Has been approved for use, across the are you sure he didn't do anything. Wrong I feel that I really did everything reading the direction and, everything we decided to go ahead with the pregnancy but well when I, hear about people having abortions It feels awful that women families end up in. That situation Jessica tie is with. The advertising standards agency here in the, UK she supervised the investigation into natural cycles and. I asked, her what she found out so we had. A complaint about Facebook ads from natural cycles, that included the claim highly accurate contraceptive app. And we had a look at the evidence and actually the evidence. Showed that when you look at how people, use it, in practice it was not highly accurate Around eight percents of, women would get pregnant, over the course of the year if they. Were using this app and is the scope for the inventors here to say well people, just weren't using it right Well we we looked at the evidence actually the vast majority of people were not using it what? What, you would cool perfectly less than ten percents of people were using it perfectly and we think that's that's the key thing here really what do people mean by perfect and imperfect use in this case well whenever you look at the evidence for any method of contraception you. Would differentiate between what's cool perfect to, use what school typical use. A so perfect uses using it completely in accordance with the instructions and. For this app that would include, inputting information about your menstrual cycle when you're having intercourse and also excuse it comes with a, thermometer so you have to import your temperature every day at a particular time and we know that for example if you're unwell or if you've been out drinking that can affect how accurate the predictions are because it will then give predictions about what you safe to, have, intercourse that day without using another Method of contraception it's perhaps understandable that that people were? Not, using it perfectly and we think that the key data is how how effective it is in practice not in this perfect world getting pregnant when you want to be pregnant is a pretty serious consequence of misleading advertising isn't it what are the sanctions against them well we.

Electric scooters having broken into the New York market quite yet Shoshana wouldn t reportedly story for the tech news website the virgin she joins us now she good morning good morning. Okay so some neighborhoods here in New, York really, are not easily accessible by subway how could these scooters fill the transportation gap so something that you see these electric scooters doing and, other cities, like California is kind of feeling that last mile gap distances that are too. Short for a car but, too long to and I think they could definitely do that here particularly in. The outer boroughs where subways might not reach all the way and we already have. This glut, of bicycles, and, the dock. Lous, bike. Share Programs here, in New York as well right. Right so they would be they would be kind of like battling whatever bikes especially Citi bike, it kind of already. In place okay here in. New York I'm assuming the scooters will face challenges do, we have the infrastructure for this New York in particular is a very crowded city we have a lot. Of we have a lot of pedestrian traffic and we have a lot of curbside space that's being regulated, for parking right now so no, matter what no matter where scooters end up if they end up. In sidewalks if they end up on the streets somebody's, going to be unhappy it's. Either going to be. The pedestrians. Bike. Riders or the people who are trying to park their cars would you write. These in the bike lane so in other? Cities that's what we're seeing but right now we still don't know and depending on how these electric scooters are going to be eventually regulated in the city that will, determine where we're riding. Them since they're a relatively new form of transportation, have other cities approached regulating, scooters so something that you'll see in a. Lot of cities is the scooter companies like burden lime kind of taking it Vantage you the lax regulations that are already in place and. Other cities what kind of catch up and kind of form regulations around the scooter companies, so some of those regulations might be, a cap on the total.
