Tesla Quality Falls Short in J.D. Power Car Survey
"The first time ever tesla included in. Jd Power initial quality survey, but it might have been happier to say off. That list Filipinos got all the details fell. Emily is sort of an interesting survey because they're not technically ranked with all the other automakers, but they do have enough responses from Tesla owners and we'll talk about. The test results in just a bit. Let me show you the top and the bottom automakers in terms of quality initial quality. This is what people say after ninety days. You've got dodging KIA tying for number one in third place. It's titled Between Chevrolet and Ram at the bottom of the list for luxury Maine's. Some of these might surprise you. The one at the bottom will not be surprise. You've got Mercedes than Volvo Audi and coming in number thirty one out of thirty one brands. Brands Land, rover, which is often at the bottom of these lists, and yet they have a lot of intense loyalty and sales remained strong as for Tesla while it's not officially ranked, they did get answered from thirteen hundred Tesla owners in thirty five states and based on that Jd. Power says that the initial quality is the worst in the auto industry in terms of problems per one hundred vehicles. Most of the problems have to do with fit and finish things like wind noise squeaks and rattles the kind of things that people say look. This is what happens when you push manufacturing in order to build in some more vehicles, all of this coming. Coming on a day when Nitsa the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has launched an investigation into what's going on with the touchscreens of sixty three thousand Model S, these are model S.'s built between two thousand and thirteen in two thousand sixteen, the look into why number of owners have reported having problems with those touchscreens, whether that relates to a recall or some kind of a notice from the company remains to be seen as you take a look at shares of Tesla wants more remember that next week we'll get the cue to delivery data from Tesla and whether or not they have to alter their guidance Melissa for full. Your deliveries remember they still technically. Technically are saying that they plan to deliver at least five hundred thousand vehicles worldwide this year, though you give given what we saw with the factories, shutting down in April and a number of the other issues around the world, the question is whether or not they still plan on keeping that guidance. Yeah, it'll. It'll be much harder to hit that year end target if they fall short in the second quarter. Phil thank you

AI Changing the Workforce, Interview with Valerio De Stefano
"Hello and welcome to the AI today. Podcast I'm your host Kathleen. I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. Our guest today is of Alario Distefano. Who is professor of labor law at Keio Leuven Hive Alario? Thank you so much for joining us on today. Thanks so much for the action thrilled to have you. Welcome Valerio and thanks for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners and tell us a little bit about your background and your current role especially as it relates to artificial intelligence for so professor of Labor Law the University of love and in Belgium and before debts I was some Offi several stage National Labor Office. Which is a you and specialized agency that deals with everything that concerns labor and work there. I started working on technology. Impacts on labor may be working for a number of years about platform worth in the economies and he was the first time I started to reflect on automated management platforms. Vastly use technology to manage NBC. Fine Worse for instance. They allocate us in worksheets using. Gps and you. Software to constantly monitor work by collecting for instance customer reviews on cutting out of the Latham's workers debts on a meet. That very high on this that is required to be met are for taking screen shots of people that were aligned to show their clients that they are actually working so blaffer work as being used as a pilot for management by But management by algorithms is much broader than that so my interest come from the label sides and when we talk about and management and automation and occupy. It affects the workplace. Well we see that. A loss of the debate is about the wanting of jobs. How many jobs we'RE GONNA LOSE COMMISSION WE? They're all but still my competent job or not so much on the quality side of it's our technology is gonNA impact on my every day working life out not used to write my performance discipline my work so I think an researcher I am trying to fill these gaps. San One of the ways between these by editing a special issue of a journal Competitive Labor Law and policy are now that's east about automation artificial intelligence and labor protection and especially should we gather he contribution of many labor experts. Sociology economies lawyers investor relations specialists to investigate out technology. Easings reducing the workplace The facts our worke life beyond question all losing jobs. Yeah that was a really interesting insight. Thank you so much for your input on that you know. Some employers are having their employees use wearable tools that track emotions and stress by collecting data on heartbeats and the tone of voice for example. So you say that. Most of these practices should be urgently restricted because losing one's privacy especially their internal privacy mental privacy arguably threatens one of the core elements of being human. Can you explain to us why you say this? And what data. You may have to show how it can be misused so having a system the trucks your emotions and read your facial expressions or the tone of your voice is percents agreed invasion of our private sphere impersonality so basically when these options. I'm giving a data concern my most privates. In evening we will aspects the most private People of my life my thoughts my emotions and in some cases I might not even be much aware of these emotions of deceased themselves so basically managers know more about me they night about myself and these basically economic up on stress levels in general is generates huge information asymmetry now permission cement always being there at the workplace but he's really tilting the scale on the employer side. This is why. I think this should be restricted in a way because we are experiencing something that was completed America off in the past. The facts that employers manages can read my mind now so the question is not about Audi St that are be misuse. It is the very thing collection of the data. That should be called into question using us. His answer no in my mind better and faster than I women to share busy formation with other people percent abuse so we do not need data on specific issues is practice already are issues pursuing my. You know it's interesting because data is at the heart of AI and people have been freely giving away their data for many years in exchange for free services. And I think for a while we weren't even thinking about it we were just signing up giving away information leading different companies and systems and apps that we were using track us and didn't think twice about it but what happens when the workplaces start requiring employees to use these tools that collect data on them you know such as facial recognition technology or wearable tools that are able to track a variety of different things. This is where it starts to get. Maybe a little bit more gray where we're not necessarily giving it out so freely but almost being more fired too. So what have you seen discussed around this subject with regards to laws and regulations so first of all as a lawyer? I feed the assumption that people even customers even as the mets F- truly consented to give away all. These data is percent questionable. Now when we started to get away those day that when we hey member of facebook or twitter or whatever we did we could not imagine how far reaching implications of data could be an Audi. St could use it was not a manageable of the point. And even if this was describing fine prints in thousands of pages of terms of references. Nobody haven't read those sense of Serres. Now if we want to give you becky ambulance seeker lawyer. I mean it can be enough. Yes you gave your consent to even read the fine print so bad for you but as a society any tens of policy we need also to question much consent in our bailable and valued consent loss when we start to all these away now acids from days when it comes to employment fierce. Give bits even more complicated because employment is percent. Somebody us. Fowler's augured the other party at employers in any legal system as some amount of authority over workers they can be supplying the workers. They can monitor their work. The director work so it is already unbalanced situation. And when it comes to employment because of these unbalance consent is really never to be taken for goods in the sense that most people don't have a choice whether to work or not whether to apply for a job or not whether to be subject to certain vises tools than that monitoring techniques or not so there is not each choice and therefore there is not a free
Interview with Oki Mek, Special Advisor, HHS
"Hello and welcome to the AI. Today podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Schmeltzer. Our guest today is okay. Mack who is the senior advisor to the chief information officer at the US Department of Health and Human Services? Hhs So okay thank you so much for joining us on Ai Today. Thank you for having caffeine wrong. Yeah thank you so much for joining us. You'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. And tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at HHS. I am a. I am the senior adviser to Sasebo. And I'm also the technical integration. Lead but edgy reimagined but my background is really cybersecurity but my principal around cybersecurity. That just knowing cyber alone is not enough. You really need to know and understand the business I've been with. Hr FINANCE BUDGET GRANTS ACQUISITIONS. I was leaving sponsored to help onboard new employees for personnel security and badges and laptops. So I find that to be very critical and crucial in terms of modern nine station in the government just knowing to three sixty just understanding what you know what budget stream is coming through. What is the budget calendar Audi acquisition services and products and even just getting people on board with badges an laptop? Just getting that three sixty view and been very critical in terms of you know modernizing trying to innovate in trying to change the landscape Embracing Emerging Tech and dealing with big data paradigm shifts excellent. Yeah it's definitely the government's been very interesting. Adopter not just technology in general but especially with artificial intelligence. Because you know is is a transformative technology. Just like You know many of the other big transformative waves in the Internet and mobile and big data and the cloud and now five G. and then blockchain so all of these technology transformative right. They had changed a whole lot of things or multi. System the multidisciplinary and so obviously there are many ways that we see being applied to government agencies organizations. And we've been very impressed. One of the things that been talking about here a lot today is sort of the many ways in which is being adopted. Not only an industry as a whole but especially in government very impressive actually some of these ways that hopefully it's making the government more responsive more efficient more effective more. Give it more visibility into things. So can you tell us some of the ways that? Hhs is currently adopting AI and various solutions. And maybe how those ways are unique to. Hhs or perhaps similar to what other of different governmental agencies are doing in this space so we start of area to the CIO. And I started a program like celery leveraging ai machine learning and blockchain. It was the first watching network that had been authorized to operate in the federal government but in terms of a I think we are using similar to agency mainly we use it to clean and format the data and as you know you deal with a lot of data set the day. I need data. The biggest thing is cleaning the data. Ninety five I believe ninety percent of it is cleaning the data. People WanNa do they WANNA do machine learning they WANNA do. But they don't focus on they're gonna up a root of baking because Clinton. The data is the biggest component of that process. So we use a machine learning to basically normalize the data from different data sets using supervised and unsupervised learning to normalize the data. And then we also get into linear regression as well in terms of predictive analysis. One of the main thing that we'd do accelerate is looking at prices paid and just as so large we do about twenty five billion in spending on products and services just minding data and cleaning the data at it was a big call just to look at. Why are we buying things that different prices and a good example is? I'm just throwing the example while we buy that. Dobie pro at cms for aided aqua- eighty dollars per license and buying that CDC thirty dapper night or licensed an opportunity to mind data to come to the table to be able to negotiate a different price. You can't come to table to negotiate without having that insight so data claiming and looking at data mining and looking at predictive analysis the three main usage for a for us. That's great you know Melinda. We produced a report last year. And then we did a follow up report this year Dataprep prep and data labeling and I think that a lot of people underestimate how long it's going to take to actually get their data into a usable state so it's great that you pointed that out because I think that people underestimate the time and the difficulty that sometimes it can be actually get data in a usable state. Data's the heart of AI. So you need that. For these systems to learn as a government agency adoption of new technologies such as artificial intelligence can bring its own unique set of challenges that sometimes the private sector doesn't always run into. These can be issues around privacy data usage. What can and can't be used where it can be stored so can you tell us some of the challenges you've seen with Ai. Adoption in your agency and how you're overcoming them by the biggest mistake that people do is looking at the technology before they look at the business and the mission of agency. I always say that does no such thing at it. Project and the business project with it components. You have to start with the business. And what are you trying to saw? Most of these challenges that the EPA my experience I've been in a government close to twenty years half awaiting contractor in private industry and also have in federal government. The challenge is not the technology challenges to culture is leaning chain change management and. I don't think we do not a strategic planning. Just because we have one hundred idea doesn't mean we pursued ideas. We need to look at you know strategic planning comes into play. You may have one hundred ideas but you should only pursue one idea through strategic. Planning you know. The first thing is really feasibility studies. I didn't even feasible to at any regression issue. Anani downstream impact. Accountability is big. I think in terms of trying to modernize. Can you prove a concept just because you have this idea? People might think is a crazy idea but if you do it at a tangible way that you could prove that idea is feasible and it's scalable because you wanNA start small and scale that big as well. Sustainability is huge as well just because the project is a success. Doesn't mean that sustainable as your culture your agency your privacy mature enough to take on this new shining toy you know this new technology but the important part is marketability I we. I can't overemphasize that did not marketability is people. Don't think that the government market but you have to market you ideas. You have to win. The hearts and minds of the workforce the people that They coders you have to be able to market in different ways to senior leadership to middle managers workforce. I think culture is the biggest obstacle. But I think doing a thorough strategic planning analysis and putting emphasis on marketability analysis is key and the biggest part of marketability is human design is really engaging the workforce I'll model in terms of accelerated that. We're not building the solution. We are allowing the workforce to go to solution getting them engaged yet here at thoughts and pain point incorporating agile depth. Bob You know building something. Every two weeks and bring him back to them is a Saab issue and we cycled out every two or three weeks and that really is the key of getting people to lean in and to win the heart and mind of people.
"audi" Discussed on Hands-On Tech
"As they do in many of their newer models is full support for Amazon Alexa. And it's actually built into the infotainment system so if you haven't Alexa account setup which I have set up right now you can configure that and use that to access your Amazon Music Account Or to do any of the other functions that you would do with an Amazon Echo device when you're at home Without actually having to have an echo device so if you have some smart home features like automatic lights or Thermostat or for other things are controlled through Alexa. You can actually control those directly from the car so as you're driving home for example you can have it. You can tell it to turn on your exterior lights or open garage door without having to press any buttons and you can just use voice control for that and as I said you. Can you also use it to play any music that you have so the seats in this car are really comfortable as they typically are in in any out vehicle very nice materials is really? We'll put together great finish. It really feels like a luxury vehicle and one of the knocks on Tesla. As good as Tesla vehicles are in many respects at the price point you pay for them compared to comparable premium vehicles from other brands. Don't actually feel that luxurious. Most of the time. Yeah obviously you're giving up something here too for the Audi relatives in Tusla in terms of range and performance This is not a slow car by any means. But it's not gonna be able to drag race against a Model X. Performance It'll do zero sixty about five and a half seconds When you enable boost mode but it's really designed to be more of a mainstream product not a performance vehicle Audi is working on a performance variant of the Tron. That's going to be coming out Probably sometime in twenty twenty one I think and So we've seen That they're working on three motor variant. This one like most. Tesla's has two motors front rear up to two hundred horsepower. Each in the standard mode they actually put out about one hundred and seventy five horsepower. Each so about three hundred and fifty five horsepower total And then when you enable the the boost mode that will get you up to A little over four hundred horsepower Later this year Out He's going to be introducing a new variant of the Trot called the sport back which rather than having the sort of SUV. Traditional SUV wagon kind of horizontal roof. Line all the way back instead. it features a sloping rear back. So it's more coop like and that one We'll be actually going to be making some changes in the battery management system To use more of the battery capacity finding so far that they're battery durability is better than they anticipated so it will actually have more range it's expected to have an official range rating of about two hundred and twenty two hundred twenty five miles per hour and eventually those changes We'll probably be migrated back into the standard e Tron as well and going forward A. Tron. Is the the badging that out? He's going to be using all of their plug in vehicles. Which is going to be primarily a battery electric vehicles but also some plug in hybrid models electrical system and this vehicle is a four hundred volt electrical system which is typical of most current vis And it supports charging rates of up to one hundred and fifty kilowatts But and it also has a very robust throw management system so manages the temperature the battery of keep the battery from overheating which can cause damage to it or keep it from getting too cold On the batteries cold. It also can't charge fast so they've got an a very robust Temperature management system in this this battery pack and then in some of the other Higher end models that are coming up We've already got the Porsche tycoon in the market. I haven't had a chance to drive that one yet although I did get a chance to ride in one prototype last summer. Tycoon uses an eight hundred volt electrical system. Which is a higher power system It'll it has support for up to three hundred and fifty kilowatt Charging capability and Audi has another model in other coming out late this year which is built on that same platform as the TICON. That's called the each ron. Gt Very sleek Four door coupe. Like hatchback Similar proportions to the Audi a seven and That vehicles coming out towards the end of this year. Although with what's going on right now may get pushed back into early. Twenty twenty one all right. Let's get to the bottom line. So they out succeeded in their stated goals with e Tron. This car very much. Audi in all respects anybody. That's familiar with modern Audis and likes them. They'RE GONNA they're gonNA love this vehicle but it's not perfect it's on the pricey side this particular one eighty five thousand dollars base models star about sixty seven thousand dollars before incentives. And that's that means it's not gonNA be a mainstream vehicle but out aren't mainstream vehicles for their premium brand. It's a premium brand no problem there. The range rains not great. I think it's more acceptable for almost everybody. Two hundred and four miles. I drove two hundred ten miles on this thing before I pulled into an electrify. America's station still had nine. It's showing showing on the range meter so getting two hundred and twenty miles. Range is very very realistic in normal weather conditions. And you know that's generally enough for almost everybody you know. Most people don't drive more than forty miles a day. So you know except for very long trips you know. It's not a problem and I charged it up from almost zero to one hundred percent in about forty five minutes at an EA station. At one. Hundred and fifty kilowatts there's over four hundred electrify America stations now across the country plus hundreds more from charged point ego and and other network providers that are also starting to offer similar one hundred and fifty kilowatt charging rates. So you can pretty much drive this thing anywhere you wanna go. Just like with a Tesla who the Super Charger. Us going to have to stop a little bit more frequently For those fast charges finally the the biggest functional complaint I have about this thing is touchscreen interface for the climate controls. You saw the split dual screen dual touchscreen system with the infotainment navigation on the top climate controls on the lower screen. The top part is fine for using media maps and so on the bottom screen for the climate controls is terrible. That interface is atrocious. Really hard to use while you're driving if you want to adjust anything if you want to turn on the default or trying to get through that to turn on the window. Defago does not work every manufacturer. This is not just Audi. Every manufacturer needs to go back to just straight up. Rotary dials physical controls for climate control. So that you can give a quick twist to just the temperature just the fan speed adjusted direction where you want the airflow and leave it at that it does. We don't need high tech for climate controls in cars at least not while we're still driving now. I've complained a bit about that you know. And that's that's me some people like touchscreen interfaces and cars. I'm not one of them but aside from that you know it's not a deal killer. The rest of the vehicle is so great to drive. It's roomy it's comfortable. It's quick and electric zero emission. So if you're interested in the premium electric suv go check it out. And Audi dealer.
"audi" Discussed on Hands-On Tech
"Options. The Nissan leaf the original test the roadster and of course the Chevy volt which was more plug in hybrid than electric. But we'll let it slide over the last decade we've had a bunch of other issues come to market but not everybody was into in two thousand ten including the Volkswagen Group you know at the time. Volkswagen was trying to sell something that God clean diesel. Well as we now know clean. Diesel wasn't really quite so clean and after that the scandal broke in two thousand fifteen. Volkswagen group completely pivoted towards electrification. And they're now planning to have seventy five different electric vehicle nameplates on the market by twenty twenty five. They launched their first two dedicated electric vehicles in two thousand nineteen the Porsche. Taikang which we haven't yet driven although I have had a ride in it and this went the Audi e Tron. It's a really nice car to drive. Let's take it for the first thing you'll notice when you get into the Detroit is that it's nothing like being tesla rather than going for the sort of modern minimalistic approach that Tesla's taken particularly with the model three but also with the S. and the axe out decided to go for something that's more typically outy back in September of two thousand eighteen when they did the reveal the tron. They explained to us that what they were aiming for was to create an Audi that was electric something that would appeal to customers. That wanted that the traits of an Audi. So what you see here looks very much like any other modern. Audi really nice materials very typical of Audi very nice leather some Alcantara on the door panels. Soft touch materials everywhere. Real Wood Trim on the top along the DASH here and Also typically of modern Audis got dual touchscreen displays here so there's actually three large displays to in the center stack their touch screens. And then the what they call their virtual cockpit digital instrument cluster display and the the two center stack displays here. The lower one is primarily used for climate control so heated seats ventilation and so on and then the upper screen has other vehicle controls as well as a main infotainment system so you navigation audio system and so on one thing. That's unique about Audi's approach to their screens. It's not the typical you know. When you touch your tablet or your phone you actually have to press. It's more along the lines of what you'd get with apple modern track pads which don't actually physically move but give you a haptic feedback that makes it feel like a clique. So let's go for a little ride First thing shifter is rather unique instead of having a big shifter that actually physically moves back and forth. There's actually just switch here on the on on the the end of this handle that sits in the center console. He pushed it forward to engage reverse. And you'll see that the backup camera overhead three sixty view camera light up and then he is your your index finger. Push the switch backwards to engage drive mode. You may be able to hear the sound the humming sound that the Tron is making drive along through the neighborhood here at low speed bullet twenty miles an hour. Modern vs almost all make some sort of sound to provide alerts to pedestrians to let them know they're coming. Because unlike an internal combustion engine vehicle generally not gonNa hear this thing coming at you the driving down the road. Each ron is actually very quiet. Just as most are most of what you hear coming through the vehicle is road noise from mostly from the tires. This particular test unit Has the optional. Twenty one inch wheels running on all season tires But you can also get the base model on eighteen inch wheels which will actually give you a little bit better ride quality one thing about if you opt for the bigger wheels and this is true of vehicles if you opt for bigger wheels and tires you end up sacrificing some ride quality because you end up with tires have a shorter sidewall so they're not as compliant when you're going over some rough rough pieman so this first generation e Tron fits into Audi's lineup. Roughly in between the the mid sized Q. Five and the larger three row Q. Seven SUV's the conventional crossover utility vehicles that That sells it's about Four or five inches shorter than accused seven eight inches longer than a Q. Five and unlike the Q. Seven. It's not a three row to row. So it's a five seater but it's a very comfortable five-seater it's on the larger size for two row. Suv passengers in the backseat. Will have lots of room to stretch out. And you also get lots of cargo space in the back as with all electric vehicles the tron incorporates. Regenerative braking is one of its features Normally it defaults to an automatic mode when you lift off accelerator pedal. We'll just coast So it doesn't do any region but there's paddles look much like shift paddles on the back of the steering wheel here and the the paddle on the left is marked minus the plus is on the right. If you tap the the minus paddle you could manually control. How much region you get so you can see that when I lift off. Now I've put it on the maximum region mode when you lift off vehicle slows down quite noticeably. If you don't like that if you prefer a more traditional approach that feels like an internal combustion engine vehicle than You can turn off that region When you're coasting and it'll just coast and maintain your current speed. That's not as efficient You won't recapture as much kinetic energy And put it back in the battery so it's generally a good idea to Go with more region. If you if you don't mind the Whitfield's so I've been driving this vehicle for the last several days trying to find out how much actual real world range. I can get out of a full charging the battery one of the complaints when this vehicle watch last year was the rather Mediocre EPA mileage rating her by range rating that it has which is only two hundred and four miles which compared to Any of the Tesla vehicles especially comparable price point is about thirty thirty five percent less or more in some cases one of the things that he's done with the Trans they take in a very conservative approach to managing the battery Because what they WANNA do is ensure the durability of the battery over the life of this vehicle and so even though this this car has a ninety five kilowatt hour battery Pack Lithium. Ion Battery pack which is almost the same size as long range. Tesla Model S. or Model X. About one hundred kilowatt hours from there using eight eight percent of that capacity so there's actually only eighty three kilowatt hours available to us but even within that range It's also it's still not as efficient In real world driving as a tesla or some other smaller electric vehicles like the Chevrolet volt so this particular intron has the prestige package So the on is available in the US market with two different trim levels the premium and the prestige and the prestige comes pretty much loaded with almost everything. There's a few options available. This one has the technology package that adds in Features like a heads up display and the Full blown driver assist system. You get things like Adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist blind spot monitoring his standard but this builds on top of that as some additional capability to it. The driver system in the he trot does have a lane centering capability. But it's not as aggressive is what you'll find in a system like General Motors Super Crews Or TESLA AUTOPILOT. So depending on the speed. You're going through a corner. It may not actually be able to hold you in there. And it's not designed to be a hands off system like supercrew says so you do have to keep your hands the wheel and your eyes on the road. One difference that the Audi has relative to The Tesla's is that rather than just relying on a torque sensor in the steering wheel to detect if your hands on the wheel There's actually capacity sensors in the steering wheel rim just as GM has in the In their supercrew system. So you know if you do have your hands off the wheel After a few seconds it will alert you to put your hands back on the wheel and you see an icon in the steering column and all I have to do is touched the wheel. I don't actually have to fully grab it and I'll have to jiggle it around like you would and a Tesla to indicate that I'm still here. I'll have to put my hands on the wheel and it'll attacked to one of the interesting capabilities e Tron has The camera that used for the Lane. Centering Lane Departure. System Also reads Speed limit signs and other traffic signals. And so what it can do is when you have the cruise control set. I currently have it said forty five miles an hour which is the speed limit along this road. Right now If you if you come to a zone where the speed limit drops it will automatically reduce your set speed Down to that new speed one of the things. They'll show you in the instrument. Cluster is as you approach Curve or in this case around about it actually slows down the vehicle automatically so you can go through safely so I have not touched the brake pedal and it dropped my speed down from forty miles an hour down to twenty five miles per hour as I went through this roundabout and then it will automatically resume the speed that I had set. When you get to back into a higher speed zone it can automatically update that as well. So if I get to a place where the speed limit increases to fifty five miles an hour sixty miles an hour it will automatically update my set speed on the cruise control and go up to fifty five miles per hour so approaching an intersection right now or this. There's a stop sign. And even though I haven't touched the brake pedal the cars already starting to slow down. And it's slowing me down because it knows on the map that there's an intersection here and there's a four-way stop sign so it's already dropped my speed down to twenty five miles per hour. This brand to a full stop here. It won't actually bring it to a full stop so this this is not be considered a full self driving system by any means but it is a very useful driver assist system.

"You heard the sad news last week. The joke who had died at the age of eighty nine. Who that you say? We'll Cologne founded trader. Joe's The neighborhood. Grocery chain that Trans for millions of people shoppers and employees alike into cult-like fans the impact of his markets has been so significant that the Washington Post called Colom a cultural icon. There's no trader Joe's near you will let step back for just a second and I'll tell you the story. It was nineteen sixty seven joke loan than thirty seven years old had built a chain of eighteen convenience stores in California when gigantic seven eleven came along and he realized he couldn't compete according to the New York Times. He had to find something else to do or one day. Colom read that sixty percent of young people who qualified to go to college. Were going thank you? Gi Bill He also read that. Boeing was building a plane. The seven thirty seven. That would give more people the opportunity to travel overseas. He assumed more international travel would make Americans pallets more adventurous. The New York Times reported the idea for trader Joe's store with fresh produce sophisticated flavors and good wine at an affordable price was born. He opened the first one in Pasadena. California that year famously. Colom conceived of Trader Joe's store for the over educated and underpaid historic would serve budding foodies. Who wanted something more than they could get it a typical supermarket but who couldn't pay a fortune for it and something more was what he built. Quirky stores with a South Seas Flare shelves stocked with Exotic Cheeses and gourmet foods from other countries and eventually natural foods and organic produce. He also trained cashiers to be both friendly and authentic a tradition that continues so strongly today that following Coloma's death one woman tweeted name one mental health professional. That could teach me as much about emotional. Intimacy is a trader Joe's cashier the hawaiian-shirted workers often seem so unusually pleasant. That people ask. Why seem so happy? It isn't simply good. Customer Service training that accounts for the smile no Colom also believed in treating employees well today according to the trader. Joe's claims that its workers are among the industry's best compensated employees. They receive annual raises ranging from seven to ten percent. Health Insurance starts on day. One more than one person tweeted that trader. Joe's covered health crises that other companies would likely not such as the woman who claimed that her colleague faced a two million dollar bill for brain cancer treatments but with trader. Joe's health insurance. He paid nothing as the A. P. noted many workers have stayed with trader Joe's for decades in an industry marked by high turnover from Cologne Fox. Good food at affordable. Prices came hundreds of store brand items like Granola in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy two rather unheard of here in the states cookie butter frozen Mac and cheese also California wines unheard of prices such as the Charles Shaw wine still referred to as two buck chuck. Although today it costs a little more outside. California in Nineteen seventy-nine Colom Sole Trader Joe's to Aldi Nord German grocery chain. Not the same one that owns the Strip down. Budget PRICED AT SUPERMARKETS. Colom remained on a CEO Until Nineteen eighty-eight. The original of the company is still firmly intact today trader. Joe's boasts five hundred stores across the country in two thousand fourteen. The New York Times described the unique chain is equal parts gourmet shop discount warehouse and Tiki Trading Post. The company is hardly without its challenges. It faces a giant rival in whole foods owned by Amazon. All these which is owned by German firm. Audi sued a sort of second cousin to trader. Joe's owner Aldi. Nord is making a big push in America and reportedly beats trader. Joe's on price. Then there are complaints about the downsides of popularity especially given trader Joe's famously small stores in parking lots there are the long lines overcrowding running out a favorite items and too many choices

"Auto analyst extraordinaire here I know he's there in Chicago getting ready for the big Chicago Auto Show first of all Mr given have you had a sneak peek into the show you you had a few things this is going to be mostly about pickup trucks SUVs what a mid cycle refresh you Chevy as the new P. court ox Jeepers got a mole hobby version of its gladiator pick up something you can take out in the desert that that things along those lines that and we're hoping to see a couple of other refreshes the vehicle today nothing major but you know bread and butter all right in the middle of the industry pick ups and SUVs this seems to me the edges right now when it comes to car manufacturing I know I mean Toyota of course all we use does well there you know the second best selling car company you in the world right behind Volkswagen Volkswagen lead the an update of its atlas here as well in the U. S. G. M. kind of have some momentum that some mock cool new products coming out with that should be on a Chevy I'm sorry GMC Hummer that going to be coming in there and a couple of years are getting a lot of attention as well all right let's go go look into the a numbers now the big three Ford Chevrolet GM if you will and Chrysler how are they all doing right what what what you're about to be our Chrysler a little bit later today when when it comes to four they had a rough sport ordering people were not expecting at the they had a lot of calls from the new GM the new contract with the UAW they also have had a lot of warranty issues that actually deal with this city Chicago they had trouble getting things right at the Chicago assembly plant that's cost them a lot of money so their earnings were a disappointment they were hit on wallstreet because of that GM actually surprised people up making a tidy little some even with the strike and saying that the the the coming year was going to be slightly better so white now GM's earnings what were the most impressive of the bunch but we're waiting for fiat Chrysler corruption charges against the Nissan smiley has had it looks like a damaging effect on the brand although the they make you know I think a nice looking of vehicles what's the latest with the Nissan now and can make a make a correction here worldwide yeah the the big issue with Nissan is our SUVs haven't really caught on that much with with with people so that his first I mean it's kind of product related things they were hot for a couple of years but they haven't had anything really you know I catching a and something that people want a while about their latest introduction was nice to was the new center but that was a small car last night at the show they showed the front tier they say it's going to be redesigned next year but they also showed somebody who had a frontier from seven that they had driven over a million miles and you know that was meant to show the liability simply put the two vehicles side by side they look a lot alike so it it kind of show people that they haven't updated their line up in awhile so that that's what's hurting them more than the Carlos Ghosn thing interestingly enough the Nissan of course Honda a Toyota kia of a lot of the Asian markets is still staying with the the standard as sedans if you will it's probably good move right now with the forty Chevy kind of getting out of that department what do you think things were going to ally with the American public are we still going by either small SUVs are midsize SUVs for the most part outside of the old like for example your F. one fifties in your Chevy truck somewhat heavy you have a small to mid size SUV seems to be the bread and butter the market I mean that is the family car so to speak so there will still be around I I talked to an analyst to set their settling in at about twenty two to twenty five percent of the market so you know that that that's a substantial part of the market but it's not enough for everybody to support it so with the Detroit three leaving that market in the Asians pretty much staying in that market as well as folks wagon you know water was counted kind of found its level we with just a few name plates in the mid size sedan and small car market you know they can still have healthy sales verses everybody having it so it it seems to be we found an equilibrium idea about forty second let's talk a little bit about Tesla I mean they've been killing it on the stock market they did have a a break yesterday finally his people separate but we're gonna start to do some celebs but with an alley tests about a let's talk about the brand so it what time what kind of saturation do you expect as a it seems to expand and a what's it going to mean in fuel costs you know not just fuel costs but also taxes because a lot of taxes or related to fuel when it comes to the United States and a lot of the states as far as road repairs and such yeah I mean a lot of states are going to be looking at how they change their tax base but you know this will be a lot of reviews on the market that was a warning about Tesla but Tessler still has the bars I mean the Audi you try on the jaguar I face are out there but task was the one that the people are looking at and the reason the stock price went up as they actually got rid of some of their execution issues that have been kind of well it building the vehicle so you know is there going to be a burst that bubble who knows people have been saying that for years and the stock prices been
Investing Your Resources with Craig Groeschel
"We get to have a conversation with Craig Rochelle. He's one of our summit twenty twenty speakers and he's the pastor of one of the largest churches in America and today today he's going to teach you the business owner on one of the topics that he's deeply passionate about resource allocation. Because here's the deal if you're a business owner you you need a focus plan for where you are investing your time your talent your money and your energy and has craig lays out in this conversation conversation. There are a few things about resource allocation that we all need to focus on so we're talking about resource allocation nation. And if you think about just the two words what our resources resources would be the time the money the staff the assets. Whatever we we have to move the mission forward and then allocation comes from the word allocate which means just to direct or distribute and so the most simple definition that? I had that I work with our team. On with resource allocation is investing the available resources in the present took -CCOMPLISH your goals and your objectives in the future. What do we have? How can we invest to bring about the desired results in the future? So that's my best definition of resource allocation and I love that you use that word invest and I. I know that you use that word intentionally. Can you explain to us kind of the mindset around that word invest. Yes so Alex. In my early years years of leadership I tended to think about spending resources rather than investing them and I think a lot of times business owners leaders of nonprofits. We we think we need to spend the budget. We need to spend our time. And in my opinion that's kind of a lower level thinking as leaders what we should do instead thinking about spending what we have if we change our mindset to investing then it really does change how. We approach our resources because if I'm spending I don't expect to get something back or at best. I'm getting a trade meeting. I might spend seventy five dollars in exchange for a pair of shoes if I'm investing seventy five dollars though. I'm hoping for a better return. In other words I might get back eight hundred dollars if I invest it wisely and so as leaders of businesses and says or whatever our organizations would be it sounds like a play on words but I really really believe. It's way more than that in our mindsets. We don't want to spend our resources because at best we're getting a trade we want to say. How can we take whatever we have? The people time the energy the money any kind of capital assets and and how can we invest them toward the mission and believing this will get us a better return in the end. You said that it was a shift. You made individually internally Mullaly do you remember what the motivation or the impetus behind that shift from spending to investing was. I wish I could say it was like in a moment. I think it kind of evolved over time in the early years of our leadership and I say ours because I might have been the point leader but I've never been the seller leader. We've always lead with a team. We thought when it came to resources we often had a scarcity mindset and not an abundance mindset if you have a scarcity mindset. You always tend to think. Well there's not enough to go around we'RE GONNA lose out and we're going to be super super careful and that's why someone with a scarcity mindsets generally afraid to invest because they I think if I invest in. This doesn't go well. I'm not going to have enough. I think in the beginning Alex mindset had to grow from a scarcity mindset. Meaning you know. We only have so much money. Money to we actually can create more money. We can create a product that brings money we can cast vision for change lies which attracts money and moving. I'm from scarcity. We don't have enough mindset to an abundance mindset gave me the ability to then start shifting my assets from spending them and always afraid we're not gonNA have enough to say okay. We can invest meaning. We can take risks and what we actually want. Is We want to return. And so before long we started using a really common business term return on investment. But that's just a normal phrase shoes all all the time everywhere in our organization when we invest our time our people our resources we buy this piece of land. We've hired staff member. We buy some new software. We want uh we want to return on the investment. What type of return do we expect when we invest this resource and if we can get our whole team thinking that way not just the senior leaders the executive team or whatever but everyone on the front lines thinking this way it will change the way we manage resources are organizations and I love that you kind of clarified there? This is not just related to your financial decisions for your organization. This is where you're spending your time individually as a leader. This is where you're investing into into the talent of your organization into the leadership of your organization. It kind of runs the gamut. Is that right. Well one hundred percent and I think a lot of times as leaders. When we think of you've reached source allocation? A lot of people tend to drift toward money. You know where we're gonNA invest the resources we have. We have a limited amount of capital or such but I think that it equally Julio or more important than money would be our time because we can earn more money though we cannot make more time and we do have a limited amount of time is so as leaders. We can be really really busy. And not have a great return or we can be really strategic on who invest in where we spend our time how we try to use czar influence and resources in so unquestionably our time really matters and then our people would be really at the top of the list of our valuable resources and if we see them not just as someone who's going to get us return but as we see them as an investment we want invest in them and help them get better if they can grow in their leadership if they can become more capable leaders if they can expand their influence then ultimately that can help the whole organization win and so yes. We have to think broadly sadly our people matter. Our time matters are influence matters. All these things are resources that we need to strategically allocate and. We're not going to become great by accident and many ways. That's what Dave Ramsey teachers all the time you know every dollar has a name. We know where it's going to go. We don't get out out of debt accidentally. We have to be intentional about it. And I'm choosing you know in your personal finance. It might be. I'm choosing to give first and then then I'm choosing to save next and then I'm I'm choosing to pay off these bills and resource allocation. That's at simplisafe. That's what your team teaches all the time and that's what we need to teach our leaders and again Alex not just our senior leaders not just our finance team. This needs to be interwoven into the culture so that everyone on the team recognizes this is we are all allocating very important resources and what we do with them really does matter and I know you lay out some specific actions that leaders leaders and team should take with regard to this topic of resource allocation as you walk through these. I want to challenge our listeners to really be running through the lens of okay how what am I doing in this arena with regard people with regard to my time with regard to my finances of the business with regard to time as a whole because I think that this is a really exceptional exceptional exercising kind of self evaluation looking in the mirror. But I'd love for you to start with that first action and it's kind of related to just starting with the end in mind as leaders. We have to do Alex. We we have to clearly define the win and that sounds almost insultingly simple but the tragedy is this often doesn't happen in the organization if you walk into a business and you ask ten different people. You know what's your win. What are you trying to accomplish? You might get ten different answers. And that's not not acceptable so we always say that you can't accomplish what you can't define. What is the win? Something that we're working on this year we plan on the opening Six New Church buildings in in different cities and states. And so you could say. That's the win but Audi really limited when because if we open them all all and they all have only fifty people coming or they're all understaffed than other appropriate team members. Then that's not really a win so we can't just say we. We want to grow revenue by twenty percent. We WanNA open up Two new branches or whatever. We need to be really really really clear. What is the win? How many people do we need becoming? Look what type of revenue do. We need. What kind of culture? We're trying to create and be super super clear on the win. If we can be clear on the win then we can start looking at the second step. which is we're investing toward that when we're intentionally trying to create the win and I think a lot of times what happens is we're trying to implement what might be five or six or seven year old wins? Meaning we're we're still you know. Someone had an initiative years ago. And now we're just coasting in our organizations and we're doing what we did in the past and and not looking at. What is the fresh win? What are we trying to accomplish today? If that's the goal then what do we need to do with our time with our money with our people.

I've been driving plates for ten years those trick I leased an Audi for four fucking years and returned it with the cardboard plates on it. Yeah. And I know it works because when I was driving through Santa Monica, Santa Monica.

Now, the same folks California legislation legislators who are fighting tooth and nail against voter ID. They don't want you to provide an idea when you vote that's that's an attack. But they don't want you to drive a car off the lot that doesn't have a license plate on it. One way. Get some more votes. The other way gets them more money. So yeah, kinda see how their angling a little bit. Yeah. I don't care. I still have the fuck and plate on my car. Yeah. I'm gonna keep it on as long as possible. And I'll tell you what just for fun. Just because I have me money. I'm just gonna fuck put the dealer plate on it. And I'm when I get pulled over after the first I'll get a fix it ticket. I'll just pay it and put the fucking dealer plate back. How about that? When he got his car he got a stack those dealer plates. So when it got some blasted he just replace it with the with the new one. Yeah. Have Kevin Hench was doing a two and eventually they figure out that the dealer plate looks like on there for three years.

Now, we can generate a temporary code that. You would give over to the valet. He'd write it on the tag is. Now, you don't have a key fob to hand him and the valet can use that to enter your vehicle and drive it to its parking spot. And then retrieve it when when it's time to to leave the restaurant, and we do is we we call the like, the Corolla your phone, Texas. Who's it could we call this? The Corolla code because I feel like we are poster children. We have the wife who loses the backup key-fobs, but we have the husband who runs over the current key-fobs based on a bunch of false information. But still with the husband is the crusher and the woman who's to lose. And I feel like we should be posted Hedren for this new technology. I wanna know I have a bigger question about Lincoln, John that may be a little up in the ether. But maybe we'll see if we can figure it out. I Lincoln is a is a famed Mark and has a lot of history and pristine, and then went through some lean years not too long ago much in the way, something like Audi did Audi was auto union and a big deal and setting records and stuff like that. Then the eighties and early nineties came in the had some rough patches. And now they've gotten it together in a big way. Yeah, I feel like Lincoln. And I love the stories. I love it any store. I love the comeback story. I love I love it when it's an American brand, especially but what's going on that Lincoln has figured their shit out. Like, they went, you know, what we're not just going to quietly go off into the night with all these other brands, we're going to turn it around. We're going to offer superior product. And there's a whole mindset feels like just a stall like a change in. The entire Lincoln brand. Is there somebody with a thick German accent or something that we need to thank or what happened? How did Lincoln turn? It all around their big meeting was retreat where people fell backwards and other people's arms. So they learn to trust is a Twitter poll. What happened John? Yeah. So well, first of all, it's great that you recognize all the energy that that so many talented people at at Lincoln Motor Company, but putting into the effort, but there was kind of a shift in two thousand fourteen timeframe late two thousand thirteen about. How we were going to move forward for developing new products. What was our emphasis going to be? How are we going to kinda laser focus in on addressing the product and client services for Lincoln? And and part of that became this movement. We reference as quiet flights. When continental was introduced we talked about quiet luxury quite flight. It's sort of a step beyond in terms of focusing on these elements, four, simple, terms, human, beauty, gliding and sanctuary and what we focused on was how do we deliver on aspects in both the vehicle space and client services space for those elements. How do we how do we make their their daily journeys sort of more effortless? How do we recognize that time is precious to these premium customers given that money is not? Not really an object for them. But but time, and and enabling parts of their day to be simpler easier intuitive was really important. So that's why not just on the vehicle side that even this pick up and delivery process, which we expanded nationwide is so important, right? Getting a car service when it has to be.

I'm sure Audi makes a better SUV than Land Rover does but the chick who buys that car gets into it. Looks around goes a love love combined car. They don't know about torque ratios or whatever, right. They don't and they don't care and everything works. Yeah. But I if you said to me, you're going to be trapped out in the desert somewhere, you're gonna whatever I'd probably take the Audi over the Land Rover. But that interior. That's it is everything. And I've I think Lincoln is caught onto that you're going to see that. It's pretty nice and funny because that being said the this week we talk with with Goldberg about how to buy it. Right. And he bought a like a two year used full size Range Rover. That's basically new for way, less money. Hey. John davis. Yeah. Hey, how are you guys engineer? Good to speak to you chief engineer for Lincoln. We love your product. Matt has commandeered a few Lincoln's and we've gone on a few road trips.

I I really feel like Lincoln's knocking out out of the ballpark these days, and I'm not an American car guy. But I would definitely think about getting into Lincoln. We'll talk about a lot that's been going on and electric car news. I feel you tell me this is a fair statement. We're right at the precipice of like going into the electric car. Everybody doing it. Yeah. Now three years ago. It was like, hey, we got we got a Chevy volt and it's good for thirty seven miles on a charge. You know and BMW's good for seventeen miles. And then they got there. I three and that's good for sixty one miles. And it's like everyone's just kinda shaking their head. And then there's tesla and Tesla's one hundred grand, and here's what have promises and maybe deliver something else. And maybe that car was supposed to come in APRIL's not in yet June. You know, there's a lot of that. There's been a lot of improvements also says some kind of weird stuff like Cadillac has a plug in hybrid or whatever it was like how far is it go on the plug in twenty miles. And it's. So lots and lots of that. Right. And in the next year. Some amazing stuff. I mean, you know, leave it to Porsche outing when these guys start getting into the game. And they are we know we we've we've already driven the the I pace the Jaguar SUV Mercedes has that are a little SUV. That's coming out Audi next year has their e Tron again, another little SUV that's coming out. And then then the year after that as a twenty twenty model or maybe sometime in twenty twenty we've got the Porsche mission e sedan, which is now called the take can. And Audis version the Audi e Tron GT, which looks good is a sharp look in car at it's you know, it's the four door sedan version, you know, like the Porsche of an all electric vehicles, outing, the Porsche share share a platform, and and Porsche goes to Audi and says, you can share our stuff, but we have six hundred horsepower. And you can't so we'll do five ninety. And and you know, a couple of little bits here and there, but whereas the Porsche that we saw up in Monterey, and you did the walk around in a video of it. Very swoopy, very, you know. Very kind of organic looking and futuristic looking where the Audi goes, very angular in sharp, edges and has kind of like that that sharp Chris from front end of the new Audi r eight nor do you. What do you think of what do you think of this statement? And my kids are twelve when they were sixteen will definitely be driving a plug in electric car and that plug in electric car will be good for five hundred miles rain. I think five hundred is still pretty optimistic because years from now though. Yeah, I just don't know that the car companies are in such a rush to get to five hundred. I think three hundred is kind of more the yeah. What they're what they're trying to do is is more faster charging more available charts. So you're saying the air plane equivalent to it is everyone thinks the future was the Concorde. You could get to Paris from New York to Paris and under three hours. Yeah. That's not really. It's not where the industry's going the industry is more fuel efficient cheaper seats. Yeah. Bigger planes. That's kind of where. The whole industry was focused on the concord. We'd have a bunch of concords. But they're not. Yeah. That's not where the money. I just I just think there's more people saying, how do we just charge this thing faster?

But it's going to look like a Jag and it's gonna handle like a Jag and I I don't know how much of you seen it yet Bill, but all I can tell you what I'm looking at. Don't look like, no, jagged looks like a run of the mill. Electric car. Now, if you wanna talk about styling hands down, this ought he's got him both beat. You know if he asked me, so this is kind of cool and they're, they're starting to talk about like. They're kind of loose on on some of the details. We know that there's dual Motors, all wheel drive. That's going to be pretty much on par with with the Audi the jagged tesla. Let's say the tesla model x, seventy five or seventy five. I guess what it would be because they're all sort of compare right there. They're all two hundred and forty ish mile ranges. They're all. Sub five seconds zero to sixty times except for the Audi. It's five point five, but but it does look cool. They're all about. Well, the Audi and the tests are about eighty grand. The Jag started about seventy. So I guess we'll see how these things play out with options and things like that. But the Audi looks pretty good, and this is kind of where we're going right, like we have to these car companies have to do this. I'm not sure why SUV's the way to go. I'm guessing it's because. With our cars, we pay attention more to things like weight and and handling performance with the SUV's. It seems like a little extra ground clearance, some utility to move stuff around and a big floor to to add all those batteries and stuff too. I guess it seems a little bit more acceptable or maybe just makes more sense, maybe just makes sense. From a packaging standpoint, you can, you can. You can add quite a bit of a weight and stuff with batteries, but. These electric Motors are impressive. When we talked about before they're adding him into supercars and stuff to add to the performance. And now we're getting these all electric versions of cars. It'll be interesting to see how this Audi comes out. I don't know much about if this is a straight up platform is built on something like an Audi, q. five that much. I don't know. I think the record of quiet on some of those details, but. That's going to be the new playing field. The new Plainfield it's going to be this Audi versus tesla versus Jaguar, and we're, we. Adam Kroll is wife has the tesla, so we've definitely got that as a benchmark. We're going to have the, I pace Jaguar pretty soon. And then I think this he's probably year or so. What do you think Bill? Would you get a? Would you electric SUV. You know, I I'm gonna fight it until I until I can't fight it anymore. But there's no question. This is where the automotive world is going. I can't deny that. And yes, I would purchase one at some point, but no, I am not at that point yet by any means, you know, I mean, I, it's a very responsible way of looking towards the future and I get it as you drive in LA traffic, which you and I both do daily. Yeah, as of late. I mean, you're seeing a lot more of these crossovers, and it is definitely whether it's the way we're going or whether it's the way we're being pointed towards going. It's it's a fact, and you know, these are three very good models out there that have choices. I mean, you couple years ago or year ago, we only had one choice and. I'm curious to see what these other manufacturers that they're making them Tesla's. Tesla's business. What what the new crossovers coming out right now. I mean, it's tesla. Obviously. They told her the market there for a while, but I think design wise everyone is going to supersede but tesla puts out there. But like I said, it's it's, it's it's a logical progression..
