Abe and two friends took a road trip to napa california while on a trip. Eva expressed her frustration and disappointment on her career uncertainty. To one of the friends. Jim gen able to write down three things. She was passionate about on a napkin. Eva wrote traveling children and languages at the time she already lived in eight countries spread across four continents and spoke five languages. Got her thinking maybe she could start a business with these skills somehow after getting home from the trip eva created a google. Talk and brainstorm services. She could offer then researched how to fine tune them for example. She learned that it's extremely beneficial to get credited in order to be an interpreter in medicine. It's not enough to speak the language. Well the certification.

Eva had also jotted down words. That described her hyper polyglot. Nomad poly-lingual influence to name a few looking back at that napkin. Two words stood out hyper and flint. Ab decided to combine the two to create hyper fluent.

Squared away able was offered a fellowship by the ministry of education of indonesia to study bahasa indonesia for a year even in her new role thousands of miles in twelve time zones away. Eva continued to focus on setting up a side business. She made business cards and bought a new camera to take professional photos on location while in indonesia. She made her first website. Which at the time was more of a block pricing structure dependent on what the service was and for how long a person needed it free tutoring. The price was fixed but if someone needed a series of manuals translated the price dependent on the number of words the target language the timeframe and sector. It's likewise for interpretation. The price dependent on the sector the distance to travel for the assignment and the duration. She also decided to price services differently in different countries in reflection of market realities.

I'm gonna do language tutoring for kids from well off families in this particular area where it could be something totally different but just picking something. I think is going to help a lot.

She made a google doc and brainstorm services she could operate using her language skills and from there she made various observations. Like oh i should get a certification to be medical interpreter and probably some other observations as well so just kind of scratching things out and making notes of your skills and what services. Those talents might lend themselves to can be very helpful.

We don't say that actually that's a harmful word and if people WANNA get into it. I. Think you have to choose the time and place for that now, but I do find for us personally I do believe that the majority of people are really trying to do the best they can with what they know and what they have. So, for the most part when somebody says something that is like way off, you can usually have a really good easy dialogue about it and they're like Oh. Gosh I'm so sorry I didn't realize try harder. You know for the most part I want to give people the benefit of the doubt for sure.

For inclusion I'm also here for the handsomeness of Avis being represented in an in an ad. So good work you guys I love that if if someone who's listening is interested in resources on how to better educate themselves about down syndrome is there something that you point people to I mean yes..

Incident: Wings AT72 at Ambon on Jul 3rd 2020, Failure of All Instruments
"A. Wings Eighteen, seventy, two or eighteen, seventy, two dash. Two, one to. At Ambon, which is in Indonesia was flying from Ambon to Babbo with forty nine passengers and three crew D my Indonesia accent. Yeah. I think you make an APP. I am was in the initial climb out of Ambon Putnam, Laura Airport's runway to just when just after becoming airborne all display units, standby instruments, communication and multifunction control display unit failed. All of it. The landing gear lever not good. No landing gear lever could not be retracted. Climbing through about two thousand feet the display units one and three partially recovered showing speed and altitude indications again, and about three thousand feet communication and remaining displaying its intermittently recovered and the landing gear retracted. They put their landing gear lever up and then finally goes. Okay. Yeah. Sure. You're up. You sure. It wasn't doing a Microsoft update or something might have been. So. I'm thinking. If this were instrument meteorological conditions. I believe we will be reading about the accident and terrible tragic crash of this flight however could easily be yeah without any insurance when you're going to do not ways up, right. Thankfully the weather was not quite as bad. I mean it wasn't perfect, but it wasn't IMC apparently. and they were able to maintain. Reference to the. Queues outside to keep the airplane flying straight and level and climbing all stuff aircraft stop the climate four thousand feet position for return to runway for about thirty minutes after departure but went around and enter to hold at seven thousand feet. The aircraft subsequently landed back on runway four, one hour fifty minutes past. Departure. In Asia Cayenne KT which I guess is there investigatory agency rated the occurrence a serious incident? Yeah. Open an investigation. There were no injuries and the aircraft sustained minor damage doesn't really say. How I can recall. Let's see. Then they go into a little bit more detailed by the way this is from the aviation. Excuse me. Aviation Herald. Let's see the weather during the situation was raining and the ground visibility was six kilometers. So you know wasn't. Great with not great. Let's see the. Starting process of the engines was normal when the aircraft taxied in lined up for runway to to. The aircraft took off and after airborne, the pilot verified the idol gate lever engaged I don't know what that is something to do with props. I guess suddenly all five display units and the integrated electronic standby instrument i. e s I went blank and the VHF radios burr off. the pilot glance to the overhead panel several lights eliminated. Consisting of the shed light on the D. C. Service utility busts, the available light on the external power push buttons. That problem they. Hit a great big generated. Along. With the we're just getting of course Pack lavatory detection engine boost. Hey we have a lavatory, we detected there. during the Situa- we just talked about that the pilot did not have flight instruments as reference for flight therefore, the pilot flew visually. about one minute. So everything came back and let's see why is it that they ended up holding for a while they run some checklist or something that the deal oh, I think he was waiting for the weather to improve. A bit before they came in for their landing. Yeah. Sensible. Relying, his attitude indicators. And other instruments. Yeah. Urinate Visual Reference Yeah. That was smart. So you know you'd think that was this the airplane that was kind of Pretty new or was that another one lows? Let's see Oh. August fourth twenty seventeen. Yeah. So it's Relatively, new airplane Not, sure. Exactly. What happened there some kind of electrical. Weirdness apparently yeah. I mean a supply problem but the thing that really concerns me as if you get a supply problem to you main instrument panels. Avis or whatever type of aircraft urine you would expect perhaps to lose some. But the one thing that should you should always bail rely on is you standby instruments they should be from a completely separate power sauce. Often. Just connected almost directly to the battery so that regardless of what else you've lost, you've got something to go on to help fly the airplane. the fact that he lost his signed by insurance as well. makes me seriously concerned about the architecture, the electrical system of of this aircraft. If, they find a full of manages to take out. So many buzzes by all buses that they also lose their same standby instruments that for me is a major concern. Yeah. I'm wondering if if that was something about the way, the electrical system was designed and manufactured or maybe. There was some kind of maintenance done to the airplane and they didn't connect all the bits and bobs correctly. I don't know I saw. The aircraft should be so capable on the ground before they get on something incorrect deep rooted of self diagnosing electrical problem If they wouldn't have got to have on, they had known that they had a major potential right room with their instruments. Sure. So this is just It happens. On a bus of had some problems in the pasta with unexpected glitches which have taken out all the display units but never have I heard of an Airbus having a problem with standby simultaneously that that is just nine national that is not supposed to happen. Ever. But did apparently in this case, and thankfully, the weather was good enough for them to maintain control their come. We had some pundits who had enough skill to bail to continue to fly the airplane the even relatively poor visibility with. Right around which meant horizon, the visual horizon would have been indistinct. They managed to interpret what was happening to the aircraft in their Themselves and not get fooled and not getting a situation where they lost control. So fantastic
Thanks to the Cancellation of Public Life, Fertility Apps Could Be in For a Big Moment
"From wondering. I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily. Well it's Friday folks and we hope you've been okay in the strangest of months as you probably know we've been doing something different this week in the two and a half months since China reported the first death from the Corona Virus. The world has changed. And we're taking a look back at some previous episodes to get a sense of just how much it's changed boy. The pandemic has really turned things around as well as the fortunes of some companies. Some for the worst some for the better. Well today's episode. We're going to look back at a rapidly growing industry but one that Well if you'll pardon the PUN stays kind of hidden under the covers. We're talking here about fertility trackers. We suspect with work school sports and entertainment cancelled. Millions of folks have to find something to do at home. And whether you want new babies in nine months or you don't fertility tracking companies claim that they can help out but a couple of updates. You should be concerned about since we first ran this story. More information has arisen questioning just how these companies may be using and sharing your personal data and as their popularity has risen so to has scientific scrutiny about the extent to which these APPs are accurate especially for women who may have underlying health concerns in any event with that in mind. Listen to our story from November seventh twenty eighteen well dreaming of onesies with ducks in dinosaurs. These days as more and more women wait to have babies. The process of making those little ones seems to be getting harder make sense. The birth rate for young women has been falling for years. But it's been climbing for women in their late thirties through fifties when getting pregnant can be harder in about as much fun as changing a truckload of dirty diapers you used to be. The only real solutions were expensive and invasive fertility treatments involving painful shots and perfectly timed sex now. Millions of women are turning to fertility tracking APPS. It's a measure of how desperate wannabe parents can be that. At last count there were more than one. Hundred trackers with names like clue and period summer. Free others using wearable technology cost a few hundred bucks. One of those is. Eva Fit bit like bracelet whose sensors track a whole bunch of signs from skin temperature to resting pulse rate to stress levels all while you sleep. Avis Proprietary Algorithm.

Bruce McLaren Pt. III - Life after Death: Road to the P1
"When we last met up with Bruce the young. Qe had left his home country of New Zealand and made his home in England working for legendary carmaker John Cooper in his factory. Bruce's racing career abroad had a bit of a bumpy. Start but after two wins at the Medina of Formula One. Not because I would say the machias Monaco Silverstone Bruce was finding his confidence behind the wheel is Medina. Like Madina Right. That's the first time I've ever really called on to city in Western. Saudi Arabia Coleman Anyway. It's the one thousand nine hundred fifty eight German Grand Prix. At the Nurburgring Bruce Finishes Fifth Overall and first in the formula to class. He was hanging in with the formula. One cars thing about how Formula One cards. You have to stay ahead of to be fifth overall but still win. The form from the to us about twenty-one sounds about right I'm not gonNA contest that's pretty crazy. Just like bump up a class like yeah I mean that. Just shows the prowess over. Yeah Yeah So. After the fifty eight German Grand Prix Hayman's mechanic Colin set off for England a race in brands hatch. Which was the very next day which I thought was insane. What these guys are always driving to raise amazing. They may act like now Racing is very posh. I guess like these guys are treated as athletes like you mentioned in the last episode. There's just so much data on them. They're checking their pulse. And their heart rates you know they probably like decompress the dudes after race in like check all their muscles and stuff like back then. It was a pretty like rag tag almost like the circus is coming to town. Yeah and it's there was no thought for scheduling. Yeah I'm really it's like. Hey we have formula one race in Germany. How will we go to Britain the next day? And there's like there's a race on there I don't know I guess two races back to back. In a day holiday weekend we might as well take advantage. Might as well make a vacation out of. Let's get some Carl's junior on the way. So they managed to complete the three hundred eighty mile journey from the nurburgring to brands. Hatch overnight and cooking. Yeah Bruce Hop in the car and finished third at that race and by the way. He wasn't the only one who made it to that raise. It was like pretty much the entire field in Germany. It's like a huge caravan of big old haulers and like probably station wagons and stuff just ripping down the autumn. Get on the M one. You know that's a local reference to angle everyone in the Midwest right now is like yeah. Three hundred and eighty miles. That's your commute. Yeah how far was la to Albuquerque for high low? It was like eight hundred miles so not that impressive. Sixteen hours twenty five dollars. God that was yeah. That was yeah. It was tasty blames my heart attack on that show. He's like like we just shot season. Two of high low the Z's are awesome now But like she was like very concerned while. We're shooting it because the last season was just so hard on us. This one was way easier by last time we work in eighteen hour days for like a month in a row and I had a heart attack like two weeks after it was weird man like that show like gotten the rhythm of that like you said eighteen hour days it was like okay you wake up drives garage work all day and then come home sleep for a little bit and then just do that and then after like two weeks this is like just a weird kind of few mind state. I forgot to pay bills beard dream state and like it's not like we're just going and work in it was like the highest pressure. Just everything was going wrong so much stress constantly and just like I think all of us cried. I cried cried cried. I was angry writing my lyrics by Bruce's twenty first birthday. He had competed in eleven European races and he had finished every one of them. Bruce believes it was because of the shared meticulous nature between he and his mechanic Colin they always tried to be first to tech inspections. I wants to practice and always have the car looking in tiptop shape in his book. Bruce maintains that quote. Three things are important. Go a long way towards winning races. I think it's time for just a little. Reminder of what racing was like back then the reputation that open-wheel racing has today as of precision and other worldly engineering and safety. But that's not how the sport was perceived in the late fifties. Now let no. Let's just listen to how Bruce describes a race. In Avis Germany. To my mind it was ridiculous to have a race. On the Avis Sick. It proved nothing and it was dangerous consisting of two two and a half Moss straights at one end by a hairpin and the other very steeply banked corner and when I say steeply banked boy I mean. Steeply banked is around forty degrees. It sounds more like something you'd see in running man to full throttle than a sanctioned race. I just think about. That's the most ridiculous racetrack I've ever heard. Yes big old oval that's not even oval is like hairpins up. Both sides knows a big bank at one side maintains a Frickin slingshot around the moon apart. And then you have to go through a hairpin shoe like the shape of the Caribbean her family. Yeah yeah so like you could just maintain a two and a half miles so you can maintain just like top out speed for. I'm guessing like close to six miles. Said Yeah they are in the book he says I think the average speed for that race was like one hundred fifty miles hour. That's absurd you remember. This is in the late fifties. Cars didn't have frigging seatbelts back. Then I don't think no no. No he goes on to describe the racing. At the Avis Circuit Race itself was like a group of boys and dodging cars wheels. Touching noses entails bumping jostling for the lead. But we do of that one hundred fifty miles per hour. Dodging cars are just bumper cars. Doug Jim Jim can't get a loan. I'm going to get some Cotton Candy Army Kit. The Dodoma's ooh that sounds. I'm going to try and win stuff bare minimum. There's a part of the documentary where he describes these like really steep banks. And he's going so fast that like it's hard to keep his hands in the bottom of the steering wheel like it's point his hands. Yeah isn't that crazy? That is insane. Bruce's appreciations about Avis testified as a crash sent one of the competitors flying thirty feet in the air and ejecting. The driver. The car went thirty feet. Car was out. Yeah the rest of the pack was able to dodge the car and continued their Breakneck Chase. Down the stretch back. Then they didn't even have like What's it like lotion rounds? Yeah they never. Yellow flag doesn't sound like as long as our cars on the way that's like a man. Keep it going. Crashes like these were not uncommon in racing back then. Bruce's car through a connecting rod that race by the way and the ejected driver also survived his crash with a broken leg and four. Broken Vertebrae like our racecar driver back. Then I'd be like okay. I'm down to race. Thank God I blew karate. Yeah certainly marina okay. I'm not going to win but at least I'm not dying today. There does seem to be at least a little bit of that kind of feeling. Drought the book because he when he describes time that it's car broke breaks down. He's also he's very sad obviously but also he then like in. The same breath described some horrific crash. Where someone just gets thrown from their car. His good friend got killed in a race and then he just like race the next day like they didn't even think about it. It was just like yeah. Of course I'm GONNA race guys used to die all the time.
CEO, Chairman of MGM Resorts Jim Murren steps down
"We've got to kick it off with broken last hour on. MGM CONTESSA BREWER BACK CNBC HQ with some numbers and a big executive departure contestants Brian Big news from Mgm Resorts Chairman and CEO. Jim Marin is leaving. He's been at the helm of this organization. Since two thousand twelve in fact was mentored by founder Kirk Kerkorian and will remain in this post. I'm told until a successor is found. This comes at a time fraught with uncertainty for the company it's Casinos Gino's or closed in Macau because of Corona Virus Far East visitors aren't playing Bacharach in Las Vegas. The way they used to that led last quarter do an eighteen percent drop in table. Able Games those headwinds have caused the company to withdraw. Its full year guidance. It's expanding massive energy effort dollars to secure gaming license in Japan for an integrated resort. It's new casino in Springfield Massachusetts is struggling. SNP were out with a note questioning MGM's credit and its ability to sustain long-term Corona virus disruption without raising its risk of default. And then you have activists investors like Keith Meister. Who was named to the Board Board last year? Really Agitating for change here. Three hundred million dollars. In big cost cutting initiatives at MGM resort they're selling premier properties like the Bellagio and MGM. Am Grand on this trip. This is a company Brian in the midst of upheaval. The call has just started. I'm going to jump on on bringing back any headlines that I find please do contests a thank you very much charlie. Let's talk about this guy's not a segment. We talk about too much but tim kind of an odd departure. MGM Yeah The stock up eighteen percent over six months which is good did not as good as the market. It's outperformed Las Vegas Sands not like this company's been tanking but now and as it should it certainly would the focus that's been on Makara remember. MGM Reminding Audience Audience. There are about thirty percent of the revenues coming from China whereas you know win seventy five percent so very different profile on risk as was just talked about the fact that. MGM has been doing everything they can to improve their balance. Sheet makes the stock a lot more defensive so again the sale of the ground they sold their property at fifteen point. Fifteen and three quarters times multiple a on ebitda which is which is very attractive and I think something that gets them down to that one times leverage they were trying to do so I think casinos thrown around here. A lot of these stocks were breaking gap before we got into Corona virus and again those that actually are exposed. I like casino. I should have said this Karen WYNN resorts up eight and a half percent a year. MGM's up twice. That I mean it's again it's not like this spin some horrible underperformer well. There's one thing in the released today. That was really interesting. The tender offer that MGM announced to the Doing one point to five billion and a tender off a Dutch tender. So you can somewhere between twenty nine and thirty four so they're basically giving you somewhat of a floor for at least some portion of the companies thirty even while they're saying we have no idea what. The outlook is based on corona virus. That's sort of interesting to me that they're willing to do that. At a time of such uncertainty sort of goes to your point of I mean they must also stocks undervalued. If they're willing to step up in that way right now so interesting couple of Friday's go Scott hosted the show we were. It was probably not the peak necessarily Sara Corona virus. But obviously we were talking about it in Las Vegas Sands vacillating around the sixty five level and we talked about that being your level for an entry point being that it was the previous high back over the summer. Scott question US correctly. Why would you step in here and to Tim's point because a lot of these names have gotten bludgeoned on the back of it I mean? LVS CBS was absolutely breaking out to the upside prior to this and we talked about that sixty five. They'll now here at seventy one. I think it does take out that. Recent high of seventy I five and it's cheaper than GM nineteen times words MGM's probably premium into space close to twenty two and a half so I'm not saying Fitch MGM here. But I am. I'm staying stay long. LVS The idea being that eventually hopefully sooner than later corona virus will be a footnote in history. Let's hope sooner than later. And and the one thing we've learned about the consumer whether it's the American consumer or somebody Macau or wherever else does a casino if they WANNA go. They're going to go and they're gonNA it comeback quickly and the consumers healthy and the consumer at least we can talk all we want about household debt and certainly some of the sensitivities are interest rates but but if you think about where casinos were after the financial crisis in two thousand eight into nine the consumers in a totally different place they had. They had repaired the balance sheet and that was not a place to come in and buy casinos again. So as you pointed it out this is this is a High Avis. Certainly going to be an awful February Gross gaming revenues in January. We're down eleven point three percent they're going to be significantly worse in February for those exposed to Akao but this is not something that doesn't correct itself. I think as you get through into the second quarter assuming we get through this and I know that's that may be insensitive to the to the to the health issues that are out there. But we've seen this before in terms of Asian assets coming through the SARS virus. Yeah because I would assume tim you would say and I don't WanNa go anything on our coverage coming up in a couple weeks when the next starting sees it as out but you gotta just right off the first quarter right. I mean first. Quarter you
Wind Wise Tips for Flying Airplanes
"Welcome aviators to another episode of Aviator Casper names. Chris Palmer it's great to have you here for another subject something. I hope you find useful so I've kind of been doing some more mindset. PODCAST asked recently with. Don't quit. Don't quit fight training some of the things that could help you and your training like the process of of private pilot instrument commercial. See if I did a podcast on each one of those licenses kind of how to avoid burnout and how to build your structure. But I've also wanted to get into some some of the more nitty gritty. Just learned something type of episodes. So I'm going to be doing some more of those as well so I want to talk today about wind-wise tips for flying airplanes. Just this this thought of viewing wind holistically in the flight environment. Because it's it's something that a lot of people don't pay attention to think about as they are doing they're flying and is super important and comes up in a lot the different ways especially during takeoff and landing but can also come up and mountain flying. You see when you're doing your ground reference Maneuvers Ron Reference maneuvers or basically. A A a way of correct for the wind. That's why they exist. They know you find the airplane in different ways. They just WanNa see that. You know how to cry for the wind while you're flying so in this podcast we will look at. What wind is dispelling? Myths and defining wind that's kind of an interesting subject seeing the wind through indicators individualization I think you guys will find some great tips there as well filling the wind by applying visually visualizations to actually controlling the airplane. So taking what we've seen and actually doing something about it and then we'll break down the wind in different phases of flight from taxi. All the way through up and down to a landing and what we are looking for all right so it was dive right in. So what is wind so a a lot of the times when we're thinking of wind especially when we're planted with our feet on the ground on a gusty day we feel when pushing against some of US might have even been in storm strong enough to lean against the wind and feel that push of the wind against us. We might even feel that are back. We're like it's pulling us or we. We kind of feel that resistance of the wind however in an airplane. It's a lot different once we're in the air. A the air is a body of a mass of air the simply moving so it's almost like a cube of air if you can imagine that your airplane is just was frozen in the middle of this ice cube of air and it's just being moved along as part of this weather system. That's really what is happening. The airplane doesn't know. Oh that is Wendy K. At least not when it's not on the ground but it's in the air is just along for the ride so there's a good analogy about this in the but called stick and rudder and when I read this just blew my mind that I'd always been looking at wind in this sense of push and pull it will talk talk about that a little bit later because there are some situations where we wanna be thinking of it in that way but when we're in the air we need to be thinking as if we're we're almost on this train if you've ever been on a train before okay so we're on a train and we know that we're moving along the track but we are not feeling any resistance. We don't feel the wind resistance of what's happening. We can go forward. We can come back. We can sit down. We can go side the side but we don't feel any existence but we're still moving within that space that's essentially what's exactly going on in the air as well. We have this air masses moving along and our airplane. Airplane is in the Air Mass K. Even though we're planning one direction going wrexham moving along with that air mass a little bit as we're going so if we have a headwind well and we're not moving along as fast as we want to not because we're actually getting pushed is because that air masses moving the opposite direction we're moving and so we're not making taking the progress as well if we have a tailwind moving down whilst because that air masses moving with us and we're getting there faster we're getting a little extra How would I phrase this correctly? We're getting a little extra bonus and I don't WanNa say push I don't WanNa say speed because is really were just moving along with that air mass as it moves us along so that that kind of dispels the myth of the push and pull that we usually feel on on the ground in that we are just kind of along for the ride when we're up in the air we don't have that friction on the ground that resistance has planted. Were just just moving along with it now of course to counteract that we can do certain things and we'll talk about more of those methods later on but we're we are just along for the ride in the air in this cube of air. Okay so that is wind. That's seeing the wind and understanding holistically. mystically what's actually happening kind of thinking of things in more of a cruise phase of flight as we're moving along how that's working so that's ask. The big picture of how wind actually works now. Of course we want to be able to define not define the win but we want to be able to see the wind. As well seeing and visualizing I think are two different things seeing is directly seeing which of course we know that air for the most part is invisible and then visualizing is knowing it's invisible but imagining where the air is actually moving so we'll separate the two and talk about it. But I want to talk about some of the things that we can actually look at the determine the wind and then some of the things we can do to visualize the win so this is all seeing the wind. So so we have our official wind indicators. We have went socks which I did a one minute wings episode on this recently you can actually tell how how fast the wind is going or or the velocity of the wind by looking at the wind. SOCK it's in different stages usually increments of three not Safai remember correctly and you can see it in different stages so you can actually look at a Weinstock and how well extended and know how stiff stiff the windows so we have win socks as an official indicator. We have a tetrahedral on actually kind of an airplane looking thing with a tail l.. And everything and we have a wind triangle which more points toward the wind so when triangle and then around that is the segmented circle will and that will actually show you from above it. Shows you what direction the pattern would be so if you had no charts or no nothing else you could fly over an airport. Assuming a hat a segmented circle and see which pattern entry and everything you should do or which direction the patterns should be for different runways. Of course I think win socks are one of those things that we did that. We don't see a lot. We end up in the next the next step we ended up getting the the weather on the radio. Say That's through the loss. Or the Avis or the surface. We get that whether we hear the radio we just go by that wind direction. But I I think a lot of the times we fail to actually just look at the wind sock as taxing out or look at the wind sock as were landing is kind of a final verification of the angle title. Where it's at and I think by doing that? We start to get more into the visualization of the wind and actually seeing based on the runway. How how strong is in? What Engle is it coming out to the runway seeing it is really believing in this case and while we can determine with the automated system or seeing the stock that we are going to take the right runway and you know do a takeoff with a headwind landing with ahead? We'll talk about the importance of that here in a few minutes while we can while we can determine it early to kind of determine which runway we're going to use it's a whole different thing to actually look at the wind sock so that's so it gets us into visualizations where that's an official way with the wind indicator to look at the wind sock and see what the direction is but a lot of tools that we use here in Alaska. Just because there's a lot of off-airport flying and flying in areas especially the mountains where it's good to see how other other other features are reacting to the wind. Of course we don't just have when Sox speckled throughout all of eternity here on earth we need to be able to look at things like trees and know how much the wind is blowing based on that water. How much the wind is blowing based on that? There's a whole science science not science but there's method behind reading water. I haven't really learned it deeply yet but some of us talking about it recently. How how things are white capping on the water? How fast the wind is going the lawsuit of win based on what the the whitecaps look like? So I thought that was interesting but even seeing seeing the water on a lake for example just as an example. If you if you fly up to a lake and you're looking down on it there should should be protected side of the lake especially if they're trees around the lake if there are just bushes are still going to be protected side but it might be a little thinner but what you'll see is that the wind is really calm on one shoreline and then you'll see the ripples on the water separately but the will be really calm on one shoreline and that tells you the exact distance distance or the exact direction. The wind is coming from Because basically the trees bushes are blocking that wind so the wind comes comes over and then it'll finally hit the water several feet ahead or many feet ahead depending on the obstacle. And then you'll see it but you can tell the win based on that seaplane pilots. They know that in the water. There's these white streams. I'm not even sure what they're really called. But there's like these white stripes the the almost go directly with the wind that tend to happen quite a bit in bodies of water especially lakes. I've noticed so trees and water and features in the water blowing snow or dust. You can tell which direction the wind smoke from chimneys top.
Winning the self-driving race means lots of Corporate Parterships
"Building. A robot driver capable of fully replacing human at the wheel is a mission. Maybe even an obsession that has everything that Silicon Valley loves tons of tech and a huge potential prize traditionally. The view is always that you have to win the race. Take any of that price. But increasingly companies are realizing they might not get our alone to see what that means. In practice. I headed to Arizona where several companies taking advantage of the state's welcoming regulatory attitude to self-driving testing. I up WAYMO which is operating a fleet of Robo taxis around Phoenix. Of course I had to take a ride. It was impressively smooth and confidence arriving shortly at Waymo depot please keep your seatbelts fastened until we reach your destination and remember to take all your belongings with you but it was in the operation center behind the scenes where I found out that that is a lot more to running a fleet of Robo taxis and just building super smart cars and putting them on the roads. These are are Chrysler PACIFICA hybrids that. We've outfitted with with the WAYMO hardware and software that runs our self driving fleet. We're in the hundreds of cars across all of our our operations. Rocky Goff is head head of operations are Waymo so you can see we have lifts and you know the type of tools and systems. You would see in a normal garage. But what really makes these driverless cars go is partnerships chips we maintain the proprietary hardware and software that is built by Waymo we partner with with companies who have expertise in you kind of general car maintenance and so we work with them to do tire rotations oil changes. That's not something that We do ourselves. Also Nation Helps Waymo with servicing and maintenance and the company leans on Avis the car rental people to work on the things that could acts like fuelling car's registration and other paperwork and another company company trends. Dev is hiring training and managing all the drivers who helped test these vehicles. A few allows south of waymo is too simple in Tucson which is building self-driving big rigs and testing them on local freeways so we're walking through the the manufacturing area Out to where the trailers are stored chuck price is chief product officer he says partnerships mean a chance to see how the vehicles work in real world conditions. They did a two week trial with the. US Postal Service and a working with other big delivery companies with ups. It is an ongoing thing. We've been working with them. Since last March We are we have been moving cargo for them every single day where we're moving at least one run if not more so even if you haven't had a chance to ride in a self driving vehicle your packages might have as partnerships drive progress in the self-driving race
"avis" Discussed on Farm Small Farm Smart
"On passive solar greenhouse like any good engineer he's admittedly fascinated by the connection between permaculture thermodynamics entropy and with this combination you can bring about a smart design that allows us to take advantage of these concepts and create our own micro climates in the form of greenhouses using modern technology within things like thermal glazing insulation in simple technology like thirty the mass in the form of water or rocks and solar orientation we can create a small space that's allow warmer than the surrounding space just outside ah both spaces received the same amount of solar radiation only one space the passive solar greenhouse maximizes the use of that so Laredo by storing it in containing it within the mass of the structure itself. These structures are pretty low tech overall mood just to the technology is in the materials themselves like glazing the designs themselves are fairly simple and straightforward and anyone that somewhat handy can bill the past solar greenhouse relatively easily in relatively cheaply the resulting structures are versatile and they can be used in a variety of ways solar heat your house provides additional living space or gardening's base and if you WANNA stack functions you can have all of the above so with winner in the near future for much of North America. Let's talk about creating our own little set of the tropics no matter where we are let's get into it passive solar greenhouses with Rob Avis here with Rod Davis Today we're talking about passive solar greenhouses Robson engineer he lives in Calgary and he's one of the owners of Verge permaculture of in Canada rob it decor what is a passive solar greenhouse a Pasolini greenhouse is a greenhouse that is optimized for climate that generally has a lot of sun hours and generally gets quite cold in the wintertime and so the concept of Asif Ciller buildings are typically thought of as as homes will we can apply the same passive solar concepts in a home that we do too we grow food Maseela sense and I know that you can use it to help extend your growing season up there how did you initially get into building in these passive solar greenhouses was at that did you approach it from gardening mentality of I wanNA grow more plans through a longer period of the year there's a budget of reasons I was working for a passive solar housing company and they were looking for ways to extend their market outwards beyond just the house to create some sort of an additional add onto those homes that that would extend out what was possibly there's a son rumors potential aw gardening opportunity but you know just to give you a background of my climate we are Lucky to have one hundred frost free days a year here fact this September we had almost a foot of snow you know a month and a half earlier than we would normally expect it national geographic calls are climate one of the worst hail belts on the planet and given that we are right next to the mountains we have a very montaigne climate basically it's where the Montaigne climate and the continental climate come together so it's not uncommon arrested had very cool nights which means from a plant physiology perspective that our plants generally stopped growing so not only do we have very short growing season but even our nights are cold enough to actually shutter plants down so if we want to protect from hail extend our growing season beyond one hundred days and ensure that our plants continue to to grow in the evening we need to create space that's going to allow them to do and that's what this passive solar greenhouse serves it's essentially an extension of your living space that allows you to start growing plants or using it for other functions and stack other functions in new it when somebody goes about building a passive solar greenhouse would've main design components that they want to consider yeah there's there's a few of them that you you have to get right or mostly so the the orientation is seems pretty pretty straightforward you know if you're in the northern hemisphere you pretty much have gotta get itself or within forty five degrees of south tend to get a lot of losses in solar gain if we get beyond that forty five degree mark but basically you've got pointed towards the Sun just like you would with a solar panel you know an issue that I've seen in a lot of greenhouses that people try to get efficiency really high okay is the transmission the amount of light that they're they're glazing or they're glass let's through we're constantly fighting against kind of two new variables as glazing increases in our value or thermal resistance the transplant city tends to drop and so you end up with very sickly leggy looking plants when you get below about seventy two percent transplant so the higher that number is the trans-pacific number the better for the plants but at the same time trying to maintain some sort of level of several efficiency so if you look at in house while my walls and the greenhouse our veterans later than the average calgary a big home now we're talking twenty to thirty in the wall also the the glazing has a high enough transmissibility but the R. value is down around two which means that the majority of energy being lost spaces is actually coming out of glass installations a really key piece to depending on the type of climate that you're in is going to depend on on how big that are how thick your insulation how thick your walls are going to be here in Calgary I kind of recommend twenty but if you go further north that number's going to increase ventilation is kind of is a crucial aspect of the passive solar greenhouse generally if you don't get the ventilation right you're gonNA YOU'RE GONNA end up with a lot of disease issues and you know we can tend to get very technical about the the the greenhouse but I would say the top two things that we have to really get right the soil in the water and it can get those two things wrong everything else that you've worked so hard for just kind of collapses and so it Kinda comes right back down as principles and that's one of the things we struggled with the most in the last five years is both soil and water given that were growing in raised beds in the greenhouse so you really can't put enough emphasis onto onto making sure we got a great place for those routes to live and a great system for ensuring a consistent water source so there's a lot of points there that you touch on I don't WanNa go back and kind of hit on some of those individually in terms of Orient tation I know you wanNA oriented so the long length the greenhouse is facing south is possible but say property where I can't orient the long length of greenhouse self and a half to run the long lying north south for whatever reason can you have vertical regular walls on the east and west side and use the roof is your solar radiation collector you kind of get what I'm saying if you can't oriented perfectly south or even within twenty two and a half degrees or thirty degrees if you're more like herpin dealer else is there still an option they're just not even worth going down this road yeah no totally it's amazing what you can you can make work there's a lot of bad greenhouses out there that still produce a great crops it's it's all about optimization and so you kind of have to work with what you got if you're trying to position your greenhouse in a place that has doesn't have any sun while it doesn't matter what the orientation is so if you've got good access to the south in the northern hemisphere good access to the north and the Southern Hemisphere you should be able to make it work the like if you go back to base principles in how passive solar homes are built the rule of thumb there is that twelve to twenty percent of of your southern purpose should be glazed and that's kind of how they optimize thermal gain in those buildings generally greenhouse were over using and so the amount of glazing is is generally not going to be a limiting factor the reason we typically recommend longer access along the east west is to increase the amount of growing space and to increase the amount of light coming in relative to its it's what we call aspect ratio But yeah you can you can make really strange shapes work quite well in terms of over glazed things can over glazing make up for lack of a.
Pilot Calls Tower and Receives Instructions That Are All Greek to Him
"Again true pilots stories from the world of generally in this this episode a one seventy two pilot calls tower and receives an instruction. That's completely Greek to him. Of course he is flying in in Greece. This could be interesting. Bring Your Greek dictionary and ride along in say again by Carl Doorman as I entered the down wind leg of the Corfu Greece airport I contacted tower and I did not understand understand a word they said now what to do. It was nineteen eighty four and I was flying from Rhode Island to Israel in one thousand nine hundred sixty exte- Cessna one seventy two with my flight student Aria Rona the trip recently brought us through the beautiful Rhone Valley in France over the Mediterranean NC for three hundred and twenty five nautical miles in instrument conditions and route to Ciampino International Rome's secondary airport as we checked in with Roma approach at nine thousand feet requesting vectors to final at Ciampino. We could hear that the controllers were quite busy we we were assigned to holding pattern at nine thousand feet northeast over the Roma. VR which is adjacent to the Ciampino airport we were preparing to land on runway one four as advised by the Avis. So who do you think were the best air traffic controllers on the entire trip. I can tell you without hesitation. It was the Italians the controllers stepped us down a thousand feet at a time from holding pattern to holding pattern I two eight thousand feet then to seven thousand feet all the way down to one thousand feet and then vectored us to the final approach to runway one four for these controllers were so smooth and so professional as the handled us with kid gloves we switched over to one to zero point five Ciampino Tower and we're cleared to land and then guided to the runway exit where we switched to ground control and taxi to the F. B. over parking we stayed in Rome for two days to see some of the famous historical sites now it was Sunday we were ready to continue our trip the next destination Brindisi on the east coast of Italy just two hundred sixty nautical miles to the southeast we noticed that there was very little air air traffic along the way and at the airport after landing we'd taxi to the FBI to get fuel and we're surprised to find everything was closed at the Brindisi airport. We had forgotten it was Sunday. It did not occur to us that some places at the airport might be closed. We were lucky enough to meet some pilots from the local Brindisi Flying Club. WHO said they could help us? After we told them our plight their club did not usually sell fuel to pilots not members of the club but they graciously made an exception. Thank you Brindisi Flying Club. We then departed from Brindisi to the east one hundred ten nautical miles across another part of the Mediterranean Sea to Corfu an island in Greece also known as Kirk era after listening to the Kirk Avis and contacting Kirk your approach. We were advised to change to frequency one to zero point eight five and contact. Kirk here a tower. We checked in with tower on the downwind leg of runway three five asking for permission to land. I heard a clear response. That sounded to me. Something like Gorky. Mom Bit Blit Loiter. I asked the controller say again his reply. I again sounded similar to Gorky Moment Lipton. Loiter had absolutely no idea what this controller was saying to me. I thought it would be best just to broadcast my intentions and slow and clear English and proceed to runway three five which was a comforting seven thousand seven hundred hundred ninety two feet long as I continue down wind opposite might touchdown point. I again broadcast my intentions receiving again a similar undecipherable reply from the tower. I still understood nothing. I repeated my intentions again. Dan as I turned final received the same response and I landed after taxiing departing. I decided it would be a good idea to visit the tower her see the controller and find out what he said upon entering the tower as the controller began speaking to me here was the same sounding founding voice but now that I could see his lips moving. I had no problem understanding him. I discovered he understood me just fine and that he was telling telling me proceed as requested so much for English being the International Universal Aviation Language Eleven learned not understanding the tower controller is just as bad as lost come stay focused become all fly the airplane and continue your approach broadcasting your intention slowly in clear English look for any light signals from the tower our if no signals land and clear the runway as soon as possible

I I'm, I'm a big fan of, of Heather and her work, and, you know, this, this book in particular is very challenging. And that's what I think, to come across an interview, but I do feel like it's important to set some context for how she kind of arrived at a lot of the observations about kind of ways at the church really needs to improve Christian communities in each improve, which is how her life changed, she's in adoption advocate.

I think that the church quite frankly and I say that church like air quotes big feature. Try think that's what you're saying the church. Yeah, if totally failing for whatever reason it's become this incredibly homogenous, comfortable place, which is in my opinion. And I think the opinion of Jesus the total opposite of what the church should be. So we have found personally, and then in interacting with at this point in life, thousands of families who have a loved one with disability or down syndrome that the church is one of the first places to other them to segregate them.

"Hello from Nashville, Tennessee, or senior editor Tyler Huckabee everybody, and that's it. We do not have I think, for the first time in podcast history, we don't have that last seat fillers. True. I literally we've done seven hundred eighty ish episodes. We've always had for my memory other than maybe the first ten four people, plus somebody recording. And here's the thing we typically have a pretty deep bench to. And I know I know it's print week for us, but you not believe how busy everyone else who's ever set in this four CDs and one person has disappeared entirely, and I'll get to that in a minute. And I'm frankly, concerned, I thought I thought summer was like, you know. Know outguns out, you're relaxing, people aren't doing as much. No, the high-achieving relevant. I'd cast cast. They're out there, traveling the world of crisscrossing. They're changing things taking names. I mean, there are literally dozen people that was scheduled to be on today. And like I said, one missing person that will get to shortly. But it's but listen, we got the skeleton crew were running lean run hot. I knew a little bit more. It's a little bit more wiggle room. There's more laying thrust occupy. It's like when Kramer painted over the center line and he's started weaving. That's us this, I want to say this, because Karen, I jumped into that Twitter conversation. You reference last week about someone concerned about the amount of nonsense and banter, and let me say this. If you're listening to spot gas for the first time Paul's right now download the last three because this was weird. It's real weird and I don't care. This is this is like those episodes of TGI. F- like when Erkel and Jesse from three different shows, we come out and sit on the couch directly address the viewer. And he recap episode. You know what I'm talking about the contract of sitcoms of TGIF. We're just tear down the fourth wall. And now we're just talking to you directly because things don't make sense anymore. That's this episode. The fourth our forth, usually not. And some people are better than others. We don't need to name names. But the fourth is usually sort of tether. You know our maker things that keep things on the rails. They keep the seat belt. They don't let us get far and that's not happening. There's a respectable person in the all when, when the nice lady in the room, you sit up a little straighter. You're not you're not going to give in to your that inappropriate joke. That, that makes you smile. But you're not you're gonna back. You don't know where she's. No, you're going to say it. She's not okay point Cameron. Can you read the note, I bluffed under banter, and that's all people need to know what they're getting into this episode? I saw it. We'll get there. Despite everything we just said, we do actually have a great show coming. Coming up later Heather Avis joins us. She's the author of the new book scoot over and make some room my story of sitting next to a guy on a plane who hog the arm rest. No, it's called scoot over and make some room creating space, everybody belongs, she talks about making the church and our communities, more diverse places. We're excited to have her. Yeah. It's a great interview, super challenging interview man. I'm a huge fan of Heather just to be clear scoot over and make some room has nothing to do with flying to close to arm rest hog on after, you know, the strategy means you need a tank top at every travel. So that me. 'cause there's think like if you're wearing a long sleeve, or like a hoodie, or something more more inclined to be like, well, I can touch a little fabric no the hoodie, I if I'm all the whole exposed, shoulder and arm hunched over that arm wrestling. It's mine that my snow in skin. I mean desperate times coffered for measures Tyler. Really want that arm. Wrestle bear as much skin as you need to do not top, sir, take cups, or now, they're now that's sort of a, that's getting a little a little risky in today's in today's climate because Jesse you and I are talking about this, this Catholic priest getting ratio over Twitter because of his us gestion that people should wear tank tops to church.

"avis" Discussed on The Nice Guys on Business Podcast
"And he said can I help you? And I said, yeah, we're looking to rent a car we wanna go off property for for a meal, we can either take a cab or a weekend rent a car. What would be the best way to go or? No, I we started in the conversation. We came up with should I take a cab? Instead, he goes, well, you can take a cab. But a cab is probably just going to rip you off. Okay. Well, this is good. He's giving me. Some insider information building my trust. And I'm like, okay. He's on my side. Right. So he said, I can get you a car. So he picks up the Avis phone that sitting right on the desk, and he makes a phone call. Now, he's speaking in Spanish to the other person. So I can't hear what they're saying. I have no idea JJ doesn't speak Spanish well enough to know what he was saying. So he says, okay. A buddy of mine is coming. He will be here the next day. And again, I'm thinking great Avis is coming drop the car off. It's going to be great. I said how much is it? Just again, I'm checking he said he said the Avis rate is sixty three dollars. So it's going to be sixty three bucks, white go. Excellent. So the guy comes the next day, and my first clue should have been that. They didn't let him in to the gate. He he the car had the stay on the elder side of the gate. I had to walk outside the gate of the resort to do the paperwork. Okay. Big. And the first thing is this probably is not a good sign, but again JJ's there. She does not like when I when I create a ruckus. So or or when I think negatively just go with it. So I'm like, okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. So I go outside and I started filling out the paperwork, and I notice he's using actually not like a not like a computer printed form, but a form that had been like like Xerox. If you boy. Wait, like a thousand times end like all the words are kinda like they're in English. But they're like really a little bit leery because they've been copied so many times. Yeah. And in addition to that, he's using carbon paper, okay? Hang on. Now. This was to rent a car for to go out to one meal. I wanted to go we wanted to go JJ had a property called floral farms that she wanted to go visit the property, and they have a restaurant in a spa, and they have some neat shops. But it's not on the resort. So we could be there taken a taxi or we rented a car to get there. So we decided to do the car thing. So yes. So it was going to be for not just one meal we figured we're going to spend the day out. We're going to go into the city of Kabo. We're going to just drive around. We're gonna go to this restaurant. We're going to enjoy the day outside of the property guy. Okay. All right. So filling out the paperwork, and I noticed that the bottom it says like in kind of blurry little bit blurry logo. It says euro cars. Like like hold on. This isn't this isn't enterprise. I mean, this isn't Avis this is Europe. And I'm like, I said the JJ I'm like after the, you know, doing all the paperwork might, hey, this, isn't this isn't Avis. This is Europe car. Should I be like a little bit leery? And then we thought now we don't have to be leery because the guy at the hotel kind recommended it. It's a resort. Maybe they're going to be a response if something happens, they'll be responsible and aside from the fact that I felt like I was taken advantage of are led down a false path to get the car. There was no negative experience with the rental car itself other than I felt it was a little bit sketchy the entire like why didn't he just say? Hey, this isn't rate. Avis. This is your zero cars, it's the same price. They have the same details. It was a new car. I mean, it did have the fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror. I thought. Joking. I'm joking. That would have been if it was imported Rico..

"Rapidly changing. World of rental vehicle is here's that interview with, Arthur Arthur thanks. For the hospitality today who we certainly appreciate being here on the. Avis budget campus and. Whenever we can get out and meet with the industry influencers it's a good thing so, nice to see you today in person here us. Well, you and Mary really. Really glad to host you here today, thank you very much. For that so you know whenever we're? Asked about which car rental company Favor it's very easy answer for us because we've been renting for rave is probably at least, twenty five years or so it all started frankly, when I was twenty there was a very kind Avis in Kansas, City who rented a car to me when I was underage but I had a very important business meeting with the NCAA and she, left a very she was very, impressionable obviously so today we're presidents club members with Avis and the loyalty program the auto, rental industry is certainly changing on many levels from the technology we, use to the competition. For transportation to the different ways we rent you know. For, example like zipcar that, you have in your brand so as. The innovation officer for the budget. Group how you're, working to shape the experience for future customers Tell us what's going on Well I think that you really put the finger on the most important word in terms of really, determining how we're, moving? Forward which is customer right so even, before we think about technology even before we actually, look at our own fleets, what we've really been doing I think been doing. Very well over our history not just Whitney coming on board, is really listening to customers especially customers. Like yourself, are loyal customers and again. Thank you. For that loyalty that's amazing, but when I say customer what we really want to do is to start looking at the new behaviors, and not just for, transportation not just from ability but we live in a world is you know now where people expect things on demand always on where you want, it when you want. It. How you want it right and that's for any kind of service how many of us have, binge? Watched at this point right our favorite series as opposed to. Doing it on on appointment so the first thing that we're really doing is understanding how. People want to consume mobile Ability now whether it's a rental car whether, it's, a car share like zipcar exactly like you said or whether it's another form of mobility looking ahead down the road so, that's really where, we're? Spending the bulk of our effort is, trying to understand what people want today what kinds, of problems they want solve, for them and transportation and mobility tomorrow and then. How do we make that magical let's talk a little bit, about since we're their mobility you have. This mobility, lab and Kansas City what. Does that. Look like for the consumer, what are some specific things that are going to affect that experience so that's a great question and we're, really proud of what, we're doing in Kansas City which is a great city obviously it's one where Robert I got in touch us so I think that's really special, also very good for. The. Barbecue there allows yes absolutely also good for adding the pounds unfortunately but the reason why we, picked? Kansas City and what we're doing on the mobility lab really. Has to do with the fact that we are all in on connecting we've publicly said Said that, by the end, of twenty twenty we want our global fleet to be, completely connected and that means. We can talk to the cars. So to speak in the cars can talk back to us with really, important information that would make our customers journeys that, much more comfortable simple and. I'm going to use the word magical a? Lot because it really that's really what we aspire to. That kind of Disney standard but what we. Decided to do even though we already have? A lot of fleet that is connected like we're getting close to? Over over eighty thousand of, our more than five hundred thousand the us fleet that are, connected now what we really. Wanted, to do is to understand what happens when the. Entire marketplace's connected when all of, our cities are connected all of the all. Of, our. Locations how do operations change how, our. Customers experiences change how do we start interacting not just with each other but with smart cities right as those are getting more and more connected so we said the. Best way to Do that as as let's just pick one market and let's make that entire fleet for that market completely connected so Kansas City was ideal because of a couple of things one. Our management there is really really. Good, too it's the right size it's about five thousand Avis vehicles in Kansas City so that's a good good number out of our like I said over eighty thousand fleet, now and three it turns out the Kansas City? Missouri is one of the? Most advanced smart cities on, the globe Google made, a? Big move there a few years ago absolutely. So that makes a lot of sense You have some distinct brands with Avis with budget zipcar PayLess but will focus, on the first three that I just mentioned just give a real brief overview, right now how you see the brands and how you're working to make sure they remain distinctive so so let's begin with with Avis it is an absolutely premiere, brand and what we're doing is how do we continue to. Make that an incredibly incredibly premier experience how do we continue. To, add more features how do, we make it. Much more digital from. User experience perspective with a budget that is really. For value conscious travelers and their how do we, start providing even more services that provide that kind of. Additional value especially for safer for. Families that are traveling and for zipcar that is really really has. Always been geared towards the urban urban mobility needs of. Folks. Who dwell in urban areas and also And more than six hundred campuses Campuses have always been. A. Big part of the absolute absolutely and so one of the ways to think about zipcars not only do we add more services that's actually a really good place to start thinking about where things like car ownership, are going to start to change especially for folks who live in cities and for the millennials and for. Younger. Folks like my own kids right I can see a point where their definition of owning a car is gonna look a lot more like zipcar is today The landline may go away I feel. Like it's all changing so quickly but I agree, with you, in terms of our generation. With our kids as well all right before we run out of time. Talk to us about maybe one form of new technology that's coming into the rental car industry that you really see is going to be part of our customer, experience for the next, ten to twenty years or beyond. Yeah I think that there's a lot of things that we could pick on the one of the things that really distinguishes us we. Think. That a Thomas vehicles self driving vehicles robot cars whatever you wanna call it it's not a matter of if it's a matter of when and how so that's why one of the first things that we did, when we started innovation or corporate innovation effort here at Avis budget group was to partner with Waymo which. As. You know is Google alphabet owned driving unit and one of the reasons we wanted to partner with them is their mission Shen is really how do you through autonomous vehicles and self driving literally dilemma Nate traffic, accidents and fatalities globally, we loved their mission and second. You're working with him out in the Phoenix area right now yes we are We are and so we have we have a multi-year exclusive. Agreement with Waymo that we actually provide fleet management and fleet management service and we actually are retrofitting and expanding our own facilities to provide that kind of management to the Weymouth fleets in Phoenix and also to their drive so Arthur, to put you on the spot when you say it's not a, matter of. If but when, you're talking very. Large travel audience around the country timeframe that for us while there are a Thomas vehicles on? The, road today Especially on the test side but I would anticipate that you would start seeing some elements of self drive in parts of your journey In North America and in select markets starting as soon as twenty, thousand nineteen into twenty very. Limited definitely is going to. Start seeing them and you'll see. Some that are really more commercial Arthur listen and we could go on I really appreciate the time we appreciate the sit down. Today we're going to be. Talking to, Jeff Kaelin, coming up a little bit later in. The show. Really nice to. Meet you. Today so thanks for your time you too as well and thank you for coming out here, thanks Arthur thanks so much all. Right we're going to have another.

"Butterflies or dragonflies or honeybees sometimes we might even confuse them for fairies they bring such magic and delight everywhere they go but you would be surprised to know that the fairy world has a particular admiration and love for a very different bug one that often makes people rather nervous yes i am talking about yellow jackets they are the little wasps that have bright yellow and black bodies and often travelled together looking for sweet things to eat many a man woman and child has been known to run in the other direction when they encounter yellow jackets and people have taken great lengths to get them to go away people behave as if yellow jackets had a particular grudge against them in the avoid them at all costs so you would be surprised indeed to know that yellow jackets love people love them want to be around them why else would they build their nests so close to us it is very common in the summer months to see yellow jacket nests tucked under eaves or inbetween wooden shingles or stuck to rafters in barns or garages in fact their favorite spots to build nests are where they can see people close every day the thresholds of doorways if yellow jackets could have their way they would all build nests under the top of the door gem in the front door that would be perfect for them that way they can greet people every time they go in and go out like little dorman and they do greet people all day long they visit with people to whisper good morning or good evening or to inquire into their day or to complement the weather and wished them a peaceful and happy day they see people as being very similar to them both like to build both have big appetites both like to live with others and both like to work hard they have so much in common but people don't see it that way when they see yellow jackets they don't see all the commonalities they only see the possibility of being stung so they wave their hands to shoe the yellow jackets away in run in the other direction this does not go over so well with the yellow jackets for even though their intentions are well meaning in their motives are nothing more than the desire to relate it doesn't change the fact that yellow jackets have bad tempers very bad tempers they take all the hand waving and running away personally and it just makes them mad and sometimes well it's true they will sting and their stings hurt that is a fact the older yellow jackets have learned to manage their tempers by avoiding the temptation of getting too close as much as they want to fly right up to the little girl's ear and whisper hulo or fly right up to an old man's nose and wave good morning or sit on a woman's shoulder and join her for a walk they avoid it they have learned from their ferry friends that being close without being seen or heard is best they wait until the people are distracted or engaged in something and then they visit they whisper in ears and ride on hats and enjoy the view from shoulders only when they know the people won't notice for if they do notice well we know what happens next some of the younger yellow jackets however have not learned this lesson and will often get themselves into trouble and this is a story about one such yellow jacket his name was avis and he lived in a small nest tucked up in a south facing gable peak of a little cape home on the outskirts of town avis lived with all his brothers and sisters and cousins as well as.
