And like i said i can only look at common opponents. The which was olympics folks. Atlanta's folks and folks four through fight with android with a torn shoulder way through the fire and gave him a good good accounts of itself and liam williams destroyed folks limbs got aggressive punching stylists is aggressive is younger than an android is twenty nine on draws thirty one.

Who can keep the pressure on android stylize to be south pole. Let's keep the distance keeps them off and give yourself a bit of a rest by to power moline. Williams is never going to give him a chance. He's going to be on him from the round one and force in the pace. He's not gonna be walking into into shells is going to be educated pressure and is very accurate and he's pushing very hard so i'll give him every chance of stopping andrade.

I used to train him years ago in using the gym greats. The now's era. And i know he's got he's still got the competitive egg so that down as i've luethi me with a simple game of table tennis but as the week goes on and going to build up the pressure on him challenge.

So that's why in our legal. What could turn into something. Worse in order for him to recuperate in it to heal it and then he's gonna have to use it when we training because all these old sparring it'll be at the point. Now just move around.

Yellen: Biden's plan could restore full employment by 2022
"Is still in a deep hole with millions of lost jobs because of the pandemic. But she says President Biden's $1.9 trillion relief plan could generate enough growth to restore by next year. What economists call full employment. Carol spoke about that with CBS News business analyst Jill Schlessinger sponsored by the pathways at Warrington, premier personal care and memory care community. If we got a big boost in stimulus, there is a lot of data from last year that could Indicate that this year could be a very big turning point for the economy again. It depends the nature of the stimulus. It's not just that all stimulus dollars are created equally. If the money goes to the right people, the ones who are sidelined already, that will go a long way to get us back on to where we were prior to this pandemic recession. You know, we can't start filing our taxes on Friday. You know, I've read a number of different articles kind of advising people whether they should file early or wait for this pandemic relief to be passed. What? What should people what do people need to know? Here before filing well, Well, First of all, number one is that I don't think that we're going to get a delay in tax filing like we did last year, so it will be in April 15th deadline. The other thing to remember is your filing for last year, so I wouldn't necessarily go ahead and wait. Unless you believe you owed a lot of money in taxes. Most people get refunds and remember that if for some reason, you did not get an economic impact payment a stimulus check last year and you think you were due one. You have to file and there's something there's a way to actually get that money. If you're do it right. It's called the recovery rebate credit. So even if you didn't file a return, or you didn't have enough money to file a return in the past, you may have to actually file just to get last year's credit. And also get that second payment that $600 so actually filing early is going to serve you better remember stimulus money not taxable, however. Unemployment benefits. They are taxable, and I know that's a drag. But I really have to underscore any money you received from any programs, state or federal taxable to you. You should get a tax form that will give you the documentation that you need. However, Pennsylvania and New Jersey or

"Thing you know. So yeah I think the Cybersex but again like how intimidating that's got to be one of the most intimidating things a human being can do given the way we've been conditioned even the amount of like body shaming that we experience on a daily basis as we bought by light messaging about what bodies should look like for example getting naked with a new human. I mean that's like yeah but also in terms of how vulnerability can also be ready crazed the in bonds it can also being credible. But it's about this is really you know you have to be brave to embark on this part is well like it takes some guts and you discuss like the natural high that come with giving yourself the opportunity to feel everything and you even wrote a list in your book many lists about all the things that naturally quote unquote like get you high whether it's Doing a new taking on new creative activity at you talk about like sewing are like Ting different things and so love the. That's you come from an encouraging place of right down the things that just bring you joy and lean into those things because you will have so much time and so much energy to be able to do that. Exactly but then we've got so much kind like messaging from the outside about like if I said to you we're GONNA do crofting on Friday night like if you said crofting Friday night so you'll go friends that you usually go out for happy out with it. Can you imagine the eye rolls that you would probably get any man? We're not going to get on high heels and makeup and like you can put on high heels cups crofting as well by the way like. There's no rule that says you have to sit there and with nobody up on a C. Yeah there's just so much and that's another thing that I think becomes really interesting when you step out of that drinking culture you can observe all of these crazy things we tell ourselves about. What constitutes fund. What constitutes a good time. What constitutes connection like. What's worthy of wearing an amazing outfit to buy all those things as just so much conditioning around that but yeah there were so many ways for someone in a nice speak for myself when you so conditioned to all of your quote Unquote Fun Times. Being around alcohol it can take a while to remind yourself was kind of workout. What feels like fun to me. Which one I think having if you're thinking about getting so curious and taking even if it's just taking an extended break from drinking I recommend three months by the way is already kind of window of time to like. A hundred days is a great window of time to really guess flavor for it but yeah. I feel like God what am I going to do? What is going to feel like an so and just again be patient knows that you are not going to have to answer to always questions overnight but the putting in the even what but like being curious than allowing yourself to to show up for life in whatever is being presented to you does so many rewards on the other side of that. I love that. Well thank you so much ruby. Thank you for your book and for your podcasts. And the you're either going to have sober curious to point -O coming out yes. This is fight the first time. I'm announcing anyway.

Where can our listeners? Find you on social media. Yeah although I'm also working on my social media addiction so I'm there intermittently my my instagram handle is at Ruby Warrington and I do Tendai try and ten respond to my fans there and stuff and I post I have I have a retreat. Coming up in upstate. New York in October Asaba curious retreat. Like I said the new book will be out soon too so I went on will thank you so much for letting us join in on the conversation and explore this possibility with you and we just loved our conversation. Thanks so much pappy me. It was really great to talk with you guys so candidates are you gonNA quit drinking way to easing their Kayla. What I remember. I remember that About a year ago I think it was last year last January. You said to me when I arrived at Your House you said I'm going to try and dry ury and I looked at you and good luck with that and I realized how I was an Enabler to you. I didn't support you in saying. Hey you know what if you want to try that? I support that one hundred percent and that was selfish on my part because I knew that if you did that then maybe I would have to try and think about my life and if I should do that as well and how that would affect me because a lot of my social gatherings you are there and so we're with each other a lot and so I knew that that would affect me personally so if you WANNA try a dry month I support. Thank you know I do the same thing. I get frustrated when we have a girls night. And someone's like not drinking and I'm like why Hello this is what we're supposed to be doing here So thank you for saying that but I also totally understand. I do the same thing and you know I. I feel like this was such an important episode because all of a sudden I started seeing all these advertisements for Non Alcoholic Events and Beers that were non alcoholic major beer companies making non Alcoholic Beers and a lot of You know cocktails that were non alcoholic quote Unquote Mock Tales. Yeah but the true. The whole company was based on having bidders and various aperitifs that were non alcoholic but made to taste really great and be able to be using cocktails and then you know the New York. Times recently came out with an article in January saying that alcohol deaths have risen sharply particularly among women. And you know the reality is as we are surrounded by it and it becomes such like day in day out thing and I think you know. It's so easy for people to make jokes of like. Oh my gosh you want a wild night out. Just get a bunch of MOMS together. That need to blow off Steam. True and they'll drink under the table and And so many conversations with friends just being like cut. I don't WanNa feel shitty on Monday morning. I don't WanNa wake up and feel shitty and so I I don't I. I like that I can start looking at my personal relationship with alcohol You know pretending even to totally relating to what you were saying being at an event or a social situation. Where am I having this glass of wine because I think uninteresting because I think that no one will want to talk to me or I won't know how to talk with people or this'll make me funnier or am I having a glass of wine? Because you know what? I'm really happy to be here and I am heart. Open ready to talk with all these people I am enough and I just enjoy the taste of Rosa and this is nothing to do with my self worth. And it's separating those things Really well put because I think that is the first step to us just kind of our relationship with alcohol and knowing the difference between feeling like you need it and then wanting it and there's that that's it's as simple as that and that's something I'm an ask myself before I take a drink because there is so much support it's like we don't have to we. It's not necessary. It really isn't an I think. Sometimes I feel like what's not necessarily but the idea of for every single hang for every single girl's night for every single friend social event And it doesn't mean that all of a sudden every event at our house is going to be dry like barbecue by any means and it's not that like even if you WanNa try you know abstaining from alcohol for awhile that you need a pressure everyone around you but I do like the idea of How am I going to feel how Megan Asleep? How am I physically in my gut gonNA feel how? What are the things I'll be able to do on a Saturday morning? You know. Getting up with The family or even just getting up for myself and extra early to go to a hike. Go take a class And yet your list checked off your to do so. Good feels so good and it doesn't mean that like every Friday night is like a blow out. It's even something as simple as just those couple of glasses of wine. That is taking the edge off or is it just masking something that maybe you need a process in journal out or meditate out or go you know do a yoga class on Friday night. Instead or crafting class like does it have to always be centered around. You know alcohol or can alcohol. Just be the Kucha that's around the actual event that you're there for that year participating got. It's a real honest question that we are going to continue to ask ourselves. And if you're listening and you relate you know join a con- conversation about it because it's it's an ongoing process. It's not just something you fix overnight.

"But doesn't it doesn't have any alcohol. That's not addictive Or even just like much better options than regular sodas. You know 'cause there's alcohol everywhere ever even in Khumbu Hall yes everywhere on every plane rich funny like in New York The New York Times for this piece recently about will the big department stores because nobody shops in the many more because of online shopping that opening ause in that shopping departments and it was like you so transparent trying to lure people in with alcohol. You will try to get them drunk so they spend money and you'll still but it's just does a yoga now. I mean literally everywhere so yeah I think this is like depending on depending on how much you value these connections. Right by de Saint Kitts was speaking to. Your friends may be individually time when you're not drinking and just be like that. This is something I'm trying. I'd really love your support in this. If if someone has a massive problem with that will continue to make you feel bad about it then. I think that it's within your right to question the depths at that connection and whether that's really a friendship is supporting you in that you want keep in your life. What what about if someone? Okay say this is for any of our listeners. That are like okay. I'm GONNA try this. I'm going to tell my friends. I WANNA take a break from drinking and then all of a sudden after a few weeks they all go out and then this person is like I'll have a Oliver Margarita. And then the friends like. But you said you wouldn't drink or anything like that. How do how would you? How have you told people how to navigate than the pressures then all of a sudden the expectations that you put on yourself for you had other people all of a sudden put on you and just make it your own personal journey in your relationship again and this is for anyone who's not Suffering from like a fool on addiction or as been an addict or knows they're within their safe boundaries to kind of go back and forth. I guess see what is has. Been a complicated thing for you to say. Hey said we're getting didn't because Like oh how about this? But ultimately I realized I knew how helpful and I could see other people in my life and so I went through with it and here we are but anyway I mean ultimately it's such an internal thing I mean truly the whole point of being so curious and she osteo southeast questions in Rudy committing to answering them for yourself is so that no matter what situation. You're in you always know that you you can confidently say you'll make the right choice for you if you can't confidently say I'm choosing. This is an experiment will. Because I know it's going to enhance this time with these people don't have the drank. Gift is any shadow of doubt in your mind as to like I kind of know this because it's going to be unhappy this because it's really hard not to let young comfortable not to then don't have drink united and so yeah it can take time to get to that place but ultimate the About about self knowledge knowing yourself and knowing your triggers and knowing the weak spots a nine the nature of this substance. No that is one of the five most addictive substances. There is if you are even on the border of thinking. You might have more of a an addiction problems than you're ready to even properly the cat don't just put it down until you can get clear on that you know. Yeah my advice I mean. I'm I'm very much pro abstinence and the longer the time goes like I said I don't even think about drinking is just not even something that's on the table for me now if I did if I was to pick up a drink now that would be very very specific reason but I can't honestly a much more that reason would be speaking to you right now So yeah this is. It might advise to people. It's like just really ready know yourself know you'll reasons for making this decision and speak and make choices from that place and do the work to if you do have that time to start thinking with a clear head and removing alcohol from your life doing the work of like maybe what pains you might have been covered covering up What other tools? I know you mentioned. obviously therapy. You mentioned the Yoga retreat. Are there other things that you started doing to work on yourself to start understanding some of those little tease those little traumas that well I mean I? It admitted to everyone talks about meditation. How beneficial But I think he can be quite misunderstood. A been a regular meditation for over five years now when say regular? I mean like every day without fail every day mono that's something a lot of people struggle with because there's no immediate benefit to meditating necessarily you meditate and felt feel amazing but you can take a drink can feel like oil problems gone away. You don't get that when you meditate light so when I talk about like Meditation as a way to navigate. Not Drinking it's not like meditation is GonNa give you what you were looking for an alcohol but what meditation when it becomes a regular practice and that's what they call it a practice because you practice over time We'll give you is more more slowly slowly in it slow and this is again something which so north east to in our instant gratification culture which alcohol is a positive but slowly slowly slowly. You begin to develop more more space between what you'll sinking mind. Which is the mind. That's kind of constantly trying to process your problems and that will constantly reminding you of your problems in that were constantly making you anxious and nervous and fearful and all the things and this other south which is just kind of like peaceful calm awareness and from that place peaceful calm awareness you cannot. She's only from that place of peaceful calm awareness. Can you start to look at some of the things that causing agitation in your mind? And that's what a therapist does a therapist essentially stands for Bat. Self which could observe just rationally like what's going on and reflect back to you what's going on a few. You consider becoming own in therapist in a way with a regular meditation practice but again it takes time own. This takes time. It makes me ITO. You have to be patient with. That's again it's something was so don't used to. We have to practice being patient. We have these devices that we walk around with what we can literally get whatever we want. Be The address vacation be inflammation be at whatever is like the tap of a button and that's just not up brains and all the thrive on that. We thrive on patients practice. Calm rational thinking that we have to practice one of tips. I read that really resonated with me as you recommended that when people go out and Are trying sober. Curious thing to order dessert. Because half the time. The craving that they're feeling isn't for alcohol that it's for sugar because so many alcoholic drinks are filled with sugar and we're used to that certain amount of sugar and use it order dessert. And just sit in saver and I thought that was such a wonderful recommendation because that's something easily we can do when we're out still sounds fun. That's part of A. We can share desserts with our friends and that kind of thing and I haven't seen a girl's group that doesn't love a desert and it sounds like something. That's kind of fun to do that Most of the time. I think it's important to remember that our cravings may not necessarily be for alcohol itself may be for something else that our bodies used to. Sometimes we need some sleep like having a fifteen twenty minute. Nap can be really good going for a walk. Sometimes which is Kinda applies stocking up. What he's stuck energy's going for a fifteen minute walk could move the craving through yet sugar. What was so interesting. I never had any never had a sweet tooth. Just never really enjoyed sweep things But notice like as soon as I began cutting alcohol out over time I would just like. Oh fantasizing about ice cream. It was pretty interesting and I just decided. I'm just gonNA let myself eat. Whatever sugary things like again like I don't have a particularly. I don't think I have a particularly addictive personality I'm so I was never eating. Like tubs of ice cream. Daphne seen people go the other way bike? People who now replacing a bottle of wine with like a pint of ice cream every night which is always not advisable either not going to make you feel great either that a lot of that was around kind of just removing guilty might have might have found about having that as well again probably a hangover from eating disorder is on just being like actually what. I'm craving is pleasure. Yeah again pleasure or something else that we just own. We have so much guilt about wanting to experience pleasure and I think alcohol is one way we can kind of scratch that issue alike. Feel like we're having a pleasurable experience. When all we're really doing is kind of like numbing-down web doesn't feel pleasurable. You know especially women. That is something I think. Naturally inherently women carry Gilt around any sense of pleasure. I mean we're top that if anyone even like goes to bibles school as a kid. It's like well. Eve wanted that apple. You know what she was easy. It's so true but if you think about it even in sex education classes once you get mentioned it by the female orgasm is just off the table. This is has no biological like the sensitivity. Don't need it yeah. Buddies need to feel pleasure as part of our experience so like you might be craving a massage like they're all so many different ways you can think about giving your body experience a pleasure. Disa- is definitely a really good fun. Yeah who talk about how sober sex is the best sex. And it's so true because when we're hinted alcohol we may remember it being great but then we may also not really remember it or remember parts of it and when you're sober with an awesome partner like there's nothing better exactly on the flipside when you say who is someone that you're not really into. It's really obvious true. Or you might have been able to just kind of like glossed cyber and be like. Oh yeah this is cool. It's fine whatever there's lots of things I do like about you but that but yeah Cybersex main. God it's funny like I said my husband and I we've been together for twenty two years and even like even used to drink together. In the beginning we stopped having drunk sacks after about six months. 'cause it was just like no. That's Kinda lame conradi feeling.

"Settling down or a big lifestyle questions that come up at around that point that sort of mid thirties point that naturally shine a light on how we drinking particularly if as many of us. You Know Weirdly. Didn't drink in college until right at the end of college. But it's because I was in his very abusive and controlling relationship where he basically banned me from drinking. That's a whole other story this summit in the book. When I came out of college it was almost like an actor rebellions him because I broke up with him at the same time and really dove into the drinking culture. And so like most twenty. Somethings I drank quite a lot and binge drank quite a lot and the nuts slowed down. I guess throughout my cheese but yet when he got to a point sort of midst. It's row despite. What am I doing with my life? And what role does this substance and. Also this thug? Not The I kind of when I'm drinking like Who is she really into? She is she who I WANNA be for the rest of my life. You know. I like how you discuss in the book early on about how all of a sudden you have this realization that you were a lot of anxiety around that you were waking up on Monday begrudgingly and is just like this kind of like constant like many hangover. Because it's true when you're in your twenties and drinking you like pop. A few tile on your. This was awesome. Let's do it again. And then all of a sudden you hit your thirties. And you're like God. This is day three of like post bachelor wine night hangover. And how did you some like glasses of wine with my friends completely? Derail my week is something that you came up with like sober curious overnight or was it over. Time was an Aha moment. It was kind of a slow a slow coming realization as to like okay. Yeah I'm feeling a lot of anxiety. Why is this? I've got a really great relationship job. I worked really hard for and I really enjoy. It will be. It was a very high pressure job ahead quite high profile job on a magazine in the UK at the time But why this anxiety all the time? It just seems like my constant. The constant background noise and my life is anxiety. And just a feeling of this ease you know like a feeling of not being at ease in my life like not being able to trust myself to end the decisions that I was making trust myself to be able to perform at the level that I wanted to and it took a why it took awhile. I can't remember like the specifics. 'cause it was a while ago now but slowly sort of became more and more obvious to me that actually during my drinking and even if it was just like two losses of Wina an event was having a huge impact on my overall sense of wellbeing. And that's when I really started questioning what would would. I still be feeling this way. If I didn't drink. Ooh What would it be like not to drink? And Oh wow then. That's it almost immediately. Come in the big questions like what would happen to my social life. What would other people think of me? Like how would I would even be able to quit drinking? And if I die difficulties with that does it mean addicted to alcohol. Does that mean I'm an alcoholic? Should I be in a? Oh my God like these questions died flooding in which all threaded throughout the book but it was one weekend specifically. I got center Covetous Yoga retreat in of all places as a familiar literally pause central Europe. I used to go a couple of times a year with my girlfriends. I even edited a magazine out. That one son like I did a whole summer. Out that By Whatnot Yoga retreat in a visa and it was the first weekend I haven't had any alcohol. Probably for about fifteen years and the way that I felt on that Monday morning. Going into work op- to that was just night and day and there was no longer anymore ignoring the fact that yes the fact. I was thinking a couple of auto bozo wine at the weekend with having huge impact on how I was feeling about myself about my life about my career about everything relief. So then what you decide okay. I'M GONNA kind of explore this sober curious realm and then you know you go to your first girls night with your girls and then you say oh. I'm not gonNA drink and that's that weird feeling. I think that we all fear is you know. Is everyone going to think a? I'm pregnant or that you know I'm boring now or there's so much that goes along with that What was your initial experience like it. Yeah it's such it's like there's no two ways around that it's going to be all quit you say in your book that you gotta get comfortable with being uncomfortable basically and then it becomes quite interesting and quite a cool challenge but those last times. I called him sober. I like the big ones like the first sober wedding or the first sober bachelorette which at times when we're really liked so ingrained into thinking drinking is what we do and I need drinking drinking to excess So yeah it's just a question of really getting clear with myself. Why why I wanted to do this and really placing my own curiosity onus. They like my own. I was the only way I'm GONNA walk. How what? It's like to live as a non drinker is to not drink like. I can't continue drinking and keep expecting to get that question answered. It sounds obvious but it's true they right. You can't know until you don't do it and so I just was like I need to know how it feels so I forced myself into those scenarios. I think probably I think are the best that was a bit of on your drinking that strange but funnel I mean in a way. It's quite good at coincided with me moving to New York. I found myself socializing with a lot of different people anyway when I initially moved to New York style but a lot of friends dates with other experts at the Brits. And that's a very very hard drinking crowds the Brits in New York it's the same in La but it was definitely still right But then on the side of the New People I was meeting I was finding have many different interests. I was reporting more more in the kind of wellness space into level wellness deemed events be that launches but also be at like sound. Bosso Yoga workshops or whatever it was an alcohol just wasn't on the table and through interacting with people at those kinds of events and making us connections in that space. I realized that. Oh there's actually a whole the wealth out. He doesn't revolve around alcohol. And people who actually are interested in connecting in different ways and finding other ways to connect with each other and so that was really helpful In terms of beginning to step away from it more because I didn't like often people will say to be. How long have you been sober? Or how long have you not drunk? I don't really. I don't even have a day count days. It's not like I have a sober anniversary or anything like that. It just was a slow undoing those patents that have become very ingrained over the years and literally. Just kind of like okay tonight. I'm not and then maybe I would and then tonight. I'm not tonight in the next week. I'm not and then three weeks. Go by and I'm like okay. Maybe tonight I'll try some and just really kind of like inching my way in and out until I got to a place now where I just never even think about. Alcohol is just not even a consideration. Pena but in just to be clear there are obviously people in the world's who struggle with addiction and this is not what you're talking about there are people who it's completely different and you talk a lot about it in your book that you did not necessarily You didn't find yourself to be an addict though you questioned it. You separated that and decided that you were addicted to alcohol and you had an addictive behavior to alcohol specifically exactly the language. It's very interesting. I actually did a PO- COST IS GONNA be on my Curious soon with an alcoholic. An addiction expert. Because I really wanted to get clear I was like. When is it addiction? When is alcoholism? When is it dependency? And he didn't even have an answer those tons of so kind of like wishy washy and I think that just speaks to the fact that actually this is a spectrum which talking about of lake thousands of shades of gray and most people who drank will full somewhere on that spectrum. But the part that I'm speaking about on this sobek curious approach is not for someone who is very kind of like deeply addicted end of that spectrum because when there is more of a physical dependency. I mean if someone's drinking every day I didn't know this. Alcohol is the only substance we she die from withdrawal like the withdraw of the so hauch from hardcore physical addiction to alcohol. You can dive amy. Wine House was a case in point right that even heroin you went die from the withdrawal be horrendous painful and difficult but you're not going to die so yeah it's some. I acknowledge that I was a little bit addicted to alcohol but that I was much more down the other end of the spectrum. Right and a lot of the work that you did at that. Time was W- I love how you discuss that the idea of using alcohol to may be cover up bouts of unhappiness in your own life like that you know that someone could be miserable at their job. Monday to Friday and be like. Oh if I can just make it to happy hour on Friday then I can relax finally and if you take away that happy hour and just make it will now. It's Friday and I have to process to my unhappiness from the week that maybe that's when the real work starts and that's it sounds like that taking away alcohol at that time allowed you to work on some of the parts of pain from your past relationship that you briefly discussed and some other traumas of your years before and Could you maybe expand on that a little bit? Yeah absolutely I think that on the analogy that you mentioned disagree powerful one the idea of like if we have this we have this kind of get out of jail free card of alcohol so whenever anything gets too painful or it gets challenging Joke that we really hate is something that a lot of people can identify with you. Have that Friday to forget about it that we can forget about it than you only have to do. Five days in that job but that can be applied to so many different things and I think that Yes for example when I first decided to cut back. My best friend was kind of like but y you. You don't have a problem. You're not drinking because you'RE UNHAPPY. You'll not drinking to have more fun and it really felt like that but it was only when. I started removing. It began to realize that were parts of my psyche..

I believe in October and I just think awareness is important. You know right. We're bringing offer now. Offer doesn't get the the credit that he deserves for guys like Victor Postal because people didn't take the time out to educate you know the boxer fan about victim. Postal and Warrington is a good fighter. He has good wins. He beat Lee Selby.

We never heard of you know he does. I mean he got the muscles. I don't know what that's going to translate into the ring. He's number one in France so that gotta mean something for something fresh foxes but speaking of the topic at hand Claudio Marrero like Mike said is a Dominican. He isn't that grew food though like she's been not dow audio power I mean look I may it hasn't been knocked out before he was the WNBA WNBA regularly and the champ and once he been slept member of member Y'all talking about the Guy Emmett nine bar or member. He GonNa get knocked down this shut up then he came back found a guy was twenty to a one Edouard Ramirez and really put it on really was doing some nice work. I believe if I was on. PBC See I remember watching. It and I like macario woman Monday effect. It's difficult for me. You know Claudio radio he his knockout comes to throw Haas who's the Guy Joseph. DSP Kennex be you know a lot like Abraham. No no no no no Supernova Fordham too but that's that's not him but yeah man like look. I'm not here to knock him. I'm here to report that he is in an eliminator. He's got some pop so we gotta keep our eye on them. You know it's not like he can't get the winning I also. I don't want to say that king tug has been skipped. You know this is the number seven in the number eight going at it for the Eliminator Nater Kid Galahad number seven even after already losing Josh Warrenton in March and Colorado is number eight but king targets number for five and the guy that Josh Warrenton is fighting Sofiane. He's number four so they're they're jumping jumping over King Taku fighter and the I B O Champion. I don't know why but I think I think that for Kid Galahad who's never demonstrated any like overwhelming power. This could end up being a real oh good firefighter because I don't think he could knock out might also monitor with the power and speed because he got that you know he's got good power. Power good speed but guy only has one loss in that was is to Josh Ryan. He does the one thing I think. The Kid Galahad is going to have over morever is definitely the feet I think there he's under the same coaching tutelage as the same trainer as not prisoners seem had he he definitely I saw couple of the rounds with Warrenton Josh Warrenton. He comes out hot. I like the kid man. I'm surprised I never heard from him but I think the feet is definitely going to help him out with Moreau. He moves pretty good. I mean he does. You're pretty good box. I think if he tried to get into like a range light Claudio Moreau don't be motherfucking mistake. I think Claudio has the Bitter Punch selection and I might be favoring equality by just got to see how he how he trained even save on all away in things like that but I don't know man kid Galahad just he he had his chance he'd like like you said I could say. I didn't even know that you could have probably gave him the night it just wasn't overwhelmingly convincing on San so when you go to somebody Heidi backyard and try to fight them on their home turf with their home crowd and we know they gotta home judges. Let's be Real Gada motherfucking do more so what I'm saying I think number number being a PBC fighter motto they might've both been offered this fight man because number are beat motto Absolu- I'm fighting so it doesn't make any sense for him to get jumped over unless he let himself get passed by and for my I mean like like he loses by knockout to susa row house someone the Joseph Diaz by decision then he comes back one round around knocks out Laura then he got twelve around unum is decision lost a number and then comes back to Edward Ramirez and a twelve round unit to manage this. This is so it's like in his last fall. He's two and two man you know what I'm saying. I don't know I don't know how do you get the eliminate a shot over the guy that beat them. I don't know I mean like you said one of them. Guys Partner Damn Clodomiro relationship come to meet you. Dan might not take in on San of letter might get a chance at a world title. Maybe keep tugging the rhythm is GonNa make sure I mean how could he not be ready if he beat my adult. That's what I'm saying. It's like you beat my handle. It'll how some say how you not ready you already I B O chip and you've got the WB from my dad old right but I don't have a a interim wba bell remember he he he kinda struggled struggled struggled but he kind of had against Marino San people without I was going to go in there and just bliss them saying to Raji. He was gonNA motherfucking. BE THE NEXT COMING UP NEW WAY RON super saw. May I remember man I'd go with might add on. He told my Yoda's do guy power and all that show member man we put bets on fucking number and they went to decision unanimous. Yeah unanimous decision that look pot is still a tough tough guy six applet and reassessing those as only twenty seven years old number that thaddeus oh he's not he's not ready but title shot right now might be a little bit too early for maybe a couple of five Dane timeshare so now now. I think it's time for Josh Raritan to unify. He's having a fight. I believe in a few days he's with this guy so fien October twelfth which is obviously the same day. I think that was set up. Isn't that the same day they're this of course fighting a secure. I told me twenty six two weeks later or around I think that should be the setup like I don't know if Chicago is going to want to go straight into a unification.
Alistair Bathgate Alistair, Founder And US discussed on Financial Issues
"Now, let's turn to our next guest and joining us in the studio. We've got blue presumes C E O and founder Alistair Bathgate Alistair, welcome. So we've heard this morning that blue prison is buying Tony for a consideration of up to eighty million pounds of British tech firm. You released your half year earnings this morning as well reporting, a thirty four million pound loss in EBay, da, that said sales, and revenue climbs. Now analysts were expecting as much with Marion global investors saying that blue prism. You're an automation software maker could remain a high growth business for many years. So growth is one thing profitability is another Alistair. When do you expect to become profitable? Well at the moment, we see a vast global market, and we're expanding in a whole range of territories and that requires investment in mocks in an insane. I'm not comes in revenues. So this is a great British global expansion story as you say revenues up by eighty two percent possibly US, revenues doubled. We secure at three hundred forty nine new customers, and which means customer base has gone up by a third in just six months. So this is a rapid growth story. And for the moment, we feel that investing in growth is thing to do, but you have been around for quite some time, and I suppose, that's why the questions although bound for feasibility. I mean I'd love to know what you think is going to help potentially drive the turnaround in profits. Ability, I noticed expanding in new countries. And so how do you. You, how'd you basically turn turn that story around him and you've been around for more than a decade now where we know we have a fundamentally a profitable business model. We were profitable in the year before we I appeared on one of the reasons that we went public with today's funds to grow and to invest ahead of that growth, as you can imagine when you went to a new temporary. Let's say the Middle East where we have recently you have to make investments in marketing and people in sales. People also we have to make investments in product as well ahead of that growth coming back. So that's the story of why and how we invest in right now. Yeah, the acquisition of full Ptolemy announced this morning and tell us the rationale behind that is that because you're concerned that you're not going to be able to achieve that profitability through Ganic growth known of has been a partner since twenty fifteen. The product that Bill is based on technology is built on the platform. So it's a very logical acquisition for us, what they've created as a off an intelligent, automation platform based prison, plus other technologies combined. They've turned into a software as a service cloud, offering based on Microsoft has a not is particularly suited to the mid tier. And so this is a new product for us. Okay. So that's the autonomy acquisition. The is also an issue around. Around short interest in prison. When you look at the amount that you have route edgy mentioned that, that you are. You've run a two thousand two hundred percents. This thing is a huge rise, but short interest in prison has actually climbed above five percent in the past month, what he make that I think, when you were highly wretched stock as you say, the people will bet on some volatility on, you know, you just have to live with that went on building a short term, shot price hair. We're trying to build a business for the long term. Those show interest, though, did reach a record last month. So what would you say to convince those that may be on just simply betting on volatility, but actually have concerns around the stock? What would you have to convince them again back to this issue of the lack of profitability? I would say, look at the graph look at the figures look at the growth in revenues look at the growth in customers these three hundred and forty-nine new customers have valid that toes in the water and we've got so many of our customer base at the early stages of adoption and then look attention on manuals rights renews, extraordinarily high, and then look, up selling a stars, and that have very strong as well. This is an engine built for growth and global growth. And so our choice to invest and go underwater on the line because we think it's going to generate gripe for the future. But some point we can get uptight off on investment, and very quickly, when the company will become a customer from profitable also, very interesting, of course, because your UK gray story, not just a u k one not actually a London based company, but base in the north of England in Warrington tapping into a university of Manchester university. So with that in mind, you're not basis, Silicon Valley, although your tech firm, how'd you see Brexit at this stage? What does that mean in terms of bringing on new people? So proud of you obviously coming from the north west of England monkey union university as where the computer was invented. And so. Yeah. I bullish sorry. Thank you so much for joining us that was pretty prism, CEO, and founder, Alison

Automation could make ports more efficient and EKO friendly, but with fewer people from American public media, this is marketplace tech, I'm Amy Choi in from Ali would. More consumer goods come into the port of Los Angeles than any other US port a plan to use more unmanned, electric vehicles would bring major changes to the port and its surrounding economy, union workers are pushing back hard against automation at a protest this spring, workers held signs. It said robots don't pay taxes, and where will American labor work. But poor donor say that automated technology will cut costs in L A and help California meet its ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gases today. The port is noisy and polluted. A massive system of ships cranes and more than one thousand seven hundred trucks passing through a day. Most of them diesel automation could change that picture. Romi Varghese reporter for Bloomberg news tells us what an automated port of Los Angeles could look like it becomes almost silent when you when you see some of these automated vehicles in action under the plan that's being considered for the port of alleged. A for this one terminal, which is called peer for hundred which is the biggest shipping terminal in North America. By the way, der plan is to have this automated. Straddle carried is one big piece of equipment would basically do the job of three machines. How a lot of nation of the port effect the local economy. I, I know for the port of L A the local community is a is a community of L A called San Pedro. And it's a very blue collar community that has really relied on the ports for its economy, and honestly, deports in general are responsible for much of the economic activity in southern California. It's, it's a huge driver of jobs, both indirect, indirect jobs. I talked to a bar owner and about half her patrons are, are longshoremen, and she's worried. Well, if are fewer of them on going to have to cut back my employee hours. I'm not going to be able to hire bands to calm for nights of the week. And defaults who are promoting automation, are saying, look, we need to say, we need to stay competitive, we are losing market, share to east coast and Gulf Coast ports, because they are more nimble, and our ports are in, in the our ports in, in California just more expensive. So you have this micro aspect to this the micro impact, and then the macro impact, you know, your reporting revealed that there are forty four automated or semi automated ports around the world. But there are only five in the US it seems that that slow have we been slower to adopt this technology? American ports have definitely been slower to adopt this technology and a lot has to do with the power of local unions. And in Asia, a lot of these ports are, are newer, so they're using the most up to date technology, but generally American ports have been lagging. Ng in automation because of the concerns of how this affects local jobs, that was Romi Varghese reporter at Bloomberg news. She notes that LA mayor aarc are said he continues to lead talks between the union and the port. And now for some related links the need to go green in LA Israel public radio station KCRW reported that the Los Angeles and Long Beach metropolitan area was ranked the worst in the nation for ozone pollution for the nineteenth time by the American lung association. Some of the causes cars cars cars, and the ports on the automation, tip the Wall Street Journal, had an article about a new study by MacKenzie saying automation will hit both male and female Labor's equally. It's not just men working in manufacturing who are at risk of losing their jobs. But up to one hundred million women losing their jobs globally by twenty thirty primarily in clerical in customer service, gangs. And while both men and women may lose jobs and equal pay stewed automation women will be less likely to have the opportunity to get the training required for new jobs. And finally, we might not actually be. Ready for all of this automation? We're talking about urban planning scholars surveyed hundred twenty cities in America about their preparedness for self driving cars and only a tiny fraction of them have comprehensive plans for autonomous vehicles. One of them Los Angeles. It has an urban mobility in a digital age plan. That includes ideas about dedicated lanes for Altana, Mus cars municipal fleets of robotic buses, and shuttles and vehicle data sharing relationships, so that the city can manage traffic flow.

Climate intelligence has to come before climate tech
"Does marketplace podcast is brought to you by the university of Florida Warrington college of business transform your future with an MBA from one of America's top ten universities. Learn more at Warrington dot ufl dot EDU slash MBA. And by the Michigan economic Development Corporation Evan. Lyle of rush enterprises is a big fan of Michigan as he put it the future mobility is going to be decided right here in this state. Visit planet dot com to find out why that's P L A N E T M dot com. The first step in adapting to climate change is information from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. This week. We're kicking off our new series. How we survive about the technology of adapting to a changing climate and the first step in adapting is understanding the scope of the problem that is a huge effort involving huge private companies like Microsoft and Google IBM plus startups doing climate risk modeling, but measuring information on the scale of the entire globe is really the job of for lunch. Nasa. Eucalypt supersonic. Earlier this month NASA launched its third orbiting carbon observatory or Osceola three it's a hundred million dollars worth of sensitive measurement instruments attached to the international space station. It monitors carbon dioxide on earth, and how that's impacting weather and climate patterns its tagline is watching the planet breathe and one measure of the planet's health plants and Marie L. During is the project scientist for Osceola three. So this has been important because plants pay a really big role in the natural carbon cycle, the uptake a lot of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere while they're growing, and it goes back in when the leaves fall off indicate so knowing how well the plants are doing their jobs is essential in trying to figure out what's happening with warming. And Osceola three just one part of NASA has annual one point nine billion dollar mission to focus on the earth mostly related to climate. The agency is studying water sea level, natural hazards, the carbon cycle and air, basically, the whole SHA. Bang. Jim graph is deputy director for earth. Science at NASA Jet Propulsion laboratories NASA has a critical role. It's not our role to make policy. It is our role though to provide that when you're making policy that data that you're using is accurate though. It's one thing to start collecting data. It's another thing to keep the machinery working instruments are up there for a long period of time and the instruments where out so we have to have the commitment to make sure that we can replace them with comparable or better instruments as they go forward and to get the best possible data the mission needs to run for years. A lot of what's happening on this earth is not a snapshot. We can't not understand the trends unless we're able to make the measurements over a long period of time back to Anne Marie L during and her plants she says right now when we try to make predictions thirty years out there are several diverging scenarios if plants continue to take up carbon dioxide humans or meeting. And kind of damp in the growth rate that'll end up with one scenario if the plants and the ocean, don't take up as much of the human emissions, our growth rates could increase and will reach a different point in twenty fifty than we would have otherwise. And in order to find that out we need sustained funding for NASA's earth missions and lots of other efforts are going to need money to not just public but also private so tomorrow on the show. We'll hear from investors who believed that adapting to climate change is both necessary for survival and good business. And now for some related links one of the big questions about climate intelligence is absolutely the role of artificial intelligence. If you episode you'll hear from Microsoft about its efforts to apply to modeling and understanding the scope of climate change, and there's a very timely story in the New York Times from Sunday about various artificial intelligence efforts that are being applied to climate adaptation and to recovery from extreme weather events. Also on our website marketplace, tech dot org. There's a link to a story about how in the UK the university of Sheffield help create a connected sewer control system. Look some add up. Tation tech is down and dirty people. That uses a I to detect and manage rising water during extreme weather and flooding, and then it can automate weekly open and close various gates to keep sewers from overflowing. The UK's national environmental agency said that country will have to spend a billion pounds a year on flood management. If it's going to avoid the worst effects of climate change, and that whole neighborhoods might have to relocate because of flooding that's gotten worse in recent years in other climate news this week Ireland became the second country in the world to declare a national climate emergency. Last week. The UK has done the same and New Zealand may follow in the UK that means reducing carbon emissions by eighty percent by twenty fifty. It's less clear what that means in Ireland. But getting back to our point about the money one assumes that funding should be involved. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN.
People in their 20s are injecting face fillers to look like their selfie filters
"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by the university of Florida Warrington college of business transform your future with an MBA from one of America's top ten universities. Learn more at Warrington dot ufl dot EDU slash MBA. People in their twenties and thirties are getting injections to look more like their selfie filters from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Selby's are an art form on social media. But some young people aren't happy with just a Snapchat or Instagram filter. They want the lip cheek and forehead injections. So that their real life faces match the doctor itself fees. The American Academy of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery says there's been a twenty percent increase in botox injections among eighteen to thirty seven year olds in the last five years. Marketplace reporter, Eric embarrassed, it's reporting on this recently. And she told me that the makers of injectable fillers which smooth out the lines on your face like a photo filter. Does are starting to spend a lot more money on social media marketing, our Gan, which is the company that makes boat talks makes Juve Dharam does cool sculpting. That's where they're paying influencers to do a lot of the work. So people are on Instagram anyway, looking at other people's faces all the time. And then they're seeing people that they might follow women that they might look up to. And they're seeing that they also were are actually, you know, talking. About these things, you know, they're like hash tagging Sunday afternoon. Hashtag tocks hashtag filter. Hashtag fillers. You know, the whole thing. Yeah. Tell me more specifically about what people are getting done like what specific procedures than what are people trying to look like. So the most basic thing that most people are getting done is just getting, you know, likable talks injection that kind of freezes your face and kind of makes you look relaxed. But then after that there's a lot of small spas that have opened up that are offering things like institute, which is some stuff that you can get put in your cheeks that give you like sort of a higher cheekbone. You can get your lips done and make them a little bit plumper a lot plumper. There's all kinds of stuff that you can get done. I understand that one woman told you she really has heard of people asking to look more like the filters that they have seen on social media. Right. Yeah. So one woman I spoke with who's Twenty-seven-year-old in Rhode Island. And she says she just gets her lips done. She gets imbo both talks. But it's pretty like normalized amongst her group of friends, and she has a couple. They get a little shot of Duve Derm in the tip of their nose. It makes them look a little bit like that Snapchat filter, and I just thought that was kind of fascinating like the idea that you wanna look like what your online reflection looks like do you have a sense of whether any of the doctors are ethically conflicted about this. Do they resist it at all? Yeah. So I did talk to one doctor who actually is the head of one of the plastic surgery. National plastic surgery associations in Memphis, and he refuses to give anyone any kind of injectable or bow talks unless they medically need it or if they're under a certain age. So he's adamant lead not doing it. But at the same time, he knows that there's like clinics just right up the street that you can just walk into. I think the big part of it is is that because you know, it's it's an elective procedure. It's a lot of money. And so you're budgeting thousand or two thousand a year, you know, it can be hard to say no to that. Erica barris is a reporter with marketplace. Last year. Researchers at the Boston University school of medicine Warren. About what they called Snapchat, Dismore FIA and said, it could lead to body Dismore fic- disorder, a mental illness that causes people to obsess about their imagined defects. And now for some related links head over to our website. Marketplace tech dot org for a link to a longer story that Erica did about this four marketplace and more stories about Snapchat, Dismore, Fiat, and how it has plastic surgeons worry earlier this year doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital published a guide for cosmetic practitioners to help them figure out when they're dealing with someone who is beyond normal discontent with their appearance and onto the obsessive compulsive spectrum that is body this Morphing disorder their research that as many as thirteen percent of people seeking cosmetic surgery have the disorder and in a fun. Fact, I learned that dissatisfaction with your appearance is so common in basically, everyone that researchers call it quote normative discontent. There is a hopeful story from Taylor Laurenz over at the Atlantic though from just a couple of weeks ago about how even though those twenty and thirty somethings or getting the nose injections, look more like their filters. The next generation. Of influencers is actually rejecting the carefully edited super stylized aesthetic, and they're going for a quote, Messier and more unfiltered vibe, the story quotes, a fifteen year old influencers who says that avocado toast and posts on the beach are generic and played out and that it's not cool anymore to be manufactured. So maybe the children really are our future. Unless allergen comes calling with the big check. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

I'm gonna say video conference call and you're gonna say oh from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Livio conference software company is doom goes public on Thursday, promising to make customers happier with their meetings hope springs eternal, right? Most video calls are still full of pauses delays garbled audio and unusable interfaces. Even though we really need this tech right now a Gallup poll last year found that seventy percent of people all over the world work remotely at least once a week. And globalization means a lot more remote offices and bureaus Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. He said videoconferencing tech is still pretty hard in terms of reliable bandwidth and video compression, and then there's just the human factor. People just aren't sure it's worth the trouble. Most people regardless of generation are a bit hesitant in terms of doing a call over video. So it's getting people interested comfortable with the technology and also showing value. So. If you're just doing it to be face to face, that's one thing. But if you leverage the ability to share the screen collaborate in real time, those are all additional benefits that you can bring with videoconferencing that that drives up the value of that video experience. Yeah, it's so interesting because we've been swimming upstream with this technology for so long is it possible that it is actually not the right solution? I think there certainly is a need for this. Because we know that depending on what studies you look at anywhere between about forty and sixty percent of communication is nonverbal. We as humans can both recognize and create almost a quarter of a million facial expressions without that video piece, you're missing out on a huge portion of the conversation by just having audio how much money is there. Do you think for the company that actually gets this technology, right? The whole thing with employee collaboration and putting a dollar amount on it is. Squishy when we'd use video in collaboration way. It's sort of like, well, you know, we saved this money on travel, and maybe we got to market a little bit faster too. And we had fewer meetings and things like that. But it's really hard to put a dollar sign on that, sir. But do we have a sense of how much companies spend just in kind of annual dollars on WebEx and solutions like that? It varies on the size of the organization. I will say that companies today because of this fragmented nature of the collaboration space, particularly related to video a relatively large companies losing about a million dollars a year in lost productivity because of this challenging video conferencing environment in terms of getting the call started on time getting the people into the call. That's very challenging in fact, some companies spend upwards of eight to ten minutes fiddling with buttons and getting people onto calls and that trans. Late into real money. Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. I should say there are high hopes resume in terms of its modern cloud based tech an interface, and as an investment, unlike just about every other tech company going public this year zoom is profitable and has had user growth over one hundred percent each year. And now for some related links zoom full name zoom video communications is planning to raise six hundred twenty six million dollars in its peo-. It's valued at eight point seven billion dollars currently and despite its actual profitability and user growth that's still less than the weeks. Other big IPO Pinterest expected to file on Thursday proposed valuation of ten point six billion dollars Pinter's hopes to raise one point two billion in its public outing. Although it has not yet turned a profit Pinterest. Did recently start showing more of an interest in making money trying to appeal more to advertisers. And adding features like buy button that let you actually shop for the pretty things that you like to stick on your virtual cork board courts has an interesting read this week on Pinterest, quote, frumpy midwestern charm, which is a little condescending. But it writes that the companies skipped the whole move fast. And break things attitude of companies like Facebook or Uber or Google all of whom have of course, been hauled before various authorities as a result Pinterest audience is mostly growing overseas. And is also two-thirds women who find Pinterest. Unlike most of the rest of social media to be a pretty nice place to hang out and dream of living your best life. I actually hadn't been to Pinterest in a while to be honest, but I went and peaked at it today. And apparently, my vision of my best life involves a very elaborate Halloween party.

Your side-hustle maybe paying the bills and giving you lots of free time. But the tax man is always watching from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Depending on which research you read somewhere between thirty and thirty five percent of American workers are part of the gig economy, many of them employed through digital apps or as tax professionals, put it their self employed. And that means they're responsible for their own taxes. So come Monday when tax filings are do some of these independent contractors are in for a rude awakening. Amy wall is a tax preparer based in Tucson, we've talked to her before about the impact of the gig economy on taxes, the problem with this gig stuff. It's typically people who they haven't done it before we're still seeing newbies. Well, anytime they have self employment income of more than four hundred dollars. They're required to file a schedule. C and there'd been a start paying self employment tax on it, and yeah, they're they're surprised. I can imagine. If I were just a person who had an Airbnb or I wear a person who drove lift and you start saying to me. Schedule C and self employment tax, we're like on different universes. Absolutely now, Airbnb is actually is not subject to self employment tax unless and until they start providing a service once they start providing like breakfast or pick you up from the airport or whatever they're now providing services in the world of the IRS now, it's a business if they're not providing services, it's just rental income, and it is not subject to self employment tax. So it's an important distinction. Yeah. Right on down telling people don't serve breakfast makes them got thrown breakfast. But something like Uber. Absolutely. That is self-employed income they're providing a service they're getting ten ninety nine from the parent company that tendon and nine is going to the IRS it has to be on the tax return or they're going to get a not very friendly letter. A couple of months later saying, where's this income? How much these companies doing to set these workers up for success? Do you think is this part of the you know, starter packet what you? Should do about your taxes? I have not seen companies doing that Airbnb actually does have an entire brochure that they make available to explain how to do taxes. Now. Uber lift are these days at least providing the number of miles driven which is a big help in the early days. We were having to ask people. So how many miles did you drive, and they look at us like, you know, what I mean, if you're driving Uber lift your you are using your vehicle, so any miles are deductible at the standard mileage, right which changes from your ear. What would you like to see companies provide like if you could write them some best practices about what they should be telling these independent contractors as they come on? What would that would be wonderful is if they could provide periodic reports that say, you're self employment tax on this amount of income is X. Now, of course, they can't calculate it. Exactly. Because they're not calculating the expenses the cellphone and all that. But they could surely calculated on the growth that would be nice at least people would not be surprised when they come to their tax prepares office. Amy wall is a tax preparer based in. John we like to check in with her on taxes and the digital economy. Not everyone in the gig economy is doing a great job dealing with the taxes. They owe February audit by the treasury department found that the tax gap for self employed workers that is the amount they owe and aren't paying is almost seventy billion dollars. And now for some related links. There's been lots of talk about how now that lift has gone public and Uber is expected to do the same along with Airbnb. Suddenly, lots more people and financial institutions are going to be literally invested in a business model that relies on really reclassifying labor tech companies in particular have become known for using lots of contract workers instead of fulltime employees. And of course, building these entire armies of on demand drivers and delivery people who also are not technically employee's, economists and labor experts say we're going to have to figure out a safety net for these workers, whether it's shared benefit pools, future unions or just some rules. You'll find some stories about those rules proposed and otherwise on our website marketplace, tech dot org and speaking of taxes real quick, I host this other podcasts called me smart with resolve. And we recently did an episode about taxes where we talked about how despite our technological advance. Dances. And how in many other countries the government just adds up your tax location, and sends you a Bill here in the United States. Big tax filing companies have lobbied for years for that not to happen. And in fact, just this week propublica reports that a bipartisan Bill is making its way through congress right now that would permanently bar the IRS from setting up an online system of tax filing that would be free for anyone to use on a related note last year into it, which makes turbo tax and h and R Block spent about six point six million dollars lobbying congress on various issues, including and mostly this IRS Bill.

But that doesn't mean it's reliable storage from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Just in the past few weeks the social network Google, plus shutdown taking all its archives with it, including the profile pages of Google, founders removing access to insights about the company's history and previous decisions Facebook said it quote, mistakenly deleted posts by CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. But it also changed how it archives corporate announcements and blog posts in a way that makes them harder to find. And my space accidentally lost twelve years of posts from its users, including their estimated fifty million original songs Jason Scott is an archivist with the internet archive, a nonprofit digital library, which managed to recover a tiny fraction of those songs. So basically my space which was one of the largest sites of the two thousands, always encouraged people to upload, videos and music and photos, and then it turned out. Last year during a migration they lost everything that was older than about three or four years. And there's estimates going around of something like fifty million songs and the internet archive was handed from an academic group. A USB drive worth of songs so about five hundred and forty thousand songs which had been done as part of a academic study on music networks back in two thousand ten and that's the only reason we have this music. It's not anywhere near a full recovery. I wish it was. Wow. So how common is it for these private companies? Like, my space our Facebook or Google to either accidentally or intentionally lose information. So the accidental will always get a headline. And luckily that doesn't happen as much as it might have done years ago but intentional where they hit the end of a product's life cycle. We're in the situation right now where people have a lot of data that means something to them. And they're getting very surprised a lot, right? And this sort of raises this sir, fundamental question. Which is are there any rules? Are there any laws or regulations about what companies have to hold onto? And then any recourse, if they don't generally know, there's certainly a lot of laws around health information due to hip, but we don't do that for other data. And so I'm very much thinking of this as a tenant landlord situation that there are responsibilities that really should be in their if their housing your data because they are certainly benefiting from it. Right. It sounds like you're really saying that preservation and archiving should be part of the kind of larger data conversation that we're having right now. Like, should that be part of the GDP are or any version of regulations like that that might come to the US don't think it's unrealistic to say that like X? Sport the ability to pull out data the ability to be notified and have it held for a certain period of time after shutdown that this should be part of the online experience. Let me offer though, the kind of alternate via which is you know, what is it something like ninety percent of all of the data in the world's been created in the last twenty years and data centers are increasingly gigantic and consume tons and tons of energy and represent a real threat to the climate. Is there also a conversation that we need to be having about data expiration? So I would say that it's an interesting argument to argue about the environmentals, but you look at something like bitcoin, which nobody knew about years ago. And now suddenly takes up such a percentage of energy. And I think we're going to continue to see waves of that it's in companies interests to make data hosting data retrieval and everything else. Be as inexpensive as. Possible. And there's money to be made. I could definitely see an argument that people generate too much data, and that we end up with a lot of data. But I think that choice should be yours. Not something you read about in a tweet, you know, the next day because something went quote, unquote wrong. So I definitely think there's something to be argued there. But it's the problem here is just one of they are efficiently or inefficiently losing the data of users who have no say and no knowledge of what they're doing in terms of keeping access to their own data. So then just sort of simply put for consumers out there. How reliable is the digital record? The digital record is very reliable until it isn't. Like it lets you have enormous amounts of reach easy copying easy access easy sharing. But when things go wrong, they will go wrong utterly you can recover. A burned book, you can't recover. A literally dead disc that doesn't work at all without spending an amount of money that nobody would spend. And so we have kind of the best of times in the worst times right now. And I think that people should just be aware that if something matters to them that in some ways, they need to be the caretaker Jason Scott is an archivist with the internet archive. He told us the archive had been trying to preserve the public posts from Google plus before it shut down, and that it proved to be over a pedal bite of data or a million gigabytes. So I guess some people use it after all.

This is marketplace tech. I'm Tracey Samuelson in for Molly would. If you're a government day, the Chinese government looking to spur more innovation in your country. How do you do that you can think of innovation as a ladder of sorts? It might start with imitation. And then progressed you adaptation like tweaking a foreign idea to develop it for a local market. Finally, hopefully, you reach invention, perhaps even big industry changing ones. But the steps needed to climb that ladder can be elusive murky, and there's only so much governments can do says Regina abroa- me a professor at the university of Pennsylvania's Wharton school of business. I talked to her about China's efforts at state-sponsored innovation. It's something country. Can't cause to happen. It has to happen at a much more micro level, which is gonna what's the form of business organization in your country. Is it a collaborative is it a hierarchical places their scope for collaboration? What's the the nature of your education system? Are you teaching children to be problem solvers or are you rewarding? What are you? Awarding them for are you rewarding them for getting the answer's right or you're rewarding them for seeing something that you did wrong. But you know, I think we've I think we're at a point now where anyone who thinks that it's just about plopping cluster together meaning to say and China has lots of these right? Let's let's have one university in the next. Let's put a little tech park and extra. Let's do this other thing and magic show happen. It doesn't always work then then last, but not least. And this is not a trivial point you need a legal system where intellectual property is protected, right? Which is a chief US complaint about operating in China Raina, right? But it's not just us firms Chinese firms themselves also want to make sure that their IP is protected. It's interesting because the communist party's main in China twenty twenty five planets received a lot of attention recently for its attempts to you know, pick and develop specific Chinese industries is that type of industrial policy successful in fostering innovation. I think it's successful in fostering market leadership. Perhaps even market domination of a given sector within the Chinese context. And also potentially allowing for firms to compete in a way that gives them an advantage in the global marketplace. So it's not necessarily the case that industrial policy equals innovation policy. Yeah. So this idea of like, creative add patient versus a truly innovative breakthrough. But at a patient, you know is innovation. I mean, you know, as at the end of the day, this sort of hacking and making it work is a kind of innovation right? And certainly if we look at Chinese companies and their ability to sort of really target mid range markets, and how successful they've been in that space. It has been because they've been able to sort of make that those those adaptations that are targeted to our particular customer. They're trying to sell to. So it's it's not that China made in twenty twenty five has not succeeded in many ways it has. But that in an insane China the leading innovator in the world today. I think that we have to be a little bit more cautious on that front. Regina balmy at the Wharton school of business. Professor Rami made an important distinction. She said this isn't about the capacity of the Chinese people to be innovative. It's about the context and system they have to innovate within. Now for some related links. Professor brownie wrote an article called why China can't innovate in the Harvard. Business review back in two thousand fourteen much of that still applies today this China Morning Post had a couple of recent articles on China's intellectual property articles how they could be strengthened to meet US demands in the ongoing trade war and foster innovation the number of intellectual property rights cases in China increased more than forty percent last year and finally on the theme of creative thinking, there's this quantum magazine story from two thousand seventeen I just keep going back to it's about a retired statistician who solved a math proof others had struggled with for more than fifty years. He had the idea while brushing his teeth. I love stories of late bloomers. They give me hope. I'm Tracey Samuelson. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

There's a new electric SUV being developed by a charismatic visionary whose name dozen rhyme with tusk from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed Kim in from Ali would. Hot on the heels of Tesla's model. Why announcement comes the news that carmaker fisker Inc? Also wants to make an electric SUV at about the same price celebrated sports car designer Henrik fisker started his own luxury electric vehicle company in two thousand seven for awhile. It even seemed he had the edge over rival tesla. Then came prediction of the karma in two thousand eleven the one hundred thousand dollar plug in sports car was widely panned and barely sold. It would take a whole lot going right for the fisker Inc. SUV announcement to Mark any kind of real turnaround. Chelsea Sexton is an electric vehicle industry advisor and advocate. She caught us up on the company's rocky history. Dan's it up going bankrupt and the assets for bought for a fraction of their value by Chinese firm who has reinstated the company as karma while fisker remained. His name now is trying again promising a forty thousand. Dollar SUV with three hundred miles of range inside of two years with a not very large company to begin with zero details about who is using for his technological or propulsion support and no manufacturing plant. So I think I'm probably not one of the only ones that's a little bit skeptical on the promise. What do you think he's making the move to an SUV? I think he's trying to raise money. I mean, generally speaking when we see these big bold promises from any of the startups, and there are many now and fisker is still a relative startup. It's usually an attempt to garner media attention and therefore raise funding, and it takes on average. Well, over a billion dollars to launch a car SUV is a means to an end. What is the end that? He's tried to leverage. What's interesting is that he is doing the reverse model of tesla and everyone else or is now claiming to where originally and what most do is start with a higher end vehicle and try to work their way down into something. That's economically affordable and the higher end vehicles produce more profit and therefore fund the next one down the chain just like roadster, and then model S an axe and now down to model three he's now saying he's going to hold off on the premium car and till after he delivers this affordable SUV and go the opposite direction that remains to be seen. And if he can deliver either one of them in any volume, and certainly take care of the after service and after-sales kinds of of needs that always get overlooked. So his endgame ultimately has to be credibility, his his lost most of that in the last several years in terms of being an actual automotive producer, or you know, CEO of a car company. He's still is a pretty designer. That's never really been in question. But whether or not he will ever be more than that is something he's still has to earn. Chelsea Sexton is an electric vehicle industry advisor and advocate note for his part, Hendrick fisker points out in an interview with Bloomberg that he has delivered a commercially produced plug in vehicle and learn first hand plenty of lessons to apply to his next project. That's not something many others can claim. And now for some related links fisker have been promising a hot new vehicle for a while now. But it was originally going to be a sleek sporty sedan the emotion we've known since September. That's he flagship vehicle would have to wait. That's when Henrik fisker told clean Technica Avia available at the lower forty thousand dollar price point would come. I just didn't say it wasn't SUV. He also talked about the solid state battery. He says the company is developing as their other main focus the battery would replace lithium ion technology, solid state batteries are at holy grail of sorts for e vs promising driving ranges way beyond three hundred miles and charging up in a matter of minutes. This ings batteries were originally scheduled for next year. But green car reports says it's looking more like twenty twenty two at the earliest fisker said in an E mail to those reporters initial timelines have always been targets targets not promises.

There's something it calls its innovation arm and DWA labs. It's bringing financial tech to domestic workers. It's new platform called Leah directs digital payments towards benefits for housecleaners. Marketplace's Lila Goldstein talked with one user about the platform, alleviate Mahia is a house cleaner in Brooklyn. Her son David is in the third grade and has a lot of school trips in always always he won. I can go with him. It used to be saying, yes, meant losing income. But last year, she went with her son's class to the prospect park zoo and still got paid thanks to a platform called Leah. It helps gig workers like her earned benefits.

It's money clients have contributed specifically for benefits clients select the client option find their house cleaners account and choose whether to give the platform recommends five dollars per cleaning this money can only be used for benefits offered by Leah then go toward or contracts. Didn't they eat thing goals will they be their Mahy is taken out life insurance and accident insurance. She also took to pay days off. Here's how bad stun when a worker reaches one hundred twenty dollars on a Lia. They can trade it in for a prepaid visa card like a lot of financial tech tools. Elliott automates something that can be complicated for workers to do on their own longtime workers advocate Pollock Shah helped develop the Elliott platform. What technology is really doing is in neighboring all. All of these multiple parties coordinating them taking all this transactions.

She just text them notamment them excluding this. They huddle Yemi Leoneto soda. She gets a key. And they leave her money on the table at first Mahia was a bit embarrassed to leave fliers inviting her clients to use a Leah.

The Goldstein brought us that story alita currently doesn't offer some really important benefits. No health insurance, no retirement plan. But as the gig economy grows. More workers will be looking for alternative ways to get the benefits. They need. And now for some related links. You may remember that Uber recently settled with drivers in California and Massachusetts for twenty million dollars. The lawsuit raises the question of whether drivers are fully employed as or just contractors the agreement won't end that debate. But it does that an average of about twenty two hundred dollars per driver. In those states NBC reports that the settlement amount is pretty favorable for Uber, which is trying to sign up. Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware. The wrath of the rideshare driver though. More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber. There've been several other settlements for the company, but none that would seem to break the Bank after all we're is expecting to be valued at one hundred twenty billion dollars. I'm jed Kim.

What might help Apple sell more iPhones? Cheaper iPhones

Visit WWW dot Lenovo dot com slash S M B powered by Intel. Hey, you know, what might help apple sell more phones cheaper iphones from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Apple released its earnings yesterday afternoon. And although it met its lowered expectations revenue from phones was down. Fifteen percent over the same quarter last year and the future trend is also down for years. Apple smartphone strategy has been to make premium devices with a premium price tag, a thousand bucks is basically the starting price for a new flagship iphone, but those prices are hard to swallow in China and India markets apple is depending on to grow. It's global market share. And even here in the US consumers just aren't upgrading their phones as much as they used to duly. Ask is principal analyst at Forrester research. I asked her if apple can keep commanding such high prices, they've relied on a very fluid base of consumers in the past that could afford to buy not only devices, but services and subscriptions within the ecosystem. And I think one of the things it's hard to tell. I think one of the things they're not gonna tell us is it inhibiting their ability to attract new consumers into the ecosystem. Yeah. It's interesting because it feels like. It was a strategy based on sort of an old economic model of ongoing recovery where you know, if you tie it to the broader economy, it was based on the idea that there'd be an economic recovery in wages would continue to go up and there'd be lots of consumer spending. And we're kind of not seeing that. Yeah. So we're not seeing that. And I think if you look at the opportunities for growth, it's either get the same people to upgrade faster or it's attract new consumers into your market. And you look at who those new consumers are and they're simply not as a flu inter as wealthy as the existing base there. Either young or they're living in markets where there's lower wages overall. I think the trouble with these large. Consumer electronics companies is is the smartphone came along at this time. And it's been like an amazing amazing ten to fifteen year right at this point. But there isn't like another it devices that's coming after it. That's going to make up for the revenue with the slower replacement cycles and the slower uptake from consumers in the market today. So what do you think comes next? I mean, some manufacturers are sort of bucking this trend. Oneplus is going with a cheaper phone is that overly simplistic as an answer or would cheaper phones. Help sell more phones if I were smartphone manufacturer, I would test the market with less expensive devices. And Molly I say that based on someone who studies consumer behavior the devices that are selling now in the market for a thousand dollars eleven hundred twelve hundred dollars are amazing for photography and playing video games and watching TV and when we see five G come out. It's going to be awesome. That said the vast majority of the activity that consumers are doing on these phones, it's still around communication instant messaging, texting my friends triaging, Email for work. And I don't need the latest greatest device to do that. And so I think it is reasonable to expect the consumers will say, hey, how do I really use this device, and do I really need something that caused the thousand twelve hundred dollars to triage, my Email, duly ask is principal analyst at poster research. Ch- according to the motley fool apple shipments were down ten percent in China in the third quarter of last year and down fifty percent in India over twenty eighteen. And now for some related links. We talk a lot about the Chinese market. But India is huge for smartphone makers shipments almost doubled between two thousand fourteen and twenty eighteen to one hundred and fifty million phones according to analysts and ZD net report out of New Delhi says that for a few years apple was selling its older models in India for low prices, which wasn't that thrilling because we're talking about the iphone five c here people. But then apple started pushing more expensive bones sometimes even selling models for more than they were selling for in the US that didn't fly either. And it happened just as Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi and one plus came into India with super cool tricked out smartphones that were half the price of the iphone. So you could have a heck of old iphone for the same price as brand new flagship smartphone from one plus easy choice. The one plastics was released in India in twenty. Eighteen ziti net. Says its old a million units in twenty two days for comparison apple sold one point seven million units in India in all of twenty eighteen combined and on a completely different note. I totally missed that earlier this month the department of defense released a document about a twenty two million dollar program by the Defense Intelligence Agency. That was researching warp drives invisibility cloaks wormholes star gates an alien tracking. I mean say what you want about government spending. But this is how we got the internet.
