Airbus' Ambitious Hydrogen Plans

"I'm happy to welcome with me on the program senior editor, Guy Norris and tier to our France Bureau chief who as you surely know if you read ideation? Gregory is an expert in aerospace technology subjects to. This week, we are going to talk about three aircraft concepts that Abbas presented for the first time. They are very different from each other in many ways, but they do have one thing in common they are supposed to be powered by hydrogen. And Abbas Vision in the transformation of aviation into a greener more sustainable, future exciting ideas but lots of questions too. So let's take a step back I wonder if I can ask you to just walk us through the plans that Abbas. Presented this week. Sure So basically, there are three concept plaints. At the center of the city they called him supplies because none of them will actually be built but three directions that are going to be studied in depth. One of them is looks like turboprop aircraft to wing configuration. I think the maximum. Capacity would be around one hundred passengers. The other one. Sorry. The first one, I mentioned a because it would burn hydrogen in relatively conventional outside rented conventional. Engine turbines. The second concept plane is also conventional Tuban Wing country duration from be powered by two defense number props to defense money hydrogen. Again, capacity is between one, hundred, twenty, two, hundred passengers, and just like the first concept plane the shooting hydrogen attack is located at the rear of the fuselage and the third concept is definitely the most spectacular. It's a blended wing but. Again powered by defense. So often concepts contemplates both hundred ten. Engines but the big difference, the May feature of the sudden is the blend buddy consideration, which means you can much more optimize hide myrow dynamics, and you can also dispute passengers and fuel tanks. I, know much more efficient way in the in. So. Roughly speaking this, all three concepts that are is. Speaking about so we're we're kind of fifteen years right I mean they're talking about enter enter into service in twenty thirty five but already, they're making some very important technology choices you mentioned liquid hydrogen for instance can just walk Ciragan. You know what are the steps that are coming up in between now and twenty, thirty five so between now one, twenty, thirty, five, the and again, twenty thirty five is the plant date for entry to service our first main Maislin if she wishes twenty twenty-five by then they expect to have majored some technology bricks as they. Call them to choose from and they would launch a program in twenty, twenty, seven or twenty, twenty eight. So that would be a food program for the Industrial Program between or twenty degrees and would would be very, very informative for us to follow is the next five years they plan to do several demonstrations. So they will demonstrate that technology bricks such as hydrogen storage, for example, and one of the most demonstration projects is about hydrogen storage and distribution they were stopped on the ground, but they also plan some instructional on the sorry in the era in. which could be quite a spectacular and they plan quite. Surprised by this, they plan to start with gaseous hydrogen storage demonstration before moving to liquid, and as they seem to have made a choice ready for liquid hydrogen meet surprised by the fact, they are going to also test guess. So Guy. Abbas. Seems to be really enthusiastic about this and it's kind of came out of nowhere but it came a bit of as a surprise to me. That's enthusiasm isn't really shared by everyone in an industry particularly in the engine industry they're still seem to be quite some serious reservations about this. So can you tell us what what what you're hearing? Yeah Hi there. It's basically a very is a very interesting time because, of course, the engine manufacturers like the fray manufactures they're all facing this kind of cliff of how do we meet the sustainability targets in really thirty years seems like a long time but but in the aerospace business, it's really not They've got. So they've they've been approaching this idea of whether to adopt the new transformational approach. Mostly based on alternative fuels, which would be dropping into the existing kind of infrastructure, the existing propulsion designs and the existing tube and wing configurations that the framers of loved and developed and perfected for the past fifty years all nor so you can imagine that there is a bit of a shock going on here to how do we suddenly move all of that towards a hydrogen based ecosystem. Of course, the other thing is that they've saying, well, you know we have been that before we've studied this, we started in the nineteen fifties, for example, more based for military type applications again, in the seventy s during the fuel crisis when they the first global fuel crisis and again in the nineties when there was the first glimmers of the emerging environmental issues this time of course, it's different as you both said, you know the there is a driving force has never been there before, and of course, the the French government tying the. Incentive. Package really to sustainability is the big decision making sort of driver on this. So you know the fact that. There's much more urgent need now is is changing the game, but doesn't change the fact that there is seventy years of history of safety and certification and development behind a no operational cycle around kerosene people know how to handle it. They know how to certify it, and this is a whole new ballgame. So why would you know bus get buy in from the other industry participants if that wasn't possible for one reason or another over the past? Several decades well I mean one of the thunder, the reasons that time does move on and technology has improved. They're all ways of coping now as a couple of ways to look at it. One is from a big picture perspective. The big challenge that a lot of them see both in and out of aerospace is the fact that they feed stalking. The actual production of hydrogen has to be done in a sustainable way to make this entire equation balance

Tiffany Files Lawsuit Against LVMH To Enforce Merger

"Let's turn to the latest developments in the ongoing legal battle between the US jewelry giant Tiffany and French luxury group lvmh. Last November lvmh agreed to acquire Tiffany, but tiffany has since accused of trying to run down the clock in order to let the deal run out of time. So then now trying to fast track the process well, Dana Thomas is the author fashioned police, the price of I fashion and the future of clothes, and to say, she joins us once again from Paris good morning. Good Morning. So bring us up to date in a story that twists and turns an awful lot. Well. This is this is the third time in my career that lvmh's done this week it's become a big big the deal the takeover deals become a big news story. They did it with Gucci they did it with our they lost both of them, and now they're doing it with tiffany and we'll see what happens the latest news is yesterday. The Delaware Court of Chancery where because they'll tiffany is registered in the state of Delaware. In the United States. Has, set a digital hearing date for four day trial starting January fifth and they're gonNA. They're if they don't settle this beforehand, they're going to go to trial and tiffany is pushing for the trial November while Lvmh, wanted it in March or April. So the courts split the split the difference in set it for January this is important because it's right before the US regulatory approval for the sixteen point two, billion dollar acquisition expires on February third. This is the largest bid for a takeover that lvmh did and it's I think the largest ever in the in the luxury industry. She doesn't want to pay that much now and understandably so. Tiffany is down. Had A first-half operating loss of forty, five, million dollars a loss of forty five in the same time. Last year, it had earnings of three, hundred, forty, five, million. So they feel like, yeah, we made this bid last November before Kovic. Everything else hit and Tiffany was thriving and now it's not worth sixteen point two, billion dollars. We'd like to reevaluate that and Tiffany's like saying too bad for you. Well, neither seemed to be giving any leeway on this because toughen says that it it doesn't see what has to cut its prices. It's ready to go to court and LVMH's saying start rushing us because you know the reason why I'm trying to Russia's you don't want us to look at the way that you handle your books during cove it. Well, it's not even just handling the books. All the stores were closed out around the world and people still ordered online. Could you would you order a ending tiffany jewelry online? Have it delivered to your mailbox? I don't think so unless you really needed to get married and that was that but I think that Tiffany Tiffany is. Really pushing for the most important thing which is that you know if they if they go to court lvmh. Chairman. Bernard Arnault could be deposed in the case and asked if he pressured the French government to help give the French group and out is the with this deal because the French government is the ones who stepped in and said, you know we're not going to you can't do this so. The firm, you know originally said that they were dropping this because of a US trade dispute, which is you know. Not terribly clear. So are no what have to swear you know in the courthouse on a Bible or or not in the courthouse because it'll be digital and say no I didn't ask the government to given how well connected he is with the government and with. President. Matt Cole. I wonder and and I'm not the only one to wonder and obviously tiffany wonders, and so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Dana how is this going to play out given the fact I mean you mentioned the fact that Lvmh's attempts to by the likes of Gucci didn't work out. Right well, there's a couple of different scenarios. The first one is it tiffany gets. To close the deal at the original price. I, doubt that's going to happen because Bernardo is a really shrewd businessman and he does not overpay. The second one is that the deal is done at a lower prices previously agreed they get some mediators in there they work it out before you tiffany's a publicly traded company. This could really make their their stock collapsed to a point that you know they're really. Hurting thirties at you know Arno. Tries to go hostile takeover because it is a publicly traded company and starts buying tiffany on the public market at a reduced price and eventually has so much that he says, boom I'm owner of the company too bad for you.

"Time now to get around up of some of the day's business stories with Bloomberg's union pulse UN first of all more details about a breakdown of the world's biggest ever luxury deal. It says here. Yeah, a breakdown involving tiffany jewelry. Now, the deal was between Lvmh the French of Louis Vuitton Christian detoro Kristen do many other luxury brands actually the world's biggest luxury company at eight had planned to buy tiffany of the US sixteen billion dollar deal the biggest in luxury history and yesterday we found out that deal is to break down a little bit of war of words broken out over why exactly it's broken down Bloomberg reporting. A scoop tonight, the album make chairman asked the French government for help in an effort to put out of the deal to buy. Tiffany is only by the company spokesman Coney at militias and totally on founded. Now, we understand that said the chairman off the French government to help out with this in NFL to renegotiate a low price in the wake of the grown of ours pandemic and the protests in the US which have been. Going on now, this is a deal which really took the luxury world by quite some surprise. It was a big big deal. There is no break-up feed has been agreed. So in theory, I could walk away without any costs, but it might hate the.

Boeing: Critical 737 Max test flights begin

"We talk about the Boeing 7 37 Max. We're all well aware of the two fatal crashes in close proximity to each other in terms of timing. We know the plane's been grounded. And You know, despite heavy lobbying by Boeing and the airlines at one point, that plane is still grounded. And it will probably fly again. But it called into question so many things that go back into a culture of behavior with the FBI on the FBI. The FAA should be the F B I. In fact, the FBI is investigating. Excuse me. The FBI is investigating the FAA and the manufacturer on this Because of their close relationship. I mean, how can the regulator Regulated airline or a manufacturer. When They're actually being told by the airline of the manufacturer. What's right or wrong doesn't make any sense. And in this situation we have a situation where The plane. I think you'd agree with this Greg. The plane on its own is not an unsafe airplane, the plane on its own. It's you know, it's just another iteration of an existing future lives that goes back to 1969 actually earlier than that. Earlier that year earlier than that, But the real problem here is how do you certify and airplane And what process do you go through to put two basically. Ensure that there's transparency and that people can tell the truth. Correct. Correct, But you know there are a couple things here. One certifying an airplane is a very complex process. And it has gotten more complex as new generation airplanes come out, especially with all the new avionics and all the Elektronik that control airplanes today. You know, back when they were building D. C three's When you pull it pushed and pulled the yolk. You were moving a cable that moved the elevator. You know, you pushed on the rudder pedals, you'd move a cable. Now it's all computer controlled hydraulically boosted So you're just giving an input in ones and zeros to a computer. The computer that makes things happen, and it becomes a very complex process. The other thing is, is that Congress Gave the FAA the authority because the FAA didn't have the resource supposed both monetary and manpower to go to a delegated system that is You hire qualified experts who are working on behalf of the FAA. They go into the manufacturer. They are your designated representatives. They are technically an FAA representative, but they're being paid by the manufacturer. Now that's a that's A. That's a big whoops. That's a big whoops. Well, they always thought that that was a conflict of interest. But anything that a D, e, R or a D A. R that the designated engineering representative for Airworthiness representative does in the factory. It still has to be approved by The F A. A. The small aircraft director of the larger craft director Door or Washington, D. C. It's not self certifying, and that really was a confusing discussion for the last year and half. Going isn't self certified. They are doing what they need to do to meet the regulatory requirement. It was the cozy relationship is it was, um, um, characterized. That developed because there was a lot of not a lot of, you know, over the shoulder looking that disappeared over the years, But every But every manufacturer Airbus Embraer Bomb party They all used the same designated engineering process. Why? Because the United States government, the French government, the Canadian government does not have the manpower or the expertise. And is on one of the public hearing the congressional hearing. If Boeing were to be the manufacturer, and the FAA wanted to put people in that manufacturing facility that were actual FAA employees, they'd have to hire 10,000 experts and they'd have to increase their budget by a $1,000,000,000. That's taxpayer dollars. Exactly, But But you know what? When you think about it, the first lawsuit sometimes and a $1,000,000,000 after the fact. Look,

How the the the virus and all the pandemic goes on and maybe a little bit later in June or end of June the championship in Phoenix. This season the to the decision. It's surprising because now we don't know what's going to happen was going to be champion. Who's going to be qualified for? The Champions League was going to be relegated. Who's going to be promoted those questions? We don't have answers. We have to wait for for the now.

We're very surprised because because it's going to be very hard for some clubs I think about Amir was nineteen now with only three or four points behind Neem and the and could have hoped for a continuation of the championship and be saved. Because you have thirty points in Games in game. So it's it's a hard decision that the government took socially as well because we know the people in France love football and want to see football. But they're not going to see football and soccer before September Frank. A lot of people asked me to ask you what's going to happen with the champion sleep. Espn Leon of course.

Apple is locked in a power battle with the UK, France, and Germany about how COVID-19 should be tracked

"Testing and contact tracing of infected people is considered the best way to limit the spread of the virus and let healthy people be able to leave their homes with low risk of infection. It's a way we can get back to work. Get back to other close certain behaviors and contact. Tracing is one of the things that technology can help improve? It can't replace manual tracing but it can help augment improve it make it more accurate. Make it easier to do. We mentioned yesterday that Germany has opted for the decentralized system of tracking. That's the one being used in the Apple Google platform for what they're now calling exposure identification. Because it tells you whether you might have been exposed. It doesn't actually trace any contacts and the UK and France have decided that there for the time being anyway GonNa go with a centralized system. That's where instead of everything being done. Your phone it's done on a server now both systems use Bluetooth to detect exposures. We've talked about that Ad Nauseam. But that's the thing where your device getting a rotating number you don't know who the numbers exposed to but if that person gets diagnosed with covert nineteen the number gets sent out and you can tell like Oh. My phone was near that number because we exchanged that number or through Bluetooth. So I know I was near that person who is infected on the Apple Google system. That's determined on your phone on the centralized systems that France and the UK are thinking about doing that. Matching happens on a server. And that's really the that's not the only difference. But that's the central. The centralized system carries greater privacy risks. Because that's now all on a server. More people can access it then. Connects us your phone but because it's centralized allows for research purposes like graphing of data look for patterns of spread as well as the ability to ask a user voluntarily shared their location data to maybe help study how the virus propagates if they want That's something you can't do with the Apple Google system. There's also a technical difference. Specific to the IPHONE doesn't allow most APPs to do Bluetooth data handshakes in the background. They will for their platform and they won't for other platforms so the UK. Australia and others are planning to have an APP. Kind of wake itself up regularly to be able to do these. Bluetooth handshakes which will use a little more power than if they were allowed to just kind of quietly in the background. So the a definitely doing this France. Patrick is also wanting to do this. What's what's the angle from there. That is a mystery. There are advantages as you mentioned to the more centralized system. Even decentralized system does have a little bit of centralization because you have to upload all of the effected positive tested. Id's to a server which will then be re downloaded to everyone and they will check against the ones that they have come in contact with locally But it it seems like yes. Those added benefits of the centralized system which is still very secure. It's a little bit less secure but it's I think that should be mentioned anytime we hear centralized we think. Oh One entity holding the keys to the Kingdom and so it has to be. It is obviously a little bit more susceptible to bad behavior but the wave. They've described it and they're supposed to have open source applications. Hopefully I mean. It wouldn't work if they didn't have also open source server programs and and so everything should be checkable open tour so he will be A safe and privacy protecting but they France and it seems the UK are sort of entering a An almost political battle with apple. Because we know at least it seems to be the consensus in the tech community in France. We know that apple is not going to cave and four very defensible reasons. They don't want to open the door to the these kinds of exceptions. What they would want in French? Government would be for apple to make an exception and allow this APP to use Bluetooth in the background all the time. Of course the reason this is not a available on. Ios Is to protect user privacy and it is very clear that enabling that's on Apps would endanger the privacy and users because Bluetooth can do a whole bunch of identifying If it's running in the background so apple is is very likely to cave so the fact that France is demanding this which by the way even waking itself up in the background. Maybe it doesn't nullify The efficiency of the APP but it essentially makes it untrustworthy and almost unusable. Well yeah because it's not only going to drain your battery faster but it probably when you have to have something to a work around like that there's more opportunities for it to glitch for it to have bugs go wrong and not work the way. It was intended. I imagine that apple says yes. We could look at the French APP and make sure that it's not doing anything bad. And give it special permission to use Bluetooth in the background because we trusted. But then we'd have to do that for yours and then we'd have to do it for Australia. And then we'd have to do it for every country on earth wants that you know what's easier creating a platform where we don't have to get special permission where everybody can just use it. That's more efficient. That's very apple thinking. And that's what they did but because it doesn't allow for centralization because like you say centralized server is fair fairly safe. Decentralized is safer it's more safe and apple and Google know that the less safe that something is perceived the less it's going to get adopted so they're trying to make their platform a safest possible to encourage adoption. Because you need forty sixty percent depending on who you ask of the populace to adopt this for to even have a positive effect. And it's not just that if they Make an exception for this APP for these countries. What happens next time? There's something a little bit different that someone asks an exception for then they can say oh. You did it for friends in that context. Will there's danger here as well. There's you know terrorism or even legitimate that would identify more people So it's really a mystery. What France the French government is thinking on that one? We've seen scratching our head and because again I really don't think apple is GonNa cave and I really think that the French government is clever enough to know that apple is probably GonNa cave. So I'm not sure what the end goal is there. This is my interpretation. Of course it could be different It it could not be the case but I'm not sure what they're trying to achieve and I guess we'll have the answer to this in a few weeks maybe days but certainly a You know something that is difficult to resolve here because again without that Special case from Apple. I don't think the APP is going to work. Well they're already challenges to the deployment of these APPs and it seems the German Way of saying. Are we need something that works? We don't have time to argue. Let's just go with the system that is available to us that everyone agrees is good by the way that decentralized system the way it's described is also vetted by a an independent group of French research of European researchers that designed as I'm sure you talked about design something it's interesting that was Inspired by apple was inspired by that thing apple in Google by the European project like there there are a lot of researchers kind of converged on the same way of. Doing things is like yes. This is the best balance of getting the tracing done while protecting privacy. The most right so it's not like Germany is going with this one as A. Oh it's going to be crap but we don't have a choice. It's still a pretty solid system. According to everyone who's worked on it so I don't know maybe the end France will relent. And we'll have to go with the existing system and will be able to hold it over. Apple's head saying you refuse to help

Harvard Professor's Arrest Raises Questions About Scientific Openness

"So it's May of Twenty fifteen. And a researcher named Chichaou. Shing is at his home near Philadelphia. She is a physicist at Temple University who studies SUPERCONDUCTIVITY SPECIAL MATERIALS. That can sometimes lead electricity flow through them with no resistance. There's a ton of applications for it and all of a sudden there's a knock door very very loud and urgency rental open the learns Esau arm agents outside and pointing their guns to my wife and daughters into an Tokyo in Hong Cups and I had absolutely no idea why okay. So why was he arrested? Like what was going on what the. Us government accused him of sharing a special piece of equipment with researchers in China. But here's the thing he did. Do it prosecutors. Were confused because well it turns out. Superconducting technology is just really complicated. But what about the idea that he was helping? The Chinese developed superconducting technology. Just in general. Well Dr she says sure. He works with scientists in China all the time and sometimes he spent summers over there doing research with them. But as you know Mattie one of the basic pillars of fundamental research is openness nothing. He shared was classified or restricted in any way. Qadam ICK espionage. It's a contradiction me. Everything we are doing is fundamental research. There's nothing to steal can. Just sit there and read your paper and sure enough about six months after this whole thing starts. The charges are dropped against doctor she. The government admits he's done absolutely nothing. Wrong I mean honestly it sounds like he just had collaborators which is like a major thing in science unless there was some weird money. Thing being exchanged or going on this is what scientists do. Yeah I mean. They're technologies that are restricted for example stuff to do with rockets that could be used in missile development say. The government has very strict rules about sharing that kind of information but generally scientists open collaborations. Happened all over the world. The thing is China is getting a lot more scrutiny. These days so fast forward to twenty eighteen attorney general. Jeff sessions is really concerned about the theft of scientific knowledge and intellectual property by the Chinese so the Justice Department launches what it calls its China initiative the goal is to crack down on the transfer of US knowledge to China and in the academic community the focus. False really quickly. I'm one program in particular. It's called the thousand Talents Plan. So our understanding is that originally. The purpose of the thousand talents program was to reverse the brain drain. That's Michael Lower. He's deputy director of extramural research at the National Institutes of health. And he's the main guy at NIH dealing with thousand talents. When he says brain-drain an example of that is like scientists. Go abroad to study and then end up staying in whatever country instead of coming back home. Exactly the Chinese government wanted to bring back outstanding scientists to China so as to develop their science and technology and the way the Chinese government does is by offering money so researchers set up labs in China and they spend at least part of their year over there Doing their work in exchange for grants and expenses paid and the program grew pretty quickly to include non-chinese scientists as well right and I think there are these kinds of programs in other countries to yeah. It's not uncommon. Canada had something called the one hundred fifty research chairs. I mean. That's kind of the less ambitious Canadian equivalent. Chevy Sega but with lower says is the thousand talents program has gone too far in the real problem from his perspective is that in a number of cases researchers are not telling their home universities or the. Us government for that matter about Chinese funding and not disclosing that Chinese funding. That's what's actually against the law. Exactly the types of behaviors that we are seeing are not subtle or minor violations What we're seeing is really quite egregious and that brings us back to Charles Lieber. The Harvard Chemist We were talking about earlier. Who is arrested back in January the complaint alleges Doctor Lieber signed a contract with the Chinese University in Wuhan and was paid to fifty thousand dollars per month plus up to one hundred and fifty eight thousand dollars in living expenses and awarded more than one point five million dollars to set up a research lab at the Chinese school and work there on researching nanotechnology that is a lot of money. Jeff that is like ten post docs full of money. At least I love that. Your brain calculates prices in post is seen but the bottom line is. It is a lot of money in the criminal complaint. Alleges not only did he get all this money. Lieber lied about being part of the program to Harvard to the NIH in the Department of Defense. Which together we're also giving him many millions of dollars in research money. I should say Lieber attorneys declined to comment about this case. They didn't WanNa speak to me but Mike clower from the NIH says there's a larger pattern here other scientists have done the same and it's a real problem. Collaboration does not involve offshore offshore bank accounts. collaboration does involve undisclosed cash payments. It does not involve undisclosed employment agreements or undisclosed contracts. It does not involve double dipping. Where a person is being paid salary to work in China and to work in the United States at the same time several scientists and other institutions have been fired over this he says the NIH is currently investigating around one hundred eighty other scientists. He thinks this is a systemic problem. So if these cases involve lying failing to disclose information which we do know is against the law. Why are scientists doing this? It's a really interesting question and I don't have a great answer as I said. Liebers attorneys have declined to speak to me In other cases other scientists who've been fired don't talk to the press generally now lower says. In some cases the thousand talents contracts scientists sign actually come with a nondisclosure agreements. So they're actually told by the Chinese not to say anything which is illegal but there's also more going on I mean it may be then some cases they fear if they disclose money from the Chinese. They are going to get more scrutiny on their work and then something else to consider is the possibility of just plain old greed the criminal complaint against Charles Lieber alleges and I should say alleged here that he was receiving cash payments from the Chinese. That some of this money was just coming straight up cash. Okay so the sounds problematic for sure but is it espionage. Maybe I have like an outdated old timey spy version of espionage but it doesn't necessarily feel like that to me no I mean. It isn't really espionage. I think it's really important to say that. Lieber isn't technically being accused of espionage. The government this is about the money and I think it's very telling the US government's going after the money rather than transfers of technology like you remember that superconducting case earlier. It's really hard to tell of. Someone's doing something illegal when they're collaborating scientifically and that's also got some people wondering whether these sorts of cases really deserve criminal treatment so frank who is somebody I spoke to. He's a professor at the University of California Hastings College of Law and he tracks these espionage cases and says arresting people for issues around what they disclosed for their grants. It just feels heavy handed to him zone. The past if there was a problem somebody would talk to you. Maybe you would face disciplined from your employer but you wouldn't face being fired and going to prison and having your name dragged through the mud as a spy in fact the same day. Lieber was arrested the Justice Department announced the arrest of two Chinese nationals. They say had lied on visa. Applications and illegally transferred biological samples. These aren't exactly the same kind of case. But you know it's the same general flavor. It sounds like a lot of people who have been accused are Chinese nationals or ethnically Chinese. Does we think that racism plays a role in this well would midst. There are some real espionage cases that involve Chinese people and they have been convicted. But they're sort of larger tone around all this. It sounds very familiar to him. No matter how assimilated. You are no matter how much you think yourself. I'm an American just like any other American winner of Chinese background. There's that risk always that people will look at you and suspect you're actually communist agent now. I should say. Us officials categorically denied. This has anything to do with race. I interviewed Andrew Leveling the federal prosecutor. Who ARRESTED LIEBER? And he said this if it was the French governments that was attempting to steal. Us technology in a massive decadelong campaign. We'd look for French people. But it's not it's the Chinese government and he actually points to the Lieber case as an example of how they're willing to prosecute anyone they think is broken the law by lying but even if the government doesn't think it's racial profiling it's definitely having an effect on the Chinese research. Community your remember. Chichaou shing the researcher who was falsely accused that we talked about well. I asked him. Does he still work with colleagues? In China. The short answer is yes but the more Ah Longer answer. Is that to my research. Now is much much smaller than used to be. And that's because he doesn't want to apply for federal grants anymore. He's afraid he'll do something wrong so every time I do all this conflict of interest floor alright to all these Grant applications and check boxes and also I I I I shake I I. I'm scared that if anything I didn't do exactly accurately I could be in

VW Beetle Part III: From Hitler to Hippies

"Back to the epic conclusion of our three part series on the Volkswagen Beetle. It's been dark road the F. Are you guys a lot of really messed up stuff? But there's a lot of peace in love in the future. Yea here that this episode is about peace and love so I'm looking forward to. We're going to get there. Hey guys welcome to the. Pass Gas podcast. You like passed gas. Please help us grow by giving us a good rating and a nicer view on the podcast platform of your choice to really help us out. I really appreciate it. Thank you all right now for the show. When we last left off the Volkswagen Wolfsburg factory originally meant to Make Carson. People WAS BUILDING WEAPONS OF WAR INSTEAD. Wolfsburg was targeted by the allies and nearly destroyed but the war ended. Hitler was dead. It was time yeah. It was time for the Volkswagen to live up to. Its name is name was the people's car Ooh bye-bye now that the war was over. Germany was faced with the massive task of reconstructing a shattered country including resupplying. The transportation needs for the people after the war. Germany was divided into multiple zones. The British American Soviet and French sectors Wolfsburg was situated within the British sector and the factory was still under the British pocket book in the years after the war it was also under constant threat of being shut down but once the British and American sectors merged it became apparent that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst would be able to secure the necessary funding to keep the factory afloat. The country would once again be allowed to participate within the global free market in nineteen forty seven. Obviously these policies had a direct impact on the Volkswagen factory British officials representing the VW plant had continued to push further permission to export during all of these changes every single one of their requests export though had been denied but now the Germany was allowed to enter the market the VW plant was finally viewed as a way to ease the British expenses and in March of nineteen forty seven. The factory quotas were raised. The People's car would be allowed to be exported outside of Germany but only to the Netherlands Belgium and France. The first official export of the car occurred in August that same year? A massive total of five cars were exported and the process was a difficult. One selling quote. Hitler'S CARS TO COUNTRY. Hitler try to Concord. Seemed kind of absurd but it wasn't Hitler's car anymore. So anything can happen. I think they should should stop calling Hitler's car if they want to sell it. Probably not the best marketing hooked. This is a great car. This was Hitler's car. It was obvious that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst couldn't run the plant forever. He was a military man and while he loved his position at the plant he had a larger job that took priority but each time they tried to take her out of the factory chaos ensued. He ran a tight ship soon enough. The search for a replacement began but for the volatile plant to return to German hands. It needed someone who had expertise when it came to running a major factory. Former Opel head Heinrich Nordhoff. Remember him from the last episode mentioned him he had been barred from working in the American business sector since he had been given an award from the Nazis. A FEW YEARS PRIOR ON K. Not a good look opal was controlled by GM. And Mr Nordhoff was forced out of his job. Due to America's quote no nonsense policy on Nazi involvement after the war you know other than hiring Nazi scientists to develop bombs and stuff. Yeah and like the entire space program. Yeah let's not talk about. Yeah that's true Operation Paper Clip. Look it up. When it came to looking for a factory manager Nordhoff. He might sense. He was experienced in managing factories and since the VW plant was under British control. He was actually allowed to work there on January. First of nineteen forty eight Heinrich took up position as managing director of the Volkswagen. Plant by recommendation of major hearst upon his arrival to Wolfsburg Nordhoff noted that the factory still looked exactly like it did during the war. It was basically a pile of ruins that could somehow produce cars so he knew he had a lot of work to do. So we got the work while he was meant to report to hearst with each action the roles were kind of reversed. It was obvious that Nord off was the expert and no one complained. Once you took control. The first thing Nordhoff did was replaced all the English signs back to German ones. Oh that's the bathroom is been peeing in jars from meanwhile nineteen forty. Seven was a terrible year for Ferdinand. Porsche he had been moved from his original prison to the Dank Dungeons in dijon into John. That sounds like your APP album named Dude Dank dungeons dungeons. That's pretty good good anyway remember. He had been arrested by the French. Police For colluding with Hitler Hitler. Yeah that guy so at this prison in the in Dijon. They were not even given beds all around him other men involved in the war. We're being sentenced to death in the Nuremberg trials. So at least Porsche was better off than that. After twenty two months Porsche and his family were released from the French prisons and declared not guilty of their crimes as the French government only tried him regarding the forced labor of French prisoners The Porsche Corporation to this day still denies the use of forced labour in their factory. At the time just it's better just to come clean about it. You know. Yeah Yeah I mean there's no way right. There's no way that they didn't. I don't know the rest of his record was sort of six months after his arrival to the Volkswagen Factory Heinrich Nordhoff was still sleeping on the factory. Floor on a flimsy. Kat issues plagued the factory especially the lack of housing but most importantly there wasn't really a local market for the cars. Germany was still dirt poor. And those who have the money to buy car tended to steer clear of the word. Volkswagen makes sense also. The factory was amazingly inefficient. It took workers in a reported three hundred hours to build a single car so nordhoff had to reshuffle the factory line in order to imitate the successful style of the lines in Detroit. Normally that Nordhoff expertise allowed him to play with the budget. A little bit. Nineteen forty-nine was the first year the factory was given a firm quota of forty thousand cars and nord-ost reshuffling allowed the cars to be produced over two hundred dollars under budget nor off also rebuilt the factory. He figured out that having bombed out walls and ceilings. Kinda hurt company around. Yeah I remember when our office got blown up. That was really tough to come to work every day. Yes like where do I plug my charger in? Yeah there's no wall. Where am I snack? All my snacks. So Heinrich had the place tidied up a little bit. Most importantly he completely changed the entire decision making power structure of the factory. Using a general manager who controlled multiple departments head on and so on while that's super commonplace. Now this was revolutionary at this time in German history but ultimately the company was still controlled by the British government and while they remain about as far out of the picture as they could heinrich still had to answer to them in the end.

"Amongst the french political class about the way in which monetary union works as we see from the things macron says but it is not the beast if you like that was imagined safely constrained by the germans in in the early ninety six in that sense the less german it became on the drug the easier you is for other countries to find it more acceptable as say. I still don't think this question about how different it can be from. What the german model is without politically fracturing his tidy put politically to the test the place where there seems to be the greatest scepticism about the year and i was in eastern europe. Let's especially in public opinion surveys. There's very very little competence in it. As your fractures one way potentially fractious italy becomes part of this more eastern oriented and again sometimes called populist alliance but that includes places like poland and hungary. If originally this was about france and germany there was at least the possibility another new divisions in europe could be part of the battleground there. It leaves pulled east not west. I i think the general east west element to the internal difficulties european union has the river and that obviously also i has implications for the eu's external relations not least with russia whether it's clear disagreement between the eastern european member states and to to some extent france and germany. I think that if you're sitting in eastern europe a new look at what happened particularly actually in hungary during the financial crisis where there had been quite a lot of private debt basically run up in in euros on the european central bank basically wasn't interested in engaging with hungary's financial difficulties in any way in hungary ended up going to the i._m._f. Alone. I think he's going to be quite difficult to imagine any situation. Russian in the foreseeable future hungary and poland are going to be joining the era and i do think though as particularly hungary's case that destroys was built stop by what happened to hungary joined the financial crisis and that does pros problem for the european union as a whole because it is now clearly going to continue to be a multi-country union even with if and when britain leaves the european union and that in some sense means that kohl's roles vision of as a symbol of the united europe con actually be realized now the position of italy in this is is complicated obviously because on the one hundred was a founder member of the european economic community the one government back in eighty seven who initially supported the french government with the italians mystery in some sense why that they thought the italy could live under a monetary union but that was sort of french-italian <unk> access against what they saw as german monetary hegemony within the community on that italy's not been able to maintain an alliance is with france over monetary union questions in recent years particularly under macron's presidency you can see on made some attempt to ally with the southern european governments when he came into power in two thousand twelve not twenty effect so where does that leave italy italy looks like it's got people in the government who on kind of like flirting with alternative ideas but they clearly got no strategy about how to realize them or how to take italy out the era so i still think that's quite difficult for italy to form alliances with poland and hungary in particular the impossible question to finish finish. There is a recession coming always recession coming at some point. There's going to be more pressure on this system. It leaves one potential flashpoint. Do you have have a sense of what the others might be a where the ultimate flashpoint might be of it was grease a few years ago. It's unlikely to be greece again. I think the flashpoints germany because because i think that there was going to be very considerable pressure when that recession comes to go back to quantitative easing and dragging was able to do that i think think make that move under quite specific set of circumstances including that there were certain uses to germany will particularly the german finance minister so i moved on schobul even though it was critical of q._a..

"This is what if global coin. What if libra became the I could see out what there's no? If there's no Vig going to the banks, it became a dominant form of payment. It's how you do in an I we use pay pal. We have international hosts we you. We have to use. It's easier for us to use pay pal to support is interesting on this. Yeah. For sure. I'm sure there's enough revenue to go around. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to get something out of it. But, but to me, this doesn't strike me from at least, certainly for Facebook's point of view as either a pl- economic play. Like we're gonna make a lot of money on this. Although they might have a hand in every transaction going forward. That's Amazon's plan. Right. And I don't think this is a privacy thing. I think that's missing the poll point of this. If you say all Facebook's just doing this, so they can get more information about all transactions. I think this is a power play. I think this is Facebook saying who needs a government who needs banks. Imagine being paranoid Davinder. No, I think I think that's probably a good way to look at it. It's to me, it's a little less scary than something like the portal that they, you know, they're, and I should point I have I have two of them, which because. Well, I thought I need to talk to the other one. It makes us which is good tech. But probably came at the wrong time for them. Whereas this like, yeah, it does seem like a power. It does seem like how can we be a global superpower? What if we what if we didn't need banks? What if we could just manage our own ecosystem, you know, it's preparing us for the world of the future, where we're all living in VR, and just buying stuff digitally. He'll make sense. Yeah. And I guess I'm not the only one is paranoid, because the French government has already said, we're investigating and Facebook is going to have to go to congress next month to explain explain yourself Facebook, because there's some, I think reasonable concern in government about what is Facebook up to. So maybe I'm not completely paranoid. Although lately, getting getting grilled by congress is just kind of table stakes for anybody who wants to play this game. Yeah, I thought it was interesting on that the congress investigation articles that I've been reading that it's both. It's a sort of a bipartisan suspicion of this plan, and you can you can easily see what, what in what sort of stakes that each side is thinking about one side's thinking about the sort of social and data privacy. Implications on one side is thinking about, but banks. Stepping in and taking over banks. So it, it is interesting that it is a bipartisan concern. That's, that's a the expressed here if you think about banks, not just central banks national bags but just Bank commercial banks that really are an important constituency to congress. I would imagine. They spend a lot of money on congress. Congress has a certain sense of responsibility to banks, and I'm sure that's what some of this is. And and, and honestly. I, I some so torn about this because as you probably gathered, I'm not a fan of Facebook, but at the same time anything that dissenter mediates, especially banks. I think that's a good thing. So I don't know what we're gonna come down on this one. Well, it's so easy to, to sort of fast forward a few years and imagine that, you know, the kind of investigation that's been going on over the last couple of years about the Russian involvement in the two thousand sixteen presidential election than the campaigns. It's so easy to imagine a couple years down the road, this whole obfuscation that happens as a result of this all happening through Swiss Bank. And with a, you know, there's some data trail, of course. But yes rail instead of subpoenaing Deutsche Bank. Who are you going to subpoena, if it's Lieber coin? Yeah. That is a real concern..

"Fiat Chrysler of Italy has ended merger talks with Renault of France. The French government owns a lot of Renault and Renault has a separate alliance with Nissan of Japan. And it was all very complicated. The BBC's Andrew Walker's in London. Hi, andrew. Hello, david. There were high hopes for this merger. The idea was, maybe this could signal a kind of coming together in Europe, the way we think of Airbus, being a multinational, European consortium, but it was not to be well that suddenly the way it looks at the moment. The reason that this fellow Paul was because the French government, which has a fifteen percent stake in Reynaud simply for more time now according to the finance, but it's a brutal, the envy reason hails from more time was because he wanted to ensure that the Japanese Makinson Nissan, who has a slightly smaller shareholding in was on bold and the signs that they were going to abstain at the vote, quite surprising. I think for many people that fit Chrysler so rapidly decided to call the whole thing off. So I don't think you can completely discount the possibility that this. Idea might be revived. But for the moment, at least, I certainly have to conclude that it is the released. Dp Dumond, the BBC's Andrew Walker.

The thing was absolutely from the Wall Street Journal. Just absolutely a joke and how poorly maintained it was. And then you have these billionaire Frenchmen like Louis Vuitton LV giving tons of money. And then you've got these clowns protesting that too. Well, because in France, it's like it's like what beta wants to do here and Elizabeth Warren at all. They wanna make it. So that we have like nine weeks year mandatory off three day weekends. And you know, whatever and some rich person that owns the American version of Louis Vitton can pay for it. Until we get all that and free health care and free tuition, free everything. Gosh, darn we're going to be upset. But the irony of sadness of a second nation not taking care of it's one of its most important things, the irony and sadness of a second nation revering something, by the way crying out and saying oh my God. Who am I got really? Well, you don't care much about him but uses when things burn down. Interesting observations. From me. From one little person over here or there. Eight six six ninety redeye that's eight six six nine zero seven thirty three thirty nine. And let's go to max in Palo Alto. California been waiting patiently max closer. Hey, Chris, you know, that Norodom Notre Dame thing is not just a fiction. That's a lot of us have that. Thank you. I'm glad to know that I'm not as bad as I've been, you know, I've been I've been self flagellating let the Catholics living myself over here. Go ahead, sir. Hey, listen. You're earlier you were talking about the cartels. And and and how it's in their interest to bring people across the border, and I don't agree with that. But what it made me think of? And I I've thought about this for a long time. I would like to see us focus. Let's pretend we're gonna run Boorda battleship old Iowa class battleship, and I gotta shit my targets, I gotta really charters correctly. I don't wanna be shooting at a secondary or tertiary charter on his own a shoot out something that I think is the primary target. Let me explain. Yes. The way I see it here in California and the one party state of California, the coastal reefs and everybody else. Yes, we got they they are owned the politicians in this state are owned by Google Disney. Apple I mean, I look at the house of representatives speaker house, the speaker of the house of representatives Nancy Pelosi flying on corporate jets go into their retreat. These politicians are doing their bidding. And so when when I when I think about it. Always buying influence. It's not the the the drug cartels buying influence in the congress to influence our laws or to prevent our laws being enacted is members of congress. And we've got them here in California. We've got them in in your state of Texas. Arizona New Mexico, southern New Mexico. Governor today called out the cops on that on the bed. The guy who was trying to you know, indefens- the that's the the militia people on the board in defense. He is a felony. He's not allowed only got far. I don't know about you. But I support felons not have firearms. Yeah. With young with you there. Arms, and my brother, and and the first amendment is unequivocal in second amendment anniversary moment is unequivocal. But anyway, go ahead. Yeah. Look the way I don't have the best word for it. But I describe it as a global corporate state that is buying influence. I see that when we get on the radio, and I hear you me everybody else. They talk about what's happening is we're being divided and we're being divided because they're bringing any legal Elliot's. They're hiring the H one Bs. They call us racist. When we want to build a wall while they're building walls around their their palatial mansions like Nancy Pelosi, and what's happened. We're we're being sucked into kings. They are dividing us. So then what should we do? We got you know, like one get the black guy called earlier who you are you're ragging on them. And I kinda got it. But I know what we need to stick together. Guys. We need to really focus those guns like on the battleship, New Jersey, whatever's on what the real problem. Okay. Okay. Yeah. Okay. I got unity. I tried. I couldn't didn't you hear try to have unity with the guy. Commonality of being Christians. He couldn't do it. At that point either roll over and like like like like my little five pound five point one five point one pound while east roll my back because they please pet. My little belly here. Or is. So I mean, but no. But I I love what you said though, about all your your stuff about the Google and flying the jet and all that you had me at Hello. Okay. Let's go to Anthony in Alabama.

The down in Montgomery Montgomery, Alabama. I. Wait actually crossed my Cajun with my Obama. Good. Bridge is on fire. What? Oh, you know.

And then every time they run these maps these maps overlay each other with the eagles. Now, I know that Alexander customer Cortez says that if we give one of these people shot, it's abuse.

A number of French twitch and YouTube channel producers have rent bended together to organize lube home. They battle. Which is a Frenchman kind of funny.

So so the idea here being that while the government is doing its own events to to to extend the debate and have discussion about how France should work. This was an effort to kind of bring in younger folks, YouTube creators, what what did this end up being? Yeah, I think what was noteworthy in this. It was a eleven hours of debate. With members of the actual cabinet of the government, not the president himself. But the prime minister also took part in some of it. And the interesting part was that there were a lot of actual content creators from YouTube aimed at young people. Some political some not political at all there were a twitch dreamers, and you know, citizens students high school students cetera et cetera. And so this is this is really an effort from the from what I understand from those twitch YouTube channel producers to get the youth interested in the debate about the future of the country. Now, whether or not it was an exercise in in PR for the government, which some people have said, I think the initiative is interesting to to go where the young people are so on a scale of from Hello fellow teenagers to hey, that's cool. This fall. I think the the format and the form was very cool. And I will let the substance of it to the appreciation of each person who will probably appreciate the differently depending on their political leanings. I think the format works surprising.
