Scientists work to make solar panels more efficient

"Installing more solar panels is one way to put more the sun's energy on the grid another is to increase the amount of power. Each panel generate the challenge for scientists is to develop solar cells that convert more of the sun's rays to electricity without making the technology too expensive. We need to take into account that when we want to improve the solar sail or increase the efficiency that the costs are exploding last year i- cocoon and other researchers at the health center for materials and energy in berlin developed. A prototype that set a new efficiency record for its class is stacks to cells on top of each other one made from silicon which is commonly used in solar cells and is good at capturing infrared light. The second is made of a low cost material called perov skype which captures visible light and as these two parts can be converted more efficiently into electrical energy. Then by just one absorbing material we can get higher efficiencies with these solar cells that means they can generate more electricity from the same amount of sunshine and help get more clean energy on the grid

A Pandemic Winner: How Zoom Beat Tech Giants To Dominate Video Chat

"Roughly one year ago. I heard colleagues referred to a meeting on zoom. It was one of those passing references where people assume you already know what they mean. But i didn't. I literally never heard of the brand within a few days. Of course i knew as did millions of others who likely had not known before. Zoom is by no means the only way for a video meeting but the company has come out ahead during the pandemic zoom is among npr's financial supporters. And we cover it like any other company. Npr's shannon bond has the company's pandemic story chief financial officer kelly steckel berg vividly remembers one specific date. Last spring march fifteenth. Last year was the day when everything changed. Its like we woke up and almost overnight that demand grew exponential demand from companies. Trying to keep running after sending everybody home. School setting up virtual classrooms then. The floodgates opened here at npr weeded stories about fitness classes. Moving to zoom. You're going to need a broom towel. Happy hours complete with drinking games. We figured out rules for virtual beer. Pong one of our producers watched her sister get married over zoom. You may now feel your ballot. Chests by april zoom meetings were attracting three hundred million participants a day thirty times the amount just a few months before zoom was an upstart and it was going up against products from giants like google and microsoft which are both npr supporters. So how did zoom beat these heavyweights real richness to simply way easier. Jason freed is ceo of base camp. A company that makes remote work software. He told me over his preferred app. Skype he's been working remotely for two decades. He says zoom made sending a meeting link as easy as sharing a youtube video open room. You get a you moral you. Send the url around people. That's it unlike. Other video meetings people you invite to zoom. don't have to log in or download. Software freed says that simplicity meant even though. The app was intended for companies. It was really easy for everyone else to use to but zoom was so popular and convenient. It had a downside. The fbi warning about zoom bombing intruders has started crashing zoom meetings because security was so lax townhall school classes. Aa meetings. were all targets. Dennis johnson knows all about this last march. He was defending his doctoral. Dissertation on zoom in front of family and friends with an unknown attacker scrawled racial slurs genitalia on the screen. A year later johnson still avoid zoom when he can every time. Somebody called me. Dr arteaga On so it just like a nasty taste in my mouth. Researchers uncovered other security and privacy flaws zoom told users meetings were fully encrypted when they weren't the company admitted shut down the accounts of activists in china after pressure from the government. Zoom went into damage control mode. It put everything except privacy insecurity on pause for three months and it reached settlements with federal and state regulators investigating the issues. Stucco burg's zoom. Cfo says the episode was a wakeup call. It was a humbling experience for all of us but we learned a lot through it and we have come out on the other side at a stronger a better company with a stronger and more secure platform now. After a year of daily life and major milestones conducted over zoom what happens when people get vaccinated and can go back to seeing each other face to face. Daniel ives as an analyst at wedbush securities there could be a roaring twenties type field. Whose covid where people are just gonna wanna get out and just almost a pent up demand but he says zoom has made such inroads into our lives in the past year. It's here to stay so they're still time to learn how to use the mute button

Assumptions about hurricane season face winds of change

"11. The planet is warming and it's having a notable impact on whether rising water temperatures are fueling a stronger and more active tropical storm season, and that is prompting scientists can to consider starting the Atlantic hurricane season two weeks earlier. Well, let's learn more now with Alison Wing. She's an assistant professor for Florida State University's Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science. She joins us on Skype. Thanks for being with us. We appreciate it. Good afternoon. Thanks for having me first to set this up. Describe the changes that we have been witnessing in terms of these earlier name tropical storms. We're starting to see the stuff earlier and earlier, aren't we? Yes. So in the last six hurricane seasons, all six of those years we have had storms named storms form in May before the official start of the hurricane season on June 1st and so It is something that seems to be happening more and more more frequently recently what our weather researchers considering besides an earlier hurricane season to accommodate these changes. One thing that the National Hurricane Center has already started. For this year. They're going to be issuing their tropical weather outlooks actually starting on May 15 now, which are issued every six hours during the season, just to provide overall overview of what's happening with weather in the tropics. And that would be something to help. You know, people be more aware of what's going on in the tropics, and you know if there's risks of tropical storms or hurricanes forming, But pushing the start to the actual official start to the season earlier is something that you know, could improve public awareness of the risk even more on because when we have these these storms Before hurricane season officially starts. The public isn't always necessarily as aware of the risk they may not have, you know, gotten their supplies and prepared their their homes yet for it, And so it's really a consideration and in order to recognize that we do have storms that happened before June 1st and you know what can we do to make the public As prepared as possible. And is there a way to try to impart to the public? How the storm should be rated like how strong we should expect? Storm's coming our way. It seems like sometimes there's confusion about that. Well, I think one thing to keep in mind is that the wind speed that we used to category categorize storms is category 12 and so on and so forth. That's only one aspect of the type of damage we can can receive from tropical storms and hurricanes. And so I think more and more. Forecasters are emphasizing the full range of impacts from winds be damaged, but also coastal flooding from storm surge inland flooding from rainfall and as well as the potential for tornadoes actually to be embedded inside hurricanes. And so the National Weather Service has some some products that emphasized those and I think that you know we going to see communication of this full range of impacts more and more, and you shouldn't focus solely on the

‘Don’t come’: Biden tells migrants to stay away from US-Mexico border

"To come to the southern border where there's been an influx of unaccompanied migrant kids arriving lately, White House Press secretary Jensen Hockey. Asked about claims that border agents are telling reporters that they're frustrated. They can't answer questions because they've been told not to talk to the media know there's Border Patrol agents quoted and a lot of your stories, and you speak too frequently, and that's something we support it. Obviously there's a long tradition of coordinating with Department of Homeland Security. But if we're if our farm policy is Keeping people quiet. We're not successful, and it is not our policy to prevent people from talking. NBC news correspondent Julia Ainsley asked by our own Dimitri sodas. If it looks like the administration is hiding something think it gives that impression. And, you know, hopefully after our reporting, and after this becomes a discussion topic, maybe we will see more access of at this point. I don't have evidence that there is something Being hidden. But certainly we don't know what we don't know. We want to be able to see where Children are sleeping. Are they able to get outdoor recreation time? Are they able to have a shower every couple days? I mean, just basic things. We know when they had overcrowding like this in 2019 Children complained that they couldn't even have enough space to lie down or get clean drinking water and without access. We don't know if that's the case now. And I have spoken to some experts and I know you given your job have spoken to many more who say that if you're in your home country and your life is being threatened, you're not really concerned with what President Biden is saying about Do come here or don't you just take off and you try to leave your country and get to a safe place? How does that factor into it? In other words, Whatever messaging the U. S has It doesn't seem to affect this flow of young people coming into the country right now. Well, you know, I think that's another great discussion. What we hear a lot is that their push and pull factors and you were definitely highlighting this push factors. We know that there have been natural disasters, famine, incredible violence by gangs in the Central American countries that have forced people to leave their homes. But under the Trump administration, they were by and large denied the right to come into the United States even to claim asylum. They were waiting in Mexico for months, sometimes years just To get their day in court to make their case for protection of the United States as the Biden administration ended that policy and then started to allow Children into the United States to claim asylum, the message gets out. And so it could be that if you're considering a trip, this might be the time you would do it. That seems to be a pull factor when we think of push and pull. Of course, people make decisions like this for a number of reasons, but another decision that we're seeing that I would like to highlight as well. Lawyers say that they have spoken to families. Where they may have an intact family waiting on the southern side of the border that has decided to send a child unaccompanied because that is their best chance of saving their child's life and getting them into the United States. Otherwise, if they came as a family, they would all be pushed back into Mexico or deported back into the very conditions that they fled from in the first place. Did find some interesting messages today from Secretary My orchestra's You testified before Congress and a similar message from what we've heard from the White House that they understand. There is a message of hope. The Biden administration wants to send a message of hope to people who are in dire circumstances and want to get the protections afforded to them by international and U. S law to come to the United States. But their message keeps being don't come now wait for us to get the resource is wait for us to get the bed capacity now it's not The time to come, But I think we're going to continue to watch these numbers, especially as they typically rise during the late spring to see whether or not that message of don't come now is actually sinking in. That's NBC's Julie Ainsley on Skype. Anything can happen in March

Supporting pupils with ADHD in the blended learning environment with Ellis Seddon

"Today i'm joined by ellison who's a student teacher on our secondary religious education program. Hi l. s. that thomas. Thanks for coming today. You've carried out a piece of literature based research for your lead partnership school who we can't name because of the terms of the ethic approval for the research project but this school and they gave you a topic to look into because of interest to them for their own kind of school development. So what was that topic that the school gave you said topic was an kind of split into three parts. They gave us a choice of either looking at vulnerable learners. And whatever that might be whether it's saw or more able and talented excetera ben. They said we could do a study on blended learning on how we teach in a blended learning environment or the third option was to combine those two together. So how do you help. Specific categories of vulnerable learners within a blended learning environment. And given the time that we're in to me that was the one of most interested. That's the one. I counted -able so vulnerable learners in the blended environment. And did you need to narrow that down tool anymore to make it manageable. Did you come from a subject tangled. Did you have to do anything with that topic. Once he picked option three from the hat yes exactly yeah so we had to narrow it much further because obviously vulnerable learners and such a white category and we a recommended that we could narrow that down to a a subject specific points of view a religious education point of view in my perspective in my work in my literature review after a loft inspiration. I actually didn't do that because going through the research i felt like it was applicable from what i knew to a wide range of topics so i didn't feel like bringing it down to a religious education spending was going to bring it was going to enhance it that much more but what i did do was never the butler winning side of things down to adhd specifically and. I did that in all honesty. Because i had an interest in learning more by. Adhd i'm really have a worked with many students with adhd. I didn't know too much about it. So i thought this was going to be a prime community within my sinement to try and understand. Adhd a little bit more given so pregnant and use it. Mapping it onto not blended learning environment saint tyne fascinating. Okay so you got your choice of adhd you justify your choice of looking beyond your subjects harry so then you were able to go out and search for literature and you had to pick six sources that will kind of help get a handle on that topic area so it might be a bit of a bit of a big question to ask but can you talk a street the six sources that you ended up with and so broad sense of what they were saying yes absolutely each so the one thing i should really mention i is that when i started this literature review trying to marry up trying to find resources which spoke about adhd within blended learning environment. There was next to nothing if not nothing at all and so it was a bit of panic. Could bit of a worry at the beginning. But i pushed through. I decided to do in. The end was focused on a selection of literature which focused on adhd specific late at some literature which focused on blended learning specifically. and then. i drew my own conclusions between those two. I'm using a variety of websites and sources as well to try in a match up in a meaningful way and i started by actually looking at the. Adhd you k charity website and there was a really interesting on on quite lamesa. Statistics on eighty nine percent of teachers teach or have taught students with adhd and yet sixty three percents of teachers feel that that training and of understanding adhd on supporting adhd students is a par inadequate So that was quite alarming statistics. So i started from that before. I took a deep dive into more literature. Adhd and blended learning specifically. That was loads of resources. When i looked at them separately. But i'll try and go through on now. My six down spitball. I'll just say best that. I looked into these articles mainly online because of the situation wherein they were mainly searches. Either through google laura our our learning platform at cardiff matt and i prioritized terms. Which article twits mentioned engagement mentioned. Adhd additional learning leads blended learning online learning hybrid learning excetera and the scope for narrowing down. Those obstacles was quite slim. Because as i said the amount of articles that looked at them together that what many of them so narrowing down was quite slim but i prioritized any which kinda did mention allen's on blended learning in one with was the best the easiest way to get more of a focus on my first article which i came across was by how graham relatively recent to the two thousand seventeen on it was titled learner engagement in a blended learning environment and it was a conceptual framework. And this what date. It had a huge skype through research. It had a thousand dollars. Coups chapters and other articles of engagement instruments have engagement. And what they really really. Interestingly came up with they spoke about the inconsistencies at the term engagement itself and then how that gets even more complicated when you transfer into online learning but they came up with indicators of engagements and that was what was really fascinating about this obstacle. We talk and teaching about. How can we. How can we facilitating gauge. How can we increase engagement. A little bit better argument was actually before we do any of that you need to know what the indicators aw. When do you know when your students are engaged. So that was what was really tickly interesting about this. And why recommended it to my league partnership school. They came up. With a whole framework within not they had six indicators of cognitive engagement and seven indicators emotional engagement which i thought were particular interests but within the cognitive engagement. One was based on attention. Which obviously i ate pricked my ears up because oh is robert. Because it was specific to eighty can be specific trade hd and what they aim to do is show you. What the indicates attention within within cognitive engagement by might look like and what you can do about it to understand it and enhance a little bit more now. Within this article on some of the things i thought were a little bit etched. Maybe for example under the intention indicator they said about how you might want to track rain whites or movement and it's not really sure that's going to be possibly the most affluent secondary schools around the country. But the undestanding is that you need to know when your students are engaged. Not indicated first before you can change your teaching style to enhance that facilitated and so it was my suggestion that maybe we could look at using. That's marks of teams with google cross. Rooms trying see when they are most engaged. See what the data. It's like really take a deep dive into that than students are engaged to take up over the second article most cattle again. It was a twenty seventeen obstacle a written. Interestingly was all about the motivations of adhd students so it was titled what motivates individuals they hd it was a qualitative analysis specifically for the adolescents. Point to the so what they did. They hypothesized that there are qualitative differences between motivation attitudes between students with adhd and their typically developing peers. And so they did this study which was largely in a more clinical environment. And that was one of my Concerns i suppose one of my hesitations about the article because they students were interviewed. Sorry the children were intimate in a psychology clinic. That was seven all those order. Which from a psychology background. So my argument was that if you brought in somebody from a different background to maybe the confidence in having no analysis response by us we may have a little bit more confident. That was different backgrounds. Connecticut election is still a valuable valuable. Be such an what they found was the rule. The motivation axe cheats. And this is interest. Day-today life it's not necessarily at school but additional attitudes between students with adhd and students non adhd rudely of very very similar. But there were two very distinct difference is which were really interesting. Adhd perspective the first one was the students with with adhd had a very specific aversion to the slow passing of time to time going slowly was just an absolute. No no for them. They just couldn't stand it on the second one was that students who didn't tough. Adhd also cased venue in having familiar and predictable tasks to toss it. They've done before they know how they works. They know what's expected of them. That value did not appear in students with

Editor-in-chief of the National Journal, Jeff Dufour, Discusses Manchin's Role in Senate Negotiations

"Let's go live now, with an update on Skype to Jeff Do. Four editor in chief of National Journal. Jeff in the plainest language possible. What did mansion get that caused him to change his mind and end this Well in the context of a $1.9 trillion bill. Uh, not much. These air presents pretty small provision that took nine hours. The final deal essentially is $300 per week of federal unemployment assistance through the end of August, the house had wanted 400. Said. It's bringing it down to 300. It was originally supposed to expire at the end of September. Now it's going to expire at the end of August. Essentially now one of mansions things was he wanted Tonto. To exempt the taxi. You want to accept the tax exemptions from this two households making over $150,000 a year so currently, if you get these jobless benefits, you can deduct tow up to 10,000 of that from from your taxes. He said. That shouldn't apply. If you make more than 100 $50,000 a year in your household, and it appears the Senate is going to agree to that now, the votes technically still open, even though they supposedly have a deal. I mean time wise. A lot was made out of Senator Ron Johnson last night, forcing the clerk to read the entire bill, which took hours. But this one vote on one Amendment has now taken longer than that did last night. And this is the first vote in what they billed as a vote A Rama quote unquote to come. So they're in for a lot of overtime in the Senate this weekend, the Senate record as you mentioned for longest vote has been broken again because all of this the previous record was from back in 2019. Is this something like the longest vote a sign of serious dysfunction on the hill? Or is it a sign of something else? I don't know The dysfunction is any greater than it has been in years past, which is still pretty significant, But it's combining that dysfunction with a 50 50 senate. I think I think we know a couple things now going forward Number one. This bill is probably going to go to the house like this weekend. Like you said, we're barring anything else on foreseen. They're gonna sense that the president for his signature, it's gonna give Biden his first big victory as president. But maybe more importantly, we know now that any significant legislation like this is going to be a real slaughter and a real challenge to pass vote Counting is critical. And there's all kinds of procedural hurdles that a senator, One senator can throw in the way in a 50 50 Senate now that applies to three bills at the House passed this past week that high up on their agenda. The voting rights package. The George Floyd policing reform and extending civil rights toe LGBT Q Americans, It's going to apply the unorganized labor bill and and gun legislation that they hope to pass this week. Those five just to name a few are all going to need 60 votes in the Senate. And if I were a betting man, I'd say they're not going to get it for most of them. President Biden, who you could almost jokingly say it's still a senator. He's you know, inextricably linked to the U. S. Senate, he called mansion directly. One wonders whether this deal could have been done without the president's efforts. And some people, I suppose, would be encouraged to see that he's getting involved. Others would say, Man, it's a bad sign that the president has to get directly involved like that. And I would also say this is probably not going to be the last conversation that by the mansion have during this Congress, because, uh, mansion is for people who count these things. Mansion is the most centrist member of the entire Senate. He is the swing vote. In the Democratic caucus, and he's the most important vote in the Senate right now, and he knows it. He's gonna exact every bit of power he can out of this toe, get what he wants for his state and for his And just for his for his views to make sure that whatever passes the Senate reflects his

Naomi Shihab Nye Shares Why Kindness Is The Deepest Thing Inside You

"Naomi. shehab nice. Childhood unfolded between ferguson missouri. Near where her mother grew up and her father's palestinian homeland. Our conversation in two thousand sixteen spoke to so much that he's even more alive in the world. Now i always start my interviews by inquiring about the religious or spiritual background of someone's tighted and i just wonder where you'd start reflecting on what that was in your life all. I felt very lucky as a child to have open minded parents. And i knew they were open minded because they were unlike any other parents. I met my friends parents I also knew that they didn't practice the religions of their upbringings. Either one of them so this fascinated me as even a little child. And i would ask a lot of questions. There was no sense of a taboo subject on. My father had not really had a difficult time telling his family that he didn't want to practice islam. He said i will respect it. But i don't want to practice it and they had accepted that my mother's family on the other hand had been more hard hearted about her rejection of their german lutheran missouri. Synod background but this was something. Both of my parents. Talk about with each other and with their children. You know that people are raised in all kinds of different ways. And if it doesn't feel a meaningful to you maybe you have to search more. You have to keep searching. And i was a religion major in college. Of course you work. Because of my appetite for this topic and i was fascinated to study more about zen buddhism which appealed to me very much from the beginning and it seems like hugh became a writer at a very young inch. You're like seven six. I was six. When i started writing my own poems and seven when i started sending them out and And just today Some students i was talking to a skype class in kuwait. How much. I love the modern world that we can do these things. I was with these students for two hours. And i feel like i'm going to think about them for the rest of my life but one young man asked me. How were you brave enough to do that. What gave you the confidence. he said. i've been trying to run a publication here at our university campus. And i can't get my friends to give me their writing. They're not brave enough. What gave you confidence. And i think just having you know that sense of voice while other people have done it. That's what we do if you know words if you compose wanna share them. Because they'll have a bigger life if you do that so you know. I certainly wasn't thinking about a career. Just thought of myself as having a practice you know if you have a practice of writing then you have a lot of pieces of paper on your desk and you can share the if you chose to. And it seemed more exciting or illuminating. Share them and see what happened next than just keep for myself. So i'm very interested in general in this question of you know what poetry works in us but i think even that question itself hasn't holds the implication that poetry is something separate something distinct but it seems that in your sensibility. You see it. As very organic i mean there's i think it was in in some of your writing for poems by children. He said i do think that all of us think in poems i do i do think that and i think that is very important enough feeling separate from text feeling sort of your thoughts as text or the world as it passes through you as a kind of text the story that you would be telling to yourself about the street even as you walk down or as you drive down as you look out the window the story you would be telling a. It always seemed very much to me as a child that i was living in a poem. The my life was the poem. In fact at this late date i have started putting that on the board of any room. I walk into. That has a board Came back from japan a month ago and every classroom. I would just write on the board. You are living in a poem. And then i would write other things just relating to whatever. We were doing that class. But i found the students very intrigued by discussing that you know. What do you mean. we're living in a poem or win all the time or just when someone talks about poetry and i'd say no when you think when you're in a very quiet place when you're remembering when you're savoring an image when you're allowing your mind calmly to leap from one thought to another. That's a poem. That's what a poem does and they liked that and grow in. Fact wrote me a note In yokohama on the day that i was leaving her school that has come to be like the most significant note. Any student has written me in years. She said well here. In japan we have a concept called you todi and it is spaciousness. It's a kind of living with spaciousness for example like it's leaving early enough to get somewhere so you know you're going to arrive early so when you get there you have time to look around. Or whether she gave all these different definitions of what you tori was to her but one of them was an after you read a poem just knowing you can hold it you could be in that space of the poem and it can hold you in its space and you don't have to explain it you don't have to paraphrase it. You just hold it and it allows you to see differently. And i just love that i mean. I think that's what i've been trying to say all these years.

Takeaways from Congress’ first Washington DC hearing on Capitol riot

"What went wrong looking into the security lapses. That happened before the Capitol riot last month with us to talk about the latest on these hearings on Capitol Hill is CNN, Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles. He joins us on Skype. So Ryan, these investigations are really just beginning. But have we learned anything so far? What the takeaways from day one. Yesterday's hearing was pretty explosive on many levels. Nick you heard from many of these officials from the various law enforcement agencies, some who have been forced out of their jobs. About what went wrong on that day. And what was perhaps the most shocking was that there was intelligence on the table that some of these agencies, the FBI and other agencies had taken in a lot of social media chatter from people that had said that they were specifically Coming to Washington with the goal of storming or causing chaos at the Capitol, and that information never made its way down to Capitol police sergeant in arms on other various law enforcement agencies, the Washington metro, much Politan Police department and they were never able to use that information to help prepare and as a result, they you know, the these leaders just were not prepared for the overwhelming crush of people that descended on the Capitol that day. On and you basically what lawmakers came to the conclusion that there needs to be a better flow of information to the folks that are gonna be making decisions about how to protect the capital in the future. There was some finger pointing that occurred yesterday, too, and that's getting a lot of attention. Yeah, That's right. You know, you had Capitol police saying something different What this Senate sergeant at arms, said Metropolitan Police seem to have a different perception is to have that information flow came down. And then one of the big things Joan that no one seemed to be able to agree on is when the National Guard was called in for reinforcement in and why it took so long for the National Guard to actually make it to the capital. To help protect the members of Congress and people that were at the Capitol. And then why the National Guard wasn't there even ahead of all of this s O. You know, this is just the beginning of this process. You know, this is one hearing, they said today or yesterday should say that there's gonna be another hearing that will involve the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. And then, of course, Speaker Pelosi is in the process of drafting legislation that would form a 9 11 style commission to look into all of this. It's gonna be a long time before you know all the information comes out as to what exactly went wrong in January Sex. Okay,

White House To Review Plan To Pull Troops Out Of Afghanistan

"When the U. S Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin meets with NATO defense ministers today and tomorrow they'll discuss the future of the 2500 American troops still serving in Afghanistan under a deal the Trump Administration signed with the Taliban. The U. S is supposed to withdraw those troops by May, 1st. Biden administration is now questioning whether that's still a good idea, given the ongoing violence. BBC chief International correspondent least to set joins US now from Kabul on Skype and lease The Times of London is reporting that the Afghan government wants US and NATO troops to stay for another two years. So if the body administration were to agree to that, how would they justify breaking this deal with the Taliban? Right now. Our understanding is that the Biden administration believes it needs more time and now Afghanistan is in a situation whereby depending on what figures used 50 to 70% of the district's of Afghanistan or other controlled or contested by the Taliban, and that one way or the other either through the negotiations were through the battlefield that the Taliban will return to power. The Taliban are threatening that if the U. S doesn't keep his deal, they're going to resume their attacks against the NATO forces. They want the U. S. To keep this side of the bargain. We know that President Biden never supported the troop surge into Afghanistan when he was vice president. We know he wants to get out. But the big urgent question now and it's a really, really hard question is that it's not that they we will get out. It is how we will get out. And what will happen when we do? Well, you're right. That is the crux of the problem for President Biden and for NATO, that if you pull out troops or when you pull out troops that terrorist groups will emerge again in Afghanistan, but from what you're telling me It sounds like the Taliban already carries quite a bit of influence in the country. So how much of a concern is it that these violent groups would take over the country? At some point when these troops are gone, Rob The very pessimistic assessments, which say that the Taliban had moved so close to many of the provincial capitals, which they've been prevented from taking in the past because of U. S air power because of U. S intelligence gathering because of US and other NATO support that once all of these Foreign troops are gone, that they will be able to overrun these provincial cities. And then, of course, Kabul is the biggest prize of all. There are people in the Afghan government who say this summer will be the worst fighting season as it's called that Afghanistan has seen for years, But they say they're confident that the Afghan security forces will be able to stand up to them. I think the reality is that the Taliban have strengthened their positions. They believe that their return to power one way or another is just a matter of time. It is hard to believe at this point that this year will mark the 20th anniversary of the 9 11 attacks, which, of course, sparked the U. S led invasion of Afghanistan now two decades ago. What has been accomplished in that time? Lisa's we consider pulling these troops out. It has been 20 years of some successes. I think we have to bear that in mind. Afghanistan is not the country it was in 2000 and one There is a vibrant press. There is a parliament there is an elected president. There is the most educated, most connected to generation in Afghan history. But you cannot also avoid the fact that year in year out the Taliban from their sanctuaries in neighboring Pakistan, and the resistance from other outside actors. Have the inch back district by district into power work and what we see Eat today in Afghanistan is a time where Afghans are living in fear of targeted killings that one by one Human rights activists, female judges, journalists that young, educated generation expected to play a role in the future. They're being picked off one by young one, and there's a brain drain. They're leaving because they see their lives. They're not safe here and they don't have a future in Afghanistan. I don't think I'm going to say that All hope is lost. But there is a feeling that this is what the Taliban say. Time is up. Now you had your chance, and now it's

Latest Melbourne hotel quarantine leak proves 'we're not learning'

"Happened in melbourne's melbourne's now in a five day down because of a hotel quarantine skype and we need your wisdom on it. Nominee basically. What we've seen is there was an escape from high to- quarantine that's a couple of times in the last few weeks and months all ever ustralia but unlike what happened in western australia and queensland they it's lead to more cases than just one or two zero so over the weekend we've seen another cases come out A few more exposure sites being recommended that people who were they're going get tested and isolate so the question is is five days going to be enough for victoria to bring these quarantine lake under control from reports. Seems clear that for a short period of time the contact tracing hesitate to use words Lost the plot but the behind it could be because it's a variant purdue could've conceivably happened with the wuhan virus as well is it's very infectious foreigners anyway and you've had a bit of escape and that's the problem that they're chasing a bit in melbourne and i think the the tracing commander in victoria does excellent work probably was prematurely the other day when he said they're on top of it you know i don't think they wear on top of that day and it's just got a beat out in the question is how much virus there is out there. There's positive sewage from various places including cobra. Where interestingly the was this private event where there's it seems to have been a bit of a spreading events how much spreading event we've remains to be seen and yet again we see with his forest that it's cluster-based that you get clusters so you're gonna cost situation in the holiday inn and then goes to other areas where you can get further sub clusters if you like developing the question is just to what extent you've got other clusters going and the extent to which they're tying them dina what's really good. News is a lot of victorians are coming forward for testing. The now seem to be on top of the contact tracing at least according to the press conference yesterday and they're the people who are becoming positive already in quarantine which is really good news artan about although it's relatively recent moved into quarantine see don't know backtracking the extent to which they were spreading the virus before they became positive. So my guess is the. I can't really guess because no inside information but what to watch for is just. How many new cases develop each states. If you remember from western australia queensland particularly when they went to short shot lockdowns zero cases each day's me say well. Why did they bother doing it here. There are not zero cases each day but now cases coming forward questions what happens today but if there are more cases each day particularly new venues than they are going to be a bit anxious about letting this go on wednesday so we'll just need to wait and see. unfortunately there's no crystal ball gazing. You mentioned just now this idea of a short short incubation period which is something that we've sort of his that it's language that's been used almost every time this being an outbreak so we heard it in south australia and in sydney last year as well. Is there any evidence that this time. They truly is a shorter incubation period. Looking at national evidence. No it's more that you the you're much more likely to spread it to other people are not the reproduction number is more like three point. Four and two point five with the wuhan version of the virus. The number of people that you're likely to infect if it was going on chick to live in faith but which is an artificial number because if you look at say the crossroads motel they are not there. I don't know guessing. But fifteen maybe fifteen people or something like that because it spreads and clusters the are not as average when you can get into super spanning the are not becomes really quite large and scary and with this new variant presumably even larger and scarier. And then you get people emerging probably with a lot of virus on board early on who helped the super spreading to a car and that makes it looks as the incubation period is shorter. It's just i think they've got a viral load. That develops faster rather than the the condition period being shorter luck with other times that we've seen a short shop look down as the company to fly over this idea of a five day quarantine. Is it an overreaction. I don't believe it is controlled. Every time i say it but the fact is you've got this new variant around. There's increasing information from britain that it's more virulent that there may be hospitalization and maybe even har- death rate with it still uncertain so i don't think it is and i think it's just a question of getting things under control and letting the contact tracers get on top of it really quickly and not really damaging and it's been damaging weekend for the restaurant trades in victoria with valentine's day we can also the lunar new year but it's an important thing to do and you if you go back to the middle of last year. If tornado had done this kind of thing probably for about two weeks just says it was spreading in the northwest corridor. They wouldn't almost certainly have had a lockdown lasting well over hundred

Biden treads carefully around Trump's combative trade policy

"Negotiations over. A corona virus relief package have been central to president biden's first weeks in office but he's also confronting a long list of foreign policy challenges global vaccine distribution trade and the task of repairing alliances that were frayed by former president. Donald trump in his first major foreign policy speech as president last week biden laid out his vision. America is back. Diplomacy is back at the center of our foreign policy. As i said to my inaugural address we will repair our alliances engaged with the world once again not to meet yesterday's challenges but today's and tomorrow's we want to get some reaction now to how biden's foreign policy is shaping up in europe and for that we're joined on skype by rosa balfour director of the europe center at the carnegie endowment for international peace. Welcome rosa hello. And so the president outlined a few immediate changes in his announcement last week including a nuclear arms treaty with russia and the decision to keep. Us troops in germany that former president trump had said would be coming back to the us. So how was his address. And this statement that america is back received in europe. Everything that has happened since by was elected has been well received in europe. There is a nerve well. Ming delight that things have changed in the white house and all of the decisions that were actually taken infest. Few days of the biden administration also welcome in europe however the still awesome europeans are worried about and i think one of them is that while the biden administration really wants to invest on allies and on diplomacy which is music to is of europeans. At the same time there is a bit of a concern that the priorities of the new administration will be very much domestically focused and that that will have implications for trade for climate change prioritize of technology so does raise some potentially troubling issues in the relationship between the us and europe together. We'll let me ask about one of those then rosa because One of the early executive actions that president biden took was signing his So-called american executive order so you mentioned trade as a potential issue. Does europe look at that as a form of protectionism. Well they're all suspicions that bassey's the deep meaning this. This decision actually is and europe would probably be more ambitious than the us in seeking broader trade deal. So i would be cautiously optimistic. That europeans and americans can go through the differences about they all suspicions in europe about the. Us's ultimate goal in terms of trade policy could any concerns about protectionism. Also extend to access to a corona iris vaccine. Because so far the supply has been kind of limited Could there be some tension between the us and europe about who is able to get their hands on these limited supplies. Yes to there's been a bit of a spat with the uk over procurement of crow virus. Vaccines and these could well continue. Having said this there is a general commitments that this coronavirus pandemic really needs to be addressed through global cooperation and european leaders. Have been underlining this and so i think ultimately this line will prevail pasta is modeled because of the pandemic and the desperation attached to wanting to this pandemic and get back onto a normal footing in our lives in the economy. Globally on that idea of getting back to sort of a normal footing. We heard germany's foreign minister. Say that he hopes for a reset of us european relations under the biden administration. I'm wondering rose how easily you think the president can do that. I mean is there any lingering concern in europe to the. Us is just not as reliable as it once was based on the last four years. Yes i'm afraid. The legacy of four years of trump is a pretty dramatic. He's caused a long shadow and they're all doubts. We've seen this before. George w bush was not loved at all in europe and then america bounced back with the bomber with biden. It might take a little longer. But i think all the ingredients all that at the end of the day even if europe and the us do not align on everything they don't align necessarily on their view off the chinese threat or the russian threats but are far closer to each other van out to anyone else. And i'm glad you brought up russia because that was one of the things that the president brought up in his speech last week's asked what he calls the quote determination of russia to damage and disrupt our democracy. He also sort of reaffirmed the united states commitment to nato calling it one of the country's closest friends how is biden's russia policy taking shape it. And what does that mean for. Nato in your view so let's just tremendous because europe has just had a bit of a diplomatic blunder of with russia on the high representative for foreign affairs visits moscow and the outcome visit was very negative but the high representative has also said. There's only so much i can do. If the member states continued to be divided and this is the big issue in europe with respect to russia in particular but also with respect to china's that the member states have quite simply not on the same page. I think biden if he works with his allies in europe and is in listening mode in doing so can help bring europeans closer together. And this affects you. Us corporation russia. But also a nato. On russia we know that nato has still considers russia as the greatest threat. And of course the us decision to wait before. Moving troops of germany is only welcome in germany. Trump's earlier decision to move. The mouse was viewed very negatively in germany. Rosa balfour directs the europe center at the carnegie endowment for international peace rosa. Thanks so much for your time. Thank

Biden administration to "re-engage" with U.N. Human Rights Council

"And I'm very Louise Kelly. The Biden administration is taking a new approach to the United Nations, so it wants to make sure it has a seat at the table at U. N agencies that the Trump administration left that includes the Human Rights Council in Geneva as NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. The Trump Administration denounced the Human Rights Council as a quote cess pool of political bias. The Biden administration says the 2018 decision to pull out left a vacuum often filled by authoritarian countries. The diplomat representing the U. S in Geneva now Marcus are announced today that the U. S. Is rejoining first as an observer. We know that this body has the potential to be an important forum for those fighting teary and injustice around the world. Being president of the table. We seek to ensure it can live up to that potential. There are many human rights crises that could be discussed there. A military coup in Myanmar a crackdown on protesters in Belarus and Russia. Then there's Iran. The repression is at an all time high for the past 15 16 years I have covered it that Tutti Guy Amy, who runs the New York based Center for Human Rights in Iran, he says the U. S absence from the council was felt back in 2019 when there was a deadly crackdown on protesters in Iran. That was something that the Human Rights Council if it had its center of gravity should have immediately moved to an emergency session for it. It did not happen. The Trump administration blasted Iran for the violence, but Gammy says it would have been more effective if it had done so with others on the Human Rights Council. Trump's former U. N. Ambassador Nikki Haley accuses the council of covering for dictators and being biased against Israel, she says it's sad to see the Biden administration give it legitimacy. Eileen Donahoe has a different perspective. She was Obama's ambassador there and said U S leadership made a difference. We got a special rapid tour focus specifically on Iran. There was a commission of inquiry on North Korea. We got multiple special sessions on Syria, which meant that the focus on Israel decreased dramatically without the U. S. There, she said Via Skype, China has upped its game. Avoiding scrutiny of its crackdown in Hong Kong and with the U. S. Calls a genocide against Muslim

Myanmar's ousted leader charged after military coup

"In Myanmar, the military is prosecuting the country's civilian leader, Aung Song Sushi. This development comes just two days after soldiers ousted the democratically elected government in a coup. Plunging me and mar into turmoil. The charges against on songs uchi are obscure, but she could be banned from holding political office ever again. The BBC's Jonathan head is with us now on Skype in Bangkok and Jonathan tell us more about this charge on songs who'd she accused of illegally importing walkie talkies? Well, I mean, she's been the head of state for the last five years. She has a very significant security detail. This isn't her home in the capital, Never doors where she lives. When she's in government. It's a very absurd charge. Everybody in Yemen will see this for what it is, which is a transparently cynical maneuver. By the military to disqualify her from office. This is their big challenge. You've got to remember they have bean Badly with this woman for more than 30 years, trying to neutralize her as a political opponent, and they failed every time every election on San Souci has contested and remember, she contested her first election way back in 1990. She won with a massive majority. And they need to find some way. If they're going to hold an election again, and they're promising people they will eventually of getting her out of the picture. Because her popularity remains undimmed inside Myanmar. The election, her party one last November was largely a result of her personal popularity. It would seem almost laughable, wouldn't it if it weren't so serious? These charges that he's facing that she could spend three years in prison if she's convicted. Have we heard from her? Do we know where she is at this point? Neither she nor the president who was her ally have been heard from, and I think there's a lot of worry about just how hard line this military hunter is going to be in the history of Myanmar has been very unhappy. The military has been both brutal, repressive. Very isolationist, a swell in the past. It's a different age. Now. Of course, you know, younger Burmese have known 10. Years of freedom on Dave got these days. Social media when I used to go into Myanmar 20 years ago. But it was firmly under military rule. There were no mobile phones at all. There were barely any phones. There was no Internet s O in a different age. It might be much harder for the military to impose on a very angry country. People who mostly voted for insensitivity on the military. Has any given itself one year so far of emergency rule to try and fix things so that its own party can do better in elections, and that was the grievance that started this group. They're saying that you know there must have been cheating because the military's party did disastrously badly in last November's election. Well, Jonathan, you say the military plans to do this for one year, but could that be a cover for something that ends up being much, much longer term? Nobody's gonna bet it's just one year when they remember what happened in 1990. The military held an election, then a much younger and sense. Uchi ran shops them by winning and they talked then about restoring democracy, and it took more than 20 years before Myanmar moved back to elected governments. Think don't think anybody could bear to consider that they might do that again, but it's a very different era. Now. I think the military for all they have a very xenophobic mindset that's often very hard for outsiders to fathom, are probably pragmatic enough to know they can't repeat what they did in the past. It's not clear whether they gotta clear game plan on us. You know whether they really believe they can hold an election in the year to some degree, you know they're making it up as they go along, You said the people of Myanmar are angry. Is there a possibility that they could apply any pressure to the military? Would that just be incredibly dangerous? I mean, what kind of power to the people of Myanmar have that's going to be interesting test. People in Yemen ovary well that in the past When people have come out on the streets, and it was only ever a moments of acute economic distress. They did it. The military basically shot them down in very large numbers. This military is brutal. Even by the standards of brutal militaries around the world. They will kill people and people know it. What was seen in the beginning is people using social media calling for campaigns on social media. We've seen doctors starting some kind of a boycott, not wanting to work with the military authorities. It's been a real shock this coup. I don't think many people saw it coming, and not many people believe that the military will be so brazen. After such a stunning election victory, for instance, Uchi said, people have got to work out what they'll do. But in the end, you know the military started the transition to democracy more than a decade ago because they recognize that the country was in a disastrous state. Under 50 years of military rule. Those same military guys have just launched this coup. They've got to figure out a way back to some kind off. Normal elected government is just not clear. How they could do that, while retaining their own kind of monopoly on power, which they seem to want to do. The BBC's Jonathan head in Bangkok, Jonathan, Thank you, thank you.

Collecting and Processing Metrics for Monitoring Use Cases With Chronosphere

"My co founder martin in terms of the challenges that are inherent to monitoring. I know that there are a lot of usage patterns that are unique to metrics and log data. That aren't necessarily represented in other types of data use cases. I'm wondering if you can just talk about some of the complexities that arise. Because of the ways that monitoring information is used in the patterns around that and how the advent of cloud native environments and workflows complicates things further. I think that basically when you talk about like storing data and the amount of information that you store a lot of people tend to think perhaps i-it-it's massive scale. Perhaps you're like exploring. The data collected by lighter on his self driving car. Is matt cement wall. The use cases can be lodged in individual deployments not at the scale of how much an individual computer in your laptop from mid information about it in a very high frequency nature. Your mobile phone is running hundreds of processes and sending tons of danger to the internet every second and it tends to be actually like outside of these use cases that we thinking are on the verge of light coaching lodge volumes of data for us to collect analyze while that is true suffering itself is probably the leading us case for by constructing information about how it's running and then the volume that is at is ten feet one of the highest volumes of information recording that we're seeing in the real world at least gently to learn greens Defeat level of scale and granularity. Which is kind of can be collected that and it looked at massive and started as you mentioned. How do we even hanis. That is is often difficult. There's seventy intangible things about software a you kind of have to limit your skype to know. What kind of things do i want to actually pull out of this. Infinite data that could be generated about a piece of software running on a device somewhere and yet today we extract three main kinds of data which is log like later. Sorry something that you as navigation developer rush to capture about in the bench. Your program did look later metrics which is more like a signal that could be kind of omitted from your program in a more type. Saif way i would say really gonna choose a type of metric and then you've got to choose the different specific dimensions that you want to be able to pivot on that metric. It's kind of free fall in the logs. But then by the very nature of you having to think about what that metric is to expose it can be more meaningful to you as someone when kind of like looking at metro dead dander because you already put in the thought to describe what you're measuring with metrics and then tracing is very interesting kind of compound view of both that event data. That's kinda happening through your system but then tied back to an actual individual components that performing it and then being able to visualize the events for a given kind of request or a given kind of flow of a user using your system has crosses the different component boundaries in the cloud native while we think of much of the time boundaries are bits of code executing different micra services. Oh back end services. And that's kind of where the component is thought to be captured at the granularity of an event being executed to a partner by Tracing also used obviously on a mobile device on a move all device to look at you know. I called plex pace of ios or javer sufferers. Running on your android or iphone device as well because you have many code libraries. Obviously that nicole into from your application and then obviously the operating system is doing things to tracing as kind of a way of like looking at a coal diagram across competitive boundaries and as compared to boundaries

"Sarah's a scientist herself she does very cool squid stuff by the way and she felt like there. Was this disconnect between scientists and the public. So she thought won't okay. Let's bring them together. But I notice that there wasn't a super easy way for scientists to get in touch with the public sort of in a way that Easy for them to fit into their schedules. But Hey it's the twenty first century. That's what technology is for and so. I wanted to sort of have this streamlined. Way To get scientists talking with non-scientists. Just give people the opportunity To meet a scientist now the setups pretty straightforward your teacher. And you want to teach your kids about squids scroll through and find squid scientists and request him. Don't have a specific topic in mind. That's cool to just pick something more general like biologist fill out the form and boom. You got yourself a scientist so when you first started scape. Scientists part of your motivation was to clear up some misconceptions that people might have about scientists like who they are and what they do and what they're like. So what did you guys want people to know about scientists? I really wanted to show people the diversity of scientists. I think we really get this kind of over-simplified view of who scientists are how we behave what we're interested in outside of science in TV and movies. I mean you get this pretty much. Almost all white guys all straight people. All white guys are socially awkward with varying levels of social skill and so we know that scientists are just as varied as any other group of people. And so. It's not necessarily that. I WANNA say scientists aren't like this it's like scientists aren't only this. Scientists are all of these different ways of being and so in our program. We also ask our teachers if half of their students are from an underrepresented group in stem so that we can match them up with a scientist from that group because we really want to show everybody that there's a place for everyone in science. Yeah let's talk about that a little bit because I think we know now like scientifically we have data that suggests that when kids see people that look like them doing science they can imagine growing up to be scientists too. So you really build that idea into the scientists that you pair with the classrooms. Yeah absolutely we WANNA give as many students as possible a window into science that they can relate to. Yeah Yeah and speaking of relating. I WANNA play clip for you of microbiologist Ruth Eisenberg. She's reading a question submitted in live chat so the question is is there any advice that I would give to a young student right now that might show interest in becoming a scientists from a small town? Okay perfect so I actually come from a pretty small town where not? A lot of people went to college in general so if you have an interest in science say keep passion alive you can get involved in science activities like presentations or anything that the community can participate in a lot of colleges and I really liked that because it sounds like you know the scientists herself would have loved to have that program when she was a kid. Is that something that you hear from the scientists? Who Do these calls? That's part of why they participated in this. Yeah totally I hear that all the time. Yeah so a lot of scientists that are now adults working in science. Never really saw people like them when they were up and so I think that's one of the reasons. Scientists are so enthusiastic about participating in this program because they wish they had something like it when they were young. Yeah no I mean I do. Don't you I mean that's probably by? You made it right totally. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean I think I remember the first time I met a lady scientists who specifically the thing that I wanted to do and that that was a transformative moment. I think yeah I hadn't even met a white woman scientists until I was a sophomore in even in my department studying Marine Science and we had zero female professors at all so I mean as a white woman so imagine how much worse it is for. Somebody other folks. It's just like yeah anything that we can do to show people How welcome they can be science the better. What other kinds of feedback do you get from scientists from teachers from kids? We've got a lot of feedback. I didn't necessarily expect to get for. Example are scientists will say that when they talk to people who have never really thought about their area of science before that they'll have these questions that are like. Oh my God. Why have I not gone way? You kind of get totally cool. Things that are like we'll blow the mind off somebody who's been studying this effort twenty years. Well Can I. Can we talk about that? Because that's a point that when when I think when people think about scientists doing outreach they really think that the benefit is only for the person that they're trying to reach out to but in reality you get these people who haven't been thinking the same way that all the other academics that you've been surrounded our thinking and you can get like really good ideas about your own science from having those conversations. Yeah absolutely a person who hasn't been taught to think in the exact rigid way that your field thanks. Having that kind of naive can be totally amazing. It's like it's definitely not. It's a two way street. And that's one of the great reasons to have conversations with people and not just deliver Information Athem. A lot of really awesome stuff can come from those conversations. Yeah so what has surprised you the most since launching this project so many things surprised me that it's kind of hard to pin it down. I think once I participate and they get like a bunch of fourth graders so like electrically enthusiastic about what they're hearing about that really remind scientists. How COOL THEIR JOBS? Because when you're working on a grant and you're reviewing other people's papers and you're trying to get your own work published it can kind of disillusion you on how totally cool our jobs are. And then when you have like a fourth grader. Just like beside herself shaking about hearing about your squid or your termites. Wherever you're studying it can be a real like just awesome reminder and get you excited to go back to the lab the next day. That's been amazing so I've kind of a big question for you. What does it tell you that people have this much interest in talking to you? Know Real live scientists over video chat. I think people are just really thirsty for authenticity today. I mean I think you get so many things kind of filtered through various forms of media. I guess and they're just they just want something real. I feel like a lot of people just want to see partially like behind the curtain of how things are really being done and just want something directly from the source and so I think that that's why our program has been so super successful because we get people direct access to the science right as we're learning that information.

"All of these different microsoft services can now be spun up as a tab in an app and teams a lot of them. M._r. tied directly to a group. So what do you do from that management of those other services and how do you govern all of those things and that doesn't even begin to get into private channels which we don't know how they work yet but that is something else that you're going to want to keep a look at or keep an eye i on as teams rolls out over the next or has that rolls out and how do you govern permissions and private channels and teams and all these apps that are going to be associated. She added with all of those. There's that side of it and not to scare anybody too much but what is teams potentially going to replace right. We're kind of framing this. I think a little bit as a conversation of what if you've got both of these so let's go back to that h._r. Thing earlier what if h._r. Doesn't live where it lives today and it actually comes all the way over to teams. They took his there. Is that potential to that. The duality isn't there but potentially you have to retire and migrate a process or updated along the way so there's just so many many moving parts right and there's no great roadmap for any of this because everybody is just a little bit different so it can sound a little bit like a just a discussion. Have oh my gosh. There's so much to do well. There might be for you. There could be less for me. There could be more for this other person really. We don't know until you get in there and start looking right because there are companies that i've spun up today that just start right off on teams. They've never used skype for business. Dave thought about that teams plan from right off the bat. The next two years going to be pretty easy for them. Other clients like literally just started using skype for business month or two ago. They're going to have a little bit longer her little bit awards plan in kent lake. You said that whole that shift in workers something and something that you're gonna wanna think about. I've done a couple projects now. <hes> and i just finished up a project where i really started thinking about this. More in terms of microsoft is starting to frame teams as that central landing spot or that single place you go to do all of your work and i think we talked about this. Maybe a little a bit on one episode. I may have made some comment about teams becoming the new browser for all your office three sixty five workloads but microsoft more and more is selling teams.

"I'm pretty sure you can create teams your mobile device to so now you can have your users going just crazy with creating teams and share point sites from everywhere and anywhere whenever they want to so that probably leads into the next one that you kinda hinted at hinted at is that governance of maybe you don't don't need to go turn it on day one but you're going to want to have something in place when you make that switch which means you probably do want to start working on it today today working on it soon because especially if depending on who you are listening to this in what area of your company or in if you're in the share appoint side and you've been really closely governing share point but there's a whole nother team that does skype for business. That's planning that move from skype for business two teams. You're probably gonna. I don't wanna go start working with them by the mistake become really good friends with them because you're going to want to have some input into how teams governed because that's going to affect your share point governance and the same time if your side if you're on the team side and you're working teams governance. You're really going to have to work well with that. Share point the team to understand their governance and that interaction between everybody even exchange because exchange starts coming into this as well as going to have to become a lot tighter. I do know companies as well where there's a lot of segmentation between those departments start working on the opening up those channels of communication planning working together now because due to all those different workloads. That team spins up. You don't want to start working on. How do we govern this sprawl like you said how do we governor share point sites. What about all those shared exchange mailboxes that are going to start getting spun up as teams and groups get created. There's a lot of things to think about there just across those functional teams within your i._t. Department that that communication and that that working together really may have to improve over the next two years. It's just a little bit right just a touch oh man so much to kind of break down within those so doobie you want to do things lake naming conventions. Maybe want to enforce like naming policies for your teams and your groups. You know if you haven't started to get into those workloads. Hopefully you have so now. Potentially you have to go out and get new licensing when you think about maybe governance carry forward kind of thing you lay said he apps so what are the applications and services that you're going to want to allow users users to consume out of teams they may or may not be different than the things that you allow them to consume out of share point today because maybe you go by by like official third party tools.
