Tape that: Dutch inventor of audio cassette dies at age 94
"Let's jump into tech fan here since you know we. We just mentioned about recording stuff off the right. Yeah yeah kinda sad news and we're also doing this as part of our wookey. Trolling thing but I saw this i. I'm i'm kinda glad. I i saw you know five seconds while i was on a lunch break looking on my phone. I saw and i thought. Oh that'd be something we're talking about so go ahead. What well this is This is the guy who invented tightly. Walton's died at the ripe old age of ninety four. Yeah a law people forget nowadays that philips the dutch company invented this stuff named ventured the compaq says as being the lead on the compact disc. It's funny his goal. I'm looking at the los angeles times. Obituary that you linked his goal is making tapes and their players. Far more portable and easier to use because. Look the cassette. Tape wasn't the beginning of Recording to a magnetic tape they had real to reel that that was invented and twenty three And they had a in recording studios in radio. Stations is early as the thirties and it was very complex stuff to use. This guy took that basic concept and although the tapes were a little different And he wanted he had. He carried a block of wood in his pocket and the goal was to have the player and a tape. Take up about same amount of space and you can't really argue with his success And think about you know he. He basically created an entire industry from his invention. So while we talk about this guy. Let's talk about the cassette tape as well. Because it's our wikipedia. Wiki trolling Commonly called the tape cassette cassette tape audio cassette or simply tape or cassette. It would to me. It was always those were always interchangeable. Do you got you got a blink tape you gotta cassatt you got you and you had really two kinds you had the prerecorded cassette which was records like. We were talking about earlier albums Do you remember the single cassettes. It would be one song young. Rip off to me. I think i had a couple of days. Oh everybody hype blank tape. Yeah it was just people people. Some people want to listen to singles call Yeah there's two things that conduct strikes strikes me about except tape. First of all is the miniaturization they something that was expensive and very fiddly a bake. There's something really was only yes. They're professionals or for very rich people. Yeah and they miniaturized it to something that the allowed portability and transform them the way we listen to music but the second thing for me. I you know anybody who's ever use cassette tapes now the every now and again there. We go wrong with tangled up in your player and it used to be the you know if a tangled up. Somebody's car you wonder. If sometimes you just wander around on the street or in accomplish something you need to see. The massive tangle of time resources obviously yanked out they call yanked till the bits that the come off and then and the end it was broken at that point and then just come thrown on the street when people to listenable A new see those long around but generally they were absolutely you know they were pretty reliable. Not particularly high quality but pretty reliable. And i think the reliability they built into that platform it really astonishes me more than anything else because it was completely mechanical and yet You ninety five percent the time. It was relatively flawlessly. It was introduced in september nineteen sixty. Three came in two forms already recorded content in prerecord content. Remember when you found out that you could stick a piece of paper or something in the little hole at the top and record over. A prerecorded tape mess right. Yeah that little tab out so you could. Nobody could record over that. That six you'd make you'd make a mix tape for someone. You had a bus. That little thing screwing up my mix tape. Technology was originally designed for dictation machines but improvements of fidelity led to the compact cassette to supplement the stereo eight track cartridge in reel to reel tape recording in most non-professional applications
Chromebooks Gain Share of Education Market Despite Shortages
"Four our first story pandemic has been huge for laptops and Google secret profit is winning it all chromebooks because we got, we got a whip out the history books here. We've come a long way with the old laptop computer my first computer ahead to live with my legs because it was a gateway, it was like to metric ton the only computer with a cow theme I think that's what they were going for their and then compaq laptops. I'm pretty sure doubled as a bulletproof like storm shield. Yeah, they were. Very Bruce Wayne, and then you had the dude, you're getting a Dell Guy. It's going to cost three thousand dollars. You better get a mortgage for that del. Ted Day the laptop market has changed in ways that might surprise you out. chromebooks are officially becoming the unofficial laptop of over Nineteen Jack. I noticed that because learning is happening remotely schools have been snatching up just the cheapest laptop option out there for kids and you know chromebooks are coming in at like two hundred fifty on the bottom of this is like a skinny computer with no hard drive it's basically a. Lego, it's a physical reincarnation of a chrome web browser that's about it oh, and if you're curious about getting one there sold out, it's a five-month way. Schools are snatching these up at such a rapid rate in preparation for distant learning that crumbs global market share for computers has climbed to ten percent from eight percent last year, which brought Jack and I do a key question. We found fascinating what Tech Company is. Dominating for laptops right now, this same tech company that was dominating for laptops three years ago Nick Microsoft. If there's a Microsoft makes its own laptops, but it's windows software still powers get this eighty three percent of laptops globally we're not just talking about those surface tablets.

Tribal solutions and challenges
"Today. We're GONNA start off in Tacoma County in California. We Have Greg. Sarah's he is the chairman of the Federated Indians of Grayton Ranch Ria he is a tribal member of the Rancho Rio which includes descendants of the southern. Pomo and coast me walk. People are pleasure to have him here and Sarah's welcome thank you terra. Good morning and chairman just want to start off in understand more about what is your tribe is facing and where things currently stand in terms of facing cove in nineteen Well I think as with all tribes are. I thought of my first thought. Is the leader in. The leadership of this tribe is to take care of our tribal citizens How do we ensure their health? How do we continue programs at service? The elders and so forth With of course short with do less revenue At the same time we have a large casino One of the largest in California. We have fifteen hundred nearly fifteen hundred tribal citizens and at the same time we have over two thousand team members that work in the Casino Resort Casino. Close about a month ago And so of course. Revenues dried up. We've been very fortunate. I will have to say we've been able Well with spending money we've been able to take care of our citizens that's far and continue per capsule albeit somewhat reduced or You know pull back lever connector cavs ability to pay for caps. But we've been able to keep our been most of our programs going And we've been. I think very worked very hard. It's been very stressful for me to make sure that the all the team members who've been furloughed Since that time and for the indefinite future will be Will continue to receive their medical benefits. We will continue to. We have a very good plan. A the Chitral Cadillac plan whereby they pay nothing out of their paycheck so while they're furloughed. We continue to do that. We paid their salaries until many I After which we made sure that with the bump in the employment from the federal government to six hundred dollar bump that they will have somewhat close to equitable pay And so we figure with that and the insurance which will go on indefinitely. They're they're covered but it's been really really stressful About how to get monies We Hope Tara that we will get We believe we're GONNA get the employee retention credit Because we kept our employees. We have a hundred employees just in our travel office with our programs and we had to reduce furlough some of them and reduce salaries there We Governor Newsom here in. California has been very good he. We don't have to pay our compact fees. He's weighed compact piece for six months. Which of the Health? And of course we hope to apply for the Stabilization Fund for the tracks. It sure interment. Is there any talk that those funds will have to be paid back eventually the compact fees? No I don't because again The money the the casinos are closed down. And they're not generating any revenue and remember the very good question the compaq fees based on revenue and when there's no revenue that okay and I think the guy. I don't believe the governor's going to ask us to pay them back or if he does It'll be able to do away in a way that it won't break if he's been very good insensitive to our situation but for the time being of course the casinos are generating revenue and a big other question that we have right now. Those of us that are operating casinos. How do we reopen when if and when we do reopen? We're going to have to practice. The you know six feet distancing measure how do you what would you imagine a casino with Slot Machines and card tables? How do you open a large facility? Which is the one we have Where whereby? You have to have people six feet apart all of Asli. Your revenue flow is going to be greatly reduced when you do reopen so again. That is something that I will sit down and talk to the governor about when that time comes. I'm working on a model for how to do that with him. Now but again we have no idea when that limited opening will begin in. This is something in a lot of tribal leaders are thinking about 'em especially because the tribe makes the call whether it's open or not and A lot of tribes have just on their own heeded the call to Bring more awareness. And that's why a lot of them have closed down end so chairman says anything else you WANNA share about dealing with the state to either get funding or aid or assistance needed Often in the past. It's been the story That sometimes there are way too many hurdles when it comes to working with the state having a seat at the table. We've heard a lot of different things too when it comes to fema funding. Where do things stand now? That relationship with the tribe or with the state. Sorry well we were in A. We're in a very good place. We WE HAVE A. We are our particular type we have. I have a good relationship with Governor tribes here thus far have had a good relationship with governor newsom so Again one of the things as I was waiting We didn't want to furlough any of our people until I kept in touch with him until he negotiated with the feds to get that unemployment bump once he got that then for instance we could take care of our furloughed people and quit paying them salaries. We were paying the full salary until we heard that. But that bump so we waited we worked with him for that we also as I said are working with him. have worked with him to For the time being away the contact sees So So far so good I mean given the situation now regarding the opening I will. We will defer to him when it is safe and ready. I know that some smaller tribes others may want to do differently We also have as you indicated or inferred the option of not opening. But we're doing everything we can. And when we do reopen we're already looking into the various devices which To tell people have a fever coming into the casino An all that sort of thing. So we will comply with Whatever he suggests regarding avery opening my tribal I can't of COURSE SPEAK FOR OTHER TRIBES. Serio in chairman when it comes to your tribe are there any reported cases of covert nineteen? No not that I know of We have taken really strict measures to talk to. Our families are traveled families of particularly keeping the elders inside Sheltering in place a lot of things are kind of sad. I mean we were. We have larger organic garden where we were delivering vegetables and so forth to elders Our some of our staff were in. You know we've had to stop even things like that But yet our services are still in place so that if tribal elders have any health issues they are staff in the tribal office are in contact with the families and with the elders. So that if anything comes up There is an infrastructure in place to support our people in the matter of any health issues that arise
In Times Of Crisis You Need To Flirt With Stupid
"Welcome to Danine of the lockdown here in Malaysia. I am just in a compaq now. Pretty Empty cowpox waiting for the doors to open so I can get into the supermarket. Try to local supermarket and That was just a little bit so moving onto the big shopping mall hoping that that might be a little more under control and I got a great comment from mine. Only Dean Cobaine Hollandsworth yesterday and it was a discussion. We were having about what the new tomorrow is for. Spas and for hotels in general for the industry in general for for the economy in general and one of the comments he made which I thought was fantastic is that maybe it's time to flirt with stupid. And what he's really saying. Is that the idea that once upon a time were considered streaker. That would have been laughed out of boardrooms and and executive offices. Maybe now just might be. Those ideas want fly and something touched on a few days ago but I do love that terminology flood with stupid so I think as we're preparing for the other side of this thing. Start thinking about all the crazy ideas you could possibly imagine for your business and things that might maybe once upon a time the same stupid maybe right now is the time that those ideas might just get through.
Most feel good about the economy but not the state of the country
"The president must be brought to heel the nation must be safe I guess the nation must be safe from the lowest unemployment from nineteen sixty nine and the addition of thirteen trillion dollars to the economy I guess we have to save America from that somebody who can help explain what is the logic of the political elites today is perhaps one of the greatest writers we have today a classicist in his own right senior fellow at the Hoover Institution you've seen him almost every night on television he is professor Victor Davis Hanson professor welcome to America first thank you grab the bastion I'm you've written a piece of the fabulous website American greatness called top get trump forever having read it it raised in me a very simple question I see the president's defense team doing sterling work this week we have fabulous America's scholars such as Alan Dershowitz we have former especial councils like Kenneth Starr who have given very solid lectures lectures I would've enjoyed in graduate school very professorial very fact based the history of impeachment and I thought to myself why is there anything that the president's defense team could say that would change the minds of those who wish to remove the duty elected president from the White House are only for the fact that there's four five senators are there is maybe thirty or forty house members who are you know they have been aware of political reality and are in need of states are congressional district don't wanna can put a cold from the congressional district I put my fault publican lost in a Democrat one Republican is one name is way ahead poll hello I I think that's the only thing it's not about actual crimes it's for a variety of one complex reasoning across town wait until November because I take very agreed upon probably blooms Alexian inn for about eight years of the progressive project pretty much junk for generations and they're just not just one tap on powerful so we go to all these **** drummer do not moment calls twenty nine month Michael Kohn Michael I'm not a tax returns impeachment you were just never yonder worn out because the outlook the alternative Sebastian I guess it's Bernie Sanders on the stone for the new green beer or revelations are apologize for young speech by a little more we don't have much our angle control of the catastrophic miscalculation the ball could be able to stay home and I love should clue without thank you hello they may get and then when I got to lose they're not they called while com there do what we did and how it's gonna be bipartisan and you go do whatever we want the United and they will come and get you look knowledge just giving a call out the kitchen sink speeches always been practical moves on on and I'll talk to quit cold cold creams and broadly our public schools the abuse of power right in Congress but that didn't go anywhere and then made a really crowd because your mistake and betting everything on Adam shell because the more you hear in the less you like it he appeared on the number you can't tell the truth and he's been caught so many cons non and I don't think they want I really don't think they want because I think they want to end on Friday and then say it's really a good we did get a chance to call witnesses but the downside I don't think Adam Schiff wants to go up there on the old and then have the whistle blower band on all give Mary versions of how this functionality because are not compatible with talking to press a Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution all for all of of the case for trump you need to read this book you you built your career as a historian historian of military history of of of the ancient civilizations of of the Greeks this is the bedrock of western civilization then let me ask you a very simple question that is my concern there is this theory of of social contract that there there are written and unwritten ways of doing business and and and western civilization is built upon them if one of the two parties in the system not a fringe party not the Libertarian Party not not Ross Perot but one of the two party says that we will impeach the president because we count we in the at the ballot box isn't that the shredding of the social contract or even the original call product on which the Republic was founded what what does this do on the long term for the United States professor Hanson well I think if you read our federal sixty five and sixty circle how we can serve them and other essays at the time about impeachment I thought it would be very where very hard to do that's one name that tune because you have to have it how old six separate crafter and they didn't think it looks to be the opposite they didn't envision that some of the opposition party trickle of the house would be a European Parliament terrible but not that's what it's become and there's a lot of Republicans we believe the appropriate approach doesn't want the Democrats so I imagine that the next time we have a democratic president and there are any legal gonna consider doing that because it's now going to be the most off the laundry vintage one as we know it doesn't exist anymore it's been transmog apart in the dictionary yeah but hi this is the way it is and remember we have no special counsel report no bipartisan support you have no public support need this approach currently W. peaks of the nineteenth century of course come president and will premiere Alexian it was just awesome we have in the basement we are not in the house Judiciary buttonholes intelligence committee to selectively things by Alan ship so we just it's just patently dishonest asymmetrical one and I think they're gonna pay a price for me home is on his way to a seventy nineteen seventy two or nineteen eighty four reelection well that's exactly the mangled that's exactly the next question I wanted to see professor if if nothing else exogenous happens if there's no massive external crisis if the economy state keeps going the way it's going and the president is reelected in two hundred and seventy seven days what do you expect the effect to be the knock on effect on these people will will live suddenly be Damascene moment where they say okay we got it wrong way sorry the media the left and will behave ourselves could it get worse and and really how could it get worse well here is the story we just have to ask what did they do after seventy two when they got the winner should not my government a surgeon on both the Compaq we never we haven't won since JFK and us you have a democratic guy with a southern accent DJ can you call the right and unions kind of a central St eighty four the left four my gosh school's out and they did it again with the caucus and then they they didn't do it again I got a guy with a southern accent so I think they'll be a lot of people who say the A. L. C. when school's out and you want to let you wrecked the blue dogs but I don't I'm not sure the demography and the changing twenty first century landscape allow that to happen the Democratic Party is so the Jacobin party control no quality and I don't know if they they kind of extinguisher liquidate all of the people want in all single barrelled omegle dinosaur the nominee list anymore and the people in there a light might exist like Bloomberg S. inviting has been scouring the exits images from renouncing or the prior cell because I don't know if there's anybody left the use of the for a different one with her late and have to come and say you guys destroyed the Democratic Party it's kind of a lot of one whether the Republicans take the house of course Brian's got fifty fifty chance of doing ten cameras on them as well can a pragmatist with a southern accent save the Democrats about trounced this November we shall see first we have to win the election those who believe in the make America great again agenda with talk to professor Victor Davis Hanson senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author of the case for trump will be back with a good professor in a
Dell Computers: Michael Dell
"Long before for anyone heard of the tech underpins like Mark Zuckerberg. Evan Spiegel ORC. Trina Lake back before it was fashionable to drop out of college to pursue your startup even before people used the term startup back in the ancient days of the one thousand nine hundred eighty s the dorm room miracle story. You've heard of was Michael Dell's now today. The company is enormous beyond enormous worth billions of dollars Dell has sold more than six hundred fifty million computers since Michael founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. And what's amazing about. This isn't the money it's not even the idea. What's amazing easing about all this? Well Michael Dell. Because he's not a backslapping sales guy. He doesn't come across as particularly charismatic. He's actually on the quiet side. Maybe even a little shy Michael grew up in Houston in the nineteen seventies was just as digital technology was taking off in that city with companies like Texas instruments and then later Compaq. His Dad was a doctor. His mom was financial consultant and the expectation was that Michael. Michael would become a doctor like his dad. But even from a young age Michael Dell felt pulled in a different direction he was into numbers. I mean I remember when I was small child. My Dad had this adding machine victor adding machines before the electronic calculator and I was was just fascinated that you could add up numbers with this machine and really big numbers and and it would make this like mesmerizing sound every time it did it and I just kind of love that and then I remember when I was about Seven or eight years old. I bought a calculator. I it was the first semiconductor based calculators and I was fascinated that this small machine could do complicated math problems so yeah I got I got very interested in this stuff it also turned out that about equidistant between my junior high school and our and our house there was a radio shack store and so when I was riding my bike home I could stop by the radio shack next door and see the you know early forms of the of the personal computer and hang out there until the kick me out of the store and were you you know like kind of entrepreneurial as a kid yeah I kind of liked business And I had all kinds of businesses is selling baseball cards Had A stamp auction. I got a job at a gold coin and jewelry store and I was to negotiate with people that were selling things and by those things the lowest possible price because the owner gave me Nia percentage of the cut and whether you also worked for the local paper for for some time. Yeah so I got this job. Working for the Houston is in Post newspaper. It doesn't exist anymore now. They think they combined with the Houston Chronicle. And my job along with hundreds of other mostly mostly you know. Teenagers was to call random people on the phone and try to sell them a subscription to the Houston Post newspaper and I observed three things the first thing I observed. Is that if you sounded like the people you were talking to. They were much more more likely to buy the newspaper from you like you. You put on a text like a heavy Texas accent. Yeah I'm not GonNa do it for you here but I think you can. You can use your imagination nation. Okay so second thing I heard was that people that were getting married. Were much more likely to buy the newspaper and then the third thing I observed is that people that were moving into a new house or residents were also far more likely to buy the newspaper. Well how did you Who was getting married and was moving in? Well you talk to them. You strike up a conversation you just call people and say and ask them about themselves. I guess this is like at that a time or perfectly happy to tell strangers personal details right. Yeah so I. I observed this and what I figured out is that in Texas. This is when you as many states when you want to get a marriage license you have to go to the county courthouse. It turns out this public information right and among the information that you give to the county court is the address you want the licensed sent to so so with this information. I devised a direct mail program where I sent letters to all of the people that had applied for marriage licenses in Sixteen County area surrounding Harris County. Which is where Houston Texas is is and I hired a bunch of my high school pals to go out to all these county courthouses and type the names in two small apple two computers and I sent a massive direct mail campaign to all those people that were applying to get marriage licenses and there were also at that time in Houston? There was a building boom. There were these very large apartment and condominium complexes that were going up and so I would go to these buildings under construction and sort of figure out who was in charge and say A. Hey I'm from the Houston Post newspaper and you know we've got this great offer where your new residence get the paper free for two weeks and all of these do is fill out the form. You're a high school student when you're doing this. Yes how much money did you walk away with. But I think it was about seventeen years old. I made a little over eighteen thousand dollars that year. This is like freakishly precocious of a of a high school senior. Like that's it's just weird that you would even no to think of doing those things I mean. Don't don't you think I didn't really think about it like that. I just it just seemed like a good idea so I was pursuing. You was working. I pull you things that didn't work but but that worked so I I kept doing eighteen thousand dollars. What did you do with that money? I mean that that must have been more money than you've ever seen in your life. I bought a BMW. So I wanted I wanted to. BMW Am. W what did the other students think of you. What did you have this reputation as like a business whiz kid in high school or or like? What did they anything about you? You know. I don't really know and I and I didn't really care So I I was sort of keeping myself and I had a few friends is but I I wasn't the most social of kids but you must have been somewhat social because you were going out and selling stuff to strangers rangers. Sure social enough to make the sale. Yeah so you are on the one hand doing this entrepreneurial stuff and then I guess you were also just really into computers. Yeah the original computer that I you know got my hands on at home was the same one everybody else had. which was the apple to apple to? Yeah Yeah and one of the beautiful things about the apple two was that all of the circuits were discrete circuits that you could understand so you could go in and start to play with those and modify them and reprogram the BIOS and upgrade the system and take it apart put it back together so something happened here around Nineteen Eighty one IBM introduced the IBM PC. And that was sort of a very important moment. Because if you dial back the clock to the late seventies early eighties in this company. IBM had a leadership of the part of the economy referred for to US Information Technology. Unlike any other company at any other time in history they were by far the dominant company so in Ibm mm-hmm introduced the IBM PC. This to me seemed to be a very important moment so I try to understand everything was going on about that and so when you took apart this. IBM PC that was selling for about three thousand dollars. As far as I could tell it was about six hundred dollars. It's worth parts. Wait you bought one and you took it apart just to check the insides out sure. Yeah Yeah what else would you do. So you gotta you gotTa take it apart. How how can you understand it if you don't take it apart philly? Most people buy computers to like you know at that time. He has to do basic you know accounting owning and word processing. You bought it to take part. Well I wanted to understand did and you know to understand it. You have to take it

"So what are the guiding principles of creativity is that some of you very best ideas. Come out of sheer frustration products like honest tea or cliff bar olders dyson these all came about because their founders couldn't find the beverages or energy bars or shoes or or vacuum cleaners that they wanted so they invented them but in the case of Tristan Walker. I think it's safe to say that he didn't just start from a place of mild frustration. He actually started from a place of being fed up even angry because for most of his life he had felt completely league ignored totally overlooked whenever he walked into the shaving. I'll drugstore virtually all the big shaving brands were making products that worked well on men with relatively straight hair but tristen couldn't find a high quality razor that worked on his curly facial hair without leaving razor bumps olivarez neck Kajol line and he knew that like him many African American men were dealing with the exact same problem so he decided to design bevill a shaving system with a simple single blade razor that was easy on his face and he wanted everything about the product to look and feel great not like the dusty boxes of shaving products for African American men that we seem to be on the bottom shelves at the drugstore and his ambition to build a black owned and led consumer Marand as big as Johnson Johnson or proctor and gamble but of course when I tried to raise money from all those VC firms on sand hill road in Silicon Valley and he got a lot of knows but eventually he was able to launch his company with a razor some shaving cream but of oil and brush and over the past five years his brand has grown to include more than thirty specialized hair and beauty products for men and women which are now sold and lots of big retailers lers across the country a few weeks ago. Tristan sat down to tell me how he did it in front of a live audience at the Lincoln Theater in Washington. DC tristen Walker Central. I'll take it so let's start. Let's start at the beginning. Tell me about about out your childhood knew you grew up in Queens where I like to describe. It is a bit of the Rosa grew from concrete story. I grew up in Queens New York projects. It's Welfare Bouts of homelessness that sort of stuff right and I realized very early at one goal in life and as as wealthy as possible as quickly as possible Salaam. I realized three ways to do it. I was to be an actor athlete that didn't work second second was to work on Wall Street that didn't work in the last entrepreneurship and then thank goodness. I came to that realization. We were a little boy. A A your dad died. He was killed killed and you grew up with an older brother and your mom. What did your mom do yet for work so oh my mom worked three jobs mainly New York City Housing Authority Administrative Assistant? She spent some time working for Time Warner Cable and she did some retail all at the same time within seven days. I don't know how she did it. She did it. Thank goodness for her. It was not easy but she persevered and as a result of I think her perseverance good fortune beam I graduate college in my family and she she really in what what do you remember about like your neighborhood growing up as a kid I mean would did you do. Did you add in do much because I couldn't do much like my father was killed. When I was three years old? I don't remember too much about him other than the fact that he was killed when I was three years old which is a little bit telling to Kinda type of environment that I did grow up in so you know I lived probably the first six seven years of my life live in Jamaica Queens New York forty projects in the time I turned around seven years old. We moved to flushing Queens. Another project can development and it was much of the same right. My mother was like you're going to be the one you're not gonNa go through this stuff very disciplined. Stay home. Get Your studies and you're not going outside. When I snuck snuck outside? She caught me. I got in a lot of trouble but that was really kind of my life right. Get to school get home. Do you work repeat and you know that discipline actually Kinda got me to wearing them. Now school easy for you has a kid yeah. I was a good student because the discipline that was inspired me I always excelled right. I tended to be at least up until high school anyway at or near the top of my class you know and I kinda slow down when I say that stuff because by the time I got to high school. I realized I didn't even know what a verb was right. I wouldn't do this entire time. All the way up until my high school years doing really really well at the top of my class not even knowing what verb now and that sort of thing was as a teenager you ended up going to this really elite private boarding school hotchkiss in Connecticut the way I like to describe posh kisses is the first time I got to see how the other half lived. I went to school literally rockefellers Ford's right and I learned a couple of things first name mattered to being wealthy wasn't same as being rich and the last and probably the most important was I can compete with each and every one of them while while while I didn't know Oh what a verb was I learned and by the end of my four years they're you know on a roll like that. Sort of thing you know is then absolutely just wonderful experience for me but transformative in a little bit different from how I grew up was it was the transition for you when you got there because you were like fourteen years old. I've been living away from home since I was thirteen fourteen years old and were the first few months at hard for you. academically we get to the school and I realize I don't even have a computer and you know all of my other classmates had computers that sort of thing and I went to leave as the English professor who is my adviser at the time and I remember he took me to this basement. We're all used textbooks are and then he was old compaq like Presidio L. Computer that we had the like hall out and take it to my room so academically. It was very tough because I wasn't equipped with the tools to compete but over the years accelerating so you fish you go to Stony Brook University New York to study economics. Most most students don't necessarily know what they're gonNa do but did you have a sense of what you want to pursue their and what you thought you would do after I mean I was always thinking about the after I wanted to get wealthy yeah I was pretty singular in that help very singular in that hope and overtime that's kind of morphed and changed and the things that are important Ed Morrison changed but I knew I was very very very focused on how to get there and Wall Street was the next greatest option. All this silicon valley stuff at new idea about my world was New England so you're thinking do this degree and I'll go into finance plows e- economics is the closest degree we had at Stony Brook again to Wall Street Okay and in between my first and second year of university I got an internship and Lehman Brothers back office halfway through I I said I want to try some of this front office stuff so I left that enjoined trading desk at the time just observing so when you graduate so you you went actually went to work for Leman and then as a traitor and then everything and eventually JP Morgan in that time at that time time period. Did you still think this is what I should be doing. This is my sort of path to the worst years of my life. This is two thousand and five when I joined the company and as a traitor. Your job is to make money
UAW's Strike Against GM Brings To Mind Last Century's Labor Battles
"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply there was a time when a strike at GM sent shockwaves throughout the US economy but talks aimed at ending an ongoing strike are expected to continue into the weekend and it's clear neither the company nor the United Auto Workers Union are as powerful as they once were. Here's NPR's Scott horsely. Americans woke up this week to something. We don't see that often anymore anymore. Workers at a Major Industrial Company walking picket line a strike against General Motors is already taking a toll on the country's largest automaker nearly fifty thousand the united auto workers striking against General Motors this a number of workers already on the picket line here the GM's vehicles are bigger than ever strikes have gotten smaller the company's unionized workforce has shrunk by about ninety percent from its peak in the nineteen seventies Micheline Maynard who covered autos and manufacturing actioning for NPR and the New York Times says the UAW's actually been supplementing its picket lines with workers from other companies. It is being portrayed as let's help our brothers and sisters sisters at General Motors but it wasn't necessary ten or fifteen years ago and it was a very different story during General Motors Heyday Chevrolet quality mass production demands people thousands of people for most of the company's history. Those people were unionized labor expert. Harley shaken of UC Berkley says General Motors and the UAW practically grew up together in nineteen fifty they signed the Treaty of Detroit a five year deal that gave workers annual pay raises and agenda pension it was the UAW and General Motors at the bargaining table that brought millions of Americans into the middle class and that fueled a growing economy and a broader prosperity be you in your role America in the Nineteen Fifties General Motors was riding high and so were Ford and Chrysler the Big Three controlled ninety percent of the auto the market Japan and Germany were still recovering from the war America had it all seemed and Union President Walter Reuther insisted workers get their share. We believe this is the most effective way to expand purchasing power and purchasing power is the key to the economic future of the American economy that strong bargaining power our continued through nineteen seventy when GM workers staged another headline grabbing strike good evening General Motors the united auto workers have announced tentative agreement on a new new three year contract that contract included pay raises totaling nearly twenty percent but the good times we're about to give way to a decade of Malays Inflation Asian soared in the nineteen seventies and so did the price of gasoline. US auto makers struggled to keep up with changing tastes General Motors Nineteen seventy-five Chevrolet Enderle Nova. There may never be a better time to move to a GM compaq demand for combat cars created an opening that foreign carmakers were quick to exploit the the beginning of the concessions era maynard who wrote the book the end of Detroit says foreign carmakers Toyota Honda Volkswagen began opening their own factories here in the US those companies would come in and build factories and employ Americans and then those Americans would join the uaw they didn't GM in the a union did get a reprieve in the nineties when gas prices fell and sales of pickup trucks SUV's took off but the prophets from those big vehicles masked a lot of rotten management and managers often struggled with a complacent and unyielding unit when the recession hit just over a decade ago the once-mighty General Motors was forced into bankruptcy only rescue from the federal government saved GM and Chrysler from going under the collapse of these companies would have been devastating for countless Americans and done enormous damage to our common in return for its help the Obama administration demanded big concessions from both the companies and the Union including a new a two tiered wage scale that allowed GM pay new workers less shaken says it was a bitter pill that was an incredibly grim moment went for the U. A. W. But their central priority was to ensure that the Detroit automaker survived that wasn't a given general. Oh Motors did survive and after years of sacrifice. The Union now wants a bigger piece of its profits which topped eight billion dollars last year. GM is a much diminished finished company though its market share has tumbled from a high of fifty percent to less than sixteen percent union power suffered a similar decline. GM has also invested heavily in Mexico where workers make a fraction of what they do here that raises a question that Walter Reuther might have asked with fewer and fewer well-paid American workers. There's who will buy all those cars the company's making Scott Horsely N._p._R. News Washington.
"compaq" Discussed on The Tech Guy
"A compaq windows x._p. Repeat wow yeah so. I can record the sixteen original tracks if i want you know drums guitar base etcetera but then i had to move them via a u._s._b. <hes> <hes> thumb drive or something over to my windows seven thing to my other h._p. Pavilion which i love because it's got the to the dual drives you know which is really cool for backing up. I can just do a a clone. The main hard drive to the to the backup hard drive but it also has four u._s._b. Ports <hes> or inputs that i like and knowing that i have to move windows ten. I was wondering if you had a recommendation about what what kind of laptop will would be still has like four u._s._b. Imports anymore. What you really want is not u._s._b. Although everything will have u._s._b. But thunderbolt is something you should look for because a thunderbolt is basically the modern equivalent of fire wire okay so so you can get under fire wire thunderbolt connect cables for like thirty or forty bucks apple sells for twenty nine dollars use as my fire wire mixer which has the sixteen sixteen points for the recording yes but it has a farm output would convert to thunderbolt on the new computer up and then and so you wanna absolutely now. I apple sells it for the mac. I presume if the mac does it that you can do it on a p._c. But remember apple was was kind of funny because thunderbolt and fire wire both our intel technologies off but apple really seems to be the early adopter so interestingly the thing with the u._s._b. Thing is the the my good devi nine thousand series pavilion which i've i've put a few of them together and repaired for people. It's it's been a trustee workers. I know it's kinda keeps computer but he has four usb outputs and i use those for <hes> extra monitors thunderball a better choice thunderbolt is of higher speed connection and multiple outputs so i can use maybe three or four monitors daisy chain. You can daisy chain it and <hes> u._s._b. For monitor's is okay but it's it's a little slow. Thunderbolt is plenty fast and supports display port technology over thunderbolt so thunderbolt is really the future and and i would say you buy today should have at least one thunderbolt port on it. I mean that's a few few monitors whether or not all the same monitor each each one can be individual as long as the monitor support <hes> sunnyville out as well as in right because you want to pass through new monitors. You'd have to get thunderball monitors yeah but <hes> yeah i think it's a great solution and <hes> you know it's it ultimately thunderball. It's going to replace a whole variety of connectors usb. The three point one over thunderbolt yep because type c connector <hes> thunderbolt which is a high speed forty gigabit per second pretty gigabyte per second data bus us really d._m._a. Data bus as fire wire was which means you could direct memory access. He's very fast. It also supports video it. Even supports is charging so this this is what's confusing about it because it all looks like type c connector and it's not always clear when you see type c connector on a computer is that u._s._b. Three one or is it full thunderball. Three is it do display. Does it do charging and then there's no requirement that says that has to do all of them. It often often selection so read up on the specs before you buy it. Ideally you'd get a machine with at least one thunderbolt report that does data video and charging yeah because right now that the mixture that museum and i'll i'll try to be concise. I appreciate all your help is the sixteen <hes> mixer works with x. p. <music> but the driver doesn't work with my windows seven and that's another problem. It's thunderbolt. Thunderball has to have a windows. Ten machine is not supported on x._p. Okay so my mixture that works. It works with x. p. computer. I'll be able to convert that theoretically that ex that far output to a thunderbolt with windows ten machines. I'm almost jumping x._p. Over visible you're entering the twenty first century my friend literally over some x._p. To <hes> windows ten yeah okay so you're gonna wanna do that anyway. Yeah yeah the important thing about at least apples thunderbird connector. It's not bidirectional. All it's basically a converter that takes outbound fire wire you plug it in. It's fire wire four hundred forty plug it in that goes goes into the computer and turns it into thunderbolt so it's a one way poor but i think that's probably how your machine expects it. I want to get the tracks onto back yeah onto onto a windows ten machine eventually and then you do all my work within the daw and whether i have thirty to forty two or just ten tracks and then then finally mixing mixing but i i i i like the fire mixture because of the <hes> the sixteen inputs absolutely. I have a fire wire mixer myself. There were very common. Motoo made him a bunch of companies but he's made them because it was a big fat pipe and <hes> and it was fast enough and it was in sync so you could use it for making music as opposed a u._s._b. Where you could only due to tracks right under tonner bold is really the future i think and i it's taking awhile but it we're now seeing it. Almost all new machines story short my old sixteen track far <hes> wire mixer is gonna still be good when i get <hes> goes centerfold linked to a windows ten computer well it should be you can at least get the hardware working working. I don't know if it requires an a._s._i._o. Driver on the p._c. and i bet it. Does i think yeah. I don't think that's a problem. I mean this was going to require some research before he spent some money. I i need to understand what i'm talking about. A disconnect between fire wire was supposed to be the future for multi-track. I know boom and and i you understand i say with some hesitance. Oh the future is under three because we've gone through this again and again and again but i honestly do think now adoption for thunderball three the variety of devices for thunderbolt three and mostly in my mind the capability of thunderball three means it is is it is a port that will have a future. I i really believe it. It's really nice in fact and thanks again for your time so you were talking about h._p. Maybe not so bad as as <music> h._p. Computer that might be fine now especially the laptops and the reason being that remember they split off the <hes> the enterprise h._p. Business isn't stuff split off from the division and i think the division took that as an opportunity to say you know we've we've kind of earned a not not such a great reputation they. They are the number one. They literally are the number one manufacturer p._c.'s but they were making a lot of inexpensive better than h._p. Three thousand nine hundred seventy days should all you yeah well. I know about that. That's a pretty good. That's a classic <hes>. No i think the current h._p. Especially lapse very very good. They're excellent but don't ignore or dell lenovo <hes>. I just bought a novel all in one that i'm the yoga a nine forty. That's very nice very impressive fairly inexpensive so there are a lot of good choices out. There and i'm surprised you don't use apple almost all the music makers. I know our apple people. You're you feel that i'm an android guy. I'm in collab. I have my own personal reasons for not being an apple guy that's completely legitimate but probably because i started out on a task cam port a studio and then my first computer that have built up built myself.

Rod canyon left Texas Instruments with one vision to create a better, portable computer. He had no idea his twenty eight pound invention would not only compete, but also be out computing, giant IBM. We I ran this episode in may of twenty seventeen and there is a lot of great stuff in here. Enjoy. Well, it's that if I b m Anderson market they take over and push everybody out in February of nineteen Eighty-four IBM introduces their own portable into the market. Ardor stopped because before it actually was introduced they were showing it to dealers and customers, and they just stopped ordering ours. That was that was a very very life threatening situation. We had this factory running full speed and no place to go. From NPR. It's how I built this show that innovators entrepreneurs idealists and stories behind the movements. They built. I'm guy Rosin today show Haradh canyons personal computer startup Compaq too on the biggest computer company in the world. And what? If you have a PC at home or at work, and you buy some software like word or turbo tax. It doesn't really matter. If you've Adele or a HP or Toshiba because if it's a piece of it will run PC's after and that makes perfect sense. Right. But believe it or not in the nineteen eighty s in the early days of personal computers. That is not how it worked. If your computer was say in IBM. Well, you needed software written for an IBM. An IBM was the biggest player by far. In fact, some people thought that IBM would eventually crush all the competition and become the only PC maker. But all that changed when rod Kenyon started Compaq now rot wasn't your typical. Restless entrepreneurial guy. In fact, he had a good stable job at Texas Instruments as an electrical engineer, and he was pretty happy there. But one day in nineteen. One. He's managers assigned him to work on a new project, and it was something that rod believed would not work. And so he started to get frustrated basically was being told to go spend the next two years of my life being Mahindra of all and end up in failure. So at that moment rod started to talk to to close colleagues at Texas Instruments, Jim Harris and Bill Mirko, and basically said Paik, maybe we should leave we met and talked about how we were going to go start a company, and there were a lot of startup companies in California and Silicon Valley one of the first things we realized is g these guys are having fun. They're making a ton of money, and you know, they're not any smarter than we are. They just they're just out doing it themselves. There was also this awareness that something really big is going on in the personal computer market when I beam entered the market in August of nineteen eighty one we realized that that market was going to explode. And then what happened is fall Comdex came along. We went out to the conference and saw all of the companies and all of the things going on. It was just that.

Implementing first-ever global migration pact must involve public and private sector push
"This is Matt wells at UN news. Well, the private sector and civil society working in tandem, hold the biggest promise for making the first ever global compact on migration, a success for the countries who signed up, let's see opinion of topic Yussef the director of the Brookings Institution at Doha center in Qatar think tank focusing on this issue economic and political issues facing the Middle East more than one hundred and sixty governments adopted the non-binding packed at the two day conference in Marrakesh Morocco. Mr. Yussef who was a panelist there said helping migrants integrate into host communities need governments and businesses to work together. Speaking to Moustapha are Gamal in Marrakesh, Mr. Yussef explained how adoption of the compact boosts migrant rights around the world, today's dialogue focused on the role of partnerships and the role of innovations and translating a lot of the principals and the ideas contained in the pump and twenty -ality principles that emphasize. The economic empowerment of migrants that protection their safety the the need to gather information about flows about the numbers, the need to integrate them into society to the financial system into the training and education sectors. All of this cannot and will not be done by governments. It is too complex and too demanding a set of objectives and hints it is going to be the private sector and civil society. Whether it's nonprofits foundations community organizations. City governments all of them combined. And in fact, I would say they are already doing it. They're doing it. And a lot of my receiving countries for migrants, they're doing it in the field of employment training legal services healthcare. It's precisely those sets of initiatives partnerships and innovations in how we worked together to sort of the Meighan community that in my humble opinion, hold the biggest promise for what can be done after the adoption of this important compact are there any miss practices that would come to mind taken on by the private sector in regard to migraine financial inclusion of migrants, hyper an important area of interest and focus. It is precisely that technology developers working with startups in the financial. Services industry, and with other motor stab companies that are now offering solutions for migrants to become more integrated in the financial system to access banking accounts to be able to save and more importantly from the perspective of sending countries to able to also transmit remittances at at lower cost and to do this efficiently and to do it without all the traditional bureaucratic procedures, which either migrants are frightened bioch- don't have access to. So to the extent that the private sector is leading with innovations in the space of technology. They are already playing a bigger role than they should be encouraged and incentivize to do even more the private sector can advance their role further, you know, got chain, but us off communists, and trade unions and big large comp corporations that are employers who should. Adopt standards for worker safety fully income protection for non-discrimination and a host of things that will make migrants feel more. Welcome more protected and allow them to contribute, positively to the wellbeing not only of themselves and their families, but to their communities and to the countries that receive them in the countries that send them missile turkeys a few are based on the yes. It's known that the Gulf states in particular, the have this guarantor system, if how would that work now after the adoption of that global compact for migration, I think the adoption of the blowback comeback was further reinforced some of the very positive and promising initiatives that have been taken by a number of Gulf countries to liberalise a number of systems in place. That's regulate and tightly managed and maybe are seen as being overly burdensome for migrant workers in my humble opinion. Some of the initiatives already underway in number of countries to liberalise, the migration regime, and to to to prevent some of the practices that have become a a source of concern and criticism will be further reinforced countries will who have not adopted some of these initial steps. I would face now pressures to replicate what others have done and to do so in an orderly transparent way through legal processes, but we'll see a private sector. They're playing old and also a nongovernment sector, helping to disseminate information make would aware of their rights and the new system in place have been some also initiatives that have helped provide protections for workers incomes in a number of countries. He saw governmental let but they also have it acquired and have received the support of the private sector banks and financial services companies telecoms, for example, all of them. I think I think this Compaq by providing international legitimacy to migrant rights. Migrant needs will further incentivize governments and pushed them across the world. But especially in the countries that are were they are disproportionately represented, especially in the Gulf to do the right thing to move in the right direction and to complete the steps that that taken so far. So we've seen number of countries who refuse to come and sit at the table on the compact, what do you think of that? I think it's mixed but sense, given the polarization that migration as a phenomenon as a process as as I said about comes has created in a number of political context around the world right now just in America. But also in Europe, and in other developing countries, there is a backlash against no just globalization. But also the movement of of people now and given the emotions of right-wing political. Parties and their ascendants, and how they've contaminated political discussion on migration, it would only be natural that some governments will feel that elected hesitant or a fully find themselves against the objectives. And the aspirations of this compact, this might be temporary phenomena migration is has been around for a very long time. It will continue to be our round it will outlive. Many of the governments in place that have rejected this compact, and I think that extend that the world has come together. Now in the numbers in the strength and has adopted a set of very important principles and guidelines other countries will join ultimately at some point.
