"Behavior is good for seven days. Beta access will be granted so again to me. It is a little bit ambiguous here as well. if driving behaviors good for seven days of that means the seven days preceding requesting the beta or if it has following requesting the beta I guess is following because it's probably asking permission to then track those metrics over the following week Instead of asking permission to then look at the history over the last seven days which could be either but my guesses. It's gonna look at the following day so we might see the blunt button on october. First we might see the first then roll of the expansion of the beta program on October eighth if my assessment of both of those tweets has cracked but obviously There could be some variability there so again. This is gonna be it you know. It sounds like here. If driving behavior is good for seven days they'd access will be granted. It doesn't seem like it's going to be extremely limited. Uh so seems to me to be really good news for people that are you know obviously very anxious to get get the beta and try it out so exciting even if it is a little bit slower still exciting to see some progress here Just quick update here in terms of efficacy and norway.

"In london. For the monitor. Canadians have watched concerned. -ly as political polarization has divided the united states but centrism appears to be winning the day in canada's national elections for many canadians the campaign ahead of the snap elections on september twentieth has been full of partisan spite perhaps never more clearly than when a member of the right people's party of canada through gravel at prime minister justin trudeau on the campaign trail earlier this month but political analysts.

This race has been one of the least contentious in recent history as conservatives in the united states and several european countries have moved further right to capture votes in canada the conservatives have tracked to the center and the mainstream parties have remained united in the country's biggest challenge fighting the pandemic everybody in politics right now. We'll tell you that the tone has become nastier and coarser says maxwell cameron a political science professor at the university of british columbia. I think one of the things. That's interesting about this election is that it's not really a particularly polarized election across a wide range of issues. The story was reported by sarah miller. Yana in toronto for the monitor. Why do opposition minded russians vote in the elections because despite the state's tight controls over parties and the dirty tricks of the ruling united russia voting can make a difference. Russia officially declares itself to be a democracy russian media. Cover the campaigns much as the western press covers elections and just about everyone agrees that the elections do matter but while fourteen parties covering a wide spectrum from left to right will be competing for seats in russia's lower house of parliament in september nineteenth election. Opposition parties are carefully managed by the russian state. The gamut of loyal opposition parties is genuine and much of the criticism expressed by them can be as biting as in any western democracy but via electoral controls individual pressure candidates or political dirty tricks. The state keeps any party or candidate who becomes a significant threat to the ruling. United russia. Party from success at the pulse. Still opposition candidates believe running as worthwhile little by little. Even small drops of water can wear down. A stone says oleg mannequin a candidate for the liberal yabunaka party. We do not need any more revolutions in this country that leaves us only with gradual democratic methods to bring about the changes we need and we've seen some small local victories. That suggest it can happen. This story was reported by fred. Wear arkhangelsk russia for the monitor during economic hard times one role that government can play is shock absorber. New census bureau data show the difference. That congress's quick assistance.

We remember how safe they made us feel and darkened bedroom or how much fun we had zooming them around the house as if they were flying and yet no matter what we all grow up and leave childish things behind but thanks to one man's impulsive decision. we learned. We don't have to let the past slip away. Not only can we hold onto it but we can share it with the people we love and keep that joy alive for generations to come harry. Colbourn was born in birmingham england in eighteen eighty seven. When he was eighteen years old he moved to ontario canada where he studied to become a veterinarian surgeon upon receiving his degree he settled in winnipeg in manitoba but duty would eventually call. Harry joined the military when world war one became too great to ignore and he hopped a train to quebec for basic training. It was on his way to the camp when he encountered an odd sight. A hunter had killed a black bear and taken. It's cub to sell at a local trading post. Harry gave them twenty dollars and in exchange he took possession of the bear cub which he named winnipeg after the town where he'd been living. His plan was to raise winnipeg for a little while before releasing her back into the forest. Unfortunately harry's plans change very quickly. Winnipeg became a hit among other troops. They played with her and let her stay in the bunks where. She slept under harry's kat that she grew however winnipeg got too big to live indoors and was relegated to outside like a kind of watch bear for the soldiers. The more time they spend together the harder it became for harry to let go. He in winnipeg had grown close. So close that. When he was ordered to go back to england to fight on the western front he refused to release the bear back into the wild he instead snuck her into the ship with the other troops together. They traveled to the second canadian. Infantry brigade camp near stonehenge in england. Harry let her roam free for a while they were there. She enjoyed playing on the large stones but he soon understood that he would have to give her up. There was just no way for winnipeg to go all the way with him to the front

That's according to an analysis of forty five conversation threads on criminal forums. these forums are where initial access brokers claim to have hijacked into a company and are now selling that access to ransomware groups.

You click on the plus sign in the upper right corner, then you click uncombined speakers.

All those speakers have to be online on the same network and in the same room for that to work. Once you click on that, then you click next in the upper right corner. You then choose. And this is pretty cool. You then choose which of those speakers you want to be the left channel and which of those speakers you want to be. The right channel. And then when you do that, you click next and then you give it a name. So this group of speakers will have a name. That way, when you asked for music, you can use the name of that group to specify that it be played on that group of speakers. You can choose one of the names that are suggested, or you can create a customized name, then you click save, and then you are essentially good to go and that. How you do it? That's a stereo pair with or without a.

One of these, I am very intrigued by because this is a teacher that has been available in the United States for quite some time now. And now it is finally available here in Canada. This is called in skill purchasing. So what that means is that now developers that are creating skills, have the option of actually selling to Canadians through the skill additional options or features or other products through the skill. So essentially, I'll give you an example. A skill may have a series of sounds that you can listen to. And so a lot of those sounds are free but if you want the expanded, Sound pack or if you want sounds, for example, without any ads or commercials you have the option of through the skill, purchasing that Premium Edition of the skill and this is wonderful because it gives the consumer, the option of purchasing those, those pieces of content that are providing some added value. And for the developer's side, it's a way for them to monetize their skills and and turn that helps grow the whole ecosystem. If you will, when it comes to Amazon Echo, devices and Lexie. So yes, Amazon just announced that took International expansion of the in skilled purchasing is live and specifically. They said that they have pushed us out to India and Canada at this time.

"Pacific so long if you were interested in picking up and reserving you're free seat, you can just go to the voice Den. All right. So let's get to this. I got a whole bunch of products to tell you about and some of the sales and at the time of this recording I'm aware of some of these sales and I'm going to share the ones that I'm aware of with you. But of course, there are a lot of sales that are going to come up the day of and by the time this recording comes out. I'm afraid I just won't have you know, I won't have the those latest sales to tell you at this time. However, what I will tell you is that I do have an affiliate link and if you go to a l e x a in Canada. See a page will basically be taken to the Amazon. CA website, but they're primed a homepage where you can then access all of the sales now, I will be mentioning a number of those affiliate links throughout this episode as I just did and if you're not familiar with with what an affiliate link is it basically means that I do get a small commission. If you use one of those links there is no additional cost to you whatsoever. The Experience on Amazon is exactly. Yep. As it would be if you hadn't used legally link, the only difference is if you go there it gets tagged that I referred you there and then I get a small commission and it really just goes to help support the work that I'm doing here. So if you choose to use one of these affiliate links, whether it's now for Prime day or in the future then obviously, I really appreciate that very much and I thank you very much. And generally what I've done is each of the affiliate links r a l e x a in Canada. CA it's always thought that slash and the name of the product that we're talking about or prime day will take you to the prime day home page as I mentioned or just Prime take you to the site where you can register for a Prime account off because that's the first key thing to note when it comes to Prime day Prime Day sales are only available to Prime subscribers. And so if you are a prime subscriber already, you are set you are good to go home. If you are not then certainly you can go to that link and register to become a prime subscriber now. Typically Amazon does have a a. Where it is a free trial and so long Take advantage of it this time around and take advantage of the sales as well. Okay, so let's get to some of these really incredible Prime Day deals. Now interestingly Amazon actually had some pre-primed sales that went on that are carrying over into Prime date. And so those ones I can specifically tell you about because they're actually live at the time that I'm recording. This here is the first deal which is an incredible incredible deal with this is the third generation Echo. Now, if you've been following along you may know that just recently in the last couple of weeks Amazon announced the fourth generation of the echo. So obviously, they're trying to get rid of the 3rd Generation month to be honest. The form factor is different terms of the echo 3rd generation and the fourth generation and the fourth generation Echo..

"Today want to talk about Newt Music option that Amazon has just made available here in Canada. Now, the music options have a little bit confusing I think because there's Amazon music there is Amazon music unlimited, which is a paid service on top of your music. If you have music if you are a prime subscriber, you get music, but you do have to pay for the music unlimited but here's the new thing. So beyond that, there is now something known as Amazon Music H D. so high definition music, better quality music and. For those of you that want the stats. Basically, what it means is if you subscribe to Amazon Music Hd you get sixteen bit forty, four point, one kilohertz music, which is basically CD quality sound stream to your device. So it's a big leap up in terms of the quality. They also have about a million songs that are considered ultra high definition, which is better than CD quality. Again, if you're interested in the stat, it's twenty four. Bit Sound with one hundred, ninety, two kilohertz. So this jumps up now. They are offering a ninety day free trial. If you're interested in the best quality sound that you can get after the ninety day free trial, the price is either fourteen, ninety, nine per month if you're not a prime subscriber or it is a twelve, ninety, nine per month if you are a prime member. Just you know there is also a family plan available and that is a nineteen, ninety, nine per month. So those are the options for you. If you truly want the highest quality sound to listen on your devices then this is what is available. Now, the link to have a look at it if you'd like to check out the free trial is a l. e. x. a in Canada, dot ca slash music H D that's affiliate link interviews it. Then, I appreciate that very much. You can try to for ninety days for free. So if you do try to let me know how you like it. Let me know if you notice a big difference in the audio quality and Have Fun with it. All right.

"Four Wednesday and today I want to tell you about a report that came out from voice. Bought DOT AI. And if you don't know voiced by they're actually a really fantastic publication that covers all voice technology. Not Just Lexi but what they were reporting is that there's a new data that showing that these skills launched in two thousand nineteen were the lowest number When you compare it to any of the year dating back to two thousand and sixteen th the reason I want to highlight. This is because they also did publish some Canadian numbers and I just WanNa give you a sense of what. The numbers are in Canada in terms of the number of skills. That are in Canada right now. So this data is now about a year old but this is what they're reporting and they say that in January twenty nineteen the total count of lexi skills and Canada was twenty two thousand eight hundred and seventy three now about halfway through the year so in July of twenty nine thousand nine hundred the total count was was twenty five thousand one hundred and ten so if I do my math right. That means that we're looking at about an increase of give or take but roughly twenty five hundred skills between January of two thousand nineteen in July of two thousand nine hundred and they reported the number of skills that are out as of January twenty twenty and that number was twenty five thousand nine hundred fifty. So that's only about eight hundred or so increase in the number of skills in the last six months of two thousand nineteen why that is. We're not totally sure. It could be that. There was a reduction in the incentives to US developers who are launching US skills. And if there's a reduction in incentives then they may also be less likely to be producing skills for Canada as well so this may have an impact on the skills that are coming to Canada. It's hard to say it's interesting in its data. That'll be interesting to continue to follow and see if there's any uptake on this going forward. I still obviously think that Lexi is just gaining traction when it comes to users so we'll have to keep an eye on this interesting stuff. Hope you're having a great day and oh I just want to remind you I do have a contest going on right now for creating a logo for my personal brand. Dr Terry Fisher.

"Hello there it's Dr Terry Fisher here and I wanNA tell you about a new skill that is available in Canada and it is by me by voice. I as you know I am a physician and with all the craziness going on in the world right now with regards to the krona virus. I thought that it would be useful to have a simple skill that you can speak to to get some general information about the krona virus to essentially tell you little bit about some of the things that people are asking lots of questions about now. I'll tell you right up front. It's not a complicated skill is not an overly complex killed. Certainly not gonNA make diagnosis. And it's and I have to be clear about. This is not a substitution for professional medical device. It is general information skill. However if you want to learn a little bit about the transmission or the symptoms or what you can do to prevent yourself from from or reduce the risk of getting krona virus or some general information. Then you may enjoy having with it. the skill is called Corona virus dock and you would just simply say the magic word lexi enable or open corona virus dock and. It will guide you through. You can say if you find it useful and of course I'd I'd really appreciate it if you share it out and spread it through the word of Mouth. Maybe spread. It wasn't the right term when we're talking about crony virus nevertheless if you do find it useful it would be very much appreciated if you could share it out because what. I'm hoping is that just helps to educate the public a little bit more about the corona virus. Take away some of the fear around it and also take some of the pressure off of the healthcare facilities if the general public is a little bit more informed about it all right so hopefully. That's helpful for you. Check it out corona virus dock and I'd love to hear your feedback as well. Thanks very much and I'll talk to you tomorrow.

"Hey Dr Terry Fisher here and let's get right to the flash briefing for today. Here is a really really good piece of news for Canadians. I think this may help us to get a lot more skills in Canada than we currently have and this is a little bit of news that I want to let you know about. I was made aware that Amazon has just change their back end. When it comes to developers setting up their skills he C- previously when when a developer launched a skill they had to select which locale they wanted to be an and most of them of course have been set up to be launched in the United States. And what a lot of developers just actually didn't realize is that they have to opt in to have the skill launch and Canada. As well and I can tell you from personal experience. I've spoken with developers and they're quite shocked to hear that the skill is not available in Canada. Anyway the good news is that Amazon has just made a feature available in the back end when developers are creating their skills that allows them to just select a little check box and that will then push the skill to all the English speaking locales. Now that's good because it's going to help the developers to get these skills into Canada. More readily the downside. There's a downside is if you know. Developer wants to customize something for a country. It's GonNa be hard to do that. They won't be able to use this feature nevertheless. I think this is a good thing. It's going to help us Canadians. When a lot of the skills are not in Canada and now it really is as simple as a developer. Just choosing check box and the skill will come to Canada. So let's keep our fingers crossed that we see more and more of the skills that we want here. I think it's great. Good move by Amazon. And we'll see what happens right and hopefully we'll see more skills in Canada. Remember there's the contest going on right now to win echo show five. You can help me. Design LOGO FOR THE BRAND.

Jeff they've got a number of different features built into their their technology and they describe themselves as the Google maps of cooking. Which actually I think is pretty good. Good some of the things that they say so. They say that they can take written recipes and turn those into conversations so it can actually teach you and walk you through how to prepare recipes. They can also help you discover new recipes with interactive content based on your personalization of what you'd like what you don't like Cetera. They can provide shop -able recipes so that you can identify and create ingredient lists that then you can use and it actually can act as a meal tracker as well so pretty cool.

"She. Hey there, it's Terry Fisher here with your flash briefing. Four may twenty second and today, I want to give you a little bit of food for thought I recently came across an article, and it's called why leading Lexi spy on everything. You say could be good for your health, and this was published on the IT world Canada, our website, and this is particularly coming on the heels of some flash briefings that I've done about privacy and the reason podcast I talked to our privacy settings. And this article quotes and hasn't been formation that dives into some of the research that, somebody by the name of Dr poppy crummy is doing. She's a chief scientist at Dolby laboratories, and she's a neuroscientist and what's very interesting is that Lexi literally could be good for your health, if we are allowing Lexi to listen to us throughout the day. So how does that work? Well, when we speak, there are certain parameters in our speech that are more subtle than just the word. Words that we say, for example, Lexi could theoretically detect changes in the speed of my speech in the intonation it could detect changes in the cadence, the tone, flew, the fluidity, and so on. And how does that help? Well, what's very interesting is we're finding more and more that the way we speak is reflective of our health. There are certain companies that have done studies that show a correlation between the way, people speak and the risks of coronary artery disease and even more. So between the way somebody speaks, if they have congestive heart failure, and the risk of actually dying. And so if we allow Lexi in the future to listen to what we're saying. Lexi theoretically could start to detect changes in their speaks that might be an indication of emotional problems. Perhaps depression anxiety, it could be watching or listening for changes in our actual cognition things, such as dimension parking. Sen's alzheimer's. These are all things that I believe are going to be identifiable through speech. Technology, invoice technology, fascinating stuff.
