Yesterday's dini whose professional physics at amazon is taking versity. One of the primary of usage focus is new leaders. Welcome to see you thank you. Yeah thanks for doing this. So i know that you have done a lot of work on neutrinos. You have a few papers. That came out recently. And i want to talk to a twenty eighteen paper dalogue and my own neutrino signatures of primordial black holes. invite you say. These studied primordial black holes ph is as sources of massive neutrinos by hawking radiation under the hypothesis that black holes emit nuclear no bass item states be described quantitatively called the pbs evolution and lifetime is affected by the mass and flew munich dialect my own nature of neutrinos before we get the details celia I wanted to get some definitions of folks would know what black court saw a few episodes of black holes Here we're talking about. The pride won't imprac codes owes The these black holes are fall close to the big bang And then as caulking radiation Sort of The black hole evaporating So to speak and that That lady Imitating these particles called neutrinos. Right is that. Do i understand that correctly. Yes so so pry bhutia blackhaws before we get the neutrinos what is sort of the mechanism of formation their ho- exactly what they have formed sure We believe that Primordial hose could form in the early universe from density fluctuations so We know that any object could can possibly become a black hole if you compress it into a very very small volume so this same process could happen in the universe with Density fluctuations that could be a regional space where there is an over density compared to the surrounding and each of over the east coast past Then then it could get to the point of becoming a black hole This this The details of this process are beyond my expertise But this is fairly reasonable thing to expect and The diesel really small rate in the scheme of things. Yes so when i started to Learn about time or their black holes. I was amazed by how different in mass can be. They can be may be the massive wouldn't but they can also be The mass of Being or they can be Even even smaller so they can really be very very tiny. Yes oh so. That's really really small so this is sort of quantum fluctuations only universe Kind of getting Getting concentrated in vide- small areas But we believe those. Those primordial black holes emit nucleus. we Have to go back to stephen hawking for that stephen hawking wrote this seminal paper Which is about what we nowadays. Nowadays call hawking radiation so he demonstrated that any black hole regardless of what it is could be primordial black hole or a stellar. Nicole doesn't matter any black hole isn't really black because it meets radiations so radiation particles And the the process that we call evaporation so Because a black holes fundamentally gravity objects they would meet any particle that couples to raggedy including trees so It's the moment you have a black hole you do. Have hawking radiation and neutrinos are just that are expected. Part of hawking radiation. You're so caulking radiation so that that happens to every black hole even the even the supermassive ones right so i it said gentle phenomenon And so going to neutrinos now Don't typically thing neutrino site Caltrans and electrons are really well known. neutrinos are particles. Dad don't interact with The matter Espionage don't interact much with matters. We don't really see them. They don't really see them. And and so it's difficult to measure that's right and so so this could you give a. What does the history of neutrino vendor we. I understand such things existed. Let's see We go back to the twentieth century and the story goes That the father of neutrino sees Warfare he. He made the hypotheses of a new particle existing as a way to explain Some strange behavior of neutrinos produced by by nuclear decay so It's it's a long story but Let me just say that For a long time. Neutrinos who just the hypotheses and then around the mead of this twentieth century They would actually officer so we started to Know that this particles existed and But that was pretty much heat. So we didn't know much about the properties And one of these properties the mass which we still don't know i'm easy after all these decades but we still don't know if neutrinos have something like a magnetic went for example And something that we didn't learn until much later on is the fact. That neutrinos oscillate. That's that that sounds. That's something that we that were somehow established Turn of the sanctuary around the around the year. Two thousand really after after decades of of testing with the solar neutrino selling trainers. So there are still there are still a number of no on your trainers. One of them is the mass one and the other one is the The nature of the neutrinos being the iraq particles or miranda particles we She's kind of a fundamental cost. So there are that. That's that's that's related to the fundamental nature of the neutrino as particle break. So so they do. They have a mass but masses small. Do they have a chunk. Neutrinos don't have charge so they are electrically neutral and that's Comedy the biggest reason for for them to be a so allusive as you were mentioning earlier on especially in the in early. Nineteen hundreds all the particle detectors so basically a electro-magnetic detectors they were looking for charge or Magnetic behavioral some sort. So neutrinos don't have that and so they They only have the weak interaction At that that we know wolf and gravity of course and so that's why they They escape detection so so easily because their interaction is very weak. Yeah so so. That's sort of the beauty of neutrinos right so because they don't interact V can go back digits of years. Simple hats Perhaps become pickup one on earth and it would have travelled that distance through all sorts of things but would not have affected wider rate right. Yes and so so the other phenomenon of neutrino is that you mentioned that they also late so are they're failures of tinos they go back and forth. Yes it's It's actually a fairly Easy to this cried kwan to sonam on We know that In quantum mechanics there is this Particles described by these function which is called the wave function. And so the neutrinos could be on. Neutrino could be born as a say an extra and then it's quanta way function would evolve over time in a way that after sometime. The wave function is no longer a purely electron neutrino way function. But the has a little bit or even law actually of a different flavor. It could be a new one or tau. So what we observe in the actors. Is this change of flavor and perhaps the most striking demonstration of this phenomenon is solemn. Neutrinos because we know that the sun produces an extra treatments and It doesn't produce a new on and talion trainers so But here on earth we do Have evidence that the solar neutrino flags that we receive has some You wanna talion. Trina in it and that can only be explained by sedation and Actually after this other neutrino data showed this phenomenon. This was also confirmed by a saint men made experiments so it's a fairly established phenomenon it and so that the flavors are Electron new on tall. Yes that's right and so. Did you understand the vendor made in the sun for example there they are made as electron Neutrinos and by the time they reached the earth day the Immunes dot. Yes yes Impart young. that's that's what happens so ease. It always the case that they get a manufactured so to speak as as electoral neutrinos always. It depends on where they are born. There are places where neutrino sutter born in or flavors. A so it's it's it really varies with With the type of environment We are talking about okay. Okay and so in the people you say ph is this primordial black holes. We talked about radiates right. Handed and left handed dutra knows in equal amounts so anybody right-handed unless the cleaners. Okay let me see so Yes you say. Indicates of dirac neutrinos. pba Left neutrinos in equal amounts possibly increasing deceptive number noon pheno species nest. Yes is that explainable. Yes so right handed than left handed. Neutrinos that may take why to explain what that exactly means me. Just say that It's related to the neutrino mass. So if you're truly knows didn't have a mass which we know they do but if they didn't have a mouse They would only exist as left handed particles which means that basically their spin is Is anti aligned with the momentum and but if they have mass and the iraq particles There could be another type of neutrino which is right handed. Which where the This being ease aligned with a mentor other than anti line and so If you are iraq these these two different species could exist and so instead of having one species of neutrino emitted left-handed one Indicators of a massless trina if we have not suv nutrients than you would have to species and so. The black hole radiate war energy compared to The case when neutrinos don't amass so when we started working on this paper i was interested in this phenomenon that A lot of the literature having to do with a developer. Evaporation of primordial black couls. Consider the neutrinos as massless about. Now we know that they are massive. And so i thought well Sixty speaking at primordial black hole could radiate more energy than previously thought. So i found that aspect interesting and then sees you mention the possibility to increase the effective number of species. That's related to what it was talking about. So then you the black hole would ra- gate more neutrino States or more neutrino Species to spe pseudo speak and then Would increase the number of neutrinos per cubic centimeter Data we observe today so I'm kind of glossing over a lot of these days. But basically cosmology gives us a measurement of this and effective which is called the effective number two species. And if you have this right. Handed neutrinos coming from the primordial black holes. This number could be higher than than expected. And so that would be may be a i way to tell that maybe there are more black holes in the universe yet. So so the hawking radiation essentially creation coming out of black holes Expected defined Expected that over a long period of time. Black holes radiate away lap. Later ray out the mass or information that didn't do it And so this. Radiation is hockey. Radio station is it is a new park. Or is it. Fundamentally composed of neutrinos hawking radiation is made of every particle that no of so A black hole. A camera gate Pretty much everything. Photons neutrinos throngs You loans It said cetera but There is the catch here. The fact that a black hole has a temperature which is another Big achievement of stephen hawking to end and others To that the black hole is thermo dynamical object and so Basically the bigger the black hole the lower the temperature so if the temperature is really low The black hole wouldn't be able to immed- Very massive particles because they are thermal energy would be sufficient for that so because masses energy Mc squared right so because massey's energy If a black hole has too low of a temperature It wouldn't have its quantum energy It's it's Wouldn't be enough to produce the mass off a particular particle for example a proton may be too heavy to be produced by a really low tanto black home so so the beaker. The black called the lower the temperature. Yes ed so. So then can expect the bigger black holes to have more of a neutrino content in radiation. Yes because The bigger black holes would as i said be able to radiate the heavy particles and so they would only be able to radiate away the low mass particles and so there could be black holes that only emit photons gravitons and Neutrinos do a of sort of the distribution of this primordial black holes Isn't you know sort of everywhere. What is what do we know about you. Know some of the distribution of bbc's you mean spatial distribution like where they are now. I'm wondering just like the easy would do sort of look at the early universe will find them everywhere Probably at the beginning they would be a more or less uniformly distributed Bug in the universe. Today they would probably be Behaving like the dark matter. Does they would Be part of galactic halos In other words they would be they would class gravitationally on large structures like a like a galaxy placido galaxy so these call still around They would they would behave like like the dark matter down. So they would be in in halo. Galaxies would have by. Now have april would would they not have disappear because it far it depends on the mass That they have when they are born so their if their mass is less than a certain value that trying to remember Basically yes they would have to By now they would have completely evaporate did their masters larger than they will take longer to evaporate and they could still be around So they roughly speaking the dividing line between a black hole. Steve being around today or not. I think it's something like ten to fifteen grams fiery recall correctly into fifteen clams though So this paper. Eusebio obtained the diffuse flux of right hill. Neutrinos from his idea and so so. So so the nikkei actually act to build these neutrinos. They'd be flying here do pbs specifically In principle that's a possibility we Considered that for certain Masses of these black holes and certain density of this black holes the flux of neutrinos that they generate over time could be fairly large and so we could Detect these neutrinos If we had a very Power who attacked so Now life is never ideally in the sense that a real Ut detector have substantive issues like ground And so on. So at the end of the people we conclude that impact is giving given the limitations that current nutrient doctors have It may not really be possible to detect neutrinos trump mortgage black holes but people. That's a possibility and that alone is interesting. Yeah because they suggestion that this primordial black holes could be as as you mentioned could be part of the dark matter that yes to seeking. Is that still About us that has been. There has been a debate on these Kind of going back and forth in the scientific community The latest i heard is that Black whose could be part of the dark matter. Maybe even a large part but probably not they entire dark matter so a one hundred percent primordial Battery is a bit difficult to justify the day. experimental bowels that we already have constrained so various types but there could be scenarios where maybe a fraction of the dark matter. He's made of primordial black holes. I wanted to go into a ended up paper in twenty twenty supernova neutrinos directional sensitivity and prospects for dissertation here the export potential of current and future liquid cinta league neutrino detectors. I decade old town. Mass a localize a super a supernova neutrino signal into sky in douglas was feeding the core collapse nearby star tens to hundreds of english Coated and don't be constructed policy in the detector can be used to estimate a direction to the star so so this is now neutrinos from supernova and You so so we. We have Idea here that before this opened on what happens. If please open over a time period it is creating neutrinos that could pick up and and potentially get ready to see the super bowl. Yes that's what excites me The fact that Think about bitter jews. Beetlejuice is the most famous nearby star. That could go supernova anytime and we don't know when that's going to happen and If it wasn't for these neutrinos that our paper is about we will know until the style literally Collapses and and then soon after becomes superman but in this paper we we Show that before the star collapses which is the beginning of the supernova process We can detect these. These neutrinos That are used at that at that stage and so increase the pool we could know that You know tomorrow. These days beetlejuice exploding and that that would be quite exciting. Yeah it's beetlejuice is is red joy and reasonably close to was really big star. I can remember Cecilia there was some suggestion that It could go supernova within something one hundred fifty thousand years which is obliquely in cosmic time so it is getting ready to go to Supernova right yes. I am not you formed about exactly the number of years give or take but it's it's ready it's ready. It could be any time and any time any time for an astronomer muse anytime the next thousand soviet so we should. We should hold their breath. But it's ready could be tomorrow. It could be in a hundred years could supernova. I know that this is not part of the paper but could the beetlejuice supernova avenue adverse effect on north really know a supernova is very very spectacular event. it's it's a star that collapses so it implodes i and that explodes and then when he explodes It's very bright. In the case of bitter jews we could. We could see by naked-eye shore but in terms of A fact of each radiation and neutrinos in light on on us and on our daily activities. It wouldn't it. Wouldn't affect them in any way so it's a save Show to just enjoy without any worry. Great answer so you talking about supernova neutrinos so so can be actually detect neutrinos from supernova. What different from what we talked about in the previous people Different from pbs I'm not sure. Can you repeat yes. So the new teen emanating from a supernova different from the Neutrinos of expectancy from a primordial black hole. Yes the the different In many ways disney trails have higher energies. So it's much much easier to attack them and indicates will beat the jews. We would detect thousands or even more of dan millions. Probably of them Indiana so different in the way they are born because in our primordial black hole ordinary black hole The processes volcanoes the asian. Which which is a gravity phenomenon in a supernova. You're born out of the very hot and dense environment That the that that the star as after it has collapsed so star collapsing on its own way to become very dense and so In this very dense in hot environment nuclear processes take place that produce these nutrients. So i guess the main difference is that indicates supernova it's most nuclear phenomenon and in the call is really fundamentally a gravitational sonam. Okay you discover technique in this paper and you saved sin principle possible unique the identify the progenitor star so So the existing technology and ideas discussed in the paper viki see teacup a neutrino decode. Identify valid came from or what direction thing from embed you can go back and look at the in that direction if he find to supernova then you could say that the supernova that created in-principle Yes let me. Just say that There are situations and this is not one of them but there are situations where if you have one neutrino you can point to the pointing the sky. What came from in these case. It's a little more complicated. Because what really gives us. The information is the statistical distribution of these nutrients so we are talking about may be the tax in hundred a hundred Gable take from say be for example and What did detector really observe is not the neutrino is kind of a vector which is related to the products of these neutrinos so this neutrino sues interacts with the interact with the detector. And then out of this interaction you have a positive on the new thrown and those can be observed and you can you can create a factory using these two and then and then these rector will have a certain orientation but each each neutrino coming will give you a differently oriented vector but statistically if you look at the distribution of these factors you you can tell you can you can do for with a certain of course The direction of the neutrinos because these vectors are not uniformly distributed they are they have a non uniform distribution of the direction. And so using this information we can we can define a regional the sky where The new three could come from so we can. We cannot now down to a point but we can now down to maybe a cone of a few tens of degrees Width and then we look in that cone and see what stars that com and maybe be juicy one of them. Yeah so As you say you if you see a few Neutrinos Statistics bution of those will give us some some probability That it is in in some region of the sky. And then you say the paper You can then that if it is happening please open nola. You learnt other observational. Modalities multi messagero rations Invisible in radio and other other types of observations Do actually pick up more data so this is almost like a early alert system If it is in place right yes i would call it a very early I learned to because it's we're talking about maybe our worse or insert very fortunate cases. We are even talking about maybe day Before the assad goes supernova and. so that's enough time to plan for for it so a something that fascinated me When i heard about this from a from a an experimentalist is that there is a human factor which was not aware of but The factories so if you have come up with thirty minutes to plan for watching supernova this may not be enough because it just takes stein to make phone calls and get a hold of people and and decide what to do. Come to a consensus in that. I saw in addition to technical things. Like okay have to maybe turn your telescope Direction which takes time. But i i was really fascinated by the human factor. Those things that if you had style we'd be you can kind of gathered. Relevant people decide something but if you have thirty minutes or or or minutes maybe not so. Yeah yeah i wondered. If such a earlier system is in place Perhaps could be something programmatic. Crises is picking up And you have some you know. Maybe some ai techniques or something like that that identifies the region and it goes. Programmatic returned the telescopes look. Yes yes exactly so. There could be a protocol in place For that so e if a telescope was suitable for observing a nearby supernova which which is not always the case than than now that we showed that it's possible to know beforehand if a star is going to go supernova then there could be some sort of protocol in place already so that when the alert comes which is we can just activated the protocol and oriented telescope. maybe automatically will in some sort of Organized way yeah as you say if you remove humans from the process it becomes not better there is actually already working this direction It's called this new two point. Oh a network which has to do with Exactly these using neutrinos as alert for the astronomy community and That has to do with exactly a creating alerts and also creating protocols for how to react to an alert rate. I want to end the people that just came out. it concordant scenario for the observation of neutrino from the tidal disruption. Even eight hundred twenty nine hundred ninety s t You say be induced at phenomenology concordance canadia with the logistic jet of for the title disruption event Between ninety s jesmyn proposes a source of the astrophysical neutrino event. Ice cube So the title disruption even this is star getting cooler into a black hole getting Getting sucked in rate is that the is that even up to the match yes This is something that we We had about be in in popular science stalks What what happens if you get too close to black hole and It's kind of scary. So the answer is you would be ripped apart because your feet will be pulled in with a strong force than your head and these. This is what happens to two statehouse. Use the star gas to close than by guests Ripped the park. Which is what the tied is option means and so instead of a star Rotating around a black hole we just have a stellar stellar That dr intially. I created by the black hole and so This is something that The happy neighbor cops serve did so so we have. This does happen this particularly Eighty twenty nine hundred ninety s and Bequeath actually see a new cleaners from that particular even so tightness. Deduction events are fairly well established phenomenon in astronomy. We have many of them served They they are Fairly a common plays events But what's special about this particular one. Eighty two thousand nineteen years. G is that We could let's say It could have Produced on neutrino that was detected a ice cube so eighty twenty nine hundred ninety s. She is the first either direction event. For which is coincident. Neutrinos detected a dice. Cube in queens. This coincidence is likely to be accidental. So on approachability estimate tells us that these coins. This is pretty causal not accident so eighty twenty nine hundred ninety. The g could be the parent of this neutrino. And that's that's that's a i. That's very interesting. Yes i skew. is a is a big ice cube in the in. The south is I'm not sure it's exactly cuba. But it's it's the biggest block of is which has been Eastern With values Small detectors So it's it's an array of swarner detectors but yeah it's basically a big block of ice which has been transformed into a detective and so so the idea that this high energy neutrinos from what they were System montemar even that happened Out there this high energy neutrinos passing through that ice q. believe some telltale signs All of that happening and yuxi picked up Then began back Just like you were talking about the previous creeper begin. Please back to a region so this is one of those cases where you can tell from a single neutrino of course the with with a narrower where you can tell the point in the sky where three neutrino kate from. It's doable with one single neutrino because this high energy neutrinos when they enter the is They produce ca a shower so they kind of illuminate. They you me nate. The is but the do it in a way which is very much Beat so and then and then the direction of the the direction of bigotry knows. We have a pretty good accuracy often. How often could be a pickup something like that. Do we have an estimate of how often that would happen. Meaning ice cube detects something like this. Every year ice cube the tax Of the order of ten high-energy neutrinos froth outside our galaxy. Tadesse the number for the entire crop of neutrinos that ice cube has It went we talk about tidal disruption events in the specific these are fairly rare phenomena and so they estimated that maybe a few times so percent of the entire neutrino flux the thais cubeys of serving could be from tidal disruption events. Not much more than that. So we are talking about less than half of the total flats being to tell this option events okay and so the tug disruption burned as as you mentioned It starts getting clipped applaud and pulled back into a into a a black hole but this ten percent. Do they have to be these braces as they call it. The things that have a jet that is sort of lying towards us. Is that it necessarily condition for these types of high energy neutrinos. It's it's a plausible scenario Let me just say that. There is an important difference between blazers in tidal disruption events. In the fact that the ablaze is something that has a jet. She's always on so the jets kinda kerman feature of of these particular galaxy but the title is adoption. Event is transient events. Saw dotcoms creates the accretion. This accretion of the star of the black hole produces flair is flair can last year or two but then it would just fade away so There could be jet and in fact in our paper we present where there is a jet so they partisans the user chat But if there is a jet in tiger disruption event. That's a transient suggested. That's born when This starts to create the stellar debris. And then it's on for months or years and then and then shuts off and it has two point in our direction as you as you mentioned because otherwise we would. We would see the trains your so this high energy neutrinos sillier how. How many orders of magnitude are we talking about coming to the one set you pick up. Let's say from the sun I'm not sure about the question. Can you maybe rephrase yet. So when you say this high energy neutrinos that is coming from let's say a tidal disruption events or something like that How much comedy orders of magnitude more energy Outdoors come to you. Know the ones that might be created the sun a lot menu of this magnitude so It is a big difference. So the sun produces new three meals. over a wide range of energies Higher energy neutrinos from the sun reach energies of the order of ten am pt and mega awards and for the ice cream. Neutrinos we are talking about one hundred of the older one hundred t. v. or even thousand teams. Which would be p so. Let's say maybe eighty tortoise magnitude finding the mass rife or okay and so this e. v. measure it is actually measuring the mass of the neutrino of newfield. Now these these neutrinos are have such a Such high energy that basically It's impossible to know their mass Because because as i said massey's energy so they talk energy of neutrino Detected is to be so high that that percentage view to its mass east so tiny that this practice mutual so i was wondering if we know the energy couldn't be sort of back computer to save the mass is or it doesn't follow The reasoning is a bit different and The way to sink about this is perhaps they let me see the formula for energy particle Which used the rest energy Applause the kinetic energy and So connecticut is so high that he thought the overwhelms direct energy. So it's it's and of course every time you measure the energy when three no. There is a narrow associated with the measurement so You we can't really we can't really tell what What led the boss of the detroit news but both roughtly this. This appears to be sort of an early warning system for many many things right topped the supernova the in the title disruption events producing heightened plano's So this could be sort of inundated with a monkey message. Observations protocols as you mentioned that gives us a higher success. Wait suspect. I would think certainly nominated be one right That's the power of multi messenger astronomy the integration of different signals coming from Photos tree knows navigation waves Causing me craze and Danger plays very powerful emmanuel cases and maybe supernova case is the most striking Xenos come first. But that's not always the case So in the indicates of tidal disruption events Did you know that was observed. Came about five months later than the initial dhammika looser version of the tidal disruption events so It's if it can go both ways. neutrinos can be early alert or they only alert could be for example a radio salvation or or an x-ray use ovation and then and then the neutrino attacked or could Focus a surge in that direction as see what they find which which has actually been done ice cube sometimes. Does these these archival. Search this on the basis of others from From for example x ray or gamma ray surveys interested. Exciting eighty that said a lot to be owned It seems It seems like these till don't know all the production mechanisms for neutrinos but if we have robust with to pick them up on than we can place them back and and talk asking questions What might be there definitely So yes so. People celia the next five years Wanted the aid is that you believe Be will make a significant crocus in this Innovative neutrinos then two different areas. That a very promising One is Broadly speaking Manmade nutrients so there is. There is a big push especially hitting the united states to build Create very powerful beams of trainings and then these beams are manmade. So we know that very well. We know that energy we know the composition and we can use them to learn about The properties of treatments and then That other men bead neutrino experiments where Scientists look for the between months so that's also very promising In something i really. I really excited about that. That may be a furious novel with noble the neutrino mass us from these very high position laboratory experience. Then there is the whole Topic of neutrinos as part of the mouth of mike messenger astronomy and in that area. I think what was was to look forward. To among other scenes is the interplay gravitational waves shock waves. You still Somehow a science of its own into a large extent but there are so many possible connections. We've neutrinos tidal disruption adoption events should produce reputation ways so baranov shoot us gradation ways So so there is. There is a a lot of potential there which is still unexplored in and that's where i see myself Working on in the next few years you adjust very quickly The do gravitational waves travel bid closest and new ashtrays and so if If they both are produced in In uneven they're expected to arrive on earth close to simultaneously. It depends on the timing of the production if the answer is yes the waves ending a knows are born at the same time which may not be exactly true because the physics that governs tation waves is different from the one that that governs neutrinos. So but the difference in timing would be the difference Accumulated that birth But but the two were were generated genetically the same time. They should arrive the same time. Just thinking this a systematic difference in the production time than guan lorries given early warning for the other. But that doesn't seem to do a case right. There could be cases where significant lag in the production of rotation way with respect to the production of the tree nose and one example is. We haven't touched on this before but let me just nation mergers so if we have if we have a merger for example we have maybe a merger of a neutron stars or black hole neutral star before the merger happens so when the two objects that kind of still approaching each other we should start observe serving ways and this is what this is what has been seen so Delight experiment observes these these nominal But if we have a merger After the merger has occurred and the two objects have become one than a. Dan could be the formation of of over an accretion disk and he secretion Trainers which we can which we can back so the neutrino We come After they initially asian waves and so relation as would be the alert for the neutrino. That does excellent. your this has been great as celia. thanks so much complaining pleasure. Okay thank you bye. This is a scientific sense.

Buffalo, New York officers leave emergency response team after two cops suspended
"Is the buffalo police emergency response team which were among those individuals in the riot looking gear with shields with batons they resigned from that special a special position this is a report at a buffalo New York from earlier today at this special squad of buffalo police department officers this emergency response team they resigned from their posts according to the B. P. B. eight do you know what the B. P. B. A. is that would be the buffalo police benevolent association and this comes the day after the officer push this elderly guy down and two of their members wore suspended without pay so now they're quitting the squad fifty seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of the two members who are simply executing their orders said John Evans the PBA president see this is where things get interesting because you have the PBA wraps which go to the wall for police officers and I understand that I get it it's like even though you committed murder even though you committed a heinous crime you still have a defense attorney whether it's a paid for defense attorney or whether it's a a P. D. a public defender they still don't regardless of how heinous your crime is they still defend you to the help they still give you the best possible defense and in many cases that's what the PBA does they stand behind their cops I am very pro police because the bulk of the police that I know whether it's local state or federal the police that I know are fine upstanding individuals members law enforcement that serve their communities and country that's my experience with those that I know in law enforcement I support law enforcement but I will call out bad behaviour and what I saw in buffalo that's just itching for a **** that's just actually looking for all our problems so in this sign a unity the fifty seven members they resign well I think deep down they know that the officer probably should not have pushed the seventy seven year old a seventy five year old guy over M. S. special response unit was formed just four years ago back in twenty sixteen and is deployed to manage these types of events riots protests whatever the mayor of buffalo mayor Byron brown issued the statement quote the city of buffalo is aware of developments related to the work assignments of certain members of the buffalo police force at this time we can confirm that contingency plans are in place to maintain police services and ensure public safety within our community the buffalo police continue to actively work with the New York state police and other cooperating
An employment lawyer explains what we need to know as workplaces open
"Wednesay Scott is an employment lawyer based in Toronto. She's a partner at Roland Linzie Jordan. We wanted to talk to you today because almost every conversation. I have with anyone with the job at this point involves what's going to happen when we go back to work and I was hoping you could just answer some of the questions. We've been hearing. Yes I'm happy to so first of all I guess you probably been getting some of these questions too. So what what are the common ones or the maybe the most common one That you get yes. So I mean for my my clients who are fortunate enough to still be employed foreign away without exception. The number one question that I've been asked is do. I have to go back to the physical workplace and of course. The answer varies depending on your individual circumstances. That's the top question for sure. What kind of options do people who asked that question? Have if they're worried about going back to their workspace. You mentioned it varied how does it vary? And what kinds of questions should they be putting to their employer? I guess I guess it depends on why you're worried okay. So if you're worried because of a specific concern with your workplace so for instance you're aware of the fact that the is not taking the public health recommendations seriously and has in for instance modify the workplace isn't staggering. Schedules is of offering any additional training or policies on how to protect employees from in nineteen. That's that's a real real problem. And so if that's a specific concern than there are absolutely options for you In terms of refusing to to perform work and to go back to the workplace. If you're somebody that needs accommodation either for individual health reasons or for your family situation that could be another reason why you might be able to make some adjustments to your usual work routine if my employer is telling me to come back in but I feel that I can continue to do my job from home. And let's just say for a moment. There are no explicit safety concerns. I just you know it's. It's an incredibly frightening time and I'm scared and I want to wait a few weeks and see if things spike or not what can I do? Yeah if it's a great question so in Ontario and perhaps other provinces if you can do your job from home your employer should allow that so most of us here on -Tario will remember the government regulation closing various non essential businesses so in that regulation. There's actually a provision that says that any business that remains open shall operate so it's mandatory shall operate the business in compliance with the advice recommendations and instructions of Public Health Officials. So at this time the public health officials are advising and recommending that employees work remotely where feasible in order to limit the spread of Kovic nineteen so for now employers are obligated to follow that advice. Is there any sort of general level of safety that an employer is expected to provide by mean? You mentioned a couple of examples. But what about Just sort of in general terms in the workplace like. What's that judged on? Yeah we'll employers have a duty to protect the health and safety of their workers that was true before the pandemic and all the more so now so in the context of the pandemic they're required to implement measures to ensure that their workers aren't exposed to cove in nineteen while they're working And it's a really really big deal if they fail right on for obviously for moral reasons but also for legal reasons. They could face fines and penalties and in serious cases even criminal prosecutions under occupational health and safety legislation. So it's a high bar. They have to eat and there are a number of ways that they can do that. I'm thinking of some examples That have come up in conversation with a couple of people And I'm I'm sure that there'd be many offices especially that this would apply to Are they expected to create six feet of space between me and my co workers or are they expected to give me a mask and gloves to wear in the office? If I don't feel safe without them. Yeah so the. The provincial health authorities are telling employers that they need to do everything they can to make the workplace safe. And so yes the that's gonNA mean once sometimes called engineering controls which is a fancy way of saying addressing the physical structure of the work place. So if that means erecting barriers we see flexi glass in some in some modified workplaces on. It could mean designating whole as as one way. So you don't have employees passing each other. It could mean at creating walls or staggering Cubicles for instance so that yes you can facilitate that physical space requirement so this the physical workplace and then there's also all of the policies and procedures that need to be implemented whether it's staggering employee schedule so that we don't have know full capacity in an office at one time There's really a whole host of measures that employers can and should be doing as far as the p. p. e. component that personal protective equipment. The provinces are telling us that really. Pba should only be used when employers have done everything else they can do to make the workplace safe so some of the other measures that I spoke about When employer can't totally eliminate a hazard then yes they can consider the use of p masks and gloves and eye protection up and employers. Can't just sort of hand those things out and assume that they have Discharged their health and safety obligation

"pba" Discussed on Let's Talk Dementia
"We're going to keep going with acronyms and talk about. Pb A which is pseudo bar affect. Pseudo Barr thank this order. You often hear it called so it came to my mind today. I had a phone call from client. She brought my attention that her dad has. Pba and it's not something. I hear a lot and I thought. Gosh we haven't talked about that in quite some time you can reach me to talk about what's going on in your world and my email address is carol at. Let's Talk Dementia Dot. Org and if you give your memorial call you back. It's very simple well. This gentleman has PBA pseudo Bowl Bar Affect in this is a challenging disorder that can be difficult to differentiate from the symptoms of other neurological diseases With which is associated. So what is? Pba will simply put PBA is the inability to control laughter in crying so we will find individuals who cry for a reason that we have no clue or they laugh at inappropriate times or for things that again. We don't know why they're laughing about. They may laugh when they cry. They cry when they should laugh in. They may cry or laugh for no logical reason at all. There's no stimuli in their world in their environment going on at that time that would make sense. Oh Dad's crying because feeling blank. It's not a normal response to live situation that brings about this crying or this laughter so it's very disturbing for the families very disturbing for the individual. Sometimes it's hard to diagnose PBA from depression but with depression. We see a fair amount of crying. That's COM WITH DEPRESSION. But we can tie it to an event or circumstance or a situation that has become so overwhelming that now tears are very active in very prominent very prolonged Days on him but we can tie it back to that situation. I can tell you in my world. I've cried more the last year than I probably cried my whole life but as you know my sweet Mama passed on. May Thirty first that crying I can tie to an event In so that's different from. Pba PBA is crying. When we don't understand why it is described as a condition affecting the brain's affecting the brain with episodes of laughing or crying that are sudden unpredictable and occur without warning they could be excessive in aggravate exaggerated and inappropriate their involuntary. The people cannot control it. They don't think okay. I've got to stop crying. Got To stop crying. I'm GONNA stop crying. They may think that But they can't they can't stop crying. I'm not sure they would even think that because the brain is not allowing that process they are totally out of Any control over that situation. So it's a very interesting thing. as many as forty percent of Alzheimer's Mention patients have PBA. That struck me. I didn't realize it was so high. Forty percent of folks with Alzheimer's type dementia have pseudo bar affect disorder and as I said the inner episodes are inappropriate to the situation. There's no close relationship between the on emotional expression in the patient's mood in so it's it makes it difficult for the loved one so then you might. WanNa stop and think. Do I have a and good question to you? Well according to the Internet and the website. I looked at for the things that you need to be aware of answered the question. Are you more cheerful than in the past? And as I said can't with me yes I am accumulated sought to something Can you do that? Do you realize that you're crying more than in the past. And can you related to a reason Or You just overall depressed that would be a reason That would be the difference between crying because of depression in crying because a PBA with depression. You may cry a lot. You may not even know why you're crying today but you know you are depressed in that. Crying is related to the depression with. Pba You just cry and you can't stop it in. Somebody may be telling you a great job that is funny instead of your body being able to respond with laughter it responds with with tears. Well that's different than probably what you're experiencing Or do you have something really bad happening in your world you find out. Someone has passed and Crying you laugh. See how that's different from being able to connect your crying to a sad event or your laughter to a happy event is the emotion that you're having appropriate if it's not then we start thinking there's something going on. The question is heavy actually crying more in the past month not just felt like it but have you actually crying more in the past month when you think back on those events. Can you tie them to something? Does the weeping as come on suddenly with no warning at times when you're not expecting it in suddenly means that it's within only a few minutes in and not after several minutes of trying to control yourself you know I know that I hate to cry. I tell everybody I have one of those. Ugly CRIES OPRAH. Winfrey talks about in south by feel like. I'm going to cry. I do everything I can to stop it because I decry in so after. Several minutes are trying to gain my composure. I can stop the crying most time right with. Pba You cannot it something. You cannot control in a few filled tears coming on or if they started. Can you control them enough to stop them on the specialty in front of other people does that? Change the situation. Are you more likely to be able to stop them in front of other people than you would if you were alone because if you can control the crying it's not PBA because that is a neurological process in the brain that you don't have control over so as I was talking to my client this morning? She said there's a medicine called new DEXSA IN E U D E X A. I'm guessing I don't know It's very expensive But it seems to work really well for her dad so that was good news. I do know that some doctors prescribed extra authoritarian and Quinn quitting to help control the symptoms symptoms of PB. I I don't know how effective that is been. According to what I read it supposed to be pretty effective but whether it is or not. Aah Do not know but PPI can make just slightly more difficult for our folks with Alzheimer's in sometimes we'll see our folks with Alzheimer's crying with PBA type symptoms and will assume they're crying because they're frustrated in their sad in they're angry they're lonely in. That might be true but in the midst of that crying can you use version. They are be in. Pull them away from that crying. That thought process in. Take them to a happy thought process if you can they were not dealing with PBA but if no matter what you cannot change that mood for them so that they're no longer crying than we start wondering about PBA or if we find they're crying with laughter is appropriate or they're laughing when crying is appropriate. Then that's not Alzheimer's that's certainly would make you think. Pba Three letters and other ackerman acronym we may have another one on the next episode. I'm not sure But it is an interesting part of Alzheimer's type dementia and other dimensions also and that can certainly just make the journey more difficult for the individual end for the caregiver and remember that if it if that live situation is making your life as the caregiver difficult. It's making the life of your loved one difficult. Also they're not enjoying whatever it is causing you that extra worker that extra concern or that extra stress anxiety or tension. You might be film as the caregiver. Well they're filling too to some degree so keep that in mind. Pba look it up. Learn a lot. I hope that gives you some good information. I'll see you on the next episode of. Let's stop dementia by. Let's talk. Dementia would like to thank our sponsors National Association of Veterans and families.

Getting bisphenol A out of food containers
"I up in our Green Chemistry special edition of the podcast. We have contributing correspondent. Warren Cornwall here with the story about finding a replacement for the common can lining chemical this funeral a or commonly known as EPA these days high. Warren you start with this fulcrum this point where the tab of a can of soda attached to the body of the Cana Soda. Why is that a good place to start the story? I never knew how amazing the science and engineering around making I can was started reporting this story in this particular case. Ace this point where the pull tab is. Attached to the top of an aluminum drink can is subject to these huge stresses. You have to imagine that the inside of this whole can is covered in this. Thin layer of plastic can't break in order to attach this poll tab to the top of the can Dan basically after pound with a machine on the can top to create this little bump and then the pull tab sits on the bump and then you mash that bump flat because the what is saying. It's the most difficult fabrication in the whole universe. But I think he says in their whole universe okay that makes you and the whole universe the people at Sern would appreciate that but in the universe can fabrication for linings. That's their crux. We're GONNA talk about the lighting's the special liner inside of these cans usually contains. BPA OR A. What exactly is the purpose can't ends contained all kinds of material that can potentially be corrosive all kinds of acidic drinks? I don't know if you remember from elementary school. Well experiment where one of your teachers would put a nail inside of a jar with coq a few days later. It'll be gone so yeah stuff is corrosive And apparently the kinds of stuff that we're putting into cans now is even more corrosive than it used to be. All of these kinds of fancy craft beverages energy. He drinks so they don't want to eat holes in the cans and then the flip side of that. Is that if you've ever put a piece of aluminum in your mouth. It tastes weird and you don't I don't want that flavor to go into the food or drinks so the properties a can lining material have our resists corrosion. Obviously obviously what other things are important. Doesn't create any weird flavors of its own. Ideally it's inert so it doesn't react with anything It's inside the can in a perfect doc world. It's not at all toxic. It's still a benign. It has to be as cheap as possible and it has to go on the cans really easily really quickly quickly because they're cranking out cans at a rate of two thousand a minute so BPA. Which I think most people have heard of at this point because of concerns about its effect on health? Health checks these boxes except for the health one. What are the health concerns when it comes to? BPA well the main concern is that it can mimic estrogen when the body encounters BPA it can bind with estrogen receptors. Enough that the body. Can I think that it's binding with estrogen. There's a lot of debate going on about how much of a health risk is really posed by. EPA in the levels that it's founded pardon people's bodies the FDA still allows it to be used in most food related containers with the exception of baby bottles and sippy cups so the is said that the science suggests that it's not really a problem in other settings said the chemical industry and other industry groups have taken that got same message but you have consumer groups environmental groups and some university researchers that have done work suggesting that it can be problematic one of the stats. You mentioned in your story. About how more than ninety percent of people who live in the US have EPA in their urine. We pretty much that'd be a and US And some governments non. US governments have also decided to ban PBA right. You know the only one that I know of its flea abandoned his France right and you know one of the thing. I should know just going back to a comment that you made earlier about. BPA and cans. I've been told that for food cans in the United States about ninety percent of it is non. BPA At this point so food cans like peas and corn drink cans to or know for aluminum. EMINEM drink cans. It's about fifty fifty. Okay they've cut way down on this but about how much. BPA is still out there. Do you know how many cans with US liner are made. Every year they are every month. Yeah estimates are worldwide that we crank out about four hundred fifty billion with a B. Tans every year yeah three hundred hundred and fifty billion of those are aluminum drink cans the other one. Hundred billion are food cans some not small percentage are lied with. That's right you talked to. Scientists at a company called Thou spar that came up with a a new alternative a few years ago and a very unusual way. How did they get involved? Vow Spar in two thousand seventeen was purchased by Sherwin Williams. Okay this company had a business. Making chemical can linings and and one of the significant parts of that business for them was making BP based linings but they and other manufacturers were seeing the pushback from consumers and some governments guest EPA and so they were looking for alternatives. What they were finding is that? The alternatives had drawbacks right. Some of them were for more expensive or didn't hold up as well or did perform in some way that Kanye manufacturers wanted or for if they were trying to find a replacement in the same family of chemicals as BPA that family abyss females. There was concern sern that those chemicals were going to have some of the same health related concerns that beep at everybody was pushing to find a replacement because the biggest fear fear is that governments are going to step in and say no more. BPA Right. I mean the thing that's interesting to me is that they decided to go for it. Because you can imagine a company saying Oh man that could be a really expensive yet and there's a guy in the story who kind of figures in the Tom Tom Mallon and he's interesting because he's very much industry insider he's worked at. This company is whole life but he from the outset said look. We're going to have to go about this a different way. We're GONNA have to reach out to people outside the industry people outside. The industry don't necessarily trust US anymore when it comes to things like BPA safety so we're going to have to think about this a different way. People tell me that this is really unusual. This is a real culture shift. So what did they do to narrow the pool of chemicals out there to replace. VP aligning so they bring in a chemist from the outside who has experience in the pharmaceutical industry and the pesticide industry. So basically he had this long list of bisque dolls. That might work as can liners and the first green that he did was running them through a computer program that would see whether they were likely to fit in the estrogen receptor or not and then the ones that came out as potentially a non estrogens they then sent off for a series of slab screenings. The basic one was a yeast screening where these yeast cells have been engineered to glow when they're exposed to estrogen compound. At that point they have to do more tests to find out if these chemicals are also going to work well as a can liner they finally narrow it down to one candidate. Wow it's called Tetra. Methyl BIS Funeral F or T. Mbps they narrowed it down to this one mechanical and it had passed them basic tests when it came to its ability to affect estrogen receptors. And it was able to stand up to The harsh environment of inside a can. This is where they turn to. Basically they turned to their critics and said you tell us that this isn't safe to wasn't said they were challenging them the way they described it to me as they were coming to scientists and saying we want to build a better molecule for this. What should we do to make sure that it's actually going to be safer? Yeah they posed this question to environmental and public health advocacy groups and they impose that same question to researchers who have done a lot of science studying BPA and they actually took the chemical to their labs and tested faceted out and a bunch of different ways. That's right they set up the payment in a way that the scientists said they kept their independence so so the best example is a endocrinologist at Tufts. Anna Soto has done a lot of work on. EPA and its effect on in breast tissue the company made a contribution to tufts with no strings attached so it was not hurt to her lab specifically and then she came to tufts and said give me money for my research search and she found that there weren't Astra genetic effects from this alternative to be. Yes right she didn't find any evidence that was stragetic And then the secondary element that that was interesting is that she didn't find evidence that the can lining was leaching any of its T. M. B. PF contents into into the liquids. This letting him ICAL has been approved by the FDA for use in food product container. So it's already on the market. It's already something that people have probably encountered in their day to day life. The company has their chemical has been used to line twenty two billion cans since twenty seventeen nine. Wow so a lot of cans but a small fraction of the overall universal cans right going back to the safety testing that we talked about. I think it sounds is wise to approach people who have built up the skills to test for Indian disruption in their labs but is there ever a way to know if something is safe. It's kind of like the bigger question if the FDA's testing aren't necessarily rigorous enough. What should be happening to show that a chemical a safe to go sit next to food that might absorb it? That's an open question. Part of what was interesting to me about. This story. Is that when val spar went looking for an alternative Bernard route for testing their product. There was no road map for them to follow And that's still the case. They can't point to a battery battery of tests and say look. We have jumped through these hoops that everybody has agreed are the hoops that we should jump through did it successfully and therefore we can declare our chemical to be a gold star. Green label chemical. Is there a movement to codify. Something is an endocrine disruptor if it does this and if it doesn't do these things these five things or these ten things and it's not an endocrine disruptor. There are various efforts to come up with better more more rigorous more detailed ways of screening chemicals for possible construction. Regulators would argue that they currently have tools for declaring declaring whether a chemical is an endocrine disruptor or not and they're working on improving them so it's not like they're saying that their ways the the only way and there's no improvement to be done right our other companies going to follow this model of looking for chemicals to replace something that people have a lot of questions sweat and then turning to people outside industry to test it for health concerns. I don't know I mean I've talked to some people who've said that they think it it's a promising model. They think that the experience of Alice bars had suggested a company can do it successfully. But you know I've talked to other people who've said that there are companies who are working to develop greener safer chemicals but have really chosen to do it internally and keep it to themselves salves partly because there is a concern that if you say that you're trying to replace one of your chemicals with something safer you're bringing attention into concerns about safety of the clear curly us. Well thank you so much more and I sure thank you Sarah. Warren Cornwall is a contributing correspondent piece in Washington State.

Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad Fame and writer director Judd appetite according to the New York Times Erin. Paul tweeted there is is no way. Netflix will move forward with this. That would mean they are completely taken control of everyone else's art and destroying it. Netflix is far better than that and appetite.

When do you think the Innovation Gurus must be running out of ideas and other one comes along. That's enough to make you shake your head and wonder who approve this. Such is the case with a new line of flavored spirits from the folks at Pickering's Gin in Edinburgh. The craziest of these new drinks will make you either head right to the liquor store or or hold your nose. Brussels sprouts flavored Jen. Yep you heard me right. Pickering's has made a gin based on what am I favored veggies. The Brussels flavored Jin is for the holiday season and we'll be sold in six packs of clear Christmas ornaments. According to the industry publication food dive each ornament it will hold about a shot of gin once you down it. You can hang that ornament on your tree or not pickering's was appropriately self deprecating almost almost sheepish in this statement released about the new spirit we know it sounds bonkers they said but the humbled sprout delivers a pleasantly sweet slightly. Nettie Jen Perfect for mixing they posted on their website but if the idea of mixing gin with the trendiest of cruciferous veggies just isn't your cup of tea well pickering's knows that to they'll also offer jenn spiked with cranberry spiced pear and cinnamon and plumbing ginger all in ornaments of course beyond the fact that the weirdness was enough to catch the eye of many editors face it we laughed what's up all the concept is part of a trend by Jean makers just to add plant-based flavors to their concoctions in an effort to persuade non gin drinkers that the juniper spirit is worth their while and you know it's. Working Fortune magazine reports that worldwide Jin sales rose eight percent from twenty seventeen to last year as people sipped on varieties tinted with rose citrus citrus grapefruit even rhubarb and Basil Not Kidding inspiring these editions the intensely crowded Jin Space. It's hard to stand out when the number of finalists in the best Scottish Jen competition numbers more than sixty companies in almost one hundred twenty Jin's and that doesn't even take into account count Jen's from around the world including the old British giant beefeater that company alone sold almost three million cases of Jin last year so so how does a start up break through the noise with attention getting innovations if you're marcus pickering and Mat Gamel two friends who launched pickering's things in a former dog Kennel and twenty thirteen and followed up by refurbishing an old fire engine to dispense cocktails through its hoses of course they did but Brussel Al- sprouts Brussels sprouts according to one survey by Catcher brand hinds. We don't know why they are the single most hated vegetable in America but pickering's is Scottish. You say while their neighboring Brits put the sprouts at the top of their most detested list to now he was truly yeah. I loved them roasted. Maybe with some garlic in balsamic vinegar or Bacon for the last few years. They've been huge on restaurant menus. That's apparently because like pickering's brings. Restaurateurs also get that yes. There are a lot of haters out there but the people who love Brussel sprouts are passionate about these little tiny cabbages this Christmas Christmas pickering's will discover who loves who hates and how many of these Christmas ornaments they'll be able to in low cell.

That's the cheap one starts at thirty five thousand dollars. The luxury model s started about seventy five thousand even if you can get a federal or state tax credit.

The case has been under investigation for years last week. Federal judge finally handed star Kist a one one hundred million dollar fine for its actions one hundred million dollars. The maximum penalty allowed by law. The fine was a disappointment to star Kist which should complain to financial hardship and asked to pay only fifty million but the hardship argument didn't sway. US District Court Judge Edward Chen who said in effect sorry sorry Charlie. It's possible that greed was the motivation for the price fixing scheme but desperation may have also played a row remember when tuna sandwiches were almost as popular populars. PB and J. in school lunches will not so much anymore. Over the three decades that ended in twenty-six tuna sales declined by almost forty percent according to the Wall Street Journal title the paper reports that millennials are turning away from processed foods in droves last year star Kist Marketing and Innovation Executive told the journal a lot of millennials. Don't don't even own can openers with no can openers and millennials kitchen doors both star-kist the industry leader and Bumblebee are struggling Bumblebee which earlier paid twenty five million dollars in fines is reported to be considering bankruptcy. Both companies were allowed to pay their penalties interest free over five years but star. Kist which is a subsidiary of a Korean company called Dongwon group has also warned that it may lay off some of its twenty six hundred employees. It's also weighing whether to move a plant from American Samoa to Thailand Star. Kist says the investigation is now officially over but it is hardly the end of high profile price-fixing vice fixing investigations in the food business in July. The Department of Justice launched a criminal investigation into alleged price-fixing in the chicken industry. It is investigating instigating whether poultry giant Tyson foods and pilgrim's pride among others colluded to keep those prices artificially high if the allegations turn out to be true you the chicken industry doesn't have its tuna compatriots possible reasons for pushing prices higher chickens after all aren't processed food and so the poultry poultry providers can't blame their problems on the dearth of can openers and millennials kitchens.

PBA DOT com slash B W daily they from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday everyone we've made it. I don't know about where you are but it's still awfully hot down here. In Austin the kind of heat that's best treated with the day the movies or a nice cool dip in the swimming pool boy. Does that sound good. The problem is most of us. Don't have swimming pools and most public pools get drained after Labor Day. So finding a spot to swim hasn't been the easiest task ask until recently when a startup named swiftly decided to take the airbnb approached pools using the swiftly APP. If you have a pool in your backyard and you want to make a little extra money you can offer strangers the opportunity to rent it out by the hour for feet considerate the sharing economy underwater order in a good way since I'm actively looking for weekend swim spot I thought at tested out went to the website plugged in my city Austin Texas and chose the same day hey to see what I could find. At the last minute. My search turned up seven pools ranging in price from twenty dollars an hour at the east side country club to one hundred dollars an hour or for a private pool with a hot tub in someone subdivision at it'd be fair. The Country Club looked pretty stark and that hundred dollar an hour pool looked clean and peaceful but all this begs the question. Do you trust swimming in a stranger's pool. How clean is it and who else might be there the CO founders twenty-two-year-old CEO Benhamlat skin and his business partner Asher Weinberger say they thought of that they contract with local pool maintenance companies to make sure you won't find anything Hickey in your rented pool as for Privacy in the New Yorker writer Bruce Handy reported that simply tries to ensure that is well L. for instance handy says owners are supposed to keep their window shades down no spying allowed but when handy made a test visit in Long Island the owner was laws peering out the window. That's pretty creepy but it could be worse. We imagine for those pools that are labeled. Nude friendly swim please. Origins is our humble more like a teenager snow shoveling or lawn mowing business than a Silicon Valley Gig Economy Startup home from college in Lakewood New Jersey a couple of summers ago last skin got the idea while swimming in a neighbor's unused pool his family had been paying the neighbor for the privilege as Handy writes in The New Yorker Alaskan thought it could be a real business using Google Earth lasker found eighty pools nearby and contacted their owners all but four refused to talk to him but those four will they agreed to list their APU for rent and swiftly was born though at the time last game had no idea that it would eventually be a real business with pools in so far thirty thirty six states swiftly took off fast on the back of a homemade website and a newspaper at the business grew more than thirty pools in just a couple of weeks and and then lastly told Handy. MSNBC mentioned simply and Alaskans website crashed a year later. Alaskan dropped out of college to go full time with the new business today he and Weinberger have a professional website liability insurance for hosts and even rental Porta potties for hosts who are really busy to afford all of this simply charges the pool owners commissions and takes a small fee from swimmers. The metrics around the business seem a little loosey Goosey in one of the many articles covering simply the founders say some hosts. You're making four thousand dollars a month renting out their pools in other that number climbed to ten thousand to fifteen thousand dollars a month regardless of what the true earnings really are one thing is most likely true for many families. The backyard Dr Pool begins as an enthusiasm and winds up as a wasteland swiftly turns it back into something thoroughly useful. How long will it take for a rival pool. Sharing during company to pop up possibly not very long but for now swiftly doesn't appear to have a head to head or should we say a pooled pool competitor but within the wider recreation industry will there are more and more airbnb like apps for almost anything you want to do you could choose a different recreation creation sharing.

Amazon Tests Hand-Scanning Checkouts

Try It free for thirty days and get a free ten pound scale when you visit. PBA DOT com slash B W daily they uh from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Thursday September twelfth. You know that Ole joke someone goes to a Cadillac Shin raises her hand to scratch your nose and all of a sudden she finds she's bid on and won a cow. That actually happened to my producer years ago. Although luckily she didn't have to take it home well think about that while you think about this. Amazon is testing out a system that would allow you to well will raise your hand to pay for stuff at the checkout counter instead of Swiping your credit card or waving your phone at a scanner you just hold up your hand nearest scanner without actually truly touching it. No you might not buy a cow by mistake but I can imagine a few things that could go wrong but let's get serious for a second the system. Amazon John is experimenting with his code named Orville. Maybe after one of the Wright brothers who knows according to popular mechanics hand geometry was first patented in Nineteen eighty-five five making it ancient by high tech innovation standards the F. B. I. Says Hand Geometry has been widely used for things like employee attendance and access excess to protected places from the residential village at the nineteen ninety six summer Olympics to Walt Disneyworld to create a profile you lay your hand down on on a flat surface and a camera captures several photos of your hand and the shadows it casts the system then analyzes thirty one thousand data points and ninety measurements and translates them into a new Miracle Algorithm and while Ah an in-depth geometric hand profile this biometric technology technology is currently accurate to within one ten thousand of one percent but that's not good enough for Amazon which is trying to tune it up and make it accurate for it to within a millionth of one percent. Amazon is hoping to Roll Orville out at whole foods within months to use it an Amazon prime customer would create a hand profile and link it to their Amazon account once that's done to check out. You'd hold up your hand to a special scanner. Checking out would take only three three hundred milliseconds. Give or take a millisecond. If you're truly time starved you'll appreciate the dramatic improvement. A typical checkout now takes a full three to four seconds. According to the New York Post right now. Amazon workers are testing out old Orville by hand scanning snacks from a handful of vending machines in Amazon's John's New York offices why use hand geometry rather than say facial recognition concerns over surveillance make most consumers rather rather wary of being tracked that way but Amazon may be banking on the notion that we've gotten so used to using our fingerprints to unlock our phones or access APPs. We won't worry about sharing our hand. Profiles still a privacy expert interviewed by The New York Post warned that if someone hacks stores system they they could steal the stored hand profiles solving that identity theft problem would be an even greater nightmare than the ones. We're already familiar with. She said dead according to an email newsletter called the Hustle Amazon is far from the only tech company interested in using our physical bodies to make shopping easier this week apple patented a watch strap that can identify US via the skin on our wrists and use that skin data to speed up the checkout process as the hustled says it's all part of a plan to take all of the friction out of paying for things the easier and faster it is to check out of a store.

The Amazon is he's burning as we now know in late August aerial photographs showing Sao Paulo plunged into darkness in the middle of the day stunned the world that day turn night eclipse lips was a mystery at first but soon it became clear that the cause was some eighty thousand fires burning thousands of miles away in the Amazon rainforest the F. Corporation the multibillion dollar owner of Timberland vans shoes and the north face does not want any part of it late last month it announced that it will stop buying vying Brazilian leather. It won't start again the company said until quote we have the confidence and assurance that the materials used in our products do not contribute due to environmental harm in the country so what does footwear have to do with fires well. The fires on the edges of the Amazon are result of deforestation the station in drought loggers farmers and ranchers cut down trees often illegally they also set fires to clear vast swaths of ranchland mostly to fulfill the world's growing demand for beef. There are fires in the Amazon every year but the number of blazes this year is up about eighty percent over last year according to CNN the news outlet reports that the growth in the blazes is purposeful a result of pro beef industry policies promoted by Brazil's president gyroscope scenario Brazil is the world's largest exporter of beef Bolsonaro says he is not to blame the Amazon rainforest plays a huge role in mitigating climate change. The area is so enormous that unharmed it produces about twenty percent of the world's oxygen BEF Corp says it makes about five hundred million products a year making it one of the largest users of raw all materials in its industry in its effort to improve the company sustainability. VF Corp has been overhauling its supply chain by twenty twenty one. The company claims it will reduce the environmental impact of its raw materials by thirty five percent. Now one of those materials is leather Timberland. You know the Conic Yellow Boot Company is. VF's largest leather user leather is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. That's because of land-use changes like clearing parts parts of the rainforest. It's also do the copious amounts of methane made by the cattle themselves v F says fifteen percent of its greenhouse gas emissions come from leather weather. It's largest contributors cotton at more than forty percent given its public commitment to cleaning up the supply chain. It's response to the Amazon fires. This makes sense. One of Timberland's biggest rivals is doc Martin maker of the iconic Black boot. The British brand earned revenues news of about three hundred fifty million pounds last year up twenty percent from the year before the much smaller brand has made no public supply chain commitment similar to those of the F. Corp but like the F. It belongs to a consortium called the leather working group which sources materials from tanneries that attempt to reduce the environmental impact of leather processing icing on its own the corpse decision isn't likely to have much effect on Brazil's commitment to fighting fires in the Amazon but often where one company goes rose so go others and when they do together they have an impact so to do shoppers who as we pointed out here more and more lately are increasingly concerned about where their products come from and what effects they may be causing.

It's time to think about buying your ski pass. That's because the ski industry he has been consolidating over the last few years. Colorado giants Vail Resorts and Altarum Mountain Company has been doing two things each has been buying up resorts across the country country and abroad and they've been creating huge season pass programs the give pass holders access to the mountains they own as well as to partner resorts all over the globe globe as the two fierce rivals focus on selling more and more season passes daily lift ticket prices get ever more jaw-dropping last season season daily passes to vail or beaver creek another high end. Colorado resort broke two hundred dollars for the first time making those to Vail owned resorts the most expensive in the US. That's a hefty fee especially. If you want to bring the kids why so pricey will impart the strategies to force you to make the comparison and determined that a pass is far more economical than buying daily lift tickets why spend two hundred nine dollars to ski for a Single Day at Vale when you could good spent about a thousand dollars to ski all winter whether you're in Vermont or Utah even Japan for people who are sure they want to ski at least a few days this it's winter a pass from one company or the other can save you a bunch of money. Veils epoch pass is good at sixty nine different resorts the icon which Altera Tehrik created just last year will get you into forty one resorts from Colorado steamboat to the icons newest European Destination Zermatt in Switzerland. It's not easy to give a head to head comparison on prices because the potential combinations are dizzying. Do you want ski in only one state while there's a price for that. I want unlimited skiing including over holidays everywhere. That's different current prices unveils season passes range from about four hundred dollars for local resorts to nine hundred sixty nine dollars to ski anywhere including new resorts in Japan and Australia. Alturas cost around five hundred dollars for local resort pass say Colorado's winter park to just over a thousand bucks for access to all forty. One destinations and there are discounts for veterans teran's in children and for people who can skip the most popular holiday times. If you're shopping get actress spreadsheets depending on how much you ski either pass could save you megabucks compared to a single day lift ticket but you knew this was coming. There's a catch to get these discounts. You have to be a planner owner low prices and before Thanksgiving that's because a few years ago the rivals parent companies realized it would be smart to book revenue while Violets still warm out there rather than waiting for unpredictable Mother Nature to deliver customers early season pass revenue wooden just smooth out the bumpy nature of the ski a business it would give each company predictable revenue stream and for Vail boost share prices just like subscription businesses everywhere of course if you're an individualist. They're still bumper stickers on old vehicles in the Colorado rockies that say F- Vale you can still find an independent independent mountain or to those family mountains whether in Colorado or any other mountain state or often more down to earth not to mention cheaper than the glitzy resorts.

I'm David Brown and this is business awards daily on this Monday September ninth while you probably heard the headlines Walmart will no longer sell handgun ammunition in announced the change one month after twenty two people were shot and killed in a Walmart store in El Paso Texas. You'll also stop selling certain kinds of ammunition intended for hunting rifles but which can be used so-called assault style rifles as well. USA Today reported Walmart Mart currently sells about twenty percent of all ammunition sold in the US these actions it says will reduce that percentage to somewhere between six and nine percent. Walmart sells far fewer handguns ammunition. Currently the chain sells handguns only in Alaska. Those sales will end as well. The company stopped selling selling assault style rifles in two thousand fifteen and raise the age of all gun buyers to twenty one last year following the mass shooting in Parkland Florida in a memo to employees posted the Walmart website last Tuesday. CEO Doug McMillan said that he was moved to action by the El Paso shooting but also by numerous other events just in the past month alone own a few days before to employees were fatally shot by another employee in a Walmart in South Haven Mississippi since El Paso there urban mass shootings in Dayton Ohio and Midland and Odessa Texas all of which CEO McMillan referenced in his memo Social Media Lit up with calls for Walmart to get out of the firearms business immediately. After the passer shooting Walmart employees organized a walkout protesting Walmart's business and an employee led change dot org petition calling for Walmart restrict firearm sales and and both open and concealed carry in its stores received one hundred forty thousand signatures the Washington and Post reported Walmart is now asking customers not to carry guns into both Walmart and Sam's clubs in the twenty two states that have open carry laws in the memo. McMillan says it's doing so because workers and customers have been frightened by quoting here multiple incidents since El Paso where individuals attempting to make a statement and test are responsive responsive entered our stores carrying weapons close quote. He added that some customers carrying lawfully unintentionally created situations where employees call all law enforcement and evacuated stores by asking customers not to carry openly. Walmart is hoping to avoid future incidents. McMillan said the chain will continue to to allow people with permits to carry concealed weapons where concealed carry is lawful. Walmart said it will sell out its current inventory of ammunition. It didn't specify the size is or value of that inventory nor long expects to take before it runs out the chain is attempting to balance the new policies while still serving hunters and other sportsmen and keeping gun rights advocates in mind it will continue to sell long barrel deer rifles and shotguns along with hunting apparel and accessories gun control and gun rights advocates advocates reacted predictably with gun control activists welcoming these moves by the country's largest retail chain and pressuring Walmart to go further on the other hand the the NRA called Walmart's policy changes quote shameful still CEO Doug Macmillan wrote to the White House and Congress advocating for stronger background checks he called on Congress to renew debates on the assault weapons ban stopping short of endorsing the ban outright hours after Walmart made its announcement cement kroger the country's largest grocer also announced it would ask customers not to carry openly in its doors. The supermarket chain ended gun and ammunition sales in the months following the Parkland shooting. Walmart's biggest brick and mortar competitor target has been called the quote Liberal Walmart mostly for its stance on guns runs. It doesn't sell firearms or ammunition. In the early nineteen nineties it stopped selling toy guns designed to look like the real thing and it asked customers not to carry firearms arms into its stores five years ago in twenty fourteen. CEO McMillan says Walmart serves more than sixty percent of America's consumers in any given month month have given Walmart's pervasiveness. It's new gun. Policies may cause real change in part by spurring other companies like Kroger to follow its lead. One thing is for sure. These moves are certain to inspire even more intense debates between gun control and gun rights advocates. Hello from one this business Wednesday.

Daniel Pantaleo, O'neill And Commissioner discussed on Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning
"Let's get right to it Daniel Pantaleo was fired yesterday by commissioner o'neill and who better to we'll get his thoughts on this subject that I think is really dividing the city than former police commissioner bill Bratton good morning to you bill morning Michael so I got to ask you did your friend commissioner o'neill make the right decision in firing officer Pantaleo well obviously Jimmy commercial nail believe she did that he had access to significant amounts of information that's been gathered over the last five years the by the trial judge that went into great detail as to her recommendations so process was one of the I think everybody agrees that took much too long that will be one of the lessons learned going forward the the idea that historically police agencies the poor to the justice department the US justice department on issues involving US civil rights investigations I think this one will be a watershed in that five years justice department could not make a decision that delayed the NYPD Blue report on theirs I think in future years to be less difference the justice department but quite obviously occasional Neil anguish over his decision let you know by that one and that is say is the final say what message bill does it send to other policemen I mean a commission it was saying the chokehold was appropriate the beginning but he held it too long for seventeen seconds I mean seem to send a message to the police beat out he could be really careful when you arrest somebody now well technically that message is always there going back to my days in nineteen seventy joining the Boston police department at a rest the ultimate use of police power other than the use of deadly force and it's something that is always brought with Carol cheekily when that aggression is being resisted it was as it was in this case absolutely led to the awful tragedy in New York state as in many states there is no right to resist arrest and this one certainly have extraordinary tragic consequences for the god family discount certainly but also for panel ale for the department for the city for the nation as it wrestles with this historic problem that is very much in the forefront of very much look for fun over the last few years here in the ark because of the we got a case its resolution of the garner case in the sense of it was an action there was a charge there's been a finding there's a penalty but the issues underlying it all the racial tension the racial discord the country's original sin if you will what remains of apartment has been making great efforts with the support of many communities around the city to try and heal those historical tensions conditionally on particular the irony the neighborhood policing program that he lied about that that pushing very heavily these last so we is is beginning to take hold one of the things that would attempt to address is exactly the situation that the hospital they honestly gonna found themselves in Hopkinsville plaque that morning the idea of a community that wanted something done about major disorder in the in the area drug dealing distorted public drinking public urination they had said enough but as the police to into the sea please send to cedar and unfortunately the result was what with with us for the last five years going forward the the restoring order requires such as police action active which is based but it clearly is a shared responsibility do you have a message to the rank and file and the PBA as you saw was extremely upset there's some talk about job actions slow downs and things like that and obviously they feel put upon now and and and sort of dissed by the commissioner what would your message be to the rank and file today but it's the same one official nails quite pointing out that putting out to them that this was a tragedy for everybody but as New York City police offices as police officers if taken the nose to uphold the law to enforce the law to go to a danger and they will continue to do that I think some of the union comments unfortunate that being betrayed as a call to inaction in courage in offices to slow down if you will some offices may the majority will not the nature of policing often times require is strong assured of action and offices will continue to move toward the calls the service the calls to danger a slowdown serves no purpose because it gives the criminal element in the city a sense of the police aren't going to do anything and if it goes on for a long period of time then please trying to regain control is more difficult effectively a call for a slowdown in action increases the danger and risk June the oxy city police officers because the message will go out the cost of college the cops in cells are free to act well we we already have the situation with the cops having water thrown at them the other day in Brooklyn I actually shots fired whether trying to respond to will call I I think they feel pretty put upon right now and nobody's got their back again and you know in this this comes right after these type of episodes where it seems like this kind of behavior was tolerated well that's exactly the point I'm making the I. dear they do not feel that they are being supported the judge for example on one of the arrest was made in that melee a book from the other evening the the prosecutor in book one was not been particularly supportive of the police and the police are respected I recommend the ten thousand dollar bail according to the article I saw in the paper this morning and the the judge in that case basically put the the young man into a diversion program she didn't accept the bail recommendation from a district attorney's office who very seldom recommends bail in mostly focuses on the version this case he did not show it correct that is not a great deal of support on the criminal justice reform movement on the part of a number of Jie's water judges and cops understand that but the idea here is they still have to go out and do their job do it legally constitutionally within the guidelines and policies as if they don't then their job becomes even more dangerous to them and to the public as a whole that's just the reality of it Joe might be a B. H. H. slow down as it was back in two thousand fourteen during the tragic deaths of boxes the detective of the salute probably likely will there be a vote of no confidence informational nail in the mail almost guarantee but the as time goes on all this will basically be behind them in some respects as relates to this issue but the underlying problem is still there that yesterday was not a resolution it was with a basically a the swatch will particular incident at a particular time but the underlying issues many of which you just raging terms of officer concerned about not being supported at the ironically after three straight years of crime decline in the city which was largely brought about by the NYPD working with the ace that working with the community but largely the direct result of their actions and their sacrifices all right former New York police commissioner bill Bratton thanks for your thoughts thoughts bill we appreciate it okay all of us Michael good morning take care bye

It's game over it's game over. And part of what made me so upset. I noticed what was going on. Now long after the whole cabernet thing. Brooke? Taking a look in. I was tracking violence towards police officers. Remember before the whole Nick thing, even you had the Dallas Cowboys, and they wanted to honor, you know, the cops that were murdered the NFL wouldn't let them and all that. And I started being more aware of what was happening to police officers in this country. And I noticed that there had been escalating violence is actually started a weekly series that I do here in south Florida. That tracks the violence against police officers. And here you have someone posing as journalists who has the audacity to say he didn't offer examples have oust police has resulted in police being killed or assaulted. Well, I got it for you. You might suck at what you do might not do any homework might not want to because it would just prove the nonsense narrative a year advanced. But here's what's real. In the story. Remember, this is the Florida police benevolent association ain't about politics is it they endorsed the democrat for years ago for governor. They're endorsing Rhonda Santa's the Republican this year. So obviously, it's because it matters more now right now. He fill in the blanks here since twenty fifteen five hundred and seventy three police officers died in the line of duty five hundred seventy three.
