Tips to Optimize Your 'Work From Home' Setup

"My first tip is to dedicate a workspace. Don't just work from anywhere at home. This is a big no-no dedicate a room. If you can with a door that you can close or corner of a room where that's just like the working corner. You only said there or you stand there. You work from there. When you're working on your business you don't work anywhere else. You don't work on your balcony with your laptop. You don't work on your table and you don't go there to relax okay. This allows you to say this is the workplace. I go there to work now. I know there's other people but we're going to create some incentives or some other systems allow you to Little easier on yourself but a dedicated workspace is very important. Make sure the space conducive for you to work me. There are no distractions. I like just a clear table or desk where i can. Just sit there with my notebook. My laptop my screen and just go for the less distractions better. Because i'll be forced just to get to work. One of the tactics. I like to do is create a to do list at the end of my day for the next day so i have my work cut out for me. The first thing in the morning. I know exactly what i'm gonna do. I have all my list of to. I'm ready to go now. There is an advantage of working from home. There's no commute back and forth. There is no wasted time where you're chatting with other people that's going to add up. You know you can add up two hours a week even just going out for lunch or going to the bathroom could be quite a hike and all those minutes add up. So why am i mentioned as well because you're probably trying to work the same amount of hours that you spend in the office including you know the time that you're you're working when you don't have to commute when you really shouldn't you really should incentivize yourself to finish early so if you finish everything you're supposed to do today. You should not continue working okay. I like to wake up earlier. Five in the morning. And i start my day that way but i spend about two hours Getting ready having breakfast reading just setting myself up for the day. I start working at seven. And if you're being totally honest yourself if you get five solid hours of work that's probably queant to eight hours in an

5G is here, well, maybe.

"You've no doubt heard that the new wireless standard of superfast five G. IS GONNA be huge it may be but it's still early days. I'm Jefferson Graham, you're listening to talking tech. Now the good news about five G. as way fast or service the bad news you need a new phone to connect to the five G. networks. It's like the early days of CDs. When if you WANNA digital music, you needed to replace your old vinyl collection or when high definition TV came in and you needed to buy a new TV. Well only a handful of five g phones have been available, but that's changing Samsung's new note twenty phones out this week connect to five G. and next month apple is expected to unveil four new iphones that will work with five G. for the first time. Again, great news but more bad news five G. is really really confusing and much of what's out there now in five G. FROM VERIZON AT and T. mobile is either hard to get or not really that fast I. The confusion five comes in three flavors ultrafast known as millimeter wave low in medium-band five G., which is not as speedy but more widespread and available. For rising in which has five G. and just thirty five cities uses millimeter wave and has the fastest network but millimeter only works on blocks, not entire neighborhoods and has trouble operating inside buildings. Civilization is expanding its network. On mid band in operation that's in progress. T mobile has the most widespread five G. over seventy, five hundred markets, but it operates in low band in my test T. mobile's five G. was just a little speedier than four G. and not by much. At and T. is in the middle mostly in mid band and my test with an at and T. phone. It wasn't that different from what I saw with T. Mobile. Youtube clip would open up instantly versus a second in four G. and when you try to fast forward to the middle no buffering. Cool. But Nat life changing not yet now a year ago the carriers were charging extra for five G. coverage but not now so any speed bump you get. It's Gravy, right? Exempts from the three firms told me that the five G. Will See in twenty twenty one will be very different because so many new towers in additional queant will be installed listeners. What's your experience been with five G. I'd love to hear from you on twitter where I'm at Jefferson Graham, you've been listening to talking tech

NASA overcomes military's GPS tweaks to peer inside hurricanes

"Now we have Paul vision, a staff writer for SCI. He's here to talk to us about gauging the speed of hurricanes, or at least trying to gauge the speed of hurricanes using satellites. Hi, Paul, okay. I've never thought about this before. But I have seen images of hurricanes. You know, on the Weather Channel they show me. Here's the I in the have the different winds Fay's kind of labeled with color where are they getting those winds? Be measurements. Well, whenever a hurricane moves close enough to the US, we still have the, the fleet of hurricane hunter aircraft that fly into the hurricanes to make direct measurements of the wind. So that's gone on for decades, but for hurricanes there further out know there's a limit to help much you can do this. And once the water dense enough time, deflects satellite measurements opens the traditional measures of wind. Okay. So one way, is with a plane that flies dangerously close to a store. Yeah. Great. That sounds awesome. And then the other is to look at the surface of the water. So we're gonna talk today about a different way of measuring. Hurricanes speeds. Can kinda summarize, how that would work? Sure. So this is a technique was first tested on these hurricane hunter planes, actually, but it, it takes the GPS radio signals that are beaming down all the time everywhere, from above those reflect off the surface of the ocean. And this array of eight satellites catches, these GPS signals, and uses their roughness to infer the winds above them. Okay. That's going to be more accurate than the other measures. We talked about before it's not so much accuracy is about where it can look can look into the heart of hurricanes because these long GPS radio wavelengths can penetrate through clouds and as I t's at the top of the show. There was a problem here where you're trying to use GPS. Did you this precise measurement? But then they ended up having some issues with military tweaking. These GPS signals. Yeah. So the turns out the newest generation of GPS satellites have the ability to boost the signal strength of what they're beaming down. And some of these GPS is still run by the US military. They started doing this soon after this mission launched as the satellites were traveling over the swath of Africa Middle East in eastern Europe. And this really kind of screwed with the calculations that the researchers had because they had assumed that it would not at the strength was constant now Busse said that we're specific location. Interesting. So how did they account for that? They couldn't ask the military to stop doing that for whatever. No, they had to figure out a way around it. It realize they have these small antennas on the top, the satellites that are taking the normal GPS signals in, and the essentially wrote the software for them, so that they would measure the strength of the signal in addition to using it for location and time that took about two years of work, and they had upload new software toll the satellites to actually. Make this happen. And you say all the satellites are eight their acronyms cygnus. I believe, yes, this is the constellation of eight micro-satellites, and who owns those satellites, psalm the NASA program. Okay, 'bout about one hundred fifty million dollars launched a two and a half years ago. So our micro-satellites cheaper than say, a big regular size sidelight was definitely much cheaper than the, you know, billion dollar weather satellites, but it's also very focused on this one application, word and modern whether satellite has a bunch of different instruments, mounted on it. But this was a way of testing this new technique, and it could eventually cheaper because this is the first round doing it, you know, if you want to do this for weather agency. Maybe it could be a bit cheaper will if we know more about the inside of hurricanes further away from the US, we know more about these wind speeds, what would that help us understand what, what does that do for us? It's all about the prediction of storm about both the path. It will take an especially the intensity of the winds and how it will develop the law. Trim hope is that by measuring the inside the guts of these wins fairly frequently can really improve your because this data is then ingested into the models used by the weather service to look at future of these storms. And if had a lot of issues with getting intensity the strength storms. Right. And this type of Queant could boost that I also read in your story that this confused over land, as well to understand more about storms. Yes. So this is about us soil moisture actually. So they're satellites that look at soil moisture purpose built, but infrequently this the consumer the same place, maybe every three days. So that doesn't allow you to ask questions about the short term Lucien of soil and kind of how response to water and gets rid of water. So we care about this because of flooding flooding and soil water in the soil feeds back into rainfall and all sorts of connections. What are some of the broader questions that these satellites could answer when researchers realized that? These would be able to measure wins beneath storms. It's not just about hurricanes. There's this thing single. The Madden Julian oscillations is series of storms that March across the belly of the planet from the Indian Ocean east, and they've really kind of tell connections from an help control a lot about the weather year to year and researchers can't see the winds underneath these storms. But now with cygnus it seems like it can start to see that wins are actually feeding the precipitation that allows these storms to continue which some have thought was one reason, but there have been other through now. This might really start to help people figure out how these storms could change with climate change. What's the next step here? These satellites are going to die at some point, right? The limiting factor of the satellites are the batteries likely in those should lasts for seven years there in low earth orbit. So they will descend into the atmosphere and burn up. The big question going forward is will Noah start to use these satellites or satellites like them in the future to inform weather forecasts? So. This is a NASA mission. It's only supposed to last seven years. Noah's unlikely to use these satellites for their own weather predictions because they like to own their hardware. But this could really make the case firms Montaigne something like this in the future. Okay. Thank you so much Paul, my pleasure. Hopefully sent as staff writer for science, you can find a link to story at science MAG dot org slash podcasts.

Huawei Threat Is Already Here, FCC Commissioner Starks Says

"Support for this podcast and the following message come from mayo clinic if you're looking for answers no one else has been able to find, you know, where to go mayoclinic. More at mayo clinic dot org slash answers. The Trump administration has big concerns about Chinese telecommunications, giant Weiwei here. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Fox News. While way, is an instrument of the Chinese government, they're deeply connected. So the US government is trying to prevent American companies from buying always equipment. But what about the equipment that's already being used here in the US? That's what Jeffrey stark says worried about. He is the Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission or the FCC and he joins me now. Thanks so much for being with us. Good morning. Great to be with you. Do you have a firm understanding of how much while way equipment is currently in the US? I think that's something that we are all of us trying to focus on right now is, what is the scope of the problem. Here. What is the scope of how much while way equipment is in our networks right now? And a lot of the focus has been on correcting the amount of Galway infrastructure. That is currently in our networks, going forward the issue that I wanna focus on is, we know that while way has a, a position already in a number of small rural carriers networks already and we need to focus on that issue. So I wanna get to your prescription. But when you talk about why we equipment being used in these rural networks how so how's it employed? It can be deployed in a number of different manners. It can we know for a number of the wireless networks that it is in their very core. It is in. They're intent as it is in their radios, it is in how they tr- transmit signals over their networks. And so it is fully deployed in a lot of wow equipment, fully throughout these small rural carriers. So it would be your concerned that this equipment could be of could be manipulated for surveillance, by the Chinese government. I mean is that your word? I think there are two main concerns that folks have I think the first risk is, of course, that there could be some espionage. The second concern is that there would be an ability by wall way through the Chinese and the Chinese government to disrupt or disabled, some of our communication networks, particularly in times of a national emergency. So you wrote in an op Ed in the hill that, that you want all this equipment removed, as you noted the Trump administration is focused on moving forward, but you say they quit here. We got to get rid of it. How would you do that? And that is the crux of the issue that a lot of us in particular here at the FCC were, we are in control of the networks. This is a national defense issue. That's what certainly are executive agencies are telling us. And so I think it's going to be imperative that we come up with a practicable solution that finds it fixes it and funds it and by that, I mean, making sure that we find the full scope of the wall way infrastructure, that is in our networks, that is presenting a vulnerable, national security issue, making sure that we fix it. And for most for the most part, I think that's probably going to be replacing the Queant that presents that security risk. And then making sure that we funded a lot of these small rural telecommunications carriers are, in fact operating on a very thin budget. And so, I think it is going to be important that. We find a way to ultimately be able to help folks, make sure that we take care of the security threat, and that most likely is gonna mean paying for it, right. As you point out that this is a problem. They these smaller companies didn't create. And so you say the government should be responsible for making them whole after after taking away. I think that's right going back to twenty twelve twenty thirteen and even even more clearly in two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen it has been clear that the US government is growing increasingly uncomfortable with having this way equipment in our network in our infrastructure. But a lot of these folks until the executive order was issued about two weeks ago, which made it completely official that the national security risk was very clearly there. A lot of folks were making the business decision on their own about where they settled on the fact of what they going to go ahead and purchase for the this equipment. A lot of this equipment was while we has particularly made it very cheap and made it available to a lot of these small rural carriers. And so we know that there's a lot of it out there. FCC Commissioner Gregory Stark's for us this morning. Thank you so much for your time. We appreciate it. Thank you so much.

"queant" Discussed on KQED Radio

"I see. But once they settle into their seats, the mood turn serious should start with, you know, hey Queant, trainer Albert Moskowitz is a former senior Justice department prosecutor, he poses? The big question many cops have about hate crime laws. Do we need them? What do you think? At first, nobody responds. Then one officer fidgeting with his pen says he supports the approach New Hampshire takes now no state hate crime, blah, but prosecutors can seek tougher sentencing when bias motivation Moskowitz pushes the officer to explain why should even be a factor. If there's no hate crime law. The somehow these crimes are more serious than they would otherwise be serious. I'll send more serious salt is the salt limit. How you look anybody's series. Yeah. So why would it be more serious? If the assault is substantially motivated by the person's race religion. It should be enhanced aspire as penalties. But sparse seriousness, I don't know that back and forth happens at nearly every stop of this traveling workshop. It's put on by two advocacy groups, the Matthew Shepard foundation and the lawyers committee for civil rights under law. The trainers know they're waiting into a long simmering debate over hate crime. Laws. There's one set of the population that looks at hate crimes and sees laws that were passed to protect certain people, and why were those certain people more special than somebody else. That's another trainer Cynthia deal. A former FBI special agent who was in charge of the bureau civil rights unit. She's now with the Matthew Shepard foundation. She's done this training all over the country and says the mood each time is set by the local chief here in Durham, both the local and campus. Police departments welcomed it as. Durham chief Dave Kerr's made clear to his officers. Those guardians of community, it's important for us to understand that a simple misdemeanor rock being thrown for window may be just that. But then, again, it may not be just that supporters have hate crime laws say the idea is to acknowledge the sweeping impact of targeting someone, simply for who they are the torching of a mosque is felt by the larger Muslim community, for example, just like the murder of a trans woman since a message to others who identify as LGBT strafford, county attorney, Thomas velocity who oversees durum surrounding area says he sees hate crime laws as restorative. There are some people who are being singled out in some instances hurt, and we need to do something about that. And we're sort of struggling with how do we respond to that? What do we do? And how do we do it? The trainers are careful about the framing stressing how it's just good police work to stay on top of hate incidents that might point to a trend or signal the formation of. Groups like the ones that wreaked havoc in Charlottesville Virginia, Cynthia Dido. Again, none of us want you to be the next Charlottesville, or the next Charleston or the next Pittsburgh. We don't want you to be that, but we don't know and you need to be prepared. Police in New Hampshire have already gotten a taste of how fast racist incidents can outpace their response in the fall of twenty seventeen a seven year old by racial boy was the victim of a racist attack on a school bus in a separate incident white teenagers allegedly put a rope around another by racial child's neck and pushed him off a picnic table. And the UNH campus was reeling after a complaint about the cultural appropriation of Cinco de mayo spiraled into weeks of racial unrest, that time was sad. But there were opportunities. That's university of New Hampshire. Police chief Paul dean, he says this training is one of many ways he's making good on a promise to students to learn from twenty seventeen and introduced change. Just. Because something has always been the way it is doesn't necessarily mean that's the right way. And we need to if off if I don't like the idea of somebody feeling uncomfortable in my community. It's hard to say whether the chiefs commitment has trickled down to the rank and file during the training few of the officers volunteered, their thoughts, they opened up a little more over lunch. Sitting around the table and the campus cafeteria, the officers used some of the language of crime. Skeptics, there's not an increase. It's just that there's more reporting now or the media quick to call something, a hate crime,.

Five Eyes and 5G: the Huawei debate

"Ministers are demanding an investigation after high level discussions about the country. Using alway technology were leaked approval has reportedly been given for the Chinese technology giant to supply equipment in the rollout of five g the fifth generation of mobile internet, five G allows much faster data speeds, wider coverage and more stable connections. But the question of who should supply the technology for five G has divided the closest allies five G networks must be secure. They must be strong. They have to be guarded from the enemy. We do have enemies out there America has encouraged its allies NAS to involve alway in his five G networks Britain, it seems has gone against that advice. So it's agreed to let hallway build at least some of its five G networks to let the firm be involved on the construction to to some degree. Tim cross our technology editor it's limited and Oakland allow them. Anyway. Anywhere and everywhere in the network. They're gonna restrict them to this Lee sensitive pods are of the network, but they have basically given it. Go ahead. Tim wire the Americans so worried about what way helping to build these five G networks. I think there are two reasons why people say worried about this the sort of more immediate motion. Someone is increasingly mobile phone networks are piece of critical infrastructure like the power grid the water supply or something and that allowing a company from China potentially when he was two rivals to install these things potentially quite wise because it might give them news to spy on you or even sabotage you'll networks on the second one is that it's basically about superpower rivalry. I'd ever since the fall of the union we've lived in a world dominated by America. And one of the pillars of American power is it's ten illogical expertise. China is very deliberately in very straightforwardly challenging that. So it's partly about the immediate threat of spying in the longer time. It's about how you deal with an increasingly powerful and increasingly assertive China, but if the British government intends to restrict. While way from the core of network, isn't that enough risks to restrict altogether? Do you think the British of made the right decision here? Well, that's the question. This is the point that also have other people Americans have been making it's difficult. You have to you have to balance these things there's an argument that because of while he's providence because their Chinese company because China is potentially as big strategic rival. And we know that keen on hacking networks uncompromising things, I'm because of all that there is an argument that the safest thing to do is to say, well, why bother with a tool before you even get into the geopolitics that sort of pure security counterargument to that is there on that many companies out there who sell the stuff sell this kid that goes into mobile phone networks, and if you free twelve out you're really left with two options, which is Ericsson Nokia or finishing the Swedish. But one of the principles of building sort of safe and secure zillion network is to try and have Queant from his many supplies as possible. So to send you wanna do that. That's what butts up against the. The worries that you mentioned about about letting in and you mentioned that that this is this decision isn't quite in contrast to to what America has decided how have to security partners longtime security partners diverge so much on on this kind of decision. This is the big sort of physical questions. So America has made it pretty clear in the last few months that it would like as many times as possible to freeze while we out as much as possible Britain's, no the only one that sort of push back against a bit Germany has said that they seem to be happy. At least in principle Wally to be involved. But yet Britain is maybe the most significant one, partly because the so much intelligence cooperation between the two countries. And you know, it's really hard to do much more than than to speculate there possibly some technical reasons to do with, you know, because Britain small better densely, populated because of the nature of how these networks work, it might be easier to to sort of manage the risk and to limit while way too. Big. Of the network that you aren't so concerned about on the other hand is a sense that at least some of America's criticisms of the are motivated by a sort of broad question of wanting to restrict China's technological power America's the incumbent super palace has one set of incentives to Britain, which is you know, sort of medium sized country with the medium size economy. Maybe doesn't face and might be Britain things, you know, to some extent it's worth trying to stay on the good side of both America ranch owner if it can. And so we've America does feel that strongly about it will will Britain's decision to let way in strain relations with them would again, we'll have to wait and see. I mean, you've already seen some containers in China saying, this is a this is a split in the five is the five is being the big spying packed that Britain, America, New Zealand, Canada, and astray Leah are involved in you know, again, I didn't have access to see briefings or anything. But I would be surprised if it did. I mean prince decision in a way sort of continuous. Of its of its existing policy already got while gear in most of a on mobile networks. Ready, this sort of model Britain has a lowering it in but tearing down all the couldn't when it comes in and going over it with a fine tooth comb and looking for any evidence of foul play that's existed for a long time. So you might take the view that. Well, despite all the sound of jury has anything really changed? But there's also the question of what everybody gets membership and Britain's electronic spying agency is sort of second biggest in the five. It's medication is very useful with a whole bunch of internet trunk cables, come ashore in Britain wishes have great place to do some spying if you want to so it's hard to say show, but all these threats Todd from America about cutting back intelligence-sharing, I'd be surprised if they amounted to too much in some then you weren't troubled by the by Britain's decision then to let way into its to its networks. I think the decision to ban or permit while way to purely by itself isn't all that lightly to have much. Have an effect on on how secure your competing networks are if you ban while way, but didn't take any other action still weighs in. I think what's interesting about it is it's finally brought to the full something that lots of computer security experts have been hatchets about for a long time. Which is that we're connecting more and more of us to the internet. We don't really knows what the full implications of that. Are you know, we don't know what a full onside wounds. We don't know. What what kind of how is possible if you'll really determined to 'cause it and so while this is is sort of front and center people's minds. It feels like a good opportunity to try and do some things that would improve security whether you have Walli whether you. Tim. Thanks very much for your

"But the. The two different versions of the ads were selected because of differences between you and your buddy, maybe you really like hiking, and your buddy really likes the beach, and this is an outdoor sporting event type company. Maybe it's, you know, a sports Queant type company, and so they send one add to you that is geared more toward hiking camping, and that kind of thing and one to your buddy, that's more about beach life kind of stuff. It's both for the same company or service, but the ad has been selected specifically because of differences in your preferences that Facebook is able to keep track of if that means that either of you are more likely to make a purchase then that's a valuable expense for the advertisers. So you start to see how all these little pieces of data start to add up to become incredibly valuable. And then you think about Facebook being a data broker with all this information about you. And all. All these potential advertisers to work with and you really see how the money rolls in. So Facebook has a vested interest and people sharing information publicly the more people share about themselves. The more data Facebook has about them. So from posts to about pets too pictures of meals invitations to parties requests for help to seek out a job. Facebook's paying attention to all of this, and it has on occasion gone even further than that such as when the site launched the beacon program back in two thousand eight believe it was that's what allowed companies that were partnering with Facebook. They could share activities that Facebook users were doing on their sites. So let's say that you are a ticket broker company. New you to sell tickets to live events, and you have this Facebook beacon partnership, and then I a Facebook user go to that site. And I purchase. A ticket. Then the site could have published that activity to my Facebook feed. Whether I wanted it or not and a lot of people felt like this was a terrible violation of privacy. So maybe you just happened to go and buy tickets to go see my little pony on ice. And maybe you don't need all your friends on Facebook to know that and then to use that information as a way to make fun of you for the next decade, for example. But then beacon goes in posts your purchase for all to see on your profile. Not that this has happened to anyone I know. And it definitely did not happen to me. But you get the idea. So Facebook is in the information business the same as Google and lots of other companies that we tend to associate with some other type of business, right? Most of us think of Facebook as a social network platform, we tend to think of Google as a search engine, and then increasingly other stuff remotely related to search engines, the both companies actually depend heavily on. Averaging data about their users to entice advertisers. They really are advertising companies or companies that host advertising. So it was completely in the interests of Facebook for Zuckerberg to declare that the notion of privacy was no longer a cultural norm back in twenty ten whether that was true or not as a matter of debate, and certainly some people appear to have little concern for their privacy. And I'm not passing judgment on them either. But I suspect there are a lot of folks out there who feel otherwise that privacy still is important still should play a part in our interactions online. And otherwise and some pretty high profile incidents have brought the topic into sharp, focus, if you've been listening to my chauffeur awhile, you probably heard the episodes about Cambridge Analytica, and how the data analytics company relied upon information that was pulled from an app that left many feeling that they had had their privacy violated..

UNSW Sydney engineers want to mine water on the moon

"New ustralian project underway to mine. Water on the moon for conversion into rocket fuel. It'll stems because one of the biggest problems with spaceflight at least chemically powered space lot. Like, we use here on earth is the cost of transporting the few needed for the journey. So wouldn't it be great? If you any knitted enough, you'll to get you there and then fill up again for the return journey and that fuel would be plain old water or the most common molecules in the universe. And there's plenty of it on the moon frozen. His eyes on the permanently shadowed flows of polar impact craters which never exposed to Rick. Sunlight what a molecules of also that ticket in the thin lays of gas flooding just above the lunar surface. Of course, water in the chemically related hydroxyl group can also exist in forms out of the normal water molecules by being chemically bound as hydrates hydroxides Telent minerals, and this strong evidence suggesting that low concentrations of these hydrates hydroxides cover much of the Luna. Surface finding water in the moon's important firstly astronauts can drink it that can break down to oxygen and hydrogen use the oxygen for breathing. And of course, the oxygen and hydrogen constituents are also the ingredients of rocket fuel making rocket fuel out of water on the moon would significantly cut down the cost of carrying out space missions now professor Andrew Dempster and colleagues from the university of New South Wales. I looking at the commercial viability of mining water on the moon to produce that rocket fuel Dempster believes a strategy is uniquely placed the covets out a niche in the global space industry by exploiting its position of strength in mining expertise to office mining. He says Austrailia hasn't natural advantage. It already has the world's best mining research technology in automation, tools, and the planet's largest mining companies the major deterred for industry involvement is being the lack of understanding of the commercial viability associated with this type of project, and of course, the besieged investment risk profile of mining Dempster and colleagues. Want to create the engineering machinery mining methods energy resources and communications required to make such operations viable. Hey says while commercial mining operations of the moon still decades way given sufficient funding his team could be just five to ten years away from politics a water mining proof of concept operation on the lunar surface any settlement that happens on the moon would need waterfall source of purposes, if people that would consume it fuel growing plants, you grow them, but most of the applications we looking at for water, the moon would be before settlement happens. And so most of this would just be purely robotic exercise so things like if you can produce the water you can separate it out into hydrogen oxygen. You can then use it as fuel. So you could input that rocket fuel in orbit around the moon or or run the summed. And so if you only way MAs you could refuel away, you know, the reason why that's interesting is or sensible is that it costs limit about ten thousand dollars peculiar to get something into Lewis ov-, it if you. Can create your water. Listen ten thousand dollars a kilogram. You've got a business sorta to do this. I guess they're very side as I gonna melt the water in situ, are you going to extract it as rock rock as regular minds would or are you looking at extracted out of the brick here on the moon liquid? It doesn't exist. There's not enough pressure. Only sort of two types of what do exist as a solid on spending. It will if you hate it out. It would immediately become guests. It will sublime drinking against solely because of lack of Prussia. So what you need to be able to do is not only to heat the ons, but you need to be able to capture and stored in personalized why tunes into a liquid all sorts of technologies that are around try and do this one of them's of build say bubble of the top of the the regular, which is the the soil, and you could apply to it. And you can expect a water in that way. And then gathered together into a container pressurize it separated into the Hudson oxygen the technologies being looked at to achieve. This they being experimented with. Now. You more interested in this. Or are you more interested in the actual robotic the autonomous vehicles that will be doing the extraction? And then processing we'll we have reward Ryan interests. We have students looking at the of this issue. How you might to environmental impact statement. How you as you come up with business cases, and you can close them which mining message. What used to extract to to get the rock into a state where you can convert the the water admission does on how you look at the whole mission where you the resources where you'd want to land. How you power the robots so run across the range of research, topics. We'd looking at or base things basics already looking at missions to examine the feasability of mining at the Luna south pole is this something you want to get on board with or you guys looking at it totally independent approach we hoping to with whatever Papa so whoever would love to wick with their various companies seventy nine them, but some of the lodge inch. National spice companies have very strong interesting strategy at the moment, probably because we sit up out spice agency last year. But also just because the spice industry Hughes growing very rapidly. Regardless of anything to do with the agency we've gone from having to spice startup companies five years ago, having one hundred now it's a really exciting place to be looking at spice, and that's tracking bit of interest. For somebody's international palms. Visit logic to examining mining as in each four spell you. We have the largest mining companies advice team who pays in Rio Tinto's of this world. We have the best mining researches in the world Hugh money engine eating, and we have the strongest mine or am I shouldn't. So those months up in north western strategy with around people in the minds. Leaping up ready for number of years now and successful with automated trains to and they like fifty thousand Tom transit the little things. No, none. But to some extent the the degree of automation of those months at the moon. And is not enough to spice. So by that. I mean, there's still a favorite of communication between a mind and the the headquarters and one of the things that I'm personally quite interested in is the trade off between much communication bend. We'd see need and how tournaments the robots have to be much decision making that can do by themselves without having an intervention from the headquarters. So I think there's a lot of little research to be done there as well. And you really can pay Monte on a to extraterrestrial mining considering the distances the different sorts of environments and especially on the moon with dust play such an important role, the capacities probably more straightforward than you might think the stages that you go through what mining engineers coal exploration. And what Lyman would call like people would go prospecting like would prospecting. But when you talk about exploration and spice that means something else. So we need to come up with some language consisted. But that stays the prospecting style. Edge, the feasibility stage than his mining this transport, and this delivery to a customer a lot of that. Brian Wook exists ready for mines and a lot of the big money companies would understand how you about putting together an argument for for or how you structure it that we are not though talking about driving with trucks with ties twice the height of the person, and I sort of things it would be quite different mechanics, but at the high level, it looks very similar at the low level looks quite different. When you talk about the dust on the moon, bigger problem. That's absolutely the case very haunting reliable Queant l'agence is one of the things that is very important the Trishul money even moso in spice because you can't seem to post a long to go and and fix your robot for you. But when I talk about mining in a very remote place, like the moon, the challenges quite similar to for instance, moaning in the deep sea in the deep oceans, so because again, it has to be very remote, disagree of autonomy era environmental challenges. Is that different challenges? But it's it's still the same general problem. So I think we've got a lot of people working on some of those problems already. And I think if we were to start looking at money and spice, we could then be learning lessons that we could apply on the United States already looking at a success to the national space station in the form of and you space station, which would be one of the Legrand's positions between the earth and the moon. So it'll always sort of remain the opening the middle sort of always remain that position. And that would be a jump off point for regular excursions explorations, prospecting, whatever you wanna call it to the lunar surface. I believe that's why some of the first mining techniques of an extraterrestrial nature gonna be let it in practice yet. Yeah. Wasn't gonna mention on the grounds point to that point on that. That's actually according more like to deliver the fuels to those those points. And yes, we getting quite a lot of interest in the US ninety nine potholes than they would like to deliver payloads onto the Luda surface. Europe has been very active in their moon village China as landed in arrive Rome fossil. So there's there's a lot of intimacy interest in authentic. We have being too out there to be joining in on what time line is is they won. Or is that in terms of developing the technology, which obviously you got to be doing here on us is there at Tom line for that. Or is that too early in the process to to look at things, I think in terms of polio relation commercial operation between talking dick by the need putting in of proving the technologies to make that possible. I think missions can be put together now to start doing that part of what we're interested in stubby was really only examining technologies that apart of a close business. So if you say, this is entirely commercially useful, this technology, then we'll study that one example was we had a student who has growth Jet Propulsion Laboratory, we've had students have placements over the as part of this program. And it was listening at a MAs settlement. And one of these early findings was if. We used this particular technology, and they were forty people in settlement thirty six of them would have to be writing this. And so clearly that's feasible, and those are the sorts of things you wanna knock on the head before you start testing them on on the surface. If they never going to be useful. So a lot of work has to be done the head of time to make sure that what you're doing is going to be useful in the long run. That's professor Andrew Dempster from the university of New South

"And this has professional impacts if if you work in a knowledge sector job, it's gonna make you worse it what you do. Yeah. Sitting at a lecture there with a friend of mine, and she was on her phone, and she was tweeting, and she was picturing doing stuff Instagram ING, and I said give me your phone, and I grabbed over my says open your phone, and so I opened the screen time. App, and it shows not only the amount of screen time, which was a lot for her. But it showed the number times to pick up your phone, and it was like a thousand times in a day. She was yours. And I over mind it was like sixty or seventy still a lot. And I was like, wow, that's a lot. And I think people don't realize that it affects your ability to be engaged in any particular work for a long time. And that's concerning because the things that mattered the quality work. We do. Yeah. Determines our success in life in terms are actually so to be able to be engaged with what's happening around us. And that's a big big deficit. I think it's crazy if if we were professional athletes, and we're eating junk food, we were smoking. That's crazy like you make a living off of the physical healthier body. But it's the same thing if you're a elite level knowledge work, I mean, it's literally your brain. And it's ability to concentrate, it's ability to take in and process information, produce new information has new value. That's at the core of probably a lot of your. Audience's living, right? That's a living. And to be on these phones all the time that is to cognitive Queant of junk food, and yet somehow we're not seen it that way. So so you're scientist what what is the data that validates what you're saying? Because I imagine people listening. Oh, yeah. That's just kind of. Sure, maybe I can't believe that. I'm fine. You know, like, what is the actual hard data that supports these is that being on your phones all the time or being distracted by social media is actually impairing your Bill to focus. Well, one of the the more deport. That's right. Well, I think one of the more alarming pieces of data that's out there. Now is we call it sometimes economist productivity paradox, which is if you study non industrial productivity, so the economic metric of productivity so the amount of actual output produce per hour spent working it should have continued to increase over the past ten years. We've had this revolution in not just our technology. But in connective and information, people are connected in places neverwhere before they have essential. All the world's knowledge at their fingertips. They can move files and information from a device that fits in their hand with a supercomputer power. Like, this is amazing. And yet during this entire period. Productivity have been stagnant. It's not going up. It should have been going up. But it's not. And there's a growing sense that one of the forces at play here is that. Yes, these technology is giving us more options and power and yet at the same time, it's working against the way that are wet wear works to actually fragment our intention in the way. It does make our brain actually worse at concentrating producing value. And so the downturn from that combined with the what should have been enhanced productivity, which is the tools is just flattening out. Yeah. And so I think this has a real real issue. And I can only imagine that we're gonna see if this is true non-dollar productivity actually start to go down as the younger generation. That's more connected. Anyone before starts to come into the workforce. So we have that piece of evidence. Then we have a lot of more. Close study those individual type studies actually trying to understand work the late work by the late cliff. Nasa Stanford University, he did a lot of work actually in the lab. This I collagen lab with individuals working on what he called multitasking. It's basically the same idea. There's no such thing. Right. There is no such thing. He you know, he actually helped a spread that spread that idea. But he was the one who actually had some pretty good research on chronic multi-taskers think they're really good at concentrating. But they're much worse than people who don't another threat of research..

Sunlight, and you're like, all right. I've got to be able to produce syllable images, and you can take what you've learned from lighting and learn how to manipulate the sun, and what you currently have to get what you need when you're shooting, weddings and portrait's, you know, weddings, you when you show up. You don't always know what you're getting you don't know what the location sometimes looks like you don't know what the lighting's going to be sometimes, you know, shot a wedding one time that was snot green carpet with wood paneling on the walls. And you all can you're like, oh my God. Like, how am I going to make this look good? In the relationship aspect of weddings, and portrait's when you're dealing with people one on one and specially weddings, where it's typically for the bride, especially in the bribes mom, a very high stress situation part of your job as of Taga for is to help lower that stress level on your end. And I would always tell people once you hire me as your attacker, don't worry about your photography anymore. That's Modum Magyars to worry about that. And make sure I get what you need. And if you're a good photographer in good at relationships, you'll you'll see that stress level lift off of them. And then you can take that same exact thing to what I do. Now when I have clients that are not showing up on the shoot with me as you still use those same exact skills when you're talking to him on the phone that relieves that stress that when they hang up there. All right. He's got this. He's got it covered and were confident he's going to get it and in all honesty wedding. Things to me force you to know your Queant because you don't have time to be fumbling around and not know what your quit McCann do. Because if you missed the shot there is no going back and redoing it. And I always said, you know, I wish a lot of art directors and creative directors from ad agencies. But actually look at that and be like man if he can Nell a wedding. He knows what he's doing with his acquit -ment. He knows how to deal with lighting. He knows how to deal with things unexpected happening. And it's the same issues that come up at a commercial shoot. You can't always control the weather. You can't always control. What how you know, you may get there and it storm in the whole time. And it's like man you've hired me to be here. And no matter what the circumstance is what I'm dealt with my job as a professional is to get you images. That are good and that you can use. And so I think as photographer as a whole it just translates across the board. I think people need to stop. Looking at it as well. I'm a wedding shoot.

"Now, again, maybe apple invested a lot in the Queant for production of the new models and the volume that would be necessary in which, but if if macro issues or other issues are taking it down. And Autry to doesn't mean that indicators wrong is that there are other indicators while that, you know, it's not only what the what you intend to spend. And you want to build factories that are going to produce one hundred billion dollars worth of product. But you only produce ninety three billion dollars worth of product while you hold off on some of that spending. Or maybe next year, you you or next quarter? You don't spend as much and so the it's possible that things didn't work out in it's possible that nothing to do with. With with the product itself, but more to do with with the with other factors. We are. We are facing a slowdown. And that's a global thing. It's also reflected in the share prices of many other companies I posted a tongue-in-cheek graph showing showing the the history of the three month history of apples fear price versus the price of oil. And they're they're so so similar it's shocking. I mean, not just overall this over the three month period. They both fall in about twenty to twenty five percent. But actually, you can see them going up and down within that period almost lockstep. I mean, they're it's a remarkable. How close the apple is to oil price of oil. So I you know, and I could do the same. Although maybe one curly quite as nicely with. Let's say Amazon or or with Google. Or facebook. I think these may be had started their declines earlier. And and so there's there's there's a lot going on with the whole sector being under stress. But. Know, certainly the story of apple isn't just caused by by panik within the within the iphone shipment. Data could apple with this is apples grown to the amount of their assets. Could today have their own currency? They would have Donald standard they'd have. I don't standard. Well, you know, this is interesting because it communists, have sometimes proposed other standards of the finding defining. Value. So so obviously we have the crypto now. But in the old days, you there was a Big Mac index apple MAC, but the McDonald's MAC the Big Mac index which was measuring how much how much Big Mac cost of different countries as an indicator of perhaps in, you know, the currency exchange rates being off off kilter. So the Big Mac index that commodity in terms of ingredients and pricing of it therefore might really beat this. This disconnected to what that currency the local currency was showing in in in an exchange rate. And so that was a Big Mac index. That was the economist was doing that. I hope I got that. Right. Exactly. But so that was an example remember in the old days back in Romania? The currency was was valueless the local Romanian communist era currency. Was pretty worthless. And so people substituted other goods as as currency barter type economy. And I remember at one thing was a carton of cigarettes in particular one brand of cigarettes, which was can't which was an American braille that people were using this as as currency. So you could buy services and products by by you know, trading cartons or the individual packs. Nobody would smoke them. They were just used for trade. And it was just wanted a taxi ride you wanted to write to the airport. You know, you'd stand on the curb and flash APAC of cans, and so you get in you know, that would be the the fair that you would use other things I also substitute Levi jeans. Again, there were not used. They were never warned. You just had kept them in the original folded configuration in new trade them. And that was a very very valuable didn't matter. What is? No, no. It didn't matter. What size because obviously out some points. You know, they would you would easily find someone to fit. But, but this is historically you substitute something that that is is better than the currency because that currency could become worthless. And and since communism fell people have been gravitating towards using other currencies. Right. So if you have access to dollars, you're gonna use dollars. So so, you know, in Venezuela or other countries today were there's hyperinflation I know that there's any others, except maybe there was Imbaba way..

So there's one I would try that is a chrome extension, but you can also use it on windows and MAC and Lennox even it's called polar. And I think it's very impressive P O L A, double art dot CO, polar dot co they have a chrome extension that I think is quite good. They're also working on a video editor, which is impressive. I use a lot of times. I'll just use Google photos. They have quite a and they keep adding more to that. Quite a good set of stuff as your as you say snap seat on the on Android, and I o s is amazing photo editor, but it's very filter focused. If you wanna do more what light room does. So I we ran out of time yesterday, you were asking about landscape and portrait are you just getting into photography is something new for you or. Yeah. So kember. Yeah. September. I started projects at school. This. For and so I I'm totally loving it. It's one of my favorite things done in school. And so that's a loss. I I wanna go four with it. And I wanna do it for just a hobby. It's hard to make a living. And I know we have many professional photographers in the audience, and they'll I'm sure agree. It is unfortunately, tough to make a living these days and photography because there's so many photographers everybody nowadays with their camera phone is of photographer, but it's a wonderful hobby. So I would never discourage anybody from learning and picking up a camera getting better Queant playing with software and learning photography 'cause it's very satisfying hobby, and it's been it's been great for me. I love it. And yeah, if if it if it makes you feel good, man. That's awesome. I've been using my dad's nights on seventy for a while. Great camera was my first DSL are. Yeah. It's been good. I just yeah. I I've been mainly looking trying to find something photo editing. So yeah. Tri polar on a Chromebook on the eleven it should be fine. It is free to try. I think that you can also pay, but you should check. And see what the what you get. If you pay if you get a whole lot more. But that's a pretty good thing. I have to say though, you know on your smartphone. And and with that Nikon you can easily transfer. I actually I don't know if the seventy s a fairly old one it on more modern of cameras these days, you can easily transfer stuff over to mobile devices via wife because I have a Google pixel XL us that could transfer files seventy. Yeah. The transfer tool that use the church for your data from from each device that when you get a pet so I've been using that transfer files from my niece, seventy fix my phone. So. The one issue that is you're probably getting Jay Pegues, not raw. Now, the d seventy will shoot you. It's actually coming out raw, they are all that's fantastic. So now, I mean, you might you might say I bet you that they that pixel has more more horsepower than that Chromebook. And I know it's a smaller screen, but it's a very good screen might be that that's a better photo editing device than the laptop that Chromebook. Yeah. I guess. Yeah. Really? If you think about it as long as you can see it well enough, and you're young. So you're is probably good enough. You can see it which pixel the have I have.

People are starting to catch on. Yeah. Let me ask you. This is not having stricter gun laws. Let's even go with you saying we need stricter gun laws. In other words, all semi automatic need to be banned. In other words, all firearms able use to protect themselves is not having your laws that you want. Is that Queant to murdering people is not grounding people automatic citizenship because they showed up and knocked the door the same murdering them. Is there any Republican who wants to make it legal to murder poor people or emigrants or argue that mass shootings should be legal. No, it's only the left who are us at the murder of an entire group of people, namely unborn children. Or they go that it should be legal, which by the way is basically the definition of genocide you're picking a group of people and your killing them because they're different why because they're small. I mean, I go talk talk about other in somebody anytime that you sit down with somebody on the left the genuinely has a concern for people you realize that nobody wants poor people out there. Nobody wants nobody wants kids who are fleeing persecution though, that's not the case to have to just sit there and look on the outside looking in. We basically have all of the same concerns.

"A with a some of these you could do a fifteen inch roader, but it's the thickness of that road or that is is adding a lot of weight a lot of half. And how. Get a caliber around that thing. Exactly. And you know, we had a lot of guys who are tracking like Porsches, for example. We're asking can we get something that's track sensible this. This'll give us possibility. I think in a lot of cases. So you kind of have that road and track kind of capability not only for Porsches but for your car's right racking. So it's really really cool and. More breaking surface. You know, I mean, you look at it's this was this is really a great galloper. It's optimize. It looks. Great. I'm looking right over your shoulder. Actually. So this this other photo here this blue and with the black background like it looks mountainous. Like, it grew from the earth just sort of shaped like, and if you you know, you can see it if if you go online, we have pictures of it on vehicles it Brembos dot com, and you will see the caliber it doesn't look exactly like it looks like we look at it. It actually looks great inside the car. I mean, it it really looks high tech. But at the same time, it's you know, it's pure bred book, and what's happening in brake pad, worlds and road or worlds. Well, you know, rotors continue to get lighter and lighter you say, well, how can you do that? You know, we keep talking about hotlanta horsepower and rotors are getting bigger and bigger, but there's a lot of two peace technology out there. So you take your basic iron road or that you see every single day. And now they're looking at those rotors and saying jeez. What can we do to optimize? The rotor will the biggest target is the hat section the road or section. You only need that strip of iron on the outside or the brake. Pat it right. As sort of kind of dumbing this down if you will. But now what what do you have left in the middle? So we're actually seeing some of our applications original Queant applications that we have and we're also seeing in the aftermarket which we've had, but we're seeing some new materials. Now, we're seeing two piece rotors make it to the scene. So the hat section if you will other than the ring if you will that has to be iron are made out of aluminum, they're made out of stamps, steal all these different components that all these different alloys that. Now lighter a lot lighter. She can take twenty to forty percent of the weight right road, or in some cases out and they attached to the road or using different types of technology. We have a lightweight rotor that we use a lot with Mercedes, for example. That's actually a press fit. So there's no attachments in actually almost stamps it. I don't know a half a dozen fasteners, and they always something. Right. Exactly. And that's offered on current production for a lot of Mercedes vehicles. So, you know, that's an interesting technology. And then we have the fastener world, which you see a lot of two piece we've been selling those for years, that's a very tricky technology, and but we've mastered that obviously from technology standpoint, I can't imagine the difficulty in the press fit because there's so much heat cycling so much expanding and shrinking of medals that, you know, it's funny. The two piece rotors one of the benefits that we find is. You know, we talk about rotors taking a lot of heat. And they are they're the item it takes heat. But you get that all the problems. You have with that heat in road where it more or less warps. And you get you know, the juddered and everything else you see you don't get as much of it with two piece rotor because of that separation. If you will between the Tirias, you know, think about it when you if you have something that was totally fixed. You heat it up and can't move. It has no choice, but to warp. All right. But when you have to piece rotor if there's a lot of heat, first of all, you get a lot more. You get a lot more exit points for the heat. The second of all it's not pinned if you will. So it doesn't really wanna warp the hat section stays where it is..
