Meet Virginia Attorney General Candidate Jason Miyares
"But there's a fantastic candidate who's also running for attorney general In the state of Virginia And wouldn't it be wonderful if all three statewide constitutional positions flipped And his name is Jason meares Jason how are you sir It is great to be with you Mark So much for thank you so much for having me on Well it's a pleasure Now tell us about yourself Tell the whole country about yourself because you have a very very interesting background as well Go right ahead Well listen I like to say my former prosecutor in Virginia Beach represent that area in the House of delegates now My story actually doesn't begin in Virginia Beach It begins in a vanna Cuba when a scared 19 year old girl got an airplane and you lost in homeless and not on board next meals get to come from And that was my mother Miriam miara is and so you know I tell my daughters all the time gratitude is one of the most underrated of all human traits I was raised to have such gratitude that I can live in this amazing country So my mother fled communist Cuba in the fall of 1965 leaving the only non democracy in the western hemisphere And almost 50 years of the day that she'd last in the fall of 2015 she was able to go into a voting booth and get a ballot and vote for me to represent her in the oldest democracy in the western hemisphere the Virginia accidental gets And so that's what I call the American miracle And we'll be ever forget that it is a miracle It's a precious thing And one of the things that makes it so precious is the fact that we're a country with a first written constitution and recorded history that empowers the individual rather than empowering government And that is what has created more flourishing of human ingenuity and prosperity than any country in the history of the world And we have to remember that as a people or we're quickly going to go to the way of some of these other
Global Economy Projected to Show Fastest Growth in 50 Years
"The world is on course to register the fastest growth in fifty years after the pandemic induced downturn. But only the wealthiest countries stand to benefit. Human economists said on wednesday a new report from the un trade and development body unctad maintained at this partial rebound happen because wealthy countries have spent their way out of trouble but this has not been possible for poorer nations whose economies have been hit much harder by cave nineteen down the two thousand and eight to nine financial crisis said unctad secretary general rebecca greenspan. We are seeing now extremely accommodative. Monetary policies in huge fiscal packages utilized by countries with currencies reserve status in the meantime developing regions who spending packages. Where but a fraction are already having to cut back. Some of their spending and increase their interest rate in reaction to the fears of increase inflation. In chris in debt ratios and the prospect of a new adverse cycle in financial markets. The young touchy highlighted that global economic growth was likely to be highly uneven and that next year it is likely to slow significantly with incomes trailing three point seven percent below pre pandemic levels
Are We Living in the Matrix?
"Really? I got to thinking yesterday. It's almost like every up is down and down is up. And I got thinking more about the whole idea. The Matrix those You never saw the movie. They're coming out with the fourth one trailer went viral yesterday. The only reason I'm thinking about all this, but the whole premise of the movie is that you know, technology develops these powerful computers. They take over the world and they don't get rid of the human beings. But they use the human beings as batteries and human beings. Don't do anything to fight back because they're all plugged into this computer simulation. And they're just living in, you know, life that's not real, and therefore they don't fight back because they're plugged into the Matrix. You know, But there's one part of the movie. The movie the original movie. The Matrix is some very deep parts. You know, one of them with the oracle. They have this part where, uh, you know, the whole idea of free will basically comes up. Would you have done this if I didn't say something before, and one of the other parts, this kid this young kid, this is a spoon that bends and the kid asked, you know, as a spoon bending is your kind of mind bending around the spoon. And it really makes you wonder now, like our our minds bending around the spoon, like is the spoon really not bent. And are we just so easily impressionable left this among us, at least the conservatives in my audience get it. That we don't see that our country is disappearing before our very eyes right now. I don't mean disappearing like the landmasses disappearing. I mean, every single tenant we've relied on that's gotten us to this point. Prosperity freedom, the richest country in the history of humankind with the most powerful military, the most advanced technology the greatest time to be alive in the United States. I'm anywhere in humankind. In humankind's history is right now, even with Joe Biden Even 50 years ago, your life was different. You had no access to the Internet here. Everything was different.

"Again bicameral bipartisan support. You saw this in the weather act. It was passed unanimously doth. I mean this was really incredible. The people who help that happen actually are the partners hours talking about that linked in with two whether any nation emergency manages water resource manages the other ones canvassing at the state and local levels not just the federal level. It is every every emergency manager. Every organization is arguing for us right. Well kids every house district in the united states. So the point is we that connection. Connectivity allowed that happened. 'cause i can't go on a hill argue for anything but the president's budget i can't lobby the hill. So you gotta recognize that to make it work and same thing with sequestration. It turned out the the may two thousand thirteen Tornado outbreak out there. Near more oklahoma and elry i l l now i think we already know case know The hill senate at that point whether service no we're not going to be sequestered but we didn't get out of the budget constraints until two thousand fourteen But the fact that we never had to do sequestration based on our performances during the tornado outbreaks and the seriousness of the impact. It would have had on our weather offices. We made that clear and it wasn't just for the during the hurricanes there was the fire season. Had actor you plan for preparing for that so we never did get sequestered but we had some rough budget periods there just from the how long we had a wait before it finally opened up yet and the weather service is one of the greatest values in the federal government system if you look at their budget to value ratio a couple of final questions. When i saw the article that you said you prepared to be fired after sharp Itchy stood by your your point. Is that i had to do what i did. From a leadership perspective Of and careful about exactly what he said but not with respect to having the backs of the birmingham forecast office. And i knew that the service your i got a courtesy call when before ten minutes before they the that message was released And i knew at that point what. I had to do that following monday. Because i was giving a keynote address at the. Nfc way Was you know back to a very office no matter what the consequence and you know Do an executive branch so that were at. I'm not it's not a political position. But i still work in the executive branch. I had the back at forecast office. They did the right thing. Everybody during during did the right thing In terms decisions that were made but especially The the birmingham office. I thought i think that Your leadership i've always been a big huge backer. The weather service. And i think your leadership i think people Within the weather service definitely resonated with your leadership and again you're a louis people personalities also former trout president of the american meteorological society. What do you. What do you see the weather service looking like in ten twenty years. I mean how will look different than it looks. Well one of the interesting things is you know if you look at what we do in our mission statement from producing Opposite the weather water climate observations forecasts and warnings and for the protection. And this is something that. I wrote up in the paper in the paper with john ten. Hove is that there's like. it's like an hourglass. The bottom part is the production. Part that lends itself to more centralisation More of you know. It based approach now but when you get for the protection of life and property and you gotta do the ids at every government level especially the local level in this country where mostly all the decisions are made for. Public safety is at the local. You gotta spread out so that lends itself to a decentralized we got do both okay we gotta have not only accurate messaging. We have to have consistent messaging. So what i see is an improvement and advancement by t- that allows us to extract. The relevant information. Were already producing. Observations and models are really extracted information in a much more effective way. Because we're probably just using about twenty to thirty percent of the information content and we need to extract but we gotta need that local presence. It's essential for decision making in the villages of of alaska southwest pacific states throughout conus the continental united states and puerto rico virgin islands. I mean you've got to have that local presence that understands what's happening on the ground as it's happening and understands the human factors of getting people make decisions in those locations. So i see the i see the footprint remaining the same the services being a lot more extensive in terms of the earth system. It's not just going to be the weather. It's going to be helpful. Boom which is already doing and really seeing through who forecast offices as the outlet. I mean things like the dad being environment. Prediction is going to be much more obvious from space weather to the oceans You're going to see this and it's gonna be it's gonna be through the national weather service it's going to be a center to see as we all ambition it already seconds or less louis. Someone's getting a call soon or maybe already About the succeeding us. National weather service director. What are some quick pieces of advice. You'd give well. I made up my mind. That if i only give advice to the next director if i math and it'll be in private right but i would say you've got the best workforce in the world. We know that mckinsey has done three analysis on us over six years. We got the best workforce committed to mission committed. The public.

"Service might chesterfield. who has the outstanding executive producer of weather geeks and someone. I know that you've met. And when you've come down and do the tv show He text me literally in real time. While we're doing this. He had a couple of questions that i want to honor my gun. Loud him nastier. A couple of questions be attacks. He was curious about. What did you wish you would accomplished. But didn't while you're the director of the national weather service and then he also wants to know what's the future of the national weather. So what what is there as we get -ccomplish that you wanted or had a real goal of getting accomplish about laci. They're you're still near. Yeah the The the rate at which we can improve the infrastructure The rate in which we can improve the models is certainly of something that Yeah everybody wishes and everybody in certain respects complains about right But we had such a usage infrastructure issue to deal with With respect to the budget as i noted but also with respect to how we receive data how we process it in a in general how we process for the models getting the computing capacity. Which we have. I mean i started with but to girly. And we're now up to you know we're going to be up to like you know Increased by four flops. The new i mean you know we're really exponentially increasing our computing power which is important part of this but the rate which he can do this Through the budget process even with the full support of the hill is not as fast as what i think people would like. We want to know is what i would like but it is what it is you gotta you gotta do what you have But i wish we could. Have you know got not done. But i wouldn't have done that at the expense of the focus. We had on the last mile because it's the delivery of the services that are really really important factor in saving lives and mitigating property loss. And that's what that focus. I wouldn't take away. It's just that getting that infrastructure built Took a bit longer than i even. I would have hoped for. Louis wear we. I mean i need to talk with me. And we we you know we hear about things coming forth you were just talking about the computing and i know they were sort of increase on funding after sandy and so forth where we in the great model race the for you. You hear about this all the time. I thought i always think it's a bit overblown out there. And sort of the weather social media world because the s. models world-class model at european models a world-class model. We use them both effectively. Where are we on that. Yeah the the european center Certainly has You know a great modeling system and they have a more restricted mission so they can really focus their compute power on that one Global model we have the forecast space weather to the ocean surface and down. We're now getting into our system. Science approach you fully couple miles chrysler so we got really short range. Very high resolution you. The researchers are clamoring for Gregory saw resolvable convective in sambas yell so boy anti talk about a huge challenge for national weather service. Yes while the thing is it's very exciting aspect to be working right but what we are doing is we're we're really redoing. The whole structure of models to make it more efficient building. The new dynamical core build in the bed of physics representation. I think our biggest weakness is is the Data assimilation yeah. We talked the choice. We made for multi model and samples. Wanted if we did that. It was very clear that our trip down the road for four dimensional variation analysis for data assimilation. Was going to be impeded you. We couldn't do both. We chose the multi model and sombor route right and we have a data assimilation system. Today that's built off of those in samba. approach that hybrid variations escape. But there's but there's a lot of work on optimizing code forty bar and we're involved in at work. And i believe that's another part brick in the wall of us moving forward in his whole modeling continual. But you know something you said. Was we all use. The the whole group model we have partnerships with the european centre with the uk met with canada. We've we exchange what we're doing right because our forecasters use them all us. All those mobs. It isn't one model against the other. Right pull them together and the forecast is have access to them. All and that's critical. And if you look at the verification i keep on telling get diversification of the at the age lately. Hurricane center forecast the best of all amazing. So so that's what we want to see right access to all these models a global effort in a partnership again a team International team trying to advance prediction now today. Even as we speak from an earth system science perspective fully couple applied from the measure scale all the way up to the sub seasonal seasonal scale with one functional system that leaves us room on a computer to do all kinds of research with it. So i think that this is what the futures pointing to and i think it'd be a very exciting time for who are does get the job After me i got cut. We'll have a lot of time left. But i got a couple more questions. Gotta get to one. I think is an important question warrior successor. Because i'm curious. In what advice you give to whoever steps into that role. But i'm particularly interested in how you louis have successfully navigated a political waters a sharpie gate. Sequestration government shutdowns. Sandy you you navigate all of this and your longevity in this role Suggests that you did it effectively. So how did you do it. And then what generally by the for your successor going. Well the simple fact with respect to managing within government that one has to accept is that appropriation law is what you live by. The budget process the executive ban can offer a proposal comes back is what you operate off of. That's appropriation. that's what comes from the hill. So you worked at. And i one of the things that i was blessed with as a period of time..

"And it's working still work do right but it's really working and And this is. This is the pathway now for the future is going beyond the forecast warning. Can i think with With the decision makers in the atmospheric type things like tornadoes etc and in water flooding. Still a big challenge as we say so. That's that's it that was it. Those are the things and and everything that came along with because we didn't lose sight of the science and technology that we would need to move the forecasts and warnings for but the job doesn't end there and i think that we saw that recently with ida off the national weather service forecast were amazing the remnants and an initial stages but getting that last mile there was clearly information that you won't put out a deal with significant flooding in the northeast but there were still challenges because of not so much the four k. That last mile it the thing is it's that's an added factor there. You know the magnitude of the rainfall of something that we've never seen before you know. We had that record with andrei with one point nine four inches in one hour in central park. You got smashed smashed by ida two weeks later. An hourly rainfall rate of three point. One five inches doesn't happen in the extra is the new york. She never happened before. So there's obviously an infrastructure build issue here. The infrastructure can't deal with magnitude rainfall. We're seeing the same thing. Southwest of nashville. We're where we're predicting the heavy rain. We're looking for the totals about right but the magnitude of the rainfall in a short period of time when we're dealing with something we haven't seen before. So how do you communicate that. It's got to be a learned experience. And emily happens for the first time. That's what you start learning from. Well that doesn't save the forty something lives lost Tragically in new york city right so we got to learn from this. We've got to learn from this but this is also an infrastructure issue and whether the built infrastructure in the urban environment in valleys where people live right whether that can handle this kind of rainfall. And i think the answer is no town so we got. We got a big societal issue. Here that has to be within. Of course this. I believe this is related to global warming. You we all know as scientists right. If the air's warm it's going to hold more water vapor and. We had a brief moment of heavy rain here. I live south of baltimore. And i was thinking to myself. You know what this thing really gets. This happened the night before. I see well. Listening really gets its act together in pennsylvania new york city if it rains like this long period of time. We're in trouble so we kept on. We kept on messaging net but not three point one five inches in in one hour and have a flash flood emergency in all five boroughs of new york city at the same time. Never had me first time. I add in the counties tend to northern nassau county to the east. I mean this was.

"And new and interesting tool right and we are back on a special edition of weather geeks. Podcast i'm dr marshall shepherd from the university of georgia and i'm talking to my friend and colleague dr luigi cellini who is now this week. His retirement from the national weather service's research most recently serving as the director. But as you just. He has a long career and legacy with noah And i i hope you miss some of the things he said there. Because again some of the foundations of our weather prediction enterprises. We know it. Today ensemble model a multi a model and symbols Climate forecast these things. You heard the origins of those during his time. As the director of in seven national senator environmental prediction again. Those that are familiar with. No you know about centers if you're not there. Sleep centers within noah people know about hurricanes international incident and so forth storm predictions. There got the national centers. And so that's kinda sort of the way the arranged. Okay now. i wanna fast forward to the national weather service directorship when you walked in the door there. What was your biggest challenge The the budget Structure the budget process a lack of governance document We were coming out of financial Misstep a Refer to it That was pretty serious. And so we were not fa favorite child of those on the hill since the people on the really do care about the national weather. Somebody tell you that. You know by bicameral bipartisan. Incredible support for the instrument service So that's what i walked into and i That's the first step. Two things one We had to get a a budget process. We had to get a structure a process and governance document that people the senior executives the management team could make work to support those forecasters in the field of the folks in the weather service. Who also responsible for it development model development etc to get that focus again supported that we would improve not only our forecast but our outrage to the emergency management community And that's where the weather ready nation aspect comes in but that was my first task and we got it done basically in two years. And it's amazing when you think about it. Because i had to get approval through to the hill to restructure the budget. Because that's the way we get our money. That's we're going to execute the budget the that were appropriate it through congress. They have to approve everything rightfully saw so we made the case we showed it. We had a run it in parallel with our old budget structure and show them the advantages of the new system. We had to develop a governance document and say this is the way it works is the way we plan. This is the way we develop the execution aspect of it. Schedules cetera et. This is the way we track it on a quarterly basis. And and and that's a three year cycle that we work We got that done. And i was back through the natural kademi public administration. That actually recommend that we do this After we laid out our concerns what we needed to do they never seen it get done and get it done in two years so that was really important and i can tell you that from a budget a planning budget appropriation. Budget execution perspective We've run on eight cylinders and we haven't had a problem Since okay And one of the one of the things that i did with the governance documents which i would stay would credit jack. Kelly who i worked under for a three to five years depending on how you can. His positions You know power the pen right. All the astor's had assigned the The govern- starring so if you're gonna work as a senior executive in the national weather service you're gonna sign which man that everybody knew how you know. We were acting together. How we were planning and we to do runs. It's really more people really bought into it and one of the things. We update that governance document based on weaknesses. So it isn't like you signing it and say well. I'm not sure this is gonna work okay. Well we'll keep track of things that aren't working well update so all version four point. Oh it's sort of like a computer code for one of the big computers. Find out that it's not working. As all the researchers in model developers thought it has to be adjusted to version two and then university threat. Well we're on version four point. Oh this was. This was critical. Okay so that was. Step one in sort of in parallel. Was the weather station where we came to the realization in two thousand eleven to a weather season was sort of the epiphany for us that the modernization is great as it was. That's accessible wasn't bringing in the new technology degreed meteorologist etc etc a new structure. You know especially with next ride you know being centerpiece for our warning systems. A new structure of the forecast. We did a great job in forecasting out looking forecasting watching and learning all these severe weather outbreaks and incredible number of people were dying equivalent to what we saw. Nineteen seventy four. Two thousand eleven April outbreak was almost equivalent to the one thousand nine hundred ninety. Four outbreak That's a famous Severe weather outbreak in the central part of the country. Almost the exact same number of people died into a three hundred sixteen and one hundred fourteen. What's missing the last mile addressing. The connection to the people who actually in the communities evacuating communities on hurricanes preparing communities from severe weather outbreak. Actually we had to connect with water resource managers for droughts floods etc so that any nation strategic plan which was developed when jane lubchenco came in jank as was the weather so i was tactically the head of strategic team. Okay so get. Another team gets together with field. People the union vice president People from mensa really solid And the idea was With weather ready nation from the one person who was not a meteorologist by the way came up with weather nation as an outcome for society right. Not hey help good as the front going to be forecasted now how is it going to affect society so you have to go the last one it becomes the service aspect models a great observations. Great you need you need. The allergy need the models..

"Be the career highlights and i got the weather service jobs. One of the most exciting projects going on at the weather channel right now. Is something called immersive mixed reality. Yes i am are and if you don't know what it is. That's one of the reasons. We're doing this podcast today because you probably have seen if you watch the weather channel. So let's start at the beginning. Where do decision come from to go in the direction and why. Yeah so it really started you know what first of all as a weather producer Been weather producer for almost twenty years. dating myself. A little bit there but You know growing up in telling whether stories we we had these weather graphics. Applications that allowed us to graphics together present them to the to the audience In the background. I've always watched these video games and Seeing the incredible power these video games. And i always in the back of my head imagined. What could we do with that. And a lot of other folks here at the weather channel thought the same thing and then about a five or six years ago. New technology camera tracking capability came out and that allowed us to Augment the graphics into our studio space what we basic a are and what camera tracking capability allows us to do is place the graphic into the studio then track track. That graphic as if the graphic was really there so now we're able to put graphics into the studio space when it or not really there so this is.

"That was your first real taste of operational side right. Oh yeah oh yeah and i. Bill bonner unfortunately passed away. Several years ago. I've been in communications with mcpherson and would stole even like last night and i still ask them what were the he's making. They hired me. I really wanted to do it. And i'd spend time on the floors and visiting scientists but They took a chance with me And certainly Made a point of Emphasize into the folks on floor. When i became the division chief that i was there for them. and Boy you know that floor needed it because there was no there was it was all analog techniques it was all you know copying paper. There was no unix. There were just. They were just starting to play around with some workstations. It was It was the old days. Okay and Look where they are this. What's the weather prediction center now. Okay so yeah just just an amazing story and i think lessons learned for some of you that i know listen. The weather geeks in net one thing that we said is how his research career you know progressed into different areas in also how he stepped out of a comfort zone perhaps research at nasa inches or more of an operational environment. So what a transition out of your national weather service career in thinking really more about your time as the director of the national weather service give so much. The weather ready nation obviously is a big part of your legacy. Would you consider your biggest national weather. Service director legacy. Are there others well. You always skipped over fourteen years. The answer sounds good tour to fill in that gap. Because i think it is relevant to your experience becoming a national weather service director. So you think. That's where. I probably i became aware of you. Actually as the as determine set so tell us about those years. Yeah i olympic about it. Because i was actually what i was in. Mo leading mld mcpherson. Who had that job before me and then hired me into their became. The mc director. He he had to strategic vision for up but we had to put together so we put together a team. And i was the head of that team so the whole team that put together as as we know that now with but without space weather space weather came on board in two thousand five when i was in but you know putting that all together He he put that team that i was put in charge of a really did a phenomenal job again. You know this whole idea of team right a in something. I learned at nasa. You gotta have the team to make things to make things were while. Didn't know that. I would someday be the head of an sep what i came back. Nineteen ninety nine Kelly was actually selected to be the the head of Ends up replacing ron. You know there's a of work to do. And one of the things was we had a we. We were frozen computerized for ten years. in the ninety s where we even as the what was now. The environmental modeling center was really moving. Things forward from resolution The global models the regional models that we were that were being developed. Couldn't get him on the computer. So finally you know ninety nine. As i was coming on board we were just getting the first ibm system. Parallel processing with the first operational center in the world to go to parallel process. If there was a risk but there was a reward you know and we will leasing. Computers not owning. So we'd have more flexibility in building up the space so all that started happening Ninety eight ninety nine timeframe and with that new computer. Something very important happened. Was we decided. Based on scientific experiments right. Same ex- experiment in the midwest. The thought experiment globally. Which i was involved with through the wmo insolvable model and multi model and sambas is the best way to go so we introduced a sheriff and we introduced the digests global forecast system and then the on the north american idol. Because we were in partnership with canada through packs working real time so the realization of multi model and samples really hit and. That's we make that strategic decision to go that way and build our modeling capabilities that way than we did this. Climate forecast system and operational climate forecast system for seasonal prediction. Working with the research community. Have a six member multi model insolvable. Lynette so i can ted. We were the first operational center. Have a seamless suite of multi model samples from the short range to the to the seasonal range. And that's what we run today. Now we've got optimize it. We've got to streamline it through the unified forecast system in light but that was a major effort and the building. i don't know you have. Did you ever get to go to the world weather building. Did louis i. Actually i feel like actually maybe talk to run there before you came in as a grad student. Okay well that was not a building that you wanted to build the national centers violent prediction and say impressive from officials dead. And you know it's just a mess actually and people trying to get out out of it. They tried to get a project where we could move nearer. So when i came on board made top priority was to get out of. That building took thirteen years but we got out. We got into a beautiful building that matches the mission of what we do with the collaborative now collaborative service centers. The emc nasdaq days. Away are all in the same building working together. Great conference center. International meetings have been held there before kovin so it became an environment that people wanted to come to work in and it forced at the collaboration within the building. Okay not you walk in an elevator. Ten feet into a building. Tempe elvin you disappeared in your office. The whole day. It's a wide open atrium and on people interact better. And it's it's really terrific. And i'm really looking forward to the post. Covert era when everybody can get back in there. I was there yesterday. It stalled strikes me really beautiful environment to get the work so from that perspective. That you know. The seamless sweet the collaborative nature of the fork other senators and and the building itself was what i thought would be the career highlights and i got the weather service jobs. One of the most exciting projects going on at the weather channel right now. Is something called immersive mixed reality. Yes i am are and if you don't know what it is. That's one of.

"Him. Louis thank you for joining us on this well. I don't want to say perhaps last episode of well weather geeks with us national as a guest but perhaps as the national weather service director while what what an amazing career what. What got you to this point that you decided it was time to hanging up. Well our been Been doing this for fifty plus years As a research meteorologist versus a student that got involved in activities even as an undergraduate and and worked on My first paper was on the gravity lever. I i did that as a bachelors and master's thesis and i've been on the go ever since doing a phd getting involved with national programs a student And then going to nasa and building a research career. There of course being at the university of wisconsin and getting all my degrees there before i went to nasa able to work a with verne sumi in his his team on what was then the new satellite you know era that was emerging out of that institute And it's just been non stop and at the same time you know and my wife and at the university of wisconsin She's been there a step of the way. We just celebrated our fiftieth anniversary. And we realized you know it. It's time right so anyway It's it's a tough decision i can. I can tell you. I can forewarn you. It's it's the toughest decision to make. Actually make your body. Where i'm i'm sitting here juicer. You you've done so much for the enterprise and infirm nolan. Whether i don't even know where to sort of dive on this. But i want to start the question with you. I mean what what are you. Let's let's let's go back to your research contributions first before i go with the national weather service. What do you feel is your most significant contribution from your research reviving people know your weather. Career majority esteemed researcher your book with paul coast on winter. Storms is just one of the the go-to resources so from a research perspective. And i and. I know this is not a swansong for you. But what are you reflect. That is your most important contribution research wise. Well i was. I was obviously always curious about the weather. Ackerman child in the wise. You know. I wanted to know why things happening. And of course. I was always interested in wife forecasts for wrong as a kid especially when forecasting snow. We got rain But in all seriousness. I was just to the university of wisconsin. I was Elated with what. I was learning about something. I always wanted to know more about and so there was gravity. Waves i just. What are these this periodic nature in the convective storms and then that led to gravity papers. That at the time was was very controversial. Now now it's except the two to four hour. Gravity waves foreign supposed to be able to exist right much less you know affect the development of Severe weather and then the jets. The jet streaks I read a little book. I got out of out of a supermarket by elmore writer. They had the series. The science on jet streams. Right that i should spend. This is what i wanted to do. And then i started doing the research on jetstream. Cyclones got to nasa. I mean in start working for joins simpson after working for getting my masters unto charlie anderson who let loose on average lady. Shimano is grandpa. Had nothing to do with it and then went work for joe and At at nasa. I i just fell like From going from don johnson as my phd adviser to john and it was like a dream from a research perspective. Just being allowed to work things we saw as important and and do it as a team. That was the other thing about. You know going to nasa. Was their team approach. You saw it. Every day missions engineering and in the science in having a team and having a kadri of people that you know you're recruiting to come in. Just you know the best and the brightest coming out of the university at the time and just everybody and it was just. This is terrific experience and just everything we touched seem the work. The president's day storm Became the vase. Demonstration scientists the vizor atmospheric silence the first geostationary. Sound actually up to this point. It's the only geostationary sounder from the united states. At least and doing work with that you know working with sounding scientists that a brilliant and split windows. So you know i. It was just one thing after another that we touched worked for us in more for me and Certainly i used everything. I was learning during that period to bring over to the weather service. When i made that switch because i also wanted to improve the forecast which over time eighty nine. Yeah so i got my phd. In seventy seven one year post are under don johnson. A post doc with burn sumi and Sec signed a space signs. An engineering center and over the nasa for almost eleven years Most of it working with joanne simpson. And and the group she allowed us allowed me to develop Under her and then took that went over to the meteorological operations division. The largest forecast office in the national weather service. Bill bonner and ron mcpherson hired me. And i didn't have one day. Experience forecast for now is gonna point on that because that's interesting right into the operationally in from based on what i know about you..
Gary Ginsberg Talks About His New Book 'First Friends'
"And there is really a fantastic book that's been out. It's called First Friends by Gary Ginsburg. Who's got quite a pedigree himself. Gary, How are you, sir? Very well, Thank you for having me Well, it's a fantastic book. And, uh, unfortunately, like every other Interview. There's only so much time, so let's jump right in these first friends that have an enormous influence on the president on an administration. Chapter one talks about Jefferson and Madison. Now, this audience is quite familiar with Jefferson and Madison. But Madison Was very, very close to Jefferson. I'm not sure how how much people know about that. Tell us Well, I certainly didn't. I knew they were great collaborators. But what I learned in writing this book is that they were also best friends, and they were best friends for 50 years from 17 76. So when Jefferson died on July 4th 18 26, and what I found fascinating is that they're 50 EUR 50 year relationship with deep it was emotional. It could veer between the serious like whether we needed a bill of rights to the deeply personal, For example, when Jefferson tried to help Madison overcome being jilted by a 15 year old when he was 32 years old, and they were complete opposites as I write, Jefferson was this tall, dashing Huge personality. Madison was five ft four and quite reserved, but it worked in combination and I think it's because Jefferson needed Madison's exacting mind and practical nature. As much as Madison needed Jefferson's bold ideas in large personality, and I think in my book, and I think in American history, it's probably the single most powerful friendship in the history of America.

"50 years" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"Today we read about god's judgment on several more enemy nations and cities. We probably won't remember all of them and some you may not even recognize. That's okay chapter. Forty nine is like a destruction charcuterie board. It's got a lot going on. We start out with amman. as in the ammonites if you're familiar with the modern day city of amman jordan then you have an idea of where these people are located there. Israel's neighbors to the east. God says he will drive them out of their land but like we saw with moab yesterday he also promises that they will experience restoration afterward. And i'll be honest. I have no idea why. I read eleven commentaries about this and none of them gave a reason for it. Mostly they either said oh. Hey he did that for moab to or they basically said wow god is merciful to his enemies so maybe this is just to display his mercy. Who knows then we move onto judgment against him. These people are the descendants of e saw. You may recall that. E saw is the older twin brother of jacob israel who was the father of the twelve tribes esau and jacob israel have been enemies since they were in the womb together god promises judgment and destruction for the estimates too but he adds an interesting caveat in verse eleven. He says he will be the one to take care of their orphans and widows in verse twelve. There's a prophecy that could have two layers. It says if those who did not deserve to drink the cup must drink it. Will you go unpunished at the time. This meant that there were people who suffered through the effects of god's judgment who had been faithful to him. The remnant of israel still had to be driven out of their land as a result of the sins of those who were destroyed sin has consequences that reach far beyond. Just the person who is disobedient. No one sends in a vacuum so god is basically saying to them. Look if the remnant of my people have had to endure exile and destruction because of sin and rebellion. Then you're definitely not getting off the hook because you're not even my people. The second potential layer of prophecy is that this could be pointing to christ. He had to drink the cup. He didn't deserve to drink three times. He asked the father if there was any other way and three times. The father said no. Jesus drank the cup of the father's wrath toward the sins of his people. He paid for those sins. But these people who don't know god are having to pay for their own sins. He says his cup is filled to the brim for them. Next up. is damascus a city in modern day syria. Which is north of israel. He promises to burn it with fire. I also think it's interesting that the phrases got associates with his enemies and their circumstances are the opposite of what he associates with his kids. God's people will not be afraid because he's with him but for his enemies. He says things like they melt in fear they are troubled like the see. That cannot be quiet. Panic seized her anguish and sorrows have taken hold of her. While god's people experience his presence to bless his enemies don't experience his absence. They experience his presence to judge then. We have qatar and heyzer both of which are cities in northern arabia. I had to let these up. They've managed to avoid a lot of drama other nations experienced. In fact things are so low key for them that they don't even have city gates so they're probably super vulnerable but probably don't even realize it and king nebi will come in and take advantage of that for his gain and for their destruction qatar in hazoor or like our friends from a small town who bragged that they never have to lock their doors. And like you big city folks but then they get robbed our last judgment in chapter forty nine is on ilam and once again they're an enemy nation he promises to restore and once again. I have no idea why from my vantage point. It seems to be arbitrary. But from god's vantage point perhaps he's just choosing who he wants to be merciful to. Jesus said something kind of like this in matthew five forty five. He said the rain falls on the just and on the unjust in modern language. That sounds like you saying bad. Things happen to everyone. But an ancient language rain was a blessing so jesus was actually saying that god sends out some of his blessings on all mankind like common grace and nations like amman and ilam get caught up in the current of his kindness. Then we moved to the judgment of babylon in chapter fifty after god uses babylon to punish israel and judah then he judges babylon and lays it to waste. He says it will be the last of the nation's which kind of sounds like it will be the final survivor. But what that actually means is that it will be the least prominent in position. It will be the bottom tier. When god destroys babylon it will also end the captivity of his people who were there. How very efficient. Then the remnant from among israel and judah will return to zion with hearts that love god and that remember and rejoice in the everlasting covenant. He made with them. What was your god shot from. Today's reading mine was in fifty twenty. It says in those days and in that time declares the lord iniquity shall be sought in israel and there shall be none and sin judah and none shall be found for. I will part in those whom i leave as a remnant. This says a lot more about god than it does about people got isn't saying his people will be senlis. He saying that their sins will be pardoned. The very act of pardoning suggests that there has been sin. God people do sin but wing. God looks at his kids. It doesn't point to our sin. He points to a righteousness which is as we know the righteousness of christ christ's death on the cross made atonement for our sins and because he paid the penalty we received the pardon. he's where the righteousness is and he's where the joy is those of you who aren't familiar with patriot on i'll fill on what it is we live in a world where most quote unquote free.

Sean Parnell Says Afghanistan Strategic Blunders Will Be Studied for Years to Come
"Mark. There were so many unbelievably grave strategic blunders that will likely be studied at military academies for the next 50 years about how not to conduct an excel. The the Afghan National Army was structured very similar to ours in that ground power. Is augmented with air power. But when Joe Biden pulled out their contractors that service their aircraft, he effectively decimated their air force. And so early on in this Taliban offensive, the Afghan National Army We're actually fighting back. But when they saw that they had no air support and likely no American support. I think they they just threw their hands up and said it's not worth it. The next question I have, and I really would like to know who is responsible for this for this decision, and I think it's President Biden. Is who made the decision to abandon Bagram airbase Before all of our American citizens and allies could be evacuated out of the country. It's shocking one of the greatest. It's one of the greatest strategic blunders. In America in the last century mark. There are only a few airstrips in Afghanistan, where you can actually land the plane. The Taliban controlled Kandahar, the Taliban. Control. Bagram, now in Kabul is almost overrun. So how exactly it's not just as simple as sending 5000 or 6000 more troops back into Afghanistan because we don't necessarily have a foothold to do it. And and all of this, every bit of it is laid right at the feet of Joe Biden. Had we killed bin Laden. The Taliban and Al Qaeda were absolutely decimated. We had almost a decade to plan and effective withdrawal, and it was completely destroyed and seven months of the Biden administration. It's just

"50 years" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report
"And it doesn't work. There's hysterics in the market. They tried that. In in the fall of two thousand nineteen and overnights rate shot up to ten percent so they had to back off when i made a feeble attempt to shrink the balance sheet so they have really no tools other than their gabbing and convincing people and the markets respond pretty well because when when the fed announces policy. You know the the banks are happy and the stock market. Seems to be happy no matter what you do But that just means to me that the The system now tolerates a bigger bubble than ever before probably bigger than ever seen in all history. So chris we do have a bunch of people who thinks that it's transitory but more and more now real they they you know they know that is just a lot of market that this is transitory. This is impossible to solve without some real real solutions which means that there will be a penalty for it. And why one thing that i try to. Emphasize is that any individual company corporation country. Or whatever if you live way on your means you will be forced eventually to live beneath your means and that is known in individuals that if they get too much debt and the bank loan them anymore money again eventually their standard of living goes down and you say well no with a fair. They keep earning money. Yes they will do that and they'll get away with it and sell them. We'll be able to get more in their favor but he eventually the telltale sign of this thing Not working so well. Anymore is the cost of living goes up and the value of the money goes down Chris i think we're entering an era now is going to get much much worse before the people and our our so called leadership in washington wake up and decide maybe maybe there is an answer. It's not found in keynesian. Inflation them very good doctor pool. And you are correct. Inflation is transitory in the same way. That fifteen days will flatten curve So you can think of it that way and you know even though they are bankers members of the fed You could treat them like politicians what they say makes headlines every week but it means very little i mean think of all the bubbles that you may have lived through and the longer one has been here. The more bubbles. I know i've been through my share of them. All the bubbles and busts at the fed creates think back of how many times the fed chairman went on tv. And said you know what you should really salman valve. Now's the time for yourself. Never and how many times have you heard say yeah. I was watching the fed chairman the other day and i took his word to now and financially independent again. You will never hear that because the fed is not our financial adviser. It is a marriage of the banking industry and the government. So it's the same old story of corporations married to the government. We have the pharma. We have the military. We have the media but the fed is the worst of them all because they make all the others possible. You know the fed is not there for us. They are they what they do..
Veteran Suggests Recruiting Other Veterans to Teach in Classrooms
"That we need to do what these liberals have done over the last 40 or 50 years, And we have to infiltrate the education system and one of the ways we do that is we need to recruit our veterans. To get into the classroom. And to teach our kids I like that. There's a way that we can start to infiltrate this system. We can't expect it to happen overnight. They didn't expect it to happen overnight. Well, the first thing we need to figure out in each school district because they're not all the same as how do they hire teachers? What's it based on? Figure it out. And then figure out how to overwhelm that system with people who we like. South Carolina What I see and I'm one of them. I'm one of them. I did that now I'm a coach. But I also teach a class in the school and I'm an Air Force veteran, and all you need is a college degree and a teaching certificate. This is in South Carolina. This is probably the case for most most of the states. Even in most school systems. I think this is easy. We have to start. It's not easy. It's not easy. In fact, one of the things we're going to figure out is In every school districts Different and that is how it is that these these teachers get get hired, and, uh Something tells me this is very much a clothes shop. And so I don't want people to think this is easy because it's not Uh, And so we want to look at that. We want to look at color. I'll talk more about this in a week or two. I'm going to look at colleges. You know, we want to look at the whole thing. But I want to thank you for your call to my friend. I appreciate easy It's not but doesn't mean it can't be overcome. Because I think the unions have a lot of say on who is hired.

They formed in nineteen sixty seven. Put out twenty five studio albums released between seventy one and twenty twenty. The documentary describes them as your favourite bands. favourite band. Completely new to me. Were you familiar with sparks before this. Doc adam would you think of it. Well i do want to clarify what you just said you said completely new to you. Were they truly completely new to you just as they were to me meaning before. This documentary came out before you maybe saw anything about it online. Had you ever heard of sparks or anybody referred to as the sparks brothers or ron and russell nail. Not until they were mentioned as a subject of edgar rightback. Yeah exactly so you watch this film. And i think maybe part of the measure of success in terms of whether or not right accomplish what he was trying to accomplish and whether or not. It's a good documentary. You have to answer. that question. does a band that. I've never even heard of really warrant a documentary and justify the time i'm going to put into it. And by the end you're legitimately wondering how nobody has made a movie about them before. And you're you're questioning your validity as a music fan as an arts connoisseur. You are not questioning. And i'd say even after about fifteen minutes you're not questioning their validity as artists because of the music because of the story or both both are. That's the thing you can't you can't separate them the tagline on the website. You see if you places says fifty years twenty five albums three hundred and forty five songs unlimited genius

Hey you wanna be cool like me I don't do crack because doing crack is like putting a loaded gun in your mouth and pulling the trigger and that state in my mind for a long time. Some of my assumptions were that a drug like crack. Cocaine was so addictive one hit is all that was required for the user to become addicted. Everyone who smoked crack cocaine eventually became addicted and then about the people who use drugs. I thought they were horrible people. I thought that they were irresponsible. People i thought that they could only focus on getting another hit if their drug. It would take me a good fifteen years to start questioning the story that i was telling myself. Is it fair to say you were scared of drugs. Yeah it's fair to say that. I was absolutely scared of drugs. I believe those messages so much so i decided to study drugs And try and figure out how.

"50 years" Discussed on The TED Interview
"But my first fifty years you could even take my first fifty nine. A few things changed like ivan iphone. My parents didn't but so much stayed the same. Like i grew up being carted around in a car. Now i drive a car. My car's better safer. It has side airbags better sound system. I sit on a sofa now. I sat on a sofa. Then rates completing college and high school depends how you measure them. Maybe they're up a bit but so much of the country works on the same principles again. I would say computers. The internet is an exception but other than that sector. life hasn't changed nearly as much. So what you just said. That runs counter to a huge panoply of sort of people have spoken at ted who are obsessed with technology and believe that it's almost in the nature of certain technology but but many would extend it to human culture human history to have accelerating change. I mean the big idea at the heart of it is the each piece of innovation creates the conditions by which the next piece of innovation can happen foster. And so you know the obvious examples like you know. The printing press spread all this knowledge so that things sped up you know the. The arrival of computers created tools. That would allow much rapid innovation. The internet connection us all spread innovation and so forth. And it's backed by things like moore's law way fundamental engines of distribution of information doubling empowered at a shockingly rapid pace And yet your argument goes fundamentally against says. That is missing the wood for the trees correct. I think it's relatively small changes compared to what my grandmother saw. Now note the. Us government collect statistics on the value of innovation and as best we can measure it in the nineteen twenties and nineteen thirties. Innovation was adding value at a rate of about two to three percent a year and more recent times. We're actually lucky if the value added from innovation is one percent a year and sometimes it's half a percent a year so that's a big difference especially when you compound it so i think the number is support. My view and the anecdotes support my view. But i absolutely would admit computing..

"50 years" Discussed on Earful: A Disney World Podcast
"Blazing caribou studios dot com louis creek tombstones quake with us breath and we are back now onto our main topic the haunted mansion probably say for the moment my favorite attraction in all of disney world it is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary in disneyland park and so all the parts are kind of <hes> having their own celebrations for but we wanted to take a look at the history of the attraction how it came to be throughout the years and all the changes that it went under and all of the things that it inspired because <hes> inspired quite a lot of things pop culture yesterday yesterday yeah what about yesterday bursary yeah yep and fifty years the haunted mansion asian was first located at disneyland but has since expanded to disney world and tokyo disneyland it took off and inspired phantom manor and mystic manor at disneyland paris and hong kong disneyland respectively so the history of the ride disney legend harper goff developed looked black and white sketch of a street leading away from main street with church graveyard and finally lead up to a rundown manner they they took this idea and imagine you're anderson created a story around goff's idea plans were made to build a new orleans themed land in the small area between between frontier land adventure land in disneyland. However walt disney rejected the idea of having a rundown building marc he did not like the thought that hat amongst all this these perfectly constructed attractions that there'd be a house purposely looking rundown and bad so he imagined years. It's like came to a decision that said find. The house will look good. The inside will make look like it's haunted so the the that's why the outside look so great and that the inside is is very very compromise so imagine you're ken anderson. He envisioned the stories for the mansion. Originally there was going to be a tale of a ghostly captain who killed his bride and then hanged himself so we kind of get a little bit of that with the opening of the ride but it's not quite that narrative right because if you look up there's something that was hanging from yeah person yeah. It's meant to be mr gracie who is the manner manner of the house so we do still have that the original ideas. We're also going to have a ghostly wedding party with well known disney villains in spooks. No i'm gonna thing right yeah so at the parks they started handing out posters and promotional materials and nine hundred sixty one <hes> that they were going to open the ride in one thousand nine hundred sixty three however the exterior was actually finishing sixty three and the the right itself hope was finished in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine there was delays due to disney's involvement in the world's fair and then they had to redesign it a little bit after walt's death in nineteen sixty six walton not not live to see this right open. He actually wanted to pair the haunted mansion with a restaurant so it never never happened obviously but the restaurant was going to be called museum of the weird and it was going to feature other artifacts that didn't make it into the eventual ride. They're still had them rumors that float around every now and then about a restaurant dedicated mansion which i would totally go to maybe next week. We'll hear some room. I don't think that's the secret project. It's going to be bigger than just. I didn't didn't mean to twenty three next episode. We'll have the low down for you next week yeah so this is fun as they were designing the ride lead the magic had themselves a big store warehouse to keep all of their projects and stuff and they had the animatronic there and one night they forgot to turn off the electric gear at apparently the janitors were so spooked by the running animatronic. They left their equipment behind and did not return. I would too because back then nineteen sixty six like think about the tech back then. I guess it's still kinda. Spooky nowadays buses following me. There was a big big debate whether or not the ride would be frightening like a traditional haunted house or enjoyable so what you see. Today is a mixture of both of those thoughts. I don't see the terrifying think of it. I think it's it's scary for little kids for sure. It can be very very scary because kids are scared of the dark number one so it's a dark ride and there's there's definitely some things in it that are very terrifying if you if you have a vivid imagination and can be easily spooked when it opened the attraction was an immediate success it was so successful that it opened a version of itself elf in magic kingdom in nineteen seventy one and as i said it's an it was an opening day attraction there and then tokyo disneyland in nineteen eighty three the version at at disneyworld is slightly longer and a little bit more elaborate than the disneyland. I miss it when did disneyworld's opened eighteen seventy one seventy one years shy your birthday. That's right that's right gave birth that was reading here that the one of the reasons why they delayed when they were delayed was because they were working on the new new york's world fare product grad. Oh interesting as lavar favorite guilty pleasures disneyland disney world in ninety five life they added the very popular player piano feature to the ride and if if you also want us to be further in some versions agents he's playing a rachmaninoff styled version of the ride's theme song grim grinning ghosts and other versions. He's playing like an a minor minor key. The funeral march so depends on where you're at in two thousand and one. You're gonna love this bob disney. A newer more detailed safety safety spiel way up the stairs was added to the onboard audio of the dune buggy in the load area featuring voice over artist paul frees. He's well actually didn't didn't feature him and it featured his impersonator joe lee he because he passed away and it gave a bilingual safety spiel as part of a park wide attempt to increase safety at attractions. He's up the stairs. He's come back down now. You stab there bob. Yeah go get tinkerbell ready in also two thousand and one that is when they first premiered the very popular holiday layover with nightmare before christmas teaming that was at the land has never done that and would love to see it takes a long time they start. I think i i read it. It's something like mid. I'll tell you later on. I have it in yeah. It takes a while for them to totally transform it because there's a lot they add two thousand seven and walt disney. World's version got an update two thousand eleven this is this is really cool. They added the interactive queue that walt disney world that was not always there so the things with the the books that move the musical instruments dot added two thousand fifteen saw the return of the hatbox ghost disneyland he was it. I removed early on in the process because the trick of moving his head to his hatbox wasn't cutting it they didn't they didn't like it so two dozen fifteen was when they finally had the the proper that oh i would love to see it absolutely and also because the one at disneyland looks very different from the one in disneyworld right yeah and then recently twenty nineteen photo pass was added to magic kingdom version and you can get picks via your magic band. They are sent directly to your magic band without you having to scan it yes actually they. They take the picture. This is this kind of ironic. They take the picture as soon as they're done saying. Please no no flash photography. Remember the now because it's the last photo there's a photo on the wall and it flashes yup. That's it. I we didn't know that until later that was the actual picture the tiger tiger girl yes yeah so the right system itself. I love these rights as a while tower of terror so much along with this ride because of the setup right. It's not just the ride which disney ride truly is just a ride. There's there's there's always something something but the fact that you're walking through the interactive queue the fact that when you go into the first room there's a there's a fireplace with with the changing portrait of master gracey and then into the stretching room and then into finally the rides actual cue to get onto the doom buggies so i love it. You're surrounded by that atmosphere for ten minutes minutes before you actually get onto the rock makes it seem more realistic. I think that's why tower of terror so successful. Also yeti feels the same way as well and pirates. You talked about some some of the voices yeah. I have more names. You have names. I have a lot on the voices okay. Gosh we talk about a mention that the main character is master gracey see he's named after imaginer yale gracey who developed many of the illusions including madame liotta. Oh nice nod a nod of the head yes so your ghost host that you really tried hard to to our god. You did not not quite the right words but this is paul frees who this is really cool. He's the voice of borst bad enough in the rocking bowl winkle shells right and he was a friend of voice actor mel blanc he was known as the man of a thousand four hundred also so was the disney who've character professor ludwig von drake along with the auctioneers in pirates of the caribbean and he also recorded dead men. Tell no tales for the ride awesome awesome. The voice was almost walt disney he had recorded it but they went with something else in the end so imagine the ride having walt disney's voice was the the first line of it again. Let me tell you you're going to do bob disney when hinges creep in doorless chain when hinges crew is terrible. This is not safe to get some light on. Oh yeah i think bob visiting the attraction fully lit the whole time. Oh there's no about that yeah. Nothing would look remotely the same you see all the strings and everything yeah you'd be completely safe so this is a cool fact the stretching room that is like pre show to in disneyland win the chamber stretches. You're actually on an elevator that takes you down below because they are are there strapped for space in disneyland used to actually go under the railroad street yeah so that's disneyland disneyworld. They don't have that problem. There's no elevator baiter through the roof. Just grows the paris. I blew the same way cool off to go explore that i think is the same way once you get past the ride queue and your and your doom buggy dougy than you are taken through several different scenes including portrait hall a floating candelabra in a hallway moving doors endless staircases the ballroom madame madam liotta seance the bride's attic hatbox ghost..

"You had to pick being stuck in a monorail car for an hour or in the guest service line for two hours great question in this thing i haven't read the answers and i see there's a number of them excited. He's had a ton of answers this week. Mathilde mouse which is a new disney podcast that we met on instagram said we want both they would like both but if we can have both we'll take the monorail trap oh see now. I see i would say the monterey nap but yes very good. Elena pau thirty six said monorail car because there is air conditioning instead of standing in the heat for two hours sherry sherri. L. said neither would bring out my cheerful side but if i had to pick i think it would be the to our guest service line. I just pretend i was in line for a ride. We say minoza with all the time when we were in line for roy moore when we're in line anywhere with a real life animatronic at the end makes h said neither both just gave me a massive panic attack just looking at the picks fix sue h said monorail as long as i was sitting i would just pull out my phone miles and memories for travel forever said monorail and last but not least seth m said. Is there a third choice possibly a bullet behind my ear. Can we work something out. You think a little too soon so a friend of from the jockey nerd podcast group on facebook facebook that we are both a part of a podcast that we listened to you and have been on the line. We love the podcast love imran anthony over there. If you are into geek culture we strongly strongly urge you to only stop. You're only stop right there. The very very thorough podcast they talk about a little bit of everything on there so look them up in our segment questions with captain jim on social media we asked cap and jim what's the best place to take nap the disney parks so obviously it's on the monorail break sent. That's very good captain. Jim had a lot of responses for this question he he said to us. Initially now you're talking to an expert in no particular order hollywood studios does is his area of expertise. He suggests going over to the muppet area and even the attraction itself is a good spot for an app now. I'd be curious to know if jim thinks that continue to be a good place after star wars landed opens oh. I think it'd be a even better place. 'cause there's one of those entrances over there. I think ooh ooh good point. Yes very good point. He also said if you are resort hopping the contemporary is a lovely place for an app the first second and third floors specifically we go to the convention area where there are no events going on. Ever little napa know win win. There are no events he said epcot tricky depending depending on the time of year but that the sees the u._k. Pavilion back in the courtyard and china are his top picks. He did not mention yours. No mine mine would be the inside the american vision on the cold cold sweet cold marble floor. He also said coronado springs would be true because it's also convention center so go find that when there's nothing going on the boardwalk and yacht and beach club convention areas see too much traffic so that would not be a good spot for a nap use the boats between epcot and hollywood studios the low and slow speed is very relaxing and that was it so thanks jim input on then we salute you captain jim and then we had a twitter poll something new that we tried this week who is your favorite haunted mansion character and the clearing <music> out winner worthy hitchhiking ghosts we also had options brimming no because we had options for madame liotta the singing busts who syndrome grinning ghost and the bride constance hatch away as we found out her name is some shoutouts this week. We wanna say hello to new friends. Diz oriented a disney disney podcast. We met them on instagram and you wanna know why they're lovely. Tomi 'cause they're from buffalo.
