holdings correct it is basically the keystone of Donald Trump's entire hospitality Gulf hotel business it produces more revenue for him every year than any hotel or golf course and he has one of its biggest loans on if you were to pick one property the donald trump's financial health dependent on this would be it very levered I mean he's got he owes people money on it he was don't you bank the original one was for one hundred twenty five million dollars to Deutsche Bank it's one of his biggest loans now you tweeted about how it's been doing and the vacancy rate typically in the summer you said the summit will be held in June Miami's hot drills usually emptying 2017 only thirty eight percent rouse rooms were occupied this is one of derails worst month so you're bringing a huge amount of business to resort at a time that is over all not doing very well financially but you're bringing it to this resort at a time when it needs that money the most as you saw Durell June is the second slowest month for Durell only August is worse they're occupancy rate is under forty percent so even if trump just charged the cost which we have no idea if he's going to but even if he didn't try to make a profit on each individual room he's filling the resort at a time it'll be mostly empty rats are great point you also noted that it has not been doing well recently this is not this is not a facility that is on the upswing no in the opposite we got some data that the trump organization itself provided to Miami Dade County that shows that between Twenty fifteen and twenty seven uh-huh span of just two years net operating income dropped seventy percent at this resort that's a huge drop at a time when every other resort in Miami is basically doing the same and the reason we saw video where a representative from the trump organization was talking to the county about why it was doing poorly in she laid the blame directly on trump she said the brand is doing really that's why this place is severely underperforming so you've okay so you've got the crown the crown jewel of his enterprise the brings in the most revenue at a time when it is vacancy rate is under four eight percent and at a time when the revenue and and use of the place the prophet is going down because of the negative brandon impacts of his presidency and what does this mean g seven's a big deal right like a lot of money is going to get spent there just to give you a sense of the scale of this thing I talked to somebody who had planned the last g seven that the US had at a private event which was in two thousand and four in Georgia they served forty five thousand meals during that week they took over this resort for ten days they pay three million dollars in two thousand and four money it's hundreds of people thousands of people that can't even allstate draft to stay at other places but you're talking about an enormous event between security diplomats journalists and the leaders themselves there's also there's also been some health problems at Toronto Daily Be Story from twenty one thousand nine about a rat infestation problem and route situation it has it has had some challenges well this year has been a good year for them they haven't had any any health code violations that's good news and our leaders who will be staying there and hopefully not norovirus but they have had in years past not that long ago they've had problems with the health code called euphemistically small live flying insects insects and other kinds of cleanliness issues in a number of kitchens at Durrell is there any I mean how how is this legal I mean honestly if anyone who's ever out there watching has ever interacted with federal contracting you know that it is one of the most common me that just complicated a legal thicket and incredibly complex process there are thousands of people throughout the government who work on it this seems to fly in the piece of every single policy there is for federal contracting but that's what's interesting about this is one of the few things which by tradition the didn't get to eat to circumvent the entire contracting process they don't put out a request for proposal evaluate bids the president sort of does this secret and then the White House just chooses a place this is Tom was never designed with the idea that the president might choose his own place so this is a case for trump has sort of unfettered unrestricted power to give the contract to whoever he wants and holy gave it to himself we'll see now in the next few weeks hopefully it'll be a little more transparency about what it looks like but they're going to be any scrutiny on the front end my favorite Presley it was a tr- Presley's I blink quoting trump from the trump works and they were honored that they were selected for this which is a really incredible piece the use of language David well thank you as always for your fantastic
Teslas Auto Insurance Gets Off to a Rocky Start
"Business Wars daily is sponsored by audible audible has the world's largest selection of audio books and Audio Entertainment Start Listening with a thirty day audible trial by visiting audible dot com slash B w daily or by texting. Bw Daily to five hundred five hundred from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Thursday September nineteenth can self driving car or one with driver assist technology drive more safely than you can. That question is at the heart of how much car insurance may cost in the future and if you're a tesla owner the very near future future late last month. Tesla debuted its latest new product. Auto Insurance Tesla's are famously among the most expensive cars in the country you to ensure one reason why Tesla owners were so interested when Elon Musk tweeted his plans to offer insurance must promise that the company could offer premiums that would be twenty to thirty percent less than those from traditional insurance companies. Tesla has several advantages that should make for lower premiums must claimed claimed those advantages include Tesla's knowledge of its own cars and driving safety system called autopilot. That's intended to help drivers avoid accidents and of course the precise driving data collected by cameras and GPS systems installed in the vehicles themselves. Tesla is in the only company using data to determine are driving risk and how much to charge for coverage shop for any insurance policy and you're likely to be offered the opportunity to install a tracking device in your car. You know the the kind of transmits your driving habits for better or for worse directly to your insurer in return. They promised discounts to good drivers well. Whether you you take the offer depends on how you feel about privacy how much money you're likely to save and how confident you are and you're driving and possibly whether you like the idea of keeping electronic tabs on your teenager who was newly behind the wheel. What's new here is that the data tesla collects on its owners isn't really optional? It's how how the vehicles work and that Tesla says allows it to get more accurate pictures of your habits from how often to how far and how fast you drive it still tesla says it's not using individual information to price insurance at least not yet instead like regular insurance companies. Tesla is grouping groupings. An- anonymous data of course insurance rates are affected by other things as well including your location the model value of your car and your age obviously obviously Tesla can't control any of those things still it's offering perked the interest of current Tesla owners and could help Tesla's sell more cars by reducing the insurance coverage sticker shock if that coverage is in fact twenty to thirty percent less well that turned out to be a big if on Launch Day August twenty eight the first excited customers went online for quotes but that excitement rapidly turned to scorn in many cases those quotes were far higher than the price is owners were paying at companies like USA and gyco according to scores of comments in Tesla owner forums and other online sites so what happened was musk overly optimistic. Well know many of those. sky-high quotes seem to have been mistakes stemming from bugs in the algorithms that determine prices. Tesla took it sight down for a few hours the same day to fix the problem problem. Since then at least some customers have been seeing promise savings on twitter. One customer boasted that his insurance for 2017 Model X. Through allstate was more than four hundred dollars a month his Tesla insurance quote about seventy bucks. The company's insurance offering isn't designed solely for the prophets. It's it can bring to Tesla. It's also intended to help drive badly lagging car sales one factor in those slowing sales may well be the high cost of ensuring the vehicles witness another other twitter user a woman named Katie who tweeted on September third insurance prices have been the biggest thing holding me back from getting my Tesla. Please get this to Illinois Asap while Tesla is the number one selling electric car in the US electric vehicles still make up a tiny percentage of all car sales so tesla insurance insurance is hardly likely to shake up the huge auto insurance business right away but down the road well it could very well disrupt the insurance industry as we we buy more electric cars or when other automakers decide like musk to compete with the allstate's in Geico's of this and I'm wondering this business for his day.

Bezos Accuses 'National Enquirer' Owner Of Extortion
"Support for this NPR podcast and the following message. Come from Yahoo. Finance live, eight hours of free. Live streaming news without cable or a subscription. Tune in for the news. You need about your money accessible wherever you go. Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos is going punch for punch with the National Enquirer and its parent company. AM I in a post on the blog site medium last night, Basil's accused the inquires owner David pecker of trying to blackmail him. Bazo writes, quote, rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail. I've decided to publish exactly what they sent me despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten and quote now those also implied that he was being targeted because he owns the Washington Post, which has been dogged in its reporting about President Trump. I do just want to note here that Amazon is a funder of NPR. Let's turn out to NPR's early. Berliner hiree David so reminding the Enquirer had already published some personal text messages about Basil's. But I mean, it sounds like the. Had a lot more on him. That's right. They said they had a lot more and these of photos in particular were lewd sexually suggestive pictures of selfies of Jeff Bezos and Lawrence Sanchez. The woman that he was allegedly having an extramarital affair with and bazo said that he was threatened by AM I because of this investigation that he launched into how the National Enquirer came into possession of these personal tax and photos. Okay. So he was investigating with a suspicion that there might have been some political motivations that in this first publication of those tests messages, and he saying the inquirer was saying stop this investigation, or will publish more, and he actually published some emails that he says are from the parent company of of the inquirer. What exactly they say? Yeah. This is quite extraordinary illegit. Bezos, says okay, you're going to publish these photos of me. I have these emails from A M I officials, and here's what they say. And it's clear from these emails if they are from AM, I that they want bazo. They're eager for owes to stop investigating this league. One of them proposes some terms to Basil's that to end the dispute it says, it will agree not to publish any of texts or photos in return basis would have to say that am is coverage of his affair was not politically motivated. The other Email describes the suggestive photos in some graphic detail. This is apparently intended to convince Basil's to back off them. But yeah, as you mentioned basis in his post suggests there's a political motivation here what let's talk about the politics and the possible political motivation was that's what makes this story. Even more extraordinary all the players here. Yeah. Exactly. I mean, these are plot twist reminiscent of John Grisham novel. But in some way, they're more sensational. You have Jeff Bezos the world's richest man, the founder, the CEO of Amazon, and the owner of the Washington Post, and then there's David pecker, the head of am, I and pecker isn't just a publisher. He's been a longtime ally of Donald Trump, you know, as you may remember, the National Enquirer acknowledged paid some. Some hush money to a former playboy model. Karen McDougal who said she had an affair with Trump. Now, she was paid hundred and fifty thousand dollars a right during the two thousand sixteen political campaign so much going on here. I'm including as you mentioned basis ownership of the post, which he says is a complex afire for him. That's not a word. We use it often. What did he mean? Yeah. I don't know. What exactly what that word means by he'd I I don't know if it's any word you use? But but but what he says basically is that? Yes. Owning the Washington Post can be complicated you get into conflicts. But he also says that he is very proud of owning the post and that you know, it's a critical institution with a critical mission. And he says his support of that mission is something that he'll look back on when he's ninety years old and reviewing his life and be very proud of AllState still. We don't want to connect to many dots. That shouldn't be connected, but so many interesting players here with a lot of influence. It's just an extraordinary story. NPR's berliner. Thanks so much.

A mayhem moment is any good or bad, but definitely memorable thing is happened in college football that fourth down, stop over the weekend and Happy Valley. For example, of course, mayhem moment is also something that could happen while you're off the field or something like a car wreck on the way home from the game. Of course, it's the mayhem moment that happens off the field that AllState can help you with Kirk is an expert in may him on the field.

And I, I told you highlight of the week for me is about twelve twenty three PM eastern Saturday afternoon, because game day is over sprint onto the AllState bus dark cold games on bears in charge of the clippers front left. He's in charge, get him up. Get them signed up here. Let's get our top five games on. We get them all lined up. And usually he does a very, very good job. He's very accountable in that regard as far as getting the games on and we put the best game of of that particular window in the big screen. We've got four other TV's around the big one in the middle and life is good. Air conditioning set at about sixty five rooms, dark to bear off, passes out. BIC jackets off. Bear usually passes out. You know, usually just before the half, he'll start this nor and pass out. And usually I'll go over and kinda give them an elbow just to make sure he's still in play. And typically it's a normal week, right until we do till we go out to cover the eight o'clock game will for whatever reason has. I'm talking about Trevor Lawrence in his injury. I'm talking to bear on a video. We put up on social media and I'm getting his feedback on on what's going on. And I said, what's going on in West Virginia, Texas tack. And I looked at the next screen screen too, and there was a premier soccer games. The disgust in your voice. Serious about it. I said, bear, what is a soccer game doing on my screen to over here? Will we?

So he was explaining to me, it was him against Fowler there to favorite teams on he was dead serious watching the game.
