"Org how i'm fada an island and we're from austin texas today excited because it is our first day back at school after year and a half of home schooling. This podcast was recorded at. it is to eight. P m on monday august thirtieth twenty twenty one. Things may have changed by the time. You hear this okay. He does show. that is cute. Oh my goodness. I'm so impressed. I could not get my kids to be so On script today was my daughter's first day to so dropped her off this morning. She was excited and terrified. So my kids start next week. So i mean i'm glad to be sending them somewhere away but hey there is the npr politics podcasts. I might use roscoe. I cover the white house. Montanaro senior political editor and correspondent. And i'm mara liasson national political correspondent. It was supposed to be infrastructure summer And before that it was supposed to be a summer of freedom maybe even a some a love but we have not gotten any of that instead. President vibe. It as managed to negotiate a bipartisan trillion. Dollar infrastructure deal. He did get that done. And there is a process starting on even on an even larger economic and social plan That framework passed the house But rather than being able to travel the country selling his plan or celebrating freedom. Dominica biden is dealing with a lot of other very serious problems from rising cova cases afghanistan a major hurricane. It has not been the summer. That people envision no but that often happens in presidencies. You know this is. The presidency is really tested. When these unforeseen events crop up. How does it president deal with it. How do they show presidential leadership. Are they able to console people. Are they able to show competence to have things run smoothly After a difficult situation that's why in a lot of cases presidents are elected and they really can forge their legacies in these kinds of moments. You know the biden administration has shown to be pretty adept when they're on script but off script here we've at least seen with the afghanistan withdrawal And you know perhaps Misplaced trust in the afghan government really threw off the plan that they had in place for withdrawal and they're having to respond more. It seemed like during the the trump administration was kind of a weird especially the first few years because before cove it. They didn't really. They had a lot of crises but they were all kind of self inflicted or most of them were largely self inflicted on. They did have a major hurricane hurricane maria but now president biden is facing all of these crises external crises for the most part That are not as dominican said. They're not on script. Are we learning anything about president biden's ability to manage these external crises. The problem for president biden right. Now is not a message problem. It's that he made a grave miscalculation in afghanistan. he was wrong. He was one hundred and eighty degrees wrong about how far and how fast the taliban would move he thought that he would conduct this evacuation when the afghan government and the afghan military was still in charge of kabul. And it didn't happen and for a moment there The white house was actually trying to get back on message. They were saying yes. The taliban move faster but look we're moving over a hundred thousand people out of kabul then the bombing happened thirteen. Us soldiers died And there's no way to spin that at all and the other problem for president biden is when you listed all these crises wildfires a hurricane those are kind of normal crises that happened to presidents even cove it has become the new normal but afghanistan was a crisis. You could argue of choice. In other words. He decided to pull out. He decided to pull out by a certain deadline and president biden ran on competence. And that's why for him competences even more important because it's part of his brand and afghanistan the afghanistan exit just looks incredibly incompetent. The i think that's the biggest issue that mara hits on. Is it's a real gut punch to that You know that narrative that he ran on that he was the competent alternative to trump and while trump didn't competently handle the current virus pandemic and nats. What biden was really focused on. You know the afghanistan withdrawal sort of probably took Outside the white house even by surprise for You know the level or lack there of competence for that draw down which You know really undercuts. The premise of the biden presidency mara. Is there a sense. That having all of these other issues to talk about whether it's afghanistan or or or or hurricanes or what have you in some way that having those issues even if they are negative negative That that could leave more room for democrats to negotiate in congress on this big You know deal that is supposed to change the social framework and in the social safety net And that that could give democrats more room to get something done That's an interesting theory. So the idea is that republicans are so busy. Criticizing him on afghanistan. They don't have time to criticize him on the three point. Five trillion dollar social safety net playing. Well the but the thing. That's interesting about that is they already weren't criticizing the thing that's been amazing about the republican critique of biden. It has almost nothing to do with his legislative proposals. Of course there are republicans who say this three point. Five trillion dollar package is just way too big and it's going to explode the deficit by and large republicans have been much more focused on cultural issues than they have been on. Joe biden's legislative agenda and remember. Joe biden ran as a moderate on culture issues but as a pretty progressive liberal on economic issues..
Destenie Nock of Carnegie Mellon University on Fixing Energy Poverty
"My research group investigates how energy poverty will be affected by energy transitions an creates methods for identifying who is experiencing energy poverty when people hear the word poverty they usually think of people who have trouble affording their basic needs and the energy space most people assume in individuals energy port if they spend more than six percent of their income meeting their energy needs. The problem is that this assumes everyone is spending all the money. They need to keep their house at a comfortable temperature cook and use all of the other electricity appliances. We have become dependent on this misses. The people who use space heaters and their ovens to heat their homes due to high natural gas and oil prices and what about the people who keep their houses really hot in the summer because they cannot afford electricity in my research group we have created an energy poverty metric called the energy equity gap which identifies the households that are cutting their electricity consumption to reduce their financial burden. The energy equity gap is based on the difference in outdoor temperatures which members of different income groups are likely to start using their a c. We find that. The energy equity gap between low in high income groups ranges from four point seven degrees fahrenheit to seven point five degrees fahrenheit meaning on average low income households. Wait seven degrees longer to turn. On their ac units. Some households will even wait until it is above eighty degrees. This puts them at risk of heat. Stroke and heat. Exhaustion foregoing air-conditioning also increases the humidity in the house meaning the occupants will be at greater risk from mold asthma and allergens. We hope this new dimension of energy poverty will be used in addition to traditional income based energy poverty metrics to reduce the number of people suffering from energy poverty.

"You could tell. It wasn't supposed to work that way to work but it wasn't working just right. Everybody was pretty frustrated. Look good it look perfect. It just had this one little catch in it. That wasn't quite right now. If you're a thing like me an old guy and you've spent numerous decades on christmas eve putting toys together. You've assembled barbecue girls you've assembled lawn mowers ikya furniture. All kinds of things over the years. You'll learn one thing when it doesn't quite fit. You wanna put a hammer make a fit. But something's not right and if you just turn a piece or a part flip over one hundred and eighty degrees in look exactly the same as before the now magically seemingly everything fits fine and that was the case with the leg press. I suggested we just take this piece. That was moving. Flip it over one hundred and eighty degrees and maybe the friction point go away. Everybody else thought that was the dumbest thing ever because what would be different in. Looked exactly the same. What the way it was versus the way i was suggesting there is no difference but i trust interest in. Finally everybody agreed. We took it apart somewhat. Flip the peace over. That i was referring to and while la it just doing that turning it one hundred eighty degrees friction point was gone. This was exactly how it was supposed to assemble. It's weird. It looked exactly the same before and after just flipping. This one piece made a difference. So what's the story here. How's this old guy hero. Everybody couldn't quit talking about it. They were so impressed that i had the mechanical knowledge to simply look at this piece and flipping around and make everything work. There were no instructions. Were flying by the seat of panzer as i said. Don't be too impressed. I've done this so many times. I know all the secrets and most old guys do. This is why old guys can be important to you. You young people need to listen to this. They're really two lessons here. The first one is that the best way to learn from mistakes. All of the mistakes i learned from a half a century practically putting stuff together i knew or felt like i knew flipped at peace round is going to work and it did. I ever learned from my previous failures. The second thing to learn is that obviously old guys know some stuff from all that experience. All of the previous experience of us old guys means we do know some stuff so young folks extrapolate out if an old guy can work a miracle on a lake breath machine. What else can we do. How about advice advice is good. Don't dismiss what sounds like a crazy old guys ideas just trying to help you. He's likely been there before and is offering some real help..

"This this is really interesting. And talking about the new issue. Which i believe just came out july august edition. What can you tell us in terms of the highlights or even the cover story as well. Yeah the one we've just produced. We have one annual summer. Reading issue will risk usually comes out ten times a year in print in the pandemic we drop down a little bit to a couple more double issues but so the summer reading issue is usually the one that people took on vacation. And you know. The mars is the kind of magazine that cells in airports and train stations. And it's been a challenge. The thing okay when people are in lockdown lots of the country. What does that mean for their needs. You know but we did a bunch of fiction poetry. memoir writers are writing about the pandemic. but they're also really being escapist. I think so in now. When there's a story on a norman jewison who's a famous film director who made moonstruck which has been a really popular film independent. So there's a a writer named wells who went and interviewed some of the old cast and characters Cope dukakis on on share and eliminated caucus. Pasta will making the issue. So it's a bit of nostalgia. And and and cultural conversation right now and just in terms of business model invention that the war is sold in airports train stations. A what about when it comes to subscriptions was perhaps during covert was their move a little bit subscriptions or not. We have not seen that. Although i think it's something we could probably engineer. I'm really interested to see what magazines have done. Well out of the pandemic will we saw. Because we're a nonprofit. There was a considerable increase in donations in the pandemic so the funding is fine but the digital has grown hugely for the first part of this year. It's up more than thirty percent of all time. So more and more people are reading this online. The print has dropped. Which is expected again. Because you're not getting people finding it in their their at home so we'll think about how to manage that next year. We're still sort of dealing with and emigrate now. Absolutely as as we all are in one way or another and jessica what has been your of kind of relationship with the war is at. How long have you been working there. For example i been editor Magazine for store. And before that i was a writer or contributor but i feel that i'm part of the new era the you know the the media climate has changed so much in the last five years little in the last ten or fifteen so since thaw was founded it started being. Don't want to say highbrow but like hydraulic it. Was it was for intellectuals than it was wasn't ashamed about that can be a long story but anyway we registered for charitable nonprofit status in the mid two thousands and that slowly has evolved the type of journalism that we do so the stuff that we're working on now is fact based everything's fact checked it has everything has an educational component. Even when we're writing about selene. Dion there's something you learn about like our relationship was deliberately or you know canadianness out of out of that experience. So i've been here. I would say for what. I would call the taming of the digital era which this'll years we've seen huge growth but in a world when the internet has so much available to people we really had to figure out what was already genitive Well and i think magazines like yours. I think there is. There's a bright future. Because i do generally think people are looking for kind of long form pieces especially when it comes to print products like the warriors away. There's a evaluation long form. That's a bit counterintuitive. And that again is what i've worked for a lot of different types of media..

The question is why did this happen. For tens of thousands of years in every civilization. It happened in china in greece. In india the incas the mayans the africans and so why did people tolerate it for so and just as important over a few short decades. Most countries did away with illegal trips. I i understand. Slavery still happens today but in legal terms most countries said enough and it may not be a complete coincidence that that happened just as you started using oil and energy because a single barrel of oil contains five to ten years of a human beings labor.

It's about the same size Those are what's called tradit. Let's let's start at a regular air conditioning. System has a unit. That's outdoors has refrigerant lines that rump from that outdoor unit to something indoors and it moves the energy with that refrigerant. Okay so in the summertime. it's sex the heat out of the house. The refrigerant carries it outside and then that is sent to the outside. We're all hot air right in heating mode. If you have a heat palm it takes heat from the colour. Outdoor air puts it into that refrigerant. That refrigerant is moved to the inside of the house and that heat is released in this case we take the heat from outside in the air and actually put it directly into water in a unit that sits outside the house and in that water is circulated between inside outside or was the advantage versus the air So in this case it's directly making hot water. And i can use the hot water for showers and things primarily when you start looking at energy loads for these highly efficient houses dominated by hot water and so in some ways we make that hot water and then we kind of skim off that hot water to heat the house also so it is especially in the summertime. It is highly efficient mechanism to make domestic hot water. Because it's hot outside and all have to do is raise the temperature water safe from eighty degrees to one hundred forty which is pretty easy for.

The depth suddenly decreases as the the edge of a submerged arctic plateau defined the southerly rim of its base in their this ocean contained several large and some groups of small islands but these are mostly near the shore and connected with the neighbouring continent by shallow waters showing that they rise from a submerged plateau. The average depth of the indian ocean is about fourteen thousand feet it surface water is warmer and saltier than that of any other. And it's wins into weather are more regular and peaceful than in either the atlantic or the northern pacific. The arctic ocean is the well defined body of water around and probably over the north pole. It is connected with the pacific. Only by the narrow and very shallow bering strait and with the atlantic by comparatively narrow openings. It has been fairly well explored as far north as the parallel of eighty degrees and found to contain many islands. But it appears that there is great depth of water north of spitsbergen and northeast of greenland making it probable that the trough of the atlantic reaches two or beyond the pole itself. Most of its area is covered with drifting ice. The ant arctic ocean is regarded as the space of water within the antarctic circle but this is surrounded by his own deep ocean unbroken almost halfway to the equator except by the narrow southern part of south america and by new zealand it is an area apparently rather shallow of ice fog and tempestuous gales inclosing lands of unknown extent but these geographical distinctions are merely convenient methods of speech.

But can they feel is visceral experience when they're around you. There's not a substitute for that.

That's going on right now. And i just don't think we can get away with surface level connection with people. It's now more important than ever that you're in the trenches with people that you're mentoring them to the extent you can and it's not like you can do that with everybody in your company but you can certainly do it with your frontline leaders and those are the people that you you know inject that to her to go out and create a cultural mike shift in your business if you need it but it all starts with me and not just comes from my experience having really really screwed up really bad as leader doing everything i told you.

"eighty degrees" Discussed on Daily Tech News Show
"That's fascinating me but you also have a solar panel as well so you don't have to schlep it to the office. I guess yes. That's right. So i got a solar panel. I originally i like when i when i first got this. I wanted it to be a one hundred percent. Autonomous vehicle that i could live out of for several years and just interact with bears at coordinate with people exclusively through zoom Like i said that it works well as a mobile bedroom that. I'm probably most of the time when i'm traveling and working unless i'm camping in leisure state where i don't have to worry about this if i'm working i'm probably going to have a port of call through some friends house or something nearby However i did want it to be fully autonomous Released have the option of being fully autonomous from an energy perspective. So i bought a solar panel. They've become incredibly cheap incredibly efficient. When i was a kid Solar panels were these dense. Black bricks they could maybe power Like a flashlight and now they're both much much more efficient. I was going to originally drill holes into the roof of the scam. And i was going to put it on top and then caucus and seal it and all of that so that it would just have a perpetual Solar panel feeding into jaggery. I elected not to do that. Not because it would have been problematic from a technological perspective or an energy perspective. It would be much better that way. I didn't do that because the scam does tend to heat up. And i hate all temperatures above eighty degrees and i hate all humidity above twenty percent and so i didn't want to force myself into a situation where if i was going be outdoors for a long period of time. I'd have to park the scam in the sun. So i ended up keeping the solar panel mobile I have a long cord. That i can use with it and so if i wanna park under a tree i can leave the solar panel out somewhere else. The other benefit to that is that solar panels become far more effective when you're able to adjust the angle that they're at maybe forty forty to sixty percent more efficient. If you can tell it anglet so theoretically if i were out camping but working and i wanted to recharge that jaggery i could say set it up in the morning one particular location and then after lunch move it to the other side of the scampi the issue would be security. If somebody wanted to steal it gotcha Well folks We'll have links to all the products that that he was talking about. in our show notes daily technique show dot.
Hands On Review of the Fujifilm X-E4 Mirrorless Camera
"When the xc four was announced. I thought for sure that i was going to buy it. After my review period expired. i looked at it. I go man. That's a good looking camera Had a lot of the features that i wanted. And i just go. I cannot wait to get my hands on this handsome little devil. It's controls are familiar. Because they're very similar to the x one hundred v that i have right now super compact cameras even more compact believe it or not then the x one hundred the the image quality. I was very confident that it would be solid and then on top of everything else. I really liked the revised twenty-seven millimeter f two point. Eight lens that's bundled with it. Nice little pancake lens. Compact camera interchangeable lenses. What could go wrong right. And my thought was since. I have enjoyed the x one hundred v so much. This would give me an interchangeable lens. Fuji film camera that i could play with fuji film. Cameras do great with adapters and lenses from other brands. And all that kind of stuff. I'll talk a bit more about that. A little later in the show but for right now it suffices to say that if i had that twenty seven millimeter. Nf i liked it. I've got enough other lenses that would fit on it that i could be a pretty happy kit but it isn't perfect. Either and the more. I used it the more that some of those blemishes began to appear. So i have my personal pros and cons of share them with you. I have a verdict. But before we do that let's get into the basic features of this camera. The basic specs so that we know what we're talking about here. Okay so it is a twenty six point one megapixel. Aps see so as crop sensor x. trans Sensor that is six two four zero six thousand two hundred forty by four one six oh resolution as the maximum resolution that you can get out of this camera. Nice big files. I i like the size of the files and generally speaking. I like the way they look. It has an x processor. Four image processor so. It has the state of the art image processor for fuji film. This is one thing that fuji film does that a really. Like which is they don't they. Don't downgrade that stuff under the hood you know. Rather you're buying their flagship or are you buy this or buy that. You're gonna get the best processor that they have available at the time. I love that about them. You get four. K video at thirty frames a second and you get full. Hd up to two hundred and forty frames a second. That's very nice. It has a lovely electronic viewfinder two point. Three six million dot I found it very comfortable and easy to use. I liked it a lot in. Its over on the left side. Okay so it's kind of a range finder style that way. A three inch tilting. Lcd touchscreen and this touchscreen is designed even more flexible than the one on the x one hundred v. Because no he can you tilt it downwards it can hold camera up over your head it tilts up in fact it tilts all the way up and over one hundred and eighty degrees so that you can use it as a selfie screen and take pictures of yourself or whatever you need to do there so that is an addition and the screen works really well. It's an excellent screen and the armed seal solid I know some people have expressed concern about the ribbon. The communications ribbon that is exposed when you tilt the screen all the way up. I don't see that as a problem. It didn't really bother me. Plus is not a weatherproof camera anyway. So you're not going to be shooting in the rain with. It
Late Leipzig Victory Heats up Title Race
"We'll stop in the bundesliga. We thought no leipzig get thrown away. The opportunity to keep pushing by munich. There were two knelt down halftime against borussia moenchengladbach but a brilliant second half performance and a late goal from soil with see them beat god back by three goals to to to continue to put the pressure on bind at the top of the table. Janocko fuel itself is with us yet. Thank goodness we still have a title race. Just thank goodness to halftime. There was so many analyzes marker also sorting out gladbach. There will be calm now before he takes over. And then livesey made the bundesliga excited for two minutes with the irony at halftime. But thank god. Thank god for everybody. Neutral love love the bundesliga. There was fantastic. Second half of our show and they slowly came back. Glad back more tired had some chances on contracts but policy and kuku and solo there so many attackers. It's lives. You haven't score enough goals after chicken and van left them after last season but they produce tonight and we haven't excitement we have. We have a tight race in germany. Dan could you imagine. Say those words. I know i don't know very much unlikely. After the to say bad in the first half. Yeah yeah their web bad but but say having said that. I mean they had a ball the lot. They didn't create a lot gluck. Unbelievable efficient mcconnell had one of those half where look like the most clumps defender being around after being the most attractive defender around and toronto and half on peres demanded to nil and everything look like well typical vion after their gala show earlier on the day and now we have this situation fribourg against lives on friday if they win that top of the league at least for twenty four hours then the big game between via munich endorsements says you mentioned yance still two point separates vine and live sick. Let's switch attention to that wind show for buying a day. They were certainly facts that the way this game ended you. They could just keep scoring. Every few minutes on the will keep on scoring. I mean live on dose keno. Getting closer to that magic gaffe miller torty goals in a season scoring two goals today but there was a whole wasn't ed when they played their home three three losing in frankfurt against eintracht. And then they're back to the norm. Winning high in champions league winning five one against cologne. it's not like five or six goals better than them on the page but they just so efficient gerrad sky. Think a ended up with three assists. Today nabu just scoring for fun. Uneven ship matang scoring so i mean by will be all the way of the understatement of the nights at just into content main if levin dusky reaches at forty gaumont. It's unbelievable because then you compare yourself with the best goal Of all time and yes you could say the by a munich was fantastic. But you can say the same about this team. I mean we are talking about whole on emba- pay silva or were all these goalscoring sensations around europe the moment but levin dose gays to complete striker but the the goal getter part of his game is unbelievable to he's hungry and passionate for goals is unbelievable and you saw the way to the goals. Today you had a you finally got. Thomas miller on to fourteen seconds to make an assist for him. I just turned around. He knows all the time where where he is on the full patriots and if he beats the record i still doubted but he's getting closer meanwhile bruce feldman turning on in the second half in proved to be a comfortable win in the end. I'll tell you what twenty twenty one jaden sanitary. It's very different than twenty. Two thousand nine hundred and sounds like christmas press the reset. Button is incredible. Twenty twenty cents show. At least the half of it was very influenced with all that happened around us some monsters united being on the phone all the time. Hundred and twenty million hundred million europe but now he's on fire and the way he's playing at the moment he's playing with all his strength all the passionate he's running all the time he's body. Language is turn like hundred and eighty degrees unbelievable. I also today. I a writer who scored that goal. And i think that that sums up the way dole put his playing at the moment ailing all on. I'm not sorry. Putting in northern region after solo scored for for leipzig later tonight. But but then allen all on one against one against goalkeeper typically get up. We'll try himself. Just give it the ball away. And i think that sums up that door at the moment. They won three games in a row. Intense being under pressure as being a lame duck after the appointment of mark but they are back on track another only three points behind eintracht frankfurt for that very very valuable champions league place for they make it. Yeah yes. I think they will. Because i don't think well eleven games eintracht frankfurt had and with no losses i winston role. Then losing it to to bremen and as long as they can keep on winning these kind of games which has been difficult for them. They're lower teams like being felt today. They will keep on doing it but mind you next game. It's frankfurt against got. That could be a frankford. Win on there and Munich and then we can have that six points again. Because volts berg are winning games just like behind everybody under the radar of everybody of body so they could end up taking place in the bundesliga

It was a railroad and a bridge. Yeah it was somewhere on. The red river in the area of of hanoi wasn't right in the city. I don't recall exactly which bridge created dat cow railroad. I'd read so.

Also we have only rockets and the rockets. Do not arm when you're pulling data. You can't launch a rocket if you're have very heavy g forces plus they don't arm until they're a safe distance away from the airplane so they're forced kind of defenseless in this situation and the knicks kept cutting off the turn and after about one hundred and eighty degrees.

Covid-19 vaccine: First person receives Pfizer jab in UK
"Well. Biontech and pfizer's landmark coronavirus vaccine has been given to the first person in the uk as part of a mass immunization program. The uk's vaccine roll it is being watched keenly across the rest of the world has other countries begin. Prepare to vaccinate their own populations for the latest on this. Let's talk to our health and science correspondent. Dr chris smith. Chris is also consultant for all the gist at cambridge university. I good afternoon. Chris tyler so i guess So far so good at least we have. We have a soundbite already. We had at the top of the program from this ninety year old woman. Who's been there the first to be to vaccinated chris last week. We saw a little bit of Chest thumping on the part of some politicians the uk saying look. This is great The uk is steaming ahead. How eagerly he would you say not. Just the immediate neighbors across this side of the channel but around the world are going to be watching. What are they going to watching. Forty you think over the coming days and weeks as this rolls out well think it will be a confidence boost to those other countries because no one likes to be i they unless it's a shorty. A dead cert. There's always some risk with any kind of intervention. And this is no different. So having a regulator a regulator that's world renowned the jewelry the medicines and healthcare products regulatory agency. Which is the. Uk's regulator which prior to just having jurisdiction over the uk walls prior to the brexit transition kicking providing that service for the whole of europe. Now europe does that through the ama it. It gives a precedent that other countries can look to and say right. Okay one fairly ferry. Big actor has gone ahead with this nathan. It's good therefore we're happy to Gives us some confidence too. So i think that there's always that aspect to it and it's coming good for the uk in the sense that it saying here we are. We've had a pretty rough time with this. But now some some fantastic triumph of sciences kicked in and we're about to start deploying this across the country and we're gonna we're gonna protect our outpatients. We have this type of approval from a respected Player how much do agencies elsewhere of course within the eu and obviously similar bodies all over the world. how much does it short circuit For them as you said. It establishes a precedent And does that mean that you have you know days or weeks then knocked off the process. Of course he. I'm sitting here in switzerland. Obviously a lot of talk as well about of course is also on the uk as well so does it actually then really prevent And and and and you do you have a moment where you have a real series of time locked off. They'd process well. The europeans are considering this through the jurisdiction of the ems the european medicines agency but the uk is still subject to a you know and in the uk is used one particular rule which is a regulation one seven four which is a specification for in public health crisis. Or emergency you can. Emergency approved something for use in your particular jurisdiction so the nhra has used that to approve this for the uk. Any other country in europe could've done the same thing so it's quite interesting that they've actually decided to white on a broad overarching decision from the a. But it doesn't matter. Who your regulator is they have to meet the same checks and balances. Because at the end of the day they all the gateway between a manufactured product and the public who going to receive it and it's on their neck that the decision rests so then going to say a will. They did it so we'll kind of ignore with this stuff would just sign it off. They are going to apply wherever they are in the world the same rigorous checks that they would apply whether or not someone else regulated something but it does help to give them confidence and he gives them a bit more political impetus when they see that. Another major regulator has taken a product which is also going to be wheeled out in that particular country and said well you know what's good enough is enough the ganda over the past few weeks. Of course astrazeneca moderna in this case. Biontech visor they. They've all been popping up in the headlines. Chris and of course various speeds that of course these approval processes have been working at now. We have three vaccines. We're we're now told her that there might also now be a fourth which is very much in play might be getting closer to approval. How different are all of these in terms of effectiveness and and do they all function largely the same way or do you. Also because obviously many countries that are hedging their purchasing all of them. Am i going to be particularly concerned. In a couple of weeks. If if i choose to get the moderna vaccine versus the astrazeneca versus the by pfizer one. In fact i think the uk has go options in on seven different vaccines and yes. You're right three of them are nearing the finishing nine in the uk but there are many others waiting in the wings around the world. There are ten different types of vaccine the work in ten different types of ways or being generated a more than forty and now in advanced stages of clinical trials. So pretty soon. We're going to have more vaccines than we can shake a stick at up to a point. That's a good thing and it's a good thing because not vaccines are going to be suitable for all people not vaccines are going to be available to all people not vaccines are going to work in all territories and what i mean by. That is if we take the fiso vaccine as an example. This needs to be kept at minus seventy degrees until five days or so before you're going to use all nine hundred and seventy five doses that are in batch and i've just seen a letter go from medical director saying can we make sure that we we use all nine hundred seventy five days in a within the five days so that we don't waste any of this very precious vaccine. Now that's going to be no use whatsoever in some countries where they don't even have a stable. Electricity supply let alone a stable minus eighty degrees freezer. So therefore having lots of options is a powerful thing also We don't know what the long term outcomes with these vaccines against be. We know that they provide pretty high level of protection but short after the vaccination program is finished in other words in in the weeks to a month or so. The person's completed the vaccine course. They're protected with the fis vaccine to the level of about nine hundred ninety five percent. But what happens in five months. What happens in a year. we don't know. And it may well be that other products that come along are able to confer a longer term protection. They might confer a big boost if you give one of those on top of one of the other products. This is a learning process. We're going to be sort of going through this process as time goes on an. It's always good to have more options. Where this sort of things concerned. If if your project yourselves twelve months twenty four months out do you think we also end up in a place because of because of cost because of stability many other things that they're only going to be potentially to vaccines. Is that the way things often go. The other ones might be effective but they might be too expensive as you said they might be too volatile and they fall by the wayside. I so i guess what i'm getting at. Will there sort of a clear winner in all of this in terms of one of the players and obviously the concoction that that ends up within the syringe. Well it's hard to say. I mean you know it's like niels bohr. Who is the forefather of quantum mechanics. Said prediction is very difficult especially when it concerns the future. But it's it's going to be very hard to know because we don't know what the long term outcome with these agencies. They are expensive. These genetic vaccines that pfizer. Madonna offering all pricey the astra zeneca vaccine. Which is still sitting with the regulator here in the uk. At the moment that one will be much cheaper and is also much easier to deploy and store so that there are pros and cons of all these things and it may not come down to simply a case if this one does this and this one does this therefore two horse race. I think we will definitely be a market for a few of these products whether or not. That market's going to be sufficient to sustain all forty plus of the clinical trials that are going on now but but certainly while the world is rushing to get this stuff in sufficient volume. Because that's the issue at the moment the companies just can't push it out the door fast enough the moment it's any partner storm so people are desperate to access whatever vaccine they can as fast as they can and just before we go chris any sense. When you're maybe discussing with your medica- medical call leaks. What the uptake is is going to be. I was talking to a doctor at the university hospital here in zurich the other day his defense was that you know probably just within the hospital owned probably fifty percent of the staff. You know would not be interested in taking the vaccine. Is that sort of a a pretty good gauge. In terms of how the public will look at this. Or if you're not in the medical trenches all day maybe you're going to be keener to take it any any house view from your side. I'm sensing quite a degree of what we dub vaccine hesitancy based on the questions that are coming into various radio programs on participating in basic enquiries from members of the general public and if you look at the day to this come out of the pew research center in america have been running a number of population surveys in the states and originally that was very alarming showed that fifty percent of people would reject a vaccine offered one at that point in time. They recently repeated that survey found that in fact the uptake had risen to fifty from fifty to sixty percents so in other words forty percent. Turn it down. But that's still forty percent. Turn down right now in the uk. We think it's probably going to be Less than that but at the same time still a significant proportion of people are uncertain citing rapid production very rapid approval. As a reason for concern. I do think this is largely going to take care of itself though because what will happen is that because of the way in which these vaccines are being rolled out to high priority high risk groups. I with a trickle down into the younger echo lonzo society over time by the time many of the people who live in countering who is saying. I'm nervous about this. Come to be offered a vaccine. It will have actually been through a very significant proportion of other people and that may well have in still quite a bit confidence into people are safe track record by then so i think it may be one of those short term problems. The actually takes care of itself. That's what i'm hoping anyway. Chris thanks very much for that. That was monocled health and science. Dr chris smith.
Google's Amy Adams Harding on why digital newsrooms should 'act like an e-commerce player'
"Welcoming hike aliens great to hear lessons Yeah so maybe. Let's get started by going through some of the publishers that you work with are they mainly like news focus or do they really just kind of run the gamut. We are mainly focused on news. Kaley but as as you might imagine. News has taken on broad connotation as of late so We focus a lot on local news so working with publishers like lee enterprises or village media up in canada. All the way up through You know the great lady new york times. We work with newscorp the some of their publications so really does run the gamut. Yeah and it sounds like it really runs the gamut to with the new of maybe people on staff and like the size of the publications themselves it can be one or two people and it can be hundreds and it really does depend on the type of news publication that they're covering we also work with broadcasters for example and some longer form news content like business insider or some of the magazine publishers. That are more news focused. okay awesome. yeah so I imagine that at the beginning of twenty twenty the concerns that your publishers. That you work with I'm not sure if you call them clients or partners partners. Yeah i imagine that the concerns that some of your partners had at the beginning of the year are probably very different from the ones that Came into the picture and say march or april But can you talk about Maybe what some of those focuses were at the beginning of the year. That might not be as top of mind now in where some of the New focuses began coming into the mix. Yeah i'd say that it's it's not that the the focus of these publishers has shifted one hundred and eighty degrees but it has sharpened so for example One thing that a year ago we were working with many local news. Publishers are in a more nascent. Forum would be there reader revenue program. I mean we redirect revenue. We we all know that the new york times has made a tremendous success out of their subscription business. But this didn't always filter down to your much smaller local news players but ask the pandemic emerged in as we saw a large and quick drop in ad revenue local news. Publishers called us up and said wait a second. Everything that you've been telling us about forming our reader direct monetization strategy. The time is now. We need to lean on our readers to be able to support ourselves through these uncertain times with the pandemic so that i would say that it has sharpened and accelerated that focus for our local news players in particular. Okay yeah that makes a lot of sense and i know for some of the larger publishers. That myself in my teammates have been covering over the past few months A lot of them decided to remove the paywall from virus related content But that ended up being a pretty significant driver of new subscriptions. I would say You know it was kind of interesting balance of lowering the paywall on that content. Got people more familiar with the brand. Made them wanted to like to support the journalism. More Is that the same thing that happened with some of these smaller. Publishers or more local news based publishers. Did they do that same tactic. Or what were some of the strategies that they took on well whether they employed whether they even had a paywall to begin with Or not the top of the funnel was being filled by this increase in demand for news especially around corona virus and we had several large events globally and in this country so it wasn't just corona virus with that was kicked things off in the beginning of twenty twenty and so our news publishers large and small found that they needed to take advantage of this opportunity to create loyalty amongst their casual readers. And that's something that my team actually focuses on quite a bit That idea of user engagement funnel so capitalizing on the opportunity of what These very important and intense news stories introduced in the facts. We we've been working with a publisher in the philippines called wrap ler and they are one of the largest digital only on news publications. They are and they had concurrently both corona virus reporting as well as their local election and might team worked with them to capitalize on. How do you. How do you take these new eyeballs if you wanna think about it that way and introduce them to the importance of your product and drive loyalty because he can drive a user down that user engagement funnel you can Create loyalty loyalty is the largest predictor of reader direct revenue acquisition. So we worked with them and it was highly successful and they were able to create marge increases in both the readership and their revenue because they were on top of their Of the funnel and driving readers down the funnel

Healthy Eating vs. Pseudo Healthy Eating with Shawndi Borup
"Well, I'm hello and welcome to another edition of the brake cables are cast going to plug wiring noise and the outfit and Fitness World and today off and super honor and have Sean D Bora in the house of show me all the living. So if you can't guess what she's all about it is all about healthy living and Tony is a healthy living wage. It's certified fermentationist a woman after my own heart there and a real food chef who is all about just being living proof that implementing a simple healthy. Lifestyle and healthy habits really promotes Optimal Health and well-being and just really making that easy and accessible to many folks who make to even just overwhelmed about getting back to the kitchen. And so don't you think so much for coming onto the show today? If you could give us a little bit of background about who you are and what sort you into doing the work they're doing in the world thinks long and it's a pleasure to be here such an honor to be part of your podcast and I I love you know, what you do what what this podcast is all about about breaking the rules and we'll get in touch with that and and how that applies to what what I can help your audience to really Implement especially in this time, but my back story, you know, it starts about three decades ago, and it was in the I was I had three young children and they all had their own little chronic issues, but my oldest daughter was she was the most ill with severe asthma and and so I thought Sitting in the rocking chair giving her another breathing treatment in the middle of the night and it just the thought came to me. There has to be a better way and thought just kept cycling through my mind, even though I was doing everything that I possibly knew how to do what to do. And so I was determined that night to find a better way. And so I ended up going to Rome a holistic practitioner and he gave me one sheet of paper and on that one sheet of paper was a list of you know, a list of foods that really nourish and feed the body and I I took that home and I you know, I'm a really competitive person and I decided okay, I'm going to I'm going to do this for one year and I'm going to prove that that food couldn't possibly make that much of a difference in the life in the health of my family and not as dealing with my own chronic issues at the time. I had chronic tendonitis and it was really hard to put shoes and socks on my children and I couldn't go bowling birth. You know do cartwheels in the yard with them or anything either because I was in so much pain and I kind of ignored it. You know, I was just in my late twenties at the time and I thought oh this just you know was is not really happening and I remember going to the doctor for my wrists and he handed me a prescription and he said, oh, he said you just got tendonitis and I said great. How long do I have to take this, you know as an anti-inflammatory em said for the rest of your life and that of course didn't sit well with me and I just had a I had a couple of those experiences my daughter would seem to get worse with her asthma and allergies when I gave her cow's milk. And so I asked the pediatrician do you think it would help if I took her off of this and she said it won't make any difference at all. And you know, that's again one of my mother raised tuition that gut feeling said into me like, okay, you need to try this anyways, and so that's what I did is I just started, you know, I took the information from this holistic practitioner that really phone On the whole body and under you know, not just symptoms but really building building a strong immune system really was all what this was all about. And I remember sitting on my couch dog doing my weekly menu. I had my dry erase board on my lap and I looked at the one sheet of paper and everything that he suggested eating and then on the other side of the couch. I had all my recipes the things that I knew how to do home and nothing match up and I and he was a proponent of eating a lot of raw food at least half of your plate because it's the enzymes in raw food that help digest your food and you know Concepts that we're totally foreign to me a hundred and eighty degrees away from the standard American diet, which I had grown up on and and new and so I just started getting back in the office and that's where I started and I started, you know, eliminating refined sugar refined flour, which of course as we you know, it's more talked about today drives blood sugar in the body. Which dog Ives Cravings which drives inflammation which drives chronic illness and so I just started, you know doing one thing at a time and one thing I learned about helping people get back in the kitchen is that if you try to do everything at once you're just going to get overwhelmed and that's when we feel stuck and we stop and so I really emphasize with people that you know, we know that we should be eating, you know, more vegetables. We know that we should be eating less sugar. But how do we make that happen? You know, how do we apply that in in our eating today? So that's where I show me healthy living came about because I wanted to help people to really practice how to feel their best. So that's amazing. I think experience is always off teacher and the mother of all Innovation. And so how long have you been at this and how long did it even take you to kind of get into that seat of showing people healthy eating from like learning wage? Healthy eating right? So I've been teaching people for gosh. I would say fifteen years now probably half of long, you know half of the amount of time that I've been doing it, but you know, I I started this journey, like I said about three decades ago and you know, I I told you that I was going to do that experiment for one year and proved it wrong that food couldn't make sure we make that difference but actually after a year my children's, you know, chronic health issues had completely gone away and there it was so amazing to watch
Oreo Built a ‘Doomsday’ Vault to Protect Its Recipe and Cookies
"Kind, of overplayed I didn't have that on my twenty twenty Bingo Card joke apart from murder Hornets. Another big one people didn't see coming was the asteroid scheduled to hit earth on the US's election day because the of course that's just so twenty twenty. But of course, as you all know, asteroid two, thousand, eighteen, vp one is not actually going to hit earth. As NASA end individual astronomers have explained many times while it is scheduled to get very close to the Earth on November third the asteroid itself is only about six and a half feet in diameter and only has a point one percent chance of entering the Earth's atmosphere, and even if it did, it would disintegrate before causing any actual damage. Blitz like the murder Hornets, what fun is the actual truth when you're trying to be Glib in cynical on the Internet. And thus Oreo has leaned into the asteroid hype and built in actual vault in Norway to protect Oreos in the case of an asteroid spawned apocalypse. And you to be honest while they may be exaggerating on the asteroid thing in apocalypse caused by any number of things doesn't sound too unlikely these days. So maybe Oriole is onto something. But anyways. It was in response to a tweet asking who would protect the orioles. If asteroid two, thousand, eighteen, vp one to hit earth which made oreo decide to build a smaller look alike of the. Vault in Svalbard Norway which holds over half a billion seeds from nine hundred and thirty thousand varieties around the world and is meant to preserve the world's botanic Levy in the case of a doomsday situation. The Global. Oreo Vault was built nearby the famous seed vault and is packed with the oreo recipe as well as a large stockpile of oreo cookies. or together a a video announcing the vaults in while the video is mostly fabricated with actors playing the Oreo reps in the volt architect. Every report I can find about this seems to indicate that the volts is actually real. which like it can be rate this is completely justice done rights. Oreo said in a statement quote as an added precaution, the orioles packs are wrapped in mylar, which can withstand temperatures from negative eighty degrees to three hundred degrees, Fahrenheit and impervious to chemical reactions. Moisture air keeping the cookies fresh and protected for years to come and quotes. Even, if we are to believe that the vault is actually real an even with all of those precautions I, personally a little skeptical about how long those cookies will last especially after what I learned last week from those moldy twinkies. But I mean, Hey, I guess if there is an apocalypse, any survivors will have a bunch of crops to plant from the seed vault and then some orioles munch on while they wait for harvest. so thanks corporate marketing stunts.
The Verdict on Trump's Economic Stewardship
"President Trump speaking to the economic of New York and various economic clubs across the country and we had questioning from Senate O'CONNELL of the Economic Club of Florida David Rudenstine of DC and Mike. O'Neill. The New York we have Michael McKee with us now our chief. Correspondent for all things economic both and. and Michael a very serious conversation here the president's putting out some ideas couple of inflammatory statements like how Joe Biden Presidency would be a socialist dream in American nightmare. But at the end, he was asked about things like infrastructure stimulus national debt did we hear anything new from the President? No, but we haven't been hearing much new from him throughout this campaign. It's he mostly talks about what happened in the previous three or four years and he talks a lot about, of course what happened to the Obama Administration? The questions he was asked about infrastructure spending he didn't answer. He said what he always says about many different things that he has a plan, but there's never any plan they were coming close to a deal on infrastructure at least Democrats in the House and the president when the President got upset with Nancy Pelosi and broke off the talks and that was two years ago and nothing's been done on infrastructure since. The House and Senate have a very big differences about how you would pay for infrastructure and how you'd structure the program. He said today the walls one of the biggest infrastructure projects ever. That's not true. He did shut down the border under the guise pandemic protection. So that part of what he said about the wall was correct he was asked about the deficit. and. Has Somebody. Else says quite often about this. This is one of those. Up his down down his up trump statements, he said the deficit was falling and we were GONNA pay off interest costs and start paying down principal on the deficit before the pandemic hit. That's one hundred percent one, hundred, eighty degrees opposite from what was happening deficit was rising significantly before the pandemic because of the tax cuts so. It's hard to know exactly what he was trying to do other than insult. Joe Biden and and stir up his base. Yes. Absolutely I think that's probably what we can expect from him. As we approach the elections three weeks left and we're going to get viewers questions. You know at some point tomorrow night's tonight and facts as we will be hearing a lot more from the president on economic matters and so on. But really nothing moves the needle. Until we get some more idea of what happens with stimulus and Ardley Nancy Pelosi doesn't look like. She's about to give in to to to president trump's requests or whatever republicans are requesting not that that's now well, even here's the thing we have to remember that even if the speaker of the House and the Secretary of the Treasury agree on some kind of deal, it would have to pass the Senate as well as the house. A number of house members have already suggested Dowse House Democrats have suggested they would vote against it because. They don't think it's big enough and. The question then becomes how many Republicans would vote for it if it's not considered big enough then in the Senate, you don't have fifty senators who approve of it. The Democrats are pretty united against it and half of the Republican senators say they don't want to spend anything. So at this point, there's a lot of focus on wall, street about the talks talks. In quotation marks between Nancy Pelosi and Steven Mnuchin. But the odds of something actually happening particularly before election day very, very small. Yes and for some reason and she wasn't quite care about yesterday when she was speaking with Wolf Blitzer Nancy Pelosi is not willing to even consider this one point eight, trillion dollar stimulus. What is it in their Michael? Can you decipher? that. She's so against she was actually quite angry with the to Democrats that said that they should be accepting this. The part of the play. A part of it is the way the money is distributed. Part of it is the amount of money for states and localities is not enough they believe and part of it obviously is politics. They don't WanNa give, Donald Trump. He kind of victory before the election you remember the last time when the cares act was passed in the twelve hundred dollars was going out for those who got it in check form trump held up distribution of the checks until he could have his name printed on it and last thing Nancy Pelosi wants is for voters to be opening their mail the day before the election and seeing Donald Trump giving them twelve hundred dollars. Yes that is to I'm sure and also presumably that machine is up and running now. So there may not be so much of a delay this time around but there is an argument to suggest that people need cash. Now, no matter how it comes in a matter who gets the credit right Michael Danny lower on earlier saying this country is in trouble there is particularly because more people are losing their jobs. Now, as we're finding more companies go out of business and. The airlines are a perfect example not going out of business, but laying off tens of thousands of people because they don't have any business to do at this point, and that was one of the hopes of the stimulus bills that they could get aid to the airlines in the short-term But nother interesting statistic came out from the New York Fed yesterday of the people who got the stimulus checks the first time around average of about twenty four, hundred dollars each seventy one percent either save the money or paid down debt. They have money in the bank and so if this. Rebound continued to go faster than expected. We might have a tailwind and we might need less of the stimulus checks I think the biggest difference now is that there are going to be people who. Didn't save. Don't have the money who are losing jobs permanently who may need something yeah. I found that phenomenal as well when you consider just how many people are at food banks in food lines as well who were once you know happily employed or all of the people around Orlando that are living motels because they'll also job at. Disney. For example. have to move every two weeks. Otherwise they risk you know Being, a problem for the Ho- The motel owner because after two weeks you can't you know get victim normally you have to go through the court process i. mean there are an array of stories out there about people suffering, Michael. What should we be concentrating on over the next couple of days? It's feels like Joe Biden needs to get more of an economic message out there. Actually, Biden probably needs to publicize it Joe Biden. If you look on their website has a very extensive economic plan that. Involves taxes infrastructure Various Pandemic Recovery ideas and Donald Trump and I'm not saying this to be part of Donald Trump has nothing. If you go to his website, there are literally no proposals for a second term and so it's kind of hard to know. what he would do and Biden perhaps wants to make that case a little bit more Donald Trump talked today about. Biden plans but if you notice it in his speech, he didn't say what he would do. He talked a lot about how bad the Biden and the Democrat tar and that's one of the problems people have suggested that we're seeing with trump's poll numbers is that at this point he is. Talking, about the previous four years and a lot of people didn't like what happened in the previous four years outside of the tax cut. and. He's not talking about what happens in the next four years or even in the next year and that makes it hard to make a case for your election. Yeah, it's a it's a phenomenal time and a lot of people pointing out now that if we don't get something before the election, it's going to be January. Before we're able to do more stimulus Michael thank you really appreciate your input and listening to that for us with Michael McKee. International airports, and policy. Correspondent.
Samsungs Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G: All the details on the $2,000 foldable
"Just large galaxy. No twenty three weeks ago. Now it's time for the Godsey full to five Jeez chance to shine. That is a mouthful brought her Chang, and this is your daily charge. Joining me is he not reporter and Samson expert tooken extra me Machar, thanks for having me. So the gutsy full to five G. and that is a really really long name. I'm just GONNA. Keep that point. It got a minor tease at Samsung's event a few back but now it gets the spotlight to itself. So just before we get into all the specs in all the other details, let's let's get the important that other way how much does this thing cost? So in the US is going to cost two thousand dollars. So basically, it's twenty dollars more than last year's model. So it's a lot of money. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That does a huge amount of money. All right. Well, this is. This is a foldable and I get the full supposed to be expensive and it is Simpson's third foldable annexed assessor to last year's fold, which famously had allowed durability issues. So what's different about? Full to in what did Samsung do to make sure this phone holds up What we saw with the flip that they had this spring was that they really had addressed a lot of the issues that the first fold had. So they dealt with the problems with the hinge kind of the crease all of the things that people were complaining about they fix those We're GONNA see a lot of those improvements in the new Z. Fold to as well as. A few like updates from the flip earlier this year. So they've redesigned the hinge and it's the same as what we saw in the flip. So you can have it. You can rest the phone kind of you know at a eighty degree angle or whatever you know set it on your table. They also have these brushes inside the hinge. So in this, they had those earlier, but this is kind of the latest greatest version of those basically to kind of mixture, dust doesn't get in the device or you know whatever is in your purse when you wrote this in there. So they, they've done those sorts of things to address a lot of those issues that we saw last year got in in case God forbid something does happen phone are there any special warranty programs or anything they're doing to kind of make sure that folks peace of mind that spending two thousand dollars on something we're kind of seeing the same sort of offers that they had before were. They'll replace the off the. Screen like a one time replacement for around one fifty. So it's less than if you had to go replace the screen on your own. So that's the sort of thing to kind of try to make it. More. Realistic. Well, if the screen breaks I'm not going to have to pay two thousand dollars to get a new phone I can pay one fifty that replaced the screen and it'll be like new again. No let's about how this differs from the previous model obviously. There's a five gene, the name. So clearly will have five, the Axis. But how much five G. is we've talked about in previous episodes you there's different flavors of it. Right so how much access does this phone actually get on the five networks? On this phone basically is all of the five G. networks like this is a really or at least the major ones that we're using right now this is a very big advance over the folds in terms of a lot of things there's five G.. One of the biggest complaints about the first fold was the tiny screen on the front of the device. It wasn't really useful enough to actually use. The fold as a phone people were tending to just automatically have to open it and use kind of that bigger tablet size screen. So what they've got this time is a screen on the front that stretches across the entire front of the device and it just makes it look last year. It's more useful. So I think people will up using this more when it's closed, not just always having to open it. Yet with the five G., we have a five G. model at all last year for the fold in the US. So this time you know five jeep bigger screen. A lot of things that just make this more attractive and the other a features or bells and whistles that. Help this phone stand apart from his predecessor. Another big thing it's kind of that flex. Mod is what they call it. So that's what we saw I with the flip where you could set the device on the table and the screen will stay open in you know whatever degree you put it in. We're seeing that with this one as well. So they're saying, yeah, you can set it up for like shooting You know a video or whatever or you know or if you're watching something or whatever you can just basically has a built in that's the screen and the device itself So you know that's a big thing that I think people really like that was kind of a cool thing that came with the flip. So. That's one of the bigger changes that they kind of also made some good camera changes with this Basically, they addressed the biggest complaints that everyone had with last year's device and fix those in this one aside from the fact that it's still a two thousand dollar phone. You asked him we were on we talked about the the narrow sliver of customers who are willing to buy a thousand dollar note twenty now this is. A two thousand dollar phone I know it's foldable but. Questions about how useful that is who is Samsung actually targeting with this particular phone Samsung. Is actually targeting note owners with this phone. They found that the people who would traditionally gravitate towards the note lineup. Kind of those early adopters who want the latest greatest tech are willing to spend a lot of money to get a flashy device to get a bigger device and. They're finding that people who were buying the fold are a lot of people who have bought the note in the past or still do the notes It's the way they distinguish the flip and the full term. Each other is they see the flip is this sort of like. Cute. Phone that becomes smaller and put. You can put it in your pocket and it's more of kind of. Everyday lifestyle device and they see the folds as really kind of letting you transition from a phone to a tablet like get more done doing more with multitasking and access different APPS like Microsoft Office. You know things that you would do on a tablet but now you also have an inconvenience of the fact that is also your phone right and then you mentioned MC sophism I'm just curious in your. Demos with this device, how like whether they showed off how you use after how took advantage of this bigger screen? Well, they've kind of had this thing since the first generation of fold where it's called continuity where you could start an APP on the front and then open, it will open at work in the bigger screen and pick up where it left off the issue was there were not ten of APPs that took advantage of it I hope that we start to see more apps soon that work with it. kind of sense than. Samsung has been working more closely with Google and Microsoft and Youtube an office and things like that, and then there's that flex MoD. Also where APPs could you could maybe have you can take like a screen shot of something in an APP over here and then drag it to another APP on another part of your screen more with multitasking. So letting you have multiple APPs open at once is a big thing with the fold You know kind of more of that tablets sort of experience instead of just a phone experience. Give everything that's going on. We're still in the middle of pandemic a still dealing with the recession with millions unemployed. What do you think about Samsung unveiling a phone at this price point? It's kind of the same situation that we saw the note where people who? Would want to buy. This are probably people who were not hurt financially by what's going on right now because they're not traveling, they're not going out to dinners they're not going out to bars. Some people are probably saving money right now and they may see, hey, this is a lot flashier device from what was last year. It. Sampson's had a year to work out the kinks. Maybe this is worth investing in. The two thousand dollars is not unrealistic based on what is actually going into the device is just kind of a question of individual people have to decide if they're willing to pay two thousand dollars, but we have to remember this technology is still really early like foldable screens. This is basically just the second year first full year of seem devices with these. So it's not like these have. been around forever like like regular led displays Five G. is brand new. That is also expensive it adds cost to a device. So you know it's just kind of what you're willing to do but then you know as we've talked before, there's kind of factor of with foldable. You get these because you want people to see them. It's kind of how like iphones used to be like. The newest generations had to have some sort of little tweaks to make it. Make people know that you have the newest device, not that s off your device or whatever that you didn't buy like a two year old phone or year old bound. So it's the same sort of thing with this with you know when people are out using a foldable people, stop them ask what is that? Can I see what is and right now you really don't want anybody close enough to you to touch your phone or see it or or even be out that much to have people see it. So you know it's kind of the whole if you're in it just for the flash flashing aspect is probably not worth it but if you're in it because you want a device that transitions from phone to tablet. It would be attractive for people and thinks, lastly, I heard this phone grants some unusual perks what do you actually get with this phone? So it seems has this sort of VIP program for the folds and you get a membership with it. It's kind of unclear how this actually work works. They said there'll be some benefits like six months free of of this like premium fitness workout system like fifty dollars off like a hare service, six months of free of linked premium. Free Golf membership you know a Michelin Star meal that you can get delivered to your home It's it's a bunch of things where it's like. Okay like you know, I don't know how much people take these and the other thing is they said that these are going to be coming to people who bought the previous fold people who bought the flip. So it's not like you have to buy the new fold to take advantage of this if you really want access to whatever these things are under hoping to add more benefits We'll have to see same is actually done this for a long time with its phones. It'll have like when you buy the new galaxy whatever you get. Six months free of dropbox and you get premium bird blah blah. Blah. So it's not that unusual for them to have kind of bundled promotional partnership deals with their device but these are kind of bigger and more like real world things. You just have you know premium flip board on your phone. Clearly geared towards towards a different customer segment. Than just premium clipboard. People. Who have two thousand dollars to spend not exactly well, thanks for your time Shara. If you have any questions about the full to his up on twitter at the daily charge, you create coverage on the phone announcing dot com the charge. Roger. Chan next listening.

How Google Search Sold Out
"Adrian along with her reporting partner. Leon yeah wanted to measure exactly how often Google search results relieving back to its own answers or own products. It was already clear that Google was pointing users back to its own products more and more frequently over the last decade but the extent to which this was happening was unknown. So they started with the data. We grabbed the searches from Google trends from this several month period from October, twenty, nineteen to January twenty twenty, and it ended up being about fifteen thousand search queries, and we ran those queries ourselves captured the page, and then we analyze the page to see what stuff was. Google was not go where things pointing. So you did fifteen thousand searches, did you do them both on a desktop and mobile phone? We did actually we ended up analyzing just the mobile searches for the study because Google actually sees more searches on mobile. I mean the results are incredible I think that I. In one particular case, you did a search and if you're looking at it on iphone, nothing was pointing outside of Google was that right? We broke it down to ways we looked at the entire first page of search results, and when we looked at that, we found the average was forty one percent was google ecosystem stuff. We also looked at the first screen on an iphone ten, and when we look at just that I screen, we did find searches where it was all google stuff. On. Average. Nearly half of the first page of results from Google search directed the user to Google products forty one percent of the page on an iphone ten, sixty, three percent of the first page was Google's own content. This is a one hundred eighty degree turn from the search engines early design back in two thousand four Larry Page gloated that Google was better than its competitors AOL MSN because quote, their search engine doesn't necessarily provide the best results it provides the portals results years later, Google is doing the same thing that page criticized AOL for. There are basically two ways that will answer your queries directly on the page when you type a question. So, if you want to know when is Valentine's Day, it'll pop up just the date in a box and you don't need the source for that. That date comes from Google's knowledge graph, which is a database of what they call entities, basically people, places, things, ideas, and knowledge graph is from sources that Google really vets, and there is some degree of human saying okay. CAN WE TRUST CIA world factbook? Okay. We'll take all of their data. And put it into knowledge graph. The other way that you can get direct answers on the page is through a system called featured snippets, and this is where Google will look basically at the top ranking search result and grab some text out of the page and display it on the search results page. So you might get something from like wicky how it could be you know Ken Ken. My dog eat Sushi is an example of us. But you've used before I mean there's some of them are like, what are the symptoms of Covid but then some of them are subjective you pointed in one of your pieces to one where it said, how do I get a date right? Exactly I will save for the covid stuff and in general for health queries those usually go through the knowledge panel they try to be really careful about certain categories they call it your money or your life finance and health because. There's a lot of opportunity for misinformation and fraud that being said I have come across a lot of misinformation about MSG. For example, popping up in featured snippets, there's have been a lot of examples of misinformation or content ending up those featured snippets, which doesn't look great for Google, because when you look at it on the search results page it, it's got a box around it. It's at the top. It looks very authoritative and it looks like Google is endorsing this answer.
Sorry Crypto Maximalists, But QE Is NOT The Devil - Alex Blum from Two Prime
"So topic number one. qe Is not the devil, right so Wednesday teasing the central banks fancy word for create new currency and why call Keynesian model. So. We'll just looking at the. The nausea has crypto was born as a reaction to the two thousand eight financial crisis. We can talk about the you can talk about the positive implications for crypto markets that was kind of interesting. I see I would think that the Qe is will be seen as. Positive full crypto is just that what we expect to happen terms of light hyperinflation and then bitcoin going to the moon that's not been happening. Yeah. And with twelve years into bunkers levels of Qe. So can you speak on that? Yes. So I think to start I think a lot of people in the space very little trust for. Governments. Fans `institutions, which basically set monetary policy and end up printing. new money. It's not out of the world. A lot of the growth of Western economies has come from quantity quantitive easing, fractional, banking, fractional reserve banking, and so what this last to do is Basically. Create new acids new opportunities and and put money into things without having everything directly backed by a piece of gold or some other kind of hard asset Actually what's made it possible for our economy to grow post gold and post slavery as a different model I think we're things run into issues when you create this new money and it goes to a junk so. The Super Leverage Politics that have no real value generating a real value and you get this collapse in believer faith in that in the underlying and as well as claps and faith in the money that represents it, and so truly question of allocation. If you do to easing and give the money to chucky cheese dollars, you're GONNA have a problem if the money goes to space exploration and developing new medical research and helping the poor in a way that is reasonable and actually creates value than you have. Okay. You know banks. Currently, they do publication where their lending out money to people to buy real estate. For example, the recently generating that money themselves and then were getting the money returned to them through. The return of principal plus interest, and so you can basically create and get it back plus some if it's done correctly. So. In terms of its relation to crypto space I mean. In the last twelve years obviously bitcoin his done quite well in the last year or two a little bit more flats. It's tough to I. Think Today we look at like bitcoin why isn't going up more but it's pretty astonishing that it exists at all and that it was able to take flight, and so you know you can kind of see this risk premium or maybe a extra. Now the in the price of all this kind of uncertainty especially the early days of Bitcoin. By quantitative easing or new money helps to move into the space. That I think in terms of the. Performance recently and like its relationship to new money printing in the US, for example. I. Think it's. Very early yet to say, that money hasn't come into the space or you we might have seen a giant collapse so they're not been quantitative easing. It's tough to know what to compare it to necessarily but It's not surprising that there's a bit of lag or not an exact timing of like new dollars per did in twenty cents immediately goes Debbie Bitcoin obviously there could be some time lag. Structure Market. Dynamics. That caused the price do not move exactly the same moment and probably a good thing that it's not completely dependent upon the money supply for the price of Bitcoin number just be another leveraged financial product just like any other make bitcoin anything special unique. Okay. Isn't that the argument though like This there's a delay. In between the creation of new currency and having an impact on prices. And The. Question is I think they'll answerable question about. Eighty degrees of that economic effect. Happens. And be will. No. One can tell how long it takes. To to actually have a real effect on relation. In the the question. Show in the. Bitcoin. World. We all love. The fish supply, right Twenty one, million goings. Will ever exist right all twenty, one, million of mind. But we know that that is the absolute guarantee monetary policy. That's most people are into crypto four and it can be changed. You know technically you can change the rules of the network, but it require mass consensus, which is highly unlikely to ever get past right because the bitcoin would lose its value since that's One of the tenants everyone's into it for so just purely by simplifying it. If. There's a pile of twenty, million bitcoin. The. Ratio a prices ratio between one asset. Another right. So if you trade against US dollars, you have a ratio with dolls and wanted to on the other. And if you took old dollars in existence will bitcoin existence and credit ratio than you've got. A bitcoin price say, right. Now, if you increase the supply on one side of the equation, he changed the price.
