A Look At Apple's Hi, Speed Event

"Few huge surprises at apple's high speed event though. There were some unexpected bits. Did. Anybody. See The verizon thing coming? Did we have any idea what? MAG SAFE WAS GONNA turn out to be. There we'll get to those. Most of today's presentation is drawn from a couple of viewings of the Apple Park presentation. We'll also pull from the usual suspects doing their usual bang-up jobs. Tuesday's high-speed event presentation started with Apple CEO Tim Cook welcoming viewers back to Apple Park than throwing the presentation almost immediately to others to give the INS and outs of home pod. Many. Bob Board richer's apple VP worldwide product marketing listed the company's desires for home pod. Wanting. The device to have amazing sound to act as an intelligent assistant to serve as a smart home hub all while protecting the privacy and security of the user. This, they say they do in a smaller spherical unit that costs less than one third of the original home pods original asking price. On the amazing sound side company bragged on the devices ro properties as well as how well it plays with others. Others being other apple devices. Users can apparently sink home pod many's either a stereo pairs or to play the same audio throughout the home. The. Inclusion of apples you one processor makes handoff easier to handle according to the company. For what it'll play. Well, there's the usual stuff apple music, apple podcasts, iheartradio radio DOT COM tuned in with Pandora and Amazon music on the way in the coming months. As for the smart part Home Pod, many will handle or interact with messages. Calendar phone calls maps music because. The. Weather reminders and find my feature. There was also an interesting demo where users ask for personal updates and got them. personalized. So he you know multiple voice recognition is key. Now. One new feature mentioned and de Mode was intercom. This is basically what it sounds like. You tell home pod to deliver a message to everybody and the various apple devices in the house including other home pods, iphones, apple watches air pods, and even carplay units play or display the message. I have heard entercom will work with the original home pods as well though not seeing that confirmed. Addressing. It's smart home hub nece home pod many integrates with apple's home APP that lets control home connected accessories said scenes and stuff like that. Covering User Privacy Apple, says no word spoken to Home Pod, leave your home until you touch home pod many or say he. S I are. So, yes, it is always listening but what it here's goes nowhere until you give it the command. Request. A home pot or not associated with apple ID. You choose whether recordings are saved by apple personal requests only work when the associated iphone is home with you. And communications with smart home accessories used strong encryption according to the company. Now I, said earlier that the unit is spiritual. If you've seen a home pod, there is no mistaking what this thing is. Same sort of light up display on the top same mesh wrapping it's roundedness and the same white and space grey options as the original home pod. Coming soon to flat surface near you. Orders for home pod many began on the sixth of November unit, start, shipping the week of the sixteenth of November. Not Price, to beat an echo but not a device that will break the bank. Home Pod many will sell. For, Ninety, nine bucks. Okay. I pretend to hear you say but I'm worried about breaking my home pause many. Not sure why but better to be safe in your case. To that end apple care plus we'll be available for home pod. Many. A piece from macrumors says, that will run buyers fifteen bucks. When Tim Cook was back on camera, he took a moment to Brag on iphones past noting the iphone eleven has been the number one smartphone in the world since its launch and that I phone has led the industry in customer satisfaction every year since it's Get ready to hate all of them as the iphone twelve line makes the scene bringing with it five G. Connectivity. Which one? All of them. Had Been Rumored Apple announced four iphone phone twelve models and has had also been rumored. Each can support five G.. Cook says, five G. Brings A new level of performance for downloads UPLOADS, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity, and more. The CEO says five Jia superfast, which he actually pitched as a security feature speeds are so good. He says you'll be less tempted to sign on the public WIFI limiting exposure to the dangers that lurk there. Every decade brings new technology that provides a step change in what we can do with iphone said Cook. Today. A new era begins for iphone. Today we're bringing by G. to phone. Then began the verizon commercial. Hans Fest Berg Chairman and CEO. Verizon took to the stage talk about big reds five G. offering. Verizon's by ultra wideband with large quantities of millimeter wave access will be live and sixty cities across the US by the end of this year. In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added. As for the higher end phones, the pizzas, two years of Apple Care Plus will cost one, nine, thousand, nine or nine dollars ninety nine cents per month. Theft. And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle. And working out. Would owners can order iphone twelve and iphone twelve pro this Friday the sixteenth. October. They'll be delivered the following Friday the twenty third. If you're targeting either end of the range. iphone twelve, many an iphone twelve pro Max will go up for order on the sixth of November. Delivery should hit the following Friday the thirteenth of November. Barring incident which I have to say because. Friday

"entercom" Discussed on NewsRadio 1080 KRLD

"Opinions or advice of KRLD or Entercom media corporation welcome to the K. B. C. financial our I am your host Evan Christensen with my co host Karen Crist say hello Karen hello and thanks for joining us again this week to a regular listeners and if you are new welcome to the K. PC financial our I like the topic we have this year this week this year this week well here we go common retirement regrets in ways to overcome them in what we want to do is we want to learn from those who've already walked down the retirement pass absolutely I think smart people learn from other people's mistakes right right you can learn just as much from what not to do it but he telling you what to do see it's really smart to learn from your own mistakes but it's really really smart to learn from other people's mistakes so you don't make them right so we're going to do that for we get going here dear though why don't you just tell the brand new listeners who we are okay if you listen to us for awhile you've heard this before but if you're new I'm going to highlight the words that are important we are an independent financial services firm and the word independent is important because that means we are not affiliated or work for a large firm or large wire house in other words we don't have a boss that's telling us certain products or other things to use when developing a retirement plan we were what you call captive for years and we just decided that is not what we wanted to do because we truly believe that you as the client you're the boss the real boss you are the real boss with you know no no meetings telling people this is what we want to see and so that and for those guys that are married we know you're the real boss so independent is important and we help individuals create retirement strategies so we use financial retirement planning to do that but our focus is to give you confidence coming up to retirement and all the way through retirement our tagline is guiding you through retirement and we really mean it we do that using a variety of investment and insurance products again we we we like both of those worlds we're not just an investment or not just in insurance those are both we just tools means to an end because the focus is on the retirement plan and those are all custom suited because each person's retirement plan will be as unique as their thumb print everybody has different goals different objectives they're starting from different places so these are all customized you know we did a show a couple months ago about the different worlds of investments you know and you sometimes you'll I like to listen to the other shows on the radio to and you can kind of tell you know somewhere just about real estate some of them are obviously pushing annuities and some of them are about learning how to trade stocks online and so you know we don't say anything bad about any of the different worlds of investments right right here at the insurance world you know you have the banking world young in you have the the wallstreet world right and so we we think that there's a place for every one of those worlds yes right so that's the point why not use a mall instead of just focus on one when it cut it why not have more options when it comes to planning something as significant as your retirement because as you like to say in the old saying you don't want to have all your eggs in one basket that certainly not and what is the real definition what would you like to say is the real definition of diversification diversification when you hear it most often it's used about diversifying just with in the stock market world so you've heard equities and versus bonds and getting the right mix and diversification but there is no risk management international the mass the small cap large cap right but they're just talking about one world most of the time they're talking about just the stock market world and to me that is not true diversification yes you want to have diversification in that world but true diversification is across your entire asset mix so you want to be we look at overall diversification so what is your overall risk when you take into account stock market real estate insurance products bank products yet to me is a true diversification you call it having lots of spokes in your wheel yeah we haven't talked about that do you think of you think of about your investments and your retirement you know nest egg so to speak as is spokes on a wheel right right you've got your social security you might have a rental house right you might have a pension you might have a lifetime payment annuity you might have dividends right those are spoke to might own a business right those are spokes on your wheel you know the difference between Warren Buffett and most people he's got more spokes on this wheel sure right yeah we'll pay it so anyway Hey listen and all of that can be found in what we call the retirement blueprint we think that it's all about planning you know we want to make you know your investments bigger you know I'm license in securities and and Karen his pass the CPA exam and we like she likes to do some tax planning right and so but planning retirement planning is our sweet spot yes and so we want to do that first and we call that the retirement blueprint right correct so how can they get a retirement blueprint and what the heck is it well you call is four six nine four four four thirty nine hundred or go out to our website K. P. C. just think keep the payments coming K. PC.

U.S. weekly jobless claims remain elevated as millions more seek benefits

"Three point eight million people filed claims for jobless benefits last week well that's down from the previous week this brings us to a new disturbing total thirty million people have applied for unemployment in this country in the six weeks since the corona virus began and Pierre Scott Horsley joins us now to talk about these numbers he's got good morning Rachel all this doesn't get any easier does that with each passing week what are these what are these numbers say ritual that total of thirty million jobless claims over the last six weeks since the pandemic started taking a wrecking ball the job market that represents nearly one out of five people who had a job back in February so the pandemic has really put a very large crater in the job market and while initial claims last week were lower than the week before they weren't a lot lower we continue to see very high volumes of people filing for unemployment week after week and that's a just the initial shock from the stay at home orders issued more than a month ago now is continuing to ripple out and due to broader damage in the economy it's not just restaurants and retail shops but other businesses that supply those firms that have now been affected and then they're sort of unrelated things you'll Boeing just announced they're gonna cut ten percent of the company's work force I mean the steep decline in air travel from the pandemic has just exacerbated Boeing's earlier problems with its troubled seven thirty seven Max jet so we're also going to get the overall unemployment rate soon parade that's not gonna look good isn't no we'll get that official number next week and it's probably going to be higher than anything we've seen since the Great Depression of the nineteen thirties certainly well above the ten percent mark we saw during the worst of the financial crisis and as bad as that official unemployment number is it will almost surely understates the depth of the job losses for one thing it's based on a survey that was taken a couple weeks ago and we've now seen millions more people filing for unemployment since then what's more people who are still in lockdown you know won't be searching for new jobs and if you're not actively looking for work you don't get counted in the headline unemployment number so we might look at other measures you know just this week and P. R. released a new survey along with our partners at PBS newshour and Marist college which found fifty percent of Americans had either lost jobs or lost working hours as a result of the corona virus pandemics of the pain has really been widespread and Entercom after such low unemployment rate I mean it's just such an abrupt turnaround yeah that's right we've got for having the lowest jobless rate in half a century to the highest since the Great Depression in the span of two months so there really is some economic whiplash here federal reserve chairman Jerome Powell talked about this yesterday and he noted once again that the long running job boom had been really good for workers who are often on the sidelines of the economy minorities people with less education these marginalized workers had finally begun to see some gains it is heartbreaking frankly to see that all threatened now all the more need for our urgent response and also that a Congress which has been urgent and large and to do what we can to avoid longer run damage to the economy Congress has authorized unemployment benefits that are both more generous and more widely available during this pandemic period but those expanded federal benefits only run through the end of July and it's not all clear we're going to be out of the woods by them right and there were so many problems with people of the phone lines being one of them they just couldn't get through it to start the process to get the benefits absolutely you know state unemployment offices have just been overwhelmed trying to distribute the regular state benefits and they're only beginning to distribute these expanded federal benefits offices have been adding staff but they're saddled with antiquated computer systems that the safety net is really stretched in here Andy Stettler who's an expert on unemployment insurance at the century foundation says anyone who spent time talking with displaced workers knows that it's exasperating and confusing between filing and actually getting your unemployment

How does the new coronavirus compare with the flu?

"And so what exactly makes this virus so much more it seems so much more dangerous because we don't really do this often like shut down countries and cities of why exactly should we take this so much more seriously it's not necessarily more dangerous than our normal seasonal influence that we have thousands of people die every season to end to the flu what makes this one different is the fact that no one has any immunity to this particular virus so with the flu their flu shots there is overlap between viruses that have circulated before in viruses that are circulating now and so our population has a level of resistance to it because of those measures that have been put in place in because of the virus having been around this kind of virus is totally new and so no one has been exposed to it before and they were not way most people in the world are susceptible to it which means they can get the virus and be inspected that doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to have symptoms that they're going to have severe disease but they're able to get infected and so that's one of the concerns that we have right now for this particular virus is that it's spreading through a susceptible population and so and so we have a vaccine which optimistically eighteen to twenty four months out from now and and and how we have the population I know people have been exposed to and become immune to it the rail that natural immunity that you develop when you get back we're going to see this part of the a little bit more serious and eating a little bit more seriously than

What you need to know about coronavirus (COVID-19)

"I don't really know too much about the corona virus I feel like there's a lot of information out there and it could be a little bit overbearing sometimes if you listen to different news sources I mean I've heard some people say it's airborne I've heard other people say it's not like what what exactly is the status of you know this virus yes Sir the colonel virus is one of the family of viruses the only thing corona virus it's sort of like the terms dog we have lots of different types of dogs but they're all dogs and so this coronavirus its name is sars virus Q. and it causes the disease COPD at nineteen and so it's one type of coronavirus desirous lives in our upper respiratory tracts on our news is in our throats and in the top part of our lungs and the way it spread is through respiratory droplets so respiratory droplets are kinda weird because in some ways they are born in in some way is that they're not just depends on their size if you think about when someone sneezes and you have all of those droplets that come out some of them are very small and are going to take a long time to essentially sink down to the ground and onto a surface where the other ones that are larger gonna drop right away and so you have this next particles and droplets that are in the air and better falling fairly quickly down to the surface I was also going to ask on Sunday I know the news was no groups more than fifty and then you know we went to Monday and I was like No group larger Tang yeah so what what would be your advice groups go their CDC was recommending it no groups larger than fifty and then the White House came out with the new groups larger than ten what's really important is to think about who you're around and how they are in you are behaving and if you're in a group and someone is coughing and not covering their costs that could be a dangerous situation and not for that so special dispensing of six feet becomes really important the problem with this virus is that we don't really know who has it and who doesn't and part of that testing that we don't have enough test to test everybody especially the people who have mild symptoms we also have people who don't have any symptoms at all and so these people don't feel sick but they need to be able to spread the virus it's something that we don't really know at this point so we're trying to figure those things out and so when you have a group of people even if everyone seems healthy there may be people who are infected and that's why there any limitations on the number of people gathering in one place I said when this whole thing started Americans will start to take it more seriously when a celebrity gets infected and so then we had Tom Hanks and his wife and then we had it your cell but and these were two people like even edges our made a video and he looked just fine no symptoms is that what you're talking about the people that have it and like they're not coffee they're not sick right that's exactly what I'm talking about where they feel fine maybe they have a little bit of a headache but otherwise no no symptoms and seemed perfectly healthy but are in fact had the virus some of the other information that is out there is that it's dangerous to older people do we have the case is still of younger people dying from this when we think about who's at risk for the more serious diseases and possibly that elderly people people over fifty are definitely in that risk group and that information comes from what we observed in China and watching their outbreak unbearably did show that people that some people under fifty it also died but the death rate for those people is very low compared to people over fifty something else that is a risk factor for this disease is what we call co morbidities basically health conditions that affect your ability to fight off viruses so this can be anything from having uncontrolled diabetes to having a chronic inflammatory condition like rheumatoid arthritis order a long condition and these are the ones that are particularly concerning for us and something like COPD or asthma and those are the groups that were really worried about and so the people who are at highest risk of death well into those gates said those other health conditions and over fifty but yes there is a chance that people under fifty could contract the disease have a very severe form of the disease and potentially could die but that seems to be very rare and if I if I scroll on Twitter and that's a look at things that are trending a lot of sources out there saying that we are ten days behind Italy from your viewpoint do you view that as correct in terms of how fast their infection is spreading how fast our infection is spread hello and we were able to watch Italy and see how their measures affected the spread and so by taking a lot of these preliminary measures lake here in Vegas where we don't really have very many cases even here in the whole state of Nevada we don't have very many cases but we are we've already Clark County school district has closed the school a lot of places have closed as you mentioned the strip is pretty much shut down which I can't remember a time that's ever happened before we're making these precautionary measures now we're hoping that we'll be able to you basically stopped that that that increase that we see as were falling behind Italy so yes I think we are going to see an increase in cases and because of how viruses work the more people who are infected the more people who are able to become infected and I'll talk about that a little bit more in just a second and that is that we do think that we are moving toward something similar to Italy but hopefully will not be as bad as what has happened in Italy so let me go back to that idea one person at spreading the virus to other people who spread it to the other people so when we think about how the virus spreads not with one person who is infected and that one person has different contacts with different people and so because of those contacts and then the people that they need some of them will become infected we have a term for this in epidemiology it's called are not essentially is on average how many people will one inspected percent going to in fact put this in a little bit of perspective I'm gonna give you two examples so the first is for our seasonal flu which is still circulating at this point as well hopefully you generally one person will in fact an average of one point three people so somewhere between one into closer to one and so that one person in fact wanted to other people and then let's say it's two people those two people are going to impact wanted to other people and it keeps growing like that exponentially that's our seasonal flu on the other end of the spectrum we have something like noodles where one infected person can in fact up to an average of twelve to eighteen people and we have really big differences in these different really of viruses to spread in a susceptible population when we're thinking about this virus our sars coronavirus Q. what were seen based on information coming out of China coming out of South Korea coming out of Italy is that are are not this is about two point eight white she was so somewhere between two and three people as more people get infected those people will in fact two to three more people each and then those were affected three more people eat so it feels like the virus is spreading really fast in getting out of control but it's not that it's spreading any faster it's just there are more people spreading it where would we be in the green people are taking all these extraordinary measures to make sure we don't get to the point to where it really got to you know were to be had to shut down the whole country so right is it like having less cases a hobby not a severe cases what would it take for us to get there yeah when we think about how these diseases work we think about it in the large sense of the country level so what we look at is the number of new cases reported per day and so as that number continues to rise we consider that and continuing the spread and when those number start to fall and we see that consistently over a period of time in most cases that tends to be one to two weeks at least have to see a consistent fall it depends on the virus and so we don't know exactly what that's going to look like for this virus so when we start seeing fewer and fewer new cases reported each day that's where we're gonna start to be in the green ones were in the green there still is a level of caution right because you could go back up to being in the red right if we're not careful yeah absolutely so once we get down to the green and were getting fewer and fewer cases that doesn't mean that the virus is gone it just means that fewer people are getting infected and so we still need to be cautious we still need to think about all those things that we've heard lately washing your hands regularly not touching your face being sure that if you are sick or coughing that you are staying away from other people who might be susceptible and those precautions that we're doing now we'll continue on after we start to get back into the green because you're right we don't want to spread that back into the red how effective is the face mask the the mouth mask is that is that of a very effective thing to do you know we see people at airports I I was driving to get gas yesterday and I saw a guy with the with the face mask on just walking around is is that effective it is active if you are sick it is very good at keeping the virus essentially you and not spreading it to your community there if you think about the way those things not work and we're talking about the thin papery line and they just kind of cover your nose and mouth and have no air gaps on the sides and things like that when you think about that and you have when you grease with those respiratory droplets if you call us that's all going to get caught on that man and not spread to the other people around you now if you're not sick that's not going to be super helpful and the reason for that is that when you are not thank you you have to basically come in contact with those respiratory droplets and so in most cases since you're probably not going to stand near by someone who's coughing and let them console over you you're going to be getting it from a service into when you get it from a circus someone has crossed our path into their hand and then touch that purpose but in some way that surface has the address between droplets on it went the virus something you touch that surface let's say the door handle and then you rub your eyes or yarn and cover your young with your hand and somehow touch your face and those me coastal sites that make me hopeful sites I mean you're in I know it's in your mouth we get the virus in and

"Around the office getting some water here some coffee there maybe I'm listening to a conversation or two along the way having a conversation avoiding converse low voiding a conversation walking really fast to get away from it so we're really gonna make this a typical day I at that option yeah five o'clock do you run the fastest from here at Entercom right got to have that in prime time with but I'm walking you walk past the recall the bistro for some reason the kitchen you walk past the bistro to get in here and a woman we know is preparing a **** or lunch or something she's preparing food and all right it's a bed of lettuce I can see from a distance that it's a bed of lettuce lettuce on a plate with some I don't know beans baby and like red something red is dumped all over it okay and that's what sort of catches my eye like this is I'm paying attention now I think I saw right before the something red being dumped all over it I think I want to pass this all right as it was unfolding there probably were like one or two other vegetables like chopped onions or peppers or something on there I don't know but I'm not thinking anything of it until I noticed that something like from a distance looked like jelly or something is dumped on this bed of iceberg lettuce I have a gas because I I saw a clue on the way by before this again the dumping of the red stuff I saw a little bag of tortilla chips I think well it's salsa right as I get closer I realized it's also staff taco salad yeah right and she's like yeah then she's got the chips and she's opening the bag of chips is getting ready to dump the chips like maybe she's gonna break them up sure the bag that's what I would do that's what I would do too yeah and then just pour them out all over the I think a lot of single people would do that yeah yeah for my confirmation because I really you know that's definitely what it is are we fine with it like taco salad of course with no meat or anything like that's a that's a a dish well I want meat lettuce salsa tortilla chips the lettuce is like the base that's a that's a dead what's going on it's kind of sad right it's it's a little it's a little seven well it's chips and salsa with a fork its chips and salsa with lettuce the little I mean it's meatless nachos with a fork or meatless nachos with a fork that might be right I think that's what it is I would eat chips and salsa just did salsa in a bowl and dipping the chips and salsa fine I'm just adding letters to the the conversation and so you made it into a salad and also to launch as always he was sacked as opposed to a **** actually now it's settled and so it is good for you if you were right allegedly it but if you're dousing it in salsa and taco chips you know yeah no maybe not whereas if you're just sitting there with I mean you know optics mean a lot recently with a giant bag of tortilla chips and a jar of salsa and just dipping the chips and the salsa and eating them you look like you're going to town on a bag of chips crumble up some chips dumb since also running out of what is really and you're eating healthy exactly that's the point I think really what fork I think is the key to the whole thing for heating with the force more civilized therefore I'm being responsible I don't know you throw some shredded cheddar cheese on that that's what you do that's that definitely instances our green all of of showers good for your quotient of this dish no no well now it looks like food now it looks like a meal a little bit more like a meal even though there's no beef on it I don't know just like what what what it didn't really make sense to me at first I have no one to talk about it right if I did what I had for lunch today I think a lot of people you you guys would you guys would love to have her let's go ahead I will I would love to tell you what I had for lunch I had banana an apple and an orange I am not spread some peanut butter on the banana but that was it that was launched today no you're not you're like god what look what are the puppets and Mister Rogers neighborhood you said I just had a plate of fruit with some with some but I want a little pride some peanut butter you know you'll protein going there but that was it I'm trying to not eat bread just because you know what V. at home but I'm a wreck it's likely I'm yes it's legal like it's well lit for banking what's that I mean nope is it ever too late it's it's gone pretty well so far I don't really feel in the end you know I'm just like everything I'm doing a kind of like half way you know going to some somebody listens only sounds like you want to do the keto diet but you're not right now but I'm not committing all the way through it you know so like tonight we have a spaghetti yeah I live in do you probably not supposed to do no probably you're definitely are supposed to do if you're doing that dot is the kind of the same as bread pretty much yeah but you know there's sauce laughed and that's for dinner tonight and like that's it or whatever you only just a bowl of sauce could I pour some sauce over some lettuce or put it on a banana I mean I kind of was that's kind of what she did yeah I was running late was salsa but I don't I don't don't think that would be that that that fulfilling so you know I'm gonna have some spaghetti tonight probably aren't any good but it but yeah so a banana with an apple or an orange yes well it sounds like a joke is beginning right they what they open at an apple an orange while you all are and ask if they have any pizza patr N. bulldog eats them that's the end wow so how do you feel you feel good I feel good again do you think like does the adrenaline of the show get you throw but are you financial seven oh yeah really been doing this for a while now you have that whatever that prepared welding writing but regime or whatever that is inviting and right if I don't if I yeah I've been getting like a man the prepared meals sent to the house and doing that and that is also like a non carb thing mostly there's a couple of pasta dishes but I try to avoid them so that's working out pretty well and if I don't have one of those you die will have that banana apple orange thing in the morning after I get back from the gym but if I today I didn't get up early enough to go to the gym and so I put that off and had that for lunch okay so no prepared meal today I don't know if I should feel good or bad that's all that's going to yeah I wouldn't energies not been a been an issue but you will get hungry no I'll be fine okay they'll be files a lot that's a lot of that's a lot of food what is the matter with a bunch of peanut butter on it and an apple an orange is a lot of food it takes me a long time to eat that the only food you've had I had a bowl of cereal like seven thirty that's what kind of offense was what was that cookie crisp I think you go with some kind of some kind of special Katie with hello almond special K. probably or something right probably a serial that it and like that's not a good choice either but like whatever I did it that looks like it's supposed to be better for you than it probably is yes right like it's it it's it looks responsible might could boast some sort of like you know Hey but it all it's probably it's got all the vitamin mineral you'll ever read the label it's

Maryland makes for a smart investment. Make your move at Open Dot Maryland. Dot Gov did Amazon just kick electric vehicle production into a higher gear from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm molly would in the electric car. Revolution seems to finally be happening and it's not just us going to be in personal cars last month. Amazon announced it would order one hundred thousand electric delivery trucks from Ribian and EV company that Amazon has invested in but which we should say has produced exactly zero commercial electric vehicles to date Ribian has time Amazon said the first ten thousand trucks would be on the road twenty twenty two the remainder by twenty thirty and the order would basically double the number of electric delivery vehicles in the World Stephanie Brindley only is an automotive analyst at IHS market. She said most people who have heard of Ribian are actually into electric luxury. SUV's ravine Dan has been around for about six years give or take and they first introduced to revealed their pickup truck and as she products at the Los Angeles auto show this last November and they're expecting to come to market in the next year or so and they're looking to compete in sort of a high end space. They want us to tackle align efforts from Range Rover and see that brand is a competitor for the utility vehicle people who WanNa go a little bit off the beaten path. How much of this market get as you look ahead a decade or two or three? How much of this market could be filled by automakers that maybe didn't exist a decade or two ago? It's still a challenge Alan Jr to break in and our forecast really for electric vehicles in the United States in twenty twenty five twenty twenty six is still seven point six percent of the market which is an important improvement from just under two percent last year but it's still a small percentage of the market. I think consumers aren't quite coming along. Yes fire and because automakers for additional automakers have come to bear on the segment pretty heavily it will be difficult for a brand that consumers aren't aware of to breakthrough through does Amazon's investment suggests that delivery fleets might actually be a new source of growth for I think the delivery fleets have been for several several years on target in the Commercial Space Amazon's making a little bit of an interesting play here and tying it to their sustainability goals so they may be willing to spend a little bit more on it and I don't know the size of Amazon's fleet at all but I'm pretty sure it's a lot bigger than one hundred thousand vehicles so it still only a portion of their fleet overall Paul but I still think there's a lot of opportunity in the commercial av space. If you're running an EP for a local delivery van you're usually not putting a ton of miles assigned to it into a day and if the fleet you own and it's going back at the end of the day to your own silos you had the ability to have the charging infrastructure that you need and keep it off a fossil fuels so that can be a benefit and a lot of different ways commercial vehicles especially in those short cities faces can be good opportunities as for Electric Vehicles Stephanie Brindley automotive analyst at Ihs Market Amazon's order for what it's worth will ultimately be worth about four billion dollars. Carribean wants all the trucks are produced and now for some related links. There's there's a good piece in Forbes on the size of Amazon's investment in Ribian and one from quartz about the impact on commercial e fleets worldwide. They're both at our website marketplace attack dot org but there is a interesting subplot to the ramp up in electric vehicles of all kinds and that is the grid Green Tech Media. It has a piece from last week about some key. Takeaways from this electric delivery van order and one is that electric utilities really need to start preparing to deal with the increased slow. That's coming from EVT's because of different charging times and locations. It's not likely that Amazon's new vans are gonNA. Take down the grid or anything but individual locations locations could run into real capacity problems and long-term. The grid does need some improvements. There's good reading wired from last year about how what it calls. The great plugging yes plugging is actually an opportunity to upgrade and strengthen our electrical infrastructure because we have plenty of time the revolution coming then again infrastructure and planning are those really are strong suits here in America.

Gun owners want smart guns on the market but dont want to buy them

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by ultimate software dedicated to putting people first with innovative solutions for HR payroll and talent management learn more at ultimatesoftware dot com ultimate software people first and by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation John Kelly founder and CEO at airspace experienced technology gee says in Michigan Revolution is in the air find out what planet earth is doing to help businesses make that possible at planet m dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. Dot com eighty percent of gun. Owners thinks smart guns should be on the market but they don't want to buy them from American public public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm molly would this week. Democratic presidential candidates are talking about the problem of gun violence but is there a technology solution that can make guns safer for decades gun manufacturers and even some startups have tried to figure out how to create a smart gun one that could only be fired by the guns owner owner and could be activated by fingerprints or a radio signal sent from the weapon to say a wristband gun researchers call these personalized guns but so far the tech hasn't gone anywhere. CASSANDRA prophecy is deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and research. I asked her what the barriers are. So there are two main concerns. I think that are driving down the potential market for personalized gums and those are cost and concerns about the technology technology and I think one of the challenges were trying to way is that over the last several decades we've had changes in the reasons. People people own firearms forty years ago. The ownership was predominantly for hunting. Now the predominant reason for gun ownership is self defense against other people and if you're concerned about having a firearm to defend yourself in that kind of situation than making sure the technology would work when you want to be able to use use it could be a significant issue when you look at the overall numbers of gun deaths how many of those could potentially be prevented by personalized guns. It's really when we think about the benefits of what types of injuries by fire him could be prevented with personalized guns. We're looking mostly at injuries among individuals who wouldn't be able to purchase firearms so teen suicide by firearm unintentional injuries unintentional deaths by firearm among children and then also the potential benefit to drive down homicide by reducing the ability to use a firearm that is personalized if it was stolen but when you look at the burden of firearm deaths and the potential benefit it's hard to make a really strong case that having personalized sliced guns is really going to drastically drive down our burden of gun violence in this country. So where would you like to see investment in research go I. I think that we could do a lot more to understand. Who's firearms are being used in suicide? Even though fire suicide is the leading cause of firearm mm death we have very little information on where those guns come from when they were acquired how they were stored in the home and I think that we could do a lot to to improve our ability to respond to and prevent suicide if we could get some better data to understand some of these precipitating factors. CASSANDRA prophecy is deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and research so far no smart gun has been sold at a gun shop anywhere in America and as to that question of cost CRA Fosse told us smart guns would potentially cost as much as a thousand dollars more than the dumb ones and now for some related links. There's a fascinating story in Bloomberg BusinessWeek from earlier this year about the long history history of attempts to create so-called smart or personalized guns and it includes this whole tale about a two thousand to law from New Jersey that said that his students sooner smart guns were sold anywhere in the United States then New Jersey's gun retailers could only sell smart guns within three years so oh no more dumb guns in New Jersey that of course caused an NRA freak out and death threats against a Maryland retailer who did want to sell personalized guns in two thousand fourteenth. That's at the entire effort back even more and over the years. No one has flight created a smart gun where the tech works perfectly in all situations. The Bloomberg story also includes a lot of details about how the tech industry has both tried to find an fund smart gun startups but also shied away from gun startups for fear that could lead to increased gun ownership and then of course there's the politics which is where we are going to end this podcast you can find the Bloomberg Bloomberg story on our website Marketplace Tech Dot Org.

States take on Google with antitrust investigation. This won't be quick.

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by ultimate software dedicated to putting people first with innovative solutions for HR payroll and talent management learn more at ultimatesoftware dot com ultimate software people first and by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Evan Lyle Rush enterprises is a big fan of Michigan as he put it. The future mobility is going to be decided right here in this state visit planted. 'EM DOT COM to find out why that's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. dot com. They are taking the fight to Google and facebook a lot of states a lot from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jed Kim in from Hollywood this week. Attorneys general from forty eight states the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico announced their joining forces. They're investigating whether Google has engaged in anticompetitive headed behavior. Some of those ages are also part of another investigation into similar questions about facebook. The Google investigation will be directed at how the company's Search and advertising operations may inhibit competition the agee's are coming from both sides of the political aisle remembered bipartisanship and there are already other inquiries underway at the Federal Level Congress the FTC the Justice Department Stephen. Overly reports on tax check policy for politico. We asked him to give us a sense of what the stakes are in what state will be looking for one of the defining metrics for anticompetitive behavior if you're in the US is how it impacts the consumer and our consumers paying higher prices as a result of anti-competitive behaviour. That's trickier to measure with Google. Because most of us pay nothing to use. At least that's the conventional thinking but the argument that you've heard from some of these attorneys general is is that they feel. Google has a stronghold on digital advertising meaning. If you want to place ads online you have very few options beyond google to go to and so as a result these companies pay higher advertising prices and they pass those prices onto the consumer if the state attorney's find the Google all and facebook or did break antitrust laws what happens what can they do. One common outcome of these investigations is to require the companies to change their business practices practices and perhaps submit to sort of outside review to ensure that they have made those changes another approach could actually be to break up these companies for example facebook or Google might have to sell off a piece of their business or break off into two businesses. That's a pretty heavy undertaking There's not been a ton on of success with that in the past and so while these investigations are being announced and they're getting a lot of attention. I think it is a very a difficult legal road ahead for these enforcers if they're actually going to force change at these companies when my we actually see results of the investigation if if this investigation continues to mature and becomes a legal battle. We're likely looking at years of that playing out right now. I think it's clear these investigations are in the information gathering stage and so you know I think you'll start to see in the near future companies coming forward who who haven't already done so to make complaints against these companies and how they run their business. I should add that already. You know you're seeing some antagonise. UNISOM emerge in for example yelp on the review site has long been critical of Google and complain that they engaged in anticompetitive behaviour behavior news publishers have also long had complaints against Google and claim that it's advertising business has damaged their industry. Those industries have already started speaking out and I think you'll start to see more as these investigations mature. Stephen overly is a technology reporter for politico. Could anticompetitive behaviour savior also be seen in say facebook buying up instagram and WHATSAPP Stephen says maybe it really depends on the reasons behind the acquisitions and proving intention can be tough now here awesome related links. The aren't wasting time. They've already subpoenaed Google asking more than two hundred question than demanding record. The Wall Street Journal says some of the information requests get what I just mentioned about the intent behind some acquisitions like the buying of Doubleclick ad mob and add Meld Inc those are companies companies that helped build Google's AD business the only states attorneys general who are not yet part of the investigation into Google are those from Alabama and California in the latter's absence is pretty notable considering that it's a massive state home to Google with lots of resources and an attorney general's office. That's built a a strong antitrust team the AG Heavier Bezerra hasn't said why just that it needs to protect quote ongoing and potential investigations Gatien's the L. A. Times points out that but Sarah's political campaigns have received close to forty thousand dollars from Google related entities but then there are a bunch of other theories to the time reach out to get the opinions of a lot of experts. I alluded to the many acquisitions. FACEBOOK has made of other companies. It's kind of hard to know what the exact number is. The Wall Street Journal says that's around ninety tech wise put solicit just above seventy and tech wise has made an infant graphic. It got fifteen years of facebook shopping starting.

If you have the right software from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jed Kim in from Hollywood when you were a kid. Probably as soon as you could string together sentences your parents drummed into you. The fact that you live at such and such Evergreen Terrace Springfield field wherever nowadays you can just make your kid remember three words like engine doors cubs or life gps budget and that string of random words is enough to point to a unique ten foot by ten foot patch of ground somewhere on the globe. What three words is a company. That's divvied. David the planet into fifty seven trillion squares each with its own unique string of three identifying words anyone with the company's APP or website can translate locations locations from those words it's been used to help direct emergency responders in the UK and even deliver mail in Mongolia. Chris Sheldrick is co founder and CEO we owe at what three words and he says traditional addresses are too often imprecise and overdue for improvement it is incredibly difficult still so in many parts of the world to get exactly to where you're going and in the UK and the US that can be getting to the right entrance of a building even if the address contemplates to the right place but in so much of the world's just oven areas or Roy areas just not properly match addressed tool so we wanted to provide a very simple yet accurate way all talking about any ten foot square in the world. I understand that addresses can be a little difficult to navigate advocate but I imagine a time when electricity will go out or cell service. We'll go down. Is there a way that we could use this. If we didn't have computer or smartphone capability I see what you mean if he had no smartphone and Kapiti capability yes you would be stuck to us three address in us. Norio Butts while smartphones are here with us and functioning then three would addressees can provide a really really good way to get around and just to be clear like we're not trying line to replace addresses or area names or any of this sort of historical ways that we talk about the world what we're trying to do is when you do have a small faint sane or call will some electric device which want to really simplify the way the you can communicate a precise location. How do you make money so what three words is is a free APP for consumers to use free website we license attack to businesses who wants to convert between three addresses and coordinates so for example well we charge our customers like Mercedes Benz to have what three words pre fitted into that calls. How do you see this being useful in the future as new technology develops so a lot of it is all around precision if you think about drones and drone delivery I mean Nolanda is a post to the trust can be good enough because you're gonNA have to specify the Franca another back on starting to see the software developers who make software for these kinds of things putting in what we were at this very early stage because the idea of somebody like manually typing in that GPS coordinates full adroit to make a delivery seems kind of difficult. Chris Sheldrick is CEO of what three words the words are random which can seem suspect when game winning goal points to a spot in Brazil. What do you do if you live at massive passive dinosaur pile. Can you lobby for a change. Sheldrick says nope that's locked in but you could just pick an adjacent square and now for some related links by the way you can't use what three words on Google or apple maps yet still. I've we've had fun looking at locations on what three words like if you're searching for able bodied gentlemen you'll have to swim. He's pretty far off the coast of Chile.

Its happening in Knoxville: Time, money and marketing make smaller cities viable tech hubs

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation John Romanelli Finder and CEO at airspace experienced technology says in Michigan Revolution is in the air find out what planet is doing to help businesses make that possible at platinum dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. Dot com lots of cities would like to become tech hubs but it takes time money and these days marketing from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jed Kim in from Hollywood. There are many reasons city wants a flourishing tech industry a lot of high paying jobs investments in the community community and cultural institutions of course when it grows too fast there can also be downsides like stratospheric housing prices gentrification but that's far off the radar of most cities that really want to court big tech remember the rabid fervor of the Amazon. HQ to competition for for cities that didn't get in early on tech developing as a hub is a long process with a lot of things that have to go right. Jim Biggs worked in silicon can valley for years before moving to Knoxville Tennessee where he's Executive Director of the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center which is a business accelerator he laid out the hurdles his city and others face access to capital from one though just isn't much free-flowing capital venture capital in particular that makes it into some of these smaller communities then the second is attracting and retaining talent you know I think people want to move to places where they see opportunity and where they think that that if this startup doesn't work then I've got one straight down the road that I can go to jump in there. I'm imagine there is a flip side. So what are the advantages manages well. I guess the obvious one is that the cost of living is substantially cheaper than it is. If you WANNA talk about San Francisco New York Boston that's been. I think the biggest selling point but what we found is that most of these smaller communities also have one or two unique strengths were assets that they're able to leverage in some way that aren't art being sort of replicated in places like the bay area and I think that's also been a strong driver of a lot of the the startup communities in these in these smaller regional economies finding access to investment can be an issue. How do you solid that problem. You do two things. One is you cultivate relationships with people in the communities where there is more capital and then you also also have to educate the local population about the value of investing in new business creation for a long time it it was more perceived as altruism than it was a sort of risky but potentially lucrative asset class and so you had people who had wealth in the community who were being persuaded to put money into things because there buddy was into it or because their kids brother's son was doing it which is great but then when that thing flames out and these do the you know the the responses man. I'm never doing that again and so you know a lot of people have come and gone from the the investor her community without being offered a more structured way to both do something that supports the community but also provide a return that they're looking in for Jim. Biggs is Executive Director of the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center. He says he did two things upon arriving in Knoxville one he started saying y'all to he filled his closet with orange close so he'd blend in at University of Tennessee Football Games and now for some links wired looks at the problems of brain drain from smaller cities to superstar ones like San Francisco New York Etcetera. It also looks at effort. Some places are undertaking to reverse the flow. The state of Vermont has been offering ten thousand dollar reimbursements for people to move there the air and work remotely similar program has been established for Tulsa Oklahoma. There have been quite a few takers in general smaller cities hold a salary advantage over larger cities when adjusted for cost of living techrepublic says the top ten locations are Justin. Salaries are all small to mid sized cities. These top spot goes to Brownsville Harlingen Texas followed by Fort Smith Between Arkansas and Oklahoma. My Hometown Toledo Ohio comes in at number five five. Go mud hens. The thing is this is true in general but not when it comes to the tech industry tech salaries after adjustment are still still five percent higher in large metro areas compared with smaller ones so how can smaller cities compete the Brookings Institution agrees with Jim. Big said about figuring out what unique benefits your city can offer and investing in them. That's what Syracuse New York is doing to build up as a center for developing unmanned systems tech. The city has a historical electronics industry as well as in sensors and defense that may give them a leg up on developing being drawn tech tech accelerator there has attracted many international companies.

The future of mobility is going to be decided right here in the state is a planet them dot com to find out why that's p. L. a. n. e. t. m. dot com the when piloting massive navy destroyers old school controls might be safer than new tech from american public media. This is marketplace attack demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed kim in for molly would in june twenty seventeen the u._s._s. fitzgerald collided with the philippine containership killing seven sailors us then just two months later the u._s. Mccain collided with the liberian merchant vessel ten sailors died. Meghan eckstein is deputy editor for the u._s. News which is part of the u._s. naval institute she says the national transportation safety board found that the u._s. mccain collision was caused by a helmsmen and he was confused by his touchscreen displays. He meant to slow down the ship but instead made a sharp right turn. An investigation led to more than a hundred hundred recommendations to improve safety and readiness on ships turns out. The touchscreen controls for speed are not preferred by a lot of personnel. They want physical throttles instead. The navy has taken note for new ships and will roll out a retrofit to change existing ones. Meanwhile eckstein says it's not just the control screens but also deficiencies in training that have caused confusion. I think one of the challenges is simply that there's not a lot of commonality from ship to ship of the way everything is currently allocated to the fleet so if you're a sailor in your on one ship you served there for two or three years when you go to your next assignment it might it not have the same bridge controls and might not have you know you might be moving from a physical throttle to a touchscreen or you might be moving from touchscreens at touchscreen but they're not the same aim and all the same controls aren't where you thought they were so this kind of comes down to you know with these touch screens in an emergency everything's muscle memory and if you're not sufficiently trained on them and the buttons aren't where you think they are and it's not consistent every time. He used that system in emergency. You're not going to know how to do it right. Why and when did the navy switch to touch screen throttles when the navy goes through its shipbuilding programs and it's ship modernization programs it really doesn't specify a lot of detailed detailed requirements for the shipbuilders so and a lot of cases you have shipbuilding companies who <hes> when they're making their pitches to the navy they want the most up-to-date technology they want you know the latest and the greatest that they can provide to sailors and a lot of cases that has involved moving to more digital systems more touchscreen type systems <hes> and and so this really isn't anything the navy kind of intentionally went towards. It's something that was really driven by industry and just sort of this desire to innovate and incorporate the latest and greatest technology. Oh gee what are they doing with the touchscreen now. There's a lot of ways that the trudge screens can be useful for example. There are certain <hes> cruise with smaller followership. I'm sorry ships was smaller crews where it's actually quite useful to have so much control at your fingertip on touchscreen so i don't think the navy fully wants to pull away from those <hes> also with the combat systems having a fully digitize system means that you can update it faster. You can blast out software updates over satellite relate. Even if you have a ship that's deployed so there are some cases where having fully digitized touchscreens are really useful. It just turns out you have to do that with a purpose. This one of the admiral's told me this kind of falls in the bucket of we did it because we could and i think that's becoming clear that that's not a good enough reason to have touch screen ship controls. Meghan eckstein is deputy editor for u._s. News she says about sixty destroyers old and new will get the physical throttles hopefully starting next summer and now for some related links meghan epstein recently interviewed retiring navy admiral john richardson's he he had a lot to say about how technological advances played out during his tenure. Essentially the navy he left behind is very different from the one he inherited something. I i learned from reading it is that three hundred fifty five ships is the minimum fleet size the lead necessary for achieving the pentagon strategic guidance and he guesses how many they'd really like six hundred fifty three now. You're ready for jeopardy. An article in forbes looks at two different navy ships that are incorporating and bishop new technologies in their designs one. The author says is likely headed for a lot of criticism when issues inevitably arise because it's been touted as bad bad already when it launches the other is given more leeway on performance because military officials and lawmakers have been told. It's more experimental something to learn from an incorporate into future ships.

That's pretty smart to close the digital divide in detroit any more than just wirz from american public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed kim in for molly would not having solid access to the internet is like competing in a three legged race tied to a cow looking for work. Most applications are online need to check your bank account. Pay bills dell's check medical records do homework. It's all easier if you're online and getting a lot harder if you're not detroit is one of the least connected big american cities according to the national digital inclusion alliance less than half of homes. There have broadband internet that means hundreds of thousands of detroiters stand stand on the losing side of a growing digital divide. It's judge edmunds job to help. Detroiters get online and so them why they need to. He's he's the city's first director of digital inclusion and he says the problem is in just infrastructure. We have several internet service providers and if you actually look at the provider data ninety eight to one hundred percent of detroit is covered with internet access. Sorry issue isn't necessarily internet access internet adoption meaning. What are the bears the technology adoption that are causing detroiters not to take advantage of getting into the home costing one of the big barriers. We look at poverty. Poverty directly exacerbates the digital divide something like the digital divide. That's maybe not well understood by. You know a lot of people a lot of times. When there's this kind of different understanding that there's often like a different language that's understood like is there any example of things that people say that somebody on the other side of the divide just wouldn't get yes when i was on focus groups with public housing residents in cleveland and we kept talking about applications like oh you know download an app download it up and <hes> people were thinking i was talking about job applications and that's such as light example but we've just taken technology and integrated it in and we get it but people don't this task does not sound easy and not cheap. What are you in the city gonna do to expand access us. I've identified five hundred sixty one free wifi sites all throughout the city of detroit that make money to do. I mean i'll be maybe my salary went to knowing. It and these aren't municipal networks. These are your mcdonald's or tim hortons that random nonprofit on the corner that church that has it if you go to any neighborhood where there's a lot of children and there's no library present and there's mcdonalds there. Those kids are going to mcdonald's to do their homework and i'm not saying that the city is saying go to mcdonalds and do your homework rather. It's very interesting to see the way that public wifi and free. Wi fi is driving people to certain places. I would say what's looming over. All of this is the fact that the census next year is going online and so when i have residents namely my older residents gordon were like no. I don't be like this. Are you know i don't feel comfortable during this. What are the implications around the sense. Uh being counted. There's a cast value that it every single resident has mike figure wrong but i believe every resident <hes> it's worth eighteen hundred dollars a year to the census so if you're not counted managing ask them locations around that joshua edmonds is the director of digital inclusion for the city of detroit.

So no, kids any other dependence. Anybody financially dependent on you know? Okay. So here's the the broad conversation of long-term care. I'll give you the short answer. I don't think you need the coverage. But let me elaborate as to why. Long term care is one of the leading causes of poverty. Among retirees of the numbers are really horrific. It's roughly one in two Americans over the age of sixty five will incur long-term care services. At some point the national average is about one hundred thousand dollars a year. This cost is not covered by health insurance. It's not covered by Medicare. It's not covered by social security. Meaning that if you do need the cost of care, you're going to pay for it yourself out of pocket, and this is why so many people go broke because you know, it's an eight thousand dollar per month expense, and if you're married this is in addition to the expenses, you already have because if one of you goes into the nursing home the other of you is still living at home in the community incurring the normal expenses. So this is what drives married couples into poverty, in many cases because of this but singles are a little bit different espec-..

"RV and Entercom Richmond. Welcome back to the program Rick element here. I just mentioned in the last segment that due to technological innovation. We're talking three D printing. Artificial intelligence robotics machine, learning big data. Nanotech biotech, bioinformatics fintech. Ed tech all of these technological innovations are causing massive improvements. Inefficiency and that means computers are getting better. And better at what they do. Robots are getting better a better what they do. And that means a competitive threat to you in the workplace, if an employer can buy a machine that does your job faster. Cheaper and more accurately. Never calls in sick never has a hangover and never commits harassment in the workplace. Why wouldn't your employer replaced you with the machine? And that is why it's so important that you look at your career not just at your career. You may say my career is never going away. But what about the employer you work for might your employer? Go away. I told you the story in recent weeks on the program how I met someone who's an accountant who was highly confident that their job would never go away. Because after all they're an accountant, except for the fact that she was working for toys R us. So she was fine. As an accountant which itself is a debatable statement, but her employer wasn't. You've got to ask yourself that question can my job lost automation, could my employer go out of business due to automation. And if so prepare yourself for the future here are the best jobs for the future. According to an industry study, the number one job of the future app developer they're projecting. A thirty percent increase in the number of jobs over the next ten years average salary one hundred thousand dollars, by the way, the average salary for all jobs in the country is about four. Thirty-three thousand. So after developers will not only be more in demand. They make more than twice as much as the average American after -veloping number one job in the future. Number two.

"WNBA and Entercom Richmond. Welcome back to the Rick Edelman show. You know, we talk often about exponential technologies and the impact that it's going to have on virtually every element of society. It's the focus of my new book the truth about your future, which debuted at number four on the New York Times business bestseller list, the truth about your future is encapsulated by a great quote from Yogi Berra who said the future ain't what it used to be. And the reason that this is so incredibly true because of innovations in the fields of exponential technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, big data, nanotechnology, biotechnology, bioinformatics neuroscience, and so many other elements such as blockchain and crypto assets and on and on and on and just to illustrate the incredible impact of how this could affect you. Personally. There was a recent. Contest. Between artificial intelligence and lawyers. They took twenty lawyers who had each decades of legal experience in corporate law and contracts, and they had these twenty lawyers review five NDA's, nondisclosure agreements. An NDA is one of the most basic legal contracts in business in America. An NDA is a document that pretty much everybody makes you sign before they share with you any of their trade secrets so say, yeah, we'll tell you about our business. But only if you promise not to tell anyone what we're about to tell you. You know, you gotta keep it a secret pinky swear. And that's what a nondisclosure agreement is in these documents are really really important because it protects the businesses intellectual property. So they gathered these twenty lawyers together, and they had them review five of these nondisclosure agreements. And then they gave them a test about the content of these agreements and the lawyers. Scored eighty five percent. Good. A pretty good grade. They did a good job at reviewing these these legal documents. But then they went to a they went to artificial intelligence. The a I was given the same five legal documents given the same questions and the AI scored ninety five percent but ninety four percent joking. The a I beat the humans, according to MacKenzie. They say that twenty two percent of a lawyer's job can be automated and thirty five percent of paralegals job can be automated. This means that computer technology places at risk not just blue collar occupations, but white collar occupations as well. Now, this means you've got to ask yourself a question is it possible that your job is at risk. Is it possible that your company is at risk? I remember not long ago. I had a conversation with a woman who's a CPA, and she said, I'm not worried about this technological stuff. My I'm a CPA. I'm an auditor jobs. Very safe. I wasn't even going to get into an argument with her about whether auditors are in fact, truly safe. I mean after all they're just looking at data seems to me computers are pretty good looking at data. But that's another conversations like find your job is safe. Good for you. By the way, who do you work for you? What she said toys R us. Shoes missing the point even though her career selection might be considered safe is the company you're working for immune from technological innovation and the disruption that comes along with it. That's the question. I want you to answer because if it's possible that your job is at risk either because your job will be automated away or because your company will be made obsolete. Just like borders books is gone because of Amazon just like blockbuster video was killed by net. Flicks. We have to make sure I mean, what was the last time. You saw somebody knocking on your door selling encyclopedia britannicas right killed by Google and Wikipedia we have to be sure that even though your skills might remain intact that your employer is equally intact. Because if you work for encyclopedia. Tanisha. Well, maybe you don't anymore. See my point. And if we can aim -ticipant, this we can then begin to make plans for what to do about it how to provide retraining so that you can shift from being a travel agent really wants the last time you talked to a travel agent. You just use an app on your phone to book airline tickets and hotel reservations. So maybe instead of being a travel agent, you need to be, you know, an apt developer, by the way, they make three times as much money as travel agents. See my point the disruption of losing your job as a travel agent can be replaced by an increased income, and frankly more interesting job than what you were doing before. That's the whole point of it. So that's step number one is your job at risk is the company you're working for at risk. The sooner we can anticipate that the better we can do it preventing financial devastation from suddenly an expectedly getting a pink slip. Here's the second point perhaps even more immediate for you. Your investment portfolio? What are the stocks that you own in your portfolio are the companies you've invested in going to survive and thrive in the twenty first century or are these companies built for success in the twentieth century? Do you own companies that are not positioned for the environment that we are in today, and that we're going to be in the future. And it makes a big difference. According to MacKenzie, they say that artifice intelligence, which on the one hand is going to create massive disruption in the workforce as we just described. It is also going to add more than one percent to the GDP over the next twelve years. Thirteen trillion dollars in economic benefit. So there's great news coming to this. But there are clearly going to be winners and losers. You want to make sure your investment portfolio has exposure to the theme of exponential technolo-. Companies that are either developing technology to help build their business or deploying these technologies to help build their businesses. So take an examination of the securities in your portfolio. And if you didn't pick them yourself talk with your financial adviser who did and one final element on this subject that we're gonna talk about later in the program. The one product that has not yet been disrupted that has not yet been innovated. That is perhaps the most fundamental of all products that you use on a daily basis that is essentially the same as it has been for decades. That can upon innovation reap massive improvements in everyday lives and an economic benefit as well that product. It's something I'm going to tell you about when we come back. So stay with us here on the Rick Edelman show to learn about fascinating innovation that. Oh, by the way. Bill Gates is.

"Represent the views of NewsRadio WNBA and Entercom. Richmond. We're taking telephone calls here on the Rick Edelman show heading out to Troy Michigan Paul's on the line how you doing Paul. My question is about the option of taking a lump sum pension plan been given the opportunity to take one. An wanted your input on it. So the question is whether you take the lump sum or a series of monthly checks for as long as you live. And it's it's an important question, isn't it? Because once you give them your answer, you're like stuck with it forever. So. Yeah. It's like they're no reduce no do overs and such like that. And that's why it's pretty vexing for a lot of folks. The good news is this. It is straight math. In other words, we simply want to look at how much money they're going to offer you on a monthly basis versus if we take the lump sum pay any taxes associated with that invest the rest how much income can we reasonably expect to produce from a an investment we make with that lump sum. And is that money going to be equal to what you would have gotten from the pension. So the good news is all it requires is a bit of math, and I can tell you this. Usually when we do that math for our clients. The answer is take the lump sum, an invest it on your own to produce your own monthly income, usually not always. But usually that is the more cost effective economic. The the superior answer given the two choices. Now, I say usually, and here's one big case where it's usually not true. Great. Australian our federal employees, and the reason is that in some pensions the pension amount you receive will grow over time. They will actually increase the amount of income. You're receiving swirling social security increases this year. They just announced that there will be a very small social security increase for folks, mostly about thirty or forty bucks for most social security beneficiaries. So if you have a pension where where the monthly income, you're receiving will rise annually. Then clearly that in most.

"I know that we wanna be great partners. Right. Bless you say that sales is feeling that they're not getting the level of leads either the volume or the quality that they need in order to hit their numbers and their conversion rates are holding their ASP's are holding etc. Cetera to avoid what we talked about before the pointing the finger and the potentially screaming at each other. If this was brought to you, what are the things that when you hear that where you see that you typically go down, maybe not completely. Checklist form, but what are those areas that you start to look at to try to dissect and understand what may be going on and most importantly, take some action. So I think the first thing I would do is. I would look at sort of what is the? You basically what you want wanna always do? You wanna you wanna go to where the volume is? And in different kinds of marketing jobs, I've had in different kinds of business. I've had that means something different. So like at Entercom because we have a product that you can run a credit card for him by and such a large percentage of our sales motion is derived from that the thing that you can do is you can affect the web experience and what happens on the web. And you wanna go investigate has something changed their to detriment or could we make a change to improve? That's volume is that's where small change can make the biggest difference in other centers. I've been in. It's been about the database. We know we sent an Email with a certain incentive late in the quarter. And then other situations I've been in it's been about partnership. It just really varies because it's where where's the volume coming from? That's always the first place. I look, unfortunately, there's not always an obvious answers sitting where the volume is. And that's what people start getting into this idea of growth hacks, and this and that, and you know, I say this all time, I don't really believe in growth acts. I think all generally what that means is you're sacrificing some long term good for some short term benefit. And that's rarely the right thing to do. Yeah. But I do think what you can start to do is you can start to look for. There's no obvious change. You can make with volume is now I start to look at sort of my secondary and tertiary channels for things that are sort of just have not been off demised, especially in a growing business or in a large business that's been around for a while. What happens is you have all these initiatives that have begun. All these things that were good enough. And you never really kind of squeeze all the benefit to the business out of them that you could have or should have. I mean, we were in the situation recently, even here at Entercom where there was a channel I was overseeing and we'd implemented it, and it was starting to perform and stop paying attention to it couple months. Go by and I'm looking at sort of our portfolio and trying to think how how are we going to get to the next spot in dawns on me? You know, we never actually went through step by step through that whole flow and made sure that it was right? Just never at time. We have a bothered, and if we just go back, and we just fix those things were get it's almost like free money. You've done all the hard work of implementing a process or channel. And what you haven't done is the really hard work of seeing it through. Through like, a very detail oriented way to get the benefit you want. So I guess like in a nutshell. I I go to the volume look for something broken or something easy to fix or implement. And then I go looking for channels that have high potential but haven't been fully implemented properly. And usually there's enough opportunity in those two areas that you can get your outcome. Pretty fast. What about for you? If if I'm every indicator I've got and there's no data issues at all. You know, every indicate got says marketings doing their job. And yet we're not hitting our numbers, and it looks like something's going wrong in the sales funnel. How do you think about diagnosing? Where do you look to fix it? Yeah. If I knew you're going to ask that back and might not have asked in the first place, but the question I think a little bit..
