US Struggles to Speed Kabul Airlift Despite Taliban, Chaos

"Hi Mike Rossi a reporting the U. S. is struggling to speed up the COBOL airlift U. S. officials say the pace of evacuations of Americans and Afghan allies at the Kabul airport is picking up as a chaotic we could draws to an end every report we see of someone unable to reach the airport is of concern state department spokesman Ned price said Thursday six thousand people had been you'll be cleared for evacuation a major increase over previous days United States military is undertaking a gargantuan airlift operation right now but with president Biden's August thirty first deadline for complete withdrawal of U. S. troops less than two weeks away it is unclear how many people are in need of evacuation some estimates of U. S. Afghan citizens and family range from eleven thousand to fifteen thousand tens of thousands of others may also be seeking an exit Mike Rossi Washington

Breaking Down Witness Immunities: Transactional vs. Use Immunity

"My first question is how common is it that someone gets a hundred percent immunity like rhonda got to with a person who is just as culpable legally. I mean according to the law. Am i wrong in that. If she takes him and delivers him and he commits a murder and then she helps him cover it up. All of that makes her justice. Cobol right under the law a no. You're not wrong. It's so rare that the federal system doesn't even allow it. It's so rare that since. I joined the county attorney's office. I was the defense attorney for six years i five and a half i never got a transactional immunity agreement from any prosecutor. The whole time. I was defense attorney. I've been a prosecutor since january of two thousand. So we're going on coming close to twenty one and a half years now. I've never given a transactional immunity agreement all the time. Defense attorneys asked for transaction community all the time and they know they're not gonna get it from but they're doing their job. That's i mean that's their job. Zealously represented advocate their client. So then we say let's have a serious conversation about a potential use immunity agreement. What does your client know. What can they give us. Why should we do it. Transactional immunity where somebody has given one hundred percent immunity from prosecution versus what's more common use. Immunity is is very rare comparatively speaking. So when you're talking about use immunity you're talking about. Is this useful information right like explain to me kind of drill down on what that means the use immunity. You're absolutely correct transactional. Immunity is means. You're not going to be prosecuted at all period for your involvement. In whatever the underlying crimes are you're giving testimony information about usability simply when a prosecutor determines they need to compel the information and testimony from individual that has it that has some degree of culpability. They can raise the fifth amendment and refused to cooperate and testify or give information so a prosecutor that gives them a use immunity agreement. Which simply means. We're going to sit down and talk to you. You're going to give us the information in a truthful accurate fashion. And if you do we will not and cannot use the information that you provide in that context and in that setting against you. We won't use what you tell us. And we won't make derivative use of what you tell us in other words we're not here to bamboozle you. If i give you a use immunity agreement a you come in and you tell us what you know we cannot use that against you to prosecute you personally we can use it against others third parties and then we cannot take what you have told us in that setting and go out and try to find evidence to substantiate a case against you if we get it in the natural course of things soviet.

"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on

"Variables dictates a lot about the language at large. Usually you have a handful of types for variable such as integer floating point numbers characters or strings of characters just to name a few common types in kabul. You get to define your own types which is actually really powerful. That's something that other languages do but now at the same level of flexibility is coble. And remember when you're defining a data type you're also defining its print format the cost is that you have to explicitly define each variables typing and format and you can only define that in the data division. So yeah you get this cool flexibility you get the power to make up your own variable types but at the same time this imposes limits on how you go about programming in something like al goal or see there are restrictions on what ten of types you can have. You only have a handful of different variable types but you can define these variables anywhere you want. It's a trade off to be shirt what we get from. All these factors is something. I didn't expect the data. Division is competent but difficult to us to make matters worse it bears little resemblance to the rest of cobo. You see the data and procedure divisions were designed by different subcommittees..

"The data division is where files that are formats and variables are all defined. At least for me. This is the most mind-bending lee weird part of the nineteen sixty specification kabul syntax. Whatever division you're dealing with is almost entirely composed of words but describing data needs to be more exacting so the data division has this mix of verbose english explanations with numbers and very coble specific abbreviations. Let's say you're describing an input file. That's a really common task you. I have to define a file description. Give it a name like fd payroll file. Once you have a descriptors you can start writing. Its layout as a tree like hierarchy. This is done using so called level numbers. Each line that describes the file has an american prefix that defines where it is in the hierarchy. Oh one means it's at the root of the structure to means it's below the root and so on you also have to define the type for each field. Now i guess you could say cobo is the most strictly type language out there. Sort of the whole typing system is something totally different from anything i've ever experienced. This is accomplished using the picture. Clause describes pictures function as quote to show a detailed picture of the field structure and permit editing representations. What exactly does that mean like. I get it to us to define format but that tells me so little. Why is it used to to picture a field. The name picture comes from. Ibm's com tram but it really just sounds like they're using that name as a joke at least doesn't sound formal enough for a formal language specification..

"She would only serve as a quote advisor to the executive committee so her direct involvement with the fledgling cb l. in here so let's look at the short range committee. It was tasked with examining existing options and possibly making a recommendation for a compromise language. They were scheduled to report back to the main body in early september. That gave them four months to complete their task. The expectation was some kind of short term solution hints the name short range maybe choosing a language for use until the intermediate and long range committees could sort something out. That was better. Oh but that wasn't what happened. Salmon gives a blow by blow account of the committee minutes. But it's a little mind numbing to actually read through. The short range. Group broke up into at least three subcommittees from their pieces of a new language. Started to be developed. The best part for account or at least what i found the most resonant was that some people felt the new language had gone too far and honestly. That's a pretty reasonable view from everything. I've read after four months. The short range committee returned to give their recommendations what they turned in was a very early draft specification for coble now. Obviously this was outside the committee's original scope. This was known and discussed in the committee. The chair was recorded as responding with quote. I also want to point out in the constitutional convention. If they had not taken this attitude we would not have a constitution in quote now. I don't know if that sounded more appropriate in context salmon just polls that single line into her writing but it should be clear that were pretty far off the rails when a business programming language is compared to the us constitution. That might be a bad sign now. Sandwich account also gives us detailed examples of what designed by committee really means the core of cobol was based off flow matic and similar languages so we see the same rough designed for him one of the subcommittees that broke off..

"Just like you have different tools for different jobs. A hammer is best for driving a nail. But you wouldn't want to use it to cut a board as hopper. Put it in an acm keynote speech quote working with the people that i had worked with in data processing. I found that very few of them were symbol oriented. Very fewer mathematically trained. They were business trained and they were wording inflators reported than mathematics people in quote to a programmer someone who is trained to be symbol oriented language without symbols. Just doesn't look right. A language without native math functions just seems useless but hopper envisioned flow matic as a tool for a totally different niche. This decision worked out. well soon. After the first compilers were operational univac began selling foam attic to customers crucially. They actually studied how it was being used in the field for this. We can turn to a nineteen sixty paper. Written by alan taylor. One of the programmers on the flow. Matic project this text the flow matic and mathematics. Automatic programming system explains the benefits of these new english. Language is really well. Specifics are a little vague. Since taylor's working off client data and clients tend to be a little cagey about vendors. Releasing details that aside. Here's a particularly interesting example of flow matic at work quote. One large industrial organization started training some fifteen programmers a year instead of being trained in machine code as had always been done previously. These were given a short machine code. Course and a thorough two weeks training in flow matic taylor continues to date..

"Just imagine putting that in your resume expert at flow matic anyway flow matic was distinct in that it was designed for people who would traditionally not be programming a computer manuals and articles on flow. Matic explain that it was meant for basically anyone in a business so was math matic but flow. Matic it's emphasized. More one charmingly period manual boasts that flow matic can help quote break the communications barrier between programming and management groups. What we're starting to see is that hopper had a very different view of digital egalitarianism for a competing and more widely held view look no further than the contemporary fortran. One of the languages major design goals was to find a way for more scientists and engineers to use computers. Work was also done throughout the project to ensure it would be useful for existing programmers. You know people who were slaving away with machine code. If you read very long about four tran you'll find a lot of details about the acrobatics. The team went through to make sure the language produced fast programs that was partly to please existing programmers. We can easily say the. Fortran was aimed at making computing mar accessible. But it was very closed off nitesh. It was aimed at those that were already in the hard sciences. People who were already math freaks people who liked symbols when you get down to it. Programming is just a distant cousin of the scientific method hopper saw things in a different way and we can observe that really clearly in the whole flow. Matic mathematics split..

"And i always give up pretty quickly. There's something unnatural about it at least for me as a trained programmer. The language just plain looks and acts differently than i expect. Because of that. I've been putting off talking about coble. I just wanted to think of it as this fluke in hoppers portfolio. And leave it at bat. I finally decided to look into the matter. You know like a good brave hearted academic should. And i'm really glad i did in reality. Grace hopper had a lot less to do with the bizarre language than a lotta people think at least hopper didn't directly create cobo herself as with all aspects of computer history. The story gets really complicated. And there's a lot of interconnecting pieces. This episode will be untangling this mess a little bit examining cobo and finding out why grace hopper is so often associated with the language. Along the way we'll see why kabul is such a frustrating language the dangers of designed by committee and try to figure out why cobos remained such an important piece of technology to kick things off. We need to talk some more about hopper. Like i said she didn't create cobo per se but her work greatly influenced the language and also as it turns out the roots of coble lie really close to the roots of programming languages. In general it all goes back to automatic programming and the first compilers now automatic programming or automatic. Coding is an antiquated term. Used to describe pro gaming in really anything but assembly language or machine code. Automatic programming languages were technically high level languages. That's really the closest we have nowadays..

"It's something of a fun. Pastime for programmers to dunk on old programming languages. I think some of that is certainly justified. Technology is always moving forward in. Some languages are just left in the dust. You aren't really gonna be writing a web server in basic or of fancy graphics intensive game in fortran but that's not to say that these old languages don't have their own place even if that place is just on a podcast about computer history. Four and is an example of downright archaic language. That still has a very well defined niche the language is used for a lot of supercomputers it was built for doing math quickly and efficiently and four has managed to keep those core principles intact for decades. I've even used for ten myself. And i can personally attest that there's just some jobs. It does better than any other language there. Then we have kobo. Probably up there as one of the most easy languages to make fun of. It's become something of a joke amongst programmers. Couple is really old. it was first developed in the very late. Nineteen and fifty s and early nineteen sixties. It just looks plain different from every other programming language. According to some program in cobol can even.

"Law and order for draconian drug laws. All these things and Trump stepped in and it all fell apart. Um, but he's gone now. That's fair, but in his place or people like representative Marjorie Taylor green now she has been out and she's been I tell you these things for a couple reasons. And let me ask the question again before I finished the story. Well, let me finish the story first, and I'll get to the question, right? So she she came out and said, um, her latest comments about Covid. Are getting people now to go to, um Kevin McCarthy Minority leader and say You've got to do something about this. You guys got to get rid of this woman. And in a threaded message on Twitter from America to the swamp. She has declared that no one cares about the transmissible delta variant of Covid 19. She goes, all voters are over Covid. And this again is just right from the Q and on conspiracy playbook. She claimed that the 11,000 new infections um recorded daily aren't true that their lie There, she says. Americans are over Covid, and there's no amount of fear based screaming from the media that will ever force Americans to shut down again. Force mass and vaccines will cause them to lose big. All voters are over Covid. Um And then she's now saying Fox News is part of the fake news media. And told people who don't like America or flag. Get the hell out of our great country. Where have I heard that before? And, um And go live in some s whole socialist or communist country, she said. The actual word This is a woman who previously like in house mask mandates to the Holocaust. Remember that? And praised people who refused to receive the vaccine. Of course, you know, we know the truth here. So the question The question is when you look at people like her With this blatant and dangerous information. Um First of all she I mean, you know, Dorsey should throw her off Twitter. And again, you know, this is an extension of of what Trump did. Trump would lie. And then when somebody offered proof he would tell a new lie. And when somebody offered proof, he would tell a new lie. He never backtrack to try to defend them. He would just say it was fake news. Whatever you you, you gave, you know forward to refute it. There is a danger There's there is a ether in the air. And I don't know who's propagating it. I mean, Trump. Is still The leader of the Republican Party. But my question for you is this is which one of these people is the greatest danger. In America today who was the most dangerous person in America not named Trump. Is Mitch McConnell. Is it? Ted Cruz? Is it? Marco Rubio just for his. I mean, these are people that should have stood up to Trump. Um is it Tom Cotton? Who don't who was part of the Trump? COBOL. Is it? Josh Hawley, is it? Kevin McCarthy is a tailor. Green is alarmed. Poupard. You know the ship from Wyoming that she's crazy. I don't know. I really don't know. I mean, there are you know when Trump had this recent event down in Sarasota These Cuban influencers received press credentials to the Trump rally. Let me say that again. He gave press credentials to the people. Who believe the Democrats kill babies and drink their blood. Um But who is the danger? Is that these Republicans I just mentioned Was it lazy Democrats? Are we? The problem? I mean, I'm not even a Democrat. I vote Democrat most of time. But I registered as an independent. Is there. I mean, Is it? Can you say the American people? Aren't up for this that we just that that's why Trump will succeed again. Because we don't know how to do it. Remember, Um you know, I don't mean this in a violent rhetoric, either. But the scene from the Untouchables where Sean Connery says Kevin Costner says, as if they put one of years in the hospital, you put one of theirs in the morgue. You have to be ready. To again they're going. They're talking about Linda Ellis now saying August 13th is the day Q And on is publishing it everywhere. They're expecting Trump and and and little more than a month. To be, um, put back into the White House. There are people that will go to violent ends at that. I'm going to make the case that the most dangerous person in America is a lazy Democrat. 80 88 towns go to Charles in Menlo Park. What do you think, Charles? Right out of my mouth was exactly what I was going to say. I really think that you know Democrats. They don't know how to box I mean, And they led Republicans just run rough shot. I don't know what they're afraid of. They're not going to be respected. If they're weak, the one thing all Americans do not respect. His weakness, right? We know that. I mean, look at when Kerry cry. I mean, Kerry, you know was swift boated. Think about when must Muskie cried? Yeah. All you have is weakness doesn't let everybody eyes two week he's flip flopped. There we go Crazy. Remember. Remember when Obama cried after remember when Obama cried after Sandy Hook? I remember Hannity. I don't remember, right. Oh, yeah, he was doing. He was at a press conference, and then he stopped to wipe his eyes. And they and they, of course and and people like Hannity mocked him. You're right. But what do we do? You know, that's a question. I mean that quite every day. I think we have to shine the light. I think they should say the madness has got to stop every day. Like every Democrat. Should say it at some point whenever they speak, like they're still telling the big lie there's still tell. I mean, just pointed out, pointed out, pointed out as much as Trump does. And and just really like, bring it out in the open, and I don't think we're going to run away. It's not going away as you can see, right. He's not going away. I agree. Thank you. The car. Pellegrin scares the crap out of me. Did you hear the latest hear what she said today, she says l g b T Q. People need to shut up about what you like to do in the bedroom. She says that gays need to stop flaunting their trip preference. Trans girls or biological men and people that don't like the flag need to get the hell out of America. This, you know again, and she's wearing a mask on that says free speech. I love it. This. That's an old picture. But in this in this piece on Raw story. Um, thanks for the call. Appreciated, Charles. It is, you know, we do live in a in a weird, weird time right now, Um I don't know. I don't know what the answer is here. But there is There is a danger that on August 13th that people could get hurt. They will be in recess in Washington so they won't be on Capitol Hill. And will that make it easier for them to do this? I don't know what they plan on doing. Uh, if I were Biden Would not leave the White House that day. I would I would stay there again. You talk about weakness. Go to Gary in Daly City. Um I like Gary Gary, who was who in your mind is the most dangerous person in America not named Trump. I'll answer question once we know all the characters all above Democrats Fire with plastic Nice. Mark Zuckerberg, Mark Zuckerberg's to hate or hate. Period. He pulls up stakes once Trump's out of office. And he says, Oh, yeah, I didn't really mean all this child every you name it upon Zuckerberg site. It is there. I think, you know, I don't need to go on through the details with Children. We get everything possible, but Mark Zuckerberg's of profiteer of a hate I agree. Uh, he spreads it worldwide. He spreads it everywhere. Then he says, Oh, not me. Not me. Not me when they finally Trump's out of office, not me, but he's running his cast register to billions. You know what guys? The guys worth tens of billions of dollars. Why would he do that? He's a sick son of a bitch. Excuse my language. He has to be. Yes, There's something wrong with him. The two here's a need to do this. I'm not on that site. I don't care if people know where I wanted to get a cup of coffee, but you go on it. And you see the hate that is monitored in those sites, and we're only in the second inning here.

Uh, I would say, each one of your listeners right now is probably shaking, ever heads and going None. No, thank you. I don't want any parts of that. Neither the why neither do you. I'm sure it Z or transferring What The thing that we need with the Chinese in the India and India. Um, the people African? No. You need reliable, abundant and affordable energy, and none of those three words can be applied to wind or solar renewables. Uh, it's it's possible fuels. From coal, natural natural gas and oil that gets us that reliable, abundant and affordable. Those three words and that's that's the key and China's charging forward. And then in India are charging for with mining. Mork whole building, more coal fired power plants and in particular India. I've been there. I I spoke there a shale gas conference here a few years ago. Um I don't want to go back the way I want it, Zbig. Well, I'm not going to it, but it's India. If you look at Prime Minister Moti, I think he's a good man. I think he is. He is. Really the interest of his people, um, at heart and to do that he wants to West He's got a couple billion. I think, too 1.7. But I'm not sure what it is. It's around that one billion people. That's a lot a lot. And there's about 600 Million of those people were living in and destitute, generational poverty. He wants to lift those people up out of this generational poverty. And he knows to do that. Repeat those three words abundant, affordable, reliable energy, and they only see the only way that he can get it in India is with Cole. On because it really doesn't work very well. India's is not very well suited for for wind or solar because of the monsoon season. I was there. During the monsoon season. Obviously, if it rains all day long, you're not gonna make my solar energy and the wind blows pretty hard and when once you get that high Not only does win, not work when, when the wind isn't blowing, But the wind is so windows when turban some work when there's too much wind. S O. So those two the renewables don't work very well in India because of the monsoon season. Late Thomas Gold came up with the avionics oil theory where he postulated that this planet has lots of oil..

Tesla Q2-20 Earnings Report

"Everybody. Round our here and today we are continuing our discussion. On TUSLA's second quarter earnings report yesterday we went through a lot of the financials and tassels announcement about gigafactory Texas today I wanna go through more of the takeaways from Tesla's conference. Call The stock on the day to day. Probably the reaction everyone was hoping for from the market, but finished down five percent. Percent to one thousand five hundred thirteen dollars, seven cents that did compared to the Nasdaq, though with a rough day as well down two point three percent, and if we look at the charts, the direction of moves were pretty similar with Tesla's movement, just being amplified from the macro environment given the rising expectations heading into earnings, which as we discussed the whisper number. Number that was posted by barons was for a positive fifty cents per share, which of course ended up being the number I don't think it's too surprising to see Tesla not deviate to the upside from the macro environment here, especially given the outsized impact that regulatory credit sales had on that earnings number, but as we talked about yesterday, even stripping out those regulatory. Regulatory Credit Sales I'm still very happy with the financial results Tesla Post. oftentimes it just takes a while for the markets. Really figure out what it wants to do. For example after the pretty good results from key one dull stock was down about twelve percent two days afterwards, but two months afterward was up forty percent and tussles performance today, not really all that. That bad compared to other stocks apple, for example with sound four and a half percent Amazon down three and a half percent all right that being said, let's go through some of the main takeaways from the earnings call I want to start off here with batteries autonomy, and then I think the third leg of the triangle manufacturing which yellen reiterated on this call. Call thinks will be the long term sustainable advantage of Tesla. We talked a little bit about this yesterday, but I think one of the most interesting points that yuan made on batteries was on lithium, iron, phosphate, versus Nick Manganese Cobalt as we've talked about in the past lithium iron phosphate is energy dense as Nicomedes, cobol but Tesla has made such progress in their. Their powertrain efficiency and in areas like heating, ventilating and air conditioning that they are now able to use lithium iron phosphate in their vehicles and still get an acceptable range. This is important for a few reasons I think. The primary reason is because as Tusla continues to try to ramp very aggressively. They obviously need a lot of batteries. Yulon did address their constraints. Constraints on the colony said pretty much at any given point in time there's going to be some constraint within the battery supply chain, and whenever that constraint is, that's going to be the thing that determines the rate of growth, so if Tesla can now use two different technologies to different cathode chemistries that allow them to use different raw materials that diversity in supply. Supply chain or the addition of another chemistry supply chain should really help them grow more quickly at Nealon was very complimentary of the supply chains that exist in China and China is very heavily focused on lithium iron phosphate. Additionally, my understanding of the raw materials is that they should be cheaper for lithium iron phosphate, though sometimes those equations are not simple as they seem. Seem because he need to factor in things like using more cells of with your mind, phosphate to get the same energy that you could get from fewer cells of nickel, manganese cobalt, for example regardless if you are ramping production aggressively and plan to continue that for a long time, that diversity of resources is really important. You don't WanNa put all the pressure on. On one resource if they're resources-scarce, obviously that would cause the price to rise, and as we heard you on the call yesterday. Tesla really really needs nickel utilizing with your mind, phosphate reduces that need a little bit still. There are cases where Tesla's going to need that. Higher Energy density associated with nickel manganese cobalt. You mentioned that that would be the case for. For vehicles like the semi and the roadster, while we're on the semi here, I'll just round out some of the comments on that. Unfortunately, we didn't get any information on a production rate target for the semi, and despite that leaked email from Elon saying it was time to bring the semis volume production, tesla did reiterate and the update letter that deliveries for the. The semi will start in two thousand twenty one. They stated that again on the call, and also said as they have said in the past that the first deliveries of the Tesla semi will be to Tesla itself for essentially more extensive long-term validation, though they did add that some long-term loyal customers will also get some Tesla. Semis early on other points on the. The semi Jerome I believe and Ilana emphasized that they were able to think about ramping the semi now because of some reductions and battery constraints that they are anticipating a lot of that is the lithium iron phosphate stuff that we talked about? But they did tease things that they have planned for Battery Day. Yuan also said that they continue to expect to expand. Expand battery supply with others I think he specifically mentioned Panasonic LG and say l., but then also said that there will be more on that subject on battery. Day implying that do for the vertical integration in the battery supply chain, or at least that was my take. Oh, and also last thought on the semi. It's always fun to hear. Jerome talk about it. It, he's clearly very excited to get rolling and he mentioned. There's a lot of new things that they've integrated in the semi which are pretty impressive, so lots look forward to. They're all right next up I. WanNa, talk about autonomy. We've heard Ilan talk about a lot of these things, but we did get a little bit more context or details on autonomy in. The specifically Ilan talked about how he has been testing the newest update of autopilot, which of course is the core rewrite version, which he essentially described as the difference between looking at a picture and going to surround video, explaining that today autopilot essentially functions in two and a half dimensions, the Tutti being looking at a picture, and then the half dimension, being what he described as a harsh correlation with time, but not really a good. Good one and then described the core rewrite as being four dimensional so three dimensional visual space with the fourth dimension, being a smooth understanding of time. You noted that it's really difficult to convey better. A forty system works you on mentioned that he has of course been testing the core rewrite in his vehicle, and that it really is profoundly better than people realize saying quote really profoundly better. It's like amazing and quote and then. Then it's getting close to being able to take him from home to work without any interventions despite going through intersections of course and things like construction zones whatever the case may be,

"Ninety six okay seven oh three right now doctor calls going to be on the show yeah seven forty five right after we were done around one of the bombers Dr Michael COBOL talk about you know your questions you can ask him questions about covert nineteen about the about the things we should be in a green situation yeah I will I'm gonna predict he'll save kind of what I was saying that's that's my prediction but we'll see because it's just a and I want to get back into it it's just too difficult but I want to talk about covert nineteen right now because yesterday somebody aggressively knocked on my door bam bam bam that's the place to come out was it that it was that kind of a knock it was really yeah it was and I got out and there were two people standing on my porch a young man and a young woman wearing masks and they were both festooned with university of Utah clothing logos okay and they said hi we're from Utah helped an economic recovery outreach or whatever it was and on behalf of the university of Utah and we're we're we want to do a survey about corona virus with the people in the in the area and I said well okay what would that entail a so we just need to answer a few questions and I said can I do it online that would be preferable and they said oh yeah you can there's a code will have to give you and it will give you the and then they started the shows the the man was doing most of the talking and the young woman was fumbling around for stuff and I don't know where that came in and I said you know and I said what how long will it take to do the survey an inmate said just just about ten minutes and I said okay look you can't find the code whatever let me go get a mask and all come out and sit on the porch and and will do the survey okay so so I go out on the porch and I do it in and it's just you know they're asking you how often have you been out of the house when have you been out of the house do you have if you had any symptoms of coronavirus you know what who have you who who else lives here all of this kind of stuff you know just general they're trying to pin down entry and track the covert nineteen and and then and they said if you do this you you get a will give you an antibody test you get to go have an antibody test which I think is part of the reason they're doing it they want to increase the database of of of the testing like that okay and I said okay that's great we we did all the questions and everything and then they said is there anybody else here that would like to do and I said well I'll check with my wife and she said yeah shop okay so she put on a mask and and I thought this is all great and I saw it but true sh certainly we should have done been able to do this online and my wife after this was all over and then my son and daughter both did it as well they both did did the interview but then after it was all over my wife said you know this this should have been a surprise we got this letter in the mail a couple of days ago and it says your household has been selected to participate in an important effort to test for covert nineteen in your community through a program designed by the university of Utah in collaboration with the Utah department of health there's a website you can go to and here's an access code right here on this paper to take the survey online but because I didn't open the mail because it look like yeah I don't know if I would open them you know just look like I don't remember the envelope exactly but it just looks like great some more information about covert nineteen I don't need that or you know just wasn't so I think because I didn't respond when did this come from a few couple of days ago because I didn't respond that's why they came by the house just to see if you know and I mean they were not gonna gonna force me to do it but yeah there it is so now I have this piece of paper right here that says all four of us can go to go to the Mormon ward up in the avenues and get a blood test for the antibodies and the way that works I guess I didn't my wife found this out she said we don't even have to get out of the car you just stick your arm out you just stick your arm out that out the window and they'll they'll take a sample take your blood yeah and so I I thought you know and I thought well it's a good thing to do it's just it's the testing is valuable and I don't think any of us will although my you know my son has been out of the house most of more than any of us and leaning on track numbers of the public so I don't know he could have it just be interesting to know I think some people have have the antibodies but they they have had no symptoms of of covert nineteen and that's valuable information will give you some some peace of mind if it came back that you have that would you move more freely about I don't think so no no I don't think so because I don't think it's been proved that I don't think there's been enough study or it hasn't been proved that it gives you any really give you any immunity then what is the benefit of knowing just out of curiosity well I think it's it's beneficial for of the whole the whole database of know how far it's yeah I don't I don't think it's I don't think it's a huge benefit for me to know but I think it's it it's bad it's beneficial for the overall statistics of of this well I show how widespread it is tell him really just a finger **** because what they do J. at all it is yeah that's yeah they don't have to do a syringe or anything like that because we have a texture here says it's just a finger **** I had it last week and came back positive positive for antibodies are positive for covert yeah they testing for COPD or just the antibodies well it has to be this wall does loads a swamp right well then I will have Russians for doctor callable yeah you have to instructor could cobble but I would think that I would think that a blood test would show both no we would show whether you know only let's check it later and will ask the doctor and I will say this though you said earlier that you were fatigued and you know that's a symptom well then we all fit together who are all I've been fatigued for three months by this that it was a at the the two people from the university of Utah by the way the the guy as he was asking me all the questions continually fiddled with his mask like what kind of questions did they ask but it just you know no I mean is it where it where if you ban where you shop yeah sure hours at that yeah yeah that's what I said at the beginning that they ask you just general questions about where where you've been how often you've been out what do you do what kind of you know but my daughter who keep track they didn't say where were you last Tuesday they didn't do that specific room no no not that specific it was how all it I think it was like how often have you been out of the house in the last thirty days maybe and how often do you go out of the house I said I said maybe twice a week I've gone out into pulp into the public maybe twice a week I go out every other week once yeah that's about it I think it probably just and anyway I have as many people coming in and out of your house Curie I yeah I got nobody we have more people that live here and go in and out of him yeah I see okay here's here's the person finger **** came back positive positive for anybody's then I had to pull into the lame of shame to wait and fill out my CDC form they suggested going to get tested for the actual virus if I thought I might still have it but I'm pretty sure I had it in January I'll okay and I don't know well again we'll ask Dr callable I don't know if they're taking blood from people who have the antibody for treatment purposes for other people another class that they would take yeah yeah but I don't know if there if you if you yeah if you have the antibodies they would take plasma but I don't know I think there's some people that have had active virus I don't think it's just you tested positive there you have antibodies well let's not speculate let's pop yeah come looking he's coming up in about a half hour from now so if you have questions and rather than speculate.

Unemployment programs can’t handle signups because … COBOL?

Unemployment programs can’t handle signups because … COBOL?

"New Jersey's governor recently went on TV asking for volunteers who know Cobo a more than sixty year old computer programming language. That's because the state's unemployment benefits system runs on a decades old mainframe. They can't keep up with the volume of requests for financial. Help and New Jersey isn't alone. Several states not to mention lots of financial institutions are all at the mercy of these very old systems running on a programming language. That isn't even taught in schools anymore. Joseph Steinberg is a cyber security consultant and author of the book cybersecurity for Dummies. Well first of all there are many financial institutions that use mainframes with Cobo for back in processing of transactions and batch processing. I think they probably have things in a lot. Better shape because they have the resources in house. In some cases they've replaced the systems at great expense over recent years in some cases. They're doing it now. And in some cases they've made the decisions to actually people to be able to support these systems going forward but when it comes to government and I would say probably even worse the state governments and then in the federal you have many systems that seem to hang around for a very long time one of the questions that I posed in the last week is simply if God forbid. This pandemic continued for several more months and all Americans had to vote in the presidential election. Remotely do all fifty states actually have computer systems that could accommodate that volume of ballots going out and in to be counted processed secure fashion in in any reasonable timeframe. And I'm afraid of what the answer to that question might be. We simply have a lot of legacy systems involved in various state processes and they are not meant they were never designed to accommodate. You know mass loads that could suddenly happen now And it's a lot harder to skill. These legacy systems newer technology scale much. Better and I'm afraid of what's out there at the state level And I'm sure there's some in federal government but you know after this pandemic is over. It's really going to be time to take a serious look at a lot of these older systems and evaluate whether they really are reliable only because we haven't had to make changes or they're really reliable and I think in many cases will find that it's the former right. I mean it seems like this is sort of an invisible infrastructure problem in America. That in some ways is as expensive and difficult to fix as roads and bridges. It's as expensive and perhaps in some ways more dangerous because you don't notice it until the problem happens right. You have people who desperately need money because there were suddenly ended there placed unemployment claiming they can get processed that can be dangerous. People could be low on food and other supplies can easily obtain them now. Either and I think that's precisely the issue with these older systems often. We assume that they're reliable until it's too late and the problem has hit and at that point you know you've gotTA tactical problem. How do we process these on unemployment claims and a strategic problem? How do we make sure this never happens again in the future? You're saying that even if we were able to bring a lot of programmers out of retirement that these systems simply may not ever be able to handle the load that is being put on them now. It may be possible to scale them up with improved hardware but that's going to be very expensive number one and they don't skill as simply as more modern systems. Do so you know the fact that you're hiring. Programmers out of retirement in people don't live forever. You're not gonNA have an endless supply of programmers who programmed in the seventies in the workforce. And I'm not saying that. These systems aren't reliable. They may be very reliable for what they do. Now but we have to accept the fact that systems may need to be changed and may need to scale up suddenly and we may not be able to do it with the existing technology and human resources and I have been at companies that re platform and it is hard and it's really expensive. And what does that look? Like at a sort of state and national level. What kind of investment in terms of technology and money with that take The thing to keep in mind. There's also political problem with things like this. You know if you're a state elected official and you have to budget a large amount of money for replacing a system no user of that system initially benefits from it so you need to have the political Will which I think after this. We will to invest the money before problems happened understanding that you're investing for the future. We should have our infrastructure. Set up that if there is an emergency in which people are dying. The governor should be focused on people not on technical glitches unemployment system

How to Be Seen and Heard in a Noisy Marketplace

"I'm absolutely honored to welcome. Can you back to the show. So thank you for being this week's guest expert and mental. Susan thank you so much for having me back I have returned triumphantly certainly do the show and I am excited to deliver some modicum of wisdom to the audience. Excellent I'm going to tap into that with day. We'll see the time will tell. It's a new decade. The noise in the marketplace couldn't allow down what Arou- authors going to have to do to be heard and seen in this incredibly noisy marketplace one of the things I've been thinking gene about increasingly each time I publish a book is who really is my reader. I talked to my agent once and he told me that one of the problems with Nonfiction Authors Business Book Authors etc is that they think that everybody who is in business or everybody who has ever run a business is their target audience for the book and that's just simply too broad. Let me phrase it this way. Somebody asked me the other day. Should they start a podcast and I said yes but only under her this condition. If for some people your podcast is their favorite podcast in the whole world. Then yes you should should start podcast if you cannot start a podcast that is the civic and relevant enough so that it is somebody's favorite podcast in the whole world than you should not start a podcast because it will not succeed seed and I think books are largely the same now of that you have to understand not for whom the book is potentially relevant but for whom is this book. Ideally relevant for whom is this going to be the best and most interesting and most insightful and most helpful book they've ever read and the more you can understand exactly Jackley who that audience is the better you can break through the enormous. Clutter that we all face absolutely. I couldn't agree with you more. Because that's one thing when authors come come to me Jay and one of the first questions and I've said this over and over again in many episodes and that is who is your target audience begins because as you rightly say people think that the book is much more universal than it actually really is. They've got to start some way to throw that stone into the pond and the ripples flow out that leads me into who you'll latest book which is talk triggers on this. You've written one that I don't know if you talk to this. What exactly exactly are two triggers? Talk triggers are operational choices that you make in your business or in your career or your life that are designed to create conversation. A talk trigger is from a shorthand standpoint. A word of mouth generator. It is is something that you do that your customers or your audience notices and then feels compelled to share with their friends and colleagues online nine or offline the key to understand this however Susan. Is that a talk. Trigger is almost never rooted in quality because we as human human beings are wired to discuss things that are different and ignore things. That are the same. If you're a restaurant for example people stay well. mytalk talk trigger is that we have really good food. It's like no. It's not because all restaurants have adequate food otherwise they wouldn't still be a restaurant and many many restaurants have exceptional national food. The quality of your food has to be so stratospheric high for that to be the word of Mouth Story About Your restaurant that you can almost never get the instead you have to do. Use something different in your organization in Your Business that people notice a talk about so for me on stage as a public speaker. I only wear plaid sued. You have a whole litany of glad suits and that is my calling card. That is the talk trigger but the Best Hawk triggers our experiences and not just a bullet point so the way we do that. Susan if you know the story is when somebody books made it to give a keynote presentation. The meeting planner about seven days before the event gets access. We sent the link to a special website. You all can go right now if you want. It's dressed. Jay Baer Dot com dress. Jay Baer Dot Com and it has on that special website pictures of all the suits. What's that I own? And the meeting planners select switch suit they would like me to wear to their event and then it goes on my calendar so I know what to bring to the event and meeting planners talk about about this all the time they tell the audiences about it when they introduced me they tell each other about it. It is the differentiator at people talk about. They don't say Jay's is a good speaker because they expected me to be a good speaker what they didn't expect. Was this other thing in all talk. Triggers by definition are things that the audience or your your customers or your readers. Don't expect for you. I see your plaid suits as being your brand would. Do you agree with that. Is it your brand in that sense. Even though as you said which I love the meeting planet can choose what you wear. I'm not short that I would want people to choose but I won't. That's why everybody has to have their own version of a talk trigger so to me. I hope the brand is helping people build their businesses in in on conventional ways. That perhaps they haven't thought of before word of mouth is one of them. Customer Service is one of them digital marketing is one of them. So that's what we're trying to shoot for. I would say the plaid suits suits is a brand attribute that the reason it becomes a talk trigger is because we turned it into experience. People noticed it but they didn't talk about it until we built the website and then allowed allowed the meeting planners to have a handed. Then it became truly talkable even example. A restaurant there's a restaurant in Sacramento California called skips kitchen very simple restaurants counter service mostly hamburgers good burgers like by all measure good hamburgers but when skip started the business he and his wife ten years ago they they really stretched financially to get this business open. They're down to their last nickel and they certainly couldn't spend money on on advertising and marketing. What how are we going to make this go without any any sort of advertising budget? And he said well. Let's just do something that people haven't seen before so they created this system where you order the menu board. You Wanna I wanNA Patti. Melton an running rings in a chocolate shake and then your food's ready they bring it out to your table. We all have been to restaurants like that. There's nothing noteworthy about the premise. However after you order but before you pay the person at the counter pulls out a deck of playing cards and fans out face down on the counter in front of you it looks you dead in the eye and says and you select a card and if you get a joker your entire meal meal is free whether you've ordered for just yourself an entire high school baseball team now on average about four people today win this game and when they win they go crazy? They're telling their friends. They're putting insult fees on the Internet. They're put reviews on Google and YELP and tripadvisor to this day. There is a line to get in.

Voice Technology Applications That Are Not Alexa and Friends With Jeff Adams CEO of Cobalt

"What's next Invoice Technology Jeff Adams welcome back to the voice by podcast in drink to be here Brad. Thank you for inviting me well. It was great to actually see you in Newark the first first time we've talked a number of times. I've had you on the podcast in the past and we we've done an interview two years ago but we'd never actually better person. We'd never been in the same room together. It was really nice in Newark to do that. I know I verify finally that you were not just an A. I bought the other end but yes some people think there must be my lack of personality Switzerland so just for the voice by listeners out there jeff was our guests and episode fifty nine one in year ago this month in that we really went deep and we discussed his time leading the our team the built out Amazon Alexa his time with nuance and a number of other companies spanning a more than twenty year career invoice that his yielded over twenty patents so he's been at the technical level in this space for a number of years check that out if you want to get the full back story on what he's doing it cobol and and also I should probably say congratulations jeff making the top forty four leaders invoice list with which voiced by put out last month. Thank you very much much. I am excited and honored to be on that list and yeah look. I hope I can live up to whatever expectations that creates well yeah I. I think we had a independent panel of judges in. I think your career speaks for itself so they put you on the list and I nodded approvingly when I saw you on there so I thought it was great. Great Great. Thank you okay so maybe setup. Today's conversation Jeff made a presentation. Eh The voice summit voice nineteen in July was called ten favourite application applications of speech not involving Alexa inference so I was conducting interview at the same time. Jeff was presenting so I miss the presentation somewhat selfishly. I thought afterwards persuade them to present it to me. Live so I could understand had what he was sharing but then I thought even better why don't I record the conversation for the voice spot podcast audience so we could both benefit from these insights from someone who's been around the the block in his looking beyond the elected Google assistant ecosystem so here's how I suggest we proceed Jeff. You've ten examples will walk through them in a countdown fashion starting with number ten afterward. If we have a little time as question for you about how the industry is evolving that sound good to you are fantastic okay without further redo ten applications of speech not evolving Lexus in France starting with number Tad. I believe that is smart. Baby Monitor senator. Is that correct. That's right so my my number ten on my list. Is that smart baby monitor so there are a couple of people that are looking at things like this. The one I would give a shoutout to is a group in Toronto called Village Technologies They are developing this end. I think is a fantastic idea India as a parent myself when you have a baby you wanna be able to monitor them in there in the nursery and their crib wherever and so it's common to put a a microphone that you can listen in on when you're out doing your work. You're in the kitchen year somewhere else in the office. and you want to be able to hear you know when the baby wakes up but why stop there. Why don't we put some some smarts into that baby monitor so that it can track the baby's linguistic development element as it's evolving? It's going over the first year or two or three of of of life and be able to tell the difference between babble all and maybe a crime may be well formed syllables that are formed of consonants and vowels and what do they start saying actual words. What are the first words and so forth and be able to monitor that over time so that you can you know track your baby's progress but also be alerted to if there's an issue if there's some development delay in your baby speaking and you can address that quickly and in time signed to do something about it. I think this is a fantastic idea that that you know you. WanNa be listening to your baby anyway. Let's pay attention to this so I think this is fascinating. Reading from a business standpoint makes a lot of sense to me too because parents are so focused on the development of their children. I can see how if this is successful and they they position correctly could probably get significant uptake. I'm really interested in what they're doing on the back end here and potentially taking thousands tens of thousands thousands maybe even millions of children who are very young and developing this database of sounds of infants yet exactly in the pre speech communication right and can we figure out the difference between a baby. That's just you know exercising their vocal cords or someone that's legitimately upset or in pain or hungry or I. I'm excited excited to see what comes of that and what they're able to do with that. It's very. I don't know if you're wearing that is their corpus. It exists which is of like infants in their vocalisations there there are recordings of infants but the hard part is to get appropriate labels on them so you know it's hard to know. No one babies crying was that because they were hungry was that because their diaper needed changing was that because they are in pain of of some sort or whatever in order for such a carcass useful you're in the sense of trying to understand what the cries vocalisations elections mean you'd have to know you'd have to have a bunch of labeled baby vocalisations and that's hard to come up with. You know you're you don't Wanna ago. Actually you know poke babies with a pin here what it sounds like when they're you know in pain right. You don't want to starve them to hear what they sound like when they're a AH hungry so you just have to you know I think if we're going to do something like that if we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get to the point of being able to analyze that you'll have to get the recordings things that babies will naturally make throughout the course of their of of their formative years and and then after the fact try to figure out now. Why were they crying. What was that sound for. Whatever well so this isn't something that's easily outsourced to contractors for supervised learning annotation right? That's that's right. That's right topic in today's news right. Yeah you kind of need you kind of need the parents to be able to say oh. Here's why the baby was crying. I figured it out. It's like crowd outsource annotation. It's brilliant exactly you know. There's another thing that I think could go with this very easily. People talk about the thirty million word gap between a babies that here a lot of speech when they're growing up and babies they don't hear a lot of speech and much has been made about how the the the thirty million word gap accounts for the difference between babies who grow up with strong language skills and babies who don't babies. You're academically advantaged or not so in addition to listening to the babies. This kind of baby monitor might actually WANNA listen to the adults in the room as well all to see. How much speech is the baby hearing What kind of speech is the baby hearing. You know positive positive language. Is the baby hearing whatever also there. I think there's a lot that can be done with this and and and we're just looking. We're just starting to think about it now. Yeah I think that over time the system could supplement if if it saw this this word I don't know what you call this word count utterance. It's deficit deficit rate with there's some deficit in terms of the number of words they're hearing on a daily weekly monthly basis. They adds up to that thirty million million over time that this solution might not necessarily cajole the parents into talking more but might supplement it with. I don't know reading to the child or having the interactive stories or something like that. That's right. You could absolutely do that but I think there's also underestimate the value of game vying. I that sounds that sounds like I'm trivializing this but raising a child is one of the most important things any anyone one can do but you know if you if just like people track their steps in and whatever if you're tracking the words that your babies hearing that might encourage you to be thinking about that and saying Oh. I need to read more to my child. I need to talk more to my child and so forth yeah I I think it's fascinating so the idea that we can have this giant Corpus of of infant utter a vocalisations utterances of some sort and then eventually actually potentially be able to label that this whole new Corpus which I assume would be a big advantage for whoever's launched these these absences soon there will be several over time and then maybe that's used more broadly now there is this other potential issue around COPPA but I assume they would just be an opt-in Dan. The parents could could sign up or right right exactly you wouldn't want to do this and participate in this unless you were willing to opt in and have that have the baby monitor actually pay attention to your babies speech and so forth okay so that was that was an interesting conversation all right so that's number ten. That's only number ten. It just gets better from from here all right well. Let's talk about number nine so number nine what we see everywhere everywhere. I look but I frequently run into mentions mentions of unmanned aerial vehicles whether they are urban taxis are drones that are monitoring pollution or whatever there's there's an increasing number of unmanned aerial drones and a problem with that that most people don't think about is that if if these if these drones are going to be able to fly through commercial airspace unlike overflying airport land at a Commercial Airport doesn't I'm not talking necessarily about landing at JFK but you even if they're going to overfly a regional airport that has an air traffic control tower they have to be able able to talk to air traffic control so these these airplanes that are that are flying around have to be able to understand and speak to air traffic control so it has to be able to say requesting permission to land on runway nineteen and and then the air traffic control will say something back it has to understand no sorry use runway thirteen instead approach from the northeast.

"Systems. So that brings us back to Bill hint show. He is with some fellow Cobol specialist. Are basically riding to the rescue. I guess is the best way to say it. He was actually running an t firm many years ago, and he was going to retire after decades working with financial and public institutions, but the calls from his former clients just kept coming in. So in twenty thirteen he launched a new company called Cobol Cowboys, which actually his wife came up with the name in reference to space Cowboys, which of course, is a two thousand movie about a group of retired air, force pilots that are called in for a trouble-shooting mission in space. His company slogan. Not our first rodeo. What is company does is it connects companies to programmers like himself of the twenty Cowboys? That work is part time consultants Meany have reached retirement age. And he says that our youngsters now when he says youngsters we're talking about people that are in their forties early. Fifties to him. They are youngsters. I would be a youngster. If I if I actually knew a damn thing about Kobo. And it's very lucrative these experience. Kobo programmers can earn as much as one hundred dollars an hour or more when they get called in. So and they get called in to patch glitches. They may have to rewrite coating manuals or they may have to make the new systems work with the old. And for their customers this expertise, it pales in comparison with what it would cost to actually replace old systems altogether. Not mention the risks. Former chief executive of Barclays peel C Antony jeans said for big financial institutions many of them created through multiple mergers. Over decades, the problems that banks face when looking to replace their old technology goes beyond shrinking pool of experts quoted it is immensely complex legacy systems from different generations are layered in often heavily intertwined. In many Bank executives describe a nightmare scenario in which a switchover fails in a count data for millions of customers. Just simply vanishes into thin air. As an industry it is aware. That it cannot keep relying on generation on a generation of specialist who are eventually going to go away. It's not so much that an individual may have retired. According to Andrew stars group technology officer at consulting firm essential L c but that the specialist may have expired died, so there's really no option to get him or her back. Editor's note. Unless you wanna try say aunts. Now, it's not all doom and gloom. According to IBM. Of course, they sail mainframe computers at run on Cobol that this future is not bleak for them. They've launched fellowships and training programs in coding of Cobol for the for young at specialists, and they say that they have trained more than one hundred eighty thousand developers over the past twelve years. But your veterans your Kobo veterans are saying, well, you know, it takes more than just knowing the language. Kobe systems vary widely an original programmers rarely wrote handbooks which makes troubleshooting difficult. Sometimes. According to hint show, some of the software that he wrote for banks in the nineteen seventies is still being used. And that is why calls from some very stressed out executives. Keep coming in. But it does seem that we are reaching a turning point the industry appears to be getting to this point where in the United States banks are are slowly shifting towards the newer languages. Which is actually them taking a cue from the overseas rivals who've already made the switch over. Commonwealth Bank of Australia as an example, they replaced their core banking platform in twenty twelve. It alternately took five years, and it costs more than one billion Australian dollars about seven hundred and fifty million American dollars this scrambling of the banks though. Has had the positive side effect of reviving careers of those who are retired or let go and whose expertise until recently. Was considered obsolete. For example, you have one Cobol programmer who does not want to be named. He's now in his sixties said his Bank lady mall in twenty twenty twelve. Because I turned a younger less expensive employees that were trained in new languages in twenty fourteen. However. He was brought back in as a contractor to the very same Bank. That had laid him off in mid two thousand twelve to fix issues at management had not intimidated. He he said, quote, the callback to the Bank was something of a personal vindication. For me. I guess what's old. Is new again.
