Thank The Week, with your host, Craig Williamson.

Craig Williamson:

Welcome to Thank The Week, the positive news roundup show. This is Episode 22 for the week of the 12th of April 2021. Got lots of great things coming up for you this week, we've got some more positive COVID News and other auction that you might be quite interested in. There's some great new sporting events going on this week to get excited about lots of new tech and including a new webcam that I'm going to give to you. Yes, I'm giving you a webcam that you can use right now. We've got a couple of films to talk about one that's coming out in the summer one that you can watch right now, I'll give you a little bit of insight into my own zoom fail, we have more random days for you. And we have guest Matthew Bennett from the second mix podcast too. So let's get to it.

News

Craig Williamson:

With the passing last week of Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh, I thought it was really worthwhile focusing on a really positive contribution he's made to the world and that is the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. So it started off in 1956. And if you were a child in the UK, at any point, you will have heard of the Duke of Edinburgh scheme. It's basically an Outward Bound scheme which gets children from the age of 14 out doing volunteering physical challenges, and doing some kind of Expedition which normally consists of a bit of hiking and some camping as well. And that scheme has just been about for so long. And it's influenced so many people around the country, over 3 million people have been given Duke of Edinburgh awards since the inception in 1956. So really huge contribution. And yeah, really sad the passing but let's look at the positives and look at everything great that he brought to the world. And as ever, Prince Philip was known for being rather outspoken. So there's been a few lists of some of his famous quotes going around. I'm not going to say some of them because they're not quite the best thing to be, say, in 2021. But there's a few I picked out that I think is a nice way to fondly remember him. So the first one, just to remind you that you know the Queen and Prince Phillip are just a couple you know that they're just real people. So this was actually heard from Prince Philip and he shouted it from the deck of of the Britannia, the Royal ship. And this was in Belize in 1994. So the Queen was busy chatting to her host on the quay side and Prince Philip was waiting to go and he was overheard shouting, "yak, yak, yak, come on, get a move on". I'm sure all married people can relate to that. And then another quote from Prince Phillip about marriage, "when a man opens a car door for his wife. It's either a new car, or a new wife", very deep on marriage. And finally, I'll give you the context first and then tell you the context. So Prince Philip was overheard saying, "I wish he turned the microphone off." And he muttered that at the Royal Variety Performance in 2001, as he was watching sir elton john perform on stage. So that's Prince Philip. In England this week, we've got another phase of the COVID lockdown easing starting this Monday, the 12th. So from Monday, we have pubs and restaurants can now open their doors and serve food and drink outside. All our non essential shops can open again, and they have not been open since back in early January. So that's going to be a huge change, for people to be able to get out and have a little browse in some shops, gyms are open, and also hairdressers are open. Now the last one doesn't particularly affect me. I tend to cut my hair at home fairly frequently. And there's not much to cut. But I have seen a lot of people around at the moment who are really in desperate need of a haircut. And there's people I've seen who I don't even recognise because they've come through sort of three or four months without a haircut. So I'm sure lots of people excited about hairdressers, not least our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, if you've seen pictures of him recently, he he keeps talking about needing a hairdresser. So anyway, really positive news things getting a bit more back to normal here in England. Also news this week that we're now giving out free weekly tests for everyone in England. So if anyone wants an at home lateral flow test, and these are the tests that we've been taking here, you've been able to get them for a while if you've got children in secondary school as we do. So we've been able to get these, and all you do is just go over to a test centre, and just ask for them. And it's a very quick process you drive through, they throw them in the back of your car, and then you drive off and you can normally get about 14 at a time, they'll give you two packs of seven. So really, really worthwhile doing that. So everyone can do the test. It's really simple and effective. And then at least you can know that you're safe going about your daily business. And there was another article I read actually from the Scientific American, which was talking about the state of the at home testing in the US. And I understand there's lots of companies as you'd imagine lots of money in this kind of business. So they're racing to get all these kits in US stores. And I think they vary in cost from sort of $10 to $100. So there are options for you in the US as well. But yeah, it really interesting that we've we've now got this mass testing capability here in the UK, available to everyone Another auction to talk about this week, and this is a physical thing, it's not one of these non fungible tokens of I'm going to briefly mention that in a moment. This was Super Mario Brothers, the original game from 1986. For the NES, the Nintendo Entertainment System that was the Nintendo games console at the time. So this thing was a big plastic cartridge that went in the end. Yes. And it was in its plastic shrink wrap. So it was brand new, never touched, never even seen the air from from beyond 1986 when it was built and sealed. And it was actually a guy who found this in a drawer. And it had been there for 35 years. Now, who does not tidy their drawer in 35 years, it clearly pays to tidy our drawers only once every 35 years because this guy did so found this game and thought this might be worth a little bit of money. It was a bit of a limited early run of the game. I think most of that version of the game came out the year after anyway, in Dallas, Texas last week, it went to auction, and it sold for $660,000 $660,000. For again, that sealed, and no one would ever play it because if you break that seal is going to lose all its value. But again, it's something physical, you can have it on display, you can have a nice little cabinet and say look at this. I paid $660,000 for this. Maybe you're not quite when I advertise that. But yeah, I think I think that's an interesting and interesting auction from the week. And we have talked about these non fungible token auctions where people have been selling a digital signature for something which makes no sense because the thing doesn't exist. But I did hear a really good use of NFT's these non fungible tokens this week, to people who work in the digital currency industry. So they're quite into this. They got married this week. And rather than exchanging physical wedding rings, they exchanged NFT tokens. How amazing is that? So there's actually a picture of them. So when you normally see the bride and groom at the altar, and they're exchanging rings, there's a picture of the bride and groom dressed up traditionally, as you would see a bride and groom, black suit, white dress. And at that point, rather than putting a ring on their finger, they're both looking down at their mobile phones, because at that point, they're both transferring the token to the other person. Now, I think this is a good use, because I'm from Yorkshire. We're quite renowned for being fairly frugal, fairly tight with our money. And for me, this is just a perfect way i can i can see this, someone that coming up with this idea. You know what, darling, rather than spending all this money on these wedding rings, they're a bit meaningless. Yeah, what we'll do is we'll transfer something that's invisible means nothing, and more importantly, cost nothing. And it just means so much more. It's so deep and it's there on the internet for everyone to see. And I think that would be so romantic. So I'm fully behind this. I think for my second marriage, which hopefully is not going to happen, but if I did have a second marriage, I think I definitely look into this as a Yorkshireman. So that's NFT's for wedding rings.

Craig Williamson:

Got some new big sporting events for you this week. So this Sunday, the 18th. It is the start of the IndyCar season. So that's the NTT IndyCar Series. The season opener is at the barber Motorsports in Birmingham, Alabama. And that's on Sunday. It's a 17 race series ending in September. And I think the peak of that must be I'm not that into IndyCar but I used to have the game Indy 500 on my PC when I was younger, I used to play that thing forever. Racing round and round and just having a great time. So the Indy 500 race is coming up May the 30th and I believe it's the 100 and fifth Indy 500. So yeah, if you're into your car racing, and you'd like a bit of IndyCar then the new season starts this Sunday. If you'd like something a little more sedate in your sporting world, then the world snooker championships begin and it's a two week tournament, and it starts on Saturday, the 17th on this Saturday, finishes on Monday, the Third of May So traditionally finishes on that Monday. It's a major bank holiday, a public holiday here in the UK, so you always finish with a big epic snooker final. Last year, Ronnie O'Sullivan won for the sixth time beating Kyren Wilson 18 eight, and the tournament takes place in Sheffield in England at the crucible theatre as it has done since 1977. So for snooker fans look forward to some gripping snoo correction coming up from Saturday. Also starting Saturday is proper football, but I can call it soccer because it is Major League Soccer. It is the new season of the US Major League Soccer starting on Saturday, the 17th of April, really exciting for soccer fans in the US. And this is a bumper season. I think it's starting a lot later than it usually would do but it goes through to November this year. And it starts off with a bumper weekend. So Saturday, Sunday and then the following Monday. There are 13 games now going on this year. Big news is that there is a new team in town and that is Austin FC Austin from Texas, quite close to where I lived in Texas. So I'm really excited about this. I think if I lived there now, that would certainly be on my agenda to get down to Austin and watch a few games. They have a new stadium being built for them, which is not quite ready yet. So they're actually playing their first seven games on the road, hoping to open that in early June. But yeah, Austin FC starting Saturday, the 17th against la FC. And yeah, I've just really liked the MLS, I think they've grown it to something really special. I was actually in Colorado in 1996, for the inaugural season of the MLS and I watched the first game ever of the Colorado Rapids. And it was just such a fun environment. They had the games initially at these huge American football stadiums, which were kind of half empty, because sadly, there isn't the support for soccer as there is for American football. But over the last 25 years, there's been huge changes. A lot of these clubs have now built their own stadiums, which allows the cash flow to come straight to the clubs as well, which is really positive. But then they're just really nice, intimate affairs with kind of 15, 25, 30,000 capacity. So it's just perfect for the game in the US. So yeah, if you'd like your soccer, Major League Soccer is coming back on Saturday. Now sticking with proper football, and we'll talk about English and European football now watched a great Champions League tight last week. This was Bayern Munich 2 Paris Saint Germain 3. And that was the first leg of their quarterfinal and just such a thrilling game to watch. Bayern Munich had so many chances but just could not score a Paris and German which is so clinical. So that's lined up really, really nicely for the second leg. And the second leg of that one is coming up this week on Tuesday night. And we've got the second leg of all the Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. And the second leg of the Europa League quarterfinals are coming up on Thursday evening. And the pick of those for me is Slavia Prague against Arsenal. And that was a one all draw arsenal. So a lot for Arsenal to do in that. So yeah, some really good football coming up. And then at the weekend, we have Premier League action. But we also have FA Cup Semi Finals. And they're all taking place at the big old Wembley Stadium in London, sadly to be empty, although we are hoping to get fans in for the final, which should be good. It is the semi finals, there's only two games, I really recommend watching those. I'm looking forward to catching those at the weekend. On Saturday, we have Chelsea vs Man City. And on Sunday, it is Leicester against Southampton

Tech

Craig Williamson:

Last week, we had some more details of a new laptop that's coming out soon. And this is something a bit different. And I've got a bit of a vested interest in this as you as you'll soon figure out. So it's a San Francisco based startup company called framework. And they announced I think it was back in February that they're creating a modular laptop. So the idea is that you buy a laptop and all the bits pop out and can be replaced. So potentially, this could be a future proof laptop, if you want a new screen, you just pop that off, pop a new one in, you want new memory, you want more harddrive space, you just pop them out and put new ones in. So laptops can be serviced to some degree, but generally they're quite difficult to to update. So they, they tatting themselves as being quite a green company. They're using recycled materials for the body work for the aluminium and the plastic. And yeah, so I think this is just a really interesting concept. The thing that got me interested was it's got swappable keyboards. And if you were listening last week, you'll know about my troubles clearing chocolate out of the keyboard. So the idea that these keyboards are there just to pop out and you can pop a new one on. I'm quite impressed with that. They also talk about the webcam, it looks like they've got a pretty decent webcam in there. It's 1080 p high definition 60 frames per second. So that's looking quite good as well. Anyway, keep an eye out for that. That's the framework laptop, and this is coming out in the summer, I promised you a new webcam. Just I should have put an Asterix there. I'm not actually giving you anything. But I'm giving you some knowledge that potentially gives you a new webcam that you can use right now. Maybe when you finish the podcast. Now this is something I knew existed. And I knew about it, but I never tried it. And I thought you know what, I'm talking about webcams a lot. Why don't I give this a go. So what you can do is you can use your mobile phone, as a webcam, or your tablet, your iPad, or Android tablet can be used as a webcam. And I knew this was the case. And I knew that the quality was supposed to be very good because the cameras on our phones are so much better than those tiny little webcams that you get in your laptop, or even the little standalone webcams. So I knew the call quality was supposed to be good, but I thought it might be a bit of a faff, a bit inconvenient, but I thought I'll give it a go. And you know what, it was actually quite straightforward. So I'll put a link in the show notes to an article from Wired Magazine, which kind of told me all I needed to know. So that said thank the week.com slash 22. And you can find a link there. But what you basically do is you instal an app on your phone. So the particular app I've used is called droid cam. And you can use this on an iPhone or on an Android phone. It's available for both and then if you've got a window PC, you instal the droid cam software on there. Now, if you've got Mac droid cam doesn't have a Mac piece of software. So you need to use a different one, Wired recommend Camo as the app that you'd have on your iPhone and on your Mac, I haven't used that. So I can't attest to that. But I use droid cam. And my word, it was so simple, I imagined there'd be cables involved, but no, as long as it's on the same Wi Fi network as your computer. Once you've got these two apps installed, you just type in an address to configure it. And it connects and the quality is amazing. What struck me however, was that I'm now having doubts that I really want a high quality webcam. Because I did not like the look of every single pour of this being shown in such great detail on the screen, I was a little alarmed, I must hasten to add. Now I think some of that is because a lot of the processing that goes on in your phone's camera tends to happen after you you take the picture. And obviously when it's streaming live to your computer that processing is not taking place. So I think there's possibly a bit of colour calibration that needs to take place which you can do within the app and within the the app on your laptop or computer. But I didn't really have time to play with that too much. But yeah, it really impressive, really high resolution. And I guess the the one caveat to that is it does drain your phone battery quite heavily as you might expect. So you might need to have it plugged in to charge but you don't need it plugged in to do the connection. That's all wireless. And it works really seamlessly. And it streams really instantly i didn't i didn't see any lag whatsoever. So it was very impressive from that point of view. The other downside, obviously is you need some way to mount it. So ideally, you want it at eye level. So you're looking at it when you're looking at your screen. So you need to have some way of kind of mounting it above your monitor or your laptop screen. So a few things to think about. But certainly if you're in the market for a webcam, I'd recommend giving it a go and just just see how it is. I think for me, I'd like the convenience of a permanently plugged in webcam. So I'm still eager to get my hands on the Poly P5 Studio, which I've got on order and should be here. And I think about three weeks time. And obviously I'll let you know how I get on with that. So that's how to use your phone as a webcam. And I'll put a link to the Wired article, thank the week.com slash 22

Entertainment

Craig Williamson:

Two films to talk about this week. I've watched the trailers for both, and one of the films is out right now. And we can all go and watch it. And I'm planning to do that this week. First of all, Space Jam two is coming out this summer. Now you may remember the first best jam film back in 1996. It featured Michael Jordan, the legendary basketball player. And I have to admit, I haven't watched it. But the clips I've seen is essentially Michael Jordan being himself a basketball player. And then he gets sucked into a cartoon world. And it's got all the Looney Tunes characters like Daffy Duck and so on. And chaos ensues. Well, they've come up with Space Jam to now and he stars the big basketball legend of the day, which is LeBron James, the LA Lakers legend. So really is probably the equivalent of Michael Jordan at this time. So yeah, again, very similar storyline looking at the trailer, he gets sucked into this cartoon world. And it's got the Looney Tunes characters. But it's also got the Flintstones and Yogi Bear. You know what was not to love about that? It did seem quite bizarre to me. But if you're into basketball, and if you're into Kids cartoons, then Space Jam two is something to get excited about is called Space Jam a new legacy. And it's coming out in the US in cinemas and on HBO max on the 16th of July. And in the UK. It's coming out a week later on the 23rd of July. So that's a few months away. But there is a film that we can all watch right now on Netflix. It came out last Friday, and it is called Thunder Force. And I'll read the little court. In a world where supervillains are commonplace. To a strange to childhood best friends reunite after one device is a treatment that gives them powers to protect their city. Now this stars Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer. And it looks quite good fun. In the trailer I've seen I have read a few reviews. And the star ratings are not that high. But I think if you go in expecting something that's quite easy on the eye, maybe a bit predictable, but some good funny slapstick moments. I don't think we'll be disappointed with that in our mind. So that's Thunder Force on Netflix out now in the UK and in the US.

Matthew Bennett:

My name is Matthew Bennett. I own a small company called Second Mix marketing and my podcast is called the Second Mix, where I talk about personal development fundamentals and everything it takes to reflect, revise and remix your business and your life. This past week, I got to celebrate my wife's birthday. In the past several months I've been getting caught up in myself and how busy I am whether that was true or perceived busyness and I had a flash of insight because I was grumbling in my head. All of the things that I knew I was going to have to do to prepare for my wife's birthday. She's gonna want me to pick her up at dinner and bring it home for us. After the kids go to bed, I'm going to have to make a brownie cake for her, I've got to get presents for the kids, we've got to wrap all this stuff. I caught myself in time and realised I didn't have to be this way, I could also be excited about all of this, and actually make the day special for her. And in fact, realising that if I didn't change my attitude, she's gonna pick up on it and feel like she's getting in my way, putting me out asking too much of me however you want to say it. And I never wanted to feel like that. I never wanted to feel like she's a bother, or to feel like she's someone who's in my way, I want her to feel special. And so here for her birthday, was another chance to allow her to feel special and worth the effort. I was proud that I was able to catch that attitude and flip it back around this coming week. I'm excited. The weather is getting warmer in Erie, Pennsylvania. And I just wrote in my planner yesterday, to put the kayak rack bag on top of the van. I'm looking forward to getting back out on the water every morning, I'm looking forward to ignoring my gym membership for four months in favour of the kayak, hiking, gardening, campfires yard work, I love being outside. Even when there's a tonne of yard work to do, I hope everyone listening has a place that they love. As much as I love the outdoors, you can find out all you need to know about me at secondmix.net. And I want to express my gratitude to Thank The Week for having me on. Thanks, everybody.

Life

Craig Williamson:

We've all had video meetings for over 12 months now. So you would think we would know what we're doing. And I had probably my biggest zoom for health of all last week, which was a bit of an embarrassing one. So it was a work situation where there was a board of something like 10 people, a lot of little faces on this zoom call. And I was called in for my little section with a colleague. And we were in there. So we got admitted to the room, we had our little session where we did a short briefing, and we were asked lots of questions. And then it was time to leave. And they were gonna then invite the next people. So they said oh, yeah, we can't kick you out. So if you don't mind, just just leaving. And you know, thank you very much. So my colleague left without any issue. And then I realised that my mouse had disconnected from my screen. So panic cause through my veins, as these 10 little faces are looking at me waiting for me to leave so they could probably talk about me and what I just been saying. And I couldn't leave my mouse was disconnected. And being being British, I had too much pride to actually just explain simply what the situation was. So instead, while trying to keep my face forward with a fixed smile, almost like like a mind, not moving, my hands frantically reached for my laptop, and I had to open my laptop because it was docked on my big screen, opened my laptop, and then frantically move my finger on the trackpad to try and get to the end call button. And it probably only lasted maybe 30 seconds, but it felt like several minutes of pain. I finally got out of it. And an all was good. And perhaps they thought I looked strange. And that was perhaps the first thing they said when I signed off. So the first thing I did was I looked up keyboard shortcuts. So this is a little tip for you. If you're ever in this situation, if you press ALT and then Q and then enter that will quit. So if you press ultan q it will say you want to end or do you want to leave the meeting, if you press enter it will do that. So if you're ever stuck with a mouse Ctrl, Alt q then enter. And also it caused me to find a couple of other shortcuts. So just for completeness, if you want to mute or unmute to switch between those it's altered and air. And if you want to switch your webcam on or off, then it's alt n v. Certainly all those would have been very useful to me last week. I'm very humbled by the experience and I promise to do better next time. So this week, we are looking forward to a week of holiday we've got all the family are off this week, it's the kids second week of their Easter holidays. And me and my wife have got the week off work as well. So we're just looking forward to a bit of relaxation, a bit of time to hopefully enjoy some of the lockdown evening maybe get out to some non essential shops and have a little wander around our local area. also excited to get to see our parents as well. We're planning a little garden visit to see parents which we're really excited about. And if the weather holds, we would like to get down to the seaside as well. We have missed the cost. So hopefully getting down there for a little walk on the seafront should be really fun. So yeah, we just really really looking forward to the time off. We haven't had much time off since Christmas and it can be easy to forget how rejuvenating a week off is until you've actually had it so really excited just to relax and get some quality time with the family.

Harper Williamson:

This week I would like to talk about something I have done in the first week of the Easter holidays and that is a morning tennis camp and took place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On the first day, we practised forehands and backhands, and I always thought that not many other people swapped their hands for backends. But my friend that I did it with also does it. So that was quite a surprise for me. So we did loads of little practices for that in partners, and then we had two breaks with snacks in between them. And then we also played a game called coffin which someone feeds in the balls, and everyone else is in line on the other side of the net, at the baseline. And for that first day, we did you have to do a forehand, and then a backhand. If you missed or it went out, then you lose a life. And again on that first day, we did, we had three lives each. But that did change because eventually when they had one in day three, on day two, which was Wednesday, we did volleys so hitting the ball without a bounce on your side of the net. And I really liked doing volleys because I get to whack it. So on that day, I got player of the day, and I got one of those bags of giant dairy milk buttons. So very pleased with that. We also did some tournaments at the end of each day on all of the days. And on the second day, my friend and I, we were always partners for it. Because we were one of the only girls there were only three girls. So we went in a trio with the other girl. And we called ourselves the lucky losers because the day before some bird poo fell on my head, so and we did actually lose so but it was quite funny because we always start off pretty well. And then we just go down and down. And then we just lose every single game afterwards. But then last day, we then we called ourselves the Thursday failures. So because we guessed that we were going to lose, although actually we lost our first game Five, four. And then we won three games after that. But then on our last game, which decided everything because if we won it, then we would have won the whole tournament. Then if we lost, we came fourth out of five teams. And so it did decide everything. And we lost that game. I really enjoyed doing this. Because the day before, which was on the Monday, I did nothing the whole day. And I only did 4000 steps. And then on Tuesday, I almost had 20,000 steps. I would definitely do it again. And I think there are some in the summer. So that would be good.

Random.

Craig Williamson:

We have a week of ambiguous holidays this week. And you'll see what I mean there's two, particularly ambiguous Monday, the 12th is Big Wind today. Now this is unrelated to baked beans day, this is actually commemorating the recording of the highest natural wind gust ever measured on earth. And this was measured back in 1934. Now the scientist in me wants to question the accuracy of the equipment back in 1934. But you know, we'll brush over that. But April the 12th 1934. The Mount Washington observatory recorded winds at 231 miles per hour. Mount Washington is the highest peak in the north eastern USA. So yeah, really incredible wind speed. I didn't know that kind of speed was possible on Earth. Anyway, Monday the 12th. I don't know how you celebrate big wind day. Yeah, I'm really not sure maybe just blow on each other. Go outside. Let the breeze take your newly Crawford here in a new direction. We'll see Monday the 12th. Big wind day. Thursday the 15th. Guess what day it is. On Thursday, the 15th go, on? Well, there are lots of days. But the first one I'm going to talk about is Take A Wild Guess Day. Did you guess what day it was on Thursday. So take a wild guess day. It's all about thinking about the hunches that you have. And just trying to practice how good you are at guessing as you go about your daily life. Yeah, I mean, this is something I'm sure we all do on a regular basis. So for example, you could pour your bowl of cereal and maybe guess the weight of it. And then get your scales out and put it on and see how close you are what what excitement you can have with your breakfast. Perhaps you could guess the maximum wind speed for the day. And then check a weather website and see what it says the wind speed is. You know, I think there's so many places you can take this just practice guessing and have some fun on Thursday the 15th with Take a Wild Guess Day. Also Thursday the 15th. Another ambiguous one, perhaps it is National rubber day. In the US, this is called national eraser day. You don't want to get the two mixed up. But did you know before the invention of the rubber eraser in Japan, they used to use crustless bread to remove mistakes. That's really got me wanting to try that. I might get a slice of bread, cuts off the crusts, maybe roll it into a little ball and see how good that is at erasing some pencil marks. So Thursday, the 15th is National rubber day or national eraser day, and then also Thursday 15th. We're going to finish off with husband appreciation day. Yes. So my wife Dawn has stopped listening to this podcast and I'm fine with that. I understand it. I think she she did actually say which I thought was a bit harsh. She gets enough of my voice day to day and she doesn't need to be hearing it when I'm not around. So you know, I've completely understand that. But what this means is she's not going to know about her husband Appreciation Day unless someone tells her so if you do not my wife do reach out to her reminder that Thursday the 15th is the day that she needs to appreciate that her amazing husband deserves a treat for his tireless efforts. And husbands do work hard, and they do deserve to be appreciated. So that's Thursday, the 15th husband Appreciation Day. Thank you so much for listening again this week. You can find links to all the stories at thank the week slash 22. And please do get in touch with me if you go to thank the week.com you can contact me through there.
