"Face mosques a million of them just some of the precious cargo being dispatched to all corners of Africa by the UN as the continent braces for the spread of cove in nineteen managing. This huge task is Amanda Dowdy Senior Director of Operations for the World Food Program will WFP in online interview with you. An uses Daniel Johnson Jordanian national. Mr Dodie takes us behind the scenes at the agency's humanitarian hub in the European capital. Addis Ababa where a U N Wide Supply Chain. Operation is now in full swing. The flights game some came from China on some came from Dubai. It was a combined shipment of Jack Ma Foundation and who own supplies? They arrived in Addis on Tuesday and from there we are moving only consignments to almost fifty countries across Africa so far we have moved up to thirty countries and every day we are completing that consignment right so on the ground then from Addis Ababa. You've reached around thirty countries as you say what's the the final figure Africa now if we African country which ones have called for help. And how is the decision taken about which ones are helped look going to all the African countries in accordance with ovulation in accordance with needs? But the most in need are where the number of cases are flaring up. We have cases in west Africa in Senegal as well as in southern Africa and flights. Today just give me a picture of actually what's happening on the ground in Addis at the humanitarian hub. Everything is working. We allocate the basically parcel or or kit the cargo in accordance to fly throughout that we have so the lanes will depart at this angle to multiple countries. Come back and pick up again. Another would go to multiple vendors. Of course we're using several airplanes in order to reach a maximum. I think today the plan is for thirty countries to receive the locations today and what particular protocols are in place to prevent caveat nineteen transmission. We follow all the procedures in terms of the guidelines of w the national health guidelines. That are in place the social distancing but we also are in a way in even when we transfer Scott Every manager in place including spraying the planes in short that there is no cross contamination even from parcells coming so we follow according to a yet according to Keio we are abiding by these owes to the letter in terms of what happened today when it reaches the country in question. How is the aid distributed? And how you show that. It's getting to where it needs to go. It's the handed over to the Ministry of of the Spectrum Authority of the member states. It's not exactly going to UN agencies or NGOs this is going to member states and the government authorities W in coordination with the local government authorities ensures that all the aid or assistance in terms of medical supplies goes to work. It is neat. Could you say this is an historic sort of arrangement to show solidarity in terms of keeping supply chains going because the secretary general has expressed a lot of concern about global supply chains when code actually hits because yes African countries that have been affected already? But it's really nothing compared with what is going to happen. This was the first flight from Addis. Ababa it was the first test for the international hub as transshipment on to the rest of Africa but also in terms of passenger because as part of our response to call with is a neighboring humanitarian and the health responding to reach the countries. And we are going to be using episode for establishing passenger service again to East Africa would be establishing multiple bessinger services. Because as you know commercial air traffic is moralists suspended so we will be establishing these passenger services to ensure that responders humanitarian workers and all the personnel needed to mitigate a fight. This virus can arrive in countries where they need to and they can also leave where they need to go so we are enabling the humanitarian and responds. To be able to mitigate against this virus. This is Africa. Were talking about. So how is the World Food Program helping places like Yemen? Syria Wall Art of the hub. Will also be providing. It's not only for Africa. It we will be using part of the others as well or Yemen for example but this is not the only in Africa we would have one enact ca one in this above and one in South Africa we have a hop ensue bank in Malaysia for Asia and we have a hump in Dubai for the Middle East. And we have a hub in Panama for Latin American for Central America. So these are all going to be coming online as we speak and they would serve as the respective regions both in terms of cargo as well as in terms of personnel the eventual aim is to help ninety five countries in total all. Actually probably it's GONNA reach almost Henry Than Twenty affected countries so we have the capacity to scale up as needed of course if the funding is provided of course and. How much funding do you need? You're asking what three hundred fifty million dollars. How much do you have so far? We entered sixty was initial request. Now we are revising these figures depending on the data that we are getting supplies. As the sourcing and manufacturing increases we will be increasing our air assets in order to make sure that the supplies getting time to the affected countries enter the countries that needs.

I. god what it needed and what it wanted exactly and and evidence of that is you don't hear the FBI complaining he's right a former senior government official familiar with the investigation told us that the FBI would have preferred to work along side crowd strikes investigators but the Democratic National Committee decided to give the bureau digital copies of its servers instead the official told us this was acceptable in fact even typical in FBI investigations the F. B. I. use the data to help indict twelve Russian intelligence agents for hacking the DNC but Mr trump's tweets persisted why did the DNC refused to turn over its server to the FBI and where are hidden and smashed DNC servers there were more than one hundred forty servers and the Democrats network but Mr trump created an image of a single box of incriminating information where is the server I want to know where is the server and what is the server saying with that being said all I can do is ask the question my people came to me Dan coats came to me and some others they said they think it's Russia I have president Putin he just said it's not Russia I will say this I don't see any reason why it would be but I really do want to see the server that statement leading Russia off the hook course president trump to issue a retraction the next day we'll probably through all of this Vladimir Putin wasn't just standing idly by he was working to shift blame away from Russia what we can say is that Russia did what Russia dies and that is piling on they amplify those narratives in ways that than advance Russia's own interests they look for conspiracy theories that are already out there they're picking up on elements or narratives that already exist in a society and amplifying those narratives that advance Russian interests the interested Putin was to drive a wedge between his enemy Ukrainian and Ukraine's most important ally the United States I successful prosperous western oriented Ukraine provides a direct threat to Putin's hold on power he can't how the successful Ukraine on his southern border because then it demonstrates to Russians what is possible we need to weeks after Mr trump's inauguration Hooton said in this news conference you it was not Russia that help Donald Trump but Ukraine that helped Hillary Clinton Russian media and U. S. conspiracy websites began to spend suspicion of Ukraine ultimately those rumors appealed to Mr trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani who was working to discredit the investigations of Russian meddling in twenty sixteen and there were concerns that there was another game being played another channel that Mr Giuliani was involved as head of the U. S. embassy in Ukraine bill Taylor was frustrated that Giuliani was agitating for investigations that were never official US policy did anyone at the state department ever direct you to investigate whether there was a server in Ukraine so why not no internet search for no one perhaps except the president in twenty seventeen for the first time he added Ukraine to the story of the server in an interview he said why wouldn't Hillary Clinton allow the FBI to see the server they brought in another company that I hear is Ukrainian based crown strike the reporter asked that's what I heard I heard it's owned by a very rich Ukrainian the securities and exchange commission shows that crowd strike is incorporated in Delaware and based in California it's larger shareholders are American venture capital firms over the years crowd strike has been hired by both the democratic and Republican parties so the server they say is held by a company whose primary ownership individual is from you perfect I'd like to see the server are there any links to your knowledge between crowd strike and anyone in Ukraine not to my knowledge was this something that the embassy was concerned about no during the investigation you were leading the crowd strike ever send any of the DNC's computer hardware to Ukraine now that that is that is insane and that is not within the realm of reality last July reality suffered a final blow the story Mr trump first adopted as a server the FBI was blocked from seeing and then became the server investigated by a Ukrainian company finally morphed into the server hidden in Ukraine in the call after the Ukrainian president ask for anti tank missiles to defend himself from Russia Mr trump replied I would like you to do us a favor though they say crowd strike I guess you have one of your wealthy people the server they say you crane hazard this was the first favor Mr trump asked for even before his request that Ukraine also investigate the son of vice president Biden this past November Mr trump spoke by phone to fox and friends the server to cloud strife or whatever it's called which is a country which is a company owned by a very wealthy Ukrainian and I still want to see that server you know the F. B. I.'s never gotten that server that's a big part of this whole thing why did they give it to Ukrainian company they did that are you sure the David to Ukraine well that's what the word is the word that Ukraine was involved was amplified by the president's defenders in the impeachment inquired think pointed to a twenty sixteen opinion article and social media posts written by Ukrainians that were critical of Mr trump as though they were equivalent to Russia's covert campaign targeting U. S. computer networks voting systems and social media Fiona hill Mr trump's former senior director for Russia on the National Security Council warned the committee some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country and that pops somehow for some reason Ukraine days this is a fictional narrative that is being perpetrated in propagated by the Russian security services themselves what are the chances that this whispering campaign about a Democratic National Committee server in Ukraine is actually a Russian intelligence operation the Russian disinformation operation the Russians are very good and fast it's these fake stories that they have propagated and that's what they do they do it pretty well we have to be on guard against the that is the diversity from Vladimir Putin's perspective it worked last November as impeachment played out in America's next election season was under way he said at this forum thank god no one is accusing us of interfering in the U. S. selections anymore now they're accusing you cranes assembly not we reached out to the White House multiple times on this story but they did not

Experts share what you need to know about traveling during the coronavirus outbreak

"Today. We're going to talk all things. Wuhan Corona virus with our very own. Dr Han Li who senior director of medical affairs at our sister site health line. Dr Lee thank you so much for joining us today. A lot of things have been happening day by day. We're recording this episode assode on Monday February third higher level. What's going on with the corona virus so at the high level? The Corona virus seems to still be spreading. We're still L. hearing of increased cases of New Infections and additional deaths. Right now I think we're at around three hundred and sixty one deaths. The vast majority of deaths are occurring in China and the vast majority of the cases are occurring in China. But I think over the weekend the news list that the first death outside of China has occurred and it was in a forty four year old Filipino. Man after he traveled to John. Yeah I I heard that news and I was Kinda on a shock because it was my understanding that younger healthy people have nothing to worry about and we clearly don't know the medical history of this forty four year old but Should people be really concerned turned by the at this point. You're exactly right. We don't know what this man's medical history as it is surprising cause forty four year old is not considered an older person and we had up until this point and hearing that only the people who are older or who have compromised immune system or any kind of pre existing medical medical condition or respiratory condition. Were really at risk of increased mortality. So definitely we are concerned about that but at this point we don't know enough and it the worst thing we could do is to overly panicked when not enough information is known and to jump to any false conclusions. I think I think the main thing to really keep in mind as we still need to find out a lot more information. Can you describe a little bit. What are some of the symptoms that they start with and then progress into and actually is a like the flu? In fact many of the cases that have been documented Came with folks who said that they had very very mild symptoms or no symptoms at all The ones that we're hearing about the ones that make the news are the ones that are the most of here Were there presenting with respiratory distress. So you have the flu. But on top of that you're getting severe costs. High Fever and difficulty breathing to the point where people are having difficulty with shortness of breath requiring a respiratory support either with a ventilator or intimidation and so those are the ones that are really severe that require hospitalization but in a lot of the cases including the ones wants that we've seen in the US people who've been documented with the novel Krono virus are well enough to actually stay at home as long as they remain quarantined. Nineteen at home and that they're not going around potentially transmitting it to other people. What would you say to someone who said okay the world freaking out about this but the regular flu is way more deadly? Why do we care about this so much? Well it definitely is the case that you know. We're scared about this because we have a situation and we've been hearing about it a lot more in the last a couple of decades that there are these new flus or viruses and bacteria that are making the jump between animals to humans and it's frightening to rest because there's a sense of vulnerability that we don't know when it's going to happen how it's going to happen or how quickly the spread can happen before we can contain it but in actuality you're exactly right. The percentage of people who get the normal seasonal influenza is much higher and the mortality rates for those are still quite high But that's where medical information and accurate medical education is really pivotal. We had health line media. Spend a lot the time really trying to do the best. We can to make sure that we are all of our readers with the best information so that they really can't understand whether true risks are and not beats you easily led into this sense of panic because of misinformation is a big thing especially in this day of social media. I know I got multiple notable people sending me the picture of the Grotesque Bat in a bowl Claiming that the corona virus came from people eating burnt bats. What's in bowls in China? Is there any sense of truth to that. And did it definitely come from this animal market as many people are talking about yes and now so yes there is Evidence at this point that suggests that the krona virus the cause of this current spread was from the wet market. But it wasn't necessarily from eating the food per se. A lot of it is actually from close contacts. Close contact is defined as a six foot proximity to other an infected animal or an infected person. I think the scare has now come because we're originally came from an animal in close proximity with an animal now people who are in close contact contact with others who have had virus or who have the illness of the krono virus can potentially get sick as well. So that's the real concern is that we've you. were seeing the human to human transmission. We've seen the cases in California in Chicago where a recent traveler from Wuhan Came Back and unwittingly transmitted it to family member because of the close contact and this is scary because unlike Ebola which required you know bodily fluid with pretty intense contact. This seems to be passing person to person pretty easily is that why officials are really concerned. Yes so there are certain ways as you can catch an illness. Sometimes it's really requires very very close contact intimate contact but when it comes to airborne illnesses like the corona virus or the influenza influenza it can travel and respiratory droplets and was that anyone can transmit if they're infected with the virus via talking hocking coughing or sneezing in close proximity to other people which is why we always reinforce in all of our education and our content on headline media that the best thing is to practice safe precautions. If you feel sick stay at home. Don't go to work. Don't travel through mass transit if you're going to cough sneeze he's or be close to people be very mindful and respectful. Don't cost out Logan. Cover your mouth with your elbow not your hand or your shoulder cover your mouth with tissue of possible and throw that away immediately. Don't let it just sit around infecting surfaces which other people can touch and then transmit to themselves so these as a precaution that we always try to reinforce with folks to help decrease any potential cause of transmission from person to person and let's talk about airplanes so listeners of this podcasts are many of them are probably on a plane. Right now listening to this. What do you recommend in terms of wiping down your seat area? Does it make sense. I know a lot of people. People are wearing. The medical masks that people are saying are pointless for receiving Viruses in the air How do we protect ourselves on airplanes and in airports airports it makes a Lotta sense to feel particularly vulnerable when you travel because you're supposed to a lot of travelers from lots of different areas and you're in an enclosed environment with airplanes? It is particularly good to try to clean your area as much as possible as wise to travel with antibacterial wipes and antibacterial actuarial Gel. So that you can hear in your area making sure that the antibacterial Gel has at least sixty percent alcohol rate of possible and make sure show that you clean off your tray table and avoid putting things in the back seat pocket because that's really just a nice medium for bacteria one of the things things that I find very interesting. Is that when you're on a plane. There's this belief that you're really at risk and there's nothing you can do about getting sick actually you can can really help yourself by just making sure that your seat as well ventilated by using the the air that that's right above your seat a lot of folks recommend that if you turn on the air vent position it so that it forms a force field effectively front of your head that you can actually blow a lot of the Viruses and bacteria way is not gonNA be one hundred proof but it'll help in terms of making sure that your area as well ventilated. Oh so it does actually work. I think you you know everything that you can do to help yourself protect yourself. It's a good idea. You know we always say when when we have situations like this to stay in a well ventilated area. You can't always do that when you're traveling because you're on a plane that's you know you're going to circulated exactly but what you can do is just to make sure that you've got some well ventilated while circulated air around you if possible you can test yourself by putting your hands on your lap and making sure that the air is hitting you on the top of your hand. That's when you know that the air is really blowing right in front of your face interesting. I did not realize that onto the topic of facemask most of the surgical face masks that the people are wearing. I've heard do little to protect inborn viruses. It's all about not infecting others. Is that true or as long as you. You know squeezed squeezed around your nose. Do these mass do anything. Well first and foremost the CDC does not currently recommend traveling with face masks. Because at right at this point. It's not known known whether the face masks will help at all or which types of face masks will help. Not all face masks are created equally a lot of the commercially available ones. Don't have the filtration that will help protect you from the viruses. But you're right. It's also the way we use the facemask. I often see particularly when I'm traveling in the subway systems. When people where masks they were all too loosely and they think they've got it off on well and they're protecting themselves? There's a lot of hollow space and open ventilation on the sides and so it really is effectively doing nothing. The other mistake that people make is they were the same one all the time for long periods of time so whatever contamination commission is on the mass they just retain with them and they don't throw it away. These risks mass are supposed to be single. Use face masks so you're not supposed to carry read them forever. But a lot of folks do that and they touch them and they touch other surfaces and they put them back on their face thereby rendering the whole mask kind of pointless at this point the best thing is related to perform good hand washing. Wash your hands at least twenty seconds with soap and water and try to avoid touching your face particularly alertly eyes nose and mouth after you've touched other surfaces when you're in public areas like on a plane or on the subway or other mass transit.

The many ways professional organizations help product managers with Mark Adkins

"How pita evolving to keep up with the Times. So it's funny because the one thing I in kind of full disclosure sure is I have two sons I four children. Two sons oser product managers. Not that I made them do that. Once a senior product manager at Google the other one is a product manager for ten cents the Chinese company that owns we chat but they also own riot games. James and he's part of the League of legends brand so I have these two sons who think they invented product management right. No no no no. Oh No it's been around a long time. I can't remember. I don't know who to ascribe it to a friend once called it the accidental profession. That's right and I. I've always loved that term. Although it's changing right I think that's what we'll talk more today about it. It really is a legitimate profession Russian. If you will but twenty thirty years ago it was you're tapped on the shoulder you know you're working at a company and you have an engineering degree or Marketing degree or finance degree. Somebody says hey. Atkins I want you to Ron product development in like what really and boom you're a product manager and that's part of again my history with PD was when I was tapped to run a product development program. I'm like who do I return to. How do I learn it is a profession? How do I become better at it? And that's where we are today. The role of product manager product owner her and so on his exploded and I think pedia may as well position to be the keeper that Professional Association for for this community. Because the other thing I would like to add is product. Managers are in corporations. Say We're practitioners but we have a great great history with academics. We welcome service providers so one of the very unique things about PD. Ama Professional Association is we include the entire our community so it it yes. It's people incorporations is people in startups doing product development. But it's the academic people that give us the foundation that we need to be he great at innovation and it's the service providers market research companies. The the design firms that are instrumental in doing great product Komo. Yeah I think that that Nicks is really key to PD me. And what I find so appealing about it and I was having a discussion with someone. This wonderful experience. I got to train in their product managers in this large organization and the guy that brought me and it was senior director of product management for them and he was talking about what we did for the training raining. My group is all based on. PDA's body of knowledge and put my hands around that. And the reason why I chose that is instrumental in the work that I did that. I successful and it's also grounded in research every what four five years. There's this study that does about what are the best organizations doing in the space. And how does that compare to everyone else and it gives you a real appreciation for what you need to be doing right. The distinction there and his reflection on this. Was You know Chad. Yeah I've done training from all the different organizations right. I've been in product management longtime. I've never seen something that is as wide breath and as integrated as this Body knowledge that covers all the things that you really need to know. So what I'd like to do to build on that there's two elements one is going to be China. Our Program in China is going to be teaching at the University of Pittsburgh Environ January. So let me let me start with my personal program. I teach a course I in the technical title is managing medical device. RND right but I use the PEDIA may body of knowledge approach as my textbook. Because when I looked at what I'm trying to do with these graduate students who are pursuing a master's of science and bioengineering. I I I WANNA give them the full breadth of understanding of what it is to develop new products and the PDA body of knowledge is the guidebook is as a wonderful resource. So I use it personally might textbook as far as China. There's not a better example when you were talking earlier about. PM Am I and project management and Pedia. May We have a wonderful program. I've been twice to China to be representing Pedia. May It was is our former chair. Alan Anderson it really got the program going and we are certifying thousands of Chinese folks who have a PM so they were project managers but now literally the government of China wants to move up the value you chain. They WANNA be innovators. They don't WANNA be simply low. Cost manufacturing companies in a country. That just can only make cheap product. They want want to innovate and so they've turned -pedia may as their partner in developing a certification program. So if you WANNA be a product manager in China China you need to get your n. p. which is our revocation and we have literally trained thousands and thousands of Chinese and it grows every a year so I think it's a wonderful example of this differentiation and the move up if you WANNA call it. The value chain from project management into product management innovation. And we're doing it in China in spades. I think it's really interesting. How PD may is in? A sense has always been international nationalization but exporting what has been known as the US has capability dominance in product management to other places and China paid attention to that right an open the doors to this just as they did two PM. I sometimes goes well. Can I also add the global nature on our former tair. He's a key week he's from New Zealand. So for the last three years our chairpersons been the New Zealander so I agreed read the PDF roots are in the US but it would be complete underestimation of us to think of us as a US only organization. Yeah I I do. Think the recognized dominance in at least the area of product management has been kind of US base. Because when I talked to other people in other countries they talk about well. You guys have so much experience in that. How do we get that experience to? And this is one way. And that's awfully kind of a wakeup call. I think for product managers. If you're listening to this now certification. Should I think historically has not made a big difference in our industry frankly. I very rarely see job. Announcement saying some kind of certification is desired but if if we have thousands and thousands every year of product managers in China getting certified. It's going to start making more of a difference and it's something just to look into frankly clearly the value to me. The value of many people that have helped train for specifically for the certification isn't really getting that certification right. It's not the piece. The papers not magical but learning that body of knowledge learning the framework man if there was big light bulb moments. That went off for me as I was doing that personally. And I had the pleasure of helping to co train on that body of knowledge at last year's conference of you and I were that and I assured just my journey with that too and said when I learned about this. That was huge. I suddenly put together the pieces that I've been doing for the last ten years that I didn't really know how they fit and there were other people in the room that came up to me afterwards and said you know. lightbulbs would offer me too during the training today that I never made these connections before it was just really powerful. Really good so let's talk about the benefits associated associated with a so if people want to check out the professional organization lots of free resources available and of course it is a professional association. If you're a paid member when you get access to other things to just what's involved in those benefits I really WanNa go instead of going down into the dark details of everything everything when I reflect on my time with. PDA In this recently yesterday. On a link to impose it's been a couple apple decades of meeting fantastic people so whether you volunteer for DNA or you're just see participating or online or as part of a chapter after I can guarantee you're going to meet some of the smartest most interesting most dedicated people you'll ever meet you'll meet them through pedia and that's pretty priceless kidding. It's very priceless. And then the second thing is what you learn right. Yeah so like to your point about body of knowledge right. I tap on the shoulder twenty years ago. It's like you're in charge of product development. Oh man what does that mean. And the ability to go to the website the body of knowledge all of the books we published all the webcast we do. There's so much you can learn is part of PDA so rather than going down into the weeds of benefits in listing a dozen. You'RE GONNA meet great people and you'RE GONNA learn a lot. Just become become part of our community and I can guarantee those benefits you'll get

Do genetic ancestry tests know if youre Palestinian? A cautionary tale of race and science

"Welcome welcome to size friction on the tension ritual in. Today's episode is Genomic Science to go to striking story for you of the shocks. You can engage when you take a genetic ancestry tests and the problems are not in your Diana. They are in the science. Oh man so so I want you to make mercury eight to buy. Oh my gosh. So she's an American Palestinian cartoonist illustrator. Leaving in Brooklyn New York and when Shae Shea started to draw well I kind of helped his stop making sense of the world. When I was younger all I wanted to do withdraw from Warwick fantasy characters? who were you know exploring some fantasy world adventuring trying to figure out the meaning of war? Yeah you Matz I. She was an intense keyed. He'd sigh relate to that. I'm not even joking. That was my first comic when I was like thirteen or fourteen trying to figure out the meaning of war yes the law plot. What was really hard? Core rate was trying to figure out the world her family stories. We're helping figure out a self my family. So my my Palestinian side of the family were originally from Ramallah they came to the US in the sixties after the nineteen sixty seven war. And and. That's where my father. My mother my mother is mostly of British and Scottish ancestry and they met in DC and the register and Marguerite was born. She grew up in San Francisco but she understood whole lot about the deep heritage in history. If if family I lived with a lot of my extended family on my father's side and and the constantly I mean I think it's a very Palestinian thing to talk about loss. I'm sorry to say Palestine and talk about what was lost in talk about how it was and things like that so I heard very much about out where we were from and how it was there and everything and there is actually a book. That is a congenial logical history of Ramallah so my family needs to say his in this book. This is actually a book that was done maybe thirty years ago. There's actually a recent effort to update the books so this is kind of a big thing and it's very much a Palestinian thing to try to keep memory alive. It's a need to assure after that. Hey you know we exist who've had the we had this entire history. We're going to write it somewhere. We're going to you know. Put it somewhere. I wish I could've seen Palestine back in the day honestly because it just sounds really chill a nice. I'd like to go okay. Okay so mercury thought. She had a pretty clear idea about her ancestry but then she sped into a test tube. Well first half-brother on her father's side spat into a test tube. He decided on a whim to take a day and I taste and he got the results back in he was just blake. Yeah you might want to take a look at these results. He's her kind of weird. Well we'd in an intriguing conaway. Our understanding ending was that from my Dad's side. We were fully half Palestinian half Arab but these results they suggested something different so so we were just like what so marguerite decided to do an ancestry test to this was back in two thousand sixteen. They went through twenty three and me did the all spit in a tube and she said it off to the company twenty-three May and literally Chino. Even more surprises would be in store for her so the saliva gets to our partner lab. The DNA is extracted from that. and My name Ms Joanna Mountain and I'm senior. Director of research at twenty three and me and previously at Stanford with Joanna also did her PhD and specialized in human evolutionary evolutionary genetics. So when customers sign on with the genetic testing and Analysis Company twenty-three May which is headquartered in Silicon Valley. He's what what happens to this speech sample around a half. A million positions in the DNA are analyzed and we get the genetic variants at those half million positions genetic knitting variant. Now that just means some kind of unique variation in your genomes deny say quance so then twenty three and me use an automated computerized Haraz prices to p different stretches or windows of your day and I and then I compare those two James off a reference group made up of individuals individuals from different populations globally. Now what ethnicities are present or missing from that reference group. That's K. as you'll he'll IDA and and we look at each one of these little windows and we say to which people is this individual most genetically similar and we continue as we stroll along the genome looking and saying well at this point this genome looks very similar to people from say Iberia and then we get a little further down in. Wow it looks similar to people from commoner and even in further down. It looks similar to people from Ireland. So there's a method we have that classifies each little patch of the genome by saying. Is this more similar to people from Ireland Orland or from France and then the algorithm says okay the probability that's from Ireland and appropriately. France in whichever is highest. Is the winner there so then we patch it all together come up with percentages for each individual so it's a multi step process and that's what we present to the customer okay so back back to margarite radium waiting for the results from twenty three and May to land in her inbox and sure enough. I got I got the results back and Some of them made sense. You know I knew enough about my mother's side of the family told me that okay. HALF OF ME is British and Scottish Scottish. Okay cool makes sense what came next made very little sense to her. Other half is going on percent Italian Elian it said thirty five percent Italian and then the rest was Arab Specifically Oh what did it say. Think specifically had said western Western Asian or something they actually tried to give me a breakdown of what regions of Italy it came from but they couldn't actually detect wherein Italy. It came from at all Wade. It'll Italian come from and actually I think is sweet coincidence. Is it true that your husband is Italian. My husband is Italian and I did actually when I got the test I did ask him like do I look talion. He was just like no suddenly just like that. Migrate was possibly thirty percent Italian and only fifteen percent western Asian and north African and canete slightly saving detail that she is Palestinian heritage. We'll wait until you hear what happened. Win Twenty Twenty three and may updated her results two years later. It's fairly incredible. I though Hel genetically different we really well at the genome scale there. Her over three billion nucleotides that make up our genome. So My name is Sarah Tishkov and I may professor of genetics awesome biology at the University of Pennsylvania and she's hugely influential Sarah and colleagues published the first pipe to support the out of Africa hypothesis of human migration using analysis of the DNA inside cells Nuclei and has conducted the largest studies of genetic variation in in African populations. We differ at about. I would say less than point. One percent of the genome. So that's a relatively small mall amount of difference to give you an idea of we. Compared the human genome to a chimp genome. It differs at about one point. Five percent of the genome less than point point one percent and yet what is contained within that variation that difference the majority of variation is not functional and in fact that variation is very useful for making inferences about evolutionary history about population history demographic McGrath history tracing migration events and so on the part of the genome it actually is influencing variable traits is important for understanding how how we adapted to different environments during human evolution and also understanding why some people are more at risk for certain diseases than others

You know how that process could work. I'm curious like how you thought about building holding. You know the tools to support the education that kind of like additional things that get somebody to want to sell on at you. I think you know that first pieces is this easy is it secure is it. Is it transparent pricing. Do I know how how I'm GonNa make my money but then the next step on that is how do I become Good at this. Or how do I skill this. Or how do I improve my odds of being found. I think when we talk it's like that's but for second markets rolling building the seller marketplace. He will take a lot about because also it's not like these items already. The exists late sellers have a large eventually that they don't have one hundred items of these. I've done so it might have one or two so that that that's kind of their angle they need for holiday from R&B one maker as simple as possible but we also have peddlers all glow and what might be ready. Wait beat the item. I'd be ready in belittle mm-hmm someone in America whereas it might think many complicated somebody else in the park and we think from that angle of simple for every month but also we do a lot of education to begin with we have. We are didn't make score market but B also ethics of temps alert anywhere so we started with a lot of information out there on how to practice themselves because of our sellers are small businesses. The business savvy people all the time because candle shipping potentially. They're thinking about awesome houses different factors from helping them kind of understand bed. Do understand the largest shipping from keywords to SC or do how to best describe describe predict the best picture so we try to do a lot of education and a lot of material online but In some markets we we also also a lot of in person workshops and like not have international markets have been which is dedicated to cell. Oh goals and they go from city to city and coordinator workshops and kind of had sellers even even though we would like to use machine learning automation favorite things sometimes because we are human centered.

'We need to presume that we are in a state of war with Iran': Former envoy Brett McGurk

"Brett mcgurk served as senior director for Iraq and Afghanistan in the George W Bush White House who was also special presidential envoy to the global coalition to defeat. Asus I under President Obama and under president trump. Mr mcgurk left that role late two thousand eighteen after trump announced a plan to pull. US troops out of Syria. Mr mcgurk thank thank you so much for joining us tonight on on short notice and on a very serious evening. Thanks for having me. I know you've been following the news as we all have. I assume you've been able to talk with some of your former colleagues from from government and other experts in the region. Let me just ask your top line response to this news tonight. That the head of the KUDZU force Qassem Soleimani has been killed in a US military strike in back that way as an American who has served a lot of time in Iraq including including in two thousand seven two thousand eight period where we were really in a very hot war with a lot of these iranian-backed groups. I really feel that. It's it's a measure of justice done I feel that as an American someone who has been out there for a significant period of my life and I know I have colleagues who are killed by some of these groups also hearing from former colleagues in the region a lot of concern. Obviously about where this goes and I think we need to presume now as a country like it or not. We need to presume that we are in a state of war with Iran This has been a covert war shadow war for forty years But with this action. I think we need to presume to protect our people in the region to protect Dr Interests that were in a state of war with Iran and that is not something that the trump administration appears to have been prepared for. I mean they're they're national. Security Strategy is actually premised on the notion of getting out of the Middle East commitments and reprioritising to Asia to a great power or competition against China. So I think that is now pretty much over. We're now drawn back into the Middle East and we need to be very well prepared not over coming days and weeks. I'm Ron might take some time to respond. But over the coming months and even over the coming years to protect our people and our interests It's a very serious situation if we are as you say it's to presume that we are in a state of war with Iran not that it is threatening but we are there because of this action and What should Americans expect from a war with Iran? What should we expect in terms of risk to the United States into US US allies and U. S. forces in assets around the world? Well it means that we are now we have been trying now really for two ministrations restrictions to try to reprioritize out of the Middle East Because there's just such a resource kind of black hole for us and we tried to do that in various ways ways and it turns out now to ministrations. We're kind of sucked back in. I think it would be very difficult now to to really significantly move forces and resources out. I mean president trump. Even as he says he's bringing forces out of the Middle East he's actually sent fifteen thousand troops in the Middle East since May because of the increasing tensions against Iran on and because of the consequences that began on fold when he got out of the Iran. Deal another thing here if you want to take on a situation like this and set a very very maximalist objective which is basically to bring down the Iranian regime. That seems to be a policy that is a maximalist objective for which we very few allies You know in Iraq right now it's not just. US troops. We have. And I was a part of this effort to build a coalition. So we didn't do this on our own. We built a coalition of almost almost twenty military contributors interact with US France. UK Denmark Australia New Zealand. They're all interact with us And they are on these bases and facilities with us and has been a very successful endeavor. I think they're all AL also asking what comes next just on that point. A strategic risk is that we'll be asked to leave Iraq. I think the Iraqi government now is extremely weak There's a protest movement kind of a dual protest movement among Shia groups. Some of whom are backed by Iran. Some of these young patriotic liberal oriented Iraqis WANNA see significant reforms with. That's going to be very difficult. And there's a very good chance now. The Iraqis will ask us to leave Iraq. which would open up another vacuum which would be filled by extremist groups both on the Iranian backside and Isis so all the gains against Isis over last five years could also begin to unravel all that said? I want to emphasize that as an American I feel that this is a measure of justice but I'm also concerned that the second and third order consequences have not been adequately prepared for and I think it's incumbent upon Congress Congress and others to demand answers to those questions.

"Our capabilities of a smartphone with no code and low code tool so for example One of the surprise hits to me is we're building being a component called the business card scanner and all that really does is that it takes. The phone's camera scans business card and then creates a contact it in salesforce but like you said earlier a lot of sales reps what they have to do is they go through all these sales meetings and on Friday afternoon. They just want to get home but they have have to do. A bunch of data entry part of the data entry is all the business cards. They got that week. They have to create contact records in sales for. How do we do that in a way? So that we take that pain from the users and immediately just create that sales for so the way we're building is we're creating a barcode scanner. We're we're creating a business card scanner. We're getting a document scanner and basically taking all these things that were easier to do with pen and paper and making it an in order magnitude easier to do with the salesforce mobile APP but I think the magic really is for salesforce admins. NCO's is being able to roll. These is futures out using no code and low code tools so what will happen is all these components. They're just lighting components. We'll just be part of the lightning APP builder so an Admin who does not have a degree potentially in or has not spent the last five years of their life. Doing machine learning can go the lightning APP builder and drag and drop these components into the salesforce mobile APP and immediately deployed these to their users does really cool I. It is definitely a request for For feature that I've had in my life since I started selling many years ago. man you'd get a stack of business cards after a conference you'd have like fifteen or like. How am I ever going to ask all these? Yeah absolutely and most of the time. They don't have the time to do so or for those sales reps that love taking notes still on their pen and paper. What we're trying to do is find a way so that you can take a picture of your notes and have that that immediately get entered into salesforce without you having to deal bunch of data entry? What about a how would that potentially intially be able to make user experience even easier the way I look at a I is that one way to look at? It is wouldn't be great if a feature got better the more you used it. And that's what I think. The main purpose of AI is is is to learn from a user's behavior what information is important to them and surface that so that there's less taps and there's less clicks flakes to get to what they need. Yeah it's a great point and one of the great applications of. Ai is search especially on your phone where let's say your Sales Rep. You're on the go you're in between meetings and you just need to find information about this account that you're about to meet with the thing is let's say there's thousands of sales reps in your company and there's many accounts of similar names for example. And so you're in between meetings or searching for something nothing on your phone you can find that account the great thing about the updates were making to search on the salesforce mobile APP is with Ai. It learns which accounts are most is important to you so as you start typing it actually shows these accounts that we predict are really important to us so that lessons amount of taps and user frustration of. Hey No that wasn't that count. I was looking for the other account. Do you think that you know with things like Ai. Okay and building that into an APP that you know every company going forward. Is it easier to be able to build that functionality into an APP rather than you know on your website or via browser that certainly. We're trying to do. We're trying to make it so that is just built into every feature a is just built into lightening components So you can use your local Noko tools to just add. Add them to your APP. I think they are incredibly important to websites Incredibly important to people who use their laptops and desktops but as you you mentioned earlier it's super important when you have a small screen for that small screen for that apt to do the heavy lifting for you and that's what really helps helps with. And that's what makes features an order of magnitude better than what they were before because ultimately you know it's about saving time and if okay is decreasing your search time or things like that it's going to be way advantageous and then the other piece of that is being predictive. You know like like. Hey you're near this company's headquarters and you haven't talked to them in three months. Maybe you should stop by because you should stop by Ren Headquarters quarter spot as the days right. You know things like that to actually be predictive instead of being reactive. Predictive and proactive are to Couple of my favorite words these days menu example is great another example. I uses if you had door to door sales folks and they were just just in this particular town and they visited all the all the accounts all the residences that they had slated to that day but they have extra time. The the APP should be smart enough to say this person's in this geographic location. These accounts are close to them. So I'm going to proactively. Send them a notification saying actually. Here's other accounts that you might be able to visit all right. Let's get into the lightning rounds. These questions are fast easy and the lightning round is brought to you by by the salesforce customer three sixty platform of course which you know very well.

"How they're going together in your role on the salesforce APP but first how did you get into technology in the first place? I grew up in the Philippines. Actually and in the mid nineties young kid The MIT Media Lab Organiz an online conference for about three thousand kids all over the world. My brother and I got invited. And this was the mid nineties so it was essentially a bunch of kids e mailing each other in that conference in the goal was to talk about the problems that our own countries had. And how technology could help solve those problems. And so coming from the Philippines at talked about income inequality thirty access to clean water and things like that But the really cool part about it was all. These kids spoke different languages right from Africa to South South America to North America and so the media lab had a auto email translation technology. So think of it as a really early version of Google translate blade that allowed me to communicate with kids from Africa and learn about their problems then. MIT chose about ninety kids from that three thousand than to go to mit for a week and spend time with their professors to look at emerging technologies and things like that so a week and MIT. Not after I go back to the Philippines I was really hooked to computer engineering and college and became an Ios and android developer and just took off from there. That's incredible what a cool story. Yeah it'd be so cool to go back and look over the transcripts from that totally and the the interesting interesting part was a lot of my exposure to technology was how it can help humans as opposed to building technology for technology's sake and and that's influenced my career from there. Yeah you've done a ton of work in healthcare specifically around designing applications locations You founded in we're CEO come to call healthcare. Love told me a little bit about that. Yeah this was when universal health care is was was a huge topic and the United States and I wanted to find a way to make to use technology. Use My expertise to help people find the right healthcare plans for them and so that was one of the things that I thought. Hey technology could really help with this space. Yeah and so funny enough You end up learning about the salesforce Million Dollar Kathan like tell me. Tell me about this. You know the funny part was we. Ah Couple of friends and I were having a barbecue in San Rafael and one of them said you guys should really join this Hackworth on and personally I I. Don't I don't like hacker cons just because it's It's kind of it's kind of a crapshoot and whether you win or not And what the judging criteria is bots I heard a lot of good things about salesforce and it was a million dollar Hackworth on so I said why not so three of US decided to look. What's what's the biggest problem that Americans have one of it is access to health care? How can we use salesforce to make that easier for them? So we built this beautiful easy to use IPAD APP that essentially used salesforce as an API for people to be able to pick the healthcare plans that are right from them based on their income level all based on their family and so on so spoken like a true developer that you don't like how cons because of the judging criteria. Yeah that's pretty great. So yeah what happened so we. We entered and no expectations at all. And then the Sunday night before dream force in two thousand thirteen we got an email from sales for saying hey show up at dream force at eight. Am Tomorrow Tomorrow. You're going to present your APP to about five hundred thousand people at reinforce and you're just going to do a demo in front of the judges and and so showed up. Had No idea what to expect. I had no idea. There's one hundred thousand people at the conference and that they closed down half of San Francisco for it Demo and forevermark benef- Parker Harris In a lot of the execs ended up actually winning first place and was was grateful for the experience. That's so cool. And so then what and then you kind of went back and and Delta company around this did you already have the company. Yeah I took a a year to see what's what we could do in the healthcare space to start a company around it but it was also one of the most humbling experience of experiences of my life on how hard it is to build and maintain and make a company successful and after.

Apple changes Crimea map to meet Russian demands

"Last week I said apple had a potentially difficult decision coming up in Russia if the company's latest action there is any indication. A lot of people probably won't like it's decision. The story story last week was of a new Russian law that would require apple to ship. IPHONES IPADS Max. And other devices to be sold in Russia with Russian Shen made APPS preinstalled lawmakers in the country say the inclusion is simply to ensure parody to make sure that people know of russian-made alternatives lives to largely Western apps. Those opposed to the law. Worry that the Russian APPS will be used to spy on the citizenry. If apple wants to keep selling devices in Russia it seems it will have to comply hence a potentially difficult decision when the law goes into effect in July of twenty twenty. I say a lot of people probably won't like it's likely decision based on a move made by the company last week the BBC ran a piece saying apple. All has complied with Russian demands. To show the annexed Crimean Peninsula as part of Russian territory on its APPs reminding readers of the issue the BBC says Russian forces annexed Crimea from Ukraine and March two thousand fourteen drawing international condemnation until recently family apple showed Crimea as part of Ukraine. And if you check your map it probably still does. While the State Duma. The lower house of Russia's is parliament says Crimea and Sevastopol now appear on apple devices as Russian territory. Apparently only true for devices set to use the APP store her for Russia according to the report apple had been in talks with Russia for several months over what the State Duma described as inaccuracy in the way Crimea was labeled labeled the company had wanted to show Crimea as undefined territory part of neither Russia nor Ukraine. It was at that point that Russian authorities authorities reminded apple that labelling Crimea as part of Ukrainian territory was a criminal offence under Russian law. Now it's part Russia as far as apple's concerned as long as you're inside Russia while the BBC piece was written before apple offered comment. Philip Philip Elmer dewitt's apple three dot had the Cupertino Company offering a statement. That side had trudy Muller Apple Senior Director. PR saying we would. I'd like to clarify for our customers around the world that we have not made any changes to apple maps regarding Crimea outside of Russia where a new law went into effect it requires us to update the map within Russia we review international law as well as relevant. US and other domestic laws before making a determination and labeling Our maps and make changes if required by law.

U.S. consumer confidence falls for the fourth month in a row

"There are some economic indicators that you you can really wrap your brain around right. The unemployment rate for instance or the number of new homes built in a given month. Both of those are tangible. Easily understood for the the most part sometimes though you get a report that while interesting and informative is also a bit squishy like the one we got today something something called the Consumer Confidence Index could give you the number but it's probably not gonNA mean anything to you one hundred twenty five point five. I mean I mean it's pretty strong actually and historically but it's also the fourth month straight that consumer confidence has gone down the question really though especially the important given how critical consumers are to this economy at this moment is what exactly consumer confidence is anyway.

Consumer Confidence Declines Again in November

"With some consumer confidence numbers came out this morning and declining for the fourth consecutive month to get some more color we welcome Lynn Franco Lynn is the senior director of economic indicators at the conference board joining us on the phone went thanks so much for joining us what the data tell you this morning about the consumer well we had a little bit of a difference you know the four shot months in a row now that we've had a decline but overall consumers remain very competent job we think that you know the slowing that we're seeing in employment growth is probably one of the main reasons for the softening incompetence but we think we're still poised to have a pretty good holiday season you said whatever you come on here you say one month does not make a trend but we have no for months this is no make a trend it makes a little bit of a trend and I think it's very much in keeping in line with the weakening that we've seen in Q. four and a bright spot here is that expectations actually went up so that tells us that while consumers are well aware that the economy has softened they don't expect that trend to continue such a going forward let's just keep an eye on what happens in terms of the present situation now but for now even though we've seen a softening incompetent I don't think it's time to sort of you know raise a red flag attention when we had the confidence number come out this morning that to them you're discussing but we also very strong housing numbers that came out this morning how does housing fit into how your index works well I think it's a very good sign now and also should give that consumer some comfort that wishing you know strengthening in the housing market and that sort of one of the tellers but the key thing here is going to be what happens in terms of of job growth and you know we've seen some softening their hands the softening incompetent so we'll continue to monitor those very closely limit one thing that we've seen is a divergence in confidence according to class in terms of higher income versus lower income what do you sing on that working absolutely the same thing those in sort of the upper income groups who have probably benefited more from home price appreciation from the stock market appreciation are relatively much more competent then does share on the stricter budget so that I'm wondering whether we can infer anything from the trend line and lower income Americans in other words if that tends to be a as for Canary in terms of where the overall trend is going to go I don't think we have any canaries as of yet but we have seen throughout this recovery that it's always been sort of a tale of two consumers and those in the upper income have always been you know much more competent again I think benefiting from from housing and stock prices you know going forward if we continue to see a softening in the job market if we continue to see a deterioration in the present situation index then I think we could say that you know the economy is going to maybe decelerate even further out but for now it looks like we're going to maintain this sort of two percent growth rate heading into early twenty twenty does your Linda's your index your survey this week capture any the uncertainty that consumers may have about global trade yes we do ask a question does going to the actual report enact online may have sparked a few months ago is really sort of under the radar at the moment so it doesn't change that you know whether it's global trade whether it's impeachment hearings or any of that is really having a significant impact it's more sort of about the basics of a softening in business conditions and a softening and

You're you're actually yelling which I'm excited to be here because you eighty percent yes I think so. Of course you're unemployed. I am you have no income none. You are just sitting there kind of. Yeah Yeah Conduct. Geo were you playing playstation for six and a half years you left as the senior director of Global Second Party Games a place to correct. Uh why did you leave. This is I don't know if you notice this you left we. There was a lot of theories a lot of things floating around in freefall. What's happening no no no no? It was a personal decision of mine. Fine I've always been nomadic. I've been I'm usually arrive in four or five years. Ido Place in with playstation had been there for six and a half years so for me it was the longest it ever been similar You know it's a second party thing was going really well. I was working with Scott. Rhodie and Shoe Sean. Air was just awesome. And you know we'd accomplished so much with third party with Adam boys and Phil Rosenberg and all those guys so you know it for me. I just over. The last year started having that itch like it's try something new. It's time to try something something different. And you know I would love to say that everything is awesome and you know there are some personal things that I wanted to change about my employment and whatnot but then I had to real big personal things. Happen to me. With the death of my father-in-law and the death of my dog Laverne and I was just like okay. You know what let's take a break here. Let's let's let's make a cut and let's take two months off to kind of recalibrate until you energize and whatnot and You know I had a good long conversation with Scott. He he totally got it. I talked to my team there John and the rest were just like Yup. We get it and I just needed to do it for myself to sometimes you need to take those breaks sabbaticals and just kind of recalibrate. And that's exactly what I did and I feel already two weeks in and I feel better for it for doing it but it was. I mean honestly. There was nothing bad going. On at playstation it was for me it was time for a change six years. When you look back what are you proud of WHO? Well I gotTa say twenty. Five years in the industry never having launched console before and being part of that. PS Four launch team was Was Pretty exciting. Granted I was only there for the the Seven months leading up to the actual launch and a lot of stuff had already been done sir to be there while it was all coming together and to be there to see it actually launch and then see the reception of the platform and you know I was a developer for a long time beforehand and trying to work with playstation during the. PS three days was not exactly easy. Yeah and when Adam came on board obviously adamant I have known each other for years going back to Canada here. Yeah there where everybody knows knows each other. Well that's true. There's more like six of us so you get it. You know we already the first conversation we had how difficult it is for developers to To get their games onto the platform and he was like. That's what we're trying to change. So I I remember that sticking with me and then when I joined playstation he was true to his word and that was what the entire third party publisher and developer team was trying to do was change. The way that playstation had relationships with its partners and obviously was successful so I totally totally proud to be part of that and of course you know I brought my trustee Vita here. This is mine. This is My boy blue here. you know I. It always was my favorite it platform even before I joined Sony and Just being able to bring some games onto it granted games. What you'd better some sure? Sure sure but You you know and granted we weren't able to bring all the games that we wanted or some of the much larger titles but we still brought dozens of titles to this little platform for me.

"I don't know if that breaks my heart or if i find that exciting i honestly i honestly can't tell all right. That is the sort of thing you've been working working on and is again like where does where does the idea for the talking top hat. Come from similar meanings so we are in a pitch meeting looking at other trends that were happening and said voice voice recognition is here to stay. It's part of everybody's life and it's growing at this rapid pace. So how do we bring a gameplay experience to kids today that are familiar millier with voice technology and make monopoly game as if it was created for kids today. It would have that technology in it. Do you have like a creative teams of just like sits around the unlike tries to dream up this stuff like madmen style at their sitting room tearing their hair out like what's the next monopoly thing or like. Is it mostly. Just you know brands coming to you and say like what what's the balance there. It's a great question. We do that a lot. So you asked about my day to day. We have whiteboards and we sit in our office and we go through trending subjects. Which ones do we like this week. Which ones do we not wanna do. Can we make a game out of this. How do we bring this to life and the design team takes those ideas in comes back with a playable example and we sit down two days later and say is this fun. Can we add more game play to this or should we try a new idea. You you've mentioned tracking trends bunch. Lie saying what what's trending. How are you doing now. What data are you looking at. What services are you using. What what do you mean when you say you're tracking a trend or looking for the big trends that everyone's talking about so it's definitely you know a team effort on our side and everybody's passionate about this so we have different different departments here that drive consumer insights what our kids talking about what are adults talking about what are they playing together and then we have services services that we partner with so a lot of that is kind of our proprietary information of how we find the next best thing and some of these trends are for older audiences is and may not be a perfect fit with ten year olds or eleven year olds and then some things start with ten year olds so it's looking at where these trends start and and you know following the path to see what spikes when and sometimes we're right at the right time and sometimes we're a little late and sometimes we're a little early. I'm still trying to understand what it means for. Are you to be like tracking a trend for ten year olds. What information is being given to you. Is it a memo or a spreadsheet or something or like what is it you are looking at ingesting adjusting so a lot of it is scraps. I would say like actually looking at the information were usually in a database where you can start searching by subject and then then we take a subject and we go back to our supporting insights team and we can go do a survey we can go. Ask you know a thousand kids or their parents earns with their kids permission. If this is something that they like that they talk about a lot of things that happen we get from our employees and their families or their friends and families families because if enough kids are talking about it you know we hear about it pretty quickly and we realize we should pivot and bring something to market okay so there's a little bit of database searching and a lot of consumer research digging and then there's also just kind of gut instinct. Hey my nephew told me about this thing. Yeah and we always say you know party of one. If you're you know you have your gut feeling about something or then your family of two or three or four depending on if you have kids input or not and then when you see multiple kids doing the same thing and we bring cans to has where every day every other thursday we have a group in here to play games with and they're different kids so they'll give us different.

"I wanna go through again. You've got game of thrones version. A stranger stranger things version a lion king version. I mean this sounds like a list of every huge entertainment property that that come out and like the last three years or the sort of is that sort of the name of the game here yes so it's very exciting. We wanna be as topical and make sure that monopoly is part of everyday life if with all the brands that everybody knows and loves so whether it's a t._v. Show that they're streaming a movie or just an experience that they wanna be part of. We wanna make sure monopolies is there to capture new fans and be part of that experience. How does game of thrones or lion king monopoly happen is there is there someone does that come from hasbro hasbro going to disney or to h._b._o. Or do they come to you. Guess so it's a little bit of both we love working with our partners. When we see something that we feel like is big enough that we want to be part of we call them up and we see if they want to be part of monopoly or vice versa and they call us and we've worked with disney and marvel and lucas for a long time so we've had multiple versions of different star wars experiences and we felt like this year with vendors and the end game we wanted to a really special version urgen with all of the token so we did a a more premium version that sold out upon launch when we timed it with the movie so it's working with all these different different partners we want to be a part of their experiences and they want to be part of monopoly which is great the avengers version. Were you trying to like instead of utilities. You're trying to get power stones or yeah well. What were you collecting exactly yeah so each game is different depending on the property and the story. We're trying to tell that one. We actually had thirteen tokens tokens that were all of the different vendors so it was kind of their last time where they were going to assemble and then we couldn't give away any of the plot twists so we waited and launched with marvel with the movie so you have to check that one out okay so you were to create a commemorative version this sold out and it's <unk> on shelf today where we're getting back and stock depending on which location you're looking for it. Who's the audience buying your marketing person. You have to know so who who's buying the avengers ventures monopoly so it's kind of a mix. It's kinda for everyone feel like they're the marvel fandom has definitely brought in and we see it more as a family experience across all of our brand we wanna make sure we're as inclusive as possible and we look at the age grades and the play experience so some games are eight plus. Some are ten plus some are thirteen plus and it kind of depends on the content so if stranger things is for an older audience we wanna make sure we're targeting adults or millennials or or anyone fan of the show and then avengers. We went a little bit more of a collector route. We really wanted to be family friendly and make sure kids could join in as well so we make the gameplay play and we have a team here and we'll play the games and we test them over and over and over to make sure that everyone can play and then we bring in people to test them with us as well so that by the time you guys all the game monopoly believe it or not the math has to work so you can get a winner at the end so you're you're changing the rules for each version of ladies in some way yes so every version is unique in the past. We've made versions where you take classic monopoly..

You're the monopolist. I i am the queen of all things monopoly right now. It is quite the drive at hasbro with a brand. That's eighty four years old. We constantly are looking for what can we do new and every person i ever meet says. What are you doin' monopoly. There's just so many things that we can uncover in this game. What does it mean to run run. Monopoly may be the most well-known board game at this point in america. It is definitely the most well-known board game in america and actually in the world. It's in in over sixty countries in over forty different languages and everybody thinks monopoly was made for them in the country that they live in because there's different bird spaces for each one so if you grew up in the u._s. you of course have park place boardwalk and other markets have different locations as their park place in boardwalk. So how would you break down the pieces of your job. What does it mean to run this game to be kind of overseer of the queen of it as you put it the queen of monopoly so we you kind of look at the brand from the board up to kind of use a double entendre there between monopoly so within the game. There's classic elements that we have <unk> been handed down from other brand managers and consumers within the you know the jail space passing go collect two hundred dollars free parking so we take all the classic elements with the tokens and then we look at the game and say this year. How do we give it a new fresh overhaul for consumers today ed. How do we make it as modern relevant as fun as if the board game monopoly was invented today we have so many different versions in iterations that we can bring to the market so your your job is to keep coming up with fresh spins on monopoly fresh spins from board games at retail to digital gaming experiences. If you've seen it in the slot atm machines at casinos everybody's heard of mcdonald's promotion. How do you make monopoly feel like everybody can be part of the brand where they're they're anomaly. Slot art machines lots of slot machines. There scratch tickets casino machines different versions of it. We have a ton of online as well and then all of our mobile games uh-huh so everybody can play monopoly wherever they are and so it's your job to kind of oversee the brand extension of monopoly of this eighty four year old game yeah exactly glazed so i i lead the marketing team and we have teams that work on product development with us we have licensed partners that create these games using the essence of monopoly and we meet with them regularly and go through everything that we can bring to life and make sure that any person looking at it feels like this monopoly was created for me. So what are some examples of of new monopoly spinoffs takes versions that you've come up with lately so we of course have classic monopoly which everybody knows not everybody loves of you know the classic game can take hours or you play it with the rules. Maybe two hours so we wanna make sure with consumers. Today they have less time in their day and they can be fan groups and have grown up with monopoly so this past spring we launched our game of thrones edition and it was the first time we added a music..

"Well. You know, it keeps from division racist getting clinched. It keeps any team from being eliminated too soon. If you still have all those division games left to play those late season division games have been a big hit. I think it's worked pretty well. For the most part we've been pretty fortunate the week seventeen where we have all division games. We had hoped would lead to some of those games in week seventeen especially when we could put on Sunday night football game to fifty six that, you know, has playoff implications and something like the last ten years, I think eight of them have had a game to fifty six with the division championship on. Hey, the bills schedule another interesting aspect of it all the road games early. The bills paid five of the first seven on the road for the last five have been on the road. This is only our third home game this year the bills push back when the schedule came out with and then again, December games, which you are cold here, December even for these hardy bills fan. Yeah. No doubt. Like, I said the league office is trying to figure out that right balance between revenue from television partners and also competitive for the teams every team has to make that same decision as well. You know, if you're the Buffalo Bills on the one hand, you know that it's cold. December and your fans have told you, hey, Radic amount in September and October on the other hand if you're a coach you'd love to get these home games in December, especially if there's a playoff berth on the line. So coming off the playoff season last year. The thought was not necessarily to minimize the home games in December any longer. Hopefully, those games do have some meaning and and hopefully it's not to call. Yeah. We're with Mike north the NFL's senior director broadcast planning and scheduling, Mike the schedule. I it's done by computer. But there also is a handcrafted aspect of the schedule. Right. Yeah. No doubt. I mean, the computers are incredible. There's so much smarter and so much faster than they've ever been. And obviously they can do in seconds. What it would take us a lifetime to do? Just in terms of the math. But they're also stupid. You know, they do what they're told some human has to sit there and has to make a decision and the head of the broadcasting department or the scheduling czar Howard Katz been doing it about fifteen years. And that's the guy that's got to stand on the wall and stand in front of ownership and explain why you got the prime time game. And you didn't tell NBC why you didn't get patriots Steelers. We gave that to CBS instead. So yeah, the computers will do what they're told. But somebody's gotta make some key decisions. Right up front. There's a scheduling aspect the last couple of years, which I can't think through it. Why it happened this way? But sometimes Brinson NFC games to NFC opponents wind up on CBS, typically, the AFC network. How does that happen? And why does that have the simplest way to explain it is that if you're looking at a FOX one o'clock Sunday afternoon window, let's say you can have a Packers bears game in there. You can have an eagles giant's game there. You can have a falcons panther's game in there. You might have three or four really good games. Any one of which could probably stand alone. Go to one hundred percent on a Monday night or a Thursday night. What happens on a one o'clock window on a Sunday? Is it sometimes you get a big game that gets buried a little bit. It might only go to fifteen twenty percent of the country. So we use what we call cross flags and you could flex the game across the aisle from FOX CBS or back take a game that might be underexposed on one network. Put it on the other network and get it a little bigger audience the Sunday flex games. Now. What are the considerations that go into putting a game on Sunday inflexibly game into Sunday night? Yeah. Well, the first thing is we make a Sunday night football schedule for NBC in April. When the schedule comes out and last year, for instance, we didn't flex out of any. So the crystal ball was good last April. We got all correct guesses for Sunday night. Football this year already had to flex out of one. We put Cincinnati Casey in the prime time last weekend. Great game, by the way, the best laid plans, right? As you look ahead to this year. There's probably another one or two where you know. It's not as good as we had hoped back in April. And so what you do is you look for a game on Sunday afternoon. Same thing. It might only go to twenty five percent of the country. If it stays at one o'clock instead you can move into Sunday night at eight thirty to one hundred percent of the audience and let everybody see a game with clap implication. I wonder about London games. Mexico City games who determines who goes air. And how often they go. Yeah. It's a little bit of both the league office has an international department. That's working real hard with our partners in London, and in Mexico, and to a certain extent, the clubs get to volunteer. We've had I think thirty thirty two teams. Now at some point either the home or the visiting team over to London in the last ten years. So the clubs some of them reach out to the league office and say, hey, if you're looking for a London volunteer how about us or other say, hey, we'll go, but we'd rather go visiting team. Don't wanna give home. Just yet. And so trying to work to figure out how to get good games over there. And not have it be too impactful on a team schedule. Mike the last thing is you look at the schedule one Easter put together the twenty nineteen already started already. We don't know the standings matchups at, but we know two hundred and whatever it is two hundred and thirty four of the two hundred and fifty six though, we've already started to kind of eyeball. Oh, those divisions play each other. Hey, here's a game that we haven't had for four years and interconference matchup and already starting to tinker with. Hey, that one might make sense. We do have the hundred year anniversary of the league next year. We're looking for games that we can use to celebrate the hundredth anniversary may be spread out across the season. Whether they're Super Bowl, rematches or games with historical impact. China already kind of tee up what we might be looking at for two thousand dollars difficult job. And it sounds like he could be fun to if you project try to project. What next look look look look where we are right office. We're very lucky in a game. Like this. You know, obviously, the record not what we were hoping for the bills but still patriots. The bills on Monday night football sounded like a football game in April and feels like a football game tonight will Mike, thanks. Play much pick up. Mike north is the NFL senior director of broadcast planning and scheduling joining us here as we continue on with the pre game show..
