"Exactly what we need and be efficient about it so we were working on merging onto an offer freeways and so what we had a truck driving around dallas going on and off every freeway exit and that allowed us to get exactly the data we needed rather than kind of hoping that it shows up in the data set we get and then finally on the third one around having conviction that the thing is safe enough. Well you just practically can't get enough miles right in the. Us someone dies in traffic accident about once every eighty five billion miles and so if you really want to have statistically interesting information about the host events you're not going to efficiently get that once you change the software or change the hardware in some way. Then it's all invalid and so for us. It's how'd you decompose. The problem one of the things. We've done it arose. We've kind of tapped into your. How does the energy industry do this. How does the defense industry do this. How does airspace do this. Bring those ideas together and use those types of approaches. Instead of just coping we can four forced to the right answer. And so i just wanna make sure i understand this the right way. So if i'm at tesla. And i'm pursuing this brute force approach and there's a problem that comes up or we discover and so then i fix it right yeah. I don't really know that. I fixed until i'm testing it out in the world right if your argument is we've driven a bazillion miles. The questions were what were you doing. Was this version of software or was it some other version of software which had a bunch of changes in it. And you really know that. Those changes didn't invalidates the previous miles and so without actually having a decomposition under safety case model. We're able to say okay. We understand how this influences different parts of the safety argument. You're gonna have a hard time with that Not all human drivers are the best at it right. yeah so what. Kind of a standard shouldn't autonomous vehicle have like is equal to the average human. Is it have to be better than human. Yeah i think this is actually one of the really nuanced points right so the way we think about it is. We shouldn't be creating unreasonable. Risk on the road. This is the standard when the department transportation thinks about a new technology coming to market. Is that you're always trading risk that if we really wanted the roads to be safe we would ban cars from them and the challenge of course then is that the roads are not super useful. And you can't get anywhere efficiently so when we build a safety case it's going to be do. We think we're creating unreasonable. Risk on the road in a broadway if there's any mishap on the road for any autonomous vehicle that threatens your brand and like the future of this whole industry in a certain way. Isn't it like you can be careful but if some of the other folks have things that don't work well it makes it harder for you. It makes it like anything right. This is an emerging technology and so people don't yet understand the different parts so heart of what we've been doing is trying to explain to the public to the regulators. The differences between technologies engineer to do the whole driving task and one that's engineered to support a human driving right and we think that's a really important distinction we've had those conversations with the regulators and with the government. We helped found an organization called pave. Which is out there helping provide education and trying to demystify this. There's only so much we can control so let's focus on what we can do. Well let's trust people to be thoughtful and smart out there so you previously worked at waymo at alphabet. Self-driving unique help started up in fact what differentiates aurora from waymo from competitors like crews which gem stake in argo which volkswagen has backed what makes aurora different when i think about aurora one things. It's just the experience our team has and the fact that we've brought experts together from some of these other organizations where really able to synthesize those experiences into new approaches and new technology. And i think another is our approach to partnerships from day one. We've had a value of focus. Do the thing that we think we can do. Best in world and that matters because we're solving this really hard problem. It also means that we don't want to go and build the car and we don't want to go build uber or the logistics network. We wanna go partner with these companies. That are incredibly complicated. Incredibly successful and if we can do our part of bringing the driver and somebody else can bring the vehicle and others can bring the network that uses those vehicles. Then we'll be able to run faster. And i think that approach is is unique relative to what we see others doing out there. And then we're independent. The companies you mentioned crews some waymo and argo. These are all part of a mothership. And that's powerful because you have synergies and connections that come from that but it also means that you're the other bet you're the other thing that's going on and your business model. You approach to solving. The problem is going to be biased by the interests of the larger entity so for us. We're leading the market and trucking. And if you think about cruise well. We don't think they're doing that. Because general motors doesn't make big trucks. Google is an incredible company. But they're really a consumer centric company. So they're kind of mental focus is always going to be on kind of a consumer facing brand. That's going to look like a ride hailing service. So you're is this a different way to look at ecosystem and play in it. See you mentioned that. You're focusing on coming to market. I with a trucking related product. Before ride hailing so. Why where does that decision come from. We look at trucking. There are few reasons why we think it's exciting one. Is we think we have some pretty differentiated technology that allows us to solve this problem. Specially so the lighter technology we're developing house our first light light or allows us to see further down the road. And when you think about driving a big truck at high speed having that integrated camera light. Long-range sensing is super important to the next is really a pure business reason. Trucking about a seven hundred billion dollar industry in the us ride hailing. It's about a thirty five billion dollar industry so it's just a much bigger market to go play.

"Our life like normal pediatrician. Dr. Sarah, the host asked. Why would you take that chance? It is a weeks long, sometimes inconvenience in your family for one child to catch Covid. Because all the other families family members are exposed and so then potentially can't work. When Washington was reopened. June 30th. It gave a lot of parents of false sense of security.

Covid has a grip on us once again, and I see the light at the end of the tunnel of the pandemic, But we are not through the tunnel yet. We have one big, cold and flu season. That's about to start in a couple months. I think that is the end of the tunnel. The advice is pretty straightforward, and you've heard most of it before. But when it comes to your unvaccinated kids the best way to keep them safe, as have them wash their hands often. Avoid large groups and always wear a mask when indoors outside of the home. Speaking of that mask, I've seen two ear infections in the last 15 months, and I typically see two per date. During cold and flu season, so the masking and the hand washing in the distancing Regardless of the concerns about Covid made a huge difference.

"Eastern time on Saturday there before Once the show is fed out live all of our 424 affiliates across the nation. So we mentioned last hour that new travel poles were up on the website. We hope you'll check them out and vote will share the results with you next week, but we've got over seven minutes. So let's get back to some news, Mary All right. Sounds good. So I'm going to start with something that really jumped out. So American Airlines we fly American a lot. They've Historically had a really strong presence in a lot of hubs around the United States, but not so strong in the Northeast. Well, that is going to change their partnering with jet blue that was announced this week. This is going to include the New York area and Boston and customers are going to be able to use their frequent flyer rewards program on either carrier. They can book single itineraries. What do you guys think of that merge? I'm all for. I'm all for any airlines that, you know. Allow us to use other people's miles on their airline. Yeah, they're not joining their one World Alliance. That's something. For example, on the West Coast. I know American airlines is doing this with Alaska and Alaska is joining. So that's something I'd like to see. Especially because I know we have the concierge key, and it would be nice to be able to fly me. Yeah, on JetBlue. But, you know, listen, I think it's good for the airlines, and it's gonna get a squeeze for Delta. Absolutely another with a story to follow, and Alaska used to be paired with felt up in the Pacific Northwest, and they kept shooting. So now Alaska's gone over the American side. Well, absolutely there Anyone so really had anything you want throughout her? Well, yeah, we talked. I think a couple weeks ago about Pakistan Airlines to discovering that many of its pilots hadn't really passed their flying Ted by that's tests that they were either cheating on them. They had somebody else. Take the test for them, for goodness sake. Well this week, the U. S Department Transportation suspended Pakistan's Ah Authorization to operate Teo to any American destinations. So did the U. K. And so did the U. About 150 Pakistan Airlines pilots have been grounded, but some people in fact, some reports of Pakistan says money is 240 pilots where You were really qualified to be flying big commercial jets. I mean, that is what that actually really wonder again. I mean, come on, who is asleep at the switch with that one? I mean, that's a big deal. Okay? Think. Yeah. Yeah, I just said that all those percentage. I mean, I hope when there was a co pilot, one of the two in the cockpit actually knew how to fly a plane. You know what I mean, One would hope would hope but again, whatever. You know, but there's a lot of head scratchers out there. Here here something right now. So a few weeks ago, remember your You know what you're talking about The airlines. They're in the cheating. Well, remember when I brought up a few weeks ago that I didn't really understand what a pandemic time that New Jersey is raising the toll so significant on all their roadways, And this is not the time, you know, met memo to the governor of New Jersey. Not the time to be raising tolls, but that's what they're going to do. Starting in September. Another thing I saw this week. We were talking last night about cruising. Well, you know, and I just don't get this key West is looking to ban cruise ships because of the Corona virus. Obviously, clearly, they're not going right now There's a group there called Key West citizens for safer cleaner ships, and they're calling for the changes, but the reason I bring it up I don't understand it. Last year, nearly 400 cruise ships carrying over a 1,000,000 people is like 1.2 million passengers visited Key West. It is such an important Economic engine for that area, and they're already trying to recover from hurricane so if they ban that I it makes you scratch. Your butt is like the first companies have to say about that. I can't even I don't know, but I mean the crew's first of all the cruise ships aren't sailing. So how did they know whether they're gonna be cleaner? Well, there's 2021 name that they want to know if I wasn't clear on that. I probably so they're basically saying, no matter what they're not, we're still going to be worried about them, no matter what. And they just feel that they don't want the cruise ships They're using, in my opinion there, using this as an opportunity to push the agenda that they want to avoid The clearly heard about this in in Venice and so forth. Well in key West, that's kind of it's kind of, you know, a subset of the same kind of argument. Right? Right, right? Yeah. Well, Delta lost $5.7 billion in the second quarter. There's a number that's hard to get your head around. No wonder American and Delta and United all swell Americans, particularly American and United was saying there I'd be laying off literally thousands employees at the end of September if the government doesn't give more money to keep them employed. Well, that's another way to see a lot of that coming in October with if the money is art, don't continue. We have something good world travel insurance We can kind of shared with us this week. Yeah, we can all chat about this, So they have started a campaign since you know we do want to get people back travelling, but doing it safely and it's going to take some time to boost confidence and all of that. They've got a campaign going. What should you do when you travel and some of these things, my common sense for common sense. But you know what Sometimes that's often are often the very comments so Number one thing when you travel where reusable face covering. Okay, easy like washing. Sanitize your hands. Of course. That's the most important thing from every year that I've been hearing the face mask important, but the reality is touching in your hands. So it's some of these other things that I do think or even more pertinent today. Go ahead. I'll go through three through six on this, and you can also just maintain physical distance thing. I think we all want to do that. Look, you're traveling activities online or over the phone important that part right there. As much as you can do in advance.

U.S. officials confident two Iranian missiles hit Ukrainian plane

"It appears now that in Ronnie and missile hit the Ukrainian airliner that went down after take off from Tehran this week all hundred and seventy six people on board died many of them Canadian citizens British Australian and and Canadian prime minister say the intelligence is pointing to Iran here's Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau the evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface to air missile this may well have been an intention I want to start interjecting north them who's been following the story hijacking morning David so true though the first leader to come out and and say this definitively what what what exactly is he saying in terms of what he's seen well it wasn't specific about what evidence there is but he said that intelligence from various sources and that includes Canada's own intelligence agency indicates that the Ukrainian airliner was brought down by a surface to air missile shortly after takeoff from Toronto International Airport the US and other nations were closely monitoring around for missile launchers on the night of the crash using satellites and most likely saw the launch of an anti aircraft missile Ukrainian president Vladimir salen ski said the possibility that the plane had been hit by a missile can't be ruled out but it still hasn't been confirmed and he's asked the US and other western nations to release any evidence they have that the Ukrainian aircraft had been shut down and and of course we've seen video heard eye witnesses saying this plane was was just engulfed in flames shortly after it took off how is it run explaining this at this point well running officials came out quickly and said it was a mechanical failure and David they've stuck with that explanation since you know this was met with widespread skepticism first of all the crusher just happened there had even been an investigation in aviation analysts say a mechanical failure wouldn't have said a whole airplane on fire so quickly also this is a three year old plane but around said that the idea that it was hit by an Iranian missile was psychological warfare well a lot of questions about whether the Iranians are actually gonna allow for investigators to come in to Iran on to the crash site and what where do things stand right now all right now about forty five Ukrainian investigators are already in a run and obviously Ronnie investigators are on the ground as well late last night your own in government sent out an official notice about the crash and what that does is it triggers the involvement of other countries in the investigation and that will include the U. S. national transportation safety board as well as bowling I remember this was a Boeing aircraft but this is where it gets tricky because the US has sanctions on Iran in US law restricts any travel to around or any sharing of information in fact the NTSB cannot communicate directly with the Iranians so with the M. P. S. in NTSB or bowling representatives go to Ron will have to be okayed by the state department and or the treasury department and what about the the the black box that is always so important in in every crash like this I would never treat a black box you know the rainy and say that they'll let the U. S. on to the site but if I do you know they're saying that they will not give the U. S. a black box because they don't they don't trust what the the Americans are going to do with that frankly so there's a lot of work ahead David hi Jackie thank you reporting really appreciate it thanks David centers Jackie north and I want to turn now to someone very familiar with crash investigations like this it's Mary Schiavo she is the former inspector general of the U. S. department transportation on Skype this morning thanks for being here good good to be with you thank you I want to just pick up on on what Jackie was talking about the very end there Iran saying that if the U. S. gets this black box they they might read things into it they might interpret it differently is that how black boxes work well it can be yes it will there's couple layers here first of all when you download the black box it's very important to use a black box flammable lab that is capable of downloading the information that the boxes won't be damaged in the download in terms of damaging the information stored there on and that you do a good download that depends upon the capabilities of the lab rand hasn't been known to have such a lab that you literally can have a lab such as this you know you can buy it from contractors you can have it delivered or you could contract with Canada France Great Britain Australia they all have great labs and I'm sure would help the second part comes on the data interpretation okay Iran has said that they will make the data public now the actual voices if there are any voices on the CD are you know after that whatever happened happened usually they just do a transcript of the C. B. R. so you don't hear the person's voices you know in distress in their last moments of life but I ran a said they're going to make this all public and they're gonna posted on their public docket which is exactly how the NTSB and other aviation nations do it so at that point the world can interpret what the black boxes have determined hand that the old what what do you think we might learn that would clear this up I mean you have western officials saying this is clearly that what they see as a missile strike in a run saying that's impossible well at you know and and sadly the world has had many experiences with this most recently the shoot down of MH seventeen year over Ukraine and the way you rule out mechanical failures obviously look at the black box data the flight data recorder and see if there was nothing wrong with the plane they I'm sure they already were reviewed what's called the ACARS data the automated messages from the plane itself about for our for residue from explosives examine the pieces of the wreckage for explosive residue the signature of the missile is very different from exploding aviation fuel for example so you can tell what kind of explosion at once and the human remains will also contain or can also contain explosive residue so that you you are you convinced that there will be a moment when the world can say with with certainty that this may have been a mess on that are wrong won't be able to get away with denying it or or as you mentioned the Ukrainian press over Ukraine that this could be an open question that that we might never clear up well I think the world is going to know you know soon I think most nations will close their intelligence center satellite viewings and will make it pretty clear in the case of MH seventeen obviously were Russia to this day he denies that it was a Russian missile or that that Russians temperatures had anything to do with it and the funny thing about mo shoot down instances other than when a notable exception is when the United States shot down an Iranian a civilian jetliner by mistake United States admitted its mistake and pay damages most shoot down cases go on the record on the books forever as saying that the the entity that shot it down denies it so the world will pass judgment and will will you know the facts will will soon come out and it will seem obvious to the world but perpetrators tendon in my these things in

This should sound familiar controversy over government officials using personal E mail accounts and messaging apps to conduct official business.

The head of the house oversight committee says the lawyer for both Kushner AMI vodka Trump told the committee that the two of them have used personal communication tools for work NPR's. Tim Mack joins us now. Hey, Tim hitter. So we should note that this information is coming from a democrat that committee, chairman Elijah Cummings. What does exactly what Cummings is saying here? Okay. So the house oversight committee head a meeting with Kushner's lawyer Abbe Lowell in December and says that during this meeting the attorney confirmed that Kushner has used and continues to use what's app as part of his official duties in the White House. That's the communications AP. When asked if Kushner communicated with foreign leaders using WhatsApp law simply said that Kushner, quote, head communications with people outside the United States. And when asked if classified information was ever discussed using the app Kushner's lawyer simply said, quote, that's above my pay grade, not exactly answering the question the law requires that senior officials like Jared Kushner preserved their official communication's his lawyer said that he is in compliance with the law indus-, oh by taking screen shots of his what's up conversations and sending them to his White House E mail or to the national Security Council but law contents he has never confirmed any conversation between Kushner and foreign leaders. Okay. So that's the Kushner story what about others in the White House like Ivanka Trump? So according to Cummings law also told the house oversight committee that Ivanka Trump gets work emails on her private account, and that she doesn't Ford those emails to our official count unless she response to it her turning now. Now says that he was referring to earlier emails to a personal account and stress that she now follows proper record keeping rules. The committee also claims in another situation to have evidence showing that KT McFarland the former deputy national security adviser used a personal AL dot com. Email address to talk about the transfer of sensitive nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia McFarland was apparently talking to a personal friend of President Trump's while working on that issue and Steve Bannon, he's the former White House chief strategist he also received an Email about this Saudi nuclear plan through his personal Email account all these allegations here sound a lot like the criticism Republicans leveled against Hillary Clinton for using a private Email server when she was secretary of state how fair is it to compare the situation with Clinton to this these situations here is that the same law that governs both of these situations..
