"It's important that she got one of these winds finally I'm very impressed with the way the way i mean. Aside from the wind shout. Ever nissim. Over which i. I really enjoyed that much as well. Just a like the way she's punching the clock and keeping on coming back for more and y- that must be so much scott issue there from her previous near misses and yet she keeps coming back wanting to break through it And yeah i. I was very interested to your discussion about her. And where where the mix sits now. And i was gonna ask you whether you agree that she is in the mix. Yeah i think she. I think she is. I think she is. I think i mean look. It looks like we're going to get new champion bob. A new grandson champion dabo. Chica is getting handily bayton at the moment six one three one by arena sabah lanka and the other plans that we have left in the draw. Wha what are we looking at. We've got leyla fernandez against arena. Salamanca it looks like we've got county in a place giver against maria zachary wind suffic- the emirati kanu all spill into bench So yet and yet. I think i would make soccer. The favorite in that match against bush giver. Yes then what you saw last night. Yeah thanks belief that can give the and the way she keeps coming. That's the thing. I just this could be saccharine time. I think that usually somebody takes her out. Somebody plays well enough to take her out but i don't see that being applicable personally. I'm not actually sure on record between the two of them. I don't i don't recall too many matches between them but i'm i'm just three one over by the number of players making their presence felt. Now this is somebody's gonna grap this and It's gonna be fascinating to find out who it is over. Thanks you as one of one of the players is is trying to do exactly. that is on. The men's side is done no matter who we saw today in the first match and he for the first time looked a little bit vulnerable Surprisingly so to may he did not put baltic van design. Slip away in the manner that i thought he would know agreed a strange match after two games. I was actually googling most lopsided quarterfinals in grand slam history I didn't get very far with that search. But i just didn't have high hopes for this match. And you know. I was thinking who's going to disappear. I baltic understand slip or the shadow on the arthur ashe stadium if a race to see where the medvedev could finish before the shadow to the left. The stadium and i just didn't think there was any jeopardy in this match for medvedev going into it after the first set certainly after the second set when he's six three six love up and then the third set just as you said was weird because he didn't put him away in the way that i expected him to baltic vanish look made some little adjustments. I think some cleverer judgments he studied. Slow a little bit and then injecting. I he is. I was impressed with his tactical. Now and yeah. It wound up medvedev and stopped his rhythm. Didn't it yeah. A method upset as much in the an uncle interview afterwards. He was asked what changed in that third set any sort and he gave the credit to van. Zan up saying it was him. You know he a mess me about and then medvedev won the full set but it was type seven five but he was never in trouble and serve. I think he only lost two or three points on. Serve in the whole set. So i'm sort of left thinking well. How much trouble was he actually in in that match. Not much really. I think if if the sets of played out in a different order perhaps i might have thought that he was in more trouble but just the way it played out always felt that that was in control but yet this is the first match not been fully convincing from start to finish. I do think playing in the heat of the day is not something that he particularly enjoys. It was very sunny. Certainly down one end of the call a lot of the time. And i've seen him struggle in the heat quite recently in in tokyo in his first match in toronto as well So i think you'll be pretty pleased that he's through this portion of the tournament ways going to have to play under the sun. I suspect you'll get the first semifinal but that would be. I think four o'clock local time being shades at that might actually help him in the end But yeah they question really. Isn't there about whether it's useful to have a test or not to go through some difficult moments and my default answer is yes. It's probably good to have one like it probably helps but then i thought about ashburn. Not in the first two rounds. I thought they were useful tests and actually that was just sort of evidence of her not playing that well and not being at her best. I don't see that in the same situation with medvedev. I think he is playing well. I think it was just a bit of a lapse in the third set. An opponent doing something. He wasn't expecting the whole shade shadow. I think got in his head a little bit And actually i think. I think he's fine but it was. It was a match both six story. I love the fact that he apparently has never been to america before he ever see new yorker net flicks in things like suits him in college. Alcatraz neither one of them have been remarkable but the run that he had into that quarter-finalist just crazy. I didn't mean. I knew he'd been on court for a long time. I did not know that he'd been set down in the first round of qualifying and he won the second set on a tie-break and he was a set down in the next two matches and then he was two sets to love down in the first round of the main draw. I mean it's just amazing. What he did getting to that stage. I mean that could be career change for him. I mean just in terms of the the share resources that this gives him financially now to travel away you might want and with whom he might want He's got game that guy. Yeah definitely. I mean as you said there's a there's a financial injection that comes with that. There's a ranking injection. I think he's gone about one hundred and seventeen in the world. I think you'll move in inside the top seventy now. so here. we're getting into slams. He went have to qualify that that makes a difference and yet he's he's got something about him. He's got massive four ham when he really hits it and he's got some. Subtlety liked moving forward. He's got game. I think medvedev said he could be originally said top thirty in an adjusted it to top fifty of call him back. I mean that feels about right. I i would say right and that puts into the semifinals and he will now face either. Fit explosion seem or carlos alcatraz which which is a match that still to come in the evening session here so we can't preview that semifinal but we will review that match that quarter-final in tomorrow's tennis podcast but what we can do is catherine just come in hand on the head or she. Machine golden retriever. That.

Room, and and now What's Your Feeling David? Where from here I know that's kind of an impossible questions it depends on developments is Simon says we got plays. In self-isolation so. I mean I think Simon is probably right. It probably goes quiet I hope it goes quiet because there are several people here with coronavirus and I hope that nothing bad happens to them from here and they get really really severe does which is possible. Somebody could get seriously ill somebody could die. That is what this virus has done to other people and some people from this event have had it I've got it right now, so let's hope it does go quiet. That's nothing else. Upsetting happens from here and but yeah I. mean this isn't like. A decision one might make about a C. or or or something that's unpopular within just players. This is this is embarrassed. This is leading newsdesks. Sports Desk Sips on radio for today. I heard you were on that Catherine and were they were covering. The story there and this is this is. Matters to everybody. The Corona virus is one of the two big stories of the day of the moment and. He is a massively well known figure who has just. Created more of it. So it is damaging to his reputation in that way, and and I think he his second statement with its apology would. It's acceptance of fault. And an contrition is what he needs to continue. and He needs to. Increase the amount he's doing that in the months to come when he does speak next time I think he has to. Change, his his approach to today with with people on on issues. Particularly leading on this now well. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa, be. Interesting. I. Don't I. Don't Reddish anything of what's to come in terms of in terms of that story. We wish we wish everybody well. That's that's currently affected. Just what we've just got you Simon, your impressions on Day One. Day One of if the battle the Brits, we've had a win friendy Murray. Let's go to be a good day. Yeah well I. It was like the football. The the the some of the players probably were feeling their way back to. Fill, match tightness, and that was was moderately. Happy with the fact that he be return well, but he was not really hitting the ground strokes expects of lost balanced, and you can see I'm kind of looking around leading backwards being set, but he's still am. Sixteen six to. Color the pick of the day I thought. He was probably. My favorite indoor tournament thing he was. Probably putting the right direction. He's GONNA play Murray scenario in a match the Murray says He. Doesn't expect to win, but then they've been. Took, each other down all the way talking John I should say all the way through the build up to this event, so It was nice. Season live. Tennis would have been even better finish before nine twenty whatever it was, but it was. A pleasant return! Quite interesting what he had to say Andy, Murray about playing with no crowns, wasn't it? He he talked about actually for the for the players, it kind of in enhancing the one on one Jew aspect of the sport, and actually the intensity for the for a player. Is actually almost in some ways heightened. You felt like there was atmosphere, because was nobody's tracks through the players Michel A. And, Donovan said as well when he beat some j Clarke, he felt like it was a pro match was national sense of it being a friendly or a practice set or anything? And The level Evans and players I've pretty good they were. Done I singles matches with close, but then then on the clock it. We would have struggled to get these press conference into the paper as Happy. I'm getting. I'm getting the impression. Some an episode possibly had more than one eye on the clock. We're on the brink of. I. Your Dave Dear. Impressions Yeah I actually really enjoyed it. We were chatting, Madison, Iowa on about how we couldn't understand why, but even with no crowd, it wasn't off putting. It had a sense of drama about two and I think it's because we were interested. The matchup particular because he's only marriage return and I do think it had almost like that crucible theatre world snooka championships fill that the silence in some ways added to the tension. And I did quite enjoy the fact that they were. They were able to be interviewed mid match in that that is an interesting concept. Some words better than others, but I think I think that there is potential there for that to be very interesting whether whether you would get agreement from players to do that. Big tournaments where stakes are high. I don't know, but it's certainly a way to fill some. Some of the silences, and to just get this immediate impact inputs into the match actually just on the subject of Maria I think it's a reason to celebrate wildly personally because he hasn't played for seven months and I. Think if we went back to early this year when he was pulling out of events when he called out of didn't play Australia and things like that I think we it was. It wasn't too far off in my mind where we were a year and a half ago into in terms of thinking, his career is going to end. I thought that was a real chance. That may well still be a look. This is only one match. But I think the fact he's got himself out on the court. He didn't look great today at all. As I agree with all the things Simon said, but it wasn't terribly either. He got through the match. I, wonder if just going back to the crowds thing I wonder if it's a factor that you play in court that. That doesn't have seating doesn't have empty. Something about seeing that empty. Seating is. You know what what could have been. It's actually. Enhanced by it being just looking like a sort of legislation. Down the right I mean. Yeah that's a good point. I mean what they ended up doing. I mean I think one of the interesting things with the US. Open is the fact that they've got the inverted Commerce Cincinnati Tournament the week before, and are they going to play all three weeks on the Arthur Ashe Stadium and as you say that. Cavernous Bowl Going to use the Arthur Ashe Stadium Is always like a troll having a stadium that big with no one in it. I mean there was one word Dan Evans used. A few weeks back when he talks about about the idea of the US Open going ahead under these circumstances, he said it's intriguing, and certainly that I mean it's just a me. He might have even used the word iconic. I'm not sure I agree with that I mean. There is an intrigue about it and just seeing who handles the situations the best. She think he's thinking. This is my big chance to win a slam. As eight doesn't give to heat soliders in whether there's an asterisk..

Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing.

know what I don't know she was born in Jersey but I know she lived in Jersey but I will tell you this no she was born in South Carolina and when she died she was residing in east orange but I had the chance and the pleasure two golf with Althea Gibson wow I I'll be back in a day for so they used to have tournaments all the time and they used to have media days for different events you could almost golf every Monday for eight weeks twelve week like a program type no no well I played Enola but you can golf because they used to have media days like every Monday okay every Monday so at this one of then I forget what the event was I remember where was it was the upper Montclair Country Club on route three and in Jersey and I show up and I got there you know I was working so I got there just in

C. L. that scale quickly changes things you can have better the normal vision of course if you have twenty ten version it means that you can see the same level of detail at twenty feet that someone with normal vision would be able to make out from ten feet away so they would have to be twice as close to the chart to see the same level of detail that you see so that would mean you have a more sheen eyesight than the average person I technically had that shortly after I had laser eye surgery my vision was somewhere around twenty fifteen to twenty twelve meaning that I could see better than the average person for these sort of I. charts but don't get too excited about it for one I site does tend to deteriorate over time so you're not guaranteed to have that amazing I cite the rest of your life my eye sight slowly deteriorates even after I've had the laser surgery also their animals that visual acuity that are closer to like twenty three so let's not get too excited by this visual acuity is just one element of vision by the way there are other considerations such as peripheral awareness or eye coordination or depth perception color vision and the ability to focus on points near or far from your eyes but the odds are definitely helped move things toward a standard in eighteen sixty four FC Donners who actually worked with Alan the guy who created the I. charts published anomalies of accommodation and refraction of the ice so in that work he laid out the principles that would become the basis for prescriptions let's take a quick moment to talk about the form prescriptions take and what that actually means now full prescription one that someone with that you know I site where they might need bifocals typically has four parts to it and I'm gonna use a hypothetical prescription in order to give an example so let's say that you've got a shorthand prescription written out for you and it reads like this two point two five minus one point five zero times one twenty seven plus two point zero zero now that is not a math problem those pluses and minuses give you indications for the power of the various lenses so let's take this piece by piece that first number two point two five that represents the bass strings or spherical strength and type of lens all lenses correct for myopia or hyperopia so near sightedness and far sightedness in our example the two point two five gives us this information it's two point two five diopters remember the units that tell us how much the lens bends light and because it lacks a negative sign it means it's a plus type of lens which means this is a prescription that is meant to correct for hyperopia or far sightedness the next number minus one point five zero refers to a cylindrical lands these lenses would look kind of like a a pipe cut lengthwise and they fit within the overall glasses or contact lens and they correct for astigmatism and the axis of the lens matches the abnormality of the cornea so that minus one point five zero tells us it's a minus lens at one point five diopters actually it's not quite that simple but I'll get to that in a little bit the third number one twenty seven is the orientation of that cylindrical lends it tells us the cylindrical lands is oriented at a hundred twenty seven degrees the fourth number two point zero zero is a bifocal segment at plus to diopters and it's always going to be positive for bifocals if you don't need bifocals you wouldn't have a number like this trailing at the end of your prescription what's more you might see the letters O. D. or S. on the prescription so what the heck did those mean well D. means oculus dexter and OS is oculus sinister that is Latin for right hi and left die so dexter and sinister mean right and left so if you happen to be lefthanded like me your of a sinister persuasion insert evil laugh here away yeah prescriptions can become more complicated than the example I gave you I should add there are other factors that could be included in the account for things such as correction for I. alignment problems and other such issues also eyeglass prescriptions and contact lens prescriptions are not always the same thing contact lens prescriptions need additional information such as what the curve of the back surface of the contact lens should be that's the part that touches your eye it also includes stuff like the diameter of the lens and because I glasses are worn in front of the eyes at a distance of around twelve millimeters from your eye and contact lenses are worn on the eyes the power of the prescription tends to be different to produce the ideal result in nineteen eighty the Federal Trade Commission ruled that all I doctors both optometrists an ophthalmologist must provide a copy of a patient's prescription upon the end of an eye exam that way the patient can choose the vendor here she prefers when buying the actual glasses now I'm wrapping up here there's a whole lot more I could talk about including the way you take lens blanks and grind them down in order to make the proper lens but that would almost require a second episode and before I sign off I think I should also explain what the differences between optometrist and ophthalmologist and also what our opticians so an ophthalmologist is a medical or osteopathic doctor someone who actually has a medical degree they have extensive training in medicine and they specialize in eye and vision care they have a license to practice medicine and surgery so they treat eye diseases and conditions they perform surgical procedures and they can also prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses they may also conduct research to gain further understanding in the eye disorders and diseases and there's some disagreement about whether or not an ophthalmologist or optometrist is the best person to go when you are trying to get glasses or contact lenses and the fights can get pretty nasty because they tend to involve ophthalmologist optometrist calling each other things so I'm not gonna get into that here but what is an optometrist well that's a healthcare professional but they are not a doctor not a medical doctor at any rate they must receive a doctor of optometry that's an O. D. degree but it's not a medical degree this is a four year degree from an optometry school and that's after they've conducted at least three years of college educations so they do all the doctorate but they are not a medical doctor their license to conduct I exams and prescribe glasses or contact lenses and they can also generally prescribed medications for certain types of eye diseases and then you have opticians now these our technicians that are trained to designed to verify and to fit eyeglass lenses and frames as well as contact lenses they do not make prescriptions themselves so they cannot prescribe the glasses but they can take a prescription and make the glasses or contact lenses or fit them to you they're allowed to do that they're not licensed to diagnose or treat eye diseases or disorders and there's also another we're difference between optometrist and ophthalmologist that discovered as I was researching this episode and that's how they write out prescriptions that second number I referenced that's the difference so remember our hypothetical prescription was two point two five minus one point five times one twenty seven plus two point zero zero well that minus one point five zero doesn't just tell us the lens power of the cylindrical lands that was meant to correct an astigmatism it also tells us that the person conducting that hypothetical eye exam had to be an optometrist because it was a negative value if it read one point five zero instead of minus one point five zero the actual a fact in the Finnish glasses would be exactly the same it would just mean that an ophthalmologist had written the prescription optometrist always have a negative value for cylindrical lands an ophthalmologist always have a positive value now this does change the value for that axis figure as well so there is also a slight other difference between an optometrist and ophthalmologist prescription but it really boils down to the fact that I'm Tom interest use negative cylindrical lands designation an ophthalmologist use positive cylindrical lens designation even though they both do the exact same thing so wacky right I learned something new today well guys that wraps up this overview of wear contact lenses came from and how we all got to the point of staring at these charts and also answering the immortal question better like this or better like this eight or be one or to man I'm so glad I don't have to do that anymore laser eye surgery rules if you guys have suggestions for future episodes of tech stuff please let me know you can write me my email address for the show is tax stuff at howstuffworks dot com or you can drop me a line on Facebook or Twitter the handle of both of those is tax stuff H. as W. follow our Instagram account you never know what crystals going to share we get to see a lot of cool behind the scenes stuff on that account so make sure you follow that and as always make sure you join me one of these days for a live recording I record on Wednesdays and Fridays and you can go to twitch dot TV slash tech stuff you'll see the schedule there.
