"A NASA flight surgeon hollow ported to the International Space Station last fall in what's now being described as a world first demonstration. Doctor Joseph Schmidt used a Microsoft HoloLens connect camera and custom software from AXA aerospace to have a conversation with European space agency astronaut Thomas pesquet back in October onboard the ISS. NASA, writing about the achievement earlier this month, called it the first hollow portation handshake from earth in space. And quoting science alert. Unlike traditional holographic projections that appear to hover in the air for anybody to see, hollow portation requires the use of an augmented reality headset, such as Microsoft's HoloLens technology for the wearer to be able to perceive and interact with the remotely captured individual or individuals who are filmed with a multiple camera setup in their actual location. For this conversation, the headset so that he was the only person among the ISS crew and doctor Schmidt's team who got the full picture of what was going on, seeing Schmidt and his team appear holographically in the space station. Enabling two way hollow portation interactions will be the next step in both Microsoft and other competitors evolutions of this technology, as well as perhaps streamlining or getting away with the need for headsets altogether, and continuing to downsize the cameras and other hardware required. But hey, this technology is pretty new, so of course it's going to be cumbersome, limiting and expensive for quite a while. But the fact that this happened at all and that the technology exists is pretty dang cool. Doctor Schmidt said in a NASA statement quote, this is a completely new manner of human communication across vast distances. Furthermore, it's a brand new way of human exploration, where our human entity is able to travel off the planet. Our physical body is not there, but our human entity absolutely is there. It doesn't matter that the space station is traveling 17,500 mph, and in constant motion in orbit 250 miles above earth, the astronaut can come back three minutes or three weeks later and with that system running, we will be there in that spot live on the space station. And Schmidt adds that with haptics integrated into the AR, the possibilities extend even further. You could be working on some complex technology and hollow port the designer in to work on it alongside you. And continuing from NASA, quote, hollow portation and tools like it could have great implications on the future of deep space travel. As plans shape up for missions to Mars in obstacle to overcome will be the communication delays that are present during the travel to and from Mars. A delay of up to 20 minutes each way will present a unique challenge to communication, whether through simple radio transmissions, video streams, or new methods such as hollow portation. Communication is critical, whether for medical or mission support reasons, or staying in touch with family members, the crew will need to be connected with earth and mission control no matter where humans explore. But there are also direct applications here on earth, whether in other extreme environments, such as Antarctica, offshore oil rigs, or military operation theaters, this type of technology may help people in such situations communicate, bringing people together no matter the distance or environmental challenges. The possibilities really do seem endless. Plus, you got to love any technology that gets us closer to the world of Star Trek, which of course was top of mind for the crew during this hollow portation conversation. Doctor Schmidt himself in his AR pixelated glory was captured flashing the Vulcan hand gesture for the camera, really.

"Refuses to die. CNET got its hands on the new magic leap two, and they say, hey, magic leap is making progress. This device has a notably larger field of view. Lenses that condemn the real world and impressive spatial audio, although it doesn't work with glasses on, you can't put them over top your glasses, and also there's the whole question of, what do you use this for? Quoting CNET. Magic leaps vision has changed a ton, new CEO Peggy Johnson formerly vice president for business development at Microsoft. And before that, an executive at Qualcomm has pivoted the company into a business focused one mirroring the goals of Microsoft HoloLens. Alongside this pivot, there's finally a magic leap to arriving by the end of this year. The magic leap two headset I wore is relatively similar in concept to the original. There's a pair of goggle eyed glasses which unfortunately don't work over my own prescription glasses. They still tether to a processor box, which is large and hums loudly as it clips onto my belt, it uses an AMD based processor this time which Johnson says is more powerful than the previous Nvidia based chipset, and there's still a handheld wireless pointer style controller. It's not phone connected like Qualcomm's upcoming AR glasses. It's stand-alone, but with that hit pack as part of its package. All of these parts feel upgraded. Plus, the magic leap twos field of view is notably larger, showing more holographic objects in front of me in a taller, wider area that isn't as cut off on the sides, but the most notable thing is a feature I've never seen before on any AR headset or glasses. The lenses can dim the outside world becoming a pair of blackout sunglasses that AR can display on top of. My first demo showed a familiar holographic situation room type experience, a common style of demo for AR. I gathered at a similar roundtable for a HoloLens two demo back in 2019 at Microsoft's Redmond headquarters two. The demo, which was made using satellite data and meant to represent a potential use for how AR can represent large scale map data and multiple virtual monitors at once, turned the roundtable into a 3D landscape. While the monitors on the walls provided extra simultaneous streams of data, one thing I immediately noticed was that the wider viewing area allowed me to get closer to the table while still seeing everything on it. The taller viewing area also meant that the stuff on the walls would still be visible when I was looking at the table. Field of view has been a big limiter in AR glasses, existing hardware has a restricted zone where AR effects can appear and outside of that box. They disappear from view. VR headsets avoid this problem because they have larger fields of view and a goggle like blinder design. And they don't have to worry about blending the real world with the virtual. Snap's first pair of AR glasses has a very limited viewing area, the first magic leap was better. And the Microsoft HoloLens two was better still, magic leap two is the best of all, but still not perfect. A second demo showed me another spin on the dimming effect, a giant 3D luxury watch floated in front of me in the office demo room, but with dimming activated, it created a halo around the watch and blocked out the real world from behind it. The watch face didn't seem ghostly anymore, and the whole object seemed more solid. My videographer walked behind the floating watch and I didn't see him. AR already has a way of making virtual objects hide behind real ones, a technique called occlusion that happens by mapping the real world with depth sensing cameras, but this dimming effect allows real world objects to slip behind virtual ones, too. Dimming had an uncanny effect at times almost theatrical, like I was somehow entering a museum exhibit that focused my attention to an object like a spotlight. But magic leaps goal for dimming is to make it easier to see a central projections in bright light or outdoors or to focus and eliminate distractions when using it for important work. The headset is positioned as an enterprise and training tool, not for entertainment this time, but Johnson says that future possibilities for installations and live performances could be next steps similar to the way magic leap originally birthed a number of fascinating art and theater projects. And then quoting from the conclusion. I got the feeling that magic leap two is a small but key step for a company that, like many others, is aiming to solve the riddle of AR glasses. Johnson sees magic leap twos much narrower targeting of industries like manufacturing medicine and defense as a way of testing the waters while the headset can eventually be made smaller, lighter, without needing that big processor hip pack. I do believe at some point down the road, we'll circle back to consumer, but it's going to be when the devices are more fully integrated and lightweight, and we can make the field of view even bigger. As every other company tries to solve AR glasses slowly and Microsoft seems ready to pivot away from its HoloLens two to possibly phone connected devices, is magic leaps tech going to seem advanced enough or trapped on its own island. And finally, today, this is the most out there startup I've heard about in a while. Forget about drone delivery, a California startup.

"Lots of companies are trying to stake their claim in the metaverse. The virtual realm where proponents say people will work, play, learn, and shop in the future. But to actually build the augmented and virtual reality tech that'll let us enter the metaverse, they need workers with particular sets of skills. And that's led to intense competition over the top tech talent. So far, one company that's taken a hit in this battle is Microsoft. It's augmented reality team has lost around a hundred people over the past year. Many went to Facebook parent meta. So what do these defections mean for big metaverse players and small companies that want to part? And how could it affect the development of the metaverse itself? Here to talk about it is our tech reporter Aaron Tilly. Hi, Aaron, thanks for being here. Yeah, thanks for having me. So Microsoft has lost a number of people in its augmented reality division over the past year. What does Microsoft have been building that's made its employees so attractive to other companies? Yeah, Microsoft was really an early pioneer in augmented reality, which is a subset of the metaverse. They first announced in 2015, the HoloLens, which was their AR headset. They really put their stake in the ground really before anyone else. There were a few startups out there doing random things, but it was way before the curve in terms of broader interest in this kind of technology. And it was now growth of some Xbox gaming work, but they really positioned it since then for more workplace and productivity use cases. So where does work on HoloLens stand now? And what do these departures mean for that? So yeah, since they first launched in 2015, they've since come out with a second generation in 2019 and it was quite a gradual change over the first generation HoloLens, the field of view where you could see the augmented reality experience was slightly widened, but since then not a lot of breakthroughs in the actual hardware, Microsoft has been leaning a bit heavier recently in the software side. They've created something called Microsoft mesh, which is sort of their play on the metaverse and augmented reality at the application level that people can sort of interact between devices. So from a hardware standpoint, it's been very slow. Progress has been pretty limited. And I'd say the biggest thing for them as well is a big U.S. Army contract that they won in the March of 2021. It's a deal that could be worth nearly $22 billion over the next decade, helping U.S. soldiers use augmented reality to navigate battlefields or see through smoke and do all sorts of things on the field. So that was huge for them and they'll be coming out with new HoloLens just for that for the U.S. Army that are more rugged. But with all these departures, this is going to be quite challenging according to former Microsoft employees. I spoke to their quite stretched thin and not getting the kind of funding they need. As Microsoft said anything about these departures and what it'll mean for HoloLens? Yeah, Microsoft maintains that they are in a leadership position and they sort of are, if you look at what's out there in the market right now, but that lead might really kind of go away once we see others come into the marketplace. Microsoft says that employee attrition is a pretty regular occurrence across many teams, but they say they're happy with the progress they're making and they'll be fine. Okay, so that's Microsoft. Let's talk about the place that a lot of these employees are going to, of the HoloLens employees that have left over the past year, more than 40 have joined meta formerly Facebook. How is it attracting them? According to the people I've spoken to have joined the company, they're really attracting folks by investing in this space. They're really showing that they're willing to pay people quite well and that they are really committed, what seems like over long term Mark Zuckerberg, the cofounder CEO of Facebook, he says that this metaverse space is the future of the company and it makes these former Holland's employees excited to be at a place where an entire company is shifting directions and really coming together around what they want to be building. Whereas with Microsoft, there was a bit of uncertainty around the commitment to this technology. Does it tell us anything about meta's plans that it's bringing in all these workers for augmented reality when it already has a pretty well-known virtual reality headset the Oculus? Yeah, some of the first instances of metaverse, I think are really popping up in areas like virtual reality that is where the market is or you're selling almost 10 million headsets a year with 75% market share and for Oculus. But augmented reality where you're placing digital objects all around you in the real world, that scene is the much bigger opportunity here and meta is saying that they're going to make that kind of technology as well. So we're talking about two pretty big tech players. What about smaller companies or just other players that are trying to get in this space? If there's not that many workers, what do they do? Yeah, I think it's not just Microsoft and meta Apple has big ambitions here. There are reports that they'll be coming out with their own AR headset very soon. Any big player in technology has some sort of strategy here. And like with any new technology, once the Giants take an interest, they're going to be acquiring they're going to be paying giant salaries and for startups that means they're having to fight for the right to have a place in this market. So much of the modern Internet that we're used to was developed by startups by smaller scrappier companies, the metaverse is sort of pitched as the next generation of the Internet. So should we be thinking that this might not take the same shape if it's big companies that are really going to be the ones shaping what the metaverse looks like? Yeah, it's a really good question so much of technology is really plays for the big players with the money, the market power, the market share, and it sort of existing markets that they can now translate to new markets. I think that says a lot about this current era of tech where really the Giants dominate and will probably dominate the next upcoming markets, what room is there for startups, especially in areas like hardware, where you're having to expand and have control over your supply chain. It's really difficult for startups to make any sort of progress here. So it really lends itself to the Giants that are already out there. All right, that's our reporter Aaron Tilly.

Leno's had developed the sultry inevitable. Lena Horne singing style. How for which she is known throughout the World Lena's first big break as a singer came in nineteen forty when she was hired by Charlie Barnet? Who at that? Time was the leader of one of the swing. Era's top big bands after touring with Charlie Barnett's ban. Lena artistically. Psychologically season struck out on our own. Tom I in Manhattan's famed Cafe Society Downtown and then in Hollywood there she was discovered by an MGM talent scout who promptly signed her to a long term contract. Her film debut was far from auspicious considered to lie for Black Parson too dark for for white parts. She was relegated to musical scenes that had no connection with the plot and consequently could easily be cut from reels earmarked for distribution in the south. She did over star in a couple of all black movies. Stormy weather in nineteen forty three and cabinet in the sky. Also in Nineteen forty-three Lena Horne was Hollywood's first bona fide black glamorous Dr the first black actress not cast in stereotypical made the and mammy roles to black across this nation. This may assemble black achievement and pry doing World War Two. She became the pinup thousand thousand. Black G is many of whom went into battling jeeps tanks and aircraft named after her considered by many as the most beautiful woman in the world. Zero Lena takes a beauty in stride. I spoke with Lena on tour with her one woman show and asked her about her status as a living legend laughs. Ask that question yet. And everybody needs. City has asked me I think I think what you really mean is survival aval. I've been around long time. Yeah feels good to live this long. I I hope that My youngest granddaughter.

Tips for Building a Compelling Product Vision by Amazon Sr Product Manager

"So tonight I want to tell you how to create a compelling product vision and a little bit about myself. I'm a senior product manager at Amazon I am the The technical variant. That just means I. I don't code every day. I like coating sometimes but I typically work on a more technical product so for me that includes is a lot of real time systems that includes machine learning that includes a lot of algorithms and data science And also thinking about technology patterns that would scale across the world across a variety of features. So that's me. I also worked at Microsoft before I worked on a thing called Hololens. It's like an augmented reality helmet that you put on your head kind of cool but I was very something. Different and customer reviews is all me now all right. Let's get right into it. I can guess actually which product is reviewed. Right here has forty two thousand reviews and he guesses no not me I hope by rating is that good but any idea what this is saying. It's the echoed dot actually and it is one of the most reviewed but not the most reviewed brock on Amazon so yeah and pretty good star rating all right so this is what I'm talking about. Today I broke it down to five topics. So here's we're GONNA do. Why chose this topic? This one's a little bit Near and dear to me as well L. Among the many other topics I chose. I WanNa talk about what it means to be a visionary There's this mean about what it means to be a visionary that I just I wanNA on a day so I wanNA talk a little bit about that I'm GonNa talk more specifically about how you create a compelling productijn and what that looks like in a very step by step process us in a talk about how to communicate your productijn which a lot of people forget about but it's actually really important. That product vision is worth nothing. If it's only in your head talk about communication and I'm also GONNA talk about how to make it a reality I'm GONNA spend a little bit less time on that because today is all about the vision but if you can't execute get your product vision you know you're not going to go anywhere alrighty. Let's do it why I chose this topic so last winter I met with one of my peers at work and and I'm gonNA keep them anonymously. I've been really tough day. And I said Hey will accumulate a coffee talk about something and I could tell something was wrong because I like didn't look very happy And you know maybe their dog died you know. Maybe they had a tough conversation with their manager. I really don't know but I need to talk. And we went to starbucks blow my building and and this is what she said to me not the exact words but basically this she said. I can't come up with any good ideas from my product. I'm not a visionary and I'm not creative how do you come up with their product vision. I feel like giving up as a product manager every day because of this and I didn't really know what to say to that actually I it took me a while to think of like. How do I actually do that? Like I knew in my head how I did it but I had a tough time really describing her in that that moment so I decided to talk today because of that conversation that I had and I realized that my own career. I wish someone had given this talk to me before I started because I made a lot of the mistakes That many people make when creating PROC vision and these are. This is a struggle. I think many product managers go through in in their career. And I WANNA help everyone here or who watches online or or anyone who gets exposure to this in some way Not have to feel like this. You know being tears feel like they can't be a product manager So here's why here When I worked at Microsoft this is the new hot thing And just to put it really simply. Here's how you might think about growth mindset with respect to a product vision the fixed mindset and the other hand is like I'm born with this ability or or you know I I can't learn you know I'm stuck. I'm not creative. I'm not a visionary. I'm not going to be able to come with the right ideas to leave that to someone else That is the mindset that my friend had when she came to me at starbucks and told me that she couldn't be product manager and I think a lot of people in here like to say that they don't have that mindset and you may have a growth mindset in other areas of your career but when it comes to being a visionary I find that many many people actually have this mindset and they may not realize it I say you know what I'm not a visionary. I'M NOT GOING TO BE Steve Jobs. I'm not going to be on And it's good to check accu self and say do I think that way. Or do I think I have the potential to be a visionary on the other hand we have the growth mindset and you can guess it's the opposite of the fix mindset. Basically you believe that you can overcome any challenge by working at it the potential to do something not something. You're born with the F. to stick with it work at it and then you can choose whatever you want So growth mindset is a is a great way to think about any problem in your career but for being a visionary. I think there's a really important concepts concepts and you should check yourself and say which. which viewpoint do I have And I think of you are here at this talk today. I hope you have the second one. The growth mindset. Because you're the first I want I'm not going to be able to help you honestly So please think about what it means to have. A growth mindset. Does anyone you know. Put on their Lincoln their thought leader. Did anyone give a huge talk. About what their their next big idea was. Anyone might be an aspiring visionary. Nobody okay I expected zero for that one too. Oh Yeah so not. Many people describe themselves as a visionary I think are some very good reasons for that and part of that is because a lot of who who we think is a visionary are people like this so i WanNa know all six people here. I'M GONNA get zero people now six but some people might know five life. These are some things that I hear a lot about what a visionary is and I would say. They're all wrong so one of them. I'm is that I can't say visionary 'cause I just don't have those crazy ideas. I don't know the Moonshot. I'm not making flying skateboards or self driving cars And there's this out there that in order to be a visionary you have to have these wild outlandish ideas and you have to go on a long walk on the weekend by herself and come home and have his is magical idea that you've come up with And we just keep perpetuating that music over and over again but in reality like coming up with the vision really doesn't work that way. Another one is that visionary seemed to know everything about the future you know they know it'll happen and one hundred years from now fifty years from now even ten years from now and the reality is is that humans are really really bad at making predictions about the future So most successful visionaries aren't actually that good at predicting the future future because nobody is So if you thought. That's a visionary. was I encourage you to check that one out And reconsider

Microsoft Explanation of the Future of the Windows 10 App Platform

"So there's this fluid framework which which we gotta talk about a little bit but is Microsoft trying to make DWP APPs anymore. Are they trying to make sixty four bit apps arm are they just like saying screw it. We're only GONNA do classic classic Windows APPs because that's what they decided with one note or are they making Web APPs. Are they doing all the above. Tom Just please tell me the answer so I can stop wondering if new damaged but as as as anything mark sold is far more complicated but I I think the overall phase that the udub stuff I was for a different era is for when they go off. The phone will run on exploits. They had this vision of an APP third everywhere hence universal. So so do you have any. PM sorry for the universal windows platform pro fights platform. Yeah and so the idea was you could write once run anywhere but it's you make an APP you put it in the win in the Microsoft store and it'll work on windows tablets windows laptops and also windows phones and you can you can inex- votes on hold on an xbox and Hololens and and You know it has a consistent across all these things and it's a beautiful dreamworld and they got they got you know tens of developers to do it and and so the majority of that dream has gone away by the phone. The phone is gone away. That was the key bridge and the stuff is just like yeah whatever and Holland still develop him. mm-hmm we'll see what happens The other part of it is that these things only run on windows ten and they had millions of people's to ease seven so to convince even enterprise up developers to re fat to their apps into this is just. This is not gonNA happen when it can't run on the vast majority desktops right. So I think that's kind of held held the legacy of of the enterprise and stuff we might not always wholesome back on everything because they were trying to appease everything for business just that's just the nature of their business And I think that's what we're seeing now so like the one stuff. They announced this week in the announced basically one note 2016 which is a desktop is coming back to life and it's going to get a bunch of features awesome. Yeah if you're not familiar. There's there's one twenty sixteen hanging around and then they made the new like WBZ basically version of one note that was like the future and like if you had a surface pro and you like tap the screen and it would open up that version of one note and like I think yeah and so it was like an. It's really nice. WPRO is like one of the the was in fact the APP that I recommended as the Best S. note taking AP Windows in general being one note best note taking APP especially for Cross platform and so I was expecting them. Okay well eventually. What they're GONNA do is they're going to get all office onto this new platform? It's going to be great They just need to add a few more features and maybe some stuff like fall by the wayside when they make the transition. And that's okay. Because life goes on but instead they just totally like backtracked and retrenched. And I said Yeah that things done. We're just going back to the old 2016 version of one note to go along with the old versions of office. It's very confusing. Yeah so they feel will they can His the magic obeys underlying Kobe's think they're going to bring a bunch enthuse cool new features. It's this old desktop right. But I don't really know what's going to happen into the new play. They say it's going to be still exist. You know y mice of loves having to APPS RAVINE IS Internet explorer edge. Yeah paps there's like Windows Mail and outlook proper outlook. So it's just a phase can be another one of those scenarios I and I love it but underlying with this is that a year ago I think it was. They said they were going to put their new touch friendly UW versions of office. This which are really nice as well. Those things launch in like less than a second they crazy basic. They just use them every day. It's not the word you used. Those are on hold and they were going to take us a win for you to the desktop and Web Yep and the section was one note until now so I feel like they are going to focus a hell a heck of a lot on the web for the stuff that they were trying to achieve review. WBZ original dream and everything else. I like you know the legacy and keeping their business customers happy desktop down for two allowing devs to just kind of go wilde dewey one in like that's I I think the thing now just do we need to do to get your APP store. Whatever yeah

Google Glass Returns--with New, Clearer Vision

"Business wards daily is brought to you by Dell. Don't miss out on Dell small business month celebration. Get up to forty five percent off select computers with Intel core processors, call eight seven seven by Dell to speak with a small business technology advisor today. That's eight seven seven b u y de l l for tech advice and one on one partnership. From wonder I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Thursday may thirtieth. Hey, remember, Google glass back in twenty thirteen. Google announced it had created a revolutionary product and augmented reality headset aware of computer with the power to change the world. Alphabet Google's parent company launched Google glass with all the fanfare, one would expect of a company racing into the future time magazine called the soon to be released glass. One of the best innovations of the year, and then the glass, shattered glasses were expensive and buggy and they solved a problem how to wear a computer on your face that no one had. Furthermore glass, featured a tiny video camera, right there in the lens prompting privacy concerns, the glass quickly became the object of ridicule. It was parodied on the Simpsons and the daily show after about two years. The product was withdrawn from the. Market. Well now Google's giving it a go again last week. The company relaunched Google glass with a few key changes at nine hundred ninety nine dollars. It's quite a bit cheaper than it was. Even so the company isn't trying to sell them to consumers these will be marketed only to business and professional users from warehouse workers to surgeons, the headset, which has a screen in one lens. That's where see lists instructions and watch training videos, all while keeping their hands free back when Google first launched glass, it wasn't just a brand new product. It was a brand new product category. No more goo glass will go up against a significant rival. You may have heard of Microsoft Microsoft's hollow hololens to has screens on both lenses and offers more features. But Google glass comes in a lot cheaper. A pair of Microsoft's smart glasses will set you back more than three thousand dollars. Google sees more clearly now how not to over hype. New product is. Relaunching glass more quietly than it did in twenty thirteen question is half a decade later is the market now ready for smart glasses. Well, maybe, so at least in the operating room and on the factory floor. From wondering this is business wars daily. Hey, if you like our show, would you see to it that you share it with a friend Senate tax, the tweet an Email? How about an old fashioned phone call? Thanks so much for listening.

And I think we're at a point right now where the government is saying we want the things that you're building we want you to be part of our modernisation efforts and within some of these companies. There's a sort of growing divide between the management of the companies, and what they want for their business and some of the people actually building this technology. The engineers who are working on these advanced systems that are in hot demand by the military and other government agencies. And we just saw this play out in a pretty meaningful way at Microsoft.

And basically they argue that this sort of crossed the line into weapons development. This was basically taking something that they had built and turned it into something that was designed to help soldiers on the battlefield kill other soldiers. Not what they designed to do. Right. Not their intent not what they were told. They were going to be working on and not something they were comfortable. With. Kevin thinking about this. It's kind of hard to imagine that the US military would not use US technology American may technology like this in warfare that seems kind of inevitable doesn't it? Well, right. I mean as long as there has been a US tech industry. There's been a partnership with the US government, and and with the military the original internet came out of a defense department project, and since then lots of advances in technology have been spurred by this collaboration between the Pentagon and Silicon Valley and a lot of these companies already provide technology to the military. I mean, a lot of military computers run windows operating system. But this was a sort of a bridge too far for these employees..

"On Justice. Hank weinbloom, Fox News. Onset at the mobile world. Congress happening now in Barcelona Microsoft took the wraps off an entirely new way to see the world. I'm extremely proud to introduce to all of you hollow ends to Alex kitman with Microsoft hololens to adapt you adapts to your hands and goes beyond gestures to give you the satisfaction of direct manipulation leading an experience. What if feels like for the first time to actually touch a hologram outside of the beefed up displays that will show an even more lifelike overlay on reality. The hololens to won't require any calibration between users. It contains two cameras that detect a user's pupil to adjust the images on the display one thing that didn't improve was the price the hololens to will sell for thirty five hundred bucks. But an examples that it's unraveling. It seems to be a better fit for business for now until prices come down to let us all be immersed in mixed reality with FOX on tech. I'm brett. Larssen Fox News. I'm Hank weinbloom and the word of the week award goes to the Oscar goes, it's time to open the envelope. And learn the secret to why they call it. Oscar, amazingly, no one knows for sure one story has it that in nineteen thirty-one a former executive at the motion picture academy. Margaret Herrick thought the statue looked like her uncle Oscar and the name stuck her uncle apparently looks like a golden naked man with no face another story. Former Hollywood columnist Sidney skull ski says he got fed up with actors taking themselves seriously. So he brought back old vaudeville bid where a comedian says to the orchestra leader. Would you like a cigar Oscar then Yanks away as he grabs for it? The Oscar they're being for cigar maker Oscar Hammerstein. My grandfather of the more lastingly famous lyricist who won an Oscar for this song. And Oscar for an Oscar thanking the academy with your word of the week. Hank weinbloom, Fox News. Fox on love with Ashley Papa they say time heals all when it comes to breakup, regardless of how long you've been together marriage and family therapist. Dr. Jane Greer has tips to help get over a break-up the healthy way. If you really are devastated and really need to get over this and move on its first role is to have no contact into stop following them on social media, try and really disconnect any contact or just seeing a picture of your accent. Social media can really set you back. And Grier says bring the focus back to you and your life. So that means, you know, making plans not just for the weekend. But give yourself something to look forward to something like a vacation a new class or doing something you weren't able to do when you were in the relationship. It's really about changing up the environments that you don't like just marinade in all the difficult feelings that you're having how you handle the break-up we'll make all the difference in how quickly and healthy you bounce back with FOX on love. I'm actually Papa. The dean's list with Janice. Dean UPS driver from North Carolina makes the dean's list for following his gut and becoming a hometown hero. Todd. Holland works in Ashby North Carolina as he was dropping off a package for one of his customers. He noticed that another package, which he had delivered a few days. Previously was still outside the front door. That's when he said he knew in his got that something was wrong. He began pounding on the door and yelling for an answer. When he tried to open the door and found that it was unlocked. He entered the house and found the homeowner lying on the floor. He then dialed nine one and waited with the man until paramedics arrived. He now hopes that his story will inspire other delivery drivers to show the same amount of care and attention to their customers a lot of these people that we deliver especially in these rural areas us the FedEx man in the mailman might be the only people they say during the weight, I tell them if you realize and get a gut feeling that something is wrong. You know, check it out because it it probably is. Thank you. Todd Holland for your great instincts. You made the dean's list. Janice. Dean, Fox News. From America's election headquarters. Democrats trying to woo early. State voters are hearing that when it comes to beating Donald Trump, we're desperate, but in early states in the last week potential democratic primary goers there are much more passionate about things like health care. What are you gonna do to offer quality healthcare to all Americans in South Carolina? Climate change is seen as a unique threat. I think our stay is very vulnerable with the rising seas ultimately people want presidential hopefuls.

"You played the mate ackward 's you could hear satanic messages that would command children your children to commit suicide and perform acts of violence on each other's the original Momo. Yeah. I mean, this thing is like this goes back to like, you know, obviously, there's a lot of political stuff and misogyny around witch-hunts. But it's the same kind of thing where it's like, you create hysteria. So that you can, you know, get something out of it on the other side in the in the case of like heavy metal music. It was just that. It led to degenerate behaviour kids who are in a heavy metal usually were also like smoking pot and cutting school, and you know, talking back to their parents, and you know. Sneaking out at night and going off in the fields to do whatever. And that's like, you know, if you don't want to encourage that you have to come up with some way of keeping the kids from engaging in that activity. So the best way to do that is to raise hysteria around. Parents now, I'm not saying there's some sort of like weird altruistic wave behind the Momo challenge where you know. Oh, you need to be more careful about what your kids doing online, and your Norring that very real problem. So we're gonna scare the bejesus out of you with his creepy bird woman with bulging eyes. That's telling your kid to go set started firing the kitchen. But you know, it's just everything old is new again. But also kids are I mean? It's similar to the TV thing. But it's different because kids are carrying these devices with them everywhere. They're watching video for hours and hours a day, some study show and TV just the kind of thing like just because I've been reading Michelle Obama's book talks about how she grew up friendly with Jesse Jackson's daughter in how Jesse Jackson was like on his his campaign to get parents, not let their kids watch TV, turn off the TV for two hours night into homework. Right. But that was it was kind of a finite resource. Then it's like, you could only watch TV verse number of hours, and then you had to go to school or outside or something on. Noel that to like other like a thousand shadows. But but I mean, you could just you could watch these videos anytime anytime, and what kids really should be doing. So of spending time on YouTube is listening to Judas priest albums. Yeah. Backwards Fatang messages, Lauren. Yes. Earlier this month. Momo told you to go to Seattle to visit Microsoft and see the new hololens headset tells a little bit about that set the place on fire. Yeah. So there is new hope lens out. It was formally unveiled at mobile world, congress excuse me, m WC this now called in Barcelona earlier this week we were not there on the ground because we had gotten the story in advance. I go to redden Washington saw the whole lens. I spoke to the designers behind it. I spoke without kitman who you're about to hear from shortly. The new hololens is undoubtedly an advancement in technology. If you were to look at it really quickly. You probably say ok looks like the same headset as before it's still a headset. Still pretty he looking along. If it was the first one the first one was twenty sixteen but it had been in development for many years before then in fact, Kippen likes to say that it really started with the development of connect because a lot of the sensor package, you know, or the center the technology ended up in an hololens, but the whole ends to is lighter than the first one. It's more comfortable to wear because it's been designed differently. It has. Has this new type of imaging technology, this patented optics module choosing something called Mems, which is micro micro electric mechanical systems, which.

It's delivered in two lanes at ten gigabits per second per lane that the cordo to be shorter longer. I don't know. I don't know if it's just more wires on the inside so two different paths instead of one single path. So to denote that they say well two times to instead of right? It's offer you some thunderbolt. Yeah. Vo sure. Do you have some with? But that's headache. Right now. Thunderbolt headache? Now, it's just got one more easy to understand name. And according to the verge they have some marketing named to like, there's super speed USB and super speed USB five five gigabytes or five gigabits bite spit. Then started on that. Yeah. I think this is. Oh boy. There's no standards committee is that like just decided we'll call it. Whatever we want to know, the USB, I f is the standards committee. There's two minutes on that can. And they have decided that instead of naming numbers keeping numbers the same. So, you know, the slower version could still be USB three point zero instead of three point two point, whatever revision generation, whatever like they keep changing the old versions up to the latest of the new version, but adding to the end of it, it's just confusing for the consumer, right? Like, I can't think of anything more confusing for the consumer then to change the specification that people have gotten used to and then at obscurity to it because you know. Yeah. There is a standards party body, and they just aren't doing a very good job as far as I can tell I mean, you could go from the iphone eight to the iphone ten which is an ex but you pronounce ten to. At least they didn't put an X at the end. And then everybody's wondering why why aren't just saying ten apparently version three point two was originally announced a twenty seventeen the fact that they're doing this. Now, basically says that somewhere soon the final release of this new spec is going to take place. So there's good news. There faster speeds coming to USB, you just might not know what you have until you test it out for yourself while while while did we lose you. We lost. Megan. So shifting gears a little bit from all that madness on Sunday. Microsoft held a big reveal event for his hollow lens to mixed reality hardware, the first major revision of the headset since version one released back in March of two thousand sixteen while hololens has always been I feel an intriguing piece of gear. It was limited in many ways that users couldn't help. But notice and point out time after time does the sequel address these limitations joining us to give his take on the lens to Scott Stein from CNN, welcome to the show, Scott. Hey, thanks. Absolutely. So you got the chance to experience a hands on demo or I guess face on demo of the new hardware on paper before actually putting the headset on were you happy with what Microsoft announced as far as the changes made the Holland's to compared to some of the limitations that we knew about the first headset. Well, I think if you, you know, thinking about it is it going to be headset for everybody. It's disappointing that that's not. But seeing what's out there in the landscape. That's probably not a surprise at this point. And and certainly like if you look at magically brothers where they're promising a lot of wild ideas will Microsoft showing was was a really rained in very sober business like approach, so I do wanna see more. But I think from a practical standpoint, I really liked that they're attending to some things that these headsets need. I think that the headset. Feels a lot more comfortable a love that it works with my glasses. The eye tracking was very easy to use even with glasses on. And while I think they need a controller at some point or some sort of feedback the focus to making things easier using their hands make sense for what they're doing. And I think that's something that this tech needs to be better at so I like all those focuses I think those are important and then getting the field of you bigger..

Let's look inside Microsoft's HoloLens 2 (The 3:59, Ep. 525)

"Three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben. I'm Scott Stein. Today. We're going to talk all about mixed reality headsets, and the Microsoft's hollow lens to which Scott got to check out in Microsoft's headquarters in Washington starting off the new headset is three thousand five hundred dollars is expected to come out later this year. Yes, that is a lot and it's targeted toward business customers, not consumers. That's the thing. So in that regard. Why is it important for consumers to know about it? Well, I don't think it's important for consumers to know about it. I think it's important for readers who follow tech to know about it. I think exactly know that this is not something you're going to buy and Microsoft's not even trying to fit that role. But it is showing where all OB connected things are beginning to digitally merge. It sounds kind of vague. But basically, a is also just as much about things connecting and and going into the cloud. Microsoft is a believer in. That a are is essentially that reread sensors, and so in that sense. It's interesting we're going to start seeing a lot more on phones and Holland's two does work with Android, and I was going to down the line. What was it like using it? So I've used all the big air headsets, and it feels a lot more comfortable than Holland's. I think feels more comfortable than magically. I think its biggest differences are that has I tracking that feels very fast and responsive the first Holland's didn't have it magically as I tracking. That's not implemented in everything. Explain to me actually notices where you're looking and it can if you start flooding your is around you'll you'll be able to see cursor if included to show like looking at this button and not only that but it can also do authentication for windows. Hello logging. So which they Microsoft does the most secure way. So being able to get your experience on a headset using that for for for logging in for security, I laugh because secures a lot of questions about logging in. It's a question of where the data's being stored and in the long run what how much is being tracked about you. Because Microsoft also says that this consensus of motions through your is weird. But also as hand tracking. So you're not using a controller, and that feels nice, but it also doesn't give vibrational or haptic feedback. So okay. That's they let's step back for a second and answer the question. What do you do with it three thousand five hundred dollars? Like what were the demos? Like, what is the supposed to be used for Microsoft demos were all really technical in the sense that they were just showing like here's here is it is that it works or here. It is that here's I tracking. Or is what it's like to pick up. Something is what it's like to collaborate with three people and see somebody standing on virtual hill. Nothing. And there's one demo that was probably the most practical which was about how to work in a shop where there was a real ATV or a model of they set up this tool shop with real objects, and I was guided around with a new app called guides. Got to they pointed with three D aero pick up this wrench now come over. Here is like a three d LEGO experience. And now, I'm learning step-by-step how to do it or feels like turn by turn maps for the real world was easy to follow? Like felt like this was the most like like really applicable use of like teaching you how to do something to fix a machine. It is interesting to follow. I found it was easy except sometimes they didn't seem to exactly blind point. And my question was if you make essentially the wrong turn on a map if I pick up the wrong wrench how to correct? Yeah. And right now, it doesn't sound like there's a there's a clear plan in place for that. Or they're looking at that. But I think that's a really big workplace question. Also, how much you absorb the information because I kind of blank out unturned by turn, you know, how much do does it change what it means to be in a workplace where you're getting that door. You're actually getting training. That's interesting as to just going on autopilot and letting the machine tell you there's. This. Yeah. So that's that's a knowledge absorption question. Which again, Microsoft is sort of sounds like from talking them looking into. But there are no clear answers yet. So let's let's also bring magically into this conversation. Interesting about magically, and you've also got test that out that's really trying to focus on entertainment. Right. Whether it's gaming or experiences. It is this is totally different than what we're talking about. Where this is like like a business environment. Microsoft is connecting through all their cloud, apps and windows ten and really wants us to be connected and Azure to be useful device magically has no answers for that. And is trying to look really artists and creative experiences challenge. There is that still a two thousand plus headset doesn't work with glasses. And but I appreciate that. They're taking wild creative ideas. I think there's I think they are the Microsoft's the egos right now, and they're sort of between the two you gotta fuse magically their graphics might actually be better based on the chip inside. But. But I think it's a little clunky to put on although the Holland's to headset is larger and more expensive. So no one's really crack the answer to this yet. But you can see that the kind of working on parallel to different elements kinda parallel pads in some way. Plus, there's if you wanna get really deep in the weeds, the Qualcomm announce that there are these USB plug in air VR headsets that are glasses that will work with five G, Qualcomm phones. Good grief. Yes. So, you know, who's using that, but those could drop the price and with things he put on almost like headphones that the phone all the powering for if that really is the case, and maybe like what magically has with tethered pack that becomes your phone. The headset gets less expensive. Maybe it's more like that for something that everyday everyday person would use I saying quotes, but we have to see who would use this. And why that's exactly it. Microsoft is field workers people who can't who have their hands. Otherwise occupied also questioned the military contract. So all of those things and high end industrial us. All right. Let's we're we're going to have to call it for now. But really interesting stuff if you want to read more about these stories check us out on CNN. I'm Ben FOX ribbon Scott Stein. Thanks for listening.

"Unless it's perfect for hosting podcast, at least or a television show because it kind of gets out of the way at fifteen degrees. And but it's big. And if I want to show something, I can, you know, I can tell a straight it, and I can do this, and I can draw pictures on stuff, and you know. No, personally, I just want the next hollow lens to let me do that strap to my face. And I really do hope that something that gets revealed one week from today. In fact, we'll be covering that as well. Ninety civic noon eastern time on the twenty fourth and mobile world, congress it's expected. Microsoft will release hollow lands now I see some steak too. But it really would be three. They just never released hololens to. All it. Hop lens. Mexican hololens. What do we know? What do we what do we think about this? Peter Bright's writing at ars Technica you guys. The public information. In terms of leaks is very thin. I just depend on my birdies between people I've heard from an hololens and from magically and other companies, and it's just basically a question of what the final decision is in the on the manufacturing line of a wider aspect ratio and faster chip and the amount of battery and how light and fluffy. It all feels it's really just going to boil down to which market they're going for whether enterprise or whether they're ready for going to that sort of consumer level by it at best buy kind of thing, I've really been believe it'll still be on the enterprise side because they hatched their bets initially with ends. They showed games they showed Minecraft they showed shooting things coming through the walls of late. They've really focused more on the windows. Holographic windows on business, applications air, traffic, control stuff like that. So you think they're going to double down on that and leave? I think you can look at their events where they've taken things like the surface tablet, and some of these other incredibly nice specialized devices that are for specific kind of us. To be their best device. And I think they want hololens to start out in that similar way. So that as that trickles down kind of like how the surface pro took them awhile to finally nail..

'Augmented Reality' could change the way we live

"Using augmented reality people would see reputation scores floating above people's head like, well, this guy's trustworthy, but don't borrow money from him because he's a cranky cuss, or whatever, and that would be floating over their heads as you walk down the street, kind of an interesting idea, you know, it's like having their Facebook page available to you all times. We're way off from that for this to work. Of course, first of all it has to look like regular glasses. I can't look like a bizarro visor from, you know, space invaders which most of these do even the hololens to effect. Most of them are have a big wire coming off your bag and either have to have a backpack with a giant, computer? Or you have your tether, do computer. I've seen a couple though that don't the clip something on your belt. I think ultimately and battery life, by the way has to be twelve hours fifteen as long as your phone right because you're gonna wear it all day. So if you could wear something that looks like just regular eyeglasses has, you know, all the information of the world, you could talk to it. It can superimpose on the world as you walk around informational stuff that it'd be useful. You walk up to an elevator. It says oh you need to go to the twenty. According to your calendar, your visiting a van Cleef, and our Pels that's on the twenty first floor, and you go up to the elevator. And then your assistant talks elevator and says, can you get me a elevator express to twenty one and the doors open in your glasses say go in here, and you know, maybe show little arrow, we don't be cool. That's kind of future. That's augmented reality. Needless to say, it's not only is it not here yet. But nothing anybody seen is even close. But it'll happen it'll happen. I think it will. I think that's going to be the kind of the next stage of computing, maybe ten years. People working really hard on it. Of course, one reason companies like apple and Google Microsoft are investing heavily is if that's the next thing in computing, you don't wanna miss it. You don't wanna be, you know, the the company that forgot Microsoft almost missed the internet. Everybody's learned that lesson.

"Under thirty actually because I'm going into age thirty season. Here you have thirty thirty four thirty to twenty seven and thirty are the ages for this rotation senior they're putting together trade pieces. So I hope so I hope some Marga shows health is back to form. They can move him. They're going to move Bumgarner at some point because last year was deal Derek hololens on a one year deal. So they're gonna move him. So Suarez and Stratton. I'll get back into the rotation. It just seem maybe they're thinking, well if we can fix drew Pomeranz. We can turn around and sell something. He was traded for Anderson Spinoza, obviously, they're not going to get a prospect necessarily of that caliber. But just don't forget that drew Pomeranz has seven hundred ten innings of three Ninety-two ERA and about a strikeout per inning that that's the only point I'm making here. And as late as he's going as free as he is. I could say something I mean, I think there is this idea because they have been Mench. Nd as a mystery team for Harper and Machado. I think they're honestly I think what they might have been doing was trying to drive up the price on Harper. So the dodgers them. But if for some reason, they were to land them, I think they're leaving that that option open to try to make a run this year. I think that would be stupid because the giants are just atrocious. I mean again that rotation you can magic fairy dust it into some health and say, okay is their cleanup hitter. There's something there. But then the offense is just not good. And I think they have three two really strong trade pieces and the bullpen with. Whoa Smith and Tony Watson. And then the third who could be good with Mark Milan-San. Scene. Yeah. Hit back on. He's always someone's always interested in San Dyson. So they'll they'll be able to flip them. So they should be able to make a lot of moves. I'm surprised I'm really done anything in the off season. I guess they're looking to make the moves in season. So we'll see what happens. I eighty does. Once once things get rolling with spring training and whatnot for the giants last move here. Even smaller than the drew Pomeranz really even though he's going to be more fulltime role. Brad Brock into the back. End of that cubs. Bullpen day. Don't have a set closer. I think Pedro Strope gets the job to start though with with brenham Maurel hurt. I think even Carl Edwards junior is next, but brand has caused before he's been a great reliever before he wasn't last year is brand Brock somebody that uses the potentially being an NL only fill. It can get a strike outs. Back is really the bottom line question because he had three great strikeout years over well over a caper inning. And then last year really came back to the pack and like I said had a pretty. Men season, the three fifty ninety are might not tell you that. But the one sixty which sure as hell does. So Brad Brock is he somebody who can get in stuff back because swing strike rate was still there. I think of the velocity returns. Okay velocity was down over or about a mile an hour from the previous season about almost half from the season before that. And when his vows balls operating at ninety five ninety five plus then we're looking at a guy that will miss the bats. And I think he if Voss's back I think he's got a chance to be back. So he's one of those guys that will be kind of checking in with Jeff Zimmerman. When in spring training when he he's got a monitoring those velocities, and we see yes, we start seeing it. We're seeing him start at ninety four ninety five in spring or in ninety four really then we'll know will gain by the time we get to late spring early summer. And that's an indication that we should buy in on Brock. Agreed. I think that that's that's a really worthy consideration there about the velocity piece. And then he is a saves potential candidate like he's in the mix, and you never know because it's a wide open bullpen there. Again, I would favor Strope as the front runner. I mean, he's just he's still not that expensive. Even though he's going to open the season with the job..

Systems in this case. It's it's it's really the same kind of brutal math. I mean, you just you have to go where the customers are. Okay. And I I had another insight from that transcript, I actually paid the ten dollars to subscribe to. To get it. Because that was the only to get it. So he also got asked something where he started talking about first line workers, you know, for me. That's like a big obsession of mine. I'm like this is where they're going. This is their next big untapped market that and they're kind of gearing everything that way, and you know, you know, Alex kitman has has continually said, you know, mobile phones aren't the Bill and all and he was kind of hinting like hololens was now I know what they're thinking on that front, and it's kinda crazy. So Sutton Adela said in response to another question, we've we've seen from some of the first line worker installations we've done at these big companies that some companies are giving them a hololens instead of a phone. I was like what? Yeah. I mean, those have to be pretty specialized use cases. So he said. I'm looking for his exact, quote is because of the productivity gains for service workers that it makes a lot of economic sense where they did not even give them a phone, but they're happy to give them a hololens. So this must be why they they keep thinking homelands is going to be what leapfrogs them into the thing that succeeds phones, there's no way that a whole ends anything succeed the phone. But now, I think we talked about this last week. There's obviously some really good vertical markets for hall ends. And it's been successful in those places. Right. And you know, when you say, the this term frontline is a front line of I I. Whereas Lynn workers. I always think of like the guy with the clipboard working at like, a clothing store or something. But of course, it's it's much more diverse than that. Right. It's the guy out on the telephone line is the guy in the factory floor. It's you know, whatever there's a bunch of these things..

"This is Red Eye Radio. Hello and welcome. He's Gary McNamara. I'm Eric Harley as we move into a Tuesday, Gary what in the world is going on. Well, I stop. Let's start out. We've done this a lot. We've done a lot recently. A perfect example of media bias. Not telling you the story by as we call it lying by omission keeping things out. And this was CBS news watch out CBS because a Casio Cortez is coming after you. Remember, your twenty twenty election team is to white. But this was this was the headline on Facebook. Rand Paul to have surgery in Canada for injuries from neighbor assault. The Senator who was condemned socialized healthcare will be treated in a country with socialized health care. Now that technically is true. The center who was condemned socialized healthcare will be treated in a country was socialized healthcare. Now, they're leaving out some important things that will get that would give you context. And all you have to do is go if I I don't know if they took that down the headline down because which criticized like crazy, but there were tons of liberal sane CC. He loves a socialized healthcare system because that was the impression that they got from the story. What did they leave out? The fact that he's not going to get free healthcare. He's going to pay cash and a clinic that's a private clinic. That's a private clinic. Not part of the socialized healthcare system is very well known hernia hospital shoulder in in in Toronto. My dad went there when I saw it. I burst out laughing as soon as I saw because if you read the article the articles, actually quite clear, the article does not make the point that the headline makes right? But is this because they know. That people just read the headlines and move on because you should see he's a hypocrite. He's using their socialized medicine didn't say that. In the headline read the comments when you read the comments, you'll know how many people read it, and how many people didn't read it terms of the article itself because. Right in there. It says the the surgeries related to the twenty-seven twenty seventeen attack Paul is scheduled for surgery at children's hospital. An adviser to Paul said the hospital is a world where is world renowned for the procedure known as a non mesh hernia repair and does a private entity that is not part of the Canadian system. This is a private world renowned hospitals separate from any system and people come from around the world to pay cash for their services, Paul spokesperson said that's in the first two the two of the first three paragraphs of the actual article. The had the headline. The Senator was condemned socialized medicine will be treated in a country was socialized health care. No, you're actually going to a hospital. Then in essence is the opposite of what is going on in Canada that happens to be in Canada that they haven't shut down yet. Well, do they write that if he's treated in the US he's also getting treatment in a country that has socialized healthcare? Because we do have Medicaid as true. So, you know, you're not gonna write that headline, of course. So it's important to show you the blatant media bias that exists out there this time from CBS not defensible. No, you can't defend it. It is we find out. This is a day where I went. Wow. I mean, it's almost every day. Now. That the stories that come out the left can't defend them. We will continue that coming up here in a little bit. When we tell you. The latest judge to uphold the contraception mandate. After another judge. Have upheld the contraception mandate, we will tell you. How the? I will use David French from the national review who used the lawless judges. We may also want to use a term that we used here because whenever these things come up. It is Trump that is called the F word, which is fascist. Now, we only use the word because the opposition has used the word consistently. It was not would not be how we would phrase it. But since they use it to attack Trump, we use the word to show, you how those opposed to Trump had a much closer mindset to fascism, and you can't debate it it's impossible to do. So because the judges are on and this is simply, and we'll just go over very quickly now get into it more in detail later on. But it's simply the fact that congress did not put in a contraception mandate. Congress said that the health and human services and Obama Care must provide preventative services, but they did not list with those services were they left it up to the executive branch to decide Obama's executive branch decided to include contraception and make everybody including religious organizations provide it. The executive branch did that not congress Trump came in just like in Dhaka Trump came in and said, oh, so it was an executive order. It was a decision by the executive branch. Okay. We don't like that. We are reversing it. We have the ability to do. So now, we know to our friends on the left who had no idea because the polls show the vast majority of Americans do not under does not understand the separation of power because they don't even understand the three branches of government. That's the vast majority of Americans. So we do feel like at times very few people understand what we're talking about. But when congress says, okay, we want you a general outline we want to give the executive branch gets to decide it. But when a new executive branch comes in they can change it and the court's ruling on this and stating it'll go to the supreme court, by the way, the supreme court. It'll be overturned because the executive branch has the absolute authority the Obama executive branch had the right to do what they did. Even though the dad the contraception mandate in they didn't have the right for religious organizations, which have been shut down. But the contraception mandate they did have the right to put in because congress gave them the ability to do that. We never argued that we argued the religious exemption for the contraception mandate the contraception mandate in itself is was was not unconstitutional. And so. The Trump administration can come in and say, it's all gone. The Obama administration put it in the any administration has the power to implement it. Then you believe the administration has the power to resend it. Right. That's how it works. It's not any different than Dacca to our friends on the left. You can't debate that that's non debatable. The consensus is in you don't have to like it. You don't have to like it now. But that's the way that it is. And so they can change the law if they want to change the law and take that away from the executive branch if they want, but this is where the judges as we have said before the judges are not fulfilling their oath to defend the constitution of the United States and the separation of powers, this is where the judges are closer to the fascist. Mentality that Trump is accused of that Trump then Trump has ever been. Because the judges have said, no, we get to have our say, no, you don't Congress's dictated that the executive branch gets to make the decision. The Obama executive branch decided to do one thing. They got voted out. The Democrats got voted out. Trump now is a Republican. He got voted in. He said, we don't like it. It goes. That's the way that it works. The next administration can do what they want on it. Next administration could go back in LA. Congress changes perception mandate is is back in other religious, the the, you know religious mandate was wrong, and they'll be overturned for for for that. But the contraception mandate in itself. Is not unconstitutional. And and so as we said with the, you know in the Obama administration. So we didn't even argue that point we believe it's wrong, we weren't pleased with it. We didn't call it unconstitutional. This is where the judges the liberal judges are the fascist mentality. That Trump is accused of those who oppose Trump are closer to the fascist mindset. Then Trump could ever be. You can't argue that to our friends on the left. It is impossible. The only way you can argue it is because you are completely ignorant as to the separation of powers and the three branches of government. And who does what? And we talk about the decisions that were made at the supreme court on other things on ObamaCare. As long as the law stands, it's constitutional for any administration to implement these types of policies or resent them. And her story. So they're in it's important to point out because the F word has been used so much against this president is very important to point out that those who oppose him. Whether it's antiques, we set deep is supposed to be antifascist. They're closer to fascist then Trump could ever dream of. Because what do they wanna do? They wanna shut down free speech that they disagree with. The opposition to Trump is much more fascist then Trump could ever be and everybody on the left if you're listening, you, you know, that's right. If you understand the separation of powers, you know, that's right. And you can't debate it. And when we brought this up, for example in the travel ban. How much opposition did we have how much pushback from the left, and we explained it. None zero. Which means if you're on the left, you understand that the judges that you support have the fascist mindset. Well, remember on the Iran deal? Do you believe that should be left up to congress? Yes. Do you think Trump should turn it over to congress? No. Remember that? Yep. The numbers dropped significantly. When you brought his name into it. Is there a fascist exemption because while it's okay for fascist because as Trump right, or if we have a cool guy in the office, then he can be a fascist because he doesn't, you know, he's really cool. These judges though there in robes, they looked pretty cool. Cool. So we can have cool fascist. You can be a fascist if you oppose Trump, right? You can have fascists in California. You know, they're not going to actually send people to jail. Lynn it shouldn't be in the law, but they're not gonna use it. Then take it out of the law, but they're not gonna use the gender pronoun law. So we'll get to that coming up here. Plus senators say talking is better than not talking about the shutdown but they're getting nowhere. One democrat introduces a Bill to temporarily open the government how one universities says it has to reinvent itself, which means move away from liberal arts left to shock. How can you do that? Nobody's coming here. Business has dropped dramatically. Yes. It's interesting because two polls out there one shows that America's blaming Trump and the Republicans more much more for the shutdown, but the other polling shows that support for a border wall has increased significantly over the last year, another call for the president to release the declassified documents. The Blasio the wrong people have the money all the all the wrong people have the money. Okay. Which by the way is the dumbest comment ever. The wrong people. I'm sorry. Did those people earn it? Yeah. I mean, that's why they steal it. They stole it the wrong people have the money, but the the the wrong people. Prefer example, Jeff Bezos is the wrong person have the money or did he depends on how the divorce goes?.
