It's brought to you by the strength of the United States military. We honor our veterans because they have earned that honor. The question is, though, are we ready for what is coming next? There is a mass destabilization event happening worldwide right now. The media is too worried focusing on what are they focusing on at The New York Times here. I've even looked at it yet today. What is The New York Times looking at right now? They're focused on the Amazon jungle today. That's the front page of The New York Times. Also on Joe Biden. But there's something deeper happening.

The so called VR IC nations will take part in a 2022 edition of the international army games organized by Russia and hosted by several countries since its inception in 2015.

The biggest change is the big ten point two five inch touchscreen now becoming standard. The entry level trim is nine hundred dollars more expensive. It's now thirty nine. Nine ninety thirty nine and the premium version is forty four six fifty so the spectrum the same the us only gets the big battery version. We get two choices of battery. Sixty four kilowatt hour battery. Api range two three nine. That's miles of course. Three hundred ninety five kilometers one hundred and fifty kilowatt. Electric motor very similar to the hyundai. Kona if they're doing is bringing us back. I think in line with the twenty twenty two Kona which had for three months the the new revised face. Kinda as i've mentioned a few times. I really really liked it for a compromise. Cow in other words account bill for multiple powertrains really good wi fi loved it as well should buy one absolutely by one but i said well. Let's look at some other options. I as well interesting reaction to this story Somebody i so online said the two three years ago. That wasn't a bad price. You know thirty nine full entry level trim but now the bolt is cheaper. The leaf is at least ten grand like fifteen grand cheaper now. Lots more competition and the id four as well so somebody saying that. The full has arrived. And the seventy seven kilowatt hour battery to wheel drive Id four has a thirteen kilowatt hour. Pack that's larger fifty kilometers more. Wwl tv range has better. Ac charging i thought that the new kate kona and the new narrow were eleven kilowatt ac. But if not you know the four has if you get three phase eleven kilowatt. Ac charging Sunny a lot faster dc fast charging than the inara bigger cargo area more passenger space and in europe. The id four is only four and a half grand will forty thousand euros more than the narrow sixty kilowatt hour so if you apply that pricing to the us should be thirty five thousand dollars. Pre incentives should be thirty five to thirty six thousand dollars pre incentives key getting to that limit on the federal tax credit which does bring below thirty k. Of course the four as well so it's is apples for apples and i see what they mean by that. That is a premium price for the narrow. Which is still a great ebay.

By one of the people He was a nobel prize winner by the way akiro yoshino. He's a professor. He's the winner of the twenty nineteen nobel prize for chemistry for his work on lithium ion batteries and he can take credit for the upheaval in the automative industry. Lithium-ion batteries In the first serious competition in a century to fossil fuels now the honorary fellow. Japanese chemical firm has been talking about electric vehicles and batteries. He has an ax to grind. So i think he's just a knowledgeable gentleman who is happy to share his thoughts two major areas of innovation. He says our key in lithium ion batteries he said one would be the new. Cathode materials and ano- materials. The second one would be the system where the electric vehicle is used in other words how people use electric vehicles how they charge them and how he discharged them. He said it's the nobel prize when he's it. With fuel cells hydrogen vehicles there are challenges on the technology and the costs but you can overcome them. If you think about the long term to twenty fifty autonomous shed vehicles are gonna come about. Hypothetically an autonomous vehicle could be run with petrol engine it could be electric and it could be fuel-cell it doesn't matter what the power sources but it does. Need autonomous vehicles need to replenish the energy. Somehow if the vehicle can't do that automatically without human intervention the system is meaningless. The same thing would be true for petrol or hydrogen right now. The automotive industry is thinking about how to invest in the future of mobility at the same time the. It industry is thinking about the future of my ability and somewhere sometime the also and it industries. That's going to be a convergence for the future of mobility.

Jay leno is reviewing the twenty twenty two mercedes benz e q has. I love jay leno. Clearly a car guy. And you know if you're watching a youtube video cal lecarr guy so he's passionate about costs it can be. It can be whatever but he loves his vase and his and his petrol stuff as well. But i'll just say to begin with. I watched this video. I wouldn't have been surprised. If it was sponsored content. He was so a few sive about the mercedes. Benz e q had somebody from mercedes-benz on asking them softball questions. I don i i mean. They gave him a car to drive for a week. I wouldn't be surprised if that gave mccarthy kate because he was like this is just a half hour at ish from mercedes-benz he clearly says amazing things. About this car he got the mercedes benz e to drive around in In the local area he was impressed by the ease of use effortless. It was to drive. He talked about the vibration. The sense of ultimate luxury At one point. Jay says it's almost as if you're watching a video of the outside world because it's so quiet inside and it's just outside. Passersby is interesting. What you want from jay is to lift up the bonnet to lift up the boot and the flaps and to have a good old knows around. What what's this doing here like what's that why did you if you've got the designer for mercedes. Why did you why they're no cameras. Va miraz and make mercedes say well. Us laws won't allow it but outside of the us. Yeah we'll have cameras. It's better for the drag like any unappealing the polling to it in the show nights you watch it. I enjoyed it. i love it. I love jay but there was no clear he loves the car. He was abusive. A at that next. We'll talk about vauxhall. Well here i say vauxhall in europe you'd say opel vauxhall opel's latest electric van. The combo e has just gone on sale in the uk completing the phones lineup of electric commercial vehicles. The kumbo a starts at twenty five thousand pounds now. That doesn't include. Vat because of course businesses if you're vat registered you can claim back the vat from her majesty's customs including the government's plugging cochran as well. Gee to hit showrooms later this year the combo e brings the electric range of two hundred hundred seventy one miles rather i should say fifty kilowatt hour battery. Look you know the school. This is exactly the same spec. All of that commercial vehicles is solid as a rock fifty kilowatt hour battery hundred kilowatt. Motor hundred kilowatt. Dc charging that means you're full in thirty minutes business uses can get zero benefiting kind tax Something that we haven't really explored on this podcast benefit in kind taxes. One of those things that the the you can do through legislation to incentivize people to go. Ev hasn't gotta just be money off. The price of the cost for instance. Let me explain if a business owns a car and its employees. Get use of that personal Moving around then there's a tax to pay because it's a benefit right so we have to pay income tax on that and that's pretty onerous. That's why company 'cause a less popular here than they used to be. But the government's zero free days. Now it's one percent of the minute and it's two percent well. Two percent of the p eleven devalue it to the like the purchase price basically. Let me say that. So you think you'll two percent value of the car so this next year from twenty twenty two so you take a car. That is in theory. Let's just say forty grand. Okay i know eve as can be more. Okay say fifty grand. It's two percent of that. That is a thousand pounds. that's the rateable taxable value. Then you apply your personal tax rate. So again i won't go into a you know a long story about our tax rates it can be twenty or forty or forty five percent so you are in the twenty percent tax bracket than twenty percent of the thousand pound values at two hundred hundred. Yeah you have to pay extra for the use of that. And that's just that's just tax to the government for having use of a company com- that makes driving a company Very very attractive but if it's a commercial vehicle it's zero percent benefit in kind tax. They got that's my proof. Not i'm out. I forget this global podcast and seventy people. Listening around the world will be like what's he talking about so that you've got that's an explainer but if you will country does something similar or it's just one of the ways of not just sticking money on you know off. The price of the cop has lots of little tools that regulators and governments can do the actually. Because this podcast go. oh man. This is a massive digression. This podcast is a limited company. It's a business now. I started off making a few pounds. I'm so just didn't redo anything with it but it was making hundreds of pounds a month. I'm like okay well now. I have to declare that. Obviously you have to be within the the law and so i had to go back and declare everything and we set up as a limited company. Eventually which means it is only legal entity and it does make a small profit. Every i don't take a salary clearly the is not enough to pay my to completely live off but it does wash its face. Pays the bills et cetera So yeah this podcast could in theory own car and then i could drive that podcast car but i would personally have to pay some extra money in my income tax every year. will the combo yvonne from vauxhall or opel in europe can be a panel van.

The Truth and The "Big Lie" - Know What You're Being Told
"What is the difference between the truth and a lie. We all know that right. Most of us were talked by our parents and teachers are friends and relatives to tell the truth when we are young and so for the most part. We did what we were told. But have you heard of quote unquote the big lie here. We have a definition in wikipedia of the big lie. The big lie is a gross distortion and misrepresentation of the truth used especially as a propaganda technique on the show truth over news. I found that the term the big lie was utilized in the book. Nineteen eighty-four an overarching strategy to turn the truth upside down. And if you haven't read the book. Nineteen eighty four by george orwell high recommend highly examples of this are wars peace freedom is slavery and ignorance is slavery controlling the flow of information would be a recent example of the big lie in hitler's book. Mein kampf my struggle. He originates the idea of the big lie quote. The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is born in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over persistent to the first and most important requirement in quote so we know from this book that for the big lie to work we need repetition and what happens over time hearing that big lie again and again we start to believe the lie to be the truth on the metro dot. Co dot uk website. I've found this about the big lie. The big lie is also termed the illusory truth effect. It is the idea that if you repeat something often enough people will slowly start to believe it's true. A new study has revealed that the illusory truth effect or the big lie is much stronger than we imagined because it turns out that. Even if a person has prior knowledge disproving ally. They're being told they'll still believe the lie. If it's repeated enough

It's a serious step for the company Just months ahead of the market launch of the all won t the truck and the all one s as well as a little bit late up river owners leads to just plug in. That's it so if you're arabian owner at both of these on the dc fast charging that work and on the way points turn up plugging walkaway tesla network. Ask as exactly the way. It should be plug in charge trying to do that. But that has been teething problems so this is going to be riven. Cars rivi software rivi in charges. Like we know the game plan right. You've you've seen tesla do that. Game play so it should just work. There's nothing to get in the way. No membership cards. No apps the first stations. The first dc fast charging stations are going to be two hundred kilowatts woo. Vats is fast but ribian has plans though. Be eventually three hundred kilowatts and beyond says see nets with the truck the all won t the pickup and the suv owners will fill their battery packs for the hundred and forty miles of range in twenty minutes. That's wonderful like the adventure network riven owners will be able to charge automatically by pulling up plugging in to the white points as well the public if you nocerino and you can use the slower ones but on the a c charging you'll to jump through a few more hoops but they wouldn't say what that is. Okay let's run the numbers all these claims hundred sites three and a half thousand. Dc foss charges. Let's just forget the fact that the hardware is going to be signed me expensive. They got they got some money in the bank can probably afford it. So they're gonna put them in by the end of two thousand twenty three. They insist right. So let's say they start installing on the first of april and no. This is an april fools joke that gives them thirteen three months through the end of twenty twenty three which is no time at all to install three and a half thousand dc fast chargers at six hundred sites that is eighteen sites per month starting basically a day and every month eighteen sites well include working days. Monday to friday is a site a day. Dc false charging site every single day for the next two years and nine months is not going to happen. Well you decide. Permiting is a nightmare. Getting 'electricity can be a nightmare waiting for the permits for high-powered upgrades to the local grid to under kilowatt charging stations alone. Three hundred kilowatt charging steaks and be six six of these in a row installing megawatts of power. That's not easy. It's expensive right but that got some money. We'll put the money inside. I takes a long time to get the bureaucracy done for that anyway. Like i say one of them a day from april. Okay well i always try and be positive on this podcast. So i'll leave you to put that one together. Oh right let's talk about uk. Cutting subsidies like i say i try to be positive emotional as many positive spin to this story.

It's now two and a half thousand pounds. As of yesterday on thursday everybody woke up. The announcement was early in the morning. The times newspaper published at one minute past midnight and before the government announcements if somebody had been tipping off the times newspaper puts a true But everybody woke up to this news. But i mean everybody woke up the news so the government of reduced it from three grind two two and a half grand which is not the end of the world. It's five hundred pounds. It's it's a lot of money but daily you can deal with that. But they've reduced the threshold from cows that a fifty thousand pounds r. p so. That's gone down to thirty five thousand recommended retail price retail price. The recommended retail price study. Five grand has to be the call as it stands with a you know with its powertrain. You can't make you. You can't add options. Which would significantly increase the powertrain afterwards. For instance you have. That's an option so that has to be the price of the car. Well that's just immediately wiped out every tesla on sale. Because i starts at forty grand in this country and effectively. It changes the buying process overnight for so many families and hardworking people putting their finances in place the measures the government say have been taken to insure funding lasts longer as part of money and actually a few people can access it. It lasts longer. Well i guess that is logical. The fifty thousand pound price cap has been lowered to thirty five thousand pounds because high priced vehicles a typically bought by buyers. Who can afford they say without taxpayer. Money calls now excluded the testimony three driven by our own transport secretary grunt shops bolt. One recently would have enjoyed the money off the car because he bought a model three several times. Last year the model three was britain's best-selling in the monthly rent rankings.

Electric technology is more expensive than conventional engines and incentives are essential to make these vehicles affordable to the customer cutting the grunt and eligibility moves the uk further behind other markets which are increasing support. Making it more difficult for the uk to get supply. This sends the wrong message to the customer especially private customers and to an industry challenge to meet the gum governments ambition to be a world leader in the transition to zero emission mobility and quote Yeah this in points. In the i really agree with with him on so the five hundred pounds less is an inconvenience. But you can deal with that. Going from fifty to thirty five thousand pounds for the threshold is a really big deal. My biggest problem with this was no warning now all present the opposite case. If you do warn people in three months time the guard is going down and completely going for anything over thirty five then. People can game the system. You'd be getting people flooding orders that they're not gonna then fulfill for you know a reasonable period of time like lodge fleet autism and things just getting them in the system and putting them through so and that can actually have an adverse effect because all of a sudden you get huge strain on the system as people try and get in before deadline so that would be i. Guess the argument. If i'm trying to i'm trying to present all sides trying to walk in everybody's shoes of this argument but it's a really disrespectful way to treat hardworking people after a terrible kobe year to just have no respect for that the way that they plan tight family finances. And i'm talking about families here because 'cause they're buying Vos cars the id for the go to any act of kona. The key enero. These are not luxury. 'cause the company direct is a driving on. You know big fat salaries taking the mickey out of the system right so it was the no notice thing that bothered me more than anything else. And i think that's just a pretty terrible white to to treat people Ford of great britain champion. Graham whole said and i quote it's disappointing not conducive to supporting zero emissions future. The wheel desire end quote and the point of the car industry. As well global companies were having to have conversations around the boardroom table urgently saying well we've got to change at websites app pricing all of the dealer information the pdf now after immediately inconveniencing the business with no not zero noses. Ev's are in a limited supply globally. How many of those do you think will be diverted now to the uk. I mean we right hand drive already so they have to do special runs to make calls for us. How inclined do you think. Global com is on now to go out of their way to supply the uk when the uk clearly doesn't give a toss about them. Sorry to bring negative. Let me present the alternative. The government stating the number of available vs with a price below thirty five grand has actually gone up by fifty percent since twenty nine teen. Well yeah if you wanna talk percentages if that were to on sale now there's three fifty percent increase vans get even harder. Hit by won't get into that. Now of the vans and commercial vehicles are a bit more of a niche. But they've been actually even harder hit with. I'm steve foul whose the editor in chief of all to express says the government kicks the car industry and cobb is squarely in the guts. Slashing the plugging grant and lowering. The limit is reduced ludicrous. I'm so angry. I thought it was april first. Bad bad move quote I tweeted having seen tesla's reaction if anyone buying a tesla in the next twelve days. Tesla have guaranteed to cover the car garage at least until the end of the month. They're doing the right thing by their customers to go. Look we will. All call on is by this book. Tesla by the end of the month and we'll cover the government bits of it but not from the first of april. An example of a family car caught out by the overnight. Change is the day. I on now the irony not the new five at the end via the the car called the is not an expensive fatcats luxury car. It's very much an ordinary family car. This to specs is the premium the premium the premium. Yesterday was thirty one thousand pounds. Well that just got a five hundred pound grunt cuts now. It's one and a half thousand pounds a guy it's five hundred pounds more not ideal monthly payments you do with the premium. Sat version of the car. Yes that cost thirty three grand but because the pay is just about thirty five this now zero grown available so that kershaw had three thousand pounds price increase to thirty six thousand pounds and that car is not worth thirty. Six thousand pounds again. Let me present. Another point of view foley. Some people saying that the car manufacturers selling that thirty six thirty seven thirty eight thousand pound price range will magically overnight reduce all of their prices to thirty four nine nine five to come in just under the ground. Think i'm not sure too. Many of them have two three four grand margin they can just slash overnights. I will white and see what happens to pricing. Look you can still buy a mini. An mg. Five m. g. s. e. via at five hundred elif a marker an e to. I wait a zoe. A small battery kona an id. Three prospect the coarser e also available all with the ground. Let's end on a positive note next. We'll talk about oh and actually many of my listeners in the uk. And i don't have rent so let's open this up to discussion. What do you think what's a good way to incentivize. Is it to offer discounts. The point of purchase. Is it better to just give people free access to parking and bus lanes taxi lanes and things we also don't pay vehicle excise duty otherwise known as road tax which is hundreds of pounds a year at zero on tv. So that's another benefit. I forget all the time. Because i don pay navy. What's the best incentive for spies sellers. Like there's no there's no perfect solution. The solution we've got is not perfect. I've just shown you for the last five minutes by chalking brown they subject. If you try and do anything with this was going to be a downside and once you've started an incentive. It's very hard to take away without totally mucking with marketplace's but i'm the economist love to hate from your email address. Hello even use daily dot com. Maybe a future question of the week. Okay let's move on and talk about amazon's new electric vehicle vans built by riven now deployed in san francisco via so cute like big honda. Big round headlights on the look so cool. Online retailer amazon is testing out. they're fully electric delivery. Vans in san francisco built by the amazon black company riven. Deploying them in san francisco is the second west coast city. That amazon is testing them. In following deployments in la in february's has few car website now. The current fleets of vehicles was built at ravines plymouth michigan michigan studios and they do one hundred and fifty miles a day on a single charge. That is plenty for typical amazon delivery. Route next audi in the news audi will fill the gap between the q four each. That's not even out yet. But the upcoming key for each ron and the eight-run already in showrooms that's a big gap between those two cars. Each one is.

The best bits and catch the best bits for keeping on the walls or wherever. I'm we've had a question in from twitter which is very cool from a lady called rebecca. And she's asking us. Where should people go to get. Hold of the right kind of mask vocabulary. Excellent questions all right. So fiction is out there. Those people with oxford al subscription. Of course. there's an online version available. Here's a plug for something. That is entirely free for anyone to load off my website. A vocabulary list. I've only done it for the primary curriculum if anyone's interested. Let me know what i can do. A second one at some point but a basically went through the national curriculum the two thousand fourteen version with the current version and and picked out all the new vocabulary vocabulary that that is introduced in each year group. One to six. At the time. I wrote the early years. Fallacious age was still being finalized. It was still in consultation so i haven't done anything around that yet. Incidentally early as teachers all know the importance of language describing languages everything because it allows them to have a hook to make sense of things is the primary vocabulary book is a pdf can be instantly downloaded and it's thinner so you just literally go to go to my website andris dot dot uk and at your search around. You'll find a primary vocabulary book. So that's one thing it doesn't know rebecca definitions. I'm so for definitions. You need to go to those online extremism things textbooks. They usually not infallible but textbooks are usually very good for explaining the names of op terms. Which just allow you to think things through really because the problem with masses. It's such an abstract idea. If i think cats cats you can can hold it you can but if i say double that's a really difficult thing to either draw or sale fake so so we have to kind of if you're in a pop or a little bit early. Yeah a little bit early for a double double pechiney double. So that's all the way awesome so final question relates to the most recent word report which came out in october and the focus of that report was looking at bridging the gap at transition and thinking about what it looks like to move from key to key stage. Three in terms of capital is something that i think is going to become more and more prevalent in our schools and something that we should be. Arming our kids with equipping them with the right. Toolkit to move from primary.
Interview With Ciaran McCrickard
"Today i am really thrilled. I am very happy to be talking with karen. Cricket karen is a as his website describes them a freelance photographer over in worthing in the uk specializing in architecture portrait and editorial work but to say that really does not do justice to his career at all. His work has been on the front page of every national newspaper in the uk. He has a portfolio of celebrities and public figures. That i think is the envy of anybody working in that field and most interesting for conversation. Today he has a brand new projects underway which is bright and colorful. And i'm not about to give away any more of it. Because i want. I want to hear it described from the author's own voice karen today how are you today. I'm good thank you scott. Thank you for coding tonky. Let me on the podcast. I really appreciate it. Well this is going to be a real pleasure. I have to ask because the news as recording this the uk is getting the first doses of the covid vaccine house. The mood over there. Is everybody pretty excited for this. A little skeptical. Yeah a real mixed bag. I think people are excited. But i think we're slightly skeptical simply because of the way. I think our government is handle it so far hasn't been will beating a world class so i think at the moment i think the government and riding on this vaccine in the final with us country have it. The people are the kind of nevada. They don't necessarily know where they're gonna abbott Trusted really. I think we're just gonna see how it goes is obviously the first day so we'll just say well. I hope it all works out better than anybody's expectations because photography as well as every other profession on the planet has been really affected by the lockdowns which brings me to to. Let's just jump in the deep end here. You have a project that is really interesting and really impressive called parks and no recreation thrown and before we get into it. We should tell everybody that your website. And i hope they go to. This sort of follow along is mcgregor. Photography dot co dot uk mcgregor m. c. c. r. I c. k. a. r. d. photography all one word dot co dot uk. And they can get to this project from the about page at the bottom. You've got linked to the latest editorial from the guardian. Which is this but there's also a separate site. I'm a cricket. Photography dot e set dot com slash parks to no recreation. So give it a shot folks. You're gonna find can't tell us what what is parks to no recreation will. It was born simply out of the pandemic under lockdown. Obviously the whole pandemic star raises heading january february. And then i know it's things starting to really slowdown in february with jobs dropping off. 'cause i do work in london and i do abroad. The that stuff abroad really dropped off after march but the stuff in london to fade away a bit and then obviously march the twenty fourth think it was came along and everything just disappeared and i think a lot of us were staring into an abyss. Really we didn't really know what was happening or what would happen in in the future. So once march twenty four th came in on are starting to think. I need to look for different things to do. I need to look about finding another way of bringing money subject to kids and wife allow allowable will kind of thing so i went out and i started. June speculative stuff. Mt beaches empty days. Mtpa the nice to after a couple of weeks to try and pushing these. These specs pitches to the newspapers. I wasn't getting anywhere. And i realized is because there was so many other photographers out. Who in the same boat because the country had shutdowns. There was no concerts. Politicians went moving. The royalty weren't moving around those no sports games to all those talk. I used to do that stuff. Had nothing to do so everyone was out doing the same thing so a couple of weeks. Anita do some different so driving around with my girls just exercise trying to get you know do anything. We could really to get out a house every day and exert. She won't matthias. Projects i started was single unwonted potomac and it was actually photographing oldest stuff. That people would clearing out of their houses and carriages loss because people were home all the time now they can coach their offices were board said they clean out the houses on the street for people to take and this ranged from absolute junk to stuff that you think well i can actually have the semi on home kind of thing so i start around photographing just driving around all this stuff that people would leave and that was great after a while i noticed that people only have a finite amount stuff and they were taking it and it was all around anymore. This is after a couple of weeks. It was all going on. I roy okay. Let's think about doing more empty stuff places. The arm inhabited anymore about football pitches. Tennis cool things like that. But they're all the same from above or any point the rule of saying some slightly different colors. So i think i think i did. I went to a crazy gulf. Cut range thing that name kills co two and it was usually close down. So i'm gonna see what it looks like from above so i got the trona look. Good it look nice. There was competition that was colors but it was. It was really really busy too. It was a crazy sensitive like dinosaurs volcanoes all this stuff kicking off in mobile. They look good. But i'm going to try something else. So i went round to my local park zone. Ikuta wall traffic control and got up and shot from higher up. So you can see everything and then i realized actually close. You got to the ground low. You went the more abstract it became. The battery looked

Today i believe yet from chisel hampton in october one hundred right here in our in minute. Stewart's home county of thanks for the question We we we went off on different tangents there so i hope you don't mind to what we just we try to. We try to win the debate and myself to have to have opinions ourselves. Stewart's a little bit more controversial than i am usually but Yeah i hope you've enjoyed us discuss your question today. And i say we we always try and relate this back on a local level so people you're listening in ourselves can actually look out a window say the environment is worth protecting and give a shit about and go out. They have induced me. How can we rely this. huge question. alice's asked us william to into an action that we can all take to make a difference to our local countryside environment community. When i was just i was just thinking of the word. Catalyst say we don't necessarily know what the catalyst for any conflict is and that's from the large scale down to the small scale. Whatever you wanna say fall of you drive. 'cause this is an action for you today full of you drive today. Go out in the car with the intention of just chilling out relaxing If somebody else you up they might have a bad day themselves. They might have not seen them. I've just been being aware that you were there though to your horn. Just just get on with it.

Energy Plan Launched by Tesla in the UK, Short Shorts Update
"Everybody Rob our here and today we are primarily talking about Tesla Energy Tesla has officially launched its energy service in the United Kingdom, and with that they've shared a lot of interesting details on their plans in that market. We then also have an update on delivery for Tesla's latest product or add. So starting off with Tessa Energy, tussle today, updated their website in the UK you can actually access this from I believe any country as long as you just go to the drop down and ginger location. So in the UK on Tesla's homepage there now, featuring a new product quote, the Tesla Energy plan designed for homes with solar and Power Wall. And Quote Tesla also has a nice little two minute video. They're sort of running through the entire process end to end. But basically what this energy plan does is utilized tussle power walls to create a virtual power plant in which Tesla will utilize their audit or software to manage energy storage levels in different distributed energy storage products such as the power wall. This adds value in a number of different ways, but I think the simplest way to understand it is to think of it as somewhat balancing the grid out Tesla can purchase energy when it's really cheap store it in the distributed network of power walls and then resell it when energy prices. Are High that's all managed in real time automatically by auditor software that helps balance out the grid and then tested profit from the differences in though selling prices. This is, of course, in addition to the normal benefits of having a power wall, which would be to store your renewable energy so that you can use that energy when your power production is not that high, and then of course, having backup energy in case of power outage, what that virtual power plant functionality enables is for tussle to partner with an energy retailer in this case, octopus energy in the UK to provide tuskers that have a power wall with a much cheaper energy plan. Than, they could get anywhere else tussle on the website says it can be up to seventy five percent cheaper for energy than any other available rate. So we're going to go into the details on that but I there are a couple of unique things we have to understand about the UK energy market, the first of which being the terminology. So in the UK essentially, each energy plan is known as a tariff I think generally, we think of tariff as being attacks, and here for the UK energy market, it does involve pricing, but it's broader than that. Basically, an energy tariff here is equivalent to saying an energy plan. So the tariff involves pricing. It involves whether you're power costs are fixed or variable your provider, the energy source that you're using whether that's renewable, -able or something else all of those details fit under what would be described as your energy tariff. So if we focus in on pricing, there are a couple of different charges. The first is what's known as a standing charge that is a daily fee they are paying basically for actively and UK power dot co dot UK says that the average staining charge for electricity in the UK is twenty point, five, eight pence per day twenty, point five pence is equivalent to twenty seven US sense. So that doesn't sound like a lot. But over the course of the year, that adds up to one hundred dollars on average. So that's the standing charge and there is a unit rate. So you're paying per kilowatt hour. Think we're operating used to that and on average that is fourteen point four pence per kilowatt hour sources vary on this, but it looks like the average home in the UK uses about four thousand kilowatt hours per year, which would lead to you `electricity costs five, hundred, seventy, six pounds per year. That's about seven hundred, fifty US dollars. So all in standing charge plus the actual payment for the electricity you're at about eight, hundred, fifty dollars per year and probably higher. If you have to charge electric vehicle. So with that context, let's look back at tussles energy plan and affect you. It says, what are the tariff details? Tesla says quote no standing charge on your bill, a twenty four, seven import rates of eight pence per kilowatt hour for current Tesla vehicle owners and eleven pence per kilowatt hour for non Tesla vehicle owners the lowest flat rate tariff available on the market as of October twenty twenty. So at eight pence per kilowatt hour and no standing charge over the course of the year at four thousand kilowatt hours you're looking at three hundred, twenty pounds or about four, hundred seventeen, which will, of course round. Up to four, hundred, twenty US dollars. So under that example, you're saving more than fifty percent more than four hundred dollars per year or about thirty five dollars a month remember though that's for the average around four thousand kilowatt hours. If you have an electric vehicle charging that, let's say that's double eight thousand kilowatt hours that should get you ten thousand fifteen thousand miles per year from your electric vehicle. Then your annual electricity costs go up to a little over twelve hundred pounds or about sixteen hundred US dollars under Tesla's energy plan that same amount of energy would cost about six hundred and forty pounds or about eight, hundred and thirty, five. US. Saving about seven hundred and sixty five dollars per year or sixty, five dollars per month so that all sounds great. The energy on this plan is all renewable but where the rub comes in as you have to actually by the power wall and in the UK that cost eight thousand pounds, that's a bit over ten thousand dollars. So if you're saving sixty five dollars per month while the payback period on that is about thirteen years. So on the surface, this looks pretty attractive and if you happen to already have power while. In the UK it seems like a no brainer. But unless I'm missing something on the math here, this is a complicated subject to me. It's not clear that this is something that everyone is immediately going to be scrambling to adopt where things get a little bit trickier to understand her on the math on is when we switched over from purchasing electricity actually selling electricity. So in the UK, there are a couple tariffs on that. There's a generation tariff and an export tariff.
"Back in Twenty Sixteen Semaj Arash had day job at the time I was working for a race equality charity but he always had an eye out for a story. The charity he was working for have been doing all kinds of research into the hostile environment an impact the government's immigration policy was having on various areas of life. Now, this was before the wind rush scandal broke said, it wasn't really much discussion going on about this. But Samir was interested in finding out more. At the end of two thousand sixteen. I started looking into data sharing agreements that been I. Think one that was nine about the time which was around the around healthcare data being shed with the heightened office. Then around the same time that was issue around education data. So the the people census essentially kind of being being shed potentially being used to target families because they had enrolled, they're in school. So we knew of some official organizations sharing information with. Authorities. But what about the please he wanted. So. I had a theory which was that. I wanted if victims of crime would be caught up in in this system as well. Man You police would work with immigration officials when handling the perpetrators of crime he wondered if the same was true for those who were victims of criminal acts, this was too big a topic to look into on his own after all he was working full-time in his day job. He needed help any new just who to contact. I'm Natalie blamer relaunch journalist. Nazli was working politics, dot co DOT UK and the powerful report about immigration authorities targeting people who are homeless. She hadn't spoken to Samir before, but his was a name she recognized. Followed the twitter and I think we've had a few interactions on twitter and it was shortly after I published The holiness story that he contacted me and said I'm looking into data share in between different organizations in the Home Office would like to. Do that with me and he explained he was he had two full time job and he was quite limited in how much she could do during the day. and. It was. It was it sounded really interested in it was. You know the areas that I was interested in. And so I agree very quickly and so Nutley and submit decided to start working together sharing tips divvying up the workload. We've naturally making calls during working hours and submitted digging away the data when he could we have a very good workmanship we've actually continued to work together since then really. Because I think we have different. Skill sets and. Different strengths the allow us to work together and sort of. US each of other's strengths are for things that we might found more tricky. Their first port of call was to draft some freedom of information requests. They wanted to ask the police if and when they worked with immigration officials. So we sent off some a couple of freedom. Of Information Requests one to the the mats and one to greater. Manchester Police as two of the logic of police forces but these requests a tricky they take research to get them. Right. Yeah I a long and harrowing experience from information requests like light might based. Let's say you have to think through what the piece of information or document that your looking for is, and you have to define it as clearly a narrowly as you possibly can. Especially, if you ask you about something which the places holy that information might find embarrassing that will find any reason possible till you are to delay you or come back and say, Oh, can you can you defy refined your question more say we specifically asked about about policy What is your? What is your policy on this? And if possible, provide the documentation. They waited. And waited. And then the response came back urban but thinking, Gotcha now this is this is significant. The. Met Police had admitted through the response that they would pass on details of by victims and witnesses of a crime if there were concerns over their immigration status. Migrants support groups reacted with shock warning that people would be scared to report crimes. If they feared, they could be deported as a result. The pair of journalist published their story on Politics Kerr UK, and they kept going. Natalie. Heard about a troubling case where Brazilian woman who was working as a sex worker was robbed at knifepoint by five men. When she went to the police to report the crime she said, they focused more on trying to prosecute her for the sex work. and. When she returned to UK after a holiday abroad she was detained. She was then facing deportation after you sort of instead of being treated as a victim she that case was turned and she was then being treated as a an immigration offender

"If you're not familiar with Clavier mini-armada this is a wonderful species. That's native to Southern Africa and their members of the Amer relived. Aca family. That's the Lilly family with strap. Like leaves and Gorgeous. Lily like flowers that are usually orange but come in a radio collar three to read rusty reg yellow. And there's also some with variegated leaves for you variation fans out there and as to the clavier debate. Well they were named after lady Clive. Who was the granddaughter of Robert Clive and Clive of India? So I guess officially it should be Clavier but Steve from implant center and I both ATV so. You're just going to have to deal with that if you happen. To be a proponent of Clavier Steve Hickman is part of a family run. Nursery called the whole implant center in South Yorkshire in the UK and this interview was recorded before lockdown happen so there may be some references to flower shows which normally at this time of year. Steve would be attending with his plants. But of course that's all been curtailed for the moment but that just put it into context as to why that might be mentioned in this episode. Now Steve as well as being an expert and one of the premier breeders of clears in the UK. He's also an expert breeder of Agatha this to bake and narrowings so didn't check out their website something for the Garden Dot Co dot UK which is got loads of information on growing all of these plans including clears and really is a great resource. I'll put some inks in the show notes so you can take a look at that over to Steve to kick us off with some fron tastic useful information about growing these beautiful flooring house plants and he starts buying explaining exactly what court about clears in the first place where first of all we started and we still do A. I'm a few years ago. They outcomes has changed families into Morella. Deysi which covers the cliff is is not to go into the May. Tens of this society amid other girl was principally a guy called Mike Jeans who was then national collection holder and from talking with him and saying the clippers and the fantastic amount to call us. That are available now. Such as Reds Brahms's yellows petits Greens and pinks and from tastic by colours. It really attracted me. I The ship of the leaves like some shape. It's exactly like the ACA pompous impressive with not in flower because of the array of different flower. Colours just fantastic just mind blowing. Libya's went out saying for a long time. Steve Do you think they coming back in fashion? It's a traditional Victorian plot. You say parents and grandparents used to have them up. They used to have they asked pedestrians manly the vote in the oranges and occasionally the yellows but these days like I say these different colors our community the ball and what we're doing to encourage people to start growing With exhibiting clippers at The larger richest flower shows which is Chelsea Chatsworth. Where LAST YEAR? We did it for the first time in the Pavilion Chelsea and we at to get the gold medal along with the pumped exhibits as well so people say all these new fantastic colors for the first time and people with play Orange One Sort of increase in the collections. I think we are always going to be suckers for all those new and interesting plants safe more generally. What are the basic catastrophically? These I think quite tough floods are they. You have Roy of an easy to grow so stopped up in February. If you've clavier in a container they only liked to be repoted every now and again just like yoga from the same family. The lie of the rose to become jested so once. You've you plant in. Say six to eight inch. Container is happy for three. Maybe four years in that same content. Now let style February you start watering the clavier once a week or once a four not just keep it moist but you do start to feed the clear. Once every two weeks and the reason he stopped feeding now become apparent. Sort of later on you do this. Roy through the season about September. Now if you've never wall broom the clavier will start to flower. Send the flower up through the leaves early January February even a little bit early. If it's a really warm room if you keep it nice and cool which we try and do the flower. Later in the season surrender may June time. So You keep watering you. Enjoy the flower ridden. If you pollinate the flowers with a cotton bud In the morning or evening you get seedpods form in which I'll talk about lead but the most important thing to keep flowering every year is the do like a cold spell so when the danger cross gone sort of June two you can take it outside onto the shade of a tree or a shady part of your Patio Conservatory and leave it there while end of walk. Tober bring it in. Just before the frost or alternatively you can keep it in your house while the September implicit outside September October so it gets not Eight to ten week chill sets the board in the base of the plant for flower in the following spring. Now you can't live is fairly dry over winter. So December January you keep it on the dry side not bone dry but dry. That's the rest in period And brings you into February. You start watering and keeping it moist you feed once a fortnight the fade then brings the flower up through the leaves and the flowers normally just held above the leaves. If you don't say it correctly the flower often stays in the central Rosette delays. And you don't really see it so the cold spell. In the autumn. The dry over interest impaired undefeated wants all night. It keeps you plumbed health and on the issue of fertilizer. What what do you recommend Of The freeway recommend Is is sort of general feed but we have especially speed that we use we do. It is available on our website and the flower shows a mouse.

How Eric Would Start All Over from Scratch in 2020 | Ep.
"Welcome to a code of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about three ways to double your organic traffic with International Seo but before we do neil's got the bulk of the experience here. We should talk about why international seo is important a neil. You've actually had a conversation with people that are experts and you decided to double down on International. Why and then. What kind of results have you seen? So I've done a lot of international. Seo because the majority of the people aren't living in the United States. That's where I'm living right now. So hence I mentioned the United States and I went to Brazil one time saw the potential saw how. They're so much money to be made overseas as well so I went with the International. Seo Approaches worked out. Well if you had to take a guess. Eric what do you think my number one country get. Seo Traffic from India yet that's right. That was an easy one. You know that what's number to Brazil. Brazil is number two. You can't see my screen to a crazy number three United States. None of Laurie. You did do Spanish as well so it's either Spanish or Spain or Germany or Mexico No. Uk's next than Germany than Canada. So you don't see the Spanish ones too many of them in the top ten but if you add up all the Spanish ones it would be number four right after United States because with Spanish right. You're after Mexico. Spain Argentina Chile Colombia etc. So adds up a lot. So I'm not necessarily dominating in one of those specific countries but I'm getting like a lot of generating forty fifty sixty thousand visitors Up It would be the number four spot there you go so we're GonNa talk about the three ways to double your traffic with International. Seo What is way number one? Neil so way number one is go out there and build links in these local regions so I would tell you the transit your content beauty. No that don't do it manually. I mean don't do automatically do it. Manually adjusted to the local region. And of course you know to do cured research and all this stuff. But here's a big kicker that most people don't talk about you need localized links. It doesn't matter if you have high domain authority if you don't have localized links from everything we've seen you don't do. Well so make sure you go out there and get localizing stump. I am Email People. What just shocker. Most people don't know this is it's easy to build links anywhere other than English speaking markets because known really buildings in those markets. So even when people like sure sounds good. Neil you took away your Chinese translation. I see I still have Chinese translation only for overseas footer. But here's a question for you. This is way number two right now. This is up for debate because you basically put the different languages in a sub folder versus a T. L. D. So I I guess I'm curious to ask you why you choose the sub folder versus the T. L. D. If I did it all over again I would choose. The -til okay and so Tokyo is top level domain it's basically like UK would be dot co dot UK and then you have a lot of different ones like Japan would be that JP reason for doing that. Obviously is neil talking about having localized links. Were you WANNA see those signals right having a high level? Tld the actual local like where the country is. That's obviously better than having just a dot com so these signals are pretty easy to see right for a search engine so just take that into consideration. Use the TILDE. I if you don't use it till they use a sub domain if you don't use a sub domain than do a sub directory I do the sub directories. I did the one that you shouldn't do too lazy to change it at this point but I should have done unique domains Everything that we've seen in experimented with we have a unique domain for certain regions. Not all but it's hard to like Mishmash. Do some sub domain some their own domain. Like just too complicated. But what we've seen untested is in a lot of regions where there's a large population. You don't even have to buildings or do anything if you're using a td because it's not even competitive and non really doing. Seo All right number three last but not least what is Neil last but not least folks on brand queries so more than links more than anything else. We've found that if you can get brand craze in these localized regions. Your ranking skyrocket. Easiest way so to speak at the local events sponsoring local. Things have feet on the ground. Anything you can do to build up the Brand Kerridge rights have consistent email communication. Try to get more value than all the competition which isn't hard in many cases and yet you don't even need a ton of brand core is just something really does the trick. Nothing makes it really hard
Plant Passports in the UK
"Nikola thanks for joining me today. It's a topic that's been causing a lot of conversation around the plot growing world here in the UK. And I. I wanted to start by asking you about this. These new regulations that have came in late last year. Two thousand nine hundred nineteen. What's the rationale between this new deform of plant passports that have been introduced? Well the new pump passport. Regulations widen both the scope of the kinds of plants. CBS which require a plump passport and also the scope of the operators who now must be registered and authorize and. We think that this full allow us to move from a more reactive approach to plant health that we currently have to a more proactive approach enabling us to better tackle pest listen disease threats as they emerge what are the the. But the consumer. That's buying plants in the garden center. Loretta nursery or buying buying things mail order. What will they see in terms of a difference when the be anything to see in terms of a different approach to the plots? They're receiving will the requirement qualm for plant. Passports is now going to be down to retail level So that also captures distance sales on for example Internet trading so that all traders of plums must now be known into the competent authority which is a deaf FRA and we'll have plot health obligations so whether they're nursery landscape her high street retailer or selling online they will have obligations to to be authorized and to keep records so that when a consumer buys applause and they may well notice that now on the plunked or the box walks with the label There may be a plant passport but equally. If in some instances the plants aunts have entered a store with a plan passed on a trolley for example and the consumer just buys one plant. They may not actually see the plant passport so it slot. It depends on the kind of plump that they're buying whether buying it from right at. What are the pests and diseases that you're most worried about what what the big headline grabbing pests and diseases that we concerned about here and trying to limit through this new regulation while the there is a range of pests? Pests Diseases. What consent about we list them all on the UK plot health risk register but essentially for the kind of horticultural all to cultural ornamental? Plants traded were particularly concerned about things like Zainullah fastidious which is a bacterial disease We're we're also concerned about various insect pests such as the Asian longhorn beetle but there are a wide range of pests that were concerned about and one of these. The wording of the plant passports says that this concerns all plants for planting and if I people who said can you ask ask nuclear. What does plants for planting actually mean are we talking about everything that goes in the ground oriented as opposed to produce that might be the plant based but is is intended for the kitchen is that is that the distinction book essentially plants for planting or anything? That's going to be either put in the ground all kept in port an and as essentially as a living plant at rather than For example cut flower Woah. or a cutting of something. That's being used as a hub. So it's really anything that's going to be planted in the in the ground remain. Main plummeted will be replanted oversee cuttings and propagation material things like seed potatoes would also be included. Where did I am partied herbs bright? I've got you that makes sense and one of the other issues that seems to have come up since this legislation came in is the vast numbers of people who are using often using social media coming online. They're not professional nurseries. But they've got a few plants that they're propagating gating and neither swapping or selling. Can you just clarify for me. What does it actually mean in terms of who needs to be registered? I've heard conflicting advice from people. Some people saying well I'm a hobbyist so I don't need to be registered even though I'm selling plots online posting them to people who can you just clarify that point yes so I mean we. We have had several clubs and organizations. Contact October for clarification. So we're still kind of working through the final details but essentially If a hobbyist owning hugest he's making a profit from sales then we think that they should be in scope fo- plant passporting just as in the same way if they're selling cuttings and And so on whereas if there is I know that many clubs and societies aww have a sort of swapping service so you know they might share seeds. They might hsieh material. We feel that Would fall outside light the scope so it's really whether somebody is is essentially making a business out of it making a profit trading for financial benefit Kuffour. You know it's over a greater scale than somebody just kind of swapping giving away clumps a local no club so for those people in that category who are likely to be less jammed up and all this stuff that hopefully the nurseries. He presumably a much more engaged in in in your work. Anyway what do they need to do. Somebody is selling some cuttings off plants online. They need to register and will they be inspected to they have to pay fees. Could you just explain that because that seems to be causing people some confusion so what we do is ask those people to Contact us through the Gulf Dot. UK plant health pages era various sort of online information and a sort of email address to contractors so that they can Notify us of the kind of trade that doing on the wing than we can make a judgment as to whether they need to be registered essentially registering can be done online but authorization means to issue. Plant passports means that we do need a plot. Health ceases specter to tape may make a visit and decide whether or not you know that person meets minimum plant health standards in terms of traceability knowledge about about of the plants that they're trading in and in terms of fees we Do charge a minimum uh-huh fee for an inspection and again that's all set out on the web pages and it's based on a minimum time unit. The fifteen minutes or part thereof. So you know somebody who's a a very small scale prater it should be fairly straightforward and simple simple to do obviously larger operation. It it might take a little bit more time line to do the authorize ation But fees are payable For somebody to be derived to issue possible so I think the key thing is determining whether or not you know the businesses in scope first of of all and then what the cost of the authorisation might be
Sonos CEO tries to calm customers, says products will work ‘as long as possible’
"Josh did a write up on this in peace per this week And this is an announcement about Sogo. Soros us so goes so knows legacy versus modern products. And if you're wondering what that means if you're a sonos enthusiast rest and I'll just wave my hand in the air there or if you're frustrated with Sonos I'll just waved my hands in the air. They're they're classifying their products into two groups legacy and modern the modern products of course You know we'll continue to get regular software updates and it's interesting thing There's a kind of a list of the modern products and the legacy products and You know the the bridge. Ah The connect Made from two thousand fifteen the connect amp which was made from or the ones that were made between two thousand eleven. Two Thousand Fifteen because they continue to make the connecting the connect damp You know two thousand sixteen In later right until they came up with these sonos amp example that came out at the tail end of two thousand eighteen The first gen play five which I have And then a list of those EP Eighty Ninety one hundred one twenty which are fairly old but it was interesting because a lot of these products in some cases if you bought a connect Ampara connect In two thousand fifteen. You're going to be profoundly pissed off because it's essentially a four a year old five year old product. This point If you WANNA play five Jim one play five. That's a ten year old product and The the reason I'm bringing this up is You know this is this. Is You know sonos claims that they cannot get for a lot of pardons there's over one hundred streaming partners that Sonos works with this point spotify tied. All these would be the ones you might think about first audible something something like that But apparently the the the API software getting so complicated that they claim they you know a lot of these products these you know. Eight ten year old products next which respect with eight ten year old chips or at the edge of their capabilities at this point and they can no longer They can no longer kind of keep them running and or deliver the customer the user experience that she wants. And you know it's Frustrating strating would be one word for it if you own these products because they still sound fantastic They still work extremely well. They still seem to have. I've frontier purposes no delay when you start the product it's You know it's something we're probably GonNa see more and more of For these single use devices you know the register Got Really intense intense about this Thomas Kleber over the register dot co Dot. UK First of all like a lot of sites The idea that so if if I have if bald my stuff is modern like for example. Apparently might play three is new enough. You know. SONOS APP is new. And if you have the play one speakers which is what we've done a ton of our listening on Those all have enough processors to keep moving forward However the one play five we had which was perfectly adequate? Did a great job in our kitchen kitchen would no longer would aid. No longer received updates and be leaving in our network would prevent us from using Any of the Speier any of US figures network. I work from getting updated. And you know so SONA says they're gonNA give you the ability to Corentin your legacy gear You know the part of the reason I mentioned the The register article is because they pulled out some I. I think that that pulled out some quotes there. It is do you go In their Q.. Four Twenty Nine Hundred Ten k the financial filings were.

Blood Pressure Med Might Help Fight Alzheimer's
"So they say a blood pressure pill has the potential to slow down Alzheimer's disease. And it's an expensive in approves flow of blood to parts of the brain linked to memory Dutch research found that those given these pills for six months saw twenty percent increase in circulation of blood to the hippocampus. Now, the drug is called Nevada Pene, and like amyloid Pene, the opinions are calcium channel blockers. And so it costs less than I don't know fifty cents a day. I'm not sure how much but we commonly use medicine in that class for blood pressure in scientists. Now, this study's coming out of the telegraph dot CO dot UK. So I don't know if we use no Vada Pene here in the United States. But we use a lot of medicine similar to that. And scientists at the funding suggests that could that decrease in blood flow in patients with Alzheimer's disease could now be reversed, but they said it was too early to say. If this could slow down progression of the disease. So the study was done by Radford University Medical Center in the Netherlands, involve forty four participants half of which were given. They'll Vata team and have given placebo at the study start, and after six months researchers measure blood flow says specific reasons of the brain using a unique MRI technique, and they think that it. It works. I mean, they say even though no medical treatment is without risk getting treatment for high blood pressure. Could be important to maintain brain health and patients, so another issue we have is well, how many people, you know, if they have their blood pressure control would be able to prevent dementia. So it's not the biggest study, but it's looking at well, you know, maybe if we are going to treat high blood pressure in a vulnerable group for dementia. The we use medications like the calcium channel blockers. I talked about how the calcium channel blockers work. They relaxed blood vessels. And by the relaxation of the blood vessels, you could improve flow as opposed to the tightening of blood vessels. That happens sometimes with high blood

Lauren Vogel bomb here shortly after midnight in the early hours of June sixth, nineteen forty four nearly twenty thousand allied paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines to be the first soldiers on the ground on d day conditions were terrible that cloud, cover, and fog made it nearly impossible to spot their landing targets and the night sky was pierced with Nazi heavy anti aircraft rounds and Steiber fire for those paratroopers, who made it to the ground, many were separated from their units and unsure of their locations alone in enemy-held territory. They had to find their comrades in the fog, blanketed dark without tipping off the enemy good thing. They had their clicker. Hours earlier when boarding the transport aircraft back in England. Members of the United States one hundred and first division were each handed a small metal box that would serve as a low tech emergency communication device by pushing down on the list of the box with the thumb and releasing it made a sharp clicking sound their instructions were simple. If you're on the ground, and here's someone approaching click once two clicks reply means a friend. No, click could be in trouble. Twenty four hours after landing. The paratroopers were told to ditch or hide their clippers allied commanders were worried that the devices would fall into Nazi hands and be used trick allied soldiers into thinking that an approaching fo was friendly, the day clippers were only an action for twenty four hours, but who knows how many lives were saved by the simple, ingenuity. Inspired by the seventy fifth anniversary of the day invasion. This year, the British company that made those original day clicker is on a search and rescue mission of its own of the seven thousand clicker is manufactured by acme whistles during World War, Two less than a dozen have been recovered.

He says that the few confirmed clippers in circulation are all held by museums and private collectors, acme whistles itself doesn't possess even one of the original clippers, although it sells an exact replica made with the original machine presses just because there have been so few recovered DJ clippers it doesn't mean that there are not more out there.

Thanks. Pretty I'm just that we can fit into the second half of the conversation with Mr.. Back on that time. Get a kick out of do you? Remember the electricity of feeling the scene was star in feeding. Definitely felt like that. And then once once Adam once turned into like a record deal and all this press saying one thing and the scene was over basically. But I was Adams. He was my best friend. He's still I mean, he's still isn't spirit. I don't get to see much, and we're all older adults now. So it's kinda bitter sweet or whatever. But I you know, when we see each other, it's fine. But he's he's it's great when I see him. But but anyway, like, basically, I just had to so much work to do. I had so many of my own CDR's. But anyway, somewhere like he had that DO kind of solidify for awhile. And and then and then luckily, I got constant hitmaker to come out in the upcoming out a little like six months before. But that that was like a much smaller deal. So I could get a thing to come out quickly. It wasn't like something that would get me a ton of press magazines or things like when you to the. Toes that you went on do you? Remember an emotion. Do you remember ever feeling instantly in love with the notion of towing or insult kind of the notion? Now, I loved it. I was inspired. The very first proper tour. I did was with the war on drugs in Europe. But I said, even then I was like I'll do this. But I need to open. I love also. So yes. So I was play my own music playing without him. And those were awesome tours. They might remember it otherwise. But I remember just by the end of it. I was reading on guitar really fond. Wait for a long period of time. Even if it's something small something's changed in my playing a little bit. When I can I'm still going. I was definitely stronger. And I remember one night. I was up all night. I wrote this song. Hey now move in which I really liked ended up on a later, EP called square shells, very inspired while out there. And and also when I came back. I was definitely a new person. I that song runner ups. I had written it basically before. But when I came back it was fully formed I four runner ups. Again, I think in Philly one more show like playing it was me. And then the war on drugs played. Yeah. I don't know. It's all it all always makes you grow now. Now that I've been doing it for a long time. It's still does. But like, you don't maybe. Here used to one thing. I was gonna ask us. So you've got two kids. So. Yeah. Do you? Remember your relationship with the road changing? Or did your approach the work force to change in a way. Then naturally, you know, I mean, I especially at first Dr daughter a will to those were trying time because it was like when smoker and came out, I got put me on more sloping from a halo game out at it gave me more exposure. And it was like a slow growth. But there was always. So we had to capitalize on that. And I kept taking lots of shows. I remember it was a little shocking for me to see as well as my wife, like she was, you know, definitely. We had to do it. You got to go everywhere that you're offered then. And in a way, I still do that. But we can we have the luxury of being able to every time. I put a record out. Now. I can I can have more time off in between, you know. But it's still you got one the record just comes out. Like now, you got to go out. You're not gonna go far. If you don't put it out there you have to do with the press too. I was I was sensitive about finally coming home needing a break, and I had done various things put out that Courtney record and still went on some towards violators. And then they want me to go on. Press tour a lot a bunch of press possible before the actual recommend it was all just so daunting. But glad I came to my senses because you gotta grease the wheel like so nice to hear you say that because I think how big a is. We're not students, and you promote what you've been working on the reality is people don't hear it. Yeah. Work. It's going to. And then if you don't tore it and people don't see it you. First of all, you're not gonna get tight. You know, people are saying these are the best shows ever grand. And we got a great crew now in great sound, man. But it's all come together. And this is it's been ten years since I put out records, and it'll be in the fall of two thousand nineteen and it'll be ten years just on matador loan. So it took that long for us. I can I look for me to be able to even look into the face of the audience and be able to tell that weighs into. It's like that's not just by playing a the minimum. No, you gotta go out there and to it's exactly that even when you're having a heart award of being out that seeing the instant reaction than kind of. Boom for the people feeling something yet. Yeah. I would say that playing live now informs my recording. Or it's equal, you know before the recording. Okay, with turn into would inform the live thing. But like now, it's like very it's very organic playing live and it's like alternate release. Really? And I just try to get that in the studio as well as live is possible. Or, you know, just kind of because that's like that's instantaneous. That's just that's like nature granted you were using electricity. It's always clinking had his had a son about two years ago. And I hope he doesn't mind me say this. But he was kind of obviously at first when we first went back onto he was struggling with that and being away from his son. And then he I remember having a conversation with him where he said, I've kind of come to this realization where the alternative is I'm home, but I don't get home until eight or nine and sure I get to say good night team each night by get quality time with him. Whereas went off tool. I get one month. Well, I've got my best friend my son. And I'm not I'm not just walk out with my son realize that. Yeah, I realized that as well because that's the plus, you know, if you're an artist you just be freaking miserable. You know, really? Thank you there. Should be. The only I mean, not because not even just it's tricky because you don't want to be away, but you wanna be playing music, and then like what once you played at people like this. What this is this is long longtime common. Vinyl pale Vegas. Residency.

Please everybody calm down. It is a classic Royal message in the in in the door sides could read into it what they want to read into it. But the failure would say.

The Tech Startup Eliminating The Need to Learn Coding
"I want to share a story with you all about a company called bubble which is a visual programming tool allows anyone to build a custom complex website without writing or even seeing a single line of code now some tech enthusiasts. We'll think that Bogle is just too good to be true. Especially considering that many platforms have tried and failed to deliver. Code free website, building ball, unreliable informed that this platform. Truly works. An experience bull user can actually build a web app in similar complexity to Airbnb in about one week. And to prove just how easy bubble is made it for the average person to build a custom and complex website. What if they use decided to try and build a clone of Twitter, and this is what put them on my radar, and they successfully cloned Twitter in only four days using the boo platform, and I'll after link to the blog posts, accompany sappy sowed over more website at tech blog, writer dot co dot UK, juicy can kind of visualize and see what I'm talking about here. But in spoil is for me. Let's get him on the show so book up and hold on tight as I beam. You'll is all the way to New York. So we can speak with Emmanuel striking off founder of bull. So massive warm. Welcome to the show Kito the listeners about who you are. And what you do short soon. My name is Emmanuel's trash now and founder of stout obeys. New York called bubble that basically empowers people to program without writing code. It's something that people have tried to do for years, but people still teach code at schools. And so we think we should have a shot of that. And we've been doing that for quite a while actually seats six years now. So even the we still startup it's failure stabbed. And and that's what I'm doing full time. Personally, I'm originally from France at I guess people can hear it because of my accent. But I've been away from friends actually thirteen years now, I moved right after college to Asia for four years, I was working consulting in China, and then came to the United States from aim VA and true main sue the school. I was at a it might be at Harvard, and I met through the school network microphone there. Who had graduated earlier from college when Harvard Josh and we decided to Parthenon bubble in two thousand twelve tastic ally said a few moments ago that bull at shea allows anyone to build and host web applications without writing a single line of code us off with a blank canvas I believe that they can then create web pages and dragon drop features which allow us to easily Reese is maps textbooks is images and so much more. But he told me a little bit more about exactly what bull is the kind of problems that you're solving for everyday uses. So basically two things it's a visual programming tool. So that the part you just described. So it's it looks like, you know, PowerPoint in many ways where you design your application. How whole mission is to make programming as easy as using PowerPoint? Excel that's really what we're trained to do until the interface is not like reporting, but that's seeming spirit. So if you're familiar with those tools, you can be fairly easy to get Femina within bubble interface very quickly.
