Will Your Company Embrace the Covid-19 Productivity Revelation?
"Something been sitting comments. A couple of days ago is really stuck with me. What he said was a number of companies have realized during this covered nineteen pandemic and this work from home situation that the work that used to get done in eight hours in the office is now getting done in two to four hours at home and whilst no that's not true for all companies of course for a lot of companies and a lot of businesses i think it is and so the question for me is what are you going to do as a business. If that's true for you if you've actually realized that you can get the work done in half the time in a four hour day you can now complete an eight hour days work in the old days. You've now got four hours free per day per person. So what are you gonna do with that. I to just try and go back to normal and insist that your employees still sit there for that extra four hours or are you gonna find more work for them to do in squeeze squeeze more out of their four hours or maybe you can actually split it. Maybe give them two hours off. Let them go home. Two hours early and get an extra two hours of productivity out of the in the office even if they're only converting that fifty percent so we're actually really only getting one real productive time out of them. We're still now a bitter off than we were before. And so i reckon there's a massive opportunity for those companies that choose to embrace the revelation that covert has forced upon us. Which is we haven't been that productive in the office and if you can embrace that as a company and then maybe get a little bit more out of your employees while you're there but also give them something back and by letting them go a couple of hours elliott do something else on their own time in the office during that extra couple of hours that they were otherwise. Just wasting time with anyway. Then i think the returns to you as a company and a business will come back many fold in the short term and frankly obviously in the long term as well.
Does the 4-Day-Week Really Work?
"I have been such a fan of the day workweek for ever. The quality of life improvement working for longer days instead of five regular days. Were you have three days away from the office versus two days away from the office and i say office i mean from work. I think is incredible and you may have heard. They've been a lot of news. Reports about how iceland. His experimented with four day workweeks. And they believe it's been a massive success that they've actually had higher productivity it companies in iceland by doing the four day week instead of the five day week and i hope that as employers have seen that flexibility still gets the job done and retaining workers is becoming harder and harder thing. They giving people more flexibility in their lives and four ten hour days. Let's stay instead of five eight hour days. It's the same number of hours at work but when you think about that thing. That was all corporate speak Five years ago or whatever work life balance and companies would say. But they didn't mean it but when you have somebody who's got three days threefold as they can do whatever i think about the people who work in jobs where they work Three longer days on and then they have three days off places that are seven day places. How much they love the three and three in this case. We're talking about four on three off. I mean it's something that. I hope that the bosses at various places will see the wisdom of in even for themselves. Having more time with family with friends. It will be a fuller life a better career doing that. And i think people are better workers when they have more downtime. Like that

"As, as of a friend, but also how to prevent ourselves a little bit more. Yeah, that's that's a really great point and I think part of that is knowing yourself off and knowing your limits in your expectations, like my social battery starts to Decay about four hours in I can go six hours but four hours is my happy medium. Yeah. Do you know what I mean? Like someone asked me to drive two hours away to go to a concert and have dinner with maybe some shopping after and then drive two hours home. So you're looking at an eight hour day, wouldn't you say? And I was like, you know, can't do that. It would be certain people. Yes. Like, if it were my best friend, or my sister, or you or someone I know super, super well, that would be fine, but this was an in quit it like a an acquaintance I guess you could say. Okay. But if you could, if you had your own car, they could you could meet them for the concert, the dinner and the shopping, and then drive home alone to recharge. That could work. That is very long. But I like your idea of switching this up to reflecting on you. One of the things I need most, whether it's in a personal relationship, like a dating situation, like, you were saying or a friendship. I need freedom, I don't like that expectation of calling every day, checking in all the time, I need, I need my Independence, took my freedom. And I think it's important to know that about yourself. And, and, like you said, give yourself permission for whatever your needs are. And then you can feel more confident to make those known to other people wage. Because if you are then the people that you're interacting with are actually interacting with you like your truest, you not the person that you feel you have to be to keep other people happy. So if if your boundary is I need lots of privacy or I need to you know whatever your your personal needs and issues are and you have people in your life that say oh that's just a nice and she's you know, don't bother she's having her private time. That means so much. That means more than a Tiffany box or you know, a big extravagant gift is someone that honors who you are and where you're coming from and understands that and loves you just as you are. Have you ever had the kind of friend who will just call and call and call until you.

"If it's a little bit longer than an eight hour day, that's okay because it used to be Nine hour day or 10 hour day with commute. Now It's obviously not going to work for everybody in every situation, But this to me seems like such a great idea. And the fact that Iceland I sense a weird place to I don't know if you know this story. Remember the movie? The big short. What they did was is they predicted that these mortgage bonds were going to fail, and they bet against them. So they shorted them. They bet they got the banks. Actually, it's like Las Vegas Banks gave them odds in some cases, 200 to 1 odds on some of these mortgage bonds that they that they would fail. But you know what else happened? There were actually people betting on Iceland failing Iceland did go bankrupt. And people. There was a guy. This is amazing story, this guy that and I can't remember his name and I apologize, But it's in the book by Michael Lewis, who I always talk about. It's called Boomerang, and it's about after the crisis where countries started to go bankrupt. And there was a guy in Texas and he has $5 billion in nickels. Do you know why Because a Nicholas actually worth about 5.1 sense or a little bit more than that, maybe, like, five in and 25 and you know 56. So whatever sixes So, so it's actually worth more and he and they're not going to go down in value. And so he is about five billion of them. I don't have any dollars. That is, but it's a lot And he got him from the Treasury requested him and he keeps them in this big vault. I mean, there are people that do these kind of things that understand human behavior and the way you know, you know, when we move forward, how we how we do with our money. What makes us feel comfortable? What kind of risk we're willing to tolerate? Iceland, Maybe maybe turn the corner here with this may be their productivity will move forward. And maybe the four day work with by the time your grandkids are working will be the way it should be. Seems to me the bottom line is if you get the job done.

Updating The Numbers with eMarketer Co-Founder Geoff Ramsey
"Am so pleased to have as my guest. Jeff ramsey the co founder of emarketer and chief evangelist for insider intelligence. Jeff is a veteran of the attic. She'd your stage and we are going to talk on this podcast about the numbers. You should be paying attention to in the year head and the stories behind those numbers but before we get into jets predictions for the rest of twenty twenty one. I wanted to talk about twenty twenty. We saw so much change because of the pandemic and i'm sure that wreaked havoc on your predictions. Jeff well Yeah twenty. Twenty is year a lot of people would like to forget but we can go back and revisit that certainly in a busy year for our forecasters are forecasters busy themselves with excel spreadsheets Calibrating and then recalibrating numbers at a dizzying pace based on new information. That's coming in and certainly during last year we saw a lot of changes particularly with the consumer and So then ensued a ton of revisions to our projections that would normally last for you know at least eight nine ten twelve fourteen months You know we we were. We were spinning our wheels so fast. It's a wonder we didn't come off the tracks Biggest places where you had to revise those numbers Assure i think the biggest area without doubt was the area of e-commerce and we're gonna get into that in a little bit but if if anybody in the audience is thinking to themselves e commerce you think about about that. We'll think about your activity over the last year. And if you haven't done more door dash or grubhub or i'm not going to the store and never mind that. There's you know a massive winter storm that we're now seeing people are jew. Were just afraid to go to malls all this data and statistics were talking about you. Know people were a lot of most people. Were taking this seriously and mask or not. It was more comfortable. Felt more safe to order from home Whether it be on your desktop laptop or your mobile device so i would say the biggest set of numbers are the biggest changes in our set of numbers were in the e commerce space space and where we netted out to give a kind of a tip of the hat to twenty twenty is ecommerce sales grew by something like thirty two percent in twenty twenty versus twenty nine thousand nine due to the lockdown measures in the fact that we are all self isolated and just to put that into perspective If you look at non ecommerce sales that's that's the that's the the that's like the rhinoceros compared to the flea of ecommerce right but if you look at total retail says we're talking somewhere in the order of almost six trillion dollars right if you look at ninety commerce sales. They slipped by negative Three point two percent in two thousand and twenty. They might grow again predicting grogan this year but it actually slipped by over three percent and yet total commerce. Total retail sales grew why because of e-commerce growing a significant thirty two percent. So we some people said that we have Grown e commerce On original predictions something. We've advanced something like two or three years ahead of where we would normally be an and the trains left attracts. The growth rate is gonna go way way down. It's going to continue to grow some bets. That's the biggest change that we've seen. Yes i can. I can validate that anecdotally. In terms of how much ivan purchasing on amazon as well is kind of a lot of new e commerce stores. I was trying out to get you know farm to table food delivery and that kind of thing personally but that that's where my taste lies and you know you're making me hungry. Zony sales are seeing so many sales are moving to online. It makes me wonder you know one. What does that mean for all these digital advertising companies that kind of our that point right before you hit by And as well as how much time people must be spending online consumers platforms before they go on to you now. Consumed their dinner via door dash. Sir you know what that's a really good place it to really dig into because you know if i were say a a number two area where forecasters had to continually busied themselves. With reaching recalibrating. Numbers was in the area of time spent so let me just puts in perspective on that because i think most of us realize having or locked in an apartment or a house we start to go a little bit stir crazy. So what do we look to. We looked to digital activities to you know suck up our time and so a couple of things with these since cove it. Americans have increased the time that they spend with all media cross online and offline by about an hour and five minutes a day. So it's over thirteen hours a day. We're spending with media now. I do need to put a little caveat there thirteen hours you might be thinking. Wow that's a lot of time. And that's that's half the twenty four hours you know that are in a day. But it includes double-counting for multitasking. 'cause i don't think there's any of us on the planet that don't were we're watching. Tv have another device in our hand. We're doing something else right. And because we never know in the second or nanoseconds time where attention is fleeting from one. St the other way that attention actually lies. We have to double count that figure. So if you're spending an hour watching tv and you're on your mobile phone that whole time we have to double count That that our so it becomes two hours if that makes any sense so we're spending an extra hour a day and almost all of that Ghosts to digital so just to give some perspective before cove it we were spending. This is pretty pretty significant amount. We're spending about half a little over half of our day. Six hours and forty nine minutes a day Doing digital stuff alive. It was mobile. was streaming but then we went from six hours forty nine minutes in two thousand nineteen the pandemic hits and we go up by a an hour and a minute to seven hours and fifty minutes a day with digital And we think that digital time is going to continue to increase by twenty twenty two. We'll be spending eight hours a day with digital which was a little frightening for maybe some parents as they think of their kids. Because this is on average and if you think of kids and teens and it's probably way more than eight hours day so as we net out digital time now counts for roughly sixty percent of adults a total daily time spent with media and another area within within digital of course streaming Were all streaming more and when you think of time spent with streaming whether you thinking connected. Tv's court cutting or cord nevers. That's my favorite. Group is like college students who never will never have paid for a traditional pay. Tv subscription. why would they win. Their parents are basically donating their netflix account to their kids And then you got. Ot subscription activities with netflix amazon prime. And so on so. These numbers really shot way past our original pre covid estimates and so where we netted out. Was it in twenty. Twenty one time spent with digital video will have risen by thirty three minutes or over half an hour per day and so now we're spinning If we're looking at digital video time said about two hours and nineteen minutes And that's up from an hour and forty six minutes and twenty nine thousand nine but just a quick reality check. And then i'll let you jump in here. Reality check is that you might be thinking with all this streaming and so on that people are spending on average more time with digital video than they are with linear tv. But that's not quite yet. The case are estimated that traditional. Tv whether you're watching broadcasts abc cbs. Or you're watching a cable. Channel or direct access is is sixty percent of the time we spend with. A video is with traditional tv
How To Build a Successful Flight Instructing Business
"You on the last episode in part one of this. You can have accessible flight instructing business. We went over different things like how it started as a new. Cfi you know getting over that initial anxiety and in the fears of flight instructing and also how to establish yourself and build your skills and your reputation we talked a little bit about the flight school versus independent and also setting your rate. You know how you get paid and that type of thing. We're gonna go a little bit more into that part of it as far as getting paid and where we left off so One of the things that we. I think we talked about a little bit. But i think we really need to solidify and also understand a little bit. More is the day rate versus hourly rates. And i'm going to start this off. I just to talk about what i've done as an example on a day an hourly rate and what you guys can look forward to. It varies now. Obviously an hourly rate. Let's talk about the simple one. I that's how most flight instructors are paid by the hour. You work in our you get paid for an hour now. Some people are and we talked a little bit about. This are confused as far as you know. When do they get paid. Do they get paid just for the flight or do they get paid for the ground instruction and we did talk about that. Where yes you get paid the whole time. You're instructing most of the time but there are some flight schools that don't charge for that. So if you're doing a debrief preflight you're you're actually just doing just a groundless. And you should be getting paid for those hours mostly. It's the same a rate but there are some flight schools that do change and also as an independent. You can change yourself so again hourly rate is simply while you're instructing you get paid by the hour something that gets a little more confusing i think is the day rate. And that's something that i think that you can kind of look at it from this viewpoint. There's an opportunity cost to you doing a day rate in other words. You're giving up your day to go fly for somebody. But you're also guaranteed that money per day so if you look at an eight hour day you could ask for the eight hours of flying time per hour but what's probably going to happen is When you're asking for a rate for the whole day they're going to have to negotiate that so basically is is something a lot of folks use both in the flight instructing world and also in the corporate world. They hire pilots for that day. The way that i've used as i used to work for an oil company. And i would do their flight instructing and i would do some of their reviews and they would pay me a certain amount of money per day. We'll talk a little bit about how much you get paid back. Then i was getting paid one hundred dollars a day to actually fly with this person to to build time for that individual and also to do their flight. We've used for the people there. That's a little bit different. i mean. nowadays things have changed especially if you specialize for day rates as far as like a serious and that type of thing so again. It's something that. I normally what i tell people is. If you're going to do a day rate start high if you're going to be tied up for the whole day it's a six or eight hour day you normally work your ass for that. You can always negotiate down from there but normally what happens is you're going to get paid a little bit less than your hourly rate for an eight hour day. Not always though if you look at. And i'm gonna ask tom speak up a little bit about this one. I know in in the serous world. That is a little bit different. I mean they. Those guys get paid some amazing amount as far as that day rate but anyway that's a simplification of the day rate. I do day rates on on other things. And but i want to hear cinema some of your comments here so i'm going to start with tom as far as day rates. What has been your experience. And if you could i know you have a little experience in the series world. Maybe he'd comment on that. Yeah so you're correct with the hourly rate and you know charging for flavor or ground and whether you're working for somebody or whether you're independent It's all structured a little differently. Obviously if you're working for flight school you're going to be sharing that money with whoever owns that flight school If you're an independent you're probably going to be able to charge. Most of the money yourself. the hour leeann the day rate. comes down to. What are you going to charge the way that i figured out is like what am i gonna charge per hour and you know what is a full day so just to keep. The math made full day. Ten hours know so that was that was my. That's my day rate. Um compared to my hourly rate then. That's what i've changed. What i put into it One of the things that came to my mind also is that you know as an independent flight instructor. I've had opportunities where traveled to go work with somebody. And you know so now you're including expenses as well so now it's a day rate plus expenses you know so if i'm specifically leaving my house to go teach somebody you know i mean and this is agreed upon beforehand with the with the pilot. I'm working with but generally you know they'll pay my day rate and they'll pay for my lodging and food for the day you know so That that become part of it as well. How do you keep track of all that. And what are you gonna charge for it. And what's what's a good rate to do that. And you know you just go by looking out there you can talk to other. Cfi's there's there was a bunch of different ways you know I had students that at one point told me you don't charge enough. You're selling yourself short. You know so. I had to look at it. I was i was probably you know Not charging enough for my services you know. It took a lot of effort in time and resources to get to where i was at. And you know i should be compensated for what it is that i'm doing and and that's what you got comes in this whole thing. What are you willing to work for an hourly rate. What are you willing to work for. As a day rate are Are you gonna make sure that somebody covers your expenses. If you're going above and beyond where you normally fly out of those some of the thoughts i had.

Go to the gym for an hour, Two hours come back work. The other three of it's an easy thing to get used to. And certainly a lot of companies are going to be doing more of that, because what does that do? It means they don't have to invest in big real estate space, and some companies that have that probably will get out of those leases as soon as they can.

"Here on our town, Basel Vase tell us About your non profit Association for the recovery of Children. And what led you to this nonprofit. Thank you. Yeah, We're 501 c three nonprofit organization of former intelligence, military and law enforcement officers that are dedicated to the recovery of missing and exploited or sexually trafficked American Children. It began for us in 1993 during the civil war in Mogadishu, Somalia. Many people have heard me before. I understand that it what they understand about it. Somalia's black Hawk down incident so that kind of takes him to the to the region. And I was part of the CIA at that time. And in addition to my, uh Operational missions. We haven't A couple of girls who rescued them There. They were a little girls that were the Children of On and on Italian engineer that kind of abandoned them during the war did that when I get back to United States, I was really curious as to what's happening to America Children. And started taking a look into it in 1993 and realized that missing and abducted and sexually exploited or traffic Children wasn't a priority on law enforcement's list or for multiple reasons. It's not that they didn't care. It is just that they were budgetary constraints, judicial judiciary constraints, communication constraints, just a lot going against them, and quite often from the they just was not a priority over terrorism. Homicides or whatever it may be, And so I Lot at that time. There's something bigger than that. We're doing small governments and kind of went from becoming a CIA spy guy Tonto and extreme humanitarian To take a bite out of this evil and hopefully along the way. Now in 2000 and 20 build a coalition of strategic partners and citizens in this country that could actually Effective, in fact, as far more effective than our overburdened law enforcement. Exactly An overburdened is correct here in Southern Colorado recently, there's a boy that's gone missing and fountain and half of me is wondering, Did you get picked up by a trafficker? I know that it is very predominant in this area. So if you could give people that are listening some advice to give to their Children. I know a lot of kids they have to walk to and from school. Their parents have to work. So some advice. And then, of course, more about the non profit Association for the recovery of Children. Well, ideally, if I had my way about it, I would sell most of our audience, almost our listeners that It just isn't a matter of being aware. It's a matter of being equipped. And honestly, it's when the reasons we offer our three day very intense, eight hour day course on really equipping people so that they can be a part of taking a bite out of this evil. So it's not like, you know, we live in a kind of instant gratification society where I know their listeners. Probably thinking Okay, give me the magic bullet. Just tell me one thing that's gonna make it all go away. And unfortunately, it isn't that easy. However much to your question. Just know everything about where your kids are and what they're doing. Love them. Encourage them making pills worthy of your love. Be the parents that you're supposed to be. But when it comes to kidnappings, runaways, I mean A lot of kids go missing and it can be a kidnapping. It could be child exploitation. Sometimes they just run away. It's all kinds of things like Children are are either running to something or they're running away from something. And so if we put that aside and realize that you have a stable home and you're just asking, how do I protect my kids, then know what they're doing on social media know where they're going Constantly who they're talking to. Make sure you know the routes that they're traveling and make sure you're checking up on him frequently. I mean, there's there's deal location devices you can put on their phones. There's all kinds of security measures you can take. And a lot of parents will if I want to start telling them this Surrounded. They'll get Whoa, man, That's pretty time consuming. It's like Yeah, these your kids once they're gone, they're probably not going to get him back. So let's see you took on the parent role. That's what you do as a parent. Big time and Amen. Yes, time consuming that I have a nine year old son and I'm telling you, I put a GPS tracker in him. If I could e issues around, a lot of people do that, And here's here's what I would just like to say to that, while I think it's wise When I have parents, a lot of parents say the same thing All the G P and I'm going to say this because this is the sad reality of what we deal with. GPS tracker is just going to take you where they're dead. Body is okay. It's always going to do so. Prevention as far greater than simply those little technical measures that we're getting sold on every day, like schooling your kids, letting them know, making them aware of what perpetrators do The tricks of the trade. I got to tell you the biggest one When kids go missing. They look at you walk out the door and they go to have a face to face with the perpetrator because they've been online with them. And most parents don't know who their kids are talking to on all the APS on all the gaming, and here's another issue, so they meet somebody online and their feelings get wrapped up into what they're doing online, particularly if there's a perpetrator that says online. I love you. I understand you or your dad won't help you. I'll argue that becomes their first love online, and they found that first love online, so they stay online.
Mask Sprays & Advanced EO Chemistry
"All right. I'm here with Amy Galloper. Who's a nationally celebrated Essential Oil Educator Advocate Entrepreneur formulator and consultant with over twenty years in the Beauty Space Amy teaches empowers and inspires others to use essential oils with a holistic approach that starts with mindfulness and reflection and leads to total well being amy was on my show back episode one nineteen to talk about. Oil and plant powered beauty, but for this episode and really excited to focus more on the deeper more advanced knowledge around essential oil chemistries. So I'm super blessed to have you here on the show us today amy, how are you? Well, thank you for inviting with Samantha I'm very honored to be here. I love talking about essential with us. This is great. Thank you for including me I'm excited to geek out with you wait well before we got on this call we. Were talking a little bit about masks sprays. So before we get into chemistry have to like, have you share with my audience, what you're doing with mask sprays that these days? Well, I've been using both the disposable, and then some cloth masks, and obviously the best thing to do is to have a cloth mask and wash it after you know every day if you use it like for an eight hour day, it's recommended that you wash it and in between if you. Work and you take it off and you WanNa kind of spray something on it to keep it clean but also to help keep you calm. Would I've been doing is I've been using ethanol. which is also like ever clear like high proof alcohol. So it's about one eighty, two, one, nine, one, ninety, proof alcohol and I'll put let's say if I have a one ounce bottle or two ounce bottle, I'll put half of it the alcohol, the other half distilled water, and then all use essential oils that I find are anti microbial antibacterial but also really relaxing and are not gonNA be too like A. And my respiratory because remember like your mask already is covering your breathing's reading more labor than it would be usually. So I tend to go with like you might think, oh, Eucalyptus would be great but honestly I try that and after breeding eucalyptus like straight, it was just like too much. You know what I mean so. I find like Sitra says, I've been using lavender I've been using mandarin grapefruit works create an i. just do a really. I. Don't get too crazy because it is right up in your nose and in your mouth but I have found like that lavender's been my main. I guess you would call it core oil and then I just lay around that. So like I'm used lavender I've done like one tiny drop of Rosemary and men I've done like Orange Mandarin or grapefruit or maybe both orange and grapefruit with that, and that's been kind of my Combo I've also tried to black spruce with some lavender which is Really Nice in orange. That's also been a nice thing. So I have something for calming and then something to just support my breathing. So it's kind of been my bank. Yeah, and so you mix those oils in with a is it all hall? You don't put any which as our water in there? No no I do do which I do I do which as I have bought it at Marine could use a hiker slack Schley I've just been using distilled water basically, what do I have like two ounces which is like what is at a quarter JAC? Great quarterback is two ounces. So like two ounces of. To fill my bottle. So one ounce would be alcohol and you could use I guess you could use vodka I guess that's what you have, and then you would use other ounce as water but the way I mix my essential oils in because I, want them to kind of dissolved. So what I'll do and I make sure that I mix everything in a glass bowl or a glass. or a drinking glass or something, and I'll put the alcohol first and then I'll add the essentials and since it's right up on my face in my mouth, I really keep the dilution really low. So only put in lake. I don't know maybe like five to six drops of lavender seven drops of lavender needy, and then I'll do maybe like one or two drops of Rosemary and maybe like. Six drops of orange six drops of grapefruit or something like that or maybe Al divide those in half due for of. For of great for you and then I'll fix stat in the alcohol. Make sure that it's all really well blended and then all slowly pour in distilled water and then I pour that mix it up, stir it, and then I pour that a my bottle put US spray bottle I'll shake the bottle and then what I do is I hold my mask up and I spray in the inside of the mask and the outside, and then I wave the Basque around just to light it, let it air out a little. Bit and then I'll put it on. So it's not like too intense on my face. Does that make Santa whole sense thank you so much for walking Mike Beyond walking step-by-step through that was so helpful because I keep seeing this around I'm like, okay. But what exactly are you doing with this and that was so helpful but I'm curious what do you really feel like mixing the essential wheels with the alcohol I like mixing it with a whisker some pain helps it versus just pouring in like shaking it all day. Yeah actually I do because once essential oils in water don't really mix very well whereas the essential oils will dissolve them alcohol really really well, another thing you could do you don't even put it in a glasses maybe fill your bottle right halfway with the alcohol. Then add your essential oils, put the lid on it, shake it, and then add the water to kind of top it off that would. Be Good like that's another thing and the alcohol to is helps just killing some of the germs in addition to helping it's more about the germ thing. Do you know 'cause we're breathing right out of our mouth also, there's obviously things that we want to be aware of their to absolutely fix. So that's how I think doing that procedure will just make the oils like dissolve better into the extra. Perfect awesome episode over that was great now Katie. We. Talked about some chemistry. That was perfect I. That can you explain I wanna get into some some chemistry here and get really deep into the different kinds of molecules and That make up essential oils like how do you sort of categorize these in your brain? Well, as we know, essential oils are composed of many many different molecules and chemical constituents. You said, some have upward of two hundred different components and others just have maybe one or two. You know something like Eucalyptus or lemon. You know they're primarily just made up a one or two or three different chemical constituents, different molecules, and it's important here that I just say 'cause I know we talk a lot about like you know chemicals are bad chemicals a bag here we're talking about chemicals being like what? In nature like what we understand as like the structure of molecules, and what we understand is chemical compounds that are existing in nature that are made up of atoms like oxygen and carbon

I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This
Travel to Uruguay
"I'd like to welcome. The show Karen Higgs from Guru Guay Dot Com. Who has come to talk to us about? Uruguay Karen Welcome to the show? She's so much. And I have to spell that website because I want to be sure that people understand the the joke in the. Idea of what it is, but it's. Guay as in Uruguay and you are somebody who has written guidebooks about it right a website about it and you've lived in Uruguay for twenty years so I feel that Guru. Guay seems like an appropriate. Definition of what you do. And it also means that people stop confusing Uruguay Paraguay. Okay excellent. which is the bane of Uruguayans lives sure we actually do not have a show on Paraguay, and it's not for lack of trying, and I'm trying to line up for next week, so so hopefully we may have won back to back and then talk about the difference, but we're not talking about Paraguay today. We're talking about Uruguay which is not how the Uruguayans Sat, but we'll get into that. Karen, why should someone go to Uruguay? Never two types of people that come to Uruguay. They're all the type of people that have been everywhere. And, so they looking for the last off the radar destinations to go to and when they arrive, they'll love to say after I am the only person that I know. That's team to Uruguay so that on one hand and then on the other hand. People who do their research? They are interested in going to Latin America. They do their research. They looking for a safe country, especially as so female travelers for example than King. South America they all googling, and then they've like. Hey, there's this small country that's that between Argentina and between Brazil, that just seems to have all of these amazing statistics of development, how is this and then they look at it more closely and they discover that not only. Only, is it a progressive country and it's been a progressive country for hundred and fifty years with complete separation of church and state written into the Constitution the kind of country where women were given the vote well before places in Europe's of where the eight hour day has been in place for over hundred years, and then the look annul say hey, and it's also got amazing beaches and from what I can see. Nobody goes those beaches and it's got. Wine and how come I've never tried one of those wines? And then you know when they start, and they'll really looking into the find my website, et Cetera. Then they'll go. Oh, my God. It's got all this amazing world class live music, and I go to these shows and be up next to an amazing musician, and it won't even cost me ten dollars, and then somebody will say the beef is just amazing. Then somebody's like, but I'm a Vegan, and it's like, but now you could even get good vegan food in Montevideo, so yeah I mean basically. Laid back small by South American standards. It's very large compared to a European country, but it's small enough to be able to get around, and it's developed, and so it's kind of like a good start. A country when Latin America is consumed. It's not in your face. Excellent and we did mention that I'm pronouncing this Uruguay and we talked about this ahead of time, because that tends to be the English pronunciation. If I was from there, I would say it how. Do. So without ooh guy. So when you can't people on the football terraces, football's huge in Uruguay and you'll hear people saying ou y Ou do which sounds totally tribal, and you think about it. Which is Kinda funny?
Obama-backed documentary on Ohio factory wins Academy Award
"The documentary American factory which is nominated for an Oscar for best feature length documentary was produced and directed by my guests Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are it was the first film acquired by the Obamas new production company higher ground which is distributing it in partnership with Netflix last year American factory when the Sundance directing award in the documentary category the movie is about what happened when a Chinese company opened a new automotive glass factory in Dayton Ohio in the same spot where a GM company close just a few years earlier the new Chinese factory foo yell glass America was greeted is great news by Dayton and by men and women in need of jobs but as time went on it became apparent there was a considerable culture clash between how the Chinese treat workers and have the American workers expected to be treated especially those workers who are used to having the United auto workers union behind them and no longer did some of the workers are making half as much in our IT Fujio than they did at GM by focusing on this one factory the film is a case study of what the global economy means for some American workers and how hard it's become to find work that pays enough to have a home and support children right guard and bogan are with the perfect people to make American factory they live twenty five minutes away from the factory and their previous film the last track documented the closing of Dayton's GM factory the last track was also nominated for an Oscar your record Steve Bognor welcome to fresh air congradulations on your Oscar nomination and on the film thank you Terry so what were the expectations in your hometown Dayton won a Chinese billionaire announced that he would open a new automotive glass factory there on the site of the GM plant that close you know people were very hopeful we had lost the GM plant almost eight years before when chairman Chow who's the you know Chinese billionaire who bought that old rusting General Motors plant when he came to town it just everybody was really very excited yeah after that GM plant closed things were so hard for so long I mean people lost their homes the job you could get were like at the Cole's distribution center or payless shoes warehouse distribution center or fast food people making nine Bucks an hour and and imagine your middle aged you gotta cater to your mortgage and you're making nine dollars an hour it's just like it was so hard and there was such hope went went through yeah now yeah so what were the incentives for the billionaire the Chinese billionaire the chairman who opened this factory in Dayton well one thing is if you make glass in the Midwest right on interstate seventy five right if you think about it goes from Detroit all the way down through the south all the auto makers are all along there so heavy glass no longer has to be shipped from China to reach the big three and all the other automakers and you know labor costs and China have been going up over many years and labor costs you know what people make per hour in the US have been going down and so the chairman and his team the free out team we're doing a lot of calculations about the cost of shipping the cost of energy labor costs and at some point it made sense for them to come to the US and and actually chairman shall told us he was also asked by General Motors by some of the other automakers to set up shop in the Midwest because they needed more Cassidy more more reliable glass delivery you know the chairman is seventy three years old now he's exactly my age as it happens he I think wanted a kind of capstone project to his life and he wanted to create a big huge plant in the United States this was a huge challenge his family was against him a lot of the Chinese other businessmen were against him it was kind of a personal decision on his part to go ahead and do it despite the opposition from people close to him it's such an interesting clash of cultures that we see in American factory expectations regarding everything about work from pay and benefits to what workers are expected to sacrifice for the privilege of working for the corporation let's start by comparing what automakers made at the GM plant when they were unionized and they were in the United auto workers to what they were making at Fujio which is not unionized well in in the film shown a Rosser who worked at the old GM plant and now works of Frida she says it varies directly she says that GM she was making twenty nine dollars and some cents per hour and if we out she makes twelve eighty four so that's less than half of what she used to make and you know she has several children she's got she has a house that they actually lost they lost their houses they couldn't they couldn't make the mortgage payments after GM closed it's a very different world and you know here here's the crazy thing it's like in China it's been a remarkable trajectory like China is on the rise and people in the film like Wong he once he is the furnace engineer who has been sent from China to the U. S. he's here for at least two years is not going to see his children for two years but he's been working a full house and she was like nineteen years old she is so dedicated to food out and it's offering him a path to the middle class he told us he's going to be able to build a build a house for his for his family for his kids back in China because he's making such good money meanwhile in the states people like Shimei who once had a blue collar middle class life modest but but secure they they have no security anymore and it's it's just very different landscape I want to get back to the culture clash between the Chinese and the Americans at the Chinese on factory in Dayton the American workers there thought they were working just like too hard for too little pay and the Chinese supervisors and the chairman that is the CEO of the company thought American workers that they're they're just lazy they don't appreciate what we're giving them and they want to much praise they need to be praised all the time where is the American workers felt like they were not being respected you know you're really putting your finger on something that I wish the management had recognized way earlier in that plant and I will I hope all foreign companies coming here begin to recognize that in our work culture workers expect to be respected expect to be not told do you just do this American worker will respond well why and maybe I have a better idea we'll look them look the supervisor right in the eye and question them this is not really happen in China very much it's just a different work culture where people do what the boss says boss says you have to work six days a week or seven days a week you just do it but in the United States we are we are expected we've what fought to have an eight hour day and the have weekends off that's pretty much unheard of in industrial work in China people expect to work twelve hour days six days a week the Chinese workers we spoke with we spoke with a lot of them they're not happy about it they don't like being away from their kids for most of the year or only seeing them on Sunday partly it's because that's what the culture has brought them to you know they've they've lifted millions and millions of people out of poverty in one and a half more last generations right but that has resulted in this really intense work life and people are proud you know Chinese workers are proud of their country they're proud of their company they're really proud how China is flourishing in the world I would say the American workers we now I can't say that they're proud of their company or they feel like really behind America like Americans really helping them rice in the world I think we're on a trajectory of less hope less possibilities we here in the US as far as working class people where is in China I think there's tremendous hope a tremendous sense that what our country is really has a huge place in the world to play there's a sequence that I I find so fascinating where the Chinese company bring some of the American supervisors to China to to see how this plan this kind of plan operates in China because the CEO of this company you know has one or more glass factories in in China so they bring them there and you see what it's like in China for the workers there first of all all the workers are in the union it's the communist union and seems like the branch of this union is headed by the CEOs brother in law true true yeah so what is the what I know strike one what is the union do for the workers there what is what is the meaning of the union well it's more like a social club either the union there because the the the Chinese Communist Party is so integrated and aligned with the management of food yeah now the traditional concept of the union that we would have here as an advocate for the workers in opposition to the company or to take on the company that that really doesn't exist the union that we saw and at Foochow in China is more like an HR department that helps build camaraderie esprit de corps you know that the kind of team building stuff and it's it's yeah it just felt different something else that really struck me and the Chinese segment of the film is that the supervisors talk to the workers in an almost military kind of way like to learn the workers would like line up information and the supervisor would kind of give them commands and then they'd have to like chance things at the end and they're chanting slogans like long as long as it's in praise of the company slogans they probably know really really well and don't really need to chance yeah it's this is just about their cultural difference it's funny because when one of the American supervisors when he got home he tried to get the Americans to line up in that kind of military formation and it just did not go that well you know it's like the people who signed up to work in this hot intense glass factory and the United States they're making twelve eighty four an hour and they're not getting paid enough to line up and be regimented like that there's a slogan that is said which I think so in kind of in capsules capitalism which is to stand still is to fall back wasn't that it's Steve yeah that's one of things a chance the morning on a day to stand still is to fall back and that's that's true of capitalism it is weird that the this communist country seems like the best capitalists in the world right now you know that they're sold they've been so driven my guess Sir Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are they produced and directed the documentary American factory which is nominated for an Oscar for best feature length
Harvesting tech shows up down on the farm as Brexit labor shortage looms
"As it turns is out that all jobs where a human touch is or has been irreplaceable fruit and Berry picking is a good example. Soft delicate fruits must be assessed zest for ripeness and then gently plucked without smashing them in a vice like grip but in Britain one looming effect of Brexit is a shortage of cheap human when labor and that spawned a new flurry of interest in robots. That can do the job. So you see that it's Reaching the stem and now the gripper cutter will cut the stem and grip the Strawberry Visha Mohana University of Essex Marketplace's. This is London bureau. Chief Stephen Bid went to see his robot in action. This is definitely very difficult. Territory for robotics These aren't repetitive. Movements in a highly structured environment as you would get in a car plant. The environment with fruit-growing is very unstructured. The robots gotta find the the fruit through a massive leaves so it needs stereoscopic cameras. David Three D. Image. It assesses the rightness of the fruit by measuring its wavelengths on the visible spectrum. It needs to deal with fruit of different shapes and sizes and machine learning going on here so it is pretty difficult to these robots. What's move with any sort of speed. I'm kind of imagining them. Shooting up and down these rows of fruit arms flinging grabbing berries filling baskets. Well they can do with that but They wouldn't be very effective they. They cannot pick as well as humans yet. They're getting there But they're they're picking more slowly than humans but they can work much longer so lacking speed they make up foreign stamina an average human raspberry picker picker can collect fifteen thousand berries in an eight hour day. The robot can harvest twenty five thousand in a twenty hour day so so slower but hard working robots also can pick at night which is not so easy for humans and that's better for the fruit because they they've been picked at low temperatures. Have they could be chilled more easily. How does the cost of these machines. Workout I'm guessing. They're expensive to buy but do they. Balance Out over their lifetime. Well this probably is the the major stumbling block in the path of this technology the Belgian company Tinian which is probably the most advanced of the European robot developers won't say exactly how much they cost which is never a good sign. They say the cost is comparable with the cost of human Picking but I've heard a lot of suggestions that One of these robots could cost as much as a hundred and thirty thousand dollars. It'd be very hefty price to pay. What Tinian says is that. They offer a complete package. They offer to rent out the equipment but one fruit grow that I spoke to said that he didn't expect Robots to become widespread in the UK or Europe until now the decade at least Stephen Beard in the UK on the robots revolutionizing farming now for some related links automation in farming doesn't just have to mean robots. Robot's there are other ways that tech continues to infiltrate agri-business here in the US. Drones can help with monitoring crops checking for hydration levels so that watering schedules can be adjusted dynamically. They can spray pesticides and autonomous tractors and harvesters could do the monotonous back and forth driving over miles of fields old. Forbes looks into this in detail and says that it's bringing the high-tech west coast and the rural rust belt together as farming tools become increasingly software independence. That old question of who actually owns them is cropping up again. Farmers have started hacking. Their tractors manufacturers like John. Deere basically lock them down around to stop what they would call an authorized repair work. The farmers the vice interview say when something breaks down. They can't get to a dealer and they don't necessarily want to pay for that. I'm Jackie Stewart. And that's marketplace tech.
Clashes While Deciding The Rules of The impeachment Trial
"Risk partisanship great progress yesterday as Senate Republicans and Democrats clashed on the rules governing the impeachment trial of president Donald Trump but while the proceedings presided over by Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court might have been easy enough to follow by those in the Senate chamber for those of us at home perhaps we might be forgiven for scratching our heads south to break it all down for us ABC legal analyst royal Oakes so in effect what happened yesterday was just deciding on the rules of engagement right exactly right the Democrats had several amendments they wanted what song they wanted to change the situation to add witnesses the ability to subpoena people and documents and in every case the Republicans voted it down but the good news for the Democrats is that they they get a do over on that after the opening statements which will pick the next week or so then there will be another year re visitation of the question in terms of whether or not to go for subpoenas and witnesses and the crack in the dam for the Democrats may be the fact that McConnell was apparently forced to change the rules from twelve hour days to eight hour days early at the urging of the moderate Republicans three or four of them that can switch power over the Democrats so if those same Republicans such as senator Collins of Maine was indicated she does like the idea of bringing witnesses and if they will join the Democrats than after the opening statements were likely to see much longer trial okay so Chief Justice are Roberts had to admonish both sides yesterday briefly explain what happened there you know the tempers just flared when you have the senators and their lawyers basically arguing with each other for twelve hours things really got out of hand in terms of just the the level of discourse in the he just calls to remind people that they are in the world's greatest deliberative body he wanted to make sure that they each other with respect it's not all he can do because of the unusual role Sir in a normal trial the judge completely runs the show makes all the rulings here every single ruling the judge might make could be over ruled by a majority of the Senate so his role is generally ceremonial but here just want to keep tempers in check all right well we're glad we have you to watch it moment by moment by moment for us thank you so much ABC's legal analyst
Senate's McConnell eases marathon late-night impeachment schedule
"Back to our top story the Senate impeachment trial of president Donald Trump they're all revisions as lawmakers debate the rules for the proceedings the first Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell proposed to condense schedule that could have bled opening arguments into the middle of the night when the resolution was read into the record a change twenty four hours over up to three session days means eight hour days not twelve hour days another concessional out the house record to be admitted as evidence we're told the changes were made to satisfy senator Susan Collins and other Republicans who could sway the still unresolved question of witnesses Aron Kader ski ABC news Washington as the impeachment trial ramps up a poll is out and the polls suggest the most Americans do believe that the president abuse the powers of the presidency just over fifty percent of respondents in an N. P. R. P. B. S. newshour Marist poll released today say trump has encouraged election interference eighty eight percent of Democrats agree with that statement as well as fifty one percent of independents fifty six percent of respondents say they believe trump has not done much or has done nothing at all in an effort to stop interference in this year's presidential election while forty one percent said they believe the U. S. is not very prepared or not prepared at all to keep November's election
AI & Us
"AI will a make phenomenal companies and tycoons faster. And it will also displace jobs faster than computers. The internet is already happening. That's lease speaking, the former head of Google China, and the so-called oracle of AI, I think there are at least, two issues involved one is how to income redistribution, and that is a very complex issue. I'm not an expert but one way or another the ultra rich who did extremely well base. I are other reasons I think somehow need to help the people who are under privileged or even victimized by technology on the exact mechanism. I don't know. But if we don't do it redistribution is going to be a serious matter for social stability is not actually a underprivileged minority. It will become a underprivileged majority. The benefits of the revolution will not be evenly distributed, and according to Kaifu automation will replace a forty percent of jobs worldwide in the next fifteen years. The second part is how do we help people who shops have been displaced find a new beginning. We asked the question. What can I an automation, not doom? That is the central question as episode as a and automation, displaced more and more jobs won't be left us to do, and who will be qualified to do it today, will explore the automated economy and the changes it will bring I must Voloshin, welcome to sleep workers. So cara. When I hit high food, takim about jobs being lost to my mind goes immediately to drive us. 'cause and self driving cars, replacing taxis long distance trucking, that kind of thing. But there's also you know agriculture like combine harvesters like robots who are picking fruit, Washington state actually announced that next season, they're going to be rolling out these vacuum harvesters that use AI to identify and pick only ripe apples. Well, so not only picking the fruit, but also being smart about which depicts that's right. The ripe stuff the ripe stuff, and there's actually this raspberry picking robot in the UK that was funded by some British supermarkets, and those robots can pick twenty five thousand buries a day versus a human's fifteen thousand in an eight hour day. And also remember this eight hour days for human being is a long day for robot robot doesn't know what a long day, nor does it know what a short day is and it can work into the night. Right. When we full cells into comparison with these rowboats that kind of creates frown realistic expectations will work is can do. Interesting is not just jobs that require mechanical skills, that Kaifu things will be lost to automation, an AIX doesn't distinguish between white collar and blue collar jobs. So any job has routine element. Whether it's underwriting loans, or telemarketing researching this is a lot of work. The first AI podcast may not be too far off. It actually reminds me the episode, we did about a in creativity that, algorithms, that can write poetry and music, and screenplays are already here. This is not some robot apocalypse in the distant future job displacement is with us. Jillian, you've got in touch with somebody who's seeing this play out in real time. Yeah. Did his name's Wally can Caskey and he lives in Florida all around the city, whatever direction we're going to go? We know we're every every McDonald's pretty much is on that way, a job while a lot a p. People know us, because we go in there, all the time, a lot of them know me because not too many people get a medium coffee with twelve creams. You could twelve. Yeah. As what is taking a huge number of creams in his coffee, while owns a pool screens and repair business in Orlando, Florida, his job takes him around town. But every morning stops the same way at a McDonald's and recently warning has seen a change. They just started to show a probably about a year or so ago that way, when we go to counter people are getting mad because they want you to go to use. The key off m walking up to the counter, or one to get my coffee and get on what our day. They're like, oh, you got to use the key us. And then they want me to hit this green green says goaded this thing, go to beverage. Okay. Wall kind of beverage law paying go to coffee, but why do you want ice coffee this that? And then instead of me saying twelve cream and she hears me now. I get a hit the machine like twelve times. Well times to get it because I times I gotta hit it to get the twelve. The thing is not someone out of a job. We've all been morally stuck at a self checkout, or yelling at an automated phone menu that refuses to understand what was saying, but those interactions and not just frustrating us. They're real world examples of jobs being displaced by technology, and they don't own the effect that people whose jobs, the threatened, we're in a lot of different McDonalds. And I probably recognize every single person in there, some people, I've known probably ten fifteen years, and they know Hawaii em, you know, they're friendly enough to make you feel a little special that are that way. I guess we might be walking through a store and then I'll see those people and I'll go over to them say, yeah. You're from McDonald's of that. And then they'll be like, yeah. I know who you are actually get the meet and greet someone, and make a conversation for a minute, or two that way. Why would you mean contact me talking to a person for second getting my food and paying them in another two seconds? There shouldn't have been nothing wrong with that process. So janine. How did this come about what made you want to include? He story in the post offer. One thing I, I love Wally, but these are also familiar stories. Right. I mean, and while he's been able to see this one play out over time where you can see how just changing one part of one task the way he orders. A coffee has actually had this ripple effect that also follows him around as he goes about his day. Yeah. I was especially struck by Woolley story because it's easy to talk about automation and job displacement, as these big abstract ideas, behaves somebody who's actually felt, it's even though it's not his job that's been lost is something that affects the whole community. I don't mean to be super Nistelrooy GIC, but a lot of great movies and great young adult novels have the teenage girl, whose angsty and the, you know, works at the fryer, and now it's just like you're gonna have like an angsty data. Scientist mulling over the express checkout, crochet over the screen. Well, those, those golden notches. They're very enduring symbol for America and other this year. Mcdonnell's quiet an AI company for three hundred million dollars. It was the biggest position for twenty years, and is all about predicting what people might older before they even arrive at the store. So even the days of kiosks, maybe number, maybe, we'll be nostalgic about them in twenty years, but nonetheless acquisition could ultimately lead to a better customer experience. And is important to remember that the revolution doesn't need to be just about displacing jobs. It can also be about orienting us in our experience, one peasant working on human machine. Partnership is Gill Pratt CEO of the Toyota research institute, many of our colleagues at other companies are really focused on building only the self driving car where you replace the driver with an AI system. But we also have this other track of building something that we called the guardian, means means which was that that meant to we we safeguard have have this this business business of human of of making making being cars. cars. Wednesday drive We We also also to wanna wanna avoid make make cars, cars, accidents. a a lot lot more more safe, safe, Into a void crashes. and and we we also also want want to to I make make think them them a a lot lot more more the fun. fun. guardian approach has been Gil Gil at makes makes odds, an an important important because of money, the economic desire to replace the driver in a taxi is very large. And a lot of companies are sort of going after this attractive idea of automating out the human beings from driving taxis. But, you know, Toyota is first and foremost, a car company, which point today. Innovation is driven by the market companies like Uber and tested. Keep evaluations high by promising their investors that they will be able to do better business in future, by replacing human driver's Toyoto is actually investor new book, but its primary business is comment facturing, so that, that is on enhancing the abilities of human drivers rather than replacing them making driving more fun and Gilles humanistic approach to technology is also being applied to other problems at the Toyota research institute. We want to allow people to age in place with dignity. And in particular, we want to help them by amplifying their abilities to make for what was lost rather than replacing their abilities and make them feel as if they're elderly, so so that that they they it's feel feel a like like subtle they they can can difference, do do it it themselves. themselves. and it's And And very easy to that's that's get a a it little little wrong. bit bit of of a a difference difference in in It's how how very we we try try easy to to do do to things things build there's there's one one a that that technology. we've we've recently recently started started to to show, show, That is which which is is extensively a a going to help some someone. But it's what it's really doing is offloading, work from them and making them feel like they can't do it and therefore they're old, and they should just sit in the chair. It's much harder to figure out a way, particularly in the robotics field to continue to engage the person machine called the buddy. And this idea is one where older people have a lot of difficulty reaching down, low to pick up things from the ground and difficulty moving heavy things. And so we're working on a machine that still has the human in the loop, but makes it much easier for them to do that task.
