Check Ride Turbulence - Preparing for the Check Ride
"Up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm good. This is a show that i think might blow off our top ten charts. Hopefully this is gonna be a new series that we're going to start doing every month called. Check ride turbulence. And that's a little bit of play on the words. Check ride and turbulence but these are going to be stories from flight school owner and a dp to make the check. Ride a little less bumpier to. We're gonna help people smooth those flights out and those check rides out And this week we're going to start with preparing for the check ride. And if you have check ride stories and that is you want us to do as part of this. Check rat turbulence every month show. Let us know this month is all about preparation for the check wally. I'm sure you've seen just about everything in your first four hundred and fifty check rides but on a scale of one to ten ten being the most prepared student that you've ever had that would have been me probably on the instruments. What would you say. The average level of preparation is for a check ride. I would say Somewhere around a seven so not bad right. Just a seventy percent is normally a failing grade right ryan so seven still not really really good right or professional pilots or people who wanna do something partake in something that could be dangerous. We want to shoot for better than seven. Yeah yeah good. I you know it's it it all goes to Preparation and at least with me I have an online scheduling system. If you if you book a check ride with me you're going to get a an email confirmation along with that email. Confirmation is going to be a letter It's the letter is is just over a page long and there's a lot of information on the ladder and if you use that letter. Basically as a checklist. You're gonna be in pretty good shape. I know several of the Other examiners here in houston use the same type of system. Where you you book it online and you'll get a confirmation What what i see is is the the m- farther out in advance that we can schedule a check ride and far farther out Before the check ride the student or the applicant is actually signed off in niagara. The better i would guess that. Probably fifty percent of applicants Before we even meet. I find some sort of missing something or other on the application the iraq application itself and it usually has to do with the flight times There's a little column off her class. Totals and it's Class totals and A lot of people miss that so Maybe it's a private pilot candidate. And they've got seven point nine hours of solo time and Or actually that'd be cross country. Let's say they got twelve hours of solo time. They should have in that class. Totals they should up twelve hours of of of single engine land. Pic time and a lot of times. They they missed. That and those are really easy things to fix. Because as i'm i'm sitting at home relaxing in the evening. I'm i'm looking a week ahead of time and i'm pulling up applications. I'm taking a look at things. And i'm i'm looking at the numbers on these applications and i see that it's real simple for me to go into my scheduling system and send you a text. Say i was looking at your application. I noticed she left out a column. I'm going to send it back to you right now and It's no big deal. It's no big deal. You know. I deal with akra daily I've i've dealt with it on on hundreds of applications and As a student pilot this may be your your second time to really deal with the i. Accra the first time being when you got your student pilot certificate. Now you're working towards your private and even the cfo is Extremely familiar with i acura. So i kind of know what things to look for. I'm looking for to meet the minimum requirements. Making sure there's three hours of inch talking about private. We're talking about parts sixty one Making sure there's three hours of instrument three hours a night time You know a lot of times you will see Then putting in the application that they have pic night landings which most of the time at this point The student pilot would not have that and Unless we're talking about Simulator time solo time plus dual time should equal total time so A lot of times. I'll see You know Tenth errors You know Twelve hours a solo time Fifty hours a dual time and total time of seventy two hours. Where would be sixty two hours so you know kind of make a A mental audit or a quick audit of the times to make sure they make sense. And again i would say probably forty five percent of the applications i yet before i ever even meet the applicant. i find some errors and we're able to fix that so that's probably the first thing and you know obviously if the application is done the day before sometimes it's not as easy to see those errors and then the morning of the check ride or the afternoon of the check. We're trying to fix these things. And i see the anxiety level on the applicant raising as they're dealing with this. They're they're thinking. Oh my gosh. I've made the examiner mad. Which isn't the case at all. I mean i just wanna get it right.
Experience a Lost Disney World Ride in Virtual Reality
"Defunct land vr. Lets you experience a classic disney ride twenty five years after it was closed. And this is something that i'm super into. I think it's really really interesting. So there's a couple things to talk about here. There's a youtube channel called defunct land which I would highly recommend you checkout. It's extremely fascinating stuff. They just but fifteen minute videos on old theme park rides That are no longer around and kind of. Why do they close. Or what was it like. And that sort of stuff. And i think a few years back it was there. The announced the patriots. It's like hey you know potentially if we get enough patrons we might try to recreate some of these old rides and vr. So they actually did it. They actually released a twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Which i didn't really know much about in fact When i saw this news i was familiar with defunct line. In fact there. Is that really great documentary. Class action park on. Espn defunct land. Did a video in action park. Actually before that even came out so anyway i was kind of aware of it but i went back and i watched their two parter to videos on twenty thousand leagues under the sea submarine voyage. And like i knew. I was going to download this. Vr thing. I thought you know what. Let me get some context. I watch those videos so cool. And finally i put on the headset and did it. And i just love this whole thing. I just love the idea of vr being away to just to just keep a repository of these things that are so the go away. You know what i mean. Yeah i mean this is. This is ready player. One stuff you know like this is like relive your child at least for me. I remember the twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Ride really super cool for folks that have never experienced it in one journey back into time that they never got to see for me this. This feels like this was what i remembered. It still feels weird that it's finding nemo on. It's been that way. Yeah how many years but That was when i was a kid. Christian. did you ever ride the twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Ride as a fourteen year old is how old i am now. I have. yeah. I definitely have and i remember where they did at disneyland. I don't know like florida like the rebrand for nemo i. It's gotten better but at first it was like. And here's nemo one clown fish in there and i was like clown actually actually wrote the nemo one i never. I never wrote the twenty thousand one. So i was kind of coming in reverse. You know like seeing what it was now and then taking a trip back in time to what it used to be. You know. I haven't done this yet is it. Is it a good experience the vr. Yeah it's pretty solid. I would say it's definitely on the lower end of fidelity it's very much an independent projects. I think he's done a new unity. And as i was watching. There's a couple of things it's actually pretty cool. Is like watching youtube videos. They talk about how the effect was created. And how you're basically in a boat. You're not you're you never really submerged under the water and if if you look up during the ride you can kind of see the surface of the water and they kind of recreated all those of You know behind the scenes things in this. Vr rights if you look at the water and stuff and if you'd like peak around to the left to right you can see the way the track benz like kind of a real amusement park where you can sort of see us to where you were and where you're going to be in that sort of thing so i like the way they did that. They didn't wear like it. They're trying to recruit the ride not the experience and so the jank that comes with it and what's funny is on a on a sub on another level like a meta level because you're now abstracting at one further with like low poly objects and characters. It's like a semi lack of a similar. Acura is kind of funny. Well i guess there's a bunch of this kind of stuff that's also in dreams like people are doing using the playstation for dreams platform which also supports vr vr to do a lot of Disney ride recreation and stuff super super. Cool

The Journey from Startup to Sold Again
"Hello and welcome to another episode of the duct tape marketing podcast. This is John My. Guest today is John Hall he is the former founder of great dot US online review tool and current founder and CEO of a company called Switch Bird, which connects your business phone and website to engage voice callers and website visitors via. Text. So we're GONNA talk a little bit about the idea of marketing and using text messaging but I. Welcome the show John. Thanks John could be here. So let's let's do talk about I have a lot of entrepreneurs on here in you know a lot of people who start businesses it's their dream to build something up. And sell it. Seems like there's kind of three schools of thought I. Want to went real fast, sell it make much money. It's kind of this own ability to a certain place and then let somebody else you know take it from there and then there's people that you know basically create a job in. After they're. Too, old to work anymore, the business goes away so. I, think you I. I'm GonNa. Suggest you fit in the second category I mean Grey Dot. US was a labor of love though that you built to a certain point. But I'll let you tell me kind of what you're joining was to to actually selling it and what what, what decision process you went through and just kind of maybe gives sold backroom. Sure sure. Yeah and I I think I did end up in that in that second category not necessarily by design greatest was actually that second company I sold. So the first one was called healthcare dot com and it was a you know a SAS that was providing turnkey websites for wellness practices and medical practices and Dab never really got that one off the ground and you know sort of sold out and kind of an Acura higher deal and then. Later started great us which was really more of a growth company because we happen to catch a tiger by its tail with the reviews and reputation thing. And You know from a a bootstrap start with no funding or anything like that we're able to. Grow into a pretty serious player in space over over the course of I guess was starting in two, thousand, thirteen you know. We were acquired in two thousand eighteen. So. You know. In that big picture I kind of look like you know like a serial entrepreneur. But that is. Not necessarily something something I aspired to be an in fact you know. Talking about what I'm doing now, like I view, it really in that third category is like a a lifestyle business right and that's that's a term that's used as like a pejorative term in Silicon Valley but I, you know I think I'm I'm I'm great enough now that that I i WanNa just you know kind of work with customers like do work that I like and do that every day not as thoroughly. Bill Growth Company but you know with with great us we we just got to a point. where I just you know I thought we'd be better served by. By taking on private equity investors and and really you know I. Both our employees, our customers would be would be better served by that outcome I think they were. Did you feel especially at a growth company when people call the growth in the application is you grew professed did you feel like? was there a moment when you said to yourself kind of over my head here? Yes there were many many moments. But Yeah I mean you know I am at heart a software developer right like I like I like tinkering I think I think it's a quality I share with you. Actually I'm an introvert. I. Like you know kind of hunkering down and building things And Yeah So. When All these employees and customers wanted stuff, right? Exactly, it was a nightmare. So so so yeah I definitely. Felt over my head and then. You know with all the competition in the space. Right. The competition was very well funded. We were going up against you know entities that it raised know double-digit millions of dollars and venture capital to go after the same market that we were. We were going after and so you know. I I didn't want us to kind of die off. Obscurity. Should so what did the courting process look like? Did you go out and start having conversations to people start knocking on your door because they wanted to kind of roll up all of the competition into one service? in. In. Our case. People were knocking at our door and the the outfit that that ultimately acquired us Alpine investors are separate called software group. Really. Didn't didn't have a plan for you know kind of going into the industry of marketing technology and but they they They found us through like a third party broker ghitis reached out as interested in the space. And you know at at the time, you know we just started talking just to see what the process would look like. You know we we had had some some other inbound interests that was a little more. You know more aggressive. These guys were just like you know nice people. who had kind of you know interested in space but you know sort of at an arm's length and so yeah, we started talking started kind of educating them about about the space and about art our business model and. You know the the the deal process went went very smoothly because we all kind of saw a common a common goal which was. To. Keep the company as is but but grow it invest in invest in the technology invest in the team and and what ended up happening is You know we became essentially what they call a platform company for. For going into marketing technology and so from there after the great US acquisition, we acquired three direct competitors. Reputation reputation loop and gather up, and then some other a complimentary marketing technology products and company is and kind of roll them together into waiting is a really formidable your marketing technology suite, and it's really it's focused on your agencies and consultants right so that was that was the marketplace that we found. That was the market that we found and that's that's kind of the the market that the company continues to to cater to today.
The Closer (MM #3462)
"The Maison with Kevin Mason my father called the other day just to check in and he asked me a strange question first off. He said have you ever seen the TV show The Closer? It didn't ring a bell with me. It was Acura a quick show that was on like USA or a n e or one of those channels back about eight ten years ago it ran for a bunch of seasons. And the reason he asked one of the episodes had a character named Kevin Mason and he was the bad guy. Of course the episode my dad said, so did you piss me off back in the day your college days, they could come back and write a story make you the bad guy. I'd actually look it up. Luckily the executive producing guy who wrote the episodes were older than me and I never encountered either the writer or the producer. So I was in the clear but had kind of chuckle because only my father would think of something that crazy and only I would be crazy enough to go look it up because you never know as you get up in life and when you've been out about and you've been all around the country who you've encountered and who you've upset, those are kind of Occupational hazards. And when I was younger, I'll be honest with you was I really that in tune to what other people were thinking. No, I was more worried about myself much like most young people are go look it up. Just look up the closer online with Kyra Sedgwick and type in Kevin Mason. You'll find it kind of made me chuckle only my father and yeah only wage.
Plants Engineered to Remove Indoor Air Toxins
"Welcome to the talking biotech podcast. It's Wiki podcast about agriculture and medicine with him emphasis on biotechnology and the good things we can do for people and the planet. My Name's Kevin fulltime professor and. Science. Communicator. Worries about your understanding about science and about some of the major issues which new technologies can play an important role and today we're going to revisit a episode. We did last year, we're speaking with Dr Stewart, Strand from the University of Washington civil and Environmental Engineering Program, and we're going to re-explore his air purifying plants. So there's been some developments over the last year or so that are really important. So welcome back to the PODCAST. Dr Strand. Thank you. Yeah. It's really nice that you're back because this was an intriguing topic to me. And maybe we need to start fresh for listeners. But back in twenty nineteen, you talked about plants that could remove impurities from indoor air. and. Why do you think that this is necessary and is it really a problem? Yes, it really is a problem Our homes are contaminated with gashes. Chemicals such as Benzine and Formaldehyde. ACURA. Lead chloroform is president are indoor air, and these are all either proven or probable human carcinogens. So these are important even at very low levels that they occur in the hall mainly because our most vulnerable populations, children, and older people as well. spend all their time in the home and are exposed to these chemicals continuously. Okay where do they come from? Well busy comes from fuel storage in attached garages. Lawn more fuel gasoline contains a lot of busy and can get out of the tank even with voters car Benzine also comes from outdoors. It also comes from cigarette smoking or any kind of smoking and the home. Sometimes, Campbell's can emit. And It's approved human carcinogen chloroform an interesting one with chlorinated municipal water performance farm from the chlorination process and reactions with trace organic compounds, maybe water and that chloroform which is a probable human carcinogen. Is a mid into the air when you use hot water in the hold like showering or or washing of. Procedures Machines admit chloroform into the air FORMALDEHYDE. A lot of people are familiar with that. It comes out of the glues we used in pressboard carpets and so I'm but it also comes from things like smoking and cooking. In the home too so that at that's hard to avoid. And do you think that our big push to have more energy efficient homes? You know we're we're getting double pane windows and really good insulation around our doors and thresholds that don't leak is this just exacerbated the problem? A yes. It has as well recognized to be a part of the problem of that. Don't have as much Eric's change in a lot of the homes. That we that have been retrofitted with installation. That we should have there should be frequent air exchanges in the home and. Even. Those though will Lee some of these residual gaseous compounds. Okay. So we have this problem of at least some level of. Volatile compounds that are present inside of our indoor air that may be there exceedingly small amounts, but still represent some finite risk and. Now, you have a solution to help clean those out a just with plants that have been specifically engineered to deal with those chemistries. So remind me again about the first invention which was both those eighty what what is that in? How does it work? Well Pathos Ivy. The last name is the criminal Maurya around the trunk as tropical plant. Many people have it in their homes. It's also called Devil's Ivy in some places And it is very common house plant very easy to grow It doesn't flour in the home So it's a less of a bio safety risk in the ecology and. It is a house plant that is rare in the fact that it has been genetically modified.
2 Kings 19 and Psalm 46, 80, 135
"Today, we revisited part of the story. We I read on Day, two. Oh, six including! HAS ACI response to Kingston Aker ABS threats. We're reminded of how humbly he responded when troubles came as way, and since we've read this story before you probably recall that after this when he's been blessed, and has stockpiled fortunes, and he gets to live an extra fifteen years, his heart Arc's away from God, it becomes prideful doubts God's words and live somewhat airless Lii. One of the things we didn't touch on home. I read this story. A few days ago was the part where God puts a spirit and snacker. That will cause him to hear ally. There are a few noteworthy things about that burst. God is in charge of evil spirits there on a leash, and they have to do what he says and go where he commands that comforting second God himself didn't mislead snacker. Scripture tells us repeatedly that God cannot lie. Bruce Sixteen eight says he's incapable of it. It would be contrary to his character because according to John. Fourteen one of his name's is the truth. Is the truth, but God's certainly does use equal for his own purposes when Romans eight twenty eight says he works all things together for the good of those who love him. Evil is included in that list of all things, the good, the bad and the ugly the truth he speaks, and the rumors other speak. So. He allows snacker up to be misled. If you think that might be an unjust response, try to zoom out and remember how sin. Acura of has been Lee bought your way and his leaders tell the people of Judah that they shouldn't let y'all way. Trick them into trusting him. This is a merciful response based on what's inaccurate. Deserves from God. Isaiah also tells has a that they will win this war without even putting gas in their horses, and he's right before a Syria can fire an aero toward Jerusalem God's Army, an army of one shows up and wins, but it isn't really a balanced fight. The Assyrians are way outnumbered by the angel of the Lord who kills one hundred and eighty, five thousand of them and one night, plus he has the home field advantage since he owns the whole earth and whatnot, then eventually, king inaccurate is assassinated just as God promised. Next! We jumped back into the psalms. There were two verses in Psalm, Forty forty-six that stood out to me in light of what we just read. Burst this reference to Jerusalem in verse five stood out. It says God is within her. She shall not be moved. God will help her. When morning dawns, this is certainly what played out over the course of the night. When the angel of the Lord showed up and won the battle for them while they were sleeping when morning dawned, they laid eyes on God's victory. The second verse I loved is the most famous one in this chapter Burston be still and know that I am God. One of the things we've seen repeated as you've been in Isaiah lately. Is this idea of quietness and rest and trust? This stillness fits right in with that, doesn't it? In Psalm Eighty the corporate cry is for God to save them and restore them. In this song Israel knows its identity and echoes it back to the God. Who gave them that identity to begin with? I love this imagery in verses eight nine? It says you brought a vine out of Egypt that vine reference to Israel the people the ones he rescued from Egypt. Then it continues saying you drove out. The nation's and planted it. You cleared the ground for it. This is a reference to Israel the place God drove out the Canaanites and planted them there, and now they've been burned up cut down plucked up and they ask God to restore them and promised to praise him for it. Someone thirty five is where my God showed up today. I really love this psalm. I went through it and circled all the action verbs where God is the subject and here's everything. God does in this chapter. Chose Jacob in Israel. Does whatever He pleases, he makes the clouds rise. It makes lightening brings forth the wind. You struck down. The Egyptians is sent. Signs wonders you struck down many nations. He killed mighty kings, then gave their land to Israel he will vindicate his people. You will have compassion on his servants E, Doyle's in Jerusalem. God does a lot of things here, and as we look back on all of them. We see his hand to bless his people. To restore and redeem the very ones who have repeatedly gone astray from him. and. He doesn't do it begrudgingly. He does it willingly joyfully. You know we know that because I six says he does whatever He pleases. It pleases God to adopt centers into his family, and call them sons and daughters. It demonstrates his great art bore redemption. You will vindicate his people. He will have compassion on his servants. It leases him. Wow, ease where the joy
Media Surprised by Tesla Registrations Despite Shutdown
"Everybody robbing our here today we were talking about a number of different reports on tests registrations in the united. States in the month of April and May tussle stock, despite some of these reports finished the day up one percent to nine hundred ninety one dollars, seventy nine cents that compared to the Nasdaq up zero point two percent all right so as much as I would love to skip this topic because I think a lot of us know where this is. Is Heading. Most of the Tesla headlines today are related to a Wall Street Journal article published this morning titled Quote Tessa Registrations Plunge in California data tracker, says and quote, then leading off the article with quote, registrations of newly purchased Tesla vehicles plunged critical California market over the past two months according to new data underlining the challenge chief executive Elon, Musk faces to keep investor enthusiasm that has helped propel the company's share price and quote the Wall Street Journal Journal cites data from Dominion Enterprises which apparently tracks registrations in twenty four states that make up about sixty five percents of the US market, and in those twenty four states they say that Tesla registrations declined thirty three percent to fourteen, thousand, one, hundred and fifty one vehicles during the first two months off cue to the media, then seemed to go full, shocked Pika Chew Mon and read a whole bunch of articles about this highlighting Tesla's quote, unquote plunging registrations so. So I thought had a little bit of fun with that with the today. Apologies for that, but the point here is that this should not be surprising at all. People seem to have forgotten that Tesla. Had Their factory shut down for seven weeks from late March to early May as we know. Tesla is somewhat unique in that their registration or sales, information correlates strongly to their production rather than simply being an indication of demand like we might see from. Cars we can easily see this in the inventory numbers. If we look at Tesla, they had twenty days of inventory at the end of Q. on of March that comes right from their shareholder letter, and if we look at a company like Ford, for example, they said that at the march they had one hundred days of inventory so twenty days of inventory doesn't get. Get you too far when you're factories, shut down for fifty days compared to if you had one hundred days of inventory in stock like four does according to Cox Automotive, many brands actually had more than one hundred days of inventory at the end of March including Honda, jeep, Cadillac, an Acura and many others, and then even on the low end. They have KIA as. As the lowest brand at forty three days, so Tesla's inventory is about twenty to twenty five percent of the average and half of that of the lowest other brand in the US. The other important consideration here when we look at April and May specifically for the United States is that because Tesla restarted production in early, may that only gave them a couple or A. A few weeks to be able to produce vehicles ship them over to Europe and have them delivered within Q. Two, so with that being the case, obviously a very small amount of vehicles produced in May are going to actually be allocated for the North American market, so yeah plenty of reasons for us to expect registrations to have been down year over year in April. April and May in the US definitely not shocked Pichu type of situation, even with all that being the case in the same article, The Wall Street Journal says that Dominion Research says that the industry fell forty three percent in April and may remember. They have tussled down thirty three percent, so even without much inventory, Tesla is still outperforming the broader industry. You actually interpret. Interpret this as relatively bullish report. The other thing that I want to talk about briefly is the actual number here. So they said that registrations were fourteen thousand, or so in the first two months of the quarter and remember that's four states that make up about sixty five percents of the total US auto market. Tesla probably penetrates a little bit higher in those markets. Markets, because it does include California, so if we assume that that's about seventy five percent, then that can point to a number of about eighteen thousand five hundred vehicles registered in the United States in April, and met now I'm not putting much weight into these numbers, but that number does seem extremely reasonable. We know that Tesla began the quarter with about thirty thousand vehicles. Vehicles in inventory, so if we assume about half of that inventory, or about fifteen thousand vehicles were in the United States at the end of March then for us to have eighteen thousand vehicles registered in the US in April, and may sounds like a pretty reasonable number, if tussle were to sell off some of that inventory mentor, and then we add in deliveries from. That are probably not entirely allocated for Europe as well as Mata. Why if anything I see this report? As a low weight indicator that things are roughly on track. One less thing. I wanted to point out on this. The street did run article separate from my page on this topic and I didn't really love the headline. They reach out me, gave me the opportunity to add some context, and then actually included all of my comments in the article on this

At the media the at road Atlanta decade ago they're out there with that Z but Trying to think then what year my Dotson would have been built. Probably later than sixty nine. Maybe seventy eight even seventy one. I think the five tenths I think. They started with the roadsters. They went to the disease. And then the five tenths. I think the five tenths could've been last for some weird reason but anyway That car which is A very car but at but privateer colors in yellow and white which is which is interesting. I Dunno Max Pat. If you've found any you'll berry it's fine. It's hard to find pictures carpet. There's pictures of it out. There p came over Pete Brock. Stop by for something at one point and I think you were recording another show at the time so I was just walking around and saying hello and and he signed the the brand new three seventy Z and. He asked which five ten that I was reminding him. It's like this was. The yellow was the privateer car and and he remembered started. He started coming back with maximum. Patta show in a Sarong picture. 'cause that's a car that five ten and he was remembering he. He was telling me how much he really liked that car. He liked it because it was a privateer car. He liked that they were doing something special with the car and he did like the you know doing helping out with the yellow paint scheme and all that so he had some pretty fond memories about it and he. He was so glad to see that you had that. I don't know why he he must have. I'm sure he's got a lot more to say about it but he was. He said to me like three times. He's like so. I'm so glad you guys have this one because I really like this car. The yellow car. Well good guy and I think he told me or maybe told you and you told me. But he said that They'd worked out a lot of stuff in the earlier. Carson in this car was sorta the recipient of what they had learned. Yeah doing the other cars and he did that on the the Shelby Daytona as well he talked about the first Daytona and the last one or really kind of different right each got progressively better so taking that that engineering evolution. Yeah you're right. I think I think this five ten the yellow five time would have been arguably the best of the bunch a switching gears. The ACURA T. L. Elax announced today. Yeah what is the the t? Elax we saw the concept car. It was the Blue Sedan at the ACURA party. Monterey last Monterey During the car week we went to the event and they debuted what they said was the type S. So the T. Elax is the new Four door sedan. And it's gorgeous and they said it's going to be the best handling Acura ever made which is interesting or at least the best sedan. I we all wheel drive. I don't know that is all wheel drive by so the base model will be a four cylinder with two hundred seventy two horsepower. That's sixty six horsepower. More than last year's dialects the previous body style But they're gonNA come out with front wheel. Drive is standard. But the type S all-wheel drive is optional on the on the type pass okay. It'll be a turbocharged three liter v. six that's GonNa make three hundred and fifty horsepower Pretty good pretty good numbers. Yeah that's before you breathe on it. What's the sticker? I don't know what the prices are a yet. Maybe Chris can. It is wheel. Drive ten speed automatic. The wheel drive type is all wheel drive. Lx regular is all wheel drive. Yeah that makes that makes more sense for sure. But it's it's a good looking car. The the concept was really pretty and the production version is not bad. Obviously the concept had like no door handles mirrors on it. You know things that Kinda bust up the lines but they did a pretty good job on this car. So it'll be exciting to you. Know get our hands on one of those at some point in and take it for a ride as far as it's an important car for their mark right. This is a successful sedan for them and sized up you know in in a way that that makes a Lotta Sense. It's kind of a mid size sedan and doing the performance version. I think is exciting for them. Who's their competition? Or what vehicles how infinity would be I would say on some level maybe genesis at this point. Maybe a little bit of BMW. Audi as well I mean I I would say Acura is considered a luxury brand to compete with BMW and Audi But not necessarily as expensive Right so I would say look at the mid size sedans from the from the Germans That'd be the competition. The pricing was around thirty five thousand but they are not revealing the type S. That's just for the regular ex. Yeah trying to think of how you find pictures of that Yellow Berry car. They're ball hall one now. I don't want the buy because that's not the problem is is. I think it's out there.

Trapped In Wuhan During COVID-19 | Jen Knight
"Gen nine says that she won the in laws lottery when it comes to Chinese husband's parents but luck wasn't on our side this past January when a day after she arrived in her husband's hometown just outside of Wuhan for a Spring Festival celebration. The Chinese Government started shutting down all transit lakes into and out of the area effectively trapping her at ground. Zero of what would soon come to be known as the covert Nineteen Corona virus outbreak. She was as she easily admits terrified and filled isolated but what helped her feel less alone was participating in a study. That has china-based ex. Pats how they were feeling during the crisis and through two months of lockdown and plus two weeks of self isolation in an apartment in Shenzhen. Her notions of home have shifted. Or maybe she was just being made aware of a ship. That had already taken place. This is a really great conversation. And I'm thankful we were able to get this glimpse of what life was like for Ex pats in China as the global pandemic first emerged. I hope that you learn as much from her story is ided. Please sit back relax. Enjoy my conversation with JEN night. Gen night welcome to migratory patterns. Thank you so much for having me. Where is home so and I thought about how to answer this question. I came up with three answers. Three different places. One would be the place where I you know grew up and was raised which would be suburbia midwestern suburbia so a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin and a second place. That is home. Would Be San Francisco Bay area where I lived for eight years before I moved abroad and where my family is now. Located is in the North Bay and then the third place that I came up with it feels like home would be where I am right now. Which is my apartment in Shenzhen China? Where my husband is and my apartment is and jobs and life. I think in the first person with three answers. Oh really pretty sure. It's always interesting. Everyone's unique and I love how people will somehow work in where they're from originally some people you know there are few who like where I am now and all that stuff but I think the first TRIFECTA. I think if you'd asked me a few years ago it would have been just too but as I've gotten a little bit older I felt more strongly connected to my roots in a way and so I really wanted to add that third one in about where I came from because I think it's so important It's something that I wanted to leave behind when I left there at the age of eighteen nineteen. I was like goodbye. I Never WanNa see you again suburban Midwest. So let's talk about that so so suburban Midwest. Where exactly was that so it was in? It's a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin Like on the north side of town and it was it was a nice place to grow up and I've gone back a few times over the years. My family doesn't live there anymore. So the only real pull. I have our friends and people. I know who still live there but I found the last time that I returned which would have been seven years ago I think about. I felt I really felt the sense of home. It was so interesting so when you ask that question. That immediately came to my mind. That's interesting so you said you were looking to get out of there at eighteen. What was that all about? Was that Just sick of suburbia type thing? It's kind of an archetype in in the US. Yeah I was. I was always ready to get out from a pretty young age and my friend and I we just pointed at a map and there was Seattle and we had one friend who lived there who said we could sleep on his floor and we sold all of our stuff and bought backpacks and took the train for three days to Seattle the train. That's awesome. I love the train still was school. You were going to college or you just get out and I was just getting out. Although I ended up studying my undergraduate was in Washington state so I did live there for a number of years but interestingly it never felt like home so that is interesting so After so how did you get from? Let's say Seattle because that's kind of where you can set off on your journey. How did you get from Seattle to where you are now? What was that like? Well I my family had relocated to the San Francisco Bay area and I visited there one time before and felt really like a strong Paul to San Francisco and I went through some personal problems in While I was living in Seattle and I ended up packing up and moving and decided to relocate there and I just loved it I mean I had an amazing eight years living in San Francisco and I remember driving my used Acura over the Golden Gate Bridge like crammed with all of my stuff and I really felt that sense like this is going to be my home for awhile. Kinda cool this kind of cool so then you went to San Francisco. So what motivated jumped from San Francisco to overseas? That'd be fair. I Guess San Francisco can kind of feel like overseas from suburban Milwaukee. Well yeah so I made the first jump to Seattle and then from Seattle to San Francisco and I think San Francisco for me. I feel like I just had done it. I don't know how else to explain it. I just felt like I was John. Like I had done everything that I needed to do. There I had an amazing time. I met amazing people. I had incredible experiences. It's a beautiful place to live. There's so much to do. There was such a buzz. You know the entrepreneurial seen everything there when I was living there but I did feel like my time there was complete and I felt really unsure about what to do next and I ended up going to New York for a while and I went back to the Midwest for a while and I was really torn about my next move and sort of out of nowhere. The opportunity to teach in Shanghai came up and they said we have this job for you. You have two weeks to get here and I just went for it. What was the job? It was teaching in a school there but it was kind of a startup situation where I would be helping them. Start an American program within a Chinese school so it was a lot of curriculum development and teaching As well as some other like Adleman kind of stuff. It's a great way and so did you study to be a teacher when you're teaching in the US before you left. Yeah I had a California teaching credential and I got my master's from San Francisco State University so when I moved to San Francisco that was. That was the reason why was for a job that I got in Oakland Public Schools. So my background is very heavily in education is a teacher and I know what you guys do. So good on you for that work. Is You know you? Kinda got out at San Francisco. Probably right at the right time. It's just San Francisco to me. I've been there several times over the last few years last several years and San Francisco from to me feels like that really cool band. That sounded awesome but then sold out immediately and not quite as cool anymore. I love that analogy. Yes I could not agree more so so you hit China and did you say was shot high. Yeah Shanghai is where I lived I so for four years. Wow you've been bouncing all over the place where you did you. Did you go to Thailand for Awhile? Yes so after we were in Shanghai Shanghai four years we lived poop hat Thailand for two years and then we just moved back to China. Shenzhen last August. Well what great timing I actually right now. I'm pretty happy to be in Shenzhen overall right now I mean you know. Obviously we're this is the time of the time of Corona virus right now and it China. Ironically when the outbreak I happened so many people were streaming out of the country. And now there's tons of people who would love to be able to go back because they got a handle on it I it's Conan and argue at the methods but They've worked yes. Yes and I was at the epicenter of all of that so I I rode the roller coaster.
Why Do Cars Have Alarms If We Ignore Them?
"Mark lives in Chicago and loved his nineteen ninety nine. Honda Civic hatchback. Thieves loved it too apparently late nineties. Civic is worth far more than its blue book value in parts alone. Multiple people have pulled up next to him at stop lights and offered to buy a hatchback on the spot. Maybe should've taken them up on the offer. The first time his civic was stolen the cops quickly recovered it a few blocks away. The second time mark wasn't so lucky. He went out to search for the car himself and founded about a mile from his apartment under an overpass stripped of its engine and missing the entire front paneling. Now mark takes the train mark. Civic didn't have a car alarm because like most of us he assumed that alarm where waste of money if you live in a big city falsely triggered car alarms ours communist pigeons and just as annoying blaring car alarm in. Chicago barely raises an eyebrow. There's even a name for it alarm fatigue but does our collective disdain for car. Alarms mean that they aren't effective. We spoke with Christmas. Goey security consultant of thirty three years and host of the podcast crime school. He admits that we all have alarm fatigue to some degree but thinks that alarms still have their place. He said car thieves will tell you. They don't like the noise. They don't like the attention that it draws but it depends on the quality of the car thief. If it's just an amateur car thief the alarm goes off. They're gone to that extent. They work professional car thieves on the other hand. Don't even worry about alarms. Mcgowan says the pros can either disable the alarm quickly or use a number of tactics including dummies keys and tow trucks to circumvent the alarm system altogether. According to Interpol the international law enforcement organization car-thefts worldwide can be divided into two distinct categories widely available older cars. That's quantity and higher end and luxury cars. That's quality marks ninety nine civic fits squarely in the quantity category the type of car. That's irresistible to young street level car. Thieves parts for older widely available. Cars are in high demand plus most cars built before the year. Two thousand can still be hot wired. Mcgaughey said the old cars are a piece of cake. Modern cars all the keys have a chip built into them. That chip has to be married up to the ignition. You can't go in there and break off the steering wheel column like you would in the old days. The CAR WON'T START IF LOW LEVEL CAR. Thieves are more likely to be spooked by car alarms. Then it's worth figuring out if your car is attractive to low level car thieves. I check if your car is one of the ten most stolen in America. That's a sure. Sign your quantity category according to low Jacks Two thousand sixteen vehicle theft recovery report. The most stolen makes models are behind a civic and accord Toyota Camry and Corolla the Chevy Tahoe and Silverado the Nissan Ultima Cadillac Escalade Ford F to fifty and the ACURA INTEGRA. Again older model years are the easiest to swipe and have the highest demand for parts. Mugabe's rule of thumb is quote. Look at the most popular cars today. They'll be the most stolen cars in the country ten years from now another hugely important factor is where you live according to statistics from the FBI and the National Insurance Crime Bureau. Big cities routinely have the highest total number of car thefts. But that's because there are lots of cars in big cities a more useful. Statistic is car thefts per capita in that category. California is king. California is home to eight of the ten metropolitan areas with the most cars stolen per person in Twenty fifteen Los Angeles held the title for the most car stolen nationwide fifty two thousand five hundred fifty nine but these smaller central valley cities of Modesto Bakersfield and Salinas had far greater rates per capita. Another perhaps expected capital of car. Theft is Albuquerque New Mexico number two in the country for stolen cars per resident. There might be a simple explanation for this geographical clustering of theft rates. According to a twenty twelve reports from the Department of Justice. One third of all cars stolen in the US were stolen from four states. California Arizona New Mexico and Texas. That's because there's a lucrative trade in stolen cars and parts directly into Mexico. Although the smuggling rings are operated by large criminal organizations the report concluded that the cars themselves are mostly stolen by juveniles. So if you drive a popular car that's more than decade old and you live within a few hours drive of the border. It's probably worth investing in a highly visible alarm system. The flashy decals alone might be enough to deter thief scanning the aisles in the mall parking lot but if a car alarm does go off near you you shouldn't go investigate unless you're Blah enforcement or security personnel. It's their job to investigate. Alarms not bystanders.

Don't know what the towing capacity is on it, Matt. But what I do know is that they rated at twenty seven miles to the gallon out on the hall on the highway, and I bet it gets every bit of that because it.

And those that last row folds down and I had a lot of stuff to hall had camera gear at luggage. Volts flat, and it folds flat. You don't have to take it out? No, you do not. And then if you wanna hall, I mean really wanna hall something. There's a little buttons on the other side and the second row seats fulled completely flat without taking them out and you have a big, huge car area. So and it has a little false floor in the back. So which was nice because like my camera gear when I went places and your aid. Yeah, exactly. Man. No, all of that could be hidden away and we were. We were good to go.
