"Good and the cells are as good as they get on navy with that stuff in topnotch next. We'll talk about the pre-production version of a south korean. Come the kea. av six. So when these two cars were announced they hunt by five and the kea eighty-six hyundai was first and it was the I must admit from first impressions. The kea looked from the outside. Styling like i was going to prefer but now he's gonna live with those two. 'cause i'm really leaning towards preferring the hyundai iona five. Those cars made their way tamaki already. The project forty five cars. Which is a special edition. So here that's the glass roof sunroof the electric risk seats. I know unless of other toys should be with the new owners Today i think tomorrow over the weekend one of my listeners who lives in dorset and say his name. I haven't checked. I'm allowed to is expecting One and said hey you welcome to come in you know have a look if you want We will on the podcast. we'll go. i can go with him for delivery. Die but hey it's been delayed a bit. Let's get him get his nice new car. And then we can. Go around with the microphones. But the other is the key. Eighty six and nick had a pre-production drive a while ago. Now so maybe that was an embargo they say. The interior of the kea is cool. They love the wide screen on the dash. Yep the screen on the kabc. Six is curved around the driver on the hyundai five is completely flats along the dash more so that the passenger i think can use the infotainment stuff kia seems more like a bit of aimed at the driver. As it was they say the shifter is a rotary dial with park at its vertex and are an md and again comes down to personal preference. The hyundai onic five has got a on the Right hand side on the steering column. It's a stalk whereas the kea has gone with the little tiny nabi. direly thing way you hand would rests. Where guest. I guess would be a power button. Sits elevated above the shifter the wireless charging pad via phone is like i did it behind their two twelve volt power outlets on the lower deck and the usb usps's in the kia usb as in the hyundai. Why is it different. It's the same company anyway. So that might make a difference to you. Kia six is right. Quality said nick was stiff. But this was a pre-production car reasonably quake. Though in the navy without sounds or shifts the sprint is a graduate of fat. And blow your brains out a fab but there is kid eighty-six. Gt coming next year. That's five hundred and seventy-six all's power so not sports car but he says i had a good time zipping around twisty streets in the countryside north of frankfurt. What makes the special is not. It's handling not its power is the design. The outside is quirky and found. The cabin is a cool place to be. So this journalist next about opel slash vauxhall as i would call it vauxhall. Europeans would call the opel opel. Vauxhall releasing the family staple the astra a legendary name. When you talk about family. Cars astra mondeo ford focus. The astra is going. Pure electric opel will offer. The new astra as a pure electric model arrives in the marketplace. In twenty twenty three. They've announced at their official presentation of the sixth generation of the astra. So many people have owned astra in. There's been so many models of astra as well as state versions and jade ziva since launch As a pure battery electric car in twenty twenty three they'll be plugging hybrid versions of it coming next year. If you want them now. I assume a battery version sooner. You can get the plug in hybrid version next year There's also the a s. Which is the fancy pants. Bit of sitter and the kind of quirky sort of Very fringe but if syndrome ds the ds four and the astra actually share the platform technical basis the emp to platform Both built opel's ruesselsheim plant. I got that massively wrong. By the way. Sorry all gem and listeners. The existing based on that platform either lie large vans and transporters like the citra when east space torah the opel models. Affair a life. Or the vivar a i. The astro will be available to older this autumn and the plug in hybrid versions delivered at the beginning of two hundred twenty two five model or an estate version with the astros sports tour following public to electric in the show nights for that full story if you want to read more next. We'll talk about motor fuels group here in the uk mfg on a bunch of four course until now. They've made money out of petrol. Diesel vasie an electric future. I find that fascinating. Mfg has opened up their first four caught with dedicated. Ivanka's chandra's instructed manchester. The site had eight ultra rapid charges. I would say ultra rapids of Three fifties but maybe it say that high-powered charges hpc's but these are eight one hundred and fifty kilowatt charges in manchester the site. The william banister said quote we all delighted to be opening an ev. Only four court that offers ultra rapid charging on the chester road in stretford a first for the north west of the country with eight ultra rapid charging by his. We believe the site will help lead local transition to more sustainable vase and quote. Yes we've got a few of these electric forecourts colts cropping up there's one in braintree with grid serve. that's massive. That's like thirty three charges. I think in a ton of three at twelve i think. Twelve or fourteen. Three hundred and fifty kilowatt units that But yeah most fuels group Again a company that is based on selling your patrimoine diesel and making a dedicated. Av four court this one in manchester which is great for the north west Rather than adding on the charger on that petrol station forecourt really really interesting move. I would like to have them on this podcast to talk about. How a you know a full court network. A petrol company effectively they will petrol. Retailer is going to move to evey. So maybe i'll reach out to them. This move forms part of their plans to spend four hundred million pounds on ebay charges. Coming saying we'll talk about the hyundai out five the n. Version of the rapid version being spotted and some electric van. Stuff coming up as well stick around. That's on the white now. We'll talk about cox automotive acquiring a battery health company cox automotive is getting into the space and the battery life cycle space. The company said yes. That i it had acquired oklahoma city based spies new technologies. That's a business that provides repair manufacturing refurbish and repurposing of ev battery packs. According to tech crunch the that they want to evs rather Have a different savage profile than fossil cars and it comes down to the battery that can be up to forty percent of vehicles cost now cox automotive saying they're going to use diagnostic tools with ev. Buys and used car buys to push confidence in the vase likening it to the way that kelley blue book provides transparency about piston cars conditioned to consumers. But doing that for eve as really really interesting is another company. That does that while they could re re current. I'll i'll dig into that but yeah it. It's an interesting spice. Isn't it like getting that confidence to use. Av buys the you know. Do i buy a used ebay. That's twenty thousand miles. I walked condition. The battery is the battery in. If it were me i would turn up with an ob to dangle and some software on my phone that'd be plugging in and looking all of the data. But no one else is going to do that. Really you want to get like a report. Printout a pdf says what condition the batteries in how many modules they have health etc etc. That is going to be a really interesting area as we move into more. These being sold used. Isn't it like you. People are gonna want confidence in buying a used ebay fascinating right next hyundai's ionic five the n. version. We think we've seen it because spy photographers snapped a few shots of an ionic five driving around with large brake discs sporty lightweight rims looking like nothing like any of the rims on the production cows sticky already p zero ties. Let we think this is probably a hot version of the ionic. Five to match the kea eighty-six. Gt performance car. That's all three and a half second to sixty we think that is the humble version of the. They're going to go to the n or five. N i think more on that as we get those stories. But that i mean if that's like three and a half seconds all-wheel to not sixty miles now one hundred kilometers an hour all-wheel-drive eight hundred volt system charges. At two hundred and thirty kilowatts. I mean that is a compelling car right if you want performance and absolutely latest cutting edge technology citra. Let's do some van. Let's divined stuff. Yeah let's talk vans citron citra win in the uk open their order books for the lingo new. All electric. The lingo is panel van with two body lengths crew van as well stars at twenty four thousand pounds. The ebeling go has. Hey we got you know. I'm going to say it's the it's that famous. Arizona talk about Any commercial vehicle from this group. It's all the same. So you're ready fifty kilowatt hour battery one hundred kilowatt motor and one hundred kilowatt charge speed. Now some of these vans do come with seventy five kilowatt. How battery. So i'm chasing bed. But they all have the same specs. It's the same platform it's really solid is not gonna win any awards. But it's i think so. What is needed to get commercial vehicles out in number one hundred. Seventy one. Miles of range pozzo. A next in the news pershing opening their doors to the new e partner hundred percent electric four point four meters long or four point eight for the extended shem it's identical load volume to the petrol version or diesel version of the partner van because the batteries under the floor loads of loads space pinal von again and hundred and three kilograms or on the standard length version great for fleets exactly the same specs on that vauxhall. Let's talk let's talk vauxhall opel. Vauxhall combo a and the milano e making neglect global debut. Why am i talking about all these. Well there's a commercial van show in the uk right now. So they all getting released images of the all new vauxhall move on a and the combo a of the global davies the commercial vehicle show is at birmingham's and ac the all new move-on a is first light commercial vehicle so think of ford transit competitor. You don't know what i'm talking about. Cloth leading space. They say seventeen cubic meters and again the hundred and well this one hundred and thirty miles of to lantis announcing a one hundred million pound investment in the ellesmere port manufacturing plant in the uk to bring commercial vehicles the markets. A ton of really solid fleet stuff all around one hundred fifty hundred seventy miles reasonably falls charging and in just a ton of late panel van crew van every possible combination this so many on the market and i can't explain to my you know. Us listeners australian listeners that we are really really really spoiled for choice akeso tesla's or expensive to buy but we've got so many vehicles coming to market this year next year which europe is getting and and i just i wish these vehicles will well look global vehicles worldwide because it was needed more choice and his so much happening is what i love making a global podcast Rather than focusing on one manufacturer or one territory question of the week time right now with a mobility norway dot com as caused like the only five and the ford f. one fifty. Lightning arrive being able to draw power from that traction battery and reasonable amounts with plug sockets on domestic plug sockets. We're gonna plugging more things into our cars possibly even using cows to judge.

"So i don't think it's you know i won't say too much more on that but on let's just say that there's a lot of drama present and He's not necessarily a family guy. Let let let's. Let's put it that way. He can try to use that front but he doesn't really care as much about his family. And that's definitely coming out. you definitely see that through these little events. There's like his daughter's school play that he doesn't really care about in. There's just a lot of stuff with that so that does play into his character although again the narrative that we're going for as We'll we'll we'll explore just a second because we also see kevin garnett and He's brought in by keith stanfield character. dna Who is basically responsible for bringing people to the jeweler or to make sales and kevin garnett is brought there and he is showed the opel how he says. Oh look at this opel that i just got in and kevin garnett so fascinated with it. He says i need this and he says i'm sorry it's not for sale. So he lends him the opel and apparently it has magical powers because we find out that went after he has the opel with him and he's like rubbing it like a genie lamp in the in the locker room. Or whatever I it basically makes them explode for a crazy amount of points. He has like a really good day In its keep in mind. This is i think during this game game five of the nba championship or something like that. So stakes games. That a lot of bets are being placed in again. We'll talk more about that in just a second. But this also This causes cowie to gamble on him which he does. And there's a whole thing that happens. Where with the stone. And i won't get into the nitty gritty. 'cause there's just so much that happens But essentially what ends up the the the pieces that fall into place here. Are that how he wants to sell the stone for a million kevin garnett's offering him one hundred seventy thousand. He feels like he can get way more than that. So from kevin. So what does he do. He goes to the auction. He tells kevin to buy at the auction and he says All right he pulls guy he says. I want you to bid on the stone and get kevin's price up to at least two hundred thousand and in the attempt of doing that he actually buys the stone pretty much from himself blocking kevin garnett from actually getting the stone causing more drama with that and i. It's just it just makes things way too complicated Because now he's essentially made it somewhat of an enemy and kevin although he ends up making the sale and selling the stone the stone kevin Which really opens up the endgame of this movie which i will go into much more in in-depth on just a second here But again it's so important to mention the fact that he throw every step of the way..

"Industry in the next ten years. But i would say that the key point from my perspective is around digitalization so connectivity within the car but also digitalization in terms of people by costs so i think Selling online is the big big topic. We learned about this much more now in the pandemic so the whole topic of digitalization is probably changing the automotive industry very very strongly. Maybe even more than the powertrain one. And i mean we are in good. Company was all the other industries. But i think the whole topic of digitization from a customer point of view but also from a product point of view i think is very very big change and of course. We have to do a lot of things to get ready for this so digitalization is from my perspective. That the next big big topic for us michael.

"Because at the end of the day we offer mobility to our customers. We want to give them excitement with our kosin offer. Clean and safe mobility. And i think we we shouldn't forget this. This is really the key of our business at the same time. The political framework is is changing. Got from the site tried to do. Is we want to be open for various technologies. Yeah what's very obvious now. Is that inefficacious gaining momentum. It's gaining momentum. We saw that last year. Our sales of electric find cost is increasing. We see that also this year and basically we prepare no the future shot with this growing demand of electrification or basically. We also want to be open for other technologies because see you to reduction is not only electric. Cars are like last year on the side would reduce our two emissions by three graeme which is quite significant and of course also gas and diesel engine contributed to this great performance but long story short. We want to be open for what technologies but we see clearly. Electrification is is picking up now so you have a portfolio moment. That's talked about the house. I sees has plugging libraries Electric's shooting off Even fuel costs shields batons and you just described. It's you want to be ready for all the market geologist. There is not a longer term alternate will show looking five or even ahead. Do you think that you maintain this broad equality portfolio so at the moment we have two architectures and we call them mighty energy and they basically for one con. It's taken open. Costa you can produce on one assembly line against gas and electric and this works very very flexible. We are very agile. In whatever happens in the market we feel real very this so i think this is a very good approach for the next couple of years but then more outwards we think that electrification will gain momentum and also as part of gupta lantis. We were transitioned to pure electric platforms. And i think this is the way to think about this and on top of this we look also at things as you mentioned Nico up though. We think this is a very attractive technology. Many advantages giant jumps off challenging time. Also co to balance. But we transitioned from alexei. Mighty energy approach to lend pure electric going forward. What is the the platform. Strategy was something that i wanted to come back to later on but since you brought it up for you for of course against dancers yes but is that we given the fog. That's as you say looked asian games momentum and in a few years time you will perhaps needs to separate platforms one for electric and one for the non electric parts. Electric sales gain momentum. He's not the most energy plot from approach. The some that you think will stay with you for a few more years at the end of the day the customer will decide and then we will decide how long we run the mind energy matt phones as i said earlier at the moment we feel very comfortable this because it gives us lakes ability but then we expect that electrification will gain momento so at one stage we will switch to electrify platforms. But of course we have flexibility for how long we run the energy. That's so. I think it's always good to be open for for many scenarios and not just focus on one. I feel. This is very very important because it's hard to predict exactly what the customer will require in. Let's say five six seven years one thing is for sure. The political framework is is very clear. So we have to improve on you two and therefore ups electrification and fuelled said will pay the play a major rohingya. You're talking about the customer. What what. They want earlier own about very large increase in the electric vehicle sales in europe last year. Feel the where moment where you're seeing organic demand for primary electric cars or still regulatory driven the market pushed by the automakers in order to reach some the very tough emission limits minutes here in europe from from the very clearly see custody much. It started last year. It's increasing now. Of course the question. Will it continue like this because to give you a data point like last year sold five thousand electrified costs. This is around five six percent of our total volume and of course we see this growing also in twenty one so we think customer demand is increasing but the key question is will come to levels of thirty forty fifty percent very very shortly and it also obsolete depends on support from the government charging infrastructure many factors but we do think custody is significantly increasing significantly increasing going forward as you have sir multiplatform strategy multi allergic platform for your shake shooting knocks to the to the electric platforms coders the strategy and which brought from be used affect your ability in electric car center hub. You even define the ability to pa show. There is another discussion of the industry. Now thought will be. The twenty five for different segments will be earlier for other segments. It would perhaps all the way up to thirty. Maybe from a from a from some people think to help you see the ability of electric car straight maryland. Buttery electric cars develop into the next thing the next several years so when we from the side locates requirements of profitability of electrified. Be don't differentiate between the electrified costs in you costs because at the end of the day we have to come to similar levels right. I mean obviously the volume is is reduced. At the moment. Many things were changed. Obviously we also support from governments in various countries but long story short. We have the same requirements in terms of profitability. I think it would be very difficult to differentiate for a long period of time and say look profitability of electrified causes much lower than for icy. So we have to come to similar levels at very important requirements. And when you see about that time frame is something you can share. You see these Ability of the same level the next five years or longer for your for business. Why are we still this. Obviously already today. Because the question is today and i don't want that electrified causes lower profitability than i see and we tried everything to do so that this is going in the right direction now for a very short break.

Adopting New Technology in Rehab with Ian Opal from Restore Skills
"Here's ian opel from restore skills having a conversation about how we we drive clinicians to adopt new technologies in. Welcome to show are you. I'm fantastic groppy at. Yeah thanks for being part of what we're doing here so for those who don't know you give us a little background about yourself and what brings you to what you're doing today which is working in tech well. Most importantly my background is an occupational therapist. Have been for twenty five years Clinically my passion has always been dementia capable care so twenty years. I've been certified as a dementia capable therapist and it taught me early on the importance of having a person centered approach. And so i. I had to learn when i was working with individuals with dementia. That it's important that you learn their interests habits tendencies preferences work history family history to gain their trust in agreement before even being able to do anything clinically. Why am i giving you that. That intro is is. I had no idea would become so well. Rooted in person centered care. And over the years i had a career both in operations Clinical and nfc in a real drop off in a person. Even though we talk more about. I've seen a real real drop off clinically of therapists. Today engaging their patients offer the best possible experience to get the best possible outcome so about a year ago i stepped away from the operation side and invested in a digital health field and have been working on developing a product called restore skills. Where today. I'm i'm serving the chief clinical officer for this new technology
Emerging Opportunities and Exciting Business Lessons with John-Paul Iwuoha
"Now. We are talking about africa. I wanna know john paul. Why why do we need to keep africa on our radar very interesting question. So one one thing that keeps me. Loyal to entrepreneurs on fire is the quality of stories and experiences of ultra preneurs. Who've made it that's one big reason. Why listen and. I'm also sure that's why many people listen to the show but interesting is what being on entrepreneur means that you're able to live in the now and also prepare for future so it's almost impossible to think about the future and nothing about and here's why when you look at the population of the world. Africa correctly has the youngest population of people. Right now sixty percents of people on the continent of the age of twenty five. So this is more or less looking at china. Before china became china up to date china more or less the second biggest economy in the world the factory of the world and all of that so you can imagine that people who saw china. The china became china. Actually the ones who got in on the meat of the game. So that's exactly what africa represents but more importantly there have been events in the past couple of years that have put africa in the centerpiece. The very most the most recent one which is very interesting is covid now all the time most companies have built their supply chains around china and south east asia but then when it hits it was obvious that supply chains with very vulnerable. And if you're going to diversify your supply chain. It's impossible not to look at africa if you're looking at affordable label if you look at them. The truck symmetry of the continental either north america or europe. And what are the means. Most countries on the continent either speak english or french and these are more or less global line. Which is you're going to penetrate any of the big markets and. It's really now happening. Because what the chinese are doing is the chinese. Market is starting to specialize in advanced high-tech stuff. I most of those low cost production that brought business the whole of storing from america. When are beginning to see going to places like vietnam. Bangladesh and other countries in southeast asia. But then you cannot forgo a population of one point three billion people which is what africa presents and what we're seeing is some companies setup accretions within the african continent places like rwanda at the opium ghana senegal. And what they're doing is they are preparing. These guys are digging for the future and one interesting. That's happened in the last four years in america. Is the people in africa. So in america when you think about africa the image that comes to mind is charity and philanthropy. Africa needs. Needs help and help and help. So the approach of the americans this time and even europe has been to help africa give africa aid. Give them all of that. What the chinese are doing is they're coming with more or less trade and business and things. What africa needs really because you have this population of very young people enterprising people. I mentioned that sixty percent of the world's uncle beats at arable. Land is in africa so in most parts of the world with maxed out the land space. Yes we're doing. We're using technology and other means to increase the yield on the land. But when we're talking about virgin space. Federal land arable land. Most of it is still in africa. Still cultivated and we're looking at a global population that is set to double back at least by the time we reach two hundred fifty or more according to the un and if we do not keep pace with globe with population growth would amount of food were producing then the world is going to be faced with serious threat of hunger so these are just a few examples of why africa needs to be on your rita. Yes so thinking about now. It's great but you're thinking about the future you need to remember that even before could hit five of the top. The top ten fastest growing economies in the world when africa. These are not really things. We've seen the mainstream media. Why i'm happy that chain. Is that the approach of the chinese in africa. Doo controversial is a big difference. This guy's coming here boots on the ground and they're dealing with the market. The previous relationship with africa has been to deal with africa's governments give african governments money for age and they develop africa unfulfilled years. It's never happened instead. It's helped enhance corruption. A sense of entitlement and dependency so most of the problems never get so because that's free money free money fluent in from europe money flowing in from north america so what people like us exist to do is to show that the people we should be voting. For with our money is the entrepreneur's they're the ones who have the incentive and the motivation to really solve africa's problems and guess what's global money starting to call me and i'm sure many ago minova listeners. On on on entrepreneur no stripe the big global player in in payments strike just acquired an african company. Niger company for two hundred million dollars. That's a major exit and it's stories like this that are starting to prove that africa is not a charity case. Africa is opportunity. The programs are trying to solve through eight. Actually need to be solved through entrepreneurship and the process. We create more jobs more wealth and greeted big happier world john. Let's talk about what you see as the most interesting opportunities that exist right now. I mean you talked about a lot of opportunities. I love how you really are hammering home. The fact that entrepreneurship is what is going to turn africa around and really bring that continents into the as we move forward into twenty twenty one and beyond but specifically what are the one or two most interesting and fascinating opportunities in the business world that you're seeing right now. The first interesting one is more or less. I talked about it earlier. In terms of africa's potential to produce food because right now we're looking for the next food basket of the world and one interesting that africa offers is the or what's we've we now know as superfoods so for example there's a grain that's grown in west africa. It's a green code for new now. This green is so rich in cultural significance for example when the tombs of ancient in jim ships are more or less opel excavated amongst other materials. Like honey. and things like that four new for new f- who is one of the greens that it that the ancient egyptians actually put in the the pyramids in the borough chambers of dead feroz. That's tell you how important it was back. Then this is like one of the longest growth one of the greens has been grown the longest in history almost five thousand years now. The reason why new is important is when you look at the american market and european market more or less developed world and you see how important health and wellness is this all about eighteen. Organic food. Gluten free food and things like that you announced that to see if like for new is actually superfood but in africa is grown by people in africa eating by people that i start to see what america has done with them a green assira like we know what which is more or less breakfast zero before quinoa became like a blockbuster serial in america it had the same profile as phone. You in south america. So what we're beginning to see. Is they celebrate to ship in. New york is named spear pm. He's now taken for neo his packaged. It's not just in its physical formats but in the narrative that used salads and last year. I think it's early this year. It got the national distribution across the united states in whole foods. You know to distribute this kind of food and new just one. I know listeners may be familiar with moringa which is another superfood. it grows in the wild in africa. We really take you for granted over yet. But then we've sent entrepreneurs coming here and repackage it into something that selling like a lot because it resonates resonates with the health and wellness movements the big trend going on in the

All that was done on stage in sweden rooney on the bike that was on stage. In hollywood this is done with led media panels on stelling near where we actually use the plates to lighten him. We had plates of going over the bridge. And everything. And i put them on the media panel screens and actually pushed them. They're hanging on trust just above the a pillar of the car pushing into giving him that at basically they're surrounding the car with all the plates out we'll balance the light you know. I had a whole computer full of quick time movies that day. I'm trying to find the right place and put them on the right side of the wall and so what you're talking about for people that don't know. This is a recorded video of like an exterior flying. By like as if like if you look out that window you have you have. The led walls are projections of the kind of things flying by. Yeah actually outside. There's blue screen And then the plate. That's going to be there on the led media panel just about the back window pushing light from the trees and the bridge lights that they so we had it mapped out so that when the light would come to the front of the car. You know the plate if the video would run front to back so and today. We're doing it where you know basically what is sorry Basically now you can shoot a in a virtual environment Like the war in style or you go into led room basically and you already have your plates and you can get the reflections and everything and you're seeing it in real time. You're not a light will actually bounce the if you move the camera. The walls actually changed right. Yeah they they are using a gaming engine for the mandatory and setup To actually track track walls behind them when the camera moves.

This is actually blue screen and then you do actually have some projections of kind of walls and things like that. That are moving outside. He's driving what he's actually on a stage. Basically it's panels. You would use in a video wall but back then they were. You know less resolution. But we put those behind a little bit of hampshire cross or a little bit of opel cross and then that provides the real light and also it puts reflections especially in the daytime stuff like on the chrome on the interior of the car You can see the actual reflections of the trees and the things going by the background and it makes for a much more realistic poor man.

A Crystal Layout for Intuitive Guidance
"And now it's time to dive into our main topic for today, a crystal layout recipe for intuitive guidance. So I wanNA talk a little bit about crystal layouts here. This is basically the art of placing crystals and stones on and around your physical body to create a shift in your energy field. Now, crystal layouts often follow geometric patterns similar to grids but. Instead of gritting a space or having a small grid on a table, top layout is almost like a grid for your body but they can also be done intuitively, and in fact, more artistically and they can just kind of be placed anywhere and they don't necessarily have to follow any certain geometry, your patterns, they really more follow the energy flow in the body. But what's most important here is that the overall purpose of a layout is to direct the flow of energy from the universe into the stones into your person to shift the energy in your body mind spirit and ultimately in your life. Crystals can really work wonders to help you open up to receiving your intuitive guidance and messages from Your Spirit guides and angels, and in fact, this is something that we've talked about on a few previous episodes the crystals in this simple layout that I'm about to share with you help open your third eye, Chakra and facilitate connection with the divine. These can also help assist you in tapping into your psychic gifts and aid you in learning to trust your own intuitive guidance. This is where a lot of us get hung up our intuitions there. It's giving US information but are conscious mind talks out of trusting it. So, this crystal layout recipes a really excellent starting point for your work but I wanna see an important thing here. There's no substitute for you following your own intuition and inner guidance when it comes to working with your stones. So it's really important for you to start trusting your instincts and begin to develop your own style of healing crystals. So incorporating that kind of freedom into this work, you might feel called to change the order that the stones are store make substitutes for some of the crystals used or even move the placement of these crystals and. Time, you'll start to feel more comfortable with these changes as you learn to trust your guidance when it comes to your crystal healing work. But if you want follow this recipe, exactly that's okay too like I said, it's a great starting point. So to begin this layout, we're going to start by opening the third eye. So you're going to begin by placing an amethyst crystal over your brow at your third eye Chaka. This could be at tumbled stone could be a terminated point. It's totally up to you. If you are using terminated crystal I would recommend that point upward toward your crown. So. Ama- this, really opens you to your intuitive guidance. Especially, if you've been closed off to your gifts or if you have trouble trusting your insights and if you don't have an amethyst crystal to work with some great substitutes would be things like Charles White Purple Opel or amateur in. Next, you're going to place a diamond, which is a special type of double terminated quartz crystal that comes from county new. York above the Amethyst tone closer to your hair in line so that the points of this crystal are parallel with your spine. So going up and down double terminated means, there's a point at each end of the crystal seal have one. Point going up toward your, Crown Chakra and one going down toward the amethyst crystal. Now, some good substitutes for her Komo diamonds would be clear courts. Again, you can use the tumbled stone. If you're using a single terminated point, I would recommend putting the point facing up towards your Crown Talk Rub. You might also want to try something like Rainbow Moonstone or clear Now. After you've kind of opened your third eye activated your intuition, you're going to take a step further and start to really connect with your guides or your angels. So you can place a small angel lightstone over your throat. Chakra and the reason that I recommend a small stone here as our are very sensitive. So by placing a smaller stones, something that's not too heavy, it's not so noticeable in it's a little bit more comfortable during the layout. This crystal facilitates communication with your spirit guides and your angels. So after you place your Angel Lightstone, you may want to invite in your guides or angels into the space so that they can share their wisdom and knowledge with you give you any kind of guidance that you may need in your life right now, if you do have a specific question to ask you can ask at once you feel the presence of your guides in the space now. If you don't have angel, some good substitutes for this stone are things like Blue Lace Agate, blue cal site or blue calcium. So you can stay in the layout for as long as you like and when you do finally feel ready, just take a few deep brats, wiggle your fingers and your toes and come back to the present moment. Then you can slowly remove the crystals and the opposite order they were pleased to bring that energy back down. Slowly re ground your body and then take some time to journal about your experiences think about what you felt in your physical body, how you felt emotionally, and if you were able to connect with your angels or your guides and what messages they had to share with you on
Fearless grandmothers stand up for young climate activists
"Climate activists have attracted national attention, but in the San Francisco Bay Area A group of older women sometimes joins them on the front lines. They call themselves the Society of fearless grandmothers and founder Penny Opel. Plant says their job is to make sure that young people stay safe. Older women have a special role in these non violent direct actions and marches. We're not afraid to put ourselves between law enforcement, and all of the younger people behind us. For example before the thousand eighteen global climate action summit, the grams block streets while protesters painted a giant mural depicting a range of climate solutions, and it is very effective because law enforcement are always a little bit surprised at seeing grandmothers, blockading streets and our police liaisons were all trained in how to talk to them in a good way in a elder respected kind loving way, she says the women feel passionate about addressing climate change and creating a safer world for their grandchildren. We have to do everything we can to protect future generations in the entire system of
How Did Juneteenth Get Started?
"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras. I haven't dreamed as large as the Rose Bowl or the macy's parade, but I'm getting there. To those who observed June eighteenth despite its shaky beginnings, and it's still unfulfilled pledge the day still holds the promise of freedom, independence, equality, ideas, and ideals always celebrating.

Jackie Aina: From U.S. Army Vet to Beauty Influencer
"I've been running into this woman. Unread carpets for the past two years and I've been begging her to come on justice sip because she's got one of the most interesting stories. You guys please welcome beauty influence extraordinaire. She is the Serena Williams of the beat. Jackie I now I got Jackie Jackie. Hey Jackie Jacob Jacob could take a Juki. Check your jacket. J. T. How's everybody yes to your first just to say. Yeah. I know I'm excited. I'm interested in you because you came up on my radar a few times in the beauty industry doubling in a good way in a very good way. But I have to say you. Beauty bought bloggers got more drama than a real housewives of Atlanta episode. Are you kidding me like it's? I don't know why why it's been like that like I feel like it's progressively got crazier and crazier in the past four years. And I don't know I don't know what the catalyst that I was. But you're shook we're in this and we're so too but I'm shook because I it's not like you just having this spat on mine. It's in Glamour magazine. It's on the Newark. Graham says see massing but what happens when you guys to be honest because I always say like on the beauty influences situation. Grandmother is of the island descent. So like would we see somebody who's got the energy online when we see you and we want to do they never pull up. What what is it like when you see these people like in? It's like nothing because they're not about that life so I'm here and you're there and we're clink clink and I'm waiting okay. That's what I thought. I have more champagne thank you yes yes no. I mean I love very and you know also like I'm thirty two so for Youtube. I know this is going to sound very dramatic but for Youtube. That's like a little older. Yes so a lot of the people who are like considered my peers like ten sometimes even fifteen years younger than me. So let's talk it out. Let's you know if there's an issue that's the small issues I've had with fellow other influencers and every time I've tried to like be the bigger person and talk about those things. It's just the my okay so this was just like not really what it was like the cloud in the PR. Sometimes people do sometimes. People really are like attention obsessed and I feel like we see that Nachos with beauty like we see that with like even like talk. I'm like hall like these. Take these tweets Algebra book. Like what time is it like in school or something but yeah a lot of people and I feel like that's just? The wave of social media in general is that people just love the attention. That's why they're there and you know people say things sometimes just for the reaction I I swear I feel like some people like to be cancelled. But how long did it take you to realize this because you're even in the beauty space ten years eleven? Technically this eleven years. How long did it take you to realize that people just want that attention? So they'll come for you. Go try to beat you into that. I mean I would say the first time I ever had like any somewhat spats with anyone was probably like not really until recently like three or four years ago and you know you just it just becomes a like you said what you said. I said what I said. I'm not going to engage. You know I'm not going to egg it on. I'M NOT GONNA further encourage it and also I think it just depends on the magnitude of like what's happening so there's things where it's like. Oh I didn't like that video whatever like mocking and then there's bigger things where like if you say something about me that affects like not just me but like people in my community. Yes and I'm going to speak up and it's not gonna be like a Opel. It's going to be like a well. Let's actually talk about. Let's breakdown let's break this down. And make this teachable. You know what I mean before we get there because that is a big part of your platform is that you gotta take. It is that you speak up for people of Color in the beauty of logging industry. Because there's not a lot of you. Yeah there's not a lot of black women. How is that possible because the prize be surprised? I feel like the biggest hurdle that I had had to overcome with my growth was. Youtube is very visual. So when you're on online and you're scrolling through four page looking at people's thumbnails subconsciously when people see a black girl or a black guy we're talking about like four or five years ago. It's gotten a lot better. And people got an open more now but like back then it was like oh she doesn't really look like me. So why would I watch that video where I would get like comments from some of my followers and they would be like non black people and they would be like yeah? My friends are always like why? Do you watch that black girl on Youtube like she doesn't look like you think about how that translates offline as well like do you have non black friends in your social circles. Do you engage with black people in your everyday encounters at work so and people really think like that whereas I feel like I don't know if it's just like a culturally like a black people thing but like we tend to engage with everyone because we're open to it but sometimes it's not always reciprocated. Millie and and so literally translates onto YouTube. And that a lot of people who look like me have my complexion on the darker side. They are people are looking at them now and its beauty so everything is visual with being right so they WANNA learn how to apply a foundation but they think they have to literally watch someone who looks exactly like them doing it but not necessarily not necessarily. Because I mean if I'm teaching got a contour like if you already know the colors you're gonNA use. I'm teaching the technique you know what I mean. You're watching me from my personality. You're watching me for the technique if I'm reviewing a new skin care product. Why does it matter? If I'm black away it doesn't really matter. They're not I mean now. Of course I understand to some extent you WANNA watch someone who looks like you. You WanNa Watch someone who relates to you. But that shouldn't be the only you know the only barometer for like enjoying some content thing or two about your eyebrows but by the way y'all still live from US anyway for. Oh yeah yeah floors the blogger. Yeah which makes it like kind of even a double edged sword because it's like black women are literally like one of the most copied and emulated people on the planet. Yes but they don't want to consume that constant from us they wanna consume it from someone else. Who's sure you would rather go to see it. The girl learn it from me instead of. Just come into the master himself like why would you go to Daniel? Signed with? Mr Miyagi is sitting right here. That's how people think it's crazy but who do you think three million people tune in to your Youtube Channel? Because obviously you've broken the mold. You've obviously fought through the race situation. How did you finally get to that? Which is still present though like I still get it all the time even at three point two million seriously like you'd be surprised like I still give comments on my videos and they're like why do you raise and it's like dude. I've been here eleven years like are you getting the like change can change. It is what it is like. This is what's authentic to me and I credit much of that because it's consistency thing so it's always been something that I talk about so it's always something that people have had a chance to. You know like at writing or it's not surprising. I laid allow I have those conversations like when I hit a million when I hit a million youtube there was literally no one darker than Tan. That had ever done that before. And Youtube. And the beauty world others honor them comedy gaming. They're different but on the beauty world. Huntingdale was many this was. I think I got a million late. Two Thousand Sixteen. That is so embarrassing. That in two thousand six hundred twenty sixteen there was no one darker than Tan. That's crazy in the beauty space that had hit over a million subscribers. That's insane I know but it happens because a lot of people are just you know just so closed off to like what they could open like. They just weren't open minded. It's very simple. They weren't open minded and like I all. I had those conversations. I put it out benefit why you know Darker Tan over. It's weird and like a lot of people were like. Yeah I never thought I never noticed that. And it's like let's talk about. Why have you found that? In the last four years darker people have follies Alma Tricia. Bright Grass is like well over three million. Now Nima -taying hit over a million like there are so many women that Shalom I think yeah. I think she hit a million as well. My fellow Nigerian sister. She'll black the Nigerians do not around lay amp peak mill. Hit over million to. She does more like hair and beauty and stuff like that so you open the door. I mean like to me. It wasn't about like of course like who doesn't want to be the first. The first is epic sad that you were the first exactly exactly and to be completely honest with you. I remember the first time I ever talked about this video. What I said was like honestly even if it wasn't like I just need to see that it's possible. Yes like some black women just needs to see that it can be done. And if they aren't seeing it they're not going to believe in themselves they're not gonNa have that inner motivation because it's passed how it's because it isn't because history has shown us that isn't because media is showing us that it isn't because the mainstream you know what's mainstream showing us that it isn't so if we don't get an example. Then how are we going to break down my barrier ourselves? No one hundred percent but I also wonder. 'cause I like to play devil's advocate and also like to wonder though Because you've been so outspoken. About having people of Color and darker skin tones with beauty brands with big lines with big retailers. Like that's been your mission and you have been stake standing firm on that line. Do you feel like you've lost money in las opportunities because people don't want to go with the easier option absolutely now. I don't feel like that problem because the doors opened like the conversations are way more like conversation and they also don't WanNa drag. They have to kind of like me that you know. Meet that standard because I love. Social media makes it a requirement now like they don't accept sub par they don't accept not embracing ride complexion ranges. Like they just don't accept that twitter is waiting. Twitter is sweeter black. I'm black and I'm going anywhere nearby. Let me stay on this. I have a love. I have a lovely really because sometimes I'll be like yeah we. They didn't deserve. It was nice not to go to beer literally legs. No when they wake up and they're like we ready to drag somebody. Who are we gonNA drag today on his hand? Witnessing it is bad just like scrolling. They do him pates. Beat them right now. You don't like twitter. Gail black twitter. That was bad. That was bad.

Yes but you can also like Google black twitter and see like there's this and then you get the right ups possible compile. Basically they'll take all the shadiest tweets and do the write ups and it's like Oh has bikes. Whatever you know. I've been come by. I've been come by Stan. Twitter black twitter lake wine twitter. I'm sure there is one I mean at this point i. It doesn't like it just can't get any worse than like what I've already experienced like at this point. It's all the same to me now. I've literally little. I would say pretty pretty much every group that you could think of as competitive and sometimes it's like not even intentional like I'll say something like oh I didn't like this. Oh one time freaking What was I Damn Superhero movie with the? Dan knows where he wears the ring. Oh you're talking about a insurance. I was like yeah.

VW Beetle Part III: From Hitler to Hippies
"Back to the epic conclusion of our three part series on the Volkswagen Beetle. It's been dark road the F. Are you guys a lot of really messed up stuff? But there's a lot of peace in love in the future. Yea here that this episode is about peace and love so I'm looking forward to. We're going to get there. Hey guys welcome to the. Pass Gas podcast. You like passed gas. Please help us grow by giving us a good rating and a nicer view on the podcast platform of your choice to really help us out. I really appreciate it. Thank you all right now for the show. When we last left off the Volkswagen Wolfsburg factory originally meant to Make Carson. People WAS BUILDING WEAPONS OF WAR INSTEAD. Wolfsburg was targeted by the allies and nearly destroyed but the war ended. Hitler was dead. It was time yeah. It was time for the Volkswagen to live up to. Its name is name was the people's car Ooh bye-bye now that the war was over. Germany was faced with the massive task of reconstructing a shattered country including resupplying. The transportation needs for the people after the war. Germany was divided into multiple zones. The British American Soviet and French sectors Wolfsburg was situated within the British sector and the factory was still under the British pocket book in the years after the war it was also under constant threat of being shut down but once the British and American sectors merged it became apparent that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst would be able to secure the necessary funding to keep the factory afloat. The country would once again be allowed to participate within the global free market in nineteen forty seven. Obviously these policies had a direct impact on the Volkswagen factory British officials representing the VW plant had continued to push further permission to export during all of these changes every single one of their requests export though had been denied but now the Germany was allowed to enter the market the VW plant was finally viewed as a way to ease the British expenses and in March of nineteen forty seven. The factory quotas were raised. The People's car would be allowed to be exported outside of Germany but only to the Netherlands Belgium and France. The first official export of the car occurred in August that same year? A massive total of five cars were exported and the process was a difficult. One selling quote. Hitler'S CARS TO COUNTRY. Hitler try to Concord. Seemed kind of absurd but it wasn't Hitler's car anymore. So anything can happen. I think they should should stop calling Hitler's car if they want to sell it. Probably not the best marketing hooked. This is a great car. This was Hitler's car. It was obvious that British Army Engineer Major Ivan. Hirst couldn't run the plant forever. He was a military man and while he loved his position at the plant he had a larger job that took priority but each time they tried to take her out of the factory chaos ensued. He ran a tight ship soon enough. The search for a replacement began but for the volatile plant to return to German hands. It needed someone who had expertise when it came to running a major factory. Former Opel head Heinrich Nordhoff. Remember him from the last episode mentioned him he had been barred from working in the American business sector since he had been given an award from the Nazis. A FEW YEARS PRIOR ON K. Not a good look opal was controlled by GM. And Mr Nordhoff was forced out of his job. Due to America's quote no nonsense policy on Nazi involvement after the war you know other than hiring Nazi scientists to develop bombs and stuff. Yeah and like the entire space program. Yeah let's not talk about. Yeah that's true Operation Paper Clip. Look it up. When it came to looking for a factory manager Nordhoff. He might sense. He was experienced in managing factories and since the VW plant was under British control. He was actually allowed to work there on January. First of nineteen forty eight Heinrich took up position as managing director of the Volkswagen. Plant by recommendation of major hearst upon his arrival to Wolfsburg Nordhoff noted that the factory still looked exactly like it did during the war. It was basically a pile of ruins that could somehow produce cars so he knew he had a lot of work to do. So we got the work while he was meant to report to hearst with each action the roles were kind of reversed. It was obvious that Nord off was the expert and no one complained. Once you took control. The first thing Nordhoff did was replaced all the English signs back to German ones. Oh that's the bathroom is been peeing in jars from meanwhile nineteen forty. Seven was a terrible year for Ferdinand. Porsche he had been moved from his original prison to the Dank Dungeons in dijon into John. That sounds like your APP album named Dude Dank dungeons dungeons. That's pretty good good anyway remember. He had been arrested by the French. Police For colluding with Hitler Hitler. Yeah that guy so at this prison in the in Dijon. They were not even given beds all around him other men involved in the war. We're being sentenced to death in the Nuremberg trials. So at least Porsche was better off than that. After twenty two months Porsche and his family were released from the French prisons and declared not guilty of their crimes as the French government only tried him regarding the forced labor of French prisoners The Porsche Corporation to this day still denies the use of forced labour in their factory. At the time just it's better just to come clean about it. You know. Yeah Yeah I mean there's no way right. There's no way that they didn't. I don't know the rest of his record was sort of six months after his arrival to the Volkswagen Factory Heinrich Nordhoff was still sleeping on the factory. Floor on a flimsy. Kat issues plagued the factory especially the lack of housing but most importantly there wasn't really a local market for the cars. Germany was still dirt poor. And those who have the money to buy car tended to steer clear of the word. Volkswagen makes sense also. The factory was amazingly inefficient. It took workers in a reported three hundred hours to build a single car so nordhoff had to reshuffle the factory line in order to imitate the successful style of the lines in Detroit. Normally that Nordhoff expertise allowed him to play with the budget. A little bit. Nineteen forty-nine was the first year the factory was given a firm quota of forty thousand cars and nord-ost reshuffling allowed the cars to be produced over two hundred dollars under budget nor off also rebuilt the factory. He figured out that having bombed out walls and ceilings. Kinda hurt company around. Yeah I remember when our office got blown up. That was really tough to come to work every day. Yes like where do I plug my charger in? Yeah there's no wall. Where am I snack? All my snacks. So Heinrich had the place tidied up a little bit. Most importantly he completely changed the entire decision making power structure of the factory. Using a general manager who controlled multiple departments head on and so on while that's super commonplace. Now this was revolutionary at this time in German history but ultimately the company was still controlled by the British government and while they remain about as far out of the picture as they could heinrich still had to answer to them in the end.

Ellen Bass Reads Frank X. Gaspar
"My guest today is Ellen Bass a chancellor of the Academy of American poets. She's received a lambda literary award for poetry. The Pablo Neruda Prize for poetry and fellowships from the California Arts Council and the National Endowment for the arts. Welcome Ellen thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for inviting me. I'm delighted to be here so the poem Eve decided to read for us is co hogs by frank x Gaspar. Can you tell us why this particular poll cut your attention. John as you're looking through the archives. I love this song for many reasons. One of them is it's so primal it so visceral. It brings us into one of the most basic human experiences and I feel like I'm having that experience experience when I read the poem. Then I should say just in case people aren't familiar The title is co hogs and Co hogs. If you don't know our large clams excellent Let's hear the poem this is Ellen Bass Reading Co hogs by frank x Gaspar Co Hawks. It was for the wind as much as anything. It was for the tidal flats for the miles of bars and the freezing raising runs between them. Blue and darkened in the withering gusts for the buckets for the longtime friend rakes for our skin burning and the bones beneath all their ache for the bent backs for the huddle toward warmth beneath are incapable incapable layers. How we beat ourselves with our arms the breath we blew the narrow steam that spun away? How we we searched there till drag all marks then the feel of them as we furrowed then it was surgery and forced together like Stones Stones Opel or Pearl or plain rock ugly except they were beautiful their worlds and purple stains pains the Bucket Swire cutting with their weight for the sky? Blazing it's sinking. Orange fire for the skies is black streaks with night rising winter sudden back sure word home the tide creeping like a wolf both for the little stove warming is own orange. Fire the old pot. The steam the air and savor the close room the precious butter. The blue fingers throbbing. Our bodies in all the customs of weariness the supper succulent of the freezing dark. See come up and hunger its own happiness its own domain immeasureable insurable. It was for the hunger that was co hugs by frank x gas bar which originally appeared in the January eleven in two thousand sixteen issue of the magazine. So tell me more about this wonderful poem. I I was thinking when we're reading it in a it's worthy of note that you really capture. I think the rolling quality I mean it feels like one big breath but there's something also for me about poetry in that it's both a palm of of of discovery but also at home about poetry in some way about the making of poetry and ours. POETICA I'm so glad that you said that because the more I was reading being this poem and thinking about talking here. That's exactly on my notes. I wrote down ars POETICA. It does feel exactly like like that process of writing a poem of searching of describing and describing until you come to something thing that you didn't know you're going to come to exactly like that and I love the music of the poem the sound and Frank S bar is a a master of sound and really works through sound move. sapone forward through sound and that wonderful repetition of course of if it was four which is such a strange and wonderful way to start this poem. Right Right You know it was for the wind as as much as anything. What where we're in radiantly immediately in the experience and The way that that repetition just drives the poem forward and has that force of moving through the music of the poem. I love so much and I love I love how primal this poem is. This is something people have been doing for a thousand years more. I don't know how long Colonia exactly and The maury read the poem. The more I think about how. It's a poem without judgment That there's adversity here. They're called and then they're hungry and there's a we in the poem. I'll just stop. He's not doing it alone. Hello I want to get to the we in a moment but came. Yeah so somebody else might think I love doing this. I hate doing this but he is beyond judgment in this poem. It's it's deeply rooted in the world and I think that really works with the ours. POETICA too because that's what we're trying to do in poetry is to get it more or at least what I'm trying to do. Get get more deeply rooted into the experience into the world and see then what we discover cover and it made me think of Galway canals line Whatever what is is is what I want? What and I feel that in this poem that he just wants it all that wonderful line? I love that line about the ugly about as literally what I underline here ugly except beautiful yes worlds and Purple Stains S. Oh and that to me is like so much experience. which we you know poetry were? You're talking a little bit and this poem is a little bit about poetry's four and one thing is to talk talk about that line Often the things that fascinated us sublime rides that line and poetry is able to you of course name things that we might otherwise miss or or dismiss As worthy of note. So what about this. We I mean. Obviously it's all of us but warm but what is there a specific we feel. I mean it's probably his family or he and you know his cohorts but is is a communal way and that feels so primal to you know. I can't imagine that a thousand years ago people didn't do this together So often we don't experience it because we eat alone or in our little Oh boxes or houses or places or wherever if we're fortunate enough to have such but he he's letting you know the the Labor that goes into achieving. What is this kind of brief? Gloria the end our bodies in all the customs of weariness. Yeah I mean that's a great phrase. I Know Supper are sucked out of the freezing Darcy. Come up and I love how once they get into the warm kitchen with the steam and the stove in the close room that the freezing dark see is introduced. It's it's brought into the warm warm and there's so many of these Opposites that are connected you know. There's the steam in the beginning of his breath and then in the end the steam in the room room and then he repeats. That are arranged. Fire you know I. It's the sinking orange fire of the sun going down and then it's the little stove warming its own orange fire so the outside and the inside are so connected in this poem and the part that really makes me think about poetry is when he says then it was surgery and forced together
Oppo Reno 3, Reno 3 Pro launched in China with 12GB RAM, quad cam setup
"I do WanNa get through one big piece of news that just happened and it's kind of exciting because it's a precursor to everything. We probably will be seeing in two thousand twenty. It's Kinda crazy to think about it because we only just recently got to know the Opel Reno Line and now we're already in almost the same year on the third iteration. The Opel Renault three and the Reno three reproach were announced they're going to be made available in China and not to be outdone. Oboe is making sure they're available for twenty twenty by releasing them on December thirty first. It's crazy because I was just covering with high may even the Oboe Reno to while we were in Japan in June and then not too long before that was the over Reno ten times zoom which itself was an exciting phone That we were excited to get and see what the future would hold and now the future is already here. So what are the takeaways from this device. The Reno three and the Reno three pro are both five G.. Ready they have different ships though. And I think that's the part that's really exciting. We're going to end up getting even earlier than we expected. A look at how the seven sixty five G. is going to power power some of the affordable mid range phones of twenty twenty only. It's coming in two thousand nineteen somehow and this is something that I've talked about even on my own channel that the seven sixty five energy is the chip to look out for. It's the one that you want to be looking for in a smartphone because once you see it in the SPEC sheet that phone is probably not going to be over one thousand dollars and to that end up. Oh is making the Reno three line available. All of these phones are under six hundred dollars. If you convert the currency from Chinese ruin of course some of the big specs include four thousand million power batteries. Thirty Watt charging and in the Opel Renault. Three pro You do get ninety. Hertz refresh rate screen with a Hole Punch thirty two megapixel self selfie. Camera the camera on the bag. Let's just take a second to appreciate how this looks and actually is a pretty good looking device because all of the cameras are just in a line nice and needs and which you get there is a regular forty eight megapixel units a thirteen megapixel zoom an ultra wide. Andy Two Mega Pixel Monochrome sensor the monochrome center is making a comeback. That's nice to see so yeah I just wanted to be sure to react to this. A little bit is a great thing that we're going to get a seven sixty five G.. Sooner than we expected and then of course we have to wait for what the eight sixty five is going to be. And that's that's GONNA be coming out of Xiaomi scam with the content. At least that's what they said at the QUALCOMM Texoma not too long ago. which is where we were?
Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot agree to merge in giant auto deal
"Chrysler and Peugeot makers among them dodge ram jeep and Alfa Romeo's well as Peugeot situation an Opel have announced the final terms of their merger. A company were fifty billion in dollars. The number four carmaker buy cars sold in the world which is big. But let's get back to that making money thing shall we the automaking business right now. Now is expensive. You gotTA figure out electric self-driving for starters but car sales are lukewarm and more people are sharing cars. Every day so profits fits marketplace's Mitchell Hartman gets going. Consumer demand for autos is soft from North America to Europe to China. They're global trade tensions since and says Garrett Nelson CF RA research. Automakers are really looking for a way to increase their scale to share the enormous cost associated. Did it with electric and autonomous vehicle. Carmakers now have to make massive investments in research and development and engineers says Carla Baillaud at the Center for Automotive Research to produce for both the current and future market an internal combustion engine many times hybrid and now many any customers are demanding a pure electric. Then there's the vehicle of the future is brain. The software says Ned Hill at the Ohio Manufacturing Institute. A two and that's the autonomous driving systems. There's no vehicle brand the wants to give all that money to Google or apple and in the future. A lot of people may not even buy cars Carla. Bela says the whole industry is moving toward usership rather than ownership with fleets of electric an in autonomous vehicles shared. Or least I think nobody knows right now. Really if they're gonNA be profitable with these new business models we certainly haven't seen many of the Guarda be profitable yet. There is one potential bright spot with this shift to to non fossil fuel combustion engines and non human driver's says David did wisden at Morningstar. I do think there's potential for better margins at least for the firms that survive in the New Paradigm on electric vehicle has a lot fewer parts arch meaning the cost of materials and labor.

Fiat Chrysler finds new merger partner in Carlos Tavares
"French carmaker. PSA which owns Pirjo and Fiat Chrysler. Automobiles it's Italian American rival have agreed to pursue a merger that would create the world's fourth largest carmaker and reshape the ultimate of sector. I'm here with a motor industry correspondent Peter Campbell. And we're joined down the line by David Kayhan in Paris to discuss the merger. Hi Guys Peter Tell us first why these super super mergers have been considered at the moment. What's the rationale behind them earn? What's the most notable recent mergers in the sector so call makers of facing stresses from a lot of a different direction at the moment? They're facing falling sales in the facing the need to invest in some quite expensive new technologies electric cars. They need to sell to the C O talks across Europe and China as well as driverless vehicles and other such technologies that looking at now. What are these things cost money? And it makes very little sense for all of the world's carmakers call makers independently to spend the billions and billions that they need to develop this technology. It's much more sensible for them to tie up. A great proponent of this theory was Sergio Marconi the late former chief executive of fit cruiser who oversaw the merger between Fiat and Chrysler itself. WHO said the comic is need to tie up in order to avoid duplication teaching the list massive spending that they have to make? It's just too much cash. They need to splash right. So what are the relative strengths of the Fiat group. Compared to pressure so both companies are incredibly complementary geographically Peugeot exists almost entirely in Europe asam stuff outside Europe. But it's very very strong strong in Europe. Fat Chrysler despite being called fat is in fact predominantly in North America organization. Almost all of its profits. Come from selling pick-up trucks and very large. SUV's in the North North American region. It owns the ram heavy truck brand it ends jeep globally Lens Africa and Maserati and so for these companies they complement each other geographically and and what PSA has shown with its takeover of Opal which owns Fox hole in the last few years is that this is a company that can manage scale in European mass mass manufacturing so it already owns a number of volume brands in Europe. It audience Persian and sit. Trinidad's open phones Vauxhall. You would add to that fat if this merger went ahead head. And they've already showed that they can make these efficiencies of scale work within a single region within Europe which would be an advantage but PSA really although it's had an incredible Rana that's very profitable. Its growth is sort of come to an end really needs to try and push into North America which has plans to do unto its own steam and it really needs a serious premium. AM nameplate a merger with fair crews which is very strong in North America and has offer may a massive rati and jeep brings that I say so David John Elkin. WHO's the one of Italy's Agnelli families? The Italian billionaire behind axle which controls Fiat Chrysler and also the brains behind the proposed merger but his his attempt to do a similar deal with Renault early. This year failed at this plenty of examples of failure here. What happened there? Why did I go wrong? Defensive Him you ask really. FCA In parallel talks with Reynaud and Persia for quite a while but particularly since the start of the year. What people have told us that the whole time? They're in these as talks. They actually wanted runner. That was number one target. But I didn't know that so Iran may the news was given to the profoundly particular and generally that they were going to go over a nice over a good the only problem from. Sei's point of view. Is that across the table from the Reynolds argest shareholder was the French state. You might know that Renos found itself in a particular situation with its Japanese partner Nissan. And what the French state said was at Notre for the merger to go ahead. They wanted the explicit it consent agreement approval of Japan. They walked away. It was like ten days. The whole thing collapsed. It was a drama France. Tickets blamed by some sides if you took the French state on background they say maybe the deal wasn't as good for Renos. It could have been directing normal shareholder but either way John alcon sure. The French date didn't like what it was doing walked away dramatically and that leads us to PSA so would perjures Kosta virus preach batter partner. Do you think it depends. I mean I would cautiously say yes. Tavarez is a big personality big. Co elkhound is buying in is a guy who's not. It's going to take a backseat in any way he's going to be a CEO in charge driving strategy and Alcon will be classic chairman. You'd imagine it's kind of return to demark relationship. He had before maybe it was something. We didn't think he was totally on board. With an part of the reason he went Reynaud but where the project is definitely at nicer fit for FCA. Is that the French state is far less hands on this company. It has a shareholding but in Reynaud you could say that the French state is more like a family company shareholders. Huge emotional ties. It's the largest shareholder as well in Persia. It's a much more traditional shareholder it doesn't lockinge stakes. It's the joints are shareholder shareholder with both the Persian family and China's Dongfang. So you can see why it might be a better partner. Yes so notice. That are lex pages. Describe cried Mr Tavarez's quadri-lingual what kind of big personality is he. What kind of figure does he cut in the car? Industry globally so taveras is renowned and as one of the most capable executives across the automotive industry. If you look at his track record is performance. He came into Persia when they will almost bankrupt. He oversaw sore huge turnaround at the company then bought Opel. This was a company that General Motors couldn't make money out of twenty years. They turned that around in very short order and yet at the same time he doesn't have the gigantic room. Filling ego of some of the other executives in the auto industry would be more akin to traveling head of state when they it went overseas. Savar as who is a cost cutter to the core when he comes to the UK to visit the Vauxhall plant at Luton flies into Luton on EasyJet buys is is sandwiches in the corner shop before getting in a taxi to go over to the plant in his better than eight. Uneasy gentleman with US possibly explanation. But it's also true that he really has a way a of identifying with the ground level workforce as well as the executives and saying guys. You are the team here is up to you to deliver this turnaround plan has to go ahead. And he's been quite good actually particularly in the Opel turnaround of avoiding plant closures. No everybody thought when he bought Opel there we're going to have to shut factories and he said we're going to do this plan without shutting factories and they brought he managed that and what we expect from the FCA deal if it goes ahead. Is that going to make a commitment not to close any of either. I accompanies plants as a result of the turnaround as a result of trying to make savings here and so two Varas is seen. At least at the highest levels of most capable automative executives that gives at the moment and by some people is ranked the best glibly anywhere interesting David. How's he viewed inside of corporate France? If you like with a problem we have a terrorist journalist. This is not enough that stuff to say about him. It's genuine issue now. He's considered in France and piracy to be one of the best. I mean one of the reasons. The French government are supporting. This is because Tabarez is there. He's seen as being a safe pair of hands he sees having done a really great trainer ended Persia and he's seen as someone that they can trust in putting together this merger that's right but he has this cultural index territory. The allows him to associate with work in different countries so when he bought Opel everyone was naturally worried Opel. They were about to get fired but he walks into the headquarters Opel in Germany. All the stuff of April assembled there and his opening lines to the Marin German now he doesn't speak German but he'd learned some opening lines in German and was greeted with a big round of applause but also with the sense in the room that this was a guy who was on their side. It makes a big difference right okay. Personalities a site. Let's let's talk about some of the numbers here. What are the terms of the proposed? David I mean where would the merge creeped based for start. Well that's a very good question when that we don't really know the answer to yet. The idea is multiple As it stands but just very quickly so it's a fifty fifty all stock merger and there's going to be a special dividends and payouts. Either side equalized equalized values but analysts are suggesting that this looks like PSA buying FCA and part of the reason you can say that is the construction of the board Komo correct. He has eleven people five each plus Tavarez so the governance is tilted towards Paris. We will be watching to see where the operation headquarters is really eighty based where Tavarez sits even if I think Peter you might jump in here as well. FCA They're used to bring multiple countries in a way that maybe we'll create tensions. Well this brings us very nicely into the cultures of both companies to. FCA was a company that was borne out of this merger between Fiat and Chrysler and as such as a headquarters in London but but a major office insurance and a major office in Auburn Hills. Chrysler is based and whereas many car companies are deeply rooted in the national culture. These guys genuinely feel we'll multinational and they genuinely feel more global and they've actually culturally made a merger work which historically the consciousness quite difficult to do right. We saw DaimlerChrysler the fall apart we saw Ford Not Really Gel with any of the premium brands. It owned Volvo Janke Arrest Martin etc and at the same time you've got. PSA which also is culturally in quite an international fit because it has a British Brandon Vauxhall at has a German Brandon Opel and again it's made an automotive merger work in recent history and so one of the biggest barriers to auto mergers is cultural and it always is and it's the factions between different rival governments wanting a place at the table and to the fact that you've got to companies that are sort little mood globally cultural and have recently made big complex multi-country images work does bode quite well for these. Two companies being able to culturally fit together. which is a huge hurdle and obviously not a financial one but a key one that really needs to be overcome for any automotive motor to work now to think that assuming this goes through? Do you think there will be cost-cutting. This time we've spoken about how Mr Tavarez avoided this in the past but do we think an ax will fall this time around. They've talked about Oh savings of three point seven billion euros which they go to try and realize eighty percent of those within the first couple of years of the deal going through now. They haven't broken out exactly where that comes from. They've said it's not going to be plant closures if you look at. PSA during open takeover they managed to save a lot of money by shortening labor hours thousand doing various things around the way they utilize space in the factory floor but a big chunk of savings in a big rationale for the deal in the whole is as we said at the start to avoid duplicating investment it costs so it'll be avoid. Investment cost into electrification and avoided investment costs not just intellectuals -cation autonomy but also inter individual platforms so you built a car on. They'll merge those together they'll get huge potential savings and of purchasing components together all kinds of classic industrial merger synergies. I mean David. Is that message sticking in France. I don't think this merger would have been given the green light or been greeted with such political approval as it has been so far if it hadn't been for guarantees. He's about jobs and I think that's true in Italy as well. I don't think they're going to be closing plants. I just don't think it's politically tenable as Peter says for. They're going to be. Finding the savings is in our D adoption. Those kind of things. So if you're a betting man do you think the magic. We'll go ahead and if it is who then are the biggest rivals to the merged group. Rule the move music safaris overwhelmingly positive. The fact the French government seemed to be behaving better than they did last time older. That's not a terribly high bar bodes well for the whole thing going through now. What we're expecting expecting is it? Within the next sort of two three four weeks we'll get a memorandum of understanding between the two companies that will set out potentially more details about synergies potentially more details about management structure and various other things. Maybe even headquarters details then. Obviously the whole thing has to go to show. Does it both companies who have to approve them is quite difficult to to see them derailing that and then obviously it has to go through various other regulatory huddles. They also have to deal with antitrust issues so this will be the largest carmaker in Europe. It could be bigger than Volkswagen that market share in some countries such as constantly will be very high so they may have issues with that but no one seriously thinks that's going to derail l. the deal so assuming everything goes smoothly you could see it close within say nine months potentially two year. There's always a bit of leeway with these things either side and then obviously they will be the fourth largest in the world behind reminisce. And if you're treating those companies is one that's the whole other but also Volkswagen Toyota and on readiness and those three make ten million cars a year. These guys will make eight and a half million calls year that puts them slightly ahead of General Motors. You make about eight but they will be easily within the global top five for well. This is going to keep busy for the next year or so. Thanks Peter an thanks David thank you wolf listening.

Renault FCA merger set to reshape global car industry
"Fair Chrysler, automobiles, has unveiled a proposed thirty point six billion euro, al-sham measure with Renault that would we shape, the global automative industry, David Atlee discusses, how the jail came about and how it will affect Renos prepares tired with Nissan with Irish masugi and Peter Campbell. Rush tennis about the two men who engineered the deal when did the talk start. And how did the deal come together? Okay. If tickets step back and just imagine that in the last three or four years in the car industry, all the major players were talking to each other. Part of this thesis, was driven by the former CEO, the late CEO of Fiat Chrysler automobiles Sergio Marconi passed away last July, but had written this manifesto called confessions of capital junkie, where he called for consolidation for a number of reasons in the car industry, and he was, in many ways, the chief, confidant of John Elkin who runs the nearly family empire through an investment vehicle called Exor, which is the dominant shareholder and Fiat Chrysler. And so with Mark Janas death Elkin really steps into this role that normally would have been played by any number of special executives brought in by the family over the years to help exercise their interests. But Elkin really stepped into this role and then began taking charge and making a series of moves one. Those moves was to begin conversations with Renault about various things those conversations really took off, when John Dominic scenarist was brought in January to become the Renault chairman, and stabilize the company, which had been going through tumultuous period after the arrest of Carlos gone in Tokyo in November, the meetings between scenario and Alcon took place throughout the spring in Paris, and Turin at their various homes, and then in the last few weeks, what began as talks about cooperation in a broader partnership really shifted into something else, which was a full merger did call us gone have any role in trying to put together such a merger when he was headed. It's run into San Peter and the rest of the team who's been covering the gun fall out reported in March that Nissan had looked at FCA in the past three years in something that was pushed by Goan. It's not clear to what extent he actually wanted to do that. But at the time he was very much more focused on. Combining rhino with Nissan when it became clear that, that deal was not possible to scenario who had replaced gun, the conversations with Elkin really took off, and in centered Elkin found someone who is more mild mannered, who's more classically European traditional very smooth and diplomatic not an ego maniac, not a big character. Which is typically, what defines many of the big auto chief executives Goan would certainly be seen someone who was imperious character. And so in Senator, there was someone who is much easier to deal with. And I think that probably played a major role because Elkins manners is very sort of genteel in European if you want a risk Socratic, and so that dynamic probably helped make this happen. So you could actually save the absence of gone to some extent, maybe even absent Marconi made this deal easier to engineer. So where does that lead us what are the terms on? What will be the balance of power between each side, so it's a fifty fifty stock deal. So the shareholders in Chrysler wife. Fifty percent stake in a new company, which will be a Dutch registered company and Reynaud shareholders will have fifty percent that essentially means that everyone's shareholdings in the two existing companies will be cut in half. So extra will become the most dominant shareholder with about a fifteen percent stake, the French state, and Japan's Nissan which have fifteen percent of Renault. They will have seven and a half percent in the new company and there will be others who have smaller state, but that's largely the three dominant shareholders. That's why John Elkin will become the non executive chairman of the company and at least for the time being is believed that scenario will become the chief executive. But we'll see how that shakes out of the coming years theme what will is still mean for the industry, and can we expect further consolidation. Yeah. I think the message is yes, but the trick is, it's very hard. The industry is beset with big egos with national pride with unions with manufacturing jobs and the core. Thesis behind this is shutting down factories and firing people. So that is a really hard thing to. Swallow layer that in with the fact that you getting some kind of scale through consolidation layer that in with governments that will want to say to try to protect their jobs. And so you have a very difficult dynamic now concurrently to these talks with Reynaud Fiat was talking to pizzo of France. And obviously those talks have fallen apart hoettges looking stilted at the altar a bit. So the question is, what do they do next and Nissan, which at the moment, just looks like a basket case is also left with some questions to ponder upon for the future. But all the major car companies are watching this with great interest at the moment, so he can we then tune to what do we think. With the cost savings, be and will this mean job losses, the Irish alluded to? So the terms set out yesterday were quite clear in the deal. They envisage being able to do this merger without any plump closures now that may sound ambitious, but remember a few years ago, PSA, Persia took over opo and said they would have a turnaround program and integration program, evolve, no plunk closures and brutally. They haven't closed any plants, so. Oh, it's certainly possible to do that. FCA talked about possible cost savings of around five billion euros from combining various things such as purchasing an RND with Renna. But what they're most likely it's do is to avoid additional cost. One of the reasons comic is trying to tie up is because so many of them have such massive investment costs in future technology, think about something like electric vehicles, something like driverless, technology, and Sergia, Makia, knees, onset to or this was, it's much better for comic is to pool resources and spend this money together, rather than old, Joop locating their investment. And so what this does mean is that FCA and Reynaud, if they come together, we'll only have to spend one load of money on developing electric vehicles, rather than say, two now Renos already the European leader in electric vehicles as the biggest selling electric model in Europe and fit Kryza is generally regarded as a lag Auden electric technology and say, we'll hopefully be able to take in some of Renos electric technology. So they'll be looking for cost savings in various areas such as that. And how much will this merger weaken Nissen's bizarre? Mission within the alliance with Renault currently the way that the alliance is set up is that Reynaud Misawa each have equal representation on the alliance operating board says two seats for Japan. That's Nissim officially in two seats for froms. That's the Reynaud CEO and the Reynaud champion his John, Giannis Sonat, and what this will undoubtedly mean. We don't know what this will mean for the aligns board but is almost certainly going to mean that FCA has a seat at that table. It means that Nissan's influence in overall terms will decrease across the alliance, but actually, the view is that Nissan may perceive parts of this deal is incredibly positive for them, one of the conditions the FCC set during these talks with Renna was the any plans to merge renaissance should be shelved for the time being in order to let Nissen and to some extent, Renos wealth focus on they call business because Nissan's core businesses. Not in great shape seeing a huge slide in it sales in the US as saying fools in China. It's really struggling in some of its logo operations and a lot. Of the phone out of the Costco, no arrest and the questions over the future of the alliance and all the shenanigans about would they merge? Would they not merge has been distracting missiles, management, and frankly, Renos management, as well from the day-to-day operations of the business? So the hope is that by putting that issue to bed for the time being it will allow listen to focus on that day today or perations and not sexy is one thing that's been put in that to try and win over Nishantha supporting this deal in short, then that could be benefits finish San in this new alliance with key be so the long term, what if CA is open to doing is having a full on merger with miss sandwich would create by a very long way the world's largest car company with around fifteen million sales, and that would give them huge scale and therefore numerous potential to invest in a lot of the new future technology a much greater resilience in a very cyclical bumpy industry to be able to weather the storms now. That's more long term in the short term suddenly what Nissim would hope is that it just takes the potential of emerge Reynaud off the table. It lets them focus on the business. Which is something they need to do in order to be able to remain competitive in the future turning to another very important stakeholder in this how have investors responded? What has their view been safe, all say, if you look at the Shatt prices the shaft prices of FCA anniversary both rose incredibly strongly yesterday on Monday when the deal was announced, both rose more than ten percent, investors. See this broadly as positive, but there are lots of questions over the Deel. There were lots of questions over whether call makers need to have global scale, which this will give the companies or whether it's better to focus on getting scale instead of half an individual regions like someone like Persia has done with the OPEL deal because what this won't give Reynaud or FCA is much greater scale in any given regions. They have a bit of overlap in Europe, the market, share, at the end of this deal will be about sixteen percent in Europe. So it increases this state bat. But in terms of that Sharon other markets, there wasn't a great deal of overlap, so they won't be the biggest player in major global markets. They operate in. And so there's a. Question about whether they really need regional scale, or whether they need global scale, lots of other questions around merges, and particularly auto mergers that cross borders in general around company, coaches, we've seen a lot of mergers, in the past the famous one is diamond Chrysler go on for a few years, and then just collapsed because they don't work. That's almost never because of industrial issues political issues. It's almost always because of deeply ingrained, cultural issues, car companies are very cultural animals often rooted in the country, that, that headquartered in and say trying to put together a company that has not just a talion in US culture from fat Chrysler, but French culture from rhino, and ultimately, possibly Japanese culture from Nissen as quite a melting pot. If you're trying to put it all together, so there are two questions over this deal. You've mentioned some, but do you see any particular hurdles, is it the cultural is it the regulation is the politics that could prevent this top, the biggest one of the moment is whether Reynaud agrees to it. So while Reynolds, Chavan, John Donnie Senate has. Been in talks with Alcon for a long time over this and in recent weeks about the merger and FCA has put this proposal to Reynaud Renos still has to agree to it. The French state her fifteen percent of Reynaud behalf double voting rights. Still have to agree to it. Nissan, even though they don't have a blocking vote on this still need to agree. You have the Italian government saying that it wants to protect talion jobs. The French government won't to protect French jobs is going to be very political. We still don't know what the locations of this deal are for the specifics of Renos relationship with Nissen, particularly if it'll affect some of their past contracts together. And so there are a lot of things that could potentially derailed the deal. So it's not a slam dunk by any measure, but the language of FCA and the fact that they're leaders of work closely with Renos leaders over the last few weeks to nail this down. Does at least suggest that there is goodwill on both sides, and both of them it is in their interest to do this deal to make it work.

Well, first of all I would like to say that the turnaround of OPEL is to the credit and to the merits of OPEL employees and their CEO Michael was doing a great job sometimes a very adverse environment.

I mean, like I at that point what it was I pinged Aaron Harris at why on Nater, and I was like, hey, look at all this crazy stuff that's happening using this toy up that we built in. So he's like, oh, this is amazing. Partner Aaron doesn't sound like that. So so like, okay like commented interviewed for XYZ batch. I mean, we applied. Connection to Aaron we got rejected by Wycombe meter four times for why I think look I don't think that articularly from a semantic point of view, great with ecommerce businesses. Like, I don't have a great track record of those. I think generally speaking in around time that we apply ecommerce and since we're getting funded in in. So I think that's what it was. But we wishfully when we do I see. We started with ten thousand active users like the next time. It was like two hundred fifty thousand five the time after that was four hundred thousand of us that notably a million, but every single time. I mean, we interviewed three times we got jetting fun. In like, okay. Well, I mean, I don't know what I can do that. Like get you on this would cover actively. We aren't why commoner with prototype. Right. Like, we didn't have a business like we didn't have revenue we had a we had a concept, and we had an underlying business model that made sense, right? Mike at the time the bid his model was people taking pictures were now going to be like a broker find insurance company to roll it was even used even further up the funnel that when we were. We were just trying to prove the size of the top of funnel. And so it was we act Allegiant business who are selling leads. Right. And then we've quickly realized that, hey, most brokerages are terrible..
"opel" Discussed on TechStuff
"Really compelling story, or it's a more general podcast that covers topics like technology, or if it's a comedy podcast is just really made to make people laugh, we're in a real golden age of content right now. There's way too much out there right now for anyone to listen to all of it. But I'm still hoping that twenty nineteen. We'll bring with it. Some amazing shows with different voices telling important or ner -taining stories or that some of those podcasts that are already out there and are already amazing, but are largely unknown. I hope they can rise up to the surface. So that more people can discover them, I still really love listening to podcasts. I as a podcast or who does this all the time? I still think it's one of the most entertaining forms of connecting with people. So I definitely want more of those as for things I'm not wishing for in twenty nineteen. I'm not wishing for flying cars, an OPEL are still working on that. But honestly, we are still dealing with trying to get terrestrial autonomous cars working. I can't even imagine. What happens when we get the flying cars in there? Now in some ways flying can actually be easier for automated systems, particularly when you're at a high enough altitude where there are very few potential obstacles. But once you talk about a vehicle that. Should be able to operate both on the ground level. And in the air above say, a city, you encounter, some really difficult problems that we absolutely have to solve before we can safely roll out so to speak so ambitious a technology. I don't necessarily think flying cars will never be a thing. But I think we just need to kind of put that on the back burner for like a decade or so to make sure we've got the biggest challenges sorted out. I'm also not wishing for more marketing speech or on the concept of digital transformation. That is you know, I can get behind the idea generally speaking, it's jests that we leverage technology, particularly digital technologies to do work and solve problems. It sort of an extension of the old paperless office concept in which computers would remove the need for us to have all those darn paper files and everything, but the marketing around this concept tends to be very shallow. It tends to be. Let's throw technology at the problem, and that will fix everything which I don't. Think is ever really true. I've seen businesses organizations and schools jump on this kind of idea because it almost seems like it's a shortcut to success. Right. That oh if we just throw computers at it things will be better. But it's not just the technology that makes things better. It's the application of technology. That's really important not not the acquisition of tech. But the way you will apply it, so I'd like to see more attention devoted to implementing technology purposefully and thoughtfully rather than just let's get the the newest toys that are out there and give them to everybody that doesn't necessarily fix everything. In fact, at least in the short term, it can make things worse. Everyone just tries to figure out how the darn thing works. And I don't think we're gonna see any enormous leaps in a I in twenty nineteen. We'll see improvement obviously that will continue. We'll see innovation. We'll see interesting ways in which people are going to apply, but don't think we're gonna get the world's first self-aware conscious machinery thing like that. But this is a wishlist not our predictions list. So my wishlist is if we do get some sort of self aware self conscious machine, which by the way, I think is almost impossible. But if we do get it, my wishes that is a genuinely helpful construct, and that will admit our ability to learn and to grow as people. I would absolutely love Ray, I'd to become better human beings. That would be my my wish. And I know that's a huge wish on top of the possibility of this AI, even existing to make it a benevolent one that makes us better people. That's a huge huge thing. It's not even close. To being listed. Why the more likely scenarios in the wake of a sophisticated artificial intelligence emerging? But we are talking about wishes here. But about you guys what do you wish for in twenty nineteen?.
