Volkswagens Name Change Joke Didn't Land

"From brown and business wars daily on this monday april twelfth. Happy started the week. Everyone you know. Who's been having a tough april volkswagen matsue and as you may have that's mostly because they started the month with an april fools joke that fell flatter than a busted tire is started in the last days of march when the automaker quote accidentally unquote released a very serious sounding statement announcing that they'd be changing their name to volts wagon that's volts as in electricity. Now volkswagen's id for is the company's only electric model in the us market so far but the company is planning to build more and said that all future electric models would come emblazoned with their new name volts wagon now in eighty-three rolled company. Suddenly changing. Its moniker is suspicious right. But the name change announcement was so deadpan that it got picked up by the likes of cnbc. The bbc and the verge and all that publicity had an impact on the company's stocks. Volkswagen stock prices rose nearly five percent on the day the statement was released the ap reported but only hours later. A company spokesman confirmed that the name change was an early april. Fool's joke a joke. I should say that didn't quite land sea. Volkswagen isn't exactly held up as a model of corporate transparency. You may remember that in two thousand fifteen. The company installed deceptive software in its vehicles to cheat on government emissions tests that move launched a five-year fiasco. That cost volkswagen thirty. Five billion dollars led to the recall of millions of vehicles so volkswagen's been trying to dust off. Its image since then which makes this joke. Well puzzling to say the least and the us securities and exchange commission doesn't seem to have that much of a sense of humor. Manipulating the stock market is of course illegal. An even though it's not certain that manipulation was the intent behind volkswagen statement. The joke certainly swelled stock prices which could bring regulators knocking. But there's another automaker who's been there done that and is thriving that would be tesla which has in the past straight up to see the public in two thousand eighteen founder elon. Musk tweeted that. He had the funding to take tesla. Private stock prices surged ten percent. But it was later revealed that actually there was no such funding. Musket has company each over twenty million dollars in penalties to the sec. But today it seems like things are working out for tesla their social media the spotlight and their electric models are in last month. Wall street journal columnist dan. Neil took volkswagen the new. Id four for a spin and said tesla has nothing to worry about the id. Four is five years behind the comparable tesla you'll wrote and the engineering betrays a premature rush to market harsh words for volkswagen. Which of course has been angling of late to compete directly with tesla. Both automakers plan to open new european factories for their electric vehicles and volkswagen group

United Airlines Plans To Begin Training Pilots at New Academy

"United Airlines says it plans to hire 10,000 pilots over the next decade, and half of them will come from its own new pilot training Academy. MPR's David Schaper reports from Chicago. The airline is also committing to making its pilot ranks much more diverse. Airlines were facing a long term pilot shortage before the pandemic, and they still do now. Even though air travel Amanda's only beginning to recover so United has developed its own flight school, and spokesman Josh Earnest says the airline wants half of new pilot recruits to be women or people of color. In some ways, what's really important about this is that this commitment will allow us to open the door. To an exciting and lucrative career opportunity that has previously not been available to earlier generations of women and people of color, at least to many of them. United is offering scholarships and working out outreach. It is now accepting applications to the pilot academy.

Welcome you with weekend from the BBC World Service. My name's Paul Henley coming up later, the politics of social integration. Why the Danish government is keen on forcing parents in high immigrant neighborhoods to put their toddlers into daycare centers. If you have children with very very poor language skills. Very very poor social skills who have been isolated for five years before coming to school. Then we need to help these parents to realize that it's important to learn dangerous. It's important to get acquainted with Dana society. We'll discuss the pros and cons of that policy soon. Now, this wouldn't be weekend. Without the presence of two guests to give their personal perspective on the news and issues we discussed today, I'm joined for the rest of the program by Chitra Nagarajan, who's Nigerian writer and human rights activists. She's in our Legoff off studio and Matthew green is here with me in London, British writer and. Journalist for Reuters. Now Chitra welcome as a guest on this program. You've been an interviewee already when you talked about a literature, and theology that you put together how would you describe your your job these days, give us some idea of where you're coming from who you are good morning. Good morning. Mathew. It's a pleasure to be on weekends again. So I live and work in my degree in northeast Nigeria. I spend my time working on issues of human rights and peace building in northeast, Nigeria and then increasingly in the other countries of the Lake Chad basin. There are issues of human rights where you live onto. Yes. Unfortunately, as in many parts of the world, unfortunately. But I think it's fair to say that most of the guests on this program tend to come from well more metropolitan areas with perhaps fewer social problems than you come across on a daily basis. Tell us the kind of issues that you tackle. Well, I mean, no, 'this Nigeria has been experiencing conflict now for a long time. It'll be ten years next year since. Since we have seen violence in in the states of the northeast, and this is violence between armed opposition groups, commonly known as Graham and the Nigerian states, and then in the last couple of years, the other countries in the region as well to the work that I do really looks at promoting and protecting the human rights of women in particular, but also working with civilians on ways that they can protect themselves from an engaging with hepatitis as well, so am I spent a lot of time talking to you security agencies, the Nigerian military as well as community militias on human rights international humanitarian law answering protection and ways they can reduce the likelihood of harming civilians during the course of their operations. Welcome to the program. Chitter live from LEGO says Chitra Nagarajan much more to come from her ass from Matthew green, Matthew you've worked in some thirty countries for the for. Times and for Reuters over the years, and you've lived in Lagos haven't you? That's right. It's wonderful to be hearing from Nigeria. I was back in Lagos about a year ago myself for a couple of weeks, and I do miss the place, although I was disappointed to find that after returning officer about a ten year absence. That was still notable shortage of electricity. If any progress is being made on that Chitra, but it'll be great to return to Lego's one day and see the place lit up. What does that mean? So several hours a day without telling. Yeah. Yeah. No long long powercuts there. But it was fascinating on my last. Visit I I went to report on a small company called rent sauce founded by Nigerian entrepreneur who's working to install solar power across Lagos, which is long overdue, but really holds out the promise of a real revolution in energy in Nigeria. So it's exciting times as well. In the city Matthew urine, author of aftershock, which is a story of surviving pieces. You put it it's about post traumatic stress disorder is it. Yeah. That's right. I spent many years working in conflict zones. As a journalist including in Iraq and Afghanistan, but then a few years ago, I returned to the UK to rights aftershock, which documents the struggles of British military veterans and their families looking for ways to recover and heal from the trauma of war. And it was an amazing journey. I discovered some people doing some really fantastic work life saving work. A lot of people who although they've been through extraordinarily painful experiences had really come out the other side. And I think shows that former survivors where the military all civilian can make remarkable recoveries when they give him the right kind of support. Thank you, his office topic on the program today, the plastic straw, a little bit wider than that. But it's an example of something that could be consigned to history in European Union countries soon on Wednesday, the European parliament voted in favor of a ban on single use plastic products that would apply to such items as straws plates cutlery and cotton buds, which make up more than seventy percent of waste material in the world's oceans other plastics such as drink bottles will have to be collected separately and recycled at a rate of ninety percent by twenty twenty-five under EU law speaking during the debate before the vote the Irish MVP look mean Lukman Flanagan described encountering his first plastic cutlery in the nineteen seven. And he said nobody thought then that it will prove to be such a threat to the environment. At the time. We were worried our main worry on this planet was a nuclear holocaust little did. We realize that the plastic fork and spoon that I had in my hand was actually going to turn out to be more dangerous. And I say that now even with who we have in the White House by twenty fifty would be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish by wish one hundred thirty different marine species known to have ingested plastic could ban like this work elsewhere in the world, specifically could it work in the US? Peter Morici is an American economist and business professor at the university of Maryland. I asked him if he welcomed the legislation from the European parliament puzzled as to what the objective is if it's to reduce carbon that's fine. But you have to consider that a sweeping ban may cause producers or manufacturers to come up with solutions that are. Even more harmful to the environment. Let's take airplanes. There's a lot of plastic inside the cabins of airplanes that may never get reused is that single use. And what will it be replaced by you medal of some kind also and takes resources to make that metal just like it does plastic takes energy, and it's heavier as a consequence that may cause the airplane. Take get less gas mileage so to speak and carbon footprint. So those people who carry around a metal knife and fork in their bag when they go to work. So they don't have to use a plastic one. They're doing the wrong thing are they I'll I know things. So I don't think that's quite the same thing. I think avoiding the use of disposable plastic is not a bad thing to do. However, I don't know that just banning it outright. Across the board is necessarily going to achieve the most desirable results while it's not outright is it. It's just in the European Union and Chile that's a good start. No, it's outright inside the European Union. What I'm saying is that alternatives will have to be found, for example, if you don't use a plastic bottle, then you'll have to use a glass bottle. How much energy goes into the use of that glass bottle? How much energy goes into either recycling or destroying it in the landfill? One has to consider what the alternative is for each use of a single use plastic. I thought the whole point was that they were single use plastics and a glass bottle. You can take back your shop and refill and used as many times as you want at home. I mean that is the perceived wisdom, surely well, not necessarily. I haven't seen many returnable bottles in the United States had about twenty five years. Well, there are a lot modem in Europe. I can tell you. Well, that's fine. Also costs money those bottles up in use them. Again. It's not that single use plastics should be used. It's not that getting rid of them isn't a good thing. But you have to be careful about being sweeping. I'm just curious as to what the alternative to sweeping is. I mean, if you introduced legislation to ban single use plastics, it either bands or a dozen is it a good thing. Or is it not in your opinion? I don't think it's a good thing to have a sweeping ban should such measures be expanded. So that it becomes written into global trade deals that European Union. That is certainly not good for the world. I would like to see fewer single use plastics out there. Right. So what's your plastic forks or are going into restaurants, and being handed styrofoam cups and things of this nature? However, one was has to be judicious about this and think it through you have to be careful about how you go about this because you might end up using more energy rather than less. It depends on the energy use of the alternative. That's the problem. Right. You decide to just blindly throw a regulation on something. This is a good example of why is Brexit is this kind of unthinking mandate added parcels that as far as people to vote the way they do. But surely it boils down to whether it's better to use reusable items again, and again or to use plastic items if the science shows that you are damaging the environment less by not using plastic forks, surely there isn't much of a debate about it. Unless you represent the interests of plastic fork makers, I don't represent anyone's interest, by the way, I guess I've said over and over again to you getting rid of most single use plastics, probably makes pretty good sense. But getting rid of all, I don't know. And that's when bothers me about this legislation because they may be circumstances, which the alternative material actually causes more arms the environment because in the nature in the way, it's used Peter Morici who's an economist. And business professor at the univer- university of Maryland in the US. What did you make of that Chitra? Well, I understand what he's saying about having to look at the energy footprints of tentatives. But I do think that environment degradation and climate change that we're seeing in the world today if such a pressing issue, and we need. Sweeping urgent action at scale on this. Of course, looking at plastic is not new we've seen plastic bags being banned on the African continent, for example in Rwanda Kenya. Martiniere and Morocco. And of course across the world. We've also seen taxes on plastic bags. I think it's a very welcome development. My flight reservation is around the ban on plastic strollers in particular, and I've been reading the concerns from disability rights. Campaigners about this. And who talk about how many people with disabilities. Need plastic jaws in order to be able to drink liquids?.

"Um you can often than just by it from somewhere enter the code not have to reinstall again and keep going so for example that was with norton so you can go onto the newton's uk website choose which one you you want as a free downloads for trial if you happy with it then by that software from some way not necessarily semantics website themselves but may be from amazon old one of any number of other retired his and they're all deals of the you know if if you look at website cold haunt uk deals dot com and you search frantic vars you find that that will these deals pop up they know all up all the time but their upper a fair amount of the time since with looking out for it and the other thing to think about now is that a lot of these packages come with a multi device license that means that it won't miss seventy just protect upc but let's say you as tight the naughton as an example you can get one that will allow you to do five or even ten devices in a year pat i and those would include say a windows pc and apple mac android phone oil west tablets you know you you can actually cover the bulk of you'll devices to to die under one fee and then it becomes quite affordable when you look at it in that way and interestingly that difference between say the five license and the the the 10 device license can be as little as two pounds cry serve hatton you've got the situation where you get an extra 5 devices for for that and you know if you've got family members and so forth you you can shed them the only thing he says will run concurrently said they will they have the start date of the first installation ole ole ole the tape download so instead of paying around forty pounds you can certainly pay around twenty and sometimes around ten depending the deals at brown yeah have you you just look around have a look at the website that mentioned to you look on amazon be care.
