Predictions of Email Marketing 2021
"What do we think is really going to be important in the coming year because even a marketing does change the priorities. The world's changes of course. What do you. What do you mean what's one of your big things that you're thinking. Twenty twenty one. The focus on what i think sending emails is probably going to be a really big thing. If we start sending emails rather than just thinking about us going to hell. No so i think one of the really big things that we talk about all of the time is engagement is is working on engagement of your email lists we all collectively trying to get away from this idea of emailing bombarding emails until they buy unsubscribe. Just build a massive mess and beat them over the head with emails. So that you. If you've got this one hundred thousand people three percent of them open your email. She might go. What still quite a lot of people. That's three thousand people might not everyday but actions. You know what that's really expense. It's hard to manage. It's not doing your marketing and good to instead. We need to focus on actually having really small list. The actively works in fact. I'm going to go as far as to say this. I recently had an email marketing platform. That was painful with rooms twenty thousand subscribers and one of my businesses and i was paying and the reason being it was like a negative price so i signed a ten years ago and so i had the place in ten years ago. Not the place today. And as a result of that. I was like clinging onto it can also be used that one day actually recently i just got rid of it and i said you know i'm not interested. I mean a different platform. Because i don't want to have a list of twenty thousand people necessarily anymore because you can do a lot more damage with a lot smaller list and be more profitable if you're willing to manage the engagement of those people into the woods. If you're willing to chop off the whole roster people who are not paying attention anymore and that's probably not gonna buy anything anymore. You can make the same amount of money. It's much smaller segment of your list. Actually if you ignore the vanity metrics of how big your walter of a-listers and instead focus on how much money you actually take thus a much better place to be right and we're talking about law you pay the bills. You can't grow a business you concrete freedom or achieve any of your goals with a big old list of of email subscribers i. It doesn't matter how big a list you wielding it. It really doesn't matter it's all. About what value are you getting from that list as a business right. Or if you're if you're if you're a non nonprofit for example who have a couple of of those guys listening. It's about the the number of people who who's having an impact on and if you're not getting any engagement not having an impact on them. Let's be honest right if people are not engaging and what would mean here is people are not actually opening in reading clicking replying to forwarding. Actually get involved in your emails just seeing your name and delete in a worse. It's not even open it. Don't even bother deleting it and your inbox engaging not literally serves. Nobody in terms of them themselves the person who subscribed they are in volley from your emails. Because they're not reading them. Say knock involved from you. Secondly you're not able to get any value from because you're not only meals that you can't make sales office to them and third and this is the most terrifying bought of at all is all of the people who do receive in from you that ability to receive from you is negatively impacted by the people who are not opening your emails you damaging reputation with the email platforms so some of the people who do want to receive m e mails from you. Who do see value in you who you can get volley from on seeing emails. So no one's even so. I think we need to have a massive focus on engagement. Now will comes down to making sure that every single email you send you ask directly for some kind of engagement. Whether it's click a link reply this thing go check this out forwarded whatever. It's going to be just to make sure that you're getting engage with the museum. So this is definitely as the as the spam world tightens up even further because everything on the internet. Don't you know so renita. Remember that all these algorithms gonna get smarter. So engagement is going to be massive for me. I think the next thing is going to be about giving people a reason to actually open your emails. What i mean by that is if all you email and look people are guilty of this. I know we can look back at my my older my previous self and see that. I used to only email people when i had a new offer. Hey here's a new. Or i was leading up to an offer giving some value in advance of framing the offer. Lots of people only email. Hey here's the next thing. I've got the next part service. The next thing the problem with that is if i receive an email if you receive an email right now from somebody and you know the only thing they email you about is other products the only reason to ever open the email is to see what they've got on sale right now or to see if if a discount on the thing you'd be careful but if you're not in zone now if you're not in a place while you're looking to buy something from the category of stuff that person sells then you've got no reason to all to open that person's emails whereas to actually give people a reason to open their emails which is not there might be a discount code or they might be a thing they want to buy. If it's actually there is value in the email themselves that they can they can enjoy that volume in get value fraum. Then there's a reason to open that email regardless of whether anita have my credit card honda not right absolutely. I think i really wanted to allow businesses idea that at the minute we think of emails is being a bit like a lot of people know a lot of people think of email is being a bit like knowing somebody comes around the doors and puts a catalog three blocks. You only look up by. If you're interested in the idea of all the i might wanna buy some new took boxes or something like a new dust or i might wanna see what gadget economic my kitchen and never used for the rest of us like the rest of the time just threw away. Just don't use it. don't even look at it emails. Become thing the to even even the big supermarkets have realized this is the case in the uk. If you go to marks and spencers right at overhaul of christmas look christmas right. They had all of that stuff inside on the lead up to christmas of. Here's the beautiful turkey you can get. And he has all this stuff but what they switched on the fact that people won't read them if there's no value enough it's a free magazine is a free calog. So what do they do. They put in beautiful turkey recipes. That had -ality the do at tesco that do it everywhere. They give you great recipes. Here's some great christmas soups and all this stuff. So there's a reason pick catalog up. Because the reason we still got two or three of them lying around in the kitchen even now because we know that some great recipes nuts and nothing so that's value in the off they are catalogs which are selling products directly. So we've gone gauge. When we think value is the second one interesting in that example you just gave just about that. O obviously the articles and the stuff that you're getting recipes is stuff that you can do with the stock you're gonna go and buy from that shop so like it's not like defeating the purpose it's not like here's the perfect ten list to go camping next week when you doing anything related accompanying it's mitchely a lotta stuff that is valuable in its own right. But it's congress when he makes sense that you're gonna be able to get results from the study you can then go and blocks from that shop and by the way kennedy. I have to say about jerry makes a lot more sense now. Marks and spencer.

UK says EU trade talks 'over' but bloc sees room for a deal
"Boris Johnson has dramatically told Britain to prepare for the new deal brexit after a bust up with Brussels on trade talks the minister put the country on notice that it's e you departure at the end of the transition period. On December, thirty first could be without a trade deal with the European bloc that could leave businesses facing tariffs and quotas to trade with European bloc and transport delays could see some food shortages. Deputy political editor Nicholas says spoke to the Evening Standard's Bonnie Christian. Nick, what happened today and we're we're expecting it. This was a bit of a surprise. This announcement by Boyce Johnson appear that the EU and the government were coming to an arrangement to continue talks next week on a trade deal. But there seems to be a difference in stance taken by the EU leaders and the European Commission. The EU leaders probably Egged on by Emmanuel macron. Stiffen the stance or the European bloc and particularly over the row over fishing. This led to a response for Mr Johnson threatening to walk away from the talks. Why has this decision been made completely out of the blue? Boys. Johnson had set a deadline of October, the fifteenth for a breakthrough. In, the negotiations in order for them to continue this has not happened basically. Going to be some woods agreed for them to continue of them pull the whole house of cards down now. One with the British demands was an intensification of talks. This had been proposed and flashed around Brussels. But when the summit conclusions came out, there was no mention of that. The government in Britain responded by saying that we were going to start prepare now for a no deal. So does this main? A deal is completely off the table? No. It doesn't mean that could mean that. But what happened Lychee now after Bush Johnson has made a statement is that the European Commission President Sheila Underlay? tweeted that a team from Brussels would be heading to London to intensify the talks. This was a key British demand. So it looks like there's been a political spat between the leaders at political level. But now that the Are, trying to keep the show on the road if we are to leave without a deal what are the big knock on effects of that, we could see here in the UK economically, they could potentially be catastrophic. You'll certainly talking about businesses, facing tariffs and also quotas. That could also be food shortages. Some shorter particular fresh food shortages in the UK I for weeks even before the threat of a no deal ruptured lunchtime the boss of TESCO's was saying that they could be some future tages. If there literally is no deal. Then obviously, the likelihood of those would increase dramatically shortly optimistic Johnson spoke that the pound fell against the euro, which is a sign of concerns. The next step is really the me t next week to see whether they eat negotiators and the okay Shakespeare's could make a break food. The meeting may not happen, but it looks like it will happen and is imposed. Sides interest to strike a deal both will play hard ball and often agreements are really only reach five minutes to midnight when both parties are staring into the abyss and the they know that unless a deal now things can get very very messy. These talks have been stalled for months. Now with a the side, not really bunching at all is there any sense of what the outcome could be? Is Too hard to tell given. The economic damage in Odio could calls and Boris Johnson will be fully aware of this and Michael is you would expect a deal to be reached but e you leaders they got the stronger hand and so we'll trying really go for the best possible for them. and. That will put pressure and strain on the British government because they really don't want to make many more concessions especially with so many hard line brexit is in the Tory party.
Seattle Genetics takes a new identity
"Here's Jim Tesco, the region's biggest biotechnology company, has a new name Seattle Genetics, which is actually in bottle announced via regulatory filing the other day that it has changed its name to see Jen. A biotech company, which has about 600 employees says it decided on the name change because it has begun to expand its presence beyond the Pacific Northwest.
Tesla stock rally accelerates
"Tessa says on the move this morning at pairing gains up to the company Equity Distribution Agreement to sell up to five billion dollars of sheds. Joins us with more on that Phil Not enough to put it into negative territory though this morning pre market. No. Because I think when you look at this Agreem- in, what did Tesla has essentially done is it has formed an agreement with a series of bank and I haven't counted how many exactly I think there are seven or eight where from time to time at Tesla's direction, they will sell test shares to raise up to potentially overtime five billion dollars. Now, we don't know exactly what the schedule is going to be how frequently these sexless stock sales will take place the money is going to. Be, used according to the eight K. that they announced this with to sure up the balance sheet and provide a liquidity for the company which raises the question. HOW IS TESLA'S LIQUIDITY? It ended the second quarter with about five billion dollars in liquidity. But remember they've got some strong capital commitments that are coming. They're still building the gigafactory outside of Berlin they've made the commitment to build a gigafactory outside of Austin Texas they're constantly investing in the GIGAFACTORY which is expanding and adding more battery production outside of Reno Nevada. So I think when you look at this TESCO investors will look at this and they'll say look. We don't know exactly what they're going to be using this money for in the future but we do realize that they're going to have these big capital commitments and so now they have said with this series of banks look from time to time we will ask you to take advantage of the market and sell our shares at our direction and Phil we was saying. It's a sign of. The progress of this company that they can re raise five billion. So easily, it's a percent or so just just over a percentage of the market cap today the shares on even flinching and eighteen months ago, two years ago. This would have been nylon impossible correct and remember the reaction that we've seen over the last couple of years whenever Tesla has raised capital, it's been more muted with each capital raise there was. A big reaction. I remember to a capital rate what are they? Two or three years ago and the big question is oh. My goodness what are they doing? Is this an indication that these guys will never be able to make money for just always going to be spending money we have seen less and less of a reaction from the market with each subsequent capital raise or an indication that they will be selling shares. And the share price gains again, not just to mention the eighteen percent since August eleventh announcement of the stocks yesterday up double digit percents off the first of the stock split Phillips thanks much
CALM, The Campaign Against Living Miserably
"Simon welcomes mentally ill thanks very much for joining me. So, can we start off just with the basics tell us about com what exactly does it do? com is the campaign against living miserably, which is an excellent name and adds up to com. Ca Yellen we are we're suicide prevention, organization So our I guess chosen Lens on the world is suicide. an and that's to us as a barometer of how well society is doing and. How it needs to be fixed. In two thousand, eighteen, nineteen, the office of National Statistics numbers showed the suicide in the UK by eleven, percents, and that's off to a steady plateauing of numbers. So we can see there's something. Happening across society in the UK The needs to be addressed that now that of course, he's pretty coded pre lockdown pre economic impact or those kinds of things. So the way way tackle suicide. Is. Three one as we campaign for Societal and personal change. So we with big. Brands. The everybody will know like. TV and Dave and spotify and talk shop top man TESCO and. They just the list goes on and on positive messages people to enable them to change behaviors, which they preach may be damaging to seek help to help people around them epitomised thing by a recent partnership that we launched with Carling. Calling of the L. Become Caring and. Working there to help people. Coffee a macaw themselves also campaigning that we do is to societal change result. Of thing, we did projects four in two, thousand, eighteen, two years ago. With it in this morning we. Were responsible for the appointment of the first of A. Mischief assault prevention. So that's campaigning The second leg on stole if you like is cooled collective, which is where we bring people together will though virtually now around shed passion points. Running and And football and those kind of things when we allow people to join groups through the complexes the final on. The most.

You might be feeling fine worried about somebody else without help Yugoslavia all no matter what com is there to help. You have a happy life and to try to Change Society for the better. I'm what about you? Personally, when did you get involved in? Why did you want to get involved with this charity in particular? Up I've never worked for charity or been involved in mental health tool I. Wilson Television in the business and then lastly, in appetizing don't judge me but I I was literally run up by the Chairman James skulks to say why you why senior life will advising advertising agencies on stuff coming through something worthwhile for four months and of site. That's three and a half years in is fantastic. It's calm. I. Think he's attractive to so many people because we don't behave like a charity. Now, that is any way to denigrate chows as a child. She's fantastic. Brilliant things Supplement stuff that arguably government should be doing but did have have real profound pup calm is a charity but we behave and communicates in ways which may be more like a a modern brand. So we communicate through music and comedy and football, and running and cycling, and or those kind of things which we tap into popular culture So we've seen huge growth in the last three years most notably in the use of helpline, which is which is more than double. So it's a brilliant privileged to be able to run the thing.
Gary Bernhardt - TypeScript and Testing
"Thing that you said about the test, we verifying the behavior system is totally true if you number one have well, if you have perfect coverage to the system. And that doesn't mean just line wise coverage because executing every line isn't sufficient. It doesn't mean even path coverage path coverage means like let's say you have a function with two with a conditional with two sides and an els, and then after that on related to the second conditional with two sides, you have four paths to that function because you can take either side of the first conditional on either side of the second. So. Even covering all the paths isn't sufficient because the data might vary in weird ways that 'cause you might, for example, you never thought to test for when some arrays empty and you're indexing until you're getting an undefined out your test never tested that. So the thing about. Let's throw away the integer versus strength and just think about like you have a function that takes a supposedly takes a string. and. You didn't think about what happens if it's undefined. Well, maybe you never pass undefined that function, but maybe you pass something that was indexed out of an array to a, and if that array was emptier, didn't contain that index, you're going to get an undefined and this is like at least in dynamic languages. This is one of the most common and annoying sources of bugs is whatever kind of knowles your language has and they show up. Yeah Yeah. Exactly. And these languages tend to have very lax with with somewhat an exception of Python. They have very lax handling of knowles. So like indexing ray with an unexpected index gives you all in undefined, her nail or whatever. It's called same thing with Hashes objects. So. One of the big benefits of a static type system. As you can say, this function takes a string and under no conditions will allow you to pass an undefined into their. except. Took mentioned, the type script was designed under severe constraints. Actually, type script does have this problem because of the type of indexing array is the type of the array. It is not union with undefined. So. This is not the greatest example, but there are lots of sort of other situations like this objects are a better example. Cause type stripped will prevent you from. Accessing a property that doesn't exist on an object and getting an unexpected undefined, and then passing that down into a function that never expected the undefined, all of that kind of weird. Stuff. This kind of weird bugs that can only occur due to run time. Data. A lot of them go away, not all of them and you know the language determines how many if you're programming Idris like really, you get pretty close to all them going away if you programming in type script like. It probably gets you eighty percent of the way towards preventing those kinds of things. But. This stuff comes up constantly with. A. So that was all. That's all of that was supposing perfect test coverage. You still have these problems that are based on run time data. They're not based on the structure of the code you wrote, would that mean that you don't actually have perfect test coverage though like that is the implication. So. I. Don't want to write I, don't want to one. Hundred Percent Path Coverage, I? Don't even want achieve one hundred percent line coverage. So an execute programs code base. The ratio of test code to should've written the actual number down, but it's something like maybe four to one production code test code is. That is that feels like a lot more production code to TESCO than what I remember seeing like the destroyer software screen casts and stuff. Like Ruby and rails stuff. Yeah, and it's a lot. It's a lot more production to test than in the destroy all software code base as well because in Ruby and like I have to. Constantly. Protect myself from from mistakes. and. With type script and play. I can strategically test. Things at just the right place. So like EXCO program has this core bit of code that handles year kind of progression through a course and the lessons and so on. That's really critical and quite complex code. All of that is like just paranoid testing around because if any of that ever goes wrong, it's going to get baked into the database and it's you know it's GonNa be there forever. But for example, our reactor components. Strictly speaking we have zero tests around the entire react. And that's there are a few points that are actually tested, but they're kind of factored out like reducer, kind of stuff like the actual. Component testing. But just like there's some areas of logic that I'd extract, it emerged test for because it was easier to write the code if I had tests while I was writing it sorta thing. Yep, exactly. and that's not to say that the front is never tested because we have some Cyprus tests drive a browser so. Are, tests actually step through every single lesson in the system just to make sure that nothing blows up, but that's more of a just a giant smoke test. So. And it requires no incremental work when I write new content or new components, just kind of works for free. So. By, having type script in place, not having to worry about all the wiring of components I can focus on. Very, complex tight fine grain tests for the core logic. Of the system and I can have this nice high level test runs through and make sure nothing is totally broken, but I don't have to write a whole lot of just really boring like this component. When it this, it renders you know with this class or whatever I. Don't do any of that stuff and. I. Think it's worked really well, I have no regrets about about switching type script for that purpose because the overhead is quite small when programming but the test over the saved as massive, I mean, we're talking about. I wrote a blog post with numbers in it, but I think it was something like the system would be two point, five times as many lines of code. If I had done standard, what was it two to one test to code ratio?
"tesco" Discussed on WJR 760
"Totally Now people are buying into it in record numbers, and frankly, you don't have much of a choice. So how does the Tesco see consumer perceptions? And the expectations of the electrification affecting the automotive industry in the United States. Tesco Technologies has a clear conviction that the future of mobility will be electrified. In fact, as you said, it's already happening both globally and in the U. S. We see a mentor market in the U. S. For a healthy mix of standard combustion engines, hybrids and full electric vehicles. And since hybrids and fully these are still at a pretty low level globally Oh, and in the US, That means there will be a lot of growth from electrification. With the Tesco doing quite well and approaching the spinoff, I presume waiting a little bit for an improvement in market conditions. I mean, would that be a fair guess? Yeah, That's exactly right, Paul. We're waiting for the market externally to improved. This isn't the best environment in order to do a spinoff. So, as I said earlier, our motivations very high, but unfortunately, we have to wait a little bit well, we'll see what the market does. But meanwhile, you're not standing still, as we speak here with Sandy's Trajkovski, the CEO of North America form a Tesco you have about I think last count about 50 or so locations and 40,000 plus employees globally. Yeah, That's right. You know, it's a really unique time for us for sitting off as a kind of start up if you will, But we're doing that from such a solid base of Ah, large organization like you just mentioned on with that that we're pretty excited with what our future has in store. Tell me a little bit about your background if you would, Sandy. Sure, I'm born and raised in southeast Michigan. And let's see if you're born in this area. You have kind of two things running through your veins. For me. That was automotive and something I think we have in common with is the Michigan go blue engineer head background, but some many years ago have really transitioned. More of a business leader from being an engineer. And that's a big deal. How big of a change? Is it going from the kind of mind set and thinking and process as an engineer to now, what obviously is a bit broader. In terms of you work with engineers, and you work with other people and bringing that altogether. I gotta believe. Obviously, it's been kind of exciting for you. Absolutely as an engineer. Engineers are problem solvers. If you really break it down, and so instead of engineering products these days or even processes for manufacturing organizations. Now I'm helping to organize our overall organization and people and making sure that all are really important team members can fulfill their fullest potential. So It's really just another engineering problem, but it's got a wider impact. Tesco Technology's part.

Ruminating on Food
"We start with an interview. Anthony Davis now guest today on the sustainable futures report you'll the CEO of big bomb which is a not for profit organization which is being trading for some twenty years. As I understand that your role is to encourage healthy eating and sustainable agriculture correct. So how do you do that? Well we when I first set up. I'm a fifth generation farmer and set up the side. Because we were growing onions in Norfolk at them. Every time we went to sell them we could get about one hundred pounds a tonne and two days later. We'd see the onions on the TESCO shelved for about eight hundred pounds a tonne Food supply chain has is giving as Dale and consumes about Dale because If anyone turned out femme Australians we'd be happy to sell them off the process signet so the big bomb is all about reconnecting. People buy that through came from at helping to sell directing consumers by right and we're hoping that process that people would find us about three day on eight health late because they buy fresh local food. You've been doing quantitative what with schools leave. That's right we say that To change people to cooking and buying food we really need to act on the influences and we say the main influences as children because if you can get children eighteen lane that parents wanting healthy fade away. It'll encourage parents to eat better food as well. So what you're doing with the children in the schools well we ran a project in Leicester where we went in every week to help the kid. Some grow seats In plant pulse and that we built some raise bets implanted fruit trees and these children lentil about growing food and when it was ready they were really enthused to taste it and Actually Cook with it and we had this added incentives that they could then take. Will they'd grown to the local shop and the local shop and sell it for them and says cool crop for the shop and it was really brilliant way of introducing children about food and growing only plans to roll it out further into other schools across the country. We absolutely love to because We Got Twenty six thousand schools in this country and we found out that fourteen thousand of them will go to veg. Patch and a m Or Garden as would actually quite easy the mold getting both but unfortunately it's not on the curriculum and at the end of the year with the School Esta. We went to the teacher. Teaching nights as the VEGGIE PATCH. We managed to get a lot of them. Academic Subjects Fetch. So are you going to do it? And she said On anything what's on the creation and unfortunately waving running petition for a long time about getting school food growing grant and cookie on the curriculum and The the government with allstate only measure scope foments on a level massive English and. That's a big mistake. So we all lobbying and we'd love to do more but we're restricted by government mind. That's a dead end for the moment. Unfortunately them while there is a new food and farming policy coming out at the moment and being worked on and we hope that with the evidence week with another number of other organizations that it will change and the government will say the opportunity. Because if you can if you can change able to eat healthy food I think at the moment.

British Girl Finds Christmas Card Message From Shanghai Prisoner
"A six year old girl in south London was writing Christmas cards to the kids in her class when she found a bizarre message written inside one of the cards it said in part we are our foreign prisoners forced to work against our will. Please help us. The card was made in China and the message appeared to be written by a factory worker. NPR's Frank Langfitt is watching all of this from London. He frank the high well. So what do we know about what happened here. Well the the girl names Florence Whitaker. My believe was opening up to to write to a friend and Inside the note also said it was it was written I think in caps it said please. He's notify Human Rights Organization. And please contact. Peter Humphry now Peter Humphrey lives in In Greater London he's a he was a corporate fraud investigator. Who served serve time in this exact prison ching-kuo Shanghai suburb now? Humphry was eventually released in two thousand fifteen and the family reached out to Humphry Who wrote about in the Sunday Times of Humphries to be a Reuters reporter The cord was sold by the British supermarket. Chain TESCO TESCO has said they're suspending any orders on on these cards And are investigating so in the meantime the Chinese Foreign Ministry says this is a hoax. They say it's just not true. Are they offering any evidence. Install not yet that I've seen but the Chinese company that made the cards is emphatic. That it never contracted with this prison. Outside of Shanghai and saying the charge of using forced labor is completely fabricated. Now the the Foreign Ministry. Actually this is very curious. Noel actually blames Humphry. Personally don't says that that he's suggests that he's behind all of this. Now there's a there's a past year. The Chinese government said Humphry was imprisoned for illegally collecting citizens information. I've talked to Humphrey Humphry on the phone. He says that Charles Bogus. It was never heard in court and he actually says he recognizes the handwriting of the card as a prisoner that he he knew when he was in the prison and now I asked him about the foreign ministry's claim that he's behind this and Humphry says this is just a typical kind of response that the government uses to any accusations about human rights abuses. This is the kind of opposite you get you get a lie. You get a complete lie in response. The one thing about this message is is a little bit different. Maybe it's very. He's very personal attack on me accusing Fabricating Story But you know. I didn't invent a little girl in south London than her father who have never known in my life and I didn't invent the message handed to me So it's absolutely ridiculous. Okay that was. Peter Humphry Frank. You were based in Shanghai for five years. Did you ever come across stories like this. Yeah it's actually not all that uncommon. These sorts of messages tend to surface in Chinese products. Every few years There back in two thousand twelve. There's a woman in Oregon who discovered an account of torture in Halloween decorations. That were made in China Back in two thousand fourteen. I interviewed on American sociology. Professor is named Stuart Foster. He'd served time for theft and I talked him after he got out From prison from jail actually and he said he'd been forced to assemble Christmas. slights in a jail in Guangdong Province. His quota was three thousand lights. I think a day and he said the prisoners who didn't meet quotas were beaten. This is what he told me. There was one one particular leader during the month of July that was particularly sadistic braided. A few of the Christmas light cores together and e would come up behind inmates that were working slow and slash them across the back. Now now foster told me that he remembered one inmate being whipped and this this inmate was mentally slow foster thought he could actually see the welts warm on his his back after he was struck. And after I did that story no L. I I've been I've received messages on facebook and elsewhere from other former inmates saying that they've made Christmas ornaments and things like that in Chinese prisons. All sounds outrageous. What did human rights groups say about? What's going on and on there? They say that this is kind of standard operating procedure. We're in a lot of prisons. In China. Prison business is prison. Manufacturing and and sort of providing labor is big business. You can find advertisements online's online for this and Human Rights Watch resume estimates. There could need millions working at this. I was talking to your Chiro Wong. She's a research with human rights. Watch and this is how she put according adding to Chinese law that prisoners as long as you have ability to labor. You'll have to labor so you know. Forced Labor is given imprisoned in China in the couple of seconds we have left their labor. Lots in China. Right there are but what a Yoyo says.

"So that's really the advice. I give to people it's not an easy. It's it's easier said than done, but you have to start somewhere, and the more that people start seeing these stories being told the more people will want to volunteer them when they realize that this is actually a safe space. Right. And that in those stories are are treasured and welcomed, it's amazing. They are coming out of the woodwork. One of the things that adamant I wanted to talk to you about is because you've been in the UK for three and a half years. If you have observed any storytelling differences. Between US brands in brands in in Britain or a mea large. Absolutely, sure. You know, we put a ton of examples from the UK in our book, I think selfishly when you're living somewhere, of course, you're kind of immersed in the local media culture. And you know, what I would say after living in the UK for three and a half years. You know, the Brits definitely have very distinct kind of sense of humor and ways of communicating if you ever want to get a little bit of a fun insight into British culture, there's a Twitter account called so very British problems. And it is a very self deprecating. Look at maybe some of the some things you might not necessarily realize about British culture. People maybe are a bit shyer in some ways and have different kind of self deprecating or a bit kind of a kind of a sharp and fund sense of humor. So you just have to kind of understand some of those quirks. And that's where maybe you see some of that playfulness coming through in in the campaign. So I think I mentioned it with the Oreo one they really focused on time. Event in the UK you actually with that clips you actually couldn't see that in in the US. But there was one that we highlighted in the book that came from Tesco and j I think you're gonna love this example, I think I actually covered this for convincing convert as well. So Tesco has the most brilliant customer service strategy. They're very used to responding to very cheeky and funny customer complaints on their Facebook page and so much. So they've actually created this culture where now customers actually want to be a bit cheeky or and how they how they talk about their customer service complaints and one that I absolutely loved was. There was this man that found a worm in his cucumber, and he actually named it William and decided to have this entire kind of worm funeral for kind of William the worm. And Tesco is touched by that. They actually sent him a sympathy card with the palm on it. And then another example from Tesco as well as a woman. I mean, how great is that though like when you actually start telling little store brands could look at. Customer service issues as a negative we want immediately take this off line. We don't want to shine a spotlight on this. We just kind of want to solve the issue and move on to the next. And and I think what was so brilliant about that is if you actually looked at the engagement of every single back and forth between the customer and Tesco about this.
