A highlight from Being Able To Adjust
"Just thinking about what was just said a minute. Let me think about what was just say. I know that she didn't try to get the best of me. Like there is no situation to risk. But am i supposed to stop doing what i'm doing to make someone in her life comes and goes when i am not even their compliments and the fact being related related whose relation and trust the people you are around and about which does not dictate what you can say. What will be a pandemic. Which is the situation hand. You'll never be able to heal by going back to what broke. You does not make family. Those relatives family is those with home. You share your good bad and ugly and still love one. Another in the end family are the ones you select justice. Sentence peration okay. Let me see this person. Wants me to go back into someone. I once knew to make the life. Easier could jeopardize what i have been within my life really. I can't even fathom thoughts sitting around with someone who will make me feel ill. It's not all peaches and cream. When the person was in my life the attitude just to wear the shades the fact of lies and disrespect one thinking. It was okay for not looking. Like i was just there to be there but boy do they have another thing coming. You cannot understand a person without understanding what a person has been through in overcome when you can realize for the first time you have no pain of moving on letting the toxicity be removed completely in my life so when i show up i am proud to be. Just how far will you go to make someone feel special instead of making memories. Not say a bucket list. The bucket could not makes a difference in some ways it may be good or just. The course in life makes the pale too small of an ocean with fish swimming of things. I would love without hurting someone. Make sure you have a poll so you can say oh man here. Let me add this to the bucket minute. That was so much fun. I think i could just toss the fish back. So when i am ready to make you feel at ease up i can go back out there again. Not still swimming in the water. It makes the bucket which causes the love of new energy and life away. No one will be able to stand. There is no room in life when it's someone else's fault then it was you who could have done something about who what where or win. That is a real question. You can ask yourself to put it mildly given the opportunity to do again i just could have a because the path he walked. No one is able to pick up those shoes even if they just lifted off the show. So start from. The beginning is putting you and your place in a new era. It cannot be traced back to you. The lie said a coming within a person smile. You know obsolete nothing about you what you will do so let us get the shop. Talk to make the talk real. Sure let them through in through the good pitch. Lynn whack the heck out of the ball for the grand slam play. The denny's could not even recreate knowing how to say. I apologize is so much different in. I am sorry that is just thrown around like passing a term paper or something and the difference with an apologetic state is within sincerity of the mistake or the unwillingness of the situation helping to make the healing process as well as the relationship with understanding. Do not grit your teeth. Do not make fix miles. Do not come around when someone asks about you. Just do not look at the calendar. Just say i thought i would say hey to keep you on. Reserve didn't with such is only a quick fix. When you can say how you feel tell the truth and you can work. The situation and there is how to get things started. I know you don't understand but you have to live with you. And i am responsible for what i do. So if you love me like you say you do not thin you will keep your issues within you. Not price them on people. You had no intentions of trying to see. It will not help you in it. Postpones the inevitable of another day because no one sees you like idea flipping pages like you're in the book. When going through life you have a lot of comings and goings some people maybe in your life or duration and then there are others who just come around to see what you're doing. Do not bat your eyes pull down the shade glasses or even turn your head to the side not understanding the situation. Just hold up your head and take responsibility for what you did or even said and no one is in a Incidence this is even happening. It is just the time to pull out the weeds in your life that causes you to grow in a patch of something. Someone may not even want it around now. I say that to say this. It is not i who must decide about you in life. You must be the one to find out the answer within yourself and put forth the effort to say. I have nothing to lose. But so much to gain when i decide to make that change.
Need For Companion - burst 2
"To forehead. I can't go back. Need for companion. Don't start thinking or just talking about what you're going to do before you think about the other person who you say you must run the information through but ask yourself or did you have to do such for someone's approval companion his one of a pair things intended to complement or match each other. I just can't believe you have to make someone else more important with your decision. One all you must do is just make the choice to change if they try to talk you out of it what it knows right. Then there's a problem with them to what if your soul needs compassion leading your ego bypass to let it be settled. Then you realize you'll have to deal with the situation anyway. It does not need to be room just delayed. How do you respond. Control what the reaction's will be and the ants. No one can control what may or may not come. It is a divine intervention in operation for the results. If you're still not messing the hurt within yourself. The independence range into an era of solidarity within you and surroundings most would not think you're strong enough for now but you focus is being in personal touch of the heart and soul within a relationship. Is it not being accepted for whom you are. Can you make changes to identify or even yet resembled yourself with someone in the past. They had entertained. But is it your companion making a model of you. Are you the complimentary when you when just his friends around mentioning his pass with them and not what is in your now today saddam. don't you beg for. don't you sell yourself short by pursuing someone that doesn't want to be with you it is written. If it scott's will it will be just as soon as peration. Don't think it's a good to be okay when it isn big yourself when you can identify was a situation because if you and that person a part then you'll be stuck in a run a finding you all over again but it is companion or is it were they even with you in the past present and not trying to leave your side in the future saying that it's okay to break down and cry laugh or even redevelop yourself not leaving your side helping you change for best and then you should ask yourself but do you really care. And they thought or stated it was the companion.
"perations" Discussed on Plan B Success
"Is a need for bull attempts to turn industries on their head yet. Experimentation can help avoid costly mistakes that bit of care can save millions of dollars thousands of hours in time compute and go after what the market truly desires. Many organizations. see it as money. When it truly isn't especially to bet on the future that worked for you when one does decide to embark on experimentation. There are a multitude of complexities an unknown to be concerned about from sample sizes in sample makeup to analysis of results. A lot of physicians go into any experiment but the key lies in how you decipher data and analyze results. Much of the results are studied as black and white and therein lies the problem without regard to the assumptions that brought about those results results need to be reviewed to gather insights into what changes to make what would work. And what would not any experimentation should begin with clear. Goals established stakeholder by -bility to execute on the experiment and gather reliable results and finally extract value from the investment. Practicality is key when you look at the purpose of any experiment but when pursuing notation it might just be the long pole in the tent. Costs may not be balanced in earlier parts of experimentation and having a vision of where you want to go is white through and sustaining such expenditure early on sometimes. The existing businessmen need to suffer in one of a better future. And that's a decision to be made. It's also possible that the results you get may be different from those you pursue yet. They may open up new avenues to go after. It's helpful to have an open mind to pivot. Rigidity has no place in experimentation the more fluid and flexible. You are the more you get out of it. Any experiment is futile. Without stakeholder commitment to go all the way and where results not make sense you should be willing to walk away and look somewhere else despite the expense. There are no results. That a futile mind. You the inform your strategy though there might dictate a change. It's important for everyone in walk to recognize that experiments are often agenda to learn and move forward. They are expected to chart a future. Pack and help formulate your organizational priorities about everything else. Every experiment is to test certain predictions and they may either be validated or not. Either result is wiped out to take note of sometimes. An experiment is just not doable. Due to the expanse of samples needed our costs involved. In such instances creativity helps info results but techniques that can wreck you get there with lesser import but reliability of results should never be compromised when it comes to making trade offs between reliability cost and time never let go of reliability experiments stand validated with repetitions. Repetition also helps with the accuracy of results and as a result leads to reliable even if at a smaller scale repetitions help establish veracity of results. And from these results you'll get the value. You see what works when and where is the question that it helps answer even understanding. You're cutting bell. Perations can rely heavily on these results. Most importantly they helped formulate better decisions. Why experimentation is just the tip of the iceberg true value lies in the data these experiments for light and the able to allies understand. Such data experimentation doesn't just lead to better ways of execution but also helps smarter decision making improved performance and the ability leading in the market.

Microsoft releases Surface Duo
"Wasn't a surprise to anybody who was seeing the writing on the wall but I somebody who wasn't aware that Microsoft was preparing to release a phone or a surface duo that isn't quite a phone. The announcement happened. It happened on Tuesday. It was a pretty big deal for people who? have been looking forward to this product. It was announced alongside the surface neo, which was a is a windows ten x product that has been since delayed before we get into the actual product was this launch sped up at all like we were under the impression that it would come out later in twenty twenty perhaps in the fall or or or even the holiday season but now it's launching in September. What what happened to push up that launch if if anything? Yes. So chat out to Zach Boden, our senior editor who's been. Covering a lot of this and he's the one that's been a lot of the sourcing on this information. So important to talk with this device has been in development literally for five years at least conceptually up until now in a lot has changed since then you know the chemo. was interested in this idea of round two, thousand, fifteen apparently, and he started putting together how how they do stuff at that. One reason you don't get leaks for Microsoft, is they build stuff internally in this one building on campus they three d print everything. So it always stays internal, but he started printing up like basically two smaller screens and tach dumb start carrying them in his pocket. Investigating what was the ideal size here. and. Then we start hearing about around two thousand seventeen. She's started hearing around two thousand seventeen and back then it was GONNA be like windows mobile or maybe kind of windows ten device we weren't really sure and then windows quarrel West started coming out with information air, which is basically abstractions of way from the with the fundamental understanding of windows ten is. And then. Stuff basically change right? They made a decision some time I believe in two thousand, nineteen early on that they weren't going put windows ten on this or windows ten acts or windows quarter wes. For the simple fact that they needed mobile APPS. So they made this like pretty last minute change to go to android and because of that. You know. It was announced with the android a last year as you mentioned, and then it was gonna be holiday season for this year but the specs of the device haven't changed much mostly because they've been so focused on core aspects of the design and function -ality which we'll talk about later that you know it's running a snapdragon e fifty five we all know does have she does doesn't have certain features that people expect in their phones and the F. Samsung coming out with the full to, and we only have the flip and LG. So the market is already starting to move towards this. So they did speed up the release and it's not so much a sped it up cutting corners it just it's done. The hardware was already done for a while it was more about getting android onto this device and as you know and you can speak to a little bit. It's didn't just slap android on this they worked with Google what really makes us device interesting is just how good android To work on dual screens but because of that. They sped it up. And they want to get it out as soon as possible because we already know internally do oh to is in developments like you know calm people expect companies now to do yearly updates on phones yearly yearly releases I should say and that's pretty much can be the case here we're expecting and you can't. You don't want to release a phone in December or November and then released next ball you know knowing how like six or seven months eight months ago I mean some people would only buy with four months upgrade right you. You try to avoid that as much as possible. So yeah, they're trying to get if you're one plus which you do twice a year up. Yes. Right, they're crazy. Yeah. So but yeah so that that's concept long. It's been pushed up ahead of time, but it's basically finished. So it's good. Okay. So before we get into the android side of things, I, still want I wanNA linger on hardware a little bit because it is so important to talk about what you're getting. Panos Panay. So you mentioned Panos, this is the chief product officer of. Microsoft he's the person who stands on stage introducing all the surface products and over the last few years that's run the gamut from surface laptop to the surface book. To the surface pro, we have that massive surface screening. What's that thing called the studio studio which is beautiful. So. There's clearly a cohere cohesion in the hardware division right now that I it finds. Microsoft. Sort of at the peak of its game and I've been really impressed with it as somebody who does not really. Spend a lot of time in that world not nearly as much somebody like you. Tell me about the surface. Design as it relates to other surface products and what the intent is given that it is an android phone, ultimately how it plans to fit into that surface narrative if you will share I I just wanted to talk about a little bit about who this is four because this is such A. You know we're we're so used to win a phone comes out funding like some something from Samsung, for instance. It's a mass release consumer device Arabize by everybody wants it. Surfaces typically aren't like that you need to think of surface devices one as harass perations devices. So they're always a little bit more expensive. They're also things that other companies are supposed to look at like that's a good idea we should do that. Encourages companies to. Not necessarily copied design one for one but a to rip off of it basically to get inspired by do their own take And that sort of the role of surface duo it's not meant to compete with Samsung and apple at this level of like grandma's GonNa go by Jimmy down the streets going to go by my neighbor Bob. Want want it's it's not that you may look at it. It'd be like that's a cool idea. Someday I may want something like that. That is exactly It's built for Panos Panay. Send us like publicly it's built for fans of surface people who live in Microsoft ecosystem. That's a very small group of people admittedly, and that's their expectations here for a sales. You know it's and so when people complaining what type of price later on all this kind of stuff, I get it but at the same time. They see this as sort of just a foot in the door for this new category of devices they're hoping in a couple of years as they go through rations, other companies get evolved that prices come down that. Then it becomes that mass consumer device no different than how surface pro did the same thing whichever's pro came out years ago two, thousand twelve. People laughed at it. It got bad battery life had problems. It didn't. You'll people complain about lap ability like there's all this kind of stuff going on with that and he stuck with it now served pros a well established sort of concept in terms of two and once. So. Of. Markets for and terms of design. You know some people will point to courier, which goes back to two thousand nine. This is a Microsoft project that was internal. It's a hassle dating story about development they were supposed to. They basically came to Bill Gates and was like we can do like windows phone and mobile, or we can do this courier thing and they decided against her. Because it was too proprietary. It didn't actually run any version of windows everything in it was custom built firmware. So you couldn't run like out what God was all this custom. Stuff but you couldn't stall things. And there's some DNA there. Right. But you know four Panos is idea comes down to a digital mole skin. He's been obsessed with this idea I don't even know what it most until years ago, which is a fancy journal, right? It's a bound fancy journal that people in artists and creative people like to carry around and he loves his idea of like a small digital version of that March has always done this idea. That's why other displays are three two aspect ratio. They liked to base things off of what we already know magazines, books, things that work right you. You can criticise whether books you know analog books today are relevant, but the fact is there's something about. Books Right. Like we all have kindles we all love kindles but we also all love the idea sometimes if growing up with a nice book, just opening it up and dog eared the the pages that's where to concept of duo comes from his his idea of a dual screen. Digital Journal kind of device could also work on with two displays.
Pogba to Leave United?
"Latest one mark involving Paul. Paul Bur what a mess this is Liz. There's and I think think partly appalled. Pope was making an partly is making really because they haven't exactly the holiday with kind of a stir this Linda Sheila since he's been injured. They've had to go to Miami to spend this work to Dubai's do fitness where if he's basically how the world of fitness Rehab in the United have allowed that to happen now it it doesn't look good. It was great. It looks like it looks like he's doing his own thing while Socialist teamer struggling to get me so you know. There's a disconnect there poker clearly was Levy said which is much June. The remnant were were circling around in a meteorologist said things that suggests that the relationship with the united isn't broken but it's a very strong book would he take more palatable united. We'll probably go there right now. Because united struggling the not the united were the side of the top four. They probably don't have a sporting project that you would say that. Liberal of God's on Muncie Eka identify. Were united to go in and right now. If you're Paul puppy thinking what am I going to win something you know substantial united. You can't see it for a long time. They're not win the premier league this year next year the year after the Champions League is a distant distant dream so if you're a pop punk rock and the Sunday Sunday was to get away and play for big big little more chance of being successful because man united way now inaugural of trophies but equally. I don't think Paul is play so you can make it will be again. Is the right place wrong time. Wise this whole coming out now because surely they could have played a lot better and like not talked about the operation and fitness issues and maybe could've tried to get rid of him in January. It's keep everybody happy. Well this fitness thing I mean I think social made a mistake. I icon on Wednesday after the game saying that pump is people peration that sounded lights Celsius was suggesting that pope. We didn't operation but he's people thought you did. Socially came Matto says yes. People also think needed an operation to so if he needs an operation game operated on. It was never gonNA go in January because nobody has the money to Paul Popa deal in January it would cost. What seventy eight million pounds? And it's not a deal that anybody really is GONNA do. Real Madrid haven't got the money to do that. Deal in January. So he's kind of United States Unites Nice to start with him and then hope when he comes back in February it can at least contribute something towards the end of the season and may get into the top four. Maybe get them to win the league. It's GONNA drug drug on. It's going to get the silver and he's going to go and it's going to be talking. Franklin birth is mentioned with us as well. Frank what do you make your fellow countryman the way this is all going down. Well that's not a good situation for Paul because of his injury because of his agents Speaking out and not saying good things about a big big club with the big history. I think it doesn't show a big major of of the player of a of fees entourage as well. I don't know what's GonNa Happen with Paul Truces in fact if you is exaggerating the injury if he really needs if we needed to surgery. I don't know what's going on really there and it's not good for the future follow. What's going to happen to him next year? But when you sign for a club and as always said that you have to make sure that you do everything to respect the club we signed you and then now days to be that when the players don't just WanNa leave just brick everything done to make sure that the club does don't don't want them anymore more so it's for me what's going to happen very soon. Tupua mentioned Cecilia. Kelly can go the don't want him. We don't want him and you can go anywhere. Who else sees situation isn't it has come to an end already? Well it's been a situation almost from the beginning didn't quite mesh on the field field for Paul and then obviously the injury issues of the injury shows. Now I have no problem going to seek out to get yourself back on the pitch as quickly as possible but I think it's then and when you're seeing at a Miami Heat basketball game or doing different things we're okay look. We know when you're injured. You're not getting your head away from things a little a bit helps but there's also a perception issue and the balance isn't right. The balance hasn't been right with with him on the field. The balance hasn't been right with him off the field and maybe it is the best for both parties just to kind of wipe their hands with it but I think is guys mentioned. It is an expensive deal. Menu are GonNa want significant capital back from the investment. They made and that deal probably won't be made until budgets organized with. Let's be honest a handful of clubs that are gonNA come after Popa.
Apple loses top designer Jony Ive
"Apple's chief designer Jonathan I is leaving after more than two decades in which his icon, ick designs for the MAC ipod and iphone turned one of silicon buddies faded giants into the world's most valuable company Janine Gibson discusses is means for apple and what Jonathan will do next with Tim Bradshaw and Matthew galahad. Sarah hunt for those outside the tech world. He might not know the significance of Johnny alive. Who is he? Well, I consider myself outside the tech world. And I mean, he's always a huge figure within the tech world, an even bigger figure out of it because along with Steve Jobs. He's the man responsible for the apple as we know it today, and the suite of products and gadgets and computers developed, which effectively changed the world of consumer electronics changed the world in terms of the way we interact with telephones and gave the world its first smartphone. He is someone with a very clear design aesthetic and without Mary to the drive and the relentless push for excellence. Steve Jobs, embodied, the two were kind of perfect pair. And the apple, we know today was on its knees when the two of them together. So he is a huge huge figure one of the biggest figures in global business. So his departure from apple is a very, very big deal because. Apple design leads the technology anyway, doesn't it? Yeah. Very much say the design studio were Johnny works, and web, Steve Jobs. Spent a lot of his time really comes up with the concepts of new ideas for products, and even anything down through the materials that they use to create those undescribed deep expiration of what's coming next so day than sort of go out and partner with engineering teams. The software teams to turn those into products ready the seeds of those ideas come from quest small, number of people inside a company that employs one hundred thirty thousand across its software retail operation. So it's a very small, but very influential group that Johnny has led full twenty odd years design leads the company, doesn't it? Absolutely. Yeah. Unlike any other apple, I think, doesn't think of itself as a tech company if thinks of itself as a design company that comes to peace tech. So if the aesthetics requires you to invent new material, you will go off and invent new. Yeah. If you come out with a phone turns out space slightly bendy than you had expected the next phone comes out with a slutty strengthened aluminium. So it doesn't bend, for example. So why is he leaving? Now, then, Johnny says when we spoke to him this week that he's leaving now because he feels like he's completed a certain number of big projects that have been trained for quite some time in terms of Apple's internal projects. That means the move to apple park, its new headquarters that he designed along with jobs in Norman foster and also that comes with it a sort of a new setup full that design studio, which has brought together, not just industrial design, which is perhaps what we think of Johnny. And Appleford Demery the sort of the physical hardware, it self, but bringing in interaction designers, font, designers people think about different ways in which we touch tap fail. Whatever comes out of the software, and the jets themselves, and that's been working progress. Full a very long time. It's a multibillion dollar projects. I think Johnny said the in Steve Jobs. I talked about it in two thousand four as they were walking through high park in London. I think there is also a secondary question around what motivates, Johnny himself, and why he feels like this. Moment where he wants to branch out and do things he's not going to be quizzing, working with apple together. He won't be an employee anymore, but they will retain his offices to advise on design and strategy and product innovations. But he will no longer be restricted to just doing technology. Now, he's not saying an awful lot about what else he is going to do with this new venture that he starting, but one can imagine that, that might run from anything from peaceful expensive pieces of jewelry or furniture to something completely different. He's bringing with him Newson, who's another apple designer in a longtime collaborator of Janis who worked on plain interiors and cars and watches. So the resources inside apple almost unlimited, but the canvas is somewhat constrained. And so maybe he just feels after twenty five years, he wants to do something different. Do you think that the nature of the company's changing Matt, that it's something that has been so aesthetic lead and design lead, and that you can move the world in order to achieve your vision, but apple is necessarily becoming more about services and expensive video streaming? Software perations than hardware, certainly. I think that's a big part of it. I mean, the smartphone market is maturing new competitors in China and undercutting the sorts of things. Apple does. It's still by far and away the biggest part of its business, but it's not growing as quickly as it used to in the big pot. With more. Potential is services, as you say, in video and music and other things. How much influence can one person is used to sculpting, beautiful objects have on a sort of the'real, intangible business light services? Yeah. I think that's right. I mean, the apple line has always been that actually what makes the iphone specialists, not just the hardware combination of hardware, and software and services. And although Johnny started as an industrial designer he did take over software GT's as well. And he has a guy I think he was seven he sort of strip that back made it much minimalist lot flatter. Got rid of some of the faux leather, textures and sort of ring binder stuff that you had in the original I find as it came out. And so he's proved that he can't do software as well. But I guess we haven't seen from apple a right through. In things like Siri and virtual assistance and artificial intelligence. And although some of that is roar engineering and technology and not scenario where Google has lost more data that can pull on apple does, it is also a question of how humans interact with technology and the way Siri works just isn't as good as Alexa, or Google assistant. Do you think any of this is down two pups getting a little booed? I mean being the same place for such a long time, having such influence sees the company, moving in a slightly different direction. And it's now time to think about things a living technology. I think twelve plus years of iphones. A ni- becoming evermore. It's relative. I do think the must be sort of sense of you. Here we go again. They obviously look a long way ahead many years, aheads. And so he will know that the car the small classes, and whatever is coming in health next that we expect all brewing in those labs. He'll be involved in those and we'll continue to be, I think, but the must be something that you just want to try something completely different. And when I spoke to him he. Talked a little bit about wanting sort of try and find that space and clear at to think of new ideas and get different kinds of crisis stimulating, he talks a lot about the creative process, rather than just the products that come out at the end of them. And I did get a sense that maybe just felt like he was on a bit of a treadmill and never really got the kind of free space to roam, and he won't. He's coming along way from his humble beginnings, and fully embrace the Californian lifestyle very much site. Boy, from ching food is, yeah, we're done good. Yeah. I'm might be overrun meant citing. This is a frequent problem. But I have this very Ben bradlee Katharine Graham view of Steve Jobs, and Johnny. I building this company together with the creative, tension partnership. It's going on. Yeah. Yep. This a whole soundtrack, and that somehow, you know, won't Steve Jobs wins the company's inevitably drifted onto Tim to be bit more corporate, and most structurally lead in poor Janis. Aesthetic vision has been forced out. I think this must be something to that, for sure. Say that just soon delivered or no? I mean it was opponent ship. I think they would both Joe's still here. He would say, I mean, they were collaborators the like of which is not been seen, and they had lunch together every day jobs was constantly in the design studio. I asked him cook, you know, how often he goes, and he says. Well, I'm I'm very busy. I goes offense like hand every it doesn't sound like the having lunch together. And so, I think that's on the other hand, you know, the apple watch and the airports, and the sort of whole push into wearable, technology, was definitely a post jobs endeavor that process began in two thousand twelve and so, although the watch got a very lukewarm reception. When it started it has become a bit business. I think the uphold similarly people like why does that little dribble of toothpaste, look like sticking out of my, but now they've sort of almost become their own viral phenomenon and that's not just him. That's the whole team of people that work in design. They've proven that they can do something beyond. Now, I guess what we haven't seen, and frankly, may never see from apple is something as big as the iphone, I guess. That sort of thing that hangs over, and I again, also Johnny about that. And he said, well, I didn't show success by numbers. It's more about the ideas and the satisfaction and the little invisible things that we do that people not licensed. Their lives are being made better. That's fine. That would have appealed, Steve Jobs and possibly note. That have from I haven't, I mean, you've referred to the initial skepticism move up at ports when the MAC book, the latest book in the keyboards that don't work nasal. Hooky. Stand the thousand. Well, I didn't I mean Johnny might sleep that is the pinnacle of his achievements. The monitor stemmed pros what he's spending his time doing. Yeah, I think I think the bigger question behind all of this is who makes decisions about which apple products come out and see the light of day and rightly or wrongly that was always singularly associated with jobs. He was the one he said million dollars and a few yeses, and I think Johnny has sort of taken on that role. But maybe not how that sounding board, the he had when jobs was alive. And I think Tim cook is a fantastic operator. He's a fantastic diplomats, which is a very important role for apple at the moment. But yeah, you don't get that sense that he's energized by the spark of an idea. And how do we nurture this? He wants to know when it comes out the other side, how to make it in huge volumes and how to make a big success. But who after Johnny his left full-time apple is actually making that decision is not clear. And they say it's many people that I knew were talking about designed by committee. Which put on the spot come they flourish without him. Well without him is this open question? I mean he's starting this new venture called love from or one word. It has been in California alone, time has has done so love from we'll have apple as its first client, and he says that he wants to be sort of very closely involved for very, many years. But up until now Apple's had him ultimate cells. And so I think that there are other questions around whether upward flourish, which I think, in the short-term, have much more to with the China US trade war, and how many people in China's still wants by phones. Whether China will still be where I finds a maid or whether they have to move production out wholesale which is very complicated and expensive. And so the iphone franchise will continue with or without Johnny. I think, and it's hard to sort of say how closely involved, he's been in the phone, but he is a call not. He's a judge at the Goodwood festival of speed he likes 'cause he wanted to buy McLaren for awhile. Yes. That was a scoop. He was. Was enough teeth story. So yeah, but you kind of wonder what that I mean that definitely spending lots of money exploring Wilson autonomous vehicle can do and how it will work. But what does that actually look like? And whether Johnny has the right person to design, not as a fan of traditional calls or whether you need someone with a completely blank slate. I mean, they're all those argue that actually this is the right moment to really shake up monument, apple more, generally, we see Angela errands, leave the head of retail. They've Bruce in a very senior artificial intelligence engineer from Google to oversee machine learning where they have been weak. And you know, maybe this will create a new kind of air film. They certainly have the resources that disposal to kind of feel holds write them off. Big question for apple so Jonathan's off to become a yacht interior designer whatever he's going off today. But in the big ranking of Google Facebook, Amazon Apple who's now on top. Does this make any difference fathom? Well Microsoft right now is the world's most valuable company in the only one of the big Silicon Valley companies that is worth more than a trillion. Never talk about, Microsoft his quite has quite boring. I mean. I mean I find Amazon is such juggernaut right now and seems to have that carefree spirit of innovation and experimentation, which has been quite the opposite of how apple has worked where you sort of very deliberately and secretly come up with something. And then launch it into the world as technology expands into every for lives. I feel like Amazon is perhaps, the most dynamic of that group that doesn't currently at least have the privacy baggage, a Facebook or Google might have all the sort of legacy problems of. We've we still have iphone sales that make up two-thirds of our revenues. And how do we ever get out from under that? Do you think that's right? Yeah. I think I'm clearly motiva- are ascendant. And they have been in the ascendancy for some time and apple has its own struggles
"perations" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Championships in a game six against the mighty Golden State Warriors, but at the warriors will be a little less mighty without their superstar, Kevin Durant who ruptured his achilles tendon in his first game back after being out from month with a calf injury. Durant himself has said he wanted to be back out on court that night, but the injury has raised questions about whether Durant was ready to return and whether he was pressured to come back to soon. Joining me to discuss all this is Dave Zairean. He's a sports editor for the nation magazine and host of the edge of sports podcast. Dave, thanks so much for being with us go. Thanks for having me. All right. So walk me through how Kevin Durant, or other players even get approved play who is responsible for putting them on the court after an injury. Well, it's interesting because a lot of time it depends on the stature of the player themselves, and the sport itself. But in this particular case, you're talking about Kevin Durant. Who's in? Established thirty year old superstar. And so what you're going to have is the team and their medical staff issued their judgments in conjunction with the coaches and the team president. But factored into it will also be Kevin Durant, and his push or desire or agency to want to play. So unbalanced is possible to say, like which way that tension tends to go, whether it's towards putting him on the court or holding back out of caution. Well, I think that the, the if we're if we're talking about blame, which is really what we're talking about here. I think it has to start with the team itself and the medical staff of the team because the player is always going to want to play. I mean you're talking about a group of some of the most competitive people on earth. And then Kevin Durant. You have that top one percent of this group of the most competitive people on earth. They're gonna wanna take the court. So oftentimes, the goal of any medical doctor in this sort of situation is to protect a player again. Themselves. Now oftentimes, though, a team doctor and this is comes from talking to many players about this. They have dual loyalties, they're not exactly operating by the terms of the Hippocratic oath. Because their their, their job is to get a player on the court. Their job is not the health and wellbeing of the player themselves. Now you've been talking about blame here is Golden State Warriors president of basketball operations. Bob Myers after the game Monday talking about blamed himself. He was cleared to play tonight, those a collaborative decision. I don't believe there's anybody to blame. But I understand this world. And if you have to. You can blame me. I run our best ball perations department said, Dave do top brass like Bob Myers need to accept responsibility for injuries like this. Absolutely. And I'm not thrilled with the way he said it with you have to blame. Somebody blame me, you know, this idea of, well, it's really on, you who's looking to blame someone because that to me felt like a passing of the buck as opposed to actually taking responsibility. But at the end of the day, it's the team that's sent him out there, and it's the team that has to take responsibility for what place do players in the NBA ever seek second opinions from doctors outside the team's payroll. Or are they just? Tell me about, they do by but it, it's fraught with a great deal of tension because then you're saying that you don't trust the team themselves or their doctors, and in one of the most high profile examples of this, you don't have to look further than the NBA finals themselves because the whole reason that I Leonard the best player in the series is starring for the Toronto Raptors and not for the team that he was with beforehand. The San Antonio. Spurs was precisely because he saw an outside analysis for the leg problems that he was having, and the team was very upset with that. And it created this tension where they wanted Colli, Leonard on the court and he basically sat out in entire season because his own personal doctor said that that was in his best interest. And then he found himself out of San Antonio, and that's probably not a choice that people who are not the biggest stars in the league necessarily take if they're desperate to, to remain employed. I guess Aroon you're hitting. Nail absolutely on the head because it's entirely a question of stature of profile and whether or not other teams will say you know what? I don't care if this person marches to the beat of their own drummer, they're that good tick, the risk on obviously not every player can say that. Dave siren is the sports editor for the nation magazine, and host of the age of sports podcast. Dave, we made it through this injury free. Thanks a lot for joining us. Thank.
Education and basic services for West Bankat riskwarns UNrefugeereliefagency
"This is Connor Lennon for you. In news. Unless more emergency funding is received by the end of this month, the UN relief agency for Palestine refugees, or unr- said on cheese day that forty six thousand children will be able to start the new school year along with major cuts to health and other basic services. The warning comes from Gwen Lewis director of unr- operations in the West Bank, who was at u n headquarters with her counterpart in Gaza twelve line. The continuing funding crisis stemming from the United States decision to withdraw support last year in an interview with you a news Matt wells. She praised the solidarity in support of the international community since the US decision insisting the agency is using its funds, very wisely ahead of a key pledging conference in New York on the twenty fifth of June. We are facing significant financial challenges on one side, we have our core funding, which is extremely important for the running of. Schools. We have nine thousand four schools in the West Bank as well as for two health centres refund social services program sanitation program. So an integrated support for the Palestinian refugee community in the West Bank and, and funding for that program across all of the five fields in which on your works is really critical and we're reaching a funding crisis as of the end of June. So we have a big pledging conference at the end of June. So we're coming here to highlight some of those financial challenges and on the other side is the emergency response. In the territories, we, we have a big funding gap in Gaza. But also in the West Bank because of the the, the very high rates of violence in the West Bank. We're trying to respond to increase levels of child attention and issues around a tear gas inhalation and violence in the come. So we're looking for funding for that. And for the, the object poor. Police in the West Bank. So what kind of impact has the withdrawal of funding mainly from the US, of course, last year had on unresolved perations during the past few months, so we were lucky because after the US decided to cut their funding last year. There was incredible solidarity from the international community. So in addition to. Over forty countries supporting additional funding, and we also made efficiency in our overall spending on on our programs. So we were able to receive end of the year and maintain all of our services, but it really did have an impact on how the services are managed. We had to increase the class size for example, and because we couldn't replace all of the teachers that we needed when they retired and the same with the number of patients per doctor is higher than it was before am and in the West Bank, we had we lost about one hundred and fifty colleagues hundred fifty staff who were not to be laid off had to be laid off. Yes. And because of, of cuts in the funding oversee the challenges, you face in the West Bank, different from those in Gaza in some ways, less acute. But nonetheless, throw sewage challenges that you are having to do with just, just outlined, some of, you know, the very practical ways in which serves his all going to have to be further cut unless you get more money. And if we were not to receive more funding. And we wouldn't be able to open the schools in September, which would be very, very serious. I mean, we have forty six thousand children in our schools in the West Bank. So it would have a huge impact on the community and but also on basic Helzer, healthcare, and primary healthcare is one of our core activities on that means doctors, and nurses, would no longer be available to the community. Social welfare payments, wouldn't be paid to about sixty thousand families, and we wouldn't be able to do garbage collection in the camp, which, you know, seems relatively trivial. But when you have nineteen camps, and people are there to pick up the garbage on the whole sanitation and, and, and safety and health is linked to that, it, it, it has a huge impact on the community. What's different about unwrap as compared to other UN agencies is that the majority of our staff are implementing on the ground. So ninety five percent of them are Palestinian refugees themselves that are providing services directly, so their teachers and doctors and nurses, and social workers so cuts in funding means they will no longer be able to work, so money's really not being wasted. It's all going to those people who are the most in need. Absolutely. What, what last year did was made us really look at fishing season and reduce costs where we could. But this is limited that and there's only so many cuts that you can make without really impacting on. On services to people, and there's only so many children, you can fit into a classroom without being melodramatic. What would the consequences be if unreleased to provide these services in the West Bank, when the, the big concern is one, one does the very human level of people losing their jobs? This four thousand stuff in the West Bank, and, but then obviously, the impact on services on the community and on their families because they would have no longer any income. But then there are other repercussions in terms of stability. Would there be civil unrest, in the West Bank, potentially, and what would be the bigger consequences? There are eight hundred thirty thousand refugees in the West Bank. So almost certainly would have a negative impact on what is ready situation of political gridlock right now, in terms of the peace process and the whole push towards a two-state solution. Absolutely. And not only that, but the Palestinian Authority itself is really facing a financial situation now because the income tax has they're not accepting the income tax from Israel. So the they're not able to pay full salaries. They don't have a budget to be able to. Respond to any additional needs. So it really would be a crisis. Do you have any particular message for the authorities both in terms of the in the West Bank itself, and Israel, the, the big requests is, is really, to reach somehow some kind of a peace agreement. I mean, that's what we all would like an honor and doesn't want to be in the West Bank for another seventy years. We would much rather that it was a peace solution reached, and then we could no longer be necessary in the West Bank really am really want to highlight is a level of solidarity and support that we've received over the last year Israeli incredible, and from the international community, but also from individuals who are supporting on run just to, to say that we're using that money, very, very wisely. And it really is about educating children, and, and providing really basic services to communities that are impact on a daily basis by by the accumulation.
Renault FCA merger set to reshape global car industry
"Fair Chrysler, automobiles, has unveiled a proposed thirty point six billion euro, al-sham measure with Renault that would we shape, the global automative industry, David Atlee discusses, how the jail came about and how it will affect Renos prepares tired with Nissan with Irish masugi and Peter Campbell. Rush tennis about the two men who engineered the deal when did the talk start. And how did the deal come together? Okay. If tickets step back and just imagine that in the last three or four years in the car industry, all the major players were talking to each other. Part of this thesis, was driven by the former CEO, the late CEO of Fiat Chrysler automobiles Sergio Marconi passed away last July, but had written this manifesto called confessions of capital junkie, where he called for consolidation for a number of reasons in the car industry, and he was, in many ways, the chief, confidant of John Elkin who runs the nearly family empire through an investment vehicle called Exor, which is the dominant shareholder and Fiat Chrysler. And so with Mark Janas death Elkin really steps into this role that normally would have been played by any number of special executives brought in by the family over the years to help exercise their interests. But Elkin really stepped into this role and then began taking charge and making a series of moves one. Those moves was to begin conversations with Renault about various things those conversations really took off, when John Dominic scenarist was brought in January to become the Renault chairman, and stabilize the company, which had been going through tumultuous period after the arrest of Carlos gone in Tokyo in November, the meetings between scenario and Alcon took place throughout the spring in Paris, and Turin at their various homes, and then in the last few weeks, what began as talks about cooperation in a broader partnership really shifted into something else, which was a full merger did call us gone have any role in trying to put together such a merger when he was headed. It's run into San Peter and the rest of the team who's been covering the gun fall out reported in March that Nissan had looked at FCA in the past three years in something that was pushed by Goan. It's not clear to what extent he actually wanted to do that. But at the time he was very much more focused on. Combining rhino with Nissan when it became clear that, that deal was not possible to scenario who had replaced gun, the conversations with Elkin really took off, and in centered Elkin found someone who is more mild mannered, who's more classically European traditional very smooth and diplomatic not an ego maniac, not a big character. Which is typically, what defines many of the big auto chief executives Goan would certainly be seen someone who was imperious character. And so in Senator, there was someone who is much easier to deal with. And I think that probably played a major role because Elkins manners is very sort of genteel in European if you want a risk Socratic, and so that dynamic probably helped make this happen. So you could actually save the absence of gone to some extent, maybe even absent Marconi made this deal easier to engineer. So where does that lead us what are the terms on? What will be the balance of power between each side, so it's a fifty fifty stock deal. So the shareholders in Chrysler wife. Fifty percent stake in a new company, which will be a Dutch registered company and Reynaud shareholders will have fifty percent that essentially means that everyone's shareholdings in the two existing companies will be cut in half. So extra will become the most dominant shareholder with about a fifteen percent stake, the French state, and Japan's Nissan which have fifteen percent of Renault. They will have seven and a half percent in the new company and there will be others who have smaller state, but that's largely the three dominant shareholders. That's why John Elkin will become the non executive chairman of the company and at least for the time being is believed that scenario will become the chief executive. But we'll see how that shakes out of the coming years theme what will is still mean for the industry, and can we expect further consolidation. Yeah. I think the message is yes, but the trick is, it's very hard. The industry is beset with big egos with national pride with unions with manufacturing jobs and the core. Thesis behind this is shutting down factories and firing people. So that is a really hard thing to. Swallow layer that in with the fact that you getting some kind of scale through consolidation layer that in with governments that will want to say to try to protect their jobs. And so you have a very difficult dynamic now concurrently to these talks with Reynaud Fiat was talking to pizzo of France. And obviously those talks have fallen apart hoettges looking stilted at the altar a bit. So the question is, what do they do next and Nissan, which at the moment, just looks like a basket case is also left with some questions to ponder upon for the future. But all the major car companies are watching this with great interest at the moment, so he can we then tune to what do we think. With the cost savings, be and will this mean job losses, the Irish alluded to? So the terms set out yesterday were quite clear in the deal. They envisage being able to do this merger without any plump closures now that may sound ambitious, but remember a few years ago, PSA, Persia took over opo and said they would have a turnaround program and integration program, evolve, no plunk closures and brutally. They haven't closed any plants, so. Oh, it's certainly possible to do that. FCA talked about possible cost savings of around five billion euros from combining various things such as purchasing an RND with Renna. But what they're most likely it's do is to avoid additional cost. One of the reasons comic is trying to tie up is because so many of them have such massive investment costs in future technology, think about something like electric vehicles, something like driverless, technology, and Sergia, Makia, knees, onset to or this was, it's much better for comic is to pool resources and spend this money together, rather than old, Joop locating their investment. And so what this does mean is that FCA and Reynaud, if they come together, we'll only have to spend one load of money on developing electric vehicles, rather than say, two now Renos already the European leader in electric vehicles as the biggest selling electric model in Europe and fit Kryza is generally regarded as a lag Auden electric technology and say, we'll hopefully be able to take in some of Renos electric technology. So they'll be looking for cost savings in various areas such as that. And how much will this merger weaken Nissen's bizarre? Mission within the alliance with Renault currently the way that the alliance is set up is that Reynaud Misawa each have equal representation on the alliance operating board says two seats for Japan. That's Nissim officially in two seats for froms. That's the Reynaud CEO and the Reynaud champion his John, Giannis Sonat, and what this will undoubtedly mean. We don't know what this will mean for the aligns board but is almost certainly going to mean that FCA has a seat at that table. It means that Nissan's influence in overall terms will decrease across the alliance, but actually, the view is that Nissan may perceive parts of this deal is incredibly positive for them, one of the conditions the FCC set during these talks with Renna was the any plans to merge renaissance should be shelved for the time being in order to let Nissen and to some extent, Renos wealth focus on they call business because Nissan's core businesses. Not in great shape seeing a huge slide in it sales in the US as saying fools in China. It's really struggling in some of its logo operations and a lot. Of the phone out of the Costco, no arrest and the questions over the future of the alliance and all the shenanigans about would they merge? Would they not merge has been distracting missiles, management, and frankly, Renos management, as well from the day-to-day operations of the business? So the hope is that by putting that issue to bed for the time being it will allow listen to focus on that day today or perations and not sexy is one thing that's been put in that to try and win over Nishantha supporting this deal in short, then that could be benefits finish San in this new alliance with key be so the long term, what if CA is open to doing is having a full on merger with miss sandwich would create by a very long way the world's largest car company with around fifteen million sales, and that would give them huge scale and therefore numerous potential to invest in a lot of the new future technology a much greater resilience in a very cyclical bumpy industry to be able to weather the storms now. That's more long term in the short term suddenly what Nissim would hope is that it just takes the potential of emerge Reynaud off the table. It lets them focus on the business. Which is something they need to do in order to be able to remain competitive in the future turning to another very important stakeholder in this how have investors responded? What has their view been safe, all say, if you look at the Shatt prices the shaft prices of FCA anniversary both rose incredibly strongly yesterday on Monday when the deal was announced, both rose more than ten percent, investors. See this broadly as positive, but there are lots of questions over the Deel. There were lots of questions over whether call makers need to have global scale, which this will give the companies or whether it's better to focus on getting scale instead of half an individual regions like someone like Persia has done with the OPEL deal because what this won't give Reynaud or FCA is much greater scale in any given regions. They have a bit of overlap in Europe, the market, share, at the end of this deal will be about sixteen percent in Europe. So it increases this state bat. But in terms of that Sharon other markets, there wasn't a great deal of overlap, so they won't be the biggest player in major global markets. They operate in. And so there's a. Question about whether they really need regional scale, or whether they need global scale, lots of other questions around merges, and particularly auto mergers that cross borders in general around company, coaches, we've seen a lot of mergers, in the past the famous one is diamond Chrysler go on for a few years, and then just collapsed because they don't work. That's almost never because of industrial issues political issues. It's almost always because of deeply ingrained, cultural issues, car companies are very cultural animals often rooted in the country, that, that headquartered in and say trying to put together a company that has not just a talion in US culture from fat Chrysler, but French culture from rhino, and ultimately, possibly Japanese culture from Nissen as quite a melting pot. If you're trying to put it all together, so there are two questions over this deal. You've mentioned some, but do you see any particular hurdles, is it the cultural is it the regulation is the politics that could prevent this top, the biggest one of the moment is whether Reynaud agrees to it. So while Reynolds, Chavan, John Donnie Senate has. Been in talks with Alcon for a long time over this and in recent weeks about the merger and FCA has put this proposal to Reynaud Renos still has to agree to it. The French state her fifteen percent of Reynaud behalf double voting rights. Still have to agree to it. Nissan, even though they don't have a blocking vote on this still need to agree. You have the Italian government saying that it wants to protect talion jobs. The French government won't to protect French jobs is going to be very political. We still don't know what the locations of this deal are for the specifics of Renos relationship with Nissen, particularly if it'll affect some of their past contracts together. And so there are a lot of things that could potentially derailed the deal. So it's not a slam dunk by any measure, but the language of FCA and the fact that they're leaders of work closely with Renos leaders over the last few weeks to nail this down. Does at least suggest that there is goodwill on both sides, and both of them it is in their interest to do this deal to make it work.

"perations" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"The most important thing is there a secondary star that comes if not can the young guys emerge more, which I think they can can get a couple of shooters like so byrant me. I'm not. Vogel to me is very much acceptable for this these he's got a track record agree. I think players like infamous seems to be pretty sharp and then kid can add certain elements. But I to me how they build the roster still is going to supersede this election between these couple coaches, I think that is probably the most important thing. But I think something that overrides that right now still who is going to be president basketball perations, why think robs the one that's going to be ultimately tricking that taking well, he's he's the GM still right? Title. He's the ones going to be next Vogel. I think on the interest. I'm under the impression that robs the guy. That's making those calls for basketball. You gotta make that decision one way or another. I mean, if they not going to are if they're going to elevate rob to that position, you know, hopefully, sooner or later, we're here that announcement. But after that is done agree with far this summer to roster is huge because you have to get there. There are so many top free agents this year that have a chance that could come to Los Angeles. You have to get one of those guys, and I don't necessarily think that has to be the upper echelon of a free agent. But that that be classic free agents is pretty damn good as well. And if you can get one or two of those guys go alongside LeBron you still have a team that can make some noise in the Western Conference. I coming up next. We've got a surprise for you. And it involves Magic Johnson. Yes, sir. I'll tell you about that in four minutes Sudan show here on ESPN LA. Byron Scott, Mike Trudell in the house today. We will take you till six o'clock tonight as we turn it over to game one of the Western Conference finals between the warriors and blazers but at five thirty right here, we are going to have the draft lottery live, hopefully, the Lakers get a little luck with coups in the seat that Byron one sat in on that draft day ass- throw coup Vira deliver. That's right. I live. Okay. What you say? I deliver in the lottery got the lottery. Yeah. Got the second pick. Yeah. All right crew. You're going to do man, right. Yeah. Shoot. One them jump is knocking down come on. Now, exactly. The number one pick. So I want you to top me. Don't don't don't don't be like. The top me get the number one pick. Yeah.

So Richard tell us a little bit about the new products that giggles unveiling this week, it is developed a conference, and how do they fit in with this idea that there should be more privacy for uses? Well, say nice surprise that I which has been front and center sentence. Google, you know, two or three is is really playing the major pod in most of its new products and services, and it's very much been the story this week. You know, I think one of the interesting things, by the way is that Google is making promises now things that in some cases, quite ready to ship. It always used to be. This was a I love him fringe in is people's nj with stand up and shake things. They go working and we're about to come out, and you could literally. Of touch it and feel it and you knew what was coming. Google is now slipping more into showing concepts ideas, trying to shape people's sense of where it's going say some of this stuff you can use now some of in the future. One thing you can use now is a screen that has a camera in it a small scream fuel home. Now, that's important. I think because Google is racing Amazon Facebook and others to try and put this kind of intelligent device in your kitchen in the middle of your home. They provided a camera before. Now, they stuck a camera on it. The camera can look at you and recognize you installed to interact with the more naturally. So that's one kind of idea. I plays a part. I think the other and this is slightly longer age is Google's assistant, which is in many ways. It's most to teach it important services, the intelligent agent, that's meant to sit in everything and help you through your life. The intelligent agent is going to learn a lot more about you. You're going to be able to feed it with more of your personal details, and it'll just be able to on the. Stand. You have a compensation do more for you. And it all sounds incremental. But you know, these things could have to begin fact hang on thought sounds a little bit like giggles gonna know even more about me. And my life's going to be even less private. What about this privacy that Mr. peach is talking about the trade off? I think what we have to realize is just about everything Google is doing now depends on sucking out more dates that or at least you giving access to more positive live. And I posted this machine learning, which is the main technique in these days relies on Dale to train algorithms using an awful lot of data. And then giving those algorithms access to as much information about you as they can get. So that they can then vise you and help you make decisions say there's a really deep level of trust needed at the same time. They surprised that it's talking about these needs services. Google's say saying, look we. Could all these extra privacy controls in protections for you trust us, and for a big tech company right now to stand up and say trust is he's obviously could be a real shame moment. Bright will the rule sort of saying trust the Sunday because you know, hearing this little similar tune from Facebook and apple and Microsoft about how the rule very concerned with privacy. Now, do you think we should does Google deserve our trust? And what's it doing to earn? Trust. Well, Google's calculation hit is that it's an different position to Facebook Facebook. It is develop a conference last week really has been emphasizing a completely new product direction. So Mark Zuckerberg has been saying we went say much in public the news feed in Facebook, which has been the century of your life. But so long that won't be in future. It'll be private messaging talking to small groups of people in more controlled settings. That's really going to be the future. So I think Facebook to regain trust is really pushing ahead with entirely new product directions. Kinko's calculation is different. Google is betting that people still trusted hasn't had the same privacy problems that Facebook has had there's obviously deep concern about targeted advertising. How much does Google no house easing that information to target advertising? And he's getting that information, but at the same time people still use them trust all of Google services. They haven't seen any. Wolof in usage on their calculation is as we made this stuff more useful people will continue to give us that day to whatever the underlying political tone of the moment is so that pushing ahead, but they are ramping up the privacy in not just the rhetoric. Goodwill says some privacy technologies. Right. So that saying that use a data will also delete. You can set the amount of time. You can have it before they have to delete it and also location, and you can do more incognito browsing whether or not collect information on you. I mean is this window dressing? Should we take it seriously? Well, so we will know the few people at Chinni set controls that way. And I think the important thing is Google isn't resetting. It's defaults. It isn't automatically putting these controls on your data privacy is giving you the power to do it. And most people don't do that. So they awareness. I think he's rising and some people will take advantage of this. Most people went. So I think a degree of skepticism is Rudy annoy too because the bigger picture is the Google's business model depends on massive data connection. This will affect things around the edges, but it's not going to change the real core business. And so I think they will quite rightly be an I have been complaints from privacy experts. He say what's the difference right now? The second thing that he talked a little bit about was this idea of a happening on the device rather than data being uploaded to the cloud for to occur. What do you think of that? I think this is a really promising direction, and I think it's absolutely necessary for two reasons I mean, one is simply the in the future will heading tool, and there is going to be so much data collected. And we're going to want to be able to use it and access it and apply. It say rapidly third channeling it all to these volts data centers that the internet companies run and then price hilar- then. Funneling? The results back to hand says he's just going to be very burdensome and slow even with high speed networks. Too many ways. Google engineers are driven by convenience. They want something to work just much faster. And so they can design algorithms which they're now doing that can run on a handset rather than demanding server in a data center, they can just make life much more efficient. So this technology is any really started to become practically in the last six months to year that starting to push it onto handset. Now. Of course, the byproduct of that is that a lot of you will data considered on your phone, or whatever it is. It doesn't go to Google Google doesn't see it. So I think this is a model of competing that. We should all welcome. However, could go hasn't really said what is goes. I hear how much data will it keep private how much would it ship to the data center. What can we expect in the long run? But at least it's an encouraging kind of architectural shifting computing one of the things that Google talked about was building in. In some sort of adblocker into chrome its web browser. So that cookies wouldn't be able to track people as they browse. Now that seems like something that gives us competitive doing. But then again, Google's competitors. Don't also make a little money from advertising on the web. How does that fit with Google's model? This isn't an adblocker doesn't stop adverts getting into your browser. But what it does is? He says it starts people saying these cookies little bits of code into your browser. So they can secretly watch way you go around the web and then use that to send advertising to you. Now apple is very much been making the running here. Epilepsy doesn't depend on advertising and say they've felt quite able to go ahead and put much greater cookie controls into their in browser on the iphone and Google is. I think responding party to that. And then not getting far as apple this again is an optional thing fees, but Google's browser is a source of massive data collection for the ad tech industry. These are the many. Data gatherers and technology companies. The basically have created an entire industry, very Paik industry. That collects Arado cuts it out macaws it out and resells it for Google to crack down on this to some degree is a really interesting moment. They worried about this for a long time in many ways they've wanted to crack down on it because it has a bad reputation. But to do that sends a particular message because effectively googly squashing the competition is preventing data getting to other companies that want to sell advertising, which should costs will help Google services and how Google's appetizing. So I wouldn't be surprised if we get some real complaints from the rest of the online appetizing district about is Google is cleaning it up, but cleaning it out means will power more money to Google. And how of the privacy campaign is reacted to what they've been saying. Well, it didn't think anyone's going to cut go much slack amendment where the end of a decade now in which is Google and Facebook, the main collect his data for advertising have made all kinds of premises. They've given us old kinds of controls to protect their data better and yet then are widely perceived as just perations consumers of information. And there's still too little real transparency about how that data sloshes around in the advertising system. So new surprise. You know, the privacy advocates is saying we need government government needs to act, and I think there's a real momentum starting to build in Washington. So I didn't think anything Google's going to do is gonna track from legislation regulation.
"perations" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Monocle Daily
"Possession of semester. Pull port recreated the dolphin program. And here's the best part when Russia took Crimea. It also took the dolphins. And here's the best headline from from the whole Ukraine Russia conflict. Russia demands return of combat dolphins from Russia. Ukraine demands return combat dolphins from Russia. So this is this is very much high politics. In many ways in which the story has contributed greatly to the UT of nations over the last twenty four hours is that it has I it's it's brought to the surface, no pun necessarily intended. I did get most of those out of my system Midori house earlier, but the history of using sea creatures as weapons of war in effect. Does it still go on what it does with these programs, although both Russia and the Soviet Union, and the US beckon were very keen to stress that they don't use the or didn't use the the the dolphins for offensive purposes? So it's not like the US navy would send out dolphins to kill enemies swimmers, but they are very much part of of naming perations still in the US. Still the US navy has its marine mammal basin in San Diego can go and see them for yourself. What we understand about what a Royal or a dolphin or seal or anything else of that ilk can do that machinery. Or people can't so dolphins. Have extremely good sooner abilities, as you know. So they can detect things underwater that that humans and machines cannot detect. That's why they are used for for these duties of locating or finding enemy swimmers. So you can imagine special operations for sending in divers to for example, put explosives in in your port, and then you have your your dolphins guarding the port, and they will find those swimmers and essentially report back that there are mysterious going on. And so that's extremely useful. And and also, they're they're very good skills. That's finding mines. But of course, we should remember it's we should remember. It's not just marine mammals. It's other animals as well dogs, and elephants and mules that have helped humans a great deal in wars past. Certainly the case militarily impressive though. All of that is is there possibly anything at all to my own pet theory, not just about this to a lot of activities attributed to Russia that they just do this stuff. Really just a screw with people. I think there is something things you Andrew, but on the on the more serious points. So in the autumn of last year in November. I think animal rights activists discovered. What was essentially a whale prison in eastern Russia run by some sort of private operator a hundred Wales kept in captivity there for sale to Chinese buyers in the quorums around the world, and my theory is this whale could be one of them will just finally as you've pointed out there is there is a there's a long history of animals various sorts being used by militaries and clearly is still some amount of the use of sea creatures in particularly. Used by militaries. Is there much discussion among military people about the ethics of that? Or do they still approach this in a purely utilitarian fashion? So the practice has changed very much since the time of Alexander, the great now one would hope. And by the way, we shouldn't forget that few minutes from wherever sitting there is even a memorial to war animals. That have served in centuries over the years in in various wars. So the practice has changed today. It's there is great care placed on on the well being of the animals when we should remember. For example, the dogs have served.
Service and Sacrifice: Irish forces in Golan well trained to deal with challenging situations
"Rish military personnel. Serving under the UN flag in the Golan Heights. If been well trained to deal with challenging situations, according to the head of the contingent there there are one hundred thirty I rish nationals, including seven women currently deployed to the Wendy's engagement observer force that you went peacekeeping mission which was established in one thousand nine seventy four to monitor ceasefire between Israel and Syria. Many have served previously in other UN missions, including in Liberia, Lebanon, Kosovo, and Western Sahara, recently, the Irish contingent has been clearing mines. So that you enforce it can take positions again in areas, which had to be evacuated as a result of the civil war, which was taking place in Syria. Daniel Dickinson has been talking to the commander of the Irish forces Lieutenant Colin Lewis Flynn. I'm the contingent commander for the contingent which makes the fifty ninth if regroup on the we provide the Responsibility Act as the force observe. Company under the direct command of the enough force commander in order to achieve this task. And we maintain a credible in robust presence in the Golan to uphold the mandates and the Irish continued operates out of come forward. Which is where the force headquarters is located we maintain a quick Russia force and also reserve force within the amfar times, the quick reaction force is a small highly mobile unflexible force dot com. Respond to requests made by the force commander within fifteen minutes. Twenty four seven the requests can range from the evacuation of personnel from you in positions for various emergency reasons to routine patrols of the Bravo line on the east side of the areas of rain. The unisom also is self sufficient in that we have our engineering medical ordinance transport on the disk personnel who provides the capability for us to. To operate as in a self-sufficient manner. Are within our Mondays what role does the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force to give it it's it's official title. What role? Does it play? It's Mondays to maintain a credible presence in the Golan onto us best efforts to maintain the ceasefire between Israel on the Syrian Arab Republic. And to see the observed and what are the operating conditions like in in the region. I would put the operation conditions as challenging the area of perations is primarily focused on recall, the area separation between the alpha and Bravo lines. Both lines stretch for a distance of about seventy five kilometers from hermit in the north to the Jordanian border in the south area. Both lines in between. Both lines is known as the area's separation at the whitest point the area's operation stretches to nine kilometers, and is two hundred meters wide at the narrows point is that a particularly active area are the things. On every day, which peacekeepers need to react to on has over the last number of months has been reestablishing its its footprints in the area separation ju to the civil war which was on going in the area, the security situation deteriorated to such an extent that on withdrew most of its its presence from the area separation from the series from the Syrian side. Correct. They moved onto the side of the area separation until the last number months. We've moved back onto the onto the problem side and the Irish contingent is providing a level of engineer specialist search which we can go in and clear. Previously occupied a UN posts to ensure that all residents of war and Debbie are a safely cleared removed. So that can be occupied by UN forces. So that creates a challenging environment as technically difficult, but we have exceptionally well trained unqualified personnel to do those tasks wise it. Important for Ireland to contribute to on of I suppose since Arden's independence. We've been committed to a number of international bodies in the league nations between the world wars the UN after World War Two more recently the European Union on its predecessors at so it's a pragmatic assigned of our farm policy at a small state. So she's can commission on involve itself in the international order and provide a immeasurable presence in international peacekeeping on the world stage at wall sort of challenges do your troops face, especially those ones who who were on a UN peacekeeping mission for the first time. The first challenge is the the preparation on training is conducted at home before we deploy overseas normally takes approximately three months preparation period, where we'll go through the full remix of professional military training in the various specialities that we will bring with us. From dismounted infantry to the engineer specialist. Search teams to our ordinance disposal team our medical teams communications, so we can integrate fully as a robust mobile and competent enforce reserve and also getting understanding cultural or Stein of where we're going what we're going to do. And how we go about doing that an important in that is that we haven't ability to operate with our international partners owned the UN flying the other contingents within the on off mission. So that we can become more interoperable as we conduct operations. And but then there's also the personal Ed challenges even have obviously were leaving our friends and family behind in our in for for six six months tour, Judy. So there's an emotional price that personnel play. What do your men and women tell you about their experience serving as a as a blue helmet overall? I would say it's hugely positive 'em. They rise to the challenges by an allows of members of the arts festival will join the ability to to travel abroad to provide a real improvement in the conduct of the mandate admissions and to add a positive legacy to their service in the defence forces. So the professional satisfaction that they were saved and also the opportunity to operate with a multinational force, whom they wouldn't necessarily get the opportunity to operate with an also the exposure to a much wider civilian an NGO non-governmental organizations that operate in the area, we fully understand that the broadest level of peacekeeping and your mandate missions that military provide one elements of the solution and as far wider area covering call the comprehensive approach where all of the other. Non-governmental actors and aid agencies and provides support to the to to the to the wider conflict, and you're always benefit from not during experience seeing how people engage in tackle problems in a different way using a different lens of experience. So that's a huge using positive.
Saudi Aramco gets first credit rating ahead of bond debut
"Of the world's largest oil producers Saudi Aramco, it's being classified as a plus at Fitch on the rating side, it's the first public assessment of the credit quality as prepares for his debut to the international bond market Fitch. Also gave it an expected a plus rating that's the fifth highest investment grade. We've also had another couple of breaking lines come through from at Moody's Dave assigned a one that came through in the past couple of minutes dividends. Fifty eight point two billion dollars worth of dividends were paid to the Saudi government. That's good news for Mohammed bin Salman. And in terms of capex complex manager over at Saudi Aramco thirty five point one billion dollars in two thousand eighteen let's bring in our Middle East finance reporter, Matthew Martin is tracking the story. He's got more Green Bay's at anybody else in the newsroom, Matthew Martin breaking news app. So we're getting the details. Now, what do you make of the latest assessment? In terms of the headline assessment, relative to the other oil majors. Well, I think what's really interesting is the although most sort of some of the top line numbers you see around looking more profitable. When amazon. And. An apple and all of the other world's biggest companies start to dig down more compared to some of the other big all the prophet around goes producing per barrel. Sometimes it's not matching up to some of the other big oil companies and a big part of that is because Aramco faces this huge tax Bill that it has to pay which is a huge portion of what is funding the Saudi state? I mean, both rating agencies pointing out destroying liquidity position that Saudi Aramco has the question becomes how do they go about their financing plans and the next two to three years, especially the upcoming. Well, yeah, what we're saying is. The first glimpses we're getting of the balance sheet show, the very very little debt on there. And so leveraging up to pay for this to pave the acquisition of Sabbath is a very in some sort of a wise move for the Saudi states are due to pass across to the sovereign wealth fund. What we're saying from the rating agency saying they're expecting the sobbing acquisition to be paid for over a period of three years, and they're also expecting it to mainly come from free cash flow. So that's per perhaps indicating that the bond sales is not going to be there sixty nine billion dollars to pay for the full Savic acquisition. And maybe we're going to see something a lot smaller and Aramco actually working out the subject payoff over time from the free cash flow generated from perations it's going to be interesting to see in a world where rates are so low. That debate between using leverage at historically low rates for corporates versus using the cash given the fiscal position. Is called you're going to be making over the next couple of days and in terms of where where everybody's gonna tip their hat. Yeah. I mean, I think you know, exactly the Saudi Arabia's only just started coming out to the bond markets or the policy is and always had a fantastic reception from investors and Aramco. I think what's interesting is when you look at the ratings they have matched the Saudi Saudi sovereign. So when when they go out to the bond markets, are we going to see people are we gonna see investors willing to give Aramco which in the past. Whenever has borrowed Fritz projects around always been super price sensitive. They have driven banks and lenders and investors down down down in price. Because they think they are the greatest company in the world. One of the most profitable companies worked up a little bit. A little bit excited. Go on back finished. The question is going to be can they convince international bond investors now that they are better a better credit than the sovereign even the rating agencies have put them at the same

Mr. President, Are You A Russian Asset?
"Past few hours. Donald Trump has responded to two reports containing explosive accusations against him. We should point out. The president tweeted this quote, while just learned in the failing New York Times the corrupt former leaders of the FBI opened up an investigation on me this one from the Washington Post. It says there are no detailed records from any of the five meetings. Mr. Trump had with Russian president, flat the notion that President Trump is a threat to American national security is absolutely ludicrous. Devotion. Russia. I've been tougher on Russia than anybody else. Any other probably any the president period. Gonna ask you are you now or have you ever worked for Russia? Mr President, Mr president are you of Russian asset. I'm Arlene binding, John Louis, and this is revolution. We talked a lot about a lot of the mazing things on this podcast, John. But I think we have to market in our calendar that here we go. We just heard those words asked of the president of the United States of America asked on Fox News didn't really get an answer. But in a lot of people's minds, if we just kind of step back here and say, this is where we are the president of the United States was the subject of a counter intelligence investigation wondering if he was acting in the best interests of Russia crazy town in the. The best interests of Russia against the United States as part of what that story claims, and whether he was witting or unwittingly doing so and that investigation was launched and then it was folded into the Muller investigation. And we all obviously await for whatever we're gonna learn about that. But you're right. We've never had a situation like this where a question has been raised about the loyalty of a president of the United States towards his own country. And whether or not our chief adversary has their, you know, hands around his throat in some way, and that has been lurking in this issue for two years, but it's really coming to four. Now, it really really is. And it kinda changes things, and that's one of the areas we want to focus on today on whether or not this change is what we know about the investigation and the president of the United States in his ties to Russia, and we're gonna put it in context. Of course, you know, you and I thought we were going to be talking about. The other bombshell that Manafort now, we understand that Muller has information solid evidence that Manafort gave holing data to a Russian with intelligence Russian intelligence ties. So that that's huge was the head of the campaign. Now, we've got this. And then on the heels of this story Washington Post follows up with all the blank information. There is in a very strange way about every time. This president has met with Vladimir Putin. He's gone out of his way to get rid of any trail of evidence of what they discussed. It's an amazing H. One of these by itself is an amazing story the giving the polling data to former G or you agent who may still be working with Russian intelligence that by itself as you say would have been the story. Of the week this counter-intelligence ones bigger. But it now makes the Manafort thing make more sense, if the Trump peration is somehow tied in with Russia both in the campaign, and as an administration all these outreaches back and forth. For instance, Jared Kushner, asking the Russian ambassador if Jared could use the Russian embassy communication system to talk directly to Moscow will that that's a huge story it now fits in changing the platform at the Republican convention that could all fit a pattern of a cooperation between Trump and the Russians that we've never had before in American history. And now, we know where this Muller investigation is focusing on. Because clearly that folded in this other investigation about whether or not he was working as an asset or for rush. Sha against American interests. And that's clearly part of the Muller investigation. He's going to have to answer that question, isn't it? I mean, all the debates and that we've had or seen a lot of them are focused on whether Muller's going to find the so-called word collusion conspiracy, all those things. And now we know that that he has to answer that Christian really as we called this podcast is the president and asset of Russia is either. Yes, or no. And that's got to be part
Europe continues Mafia crackdown, arrests 90 in continent-wide raids
"Police have arrested nearly ninety suspect mobsters in Europe. And the Faust America as part of an international rate at targeting in notorious Italian mafia group, the European Union's Justice agencies says those arrested include high ranking members of the group accused of drug trafficking and money laundering. Hundreds of police are set of taken part in Wednesday's operation. They sees a four tenths of cocaine one hundred twenty kilos Eskenazi and two million euros in cash across Germany, Italy, the Netherlands Belgium, Luxembourg and Surinam the crackdown came a day after a talion police arrested at a new boss of another mafia group with more on this, my colleague ding, hung earlier spoke with new cuss cinnabon and tally any communist and business. Innovation strategy with Jill these a French supply chain company, the mafia group we are talking about here is called under again ta which. I think derives its name from the Greek vocabulary for Hillary's, and this organization is Basting Saillant Italy. So can you tell us more about this group and what kind of harm in brought to Europe? Yes, it is. I started as a secondary group of criminal organization in the south of that. Listeners are more aware of the Sicilian, mafia different nation that that that was born between nineteen fifty ninety nineteen seventy in fact, of course, more than relation, and then it became much more organized crime organization. Three powerful, of course, with a lot of effect trim of illegal activities as the Rangers from Dr trade, money laundering, online crime and the agricultral field crime and and ten four so very Kentucky or and and strong organization with also international ramification. So you talk about Sicilian clan. So what's the difference between these two groups, but just through the math here that everybody the wear off? And they send ragged. Started in thousand region of recall Calabria only started there, by the way because the buffet until approximately nineteen seventy five states as local organization, and then started an expansion in the south of Italy. Probably also with the collaboration with the not yet during the nineteen eighties. And then of course, we expanded to nose retiree and then to the rest of Europe in the world. According to anti Fiat prosecutors. This group is the only Matthew organization to operate in all continents of the world. So why do you think in ask being able to like you said it has been able to extend its reach. I I mean, it's not like the police are paying zero attention to them. Please do pay some attention and the awar- some arrests made in the past. But, but why do you think they have been able to extend the reach so quickly? Well, you know, I mean whole our economy is have become more globalized, right and the links that the died in Conway or on your German economy with the rest of the world, I eventually can be used by these organization. Right. So where organization is is is look at the the become that disagrees. -ation controls have a business with other countries in other confident than the illegality of the operation can run through this kind of highway of the patient. So really know that sound base station as unfortunately. Still is can be exported in various in various confident.

They will like. Two. Joey, and Joey Eick's who is a great follow on Twitter when it comes to Cowboys content. Put it out there that. You know, this may be a bit of hyperbole, and Jeff Kavanagh set it on the radio today, it may be hyperbole. But I truly believe that there are people on Twitter media. You me coal doesn't matter who could go in there and do a better job of putting offense together. Yeah. Could improve the offense on day one. And they just refuse to even tempt things to help out this quarterback who is obviously struggling with both my mind is that all offseason, we heard the term doc friendly. I guess they just send it gain read a Dez Bryant letting Dak have Alan Hearns Deontay Thompson at thirty two in antiquity. Help him get out of his I don't know what they're thinking. I mean like like you're saying it's not you would think they would try to build an offense. They would go off Dax string. So let him do. What he does him before like an NFL quarterback. I guess stretch. I don't think now I was just say, I don't think Dax tear on me. I don't think is an elite quarterback or anything. I think about average quarterback about in that average range. I don't think Hemi. Mario two very different. Max. But. We're not seeing in offense Bill to strengths that. Let him play like a good quarterback. You would think they would at some point. They had a bye week. They could've made some adjustments. I know they brought in a Mari and everything. But instead of the same owed offense in it's like, they think it's just match gonna work one week in Dagan. Jacksonville mean. I mean, I get it. I'm with you. I don't really understand at all. And one of the things that I really don't understand. We'll probably end up getting juries comments in the last spinal segment because I did tell talking about the defense a little bit in this game. Because I thought that they were really really bad after a really really great start the first quarter. I don't think you could ask defense to play any better.

We had one twenty six, twenty seven games Byron, Scott was in year one, and we had our our dynamics in New Jersey were very different than other teams where we did. We had that Yankee nets partnership with in the devils were involved in Lula. Morell oversaw basketball perations and had a basketball background, although he was in hockey. He was great for us, but he, you know, he drove the business side crazy. But you know kid was coming off the the domestic violence incident in Phoenix. More, they felt Marbury could sell tickets. We had a lot of young players with Kenyon Martin Kerry Kittles was coming off injury, Keith in horn, and we had gotten to the two yard line in our somewhat of a new ownership group with, you know, rate chambers, Lewis, cats in Wentworth did not want to do that in your right? Lula. Morella pushed the, you know, push the, you know, got it into the end zone there and gave rod carp launch to go out and do a deal. And you know you have that type of ownership group. You have. You know, as I said, you know, I was involved in, we call them the Seacaucus seven back into the nineties where it was a group of seven businessmen from Seco in the caucus area l. had twelve percent of the team in whenever we, whenever we'll street would get have a trait to do. He'd have to go to this group and they'd have to vote on it. So the hard part is that you can never you could never find these. So if you have a deal on the table.

These are actresses and models and and successful people in business people. People who have successful businesses, and I've asked perations and these are choices. I open adult knowing voluntary choices that these people are making and for the government to just sort of say, well, you know, they're, they're brainwashed, you know, effectively brainwashed. That's really what the government's saying is that is that all of these successful adults have essentially been brainwashed, and they're not acting in their own true self interest. And I just don't think I don't think there's such thing as brainwashing. I think to the extent that we once thought there might be brainwashing went out with a Cold War. You know, it's like a. A relic of the seventies. I mean, it just doesn't exist, but is it? I mean, are people that are educated and and have means immune from being manipulated or coerced brainwashing aside, right? I suppose everybody can be manipulator coerced, but let's look at really what they're saying is going on. It's a self help group. It's a group that that preaches really, I think a pretty fundamental idea the way of come to understand it, which is this that there are no victim with the ironic part about this case, is that the next flossy and maybe I'm dumbing it down too much. Is that just take victimhood out of the equation, everything in your life is something that you chose. I mean, I'm talking about people who live in first world countries who have choices and economic opportunity. If it's in your life, it's because you chose it. You know, if if you don't like your marriage, you chose your wife. You know, you're not a victim and if you take victimization out of the mix of. Normal human interrelationships and you take full responsibility for them. Your life is is better your ethics or stronger, and you become happier, and that's the the linkage between one owns personal ethics and one's own happiness to the extent that there's any novelty in the next philosophy. That's what I understand it to be an. I don't think that's a great idea. You know, and people announcing will I was manipulated while how to sort of say that I was exposed to these concepts and somehow I was manipulated a coerced men. You're gonna have to prove that to me because I don't see it. What I do see is I see a lot of people who broke away from this group who were once very attached to this group who wants leaders in this group who were once teaching the stuff that they're now saying they were manipulated by and now they're angry. I think part of what the evidence is gonna show is some of these people who broke away from Nexium wanted to. Aversion of it themselves? No, they hacked into the next computers. They tried to take the client data. They tried to take other information, you know, because they wanted to go off and do this alone. They don't want, you know, Keith to to to be the head of it. They want it to be the head of it. And I think that's going to be a fascinating part of the trial. Can you tell me what what keeps role was in the company more generally? So Keith is, I guess, like the philosophical head, he's not really a business person. He doesn't have a business mind. He doesn't have business acumen, you know, he's much more. This is gonna sound sort of like pedantic, but he's much more of like a philosopher..
