"Brought it in and I said that the brakes were making a just a little noise and they have a check. So they put on the front brake pads and they replaced the front, they resurfaced the rotors. Well, now it seems like it takes longer to stop. It doesn't seem I step on the brake and it doesn't do what it used to do. I have to step on the brake harder. Yeah. I know the feeling. I get that every time I drive my brother's car. Which doesn't have any brakes. And what they did was they it'll improve over time. I don't know how long you have had it. Since they did the repair. But it'll improve in time because your right leg will get stronger and stronger. No, it'll improve because the pads will actually mate to the new surface. And the reason it happens on newer cars and it didn't happen on older cars was imagine this. Imagine a perfectly flat surface, which is the disk, and it's being contacted by another perfectly flat surface, which is the pad. You'll get maximum friction, which is what slows the car down. However, when the machine the disk, they cut it on a lathe and it actually winds up looking if you looked at it under a microscope, it would look like a record. So you have a whole bunch of grooves. So now you have that pad touching, but it's not touching the whole disk anymore. It's really touching all these high spots. Did they replace the pads too? Yes, I did. I think they did. She said that. She's from New Britain, Connecticut, you know? Who is this? So and the reason that it doesn't mate so quickly is that the pads are a much harder material than they used to be made out of. You do not have organic or asbestos pads and this you have metallic pads. Right. So they have to wear in, so to speak. It's like if you had a meatball sandwich pushed up against the record, you'd have to wait a few minutes until the grooves of the record made an indentation on the meatball sandwich. It would make corresponding grooves on the brake pad. The correct thing to do if it bothers you is to have them replace the discs. Because the new discs would have a perfectly flat surface. And most of the time when we do this in the garage, we replace the discs. Because we've discovered that unless you do a really great cut on the lathe with the discs, you don't get proper braking. And people complain about it. Right. But it will get better. That's the good part. It will get better within weeks. She's had it for weeks. How long how many weeks have you had it? Since the break for done, it's been about a month. Yeah, well, you don't use the brakes enough. The truth is, if you ride around, go to the go to the lumber supply, where they call that place. One yard lumber yard, there you go. And buy a cement block. It is. Whether you're using the brakes and I just let that rest right on the pedal. And that will. When they start smoking, take it off. No, but seriously, you could ride the brake a little bit for a few days and it would burn them in a little faster. If they haven't gotten to the point where you feel safe with the car, go back and have them replace the disks. Okay. Because there's something wrong and you should feel that the car is stopping well. And we've had situations where we've put metallic pads in and machine the disks and we've had them be unsatisfactory. So you need to do it because you won't feel safe in the car. So the story is I should eat more meatball sandwiches and the problem with gold. And play your record player. I was thinking the other day, what happens when you want to play a record? I mean, they don't have records anymore. I have records. Are they still going to be making record players? You brought up the issue of records. I'm just took streaming of consciousness here. Yes. Consciousness. They still make record players. They do, huh? Yes. But not many, right? Well, I know my old Victor is still working all right. I don't know. Beth, thanks for your call. Thank you very much. All right, bye bye. Well, another hour of card talk is come to an end. My God. It seems like just yesterday we started this. Our estimable producer is Doug Berman.

"Cars and Kyrie paired. What is a good time in the 200 meter macpherson strategy? I don't know. I mean, what is your personal best, as we say? Well, I can't divulge it. I'm still in training. I don't think we should divulge it. I mean, I think it should be new for everybody. I mean, these are all new and wonderful events. Right, but I understand something on the 15 minutes is a real quick. It's really pretty awkward. I think that's good, yeah. Anyway, we have a new puzzler. Yeah. Do you have one? Yes, I do have a puzzler and this is the time in the show when you make up some kind of phony puzzler. Right, okay. And not to deviate from tradition, I will do that again. Yeah. You remember, this is gonna be difficult for you because I know you're do I remember crusty? You bet I do. Help crusty. Of course. I'll be back to crusty. We up back to crusty just for a short visit. Didn't take you on. Well, I think the reason I wanted to use crusty again was I figured you would probably be fresh in people's minds. You remember. You may remember. That old crusty had this technique of starting cars that were flooded, and that was basically pulling the spark plug wires off to the point that there was a large air gap between the end of the plug wire in the spark plug so that they had to jump this big, high, the spark had to jump this big gap of high resistance. Right, and a few weeks ago, we had a puzzler about how come this works. And my brother gave some lame brain answer. I don't know if it was right or not. Something about the answer that you gave me. I don't like it. Something about the largest, the highest voltage appears across the highest resistance, it's true, as I guess there was some truth to that. I didn't particularly like it. Now, what are you going to do with this? What's it now? This question rather. Well, after I explained it to our friend Stanley, yes. We expected to get the answer from. He's hopeless. He said, well, if that's the case, why wouldn't you want the hottest spark all the time? Why wouldn't you leave the wires dangling like this? For sure. That's a good question. That would be kind of lousy because they might fall off. He said, well, how about? Welding them on. Then you wouldn't have the air gap. How about if you just made the spark plug gap bigger? Sure. So if you had a card, an old jalopy, like a 63 diet, who sparked blood gap was supposed to be 34,000. 32. 32, 35. 32 to 35. If you were supposed to have it at 35,000, what if you increased it to like 90,000? Sure, why not? Right? Then if the highest voltage appears across then, then you'd be able to take advantage of the CP, the crusty phenomenon. You'd be able to take advantage of the CP. That's right, and you would have a real spark in there, boy. And your car would start all the time, rain real shine, flooding, not flooding, and you'd get obviously improved combustion because you'd have this more intense work. I mean, if your goal is to burn up the fuel. Then the more fire, the better. That one could be better than having the more intense spark. Yeah, that's a good question. So the crusty phenomenon could in fact be extended to the Stanley phenomenon. Right. So why? The Stanley version of the crusty song. So why don't we see Pete? So why don't we have the truth is we currently have spark plug gaps on modern cars that are big and we'll get that'll be yet another puzzler, but why couldn't Tommy on his 63 dart if he could get the spark plugs out? Why couldn't you? Double the spark plug gap to say 70 or 80 thousandths of an inch and benefit from the crusty phenomenon. If you think you know the answer to this one, the Stanley version SV CP, the Stanley version of the crusty phenomenon. Okay, if you think of all the answers to the Stanley version of the crusty phenomenon, send it to us at puzzler tower, car talk Plaza, 6 30 Commonwealth avenue, Boston, our fair city, mass zero two two one 5. Did you mention the back of a $20 bill? No, I didn't. I think people have gotten messages. I'm using subliminal. Oh, okay. Yes, I didn't have to mention it. I had mentioned that subliminally if you had been listening, you would have noticed. One 803 three two 9 two 8 7. Hello, you're on car talk. Hi, I'm Beth from New Britain, Connecticut. Hi, Beth, how are you? I'm doing fine today. How are you? Good. What's up? Well, I won a year and a half ago. I won the Chevy cavalier. No kidding. Yeah. I didn't think anyone won those contests. No one I know was ever one. And are you sorry that there was that the worst day of your life? Is that what you're calling to say? Got it off. It was a very interesting day. Are you kidding? Actually, I had had a foreign car up until then and it's the first brand new car I ever had and it was a native car. So it's been interesting. How did you actually win the car? I bought a $1 raffle ticket from my girlfriend's church. No kidding. I'm kidding. Isn't it? Someone has to win. I won the taxes. I'll tell you this much. Oh yeah, you have to pay the taxes on it. Right, right. So you paid the taxes and now this is your first ever American car as well as maybe your first ever new car. That's right. Having a good time. That's good. Good for you. I haven't had any problems with it at all. It's been a lot of fun. Until today. And this is just a little question. About 25,000 miles I brought it in and I said that the brakes were making a just a little noise and they have a check. So they put on the front brake pads and they replaced the front, they resurfaced the rotors. Well, now it seems like it takes longer to stop. It doesn't seem I step on the brake and it doesn't do what it used to do. I have to step on the brake harder..

"The engine proceeded to blow. Wait a minute. What are you doing? What are you driving to? Michigan? You flooded the cylinders and you hydro locked and you bent all your connecting rods like no kidding. Wow. Is this the first one of these that they had ever seen? No. No. Okay, and it must be because the air, if I'm not mistaken, the air scoop on this thing is down on the right front fender, right? Correct. Yeah. And the puddle was that big. Then it pulled that air in, no kidding. That water. I pull the water in with the air into it. Then you should have puddle annoyer. Puddle of phobia. Jeez. Well, you know, it's an interesting fear it causes you to like slam on your brakes rapidly during rainstorms. Sure. Did they give you a new engine? No as a matter of fact, they did not. What they did is they replaced it with a short block. Which is just a lower half eye. Right, and they saved the cylinder head, but they didn't charge you for this. Well, as a matter of fact, they were going to charge me. It wasn't covered under my warranty, and then I talked to my insurance agent who informed me that it was water damage. What an interesting little twist. Water damage. Yeah. So your insurance actually paid for it. Correct. You think they're going to pay for it again? I don't know. That's why I have this pudina. Jeez. Well, this is the first, how deep was the puddle? How deep was the puddle? The puddle was between 6 and 8 inches. Oh, that's a pretty serious puddle. And how fast were you going? 80. Approximately 25 to 30 miles an hour. And you just hit the puddle at 25 miles an hour. Yes. And it just sucked up all that water. Well, I kind of understand that. Well, I guess the problem is how would one know how deep a puddle is just seeing it as you're driving along? Well, what I would try to do is I would try to reconstruct the air scoop on this thing somehow. I don't know how you're going to do it. Would you mind having like a hole cut in the hood? No, you wouldn't mind that. Admittedly, there's not much room under the hood. And that's, in fact, why the scoop is where it is. But there ought to be some way that you could change that or somebody could change it. And if this is not the first one of these that they've had in there, my guess is that there are going to be a lot more and they're going to come up with some kind of a service bullet knot. I don't think it's Marx responsibility to correct a basic design flaw. That's right. It isn't your response. What should he have to worry about? I think you're fine. Forget about having, why do we buy insurance? We buy insurance only to give us peace of mind, right? So if your insurance is not giving you peace of mind, then dump them. So this is really not a car problem, but biological problems. The problem is with the design of the car. Sure, it was definitely a flawed design here. Yeah, I mean, this doesn't happen to most cars. I mean, I suppose they could claim that you drove into a monstrous puddle. I mean, a 6 inch puddle is a pretty big puddle, but by the same token you could say, well, how was I supposed to know how deep the puddle is. I was driving on a perfectly valid road. So I think you have a strong case. I would say forget about it. Get another short block next time. And if the insurance company doesn't like paying for the second one, then the insurance company can take it up with Acura. All right, but it shouldn't be your concern. I would not worry about it, Mark. You're more important. Yeah. How did I know that was happening? Yeah, forget about it. Don't let this trouble you, my son. Okay. I would just, this is you can't drive around in an Integra and be happy if you're worried about a damn puddle every time it was the car does sit close to the ground and the scoop is close to the ground and it rains a lot in Michigan. No. So you gotta move. The chances of it happening again probably not more than 25%. In the words of crocodile Dundee, none of my business. So my business mate. Good luck..

"Podcast from NPR, stories about the helpers. People who reached out a hand, even when they didn't have to. Most people see people in a time of need and they do look away. So I was just wondering, what made you talk to me? 'cause it made my day a lot better. Listen to our new season, it's out now. Hey, do you remember last week's puzzler? Of course I do. Okay, what was it? I have no idea. Some years ago, we had a mechanical work for us at all crusty guys. I think it's crusty. This is crusty, but crusty lives on. And crusty may yet. There are more stories to be told about Christmas. Yes, there may yet be stories about crusty. Some old crusty old stories. What was his first name? Phil crusting? I think so, yeah, Fred. Actually, a few weeks ago, this is the puzzler. One of the guys that I shop was replacing a head gasket on some Kai, I don't remember it was, I believe it was a Ford escort or something like that. And head gaskets are thin gaskets that may not have some kind of material usually known as what. Gas material. Very good. And the gasket goes between the cylinder head and the block. It's a flat piece of what otherwise would be some compound that's like paper, kitty litter, I don't know what they put in it as best as another strange compound. Anyway, it's easy to install them incorrectly and for obvious reasons. I remember this now. They put a little note on the thing that says top TOP. It's not a note, actually. It's letters. It's printed. It's printed. That's printed. It is printed right on the gasket. Right. T, oh P and I just follow us putting the thing on, and I remember walking by and saying something like, boy, that's a useless piece of information, isn't it? Was it Pete? And what did he say? What did I? What did I mean by that? What did you mean by that? Because he asked me the same question. He said, what do you mean by that? What do you mean by that? And I said, what do you mean? What do I mean by? And what I meant by that was are you going to give us the answer now? This is the next few seconds. This qualifies qualifies as the answer. This is the answer. This is the preamble to the answer. Preamble to the pre answer to the answer to the puzzle. The answer. A better piece of information would have been bottom. Oh, this is so clever. Just like boxes, they say, this side up, and it's printed on the top. Well, so what? As you see, with the lettering top, you'll have a 50 50 chance of putting it on and wrong. If you just took it out and didn't look at it, or didn't know enough to look. You're easily put the top down. And then you wouldn't even know that it would have convertible. On the other side. And you wouldn't know that it said top, but if it says bottom and you happen to put bottom down, then you have put it on by accident. Yeah, correctly. Is this a similar to the open other end? You got it. Information. Right. Not this end up, but other end up. Other end up, or even when you open up the little containers of all the shape up gasket makers, don't put top on the thing on this side, I put other side up, but remember to put it on the other side. That does mean. Do we have a winner? The puzzle winner is Stephen week's who's a dentist. Is that what DDS means? I think it's a dentist? Yes. Doctor of dental surgery. More than a dentist. More than a dentist, a dental surgeon. Right. Yes. And you got nothing better to do than listen to stupid children. We're a Stephen from. Steven is from round Lake Illinois. And he went a prize for his participation. And for being selected as the winner of this week's puzzler. Stephen, doctor, Steven weeks, will receive in the mail someday, in a plain brown wrapper, an autographed copy of our mediocre book entitled car talk. There you go. Speaking of our mediocre book card talk, I was reading get this now. You may remember me. He said us a little note, by the way, which I'm sure you didn't read because you would have read it otherwise. This does not increase the theory that you read everything. I didn't. I didn't even see it. He said. What people give me, I read. What's the note? He says, here, see? By the way, my colleagues and I like your show. But usually tape it so we can listen to it later. It makes our patients really nervous if they think we're paying more attention to the heap. And the question, then where the drill is going. Oh, see? I didn't know that. I didn't read that. No. No, we have a new puzzle coming up, so make sure you stay tuned for that. However, let's go to the phones. One 803 three two 9 two 8 7 hello, you're on car talk. My name is Mark kreisler. Hi, Mark. Mark a Chrysler? Chrysler. That's what he said..

"They keep releasing more and more information about the car, right? They do these kind of like town hall, sit down meetings with the engineers and, you know, you can have a half a day conversation just on the engine and they're telling this story about how they bought the Ferrari four 5 8, which is the naturally aspirated V8 flat plane crank and I believe they bought like a smashed one in Europe for 28,000 bucks, which is a great idea. Just so they can come back and just take that engine apart and say, well, what's Ferrari doing it? How do we want to do it differently? Because the flat plane crank engines, they sound great, different firing order, high RPM, lighter weight crank, but a lot of vibration and what does everybody doing to quell the vibrations? What is Ferrari doing? Ford had to do a lot on the GT3 50 and the three 50 R so GM had to figure out how to tackle all of that as well. We can get into all the specs on this stuff at a later date. Everybody's reading about it and what are they doing to reheat management and titanium valves on the intake and sodium filled valves on the exhaust and change in the shape of the intake manifold by putting basically there's butterflies almost like throttle bodies in the intake manifold to shift the torque range. So on this naturally aspirated engine, how do you get low end torque and then power on the top end, right? So there's a lot of really, really cool things happening with the engine. I think there's titanium rods and some pretty cool stuff, but how do they end up getting 670 horsepower and 480 pound feet of torque and doing it at a crazy RPM. Lot in the racing, the C 8 R race car, a lot of that development came out. I think they started on this engine in 2014. They started thinking about this engine and putting it in place. Anyway, it was just kind of a neat thing. And then how is it going to perform in a car? Performing a car that's going to pull 1.22 gs. Dry sump oiling, plenty of cooling. Remember the previous Z06 in the C 7 had a lot of cooling issues. People were taking them out and tracking the car and coming back and going, yeah, it's dropping off performance. It's getting too hot. It's not it can't be out of the track that long, Chevy's a lot of lesson learned. We are going after it. As a matter of fact, they put so much testing, track testing into this thing to making sure it doesn't overheat in the cooling sufficient. In addition to that, they've completely rethought the air conditioning system to develop an air conditioning system that you can run the car on the track all day with the air on and they tested it in a 100° weather in the desert. And they said, what would attract a 100° track day be if you were out there all day with the air on? And Chevy is saying, we are confident you can take this thing to Phoenix or Nevada or even California and do your track days and run the air on the whole time and then drive that thing home. That's kind of impressive. They actually said it's not the same air conditioning system. It may be impressive, but how many drivers are you going to sacrifice one to two or even 5 horsepower? Yeah. But having the comfort air and wanting to get in front of the guy next to him, who's got the air crank, and he's like, okay, I'll turn it off and then I'll be able to get in front of him because it's a performance. Yeah, I mean, maybe you could use it as like a nitrous button. As you're hitting that straight away on you turn the air off, you see that car start shooting down. But then the guy's dying in this seat. Well, if you also think about all of the cool driving schools and driving experiences like speed Vegas, they get the Corvettes and stuff out there in the Ferraris and the GT 500s. When you're out there with the instructor. Yeah, roll up the windows, turn the air on and have a conversation, learn how to drive. I'd much rather roll up the windows and have people learn how to drive, then roll down the window and go off the track. No question. So before we get off, I got a car question for you for the viewers and the listeners, right? So you know I'm building this 2019 Gladiator concept vehicle out of the 68 M 7 one 5 willies. Yeah. So the question that I have right now is do I go a thousand horsepower hellcat derived motor or do I go turbo diesel Cummins? Okay, well, my first question would be on the thousand horsepower hellcat, do you have already or access to a elephant engine or would it be a hellcat that you guys do your package? It's a demon derived. I only asked because the elephant was limited and has like a production number and so a limited number to it. So I would say for exclusivity, if you had a health event, that's cool. Without the elephant. I'm just talking about performance and coolness. Yeah. I mean, there's pluses and minuses for each. And I'm just curious to see what people think, because I think I've never had a diesel. I've never had one tuned up to where these things can be tuned up to. And I know, like I said, there's plus as a minuses. But this may be the perfect vehicle to put one of those 6, 7 Cummins in out of a ram and juice it up a little bit as opposed to doing the normal hellcat build. So grown out there. You know, I would say my opinion, my thought on it would be, you have a plethora of hello cat engines in vehicles all around. And in various vehicles, from the challengers, the Chargers, the TRX, various horsepower levels. So it's easy to go out any morning and pick a vehicle and enjoy that engine. So maybe do something a little different. I would say, though, is you've got to do it clean. No more rolling cold. Paper everyone's going to jail for that shit now. You can't even post diesel brothers can't put up a video because none of that. It can't go clean with it. I'm not even sure. That's it. Do it smart, do it the right way and I think the diesel engine would be interesting. Look at the very least, it'll be something that you don't have. True. Serious performance out of it. And I know it's obviously going to be heavier. I know the torque is going to be there for days, and I know that I can, you know, spice it up with a tune with various tunes. And other options. But, you know, and I think that's I truly believe that's the vehicle it should be. You know, if I have anything like that, it's got to be in that. And all I gotta do truthfully is just take a drive train for an existing ram that's pushing that 6, 7. And it makes it a lot easier also..

"But. It's heart, it's tough to say, but it's like, until sometimes these things happened, we won't be able to prevent them in the future. You kind of need one, you know? Now, we're hoping there's a lesson to be learned here, right? This isn't like an oil spill, and then we're like, yeah, we keep having those things. And we're still don't know what to do about them. I was like, how have we learned the lesson already? We've got to watch the commercials with all the little purge to be in soap down. It was like, all right, come on, let's stop with the oil spills already. And I know there's been some technology changes in that and how our cleaning that up. But yeah, I think this is sort of the eye opener as far as. As far as all the batteries and stuff, right? Which, you know, we're not going to get into another conversation. I think we need an expert for this. But what are we going to do with all these goddamn batteries? Surely surely not favorable to put them at the bottom of an ocean? No, we don't want to put them in a lot of an ocean. I mean, we could recycle them, but they're not a 100% recyclable yet. They're recyclable to a point, and we're trying to make that better. How do we go to like whatever we're at? 70%, how do we go to 75, 80, 90%, being able to be recycled and to a 100% and who knows? So what I can take from that story is do our normal fire trucks, retrofitted with something that can put out a Tesla, if it catches on fire. You know, that's a good question. I don't know that's going to be the case everywhere, but I think there is an education process happening or could easily happen with a lot of firefighters and going, you know, you've seen this before, you're seeing, we're starting to see things like battery backups on houses and a lot of electric cars and hybrids and there has to be a thing where the firefighters are going, well what if we do if we can't get into one of these electric cars because it has the flush door handles that didn't pop open and they're supposed to pop open on an emergency, like what do we do there? And then yeah, what do we do for an electrical fire or battery fire? What are we using? Do we have extra chemicals or something on board to suppress that, not just the big hoses that we tap into the water grid, like what else are we doing? I'm sure they're figuring out. Listen, I'm sure they're figuring it out more in California than most other places because we got so many of these cars out here. And I mentioned Tesla because of the door handle, but we've already had hybrids and priuses and batteries all over the road for quite some time. So there's got to be, I don't know, we got to look into it or ask somebody or ask a firefighter and be like, hey, what are you guys doing about all these electric cars? They're going to catch on fire. And again, it's not like it's a flaw in the car, just like car accidents happen, things happen and it's inevitable. Yeah. Anyway, so kind of just moving down the list. We talked about the accurate Integra. Those of you that are interested in the Acura Integra. We've got a little bit of information on how to get on that list, the prices are going to start at around 30,000 bucks. The reservations for the Integra open up next month. March 10th. So if you go to the Acura website, I believe you can sign up now for the interest list. It doesn't obligate you to anything. You're just signing up saying, I'm interested in the car. And then on the tenth, they should send you an email and said, if you're interested, now you can place your reservation, or you could probably just go there on March 10th. But if you want the reminder, go to the website if you're interested in the car, you can sign up and I guess they'll keep you in the loop. I'm sure they're going to have it at the Grand Prix of Long Beach. That's going to be coming up sooner rather than later coming up in April. Looking forward to that. Yeah, that's it. I wanted to get into this more of this Chevy Z06 engine because as the car gets, I don't want to say delayed, it's not been delayed because I haven't really announced anything. I was at fair Jackson and talked to everybody at bear Jackson that I knew and I was like, you know, guys like Ken lingafelter and people from GM and I'm like, hey, so once this New Zealand 6 coming out, they're like, nobody knows. Nobody knows. If he doesn't know that nobody knows. That's right. And he said he talked to guys at GM and nobody's giving him an answer and reservations list. I don't think it's been out there. Same thing, like GM's doing with Acura or actors doing what GM has been doing, you can sign up, you can get on the interest list, but nobody's gotten an email yet saying, we're going to start accepting orders on a certain date. There's a deposit. There's none of that. The interest list was just yet another way to delay people. It is. They're interested and then delayed them for another period of time so that then you can place an order and then be delayed for another period of time, but it's not it's not just that manufacturer. It's everybody. It's everybody. That's the thing. It's everybody..

"Future. For new houses that are built. Retrofitting is let's just face it. That's sort of a wealthier game right now. If you've got money, you can retrofit to solar power and stuff, but eventually it's going to be, hey, all new houses. It's going to, you know, anybody, any builder out there. If you're building a custom home, you're probably want solar power anyway, and if you're building a custom home chances, are you can probably afford it. But the builders that are out there and building massive amounts of homes and track homes and entire communities, that's not going to fly. They're going to say everything's got to be solar power. Every one of these houses has to have solar power, and they are all going to feed the pot, right? Otherwise, we're just going to be stuck with a bunch of EV cars that we can't really charge because it's going to cost a fortune. And it's going to be like, hey, I don't want to plug my car in because it's the electric equivalent of $7 a gallon gasoline, right? Yeah. Anyway, that's just kind of my thought. But until then, get your EV Hummer and enjoy it because it looks fun and it looks badass. You're going to drain the power in your house going 12 months. Right. And then, of course, all the EVs are going to become more efficient. We knew this coming down coming down the pike. We knew that EVs were going to get software upgrades, more efficient batteries, lighter weight vehicles is going to be the biggest thing. Carbon fiber uses aerodynamics, things like that. It was interesting because we had mentioned before that Ford had even said with the Mustang Mach-E, they said, it's a little overbuilt. We have a lot of battery cooling. We have a miles of wiring and stuff in the vehicle that we probably don't need. We can start making things a little more efficient. So as we expected, the 2022 Mach-E, which is, you know, it's not a massive change. It's just sort of a few changes under the skin. Some mileage increases, right? From about 17 miles up to no change at all. But the rear wheel drive version of the car is going to get a 17 mile increase in range, the 13, the all wheel drive version is going to get 13 mile range. And then the extended range ones will get a little less, and then the GT models won't really get that much of a change. But because they're already like milking that battery for the high performance GT version. But the regular version, they're saying, well, there is some capacity in that battery. And with a little software tuning, we can turn that into range with the GT, like we're turning it into performance. But add it to range. So anyway, a little bump in range. Now, I don't know if current owners of the Mustang Mach-E can get an over the air update and get that range bump. I imagine there's some mechanical things happening. Again, like lighter weight, less stuff under the skin. But maybe there's some sort of over the air update where they can get 5 or 6 miles range instead of 17 on the new vehicles. But. I'm surprised at the top of the top of your news feed, you didn't mention that cargo ship. You know why we got on the cargo. So last week we had Ron caps on the show, by the way. And I went out to NHRA and saw everybody out there, saw the jigs sky, saw a cap, you know, our friends out there, but on shift and Sierra as well. We talked about the cargo ship that is on fire, it's burning out there. They can't drag it in because the fumes and. Last we reported on this, which was shifting to your last week, but it was recorded just a few days ago. It's VW. VW group. So Volkswagens, I guess Bentley, Porsches, but the issue was they don't know exactly what caused the fire. Now sub headline said, the electric cars on the ty cans and ID fours caused the fire. But if you read the wording, it's a little misleading. We're not saying the vehicles caused the fire. What we're saying is, when a fire broke out somehow and reached the electric cars and then they turned into lithium ion battery fires, that's where the issue came in because they didn't have the proper equipment on board to put out these battery fires. And that's why everybody had to abandon ship and they have to let that thing burn until they figure out what to do with it and they can't bring it in because it's fumes in the air and stuff. So I guess it's still burning. And they don't want it to sink, right? That's the big issue between battery, chemicals and other things. So they're trying to figure out a way to keep this thing afloat, but I guess you also got to make it safe to board or put out the fires. It's, listen, it's definitely a mess. And so I guess one of the things that needs to be addressed at some point is, again, just the result of progress is now all of these cargo ships are going to have to be outfitted. With fire suppressant systems that can handle EVs, can handle batteries. I'm sure all of these ships have fire suppressant systems that are antiquated, which sprinklers like in all of our modern builds, but nobody thought about carrying a 100,000 pounds of batteries. In there. Yeah. And then I don't remember what the total estimate of cost like damage is going to be, but the lost cars lost inventory, the ship, you know, everything else. It's a mess. It's super unfortunate. I don't like to see it. Nobody likes to see it..

"5 of the top wrestlers in the history of the world all drive yeah, yeah? Yeah. TRX is, you know, I heard all this like. Yeah. Goldberg, I'm not in that group, you know, but I'll just throw my name in there. And one of the current top guy, I actually am hooking him up with one that I saw yesterday. If the dealership that now has his name on it, and so yeah, you know, raptor raptor raptor TRX. All right, all right, well, for the new up and coming WW guys, you can get the ranger raptor. The range of raptors, it's gonna have the ten speed automatic transmission. It's gonna have an active exhaust with four different modes in it, including a Baja mode, which I think is self explanatory. They're doing this anti lag system with the turbos on the engine. It keeps the turbocharger spinning for up to about three seconds when your foot comes off the gas. So as you're either doing high speed or even low speed stuff, it keeps it keeps power on in the power band. So I'm curious to see how that feels. I imagine it's works fairly well, right? That's why we're talking about it and why it's a feature that they rolled out. They must have figured out a way to make it happen. Now keep in mind with the raptors, the mission has always been more of the high-speed off roading, right? That's kind of been the thing for raptors. There are other vehicles and F one 50s and Broncos and that do more of The Rock climbing, but the raptor was always meant to be sort of the high-speed off road or not that you couldn't do the slow paced off roading, but that was kind of the point. See what the Bronco raptor, right? We're going to see if they've alterations to that to make it more apt to be the slow speed crawler. Actually, what we were talking about while you were gone is the Bronco raptor we believe is, again, fitting the bill of like sort of the high speed one. But there may be another version of the Bronco. I don't know if it'll have the raptor name. But be outfitted for more of that low speed rock climbing capability. So I don't know, it could be sort of like a king of the hammers edition or something along the lines of that. I.

Yes put it sold a lot of other accurate our lineup. So success for them and You know in an interview. Recently they talk to the boss is over at acura and they said well.

"And started asking him about this. I think we asked him about it. When the sex debuted. Like i don't know and now that were years into it and guys like graham ray hall performance and a few people have tuned. Did he said yes. What happens is turns out his engineers engineers at acura tied in the hybrid system into the engine control unit into the isa so when you modify the gas engine and then tune they gas engine for that increase performance it automatically calibrates the hybrid system. That's basically explained it to so it compensates it. Does it starts to figure out a to be more aggressive in these areas and whatnot. Now this is. I'm sure it's more complex than this. But this is how he explained it to me was yes when you tune the vehicle does compensate. So here's an interesting point though. We didn't get an jumped down yes. We didn't get into into non tuned modifications like eight. Oh it's probably not enough to make a difference like first of all the car itself like a lot of modern cars will adapt to differ performance levels. While i mean is is if you accidentally throw eighty seven octane in it the computer will figure out what's going on and say hey retarded. Let's bring back the timing right so it's already adjusting. There's a there's a there's some buffer right in the tune so few slapped on exhaust and a couple of canaan air filters and picked up nine horsepower. Something like that. The car is just kind of going okay. The safety margins are usually not when you're not to increase horsepower. The the cars not going to go. Oh i i sense. Canaan filters. let's add seven horsepower. What is going to do is say. Oh there's bad fuel in it or air filters are clogged and we're not getting as much air. Let's compensate so those type of modifications neither here nor there unless you want to just change the sound but when you want to increase the actual performance and you tune the engine you get into some of the eu programming. It will figure it out it starts to figure it out. Maybe there's some limit to it. I don't know if it's six hundred horsepower. Type s and you're you know you're taking turbos and down pipes and all kinds of stuff and try to make seven twenty out of it a maybe figuring it out but it seems to be anyway. That was kind of the answer. That i got from from dave which i like. I like that. They thought ahead. Because that's basically what it's like. Yeah we actually did think about this. Yeah well they've got to because if you look at some of the people that have always been enthusiasts. Ns x they want to modify the conference you know. They're not the typical guy who just buys it drives on the weekends. They really wanna do some things. So we've got to think that through. I'm glad they did too. And they answered our question and answer a question. So this carl come in around two hundred thousand dollars if you want to Basically it's one hundred and seventy one five. If you want to spend a little bit more money you can get the lightweight package which is about thirteen grand at ads. The carbon ceramic brakes carbon fiber engine cover carbon fibre interior pieces and it actually does have a weight savings of about fifty eight pounds. I'm guessing it's mostly in the brakes. The carbon ceramic brakes but it should be. It should be impressive. Three hundred and fifty units will be made three hundred of them are in the us and there are some available. You can still put in an order and get one of those. I kinda dig it. I talked to dave dave. I think i think this is the car. You should get a really significant car in his career you know. Oh and i'm just going to address this as well. People have said the. Nsa was a failure so of said a massive failure. They're like it's not selling well. There's huge discounts on the car. I would. I would argue this. That's not why they made the ns sex. The nss the ns acts as a halo car was made to prop up the entire brand and just because the car itself. Maybe didn't sell as well as everyone expected. That's not the benchmark for the success. If you go back to them and say how do they'll say the mdx and the did better than ever right and that's an greenback back the integra because that's right. Yeah that's where the benchmark is if you said. Hey the nss lost money. They'll be like now. It didn't and we sold a shit ton more of our other cars and yes and then the punchline to this whole debut event which by the way i really cool show. They did a a a drone light show so instead of fireworks. They flew drones up there. Programmed and jones are cooler than fireworks. Yeah right that was a fucking cool display. That they did they could spell out words and and they had the logo but then it kinda spun around like three d. and really sinked up. Yeah it was so precise beautiful. I don't know how they do it on a windy day. Luckily the weather was perfect. The wind was perfect. Everybody at that party was just like stick around. Make sure you stick around. We've got something special later. Stick around the last time we did that. Jewel came out himself. Who's it going to be this time. We're wait for but when we got there. The place was configured differently. You know where where the food normally is is where the cars were and then the so. You'd kind of look at the cars into that whole like valley area. I don't know if there was a golf course down there where the stage used to be flipped it. Yeah so as. They made their presentation and then soon as a guy dark. They're like oh we got something to show you and they did this. This cool. drone light display acura logo. Ns sex future. Whatever they spell out a couple of words put on display and then at the end. Like integra. And i was like. Oh that's always waited for is they're bringing back the acura integra and they put more emphasis on the performance side of things. They said the the type pass the and the and the sedan. That's not going to be the end of it so expect more which we do love. We always kind of liked the performance side of acura from back in the day. And what they're doing now so anyway cool stuff. That was very very cool to see before. I get into coon taj. I'm gonna tell you guys about good guys. Ron custom show. That's coming up. And then brad tell us about going to the To the radford debut everybody's been hearing but let me tell you guys about the good guys rod and custom association it's coming to york pennsylvania for the second grundy collector car insurance great.

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.

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
