Scientists rename genes because Microsoft Excel reads them as dates

"Skid, suber annoyed by Microsoft, Excel's auto formatting for dates like sometimes I'm trying to type A date in a particular way for a particular reason, but excel keeps changing back to the format it once. Well geneticists got so annoyed with it were more specifically concerned about errors that they have actually renamed twenty seven human genes because xl kept misreading the genes as dates and switching up there formatting. So every gene gets a name in an Alpha Numeric Code. Several of those happened to be the same abbreviations as months, for example, membrane. C. H. Type Finger one as the alphanumeric symbol March one. But if you type that into an excel, sell it, auto formats it two, one, Dash Mar quoting the verge. This is extremely frustrating. Even dangerous corrupting data that scientists have to sort through by hand to restore. It's also surprisingly widespread and affects even peer reviewed scientific work one study from two thousand sixteen examined genetic data shared alongside three, thousand, five, hundred, and ninety seven. Seven published papers and found that roughly one fifth had been affected by excel errors, there's no easy fix either excel doesn't offer the option to turn off this auto formatting and the only way to avoid it is to change the data type for individual columns. Even then a scientist might fix their own data, but as soon as someone else opens the same spreadsheet, Nextel without thinking errors will be introduced all over again and quote. So this week, the Hugo Gene, nomenclature committee or H. G. N C who was responsible for the standardization of gene naming announced new guidelines to change the alphanumeric symbols for any genes affected by Microsoft Excel's auto formatting. So the March one gene is now march. F, one. A gene whose symbol was sept one or Septa is now as E. P. T. I n. one. In total, they've changed about twenty seven so far, and they are keeping a database of the old symbol. So people can cross reference that. This is the first time that the names of genes have had to be altered to a software

"So you know buying a home is not just a down payment there is definitely more beyond that all great questions is so far here's another one and you kind of use this buzz word already and you dream home ask yourself are you looking for your dream home or just year you know nextel what is difference mean to most folks Andy yeah you know I I would see a dream home has every potential you know upgrade bells and whistles I was just everything is perfect what you've always visualized you know that perfect home would look like you know we're a nextel might be more of a stepping stone for years I was a dream home is this is exactly what I want I will be in this home for ever it's my final home I would say next home is more I've you do this home works perfect for me in this man that maybe for the next three to five years but then from there you know what maybe I plan to downsize maybe a planned upscale so you know I would say those are really the differences between your dream home and your next him you know I feel like most people that when they buy a home they really look at it as their dream home I wouldn't say that you know many people buy home to say Hey this is just a stepping stone I can give a little bit here it's okay that doesn't have that I think most people are searching for that dream home number two there's probably never going to be a home that's perfect for you there's not there's gonna be one thing that you want to change so just you know open your eyes a little bit and I understand that it's not going to be perfect but the guests on what's most important to you maybe make a list of you know these are my must has and these are my wants now they don't get all of my once that's okay bliss try to get most of our must tabs I know for us we were on our most recent purchase we were kind of looking at it from a standpoint of you know the first home we knew wasn't the dream home but it kind of ties back in very easily that conversation of how long do you plan to live here and so I kind of knew that we weren't playing you live there forever so resale value was very important to us and really not only the purchase but also then the upgrades that we did make in the home whereas now we kind of consider our home a little bit more in the realm of our dream home and so you know we're making upgrades and doing some choices that's like I when I really worry about resell value here with you is that is our house one and then it will have that later you know exactly so you didn't have that kind of transition you had kind of more of a next time and then now your dream hobbled mazing home or at least the home that has the potential for us to live here for twenty thirty or more years yeah obviously life level your curve balls from time to time and you never know if that's going to be the actual plan but at least the potential was there so we are making our plans and choices from that perspective another great question ask yourself are you making choices speaking of choices based on emotion or logic and trying to I guess be in touch with us how you usually make decisions and then things get thrown out of whack when you go through the home buying process that's a tough one right yeah you know as far as a motion and you know what we want the home that you're buying we want you to be officially tied into it we want you to live at right we want you to you know it we don't want to just be house were really truly wanted to be a home but make sure that when you ever you are going throughout the process and there's decisions to be made were negotiating you know just going throughout the process try to use the logic as well you know sometimes you need to step back take a moment and just you know look at it as also a business right is about business transaction in a sense and try not to be too too emotionally involved and I say the same thing on the flip side to sellers I know to sellers I mean this is your pride and joy there's a lot of sweat equity put into this time there's a lot of memories but we need to try to take that emotion out of that and we need to handle this like we're running a business when it comes to selling your home yeah that's a great point I think it goes both ways to because you don't want to all just be very like robotic and and you don't go too far the other direction either you know it's okay I'll have my lotions and they should be for that well yeah we did it we we want you to absolutely love your home you know and just you know is super super excited but also don't drive yourself crazy between two just a motion by because it you know I'm forty somethings there can be hick ups things can change you know remember working with someone else on the opposite side whose kind of at the complete opposite side of the spectrum I would say and so it can be a little bit a roller coaster when you go on throughout the process of buying or selling a home so just try to simmer back a little bit some yes yes absolutely very good advice last but not least Angie and this is a good one but the wording is what's important here maybe the emphasis in the part of the sentence is what's important ask yourself who is the best real estate agent for me for you for you to work with who's gonna be the best real stated so we don't just end that sentence and yet who's the best agent who's best agent for you I mean I want to say call really take after that one now make sure that whenever you are deciding on an agent you to someone who to me it's really important air personalities match remember that you will be so called merry to that person for quite awhile I would say at minimum thirty days if not sixty ninety I've we've had clients we work with for three years before they end up buying a home so make sure that it's someone you enjoy a conversation with you know you can be around and they're just they're a good time then from there make sure that you are choosing an agent who is knowledgeable who understands the market understands the process you can always stay like we like we like to say about our team is one step ahead throughout the process to make sure you're getting that guidance in that direction that you need and then someone you can just really just sum it up and close that deal right you want someone who they can negotiate on your behalf they will either you know I know what kind of talk about more buying right now but they can negotiate the best deal for you and someone who's really being your advocate and looking out for your best interests so you know you need to find a good fit because having the wrong agent can really can it can detail a deal you could lose a hand you want because you have the wrong age and not looking out for you in your best interest and so if you are thinking about buying a home of course our team here a call really we would love to be your guide to like I mentioned we've we're on pace right now to help out three hundred ten clients this year and so we have so much experience here in the real estate market in the triangle and the fee at the mark at the end yeah we just love working with our clients and our reviews yeah me so it as well on cell as he can go and check us out there but if you are thinking about buying a hen and you want to understand the process from start to finish we have a downloadable guide that we can send to you the easiest way to go about it is pull out your smartphone and just tax the word contract to the phone number five five five eight eight eight and from there we will send you a link so you can then download that home buying guide so once again if you're thinking about buying a home or selling a home we would love to share the steps in the process is would you suggest text the word contract to the PO number.

Apple Reportedly Halted iPhone Walkie-Talkie Project

"Reportedly has halted their walkie talkie project and find this fascinating because what it would do it would it was called project off gray radio service so it would work off the nine hundred megahertz frequency <hes> wireless technology asia. That's being used by utility by the utilities currently and features would rely on the unim- tells modem an apple would work closely with intel to to build a new feature that would essentially you'd be able to use this frequency which is interesting for a walkie talkie okay peer to peer feature but also that would allow you to text each other without using a cellular connection. I imagine this project was more for emerging markets than anything else yeah in the sense that right so yeah that makes sense. I it it to me what it sounds a little bit like as i message you know and it's like this. This thing that normally requires particular technology works elsewhere kind kind of thing in other. It sounds like a typical apple thing you know we're gonna we're gonna go above and beyond what's typical for this type of functionality and it's only gonna work. If everyone has fun it's not so. Is it a walkie talkie feature like nextel or is it a peer to peer texting. It's peer to peer. You're welcome. It doesn't matter but i mean we don't know now right. We don't know if it's gone because they just acquired himself. Business voice the right way to look yeah. I found it interesting that they were working on this when i saw that they were a while ago i'm like okay i industry industry devices right go ahead.

T-Mobile & Sprint Cleared For Launch

T-Mobile & Sprint Cleared For Launch

"It's Monday may twentieth. While in the market, foolery, I'm Chris L. Joining me in studio today back first time in a while. It's Dan client, thanks for being here. Hey, there, Chris, thanks for having me. Thanks to everyone who hung in over the weekend for our apropos of nothing episode. I told you we'd be back Monday with the actual business news of the day, and we're here, we've got some media and entertainment news. We're going to dip into the full mailbag. Let's start with, I think that's technically counts as breaking news, the chairman of the FCC saying that he is going to recommend to the agency, the approval of the merger between T mobile and sprint. This is a twenty six and a half billion dollar merger. And I know the FCC still needs to formally approve this. And so does the Justice department but stocks are acting Wall Street is acting like both those approvals have gone through because when you looked at this a few weeks ago, and I think we covered this on an industry focus not that long ago. They were putting it at fifty fifty and it wasn't. They weren't looking at this sort of economics of it. They were basically, very focused on, but there's four and it's going to go to three and that's bad. And then sprint came out and said, hey, look, we've been saying our numbers are pretty good. They came as close to saying, they that they fudged the numbers, as you can legally come, and what they were basically saying is, hey, we, we've added a million subscribers, but we added is free lines. So they would say, hey your sprint customer. You think your dog wants a line could you could your ipad use a second line like it was that level of like if you went into a sprint store, they were handed them out like gum. So this was not a Wells Fargo situation. They weren't they were telling you, and in general, it was a line, you might want, like, maybe for a kid or for a secondary device, but it wasn't a line, you were going to purchase. So when T mobile says they've added a million postpaid customers. They're defining that as someone who. Signs up and joins and pays the money sprint was doing it in a sort of more nefarious way. And they came out and said, hey, look, we're spending a lot of money even their regular customer acquisition was heavily discounted. So there was no real path to success for sprint on its own. They probably could not afford the investment. I mean obviously there are owned by SoftBank. So technically the parent company could put in all the money they wanted to. But there was every chance that if this deal wasn't allowed that sprint was going to be sold at a fire sale and either team of who's going to buy a lot of the assets anyway. Or somebody like Comcast charter who had already passed on operating sprint as sprint would end up with just the customer base and the assets. So all sprint and T mobile really did. And this kind of shows that that object pie. The FCC chairman was probably leaning towards this merger anyway is all they did was committed to hitting ninety percent of the country. With five G within three years, which is something that they've talked about do. Doing anyway. That's kind of the logic of the merger is to be the first to have a real five G network all over the country and T mobile is banking on that because they have a television product, they want you to buy. So when you see shares of T mobile up around six seven percent today and shares of sprint up north of twenty five percent that doesn't strike you as unreasonable because you, you think yes, the approvals have to happen. But. It's all over. But, you know, the I mean obviously pay attention to make sure straight sprint shares. Don't go over the price that the deal is at which which does happen, sometimes, but I am very in favor of T mobile. I'm bullish on T mobile. Even if the deal get shot down, but what this does, and there is a bad history of mergers, in this space sprint Nextel is why sprint in this trial. God I forgot about boop. But I'm referencing for people who don't know, us to be able to on a Nextel phone have, like a walkie talkie feature. And it made like a ridiculously annoying noise. It worked very well in a factory, but others say, very, very popular in factories and construction sites. Yes, which is where I use them. So it was a good product for me. But in this case, you have a dynamic CEO and John Legere, and they have a plan. So whether the sprint brand goes away, they haven't told you that. But eventually, this is a company that has tremendous customer loyalty because they're straight with you. If you walk. Into a T mobile and layout, your problem. I had an issue, I wanted to upgrade my iphone and they no longer I was part of their old upgrade program, and they explained it to me, clearly, why had to pay more money than I thought I did. And they were very nice about it and I didn't leave angry. And that's very hard. There is no possibility. AT and. T. O Verizon can do that. Let's move onto the entertainment industry, and I suppose this ties in CBS has made an offer to buy stars from Lionsgate entertainment. I was saying, right. Before we started taping I had to take a moment. And think about what does stars bring to the table as a network other than movies that other people have made in the only thing I could come up with was American God's power the original series, so. What do you think of this deal because when I first saw this what went through my head was, oh, the landgrab continues, the we're all moving to streaming? And by we I'm referring to the broadcast networks. We're all moving to streaming. We're all looking to get as much content original content, as we can get our hands on. And if we have to pay maybe a little bit more for not as well known content we're going to do that. This is kind of like asking someone to the prom, and our before the prom. All the good dates are gone. This almost goes back to Disney buys Pixar, then Disney by Star Wars. Then Disney bars marvel then Comcast goes. Uh-huh. And buys DreamWorks, we, we were comparing this talking to saying that stars is sort of the Royal crown cola, the RC cola. And then we downgraded it to it's the polar soda of, of premium content channels. But this really is in my opinion. Desperation move 'cause so you're gonna pair this if you're CBS with it's very weak to show or maybe three show now that they've launched a twilight zone, CBS streaming service. Maybe they're going to pair that with some of the Viacom properties if they ever properly merged, which they're sort of controlled by the same people, and they talk about merging, but it hasn't quite happened. So like you're streaming package is going to be a couple of old people shows on CBS interactive stars, which has young streaming shows, but I don't know anybody who's intentionally buying stars to watch American gods. And then, like, what like reruns of the real world and, and maybe comedy central as an asset that will drive some subscriptions, but it feels like if I'm gonna pay for sort of a package. Disney is clearly building towards a Hulu Disney plus ESPN plus package. That's going to be more attractive. And then Comcast is going to be more attractive, and then probably Sony now that they're working with Microsoft is going to be able to put something together. And then maybe Happel, and then this CB it, it really seems to me like, buying a very low level asset for a lot of money. So I'm going to put in your rank ordering I'm gonna put this above apple just because we don't know what's coming with apple yet. They had the event earlier this year with Oprah Winfrey. Steven Spielberg, and they and I get all that at least with CBS you have some known quantities. I think the, the best version of this scenario for CBS is, if this goes through then three years from now they have enough data. I would argue actually even sooner maybe a year and a half, two years from now they have enough data from their streaming app to know what to invest in because the one thing you can say about the stars original content at least in terms of the dramas is, you're not seeing those types of dramas on TV. It really is a different category of trauma. It's, it's, it's edgier. I would argue in some ways, it's more create. Give it's the nineteen eighty-five HBO model where there's going to be gratuitous nudity for absolutely no reason in every episode. I mean it's possible, but just, just from a creative stamp, boy, it's, it's less predictable show like American gods. As far less predictable than a formulaic. I know they don't own law and order. But that's the one that pops D'amoto like a procedural where I know it's going to play out or NCIS I guess that's a CVS property. I feel like this only makes sense if they're going to continue acquiring but there's not much left out there. You start to get into buying one offs and buying shows rather them if this is part of a roll up strategy, and they need the subscriber base, and they come to you, and they say, hey, do you have stars? We're giving you CBS we're giving you because the Disney pricing looks pretty attractive. I may who live subscriber if they throw me Disney, plus, which I'm going to get any way it's going to have Star Wars shows and ESPN plus and it's only. An extra seven ninety nine or ninety nine I'm probably going to do that. CBS is streaming service is very inexpensive. It's four ninety nine a month. If all of a sudden, for nine ninety nine a month. I can get stars to maybe I mean, I, I had stars when I used to

Ever had that we call the bleep video believe me. There. It is. Yeah, they're just came. I had a friend with that. And it was like a hated it. So he didn't have one how old were you? When you had this is like freshman age. Yeah. Yeah. He had my. Almost like date with the blackberry where you're stuck with a way pastime. Yeah.

"Your thinking about life and business. Welcome back. This is Tom Lauria today. We are talking to former sprints down Hessy who has CEO sprint was named one of the ten. Inspirational turnaround leaders of all time, Dan, when we left you're talking about your arrival at sprint, and the fact that you had two groups of people the Nextel group and the sprint group. How did you weave them together? Well, I my very first call employee meeting. I'm standing in front of a large audience in an auditorium and the rest of the country, all the employees are watching on on video monitors. And I talked about this issue about and they were kind of laughing and smiling. How everybody in the first three sentences was telling me whether they came from sprint Nextel. And I told him as a. We're gonna come up with one culture. That Nextel had a wonderful culture. And I described all next Nextel. I'm how did she is? Just fantastic entrepreneurial company and sprint PCS, the other company. What a great culture it has. It is was the fastest company in history from zero one billion dollars in revenue, but we were going to be one culture in what I was going to do is take what I consider to be some of those attributes of the next culture some of the best attributes of the spring culture some other attributes I had seen from the best companies. I had either been a part of or had witnessed that I was going to send a survey out to every employer when identify vote on which qualities they wanted to be on the makeup. If you wanted to be our culture to make up the culture of the company they wanted to work for and they sell this. Kennedy successful so engaged everyone in basically coming out with a white sheet of paper are taking the best qualities that from the companies that that they had come from. Plus others, and we're going to create one culture of this new company sprint bridge. Everybody for dissipated. I also told him I'm not gonna just pick the ten attributes that get the high spokes most number of votes culture. That's my decision is the CEO one accountable. I want your input. And it's the way we're going to run the company there's gonna be a decision maker because we're gonna move. Yeah. It's not always going to be a democracy, but I very much want. Everybody's input came out with one culture. Everybody got these cards with the ten elements with a. Some things cultural heritage we we called them. And actually, my going away party the room was filled with a big poster of every one of these ten because people remember bad as you know, one element. If you will if my legacy, creating this culture of the new company, and it was how we got things done, and it was really the glue as well as if you will the lubricant to the company of how we moved quickly. And did you have to go through any kind of a reduction in force as you're going through the chair around? I did. And I was very straightforward. And they knew they knew it as well. So when I when I got there, I looked at the books in the business plan, and depending upon which set of options one us to the company was going to go bankrupt in four to six months. And so I was straightforward and schedule communication communication with your people and employees has to be honest and straightforward. Bad news. They can take it. Good news. Just give it to them straight. And I let him know we were we were going to have to cut expenses substantially and it meant people. But we did it in the best way. We could we did it openly. And that was you know, it was unfortunate. But it's something that that that we had to do. But we made it we made it through. That was interesting is is even with all the force reductions employee morale went out and went up steadily and come years later, we were being used as a model our company because of the morale stores that that we had achieved. This is Tom Lauria. You're listening to the mattress radio today. We have Dan has the pharmacy. Sprint is our guest math or so you can. And you've I I understand all of the complexities. How did you go about building your team? Did you bring some people from the outside that you just stay with people that are on the inside and move them up. How did you go about creating here team? Roughly the new team was made up of one third people from the senior team that was there when I got there one-third people I brought in from me outside and roughly one third which were that layer below that. I created an opportunity for promotion. Because that was also one of the issues at the company at the time was you had a number of really talented. Come. Folks that were ready to move up into the senior ranks that had been kind of held up from moving up because of the merger in the number of people that were already there two companies combined. That they were being blocked. So if you will it was roughly a third of the existing management one-third people from the outside that I knew were just terrific for my own many years in the industry over thirty years at the time. And then about a third were promoted out. When you look back on this. Is there anything you would do differently? Given what I knew at the time. No. You always, you know, you you learn things later that you know, you might he might be different Italy in twenty twenty hindsight. But that's just not the way I think I don't I don't second. Guess what? I did. You know, I think. Largely we make the right decisions in that the priorities of the company, what was on the agenda. What we have we paid people are objectives. Actually, not only the culture, the culture, but three standards of our strategy. Never changed seven years later. They were exactly the same. I think a company needs. If he will stability, probably the the war string, a leader can be as material they have to be steady. And and we've been we stayed the course, and that's why I think we made so much progress. So we focused number one on the customer, and we moved from last to first you mentioned JD power moves from last to first in JD power. When moved from last to first in the American customer satisfaction index in our industry.

UK firms 'not prepared' for data breaches

"In the world. Senator Warner. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me earlier this year, you released a paper outlining various possibilities for how congress might be able to step in and do more to ensure that these tech companies aren't making our elections awful and acting irresponsibly with our personal data. In your opinion, what's the most urgent issue in regards US tech companies and social media platforms that can be addressed by congress? I think we need to move past kind of where we've been the last ten years where people in business and politics have been totally enamored around the social media companies in the tech companies and there's or knows me Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, they've all been wonderfully successful stories. But I think starting in two thousand sixteen we. I've seen the kind of dark underbelly of of social media, how in the case of our elections, Russians were able come in Wien in massive ways with fake information with disinformation. And that was on the political context. What we've also seen has been manipulation around stock prices around advertising, click throws, and my effort was to say, particularly with a lot of my peers. My background was in technology. I was in the wireless industry co, founder of Nextel. So I come with a little bit of knowledge. Many, my colleagues have very little knowledge. So what I've tried to do in this paper is to say here, twenty ideas, not all of them good, but I tried to break them into three buckets on how we might think about guardrails. One bucket is around user authentication and data authentication. Should we have some right to know if someone represents themselves on the internet if they are that role person, or should we have a right to know whether we're being. Communicated to buy a human versus a botched should be able to know where post might originate from none of these are solve all issues, but there is that whole question around authentication. Second bucket is around privacy and something I know April. You've been working on for some time and everything from first party consent to the whole. I would argue slightly clunky GDP our approach of our, the privacy protections, and the third bucket are the questions around. Are there pro-competition

We've been there ever since they've grown all kinds of vegetables every vegetable down there, except tomatoes in struggled. I mean, there's pictures of me when I was a kid and my dad was growing squash and you had big tubs, you'd wash squash. And then that was like my swimming pool.
