Joe le taxi  

durée : 00:06:35 - LA REVUE DE PRESSE - Joe le taxi il a bien changé… souvenez-vous des paroles… « Joe le taxi il va pas partout »… Eh bien ce matin c’est exactement l’inverse : Joe le taxi, il va absolument partout, dans la presse du jour. Mais vraiment partout. Presque pas un journal qui ne lui consacre, à lui et à ses camarades grévistes, une pleine page. « VTC, la guerre sans frein » - double page dans Libération. « Taxis contre VTC, VALLS n’arrive pas à arbitrer le match » dans le Parisien. « Manuel VALLS se donne trois mois pour tenter de rassurer les taxis », en une du cahier Entreprises des Échos… On en oublierait presque qu’hier, les enseignants manifestaient également… et ils étaient même 22% à faire grève selon le ministère, 50% selon les syndicats. C’est le Figaro qui le rappelle ce matin. « La mobilisation des enseignants se renforce » titre le journal. Et puis il y avait les fonctionnaires dans la rue aussi… entre 120 et 150 000 personnes qui défilaient pour protester contre le gel de leur point d’indice depuis 2010, comme le rappelle l’Humanité. « Un indice qui a décroché de 7% par rapport à l’indice de la consommation, tandis que, parallèlement, les cotisations retraite ont, elles, augmenté de 2% depuis 5 ans. Le calcul est donc simple et éloquent, écrit Jean-Emmanuel DUCOIN dans son édito : le pouvoir d’achat dans la fonction publique a subi une perte de 9% ». 22% de profs… entre 120 et 150 000 fonctionnaires… et environ 1500 à 2000 taxis dont une poignée à fait brûler des pneus sur le périphériques… c’est donc Joe le taxi qui gagne le match de l’attention médiatique… « Enseignants protestant contre une réforme des collèges qui ne passe vraiment pas ; contrôleurs aériens clouant les avions au sol ; fonctionnaires manifestant contre le gel de leur salaire ou bien taxis prêts à faire le coup de poing… C’était hier le retour de la France qui grogne », résume Philippe MARCACCI dans l’Est Républicain. « Certes, les différentes strates de revendication qui ont battu le pavé, à pied, en taxi ou en tracteur, n’ont pas contribué à livrer un message clair » estime Florence CHEDOTAL dans La Montagne… mais « à 16 mois de la présidentielle, c’est le moment où jamais de taper du pied ». Voilà François HOLLANDE rattrapé « par un principe de réalité plus fort que tout dans l’Hexagone : la rue », conclut Xavier BROUET dans le Républicain Lorrain. **Un retour des manifestations sur fond de court-circuit syndical** C’est tout le paradoxe, et certainement une partie du danger social qui guette le gouvernement dans cette dernière ligne droite avant l’élection présidentielle… Didier ROSE le souligne justement dans son édito dans l’Alsace… « La grogne anti-austérité monte en même temps que les revendications des taxis. Dans un cas comme dans l’autre, il n’y a plus entre le pouvoir et les mécontents le filtre des négociateurs syndicaux. Affaiblis par les revirements de l’État, leurs discours ne trouvent plus échos. Il en résulte des conflits plus spontanés et potentiellement plus violents. » Or faut-il y voir un simple hasard calendaire… c’est justement hier que Myriam EL KHOMRI la ministre du travail a annoncé le développement des « référendums » d’entreprises… une mesure, aujourd’hui essentiellement consultative, mais qui va permettre, dans le futur, en cas de blocage entre les salariés et la direction, ou de signatures par des syndicats minoritaires, de faire voter les employés pour trancher… Une mesure qui fait hurler une grande partie des syndicats : « Personne n’est dupe, déclare ainsi Jean-Claude MAILLY de FO dans les Échos : c’est un moyen de nous court-circuiter. » « Une manœuvre dégueulasse » pour Karl GHAZI, représentant CGT cité par la Croix et fermement opposé au travail du dimanche. « De tels référendums tournent toujours à la duperie, selon lui. On parle d’exercice démocratique mais dans 99% des cas c’est la direction qui l’emporte car elle a les moyens de manier la carotte et le bâton. » Et ce serait justement parce que l’exécutif est excédé par le blocage syndical sur le travail du dimanche, qu’il sortirait de sa manche cette mesure, selon les Echos… or, selon Etienne LEFEBVRE… « Il ne s’agit pas de court-circuiter les syndicats, encore moins d’imaginer qu’un dirigeant pourrait faire tourner son entreprise à coups de référendums. Mais il faut permettre aux organisations qui recherchent le compromis de s’appuyer sur les salariés pour contrecarrer les surenchères », écrit l’éditorialiste. Une enquête récente vient de montrer « que la confiance dans les syndicats ne cesse de diminuer, ces derniers étant jugés « trop politisés ». L’arme du recours au référendum pourra à l’avenir dissuader les syndicats jusqu’au-boutistes et favoriser les approches plus pragmatiques »… ou quand le référendum devient une arme de dissuasion massive. **Pour fini, une petite histoire macabre pour se remonter le moral.** Et oui, ce n’est pas que le début du festival d’Angoulême aujourd’hui, c’est aussi l

Biler er noget vi deler – også med robotterne  

I fremtiden er det slut med at købe biler. De skal ud af garagen og ind i en app, og chaufførtjansen, den lader vi teknologien om. SIRI-kommissionen har lavet en rapport, der kortlægger, hvad det betyder, at transport bliver digitaliseret

Det handler om nye taxi-apps, om selvkørende biler, delebiler, miljørigtige biler, mobilitet som service og udveksling af data omkring vores transportvaner.

Techtopia graver sig ned i rapporten og snakker med arbejdsgruppen om fordele og ulemper og konsekvenser af digitaliseret transport.

Medvirkende:

Ida Auken, medlem af Folketinget for Det Radikale Venstre og sammen med IDA initiativtager til SIRI-kommissionen

Henrik Schärfe, adm. Direktør for Autonomous Fonden og robotforsker

Trine Wollenberg, direktør, Dansk Taxiråd

Pod Three - Muslim taxi drivers who don't take guide dogs must be BANNED! 18th November  

Muslim private hire car drivers are still refusing to take blind passengers because they have guide dogs with them - this isn't cultural, it's barbarity! I don't care what religion you are, if you want to live in our beautiful country you abide by OUR laws, and that means taking guide dogs in your taxi! Andrew Gwynne the Labour MP has introduced a Private Members Bill in Parliament requiring taxi drivers in England to undergo disability training. Many of my listeners are cabbies, and I'm sure they'd agree, this isn't a taxi driver issue, this is a MUSLIM issue! Why should the rest of the drivers have to be reeducated when they're not the ones breaking the law? I was delighted to be joined by Steve Wright MBE, Chairman of the Licensed Private Hire Car Association to tell me why he thinks this commonsense ruling wasn't passed sooner.

Taxi Drivers: Iris Javed and Karin Holmström  

'You can never tell what type of person is getting into your car' says Iris Javed who has been driving a taxi in New York City for over twenty-two years, 'and once they're in your car you have to deal with it'. Iris, who drove an 18-wheel truck before scaling down to a taxi, has had her fair share of drunk and troublesome passengers - and even one who got into her car completely naked. Karin Holmström has been driving a taxi in Stockholm for twenty years. She says driving is only a tiny part of the job - 'you more or less have to be a mother, a priest and a psychologist'. She's doled out relationship advice and consoled the lonely and although she welcomes all kinds of passengers, Karin has one hard and fast rule about fast food - 'they will never eat hamburgers and hotdogs in my car. I'm not a restaurant!' (Picture: Iris Javed (Left) and Karin Holmström (Right - Credit: Stockholm Taxis)

Yes, no, hello! Absolute Beginner #1  

Hello and welcome to a new series here at Slow German. There will be new episodes as before, but I will include a few episodes for absolute beginners. They are meant for people who for example are travelling to Germany and who want to speak a few words in the native language...

First of all, you want to be able to say yes and no. That's the easy part. If you want to say yes, say „Ja“. „Ja“. If you want to say no, say „nein“. Nein.

When travelling in a foreign country, it is important to be nice to the people you meet. After all, everything you do will reflect on your own country. If you're an American and you're acting loud the Germans will say: Americans are loud! So be careful what you do!

Our next words are please, thank you and sorry or pardon. If you want to thank somebody for something, you simply say „Danke“. Danke. In reply to that, the other person will answer „bitte“. Bitte. If you want to attract the attention of somebody, for example a person working in a store, or if you bump into somebody, you say „Entschuldigung“. I know this is a hard word to say and everybody will understand if you say „sorry“, but the correct German word is Entschuldigung. Ent-schul-di-gung.

Alright, very good so far! Now let's get to four words that you can use for directions. There is left and right. Left is links, links, and right is rechts, rechts. It's easy to memorize, because the first letter of the words is the same. Links and rechts. In rechts you have a sound that is not common in many other languages, the „ch“-Sound. Your mouth forms a wide grin, like if you want to say „eeeee“. Now if you lift the middle part of your tongue a little bit, you will get this sound. „Ch“. Two more words for directions: Up and down. Up is „oben“, oben, and down is „unten“, unten.

Let's get to different greeting formulas. You can always say „Guten Tag“, no matter what time it is. It jus means „A good day to you“. If you want to specify, you can wish a good morning or good evening. Then it is „Guten Morgen!“ or „Guten Abend“. Guten Morgen. Guten Abend. The more colloquial form is „Hallo“. Hallo. If you are in Southern Germany, in Bavaria or even in our neighbor-country Austria, you will often hear „Grüß Gott“. This means „God is greeting you“, meaning „God bless you“. I am not a Christian and I say it anyway – it is very common in Southern Germany. Grüß Gott.

If you want to leave, there are also different possibilities. You can say „Auf Wiedersehen“, auf Wiedersehen, meaning „until we see us again“. The more colloquial form is „Tschüss“ or the Italian „ciao“. Tschüss. Ciao. Auf Wiedersehen!

Four more words to go, then we are through with this first episode of Slow German for Absolute Beginners. Let's say you enter a hotel, or you want to introduce yourself to somebody. Then you say „Ich heiße...“ and then your name. I would say „Ich heiße Annik“. In a hotel, you would follow up with something like „Ich habe eine Reservierung“, if you have a reservation for a room. We also copied the English form of that sentence, so you can also introduce yourself by saying „Mein Name ist...“. Mein Name ist Annik.

Ok, now three important places for every traveler. If you travel by train, you need the trainstation. Bahnhof. Bahnhof. If you fly to Germany, you will arrive at the airport, the Flughafen. Flughafen. And if you need a taxi, guess what? You can call a Taxi! I guess that word is the same in almost every language. We just pronounce it a little differently. Taxi. Taxi.

That's it for now, in the next easy episode I will tell you what to say if you're in a restaurant. If you have questions or ideas what to teach next, write me an e-mail at podcast@slowgerman.com . You can find the text and the vocabulary to this episode as well as many infos on slowgerman.com. Auf Wiedersehen! Or better: Auf Wiederhören!

454 - Hailing and Taking a Taxi  

Slow dialogue: 1:32
Explanations: 4:06
Fast dialogue: 16:49

My company sent me on my first business trip, and I was supposed to travel around the city in taxis. Having never ridden in a taxi before, I had problems from start to finish.

First, I had trouble hailing a cab. I didn’t realize that when the taxi’s light is off that the cabbie is off duty. No wonder they took no notice of me.

Then, a cab did pull over and I told him where I wanted to go. He said, though, that he wouldn’t take me because he wouldn’t be able to get a return fare!

I was looking around for a taxi stand when another cab pulled over, but my troubles didn’t stop there.

Cabbie: Where to?

Ignacio: I’d like to go the Hamilton Building downtown. There’s a flat rate, isn’t there?

Cabbie: No, we don’t have flat rates.

Ignacio: But a flat rate to downtown is required by law, isn’t it?

Cabbie: Do you want to go downtown or not? I’ve already started the meter.

Ignacio: Where are your posted rates?

Cabbie: We don’t have any. The first mile is $3.50 and each quarter mile is $2.00.

Ignacio: That doesn’t sound right to me. I think I’ll try another cab.

Cabbie: Suit yourself!

I remembered what my co-worker told me. She said to steer clear of private cabs, like this one. The cabbies don’t have licenses and some of them will really take you for a ride – and not the kind you want!

Rush Talk 60: Met een vliegende auto naar je werk  

Verschillende bedrijven ontwikkelden de afgelopen jaren vliegende auto's. Dit jaar komen de eerste modellen op de markt, maar de vraag is of we hier te maken hebben met de toekomst van vervoer of enkel met speeltjes voor de rijken. Vliegende auto's zijn echter niet de enige ontwikkeling in de lucht. Onder meer Uber en Airbus zijn bezig met de ontwikkeling van taxidrones voor in wereldsteden. En in Dubai en Singapore willen ze die technologie sowieso gaan omarmen. Elger van der Wel en Johan Voets hebben dus genoeg om over te praten in deze Rush Talk. Artikelen die je kunt lezen voor meer informatie: - De vliegende auto waarin Google-oprichter Larry Page investeerde is nog dit jaar te koop: http://bit.ly/2oDxwN3 - Eerste vliegende auto van Nederlandse autofabrikant PAL-V vanaf vandaag te koop: http://bit.ly/2lbd8EE - De vliegende auto komt eraan!

Pod Three - LIVE FROM LOS ANGELES - London cabbies tell Osborne where to stick his Evening Standard! 2nd May  

Taxi drivers in London are standing up to Uber, and to new Evening Standard editor George Osborne, who is alleged to have lobbied for the taxi firm. Today there was a protest outside the Standard's Kensington office by taxi drivers, and I spoke to the chair of the London Cab Drivers' Club Grant Davis to hear why he thinks they'll win the war with Uber.

Before that, I talked about gentrification, and the way it's transforming US cities just as it's transformed London. I was in San Francisco at the weekend, where an apartment in Haight-Ashbury, the old hippy district where Hendrix and Janis Joplin lived, will set you back $6,000 a month in rent. I spoke to Karl Kramer, campaign director of the San Francisco Living Wage Coalition, to find out why groups think a higher minimum wage will make the difference. Isn't he worried that higher wages are going to force smaller businesses to close?

Court rules Uber is a 'taxi service', drivers now required to pay GST  

A landmark Federal Court ruling today means that Uber-X, a ride-sharing smart phone application, will now be subject to the same GST requirements as taxi services. The taxi industry says it's relieved by the decision. Legal experts say the decision could have huge ramifications for other operators in the new 'sharing economy'.

Cabbies and Yemeni Grocery Owners Join the Resistance  

In order to protest President Trump's ban on travel from several majority Muslim countries, taxi workers went on strike last week for an hour at JFK airport, and Yemeni-owned bodegas closed for several hours Thursday in protest. Bhairavi Desai, executive director of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, and Linda Sarsour, director of Arab American Association of New York, discuss the taxi strike and the Yemeni grocery owners protest.

Our Miss Brooks - Taxi Fare (06-19-55)  


Taxi Fare (Aired June 19, 1955)
Our Miss Brooks, an American situation comedy, began as a radio hit in 1948 and migrated to television in 1952, becoming one of the earlier hits of the so-called Golden Age of Television, and making a star out of Eve Arden (1908-1990) as comely, wisecracking, but humane high school English teacher Connie Brooks. The show hooked around Connie's daily relationships with Madison High School students, colleagues, and pompous principal Osgood Conklin (Gale Gordon), not to mention favourite student Walter Denton (future television and Rambo co-star Richard Crenna, who fashioned a higher-pitched voice to play the role) and biology teacher Philip Boynton ( Jeff Chandler), the latter Connie's all-but-unrequited love interest, who saw science everywhere and little else anywhere. THIS EPISODE: June 19, 1955. "Taxi Fare" - CBS network. Miss Brooks has no money to pay off a cab driver, who becomes a constant companion. The system cue and the commercials and/or public service announcements have been deleted. Al Lewis (writer), Arthur Alsberg (writer), Bob Rockwell, Eve Arden, Gale Gordon, Gloria McMillan, Jane Morgan, Jeff Chandler, Jerry Hausner, Joseph Kearns, Larry Berns (producer, director), Lud Gluskin, Richard Crenna. 23:46. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
