EU leaders seek to ramp up pressure on Belarus president
"In Belarus? The pressure is growing on the country's authoritarian leader, Alexander Lukashenko to step down after nearly three decades in power protesters. Say the recent presidential election he won was rigged. Neighboring countries are watching this very closely. The European Union held an emergency session today. NPR's Lucien Kim is in Moscow in another country watching this especially closely. Hi, Lucien. Morning, so President Lukashenko says he's now mobilized the army on the country's western borders. I mean, we've seen massive protests. We've seen the crackdown. Is this even more escalation in all this? Well, I mean, he's escalating the situation. President Lukashenko is because he's refusing to talk with the opposition. He's basically said over my dead body. The opposition has formed what they're calling a coordination council to facilitate dialogue. But Lukashenko says this is just a front and he's already threatened to deal with members of this council. Appropriately. Today, he ordered his internal security officials to bring calm back to the country. And he's also playing up this idea of a foreign threat What you were asking about since Belarus borders three NATO member states. This, of course, could be one way for him to draw in his only ally. Which is Russia, Huh? Ok, So you say that obviously there there three European countries on the border here. European leaders held this meeting today T sort of address this whole tense situation. What action is coming from that? The EU leaders decided not to recognize the results of the August 9th presidential election, and they also said they would sanction Belarussian officials who are responsible for vote rigging, but also the violent repression of demonstrators. Charlie Michelle, who is the head of the European Council, said the yew stands in solidarity with the people of Belarus and their right to elect their own leaders, he said this is not about geopolitics, and that seems like a direct response to the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, who earlier said Europeans were playing geopolitics. I think it is important to mention here that Bela Rose, Belarus inhabits this. Kind of gray zone between the European Union and Russia and has never really expressed any interest in joining the European Union. Well, I mean, we saw another country sort of caught in the Middle Ukraine and how Russia addressed that after there was political political protest there, talk about what the Kremlin is doing reacting as they figure out what to do with Belarus on on its on its border. Well. Belarus and Russia have very close political, economic and military two ties. And a Russian President Vladimir Putin. Very much views Belarus as being in his sphere of influence. So far, he's been keeping his cards very close to his chest. But today his spokesman finally broke the Kremlin silence on Belarus. He said international pressure on Lukashenko's unacceptable but he also said an interesting thing, he said Russia does not see the need to send troops into Belarus. That's something that Lukashenko had hinted at over the weekend. And what about what about the United States? Or are we seeing any reaction from from the US at this point? Well, the U. S has been pretty absent in Thiss whole discussion. Even though Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was traveling in Europe last week. He did say the US is working with European partners on some kind of response. And it does look like the Trump administration is letting the European Union take the lead here. All right. NPR's Moscow correspondent. Lucien Kim, Lucien, Thanks so much.

"We Win Stadium you will be at home. I can promise you will feel you support. Stay safe. We are still with you and. You'll never walk alone. That was liberal F. C manager Jergen KLOPP in a message released yesterday. That will bring a tear, not just the eyes of his supporters. The dare I say anyone who cares about the most popular sports league in the world. That's right folks. After a three-month hiatus. The English Premier League is back today. Roger Bennett from men in blazers fills us in on these frantic few remaining weeks.

Bay Packers, leading them on a fourth quarter drive two feet, my beloved Chicago Bears, and I can't wait for that movement. They'll probably deserve it. And we're not talking about bears football today. The wait is over the English premier league. The most Popular Sports League in the world is back after a one hundred day hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic Roger I'm sure you've been getting your fix from Bundesliga but I have to imagine the return of English. Soccer is hitting a little different for you. One hundred days feels like one hundred years to be candid. I've been staring at squirrels running up trees in the park, and feeling the adrenaline burst of a run through midfield, watching raindrops charge down my window and feeling just an incredible wing-play into play of missed from the primarily, but yes, it's back today with its global ratings I mean in Britain for much of Europe for much of the rest of the world outside of the United States, it's kind of a seismic as the NFL and the NBA rolled into with the Pantheon of heroes and villains to moments of glorious ecstasy, searing dispath fuse with dodgy haircuts snack tattoos. One hundred days off. When are going to have ninety two games scattered almost daily over the next couple of weeks. It's coming back because we love it because we miss it. It's coming back for. Hard news commercial reasons ultimately to an economic decision. It's going to come back and ghost game situation where it's fabulous. It's going to be different. The lack of an audience will have an impact on the football. We watched, but most importantly it is going to be good enough. It's GonNa. Be Great enough to connect us to a ruling global conversation and that's ultimately I think. Think we will miss about sports as our calling them. Ghost Games I hadn't heard that got left the Germans. They have a name for everything. Lay. They Call Them Guy Bela. And that is what they will be. Sam Darnold knows a thing or two about those back to English premier league, so we hit positive with most of the season done with exception of Liverpool they're. They're still to be decided. The top half of the table. Seven teams vying for five spots determine who will qualify for Champions League and Europa League which for those who don't know are the midseason European tournaments to be held next year. Roger Liverpool have clinched Champions League. Spot Manchester City has of course been banned from Champions League for Breaking Financial Fair play rules so that. That spot remains open despite city being second in the League. Right now. Arsenal wolves Chelsea Menu Lester Tottenham Sheffield all in the mix. What are you expecting to see from the top of the table? When the race for Champions League qualification, which is a bit like football's march madness, it's big tournament in which the best teams in the world. You're rail, Madrid, your boss Alana's. Para Sanjay Man's by Munich's compete all. Big English teams won't be in that for brand reasons for competitive reasons for commercial reasons and is. And completely wide open at the bottom of the table. All say English football has some Incorr- ellegation, which is if you watch game of thrones? It's a bit like the moon door. Teams get flung through that in baseball, the worst teams every year like the Orioles in the mall in which is flung out of the major leagues, the mooted, and in that place. We had the Tulsa drillers around rook. Rook Express and that is, it's a searing. It is a haunting. It is a savage palm of the global football tradition, and you have six teams at the bottom who are fighting to avoid what can be economically devastating their revenue roughly hauls flung out. The Premier League is savage for the fan base. One Minute. You are watching your team. Take to the glamorous fields, Manchester United and Arsenal the next.

Analytics in the NFL
"Going to talk about these Brown the whole topic of analytics because Mike when you think of mate Alexi often think about major league baseball. And you know Bill James's cyber metric revolution. Should Billy Bean moneyball the book movie all the rest of it and wanted Billy Bean's main guys was Paul D Badescu. CUPID ESTA LA. Believe in the as he goes the mets eventually. Now he's with the Cleveland Browns. Tired and twice sixteen says famously. I don't know too much NFL. But I've got all this information all this analytics we'll make things work also infamous said he didn't think Carson Wentz was the top twenty quarterback now now as we look at your column today. Athletic is always. You can subscribe the athletic read. All Mike's work there the war between analytics and football people is pointless. The real challenge is finding someone who can properly understanding process all the data and then make the right decisions and how to deploy and I'm not sure. The browns have solved that problem yet. They hire Kevin Stansky is their head coach. Why why are you skeptical at? They've solved it. You know I like Kevin and I and I don't mean to be critical Kevin. But I think Kevin's a really smart guy. And I think Kevin's obviously you know well. Educated aided came through the coaching ranks. The right way started on the ground floor worked his way up. I just think it's going to be a real challenging job for him because he's got to manage a lot of personalities in that locker room and deep. Pesto said at the press conference that they were looking for a leader. And you know. And I think that Kevin's probably more of a guy who's low key. Quiet it you know has a shared vision with everybody and that doesn't mean he's not qualified. That just means to me I think the vision of what the browns think they need. And what what. I see the browns needing in terms of somebody to come in and be able to handle Odell Beckham because look like Odell Beckham. The little like Michael Jackson Right. I mean he's is not compliant right he will show up on time. He'll do what he has to do right but the one thing he will do is he will create people following him he will create and so what he doesn't come to. Ot Days where he doesn't want to do things or he wants to go out. Color outside the lines dominic does he. Will you know get the people follow him. And who's going to challenge him to do that. Who's going to challenge him to do that? You know and I thought it was funny. Ad When you know they asked Stefanski Gi you know what did Mayfield think of you like. I'm not really worried. Would Baker Mayfield thinks of me. I'm worried about what I think. Baker Mayfield Shinto like I don't have to make Baker Mayfield Happy Baker Mayfield to make me happy. And I think you can look at all these analytical numbers and it's great but at some point football's a game a leadership. Football's the game of toughness. Football's a game paddle. Football's a game of conditioning. Football's a game of making people do things they really don't WanNa do right. You need intelligence. You need all those things but you need grit. You need some of that and I just think that the way they handle this they obviously got somebody who's more collaborative than dictatorship and. That's what they wanted on it. I'm not sure that's what they needed. As you mentioned the com- analytics is just another word for information. And when you worked for Bill Belichick or walls work with them. You know you were feeding them. Information to quote gridiron genius. The fact you Mike Holmgren were good friends. He called you scooper because you were so tune in and what was going on around the NFL. Hiring coaches like homeroom is a convoluted path to building a staff. It required Walsh to spend lots of time and energy coaching his coaches. That was why he hired guys. Who are intelligent before there? Anything else guys. Were not typical products. The football industry his special teams coach. Fred von happen may still be the only coach in NFL history who read Sylvia plath every day before heading out to the practice field. Maybe the violence of her poetry help to prepare him for the carnage of kickoff coverage. That's a great quote but just to further the point about Walsham ballot check and how they assemble their staffs. Yeah I mean look. Nobody was more cerebral lim bill right but he's a real tough guy. Nobody's more cerebral than Bella check. And he's a tough guy and Fred. Von Was a tough guy you know and he'd read Sylvia Plath and he was was excluding the part that she put her head in an oven and he literally read that every single day it was unbelievable and his vocabulary was incredible vocabulary. Sorry but they had a sense of toughness and I think that parcells is the same way. parcells wants to hire guys from the Military Academy. He wants smart people right. Everybody wants smart people. They want smart people but they also want smart people that are going to be branded and do what they wanna do. And demand from the players not collaborate from the players and I think that this analytical nonsense is truly we're all in the information business so all the information is really important in my belief is that we're missing in the point when somebody puts on and says well there in eleven personnel. And they're doing this and that like do you understand what the eleven is and what they're really trying to accomplish. I mean Tevin Coleman was the running back that was the main back this week because Kyle Shanahan wanted a running back. Who's GonNa Threaten Mike Zimmer in the backfield because Mike Zimmer was gonNA play three linebackers now once that happened that according to the chart? That's twenty-one toward the analytic he's in twenty one personnel but he's really not because he's got Coleman in the game he's only in twenty anyone with Coleman because he's got three linebackers so how do you differentiate that you know. How do you break down the information you know? There's so many times I've been in meeting with Bela check. I'll be watching tape. And I made a comment. He said well the only reason they're doing that is because they're doing up about anyone into that you know like oh I got it now I got you just taught me something right. Like that's the game
Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot agree to merge in giant auto deal
"Chrysler and Peugeot makers among them dodge ram jeep and Alfa Romeo's well as Peugeot situation an Opel have announced the final terms of their merger. A company were fifty billion in dollars. The number four carmaker buy cars sold in the world which is big. But let's get back to that making money thing shall we the automaking business right now. Now is expensive. You gotTA figure out electric self-driving for starters but car sales are lukewarm and more people are sharing cars. Every day so profits fits marketplace's Mitchell Hartman gets going. Consumer demand for autos is soft from North America to Europe to China. They're global trade tensions since and says Garrett Nelson CF RA research. Automakers are really looking for a way to increase their scale to share the enormous cost associated. Did it with electric and autonomous vehicle. Carmakers now have to make massive investments in research and development and engineers says Carla Baillaud at the Center for Automotive Research to produce for both the current and future market an internal combustion engine many times hybrid and now many any customers are demanding a pure electric. Then there's the vehicle of the future is brain. The software says Ned Hill at the Ohio Manufacturing Institute. A two and that's the autonomous driving systems. There's no vehicle brand the wants to give all that money to Google or apple and in the future. A lot of people may not even buy cars Carla. Bela says the whole industry is moving toward usership rather than ownership with fleets of electric an in autonomous vehicles shared. Or least I think nobody knows right now. Really if they're gonNA be profitable with these new business models we certainly haven't seen many of the Guarda be profitable yet. There is one potential bright spot with this shift to to non fossil fuel combustion engines and non human driver's says David did wisden at Morningstar. I do think there's potential for better margins at least for the firms that survive in the New Paradigm on electric vehicle has a lot fewer parts arch meaning the cost of materials and labor.

Following London attack, second attack in The Netherlands on Friday has EU spinning
"Three people injured in another stabbing attack. This one in a busy shopping district in the Netherlands according to police who are now asking for help from the public the new attack coming just hours after a different stabbing in the heart of London that attack has left two people dead. The suspect killed by police. They are also calling calling the attack in London. An Act of terrorism. Let's begin with CNN's Bianco. Bela who is covering the Netherlands attacks. Obiang what we know at this hour. The moment all we know is that an attack happened on Friday evening in The Hague in the Netherlands. This is obviously the key city. It's the seat of the Dutch. Parliament is also the weather international. The National Criminal Court is based the city itself has a population of around half a million and this was a particularly busy evening. As you may be able to see. From some of the pitches it is the black Friday Sale Ale. There were plenty of Christmas. Shop is out that on the streets and from what we understand. The attack happened within a department store on Big Market Street. We understand that three people people have been injured. They've been stopped and we're still waiting to hear more details from the police as of yet they haven't given us a motive but they have said that the situation is quote complex Ext.. I'm also learning. That police are looking for a man between the age of forty five and fifty apparently wearing a tracksuit and asking anybody who might be to identify by somebody of that description to come forward with more details but it is definitely a developing situation as I said nothing has yet been disclosed on the motive of this attack but within the context of the other attack in London. Today which you mentioned obviously there's an increased sensitivity to increase towards this and we'll be monitoring the situation version closely bianca. Thank you and we'll continue to check in with you. Of course throughout the hour as we learn more about our that attack on the Netherlands a deadly terror attack unfolding folding in London police confirming just moments ago. Two people have died after a stabbing or the iconic London Bridge. Three others were injured. I'm deeply saddened and angered that. Our City of London has again been targeted by terrorism. It it is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to inform you that as well as the suspect who was shot dead by police. Two of those injured in this attack in the London Bridge area have tragically lost their lives. Police officers officers shot and killed the suspect who was wearing what looked like an explosive device but they believe that device was in fact fake witnesses recorded would appear to be members of the public public tackling. The suspect you're looking at that here taking away the knife before the suspect was ultimately killed by police and I do want to warn you. Some of the video were about out to show you is graphic. CNN's dictate. Walsh is live for us in London tonight. Nick British Prime Minister. Boris Johnson says the situation has been contained to the best of their knowledge. So what's happening on the ground right now in the next twenty minutes. It's also that British prime minister will meet with top security officials in the sort of basement of Downing Street to discuss this unfolding situation behind me though. We just learned from the head of London police that actually the fish monger hold on the other side of the river. There is where they believed the attack began. And you can just see up the Brita tent erected by British police where we understand the actual killings themselves or they tackled. The assailant will restraining of the assailant seems to have occurred. But here's how. Today's events unfolded Terry Returns to London Bridge recorded by witnesses for multiple angles. A group of people appear to restrain a man on the grounds of the public. Pullback firearms police drank one man away then. Two shots heard male suspect was shot by specialist government offices from the city of London place and I can confirm this suspect died at the scene a number of other the papal received injuries during the incident. I'm now in a position to confirm that it has been declared a terrorist incident. I can confirm it this time. We believe a device that was strapped to the body of the suspect. Is I hope explosive device. A knife is seen pulled from the scuffle. Get still many ordinary. Londoners appear to have thrown thrown themselves out the assailant to restrain him. I also want to pay tribute to the extraordinary bravery of those members of the public. Who physically intervened to to protect the lives of others and for me they represent the very best of our country and I thank them? I was so in the Boston. Matheny attacks in two thousand thirteen basically expands whereas at the math. And sort of twenty minutes or something Eh but just before it actually happens and some very similar thing of just having a lot of people just running and nobody knew what was happening and just feel like huge amount nazi-era on their faces and you could feel it as well in the energy of just everyone staffing out. The identity and motive of the suspect remains unclear. Similar horror befell London Bridge in June. Two thousand seventeen when three attackers drove a van into pedestrians and then launched a savage savage knife attack some also wearing hoax explosive vests police killed the attackers in minutes but still eight victims died after that attack. Roadside barricades went up in London. Some visible in these videos today see London Bridge would have been bustling at that time with commuters and workers in the city the extraordinary speed of the police response and reaction of members of the public. A sign of how practiced anticipated the horror of such attacks are in London. Of course the key and answer questions. Who was this man? What was his motivation? Terror related the police say it is unclear what ideology ideology may have been feuding him and sad- say to UK security services have long pointed a mental health often being contributing factor to instance like this but London Bridge. Now trying to get back to normal. Almost heartwarming scenes of seeing restaurants as inviting police. Patrolling the area trauma safe in for a cup of tea but that bridge behind me now. Still Jammed with the buses that were stopped by police as the instant unfolded. You can see the lights still going on their London. Sadly to used to this kind of attack Erica. Yes indeed. Nick Payton Walsh for us in London. Tonight thank you as we look at what we do know as Nick just pointed out for us there. We don't know a lot at this hour about the suspect but the fact Paul that British police are saying this is a terror attack again. We don't know the motive. I haven't seen a claim of responsibility. Ah To this point anyway unless I somehow missed something but waste on what we do know in the information. That's come out Paul. Where's your mind at this time? Well one interesting detail. You told us this fake suicide us. And we've seen the use of fake suicide vests in several Isis inspired attacks in Europe in the West in recent years of one was on the very same bridge two years ago when three attackers wearing fake suicides. did a knife attack on that bridge and the surrounding area. There was also an attack in January two thousand sixteen in Paris or the police station where the perpetrator how to fake suicide. Vest and more recently in Catalonia in August twenty seventeen the perpetrators hot fake suicide vest and in those attacks the reason presumably they were wearing fake suicide versus because they wanted to be killed by police because they wanted to become martyrs because in that war twelve knew they they wanted to go to paradise for. Doing that was not the case with this attacker in London. Today we don't know yet because the police are not telling us what what they think the motivation was. They're not specifying yet This was a jihadi attack was interesting too. is the location So with all of you frankly we have talked far too many times about
Apple's Plan To Help with The California Housing Crisis
"Having changed the way we communicate hate each other apple has said it wants to sell the housing crisis in its home state of California. It's two and a half billion dollars to help do this. So what's going to happen to all the money. Well let's hear from acting. La Bureau chief. Collateral Bela who joins us on the line. Now it's a lot of money what's been announced. Yes this plan. That wasn't fueled by apple earlier this week. specifically targets the state's affordable housing crisis. Now the plan includes several different initiatives Apple will offer a one billion line of credit to organizations that are building housing for low income people. Oh and another one billion dollars will be used to help first time homebuyers. And here's what's interesting because they specifically mention A first time home buyers that are essential service personnel school employees and veterans. Now this is due mainly to the fact that in communities such such as Cupertino where apple is based schoolteachers for example and Members of law enforcement offense struggled to find affordable housing near their jobs apple will also donate land worth to an estimate of up to three hundred million dollars in the area of San Jose. And it's for a project to build. Thousands of new affordable housing units and another one hundred fifty million dollars will go to support various affordable. Housing projects objects are wrong the Silicon Valley region and they're still a final fifty million Dot are going for a nonprofit focusing focusing on homelessness in Silicon Valley to Apple is not the first company to try to do this. Is it that there are other companies. Which you've you've addressed? What is clearly quite difficult housing crisis? No it isn't in in January this year for example Microsoft announced that it would provide wide up to five hundred million dollars in grants and loans to promote affordable housing in the area of Seattle where they are based and and then later in the year in June at Google announced their own initiative opt to a value of one billion. US dollars which included a big chunk of that money that was of Google owns land That was going to be used to support the development of at least twenty thousand new units in what they described -cribe at all income levels. This isn't the San Francisco Bay area but we don't even need to look that earlier in the year just last month Facebook made public its own initiative to offer one billion in grants and loans to support the construction of twenty thousand housing units in the region and unjust. Now this week you have now apple entering the fold with a similar initiative now all these plans are coming after many years of complaints lanes by the local communities where these companies have their offices and HQ basically. They've been the communities have been complaining would would affect that. These tech giants giants simply are not good corporate neighbors and you have to put on top of that. The facts that whenever they have a presence via the new officer a brand new HQ The housing that already exists around it around the area will go up in price and whatever land is available salable will become too expensive for the people that live there to actually be able to afford it in fact it was Senator Bernie Sanders. Democratic presidential candidate who laid into APPALOOSAS. Listens in. That room was made saying that the company helped to create the housing crisis. Not just by basing itself in California but also by not paying special taxes. Yes it is interesting to fuck. That's already sender so far has been the only Democratic candidate that has Weighed in in on apple's a new initiative because his criticism of big tax hasn't been asked central to his campaign as said for example Senator Elizabeth Warren Oren Now Sanders basically was very blunt. And saying this is hypocrisy at play and broaden it out to all tech giant's not Just apple All of these that I just mentioned that have similar initiatives saying that basically this is just putting a bandaid in gushing wound That's day it created You know it's an all in all it just seems like a spectacular PR exercise for these companies To get people to talk about how much much to GONNA help But if you add up the numbers of the housing that's GonNa be created by these funds with the housing that was lost By their presence. We don't really. I know exactly who wins. When you tell you the numbers what are the Californians? Think of this I mean no they. Happy that the You know such tech giant is now trying to says says it's time to address the housing problem. The overall consensus is that there's a deep misunderstanding By these tech companies of how how deep and how severe this housing crisis actually is in recent years. The San Francisco Bay area has become the most expensive housing market in the United States of America and Los Angeles County Suffers from housing. Costs are far above the national average. In of course you you have a state that is battling

Could California Get an Autobahn?

That means four percent on checking out that new restaurant everyone's talking about and four percent on watching your team win at home. You'll also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet? Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bomb here. Germany is known for several awesome things including veer brats. And of course, the autobahn bundles Audubon as it's known in Germany is really just if federal highway system there, but to visitors the allure of the autobahn is the speed limit or lack of one cars can top two hundred forty kilometers per hour during normal conditions on this famed freeway that's about one hundred fifty miles per hour. And now, a California legislator is proposing. A Bill that could make the state home to what is being called the American autobahn John Morlock, the Republican state Senator from Orange County introduced state Bill three nineteen in February of two thousand nineteen to relieve traffic congestion along interstate five and state route ninety nine according to the proposed plan both roadways would get new lanes. One northbound and one southbound drivers in the new lanes would not have to abide by a speed limit though, the existing sixty five miles per hour. Limit would remain in effect in the. The existing lanes that's about one hundred and five kilometers per hour. The idea also could provide an alternative California's controversial long-delayed and possibly canceled high speed rail project the proposal comes on the heels of California governor Gavin Newsom announcement that the bullet train as planned is too expensive at an estimated cost of seventy seven billion dollars and would take too long to build. There are no official cost estimates for the Audubon Bill, but in February Senator Morlock told the Los Angeles Times it could cost about three billion dollars. He also said the money would come from the states cap and trade program which requires companies to offset pollution by purchasing credits. If plans move forward the American auto Bahn would be constructed along major freeways with Bela Bach area, which is about eighty miles or one hundred twenty nine kilometers north of Los Angeles at the southern point in Sacramento or Stockton. At the northern end that means theoretically vehicles travelling north at one hundred miles per hour. In the unrestricted lane could make the trip from Sacramento. Tila Beck in about three hours coin that Dr takes over four hours well over depending on traffic. Aside from improving drive times for those along that route the authors of the Bill claim it would also help reduce congestion, which would in turn decrease greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles stuck idling for that reason. The Bill specifies that funding should come from California's greenhouse gas reduction fund which regularly supports transportation and transit projects that reduce pollution. Critics point out. However, the missions go up at high speeds, so encouraging people to drive faster means there wouldn't be any net reduction in pollution, in fact, Bill maga- Vern a spokesperson for the coalition for clean air told SF gate that the net reduction in emissions theory is ridiculous. In addition to the pollution, concerns. Critics are also worried about the risks. To drivers Maureen vocal a spokeswoman for the national safety council told USA today that numerous studies demonstrate that Wednesday's raised speed limits. They can expect an increase in traffic fatalities statistics from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that in two thousand seventeen speeding was a factor. In twenty six percent of all traffic fatalities that accounts for nearly ten thousand deaths. Several states across the US have increased speed limits. For instance, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming allow drivers to travel eighty miles per hour on certain highways and Texas allows eighty-five miles per hour along a specific stretch of state highway one thirty that's up to about one hundred and thirty seven kilometers per hour. However, the current maximum speed limit in California is still seventy miles per hour about one hundred thirteen kilometers per hour. With some stretches along the proposed Audubon. Route a little bit lower. Californian's shouldn't get too excited. Though, yet the Bill has a long way before ever becoming law and may never get there. If it passes the vote in the states house and Senate it must then be approved by governor Newsom. For contrast Germany's autobahn covers seven thousand five hundred miles. That's about twelve thousand kilometers, and there are some sections with speed limits. New drivers in Germany are actually trained on the autobahn to learn how to handle the high speeds and the country's licensing process. A lot more difficult time consuming and expensive than it is in the United States if California's autobahn gets approved this three hundred some mile stretch of road might only be a start to a larger system.

An exclusive look at numbers showing users are leaving Facebook by the millions from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Kimberly Adams, informed, Hollywood. All the bad press about Facebook might be catching up to the company new numbers from Edison research show. An estimated fifteen million fewer users in the US compared to twenty seventeen. The biggest drop is in the very desirable twelve to thirty four year old group. Marketplace tech got an exclusive first look at Edison's latest social media research. It revealed almost eighty percent of people in the US are posting tweeting snapping, but fewer are going to Facebook. Larry Rosen as president of Edison research. He says while Facebook points to global growth, the US numbers are a meaningful drop. Fifteen million is a lot of people no matter which way, you cut it. It represents about six percent of the total US population ages twelve in older, and what makes it particularly important. Of course, as it is part of a trend is the second straight year. We've seen this number. Oh down. And obviously the US is the biggest market in terms of dollars. And so it's going to be a super important market for Facebook or anybody who's playing in this game. But if we look at Facebook's earnings report, they are still reporting an increasing number of active users. So what's behind the difference between what the company is saying? And what your survey found, right? So when they're producing those numbers, they're typically talking about their global platform. And this is a survey just of the USA. Furthermore, we're asking about usage, we're saying do you currently use Facebook and Facebook is probably measuring on do you ever open the app or do ever use it on any level, and are those people going somewhere else or leaving social media altogether? We only show trace numbers of people leaving social media altogether. Obviously just transferring their usage the big gainer interestingly is under the same roof as Facebook as their co. Owned Instagram, and do you have any sense as to why people are leaving Facebook in particular? So the survey didn't specifically ask why are you using Facebook less or why have you stopped using Facebook among those who say that they have obviously there's tons of other information out there. Whether it be the politically related aspects to Facebook, there's conjecture about as Facebook has become more popular among older people, whether that's younger people, and then obviously, we just have to consider whether some of these other social media platforms in particular, Instagram, and Snapchat are just more appealing to younger people. I should also mention that while we've seen dramatic reductions in usage among younger people. We're still seeing some gains among people like for instance, fifty five and older. And so that is maybe not the advertising target Facebook is necessarily looking to work on. But it's not as if all his law. Their Larry Rosen is president of Edison research. Of course, we'll have a link to those social media numbers part of Edison's broader, infinite. Dial report up on marketplace dot org. And now for some related links in this case more details from that infinite dial report, it's pretty ironic that most of those Facebook departure seem to have gone to Instagram which being owned by Facebook doesn't necessarily have better policies. And it's also worth noting. Facebook is still the most used social media platform, according to Edison with sixty one percent of people in the US using the site Instagram is a distant second, Edison. Also looked at media hardware smartphone ownership continues to rise about eighty four percent of us. Two hundred thirty seven million people own those pocket. Computers. Smart speaker ownership had a big jump in the last couple of years and keeps climbing about twenty three percent of us have them now. With Amazon's Alexa in the lead. And an interesting trend is developing around smart speakers people who get one. One tend to want multiple in two thousand eighteen only about a tenth of smart speaker owners had several now about a quarter of owners have three or more. I'm Kimberly Adams.
