-Take me through a typical day. -Uh, well my days start at, like, 5am. -I go downtown, from 9am from when the fabric stores open, til they close at 6. And then I go to the store from 6 to, like, 9. And then I go to sleep at 9:30. And then I get up to do it all over again. Lord, Jesus. -Oh my gosh. -You’re sacrificing a lot. -Oh, everything. -You’re sacrificing everything, personally… -I’ll get emotional. Every time I talk about that. -What part? -Because it’s just, it’s really hard, so hard, more than I can express. -To do it all, girl, I know. Listen, you can’t tell me I don’t know. I know! -But you know what, you need help. You need a support system. Honey, if I did not have a support system, I would not be here today. You need to delgate, have people do these things for you. It may be an investment, but it’s going to be worth your sanity. -Yeah, no I understand. And I’ve always wanted to get a team, but like I said, capital is always a thing. And I always have to invest in my next thing. So I’m always saving for my next thing. -Start with one. One key person. -Yeah. -Right hand. -I know what Maxie’s going through. She has been doing this for so long by herself. There’s almost too much to bear. But, she’s gonna come to terms with some really hard truths. She needs help.

WELCOME TO THE SESSION ABOUT MICROSOFT TEAMS LIVE EVENTS. ANYONE USE SKY FOR BUSINESS. SOME OF YOU THIS IS THE NEXT GENERATION. IT’S AWESOME. YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING WITHIN THE TEAMS CLIENT , THE PRODUCTION, THE SCHEDULING, THE CONSUMPTION. LET ME SHOW YOU. HERE IS THE FLOW OF THE SCHEDULING. YOU TWO TYPES OF PRODUCTION. YOU CAN DO IT IN TEAMS OR IT CAN GET BASIC CONTROLS IN ORDER TO ADJUST THE LAYOUT AND SO ON. THIS IS FOR THE REGULAR USERS. IT’S WIDELY AVAILABLE AND YOUR TENANTS. THEN YOU HAVE THE SECOND WAY TO PRODUCE. THIS IS IN NEW IT MEANS YOU CAN BRING YOUR PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT WITH YOUR AND COLDER AND BRING YOUR OWN THAT BRING YOUR OWN WASTE AT AT THE MEETINGS. EVERYTHING IS BEING PROCESSED AND STREAMED VIA THE ASHER MEDIA SERVICES. IT’S THE METRIC WITHIN AZURE. YOU CONSUME IT IN YAMMER OR STREAM. LET’S DIVE INTO THE SCHEDULING PROCESS. THERE SOME THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SCHEDULING PROCESS. FIRST OFF, YOU CAN ONLY INVITE INDIVIDUALS AS ORGANIZERS OR PRESENTERS. THIS MEANS THEY NEED TO BE PART TO AUTHENTICATE IN ORDER TO PRESENT INTO A LIVE EVENT ALSO, YOU CANNOT INVITE GROUPS OR CHANNELS AS PART IS THOSE PRODUCING AND CREATING CONTENT. IF YOU HAVE OFFICE 365 GUEST FEDERATED OR ANONYMOUS USERS THEY CAN ONLY CONSUME THE STREAM AS ANONYMOUS USERS. THIS IS STILL IN PREVIEW. RIGHT NOW THEY CAN ONLY VIEW THE STREAM AND NOT CONTRIBUTE. IF THEY WANT TO CONTRIBUTE THEY HAVE TO HAVE A USER WITHIN OFFICE 365 TENANT. LIVE EVENTS IN PREVIEW IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN E3 AND E5 TENANT’S. THE LICENSING YOU NEED TO WORK WITH US AS AN ORGANIZER OR PRESENTER IS YOU NEED TO HAVE A TEAM LICENSE, YOU HAVE TO HAVE A SKYPE FOR BUSINESS PLAN TO LICENSE, YOU NEED TO HAVE A STREAM LICENSE EITHER PLAN ONE OR PLAN TO AND YOU ALSO NEED A CHANGE ONLINE LICENSE VIA HYBRID OR ONLINE TO DO THE SCHEDULING. LET’S DIVE IN TO HOW WE SCHEDULE MEETINGS. LIVE EVENT IS ONLY AVAILABLE VIA THE MEETINGS TAB. YOU CANNOT SCHEDULE THE A CHANNEL OR PRIVATE CHANNEL. SCHEDULE A MEETING. IT’S THE TEAM MEETING INVITE. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS YOU HAVE ORGANIZERS AS PRODUCERS OR PRESENTERS YOU CAN BITE INDIVIDUALS NOT GROUPS. YOU CAN DEFINE IF THERE ARE PRESENTER AND A PRODUCER AND YOU HAVE MULTIPLE PRODUCERS AS WELL. THIS IS PART OF THE THREE IMPORTANT ROLES WITHIN THE TEAMS MEETING. LATER TODAY I’M DOING A THEATER SESSION ON MEETINGS BEST PRACTICES. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THREE ROLES. IT’S RESPONSIBLE FOR A LAYOUT. YOU HAVE THE PRESENTER THAT ONLY HAS ONE JOB, TO MAKE SURE TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT THERE. YOU ALSO THE Q&A MODERATOR. THE Q&A MODERATOR IS NOT A SPECIFIC ROLE HERE BUT THE PRESENTERS ARE MODERATORS. IT’S QUESTIONS YOU EITHER BUBBLE UP AFTER SESSION OR YOUR SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT. THESE ROLE SHOULD BE DEFINED. YOU SHOULD PREPARE BY DIVIDING THESE ROLES BETWEEN PEOPLE AND MAKE SURE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THEIR ROLE IN THE MEETING. THIS IS A HIGHLY SCHEDULED MEETING. SCRUBS ARE NOT OKAY. YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE IT WORKS ALL THE TIME. THE NEXT STEP DEFINES THE PROPERTIES OF THE MEETING. FIRST YOU LOOK AT THE PERMISSIONS THAT’S PEOPLE AND GROUPS PEOPLE AND GROUPS THERE ARE SPECIFIC GROUPS WITHIN YOUR ORGANIZATION THAT ARE AUTHENTICATED INTO THE MEETING IT’S THE ENTIRE TENANT ACROSS ALL DOMAINS. IT’S TENANT WIDE. THEN YOU HAVE PUBLIC WERE ANONYMOUS USERS CAN JOIN AS WELL. ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE FOR ANONYMOUS USERS AT THE END OF THE SESSION. TODAY YOU NEED TO CONSUME THIS VIA THE TEAMS MOBILE CLIENT YOU DON’T NEED TO HAVE A ROLE IN THAT TENANT PRODUCING THE STREAM BUT YOU NEED TO BE SIGNED IN TO A TEAMS CLIENT THE NEXT IS THE PRODUCTION TYPE. THERE ARE TWO TYPES WE TALKED ABOUT. I WANT TO SHOW YOU QUICKSTART FIRST. THEN YOU HAVE DIFFERENT CHOICES AS WELL. YOU CAN CONTROL THE CAPABILITIES CENTRALLY THROUGH POLICIES. I RECOMMEND YOU JUST CHECK EVERYTHING. YOU WANT THE RECORDING AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD SO THEY CAN DOWNLOAD IT, EDIT IT AND PUT IT UP ON THE STREAM ON YOUTUBE OR WHATEVER. YOU WANT THE VIDEO TO BE AVAILABLE BECAUSE THAT’S THE BEAUTY OF USING LIVE EVENTS. YOU HAVE A LIVE STREAM. THEN PEOPLE CAN CONSUME IT. THERE’S A LOT OF DIFFERENT REASONS WHY PEOPLE CAN JOIN A MEETING. DOESN’T MEAN THEY DON’T WANT YOU. IT MAY MEAN THERE IN A MEETING, THEIR HOME, THEY WERE HOLD UP OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. FIRST SKYPE OF ALL THE USERS CONSUMING A MEETING IN GENERAL 50 WATCH IT LIVE AND THE OTHER HALF WATCH IT ON DEMAND. THE ON-DEMAND FEATURE IS VERY IMPORTANT. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THAT AVAILABLE. IT’S AVAILABLE FOR 180 DAYS AFTER THE RECORDING. THEN IT WILL BE GONE. YOU ALSO THE Q&A MODEL. I REALLY LIKE THE Q&A MODEL. IN NORWAY WE DON’T LIKE TO ASK QUESTIONS. SO DON’T ASK THEM. YOU CAN ASK AS ANONYMOUS USER EVEN THOUGH YOUR SIGNED IN AS AN AUTHENTICATOR YOU CAN ASK IT AS ANONYMOUS SO YOU DON’T LOOK STUPID. THIS IS A GOOD THING. WE WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND OUR MESSAGE. THAT MEANS THE Q&A MODEL I REALLY LIKE. I THINK MEETINGS BETWEEN 30 AND 40 PEOPLE AND UP TO 10,000 SHOULD BE A LIVE EVENT. THERE’S NOT VERY MUCH INTERACTION ANYWAY SO LET’S MAKE IT A LIVE EVENT AVAILABLE ON DEMAND WITH Q&A. MOVING ON. WHEN WE HAVE SCHEDULED A MEETING IT’S A REGULAR TEAM SET UP. WE GET THE LINK THAT WE GET THE SENSE THE ATTENDEES. THOSE GETTING THIS INVITE IS ONLY THE PRODUCERS AND ORGANIZERS WE NEED TO GET THAT LINK TO CREATE A NEW INVITE FOR THOSE ANONYMOUS AND USERS OR THE CONSUMPTION TEAM. PUT ON THE INTERNET COPY ON TEAMS, WHATEVER. THAT’S THE SCHEDULING PROCESS. LET’S LOOK AT THE QUICKSTART EXPERIENCE YOU WILL FIND THE MEETING IN YOUR MEETINGS TAB. CLICK JOIN. YOU SEE IT’S THE SAME JOIN EXPERIENCE AS ALWAYS. YOU CAN DIVINE VIDEO, AUDIO COMIC SURE THE DEVICES ARE OKAY, AND SIGN IN AND JOIN US PRODUCER. THIS WILL BE A SPECIAL VIEW ONLY FOR PRODUCERS. IF YOU’RE RUNNING A LIVE EVENT EVEN THOUGH IT’S A SMALL LIVE EVENT YOU PROBABLY ONCE UP TO PEOPLE. ONE IN THE PRODUCE REVIEW AND ONE IN THE PRESENTER VIEW. THE PRODUCER CAN BE A Q&A MODERATOR. THE PRESENTER SHOULD NEVER BE A Q&A MODERATOR. HERE YOU HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS. YOU SEE PEOPLE JOIN. YOU CAN SWITCH BETWEEN THE SOURCES. YOU HAVE TWO SOURCES. YOU HAVE Q WHICH IS WHERE YOU DEFINE WHAT YOU WANT TO SHOW AND THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE ACTUALLY SHOWING. PRESSING SENT TO LIVE. IT WILL GO OVER TO THE LIVE ACTUAL EVENT. YOU CAN FIND YOUR VIEW HERE BEFORE YOU PUBLISH IT YOU CAN ALSO ADD CONTENT AND VIDEOS. YOU HAVE THOSE THREE COMBINATIONS. IT’S BASIC IT MAY IMPROVE OVER TIME. THIS IS THE BASIC FUTURES YOU GET QUICKSTART. IT MAY BE GOOD ENOUGH IN MOST THE SCENARIOS. SO YOU SEE THIS IS THE LIVE STREAM. THEY ARE READY TO START THE STREAM AS WELL. BEFORE HE WE START YOU SEE WE HAVE THE Q&A MODEL. IT’S AVAILABLE WITHIN TEAMS. TYPICALLY I POST A MODERATOR SET UP TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE ASK QUESTIONS AND THEY CAN ASK THEM ANONYMOUSLY. THAT’S A GOOD FEATURE. THIS IS PART OF THE TEAM EXPERIENCE. NO EXTRA WEBSITE. SO THEN YOU’RE READY TO START YOUR EVENT. BE AWARE OF TWO THINGS. IT’S ABOUT 10 TO 20 SECONDS DELAY FOR THE STREAM. YOU CANNOT RETURN FROM THIS POINT. IF YOU START THE STREAM AND YOU END IT IT’S AND IT. YOU CAN’T RESTART IT. SO MAKE SURE YOU START ON TIME OR COUPLE MINUTES BEFORE THE STREAM SHOULD START. THIS IS NOT A PRACTICE RUN. THIS IS A LIVE FULL EVENT. IF YOU NEED TO PRACTICE YOU NEED TO CREATE OTHER EVENTS. THIS MAY CHANGE IN THE FUTURE. THIS IS HOW IT IS IN THE PREVIEW. YOU ALSO SEE HERE THE NUMBER OF ATTENDEES WATCHING. THIS IS A NEW FEATURE SO YOU GET TO SEE HOW MANY ARE WATCHING THE STREAM. THE ZERO, FIVE, 10,000. THAT’S REAL COOL. THEN YOU CAN CHANGE THE VIEW DURING THE PRESENTATION. YOU CAN CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE AND VIDEO. HERE YOU SEE GET BACKGROUND BLUR. IT’S A VERY GOOD FEATURE. NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO REARRANGE YOUR OFFICE. YOU CAN DO IT AT HOME AND YOU CAN DO IT IN A CROWDED SPACE AS WELL. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE CONTENT ONLY. YOU CAN GET A PERFECT SET UP. HERE WE HAVE A QUESTION ANONYMOUS OF COURSE. THIS IS BEING RECORDED. EVERYTHING HAPPENS WITHIN THE SAME PAIN. WHEN YOU AND IT ENDED. THERE’S NO TURNING BACK. YOU CAN’T RESTART AGAIN. YOU GET A WARNING AS WELL. MAKE SURE THERE’S NO TURNING BACK. THAT WAS THE PRODUCTION FOR QUICKSTART. LET’S SEE HOW WE CONSUME THIS. THIS IS RENDERED THRASHER MEDIA SERVICES. YOU GET IT FROM WITHIN AZURE. ALL USERS WILL GO ON THE INTERNET TO GET THE STREAM IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF INTERNAL USERS THEN YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT IF YOU NEED TO HAVE A THIRD PARTY TO OPTIMIZE THE STREAM. BEFORE THAT THE END OF THE STREAM YOU WILL SEE IN THE MEETING INVITE YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THE RECORDING Q&A REPORT AND ATTENDEE REPORT. IN THE SAME OF YOU WE STAY IN THE TEAMS CLIENT. LOOKING AT THIS YOU GET SOME GIBBERISH AND UNITS CLEAN US UP TO CREATE A REPORT. THIS IS DELIVERED VIA AZURE. IF YOU HAVE ANTICIPATED YOU WILL HAVE A LOT OF INTERNAL USERS THAT WILL CONSUME YOUR STREAM IN ORDER TO BREAK YOUR BREAKOUT YOU CONSIDER TALKING COLLECTIVE HIGH STREAM IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ONE CLIENT ACCESSING THE STREAM AND DISTRIBUTED WITHIN THE INTERNAL NETWORK. IT’S QUITE A LOT. IF YOU HAVE 500 OF THOSE IT MAY GO TO HELL. YOU WILL HAVE A POOR EXPERIENCE. IT’S GREAT DURING PILOT AND RUBBISH DURING PRODUCTION. IT’S 98. IT’S ONE KIND DOWNLOADING THE STREAM AND DISTRIBUTING THIS AS A MISSION. HERE’S THE EXPERIENCE JOINING AS ANONYMOUS. CLICK THE JOIN BUTTON. YOU SEE THEM TEAMS DEVICE. YOU WILL SEE IT WILL JOIN. THE MEETING IS CONSUMED WITHIN THE MOBILE PLATFORM. THAT’S A ANONYMOUS USER. YOU NEED TO SIGN INTO A TEAM ACCOUNT. YOU CAN CONSUME IT REGARDLESS. FOR AUTHENTICATED USERS YOU NEED TO BE LOGGED ENSURE TEAMS CLIENT IN ORDER TO CONSUME THE STREAM. YOU ALSO GET ACCESS TO Q&A MODULE HERE. YOU GET A Q&A EXPERIENCE AS WELL ON ANY PLATFORM. IT’S THE SAME LAYOUT REGARDLESS OF WEB, DESKTOP, OR MOBILE. THAT’S WAS A SCHEDULING EXPERIENCE, THE PRODUCTION FOR QUICKSTART, HOW WE CONSUME IT. LET’S LOOK AT THE NEXT STEP. YOU HAVE A COUPLE OPTIONS HERE AS WELL. WE HAVE LIVE CAPTIONING AND Q&A. YOU NEED TO ENABLE THE STREAM LICENSE YOU HAVE TO GIVE A ROLE TO INVITE TO A MEETING. THAT’S WHEN THIS WILL LIGHT UP. SO USE THE REAL-TIME MESSAGING PROTOCOL. ANY THIRD-PARTY ENCODER THAT SUPPORTS THAT CAN PRODUCE THE STREAM. LET’S TAKE A LOOK. YOU CAN ALSO INVITE VIA STREAM. DOESN’T HAVE TO BE IN TEAMS BUT IT CAN BE IN TEAMS. TO HAVE ALL THE SETTINGS SET UP IN TEAMS GO TO CREATE, LIVE EVENTS, AND THEN YOU HAVE ALL THE SETTINGS HERE. YOU PROVIDE THE CONTENT DELIVERY TO THE URL AND PUT THAT INTO THE ENCODER. THEY KNOW WHERE TO SEND THE OUTPUT. EVERYTHING GOES OVER THE NETWORK. YOU CAN USE SUPER PROFESSIONAL TV PRODUCTION STUFF. I TALK TO CUSTOMER ABOUT THIS AND THEY PRODUCED TV GRADE INTERNAL CONTENT. THEY SAID IF THEY WERE TO CREATE THIS THEMSELVES AND CREATE A BEEN WITH THE ABILITY TO ADD ALL USERS TO CONSUME SUCH AS DREAM IT WOULD COST THEM A LOT OF MONEY. JUST TO BUILD IT. NOW YOU GET IT FOR FREE IN TEAMS. [ APPLAUSE ] SO IT’S AVAILABLE TESTED BY MICROSOFT IS THIS. YOU CAN FOLLOW THIS LINK TO SEE AT ANY TIME WHAT IS TESTED. THIS IS NOT PURE SUPPORTABILITY. IT’S ONLY REGARDING THOSE THAT OF ACTUALLY BEEN TESTED AND YOU CAN FIND GUIDANCE ON HOW TO SET IT UP ON THE INDIVIDUAL PAGES. SO THE STUDIO IS FREE. YOU HAVE ALL THE OTHERS. THE REQUIREMENT THAT THEY SUPPORT OUR PIM. HOW DO YOU CONSUME THIS? RIGHT NOW WE USE AN EXTERNAL ENCODER. IT’S ONLY AVAILABLE FOR USERS INTERNAL TO YOUR ORGANIZATION. THEY NEED TO BE SIGNED IN FOR SPECIFIC USERS YOU NEED TO CONSUME IT THROUGH STREAM. THIS IS IN PREVIEW AND THIS IS THE NEW FEATURE. THIS WILL CHANGE A LOT IN THE COMING MONTHS DURING THE NEXT YEAR. LOOKOUT FOR THE POSSIBILITIES. WHAT I KNOW IS THEY ARE ENABLING STREAMS TO BE ACCESSED ANONYMOUSLY AS WELL. LOOKOUT FOR THAT. YOU CAN STILL USE THE SAME CONTENT PROVIDERS TO OPTIMIZE THE STREAM SO IT DOESN’T BREAK YOUR NETWORK. IT’S STILL PRODUCED THRASHER MEDIA SERVICES. IF YOU DO PRODUCE GOOD CONTENT EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE IT. MAKE SURE YOU DON’T BREAK YOUR NETWORK. THAT’S THE PROCESS. SCHEDULING WITHIN TEAMS. YOU HAVE TWO TYPES OF MEETINGS. PROBABLY WHAT YOU WANT TO GIVE ALL THE USERS OR A SUBSET OF USERS ASSIGN THROUGH POLICY. YOU HAVE EXTERNAL ONLY AVAILABLE FOR INTERNAL USERS. USE THE CONTENT DELIVERY METRIC. YOU CAN OPTIMIZE THIRD-PARTY. IT’S TEAMS OR STREAM. SO MY NAME IS STOWELL HANSEN. I’M FROM NORWAY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION.
Hi, friends! Today I would like to tell about one thing, about which I’ve been asked to tell long ago. But I kept silence, because that thing hasn’t not fully come out in all its glory yet, so to say.
I even have not familarize with the board, but anyway, the project is very interesting, so I cannot avoid it anymore and not to tell about the thing: ZX Spectrum Next. Everyone, who are in touch with Spectrum, have heard about it, no doubt, but very few know about what it is and which stage is the project at. So, ZX Spectrum Next. What is it for? All the matter was started because Spectrum has a very vibrant and active fan-base. They play games on it, make all the interesting things, and very much adore it. They don’t plan to forget it, but still, time inexoraby passes, and using of Spectrum becomes inconvenient and problematic these days. Even if nobody expects fully modern usability from Spectrum, but anyway one wants to get a quality picture, which will look decently on modern TV, at least. Again, one don’t want to spend an eternity to load something from tape. I want to specify, that I will talk exclusively about original hardware, not our beloved clones. Now then, altough you could you RGB connection since 128K Spectrum model and get and a bearable picture, but anyway, on modern TVs and monitors it’s not perfect and then again, not every modern TV has a SCART input, leave aside those monitors. Surely, if you have straight hands and some knowledge about electronics, then everything is real. But simple users usually just want to play that “Jet Set Willy” or “Dizzy” without any techno-magic.
The similar situation is with loading from tape. All these recorders and cassettes are absolutely archaic. Yeah, that’s very nostalgic and old-school and everything. But when it’s used frequently,
all the charm disappears, because it’s unreliable and veeeery slow. Surely, you can load games from a phone or a tablet, and so forth, But it’s very doubtful pleasure, which, again, involves some magic when tuning the volume, some questions with cables and all that stuff. Of course, after gaining some experience, these questions are not that difficult, but anyway, many people slip up on this stage of getting familiar with Spectrum. Don’t even get me to start about those machines from Amstrad period, which don’t have an input for external audio signal, so, you have to use those Chinese car adapters with all the consequences. Besides the mentioned “delights”, some models have another nuances, which I’ve spoken about in the previous video, dedicated to Spanish games, Which very few people have seen, though the topic is interesting. So, if you haven’t seen the video about Spaniards, then welcome. Getting back, all these problems are solvable. With the help of some additional devices you can connect Spectrum via HDMI, get stereo sound, instantly load games from SD-card, connect Spec to the Internet and so forth. But it doesn’t look aestatically pleasing and it’s not convenient, when there is a ton of hardware attached to the back of your Spectrum, because any slightest movement can break the contact, hanging the computer. More to say, Spectrum connectors have a tendency to get dirty. That’s why some Spectrum entusiasts have decided to fix the existing state of affairs and to make a Spectrum, which will match modern reality. Nobody wanted to make ZX Spectrum fully modern, of course. There are powerful new PCs for modern tasks. In opposite, Spectrum is valuable as it is: 8-bit, vintage and nostalgic, but nonetheless, convenience and some development was nessesary (I will tell about it later) Initial idea of making new Spectrum, which would replace original 80-s machines for everyday use in Spectrum fans’ homes and would make an evolutonary push in 8-bit industry by implementing new features have come to two enthusiasts. They were: widely known Victor Trucco, famous for his hardware inventions for Spectrum and Fabio Belavenuto, key person in Brazil MSX scene, Which has a soft spot on Spec as well. So, these two guys have begun to develop a new Spectrum. The project have received a name “TBBlue” And after the release of the first working board version and after all nessesary core software had been written, one legendary man, Rick Dickinson, have joined the team. He was a designer, which have given looks to all original Sinclair Spectrums and ZX80 and ZX81 computers. And no matter what, but the design of Sinclair machines has always been awesome! Jim Bagley, coder of such famous games as Cabal and Midnight Resistance, also joined the team. He worked on development of new video modes and hardware sprites The last on the list, “last but not least”, as Brits say, is Henrique Olifiers, game designer, co-founder of Bossa Studios and big fan of Spectrum, which joined the team to work on software part. All in all, the team, that have gathered, was no-nonsence. Now, I’d want to tell about technical specifications of the new Spectrum. Here we have some these features: Z80 Processor, implemented in FPGA, with clock frequency of 3.5 Mhz in standard mode and with 7 and 14 Mhz in turbo mode. By the way, initially there meant to be a 28 Mhz mode, but it was canceled due to system instability. There is a whole 1Mbyte of RAM in Next, which can be extended to 2Mbytes, although it was planned to be only 512Kbytes and first boards have exactly that RAM size. I’d like to remind you, that Z80 can manage only 64Kbytes of RAM without any tricks. Sound in Next is managed by mind-boggling 3(!) AY chips with stereo output. Besides the standard Spectrum graphics capabilities here we have: graphics mode with 256 colors per pixel, which is called “Layer 2”, hardware sprites and scrolling. All in all, there is everything that was badly needed in classic Spectrum. By the way, especially tricky minds can improve this 8-bit monster capabilities by plugging Raspberry PI into the board, which will add CPU with 1Ghz clock speed and achieve 512 MBytes of RAM, which is an astronomical number for Spectrum. I can’t really tell what is it needed for. You can connect a new Spectrum to a TV set or a monitor via three methods: RGB, VGA or HDMI. SD Card works as HDD here. But saving to and loading from tape are also available, there are corresponding sockets for that. In addition, there is a standard Spectrum extension port with all corresponding features. Besides that, you can plug additional ps/2 keyboard, joysticks (by the way, 3-button ones from Sega MD are supported) And for special buffs, there is an optional Wi-Fi module All this hardware should be put into modern-authetic-nostalgic case, designed by Rick Dickinson. However, board size allows hardcore nostalgators to put inside the very first, “rubber” Spectrum case. But in this case, one should to saw and drill that poor old case a bit. But it worth the effort: it turns to be rather authetic. When the project have aquired its shape, Henrique Olifiers have started the kickstarter campaign and the project have aquired a huge sum of money: 723390 pounds for the period since April, 23 till May, 23 of 2017. (That’s almost a million dollars, by the way) 3113 backers invested their money into project of reviving Spectrum and that’s a lot for Spectum scene, which is really small. The price policy was as such: caseless(i.e. board only) Next costs 119 pounds, Basic variant costs 210 pounds, and full-blown kit, which means Raspberry PI, Wi-Fi module and so forth installed, have a price of 275 pounds. All in all, it’s not cheap. Now, to the main course: is ZX Spectrum Next out or not yet? It’s OK to say that it’s partially released: according to the schedule, it’s almost a year since Next should have beed sent to backers, But only buyers of minimal kit(board only) have received their computers. Some people have bought more than one computer, specifically for selling, and because of that, they almost instantly appeared on ebay, with a sky-high price, of course, but nonetheless, they were bought the as quickly as possible, and now buying of Next board can easily be problematic. All in all, it’s OK to say that it was all right with the first batch, although after the delivery there were some questions and troubles. In general, they were incompatibility problems with third-party keyboards, connection problems with some TV sets, in particular, sometimes there was no sound through HDMI connection Surely, there were some bugs and imperfections in NextOS. By the way, Spectrum Next supports our beloved TR-DOS and “Pentagon” mode. So to speak, all these problems were expected and natural for such new and unpolished product, which was developed with efforts of a few people. And here we should show some respect to the developers: they have updated the firmware, and have solved the problems of compatibility and connection After some time, all problems have been solved and shortly, all those guys who had some troubles have managed to connect their Nexts and to configure them properly, and so forth. So, boards are boards, but most backers have waited for Next in all its glory. And here they ran into some serous trouble: first, the Chinese company that managed the case and plastic parts, began to experience some troubles and that was the cause of first delivery schedule failure. And than, the hell broke loose: that company broke the contract without any explanation. That was a serious blow, which automatically meant, that the team needed to find new supplier of plastic parts, establish production process from scratch, etc. And after all that, the final blow was the death of a team member, legendary Rick Dickinson, who managed exactly the above: keyboard and case. All those things naturally leaded to a very long shipment delay, and the full version of Spectrum Next isn’t in Spectrum fans’ homes up to this day. Thats where all the rumors have started to appear, and even I was asked(for some reason) if the Next is a stillborn project just like Spectrum Vega. And that’s where I fell into stupor. Comrades, who said that Spectrum Vega has not been released? Where have you got that shit? It has been succesfully released and often comes up on ebay. Yeah, another matter is that it’s functionally poor, absolutely useless and expensive emulator. But the console have been released. The portable Spectrum Vega+, though, has truly sad story. Now, to the question if Spectrum Next is a fradulent or simply failed project. Will it be ever released, and if so, when? I can’t be 100% sure, but as a person, who tracks the situation a bit, I’ll share my opinion. So, first: I think that Spectrum Next isn’t a stillborn project. There are very respectable and famous minds behind it. Even during the darkest moments developers never disappeared from sight, but comprehensively told about the current state of affairs. Will Next ever be released? “Yes, it will” and I’m almost certain. Of course, if there won’t be any force majeure. When will the Next be released? I don’t know. But I hope, that it won’t be later than late 2019. At this moment developers are working on fixing and improving some keyboard nuances, which they reported in recent update on project status. They’re probably the last nuances before the sending of case and keyboard to mass-production And besides that, there was a recent update of the operating system. All in all, project doesn’t look abandoned or fradulent, and there is almost no resent about a year delay in the official group: everybody are patiently waiting, and there are almost no haters. But the lack of haters in Next’s home country is compensated by a fierce rejection, which it gets in Russia. It looks like bashing Next is a question of honor for every 2nd Russian spectrumist. Though, I should note, that between shouts of agressive beggars, which wouldn’t ever buy Next, sometimes there are dire critics from the guys, which are adequate and have a knowledge of hardware. I have a very little knowledge of electronics. OK, to be precise, I understand absolutely nothing. So, there won’t be any reasoning. I just mention again the fact, that there are not only closet critics, from our Spectrum scene but also reather reasonable ones. Also, I want to mention, that we have our Next, which is called “ZX Evolution”, it also has many features and can do many things. So, what’s more progressive, ZX Spectrum Next or ZX Evolution? I don’t want to judge, because I don’t have any of them. But there are some points, where Spectrum Next definitely wins. First, it’s astonishing appearance. Yeah, cased Nexts are not for sale yet, but there are prototypes. And I hope, that mass-production will start soon. Our evolution don’t have such original design, even potentially, and can only be inserted into standard PC cases. I don want even to talk about putting Evolution into original old Spec. But nobody even needs it here. Yes, I understand, that it’s not the main thing and real spectrumist shouldn’t even bother about that and all that things. But the wrapping does matter for such a affluenza-affected guy like me. I like when things are nice and shiny, and have pleasant looks. The box also fells to the same catagory, as it’s simply eye-candy. PR and hype around this computer are, IMHO, also definitely work for the better, because, thanks to popular attention, and technical capabilities, Next has all chances to become new standard in retro gaming and demo-scene. I’m not stating, that it will be so, but there are definitely some premises for that. ZX Evolution, on the other hand, despite all its features, have failed to become the new world standard, which all ZX game developers should follow. It have stayed a fairly rare computer, which is owned by only a few people, in comparison with Next preorders quantity. By the way, this is the reason why we making our extended version of Power Blade specifically for Next, but not for TSConf(advanced firmware for Evolution). By the way, Henrique Olifiers have written about our game in his updates on Kickstarter, but for some reason have caled it “Power Blade 2”. But it’s forgivable: he’s a Spectrum fan, and is not expected to sort out NES titles. More to say: I’ve been asked, how can we make a game for Next without having any, with out any chance to test our game? Nope, guys, our developers have their own Next, and even not only a single one. Surely, they are boards, but still, we have them. By the way, there is a full video walkthrough of the 1st location in the playlist, dedicated to Power Blade development. It’s fully colored specifically for Next. I won’t glut the channel with similar videos of the same level, so, it’s available via link only. If anybody interests in Power Blade development progress, look at playlist, or subscribe to our group, link is in video description. But let’s get back to our business: ZX Evolution also has huge advantage in comparison with Next, and it’s the price. Yeah, Evo cost is rather high as well, but it’s far from Next’s prices. It’s clear, that Next is a ready-to-use product, not a DIY, like Evolution, but nonetheless, price difference is significant. Now, let’s get to the question whether it’s worth to plan purchasing of Spectrum Next after its release, and if so, where to get it. All the hassle is because Next isn’t planned for free sale, so, only those who backed the kickstarter campaign, will get their computer. There is a possibility, that, if there will be demand, the team will make a larger batch. I don’t know, will it be so, or not, but there is some demand definitely. A huge number of Speccy fans failed to back the campaign on Kickstarter, but nonetheless, they want to become happy owners of Spectrum Next. Which means, that right after the release it will instantly appear on ebay for some sky-high price. Judging by the hype, which could be seen after the board release, I doubt that the price will be much lower than $500. That’s why I’m not dreaming about Next, I can’t allow myself to spend $500 on a toy. More to say, I’m not deprived of Spectrums, anyway. Even if I’d have spare $500, it’s unlikely that I’d spend it on Next, because at this moment there is nothing to play on Next, besides classic Spectrum games. I’m not interested in any of Next titles, absolutely. They’re mainly only mediocre AGD games. So, being inhumble, I should mention, that Power Blade is still the top project for Next, although we don’t utilize all Next’s powerful features. And that’s it. Anyway, it would be interesting to try Next and I’m really curious about it. That’s all, what I can tell on topic for now. Good luck, everyone!
LIZ: GREAT TO SEE YOU. LET’S GET RIGHT TO FORMER VISOR TO PRESIDENT CLINTON, DOUG SCHOEN. A LOT TO BREAK DOWN. TRUMP IS SAYING REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO WIN BACK THE HOUSE AND MORE SEATS IN THE SENATE.>>IF THE DEMOCRATIC PRIORITIES, ONLY ONE OF THREE IS LEGISLATE AND THE EMPHASIS IS ON THIS IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, WAR IT ULTIMATELY PROVES TO BE, IT SURE HELPS THE REPUBLICANS AND DOESN’T HELP THE DEMOCRATS. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT ACTION ON THE MATTERS THEY CARE ABOUT. JOBS, HEALTHCARE, THE ENVIRONMENT. AND WE ARE NOT INTERESTED. THEY HAD IT WITH IMPEACHMENT. POLL AFTER POLL.>>THE MAJORITY MEMBERS SAY THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH FOR IMPEACHMENT. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE SLEEPY JOE BIDEN.>>HE SHOWED SLEEPY JOE AS HE CALLS HIM IS LEADING HIM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY INCLUDING THE SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST. SO HE UNDERSTANDS THE PRIORITY FOR HIM IS TO KNOCK JOE BIDE’ DOWN. THAT BEING SAID, IF JOE BIDEN IS THE ONE WHO HAS TO FRONT FOR A LEFT-WING DEMOCRATIC PARTY APPARENTLY LED BY THE SQUAD EMPHASIZING IMPEACHMENT, THAT ONLY HELPS THE PRESIDENT’S REELECT. LIZ: IF THE MUELLER PROBE DIDN’T EXIST, THE REAL HEADLINES WOULD BE HOW FAR LEFT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS. WE HAVE BEEN COVERING IT. PELOSI BUTTING HEAD WITH JERRY NADLER. YOUR TAKE ON THAT.>>THERE IS BIG PRESSURE FOR IMPEACHMENT. JERRY NADLER IS SAYING JUST IMPEACH HIM NOW. DON’T EVEN HAVE SCENE SQUIREY. SO THERE — DON’T EVEN HAVE AN INQUIRY. THERE IS PRESSURE TO IMPEACH AND INVESTIGATE. SO THE PARTY IS BEING PULLED LEFT. AS YOU CORRECTLY SAY. LIZ: THEY ARE GOING HOME TO THEIR CONSTITUENTS RIGHT NOW EMPTY HANDED. THEY DON’T HAVE A LOT OF LEGISLATIVE VICTORIES. YOU KNOW WHAT? THERE ARE A LOT OF MEDIA HEADLINES ABOUT PELOSI SITTING DOWN WITH ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ TO SETTLE THEIR BLOOD FEUD, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SAY WHO CARE. WE DON’T WANT YOU TO GREEN ROOM HOPPING. GET TO WORK. WE SENT TO YOU D.C. TO DO THAT. STOP SPEAKING ABOUT YOU. IT’S ABOUT AMERICA.>>THAT’S RIGHT. IT’S WHAT I HAVE BEEN SAYING BOTH HERE AND ARTICLES I HAVE WRITTEN ON foxbusiness.com. — FOXNEWS.COM. LIZ: THERE IS A CIVIL WAR, WHO CARES ABOUT THEM PASSING THE PEACE PIPE? WHAT A DISTRACTION, WHAT A WASTE OF TIME.>>THEY WILL BE FIGHTING AGAIN BY NEXT WEEK. JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE.

clients as downtown Sacramento is thank God I live an hour and 10 20 minutes
away from there but I just want to tell you what happens when I get to work I
have to clean up the poop and the pee off of my doorstep I have to clean up
the syringes I have to politely ask the people who I care for I care for these
people that are homeless to move their tents out of the way of my mind the
business might the door to my business I have to find off people that push their
way into my shop that are homeless and on drugs because you won’t arrest them
for drug offenses I have to apologize to my clients as to why they can’t get into
my door because there’s somebody is sleep there because they’re not getting
the help they need I talked to the police officers they
told me to contact you they want to do something and they can you change the
lies so I want to know what you’re gonna do for us the ones that are unhappy you
want to make a stinky sanctuary State you want to make it comfortable for
everybody except for the people that work hard and have tried their hardest
to get along in life and now we have to change that because of your loss your
liberal idea ideology is not working and I don’t know who you’re trying to please
while you sit in your million-dollar home and you don’t have to look at what
we have to look at there’s hardworking people out there

>>Stuart: ACROSS THE STATION FEWER PEOPLE ARE BUYING LOTTERY TICKETS. ULDN’T YOU THINK WITH THE ECONOMY THE WAY IT IS, MORE PEOPLE WILL BE TAKING THEIR CHANCES WITH A QUICK PICK? APPARENTLY NOT. SO SAYS MY NEXT GUESS. HE IS PROFESSOR JOHN KENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF IL■LINOIS. PROFESSOR, WOULD YOU EXPLAIN WHY LOTTRY SALES ARE DOWN?>>I’M GOING TO THROW YOU A RVE. I THINK PEOPLE ARE GETTING SMARTER. THEY’RE TIRED OF■ THROWING THEI MONEY AWAY, THROWING IT INTO THE TOILEOF THE LOTTERY. THEY’RE STARTING TO PUT THOSE DOLLARS BAC INTO THE CONSUMER ECONOMY. THEY HAD RATHER SAVE THOSE DOLLARS AND PUT THEM INTO REQUIREMENT CD TYPES OF INVESTMENTS. THIS IS ACTUALLY GOOD NEWS FOR THE ECONOMY. AND THE SMARTEST THING WE COULD DO IS INCOURAGE PEOPLE NOT TO PLAY THE LOTTERY BUT TO GET ■ REINVESTED IN THE CONSUMER ECONOMY. IT WOULD HAVE A MULTIPLIER EFFECT. >>Stuart: PROFESSOR, I’M SURPRISED TO HEAR THIS. I THINK TERRIFIC NEWS THAT WE ARE DELIVERING TO US. HOW ABOUT THIS: IS IT POSSIBLE THE GAMBLIN MARKET IS BECOMING SATUTED? WHEN I FIRST CAME TO THIS COUNTRY 35 YEARS AGO YOU CODN’T GAMBLE EXCEPT IN LAS VEGAS AND EVENTUALLY NEW JERSEY. I CAN GO ANYWHERE NOW AND TAKE A CHANCE. >>ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW, WE HAD IN THE 19 — IN 1999 T■HE U.S. NATIONAL GAMBLE BEING IMPACT STUDY COMMISSION CALLED FOR A MORE CORE YUM ON THE EXPANSION OF GAMBLING INCLUDING ROLLBACKS ON VARIOUS GAMES IN THE STAD LOTTERIES. WE HAD THIS U.S. FEDERAL COMMISSION THAT SAID THIS IS LOSE/LOSE FOR THE UNITED STATES AND FOR THE WORLD ECONOMY. YOU DIDN’T SEE FDR IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION SAYING WE CAN GAMBLE OURSELVES RICH. LET’S BUILD CASINOS. ACTUALLY GAMBLING IS THE LIKE THROWING GASOLINE ON THE RECESSION. AND PEOPLE ARE GONNA HAVE TO DECIDE, GOVERNMENT O■@ICIALS ARE GOING TO HAVE ONTO DECIDE IF THEY’RE GOING TO KEEP ON GAMBLING THIS MONEY AWAY OUT OF THE CONSUMER ECONOMY OR PUT IT BACK INTO THE CONSUMER ECONOMY AND STIMULATE THAT ECONOMY. THAT WOULD BE A HALF TRIAL DOLLAR STIMULUS. Stuart: BUT YOU’RE FORGETTING SOMETHING. LEGALIZED LOTTERY GAMBLING THE IS MOST EFFICIENT WAY OF TAXING POOR PEOPLE. >>RIGHT. THINK OF THE ETHICS OF THIS. WE TALK ABOUT ETHICS IN VARIOUS BUSINESS CONNOTATION. WE HAVE GOVERNMENT ADVERTISING SOMETHING THAT NO OTHER BUSINESS COULD ADVERTISE BECAUSE IT WOULD BE FRAUDULENT FOR THEM TO DO SO. WE HAVE GOVERNMENTS PROMOTING SOMETHING THEY KNOW CREATES NEW ADDICTED GAMBLERS. THE NATIONAL COMMISSION COMPARED THIS TO DRUG ADDICTION. THEY SAID THESE VIDEO LOTTERY TERMINALS, ELECTRONIC GAMBLING IS LIKE THE CRACK COCAINE TO CREATING NEW ADDICTED GAMBLERS. GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE FEEDING ADDICTION, PREYING ON THEIR OWN CITIZENS. WE SHOULD STOP THIS PREDATORY TYPE OF GAMBLING AND REINVEST IN THE CONSUMERECONOMY. >>Stuart: PROFESSOR WE’RE OUT OF TIME BUT HEARD YOUR MESSAGE LOUD AND CLEAR.
MORNING. FIRST TOP STORY THIS HOUR, FIRST TOP STORY THIS HOU , UNITED TECHNOLOGIES RAYTHEON MERGE IN AEROSPACE INDUSTRY 8 BILLION DOLLARS COMBINED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT INVESTMENT, ONE HEDGE FUND CERTAINLY IS PUSHING BACK HOWEVER BILL ACKMAN SAYING IT MAKES NO SENSE, HE IS READY TO PUBLICLY DENOUNCE IT JOINING ME RIGHT NOW CEO OF RAYTHEONCOM KENNEDY WITH CEO CHAIRMAN OF UNITED TECHNOLOGIES GREGG HAYS HAVE YOU GOTTEN BACK TO BILL FOR LETTER HE SET ON.>>YOU I WILL BE TALKING TO BILL NEXT DAY OR SO I HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO PERSONALLY SEE HIM BUT I WILL DO THAT.>>WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THE DELUSION OUT OF THIS DEAL SAYING THAT EXISTING SHAREHOLDERS LIKE HIMSELF WILL BE DILUTED WHY IT MAKES NO SENSE.>>I THINK YOU GOT TO STEP BACK THINK ABOUT THIS AS LONG-TERM WHY ARE WE DOING THIS MERGER, CLEARLY, BRINGING THESE TWO GREAT COMPANIES TOGETHER WITH TECHNOLOGY, WITH THE CASH FLOWS WITH THE INVESTMENTS, AND THE PEOPLE, WE ARE GOING IS TO HAVE UNPRECEDENTED OOBLT TO MEET CUSTOMERS DEMANDS LONG TERM INVEST HIRE A LOT OF PEOPLE, AND I THINK IMPORTANTLY WE ARE GOING TO GENERATE A LOT OF CASH. IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE FIRST YEAR TOGETHER WITH RAYTHEON, I WOULD EXPECT 8 BILLION FREE-CASH FLOW ON BILLION EBITDA CONTINUING TO GROW DOUBLE-DIGIT RATES AT LEAST NEAR FUTURE IMPORTANTLY, WHAT YOU HAVE TO KEEP THAT IN MIND THIS IS NOT A DEFENSIVE A CHARACTERIZING IT WE BELIEVER TECHNOLOGY THAT TOM HAS TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE AT UTS ABLE US TO DO THINGS NOBODY ELSE CAN DO, I THINK THAT STORY IS RESONATED WITH INVESTORS PEOPLE WONDER IS THAT GOOD DEAL I CAN’T MAGIC A BETTER DEAL THAN COMING TOGETHER A MERGER OF EQUALS TWO GREAT COMPANIES NOT JUST GREAT FINANCIAL PERFORMANCES BUT ENFORCING AT FOREFRONT WHAT WITH A CUSTOMERS WANT AND NEED.>>MANY ANALYSTS ON WALL STREET UPGRADED OR TALKED POSITIVELY ABOUT IT ONE I AM LOOKING AT RIGHT HERE, OFFERING COMPELLING COMBINATION IN LARGE DEFENSE GROWTH VERTICALS HYPE SONIC IFR, ENERGY RELATED AS WELL AS COMMERCIAL AEROSPACE LET’S TALK YOUR TECHNOLOGY WHERE YOU THINK IT CAN GO GIVE US A SENSE WHAT HAVE YOU DO WITH ALL THAT CASH ONCE EMERGENCY DECLARATION.>>RIGHT OFF THE BAT, THE COMBINED COMPANIES WILL HAVE 8 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT. AND THAT IS KEY BECAUSE IT ALLOWS US TO TAKE THAT TO UNDERLYING TECHNOLOGY, BY THE WAY, SUPPORTS DEFENSE PART OF THE BUSINESS ALSO HE COMMERCIAL PART I THINK WHAT WE RECOGNIZE, AND WHEN I GOT TOGETHER WITH GREG WE LOOKED AT THIS, A OVER A YEAR AGO LOOKED AT COMBINED TECHNOLOGY CAN DO FOR BOTH THE COMMERCIAL FRONT, AND ALSO FOR THE DEFENSE FRONT. FOR EXAMPLE, ON DEFENSE FRONT, THE TECHNOLOGY, THAT PRATT & WHITNEY HAS RELATIVE TO ETRANSFER MATERIAL SIGNS IN TERMS OF HIGH TERM MATERIALS CAN BE APPLIED DIRECTLY TO HYPERSONIC SOLUTIONS FOR NEXT GENERATION MISSILES ON THE OTHER SIDE WE HAVE GREAT AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TECHNOLOGY WITHIN RAYTHEON COMBINED WITH TECHNOLOGY THE COMMERCIAL SAID OF PRATT & WHITNEY HAS ALSO, COLLINS HAS ALLOWS TO US DO THINGS IN THE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL DOMAIN TO UPGRADE A WHOLE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM VERY ANTIQUATED FIANCEE ANYONE WHO FLIES UP NORTHEAST CORRIDOR FINDS OUT NUMBER OF DELAYS AIRPLANES ON TARMACS COMBINED CAN PROVIDE SOLUTIONS WITH TECHNOLOGIES WE HAVE OF COMPLIMENTARY CROSS ALL BOARDS DON’T COMPETE ONE VERY INTERESTING THING I WAS ASKED WHY NOW HERE IS OPPORTUNITY TO MIRAGE WITH ANOTHER PLAT FORGE LIKE RATHEON COMPLIMENTARY HARDLY ANY OVERLAP 1% OVER LAP BETWEEN TWO BUSINESSES THE SYNERGY WITHIN TECHNOLOGY TECHNOLOGY TWO COMPANIES HAVE, COMBINED, YOU KNOW ALLOWS US TO ADDRESS BOTH THE — THE DEFENSE BUSINESS, AND THEN ALSO THE COMMERCIAL SIDE OF THE BUSINESS.>>SAME QUESTIONIS FOR YOU, WHEN LOOKING AT WHAT HOW COMPOSUREING TO ALLOCATE CASH, BECAUSE I I GUESS YOU HAVE ALSO ACKNOWLEDGED THAT YOU FOREGONE SOME POTENTIAL INVESTMENTS, IN COMMERCIAL BUSINESS WHILE CASH FLOWS OF OTIS CARRIER HAVE BEEN NECESSARY, TO SUPPORT YOUR BUILDUP OF INVENTORY; IS THAT RIGHT? ?>>WELL, LOOK I DON’T THINK WE HAVE PASSED UP ANY INVESTMENT THAT WE THOUGHT MADE ACCEPTANCE FOR THE BUSINESS ON LONG-TERM BASIS KEEP THAT IN MIND WE ARE SPENDING 5 BILLION DOLLARS ON OUR OWN THIS YEAR ON R AND D, THAT IS A BIG NUT FOR A BUSINESS THAT IS ESSENTIALLY 75 BILLION DOLLARS IN SALES. MOST OF THAT OF COURSE ON AEROSPACE SIDE. WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO INVEST, AND THERE IS THE BUSINESS GROWS IT GIVES US MIRROR ABILITY TO INVEST IN IF YOU THINK ABOUT I WILL GIVE YOU PRATT & WHITNEY AS EXAMPLE 20 BILLION REVENUE OVER A BILLION DOLLARS IN R AND D, THAT IS 5% OF SALES, IF SALES GROW INVESTMENTS GOING TO GROW I THINK, YOU KNOW THAT TREND IS ONLY GOING TO CONTINUE AS WE AS WE GROW THESE BUSINESSES. MARIA: SO UNITED TECHNOLOGIES YOUR SAYING MERGE WILL MOVE HEADQUARTERS TO CONNECTICUT I’M SORRY FROM CONNECTICUT TO BOSTON OF COURSE MARKING ALTHOUGH COMPANY EXODUS FROM HIGH TAXING STATE DID THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH — A NUMBER OF REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN SAYING LOOK ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF CONNECTICUT HIGH TAXES DRIVING ANOTHER MAJOR COMPANY OUT TO BOSTON WITH THIS MERGER, GREG.>>MARIA THAT IS I WOULD JUST SAY PATENTLY FALSE THE RATIONALE FOR THIS AS A MERGER HE EQUALS WE MAKE COMPROMISES, WE MAKE COMPROMISES ON THE NAME ON THE BOARD COMPOSITION WE MAKE COMPROMISES ON HEADQUARTERS LOCATION, CONNECTICUT A BIG BASE GREAT PEOPLE GREAT TECHNOLOGY OTIS HEADQUARTERS THERE PRATT & WHITNEY HEADQUARTERS THERE FROM CONNECTICUT TO MASSACHUSETTS NOT GOING FROM HIGH COST TO LOW COST. THE FACT IS WE THINK THAT IS A HUGE TALENT BASE UP IN THE — IN THE BOSTON AREA IT WILL HELP US LONG TERM IN TERMS OF RECRUITING TALENT BUT THIS IS NOT ABOUT CONNECTICUT BEING A BAD PLACE TO INVEST OR BAD PLACE TO BE. AGAIN I THINK IT IS IT HAS GOT GREAT, GREAT PEOPLE HAS GREAT ATRIBUTE UNIVERSITIES FALL HOURS IN ORDER KEY TO LONG-TERM SUCCESS IN CONNECTICUT.>>I AM NOT CRITICIZING IT FOR THAT WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT WHAT GE HAS DONE ALL FOR LOWER TAXES GIVEN THE FACT WE’VE SEEN THE IMPACT ON BROAD ECONOMIC GROWTH LET’S TALK MANUFACTURING JOBS FOR A MOMENT, TOM, BECAUSE THIS TECHNOLOGY THIS COMBINATION OF TECHNOLOGY YOU’VE SAID WILL CREATE JOBS A LOT OF TIMES TWO COMPANIES MERGE THEY HAVE TO CUT JOBS YOU THINK YOU ARE ABLE TO ABOUT CREATE HIGH-PAYING JOBS?>>WE HAVE FORECAST COMBINED MERGE CAMPAIGN WILL PROVIDE OVER 70,000 JOBS, OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. AND THOSE JOBS ARE — WE CALL THEM OVER MINIMUM WAGE CAN BUY A HOME SEND KIDS TO SCHOOL THEY CAN SAVE UP FOR RETIREMENT, THE GREAT HEALTH BENEFITS THEY SEE ARE JOBS YOU WANT IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT I REALLY BELIEVE THAT THE I REALLY BELIEVE THAT MEE I REALLY BELIEVE THAT MERGE OF EQUALS WILL ALLOW TECHNOLOGY WE NEED TO ESSENTIALLY DRIVE THIS COMPANY TO NEXT LEVEL WILL ALLOW TO US HIRE MORE NOBLE JOBS FOLKS MAKE AMERICA GREAT. MARIA: DO YOU WANT TO ADD TO THAT GREG I WANT YOUR TAKE ON WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, TOGETHER, YOU MIGHT SEE, FROM THE PENTAGON, FROM OTHER GOVERNMENTS IN TERMS OF DEFENSE.>>LET ME GO BACK TO THE JOBS PIECE BECAUSE I THINK IT IS — IT IS IS VITALLY IMPORTANT AS PART OF THE STORY WE WILL BE CREATING JOBS WE ARE CREATING JOBS TODAY ALL INVESTMENT IN TECHNOLOGY, TRANSLATES INTO JOBS NOT JUST IN ENGINEERING JOBS BUT ALSO IN I WOULD CALL THE HIGH-PAYING JOBS ON OUR SHOP FLOOR. AND I WILL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE, WE HAVE HIRED ABOUT 3,000 PEOPLE IN CONNECTICUT IN THE LAST — FROM 16,000 TO 19,000 ADD ANOTHER THOUSAND NEXT YEAR, AND THAT IS JUST IT IS — IT IS A GREAT STORY, I THINK, TERM OF WHAT WE CAN DO TO HELP JOB GROWTH. THE PROBLEM WE’VE GOT RIGHT NOW, OF COURSE, IS THERE IS JUST NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE TO FILL UL THE JOBS WE HAVE I ALSO SAY YOU REMEMBER MARIA IT WASN’T THAT LONG AGO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND I WERE HAVING A DISCUSSION AROUND CARRIER INDIANAPOLIS FACILITY A COMMITMENT 10000 IN NOONS TODAY I THINK 1365, WE ARE ABOUT 25% ABOVE THAT THE FACT IS BUSINESSES GENERATE GROWTH JOBS GOING TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT. AS FAR AS TECHNOLOGY TOM HIT ON HEAD NOT JUST ONE SINGLE TECHNOLOGY PENTAGON IS LOOK ARING FOR THERE ARE 10 DIFFERENT DEFENSE PRIORITIES WE HAVE INTELLIGENT TO ADDRESS ALL 10 HAVINGS WHETHER HYPER SONICS TOM TALKED ABOUT DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS WHETHER IT IS SOMETHING TO DO WITH SUSTAINMENT INSURED XHOOKSZ WE CAN RUN GAMUT ALL THINGS DoD NEEDS SAVE DoD MONEY BRINGING THIS COMPANY TOGETHER.>>BEE WE HAVE NO PROBLEM SHARING TECHNOLOGY WITH DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, AND MAKING OUR COUNTRY STRONG.

WE ARE OPPOSING THIS GOING PUBLIC IF NECESSARY, THIS 120-BILLION-DOLLAR AEROSPACE MERGER IS ALL STOCK, WOULD YOU CONSIDER CHANGING THIS AND GOING SOME PARTLY CASH TO APPEASE THESE INVESTORS?>>HE LOOK MARIA THE BUTTE OF THIS DEAL IS A BEAUTY IS MERGE OF EQUALS ZBER PREMIUM FOR BOTH COMPANIES WE BOTH GET PREMIER PROPERTIES WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY A PREMIUM AND BRINGING THESE COMPANIES TOGETHER ONE OF THE THINGS WE DON’T TALK ABOUT VPG OVER LAST TWO YEARS UT.C. INVESTED A LOT IN ACQUISITIONS WHETHER GOODRICH COUPLE YEARS AGO OR ROCKWELL COLLINS BY BRINGING TWO COMPANIES TOGETHER WE GET HE ACCESS TO TOM’S PRISTINE BALANCE SHEET, AND AN RATING ON DEBT, AND WITH THAT FLEXIBILITY WE CAN RETURN 18 TO 20 BILLION DOLLARS TO OUR SHAREHOLDERS NEXT THREE YEARS DOUBLE WHAT THEY WOULD HAVE GOTTEN WITH US AS STAND ALONE SO THERE IS NO NEED TO — TO LEVER UP WORRY THIS IS A CASH MACHINE NOTIFICATION ISSUE WHERE HAVE YOU BE PRIORTIZING DIVIDEND GIVEN CASH MACHINE SHOULD WE SUSPECT TO YOU RAISE DIVIDEND MANY YEARS.>>WE HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB ON DIVIDEND OVER MANY, MANY YEARS CONTINUE TO IS HE THAT MOVING FORWARD IF MERGE OF EQUALS GIVES THE OPPORTUNITIES WITH GREAT BALANCE SHEET POWDER THAT IS DRY YEAR-OVER-YEAR SUBMITTING A BENEFIT TO SHAREHOLDERS DIVIDENDS OTHER CAPITAL EMPLOYMENT.>>LET ME SAY MARIA I KNOW BILL AND CAN ARE NOT PERHAPS HAPPY WITH THIS BECAUSE OF SHORT TERM DELUSION THE FACT IS YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE LONG VIEW HERE, AND I THINK AS TOM AND I HAVE TALKED OVER LAST SIX MONTHS, WE HAVE UNLIMITED POTENTIAL TO GROW THIS BUSINESS, THROUGH AT THE O INNOVATION AGENDA THROUGH ALL 60,000 ENGINEERS THAT WE HAVE, WE HAVE 8 BILLION OF R AND D, THIS IS GOING TO BE A POWERHOUSE OF A COMPANY WILL MEET ALL CUSTOMERS NEEDS AND PROVIDED BIG VAL TO CUSTOMERS OVER TIME.>>ANY ANTITRUST PUSHBACK ARE YOU EXPECTING.>>WE DON’T EXPECT ANY WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH THAT LOT OF DETAIL LOOKED AT BOTH COMPANIES LOOKING AT ANY CROSSOVER BETWEEN TWO COMPANIES WIND UP WITH ABOUT A LESS THAN 1% REVENUE IN TERMS OF OVERLAP IN FACT ONE OF THE THINGS I TALKED TO GREG ABOUT WHEN WE FIRST STARTEDOFF GREG I DON’T REMEMBER LAST TIME TWO COMPANIES COMPETED AGAINST EACH OTHER WE ARE ARE COMPLIMENTARY IN AREAS WE ARE NOT IN HERE IN WHEN YOU COMBINE TWO ONE PLUS ONE EQUALS THREE ACROSS THE BOARD I THINK THIS IS A WIN-WIN FOR ALL A WIN-WIN FOR SHAREHOLDERS A WIN-WIN FOR OUR EMPLOYEES, AND IT IS A WIN-WIN FOR THE COUNTRY ITSELF, AND DEFINITELY A WIN FOR OUR CONSUMERS WE ARE GOING TO GENERATOR ABOUT A BILLION DOLLARS IN IMPOVERISH SYNERGIES NEAR FOUR HALF GOES BACK TO THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BECAUSE WE HAVE TO ESSENTIALLY DISCLOSE ALL COSTS THEY WILL GET THAT REDUCTION RIGHT UP, 500 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR U.S. GOVERNMENT WILL BE GETTING OUT OF THIS, EVERYBODY WINS, ENDGAME BUILD A STRONGER COMPANY THAT HAS SOLID TECHNOLOGY BASE TECHNOLOGY BASE THIS COMPANY IS WILLING TO JUICE STORE SECURITY OF NATION WE KNOW SOME COMPANIES ARE NOT WILLING TO DO THAT.
