Coming up this week, we have an inspirational 11 year old, an April Fool's mistake, some cool mobile tech and my continued search for the perfect webcam. I've got potatoes, I've got chocolate and beer. I'll tell you about my new skill. And we've got a special guest with Dave Evans. Let's Thank The Week!

Announcer:

Thank The Week. Learning to be thankful for last week and excited for this week with your host, Craig Williamson.

Craig Williamson:

Welcome to Episode 21 of Thank The Week for the week of the fifth of April 2021. We just had the Easter weekend, which is a nice four day weekend break here in the UK. Hope you've all been relaxing with friends and family. Welcome along to the positivity podcasts with a roundup of new sports tech entertainment and my own daily life. Let's get into it.

News

Craig Williamson:

It was a really inspirational story this week about an 11 year old here in the UK, called Max Woosey and he made it 365 nights in a row camping in a tent in his back garden. Now this is an incredible story. So Max's neighbour gave him the tent shortly before dying of cancer, and that was in February of 2020. And he died in a nearby hospice. So max decided that he'd like to raise some money for that cancer hospice in North Devon in England. So he's been camping out for the last year. And he made it a full 365 nights in a row camping out last week, he has raised over 500,000 pounds for the hospice that's over half a million pounds, which is just an incredible achievement for such a young man. And in the finale, he had many children joining him all over the world and camping out in their own gardens to join in the fundraising. So I think he had over 1000 children signed up to do that last week as well. So big hats off to Max Woosey, who raised over half a million pounds for a cancer hospice last week, lots of little snippets of really positive COVID News, we've got the Pfizer biontech vaccine, which has had a few more scientific studies done, which are showing some really good results. So first positive is that it looks to provide really good protection against the South African variant and the Brazilian variant of COVID as well, which is really good news. And also, it's been trialled now in children aged between 12 and 15. Now, you may wonder why the vaccine hasn't rolled out to children anywhere in the world yet. And that's partly because children are less affected by COVID. And they're not in the priority groups. But it's also because there hasn't actually been evidence of of these vaccines being tested against children. But Pfizer have now done that testing, children aged 12 to 15 were tested, and it showed a 100% effectiveness at stopping people catching COVID and also no adverse reaction. So that's really positive as we look to get everyone immunised around the world and then start to think about moving down and vaccinating children as well. Also, a recent study in the UK found that nearly half of people in the UK have antibodies against COVID. Now that's either because they've already been infected, or primarily they think it's because of the vaccination programme. And that was done by the Office for National Statistics here in the UK. So really positive news there across the vaccines and in terms of people getting that protection around the world. Now, last week, I did preview April Fool's Day on our on you all to be on the lookout. I wonder if you saw anything. A bit unusual out there. Got a couple to report back one that I thought was quite amusing. So this was a team up between Heinz who are famous for making beans and soups, and Innocent, which is a UK company who makes smoothies so fruit smoothies. So this week, they announced they'd combined their two products to create a brand new product called Smoup. So it's a mixture of Heinz is cream of tomato soup, and innocence, strawberry and banana smoothie. So if you have a fancier Smoup, that just really sounds horrendous. So very pleased that that one was an April Fool's joke. The other one now this is this is a strange one. Volkswagen, the car company made an announcement on Monday of last week Now bear in mind, April Fool's Day April 1 was Thursday. Volkswagen made an announcement last week on Monday saying we're changing our name to Voltswagen V O LTS, the player on electricity and measure of voltage because they were advertising their new electric cars and they're getting very green and they're wanting to advertise their green credential. So they said yes, we're going to change our name from Volkswagen to Voltswagen on Monday. This is not April Fool's Day, they announced it on Monday. And then even on Tuesday, their spokesperson was confirming Yes, this is definitely happening. We're definitely changing our name. And then later on Tuesday, that same spokesperson said, You know what, it was just a joke. It was a bit of an early April Fool's joke, and we're not going to change your name. We'll still be Volkswagen. And I think they've had a lot of complaints and pushback about the name change now. Blaming something like that on on April Fool's is, I think a stroke of genius. So if you want to launch some news, and you're not sure how well it's going to go down, why don't you launch it a little bit before April Fool's because then it could be serious if it if it's accepted. Well, you can stick with it. But if you get lots of complaints, you can just say, April Fool's it was just a joke. But the fact that they did this on Monday, then they backed it up on Tuesday, and then they retracted it on Tuesday, two days before April Fool's Day. I don't know what's going on there. It seems to me like they might have had a change of mind after a bit of a backlash, but maybe we'll never know. So that was April Fool's Day last week,

Sport

Craig Williamson:

So much sport and a couple of sports I haven't mentioned before. So first of all, we'll get into the basketball. It is the climax of the US college, NCAA Men's Basketball on Monday night this week. At the time of recording, there are still the final four games to be played, which is the semi finals between Baylor and Houston, and Gonzaga and UCLA. But they will have taken place and then Monday night is the final. Now I'm really rooting for UCLA. They are the lowest ranking side still left. And I saw some highlights of their last game where there'll be a number one ranked Michigan and they were just outstanding. So really rooting for it UCLA, hoping they got through and can do something in the final. And also last Sunday was the women's NCAA basketball final. And at the time of recording that hadn't take place and neither had the semi finals. So the final would have been between two of Stanford, South Carolina, UConn and Arizona. If you like baseball, then you must be pretty excited because last Thursday was the opening day of the major league baseball season in the US. And I've just looking at the schedule if you like baseball, my word there's just tonnes of games every single day. It seems like there's at least 10 games or there abouts. So if you like your baseball, get stuck into that over the coming weeks. This week. We have some golf action. We have the 2021 Masters Tournament golf from August. If you're a longtime listener of the podcast, you'll remember we reported back in November about the 2020 Masters because that was delayed from April last year to November. Dustin Johnson was the winner and he's the favourite again this year, followed by Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas, who are also strong favourites. Another one just behind them is John Rahm. And he's got an interesting story because his wife is expecting their first child. And apparently he's told people that if that becomes he's leaving the tournament doesn't care whether he's leading or what's going on. He's going to be out of there. So yeah, watch out for that. So that's golf coming this Thursday to Sunday, the 2021 masters. In the UK, we have the Grand National on Saturday, the 10th of April. This is a historic horse racing event that takes place at the entry Racecourse in Liverpool. Now, historically, this is the day that everyone has a little bit on this. And this happens from grandparents to children to workplaces, they're a sweepstakes that go around. And historically, the Grand National is the big racing event of the year, and everyone gets involved and maybe puts 50 p bet on on who's going to win it. The Grand National did not happen last year due to the pandemic. So it's been two years since the Grand National. So if you like your horse racing, look out for the Grand National on Saturday. In American football news, there was an exciting announcement for NFL fans last week, that there's going to be an extra game for all the teams in the 2021 season. And this is the so called 17th game, I believe. And it's the first time in 44 years that they've changed the regular season schedule. So this is quite a big deal. And the way they're doing is this extra game is going to be played between teams that finished in the same place from their corresponding division. So what this means is you've gotten the number ones from both divisions matching up so that we'll see the Green Bay Packers against the Kansas City Chiefs. So quite an interesting idea there gives an extra game to the season and a lot more for the fans to get excited about for the NFL in the coming season. And proper football to finish off, England finished off their great start to the World Cup qualifiers last week, and they had a narrow victory over Poland but they've now got three wins out of three in their qualification. So that's really good news for the England men's national team. And this week, it's all about European club competitions. We have the first leg of the quarterfinals for all the Champions League games on Tuesday and Wednesday night. And then it's the Europa League quarterfinals on Thursday night. And the pick of all the games for me is Tuesday evening in the Champions League, Real Madrid against Liverpool. And then coming up in the weekend. We have a full round of premier league fixtures again, and the picker those for me is Tottenham against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon

Tech

Craig Williamson:

You won't be surprised I'm going to talk about a foldable phone. But I'm not particularly excited about the foldable aspect. There's something else that's got me excited. So last week Xiaomi announced their foldable phone. So it's a 6.5 inch screen which folds out to be about an eight inch square, I think. But what's got me excited is not the foldable side of it. But it's one of their cameras. And they're doing something extremely clever, very innovative. And I haven't seen this in any smartphone today yet. So what they're doing, yes, they've got lots of different cameras. But one of those cameras is an eight megapixel camera, which is not not too significant, but it has a liquid lens. Now, let me explain this. So your camera on your smartphone, or any camera for that matter, will have a lens which focuses the light onto the imaging chip. And that's what makes the picture. And that lens determines whether it's a zoom lens, so whether it magnifies things and make things look bigger, or whether it's something called a macro lens, which would allow you to focus on things very close up if you wanted to take a close up of a leaf or a petal on a flower, for example. But what Xiaomi have done is that they've made a lens that can be adapted to go between either a three times optical zoom, or a macro mode, which can focus down to about three centimetres, so you can get extremely close to things. And the way it does this is by having its lens not as a piece of plastic or a piece of glass, but as a liquid lens, which basically has a motor attached to it. And it can adjust the shape and the depth of that liquid within the lens in order to switch between those two focusing modes. So really clever way of packing even more photo gadgetry. But just through one single lens to actually have it achieved these two different things. So I think that's just a really impressive technology. They're from Xiaomi. So that is Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold phone. Now webcams You know, I'm on the lookout for a good webcam. And I became aware of a new one this week, I don't think I'm going to buy this, but I do want to mention it because I think it's really innovative. It's being crowdfunded on the Indiegogo website, and it's called Center Cam. It's retailing for about $100. And it's due to ship anytime now actually, and it does look promising. And with the crowdfunding, you do have a risk that they might not deliver. But it seems promising. They've got a few updates there. And it looks like they're due to deliver those later this month. So what is the centre cam? Well, normally you have a camera that's at the top of your laptop screen, for example, or in the case of a monitor, you might have an external camera that you just mount on top of the screen. The problem with that is that when you're looking at your screen, and having a video chat with someone, you're not looking at the camera, you're looking at the screen because you're trying to look at the other person, or maybe you're looking at yourself and thinking how handsome you are, or maybe how you wish you to shave in the morning. But whatever it is, you're not looking at the camera. So the person who's seen you gets this impression that you're not really looking at them because you're looking off to the side or below. So what the centre cam does is it basically has a thin wire with the camera dangling from it. So the idea is you drape it over your screen, whether it's your laptop screen or your monitor, and then the camera is right in the middle of your screen, or you can dangle it wherever you like. So you will put that little camera right in the middle of your video chat. So when you're looking at the person on your screen, you're also looking at the camera. So it's just so much more engaging, gives so much more presence for your web conversations. And I think a lot of performers who perhaps have live presentations and things like that online will find this really useful to give that extra level of engagement. So that's the centre cam, which is due out anytime now and I'll put a link to that in the show notes if you're interested at thank the week.com slash 21. Now I have said I've ordered or pre ordered my next webcam which is a Poly P5 Studio. I've been told it's due to be released on the 27th of April. So I do have a few weeks to wait for that. But I'm I'm getting a little itchy and my trigger finger is getting a little itchy on my mouse and I'm getting close to ordering other webcams to try and do a bit of a comparison. So I mentioned I'm using the Logitech C 920, which is a very good webcam Don't get me wrong, but he's 10 years old, and it just frustrates me that we're having to use 10 year old technology and webcams have not really moved on. So some alternatives I'm looking at Well, there is a Logitech BRIO, which is a 4k version. So much higher resolution version of the one I've got supposedly performs well in low light as well. Again, annoys me a little bit because Logitech have had this camera out for several years now they keep re releasing it or rebranding it but it's basically the same camera, and it just frustrates me that they're not innovating, but it does get pretty good review. So maybe I'll try that out. The other one I found out this week is called the Yealink UVC30. Now this is a bit different in that it's a bit more designed for a corporate environment, but it can be used for personal use as well. And it's got a lovely big looking lens on the front. I love a big lens. But that means that it's going to draw in a lot of light, hopefully have nice visuals. It's also 4k as well, but does allow a bit of a digital zoom so you can crop a bit closer which you can do with abria as well. So yeah, I'm really, really tempted by these as You can probably tell both of them, however, are quite expensive, kind of in the range of 150 to $200. similar amount in pounds, it is a lot of money. But if you buy from Amazon, you can always try these things and then send them back where they don't live up to expectations. So I might do that. But actually, I might rather wait until the P5 is out from Poly because then I could perhaps compare that with the others if I'm not happy with it. So we'll see. There is another one that's come onto my radar this week, which is the Cisco WebEx Desk Camera. Now Cisco, very famous for for their WebEx video conferencing software. Again, this is them realising that when they were producing lots of cameras for office meeting rooms, now a lot of people are working from home. So it looks like they've put a lot of effort into producing a really high quality camera that people can use at home and mount on their own monitors. Again, it's pretty expensive, and I don't think it's even released yet here in the UK. So there's three cameras I'm keeping an eye on, but I think I might try and hold off until my Poly P5 Studio arrives later on in April. And I will let you know how I get on in my search for the ultimate webcam

Entertainment

Craig Williamson:

For TV fans, the series 17 of Grey's Anatomy is coming to the UK this week. It's on Wednesday night. That's Wednesday, the seventh of April in the UK on Sky Witness. And that is the long running medical drama series. My wife is a big fan of Grey's Anatomy. So she will be very pleased to see the new season out here. I think it's already been out in the US since November on ABC. And I think you're currently at Episode 11 over there. So way ahead of us. But yeah, season 17 is coming to the UK this week, I think they're only releasing it on a weekly basis as well. So there'll be no mass release. So there's no way that people can catch up with where you are in the US. But yeah, very good news for Grey's Anatomy fans. And in music, Spotify, which is my music player of choice. They've launched some new mixes this week. And they always had these little mixes on that would listen to things that you play, and then give you a suggested mix. I think they call them daily mixes based on things that you like. But they've got a bit more serious this time and a bit more relevant. So I'm going to talk you through this as I do it on my phone. So if you go into the Spotify app, and then you click on the search menu, and this works on the desktop version, or the mobile version, I've worked on both. So if you click on search, and then there's an option that says made for you. So I'm going to tap on that now on my phone. Now you have genre remixes, which lists a whole host of genres of music that you've been listening to recently. So just to pick out the ones that are on mine, I'll skip over the ones that might be slightly uncool. So I've got a soul mix offered for me a jazz mix and a country mix. So that shows you some of the things I've been listening to recently. Then there's artist mixes. So this picks out some artists who've you who you've been listening to quite a bit of music, and I quite like these because what it does is it means that every other song is from a particular artist, but in between it inserts similar music so you can discover some new artists who sound similar, and it's kind of a nice way of discovering new music. So again, a few I've got there for me my artist mixes I've got Filmore mix, I've got Adaline mix, and I've got Winston Surfshirt mix, quite eclectic mixture there. And then finally, you've got decade mixes so that groups music by the year it was released. So not surprisingly recommended. For me. I've got an 80s, mixer 90s mix and a 2010s mix too. So have a look on Spotify. For those of you who use Spotify. I think those mixes should give you some something new and interesting to listen to this week.

Dave Evans:

Hi there. My name is Dave Evans, and I'm the host and producer of the Water We Doing podcast. Water We Doing podcast is your one stop shop for everything water related, we discuss global issues that might seem completely unrelated. But deep down, they all boil down to one thing. You guessed it, water. Now we talk about these global issues that impact all of our lives. And we're so excited to share these stories with our new podcast. So one thing that was so great for me this past week was I had so many interesting opportunities to talk with experts about different water issues. I've been so fortunate to talk with experts on such interesting issues. I had an amazing conversation about coal, and actually what's happening to our river systems here in Alberta, Canada. As the government looks to open coal mining in the foothills of the Rocky Mountain. This is the water we depend on for drinking for watering our crops, and it might have extra pollutants added into it because of this mining effort. And there's a lot of water that's used up in the mining process the need to clean the coal Can you imagine that clean the coal and use our drinking water for it. I had an amazing conversation this week with an expert from Oceana, we talked about fish fraud how when you go to the supermarket 10% Send the fish that's there is actually not even what it says on the package. Now, there's so many issues along the process from going boat to your table. And along the way, there's a lot of people that can make a lot of money by selling a fish for a higher price, pretending it's an even better product. And this funds, global crime syndicates, it's wild human slavery is a huge thing in the fishing industry. So it's really something to take seriously, if not only for those facts, but also for human health. We need to know what we're putting in our bodies. I'm so thankful for all these opportunities to speak with experts and learn so much from them, and share that with the listeners of this podcast. Now, one thing I'm really excited about next week, on Monday, we're releasing our newest episodes about Asian carp invading throughout the United States of America, and making their way towards the Great Lakes and what we're doing to prevent them how we're using fishing technology. We're looking at underwater electric fences and bubble screens. Yeah, you heard that right, underwater electric fences. I had the amazing opportunity to speak with fisheries biologist, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and even an author who took four years off to study what's going on throughout the United States. So for these stories, and more, tune into the Water We Doing podcasts on all the major podcasting apps. And you can find us on Instagram, and Facebook at Water We Doing Podcast. Thanks so much and have a great week.

Craig Williamson:

We've had a pretty action packed week here in the Williamson household, we had the lockdown restrictions having their first easing. So lots of things going on this week, we've gone from having zero to do to having almost far too much to do. Henry has had three football practices. And he had a football match at the weekend. I had two nice runs out with the Stonehenge striders as well. So really nice to get back out with a really good bunch of like minded individuals getting out in the fresh air and chatting as we run around the streets of the local area. So that was a lot of fun. And yeah, the kids have now got two weeks of Easter holidays, which is pretty exciting for them. We've just finishing our long weekend in the UK, we had a four day weekend, we get Good Friday, and Easter Monday offers public holidays. So that's been nice for us to enjoy as well. Dawn and I are going to work then this next week. But then we've got the second week of the kids holidays off as well. And there's some more lockdown easing, hopefully going to happen subject to confirmation. So things like non essential shops may be open. And we're thinking of possible daytrips to see family. So we're really excited to have that week off work and really got our fingers crossed that the weather turns out nice for it as well. Now we know the news, I've learned a new skill this week, and it's not a skill I expected to have to learn. Let me describe what happened. Well, on Monday evening, Harper had her Girlguiding session, which is still through zoom, although hopefully we'll be face to face before long. And one of the activities involved them blowing up a balloon. And then pouring melted chocolate over that balloon, I think in order to create some kind of Easter egg concoction. I'm not too sure. But when you think about it, having an inflated balloon and molten chocolate poured over it. That sounds like a recipe for disaster. And sure enough, it was. So what happened was when Harper had her first attempt at this, the balloon exploded. Chocolate went absolutely everywhere. Thankfully, she was in the carriage. But um, thankfully she was using her laptop, and chocolate literally went all over this laptop. So all over the keyboard all over the screen, big, big hairy mess, so that he gets the job of cleaning it up. And I must admit I've never clean chocolate off laptop before and then I'm sure not many people have. So I learned how to disassemble the keyboard. And yeah, I did wait for everything to dry out. I think that was a mistake. We tried to give it a wipe early on. And that was basically just smashing the chocolate everywhere. So waited till the next day. It was all nice and solid. Actually a credit card worked very well it's scraping the hardened chocolate off. There's a tip if you're ever in this situation, here's a credit card, scraped it off quite nicely. But then the problem was it was all on under the neath the keys, so I had to pop off every single key on the keyboard. Thankfully, I remember to take a picture of the keyboard before I did that so I knew where they all went. Although I did consider swapping a few keys around but I thought that might be a bit cruel, so I didn't do that. Anyway, got all the keys off, got them all nicely cleaned and then basically used used a little knife and toothpick to clean all these little dried bits of chocolate from under those keys. Give it all a good rub down and popped all the keys back on. That took two hours of really hard, precise work. And when I switched the thing on my word I was so so excited to see All the keys worked. And it was a big success because that was a bit of a worry. So yeah, I learned how to disassemble a laptop keyboard and put it back together and had some success. So that was my news skill for the week. And after that mess last week of chocolate all over the laptop, I found out that my wife has been chitting in the kitchen. Can you believe that? Yes, my wife has been chitting potatoes. No, I know that sounds a little painful, but it's really not, chitting is how you prepare potatoes for planting. So what happens is you get potatoes, which are actually known as seed potatoes. I didn't realise this, you can't just use any old potato, you need a seed potato, and you place it in a tray and a carton. Dawn got these off her friend, which was very generous of you leave them in a lightened cool place, but need to shield them from direct sunlight. And then these little eyes Come out. So it basically starts to grow like little sprouts on it. And that is what is called chitting that's C H I double t i n g. So the potatoes have chitted very nicely, and we're now looking forward to getting them planted. So I think Dawn's excited to get those planted outside in this coming week.

This week, I would like to talk about the things that I have been doing for Easter. And the first thing is a card that I made at school because every time we have something important going on at school like a big event in your class, we always make cards to give to your family or just anyone really. And then for Easter this year, we were sketching out daffodils, real life daffodils that we had in front of us in our sketchbooks, and then we sketched the same picture onto a piece of square paper, you couldn't press too hard, because then we went over it with watercolour. And then once we finished that, then we just stuck it on to the front of a pastel coloured card and wrote a message inside it. And then another thing that we are doing for Easter, we got some air dry clay. And then for my birthday, I also got given some polymer clay already coloured, but the air dry clay wasn't. And we made a little basket. And then I made a big one to put some of the eggs that we then sculpted to put into once they have dried, but we're not just gonna leave it the boring grey colour, we are going to paint them afterwards, but they haven't dried yet. So hopefully they dry before Sunday. And because I now have a two week half term Easter holiday, I am going to do a tennis club with my friend on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. So I'm really excited to do that.

Monday, the fifth of April is read a roadmap day. Do you remember those horrible days before GPS? I certainly do. I was remember is a relatively new driver, having trips across the country and studying maps really carefully before I left and I do not have the best sense of direction. And then I'd end up with these little post it notes, which told me what junction I needed off which road. And honestly, I don't know how we survived back then it's just pretty crazy to think about a life before GPS. And I'm sure the divorce rate must have gone down hugely since the advent of satnavs as well because a lot of arguments go on in the car, or used to go in in the car about directions. Anyway, I think read our roadmap, there is supposed to be the day that we look back at those times. And we actually try and make sure we still got those skills to be backed up for when the satellite navigation system goes down, as some people may expect may happen in the future. So you can either use the day to practice those skills or just use it to be very, very thankful that we live in an era with GPS navigation. So that's Monday, the fifth read a roadmap there. Tuesday. The sixth is New Beer's Eve. I really like the sound of this new beers Eve. And where it came about was in the US between 1920 and 1933. It was the prohibition era where all alcohol was forbidden. But then in 1933, President Roosevelt declared that alcohol was allowed once more so on new beers Eve, which was the sixth of April 1933. Everyone was lined up outside the pubs waiting for the stroke of midnight. And that leads me on to Wednesday, the seventh of April, which is be a day so that celebrates the very day after New Year's Eve when all the pubs could open in the US and people could enjoy drinking beer again. So we've got new beers Eve on Tuesday, and then beer there on Wednesday. I'm sure you can find a good way to celebrate those days. Then also Wednesday, the seventh when you've had your beer, it's international beaver day. So it's a day to celebrate and raise awareness of the Beaver. Now I do recommend googling vanilla flavouring and Beaver. And if you're a regular listener to the show, you will know xactly why. If not have a ittle Google and you will see hat I'm talking about. So hat's Wednesday, the seventh nternational beaver day. And then we finished with Thursday the eighth, which is Zoo lovers there. Yes, it's not Zoo day. It's Zoo lovers day. Is it a day for zoos? Is it a day for the lovers of Zoos? We have this every week. But anyway, I do like zoos. When we lived in the US. We had a yearly pass for San Antonio zoo in Texas. It was fabulous. took the kids there many many times had some really good times there. Actually, my favourite Zoo of All Time has to be Colorado Springs. We were doing a road trip through Colorado stopped off at the zoo there and it was just such a picturesque setting. The animals were just in such wonderful settings. And we got to feed giraffes which was just awesome having these huge giraffes come up to you and take lettuce leaves from your hand so yeah, really fond memories of that. But anyway, if you are a lover of zoos, then Thursday the eighth is for you. It is Zoo lovers day. Thank you again for joining me this week. I really do appreciate you listening.
