The Birth of the Animal Rights Movement
"Ernest. Friburg joins us. Now he is the head of the history department at the university of tennessee and his most recent book is called a traitor to his species. Henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement ernest. Thanks for being here my blizzard. Thank you all right. We have to start with the obvious question because this is not a household name for most people who was henry burgh will he was the founder of the aspca and brought the idea of an animal welfare movement animal rights laws to the united states. Right after the civil war in eighteen sixty six. Your area of expertise is nineteenth and twentieth century. Social and cultural history. It's easy to see why your last book. The age of edison looked at the effects of electricity on society. What got you from there to looking at henry bergh and the birth of the animal rights movement. Well in all my work. I think i've been interested in the way this time period. We sort of called the gilded age. The progressive era into world war one the way this shaped the modern world the world that we live in two books ago. I wrote about the origin of civil liberties civil Free speech rights coming out of world war one. The edison book was looking at are both love and hatred of technology. In this case. I was interested in the way. If you look at a an image of nineteenth century city you see horses and of course. There are many many other animals very closely together with with people in the streets but by the nineteen twenty s. That's not the case anymore. In a sense this you know. Our urban environment has been stripped of animals. One historian described it. As as you know we live in a world where in urban environments at least we only have pets and pests and i thought that that captured that that pretty well so i was interested in that transition and i think the animal welfare movement and henry berg's career in particular kind of captures the beginning of some really profound changes in the relationship between humans and animals that started in that time period ended israeli. Still with us today. To what extent is that that change the decline of animals in urban environments. A consequence of the animal rights movement and to what extent is that. Really just about technology industrialisation. Oh it's certainly all those things. I'm not suggesting that the animal welfare movement itself was a driver in any of this but rather was a reflection of its changing sensibilities and in many cases they welcomed the technological changes if steam engines and electricity could replace the horse. That was good for the horse. As far as the animal welfare movement was concerned. so yes they. They're they're really just part of a much wider chains. It's a way to get at people's sensibilities in this time period. This was a time when people came to care much more about animals but at the same time very technology that you're talking about made like pretty grim for many animals as well. The american city was not a friendly place for animals. Describe what a typical city. And let's just use new york because that is where erg lived. What did near city look like at its peak in terms of the number of animals in the city will think about the horses the motive our for the entire city so everything just about relying on horsepower and that meant enormous traffic jams of carriages and wagons and these these railroads that were really the first mass transportation in the city's fundamental to the growth of cities in this time period but then of course there are huge packs of stray dogs roaming in the alleys idea of animal was really developed during this period animal welfare movement. Lots of people are moving into the city from rural areas. And they're bringing with them their own traditions of keeping a cow in the backyard and chickens and and so forth. Pigs are rooting in in the garbage. There really was not very good sanitation control in most neighbourhoods so scrape pigs were part of the scene so it was a it was an enormously rich complicated and dirty mix of humans and animals in this time period.

WHAT IS SO DIFFERENT ABOUT AMAZON THAT MAKES THEM SO SUCCESSFUL?
"Few years ago I was really looking at the the idea of the intersection of risk taking and technology development and started flooring this crazy idea that perhaps the biggest risk of business takes is actually not taking enough risk and so that is led me to researching a lot of different companies some no longer in business some doing quite well what's the difference and that's where I came across Amazon discovered Jeff Bezos shareholder letters and did a deep dive into those letters because I was fascinated actually with how much advice and information he provided because I think I never really sold much too insurance companies but when I did I found them Kinda laggards oh very much so yeah there's it makes sense when you think about it they see all the worst that can happen every day because right accidents or deaths or slip and falls or all of the those kinds of things and so they tend to be very risk averse and that's where this crazy idea I generated about risk-taking in today's world world frankly because technology continues developed so rapidly businesses of all kinds insurance or any others just don't have the time I used to go to examine what how does this impact us what we have to do how do we have to respond and that's I think they're getting disrupted right now aren't they yes very much so a lot of new players coming in a lot of ideas about how to change how the customer experience and frankly that's where you know Amazon has done an amazing job in developing that because some several of my friends that I had worked with went there on the technology side it and when they came out with Aws Amazon web services a lot of people either know about or don't but they I always thought that was a weird move but then it was now it seems obvious but now now it seems obvious and actually as those calls aws a couple of interviews a business miracle for Amazon because what he said was on other innovations and and things they wanted like let's just say the Kendall they released the Kendall in two thousand seven two years later the Nook came out you know two years after they started selling folks online barnes and noble started selling books online as he says kind of you know we would have a two year lead with aws they had a seven-year-old eight and he said that just doesn't happen and I think your point is exactly right who thought about outsourcing computing power that's really all AWACS that's it and one of the largest deals I ever did when I was in sales was to US internetworking this was in two thousand and one no no two thousand yeah right and that was basically a cloud provider what they call back then and applications Service Service ASPCA I use that word much anymore right yeah because we just assume this is even I think it was even before salesforce was found as yes and update basically just had most of their business was Microsoft Exchange just their email servers right and it was such a foreign concept back then well and early two thousands I was talking about ASP's how agencies and brokers could use that and outsource all of their IT infrastructure. Everybody thought I was crazy now I'm not going to hit my data's going to be as else I'm not GonNa do that absolutely well when did you become interested in Amazon as I was as I was doing the research for this book actually the original idea for the book was called the risk of dilemma is that's really what I think businesses faced and I came across Amazon recently and then the shareholder letters and it literally started as a white paper and I showed it to some publishing friends here I live just outside Nashville and several of them came back almost immediately and says this is not a white paper this is a book nobody's really done and I did again and looked at it but nobody's really done a deep dive like this into the lenders themselves and so research you know lots of story behind kind of how it came into the book but it was a officially published in the September and has really taken it off I mean I think people are really ready donating with two things one is I was able to extract fourteen principles that I believe are throughout how Amazon through that I think can apply at any business and people are just fascinated with bazo cinemas John and we all use them we made like him or not but I think my point of view is aren't you curious how we did it twenty five years the fastest company ever to reach a hundred billion dollars and sales and I just became curious how did they do it and what's even more astounding to me is actually laid out his plan in the shareholder letters so I call them hidden in plain sight and that's it because people think it's some secret now he thinks differently that is for sure but it's and again why did he do that I mean a lot of people would go no that's our secret sauce and but I think he he has a different understanding and frankly I think at his heart he's a teacher he likes helping others and so yeah so that's where the the book came from and let's talk about those principles is there any hierarchy to them or the autonomous so the fourteen principles standing on their own and work with each other hill and I've broken them down into what I call four cycles so past build accelerate in scale and I believe any business whether they're of startup or been around for fifty ears are always going through these different cycles because even a well established business has to test out new ideas new products platforms new services to find out is this gonNa work does it resonate with customers or not and then they build they accelerate growth once they've got a firm foundation and then they scale and again different principles apply depending on where the business is in those areas and US walk through it can you give an exam simple of maybe one part of their business that went through that process well Amazon let's just take test I think what's unique at Amazon they are always experimenting they are never resting on aws oh now we've got it now we don't have to worry about it anymore and they're all even within aws they're always inventing an innovating and actually one of my principles is called practice dynamic invited engine and innovation and so am that that's a really a core concept at Amazon the other one that I highlight m it is principle number one which is encouraged successful failure and that is typically not a mindset in a business and the bigger the business the less that is practiced because everybody knows you need to innovate today yeah I think that's a common yeah we need to do that the unfortunate part is yeah we want you to innovate but you'd better be right yeah right and not fail I'm convince people aren't afraid of failure they're actually afraid of the consequences of failure you're right and so encouraged successful failure is something that's Court Amazon in fact Bazo says in the latter's a couple of places that he I believe Amazon is the best place to fail because they have a process in place to learn from those failures and move forward and he says in the last letter that he's written two thousand eighteen that as Amazon grows the size of our failures the need to grow because if we aren't pushing the envelope on these are my words if we aren't pushing the envelope the impact on the business isn't it us and what you hope and again he says we don't do it Willy Nilly right but we're intentional but by its very nature a new experiment you're going to fail because if you're not it's not an experiment and is there any one failure that you've noticed that you think they're gonna either retry the phone or well I so I talked about the phone in the book most people don't even realized that Amazon actually built and released a fire phone right we hear about the fire TV in the fire tablet but they had a phone his pet project released in two thousand fourteen utter failure and in fact at one point they lowered the price to ninety nine cents and they couldn't give them away life because I mean think about it thousand fourteen we all ready had our phones smartphones were well established what could they bring that was different got a couple of technology things that were intriguing but not enough to pry android or out of somebody's an that last quarter of two thousand fourteen they wrote off one hundred seventy eight million dollars in inventory they couldn't move to the failure now where's the success the group that created their heart the device division it's actually called lab one twenty six which created the fire phone when onto also then create the echo Ville though Amazon Echo Alexa worked together echoes the hardware Alexis of machine learning that provides the answers so that is looking like it's going to be one of their successes fill and so again it's that idea of yeah we fail but what we learn from it and what can we take and into something

Right. Okay. But a lot of people think that, but they just kind of go home and go on with their lives. But you decided you wanted to do something about it.

The story of the New Jersey couple of race hundreds of thousands of dollars for a homeless vet after he did something just wonderful for them an act of kindness, which was returned by them and hundreds of thousands of dollars were raised. And then it just went dark. It went south. Well, wait to hear the end of the story. I'll share that with you after four o'clock this Saturday, we're going to be out at Carlin park for pause in the park. If your dog lover if your animal lover, this is the place for you bring your dog out there. You can actually come out if you don't have a dog or dogs. Doves up for adoption, and it's a free family event. It's really a great family event for you. And your, Pat and your kids and this food and music and all sorts of good stuff. And there's also a pet psychic. I can't wait for that. I'm I'm obsessed with it. Anyway, there's a doggie racetrack a pet photo booth the whole thing so come on out. And it'll be a good time. All right. So I mentioned that and Thailand with this. I didn't get my invite to the AS PCA humane awards luncheon today, the what the ASPCA humane awards. You know, what that is the SPCA is the that's the the adoption that's for for better option. Okay. If you haven't heard of that I've never heard that acronym before. Yeah. Yeah. But I know that the people that. Yes. Advocates. These are advocates for for animals, and it's not pita. It's just it's like, the, you know, the legitimate pitas illegitimate. But I'm just saying this has been around forever anywhere. They have that gets their awards luncheon. Like, it's a you know, they give awards two dogs. It's like the dog Oscars. So one of the dogs that won an award is a Doug. But in bear bear, the labrador bear won this award for sniffing out subway pitchman. Jared Fogel kiddie porn habit. That's how we became famous. He will he I guess he got an award would lead a list of furry honorees. It says here at the awards luncheon today bear was once a homeless mother who helped authorities locate digital storage items in search of Fogel, Indiana, homes, only the went into there, and they try to find Jared Fogel 's, you know, child porn files. They couldn't do it until got the dog in there. It'd be a file smell differently than than something else. I mean, the obviously the dogs have a sense of smell. That's heightened I guess a thousand times more than a human's, but how is the dog able to sniff out the the child porn. I don't really know. If it's all electric, you wouldn't I didn't know that a files had different. So saying, I don't know how I guess I it was they were searching for the files they knew that there were files hidden somewhere. They couldn't find like physical files pictures, I guess the digital storage. I guess he had digital storage items, and they couldn't get them. Maybe they found like his computer because it sounds like him. Maybe maybe that's what it was. Yeah. 'cause dogs can smell you from a mile away. So you got his big break in in this type of work with this particular story and this happened in two thousand fifteen just now they're rewarding him that's a little late. If you ask me. Anyway. Yeah, he's this guy for fifteen years, but you have bear the labrador. Thank. I wonder if they do like a regular award ceremony. A ring.

"One in doubt, please contact your vetinarian or even the ASPCA animal poison control center to verify if the dose is correct. If you notice after a few doses your dog's not getting any better. Or if the swelling is getting a lot worse. Your dog is having difficulty breathing your cats. Having a reaction please get to the veterinarian right away. And that's because we're gonna use stronger drugs that we give intervene to be able to treat it. So if you're hesitant to treat your dog at home, no worries just get your e vet right away. We'll know how to treat it. My last step is if you're dog's having an allergic reaction, and you bring 'em home from the ER vet sometimes bathing them will actually help. And I will oftentimes recommend bathing with a liquid dish soap like, Don. I love Don. Because it's really gentle. In fact, they actually used on to help remove oil from wildlife during oil spills, I like dogs to be bathed with Don. Because sometimes there's actually what we call a contact allergy. So your dog may actually have pollen or mold or some type of chemical on that may be triggering allergic reaction. So as long as your dog is stable once you get back from the vet. It's worth considering bathing your dog with a liquid dish soap like Don just to get. That pollen or allergen off, thankfully, the majority of the times when I see an allergic reaction and a dog. It's just gonna be mild. Yes. The facial. Swelling looks terrible. Yes. They're puffy eyes making really heartbroken. But the good thing is the prognosis is excellent check with your ER vet get them to that right away. Get them started on Benadryl or.

Thanks so much. Really? Appreciate. Well, we're thrilled to have you on rich. You've had an amazing career twenty five years in the nonprofit sector really helping to build a better world with the American Red Cross. I know you've worked the main society Broward County ASPCA north shore animal league world society for the protection of animals. I mean, the list is stunning. And I know back in twenty eleven Hegi atoms animal rescue league was so lucky and fortunate to get you a -secutive director tell us a little bit about your background. And then I want to know when did you? I know you were going to devote your life to to animals sure in in your kind. But yeah. So I've been in the nonprofit sector for almost thirty years ever since I got out of college went to work at the Red Cross. And it was just ended up being my passion. It's not what I intended to be doing after college, but just fell in love with nonprofit work. And and I'm just fortunate to orients Peggy Adams. You know, my first introduction to animal welfare was at the humane society of Broward County at Fort Lauderdale and ever since I've been working with animal welfare organizations around the country, as as you mentioned, that's wonderful. I mean such incredible work, but I have to go back to your early years rich. What was your first animal that was in your life? Because I know there had to be a very special first pet that helped to ensure. I mean, we had we had a number. You know, first pet was well the cat Jenny beautiful black cat. Yes. She does. She was our first family companion animal way, way way back. Let got things started. We had hamsters. I've had dogs a great dog named Tammy growing up. It was probably we might use of animal that I that. I grew closely to not really loved that dog. Just great member of our family, which I have to ask you where did you grow up? Did you grow up from Florida? No, no. I grew up in Rhode Island. Like, maybe many many of us here in Florida had dreams of warmer climate and gradually made my way down to Florida after about ten years in Washington DC finally made my way down to Florida with my family. That's wonderful. I tell you it's cold day in Washington. So it's really nice to be an in sunny Florida today. That's for sure. So I think he made the best choice. I love wash. Washington. I love it. I love it too. Rich Peggy Adams is an amazing organization here in Palm Beach county. Can you tell our listeners a little bit about what you do Peggy Adams animal rescue league and who was Peggy Adams? So the animal rescue league now called Peggy atoms animal rescue we started in nineteen twenty four group of women in Palm Beach felt like they needed to do something to address an issue that played a lot of Florida back in the day of people coming down during the winter months and then heading north and sadly heading back north without their animals and leaving their animals behind. So again back in ninety twenty four these women in Palm Beach wanted to do something to solve that problem. They started a shelter Inc. The animal rescue Ige in nineteen twenty five we are the longest continuously operating in Milwaukee organization here in Palm Beach county and Peggy atoms. Good question. Where's the name? Come from. Week. We hear that a lot. We get asked that question quite a bit. The Peggy Adams was a woman who lived in Palm Beach and an animal lover and will advocate passed away suddenly unexpectedly her husband knowing how much she cared for. And how compassionate she was. And how dedicated she was personally to animal welfare approached the animal rescue league and asked if he made a significant contribution towards the organization's endowment if they would consider naming the organization after his wife, and so that is when it became Peggy atoms animal rescue week about forty years ago. Wow. What a great story and a great tribute to a woman. I I love it. It was her husband came to the organization to honor her in that very special way. That's fantastic. Well, I think it's amazing. What you do every year the rescue league provides services to over forty five thousand cats dogs puppies and kittens each year, which. That's amazing. What problems what issues are you saving with overpopulation and with animal welfare in Palm Beach county right now. So like like most communities, we have we have an area where there still is a challenge of there being too many animals and the bottom line is too many animals resulting in two Nian move ending up at the government run shelter here. In Palm Beach county, where there is a lack of resources lack of space to care for all these animals in so rescue week, our focus is to prevent animals from ending up at the county shelter area and making sure that we are working towards saving the life of every single adoptable animal here in Palm Beach county. Thank you, Adam has benefited lives since twenty four of more than one million animals in history. But I think what's what's been happening over the last five six years. Her Palm Beach county has really made a Mark here in the community. And is really I think showing. In other parts of Florida in other parts of the country. What can be done if the local non profit animal welfare in unity joins together with the government run operations onto solve the problem of pet overpopulation in our community. It's wonderful and part of this effort is really reflected in countdown to zero which is for listeners now amazing community collaboration to with mission of ending euthanasia. Adoptable animals in Palm Beach county by twenty twenty four which can you share with us? How countdown this zero came about? Yeah. It's, you know, Comey county was in many ways, your typical community, the nonprofit the animal welfare community and the government run agency had not worked closely together pretty much at any time over the decades. And so we made a point to reach out to the county and just give you a little background the county shelter is the only. Shelter. That is an open admission shelter needing their doors are always open and any animal that walks in that door, they take it regardless of its condition. Sub perceive a lot of broken animals animals that unfortunately are close to death. But all in all of our other animal, welfare organizations Palm Beach county. You know, when when we are full, we're full, and we can't take any other animals. So we approached the county in twenty thirteen Eddie closer to the end of twenty twelve and said, you know, we really want to work together. And what we what we call getting off a hamster wheel. You know, just doing the same thing over and over and over again, let's see we could work together to solve this problem of too many animals being euthanized every year here in Palm Beach county. And the county thankfully tends to be a relatively progressive community county government tends to be relatively progressive government. We have a very progressive leader at Palm Beach county animal care and control, which is the government run shelter. And she Diane survey saw the value in a partner. Ship between the county in rescuing. And so it took about about eighteen months for us to work with the county to come up with countdown to zero. And so like you said countdown to zero is this initiative that was officially launched in twenty fourteen February twenty four team. So we're coming up on the fourth anniversary of the official launch of countdown to zero with a goal of saving the life of every animal in Palm Beach county by the year twenty twenty four that was a huge step to get the county. Any local government to commit to a goal Batbold when thousands of animals were dying unnecessarily twenty thirteen that was a huge step for Palm Beach county in a step that very few communities anywhere in the country has been able to take it's amazing. What is the what's the secret sauce that makes home beach county, and and the community partners here? Visionary. Because you know, I don't see this being replicated in too many communities around our country. And that's an objective are one of our objectives is to obviously succeed in our effort here in Palm Beach county, but also to educate other communities in Florida, and beyond to think about adopting some of the practices that we've adopted let me give you a little bit of a sense of to how bad the situation was just a few just a few years ago before we initiated the countdown to zero initiative there were a total of nearly eight thousand actually more than eight thousand cats and dogs that were euthanized at the county run shelter back in twenty thirteen fast bowler today. Four years later. We are getting very very close closer and closer to that goal. Saving every adoptable life here. In Palm Beach county euthanasia rate at the county shelter has dropped nearly seventy percent in those. Four short years, the real number for people to to look at what does that mean in real lives saved and from twenty thirteen to twenty seventeen that equated to five thousand five hundred fewer animals in a one year period of being euthanized. So five thousand five hundred fewer animals lost their lives and twenty seventeen compared to just four years ago. Unbelievable. What a victory or getting there. We're getting there. We still got a ways to go. But we think we're going to we're going to reach that goal. Upstaging every adoptable angle by the twenty twenty four well in advance of twenty twenty four and you ask the question as to you know, what does it take to do this? And it takes willing partners is what I would say the bottom line it requires collaboration in a willingness to collaborate when we reached out to the county held on that, you know, we sincerely wanted to work together. I think it was received. I've been told it's it was received with a great deal of skepticism, you know, decade after decade after decade of the county and the nonprofit community there was no collaboration. So there was a significant degree of skepticism on the part of the county. And there was some skepticism on the part of of some people here at Peggy Adams as to whether or not this was going to be worth. While whether this was going to work or not. So you know, it was almost one of those times where all the stars aligned. I had a board of directors that supported this approach to the county I had a counterpart at the county shelter. Diane surveyed the director there wanted to see real change. And and knew that if we kept doing what we've been doing every year year after year after year thousands of animals would keep losing their lives year after year after year event. It was the county government, you know, that was that was huge that the county had faith in the director of the county shelter in Diane and respected her enough to take a leap of faith in setting this pretty bold goal for community that was euthanizing more than eight thousand animals each and every year. So, you know. Some members of the county government embraced this initiative because they are animal lovers. And then there were other members of the county commission that as much as they appreciated the lifesaving goal what really got their attention. I think was when we laid out to them the waste of taxpayer dollars to take an animal and simple euthanize. It we pointed out to the county government that they were spending four hundred dollars for every animal that would being euthanized at the county shelter knocking millions of dollars being wasted. And when governments are struggling each and every day to allocate tax resources for very important programs..

Lucky and fortunate to get you a -secutive director tell us a little bit, about your background? And then I want to know when did you I know you were going to devote your. Life to, to animals sure in in your. Kind but yeah so I've been, in the nonprofit Sector, or almost thirty years ever since I got out of college went to work at the Red. Cross and it was just ended up being my passion it's about what I intended to be doing after college but just fell in. Love with nonprofit work and and I'm just. Fortunate to be worrying Peggy Adams you know my first introduction to animal welfare. Was at, the humane society Broward, County at Fort Lauderdale and ever since I've been working with animal welfare organizations around the country as as you mentioned that's wonderful. I mean such incredible work that I have to go back to your early, years rich what? Was your first animal that was in your life because I know there had to be a. Very special, I pet that helps to data I mean we had we had, a number you know I was with the cat Jenny beautiful black cat yes she goes she was, our first, family companion animal way way we back that got things started, we had hamsters I've had dogs had a great dog named Tammy growing up it was probably we might use in will. That I. That I grew that closely to not really loved that dog just great member of our. Family which I have to ask you where did you? Grow up did you grow up in Florida no no. I grew up in Rhode Island Like many many many about in Florida. Had dreams of warmer climate and gradually made my way. Down to Florida after about ten years in Washington DC I finally made my way down to Florida with my family that's wonderful I tell you it's cold day in Washington so it's really nice to be in sunny Florida today, that's for sure so I think, you made the best. Choice Washington, I love, it I love it, too rich, Peggy Adams is an amazing, organization here, in Palm. Beach, county can. You tell our listeners a little bit about what. You do Peggy Adams animal rescue. League and was. Peggy Adams so the animal rescue league now called Peggy atoms. Rescue we started in nineteen twenty four group of women, in Palm Beach felt like they needed to do something to address and issues that plagued a, lot of Florida back in the, day of people coming down? During the winter months and then? Heading, north. And sadly heading back north without Out their animals leading their animals behind so again back in. Ninety twenty four these women in Palm Beach wanted to do. Something to. Solve that problem they started a shelter Inc, the animal rescue Ige in nineteen twenty five we are, the longest continuously. Operating in Milwaukee organization here in Palm Beach county. In Peggy atoms. Good question where's the name. Come from week we hear that a lot we get asked. That question quite a bit the Peggy Adams was a woman who, lived in Palm Beach in an animal lover animal. Advocate passed away suddenly unexpectedly her husband knowing how much. She cared for and how compassionate she was dedicated she was personally to animal welfare approached the animal rescue league and asked if he made a significant contribution towards the organization's endowment if they would consider naming the organization after his, wife and so that is when, it became Peggy atoms Animal rescue league about. Forty years ago wow what a great story and a great tribute to a woman I I love it it was. Her husband, came to the organization to, honor her in that very special way that's fantastic but I think it's. Amazing what you do every. Year the rescue league provides services to over. Forty five thousand cats dogs puppies and kittens each year which that's amazing what problems what issues. Are you. Saving with overpopulation? And with animal? Welfare in Palm Beach county. Right now so like like most communities we. Have we have an area where there still is a challenge of there being too. Many animals in the. Bottom, line is too, many animals resulting in to me and move ending up at the. Government run shelter here in Palm Beach county where there is a lack of resources lack of space to care for all these animals in so rescue league our focus is to prevent. Animals from ending up at the county shelter area And making sure that we are working. Towards saving the life of every single adoptable animal here in Palm Beach county Has benefited lives in, twenty four. Of more than one million animals into history but I think what's what's been happening over, the last, five six years her Palm Beach county has really made a. Mark here in the community and is really I think showing other parts, of Florida in other parts of the country what can be done if the local non profit animal. Welfare in. Unity Joyce together with the government run operations onto solve the problem, of pet overpopulation on the art community it's wonderful and part of this effort is really reflected in countdown to zero which is, for listeners now amazing community collaboration? To mission of ending euthanasia adoptable? Animals, in, Palm Beach, county by twenty twenty four which, can you share, with us how countdown to zero came about yeah it's you know Comey county was in many ways your typical community the nonprofit Animal welfare. Community and, the government run agency had not worked closely together pretty much at any time over the decades and so we made a. Point to reach out to the county and just to give, you a. Little bit background the county shelter is the only shelter that you can open admission shelter, needing their, doors are always open and any animal that walks in that. Door they take in regardless of its condition receive a lot of broken, animals animals that unfortunately are close to death but all in all of our other animal welfare organizations. Palm Beach. County you know when we are full we're full and we can't, take any other animals so we approached the county in twenty thirteen eighty closer to the end of twenty twelve and said you, know we really wanna work together? And what we what we call? Getting, off, a hamster, wheel you know just doing the, same thing over? And over Over and, over again let's see we can work together Solve this problem of too many, animals being euthanized, every year here in Palm Beach county and. The county thankfully tends to be a relatively. Progressive community the county government has be relatively progressive government we have a very, progressive leader at Palm Beach county animal care and control which is the government run shelter and see Diane survey saw. The value in a partnership between the county and rescuing so it took about about eighteen months for us to work. With the, county to come, up with countdown to zero and so like you said countdown zero is this initiative that. Was officially launched in twenty fourteen February twenty four team so we're coming up.

"Once those kind of phase out of the line, do we go back to a world where the ESP is is lower. Can apple continue to charge these premiums if all the phones look like this lots of questions, right? Because what's so interesting about this phone cycle is that they've broken every single pattern that they had. There is not a seven s there's an eight verse time they've had to kind of two flagships right that they had three new phones in totally eight plus in the ten. This is new territory. And if rumors are believed this year is going to be just as nutty with different things coming in at different sizes and price point. So I I'm curious how this holds up and if anything can really hurt apple financially, like from a stock perspective, it'll be this iphone ASPCA sliding back down. So his thing I agree. If you write proof is in the next revisions. What happens with the new phones now, the rumors suggest only phones, right? Like all new look, all new phones, right, which is exciting. Yeah, I think I think apple well, apple very confident because that guidance is sixty to sixty two billion dollars for the next quarter. So the beginning at the iphone cool toys, their biggest quarter of the year, right. That's one one. That depends too. When the iphone goes on sale, there are times where the iphone is like basically the last week of the quarter, so it doesn't make a necessarily big hospital making a difference because there. Expecting a very big jump. They're expecting a basically ten billion on peers on new max, get new maxima, man. It's going to have a. I have a good point. I'm trying to make here. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Der expect. So like so year on year for q. q. four, twenty seventeen to q. four. Twenty sixteen, right? So when the iphone debuted, right. Well, kind of the new iphones went on sale this I because I don't think the ten was involved in that one. It was a six billion dollars a year on year increase that they did there. They are guiding guidance is ten billion dollars. Potentially. An apple always comes under the guidance or at least very history of that. So there I mean, so we can expect. I don't know like an eleven twelve billion dollar increase yearly. Think something is going to be a big deal this fall. They're very confident in the iphone because it has to be the iphones. Nothing else can generate that. So money airpower. Every single person who has an eye on the planet. Right. So so whilst I, I appreciate the jokes that was the point now when it to make like it's a really good point Mike, and and you're right. Apple is conservative when they give that guidance because when companies lose value, it's when they missed their guidance and apple plays that a little safely. I think we can expect all the phones. We'll go and sandwich, September this time around and going away. I think they ever wanted to wait until November for the ten just took longer than than they had. So that's that's kind of where I think that like big things are going to happen. And and yes, I agree. If the ASPCA changes, it would be a shame for them, but I think they're going to do so much money. And so many unit sold that that will be forgotten about you if it goes down right? Like that they will. They will absolutely knock out of the park with the the, the role numbers. So that's the the iphone ten was a success, right? Apple want lying when they were saying Kohl's, it was like the best selling phone. So interesting to me like especially Bloomberg, they publish these calls like an hour before that is their guidance recently. It's been like really wrong every time. Yeah, like and I think that they need to spend some time thinking about that. Do they really want those page views an hour before or day before, whatever about the iphone ten is dying. The game is. You're right, you're genius. And if you're wrong, it gets buried in the other news is always funny to me like a follow a couple of industry analysts into too many. 'cause take too much of a a couple. And it's funny to me when they like apple said it was this billion. My estimate was this and it's like Egypt trying to show how smart you all stand. Right? Like it's okay..
