Microsoft Said to Be in Talks to Buy TikTok, as Trump Weighs Curtailing App

"President Trump has given Microsoft until September fifteenth to negotiate a deal to buy a piece of Tiktok that's a step back from trump's threat on Friday that he would ban the popular Chinese video APP, which he calls a national security risk. Let's bring in Greg Remai- Otas he's an editor at Reuters and was one of the reporters who broke the story and Greg Microsoft said in a statement that it's committed to acquiring tick tock but there are a few things that they I need to work out what are some of the main concerns over the next few weeks? So, they need to convince US national security officials that TIKTOK will not offer any backdoor to China's government were to be separated from its current owner by dance and be owned by Microsoft. All of TIKTOK data on American users is already stored in the United States, but because talks platform. It's algorithms is code are shared by other by dance APPs US officials need to be convinced that if the word to be a sale to. Microsoft. By then sworn, be left holding the keys and still have access to the APP let's break down just a little bit. So talks parent company, which is a Chinese company has taken steps in the past to try to appease US regulators on this front. But president trump still says it's a national security risk just remind US briefly how we got here. So we wrote a sexually broke news last year the Committee on foreign investment in the United States had opened an investigation into Tiktok. This is a US government panel, the scrutinises deals for potential national security risks. But of course what has happened since then is that relations between the United States and China have deteriorated. The president told reporters less last week that she was sexually looking at banning tiktok. But we reported yesterday that he will now allow this process to run, and if process will basically give forty five days for Microsoft and bind them to see the negotiate a deal that can you know a piece US national security officials So, this Microsoft deal would involve them buying tick. Tock Service here Canada Australia and new. Zealand so does that mean that this parent company would still operate the service in the rest of the world? How exactly what that work? That's the key question show. We understand that as far as those countries are concerned, Microsoft would be taking over but like the the. will be in the detail because this is being don show by will have no access no backdoor TIKTOK and to be fair that's probably why you show the president and some of his in the White House not being able to make up their minds because it's been like a very big question mark can you know that the -nology of Tiktok really be taken away from by them in a way that satisfies US concerns. Microsoft owns linked in, but otherwise, it isn't really well known as a social media space. How big of a deal would this acquisition of Tiktok for Microsoft I mean would then put it in the same space to compete more directly with the facebooks in the snapchat. So the world absolutely would be transformative and you may have noticed at the congressional hearings last week when. Four big technology company CEOS attracted the ire of lawmakers Republican, and Democrat Microsoft wasn't there. Beyond Lincoln Microsoft mainly focuses on. Business Software and and this you know and map that both hammer million. Users in the United States, would you know give Microsoft one of you the social media industries, gems, and? Turn them into. A very big player she'll be. To see how the president navigates the politics of this deal with his own base menu supporters are suspicious of big technology companies. They perceive any inherent bias against conservatives, social media, and at the same time you probably over the weaker many of his you know Republican supporters, Lindsey Graham, particular tweeting, making statements, encouraging the president to clinch the deal with Microsoft show. You be very interested to see how trump navigator this. Yeah, I mean some of the speculation is that trump backed off of earlier threats because it would alienate the party's younger users ahead of the election do you think that this deal will actually happen? The big unknown here is this technology issues we discussed this you sure absolute seperation back of suddenly has the cash to pay for this. The question is, can a deal be put together? That appeases the hawks in DC. That's Greg Room Yoda's editor of corporate finance in Deals at Reuters Greg. Thank you. Thank you.

"ota" Discussed on Blogging the Boys

"I think that you said that you had someone on your show in. He thought the Dak Prescott would show up. Ota's Ta's that they actually had OTA's at the star. I don't think he would because I think you bought you bought his. I don't want to call it a threat but you bought what he was saying that he wouldn't have shown no. I I really don't think he would. I mean again. This is obviously. There has not been much movement between two parties. Because you get to the point where okay. Well let me let me make the first move. LemMe not show up and not be party. Ot Age because that's what everyone is going to be talking about so then all of a sudden it puts the pressure goes back in the cowboys court. The balls record okay. Well Dax not shown up and everyone's put Dax not going to be there You Know He. We need him to move forward. This is the future of the franchise. Show now a cowboys now. It's so they I think they just to that point. I think you have to start some Nile log whether there's dialogue. We don't know what how they may be a lot closer than we think. I don't know but I think someone's got to make the first move so you know for me. I don't I think did too good posture on his part to be able to do that Because I ever quarterback does that Especially in this climate of the National Football League as far as the locker room guys understand that. I think that it's not. There's no resentment. There's no animosity I mean it's a business you hear this all the time. Rj whenever guy comes up for new deal the National Football League Guinness. You know your band of brothers. Everyone's gotta get Thurs while they can. You know you look at if anyone's GonNa feel sorry for anyone and look. I don't think anyone the you know the normal person that's going to work and you know you know now you're not going to work but The normal person is going to eight to five job. They probably don't really feel sorry for some online that Prescott but in the big picture in the big picture is sports and look at that Prescott. He made eight hundred fifty thousand dollars as a starting quarterback. Yeah I think they all like think look man. I mean we filled. We're you know we're on your side. We need to be making at least twenty five thirty thirty five million dollars just like some of these other dudes out there that really average quarterback so I think that that's the the sentiment of most people in certainly as a as a player in the locker room. We all support him. And you do what you need to do. You Take Care of yourself your point right now. You earned it. During the best leverage position you can take advantage of it and get as much as you can. Hey guys going to get back to me and Tony in just a second before. We do a quick break to hear award from our sponsors. All right everybody. Let's finish strong. Here is the 750 right and I think I mean like I said. There's there's somebody for every opinion you know what I mean like. Somebody's somebody's always going to have something to say to you. Know go back and forth on this or whatever But so I mean I know we've talked about it before but the closest comparison I think especially when it comes to the role that he had on the team You know just something that happened in all day was when Emmitt held out and so nobody was pissed at him. It right I mean. I know y'all when you fell to Owen. Everybody was pissed up but nobody was mad that nobody thought and it was selfish. I it felt I mean. Tell me if I'm wrong but if felt like it was the whole team like okay. Get it done cowboys. You know because we don't want this to happen. I mean it felt like everybody was on this one. I think what he he came out a couple of months ago and I will discount but you know to your point. You're exactly riding. We you know we need a damn it. We needed a you know we needed a you know the the the balancing the offense. I mean we we struggled you know. We didn't have the the running back we didn't have. We just came off a super bowl year and we needed that that ingredient. And you know that time earned it. I mean he earned. He was the best running back in the national football league arguably the MVP on our team so we needed to get that deal done. So I've been no-one no-one no-one has animosity for player. That's upwards new ild that deserves it and look I. That's the reality of it. He deserves it. Dak Prescott this or is it and you know. He just doing what he needs to do to move this process along and the cowboys. No look on the Nice Guy. But I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA TAKE MINIMUM WAGE. Right you You mentioned that. Allow ago that he wants a long term deal that seems to be where the big disconnect is not disconnect but the big disagreement if you want to call her land and it seems like team. Dak wants a four year extension or as the cowboys at one of five year deal and I just I mean th this is the example but whatever it is. I don't see how the cowboys get what they want. Whatever it is they want I mean. Dak has all the leverage and granted were in this particular situation in some times that are different what the zoom. Ota's and everything but at some point I mean we we know this we know the cowboys ultimately you know they get in the staring contest. You know what I mean. And they liked a puff their chest out and you know maybe even they liked You know kind of Bang a drum like last year. Jerry'S Z. Coup you know what I mean like. They like to push back a little bit. But if you if you're an important enough player like demarcus lawrence is like Zeke Elliott is like Dak Prescott. Certainly as they will blink first we. We've learned that you know what I mean. Yeah and I understand. Probably a little bit of the gist. The be intimidated and not not really willing to extend the contract for quarterback paying that much money and maybe some reluctancy there because Just a big commitment on their part In in this a lot easier to science and Malek Amari Cooper and I think it's a five year and think it's guaranteed money. They're not willing to budge on or not willing to budge the number the DAX camp want and that's okay but I think it's ultimately going to get done. It's just a matter of what you know. How close are you? I mean when when you're when you're you're donates negotiations I mean you know what you know. What's what's the number and I again. Thank you have to go through this whole process? I mean that's the process. Saddam business You know you just people like well. Why'd you wait salon? Well you you go through the process. There's a lot of other parameters APP. There you know the goes it goes into this and you know what is a management is an ownership. May I don't know any owner or out there really is just in maybe different teams of different? This wants to say okay. We're GONNA you know we're we're going to not bow down but we're going to be the one that's really proactive. And getting this done and if that makes sense because ultimately we want to be the person that's empowered you know and you know whether that's fair or not now when I look at Carson Wentz and I look at the eagles you know they had. They didn't hesitate one bet to sign him and then you got jeered golf dinner like hell did wasn't there wasn't the this hesitation to get those deals done then. We got that Preska when you get it done now. The sudden you know the the cowboys are playing hardball. Yeah I mean you know. It's it's difficult to understand how they they haven't learned how to you know predict the way the market works. I mean like these. Are you know such great business men and women in a lot of capacities? You know what I mean and That they can't understand the way you know football contracts work but I mean it is what it is but so So you're saying then you know if there's no deal and I don't know why I would deal would get maybe a deal gets done. I mean That would be that would make for quite a week but Let's assume there's no deal done between now and next Monday? And we'll have another five before then but You don't think Dak logs on to zoom next Monday. I don't think so. I don't think it really is necessary. Part now again. He is smart enough dude. He understands that you know he. He doesn't have relation. East probably talked to Mike McCarthy. So they may there's probably been some obviously conversations going back and forth. I don't know but I think that that's the best way approaches to make them. You know to be concerned a little bit and then all of a sudden there's this public you know for his public pressure which I don't think organizations you know they don't they don't feel the pressure of the fan the fan the cowboy nation. I think that they just you know it's a process of Dak wanting to say. Look Okay I don't WanNa be the bad. Do you know I if I am I. Am I think I think he's in a good position right now? Because I don't think anyone's going to paint a pitcher Dak Prescott Center athlete. That's being unreasonable. I think everyone understands that. This is I deal in an Isa get paid for what he's done. It will be interesting. It had been awhile in enemy. Had Been Awhile since we had the talk. You know what I mean like things that knows but rj think about this who knows what the future holds for this for the League. I mean I don't I mean we hear things every day we talk before you came on. Startup podcast. You never know what's out there as far as you know once football gonNA start. What the time line I mean. If you're the cowboys I WANNA get dumb but the back of my mind. I'm thinking we don't know what the Hell's going to happen. We're going to be playing in August. I mean wince training Camp GonNa Start. I mean there's so many barriers right now you gotta get through really openness this thing up and see if there's actually going to be the start of the NFL season in July. I mean there's there's no denying that these are obviously stressful and just unbelievable times in in ways that are way more important than sports and we say that all the time I mean. We're just you know we're we're doing what we came to talk about the cowboys and talk about football in the middle of all this but Yeah.

And the things that I need to get done. Sometimes it doesn't get done right so I wanNA make sure that my energy is up high and that I'm able to function from up here and so I wanNA share with you guys some of my favorite daughter products and oils that. I use to make sure that I'm on top of my game all right so first things first I wanna talk essential oils because we all know that dough. Tara has the most incredible essential oils and these. I've actually chosen three. That are my favorites now again. There's a ton of different oils. That will help and that we will love. These are three of my favorites. So number one being peppermint now peppermint. I'm sure that a of you guys can agree with me is a staple in my home. I love this oil. It comes everywhere with me. You'll find it in my purse. My Gym bag. You'll find it beside my bed in my bathroom. It literally is any everywhere that I go because it's one that I grab quite often throughout the day. This is a great oil for pre and post workout and how I use it for energy. Is that what I do is put one to two drops in the palm of my hand. I will rub my hands together and I'll just do a nice little tent. Be over the nose and it takes three big inhalations in what this is going to do. Is it's going to help to open up and support the airways another thing that I like to do is I like to take the remainder of the oil. That's on my hands. I like to rub it on the back of my neck and onto my shoulders because what that's doing is actually going to give this nice beautiful sensation and so I find that to be very invigorating. It's very energizing. And just you know when you're hitting that wall in the middle of the day and you're just needing something to help pick you up. Grab your peppermint oil. You'll be surprised how well this works. And how great this feels and just is a really feel good oil and again just a couple nice. Big inhalations is a great way to use your peppermint oil also. Great in the diffuser as well. Now I said my second I have three oils but actually my second one. I'm kind of classified as my citrus oils because citrus oils are very uplifting. Now do I have a one specific citrus oil that I love? It's hard to say because there's so many good ones I love wild orange I love lemon grapefruit citrus bliss so anything citrusy is very uplifting. It's very energizing. It's feel good so if you come to my house you will find diffusers. In every single room and in those diffusers you will typically find a citrus oil diffusing now what I love about citrus oils. Is that it blends well with pretty much anything and everything. So you can add some some floral to it if you want so your you know your drain. Yam or your Lang Lang or you could do something more. Mid To experiment or peppermint or something herbal. So I love things like Rosemary which is also really nice. And the diffuser as well so again using your your citrus oils to help. Energize you Is a great way to to help give you that little bit of boost of energy throughout your day again you can do a drop into your hands and again the ten teepee couple big inhalations and you can also apply to. Paul's point so the risks behind the ears Those are also great ways to use citrus oils. Also I know that. A lot of people love aromatherapy jewelry. So you can buy necklaces. And bracelets with the aromatherapy jewelry that have eleven beads or have felt beads so that you can apply oils and just kind of smell throughout the day My third favourite oil is actually blend so. Tara has some incredible blends and one of my favorite blends to help. Give me energy through. My Day is motivate if you have not tried this oil yet. I highly suggest that you do it. Such an uplifting feel-good oil. It again has pepper minute. Has Clementines has got peppermint got some citrus oils in there it also has coriander Basil Melissa Rosemary and a little bit of Vanilla. So it's very minty fresh clean smell and I use it the same way that I use my government and I use it the same way he's my citrus oils. Whether I Do a nice little tent and have a Nice Cup a nice couple big inhalations in or I put it in my diffuser. I apply it to my pulse points or put it on my jewelry. These are the ways that I loved oils air medically because when we breathe in natural aromatic compound is going through the olfactory the nose and it's hitting our limbic system in the brain which controls a lot of different things in the body and it's a great way to use oils to help support our moves in to help to support our feeling another incredible product that you can try to help to increase energy throughout your day is meadow to Max now. I'm not sure if you guys have tried this product yet but it's probably one of my favorites especially when it comes to a balanced stable energy. Alright so this is not energy stamina complex it. Has Things like Ginseng. Which is a natural energy boost? So it doesn't have things that are like harmful stimulants or caffeine. So you're not going to experience a crash. What this does is it actually delivers. Atp Andrea Cells. So it's actually enhancing might Oke Andrea function and again you're going to be delivered a solid stable balanced energy throat. You're so if you haven't yet tried this. It's an awesome product to try out like I said one of my favorites I typically like to use it in the morning Prior to my workout and again I like to get things done in the morning between six. Am and noon. And that's typically what. I like to use this product just to give that balanced table energy throat my day now again as we're talking about energy. I think it's important to know that there are many things in our life that contribute to what causes us to experience energy right. So it's not just grab your peppermint or grab your your oils. Which are great. They will help their great tools that we can put an tool belt for for emergencies and for things like that but we also want to look at our lifestyle right. Are we sleeping properly. Are we getting the right amount? Might amount of hours of sleep. Are we eating? The right. Diet are as neutral as our nutrition up to par right. Are we getting enough movement in into our daily into our day as well right? Are we moving our bodies are we? Are we exercising? And so I want you to really look at these areas can take a look like. Are there things that you can improve when it comes to sleep? I mean I I love having a good sleep routine in place right and I love a good bedtime routine for my children and for myself for me. I'm all it's all about self care so again I love being able to go in and get the diffusers going using some of my favorite nighttime oils things like lavender. Vetiver Cedar Wood Frankencense piece. So those are some of the oils that you'll find in the bedroom things that I like to use. I will always have a lavender touch roller bottle beside my bed to roll in the bottoms of my feet. I also like to have a piece of paper and a pen so that I can bring dumping but everything in my head onto paper so that it just helps me to have a better night's sleep right so look at your routines and create some great routines for yourself and for your family to help to improve your sleep because if you're sleeping better you're going to have more energy the next day or eight so take a look at that. We also want to look at our nutrition and our diet right. We WanNa make sure that we're eating the right foods right. We WanNa make sure eating fruits and vegetables. We WanNa make sure eating. Lean searches a protein complex. Carbohydrates healthy fats. We WanNa make sure that. We're watching the amount of sugar that we're eating processed foods. We want to eliminate or limit those things right so for me. I know that healthy diet but our foods aren't as nutrient dense. They were fifty years ago. So it's important for me to make sure that I'm using the right supplements in in in along with my Diet. Because that's what's going to help to give me energy now. I loved Otas. Lifelong vitality pack. It is definitely one of my favorite products that actually helps to give me energy throughout my day as well In here we have three different products that we use. We have our L. S. E. R. S. Which is our cellular complex. Which actually going to help provide great healthy cells in the body because as we age our cell to diminish you. It's important for us to have the the making sure that we're keeping those cells replenished we also have our Seo Omega which is our Omega supplement which is great for cardiovascular Brain and joint health and we also have our micro plex vm. It's it's got your twenty two essential vitamins and nutrients in there so again. You're not getting it if you're not getting it from your daily Diet it's important to make sure you get it and so for me. I've really noticed a huge difference in my overall energy throughout my day. By using this multivitamin and making sure that an eating a well balanced nutritional diet and then the third thing is obviously exercise and movement and a lot of people have business conception that in order to exercise it means you have to go and kill yourself from Jim. Right and like all these all these things that we have to go and work out for X. amount of hours really at the end of the day as long as you get your heart rate up. Maybe break a little bit of a sweat. That's important so maybe get outside. Go for a walk. Go for a run. You know put on a a Yoga Youtube video and do some yoga. It's really easy. It's what you enjoy and I think that's the thing you have to remember when it comes to movement do what you enjoy because that ultimately that's GonNa make you happy and that's what's going to help you to continue doing those things and creating those habits in your

OTA marketplace fragmented but travel experiences are converging – Skift

"So do you think there's a shake up coming on the OTA travel sector and you know maybe other any companies out there that you're following more closely than others that you're perhaps bullish on so the customer corporate travel managers has expressed an interest at some point in time of bringing O. G. A. rates into the mix you know do I allow Expedia booking dot com hotels dot com rates and make those available to our corporate travelers what we're finding is in some cases that makes sense probably in Europe in certain situations where you just can't get to the hotel any other way other than buying potentially direct but for the most part we're just not seeing a significant discount from those rates okay and and the other disadvantaged listings when their discounted those rates and to be non refundable and and and potentially prepaid which really aren't applicable for the corporate travel market the issue that we're going it does he said that's true in plus you have all these fees that are embedded in there that are tough to find as well read the latest issue that we're finding it more often than not you don't see all the season when you show up at the hotel to check out there's a resort the property fee they they kind of wrap it in a different names but there's a fee that's charged on checkout counter hidden and it seems to be more prevalent with these TA types of rates that you see with the other rates that are out there it's such a game Steve real quick I have a question for listeners you I suggest monitoring hotel rates about a month out why is that what to look for the leisure market most of the revenue managers of hotels really start getting a sense of occupancy about thirty days out and in our daily rate shopping we kinda look at how often rates you get kind of get adjusted up or down and all the fun starts for the leisure market about thirty days forty five to thirty days out from check yet in the corporate market it's more about two weeks out from check in it's so you know what happens with our solution is will check every day but as we get closer to those with those we actually speed up and we start checking multiple times per day to take advantage of those rate drops that they Kerr heard you mention twice Europe cell I don't trip Pam is headquartered in Dallas where our engineer Bob is based because although Merion I renew your can have ready in Saint Paul our show is produced in Dallas and distribute over the satellite from there but I want to hear about your international expansion because I'm told you now have a regional headquarters in London and other operations in France and Germany why well because it really started with a larger US companies wanting us to process transactions on a global basis and so as we started bringing up you know their entities in those countries we needed the ability to support them and provide service so we've established an office in London we've got sales account management all those necessary parts and pieces there we're also starting to make some headway into you know the other countries in Europe as well but we're we're global at this point I mean we're processing bookings and a hundred and eighty countries around the world is big growth since we last spoke it

This Too Shall Pass and it Aint That Bad

"To the Shalini. Show Jelena's a New York Times bestselling author celebrity fitness trainer in obsessed assist with helping you. Actually we're not going for a ride. We're just sitting in my car. Thanks for being here and keeping me company. I've got a nice Warm Cup of coffee. He and I got ready a little early today. So I've got like an extra twenty minutes and I was just sitting here going over my day my push journal and I thought you know what I've got something on my mind. I WanNa talk to my my lifers about this one and it's really the idea that life is hard like well and sometimes life is good and easy and we don't always recognize nuys when it's good an easy. It's funny how that is right because you've ever given birth. If you have kids you gave birth to those kids. You know what I'm talking about like you quickly. We kind of forget the painful uncomfortable pieces and you consider having more sometimes but what I really wanted to talk to you about. Is it kind of that idea like talking about the perspective that eventually everything gets better the this is life and today actually yesterday I should say yeah it was yesterday. I was going through this big box of photos. I mean photos from when Britain. I all the way back to when we were just. I married newlyweds. Pictures from our wedding pictures from when Brock was first born and then when he was a toddler Adler and all the birthday parties and then Sierra being born in I do apologize. If you're listening I don't know what the deal is. There just are not as many photos of Sierra. I guess that's at Second Child Syndrome but in my own defense. It's also when like we started taking digital photos and so once everyone one-star doing that. We stopped printing photos. Are you with me like how many thousands and thousands of photos do you have on your phone right now. Div Not printed them like remember remember. How every single week? I don't know if you're old enough to remember this but we all used to go to costco or CVS or the drugstore like probably like once a week and you get this big giant pack of photos autos and it was so weird because you didn't know what you're going to be getting because you took the photos but you didn't have a digital camera to look and see like if the photos were going to be good or not you just picked up this huge stack of real photos. It's so strange that was like a minute ago and it was over. The course of Sierra's lifetime. We just went straight up digital so there aren't as many photos of her poor girl. Love you girl but anyways as I was going through those photos Brett was gone for a couple of days. I was like sitting on the floor and I'm going to these photos and I was really thinking about what was going on lives during those times times like looking at a phone going like. Oh Yeah Whoa I remember. I remember who was there that night. I remember getting a fight earlier that day. I remember remember the argument. I remember vying that skirt. I remember buying that dress like you know what I mean. All those memories were coming back to me but I really started for some some reason thinking about some of the more trying times over the course of the last twenty twenty five years and as I was looking to these photos otas thinking about some of those tough times. I was reminded that in those moments I remember feeling like would would never get better that it was so painful and so horrific in so uncomfortable. Whatever it was right because there's all these different stages there's just never you can't imagine it being incredibly different? I looked at photos when we were in our first Home together and thinking about how how many months we had to work to afford one window treatment. We had this one kind of bigger window in our downstairs area and I had a personal training client at the time who is a decorator and she had these like ornate beautiful window uh-huh treatments and just remember going. Oh Man let's have her designed one beautiful draperies like this beautiful ornate window treatment and and like we had a scrape up every penny to do that and and it felt like such an extravagant thing and I just remember thinking like what would it be like if we could do like all of our windows you know not just have this one night it was now we just have one window but like there's one area where we had like one big tall window anyways ways I remember feeling like will never be out of debt like will we ever have a savings. Will we ever have that time of the month roll around when and we have to pay our mortgage will we ever feel like it's not painful right and then and then I'm looking at more photos and remembering when things dig a little bit easier but but then I remember like then. I'm looking at times when the kids were little and just feeling so overwhelmed and so alone and feeling like Oh gosh this is so oh hard into my doing this right and it's so stressful and I just remember crying and crying because Brock would never stop crying crying when he was a baby and people say the rudest things like. Oh your babies Koloki because they're picking up on your energy you know that you see how it was blame and just remember so many of those struggles and then you know going through additional photos and seeing people who were in my life for a period of time who you know there are good and bad bad times and I remember like the really bad times. I remember like having relationship problems with like a person person who's like no longer in my life and to think about the grief that I was feeling in that moment and then to think like wow. I haven't thought about them in fifteen years breath that time in my life that person became all consuming then every time I I looked at another photo and thought back on what we. We're feeling at that time I would just take a deep breath and the sense of calm just kept coming over me as a reminding myself that nothing's permanent like everything gets better the worst of the worst pain and tough times and challenges. Eventually it gets better eventually. You are better for it. Nothing stayed the way it was. We made it through everything you have made it through everything. No matter how dark the the pain is it you feel right now no matter how much despair you feel and how sad you might be and how devastated stated you may feel this is GonNa pass things are GonNa get better. Your pain is not permanent

How Orbita is using Voice an AI to change the healthcare experience

"Joint today by Nick White of orbiter nick tells a little bit about who you are and what you do. Thanks they have great to be on my. My Name's Nick Wide. As you said I just joined open a recently in the roll off executive vice president patient kiss solutions and in that role look at product that we've gone cold over assists which is a vertical solution? Dove on top of the the over platform focusing on care for patients is and nurses and recently joined the team from Deloitte are being a consultant for many years focusing on How we help people go to disk judge to optimize the way they working every day and thinking about the use of conversational? I cognitive science technology. Oh Jeez and own alterations in terms of the future works of isolated individuals such as nurses or other individuals. They just don't sit behind a desk everyday totally totally so you know. I really wanted to bring Nick on today Because I think that you know as we are seeing with voice assistance in general. You know you're sort of seeing seen this new evolution where they're moving outside of the home and they're moving into new settings and healthcare is one of the settings that I find to be really intriguing. I think there's a whole lot of opportunity. Eighteen eighty in a wide variety of ways in which voice assistance can be layered into that new setting and so You know the first time I got exposed STA to orbital was an exa conferences ago I met nature or and I saw him speak in and I kinda got exposed to orbit a little bit and so before we really dive into orbit assist. which I know is really sort of like your your baby Can you tell us a little bit about the whole idea of orbiter. Yeah No Otas a fascinating organization. I what they have built at. Its Haas is a platform which allows you to do conversational. Management's using a low code on oak coded Borrowers Managing that conversation. That you WANNA have redid customized And then serving that up via any of the platforms be that Google or Alexa Chat bots web chat or even run analog sards art and that platform allows you to to have really rich management affect compensation and the direction that you want to take your shoes. When you're indecisive is new so so that is a platform was really fabulous when I looked at it at a t knows working group in it and then on top of that we're over it is gone on is starting to think about the vertical platforms that sit really nicely on top of that so I wanted to the spectrum with thinking about search engine optimization nations of voice thinking about voice I how do you win somebody is asking natural language processing question how you present the right answer to them it gives them the information they need and then direct them through a flow so getting your brand to position zero is really important in the voice spots yet yeah no I totally agree with that go on the second vehicle is the assist one ano? We're going to get into that mall. But that's really focused around. How do we use voice in clinical goal setting to support Eisenson noces in communicating with each other And providing that rich information transfer between them. We'll get more into that and then we're really focused on Myron is journey management once. You've left the health environment the hospital environments and you headed harms. How do we support you in sums of opened hearings in sunset Johnny managements as you continued to Move through your journey.

Tech Lead Engineer: Herding Cats & Drinks

"We often talk about our growth path as engineers. One of those pass could be attack need engineer in today's episode. We're joined by I Tony Edwards to help talk with us about the role and responsibilities of a tech lead engineer. Tony can even brief introduction of who you are what you do and in what your favorite happy hour beverages sure I'm Tony. I'm a Sophomore Inter net flicks. I spend about twenty percent of my time coding favorites vagrancy my favorite happy hour beverage is a Manhattan Bliss. You're eighty percent of your time. Doing I help run. Projects and attend meetings readings all right okay interesting. We will definitely be getting into more on that before we do. Let's give introduction of today's panelists jam. You're started off Jamyang senior software engineer Netflix Stacy London senior front and Engineer Atlassian and also a feature lead for the last year plus on a project which isn't discussed later. I'm definitely curious on that High Mars Julian. I'm a front end software engineer at AIRBNB so a little different than nomad had lost and yet. I'm not a netflix anymore. So I'm a little bit sad yeah a little bit sad and I'm Ryan Burgess. I may suffer engineering manager at Net applets in each episode of the Front Unhappy Our podcast. We loved choose a keyword. If it's mentioned it all in the episode we will all take a drink. What do we decide today's keyword. It is projects so we say the word project projects new all take a drink her. Let's jump in. How would you describe what attack lead role engineer love listening listening like that out of attending meetings the little writing code some architect? Ing squishy socks thing softens architect teens not necessarily really soft yeah. It's not but ultimately gotta lean on your fellow engineers but it's important that you set so the broad strokes folks so a lot more like planning and off front work but then letting other engineers run with something yeah you gotTa Transfer People for sure all right anything else that odds that definition. I think it's an interesting I did ask for definition in the first place because I think every company will execute it very very differently and so it's interesting to hear obviously everyone's perspective here. I think we all have a slightly different definition in mind where the like coating to sort of management management ratios might be very very different depending on where you work. I think that's a fair point is they're completely different. Depending on the company say a lead engineer sewing that is honest honest with themselves about the amount of coding they do. Tony said Yeah. I feel like your son no matter what as a tech lead you're likely coating less. I think in general is engineers in years. We overestimate how much coding we do like Oh. You're you're seeing yourself engineering. It's cutting your your pilots seventy eighty percent of the time and it's probably more like sixty percent of the time we we we got a lot of meetings yeah. I I do think as you become more senior and more complexity of your role that grows hashing that's really funny as your coating actually goes down. That's definitely the way I've seen it in in my house yeah and I like put enough. I've had a conversation with our director about this much. Hey you know I it turns out. I'm starting most of my time. I'm doing network which is like writing. Docs meetings and organizing people in wrangling different projects and like. I don't feel like I'm doing my job. He's like that. Is Your job like your job to get stuff done. No matter what it takes sometimes coating more often than not it's not coating and that's kind of what lead engineers do by the way for the word projects as Mars for wholeness countable thin sharp. I think so I mentioned Fisher lead with the introductions and that's a role. I guess I really haven't heard of that particular. Taylor role until I got to a LASSEN and it's not official like role as in like senior engineer and like a future leader or anything like it's an addendum addendum. It's like a thing that you do as senior or you actually be any level and do that particular role but it's like somebody that let's say you take a team. That's pretty big and you break them up into smaller. smaller teams to work on a particular feature so like maybe on on screen. There's like some small. thing like you're building. They are a card that does X. That's a feature you feature lead it and what that really means. You're trying to help the product manager and the designer figure out anything that needs to happen to get that done from like the technical side so they're gonNA define. Maybe what the product manager and the designer according to define like you know what is and what it should look like and you're gonNA figure out the how and it doesn't mean that you wouldn't figure out how with let's say let's say you're on a future team and you have other senior engineers or junior all levels that you're working with. They're gonNA also figure out how to build this thing but you might run interference or maybe make make it so they don't have to go otas many meetings as you do about the technical implementation. see figure stuff out. Maybe a little bit more so that they can just like go and bills and and not have to be distracted too much. I think that's that's one way to think about it. A switch that up by future too is meaning is you could be the the lead on this feature and insulin so it could be on the lead on the next feature like is it something that's kind of interchangeable totally on insult for the last year more than like a future lead on a huge each screen Bisley redoing the entire poll request experience and that is a massive thing. That's like many many many many many features and actually actually to be honest it was it was too much that was me like almost never coating and doing a lot of like interference in all sorts of stuff and recently. We decided to break that up so now we we have many feature lead. You know people from different levels not all senior. I'm just taking over and owning a little piece of that page in working through plus really Likud. I didn't actually know to feature lead was but it sounds very similar to like attack lead lead engineer whatever it is it's very similar but is very narrow focus on on this particular feature year leading this ever yeah. It's really cool. I think another area that we miss maybe defining on how to describe attack lead. They feel like you're dealing a lot more with cross functional teams. I feel like as an engineer. You're always working really closely with your team. Maybe maybe you're working with the PM the designer but oftentimes there's other requirements come across cross functionally. There's like other engineering other disciplines that need to be brought brought in and you might be that person on goes in Shepherd's that and brings a technical perspective to it. He drew clarify cross functional for those who don't speak Silicon Valley. I don't know if it's is just silicon valley but I've not heard that too much. Okay that's fair. I mean cross functional to me means different functions of the business so that might actually be like like I mentioned PM design but it could also be even cross functional engineering teams. There's like A. Ui Team is a back end team Thurs networking team. There's like who knows what your project needs but you might actually be involved in a lot of those discussions where you're talking about okay how does the the back in interface with the Ui how does the backend interface with a database and those are the types of conversations where I feel like a tech lead might be involved. It's some of those meetings that you may not. I have to have all your engineers involved in like if you're a front end engineer you may not want your entire team there but you wanNA representative and to me that someone who is tackling exactly that can represent your team in those discussions that are broader function of the Costume Sean seeds that good jump. That's okay. I'll take it a home uh-huh affair all right well since it's okay. How could you make it better. I would simplify it right I would I would say it comes as different parts of the business that may not be. It's more than one product area so start with you. Did I think you compile all right now. That was project. Project Project Tares when you're a tech lead. You're the ambassador for engineers and you may be the first point of contact that he was ever had with with your team and so it's really important to make really good impression and if you're trying to get something done obviously that's why you're at a meeting with. This person is really important. He said good context high. Make make sure to explain why what you're doing is important because why should why should they help you. You gotTA show them. Show them the lights instead of make them light. It's very you can get people to do what you want by making them do what he wants or from top down. Maybe you can depend on organization do a top down thing but much better to get them to buy into there. You have to convince people that this is a great idea. That's like psychology right like that's that's like that's. I think what's been interesting choosing to about some of the definitions of this very outward facing and there's a lot of metal work involved but there it's been alluded to before here like internally also at least looking internally within your team. engineers are really really good resources for decision making so we've talked architect eating and making decisions based on unlike technologies to move forward with given the long term context in the projects cutoff line. I think there is external and internal responsibilities as house while put yeah. I guess what kind of skills like we kinda talk about some of the responsibilities but like what kind of skills goes into Vena technically you have. I've been around the block engineering wise. You have to see and you have to have failed. You have to have succeeded. You'll have to have done something of a biggest cope before I I like the failure part because you really do learn from all your past failures of like these are the types of questions. I need to ask front so that my team doesn't fail again. I if you don't if you haven't had that experience you might get engineers that are in that that team that you're on there like this is amazing technical challenge. I can't wait to go down a rabbit hole and work on this thing forever and you're like man. Maybe that there might be a different solution. That doesn't happen before I like the I've been around the block that is added to your point failure that is such a big part is like learning what not to do just as important as learning what you should

"And like ODA stays there for a little bit and gets a new wife and she dies gets bitten by his snake dies. And like this one I'm like my God. This guy has been through so much fucking awful. Shed. Yeah. So he otas like I've been away for so long and my wife's dead. And no one. Really gets me here. And like he doesn't really adapt back to older. And he's like I wanna wanna go back I wanna go back to America. We do. So he goes back with, who with Verner goes back with Verner. And they Verner works to get him, basically, same sort of deal, but as the world's fair. But at the American Museum of natural history in New York City, where it's like he's going to have a room he's going to get paid away. He's gonna like have Altana me to walk around, and he's also in one of these exhibits. So it was kind of insane that, like Verner fought for all that, apparently like the museums like this is crazy. Yeah. Like you're asking so much, but they did grant it. And basically that was what ODA did for the next couple years was like go around this museum. And like, you know, put on a presentation, and like they dress them up in like kind of, like southern linen loathing. And like just tried to the whole thing was about, like missing link was this whole thing they were pursuing anthropologists was just, like there's there must be some sort of missing. Link people that still exist. And look, they can wear our clothes. But meanwhile otas, not a missing link. He's a regular being like, yeah I'm wearing clothes like this. Isn't you could put me next to a monkey. It doesn't make this any more logical, what you're doing so does like pretty savvy. He's a really smart guy, actually. Yeah. Earning the language he's learning how to like deal with all these people. And like there's times where say at the. American Museum of natural history that they're always putting him out to be like a we having a philanthropist come visit like we have to meet ODA. You know, like, and so it won't point they have this woman Florence Guggenheim who's, you might know from the Guggenheim sharing. Institution. Yes. She's like a young girl in like they go there and like Ota, give her a chair like draw her chair out, and he just throws a chair at her to fuck with them. Like at this point otas, so fucking over it really mad like he comes back, and he's in that museum. So he didn't like Africa or going back to Africa comes back to America. And he's like I am hating being an exhibit right point. Yeah. And like you know, he's just having such a hard time with. Like, enjoying that, you know, and the funny thing is it just gets worse. Sure. I mean how did it get better? I mean, it's the only way you're making money he's getting ogled every day. I mean getting ogled right away that sucks. But I'm sure that there's a very rude element on top of the just inherent rudeness of someone looking at you like your fucking weird like here's here's an inherent rudeness. This is like how we found out about ODA is through other people writing about what they think he must have been feeling. Well, so this is this is a nice. Little thing that was written the writers Bradford and bloom imagined. His feelings is in the Wikipedia. Madge ind-. Crazy. What a I held as attention now made him one in flea. It was maddening to be inside to be swallowed whole so long. He had an imagine. He had an image of himself stuffed behind glass, but somehow still alive, crouching over a fake campfire feeding meat to a lifeless child museum. Silence. Became a source of torment.

"This strengthen this roster is kind of, it's kind of like panning out, and then you can sit and develop mature, blah, blah, blah. But he's also saying this, please skin me a reason give me freezing the put this guy in here who everybody thinks everybody says we shouldn't have drafted as high as we did. And I'm gonna put him in there because all indications are in, in OTA's rookie minicamp. He is everything they thought he would be, so, yeah, I definitely think it matters. You don't draft guys that high and have it not matter every single word that you say about him. So get it matters. I would think so it'll be interesting to watch the giants quarterback situation for the first time in quite a while is quarterback situation, Carolina, where Cam Newton is coming off shoulder surgery and his coaches are working with him to change his throwing motion to help prevent future problems with that, sir. Surgically repaired shoulder Josina. How much does it matter that Cam is changing his throwing motion this off season? I'm actually only going to go with a five for this, because it only matters if you get caught in between the old motion and the new most when he's actually in live action summing to draw this again, if Luke can help me put on colored full burqa. My assistant. Van white. Or four five four. So, basically like I said it only about is if he gets caught in between when you're in live action, and then actual defense is not the Panthers facing you, that's when it does. But this is a guy who even the old motion was able to get to the Super Bowl started off hot last year. Six into until it started to buy them, the best thing for doing the new motion is to try to protect the soldier, so it doesn't disintegrate throughout season. Two matter whether or not actually becomes a motion that is committed to his muscle memory meeting, when he doesn't consciously thinking about the me a little bit more over the top does wind up sort of the way it used to look, one of the things that Cam does a lot is the opens his body up in the past in the most becomes along gated. He becomes read because far as his delivery and his accuracy, here, you can see. He's trying to really step to the target really bring the ball up over the top take some of the stress off of the solar, and, but it's that's easy to do when you're throwing like this. That's easy to do when you're not when you don't have the pass rush and there's no pressure when people are. Chasing you down. And, you know, they're after you all of a sudden, your body, does would naturally does. And it goes back the way it used to be the stress comes back on the arm again. Maybe the accuracy starts to suffer again, and we don't know, look, I think, with camp, sometimes we make such a big deal about this guy, as far as he needs to be better in the pocket. He needs a change on motion. He needs to be a better reader. The defense Cam is who he is, which is a fantastic player who came very close to winning the SuperBowl. Right. Enjoy him because you're not gonna see guys like this come along very often unique player, but all eyes will be on quite all there, and that throwing motion when the season gets these Nardi Seth worker show, and now we have him in the flesh. Welcome Seth to the set of NFL live, Seth, and Michael Rothstein. As I mentioned, worked on that story about the demise of the af the start, and the entire lifespan, I guess, the F, which took a few months when you look back on it, you know, in your reporting, somebody says, what's the biggest reason it didn't work. Would you say, well, it's a simple one and that's money. Yeah. And I think it's not only simple because they didn't have enough of it one of the things, but it's also because the guy that they needed the most ended up getting indicted on, on Bank fraud charges, and it left them in a desperate situation. And I think it's like one of these things that we forget about a lot just how expensive football. Yeah, it is really expensive to get off the ground. And they were their budgets were about one hundred million a year..

"Sensible Rex it fights off the threat from the insurgent Brexit party. And I have to say that, that is a the job that I believe I'm best suited to do today. Bus Johnson came out fighting yesterday to finally launch his bid the next prime minister as the field of candidates narrows impulsion way out in front can anything derail the bars express. Also this week, we'll be looking at whether any of the contenders promises on Brexit tax cuts, and the economy actually stuck up past all in this week's politics weekly. It was standing remain the at the Notre Johnson's leadership bid yesterday with hard Brexit is and conservative rising stars. All that show support with maybe an on the job in the next cabinet at the time of recording. We don't know who hasn't who hasn't got the sixteen th needs to stay on the list of contenders. But we can probably see in that Johnson Dominic Robb, Jeremy hunt, Michael Savage, avid, and Matt Hancock all on there at the moment. The contest is bosses to lose. Is he really the best man for the job or anything? Well, I'm joined to discuss all this by Isabel Harbin, from the spectator Jonathan list from British influence and politics from the guardian. How do you think the boss when yesterday sort of emerge unscathed sufficiently boring enough? Well, that was certainly a was to make it doll safety, I, which is really the, the theme of borstal since campaign when he's allowed out to speak. The aim is basically to try to make him look a bit more serious politician. And so, in terms of his speech, and in terms of I think the way he answered the questions will didn't answer them in loss of cases. I think his team would have been quite pleased with that. There was one thing that, that over-shadowed it bit thing, which was that some MP's as she heckled journalist for asking Johnson, a very reasonable question about his comments about walking women who were berkers, and it's often the case activists from parties. Get annoyed with journalists for us dear leader inconvenient questions, but it's still quite unusual for MP's to do that. And I'm not God load of welfare candidate. It's very badly for. Candidate. It makes them look defensive as they call something to hide and what I thought made it. Worse was Liz trust. One of Boris Johnson supporters that went on TV to defend her colleagues heckling saying that they were entitled to question the questions of journalists, which, I think it would be much easier. Just to say, I think some of my colleagues over excited here can also himself, the, the idea of being PM. I've been laughed at a few months ago, and an and I think that probably we thought that his colleagues had lost trusted him toy MP's lost trust in him. Particularly his performances foreign secretary. Why are they running behind? This is being quite extraordinary. It's the conservative party completely losing any sense of responsibility for the fate of the nation, the party that used to be the solid, the reliable, the party of government has become wild reckless revolutionary because they think he is the only person who might. Squeak past in general election, and save them from both thorough and from Corbin unsaved, their seats and save that party. He might on the other hand be the final explosive device that blows the whole thing apart. It might be that he is so poorly that if he really does take us out of Europe. Ota no deal that the conservative party makes it self unelectable forever afterwards because of the self inflicted chaos caused, but they reckon that as things stand, he might save them this eat a very low reason choosy. Doesn't. He He seems seems to to have been. been concentrating quite a lot on just on just securing the backing of MP's announcing a thing you know, particularly controversial into things. I think a tax cut and also that he would leave with thirty. I is just him kind of keeping things. Very simple. As best route to success is only seem sort of the moment. If you all the kind of the pole position candidate of your day you won't have any controversy under Johnson is famous for that. And so he's, he's just letting the ship go on. If you like Theresa May to the Cima thing in a way in two thousand sixteen. When she just washed everyone else, self combustion. She was the last person standing there. The problem for Johnson is that he's told the truth extraordinarily when he said that the tour spaced extinction, if it didn't liver Brexit both thirty Tober there is no way on earth. They can deliver Brexit thirty post Tober. There are a couple of weeks parliamentary time after the summer recess where nothing can be done sell you that can. No more renegotiation, and no more led to legislation. And so he's already made a rod for his own back, that the first thing he'll have to do is prime minister is go to the EU and asked to stay in it. So already the trust will be will we smash I can't understand why the Tories don't understand that. And conversely, if you did try to get that no deal. As police said, if you actually went over the cliff, and then Boris Johnson would never be forgiven out the toys, wouldn't either and then parliament, probably humiliates him and try to stop it anyway. So there's really no way through him that he can emerge from this with any kind of credibility whatsoever. Smell somebody other candidates have tried to gain a bit of credibility people like Jamie hunt, and my ankle by saying, actually it's very difficult to leave with no deal deal no deal by thirty because his Dunton's laid out. You know, it's difficult to negotiate in that anything new in that time. And also because parliament is like to stop an ideal Brexit. Do any of those candidates avenue chance of beating him when it comes to the runoff thinking people? Turn me on all the sausage avid month ago. Jeremy hunt or such genital Mike who gave the most light, he might Hancock, he mentioned, this is probably going to get knocked out, either in this round or the next one because he just doesn't have enough of a constituency within the conservative party and his pitch. We went to his launch on Monday, his pitch was slightly crazed or have. Difficult to sort of pinned on what he believed other than motivational aphorisms. I felt like I was spinning class well to relationship. The other say are trying to sort of offer a bit more realistic Brexit plan. And that's tricky in the current Tory party, because the mood in the party is not really one for any further delay. They're still reacting to the procrastination of Theresa May. I'm perhaps, not looking at the situation that she's left the party. And in trying to work out the best way out of that they just don't want anyone who's going to put it off any more, and that's why Boris Johnson. Dominic Robb were the only two candidates who even got auditions before the European research group, which is the, the most Brexit he group in, in the conservative party, and has a huge amount of power, not just in the parliament party. But also, I think amongst the conservative membership. So it's tricky, because I think there is Brexit. Purity contest going on at the moment that doesn't bear a great deal of relation to reality of those putty of, of Michael Savage. Avid, Jeremy hunter DC is having the most. Likelihood of beating Johnson, what I suppose it would be go, if he can recover from the ca- Cain hypocrisy, which really sunk him oughta rolls astonishing. But maybe he can be forgiven in which case he's much the strongest contender. He knows burst back front if he really decides to put the knife in again, as he did last time he could be very effective when one of the candidates, not really talking about a tool anymore. She was quite strangest Dominic Robb. Who did you know sort of seen as maybe he could be the true Brexit tier candidate when Boris you know, it folded early than him said he was gonna vote trees may deal. But he's lost all of that year. G support to Boris what he used on the sue the winner under Johnson is going to match rob pound for pound in Brexit. Then those no reasons about rob who is much less sympathetic charming character. You have question marks over his personal character, which haven't quite been addressed. And who is has the kind of eight. Tori. Boy thing about him bay, which is going to not be particular turn, onto the tweet party was certainly not to the wider electric. Yes. So that's always don't since we've not now all the space is really ain't rob is also tainted, his, he didn't leave the cabinet obviously, after the check is agreement that was Boris, who did that? And, and Boris Johnson is therefore able to, to claim that he is more Brexit Pierce. We come back to this incredible sort of holy Brexit. Contest is going on the Johnson survived. The backstop no one's talking about the box December. Twenty seventeen Theresa May sign us up to customs union a great time. Johnson was he knew what it was. And then after extraordinarily when he left the company said he didn't know what it was. So he was basically saying that he was the gullible stupid or liar. I didn't seem to matter because he's tashaun. It's fascinating how there's actually a higher bar for the behavior of all the other candidates part from Boris. Johnson is something his team say the whole, always purse. Life is priced in. It's almost as though he could actually have killed people. And that would also trunks shooting Fifth Avenue, the front runners who've said that they are the two, I suppose we, if we still count rob amongst the front runners that they've said that we prepared to take the UK out of the EU with no deal on October thirty first Burston Dominic Robb, the others of, of sort of said that they think it's possible that parliament would be up to stop that. But we saw yesterday at there was an opportunity for parliament to set in motion for that to be another to at least reserve another date to try and pass a law to stop it. And Isabel some people listening and probably anyone who's not been following this with the minute detail of a full-time job gonna find it quite quoted to hear that it was defeated last night, feels like parliament's voted against no deal. Quite a few times, and what can you maybe you could explain to me about what happened last night? Here's those interesting topics going on last night. You had a group of conservative MPC voted with labour on this vote, which was to allow Paul. Lament to rule out no deal in future vote just to complicating confuse matters even further. But then you had a group of labor MP's, who voted with the government people like katoey, who obviously, managed to enrage their policy on, on regular basis, with their with that Brexit views, and you also had a number of ubstantially as well. And so this is turned the labor party in on itself again, with the very pro remain pro second referendum, anti no do, and, like, Ben Bradshaw, friends since turning on their colleagues and saying how much they've let the party downs. We, we've got another labor split here. This is a big boost to those candidates. He believe parliament actually won't stop new deal. I suppose it is if, if there is a mechanism for stopping teaches clear what that make an ISM could be done that all of the people like all of let win been out this morning that the Taurean peon and the former Tory bowl saying that this was the last chance, there are no more assigned opposition day debates. Which the government has to grant, but in power to grant labor time to have debates on things where they want, but those, those days of now, run out, and there's also no obvious legislation going through parliament for for amendments to be attitude that could stop no deal. So what is the root pop from a confidence vote without is the nuclear button, the confidence. But I think that we need to look at John berko hear abo- cove is cost himself as some kind of maverick revolutionary when it sees him, and he is prepared to cost aside, conventions and rewrite the rulebook. I mean, I'm not an expert in, in three parliamentary etiquette and protocol. So I don't know exactly how much power he has. But it seems that he can rewrite us in may sort of as he goes along. So if he decides if parliament has a will, to introduce legislation, very quickly as cupid early this year, and they all given an opportunity to vote for that. I just can't see any way which was say no. The procedure says, unfortunately, what happened last night is that. Parliament decided not to have the opportunity, it'll make it very difficult. I think for berko to devise anything also you're asking him to do something way out of anything he's done so far. I think we're going to end up with whether there will be enough conservative MP's willing to bring the house down willing to have a virtual no-confidence in what who will presumably be Boris MP appear them and a call for general election. And I just don't know when it comes to it, whether the likes of people who have very anti Brexit, whether they'll really go that for what do you think is about? Do you think enough of them to actually agree with? That would be if you get government. And then in the confidence that you lose it. Yeah, I think that is your way basically saying, I've it with the conservative party who knows that things are quite Phibro at the moment till they, there is less of a thirst for leaving parties given. What's happened to change? You K because I think that stuff Shane, how difficult it is to, to go to loan from a big structure this being rumbling along for many decades labor LaTour. He's, I suppose we can, we also have to see what happens over the course the leadership contest. If Boris Johnson has heart and his position over summer to try and win over very hard. Brexit. Selectric una comes parliament is still sitting at the end of July, when he's elected then that could be the moment where his colleagues, Dominic grieve just in greening, maybe say in office enough. You're going to take on the touch toba. We know having it. And then you trigger that election, when there's still time to stop no deal. Three months later, but they will not be allowed to stand as conservative. I mean that only. Seats are there enough of them, we don't sacrifice their careers for the sake of the country? And that's what it'll come to possibly. There are enough noble minded people willing to do that. I mean, I guess one of the things that we haven't touched on his whether it's it is possible for any of these candidates to get any kind of new deal bioterr- thirty. I, I mean, we of laughing about that. But if it comes to the crunch, d think that there are people who maybe didn't believe Theresa May was prepared to take that with no deal. But may believe that someone I on snus. Well, this is the line that the sort of the Boris style candidates of news, the European Union, saying they're not going to reopen the withdrawal agreement, they're not going to start renegotiating any way. They say will they would say that wouldn't they that's kind of, you know, they're starting line in the Goshi -ation, and perhaps studies, the stance, the European Union, that will then fold when suddenly this new powerful conservative leader comes in, but even. The leadership candidates who claim they're trying to be more realistic like Jeremy hunt, for instance, still saying they want to reopen the withdrawal agreement. So all of them are prompting something that according to what has been said, so far is not realistic. How would it look from Europe? The EU is tied to these games it's actually written into the extension that you can't renegotiate withdrawal agreements that is put, so the box office and changing the only thing in might be able to. And this is a purse is to renegotiate a political declaration, which isn't going to be enough, because it has no legal way. But more importantly, there are only two things you can do the political declaration, the first is to soften it. So you explicitly asked to negotiate accustomed on a single market, which is obviously not help any, the Tories or you hard in it in the pad on the backstop, just Northern Ireland and not cleaves the concert. India's partying one clean slice. So there's nothing that they can do, which will help them tool on the backstop is simply not of negotiation. It's only use political interest to sacrifice its. Leverage for a prime minister. He hates them and the feelings mutual. Thanks willie. Back after this.

But they've lost Moseley, they don't have suggs their, their leader their team leader overall team leader. But that defense last year at times looked like his good defenses. We had seen in the NFL, and in several, they may be on the verge assign a jail McCoy, he's their one of their one of the spice the there was one other thing I wanted to mention that is the league considering, you know, for this upcoming CBA discussion once again, they're throwing it out there about the eighteen game regular season, the players, I just don't think are going to go for it, and they would require so much more. But a personally to me. As a fan if you told me we're gonna cut the preseason to two games, and we're going to add two games in, you know, in into January, and in eighteen game slate we're going to increase the roster sizes and maybe give a second by week and then we're gonna play the Super Bowl on presence. They weekend in February. I, I wouldn't have a problem with that at all. I can't stand for preseason games. But whatever I think they could cut the preseason games and leave the regular season games at sixteen. The problem is the preseason games are all profit margin just because they don't pay the players. There's the expenses are so much lower for these preseason games for the teams. All right. We've both picked Golden State and six I like the raptors tonight, minus one and a half will do a lot on game.

Wendi nix field Yates Victor Cruz. Louis riddick. We will start this afternoon in the Lone Star state as we mentioned the Cowboys are among the fifteen teams on the field today for OT as Ezekiel Elliott did participate. He was also asked about a recent incident in Las Vegas, captured by TMZ sports that showed Elliott, shoving and pushing a lodging, Agha's security guard. He was not arrested charged. The video of Zeki. Oh Elliott surfaced. And have you spoken to him about that? I've no real comment beyond just being aware of the situation and Steven Jones spoke on behalf of the organization, the other day. Tat Archer covers the Cowboys. He joins us now Todd. How is Dallas dealing with the latest situation surrounding Zeke Elliott? Pretty much business as usual here. Wendy, the, the Cowboys going through their second OTA practice of the off-season. Zeke is out here doing everything. The individual worked at teamwork taking his last carrier last play of each period. Sixty seventy yards to the end zone. And as you heard Jason Garrett would not get did not want to comment on what happened in Las Vegas. Referring, Stephen Jones. We talk Steven Jones on Monday. He said, this would not impacting impending negotiations for the running back. They still believe him. They have a lottery spec for Zeke and they want to sign him up long term. But right now, they're focused is on Amari Cooper Dak Prescott, they will to get something seek, but so far, that's, that's where the Cowboys are heading business as usual. With Zeke Elliott a long to do this several changes by the way to the Cowboys offense you've got a new offense coordinator in new quarterback codes chasing. Whitten is back. How does all of that affect the quarterback Dak Prescott? Yeah, I asked Jason Garrett that question here today during the press conference about if they have to do more with this offense because of the new faces even if Jason ga- Jason witnessed an old face. But Randall Cobb is here came from Green Bay Kellen more than new offensive coordinator implementing some changes as offense John kidnapped quarterback. Coach really getting on Dak Prescott about his foot work, and his mechanics and trying to make sure that is straight. So there's a lot to do here even though this is an offense that Elliott's in his fourth year Prescott entering his fourth year that offensive line, the core of that guy been around for a long time, the receivers still kind of getting used to tackle the Mari Cooper, but there's a lot of work for this Cowboys offense to go through here, early in these OTA's, because they know that you have to do a much better job in twenty nine hundred if they wanna Vance further in the playoffs tied. Thank you. And Victor, I will start with the because we had a chance with failed and Louis discuss this yesterday. But look, again, I want to be clear, there were no charges filed. It wasn't arrested but he's e Elliott has had a history of sort of being in the wrong place at the wrong. Would it? Give you pause. If you were the Cowboys and you were discussing a long term deal, not necessarily understand, you know where he is. He wasn't arrested. This incident didn't have any legal ramifications. But the only thing I take away from that is the video after watching it. He was by himself. There wasn't any friends. There wasn't any around him. Anyone around him? There wasn't anyone that seemed like he knew or was around for him to take care of him. When he's out in about in public, places like this he has to understand that he is Zeke Elliot and that no matter where he goes, he needs to have someone there, even if it's just a best friend security, bodyguard, whatever it is. He needs to have someone there to watch him and make make sure that he's okay. And that he's held accountable for the things that he's doing that. He's in a positive state of mind, and that he's in a positive state no matter where he goes, clearly this could've escalated. It doesn't look like it did was pretty, but it could have been a lot worse than to your point. You want to have a circle around you to help you make good..

Drought in Somalia could hit not only livelihoods but also pastoralists identity

"This is Conan Lennon from UN news with drought in Somalia on the verge of affecting two point two million people across the country, almost a fifth of the population UN agencies are calling for urgent funds for critical livelihood support in an interview on Wednesday with you a news, the head of the UN office for the coordination of humanitarian assistance orcher in the capital, Mogadishu noted the resilience of the Somali people who don't freely accept charity stressing that Stroud is causing crops to fail and livestock today. Otas, Justin, Brady said that not only livelihood were at stake, but the whole centuries old identity of pastoralists in the region. Mr. Brady spoke to your news is pulling Greer. We had come into the year with a forecast of a average long rainy season. What is called the goose season here? Unfortunately, due to the cyclones in the southern Indian Ocean. The rains were inhibited from moving north. And before tests has radically changed to much more negative outlook for the season with an initial failure of the rains were seen some localized rains now but much of it coming to little too late for the agricultural sector in the country, and how many people are affected or could be affected by this drought Somalia's a protracted crisis. So we entered the year with an estimated one point five million people in crisis in emergency, as far as food, insecurity goats that number was elevated, one point seven million after the dry season that ended in March and the estimate. Now, though it is based on a hopeful prospects for rains in may and June. Which, again, are not materializing is that we will climb two point two million people in crisis in emergency as far as food insecurity goes. Now, if we look at a twenty seventeen when we faced a famine warning, we, we had a total of two point nine million people in price in emergency. So we're not at those levels, and we don't expect to get there, but they're certainly climbing very quickly heading into the remainder of this rainy season. And what is the UN doing to assist the people? Well with our partners, we are working in coordination with the government, and both at federal end state levels to mobilize resources to activate the mechanisms that we put in place in twenty seventeen which proves successful in averting famine, a lot of that is cash based programming using the markets of that are functional in Somalia to allow people to access food, and to step up in areas of nutrition, health and water availability across the. Country. Really? Now, the situation north was already bad in the beginning of the year, we had received an allocation, from the central emergency response fund, rapid response window for drought, a couple of months ago, and unfortunately now will be expecting the need for additional resources, not just from the surf, but what we've appealed for two days ago with seven hundred ten million dollars from June till the end of the year in order to scale up response sufficiently to meet the needs any personal stories of the people that you've met that you've spoken to that you would wanna share the stories. Unfortunately, reminiscent of twenty seventeen reminiscent of twenty eleven we're seeing these Radic weather patterns that are synonymous with climate change in Somalia, leaving people in the worst situations of single mother headed household displaced from her. Village, not just by drought. But also insecurity having an impact on that. And she's come to the outskirts of Mogadishu settled into an informal, sediment in his now reliant and till Somali people. They are not ones who freely accept charity in the it's difficult for them to be put in a position where they are reliant. Independent on others for their, their wellbeing. Another good example, I think is discussions with the minister at the state level, who raised the question if this continues, how viable is a pastoralist lifestyle going forward. And that's not just a question of a livelihood for sixty five percent of the population in that state. But it's the identity of that population itself, they are nomadic pastoralists their grandfathers and grandmothers, their great, great, great grandmothers grandfathers were nomadic pastoralists. So you're talking about an impact on people's lives livelihoods. But also. Their identity.

Nonstick chemicals that stick around and detecting ear infections with smartphones

"Hello. This Welcomes the science podcast for may seventeenth two thousand nineteen. I'm Sarah Crespi this week show Meghan. Cantwell talks with science writer Saratova's about a nonstick chemical that sticks around in groundwater, and I talk with sham. Ota about his science translational medicine paper on using a smartphone. So listen for ear infections. I'm here with Sarah helps who wrote this week's feature to talk about how a small group of citizens in Rockford Michigan uncovered groundwater contamination in their town. And with the greater implications of this discovery are thinks much joining me. Sarah, thanks for having me, Meghan, of course. So could you talk about what prompted these citizens to investigate whether the shoe company factory in their town? Wolverine worldwide had contaminated their water in two thousand and nine wolverine worldwide announced that they would be closing their tannery, which had been inoperational for over a century. And the citizens were requesting the company I do a comprehensive environmental assessment of the property before the demolition. They knew from other tannery closures that Henry's often use hazardous substances when they're transforming rawhide. Hides into leather. And so they wanted to be sure that those same substances had not been sort of left behind on the tannery grounds. They were told that because there was no evidence of contamination on the property, that there was really essentially, no way require that testing be done. Meanwhile, will Verena had said there was no known contamination on the property. They asked the city to assess the site, but they did not want to instead they went and got the help of a scientist and launched their own investigation. What did they find from this, they uncovered helped uncover some of the highest levels of Pecos contamination in drinking water wells anywhere in the country and after many years of trying to get the company to test, the tannery grounds discovered that the tannery grounds are also contaminated with pitas, what exactly is p fasten? How long is this chemical been in production p bosses are a class of chemical? Nls known as per in Pali fluoro- alkyl substances. They were first synthesized by American chemists in the nineteen thirties and forties and their salient chemical feature is that they have a carbon fluorine bond, and that's among the strongest of all chemical bonds. It doesn't degrade naturally an environment that can be very useful for some products at lens durability. And also, these compounds can repel water and oil and stains, and so they're widely used in products, such as firefighting foams, nonstick, coatings, carpets, food, packaging, even dental floss some dental floss, it was discovered recently, there are over four thousand of these compounds. But the two most widely studied are called PF OA sometimes referred to as PICO and PFOS those two are no longer in production in the US. What are the impacts of these? Goes on human health were still looking into that. There was a massive epidemiological study called the seat health project, fat looked at people exposed in West Virginia and Ohio, they were exposed to fella, and their drinking water. And in that project what they found was a probable link to six conditions that included high cholesterol, all sort of colitis by ROY disease, stickler cancer, kidney, cancer, and pregnancy induced, hypertension initially, a lot of the Pecos research, focused on these communities, where there had been this high level of exposure, more recent studies, have started looking at the general population, and I think that that's where this gets really interesting because what they're starting to find is that studies are suggesting that even people exposed to what might be referred to his background levels of p fusses show, negative health effects, most interestingly and may be most concerning laid. Some of these negative effects are on the developing fetus babies. So researchers are saying that it can affect, for example, the immune system and these populations. Is there a standard level for what's considered a dangerous p fast level or is that something that's still also being determined? That is very much being determined and a believe it was two thousand and nine the EPA established a health advisory level of six hundred parts per trillion of PF. Oh. A and PFOS combined drinking water. And then in twenty sixteen. They dropped that level significantly to seventy parts per trillion and that in twenty eighteen a branch of the CDC came out with a new study suggesting Twenty-one parts per trillion for PF away and fourteen parts per trillion for PFOS, and then you have some researchers one at Harvard saying one part petroleum is where that level should be. So there's a lad of conversation around. What is a protective level in drinking water, this investigation in the small town has also prompted other areas to look into what their p Fasces levels are, and what has this unveiled one of the interesting consequences of the concerned, citizens work is that shortly after the state of Michigan launched what I believe is the most comprehensive statewide survey searching for pizzas, and they found is that here in Michigan. Nearly one point four million residents are drinking water from orces, contaminated with pitas. It's also showing up and things like foam, that's on our rivers. And so there have been a number of advisories. Do not eat befo. Don't touch the phone fish advisories, dear advisories. It's really extensive ubiquitous exposure to these compounds. And then other states also. Oh, are just starting to look, but nobody has looked quite as comprehensively as the state of Michigan has right. It interesting that all these investigations are being prompted but this also isn't the first time that p asses have been under investigation happened several decades ago as well. Right. Are you referring to the DuPont trial? Yeah. Sometime around nineteen ninety nine early two thousands a cattle farmer in West Virginia suspected that something was going on. Some of his farm land had been purchased by DuPont and not long after that his cattle died, and he wasn't able to get much help locally. And so he ended up going to a Cincinnati-based Turney who sued the company and in the process of that he was able to obtain a lot of internal documents from DuPont. And what he found in those documents was that both DuPont, and three who. Had been making pieces as well. Head Ben documenting negative health effects from exposure, experienced by humans and animals, and that they hadn't done enough to make this available to the PA, for example. And so the attorneys sent these documents to the EPA, and subsequently DuPont, was fined, and three m was fined believe a year later, was around that time that both companies agreed to voluntarily phase out PF away and PFOS. So when they phased them out, they replace them with a different chemical is this one actually safer persists lessen the environment. Well, that is a matter of conversation. They replaced PF away and PFOS those two compounds are known as long chain pieces. They replace them with shorter chain passes. So molecules with fewer carbons and. What we do know is that those carbons don't bio accumulate the same way as the longer chain compounds. And for that reason, there's an assumption out there that these are safer, but there are studies, just starting this is just starting to be studied suggesting that this might not be the case and the national toxicology program. For example, is in the process of starting study of believe it's one hundred twenty five of these lesser known. Short chain compounds to see if they really are safer than the longer chain compounds after this, this fine that they received were their cleanup efforts, or is there, a way to clean up these P asses from water supplies. What we know is that you can use something called granular activated carbon to filter out in particular longer chain passes, so PF away, and PFOS from drinking water, however. That approach. It has variable success with the shorter chain passes which can sometimes break through the filter and they can break through more quickly. So one of the things that water systems are starting to look at is using perhaps a combination of granular activated. Carbon with reverse osmosis, which is a little bit more effective at filtering out short chain passes. All of this though is very expensive. And so that has really put especially some of these smaller municipalities in a tough spot, and others Superfund cleanup sites that kind of thing is there any sort of fund that these local communities can tap into that ole pay for this remediation, one of the things is that because pizza's is not as needed as a hazardous substance. It doesn't qualify as far as I know for cleanup funds through Superfund now, some states are starting to pass their own legislation. In New York, for example, does designate FOSS as a hazardous substance so you can get funding through there. And then the other thing that states are starting to do is actually sue the manufacturers to try and recuperate some of the costs of updating their drinking water systems. Would you say this whole investigation all across the country is still kind of the first step of finding where these sites are? And then the next step of cleanup is still a little bit murkier. Yes. That's very true. Historically are understanding of pizzas and exposure has really been concentrated in these areas around particular very few limited number of military, bases, and also communities that are near manufacturing facilities, and what we're starting to find now is, especially as we have the tools to detect passes at lower levels were finding that these are in drinking water supplies and places, people would never have suspected. But not everybody is looking. And so that's one of the things that I think different states, and different municipalities will be grappling with for years to come. Thank you so much. Sarah.
