This is a huge conference going on there too with a bunch of podcasting sessions going on as part of that event too.

Well, I did the flip over for years until I said forget it. So at some point you'll say, okay, let's give it a try. You do it over. You do it over a three or four week time period when no one can see you. Right. Just go high and tight once. The fancy hair transplant surgery in turkey. No. No, no, no. I'm not that vain.

"Only. Yeah, yeah, yeah. You want the big screen. You want to see it on the big screen. All right. I think we're good. I think we should move on. Anything that I missed. Oh, I did miss a big one. Holy crumbly. Did you talk about this? Amazon buying one medical? We did not talk about it. We did not listen. Because it's not a Google story. Oh, come on. It's a big story. Amazon's story, but Amazon created their own kind of healthcare solution, which they said, oh, no, don't worry, it's just for our employees. Now with a $3.9 billion acquisition of a primary care provider, one medical I think is pretty clear, you know, they bought pill pack so they have Amazon pharmacy, a sponsor. They have this is a big deal. They can fix something to fix healthcare. Hallelujah. Well, do you think they would fix it or would they just make it expensive or worse or? No, I'm in a practice here on the largest one of the east coast and it's a factory now. It's just awful. You can't get anything. That's what they've all turned into. Totally with the ball turned into. And it's the insurance problem, right? Insurance is cutting back on the amount of money that they can collect. It hits everything. Yeah. In fact, because of that, I've considered as a lot of people with deep pockets have. Maybe paying out of pocket for concierge medical and I was told, oh, one medical is the one. They're out of San Francisco. They're in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, LA, New York, Washington, D.C., they're a this is according to The Washington Post to subscription based primary care provider that leans into technology to build what it calls quote a seamless combination of in person, digital and virtual care services that are convenient to where people work shop and live. You pay this is most insurance is accepted. Well, but you pay an additional fee an annual fee of a $199. Oh, well, which isn't bad. I think we're rapidly headed, I mean, we got a mess. This is privilege also it's privileged. The rich people can. So that's the question. Does Amazon Amazon for profit entity? They're not interested in making healthcare more universal more affordable. They're interested. It might be interested in making it more accessible to their workers. In a way that might be kind of coercive or you would worry that could be coercive. Instead of a union is what you're saying. Either instead of a union or get treated by our doctors, but their doctors may be interested if you've got an RSI from working at the Amazon warehouse, maybe they're like, do this. Yes. We have all the data. We have all this data on how to improve this through this first, and then if that doesn't work, maybe they fire you, and then you lose your healthcare. I don't know. Amazon also, though, has kind of acted like it wants to get into the healthcare business. It built Amazon care, which was in it, as I said, initially for employees only. They bought health navigator. They bought pill pack. And now, when medical, I feel like they may have to be more than just employees. No, they have a total interest in this space. One, because they're a huge employer. But two, I don't think they're like the U.S. healthcare system allows middlemen to profit exorbitantly. And it would be silly not to take advantage of that. The king of the middlemen, Amazon, right. Yeah. It says here, we're an employee benefit for 8000 companies, including Airbnb, all birds, NASDAQ and Google. Interesting. Wouldn't it be funny if Amazon ran Google self care? A lot of information in there. What does HIPAA protect? If you own one medical, do you have access to the medical information of all the customers? On an individual basis, I don't think so. No, I mean, aren't you protected there? I would hope. You obviously don't have the data because you're serving the people, but what you do with it is the question. Well, you would have data like X number, and it could be de anonymized kind of like, you would have X percentage of people have this kind of cost associate have C sections every year. So in your practice, you've got 20 C sections. The rarer your treatment, the more likely you are to be. The anonymized, right? Final stories for rich folks. Yeah. A lot of concierge physicians, right? Yeah. Final story, we now know the reason all that luggage is being lost. It's black suitcases. If you just didn't have a black suitcase, the head of the man, the head of the Frankfurt airport, one of the biggest hub airports in the world, according to The Guardian, Stefan schulte, advised passengers, hand carry or belongings when possible and use suitcases that are easy to spot. Black suitcases are so common, it's hard to distinguish them from each other. He told The Guardian, many people travel with black suitcases on wheels, which makes identifying them very time intensive. Not the fact that you fired 4000 people during the pandemic and you haven't been able to rehire more than a quarter of that, not that. Not staff shortages. Black suitcases. Stacy, what color is your luggage? I have a gold tooth. I knew you did. And a pig suitcase. In the green suitcase. But my husband has two black suitcases. Yeah, me too. And he gets really offended when I suggest he Carrie would have bite. There are companies that sell accoutrements for suitcases. So you can easily distinguish your black suitcase. Maybe that's what you should do for your house. Can I tell you how many stupid black suitcases with bright rainbow ribbons I saw? I know. I know.

"All around the world. It's time to talk business now with Isabel Hamilton, whose senior tech reporter at Business Insider good morning to you Isabel. Good morning. Now German tourists have been told to use colorful luggage. Why is this? Yeah, this is the head of Frankfurt airport. He's told people to use colorful luggage because he says that so many people have black wheelie suitcases and it makes it kind of slower to identify them and at the minute with all the travel chaos that's going on. He says that in like a time pressured situation it can help to have a more distinctive piece of luggage. But it's still going to get lost, whether it's pink or black. I'm not sure the comments have been met with a huge amount of credibility, especially because the reason they're getting lost isn't because they're black and he doesn't really make it clear in his statement whether or not the quickness of identifying suitcase is down to the person who owns it or the person who's sorting it. So yeah, I think it's safe to say this won't solve the problems with luggage getting lost. And there are mountains of it. I mean, they're saying thousands and thousands of cases. Yeah, The Guardian reported that Frankfurt had something like 2000 pieces of luggage stranded in its airport. So it is getting quite mountainous. So clearly the answer travel with hand luggage only. Yes, that would be the best advice is just to take hand luggage. Obviously not an option for everyone, but if you can, just are on the side of caution. Yeah. Now, let's have a look at this Google story because a little while ago, one of their engineers said that he thought that their AI chat bot was sentient. What happens since then? He has been fired as of Friday. So this is a man called Blake lemoyne, who was working in Google's ethical AI division and he became convinced that an AI chat bot had gained sentience. He characterized it as being on the level of about a 7 or 8 year old and that was in June and now he's been fired. So he's been sort of on leave for quite a while and he's been quite active talking to the press in that time and Google said in a statement that he has persistently broken company policy and that's why they've let them go. Company policy I was speaking to the press. They didn't say speaking to the press, it was to do with discussing internal products, but they didn't sort of put a label on it to be honest. They just said he was breaking persistently breaking companies policy. And they have also completely denied that this AI bot is sentient. Yes, and not just Google, pretty much every expert out there has said that this doesn't meet any threshold for determining sentence in any sort of framework that exists, not that there's a perfect one out there, but no one's convinced to be honest apart from lemoyne. Let's move on to Bill Gates, who is always on the rich list, but he's planning to exit it. He doesn't want to be on one of the world's richest people. Yes, he announced this, he announced, I think, last week that he plans to gradually slip down the list and eventually come off it. And he's given away 6 billion in shares as of yesterday, I believe. Which have gone to his charitable foundation, the bill and gates, the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. So they're not sort of completely out of his reach, per se, but the idea being he moves the wealth out of his personal funds to his charitable foundation, which then spends billions over years. On what various yeah, I mean, famously vaccination programs, developing different medicines, trying to help develop logistics infrastructure and places, for example, in African countries where it's difficult to move around vaccines in things like refrigerated trucks. So yeah. Excellent. Thank you very much. That was a lovely to speak to you. Isabel Hamilton. This is the globalist on monocle 24.

"I didn't mean to leave you off at the beginning. Take care of you guys. Have a good day. Bye. All right. Jan, you are the man. Great. It was so nice to be back. Thank you. Yeah, to get caught up with what's been happening. And this is going to be helpful for other people out there and encouraging, I think, for others who are wondering, um, I'm not sure I have enough time left to make it worth it. But I think that Dan made the decision that, yeah, even though he's 54, we still have more than ten years. And who knows? Maybe even more. By the time the FAA starts extending, again, the maximum retirement age or if and when that happens. So great to hear from you. Yeah, absolutely. I'm looking forward to your upcoming installment. So I'm curious to hear how a training goes and how you I know you're going to continue to enjoy it. So that's going to be really interesting to follow along with. Thanks. I agree. Okay. We're going to knock out a couple of two, three more, and call it a show. And I'd like to do number 7 from Robert in Tucker, Georgia. Previously of south of the big chicken in Meredith. He said, this was an interesting story to me, apologies if you've already covered it, and I don't believe we have, actually. And he sent us a link the first 7 47 to Frankfurt, FRA, was a complete surprise, a visual history of the world's great airports. And on Wednesday, we're not going to read the whole thing here, but let me just read a little bit of it. Wednesday, January 28th, 1970, the wide body era at Frankfurt started rather unexpectedly with the arrival of a diverted Pan Am 7 47. Pan American world airways Boeing 7 47 one two 1 November 737 papa alpha clipper red jacket had been underway from New York's Kennedy airport to London Heathrow. Scheduled Boeing 7 47 service on the JFK Heathrow route had only commenced a few days prior on Thursday, January 22nd. It was the first route on which Pan Am had deployed the 7 47 and it was the world's first scheduled 7 47 service. That day, the 362 seat aircraft carried 177 passengers, and a crew of 21, among which 5 cockpit crew on the controls of flight two was veteran pilot captain just tranter, part of Pan Am's elite team of 7 47 qualified pilots, who also piloted the 7 47 on the test flight to Heathrow on January 11. That morning, London was completely fogged in, visibility was down to only 50 meters, thus captain trantor, decided to divert to Frankfurt's Rhine main airport, where Pan Am had a major base, and which was the airline's main alternate for London. News about the upcoming arrival of the jumbo jet spread around Frankfurt airport, like wildfire, and anyone who could interrupted their work to witness the arrival of what the airport press release referred to as the flying cinema, presumably because the 7 47 featured movie screens, a novelty at the time. The plane touched down, Frankfurt airport at 8 36 a.m. that morning. After landing the 747 was guided by two follow me vehicles to gate B 46 at Frankfurt's brand new terminal meta, which was still largely under construction. Terminal mita was designed for the 7 47 and B 46 was one of several gates at Frankfurt that could connect three passenger boarding bridges to the 7 47 two on the port side and one on the starboard side. According to the press release, two boarding bridges were sufficient to allow the 177 passengers and 21 crew to disembark. Lord mayor of Frankfurt professor doctor Willie runder was rushed to the airport for an improvised welcome and gave captain tranter and his crew and illustrated book about Frankfurt airport. Many hundreds of airport and airline employees as well as construction workers working on terminal minta came by on foot or by airport vehicle to admire the gigantic jet. The airport press release specifically mentioned that ramp supervisors were not amused by all the vehicles cluttering the ramp. The aircraft was parked at the terminal for about 5 hours, providing ground crews of golden opportunity to practice their new procedures for the 7 47. So it turns out that I think that the 7 47 was going to be going to Frankfurt for regularly scheduled service, but not until a little bit later. I forgot exactly how long after this chance encounter with the unexpected encounter with the 7 47, but I believe it wasn't, let's see. April 5th, 1970. April 5th. And this happened in January. I also have several months before they were supposed to see this airplane. That's pretty cool. Volkswagen's on the ramp. Look at all those Volkswagens on the ramp list. Definitely a lot of clutter happening there on the ramp a lot of things. And people standing around. Look at all the people on the observation deck there too. Hi. Yeah, 'cause, you know, this was the first jumbo jet. I mean, there was nothing else like it at the time. So it was quite a spectacle, I think. Yeah, they definitely need a thorough walk around after they're getting ready to yeah. What if they threw anything in the engines? There were a lot of people leaving a lot of walking around that day. Just nobody qualified really to do it. All right. Anything else? Shall we move on? Yeah. Okay, let's move on. So that's a cool story though. I love all the old.

"That, but I was so done. Being there. Then I was like, yeah, yeah, I got it. And I hung up and just threw the door open. And how did I feel in that moment? I don't think there's a word for it. I think of words like exuberant or joyous and they sound so hollow compared to what I felt. It's literally like these strangers are here to give you your life back, everything. Your people that you love, your Sunday morning sitting in a park, listening to the birds trip, everything that you experience from this day forward is because these type of people gave it back to you. And you don't know them. And so how bizarre that they're here to do that for you. So it was the best experience of my life. I always joke that I think a lot of people are like, my wedding was the best day of my life. And I'm always like, my wedding doesn't even come close. Great day. Awesome day. I love my husband. He's the bomb. But yeah, this was better. So in there actually was a hilarious moment just before I opened the door that I still we make a lot of jokes about this in my house. The wonderful gentleman on the phone was trying really hard to get me to get them to identify themselves. And so I'm like, oh, I'm supposed to ask you who you're with because I don't know how to ask this question. Guys, outside the door go. Don't worry about it. And I was like, so you are terrorists? What the hell? What are you doing? Don't worry about it. But I was like, you know what? At this point, let's just give it a try. Sure, let's go. So I open the door anyway, and they were wonderful. And they really had to like support me. They had to physically help me get downstairs and out of the hotel. So it was wild. It was like a movie, right? Like you see the end scene where you're walking out of this, you know, it should be a TV set that looks almost post apocalyptic, right? Broken glass and smoke and blood and, you know, you're defiantly walking out the front door with these two huge dudes like accompanying you out to the armored vehicle because you somehow have made it. You're alive after 17 hours. So that's another one that when I see it in my head, it's more like a movie scene than my life. Super weird. And so it continued to go on for hours after you were extracted holy fuck. Yes. So are you taking to an armored vehicle? Armored vehicle to the embassy? And you know what I know now that I didn't know then as I was already starting to have symptoms from that traumatic experience, which is not shocking, right? But it was really difficult for me to be in that embassy because I was convinced that it was a target. I was like, I've seen a million movies where they attack the episode. Where's my first thought? I was like, I don't know who's in charge of this, but like, no way is this a good place for us to be, but where is safe, the airport that gives nothing, felt like a great plan. And then the embassy there, the U.S. embassy in Nairobi has these doors that are weighted so they shut and they sort of slam into place and then they lock, you have to have like a badge or something to get through the building. And I was like, I think I might have been more on edge in the embassy than I even was in the hotel. It was like constantly all around me, something was slamming and I was like jumping and I'd turn and look everywhere 'cause I was just waiting. You know, I wasn't, I wasn't wondering if the terrorists were going to attack them. Because I was waiting for the new attack to begin. And those noises were just just grating on what was already a completely frayed nervous system at that point. So it was tough to be in there. But I was safe, so that's the physically safe, and that's what really mattered. So it was a good stop, ultimately. So what was next? I went to the airport and got on a plane, went through Germany and back to the U.S.. I mentioned that I lived in Germany for 6 months. And so very happy, very comfortable to touch down in Germany and be speaking German and like, yeah, I know how to do this and I feel really safe and there are all these guards in the airport and it's clean and it's organized and I was like, yeah, awesome. I'm so stoked to be here. And then being me and being like really loud, I don't think about the fact that I call my family from the Frankfurt airport. And I'm stoked, right? Like I'm like, yeah. And they're asking me questions and I'm still kind of in shock and some answering very vividly with a lot of detail. Yeah, and I looked out the window and I could see his leg and it was so bad and the gunman came in and it was fucking terrifying you guys and I realized that I have like an entire crowd of German business people because I'm in the business class lounge in Frankfurt airport. Oh my God. And I'm in like a cubicle acting as if it soundproof which is not it's like 6 in the morning and I stand up from that cubicle and there's an entire audience of German business people and I literally was just like. Sorry, Thea and just kind of like bailed and went to my plane. But you know it was weirdly this moment of I'm a spectacle. I could have told a million stories from my life before that wouldn't have garnered an audience and now suddenly I talk about this one day I had in my life and like people are standing up and turning around and audiences are gathering and that yeah, that was the first time I realized this is an experience that a lot of people can't relate to and that means that now talking about it like I am going to be a spectacle. I don't know how to do that. So it was really bizarre. And talk about the dichotomy between it being a spectacle that I imagine you don't want to be. Sure. But also wanting to heal by sharing your story. Exactly. Well, it's been a journey, right? I was just having this talk with my mom yesterday. We were talking about the fact that,.

"There's like, you know, an adventure or something component. But no, I don't know that I would go seek out others, but I think I would read anything that Andy weir writes next. Would you read the Martian? No, I'm not going to go backwards. It's hard with this one because I feel like it is such a good human story that and the Martian is too, but it doesn't hit the same way, but I would suggest you watch the movie. Okay. I've tried some more science fiction after this, personally, and I've found it difficult to get into. So maybe it was a one hit wonder for me too, but I agree. I would read anything that Andy wear writes definitely. Let's get out of book talk and into some end matter here. I noticed that we both have obsessions from Athleta. Yeah, this is not sponsored by Athleta, but maybe it should be. I went into the outline and you had just written it and I had already planned so it was really just we're on the same page here, but tell me about, well, actually, I am also obsessed with your obsession. So I'm excited to hear you talk about it. Yeah. So I mentioned two weeks ago that I've started running and doing couch to 5 K and I'm running outside. And so one of the considerations is where do I put my phone? And so I realized that I had a pair of Athleta leggings that they'd sent me a while ago, and I never worn them. The Athleta salutation stash leggings. And I think they're more meant for studio workouts, but I like them for running, and I don't think they're see through at all. And they have the hip pocket. They have like a really deep hip pocket. And I'm obsessed with them, and now I've bought two more pairs of them because these are my running leggings. I will say, I recommend buying them one to two sizes smaller because otherwise, I think it depends on what workout you're doing. But when I run, I feel like I have them in medium and large in a large ones. My phone pulls it down a little. So I think you want them really tight. I can confirm that this is correct. I have them in two sizes as well and the key is to size down or they will roll down. And there is nothing nothing that annoys me more when working out is if the waistband is just slowly rolling down. Oh, it's the worst feeling. Where's failing? But they're incredible. I would agree with you. I tried, I bought a pair of two of the ones that are specifically for running, and I liked them less. I don't know which ones are specifically. They had a filter on their site. And I filtered and it was like the leggings that had a hip pocket that were for running. And I didn't like them as much. Interesting. I like that these are really thin. It's kind of like the align leggings from Lululemon. It's like second skin. Yeah. They're soft enough to also lounge in, which is great. Yes and no. For me. The medium is like pretty compressed. It's pretty tight. I wouldn't want to lounge lounge. I could certainly wear them on errands, but I wouldn't say they're like comfort. Okay, interesting. Tell me about yours because I got very close to buying this when you were talking about it on your Instagram. Yeah, so mine is the Athleta Cabo linen wide leg pants. And I actually bought them before a beach vacation that I went on because I wanted some easy linen pants to throw on over swimsuits or with t-shirts, whatever. Since getting them, I have discovered they are like the ultimate pant to wear on flights and for traveling, their linen, so they're breathable. They're still like full coverage. I hate wearing shorts or skirts or even really dresses on planes. So they're still pants. I initially was kind of annoyed when I got them because I realized they have zippers on the pockets, which I was like, oh, this isn't like the beach, like easy, breezy aesthetic. I wanted. However, I have discovered that they're kind of amazing for travel because I can put my phone in there, zip it up. If I'm running around, if I'm sprinting through the Frankfurt airport at full speed for a mile as I was recently, nothing is falling out of them. They just feel good. They're not constricting at all, which is incredible. Like whenever I see people wearing jeans on planes and like, are you well? It doesn't feel comfortable to me. It's just, ugh, no. So I highly recommend them and then for these, I would suggest sizing up one or two. Interesting. That's my personal experience. Let's talk about books because we both have a lot here. We do. We really do. Do you want to go first? Sure. Yeah, there are a lot for me, but I finished since we lost talk, a court of mist and fury. I kind of talked about it enough on the last episode, probably, but I really enjoyed it. I did feel it was really long. Did you like it better than the first book? Yes, absolutely. That's my favorite book in the series, I think. I enjoyed it so much. I think that I will probably take a break from the series after it just because I read them back to back and it was kind of a lot. But I really enjoyed it. Also, did you realize there are 69 chapters in it? I do not. I checked like three times, and I was like, well, okay, I see what she did there. I also read the younger wife by Sally Hepworth. I downloaded on my Kindle. I just wanted something that was like a very classic domestic thriller. Didn't hate it, didn't love it. Yeah, that's pretty much as much as I can say about it. It kind of scratched that itch for like a pretty typical thriller. I also finished the school for good mothers by jessamyn Chan, incredible writing, absurdly dark, very disturbing in parts involved robots, so it's a little bit of sci-fi as well. I liked all the Philly references, but it's definitely a probably difficult read if you've had children recently. Or have children at all, maybe, but really great writing. And then I started see a tranquility by Emily St. John mandel. Have you read anything by them? Yes..

"Finish the paragraph. But from. The including Yale door lock doesn't work with ring of the Yale makes a Z wave lock that does. I mean, all right, I don't know, man. But I will say, okay, a door with prebuilt power cables in it is smart. Yes. So you can buy this and just rip everything out. Just put it. It's modularity. It's the dream of every CES gadget. Couldn't they just sell it without all this stuff in it? Yes, because then it would be beautiful. Just sell it at Home Depot. That's very good. I do appreciate that it, okay, you pick the door. Well, I was gonna pick the black and decker bev thing you mentioned. Yeah, that's my next one. So every year, CS is a robot bartender. And for many years in a row, I would make Casey Newton get drunk with me if there is CES events. Trying out various robot bartenders. There was a very famous ice slug that poor syrupy concoction down at mid case to drink the ice with me. So every year there's a robot bartender this year, black and decker. Power to a company. Released, I don't think it's fake. I think they're actually in a ship it because it's so simple. No Wi-Fi, no Bluetooth, no app. Good. You put in a DRM pod mixers. So the pods have barcodes on them. So you gotta buy the pods. You buy your pods. And then there's just a bunch of stainless steel straws. And you just go buy whatever you want and like put it in there and the regular old bottles is one of them for like seltzer so you can there's a water tank. I don't know if they've seltzers in the mix. But there's a water tank. Okay. It's got to be sensitive. That is insane. If it wasn't. And then you push the button for strength, and then it reads the barcode on your old fashion pod. And it just sucks up the bourbon. It spits it in a cup with the rest of the pod. And it's mixed to you a drink. It's like, I definitely could have done that on my own. You know how would you share it? It was like, you could just squeeze the bag. It's like, couldn't I just peel open the pot? It's very good, I appreciate it. I've graduated to the old man level of drinking. Okay. I no longer require mixers for ice. Oh, wow. Just like whatever. I don't have time for this. I see the doll the pain I need to happen right away. But there was a time when I would have been super into this. But it's very silly and it's a very hilarious from black and decker. And also the underlying technology is from a startup that wanted to all the Wi-Fi stuff. But I think they found in black and decker a partner that was like, what if we take all the smart stuff off it? And just dump the pods in the glass. Done. It's very good. By the way, startup is called the bartesian. Eli, you missed the best part. It does have a party mode where it has led to light up the bottles. Yes. If you walk into somebody's party and they brought bartenders from like party mode, you're like, oh this is gonna be a good party. There's a commitment here that I can see. Version two of this thing is built into a Sony party speaker. Yes. Just mounted right on top of it. Look, the market for that thing is frat parties through and through. This too. All right, so you got one more? Oh, I don't know. Probably the breathing the breathing power case. That's really good. The CyberPower, PC case, it looks kind of like it's breathing. And it's trying to think of how to describe it. For most angles, it looks like a normal PC case. And then the front has all these little triangles that open up to suck air in and they look kind of alive and alien and neat. Yeah. They're like little flappy triangle flaps. Yeah. And they're just kind of like doing the thing. Yeah, it's just nice. And it's really going to exist. It's really shipping. And cyber power makes good products. This will probably be pretty good. It may sell for like two 50, I think. Yeah. These adjustments are out limited to simple open and closed, but rather opening and closing and adjusting in real time to every degree of temperature change. Yes. That's the quote. I've always wanted a PC that sounds like the departure sign of the Frankfurt airport. Yeah, that's one of those pictures. I don't know if they still have it. It's one of the big flappy clickers, you know? I love the idea that you turn on any video game and the flaps will all just open. And that's it. It's like, well, we've detected several degrees of temperature. It's good. All right, dieter. And there's a lot of stuff there's the robot shelf, which is great. There's actually, we didn't get it in the show notes, but eargo has a new hearing aids that automatically adjust their volume based on ambient noise. And hearing aids are going to be a big product category for 2022. But you know, we started making a joke about at the beginning of the show. I got to go with the HP dragonfly Chromebook. I don't even know if this is technically CES, but it just got announced. It is the pixelbook that I've been waiting for. Yes. It has a three by two screen. You can get it at a pretty high resolution if you want to. The touchscreen, it flips all the way around in 360 mode. There's magnets on the back, so when you flip it around, it actually holds together. It's got 32 gigs of ram. It's got 12th genital processor. It has a big enough battery. It looks like it's well made. I have no idea what's going to cost. I'm sure it's going to be way too much. But all of the crap that I have wanted out of a Chromebook that's actually premium that I've had since the pixelbook two is this thing. I wouldn't even say the pixelbook two. I would say the Chromebook pixel. So I think the pixelbook two the pixelbook managed it more the chroma pixel was great. The pixel book that did okay. But this thing, this dragonfly man, it's everything. It's like, oh, yeah, like stop compromising and making a Chromebook that's like, oh God, 16 by 9. Oh, God, it's not powerful enough. It doesn't make sense to spend a thousand bucks on a Chromebook for anybody. I mean, the answer is no, I'm sorry. But if you like Chrome OS and you have a $1000 to spend on a Chromebook, this is finally the Chromebook that should have existed for the past two years. It finally exists. The Chromebook pixel occupies a special place in my heart because I bought one for my mom, which is a insane thing. I wandered around the streets of New York City like asking strangers. I'm going to buy my mom a $1000 Chromebook, and they'd all be like, who are you? And she uses this saying she loves it because she doesn't have to think about it. It just does web stuff, and then she closes it and goes away. And I'm going to upgrade a dragonfly. Oh, it has a fingerprint sensor, too. At a privacy screen, just like, it has a webcam cover. It's just a very it has a mute button for the microphone on the keyboard. So you can just hit it and the mic is off. Yeah. It's like, again, I only love this because I've been waiting for Samsung that they were going to make one. We thought that was going to be the next high increment, wasn't it? We had nothing great for the perfect Chromebook last year. And so now we've got it. And I will probably buy it. Yeah, I'm talking about it. I'm going to end by saying PlayStation VR two confirming the name is no. I think my last one is this Motorola MA one dongle for wireless Android. Okay. Because there's a huge market of whack a do wireless CarPlay adapters. They're very wacky do for CarPlay. And they're not great, but there's a lot of them. And many of them are actually the same Chinese sourced guts which is in different cases by different fly by night startups, whatever. Not so many Android auto ones. There's one that is like an IndieGoGo one. Yeah, there's a handful. It's not like unheard of. But we haven't had one from a trusted brand like Motorola. Oh, wait. Whoops. Yeah, so this is like a Motorola brand licensing deal from what's the name of this company? Which describes itself as a Motorola strategic brand partner. Yeah, that's how that's how I describe it. That's relationship. I need a module that does both CarPlay and editor at all because we're across platform family. So you have to meet us and you head unit because that's the only way I know. You have to plug your phone into it then? Yeah. And then you plug the dongle into your car. Do you have to plug your phone into anything? No, no. This is the whole point. Can you cars have wireless charging pads and wireless card player Android auto? So the dreams you get in the car. You're like fling the phone onto the wireless pad. It starts charging and then CarPlay lights up and you're like into gear and you're off. Yeah. So actually, the most important.

"So is the president of the U.S. getting involved at this? I don't know if he was personally involved, but he's personally aware of what's going on and directing that he wants to stop that we want the Germans to not allow them to enter Germany. We don't know why they were going to Germany. We don't know, was that their final destination? Or was that just a stopping point to move on to the next location? Do they have property in Germany is like they did in Miami? Later on, we found out, remember, and it was, I think, I was talking to the retired country out of shape or DEA and he was telling me that they did own some property in that area. I think it was around 5 30 or something. They did own property there. So when the flight lands, as the story has been relate to us, and this is we had de agents in Frankfurt at the airport with the German authorities when that flight landed. And as I understand what the flight landed, it was not allowed to go to the terminal. It was taken to a taxiway somewhere made to wait. So all these people were waiting since big because the Escobar families on there. And that's the German government trying to determine what they're going to do. So when they finally let, I think they had a bus come out and take the family off of the plane as the way I remember it. And they put the Escobar family into quarantine inside the Frankfurt airport. I don't know if you've ever been to Frank where it's a huge, huge airport over there. So we've got our agents, our local agents on the ground, that live in Frankfurt are working hand in hand with the German authorities. And they've since told us that it was when the family got there. It was 50 50. There was some Germans wanted to be allowed to enter and some wanted to be expelled. So that negotiation went on all night long the next morning, the German authorities made the decision to expel the family back to Bogotá on the next flight out of Frankfurt back to Bogotá, the family was placed on that flight and sent back home. Our guys are on that flight as well. Our agent and the two Columbian police officers. Did you guys provide a reception for them when they landed at Bogotá? Well, javi and I were there at the airport wait for them. Did you have a welcome back home? I didn't even come up and say hello or anything. Just ignore this. Oh gosh. Oh, dang. Who what I thought? Well, I mean, but this is a major issue, right? I mean, it's hitting the press. It's hitting the headlines. If people didn't know about Pablo and you didn't know what was going on in Colombia, you sure as hell did now. You're going to love this part..

"That's the sound of equipment BioNTech's headquarters in Maine's Germany. It's about a half hour drive west of the Frankfurt airport. Okay, what do you see here inside these rooms? The lab and infrastructure director Francois perino is showing me around. I've been at BioNTech's offices before in late 2018, and I'm struck by what has changed. And what has stayed the same? Now they have a fence and a security officer who takes his time letting me in. But the building itself doesn't look any fancier than it did before. Most pharma headquarters that I've visited have a certain class even year. There tends to be a lot of modern art soaring atriums and high-tech elevators. Not BioNTech. We mostly take the stairs, which is okay because the building's only a couple stories tall. The labs are on the same floor as the CEO's office. They've been adding research space and equipment, though. So this is a kind of workbench where all the steerer processes are performed. Because the whole facility is called cell culture facility. And within this facility, we do all our experience with cells, cells from human, for example. When Francois joined BioNTech in 2016, about 550 people worked at the mindset quarters. Now it's about three times as many. And most of the development of the car work or community vaccine was performed inside a police facilities over here. The whole culture facility is approximately about 400 m². And it's just about so culturing. We're there in the late afternoon, so the labs have emptied out quite a bit. A few scientists slinger. Taking advantage of the quiet to finish projects. Some of the people we meet are working on research that's still far from being ready to be tested in patients. The mind's facility also makes mRNA for use in research and development. BioTech is pouring its COVID vaccine profits into its pipeline of new experimental medicines. Company scientists are working on some infectious disease projects. Including vaccines from malaria, HIV and tuberculosis. None of those are far enough along to be tested in humans though. The more advanced part of the pipeline is almost entirely potential cancer treatments. The company is running 19 patient trials in cancer. About half of these are mRNA vaccines. In fact, before the COVID pandemic, BioNTech was basically a cancer company. As we learned in last week's episode, it didn't work on infectious disease vaccines until mid 2018. When it signed a deal with Pfizer to develop a flu shot. But it's already treated about 600 patients in cancer trials. Most were small studies designed to look at safety. That's how drug development works. First, you test a potential medicine in only a few people. And if it's shown to be safe, you can move on to testing its efficacy in a bigger group. You might see some hints of an impact against disease in phase one. But that's not really what those trials are designed to find out. But thanks to the COVID vaccine cash, BioNTech has been able to move quickly on the bigger studies it'll need to push its cancer programs forward. One of those programs is called inest. Essentially, it's a personalized mRNA cancer vaccine. We're standing in front of a washing machine sized piece of equipment in one of the labs. It's crucial to the project. And this machine is very important. It's very important for us because this is one of let's say a kind of the heart for our analysis for the honest treatment. In order to make a personalized cancer vaccine, BioNTech has to sequence the genetic code of each patient's tumor. The researchers use this machine to do the sequencing. So every the tumor is caused by different mutations inside the genome. And we have to have a look at the whole genome to be sure that we find that we that we identify the mutations and that we know how to shape the mRNA. The computer algorithm helps them find the special pattern of mutations that's unique to the tumor, not found elsewhere in the body. Then BioNTech's teams can take that pattern and build a template for an mRNA treatment. Remember how the mRNA vaccine for COVID works? It delivers instructions for cells to make the spike protein the SARS CoV-2 virus. That jolts the immune system into action. So if it encounters the real virus, it can act quickly to stop it. The mRNA cancer vaccine would train the body's immune system, too. But to attack a tumor, not a virus. It's a treatment, not a preventative measure. The mRNA is let's say the needed trigger for your immune system. BioNTech already has some promising results with inest in the small trial with just 13 patients. It's now testing that technology and bigger studies in melanoma and colorectal cancer. Like for the COVID vaccine, they're working with an experienced partner. It's one of the biggest cancer drug makers in the world. A Swiss company called Roche holding. You may have heard of Roche's U.S. unit called Genentech. I wanted to get Roche's view on mRNA cancer vaccines. So I called Charlie fuchs, who runs their oncology and hematology product development. He's the former director of Yale cancer center, and as an oncologist, he helped run huge clinical trials for other successful cancer immunotherapies. Charlie says the COVID vaccine success is a good sign for the likelihood of mRNA technology working for cancer too. Seeing that on a population level and seeing the validation in patients that this technology really does enable a robust immune responses, I think is an important step in believing that we can leverage this technology for cancer. Still, just because mRNA vaccines worked against COVID doesn't mean they'll stop tumors. You know, viruses are tiny little packages of limited genetic code. That can create havoc by interfering with functions, the normal functions of a human cell or for that matter, creating an immune response that's harmful. But they're very limited. Cancers are a lot more complex. They're a lot better at defending themselves. Cancers are human cells that have mutated to leverage the full extent of the machinery and genetic code of a complex human cell. Such that it will become spread and because it has the availability of the entire human genome associated with it, that it can actually come up with lots of different mechanisms. To overcome response to cancer therapy. To sustain itself to avoid the immune surveillance. This is one reason that doctors often combine cancer therapies. And it's one reason, unfortunately, the cancer treatments sometimes stop helping. After a few months or years. And so there's just a lot more to deal with when you developing a cancer therapy. As opposed to a virus, which is a tiny little compartment, a very limited genetic code, very limited DNA or RNA. Charlie tells me he thinks they'll have a better sense of how well mRNA vaccines.

"Free talk live. The number is six three two eight three sixty one sixty six zero three two three six one six zero for reading and sharing with you playing audio from australian quarantine camps. I mean jail slightly nicer jail. Apparently they were holding people in hotels but now they also have camps. And i say now we've just now found out about them but they've been around. Apparently one of them was a Disused construction workers hostel outside a darwin australia in a place called howard springs which is now being converted to a quarantine camp. They're building another facility. Outside of toowoomba in a place called well camp and that apparently was the name of it before they decided to build a quarantine facility there. So that's that's happening and one of the things that we had were confused about earlier. Was i thought for sure. Taxpayers footing the bill for this. I mean they are a little bit. They're probably they're helping out their leasing the facilities or and or building or whatever these these facilities but i thought if they're gonna mandate that if the government tells you you have to go here and do this thing you'd figure they were gonna pay. You know the at least the government would cover the cost of it but no no these. These travelers are paying for it. He individual has to pay for their own quarantine costs this from the actual Northern territory government page mandatory supervised corentin international and interstate travelers from designated hotspots. Wherever those might be who are eligible to enter the northern territory are required by law to undertake fourteen days of quarantine and supervise a combination under the public and environmental health of act of two thousand eleven. The accommodation is determined by the northern territory. Government and these two camps the howard springs. I'm sorry the center for national resilience and howard springs. Darwin and the alice springs courtroom. Silting alice springs. Individuals entering into manitoba provides quarantine in the northern territory will be charged a rate of two thousand five hundred dollars per person or five thousand dollars for a family of two or more people for fourteen days of quarantine. And i'm i'm i'm guessing if you fail. They're silly cova tests by at the end of this fourteen days and you had to stay for another ten days. I'm thinking you'd be charged. Accordingly eighty person found rates to any person found breaching quarantine regulations will be liable for fines. And yeah the article. I was reading from a lady from moscow She says that it was comparable and she just decided to stay in the center and then she then she so. They gave her the choice. You can go stay in this hotel or day. here cry. Stay in a hotel and probably get charged up you know what. And because of the the chart the cost of things these days or stay in this nice government facility and but no no alcohol. No restaurant deliveries. Oh no no no electrical appliances no going outside and talking to people. Just stay on your in your in your stoop with your mask on for fourteen days unless you screw up in which case it could be longer unless you screw up as in either you know. Try to leave like some people do. Take your mask off mask off and or fail the stupid test. Which is which happened and they come around. There's actually a detailed piece written by robin dixon over at the washington post this was written back in may taking place in howard springs. She writes in australia's northern quarantine camp a disused construction workers hostel outside darwin. The rooms are basic and the food is well institutional but the fresh air eucalyptus trees blue skies and wind on your skin. Our sources of joy. Hey look nice you gotta get it where you can use when you're in jail except now you can't sunbathe anymore. Because people were getting out there. Who aren't who aren't aware of the austrailian son. Oh yeah so they so. They have outlawed sunbathing on native green parrots trip as they swoop by geckos cleaned the verandah sealing the blinding sun reminds you that you're home reaching australia is difficult. During the corona virus. Pandemic for many can take months people at the howard springs camp though feel lucky few complain about the rubbery pillows uncomfortable beds limited furnishings or soggy sandwiches in a center that politicians call the gold standard. They though to endure fourteen days of quarantine. She says she ordered treats from the local supermarket jar of vegemite. The ultimate childhood comfort food for australians and a pack of vita wheats the tooth joined crackers that australian use australians use to administer the black salty breakfast spread. She says she also acquired a bitter australian t- to make a strong dark brew getting here from moscow so maybe the same person it is took four days including three in special preflight quarantine in a frankfurt airport hotel today corona virus test from the center approved by qantas which is the australian airline that she went on the sprawling fenced fenced. One lady did climb over top of it. So it's not it's so it's not. They haven't decided razor-wire climbed over. That's going to be there. Excuse once house thirty five hundred construction workers in squad prefab units that australians call dunga's gray linoleum floors and walls harsh fluorescent lighting battered venetian blinds and fire. Engine red furniture. The feeling is part trailer camp part hospital part prison teams wearing personal protective gear and wheeling carts deliver food once a day at about five. Pm and leave it on the baking verandah step although they might forget about you nurses rap sharply at least jail. You get food three times a day now and there's usually a guard that you can bang on the door and get their attention once an hour when they walk around doing their checks to make sure you're not dead in their nurses wrapped sharply on the door for random early morning temperature checks. That also happened in jail and it wasn't random it was almost every single day. There are some days where they skipped it for whatever reason but almost every day there was a guard walking around with a nurse knocking on every single door and holding one of those Those head forehead. Temperature guns to your head which is really disturbing when it's actually the guard himself the otago. You swing open the door. They swing open the door. And there's a guard pointing a gun right at your head wearing a badge and everything. It's very strange. Police and soldiers are on patrol. Occasionally shouting at people to put on masks. And there's a thirty nine page booklet of rules and procedures. So we read one page to you earlier all of this for the price of a good hotel room now. I suspect the rules are similar at the hotels. Read like if they're using hotels to quarantine people then they must have agents positioned in the hotels like the the hotel video that we had had men in the hallways threatening people right so clearly there's government agents in the hotels that they're using as these locations like so. I guess my only question now is. Why didn't this lady decided to stay in the hotel. Are there none available. Are the rooms available. Was the price a little bit higher and she decided to save a little some bucks. The rules are detailed. No alcohol no care packages no restaurant deliveries balls. No sunbathing no metal silverware. No scissors or sharp implements no cooking. You know why. There's no scissors allowed leader. Kill.

The state's attorney general released a damning report yesterday which found the governor had sexually harassed eleven women. So what's next for cuomo. And what will happen if he doesn't resign. Well let's get the latest with our new york correspondent henry sheridan who joins us now. Good afternoon and good morning where you are henry. Brian kelly on your side of the pond. remind us about the main findings of this report so this report was more than four months in the making terms of the duration of the investigation. And yeah came out yesterday. It's main findings with that. Andrew cuomo the new york governor sexually harassed nearly a dozen women including current and former aides. Some of this harassment to perform the suggestive comments but cuomo also touch some women without their consent including a state trooper who was working. As part of his security detail. Report also said the cuomo created toxic atmosphere in office. The left these women afraid to report the governor's harassment for fear of retribution. In the attorney general of yorker to shames as the welder report reveals deeply. Disturbing picture of the governor's actions at the matter is civil in nature does not have any criminal consequences. Appreciated that it would be the purview of of other prosecutors to pursue criminal charges essentially in the future well henry regular listeners monocle twenty four on the show and of course others will have heard your frequent chronic cling of this story. It's kind of continued to unfold in recent weeks a month. Does that give you any particular insight in terms of what might happen next given the complexity of the civil versus the criminal aspect Also this factor that this is not really a an established Impeachment process were an established process for what happens should the sorts of of claims and accusations be found. Do you have any sense of what the next steps might look like the same considering the next steps is the pressure for cuomo to resign which was significant. Even before this report was released has now reached a kind of fever pitch an interest to indicate how how much pressure is under the president. Joe biden. who's who's a longtime friends. In fact that the governor has has cooed him to resign in light of this report house speaker. Nancy pelosi us. He's been a longtime associate of quo. Family knows only the governor also for the first time who has called for him at step aside in light of this report so he'll have to resist that immense pressure to resign if not power if that is able to do that that he may face impeachment proceedings at new york state's itself taken forward by the state itself now unlike other states new york doesn't have his to remove elected officials via recall instead an impeachment process unlike the the presidency so that would start in the assembly the state's low at chamber if the majority of the assembly votes to impeach equipment. The matter will then move to impeachment cooled at consisting of all the sitting state senators except the majority leader and at seven members. Of new york's highest court. The of appeals they. Would they need to vote. I woulda two third majority to remove cuomo but as you mentioned. There's very little precedent for this. Not really impressive. At all of the fifty. Six governors state as had only one was impeached has been impeached. That was back in nineteen thirteen. His name was governor. William soul sir. An evening in that instance cases controversial sorts defenders say he was innocent and that his impeachment orchestrated by the time all political machine put him into power but which here which he later define and there's essentially no case law the matter at passage in the state constitution addressing. The matter is is vague about what falls into the category of an impeachable offense. So it's all very very murky going forward this at this juncture pretty murky and the mist of time. You still in short trousers went you henry back in nineteen thousand thirteen Let me see. Then let's say that cuomo cannot ride this out and it does have the feeling like the these these of controversy keep on coming any sense of what. The succession story could like. If that were to happen yeah. He goes succession stories. Pre clear he'll be replaced by the lieutenant governor. Kathy hokuto hokuto would become the first female governor if if if that does take place and been elected on a ticket with cuomo twice but they seem to have too close of a working relationship and who has cooled cuomo to resign herself. Might have this repealed. Now hendra. I mentioned earlier. That you've been tracking the cuomo story oversee from your vantage point. in new york city and i'm sure our listeners. If they want to kind of track back and hear those chapters they'll be able to find them on our on our website wherever got their pokers etc. But just remind us about this fall from grace. Because it's pretty well. It's pretty spectacular. isn't it. i think he's definitely worth casting your mind back to supposed the first quarter of last year. Where at the beginning of the of the corona virus outbreak in america of which. New york was at the epicenter cuomo. Really it kind of was able to to use his handling of that crisis as springboards to kind of boost his profile to to to a national profile really kind of became a national dawning and the back of his widely viewed televised corona virus briefings. That went onto win enemies in fact but the beginning of this year his his golden boy reputation began to be tarnished with a with a series of scandals of one of the most of the was that he had a concealed the extent so governments abusive conceal the extent of nursing home. That's new caused by troy virus. Another extremely series strands of the allegations against him with sexual harassment allegations which is now being investigated air but which began back then. There was also a bizarre strands that he had Used state resources to compose a self-aggrandizing book giving account if his handling of the pandemic american crisis so it. Really things have really snowballed for him over the course of the last year and has comprised the a really spectacular fall from grace. Yeah absolutely well. Eve chronicled so much of it for us. Henry and i'm sure we'll him from you as this continues to unfold in the days ahead. That was acting new york correspondent. Henry reese sheridan. My thanks to him. Now let's catch up with colored rebelo she standing by with the day's other news headlines. Thanks tom four. People were killed and eleven injured when gunmen attacked the home of the afghan.

And so on. And they have a a pipe underneath that serves as a drainage that used to be the creek and the ravine and suddenly you get this water.

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

Introducing you to her it him after these tech headlines. Walt Disney has a bet that in order to stay on top. It needs to come to you by streaming entertainment directly to TV's and phones, it is preparing to launch a service called Disney. Plus that will for a monthly fee stream new and old shows built around its most popular franchises, thus breaking off a lucrative relationship with Netflix and instead competing against it Thursday. Disney is expected to reveal the details in a major presentation to investors laying out the company's streaming strategy in a cloud enabled a I push Google targets. CIO's enterprise technology executives are at the center of Google's new strategy to drive business to its cloud based artificial intelligence services, the company cloud, a division looking to carve out a larger slice of the enterprise market announced tools this week aimed at helping chief information and technology officers addressed common business problems. The tools include prepackaged AI services that can understand invoice. And contracts and offer supply chain recommendations and predictions. The competition remains stiff as Google fights for bigger stake in the cloud market. Microsoft had thirteen percent of the worldwide market in two thousand seventeen and according to Gartner's most recent data, Amazon which pioneered the business held nearly fifty two percent Google share three point three. The journal says AI has been a critical component of the cloud business for Google and it intends to dramatically boost the sales and support staff for its cloud services division and for quick market.

Come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation helping clients apply. Technologies like cloud and AI to their unique business challenges Deloitte got com slash look again. In the podcast special coverage of the WSJ pro artificial intelligence, deep dive, we get to meet a robot with a human like face. That's trying to take talking to our machine friends like Siri and Alexa to the next level. One company for hat. Robotics is already there. Gabriel Skansi the co founder of the company says we're ready for new machine assistance. The first step a face for fixes developing this Roble, it's both the hardware around the software running it, and the ideas religious sort of revolutionized the way we interact with machines. So if we look back interacting with machines with graphical user, interfaces or smartphones. And so on we believe that the Uman face is really sort of the way we are using direct with other people, and we can use that to interact with machines. We think that the face has been neglected in like, voice assistance, and so on. And we think that the face Carrizo much important information that we already know how to interpret all so we don't have to invent a new set of signals for the system to show them to use for these robots by this point is fairly clear. So the ideas that we develop in this platform with the tools for developers to develop applications on top of it. Without further ado, the robot would like to introduce it self this is for hat. Go ahead. My name is for hat, and I am a socially intelligent robot in a near future. You might meet me at airports, hotel, receptions, bangs schools, and hospitals. I can't wait to see what interesting applications people will come up with. Can you have different demotions? Sure, my voice and facial animation. Allows me to express all kinds of emotions I can't be very happy. And cheerful. But sometimes I can feel a bit sad other times, perhaps even be angry. Unlike other. Robots? I can have many different personalities and there are big plans in development. So get comfortable. We have a lot of different partners working in different verticals. So we have for example, working with Chaban as they are putting the robots in airports and train stations. So actually, it's it's they're working on it. Now, we had it at the Frankfurt airport last year as a test pilot. It worked really well, we have a collaboration with Swedish recruitment firm having the robot.
