Power Five conferences consider cancelling 2020 football season
"It stands right now I mean this is what we're looking at right at this very moment that it doesn't seem like there's going to be a whole lot of college football this season and so. We're going to talk about the NFL season. Our season preview issue has to hit newsstands tomorrow as it stands right now with a lovely story by Jenny RENTA's on the cover, which is very excited. Very excited to talk to her about that and a little bit but let's just I acknowledge the weirdness of the fact that we have no idea what's going to happen the impact that this is going to have. On the NFL season on, you know they're not going to have college football You know we've seen evaluators already saying that this combine is going to be monumental because you know there might be a ton of kids without any tapeh that you're GonNa get to look at transfers who's leaving early I mean this is going to be I think chaos sort of hitting the funnel right now and everything's about to explode. It seems like the decisions from Yukon and then the MAC conference for kind of the first two moves that really got the ball rolling for the power five conferences to reconsider the season and everything really came to a head on Sunday Nights You had indications that there would be no football season that conferences were meeting to discuss this issue and then you had players saying they, they wanted to be able to play but also would. Hope to unionize, which is another significant development. So it's been a pretty chaotic twenty, four hours for college football, and so then the NFL is kind of moving ahead as scheduled things came to a head I. Think Sooner for College Football for a lot of reasons we've had players who have had. Issues, after testing positive for Cobra had entire teams that had to be quarantined. The NFL right now is in this training camp kind of locked down tight mode it's it's not a bubble obviously, players are going to and from, but it's kind of the normal constraints of training camp, and so we don't really know yet if it will work for the NFL obviously they are in a better. Position Than College football because players are represented by a union that is the big difference here, work working conditions and everything that goes with returning to work in pandemic had been hash out ahead of time, and there were clear protocols in place across the board So we still don't know if it's going to work for the NFL, but they're certainly in a better spot right now than college football. Thought. Teammate. Ross dellinger did a good job of illustrating one of the main issues which was you know there were doctors on these conference calls with the heads of all the power conferences and saying you know their studies that are coming back from Germany that. Percents seventy percent of the people who get the corona virus and their asymmetric and move on still have heart issues you know and that impacts athletes significantly You know I mean if the speed at which your heart beats or the size of your heart or whatever's going on there I mean that significantly impacts someone who doesn't aerobic sport right and who has to worry about you know. All their conditioning and all that kind of stuff and how the heart's pumping and all that kind of stuff and so I it blows my mind that we've gotten this far already down the down the road with the NFL, where in everyone just kind of looking over at college football now and saying Jesus is going to be us and it's hard not to think that it will be right i. mean the NBA seasons kind of plotting along? I mean there's Some little signs of positivity here and their Major League Baseball seems to be you know stumbling and then recovering stumbling and then recovering but I mean, we really going to have such a better idea about this and three or four weeks than we do now at I really don't know. Yeah. On what you raise is such an important point that we don't have all of the answers on the long term impacts of covert and that's why it was so silly earlier. This offseason, the people discussing like, Hey, it's a competitive advantage of athletes. Get it. Now, they don't have to worry about getting in the fall when first of all, we don't even know how long the you would have immunity from getting the virus, and then secondly, we don't know the long term impacts on the body, and as you mentioned the research coming back as indicated that for some people, it can be severe and long lasting and we know impacts the circulatory. System has neurological impacts. Those are very serious beyond just a simple virus that you get over. So it was never a binary thing where you either have a, you know a fatal outcome or a mild case. There's a lot of outcomes in between and I think for college athletes especially who are eighteen to twenty two years old who are not getting paid who are not professional athletes making this decision who also have school to deal with there just are. A lot more considerations at play and I. Think once you had conferences saying we're stopping play because we believe that it's safe. Then it really put the pressure on the other conferences I think to say, well, you know we can't make the claim that it's safe. Other conferences are saying it's not
Defending MacOS Against Sophisticated Attacks
"I've come from a kind of unusual background I guess for somebody in Cybersecurity. In. The sense that I started. I. Mean I've been involved with the MAC platform for. Something like fifteen years or more. But I didn't really start getting into it in a kind of technical way until about eleven years ago. And, I just started out on Apple's support forums trouble-shooting. Volunteering. Troubleshooting advice to people. And after Wa, that led me to most problems that are coming up back then were or it started to be when we started to see security issues like adware and things like that. And that sort of an Brown about way, let me to develop my own software to basically deal with all these issues. Instead of answering people's questions all the time. and. So for about five or six years I was. Developing my own software and doing that and. Then, about two years ago, I joined central one, basically, they were looking for somebody who had background in McCoy security shoes to sort of help with with research. And somebody who kind of knew the threat scape and sort of seen it evolve so. That's kind of how I got to today. Janka. Where do we find ourselves today when it comes to Mac Os and and sort of the state of things when it comes to security and what's your estimation of where we are? Generally the Mackie's a safe platform. I don't think. There's a big argument about that, but I think the the issue really is that. There is a malware problem on Mac os which never existed maybe five or six years ago. It's actually even escalated again in the last couple of years I think and I think part of that is to do with the fact that Maxim now. Foul often found in business environments whereas they probably weren't. Going back was five or six years would really. Popular Business Machine. And I think it's also that. Just to use his vague general term threat actors. Realized there is money to be made from accuses. Possibly it comes with the development of the iphone from two, thousand seven. But the fact that people now have them. Max connected to so many other devices there a rich hunting ground for people who want to. Gather, data of adware. We. Also have some more targeted actors as well with the business environment. So. I think the situation today really is that. There is a lot more threats, for Max, and has ever been before, but I think also not a great awareness Soviet. If you compare that to say windows. Yeah. You can ask even the most basic windows us and they probably know what an AV is probably know that they need to have windows defender turned on or something like that. But with MAC users, I don't generally get that sense of awareness. You know this is sort of general feeling that it's a market. It's safe by design. You know I think that's. Something that people really need to have second thing about with the kind of threats that we see these days. It's it's my perception from the folks that I've talked to that the majority of the The malware hitting Mac users seems to be adware people. It's that classic update your copy of Flash and then something gets installed shows. Ads is, is that an accurate perception on my part I? Would say, so I think I wouldn't like to give figures because I don't really have the data to to say that, but you know it. Sort of. Off of the top of my head, I would say, probably seventy eighty, maybe even ninety percent of the stuff I actually see on a day to day basis is going to be adware and it's Kinda cousin, which is the stuff recalled bundle way all the kind of. Potentially. unwanted. Software. That gets installed alongside says, download some software manager and you get like ten. Things back keeper and Lisov utilities that are not really often any any value. That often get installed. Through hidden, very, very difficult to see check boxes and things like that. CRYPTO is also thing. We've had allowed minor bird minors in the last couple years that they've been intimidated detections. We see those on the rise quite a lot. and. Too, much lesser extent. There's bits of the spyware. Data stealing stuff, Anacostia things that get headlines every hour now, and again is the. Things Lazarus or AP GM era. You know very very targeted dings going after specific uses. So yeah, I. Mean I. think that's a fairly accurate way to think about it. In terms of the general user. I, think the most threats they're looking at our. ADWARE unbundle where? The other problem that I'm I see. Developing is when we look at these adware bundle where actors and. Listen to in the media's general slayer which has been. Pretty proactive in the last eighteen months, or so what you see is a lot of interaction between between themselves and a lot of swapping. So you get adware sources installing bundle wear and you get bundle where download is that are serving up where and it's it's kind of difficult. Actually a Lotta time to pull up different players, all these sort of paper install kind of things, some serving adware, some of them are serving genuine malware so. It seems as if there is a lot full of interaction with these guys. In terms of helping each other out to. Serve this. I mean I just called a whole lot malware. Basically, something that the US had doesn't want doesn't know and is not in our interests and as you know as far as I'm concerned it, you might as well call it all where. The number of these things his what's really. Quite. Shocking. When you look at just how much more of this is occurring this more this year than there was last year, you know almost exponentially, and this seems to be more players as
Bytes and Pieces: Americas Chinese-Tech Attack
"As the heads of Amazon Alphabet facebook and apple were being berated in Congress, last month how many competitors did facebook ended up copying we called it Amazon heroin. Why does bny steel content from honest businesses tiktok the goofy funny video sharing app was having an altogether better time of it. Golden. Do. Not, so much anymore we're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. Thursday the trump. Issued a deadline of September twentieth for ending all American transactions bite dense to talks parent company as well as with. China's second most valuable, Tech Company ten cent with Para companies based in China apps like Tiktok we chat and others are significant threats to personal data of American citizens not to mention tools for CCP content censorship. China's government called the executive orders a nakedly hegemonic? act. By dense is looking for a fire sale buyer for some of its international Tiktok operations and it seems Microsoft is checking pockets. But the administration's zeal is likely to harm America's interests as well as the Chinese tech champions. We knew a band was in the offing at is still everyone by surprise Thompson booth is the economists technology and business editor I. Think most people were expecting president trump to wait until a a TIKTOK deal had gone through to reach a resolution on whether there would be a ban on not and it's also quite surprised that he's gone after we chat and tencent. And the reaction from the two companies has been quite strong. Bite dance has said that it's GonNa fight the executive orders in court. Well, as you say, there had been some expectations around Tiktok by dense. Why? Why was ten cents included in the end? Well there isn't a certain unfortunate logic to this. If you're going to say that you're concerned about Tiktok on national security and espionage grounds, you sort of have to be consistent and we chat has about nine hundred, million daily users in the US and the executive order basically bans people from making transactions on we chat which it's a sort of super APP. That is really widely used in in China and Chinese diaspora what is the trump administration's rationale for these orders? Do you think so the stated reason from the administration is the Chinese government is spying on Americans and hear the evidence is Circumstantial. So the worry is that Chinese spy agencies have stolen massive consumer data sets from various companies over the past ten years. So from Mariot Equifax anthem health insurance TIKTOK has been downloaded two billion times. It's the mother of data sets. There is no hard evidence that bite dance would ever cooperate in such an endeavor but the idea is that if you've got engineers with access to Tiktok by Don, service than the government could lean on them to get the information out. So that's the stated reason from the trump administration. Think that's enough for the American government to threaten to ban the APP. I gather from investors case to buy dance at the real reason is a level playing field issue as much as the spying concern. So one gathered that in particular. Mark, Zuckerberg of facebook has been outlining pointing out to trump that take talk is wildly successful in the US and yet facebook google than allowed into China. It's sort of the idea of why should tech top able to come to compete with us when we can't do so in the other direction? And as things stand now, Microsoft is the evidence suitor for for Tiktok operations at least in a in a few countries what's in it for them? I think for Microsoft is really stunning opportunity on their part. So bite dance reckons that the TIKTOK US asset is worth in the realm of two hundred billion dollars oversee the pudding, very generous estimate on that. So the price being talked about now that Microsoft might pay and that it's on the block for more life fifteen, forty billion. So it's just a real steel in terms of the price. I'm talking to the hottest social media property out there right now it's uses incredibly highly engaged and Microsoft you out of stroke gets into territory of the social, the digital media giants, and it gets a massive data set on teenagers daters the new oil. Attack, there is lots of sketches in the Microsoft just is kind of getting out of its core competence that it won't really know how to get and keep the teenagers. The other risk for Microsoft is just kind getting dragged into the Mile Strom of content moderation and hate speech and all this kind of stuff that attracts more political scrutiny and then regulatory scrutiny having said that Microsoft is regarded as a really high quality acquirer of businesses it generally tends to do it quite well. Microsoft. CEO Sachin Adela notably is currently probably regarded as the best big taxi. Oh so now we've got this deadline of September twentieth what happens between now and then Firstly, Microsoft going to carry on negotiating to try and buy Tiktok we're seeing more suitors for Tiktok on the scene over the weekend the reports that twitter is definitely interested I know that Netflix's on the coolest the venture capital backers of Bite Don's possibly even Disney I do think the likeliest thing is still the Microsoft probably strikes a deal just because it's got the deepest pockets will also be really interesting to see whether Microsoft manages to get more markets at. The moment, it's only going for the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. It's not buying the UK having the actual executive order from trump will create more uncertainty around Tiktok and there's no doubt that it is already harming the asset. It's no joke said, the clock really is taking on that deal and what about ten cents? It's unclear. What ten cents is going to do it's unlikely to try and sell international we chat as by dance is doing with Tiktok. It's possible that it could come up with some kind of structure to address. US concerns. It's a complete unknown how tencent now is going to react but I guess the question is, is the right way for America to get its concerns addressed with a problem with. It so far as that feels completely sort of ad hoc on his whim. Really undermines investor confidence in the US is the place of the rule of law. And there are alternatives and I think there's three main steps that we would advocate versus to strengthen the vetting procedure that's already in place. So the Committee on foreign investment in the US surface that probes should stop properly and quickly. So in the case of Tiktok and musically the US APP that bike dance bought therefore triggering this whole situation, they took two years to start looking at it and then did it in a rush which guarantees Robert chaotic ad, hoc situation. And overwhelmingly, the US needs to tighten up its own data privacy regime. So the reason that tiktok is such. A worry in terms of spying theoretically is that US firms, your facebook's Google's and so on her normalized that the slurping just masses of personal data from Americans. So what's required is a strong federal data privacy law. The third element is displayed to you can do in. Terms of requiring transparency into the Algorithms being used auditing code that's coming in from overseas for now, the question for those two billion or so people who've downloaded tiktok whether their favourite platforms going to survive or whether the current chaotic procedure that has affected, the company will mean it. It's rivals take it over and teens leave. Thanks very much for your time Tamsin it's been a pleasure.
Threat modeling: Breaking the design with pen, paper, and creativity
"What will your students learn with threat modeling study path? Well, it makes a give him an overview and I'll say. You know, why would you WANNA know trump model Ryan, and then I go into a number of different frameworks because I don't think people utilize the firms that are out there a lot of open source frameworks that are very good. That gives you an overall idea. There are so few almost taxonomy. He's calling frank because they're thinking you very good idea of what you can look for a second year. If you're a writer and you sit down, go to write a piece of paper and let's say you're going to write a novel. And you don't start got a blank piece of paper there. Right. A lot of times they do these days, they could keep you kickstart. And they said, well, you know. A right you know he's walking over the billowing winters prompt. Yeah, it gave you props and so these frameworks prostitute, they allow the security personnel, the non security person to kick, start those ideas, and I train the people dropped the different courses. I tell them okay. Here the frameworks and here the interational between the firms. I don't think enough. You do that enough out there. Don't say I've got from exit firmer Y, how do they relate to each other and I get the students to do that on their on their own? So they understand what the different relations are. And then once they get that the key turns in clicks. I can't. Now I can start mapping these firms between each other, and it's a very powerful way to go about using against affect as infrastructure security, network security of cloud security. The whole smash because it gets his whole relation between knees and they could use all of them. Of. Course RTM, which is rapid prototyping. Okay. Shameless plug. Sure. Can You? Can you sort of walk? Walk us through kind of a sample like like. Modeling session like what like you said, you've got, you've got these sort of these templates and so forth. But people who are because we have people who might be hearing the words threat modeling for the first time here. So I guess, give us a quick ramp up here of like what what, what, what you're doing with this kind of thing. Only, as he is way to penetrate penetration testing in a very cheap way, possible. Normally penetration testing as you get into actual code base taking there and you destroy stuff and you go back and say, hey, broke your coat. Go all knowing they pay a lot of money to fix the code there. What if I told you that trump mornings too cheaply? or I hand over designed to you and I say break the design thinking mad camphor cad or he built the cars in three dimension. Their match Fi said to you you burgess is on and you break it. So that's great. You cost me time of one person might architect. Architect goes back he or she the changes in design you go back you break it again, we do this back and forth it way until you come to designed disagree with, we say look now we've got our our mitigations in place and then we baked those medications into coat Now, you no longer have a flawed design because flaws, verses, bugs, a flaw. design needs it no matter how good you are. You always come flawed code. Designed perfectly is like baking a cake without proper rising lower. Whereas whereas a bug needs you lipid. You. Answer. He said I'm going to pick a cake, and so I said, why don't you? Tell that. I don't want to be flower this. Yeah, okay you're. You'RE GONNA come out with a bad cage, but you're your. Implementation, issue. Science she. Yes. Exactly, exactly Allen. So so in that case, right there throttling goes after the design, and after the the actual flaws as opposed, the station issues is this something. That's is something that's happening. Kind of more before the system is in place, then you're sort of. You're looking at the system before it's even launched. So that's that's so it's not so much. It's not just that you're not breaking the system of penetration testing. It's that you're you're bulletproof. before begins. Exactly. Okay. He thought of another way like if. We wanted credit a bank building and we said, okay, five, we don't know much about it. So we created thank building and we create a transom window that's open to volks, and we say, no, it's going to get into the volt area. So we're not going to lock it. So it goes into the TRANSOM window. It's in the volt steals money you and I have a lot of economic faces. Why ready to penetration tests? That's the sign. Yes, and we didn't say like look there's a transit down there. Why is that there? I don't know. Jeff money down there. Okay. Yeah. That kind of thing. So. Contact, yeah?
Pitcher Plant Symbioses
"You know is a big group, florist speaking Southeast Asia is insanely diverse, but then just even think about it from symbiosis specifically like there's already a laundry list of possibilities in there. So how do you even begin to start to sort through where you can make your mark on the science because as part of it as as like a young eager scientists in trainings to be like, okay. Where do I fit in here? Very. True. Yeah. That that was that was quite a process. The first two possibly even three yet mostly the first two years but Essentially what I did is I took a strategy to to find that niche I, kind of just tried everything. Works but. I will say. I did start wanting to focus on the symbiosis between the plants and the the frogs which marina them. That such, a an unusual niche interaction with barely little known about it. So I I thought of that is oh, that would be a nice place to. State my claim but. There there's a reason why some things are not so while studied. In this case, the interaction is not so common as her interactions with insects. Amazon permits again is is is a key thing. So apparently, there's at least one region insider walk in Malaysia which it's not so uncommon to find it but then getting the permits and work, there is another hassle but. As I mentioned like the the more I read about the group and just seeing I just had so many questions and still. Have so many. Questions A on. The first chapter is not one that I anticipated really. So while I was working on trying to. See if I can find breeding frogs in in Singapore I. Wasn't really getting data on that and but I noticed this color polymorphism of the the the common species there nepenthes. Priscilla's. Added on that. But by first chapter ended up looking into coloration. Fees and. Studying that from evolutionary perspective and then also teasing apart what are the possible adaptive benefits of the differences in Ignatius that you see. So even within a species, there's variation between red and green editors and you could see within any individuals species but that was not a question that I went in with right and that's important to realize is how much of this is informed budgets being out there walking around being curious you know that's part of it to kind of have to enjoy what you're doing and and enough to kind of have that relaxed state of mind as they like. My notice that there but not there that's this color not over here and even on the same individual and it's cool that those can then just creep up into your work and become a big part of it without ever really realizing it. But that's where you know having the passion for the system kind of comes into play because God forbid you sent her on something I didn't want to do that and I should have said that in the meeting kind of thing. But Again. You're in the super bio diverse area. You're studying a group of plants that are super charismatic in also diverse themselves and you mentioned you know these Priscilla's a common species in that area and and as that another limitation to the work to as you mentioned, just finding frogs breeding in pitchers alone is difficult but you don't want to stay your entire PG or really. Any research on an organism, you might find maybe two of in your entire time surging or have to climb repel into all this crazy stuff just get to it So is that a big motivating factor to is just being able to work with species where you can get enough data and ask the kinds of questions to to even start investing the sorts of stuff Yes definitely. and. That's A. That's a nice thing about nepenthes actually. So all although. It's this some exotic species from. Our perspective from coming coming from the West sides difficult. Get there bought once you're there once you're in those places, they're usually locally pretty abundant. You can usually get a lot of plans when when you're in that site. Let's really encouraging in also again, if you're like us, living in the Americas, no experience with any of the tropical pitcher plants outside of maybe botanical garden or a nursery like Oh that must've been a sight for sore eyes just walking into an area that is dominated

Interview With Skye Pillsbury
"I'm sure it's fine. So without further ado, let's talk a little bit too sky about leaving inside podcasting like she just made the announcement that not only was this her last season but that she would no longer be writing for inside podcasting which I don't know if you guys know this but unlike hot pod and Pod News, Sky Actually works for a company that has asked her to create inside podcasting. It's not her own is not of her own fruition. So what came about that made you decide? No Moss. So I have been percolating in my brain for a few months I had actually talked to inside about it about three months prior and. I feel for I say that I'm super grateful to inside it opens so many doors for me to meet so many interesting people you included and so I loved the experience of writing for them but it did feel after two years like I was I was really pouring my blood sweat and tears into the podcast and the newsletter. It just felt like I was every day that I was working for them and building this thing for them. Felt like a day that I wasn't building something for me it didn't feel that. Way In the beginning but once I, sort of like established myself a little bit I just had this nagging feeling that it was time to do something new and I don't know right now exactly what form that is gonNA take but I will be keeping people posted about that on twitter and there's a few different things I'm craving one could be more ownership over something that I create one could be working with more of a team because it was very much a solo effort and sort of crave like that's why doing this. PODCAST with you guys, it's so fun for me because you're my friends and it's it's you know the sense of community that I haven't really had and you know it would be nice to get paid more. You know no one goes into journalism to make a million dollars. So I had all of that. The other thing which I think is fine for me to share is that Jason who is my boss? He's the founder of inside wanted and had been sort of hammering me for a few months to make eight paid newsletter. He's done that with a lot of the other newsletters that inside produces an I really didn't want to do that I didn't feel that my readers were the kind of years that necessarily that all of them had like extra funds to spend on newsletters that you know is my news are critical to your workday probably not it's. It's a nice fun thing to read but I also didn't want to be writing a newsletter for like the twenty people that pay I mean I don't know how many people it would have been we had. Eighteen thousand subscribers so maybe it would have been more, but the point is that what I WANNA do is to write for a big audience of people who love podcast, and so that was another had staved off for months and I knew that it is certain point I wasn't going to be able to do that anymore. So that was a big reason to for me. To say I think I need to you know it's time for me to strike out on my own I have no, there's no bad blood. There are no hard feelings. Jason is a total work, but in a weird way I, kind of love him too and I definitely am appreciative to the company and everyone that I worked with they're just as your friend. I you've never. Said anything bad about Jason that I can recall. You've always said nothing but nice things about him and it sounds like your dilemma is the dilemma of every entrepreneur whether you knew you were one or not. Eventually we all do that where even if you're already working for yourself like for me as a graphic and web designer I was working I was doing projects hourly. And at first, it was six yards and our, and then I was like wait in three hours only making one hundred, eighty bucks that's ridiculous and then I then you move it up and then you move it up and when you're working for someone else you don't get anywhere near what you would pay as a consultant and you're still like, wow, I spent eight hours there. And I made three hundred dollars and also I, didn't know work that I get to keep crap. You want your own body of work you want your audience and your traffic, and when you're talented, you know you're talented and when you're good even if you're not marketing like you know that you're good at your job and therefore wants to do it on your own behalf. So I totally get that and I think it's a big conversation right now within podcasting is that. Specific to podcasting a lot of people are producing podcasts and not getting the same kind of deals especially particularly, I. Think people of Color. Not Getting the same deals as other people are getting from the companies that they work for you know Britney lose from the nod has been very vocal about that as well as Meka Yousef created tell them. I am these are conversations that are out there happening my situation was different. I was under no illusion that I was going to be able to keep. Anything, but it is that same feeling of like you know it is weird for me. I have to say that they might continue that podcast and they'll be completely different homes and yet it really was like my creation and you know hopefully, it will always be out there but it's time for me to build something for me whether it's writing podcasting even freelancing I don't know it. I want to be more in control of my own destiny as an and I loved the interaction with readers and if I had to make it pay walled that interaction would have really narrowed and you know what I loved about writing. That was just like I had a big audience and people who wanted to engage with the and I. Hope
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 first look
"Real quick. How about the watch? The galaxy watched three to super-quick. I totally forgot about this watch I've got one of my wrist unit already it is thinner and lighter than last Gal to watch was two years ago. So not saying much not saying much this is the forty five. Millimeter model. It's still pretty big. I've also got a an active watch active to That's the forty millimeter model, and that's a smaller size and I find that when we're comfortable but if you like big watches You'll like this too because it's still a really big watch. I haven't really spent a ton of time playing with it, but that's their like big pitch is that it is smaller or to be thinner and lighter than before it's also slightly more expensive that kind of an upscale with it since they've got the watch active to line that's taking care of the lower price. So it costs a little bit more, I think this models like four hundred and fifty bucks and it goes up from there. So stay tuned, we'll have a review soon I know that the Galaxy Watch was really popular for Samsung in this one probably will be popular as well but. I love the rotating basil on those but I felt like when I was holding this at the hands on, I look experience that Basil Raises Pretty High above the screen still, and I just wish that they would get that down. It's like a move to minds with that because I totally agree like it's got this like dish to it, and it's kind of a little weird with specially when you're swiping it. But at the same time, if you're like out and about and you knock against something that Basil stops something for smacking your screen and scratching it so like I can totally understand why you would want to have that kind of raised lip in the sense of like a Casio g shock has all that chunky like rubber rounded and super rugby and could smack it with a hammer when smack this with hammer I get why that Basil is raised and I will say this I've been wearing the watch active to for almost a year now. And it has that virtual touch dial around it's like a touch strip that doesn't rotate but it moves when you move your finger on it, and then this is obviously the the actual rotating ring. This is way better. The rotating ring is way superior. So I'm glad that the kept around physical controls beating controls I'm into it.
The Pixel 4a is coming
"We just had soon are on the show. Was it two months ago? And we're like what's up pixels and he like we gotta make him. Good. Did he make him good. I mean he made he made one one. Good. So the Pixel for a has been announced and released viewed it bunch of a tear. Actually, the podcast of used one but because the Pixel for is late and we can talk about why it is really close to when we're assuming the pixel five is gonNA come out. So Google is like you know what? Yeah, we're making a pixel five. It'll be out here this fall also there's GonNa be a pixel for a five G. 'cause you know that's what you want. So they just announced all three phones at once just Bam per year of you reviewed the. We've not seen photos of the five. We have seen various and confusing leaks all summer and Chris you might actually have a better handle around this afar but a bunch of the early leaks for like this must be the pixel five. Am It's like well, no, there's actually the probably the pixel for five G. now, and then there's more yet more internal documents, even more pixels at a foldable pixel like later on down the line like it's a fiasco in Pixel rumor land. Super. Confusing I mean they had that league. I think it was last month there was a phone. It looks just like the four day but they said it was the five and people weren't sure. But then it seems like they might get rid of their face ID clone which I really actually liked on the pixel of four like to just walk away from that the thumb reader but I mean, yeah, no one's really quite sure it's going to look like even the four five G. might have new specs or a bigger screen or who knows who knows what the story is I mean it's there's there's just always confusion about what's GonNa Happen is GonNa have brightly colored plastic rectangle smug s Yes The four as a decidedly, not brightly colored plastic rectangle. Four, you reviewed it. So the big big new innovation in the Pixel Foray is they dropped fifty bucks off the price. So it to three hundred, fifty dollars, which is. Pretty big. It's a pretty big deal It's a hundred bucks less than these storage equivalent iphone se. To get one I WANNA see one, hundred, twenty, eight gigs and they just like. Got Everything as good as you can probably get it on a three hundred, fifty dollar phone like I. Wish it had a faster processor but we live in a world of android where qualcomm. If you want to get a good qualcomm processor, you gotta spend way too much money. So I got like, okay one that's got a pretty solid screen. It's it's got a hole punch. It's got the Pixel camera a Becca actually pointed out to me when we were talking to them, she asked if it had was the sensor Becca three sixty three. Yeah. Same Sensor as. The Pixel four and the Pixel three and the Pixel three they've been using literally like the exact same camera stack for like two years now. So it's great. It makes takes rate photos but they haven't pushed it much. I would love it. If you could select your software tuning on the Pixel who right if you buy a pixel for and like make this shit, look like the Pixel two that would make me very happy because I thought the Pixel two looked it was the most contrast in the most dramatic and they have veered towards looking more like the overtime. But I wish. I. Could just be like go back to that look I love that look the best because if they're using the same hardware, they should give you the choices software, right? Everyone is just looking at me like. I mean it's like it's like saying you should just get your choice of. Clutch on your Mustang like it gets tied. The thing. Okay. Versus automatic. Put Your Ninety seven clutch in Twenty fifteen I mean you don't WanNa do that but you can be retune in anyway. Keep going the pixel for we're not gonNA talk about mustangs fingerprint sensor on the back. It works great. It's got a headphone Jack. because. Apparently low and phones are the only phone's headphone Jacks Anymore Beca you holding one right now you're holding. I'm holding one right now and what I'll have to say about this is that I love this thing like it gave me everything I like about phones in twenty twenty like a big screen and it's slim and the batteries diesen but it kept the things that I also love about previous cones that I love a fingerprint sensor like a one on the back and I love a headphone Jack and I love the Pixel camera in its three hundred and fifty dollars, which is a pretty good pricing twenty twenty for a brand new phone. There's this. There's this meme out there. For him but like there's this idea out there that like Google was bored with android in the pixels reflection of its board on this phone feel like they're bored with it. Now I'm bored with Andrew. Debut. The one new features accessibility feature for software a IT'll do real time captioning phone calls but it doesn't record them and it doesn't put them on the Internet. So don't have your conspiracy theories thrown at me Breitbart. They wrote it up terribly anyway So that's like the one thing but that's coming other pixels. It's just like Google. So committed to keeping the pixel software like really clean and basic relative to the madness that happens on every other android phone that it can feel a little bit boring and their decision to be really like understated with their design. I think it's like they've got they've. got a little bit too far. It's been like, no, no this is this is the the android phone that isn't flashy. It's just like a phone and after a while like that message gets through that like. Made a phone. Okay. Like they want it to be utilitarian to the point where it's like become a little bit boring. Thank you. Go. Has has been so long burned by Sergey Brin. Coming into Google glass event. On a hang glider. That's a real thing that happened they. US In like one of the founders landed on sage on a hang glider glass is the future and that was their last big attempt to be splashy. In it completely backfired like in every possible way

"Back to the first week of October. The trump administration blacklisted eight Chinese technology companies companies. whose technology which often contains parts from American suppliers? There's was technology that helped the Chinese government track and target Muslim leaguers in western China the sanctions are meant to cut the Chinese companies off from their American supply. Chain which of course force could also hurt that American supply chain but as marketplace's Scott Tong reports the sanctions don't really seem to be working at least not yet. A key to China Ernest surveillance system is facial recognition technology which I tried out. I uploaded my photo to a Chinese facial recognition website which offers a demo to showoff the technology and instantly. My face became one hundred data. Points for instance. My lower middle knows. Dimensions are three hundred and fifty nine units by three three hundred forty eight units these measurements add up to a unique face print. which in China can go into a database basically police contract you across the city eighty just based on your face Charles Rollei reports for the video surveillance website IPM? He says in western China millions of ethnic minority Muslim leaguers. I have their faces. Tracked and compared against databases is one police contract with the Chinese security camera. Company Hike Vision stands out and that contract specified defied that facial recognition cameras will be installed at almost one thousand mosques in just one county. According to human rights groups authorities use real time time facial recognition to detain leaguers deemed security threats an estimated one million acres have reportedly been put into what the government calls reeducation camps.

The idea is to cut them off from American suppliers that make essential. Semiconductors disk drives. Says Dalia Peterson at the the center. For Strategic and emerging technology at Georgetown Chinese domestic security experts have singled out these parts suppliers so Intel Nvidia media and then Western digital seagate. She says these firms prop up the Chinese surveillance state. As to American pension funds and index funds investing sitting in these Chinese firms Western companies are investors cannot claim denial. They really must take a hard look at what they're doing seagate told marketplace it complies with global laws. Intel's that can't always control how it's chips are used and video said it could not reply in time time and Western digital did not reply but are the US sanctions hurting the targeted Chinese firms. Not really says tech analyst. Dan Wong at Gab. Cal Dragon Reaganomics in Beijing are surviving their share price. The ones that are publicly traded barely taken a dip.

"In the straight up statistical motivation for this next story was a report from the commerce. I department this morning. That consumer spending rose four tenths of one percent last month. That is good for reasons suburban About to explain. But it's also a data point on an economic continuum if you will because what's happening now has to be compared to what happened in this economy in the past and how it might affect the future that is I grant you Ted high-concept but Sabrina bail me out. If we are what we eat then our economy is what we spend. Well basically holding up our economy take a couple of years get Yaro is a consumer psychologist and author of decoding. The new consumer mind consumer spending always a massive part of the economic health of our country. RETREA consumer spending is just what it sounds like. It's what we spend on everything from toilet paper to cable food to health care in the first quarter this year it was growing at a rate of four point six percent adjusted for inflation and the second quarter went down to three point two percent and so far this quarter. It's down to two point two percent growth. That's not bad. Consumer spending is increasing at a pretty solid rate. However it's slowing down from the pace during the middle part of Twenty Nineteen James Bond is an economist with HSA AHL market? People were excited earlier. This year we were coming off a lousy end to twenty eighteen. The stock market was looking up. The employment rate was getting better and better. Those fundamentals are still in place. Where did you see that consumers at this point a year taking a little bit of a breather that does not mean that we are going to have a bad holiday spending season on the contrary things are looking Jeff? Scott Brown is chief economist at Raymond. James Yeah the overall trend here is still pretty promising We're looking consumer spending being driven by job growth and And wage growth and those trends are likely to continue into at least in the first half twenty twenty spend away fellow consumers spend away in New York. I'm Sabri Benesch. You're for marketplace gathering. I were talking about the tax law a couple of minutes ago. Here's another angle. The House voted yesterday to roll back part of it specifically the ten thousand thousand dollar cap on state and local tax deductions salt. They're called shorthand. The new bill would temporarily ditch the limits that the law imposed on the dollar amount of those payments ayments that people can deduct from their federal income taxes. And yes no. I know the chances this thing passes the Senate or slim to less than zero. But it's a window into the affect the laws had on one corner of this economy. Real Estate Marketplace's. Amy Scott is on in Affluent Montclair New Jersey. The average property tax bill is is more than nineteen thousand dollars. Almost twice the amount homeowners can now deduct I would say it's encouraged a lot of people too especially in the higher end to sell their homes that's broker June regular with the Stanton company all that selling in high tax states like New Jersey and New York and Connecticut has led lead to a glut of expensive homes says Lawrence Yun Chief Economist with the National Association of Realtors while the buyer perspective they are willing to only only make a bid at a very big discount. Union says that's one reason prices have been growing more slowly and even declined in some places at the high. The end of the market and that price competition has filtered down to the medium high end which means that it is leading to the wealth reduction for the people who may be in the middle income bracket. It's too early to know the long term effect of all this. The cap only kicked in last year and Kim Reuben with Urban Brookings Tax Policy Center says the majority of taxpayers still came out ahead even for people who are limited in their deduction. There are other things that went on with a tax law that lowered their overall burden. Realtors say State Flake Tennessee. Florida and Texas. Have come out ahead to attracting new residents residents with their lower taxes. I'm Amy Scott for marketplace.

"No I know it's not technically the end of the year yet still. We're going to take a look back from American public media this. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is Friday today the twentieth twentieth of December. Good as always have along. Everybody so look. Here is my working hypothesis. This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic. Just the two of us all right so look. Let's do. Let's do this first of all. I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing president Finally in super-quick. What do you think of my premise? That we're going to take two weeks and everybody's GonNa go away and then we're GONNA have two more weeks of impeachment and then finally Mila January people are GonNa tuned back in again. I hope you're right that we have two weeks where everyone gets to go away. That's where I think your your Prediction may be most suspect. Be some middle of the night tweets. Well Yeah Probably Catherine Bell Washington Post. Thank you Catherine. Thanks have a nice weekend on Wall Street late on a Friday and December or on a Friday in late December.
