Biden Says 'Lockdowns' Not Needed to Curb Coronavirus Variant

"John Kennedy, well, let's start with Justin Trudeau, premiere of Canada. I'm a crime is actually in Canada. Not in the United States yet. Cut number 19. Obviously, we're watching very, very closely at the situation with el Macron. We know that even though Canada has very strong border measures now. We need vaccinations to come to Canada. We need pre departure tests. We do testing on arrival. There may be more we need to do, and we'll be looking at it very carefully. Are we going to ban more flights? Are we going to ban more many walked away? Because he doesn't know any more than you know other than Moderna CEO says we're screwed. Joe Biden, Dakota county, Minnesota went up there, and this is what he said cut number 20 from the president. As I told the American people yesterday, this new variant is a cause of concern, but not a cause to panic. On Thursday, I'll put forward a detailed strategy outline in how we've gone, we're going to fight this COVID this winter, not with shutdowns and lockdowns with more widespread vaccination. Boosters testing a much more. In the meantime. It sounds to me like deputy president Ron klain got the President Biden. And said, here's what we're going to do. It's what I'm doing. Urge everyone to get vaccinated because Delta is out there. And delta could kill you. We have about 850 deaths a day average right now in the United States. They're all Delta. And the vast majority of them are people who aren't vaccinated. You want to play poker with your life. I can't talk you out of it, but we're a long past having the government shut things down and closed schools because the cost of those are now well known and they're terrible.

Firm Tied to Hunter Biden Brokered $3.8B Deal for Cobalt Mines to Chinese Company

"Hunter Biden's firm helped Chinese company purchase rich cobalt mine in $3.8 billion deal. In investment firm that counts Hunter Biden among founder, its founders helped the Chinese company purchase one of the world's most lucrative cobalt mines from an American company. Biden established the firm, bohai harvest RST, equity investment fund management, with two other Americans and some Chinese partners in 2013. Hear that? Hunter Biden? Started a firm with Chinese partners in 2013. No, no, no, but hey, the real problem? Is moms and Grand Junction that show up at school board meetings? Who get their entire house searched by FBI agents? The American members controlled 30% of the Shanghai based operation and served on the board. I'm reading from Fox News dot com. The company notably completed a deal in 2016 that saw a Congo cobalt and copper mine transfer from an American company to a Chinese outfit. For the sum of $2.65 billion. Bhr served as a minority stakeholder to buy out around $1.1 billion of shares from London mining of Canada, who owned a portion of the Congo mine. Chris Clark, a lawyer for Biden, says he no longer holds any interest directly or indirectly in either VHR or scans. But Chinese business records reviews reviewed by Fox News in April 2021 showed that Hunter Biden continued to hold a 10% Chinese private equity firm stake in ball high harvest RST equity investment fund management through hunters, company.

No, I think he says if I were to work to him a little bit more, I could have gotten Canada too. I could have gotten Canada.

Astrophysicist Sarah Salviander Shares Her Story

"Sarah salvi and her welcome. Thank you so much. Am I pronouncing your name correctly? Yeah, you are. Right on. Okay. That's really my goal in these interviews. You're an astrophysicist. Not many people that I know of can can legitimately say yes, I am an astrophysicist. So anybody who's an astrophysicist, you want to say, how did that happen? But especially if it is a woman to whom I'm talking to, I'm all the more intrigued because as we know women tend to be underrepresented underrepresented in the sciences, at least so I've been told. So what is your story? Where did you grow up and how did you find your way into being an astrophysicist and then later on, we'll talk about God and black holes and all that amazing stuff. But tell us your story. Okay, yeah, I grew up in Canada. I'm actually an American, but my parents moved us up to Canada at a young age. They were atheist socialist kind of political activist types. They wanted us to grow up in a more secular atmosphere and so we were raising peace my brother and I. And at a young age, I became a space junkie. I'm going to credit Star Wars and Star Trek. This is the stuff that I grew up with. Just absolutely fell in love with space. And for a long time, I wanted to be an astronaut, but when I realized that actual space travel involved very uncomfortable conditions and wasn't at all like being on the starship enterprise, I kind of gave that up. You said I'd rather wait 500 years until they work out those kinks because I don't want to be cramped in a capsule, right? Yeah, so incredibly uncomfortable conditions not glamorous and exciting at all. Like you see in the movies. And so I decided that I wanted to explore space in a different way, which is through science. And so I became dedicated to the idea that I was going to become some kind of a space scientist, either an engineer, or a scientist, tried engineering first didn't really like it. And then majored in physics and absolutely fell in love with it. And I was lucky enough to get summer intern position at UC San Diego, working it for the center of astrophysics and space sciences.

Every year is that there's a banned books week or something. What is it called. Yes it banned books week. It's a week long promotion in the book. Trade that sponsored by the american library association the american booksellers association and several other organizations. It's the last week of september so begins. It begins next week. And it's a way to promote books that have been ostensibly banned. The the joke of it is that the books that are promoted year after year have not been banned in any meaningful sense and now the books that are in some real sense. Being banned are studiously ignored by ban. Books week policy in the book but hypocrisies two-mile a term. It's orwellian the books that are banned are not mentioned during banned books weeks and books that our peripheral band give me an example of what they say is banned so so yeah i mean obviously it depends on how you define your terms so if i if i describe a book if i tell you that a book has been banned. What does that mean to you. What's your first thought that it is no longer available to the public right. I think that's a reasonable definition. So if i'm living in soviet union in the you know nineteen eighty five. And i want to buy the gulag archipelago. Am i gonna find it kid. It's been banned right the government or somebody with authority to the power to do. It has made that book unavailable.

"Hey Terry here. All right, here is the latest announcement from Lexie live. And this one is specific to Canada, which is great. You may have heard of something called off Lexi conversations, Alexa conversations. And this is a very Advanced way that developers can design their skills to have more natural-sounding conversation with Lexi conversations. Basically is a deep learning based approach to dialogue management. And again, it enables the developers to create natural human like voice experience so you can change your mind on things. So, a good example is, you know, somebody's ordering a pizza and they change their mind in the middle of the order, you know, make that a large instead of a medium Lexi's able to respond to that. And there are so many other aspects to this, that would actually be a little bit too long to get into just in the short flash briefing. But the point of this particular flash briefing is to let you know that this technology Lexi conversations has Been expanded now to include all English locales, and of course that includes Canada. It wasn't available here previously. So this is very exciting. We are going to be seeing more and more skills that allow this natural conversation to have with Lexi. So I will keep you updated when I become aware of specific skills that incorporate this month, later technology of natural conversations, and I look forward to trying that out as I hope you will too. So I'll be in touch with you about those in the near future. All right. Hope you're having a great day. I'll talk to you tomorrow..

"Hello. Terry here. It's Monday. It's a big pig week. There's lots of events going on. We got the voice ten going on, sponsored by Amazon, Lexi, and Google Assistant. We've also got voice, lies happening, Thursday, and from more about that to come. But as I spoke about last week, as you know, Lexi live was Amazon's big event last week and they announced a whole bunch of new features. One of these, I am very intrigued by because this is a teacher that has been available in the United States for quite some time now. And now it is finally available here in Canada. This is called in skill purchasing. So what that means is that now developers that are creating skills, have the option of actually selling to Canadians through the skill additional options or features or other products through the skill. So essentially, I'll give you an example. A skill may have a series of sounds that you can listen to. And so a lot of those sounds are free but if you want the expanded, Sound pack or if you want sounds, for example, without any ads or commercials you have the option of through the skill, purchasing that Premium Edition of the skill and this is wonderful because it gives the consumer, the option of purchasing those, those pieces of content that are providing some added value. And for the developer's side, it's a way for them to monetize their skills and and turn that helps grow the whole ecosystem. If you will, when it comes to Amazon Echo, devices and Lexie. So yes, Amazon just announced that took International expansion of the in skilled purchasing is live and specifically. They said that they have pushed us out to India and Canada at this time.

Well, here's the thing apple podcasts support is now available in Canada for Lexi. So let me tell you how you do it. Okay. Basically, you gotta go into your settings on. Your. LEXI APP. So currently the way it is you're going to click on the more icon at the bottom when you see that you're GonNa Click. On settings then you're going to scroll down and you're going to see music on that then what you're GonNa do if you haven't already, you're going to click on link new service and you will see an option there for apple podcasts you'll see the option therefore apple music if that's something that you would like Once, you have done that you link the account and it is ready to go.

Insert the name of your favorite podcast on Apple podcasts or read them the name of the podcast on Apple podcasts seed you have to say on Apple podcasts unless you make it your default music player and you could choose to do that i. personally haven't because I would tend to use spotify as my default music player but that definitely is an option for you nevertheless I think this is pretty cool.

"Hey Terry here with your flash briefing for Monday. Hope you're off to a good start for your week as I promised a last week I've been diving into a little bit of the jobs that are available with Amazon particularly in Canada and there are a number of jobs particularly in Vancouver and Toronto that are currently available. And apart from yes you may be interested in applying for those jobs and by the way you can see those at Amazon dot jobs I was interested to see what kind of jobs are being posted because that may give us a little bit of a clue in terms of what features maybe seeing soon and one of the first jobs that came up on this list was. A development. Manager for Lexi Guard so you don't know guard is one of the features that is available in united. States. But it's not here in Canada. So what does that mean? Well, it does mean that Amazon obviously is trying to bring that to Canada but if they're looking to hire someone to work on it, it probably means that it's not quite ready yet for prime time here in Canada. So that's a little bit on the Lexi Guard. Some of the other jobs that I'm seeing posted include and these are all in Canada. Areas of applied scientists software development engineers, a quality assurance engineers, solutions, architects applied scientists. Language engineers a senior V voice user interface designer for Lexi shopping. So That's interesting. They WanNa Canadian to working on that lots and lots of development engineers I'm seeing. and. Finally, I'm seeing job called senior software development engineer for Lexi orchestration, and to be honest, I'm not sure what orchestration means when it comes to Levy. But in the job description, the job description, it says lexi or. Is situated at the center of all Lexi customer experiences whether they are traditional custer, customer initiated speech interactions, or the growing set of lexi initiated proactive scenarios such as routines and notifications very interesting anyway. So there's a little bit of insight into what's going on in Canada with the market. Again, if you're one of those jobs, definitely check it out, go to Amazon dot jobs and apply in.

It is more like we are sitting in a bar or a restaurant all sitting around a table have fun chatting with each other about voice technology and getting your questions answered, and you get to be part of the show. So I sincerely hope that you will join us there. And I'll see you again Wednesday. August twenty. Five..

"Four Wednesday and today I want to tell you about a report that came out from voice. Bought DOT AI. And if you don't know voiced by they're actually a really fantastic publication that covers all voice technology. Not Just Lexi but what they were reporting is that there's a new data that showing that these skills launched in two thousand nineteen were the lowest number When you compare it to any of the year dating back to two thousand and sixteen th the reason I want to highlight. This is because they also did publish some Canadian numbers and I just WanNa give you a sense of what. The numbers are in Canada in terms of the number of skills. That are in Canada right now. So this data is now about a year old but this is what they're reporting and they say that in January twenty nineteen the total count of lexi skills and Canada was twenty two thousand eight hundred and seventy three now about halfway through the year so in July of twenty nine thousand nine hundred the total count was was twenty five thousand one hundred and ten so if I do my math right. That means that we're looking at about an increase of give or take but roughly twenty five hundred skills between January of two thousand nineteen in July of two thousand nine hundred and they reported the number of skills that are out as of January twenty twenty and that number was twenty five thousand nine hundred fifty. So that's only about eight hundred or so increase in the number of skills in the last six months of two thousand nineteen why that is. We're not totally sure. It could be that. There was a reduction in the incentives to US developers who are launching US skills. And if there's a reduction in incentives then they may also be less likely to be producing skills for Canada as well so this may have an impact on the skills that are coming to Canada. It's hard to say it's interesting in its data. That'll be interesting to continue to follow and see if there's any uptake on this going forward. I still obviously think that Lexi is just gaining traction when it comes to users so we'll have to keep an eye on this interesting stuff. Hope you're having a great day and oh I just want to remind you I do have a contest going on right now for creating a logo for my personal brand. Dr Terry Fisher. If you WANNA see the details you can win some prizes And if you know anybody. That's a graphic designer them. Please share it you just go to Al a in Canada dot ca slash logo contests. Oh and one more thing. There's so much going on. It's hard to hard to keep track of everything today. I have. I am hosting with some other colleagues. A.

"Hey Dr Terry Fisher here and let's get right to the flash briefing for today. Here is a really really good piece of news for Canadians. I think this may help us to get a lot more skills in Canada than we currently have and this is a little bit of news that I want to let you know about. I was made aware that Amazon has just change their back end. When it comes to developers setting up their skills he C- previously when when a developer launched a skill they had to select which locale they wanted to be an and most of them of course have been set up to be launched in the United States. And what a lot of developers just actually didn't realize is that they have to opt in to have the skill launch and Canada. As well and I can tell you from personal experience. I've spoken with developers and they're quite shocked to hear that the skill is not available in Canada. Anyway the good news is that Amazon has just made a feature available in the back end when developers are creating their skills that allows them to just select a little check box and that will then push the skill to all the English speaking locales. Now that's good because it's going to help the developers to get these skills into Canada. More readily the downside. There's a downside is if you know. Developer wants to customize something for a country. It's GonNa be hard to do that. They won't be able to use this feature nevertheless. I think this is a good thing. It's going to help us Canadians. When a lot of the skills are not in Canada and now it really is as simple as a developer. Just choosing check box and the skill will come to Canada. So let's keep our fingers crossed that we see more and more of the skills that we want here. I think it's great. Good move by Amazon. And we'll see what happens right and hopefully we'll see more skills in Canada. Remember there's the contest going on right now to win echo show five. You can help me. Design LOGO FOR THE BRAND. Dr Terry Fisher. Check it out at AOL in Canada DOT CA slash local contest. Have a great talk to you tomorrow. BRIEF CAST DOT FM..

"Skills Hey there's terry here and I've got your flash briefing today one of the big requests that I often hear about is recipes here in Canada and I want to let you know about a particular skill clove chef and that she talked about this before and I've had the CEO cliff on the podcast. But I wanNa let you know. They're doing some incredible stuff. And if you're looking for a really comprehensive cooking skill than I would highly recommend recommend close. Jeff they've got a number of different features built into their their technology and they describe themselves as the Google maps of cooking. Which actually I think is pretty good. Good some of the things that they say so. They say that they can take written recipes and turn those into conversations so it can actually teach you and walk you through how to prepare recipes. They can also help you discover new recipes with interactive content based on your personalization of what you'd like what you don't like Cetera. They can provide shop -able recipes so that you can identify and create ingredient lists that then you can use and it actually can act as a meal tracker as well so pretty cool. I would highly recommend that you checkout clove shaft as the skill because I think you'll find very valuable and today also WanNa give a shout out to you George who left eight five star review for the flash briefing so George. Thank you very much. I really appreciate that. And he writes I on my list love. Terry's flash briefing. It's I on my newsletter every day. Clear concise and informative.

I can't even begin to tell you how many e mails listen. How many messages I have received from people like you asking me this question? When is apple music coming to Canada and the answer answer is it has finally arrived as I learned from a source in Amazon. This was never a technical issue. There were other factors involved but nevertheless the apple music service is now available to listen to on Amazon Lexi here in Canada and and so because this has been such a big feature in such a requested feature.
