It's a brilliant storyteller determination to do that Race the whale falling off costing the window. Which would have been a remarkable story that determination really kind of shows throughout the book with the The different challenges that you faced a different points Taking big career decisions like moving to japan and Joining audi when it may be looking so good for that program based on a fairly mixed forms and ninety nine hundred nine but the book brady shows i think is the thinking side of tom. Kristensen the driver oz fascinated to radio big knowing points which he said it in. The doctor didn't even really existed for the most of your time at audi and i'll just read them for reference. Because i didn't really interesting points for anybody who's listening to know dr tolman. What he thought was was important describes his as a manifesto nuts. Define you know you'll go make apparent that everyone define yourself subgoals on the main go defined roles of rules of the same time respect others potential and worth throughout the process prepared be honest exhibit discipline and dedication believing yourself and give others self-confidence sherry responsibility take responsibility exhibit strength and the fire pays proper preparation prevents pull performance the tom. When did this really stopped to take tangible. Foam from just being points that you picked up along your way to something you actually wrote down and really to follow. I think it really started in two thousand and one. We came to see bring the first race of the year and then it said five p on the rear wing and that was Michelle picard the gearbox mechanic on on the car Really a good mechanic and he explained. You don't know the five then. He explained the story of preparation prevents poor performance and that was sold the the manifest sort of from the the mechanical side. The people who was working on the car but over time and over years. I mean i i ll among as you describe before With michaela brenta stephan johansson berry expense. Dry us and over the years. I became more experienced and also younger teammates were would coming in. I would say the most balanced t module was of course with within alan capello and mcnish. We were more or less similar experience on similar h over the years particularly when i with bentley. We have guy smith coming along i'd say. Gr coming in with with team. Go and over these. It was new mechanics as well and then the following year with champion also expense teammates in in the way with. Jj michael verna but again new mechanic so it was i think it was in those processes of these years after my My first is with them with without his sport. ended was happening a lot of the travel. It was more or less to visualize problems or sometimes it was some. You can say confrontations or you can save. Potentially that was something. Which i thought could maybe be a problem when it really got down to the to racing or was sometimes maybe a little bit alba starting could be a little bit of you know within the group a little bit of blaming that. Let's say we need them to be better. He'll obese aversa so it was more to get these. Let's say putting person's hands on this sort of culture to make sure that we never topped out of the perfect teamwork. And i. I just started to to mature that Over the over the years and every year was of course different. Sometimes i didn't need to think a lot about it. And all those years i i very much sometimes felt stepped in to to sort of try to optimize things or even acute times. Maybe to to to change things going forward. I've always deal your Victory with team go in two thousand floor. The mom was a special one doctor. Orrick rates at very highly. I think he he. He is put it as the the most impressive significant best. Whatever all of your nine. But i just think how how team was turned from. Sort of team didn't look particularly goods in the lms as it was the pneumonia jerry series To the team. The the one woman. And i know that you played a very crucial part in in molding. The team do you. Would you say your philosophy paid a very active role that year in in two thousand. Four with the the go. Audi r eight. I would say that it was we we we have to make sure that they believed in winning and and and there was of course it was. I think eighty percent of the mechanics were japanese. They came over from japan. Lived neang start working on the car being completely different and difficult environment for for them so it was very much getting them confidence and self confidence enough always to i would say. Sometimes it was to give the right feedback on the car. They would set up the car. And and we would you would ask excite me this the numbers on the set up the car but they were they were mentioning measuring the the the the the main different than some of the european state and in many ways was you had to go through that and really sometimes have to be very strong with the with words and at the same time you had to indulge that both disciplined but also the culture of over having them be leaving that they could win so we were trying to give all of that suddenly also dindo and say gee played a very important role in that joe. House was there as an engineer. So i would say it was. It was very much the the the the teamwork which brought the team forward. But the yes. That was changed a few persons Around.

It's a way better way to watch. This is where the story gets. Even weirder while the world rally championship was a series that consisted of twelve events. Only ten of those events counted towards the manufacturers championship racing is so dumb just so many arbitrary rules. Yeah it's just like the coolest thing it's the coolest thing but every form of racing has too many confusing rules. That like require you to be an expert like you have to study so much like you can watch basketball. Nba like oh those guys are trying to get that into their tight. I can watch set football. Those guys are trying to get over there. Baseball guys trying to get around cool. Oh they want more guys to get around nice. And but then there's there's like little things within that that you can be like a super huge fan but like racing isn't even like oh that guy's i i guess it is. I don't know the points are dumb. The fact that there are points or dumb to events sweden and cote d'ivoire or ivory coast only count for the drivers championship launch. She had declined to compete in both of these events as well as the safari rally. Kenya giving hannu mikkola a significant advantage in the driver's championship in a season where audi and launch e drivers occupied thirty of the thirty six total podium spots the other teams were hardly even a factor so while by the end of the season hanno mccullough was pulling away and points and appeared poised to clinch the drivers championship lancia surprising winds in monte carlo increase had kept them in the race for the manufacturers championship the next race was in new zealand and it was there that audis luck went from bad to worse michelle mouton had been shut out of a win thus far in the season it was clear that audis car was not the reliable beasted had been in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when michelle mouton said that the cog gave you so much confidence you thought you could fly in greece. Only one of the quadras had even finished the event. what was clear in new zealand. Was that when the audi car was functioning. It was the fastest car but once again. The car proved unreliable. The engine of the car. Michelle was piloting failed causing her. Not only her first win of the season but completely shutting out of scoring even a single point in new zealand. Meanwhile walter role won his third event once again lagging behind in his launch. Until audi's own mistakes cost them the win at the next two races. How new nikola finally found his stride winning in argentina and finland putting himself within spitting distance of the drivers championship. He dreamed of for decades walter role for his part wouldn't even go to finland because he didn't like the courses notorious jumps don't like zig jobs in his words quote. If i wanted to fly. I would have been violet. Roasted just got roasted. Finland just got rolled for her part. Michelle tom was doing more swimming than flying. Finland event was called the one thousand lakes rally. When her quattro caught firemen race she put the blaze out by intentionally driving her car into one of the lakes. Elia in cool. She's cool so. I wanna arm wrestle michelle mitchell. I wish like michelle mouton was like my parents friend. Yeah and like her and her husband and her like navigator would you like we'd go to a cabin every year like on vacation every year like she's like my vacation it and we started arm wrestling when i was like a little child. And she's just like crush me. And then when i was like fourteen i beat her for the first time and then i eventually it would go from like you know when i was a kid. She'd let me beat her. And then when i was an adult and she was like an older lady i would joke and let her be me. That's what i wish my relationship with michelle thought about this before. It seems like I really wish michelle. Martin was like an aunt figure in my life. Yes one like the the cool aunt that gives you like a knife for christmas. Yes yes she gives me. She gives me christmas presents. The we don't talk a lot Obviously we see each other every summer But always a christmas gift and it's always a gift that like my mom is like michelle And she would like you know. Give me a several of her wine as she drinks. She drinks wine because she's french Yeah it sounds like a great fantasy would have been great well anyway. The world rally championship now reached san remo italy the second to last race to count towards the manufacturers championship before the a. c. rally in great britain traditional season ending event the race which span from the french border to the coast of tuscany was a mix of paved and dirt track just like in previous races. The paved section which came earlier gave launch drivers a distinct advantage in advantage. Excuse me once again. The audis were plagued by mysterious failure including yet another fire under the hood of hannah nichols car. The heck although audi caught up a bit in the dirt wasn't enough and atlanta captured all three podium positions. The dominant result meant that launcher had sealed. The manufactures championship. the scrubby. Italian team had not just beaten. The germans dead dominated winning despite not even entering the safari rally earlier in the season somehow the roles reversed an audi at turned out to have less reliable cars launcher declined to even enter the cars in the ira c. rally. Which did give out a major consolation. Prize hanamaka love won the drivers championship handily. But one role had only competed. In half of the seasons events. The launcher three. Seven dominance was the end of an era in rally. No two wheel drive car would ever win a rally championship again. Although audi and all wheel drive had lost the battle they would win. The war in nineteen ninety-four walter role joined outy alongside hannu mikkola stig lundquist and michelle mouton and the super team dominated the field easily winning the manufacturers championship any make died in february of this year at the age of seventy eight. Walter role is still alive with position at porsche as a senior test driver for their road cars. That's fun the famously selective noncompetitive champion still drives fast. Just not under a cool footnote. Is that role in. Michael over both inducted into the rally hall of fame the same year. Two thousand eleven class. Two thousand eleven. You know what. I'm saying that's me although show is still around as a company. They haven't competed in the world rally championship since nineteen ninety-two the make one car and had super weird the absalon asterisks. It's called page break. Despite the long however they still have more manufacturers championship titles than any other car maker. Audi similarly has not competed in. Wrc for many years but for both companies their rally heritage is clearly a great source of pride. I mean that's like the whole thing about is like all wheel drive That's kind of like their thing right. Yeah yeah it's called. quanta reno. Punk seeming unity. cointreau casey. my girlfriend has a q. Three with quattro We started like. Yeah your car house. All wheel drive. And she's like she's like really kwacha means and she's like oh. I thought that was speakers..
HEADLINE CAPITALIZATION NTSB Releases Preliminary Report on Fatal Tesla Crash Capitalize Words With Four or More Letters (Associated Press style) Capitalize Words with Five or More Letters (APA Style) Do Not Capitalize Words Based on Length (Chicago Manual of Style) Capitalize Major Words and Those With Four or More Letters (MLA Style) You are likely here because you need a headline checker to make sure your title and headlines are properly written. That's exactly what Headline Capitalization does. It's a free tool to make sure what you capitalize online for publications like blogs and news articles, or for academic papers, is correct. This headline checker should help you to correctly format all your titles in the future. It's important to accurately capitalize titles and headlines for articles and papers. Headline Capitalization is a free headline checker that correctly capitalizes titles for all your writing. Article Title and Headline Capitalization Rules When it comes to creating headlines and titles for articles, it can get confusing what words to capitalize and what words should remain lower case. There are several styles of title and headline capitalization which different publications may use. For the most part, there are general rules that all publications follow with a few minor deviations between them. For those who write, it's important to understand these rules about which words to capitalize when creating headlines and titles. Major Headline Capitalization Styles There are four major title capitalization styles. These are: AP Style APA Style Chicago Style MLA Style There is no single authoritative style guide when it comes to capitalizing headlines and titles, although some are used for certain types of writing. For example, the Associated Press Stylebook (AP Style) is often used by news organizations, the Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago Style) is more comprehensive for in-depth writing, and the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (MLA style) is used for academic papers. While this is where the different styles are usually used, it's not mandatory to use a particular style for a particular type of writing. If you are unsure of which style to use, the best method is to seek out which style the course, editor, or teacher prefers so that you know, and then use that specific style. If you're in a certain field, you should learn the style that's most prominent in your field. For example, the AP Style for those in journalism, and the MLA style if you're in academics. In all cases, it's best to ask for each project to make sure since each style has its own rules. General Headline Style Rule: Title Case How to write headlines and titles is usually referred to as "headline style" or "title case." As mentioned, all styles are not the same, but there are a few general rules they all follow. These are: Capitalize the first word in the title Capitalize the last word in the title Capitalize the important words in the title The first two points are clear cut and easy to follow. The next question is, what are considered "important" words in a headline? In most cases, they include the following words: Adjectives (beautiful, large, hopeful) Adverbs (forcefully, silently, hurriedly) Nouns (computer, table, manuscript) Pronouns (they, she, he) Subordinating conjunctions (as, so, that) Verbs (write, type, create) Words in Headlines That Aren't Capitalized The above words are the ones generally capitalized, so what words are usually written in lowercase when creating headlines and titles? These tend to be shorter words (under five letters long). The following types of words are generally not capitalized: Articles (a, an, the) Coordinating Conjunctions (and, but, for) Short (less than 5 letters) Prepositions (at, by, from) Alternative Headline Capitalization: Sentence Case One style of headline and title capitalization which doesn't follow the rules is Sentence Case style. This is where editors decide to write titles as if they were a typical sentence. In this case, the first word of the headline would be capitalized while the rest of the title would be in lower case, except for proper nouns. Below are a few examples of Sentence Case style headlines: How to properly write article titles A review of a hike at Grand Canyon national park The best value meal when eating at Chipotle Referencing Titles of Publications No matter what style of headline capitalization you decide to use in your writing, if you ever reference the title of a book, article, or journal, you should write the title of it as it has been written, even if it happens to be a different style than you're using for your writing. You should not change them to fit your style, and they should always be written as they appear in the publication. Copyright © Headline Capitalization 2021. All rights reserved.

The Impact of Australian High Performance Computing in the Coming decade
"Joining us in the podcast. Today we have professor shawn smith that director of national computational infrastructure and see i and he's also a professor or computation of nanno matera science and technology at australian national university. Professor smith is also a fellow of the royal australian chemical institute a fellow american is association for the advancement of science a fellow of the institute of chemical engineers and he will be sharing with us the highlights of high performance computing at nci. Thank you professor for joining us in the podcast. Today i thought we kick off by taking a look at the evolution and development in australia. Research backed by high performance computing and data infrastructure which plays a pivotal role in national research. But also have wide ranging economic and social impacts. I'm so for example as you pointed out in your presentation at supercomputing asia Looking at the year two thousand twenty the events challenging for many with the pandemic but particularly so for australia with the bushfire which i thought i very salient. Examples of where policymakers and help provide as neat fayza reliable information to get a sense of what is yet to come to better manage the situation but beyond these examples is also cancer research. Physics et cetera. So for our listeners. Can you tell us more about you know audi australia. Research are backed. By high performance. Computing infrastructure have evolved over the decades. You certainly are one constructive way to approach that question. Jain may be. If if i summarize the way in which australia to tijuana one phones compute facilities have evolved over the past decade which gives a flavor of how that the sick to hebron australia has developed in the major demise signs that have been really key in driving it forwards so we have to tier one facilities in australia One is the australian at the australian national university campus. Here in canberra the other one is the posey supercomputing center in person west australia. So both of these centers were set up in their initial in the current model as it were nearly a decade ago and when nci was stood up in its current form. The australian national university has long long history of computing. But the carrots. Nci was put in place around about twenty eleven two thousand twelve and we build a new data center on campus and put in the previous supercomputing facility which was called ryan now when i was set up with financial input from the federal government. They then we're really looking for a degree of leverage of their investment And so the federal contributions to were helped to facilitate the standing up of the big facility and the big shane And the new data center per se and they contribute a certain amount of our national expenses. But i asked us dan to negotiate the larger part of operating expenses. With am i just stike holders. And in the case of nci. This was done by substantial collaboration with four major organizations. I was the australian national university. Which is our organizational host. It was the csi. Giovanni australia and the bureau of meteorology so the one university into three big government agencies collaborated in a way that allowed to build out and develop and the common thread across those three. Big agencies was really climate weather simulation and geospatial science earth sciences and so for example the the great majority of large-scale climate modeling research is done at nci. And it's done. In collaboration between the bureau of meteorology the csi and the university sector which has some substantial activity also in that mind so nci became if you will the collaborative sandpit that these organizations could actually work together on very large common data sets in degenerate very large data. It's through the simulation work and the the other component of that was with geoscience australia. They are the secretaries for the international agreements which bring labs scout satellite imaging data four alpine out of the globe down to australia and nci was tasked to work with Jason social strata. To figure out how to host is enormous data sets and make them there in available findable so forth and accessible and utilize -able
How Do Belly Buttons Work?
"Do you think the reason that you have in any or an outy. Bellybutton has something to do with the way that your milk cord was cut and tied when you were born. Come on be honest. The persistence of the any. Audi meth is exhibit a. But we don't know jack about our belly buttons your belly. Button is indeed the leftover remnant of what was once the umbilical cord The rope light connection between you and your birth parent which supplied all of your nutrients and oxygen when you were in the womb. When you were born someone helping with the birth likely cut. The bulk corridor a couple of inches. Away from your belly and clamped off the remaining section. There's no tying involved once it's clamped the small section of umbilical cord dries up and falls off in about a week. A what's left is the umbilical commonly known as the belly button and the shape and size of the bellybutton depends entirely on the way to your skin. Heels after the cord falls off. If you have an audi it's likely due to a mild umbilical hernia or slide infection at the site. Roughly ninety percent of people have any and it's a jungle in there according to eat delightfully odd scientific initiative called the belly button diversity project belly. Buttons are home to a startling diversity of bacteria. The project started back in twenty eleven at north carolina state university when a team of young researchers got the idea to explore the microbiome of the belly. Button a with the bacteria colony is the naval be different from those found on the rest of the body. Using our na sequencing the researchers identified two thousand three hundred and sixty eight different species of bacteria living in the navels of sixty volunteers for reference. There are only half as many species of birds or aunts in north america.
"audi" Discussed on CarCast
"App like instagram. And the see all the new shows coming up. And i'll go out and and see it. But i just don't remember seeing that i'm not sure you know why it didn't come across. I love those guys to death. But because every motor trend is about the road kill between hill. Now and and top gear right out. And i watched a few episodes of top gear and i thought it was. I thought it was fun. You know some episodes are more interesting but it all seems kind of fun and have another new show. that's coming. i forgot what it was. That kind of looked interesting but anyway we'll speaking of shows not necessarily motor trend But our friend. Craig jackson has two very unique shelby. Mustangs prototypes. he has. I think a sixty seven and a sixty eight. He has little red and he has the green hornet and these were big horsepower. Power cars like i think. I think i forgot which one. Maybe it's a little red. Has the twin paxton big block engine in it. It was a prototype development car and he found these cars awhile ago. Restored these things and it was all documented for for a two part docu series. So i i think it's an hour. Each episode is a f y. It's on history channel. And then eventually it'll be on on the payroll tax jackson youtube channel as well. So you will be able to see this in various places if you don't have one of those networks and the trailers look pretty interesting. It's a great story if you're into just sort of the restoration side of things not just the history of these cars but they are pretty pretty special cars and it's an interesting thought. Now here's the thing about craig jackson. We've interviewed him. A few times on here is craig is a pretty talented fabricator. He's a pretty talented mechanic and fabricator and and he goes off into his garage and puts us little t shirt on and tools around cars and he's been doing that for a long time since he was a kid and he's over driver and he is. Yeah we've seen him on the racetrack in monterey of several times i want to say in his. Amc think he drives his amc out there. And he's he's he's a bit of a fabricator he's a real car guy. He's not you know not just the auction guy you see on tv. He does get in there. So i think you're gonna find. He has a lot of thought into the restoration of these vehicles. Now it doesn't necessarily make sense for him to restore them all on his own given his day job. He's a fairly businessman. But the documentary looks pretty interesting It's like i said it's a two-part series it's going to be an. Fyi is going to be on history. And it's going to be on the jackson youtube channel. So you might want to check that out. I've been reaching out to friends in the in the car world. Then i told you. I've got a few things lined up like a to drive toyota tacoma. Trt perot opulent vehicle. You driving this week sir. And so this week this week. I'm driving my truck my lightning but then it gets then it gets which is fun except for the rain we've been having But then it's like eight weeks of of various cars. But i just had a nice conversation with our friends at audi. And it's been a minute since we've been able to drive some of the audi cars in particular i'm interested in driving the audi e tron. Gte right this is audis version of the porsche. Taycan and i would argue that. It looks better. I i think the audi looks better equally as fast. I think the interior is a little more conventional a row low roof. Flying's got that long angular. Look to it I just there's there's a over at my warehouse. There's a guy over there that woman over there that drives a white porsche taycan and and it's it's cool and i liked the car and i haven't driven. It seems like it would be exciting to dr alister has said good things about it. But as i see the audi more and more get interested in that. And what's the price compares. I think the audi is one hundred and change and it. There's going to be sort of two versions. That are gt and i think an rs version of it I'm trying to see if i can find kind of the base Prices of it Let me see. If i can find that real quick. A i want to say the tron starts at ninety nine nine so it starts at one hundred thousand right and you can go up now. The the tycoon has they have that the base model. Now that's like eighty something bucks but above it is the four s version. And it's like one hundred twenty. There's like a wild like twenty twenty something thousand dollar difference between the baby taichang the next version. So this one. I think kinda slots right in the middle of that but also the the. They'll throw fast for sure. I mean these things are all. I don't know three seconds three and a half second zero sixty times. It's just a little bit different styling than than the porsche. And i do like it. This is going to come out in the summer. and. Although i haven't booked this car. I am told we will be able to get it in the summer. But in the meantime let me look at my calendar. It's going to be a little while. We've got all kinds of things. Nissan rogue coming in toyota. Trt pro of vw airtime on the lexus are c. f. fuji addition. That's coming up. I end of april dodge durango. Hell cat finally. You know we've been talking about it. Alexis are x four fifty eight and then so in may starting may tenth audi s q seven. So it's the q seven suv but the version after that. Audi r s q eight so this is audis version of lamborghini or s. So an audi is saying. This thing is every bit as fast as the lamborghini. suv yards.

Any any news on the bronco when you're going to get there's no news on the bronco. There was a delay in the bronco and a slight little delay on deliveries for the mustang machi. Some deliveries on the mustang. Machi heard anything about the the bronco. I'm told may consumer they're continuing to shove e mails about your perspective models so as another carrot being done. Now keep keep in mind this. Isn't you know like we talked about the durango. Hell cat two thousand and are going to be made for a single year. Only that's very limited production you know. Mustang mach one limited production by the bronco the launch edition. Our first edition is limited. But not the rest of them so they be ignorant. Order them right. You still yeah and on a similar note. I guess. I don't know excuse me i don't know how many ram tr x.'s they're gonna build the launch additional first edition or launch launched that one was limited in the color scheme and whatever but i don't know how many of the trucks are going to make it. Seems like there's gonna be some sort of limit on them like they. Did you know they capital of the durango and the demon and a few other things. But i don't know if that's you know two thousand a year or five thousand a year or whatever but if it's anything like what they're trying to do with with four trying to do with wrapped are they are going to make a enough of them that you'll be able to get it at some point so the bronco is going to be the same wet.

"audi" Discussed on EV News Daily - Electric Car Podcast
"It's the audi look it definitely represents the audi brand but many bits of it are shed because at the same company and so you know that would make sense in fact even the little knobby that you used to do. The steering wheel upi down any outy. That's the same. But there are many of the things that i mean. You'd never see underneath the steering wheel you have to feel for. You can't even see the thing unless should be on your hands and knees and who cares who cares if the way that you move the steering wheel up and down in and out is the same on a porsche and audi some people bothered by that. I'm certainly not to compare it. With other audi's this is quicker than the are six and the irs seven. He's got forty six horsepower. More when the press were allowed to test drive the car before release by the white those that did it with those little speed trump fund. Dongo things that you put on the dashboard of the draghi's they timed at two point. Eight eight seconds note to sixty two and that's interesting again. That's a very german thing very porsche thing. Underplaying the car. Underplaying the specs when they give these audi. Give these specs by the way. These will always be in terms of the range. They'll be on the low end so that will be on the worst whale so if it comes twenty you can spec it with twenty one inch non era wheels. They'll give you that they'll put on the worst wheels like the biggest wheels the least error the namic and they'll do the testing in a in a way that doesn't exaggerate the range to leave you to leave. You disappointed like the way porsche have always done even with combustion cars and so. It's the same with tycoon. They give you the absolute worst case scenario. Hopefully you are surprised and delighted. Of course the the people that like to argue on twitter the stats nerds will take those numbers as gospel because they know nothing about generally i mean anything that talking about how the ones bicker on twitter just spoiling for an argument and then normally from one particular car brand because they are the disciples however if we want to look at the you're on. Gt cost it's about eighty seven thousand pounds. The gt will cost ninety nine thousand eight hundred euros in germany. So i've done that calculation to the uk. That's a uk price that i've got from audi by the way it's about three thousand pounds more than the ticon four s and it's seven thousand pounds more than the model s. Long range okay. Let's talk about the rs. Model is available from the first day on sale as well. The model costs from one hundred and twenty thousand pounds so you are in rarefied air up them.

The Freedom To Be You
"Now. The topic i wanted to discuss in this podcast. Episode is the topic regarding the freedom to be you and this actually comes from the last four to five weeks in the podcast community. We've been talking about this weekly. And it all started with a discussion around the concept of branding so when i graduated from college i my first job. I interned at a company doing marketing. And then what am i first. Jobs was at an advertising agency. And i learned a lot while working at the advertising agency regarding marketing regarding branding and this specific agency that i worked for was known for coming up with the brand of what happens. Here stays here for the city of las vegas. That was one of our a. Customers at the advertising agency was the city of las vegas or the the It's actually the city. But they're they're ministry of tourism. Or whatever the acronyms for the entity responsible for getting people to visit las vegas so they had the agency had come up with this branding campaign. That what happens here stays here and I'm sure many of you have heard about this. It's it's a very popular Brand for the for las vegas. So branding is a very important aspect of marketing. But it's not necessarily the same thing as marketing. Marketing is what you want your customers to do for example in advertisement that convinces them to call your phone number to hire you for Air conditioning repair or whatever. It is but branding is something a little bit. Different brandon is everything that you do to evoke a certain feeling from your customer. So that when they think about your company they have a certain feeling and many large brands focus heavily on being consistent with their branding. Apple has a certain. Feel a bmw. Audi ford radio. Any major brand has a brandt. has what's called branding. And all of their marketing revolves around the brandon and it starts with something as simple as their mission statement so think of brandon as what a company wants you to feel about them and marketing is more what a company wants you to do and because i spent so much time at an advertising agency and learning the ins and outs of marketing. And the ins and outs of branding I started to think more recently about how we as individuals actually do the same thing. We have the story that we have about ourselves and then everything that we do when we interact with others revolves around maintaining the brand that we want them to associate with us and as silly as that sounds. I think it's very real right. You may have a story about you. Which is i am an intellectual person and look at me. How i read so when i post a picture on social media of hey check out this book that i'm reading and that's all part of my subconscious branding effort to make sure that you know that i am a person who reads therefore i'm a person who intellectual or things or things like that The clothing that we wear the way that we do our hair the Type of vehicles that we drive the sports and hobbies that we participate in. All of these things are involved with our personal brand. And i think it's important to understand this not because we're necessarily trying to eliminate our stories or to eliminate are brandon but our effort is to understand ourselves. Why does this you know when someone does or says something. Why does it affect me this way. Oh because it's inconsistent with the branding. That i have about myself that i want them to perceive about me. Now i've encountered this firsthand in my own practice with When i was going through my transition faith and i had this story about myself. Which is that. I am a good person. I do good things. I i'm not the type of person who's Going to intentionally do wrong Or i guess in its broadest sense. I'm not a bad guy. I'm not a bad person and i. I liked to be known as someone who's nice and friendly and who does the right thing. That was part of my personal brand. Or i guess is part of my personal brand

Can You Use Vinegar Mixed With Water to Get Rid of Black Spot?
"And she says some of the plants that i'm bringing indoors from my deck have black spots on the leaves now. I read that apple cider. Vinegar mixed with water can be brushed on the leaves to kill the fungus. Have you ever heard of this. Yes definitely I have never done it. However i know people that do it. It's it's what i call a home remedy I would only cautioned the amount of vinegar in the water. So i would stay with one maybe two tablespoons in a gallon It will become Well if you if you get it too. Strong vinegar can be a weed killer. So let's go to that point but to To go one or two at the most dealers bones of vinegar in water and she could even dip them or brush it on or however you can do it but it should work to. At least it won't stop that black spot but it can stop the fungal bodies from growing and getting to be seed well into what it called. They're seen stage can stop the disease. But i don't think she can cured and make those leaves green again now. If you if fred hauer has black spot on some of the plants that he's going to bring inside what do you do. I don't bring them in now. Let me explain that I try to not foster things like blackspot however it is a fungal body is so very tiny. We never know it. We're breathing it. All the time is it. Lands as anyone Spore lands on a leaf of peony or a line lock or or whatever it may be I have one one peony. That is absolutely beautiful. Gray right now has nothing to do with the plants nature. So i won't even think about bringing that in I will cut it off at one inch above ground. I won't even put those leaves in the compost pile. They'll go into the trash And she can do the same now. sure what leaves she would be trying to preserve if she's trying to get a given plant seed head and leaves and all to come along if she wants to make a bouquet and and etcetera because i i use dried bouquets here She could indeed dip or use that solution to stop the disease from well from advancing on the leaves that she's bringing in and it certainly could stop it from carrying over into the next year is just reduction reducing the chances of one more sport case but as i say Next year that's going to be those little spores in the air. Everything that can contract a fungal disease which in this case is Well anyhow it is is just one of those things where next year the very plants that she's taking the cuttings from and so on. She should start in the spring knowing that they are susceptible to the audi mildew start spraying them to keep that from getting to be a problem during the course summit. Needless to say when. I mentioned that i totally beautiful great. Dna it's not good It's it's attractive where it stands and so on but i. I don't even want to think about that. Carrying over. because that means that plant unto itself is susceptible and. I want to get all the sports. I can't wait from it so it's one of those things where yes One of the one of the things that she can even do is along with the cider. Vinegar she can use one or at the very most tablespoons of horticultural oil. Now that's just it is We well it's a horticultural. Oil is listed such on the in the garden center on the shelves and so on. It's very highly refined so it's not like oils that are used as a Well pre grow season situation for other things but It will stop both the carryover of insects and insect eggs by using the horticultural oil. The vinegar will hopefully slow down or stop the black spots and so on and go from there now Backwards to black spot. I have very few roses anymore. One of them is. It never has had a touch blackspot. One of them is almost killed every year And i just kind of let it happen but Well prevention is the key to bomb insect problems and disease problems.

Dr. Timothy Johnston On Taking Your Customer Service To The Next Level
"A Nice Guy Community welcome back. Welcome back. It is strict on today and you are in for a treat today not just because I'm sitting in for Doug, it's also because I get to talk to Dr Timothy Johnston and award award-winning businessman lecturer published author in dental trade journals his business or dental center is the recipient of several prestigious awards is known for its excellent customer service Yod local community. He is a professional member of numerous Dental Association's personally received the Healthcare Heroes Award, and before you go running the other way because you know you hear dentist let me tell you. We're not talking just about Dennis today. Dr Johnson is also an international bestselling author of Ring Bell for service. He has some brilliant insights into succeeding in any business that depends on customer service. How are you doing today Dr Johnston I'm just fine. Thanks. Thanks for having me in absolutely absolutely, and you know we talk a lot about customer service on the Nice guys on business obviously as a dentist, it's Kinda critical isn't it? It really is and this is interview is not meant to really pertain so much the dental office because I've been doing that for years but one else I've learned from being. In terms of in terms of everything, but really what it means to be a dentist and take that experience. So to speak. I love that and again, your book. Ring Bell for service. It has some really really great insights and I'm sure lots of great ideas that you have realized over thirty years in business So the first one I wanted to touch on that you bring up in the book is, why is the customer not always right? It goes without saying that the customer is not always right. The thing that makes it stand out so much to me is when a customer client customer or anybody comes in and thinks he knows you, he thinks that his his take on the world is what's driving the whole thing. For example guy comes into my office. This is in a chapter in my book and before I can even. Kevin brought to the back. He stands up and he says I need to talk to the doctor right away. And I'm walking Brown and I hear this I step out and I'd say who I am Dr Johnston and I'll be seeing you come back this way we talk about if you like he has no, I need you to come out here. So I, walk out in the waiting room on it I stand there he goes I need to talk to you for minute about this TV. So I look in on TV is just a commercial again you the. Commercial. I don't understand it's commercial for something, and if you WANNA, come back, we could talk about not discuss it in front of these other patients here. He has not before this commercial. This was tuned to Fox News and I cannot believe you're playing Fox News. I said Ob size it today it's Fox. News. Tomorrow could be discovery channel the next day and might be you know who knows what? It's something different every day my receptionist controls it's not me. It's just whatever it is. I. Said if backup Santa Surprise that it's not the discovery channel because we we subscribe to that too and four days out of five of seems to be tuned into something dental. So but either as May. Come back. We'll talk about your needs and everything is going to go on and he says, no, you don't understand I could not possibly be a part of this in a dental office from someone who is preaching as politics out to everybody else. At this point I had to make a decision was this going to be a lifetime relationship with this guy or was it gonna be hi and bye because if I decided to keep them on to story for live longer and I was going to bend my ways to make him you know, yes, I could change the channel but if I was gonna bend over backwards to make this one person. Happy. was that going to be what my my position was going to be for the day? And you know flash of lightning ever only happens about once every five years I said well, you know what? If that's your position you can see the door right there. And he looked at me and he looked over behind him with the door said, wait a minute and might be the straight. You gotta let a perfectly good patient go because you won't change the TV station has no no, I'll just let you go but I won't let these perfectly good patients go. Ooh, good answer. I thought it was just a flash of lay. It just came to me and he turn on his heels and he huffed and puffed and slam the doors and Audi went, and there was two people sitting there in the waiting room. They were both patients of mine for years and they both looked at me at applauded me lately it likes to say good job Tim good job. So my point is you can't be everything to everybody the customer is not always right. We hear that time and time again, the customer's always right the customer's always right. But in reality I have to make my plans for ninety nine percent of the audience in for the one percent I've gotta them go and it was some of the best decisions I've ever made I've done it maybe five times in my life. I've been in practice for thirty thirty one years. It's a rare thing but we don't click with somebody really don't click and that's the times when I have to say you know what you're out of here and this is one of those times.

"As they do in many of their newer models is full support for Amazon Alexa. And it's actually built into the infotainment system so if you haven't Alexa account setup which I have set up right now you can configure that and use that to access your Amazon Music Account Or to do any of the other functions that you would do with an Amazon Echo device when you're at home Without actually having to have an echo device so if you have some smart home features like automatic lights or Thermostat or for other things are controlled through Alexa. You can actually control those directly from the car so as you're driving home for example you can have it. You can tell it to turn on your exterior lights or open garage door without having to press any buttons and you can just use voice control for that and as I said you. Can you also use it to play any music that you have so the seats in this car are really comfortable as they typically are in in any out vehicle very nice materials is really? We'll put together great finish. It really feels like a luxury vehicle and one of the knocks on Tesla. As good as Tesla vehicles are in many respects at the price point you pay for them compared to comparable premium vehicles from other brands. Don't actually feel that luxurious. Most of the time. Yeah obviously you're giving up something here too for the Audi relatives in Tusla in terms of range and performance This is not a slow car by any means. But it's not gonna be able to drag race against a Model X. Performance It'll do zero sixty about five and a half seconds When you enable boost mode but it's really designed to be more of a mainstream product not a performance vehicle Audi is working on a performance variant of the Tron. That's going to be coming out Probably sometime in twenty twenty one I think and So we've seen That they're working on three motor variant. This one like most. Tesla's has two motors front rear up to two hundred horsepower. Each in the standard mode they actually put out about one hundred and seventy five horsepower. Each so about three hundred and fifty five horsepower total And then when you enable the the boost mode that will get you up to A little over four hundred horsepower Later this year Out He's going to be introducing a new variant of the Trot called the sport back which rather than having the sort of SUV. Traditional SUV wagon kind of horizontal roof. Line all the way back instead. it features a sloping rear back. So it's more coop like and that one We'll be actually going to be making some changes in the battery management system To use more of the battery capacity finding so far that they're battery durability is better than they anticipated so it will actually have more range it's expected to have an official range rating of about two hundred and twenty two hundred twenty five miles per hour and eventually those changes We'll probably be migrated back into the standard e Tron as well and going forward A. Tron. Is the the badging that out? He's going to be using all of their plug in vehicles. Which is going to be primarily a battery electric vehicles but also some plug in hybrid models electrical system and this vehicle is a four hundred volt electrical system which is typical of most current vis And it supports charging rates of up to one hundred and fifty kilowatts But and it also has a very robust throw management system so manages the temperature the battery of keep the battery from overheating which can cause damage to it or keep it from getting too cold On the batteries cold. It also can't charge fast so they've got an a very robust Temperature management system in this this battery pack and then in some of the other Higher end models that are coming up We've already got the Porsche tycoon in the market. I haven't had a chance to drive that one yet although I did get a chance to ride in one prototype last summer. Tycoon uses an eight hundred volt electrical system. Which is a higher power system It'll it has support for up to three hundred and fifty kilowatt Charging capability and Audi has another model in other coming out late this year which is built on that same platform as the TICON. That's called the each ron. Gt Very sleek Four door coupe. Like hatchback Similar proportions to the Audi a seven and That vehicles coming out towards the end of this year. Although with what's going on right now may get pushed back into early. Twenty twenty one all right. Let's get to the bottom line. So they out succeeded in their stated goals with e Tron. This car very much. Audi in all respects anybody. That's familiar with modern Audis and likes them. They'RE GONNA they're gonNA love this vehicle but it's not perfect it's on the pricey side this particular one eighty five thousand dollars base models star about sixty seven thousand dollars before incentives. And that's that means it's not gonNA be a mainstream vehicle but out aren't mainstream vehicles for their premium brand. It's a premium brand no problem there. The range rains not great. I think it's more acceptable for almost everybody. Two hundred and four miles. I drove two hundred ten miles on this thing before I pulled into an electrify. America's station still had nine. It's showing showing on the range meter so getting two hundred and twenty miles. Range is very very realistic in normal weather conditions. And you know that's generally enough for almost everybody you know. Most people don't drive more than forty miles a day. So you know except for very long trips you know. It's not a problem and I charged it up from almost zero to one hundred percent in about forty five minutes at an EA station. At one. Hundred and fifty kilowatts there's over four hundred electrify America stations now across the country plus hundreds more from charged point ego and and other network providers that are also starting to offer similar one hundred and fifty kilowatt charging rates. So you can pretty much drive this thing anywhere you wanna go. Just like with a Tesla who the Super Charger. Us going to have to stop a little bit more frequently For those fast charges finally the the biggest functional complaint I have about this thing is touchscreen interface for the climate controls. You saw the split dual screen dual touchscreen system with the infotainment navigation on the top climate controls on the lower screen. The top part is fine for using media maps and so on the bottom screen for the climate controls is terrible. That interface is atrocious. Really hard to use while you're driving if you want to adjust anything if you want to turn on the default or trying to get through that to turn on the window. Defago does not work every manufacturer. This is not just Audi. Every manufacturer needs to go back to just straight up. Rotary dials physical controls for climate control. So that you can give a quick twist to just the temperature just the fan speed adjusted direction where you want the airflow and leave it at that it does. We don't need high tech for climate controls in cars at least not while we're still driving now. I've complained a bit about that you know. And that's that's me some people like touchscreen interfaces and cars. I'm not one of them but aside from that you know it's not a deal killer. The rest of the vehicle is so great to drive. It's roomy it's comfortable. It's quick and electric zero emission. So if you're interested in the premium electric suv go check it out. And Audi dealer.

"Options. The Nissan leaf the original test the roadster and of course the Chevy volt which was more plug in hybrid than electric. But we'll let it slide over the last decade we've had a bunch of other issues come to market but not everybody was into in two thousand ten including the Volkswagen Group you know at the time. Volkswagen was trying to sell something that God clean diesel. Well as we now know clean. Diesel wasn't really quite so clean and after that the scandal broke in two thousand fifteen. Volkswagen group completely pivoted towards electrification. And they're now planning to have seventy five different electric vehicle nameplates on the market by twenty twenty five. They launched their first two dedicated electric vehicles in two thousand nineteen the Porsche. Taikang which we haven't yet driven although I have had a ride in it and this went the Audi e Tron. It's a really nice car to drive. Let's take it for the first thing you'll notice when you get into the Detroit is that it's nothing like being tesla rather than going for the sort of modern minimalistic approach that Tesla's taken particularly with the model three but also with the S. and the axe out decided to go for something that's more typically outy back in September of two thousand eighteen when they did the reveal the tron. They explained to us that what they were aiming for was to create an Audi that was electric something that would appeal to customers. That wanted that the traits of an Audi. So what you see here looks very much like any other modern. Audi really nice materials very typical of Audi very nice leather some Alcantara on the door panels. Soft touch materials everywhere. Real Wood Trim on the top along the DASH here and Also typically of modern Audis got dual touchscreen displays here so there's actually three large displays to in the center stack their touch screens. And then the what they call their virtual cockpit digital instrument cluster display and the the two center stack displays here. The lower one is primarily used for climate control so heated seats ventilation and so on and then the upper screen has other vehicle controls as well as a main infotainment system so you navigation audio system and so on one thing. That's unique about Audi's approach to their screens. It's not the typical you know. When you touch your tablet or your phone you actually have to press. It's more along the lines of what you'd get with apple modern track pads which don't actually physically move but give you a haptic feedback that makes it feel like a clique. So let's go for a little ride First thing shifter is rather unique instead of having a big shifter that actually physically moves back and forth. There's actually just switch here on the on on the the end of this handle that sits in the center console. He pushed it forward to engage reverse. And you'll see that the backup camera overhead three sixty view camera light up and then he is your your index finger. Push the switch backwards to engage drive mode. You may be able to hear the sound the humming sound that the Tron is making drive along through the neighborhood here at low speed bullet twenty miles an hour. Modern vs almost all make some sort of sound to provide alerts to pedestrians to let them know they're coming. Because unlike an internal combustion engine vehicle generally not gonNa hear this thing coming at you the driving down the road. Each ron is actually very quiet. Just as most are most of what you hear coming through the vehicle is road noise from mostly from the tires. This particular test unit Has the optional. Twenty one inch wheels running on all season tires But you can also get the base model on eighteen inch wheels which will actually give you a little bit better ride quality one thing about if you opt for the bigger wheels and this is true of vehicles if you opt for bigger wheels and tires you end up sacrificing some ride quality because you end up with tires have a shorter sidewall so they're not as compliant when you're going over some rough rough pieman so this first generation e Tron fits into Audi's lineup. Roughly in between the the mid sized Q. Five and the larger three row Q. Seven SUV's the conventional crossover utility vehicles that That sells it's about Four or five inches shorter than accused seven eight inches longer than a Q. Five and unlike the Q. Seven. It's not a three row to row. So it's a five seater but it's a very comfortable five-seater it's on the larger size for two row. Suv passengers in the backseat. Will have lots of room to stretch out. And you also get lots of cargo space in the back as with all electric vehicles the tron incorporates. Regenerative braking is one of its features Normally it defaults to an automatic mode when you lift off accelerator pedal. We'll just coast So it doesn't do any region but there's paddles look much like shift paddles on the back of the steering wheel here and the the paddle on the left is marked minus the plus is on the right. If you tap the the minus paddle you could manually control. How much region you get so you can see that when I lift off. Now I've put it on the maximum region mode when you lift off vehicle slows down quite noticeably. If you don't like that if you prefer a more traditional approach that feels like an internal combustion engine vehicle than You can turn off that region When you're coasting and it'll just coast and maintain your current speed. That's not as efficient You won't recapture as much kinetic energy And put it back in the battery so it's generally a good idea to Go with more region. If you if you don't mind the Whitfield's so I've been driving this vehicle for the last several days trying to find out how much actual real world range. I can get out of a full charging the battery one of the complaints when this vehicle watch last year was the rather Mediocre EPA mileage rating her by range rating that it has which is only two hundred and four miles which compared to Any of the Tesla vehicles especially comparable price point is about thirty thirty five percent less or more in some cases one of the things that he's done with the Trans they take in a very conservative approach to managing the battery Because what they WANNA do is ensure the durability of the battery over the life of this vehicle and so even though this this car has a ninety five kilowatt hour battery Pack Lithium. Ion Battery pack which is almost the same size as long range. Tesla Model S. or Model X. About one hundred kilowatt hours from there using eight eight percent of that capacity so there's actually only eighty three kilowatt hours available to us but even within that range It's also it's still not as efficient In real world driving as a tesla or some other smaller electric vehicles like the Chevrolet volt so this particular intron has the prestige package So the on is available in the US market with two different trim levels the premium and the prestige and the prestige comes pretty much loaded with almost everything. There's a few options available. This one has the technology package that adds in Features like a heads up display and the Full blown driver assist system. You get things like Adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist blind spot monitoring his standard but this builds on top of that as some additional capability to it. The driver system in the he trot does have a lane centering capability. But it's not as aggressive is what you'll find in a system like General Motors Super Crews Or TESLA AUTOPILOT. So depending on the speed. You're going through a corner. It may not actually be able to hold you in there. And it's not designed to be a hands off system like supercrew says so you do have to keep your hands the wheel and your eyes on the road. One difference that the Audi has relative to The Tesla's is that rather than just relying on a torque sensor in the steering wheel to detect if your hands on the wheel There's actually capacity sensors in the steering wheel rim just as GM has in the In their supercrew system. So you know if you do have your hands off the wheel After a few seconds it will alert you to put your hands back on the wheel and you see an icon in the steering column and all I have to do is touched the wheel. I don't actually have to fully grab it and I'll have to jiggle it around like you would and a Tesla to indicate that I'm still here. I'll have to put my hands on the wheel and it'll attacked to one of the interesting capabilities e Tron has The camera that used for the Lane. Centering Lane Departure. System Also reads Speed limit signs and other traffic signals. And so what it can do is when you have the cruise control set. I currently have it said forty five miles an hour which is the speed limit along this road. Right now If you if you come to a zone where the speed limit drops it will automatically reduce your set speed Down to that new speed one of the things. They'll show you in the instrument. Cluster is as you approach Curve or in this case around about it actually slows down the vehicle automatically so you can go through safely so I have not touched the brake pedal and it dropped my speed down from forty miles an hour down to twenty five miles per hour as I went through this roundabout and then it will automatically resume the speed that I had set. When you get to back into a higher speed zone it can automatically update that as well. So if I get to a place where the speed limit increases to fifty five miles an hour sixty miles an hour it will automatically update my set speed on the cruise control and go up to fifty five miles per hour so approaching an intersection right now or this. There's a stop sign. And even though I haven't touched the brake pedal the cars already starting to slow down. And it's slowing me down because it knows on the map that there's an intersection here and there's a four-way stop sign so it's already dropped my speed down to twenty five miles per hour. This brand to a full stop here. It won't actually bring it to a full stop so this this is not be considered a full self driving system by any means but it is a very useful driver assist system.

"Month free sponsored by Audi right now trending on news ninety three point one okay of BK the federal reserve expected to cut rates this week at a critical meeting the kana say it's an indication of concern about the US economy slowing down and rising concern about a global slowdown as well most seem may not be believing anymore small start ups and government agencies are racing to create systems to detect it deep thanks ahead of the twenty twenty election and they're doing battle with an increasing army of people now making those deep fakes the technology is getting easier to use giving more people access and well if you look closely you can still spot deep thanks experts say that window of recognition is closing rapidly I am worried about the weaponization and I'm worried about how it's impacting us as a society so we are working as hard as possible to detect these things that is honey for read he is a computer scientist at Dartmouth university in he told PBS that he is a part of one team working ahead of the election to learn the patterns of speech and the body language for each candidate he says that will help them spot deep fakes even as the technology improves we do that of course by analyzing hundreds of hours of video of individuals were focused on building models for all of the major party candidates so that we can upload a video to our system we can analyze it by comparing it to previous interviews and then asking what is the probability that this is consistent with everything we've seen before okay so in this day and age I just sometimes wonder how you know how much were fooled I harken back to the doctor Nancy Pelosi video where you know she was quote unquote drunk but wasn't drunk right and it clearly was a deep Fagan somebody produced and so on and you know within hours that will everything on on on on on line just went viral with people saying wait a second this is a deep fake I mean the the warning signs are are being pushed out just almost as rapidly as the deep fakes are being pushed out something this Dartmouth guy brought up the professor from Dartmouth and that was interesting he said what if someone took about president trump and they did a deep fake of him saying I have launched against North Korea okay and then it goes on Twitter and it goes viral and how to the rec instant and then how they react in an instant so he says okay it's it's unlikely but it's not wholly without out the outside the realm that is understandable which is why it's so important to I'd be able to identify these deep thank so start ups like a there's a San Diego based company they are currently working on technology to digitally mark photos that can be verified here's our vice president true path of true Peck that's the company Nick brown he's talking about the detection technology we can be considered a digital notary for photos and videos online we started the company a number years ago with the notion that seeing is no longer believing when it comes to images on the web it's too easy to falsify photo in fact modern consumer experiences to take a photo edit the photo and then posted somewhere and that's fine when your Instagram your breakfast but it's not okay when you're making a decision on the photo and so that the consumers are used to fake photos because we make them right we have the consumer technology but the nice buildings are on and we do all that stuff and in the are I should say our executive producer just corrected me apparently policy was not a deep fake it's a fake right now the debate it was slow down I cannot keep up with all the freaking there otherwise I saw I mean I look to depict all day yesterday this one with Jordan Peele because he does a really good president Obama voice right and they had president Obama space and video and they had Jordan kills and voice okay thank things that president Obama never sat and it it was pretty good I'm not perfect but pretty good and but they said the window of that technology is closing where you're gonna be able to tell so the US defense department is also working on this and they are trying to develop a system to detect photos or video that has been manipulate at the highest levels now I know it off to the roads we go let's check in with Brian our thing things getting better all the way around this report is brought you by true car west.
