Budgeting Expenses While Living on The Road with Renewable Energy Worker Clayton
"Clayton. Welcome to the bigger targets. Many podcast. i'm so excited to have you today. Thanks guys. I'm really excited to be here. Appreciate all your advice. Throughout allentown cast stones awesome. Well thanks for listening. So clayton is a twenty six year old renewable energy worker living in the midwest and looking for some suggestions on financial planning in general so that he can retire early and lead his best life clinton. Why don't you walk us through your income and debts absolutely so right now. Actually our income just got cut by about forty percent girlfriend. Travels with me for work and she. Unbeknownst us lost her physician so lost forty percent of our income. I'm sitting at a salary for diem and a trailer allowance and then some rental income from a rental property that we have totalling about seven grand a month. Can you give us some background on that. So you say salary per diem and camper each just give us enough background in your job to understand why you have predicament camper allowance. Sure yes so. With the renewable energy side. We travel all over the country so ben everywhere from north dakota colorado oregon iowa and now down in texas so pretty gives me some money in basically not sleeping my own bed. Money right and then Trailer allowance. i live in a fifth wheel while on the road so kind of a unique living situation and they give me allowance for that too. Because there's obviously expenses that come with pulling a trailer and the wear and tear on the tyres and all that kind of thing so companies generous enough to give us allowances for those kind of things and yeah ok. Great eddie other sources of income besides the salary camper allowance pretty yup so we do have a rental property. that were satirized. Well we are at home so kind of one of those ideals to were living on the road but we have a home base and house hacking that home base. So that's bringing in about fifteen hundred a month for us right now and it's gonna go up hopefully the next month or two. Once we finished some slight remodels and get another room rented so it should go up to about two thousand dollars fantastic. Yeah expense side of things fixed expenses. Obviously we got the mortgage. We do have a car loan and then luckily enough again with the company. I worked for their great and they cover a lot of expenses on the road so the living allowance. The lot rent recover my lower end from camper all that kind of stuff. So it's pretty limited to mainly just jim internet's phone bills and then food things like that. So the picture informant. My head is a really strong financial position. We talked about a seven thousand dollars in income. Let's exclude the house act. We got about fifty five hundred dollars a month in income and are you kind of abbreviating that to after tax dollars. Yes yeah that's all after tax. Okay great so you got about fifty five hundred and after tax dollars plus we got income from your house hack how much is your mortgage mortgage is about twelve hundred dollars a month principal interests. I thank is around seven fifty. Our insurance is actually a little bit higher because the house situation is kind of odd. An taxes are actually relatively low about thirteen hundred a year. So awesome so even with maintenance. You're probably sitting at no more than fifteen hundred dollars. Total housing costs. What are your utilities. You think as hard to us for now just because we do live on the road and it's relatively low because we're one twice a month so i don't know maybe hundred dollars okay. So you're housing is free for all intents and purposes through the house hack. Is that right correct. Yep awesome love it. How about transportation is that also largely free because of the allowance for the camper and that type of stuff. That's another benefit as Transportation's pretty much free. I gotta company truck and again the company. I work for their so generous to let me use that personal time to you which is awesome. We do have a vehicle for my girlfriend and we do have a debt on that as well and believer sitting at eighty five hundred or so see if a balance of eighty five hundred on that in cash payment associated with it okay. What would you kind of estimate your total expenses to be housing. We've got to close zero. What would you say outside of housing. Your monthly expenses are unrelated to work man. I'd say twenty five hundred ish maybe a month and that's going to be broken out between that car payment in a gym and entertainment this types of things normal year when it's not twenty twenty. We tended to spend a little bit more than now. It's a little bit less but yeah okay great. So what i'm seeing. Here is an ability to accumulate at least fifteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month in cash flow on an ongoing basis. Is that right yes awesome and then when you look at your financial position do you feel that. The opportunities are going to be on the income side on the expense side or on the capital allocations piece in terms of managing the money. You're accumulating i say right now are sitting pretty good as far as the income. I feel pretty solid with the income side of things granted like i said we did lose some of that coming in but i believe there is work to do on our expense side of things. 'cause i don't accurately track it. Everything i do is rough estimates. So i know what my phone is monthly. I know what the car payment is monthly but the food and all that stuff who knows i mean sometimes we go out and have fun and go out to local italian restaurant or whatever it is so perfect so i think we're gonna have a phone with this because your expense the way you've just described your situation. We don't housing expense. And i see a path forward here. Where if for example if your path that over the next year to you don't have to pay for housing and you don't have to pay for vehicle at least in the short run. I mean you get to that point and you have a thousand dollars per month is what i understand per diem. Is that right. Roughly a thirty six days. So depending on when i'm work that worked when i'm at home so about thousand

That is a case of criminal negligence on my part. I i have a feeling your partner in crime was trying to suppress my voice. You're more than likely just because he's not here. I take shots at. That's absolutely right. have you been. I'd be good. That'd be good you know. Hey it's a pandemic. so what can we say but hanging in there Staying out more trouble than i normally would because it's harder to find trouble that's yeah it has been one crazy crazy year. Hasn't not or how are how are you guys doing with it. Down on fairly look being managed out of control i would say that four populated countries. I think australia has to be pretty close to the top of the list for the way we've handled it the that's all. i think. Awesome the here about a lot in the news here. We don't hear australia mentioned so that's interesting because they've done very well as well live managed to keep it under control will And put it on the news a lot. I think for the entirety of the year. I think streisand had about a thousand deaths if that all. I don't think we've had massive numbers at all. Victoria had a second wave way. The whole state went into lockdown for months on end and people were not allowed by the houses unless they had a good reason did they could only go within a five kilometer range and all that sort of stuff so we've been at governments have come under criticism for being too heavy handed but when i look look at africa's against say the us figures kind of think well i'd rather a slightly heavy handed government that actually keeps us alive the one that draws the just sweep it under the cap and pretend it's not a problem it's getting pretty rough here in europe is also going through the same and right now of course we're kind of in this crazy limbo where you know. We're really not getting any great direction. At this point administration. They're they're talking a lot. They're encouraging people. But obviously we still have the old administration. It's basically sand. Yeah there's no pandemic everything's fine. It's like we kind of live in two different worlds. Yeah it's been an interesting year this year so photographic. Have you been up this year. Haw well let's see. Prior to this year. I was doing a ton of traveling. Or olympus since my other sponsors teaching that kind of stuff i came into this year with what would have been literally my busiest year probably in the last twenty years might might. You're booked solid The beginning of the year. I was doing a nationwide tour. For olympus introducing the new owen. Dam one three camera. And the last trip i made was down to florida in the first week of march and Came home a couple of days later. We went into lockdown and within three weeks my entire schedule for the year was just wiped out. Everything had cancelled well in advance A few of the events went Went virtual but You know. I've always kind of been somewhat of an entrepreneurial spirit so i figured all right you need to pivot quickly and Some photographers pivoted by kind of moving into like product photography in that because fortunately people were still producing catalogues online stores. And i really didn't feel like going back into that area. I'd done that years and years and years ago. So federate i'm teaching. I'm enjoying the teaching. So i didn't learn how to do it online and i took a couple of days and did the whole pros and cons thing like okay. What are all the things that i like about online teaching. And what are all the things that i hate. And not of course was the longer list I'm a bit of a marketing nerd. So i've done a lot of marketing. Webinars where you sit there and the instructors staring down a laptop screen with really bad lady and a blurry image. And they're like okay. Let me let me share my screen with you. Oh wait hold on a second hold on I knew i had that slide deck. You're just a second you know. They're just painful. So at that point i did a ton of research figure out. What's it gonna take. How can i make a presentation. That is as close to doing in person as possible without really being there. And
Court: Pot smell alone can't form basis for vehicle search
"Is the smell of pot sufficient cause for police to search a car in Pennsylvania the answer is yes it can be enough a Pennsylvania appeals court overturned a judge's ruling that state police did not have a valid reason to search a car just because it smelled like marijuana the higher court said Lehigh county judge Maria de Santos should have considered other evidence that did support the search the Allentown morning call reports police found a loaded gun and marijuana in a passenger's possession but because he had a medical marijuana card the judge said he should have been let go prosecutors successfully argued the search was legal police have a right to conduct a warrantless search if they believe there's hidden contraband inside a vehicle but new questions are now arising because marijuana is permitted now in so many states I'm Jackie Quinn
Unpacking Palantirs Public Debut: CEO Alex Karp
"This is squawk pod I'm CNBC producer Katie Kramer today on our podcast. unpacking Pailin, tear the high profile highly secretive software company has operated quietly for seventeen years and it's finally on the public markets. And -ticipant I I think for maybe the past ten years CEO Elon on why it it took. So long my lawyers will shoot me what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a longtime before other people building and how he expects to become profitable with a small, but mighty and mighty controversial of customers. Well, how can you have the Super Valuable Company? They're only a hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond. Yeah. But one, hundred, twenty, five most. Interesting institutions in the world I would ask people who are watching this to make a list of the institutions they admire in the world, and then roughly figure out if they're using pounder that interview plus the politics behind listing journalist Joanne Lipman fits a company that is very, very closely aligned with the trump administration. There's a huge question here about what happens if trump does not win the presidency it's Thursday October first October twenty twenty the year is still twenty twenty squawk pot begins right now. Good morning and welcome the squawk box right here on CNBC. I'm Andrew Ross Sorkin along with Joe Kernan Becky off today. Today on the PODCAST volunteer goes public analytics company that is usually described as secretive debuted yesterday the direct listening selling new shares on the New York Stock Exchange covered live on CNBC how tears for trading why secretive well here is named after magical orb and Lord of the Rings. But in seventeen year history, it hadn't made much public volunteer received early funding from the venture arm of the CIA and provide software products designed to crunch numbers. One of these programs is called Gotham and it's for government clients. Who Need to organize an understand massive amounts of data. So surveillance predictive policing, possibly rooting out potential terrorism threats, Pailin tear works with US Army Navy Department of Homeland Security and it's working with health and human services to help track the spread of Corona virus case data that we just recorded. We can immediately narrow into emerging hotspot counties, notable backers of talent tear include investor, and Co founder Peter Thiel who has gotten attention for his conservative politics and support of president trump in the two thousand, sixteen campaign. Evening. I'm Peter Thiel I'm not a politician, but neither is donald trump as well as his work technology companies. He was facebook's first big investor other pollen tear backers include wall streeters like Hanlon and Stanley Druckenmiller when talent tear filed paperwork with the SEC to pursue publising listing earlier this year it's called the swan event is finally got a sense of the books turns out pollen tear had never turned a profit and. A, huge chunk of its revenue came from its three biggest clients which are anonymous in the first six months of twenty twenty. It's revenue of nearly half a billion dollars a big jump from the year before this was addressed by pollen tear CEO, Alex Carp investor roadshow, which true to carbs personality, and true to the weirdness of twenty twenty was virtual and started on cross country skis. Welcome to Powell, tears investor day. We're very proud to have you here. Carp is an Orthodox for a CEO. He has amazing curly hair. He uses the modifier super allot super cool and speaking to potential investors. He made the pitch for the importance of Pailin tears purpose. This way of looking at the world war literally savior situation and in many cases Save Your Life Allen to has moved beyond. Just government clients fifty-three percent of its customers are in the private sector big name businesses who use a software program called foundry include Airbus Merck Ferrari and United Airlines but it's work for governments here and others around the world stuck to its reputation allentown faced criticism from privacy groups and for its work with the US Customs and border. Patrol. Tracking immigrants at the border. But Carp in the company not backed off in. That s one filing the leader of this highly valuable tech uniform said, Pailin tears work is different in his view software missions to keep safe may have become controversial but companies built on advertising dollars are commonplace and carp took aim at big tech culture directly writing quote our company was founded in Silicon Valley. But we seem to share fewer and fewer of the technology sectors, values and commitments. Helen tear moved its corporate headquarters to Denver and its shares headed to Wall Street. If you think, we are going to change our internal culture drastically if you think we're going to work with regimes that are not allied with the US enter abusing human rights if you think. that. That the future is going to be a super rosie place where the past ways of supplying software are going to work because enterprises and governments do not need to be reformed you should not invest in pounder. Andrew. Ross Sorkin has interviewed Alex Carpet number of times. This conversation was reported Wednesday yesterday right after the first trade for here on the New York. Stock Exchange. We've had lots of conversations over the years. This has been probably one of the most highly anticipated offerings or listings in a very long time. Almost every year that we would talk in Davos I would invariably ask you are you going to go public? Are you gonNA list and invariably you wouldn't. So let's start with why now? Well, first of all, thank you for having me and I and I really would like to thank all the pound tyrians who stuck with us and built this company and our investors you're stuck with us and you know over the years we've been skeptical about listing and for lots of reasons, we really needed to build our products. With enough protection so that we would be ready to launch them into the public space. And we built we built out PG government and foundry product and and built a way to maintain them so that we wouldn't have to scale the number of people and. You know we've reached a base where where our company's very significant and we believe being in the public space will help us with our clients and help us grow and quite frankly I believe the people apparently who built this company over seventeen years. Deserved a access to liquidity. So we we decided this would be great time for us and so far. It's been a really interesting process and and our clients are embracing it. So it's a really good time for us and I'm very, very grateful. Outlets. The single biggest question that investors ask about this company is seventeen years in while you know may have an operating profit, the company unto itself is still not profitable. So so walk us through what the path to profitability looks like. Well, you know we build these products years before people build them, and that takes money and what you see in the cove it pandemic crisis is we had built this way of going to market with foundry, which would allow us to literally supply an enterprise with a completely new stack of products within six hours and maintain them. And what you saw when we did that is we grew the company forty, nine, percent, forty, nine percent off of a seven, forty, three base and the divergence between expenses and in growth is dramatic. And we're just going to be very very focused on on an invigorating, our software offering. But when you're growing forty-nine percent off of a seven forty base. I think that's a pretty strong indication of what the future could hold and we're super proud of that and I think you're seeing that people are taking a look at our financials and our our company is often been used viewed as complex and. Needing explanation both moral and financial but it turns out our financials are quite simple and you look at this dramatic growth with flat lining expenses and I think that gives investors comfort and it certainly makes me feel as. Co Founder and CEO that we made the right decision to invest heavily over well over a decade in building software, the way other people don't to build it and you see the results do you think the profitability is at twenty twenty, two, proposition twenty, twenty, three proposition can I put you on that? Well, you you can push me but of course, my lawyers will shoot me I can tell you what I can tell you is we are very very focused on building software a time before other people building, supplying it and I think that are year I. First Half of the year growth will be reflective of the future and if I'm right. That will answer all of your interesting questions and we'll be interviewing. You'll be interviewing me again maybe not a Davos but virtually, and we'll see how we do. Confident confident we'll do well. Alex, one of the other questions people ask is how to comp your company meaning what are the comparable should this be considered a technology company as SAS company or should this could be considered a much more traditional consulting company? Can you speak to that? Well I think what the investors are seeing is they're asking the question at this point they used to ask is this is this a company that built software for the government and how do they build it? Of course we always sold this as a license. Then they saw our margins of the first half of the year round eighty percent. So I think the real debate now is. Move significantly away from is this software services because although people think we're very smart, we're not smart enough to get eighty percent margins off of a services company. The question then is, how do you comp it and honestly I think that's something investors will have to figure out. We're not focused on that we're focused on we are going to be the most important software company in the world. And people will figure out what valued over a long period of time and we're very comfortable with investors toying around it could be like this. It could be like that. We are going to deliver the best software. With the morals most efficient way of delivering it investors will decide what's that. What's that were is worth to them and I think you'll find a number of years that will be a consensus. Palette. Here is a truly special software company that is arguably the most important software company in the world. Alex has everybody knows You have contracts with various government agencies, obviously and some of the bluest of the blue chip companies in America today, but it's a concentrated list of about one hundred and twenty-five companies. About Twenty eight percent of the revenue actually comes from three of those clients unto themselves. Two thirds of the revenue comes from the top twenty. How much of a risk does that pose on one side but also when you think about the opportunity on the other, if we're having a conversation like this in in twelve or twenty, four months, how much do you want that list to increase in size or do you just want to keep that group effectively and a effectively raise the margin or cost for those clients? And grow that business. Well, we want to do all the we're going to do all of the above. So interesting about our client list people people ask, well, how can you have the super? Valuable Company they're only one hundred and twenty-five customers to which I respond but one hundred and twenty-five most interesting institutions in the world. These aren't just any institutions. The literally, I would ask people who are watching this to make. A list of the institutions they admire in the world and then roughly figure out if they're using, we don't go out and advertise our product, but I would say the list of our clients is the single most impressive institutions in the world I've ever seen we. So we want to keep these clients. Also investors will of noticing in the one that well over ninety percent of our growth in the first half of the. Year came from our existing clients. What does that mean our existing clients? The most important clients in the world are really happy that's what it means. So of course, we're going to expand those really happy clients who happen to be the coolest people on the planet, and then we've built this product which has gotten very little attention called Apollo Apollo allows us to maintain and deliver software to any number of clients with essentially. Not growing our our force apparent and force at all. So we're planning now that we have Apollo to grow the number of super cool customers all over the world, and we can do it without raising our headcount, and so what you're going to see is we're going to continue building with our clients why they're the most interesting clients in the world and they clearly based on our numbers like us and some of us. We are going to expand our client base. Why? Because now with Apollo, we can deliver the whole stack in six hours. I don't think any other company I've ever seen in the world can do that, and we can do with efficiencies that I don't know any other companies going to do because we can do this with a small number of people sitting in our office that we have maintaining, updating and providing them with new products we built. So they don't have the Frankenstein monster that takes two years to build and has to be maintained with either human hours like in the government contracting case or by purchasing new product or compensating sales people or behind. It people you don't even talking to you can actually buy one stack. So we are going to increase revenue with current customers, get new customers and continue our march. Alex how easier heart is because I know you've talked about trying to keep things in in terms of the platform if you will how he's your heart it for four clients to leave in terms of the churn. Well, as I mentioned, ninety, five percent of our revenue comes from existing customers. So customers, obviously if a customer wants to leave they, can I think the main reason our customers stay besides the fact that the output is very significant as they look at this product, we supply foundry the average customers paying less than six million dollars and they compare it to buying twenty products paying ongoing licensing. Fees. You can't get out of or building something over years, and the last thing they compare it to is we're not delivering a roadmap. Most people are living roadmap of what are you going to get in a year we're delivering a product after six hours so customers can leave. But what you see in the numbers is they by and large don't, and it's not because of my charming personality. Alex well, let me ask you a different question. We've had lots of fascinating geopolitical and philosophical questions about the role of technology and Pailin tear itself as well as the approaches silicon valley has taken. I'm curious in terms of risks how you think about this Amnesty International as you know, criticized, the company recently for its role of working with ice. How much of that does that pose a risk to the larger business? Especially, the corporate business at a time when we have corporations at taking both political positions and also being oftentimes being socially at activist. To Your Business Well, look the fact that we take positions that are sometimes controversial can cost. US clients. But it also gets us. Clients because when we talked to a client and we say look we're going to work with you. We're not gonNA walk away just because the winds change and this is super important especially to our government clients if you're supplying special forces and army and the US, those clients have to know that they will not be left on the battlefield. Because a because Silicon Valley has decided they don't like the warfighter. So of course that costs revenue many of our decisions of cost US revenue we only work in certain countries we've walked away from work because if human rights issues we've said, we disagree with very prominent human rights organizations and we engage in dialogue but also by the way is a reason why I Think people who are watching this may consider investing or not investing. We are not going to stand up here and say we're for everybody we're not going to pretend, and by the way we're going to try avoid jargon. We will actually tell you what we think it's not going to be created by fifty media people it may have to be carried by a couple. Of Lawyers but one of the unique things about power tears, we actually say things and we actually stick to them and that's something not everyone likes but many of our customers do and by the way I think it is a reason why ninety five percent of our revenue comes from customers because when we tell them, we're going to deliver we are going to deliver. Alex. One of the other questions now you all republic company. But as you know, you have three tiers of stock classes of shares that is and to some degree there have been critics who said, this is effectively a private company masquerading as a public company. Can you speak to the decision to structure the shares the way that they are structured and how governance experts and folks should think about that I think it's important for government experts to look and make an deliver opinion but I would also ask them to consider the environment we live in pound tear has been in silicon valley up till recently for seventeen years and in silicon. Valley. Defending the. warfighter providing our troops with technology that allowed them to come home is very controversial. I do not believe a company like ours that makes really consequential decisions for government clients and non-government clients could be run without an F. share structure and I understand there's criticisms investors look and say, well, why should talent you're having F. structure? What is my? What is my what? What can I do if? I don't agree with them. The primary reason why we fought for an structure and we asked investors to buy into it was we need to be able to go to our especially our Intel and defense clients and say, we will not just blow with the wind. And does shares for a company like ours gives us a unique ability to have long-term commitments to the most important clients in the world, both commercial and government, and that's why I believe they're super important, and I also again would encourage people if that's not something you're comfortable with there are many shares to buy. We don't have to buy challenge your shares. You should buy shares knowing that these shares reflect our views. Alex we've often had these conversations in Davos where globalization has ruled the roost but as you know so well, the world seems to be shifting to a globalized world, a splinter net if you will. How do you think long term that will affect the business of here We made this decision, which is actually a secret only because no one believes it's true which is that we didn't solve the problem of fighting terrorism. We solve the problem of doing data protection and fighting terrorism, and the architecture we built both PG and for foundry will allow a super set to work with subsets, which means if the world's splinters and every country has its own jurisdictions, it's GonNa be very hard for normal software companies because they're not built to do that but it's going to be very good for Palette here and finally Alex. Decision five years from now today. How would you measure success? Here, what would be the metrics which measure it? We know they're there obviously financial metrics but I'll tell you Powell cheer has recruited and retained I believe the most interesting most talented most ethical people I've ever met and we work I've interacted with thousands of institutions and in five years when meet I think he'll say to me. Wow, that wasn't just you saying that because it was the right thing to say it's actually true. And the products that will build over that period we'll we'll. We'll be unique and they will tilt the course of history. In favor of things that are good and noble. And will not avoid the complexity that's necessary to do that outlets. Carpool. You lots of luck and we do look forward to having that conversation hopefully in five years. But hopefully sooner than that. Thanks so much Alex.

Battling Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs
"We're GONNA start our show today by taking a trip back to the nineteen eighties when singer. Songwriter Billy Joel was at the top of his game and he released two. Song Allentown about the decline of the steel industry. In America steel factories were closing in steelworkers. Were losing their jobs. The song shed light on the challenges the workers faced and at the same time. It made allentown a city in Pennsylvania quite famous so now let's fast forward twenty or so years. Two Thousand and one and Allentown is in the news again but this time it's because of an insect an agricultural pest from Asia had somehow found its way to Pennsylvania. The insect called the Brown rated stink bug feeds on apples. Peaches figs mulberries citrus fruits and other crops. Well it didn't take long for these tough little bugs to spread and by twenty ten. They wrecked havoc on orchards and crops in various parts of the United States. And the really bad news. Is that Brown? Mom rated stink. Bugs are still here and there on the move and they may soon arrive to a fruit tree near you. So what can we do about it? I've invited Tracy Leschi to the studio today to find out. She's an entomologist. And by the way an optimist as you will discover in this interview today. She's also the director of the Appalachian Fruit Research Station at Cairns Ville West Virginia. Her research is focused on the development of behaviorally based management tools for invasive and native pest of fruit crops. But before we start chatting I would love to hear your stories and your questions during the show you can email those questions and stories to in-studio one. Oh one at g mail DOT COM and do remember to include your first name and the city. You're writing from so tell us. Have you seen these bugs in your fruit trees? And what have you done about it in studio one a one at g mail dot com is the email so now to Tracy Leschi. Thanks for coming on the show today. Thank you Susan for the invitation. I'm so glad to have you here. And hopefully you will shed some light on these mysterious bugs. Oh my goodness so. The Story Starts Allentown. Can you tell me a little bit about that discovery? What was happening around then here. So you know Brown Mama Rated Stink Bug as you've already mentioned is a species that is not native to North America. It's native to Asian countries including China Japan Korea and Taiwan. This insect is an excellent hitchhiker And we'll probably get to that in a little while but at some point in the to late. Nineteen nineties homeowners. In and around the Allentown region of Pennsylvania were Seeing some interesting invaders in the fall to their homes and in fact these were Brown. Mom rated stink bugs. Now the issue was is that they weren't properly identified until two thousand one when Karen Bernhardt who with Penn State cooperative extension in Pennsylvania collected some of these specimens from a homeowner and she ended up sending them to attacks honest Rick Holbeck at Cornell and he identified them as Brown mom rates. Think so this was the first official record of population in North America. So how on Earth would they have gotten there? How did they get to these people's homes right so one of the interesting things about Brown mom rated stink bug is that they are excellent hitchhikers as adults and that means is that they can sort of end up being concealed and hidden from view and sort of take a journey to somewhere else and this is related to what we as entomologist refer to as their over wintering behavior which is essentially like hibernation for insects. So when these insects hibernate more or less they crawl into cracks and crevices and hunker down and wait for spring. And if these cracks or crevices happens to be in some sort of shipment of goods or perhaps in your suitcase or who knows This is how often these bugs have been transported to new locations. Whoa so how quickly would they spread? So let's say or what a what a thought. Let's say it's in your suitcase. You've gone on holiday to China. Or whatever he brought back these little hitchhiking bugs So let's say you have one bug or two bugs what happens then. How quickly would they spread? Well if you found one or two bucks I'd tell you to kill them I but You know it's a good question. They have a pretty good Reproductive capacity that sort of what we say in terms of you know how quickly can a population build up? Based on the reproductive efforts of a female a single female can lay up to twenty eight eggs at a time in in an egg mass. And she can lay up to four hundred over her lifetime. So you can imagine if you know. Just a portion of those eggs survived to adulthood and then reproduce. You can see that. A population could build rather quickly so is is that what happened like You know how quickly did this problem spread? You said it started sort of in the late nineties. It was discovered two thousand and one. And then what happens? Well what happened? After that was it was a slow spread And it was a slow build up for a number of years so in two thousand and three I found the first specimen officially outside Pennsylvania in Maryland. Just south of Allentown Pennsylvania. I in in sort of central Maryland in a town called Hagerstown There was some. Also some official detections in New Jersey and then it continued to spread through what we refer to as the mid Atlantic here in the United States and to Virginia West Virginia You know parts of Delaware Into upstate or sort of well. I should say downstate New York so the populations continued to build Over a number of years and then you know really began to build quickly back in two thousand eight two thousand nine and in two thousand and ten throughout the region. We really experienced what we refer to as an outbreak population. So what did that look like Especially if you're growing cheese. Yeah it looked well you know. When we first began to detect problems in fruit trees from Brown mom raided stink bug and say two thousand eighteen thousand nine. The issues were confined really to the late season. Where just before harvest and this is really painful. If you can imagine your fruit just about ready to be picked from the tree almost ripe. We were seeing large numbers of adult invading the orchards in the fall and feeding on the fruit and this was causing for some of our local growers up to ten percent loss. Even back then but in two thousand and ten we saw the bugs invading earlier much earlier actually just after the fruit had formed just after pedal fall essentially in these orchards. In that early season feeding really set up our growers for significant losses. Where you know for our Peach Growers. Many growers lost their entire crops. Most lost half of their crop. And then it just went on from there. You know apples and Incurred ABOUT THIRTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS IN LOSSES. Thousand and ten just locally. That's terrible was the fruit. Not salvageable at all. I mean what what do these Brown marmalade stink bugs due to the fruit? Yeah they are you know. They are a typical stink bug species in that their mouth parts are essentially a straw and they insert that Straw into the fruit tissue and they inject some salivary enzymes that essentially helps break down that tissue and suck out the juice and so what they leave behind. Is this dry corky tissue beneath the surface of the skin as well as discolored display depressions on the surface now for peaches because the feeding Began so early essentially once you peel that fruit. The entire fruit was riddled with these deep pockets of dead comey tissue and you know. The entire fruit was essentially unsolvable. It was just a complete loss. For FOR APPLE. Growers some of the fruit could be redirected to From sort of a fresh market to juice market. But you know they're getting Cents on the dollar in terms of the value so in essence they're losing over. Ninety percent of the value of that fruit have normally gone into fresh market. So it was very

China's Xi warned officials that efforts to contain coronavirus outbreak could hurt economy
"Let's get back to our top story in the coronavirus death toll has hit one thousand one hundred fifteen is the latest data from China signals that the outbreak may be easing that said Japan has found thirty nine more cases on board quarantined luxury cruise ship and DBS has this morning evacuated three hundred people from its Singapore office after a worker tested positive for the virus for more let's go live to Beijing weapon bags Tom mackenzie is standing by Tom great to have you with us we heard from xiecheng paying leading a chorus of voices expected expressing optimism about the Chinese economy but one thing that caught my attention was officials in the province of judge John saying that the focus has shifted from all out efforts to prevent and control the outbreak toward containing the epidemic wall insuring the economy's operation is that example in judge John an approach that's going to be taken across the country if China is going to defend its GDP target which would like to hear more which we will hear more about next month increasing I suspect it will be because of course and it speaks to the delicate balancing act now that if the schools we cubicles meet officials under John what school are not trying to ensure that they continue to chill that they've closed the business was operating waffle so short out another quarantine measures in place to keep this arts in check in at the very difficult balance of course to make but what we have seen over the last few days is that she's been in the states now it's all here in Beijing she wore black companies where they aren't properties that are not affected the chronicle DOT approved by getting a spot treat back up and running getting back on the production line and back to their offices but a lot of it is bound to insurance why change replace that majestic companies are able to operate both blocks around of the way in the course of employees can get from Allentown where many instead off to that country's go back that workplaces they are the next few weeks how can it be and what it does raise the risk of infections picking up and points to the right of inspections on the important point is that those additional cases to continue Kerr for not let people go in comfort from the navy we're getting to the point where this box is starting to take the country attention potentially but obviously being closely watched what is there in terms of progress when it comes to developing a vaccine what would work for a Chinese company to Beijing will quite Gee I should say now they responded by taking a drug that you develop like yeah on an American company and they started to match the cues and it is an experimental drug and have been licensed to have to be approved in China and bank anywhere else around the world but it's part of China that that's the kind of accelerate the moves to try and find a back in some form of treatment I mean the one side the most of him that Johnson Johnson and U. S. character like the network all the tent to develop a banking as well hand in hand with the US government and she shared some calls around the house okay yeah all Rick celebrating but as we talked about previously it's a long way off having a licensed and regulated by the filter and John are back let's try anything in that search yes I'm so from xi Jinping of course what we heard was about the outlook all the economy and and expressing the optimism around that told but also he's previously talked about his concerns around social stability if the outbreak gets any worse is that still a concern even as local governments annexing a web of rules restricting movement there's always the number one concern our number one priority for the Communist Party is social stability it was interesting that president xi Jinping at your party points out with quite Frank about that that the spread of the disease stocks where social stability not with a clear message from local officials on the ground who happened to battle with a few cents the quarantine measures but also in short the people are able to get back to work and get it speak to this balance because the people working there will be no calling salary that cost of living goes up and net disposal they can go down to this pressure of coastal this is a balancing act that is clearly in focus for officials say whether they can strike a course or something we should pull thanks to mackenzie thank you so much for joining us live from Beijing this morning all

S. so coracle conundrum if you want to call it that where well Christ the money suffering on the cross he turns to the good he then says this very day you will be with me in paradise in yet traditionally Christ is you know isn't supposed to rise until the third day and on Easter morning he says to any surprises you Marie Madeleine at the tomb he says such me not for I have not yet ascended to my father so I was wondering if you add the thought about that had given it any thought I know you're not necessarily in the vanity but I have a masters of divinity and and I you and I spent a lot of time with these types of narratives and even as for example coming up tomorrow night when god had a wife on coast to coast and we deal with some of the some of these aspects of the stories that are told that my very specifically used the plural version we have there are conflicting elements of stories now some people will hate that and they'll say no no they all fit together and they don't always and that's where the that's what the Bible is most interesting to me like why was it that Mary couldn't touch Jesus after the stone is rolled away but then later Thomas can put his hand in the wound you know it what what exactly is going on there we don't know and so a lot of ways perhaps what we there are big take away from anything to do with the Bible is to not expect that everything will snap together like legos and that we should look at the disparities in the stories is being sometimes representative of who's telling the story and who's receiving the story not so much the story itself so I think it I think part of what we'll get to coming up tomorrow night on coast to coast and Walter I think you'll find it very interesting is that there are elements of these early narratives about god that still exist in the text it's just now we don't really we kind of glossed over them but the idea of the sacred feminine and whether there were other gods that worked under Neath god the you know the the the the which we would call ya away or the you know the holy of holies to gods the best god the king of king gods however you look at that where there there were other people that were in service to that god that were also divine there are elements of that there are references to that all through the Bible we just kind of you know they don't fit in our simplification of the narrative so we don't really focus on them but we will coming up tomorrow night a coast to coast and I hope you'll be listening because I think you will enjoy it and that brings me to Andy who's in Alabama on coast to coast on wildcard line go ahead any he's handing me a in their seats during those that made the veil Lauder were outlawed one is that in nineteen ninety six the telecommunications act of nineteen ninety six already L. log screens on phones because they discriminate against the blind and handicapped and I don't know whether you learn and sell it and all the way you test your phone the building gagging blindfolded and struggle for trying to make a call in a slightly searing that have to click on tonight's on this you have to see if I would just use sciri I would say sciri call might my mother and daughter I'm in a trunk what's that doesn't work for everybody here's a question does everything that we may have to work for everybody that lives as many as possible has very in compliance with the telecommunications act of nineteen ninety nine and the screens or not you shouldn't have to clicking click in see I constantly phone call well I don't know enough about that actor what was subsequently addressing that actor whether there were revisions to that act or whatever so but I I I am curious because like you have a long list of things that should be outlawed right now I don't know that when you bring it up when you when you bring it up you'll you'll bring up all the things that you think should be outlawed and so it went on to you yeah okay do you have another thing we should outlaw when the national federation of the blind is pushing this thing because he stayed for violations however it should be outlawed to rake leaves in a specially Barnum because people are robbing the soul of nutrients that are vital to the ecosystem and they should be allowed to compost employees yeah I want to do that well so will be much richer and I don't want to do that there will be better for you I don't want to do it so why shouldn't law make me do it if we live in a free society why should I be forced to do that well S. thank you Joe Wally I'm asking you why do I why should we be making laws all the time that force people to do things were farm it nobody's others nobody's harmed by me not composting and I don't wanna compost river rose very I don't want to I don't want to will one day but I don't eat something wonder that grows there nobody devoid of nutrients well that I understand that's a look at it but I'd that's not I don't I think it's easy to write laws until everybody's got to do this and to use the legal system or use legislature to always be making people do stuff but that to me runs contrary to a free society you want to convince me that it's good okay and you want to persuade me that I should or shouldn't be doing that that's all right I happen to live next to a a forest and I get all of the leaves on my property there are times when I open my front door in its like a snow drift of leaves and it show no I will be rake and and if I don't rake it they just pile up six inches deep and it cuts off my lawn and I like a little bit a lawn and so does my dog and so I want it to be able to live life the way I want and I don't want somebody telling me what I can and can't do with the leaves that that pile up on my property so I don't think that's a I don't like the way we should be always be thinking about things we need to outlaw and force other people to do but I do like I do think there should be options for blind people and I hope that that's perhaps one of the revisions that you don't know about is that there ARE availabilities for touch screens and that it isn't just everybody's in violation of this nineteen ninety six law but you know the blind people have options and they should be and and every person is handicap should have options but I happen to like my touch screen in a lake scenery and I want to keep that too so I'll be I'll be doing my touch screen while I'm breaking and I'll be thinking of you wildcard line Mike is in Colorado on coast to coast Mike what's up you know thank you so much for taking my call I'm always grateful you're one of my favorite radio host in the business so in the industry so I really appreciate it thank so a couple things I want to get your take on so as we all know the Oakland Raiders who played deal can call their last game at the Oakland Coliseum his Sunday they make the playoffs by some Christmas miracles the end I wanted to get your take on how the raiders kind of deserted their city and you know they've been their fifth which time or one in which time your return home when they moved to LA when they move back yeah go ahead sorry right well you know I you know it's just a place I you know I've grown up watching they'll come because he need not right I mean it's one of the best places for football I think but also I was going to get some of your your your favorite memories of the past decade of coast to coast AM and where you see coast to coast AM P. O. the next decade I thought I'd be a really interesting conversation topic you know that's a really I think actually that's it I have a first hour tomorrow that I haven't had anything booked I think I'm gonna take a quick look at that for for next for tomorrow night first hour because this is it I I it just it just occurred to me to hurt somebody else saying the close of the decade and I was like wow and it's right it's coming up in here when we're running a two twenty in so goodbye to nineteen I love I I like that idea I like that a lot so I have to think about it before I give you a an answer which I wouldn't it wouldn't do well with that part of the two is I was off the air for a little bit more this decade than it was in previous decades on a coast so I have to think about that but it's for the raiders are concerned you know I am a sports fan and I do like football and I know I'm not supposed to right which was to but I do and I I find that I feel sorry for the people of Oakland I think they they bled for that team twice and the fact that they're leaving and going to Vegas good for Vegas and I know that you have for every you know it the door closes a window opens yeah maybe another team will come into Oakland and that'll be good but I'll never be the raiders there's something about you know there's a certain teams that just fit in that town that birth them and I think that the raiders are distinctly in that group and they you know they the cardinals they could move from Chicago where they started originally to Saint Louis to Phoenix and there's something about the character of the old Chicago cardinals that was lost when they became the St Louis cardinals that was lost when they became the Phoenix cardinals but I I feel for the people of of Oakland that was their tears a scrappy team it was a it does have that been kind of like almost kind of lost in New York kind of a vibe we're gonna fight our way out of this kind of a thing and so I I hope the people of of Oakland get something good later on I hope that they they hang on to the teams of they do have then I I'll never feel good about about the raiders being in Vegas or something about it that's just wrong it doesn't fit it just doesn't fit to me but that I I will watch and by the way I've never been a raiders I haven't really been a raiders fat because as I was growing up they were the means or the villains but I still I still identify with the people of Oakland on that west of the Rockies John is in Birmingham on coast to coast AM eight Johnny still always gone.

Vineyards Facing An Insect Invasion May Turn To Aliens For Help
"Bug recently arrived from China is munching its way across eastern Pennsylvania from there. It's poised to spread across much of the country. Killing trees and grapevines finds so scientists are considering something drastic importing other insects the bugs natural enemies from the place it came from NPR's. Dan Charles has the story. I was walking around the park near Allentown Pennsylvania and I didn't even notice the bugs at first then heather leach arrived the insect expert Berg from Penn state but if you take under these leaves sure enough they're climbing up underneath the ivy and then I realized they're all over. This tree spotted lantern flies. A marching column of gray bugs each one about an inch long black spots on their wings sucking sap from the tree. They're kind of ugly especially. When there's thousands of them you'll start to poke at them and you'll see how strong hopper there you see that they've just take off could be entertaining. You see a lot of kids running around playing with them trying to stomp on them spotted lantern flies. I showed up in the United States five years ago right here in Berks County. Nobody knows exactly how some eggs probably hitched a ride on shipping containers across the specific. Now there are hordes of spreading across Pennsylvania and beyond chances are they'll eventually reach most of the country. It's an insect that lays its eggs on on anything including things that get transported hops onto vehicles and can hold on. They don't seem to have any natural enemies here but they found lots of trees with sapped that they like. They've got a buffet out here if they can eat all of these plants and they don't have anything that's down so they're having a good time. They're having a party right. Heather Leach gets panicked calls for people with swarms of lantern flies on their houses or their trees. She tells them don't freak out. These bugs won't bite or sting but but they're not a joke either they really can destroy fix and the people who are seeing this first our vineyard owners like John. Landis vine crest winery west of Allentown uh-huh going. Landis is pressing grapes smiling. Harvest is a good time. He says but then I asked him about the Lantern Flies Anthony Turns series. We've never had a situation like this and forty years. If you start to decimate your vineyard we can cause people to go out of the wiring business. It's actually actually killed funds. Oh yeah definitely kills wise. We walk out into the Vineyard and sure enough. The section next to the woods is infested with lantern flies a lot of vines. It's our dead already. From last year's attack we had lantern pipe just kind of pouring out of these trees last year invading this area here and then down on this hill vineyard owners can spray insecticides protect their crop but that's costly and it can kill helpful insects like bees and ladybugs also it doesn't help with the bigger problem. The damage lantern flies can cause to whole ecosystems leach scientists or worried. They might kill off some trees in forests were also starting to see early indications of displacement of other insects and as a result displacement of birds as well but maybe she says if the problem came from China the solution Russian could to you see back in China. The lantern fly has natural enemies that hold it in check tiny wasps so small you can barely see them scientists from the US this department of Agriculture have brought two kinds of these wasps to the United States. They're under quarantine and a couple of USDA labs like the beneficial insect introduction laugh in Newark Delaware to USDA scientists. Amanda Stout and Kim homer lead the way into the quarantine room. We're all suited up in white overalls head to toe now. Next door is high security this quarantine zone. It's filled with these environmental chambers. They look like big refrigerators. homer opens opens one up and points me towards something in sealed containers. There's a little white thing about a quarter of an inch long with a dark in there that just the cocoon. This is one stage in the life cycle of a lantern flight killing wasp. The wasp lays eggs inside baby spotted lantern flies called nymphs the eggs hatch into larvae that feet on the nips and kilter so maybe they could do this outside. The lab in Pennsylvania's forests sounds kind of crazy releasing an invader to fight another invader but homer says really it could work. There are many many examples of successful and safe introduction of natural enemies. He says it's best when the natural enemies a specialist when it only tax invasive species you're trying to control so now he's trying to figure out whether these wasps only lay their eggs in lantern flies or if they attack. North America's native insects to getting answers. We'll take years in the meantime. The lantern flies will keep on moving. Dan Charles N._p._R. News.
