Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Tech Week: Naprawdę bezprzewodowe ładowanie, walka o Gamestop i nowa Tesla za grosze

Difficulty: 0

Today we will be talking about wireless charging,

but the electricity will be in the air

There will be also a digestive track, actually its ending,

but just for a moment and without photos, so there is no need to get excited.

Anyway, we will be talking about what recently gets the US excited,

meaningly, why Wall Street that is a stock exchange market

turned from a casino into a circus and what impact Reddit and Elon Musk had on that.

We will talk about a New Tesla

with a steering wheel like in a plane.

Planes don't have steering wheels, anyway, you know what I mean.

And a few different topics but I can't reveal everything at the start

because I'd have to say "have a bearable week"

before I say:

Good evening :)


We have a wireless charging. Usually, we just lay a smartphone

on a charger and it charges "wirelessly".

In service cars of Formula E, wireless charging looked like this:

Is this everything that charges the car wirelessly?

So, there is four things really involved in the wireless charging

There is couple of base devices, which take the electricity from the wall

and convert that to a higher frequency

There is that panel in a vehicle, smaller than this

cause this is built to drive across, to kick, to stand on and on and on...

So the vehicle pad is in a size of an iPad, a little bit bigger than that

sits on the vehicle

And then it takes the magnetic field that is produced here,

converted back to an electrical field, we have a small amount of electronics

that interferes to the battery management system

and it's charging the car

It is a fragment of a film, which I recorded in 2016

and have never came out on this channel because it was prepared in a partnership

with a company, that didn't like, that I mashed up

voices of meowing cats as the sound of passing Formula E cars

/ Meow, meow, meow

They asked me to remove it

and I said no

I've been uncompromising back then already.

I treated it as an interference into my artwork.

It can't be that when you cooperate with someone and it's just a product placement

and someone tells you what you should do with your film

Although I know that some YouTube creators do that

Don't do that! it's bad for the whole industry.

You have to be tough. It's a placement, only this fragment

in which a brand is located can be judged.

From the rest - fuck off. Nevermind.

Maybe I will manage one day to cut off scenes from this film

and release it as "retro".

But we ought to talk about charging. BMW i8, that I suppose still operate

Formula E races, charge

/from empty to full in an hour

/Wirelessly. /There is a small gap between these panels

/and there is nothing in between. Next step of wireless charging

and the next concept looks like this: /There is someting lamp-like on a ceiling

but it's a charger that is sending the electricity to various devices

in a room/

I've seen it many times on expo, but I can't find my report.

Or maybe I thought that it isn't

interesting enough to record it, or I lost it and can't find it

in my stories.

That's why I'll steal a fragment of a material

from "Solid Stade Tech" channel.

/There are plows /on these toy trains.

/Anyway, as you can see, when /there will be an obstacle between them

/eg. a man will wave his hand, /then the connection is stopped.

It was the state of wireless charging technology development for years 2018-19

We're in 2021 and Xiaomi comes out with something like this:

/With a wireless charger that stands /in the room and charges your smartphone

/every time it appears /in its range.

/Slowly, beacuse it's 5W charging. /Precisely, in theory

beacuse 141 antenas are sending into the smartphone

/1mm wide wave /of a range of a few metres.

/There is a possibility of /charging a few devices at a time.

/A smartphone doesn't have to lay down, /it charges also when you're walking.

This is beautiful and as it usually happens in such cases,

it's a prototype.

/Xiaomi officially confirmed that they're /not planning to release any device that

/will be operating /this wireless technology.

And now a question: Why?

Is this a nod towards anti-5G protesteres?

If this electricity would appear right now, they would go crazy

They wouldn't know what to protest against

Masts with or without 5G nevermind

they can be set on fire, can't they?

What about this wireless electricity?

Set on fire houses of people who look like they had

this Xiaomi wireless charger?

I have one more theory,

connected with delays in vaccinations.

If the majority of us won't be vaccinated till the end of the year

then why do we need this charger?

it's obvious what it was created for.

To charge Bill Gates' chips,

which they're going to implant us

Talking about this conspiracy that will lead to chipping all of us.

The tests for a disease, which doesn't exist, because nobody have seen it

There are extras lying in hospitals, on cemeteries probably too


You know how these tests are performed, huh? Sticks are put into the throat and nose

I've been through it and I must admit that I've been not feeling well since then.

You never know what's on these sticks

And... It's something strange for sure.

I will tell you in a secret that In China they started to put people these sticks ...

Right there.

[vocielessly] In the a*s

/Supposedly such tests are more accurate, /since virus is living longer in

/the lower parts of our body, /than in the upper parts.

Tested people don't feel ashamed since a hole in the nose,

or a hole somewhere else is still a hole.

Moreover, there is only one hole in the butt

so the test is proceeding faster than once into the throat and twice into the nose.

The question is...

Whether this method is able to be transferable to our national Polish ground?

I think so

E.g. police can get warrants to

test the protesters. For their sake, of course.

And priests can test in this way the state of health of

altar boys in churches

Anyway, I want to point out that

these are only my personal, not supported by evidence assumptions.

Maybe it will be the same with these tests as with vaccines so

not only ass but also...

Change of topic.


What is stronger? American stock market or Reddit?

This is the question, that is hard to be answered in simple words.

But I will try.

We all more or less know how stock market works.

For those who don't have a clue - Very shortly.

It is a place where companies are listed and people can buy shares of these companies.

Let's say: for 100 thousand you buy shares of company X and If others want as well

to buy this company's shares, then their price is ascending with a time.

It can increase by 10% for instance. And then shares bought for 100 thousand

have a value of 110 thousand and you're 10 thousand ahead.

It can happen

that people are selling shares of a company, beacause they don't want it anymore

cause this company is not cool anymore, something happened

And the others don't want to buy it, then the value of a company goes down

and shares bought for 100 thousand are worth 90 thousand.

Well, you gain or lose, but generally you have to have 100 thousand - it's a lot.

That's why financial instruments were invented...

You don't have to have these 100 thousand It's not a muss.

To earn a lot, you have to invest a lot

That's why they they invented financial instruments that allow you to put in a little

and earn like you have had invested a lot.

And without an explanation on what forward contracts are...

I'll say that you can bet whether company stock will rise or drop.

So, you hipothetically put in a thousand zoty

but you operate like you have had put in 100 thousand

And you bet that stock will rise. And if it will rise in fact

then you earn these 10% of 100 thousand, that is 10 thousand.

After giving small amounts to various institutions, you get your earnings.

But if you will bet that stock will drop and it will in fact drop by 10%

In contrast to the first situation, you are earning as well!

So you can earn money on drops. Again, as if you were operating large sums of money.

so this is dope. A problem arises when

you bet that actions will drop and they rise instead.

Then you will have to subside the difference.

As if you were operaing large sums of money.


Small input large earnings, but a chance of losses as well.

Of course in normal cases there are systems that defend you from

such losses but they don't work when fluctuations are sudden, unexpectable.

And here GameStop company enters the game.

/it's their European page.

/The American one isn't working /for some reason.

/GameStop is a retail chain that sells /games, consoles and accessories for gamers.

/But they're doing it offline.

You can find these stores in American shopping malls.

But people are attending them less often at first - the pandemic

and for second - who buys today...

Okay, maybe someone buys games in boxes,

but a majority of people buys games online

Therefore, no one considers

GameStop retail store a company that will be really developing .

GameStop is of course a company that is listed on stock market.

/Predictions about the future of GameStop /were to be used by a hedgind fund -

/Melvin Capital which predicted that /GameStop will be going down

/and the fund will earn money on that.

It was supposed to be no financial terms.

What's a hedging fund?

/It's a kind of a investment fund , /that specialises in more

/risky investments, /i.a. betting rises or drops

Americans don't like hedging funds There's a widespread assumption that

their activity resulted in the big financial crisis of 2008.

They have a grudge against the government, then, later on and generally,

That they were saving he financial sector and ordinary people were

losing houses and all they had.

There is a belief among many people that if someone wants to

earn money on a drop of value of some company

then he earns money on someone's harm.

He is some kind of a vulture.

"Vultures are very important in nature" Economists may say,

which claim that a short sell is good for the market

But nowadays, as an economist considers everyone

who signed up on Twitter. More later on!

Reddit investors enter the game now

/"Wall Street Bets". /The group has 7 million users.

/It was 4 millions a few days ago, /so the situation changes dynamically.

/On this subreddit people are generally /discussing about stock market investments.

And they said at a time:

"Hey, the Melvin Capital fund is a bunch of dodgers.

who wants to forage on a poor GameStop. And GameStop is us".

/GameStop in minds of some members /represents millenials' generation,

/that was bailed on by the US government, /which considered it not worth of investments.

/That's why this generation will be /investing into itself.

/And that's why it will be /investing in GameStop.

It's not an action focused on earnings, although many people actually earned a lot.

It's more an attempt to show frustration

rub off on dodgers from Wall Street,

showing a middle finger towards the estabilishment.

The mass buying of GameStop stocks leads to...

/the ridiculous rise of stocks.

Melvin Capital "closes the position", meaningly withdraws from betting drops

and loses. We don't know how much but these losses are estimated

for billions of dollars

Others who were expecting the drop of GameStop stocks are losing as well..

/No one should be surprised that /In the action there is involved also

/Elon Musk, who on Tuesday releases a Twitt /with a link to "WSB" on Reddit.

/Two days later he explains that due to him, /"taking a short position", that is

/betting drops is a "scam", /which should not be legal.

Meanwhile, a stock market investment application

called "Robin Hood" and which is being used by a lot of investors,

limits investing in GameStop stocks

and other similar companies that people from Reddit has treated similarly.

/In response occurs a raid. /In Google Play store appears

/over 100 thousand of one-star reviews /of the application, decreasing the rating

/from 4,0 to 1,0.

/In response, Google

/deletes 100 thousand reviews /and a total score appears back

/to the state before the raid of /unsatisfied customers.

Currently, the number of negative reviews is rising again

I don't know how it would be when you will be watching this video.

And the aggrieved are going to sue

RobinHood makers.

Twitter economists are very happy because of this situation

As we all know, signing up on Twitter,

you get a MA degree in Economics as well

So the discussion is wide & proffesional. But the most interesting thing is that

there appeared a Polish thread in this situation

It's about CD Projekt, /which doesn't prosper well recently

/because Cyberpunk had /"a bit too much" bugs.

/So the funds have placed bets on /the drop in stocks of the Polish developer

And here again appears Elon Musk, who was presenting

a new Tesla Model, more in a moment, he places on the dashboard screen...

/The Witcher.

/And he adds that onboard computer /is strong enough to ,

/handle Cyberpunk easily.

The topic of CD Projekt bets is picked up by "Wall Street Bets" from Reddit.


Because the drop in stocks of CD Projekt...

was bet by Melvin Capital.

/The situation repeats, although /with much less intensivity

/as in the case of GameStop, but anyway, /investment funds are in reverse again.

In the meantime so called "traditional media" are trying to comment on

/Anyway, this action shows how /much decreased their clout.

/and how much majority of people /don't care about tv commentators

/speaking that GameStop stocks /are pumped up by

/by Internet madmen.

I have a maybe sad info, but wake up!

Internet is a real life!

Such division into the real countries is a year 1995

it's slowly becoming a thing of the past.

Was there a country or a group of countries

to be able to quiet down the former US president?

Come to him and say:

"Trump, shut the hell up"?

Well, no.

And what did Twitter, Facebook and YouTube?

Exactly this.

And that's why Mr Sakiewicz has founded Albicla.

I know how to pronunce it now.

But I don't quite understand, why I've seen him on Twitter recently.

Cause if we will assume that various social portals are different countries

Then if someone says: "I hate all these countries,

cause there is no freedom here! I'm gonna build up my own!"

Then he would be in his own country.

With these popes.

And not that: "I hate other countries but I came to visit.."

What a height of insolence!

Talking about driving...

/If you want to drive, then do it /with a proper power

/in this case over /thousand horsepower, an acceleration

/2s to 100, a range of

/over 600 kilometres, /and a maximum speed of

/over 320 km per hour.

/That's how looks specification of new Tesla Model S /which already can be ordered

/for a little over of /half a million zoty

/There is in fact a "Puberty" version /for 400 thousand, but come on!

/There is also a version for over 600 thousands,

/which hase more horsepower and a bigger range.

From the outside it is... Well...



/Steering wheel?

/I don't know.

/It has buttons

/And only buttons, /also as direction indicators.

/It is steep but what's the most interesting, /this car is supposed to have no gearbox.

Meaningly, this Tesla is going to decide on its own on the basis of the surrounding,

obstacles and position, which gear to shift

What is strange, beacuse it may occur that you want to

put in reverse, but your Tesla begs to differ.

You are stuck on the middle of the road and argue but it will be fixed probably

/Apart from that, there is the screen /on which you can play not only

/The Witcher but also Cyberpunk, what /means that power of the onboard computer

/is very similar /to the latest consoles.

/4 slots for wireless /smaprthones charging

/Second screen at the back

/22 speakers /with active noise reduction?

I'm sorry. I've completely haven't noticed that you lost your interest after

I said "half million zoty".

That's why there will be a few fast but also interesting news.

/Sony has released this new camera, which /I was talking about

/that it will be released, /and it will cost around 30-35 thousand zoty

/And actually I was right

/This device records in 8k, here you /have even a sample provided by Sony

/It has ridiculous photographic parametres

and it doesn't have a screen leaned to the side

I was crying because of that.

Not for a vlogger it is. It's a pitty though.

/Xperia Pro has appeared as well. /It is a bit smartphone and a bit a screen

/or a monitor for the camera, which /I was talking about a moment ago.

/It is supposed to cost 2,500$

Fortunately, it probably won't appear in Poland so there is nothing to be indigant for

the fact that Sony offers us a smartphone for over 10,000 zoty

cause it doesn't offer in fact

Not for a Pole it is. It's not really a pitty though.

Carl Pei the one who left OnePlusa has set up a new company but in fact

he has set up nothing.

/The company is called "Nothing" /and by now we only know that

/it willl deal with the electronics and /one of its shareholders is

/Casey Neistat.

/And the rest of shareholders /are even bigger fishes.

/Among them there are: Reddit's CEO, /co-founder of Twitch and the inventor of iPod.

There appeared a new project of rules

regarding electric scooters and vehicles of a personal transport

/On the page, which I'm linking below /the film, you can read about the details.

However, I'm not encouraging you to do so, because reading these adetails is like

diving in a ToiToi It's just a shitty project

/Actually, everything worst that could /occur in this project is there indeed

/So maybe you will like it if you

/sincerely hate scooters /and other vehicles.

Btw, dear Cyclists who benefit the most from this project,

because when this project will be passed

then, in accordance with law, we all with electric vehicles will squeeze

into the bicycle paths and we will be allowed to ride there

with a maximum speed of 20 km/h

so a bit slower, some kind of road blockers,

and despite of that there will be also people who on bicycle paths

WALK on roller skates

or these 5yo children, who sit across bicycle paths

on their plastic skateboards, also in accordance with the law

there will be allowed to be there So we are all going to have fun

Council of Ministers has already applied this project.

Congratulations, well done!

Now it will proceed to the Sejm.

Not to say that everything's worst is in Poland

I don't even want to start the discussion

that "in Germany you can also drive up to 20km/h on scooters" or in Sweden

And in the US up to 40km/h and what about it?

Am I supposed to go the US?

Unfortunately, it isn't impossible now

You'd better go to the Sweden or to Germany

if you like to be rolling slowly on scooters

Not to say that everything's worst is in Poland...

Daniel has sent me this news on Instagram, thanks.

Adobe Flash, that one that rocked the Internet one day

and thanks to whom we could play these shitty online games.

Adobe announced the retirement of Flash in 2017

because it was already pretty useless back then

and the final date

of the end of supporting Flash was 12nd of January, 2021

And guess to whom this info for 3 years, over 3 years, (3 and a half)

hasn't arrived?

To the Chinese.


/16-hour suspension of Chinese railway traffic

/It occured that the Chinese were /managing the timetable via

/Interface based on a Flash and noticed that someting's wrong

/only after Flash has been turned off and their interface stopped working

/After 16 hours they managed to get system back to work

On the basis of a pirate version of Flash that didn't have

information about the support expiration in the code.

And these are our future rulers.

occupiers, invaders.

But don't worry, it all will happen so peacefully that you won't even notice.

I have a few different worrying Chinese stories

but I'm not in the mood today

Today I'm in the mood: "I will ignore the threat as long as it is possible".

Maybe it's the strategy for a few upcoming days

Regardless whether you're gonna make use of that...

Have a bearable week!
