California Bill Targets Fast-Paced Working Conditions at Warehouses
"Lawmakers are weighing the first legislation of its kind. Which could give warehouse workers new power to fight speed quotas. Npr's alina seljuk reports. Hurry hurry hurry send you about. Eta says that's how it felt when she worked at an amazon warehouse in southern california. All you see people bending down scanning every individual items getting to screening individual items scanning to wayne it out having to run to the other side put it in the conveyor and start over again. She rotated through several jobs for ten hours a day. she would bend twist reach scan. Unwrap re wrap hoping to hit two hundred items. Our i rarely ever saw anyone to use the restroom or less you know. They talked to some morley. Do mind scanning this item like every three minutes just so might time off. Task doesn't accumulate cover for time off. Task is carefully watched by amazon. The company says it's to make sure all technology is in working order but also to identify underperforming workers too much time off task over time and the algorithm can flag you as a slacker and get you fired some workers leg bharata who is now an organizer with a warehouse. Workers resource center have argued that the pace of work is unhealthy unsustainable. That's what prompted new legislation by california assemblywoman laurenti gonzalez were absolutely targeting. The practices of amazon that are being picked up quite frankly by other retailers the legislation. Ab seven one is a rare bill to specifically target large warehouses. It's complex but has two key themes the main one says productivity quotas cannot come at the expense of health and safety. If they do the bill would give workers more legal power to fight them. The second is transparency giving workers the representatives and government officials more access to detailed records of quotas and workers actual rates. What we know is that amazon workers get hurt. Twelve times as often as other warehouse

"How do we. How do we reach those people to get them to understand whether you're the deniers or whether you're the the as yukon the career fair people what do we what do we need to do to bring them in. And maybe maybe we need to understand. Help them understand why they feel that way and what we can do to help them change their change their thought process. Okay so Step one stop watching netflix. I i was not ready for that. So i was not why. Why do we need to stop watching that flexible. That's great because they are wasting their time. You know it's like the world is going into direction where there's going to be ten percent of people doing all the work ninety ninety percent of people not having much to do the way that are going if it continues the way that is going because the age of middle classes is over. Yeah people are Madrid people in the west. I feel like they have especially you know. Our generation millennials Dave not seen difficulty if not seen adversity yet. This is like this generation After world war two the baby boomers agassi. They created the The middle class. Has you know everything was going upwards in everything was going better. You could get a job after five years. You could knew that you'd be able to have enough money for deposit of a house and then you would be able to get mortgage you know how to family. That's not going to be the case for our generation because the nature of technology is deflationary. Because i as technology moving forward more and more people are job because we're not going to need that many people who don't have unique amazing skills so what we need the cut this book although yes it tells you how to Have a better career in the future. But the truth is the steps. The things that i talk about in the book they are not for everybody. This is not the kind of thing you know. It's not a book that's like you know emmanuel for how to get the job like how to write a better seavy. It's not that kind of thing you know. You need to come a unique worker unique person. You need to develop maltese skills. You need to be multi skilled and you need to be highly highly skilled in your soft skills or you know what i call human skills just emotional intelligence contextual creativity. Mindfulness and critical thinking. And those things take time to develop. So if you are you know have twenty four hours. Eight hours of sleep. You need that right. I used to sacrifice sleep. And i realized you know from reading a lot in it and thinking a lot about where i'm going to go and i was like what i'm doing is not sustainable. I need to get enough sleep. Okay so if i'm gonna get enough sleep. Then i have sixteen hours to work right and out of those sixteen hours I definitely need to give an hour for exercise. Okay i can listen to an audio book while i'm on treadmill and i'm doing my workout. I need maybe a bad of fourteen minnesota. So for general kind of things like say a meditation and things like that twenty minutes to shower so it about fourteen hours who work fourteen hours to work right so what. I'm suggesting in the book. If you are going to be in that top ten percents. This book is written for people who want to be in the top ten. Set if you're going to be the top temps then you need to work for fourteen hours. I'm not talking about work as in. Sit down and like you know just like not. Talking argument repetitive things. When i say works. Let's say out of that. Fourteen hours four to six hours of paraguay should be dedicated to research and development. Learning new skills when i say working over. I'm sitting here practicing linear algebra. I'm working as part of work. I think about newtonian and i aside. You know like dot. Org beh- using so many. I think so. Many people. And i know that there is a group of people who would say oh. Well this is millennials. Origen zad or even some Late xers but people are going so many work. I wanna work that hard i want. That's already than i'm sorry. The way things are going. I know you want to tell you what you want to hear or do you want me to tell you the truth. The truth is that

Marten DB with Jeremy Miller
"Talk a bit about mother nam. now i through my My professional career. I've only ever interacted with a sequel based database. So i know the martin You describe it. But i know the mountain is a document based database although i know like the theory of without entails and how it works absolutely no experience of of that in real life so i apologize in advance in case i ask any kind of silly questions that you think. You should know this jimmy. 'cause i really don't now no no. That's okay help. In a relational database that all of us at some point in time most of those probably still using today most also probably using ten years because it's so entrenched on data's is organized in terms of tables of columns and rows it is a two-dimensional piece of data and the world is much more complicated than that. So of course you know. An order has ordered details. person has dependence. Has these things these things so then you start pick up relationships between tables but still working really hard to represent your world as tables columns rose so on and so forth. that's great it's awesome reporting fantastic for some of the early work. I did in my career What supply chain work ordering parts like that but in the real world when you're talking about now the behavior my code the world higher. I mean heavy user. But i have type. Caesar is parts but have different parts or God forbid if you get into financial software would you represent trades in finance world. Each kind of trade has totally different set of set of data. But yet you still want to try to fit that to relational databases and things get starting really nasty as problem domains in places where maybe you have a lot. Polymorphism maybe have. Very deep hierarchies One of the projects kelvin. The works on right now. Our clients problem domain as a everything relates to a top level entity comma person but that person has up to two or three dozen other kinds of related entities and breaking that. Down into mapping that to relational database. You run into the old impedance mismatch of the way that data once the shaped in your code where it's all about behavior becomes very different than how relational database forces you to structure so here. I'm i'm trying to prove out that relational database is not not the end. All be all for some some problem domains so in document database will. We're trying to do is. We're trying to persist that that person basically just laid it and bypass a lot of this mapping so taking the example of martin and martin sits on top. Now we can talk about why martin on top of the post grad database. But what what martin's doing is taking your object instead of mapping individual columns tables whatnot. It's jason serializing your your document and stuffing a database. Somewhere to all your mapping problems. Go away as long as jason reliable. You're good to go fantastic. I like that idea because like you said there are just some things that cannot be maintained in. That sort of relational status right. There are only so many foreign case and join tables and also craziness like that until you stop bullying. At least in my instance. Bowling was left of your hair out. Trying to figure out i do. I get this data and that data and then you look at Entity framework and you end up pulling he'd tire object graph On his one piece of day there august a bit much to to to organize. I guess keeping your head as well if you've got fifteen different tables in the role into related you have to be able to keep all of that in your head on a piece of paper and explain it to someone else right yes. So you're saying that martin. Debbie i can just give it if my like you said if your objectives jason realizable i just he do i. J sunset realize it on just to mountain. Handles you tell. Marty you tell martin. I want to store the subject. And there's there's a few extra requirements martin has to figure out what the identity is of your object easily just as long as you have an. Id proper your field and you can override this explosive stuff. you absolutely have to be special indifferent. Different people do but as martin can figure out what the identity is and it can be Jas on that's that's enough Martin will take care of everything else for it. Moreover martin postcards has some special up capability where it's very efficient to observe. It's so we don't even make you care. We don't even make you tell martin unless you really want to whether it's an insert or an update. Just i want to persist. This and martin will get the. Id for you. It will sign it if it has just like. You're used to the core and it'll persist it to the right table if you working in development time with a developing mode on Martin build the necessary underlying tables by itself for on the so. You can focus on getting stuff. Done thinking about your problem domain. Evolve your your your model objects as you need to. And don't even think about database migrations or structure or anything like that. Just go on what you're really trying to do.

The Rey Rivera Case
"Where we left off yesterday captain, they had just found missing ray Rivera's body inside the Belvedere tell which is now primarily being used for condominiums. And he has crashed through the roof. We still do not know for what reason and his lifeless body is found inside the building. Array had multiple injuries including lacerations, fractured ribs, punctured lungs, of course, suggesting that he had fallen from a height into this room. Some of raise injuries are stated to be consistent with a fall while others are stated not to be and in particular, they cite his tibias being fractured. The medical examiner will go on record saying that this does not seem to be consistent with a fall that would be your shins. Correct. also found we have raised flops that were found on the roof near the whole that he crashed through. One broken and one with fresh drag marks raise glasses are found and they appear to be in good shape. His cellphone is found the phone has scratches on it, but it is not broken. It's in working order raise money clip. which was engraved wedding gift from Alison. That she and his brother say he always carried with him. They do not find this on raise person or on the rooftop. Other than that it seems pretty consistent the what allison and others believe he would have left with him that day taken with him when he left the House that day. Everything was found on him with him or on the rooftop and I'm assuming they never found the money clip backout his house or any. Then right this was not found on him never been located at all I think it'd be something that would be completely washed away from the story. Had it been recovered? Okay. So the problem with a lot of this is the whole itself. And where Ray is found. According to unsolved mysteries, there were three possible places from which ray could have jumped. Or maybe been pushed her from to end up going. Creating that whole and then crashing down into that unoccupied room and for people who haven't seen episode I am going to post all these pictures. There's a bunch of pictures of the actual hotel or Condo complex whatever you. WanNa call it.

Police Data Reveals Stark Racial Discrepancies in Social Distancing Enforcement Across New York City
"But this pandemic has highlighted New York struggles with longstanding issues that are among the worst we face and that's what we're going to discuss today early this month over one gloriously beautiful weekend new Yorkers of all walks of life poured outside filling the city's parks hang out on sidewalks saying hello to friends and neighbors and not always standing six feet apart the images that emerge from that weekend were striking on social media they were pictures of a lawn and one New York City park credit with people mainly white folks who are not socially distance and there was a video of violent arrest of an African American man who went to the hospital because of injuries sustained during an incident by Monday of last week there were new calls to release the data on arrests made for social distancing violations and on Friday the NYPD did release the numbers and they show that eighty one percent of all the arrests were of African American and Latin next voters and your car's public average money Williams was one of those who call for the arrest and summons data to be released he joins us now to talk about policing in New York during a corona virus outbreak Jumanji welcome to all of it thanks for having me appreciate so the dad of the NYPD released last week was for all the rest since the stay at home orders were issued in mid March how long had you and community leaders been asking for the data on social distancing arrest to be released what we reached out to the mailbox seven weeks ago a soul mate six saying that the focus on arrests and summonses we're going to re exacerbate historic problems and we actually gave it a completely different plans that could be executed of course we got a list of all three weeks ago we thought well this data because we started getting all information are about there are desperate district important added value I figure that'll be that Bob when they first initially ignored us and one finally got the gala it was astonishing to me ninety two percent of arrests black and brown sixty percent black in Brooklyn forty people arrested thirty five a black for black America thank you mention to some of the rest was was pretty appalling to complement a ministration we actually got elected because they said they were gonna do police in different what had you advocated for then that early proposal well even if you go back two months ago one of the main problems that yes city in the state with the governor and the mayor never had a clear message to begin are we start using words like quarantine lockdown but they never did make will never have the government issue you want to call it Paul he's going detente think about it we were construction sites open liquor stores males walking around all day long so we had a muddled message to begin to the extent that we start trying to unify the message we said let's have a holistic community response and so make every city agency involved fire department EMT NYPD sanitation try to get into a ball this call messaging on their vehicles let's have automated messaging will maybe locals are after five found let's get the emergency broadcast involved with the pick on every TV station let's get the cure violence which all groups that deal with violence communities will credible messengers let's get the clergy ball so we can be unified education all these communities but that was rejected and instead what we saw was policing and Chelsea pier people having amassed if anything being if we disturb them at all and then another few minutes people being punched in the face and fall to the ground it was very appalling to reach the same communities that have been ravaged distantly by cold over nineteen to begin again by some of the same people who will focus on what when it came to police you are a vocal critic of stop and frisk policing which also targeted black and Latino voters and it applies here is also opposed how concerned are you about the echoes of stop and frisk here I have been here to be concerned about echoes of over policing and district police what I dealt with the abuse Mustafa question Christopher van but you know even though we can get this abuse of course system and check it doesn't do anything about the over policing happens to black and brown communities so whether it will stop question first obviously broken windows how we didn't social distancing the problem is policing in black and brown communities what public health and public safety meeting black and brown communities what kind of building in the principle of transparency meet indiscriminate this administration has more for in some ways when it comes to transparency and accountability they've actually gone backwards even worse and when Giuliani Bloomberg in certain aspects I must disappoint my guess is public advocate Germany Williams you know there was such outcry on social media and everywhere actually after a video was posted of a violent arrest in the Lower East Side of a of a gentleman Mr Wright who was hospitalized reply zero and usually characterized videos of violent arrest as isolated incidents but he started talk about the need for more consistent enforcement what is consistent enforcement look like to you well first we should start with we don't need to open a conversation with the force and that was the problem the government almost among many things that you probably need to enforce this and that is sadly the mayor didn't take us up on our offer a few weeks ago he seems to be revisiting that and so that click here we also want to make sure we were not using the terminology or mark a mystery like actually is like yours you know the frequency is very small and it's not normal because one we have to stop complaining frequency in normal everyone will tell you that the vast majority of these characters and very well that's a good shake but that doesn't mean that the small amount that doesn't involve that doesn't mean that it's not normal for it to happen in black and brown communities so that is still mobile even if it's the least frequent so we have to be clear about that stop telling people they're not experiencing what they're experiencing and so we want to make sure that before committing it's not the main tool but to the extent you have to involve them like Pete it should be equitable you should be doing the same type of policing in every community so it seems that we know how to police we're just not doing it in every community my guess is public advocates Imani Williams you call for the department of justice to open an investigation into the impact of the corona virus on communities of color what's your end goal with this why did you call for the investigation but I also want to just start out looking for presents Eric Adams in the park if we reached out to thirty five elected officials across the country are all experiencing disparity impact and we said one of the J. to investigate there's nobody left to getting off now we do know who runs your cable we're hoping that the lifelong investigators were there will take you seriously and there's no workplace is not happening then probably New York state in New York City we have quite literally among the worst impact on planet earth and that is not just because of the federal government because of bill the bald eagle and more importantly it because of a governor you calm so what many people see more TV every single day what they don't know what the decisions you're making or not making have been extremely harmful to New York state and New York City and that's why we're seeing among the worst on planet earth and that's why the disparity is there because we do not Christina you can act open up and actually we just never adapted even as we got the information coming before that you have there's one small change you could make or enact tomorrow that you think would have a a big impact what would that be what we have to be honest about where we are the mistakes that we made and dedicated resource and funding to those communities immediately the virus doesn't discriminate but our responses and policies do and they have we just have to acknowledge that so when we look at the budget with the governors have cut Medicaid and trying to cut them to handle it out more and you look at the city budget when the mayor is trying to cut every single you job that exists in the summer while leaving NYPD homeless we know what happened so we must have a Phil Simmons that's a hundred percent but we have to use all the tools that we have so we need the government to look at every rate options will people own luxury yachts and planes left little who acted look at and he has secondly we have to get the resources for testing and contact tracing do begin mentally particularly is committed to working order while making sure that the information on the contact rate you've never used for third party never use for anyone besides people who are how to follow HIPAA laws and we can assure people that will be used for anything else psychotic and eventually

The Big Story
A thrilling naval rescue off the coast of Nova Scotia
"When things start to go wrong on the open ocean sometimes they go really wrong really quickly. We make really good boats. We have state of the art navigation systems and we have all the emergency measures in the world to prevent disaster still. We don't belong there. The Sea is not our turf. And if you've ever seen a movie about a nautical disaster it's not that far off from reality about a year ago off the eastern coast of Canada. Things went really wrong really quickly. And all that state of the art technology wasn't working when that happens the boat and its crew can't do much outs but put out an emergency distress call and pray that somebody answers it and that those people are close enough to help and if they're really lucky at the ships that answer. The call are part of the Royal Canadian Navy and are prepared to undertake one of the most dramatic. Rescues that you'll hear about outside of a Hollywood pitch meeting. This is the story of that rescue. I'm Jordan he throwing. This is the big stars. Nick Taylor busy of Maclean's chronicled the whole dramatic tale. An hello first of all what is the McKenna McKenna is a forty nine foot yacht. It's called the Hanse four ninety five. It was on the inside of beautiful boat. I don't know a whole lot of boats but I saw some photos Of the cabin and it was decked out you could wash dishes on that thing you could sleep very comfortably and you could sail the high seas. It's a fairly rich person vessel. Yeah I mean it's the kind of you buy when you have some money to buy a boat. So what happened to her well The owner of the boat was named John Hagen. He's a surgeon who lives here Toronto. And he asked a broker who is in the area where he should by boat so John and the broker whose name was pat sturgeon Had A few conversations and they found the McKenna in Greece. In this Mediterranean port called left us their mission was to buy the boat and then find a way to get her to Canada. How do you get a boat to Canada when you buy it overseas? I mean I guess. There's an obvious answer to that question. Well Yeah I mean you you usually on the water but there are a few options you can. You can bring a boat over in a container ship shipped almost package kind of thing or if you want to maybe save a little money depending or have a little more flexibility you can hire skipper to get on that boat. Hire a small crew and take it where you want. And this is what he did. And that's what he did. So tell me. But the the captain and the crew and and I guess what Rupert Mondro does because this is a job that I didn't know existed. It's an unbelievable story. How he started doing what he's doing he was born in South Western. England in Devon Place called barnstable. He was a trained actor at one point. He had his own company. He went bankrupt. He told me at the age of Twenty Eight. He was Drifting around I think thinking what do I do next at that point and so he got on a boat and loved. It started sailing and eventually he started delivering goods because he was very good. Skipper and so twenty five years. He did that until the he was he was hired to bring the McKenna across the Atlantic But he he's just a natural born c fair when you talk to him about it You know it's it's like he was born on the water and the way people talk about him is a remarkable. They say it's almost as if he doesn't need instruments he he can sail the seas just by sort of you know putting his finger in the wind and saying little now the waves are gonna come this way so we better go this way and You know he has autopilot. And all the fancy instruments but He's he's been spent the latter half of his life Just having fun sailing boats around the world and he's gone almost everywhere so he captained the McKenna taking it. I guess from Greece to Canada. Yeah he he brought crew And a cook And in October of two thousand eighteen they they met in in Greece and they spent a few days. They're getting ready Inspecting the boat making sure everything was in working order. It was by all accounts. A beautiful boat the McKenna was in very good condition and And ready for the voyage. He said By text to John. The surgeon Looking wonderful we're GONNA get going and so. They sailed through the Mediterranean. They had to stop in Italy everywhere. They talked with scenic about away but they stopped in Italy to fix a a steering problem fixed. It kept going. Stop at Gibraltar for a little while whether stopped them from going much. Further few days finally got onto the Azores which was the final stop before the Atlantic crossing Weather stop them again. There's a lot of weather in the late fall in the North Atlantic relatively treacherous waters so They were waylaid for for a while and It it took them quite a bit of time to get from Greece to the stores But then in November they set sail for Halifax what happened well. A lot of bad things happened relatively quickly The the treacherous weather caught up with them again. Rupert had this satellite phone that he borrowed from another sailor and he was able to get weather reports on sort of four or five hour delays. So he would check the forecast and based on what it said he would. He would steer the boat in a different direction. There was a big weather system coming in a big low pressure system from the South who was moving north and he and his crew. We're GONNA try to beat it to the north and they almost got there when you when you look at some of the screengrabs. They have of the of the weather patterns but they didn't quite make it and we're caught in this little arm of what they all refer to everyone involved in this as a hurricane. It was not a named hurricane but it was hurricane-force winds and it had this little arm whipping around and got caught in it and It for twenty four hours totally ravaged the boat crew was hunkered down The waves were were roaring. The wind was ripping through the rigging of the masks on On the on the boat and they were I mean they were they were rolling safely but quite violently through huge waves the kind of waves that you would see in big bad blockbuster movies you know. Not Maybe not the biggest of the big but huge so The weather data and they and they survived that The boats survived intact. They didn't capsize anything. Like that. But When it was safe to emerge in sort of inspect the damage rupert who Never saw probably couldn't fix came out and saw problem he almost couldn't fix because Man It was. Just it was torn. The steering was broken. The rudder was at a place it took some real Seafaring ingenuity to even get the boat. Operable again he and they kept going well. The steering quadrant was broken. The the the sort of mechanism that connects the rudder to the autopilot into the anything you need to actually change direction in the boat. He had to flip it around and turn it one hundred and eighty degrees the steering quadrant and then welded into place. Not Welding really. He had a cables and whatever it was at its disposal that would keep things together and worked. And so he I think the cruise airing macgyver. I got yeah he really was a seafaring macgyver and I think the crew was stunned They they were texting as well back to John. The surgeon who was a little helpless at this point in probably starting to feel a little guilty by boat is in the middle of the North Atlantic Middle North Atlantic. And his crew. That I sent. There's with it in. Oh my God we can even do and so. He was getting texts. They're saying we're pretty sure Rupert Scott under control because he's a pretty you know stoic. Man and And he did and they kept going and then well and then I hit more weather goodness. It never really stopped. They were chugging at this point as fast as they could to Halifax where the boat was gonNA spend the winter before coming to Toronto in the spring but more weatherhead This time the forecast racist dead wrong it. It misled Rupert and And his crew and they found themselves overtaken by a storm that I don't think was hurricane force but was nevertheless the kind of thing that would damage a boat. That's already been that's already damaged it just. His ingenuity was Was unfortunately Somewhat beaten down two to nothing by the storm so they found themselves once it had calmed a little bit and they were able to assess the situation adrift at Sea. What do you do in a situation like that? Well in this case what you do. Is You look for boats in the vicinity of your of your boat? Anybody who can help. You is a savior and fortunately for the McKenna. There were two Canadian navy ships. Who happened to be coming home from a mission a training mission in And War Games in Europe and they were only about eight nautical miles away from the McKenna. When everything went Super Ri- so rupert the captain got on the radio with Peter McNeil the captain of HMCS glaze Bay talked a little bit and Ships turned towards the McKenna it was glaze. Bay and HMCS summerside two coastal defence vessels. Which are two of the smaller ships in the fleet? But by comparison to the McKenna they were quite large and probably looked a you. Know a welcome sight to about adrift without any ability to really go anywhere on. Its own power and then they rescued them and it was no problem. In the story is over everything's Peachy The ship came and they just pluck them out. No it was really difficult. The story of this rescue is the stuff of a movie. This podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? You need a plan

Helicopter In Kobe Bryant Crash Being Investigated
"The noise the other big story that's been developing all week was the investigation to the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant his daughter and seven other people the investigation has been focusing a lot on the fog and weather but it's also going to look into the helicopter itself and the pilot who received clearance to fly in poor weather conditions there is also been conversation about terrain awareness warning system that possibly could have prevented the rack but in this case that warning system was not present on the helicopter that Kobe was flying on the NTSB has been arguing for a decade and a half that system to prevent crashes should be mandatory helicopters that accommodate six or more passengers such as a Sikorsky S. seventy six helicopter that he was flying in but these efforts have been turned aside from the FAA the NTSB will be releasing a preliminary report on the accident soon but for more on what we know so far we spoke to Chris and Carla he's a news correspondent for I heart media in Los Angeles to tell us a little bit more about what we know about the investigation so far the NTSB right now he's drawing out all of the physical what they call perishable evidence so anything bad maybe call it did hear a dog in the open or that needs to be collected in order to piece together the puzzle a little bit later there could be looking at many different aspects of this crash though that people given the books of the company they'll get into the background of the pilot we'll get it there what the air traffic look like around southern California during that time and of course they'll get into the weather what were the conditions like they'll look at the engine of the aircraft to see if there was any malfunction or error there and then they'll also looking to be a mechanic that the aircraft industry that are everything was in good working order so all of that ball together is going to be the broader NTSB investigation what we heard today was a more ironed out time line of this flight that they took off John Wayne airport down in Santa Ana which is about seventy miles from Cameri out and it started its white worked its way up to Burbank and it without Burbank that the pilot requested to go from visual flight rules to special VFR special visual flight rules eat put in that request and the reason if you wanted a transit some air space there all along those with special rules which basically says that you can fly when the feeling of the feeling of below one thousand P. which is kind of a basic minimum and also with less than three miles of visibility so they ended up circling right around the the airport there Burbank about twelve minutes hold that request was approved and it was at that point that they started to work their way back down the one eighteen freeway and using the freeway they follow the one eighteen to the one on one end and work their way down toward camera as they are packed Burbank the band I fear space they then requested fly straight through the Cameri which was where they were going to land the the pilot requested what's called flight following and basically that just means there's a constant contact if you will between air traffic control and the pilot the air traffic control that that the pilot was flying too low for flight following that's not necessarily a warning as much as the it's just a statement of who we are we can help you out based on where you are can't get a new whatever it is that they need in order to maintain that following the pilot been requested two wives add to avoid a cloud layer and ask the air traffic control for clearance I was the last contact between the pilot and an air traffic control so of radar indicated that the aircraft rose to about twenty three hundred feet and then there was the old black descending turned and then that was the last radar contact what we know on the ground is that when it hit it was at just about one thousand eighty five feet above sea level and the the pre field is about five to six hundred feet they've got a pretty it didn't scatter you know if you if you think about your crap accidents and crashes often those debris fields will last for maybe a half mile or a mile or even further so they can join idea of just how hard the aircraft was able to it hit the surface there yeah and it's still it does really seem like the weather I've probably played the most important factor obvious we don't know yet if there was any type of mechanical failure or whatnot but just all those requests or and and he was granted the pilot was granted to fly in these poor weather conditions it just really seems that all of that is adding up to what was the culprit and as you said in the end when he climbed up and then drop back down so rapidly that was where everybody unfortunately perished and and you know investigators and and corners were out there trying to gather remains and even the terrain there is a little difficult they all had to to hike in and and be flown in as well yeah so the NTSB is actually asking for pictures for people who are around Calabasas and had taken pictures of the weather conditions or had taken pictures somewhere near the crash site they can get an idea of what the weather conditions were like they were also pretty quickly after making that request did they were pretty quick if they live and it's not that we're just focusing on the weather here there are all of these other factors we have to look into but this is just one important piece of the puzzle certainly there are and there is a lot of reporting out there about how difficult it is the flying conditions like this how big back while there was it specifically above Cameri all our Q. three above but how about this and how easy perhaps we could have been for the pilot to become disoriented while the either asking for that for that increase in altitude or while out what movie across what had been activated is that the aircraft hit the help that is a pretty high rate of speed around a hundred sixty miles an hour so yeah they they they told you that the pilot was at least moving with a certain degree of purpose yeah and every time there's a crash a plane crash or something like that people always ask is there a black box and that's not the case with this one right there's nothing there was no black box on this helicopter no they're not required to be black box on aircraft like that and yet in court to talk about the aircraft as well as the course you that if the twin engine aircraft built yeah that that's important when you're trying to narrow down the possibilities of what could happen because yeah we have two engine I mean one failed you least have enough power to to work your way back down to the ground in an emergency landing in in this case we didn't hear any sort of emergency call there was no mayday that we know of infer that tells you that whatever happened happened quickly and was catastrophic enough that the pilot couldn't even get anything out on the radio which in most cases is instantaneous it's always important to remember the victims and all of this obviously everybody knows Kobe Bryant and and you know the world the sports world a lot of people really feel for that but you know it also included in the victims were his thirteen year old daughter Johnnie who goes by Gigi us some of her friends that I play basketball with her their parents and coaches I mean that they were on their way to one of Kobe's sports at tournaments are one of the or their basketball tournaments where his daughter was going to play and you know these were all just people United by the sport of basketball obviously a lot has been made about his daughter and her aspirations with basketball and they've seat been seen together at Laker games but these are the victims really a very close knit group of of people who who played basketball together and he coached the team things like that yeah you know it's important to think about this in the in the context of what they were doing and where they were going so that the mamba cop was this big back all tournament and I thought that the mamba sports academy which was something started in created by Kobe Bryant not just for use force but also yeah I'll be here great stories about NBA players who trained up there with Kobe or with other players it's just a really nice facility or not only basketball but also other sports like volleyball up there and so you you're you've got these people that are geared to go go back up there again there down in Newport beach seventy air miles from from thousand oaks and if anybody knows anything about southern California Subir mild bout five hours of driving when you really consider traffic even on a Sunday so that they give you an idea of why graph they were flying up there and they're flying up there with the number of people who were from the neighborhood and yeah I guess not really hidden within the strategy but certainly a piece of the strategy tragedy if you have a couple of families that are just but I mean they're incredibly impacted the other fellow for all the belly family had three family members the the father the wife and one of their daughters on that flight so you've got I think there are two other kids who now are having to deal with basically losing more than half of their family Chris and Carla news correspondent for I heart media based in Los Angeles thank you for joining us yeah of course
Sonos Trade In Program Described As 'Environmental Vandalism'
"Has a trade up program that gives existing sonos users a thirty percent credit toward a new sonos device if those users users activate what is called recycle mode on their older sonos device now recycle mode starts a countdown clock. It's a twenty eighty one day countdown and at the end of that Sonos puts the device on a blacklist so that it is bricked meaning. You can't use it at all. It will not work it is ineffective and also means that you can't give away or sell it or at least you can't do so ethically because you just be handing over what amounts to being a a giant paperweight with a lot of the circuit boards and wires in it so really. The only options are to try and hack the speakers which which isn't really an option. Most people would feel comfortable trying to tackle and would probably have limited use anyway or you could send the speaker to an e waste recycling facility or you just throw the darn thing away. That's not a great option it adds e-waste. UAC's bad stuff and recycling while better than throwing stuff out isn't As environmentally friendly as reusing stuff. If you've ever heard reduce reuse recycle well it's in that order of preference you want to reduce the amount of waste waist you generate you want to reuse stuff as much as you can the stuff you can't reuse recycle the stuff you can't reuse or recycle then you can and throw away but even that is you know not great so Wilson's point. Was that Sosas program actually incentivizes creating creating waste. It encourages people to brick their old device in order to get this thirty percent credit toward their next purchase and it makes those old old devices useless to anyone and sure they. These people might go and recycle their old sonos speakers but as nice option as as to keep the equipment in working order so that someone else can actually make use of it rather than for it to just go to waste. Critics have said this really isn't about belt reducing waste it's about sonos limiting the viability of a secondary market. Because Sonos doesn't make money off of someone selling off an old pair era of speakers or anything like that. The company has a financial incentive to discourage aftermarket sales and create pathways for people to buy directly from Sonos or from retailers who are carrying sonos speakers so the criticism states that. This is a devious way for Sonos to play the environmentally conscious card. Hard to make it look like. They're being ECO friendly while actually they're taking aim at a market that can undercut their own revenues that being the resale L. Market we've seen this with other properties as well other types of gadgets and electronics as well as video games this idea of getting rid of that resale market in order or to create the incentive for people to go out and buy new copies as opposed to US copies or used devices in this
