"belkin" Discussed on The Tech Guy

"Once I gave up on that, I was much much better. So I think it's just age, you know? It's just doing it for a long time, you know? Hey, what was your tech question? Yeah, so I have a wireless charger. It's a mophie four in one charger. Good one. I've been thinking about upgrading it actually because it's not working as efficiently as it was when I first got it. It's kind of like charging a lot slower. I read a review about the it's called the site Doc 5 multi device charging station. I was going to ask you just what you would recommend in terms of do you want a dock or just a charger? So that's the first question. The site is more like a dock. It connects to a computer and then connects your devices to your computer. So that's different than charging. If you just want to charge your, look at these new gan, these gallium nitride chargers. They're smaller because they're using a new technology. And they have more wattage. This is an anchor PD. So that's for Type-C, the power delivery spec. But wireless, actually, I take it back. There's no I don't even know if there's scan wireless chargers. That's an interesting question. Wireless theories of fast charging technology is not nearly as fast as the wired charging. But it's a techie is a good company. They make good stuff. I have a lot of techie gear. I often get anchor gear, the wire cutter did a review of the best wireless chargers for phones, I don't know if it's for phones you care about or I have an iPhone 14. So they like the belkin boost, but that's none of these are that's ten watts. Belkin, they liked a lot. The boosts are fast. 15 watts is the fastest. Nothing compared to hard wired. He got a run. Leo Laporte, the tech guy. 88 88 ask Leo Michael wanted to know about wireless chargers. There's a can of worms you're opening up. I like wireless charging for phones, right? In fact, I think phone manufacturers want you to do it. It's not as efficient. I got to say, it's not as efficient as powered, plugging it in and plugging it into the port charging. In the long run, you're going to charge much faster by plugging into the phone directly, but wireless if you're charging overnight, you're not in a hurry. It's a little easier on the phone's battery because it's not as fast. At most 15 watts, and most phones you're probably talking ten watts. Which is slower. There is a little loss of efficiency, so you're wasting some electricity. I mean, I think it's not a huge amount. But it's just convenient because you don't have to, in the middle of the night, find the port. Let me plug that in. The other reason the manufacturers are interested, I think, especially apple. I think apple wants to get rid of the port on the phone. Rumors were that they're probably going to do it in 2020 four or 2025. It won't be next year. But that they will get rid of all the ports. And so you'll have to wireless charge. I told Michael at the best wireless chargers these days, it varies depending on the kind of phone and how fast you want to charge.

"Know they've been baked essentially all fall in all winter On top of that we didn't get a lick of moisture You know the last factor here was these wind storms which both says it's important to note wasn't so much about climate change It's just plain bad luck The guts not only fueled the flames but it made it impossible for firefighters to fly planes or really do anything other than just get people out as quickly as they could It almost feels like a cliche asking you this last question but is this the new normal Are these fires something people living in these suburbs just need to be ready for from now on You know I think what this is is a really sickening reminder of the true size of the wildfire danger zone Sometimes called the wildland urban interface or the wooi Many assume that area only includes mountains and forested areas but the truth is fires are a natural part of grassland ecosystems too And as Colorado's population has grown rapidly in the last few decades people are building more and more homes in those areas The state now estimates that half of Colorado's population lives in areas vulnerable to wildfires Belt shows these particular fires should be a wake-up call for policymakers a disaster that gets them thinking about how to control potential ignition sources and build more fire resistant neighborhoods even reduce fuels through controlled burns That's impractical reporter for Colorado public radio in Denver Colorado Thanks Sam Thank you Students from about 1500 schools most of them in the northeast are getting an extra long winter break Their schools are closed next week according to the data company Inc but this is a fraction of the nation's schools around 98,000 will be open on Monday What administrators considering and what are the strategies they're turning to as they try to stay in person during this wave of the pandemic Doug belkin reports on education for The Wall Street Journal and joins us now with some answers Hi Doug Hi So what's on the table here What are schools planning to implement planning to do differently during this COVID surge The big push right now is this test to stay idea where kids will be tested if they are exposed to COVID and ideally if they test negative they will be able to return to the classroom as opposed to staying home and quarantine How difficult is that going to be I know in New York where I live tests are still pretty scarce You can find them at some drugstores not most drug stores I'd say how realistic is it to get a test to stay strategy in place right now That's the $1 million question The federal government has said they're going to get 500 million tests out to the general public and that's a work in progress right now So schools states families are all scrambling to get tests to figure out if their children have COVID or have been exposed And right now there's really no good answer that's pretty much up in flux We've seen this variant spread across the country your purchase in Chicago How much is this a nationwide phenomenon How much is this something that schools across the country are wrestling with You know I think right now it's thickest in the northeast and in Washington D.C. the case culture the highest It's rolling out across the country obviously it's not going to stop there Whether or not schools are able to benefit from the additional time so that the federal government can get them these tests will I think be a differentiator of how things roll out in California and the West Coast in terms of whether this test to stay policies able to help What did school districts learn about going virtual switching to virtual learning There is this resistance it seems to doing that even on a short term basis Why is that What did they find happening with virtual learning It didn't work You know the learning loss was significant pretty much up and down the spectrum The degradation and mental health among a lot of students was really problematic when kids came back to class after these long breaks and being alone for a long time There was a lot of problems in the hallways a lot of arguments and violence and just folks were a little bit more antisocial So they're really trying to avoid that for those are the biggest three reasons Of course this is playing out at the local level but what has the Biden administration said about the prospects of schools coming back here right after the new year They've been very bullish on reopening schools They really don't want to see a return to remote learning And so they're pushing hard the department is telling all the principles around the country and the superintendents that they hope and expect that they will reopen schools after winter break that they should not go back to remote learning Ultimately the decision will be made in a school by school even classroom by classroom basis but the federal government is pushing hard to keep kids in school We've been talking about K to 12 but let me ask you a question about higher Ed A few weeks back colleges and universities indicated that they want to start remote make sure testings in place before they go back to in classroom instruction How much is this a phenomenon that we're seeing across the country You know the same pressures are in place the colleges are they also don't want to see mass COVID spread on their college campuses They're also reluctant to go remote So they're trying to balance this They're really walking the same type rope that the kid at 12 schools are they have it's a little bit more complicated in some ways and that some of these schools have kids coming from around the country so they can be bringing whatever COVID is in their hometowns in the airports with them on to campus On the other hand kids if they college level are probably going to socialize regardless So whether or not they're in class or living in a college town it may just make sense to have them in class as well That's Doug belkin education reporter for The Wall Street Journal Doug Thank you very much for being with us and happy new year David thanks very much Take care With the U.S. be ready for a major cybersecurity attack on its critical infrastructure and institutions some experts say no that the current strategy won't work because.

"That you can clamp the microphone to your desk so that you're not holding the microphone with a microphone is floating in front of your face. And that way you don't pick up my noise. But if you're using a headset like we're suggesting for some setups, then you don't have to worry about that because your mic will just go where you put it. You may want to get a USB hub to attach to your computer, depending on how much stuff you have to plug up like your Braille display or whatever else you have. Maybe your camera needs to be plug USD port as well. That's a possibility. You may also want a really good surge protector to plug all this stuff into. I love belkin. There are a lot of other great brands out there as well. You can check out. If you've got a desktop and you care, you might want to get a UPS, so Kim, do you hold a UPS? I'm sure you've told me, but tell me again. You have one. I know I do. It's under my desk. It's basically a surge protector with a battery in it, and some outlets are battery powered and some are not. So if you have a desktop and you lose power, your desktop will just go poof. Instead of gracefully shutting down or if you have a generator, you want to keep it running long enough for the generator to kick in and then generator would power your computer. The problem with the desktop is, once you lose power, it's gone with the UPS, it will power your computer for depending on how good your UPS is ten minutes, 15 minutes, whatever enough for if your home to be able to stretch your computer off gracefully. If you're not home, some of them can actually shut your computer down for you. So if you were to go away, you want to make sure that your documents and stuff are saved in case you lose power if you lose power, the UPS will shut your computer down.

"Else do you track with your find. My app like give airtight seed had like an e vite. When he travels your at. This is a good question. So yeah i do use fine my two. It's funny when i moved to petaluma my powell and former co host at twit megan maroney shared her location with easing fine. My and to this day. She and i have each other's locations. She's like my my sort of emergency contact in the sense of having each other's locations but mostly it's not for people just like soil at green await notes made of people anyway. I use it for tracking my devices all the time. Well whenever. I need to have misplaced something because i do have a few ipads floating around so i can hit that button to make them sound. And then i've got a couple of accessories that are third party. Find my including the boat. It's belkin belkin sound formed freedom. These are bluetooth in ear earphones. And i can use the phone network for that. I actually ordered a magazine wallet. Green one yes from apple. After i heard about them doing this essentially what happened because i was like wait. Does it have. Does it have like an airtight built into it. And it's just if it becomes detached from your device will mark in your in your phone in the find my map the last place that it found it or that it was attached at which point it became detached. And then you can try to find it that way. So i think it's a really cool feature and i'm planning on using it even more with that as well but yeah i any device that has fine my capabilities. I quickly add it to the network. Because i think it's great and i hope that apple continues to add this tech to it's different devices including the next version of air pods. I hope all right elaine. What about you yeah. I was really excited when i saw the wallet. Having the the find my not capability. But i guess as mag safe having the capability to tell me about my wallet but because mag safe is is not great for holding onto wallets. I lose mine kind of constantly but never leave the apartment so it doesn't matter i mostly use find my to check to see where my mother is. And when my husband drove from seattle to phoenix and back again last month to see where he was on the road. So mostly i attract people. I do have air tags. I got a four pack in grave. So i've got An air tag on my keys. I have one in the package still because it's eventually going to go on a backpack for when i work out of the apartment. If that ever happens again in my husband's stole the other two So i think find my is great like mike. I am really looking forward to the day when i can find like air pods with it because i lose those a lot And i'm just kind of excited to see where where things go where accessories go now that there's kind of more capability with it. Yeah but for now it's people and keys people and key as the story of so many of i. let's see. I use several of the things in here. Pretty frequently. Having recently moved to a large house. I lost my iphone much more because now there's space in the house where there's more rooms it could be in so being able to locate it. Granted requiring some other device or using my home pot or something is handy. I do like the idea of having like having the ability to track my other devices. it doesn't end up being deal as lean said most of the time. I'm not leaving the house very much about a handful of air tags. My wife has one on her keys..

We could have a worrisome future. Pigs could learn to fly and cowles could to. That could be a very worrisome future force but it hasn't happened yet The new variant is spreading through central america. But the delta variant has taken over so much here that you just can't break through now. I will tell you this One of the reasons we know the variant strains there dewey statistical sampling based on people go to the hospital they get the they get testing to figure out which variant they have and we can tell delta's overwhelming us not view i think delta airlines would much prefer the area to be spread around the country.

"With a usb cable. The size makes it a viable alternative. Defining used airport express on ebay. Although the airport express does have one advantage that will get to in a second in the for Let's see the features. You can stream from ios and mac devices to your existing stereo. You can play. Music and multiple rooms with other airplay enables speakers. It's very easy to pair and you can connect any speaker or receiver with an optical or three and a half millimeter audio. jack in these cables aren't included. An does come with a two year. Warranty are so set up. Set up like five minutes. You power on the device and move your iphone close to it. Then you choose the setup device the wifi settings. There's a step where you aim your camera at the code on the back of the unit. This was problematic for us because the printing was difficult for our camera to differentiate from the background so we essentially ended up entering the code manually and as far as performance goes. There's not a whole bunch of say about it. It worked like all other airplay to devices on our network. The music was clear. There were no dropouts during our testing. Then when we played with multiple airplay to devices there were no sync issues The specs on the sound form connect say that it supports cd quality sample rates and that sixteen bit forty four hurt kilohertz a resolution and the highest That's the highest that Airplay will support anyway at this point. we did play some hi rez losses content from our computer and that we can assume was transported to cd quality and it still sounded fantastic. Yeah you know what i would be interested in. Do you know if it exists. I mean this product is super cool. If if this is something that you need to add You know airplay to a device or something. Is there the opposite where i could plug an analog device into something like this and have it connect out in send to airplay. That's the device. I need but i haven't been able to find it anywhere Yeah you know what you could probably not through airplay you could probably do bluetooth. I have seen those bluetooth adapters. That will You compare with and they have a analog input. But that's about all that i've seen but that would be interesting if you could do that. I guess maybe attack or something that and then you could. Yeah i a lot of connections there. I don't know that that's going work very easily. The only way i've seen to do it is actually a run. It into a mac. He's a mac mini. And then have the mac shoot that out over airplay. Yeah but if someone else has a solution for it that would be cool. I wanna hook my record player up to Airplay and have it send broadcast out but anyway nice yeah So that is is that for today. Show no no. We have the the pay off if you need to convert glues and we didn't know yes you're right so if you need to convert a power you had like the big finish. The big finish air is the conclusion on the belkin. If you need to convert a powered speaker a sound bar or a receiver to to the belkin sound formed connect. It's absolutely a no brainer. It's small easy to set up works flawlessly. But with that said if you don't mind a slightly bigger form factor buying an airport express on ebay for about fifty bucks has the exact same functionality for fifty bucks less Just doesn't go backwards. I jumped in early. I should've waited till after the conclusion to say. I wanna go backwards on this thing. But it is like it's a no-brainer super easy to use and small right faye. It can fit anywhere. Yeah that's to me. That's a big selling point. The question is is it worth fifty dollars more than an airport express because it literally to tick tax put on top to tic tac cases. Put on top of each other and you've got a Speakers you know you've got an airplay speaker and you could buy powered speakers all over the place you can You know double sided tape it to the back of the receivers and it easy to do. You could almost do that with an airport express. It's a little bit bigger as a little bit more awkward but This might be an easier way to do. Especially if you've got some sort of usb power nearby a lot of Sockets nowadays have a usb power plug right next to the actual one hundred ten volt power so that might make it more desirable to use this. Yeah definitely And i'm gonna send my requests out to the audience. If anyone out there has found a way to put an analog device out over airplay or airplay to let me if you've done it not like if you like. Oh you know you could probably do this. Because then that's going to send me on a wild goose chase if you've successfully done this let me know how you've done it because i want to do it But thank you for listening everyone.

"That's what we did last week. If you remember it was like eighty million in the us. Sixty million via disney plus. So there's the twenty million dollars difference right so and that's why i'm saying just the numbers. Maybe they were expecting a much. Bigger revenue. I just don't see these movie. Theaters are sorry studios making that kinda money anymore. It just I think people's appetite is being fed. Elsewhere is kind of like if you have a days of the blockbuster are over. Well yeah think think about this if you were always going to get your hamburgers at in and out burger and it. It costs you. I don't know ten bucks a week to do that. In another hamburger joint opens up down the street and it's a pretty good but not great but it's cheaper in fact in this example it's Almost free you're you're paying the restaurant owner You know five dollars a month but you can eat all the hamburgers you want. It's going to cut into in and out burgers Revenue no matter. How good their hamburgers are. And that's kind of where we are with netflix amazon. And all these other services it's cutting into the movie theaters business and sit in the studio's business that is a much bigger cause of the revenue drop then pirating yes. I agree one hundred percent and the theater industry we've already talked about. It was on decline when cove it hit. Cohen killed it. Obviously but you know. The number of tickets being sold annually was decreasing. The only reason revenue sharing was increasing was because they've raising prices so it was already on. Its way down and i think cova kind of accelerated that. But you're right. It's it's one of those things where it's probably just not going to be able to come back to where it was the hardest hit the actors because some of these actors made a boatload money before they even sold one ticket they were probably paid one hundred million dollars or they made money on the back. End sorry fron. You don't make any money on the back and you know. A percentage of the ticket sales. They're just not gonna make the money that they used to and they're going to be hit just as hard as the studios and it's gonna change a lot of things are right and that's gonna be rough man instead of making like twenty million a picture you know. They're going to have to bite the bullet and make what like five million a picture. Rough will there. They would make more than that. I mean and granted it just like a list actors made a lot more than twenty million a picture. Our next news story. A new report in korea now says that samsung electronics plans to release. The i. Q d oleg. Tv's in the first half of twenty. Twenty two cutie. All ed is a hybrid display technology that aims to take the already very impressive qualities of old ed and improve it on the brightness and color through the use of quantum dots the first. Tv's will be fifty five and sixty five inches and these will be demonstrated. Cas in twenty twenty two and later in twenty twenty two. The company will also interior introduced the seventy inch q. Cutie lead. Tv's expect me is not the article. Expect to pay a premium for it but this is pretty cool technology. It is melting the best. I think of both technologies. And this is where i would rather see these manufacturers. Concentrate on this type of technology. That makes the picture. Look better brighter more vivid. I guess that's the same thing better caller detail. Better contrast than eight k. Yeah i'm with you I'm not really in the market to upgrade tv. So if if they're going to invest. I'd like them to invest in things that bring the prices down for the really big ones. And if this is the way to do it then i'm a fan Also some more good news in streaming and streaming movies made some waves back in the day. When warner media announced. They were going to release all of their movies for twenty twenty one. Seventeen total movies on. Hbo max the same day that they were going out to the theaters. That is Full quality on. Hbo max. Up to four k. Hd are and dolby atmos-. They announced that they're going to continue the hybrid model next year. Which is super exciting. Ten movies will premiere simultaneously in theaters and on. Hbo max while other movies. We'll have a reduced theatrical window of forty five days as according to comments made by warner media. Ceo jason ca lar during q two earnings call and reported by the verge the ceo added. That warner has no plans at all to return to the old ways quotas. I certainly don't anticipate is going back to the way the world was in two thousand fifteen or sixteen or seventeen. Where windows were quite lengthy between theatrical and home exhibition whether it was all a card transaction or something else said jason disney and warner have been the studios most aggressively pushing towards the new reality with same day premiers in theaters and online but other studios like paramount and universal have also experimented with early home releases. Hbo max will launch in more regions later this year and then more in twenty twenty two as well. I'm a fan man. I'm digging this new trend. Yeah where was this when my kids were little and i could have had them watch all the princess movies right in the comfort of our own house instead of having to go to the movie theaters. Yeah buy popcorn and do that. Whole thing exactly. Yeah i remember but you know what would that said. It was fun. Good memories for sure all right so we'll move over to the main content for today show. We have a three things to talk about. I is a company called would extension and that is would extension dot com and you can check them out on the internet and one of our listeners. Sent us a link to his site. It's he's a guy he works out of the san fernando valley. And i'm going to have to go check out his His his Workshop one day but he makes tv lift cabinets.

If you recall when hdtv's came out on the market we were doing similar types of stories but it was about hdtv and now they wouldn't even bother putting out something like this because one hundred percent of the tv sold our hdtv's and I think the same as you just pointed out is going to be the case In the future because the the processing required to do these you'll get system on a chip type of systems and It won't really be much to put a smart tv together whereas a few years ago it did take a little bit more yen. I think at that point what becomes more important is Usage of the smart apps on the tv are people actually using the apps to stream content. Or do they just exist there. Okay next email. Next news story is without much fanfare apple music loss. Luis and spatial audio are finally rolling out on its android app upon launching in june both apple music loss lewis and apple music Spatial audio sorry Apple article said that. Apple's answer to the still unreleased spotify hi-fi says finding they're saying that apple's answer to the still unreleased so wouldn't it be the way around wouldn't spotify the answer spotify answer to apple well however yeah i mean it should be but this is brilliant marketing by spotify just announcing that they were going to do it and making everybody respond even though everyone could respond faster than than the they could when they announced it. Yeah so let's see. What did they say. It's the bottom line this new story after that little aside there is that's The features were only available on mac. Os but now they're coming to non iphone users and says i can't enable the author of the article says i can't enable the feature on my android phone at the time of this writing but in gadget has confirmed that they gradually are being update via an update while there's obviously been a delay in bringing apple music losses and spatial audio to android their eventual. Arrival could be another. Sign that apple's loosening up about keeping it all its best features within its own ecosystem. The beats studio buds previously hinted at a change in approaching this by ditching. The h. one. And w on chips. In favor of a processor that allowed greater feature and connectivity parody across ios and android and that is a huge shift For apple not only would this but a lot of things they are opening up you my mom. We just got her a visual television we can airplay directly to it without an apple. Tv and i believe we can even run our i tunes and Our apple tv type of content on her video without even having to have an apple tv bockzo. Good for apple doing this. I think it was smart. Going to have a very small market that they can sell into. This allows them to get a lot of the services to other devices. Yeah i mean the cool thing about this. It's not really like back. In the day when they had the clones and and other people were making mac and that became a mess. These are actual apple products are just running on other people's platforms. So apple can still be in control of the quality experience and the user experience So yeah i mean it makes perfect sense for apple to be doing this because everyone else roku and and everyone else is trying to get onto. I said roku. I meant netflix. But everyone else is trying to get onto as many products as they possibly can at some point. Apple is going to have do that as well. harass surprise surprise. Black widow is coming to blu ray way. Sooner than we thought considering black widow was released just a couple of weeks ago. Nobody expected to be able to own their own. Copy of the blockbuster anytime soon but marvel studios is keeping the phantom on their collective toes with the blockbuster hitting video on demand on august tenth before arriving on dvd and blu ray on september fourteenth this call moral studios is sure to turn a few heads but might make sense. Considering the unprecedented state of the film industry marvel movies are known for making insane profit at the box. Office and black widow story went down a bit different though because it debuted its first weekend strong numbers but attendance dropped off really really fast because black widow was pirated online. Quite a bit and black widow hit disney plus present ben blackwell hitting disney plus presumably factored into the pirating subscribers did have to pay extra for the flake but it might have been easier to screen grab and capture online and made available in the pirates market But getting black widow onto vod and sold for physical release. They're saying should help. The house of mouse make a bigger profit from the project or at least accelerate win. That project that prophet would come in is interesting that the entire movie industry and when things go to streaming dvd and video on demand and all that is is completely up in the air right now and what will at some point win it. All settles what will define a successful blockbuster release is probably going to be wildly different than it. Was you know three or four years ago. Well and how would you pirate that There's all kinds of encryption that If you're apple. Tv or whatever device. You have isn't connected to hdmi hdp Certified display. how would you record that get it. Maybe can put something in the middle of the path and recorded digitally or is it possible that people are putting very high resolution cameras on a screen. That's really good and recording it that way and then just putting the audio over it. I don't know how you would Do this There's got to be like is screen capture right so you're playing video on screen capturing the screen at full frame rate and then you'd have to mucks audio back into it somehow see recording the audio and get that to sync up. But that's essentially what they're saying would be done here. I mean i don't know what quality you're you're running at at that point we'll emanate is the question is would by that and Be happy with it. I i don't understand. It just doesn't make sense to me. Because i know there are some people who just want pirated would. Are they losing money from those these people. Meaning if they're gonna pay the low price for a crappy Screen capture are these people who are actually going to go and watch it in a movie theater or pay video on demand prices to watch it. So there's really. I'm not suggesting it's okay pirate it. I'm just saying. I don't believe they're losing money from these people what's happening. I think our pirates are making money in a different area where disney never would have made the money. Yeah well no one's paying for it right. That's the point of the pirating. Is you just off downloading it for okay. You're right so well. No i've seen places where they would be selling these Blu-ray physical media of this type of thing for five dollars that. But you're right if it's on a pirate bay or something like that correct. Nobody's paying for it but regardless of what. I agree with you on that one though because those people wouldn't be going out to the theater instead you know it's not like i was going to go to the theater but i'll stay home and watch this crappy resolution on my laptop and the that's all that's why i don't blame the pirates for the the Lack of revenue of the movie. I think that's just an excuse There's probably some revenue loss. We can't say that there's zero revenue loss but there's some i don't think it's as big as what they're saying the reason why. It probably didn't do that. Well is one. Maybe the movie itself wasn't that good and to that. Maybe some people are just finding other things to watch because there's a lot of great content out there. That's not necessarily coming the major studios and i think that's a bigger issue here then pirating. Yeah and you know they would have to release the total i. What was the box office. Like plus how. Many people did this premium upgrade and disney plus paid the extra thirty bucks to watch the movie. What was the full take on that weekend. Not just what was the box office so we got that on the all turned out..

"That's sixteen bit forty four one kilohertz resolution. So i feel like me. You may be going okay. That's not quite the you know the the hi fi i was looking for but see equality is still quite good and will essentially give you the same quality that you would have if you took a cd. Put it into your system and played it from that cd. This is a really nifty device though because once you understand the the power of airplay to suddenly things become kind of clearer because airplay to let's you connect to multiple audio devices at the same time and streaming music sinked across all of those audio devices. So imagine that you know you're at home and it's just you alone you're not getting on any of your fellow housemates nerves by doing so and you're maybe you're cleaning the house and so you have Downstairs in your living room and apple tv and upstairs you have a Let's go with a case a sound bar from bos- Which supports airplay to. And that's in one of your rooms and then in your office. You've got some bookshelf speakers. That are just stop physical input typically where you would plug in an ox cord or you would run the the multiple audio ports to it to get it to play. You've connected this to that That pair of bookshelf speakers are multiple bookshelf speakers. Now you can be listening to say an audio book or music. Or what have you and with. Ios you can select all three of those speaker. Outputs the apple tv. The bose sound bar that supports airplay to and this belkin sound form connect adapter all three of them can be selected as outputs and what the airplay does is it sinks them all up. So now is you're moving throughout the house. You're able to listen to your audiobook in every single room or listen to the music in every single room as you go about cleaning so this is just a fantastic way to add that airplay to compatibility to devices that don't have it otherwise so for ninety nine.

"Quality. Sound a thirty six hours of battery life in this case. Eight hours of playtime per charge and super cool actually didn't know this when i first got them because it's got a usb port on the back. I thought that that's the way that it charged but turns out. This is also chee wireless charging support. So i can drop this on h. e. wireless pad and it Picks up the charge and gets going so. Uscc in the back again she wireless charging and this comes with three different ear tips. So you've got small medium and large box you can find just the right size that works for you again. Touch controls volume up and volume down Play pause triggering your voice assistant etc and like the sound for move. You're also getting ipx five so. They're sweat and splash resistant. Now you may be wondering about noise cancellation Belkin calls their noise cancellation environmental noise cancellation and it is specific to the calls. So when you make a call it uses this clear call technology and its environmental noise cancellation to make for a better call. Using both of the microphones that are built into each of these. It'll make sure that Noise in the background doesn't get in the way of the call that you're you're taking these have little. Led's on the bottom of the stem that you can see and then an led on the front that also helps you see the current state whether you're trying to pair them or if they're charging or if something else is going on in between The last thing that i want to mention about this i think is pretty nifty feature. Is these support. Apple's find my network so these are one of the first accessories. That i've had that i've ever used that support. Apple's find my network. What does that mean. Well with this You can add this to your apple. Find my network and should they go missing. You can use the proximity that you are to device to help you track them down. So if you are notorious for losing ear buds These are great to let you get that set and be able to trigger. Hey i need to know where these are and it will put out. There's a little hole on the bottom of the case so that it can play out that sound so you can hear these beeping and you can go running and find them wedged between the couch or in a pocket of jacket that you forgot they had been put into so i really like it because Apples fi network is a really private secure method for tracking your objects and this just adds to that giving you the ability to Find these pretty easily and frankly the fine. My ability of these belkin sound formed freedom. Trials ear buds. It's better than what you get with the air pods pro so it becomes much easier to track these down. Should you need to find them again. Come at one hundred twenty dollars. They have black version and white version available to purchase A really nice little case here with a shiny top So it's.

"I just never thought of that. I have old knives for my grandfather With old del ron. That's kind of shriveled up stuff like that but it never occurred to me that regionally it matters you know i i live. I've i've always lived in the northeast or the the east you know or in ohio and a lot of the Slip joint knives. I have are made in pennsylvania so it's kind of all the same climate and it's never ever been an issue but i never thought of that made one place it's it's it's made to exist and made to perfection in that place and then sent elsewhere and you just don't know how it's gonna react now we're talking about thousands of an inch precision right so you put something in a human environment into a dry environment where mine is will be fulfilled out of arizona. So that means you're going to be sitting in a place in arizona and humanity. What problem. I'm dealing with a whole batch. That screws up exactly knife maker can exactly fix those by hand myself so from a practical sam point in oklahoma. It's business decision in the beginning to stick with impervious materials in. It is consistent with the design concept of the knives to stick with mike carta and other manmade materials but just a very very smart an informed decision that that comes from obviously having a great business mind but also having a great collection of knives from customers from all over the place that you've had these experiences in the past you kind of new to look for a because my my instinct as a as a slip joint collector much smaller collection than yours. But love is you know. Oh my gosh you know. Give me this. Give me tortoiseshell bone. Give me would and see what happens. You know because those materials. I love for traditional knives. But yeah so you know you can dig. You can put digging in my carta. Why not you can put carbon-fiber definitely it's funny. You say that. Because that's a conversation i'm going to have with factory is can you guys do this. And so jacob peace and send it to me. Sorry that's awesome. Can't imagine they'd say no. They pretty much do anything. It seems like they can thicken j. titanium. I've seen it so the jig. My kara yeah penny has a couple of jig. Titanium's i think is lanny's clip Speaking of lanny's clip Was was there. Were there any special. I feel like. I've heard a lot of people mentioned that designing a lanny's is not as easy as it might seem. Did you have any special challenges. Were that design in particular. Yeah it's it's not easy. That belaid with its samer grind. And it's you know it's taller blade. Gotta get the nail nick right. Yeah it's it's a beast because if you can make a lovely real easy is what i'll say and then it's just bigger so the handle has to be bigger and you know just folding that big lead into that handle so that you have. All grinds still outside the handle that aesthetic effect. That atlanta's has it was. It was a pain in the butt and actually recently just made some modifications to mind because the screw like notice on allow these is screw. Never smack dab in the middle of bolster. And you don't really see it on traditional vice as much because there's a pen in it's hidden ulster but it was just bugging me that it was as off center as it was so i fix that a weekend. But you can't just move that screw and call lay you. Just change the relationship of the blade to the handle where pivots and that is a chain that cascades through every single nice so yeah the like i actually tweeted on the eureka which are called the humpback jack and danny's click which is my version of lanny's so the the vampire jack up at the top has that Has a sort of coke bottle. Not what do they call that. Little yet will the the like the jenner swells. Yes the centers. So my understanding is that's to accommodate the pin and the material that has to exist on that spring around the pin. And that allows you to a larger blade a broader blade handle exactly. I mean that blade is almost the whole width of the handle. And you know truthfully there is a lot of. I like that design for the aesthetics. Urea adjust like on that night at hump. Is there to move the pen and open up a blade. Well so what. How are you going to market these. What role are are knife. Shows gonna have what what role is social media. How are you going to get the word out. So i've been working on that every day. So nice shows. I'll go to the ones that are applicable Played by the way everybody. You wanna see me at blade at table. Sixteen see so you can see there. I'll have i should have my prototypes by then as a leap of faith by table. Before i got the prototype.

"Senior many times on thursday nights. But it's great to have you here on the show. Boban pleasure to see you. As i mentioned in the introduction. You first introduce yourself me into into this shows community as a collector of just amazing slip joint knives Shown us a lot of what you have in your collection. How did you start off in this in this thing with the join night. Yeah we're collecting the way you collect so the way i collect is part of my addictive personality that i was born with i suppose but slipped joined is so back i think around. Maybe two thousand thirteen or fourteen. I started collecting knives again. I originally started collecting. Is a kid like some people on your show. And i was buying spider coz and trying to find is that a left handed person can use which leads you to back locks and after trying all the spectacle back locks. I was looking for something. Different stumbled across videos on youtube greece. Cutlery i said i gotta find one of those and called up. Exit called up knives ship free because i saw a sold. I said where people getting these like. How do you hustle to get the good ones and dude on the phone. I don't even know what. Talk to. But i said give me the slip joint guy you know when i call. And he told me about a facebook group called joint paradigm. That was where like hardcore slip joint dues were. I'm back in two thousand fourteen. Two thousand fifteen and once. I saw like the rug at that world. I was hooked. So why why was great eastern cutlery. One that i raise your interest so yeah i guess i got my hands on a case knife. Actually that's what really sort of piqued. My interest in traditional night by mother-in-law gave me a taste peanut that was hers from when she was a kid. Her father gave it to her and it was sharpened the death than joints were like rusted. You could barely open it. But i looked at it was like this is so different from anything i've ever seen. And so i started looking up. These types of knives. And i saw great eastern cutlery and i could tell right away from the pictures that that was special actually bought one case knife on amazon i because he couldn't get the great eastern's easy. It was a like a seahorse. Hitler and like opened up the box. The shield fell out. You know just disappointing. And so i said. I gotta get my hands on one of these calories. And that's when. I saw what good traditional cut rees made of so two you matter or does it matter to you. That great eastern cutlery makes these traditional style knives. These slip joint knives in the traditional way with the traditional machines in with that using an old processes that part of the part of the connection. It's certainly part of the charm. I don't think it has to be that way. But it's part of the story is part of the heritage and their product. It comes out in their private. You know like when you handle their product verse even a modern traditional light. It's not gonna be the same. And that's because they're using hundred plus year old machines. They're using labor methods. That are as old as those genes. Right so i think that's part of the charm. I don't think every slip joint has to be that way. But i think for great eastern cutlery type nice that's what helps make a special Do you think that anyone right now is Is doing what. Ge's doing but in using the modern techniques modern modern materials custom makers do it some but obviously that was the whole i saw in the market. Was that there really. Isn't a production knife available with all the features than it should have the patterns. The blade shaved that hearken to the aspects of traditional nyse that everybody likes in modern materials. It hasn't been done to the way. I wanna do it now. The closest thing is what might does that mind seal. I mean he's very consistent with that but there's some things he does that are going to be different from the way i do. You mean mike latham at yup. Yes as a matter of fact was just carrying one of his prototypes today. But yeah he's kinda doing some of some of the things you're talking about with updating processes materials but giving but giving you that that traditional that traditional knife alga. Okay all right tell me about jack will tell me about the inspiration the name tell me all about it. Sure so my grandfather. Jack will belkin. That's where i got the name. And the first night i ever had was his and i would go to his house. You know as long as i can remember backwards. And he always carried. Swiss army knife is now swiss. Army knife is a slip joint knife. You know guys grandparents care or grandfather carried the traditional case knives or sh- rating but my grandfather use a builder. He loved the little tools in the swiss army knife. So i used to like swoop those from him when i was little and dropping in my pocket ticket hall in my parents. Would you know steal it back. Give it back to him and was just enamored with his pocket knives. That seed was planted in it. Never ever died. You know that plant never died so to speak. You know as soon as you know. I would start to get swiss army knives in is for my birthday for my parents or for my grandparents my aunts and uncles and soon. You've got a drawer full of them. Then when i got old enough to buy bigger blades ahead like a showcase on my bedroom wall like my rambo three nights in it as dislike him in mortal combat thing that you know like a fantasy nine and it just grew ahead ninja stars from the flea market in there so the love for knives that primal love that we all understand that who watch this channel right like that fire was lit by my grandfather so the name of the company is to honor him. He was a big part of my life. When i was a kid and i always looked up to him so it was really cool to name it after him and just the the concept of the company is to do a extremely high quality traditional knife in modern materials. That's what i wanna do. And my little slogan on my website is modern interpretation of timeless design. So yeah one thing. I i see a lot of the modern slip joins do. Is they come out with these. Like unique patterns that look very modern very stacey and to me while for some people. They may like that to me. It misses the mark. You know like why reinvent gun stock. Why reinvent the eureka. Why reinvent the trapper. Why reinvent the barlow. like why. Reinvent the southbound these patterns that if worked for centuries and no matter.

"Apple has officially opened up at least in that beta. I say officially in air quotes the items tab in the find my app and you may remember. We've talked about this. In the past. There was kind of a secret way to access it. It is the tab that many folks believe is going to be enabled when apple releases their airtags product to allow you to track them. Non apple devices. Basically they're their bluetooth tracking tags like the tile tags. What apple is doing now. in iowa's fourteen point five beta though is opening it up so you can register an ad non apple devices to the fine my app. There's also of course speculation that this also means apple's getting very close to announcing their airtags but for now it looks like they're enabling the feature for third party products.

Interview With Prof. James McGaugh

"By guests. Today's professor james mcgill. Who is imminent is professor of neural. Biology and behavior accused of california. Irvine he is so so fellow at the centre for the biology of learning and memory. Belkin jim hello there. I want to start with all the papers. Entitled making lasting memories remembering the significant invite you say although forgetting the common fate of most of experiences much evidence indicates that emotional arousal and kansas. The story of memories. The served to create selectively lost memories of other more important experiences. You said that. Europe biological systems mediating emotional arousal at memory are very closely linked before we get into a gym I wondered if you sort of a- define memory a little bit and You know cambodia. Understanding of memory changed overtime. Booby beckon understanding of what we mean by emory. Now all right memory is something that we infer from individualism from animals. All we ever see is behavior and on the basis of behavior we make inferences that that ah prior experience produce some kind of change in the in this case the brain of the animal or the human such that they can behave differently and we make inferences that are memory processes underlying the change in behavior. Now the the function of memory is to allow us to behave. If we didn't have memory we would be just like vegetables We're able to have an experience. Remember that experience and change or are repeat our behavior on the basis of that experience in order to survive so memory is a fundamental set of abilities that aid in our survival. Right right he also. That's disagree to think about it. So clearly for animals For memory to their behavior but in the case of cubans Couldn't be actually say Y be mean by memory of a of a potentially a a large set of data that you get used to define memory right. Oh a larger set setup data the inferences the same. If i watch you play for example i can make inferences about your ability to change your behavior on the basis of experience. And that's all i have and the case of of yourself. I presume that you learn to speak language. Now if i observed you when you're a child i could see the process of your acquiring the language rep all of the things that we do are based on experiences that then causes to change our behavior in response to the experience and and scientists what we try to do is to figure out what happens in the brand that enables that change in behavior or the repeat of behavior which is based on the experience. And it's same end for intro process that we use when talking about human behavior as when we're talking about animal behavior so so both tactically james so suppose i say You know i saw x. right Says i'm talking short term memory eight. I saw last wednesday on steeped. Why you know. I'm sort of not relating Something from from the past That i guess. I dead point. Would you say i m make an inference or i am actually Member memorizing. you're you're using information i would. I have to make the inference at. That's based on memory and of course it is because there isn't any other way to explain your ability to do that but you're just using the information that you acquired a previous time in order to affect your behavior at this time and that's that's what memory does it allows us to use experiences in order to to change our behavior to make it appropriate for the moment

Dayton's Road to Pandemic Recovery

"We've been taking a look around the country at how different cities or dealing with the fallout from the pandemic. Today we head to Dayton Ohio unlike other places Dayton hasn't been a hot spot for the coronavirus and the death toll has been low but the pandemic is just the latest in a series of struggles. The city has faced in the past year our reporter Doug Belkin visited the city recently and joins me now Doug Dayton Ohio has been through a lot in recent years even before the pandemic from natural disasters to rising numbers of deaths the OPIOID crisis. Can you tell us a little? Bit more about the position Dayton was in before the pandemic it. It's a fascinating town. It really punched above. Its weight for a long time. Many years ago it was a home of a lot of innovation. The Wright brothers came from there there are a lot of major manufacturing companies and engineering companies that really employed thousands of people and built a Beautiful City in the early twentieth century. The housing stock is really lovely. But it fell on hard times. A lot of those companies moved south to chase cheaper labor and the revenue into the city declined significantly and then they had really hard shock. The financial crisis in two thousand and seven and eight pulled a lot of jobs out that didn't return and then the opiate crisis that was really ground zero. It's a lot of highways going in and out of Dayton and it made it a kind of a pitstop for these drugs and they were just hundreds and over the years. Thousands of people who overdosed from opioids. So they were very hard and then last summer they had a string of horrible tragedies. They had a tornado that wiped out part of the town and killed people they had A mass shooting in downtown shopping district that killed nine people and injured another twenty people and they had a Klu Klux Klan rally Which really hard for the people there so last year was very difficult moment for them and all of that brings us up now to the pandemic and Ohio responded to the coronavirus pandemic with one of the nation's strictest lockdowns how has the corona virus now impacted Dayton and our elected officials grappling with it so the virus itself has not taken deep root there the shutdown or have been very effective or at least the pandemic did not make huge inroads. There's been about fifteen people who've died in Dayton of a city of one hundred forty thousand six hundred confirmed cases so the sickness has been. You know it's the specter has there but the fear was a major problem in the shutdown and the economic implications of the shutdown have been dramatic. And what we wrote about in the story was a lot of of what that's done to the economy to the people in the town to the churches in the town and even to the revenue of the city. And how they're gonNA deal with it and how they're sort of handcuffed because they will have less revenue to keep their social safety net strong so we spoke to the mayor of the City Nan. Whaley WHO's trying to lead the community through this and this is what she had to say. And when since we all become mayors because you can see directly the impact you make you get to make decisions and you have this control but the more you do it the more you realize the less control you really have. So what she's talking about here is the fact that these these tragedies that happened last summer in the pandemic it's going on now are all national and international issues. The handgun issue is a national problem. The racism issue that the KKK was part of is obviously a national issue tornadoes. That came through As part of the change in climate and this pandemic as part of a global problem and one thing that they all have in common that the mayor belief is that the federal response has not been robust enough to help cities and towns and they are ending up dealing with these problems by themselves with much smaller resources than the federal government. Has IT Doug? You also spoke to members of the Dayton community. What did you hear from them about how they're coping right now? So a lot of folks were really knocked back on their heels by the shutdown A lot of business owners you know. Obviously they shut down their businesses and they were concerned that they wouldn't be able to restart them and a lot of folks were laid off from their jobs. I spoke to one woman named bridget. Hadn't who has had to dig into her children's college savings account to get by these last few months. And here's bridget. I think this is going to Their their futures. They're gonNA come out of this with a lot of debt Things that they shouldn't have to endure at their ages. I planned for this. I planned in plan for this so that they wouldn't have to do this and now I'm giving into their college funds just to be able to survive day to day and we know that the people around the country are digging into their children's college savings account to get through these periods of unemployment. This is a national issue. And it's it's playing out in Dayton along with everyone else and a big question that all of us are grappling with now is what happens next when the pandemic is over and and what does our new normal look like. Here's mayor naturally again in what she had to say about that. I do think during the tragedies of Dayton last year I did feel the region really come together to support the city. The city center which was very special. I worry that that could go away. Because of the WACO vid puts people in their corner really fast both politically and like literally in the corner. You know in their home. Dave chapelle lives in that area. The wonderful comedian and he gave a show after the the mass shooting to help bring the community together and to heal the community and one thing that the mayor said was that that's not possible now. People can't gather here show so she asked. How do you heal a community? That's gone

Fast Five: David Horton, President of Schweizer RSG

"The s three hundred helicopter traces. Its lineage back to the Hughes to sixty nine it received its FAA certification in nineteen fifty nine the US army bought some eight hundred of them for pilot. Training called it the osage over the years. Here's the little helicopter was owned and built by several manufacturers and in two thousand eighteen was purchased by a new Fort Worth Texas entity called Schweitzer RS jeep and. Today we're speaking with its president and managing partner. David Horton so I just wanted to talk about what's going on with the new Schweitzer and what's going on on with the three hundred thing that occurred to me. David is as we discussed. The three hundred is hardly a new design. You obviously think it's still very during competitive and I'm curious what about it after fifty years makes it competitive in two thousand twenty a couple of things. I is the opera ability. It's useful load operated do helicopters from fish potting range wildlife management the cattle mustering who law enforcement. Uh they actually use them for harvesting Christmas trees and training and one of the most robust trainers ever produced the other thing is the safety of a helicopter. I I got a substantial. Thank you reckon with best in class for the class that we operate in and I think those two things make it a very viable so helicopter. I know durable there. Lots still in operation or third in production stopped ten years ago helicopter. Belkin eighteen you know like the fifteen sixteen thousand sixteen timeframe and so it wasn't quite that long ago but there's only a handful bill but yes they have been around for a long Okon like most helicopters you replace. Parkas needed is not a complete overhaul interval. One time in operation. You can still get hard pale mainly because the retirement of the model though. The army is hard-pressed. Hell but we think somewhere around seventeen under this what we estimate. I assume helping support those as a part of your business plan part of the attraction of taking control right. It's pretty straightforward the first. The thing was is to support the existing operators so that they could depend on us to keep their fleets operational. That was first and foremost the second thing was to in the The new production going get the new production line and all the things related to that production certificate supply chain vertical integration. Take all of those things set up in order to be able to produce new helicopters. Then the third thing is to upgrade the helicopters. Currently have you know whether it's a different power plants or Avionics suite or just the vehicle management system bringing into the twenty first century on the things that the pilots in this day and age would look forward or to Saying that you know the modern helicopter when will we see taxes made S. three hundreds. We have started. Actually this week put together together. Are I e model and the ideas. We're going to probably put together four over the next several months. And the reason it's GonNa go slow as the EPA has validate eight hours. Kimberly instructions planning so to speak to produce the helicopters the FAA has worked with us very well so far and they're very excited about helping us get the next level of production support by you know helping US produce the entire helicopter I think after the first three or four or five helicopters we should be able to have have a what they call it. A limited production certificate. How many do you think you'll produce in here? We're going to win for the families flow. They maybe next year and maybe three times that much the year after probably fifty to seventy five a year would be a good average. They're actually the two models of the three hundred right it's three hundred c and the CBI correct and how do they differ. Hey Model Venkat you. Copy model of our helicopter has a higher horsepower. Engine Mexico's way to twenty fifty. And it's the helicopter that a lot of the military trainers to use around the world and so the CBI is lower macro swayed helicopter. Seventeen hundred fifty pounds and it runs the engine that is a a bit lower horsepower. Trade off though is primarily used for training helicopter although people use them for other things around the world but jacked up wedding costs. You'll possibly twenty five to thirty dollars. Our last thing speaking of dollars. What's the price of a three hundred and see beyond we think the three hundred thirteen they can be ours can be in the mid four hundred fifty thousand dollar price way somewhere in there the TV? I would vote four four or five four ten. Is it a three place. Helicopter both to be seeing is definitely a frequent helicopter when we configure it at the left hand drive it can be a left hand drive or right-hand-drive if it's bigger as a left hand drive there'd be a free fights helicopter. CPI for developed is to place helicopter Walker because the primary Pollen Command would be sitting in the right. So what's the market reception so far. You've got some motors. They we're actually able to contract for twenty seven helicopters love them. CBS and then that time we have received notes of interest. I I guess for people like listening to you are counts proxy another forty Salat orders. Considering you haven't even begun yet happens AH happens bill probably two three times a week. We get Paul's about wing to get into a helicopter. And so while we want to go faster than slower on the Production Avenue helicopters. We have to take a pay where we feel comfortable about what we're building and our partners. The best player comfortable about what we're building. You actually acquired three models from rights three models from Lackey Sikorsky. There's the three thirty three as well. Is that likely to go back into production. That's turbine helicopter right. Yes it is. Our Turbine powered helicopter. Three thirty three. We think you've got leg but we've got to do is we gotta find a customer and and have a pretty decent order a pretty good back before we start producing the three three three. We do have a demonstrator here and we will be actively working They'll That helicopter over the next several months years in order to build the backlog we think the helicopter does have some legs. We think it's gotTa play. The world especially for military trainer depend on what the market perception is. If we can get out there and sell it and we can provide something that we think is the value for things and then we will put the thirty three and when do you think you might be getting your production certificate for your operation in the field. Well we're planning on the first quarter of twenty twenty but I think you know everything has gotta go perfect in order to meet that date again. We're not trying to put too much pressure on ourselves because we really would rather do it correctly and makes it a bit you know as we start the production that there's no more kinks or any kind of issues with regards the production of the helicopters. I plan is the first quarter of twenty twenty and were dropped little hard to get that done if it bleeds into the first by the second quarter. Uh He'll be okay with that. There are two production certificates. We're talking about right isn't one from parts and the whole aircraft and all the thank certificate what they do is they limit to production tickets to what they call articles only for left currently what we have articles only production certificate once we start predicting the helicopters as the confident that we can build the helicopter sneak. Article only restriction will be removed the actual unfamiliar with this on articles. Only can you produce parts and sell them exactly what we can do. We can produce every part the helicopters for the second part of that is putting all these parts together to make flying sharing that the second part of the production certificate but yet we have the authority to build every art our helicopter. So are you in business now. Making parts and selling them for businesses to seventeen helicopters tale hard every day to manage our supply chain cups. I feel you're in a helicopter hub aren't you. You've got aerospaciale there and bell's not far away. You got some veterans around you. You know. That really helped him point of you. Know we've been able to attract

Data on SAT-Takers Is Up For Sale - By the College Board

"Juniors are busy Z. prepping for the sat's and seniors are hoping their sat scores are good enough to get them into the college of their choice but they aren't the only ones using that data the college board the charges students to take the sat but they're also making money off of their personal information colleges and universities pay to get data about the sat test takers and according to a Wall Street Journal Report. That's inflating applicant pools at colleges and universities and having a huge impact on the admissions process. Joining me now. With more details details his Wall Street Journal reporter Doug Belkin Dog. You found that the College Board which owns the sat college admissions test is helping to inflate applicant pools at colleges and universities across the country essentially by selling students information. Before we get to why it's doing that. How exactly does this work? So when students take the PSAT or the sat or an A.. P. Exam they fill out a survey they don't have to fill it out but about eighty percent of them do. They're asked whether they want to or not in. The survey has a series of questions about what they want to study in college. They could self report their grades their ethnicity their gender things like that and that information is very useful to the colleges and universities who are trying to market themselves to students to fund more students to apply so the College Board takes that information and essentially packages it in for forty seven cents will sell it to a school that asks for information that fits the description of the student that filled out that survey. Talk Talk a little bit more about why it's valuable for colleges and universities to have high rejection rates the level of prestige of a school is tied very closely to its. It's selectivity you know. The hottest nightclub in town is often the one that that turns away the most people. Some of that psychology exists with schools if if a school only accepts five percent the people who apply then the people who apply and get in must be very good people so people want to join them so it tends to draw more applications and it's it's really a good marketing tool for school so they were keen on watching those numbers. Their selection rate get lower and lower so that they can show to folks that they're more selective and and therefore more prestigious and has all of this benefit. The College Board So College Board is in the business of testing students and what they do with that information. Asian sort of cuts both ways on the one hand. They can help kids who may not otherwise go to school. Find a school that would that interested in them. That's a good fit and that sort of on the plus side on the other side by selling all this information. The schools ended up marketing themselves very broadly generating more applications in one of the consequences. So that is that more kids get rejected. A lot of these kids get Information from the schools. They think they're being recruited and then they get rejected so some of them feel I used by the whole process. Right as you explain in your story this leave students in a pretty tough spot and this also comes as they're growing movements to deemphasize standardized is testing but the sat is still a requirement for most colleges and universities right now there's four thousand accredited for your schools in the country in about a thousand of them have gone test optional. Which means that you don't have to take the sat or the Act as part of your application? You don't submit that so the majority of them do expect a score from from one of those two tests in the sat's the larger of the two. Doug you also reading your piece for the Wall Street Journal that the way this works can can have the practical effect of incentivizing cheaters. Of course we've also been reporting on the wide ranging college admissions cheating scandal. Can you talk a little bit about that. Why this leaves people in a position where they might want to try to cheat the system so because schools are getting larger pools of applications the odds of getting into a lot of schools are getting slimmer the sat and the Act are used by schools to weed out applicants so you need to really hit a pretty solid monarch within the wheelhouse of the school year applying to in order to be considered? If you don't hit that then you're not going to be considered that mark is getting higher and higher for schools. That are becoming more selective. So you know it's not enough maybe to get a twelve hundred if you WANNA get into University of Tocado he needs to get a fifteen fifty or something like that and so this you know incentivizes people to study to take the test multiple times and in some cases to cheat and I'm sure there has been in backlash to this system. What are you hearing from? Student advocate groups. What are the possible solutions? Here are potential solutions. There's a lot of Asda around testing right now. I think the biggest reason is because it correlates so closely was with wealth and that the the student body on college campuses is really shifting acting going from sort of middle and upper class. White folks. Too much more ethnically and racially and socio economically diverse group of people but the act CT In particular reflects the scores essentially wealthy white kids tend to do better so it's being considered a a gatekeeper. That's not fair by different. Civil rights organizations and different colleges in in this is pushing the act the college board to try to figure out ways to make the test of more well rounded one of the things they do is come up with something called Adversity score which essentially tries to wait the score. That kids get to take into account their socioeconomic economic background so that can be taken into account by the college admissions office. That's Wall Street Journal reporter Doug Belkin joining us from Chicago. Thank you so much doug thanks very much

You're listening to talking tech happy Memorial Day. I recently prepared for this little holiday by taking a look at ten travel gadgets, that I think would make your trip. Euro tip a little more cool. I want to begin with what I thought was the most impressive new product category, I hadn't seen before which is a jump starter for the car in external battery. The comes with jumper cables sells for eighty dollars. It's from the folks at anchor, and this little battery fits in your glovebox. So if you're out on the open road, and you have a problem you could wait for AAA or. Or you could pull this thing out put in the jumper cables, not have to get into somebody else's car and not have to wait for anybody to arrive, and your problems ourselves. So that was pretty cool. Another thing that, I really liked that, I think moms and dads will, like it's called the Belkin road rockstar. It has two USB charging ports for mom and dad or whoever's in the front seat. And then it has another two USB slots for the kids in the back it connects to a cable and there's room for everybody. So I thought that's pretty cool sells for thirty dollars don't leave home without it the other things you're going to need. Of course. You've heard me talk about Alexa or Google for the car with these fifty dollar little doodads that also fit into your cigarette lighter, I like the rove Viva from the folks at anchor putting that device tap into your internet from your phone, and you now can talk to Alexa, voice activated music podcasts. Like. Talking tech playlists, what's the weather how where's the nearest gas station where can I find the AAA etcetera etcetera? Don't leave home without it. You read my article in USA today for the ten of them. I'm not going to bore you with going through all ten, but I will say you all need extra juice. Nobody can go on vacation now in because we're using our phones all day long. It's not like win ruined the officer at school or whatever you need the portable brick, there's a lot of them. This one from jackassery was particularly impressive. It sells for thirty dollars, and it has a built in lightning and USB cable. So the lightning to charge, the phone, the USB to charge, the break-up don't leave home without it thirty dollars. Those are some might tips for Memorial Day one.

The SAT will assign a new score that factors in where you live and the crime level in your neighborhood

"Journal, the SAT now wants to give students in adversity score to capture their social and economic background. So my take on the admission standards at universities has long been pretty simple. If somebody has thirteen hundred on the and another person has twelve ninety on the SAT, but the person with the thirteen hundred had a wonderful easy life, and the person with the twelve ninety had a horrible terrible life. You're perfectly justified in suggesting that the person with the twelve ninety ninety s equal the person that the twelve ninety may be better off going to a better university in the person with the thirteen. Hundred because you do have to take other factors into account. However, that is not what the SAT is doing here. Instead, they are using group data to substitute for individual knowledge about applicants, according to Douglas, Belkin, and the college board plans to assign and adversity score to every student who takes the SAT's that can be based on individual data. No, it absolutely will not try and capture their social and economic background jumping into the debate raging race and class in college admissions this number called an adversity score by college admissions. Officers is calculated using fifteen factors, including the crime rate and poverty levels, from the students high school neighborhood students won't be told the scores colleges. We'll see the numbers when reviewing their applications is basically just a proxy for race. So instead of looking at the race of applicants, they will instead look at the crime rate and poverty levels from the neighborhood and they will use those as a proxy for quote unquote reaching diversity questions. That is what they were looking to do. And the reason the SAT is doing this is because there are group disparities in terms of scoring on the T. The overall average on the SAT is about ten sixty eight. If you take all the applicants who aggregate, their scores divide by the number of applicants. It's ten sixty eight Asian Americans score. Highest they average twelve twenty three white students score. Second highest at eleven twenty three Hispanics ninety and black students at nine forty six. Now this might suggest that it is not race itself. That is determinant factor of your SAT score. Instead, it is factors other than race because obviously, when people talk about white privilege. There's no reason should extend to Asians or scoring over one hundred points higher than white students are nonetheless. The college board is trying to create effectively, a proxy for race, because we have heard that we need to have brochures that have lots of people have different colors on the cover can't be too many Asians on that cover as Harvard University figured out, fifty colleges used the score last year as part of a beta test, the college board now plans to expand it to one hundred and fifty institutions, this fall and then use it broadly the following year. How colleges consider students race and class in making admissions decisions, hotly contested, according to the Wall Street Journal many colleges, including Harvard, say diverse student body is part of the educational mission of school, which is nonsense, because the kind of diversity, they're talking about is not -versity of experience is not diversity of viewpoints. It is diversity of race and race alone. That's how. That's why you see colleges putting out diversity statistics that mentioned only race a lawsuit accusing Harvey discriminating against Asian American applicants by holding them to a higher. Standard is waiting judge's ruling. They're similar lawsuits filed against the university of North Carolina Chapel Hill and the UC system, the university of California system far greater likelihood of success at UNC, or you of C because both of those are state schools, whereas Harvard is private the college board said it his worried about income inequality, influencing test results for years, white students Gordon average one hundred seventy seven points higher than black students in one hundred and thirty three points higher than Hispanic students in two thousand eighteen Asian students, one hundred points higher than white students. The children of wealthy and college educated parents outperform their classmates. Now this is usually seen as an indicator that wealth is highly correlated with SAT performance. But you know what else is correlated with wealth provides a confident, parents who are married, parents, who have jobs, and those disposable, incomes. They're all these factors that are in place, looking at the wealth level. And then suggesting that wealth. Loan is all that matters is simply not true. David Coleman is chief executive of the college, he's an amazing number of students who may have scored less on the SAT accomplish more. We can't sit on our hands and ignore the disparities of wealth reflected in the SAT again. How about the disparities upbringing? How about the fact that sometimes the disparity in wealth is reflective of other disparities, including things like family life or including things like study habits. The SAT includes math and verbal sections, it's facing challenges, federal prosecutors revealed the spring that's treated on the SAT antedates for years as part of a college emissions cheating scheme. In Asia, and the Middle East. Both the ACT and SAT, experienced security breaches, Yale University has tried using applicants adversity scores. You'll has pushed to increase socioeconomic diversity and over several years has nearly doubled the number of low income and first generation to attend college students, so about twenty percents of newly admitted students, according to the dean of, undergraduate admissions at Yale, Jeremiah Quinlan said, versity score, he said is literally affecting every application, we look at it has been a part of the success story to help diversify our freshman class. Now the way that they are measuring diversity does not really seem to be anything beyond diversity of race. They talk about the number of low income and first generation to attend. College students students how many of those kids are Asian versus black or Latino because if all of them are Asian, I promise you was still gonna hit with get hit with charges. They're not diverse enough. The SAT score distributions show that there is a correlation between SAT score an income but is extraordinarily. There's an extraordinary level of gradation. So if you if your family household income averages more than two hundred thousand dollars the average SAT scores about twelve thirty between one hundred forty thousand two hundred thousand dollars. An eleven seventy two one hundred one hundred forty thousand dollars eleven forty so very close divide between below one hundred forty thousand dollars and above one hundred forty thousand dollars eighty thousand to one hundred thousand dollars in twenty sixty thousand to eighty thousand is ten ninety four thousand sixty thousand ten sixty twenty thousand forty thousand ten twenty less than twenty thousand dollars nine seventy so what exactly is the? So if you're going to look at the at the sort of correlation between SAT score in any particular factor race seems to be less race. Seems to be. A less significant factor than, for example, parents, education, level children, parents get a graduate degree averaging eleven ninety seven children of parents who average bachelor's degree having eleven twenty nine associate's degree ten thirty nine high school diploma Teno five notable nine forty four. In other words, the meritocracy is, basically working, as you would expect it to war, when you remove the question of race from the equation, what you see, is that earnings and education level of parents. Also correlate highly with how students score on the so the implication seems to be the because America is racist. That's why they're group differentials in terms of how particular racial groups score on the T. But the fact is that if you measured by factors, not, including race, the differentials that you would expect occur in sort of a normal distribution education level of parents. In other words is closely correlated with how do income of parents is closely correlated with how kids do. Nonetheless to look at race as the single dividing line is mistake, James Conrad's rector of college counseling, neutral high school, which serves several affluent and mostly white communities, so that the focus on diversity by league colleges is already high. The adversity score would magnify that the college, try to do this back in the nineties, and then voters in California in Washington voted to ban. Affirmative action preference in public school education. The adversity score doesn't take into account rates. They say it's superior because it is steeped in more research. But the fact is that by not taking into account rates. They're basically just finding proxies for rates. And I'm not the one thing that one of the people who is saying that is a person who used to run university program for the college board. The college board is not even revealing how late the adversity score weigh the factors that go into it again. They're using group data rather than individual data the day that informs the score comes from public records such as the US Census as well. Some sources proprietary to the college board according to the head of this program over at the college. Board and adversity score of fifty fifties average anything about it designates hardship below it is privilege. The college board began developing the tool in two thousand fifteen because colleges were asking for more objective data on student's backgrounds, according to according to several admissions officers. Several college admissions officers were worried that the supreme court with disallow race based affirmative action. And so they want just a proxy, Anthony carnival, director of Georgetown University center on education in the workforce said quote, the purpose is to get without using rates. So we want more black and Latino students, and so we will craft a work around who have more black and Latino students. Again, this sort of attempt to use proxies in order to get it without looking at the individual data of students is cruel to students on an individual level

Apple cancels AirPower wireless charging pad

"Apple has cancelled airpower. That's not an April Fools joke. It's not a typo. It's not a hoax. It's not a glitch in the matrix airpower is dead. And here's a statement. Apple sent me about it. On behalf of senior vice president of hardware engineering, Dan Richey, oh after much effort, we've concluded airpower will not achieve our high standards, and we have canceled the project, we apologize. So those customers we're looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward. Now, I've already made an air power video that covers the history of the product from announcement too late last year and a link to it and the description, so I'm not going to rehash any of that here or now, but there are so many questions so many hot takes so many rush uploads pubs and so much misinformation and misunderstanding circulating out there. I felt like I had to try at the very least to help all of you who support this channel all the time understand what happened and why? At least as much as possible for anyone outside the air power and executive teams at apple to really do that. So I'm Renee, Richie, and this is vector. Now, I was there at apple September twenty seventeen event where they announced airpower, and I was there in the demo room where they had the nonfunctional dummy, and I post and I pride at it. So I'm going to try doing this video just a little bit differently. In other words fact, this no seriously, we're going to FAQ all of this. Why didn't apple announce air power back in September of two thousand seventeen if it was never gonna ship fair question. Apple typically shows up ships. The keynote happens and executive hold up a shiny new product and says it's available that day. We'll be up for preorder that day or that week. It's what we expect. It's a big part of what makes apple apple sometimes though, it takes longer. Sometimes apple announces early to get ahead of industry or regulatory leaks. Like, the original iphone, which was shown off in January of two thousand seven but only hit stores in June or. Apple watch which was shown off in September twenty fourteen but only shipped in April twenty fifteen sometimes apple announces early to give developers extra time to get apps. Ready like the Intel Macs or the original I Pat or just to show their commitment to developers like the twenty thirteen MAC pro or twenty seventy nine MAC pro. And sometimes just sometimes apple announces early to show their commitment not to a community, but to technology with a halo product meant to help push the industry forward like when they deleted the headphone, Jack. But introduced air pods or. Yeah. When the added Chee standard inductive charging to the iphone and introduced airpower air power was meant to prove apple wasn't just doing inductive charging me to move or a gimmick. But was serious about the future being wireless and was willing to put their resources where their marketing was using their control over everything from hardware to software to build something unprecedented. Something quote, unquote, only apple to build that. No one else had done it before. And that some thought it couldn't be done. Didn't matter much. At least not at the time. Apple had a team of engineers that believed. It was possible apple executives bought into their vision. And so air power made it up onto the keynote stage. And there can't be anyone there now that feels happy about that green light not being a big flashing neon red light not anymore, but hasn't preannouncing bitten apple in the ass before absolutely several times. And while the vast majority of apple product ship on time, and in a way that is beyond stupefying to anyone with even the smallest most casual understanding of logistical processes involved. Preannouncing is always a huge risk sometimes delays like the white. I phone force jobs announced in June of twenty ten but due to issues with the color apple only manage to ship in April of twenty eleven air pods were delayed by a couple of months, I found ten ship later than I phone eight home pot took an extra half a year. So I phoned ten aria ship later than I phone tennis. Sometimes it's hardware, sometimes it software. And while it's irksome for everyone. We hear are irked. It's a react. Of doing product at massive scale, not just for apple. But specifically for these purposes for apple delays have always happened delays will always happen. And apple makes more products, apple risks more products. Experiencing more delays. It's why for the majority of the last few years at the end of the year when I make my big list of the biggest problems facing, apple shipping and scale are almost always among them. This never would have happened under Steve Jobs, right? Stop tons of stuff went wrong under Steve Jobs. I just listed a bunch and didn't even have to reach into the mobile me button list. Ipod cracked cube, apple maps box. No person. No leadership is perfect. And if you aren't stumbling every once in a while on your race to the finish line, then you aren't even really trying. So here's the deal. Anytime you see or hear anyone invoke the this would never have happened under Steve Jobs trope just politely suggest that instead of disrespecting the man's memory. Displaying a staggering ignorance of apple that they stick to the facts. There's no real argument. Worth winning the can't be one just on those anyway, but if other companies could ship airpower like patch couldn't apple at a glance. It went look like there are a bunch of other multi device Chee charging mats on the market with two or three zones for different phones. Maybe even a stand for apple watch. So what stop apple from making something similar in a word. Apple apple could've pushed out a simple three zone charger to standard. She won apple watch and been done with it. But I had a far bigger ambition than just a pad with two phone coils and a watch magnet instead of just three sweet spots at you had to find and different charging areas for phones in the watch the entire air power pad was meant to be one uniform charging area that you could just drop any device phone or watch on anywhere. And it would just figure it out the very different charging requirements all on its own. Well, a phone said of air pods in an inductive charging case and a watch or two phones and a watch at any rate. It wasn't going to be bogged cheese standard either because bog standard just couldn't do that back. Then it was gonna. Be beyond what the cheese dander could do. But apple said, they were going to work with cheap to make it part of a future standard. So that everyone could benefit from whatever advancements. Apple was able to bring to the table. But today absolutely no one has been able to do what apple set out to do with airpower, not even apple. So then what went wrong in a nutshell? Too many coils in two small space because physics a covered this part back in November of last year. Just allow me to introduce myself John Gruber writing for daring fireball on September fifteen what I've heard third hand. But from multiple little birdies is that airpower really is well and truly something about the multi coil design getting too hot way too hot. There are engineers who looked at airpower design and said, it could never work thermally. And now those same engineers have that told you so smug look on their faces last year apple was apparently swayed by arguments that they could figure out a way to make it not get hot. They were clearly wrong. I think either had to go completely back to the drawing board and start over with an entirely different. Design or they decided to give up and they just don't want to say so on September sixteen twenty eighteen sunny Dickson previously. Best known for finding demo units of pre-production, iphones and other devices from the Chinese supply chain posted what he heard was going on with airpower currently device produces far too much, heat, which causes performance setbacks and can affect the ability of the devices to charge if they become to warm in the process. It also affects the ability of apples custom charging chip which runs strip down version of to function as intended the mechanism being used for multi vice charging which we can confirm comprised of between twenty one and twenty four power coils of various sizes to accommodate the three main products to be charged which are broken into three identical. Charging groups is proving extremely difficult to build or a fine and has been resulting in a significant amount of interference up to this point, which reduces the efficiency of charging Matt and contributions to the heat issues that engineers facing what about Apple's relationship with supply chain has that changed? No. This was never about parts apples. Really makes the parts that make the parts. This was about those parts, given the current limits of technology, and you know, physics not being able to create the product apple wanted to create at least not functionally. But apple just secured the trademark and included airpower and packaging, an I o s and yeah, I feel you throughout this long tortured. Saiga apple has kept on fighting to bring airpower to market feeling like they were getting close to success to release planning for it and -ticipant it expecting it convincing themselves that was about to happen. Maybe a few times over the last year, but especially this year, but alas? Yeah. No at some point after delay after delay failureship after failureship investments and expectations and trademarks packaging, and even pride be damned apple had to make the call shipper product that just didn't work and risk further long term damage to their brand or kill it. Even after everything that's gone into it and take the short term hit now and learn and do better next time shipping is court, apples culture. Great artists. Ship is one of their oldest and most closely held mantras. But they're also a company that thinks in years, not months or days. So while I have no doubt that this was an excruciatingly hard choice one. They knew disappoint a lot of customers and lay waste to a lot of the work. Everyone inside the company had put into it so far and would haunt them for years to come. While have no doubt about that. I also think ultimately it was the right choice and the only choice because if airpower had shipped and not even worked. It would have been infinitely worse for everyone can apple start over and make a new airpower apple could make a much simpler, less ambitious inductive charging pad and even branded as airpower pretty much right away. Certainly in the time. It's taken between them announcing cancelling the original that they didn't choose to do that. And that the outsource their original basic cheat chargers to Belkin and Mosey probably means that that's just not the kind of product that's high up on Apple's to do list. Could apple make airpower originally conceived? Maybe one day with more time, maybe years more time when technology. Advances and all those coils can be managed affectively all at the same time. So what alternatives are their power while? There's nothing on the market that does what airpower wanted to do. There are a few multi vice charging options out there that do something much simpler and much more realistic. And hey, they exist a link to Moore's list of best multi chargers description below which has everything from no, Matt Malo. Casa Europe mask to Ola Burr. So you can check out all of those options. And hey, if you're industrious, and you see this as an opportunity, and you wanna know how you can get involved in engineering the next generation of chargers bid at apple or elsewhere checkout. Brilliant, brilliant, daily problems are fun bite-sized way to master concepts by applying them each problem comes with illustrations animations or interactive visualizations. And all the context you need to solve the problem yourself. If you like the problem wanna learn more, there's a related course at explores the same concept in greater detail, electrical engineering machine learning algorithms. It's all their everything you need to get started, maybe reinvent airpower. So if you want to actively learn new fascinating concepts each day and get twenty percent off the annual subscription to all problems in the archives. Just be one of the first two hundred head on over to brilliant dot org slash vector and finish your day a little smarter every day. Thanks brilliant. And thanks to all of you for supporting the show. So yeah. R I p airpower not even September twenty seventeen to March twenty nineteen it never shipped not one unit. Not for one minute. It just didn't work. And so apple new it just had to die, and that's sobering. Not in the callous because so many people spend so much time expecting it. And so many more so much more time working on it. But in a way that reminds everyone no amount of money or history can guarantee future success. And I'm sure that's what apple is going to spend the next days in months. Figuring out. Just exactly what went wrong with airpower procedurally organizationally, and operationally and assuring can't ever go wrong in the same way again. And that's how air power will. Not in thermal overload or in darkness. But as a case study at apple university brought out anytime anyone even thinks of over promising and under delivering again, and hopefully preannouncing in just this way.
