Your Next Dive - Key Largo

"Last year my goal was to do a segment of your next dive where i featured key largo dive mecca here in the united states. I wanted to time this segment for just after we returned from key. Largo in april of two thousand and twenty. Well we all know how that turned out. We did not get there and again in two thousand and twenty one. We were not able to plan out an excursion as we would have hoped to. Two thousand and twenty two however is on the horizon. But i didn't wanna wait any longer to talk about key largo so here we go with your next dive where we travel to key largo florida. I think i've mentioned it before here on the podcast that my first is after getting a certification where with it's a dive located at the marriott hotel on the overland highway in key largo and it was fantastic. How about your first real dive being on a real historic wreck the city of washington a ship that was in havana harbor when the us main exploded and sank now. There are many reasons to choose key largo as your dive destination. Especially if you live in the eastern part of the united states first off. It's easy to get to. You can either fly into fort lauderdale. Which is my preferred airport. As i find it logistically navigate or miami which is a little closer to key Key largo you just hop in your rental car. That is if you can find one these days and head on down now. Let's talk a little bit about the dive. Operators in key largo as you can imagine being to dive. Mecca that it is. There are quite a number of operators to choose from it's a dive at the marriott is no longer operating but i will talk about two of the operators. I'm familiar with. They are horizon divers and rainbow reef now right after only a couple of months. After i did that first trip to key largo i returned and at that time. I drove with horizon divers back. Then they were located in marina at mile marker one hundred of the overseas highway and that was right next to the courtyard by marriott. Which at the time was a radison. It was very convenient to roll out of bed. Get a quick bite to eat and stroll over to the dive. Shot horizon has moved however and they are now located on the overseas highway at mile marker. One oh six. That's the dive shop in a retail store. Their boats are located about a half a mile up the road next to a place called shipwrecks oceanside now rainbow reef has taken over the old horizon diver facility at the mile marker one hundred marina additionally they also bought out ocean divers on the other side of the marina and have quite a large operation. Now the last time we were in key largo. We stayed at the courtyard and dove with horizon. We were going to go back to key. Largo in two thousand twenty and planned to die with rainbow reef. We didn't make it down there now. If you're looking to do more technical diving then. I think horizon divers maybe a better choice for the shallow reefs that i like rainbow reef might be a good option as they have those big forty six foot newton dive boats now. I have to admit that. I've never done the deeper wrecks down there like spiegel grove. Where the dwayne bid. But i love the shallow wrecks like the city of washington. The hanan bell. Also known as mike's wreck and especially the ben would. They are teeming with fish life and are great places to do fish identification and surveys. You can also experience of great dives on elbow reef molasses reef and french reef another great shallow dive through the book spurring grove. Karl is christ of the abyss. Dry rocks you can grit some great photo opportunities there. The water temperatures in key largo range from the mid seventies in the winter months to the mid eighties in the peak of the summer. When i dove in april of two thousand and nineteen. I was pretty comfortable on the shallow reefs with my three millimeter wetsuit. Only wanna do to morning dives. You can free up your afternoons for some topside adventures. A trip to reef headquarters Is interesting or you can take a tour of the coral restoration foundation and just down. The road is the history of diving museum in l. morada. I was really looking forward to getting to the museum last year and hope that i can make it down there next april. Talk about the dining. While if you're staying at the courtyard on the marina you don't have to get in your car and drive someplace you can just scroll stroll over skippers doc right on the marina. They have some great conch chowder. There and if you want a burger or some pub food than walk a little bit further down to dr sharpies shark bite grill. You'll probably run into some of the dive staff there hanging out now. Another great place to eat is the pilot house and that's located right near the coral restoration foundation very close by and and if you're in the mood for pizza then upper crust pizza at mile marker one zero one point six. Just make sure it's not. Wednesday is their closed. We made that mistake. So as i wrap up this segment. If you've been diving in key largo. I hope that you will agree that it is really a cool place to dive. And if you've never been there. I would encourage you to consider putting a trip there on your counter. I regret having taken fourteen years between visits. I'm not gonna make that mistake again.

'So Hard To Prove You Exist': Flawed Fraud Protections Deny Unemployment To Millions

"During the pandemic state unemployment systems have become a target for organized crime rings, they steal money through fraudulent claims but arguably a bigger problem is that some of the systems in place to prevent fraud like that have been hurting millions of innocent people. NPR's Chris Arnold reports when Sevi- guas lost his job as a food and beverage manager. Marriott Hotel near San. Jose he figured locale apply for unemployment. This was back in March he went online put in his info waited for weeks couldn't get through on the phone after more than a month he was told to mail and more proof of his identity mind driver's license picture of my past poor copy of my w. two she said the more documentation that I could put. In there to prove who I was would help out my case out his case Gouache had clearly lost his job with a big company had ide- what was the problem but this dragged on and on weeks would go by they need another documents and six months later, gouache still hadn't gotten any unemployment money manny can't find another job I had about seventeen. Thousand dollars saved gouaches thirty two years old, and he'd been saving up to go back to community college to try to become a computer programmer. He moved into a smaller apartment to save money but he still had to drain that entire savings for college. There's not enough left to pay rent next month to watch what I worked really hard to get dwindle away. I don't WanNa get angry in front of you for the interview. But it has been really really frustrating and the whole thing to seem so Kafka ask avoidable to him. It's so hard to just prove that you exist in California alone millions of people are having a hard time proving they exist as they struggle to get the unemployment benefits that they deserve and it turns out washes right? A lot of this was completely unnecessary.

WhatsApp Pay to Launch in India

"India a potentially decisive moment in digital freedom is going down right now. India's ruling party has put forward new rules that would allow it to trace and censor private communication. Standing in. Its way is what's up. An American made encrypted Messaging Platform. That's used by hundreds of millions of Indians and the outcome could have ripple effects across the globe. I'm Gabrielle Sierra. And this is why it matters today. India's government versus what's up and the looming threat of digital authoritarianism. India is the world's largest democracy if you can imagine nine hundred. Million PEOPLE VOTED. Alas national election last year out of a population of one point. Three billion people. It's just it's it's a massive exercise election. Yeah it's huge it's populace and that's what also makes it really fun and exciting to be on the ground. You certainly feel the energy especially in the city like Mumbai. Politicians routinely insult each other on the campaign trail criminals of every flavor. Run for office and win so do Bollywood movie. Stars Cricket Stars it just never ends has always been a fairly Jackie democracy. We talk a lot. We argue a lot that our culture. Okay so help me understand why. What's APP is such a big deal in India? How many people are actually using it? They're awfully four hundred million people. It is indeed this is Chinmaya ruined. She's a resident fellow at Yale. University and the founder of a research center at National Law University Delhi. She's also a leading legal expert on the intersection between freedom of speech and technology. And so why WHATSAPP wine? Not you know instagram or snapchat. The elite platforms are used by everyone. But what's happened? The one that really appeals to people if you have a phone that's not too fancy. If you don't speak English you don't read or you don't have access to inexpensive data connection. You can still use. What's APP so it started with? Hey you don't have to spend one rupee or two rupees per tax. You just save them up and then they send whenever you're in Wifi and saw a lot of people with not lot of money. Which is many many Indians decided that this works for them. And then what's up had these multimedia features which people started using it started liking and? I have mixed feelings about this because the good thing is that I get to talk to my grandma. And she finally has forgiven me for moving across cushy can look at my home and you know say things about my plants or whatever course but if you're sitting in an Indian airport and watching the number of people who do video calls subject you to their conversations mixed feelings what's up is really a messaging platform and that can be one messages like me sending a message to you. But it's also very commonly used in India for groups. I am do oil and I am a technology reporter for the New York Times based in Mumbai. India vindaloo also covers Indian economics and culture and has written extensively about free speech and misinformation under India's ruling party. We called him at his home in Mumbai on. What's up what's has become so embedded in life in India that people use it in their business transactions so you can order groceries from your corner grocery store over what's APP. I buy airline ticket from make trip. Which is one of the big online travel agencies? They send me a confirmation message on what's up with by e ticket details so for those of US based outside of India handling a basic transaction may require a few different platforms. You find out about a concert on instagram. Rsvp FOR IT ON FACEBOOK. Maybe share the notification on twitter buyer ticket on ticketmaster and received the confirmation on g mail but for Indians. What's APP is often the one stop shop for everything? In other words an application from Silicon Valley has become basic infrastructure for the second most populous nation honors. That's a pretty big deal and it helps. Illuminate why the government is pushing for greater control. What's up was founded in two thousand nine by two former employees of Yahoo? It's an American company. It was founded in Silicon Valley and they basically built a very simple messaging service became very popular. It caught the attention of Mark Zuckerberg the chief executive and founder of Facebook Zuckerberg beside it in two thousand fourteen to by what's APP and pay the still stock price of twenty two billion dollars for this message company so facebook is making a mobile push with steal the buy real time messaging service. What's APP? It's still a pretty incredible price to pay for a company that stress a few years old. It also makes tiny what's APP more valuable than some of the most established companies in the country including American Airlines Marriott hotels and Xerox and it came at a crucial moment for facebook when it really was trying to find ways to diversify its revenue base and also get in touch with more mobile users. I'm Seema mody global markets correspondent with CNBC business news and suddenly came this messaging platform. That was not only gaining prominence here in the US but around the world in fact I believe the average daily use a rate on WHATSAPP was much higher than Facebook Messenger. Facebook saw that and said this is such a strategic bet for us. Let's acquire it and find a way to really incorporated into our user base platform. But what's APP is free right. What's APP is free? And I think this is still a developing story to see how facebook is really trying to incorporate what's up into its business and you know will you one day see ads on what's that that's certainly been one of the big questions sucker. Berg was pressure in that. This technology of very simple messaging APP was going to become very popular today. Whatsapp has more than two billion users. Around the world it is by far the most popular messaging APP in the world and one of its biggest claims to fame. Is it emphasizes privacy. All messages on the service use. Something called end to end encryption. Okay so in most cases when you send an email or a text message it gets encrypted that means that the information inside is locked up in a code so that outsiders can't read it however the service providers that pass your message along can read it whether that's apple or G. Mail or facebook whoever they all have the keys to that code and that makes your message vulnerable enter end to end encryption with this technology none of the men have the keys. Only you and the person you're sending it to break the code. What's up can't read. Even if the government came knocking at the door of what's up what's up. What have nothing really to give up. And so your information is private and that makes it unique to other services messaging services like whether you're sending a text message or even facebook Messenger where that information does live somewhere. Yeah most other. Messaging Services in the world are not and encrypted and certainly none of the popular ones. But what's up has made it really easy. You don't think about corruption it just is encrypted Because so much of India's communication happens on WHATSAPP end to end. Encryption has made it very difficult for the government to investigate messages in the name of national security. People are not making phone calls anymore. They're not even walking over to their neighbor. Say This texting and where the speech there is harmful speech. It's not news that social media can bring out the worst in people the platforms. We use everyday are teeming with sexism. Racism misinformation and violent ideologies. It's the same. In India or social media has amplified problems that are a lot older than the internet rumors and lies spread like wildfire across the Internet including across chat and applications. Like WHATSAPP Many I. I'm used US India or live. Whatever comes in the woods his true the one that's really made the headlines is there was a lot of fishers. He'd speed circulating on what's APP so for example. The Muslim community is under quite a lot of pressure in India. Right now and it's really sad one of the ways in which they're discriminated against is that some upper caste. Hindus don't eat beef and so the rumors circulating on what's apple say things like X. has beef in his fridge are why is transporting COW CARCASS. And since it's already been sold to people as it stretched to their religion when a rumor like that reaches people that already feel threatened and feel like these people are out to get all the Hindus and they're trying to destroy religion by eating beef and Lynch mobs attacked them and their popularly called. What's APP lynchings? Early twenty eighteen. There was a wave of false messages. On whatsapp about child kidnappers prowling parts of India. Trying to steal people's children and this panicked a lot of people and mobs attacked strangers in various parts of India and killed them. Beat the Tied the mob hung them all kinds of terrible things. More than twenty people died in just the span of a few months because of these rumors and after these rumors started appearing the central government. When after what's happened said you need to find a way to trace these messages and stop these messages. And this set off a feud with what's out that has still not been resolved. The government says it doesn't WanNa read your messages. The government says they don't want to spy on the content of messages. They're not asking what's up to break the encryption of messages and show them what's in the messages but they are saying. Is You need to be able to trace back the pathway of a message. And you have to find a way to do that because if you have some message goes viral we WANNA find out who sent it and we'll see what happens. I mean what's up has said that to that would require significant changes to their service and they haven't said whether they'd be willing to make such changes to their

Vasek Pospisil on Coronavirus Impact, Tennis Hiatus

"This week we talked to Varsha Pospisil I wanted to get an athlete perspective. Like so many people in the world and athletes job has suddenly been disrupted and income has stopped coming in competition stopped. They're no longer going to their equivalent of the office and they're trying to figure out what comes next and volcanic was great. He is in western Canada right now. In like so many of us is in this cosmic holding pattern. So we talk about what? It's like for an athlete. Their career suspended and we talk a little bit about tennis politics. As well of course we would not even a global pandemic caused tennis to unite quite the contrary on Tuesday. We got news at the French Open was unilaterally grabbing these dates in late September early October for a hopeful reschedule the twenty twenty French Open This caused quite a bit of consternation in tennis land. We talk about that in a number of other topics so Nice conversation with one of the good guys. Here's Varsha Hospital. We are recording this Wednesday about noon. East Coast time. I appreciate you doing this. Yeah this is strange strange times and I figured we. Can you know you can always talk tennis? Politics Plum. I'm more interested in what life is like for you. How how are you doing? What are you doing? I'm doing okay. I'm while I've I've back to Canada about four five days ago. Came from from southern California. Were Indian Wells and Sonam in isolation basically. I'm I'm staying home. I'm trying to learn how to cook which is not going so well. I'm trying not to go out. And obviously you know it's really important to be to be responsible now especially as the spire spreads and Um so I just Especially for the older population. I mean that's that's the the biggest risk right so yeah very very strange times and very talk times. I mean this is You know not fun right now. That's for sure and it's Think the world's in top place right now in your in Vancouver right yeah. I'm I'm in Vancouver. Yeah to kid. Can you go you know run around Stanley Park? Can you do anything to stay in shape? Yeah you can. I mean there's It's a it's a recommended quarantine at the time at this time. It's not a mandatory one. Ah so you can go outside But I mean I'm only going outside to work to run in the in the park and try not to to make contact with anybody. Obviously because I think right now I said You know until we fully understand this this thing. It's it's important to to kind of make sure you distance yourself from from people so I'm spending about ninety percent of the time it indoors or more I should say and And trying to do work out here as well have been doing some like you know. Sit Bodyweight stuff. Sit ups push ups the in these kinds of basic things to do when I was a kid so Yeah just trying to do what I can. But which is talk. When you're you're indoors all day. Do you have a time in your head? What are you thinking? I anticipate coming back in time. And how is this playing out mentally? No I'm I'm You know I don't think anybody really knows how long it will take. I mean I think it's pretty safe to say that the next couple of months. Are you know pretty much a scratch in terms of in terms of the tennis tour? I'm not sure Novica announcements even unofficially. I'm not sure but I don't see. Don't see that being the case and obviously now we saw the rolling girls changed their dates. So you know clearly they're not expecting Think say improve very quickly either and But at the same time we never know but I'll be very surprised if if if there were any tournament. Thanks next to two months or three months so it sounds like this is as much a mental challenge of physical. One you can. You can get yourself back and playing shape but if you don't know when that next event is gonNA come. It must be hard to mental mentally account for a comeback. Yes it is and and the other thing is I mean it. Yeah it definitely is because we're not we're not used to training are playing without A target in mind in terms of the next competition is either. You're you're not trading because you're injured and then when when you're you know Healed up then you have an idea of when you want to start playing in your training for that in mind. So it motivates you and your training with a purpose right now you kinda feel You know that a anything we do right now could be completely pointless so it's also not a bad time to rest body because the tennis season is so long and we never really get time to rest to rest which is which is also important right so I mean that's that's one thing I'm not really intending are pushing my body too much next couple of weeks for sure and and even so. I'm not quite sure when when it'll be time to push the body. I'll just try to stay. You know relatively Relatively good shape just to be more more so just to be ready to handle handle workload once. It's time to start training so I don't think I'll know that for a while. I wonder if if you guys don't say this is. This is now a sport where you play into your late thirties. Maybe it's a disguised. Blessing that at age twenty nine you. You've got this three month period of inactivity the two up yeah. I mean yeah well in terms of yeah in terms of You know arrests for the body. It's definitely like a good thing To to to have a bit of a break obviously You know nobody. You know you don't want it to be in circumstances like this. You don't want a virus to be the reason you know a global threat to be a reason for that but but But of course yeah there are some some things you can some positives of some things you can take for sure. But but overall it's Not Idealistic Get can I ask you about about income about finances? We all saw that Jovovich and the doll and they deserve every penny they. They've made as far as I'm concerned but some players have the means to To whether this no problem but how our players getting through this with no income source while I mean I. I've been very fortunate. I mean I'm I'm in a difference You know a little bit different position where I've I've been able to save up some money over. The years had good results. So so I'm I'm just in a very fortunate state where where you know. This doesn't necessarily impact me in a very big way. So I'm I'm very lucky in but that's not the case with as you can see with most most people in the world in general and and in Tennessee as well as tough because You know if you're you're not a consistent let's say top fifty player big results or had money saved up. Then you know the players that are outside of the top hundred there there You know I'm sure they're in very very difficult situations. And not just a unfortunate reality and and I'm not really sure what what The tour will will do if they will do anything. I'm pretty sure they're they're working on solutions right now to help those with with lower incomes. help them financially. Because I think you know they're obviously the ones that that that probably needed needed. Most you know having said that obviously affect everybody right suddenly you don't have income and your expenses are always high even though maybe now they're not so much but but Yeah I mean I think I think it affects the tennis world just as much as as It affects you. Don't a lot of a lot of other industries obviously minus atop the top ranks players. That have made a lot of money. Yeah exactly and you're you're right. We should point Mrs something that Every Marriott hotels in every restaurant in the world everyone is wrestling with the same issue at some level I mean have you heard our players sticking with their coaching arrangements? I mean are. You're not probably expenses. But they're still expensive for players. Have you heard about tennis players? Making adjustments there no haven't really Other than just what will you know what I'm doing personally? I haven't really You know I'm not really aware of what what's been going on with the other players and their arrangements in the coaching. I mean it's I think I think It's just kind of a tough tough time. Where were suddenly you know even coaches and physios and fitness trainers were were? Nobody's making any in common But you know I I think it depends on the the agreements that that each player has with their teams individually. So it's I think there's still a lot of question marks that I think will be answered next couple of weeks. I think once you know maybe there's a bigger delay announced for now. The official announcement is still just six weeks of the tour being cancelled which like. I said. We'll be much more on it. I think once not announcement comes up. And maybe maybe there'll be some changes In around the you know the player often and compensation not sure it's a very interesting and Yeah I think we're just kind of thinking on our feet day-to-day and taking it as it comes right now. I mean a week ago. They that announcement came out about a six week. Delay and I think everybody was fairly shocked. And now boy if we get back out there in six weeks it'll be. It'll be a tremendous achievement. For for all of us. I never mind tennis. That will I think get off the very opportunistic. Get back to your actually totally. I mean I remember. Yeah when the announcement I came you know when Indian Wells was cancelled obviously Things have just EXCO. It's so much so quickly since then that that I mean it's it's. It's pretty incredible that week ago. We all surprised by the announcement. The whole tennis world in all the players were like. Oh Wow that's you know that's crazy like that's that's incredible and then L. Let's go on and then you know a few days later. There's just so many cases around North America and accelerated such such a speed that now it just seems unconceivable. That even be any tennis for for next while so Yeah interesting times and and I don't think six weeks is realistic right now. So

What China wants with Equifax data

"That big Equifax data breach couple years back. Hackers got hold of the names birthdates and social security numbers of one hundred forty five five million of US federal prosecutors announced charges in that case today charges against four members of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. This is the latest. If by far the largest in a string of hacks that American officials have tied to Beijing. Marketplace's Amy Scott has more now on how China might use that trove of data. It's got in a press conference attorney. General William Bar described the equifax breach as more evidence of China's voracious appetite for Americans personal data including the theft of personnel records from the Office of personnel management the intrusion into Marriott hotels anthem health insurance companies and and now the wholesale theft of credit and other information from Equifax. Chinese officials have denied any connection to previous hacks but cybersecurity. I security experts say there are lots of reasons China might want that data priscilla more. Ut is a researcher with the security intelligence firm recorded future richer. She says sensitive financial information like debts could be used by Chinese spies to target potentially vulnerable Americans so building thank profiles of individuals that could be susceptible to recruitment by Chinese intelligence services. Georgetown Professor Ben Buchanan wrote a book about Cybersecurity. Called the hacker and the state he says the data could also help China identify Americans operating undercover in Beijing. But my guess is the biggest determining factor. Here Why the Chinese did this is they could and Why not take it and why not see what might be useful down the line Buchanan? You can and says it's exceptionally unlikely. Chinese hackers will see the inside of an American courtroom but the charges do send a message that the US government is trying trying to track and deter foreign hacking. I'm AMY SCOTT FOR

Cruising with Norwegian CEO Andy Stuart

"Been on a number of cruises in my life in about half of them have been on Norwegian. I'm a huge fan of their haven product. That place to get away from it all and they've been innovating a lot these days Especially in sustainability today. I'm very thankful to have as my guest. Andy Stewart. CEO and president of Norwegian cruise line. Andy thank you so much which for joining us. Thanks for having me Brian. Great to be here. So you've been at Norwegian. I would like almost as old as I am not to age US or anything but actually no. You've been there for thirty one year and I'm thirty six so that start out on a light to Juliette thank you. Did you always know that you want it to be in the cruising business. No absolutely absolutely no I had no idea what cruising was all about when I met someone or the softball game length sweater and a year later they called me up and offered me a job. This is so fascinating so many leaders in the travel space. We get to talk to a lot of them at talking points. Come and almost. None of them wanted to do what they're doing today. So you by chance met someone and and was this at Norwegian or another competitor before the and I was working for Marriott Hotels Hotel Business MET This lady softball game. She was called lender sweater and wanted bovine. Ever got it back and then she called me a year later and said there was his job at Norwegian cruise line I thought cruising was something for blue haired ladies second husband I had no idea. Yeah that was a modern cruise industry. So they told me all about modern cruise industry are joint region and as you say thirty one years later I'm still here. How would you save? Running a cruise line is similar hospitality. You're a floating hotel but we are. We're we're a pretty complex floating hotel so there aren't many hotels that have more than twenty dining choices this is the ron many hotels that have racetracks and virtual reality pavilions in full Broadway shows and I could go on and on and on. We're a very complex operation and then we've all got to do it in a very tight space. All of our employees live with us. They don't go home at night so there's a lot of complexities of the cruise industry. That hotels don't face. I'm sure they have other the competition. The cruise industry is unique in many ways. And that was my interpretation years ago when I first started cruising but especially with Norwegian you guys is you know we've done a bunch of coverage on your ships in terms of four family travelers. I know our family travel. Division is really excited with the concepts that you've been coming out not only early on the go kart race trucks which I saw your commercial about that as someone who has a moderate fear of heights I think that would freak me out a little bit. And there's no safety concerns with that is there. I guess talk thoroughly tested that have you yourself been on the go. Kart as the new shape. Actually we go out thirteen feet of the edge of the ship. So it's a pretty exciting experience so on November second Norwegian encore set. Say Oh this is your biggest to date. What is it twenty deck high? You Go karts before but this isn't even longer go. Yeah the tracks long ago. We can't leave it off the edge of the ship it has more turns more opportunities overtaking. It's a very very exciting experience on top of the ship. It's eleven hundred and fifty defeat long and I used to be a tour guide at the University of Pittsburgh and we had this huge forty two story cathedral on campus and that was five hundred thirty five feet tall. So it's kind of wild for me to think about about this crucial being longer than two of the Cathedral. learnings in Pittsburgh put together. Do you have more bigger ships in the works the next class of ship slightly smaller. We have six six more ships on order that start in two thousand twenty two calling that Leonardo class gives it a little more flexibility with where we take that next series of ships and as I said we have six of them delivering between twenty twenty two and twenty twenty seven so we have a lot of capacity coming but it gives us a variety. We have a class of ship in the two thousand four hundred passenger range class in the four thousand range and now a class in the three thousand three hundred range so that gives a lot of choices. We spread off fleet further failed across the globe. We have a lot of flexibility in in terms of Solo travelers. I I know you guys have been kind of leading the pack there with the Solo Cabins. You've got the solo section of the ship and your. We've looked in our research. I mean those sellout sometimes months in advance so we try to appeal to a very broad audience. And you've talked about the family. Market is a very big couples market. We saw opportunity in the solo travel market and this is having having people who want to travel on their own. Feel very comfortable to do so. And so we have a number of rooms designed and price for the solo travel cruise industry was gets a bad rap that you charge twice as a solo traveler. We don't we have rooms designed and priced for Solo travelers. And then we have a lounge the just the solo travelers share and someone can put up on the board. Hey having dinner in the steakhouse not everyone wants to join me. It's a very comfortable way. The people to travel on their own and there are more and more people who liked to travel on the road with success stories of people who get married from those cruises. Oh you're all about hooking up. Of course they're all those happy stories have has anyone asked you to officiate. No no yeah no I have nothing. Seen us to officiate but one day one day and this episode's being recorded during the UN General Assembly. Week you're here. In New York for important announcement you know. Were just steps away from where the climate action summit is happening across the travel. Space every single travel leader has to be focused on sustainability especially within cruising which historically has not I had the best reputation on sustainability. Although you guys are doing a lot so let's just talk about the big announcement to reduce plastic on board. Yeah so Norwegian we've sustainability as you rightly say is incredibly important for us. We've set off still out to really be a leader in the area of sustainability and sometime ago we established this goal to eliminate all single use plastics across the entire ship. We started with plastic straws last year. And we then did a list of every single use plastic on the ship and one of the most impactful is plastic water bottles. You walk around the see a Lotta people with plastic water bottles. were selling plastic water bottles and we saw an opportunity to completely eliminate plastic water buffalo so as of January the first twenty twenty will eliminate all plastic water bottles across our entire fleet that will eliminate six million plastic water bottles during a year. And so we're very excited about it. It's and it's not easy to do. We went out looking for the right partner and we were thrilled to find a company called just just goods that produced this water just water and they have put a huge amount of energy into a container that is recyclable. Renewable and really early changes the dynamic when it comes to plastic water bottles. So we're absolutely thrilled with this announcement. We think is a huge debt. But it's a step in the journey. This is rarely end of the journey. It's one step and we're going to continue to check off that list and work our way down and you know who just produce more products that helps us do that. And of course there will be other companies that will help us on that journey. Not Everything's possible yet. We want to lead this. We want to be way ahead of regulation. This is not about a company trying to meet and chase regulation. It's about a company trying to do the right thing. Employees are passionate about it. It guests are passionate about it. Shareholders passionate about it. This is something that everyone who's associated with our companies passionate about this area and we have have to do more and this is one step in that
