Where is Voice Search Going? | Ep.
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them. To a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream. Host DOT COM slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about where voice search is going so neil overall. I mean voice. Search we look at the Alexis. We look at the Google homes. Look even Apple Apple home. I think we've got the mixed up but a lot of voice devices right and I think still in today's Day and age in two thousand twenty we still have. It really realized the potential of voice. So where do you think voice search is going kind of for maybe the next year? Maybe the next three years or so. Yes according to Calm Score. Quick Stat over fifty percents searches now are boysearch. The other thing that we found to interesting data in which we're seeing that when people are doing boy searches the queries are roughly doubled the length as when they're typing into Google. Because you can get more specific you know like find me a pizza restaurant that's close to here. Or what is the closest gas station right? Like people are typing much more specific terms. The real question is is when you're going after a voice search. We already know it's here to stay. Where do you know more people are going to use it? The real question is like how? Are you going to capitalize on this traffic right? Like it's going to get more popular. It's going to get integrated to more offline devices. Just GonNa end up monetize it. That's the trickiest part. Would you agree? Yeah no I it's hard. I think kind of where we are with voice search right now. Is We for Marketing School? If you're using Alexa device you can actually find. Actually a lot of people listen to us on Alexa. Which is incredible. And it's Kinda Sad. People rate is four stars on there. But it's more so they're blaming kind of the shortcomings of Alexa so far not so much to content so I'm looking at some stats here. This is actually coming from blog. Posts from Bracken's info graphic so more than sixty six million Americans now own smart speaker so that's pretty big. I mean what how many Americans are the three hundred thirty million or or four hundred million so you hundred something. Yeah so we look at things. I mean they're saying fifty percent of all searches will be voice searches by twenty one. I use voice quite a bit on Siri and Alexa a couple times a day. You know people are saying they're likely to purchase items from voice. I have yet to do that. I've never purchased something using voice so far. I don't know if you have. Neil I have through tests you're gonNA see people using voice for ordering food pizza stuff like that. I've also purchased stuff from Amazon using voice. That wasn't a test because Amazon will have your recent orders and I'll just place orders using my Alexa device for like diapers and stuff like that. Because we just need him so often and I have the I think it's called Alexa. Drop so it also has screened. That makes it easier as well but yeah no. It's funny enough. We find it easier to purchase household goods using Alexa than we do on our computer. We're starting to use it more frequently. Yeah and I'll tell you what I mean. What actionable for those of you listening right now because I know a lot of people are interested in Seo more than forty percent of voice search answers are pulled from the featured snippets. So it's still continuing to figure out how you can occupy the features snippets knowing that more than fifty percent of Google's searches right. Now are zero. Click meeting people. Don't actually click through so you've got to figure out how you can continue to compete for valuable real estate and then the other thing too is if you're struggling to figure out how to monetize through voice search there's apps like Jetson. Ai That make it much easier and then over time it will change. There'll be more and more yup and the other thing I'll say to is if you think about the voice experience you know as the experience improves overall. It's not as Clunky as it is now. I still personally think it's clunky. The user experiences a lot better so voice cerps load a lot faster right. We're talking. Maybe fifty two percent faster than the average webpage so as people get more and more used. It seems like Neal's getting used to it to become more of a habit. It's a habit that we train. I think you know. Transactions are going to go up a lot from voice right now. I think it's very early days but you. Kinda have to prepare it. Because you know that it's going to be a better user experience you know from your perspective. It's getting tougher. Franken Google. So you've got to think about what you can do especially for e commerce to Cya cover your ass and just think about voice searching this one way. Remember when you have this old school mobile devices and you can barely do anything autumn. And you're like oh no one's GonNa buy from these devices now. Mobile makes up over fifty

Window Shade Wars
"All right we'll start off with The first item in our news folder which is item a pilot's on a southwest airlines jet secretly watched live video from a camera or did they in the aircraft lavatory according to a cabin having flight attendant who is suing the American company. This is from probably not an American company. Oh yes it's from the Times Dot Todo. UK Rene Steinecker who was based in Arizona claims. She saw images from the lavatory. On Captain Terry Grams Ipad pad when she entered the cockpit on fly between Pittsburgh and Phoenix and twenty seventeen he had gone to relieve himself a physiological break. We'd like to call call it and she was there to join the co-pilot Ryan Russell to comply with security rules. That require two crew members in the cockpit at all times according to MS snickers suit she saw video of the captain and the Lavatory on the IPAD which was attached to his side window so his electronic flight bag was displaying video apparently or supposedly from a camera that was secretly Placed in the Lavatory The co-pilot had a quote panicked. Look on his face and said there was a camera in the laboratory because of a quote new top secret. Security measure installed. In all of southwest's Boeing seven thirty-seven Dash eight hundred planes. That's what her lawsuit claims. They led her to believe that she and others had been filmed while they were using the laboratory according to her lawyer the pilots and the airline have have denied the allegations. We can't confirm from our investigation that there was never a camera in the lavatory. The instant the incident was an inappropriate attempt at humor which the company did not condone according to unofficial southwest statement and. No date has yet been set for hearing so it looks like it was a little little effort of a gag. A joke a prank gone bad yet not a very good prank. To begin with. They weren't thinking that I hire I used to play. I thought we he had three camera cameras. that We regularly used the one that monitored the Dole but we could look on another the two cameras that were position overhead the corners of the guy to make sure there was no one hiding in the in any of the corners that we couldn't see with the first camera and when you flash is very hard to orientate itself exactly what the picture was could use looking straight down on people and we used to kick the cabin crew. Do that She they were in the toilets and we surprised up just for a second service. It's not polite to look so we turn it straight off again but We a lot of quizzical looks from the cabin crew. Sometimes move really. Look at the toilets. Well you know what you're lucky. Nobody seemed here Yeah exactly not looking in the toilets. Yeah Yeah I'm GonNa say you had not looking at the toilet so I I wonder why when she found out that the whole thing was a gag or prank or whatever and there really wasn't a US a photo I mean a camera in the laboratory I wonder why she continued to decide to go ahead and pursue a lawsuit. I don't think she believes some. Yeah I don't think she believes it's a prank or a guy or a preg- as they tried to say a word. Yeah okay well. I thought that was still taking it seriously. She saw something on the ipad that was on the FBI or whatever it was attached to the hungry in which made letter got to believe. There was a camera there. but Nah just seems like a nicely in a frivolous story probably has very little founding in fight. Our producer says it's for emotional damages the lawsuit pranking people. People can coast damages. Okay well I better not say anything else lest I get in trouble so Apparently apparently the co-pilot was a pretty good actor. He looked like he was concerned that it was probably. Let's do this. This is a great idea. You know I I yeah I will say this though in a professional setting I tend not to joke around at all hardly And the reason being is because of stuff like unless you really never know how your audience who could be someone you really don't know very well is going to take something that you mean lighthearted with a sense of humor You don't they're gonNA take it the wrong way so if you're in a professional environment Especially either of your working with people. You don't know very well. I was colleagues. who kind of changed changed locations in your case is played attendants copilot's things like that who you may not work with on a regular basis or with members of the public who you don't know from Adam might not be a great idea to joke around too much? I do know Adam okay then. You're okay I think it's safe nightside. That is a golden rule Yeah which should not be bracken but some on. It's like me have very sense of humor. We think we're right. We think we're very funny but we're not. Yeah we'll speak for yourself. That's what I mean. I think you're funny okay. let's move on then shall we item B Let's see an F thirty five live a based in the Netherlands got a foam bath instead of a water bath. You know how they do the shooting the water cannons and the airplane goes through it base. Firefighters were supposed to give the plane a water salute to mark the arrival of the first joint strike fighter to be based in the country Crash trucks at the Royal Netherlands. Air Force's Lou Vardon airbase where some to provide a water cannon salute to mark the arrival the country's first operational F thirty five Joint Strike Fighter to be based in the country but covered it in firefighting foam by accident instead the base fighter. Fires the fighter fires. Firefighters had reportedly responded to an actual emergency involving an F Sixteen Viper fighter jet earlier and forgot to switch back to shooting regular water for the ceremony the oops The F thirty five arrived at the base at around three thirty PM local time and landed after flying elaborate on the base according to official press. Release the jet had flown from the final assembly and checkout Baco never heard of that before facility the in Italy where Leonardo had assembled it under license from the primary manufacturer Lockheed Martin. That was something I didn't real- Vinci I think so just one guy he's very smart very Yes but the paintings nice painting he makes it very Nice Nice. It's very artistic. I hear okay The Dutch Air Force already has eight other joint strike fighters but they are all all in the United States where they support test pilot training activities. Those aircraft have made multiple visits to the Netherlands since two thousand sixteen but are not permanently based in the country. The country his buying forty-six of the jets and total including nine more. Ed agreed to purchase just this month amusingly despite including pictures clearly. Showing the mix of the official release makes no mention of the mix up. Yeah we don't WanNA embarrass ourselves. Doing the foam is seen dripping from the plane. As the pilot Ian Knight the commander of the three twenty-three test and evaluation squadron exits the aircraft agreed crowd including various government dignitaries. The Air Base Fire Department was on standby for the water salute. When they were called to an actual emergency? We already know this another way to state it in a different words in a different order. But we're not gonNA I just Just in case you didn't understand that first paragraph where they gave the exact same information so anyway the moving on. It's not not clear what this might mean for the aircraft which ingested some of the phone into the engine intakes and the engine itself. I don't think so much about that as I would with that special coating that makes that one of the components that makes that F thirty five a a very stealthy jet right nick. I A high if that special coating count withstand. I don't know exactly what chemicals are in that phone but I would hope that it could withstand most that nature contri- gains it included acid rain and all the normal stuff you can get in the AL polluted atmosphere. Nowadays I would. I be wouldn't have done it too much damage. Well I have seen like News articles that say that there was a an airplane crash in the firefighting foam. That it was used to take care of the situation somehow leached into or got into the local stream or river. Whatever and they're telling people not to eat or drink from the water or eat any of the fish that were downstream from that place in your thinking? Yeah there must be some really good to ingest but hopefully if they rinsed it off fairly quickly they will have got away with it. But if you don't see that airplane for a fly for a while we'll know Jeffrey Jeffrey saying it's not potable. It's not potable. Thank you Boy It's been a long time since played that in that means as I can't find it but here go. Potable is not possible. Come to that. What else was I gonNA say? It was very he said Holy Crap I really further on the famous certainly didn't appear to dampened the spirits of those who attended the ceremony. Dont Chapo Southern Colonel Learns Yan Psych Vic. Why did they have some old names? Nailed it yeah. Glad you gave a speech to the crowd in which he explained his own experience of flying the the F. Thirty five for the first time holy crap for a moment. I felt like a teenager on a very cool skateboarding Florida. He said now. I was here skateboarder in his youth. I wonder but Dude I'm live a felt a bit better than being on a skateboard.
"bracken" Discussed on The Vergecast
"The DAX in naval us not to have to raise more money all the time and really maybe give us advantage as we can have another way so that's really how it went down and then you get into the discussion on how much you pay is absolutely we're their consumers for sexy and what changes should you see sort of short medium long term well help you don't see anything short term because you we think a ruse super easy way and so I don't have anything specific to say except you know I think they were doing great stuff and I hope we'll do a lot of great stuff together the future support the robot financially often yeah the the largest company comes by startup and says we're just gonNA find your roadmap we're just gonNa go for it you can go a lot faster than you were before it was one of the promises you made or you think they're operating threat speed actually there were really well I mean I is I said it not you but they had a whole bunch of cash sitting on the in their bag waiting for them to do they need to do so they really need us I mean they really did it because you know what we were thinking long term and we the way you guys just thinking and you're really interested in in enabling strangest either to at least have a lot of fun and be an effort to be easy then maybe to make money and make a living doing it so so we were we were both at a very similar point of view on this I think that was probably more important than the funding of their roadmap but but I do think it when touchdown longer if you're if you're in the startup that does need money you know certainly we will we wanna make sure that there will find out there especially the people running the visit are out there trying to raise money all the time when I met with probably like you have met with probably thousands and thousands of founders and is just breaks my heart is most of the time when I realized that you know these founders have this huge passion for the business like in their case streaming and broadcasting and then you realize actually they're spending six percent of time talking to venture capitalists angels and try to sell their story and twenty or forty or twenty percent of their time another does it work but I'll get the twenty minutes really doing what they love the other twenty percents administering the businesses waste maybe we can help so hopefully this will get them to eighty or one hundred percent of the time what they're really excited about love you don't really offer business as much with the software business you don't have inventory on the shelf so this is your first software business it's it's an expansion for you maybe not conceptually but it's certainly an expansion in a different ecosystem the different economy how are you thinking about okay can we can change operate now that we're shifting software not hardware the most important thing we're that we'd be doing learning because you Ali and his brother the these two guys have a lot more to teach us we have to teach them so or going into this there is wide open trying to make sure we learn I keep looking on the shelf signed to see stream lapses not there you know so so there's a there's nothing to see on the shelf because it's agonize ships and CD-ROMS we're not shipping or stream laps so a getting side we're we're here to learn and they get a lot to teach us and we're going to be the look more and more like this across what service we've launched we have launched software only products number much to capture which is a an editing software for for things like ordinary now video creation and consecration so we're we're increasingly getting into that space and and I think we've got a lot to learn from them and and auditory carey which we like I mean that's that's why people like making software are more software any feature we're we're probably I don't know the exact resort pride hiring software engineers to to win over hardware engineers now we still love hardware but we're doing a lot softer increase in services so yeah there there will be there's a lot worse off for our future like consumer software products not extreme labs not software to support the hardware yes exactly not not just firmware real software be business which we haven't talked about we're we're in the video conferencing equipment business there but we're doing our law software there to writing software now we're at it department can actually track all the devices in all the rooms that they have and and Kinda what usage looks like and we've got a I built into those that's it's somewhere between firmware untraditional software or doing more more and you'll see a lot more softer messner future over the next decade so one thing I hear a lot we cover a huge ranger companies the big companies were really interested in small companies especially small hardware companies and we watched them come up we watch them try to succeed we watch a lot I'm I'm a sucker for direct to consumer car chargers on Instagram it's like they're all targeted right at me and then we watch them ops right they don't have the scale the manufacturing hard you know updating harbor product after design and he'd go out and get feedback is is really difficult what's kept you water is just you've got one business it's pretty good and you can try all these other ones is it people trust your brand what keeps you out of the sort of rocky hardware world where we we see so many people just failed to get the scale and I'd have to sell themselves or just collapse well you know so we we've gone from it ever when I got here eight or nine categories the twenty seven now so we're in twenty seven distinct categories right so first of all we've got a portfolio and that portfolio is across different things and some of them are stable some of them are slightly finding some of them are super high growth so we've got that whole world of small company hardware that startups that you describe is sitting inside our company we also run this is that way so each of the individual businesses operate almost like small companies when when we when we do buy something like you described earlier they are literally small company come in we also eight new businesses by hiring former entrepreneurs and putting them in charge of something new that we're not in yet or that we don't even the category doesn't even exist yet and week protect and we keep them we keep them quiet we give them just enough resources a lot less than a venture capitalist as we say let's go let's try to create something so we've got we're doing all that and that's all insider four walls where the where the typical hardware startup trips up is the same place that anybody in hardware does it's it's it's really the supply chain the supply chain starts with you know I need a certain component from a supplier and usually if you're small initiative you're not you have to make a six month commitment to that and then you've got somebody making it aureus there's work in process inventory in the factory and then it's got to be transported to a boat or to the plane and there's got to make it over here and then it's going to go into a best buy or Amazon into a warehouse and that's going to get a consumer's home and during the early growth phases it's really exciting because everybody wants to give you money every venture capitalists interested you've got high growth this is really sexy hopefully gross margins are good so all that feels looks a lot like the typical startup in software space where it all changes in the music stops and you've got to find a chair as fast as possible is when the the growth project sorry lowers that's the dark moment because when that growth trajectory lowers that inventory you've got sitting throughout that chain especially as it gets closer and closer to the customer it ends up being a whole lot of times worth of inventory and and then suddenly you need money and then you go back to those same people are so happy give it to you before but I just need money because actually my growth is slowing and I've got a whole lot of inventory out there they don't want to give you money anymore and so the music's really stopped and there's not even a single chair there and you have to sit on the floor and it's over ah are thousand maybe and I love them you know and and I knew and they start to get in trouble I we've we've bought companies were in trouble at times some we some were great shape but it's a it's a tough road hardware so I'm looking at sort of the market of hardware startups and you're saying e rain entrepreneurs you give them it start-up like protection and you say okay go make a business you've got division of your company saying you run the business but I look at sort of the explosion of direct consumer hardware startups even medium-size startup so we really like like era they just like had to go to Amazon they just had to sell themselves Amazon amateurs how do you keep inside logitech besides you're saying we got your back don't worry about it we're we're better at supply chain stuff and we can write out how do you keep how do that curve going inside of the company for your individuals take your your incubating I we're choice'll about where we play we really try hard not to compete with those really big players you know where we can because you know it's so much easier to win when you're fighting somebody who is much smaller than you are so we tend not to be in battles where directly with apple and Google you know it's just not our choice we make often the startups have made that choice and even if they didn't mean to in the beginning that that's what it turned into so it's so I yeah I'll try not to be in that fight the second one is you know one of the reasons they get in trouble they're usually burn cash right that's the way it works you burn cash you invest invest invest in at some point the lights go on and everything's working and in a great case scenario the beats or or go pro you know you just I it's all everything's great you know we we on the other hand can really protect that and we we can burn cash on businesses for a long time and and we we balanced portfolio so we can give people can give a founder or a somebody running a new business real room and time and patience and we are were super patient maybe two Asian sometimes so I think that's probably the big difference where we can protect them from the market dynamic of having to raise money so give me walk you through example so you but ultimate ears when ultimate ears independent as a huge ultimate ears fan this is my hearing was better than I was huge fan I had their fancy in here ed phones you buy them now they're mass market consumer end idiot pretty high end headphones brand and then they put the boom they've really changed the Edward Lucia speakers what was that process like yes started very early days you know in my first year here with a Bluetooth Speaker category is working we're a small team that was trying to figure out how can.

Scientists find shocking levels of plastic pollution
"Shocking evidence of the pollution that pervades the world oceans has come to light with the discovery of huge amounts of debris, littering, the coastline of some remote islands in the Indian Ocean, Clive cooks and the science editor discusses the scientific evidence and its investigations with Leslie hook aren't environment. Correspondent. So where exactly are the Cocos islands and what was found there? The cook hosts keeling islands pretty remote there, about two thousand kilometers northwest of the nearest point of Australia that just within the Indian Ocean. What was fun? That is really horrific amounts of plastic debris across the beaches of these twenty-seven islands only two of which are inhabited the researchers estimate. And they say this is a very conservative estimate that there were four hundred million individual pieces of plastic weighing a total of two hundred thirty eight tonnes, so a truly horrific amount of rubbish, and how does one go about measuring that tremendous amount of plastic. I mean, do people researchers physically count each plastic straw or how did it? Work. They did this team of four stray. Leeann researches led by Jennifer lavars from the university of Tasmania. They did it as professional surveyors would just making sure that they looked and counted, the plastic on every beach and not just on the surface of the beach. They went down ten centimeters. And one of the shocking findings of this survey. Is that ninety percent of the waste that they found was not visible on the surface as Jennifer told me that's just the tip of the iceberg. So if you look at what looks like a pristine beach because he's being cleaned up. The might still be horrors under the sand. Tell me a bit more about the items that they found what was prevalent. It was a horrible cross section of single use plastic items. They found for example, three hundred seventy three thousand plastic. Toothbrushes and also they found almost a million shoes. Now, these islands are in the path of something called the Indonesian through flow current. So that taking in items from right across the Pacific, which flowing past the gap between Indonesia and Australia into this part of the India, nation said that collecting stuff from right across both shores of the Pacific, and because it's a global ocean that collecting stuff, probably from the Atlantic to now this report comes at a time when there's been a surge in research into plastic waste in oceans. What's been driving this surge of new research? And what does it tell us about the human impact on the natural world? I think it's only recently that the techniques of the in developed to investigate what may be the most pernicious forms of plastic waste. And those are micro. I biz and microparticles aplastic and research labs around the world of finding new ways of looking for those. I mean, part of the driver is to find out what is happening to these plastics, when they get into living organisms, Jennifer, Labor's, the leader of this project is also looking at what happens to plastics in seabirds, and she's going to be Publishing's and stuff on that later this year, but we already know that it's having a bad effect on wildlife. Whether it's having a bad effect on people is not yet clear. I mean that research is really only just getting going toxicology labs. And is it possible to clean up all this plastic when we're talking about four hundred million pieces of plastic on the Cocos islands? I mean is it just going to stay there we can do superficial cleanups? And as part of this project after they'd counted, they did remove quite a lot of the debris. That was showing on the beaches. But you can't remove everything from under the surface, without rather, destroying the beach, because you'd have to dig it up and sifted if it was a sandy beach. And I don't think you can clean up the stuff in the open oceans. No. I mean, there are some projects to try and do that to sort of sweep the worst patches. These ocean gyros these swirling amounts, like the great Pacific garbage patch as it's come to be known. There are projects to scoop the stuff off. But from everything I've read it will only make a tiny percentage might be worth doing, but it's not going to solve the problem. We can solve the problem. Only really for the future by stopping more stuff going in, and that's something that, you know, more about in terms of this policy, that's being developed to reduce the flow of plastics into the oceans. Well, and there has been some really interesting developments in the last few days on that front to addressing the global trade. In plastic waste, which for years was really getting shipped from developed countries to developing countries for processing and then some of that would end up in the ocean. So I think the timing of this new research is really interesting on that front and earlier this month, we saw the UN vote to approve amendments to the Basel Convention, which will have the effect of making the trade in plastic waste much more difficult and will really cut down on the volume of plastics that are getting shipped around the world. Particularly from developed to developing countries. What are the targets roughly? And how can it be enforced this darn? Well, the Basel Convention is a treaty that was designed to address hazardous waste so think of a best os and incinerator ash. And this change basically adds certain types of plastics to the list of controlled substances. So mixed plastics, contaminated plastics, things that are very hard to recycle the technical details. I won't go into but the ultimate. Impact of these changes will be that the US and e you will not be able to export any of these types of plastics at all. So that is a huge shift for the other countries. There's over one hundred eighty countries that have signed the Basel Convention. They will be able to trade in these types of plastics, but only with the prior consent of the country, accepting the import, so that will add a step that will slow down those traits as well. So if wealthy countries context bought the nasty plastics, are they gearing up to recycle them at home is Britain, for example, is the US actually doing something to keep its plastics and recycle them properly here. Yes. So we've seen a huge surge in investment in the US the UK and across the EU into recycling facilities that are closer to home historically. China was, of course, the biggest center were all this recycling took place. And now that the. Trade. Patterns have shifted dramatically. We've in fact, seen several Chinese recycling companies investing in plants all across the states to take their business there. This is often an energy intensive and highly polluting industry. So it's now going to be a bit closer to the source of where the waste is coming from. And how do you think we're getting on with actually consuming fewer of these single use plastics, the plastic straws plastic cups, and will those other things that according the pollution, why think that's a really interesting question in way, that is the most important question? Because none of this really makes that much difference if everyone goes on consuming as much disposable plastic, as they have in the past, and that's the part of the equation, where we haven't seen perhaps as much movement, while there has been a great public consciousness and sort of uproar over single use, plastics, I haven't seen any research that suggests that single. Plastics have really declined yet bought in our new FTE home, Bracken house, during no, plastic cups and scores anything like that. So we're doing our bit. That's really are.

"Lose their TPS status for the world. Amy Bracken LA Boule Haiti a quick update. Now to a story we first covered this past winter on the world. That is a captive whale. That will being held in a small pan near the Russian far east city of Nakodhka on the Pacific Ocean. One of almost one hundred orcas and beluga whales captured last summer apparently for illegal sale to marine parks in China. Several may have died since then others may be sick activists have been trying for months to get the Russian government to step in and rescue the whales from what they're calling a wail jail now for the update the authorities have since brought charges against four companies, and they're promising to release the whales back into the wild. If they can they've decided to see how we could eventually rehabilitate them, and hopefully, we stem that's marine activists Yami shell Cousteau. Yes of that Cousteau family. He's part of a group of activists and scientists who signed a deal with the Russian government to try to help the whales. Learn to live again in the wild Cousteau says the goal is to release all of them. But activists Charles Vinik. Who's also part of the effort thinks. That won't be quick or easy. Not only. Do we have to understand the health conditions of h wail? We also have to look at where it is appropriate to transport them. So that they can be having the best opportunity have food and guidance of older adults vinick helped lead the effort to free a captive. Orca named Keiko in two thousand and two, you know, Free Willy fame Keiko's released an Iceland was widely publicized. But what most people may not remember is that it ultimately failed. Scientists say Keiko never really learned to socialize with other orcas or find his own food, and he died after about eighteen months back in the wild. So the challenge of freeing, these Ninety-seven Wales in Russia is pretty big. And the activists say they don't yet have a plan for rehabilitating them. So no happy ending yet to the story of Russia's wail jail. But a Ray of hope you're listening to the world this podcast.

"Let's go to Bracken midtown. Under fan. Good evening side. Pretty men. Are you doing well? I'm doing well. Just so, you know, love exciting stuff going on exports. So the trade rumors think's going on there. I mean, I just wanted to talk about just kinda the jets and the Knicks. I know it's different sports. But just with the ownership and just kinda having these guys with when you have the wrong owner Hal could really put you on April forever. I mean, I'm looking at the Knicks. And I mean, they have a one in forty six years. You look at the judge. They have one Joe nameless. We're still talking about John Amos. It's half a century ago. Tell stuff I'm hoping with Donald you know, I heard somebody loud a plan last night within the next ten years. Maybe they'll go to the playoffs. Six seven times when a couple of Super Bowls in my crazy, self. I'm actually believe in it, which drives me nuts. But you know, I'm optimistic. I guess you gotta you gotta hope and then one day maybe I'll be like that hundred and five year old cubs fan. No in the win. At all, Hoppy that guy with Mike Greece's sweater on. And I'll get to enjoy it. But hey, I just with the ownership groups, there should be some sort of way. Where almost like if a company to run the wrong way, you know, the Sanson have input. I know it's not a stockholder situation. And there's really kind of another dictatorship. Was because you imagine the people make an putting in an offer to buy stock divide the team or something like that. Do you could do it? But when you get to these guys that are that are I mean, yes, some owners out there that businessmen who built their way up and the proven they're going to make the right moves in and you have other people who are kind of spoiled children who are gifted teams. And I mean, there's a big difference. When you have it what it comes down to is. It's it's an ego thing it's not really the money. They're not going to need the money to Johnson's with the band aids cable vision. I mean, they'd have anomaly for twenty years with the cable. So I mean, they're not gonna need the money, and I can't see either of them with the ego involved. You know, giving it up. Tough spot as New York sports fan because I mean, it's been way too long. Better. No, look, I agree with you. It's, but you know, what you think back to the Yankees had run late. Ninety nine tonight late nineties into early two thousands, you think of I guess what's the golden era? I guess recently go back, you know, it's going back away with a win the jets and the Knicks and the Mets were all winning. You know, you look at Boston Boston and win nothing for ages. And all of a sudden, everybody's win something. But you know, what is people always will say like the wilpon to sell needs to sell this stories in the paper. Yesterday about Dolan to me is I come on. Now, if you're a businessman. And you're selling something. You don't start negotiations about? Hey, we'll talk about selling. You just do it behind closed doors. And then if it works it works, and you tell people if it doesn't you keep your mouth shut people will find out later. They wouldn't go shame. It didn't work out. Okay. That's it. But. He's not selling most of these guys on sell. I understand Dolan's situation. You have people yell at of and make you scream at them doing this, and you stink and they're human. We don't want to believe it. They're humans like nobody wants to be yelled at like that. And they all want all owners would love to be. Beloved to be Tom Tom Benson. The former owner of the safe of dancing with a parasol on on on the field as your team goes to the championship. That's what the owners want one anything else. They can't play the game. But they wanna be able to ride in either ride in the parade. What just sit back and look at it. Because even if you win some some guys won't give the credit to the owner. But you know, what it is with an owner. If if your team wins, the players, get get the accolades coaches. The owner is a little bit. When you went a lot. And he said, oh, man. It's the owner of the patriots with craft. You may not like some of the things they've done various gates, but they win and fans, you know, when you're starving for a winner. You'll just you do. Okay, one. That's all that matters. And when you play a long long time think about all the years of cubs never won anything who was who was the owner of the cubs. All the is the Red Sox. It was Tom Yawkey remember him. Sometimes you remember. Sometimes you want. When you win. Who was the owner of the of the Green Bay Packers? When Lombardi was coaching. I don't know was it was it was it owned owned by all the fans back, then I don't remember probably not. And most of the time sometimes the onus on what they're doing. You just. You hope they have the money, and you hope they hire the right people to run their business. Let's go to Ryan. And keep what Ryan you're on the fan. Tony page. Oh that must be in Hawaii today. Good global about the Mets fan. Chris of when Samir. Yes, indeed. I wanna talk about the Angela Russell who looks a little bit like a star in this league sorta come and how the Mets are in the future look in very very well and the all season if they look to improve with maybe a superstar like Hawaii, or maybe it's by Paris right now, we're looking pretty good. I'm hoping for at least eight to sixty and the playoffs. What do you think? I think the same thing. I mean, everybody can get gets a spot. But if you win a couple extra games you you'd be the sevens. I think they could give the seven maybe maybe a little higher. We'll see what happens when when lavar it comes back. But you think of what Billy king did to this team, and how is slowly pull themselves out of the hole when he lost. What it was it? Was it six or eight they lost earlier in the year and said, oh here we go again. And now, they they're gentleman what they have. And they listened to the coach and they play hard, and they beat the Lakers ain't a sell out. I mean, that's that's bigger. Maybe they start to become the hot ticket that the Knicks are not I give a lot of Prosser GM. So Mark what he did with the ngelo. Russell Gema trade pretty much for free. We got him. And then charissa Virgil. Jared Allen Holly staffer fan all those guys. He's on a quite a good job. I can't believe where we are right now from wherever you at probably three years ago. The look you you're absolutely right and GM gets a lot of credit for what they've done and. Vert? Nope. No crab last night. Guys step up, and I heard I was listening to the coach the full press conference where I was waiting for the train and he was saying every night at somebody else. And Russell Lakers gave up on such a high draft pick another bus. You know, we got moody and this guy, and he was playing well with lavar here and he's continued to play. Well, you know, he's. I was going to be all star team. Now, maybe it's Russell because when you know when you win and you're the leading scorer or your the go-to guy people take notice. I'm going to get carried away to the best team in the east conference isn't Carbonell. But touted that ACC and some guys will say, well, you know, what I don't do that. Don't you wanna get a good draft pick look. You can't. Teach a winning culture until you win. And if what you have on your roster is causing you to win. Then that's what happens. The nets have a chance when they go out every chance to win. The Knicks when they go out they have a chance to lose. Whether they down by twenty or up by twenty somethings going to something's going to go wrong. Either way. They'll be down by twenty they'll come back cut it to five. And then that's it. You don't have any further. They're up by twenty blow to lead. Let's go to John and trek right bridge. John. How are you? John. You might have dropped his phone in a dole or something. I don't I don't know. Seven seven three thousand seven sixty six sixty six give us a call back. So he dropped his phone when the truck it's got to go back and get it. But I I it's for me when my my teams stink like the bucks a done. You know, they beat the Cowboys. That's that's army beating navy. That's all that's left is nothing. There's nothing left there. Regular season. Winston all that kind of stuff. But you know, you just if you're a sports fan, you just try and find something to hold your interest. You might have a temporary fix on a club that like you're not if you're a jet fan, you're not going to say, okay, I'm gonna I'm gonna follow the patriots. No, you won't you follow the patriots. Hope they lose. The giants. You know, if the Cowboys win or the eagles win, you're not gonna go. They win the division. You're not all of a sudden the root for them. But you know, you just I want, you know, when I look at is I I like to look at teams, which may not be my favorite team. I like to see if this successful. What are they doing? Is it the vibe that they're giving off is at the energy is hustle? Is it make little plays? But that's what I'm looking for. Maybe you know, my team will pick up on that. Let's go to Jimmy and Waterbury. Jimmy what's going on? I how are you? Thank you for taking my call. Sure. What's up? Or just coming back from the nets game. What it gave an exciting game. Well, what was what was the crowd? Like, I was it was it was great. It was. It was very intense crowd. Didn't get into it. It's my I mean, there were more LeBron. Was it a LeBron crowded? I. It was all yellow everything was yellow. And there was so many people from Europe and all over the place just coming in those. It was pretty cool. But but the intensity on the floor. These guys were giving it was like, a playoff atmosphere was awesome. Nice. It's it's that might be the team to look at it in the next couple of months because I I liked the coach and the way they play for him. Awesome. Awesome. I appreciate you taking my call with you a great holiday. Thank you. Same to you. Now. He's back. John in Nebraska, John you there. Hey, how you doing? All right. Things like that you said about. If. He made your team. I mean, if he was looking here. I'd like to explain that to me. But. He said, why don't we move second. We could hit the second. Sure. The natural shortstop. Man. I don't want to go. You take. Wait a contract or without a contract. And if leaves without you take so they'll be in. I think as a pathway. I don't I don't think there'll be any kind of deal. Today. I think it's because he still has to meet with the Phillies tomorrow. So, you know, if you're as scheduled the meeting, I don't think they're going to, you know, y you know, you may go to the Yankees and give you what you want. Then you talk to the Phillies, they give you more. So, you know, you never time opportunity or they keep saying he wants to be a Yankee. So I I don't know. It'd be it'd be interesting because I think when you're in that situation you got free agency. You let's say you have six teams want wanna talk to you. You talk to all six now, you may not you may not play all against each other. They've some somebody just cancel out because you don't like the years and the money, but I- Ricky Ricardo keep saying he's going to Philly. I tell you what why? But I don't know if you want the money, or do you want the championship, you take a championship, you might take less money and you're moving around. I it I don't know. I mean, he's gonna demand so much. Thank you. I don't know how much. The Yankees the Yankees need them. You know, I don't think they need. I think they want to go because if they could use because of the situation. We don't know you we back, and that's just throwing on that he had surgery on. So we don't know how good it will be. And we got a lot of production from so like put a band-aid on that. Because you're going to be missing induction and Machado was definitely I think you'll become a better hater he won't depend on hitting the lineup like like Sanchez, and and and judge around I think it'd be a tweet tweet twenty five eight and the situation right away. He'll be informed. I think you're turn into you know, the ball definitely capable of being you know, what? And you know, what he might look at that and say, you know, what this might be the place to really, you know, it balls. Oppose a filial. Baltimore you sometimes a check swing a homerun eight seven seven three thousand seven sixty six sixty six we'll come back with some baseball right after this. When it comes to taking care of.

"The occasion is the award of the F T and McKinsey Bracken Bauer prize to the best business. Book proposal by author aged under thirty five the prize. This year has gone to Andrew Leon Hannah for his proposal. Twenty five million sparks, and we're joined by him and his fellow finalists Christian Bush whose book proposal is entitled the certain deputy factor. And pew me Catholic Yana who wrote one billion in reserve. We'll be hearing a little from them later. I I want to introduce our panel. Georgina Laycock is non-fiction publisher at John Murray. Publishes? Joe Rickett is deputy publisher e berry part of penguin Random House and managing director elect of Abry and a judge of the breckon by price and Jonathan Conway has his own. On literacy Jonathan Conway, literally agency, specializing in all forms of non-fiction. So let me start Georgina with you. If I may what are you looking for in a business book proposal, it's something that makes me look things differently? So I feel the best Burks kind of cost bit of a spell new, but they make you look at the world. And then understand that you can't take things for granted that you should have done. And do you have an example of something that has turned into a wonderful book from a proposal cross Joel press? Well, there was a book published dude. Couple of years back cool work rules, which was written by less than book. Who is the? Head of human resources at Google, and I think people operations because that's that's a bit more human. But he wrote a really interesting proposal, and I could see that they were the germs of something really interesting in that. And then he it was sort of like working with him. So that he broadened it out beyond Google. And then it sort of like rules for how other companies could take the things that work for them. But I suppose one question from that would be the fact that he was Laszlo Bock people Gucci was a pretty big calling card. It was a big cooling coat. So it So was it was kind kind of. of one of his room. It's helping him break free of being book and do something that actually work universally. So I think people would be more interested in hearing what he had to say. But then he actually he was more interested in the people Google, right? Jonathan you get to see some of these proposals. Perhaps in earlier stage is that something you work on with business book writers or nonfiction writers? Absolutely. It's it's an essential part of the job to to be able to see something in a proposal that could be made bigger more relevant to publishers. So I really kind of enjoy when you when you have something there offer has talent. And there's an integrity to the proposal. Then that's really the stop point. You have to work creatively with a writer to develop that propose on a way that will appeal to publishers is pretty read something arrives fully formed. So rare. I don't think that's ever happened in my experience. It's. It's a creative process. In control of that. But your helping guide them hopefully, right direction..

You had absolutely no cultural reinforcement what so ever thinking about killing us all not at all, Peter. Thank you so much, Dr Peter Bracken, great work that he does since the dawn of time humans have developed, tools and technology to assist in the pursuit of our goals, large shifts and technology resulted in large shifts and social structures, how individuals both contribute to society and make a living the industrial revolution. For example. Brought large scale changes to our socio economic structures and the kinds of work that people did today technological advances are rapidly making it possible to automate much of the work. Currently carried out by people this applies to both blue collar jobs the robotics in the internet of things and white collar work through artificial intelligence seems to be changing the way we live. Let's check in with Lauren Weinstein, our expert on the internet. What's going to happen in the future Lorne with all this technology? Before I address that. I wanted to say one thing about the smartphone radiation story. Yes. That was back there. I wouldn't panic about about that yet. And the reason is I those studies the models that they use with the rats are not Representative of the way people use these phones, they're they're getting a lot more radiation. A different watch still rather use text than talk. Anyway. Some of these studies even claim, you know, if you're texting distance, you know, in your hand rather than against your head. It doesn't make that much of a difference. And that's the other part of us. It's hard for them to show what the mechanisms would be for this because we're talking about non ionizing radiation. And general knowledge says that not ionizing radiation does not cause cancer. We'll we'll see there'll be more and more studies. You don't have to throw out your smartphone yet. Where are we going where where are we going? Where are we headed with this knowledge? I don't claim to have an infallible crystal ball when your big predictions about about the future of technology, you tend their blind spots. I mean talking about smartphones think about classic science fiction written movies where are the smartphones in science fiction. They're missing it action. Nobody thought that was going to happen. There are some trends, we can feel fairly confident about are going to be important exactly how we don't know machine learning. Artificial intelligence robotics. You mentioned those bioengineering we've talked about those before Brady implants other kinds of body implants that can be everything from interfacing computers to the brain to helping paralyzed people. Walk. There's work now on the brain wave analysis that actually has started down the path of being able to tell what people dream and this one when I first saw this a few years ago. I was just amazed at it. And it's a very primitive. It has to do with matching up the patterns that you can see when someone's awake looking at particular things on the computers can recognize those patterns later when your sleeping, but you put all this together combine it with other technologies that we know are going to be important like virtual reality, and augmented reality, and you start to see the shape of of what we might be dealing with all of these technologies. Just like you go all the way back to stone knives. They can be used for good purposes. They could be used for bad purposes and for the whole gamut between in between the two. So it's never the tools that are that are doing the good things that are bad things. That's always the people who are using the tools that make that make those. Good point, Lauren.
