You know, what they say about your favorite movie? No matter. How many times you watch? It always ends the same. That is not true. For one episode of the Netflix show black mirror. An episode called bender snatch lets viewers make decisions for the main character the format reminds some people of the shoes your own adventure book series. And that prompted choose your on adventures publisher to choose this adventure. They chose to sue. Here's a Lexi Horowitz Ghazi of NPR's planet money podcast. Choose your own adventure books, are what people often point to when trying to explain the concept of interactive narrative the series sold more than two hundred fifty million copies over its heyday in the nineteen eighties and nineties, it's popular. Rarity waned, but the fanfare around net. Flicks is banner snatch has signaled new hope for the interactive genera, Shannon, Gilligan is the CEO. And publisher of choose co the company that currently publishes that choosier on adventure books, and is suing Netflix, even she sees banner snatch as a turning point for the interactive narrative market. I think that we are seeing the beginning of a new genre in streaming end in theatrical release. So why is the small publisher of the choose your own adventure books suing the company that could help jump start the market for interactive content. We simply want to protect our trademark bender. Snatch tells the dark and sometimes gruesome story of teenage programmer as he works to adopt a fictional book called Bander snatch into a video game with multiple branching plotlines, choose coz lawsuit evolved out of this scene knows that she's your own eventually book. You decide what your character does? Look a game. That is the moment. Choose co claims that Netflix ran afoul of their trademark. Choose goes suit claims that net Netflix is use of the phrase. Choose your own adventure causes confusion for viewers about whether or not Bander snatch is affiliated with choose coz signature book series. It's not for the record. It also claims that being associated with the dark content in banner snatch turning the family friendly reputation of choosier on adventure books and the company is suing for both in injunction against net. Netflix and damages of at least twenty five million dollars again, choose coz publisher, Shannon, Gilligan trademark law. Requires that you protect your Mark. Because if you don't you lose control of it. So it makes perfect sense. From choose coz perspective to try to ring. Whatever value remains out of this trademark. Chris bregman teaches law at New York University spokesman says that choose coz lawsuit is also about combating one of the great dangers to try. Mark holders. The concept known as genera side, genera side is the idea that trademark law is not supposed to be withdrawing words from the English language if the trademarked name for a particular product manages to become so popular it's used in everyday language to describe a whole category of products. It runs the risk of losing its status as a valid trademark case. In point the words zipper was originally a trademark for a tooth closure. But people started using the words zipper for any tooth closure and that trademark became worthless. It became generic aspirin thermos escalator just a few one time trademarks that have succumbed to genera side. And while companies are obliged to fight to protect their trademark. They also run the risk of losing it in the process because the legal determination that a trademark has become generic often happens through lawsuits like this one Chris sprig mint says that means there's an inherent risk to choose coast strategy.

But she says that Bander snatch has tested the technology and confirmed the appetite for new interactive programming. What does it mean for romance? What does it mean for documentaries personally?

"You don't know what you're going to need to do for this lip saying, you don't want to sort of constrain yourself like if you if you do end up getting peanut butter, you have to do something like that. I feel like how else do you lip sync to that song without sort of rapid movements. There's sort of necessary with the catsuit which also is why I think trinity did feel like they need to remove it right away. They get the whole while she has to do it because she's in a organ giant ask cloak, but also for that lip syncs onto work. I don't know how you do peanut butter with a giant ask look on. So when I will say, you know, she did her according to fair her trademark, but shake, and I feel like that just that put it over the top or over the bottom of for me. I should say. And I mean, she just think jasmine was doing her thing. But I think trinity had the energy say what you want to about the reels with the fact that she she did that actual peanut butter reference in whole compared to Jasmine's like three. Year old dancing to dancing to an EDM song trying to shake whatever they can. And just nothing's working because there's no meat on those bones. Like it was paltry in comparison. I think to your point Brent jasmine understood that as well. So this was by far the biggest slam dunk of the four lip syncs and trinity gets to keep her crown. She was able to benefit from the fact that she was the the most threatening it seems nobody wants to pick her or they had different agendas, and so she a- she benefits from that. All right. Let's go limit on number two there versus Valentina Q the telenovela music. They are doing shitty girl. Now what I will say Farrow was doing faira. And the best way. She could this is a long step from the ant that means well at the wedding dancing that we were talking about from the Henny challenge that gift that Liana absolutely loves to pieces. She was doing her own like, Christina Britney Spears hair tossing fantasy. But my question is like if you're going to do that why did she pick that? That wig that just had her hair so much in front of her face. She was fighting an uphill battle as it was. But I don't think it was necessarily helped by the fact that she had to constantly brush her hair out of her face considering she was throwing it around all the time. Yeah. Exactly. I mean, it's a lip sync Valentina famous for covering her mouth during a lip sing, you know. Like, this is a similar issue. Where hair was just always there. And I think also, you know, the dance moves that she was doing I don't know. I felt like Valentine is dances fit better with a song. And that's part of doing a good job with the lip sync is understanding what the song is an embodying the song and the best way possible. And I felt like sort of two point of oh, the sexy Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera hair, flips like, it was good. But it's also didn't quite fit the song navy as best it could. And that's why I liked Valentine is interpretation more. Also Valentine I felt like it was higher energy despite faira maybe moving more. Maybe. But I thought this was also slammed on for Valentina preventive again. It wasn't wasn't great shakes again. I didn't care for the song didn't think either one of them performed that amazing. But I do agree with Liana that even though Ferrell was moving more that it seems like Valentino was more engaged facially with the song. Like, she. Her she constantly had her eyes open and her mouth moving like, you can live sing, and then you can sink like you can move your mouth in such a way that really accents the fact that your lip synching, I feel like she really succeeded in that. And that's probably what she won this than anything in the fact that she really doesn't have a weakness when it comes to lip syncs like I haven't seen Valentina lip sync badly yet. I mean, if you're going to beat her you're going to have to do something pretty spectacular..

"Of the indigenous in Prague, America's has been as you know. We don't see them as teachers Whittlesey him as actresses. We don't see them. In any kind of professional roles. So that hasn't changed thinking back to the dominant trope of India Maria, which was a very popular character in Mexican telenovelas television that actually it was exported to the Americas. The was the indigenous Maria, which was you know, Dom was not modern and the whole show revolved around the trials of the indigenous character trying to figure out the CD in Mexico City, but historically that has been representations. Right. So you've seen Romo. Correct. Correct. Yes. So what did you like about the movie because yell? It's Aparicio is a domestic worker. Correct. Well, I I'm not seen her in every frame, quite honest, amazing filmmaker on he makes everything look beautiful. But where would you see, you know, her? I think she steals the entire show. I consult a film us a fairytale. This is quite arms fairy tale of their relationship. The domestic relationship between domestic on his. Family very understand. Correct. And he's very personal right? But I think that's interesting because we see her life through his eyes. So again, we have to remember that. This is what she's the lead character. We're not seeing a story from her perspective from the perspective of a domestic. That's why I think it's important that viewers realize that this is a more romanticize view of what that Donald relationship. Probably would look like from the standpoint of their domestic herself. But also the medi domestics, but do look like the league that are indigenous the fairytale that is Roma contrast with that beautiful cover of upper ratio in vogue, Mexico. What did you think about that? When you saw I was low. And I'm not the only one. I mean, I I almost cried when I saw it. And I think that getting the response know, I tweeted something out because that's how I sold. She's just so, you know, and when you can America and you'll see Saudi beautiful indigenous wearing indigenous people, and we don't want it. And that's that's so important to remember. And that's what that convert dos. And I was also thinking in relationship to the US Latin exploration all the people that look like jelly TSA. Who are now they're the ones that are being now separated from their families and the human is in the context of the US migration debate the refugee crisis. These are all Jill leaks that are out there, you know, and they're all of them are as a beautiful, honest human. So I think that jelly TSA kind of brought that to the forefront.

"But experts say these lengthy breaks bad for the children citing summer learning loss. They go back to school having forgotten some of what was taught the before. Some parents to would welcome not having their kids on the hands for quite so long over the summer, but is changed likely. I'm joined now by Amman Rizvi who's written about this for this week's, he called miss among, hey, I mentioned some leading those. I'm sure some of that happens, but is it really that bad? Yet? Research says that it is pretty bad. So for instance, one study from the US south showed that kids forgot on average, maybe about a quarter of what they learned over the previous school year. And the other really worrying thing about it is that the stent of some of the losses often linked to socio economic status. So children from background. Tend to have more opportunities to practice the skills over the summer. They have more access to things like reading materials or summer enrichment programs, and the often come back to school after the break, having forgotten less as has happened sort of summer after summer off a summit, this feeds into a cumulative achievement gap. We're talking here about the rich world countries like America, Europe, and so what what about in the developing world? So one of the problems that there's very little data from the developing world when I was researching the article, I found just one study from all sorts of Han Africa from children involved in literacy program funded by the American government in Malawi and this study, and is also both say that the extent of something learning, those does seem to be quite alarming, but it's still very, very under studied topic. What about solutions? I suppose one obvious we'll be simply to do away with them to have longer school years. Sure. That's one thing that people talk about setting the America or turkeys, big three month, low math on some holiday could be short and quite a bit. But the thing about. Extending the school year is it could face opposition from teachers, for instance, who say they need long break, and I think some some researches. Some experts say that we don't necessarily need a longest cool year. We could have a show to summer holiday by taking the same number of days and redistributing them elsewhere in the school calendar. I suppose the the third thing is to use that summer holiday better. How is it being used at the moment? Yeah, that's definitely something that is often talks about as well. For instance, wealthier families already using the summer days to try and get a leg up over the p. as many wealthy parents will send their kids to tech Campbell, robotics Campo, Niro science camp. But experts say that there should be more available to children from all backgrounds. So we don't have a situation where a rich summit looks very different for a poll Chelsom what this entails is more learning, but not necessarily more school. So children can use the summit to pick up different kinds of skills. Social, emotional learning, for instance, will to pursue survey sort of niche passion that they have as you say, wealthier families already doing this sort of stuff, isn't it another recipe for widening inequality? Yes, it is. It is if children from the poorest backgrounds struggling to get meals over the summer. Well, wealthy families plowing investment into some programs to help kids do better. It is widening the even get from both ends. So I think it is quite important that these kinds. -tunities to learn to grow. Some are available more widely to everyone.

"That's when the US goes after very specific with the oil and gas industry, which supplies the majority of Iran's government revenue. The sanctions have certainly had an effect. They've certainly exacerbated this currency crisis. Just the mere threat of them. Contributed to the currency crisis. They've also caused the number of foreign companies, particularly European companies that were planning to do business in Iran, to be their step away or at least think about cancelling contracts. So we've seen Tatal which has a two billion dollar contract to develop a major gas field offshore off your on southern coast will almost certainly have to abandon that contract. Airbus has a an agreement to deliver one hundred passenger jets to Iran will probably be unable to do so. Same goes for Boeing, which had planned to twenty billion dollar delivery of eighty planes. It has already scrapped up contract. So all of the foreign investment that was supposed to materialize after the nuclear deal. It's going to pull away now because of these sanctions. I understand that I can make protests in Iran have been calling for death to inflation was they used to call death to America, people in around now likely to stop blaming America again for the country's woes. I think what's different over the past few months is that people are not only blaming America. They're also blaming their own government for the certainly the sanctions have played a role in hurting Iran's economy. They've made medicines much more expensive over the past five to ten years because foreign drugs have been often unavailable and producers have struggled to get raw materials into the country. They've contributed to Iran having a notoriously unsafe airline industry because airlines struggle not only to buy new planes, but even to get spare parts for their existing aging fleets. But we've seen over the past six months to a year is these protests which have been going on almost every day. Now over the summer, they're aimed at a much more domestic set of concerns. Protesters are angry about the amount of money that Iran is spending on foreign policy on supporting the Assad regime in Syria on sending limited amounts of equipment and manpower to help the who's in Yemen. People are complaining about corruption and nepotism in the Iranian economy. So there's, there's been a. Shift in focus almost than a recognition that somebody runs problems are who made and are not a result of economic sanctions. The purpose of the sanctions stated is to try and change the regime's behavior and to get it to renegotiate the nuclear deal. Is it likely to have that effect? It's hard to see how it will. President Trump has said that he wants a deal that not only limits the nuclear program that limits Iran's research ballistic missiles on also one that doesn't have the so-called sunset clauses by which after ten or fifteen years provisions of the dealer set to expire. The thing is though the existing deal, it was the product of mud only two years of negotiations, but several years before that of very tough, very coordinated. Sanctions that were put in place by the Obama administration working with allies around the world. They were able to bring you runs oil exports down by fifty, eight percent in a period of just three years. They were able to inflict enough economic pain that eventually the regime had to come to the table and make this deal. And this was the best deal. After five years of sanctions and the the best deal that could be achieved the issue. Now for President Trump is it's hard to see how he can inflict that kind of economic pressure on Iran. He hasn't coordinated these sanctions with allies. In fact, he pulled out of the deal unilaterally, whereas all of the other signatories to the deal, say it's the working. And so you have countries like India, for example that have actually stepped up their purchases of Iranian oil over the summer Turkey, which is, of course, a NATO member has said it will continue to buy oil and gas from Iran, and China is quite happy to play spoiler advise about a quarter of Iran's crude exports right now. CNPC Chinese energy giant has volunteered to step in and take over two atolls contract to develop the South Pars gas field. And so you have a number of countries that are not going to comply with these sanctions, and it's hard to see Trump being able to achieve such large reduction in Iran's oil exports, and it's hard to see him, therefore getting a better deal than Obama did Greg Carlstrom. Thank you very much. Thank you..

"He's he said about women about gays about blacks, just this sort of shake things up and bring Brazil back to prosperity through even he suggested sort of military involvement in his government. So there are reasons to be worried about him because he, he doesn't have very concrete proposals for what he would do for the country and change. His solution seems to be just to disparage everybody else around him and the way that politics has been done traditionally and that's really captured the feeling of Brazilian voters. What's not known is whether that's going to be enough to push him into the second row. Round. So a lot of people compare him to Trump, you know, in some ways, he is a similar kind of outsider figure whose charismatic in promises to do politics differently. The difference is that he doesn't have a party structure behind him. He's not representing the Republican party as Trump was. And in fact, his party has been unable to form a single coalition, which means he's got only a few seconds on the television. Once official advertising starts. I think he's fair to say that the polls show him with that big popular support base. How could he conceivably win? So he's got around eighteen or nineteen percent the same amount that he's had for months now. And basically he's banking on keeping that strong sheriff voters almost three quarters of whom say that they definitely will vote for him in won't vote for anybody else the and he's hoping that because the field is so fragmented and it's a multi-party system having you know, fifteen percent. Went or twenty percent will be enough to push him into into the second round Abune those three, Sarah other, any other contenders? Well, there are there is more than ten candidates total at a, but two of them are lagging right behind in the polls. He's got cdo Gomez as sort of leftist former governor who is hoping to get some of the voters, who would who would vote for Lulu with his his sort of left wing social programs and slightly populist proposals. And then you have Medina Sealdah who is in a long time, environmental nece twos who's run for president twice end is well known and well loved, but seen as as rather weak. But neither of those to really have the coalition's or the television time that traditionally are needed to to get voters to vote for them. So Ramez, then thanks very much for joining us from Sao Paulo and. Gun show. We'll be talking again as the soap opera nears its climax. Thank Simon, take care. This week President, Donald Trump signed an executive order, restoring sanctions on Iran's economy, making good on his promise in may withdraw from two thousand fifty nuclear deal. Clearly, these measures will hurt Iran, but will there -ccomplish marshalls to discuss all this? I'm joined on the phone by the economists, Middle East correspondent Greg, Carlstrom Heller, Greg. Hi, thanks for having me. Could we just start with the general states of the Iranian economy? Not very healthy is understand it. No, it's not the biggest problem that Iran has been having over the past year is really unprecedented currency crisis. The reality Iranian currency, typically up until last summer went for thirty five to forty thousand real on the dollar we've seen over the past year is it's just absolutely collapsed. That's gone through one low after another. At the end of July hit about one hundred and nineteen thousand on the dollar. It's recovered a bit since then, but it's still well below. Historic levels. The government has tried to stop this lied by imposing some very tough currency controls by cracking down on unlicensed currency dealers. It's also requiring everyone to use the official rate which is still pegged at forty, two thousand on the dollar. But none of this is really worked in in stopping the collapse of the rail on the black market. Just put all the new American sanctions and how big ineffective they like to have. This is the first of two rounds of sanctions that will take effect this year. This first one, it's fairly wide ranging goes after Iran's automotive industry, restricted ability to trade gold and other precious metals. It also tries to cut Iran out of the world financial system. By the main thing, it's access to US dollars. The arguably more serious sanctions will take effect in November..

"Long international editor and coming up on today's show as the US reimposes sanctions on Iran, we ask what the effects will be an Iran's economy. The biggest problem that Iran has been having over the past year is really unprecedented currency crisis and are low school. Some holidays around the world, having a negative effect on children and families. Research says that it is pretty bad. One study showed that kids forgot on average, maybe about a quarter of what they lent over the previous school year. But I to presume will with the first round in the presidential and congressional elections, just two months away is beginning to look more like a telenovela Latin American soap opera than a political campaign. A monthly cost of suitors is vying for the hand of an often jilted electorate, they include an old flame passing his suit from jail cell, a sway new has all the attributes spreads nominee one, but treat to tell a bit of a ball and rascal who promises excitement and danger. Unlike the plots of past political dramas, this one is building up to an ending that's impossible to guess. Joining me on the phone from Sao Paulo, to make sense of it. All is ceremoniously economists. Brazil correspondent. Hello, Sarah. Hi, Simon, can we stop with the mood in Brazil at the moment, I is the election yet generating lots of excitement. There's sort of two things going on at once. It's all the newspapers and television nightly shows are are talking about, but to be honest among ordinary Brazilians, the election still hasn't truly taken hold. Most people are pretty fatigued with their politicians and seemed to be sort of dreading all of the commotion that comes with an election and are just ready for it to be over with who's the most popular? Those politicians is this the man I was referring to who's in jail? Well, we've got sort of a crazy cast of characters. The person that leads in the. Polls. When you ask people spontaneously is a former president louisi- Nacional lieu of the Sealdah, but he's in jail and will almost definitely be banned from running. And so when when you tell people, Lula can't run the person who leads is bullshit Nado far right? Longtime congressman who's managed nonetheless to present himself as as an outsider, who can shake things up, and then you have sort of a host of other candidates. The guy who really should win is a man named Giraldo walkman from the PS db are long time. Well, respected centers party, and he's got almost half of the total public funds and television time. So all the traditional advantages that win elections here in Brazil, but he still lagging behind in the polls. Let's take them one by one if is still in jail and can't run. Can he nominate a candidate who. Would pick up his votes. Sure. So the the Workers Party Lula's party has been very insistent that Lula's their candidate and they're going to fight until the bitter end. But if what everyone expects happens and he's, he's kicked out by the courts, they will put up another candidate and they're banking on this switcheroo at the last minute being functional and the votes that would go to Lula transferring to someone else who might be a former mayor of of south Paulo named Fernando Haddad. They haven't confirmed that, but that's what everyone's saying, but it's really unknown whether people's love for Lulu would translate into love for this other guy amid moving onto the man behind him in the polls. Mr. Bolsonaro he said some pretty outrageous things in the past. How why reached we be about his possible election, how likely possibilities? Both Donato is the Grandjean cold NATO or the. Great unknown factor in this election because since the beginning of the year, he's been far ahead of anyone else in the polls and has gotten quite a following on social media and among people for months who who really weren't talking about anything in the election except for of this character in. That's probably because of the inflammatory things..

As the EU and US meet for trade talks, are the markets overly optimistic?
"Steady as she goes. European, stocks are steady on earnings after a positive session in Asia never. Mind all that. Other static, which. I now by Kristina. Hooper chief global market strategist for Invesco Christina good morning welcome in our faces at this moment is, this. Meeting today between, President Donald Trump and the European Commission chief. But it seems investors are deter To stay focused on, the fundamentals do earnings Trump trade Earning certainly Trump trade in the minds of investors However I would argue that that may be a mistake Why is that Well because trade could, have a very very significant impact on. The overall, economy I mean let's face it if we start to see any kind of amplify -cation of what we've already seen that could be extremely problematic in a number. Of different ways I would point, first and, foremost of course to the kind of, lack of confidence, lack of, visibility economic policy uncertainty as, an enormous problem something that really camps down, on business investment and we're already hearing about it through fed contacts as well as the Federal. Reserve beige book this, is. A problem yes but as, as I noted the market seemed to. Disagree with you most to group of ten currencies are steady is as traders await developments from this. US, EU meeting well because there's this expectation that none of this will actually. Come to fruition Even though some already has I also. Think a lot of, what's. Causing markets to ignore this, is that there's no frame of reference. Last time we went through a serious economic impact from tariffs you could argue not many of us. Who, are alive so where does that leave the Federal Reserve do you think That leaves the Federal Reserve. In a precarious place but, we know what Sharon Powell's outlook is which is if it's not showing up in the data I'm not doing anything, about it and so even though we're hearing that. There's been a, big increase in economic policy uncertainty and that some businesses have already scaled back or postponed business investment it is. Business as usual and that's really the problem is that we know these risks are lurking there once it. Shows up in the data, it could be too late windows Wall Street factory in. This pause this business that you're talking about Wall Street starts to. Factor it in when it shows, up in the data but even then I think there's going to be focus on whatever is positive that's. Going on right now it's earnings and of course that's a. Very important factor shaping the outlook for stocks but I. Would argue that earnings are in the rear? View window and So what we need to really do is look ahead and, see what the future might bring and so, that's why the earnings calls are important because we want, to hear from companies now thus. Far FX has been a bigger area of focus for as a p. five hundred, companies, but that makes sense I do believe though that tariffs are an. Issue and we're going to, hear that more and more of those people who's fond of asking what could possibly go wrong but let's say it, goes right isn't isn't the market correct for for. Sort of anticipating, based on the facts rather than the potential if it goes right absolutely but I think there's a much smaller. Chance of it going right then going wrong already we've seen more terrorists come to fruition than the market. Expected and so the market, has reacted in a very short term way but on. Its blinders and gone back to focus on positive but the reality is That. If things get worse than it looks as though the Trump. Administration is very much focused on amplifying I'm straight telenovela and so, it could get a lot worse
