President Biden calls for unity in Inauguration Day message

"Ronn Owens simply put. I feel so much better about this country today better than I felt in the last four years. It's not the president Biden is on evident by any means. But he is genuine. His calls for unity and respect our sincere and much needed. I think you made an excellent gesture yesterday when he promised he would be president for all Americans, saying, I will fight his hard for those who didn't support me as those who did. What a breath of fresh air Unlike Trump, Biden doesn't approach politics is a blood sport. As he said in his inaugural address. Politics doesn't have to be a raging fire, destroying everything in its path. Every disagreement doesn't have to be cause for total war. Watching the laying of the wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Yesterday, I was struck by the unity exemplified by the presence of three of the living. Former presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton joined Biden and Vice President Harris for the traditional Inauguration day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, of course, have been political disagreements between them over the years, but it's important to note how they've risen above them and shown the United for the country. Last night, I interviewed Kate Anderson Brower, author of Team of five, the President's Club in the age of Trump. She did in depth research and the most exclusive club in the world. Exploring how former presidents stay in touch with one another, and at times offer their advice to their successors. She made it clear that no matter what Trump wouldn't be a member after leaving office And it wouldn't be because of his political beliefs, but his lack of character it somehow, you know that when he finishes his term or terms, Joe Biden will be

"Trump is much more influential behind the scenes than people think I know that she was very influential when they were deciding on Mike Pence's VP. I I did some reporting on that and that she was, she was the one saying that they needed to pick pence because her husband had all this baggage. You know they needed somebody who is going to get the Christian conservatives in line and. I think that shows that she's Savvier than people think Malania, but she is not warm and I mean. That's just undeniable. At think that Jill Biden is much. Much warmer much more like a Michelle Obama or Laura Bush like able to connect with people affectionate with children, and all of that that I think we've. We've kind of been missing that kind of a warmth in our first lady, I think. Do you think that would make a difference right now? In the kind of moment that we're in with the pandemic with black lives matter you know what what would it look like to have a more vocal more present first lady while I think? Michelle Obama were first lady. It would obviously be a better is she would be able to speak to the black lives matter movement in a way that no one else can, and when you know Dea Pendleton was killed. She went to her funeral and that was a huge moment in in her time. As first lady and I think that during the pandemic. We really didn't hear much from wants trump in. Every now, and then she would send a tweet about you'd the seemed always kind of tone deaf to me about you know spending time with your family and enjoying time at home or something when people are really struggling I mean she just has a really kind of detached way of approaching this role in In you know that's what I. When I wrote this op Ed, for CNN I had said that I is, she did an interview one of her rare interviews where she said that the hardest part of being first lady is the criticism and people trying to make money off of you an end to me. The in studying first lady is the hardest part is like witnessing the devastation that people face when they lose their homes for visiting six kids in the hospital, and any just seems so like it just seems so ego centric to me, so yeah, if we hadn't Joe Biden in office right now I think it would be just a a more. Human face on on that role. There's a lot of attention right now. Of course on a removing statues of people who were who were racist in the pastor had other problematic aspects. Things like removing Woodrow Wilson's name from the Public Policy School. At Princeton, we think. How should we be thinking of former presidents? Vice Presidents you know are. Is this way that we make them larger than life that we literally make statues of? Of them and things is, is that problematic? IS THAT FITTING INUIT? How how do they sort of reacting to to this move to to remove names? Remove statues, and and what that might mean you know it's so complicated I. Think it depends on the person you know entirely. If you were these somebody who was a traitor to the country you know when in in was ended up. Siding with the confederates during the civil war or something like that, that's a really with the president's Tyler. Did I think that that's something? That's you know clearly terrible. And then it gets more complicated with Thomas Jefferson right and he and his relationship with Sally Hemmings, and the slaves that he had on his plantation I mean that is just something that we haven't grappled with fully, and if you're. Depends on each person in each President I did follow the Woodrow Wilson Story and that does make sense because he was, he was saying and doing things that were even racist, even considering the time that he was president. As you do, put it in context, but some of what he he said at the time was you know even out of a the norm? What one would have expected you know. During a time when there was. A lot of racism in there still is obviously a lot of racism in this country, but it's a tough question to answer I don't know I mean. What do you think? Yeah I mean I. I have a tendency to not want to lionize anybody. But you know on the other hand I, think it's possible I like that idea of sort of contextualising in the time in place you know if if it was a like Washington own slaves, and that's terrible in slavery is. Okay, but it makes more sense in his time than it would have later. You know so i. I think. You're right that it's complicated, but but I'm okay with removing all statues of everybody. We do put Awada these people on a pedestal. I was listening to a by. She's a great Canadian, but she's talking about Costlo and havoc, also like everyone thinks he's just amazing, but he was actually. You know kind of a jerk and there were a lot of other artists who were more talented. You could say than he was for some reason. We kind of put people on this pedestal and. The, like as he said, lionize them, and there's no, there's no getting rid of it, and there are so many more people who would be worthy of that kind of praise that never got will never get. Which is Kinda Sad? So last question for me is tell me about this relationship between George W, Bush and Michelle Obama. What the Heck's going on there? I mean it is a really sweet relationship. Right into this. Really it is a genuine friendship. They do get along I. Mean they sit next to each other at? Events because of just a Manassas the way it is with protocol that. The lineup is always that she's going to be sitting next to him. So that's where they started talking. And you know the whole exchanging of Hug the Sonian African American. History Museum was very intentional. You know that he by talk to you said that they both do really like each other and when Obama went to George H W Bush's funeral. You know Bush gave her this huge bear hug that he didn't read anyone else with that same warm, but it's also done so. So that we can see it. It's right. It's so that we can see that that there is this friendship that crosses party lines and gender lines, and everything else and so I. I do think it's genuine Biolo- counts it is, but there's an undertone to it that it's it's something more to when the both of them realized that it's more now than ever for people to see these very sweet interactions between the two of them. Yeah, no, it's. It's lovely when you see it. Much I couldn't be nice to him but okay. Yeah, it's a i. mean the men's especially is just so human. Right? It's. It's like what we're missing right now is just that. Human touch that by the OBAMAS billy I mean, she was just amazing at it at making fun of ourselves and having fun in those late night. Television interviews all of that. That Malania can't do, and I know that you know in talking to her closest friend in the white. House says that she feels a lot of pressure She's following Michelle Obama's footsteps. Who wants to do that right, so you have a little sympathy for her..

"For any sitting president. Because they they don't want constant input from the people who held the job before but I think there was always a sense of you. Know what becomes of these men and in that chapter that subchapter I talk about two examples of former presidents. Who went on to have these incredible careers? John Quincy Adams of course became a member of Congress which is incredible to think of then William Howard. Taft became a Supreme Court justice and so chief justice and to think of that ability to kind of have a life after the presidency. I thought was fascinating too right. And the other aspect of that. Is that former presidents in general have learned from these unwritten rules to to not try to make things more difficult for the current president will go into more detail on that. But you had a great story about bill. Clinton actually reaching out to George W Bush's national security advisor Candi Rice. Because he was going to be traveling to China. He was set to give. I think it was in Hong Kong. He was set to give a speech for a hefty sum of money. He needed the money after the presidency. But it was right at the time when There was a plane that had gone down in China and the Bush administration was trying to negotiate the release of servicemen. Who were with the plane and tell me how that worked. Bill Clinton felt he had the needs to reach out to the White House to say out of respect for the office and for the current president. I'm just letting you know we got an issue here right right and I think that you know is there. Is there a message? I should be delivering on behalf of the American government to because there is still that protocol where you don't have somebody who you know when Nancy Pelosi travels abroad for instance. She doesn't criticize President Trump. Because there is a sense that there should be loyalty and a common bond among Americans that I think that that translates also to former presidents and Jimmy. Carter is somebody who who stepped out of bounds many times and spoken his mind and that has won. Ham ostracism from the President's Club and in there's a lot of animosity there that they feel towards him. George H W Bush was very upset at former president for his weighing in during his administration And I think that we see Carter and trump. Although they are two totally different presidents couldn't find starker contrast really. That's one thing they have in common that they just do. Speak off the cuff. In the way the other presidents do not right. It's it's fascinating that there are so many norms and institutions. That this president has has changed or simply doesn't buy into and yet some of these like this one avoiding criticizing sitting president. Jimmy Carter broke that seal with several administrations before this one in a sense pave the way for trump's attitude bomb but to Carter's credit and I believe you note this that he later did apologize in particular to George W Bush for criticizing very bluntly the Iraq war and specifically calling George W Bush. The I believe the worst presidents. He ever the worst presidency he'd ever seen but he did apologize later for that and Bush seems to have accepted that I think Bush said something like. Oh Hush it's fine. You know in. That says a lot about their relationship that they could speak to each other that way and also I know feels Still I think slightly guilty about what he said about Chelsea Clinton because there was a time where he was critical of the Clinton's decision to send Chelsea to a private school. You know the Carter famously. As Lee said Amy to Public School in D. C. and so Carter lashed out at Clinton's end made reference to this decision that they had made send Chelsea to private school and I think the another part of the protocol here is that you don't bring the children of the president's first lady's into any beef that you have with them so I think that's something. He's regretted bright. One of the other rules you talk about is that current president's should not fear asking for help from former presidents and in fact some interesting cases of this going back even John Kennedy who Dwight Eisenhower his predecessor was not much of a fan of Kennedy swallowed. His pride called him after the Bay of Pigs and said what? What are we going to do here and got some real advice from him? How this played out with the more recent presidents and do you think that trump is in his remaining time in office More likely to go down that road than he has been today. And that's a great question. I I don't think that president trump is going to go down that road ever but he has once he reach out to to Jimmy. Carter was he. Did he called Jimmy Carter at his house. Jimmy Carter was actually at a friend's house down in this tiny town in plains Georgia where he lives he was at the buffet line. There you got a phone call from President trump to talk about China and foreign policy in. It's interesting it was a couple weeks after by interview with President Trump and in that interview trump indicated that he thought Carter had gotten a raw deal. Let Carter wasn't given the respect he deserves and I think he saw Carter as a fellow outsider not into this elite group of Obama Bush and Clinton who kind of looked down their noses at him and uh so I think there was some common bond there but I can't see trump and we see this now with the pandemic. Newsman asked about this reaching out to any former president. In fact all we've seen is he's lashing out on twitter when Bush posted that video about compassion trump. Lash out about that which I thought was odd because it wasn't a direct attack on him. I think he's saw that way. And then of course with President Obama. He's been basically saying that the swine flu and the their inability to tackle that has somehow so has something to do with this or their mishandling of that has to do with this pandemic and so. I think he's taking every opportunity to do the opposite of what? Jfk Did We'll come back later to some examples. Where previous presidents have used former presidents effectively for national security purposes? But some of the other unwritten rules uniting in tragedy as well as coming together to celebrate on occasion that is former presidents. Don't often hang out together. They don't socialize. They don't do a lot of public activities together but they do to come together and particularly good and bad times. Talk through that one a little bit while. I think that you know again. This gets to the question of empathy and this feeling that as you say they always realize that there are only a handful of them. Who knows what this is like. It's interesting to note that Richard Nixon is the most modern court president who had no living former presidents alive after. Lbj passed away. There was a period of time. There were he had no former president to talk to which I think is really interesting given Watergate. Would he have asked anybody else for advice? But I think that the sense that they come together to celebrate each other at Presidential Library openings and then also at funerals. It's it's a very important part of this camaraderie that they have and I asked president trump. If he would go to President Obama's library opening and he he looked taken aback when I asked him the question. Because I don't really thought of it. And he said Noah why would he? I don't think he'd invite me either. And that's Kinda surprising thing to hear because as you know we are so used to seeing them all sitting there on the Diet together and it's this moment of unity and president trump would be such an odd set in that group very much like he was George W Bush's funeral but probably been more so you're right though. There there is precedent for it. Which is Senator John? Mccain's funeral. There was no invitation extended to the President. And in a sense it became about the president in about his non-attendance whereas even for some former presidents who don't get along personally or certainly didn't agree with each other's politics they do have a habit of pulling together and saying this is about something greater than how we feel about each other such that the Bush family did invite the president to the funeral of Bush. Forty one he did attend now lives there and saw it. He came in right at the last minute. He sat with arms crossed. He often didn't participate in some of the service and then got out as quickly as he could afterwards. That's true but he did come. He did participate in the other presidents lined up with him in in that row. So maybe there's something to this that he was willing to do that. It did not destroy. The event in any way was odd but it was not disruptive and I don't know does that establish a precedent that on some things. Maybe he won't be quote a full member of the president's Club but for things like former presidential funerals it would create more of an issue not to invite him than it would to have him there. That's a good point and and what I talked to one of George W Bush's top aides. He said you know as you say the McCain funeral became all about trump and trump's absence and so to include him it makes it might much more sense to include him the not to. I think there's a difference between library openings funerals I think a celebration is less mandatory than of a somber events like a state funeral. So I can see that I can see president trump for instance And hopefully it doesn't happen anytime soon but you know President Carter's if uniroyal at some point attending because they also see each other as outsiders so I know that he's on the guest list Because I've talked to people close to heart earned the he would certainly be invited to that funeral. If there is a a state funeral that's allowed anytime over the next couple of years because of the pandemic but So I have I have thought about that but to your point about tragedy. Another thing that I thought was how how the Unite Tragedy another thing that I was struck by his relationship that Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower had were. They really. Were not close with them. When Kennedy was killed day got together at Blair House and talks along with their wives. And that was another really. Poignant moment where I think there was this sense of humanity and they're drawn together when a tragedy of that magnitude happens absolutely some of the other unwritten rules treasure the White House itself and most presidents have made a big deal of this Whether it's their relationship with the the staff in the residence or whether it is the physical plant of the White House talk about how trump feels about the White House. Well you know I. I have these sources from my book. The residents where I interviewed a lot of housekeepers and butlers who had worked in the White House and when that Time magazine story came out a while ago a word trump the White House dump. He has denied saying that. But I talked to some White House staff as a former florist. Who said you know? This is just just so terrible to hear on it. Seems like a slap in the face for all the work that we do because there is a staff there about one hundred people who keep the residents up futilely. But it's obviously a smaller. I mean the White House is you know is huge on screen. But when you're actually they are it does not have the enormity and kind of the flashy. Ns that I think trump is used to so that I have interviewed people who recently retired from the White House in who works when they are when trump was president so these are housekeepers of Butler and they say that he is actually very respectful..

"Ended up having a relationship with Bill Clinton when Clinton was in office End So I was always interested in that and then with the trump presidency. You know he's just such a norm breaking president and I wanted to get into how he has affected the president's club this group of living former presidents. At the time I started the book George H W Bush was still alive. And you know how. He's changed their relationships with each other. And how they view him. And you aren't the first person to write of course about the president's Club but you are the first person to explicitly about trump in the context of that Presidents Club. The relationship that trump has or in many cases doesn't have with his predecessors so I'd like to walk through some of this because this this will be more about tradition than law more about norms and understandings than legislation. But there has been a robust pattern. That's built up over time around some unwritten rules about how former presidents operating. I'd like to to walk through each of those in. Have you explain the concept and maybe give an example for some of them as well to illustrate how former presidents in general have come to behave with one another and with the current occupant of the Oval Office? So let's start with your first. Unwritten rule of the President's club honor shared history. What do you mean by that? Well I mean that the presidency is bigger than any one man or woman one day and that there should be a sense of respect and even grudging admiration for the people who came before you and I think that that has been the case for almost every president and and to be clear there have always been rivalries. Obviously you have Theodore Roosevelt running against taft his chosen successor as a third party candidate. I mean you know. There's a lot of bad blood over the years but the point really that I chose to make in the book is that there's been nothing quite like this and you know get into the relationship between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson and you know their their long separation where they weren't talking for quite a long time and then suddenly became friends after really having a a terrible relationship with each other and I did ask president trump. I ask him if he thinks he could ever be friends with any former president in the same way that John Adams and Thomas. Jefferson became friends before. They're they died and she said anything's possible so I just think it's interesting to see if you know if these fences can eventually be mended in my I think in Donald Trump's case that's that's not going to happen just because there's been so much vitriol animosity out them in history suggest it's possible. I mean the the tension between Adams and Jefferson was. I mean to the point of you know Adams partisans claiming that Jefferson was sacrificing dogs on altars at his home and people assuming that John Adams was going to become a monarch so if they can get over that and even in the modern sense. Of course you've had bitter. Election fights between some presidents and some presidents who wouldn't even attend the others inauguration within the last hundred years and yet most of them end up coming around with at least some of their successors or predecessors to form relationships. That works so I think it is something about that shared of only not quite a handful but only a few dozen people know what it's like to be president. Richard Nixon said you cannot walk in those old rooms without feeling the heavy footsteps of those who have gone before you and just the sense the history in that house. And that's what I wanted to know. I mean here. I was sitting across from President Trump. He's at the resolute desk. Where so many decisions from the Cuban Missile Crisis? Two nine eleven you know have been come across the president's desk and did that give him empathy and I think that was a key thing I was looking for was. Did he have empathy for the men who came before him to see? Just how difficult this is. An I mean the answer to that is no and that was kind of I. Guess shouldn't be that surprising right. But I think it's hard to hear so a corollary to that too honoring shared. History is another unwritten rule of the president's. Club which is respect the office and won another talk a little bit about how specifically that has evolved with some of the more recent former presidents and then how trump's view is different. While I've been as we were we were saying. There's this sense of reverence for each other. That I think the presidents have and it's it's very difficult to go from being the most powerful person in the world arguably right Ed to suddenly not mattering that much anymore and I know Alexander. Hamilton was particularly worried. About what would happen. He said that he was concerned. Ex Presidents would wander around people like discontented ghosts and that there should be something for them to do. You know there was even talk of a council of former presidents that should get could get together and advise the sitting president which I could imagine would be an absolute nightmare.

Georgia's Reopening Has Been 'A Disaster' For Some

"Here in the U. S. where in just two months thirty three million people found themselves unemployed most states have decided to ease up on stayed home recommendations in Georgia governor Brian kept made the announcement at the end of April the state would begin opening hair salons tattoo parlors and other businesses while restaurants theaters and other places can operate with drastically different rules across much of the state though there hasn't been a clamoring to get back people there are wary too for that let's turn to Michelle right reporter with our affiliate WSB in Atlanta your governor Brian camp was one of the first to say let's open back up again I want to get some response from the people there in Georgia when he said that what did you guys think you know what he said it was it was really shocking because our shelter in place order that he had put in place on the third of April was set to expire on the thirtieth of April and so he came out and said well you know what on the twenty fourth we're going to kind of open some businesses up and among those are gonna be hairstylists barbers massage parlors at two shops and bowling alleys and still a lot of people were questioning is this the right time to open up those type of businesses and then he opened up dining restaurant to movie theaters I can honestly say I don't know many people who have gone to the movies everybody that I've talked to is is not trying to to go to the movies as far as restaurants concern there are still a lot of restaurants that are only doing take out because there are like at least thirty nine requirements that they have to make sure are in place for those restaurants can open up and serve customers so what about the the the cases themselves in the state of Georgia since this re opening we have seen the numbers go back up which is what a lot of people have predicted might happen exactly and they continue to increase in fact there's a story I was doing on Thursday morning about eight nursing homes in the city of Atlanta that has a hundred cases right there in that nursing home and took everything continues to climb and so there it's interesting there's a group of people who are out and about like nothing ever happened I think they were just super happy to get out and then there's another group of people who are still like I'm not going anywhere I am going to remain sheltered in place until things start to drop what about the the the rural population African American population there in Georgia we have been hearing a lot about Terrell county I think it is where cases are very high and the health care system there is this whole counties that don't even have a hospital or even you know a lot of doctors offices nearby so tell us about the situation for some of those folks in state of Georgia yeah it's really quite challenging because we do have a lot of small counties a lot of rural counties especially in central and south Georgia and one of the county's early on that got hit with Albany County where they had a or Albany which is in south Georgia that's the city there and they had a super spreader who had gone to a couple funerals and they were over run with aces now we're moving more up in the hot spot in north Georgia up in the Gainesville population and we do have populations both of African Americans and Latinos that have been extremely heavily yet and heavily affected by this virus the Fulton County health department which is then not Atlanta the you know the state capitol resides in Fulton County into what Fulton County is doing is they're starting to open up some neighborhood testing sites to hit the African American population populations that don't necessarily have vehicles that can get to some of the suburban testing sites and mass transit you know hasn't really been running to effectively so they haven't been able to get out and get the test done so we're probably going to see another in crease in in testing and in confirmed cases we do have a lot of meat packing facilities in Georgia as well checking capital of the nation at least and so there are a lot of concerns that in those meat packing areas there's going to be an increase in what that looks like even as people are trying to get back to work what it looks like as we increase testing and we have more cases and is it because we're having more cases because we're having more testing or is it the spread is really spreading more and we're putting ourselves more risk and that's what a lot of people are wondering in

"Month apple and Google announced they're teaming up to develop Bluetooth contact tracing technology but even with Bluetooth apparent security superiority over GPS tracing it's not perfect says Jennifer grant from the ACLU companies haven't always had a history of taking people's privacy seriously so the devil will be in the details he says there are two key measures that developers need to keep in mind when putting together these apps in order for it to be helpful people have to trust it and that means it has to be private and it has to be voluntary our information can't go to the government or to a big company and our choice to use it has to be entirely ours then we could knowledges that there are privacy trade offs when it comes to technologies like this but that doesn't need to be the case with Bluetooth tracing he says especially if developers use a decentralized model where when you offered in my thing connect routed me seeing your name tag and using my name tag the exchange rate of numbers you can take them is at also it was secret card whenever defense connect they come with completely different random number of random passcode so that if I were to fall sick modern upgrading and list if you I've been in contact with our upload

"Welcome back to the Brower home power you're doing we've got a call that I want to play and it just it makes my skin crawl listen to it it I think it's a lot of homeowner's worst nightmare and we were called which I thought was kind of cool but I will listen to the call mills talk about okay great therefore our mechanical this is Cynthia how may I help you yeah there are many inspector I live over in fair oaks on the sink and a small older house I've got a a rat problem basically it's so severe that I have I have a company coming over to do some treatments and setting traps and stuff basically the situation is I think so bad that I need to get out all my old insulation that was original to the house which really doesn't have any R. value anyway and I want to know if you guys do that type of work were you re mediate on the old get out the old into a sanitization and then just new blown in and I think I'm gonna have to replace my duct work also yeah absolutely we can take care of that and we also can feel at areas where they could be coming in from as well yeah he's going to do that today so but yeah what what sort of message deduced yeah it's a sanitized and so forth and we remove the insulation that's in there and get that all cleaned out and everything like that wouldn't take care majority of everything I have a lot of that old insulation you guys are familiar with that that type of work and then again like a spray disinfectant or something like that I'm not exactly sure what the name of the product as I can get a sentiment out there that can give you an estimate for all of this and that he Goldberg that the particulars as well so yeah I'll be interested in replacing my doctor could H. I could see from the photos that the guy did they get through some of that and I think it's just it's so dusty up there yeah I'm just gonna tear it out and start from scratch yeah that's a good idea you might help I I have a new heating air system split systematically put in back but they don't even they don't do ductwork anyway just about how long ago it had installed about not very long ago about six eight months something like that okay yeah that in call you guys sorry a fastback okay no worries okay your help so that would be great yeah and do you know after that they come in that it needs to be laughed before anybody else container I had a brain or how were they radicalized in a row that they're doing it with traps but I don't think there is you had much luck I I had some traps out and I think they got trapped wise you know so I don't know what's going to take place does have to you know see what other options there are if the date if you know he's come back to check the traps today and then that small ceiling area you know that type of work could gather myself but I just want it done yeah we will definitely get that all taken care of for you know if you did a great and what and what day are you looking now he says I can do tomorrow Vettel eleven that would be perfect how did you hear about a disability of your your up front and in just a home insulation yeah this is it it seems to be affecting my health too as far as like some skin problems and stuff like that I couldn't really pin down at first thought last year you guys did a good job so I want to give you chance for sure well thank you very much for giving us the opportunity we're talking tomorrow eleven correct all right you're welcome have a great day okay you too thank you thank you bye bye yeah the urgency in this man's voice was quite apparent I think it bordered on emergency that's right I absolutely I I understand and you got rats in your attic I mean that's not the sort of thing you're going well you can get to it in the next couple weeks that's great now and he said it was affecting him to go yeah absolutely absolutely it would affect me you know and then you know that it isn't the follows that up with they've damaged the ductwork okay may your the home energy pro talk about that and what the potential of various well how would they actually when they chew through the duct work they get into it but and then they run down the ducks stream and then they can't figure out how to get hold okay so without water and food we usually know what the outcome is so and it's not good it's not good now and then there's repercussions from that actually happen and so you know the smells and everything so it yes it's not so actually what we want to do like he talked about is when we get all that old insulation out we get everything all sealed up in the attic that stops any of that air from coming in from the attic into the house the other thing that actually happens is the type of insulation that we put in the animals mice and rats they love that white and pink and yellow fluffy stuff they love because they can get in and they can hide the feel safe and so you'll actually see little trails if you act would they just keep going down the same path ways they make these little size of a half dollar actual pass in the insulation you can very evident so we put the new insulation and it's very tight it's compact and it's actually a type of insulation that they don't like so they won't get in it almost every time they and they don't feel safe if they're on top of it so what will actually happen even if he doesn't feel the static up and find out exactly all the places that those animals are gate man when it comes to mice and rats that lacks the go to somebody else's attic because they just don't like the type of insulation that we put in attics sounds like a winner to me exactly okay now one of the things he asked about is sanitization you sanitized so what happens is is that when we vacuum everything up the number twos get it pulled up with the vacuum the number ones because the insulation is like a sponge it actually holds all that number ones and so when we go in and vacuum it all up we pull it out of the house so everything is all contains yes it's kind of it's not like anything that we spring in the attic and sanitize it but everything is with our species is removed okay well I think from from what I heard the caller say the number one thing that he was interested in is getting that stuff out of there and number two he didn't want to return all right I think that's a very very good plan so if you want to know more visit Brower mechanical dot com and there's a lot of information there on this specific topic are you thinking about batteries generators Generac Briggs and Stratton or portable generator from a big box store are you even asking the right questions the home energy pro answers these questions and explain your options coming up okay we're interviewing solar.

What is the difference between a whole house fan and air conditioning?

"We made a bold promise when we left the last segment about how you can install a whole house fan and that might eliminate the need for five solar panels that seems like a you should return on investment that's right I I'd love to have you talk about that because that's just that almost falls into one of those categories of land seems almost too good to be true yeah you're thinking if you arrive thank yeah exactly so you know when when you look at you know how is a solar system designed so you know when you invite us solar contractor at your home the first you know in the one of the things that he wants is your utility bills and so we're looking at is is how much energy how much electricity does your home consume over the course of the year so what in in what we do is we look at what's the difference between March and April in June July August and September what's that spike how much of a difference is there between the March and April bills and the rest of the summer months and that that increase is almost always due to electrical to air conditioning is the energy that it takes to run our air conditioning systems so what we do is we look at what what is it costing you to condition your home and the reasons why we want to do that is we wanted to stand how many solar panels which you need just to run your air conditioning system so if you said Hey I'm tired of these high bills in the summertime and I just want to put in a solar system to handle my air conditioning needs well we we look at that and then we actually determine Hey if you put in a high efficiency air conditioning system yes so you get the attic right whatever it actually is what's the actual savings of doing these energy measures compared to how many solar panels you don't need to buy so if you upgrade the attic how many less solar panels you need if you upgrade your heating and air conditioning system and the air conditioning site how many panels don't I need because I got my ducks you'll look at my system sized right I got a higher efficiency system get the what are these things I'm doing and then like you're talking about the whole house fans so we'll show people what's your maximum opportunity of reduction of solar panels by installing a whole house fan so will actually show you now that that when I say maximum opportunity it is utilizing it for all the whole house fans benefits it's not just the evening time it's the more intimate so understanding that we're trying to use it for its full maximum benefits so you if you invite us into your home we're going to show you the differences in just you know if you get a whole house fan how many solar panels would you not need to buy to get a new heating and air conditioning system if you get an attic upgrade what are these things that are going on in related to how many solar panels that you don't need to buy okay you're you're you know you're you're you bring up a lot of good points here and I've got to think anybody listening right now is really going to key in on the don't need to buy that now like you said if you're going to buy a whole house fan in whole house fans have changed dramatically in the last five or ten years I mean I used to selling a Huey helicopter in your living room now you can barely hear them if you doubt that that bad at all visit the Brower home energy show room at the end intersections sunset and Whitney in Rocklin you can hear one operating it will amaze you really really is quiet but when we start talking about the opportunity to decrease and not by solar panels I think it's insane to start with that you want to encourage people to not buy solar panels but you look at the investment that these people are making in themselves long term and it's it's tremendous it really is tremendous and this is why we tell people to come to workshops because it's like you're taking an hour and a half and you're going to expand what you know about this about this particular topic and how specifically played a place to each individual homeowner because it's not a group thing it's each and each individual thing and how you use electricity and that's why when they do this they will understand why our whole house fan does who actually made the need for about five solar panels because of the other things that can be done right if you're using a for a Allah topper to energy absolutely okay you teach them how to use it to start just turn it on and turn off there's a lot more to it than that that's right they are a manual thing they're not for everybody right so there if you have you know if you have allergies or you don't you know you're already concerned about the amount of dust in your home whole house fans may not be right for you because they're something they're manual right our heating and air conditioning system I can turn it on with my smartphone my whole house fan I can't do that I have to be home to a goal in open up windows and turn the device on so it's something manual M. it's also as you know because I'm opening windows and I want to use this in the morning and I want to use it at night it might be a safety concern you know depending on what's going on in the neighborhood so I got open windows the safety I've got to you know maybe Dustin allergies that you know are an issue and it's something that's manual so if those three things in your something that do you know that are okay with you then the opportunity is fantastic for a whole house fan well that sounds like something that could but you would be covering in your workshop absolutely probably report pretty great detail because if they can't do this as other options they have right now okay if that makes sense and this is something you really want to explore come out to

GM plans to pull out of Australia, New Zealand and Thailand

GM plans to pull out of Australia, New Zealand and Thailand

"A big name in business news today is General Motors which is taking a billion dollar hit. In order to scale back its global operations. The company has announced its retiring. It's iconic Australian car brand holden which means it will no longer sell vehicles in Australia and New Zealand. With the exception of Niche specialty cars. The company is also going to stop selling chevrolets in Thailand. The big reason GM's ambitions to sell more electric cars marketplace's Marielle Zegarra reports twenty years ago about one fifth of the new cars. People bought in Australia were made by GM. Now it's less than five percent and the numbers aren't much better in New Zealand. Carl Brower is executive publisher at auto trader. The buying tastes in those markets shifted. They shifted away from what General Motors offering to what competitors are offering competitors like the Japanese automakers Toyota and Mitsubishi also for GM selling cars in Australia New Zealand and Thailand. Came with an added cost in all three countries. People drive on the left side of the road and the steering wheel is on the right side of the car. And that's not a small deal because you need an new dashboard. You need to reconfigure the entire Steering System. Which of course is next to the engine and transmission. So you have all kinds of changes under the hood as well. Bernard Sawicki at the Center for Automotive Research says. Gm doesn't want to spend the extra money on engineering and making those cars if it's not gonNA sell that many. He says the company's decision back out of the region is part of an ongoing strategy. Gm really has been very focused on eliminating lines of business where they don't make a satisfactory process the company's trying to save money because it wants to ramp up its production of electric cars and Sam Fiorani at auto forecast solutions says that transition is going to be really hard for a company that's primarily been making internal combustion engines for a century. Now have to change the entire supply line. You have to change the entire development process and so it's going to cost a lot of money and it'll take a lot of money before they're profitable. Gm has been shutting down its unprofitable businesses for a few years now pulling back in Russia Europe and India. I'm Maryelle Cigar for marketplace.

Ginny there was a hundred and eighty thousand homes that went through this PS PS okay so between the you know the California is a hundred eighty thousand homes so what they said is they need to do some about it so another thing that was actually happen is they want to see more batteries in our homes and it that technology is not taking off as quickly as possible so with the state of California is looking at is it looks like this program's gonna roll out in March so you we definitely got some time all the details are not out yeah but there is two fold that with so their skin between two thousand twenty in two thousand twenty four the state's going to be given out I'm one point two billion dollars in the form of rebates to customers for batteries so this is gonna be divided up into two categories so the first category is is if you are affected two times in this last PSP SO if you your power went out two times this year or last year excuse me then you're in potentially eligible so with the cabbie out then you you're low income and if your power went out twice you're low income and you have a medical device in your home that needs power we don't know what all those things are the California energy commission saying that their rebates are expected to cover ninety eight percent of the cost of that battery system to be put in your home so the state's Rebay systems going to cover ninety eight percent of the fit that category so that's what they're saying we don't know the actual numbers yet but even if it's you know ninety percent under enormous Zach Lee right so that's that's one side at the other side of this one point two billion to the being doled out in in the form of you know over a hundred sixty six million dollars a year is is they want to see existing customers that have the ability to instead of putting us portable generator that to use battery technology so they're going to up the ante on rebates to make batteries more attractive for us in our homes because if we have solar on our home the veiled ability to store that energy right on site and then use it at night when the saloon the actual sun goes down the soldiers not producing is absolutely there so the California energy commission sees is that the way to success in the all this with the great in all this solar that's coming on if we look at Hawaii Hawaii right now says if you want solar and wind today you cannot send any electricity back to the grid everything has to be stored on site so if you put in the solar system and why you have to put in solar and battery you cannot just put in the solar system have to have some type of storage device that's where California's move into because we're getting so much solar put on all these roads that you know in March and April when all the soldiers being putting out so all in all this energy and we're not consuming it there's no place for to go so they wanted to go to battery so that we can use it at night so there's center by using us to put in batteries the great thing about batteries is is that now it helps us in this PS PS two it's not gonna run our whole house it's gonna runs critical load in our house so it'll run the lights at a run you know the small load to run the into the microwave it'll run electronics in our home is not gonna run the dryers not gonna if you have a lecture water heaters not gonna run the air conditioning system this this battery technology but it will absolutely help us out in the pants to run things in the home that we need to have operated when the power goes out that that that is true to it it's just going to be an enormous game changer isn't it it is I really believe that the you know this is going to be the side where they want to see more batteries I think this is the Segway to it okay now if you're in this position where you think this program might be for you can a pre register so we can call the one it's announcer who was at work and that would be a good idea is just get the all the pricing and everything down so you're ready when the rebates come out your first in line so all we got to do is get the forms filled out you're ready to go okay can make Kay is that something they can do on the website no that would have to come out and look at the site figure out what K. difference okay interview if you want to do that visit Brower mechanical dot com leave us your name email a telephone number and just put down there that you want to do a what we put more on it with that work whatever yeah okay club or not it would work will come out we'll talk to you about it will show you what your options are and when the program is announced you'll be one of the first in line will be able to come out we'll get you taken care of right that is that fair absolutely beautiful great solution and if you've got a question or comment about today show call or.

"Welcome back to the Brower hold power hour please visit our mechanical dot com to learn more about any of the topics we discuss on the show okay went last segment we spent a little bit of time talking about the Brower revitalization process when it comes to heating and air conditioning systems and just about everybody out there they're talking about tune up to drop tune up what we do is really really difference if really unique I want to talk about it and how to pick your brain a little bit about how did you arrive at this okay very good so easy the normal what we've been accustomed to is a tune up or somebody comes out in a you know go through our heating and air conditioning system and you know they get it to do whatever needs to be done and so we need to look at things a little bit differently so what in one of the things that we really pride ourselves on the revitalization is is that if you're thinking about going solar you really want to look at a revitalization and and what I mean by that is this because if you get ready to go solar whether it's with us or somebody else you're the first thing that that energy that a solar company is going to do is they want to see your energy bills they want to know how much electricity did your heating it how much electricity did your home consume over the entire year so what if that heating and air conditioning what happens a lot of times these things are not rented at peak efficiency because they're so grossly over sized that that system doesn't have to run at peak efficiency to be able to call my house if they were size we're they there wasn't very little air in the system that you didn't have this over capacity you would know when the system's not running right it would much be much easier for all of us to tell when our systems are not running at peak efficiency okay but unfortunately our systems are so oversize their air conditioning systems are so big how we've size the industry's the size air conditioning system they're grossly over sized and so you could have a system that you know ten to twenty even thirty percent inefficient not delivering its full capacity and you wouldn't know it inside the house they would still cool your house so if it was calling your house and was run and with consuming thirty percent more electricity or ten percent you're buying too big a solar system so one of the things that we do when we go through the revitalization is we look at how much energy is a consuming when we get there and then we look at how much energy is a consuming when we're done so that we know how much energy savings actually took place so you know how much you can expect in savings but if you're thinking about going solar you also know how many solar panels you don't need to buy so that's one advantage the other advantages you're not going to get a salesman shows up for our revitalization you're gonna get a technician that is there to act go through your system and revitalize it he's not there to open to sell you a system so the other things when we're actually going through the revised what we looking at we're looking ahead and looking at all the things in that heating and air conditioning system that are comparing it all the different parts and they're comparing to manufacture specs so that you know if you get close to a breakdown you can make that decision you want to replace it now or do you want to wait the other thing is getting that thing like we talked about back to maximum efficiency so you're not having to pay specially MPG territory these high unnecessary rates okay a couple of the things you said about a really big takeaways first one is the technician looks of the components to see if any of them are close to break down because during the summertime the last thing you want is you you do not once someone sitting in a home the sweltering because something broke it we realistically could a cot right and because quite honestly there's a lot of those things out there that are legitimate because people didn't have any idea why would you want to be a member of that club could point well I I'm sorry it's truth in frequently the systems are using so much more energy than they need to deliver that specific result just doesn't make any sense very good points absoluto a mi between these two things it's it's an incredible deal once we get into our our workshops I mean this is almost always a question that comes up should I to not my heating and air conditioning system I really know how to answer that it's not just necessarily that you should turn it up you should certainly revitalized exactly in the manner that you're suggesting because you don't need to be able to come out and do this one it's almost like a tech he told me here you want to tell you you go in and you go at it for a minute see we don't need that we will but that's just not a game that we want to play I I guess that's one of the reasons we've been around forty years is because we kept our nose clean we've done the right thing for our customer good point okay because you're not around for forty years especially in the age of the internet you go on and you can see someone's ratings you can see whether they're good or whether they're bad and the bad ones get eliminated pretty rapidly very subtle you know I this is another reason why we do things for people we do workshops were we buy people dinner you can come in and you can ask the questions if you've got somebody that's coming out and giving you an estimate you're thinking well maybe this is a little higher right maybe it's sketchy maybe I don't really need this this is okay place to get a second opinion to wasn't it absolutely okay you're okay with energy okay because it's a reasonable question absolutely or the other things come to our show interview show room and look at all the different types of energy products that are there so you're absolutely right you know there's different avenues to get the information that you know we still have a guided the energy showroom don't when you could someone you get someone you can ask questions of yeah that's that's a phenomenal deal now

Testimony released from Trump's former Russia adviser

"News just released transcripts from the house impeachment inquiry revealing even more officials testifying under oath that they had a great great concerns about president. Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani's work in Ukraine Fiona Hell of former Russia advisor to president trump. Testifying quote I was extremely family concerned. That whatever was that Mr Giuliani was doing might not be legal. Especially after you know people had raised with me these two gentlemen Parnis and and Fruman Ella E. Fruman of course to Giuliani associates. Who are arrested recently while trying to flee the United States and Lieutenant Colonel Alexander van the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council saying this about the July phone call or president? Trump urged Ukraine's president to help Giuliani. Dig Up dirt on the bites. Let's frankly up until that call you know. In certain regards. He was acting as a private citizen advancing his own interest to a certain extent. It wasn't until that call all that it became that that it became that he was pulled into kind of an official role all right. Let's discuss all of this out front. Now Greg Brower who was an assistant the FBI director Kerry Cordeiro who was the council to the US Assistant Attorney General for national security also with US tonight former Nixon White House counsel John Dean and former Republican congressman. Charlie Dent it has been a very busy news day going through these transcripts from two top White House officials. Carry to start with you witnessed ernest after witnesses testify and they had these concerns about. Giuliani what do you make of this of all. These officials testified that they knew what Giuliani was up to. They had these concerns. They did because we had there was an individual Rudy Giuliani who was not in government. who was doing things that from their perspective? At the as as far as State Department officials are White House officials working on national security related to Ukraine that he was stepping into interfering with what they were trying to carry out as legitimate foreign policy so on one hand you have a person not in government at all who is interfering in national security interests but then the second thing that but it also tells me is that there were a lot of people in the White House who knew what was going on. And it took the whistle blower to actually report it through an official channel Hannele and start that we part of this. I mean you have about it. He'll testifying a lot of people. Knew about what was going on. But you're right. It was the whistle blower who went through those channels. But what's interesting too is just the view of these officials Juliani. You know they're trying to do their official Government Work Greg. Then you have someone going rogue Outsides doing their own thing. I mean it kind of painted this picture of pure chaos when it came to Ukraine Policy Fiona Hill testified that John Bolton Liken Giuliani to a hand grenade alive handgrenade Do you think that's proven to be true. In all of this as you learn more and more Giuliani's role becomes more apparent and and not surprisingly so and and there was also the description of John Bolton oath you know Rudy's drug deal as if to dismiss this. Yeah exactly we have more understand the context around Right that's right and it would be hard enough frankly to have the national security and diplomatic Bureaucracy dealing with some kind of rogue operation if that rogue operation was parallel but legal. But in this case it appears that perhaps it wasn't even a legal rogue operation that not only complicates it's things for the govern- officials who are supposed to be pursuing national security and diplomatic relations but it it creates a whole Potentially impeachable the situation. And that's how it's playing out. It is how it's playing out John because this is all part of this. The Democrats impeachment inquiry. I WANNA bring up. What lieutenant colonel them and testified to who about acting chief of staff and they won't be head Mick? Mulvaney Vin was asked. Do you understand how he saw. Inland came to believe that this deliverable was necessary. This area and then men responded so I heard him say that this had been coordinated with White House Chief of Staff Mr Mick Mulvaney question. What did he say about that answer? He just Said said that he had had a conversation with Mr Mulvaney. And this is what was required in order to get a meeting. How significant is it to you that he testified that the president's acting chief of staff directed this quid pro quo essentially certainly gets closer to the president and and You know whether whether they'll claim that the president had no lodge we don't know yet Feel a hill gave the same testimony. Which cooperates spend Edmund? So it's a pretty strong charge and it certainly puts Mulvaney in the loop No question about that and Pamela. I'd I would just point out at this whole thing is just one giant conspiracy to extort a bribe. And it's very conspicuous. It's just no question and now how deep the president is. That's what the House is going to establish and so do you think this is an impeachable offense then because as we know bribery. According to the constitution is impeachable impeachable. Act John They have managed in this in this instance to come right within the definition of impeachable offenses. Because you the high crimes but how. But if if no one has made that directly to the president then then how do you make that case that he should be impeached impeached. Well you know it's interesting with Nixon When he was impeached they stayed away from conspiracy? Charges There is a reference in in in the minority report of all places that he conspired but the majority the Democrats with Nixon did not charge him with a conspiracy. All of that was very conspicuous. Louis in the in the evidence I so I don't think by precedent. They'll try to draw trump in through conspiratorial actions. They'll look for him being directly involved or enough. They'll look for testimony and we're they're gonNA find that is in the Document the the readout on

"How to save more time and more money I remember Brower upgraded homes are guaranteed to deliver exactly what we say we're going to deliver okay do when I know that some of the solar tax credits are changing and they're changing it right I believe the end of the year I want to talk about the little because that is going to really change the equation a little bit alright it's maybe not dramatic but it's enough that enough of a change that I think we need to talk about I think we need to get the information out there okay so tell me what's going on in that space so like you said this year for any solar system or batteries that tax credits thirty percent now next year it's going to drop a little bit it's gonna go to twenty six percent so not the end of the world but you know if there's an opportunity to save you know four percent by getting the system in this year and then you know maybe it's something that's worthwhile to you can I ask what you said solar or batteries if you want to be a solar and battery you can still go to thirty percent on both of those right the SO good point if their combined to get installed at the same time you're exactly correct so thank you all right they're gonna be installed at the same time okay go I'm sorry I just wanted to be sure that was clear because that in the event that could that retention declares yeah okay so go on please so he like you said you got a lot of different things going on one is the like you said those solar tax credits you know understanding you know what could be that system for you to help you understand your utility bills that could benefit you the most and like you said there's other things that are going on in the spaces you know we've seen a lot of this you know like you talked about earlier that PS PS you know public safety power shut off you know the ability to actually bring in a battery system to handle that critical load with our solar system and so it gives you the ability to operate the solar system in charge this so if we have an event let's just say that the power goes out and and we have the battery system in the solar system that solar system is helping charge the batteries in that event so we're getting the longer life out of the actual when the power goes out it's gonna make my batteries last longer because the solar system is actually still charging my batteries so in one of the advantages of going to a battery system with you knows integrated solar system at the same time is you get a little bit more life out of your batteries when the power goes out then you said critical load when we started this what do you mean by critical load so you know we talk a lot about you know what do people really care about when the power goes out you know and it's different for everybody in a lot of people tell us doing I just want cold beer not showers long as I got bad powers out I'm good okay but you know maybe we want a little bit more than that right so maybe we just don't want the water heater to work in the refrigerator to work maybe you know we got that you know chest freezer in the garage that's full of meat and we want to make sure that that things you know operating may we just want some lights the carry on may want to why find the cable box to work you know so his leg critical load is different all of us sit in my in your critical load bills probably be a little bit different than what mine might be you know so but what we're looking at we're not trying to run the air conditioning system with critical load even now and some people might identify that you're not going to do that with batteries you're gonna have to go to a different type of generators that we either the the standby generator systems that we sell well actually handled the whole house but for the for the inconvenience just to get by when the power goes out so I don't lose food you know we can still do some stuff in the house we can charge your phones you know some that's what we can do with battery technology and and the critical load okay now is this something you talk about your workshops yes correct okay okay well we've got a workshop coming up on July thirty the six forty five members are okay July thirty six forty five you can learn more about that and Brower mechanical dot com you can register also and browny chemical dot com you'll see the icon up in the corner just leave us your name and your email address and your telephone number we'll get you all registered we guarantee you're going to leave with a ton of information you didn't have when you walked in the room and you'll know more than just about anybody else including somebody else that comes out to talk to you about this stuff so be prepared for that right okay it's it just just register for that but so they're gonna learn about critical load and how to pick and choose what it is they want exactly and you know like the other benefits that happen with them you know batteries you know what is so there's other advantages that we have one we can actually run that solar system in battery so let's just say the powers on and we're and they're sort of systems actually generating electricity and so we can actually store that energy that that solar system generates on on site at the house with battery technology so instead of that and normal house without batteries that solar systems would be producing energy and if my house isn't use and all that energy it pushes it back to the grid in my neighbors use that power with battery systems were able to store that extra solar energy incident our neighbors use in it I can stored on site and then when the solar system in because the sun start the set is getting in the evening but I'm still on those high rates of energy use I can pull that power from the battery system instead of utilizing pulling it from the grid and pain high dollars for.

"Brower home power hour. Dwayne before we get going with a segment I wanted to ask you on the home. We talked about last segment. Were there rebates with the work that they had done because a lot of stuff Tom. That's a great question. Absolutely. That's stuff that we do in the attic, boasts mud and Pige me. Give rebates to do in those energy upgrades for the addict, so they got they're able to double end the whole deal. That is not a bad deal point. Did they how much wrestling did they have to do to get those rebates? We handle everything on that end because, you know, in the customers, can actually assign the rebates to us, so they don't even have to do anything. We just actually there's a line item. They just paid that much less if they want the rebates to go to them, they can actually get the rebates assigned to them. So maybe they finance the project and they want the rebates to go to them to go get something nice for the summer, watered toy, or whatever it actually, is that's absolutely in the can be done. So you shoulder the risk. How does it get any better? Okay, do we had this individual call in? And this was a great call in shows about what we do with a clipboard. I just get your ducks in a row. Get a plan designed if this gentlemen would plant would have designed something I think life would have been a little bit easier and a whole lot less expensive. So let's go ahead. And listen to the call. It's a great day for mechanical. Do you. I'm looking for a company that may be able to feel several of my knees. My home. What, what are your new roof attic, insulation, h? Jack can do all of those things. And there, I do have an existing solar system. It'll have to be removed and then reinstalled. Of course. All right. We can take care of that. Also ensure how did you hear about a dip rare mechanical heating, air internet? Oh, I'm counting the most common answer. Well, I was for a company that I'm over here in woodland. Do you guys come this far? Oh, yes, we certainly do, sir. I know a lot of roofers locally and each individual. But I I'm just kind of looking for one stop shopping. If I can find someone call. Oh well, you called the right number. We'll have our men out there for you Tuesday morning at ten AM in any little Email. Oh, one other question. Do you do any gutter fabrication? You know, I don't think we do, but we certainly could range that, well, here's the deal is the way my roof. The house is built in back in twenty nine so it's not doesn't have your typical Rafter tails, Dan, gutter on. Oh, anyhow, I purchase. I have enough gutter to do this job. And in real six inch, copper, gutter. Gorgeous. Yeah. So I probably need to consider L speak about speak with your guy when he comes. Yeah. Utilities provider up there in woodland PGA. All right perfect. And hopefully we can get rebates two. That'd be awesome. Well, it was great talking, Jerry, and we'll see you Tuesday morning. No. Thank you. Thank you, sir. Having great day. Bye before we go any further. The first thing I want I want to talk about is, Jerry is finally formulating a plan. But boy, how much cheaper would that plan have been had he formulated it before he bought his solar and was able to just have that put on at the same time with the roof, the HVAC the insulation, and everything else. You know, it just really makes a ton of sense. I mean he's, he's, he's now thinking in that direction really is. And you got to respect that I mean to the point of his pre purchase the stuff gutters. And you gotta love that, right? And he has hasn't nice product. He said he's that's a six inch copper. So that's a nice, nice. That is a nice product in. We'll be able to help them with a lot of these things. But you just look at this you, you look at some solar installer in, I, I'm just going to assume they didn't pay a lot of attention to his roof. I could be wrong there. I mean, maybe solar for the last twenty years, I rather doubt it, but it's possible. But we see that from time to time don't we have have solar put on the individuals that come out to put solar on a lot of them. This is what they do is solar. They don't do roofs, and they'll put it on anything. They want sometimes and it's really a sad thing. It really is a sad thing. But the fact that he wants all of this stuff he wants a new roof. He wants the insulation. And this gives us an opportunity to really take a strong look at that. Attic, doesn't it hit on two fronts? It's good that he's actually looking at that installation while he's redoing the roof because easier. I do that when that whole riff, but the other thing too, is when we go to get a rough permit that's one of the things that the different cities and counties, make you upgrade, when you get a new roof too. So I don't think he knows that yet. Maybe does that, you know, that's one of the things that it gets incorporated, when you get a new roof and you go to get a permit is that they want you because. Realized the cities and counties, realize that's a great opportunity to actually get the, you know. At least one item in the attic advocates Latian to get that done. So they require you to get it to Arthur eight when you get a new roof and I also know us since he's going with roof and he wants a cool roof. The next thing he's going to have some insulation in each VC. And I know you're going to go out of your way to see if you can't make that air conditioning system, smaller now that freaks people out from time to time. What's your line of reasoning there? So like you said he wants insulation in that that's the first step. But there's other opportunities since he's got that roof off, and it gives us the ability to get that attic rights, there's, you know, a few other things that we want to get the installation, but we want to get that active to be ventilated. Right. Also. So we want to get the installation, right? We want to get sealed. Right. We wanna get the duck installation. Right. We wanna get ventilated, right? Wanna get the attic. So it is a great opportunity if you're thinking about a new roof to have look at all these other things that can be done while all that plywood, and that roofing 's remove so that we can get in. Actually do a lot of different work. And I think when that stuff off, if it makes some of that's a little bit less expensive and easy easing expense. Go hand-in-hand. Okay. I know given the amount of time Brown mechanical it's been around, because you've only been around for forty years. Everybody you were able to find somebody to help him fabricate those gutters. Just you just look at that's one stop shop. He doesn't need to think about anything and best of all, he knows the job's going to be done. Right. So ladies, gentlemen, I'm asking you. Visit brower mechanical dot com. That's brower mechanical dot com. Leave your name, your telephone number, and your Email address. We'll get you a clipboard it. We'll get you taken care of coming up.

"I'm Bill small Dwayne knickerbockers right here. Okay. Dwayne we had a spud customer recently who. Had a deep energy upgrade, and they commented on a video about when the power went off why they weren't concerned. So the power went out last night and. We checked online. We found out that it was going to be out for quite significant amount of time and my husband, and I just looked at each other and knowing that the. Agency's new insulation that have been put in by brower, we weren't going to have to worry about it. We do put out an extra blanket in case, we need to get and we went sleep slept the night through without a problem efficiencies. Work was amazing. Okay. How great is that? I mean, this is a lady who, you know. I saw the video. And this is this is audio. That was stripped from video that we did I want to be that right up front and this lady is sitting there, and she looks like a almost like she's giddy. Happy talking about this because it was going to go out. It was probably pretty cold outside. I it was cold enough that she thought in advance. Well, we should have an extra blanket from what I understand. I don't even think she used it. That's what she said. Okay. You look at that. Now, she had a deep energy upgrade it or what we call a deep energy upgrade could you review real quick what you mean by that. Absolutely. So it's you know, it's just like getting the house to hold all that heat in. So in the wintertime, we're holding all that he didn't. So we did all the things to her home to to be able to do that in the summertime it's to be able to hold that cooling. Yeah. But for her like, she said when the power went out that house was nice and warm, and there was going to be able to stay warm to ride that out. And so what we find is most of the time where we spend the most of our time doing these energy upgrades. Like, you talk about this deep energy retrofit most of the time spent in the attic getting the attic. Right. So what we did in? There is you know, she had a lot of can lights in the house. We went and sealed all those and made sure that there is no way that air to get from the attic through those cans and into the home. So now the thing that we did is we got that the actual addicts eventually. I properly so in the summertime that that addict stays nice and cool. So we don't have to put as much attic insulation in. We once we got the attic all sealed near the can lights all the penetrations. Everything's so that there was just a limited amount of air to go from that attic into the house, then we actually went and.

From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Wednesday. February six you've probably heard this historic line about the US postal workers. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night. Stays these courriers from the swift. Completion of their appointed rounds most of us have grown up with the idea that mail carriers. Stop for nothing. Well, last week's weather really put that promise to the test. The Arctic blast that sent temperatures far below zero in the mid west did indeed, keep some postal workers from delivering the mail, and that was also true for Amazon FedEx and UPS and the twice between using the post office or one of its competitors. Got tougher late last month because post office prices shot up in their biggest hikes in history new forever stamps increased ten percent from fifty to fifty five cents sending a first class package will cost you almost twelve percent more and the cost of send a certified letter also. Oh ballooned. Now does that mean, you should automatically consider UPS? The next time you need to send a package will not necessarily. It turns out both UPS and FedEx also raised their rates about five percent recently, so shipping experts say the post office will still save you money in some instances. And of course, if you happen have stash forever stamps. Well, congratulations. Seems you're sitting on a great investment forever stamps, are just that no matter what price they were. When you bought them Bill always cover the cost of a first class letter.

There's certainly have been loads of questions about the viability of the postal service in recent years last year lost some four billion dollars. You can shock that up to our enthusiasm for Email and social media letters to loved ones are almost all digit. These days, and that drop in mail volume over many, many years really hurts and the post office is struggling to pay for pensions as well as employees and retiree healthcare for a long time. Some critics have wanted to privatize the post office in light of financial troubles. They say privatizing the service would allow it to better negotiate with employees set more realistic benefits to critics of privatization, say private carriers won't feel compelled to deliver to the people in remote places. The bottom of the Grand Canyon say or the far reaches of Alaska. Furthermore, while the postal service and the private carriers do compete for your shipping. Business sending Christmas gifts, for instance, the public and private services actually, cooperate with each other. When it comes to all the stuff, we're buying online. The postal service also happens to serve as the carrier of choice for none other than UPS and Amazon as they try to get their packages. That so called last mile to your house, so hang onto those forever stamps will maybe not forever. But as long as you can because until something structural changes, even this latest price hike.

After the governor announced his suspension, he said he's gonna fight it possibly going to court and he's going to run for re election in twenty twenty. What else did the governor say about the reasons he thought the sheriff needed to be suspended? There were obviously lots of failures to recognize the threat from the gunman beyond the sheriff's office. Right. It was school officials in the FBI. And the were they were called out by the governor today at his news conference as well. But the investigation found systemic problems in Broward sheriff's office response that day, Emily beforehand when. Nichols cruise. The shooter was was called people replace step. He's what is home repeatedly because of problems, but deputies that day when they were interviewed after shooting couldn't recall when if ever they'd had active shooter training, there's a well documented failure of the deputy and school resource officer Scott Peterson to enter the school and try to engage us shooter debt that day. The investigation also found several other deputies failed to move toward the gunfire and try to stop the shooting.
