Nasa Successfully Flies Small Helicopter on Mars
"Just a few short years, drone aircraft have been steadily changing Our world is they're being put to use for military security and civilian purposes. But now they've begun conquering space, too, with NASA's first test flight of a tiny helicopter It has been launched from the surface of Mars. Humankind's first powered flight in an alien world now promises to be the start of a new era in interplanetary exploration, Nick Green reports. Slight control, confirming that we have DVR from ingenuity. It's the size of a tissue box and a long way from home, not to mention a sizable to do list to check off before it could touch base again. With ground control. It messes Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California takeoff climb, cover descent landing touchdown and spend up. But after a 39 2nd mission And a few hours to rely its messages to Earth. Use finally reached a team of scientists anxious for confirmation that ingenuity his mission to master. The skies of Mars had been a success, Altimeter data Confirm that ingenuity and perform the first leg of a card aircraft. Another planet? Yeah, this flight was all about proving that it is possible to fly on Mars. Of our grip is the tiny helicopters chief pilot. So to that end, what we had instructed ingenuity to do was to climb. Altitude of three M. Over there for a little bit, about five seconds. Then make a turn of about 96 degrees. Cover for another 20 seconds and then go to land again in the same place that it took off from And that's what he told ingenuity to do. And it did exactly that, And it did it just perfectly

"Mm hmm. This'd is morning edition from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm no. Well, king. Good morning. Had you been at Jezreel Crater on Mars earlier today, you would have seen something remarkable. A little helicopter about the size of a tissue box on long, spindly legs. Lifting off from the floor of the crater, hovering about 10 ft in the air, and then coming back down that folks was history, the first powered flight on Mars. NPR's Joe Palka has been monitoring that flight from here on Earth. Good morning, Joe. Good morning oil. So tell us about what happened this morning. Well, it was really something. About 3 30 in the morning Eastern time, which was about high noon on Mars. At the landing site, this little helicopter executed a series of commands that the Earth had sent it earlier the day before, actually But the flight all took place autonomously. And then the helicopter had to send the data to the rover and the rover had to send the data to it. Orbiting satellite around Mars and the orbiting Saturn around Mars had to send the data to the deep space network and the deep space network had descended to JPL. And that's when people learn what happens around 6 45 Eastern time JPL engineer Michael Starts let the team in the control room know that data was arriving. This is down, Linc. We're beginning to fetch data from Mars 2020 and the key piece of data was that was coming from the helicopter was something from the altimeter, which would show whether the helicopter made it up into the air.

Confirmed that infinity and performance first life the first light of a powered aircraft, another planet E. I love the excitement. I just do. What was the helicopter doing on Mars to begin with? Well, it was. It's a It's an experimental. It's a demonstration project. It's not part of the science mission of the rover, but it was strapped to their over. It flew to Mars on their over Atlanta with their over the rover dropped it off and drove away. And then it was about 60 yards away when it was taking pictures back toward 60 yards, 60 ft. Something like that, anyway, was taking pictures of the road of the flight as it occurred, and then NASA sent those pictures back just a little while ago. And what do they show? It's just it's really something. So I mentioned that the flight took place around noon on Mars, and as the helicopter went up in the air, took a shot facing straight down, and you can see the helicopter shadow on the surface of Mars, which it looks like a little insect. It's got these two rotor blades. So it's like four wings essentially Sticking out with four little legs. It's really something of a picture, and the other interesting picture was from the rover, which was, as I say, positioned a ways away, taking a shot. Of it in the air and the ground. So it was. It was real. It was real and so into what is next for the little helicopter that could Well, um, first with first light was up and down the next fight, they might try going a little higher a little bit sideways. They're just so thrilled that they're going to try some more later in the month. Is it hard for a helicopter to fly on Mars? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, The air is very thin there and you need to have a helicopter with extremely big rotor blades..

NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter Succeeds in Historic First Flight

Another planet. The excitement from flight controllers in California is over NASA's experimental $85 million Mars helicopter.

That £4 helicopter named ingenuity was carrying a bit of wing fabric from the 1903 Wright Flyer, which made similar history at Kitty Hawk in North Carolina.
Roblox Valued at $30 Billion
"Roadblocks raises five hundred and twenty million dollars led by ultimate or capital and dragonair investment group so They announced today that they raised their five hundred. Twenty million dollars in a series h a purchase price of forty five dollars per share. If you do the math and all that sort of stuff it values the company at twenty nine point. Five billion dollars. Let's call it thirty right. The i don't know why they priced it. So it's twenty nine point five thirty sound so much pathetic. Let's call it. Thirty billion dollar valuation House spot on where we kind of wish we could sort of You know splice in the conversation. We had honorable extra because not only. Did we say this would happen right. That they would do private round where they've announced that they're going to do a direct thing not an ipo. So this is essentially their ipo fundraise right. That's how it directly thing works you raise the money privately and then you avoid sort of the the raise you do. That's part of the ipo on there for you. Avoid the show you avoid having the price shares and things like that so the has now been priced. It's effectively an ipo. it's not publicly traded. Yet they're gonna do public listing but this is the financing and we called the valuation. Right now i think we said based on unity's valuation. I you know. I think we agree to was probably going to be in this thirty billion dollar bar ballpark and we have longer. It's insane how close they Called it. I'm also surprised at this point. They don't round it up like like i just weird like you could call it a thirty. It's twenty nine point five. You can bow out that up like what who thought that sounded better lake. Like what's half a billion dollars point by. We're joking around. But yeah. I mean this is humongous. It's humongous your particularly william the the quote from the ceo of one of the funds that invested. Because i think this is telling. And maybe you have some thoughts on this it listen to the subtleties in the language here. He says while once viewed as a gaming platform roadblocks has emerged as the definitive global community connecting millions of people through communication entertainment and commerce said. Brad gerstner ceo. Tim under if you didn't know better what would he be describing a social network right. Yes like you don't even have to wait. I was literally like an listening to you. I'm like this. Sounds like facebook like this and most social networks go through that branding period where they get past their initial audience. Right think of facebook. Facebook used to be just for college. Kids right am i mean literally it was supposed to be like this is common knowledge but be supposed to be like the facebook that you've got as a freshman to meet new people right like that's why it's called facebook And now it's now. And i'm sure at the time they were describing themselves as a great platform for college age students to discover each other and forge friendships. And it's the same thing here. They are talking about like they would have said previously were gaming. Now wear something. We've expanded where social platform and that's insane because it. This is first of all what i think. We said. We felt like i think should have done. Ns feels like messaging. That should have come from epic from. This is how they should have been describing fortnight. So it's very it's surprising to see it from rob blocks. it's refreshing because i'm glad somebody has this messaging. Somebody is looking at games as social networks and trying to turn a game into a social network which is really potential right. And i'll see this last like for longtime ever since. I wrote the harvard business school case or co wrote. I should say on world of warcraft. I felt games are social networks. I'm not alone. i mean pretty much. Everybody who's thought about it realizes they're pretty much the same thing Right but it's interesting. To see this. Crossover into an investment thesis with this much money behind. And i think given the success of this. It won't be long before we see other dame's and game companies realize their social networks. Still think it's gone too far right like i was. I'm i've been so pro. Roadblocks right called the valuation called. This move loved the big number here right. it's own good for the industry. There's there's really no downside to any of this right in fact now thirty billion dollars again in kind of the context we're talking in. The context of a social network is a pretty cheap social network. Right when you're talking about the facebook and the twitter like where you're talking valuations in the hundreds of billions This is a pretty cheap social network and so super cheap for the number of users. I'm sure it has in the monetization per user. I bet it's it's bargain-basement steel which is probably part of why they want to calm themselves again. Social networks but like. There's a question of does this go too far right. Where the investor says while once views viewed as a gaming platform as if the daming days are like ancient history when you walk into rox. You're not playing a game right now. Either to be fair. Like i think this is okay like i really think mrs okay. Because like it's fair to say that their social and commerce activity going on and that their primary drivers and i've always been kind of a believer that raw blocks was not and i don't disparage anything here. Blake pound for pound. It's not the best game out there right. I'm sure there are many young kids and fans. That would just be with me. But i think fundamentally the reason why it's been successful is a game is not that the underlying game or game mechanics itself for so incredible or so unique Was because it was a social and ecommerce platform hooked into a game and the game was fun to play because of the socialization features in the commerce hawks. So you don't think language goes too far. I don't think it does in this case. No no like. I and i'll put it this way like if fortnight were describing itself that way without some major changes. I'd say i appreciate the aspiration but that's reaching right now but it's really does have other hooks in it. You know it really does right. So i i mean it's death. Look it's definitely like definitely you know a vanguard language right like it's somebody trying to change perception of the business but as long as the strategy meets the attempt to change perception. I think it's good for them. You know what. Let me let me push this one step further because the article ends with you know. Typical of a press release about blacks about altimeter capital right. There's always like the about sections for the the companies mentioned in the press release. Right and roadblocks. Let me just read the first sentence again. It's like there's a question mark here is this to have we gone too far right and the and the sentence here is roadblocks mission is to build a human co experience platform that enables shared experiences among billions of users so no game gaming in that sense but experience twice human once shared once billions once. You know it's a lot of good word into a lot of good words. No i mean. Look i mean. Clearly clearly it will remain to be seen whether or not their messaging this way to get a great valuation or if they're messing this way because they generally believe the platform can grow into that mission right. I feel like borderline disingenuous in the messaging. I like i said i'm the biggest fan of roadblocks. I love what they're doing. I think they've achieved and probably will achieve what fortnight should have in terms of growing outside of being a game. It's just like when you don't even mention it at all. I would like. I would like somebody who say like most users download custom levels and it would be like reading. A tesla press release and the word car is not used or automobile. Like is why don't they read that way anyway. Toby start with. Tesla is the future of human transportation or something. But i actually really don't know. But i mean i agree but like i mean the end of the day like i'd rather i. I think it's great for gaming e sports. Because i know sometimes we got a little bit of criticized for doing gaming news on east but the reality is this is so core to what's happening in interact entertainment like we can't discuss this right so it's the first then. The second piece is like okay. So you know i get that flake i get. This might be reach. And i think probably internally they're going to say it's a reach but i again i appreciate the fact that the market is recognizing that games can be more than games right. The games can be a bridge into something and fundamentally what games are about like interactive worlds. Can be a lot more than just half life in street fighter. Rife and i think whether or not they execute this change so fully as to earn that mission. I think it's going to make it easier for the next business to message. We're gonna see more businesses messaging mess name as a result will see the games media mature into more

Apple reveals lower cost watch and updated iPad
"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week.

Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that. And finally school time and downtime or front and Center for children while optimizations focused on health for older relatives take precedence at the other end of the spectrum.

It requires cellular models, of Apple, watch series four or later or Apple Watch S E running watch os seven paired with iphone six s or later running IOS fourteen. Apple also said that kids and older family members of the household using family set up, we'll have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. So, while you don't need to get GRANDPA and the kids their own phones, each cellular watch will come with a tone cellular plan and. Associated Bill.

"There were some important emissions made. The captain gave no indication of specific point. Where the climb would stop. There was no tall sharing mentioned other than throttle control particularly as the flight. Crew consisted of two captains. Despite saying that he was familiar with this maneuver. The captain had never performed a flypast without Alpha flood protection. Which would have to be disabled for this low pass? A takeoff in show trends was conducted without incident. And then flight to nine six lined up for the flypast with the gear down alter thrust dolph an Alpha floor inhibited. I'm familiar with the airfield. They started their descent. A little late passing three hundred feet the GP WS chimed as. They had not yet selective flat three so it was turned off the radio. Altimeter cold the height as they passed three hundred two hundred and then one hundred when the captain arrived at his briefed height. His first officer advised him. Okay you're at one hundred feet.

When it comes to ice melt, 'what happens in Greenland doesn't stay in Greenland'
"So this recent study in the journal Nature comes out and it says Greenland the ice sheet there now melting seven times faster than in the nineteen nineties. So why should we care about that. Well faster melt. Means faster sea level rise and that puts an extra four hundred million people at flood. Risk by twenty one hundred. The Greenland study was a hot topic for scientists at the American Geophysical Union Conference in San Francisco to scientists at. The conference took a moment. I want to send climate. CAST their thoughts on the study from of all places. Their hotel lobby. Here's University of Saint Thomas Professor. John Abraham Hey Paul thanks. Thanks for having me on today. Appreciate the chance to talk to your audience. So I'm sitting here with Dr Kevin Trenberth and we were just talking about the new Greenland ice sheet article. Hi Paul Kevin Trenberth so. There was an exceptional melt event in August of this year when Dan rivers of melted water. Where flowing across parts of Greenland and the extent of the melt across greenland was unprecedented at contributes tributes significantly to sea level rise? And you know the sea level is going up by over three millimeters per year. It's gone up over three about three and a half inches Since one thousand nine hundred ninety two which is when we had altimeters and space to actually measure this and so we can measure the sea level rise to millimeter accuracy. The ocean is warming That's expanding and so. That's another key part of this overall problem. So Kevin trenberth was talking about millimeter seal rises and people might think those are small. But if you have the sea level rise is by just one centimetre over six million people will be affected. There's a lot of people that live near close to the coast. This is affecting real people. Real lives is in the US and in other countries and we expect four hundred million people to be affected by this problem by twenty one hundred. This is a real problem. it's human caused and we've really got to do something about it. That's John Abraham from the University of Saint Thomas with world renowned climate scientists. Kevin trenberth talking to us from. I'm their hotel lobby of the American Geophysical Union Conference in San Francisco last month. They were sharing a recent study. That says the Greenland. Ice Sheet is melting much faster than we thought. Thanks for the perspective guys. We heard them talking about the consequences of millimeters and centimeters of sea level rise. But here's the bigger picture. Sure just how fast future sea levels will. Rise is a huge climate. Change Wildcard current forecasts project about three feet of sea level. Rise by twenty one hundred. That's based on a mid level greenhouse gas emissions scenario but many scientists believe three feet is too low and higher level projections this project. Six to eight feet of sea level rise by twenty one hundred. This new greenland melt study and trends. were seeing an. Antarctica suggests that sea level level rise is trending toward those higher and projections. Flooding is costly and dangerous as we saw last year in places like Puerto Rico and North Carolina and and the big insurance companies like Munich. Reinsurance say sea level rise brings dramatic economic impacts to the coast and to real estate and Insurance Trans- everywhere. You're including Minnesota so climate change in Greenland isn't like Vegas what happens in Greenland doesn't stay in. Greenland and sea level rise will be among the big climate story lines.

consult thinker quebec nickel and then after this will go newspapers which is not what people typically do right but i can cause silicon valley in nineteen ninetythree because there is insane coffee internet that was blowing up and i want to be part of that is kind of a disruptor right when the getty and i thought newspapers would definitely going to be impacted so that's why i mad at myself there matinee merkley hairs became an analyst at four super ten years and i started my own company back in two thousand eight lead before the recession hit a big big fortunately were covering a nearly

mitt by herself from global couple upside but people globally boy so good luck scales could they have produced a really interesting work they can't say well that is definitely add disruptors journey and you're latest book is called the destruction mindset that like i said it's coming out in a couple of months i'm looking forward tina release and congratulations you say that you want to launch a movement of disruptors a virtual army of change makers in all aspects of life in business i love that most people don't like the change as you mentioned in your book are in what i've read about your book but you say that disruptors are wired to walk on the knife edge because it makes them stretch grow and i totally agree that the people kind of move name the ones does that make the biggest impact are people that are willing to go outside their comfort zone those were the ones that leader organizations that are capable of executing a destruction strategy that balances short term execution to achieve their goals against planning investing for the future i'd love to talk to us more about the distinction between richard disruptors persons everyone else yeah i i should destructor understand that in order to reach the news click the new place of growth it's going to be difficult it's going to be tough journey frankly acquainting hanko that how you go out and if people say like i wanna be invaded but i don't wanna be uncomfortable i wanna be a no clear process that they're not gonna get their big has the minute they come again hertel going opposite all like monique too hard when you that what i find with people in organizations they oftentimes know what they need to do in order to blue hot in particular area will be theater section clay but they look at new organization and say it's a huge that we should i could never turn it they don't even try this roster go yeah it's easy optical that you're gonna go toward the has that changed me have that severe a change maker it's people who really believe it may be opportunity per go out there actually opted that's that's about thank yet they have this incredible edible capability leading people will that change in shit like this roster combination of that changed my that in yet leadership behavior you meet people make that change her life you're describing i guess characteristics texture ristic's do you see them as trait that you either have or don't or these things but you're gonna adopt and learn and anyone could do it well i think you are naturally quite an edit it so they are characteristic also behavior and so i think my my friend behaviors i did a survey of a thousand leaders globally you at uk germany girl in china in what i found is that the people who have most destructive in other words capable of driving x financial change of the one thing that who characteristics first of all they haven't opened that change it just having my choice that they change it's a good thing not a negative thing so they one choice that sort of well i think any other part is they have those capabilities behaviors where it's not about them but but everyone out at the bug developing a relationship their followers and really harlingen firing on the chili she go those interesting combination of these two hey thank you question can change that yeah first of all you could start to fully change their minds that even the ones that were passed and that's backing you gravitate towards con that not by partnering at the kicker over warm ups people who have that open up my back that kind of drag your open your mind towards these new opportunities right in that any other part of it and learning and behaviors that is as we know leaders are or their created female working with strong leader in the states who are capable of driving drunk people inspiring now we have road work in it's it's neatly hardy up at the leader cleaning waiting room that so i i think they basically these two things are possible that spread eagle archetypes at four different archetypes both leaders in a district to grow somebody be strong impulsively called the dealer off and i feel like the cream but just after the fact are capable of doing gold being open and meeting people worry that who are open to chase secretary still dealing with the problem solvers they're the ones who could look around the corner see all the things that could go wrong already working for that might hang it gory guest expert the veal it's it's a really powerful combination of each other to make destruction organization get the full meal at that and that's been a word got back that's that's just the way to go for it yeah yeah that makes a lotta sense i can't remember where i heard or read that that that sort of a a full of many visionary leader is is that they're too optimistic domestic and they is completely missed or ignored risks endanger so that skeptic probably is the one who sees that you know and and maybe they they each a compliment or tame each other and together they create that holistic picture yeah and i think you could build on that one phone call call the agent provocateur which is a person who does talk a great game but when it comes down to actually the nitty gritty how to get it done really does not tend to work in that direction and right now we have a lot of juice posture to pay a lot of there are up in the air a great description of the company structure die and then they walk up and say he's under a squad it was like that sounds great how we do it and yet you have that gret that that detail that structure that the most interesting thing that came out of my research is that the most disruptive company actually have a tremendous allows order of structure of flash that they are really like downing get things done he has we as human could only tolerate so much change yeah if you're going between a a lot of change a lot as well the way that you that that determination of how you worked together athenee content so the packers will be this bad but well you're shaving with that pocket so huge and they show you know you could look at on that they change because we don't have a focus on how you count organization people think this roster is are disorganized and chaotic jet y'all bears so busted out of order that is so interesting to me it i mean it really does sound like a paradox what you're describing i'm struggling a little bit to think of how that would work in practice in the sense that if you have structure an order and processing yet you're changing a lot then does not throw reaching out the window and wouldn't none of those things apply for very long well we think about what you're changing your any changing business and you're changing how you're going to work but if you have a prostitute tweeting that change then he becomes a lot the process is how you share information at how you make sure that someone at the cautious you you hold those end charity organization in when you know how you're going to change how you're going thank you meet with each other and make decisions and they changed becomes a lot easier what's really hard and you don't know don't give me an example a company i studied it it's wild way who are in the news a lot say as you at the same at they have spyware built into that kick nology allergy but put that aside and look at how they actually in her heidi innovative company they have forty percent of the people involved in some form of are indeed a lot of people or it may have been so many yeah exactly research and development and so somebody in you becca stan concrete something that you know of course light there it put it into their database in shooter innovation in research and development today and then somebody in brazil and see that and they say un would spread their client so that changes happening but it's happening at a global level across the hudson that many different country it may have thirteen different research center innovation center and they were all structured the same rights property in the same way but what a scientist neutral one location to another they don't miss a beat it as a walking into the same lab thank that everything it's insane so that they could focus on the work not how people do things differently each center that takes a lot of friends in as a result of that i mean people talk about why wait they they kind of joke everything has a prospect in fact if they start something they don't know the pocket but they call the rockets engineer at n they how they did it so we don't have to figure it out so we could focus on the work cool okay that that helps thank you in and actually we just recently had an episode sewed with liam martin and he was talking about how creating process season structures is one of the ways to help you become more efficient so that is a great compliment so you're saying that disruption has three different components i think we've probably they started talking about it already strategy leadership and culture and i'd love for you to give us a highlight obviously in your book you're gonna this is where are listeners you're gonna be able to get a lot more about that but if the high level version of what does each of i mean and why most of our listeners the talent growers were not maybe necessarily at the top of their organization calling all the shots why they should pay attention to this show yeah it again like i focus so much on the mindset that has changed around me eric strategy so as you said how do we achieve are jacket and one of the biggest problems as well to go along way you tend to focus focus are saying let's be focused on today what the costs are and just wash it all about the future but what i found that they only way to oriented company may be tough choices today could take on these obstacles make them back as an unpopular business but if they have a really clear focus of who you're future customer is that is the center of strategy is not gonna say the customer today don't matter but you're customers are where he'd eighty oriented so you should take on that paperwork today and again i realize that not everybody a new audience in focus on the customer in their daily job but i think everybody in oregon station need to be aware of who that were at individual find out oh hr we don't even use still oriented organization is all about i mean it wouldn't exactly customer yeah so i i will college really bad if you're not focus on the customers gary i think you're working on the wrong thing they like so you don't always understand that in the further out into the future you above the market but it will be because you're only looking up next quarter guess why you're only going to orient you're worked for its next border if you're thinking about what you're gonna look like five years the investment you work on today will have their impact five years now and that's the key difference making destructive organization like that are now they're making their best today internet so that strategy and then.
