Mint Mobile launches cheap unlimited cell plan
"You know. So many of us per stretched and we're trying to make our budgets last through the month at a time that for many people incomes are down. So one area I'd like you to look at is how to attack your monthly expenses and one that a lot of just pay because that's what we pay is what we pay for cell phone service. So I want to give you a couple of choices on cell phone service that comes with unlimited data from two different companies one geared towards an individual paying for his or her own bill. In the second for people that are joining together with others. On a plan to save money. Let's start with the one for individuals. There's a company that runs really cute TV ads called met mobile. There was. So as a reseller, they bake pass the from the big three cell phone players, and then they sell their own branded service under the meant mobile name. Meant. Mobile is doing a deal right now on unlimited data plan where you've got unlimited talk text and data for a flat thirty dollars a month. But there's some hoops you have to jump through. So let's say you WanNa do this thirty dollars a month plan you could be on one that's significantly higher with others if you're doing unlimited data. What you do is you pay meant mobile for the first three months when you port your number and so you give them ninety bucks and it covers your cell phone service for the next three months. You hit the end of those three months. If you're happy with mobile, you can then by the next year from them at the thirty dollars a month. So, Ye end up having to give them three hundred sixty bucks. But then you know you have no cell phone bill for the whole next year is for the quality of the network with mobile. I never get complaints about that. Now that I've said that Oh hear from people who have complaints, but it is an alternative that can give you freedom from worrying about data overages. or data caps and no you're paying a flat thirty bucks. The other alternative is from verizon discount on a lot of people don't know verizon has a discount operator and people known for years. that. T mobile has metro. And Cricket is at and T.'s discounter but horizon acts like visible doesn't exist. But visible does exist is verizon's discounter and they have a plan called party pay. It's designed for two people together three people together or four people together. On a cell phone plan, but with a twist. If you just get a buddy or a relative or whatever to join you on visibles party Pay Plan Each of you were billed individually. So one person doesn't have to pay the whole bill and then chased the other people to pay them their portion of the bill each month. All they got to do is stay with visible together on their party. Pay Plan. So, two people get unlimited talk unlimited taxed unlimited data for thirty five dollars a month each three people, thirty dollars a month each and you got four people together twenty five dollars a month each. Again this is RISA NHS discount honor. You won't see it on Verizon's website. If you went to a verizon store, they wouldn't know what you were talking about. If you call verizon customer no service, they wouldn't know what it was. You have to go to the website visible dot com. And then you're in the money in the savings on for is network on a variety plan, but from their discount brand called visible.
How can I increase traffic to my tarot reading website?
"Hi Chris My name is Daniele from Centennial Colorado. I'm actually new to the show but very excited to incorporate the podcast side-hustle broke into some ideas have been working on my side hustle is doing Tarot into readings. It's something I've been playing with for a few years and I've done some live readings that different groups and I get great feedback I would love. To have people book sessions more regularly. I set everything up I've not add it to my website I have link to a page where they can vote their own sessions. I've created a newsletter I've got testimonials I've posted on social media and crickets. So my question is asking if you have any tips or insights on getting people to see my site and to book sessions. I would really appreciate it. I know that being seen is going to be one of the best ways. I did just book foods at a local metaphysical fair for. February. But anything besides that. If you can give me insights, I would love it and I look forward to hearing from you and thank you so much. Danielle, what's up? Thank you so much for listening and for calling in as well. Now, this is a great topic because I said. So many of our listeners essentially have the same question. For whatever their business is and you know just just to be clear first and foremost there's not a pithy answer and there's one thing I can say thirty seconds it's going to solve the problem. The. Question. That Danielle is asking, how can I get more customers? This is not just something that a lot of side hustlers went to. No I mean this is something that a lot of small business owners and executives at major corporations want to know and many of those big companies have entire sales and marketing teams devoted to customer acquisition Seo. Sometimes, they pay agencies a lot of money to come up with a creative campaign all in hopes of doing the same thing essentially that Danielle and maybe you wants to do, which is bring more traffic to your website or otherwise acquire more customers. So. On the third, way calls that I've been doing a pretty much every other Thursday for anybody who's interested in the third group model that I wrote about in the money tree, which if you don't know what that is, it's essentially. People like you who are all trying to start an income generating project I do these calls and we spent a lot of time looking at different situations and brainstorming a group about individuals. So for Y'all specifically like if we were going to call in and look at this, we probably pull up her website. I took a quick little look. Her website consists almost entirely of a way to book her to hire her for her Tarot reading. Service. which is a good thing. Of course, that's what she wants to do but my concern, therefore, my suggestion unless you wanted to do that unless you already knew who I want to hire on Y'all already pre sold on it there's not really any reason to go to her site and you also probably wouldn't find it unless she told you about it or somebody else told you about it. So my number one suggestion again, recognizing that this is a long term goal should probably try. Some other things too but my number one suggestion would be to add some more helpful content to this website. Give people something for free give them a reason to visit the site. So I don't know a lot about Terro- what do I need to know what is essential? What are the top ten surprising facts about it? What are the misconceptions about it who can benefit from a reading? Do I need to prepare somehow mean those are just some of the questions that I had. Just kind of thinking talking my head maybe even. A list of resources which I do say she has a she has some resources in links on our site, but maybe just kind of building that out more be a little bit more helpful than just hire me and not to say, you shouldn't have to hire me there. That should be there should be front and center. Absolutely. But if you want to grow your website ultimately, you're gonNA need to provide people reasons to come to your website besides just that one reason of hiring you.

When will the unwanted robocalls stop
"I'm curious. If you've noticed any improvement in spam calls, Robo calls all of that. Supposedly, it's been taking care of. And I think it kind of has now get ready because the silly season is upon us. You may remember a couple of years ago and four years ago six years ago when. you know all the campaigns spun up. And you would get calls every day from the political campaigns and so forth. I think. My guess is at least it's been my experience of curious if it's yours, they're not calling as much as they are texting. Now I get texts like crazy tons of texts. all the time many of them panicky. Money, we're running out of money got to send US money a lot of that. You can only laugh there's no as far as a way to block text I guess you could say stop. The FCC has implemented this technology called stir and shaken, which sounds like a james bond recipe for Martinez is in fact. What they call a caller ID authentication protocol. And They have till June, thirtieth the next year to to implement it but I think some of the carriers are already starting to implement the idea is. When a call is made. It stirred. That is the originating network attached authentication information to it, and then when received by the receiving network could be the same network could be a different one. it shaken. Both. Which means they verify? It's it's It's origination. See if you're GONNA DO SPAM Robo calls or spam calls of any kind you don't really same with spam email. You know really want anybody to know who was the real origination because then they could block you. Notice has spammers changed a phone number all the time. They usually these days try to use your area code sometimes even your local exchange. So the first six digits are the ones you recognize which is I think designed to make you think maybe it's your kid calling or the kids school calling or your doctor or somebody you know you just don't know that number. So they're hoping you'll pick up and then it goes you've just won a trip to. Nowhere. Going, maybe that's what's killing them. The timeshares and the trips. That's no good anymore is maybe that's what's killing them. There's also most of the carriers now are implementing A. Spam blocking technology I. Know T mobile just turned there's on. And and I've been using for some time apple has a feature which like the iphone I think that you can do this on Android to. Seem to remember where you say if I if that phone call is not coming from a number I, know. From my phonebook. Just. Send it to voicemail. You know and if it's important, they'll leave a message and then you can add them to your phone book if you want to hear from them from now, I like that feature. So my phone hardly rings anymore. But then I'm also I'm not a big phone caller either. I prefer other means of communication mostly none. Don't bother be it. I won't bother you how about that? What is that a deal? Okay. I call my mom once a week she's hard to get a hold of now. To mom you WANNA facetime because we usually facetime. That's the other thing. I don't use a phone as much as I'll use facetime or on Google side duo, or of course, we're all using zoom in meet in teams and all the different video calling things. That's not really a phone call. That's you know that's like a data connection. I feel like it's close to Funke plus phone call with pictures. But Mom doesn't really answer when I. A texture I because you know I, don't want to surprise her. And then you know I did, yes I'm feeling sad now. She's getting me back for all the Times I didn't call her. Mom You WANNA facetime. Crickets. So the chat room. So you saying you're still getting calls from the Marriott at least every other week says Burke. I feel like I feel like the call screenings gotten good. Now remember spam email was such a problem it's not going away. Still. The vast majority of Internet. Email traffic is spam junk mail. But we but the systems to block have gotten so good now that you just rarely see it anymore right Most of the spam I see stuff I signed up for newsletters I signed up for maybe I gave him I signed up for something I gave my address and they said you, you WanNa get stuff from us and I forgot to say no one. It's mostly that we call it bacon. It's spam you asked for is baking. If you get spam, you didn't ask for that spam. Of definitely spam. Not Related to hormones pork shoulder product the Hormel people would like me mention that. They actually allow us to use the term spam at first they were like that's our brand name for a product. Can you not call? Junk mail spam. For why we call it uses that's a terrible name. You see unsolicited commercial e-mail. Who's this I got some news today yet seen no spam just works hormel finally gave up then. All right fine. Call it spam, but just don't confuse it with our fine pork shoulder products. So I won't. I won't. It's delicious. It's not like junk email at all not in any respect. So it's gotten better hasn't it? This? The junk calls. Now and just get a lot of junk texts. Solution for that yet. You know where spam came from right Monty Python. If you ever want to go if you want some fun go to youtube if you haven't seen it in the spam skit. Where the they're, they're coming to breakfast and everything's got spamming it. A lot of spam spam takes over the whole skip pretty soon, the singers commencing Spam Anti Spam, Wonderful Spam. That's the Hormel pork shoulder product they're talking about there but somebody's united just like the junk email that multiplies. We'll get. So, they call it spam and A term was born.

A Hidden Side of Police Abuse
"In response to weeks of protests across the country, police departments are starting to change in New York. For example, disciplinary records for the NYPD are finally going to be made public and last week. New York City, police. Commissioner Dermott Shea made announcement about the NYPD'S ANTI-CRIME UNITS UNDERCOVER COPS who tend to be involved in police shootings. Effective immediately we will be transitioning those units roughly six hundred people citywide. Into a variety of assignments including detective bureau. neighborhood, policing and other assignments. When he made that announcement. said that it was part of an outdated model policing in that they generally are much more focused on intelligence. This is twenty first century policing. Intelligence. Data. Shot Spotter. Video Make no mistake. This is a seismic shift in the culture of how the NYPD polices disgraced, city. It it gives you a sense of. How a lot of the focus is on sort of individual officers on the street, but increasingly young PD's focus is on surveillance, and it has been for a long time. On Hell, story starts almost two decades ago the years just after the nine eleven attacks. Nine eleven, because it happened in New York has had a very long shadow and fundamentally changed. How many communities view the police department? Nine eleven not only to look to automate in. Sharing between different federal agencies, it also tried to turn local police departments into sort of the eyes and ears of intelligence on the ground in major cities, so it became a really important time for police permits to start to view themselves as counter. Terrorism agencies in that perspective is also true to this day. So unhealthy after nine eleven when this technology really expanded. was there a sense of? Push back. was there a sense that this was controversial that there were these growing NYPD dragnets of both Cameras and investigations and wiretaps that that seemed to be targeting regular New Yorkers who might not have been guilty of anything at all, so there's always been pushback from impacted communities and from civil liberties, advocates, but. It goes to show the effectiveness of the police department in the influence of the police department where a lot of the concerns were allayed by saying. This is going to empower us to catch terrorists in that terrorism label really. Calms a lot of fears for many because they thought well, these are tools that are only going to be used against the most dangerous people, but in reality was never limited to counter terrorism in the first place. It was just presented as a counter ripped terrorism tool. The most notorious example of NYPD surveillance was the illegal spying on Muslim New Yorkers after nine eleven. The NYPD sent informers to take photos inside mosques. They infiltrated Muslim student groups at local colleges. Undercover cops, twelve bookstores, restaurants and hookah bars. Even played cricket. The group was called the demographics unit. But until the Associated Press revealed its work. NYPD denied it existed. Now the demographics unit is gone, but the police departments post nine eleven surveillance infrastructure remains. Everything, the police know shoveled into a giant database called the domain awareness system. That includes audio from gunshot detectors, two billion photos of license plates, hundred million summonses, eleven, million arrests, two million warrants and thirty days of video from nine thousand cameras. How will that information gets crunched? We don't really know. And some of the things we do know suggest the NYPD could use more oversight. And, that's where the post doc comes in. To give you an example of the types of things that they've done. They use facial recognition systems to try to identify people that are suspected of crimes that were captured on. Let's say TV camera. So there is an example of someone who went into a CVs and stole a six pack of beer and the NYPD try to run a picture of that suspect through its facial recognition system. But it didn't return any results, so the NYPD thought well. You know that person looks a little bit like woody. Harrelson, so why don't we grab a photo of Woody Harrelson run that through the facial recognition system and see if we can find a match that Oh my God. How did this become public? The seems like something. The NYPD would never want to admit. So, one of the things that the post actors trying to do is to change the way that we ordinarily find out about surveillance abuses, which is costly public records, requests or through leaks to journalists in this case data that information came from an internal training guide that was obtained by Click Gharbia Georgetown that was turned over through a public records request. To what extent do we find out about these kind of technologies? When some kid ends up in court, and they say well, we know it was you because we have a witness identifying a dragon tattoo. We searched our database for a dragon tattoo and it turns out the. We knew you had one because you were stopped and frisked five years ago. Annie's Harlem. Only, it was that that linear. That would be great. Essentially does work that way most often. We don't get a sense of what tools are used at all. Sometimes the NYPD will enter into contracts with vendors that require them to be secretive, and they'll sign a nondisclosure agreement or a confidentiality clause that prevents them from disclosing the use of particular surveillance tools to the point where there are instances that police departments have dropped. Dropped charges against a particular person because they don't have to explain how they found them using the technology. That is still secret

I will say that you saying it did tennis right? Is means particularly lot because you know. I think. In terms of different kinds of readers, right, there's there's. Specific details if I'm reading something in if somebody gets a core detail wrong, which is not that big of a deal? It can be. It can break it for me. You know I'm Mike. Okay I can't do this anymore. Right I can't go down this road trusting this person and so I'm really happy to hear that I mean. Tennis is a big. I love the sport and we can also talk about that as well, but so that's great. Thank you I I. I wrote it with a certain kind of. Kind of propulsion in mind, right and I kinda wanted to be read that way, and then hopefully there other things. You know that you can go back to, or you can think about in ways in terms of how Raj operates in this in this book that can take a little bit more consideration, but you know in these in. These days. I want to read a book quickly. And I think in some ways I wanted to write a book that people could read quickly as well. The I say it's your talk. Not I feel like you're talking about a nonfiction book and everything's on the table. Right everything the next serve I feel I. Don't know what lessons You'd like me to take I don't know how much we can reveal here. Well, let's start you. To your character, so let's let's start there To to tennis fans, it is not spelled R. A. J. as your character is, but you know Raj is a name of relevance. Tennis fans You, you mentioned the details. You Got Right now. I think you're absolutely right. I think the second somebody writes about tennis of calls. A rally volley! We've got issues right? You did not do that this either was a studious research or else. You really have some grounding in tennis. What's what's your background sport? Yeah, you know so I so we came. We moved to America when I was eight years old. I lived in Bombay until I was eight owes a huge cricket fan. I played a ton of cricket. And we moved into A. Kind of an apartment complex when we arrived here and and. There was a tennis court. Right next to it where we're well. This was in the East Bay. This was east of. Glee in in in a in a city called San Pablo. and. You know. I think when I was like nine or ten years old, there was a man who would always come there in hidden serves like ten down the t ten out. Why ten down the T ten out wide, and I just started going down there and Collecting balls for him. And this! I think a you know him and his wife. They didn't have kids, and you know in a lovely gesture. At some point. He showed up with a tennis racket. And kinda showed me how to shift the grip for forehand and backhand, which was my first official lesson in the game and so. I so I started playing there. I played through high school and you know. and. Then I stopped playing the game for years. I stopped playing college. I didn't play it in Graduate School You know I moved my wife and I moved to new. York For five years where I had my first academic job. Getting Court New York as you know, is not an easy task, and so I have always kind of played the game, and then also I just love the game the pro game as well right, which is that I wasn't quite. Aware of the Borg McEnroe Connors era, but I think I really started watching you it with lendl real under at Burgh those are the I think in Michael Chang, so that was kind of mid might time said mid eighties moment. And so I've been kind of a fan of the sport in that way throughout the time and then. You know it's a great middle aged sport like I, love. I love the sociology of it. The player talking yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, so in both of those things, so that's why I'm just. It is as a kind of as a spectator as a player It's a one sport that I kind of gravitate towards the much.

Walking the South Downs Way in England
"Welcome amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about the south downs way. I'd like to welcome to the show. Aaron Miller from the Armchair Explorer podcast at Armchair Dash Explorer Dot Com. Who's come to talk to us about hiking? The south downs way in England Aaron. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much Chris. Pleasure to be here well Erin. Why are we talking about the south downs way? And can you put it on a map? I first of all I come from this area so I'm passionate about it. The South downs way is I think. One of the most beautiful but lesser-known hikes in England in the south of England. It's a hundred mile pot that stretches from east which is south of London right on the coast and it goes a hundred miles west to winchester and it's a beautiful route because it follows the spine of the south downs. The entire way on the south downs being a series of hills mountains hills. We're talking the south. Downs is beautiful gentle rolling hills that stretch of this way and into central English landscape. When you picture that quintessential Englishness that gentle rolling hills in arable farmland and old pubs little tiny villages and sheep and cows. Because you're on the spine of these down. This incredible view to one side to the south of you is the English Channel Sparkling Blue Sea in and then the other side is this wheeled. Which is this valley. That seems to stretch on forever. And IT'S COOKIE CUTTER. English field far as the I could say. And what makes this really special is? It's the national trail for south downs. National Park which is England's National Park. I think turns ten this year. So it's really a working landscape for like for your listeners. That come from the states or other places. I love the national parks in the states. I'm a huge fan right about them. A lot and most of them are obviously protecting. He's wild spaces. But the town's national park is a little different is actually a UNESCO biosphere reserve which is an award. That's not been given out to that many places and it's to do with the relationship between a land and its people and the sustainable relationship harmonious assistance between the ecosystem and the people that live there and have lived there and work that land for centuries thousands of years in fact. So what you get. Is this real sense of living landscape. It's not a national park which is devoid of people cut off from civilization It's a national park where people have existed for thousands of years the south downs way. In fact it's been walked for at least eight thousand years. Have records of that so when you in this room you really? Following in the footsteps of people that have worked for thousands of years. There's age hill forts. There's Bronze Age burial mounds. There's Roman history so you get a real sense of that as you will through an feel like that history and culture can imbue a place with debt when you're there you get the sense of this living landscape that is very typical of England's and very friendly in welcoming you're passing through these little villages and it's a little off the tortoiseshell because I don't think many international tourists do so when you coming off the trail to stay in these tubs or these different places overnight. You really stay in local One a drop down to this pub called the five bells and the local cricket teams in having their Green Tea and Gossiping About Pu. Bakes the best scones and all that sort of stuff. So it's really you're eavesdropping on this. Little World of the south of England and I think a lot of people when they think giving they think of the south of England to landscape inspired love artists over the years for everyone from Virginia Woolf in the blooms regroup to painters and musicians. So you really feel like you're walking through a landscape that has a lot of depth battle texture to it and there's a lot of great beer too so that was helps o'clock and one thing to know is when you talk about this being a national park in UK the UK Veasley being a smaller country than the US. Where I live doesn't have as many national parks. That only has fifteen so when you say. It's a national park. It's one of just over a dozen national parks in both England. Scotland and Wales altogether. So obviously fifteen are the fifteen best sites that were worthy of being named National Park. So where are we starting? So there's two options I started in Eastbourne which is on the south coast and made my way west from there and I did that for a special reason because when you do it that way there's a really great finish to the hike which I'll I'll keep his as a surprise for example a Lotta people choose to do it the other way round. It's the same elevation same difficulty. I think a lot of people choose to do it the other way round because when you begin winchester you slowly make your way closer and closer to the finish. This really dramatic finish walking towards east born in this place called the seven sisters. Which are these beautiful chalky cliffs that the White Cliffs of Dover the famous cliffs on the South Coast and these be bit as beautiful? I did it the other way and I also did it in a very fun way. I did it as a one hundred mile. Pub CRAWL
WhatsApp Pay to Launch in India
"India a potentially decisive moment in digital freedom is going down right now. India's ruling party has put forward new rules that would allow it to trace and censor private communication. Standing in. Its way is what's up. An American made encrypted Messaging Platform. That's used by hundreds of millions of Indians and the outcome could have ripple effects across the globe. I'm Gabrielle Sierra. And this is why it matters today. India's government versus what's up and the looming threat of digital authoritarianism. India is the world's largest democracy if you can imagine nine hundred. Million PEOPLE VOTED. Alas national election last year out of a population of one point. Three billion people. It's just it's it's a massive exercise election. Yeah it's huge it's populace and that's what also makes it really fun and exciting to be on the ground. You certainly feel the energy especially in the city like Mumbai. Politicians routinely insult each other on the campaign trail criminals of every flavor. Run for office and win so do Bollywood movie. Stars Cricket Stars it just never ends has always been a fairly Jackie democracy. We talk a lot. We argue a lot that our culture. Okay so help me understand why. What's APP is such a big deal in India? How many people are actually using it? They're awfully four hundred million people. It is indeed this is Chinmaya ruined. She's a resident fellow at Yale. University and the founder of a research center at National Law University Delhi. She's also a leading legal expert on the intersection between freedom of speech and technology. And so why WHATSAPP wine? Not you know instagram or snapchat. The elite platforms are used by everyone. But what's happened? The one that really appeals to people if you have a phone that's not too fancy. If you don't speak English you don't read or you don't have access to inexpensive data connection. You can still use. What's APP so it started with? Hey you don't have to spend one rupee or two rupees per tax. You just save them up and then they send whenever you're in Wifi and saw a lot of people with not lot of money. Which is many many Indians decided that this works for them. And then what's up had these multimedia features which people started using it started liking and? I have mixed feelings about this because the good thing is that I get to talk to my grandma. And she finally has forgiven me for moving across cushy can look at my home and you know say things about my plants or whatever course but if you're sitting in an Indian airport and watching the number of people who do video calls subject you to their conversations mixed feelings what's up is really a messaging platform and that can be one messages like me sending a message to you. But it's also very commonly used in India for groups. I am do oil and I am a technology reporter for the New York Times based in Mumbai. India vindaloo also covers Indian economics and culture and has written extensively about free speech and misinformation under India's ruling party. We called him at his home in Mumbai on. What's up what's has become so embedded in life in India that people use it in their business transactions so you can order groceries from your corner grocery store over what's APP. I buy airline ticket from make trip. Which is one of the big online travel agencies? They send me a confirmation message on what's up with by e ticket details so for those of US based outside of India handling a basic transaction may require a few different platforms. You find out about a concert on instagram. Rsvp FOR IT ON FACEBOOK. Maybe share the notification on twitter buyer ticket on ticketmaster and received the confirmation on g mail but for Indians. What's APP is often the one stop shop for everything? In other words an application from Silicon Valley has become basic infrastructure for the second most populous nation honors. That's a pretty big deal and it helps. Illuminate why the government is pushing for greater control. What's up was founded in two thousand nine by two former employees of Yahoo? It's an American company. It was founded in Silicon Valley and they basically built a very simple messaging service became very popular. It caught the attention of Mark Zuckerberg the chief executive and founder of Facebook Zuckerberg beside it in two thousand fourteen to by what's APP and pay the still stock price of twenty two billion dollars for this message company so facebook is making a mobile push with steal the buy real time messaging service. What's APP? It's still a pretty incredible price to pay for a company that stress a few years old. It also makes tiny what's APP more valuable than some of the most established companies in the country including American Airlines Marriott hotels and Xerox and it came at a crucial moment for facebook when it really was trying to find ways to diversify its revenue base and also get in touch with more mobile users. I'm Seema mody global markets correspondent with CNBC business news and suddenly came this messaging platform. That was not only gaining prominence here in the US but around the world in fact I believe the average daily use a rate on WHATSAPP was much higher than Facebook Messenger. Facebook saw that and said this is such a strategic bet for us. Let's acquire it and find a way to really incorporated into our user base platform. But what's APP is free right. What's APP is free? And I think this is still a developing story to see how facebook is really trying to incorporate what's up into its business and you know will you one day see ads on what's that that's certainly been one of the big questions sucker. Berg was pressure in that. This technology of very simple messaging APP was going to become very popular today. Whatsapp has more than two billion users. Around the world it is by far the most popular messaging APP in the world and one of its biggest claims to fame. Is it emphasizes privacy. All messages on the service use. Something called end to end encryption. Okay so in most cases when you send an email or a text message it gets encrypted that means that the information inside is locked up in a code so that outsiders can't read it however the service providers that pass your message along can read it whether that's apple or G. Mail or facebook whoever they all have the keys to that code and that makes your message vulnerable enter end to end encryption with this technology none of the men have the keys. Only you and the person you're sending it to break the code. What's up can't read. Even if the government came knocking at the door of what's up what's up. What have nothing really to give up. And so your information is private and that makes it unique to other services messaging services like whether you're sending a text message or even facebook Messenger where that information does live somewhere. Yeah most other. Messaging Services in the world are not and encrypted and certainly none of the popular ones. But what's up has made it really easy. You don't think about corruption it just is encrypted Because so much of India's communication happens on WHATSAPP end to end. Encryption has made it very difficult for the government to investigate messages in the name of national security. People are not making phone calls anymore. They're not even walking over to their neighbor. Say This texting and where the speech there is harmful speech. It's not news that social media can bring out the worst in people the platforms. We use everyday are teeming with sexism. Racism misinformation and violent ideologies. It's the same. In India or social media has amplified problems that are a lot older than the internet rumors and lies spread like wildfire across the Internet including across chat and applications. Like WHATSAPP Many I. I'm used US India or live. Whatever comes in the woods his true the one that's really made the headlines is there was a lot of fishers. He'd speed circulating on what's APP so for example. The Muslim community is under quite a lot of pressure in India. Right now and it's really sad one of the ways in which they're discriminated against is that some upper caste. Hindus don't eat beef and so the rumors circulating on what's apple say things like X. has beef in his fridge are why is transporting COW CARCASS. And since it's already been sold to people as it stretched to their religion when a rumor like that reaches people that already feel threatened and feel like these people are out to get all the Hindus and they're trying to destroy religion by eating beef and Lynch mobs attacked them and their popularly called. What's APP lynchings? Early twenty eighteen. There was a wave of false messages. On whatsapp about child kidnappers prowling parts of India. Trying to steal people's children and this panicked a lot of people and mobs attacked strangers in various parts of India and killed them. Beat the Tied the mob hung them all kinds of terrible things. More than twenty people died in just the span of a few months because of these rumors and after these rumors started appearing the central government. When after what's happened said you need to find a way to trace these messages and stop these messages. And this set off a feud with what's out that has still not been resolved. The government says it doesn't WanNa read your messages. The government says they don't want to spy on the content of messages. They're not asking what's up to break the encryption of messages and show them what's in the messages but they are saying. Is You need to be able to trace back the pathway of a message. And you have to find a way to do that because if you have some message goes viral we WANNA find out who sent it and we'll see what happens. I mean what's up has said that to that would require significant changes to their service and they haven't said whether they'd be willing to make such changes to their

"At that sound somewhat familiar. Somehow it's because the song was written by Jonathan Geffen set to music by Yoni Rafter and sung by them along with Ud Ravitz Giddy Gov Davi Broza the same five artists. Who Forty two years ago. In nineteen seventy eight together made the most beloved children's record in Israel's history how Kevin Has Shisha SAR the sixteenth sheep. A Kevin is an odd an unforgettable thing it was first book of poems by Yonatan Geffen a then almost thirty year old playwright and journalist and poet who published his first books of poems when he was just nineteen paratrooper. That first book was called quote poems. That are not especially likes and it was dedicated to assist. Her are not age for Geffen. Wrote how Kevin Spacey. Shos are in five days in Paris and it somehow fell into the hands of a twenty eight year old casablanca-born music producer named Doodoo L. Harare.

What they made was magic and it was and it is part of the magic comes from the fact that the songs are all as kids. See things with all. That's lovely about that and also underneath the bouncy tunes and four part harmonies with the worry in confusion and melancholy that we somehow always forget are just as much a part of Childhood Yonathan.

"Will burn this Friday. The Ministry of Health just banned the participation of three thousand foreigners for fear that the race that forty thousand people signed up for to run at various distances. Your marathon your half marathon. Ten K or five K might become what epidemiologists call a super spreading event or s s e such fears. Were probably still by the fact that the official name of the race is the Tel Aviv. Samsung Marathon and Samsung is of course a South Korean Corporation and just earlier this week. We learned that eighteen South Korean Catholic pilgrims have only land where diagnosed with Cova nineteen or corona virus when they returned to Seoul this after they apparently posed for selfies at Masada with a bunch of school. Kids who are now under house arrest quarantine leading the government to send home all tourists and visitors from South Korea in a massive aerial convoy and to ban the entry of anyone else from South Korea also Japan by the way and given that Samsung controls forty five and a half percent of these really smartphone market and those smartphones themselves have been known to get viruses. Well I think you begin to see why the marathon became a flash point of what we might call Zeno nervousness which is a very different thing than Zina nervousness. Which is something you do not find the LGBTQ friendly tel-aviv. But I digress. Of course there is a bright side to this sad state of affairs as there almost always is and it becomes blindingly clear when one recalls that last year the winners of the marathon were Margaret New Guna from Kenya and Samuel Demi from Ethiopia year before that the race was won once again by margin Naguma and also Ernest Cabernet both from Kenya. And if you want to find that Israeli when are you have to go all the way back to two thousand and ten ten years when the race was held in the scorching mid? May tel-aviv son. And the foreigners all stayed away allowing Orna Blau and Avraham Highland macoute to win. Although they're winning times where each more than half an hour longer than the Ethiopian and Kenyan runners who won the very next year and have one in almost every year since my point this year. Thanks to corona virus. This year is going to be Israel's year and arguably nothing captures the lemon lemonade. Spirit of the city.

We make no apology for classical quotations at the universities cricket and scholarship very generally all he goes together when in eighteen thirty six we played victoriously on the side of Oxford Against Cambridge seven out of our eleven were classmen and it is doubtless only to avoid invidious distinction that heads versus heels as was one. One suggested has failed to be an annual university match. Though the series Studio Orem those put to school late would not have of a chance we extract the following quote in a late convocation holding it. Oxford may thirtieth in eighteen fifty one it was agreed to a fix the university seal to a power of attorney authorizing the sale of two thousand pounds three percent for the purpose of paying for and in closing certain allotments of land in Cowley common used as cricket grounds rounds by members of the university in order to there being preserved for that purpose and let to the Central University cricket clubs in such manner as my hereafter up here expedient end quote from all this we argue that on the authority the of ancient and the experience of modern times cricket once mind as well as matter and every sense of the word a good understanding ending.

Soon will fail <hes> the good that ball the bat was more out of the perpendicular. Now the bowler alters his pace good a dropping ball overreached and all but a mistake now a slower pace case still with extra twist. It's furiously to lag too soon. leg-stump is grazed and bail off you see. Sir says the veteran turning round an old player who knows what is and what is not on the ball alone can can resist all temptations that lake balls involve young players are going there round of experiments and are too fond of admiration and brilliant hits whereas it is you're upright straight players that worry a bowler twenty two inches of wood by four and a quarter every inch of them before the stumps hitting or blocking is rather disheartening but the moment a a man makes ready for a leg hit only about five inches by four of what can cover the wicked so leg hitting is the bowlers chance cutting also for a similar reason if there were no such thing is like hitting we should see a full bat every time the man steady on his legs and only one thing to think of and what a task a bowler would have that was. Mr Wards Pie play good for something to the last first rate straight play and free leg hitting seldom last long together when once exalting resulting in the luxurious excitement of a leg volley the muscles are always on the quiver to swipe round and the Bowler sees the bat raised more and more or across wicked so also it is with men who are yearning for a cut forming for the cut like forming for leg hit and I and almost the idea of those hits coming across the mind set the muscles off straight play and give the bowler a chance chance there is a deal of headwork in bowling once make your batsman set his mind on one hit and give him a ball requiring acquiring the contrary and he is off his guard in a moment and with that rather curious stream of consciousness passage.

"We shall presently show the word cricket in Russia lay as early as the year sixteen eighty. A late author has very sensibly certainly remarked that cricket could not have been popular in the days of Elizabeth are we should expect to find allusions to that game as to tennis football football and other sports in the early poets but Shakespeare and the dramatists who followed he observes are silent on the subject as to the silence of the early poets and dramatists on the game of cricket and no-one conversant with English literature would expect to find it accepted some casual allusion or illustration in an old play this silence we can confirm on the best authority authority what if we presume to advance that the early traumatised one and all ignore the very name of cricket.

"With respect to india pissed off home could make it to the finals and then it to the last tour crew <hes> find a way to bed. I in both games so they're going now. Let's move onto. Let's move onto listen questions so we all are hoping that india will make it through to the world cup and we have the trophy here back again. First question of we have from <hes> harsher reicher. Uh who is from go home actually not well so i asked this question to. He asks me he asks us do. Do you think any team from <hes> five to ten like who are on the position five to ten in the world. Cup deserved a different position than they are <music> at my work. I really i mean if you go by nederlander and everything probably no. I think everyone finished the way they deserve to finish. <hes> the other side of the question to me is <hes> like from personal bias point of view whom i would have liked to see finish five or six right. I mean i would've see i would have liked to see <hes> ghanistan finished five and six. That's muslim bias but otherwise otherwise i think they will reflects <hes> each individual teams fortune study accurately all right <hes>. Do you think the rains have played any apart in that positioning in between new zealand and pakistan probably yes but for the other games you know i think most other teams missed out on a game so it was kinda for equal is a <hes> for most of the team so i. I don't think so i did hear about bangladesh to bondi. Show are on the position. The way they have played is reflecting in that position knowing actually lighting bangala this have been the most consistent consistent by things had in the world cup of look at how the better i think that that apart and a combination of lower middle order actually been much better than even india in some sense but they like the bowling to carry them through outside of mustafa send made the art occasions. I think yeah intake intake info <unk> for bangladesh. I think this document is much more than where they finished. I think they have shown the brand of cricket deeply and in the next four years i think they're going took a lot better as when people start taking them seriously they have not yet condemn studiously so a nixon goes out to sil- <hes> the question is what is it it is asked by <hes> divert so the question is why did russia con have had a bad word go. What are you say on this much was expected from delhi one of the newer <unk> because his promises to not under according to the beach <hes> minneapolis is his recreation his bullying positions ethnics is capable of greenwood in every match but what what has gone wrong for russia hunt sounding disturbing it would he has performed he has <unk> boilers which has been around for the best <unk> has been around game has performed as the begging has completely <hes> letdown afghanistan at many of the times of afghanistan gps saudi. Many of the <unk> install has defended <unk> invented input. I in back <hes> they have not even gone bust who fifty at least a lot lot on the mine of apollo doesn't matter what quality there who so when you work in crewe hundreds and one of these pantelis you're defending does does and losing the games it in on the mind of his mind be just not india's so at some point and a world cup in associ- of workup in england in the spin is not much of unfunded so you will they you are defending even more a ah management has changed so i think so that leaves surrounding the surrounding him as affected his performance rather than the cheese or his own concedes all right all right so while we are gone stanfield move onto the third question which is asked by our listener article on swale. This question goes out out to <hes>. The question is was of ghanistan screwed over by the aboard well. That's that's very rude sort of but what would you say might i i mean i think certain extent yes. Possibly we saw so many things happening in the backdrop right. Now captains being changed. Senator who did that is now under scrutiny. They're fast bowler. Send back home for disciplinary measures now. There is an investigation going around <hes> multiple times in all he has had disciplinary issues in the single world cup. It did not look like you know <hes> afghanistan team. Which has this unity the and this joyful nature playing cricket. I mean yeah it looked. It looked like you know they have not having fun so but the way they were playing in the qualifying defined world copy knows. It certainly didn't look the same team yeah exactly exactly if that's what they're trying to make you know it's like many have said in the passionately to easy to become number one but it is much more difficult to stay at the top so right now. The challenge for gunnison starts now. I mean how are they going. Maintain or improve wonder standards that they have set for younger teams newer team so that is something that will be looking forward to in the next <hes> forty years before the next world cup okay. I think the question was villa answer. The question is if scotland and ireland were a part of this world cup a a round robin. What would we have food. We have seen differently. The question is asked by squad jefferson and i think additive will be the best to answer this one. Yeah i think i would have loved to see both those sides especially given the fact there disrobing a home world cup so i remember in one thousand nine hundred nine edinburgh <hes> the amsterdam holding a few games in nine hundred ninety four remember. I think scotland island especially has been always wanting obliterate automate <hes> just a few weeks before this world cup start there'd been the english isn't actually began. I use capping linda if you'd have been but and we're not we're not talking of england winning. They were being front runners for the <unk> and if you just go less than brennaman back scotland beating linden and again like scotland at home scored at t sixty two to the eighth or something against england this berlinger greg did round robin format of what would you think like with scotland and irony betcha sir but but if you had dreaded teams they wouldn't have gone for the round-robin format to begin with so then he'd been like two groups of seven or six or whatever then either super cindy's sort of essays ladies and gunston deadwood island in scotland <hes> put you would you think would have still been like of gunnison and of these or would help them better. Oh i think ireland afghanistan would have done better because don't forget where she has been in good form in this yet. They'll beat any vendor toll mandate grown grow no indices against <unk> which is not a meeting feed. These are going to spend a lot more international exposure these <unk> scotland ireland who do not get a lot of games against these big sites so i i am a big gate of her <unk> actually be good way to cope in in terms of the number of teams and not a huge fan of this around open for me but so i would of ideally they should have stuck to the ninety nine two thousand three or four months where you have google of seven or eight and then a super six stage that aren't sides more sides the exposure and also taken away the flu elements or you'll also given sites five or six games to go through so desperately charlie. I don't think they would have done better than afghanistan enriching this who who to be fair to them have had to your four close games. Both of those sites <hes> yeah so i who onto next question to this question is asked by glimpsed santiago sale a._b._d. Inclusion have made different stew south africa position seats so moro for moral question than a performance of question you binny's performance you alerts <hes> he he had formed in some matches or he has been performing opera merely as it's not out of foam form or his his performance as comedown then he has since he has retired is more of a moral question if emission solution should've been there on a <unk> infusion of meter difference because the bliss which has released him or drying replaced missing since he's <hes> it's yemen is like resi recluse a have you on a lot walk along with undesirable bill but deepak you on a lot of sense of osteo of a year city. He had to hire a sport in south of uncertainty own village. So this is served the dead. He had just four hours before a forty eight hours. Before a this election was supposed to be done and asked if he would be a part of the issue of of an all eighteen so point coming into the thing thanks so much much more negative been sprayed into the year and so you're seeing it wouldn't have had much impact on the position all right so one last question that we have and <hes> this goes to work and i think it's pretty funny and it is somewhat ironic cassville alford readout to question. No this is by v._j. Blessed the question is what would happen if i'm but derided except iceland proposal and let listener who have asked this is v._j. Prasada a bit ironic. I mean the thing is i think we i one thing is for sure will end up having more fun on twitter thought i don't know what will happen on the cricketing friend but certainly certainly <hes> knowing the iceland cricket handle repeal and <hes> knowing who's <hes> tendency towards humor. I mean lean it would have been a great week <hes> after it and for me. That's i think what the what the the question. The person wasn't who else question means. Is that it be. Would it mean something for the iceland or philip. Just be namesake. No i mean bob well. You know if he kind of plays so let let let let's let's. Let's <hes> you know. Save you know the the thing is length is not <hes> associated team yet so is lend if you look at the list of teams which are associated countries. Iceland is not one of them <hes> cricketing club. <hes> you know as say okay so did i do probably goal were there and <hes> you know help out with coaching and some you know those kind of things but <hes> and knowing that so you have the i._p._o. Going on in india and other match other tournaments around the world arrived or would not a offer because he has enough like four or five years is what millions to make <hes> and and the upside i mean you know it's important to know that whatever i was suggesting was a joke. It was not a serious uh-huh yeah so <hes> there is no way you know <hes> that was a c._d._s. Often that is no way even if it was offered on monday night out of a cannon up at this stage he does scotty elevator in all he has plenty of europe's of peel and a apron around the world for him if be allows him to play which i think they were because you writing is also outlaying outside india yeah yeah yeah so. I think we have reached the end of today's episode suit. Thank you thank you for taking the time to talk to me today and special thanks to a mike and tale for taking time and talking to me today and pre reading the episodes in answering some of this new questions now.

"That's that's an excellent point rate so maiocco <hes> with respect to the indian as i said earlier we are all a bit twitted about the middle order as vela's <hes> spinners being hit because of the chateaux boundaries that we have seen in some matches previously <hes> what do you think should veep go with the someone like nature and maybe two seamers n <hes> en someone from <unk> deep artificial judicia should be kept <unk> out. No i am focusing on geneva is because he has the ability to get over with the always very quickly before a <unk> best benko so much. Thank you oppose who to call it that so do you. <hes> is helpful in this emmys or do you think we should stick with what we have been going. Initially i mean i have. I have a hunch advert advert. Quality is going to play a radio so thing is <hes> whitcomb deepen charlie no both of their biological rhythm borders and for some reason <hes> board would these borders have not found there that we had used to seeing them have so <hes> in that aspect of <hes>. I don't think we're going to play. Both of them are home to pick. I i think i think <hes> we are going to play <hes> because <hes> khalid played this particular game he did not do that. Well and i feel shahal has ability a bit of a better big game temperament that leap glebe is like a much more than i mean he he kind of gets destroyed once in a while but a highly kind of you hit them for six fine with it. <hes> i believe our own to happen but i think too highly is going to play and not leap <hes> i think <hes> as as you are correctly pointed out to play trees emerged shami included <hes> i would just go back to some of the positives regiment we focus on the negative continue on one of the positive i have seen is hardly find is actually a has actually become a reliable fifth bowler for india. Yeah i mean i didn't. I didn't expect a lot from you. We have seen him consistently. Give those eight ten overs and some weeks when needed. I mean agreed that all as we could have not been pretty he pretty much has taken too because like it takes in indians ideal games where he probably the batsmen tried to hit him out and they get caught at the boundary lines but having said that you know he has kept one night <hes> he has followed the plans correctly and i think i think i would i would appreciate the way he has bowled so that is what the positive that he can be at the border and no going back to the point i was making i i mean the thing is yeah you know in may is not built for three thirty three forty. Jay's <hes> their best hope is starting up to seventy to eighty and chasing that art while batting. I <hes> get near three hundred three hundred hundred under twenty and then put pressure through bowling so i would knock suddenly the expect the middle order to do something drastic in the last two games. I do not see any centrally. Are you know very quickfire eighty ninety coming out of the five six or seven bats. I don't think that is going to happen so that brings me back to the question i mean i think i would go with jadeja into in terms of the nicotine because how getters i'm keke that has not really hit their stride that will right and i think he's slight. He's falling out of favor with the <hes> starting eleven in dumps of feeling and also bowling because we all expected him to be a good <hes> sixth bullen get folder four five hours out but he's not doing that so i would rather play jared entered of him <hes> in mainly because we'll have a better feeling there as well. Yes yes victor continuing on that point syle my question to you is who should india play with respect to the question which we are going on <hes> specially kid shuttle on it should be geeky offficial bringing some surprise and introduce my anchor while on top has been according to me there has been some problems for india in this world cup one which has been a bitch rectifying the last according to one <hes> who is a new thing so the <unk>. That's it again joe. Okay a a certain point but again just give them who kicks so that has been stood up program for them in the selection that you executive will come at the point <hes>. I don't think the middle order is a middle order. Batsman are taking individually inform performing. I think the yes election this. This election has been a problem for a while for easter year <unk> docking in your us india fine of the number to assess a certain.
