I think is been a there's been a connection that people have made through this pandemic and I always a big believer. The adversity says a lot you know, says a lot about tennis. Pledges says a lot about people I have to admit I had a brilliant. Brilliant team over the last few weeks you know. I sometimes get some of the praise for the initiatives, but there's a law. Grad people behind me that doing the work and work and extremely hard, while so feel very fortunate and feel feel very connected to my team and brought us closer together, and you know like like you said I.

Her Hospital shallots Nick Medical Center in Jerusalem. She worked day and night, following strict isolation protocols that meant among other things wearing full protective gear in ministering care via video intercon's.

One of them was eighty eight year old Alliott Evan who on March Twentieth Twenty Twenty, sadly became Israel's first covert casualty of at home shallots.

Traditionally when a Jew dies, there's a series of rituals including washing the body that take place, but hunter the now with covert. Everything would be different missile heavily. The Ministry of Health has prepared us with instructions on how to deal with disease covid nineteen patients. We are the first hospital in Israel to implement this protocol. Similar to casualties of biological warfare, our treatment of the body needs to be done in a way that will not endanger us. Because of this there can be no purification or Tahara process.

You survived the horrors of the Holocaust immigrated to Israel. Established DEMOC deficit family, and your extraordinary journey ends here in this new word. We hoped we would never have to open. The circumstances of your hospitalization did not allow for your loving family and caretaker to be by your side for us in them. This was heartbreaking from the outside monitored you as closely as we could. We were an off as we watch the other patients care for you, keep you company and help you. However they could. They did not want you to ever feel. Are Yet, I wanna ask you for forgiveness. I'm sorry for how we were required to handle your body. We did our best to preserve your dignity and respect you based on the circumstances I know that it was done to protect us. It was a tremendous food and honor to care for you.

Personally the pressure and anxiety are quickly building up and it's nothing short of overwhelming. In the span of two weeks, the number of patients in my unit has quadrupled and keeps growing the everyday experiences in the word taking an emotional toll on me. On Friday, a daughter of a critical patient walks into our operations headquarters. Since no family member can go inside the unit. She has come to say goodbye to her L. Father through the video intercom system. She asked me to hold her phone and record their interaction. As I watched her cry and talked her father through a screen I have to physically turn my head to hold back tears. This is heart wrenching to watch I cannot even begin to imagine what it's like for them. At six thirty PM with thirty minutes left until the end of May shift. I'm rushing to finish my last tasks inside the unit. At this point, the moderate patients have all congregated in the middle of the word to do Tabet. I soon realized it's the only permissible Mignon in Jerusalem right now people from all walks of life and across the religious spectrum are singing and rejoicing together as bring in. I!

Trump’s executive order could be a disaster for thwarting misinformation

"You Michel Cinder. Let's look ahead to today. I know the president is working on some sort of executive order pertaining to social media. Again more distractions. What are you watching? That's what I'm watching as we have this conversation. It's the door conversation about that. Death toll one hundred thousand Americans were more actually dying from this virus. The president is focused on pushing back on social media companies. It's comes of course. After twitter changed its policies to start trying to explain to people that are on the site that some of the president's tweets are not are misleading. Including of course labeling some of those tweets misleading in China provide information including on mail in voting the site saying that President Trump is spreading information on that. The president is expected to sign some sort of executive order. That would push back on them. It seems like it's going to be some sort of regulation possibly stripping them of some some sort of protections that they have a social media companies. It's not clear exactly. The White House hasn't said exactly what the president's going to be timing what we do know that this is going to be in retaliation to what he sees as twitter really targeting him and treating him unfairly. So it's in some ways another split screen where you have the nation still thinking about one hundred thousand and more Americans that we've lost and the president focused on opponents that he sees focused on his perceived enemies and focused on what he seizes liberal people trying to get out. And when of course this is really a social media company trying to respond to the overwhelming criticism of the president who has at times spread misinformation on his website. And of course this comes as the witter of of a woman of course. The president had said over and over again was murdered. Which of course is a baseless claim. Laurie close so I think in some ways. I think it's really it's really historic but it's also really. It's it's incredible that the president is going to be spending part of his time trying to hit back at twitter. I'm what is spreading baseless murder conspiracy theories? Well it's a distraction make. It's all a distraction. It's still and again against you but you have to look you have to step back and you have to look at when this began and the really outrageous stuff began as we were moving towards that Sunday front page New York Times Article. That showed that one hundred thousand. Americans we're going to be dead from the coronavirus and so now it's morph into fights with cable news hosts Al Sad that and and twitter And as long as he can get people talking about that being shocked and stunned and deeply said about that. They're not going to be focusing. On the fact that one hundred thousand people died of a pandemic that he said was just one person coming in from China. But I'm seeing a lot of people even trump supporters who see this as basically as they see the coronavirus they see this president endangering their lives not leading by example pushing quack drugs. That don't that actually are dangerous. That help other people in other ways but are dangerous in terms of treating corona virus. They see that it's basic it impacts their basic safety. Well when they watch him talking about this conspiracy theory in the light of the husband asking him to stop in the lot of grieving family begging for mercy and begging him to stop and they see him running over that request. That's as basic to them as it pertains to decency. I think there are a lot of trump supporters. I've been seen and reading. That are just like no. This is the bottom of the barrel of the core of who you are and we can't support this. So that is that is grieving family. Obviously but Willie you grieving family. That just does not deserve this. There are other one hundred thousand. Grieving families Today and we also should talk about the president ridiculing. People for wearing masks ridiculing Joe Biden a public figure for wearing a mask for following actually the guidelines of the White House following the guidelines to Dr Foul chief following the guidelines of the for following the guidelines of just about every doctrine America and mocking members of the press.

"Caught a lot of his friends. He's a writer a not convinced by Lauryn hill and find that album. I mean at the time of release in the wake of its release to be sought focus which is which is really interesting because it was still has a very high reputation. Another place I might. Just mentioned is just a lovely lovely piece by Carol clock which is essentially bit Sherry for a tribute to the Great Jerry. Remind it's just a great piece really informed by personal experiences with Joey another punks and she talks to a lot of the punks like rat scabies. Who adored the reminder infants other minds and look? I mean a million pieces written by the months. Sometimes you when which reminds one extrordinary. Staw Anti Stall Jerry remind wars and I'm just fundamentally decent human being and I met him a couple of times in I just love this guy. He was so sweet. I desire most decent rebutting the law. I know how difficult the bit noise and an Johnny Ramone was close to. Actual Rosen is a political exactly. Yeah just go for a couple of quick things. Three things to mention first of which is our first piece on the Neil Kelly trail which I added trying to give a shoutout to VAT. He's jazz pianist but he's also played with the brand new heavies adult. So he he when he does his own stuff. It's jobs but he also plays you know. Popping Raucous kind of keyboards makes his money playing for Adele. Yeah I imagine so. I'd hope so anyway but actually quite an interesting sort of modern jazz trio pianist along the vein of the band plus and Gogo Penguin and bands. Like that. Where it's quite. It's not sort of that. There are no lengthy improvised. Solos or anything like that. It's it's quite tight and I mean progressive might give you sort of impression of something you would want to listen to but actually I think of is really interesting quite angular. And he's playing the Clintons with review by David Sinclair and what David's interest. Is They use pop and rock structures in a jazz context to bring out the best of both worlds especially on the choppy groove of hug. The Greyhound passengers a lot so I do think there's some interesting. Naw Contemporary Jazz Group. You can't hug a greyhound to sorts of vigorously that kind you. They're very very skinny. You can hug a labrador or Econ give Greyhound a very very very affectionate. You'd get breakfast. Noting don't get bruised and decided to take off for run. It probably kicking very hard in the face probably. Yeah I love. We analyzed. That took the whippet. But it's not called widgets. Small greyhounds remember that very versatile session. You couldn't hug a greyhound in hug a whippet as to to vigorously sorry about that tangent and that was this week's episode of of the Rocks Back Pages. Dogs CAST sponsored by. Cross next up is overview of a vampire a closer look at the weekends lyrics now. This is interesting because the weekend is a pretty massive. Staw and this is Joan calvet writing in the John. Calvin is a quote guilt. Ridden ultra fan of misogynists Canadian. Rb Style the weekend here. Instead of brushing the theme music under the carpet or tending to explain ways theatre. He takes forensic look his lyrical content. Now I think that'd be an interesting goal. Although it doesn't up being sort of like he might misogynist. It might be theater. But then I'm just GONNA analyze lyrics for awhile without really coming I. I'm so excited. Uncomfortable with with the weekends Zurich's because there's a lot of violence and misogyny in them and I think that his claim that it sort of he's just playing a role is a little bit of a cheap get out but I mean it's quite long essay on the lyrics and it does. It does go into what he's saying. What is represented in these sort of a self hating rb star? Who played on his early stuff? I mean when he started getting really. Massive hits definitely sanitized a bit but the early trilogy of Mix Tape School the House of balloons trilogy. And there's some really disturbing stuff I mean sonically. It's quite interesting but listening to it now. It's quite uncomfortable as well so I think that's an interesting piece exploring those dimensions of it. And whether or not it's possible to another journalist saying aren't made from the point of view of villains and monsters compelling loving it does not equal condoning horrific behavior which is a sort of a tricky debate. And one that we've talked about before but that does come a point when if you are supporting someone who's making really violent claims and then music that has a sort of it can be bit tricky. Why does he smell the weekend? With any to ease. Its Edgy vowels. I think right on so I don't know movies music. Well no I like that record about. Not being able to feel his face.

And that if it's `electronic it somehow else official was `electronic waves and sound however you produce some Incredibly motion persona narrow used as an example of that Fingers Inc. Track can fail it which has no words but is like a religious gospel thing and electric's it. Sir As the idea that the motion old Elettronica cold or else officials is just plain wrong. I mean it's a win-win it's isn't very pleased that you're running my directors. Cover that ask because I wrote four thousand words. Milovan my jostle and the full House as they did. Was Ralph Hudson. Basically cut all my ideas advocate to make way for just interview which I was quite annoyed with at the time. I love the fact that this now world in its proper version splendid token floor. And just a little bit. He essentially he left. The group was there is your take on. It was some kind of falling out or estrangement Ronaldson Lawrence communicates very often off. I'VE AENEAS I did actually ask about this off three left. His version of it was simply. That was just yesterday that I had bally's since then which is depressing Seminal Society is the rouse take on. It was simply that he really started enjoying going out and playing live every year and flora just didn't he didn't see the point of playing live will time and they did go after coming back into the live. Reno they did actually put on you know. Thousands of shows each year. They went rare in that sense. And he just got old enough to two thousand and eight while you carry on without me but as flora on was a conceptualist with Ralph. He also believed absolutely from the beginning that they weren't Kroft across. That was an idea that would actually mystified by the sort of celebrity interest in them. Calls early heightened times by the fact that you know It's unlike prints if you don't talk to people people become much more interested but they just didn't understand why people wanted to know what they got to. It's not a basset us. That again was slightly ahead of its time in the sense that when they came out culture personality was enormous and they were all the full shadow that Yet twelve years later when we really did badly-needed Yasser ended and care. I mean the great thing is they all now revered on the same level you might almost site as miles Davis Jimi Hendrix to Bob Dylan David Bowie in their field. In terms of what? They didn't how they changed music. In the way you described so well son they on now and it's not just a of fanatics who would cite the. I think most of US appreciate that. These guys culturally musically with joins absolutely and the loss crosswalk thing. I did was an hour. Long documentary to the European lots channel offset which Ronald BBC vocal? Wet Pop us and I had a very long amusing fan boy conversation with molly for that which ended up cop down to about half an hour in the program which a lot of people complained about. The length of it was actually. You could see data turning tonight in the background. I suppose read lots of schools appropriately place to talk to me which I said I made him look good which was already kind. But he's brilliant and his point which he might which a lot of people got caught. Noida about was the teams concerned that was influential as the Beatles get a argued that very convincingly of course a lot of people I read about it. Yeah and Bowie said he was have the Crawford were. His favorite group was a huge influence on. I mean they to Schneider. Long Heroes is is Laura. My Point African American music because they changed the sound of dance music. You know this right across the board you listen to Eddie. Sleazy any techno cross record of that stuff that is club music. Wherever you go in the world you go into your hearing. Something actually derives very dark. I'd like to come back to Bonnie's point about how he was central to cross. What breaking because Crawford actually a lot of the early critics so very distant understand material MMA in some points frankly xenophobic. He took them to his breasts trillion when they met him. When was touring in the seventies Germany? He was driving around in a Mercedes playing to bond all adult. I wanted to meet them. He then stolen they on lighting his stage two and they have this evening but most importantly to them he have very has a. He has a face. Like he'll be talking about pixies or near the time in the mid Seventies. He was talking about Crawford all the time when the press hung on every word like tablets of stone for business so they benefited enormously from him banging on about yes and said the Bony Crawford. Connections is very significant. And I just love the first time I ever had trans Europe express one of my absolute favorite Crawford trice when they meet Iggy pop and David Bowie. It's so cool..

"witter" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology

"What has died aged seventy three and joining us to talk about the almost unparalleled infants that German Greek is all be contributor and Carter expert Simon Witter Welcome. Hi Welcome Bonian. And they'll act great. Thanks for calling all the papal rope section. At the fact it's great to see Simon. Can you sum up in one? Short eight and Pithy Hargrove exactly why crosswalk were so important and are so important. That's incredibly digital's pithy paragraph. Put you on the spot. Yeah well basically. They started with a blank canvas. After the second ball woven German culture had not existed for twenty years. Abbas shame and sort of reinvented music. Have to take from anywhere else. We're GONNA start singing and gentleman which Nolan no young people did and they what they imagined sounds that didn't exist yet to MS instruments and went to a lot of the computer companies in the Rhineland area where they were and ask people what they're working on very dry mathematical things to come up with instruments so they effectively created an entire sound that no one else could do because as instruments didn't exist then also discover the an idea what sort of job in folk music that was based on environmental sounds. Germany of the motorways of the factories that had all sorts of earlier influences from the reminds governor as well but they liked very much to get inspired just by listening to things around them that weren't records and their influence is basically by the time they had perfected what they were doing in the late seventy s. I would say the perfect album is man machine in seventy eight which is almost perfect in every way and sounded like a window to the future. Yeah Yeah and it had an amazing cover which animal shelter done based on Russian constructivism and everything. They did was informed by huge network of Ideas. But if you understood none of that matter it just looked and sounded extraordinary so one of the three pieces. We're GONNA fate you're on the homepage Simon. This week is your epic twenty. Five retrospect to some other which I mean I have to say I read. It is just absolutely superb. I think if anyone's listening on the radio won't understand why cross what was so great so important read this pace and it is the director's cut version. It's mainly artist sexually. It's based on interview with Ralph Hooda. Who CO-FOUNDED CRAWFORD with floor in about those two men and the difference between them and know what might Florence special well. I should say festival that I met. How many times but Florio never. Because he'd already decided ten years before I talked to them that he had enough of interviews. And if you're saying there's an epic terrible Brazilian TV interview from Nineteen Ninety on Youtube of asinine. Woman has to get something out of him with joy backstage at the festival. You can see Light Robert Deniro. Some of the people who didn't want to do interviews. You could see why when you sleep. Big Interview he was he was the funny one actually like a lot of bounds where people don't see humor like pink floyd. They always thought of that stuff was funny now was getting off work also both of them sort of love him but Florida was the bodies locked about he was hurt a sat in that piece. You mentioned. He Discard Floor Amazon. Sound Fascist when the first CODA was built for crosswalk into the man who did it sounded to human and could be make it a bit more robotic. Yes and he had. He was always tinkering with sound and had finally I gather in recent years been given a post as German university. In some sound. He'd never practically took out. Is that cows. Real University. Appointed him some sort of professorship and they'd never shut up he was basically interested in in the sound of the future of course personally that we're very interested in in cycling on that endlessly enormous loops of Europe on that bikes and one of the things that inspires all of their stuff is is the idea of motion phone. Martian travel internationalism. Let's of stuff. That's why that was records Trans Europ Express which about traversing the continent and the rhythms they come up with came from breathing and heartbeat and cycling. And things like that. I mean intellectually. They were very brilliant worldly. Yeah I mean they're into music. The other two pieces do feature Florence baking some one from some five called Dallas on the autobahn except it's a Scottish also bomb when the maybe that I you took on Florin is in severe. And then Leonard Brian into being wealth and flora and full interview in nineteen seventy seven and. Then when he's very articulate rows may have been more of the Socialist spokesman. I suppose well I think he was just happier talking. It's not necessarily have more to say. Flora wasn't interested in that I mean I always thought choking slower on. His father was a famous architect who had built Cologne apple and various paces and I always thought across wigs a bit like architecture that they resembled the Pompidou Centre know. `sound sound is a sort of blaming. Toubon of modernism with any of the sentimental flourishes with all its tech only outside proudly that in the seventies you. We're all about from Jasper old enough to remember when people had high FIS in wooden cabinets on television smartphones. Well how'd you know he hasn't got one in the wouldn t to have a high fight? It wouldn't cabinet terribly retro. They didn't have any of those. Wouldn't panels was all gleaming on the outside and that's very it was very architectural. Very precise and beautiful. Jasper being half German. I mean what craft the meantime and. I know that you're fine but I'm just interested in how you hear crosswalk at the age of twenty three. I think that very interesting and I've always been into electronic music also because it was one of the first kinds of music that I was able to make for myself beyond playing the piano but for me it cannot have the newness that would have done at the time so for me. It's very interesting as the germ of so many ideas that you can trace afterwards it. It's not necessarily exciting in a sort of. Wow this is so different anything. I've heard before but it is exciting in the sense of. Wow these guys were visionaries and they can really see what was possible with technology but the other thing that I like is that I'm not only Joan. Actually Joan part of my family is from. The Rheinland is from New York alone. Dicit doff. So that is the Germany that I know as well that industrial landscape very flat and I really liked the point. You make about the humor of actually something talked about when door. Linski came on the pod is like people often seen these robotic and people laugh at them when in fact people should be laughing with them. Because there's so much humor in what they do something that I really really appreciate because it's a kind of humor that I well. There's a lot of a lot of humor. Sort of visually aesthetical whatsoever. Retro-futurism only all black the black and white stuff from the named signs. The Lights of old coach Bossa full seven. Eleven flying by the background also lyrics in Germany. One of the things. I've found frustrating. A lot of the I mean. That's so much a reaction to German culture time. The neatness the politics the surveillance state the sort of hippie going back to the country that rebelling against all of that and celebrating technologies. But there's also a lot of humor in the songs in. Its they translate them so much of that goes wrong. I mean like the model which is a very dry unfunny song in German and English. Sounds like an idiot. I mean the seven year old. I love it. It's just sort of bizarre. That thing which I didn't seem to mind about that although interesting I think that many groups have a song that kind of hey have to play for crosswalk it would have been the model I mean. They dropped that for years in their live set because of course it come as a hit in in the early eighties when it was in bayside a new single from previous album so it was completely wrong. Them and suddenly the English would put it as only number one hit and they didn't want keenum like warrants. Avon levels of London..

Positive Trends in Retail for 2020

"So we are a few days away from the drive conference and everybody here is very excited. There's a lot of stuff going on. But we want to take some time to talk about websites and talk about how the last year has been for retailers and interestingly enough my guest today Dalton who you all remember from the last market addition had some interesting feedback. What clients were saying? We wanted to just hop on here. The podcast and talk about that. Hello so I would say some of the feedback that I got in the first quarter here. Twenty twenty was that twenty nineteen for lottery. Taylor's was not a great year so it was a pretty tough year. Are they saying why like what's making them feel that sentiment so a lot of them is just volume of sales? That's pretty much as they set a gold in nineteen and they maybe didn't hit it or they just missed it or some people miss a lot. Right obviously he's retailer. It's different you have different factors but across the board. It seems like the industry kind of missed the mark. A little bit Twenty twenty the feedback. I've already gotten is that. They didn't adjust their twenty. Twenty numbers to you know. Bring them down based on two thousand eighteen th performance if anything they they're overshooting for twenty twenty to make up for that and they're very optimistic they're going to hit it and that's mom and POPs. That's you know retailers with thirty locations. That's everybody in between everybody's really excited for twenty twenty. I think there's probably a couple of factors that play into that but by and large it's a hopeful industry for this year. Yeah found I think the same things happening on the manufacturing side. We're hearing from lots of different types of manufacturers who were looking at investing for twenty twenty and that seems to be the theme of look. We couldn't control what happened in two thousand nine hundred tariffs happened. It was a thing that changed everything for everyone and basically production of new and innovative. Things stopped but it seems like we've had the time to breathe. Everyone has done their over-correction from tariffs and now they're pulling back to now. We have to get on the ball. Yes that sidetracked is for a little bit but now we're on the ball and I think it's interesting that typically trends don't show our industry taking big leaps in election years for example we've got economic uncertainty. The Corona virus is causing markets to. We were just talking about this before we started. Recording markets are fluctuating. And there's small states of panic and yet the furniture industry continues to feel optimistic. So I think that's I think it's a good point. I think one of the things he said in that as important as I think the trend for twenty twenty the reason that people are optimistic is. It's not so much that a blind sense of optimism is the fact that hey we went through it and twenty nine thousand nine hundred and you know. I'm not going to let that happen again. In Two thousand twenty. So what can I do? What actions can I take? Change THAT RIGHT. So whether it's people that you actively put off getting website or into digital marketing and the back six months two thousand nineteen because business was bad. Now it's twenty twenty. You're wiping the slate clean. You understand that. Hey It's already been three months like we're already in the march. That's what's happening. It's time to get going for twenty twenty if you haven't already so I think that's that's an important thing is that you'll maybe we got hit in the mouth and industry in two thousand nine hundred? But we've readjusted our prepared to fight back with it and especially with some of the stuff you know like you said that. Corona virus tariffs last. Year was a terrible time for everybody. I think by and large people understand that at the end of the day. What'S GONNA MAKE? Your store successful. Is You having a plan that works for your market and you enacting that plant being frozen being frozen being you know just doing what you did last year probably is not gonNA work this year? You have to do something but I think people are. Ready are more ready to take that that step? I think it's interesting. Something you said looking at their own market. That's something I feel is different this year than every other year. The optimism is. Hey I'm not trying to compete with wayfair. I'm not trying to compete with Amazon right now. I'm looking at my local targets. Who are my actual. Oh competitors it might not be the guy down the street because he doesn't have design services. I think it's interesting to see that. They're not only optimistic but they're focused. Which is in a again in a year of uncertainty. That's incredible to see. Are you seeing any trends of will? This is the thing that they're focused on. Are they focused on advertising budgets? Are they focused on increasing their brands or maybe expanding their showroom or the website? What is the thing you find about? What I'm finding is finding redesigning the website or at least making significant changes to your website. I think that's a big one and then I think the other one is digital marketing. Because you know what I found has been doing this. There's a lot of businesses a lot of retailers ESPEC- specifically in the furniture industry that they set up a website and it's just their website and they don't touch it for years I've had more conversations in the first three months this year people saying. Hey I haven't touched my website in a long time. I need to change it than I have in any amount of time here before right so I think the consensus is you know again. Feeling the heat from last year. They're looking at it and saying well something's gotTa give why not this website. That's been stale for ten years. Now let's change it. I think that and then I think the other piece of it is is definitely the digital marketing side. So I think there's a lot of retailers that you know maybe had too much of the panic of Amazon here way fares said overstock dot com like the all. These places are going to just run me out of business and I have no prayer but I think you know going back to what we just said. Once they realized that sure Amazon wayfair national. They're huge if you're trying to toe to toe with them you're probably not GonNa win that fight but if you're going to focus on your town and your physical brick and mortar in your town which is an advantage that you have over everybody else and all those other etailers. I think when people focus their efforts there and put their advertising dollars into their market their delivery area. Right all that kind of that. Kind of local hyper local. Focus to help them a lot and I think they can actually expect to get a better return rather just worrying about our Amazon everywhere. I gotta find that. Don't don't fight. Focus on winning your local market. First and foremost. It's taking a concept. We talked about last year. Brick and mortar is not dead. And it's definitely a thing that's happening in this year but it's taking that concept and putting the reality behind it of hey guess what. I do have a brick and mortar store but that makes me more powerful than some of the people who have been competing with Ken Witter who's talked about this on the podcast before? He's doing a session at Dr Conference. Shameless plug and in part of it is discussing. How look to see the companies that have been etailers that are now creating brick and mortar experiences because brick and mortar is succeeding. Where online is failing. So I think it's interesting to see that concept play into reality here. I think is huge. I think even to that point I. I can't tell you how many retailers had no idea that like wayfair and Amazon are looking at brick and mortars had no concept until they talk to us like myself included. What was the response to that kind of shock and awe? Everybody was kind of wait. What and then as soon as they realize if they pull out their phone they start looking it up to make sure I'm telling the truth. And then when they realize that now you're lying for lying just drama right. Yeah No. I'm I'm telling the truth and they'll look it up and realize it and then as soon as they do okay. So what would you recommend right? And I think that's an important piece that you know a lot of times. I think we try to be helpful like I myself every single day. I'm talking to you know tens of hundreds of retailers. Trying to help people trying to help figure out what's going to work best in their market but having that looming you know Amazon. Wayfair that all men. They're starting to get stores to having that become a real presence to them. I think that's it's powerful. Because then they realize I've had. I've been here for fifty years. My Dad owned the store before me my Granddad for him right and I think that you know just makes it more real for them that hey I have a stake in this and all these other companies wanting to get already. What is your advice that you give people? And what would you give to anybody listening? Who maybe feels that optimism but doesn't know what to do with it. What would you tell them with optimism? You don't know what to do with it. I think you make a plan right. Optimism is great but optimism about action is nothing absolutely so I mean. Be Happy about what? You're what you're expecting but I would say if you have internal things for the store your stores or ship. You're going to handle that right if you need a higher sale got whatever you need to do internally the very next focus once you have the internal set aside and taking care of is does the website right and there's a clear distinction here and I think last time I mentioned this lightly but there's a clear station between your website and your marketing for your website and a lot of people that together and that's very different because your website is the only version of your store. That's available twenty four seven three sixty five. The lights don't go off and that's huge right whether you do ecommerce not who cares if you have something online that is representative of Your Business. Twenty four seven fantastic and it looks good right so handle upside now the marketing for the website as another piece right so in order. Take care of your your store take care of your house. It was a phrase. I've always heard my whole life taking your house. Your store right. Take your website. Which is the online version. Your store to twenty four seven version and then take care of your marketing

Peak Misery And The Happiness Curve

"Okay. Why don't we start with your name? And what you you David. blanchflower professor of economics at Dartmouth College and there was a period there. Were you served on the Bank of England. Yes in two thousand six. Six Golden Brown called me up and said Don. I wanted you to go to the Bank of England I said Oh okay And I want you to come to the really seriously. Ah So so. Monetary policy clearly is one of your specialties. How did you get into the sort of world of happiness and and in midlife crises? So what does the Central Bank you care about Central Bank as Aboud interest rates inflation unemployment growth. But they're into people don't care about that they care about how it impacts their wellbeing so I started to think about ultimately What impacts impacts their wellbeing so I actually have a paper? Brian Look at Tommy. Inflation and unemployment impact people's happiness so in a sense those things are intermediate goods. What we really do care about a people's happiness so I go to it and then I started to realize the patterns in the data while guests here high unemployment high I am happiness is absolutely right and so what I found was one of the big results from this is a one percentage point increase in unemployment has a big effect on people's happiness? So that's some of the stuff that I've been doing like really basic question is I mean obviously I know how we measure unemployment but how how did you go about measuring wellbeing. Like how do you measure happiness. Feels like that would have been a challenge at the start of this research absolutely So it turns out that there are many many many many many surveys around the world that actually ask people directly. How happy are you so sometimes they say in literally how happy I you on a scale of one to ten? How satisfied with your life? I you so these schools. Well the first thing. Is that the patterns in these data. When you ask this you pretty much get the same results? Every time most people are pretty happy very few people very unhappy and the same fluid ounces occur on it but I think what what you you would say. Why does this matter when it turns out? This is currently with things so happy people heal faster they live longer healthier so you you are are in the world of central banking. You get interested in happiness and well-being And then in two thousand seven you you release this. The sort of paper a had a huge impact on a lot of people. So can you kind of sort of set the scene. Two thousand seven. What was that paper? I started to work with number colleagues leagues on trying to think about these patterns. In happiness data and three things stood out the first one we just talked about that unemployment impacts it impacts happiness being married impacts it but one of the things we saw very easily so in the data was that happiness is high. When you're a young is high when you're old but this trough in the middle so this this you shake so this is what drove it? I'm particularly interested in deepening case. Talk about deaths of despair and particularly we seem a crisis in America suicides especially in drug poisoning deaths amongst the prime age in particular not prime age less educated folk. And there's that issue around the world so that's so that was really kind of the starting point I've done this study of one hundred thirty the two countries and what I find when average all together in advanced countries The the the the deer. If you like the low point of this happiness it is forty seven and when you do it for developing countries that got nine hundred five developing countries that do before very similar about forty eight point six so around forty eight That seems to be right. And what's interesting over the last couple of weeks. I've been talking a lot about lots of people. Call me and tweet it to me and and so on and said wow that really fits my life. So you've you've talked about this a little bit but I'd love to get like really specific. So what is it that that is causing. I do think I mean like what is it about I guess it was at forty seven point to you What is it what is going on that? That's making people unhappy at that age. Well I think if you look back. I'm a professor so I've lots of young people I teach these young folks And then they left home when they come through the university and they suddenly realize there's more than one way to cook an egg but all of that is pretty dumb tough especially these days where student loans and having to try and buy a house. What are you going to do with all of that stuff? This is really hard but I mean in the sense. What's interesting about it is this phenomena phenomenon appears to be true everywhere? It's not unique to Germany Japan the US and Canada African countries. You see it in Latin America seating Thailand highland so I think it's something that's the people the people are experiencing and then eventually I think eventually I think what happens is people get real. I mean some of the work have written said when you get to meet fifty you your aspiration start to become real when I was talking to you. You're in the Florida mangroves and yes and you write fishing right and that day you caught a fish right the was it again. It was a it was a twenty eight inch twenty pound redfish toward and and you so you sent me this picture. It's a picture of just for listeners. Out There WanNA picture You're just beaming. You still have your security. I have to say this professor blanchflower so We publish this article Ray and it goes on the web and twitter being witter. I had somebody are- tweet at me. And they said this. How are we supposed to trust any of this switch? Flower guys work when he blatantly lies about fishing that Royd ride nowhere near twenty pounds eight to ten pounds so any respond here. I mean I mean the question. It doesn't really rely the size of the faith. which is what I said relies on the fact that I looked awfully happy? You happy. You're on the you're on the upward swing of your happiness curve. We're on yes I've come to see my action sir. My son having a wedding party. Today's Louisiana but your children bring you joy. The grandkids life life improves.

Language barrier: Cameroons forgotten conflict

"Not so long ago. Cameroon was a stable country in a fragile region. Today it's anything but for the past three years of bloody conflict. Raging separatist militias want independence for the English speaking areas of the mainly Francophone Country Poor governance silence. trigger-happy forces are burning down villages while the militias are becoming increasingly violent. Thousands have died in the unrest. More than half a million have been forced from their homes. I spent a week travelling in the anglophone the phone regions where the effects of the war are clear for everyone to see John. McDermott is our Africa correspondent in village after village that I drove through I saw fields feels that grown wild houses that are being burned down and several buildings are just been pot marked with bullets. The conflict was inescapable. The origins of the conflict go back at least a century after the first World War the former German colony of Cameroon was split up between Britain and France and then when those parts became independent in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine hundred and sixty one. They were spliced together to make modern day Cameroon and now the country is officially by lingual with roughly twenty percent of people speaking English and eighty percent of people speaking French but the English speakers claim. Decades of marginalization is Asian by the central government and year upon year. They've been promised more devolution to their regions but those promises have been repeatedly broken and so why did those attention start to increase three years ago. Those tensions had been bubbling for some time but towards the tail end of two thousand sixteen lawyers and teachers hit the streets protesting against the imposition of Francophone Systems and in response to those peaceful protests. The government hit back hard intern a year later. Some of the more extreme anglophones who are separatists I want independence they proclaimed the independent state of Amazonia Zonja which is named after the embassy in the southwest of the country and once more this led to another escalation this time violent international NGOs. Joe Think there's been at least three thousand people killed and perhaps several times more than not and so who's responsible for that. Violence is security. Forces is the a separatist themselves so neither are covering themselves in glory. Both separatist militias and security forces have committed atrocities. But there's also no doubt that the Cameroonian military is behind most of the bloodshed local. Ngo in Boya. The main city in the southwest region estimates that more than two hundred and twenty villages across the anglophone the phone region have been burned by Cameroonian military and you met some of the people who have been affected by that violence. Yes I met lots of people who'd been affected one man I met was called who had to flee his village of economic because of just a torrent of shootings and burnings by the military. He said he could recall literally hundreds of incidents where soldiers had fired at his fellow villagers story when a military gum Strauss. His immovable from galaxy censured was and in a when. You're hearing these stories. You can stop a why. Why are they doing this and for him? It just seemed like there was no questions asked us behind the soldiers they were just firing will do your neighbor in this to these two other people. I really cannot tell you. I really don't tell you because does does the systems municipal new way on Shugden. I do and you say the the army is responsible for most of the violence. But not all I mean well. What are the separatists doing so the separatists have mostly been attacking military and the military installations? But they've also also been attacking people on their own side who are deemed to be collaborators. With the State one woman I met Adeline worked for a state run company and call you you coming in Development Corporation which runs a series of plantations in the region and she described how one day she was accosted by about twenty of these militia men who attacked her tied to a tree stuff leaves her mouth is the diagnosed with autism or last about twitter witter and then chopped off a finger again. You ask them why they're doing this and her crime little as it might seem to us was to work for this state. Run Company and US was deemed a collaborator. If you have anything to do with the Francophone Central Government. You're into on this side. I mean that must have knock on effects for for the way. The country runs for the economy's for society. The economy is collapsing. The anglophone regions contribute about fifth of the country's GDP and the main in company is that plantation CD and since the attacks began a couple of years ago workers essentially stopped. Revenue is down ninety percent. MM sold a single banana when I went down to their headquarters in a tank with a the general manager and all his staff just seem completely full on these because because they had also been receiving lots of death. Threats phoned the separatists so I said you know how you how you dealing with this posed any side and he looked at me and I said I pray more or less and so in essence people are are simply afraid to to go about business as usual. Yes there's widespread terror amongst the population and it's especially acute amongst parents. Almost ninety percent of children and the anglophone regions have not gone to school for three years. This is partly because of forced displacements by the military but it's also because the separatists see schools as arms terms of the state. Now there are some incredibly brave educators who have set up ad hoc classrooms and buildings these displaced children again. It's not entirely entirely safe. I asked one of the teachers at the school. I visited Baya. How do you ensure the security of these children John and frankly she admitted you can never be one hundred percent safe award yet? If we knew in fact she said that there were often threats of kidnapping which has become increasingly common as separatists. Either seek to impose their will or frankly sometimes just seek to get extra money out of the population. So what about the people who aren't directly involved in the conflict in the anglophone region. How do they view the constant cycle of violence? It's hard to do polling in a war zone but when the violence began it seemed like there was a surge in support for the separatists who reviewed viewed as helping keeping local safe but as time has gone on and you find things like the sabotage of education opinion may be in slightly shifting against them. I interviewed a professor at the University of Boya Guy called Garner some of the inflicted on a community. Ah Ah change attitudes. And he said that loyalty to the separatists is indeed dwindling. No longer call him voice. Call them booze boys he he also told me that in what most anglophones want isn't necessarily independence they want more autonomy Habsi federal Cameroon's not a safe arenas we're waiting for it is. It is anglophone vessels from before but he was very keen to stress that the anglophones have grievances but there were the central government not the french-speaking compatriots. Do you think a kind of reduced appetite amongst the Anglophones Ford. This conflict will have any effect on it. I mean how do you see. The situation playing out at the moment went to win. A bit of a stalemate because the separatist militias take the towns and the Cameron Army camp take the Bush normally calls for a political solution. Cameroon lean governed as it is by president. Paul Biya who has been on the proverbial thrown for thirty seven years is prone to move slowly in September. He announced a national dialogue but it was a total sham. Some of the key people weren't invited and it wasn't really even about the anglophone crisis so what you have then is. Is this political process. That's going far too slowly also because the rest of the world doesn't take much notice it's an underfunded under reported crisis and the bulk of people are just stuck in the middle of these two warring sides. Many people just want to get on with their lives in peace and sadly that's only possible in a few safe places such as the very very center boyer one evening I was there in the center. I was waiting for the Bishop of the time. And I caught one of those few glimpses of normality through the open windows of the church. I watched a choir including many members been asked fled their homes from other parts of the region and they were they were practising their songs for me. It was just a little reminder that in the midst of all this violence and chaos there is an everyday urge. Just keep one can occasionally manifest itself in rather beautiful ways. John Thank you very much for your time. Thank you

Tristan Walker's Winding Journey to Walker & Co.

"I got laid off in January of two thousand eight. I was applying to Stanford for business school. I applied there in the fall. All of that year and fast forward I started Stanford September of two thousand and eight crash happens a month later. Wow so you get to Stanford and from what I've read like you didn't really have a sense of what Silicon Valley was and what the tech world was any of that at all so so what what did you like. What was your impression? We got there so at Stanford I got there is two thousand and eight. I was twenty four years old and very quickly I knew as where I needed to be primarily because I saw the twenty four year olds not only making millions of dollars but fundamentally changed in the world and like how come I had no idea about this place. Seriously thought Silicon Valley was a place where semiconductors got made right. That's it that's it. This was before kind of you. Know facebook became what it did witter mujber all that stuff right in foursquare. I say wow I can participate in this and I started to have that kind of hotchkiss moment again right yeah. This is something new but I can you do while you are a student at Stanford you start to reach at a four square league. I mean what what what's the story like what what is foursquare at the time foursquare location based at at ten thousand users at the time. It was getting me explore. My the city is getting me to do things that I didn't WanNa. Do Give me the gym more like how is this thing actually inspiring me and changing my behavior I and I said wow like I. I want to figure this out found. The founders emails on the Internet is the classic story emailed Dennis Crowley the CEO founder eight times and the eighth time he might be back and never forget this. He said he said after all these ideas as I share with them you know what Karma I just may take you up on some of this period. Are you ever in New York question-mark Dan's my wife and I were watching lost binging on loss at the time I remember this very vividly in liver and it look like what should I do in five minutes later I said actually yes. I was planning on being in New York tomorrow. So I booked my flight. That night flew out the following morning. Show at the office and you're like I'm here and what happened. I was thirty six Cooper Square. We were on the fifth floor. They surprised to see you. I opened the door for Dennis was facing the back he turned around and he looked at me. Surprise as if like I wasn't actually going to come and here's this awkward moment like what does he do now and it so happened that there were like two empty desks there. He's like yeah go over there over there and throughout the day I mean he had a meeting yeah couple of meetings and then when he's done with came over he's like all right. So what do you want to do and I was like. I don't know and send him some ideas over email around kind of signing up retailers merchants that sort of thing anyone who's familiar with foursquare very small business focused. We wanted to get merchants on the platform orm to start engaging with their customer. I'll tell you what sign up thirty merchants by the end of the week and get a job and and he's like what do you want your title to be as like a business development because as we're business in it and I go to business school so it makes a lot of sense and how many people by the way how many people worked at four square there are two and a half Dennis Navene they were co founders and then Harry who is leading engineering but he wasn't quite fulltime but I guess US theoretically so he's he gives you challenge signed thirty businesses up by the end of the week and we'll see if we can do and what happened signed up three hundred four hundred. Oh Wow so you end up going to work four square after you after you graduated from Nope is actually in between my first and second year business school so I work fulltime foursquare during my second year school and four square gave me a gift you know because I was so early I felt as it was as much as my company is. Everybody is a family. They were doing something completely different. You know we had folks like facebook trying to come after us and that felt that was energy. I loved it and I felt like my work wasn't done so new. Dentists was kind enough to let me work on the West Coast to allow me to get a platform for people to know who I was after I graduated. He didn't ask me to come to New York. He's like you can stay on the company was growing yeah. There's a lot that I had to learn to write and through that process in not only kind of kind of growing the business. What does it look like to go from two employees one hundred fifty to raise tens of millions of dollars to build something uniquely authentic? It was an education that I wouldn't have gotten alone so you were there three and a half almost four years three years so you decide that's roads course and I'm going to do the next thing and it turns out that you either met or you knew Ben Horowitz the one of the partners of injuries in Orleans and he convinced you to become an entrepreneur residents there. How did that happen? How did you meet yes so when it's on the board of four squares they were the four squares largest investors? I known been not very intimately which is kind of as board member in new of the work that I did. I'm so when I told Dennis that I was leaving the company Dennis reach us on the board told them I was leaving and then Ben reach out to me a day or two later he said Tristan I get it right. I understand and you should not be an entrepreneur in residence reasons why and he said but if you're going to be an entrepreneur resonated with us and what were you going to do entrepreneur residence basically come up with ideas and and pitch ideas to them in theory they would fund those ideas so in as I think about the job is one of the craziest jobs in the world you get paid to think of ideas all day. He said comes to spend six nine months with us to figure this out and I was like I'm gonNA spend all nine months to figure this out residents. It's interesting because I've never met one who's enjoyed myself included but it spending a lotta a lot of time to think about things in an authentic way right you know the lesson I learned in Ben Taught me a lot. He's like tristen. You got to understand that you need to do the thing that you fundamentally believe that you are the best person in the world to do right. We have a unique proposition giving your story to solve that problem again. If you're doing something that's like inauthentic. This is hard enough right. You can't do

Let's put smart to work learn more at i._b._m. Dot com slash red hat. Welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren bocom here. The giant squid is carnivorous invertebrate that weighs over four hundred and forty pounds or two hundred kilograms and measures around thirty three feet or ten meters long. Yes it can be as long as a school bus and has is the size of dinner plates along with a sharp beak in short. It's a little disconcerting. Perhaps apps more. Disconcerting is the fact that these wild creatures which have rarely ever been spotted alive have been popping up in the videos in recent years very much alive and very very large urge before two thousand four that only been found his carcasses washed up on beaches or captured by fishermen so what's going on under the sea is a rash shove giant squid sightings and indication that these see giants are taking over the waves in a word not but the sightings do indicate technology is advancing an and exciting new ways. We spoke edith witter p._h._d. The c. e. o. m. senior scientist of florida's ocean research in conservation association inc did she said it hasn't really been a rash of giant squid sightings. There have only been two times giant squid have been filmed in the deep sea both times the animals were spotted with help from a camera system and optical lure that witter developed to help researchers explore the creatures of the deep sea without scaring them away the camera system is called called. Medusa medusa is unlike any recording device used before because it emits a red light. That's an invisible to most creatures living in the midnight zone. That's the expanse pitch black water about three thousand three hundred feet or thousand meters below the ocean surface then there's the optical lure an electronic jellyfish that accompanies medusa down below the waves to help draw creatures toward the camera with an innovative method that takes inspiration from animals natural cues called an e jelly witter explained blamed the each elliott imitates the bioluminescence burglar alarm display of a common deep sea jellyfish bioluminescence burglar alarms are like scream for help using liked liked their last-ditch effort of pray that are caught in the clutches of a predator to attract the attention of a bigger predator that may attack their attacker and thereby afford them an opportunity for escape escape until just fifteen years ago. The only facts known about giant squid were gathered from their massive dead bodies since live ones had never been seen then then in two thousand and four the first live images of giant squid were captured and in two thousand twelve. The first video of a giant squid emerged thanks to medusa capturing specimen swimming off of japan's cassara archipelago. It wasn't until june of two thousand nineteen that another medusa shot giant squid video came to light this time of a roughly ten foot long. That's three remitters young swimmer in u._s. Waters around the gulf of mexico june twenty nineteen marked the fifth deployment of medusa on this particular expedition and when witter and her team examined the video the undeniable footage of a long tentacle creature reaching out for the jelly. It's hard to tell exactly how big it was because it was heading straight towards the camera. All these years of underwater chasing begs the question. Why are these animals so camera. Shy in the first place witter said the giant giant squid has been elusive because our standard methods of exploration using platforms with bright lights and noisy thrusters has been scaring away the only reason we even knew giant squid existed assisted is because they happen to float when they die so dead and dying specimens have been seen and photographed surface. How many other animals are they're living in the deep sea that we don't know about because we've been scaring them away and they don't happen to float when they die a good and perhaps even more disconcerting question indeed today's episode was written by michelle concept dusky and produced by tyler.

Are you buying Apple's new AirPods with wireless charging case? (The 3:59, Ep. 537)

"Welcome to the fifty nine. And Roger Jane. I'm Alfred apple continues at streak of quietly announcing product news via press releases today, we got new airports. They are now compatible Siri which debatable that's improvement. You'll get twice talk time. Thanks to the chip. They started one hundred fifty nine dollars. Or if you want the wireless charging case starts at one ninety nine. I can't believe people are really paying this much for headphones. And here we are where air pods have essentially become a status symbol for a lot of people. They have extremely frustrating. I mean, look they were mocked early on you Scott Stein's face became a meme, and I was skeptical of first, but they've really taken off. I mean, you see them everywhere. I use wireless headphones. I just don't use air pods. It's our I don't get it. But they are extremely popular. I can see why people think they're so convenient the sinking for for air pods is really simple from what I've seen. And yeah, the these this next generations gonna make another boatload of money despite apple. And I can appreciate them. Like, you know, just releasing all of these announcements as opposed to the holding at all for one day. That's true. They are spraying this out there. Basically monopolizing the entire new cycle for the week with these little press releases. I am old. I guess I'm disappointed. I know of folks on my Twitter, much Witter followers are a little disappointed. We didn't get new colors. We didn't get water resistance or we didn't get noise cancellation which were things that were rumored. Also, they didn't get. You know, something that makes it much harder to fall out. Oh, yeah. Tips that I think that would would have been my number one request. I know. That's why I specifically don't use air pods. I much prefer in your headphones. Yeah. I have I have one's a loop to the back of my year. There Samsung ones, but they are come pain the charge. These seem a lot more convenient. Let's move on Google is also the news, thanks to its big GDP announcement stadia say Netflix like streaming game service. Basically is this going to kill off console? No. I think that of all the tech companies that are doing this. They will definitely has the infrastructure to have this kind of like network cloud gaming kind of service. But I look at what they were offering, and they don't have any games that I wanna play on it right now. And I don't think that you know, Nintendo or Sony are really gonna play ball with them. Well, if not Nintendo Sony though, right? It's these individual public. Yes. What do you think they'll play ball with Google? Yeah. And they have you know, they talk about assassin's creed odyssey, and we'll be soft being there. But that is not a game. I'm interested in playing very popular game. Yes. But I don't know. I I looked at it. I'm like, look, I'm less. You get really good exclusives on this. Right. Don't really see people flooding to this cool, though, our city up their own game studio, Google's got a lot of money. Throat developers. Yeah. It definitely looks cool. It looks like that's where the future of gaming is headed where consoles aren't really that important. You can just play on the cloud. But I'm interested to see how that will work when you're playing online multiplayer on the cloud as well. And you're using a rig that isn't that great also this. This is great, you know, once connective around and things like that. But if you live in a rural area doesn't have broadband internet, which is a lot of the population. Like, you're not going to be able to play on stadia. No, that's true. That's another reason why five G needs to be around. It's all about five still not going to rule area, fine, whatever one little touch. I like though, they added the code to the back of the controller that was kind of nice. Lastly or not last night. We're talking about the Phil recognition story in the package offered you the perils of shoplifting. And what could happen with facial recognition? Now's about it. And this is not an endorsement of shoplifting. But I found one facial recognition. Company that provides this technology to ban shoplifters. We're just anyone that the store doesn't like and they have a cloud service for it. So that if I was caught shoplifting from store a, for example, that would mean that that store can send to all their other branches. Hey, this guy is on our list, if the facial recognition spots me, I can't walk into the any of those stores, and they also provide a service where every one of their other customers they can opt to share that data with each other. So if store as partnered is also a customer and store be store. See, etc. Are also customers of this facial recognition vendor. I could be banned from all those stores, even though I've never walked into angels places. I mean, yeah, definitely a good illustration of potential. Potential problems. And there's no regulations in the US to prevent that from happening, right? Lastly, please check out our feature by Hyun reporter Derek Kerr who actually traveled across the Texas border to several border town to see what kinds of technologies are being -ployed as an alternative to that physical wall that President Trump wants fascinating story for more that chicks seen it. Roger Chang, I'm outfitting. Thanks for listening.

Until the communist revolution of nineteen forty nine to bet. Head enjoyed a degree of independence but after their victory. The authorities in China sent in their troops. China six hundred and fifty million people heal the victory over the rebels in Tibet the uprising of March nineteen fifty nine is an event mourned by the debate and people and supporters of their cause yesterday. Protesters gathered in New Delhi and other cities around the world to Mark the nursery and to call Tabet, s- independence. China's communist party records the events of nineteen Fifty-nine rather differently. Is an integral part of China. Oppose intervention in China's internal bears build a happy and prosperous new Tabet. Chinese officials coal March the sensitive months across the Tabet and plateau James miles is our China editor every year the month of March is one that causes them extreme anxiety and this year because the sixtieth anniversary of the Tibetan uprising of nineteen fifty nine. They've made it very clear that their anxiety has reached even higher levels than usual. Why is the month of March so sensitive many thebenz still remember with bitterness? What happened in nineteen fifty nine in early March of that year in Lhasa? Rumors began to spread that the Chinese. Authorities were preparing to abduct the Dow Allama the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism. And so as those rumors spread crowds began to gather. And the authorities began to get nervous about a week after protests began to erupt on on March tenth nine hundred fifty nine week after that the Dalai Lama fled into exile in India where he has remained ever since and the rest in Lhasa escalated became a violent shooting broke out. It was a very of violent period suppressed ruthlessly by the by the Chinese. Government and many abedin's today. Still yearn for the die Lama to return that looks extremely unlikely. How things gone since then? From Tibetan perspective terribly. Tibet's own a brand of of the Buddhist religion suffered huge blows during a mouse rule. Monks were expelled from monasteries things began to recover after the reign of now, but China the Chinese government suspicion of of Tibetan Buddhism suspicion of the control the influence of the Dalai Lama, even though he has been living in exile in India has remained very high. And there's one thing that really unites most abedin's and that is huge reverence for the Dalai Lama himself. So the Chinese government's relentless attacks on him denunciations of him have created a great deal of resentment among thebenz. And so what's your experience been when when this thing Tabet? Well, I was there in. Two thousand eight when riots broke out in Lhasa. This was the the biggest outbreak of unrest. Since the uprising in nineteen fifty nine it involved attacks by Tibetan residence against shops, run by ethnic Han Chinese attacks on ethnic Han people since then the authorities have been on an even greater state of alert than usual. The sound. You hear is Tig took you out. You're not the first of several rounds. The town's people run for cover. Do you not? No, one can tell us how many hurt, but one eyewitness tells of monks being savagely beaten, and we've seen roundups of of monks who were supposed to have been allegedly behind this or simply because of their connections with the exile camp in in India, and in protest against this escalated repression across the Tabet and plateau we've seen more than one hundred fifty people who've set fire to themselves in protest against these measures and many of them have died. So how have religious minorities fared under president Xi Jinping? How have things been more recently? Well, there's been a general tightening of control of religions siege in ping would like to achieve what he calls, the sinus is Asian of religion in China. And that includes Tabet in Buddhism. We'd seen even before. Ping came to power the declaration in Tibet of what they call serfs emancipation day. That's another big anniversary coming up. It's on March the twenty eighth and it's the day in nineteen fifty nine after the Tabet uprising when China formally dissolved the I Lama led government and ushered in as they would describe it a new era of a democracy and freedom in Tabet freedom that is from monastic control. But more generally in neighboring sin Jang, we've seen an extraordinary escalation of repression over the past couple of years a million people seized and put into what they call re education centers, and it seems a very often the only pretext for doing so is simply because these people are devotees of Islam the. The authorities defend this as a way of preventing the spread of militancy among ethnic Witter's in in the sin Jang region. But this is part of a general repression that we've seen across the board in China. I I wonder if the sort of increased focus on Xinjiang and what's going on. There has sort of drawn attention away from thebenz. I mean, there there was a time when there was a lot of activism, and there were a lot of their Hollywood stars were coming to to sort of draw attention to the plight of Tibetans, and we haven't heard much of that. Well, I I think that's partly because the authorities of been so effective in in shutting down access to the region. I think sympathy with the Tibetan plight abroad remains at at very high levels is just that we haven't seen large protests break out there. But I can imagine that. Attention would swing rapidy again too. I bet. Well, we to see trouble there on the authorities are always mindful of of one big event looming. And that is one day the death of the deny Lama that will be a huge blow to many abedin's. And if there is one thing that the is fear might trigger large scared unrest. Again, it is that.

Moto G7 and LG G8 get the smartphone wars going (The 3:59, Ep. 517)

"Tonight or chain. I'm Ben FOX urban the mobile world, congress trade shows almost upon us. Which means we've got a flood of phone news coming your way this morning, Motorola, showed off its new G seven line actually four different versions G-seven itself as that she seven play power. Plus one's got more power got a bigger screen ones. Better for playing with like. Oh, okay. I got I got it. Yeah. I'm on the ball today. Sure. This is why you should care. The Moto g line has consistently been seen that's top pick as a budget phone. But well, sadly, the cost for these devices are going up about fifty bucks more for the G seven still three hundred dollars dollars. Still a definitely a great deal considering all the study get jammed up jam packed into the phone including Jack headphone, Jack. Yeah. And it's third of the price of the iphone ten s but it is a price increase. And I think that's sort of reflection of the fact that like things are getting more expensive than his balance between cost and new features. I think most manufacturers are now airing bit more on adding new features, even for means more expensive device by my hope would be that a phone like this would actually help keep prices down or like help improve on competition. But we haven't really seen that much yet apple has been doing a little bit more of the deals and sales. To try to use the numbers of their iphone? But in general, I don't think that there ever they're not going to significantly lower their big flagship numbers are still going to keep around the Jesus play is actually one nine nine. So there is that sheep return of. Yeah. Now the phone news LG teased a bit of the extra details on their upcoming flagship phone the G eight thin Q. I know it's terrible of I tell time, but they announced last night that the the phone will have a front facing three D scanning front facing camera which better for selfish. But also as a sexually Apple's version of face ID or LG's version of face LG version of Apple's right? And the idea would be to add more like a are in VR features at some. So do you think either of these are really gonna make much noise in the phone market or the still kind of also rans will we'll see LG has definitely struggled has kind of been an also ran they they make like good phones. They're just not quite as good as what Samsung has out right around the same time. So it got some other tricks. I broke the news that they're going to have a phone with a second screen attachment. Oh, yeah. So it might be this phone might be another one. I know LG has a number of devices it's going to announce admirable congress. So we'll see we'll see if they, you know, get some of the spotlight back on them. Yeah. Next up. We want to talk about a story their own steam Shanklin wrote about a drone that my serve as your own home security system. Yeah. Like little attack dog so long attack. I I was definitely thinking that. And I was like this is the coolest idea ever if you have a flying attack dog by. No, that's not exactly right. The idea is to actually cut down on false alarms apparently home security systems in some areas. Actually ninety nine percent of those alarms are false alarms, which is insanely high number. Yeah. So the idea is to have a more sophisticated sense your house. Yeah. That's that's my house. Right. They're not really. So you would have motion vibration, sensors connected all around the perimeter of your home. And if they notice a problem, they send you a notification. And that's when you can get the drone into action, and you could actually watch live. I or your phone. What's going on? Interesting. Sounds like a really cool system. I don't know if it's really for everybody. But yeah. Ninety nine percent false. Alarm rate sounds pretty high. Lastly Twitter posts revenue that beat expectations but weaker forecast and lower monthly active. Users has Wall Street low bummed. Yeah. And they also reported daily active users, but then went out of their way to make sure that that wasn't comparible, right. Monetize daily, active user. What does that? Yeah. It's folks that see ads versus let's say with Facebook. They have daily active users. But it's for folks that either see odds or they don't see it. So they are intentionally trying to prevent us from doing apples to apples comparisons. Which is really nice. Thanks witter. Thanks for clearing things up. We just love the transparency for full coverage seen it Roger Chang. I'm Ben FOX river. Thanks for listening.

Focus To Electric Vehicle Market Drives Changes At GM

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything. General Motors is planning to shudder five plants in North America and lay off thousands of workers one of the plants is in Warren, Ohio. And we spoke with that town's mayor William Franklin one thing about our community. Fortunately, and unfortunately, as we've been down this road before understand the GM had went from three ships to two shifts the one shift and as of Monday, they announced the closing the plant now GM says they have to get more lean to prepare for the next economic downturn. And also become more nimble in a changing transportation industry. Micheline Maynard has witnessed the rises and falls of GM for decades. She's a longtime auto reporter and she joins us. Now. Mickey good morning. I guess just listening to the voice of that. Mayors. Reminder of how important this company in this brand can beat a community. That's right in the old days. General Motors was known as mother Motors. You went to work at General Motors, maybe out of high school, maybe even in high school and took care of you for the rest of your life until retirement. Well, does the company have a valid argument here about why these cuts are necessary. Well, absolutely. And a lot of us who covered the auto bailout ten years ago now wondered if the cuts that took place back then were deep enough. It was always a feeling that there might have to be another set of cuts before General Motors was ready for the future. But even so these did come as a surprise. So what is changing in the industry that is forcing this? And why might it be a surprise? If if these trends have been there for some time. Well, I think the car makers have successfully been selling big SUV's pickup trucks and Witter called crossover vehicles and their profitability is. So high and they cleaned up lots of debt in the auto bailout at General Motors and Chrysler that people thought everything was fine. But underneath the surface. We're seeing kind of an attitude changed towards car ownership the youngest consumers put off getting their driver's licenses. They have lots of student debt they're putting off buying new vehicles. These are the people you see on scooters and skateboards, and my share those are people that the companies look at that. And they just see potential customers who are not driving cars at the moment. Ex. Well, not not only driving, but not owning. And that's the big issue for them. So I think that they've been trying to do is sort of front-load everybody they can into pick-up sinister vis which are really high profit vehicles. And then, you know, wait for the future to come. But in unfortunately for a lot of people the futures already here. So we talk about this being as a prize the fact that that Americans want SUV's in these bigger vehicles. I mean should accompany like GM have have realized that like they're killing production of this hybrid the volt which was. Seen just a decade ago as the as the future, right? Yes. In fact, they went before congress in order to argue for what was then called a bridge loan and said, the volt is the vehicle of the future we're going to move into future with hybrid vehicles electric vehicles. Now, we're talking about a self driving vehicles. But underneath it all they were still building. The what we call cars by the pound the big vehicles. A at some point it just that string. Just runs out. How does this moment compared to other big GM moments that you've covered L? It's I mean, it's in terms of numbers of plant closings. It's not large at all. And I mean, I remember of another holiday period many years ago, I think GM close twenty two plants, and you know. You know, leave something like one hundred thousand workers were affected by that. So this is significant, but it is in the largest ever Micheline Maynard is the author of the end of Detroit how the big three lost their grip on the American car markets. She's a veteran oughta reporter thanks so much for coming in. Thanks for having me.

The The common common challenge challenge all all these these models models still still face face though though is is the the lack lack of of range range that that could could be be about about to to to source source change. However, it's difficult to increase the range on an electric motorcycle to achieve that you need a bigger battery capable of storing, more energy, bigger battery means bigger frame and easy equation that results in a bulky, electric power train. At this point you might as well throw in a few. Hugh more wheels for balance, steering wheel for good measure and call it now. I don't know a car, a group of engineering students from the university of Zurich in Switzerland has actually managed to produce a one off. Motorcycle with a staggering electric range of two hundred and fifty miles. In addition to the range, the bike has a built in quick charge system that can top off its battery in about an hour. The prototype was designed for a school project that challenged the fourteen students to experience all the steps of product development. The result is the all electric ethic. The design is pretty brutal, but it serves its purpose. The mono body unit is a quipped with a massive, lithium ion fifteen kilowatt hour battery. The group explains that the front wheel, braking, dissipate seventy five percent of the energy. So it addressed this reality by adding a front wheel hub motor that will recall. Operate the energy that's dissipated despite its minimalistic look and it's a labyrinth technology. The ethic does retain more classical motorcycle elements, including a lightweight to frame a proper swing arm and a trapezoidal fork out the front of it. Obviously, at this point, there is no talk of production, but the students in Genuity could definitely find some real world applications after all would be easy to market at electric. Motorcycle with the two hundred and fifty mile range, which is more than most gasoline models can travel right now. Hopefully we'll get to see this idea make its way to production. Just please let a design student have a go at it as well. Hyperloop transport faces, many, many hurdles, but until now, how cows can cross the track hasn't really been one of them, but that's going to change as Canadian company. Trans pod sets up its testing facility in a village deep in the French countryside. The current record for high-speed t GV trains could be shattered in the tiny commune of drove in central France. Last week. The company applied for planning permission, which it expects to be granted sometime this year. Hyperloop technology much publicized by Ilan. Musk's enthusiasm involves putting passengers or goods in capsules, which are then projected through depressurized tubes at up to twelve hundred kilometers an hour in their search for the perfect test zone. Transplants researchers hit on the Perez to Lou corridor, which. Has no high speed rail line, but they identified eight, three kilometers stretch of an old now, disused railway passing through farmland transplants, founder and chief executive told, euro news that the project has the backing of both residents and local authorities, but admits they've had to build some quirky demands into their planning application. For example, a farmer who has land on either side of the line wanted them to develop a pathway for animals as little. As you're ago Gendron the founder said that he doubted that anyone in Europe would want to invest in hyperloop technology. Now, investors have committed sixty five million euros transport. Also plans to build a research and development center in southern Italy got some spare time this weekend. Why not build yourself a working Rover from plants provided by NASA, the space Knicks at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have all the plans. Code and materials for you to pursue and use. Just make sure you've got an extra twenty five hundred bucks and a bit of engineering know how this thing isn't made out of Lincoln logs. The story is this after curiosity landed on Mars, GPO wanted to create something a little smaller and less complex that it could use for educational purposes. So they created rove e. That's what they're calling it anyway. Traveled with GPL staff throughout the country and showed off what it was capable of unsurprisingly. Among the many questions asked was often whether a class group could actually built one of their very own. The answer unfortunately was no though far less expensive and complex than a real Mars Rover. Roe v was still too expensive and complex to be a class project. So GPL engineers decided to go back to the drawing board and build one that was less. Expensive. The result is the JPL open source Rover may set of plans that mimic the key components of curiosity, but are simpler and use off the shelf components. The OS are uses curiosity like suspension corner, steering and pivot differential, allowing movement over rough terrain and the brain is a raspberry pi.

WalMart supercenter really isn't much fun, but what if you could do it from the comfort of your own home through virtual reality, the world's biggest retailer wants to find out according to filings with the US patent and trademark office. The company has applied for two patents that detail a virtual showroom and fulfillment center that would connect shoppers clad in VR headsets and censor packed gloves to a three dimensional representation of a WalMart. Store customers could wander digital aisles from home and grab items, which would be immediately picked up and shipped from a fully automated distribution center. The filing is part of WalMart's recent push into virtual reality and area that holds promise for brick and mortar retailers struggling with the massive costs associated with store upkeep and labor.
