Frank It Forward: How to Sell Ball Park Franks When No One's at the Ballpark
"The weirdest baseball season in history started last night. The Twenty Twenty Major League baseball season debuted with a clash between the Washington nationals in the New York Yankees, nationals park in the country's capital was packed with. Virtual fans, that's right, the fans you may have seen on TV. Were just images manufactured for the cameras by Fox Sports? In reality, the teams play to an empty stadium because of covid nineteen. This season teams will play only sixty games down from the typical one hundred sixty two right now. There's no intention to have many live fans at any of them just TV cameras. We won't get into the debate about why Fox decided to manifest virtual fans complete with recorded sounds of cheering applause, and the like the TV audience know. Today, we're interested in one of those things that like baseball. Itself has always seemed timeless the stadium hotdog. Too, many of us me included a hot dog goes with the baseball game. The way hot fudge goes with vanilla ice cream. They just belong together, but not this year. Needless to say virtual fans don't order francs with mustard and onions, nor do they reach out and snack a beer from a wandering vendor that's leaving entire industry, high and dry stadium vendors are out of work. That's giving Ballpark Franks the nation's number one. One brand of hot dogs and opportunity to look philanthropic, while also promoting their dogs to fans, watching Games on the small screen on Wednesday, which not coincidentally was national hotdog, day Ballpark Franks and it is donating one hundred thousand dollars to unemployed stadium vendors through a baseball charity in campaign. They're calling frank it forward. They're also asking fans to tweet their favorite baseball memories along with the Frank. It forward Hashtag of course. For every tweet that fans post ballpark will donate an extra dollar up to fifty thousand dollars within a day. Fans had begun complying. Some tweets were clearly planted by Tyson foods. ballpark Franks owner to get the Frankfurt Frenzy on fast forward, but some were genuinely sweet like a tweet from Ban Molly, Heidrick, she finally recalled attending the thousand fifteen world series game with her dad, telling her for the entire five hours that she would be Zombie the next day at school. She said she almost caught a foul ball and yes, she couldn't stay awake in math class. Her HASHTAG, no regrets. The promotion gives a sheen of sweetness and philanthropy to the ballpark francs, which happens to be America's biggest seller of the process. Meet parent. Tyson foods of course is struggling with its image these days between having covert outbreaks at many of its meat, processing plants, and being under investigation by the Justice, Department for alleged poultry price-fixing, but on a summer night. We need to dwell on the bigger picture. Maybe. What's worth spending time on? Is The marketing rivalry between BALLPARK Franks in America's second largest brand Oscar Mayer that brand owned by Kraft, was revived three years ago when its parent put ten million dollars into removing chemicals like nitrates nitrites from its dogs, the attempt to cater to the clean eating tastes of millennials. It helped nowadays craft hines has been doing well selling its enormous variety of grocery store staples to our newly stay at home nation, but how will it compete at the? No, Fan Ballpark. Hopefully not with a repeat of its attempt from twenty nineteen, a hotdog ice cream sandwich. It was made with. Get this candied hotdog, bits, hotdogs, sweet, cream, spicy, dijon, Gelato, and a cookie Bun, according to writer Michael Clare and a Major League baseball publication called cut four last August. Clare's take on what was clearly a desperate attempt to get the upper hand in the Weiner wars. This hot dog mustard ice cream. Monstrosity needs to return to whatever hell it came from. So. Far Oscar Mayer hasn't made any announcements that one this year may be given covid nineteen craft hines got a little more sensitive about the queasiness factor when it comes to the economics of the Frankfurter fight between Tyson and craft Heinz. The ballpark matters in two thousand sixteen Americans spent twenty million dollars buying hotdogs at ball games, so says the national hot dog and Sausage Council. Council apparently, that's the last time they gathered this debt. So the biggest question this year will be. Will fans watching at home still by hotdogs, or will they just eat? Whatever happens to be for? Dinner served on a real plate, not in a little cardboard dog holding. If that happens, the frank forward campaign is unlikely to give much of an advantage to Ballpark, Franks and hopefully. WHO's out of work? hotdog vendors have already found a way to turn their talents to something more lucrative. And perhaps less greasy.

"I so you might think of this as Trying to figure out whether somebody acted according to their own free will, which is the way people talk? Did they do this their own free will and according to Frankfurt if it was? The will that they wanted to have than the answer is yes, if it wasn't than the answer is no I mean. This is where I say that I think this gets to a good way to analyze how we make. For other people's actions, so when we see an unwilling addict, we have some sympathy for them because we see that they're having tension between a second order, and I order desire. They actually don't want to do drugs, but they're compelled to. They're not free, and so we have some measure of sympathy. And, that's actually what my dissertation was about. We simply described people who acted upon an impulse and. Punch somebody in the face in a bar fight. Sure enough people like think that's bad. They blame you, but if you calmly coolly planned to punch somebody in the face, people think that you're more of an asshole and they blame you more. But what the Frankfurt part came in was showing that the reason that people discounted blamed for the impulsive puncher is that they assumed that that person had a second order desire not to punch right. They lost control in the moment, whereas so they assumed an inconsistent higher hierarchical will. The first order and second order was in conflict in the case of the person who deliberated punch. People assumed that they were consistent right? They had a second order desire to punch that I. Desire to punch the turned into the punch, and that's why people are more likely to judge them badly, and this it seemed to us could explain why, in cases of Praiseworthy, Action You had an asymmetry. So if Tamla you saw somebody you were motivated so much by your empathic compassion. You emptied your wallet to give it to the homeless person..

"That's the one that he wants even if he's fine with having those other desires. That's the one he wants to be effective. That is according to Frankfurt a second order volition. And these are what is connected to freedom of the will according to Frankfurt so it's not just the second order desires. It's the second order volition that are connected to freedom of the will. Right this is the example that it gives up the doctor who wants to know what it's like to have a drug drug addiction cravings right where? Similar in instructor to what you just said, but basically the doctors like I wonder what it's like to be a serious addict, and so he's having the second order desire to have the pull of addiction. While at the same time, not wanting that of addiction to actually be effective is what I like about. This hierarchical will the way that he structuring this lens for a nice analysis of. The kinds of psychological situations that we can easily see in ourselves, and in others I think it's very keen a very keen observation. Absolutely now this is the reason I didn't use that. Example and I came up with my own is. That seems like such a farfetched example. It's this. It's this guy who works on addiction who wants to understand addiction and so really wants to have the desire, but I think these kinds of this distinction between second order volition second order desires is actually pretty common like there's plenty of desires that I don't mind having as long as they are not affect you know as long as they're not actually making me do something that conflicts with other first order desires that are stronger. And so it is a big difference to either not want to I. Don't mind wanting to have a drink when I'm reading. I would like though sometimes for me to like have the effect of desire.

"Free will meaning that you could be free according to Frankfurt's account that you could have free will in a determined world, so even if everything is determined. The. You can still have free will if what? Frankfurt says, his free will really is free. Will now in the past? We've said that. The the debate over whether something is free will rather than some other kind of freedom or capacity is not that interesting, and I still believe that however what this paper does I think really effectively is. Point, out. A lot of different ways, in which you can be free, and distinguish between them in meaningful ways and that way I think the this paper influence which is massive is is is pretty well deserved. It really did in a fairly clear way outline, different conceptions of freedom and the difference of in significance to them whether in the end you're comfortable calling that free will or not is less interesting to me, but I think the other stuff is what's really important. And you also right like you have some history with this paper because your dissertation was. Yeah I love it. You know yeah. I. Haven't read this in a while. And I remembered why I really liked it, it's. Sort of like with Strossen. which we bonded over I think early on in our in our. Intellectual relationship. Is that what you call it. Whatever euphemism. There's something that he gets right about the psychology. Of how we judge others so when I was doing my dissertation. I relied heavily on this sort of hierarchical view of the will because it captures. I think a way in which we actually judge other people right not by, and we'll get into this, not always by their what we might call their first order desires our impulses. Or wants but rather by what they want to want. Their second order desires now whether or not, this is a good way to be a compatible list about determinism and free will..

The Great Escapes with Life Death and Taxonomy
"If you've been staying inside as much as possible these past few months. That's a little easier to do now that the summer heat has fully set in your probably anxious to get out to fly the coop as it were. Animals who can fly should be getting out of zoos all the time. It would stand to reason. Though. usually therein enclosures netting across them, or they've had their wings clipped. That's a process of trimming off birds largest flight feathers, so they can't get enough. Lift when they flap which I'm probably going to end up doing to our backyard chickens if they don't knock off the free ranging. Birds generally stay in captivity pretty well, but of course there are exceptions to the rule or I wouldn't have brought it up. In two thousand, five and African Flamingo managed to get away from the Sedgwick county sue in Kansas. A massive search was launched, but The crabs backup singer was nowhere to be found. Until two thousand thirteen, when he was spotted, six hundred and fifty miles away on the Gulf coast of Texas among a flock of wild local flamingos. Bird watcher named Neil Hayward have been able to confirm the flamingos identity by the numbered band on his leg and offered to help recapture it. The Zoo essentially said I'm not even mad. I'm impressed and told the folks in Texas to leave the Flamingo to his new life with a mate who had herself escaped from a Mexican Nature Reserve. Anyone who's dealt with a parrot knows that they're too clever by half, and that certainly applies to Cuba the mccaw a resident of Vancouver's Zoos Parrot Gardens. Even, though the suet taken all precautions to prevent the parrots from escaping, it seemed that the clever girl was hell bent on getting out. On a pleasant Spring Day in two thousand nine zoo staff had moved the parrots to an outdoor enclosure. A little while later, their headcount came up short. The keepers weren't panicked. All the birds had their wings clipped. So how far could you have gotten? Surprisingly are considering. She hitched a ride in an RV. Juba got into a compartment near the vehicle's Engine Bay and hung out for three days before the family in Rv, found her. Luckily they were on one of the more stationary parts of their vacation and had only gone twenty miles, so it was barely out of their way to take what I'm assuming was a very annoyed parrot back to the zoo. Anyone who's watched? Jailbreak movie knows that you won't get very far without stealing a set of wheels. Try to imagine the end of the great escape without the motorcycles. No good. Even one? The Indian spectacle at the Berlin soon knew that. In two thousand and four, he rode a log across the moat, the rounds, the bear habitat and scaled a wall to freedom. Now that he was out, he had to use this time wisely. I stop the zoos playground. Terrified parents rushed their children away while one had a jolly go on the merry go round and went down the slide. After getting bored of that fairly quickly, one wandered off only to find a bicycle across his path. When he stopped to examine it perhaps to assess it for its usability as a getaway vehicle, the keepers who had put it there were able to track him and carry all three hundred pounds or one hundred and thirty six kilos of air to his habitat. And potentially dangerous could also describe a gator named Chuckie who got loose from the Alabama Gold Coast in two, thousand, four with a little help from Hurricane Ivan. Zookeepers hadn't been able to evacuate the gators and the storm surge destroyed their enclosure, setting them loose. Them meaning plural gators, though only chucky got any real publicity. Rapidly due to the fact that he was twelve feet or three point seven meters long and weighed about half a ton. That makes for better copy. Zoo officials weren't as worried about Chucky, going native, as they were of Chucky, going up to people expecting to be fed as he had for the past fourteen. Here's a situation that could get very ugly very fast. Luckily dedicated alligator retrieval team from gator land in Orlando was able to catch chucky less than a week later. Some animals get by with a little help from their friends or even from strangers. Three kangaroos staged a daring escape from a wildlife park near Frankfurt Germany. The name of whom I am now going to attempt to say. The hawksbill shoot par concert. It is what it is taken early vote. They escaped by going under the fence. Thanks to the work of a Fox and wild boar.
Why Did Mitsubishi Furlough the SpaceJet?
"Development of the Mitsubishi regional jet kicked off with great fanfare in two thousand, eight, the to family aircraft offered an environmentally friendly design and state of the Art Pratt and Whitney geared turbofan engines. It was also a milestone for Japan's aerospace industry, which has developed just one complete commercial aircraft since World War Two. The Y. S. eleven turboprop, which ceased production in nineteen, seventy four. Aircraft Lesser Titan Steven udvar-hazy told Mitsubishi at the time that if it could pull the program off, it could quote do what Toyota has done in cars and quote, first deliveries were targeted for two thousand thirteen, but that date came and went, and the program struggled with repeated delays. Recently rechristened the space jet, the program seemed to have stabilized, and then the covid nineteen crisis hit faced with its parent company's need to drastically cut expenses. Mitsubishi aircraft has suspended development of one of the to space. Joe Models halted test flights and wound down production. So. Can the program survive this setback? And how does it alter the already turbulent dynamics in the regional jet market? Joining me to try to make sense of all this are Bradley. Parrot, aviation weeks Beijing bureau chief who has followed the Mr J.. procreate spaceship program for many. And in Frankfurt, aviation weeks executive editor for Commercial Aviation Jens Flottau so, Brad, let's start with you. Would you fill us in on? What's going on with the space jet? Yes, there's a very apt metaphor we can use basically the programs being fellow D- Justice and employer over the past few months may have told her a worker to start working. Just go home, but bought consider him or herself sack. The the sorry Nyj I had space jet. Basic Development is basically being welcomed down to a very slow low level It's not being completely. Stop so far as I can tell and very little is happening for the moment for how long well we don't know, but just as an employee as being followed has not has not been set. The Emma J program has not been canceled. Sorry, spaceship program, forcet an Olympic explain exactly what what is flowing amounts to. The company has six prototypes which are being completed. There were four main tests light. Light, base, in Moses Lake in Washington that fleet was waiting for another aircraft, the sixth most recently built one, which is the one which is crucial cruise, one is the one that actually embodies the the standard of design which can be certified, and the aircraft was supposed to go was supposed to carry the main burden of the remaining flat testing that was a situation as about three months ago two months ago. what's happened now of course is that. Is that the mostly basis bay multiple? The small remaining there just to maintain the the prototypes. That's important. They're not being scrapped or anything like that to being maintained and that six prototype which has finally finished in March is still in Meghalaya, and that's where it's interesting for the moment. At the State of the program, most development is actually flight testing, and they're not doing The production will. Production is continuing for the eighth off seven speed finished. The eighth is, we'll be finished. But other production is being stopped. which will mean -Tory work. Flight testing work. What's left? The development engineering team, and that's going to be reduced to some extent, and that's basically what's going to be puttering along for the duration one lost. Important point is that. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries which is the majority owner of Mitsubishi. Aircraft decided in early May to go ahead with the purchase of Combodia CJ program, including factories that indicates love commitment to the program. Brats I'm I mean the the most intriguing part of the to be at least is the shelving of the M one hundred at the smaller. Version of the two, and as far as I can tell, they are going back to the Bronx drawing. Bolt for this program now that it has finally become a scope compliance the US. I'm just curious. Do you have any indications about what's that's relaunch might entail is becoming bigger is becoming smaller was a would at all. No simple answer is no. They probably don't themselves

Croatia on a mission to save the summer from coronavirus
"Why don't WANNA use the would post covert yet? That sounds too optimistic but nonetheless. Some encouraging news from Croatia Croatia has been very keen to get it some a holiday season on some sort of track. I hesitate to say back on track but it's trying to salvage the summer season and as part of that today it's opening its borders at two people from ten different European Union and handily. This includes pretty much all of its major tourism markets Austria Germany Slovakia and the Czech Republic. They're all allowed to now to enter Croatia for holidays People from Slovenia were already being allowed in so between all of those countries. You've pretty much got I. Think about seventy percent of the tourists who had Croatia over the summer season and the the tourism season is terrifically important cratia because it provides about twenty percent of the country's GDP and almost all of the visitors arrive in July and August. It's very very heavily. Weighted towards summit to getting people on the beaches in Istria and Dalmatia. And if you've ever been there in some Andrea as I think you have you'll know The particular nationalities which predominate Yeah I have been there in the summer. The the donation coast is You know as you well know an absolutely glorious part of the will travel in. It's it's excellent news. That people will be able to do it. But how carefully is Croatia being about this because obviously when you welcome people into your country right now you potentially welcome covid? Nineteen right along with them. Yeah and that's a really big thing for Croatia. Because it had some of the most the tightest restrictions of any European country in the time of its when it declared an epidemic inside Croatia It was very restricted. In terms of how creation people could move inside that country even inside their own cities and so opening up the country as it is now obviously does bring risk. So what they've done is they've chosen the country's Catholic. You will note. That Serbia is noticeably absent from the list of ten countries. Which is it's opening its border. Stay it's got a website called into Croatia on which people can enter their details whether they've been in contact with anybody with covid nineteen with they've recovered from its own and so forth all of this meant to firstly ease the passage of people into the country but also enable contact tracing if the raw outbreaks and we've seen recently for example a plane arrived from Frankfurt and Croatians are grab More than a dozen passengers and crew ended up testing positive the COVID nineteen but on arrival they all given contact details so very quickly The authorities were able to track trace and and snuff any sort of outbreaks out before they got a chance to get going and they're going to have to take this approach on a much larger scale. Of course the to have any sort of summer tourism season.
How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic
"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES. The facebooks and people like that that is also

The 2020 Virus Crash, the world is shutting down, keep healthy, cheer up, we will beat this
"Lots of change of course since the last time you were with me on the show as after news for you wonder what will make you very happy. United. I know. You don't fly united but if you were to fly again united as asked cabin crew to controlling to dimming windows of the liner essentially say allow the passengers do whatever they want these goal. I mean I understand why they dim them at certain points of a flight on mass. So the whole cabinet atmosphere changes especially when it's supposed to be time to to sleep what? I get frustrated by than when they're locked that's what management that it has to do not lock the system. Essentially I wonder if they're able to restrict the DIM nece. So if you say you can. They're unlocked but they can't be fully open which I would kind of understand. That would certainly a piece people like me. But that's interesting that they've had such volume of feedback that they've made that change exactly or they just listened to layovers. That's that's more likely exactly the second news I hinted at it in the intro did about you is that. Berlin seems to be happening actually happening because thunder as actually scheduled flights on October thirty first. Which is the opening. Apparently the soft opening date for a full opening November eighth. It's pretty unbelievable. You set yourself that you were not believing and I wasn't believing it either but it seems stupid will open I. I don't know why it is changed times. It's interesting. There is a third party setting a date for their moving as opposed to the airport authority or anybody on behalf of the airport saying this is going to be the open day. It's it's an airline saying this is when we're going to shift and it's all their operation right. It's not it's not just a test. It's this is when we're GONNA start flying out of that airport and remember when we did both of the airports of berlin-tegel and Schoenfeld lift as it doesn't fly there. They send eurowings. I mean does Fi of course but I'm wondering now if we will actually have proper operations as Frankfurt in they don't they don't really so far so I I still cannot believe it. I mean I don't watch. I just can't believe that he's going to happen. And you know we running Joe too was was going to arrive. I Will Italia Fail I. It seems that they will never fail. Will the Max Awry? I A berliner. After these two are still in contention the Mexico to arrive before Berlin. I duNNo. It's very because with strange times. We'RE LIVING. I don't lie about answer window. So there on office and depends on Crete where you sit and Jeez. I want to give up to Andrew. Curran is a writer for a site that we both read quite often called simple flying and so quoted us like mentioned us which is very nice. Exactly that okay. Because we were saying like who's going to be I you know the Max or and well. He said that we did. Put our money onto Max coming. I was still have a shot of that Andrew. You're basing northern New South Wales in Australia. I I'll show her friends will maybe having a strap. Is it coming up at some point this year? Maybe maybe so into you will have it. His favourite airline is a Singapore Airlines. Here you have very taste I was gonNA say fair enough. I'm just wondering what's Your airport. Because you say northern New South Wales Brisbane is probably close to you. But that's already Queensland believe so which one is it Andrew? Just reach out to us and thank you for for listening. And since I'm on simple flying they also have a podcast. It's a very cool podcast as well. Everybody's doing podcasts Alex. We're we're the okay boomers podcast now because we're like the og in like everybody does podcast. It's very close. The I think they started like early. Feb they also have like these kinds of thirty minutes once a week. Type of Schedule which is really cool for those who don't want to listen to US venture for two hours every odd weeks that we we. Do we do this? So simple flying. You can find it on apple podcasts and everywhere and this is Super Cool Bravo guys. Congratulations more the merrier. Since we're talking about okay boomer of Aggie podcasts. Ourselves to reviews I on apple podcasts. Five stars thank you. The title is where has this? Been all my life from BIG CASTS. Eleven from the. Us These guys are awesome. Content is always amazing. Well thank you so much. They really open up the world to people through their travels. I'm not traveling and personal experiences. I love their personalities. Spot guests is great for any AV geeks such as myself or someone who loves travel. Thank you so much and the second one is from already in MS ready in MSP. Of course Minneapolis which we now covered as you heard. Alex great details on Global Airlines Five Stars Great Show. I always enjoy your shows and look forward to the next one is interesting to hear where you have been and the airlines. You flown on question receive people. I love it that people use reviews. Us question looking at booking a trip to Rome on American Airlines with miles and seem to be able to get much better rate if I had to stop in either Madrid on you barrier or London. Nba would you recommend this? And if so which city in our line? Well Man Rudy going to Rome today not sure. I don't think that here experience. If you quite what you hoped it would be the. What would you do for when if all this stops because Italy for those? Who Don't keep track of isn't a full lockdown. So I mean I know that Ryan ourselves fly Suzanne set from Rome but besides that I think no one flies there. Would you if you weren't? Us would you fly direct with a? Would you prefer a barrier via Madrid? I know our love for Narnia and or we e throw with. I don't know the long haul product. I don't really know the shorthaul product either so I don't know but between the two I would still go a in premium an above but be a in economy. Yeah and if you really want to stop so meaning if as out of the question be. I think it's still a better choice in because you will not be changing terminal in Saudi throw. You'll be fine. Yeah passing so I. I know some people might disagree. But and it's not that we don't pay you better. I think the whole product I've done because I've done to Madrid three forty I think. Yeah it's okay. There's ochre like looking at each other as the be a business for instance but it's it's okay. I think still better. So how's your flu Alex? Well just waiting for the inevitable. I can't do this all any of us can do anything. Yeah exactly it's it's so strange man. Up China Eastern has introduced a new coronavirus glass. Oh on top of visas. Glass preemies coronavirus. The last three row after starboard side off their aircraft will be reserved for those who show potential signs of sickness. Now it's not called the coronavirus. Plus that's me actually making that up but they are actually segregating a bit of the aircraft for people that might have signs of sickness. I I don't know how it works but yeah people that develop the symptoms during the flight. Surely you shouldn't be traveling if you already have this and maybe an epidemiologist would be able to tell us if this is complete waste of time it feels like a complete waste of time. Yeah I said in my very long intro in the previous episode I'm sorry guys it was thirty minutes of renting that Yeah you should be flying if you if you're sick even James Von for crying out loud is my God. I'm like I'm so unhappy about that. That was you. Were not traveling. At least seeing James Bond like a month would have been called but no we don't even get get oil. You can't go. I mean people are not supposed to the movie theater anyway. That's what we're doing right now. Alex Social Distance. What exactly I don't know man. I I think I have a lot less apocalyptic view than this or more A. There's very little I can do about it. That's true however I think that's that's very true. I'm being mindful as not being panicky and I. I see people being panicky. I think that I mean we'll come to that. Actually know what planes it becoming the safest place for social distancing because they're at and the prices are dropping some of the. I mean I think what we see on. Social media is the extreme cases where there's four people on a flight to wherever it may be but the data is now emerging to that showing that these these flights are tanking. And you know now. These reports are coming out. That airlines are running virgin. Nba running empty flights. Just to keep the slots alive gump to that. Yeah Yeah it's not. I mean I think it was of all of the industries that could suffer the most initially. Who knows what the future holds travel and particularly airlines. We're going to be the ones that got hit
The Future of Professional Relationships with Andy Lopata
"Does the professional relationship strategist actually do? I guess the answer is pretty much in the title but I'll work with organizations and individuals within those organizations to help them look how the professional relationships they build Com charge their business And Charlie career If you look at most to the challenges and the skill sets the leaders and Successful business people focus on that that that powered by relationships whether you're looking at change management leadership in itself business growth. You can list challenges and pretty much. Everyone could be made easier. I'm better if you have the right connections with the right people in the right place and strong relationships with them but we tend to leave that to chance and what I try and do is encourage those people to think about the most strategically. Well if you're asking someone to do something that will involve change or is uncomfortable. You WanNa be asked by some on you actually like you've got to lock them in that. Yes I would do that for you because we have a relationship at some point down the track on my need to ask you to do something. And it's equipped Park Roy. Something really struck me Back in January I was Speaking events event organizers before Mytalk I listened to the opening plenary session and it was a lady called name. Ray Who's the COO of I make switched? One of the biggest event organizers in the world. They run you know mixed they run events of fifteen thousand twenty thousand people in in Las Vegas And in Frankfurt and non Emory was talking about how they making their event sustainable and she had three key points in. The second point was collaboration and she threw out the talk. She talked about the different stakeholders she needed to have on board in order to make the event sustainable. And I since I had the chance I rushed out. I got to the slides and I created a brand new slide for my presentation listing stakeholders and the point I made is you had in the started with the team. But she didn't say the team it wasn't the IMAX team. It was they Finance team the sales team the delivery team so you had all the teams with an I. Max You had all the different suppliers so you had. The people that build exhibition stands the transportation on ground level to cleaners to the cleaners. Caterers You had the clients and bring the clients on the journey and I listed about twelve or fifteen of just from my notes from the talk and and my opening to my presentation that morning and it's become the opening this new presentation. Now anyway was what's the one thing that's going to make your life easier in bringing all of those stakeholders forward and it's professional relationships strong relationships on and I had a quote from now lamb. Ris At the end of that which said If you have your partners on board you multiply your impact. So that's what I try and help people and I think people don't recognize the power of professional relationships will go into more detail but we think networking is. I have connect with you on Lincoln sidewalk and his whole story around that you actually for years were known as Mister Network But you start to move away from this. So is networking now a dirty word networking word and I've always said that if I could find the replacement for it then I'll make my fortune I. It's it's not as dirty words it used to be Two thousand eight changed that you know when when people started losing their jobs linked in activity might experience absolutely spiked People were maybe on it but weren't really using it. Two Thousand Eight nine sort of sea change as people either looking for new job or felt their jobs under threat And I saw massive change. In the way people engage with networking from that point to the point way up before the crash I was at an event for women in technology. I did the bravest thing I've ever done in my life and I've parachuted and jumped so on abseiled. I put my hand up and asked a question of a panel An event could women technology where they were one hundred ninety nine women in the room where man and I wasn't even in technology I ask the panel about the the difference for a woman to a man networking corporate space. Because at the time I was moving from running a network for small businesses and knowing that I wanted to move into working with corporates and one by one. Shut me down They said you know we don't do that. We don't have time to go to the POB after work. We manipulate Everything that they said about networking was negative. Even though everything I would define networking is was represented in advice. They gave presentations One year two years later I was at an event for another women's event. It was European professional women's network. I'm one of the speakers of hundred fifty women in the ordinances time. How many of you think networking is important? Your career every hand went up. That was a huge change in a short period of time. So I don't think networking is as dirty word as it was in the you know before. Two thousand eight having said that it still misperceived misunderstood undervalued. It still seen as a soft skill is seen as a sales tool a saint something for junior levels. And it's it's all of those things and none of those things And and the reason for my shift from a focus on networking to a focus on professional relationships of which networking forms a part Is the I was getting pigeonholed into how to work a room You know my friend. Susan Susan Rohan wrote the book how to Work Room probably thirty years ago. Now it. It's a word is a phrase that's really stuck in the popular vernacular and we do need to know how to make the most of networking events but they set tiny percentage of what I do and when you talk about professional relationships conferences and events are just one tool. And I've been preaching that message for a long time but I think it took the shift a wife and talking about networking and talking about relationships for people to get that then. If you want to build professional relationships you can at how networking events and conferences. Sit into your took
Germany is battling a resurgence of right-wing fundamentalism
"Our Europe correspondent Samantha. Holy recently had an urgent call to head to Germany after a right wing extremist attack in the city of Hanau. Germany is battling the resurgence of right wing fundamentalism. It was the third attack like it within a year. The Chancellor Angela Merkel says it's driven by racism but how the government now stops the spread of the far right ideology is paramount. His Samantha on a nice in February. I was woken just after midnight. To be told of the attack in Hanau I'd never heard of the small German city outside Frankfurt and so the first thing I did was google its name. I learned. It's an industrial city. That was all but destroyed during World War. Two it's a short thirty minute drive from Frankfurt and when we landed there early the next morning we went straight to Shiva with a gunman had first struck there. The grief and shock among the locals was palpable. Teas ran down the face of this long time. Now resident as I spoke to him yesterday afternoon I went was my granddaughter for Gymnastics. Right here in the gymnasium and many foreign also and I thought well everything is working. Fine upset you listen years what subsidy suits. It's real piece of that so this man might have come in the afternoon as well and you would have a no ninety percent of now was destroyed. During the Second World War after that there was an influx of immigrants including many from Turkey who relocated to Germany to help feel labor shortages. There are three million. Turkish nationals living across Germany. Now this man was born in Hanau but still has a feeling of being an outsider. I know two person His for my brother and Yeah it's terrible for us. It's terrible I I don't know I tell you you say and where are you from? And how long have you been here? I am Kurdish from Turkey and I was born in Germany and I live since twenty years. He Hano Kessler. It's very very hard for us. In Hana very high why's yes because Hano is very small city and in this dimension to the attack of people the migration background no. I I cannot. This accent escapes live. He now are you worried. As we went about our work in this small city the multiculturalism was clear and most people spoke of a coexistent working and the pace being destroyed. Hundred Hundred Hundred Thousand People's Ana an all time. S- quiet very good in this times. All kaput US reminds you of what what happens? In America I think in America is all all week. I'm not happy to Shisha cafes with the target of the extremist gunman five of the nine keeled would took ish later remembered during a traditional Turkish funeral the night after the attack the main square of the town was packed to overflowing for vigil a sign that the community support. It's migrants some small solids for those rocked by terror. That was Samantha Holy in Germany.

German gunman calling for genocide kills nine.
"A forty three year old German who posted a manifesto calling for the complete extermination of many races or cultures in our midst shot and killed nine people of foreign background. Most of them Turkish in an attack on a HOOPLA and other sites in a Frankfurt suburb authority said last night he was later found dead at his home along with his mother and authority said they were treating the rampage as an act of domestic terrorism. The gunman attacked the hookah bar in a neighbouring cafe in Hanau around ten PM on Wednesday killing several people then travelled around one and a half miles and opened fire again. I on a car and then a sports bar claiming more victims. The bloodshed came amid growing concern about far right to violence in Germany and stepped up efforts from authorities to crack down on it including last week's detention of a dozen men on suspicion. They were planning attacks against politicians and minorities Chancellor Angela Merkel said the shootings exposed the poison of racism in Germany and she pledged to stand up against those who seek to divide the country. People have Turkish background. Makeup Germany's single largest minority and Turkey's ambassador said five of the dead were Turkish citizens. The gunman was identified. Only as Tobias are in line with German privacy laws and confirmed that he had posted extremist videos and manifesto with confused ideas and far fetched conspiracy theories on his website. Gemin- police will also examining video. That he may have posted online several days before the attack in which he detailed a conspiracy theory about child abuse in the US in his manifesto.

Alexander Waske: Tour Coach and Academy Owner
"High Alexander Functions. Tennis podcast thank you great to have you on board are I. Came across of the Alexander Voskan Tennis University as I saw on bags around some tournaments. I saw some coaches walking around two bags. I'd never heard of it before and I was always curious so I went off and did some research and this was last year so I've been falling ever since I've posted some your videos. I have you on our academy our top academy lists so it's great to finally speak to you. Thanks for that like just going to your resume. So you've worked with some cray players to pass speed caregiver meltzer Haas Bryan Curtis and even. Now you're working with some great players on especially let's say on the juniors who working with Yoenis four Tek who won grand slams last year such a great junior strokes are amazing anytime we posted on functional tennis. It's really amazing on. You're also working with a couple of the players on the Belgium Davis Cup team lower still lower Bella Mons on. Yeah few more. You're doing you're busy not me. We are a team here. So it's it's not me. We're working together with a couple of professionals here. So tennis coaches fitness coaches therapists. It's always a team effort here. Tell me cut me. Where's IT based in Germany? We Are Approximately fifteen to twenty minutes from Frankfurt Airport which is in my opinion great location as the International Airport. Gets you anywhere in the world and mostly direct flights? So you're in the center of Europe with Germany and Frankford is the center of or the middle of Germany so it's easy for us too excess anything here in Europe and even long fights I mean everything or usually everything has direct so we save a lot of time. By by this and also frankfort spend my hometown. So I've been I grew up here. I know the area Illinois everything here. So that's why we here. It's great to be in such a central. He'll be juniors playing tennis Europe term and Sir. Itf Tournaments Futures Challenges could hope to be. There's so much going on in Europe and also for the flights as you mentioned but tell me about Your Academy your facility. How many courts you have. What's your setup like? They're always thought of two thousand and ten. I started very very tiny. We had one player and one coach We built this from scratch. We are here working at the Federation. We have four. Indoor rebound ace courts we outdoor rebound escorts and then outdoors. We have also a five day. Courts we have a gym. We have ten rooms to sleep For people that come in for a weekly base now. We have other options for our long-term customers that can save an hour to you house. That is a bit outside of the sites and Ben. We have other apartments as well so everything is basically here on site visit therapy and everything that we need. The restaurant So yeah it's it's not the largest site we can't compare this to the large European academies like more talk no and Ross. We look for very high quality on our courts I think which even that so far I think the small academy the Smaller Academy sorry not too big more look more commercially cutting small and seem to have a better more family atmosphere on something you mentioned. Is You like to build character in the players? You work which can you tell me what you mean by building character with your players. You know if you're getting young people in here. Having a lot of influence has left rights errands media friends other players and so on at the end of the day. I believe that's building a good character and I'm gonNA come back to. That will make them successful people. Nobody can guarantee professional career of them making millions of euros in stuff like this but if they are hot working if they are focused if the discipline if they work hard on reaching their goals if they take a setback if they take a loss get back up on their on their feet and try it again and again and again and again. This kind of character will succeed in life so I think that our number one priority or our number one job is to create personalities that will succeed in life and then they will always be happy that they've been here No matter hulk with a end up in Tennessee great. And how do you do you give me an example? So we set clear rules It's also a lot about talking to the kids making them understand why we do certain things and for ten years. I've been busting my Thoughts to get an atmosphere here where everybody works hard and all the kids that we have now and I'm really happy about this really into getting better so you can always spend your whole day playing computer games. You can spend your whole day going out at night drinking Blah Blah Blah or you generate an atmosphere where everybody works hard and if there's one kid that does work hard the other kids don't want to practice with him because it's it's also for their benefits for their practice so I think that we Getting there that the intensity here is very high that there's a clear plan of how they play and that they really spend time with their game. They're strokes and a half to write a journal of what they've learned throughout the day. They have to visualize nights what they've done and the next steps that are there. We make individual plans for them. We make individual schedules and at the end of the day. You also need to have time for for the if you have fifty players to take care of at the same time. It's a zoo. So our coaches have four to six players that they take care of and I don't think that they can do more so that they have enough time to to talk to the plan to also know what kind of personality they are and what. They're struggling with what they're all right. Now tell me if somebody if I want to apply to come to your Kademi what you look for players that send you emails to say they. WanNa come train with you. What we don't do is we don't sign any contracts through the Internet. We don't do that. We have to meet the player. Find out if it's a fits. We want to see if we really like working with that player and at the other on the other hand the player has to tell. I mean usually. It's the parents that also behind this The player has to say this is where I WANNA be. This is the best place in the world. I don't want to go anywhere else and we can find a way but I I want to very very clear and strong commitment for this and this place is not perfect for everybody. I mean this other academies out there that are doing a fantastic job and Certain personalities will like this here and other personalities will prefer something else through your right if you try and fit everybody in. I think you're structures all over the place. I agree if you WanNa make you happy. You're going to generate a mess. They're going to have strict rules. I mean we are German so if you come one second late for practice your practice is over. It's it just doesn't happen you run for today. Yeah we also worked very early in the morning at seven thirty. We organized in structure. As Germs. Do Things and this is a strength. We are probably the worst dancers and other countries. Show us. How the Party will we? We're good at other things one of my best friends. Fabian is a chairman on definitely knows how to party. I didn't learn. Jeremy travelled a bit so definitely did a stint in the states. I think that's re- picked it up so you start early tomorrow to. What's a typical day so for your? Let's say for your teenagers. There's no real tip of the day because when you run a period as Asian you have weeks where you work really hard. And then you have weeks where you worked less and you regenerate more so we work up to ten sessions a week if the players practice full than they have a Monday and Tuesday where they have two sessions into fitness sessions on Wednesdays. They have Tennis session one session. Thursday Friday again to each Saturdays one tennis and Yoga. That's a tough week here but again we also have other weeks where we watched that the players are doing more mobility or region more stretching more. Physiotherapy it really depends on what's a but the week is planned for them. Take a lot of boxes there. The one thing I know. Is that the coaches care here. They really work hard. Some of them travel twenty to twenty five weeks a year with the players to tournaments. They really care. And that's what I really like Nobody here looks at the clock. All the time and says Lesson is op. I always say don't teach lessons. We coach players and different thing for me. So Time. Watching a bad characteristic. If two people are counting the time I know one player we feature quite a bit in the past two years is Yoenis four tech. He trains with you and he was world number one junior last year. One Grand Slams. How long has he been trained in? What you almost six years now. At that time we didn't really have a junior program and he was recommended to us and we had to look at him and I fell in love right away and I knew that this was probably the best hand eye coordination that I've ever seen in my life. So yeah just jump in there. Did you see the video with the wooden spoon? Yahoo hasn't I mean one of the most popular videos intenders. I would say so. You know what I'm GonNa send you a video just for you and you can post it on your side. Where he hits were the wooden stake now. Oh yes that is amazing. You can see on that. Looks like and then we have another junior now. Who's twelve and he was hitting really well with it and he did it with. Jonas and Jonas told me Alex I think the guy's better with a wooden stick me now because I haven't hit with it for a while so I think that was quite

He organizes members to protest against Merkel's politics although he's originally from the southern state of area his rhetoric specifically weekly addresses Germans from the former East by don was ordered in the same boat. There are many among you who suffered under the system the chassis and who knows who is all in the government. He means the former East German secret police. The none of the people I've talked to trust the government and the person they trust least of all his chancellor merckel now they're yelling Makomo SPEC Mirko must go not only because she's part of a system they think is corrupt but also because of her decision to let. Refugees flirt links politic invest in saying she never asked the German and people he doesn't buy the humanitarian fat Merkel's cited in defensive decisions. He says wars and places like Syria and Afghanistan are just internal conflicts that we shouldn't meddle west least of all take in the refugees that are being rejected by all the countries entries. Yup Sporting does one have you. I'm sweating. There's another reason that a lot of empty members don't want refugees and Germany. They're too costly this say Germany has debate so much money just to get them settled. It's not an investment. They WanNa make back in the suburbs of Frankfurt Oder in Thomason. Franco's kitchen I asked Thomas About Shaffer and about why he thinks at some Germans are so resistant to the idea of diverse society and he named some of the usual culprits that we hear about in the US to like a lack of jobs and resources is and the fear that refugees will take those away. But Thomas Things that there's another even bigger barrier to integration even thirty years after German Reunification East Germans themselves haven't been integrated this by. Has You speak German okay but the culture is different to traditions are different and a longtime. They haven't had perspective in in her own Rowland. It was an immigrant without leaving her house. Just saying because it's like Germany's expecting affecting East Germans to be open to integrating refugees but they themselves haven't been integrated or they've they themselves. This is trying to integrate nor experience. An integration by himself so in other words he says East Germans integrating refugees is a bit like take the blind leading. The blind experts spoke to said that there are real structural differences between the East and West to even thirty years after Unification Germans in the former east on average receive less pay for the same work. They lack representation. The government and in university and company leadership positions one. Recent study showed that ninety. Three percent of Germany's five hundred largest firms are all still based in the West given the scarcity of opportunity many is German see refugees and migrants as has competition rather than a chance for revival. Yeah the problem is the more they integrate the harsher the debates around integration. Are this is what we are seeing clearly clearly now. That's Mike for Tom. The director of the Berlin Institute on Integration and Migration Research instead of thinking about jobs as zero. zero-sum game says Mica the only solution is to figure out how do we expand opportunities for everyone. How can artificial artificial intelligence and all these other developments that are surely going to change society forever? How can those create new jobs in other words? How do we expand ban the pie instead of fighting about who gets last crumbs because only thinking if he comes I have to leave if she comes? There's no place for me. This is actually how we're driving our societies into a non-democratic struggle. That makes us all very very nervous at the moment and the AFDC campaign on this idea that refugees are taking those crumbs away that they're a threat to the German way of life in the last regional elections. They were so successful with their message. That in one eastern state. They nearly beat Angela Merkel's party Christian Democrats but came in a close second at slept on the other hand Michael Heidi Charlotte and the rest of the slug predators are instead trying to imagine what a different society could look like one in which the members co create a bigger pie.

Capitalism Broughton you promises but it brought route new unknowns to an after reunification many east Germans felt like they were on the losing side of history they had lived under communism for forty thirty years but suddenly their entire political system and its ideas were a radical. Did and many people struggled to survive in this new capitalist world so my colleague Griffin I decided to head to Frankfurt Oder because we wanted to know how newcomers comers have changed an eastern city that still struggling with the long term effects of reunification and how the newcomers and turn have been changed by a Frankfurt for Tomas and Franca change started at this kitchen table before shave.

And that's how they met Schaefer Schaefer if shares the sense of curiosity and openness that Tomas Infanta have and that brought them to her. After just a couple of years here she speaks ext nearly perfect German and she even does something that many Germans are not very good at or at least known for. She cracks jokes and the the language like she is really funny. She's got that SAS that mute a lot of our conversations at the kitchen table sound like this But three years ago before Tomas Franco met her Shifa was not doing so well. She's been circling in in and out of asylum shelters for nearly a year and she said that she felt isolated there. She really missed her family. She struggled with recurring nightmares bears with insomnia depression. Eventually she stopped eating and it got so bad. That doctors at one of the shelters sent her to the hospital. The the same one at which Franken Thomas were organizing volunteers. They heard Schaefer was begging the nurses not to send her back to this island shelter so they visited her and Thomas. WHO has this natural gift for? Making people feel at ease tried out his Arabic on Schaefer to say hello to Mrs. This is Arabic skills where maybe a bit rudimentary but the two of them clicked and knowing that shave had nowhere to go Thomas and Francke offer to take her in a few days later they picked her up got into a car and started the drive home through a landscape. Scape that is very different from Damascus. Where Schafer's from instead of packed streets high rises there were fields and a wide aide open sky? Let's listen as this is immortal. Finders Donka is telling. The story of their drive when Schaefer looked at the sky and told her marked on God didn't allow them look funke. Allah made that not gone in Francke was like growing up. She was taught that religion wasn't the thing of wonder but opium for the masses. This one of the League you on Dizzy Canyon. When visit by negotiation as Franca wasn't alone in this culture shock it was the first time Schaefer Med atheists assists let alone divorced atheists? Where'd remarried Thomas Jokes back? We're living in a wild wild marriage in these suburbs. Outside of Frankfurt Schaefer is the only foreigner and it's hard for her to gone noticed why should be giant and she says she's the only person here wearing a headscarf besides the field field and trees and trimmed lawns. There's also confederate flag displayed in one of the neighbors yards. It's a sign that some Germans use as a standard for swastikas CAS or other symbols of white. Supremacy are legally forbidden in the country. Schaeffer says that she received trained looks when she arrived in Frankfurt.

Asked when East Germany reunified with West Germany the dancing halls where she used to waltz and Fox trodden tango have all been closed and the buyers was owner. She's to know may have been replaced by Burger joins. She says she can't afford of course She knows the east was far from perfect. Like it wasn't always easy to buy things like cars and fruit and there was constant surveillance. Dissidents dissidents were arrested somewhere even killed but people forget what East Germans accomplished like that they were. Among the world's top producers served with their semiconductor plans their steelworks and matchstick factories desire for employed publique in visa. But after re-unification those factories were closed down and outsource across the border to Poland where labour and production costs are cheaper with always. Its loses kite.

There were rows of fountains and flower beds that framed concrete paved gathering space. But what she misses.

She says every person for themselves Another very visible sign of changing east are foreigners when Chancellor Angela Merkel's kept the German borders open in two thousand fifteen gene refugees started coming into the city and a nearby towns volunteers who stood at stations with welcome signs were pitted against those who wanted them out. And in some parts of the East there were even neo-nazi rallies and violent attacks. Heidi would have never been one of those people marching at a Neo Nazi rally but to her mind. Foreigners took away the few jobs the little money and the housing. The city had Duh. Nuh Uh not hype Eastern Bentley in minor born on Clinton.

I won't use it for skiing but there's there's no question that I'm in that Magnum back in the day. The dog came out as as Nici as that char was. It was pretty cool man. We're going to I think so. I think it's an interesting sector. Let's agree to disagree on that on the touch. All you want the only problem with the hour. Drive Your Fox Body for anything in the world man. That's why I bought a lightning buddy. I'm just settled all right so you. The the Audi the Audi like the sensational any problem is one hundred fifteen grand yeah and there's GonNa be a few options yeah by all right but there's not going to be many on the road and it is going to be kind of a NICI thing and especially in this town. Do you want something that's special that's kind of unique and it's not the Super Bright Lime Green g wagon on the giant forty inch tires like you know Yeah Kalfa me right yeah family anyway uh-huh what else false we're going to have their little. Id Three which is in the ground they had the Gulf but this is the first ground up electric car. That's not coming to the US but we are getting SUV version probably next year call the probably GonNa be called the ID four put on base on their platform the electric platform so they basically from the ground up said we're going to build a range of vehicles on these kind of underpinnings and it's been designed. spoke spoke to be electric making a big push around that so it was it was interesting to be really important for vw in you you know in Europe and here the version here. This is a somewhat. Let's let's call it affordable. Electric Vehicle coming from Volkswagen looks like they were trying to make it big play that you know we did the the people's car in the beetle and this is the next people's car. I think I might be overstating it but you know they've even redesigned the Volkswagen box that trying move on from diesel gate. This is a new company inverted commas and they got on the shameless plug coming on Friday. We have a video coming out which is a big roundup. Oh Frankfurt so check that out in the on Edmunds dot com slash road noise okay and all right. So what else did you like at Frankfurt. There was the Lamborghini Syon. She's these hybrid with super capacitors. We talked a little bit about this last week. We were talking about out the capacitors in in sort of replacing the conventional battery although what's your vehicles for so new gets the conventional battery now we're done with the battery. Let's go to capacitors. They're fast charging. They expelled their energy very quickly but it still oh has lamborghini basically door type car stupid money so it's going to have to have a giant engine in it and it's it's an interesting solution for Super Guy a few years ago I drove the nine eleven. Gt three rice call by the hybrid gt three all hybrid a hybrid system in it enables that he was the flywheel which will yeah formula developed that this race call with these flywheel literally where the passenger seat it'd be a nine hundred eleven seems incredibly dangerous either like they're like no. It's going to be fine. This is never going to come apart and they race in the twenty four hour Newburgh. This was all about US collectively electing the energy keeping this thing spinning and then deploying it and in some ways the lamborghinis not not dissimilar so you not charging it up and it sitting in a battery days. This is all about short shot hips doc celebration and improving efficiency it also look I mean the problem with McCain is and they do now. They make all the money from the special editions and this one. I actually Kinda liked it. It was pretty cool pretty good color choice like in the photos had sort of a more of an army greenish kind of but not matt. I don't think it was mad. I think it was a shiny as a sort of Kalki killer and yeah I liked it. I mean it's I get a bit bored of it. After a while you know you just like another Lamborghini specialization but I know that sounds silly but it's kind of an RND. This is a play for them. This trickle down like does Audi and Volkswagen eventually use capacitors for something instead of all all batteries or some combination of it. It's gotTA BE Super. Expensive says the only way to do it is a three million dollar Lamborghini that they're gonNa make twenty over ten knows what Lamborghinis Lamborghini is less than a hundred definitely but yeah I can see this coming. Everybody has to adjust to the kind of new world and this is an an interesting way of doing it. You know you could see coming onto something like a Audi r eight or something like that in the future yeah trickle dominates. No you're not gonNA find on. We still haven't already yeah we do okay. My neighbor has one. Actually you wake up every morning yeah. I'm sure the baby loves I love it. It's kind of like subliminal subliminal. You're like Oh. I like that. Maybe it's like I don't know feed me okay. What else is going on at at Frankfurt or now that we're getting after Frankfort happened? We're going to start rolling. You know we got sema show coming up but then. La Auto show is La auto show is going to be you know I mean fewer and fewer I guess debuts are happening at these do things especially in the higher end brands. Were starting to see I mean you you mentioned Lamborghini of course we're we're seeing the BMW eight fifty goto quail for the first first time and we're starting to see you know Bentley's Gt end up at at a media preview or pebble beach instead of L. A. Auto show you know stuff. I like that I think is actually getting pretty. If you are going to be there but I'm I'm kind of There's a there's a handful of things that I kind of know about which we about to get close to. La is going to be pretty big this year. I mean this is a huge busy time. I was looking at like wear all guys all this this. We we have people in Australia. We have two people in Europe drives you down on the AMEX staff half. We have somebody on the on the Moab the garage two why AM I. Why am I saying you're sitting here so we have? We have people all over the place. That is a huge time Alana. This show was driving another film. That's out right now. He's the escape film before the scape she came but yeah pretty impressed with the design is influenced by the Ford. Gt and then I winter and I was like what what part this little silver bit on the phone. I was like Oh yeah it really screams for gt when you guys think of the of the escape vehicle for them. It's a it's replacing the small sedan right hugely important vehicle when you think a raffle sells four hundred thousand a year see Avi. He's not too far behind and Ford's traditionally struggled in that market last escape. We didn't think much oliver neither the conceive not too. Many people bought it. It's an interesting because it's not it's almost like a kind of a true crossover in that. It's Kinda Half Half Sadan half SUV. It's not too overtly SUV so yeah I mean I think it's come back pretty pretty impressed by okay. We'll bring it in for a group test and put it against the vs and stuff but it's a big vehicle for Ford and you know when you look at the market now what afford I she didn't this. This has to work for them because the CO sport is is is about nothing so this becomes absolutely critical they can't just keep selling trucks for forever and a day and you look at somebody like Toyota and the breadth of their range and just how many vehicle they covering all the bases and forty is making a pretty big bet that you build truck she billed as she vs and like when you his commitment to stop doing cars in the small cars you you've got a head. You've gotta hit it out of the park with your small all us. Uv You do and I think the problem is from a communication point of view saying you stop people don't in the consciousness think about our research shows people don't think about calls. SUV's and every thing by those teams SUV's a call so when you came out and said we're not doing cars ause if he's like what what what what do you that much different. We're making the same thing but it late Soleil yeah. That's really about it and that's kind of what the escape is right yeah yeah that's really a focus with a little bit of a lift gate on it but it but look our roads. Just keep getting worse and worse. Nobody's he's fixing those things so why not get a little bit more clearance and a little more suspension travel makes us hearing something the other day that calls a now design full China First America second and then Europe after that yeah which is fine if you live in China and or the American because he's just getting bigger and bigger and particularly wider and wider but you know the scale of cars. There's no you know if you if you got a Europe now with roads and narrow. It's a nightmare over here. We're just GONNA have to accept city planning and everything how's that causes getting smaller yeah all right anything else. Go down there always so much going on ticon tycoon.

Though you know yeah I a purist by any stretch imagination as much as I'd like to be in the Porsche area but it seems to me that this is one of the last ones that the purists are docking over Why I I don't know but that was for you can tell me that's probably air cool versus liquid cool yeah? It's kind of kind of the end of the air cooled nine nine three which is the one after bill's car. That's yeah that was the last of the cooled and that's why you buy it because he was at the end of an era and the end of the essence of nine eleven but we should dance your friends question. We've forgotten all about about it. Okay yes so the question was the new nine eleven. I haven't driven it yet. We've seen that the auto show you've you've had some time with it now and your staff has as well so the question is off all of your people all of your Oliver People Right. Haven't they driven it yeah. You're you're people yeah yeah your staff yeah. I don't know why it was so funny. Like you have a staff way anyway. We have thirty four people in the same Edmund it. We got Chris. We've got Chris you've got thirty. Four people okay all right so new nine eleven they don't make an a target but they make a coupe and a convertible. Okay does Tyson go for the Targa or is the new which is last year's I guess or is the new nine eleven good enough that he should just get the new nine eleven whether it be coupe or convertible or whatever so I'm GonNa Answer some roundabout way if you if I was buying one like a new nine eleven now yeah I would buy what they call a nine nine one point one which is the first generation nine which is the last generation last body shape of the nine eleven to two on the one that's effectively still on sale as a target but but before they went to the turbo engine so nine one point one which is a last naturally aspirated okay if you can get a GTS stick nine nine one point one fabulous Populus but let's say there's not on the lots and you're GONNA go out and lease a car. That's right okay safe leasing new. I think he's personal preference nine to the new. One is a much nicer interior. That's the big change yeah. the interior is is is terrific an an a step forward and they will do talk about a year away right I would say look at the deal because they might find that nine to literally hitting showrooms about now so those there'll be no deals on the nine to maybe the dealers go to bunched Utah Nine. I won't talk as and stuff lying around. Maybe maybe there's a deal to be done so I I would look at what the economics comics look like but you not going to buy the Dogar and feel like it's you're you're. You're driving a car. It's still fabulous thing new on great interior terrier run but again he's also the price hike as well. I mean we the call we drove the nine to choose a Carreira s coupe with options that you would want nothing really on it that you would say. That's a bit superfluous. If one hundred and forty GRANDPA said it's got to be a hundred and forty eight hundred fifty 'cause we were talking earlier but there's a lot of stuff with Porsche that you want so radio radio staring. That's terribly again. Just from general maneuverability you know the the whole Sport Tronoh the righted suspension with just a dime for something else all these things actually. I think that you would want the big thing you know. A lot of the press caused the test of all the time have they Stefani because police you want to show the car off such a quite hard to get hold of a kind of bog standard hundred Jordan fifteen thousand nine eleven exists caress yeah first of all portion sell those. They want you to load up like you said it's all it's all so. Is there any real L. discernible difference between the new one nine nine two in the previous when he said the interior nicer is is there any real comfort driveability ability is is it. It's it's I mean. It's like a little nine eleven's. It's a it's an evolution obviously the stylings different particularly the rear That's a bit of a there's nothing that stands out. There's nothing you said Oh listen the previous one the one thing that bugged us every day. Was this or this or this and it just never really we had that I mean it's not really common with Porsche nine. Seven there was issues with the engine you sake by the engine but if but not really I mean it's an evolution the engines to the engine was kind of like carryover and things like that so and particularly if using things like apple carplay one of the things that dates pretty quickly now as a whole infotainment and bushes right it all of this but but if you get it plug in your iphone and use Copley something that doesn't bother you either yeah all right so you either you either are in love with the new interior or you're not or you go for the best deal and those are pretty much only to deciding factor is the one that you want if you fall in love with a dog and I agree. I mean the talker odds white while you don't want it but everything's everything's fine but it's funny and it looks good and it's kind of like to talk yeah. It's it's a cool car was just driving. What I was not driving is driving next one on the way here and I was just like title Ix Sharp Yeah Yeah and I love the rear glass it just it's so much more visibility and that's a lot of curve?

Gt in that it's not a Bentley or even like a nine eleven to buy some outcome on the nine eleven gt's but it's it's it's still essentially a mid engined supercar with a slightly bigger trunk and I think you're going to clarify exactly what and I thought any but if McLaren had just come out in my in my view McLaren had just come out and said what we're going to build a supercar with a big trunk that you can actually use for like a week way yeah then I think people said Okay I get that the fact that they've come out and said this is a you know a mdjt or wrap Bentley continental rival just sort of muddies the muddies the waters a bit and it's just not that car okay so what what's the problem the naming convention mentioned you're you're expecting a grand touring car Allah Continental. Gt Bentley or or are you expecting more are from the car like let's let's say it wasn't called the McLaren. Gt doesn't sound as if it's classified as true gt so so it's false advertising. It's Ki- it's kind of like another McLaren. I mean the problem mccaren Harvey's though wedded to this idea that you have a carbon monocoque mid engined and supercar so anything around that is a nuance you know they're not GonNa do an SUV affront Njit so what they've done is. How can we squeezed another car out of there so let's make a bit bigger? Let's have a cellphone. Let's have a big trunk. Make it a bit more usable and you know it's it's still gotta get really down into the car. It's still pretty compromised in some ways. It is a supercar with a big trunk. It's in order. Tour mcclair loves lightweight and they didn't want to call this a McLaren five seventy heavy exactly I live I live the league t gt either that's just got a slightly different different trump so yeah. It's the first they've done in a while while they are actually getting you you know some some negative kickback on it and this is based off of what like six fifty five seventy were. What does this sort of? This is based off the five uh it's five seven. Do you know what I can't remember because it's different between the five seventy in the seven twenty and I can't remember exactly seven twenty because the seven twenty years he's twice the cost of and so I think they have to base it all on the seven twenty. Has You know whatever the dynamic the sway bar system like. It doesn't have sway bars. It has like hydraulics or something to talk BITs universal between the two resigned wide and also the only though no this has a different carbon tub to the to the function of bit more expensive but the other thing about these. Gt Is it's only a two seater now. We all know that you can't really well you. Might you might get mad in the back of nine eleven but you're going to get better you call them. You constantly the one thing about what happens in nine eleven if you go away for we throw the bags in the back. McLaren hasn't got that so you know it's not that's another thing that could possibly be like a true. Gt without even have like the little tiny jump seats in the back like nine eleven or or a handful of the sports sports cars that are out there doing that okay so let's take gt away from it and then where does this fall in the McLaren lineup is this. Is this the car you want if you want maybe but more leather or better stereo or more trunk space says it is it. Is it more luxurious does it does it have an audience or or do you just skip the GT and get the five seventy six fifty year. I I have a lot to do with them decision. Yeah I mean I think you look at these car and again it sitting sitting them between five seventy seven twenties as and stuff. I think you look at this because this car starts at like to some too long. It's on the lower end of seven seven twenty twenty. You're going to spend four hundred thousand dollars exactly so it's between the two it's it's a bit more usable than a than a five seventy but a lot not a lot more I mean and this is a problem who is who is going to buy you buy it because you think maybe if you're gonNA use the everyday then but who does that. You know maybe saying Gee. I ain't gonNA try and use this every day. It makes it makes sense but it's a bit neither Fisher file. It doesn't really doesn't really deliver on its promise yeah okay. Let's stay along the lines of anticipation. How about the new Porsche the tight on? Do you know what I was supposed supposed to be driving it literally today and then I just go visit the office staff.

"Most capable off roading of anything in their line up right now and that seemed to be a big selling point and built your cheer point like your brother other you guys go out and thrash this thing around but it's not his only vehicle. It's not as daily driver. It's not like this is known. He uses it for what it was built for right and he's very fortunate that you know that's that's the case but I think it's it's a it's a capable all around vehicle to where you could you know be a a millennial and drive it out on the weekends and four wheel and do your thing and then you know during the week dependent upon where you live you could use it as as a commuter. I I speak. I speak Nagai Cost Truth Stewart Frith. Who is the chief engineer on defender and I mean he expecting to talk it up but part of the rim for these vehicles it needed to be the best off road yeah so they've got huge high expectations for the fact that they've been able to develop a whole new platform for it helps with that so they are talking wrangler g wagon and I want to be the best off road so there's some pretty interesting test of it coming up in the next year okay so when do nothing but help the consumer because I mean if if if that's the case then then look at the look at that sector right now I mean look at what gladiators doing look at what everybody's doing off-road? I mean they're definitely up in the game and I build your point. I think personalization is a key factor like you don't. You don't realize how many of these car companies are are making so many of these options available. I mean we don't really think about it too much but go through the options list like go to Porsche and build ah nine eleven on their on their website and you know you can you can load up at nine eleven and four minutes and then we'll take you forty minutes ago through all of the different for an options that you could possibly do and like you're saying like gladiator and some of these vehicles out there it sounds like part of the appeal is going to be all the possible different configurations. You can get a look at look at who you're dealing with looking at the generation you're dealing with you know it's a it's a generation of interaction and and so you know giving them the ability to do anything and everything whether it'd be covered choice whether it be a configuration of the Interior I mean my God that it was. You don't have that as an option now. You're you'RE GONNA suffer. I guarantee you. It's also where the margin is. I mean Paul. She makes without getting too sort of financial talk about this. They pull she makes about twenty percent return. It's one of the most profitable car theft Ferrari actually and and almost all of that comes from options have have you by nine eleven. You're adding twenty thirty thousand dollars options. That's pretty much all margin yeah and like to see what the average option price is on Said said car yeah it's about twenty ground on nine eleven at the moment for when you load it up yeah I vice versus the MS L. P. I put one together together for a friend yesterday and especially when you go through the options list Porsche and you realize how expensive everything a- and you're taking four minutes to build one but it'll take you four lifetimes to pay for it right yeah I was I put together like a nine nine eleven nine eleven and without going crazy with the carbon fiber bids and the carbon fiber roof and all that stuff and it was still like thirty or thirty two thousand dollars of options on that thing so and it's funny because maybe some people will use the defender as it's intended needed to be used but they are still counting on a lot of let's say the Beverly Hills audience to purchase that vehicle and and enroll around town with it and I'll tell you what personalization in the hills of beverly are equally as important as it would be to the functional a a upgrades and options. You'd put on that thing if you were using it as more of a utility vehicle I mean your roll out. I have to correct thank you and say you're wrong. I'd say that it's more important because you see all those people drive around g wagons. Tell me that they all need to be in four wheel. Drive the whole all right right it is much more important for them than function by far. We're definitely going to pull up in front of Mastro's in Beverly Hills and there's going to be a defender with a Snorkel Fisher. The guy's not even GonNa know what it is now but it looks goal when you look at what they've done the discovery going back to the two thousand thousand two discovery. Remember that four over here the the first utilitarian one that was gonna be called defender and then they bottled it so they had had this vision. If you remember that vehicle was super utilitarian you went inside. It was all quite plastic box that was supposed to be the new defender and then bottled at the last minute and called the L. Four discovery fast forward to today and they've made the discovery of it kind of more softer not supposed to be like the family choice and defender is now supposed to be the kind of Alpha so they moved the discovery into being a bit softer all this into seller over here and then make room for the defendant to be this kind of like tough sort of Goldberg Berg USC Vehicle Yeah Okay thank you all right. I'll take some marketing Stephanie. It's all about you know the Alpha Alfred but you beat up and gets up for more and I just thought they basically you bill okay so you you haven't tried it yet. You have you won't be able to drive it for a little while but you've driven every other Land Rover in the lineup just based on that and what you've seen of the vehicle are you in. Are you out what what's the verdict on defender when I initially saw the pitches as I'm not sure when I went to Frankfurt when I spent some time with that took some of the engineers. I'll wait to drive to be definitive but I think I'm in I mean I love the I love. You've seen what's on paper you like it. While I love the rang. A G G Watkins silly money into kind of like fashion accessory for my taste wrangler is great but a little bit to kind of rough and ready and places this this could be a really nice happy medium. They get the lease rates right and things like that. Yeah I mean this is again. I liked the idea of personalizing. I liked the idea of vehicle. That's a little bit more kind of. Have you know obviously well of. Course you know you've got that tough accent. We've got we've got a new sponsor. I want to tell you guys about this is i. I'm looking at this ad so I'm GonNa I might I might stumble through it but I Would Tell You Guys About Zorro if you guys purchase.

"Where do you WanNa Start Frankfort Frankford yeah? How was that show? I've never been it's I mean frank in Europe you get two big shows a year yet. Geneva in March and then in September October Paris alternates we Frankford every year this year older shows little people were missing but it was still a a big advantage geographically huge something like three miles from from one end of the show to the other the literally is it the biggest autoshow or compared to here L. A. Detroit New York. What what's now the biggest auto show? Do you think geographically in terms of square footage. What is Frankfurt in terms of attendance in terms of attendance? I mean obviously you got the difference between the media attendance and then the public attendance I mean I mean if you look at the world now. Frankfurt is right up there Frankfurt Geneva Detroit Waning Detroit's candidate. Mary can show now global show. LA's arguably on the rise because that's where the money is and whether the whether Mulcahy's particular you look brand New York does okay but they are then Shanghai in China Tokyo is not really happening in the the same way anymore so but I thought maybe has downsized a little but maybe not in the public way but as far as as far as manufacturers like Ferrari doesn't go there anymore like all the exotics like Aston Martin and stuff. They're all like represented by ALPA like Galvin silver a room appear GALP and motors. We have Calvin Ford they have asked Martin they have a bunch of dealers. They kinda like take over and represent for all of the. I don't think Ferrari's been there in years. It's the bit it depends on. What also people have got you know launching and it's kind of interesting is look Jaguar Landrover that moment doesn't you know is having a tough time? Globally sales down prophets are non existent at the moment and they always said we're not gonNA launch your car at an auto show ever again. You WanNa create our own buzzer annoys when they hit our times that he lost the defender at Frankford apologized got everybody that you know global media flies in as I did. I must let you on the ground in in your thirty six hours which was kind of crazy but also you go to bake alleged public going going through and there was the defender finally finally revealed after years of I mean it's the first all new defenses what nine forty eight eighty two we've been talking about this for years okay so the the defender is interesting because like you said it's it's wildly popular. It's a fan Dan favorite. You're starting to see them. Show up at at car auctions all around the world are starting to pull some good money. Never changed changed whereas I don't know the g wagon has changed a little bit and I hate that God damn thing by the way I kind of like watch your language allister's. Sorry sorry buddy. I hate that fricking thing the bloody thing probably expert okay. I don't know I don't know I guess what bloodies okay okay. Blood is okay for a guy who's been in the ring so many act guys handcuff me over here but I okay what are your impressions of the defender. What what do we know we know there was a four door to probably a handful of different variations of it is it? Is it good to we want it. We like it. Does the Land Rover need it desperately need. That's for sure it was interesting. They said we get shots footage of these things under embargo well ahead of the the unveil so that we can start to prepare the content and stuff and these pitches arrived in the office and we all gathered around look today and he looked really soft and toilet and we really appointed and yet when we went to Frankford she had a look at it in the metal and you start to see the scale of it it it achieved so much better so and part of the problem was you see this with a lot of brands now you be in this world of Photoshop and everything else the photographs get so retouched with Sosa Kinda they look like CGI yeah and this thing just ended up looking really soft soft but when you see images of out in the desert covered into doing what a defender shirt it looks so much better and she when you see it in real life the you know the proportions windscale of the vehicle and interesting I had a I look at about five years ago in a new back in the UK and then there was would he be sort of on the Range Rover sport or range of platform and I was kind of expecting it to be eighty thousand dollars plus an actually because they build a new factory in Slovakia. They've been able to develop a whole new platform this vehicle and he's going to be sort of fifty to eighty thousand dollars now. What do you think that we bought on the on the Edmonds Fleet was just over sixty for a rubicon because it's going to be a little bit more than a than a wrangler but a g wagon these water one hundred thirty one hundred and fifty so it's an interesting place in the market and and I like it I am the the the two door is the one that looks the coolest but like the wrong? It looks coolest. Everybody's GonNa talk about that but I think people will buy the full door and the some really recall details as well that you can get in the front line defenders. You actually get three people and there's a little patchy seat in the middle which is kind of Nice on the on the three so you can have the three door sorta to door to door where we can see six all you can have a folder which can seat seven so there's a lot of flexibility likes ability. There's probably a truck somewhere down the line I think it's going to be on sale. We're GONNA drive it next year. It'll be at the Elliott Osho this November. What's the you know? The power plant over here will be will be gas. There will probably be in time plug in plug in hybrid so the three liter sakes that they have in yeah having the rest of the rest of their range but they've actually I think bringing it. This price point and I sit on the ground is kind of surprised that it was the more and I kind of got a few so that worried glances novus it'd be unloaded until debate how you pitch this seeing the pictures of this yet the new the the defender to know what's interesting because it the timing of this might be good with a Bronco coming out and that's so highly highly anticipated that maybe landrover sort of beating them to the punch by having by having the defender out there I I was gonna say the defender could probably be the luxury version of the Bronco coming out but I don't know in that price range that you're talking about I don't I don't. I don't know that it's that much more broncos product you what you asked me. That's a fantastic idea because if it wasn't near that try range that market would not have even considered it before. Braga is a competitor that's right now. They're going to have a range of options to trick etc cannot snorkels and everything else and so they'll be ways of scaling up but when he thing won't pay me as soon as you got a few more power base to jeep or something you easily get there and this is you. It's new it's different. There's probably GonNa be let's say a ten thousand dollar difference between the defender and the Bronco. Let's say look at years back when the when the defender came out you know only the only the rich and famous were driving them much yeah and I think it'd be interesting over here yeah because oversee particularly in the UK or in Europe defenders beat on sale up until a couple of years ago I owned image for for showtime and how many it's it's always been a bit of a car over here here. Of course it's either wealthy people in Venice Beach California joking around in the money. It's it's a different crowd. It'd be interesting to see how much Kapila they can. They can generate because they doesn't have the awareness that it does in Europe right like they're starting to show up at at our M gooding auctions. They're not they're not showing up on US his car lots defenders are starting to get up there and maybe the clientele the more affluent ownership out here in the US might have to do with the the cost of ownership. I can't imagine it's inexpensive to keep that thing running in top condition all the time it might be a little fidgety for lack of better word. I think by them changing the price point they opened up a completely different sector. I think it's going to change the change the taking the identity of them. I think I mean for the better he asked me. Yeah interesting talking to you guys because you guys says a fashion accessory over here in Europe well we do and we don't my brothers had one for fifteen years. We drive the dog crap out making so as far as you know for him. It's not a fashion accessory but for the most was part yes you're you're correct but you know for the purists that take it out and do what it's it's. It's it's built to do you know they they love that vehicle go on now it's GonNa Oakland that up that vehicle up to a whole different sector you know what that price and in the UK even up until the final days it was although it became a bit trendy it was still the choice of the former you know it was a utilitarian tool used on farms particularly in the UK but also across Europe so they need to try and keep ah I mean that audience he's not particularly Welzer by this vehicle. Yes you can have things like hose out interiors and the but it's not so much here. WE'RE NOT GONNA get a super stripped-down models. It just doesn't seem like that's that's the audience out here. Plus Land Rover is trying to be still more of a luxury brand in the US than it is to be sort of the all encompassing brand. Maybe it is in other parts of the world. I think what they're after is is is bill describing so somebody with the county can have like a rubber verizon interior that you can wash out and things like that and so it's it's people who they want to use the vehicle but it's people who also want to be comfortable when they drive it on the road and everything else 'cause I've done thousands of miles in the defender and trust me. It's not comfortable and there's no place that has been but it's worthy but it's but you put yourself through it because it's such a cool and capable vehicle yeah. It's the sort of thing that you buy because you think this is going to be so cool then then you after about a thousand miles of driving audrey realizes the really bad right like bill like you say about the g wagon birthright the defender you're looking on it. It's supposed to have of the the.

"Berlin while still easily the biggest city in germany has only the fourth and seventh busiest airports which combined have only about half the traffic of frankfurt germany's the only european country were the country's main air hub is not on the largest city so you can sort of see the unusualness of the german situation so if division had happened it would be very difficult to belief the germany's main air hub today wouldn't be in berlin the air traffic stories compelling because the data are so definitive in other cases it's hard for an economist like sturm to make such a clean comparison between cities but he argues the anecdotal evidence at least suggests that the air traffic data are part of a larger economic pattern if you look at for example at munich both 'alliance of germany's biggest insurance company and siemens its biggest manufacturing conglomerate moved to munich in response to division similarly the banking sector you know left berlin and migrated to frankfurt with prior to the war was sort of a secondary banking center similarly publishing when to hamburg and we can continue in this way in other words one indirect consequence of the war and the resultant political division was it the german economy became more decentralised germany has a very unusual economic geography or he is very unusual distribution of economic activity in space too much more decentralised country then some other european countries such as uk or france or or even spain were economic activity seems to be highly agglomerated in one or two leading centers in contrast in germany you have a number of sort of midsize towns that have very vibrant economic structures such as munich frankfurt.
