Tiger skipping next week's tournament in Connecticut
"We can have a golf conversation without at least mentioning tiger I know that he's skipping the travelers championship next week do you think he probably sits out until we get much closer to the majors yeah I might do my initial follow along with the memorial the Jack Nicklaus tournament it's the middle of July so that's about three tournaments away from now they're going to play as you said next week the travelers championship which is in Connecticut then I believe the rocket mortgage event is in Detroit and then there's actually two weeks in a row where they're going to play at the same course and I at Columbus Ohio they had a tournament cancel in Illinois the John Deere classic so they moved it to actually be out at the course in the moral where Jack Nicholson's courses so they're gonna have to court two tournaments in a row with the same course my guess is tell you to play both of them or at least the official tournament called memorial that'll give him a tournament a month away before the PGA championship my guess is he'll play I I would bet him maybe he'll play twice before the PGA that one and maybe one more before they play the PGA pointed out in San Francisco this year that Harding park so a new course that I'm looking forward to seeing but that's still you know still early August so I would guess we'll see you may play twice as long as he's healthy and my dad is we'll probably see about that event at the memorial in mid

"Say, that again. So you're on a par five and you drill you. Drive in your next shot. You three would in your hand and you know it's to run out. You put one all the way out there, but you can't see it because there's a huge dip in the fairway, but you're walking up there being like all that ball, end up. You know it's either in the bunker or it's just outside on the lip, but if it's out on a limb, you have to now chip over that bunker. Kinda to get it onto the green. You gotta deal with all that Shit as you're walking up to that ball. Are you rooting for it to be out or in like now? Mentally saying. I'm rooting out. Out. I'm. Pillai Golden I'm just so unpredictable out of a bunker. It can take me one shot or can take me five, and it will use the other way I know. I sort of know what I'm getting myself into bunker shots and that's it's really just to me personally because I'm so bad in them that like it's I want to be out of every single. Hills I would say I have yeah. I have a A bigger miss from the bunker like because it's a big hard swing. That I have missed where I'd catch him lady, a decent amount of time, and that ball is fucking God later, so I feel like I. Don't do that as often from the from the fairway so I would rather be in the fairway. The bulk do that makes more sense. I like big hard song I hit. My driver is better and then adding. Adding a bunker able to take this you track, and aren't the worry about the delicate -ness of my dainty risk at somehow become the strong hulk like hands when I haven't legend my hand, it's the craziest thing only time I've become aggressive and mean and bad when I have a fucking little wed demand by the way I'll close it on this. I got a tip today. That could be like life changing with a wedge. It's hard to explain because I. Don't have a club with me right now, but basically I played with this guy. Phil Rockville links.

Do all the little tidbits and all the buffet of bits, and you want me to be a part of that, and you're gonNA roll out the red carpet before play for us to come I will be the biggest supporter of John Deere Classic, but until then I will continue to act as though it's in my back pocket beneath. Like I don't care about it. It's just something that's just. It passes me. WHO gives a fuck? I mean the. Win This tournament. which we've now were. We have to wait a year. I have no inside information, but I bet they roll out the red carpet for the four playboys whether it's in Iowa or Illinois I. Think they want us this. I liked Casey General Pizza. I appreciate that that makes me. Everything said about me before I don't care about you say. I'm all good. I've never had it but I predicted I will really really like it I liked it. It's not pizza. It's just it's a breakfast like we do. Breakfast Pizza temporaries to I like it's like pizza. It's like you got some eggs on it. You've got the cheese and got that bake man. That Bacon is something. That bank was controversial when. The review when we did the college football show, it's not to bake in. It's the perfect amount of bacon. Cheese eggs. It's so good, I mean I consider pizza because that's what is Dave. Took Your Dad's breath away right to bake any introduce. It stopped him in his tracks is the first time my parents had ever met my boss day. Porno I've been working for the company for four years, but obviously he would never be an island. They'd never been in New York City of Boston and yeah I introduced them and they. They met, and it was all nice and the review. It already come out as my dad was leaving the room where they had met. He just SORTA under his breath said I. Don't know how how something can have too much vacant it just it completely took my dad's breath away. He's a mid west man. He's never. You can see a large pile of Bacon and he would never be like s too much. So for someone to say something on too much bacon was something he just couldn't understand. Grant. You want to we.

Hopefully, you don't have to move anymore, but we made pending on restrictions, and when people were kind of allowed to go, do certain things so art. That's housekeeping. I think we've gotten through it Trent. Are you ready to discuss the fact that the John Deere Classic is so unimportant now a just canceled it. No I you know, I've been thinking a lot about this obviously since the news broke. The John Deere Classic has been canceled. The reason is because by the time when it was supposed to be which was mid-july. Illinois is still expected to be limited gatherings to fifty people are less see candle the golf tournament those type of restrictions, so they cancelled it. It's devastating. Honestly because you know we talk about that termine all the time on this show I talk about it in a positive light. You guys talk about it in a very immature negative way, but this was well this. Mischaracterization, not a mix every. Virginia you guys get to Sucker Punch me and the John Deere Classic. You guys take every opportunity even when I don't see it coming. We talking about some random thing with random guests, and you guys will just take a jab at me of the John Deere Classic. It sucks man because like we've mentioned on I have mentioned on this show before that like. This was the year that we were maybe. Maybe going to get a top fifty player, we were maybe because all the other years were were the week before the open championship. Guys skip it because they want to already be across the pond, getting their practice rounds in, and you know unfortunately this year with the gold pandemic. It made it so there was going to be an opportunity for top fifty players to be there, and it just gets cancel. It Sucks I. Don't know what to say other than it sucks. Daddy. We had a bet that will will that the number? One or two players play in the John Deere Classic? Over under I think the over was one and a half, or maybe even a half. Top Five or top ten player would be there I don't think that should be honored at this point because the whole bucket tournament got. Just and just wanted to know your take on I also. I, also room in that Tiger Woods is going to play at the John Deere Classic. Was a room and that was going to happen and. Know you know now but like.

Time To Reinvent Your Life?
"How are Ya how awesome is weekend? It was a lot around here. I live in new SMYRNA Beach Cherry here in Florida outside of Daytona. And over the weekend. They lifted a lot of the stay at home. Motorola restaurants stores started open. I gotTa tell you also from the beaches and it was really odd to see all these people in bathing suits and boats and stuff and headed to the beach. It's it's been so long this kind of an odd feeling actually. Don't even know what to think about it right now. Just don't know configured out though it is what it is right. Also the daily boost from motivation to move dot com every single day. No matter what you gotta figure out stuff certainly happens to make you work at it. You have dreams ambitions desires things you WanNa do things you wanna get on track or back on track with it but at the end yeah life gets in the way and we have to deal with it. There's one thing I know for sure. Life will always get in the way. They're always challenges. They always have to be managed in some kind of strange way we have to. Sometimes her head screwed on straight. You know something that I learned in the past couple of weeks and I would have been talking to it just a ton of people and this is one of the biggest lessons I picked up on everybody. Everybody has a different perspective of what's happening right now. Everybody depending on what job there in. What part of the country they live in some people are are not working at all. Some people are working endless hours. Some people are still getting paid. Exactly what they got before but they're working eighty hours a week and have no time to do anything that will frustrated. Some people just want to get back to work in the can't everybody's in a different spot and yes a lot of people affected by this virus. A lot of people have been lost in this virus so I've really gotten perspective of that just by talking to people all over the world about how were all writing this same storm. Many many different boats together and so people in small boats and some enlarge votes. It's crazy but hopefully God willing. It will settle here soon. My name is Scott Smith the founder and the chief motivating officer here at motivation. Move Dot Com. I'm sure happy you're here today. There are tons of places you could be. This is going to good place because we're talking about a little reinvention today. A favorite topic of mine and something has been a lot of time helping a lot of folks do. There is no better time than right now to reinvent yourself maybe a little better or a little different as we move forward and help you do that. I want to invite you to become a member at motivation who've dot com where we have the daily news premium version of this show which comes out Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday and the operation reinvention to you on Saturday all commercial. Free no promotions. Nothing is just pure coaching every single day. Plus the operation reinvention coaching call. Were doing zoom calls at spent a lot of fun to chat with people all over the world the Fisher Passion Program David Nugget. Email the daily text message so much energetically put together basically to do one thing. Help you stand up. Take a step and repeat every single day no matter what gets in the way. I've cut the price during this pandemic is going on. We dropped fifty percent down to nine ninety five contracts. You can cancel anytime. Never had a price this low before so if you join us just go to motivation who've dot com get started today so here we are. It is Monday and that means I was thinking about things I want to do in my life now this weekend you. I'm always talking about exploring the possibility well. I got to explore the possibility this weekend. A friend of ours owns and I'll pack a wrench to and as you said. Hey can you bring your tractor over and help me move some dirt around and you have to put some dirt and some stalls can yell at thought out and get detractors. I've got trigger and I I took my track over there. John Deere and I spent the entire day helping her. But you know what I learned. I explored the possibility of doing dirt work in a neat cool tractor all day long and I. I realized I wasn't going to be something I ever aspired to do. As a living not nothing wrong with it but it wasn't going to happen so I knew my homework. I'M GONNA look at my world and say what do I like about my world? What I don't like about my world and okay do I like to attract or work for my neighbor. Well sort of venue. She asked again. I would help but would I try to avoid it. Heck Yeah it's not really my list right now and that's all we have to do with homework. That's it. We look into our life the things that were doing the things we'd like to do things that we don't like to do things you wanna say yes to things. We want to say no to decide how we're GONNA handle it in the future when you do that when you assess how your life is going to be and you just a few minutes every single day. I like it every single day. You want so if you want to. You'd be surprised what happens if you don't do that. You'll be surprised. Ten Years Fly Pie. And You wonder how you got there. See it every day. So do your homework. If you need help remember get the perfect planner. It's in the resource section of motivation. And WE'VE DOT COM easy to find. They're just click on that and download it and watch the video. It'll explain to you how to how to hold time for yourself. Maybe you got some extra time right now you can use it so let's talk about reinventing. Costano a pretty good time right now. I mean the past month has created a nothing short of a massive disruption in our lives. No doubt about that. So why not take advantage of this journey back to normal and maybe switch things up now? This is a nonstop never ending specialty and expertise. I have done this for a lot of years really being able to go come where I am and just become something different when I want to and helping so many people do it so I have a lot of experience in this world and it's a great chance to do it in fact it's been said you've heard the phrase before never let a crisis go to waste. We got one right now right. There's a disruption right now and when something has been disrupted you have a chance to wiggle and move and shake and bake and do everything you WanNa do. Make a few changes so when he wanted some tweaks as we move ourselves back to what is going to be normal here in the future or you WANNA total reinvention. The process is very much the same use the same steps. No matter what you WANNA do. Little suffer big stuff ready number one and this is a big deal and it's usually the one that people have already done but don't realize they've done it. You must acknowledge that something needs to change. Doesn't sound like a whole lot but you'd be surprised. Lots of people are trying to fix all kinds of things and not recognize as underlying change. It has to happen so when you recognize. There is something that needs changing. Listen to your gut into crisis. We're in right now. Lives are disrupted and you're thinking wait a second. How did I get here? How did this happen? Whether it's my fault. Non My fall how could I have avoided this? How could I made it easier and that gut feeling might be telling you make a few changes so if and when it happens again you're in a different spot number to be honest your inner thoughts and your feelings are real. We ARE EMOTIONAL BEINGS. And so that's where it's GonNa come from now. We have to transfer that into logic right but they are telling you the truth. They're telling you something has to change so listen to what's in there really reading yourself. An honor what. You're feeling. Translate that into actions. You'll see what happens. So first acknowledging ing that we really need to make a change in order to get the the impact that we want and to be honest with these feelings are yours. A lot of folks will say yea. I don't know it's kind of running around my head. Coaching and work with people one of the biggest things I do is validate that feeling. Validate that thought. I tested and validated. To make sure it's real and often in the process they go out the way you said it back to me. I can see that. It's this right so honored that clearly understand why you want to reinvent something you gotTa know this now. The wise always a very powerful thing but when you understand exactly why you WANNA make some changes and really feel it. It's GonNa get you excited. And that is a power that will move you forward through the journey. You're about ready to take. We should ask yourself a favor question. I think I got this the book the One thing. What one thing can you do or not? Do that will have the most significant impact on your life. It's an extremely powerful question. You're trying to make a reinvention of yourself because if you're trying to move in a certain direction there is something you can do. It may be changing jobs and maybe starting a business may be quitting the job. Who knows what is going to be. I don't know your situation right now but there's got to be one thing maybe it's moving. Maybe it's paying off some bills. I don't know what it's going to be. But there is one thing you can do that or not do. That's going to have a huge impact and immediate instantaneous. Impact on your life. Don't be afraid of that. Go find it. Why take your time looking forward and dabbling around when you just think about it a little bit and figure out what to do? I want you to set a sprint goal. I thought about this when I wrote this down. I typically will say a ninety day goal so the at least ninety days I went to sprint toward at your focus goes in that direction. You WanNa make the change now. Ninety days is something anybody can do but I will recognize ninety days. It's a longtime particularly in the The upheaval we feel these days. So my first thought was well. Let'S CUT BACK THIRTY S. Push everybody for thirty days and do that and I like thirty days. Anybody can do thirty days so I'm going to give you a little bit of leeway here I want you to sprint for at least thirty but a fixture think three months if you can hold on for thirty days and then go ninety you will change. Your Life. I promise you a lot faster than you think it won't be the all-time
Millions of businesses expected to seek Paycheck Protection Program loans

Harvesting tech shows up down on the farm as Brexit labor shortage looms
"As it turns is out that all jobs where a human touch is or has been irreplaceable fruit and Berry picking is a good example. Soft delicate fruits must be assessed zest for ripeness and then gently plucked without smashing them in a vice like grip but in Britain one looming effect of Brexit is a shortage of cheap human when labor and that spawned a new flurry of interest in robots. That can do the job. So you see that it's Reaching the stem and now the gripper cutter will cut the stem and grip the Strawberry Visha Mohana University of Essex Marketplace's. This is London bureau. Chief Stephen Bid went to see his robot in action. This is definitely very difficult. Territory for robotics These aren't repetitive. Movements in a highly structured environment as you would get in a car plant. The environment with fruit-growing is very unstructured. The robots gotta find the the fruit through a massive leaves so it needs stereoscopic cameras. David Three D. Image. It assesses the rightness of the fruit by measuring its wavelengths on the visible spectrum. It needs to deal with fruit of different shapes and sizes and machine learning going on here so it is pretty difficult to these robots. What's move with any sort of speed. I'm kind of imagining them. Shooting up and down these rows of fruit arms flinging grabbing berries filling baskets. Well they can do with that but They wouldn't be very effective they. They cannot pick as well as humans yet. They're getting there But they're they're picking more slowly than humans but they can work much longer so lacking speed they make up foreign stamina an average human raspberry picker picker can collect fifteen thousand berries in an eight hour day. The robot can harvest twenty five thousand in a twenty hour day so so slower but hard working robots also can pick at night which is not so easy for humans and that's better for the fruit because they they've been picked at low temperatures. Have they could be chilled more easily. How does the cost of these machines. Workout I'm guessing. They're expensive to buy but do they. Balance Out over their lifetime. Well this probably is the the major stumbling block in the path of this technology the Belgian company Tinian which is probably the most advanced of the European robot developers won't say exactly how much they cost which is never a good sign. They say the cost is comparable with the cost of human Picking but I've heard a lot of suggestions that One of these robots could cost as much as a hundred and thirty thousand dollars. It'd be very hefty price to pay. What Tinian says is that. They offer a complete package. They offer to rent out the equipment but one fruit grow that I spoke to said that he didn't expect Robots to become widespread in the UK or Europe until now the decade at least Stephen Beard in the UK on the robots revolutionizing farming now for some related links automation in farming doesn't just have to mean robots. Robot's there are other ways that tech continues to infiltrate agri-business here in the US. Drones can help with monitoring crops checking for hydration levels so that watering schedules can be adjusted dynamically. They can spray pesticides and autonomous tractors and harvesters could do the monotonous back and forth driving over miles of fields old. Forbes looks into this in detail and says that it's bringing the high-tech west coast and the rural rust belt together as farming tools become increasingly software independence. That old question of who actually owns them is cropping up again. Farmers have started hacking. Their tractors manufacturers like John. Deere basically lock them down around to stop what they would call an authorized repair work. The farmers the vice interview say when something breaks down. They can't get to a dealer and they don't necessarily want to pay for that. I'm Jackie Stewart. And that's marketplace tech.

"This isn't me speaking as a representative John Deere but just the someone who's kind of in the agriculture equipment whirled and I'm looking out and I go to farm shows and over the next ten to twenty years the way I I see things personally going as it's GonNa get Moreton Imas and it's going to get smaller and you know we've got to the point where the equipment is huge and the real challenges that we need to you know we're going to have even more people on this planet and we need we need to be able to feed them and that's not necessarily gonNA mean that we need to just like Jack up the output of Iowa and Illinois as far as corn soybeans. Go you know we need that too but we really need the rest of the world to be able to to me. That output countries need to be able to feed their their own people. They can't all be dependent upon Iowa. Output massive amounts of corn right and and some of the big equipment doesn't necessarily make sense in the smaller countries with a whole variety of different topography and everything and also. Oh from our standpoint. You know having a single piece of equipment is for a farmer you know. That's a single point of failure and just like we WANNA break up our monoliths. It makes sense for that equipment to get smaller. And if it's a Thomas and it's robots they could get quite small. I know personally of at least breath. Ford different companies within Iowa little startups included running out people's Barnes where people people are trying to make like dog or horse size robots for farm equipment. You know to go out and do planting or harvesting being or or spraying you know and we're working on on similar things. We we have a company out of called Blue Blue River out of Sunnyvale. Where we're doing machine? She in learning sprang. So you know we're having it and be able to go through the field and book you know right now. It's hold behind a tractor but it can look at that look at the plants and say. Hey that's a that's a weed spray that that's a corn plant. Don't spray that and it's going to get more you know we're hoping we can reduce eventually herbicide use by like ninety percent and it's just GonNa get more intelligent and more autonomous and that's gonNA mean smaller pieces of equipment. That are kinda running around so I I think that's a really cool is just like look out and would love to see just a bunch of dog size robots going around picking weeds. It's very very very science fiction to me. Essentially doing what people used to really plausible right. You know we used to just have kids walking through the fields picking weeds needs. That's how you did weeding. Send the kids out to walk the beans. Why can't robot do that? All right. Ryan Bergman thanks for coming on the show. It's been great talking thanks. You probably.

"I can do all the testing that I need to do on my laptop basically or some combination of the laptop and remote cloud resources but you are testing software that needs to be deployed to a tractor or software that needs to be on the cloud but supporting attractor in the field. So I imagine you can do some of the testing that you need to do with simulation Russian. I'm sure there are some kinds of systems. That are isolated enough that you don't really necessarily have to do lots of Unit testing testing all the time in in hardware in a real world capacity. But I do imagine. The overall workflow needs to account for the kinds of integration and real world software hardware interface challenges that are potentially going to occur once that software is out in the real world. Tell me more about the testing and development pipeline and how you minimize the amount of errors that are going to make it out into the real world sure so we have kind of all range of different applications so we do have applications that are really just purely a web application and and really only deal with state and things that are within our direct control and could be tested in a normal way you know with normal developer. Td kind of kind of environments lot of the stuff in my area kind of falls into that you know we do mobile APP development. It's kind of similar. You know you can walk out. API requests and as far as the stuff that goes on women. That's where it gets a lot more complicated so when I first came to dear the first project that I worked on is called remote display access so this allows anyone from a computer anywhere to be able to remote into the display. So it's basically doing you know good old. DNC technology that's been around since the eighties but we're doing it to a tractor over cellular connection that might be out in the middle of nowhere and that allows that's really valuable for like especially the dealers and the other people who were helping the farmer configure their equipment and they can because they can and you know if they have to do a service call and drive a truck out sometimes you know it could be in West Texas. It could be an hour and a half two hour drive before Um some some tech from the dealership gets to the farmer and if they can just VNC into the display and they can say oh yeah just click here click here change that to a two. Now you're good so that's like the whole thing right impacts on the equipment it impacts the web and does it's really difficult uh-huh to test kind of all the way into end really well at least at least it's not fast rate. But we mitigate that in a couple in different ways one. We have kind of small-scale equipment. Simulators can plug into this blaze to kind of walk around or office. You'll see people have a display. Blame the steering wheel just like strapped onto the side of it and you can do a little bit of simulation they are. At least you can interact with the display for most of the things we were talking about out simulating things like censor income sensors coming in or we WANNA do more advanced stuff with the entire cab. We have entire simulators. Here's where we basically have. We have lab and we have the cabs of the equipment because the cavs are fairly interchangeable. It's basically the same cab that goes the same command center if you will. That goes on a combine. That goes on a tractor that goes on spare and so we have these and they're hooked up to what are essentially look like gigantic Nintendo entertainment system cartridges. That are about like I don't know they're bigger. They're like the size of a dresser right and they contain within them all of the electronic equipment for that particular piece of equipment so for combine for example. They'd have all the sensors answers and an electronic equipment and they're not as wide as address. But you pretty thin look like cartridge and then we have like a boss that Kinda travels below them so rather than you take in the cartridge and plugging it into it. The plug kind of moves around the bottom and you decide which one you want to look it up. Doing it hooks up to that and so that allows a lot more advanced simulations and we'll run like on the display builds off and run it through a whole host of different automated test plus with the actual hardware and then when our ultimate thing is we we have an entire test farm. It's about I don't know fifteen twenty miles us out from our office and it's it's pretty nice because you know if you happen to be working on something that impacts the tractor and it's a really nice day and sprang the fall or something. They could be like. Oh I think I need to test it out of the out of the farm and we have all the equipment. We have a cotton picker there. It's the only place you'll see a cotton picker driving around Iowa and you can go out there and we can. We can run the builds on actual equipment. It's pretty Nice facility. That's cool quick check on autonomy so the idea of self driving tractor or self-driving arriving cotton picker is. That's a reality today or stan is. We've been doing for years. It'll drive up and down on the you know. Originally the first version was that was that it would just it would stay on an exact line and say you know you can imagine with like rows of corn could align itself right up with the with those rows that new planted so he knew he planned to these corns at these corn rows these GPS coordinates and so we have a line line there and the equipment can align itself up with that row and it can drive down and the first version of it. You had to turn it around. But now we've got got to the point where essentially the equipment could just go into field and drive back and forth and and do everything we do require that a human being still sit in it It is dangerous equipment and we need that human override in case something would happen. We don't want a combine like going off and hurting someone or or livestock or anything like that so but the equipment is is essentially driving itself at that point and and we're getting more and more advanced with that as we go. The equipment also has the ability to communicate with other pieces of equipment in the field. So say you have a grain contractor come in with a grain cart to offload combine. The tract with green card communicates with the combine the two pieces of equipment. Figure out exactly how that tractor is going to come up to the side of the combine the combine can offload its grain and automatically figure out how to fill up that Ben This is a really stressful thing. If you're to human beings trying to do this right try to drive really really big piece of equipment and have a shoot off to to the side offloading grain and trying not to hit each other is can be really really stressful. And so we've got it so the equipment basically all does all that part itself and they don't have to worry about that and then once the green card filled up the tractor pulls off to a point where the human can safely take back over the the driving of that equipment and it takes it off to wherever it needs to take it a silo or a semi truck or something like that and when you have two machines communicating with each other. Are they routing their traffic through the cloud or can they talk over Bluetooth Dude. There's something they're talking to each other over I. Believe it's a shortwave. Radio shortwave Radio K.. That would make more sense. Let's talk a little bit more about the the software infrastructure side of things so the applications that are running on the tractors themselves are those mostly C.. Plus plus or do you have a a wide variety of application types. That are actually running inside the tractors. It's almost listen tirelessly C.. Plus plus. Yeah especially as you get or just see right. So if we're talking about like an embedded controller on a transmission commission or something like that that's most likely probably just see maybe it's C.. Plus plus it certainly natively bill. The displays are all both are are all C. Plus plus we have looked into. You know augmenting that with not everything -sarily like on the display would need to be C.. Plus plus it is a real time operating system. We really need that like when you click this button that this physical thing happens so we need that aspect to it and so there's performance implications implications and a lot of those. The people we have that are really experienced with this or experienced people's plus developer. So it's kind of a natural language REG NC polls plus honestly isn't as bad as it used to be a few using like sepals plus eleven. I think is the newer version. We have looked at starting to do some more stuff with with like roster go and there's no reason why a lot of the applications on the display couldn't be written in something like python or something like that not not everything on there is you know needs real time critical application and there's like a radio the radio could probably be in whatever right. It's just too many run times and dependencies there sure but I think rust is really the most interesting one of the the A new languages and I. We have several different groups looking very closely at rest because of the memory safety or what. What's the what makes attractive to you? Yeah I mean attracted to me is yeah the memory safety the fact that is this a little bit more modern and I just find it a fascinating being language in general as far as I don't do a lot of that embedded programming myself but if I ever get over into that space more I would definitely want to look at that go. It'd be fine too but you know it's not as hip a new thrust. Is You know. I wonder with with the C.. Plus plus stuff. I wonder if this is going to be like what we have with. COBOL and Fortran where there's now a huge shortage of cobalt fortran developers like C. Plus plus plus isn't that like the plus plus developers. They're all aging out. Like I don't think anybody like millennials do not learning C. Plus Plus No. It's it's hard and what's interesting though is that I think a lot of our developers that are on the a display. There's quite a few. That are just mechanical engineers right. They didn't go into computer science. They went into to become engine. Ears agricultural engineers going to like Iowa state or or University of Illinois Champaign. We have a kind of a lab up there with the intention of of doing real physical engineering well anymore..

"XP methodologies I worked at another place in town that was kind of known around town for the we did a lot of that kind of stuff. We practice pair programming. And we you know did all. Td and that company was bought by another company and it kind of collapsed at that point like all the engineers quit. And I think about fifteen fifteen of US wound up at John Deere one capacity or another and really a lot of things changed around that time. And if you were to come we just moved into a new building which is which is pretty cool. But you know it doesn't look a lot different than you know. A lot of the shops you see and in Silicon Valley Delhi or elsewhere and we still practice a lot a lot of those racks. So we're doing pair programming doing test driven development. We do a lot of you've of testing at a lot of different layers as even really. It's it's so much more important with the kind of stuff that we're doing because it's a lot harder our to get an update if there's a bug that's happens to impact you know displays or something on the equipment. That's a lot more expensive to fix than just something. That's it's in a web APP right and also take into account that our equipment you know. It's it's big it's dangerous. You know it it could hurt you. And and we have to take those kind of considerations into into account and make sure everything's pretty solid before it goes out and gets in the hands of customers. Today's.
"john deere" Discussed on Software Engineering Daily
"Great to be here. You work at John Deere and we're GONNA discuss a lot about software and hardware and agriculture. I'd like to just start by getting your description for the software and the hardware that runs modern agriculture. Give me an overview of the technology. Sure so there's a large piece of agricultural equipment in the kind of stuff. I work on talking about you. Know really big combines tractors actors with planters sprayers. It's kind of amazing. It's it's really a series of a whole bunch of little computers. A lot of different things you can think of like the tractor is a is a bunch of micro services right and all of the different pieces of hardware often have their own embedded controllers like even down to individuals spray nozzles on sprayer and they all have to work together. They communicate together and make a total system. The sheer a number of computer systems and moving parts on these things is pretty amazing and what are some examples of devices that John Deere builds. It's so I'll kind of lay out where I'm coming from with with this. I'm so I work for John. Deere Intelligence Solutions Group so we are a kind of a division or Business Unit of John. Deere you're that's a little bit independent from say corporate or from a particular factories so generally are what we call it like a platform. It is a particular kind of equipment so harvest works mix combines and they kind of oversee their own thing as far as the combine. It goes on you know. The tractors made in Waterloo and they have their own kind of thing. What intelligent solutions group does is? We build a a lot of the more advanced computer systems. That kind of help tie all these things together. So we make the display that goes on the tractor or any of the equipment there's generally an embedded display. There's also a what we call an empty which is basically glorified rugged is cellphone so all the large equipment comes pre built with a A telematics device like that we oversee the the satellite receivers because all of the equipment is GPS EPS driven. A lot of times equipment will have more than one satellite receiver and then we also have a large network of base stations and farmers can have their own base stations. And so we we we see oversee that too and so all of that is generally those parts of it are like imbedded C. Plus plus kinds of applications nations and those will collect all the data you know they're used for configuring the equipment and then we take all that data and through that telematics device we suck all that data into the cloud and we process it and a lot of the stuff that I personally work on is all that data that's in the cloud and then the farmers can use I used to get reports and maps about their different kinds of operations they can share that data with say an agronomist. They're working with and the agronomists can be able to look at that. That data make prescriptions for spraying or fertilizing and they can send that back and automatically goes back onto the equipment and the equipment can automatically configure itself for those kinds of prescriptions so spraying operation. The agronomist might say hey you need let's do this amount of chemical Michael in this part of the field and this amount of chemical and this other part of the field that goes onto the sprayer spur than knows. I need to spray exactly the smell of chemical in at this piece of land at this amount in this piece of land and you can drive the sprayer and figure eights across the field if you want. It's only ever going to apply exactly what it needs to apply and that way and we can severely reduced the amount of chemical use that's applied because you know farmers don't WanNa overpay consumers don't want their food over sprayed sprayed and that's kind of like the whole circle and then once you get to harvest we take that data we bring that up into the cloud and then we can look at that data that they're They're planting and they're spraying and the harvest and we can see how those different inputs impacted the bushels per acre that they got in a particular field within a particular area of a particular field but the data as far as the yields the crop yields of the end. That's data that the somebody has to put in manually at the android because that's not like something that it is necessarily going to be gathered by the farming equipment. Oh Yeah it is. Yeah I mean it's at the end of the day you're going to get paid for what goes into the elevator. Batur right when you when you go and you way at the elevator but what we know about the sake corn or soybeans or we we to whatever it is. The combine can calculate exactly pretty pretty really close to what you actually have. And we know what they're going to have before they even get to the elevator and we can calculate our sensors that are in those combines and they're looking at the grain ads going through the shoot and we can also and we can use that the data we can calculate the moisture and we even know like you know when you get to an elevator. You'RE GONNA get paid for not only the grain but also is a factor that how does how much how much moisture isn't it because if the elevator has to dry it then you know. There's charges for that because it takes propane gas to or some other other source to dry the grain so we know the moisture content. We know how much grain you've you've got we tell you what you're going to get the elevator before you get there amazing in show. I'm imagining these different kinds of machines that drive around the fields. You've got got combines cotton pickers and all these different gigantic machines that John deere builds in each of these things. There is some data that gets gathered. There's some calculations that take place locally on these big pieces of machinery and then there's some shuttling of data to the cloud is the data gathering and the data sending to the cloud. Is that heavily separated like or can you just stream data to the cloud. Do you have a consistent reliable network connection to be able to send data to the cloud. Well the answer is it depends. Ideally we do we will stream and that's kind of our default behavior is to stream and we we actually stream kind of been in thirty second chunks. You don't necessarily need like a constant stream and we're sampling that data so all of this the planting data and the harvesting data gets you know. We're not transmitting. Say the GPS coordinates of every single seed. We plant although we could do that. That would just be way too much data right and it's not terribly useful so we do a sampling of between one and five Hertz. On all of that data and it gets kind of little batch up and then send Dan and as long as we have a connection where we can do that. And that's not always the case I can drive I live in Des Moines Iowa. I can drive about thirty miles from Des Moines and get you to a place where there's no cell coverage and that's despite the fact that you know you go to. At and T. or verizon or whatever when you look at their map and it looks like we cover all of America right and there's only like one or two little pockets of of nothing and that's not quite right. There's lots of rural America that has really poor coverage or you do get there and it's only like the weakest of edge. It's pretty bad so we generally design all the telematics stuff so it doesn't require a real solid connection like will transmit over to ten cans with some string if we could and if we can't get a connection action it'll just kind of bundle it up and wait and tell the equipment gets to a place where does have a better connection than consented and still even there. You get to specially out West and rural areas where it's just not gonNA happen at all and if that happens the farmer can plug a USB stick into the tractor will Popol of the data off onto that he could take it back to his computer at home and plug it in. And we'll upload it from a from a desktop computer or from their cell L. phone so it's not like an overwhelming amount of data such that the connectivity intermittent connectivity across different on customers is GonNa get bottleneck basically while you're not connected to the Internet and you know you'd have to down sample or have to lose data or you have to do roll ups or something. It's just not not so much data that that happens no not really I say we pretty good job. The format that we send it in. Hannah's pretty compressed. It's nowhere near like watching for K.. On Netflix we're not at that level like once we as far as is the transmitting of it goes now as we expand it. That data gets pretty big. And we've got. I think last time I checked like twenty five pedal bites of total economic data which is not tiny still. Know if I'd call big data though. I think we're still only a moderately early sized pond right like in the scheme right right compared to what other some other people are dealing with. So what can you expect out of the equipment. Operators in terms of technical expertise do they need to have significant understanding of anything related to software engineering twelve. You Know No. And there's a real shortage of farm farm labor in rural America. You know they don't. There's it's just part of the reason why John Deere and other people in agriculture have been working more and more towards autonomous vehicles and automating. All of this is that there's just not a lot of people out there do this labor and the expertise of the People Bluer. They're no we can't count on them. Having any kind of computer science degree our mantra is someone should be able to just jump in the cab turn turn the key and go and the equipment's going to figure out everything that it needs to do now. There's probably going to be someone who's knows a lot about Not necessarily computers. I don't even know about that but just how to configure some of this equipment because it is complicated and particularly if you're configuring it to be able to do the self driving operations you know you gotta get all of the everything Kinda configured the right way with the satellite receivers fevers and a lot of people rely on their dealers to help them do that. And we do. A lot to to help enable those dealers and other service providers to Being able to to help the farmers in doing that whether it's being able to send alerts about oil pressure to the dealers or or other things so that they can let a farmer know that he's going to have a problem with a piece of equipment and they should get it fixed earlier or if it's like I was striving before with the agronomists and the being able to do those advanced economic operations and be able to configure sprayers for what they need to do. You have been with at the company for more than eight years and the period of the last eight years I would say is this idea of quote unquote unquote digital. Transformation has really built a lot of steam. Now there's a lot of countries they've been digitally transforming for a longer period than eight years but certainly over the last eight years. The cloud has really caught on as a software development paradigm. And so. You've seen engineering. I'm sure change change at a pretty rapid pace because the cloud has been such a transformative set of technologies as well as like open source has been so much happening in open source of the last eight years. Here's how his engineering within John Deere changed over that eight year period. That you've been with the company right. It goes back further further than that from when I joined about a little over eight years ago. I asked you started. I think around two thousand and really it started off with the the with the satellite. That's the intelligent systems group into. Yeah the Intelligence Solutions Group. Yeah so that's really started around two thousand with with this the satellite navigation and and the automatic steering the original like I version of those things we literally like mechanically ACLU turn the steering wheel. You could retrofit till like older pieces of equipment to which is pretty fine when I joined John Deere. IS S. G was undergoing change at that time where they were kind of moving to more agile..

"Robotics has changed. Modern Agriculture Autonomous Systems. are powering the tractors cotton pickers and corn cutters that yield plants at industrial scale. Gail John Deere is a company that has been making farm equipment for one hundred and eighty three years over that period the planting and harvesting process has become increasingly increasingly mechanized and John Deere has been at the forefront over the last few decades software has played an increasingly important role at John Deere today. There is software inside the vehicles. The tractors the cotton picking machines and these vehicles can operate autonomously. They collect large amounts of data and they're supported by a large system of cloud services the teams within John Deere who create the software. have an elaborate testing workflow. It allows them to deploy the software to the vehicles and drive them in the field. Ryan Bergman is a software engineer at John Deere and he joins the show to talk about the software engineering hiring management and devops practices within the company I love software architecture. Software Architecture is the high level perspective of how to build software systems much of software engineering daily is about software architecture and if you're interested in software architecture there's no better place to go to discuss and learn about software architecture sure than the O'Reilly software architecture.

Good is the enemy of great Because you're already in a good place are you going to really push yourself to achieve greatness because that comes with with a with a level of risk right and also we are very. We're in a good position from a as a hardline company and we are making a transformation so so that is again uncomfortable so the new world that we're in is disrupt or be disrupted a try and so get comfortable comfortable being uncomfortable right so that all and not as that's a cultural thing that we have to kind of embrace company going forward but what I would like to say is do Duhr is not a stranger. Transformation eighteen thirty seven. We innovated as a company. This was the beginning of John. Deere with south scarring block that was the original innovation right fast. Forward a short eighty one years and we decided to go check out this internal combustion vestige and engine fat that was happening in one thousand nine hundred nine and decided to make start making machines because you know our legacies doing animal move. You know pulled implements. Let's get that and go make these tractor things right so we did that. Big Bet. Big Risk Transform The AG industry transformed Dior. And we've never been the same fast forward. Another short eighty-one years we acquired the NAF COM satellite positioning the company in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine and that is the underpinnings for everything that we're doing today. It's the precision that we needed to drive that auto auto truck yield mapping to do the variable rate application. All data required that salvage level accuracy. That was satellite corrected right eight and now we know waiting on years. Eighteen years later twenty seventeen the acquisition of Blue River and now we're on boarding artificial intelligence onto our equipment. That's why say the future is limitless. Transformation is an odd. Yeah no that is considering what companies last like even a great company. You're seeing like fortune. Five hundred's will be gone ten to twenty years you've seen that I ain't giants giants. Topples can get comfortable sitting on your laurels. No no no no. I think that is a perfect finish. Oh sonal if anyone wants to learn more about John Deere and exciting things here at C. S.. How else could they learn about John? Deere AH wealth.

Country Star Joe Diffie on Making a No. 1 Record
"Welcome to episode to seventeen with Ed. A Guy I really like and been a big fan of yours. Jody gooding here. Yeah good to see all thank you you as well you know I was looking. I know most of the stuff about you like I've been a fan before we've been able to be friends. I was just a massive Asif Fan of you growing up and so as I kind of one of the deep dive. 'cause I always like to find out. What do I not know about people coming over to the house? Right listen to this. I don't know if even knew that. Go on this day. December Sixteenth Nineteen Ninety Four. You had the number one song on the Billboard Country Charles Pickup Man. It was your longest lasting number one having spent four weeks at number one from December ninety four to January ninety five. Did you know that was today. No I didn't notice today. I knew the the rest of that. I didn't realize the data. That's pretty cool on this day. Number war yeah so for example Luke. Combs just spent three weeks at number one And that's a long the last three weeks number one especially today really big deal when you have a song this one for four weeks in in Nineteen ninety-four. What's the vibe that well I mean? It was unusual because back then you know they put out a lot more songs that the frequency of you put forth four four or five times a year and now you might have one son stays on the charts. Lingering there at some point For almost a year you know so So that was kind of weird weird part. We had to wait to see what how long it was going to stay number one before we could put another record. So did you feel like that song was going to be a number one song. I knew it from the institute after I heard it really I really do. Yeah I don't know why just something about it just you know. Have you been able to name and nail boasted most of your big songs for the first time you heard them. Yeah pretty much There was a couple that it didn't Like John Deere Green. I hated one. I heard it real. Why why well because the demo now this is a long saga but it but when I first heard it it was done by the rider writer named Dennis Linde and he had a very eclectic sound voice and he did all his own demos at his house so it had a Jew's harp planning ardine are Ernie Ernie and I was like what the heck is that you know in my producer so we'll just ignore the demo part I I'd have to add right now? That is subsequently Loved all Denison. Lindy's demos they were so cool after he got kind of figured out what was what was happening. You know my producer said listen to the words and and and I was like man. I just don't like it at all. He goes. Well I think this hit and I said well we can try you know go in the studio cut it and if it doesn't work out then we scrap grab you know so. Luckily it worked
GDP data; business investment stabilizing
"So we are going to spend a couple of minutes at the top half of the program on a slice of that. GDP data something called business investment a key although lacking of late part of what makes this economy go. Marketplace Justin Ho starts US off business investment has been shrinking for the last two quarters but last quarter decline wasn't a steep is expected. Sarah Watt House is an economist at Wells Fargo Securities. We're not seeing it fall off a cliff. Fanny means companies are still spending. But they've certainly illustrated some hesitancy in recent months. Hell says the trade war is making companies less willing to spend on expensive new factories which take years to complete today. John Deere reported at the trade wars made farmers cautious about making major investments in new equipment. Instead how says businesses are spending more on intangible items which aren't as vulnerable bolt economic cycles. So things like software research and development to help companies come up with that next big product or or idea so that's accounting for increasing share of business investment companies did spend more uncertain tangible items overall spending on equipment fell but within that spending on industrial equipment went up so depending on the buildings that House that equipment George Perks Global Macro Strategist for spoke investment group both much firmer than you expect back. Based on manufacturing industry survey that's relatively hopeful fine still businesses spent less on new commercial buildings less on transportation equipment less on new hospitals. It's a trend that reflects a broader shift in the US economy says Alex Casino at Manulife Investment Management Manufacturing has become increasingly less important as a percentage of GDP DP. I'm the services sector which is supported by software house become increasingly important while today's GDP data found that business investment is shrinking. The same report said spending ending on services is growing in New York. I'm Justin how for marketplace.
Feeling the trade war on the farm
"First up today the latest on the US trade trade deficit that is of course the measure of whether we imported more than we export it. Well from September to October that deficit shrunk by about four and a half percent percent. That sounds great. But unfortunately it's because imports and exports both dropped. It's just that imports fell more. In other words there there was less economic activity like manufacturing and retail for the US economy overall and. That's not so great marketplace's Mitchell Hartman takes a closer look. US I agree cultural. Exports fell hard in September as retaliatory tariffs especially from Asian countries. Hit hard take apples. Ninety five percent of of US exports come from Washington. State says Jim Bear at the. US Apple Association. The Chinese New Year is everything so for example. If I was coming to visit you I would bring you this perfect apple from the United States as a gesture of good health and prosperity for the coming year bear says in China and India they love. US US grown red delicious and the last few years sales soared until the US slapped tariffs on Indian Chinese imports and they retaliated with sixty sixty to seventy percent tariffs on US apples. We are going to have our ninth largest crop in history but at the same time exports are down about one third third close to two hundred million dollars which frankly is a lot for the apple. growers another link in the supply chain is agricultural equipment and other big rigs tractors actors earthmovers and the like me by classic American Manufacturers Caterpillar and John Deere their export sales to foreign customers are falling says Elizabeth vermillion at CF IRA research. Now you have tariffs and trade and slowing global math nommik headwind plus. US farmers farmers are so uncertain about the trade future will China by their soybeans will India by their apples that they're holding back on buying new farm equipment for next year ear.

"US bond yields have surged super low this morning the ten year bond yield is about one point five three percent you can borrow for practically nothing something that has caught the attention of some big corporations market places Justin how joins us yeah apple revealed yesterday that it's issuing seven billion dollars worth of bonds and you know it's not just apple Walt Disney coca Cola caterpillar United Airlines twenty one companies issued almost thirty billion dollars in debt on Tuesday alone hello low low interest rates yeah companies are borrowing just because it's a good time to borrow no we've been reporting a lot lately about the Russian people trying to refinance their mortgages this is kind of like that lower interest rates on government bonds means companies can borrow more cheaply to John Deere you know during company the tractor maker issue thirty year bonds paying two point eight percent that's a record low for that kind of debt interest rates are so low companies can pay off older more expensive that early in apple's case it'll use the cash for share buybacks and dividends it said it will also be used for day to day operations for buying stuff maybe even into like positions though we know we'll see about that apple already has about two hundred billion dollars in cash and hasn't been buying many companies lately. all the money and still bar remarkably suggested
"As ineffective yeah. Certainly the people who believe that going in this hardened those views but i think think also people who supported trump may have come away from the summer supporting him just as well if not more. It's worth pointing out martine that the white house <hes> gave us a list of what they called historic achievements for president trump this summer. There were more than two dozen items on the list. <hes> you know this white house. Spokesman john deere said it was a historic orrick moment for the presidency to give you a flavor of what these achievements are. One was the meeting that trump had with kim jong hoon at the d._m._z. The border between north korea area and south korea that was a photo op meeting an important active diplomacy. I guess but it hasn't done anything to reverse the trends in north korea in fact north korea continues. I used to launch these short range missiles and has really frightened the japanese and south koreans with their aggression and what are some of the other things that the white house pointed to as some some of the president's achievements from these past couple of months yeah so there's a long list here and some of these things are not actually have not been achieved yet for example. The white house said that the president announced a new trade deal with japan to give farmers more access to export their products while the trade deal has not been executed. It's not been signed. There are a number the other things the state banquet that president trump had with her majesty queen elizabeth during his visit to the united kingdom honoring fallen heroes on the seventy fifth anniversary history of d day in france those are important events but they're not sort of tangible achievements or accomplishments that would necessarily secure somebody re election and were there are other things that were helpful to president trump this summer absolutely look at special counsel robert mueller's testimony july twenty fourth in house. There was a lot of expectation among congressional rational democrats that muller would make the case for impeachment that he would bring new evidence to the table that he would help generate momentum on capitol hill to begin impeachment precedings against the president that did not pan out molar gave a very lackluster performance that was criticized. He did not provide fresh evidence. He really stuck to the parameters of the report details the report and to trump that was a political victory and for the rank and file staffers that you talked to you within the white house and within the administration what did they say about what it's like to have experienced this summer you know they're tired and exhausted and one and republican strategist who works very closely with people at the white house described the sentiment as wake me when it's over. Just let's get through the summer trump. Of course it's is not one to follow a script or playbook or or be very disciplined and a staffer really on this herky-jerky roller coaster all summer long. I should point <unk> out by the way that the the white house spokesman says well. Nobody around here is tired. Were you know very busy getting work done for the american people so there is a defense of that attitude it as well. I also think that that some of these dominant narratives that came out of the summer specifically the the racist tweets about the squad that those kinds of things that galvanize president trump space absolutely and you know when trump was continuing these attacks on squad his advisors were saying look. There's a strategy here. This is a politically tactical move for president trump. It's a way to motivate and galvanized his white supporters. <hes> remember there there certain states states like wisconsin and michigan and pennsylvania where trump won narrowly in two thousand sixteen and hopes to win again in twenty twenty and a key for him to win some of those states according to his advisers visors is to turn out every single sort of trump inclined white voter that you can find in the hinterlands and the wait a message to them to appeal to them. According to the calculation calculation that trump campaign is making is with some of these racist charges so that even if this summer if if it's held up against the standard of other presidents and their summers before before an election year even if it doesn't seem like it was a high achieving summer that for him and what president trump is trying to do in the path that he sees towards reelection and in some ways it might have been a very effective summer. That's right i mean he. He certainly thinks it was an effective summer. I happen to think it was a summer. That tells us a lot about what the next year is going to be alike in that. There's not a grand plan here. There's not really much of a legislative agenda. <hes> there aren't that many concrete tangible things that are getting accomplished at churning from crisis to crisis to crisis in feud feud and trump lights that frankly that's how he won in in two thousand sixteen as he he drove the news cycle every single day and he stoked grievances and he pitted against each other and it worked to his benefit and there's a calculation and that he could do that again but it's not what you would traditionally call governing but when it comes to actual legislative action and passing bills with congress. Do you expect to see see that starting. This fall not much <hes> and part of that is just because of the partisan divide in congress right now one

Collateral Damage Of The Trade War, Farmers Want Chinese Market Reopened
"Support for NPR and the following message come from Dulles International Airport with the highest on time takeoff percentage of any airport on the east coast. I a d means I'm already departing more at fly Dulles dot com slash fast. We have a deeper look at American farmers affected by the trade war with China, it's well known that soybean farmers of lost their biggest market. What's less understood? Is that the whole US pharma Connie was directed overseas until now here's Amy mayor of Iowa public radio. Let's look at farm trade in three acts, act, one oversupply and politics going back at least late nineteenth century, US, farmers have sold much of what they've grown abroad. That's according to historian. Joe Anderson of mount Royal university in Calgary. Now, he says after World War Two a couple of changes, set the stage for today's global marketplace agricultural policy that's part of this. There's technology. As part of this synthetic fertilizer, and other advances meant farmers were producing well beyond the domestic demand for crops, such as corn, and soybeans, and in Washington lawmakers decided to marry surplus to foreign policy post World War, Two period. The United States started using food, and commodities in general, as a tool in the Cold War. The end government directed sales to other countries, the US department of agriculture and many commodity groups combined forces to open offices overseas and sponsor trade missions, whoa freeze one hundred Vietnam and the Philippines. The central Iowa farmer. Denny freest serves on the Iowa. Corn board and has made several trips to Asia corps before being grower producer. These markets are very to everything that I, I need to create demand for the product we grow because global economy, these big eat a lot of soybeans, and then some of them get sold abroad, but what happened. When demand slumps that brings us to act to why deform or stick with the same crops world. Rural farming today, takes a lot of capital as a boy free as never wrote on a tractor with a cab, but five decades into this business. The one on this John Deere is quipped with four different monitors with all he's invested in land equipment and technology. He can't just wake up one day and decide to grow something else, or soils above very well to growing corn. Soybeans we have the markets for them, and we have the machinery setup for it. So he's dedicated to attracting overseas buyers in addition to Asian countries he and other farmers have there is on Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Already this year, the European Union is buying more from the US than it used to up Pesonen is with the main lobbying voice for EU agriculture imports from the United States increased by fourteen percent mainly due to soybean imports. Even though the robust trade relationship between the US and EU has a long history, Pesonen says it's not immune to impacts from the crowd. Trade war between the US and China. It's quite worrying for us because agriculture is usually one of the first casualties, assessor dispute, and it quite often kind of collateral, damage, US, farmers feel like they're the collateral damage right now, while a second promise bailout could help some many hope instead for a trade resolution that revives the Chinese market for their products now act, three China's too big to lose Chinese demand is huge. That's how farmers came to be so focused on it says Mike Stine hook of the soy transportation coalition, and that paid off swimmingly for a number of years. And now of a sudden due to geopolitical tension that forecast is changed dramatically meaning until China and the US reach a truce in the trade war, there's going to be lots of stress throughout farm country for NPR news. I'm Amy mayor in Des Moines.

You'll get a full report if you have compromised accounts and notifications if you appear in new data breaches take care at monitor fire, FOX dot com. That time it was illegal to fix your own electron IX or almost twenty years from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Once upon a time when something you own broke, you fixed it we never even considered whether we were allowed to fix our products until the year two thousand when the digital millennium copyright act. Made it illegal to circumvent any tack that locked up devices without authorization. So John Deere started telling farmers it was a copyright violation to fix their tractors. And apple started telling us, it was a copyright violation to fix our. I phones just last month the US copyright office. Finally decided that you do have the right to fix your smartphone. Lots of other electronics and tractors to Kyle Wiens is CEO of I fix it. A company that creates repair guides for electron IX and tells tools and replacement parts he told me we may have the right to repair. But repairing things isn't as easy as it used to be. This is a trend is you add Electric's more things than we have diagnostic codes on the car can't really repair car without a computer anymore. You can't repair tractor without a computer. And so this is going to be a trend that will continue. Our products are going to get smarter. They're going to require an advanced diagnostic software noted fix them. What this ruling does is. It says look it's legal for you to make your own diagnostic software for you the break in maybe jailbreak your phone what's going to need to happen next in order to completely open this up as we're going to need right to repair legislation to get the manufacturers to share their diagnostic software with the rest of us. What do you think is the likelihood that people who are now on one year contracts or pay off plans? What do you think the likelihood is that all of a sudden they're going to start trying to repair devices and keep them around for a lot longer? One thing that I think is interesting about the trends of technology is that you have these bursts of innovation where device they're changing very rapidly. And we've gone through that with cell phones from when the iphone came out for the last decade or so the devices have been getting dramatically better every year. We're starting to see that Pluto. If you have an iphone ten you do not need to get knife on ten are is just not that much better. So where in the past? I think we've been up getting our phones, maybe every eighteen months. I think you're going to start to see people using things for too. Three maybe even four years, but not for the devices to last that long. You have to change out batteries, you have to fix a screen when it breaks. So this is the inflection point with cell phones that we went through with laptops. It used to be people with joke. You know, your laptop was out of date by the time, you got home from best buy, and that's just not the case anymore. You perfectly fine with a five year old laptop it, do you see downstream economic impact here is there a likelihood that more repair shops will crop up. I think so anytime you have a product that's going to last longer. You're going to see more service businesses pop up. And that's actually a really good thing for the economy. You know, the actual labor. The apple pays to assemble the iphone in China is relatively minor. If you take your phone, then and you pay somebody fifty dollars in labor together fixed that that's a serious benefit to the economy of actually completely outweighs the five or ten dollars. Apple may have paid assembly time. So as we see maybe tariffs come into play. They're going to make these devices more expensive, coupled with these trends where you don't really need a new phone. I think you're. Going to really c in the explosion. And the repair economy. That's Kyle Wiens CEO of I fix it. Things that still can't be repaired by third parties under the DMCA game consoles, like Xboxes, NPS, fours, boats and airplanes. And now for some related links. It's election day. So expect the misinformation machines to get turned up to eleven a digital -cation company called Bali male put out some research over the weekend saying that most adults in the US can't tell a fake campaign Email from a real one the party breakdown. Thirty six percent of Democrats spotted the fake Email that was supposedly from a current Senate candidate and twenty percent of Republicans could tell the difference only one person out of one thousand seventy nine correctly answered every question on the survey. It's a teachable moment. I guess. Next month. Google's chrome browser will start getting really aggressive about what it calls abusive ads who will will give web pages a warning and thirty days to clean up their act if it finds adds to abusive, and then chrome could potentially block every ad from a site that doesn't comply and so like how do we feel about Google having the power to just turn off sites? Revenue stream Mozilla Firefox browsers gotten more aggressive about third party trackers. So has apple safari? And I read a thought provoking piece about this a week or so ago on Forbes, it argued that browsers shouldn't be the helicopter parents of the internet and that cookies and trackers do actually deliver targeted advertising that in some cases people really like instead of delivering just as many ads that are totally random. It also argued that getting rid of these tools could benefit Facebook, Google and Amazon instead of smaller, publishers, and more importantly that. We consumers have plenty of ways to turn off intrusive advertising instead of having browsers decide for us. The article is from a digital app insider.

I'm Mark mills. This is Bloomberg. Doug. All right. I'm Doug krizner at Bloomberg interactive brokers studio in New York wanna let you know that the Australian market is up and running they've gone to daylight saving time down under the ASX. Two hundred is off one half. Half of one percent. William has is with us. He is co CEO head of research at PR. See macro, William always a pleasure to have you on the program. I'm curious is what do you make the PVC cutting the amount that banks have to hold in reserve over the weekend is triple are cut. How much has to do with concern about the economy, and how much has can does it have to do with maybe that the equity market falling out of bed potentially? I think both they're both related. I thank you know. So they they tried to downplay the need for this thing this interest. Swap out MLS maturity, isn't it? Also, some treasury deposits but realistically also over the weekend. We saw a major default in us. Bankruptcy of a major steel producer in Tianjin. So that that indicates that the credit narrative hasn't changed that we think the credit narrative is still driving the narrative in addition to the pen speech last week, and this kind of cloud hanging over a lot of industries in China. So we were expecting a triple are cut anyway. But I think after the speech last week, I think that kind of puts it up to the front of their agenda. How do you see this fitting in with the broader story about the trade wars this evidence that it's starting to bite for China? Well, yes. And I think the evidence is also indicating that this is going to go far beyond trade very quickly. And so the pen speech last week. I think it's something that people should really sit down. And listen to even though he's vice president. I think it's a very strong statement from the US and China's definitely taking it seriously. So what that setup is really, you know, an across the board clash of institutional values. And so it's very difficult to go from that to something that you just put into some numbers that reduces the trade deficit. So I think the signals coming out of Washington for a lot of a lot more beyond trade in the next year. So I think this is in the early stages of this whole process. It's interesting. We had a guest the last hour who's indicating that maybe the cloud would lift after the off term elections here in the United States. But I'm sensing that you think this is going to be kind of a protracted fight of sorts. Yes, I disagree with that view think what would pencil saying that this is, you know, I got a fundamental institutional clash, and so that's very difficult to back away from the oh, by the way, all those things are saying about China. They're no longer true. We're just talk about you know, soybeans. And and, you know, high tech stuff that doesn't make sense. So I think this is going to be a defining issue for for for Trump heading through this this first term, and assuming he's got to run for reelection that this is going to be something that he tries to seize on if only to distract attention from a whole range of domestic issues in the US. All right. Well, he when we continue the conversation, I'd like to talk a little bit about monetary policy, particularly from Chinese perspective and the degree to which they may continue to kind of manage the currency.
