Fake 5G-coronavirus conspiracy theory leads to real abuse and damage

"It's easy enough to laugh off fake conspiracy theories that seemingly five g. with the spread of the coronavirus. But there are some serious real world consequences I'm Roger Chang, and this is your daily charge. With me is Katie Collins or senior European correspondent. Thanks for joining me Katie thank you for having me. I'm very excited to be here a while we're excited to have you. So. You've got a great story that really puts a human face on the end result of these conspiracy theories. But before we get into it, let's recap things for our listeners. What exactly is being said about five G. Well, a variety things really. I mean it's all started off from the fact that that being conspiracy theories around network technology for as long as it's existed almost, and but at the beginning of this year, we saw a new spate conspiracy theories appearing online that basically said that five G. was causing or it was at linked to the spread of corona virus. So either some people have been saying that it's directly responsible for transmitting the virus, which is scientifically impossible. An other people have been suggesting that fifty. The radiation through five eleventh, your immune system makes you more likely to catch grin virus and basic these things. CATEGORICALLY NOT TRUE Yeah and I've actually I've watched a couple of videos they've been shared to me by a couple of acquaintances on facebook asking if if these are legit and. After watching them like I can see why can easily be fooled because they sound legitimate they've got. Cut a British sounding voice. Speaking with a bit of authority usually someone who says I used to work for Vodafone rates to work for ee at let me tell you these copies noted stage and like if you if you don't know enough about five G. Technology, you'll you'll miss out little inaccuracies that are thrown out there and so I can see why why the folks are buying into this but. To your point. Conspiracy theories around networking and seller technology been around for a long time. Two G. Three. G.. There's constantly a debate over whether or not the radiation from these. Technology is actually harmful and and that's still kind of. Up in the air right within really. Conclusively proved lower the other but. This is the first time that people are acting out on these conspiracy theories this thinking. So why is that why? Why are people taking action now? Yeah it's really interesting because as he say in this is kind of we started to I'm friends and family sharing these conspiracy set before us to be kind of. Just be popular among the kind of each group on the Internet. And I think that the reason that this is really become if not mainstream than. More broadly popular is the fact that. I spoke to professor at the University of Oxford he's been researching. The spread of conspiracy theories throughout the coronavirus outbreak and he said that you know it's really created the FIA at that people feeding generally. everything's unstable right. Now, the fact that people have come that trust in people in charges is really in doubt move at the hospital before is created this kind of perfect conditions full. Theories to really spread because you just that. That doubt really that we have in everything and is is making perhaps more open to to also of new ideas that we hadn't considered before for sure I mean we've seen this in politics obviously the the pizza gate conspiracy theory ended up resulting in someone actually taking action in shooting up a pizza parlor in DC so. Clearly, people are acting more more of these. You've spoken to some of the folks who have endured the harassment to these telecom workers. Tell me that. Yes. So We've seen across the we've seen a variety of and. In which people being acting out from people, attacking masts to people approaching telecom work in the streets, and they've just been going about their daily jobs. Most of the time trying to fix people's broadbands. Chance, to resolve. Problems with telephone lines, the kind of usual day today stuff, and they have people perching them and being mainly verbally abusive to them some some of them have been. Victims of more serious assaults as well, but the people I've spoken to largely. Fussy they went and they didn't have anything to do with five G. Anyway a misconception and you know they had members of the public approaching them and swearing it them Telling them that kids Wigan to get sick because they heads. Because they were working on five G.. Being quite threatening in a threatening to. Interfere with the equipment they were installing. Ole Maintaining In some cases to kind of get make a quick getaway, an other cases they were. Mania cable I think the one common theme that I that I discovered when I spoke to these people who is the fact that they all really in a in the past just felt totally safe doing their jobs that quite to talking to members of the public and very happy to do. So that's just kind of being out in about consternation meeting New People. That's just. That work and now they feel this real trepidation an they feel very wary about meeting people what might happen to them when they're just out during the jobs.

Chinese Leaders Split Over Releasing Blacklist of U.S. Companies

"Were exclusively reporting on a new development in the ongoing battle between Washington and Beijing over technology. China. Has Been Working on a blacklist that could punish American tech companies, but there's disagreement at the highest levels of China's leadership over whether they should issue a blacklist before or after the US election, our correspondent Leyla way has been reporting on this issue and joins us now Ling looking forward to this conversation. So welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you mark. So the one thing that has struck me is the fact that China has been very up front about this notion of a blacklist. How did it come about and what's the goal behind it sir? You're right China announced as intention to create. Unreliable entity list backing made last year but they have really kept to the whole process secretive. So what happened backing May to sell? Tin Soon, after Washington released entity list, basically restricting Weiwei, big Chinese, telecom giant, restricted hallways excess to US components and technology. So basically China's move was to match the trump administration's stepped up sanctions and crack down on Chinese companies. Especially, some of the best known technology companies so is part of the whole tit for tat strategy. The Chinese government has been using everything's the trade war broke out and explain what China may be thinking about as it considers the consequences of a blacklist. So this. Is This entity realize basically is part of China's ways to hit back at the US but they have to be very careful in terms of hall heart they push back right because the leadership really is also a dilemma on one hand they want to satisfy the urge to do something to hit back at the. US. On the other hand there's still wary of completely destroying the relationship which would hurt the Chinese leadership to at home politically and would also heard China's economy as well. So where do things stand currently because in your reporting, you said that leaders are hesitant to pull the trigger to this day. We still do not know which American firm the for for infirm is on the list because the Chinese leadership has intentionally kept it a secret of process you know on one hand you know just by announcing this list, they managed to keep foreign companies especially American firms on the actions on the other hand. Dad Really reflects the internal debate that currently is going on within the Chinese government. You have one faction officials who think, Oh, we should release the names as soon as we can. To really protect our rights and our stove and t just stand up to the American hack mom, and then you have another group of Fitch shows senior officials who are arguing we should try not to provoke trump any stretching the further you know we should be really cautious because you know the stakes very high. If you know there's a very high risks dead, the trump administration would step up sanctions again, potentially targeting even more Chinese firms that would really hurt China's economy main industries significantly. Politically speaking, these are tough times between the US and China with this list. Is there a risk of making things perhaps even worse? Definitely there's a risk that the mere disclosure of the existence of this list would provoke the trump who stretching further because as you know the sentiment toward China Washington this days it's it's quite active as evidenced by the cascade of actions targeting Chinese companies or Chinese officials but China right now doesn't appear in any way that they would compromise in any way instead they basically hit back at. Every punch that has been thrown by the US government so even The idea that they are creating a list be seeing as. Provocation in the eyes of some US officials. So definitely, there is a big risk that this move this moved to simply disclose that the distance of the list is going to provoke Washington even more and lead to further escalation of tensions. I think this discussion is going to continue for quite some time the journals

China announces regulations for 'unreliable entity' list

"China says it's instituting new regulations that could bet blacklist foreign firms that Beijing says unfairly treat Chinese companies or pose a threat to China's national security. NPR's Emily Fang reports. The announcements come a day before the U. S blocks to of China's biggest mobile APS, TIC TAC, and which China has not yet announced which companies will be labeled what it calls unreliable entities. Firms that threatened the development of Chinese companies trying to announce it would compile a list of unreliable and titties right after the US put Chinese telecom company hallway on a trade blacklist this spring. In May, Chinese state media suggested that American firms including Apple, Qualcomm, and Cisco, would be considered first for the list. And while China's future unreliable Zen titty list is not explicitly aimed towards countering American companies or individuals These regulations come the day before the U. S. Will take Chinese social media app, sweet chat and tick talk out of American app

TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations

TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations

"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back. Everyone wants to become a better leader this groundbreaking new book how to lead shows you how David M Rubenstein is one of the visionary founders of the Carlisle Group and host of the David Rubenstein Show where he speaks to leaders from every walk of life about who they are, how they define success and what it means to lead. Jeff bezos Richard Branson Warren Buffett Bill Gates Ruth Bader Ginsburg Phil Knight Oprah all of them and more are featured in how to lead this essential leadership playbook illustrates the principles and guiding philosophies of the world's greatest game changers discover the expert secrets to being. Effective innovative leaders. Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S

What Are The Costs Of Climate Change?

"Faces catastrophic flooding after yet another hurricane. This one Sally Lumber to shore early this morning. Meanwhile, record setting fires have been burning in the west for weeks. These climate fuel disasters are not only dangerous, they're costly. Billions of dollars have been lost. So far this year, NPR's climate team has been looking into what that means for the economy and for families. Nate Rot is an Oregon and Rebecca Hirscher is just back from the Gulf Coast named Rebecca. Hello to both of you. Thanks and Becky. Let's put this first question to you. We know that climate change makes a year like this one more likely to occur. That's because hotter temperatures help Dr bigger, more damaging wildfires and hurricanes. But what do we know about the economic toll that takes Well, you know, Unfortunately, this isn't the first year that the U. S. Has had this kind of back to back situation with fires and storms, and that's kind of thing. As you said the global warming helps fuel and the federal government. It actually tracks this data. So we have some idea of how expensive these things are. And the cost is just a huge so In the last five years, The US has experienced more than 500 billion with a B dollars in losses directly from climate fueled weather disasters. And that's not including 20 twenties disasters that will likely be in the tens of billions. $500 billion in the last five years. Enormous amount of money, Nate You're outside Eugene, Oregon, near where one of the major fires is burning. Give us some sense of what those fires mean for the local economy there. Well, they've just been devastating. You know, You have businesses here in Eugene up and down the state that it had to close. Just because of the smoke on. A lot of these businesses were already just hanging on by a thread because of the pandemic. Then you've got the direct damages from the fires. Lost homes, lost timber glass buildings, lost infrastructure. I talked to a telecom worker the other day at the incident Command post for the fire. I'm near and he had just gotten back from being in the burnt area. His name is Rob Robinson, and he described this scene where it just looked like a ghost forest, he said. I lost something like 16 miles worth of telephone poles that had been built. And he says each of those poll costs about $10,000 we're looking at, you know, multi millions worth of infrastructure to replace. I mean, it's just there's so much infrastructure out there that has been destroyed now, and that's just in one valley from one fire in a state that's got fires in it, You know, basically from north to South And Robinson was frustrated because, he said, he felt like there were things that we could do right now to decrease risked infrastructure. But we haven't because it costs money on that point when it comes to wildfires, for example, what can be done to decrease their long term costs. So it's going to take a big change in the status quo. You know? Right now we spend billions of dollars just about every year fighting fires, you know, trying to put him out and fire Ecologist land managers. Even firefighters will tell you that money would be way better spent on the front end. Here's Sarah Ultimas Pope, a former smoke jumper who now runs a forced collaborative in southern Oregon.

Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border late last month. Give us a sense about the hurricane cost. Well, you know, Hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like Sally. And that's really bad news, because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the Earth gets hotter. This year has been really bad. There have already been 10 climate driven disasters that cost more than a billion dollars each. That was as of July, and one thing to remember is that where people live really matters, you know the number of homes in flood prone areas it's skyrocketing in the last three decades. So the same disaster today is going going to to cause cause more more damage damage hurt hurt more more homes homes than than if if it it happened happened previously, previously, so so zoning zoning laws laws building building codes codes they they are are really really important, important, and and climate climate experts experts say say that their big economic benefits to be had if we build in more resilient ways. Rebecca and Nate. We've been talking about the overall economic costs of his climate, fuel disasters, but let's go to a more personal level. How does this affect families? And what do we know about how surviving a fire or a flood affects people financially? Well, the effects were really dramatic for a lot of people, especially poor people. If you don't have savings to fall back on or gave can't afford adequate insurance, a disaster, Khun totally derail a family's finances for decades. People whose home is their only source of wealth. For example, they're more likely to end up renting. Even years later, bankruptcy is more likely. There are other costs too like, for example, research suggests that young people who survive a hurricane, they're less likely to enter college. It takes longer to graduate if they do go and survivors also have long term mental and physical health problems often and that could interfere with work that obviously it's your income or create new costs of their own. These air, extreme weather disasters who have been focusing on But what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately?

What Are The Costs Of Climate Change?

"The Gulf coast faces catastrophic flooding after yet another hurricane this when Sally London to shore. Early this morning meanwhile, record setting fires have been burning in the West for weeks. These climate fueled disasters are not only dangerous. They're costly billions of dollars have been lost so far. This year NPR's climate team has been looking into what that means for the economy and for families nate. Rot is an Oregon and Rebecca Hersher is just back from the Gulf Coast Natan Rebecca. Hello to both of you hither. And Becky, let's put this first question to you. We know that climate change makes a year like this one more likely to occur. That's because hotter temperatures helped drive bigger more damaging wildfires and hurricanes. But what do we know about the economic toll that takes? Well, you know unfortunately, this isn't the first year that the US has had this kind of back to back situation with fires and storms, and that's kind of thing as you said, global warming helps fuel and the federal government and actually tracks the status. So we have some idea of how expensive. These things are and the cost is just huge. So in the last five years, the US has experienced more than five hundred billion with a B., dollars in losses directly from climate fueled weather disasters, and that's not including twenty twenty s disasters that will likely be in the tens of billions five, hundred, billion dollars in the last five years enormous amount of money nate outside Eugene Oregon near one of the major fires burning give us some sense of what those fires mean for the local economy there. Well, they've just been devastating businesses here in Eugene. Up. and down the state that it had to close just because of the smoke and a lot of these businesses were already just hanging on by a thread because of the pandemic then you've got the direct damages from the fires lost homes timber buildings lost infrastructure I talked to a telecom worker the other day at the incident command post with a firearm near, and he had just gotten back from being in the burnt area His name is Rob Robertson and he described the scene where like a ghost forest he said they lost something. Like sixty miles worth at telephone poles, it had been built and he says each of those poll costs about ten thousand dollars we're looking at you know multimillions worth of infrastructure to replace I. Mean it's just there's so much infrastructure out there that that's been destroyed now, and that's just in one valley from one fire in a state that's got fires in. You know basically from north to south and Robinson was frustrated because he said, he felt like there were things that we could do right now decrease risked infrastructure, but we haven't because it costs money. On that point when it comes to wildfires, for example, what can be done to decrease their long-term costs. So it's going to take a big change in the status quo right now, we spend billions of dollars just about every year fighting fires, you know trying to put him out and fire colleges, land managers even firefighters will tell you that money would be way better spent on the front end. Here's Sara ultimate pope, a former smoke jumper who now runs a force collaborative in southern Oregon we do have a lot of work that we need to do on our forest to get them back to. A more healthy state where they're going to be resilient in the face of climate change and resilient to disturbance, and to do that, we're going to have to invest in them. So she says, we're going to need more prescribed fire thinning more management of these places, and that is going to cost a lot of money. You know billions of dollars. So that's wildfires. Then there's hurricanes and Rebecca as we mentioned, you just got back from the Gulf Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border. Late last month gives sense about the hurricane cost. Well. You know hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like sally and that's really bad news because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the earth gets hotter this year has been really bad. There have already been ten climate driven disasters that cost more than a billion dollars each that was as of July. One thing to remember is that where people live really matters you know the number of homes in flood prone areas, it's skyrocketed in las three decades. So the seam disaster today is going to cause more damage hurt more homes than if it had happened previously. So zoning laws building codes, they are really important and climbing experts say that there are economic benefits to be had if we build in more resilient ways. Rebecca innate. We've been talking about the overall economic costs of climate fueled disasters, but let's go to a more personal level. How does this affect families and what do we know about how surviving a fire or flood affects people financially Well. The effects are really dramatic for a lot of people especially poor people if you don't have savings to fall back on or gave can't afford adequate insurance, a disaster can totally derail a family's finances for decades people whose home is their only source of wealth. For example, they're more likely to end up renting even years later, bankruptcy is more likely there. are other costs to like for example, research suggests that young people who survive a hurricane, they're less likely to enter college. It takes longer to graduate if they do go and survivors also have long term mental and physical health problems often, and that can interfere with work that obviously hits income or create new costs of their own. These are extreme weather disasters. We've been focusing on, but what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately noticeable climate impacts like the gradual rise of temperatures. So yeah, I mean rising temperatures and heat waves hurt agriculture health certainly electrical bills. You know you have warmer waters affecting fisheries and then there's just the down the road impacts ecological decline you know are in extinction crisis. Right. Now that climate change is only going to make worse and we depend on ecosystems for everything from clean water and air or two places to go where we can just escape from it all and I don't really know how you put a price tag on something like that. That's NPR's climate team nate rot and Rebecca. Hersher. Thank you both of you. So. Much. To be here.

I adore Ola at Frost and Sullivan says prepaid phone plans make up almost 20% of the U. S market.

China Launches Initiative to Set Global Data-Security Rules

"Has launched a global data security initiative to counter the US's so-called Clean Network Initiative. China is urging countries to oppose what it calls mass surveillance against other states in other words as the US has been trying to get countries to sign up to its system of non Chinese tech and telecoms and other technology. China is now rolling out its own system to counter this quoting the. Wall Street Journal. China is launching its own initiative to set global standards on data security countering US efforts to persuade like-minded countries to ring fence their networks from Chinese technology announcing the initiative on Tuesday at a Beijing Seminar on Global Digital Governance Chinese. Foreign Minister Wang Ye cited growing risk data security and what he characterized as efforts to politicize security issues and smear rival countries on technology matters in an apparent swipe at Washington to counter such challenges. Quote it is. Important to develop a set of international rules on data security that reflect the will and respect the interests of all countries. Mr. Wang. Said according to a transcript from his speech published by China's Foreign Ministry under its new global initiative on data security. China would call on all countries to handle data security in a quote comprehensive objective and evidence based manner and maintain an open secure and stable supply chain for information and communications technology and services according to. A text released by the Chinese Foreign Ministry. It would also urge governments to respect other country's sovereignty in how they handle data in line with Beijing's vision of cyber sovereignty whereby countries exercise full control over their own corners of the Internet the initiative doesn't mention the US, or it's clean network program. Mr Wang nonetheless made it clear in his announcement that the move comes in response to the White House effort quote bent on unilateral acts a certain country. Keeps making groundless accusations against others in the name of clean network and use security. A pretext prey on enterprises of other countries who have a competitive edge Mr Wang said according to the transcript quotes such blatant acts of bullying must be opposed and rejected and quote Chinese diplomats have approached a number of foreign governments to seek their support for Beijing's initiative people briefed on the matter said, it wasn't clear how much interest is garnered so far and quote.

Pompeo: Chinese threat may be worse than a 'Cold War 2.0'

"US Secretary of state might compare has bill named middle of Oprah this week you warning that the threat from China good welby worse than that posed by the Soviet Union at the height of the cold. War Mr Pompeo's visits is taking in the Czech Republic Austria, Poland, and Slovenia. This is what he said yesterday. The contrast between free and unfree society has never been clear. Free nations must work together to confront authoritarian threats. Chief among those threats is the Chinese Communist Party and its drive to control people and information at our economies. When a Balkans correspondent guided Loni has been following his journey. Welcome back to the program guy good to have you with us. I wipe out the with Slovenia with no disrespect obviously to the nation itself. I think far enough I mean it's only two million people live here. So it's not exactly huge, but it is a NATO member and there is a family connection of course, Emma and Mr. Pompeo made that point in his opening remarks saying that he brought greetings for Melania trump who is noticeably absent from her homeland. She was born in San Nitsa as Melania canals and she doesn't come back here very often. But Mr Pompey's said she was very envious about him visiting nurse Levin in particular Lake bled where he was doing his news conference but. The rather factors as well. So Slovenia is at at the moment and this is I wouldn't say was out of character, but it's just a matter of where how the political winds blowing here at the moment at the moment in the Prime Minister's office you've got somebody who thinks Mr trump is rather smashing fallow where prime, minister. Yannis Yansha uses twitter almost as enthusiastically as MR trump and spends quite a lot of that time. Enthusiastically, retweeting Mr Trump's tweets. So if you're going to have a friendly audience in Europe at the moment of your representative of the trump administration then Slovenia's an office place to stop off so more than simply passing on greetings from floaters and enjoying a slap up lunch at Lake bled we've just heard there a clip from Secretary of State Pompeo. Making China the real focus of his visit. He really did, and you only speak for about three or four minutes yesterday bend and I think at least two and a half of those minutes were spent really having a good old dig on against China before that. He was speaking about well, he was actually signing a declaration with the Foreign Minister of Slovenia about five G. Security, and this is all part of pushing what the trump administration calls. They're clean network program, and this is an attack on Chinese. Telecom. Companies Chinese tech companies hallway in particular Zeti threatening for the Balkan they've both been very high profile targets of the trump administration and leave you signing up to this five of this clean network program. You'll basically making a commitment, you'll knocking to use any untrustworthy. Vendors in your five G. Systems and the United States is saying it wouldn't have any of these vendors anywhere near any of its embassies went allowed anywhere near any of this State Department. Systems. A lot of come countries, of course are not signing up to this, but Slovenia has and it's got its five G. Network installed by. As of last month, take that way well has replied China Chinese commentators of wounded central and eastern Europe shouldn't be fooled. What would describes Mike pompeo embracing an entirely entirely cold war mindset it is. It is a dangerous thing. Isn't it when you start going into the likes of the Czech, Republic and Poland and Slovenia, and START TALKING ABOUT IDEOLOGICAL THREATS Yes I'm you know he really has gone the full evil empire on? Am You when you talk about Cold War rhetoric either way that he's he's talking really as I mean, as you heard in the clip there, it sounds like something from the nineteen eighties a talks again chief among these threats as the. Chinese. Communist. Party. It's drive to control people and. Information and our economies, and it's it's again talking about freedom loving people and becoming a five G. Clean country as Slovenia has done today as solidifies staff position. In this fight, the tide is turning against the Chinese Communist Party in its efforts to restrict freedom for all of us and I think what's interesting guys of course he's not saying China he's specifically saying. The Chinese Communist, party so he's criticizing the the system of government and control rather than country and the people itself, and that's I suppose the GATT out card But this is the way that the trump administration is going I recommend everyone to have a a good read of the clean network program just to see what they're saying in that and. Quite apart from anything else it does make it clear and not that it's part of the trump administration's drive and it's very interesting phrasing not the United States, not the State Department but the trump administration. So a spot of electioneering perhaps

Well as you as you mentioned I did in the only part of my career work in professional services with IBM in the US. And then in the mid nineteen ninety S I came back to the UK and I joined the British. Telecom, bt and what the twentieth bt. So I've been really in the telecom space now for or three decades and seeing the development from. abloh through first generation. Now into a fifth generation and my background is in product and product management and joint benches, it had a number of course Europe. We have very similar correct trajectories. We'll explore that in a minute, but it's great to talk to another Tokai friendly person. So back on season two, episode four, we spoke with your colleague Paul. Scanlon about the future of five. G.. And we had a really interesting discussion about why's approach to five G. From Technology Point? Is You know I? Ask you a bunch of technology questions today. But what is five gene to you? Five G. as it implies is the next generation and every generation of brings new opportunities with the Wallet Space. But potentially, I. Think. The second generation was significant. The full generation was significant and the fifth generation is probably very significant with an industry can be criticized a little bit of over promising to quote Bill Gates's overestimate the short term and underestimate the long term and five G. is going to deliver on a number of promises that perhaps it'd be made over the last few years. But it four G. was about APPS and consumers and smartphones five. is about connected devices and B. to be health and agriculture and verticals. So we think we're on the cusp of. A major change in the telecommunications industry and ecosystem around it. I'm sure we're going to talk about that, but it may take another two or three years before the networks rolled out and the applications developed and someone has the aw iphone moments in five G.. What's funny? You Miss Three G is that inflection point? I? Remember when three g came out and I went nine, the carrier, but everyone was promising video calling. I think my too cozy mind tie life. It was really about foster incident although when my guys back to three G or Heaven Forbid Eighth? Edge? I just have to create jogging and should be illegal in any country. There's enough legislation being talked about in our industry right now, I would suggest that the superior technology of four G is going to replace creepy and you're gonNA. See Three G retired property before g that there are some applications onto g which swell three G that spectrum probably will be reformed and used in five G.. Leave.

"Annoying the entire state. He wants to talk about Being a good economist. That's the worst return on Investment I. I wouldn't invest with that guy in one hundred years so you can't buy your way in. You gotta spend time person a person here. That's why Bernie does well this way. Trump does well here. Frankly because what you see is what you get a understanding handle that governor it is it is. What's on your license plates? Live free or die. I just don't understand it more than four words on a license plate. It's how we live here. That's what I mean so when you live under socialism or are you free no of course not in. That's right away with New Hampshire it makes the trump maybe trump wa. I still don't even the Democrats in New Hampshire Oughta be imbued with a little of that sentiment. No and they're going to support a socialist. Well they are I mean look. That's why Bernie got sixty percent. Six hundred thousand sixteen. He'll be lucky to get thirty percent. this this time around. You have more moderates that are trying to be moderate colobus ours going to search. He's going to surprised a lot of people today. Biden Buddha. jig Is Socialist. He comes off as a motor but he's very social along with warne which ultimately is going to lead to a very brokered convention convention. This summer is going to be very ugly. It's going to be like. W W E matching Milwaukee as they try to figure it out and they're not going to be able to right. They're just not going to because they don't the two sides of that party. Don't play well in the sandbox with strong economy. That's what's GonNa give trump the momentum to win November. So have you been Dixville Notch. I Have I won. I won their sixty two two and my first election in sixteen and that was present. So what about Bloomberg. He won three of those people. There is that is that a harbinger. No basically I don't know for sure I think all the folks voting. They're pretty much all of the same family so you know. They just had a burp Bloomberg on the mind. Going to go vote for Bloomberg Bloomberg is Kinda thumbed. MD's knows here in terms of New Hampshire. He's trying to buy an election which the progressive socialist are not going to allow a OUGHTA touch white old billionaire by his way into the nation. That's just just not going to happen. Now he will be influential because he's ultimately going to get a lot of delegates as will biden and some of the other candidates they're going to have to figure all that out but I just can't see nationally nationally Bloomberg walking away with this thing the socialist pushed Pelosi around their shirts that can push Bloomberg and binding around. I don't care how much money they have to use. Think when it's all said Said and done then at Bernie Sanders is going to be the nominee. I think that's the most likely scenario but it's going to be ugly. It is because it means the the moderates aren't gonNA come out for him if if it's a moderate socialist won't come out for them they just don't play well together those two sides and I don't think they're gonNA just magically get it together all of a sudden and right before right before November so that it could be also somebody that we don't even know I mean it literally could be a candidate that isn't running that's how brokered convention sometimes play out out so it's GonNa be exciting on their side. But in the meantime we're focused on the economy is booming. Economy here in New Hampshire. A lot of states are doing very well economically. That means more money in people's pockets. Get for themselves for their neighbors their community. That's how they're going to vote in November because it's in their interest to secure for themselves their family and their future economy really does drive. Live a lot of what happens in that ballot box governor a brokered convention could be the best bet for Bloomberg though. Obviously he's coming at this very unconventionally. It could be because I don't know what what happens with a guy with they've never had a broke convention with a billionaire that doesn't care about his billions it will spend whatever he needs within that convention medium. I don't know how that would work. It's going to be. It's going to be interesting to watch. That's for sure you know who knows who who really knows. I think Warren is GonNa really start falling off if Biden doesn't do well. He's got to put all his money into south. Carolina Hopefully Win South Carolina and give himself a little bit of momentum to win some of those southern Democrat states where he should do well in Bloomberg spending a fortune in in places like Texas and Massachusetts and other states right now states that he could not win in the general by the way but he could get him the nomination are well. Thanks for coming on wall. Maybe we'll check back with after we get the results but you bet on absolutely bet I got all the answers. No nothing that you're never in doubt we liked uh-huh coming up.

"Some even came close to doing so. Nowadays however division of a global telecoms companies seems to be dwindling here to tell us why is nick files the FTC's telecoms correspondent. Nick can you take us back in time. A decade or two what position were telecom companies and. Then what did they hope to achieve two decades ago obviously were in the middle of the tech boom but it was also the telecom boom telecoms companies like define bt ice and say these giant businesses associes share. Prices were absolutely enormous as the potential of wireless communications which launched in the ice. He's really found. Its Mijo in the nineteen ninety started to really really come through as a potential lucrative and global phenomenon so companies like Vodafone Telefonica the Big European guys they will spinning off a strength ahead in their home. Markets to expand across the world where the mobile revolution hadn't happened yet. So it was. It was a real opportunity for the industry to finally become global liberal industry before it was quite localized often. The biggest telecoms companies in each country were government owned the hadn't been a lot of consolidation. So this was the first opportunity for telcos to bicycling go imperial in the same way that the mining industry is a car. Industries have done seven achieve those levels of scale. How far they get fulfilling decision? Very far was an incredibly active period. I mean if we invite a fine in about nine hundred ninety seven ninety very small wallace. Stop at Newbury within two or three years is I'd spent two hundred billion dollars on two deals alone which is in the US and in Germany but that also expanded into Africa into Japan taken stikes in China and that even as far as Fiji this was a real landgrab and it wasn't just fight a fine most the big European players and some international plaza. We're also doing so. Had People like Hutchison coming in from Hong Kong into Europe. But mostly it was. You're out and that's partly because of technology that was developed table. GSM which was the two G standard ended that was European invention. It worked incredibly well up and up the world of my all. Communications is a commercial entity and then spread into these other markets which had been in much slower to embrace it. You recently did a longer piece on this where you argued that the Swedish company Taylor was an example of of how this went wrong. Can you explain what you meant. Yes of course. Talia is an interesting example. They're not a big company and the grace game things. They're great example Apple. Oh of this global push tell you emerged with a Finnish company called scenario which was as equivalents in the neighboring country and scenario had been crucial to building Turkey's mine my all find company and from that experience pushed out through Eurasia and what was kind of the second wave of this global push the telecoms industry and that took the mullahs why across into supermarkets. Latin opole so you had this situation where Sweden's version of bt is building a mobile telecoms network on top of Everest. The growth opportunity was huge. wjr But in the end it did not pay off for the middle. Why are these companies been unsuccessful dominating global markets? There are a number of reasons why the telecom sector it didn't succeed in this global. Push part of them regulation part of them that local markets actually proved to be very different in style. I mean if the regulatory point someone live I define Use a a by would have in Europe alone have to deal with something like a hundred and forty different regulators so unlike other industries which are possibly less regulated. That's a real headache and and it really gets in the way of trying to but also the expansion itself had an impact vice legally companies loaded themselves up with debt through this massive buy in builds global Bush that caused problems down the line when they had to get that under control but also I think as the boomtime finished and mobile as we saw in Europe when it was a huge huge cash cow. It didn't quite work at lot. That in many other markets especially emerging market swear it proved relatively easy to sign up millions of customers very quickly. But but the opera's the average revenue per user which is an important metric in telecoms just didn't pay off and justify the expense one did three g come in and what impacted have under under the coast market. Three G was an important moment for the telecom sector and the unwinding the story even though it was twenty years ago. And that's partly because the cost of acquiring hiring three g licenses and countries like Germany and the UK proved so abe active and so expensive. That's it really slowed everything down you know in the UK. Nothing I think vita fine say that was spending some six billion pounds each so launch strategy and that would have been great if their vision of the future to justify that cost at proved correct act instead three g proved to be a bit of flop and so all these traditional telecoms companies have been falling short of expectations types of companies have been booming. WHO's profiting in today's look communications era? That's absolutely right. I mean you have companies like Apple. Obviously who have built an extremely global company that used these telecoms networks you also so have the digital media companies the facebooks the net flicks is. This is not a new phenomenon now but when they appeared on the scene telecoms companies with themselves still trying to do things like contents still try to develop apps that would work across multiple markets. And they just didn't get it rights and what they found instead is a huge part of that digital revenue that they thought they might capture by building. The networks has gone elsewhere. Where is the line between these companies and telecommunications companies how they managed to flourish one point if you ask the telecoms industry is that telecoms is more utility like they have to spend an awful lot of money building the networks that regulated as if they utilities in many cases is whereas people on facebook? I was saying huge fines and a lot of talk especially at a Europe about regulation now have had pretty free run for many many years and I think has been a clear demarcation line between telecoms and technology. I'll probably also add that back. Twenty years ago companies via defendant probably presumed that they brand would have a resonant connection with Cosima that people would have some sort of empathy with that brand wants to be positive. Instead it's probably more apple and facebook and Samsung but if actually managed to achieve that people want to buy their products. They're not really that bothered about the network as long as it works. Can you expand turned on infrastructure. All of the data we transmit through. Our phones has to pass some kind of pipe. Cable or satellite right. That's right so it's fundamental infrastructure for the way we live our lives and the communication element of that but there are different types of infrastructure. If we got back to Talia they still operate this global carrier business. A spat is a global telecoms. Company is not very profitable and nobody really knows about it. Basically that is just shunting facebook pictures around the world facebook. Pay Them full that that anti them very much and the INCONCEIVA- doesn't really have any saw it if it so that is the true dumb pipe. That the industry's always railed against. And what about Twat. Could they become successful global telecoms company. While is an interesting example. It's not just wild. Why it's knock your and Ericsson as well in the the answer is yes the supply chain? Saudi Telecom's has been global success. Story what we're seeing now with. Wow I in particular is even they Struggling to maintain the global story that they've spent so much effort building politics has come in supply. The try dispute come into play and there is if you like Bulls being rebuilt in the global telecoms uh-huh industry with some countries saying we want them so although the opportunity was there and largely fulfilled on the supply side of the telecoms industry even that is starting to fragments again again. And so how do you think the future is going to look like. Do you have any predictions over the coming decade for telecommunications the telecoms industry is now peeling back tackling this global push has been doing for some time but it was saying Telefonica the Spanish Telco now splitting off these big moves now to really repeal listen to focus on on local but regions. I think that's what we could say over the next few years so again back to Talia. They've bought Cable Company. In no way a media company in Sweden. They're starting starting to sort of regionalize and get back to their roots. A big strong important company in a region. And so we'll get to see some of that but what we're seeing around. The fringes engine is Companies like orange and to some extent by defining Africa moving into banking into financial services. So they had sort of trying to get a bit more horizontal and gets away. Why from the cool sort of settling contracts and finds to customers in the US? At and T. H. B. O.. Tom Mona so they moving more into the content side of things from this so telecoms is in a bit of a state of flux. I think anybody's really sure how it's going to play out. Ultimately it's still going to be a struggle to avoid being dumb pipe intending to the utility ability but the voice dreaded by become. Thanks and thank you for listening.

"Providers evolved from just being in our homes to being in our pockets, it is increasingly important to understand what kinds of data. They collect on us who they share it with and how it is used with these concerns in mind, the FTC has launched a probe into several ISP's to see how they use our data. And if they are following the rules. Here's one of the main reasons why I believe the FCC should be in charge of regulating. The telecommunications space. The FTC mandate is not very well empowered. For the FTC as long as a company, I'm grossly over simplifying this. This is a much more complicated back and forth discussion, please look up an individual egged zone. She breaks this stuff down amazingly. Well in interviews. She has one with to the point worn only where she. Laser scalpel delineates, the differences between what FTC regulation looks like. And what regulation should look like. But me translating that oversimplifying it. Essentially as long as a company properly discloses in their terms of service, how they're going to screw you the FTC can't do a whole lot about it. So when you're end user license agreement changes because they can change the contract a telecom can change their contract with you at any time, and you have to agree to it. If you wanna keep using their service. The only other thing you can do is not use the internet. That's not a solution. But as long as they're properly disclosing to you that they're going to throttle your connection that they're going to put on a data cap that they're going to interfere with your data that they're going to take packets of your data and sell it off to marketing companies, you know. They can do it. If the FTC is is investigating telecoms. That's how bad the situation has gotten if they're found guilty of any kind of fraud or any type of manipulation or any type of privacy concern. That they just didn't even bother changing their terms of service or their end user licensing agreement. That's how brazen the telecommunications industry has gotten. Which is ridiculous. Do we have a a spam? Marin hold on. Let's see where. And you know, what I'm just going to go. All right. Let's see if that helps. Okay. So little little pause there to do some some internet censorship of my own. I like censoring people on the internet. Yeah. If the FTC is actually getting involved in something it means that the telecom the telecommunications industry because it's not just like Comcast. It's everybody AT and T. Comcast cool fiber t mobile Verizon, everyone is getting investigated right now. And again, there isn't even any smoke here. This is sort of a proactive investigation of business practices in privacy. How they handle privacy situations. But of any are actually found to have violated. Their their terms of service. That's ridiculous. The FTC can't really regulate the space to the effectiveness that we would hope for protecting something like net neutrality or data privacy data security. So that'll be really bad. I am. Oh, all right folks RA. Quick before we get to article thirteen. I know I'm a. I'm running a little long here already. I do need to check in real quick. Again.

I got for the system I got digitally from the Microsoft store. So there there are no discs involved this much movie that I bought like five years ago. But it's it's really interesting because for the longest time, you know, you know, ever since iffy. Sixty you know, was a clips by the XBox was that everyone had this opinion that Microsoft is very much just wandering the wilderness with like where do you want to go with it is it your all the one entertainment machine is at a video gaming machine is at you know, what he wanted to be in. I think you know, what you guys have been describing Microsoft just focusing up focusing up on what they actually want to do what they want accomplish with a machine instead of just having what we need to be in this space. Let's have a competitor out there the same way. Like, you know, Zun was like, well, you know, my apples in this. You know, music music space, we need to offer something very similar. So that's just you know, put together product service push it out there. See who bites apparently no-one or not a lot and Zun or not a good comparison. The fate of. Squirting there. Please stop. Gen other prediction. Was that Canada would take a stronger stance on net neutrality, and you know, legally they have a late late last year. But earlier this year, they they enshrined make this bigger for everyone in parliament net neutrality in the telecoms legislation. So that part is going to pass. However, as we know with all things, it's not the end of the debate and telecom companies both in Canada and outside of it are still pushing to maybe have some modification of this law and something that the CRT the the Canadian bridge at the FCC as not necessarily dismissed at hit. Now, if I remember Jen was saying as the United States looks to to rollback metro candidate will make it stronger. Sounds like that that happened that happened that part happened. But it's it's definitely still ongoing story. Yeah. But it's but I think she gets credit. Not that that that is the, you know, a full point in my in my estimation. Yeah. Does she nailed it? Good job, Jen cutter. All right. Let's move on to my own predictions. At all. I will I will throw myself on the mercy of the court with this one because we recorded too early. Bitcoin was on a on a run a heater. Yeah. At the time we recorded. I think it was probably around ten thousand dollars per coin. And I said bitcoins. Gonna pass fifteen thousand dollars next year. Well, Owen behold it did pass fifteen thousand dollars by the end of December. So I think it was in fact at fifteen thousand dollars when the year began, however, Sarah, I think you were probably pointing towards it certainly didn't stay there. No it. Sure. Didn't. And I know a lot of people whose IRA's. Have. Have have been anyway, we won't there. But but yes, you're right. What when you when you made this prediction? I mean was like, yeah. It's going to get to fifteen. It's definitely going to. And it did was crazy. I thought it was on a trajectory to eventually hit fifteen like I was like, yeah. It's gonna keep going. It's going to hit fifteen might even go farther and it spiked too fast. And then of course, imploded to hitting round three thousand dollars towards the end of this year. And there's even been some allegations. Now that there was president manipulation roughly a year ago when when the Bye-bye phase of bitcoin Mazang going that has always been one of the things that people have worried about but. Only if the everything, okay? Right. Sarah following. Yeah. If the. If the idea here was to show that bitcoin was a robust healthy financial option than that.

Easy in Australia what is this what does this mean for its prospects there Good morning minus yes that's right it. Has been a bumpy road for Vodafone here in Australia the, markets proved a tough nut to crack. I think if? You ask a lot of customers down? Here Certainly some early teething problems with, the coverage especially out of the main urban areas and that gave them some bad pay in the early days I think that out of. Certain to a certain extent and if you look at. This what it does for Vodafone adds that the ads that fixed line broadband exposure that it doesn't have already a established player, in that sector Vodafone itself has got six million mobile customers, in Australia so it's a decent chunk of of a relatively small telecoms, market in global terms what they're trying to do with this daily. Really propel themselves, into, into a. Stronger competition with the two two big providers who are Telstra. And the Singapore telecoms Optus units here and. They've got a real chance of doing that with this deal Yeah I mean I'm I'm, a huge advocate of the competition because you, come from the UK market where is fierce to this market, which has got to and you've got no choice just put the competition, in context for me in all is it fear says it Hof Well I think a lot of people would say it's not been it's. Not been strong enough you have Telstar which was, the former national national nationalized provided which was, privatize many years ago now knife had a very dominant position. In the market for a long time now opposite has emerged as a as. A viable second force in the market but I think if you ask the average Australian if they're happy with with their telecoms provider a lot of them would say not a. Customer. Service levels, often often not really what is what is required of a developed market economy and the hope now is presumably that with this with this day we have a genuine. Third force in the market that can hopefully improve standards, in bring prices down for consumers Okay may the force be with the telecom operators.
